Homeowners of empty houses paying for garbage


Contract requires charging
for service at vacant homes
BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE When Reinhard Hack
moved to a gated community in Tradition, his
old home remained empty until it sold. What
Mr. Hack didn't expect was a bill for garbage
service from Waste Pro USA.
"I called to discontinue my garbage pickup
when we moved and I was told they can't dis-
continue it," Mr. Hack said. "The house is

empty."
Mr. Hack is still trying to sell his other Port
St. Lucie home, yet is required to pay for
garbage, and recycling service. The same serv-
ice in his new home in Tradition is paid for
through homeowner association fees, he said.
"It bothers me," Mr. Hack said. "(Waste Pro)
said the only way to stop service is if the house
is sold.",
Russell Mackie, Waste Pro division manager
for Fort Pierce, said his company was required
to bid its contract with the city with all homes
in the city included.
"Our price is based on 59,000 residences,
whether they are full or empty," Mr. Mackie


said. "Every single home is charged."
City manager Don Cooper said including
vacant residences in the garbage contract has
been a practice of the city since the 1970s.
"They have to have the capability to service a
home, even if it is vacant," Mr. Cooper said.
Because all homes in the city are billed for
garbage service, residents receive the cheapest
rate, Mr. Mackie said.
"The price would be more if we had to factor
in the empty homes," he said.
In addition to the price, Mr. Mackie said it
would be difficult monitoring which homes

Scholarships show
community

to Florida students
BY ROBIN RINKE
Staff writer
Students like Anna Melnick, a
Fort Pierce senior at Westwood
High School, are working hard to
meet deadlines for scholarship
money for college.
"Preparing and applying for
scholarships has been a difficult
process. It takes time and effort.
Meeting deadlines for all the differ-
ent scholarships is tough. I could
not have done it without the help of


BY MATT DONEGAN
Staff writer
As it does around this time every year, the St.
Lucie County Delegation held its annual
meeting last week to hear funding requests and
bill proposals from dozens of local organiza-
tions and individuals.
Here are some of the highlights from the
daylong meeting held Jan. 4 at Indian River
Community College:

is chairman of the Florida community college

She also said she has applied at

orado and applying to several col-

pursue pre-med and business and
scholarship money would help her
in that pursuit.
Thanks to the high school guid-

In addition, he requested the delegation help
protect $3 million in state capital funding IRCC
has been promised to cover costs for its
planned public safety training complex. The
state legislature must ultimately approve the
funding.
The 30-acre public safety complex will
include a new medical examiner's office and
regional forensics crime lab, and will provide
law enforcement, firefighter and counterterror-
ism training, as well as community preparation
and response. The site will include a firearms
training building, burn tower, tactical training


building and much more.
Dr. Massey said the complex will be "one-of-
a-kind in the nation."
"The FBI in Quantico doesn't even have the
facility we're going to have right here in Fort
Pierce, Florida," he said.

and effort to write and essay,
fill out application forms and
get a couple of references may
have a nice payoff in the
spring.
Each St. Lucie County high
school schedules their own
scholarship and awards pro-
gram in the spring.
Local scholarship money in
St. Lucie County comes from
foundations set up within
organizations, clubs, business-
es, privat-6-individuals and
families.
Mrs. Montgomery said the
state's Bright Futures scholar-
ship money is a huge bonus to
graduating seniors who meet
the criteria.
Funded by the Florida Lot-
tery, Bright Futures provides
seniors with three different lev-
els of scholarship money. The
student's grade point average,


state test scores and commu-
nity service all determine the
amount awarded. Bright
Futures is offered to every sin-
gle high school senior in Flori-
da who plans to attend college
in Florida after graduation.
Mrs. Montgomery said that
Indian River Community Col-
lege is a big player in scholar-
ship money, as well as the St.
Lucie County Education Foun-
dation. Both offer multiple
scholarships for seniors.
"Seniors who have not
applied for any scholarships as
of yet could still ask for help.
Deadlines are in'place, but
many deadlines fall over the
next three months, this is
when we see most of the appli-
cations come in," Mrs..Mont-
gomery said.

Florida Senator Ken
Pruitt and his wife, Aileen,
are the honorary chairs of
the event.
The children created
their masterpieces back in
June, under the guidance
of James Gibson, an origi-
nal Highwayman painter.
"The art turned out
amazing," Ms. Sargent
said. "Most of these kids
'have never had formal art
lessons."
The Highwaymen are a
group of African-American
men who, in the. 1950s,


painted Florida landscapes
and sold their paintings on
the side of the road.
Mr. Gibson spent two
days with the children,
teaching them the funda-
mentals of painting land-
scapes. From there, the
children created two
copies of their works -
one to be auctioned, the
other to keep.
Some of the children
worked on a sculpture with
an ocean theme, which
will also be auctioned at
the event.
The money raised from

dren's Home Society,
which is based in Fort
Pierce.
The organization, which
covers St. Lucie, Martin,
Indian River and Okee-
chobee counties, provides
adoption and fostering
services, as well as family
counseling and mentoring.
This is the second year of
the Kids Love Art event.
"We raised $22,000 last
year, and this year our goal
is $30,000," Ms. Sargent
said.
The event will have
music by the Fort Pierce
Jazz Band, a hors 'doeuvres
buffet and a cash bar.
Some of the Highway-
men artists will be at the
event to sign their paint-
ings.
The young artists will be
at the event, as well.


"Last year, they were
going around and check-
ing what each other's
paintings were getting,"
Ms. Sargent said.
Since the event takes
place just before St. Valen-
tine's Day, there will ,be
plenty of items for auction
that will make good gifts,
Ms. Sargent said.
"We want people to join
us for a wonderful evening
for a great cause," she
added.
The second annual Kids
Love Art event takes place
from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Saturday, Jan. 27, at Tradi-
tion Town Hall in Port St.,

Archie's owner has a heart for the elderly


BY ROBIN RINKE
Staff writer
FORT PIERCE -Patty
McGee, owner of Archie's
Seabreeze bar and restau-
rant, located on A1A in
Fort Pierce, puts her
money where her mouth
is, when it comes to caring
for the elderly.
"My eyes were opened to
the value of senior citizens
the day I hired 92-year-old
'Harold' to assist me in the
office.
"Harold, now at age 97, is
still very much alert and
really smart. I see him as a
Valuable person. He's a
good friend of mine," Ms.
McGee said.
Angela Johnson, a part-
time employee of Archie's,
and full-time employee at
the Council of Aging, knew
Ms. McGee's heart when it
came to the elderly and
approached her with the
idea of being a part of the
Council on Aging's "Feed
Santa Lunch" program this
past holiday season. For-Ms.
McGee it was an easy yes.
Archie's also became an
official donation drop-off
center for gifts to give to
senior citizens living at
assisted living centers that
use the transit system.
"It was really exciting to
be a part of the donations,
but even more exciting was
knowing that senior citi-,
zens were being remem-
bered, "Ms. McGee said.
She said her customers
were so giving that her
vehicle was "stuffed full"
on transportation day. She
added that one customer
went all out and made
huge, beautiful baskets
that were "wrapped and
gorgeous."'
She felt this event pulled
the beach community in
her area together.

sit director for Council on
Aging of St. Lucie, and June
Dunn, transit road opera-
tions director, were direct-
ly responsible in organiz-
ing the transit to deliver
the gifts. They do a great
job," Ms. McGee said.
"These two ladies also
organize the free ride pass-
es on the transit system in
December. That's a special
deal for seniors and the
public."
Ms. Arbore said, "It's
people like Patty that help
us in our efforts to make


the'elderly feel'special."
Ms. McGee said that she
went to one of the assisted
living centers to watch the
elderly receive their gifts.
"They were so excited as
they waited for the transit
to deliver Santa and the
gifts. They were all dressed
up. One sweet lady even
had on her hat and gloves.
"I would love to see more
people involved with car-
ing for the elderly. It does-
n't take much. All they real-
ly want is companionship.
"I'd be willing to organ-


ize 'Take a Senior Citizen to
Lunch Day,' Ms. McGee
said.
"Just think what it would
be like if we had, an Adopt
a Senior Citizen' program
in the area."
At Ms. McGee's sugges-
tion, Ms. Arbore and- Ms.
Dunn both said it might
even be possible to have
the Easter Bunny "hop" on
the transit in the spring to
again deliver gifts to some
of the transit, using seniors
at the assisted living cen-
ters.

Delegation
From page A7


directly east of the plant,
which was the location of a
trailer park wiped out by
hurricanes.
FPUA also requested $10
million for the plan at last
year's delegation meeting
and, when all was said and
done, ended up receiving
$7.9 million.
*While he was at the
podium, Mayor Benton
also requested an addition-
al $6 million for an A1A
redevelopment project
that's currently underway.
The state awarded the city
$12 million for the project
in 2003.
*Honoring a request
from St. Lucie County
Administrator Doug
Anderson, the delegation
tabled a request for state
funding for infrastructure at
the future Cloud Grove
development site.
The 7,400-acre town of
Cloud Grove, which will be
located predominantly in
northwest St. Lucie County
with about 1,400 acres in


Indian River County, takes
advantage of the Rural
Land Stewardship Program.
It will be constructed on
land owned by the Alto
"Bud" Adams Jr. family. In
return, the Adams family
gets incentives for protect-
ing 12,000 of their more
than 16,000 acres, barring
future development there.
*Port St. Lucie City
Manager Don Cooper
requested $5 million in
matching funding to
replace the Ravenswood
Community Center. The
center would be used not
only for recreation, but also
as a hurricane shelter and
post-recovery services
center, as well as a location
for Indian River Communi-
ty College adult education.
The city of Port St. Lucie
would pick up the remain-
ing $5 million tab.
*The county's lone
funding request was for $3
million to acquire a 29-acre
parcel in the middle of St.
Lucie County International
Airport. The county needs
the land to assure a good
view of a proposed runway
from the tower.
The prison system
While at the podium


requesting money for the
airport land, Mr. Anderson
also let the delegation know
about a few other requests
that affect counties
statewide.
*First, due to the state's
zero tolerance policy for
probation violators, he said
county jails are left housing
numerous amounts of state
prisoners. The St. Lucie
County Jail, for example,
houses 400 state prisoners
at a cost of $7.3 million a
year to local taxpayers.
"It is not fair with the zero
tolerance that the local
governments should pick
up the cost," he said, asking
for a change in the way this
is handled.
*In another statewide
issue, he pointed out that
each county pays different
amounts for inmate care
received at public hospitals.
Mr. Anderson actually
negotiates the rate St. Lucie
County pays to local
hospitals for this service.
Currently, the county pays
65 percent of an inmate's
hospital bill. This is $3,500 a
day more than what the
county would be paying if
the inmates were treated
using the Medicaid per


diem rate, he said. Inmate
hospital care costs county
taxpayers $730,000 a year
more than what they'd be
paying if hospitals charged
the Medicaid per diem rate
instead of the negotiated
rate, he said, asking the
delegation to propose
making law an initiative
that would force hospitals
to charge the Medicaid per
diem rate.
*Inmate matters were the
only issue the St. Lucie
County Sheriff's Office
brought before the delega-
tion. Rather than ask for
funding, the office request-
ed amendments to existing
statutes.
"One of the greatest costs
we have outside of the
direct care and custody of
inmates in the county jail is
defending lawsuits that
come out of the county
jail," said Adam Fetterman,
general counsel to the
sheriff's office.
A major part of that
problem comes from a
barrage of frivolous law-
suits, such as complaints of
insufficient footwear, bright
lighting or noise, from
pretrial detainees, Mr.
Fetterman explained.


These detainees are not
classified as prisoners and
can therefore file suit
without their claim being
subject to review for
determination of whether it
is legally sufficient. On the
other hand, prisoners,
defined as those who are
convicted of a crime and
are incarcerated for that
crime, must go through a
review.
Mr. Fetterman wants to
change the definition of
"prisoner" to include
anyone who is being held
pending trial, extradition or
custody.
"That change will bring
great cost savings to the
taxpayers of St. Lucie
County as well as clear up
some of the backlog in our
courts," he said.
For the children
*Among the numerous
child advocacy organiza-
tions requesting funding '
was the Healthy Start
Coalition of St. Lucie
County.
Saying the local coalition
has been one of the most
"shortchanged" Healthy
Start programs in the state
since its inception, director
Sylvie Kramer requested
$3.2 million for 2007.
The money would go
toward Healthy Start's
mission of preventing
infant mortality and


helping at-risk mothers
receive the care they need
for a healthy pregnancy and
baby.
In addition, Ms. Kramer
also requested $8 million
for the local Healthy
Families program, which
provides necessary family
supports for three to five
years after a child is born.
*Another organization
aimed at improving the
lives of children, the Early
Learning Coalition of St.
Lucie County, likewise
asked for help.
The coalition has had its
same $9.2 million yearly
allotment since it started
seven years ago. The
problem is that enrollment
in the School Readiness
Program has grown since
then from 1,900 to 2,800
children, said Anthony
Loupe, chairman of the
coalition's board.
Due to lack of funding,
Mr. Loupe said 140, 9 and
10 year olds were recently
disenrolled, and 500
children are on the waiting
list. He projects a deficit of
$437,000 by the end of the
fiscal year.
"We may have to go down
the age groups and disen-
roll children," he said. "Thait
means we may have 6,7
and 8 year olds being
latchkey children."

AFRICAN JEWELRY O
The vast continent of

Northern Africa is noted ..
for the silverwork, plain

people. South of the
Sahara, crafts people in
the great medieval king-
doms made rings, ear-

other ornaments out of
gold (Ghana), amber

(Benin), and bronze
(Yoruba). Beads of shell
and of glass have long
been important ele-

adornment all over
Africa. Jewelry has also
been used as a vehicle
for religious symbols, as
in the crosses of
Ethiopia and the
amulets of northwestern

elry echoes many tradi-

It's a Fort Pierce dog's life

I just saw on a television news program, that Califor-
nia has passed a law prohibiting dogs, from being tied up
outside for more than three hours at a time.
Some dogs in Fort Pierce and St. Lucie County spend
their entire lives tied up to trees and posts, and in cages.
Imagine the little Christmas puppy that will grow up to
spend their entire life locked in a cage or tied ul5.
I've read in the paper recently that some worthy cause
has been promoting a dog training and education pro-
gram for $80. The people who really need this program
cannot afford it.
Dog owners should get free shots and spay or neuter-
ing when they attend such a program. They shouldn't
have to pay. Imagine the good results, of real kindness to
animals. People who are cruel to their animals spend
serious time in hell.

Inexcusable rant

I thought the rant "Are you one of those people," mak-
ing reference to the people from up North, was inexcus-
able. You need to have them coming down here. I just
don't think it was the nicest thing for your newspaper.

Where are the decorations in St. Lucie West?

I wonder why Don Cooper and the powers-that-be
don't put Christmas decorations out in St. Lucie West.
Port St. Lucie Boulevard and Gatlin Boulevard have
Christmas decorations. Primavista Boulevard and New-
port have decorations, too.
The people in St.. Lucie West must be a bunch of
orphans out there or something. They pay as much taxes
as anybody else does.

Animal Control in Florida
Hello to the kiindperson who responded to a rant that
dogs should not be tied up outside all night. That person
suggested that you punch the abusive owner in the
head, take their dog away and find it a new home.
Anyone who did that would be charged with assault-
ing the owner and stealing their pet.
If animal abuse is reported to the police,, they say Ani-
mal Control will look into it. And Animal Control, if they
come out at all, will say they can't do anything about it
and to call the police after 10:30 p.m. if the animal is still
crying at night.
Animal Control in Florida is a joke and unenforceable.
Southern folk treat dogs like cattle, especially hunting
dogs and the puppies at puppy mills.

You can kiss paradise good-bye

I'm responding to the rant "Don't bite the Northern
hand that feeds you."
Northern people saying they are the 'bread and butter
of Florida' must have never heard the saying, "I'd rather
be poor in Florida, than rich in New York."
I certainly/ don't believe that they spend the $40,000
down here that someone said. They are really only mid-
dle class.
They come down here and try to change our traditions
with their rude and obnoxious ways. Not to mention the
traffic. We have to spend our money bn their children, to
build more schools, sidewalks, electricity lines and
lights. According to a Port St. Lucie paper, their kids don't
even go to school because they are always in trouble.
. Our peaceful ways have changed. Our coastal water-
ways used to be home to birds, raccoons, fish and other
wildlife.
By having a home up North in the summer and a con-
dominium down here in the winter, these selfish people
want their cake and they want to eat it too.

We all know what comes out of condos, human waste,
and it's destroying our river.
They are driving our taxes sky-high and have taken
over our city government. There are hardly any people in
our city government from Florida, who understand the
problems.
Florida is built on water and water is our most precious
commodity. Florida has been here for millions of years
and we need to keep it beautiful, peaceful and rough.
Northerners want to turn it into something it is not. They
want to mold it into what they want it to be and then sell
it to developers.*
In a nutshell, they are ruining the South Florida way of
life. If you call this "paradise," you can kiss it good-bye.
They are absolutely ridiculous.

Massive nuclear storage waste facility
on Hutchinson Island

We residents of Port St. Lucie worry about traffic issues
and this and that, but it's irrelevant.
Out there on Hutchinson Island, Florida Power and
Light is building a massive nuclear storage waste facility.
And since we all likely live west of the plant, no one
seems to care.
However, if there is an accident out there and the sea
breezes blow, there will be none of us left to worry about
running around in traffic congestion.
It wasn't any issue for the new mayor or any of the
Commissioners, because they failed to tell anybody.
Let everybody know what's going on out there on
Hutchinson Island.

Where is the city government?

Today we decided to visit Fort Pierce to see all of the
wonderful improvements we have been reading about in
the Palm Beach Post. Actually, our purpose was to visit
the chocolate factory on U.S. 1, which was wonderful as
always..
So, after that visit we decided to walk down to St. Lucie.
Village and see the Indian River Lagoon.
We walked east on Hunt Avenue and were very, very
shocked.
There were old boats and cars, garbage cans, other
broken junk and debris thrown everywhere. However,
this was not at all houses. The junk was mostly on the
South side of Hunt Avenue.
There were also howling, starving dogs, tied up to
trees, and the smell was absolutely aweful. It was very
disgusting.
We will stay away in the future. I have never seen such
a mess.
Where is the city government? Don't they have some
basic rules for people who don't care how they live?

Where are the beautiful sand hill cranes?

Did the UPS truck, delivering some junky Christmas
gifts, race through the park and kill a family of three sand


I1


hill cranes?
The busy Christmas season brought with it the busy
trucks and cars speeding through the narrow roads of the
Spanish Lakes and golf village, which spelled doom fro
three beautiful sand hill cranes.
One was spotted recently with an injured leg and Ani-
mal Control following it with nets, but the bird flew off in
time. Did a UPS driver or a visitor kill these birds?
Before the next Christmas mayhem season, the owner
of the park should place a sign at the entrance with a pic-
ture of the cranes, which also live here.
I miss them very much.

The best place to fish is the South Jetty

The absolute best place in Florida to fish is the South
Jetty in Fort Pierce, anytime, day or night. But, there is no
place to park there, day or night.
'If Fort Pierce wants to attract tourists, why not develop
some parking at the beach and jetties?
More condominiums and hotels won't attract tourists,
just tax dollars for more fancy sidewalks ad deserted
shopping areas.
I have a bicycle. Bike trails and parking at the beach
would really help. Perhaps the paper could publish a
map of bike trails in St. Lucie County, because I can't find
it anywhere.

Florida dog-raising rules

I am responding to the ranter who objected to dogs
being tied up outdoors in the rain and bad weather.
That person doesn't know the Florida dog-raising
rules.
Dogs are bred here to fight other dogs, to hunt hogs
and ride in the backs of pick-up trucks. They are usually
pit bull and Rottweiler mixes.
The owners, who. have to make money somehow
because they are too stupid to hold a job, raise dogs and
sell them.
They beat them because it makes them feel important
when the dog cries. After a while, the dog stops crying.
You used to be able to tell whether a dog was abused by
if its tail was between its legs all the time. But now, the
jerks just cut the tail off completely. These creeps are
everywhere in Fort Pierce and the Animal Control does
nothing about it at all. They just say that the cruelty is not
against any local law.

This country is falling apart

I cannot believe that his country has come down to
dropping a ball with some idiot raving and jumping up
and down to bull-crap rap music. This country is going
down the tubes.
Somebody better change this, or these kids are not
going to have any kind of life in this world.
I'm 55 years old and have been here a long time, and I
hate to say this. But, this country is falling apart. Like
every great democracy, they're done in 500 years. It woff't
take long now. Happy 2007.

Daily boat toursavailable
of the Indian River Lagoon
BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
STUART The warm ocean breeze
-blew through our hair as we welcomed
2007 from the waters of the Indian River
Lagoon.
My husband, Matt, and I were aboard
the Island Princess for New Years festivi-
ties. In its fifth season under new owners
Capt. Bob and Lori Miller, the boat sails
daily on the river year-round.
During the day, year-round, they offer
scenic tours of the Indian River. They set
sail at night for special occasions, such as
New Years and the Fourth of'July.
The Island Princess has a full bar and a
,delicious menu of specially prepared
foods for tourists and locals alike, the
Millers said.
"We want people to get off and say the
food is as good as any restaurant," Mrs.
,'Miller said.


The food was good on our trip. We had
prime rib, with fresh green beans and
potatoes. It was served with a salad and
rolls.
SAfter dinner we went on top to the
upper deck for entertainment. While sail-
ing south on the Indian River toward
Jupiter Island, fireworks exploded around
us, lighting up the natural beauty of the
area.
"There are a lot of people who live in the
area who haven't really experienced the'
area from the water," Capt. Miller said.
During the daytime tours, Capt. Miller
narrates about the wildlife they encounter
on the river. The couple said dolphins are
frequently spotted at the bow of the boat,
riding the waves.
The Island Princess is an 82-foot boat,
which is U.S. Coast Guard-certified to
hold 142 passengers. It has been in service
since 1988, always out of the Hutchinson
Island Marriott Beach Resort and Marina.
The lower deck is enclosed, so the weath-
er doesn't affect tours.

Delegation
From page Al
Florida, Florida Atlantic University and
Indian River Community College offices,
as well as 4,000 square feet of incubator
space.
The 1,600-acre park is so far home to the
USDA's National Horticulture Research
Lab and its Natural Resources Conserva-
tion Services office, the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Consumer
Services Division of Plant Industry, St.
Lucie County School District Agri-Science
Education program, the county's coopera-
tive extension service and the University
of Florida's Indian River Research and
Education Center.
The latter center's director, Brian Scully,
also appeared before the delegation,
requesting $700,000 for aquaculture
research at both the Indian River Research
and Education Center and the Tropical
Aquaculture Laboratory in Hillsborough
County.
WaterWorld
*The heads of the nonprofit Ocean
Research & Conservation Association
requested $350,000 in matching funds to
develop a unique system that they say
could revolutionize water quality monitor-
ing throughout the country.
Numerous high-tech sensors that would
be placed in local waters would track
water temperature, salinity, direction and
speed, water clarity, wave heights and
patterns, and even certain marine life, said
Dr. Edith Widder, president & senior
scientist.
The sensors would be monitored by cell
phone, allowing for real-time condition
' reporting.
The technology would allow scientists to
figure out where problems are originating
and inform the public of what's happen-
ing.
The Office of Naval Research already
supports the plan.
*Valerie Paul, head scientist at the
Smithsonian Marine Station in Fort Pierce,
requested $250,000 for a partnership
project with Florida Atlantic University to
conduct an inventory of marine life in the
Indian River Estuary.
*Karen Smith, representing the St. Lucie
and Indian River Issues Team, requested
$19.4 million to improve the conditions of
the St. Lucie Estuary and Indian River
Lagoon.
Public legislation requests
*Port St. Lucie's JodiWalsh petitioned
the delegation to help revise Florida
Statute 827.03, which defines the abuse of


children, to include language that recog-
nizes emotional and mental abuse.
Last year, Ms. Walsh saw a child abuse
case against the father of her 9-year-old
get thrown out of court because the state
only recognizes child abuse as a physical
act, not a verbal one.
In this case, the man was accused of
telling Ms. Walshes son to get a knife and
kill his mother.
*Port St. Lucie resident Caryn Lones
beseeched the delegation to do something
to control local government millege rates.
Senator Ken Pruitt, R-Port St. Lucie, said
the issue is "a problem."
"The average family out there is hurt-
ing," he said. "The legislature is paying
attention to this. We hear you loud and
clear."
Senator Pruitt pointed out that property
tax relief is among the top issues for new
Republican governor Charlie Crist.
Development and infrastructure
*Fort Pierce Utilities Authority director
Bill Thiess, backed by Fort Pierce Mayor
Bob Benton and St. Lucie County Com-
missioner Chris Craft, requested $10 for a
project that would redirect wastewater
flow from the wastewater reclamation
facility on Hutchinson Island to a planned
$56 million wastewater plant on Glades
Road. The design for the new plant is 25
percent complete, Mr. Thiess said.
After the flow is diverted via extensive
piping and new pump stations, the
Hutchinson Island site would be decom-
missioned and parts of the land sold to a
developer.
The overall project is estimated at $86
million, though that figure is expected to
increase significantly when the Hutchin-
son Island plant is decommissioned and
demolished. A "tremendous portion" of
the cost of the project could be recovered
in the value of the land alone, said Rep.
Stan Mayfield, R-Vero Beach.
Commissioner Craft said the intention of
those involved is to use "every dime" made
on the sale of the property to pay for the
replacement of the water reclamation
facility. He said he wants to send out a
worldwide request for proposal for the
site.
The city of Fort Pierce is planning a
February workshop to gain public input
on the plan. Mayor Benton expects the
public will want access to the waterfront
while other parts of the land are devel-
oped. A major hotel resort has been
discussed for the site.
The mayor revealed that the city has
started talks with the owner of the land

Downstairs Gallery hosts Ron
Winarski in January
The Downstairs Gallery will host Ron
Winarski as its guest artist in January.
An opening meet-and-greet reception
will take place from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on
Friday Jan. 12, at the gallery, located at 909
E. New Haven Ave., in the Arcade Build-
ing, in Fort Pierce.
Mr. Winarski's sculptures are life-size,
3D depictions of marine animals, created
by combining dozens of pieces of Florida
driftwood. The combined driftwood
pieces create dynamic portrayals of the
size, power and beauty of these animals.
The driftwood also reinforces the con-
nection of these animals to their environ-
ment. When stained and sealed, they also


provide a rich textured wood finish.
Light refreshments will be served.
For information, call (772) 727-8470, or
visit www.downstairsgalleries.com.
Lafferandre Gallery to feature art
of Amy Adams Cooper in January
Amy Adams Cooper, former owner of
the Lafferandre Gallery, is returning to
exhibit her art in the gallery this month.
Her son, Samuel, will also be exhibiting
his work.
The Lafferandre Gallery is located at
205 N. Second St., in downtown Fort
Pierce.
Their work will remain on exhibit
through January.

"We can go rain or
shine," Mrs. Miller said.
The downstairs is also air
conditioned, so summer
tours are not a problem,
she added.
The couple moved to
Stuart from Delray Beach
five years ago, when they
bought the Island Princess.
"I've run boats most of
my life," Capt. Miller said.
"I've always had it in my
mind to own my boat. My
wife says it's my dream and
her nightmare."
Mrs. Miller worked at
Delray Medical Center
when she made the jump
to the marine business.
The couple both grew up


in Florida and met on a
boat 16 years ago. Capt.
Miller has always worked
on yachts, providing high-
end service, which the
couple tries to recreate on
the Island Princess.
"The service and the
quality of the food is what
we try to bring to this busi-
ness," Capt. Miller said.
Entertainment during
special events and holi-
days is provided by local
singer, Curtis Hill. Mr. Hill
sang the New Year in dur-
ing our voyage, getting
passengers on their feet,
dancing.
"We get him because he
is a showman," Mrs. Miller


said. "Our customers love
him."
In addition to providing
daily tours and holiday
specials, the Island
Princess is available for
private charters, such as
weddings and corporate
functions.
We enjoyed our night
cruise and are looking for-
ward to going during the
day to take in the beauty
the Indian River Lagoon
. has to offer.

,instantly knew a tire blew,"
Mr. Little said. "A split sec-
ond later I heard a boom as
I hit the concrete barrier.
The next thing I knew, I
was sitting there, with my
seatbelt on and blood all
over the place."
The accident happened
late in the eVening of Nov.
28, when Mr. Little was
returning from a business
trip in Palm Beach County.
He was about a mile south.
of the Jupiter exit when the
accident occurred. ::
There was light traffic at
the time, Mr. Little said,
and he was attempting to
pass a tractor-trailer when
the tire blew.
"The trucker came over
to see if I was OK," he said.
"He told me I needed to get
out of the car in case it
explodes. I stepped out
and my left arm was dan-
gling."
At the time, Mr. Little
had no idea his car had
rolled.
"The trucker said my car
rolled over five or six
times," Mr. Little said. "I
didn't believe him at first.
My mind had blocked out
the part where I rolled."
The driver's side door
came open during the
accident and Mr. Little's
left arm took the brunt of
the accident. He had
debris, embedded in his
arm, and it was broken in
several places.
Although ,Mr. Little was
wearing his seatbelt, he


still sustained a head
injury, requiring 25 staples
in his scalp. His right hand
needed eight staples.
"It was a miracle I sur-
vived," Mr. Little said. "If
anyone else had been in
the car, they wouldn't have
survived."
Mr. Little had neck sur-
gery more than 11 years
ago, where doctors put a
metal plate and several
screws into his neck. Luck-
ily, his neck was fine.
Since his accident, Mr.,-
Little has been relying on
the kindness of others. He
owns Treasure Coast Print-
ing and Graphics, in 'Stu-
art, and has been unable to
work. He is right-handed
and types on his computer
with one finger, while his
left hand heals.
Because Mr. Little owns
his own business, he does
not have medical insur-
ance. He has personal
injury protection as part of
his auto insurance policy,
but it maxes out at $10,000.
"It is the only thing I
have that has covered any
aspect of the accident,"
Mr. Little said.
Thanks to the generosity
of people on the Treasure
Coast, Mr. Little was able
to pay his bills for Decem-
ber, as well as pay for med-
ical supplies not covered'
by his insurance.
"The Stuart/Martin
County Chamber of Com-
merce has been wonder-
ful," Mr. Little said. "As


soon as they heard about
the accident, they very
quickly sent out an e-mail
to -members about the
accident. I've gotten a lot
of nice e-mails, cards and
well wishes."
Mr. Little has been a
member of the chamber
for 15 years, and has been
generous to numerous
organizations in the area.
He estimates that in his 15
years in the Treasure Coast
area,' he' has donated
$50,000 in both cash and
services.
Joe Catrambone, presi-
dent of the Stuart/Martin
County Chamber of Com-
merce, said there was no
question about helping
Mr. Little after his acci-
dent.
"He is a long-standing
member who has always
helped us, especially when
we needed something in a
hurry or we didn't have the
funds," Mr. Catrambone
said. "He is a member of
our community who fell
down on tough luck and
we needed .to do whatever
we could to help."
If anyone would like to
help Rick Little, dona-
tions can be made at any
Harbor Federal Bank
branch under the name
Richard H. Little, through
paypal.com or mail
donations directly to Mr
Little at 1533 S.E. Royal
Green Circle, Apt. C204,

Minimum wage increase helps teens and older workers


By ROBIN RINKE
Staff writer
STUART Grinding up
coffee beans and serving a
French vanilla grande-
latte with whipped cream
just got sweeter for 16-
year-old Mya Read, an
employee of Dunkin
Donuts on Kanner High-
way in Stuart.
Mya just found out
about the 27-cent mini-
mum wage increase she
received beginning Jan. 1.
"That's cool. I didn't
know about it. You mean I
will get a raise?" Mya said.
Mya was pleasantly
surprised by the good
news and welcomed the
increase.
"The extra money will

pay my car insurance,"
Mya said.
The increase from $6.40
per hour to $6.67 per hour
was put into effect Jan. 1.
Nov. 2, 2004, Florida
voters approved the
minimum wage constitu-
tional amendment by
more than 70 percent. The
increase covers all
employees in the state
covered by the federal
minimum wage.
Florida's minimum wage
is $1.52 more than the
current $5.15 federal
minimum wage which
was a hot topic during the
elections last November.
Agency for Workforce
Innovation performs an
annual calculation to
establish a new minimum
wage each year. Voters in



SG II


each state decide the
states fate.
Teenage employees such
as Mya, who work more
than 20 hours a week, will
see an extra $8 to $10 per
week on their paychecks.
Many teens work to pay
for car insurance, clothes
and weekend entertain-
ment.
"Most minimum wage
earners, are teens and
older workers who work
tough jobs part time jobs
that do not require a lot of,
skill," Gwenda Thompson,
president and chief
executive officer of
Workforce Development
Board of the Treasure
Coast.
"They are paid to be on
time to do a task that
helps the whole of the


.business, if they were not
there, the task would fall
into the hands of those
doing other tasks.
"Because of this we do
not anticipate upset
employers to (lash back)
at the increase. We did not
see it from them with the
last increase and feel we
will see the same attitude
this time," Mrs. Thompson
said.
What the Work Force
Development Board has
seen with most employers

"There is no way to con-
trol or police it," Mr. Mack-
ie said.
He added that if the
company made exceptions
with bills for vacant
homes, then customers
could call up, claiming
their homes are empty,
when in reality the homes
are occupied.
"It would open Pandora's
Box," Mr. Mackie said.
"Our drivers go out and
whatever is out, they pick
it up. We deal with 1,400
houses a day and it would
be hard to give the drivers
a list of 200 vacant homes."


When Waste Pro submit-
ted its bid to Port St. Lucie
last year, it included a
yearly rate that could be
included on homeowners'
property tax bills. The city
is considering placing the
garbage bill on the tax bill.
"Lots of cities and
municipalities pay their
garbage in their taxes," Mr.
Mackie said. "Unincorpo-
rated St. Lucie County pays
for it in their taxes."
Mr. Mackie said garbage
service could be as cheap
as $17.50 a month if Waste
Pro's bill is included on the
property tax bill.
-Residents currently pay


$24.50 a month for
garbage and recycling
service, and are billed
every three months.
"We're really trying to
be very good partners
with the city and resi-
dents," Mr. Mackie said.
"But there just is not a
viable alternative out
there than having every-
one pay."
Until he sells his home,
Mr. Hack said he will not
pay for garbage service he
doesn't need.
"I'm sure there are
many, many people who
are not aware of this," Mr.
Hack said.

A CAR DEALER YOU CAN TRUST


his headline will
probably get me in
trouble with some of my
fellow car dealers. I used it
to get your attention and
because it is the common
public perception that car
dealers are not to be
trusted. But I also used
it because too many car
dealers still "don't get it".

If you are ethical, bright,
and seeking a job that you
look forward to doing every,
day, I. ask you to consider
joining our team at
Earl Stewart Toyota.
We recently moved
into our newly
completed Toyota
dealership on the
North Palm Beach
Lake Park US-1 border.
We. doubled our size and
we have a need for new
team members.


We often hire and train people
from outside the car business
because it is easier to find
people with no car dealership
experience who fit our unique
culture. However, even if you
are working in a car dealership.
today but are not proud of what
you do or how you do it, maybe
Earl Stewart Toyota is the place
you should consider.

Briefly, these are some of the'
things we do differently from
most other car dealers:

(1) We offer our customers
and employees direct access
to the owner, me Earl Stewart.
That means my home and cell
telephone numbers, It means 4
RED HOTLINE telephones in
the dealership which connect
directly to my cell phone. It


"EARL STEWART"

means that when you call Earl
Stewart Toyota there is no one
screening my calls (or any other
employee's calls) and you are
connected directly, always. It
means that my office door is
always open and'anyone can
just walk in for a chat.


(2) Our policy is that it is
not important whether our
customers are "right or wrong"
about an issue. If the customer
"believes" she is right, we do
whatever is necessary to make
her happy. That can include full-
refunds on new or used vehicles.
I empower every member of my
team to spend or do whatever is
necessary to make' a customer
-happy if a supervisor is not
immediately available to handle
a complaint.


(3) We are the only
car dealer I know who
does not add a "fee" to the
price of the new and used
vehicles, after the agreed
upon price. These fees
range from $595.50 to
$895.90 and have various
names like Delivery
fees, Documentation
fees, Fees & Services,
and Dealer Services.
We also do not add a
"miscellaneous supplies
charge", "environmental
fee"or 'some other form
S_ of hidden dealer profit
Sto customers' service
bills. This extra fee
V usually ranges from
.. 5% to 10% of the
.service bill. We do
not "price gouge" by
charging over sticker
price for high demand
cars like the Toyota
Prius and FJ Cruiser.

(4) We treat our customers
and our employees like we treat
our friends and family. That is a
phrase you have heard often
before and, unfortunately, it is
misused often. At Earl Stewart
Toyota we really mean it and we
"walk the talk"*



If our culture sounds like
one that fits with your
ideas on the way business
should be conducted,
please call us.

561*844*3461

We need to add to our team
in all departments... sales,
service, parts, body shop,
and accounting.

RINGING IN THE NEW YEAR
It's that time of the year again---time for resolutions. People are considering what
positive life changes they can make, and planning ways to make personal and family
goals a tangible reality in the year ahead. If one of your goals is to become more finan-
cially secure, a highly reliable means of accomplishing that is through expanding your
Real Estate Investments.
Real estate over the past 50 years has proven to be one of the strongest longterm
invesnnent available, demonstrated by the fact that the national median home price
has increased 88% over the past ten years. The demand for real estate is always expand-
ing fueled by the ever-growing population and immigrating families.
In spite of what you may think---2006 will be the third best performing year on
record for home sales nationally and economists predict about the same level of activi-
ty in 2007. Over the last year sellers have had to adjust to the market transition and are
offering more competitive pricing in addition to incentives. Mortgage interest rates are
still near historic lows and there are loan products available for just about anyone. In
most areas there are many homes to choose from and time allowed for negotiation.
Overall, we have one of the most favorable markets for buyers in several years.
If you would like to discuss what type of mortgage loan will work best for you, call
Christy Hauge at Palm Beach Financial Network, 772-283-7111 or email your
question to chauge@pbfn.com, or. visit her office at

Romancing the Stove
with Arlene Borg, the Grammy Guru

Delicious, healthy quiches, a great
appetizer and a gelatin salad


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well


Making


the


move


toward


exercise

I think that almost
everybody, every
year, resolves to
exercise more.
We all know that we
should; we know that it's
good for us for a lot of
reasons. We know that.
we'll look and feel better,
and our clothes will fit
better. If that's true, why
aren't we all exercising
fools?
I think it may be that
getting started is one
part of the equation, and
maintaining enthusiasm
for it is another part. You
have to be willing to
work oi both ends to
make exercise work for
you.
This year, instead of
writing about choosing a
fitness center, which is
not an option for many
of you because of cost,
distance or shyness, I
thought I'd talk about
"The Power of One."
That's my way of
suggesting making one
change in your routine
at a time. Trying to train
for a marathon when you
haven't run before is a
prescription for failure.
The first thing to do is
to examine your day and
see where you can
incorporate exercise.;
Can you walk to work or
the store instead of
driving? Can you park in
a distant space and walk
to your destination,

I See ALIVE, B3


Hello, smart shoppers. I
hope you had a good
week!
I am available for talks. Call
the paper at (772) 465-5656.
Be sure to read the ordering
instructions for my cookbook at
the end of the column.
Today's column will give you a
wonderful appetizer, thanks to
Christy Watts.
Then we will enter a forbid-
den world for those of you who
must watch the fat and choles-
terol. We're going to make
quiche. Stick with me; I will give
you alternatives that will allow
you to eat this normally high-
fat, high-cholesterol food.
I have spent many hours
checking recipes, adding,
changing and subtracting to see
if a low-fat quiche could be
accomplished. I came up with
one that turned out to be more
bread than quiche. No good.
I finally created recipes that
will make all quiche lovers
happy. The major source of fat
is in the crust. If there is a low-
fat crust out there, I can't find it.
Remember, when I speak of fat,
many times I'm referring to
saturated fat.
Most fat-free cheeses taste
like wax and will not melt. Kraft
fat-free slices are really good,
and they melt the way cheese
should. They come in Ameri-
can, Swiss, cheddar and moz-
zarella.
Romano and Parmesan
cheeses are high in fat, and the
amount can be reduced if you
choose. I have yet to find a
suitable substitution.
The quiche can be made
without the crust. Simply treat a


pan with cooking
spray first. If you
prefer it with a
crust, as I do, make
sure most of the
other ingredients
are low in fat or fat-
free. The crust will ."S O
add only a little fat. ,
When cream is
required, substitute
evaporated skim
milk, undiluted or .
Land O' Lakes fat-
free half and half.
You cannot omit
whole eggs entirely. I have
found that anything that has a
custard-like consistency must
have at least one egg yolk to rise
properly.
In looking through my
recipes, I found one using
biscuit mix. I used low-fat
biscuit mix and reduced the oil
slightly. It's both delicious and
easy.
Quiche makes a delicious

The Guru's
Money-saving
Tips
Will those who throw their spices
away after a year or two please
stand up? I knew it; not one of you
did. The cost of spices today is
outrageous, and unless something
in the jar is walking or growing, I
never replace it. The only thing that
can happen is they lose some of
their strength, so use a little more,
except for baking powder and
baking soda.

Don't show your hand when buying a car at end of its lease


T he best thing about
making a decision
about buying your
car at the end of a lease is
that you are holding the
best hand in the card
game between you, the
leasing company and the
dealer. That is because
you know your car better
then they do.
You probably have been


pi 't


driving it for close to
three years, you know
how well you have
maintained it, how worn
the tires are, whether or
not it's been wrecked and
repaired, and how many
dings, dents or uphol-
stery blemishes there are.
You know if it was
garaged and how you
carefully you drove it. You


CHILDREN'S DENTAL HEALTH
Q: Are there any special things I should know about kids' oral health?
A: Until they are old enough to understand the importance of total health and to take*
full responsibility for it, like scheduling their own visits to the dentist, your children
will depend on you to safeguard their oral well being. The American Dental
Association recommended a checkup every six months, beginning with the first
birthday. According to the U.S. Surgeon General's Report on Oral Health, more than
half of all american children ages 6 to 19 have untreated tooth decay. Your Dentist can guide you on the
care of new teeth, or baby teeth. Adolescence, or course, is a challenging period for young people on any
number of fronts. Good nutrition and oral hygiene practiced at home are particularly important during
the teen years. Teens are busy and they snack a lot. Getting them into the routine of healthy snacking-
fruit and nuts, for instance, instead of chips and candy -will be doing them a huge favor. If they wear
braces, urge them to keep the spaces between the teeth and wires clean. And talk with your dentist about
a month guard if your son or daughter is involved in sports.


also know, better than
anybody, how well it
runs. All of these things
determine the value of
your car.
Unless you buy a new
car, you cannot have as
much confidence in any
other used car that you
may buy than your own
used lease car. The only
assurance that you have
when you buy somebody
else's used car is their
word or the dealer's word
about how it was driven
and maintained. That
means, if you did take
very good care of your
leased car, drove it
carefully, kept it in a
garage, waxed and
washed it faithfully, and
maintained it carefully, it
is.worth more to you than
anybody else, because


you are the only one who
knows that. And you can
never be sure about that
for any other used car
you might buy.
Given that you like your
leased car and want to
keep it, the next step is to
determine its wholesale
market value. The leasing
company usually is not in
the business of selling
cars, just leasing them.
Getting rid of off-lease
cars is expensive and
time consuming for
them. You have an advan-
tage here too, and you '
should be able to negoti-
ate a good price.
Remember, you know
your car much better
than they do. They will
usually give you a price
you can buy the car for
without even looking at

Oftentimes, they will
call you first about
buying your lease car
before the lease is up. Be
careful when this hap-

instead of parking in the
closest space?
If you're going to the
mall, can you make
several trips around, just
walking, before you start
to window shop? Little
steps like that get you
moving and get your
mind into an exercise
mindset.
Many people think
they have to invest in
expensive memberships,
clothes or equipment in
order to exercise. Noth-
ing could be further from
the truth. You can get
pedometers for less than
$10.
A pedometer measures
the number of steps you
take. An ideal goal is
10,000 steps a day. Spend
a day and see how far
you actually do go. If it's
'2,000, aim to increase"
That by about 500 the
'first week. Try to add
some each week. A
pedometer is a reminder
'to keep moving; you'll be
surprised at how quickly
-the numbers add up.
I am abig fan of
exercise videos. They can
Sbe used at any time, they
have music to keep you
interested, you can
exercise despite rainy or
'hot weather and there
-are many to choose
from. Collage Videos
Sells many of them, and
!you can even preview
some online at www.col-
Silagevideo.com.
If you're Internet savvy,
',you can find some on
SeBay, and the library
often has some to take
;out and try. I like Leslie
,Sansone, a fitness expert
whose programs are
-built around simple
;walking steps, and
Denise Austin, who has
some beginner tapes, as
-well.
' Choose something you
,can do, because the best
,program in the world
'won't work if it's too
,difficult and you don't
-like it. You can even find
specialized d one, such as
,ickboxing, step aero-
,bics, country dancing,
,alsa and even belly-
`dancing. In your own
.home, who cares how
'silly you think you look.
'Let yourself enjoy the
jnusic and the move-
;ment.
Buddy-up to motivate
-Yourself and a friend. Go
-for a walk with a friend
-to have someone to talk
-to and someone to help
.keep you motivated.
-' Walk with the kids, to
,encourage good habits
for life. If you have a
::dog, make it exercise for
-;both of you. Again, strive
to go a little farther or a
*little faster over time, or
:to add light hand-held
weights to make it more
challenging.
SOf course, before you
begin any exercise
program, you want to
talk to your doctor, to
'make certain that it is
appropriate for you.
' There you have it. Get
;started, keep moving,
making simple changes,
and you'll start to feel
better and look better.

From page B2


www.kbb.com for Kelly
Blue Book is one of the
best sources. "Consumer
Reports" magazine can
also give, you this infor-
mation. The best check
on the wholesale value is
to actually drive your car
to three or four dealer-
ships that are franchised
for your make.
If you drive a Ford, visit
as many Ford dealerships
as you can and tell them
you want to sell your car.
You aren't misleading
them because it's a leased
car. You could exercise
your option to buy it
from the leasing compa-
ny and then resell it to
the dealer, if the dealer's
.offer was higher. If you
live near a CarMax store,


the largest retailer of
used cars anywhere, it
buys a lot of used cars
over the curb and its
prices are usually very
competitive.
Now that you are armed
with the true market
value for your car, you
can negotiate the best
price with the leasing
company.
Even if they won't sell,
you the car for the ACV,
paying as much as $2,000
more than wholesale for a
car you have absolute
confidence in is a good
deal. If you can buy it for
wholesale or below, you
should celebrate.
Another thing to be on
the lookout for with the
leasing company is when


they offer to extend your
lease for the same
monthly payment you are
currently making.
That is not a good deal.
They are doing this
because they will lose
money if they sell this car
at the auction at the
present time. They want
you to keep making
payments on the car so
that their depreciation
rate catches up with the
residual value. The
residual value is the price
they guessed your car
would be worth in three
years. If you had leased
the car for longer at the
onset of your lease, the
payments would be lower
than they are now.
Why should you pay the


leasing company the
same as they charged you,
for a shorter lease?
Note: In the column,
'Should I pay cash or
finance my car,' that
appeared in the Jan. 5
issue, the correct amount
of interest earned on a
three-year, $25,000 CD at,
6 percent is $4,775.40.

Looking forward to spring


One of the greatest
ways to start out the
new year is to start
sprucing up your garden
for the spring season. One
of my favorite plants is a
winter bloomer called the
Panama rose.
Panama rose is a cool
weather-blooming plant
that boasts deep rose-pink
flowers. The plant does
very well in our Florida
winters; however, the plant
must be protected from
freezing temperatures, as
it will not survive a freeze.
This will be especially
true for our friends who
live north bfVero Beach.
The plant has an added
bonus of being an attrac-
tant to butterflies.
After sunset, the Panama
rose will emit a light
fragrance. The flowers are
sometimes used in making
perfume products.
:-: While Panama roses
bloom mainly during the '
6ooler months, you can
keep the plants going year-
round by placing them in a
slightly protected area so
they do not get the full
brunt of the sun all day
long during the summer
months.
It is also a good idea to
trim the plants (no more
than one-third the total
growth) around June to
kep the bush from getting
too leggy. In addition, the
plant should be watered


on a regular basis, but be
careful not to over water or
allow the plant to remain
in standing water.
You may have to shop
around to find these,
especially if you live in the
northern Florida or coastal
areas. I do have a location
that carries them in Stuart.
If you drop me an e-mail, I
will send you the location.
The best way by far to
shop for plant availability
is by phone. The Yellow
Pages is an excellent
source for locating nurs-
eries that are close to your
ZIP code.
OK, if you're really into
fragrance, how about
planting a gardenia bush?
These beautiful plants
come in various varieties,
but by far the best for
outdoor use is the Miami
supreme. They are readily
available at most local
nurseries.
The Miami supreme
boasts large pure white
flowers that emit one of
the most delightful fra-
grances around. It is very
difficult to walk by a
gardenia without smiling
and taking a long whiff of
the sweet-smelling fra-
grance.
These plants will bloom
primarily during the
winter and spring, but you
can sometimes get spo-
radic blooms during other
times of the year also. You


can use these plants in
containers or you can
plant them directly in the
ground. The plant should
have an east or northeast
exposure away from the
direct afternoon sun.
Gardenia plants enjoy
regular, ample watering
but do not like their feet in
standing water. A well-
drained location is best.
They love lots of organic
matter in their soil, so
using manure or other
organic soil dressings is
helpful. They are also an
acid-loving plant, so
feeding with an acid plant
food such as Miracid is


extremely helpful.
Occasionally, you may
have to add some supple-
mental iron if the leaves
begin to turn yellow.
Gardenias can be easily
trimmed to shape, so their
uses are universal. Since
they can grow to six feet
tall and four feet wide,
they make a great hedge
with an added bonus of
fragrance.

", Mother Earth is a
i \ powerful teacher of this
\ law and the giver of
second chances. She says
;, that no matter what


Mother Earth
constantly faces
and moves toward
the future one day at a
time.
She doesn't get anxious,
speed up and try to get to
next week today.
She doesn't come to a
stop and try to go back-
ward and change the past.
The past is like a canceled
check, the present is like
cash and the future is a
promissory note. Which of
these can we spend? The
cash in the present, of
course.
Do you feel stuck,
sidetracked or pushed
backward in life? Do you
feel overworked, under-
loved or not respected?
Are you upset, angry,
hurt, fearful, sad, disap-
pointed or feeling let
down? All these things and
anything else that is
sidetracking you can be
changed, once you see and
understand the grand plan
of life is plenty of the good
stuff.
Living a life of negativity
and focusing on trying to
change what has already
happened is a choice. You
can't change what has
happened in the past.
There is a better way to'
live. There is a better
choice that can bring you
- more love, peace, health,
abundance, faith, truth,
joy, success, creativity and
the good stuff than you
can imagine until you
begin to work with the
supreme law rather than
against it or not at all.
Look out in the sky and
almost everything you see
is like a circle.
Albert Einstein didn't do
well in the lower grades.
His great strength was an
enormous imagination.
He was able to dream,
imagine and visualize the


happened to last year's
crop, whether the flood,
drought, bugs or human
error killed it before
harvest, that the law of the
circle gives second
chances.
The first step of renewal
is to look at the past as our
teacher and learn from it.
Then bless it for what it
taught us, forgive it
instead of judging it,
release it and move on and
grow a new and better life.
We can't change what
has already happened. It's
a great waste of time,
energy, resources or spirit
to dwell on what has or
what might have been.
If you don't like what you
are growing, then change
the seeds you are sowing.
When we get out of our
own way, we stop letting
anger, doubt, fear, hunger,
sadness or indecision
consume us. This lets a
sense of renewed hope
and promise begin to
come into our hearts and
make us feel like new and
better things are possible.
The true spiritual path is
the transformation of an
idea, vision, dream or
inspiration that has
popped into our mind into
a seed of desire planted in
the heart and turned into a
living thing.
Here is how the process
works in nature. First we
prepare the soil by releas-
ing the negativity and,
trash accumulated from
the past. Then we have to
know what we want to
grow. The desired seeds
are planted in fertile soil at
the new moon.
Next, we water the
seeds, cover them up,
surrender them, wait, and
ask for the universe to
.bless them and give them
life. We don't grow the
crop. The universe grows
the crop.

universe in ways that
changed the course of
science and physics for
more than 100 years.
His basic concept was
that the universe was
circular by nature and that
everything was connected.
This is the foundation of
his Theory of Relativity.
The basic concept is that
what we sow we are
supposed to reap back
multiplied to the source. If
it doesn't, it is usually
human error that kept the
principle from working.
Let's play! I'want to
share with you an easy,
fun, eye-opening example
of this supreme law of the
universe. If you have a
pool of water outside on
your patio or in your yard,
drop a rock or some other
solid object in the middle
of the water. .
What happens? The
ripples or waves go out to
the outside and then begin
to come back to the center
until all the energy has
been dissipated.
If you don't have an
outside pool, pour suffi-
cient water in the largest
round pan you have in the
kitchen. Let it grow still.
Then drop a small stone or
marble in the middle and
observe what happens.'
The ripples go out to the
outside and then come
back to the center.
In churches, this princi-
ple is called the Golden
Rule. In physics and
metaphysics it's called
cause-effect or action-
reaction. What we sow we

Do you have patience? If
not, it's because you think
you have to grow the crop.
If you were a farmer you
wouldn't go out everyday
and dig up your seed to
see if it's growing. If you
did, it would kill it. You
haven't learned patience,
surrender and trust in the
higher will, which are
spiritual more than earthly
qualities.
Ego-based people who.
try to control everything
are living on the outside of
their true cause and
purpose.-In the Spirit
Guide columns I call it this
power the universe.
Whatever our relationship
is to it, it is the center of -
our circle of life and is the
seed and source of life.
Going back to the
garden, one day we go out
and find a little green
shoot coming out of the
ground. This a reading of
the sign of a great blessing.
This is the- sign we have
been wanting and waiting
for.
The magnificent bless-
ing of the universe has
now come upon us. An
idea has given birth. A
baby has been born. Help
and rear it as you would a
child. Don't overfeed or
water it. You will kill it
from kindness. Don't
neglect or abandon it as
well. Help it grow bloom,
bear fruit, and bring forth
the harvest, gratitude and
(blessing of its divine
destiny and purpose. This
same blessing is living in
each of our souls right
now, crying to be released.
The most important
thing you will ever do in
life is find, bless and
release the potential seed
of greatness living in your
heart, plant it in your own--
soul and help.it give birth,
grow, blossom and bring
forth the harvest.
Visualizing a better life
that helps you manifest
your true destiny of
people, events and things.
that give you new causes,.
hopes, freedom and
happiness is possible
using the exact same
universal, spiritual and
earthly principles
described above. More in'
the next column about
how to do it. You can do it.
You can have a positive,
blessed, peaceful, healthy,
abundant, fearless, joyous,
creative and love filled life.
No matter what has
happened in the past, we
all have been given second
chances to get it right. You
are an heir to the riches of
the universe. Become
childlike, open your heart,
plant positive seeds and
grow a new and richer life.
You were born to do it.
Then once you see the
blessings of the universe
growing in your heart and
spirit, feel worthy to

Soul to soul

I, too, have grown a lot
this past year The universe
told me to change the
Spirit Guide byline title to
Soul to soul. It's like we are
spiritual family now. You
have given me so much
support with your letters,
e-mail, phone, encourage-
ment and coming to my
different events this past
year that I feel like I know
all of you better and are so
much closer to you.
Heart to heart connec-
tions are important like
earthly people coming
together. But I feel, so
deeply, that we have grown
deeper than the heart and
have found the soul
connection. Let's keep it
growing.
Thankyoufor everything
you have given me this past
year, your love, support,
readings, telling others,
and your challenges about


me, life and the universe. I
am still answering letters,
calls and e-mails from you
who wrote or called me
and still have not heard
back.
My phone is (772) 334-
9487. E-mail
jtuckxyz@aol.com. Please
write or call me again. I
will answer If you ever
have any free time and
would like to help me keep
it going, I need the help.
I am being featured at
the South Florida Fair in
West Palm Beach from
Friday, Jan. 12 to Sunday,
Jan. 28.1 I would love to see
you there. It is on, Southern
Boulevard, five miles west
of Interstate 95. It's a lot of
fun. May life's richest
blessings fall upon you this
year and all your years to
come.
Until next time, never
give up on your dream,
your purpose and your
passion. Trust in the
universe, follow your heart
and soul and keep on
keeping on.

New Permanent Teeth......

A Life Changing Experience


Modem advances in dental tech-
nology and surgical techniques mean
that now, more and more people who
have lost their natural teeth can live
fuller, richer, and happier lives. They
allow the person to go to favorite
restaurants and order what they want
to eat, instead of what they can eat.
Dental implants can restore a person's
ability to eat, smile, kiss and talk with
confidence and comfort.

A dental implant is a substi-
tute tooth root that provides a
stable foundation for replace-
ment teeth. The implant is
anchored into the jawbone
through a process where the
bone and the implant become
integrated, providing the same
stability as natural -teeth. This
means that replacement teeth
can look, feel, and function just
like real teeth!

Since dental implants, like teeth, are
embedded in the jaw, the painful
chewing associated with removable
teeth is eliminated. Unlike traditional
dentures, implants support dentures
so that there is little pressure on the
gums.

While dental implants have been
available for many years, new
advances make them available to
more people. New techniques can
provide support for implants where
the implant could not have been
placed before.

Additionally, dental implants can
be used to solve a variety of dental
problems. For example, implants can
be used to replace a single missing
tooth instead of making a traditional
bridge. They can be placed to support
an entire bridge where the natural
teeth are missing, or they can be used
to give the patient a better fitting den-
ture so they can eliminate the prob-
lems traditionally associated with den-
tures.


Best of all, you'll be able to smile
more naturally and be comfortable in
normal activities such as talking,
laughing smiling and eating.

Explore dental implants as a solu-
tion to your personal dental problems.
Call Dr. Rankin today to schedule your
FREE personal consultation and
examination. Dental implants can
help you smile and eat with confi-
dence again!

South Pacific Wonders: A travelogue


here's something
about seeing the
image of the Sydney
Opera House and expan-
sive Harbour Bridge that
leaves you dreaming of
your vacation to the
South Pacific long after it
ended.
And although you will
enjoy every moment
:exploring cosmopolitan
cities such as Sydney in
Australia and
Christchurch in New
Zealand, it is the natural
landscape of these two
countries that leaves an
indelible impression.
J Nature was inspired
when it created Australia.
.Rain forest, coastline,
outback, mountains and
savannah paint a colorful
palette of magical sights
against an azure sky.
From the moment you
,step off the plane in the
,beautiful Victorian city of
Melbourne, spectacular
scenery is everywhere.
Your first afternoon there,
travel to Phillip Island, a
renowned nature reserve
and home of the world's
largest colony of little
penguins
The little penguin is
protected on Phillip
Island and a staff of
rangers works diligently
to study and protect these
lovable birds. The experi-
ence of watching as
'hundreds of these birds
-waddle out from the sea
,and cross the beach to
their burrows in the
dunes makes you appre-
ciate the balance between
,man and nature.
Adding to the enjoy-
ment of your afternoon
will be a visit to the
Sintiei pir taiii..)n center,
where you will learn
about the life of the little
penguins and their
significance to the area.
The next morning it's
;;off to Cairns, the gateway
'to the Great Barrier Reef.
On the outskirts of Cairns
in Tropical North Queens-
land is the Tjapukai
"(pronounced Jab-a-guy)
Aboriginal Cultural Park
- one of the most award-
ed indigenous attractions
in Australia. Here an
Aboriginal language and
culture that was once in
danger of extinction has
-not only been saved, but
shared with thousands of
visitors from throughout
lhe world.
Tjapukai Aboriginal
Cultural Park is a mystical
experience dedicated to
preserving authentic
Aboriginal culture and
includes five theaters, a
museum, art gallery and a
traditional Aboriginal
*camp, which give visitors
a meaningful glimpse
into a culture dating back
more than 40,000 years.
As you sit in the audi-
ence waiting for the
"show" to begin, the
anticipation in the air is
so thick you can feel it.
Bodies still, the audi-
ence's attention is com-
pletely focused on the
two men at the front of
the theater. Dressed in
traditional Aboriginal
:garb loincloths and
ghostly white body paint
- they crouch over a
small pile of leaves and
. brush, one holding a
horizontal stick, the other
tvwirling his hands up and
down a vertical one. Their
*aim is to create friction,
which leads to heat, and
ultimately the fundamen-
tal element to human
existence fire. You will
be enraptured, imagining
what it must have been
like for their own ances-
tors to know that the


creation of so small yet
,significant a thing as a


ROSE MASCARENHAS
Travel columnist
flame could mean the
difference between life
and death.
For a moment it seems
as though nothing else
will happen, but suddenly
a flash of orange appears.
One of the men bends
low, gently blowing on the
infant flame to coax it to
life. In a whoosh it catch-
es, and he jumps back as
the brush is rapidly
engulfed. He triumphant-
ly holds a flaming branch
aloft to the haunting
accompaniment of a
didgeridoo. As one, the
audience erupts into
cheers and applause as
the Tjapukai man proves
once more the most
basic, ancient element
that sets humans apart
from beasts control
over fire.
. You may learn later that
many members of the
audience were part of a
Collette Vacations tour
that included Tropical
North. Queensland and
the visit to Tjapukai
Aboriginal Cultural Park.
Here they had the oppor-
tunity to meet members
of the Tjapukai people,
learn about their history
and culture, hear their
music and Dreamtime
stories.
If you're game, you can
also try your hand at
playing a didgeridoo or
throwing a boomerang,
one Collette traveler
related to me.
Aboriginal culture is
just one facet of a visit to
Cairns in Tropical North
Queensland. The region's
most famous attraction is
undoubtedly the Great
Barrier Reef one of the
world's greatest natural
wonders and the largest
single living organism on
the planet.
The Great Barrier Reef '
stretches down the
Queensland coast for
more than 1,200 miles


and covers an area of
more than 155,000 square
miles. You can visit some
- or all of these reef
formations each one
unique on a Great
Barrier Reef day trip.
One of the rare natural
wonders in this area is
Green Island, a short
journey by fast catamaran
off the Cairns coast.
Green Island is a 6,000-
year-old coral cay per-
fectly located for explor-
ing the reef-- from the
water or from the comfort
of a glass-bottom boat.
But there's more to this
island than the reef alone.'
Over centuries, a cool
rain forest has developed,
along with white coral
sand beaches yours to
explore with a Colette
Vacations day trip.


The city of Cairns is a
vibrant coastal town with
fabulous shopping and
dining ranging from
traditional "Aussie bush
tucker" to alfresco cafes
and five-star restaurants.
The Queensland Out-
back, with its miles of
open spaces, amazing
land formations and
mobs of free-roaming
kangaroos, is only a
couple of hours drive
inland. However, you may
chose, instead, to set off
for Sydney where you can
spend two fabulous
. nights. The tour here may
include highlights such as
Kings Cross, the Harbour
Bridge, Chinatown, the
Rocks, Circular Quay, the
Potanic Gardens and the

hello New Zealand."
The moment you arrive
in Queenstown, this
charming South Island
town will captured your
heart. The first evening
there, take a gondola ride
to dinner at the Skyline
Restaurant, which over-
looks Queenstown, Lake
Wakatipu and the moun-
tains.
Although the scenic
beauty of such sights as
the Hollyford Valley and
Milford Sound are not to
be missed, one of the best
things about traveling is
meeting people along the
way, especially the locals.
On this adventure
Down Under, you might
have the privilege of
dining with a local family
"Kiwis," as they're called.
They may take you into
their home, where you
will enjoyed a traditional,
home-cooked meal and
absorbed some kiwi
culture. These are the
experiences you remem-
ber long after your return
trip home.
New Zealand's most
famous national park, Mt.
Cook, is where you can
spend a leisurely after-
noon after leaving Queen-
stown. This is truly one of
the most impressive
mountains in the world.
You can choose to view
the massive glaciers and
extensive snow-covered
mountain-top terrain on
an optional glacier flight
tour, or just enjoy the
park during a simple
nature walk.
Your tour of the South
Pacific begins to wind to
its end in the historic city
of Christchurch. Here you
can participate in a short
sightseeing tour of "the
most English city outside
of England" highlighting
magnificent gardens, the
Neo-Gothic Cathedral
and the downtown park
district.
One of your fondest
memories in this area of
New Zealand will be'a
visit to a Canterbury
farmyard to take part in a
sheep shearing demon-
stration and see how a
New Zealand family farm
works.
Throughout your 15
days in Australia and New
Zealand, you are sure to
find a world of relaxation,
beauty, adventure and
fun all waiting to be
discovered and appreciat-
ed. I can't wait to go!

Jet's Pizza: corporate tag, 'mom-and-pop'feel


BY MATTHEW DEWHURST
Hometown News Dining Crew

Never having done a din-
ing review before, I was a lit-
tle timid to offer my services
for this particular assign-
ment.
However, when my editor
told me that it was for Jet's
Pizza in Stuart, I jumped at
the chance. .If I know any-
thing, it's pizza. I worked at
pizza franchise for four and
half years in high school and
college, so I feel like I know
what a pizza operation
should look and feel like. I
know it wasn't Mario's Pizze-
ria in the Brooklyn, but hey, I
can still make a mean pizza
pie.
I hired our chief photogra-
pher, Mitch Kloorfain, to be
my wingman for the after-
noon. As we entered the
Winn-Dixie plaza parking lot
off of U.S. 1, we saw Jet's
Pizza nestled adjacent to
Atlanta Bread Company,
and right next to Hollywood
Video.
I just had a good feeling
about the place, walking up
to the doors. From the look
of Jet's, it doesn't send out a
corporate message that
some other pizza place
might. You feel like you are at
a real down-home pizzeria.
The store has one long nar-
row aisle for customers to
order and then watch
behind glass as the Jet's Pizza
crew makes their food right
in front of them. There are a
few two-person tables for
customers to enjoy their
food, as well.
But despite the humble


surroundings, Jet's is any-
thing but.
"It's a mom-and-pop
overview with a corporate
tag on it," said store manag-
er Eric Cole.
The franchise originated
in Michigan and has slowly
worked itself south. Three
years ago, Mr. Cole opened
his door in Stuart, and loves
the location. The store deliv-
ers to a four-mile radius,
stopping at the Roosevelt
Bridge, and extending
through much of Stuart and
Palm City. Anyone can pick
up an order.
When we went to order, I
had to ask, "What's the best
side item you have?"
It was a given that we were
going to have pizza, but I
wanted to see what else the
place had to offer. Mr. Cole
seriously thought over his
answer before saying that he
really thought it was all
good, and eventually told us
we had to try the Jet's Bread.
I was glad he did, because
the Jet's Bread is not your
normal cheesy bread. Made
out of homemade dough -
all the dough is made at the
store the staff at Jet's slaps
out a medium-size pizza
and covers it with three dif-
ferent cheeses and a garlic
butter sauce. You can also
get it with pepperoni if you
want.
Mitch and I stood back
and watched as Mr. Cole and
his staff prepared our food
fresh in front of our eyes a
large Super Special square
deep-dish pie. Unlike other
pizza restaurants, Jets does-
n't charge extra for deep


dish, and they cook it in a
square pan, making your
experience even more
unique.
Like all the pizza made' at
Jet's, the Super Special is
topped with Grande cheese
and Portobello pizza sauce
to start, before being loaded
with pepperoni, ham,
mushrooms, green peppers
and onions. It was absolute-
ly delicious, and reasonably
priced. Jet's pizzas start off at
$6.59 for a small, and range
To $12.09 for an extra large. Ak
large pizza is $9.49. Toppings
differ for each size pizza but
roughly cost about $1 extra
per topping. You can also
buy by the slice.
The pie was complement-
ed beautifully by our Jet's
Bread and hot wings. Both
the wings and Jet's. Bread
cost $5.99 a piece, and are
worth every penny of it. For
the same price you can also
get chicken tenders, or a Jet
Boat, which is similar to a
calzone, or a small side salad
that could really serve as its
own meal.


To go along with the
mom-and-pop theme, the
dough is not the only thing
prepared in the store. The
house marinara sauce,
Ranch and Italian dressings
are also made on the prem-
ises.
Jet's also offers subs, and
has a number of value meals
set up perfect for an after-
noon lunch crowd, the most
popular being the two slices
and a soda, for $3.49.
When Mitch and I couldn't
eat anymore, and trust me.
we wanted to, lMr. Cole
packed up our leftovers for
us and we headed out
stuffed, but extremely happy
with our experience at Jet's
Pizza. These guys know how
to make a good pie, and we
will definitely be back soon.
Jet's Pizza is located at
'1986 S. Federal Highway

p.m. Monday through

Boss Groove rebuilds, returns


BY SHELLEY KOPPELL
Entertainment writer


Most of the members
of Boss Groove have been
in bands or the theater
for most of their lives.
The current band came
together about three
years ago. After the tragic
deaths of band member
Richie Ciani and his wife,
Grace, the band did not
play for a while. Today,
the band is again a
fixture on the local scene,
appearing at festivals
and clubs and restau- .
rants in the area.
"I wasn't in the band
then but I knew Richie
and Grace," lead guitarist
Wade Jackson said. "The
band decided to have a
benefit for their two
daughters and I was
asked to step in. We felt it
was the right thing to do;
to keep it going."
The seven-piece band
is larger than many other
local groups and that


gives the musicians
opportunity for variety.,
"We have three horn
players, all multi-instru-
mentalists, who play the
trombone, sax and
trumpet, as well as
percussion and key-
board. No one else has a
horn section. That's our
niche. One of our goals
is to do songs other
bands couldn't do
because of the lack of
instruments. We wanted
to do things a little bit
different."
The band's repertoire is
varied, ranging from
Steely Dan, Chicago and
the Red Hot Chili Pep-
pers, to the alternative
rock band Reel Big Fish.
They play hits from the
70s, 80s and 90s, as well
as current hits.
"Our goal is to. enter-
tain people and our-
selves," Mr. Jackson said.
"We want to make them
feel good. Sometimes, it's
listening, and some-


times, ft's dancing. We 93 H 1r MN Dri e F iwc F
can be a dance band one 936 Harbortown Drive, Ft Pierce, FL

DIRECTOR: TONY DELLA ROCCA
The late Clemma, devoted housekeeper for Burt Hines and his
daughter, Josie, guides this memory play by recalling the events of
a summer in the 1950s, when nine people converged on
Burt's tranquil country home. In a not-so-tranquil way, Clemma
remembers sorting out their tangled lives and loves.
"Funny and heartfelt, "Proposals" entertains with equal amounts of
laughter and tears!"

Finding the right recipe for success


BY MATTHEW DEWHURST ers, because he has a soc-


Sports writer

Calvin Lewis sits in his
office at St. Lucie West
Centennial High School
with his feet up on his
desk. The head of the culi-
nary arts department
wears a blue soccer jersey
with a bright white num-
ber eight on the chest and
stripes down the arms as
he watches the clock. It is
the day before winter
break and like many
teachers, Lewis is just
waiting for that final bell.
But his .break won't be
the same as other teach-


cer team to coach.
"I plan on sleeping for
two days," Lewis joked at
the time. "But then, it's
back to work."
Lewis has worked hard
since coming to the school
in 2004 to take over the
culinary arts department
and the schools second-
rate boys soccer program.
In Centennials' first seven
years of existence, the
Eagles finished over .500
and the team had prob-
lems drawing players.
Three years later, Centen-
nial is no longer the door-
mat of the Treasure Coast.


Last year the team fin-
ished 12-5, the first wining
record in school history,
and this year, the team
started out with a 9-1-1
record, including an eight-
game winning streak. The
Eagles entered the New
Year 10-2-1.
"The biggest thing was
convincing the kids that
they were the same age
and size as the other kids,"
said Lewis. "It's all mental.
We had to change the atti,
tude."
Having a winning pro-
gram is something the
coach is used to. He has
two district titles from his


days at Jupiter High
School and a conference
championship when he
coached at Fort Pierce
Central.
But the challenge of tak-
ing a team from rags to
riches enticed Lewis, and
he sees the beginnings of a
powerhouse at Centenni-
al. Many people in the
area couldn't say that two
years ago, but Lewis knew
he had talent from the first
day he set foot on the
practice field.
"I couldn't figure out
why they weren't winning.

School was the biggest
local winner, placing six
wrestlers in the top six of
their respective weight
classes. The Falcons (172
points) also took home a
second-place finish
behind Palm Bay High
School (196.5).
Anthony Hess won the
145-pound title for the
Falcons, while teammate
Jesse Brantman finished
second in the 112-pound
weight class.
Jensen Beach head
coach Tom McMath was
happy with his team's
overall finish, but thought
that the tournament did
more for his team by
giving his athletes experi-
ence.
"It gave a lot of the kids
matches and right now
that's what they need,"
McMath said.
Fort Pierce Central also
sent two wrestlers to the
finals, while placing three
more in the top six.;
The Cobras were'without
three varsity wrestlers for


the tournament. Sopho-
more Joesph Casiano and
seniors Gary Desrouilleres
and David Blanco were
out for unspecified
reasons. The Cobras
finished 11th overall with
110.5 points.
Head coach Peter
Crespo, although happy
with the results of Guerson
Jacques and George
McPherson, who both
finished second in the
respective weight classes,
expects more from his
team, in future meets.
Centrals duel meet record
is 10-4 right now, and to.
remain on top of the pack,
Crespo and company plan
on getting back to basics
after the winter break lull.
"We were missing three
kids who should have
been in finals. We still
haven't gotten our lineup,
said Crespo. "We're young,
so I expected not to do
very well. The

One Invitational wrestling
tournament) is always
hard coming off of Christ-
mas break. But we wres-
tled hard."
Port St. Lucie head coach
Jim Dailey had a similar
reaction to the tourna-
ments outcome. Even
though his team place no
finalists, the way they
wrestled against tougher
and mote experienced
competition lead him to
believe that they are ready
to make a run in th6
seasons second half.
"I think it actually is a
wake up call for us, to get
more focused in the
practice room," Dailey
said. "We set some goals
Saturday night after the
tournament. Our goal is to
go undefeated in (the rest
of our) duel meets. Eight
more."

New challenger divi-
sion for Little League
set to take off

The Treasure Coast will have a
challenger division in the Spring
2007 little league season. Spear-
headed by Martin County North
Little League, and working in con-
junction with Little League District
17, the surrounding area little
leagues, Advocates for the Rights
of the Challenged and the FAU

The challenger division of Little
League Baseball is a program for

the Little League challenger divi-

ronment and participation in Little

game of baseball. The rules are
modified to include that no score
is kept, each player bats every
inning, and everyone plays the
entire game.
The challenger division will also
include a "buddy" system, in
which youth volunteers assist
players throughout the season to
ensure their safety and success.
Little League registrations will be
held in December and January,
and the spring season will begin
in March and continue through
May. All games will be held at
Sailfish Park in Stuart on Satur-
day afternoons, and there is no
fee to participate in the chal-
lenger division. Each player will
be provided with a complete uni-
form and all equipment.

I thought 'Something's
not right here,'" Lewis
said.
Just like in the kitchen,
he had to find the right
ingredients to make a
good product. The main
problem was unity and
organization. One of the
first things Lewis did
when he took over the job
was establish his authori-
ty.
He was in charge, and
what he said was law. That
philosophy sometimes
rubbed his players the
wrong way, but he knew
that it was necessary for
success in the long run.
"I'll lose every game
before I let a player run
the team," said Lewis.
"When we lose a game,. I
take the blame. When we
win, I take the credit."
It took a few weeks for
the kids to get the mes-
sage, but it is clear they,
did and it has paid off.
Senior captain Sean
Humann is the only play-
er left from the days when
Centennial was just
another win on visiting
teams schedules. He
remembers the team not
having any identity on
campus or much passion
on the field. The biggest
difference now is that the
team has a newfound
confidence to win, and
win consistently.
"My freshman year the
program was real rough.
Lewis turned that
around." Humann said.
"We brought the team
together. We're more
organized now. We have a
will to win."
Lewis is dedicated to
building a solid program
at Centennial, and not
just a one-hit wonder. But

he knows that even Rome
wasn't built in a day. He
preaches a "clean soccer,
clean life" approach to the
game and as more of his
players buy into his phi-
losophy, the better the
team seems to get.
On Jan. 3 the team
played Sebastian River
High School in their first
game of 2007. Thle Eagles
looked like they had the
ability to hang with the
Sharks,, but couldn't capi-
talize on scoring opportu-
nities. Centennial fell to
Sebastian River (11-3-1),
3-0, for only its third loss
of the season. But Lewis
didn't blow up at his play-
ers after the game, saying
that it was just another
learning experience for
his team on how to build a
winning tradition.
"We got our butts
whooped and they knew
that," said Lewis. "That
was the old Centennial
coming out. Now they
know they have to work
hard during the break if
they want to beat teams
like (Sebastian River)."
When your third loss of
the season comes in Janu-
ary, it is safe to say your
team is pretty good. But
it's even more rewarding
to know that you can
build off a loss the same
way you build off a win. In
Lewis' eyes, that's precise-
ly what you have to do to
build a winning tradition.
"Calvin's not interested
in doing this for one, year.
He's trying to build a pro-
grarm," said Centennial
athletic director John
Messina. "I think we're
going to have a very good
soccer program for a very
long time."

Practice may make perfect during busy season


This is not only the
best time of year for
golf, but the worst as
well.
The weather is perfect
right now for golf: Not too
hot; not too cold; just right.
In fact, I believe that I saw
the Three Bears over on the
12th fairway.
The problem this time of
year is everyone wants to
play golf, so the courses are
crowded and the econom-
ics of supply and demand
are at their greatest.
What to do? Well, there is
an old saying that you
should "Practice to play,
not play to practice." Here
is your chance to get that
game in shape so that
when the rates do drop
and the tee sheets aren't as
full, you will shock your
friends with just how good
your game has become
during the winter.
We are fortunate enough
to live in an area where
there are many dedicated
ranges or even courses
with practice areas that
allow you to get in some
swings. All you need is
about an hour to hit a
bucket of balls. I can
usually do this during my
lunch hour. I pack a
canned drink, a sandwich
and a piece of fruit to eat
on the way or at the course.
OK, sometimes it's a
brownie instead of a
banana, but I have needs.
With so many courses,
finding one within a few
minutes drive from my
home or office isn't diffi-
cult. The PGA Learning
Center in Port St. Lucie is a
great place to hone your
game. Monterey Point in
Stuart is near downtown
and features a mini-golf
course to keep the kids
.,busy while you work on the
important stuff. I spend
two or more days each
.week at Hammock Creek in
,Palm City. The course is
right down the street from


my office and sponsors my
golf radio show, so they
treat me just like family. I'll
hit balls one day, chip
another, and work on
smoothing out my putting
stroke another.
If you'd rather stay home,
try your garage or back-
yard. Set up a net or even
an old mattress to hit balls
into. I even know someone
who hung an old set of
drapes from the ceiling in
his garage. Practicing your
putting is even easier. You
can putt nearly anywhere
and get in some television
time while working on that
stroke.
If you prefer a real range,
a bucket of balls should
cost you less than $10.
That's nothing compared
to the price of an actual
round of golf at this time of
the year.
Most dedicated ranges
have lighting so you can
get in your practice after
dinner, if you prefer. I take
the bucket of balls to the
chipping and bunker area
and work on those shots.
Then I pick them up and
hit full shots before head-
ing back to my real job.
If money is a problem,
there is no cost to use a
putting green at just about
any public club or facility.
In addition, practicing
your putting is the fastest
way to improve your scores
on the course. If you take
two putts per green, .that's
36 shots on the greens
alone. If you can gain some
confidence with your
putter and sink a few more
of those 5-footers and
avoid three-putting,
imagine how quickly your
scores will drop.
The same goes for
chipping. Most amateurs
miss three-out-of-every-
four greens during a
round.'Keeping'the feel
and touch that you devel"'
op around the green sharp
is one key to scoring well.


Were you... mis-represented, and/or experienced
unfulfilled promises at their sites, the Cascades or
the Traditions in Port St. Lucie. If yes join us to seek
justice and financial retribution. New home buyers, a
do you really want to deal with a builder like this?

JAMES STAMMER
Golf columnist
How often have you spent
the entire winter without
picking up a club, and find
that the deft scoring touch
you had perfected is
absent from your game for
about the first half-dozen
rounds of the season?
If money is not a big
problem, but time is,
consider getting lessons.
There is a multitude of
teaching professionals
here on Florida's east coast.
Some teach one-on-one,
which can be quite expen-
sive, while others teach in a
less expensive group
setting. You and your
friends could approach a
professional about a group
lesson and save a few


dollars. Getting lessons in
this way relieves you of the
worry of embarrassing
yourself in front of
strangers and your entire
foursome stands to gain
some improvement.
All golfers desire to
become better at this
game. What many lack is a
realistic expectation of
what they can get from
lessons. Thanks to televi-
sion, magazines and
books, many golfers feel
that they must be able to
hit a golf ball like Tiger
Woods in order to improve
their game. As a result that
is what they expect their
pro to teach them.
A 60-year-old's body
simply cannot perform
like that of a 20-year-old's.
You should learn what will
work best for your body
and factor in the amount
of time and effort you plan
to put into getting there.
Should you decide on a
lesson and a teaching pro,
make sure that he or she
understands what you
want to accomplish and
have realistic expecta-
tions. It's very important
that you are both on the
same page.
Whatever your plan is to


cope with the winter,
remember to enjoy it.
Besides, with enough
winter practice, you could
shock all of your couch-
bound partners once your
season begins.
