looks forward to
her CD release in
March
BY ROBIN RINKE
Staff writer
FORT PIERCE She's
only 12 years old, but
already has a portfolio of
a
seasoned artist.
She goes by Jernie, and
is the Fort Pierce country
singing sensation who's
crooned all over the state
and nation since she was
knee high.
'I knew she had some-
thing special when she
came home from pre-
school and belted out the'
song '"Tomorrow" from,
the musical Annie," said
Jernie Talles's mom, Jen-
nifer Talles.
"I called my dad and
said, 'Listen to this,' she


said.
The rest is history.
Jernie has already expe-
rienced multiple televi-
sion appearances, con-
tests, sharing the stage
with big name singing
stars and singing the
National Anthem at sev-
eral National Football
League and National
Baseball League games.


Document redaction

'a monumental task'


BY MATT DONEGAN
Staffwriter
The age of identity
theft has caused a
dilemma in the St. Lucie
County Clerk of the
Court office.
The problem is that
countless records acces-
sible to the public con-
tain sensitive informa-
tion, including social
security, credit card and
bank account numbers,
dating back to the
1930s.
For the past several
years, the state legisla-
ture has discussed ways


of resolving this dis-
crepancy, including one
proposal to mandate
the state's clerks of the
court to delete sensitive
information from any
records the public can
view.
While St. Lucie County
Clerk of the Circuit
Court Ed Fry said he
certainly doesn't want
people using the
records for purposes
other than their intent,
he pointed out that no
easy solution exists to
prevent it.

"Being a recording artist
has been, fun, exciting
and kind of crazy so far,"
Jernie said.
In 2006, she landed a
recording deal with Mir-
rome Records, and
recently finished record-
ing the debut CD in
Nashville under the direc-
tion of Grammy Award
winning producer Ron


Jernie, the 12-year-old
country music artist from
Fort Pierce, will have
national radio play in

'A garden for

Heathcote hopes to create tourist
destination with major expansion


BY MATT DONEGAN
Staffwriter
Heathcote Botanical
Gardens in Fort Pierce is
poised to increase its size
dramatically in the
spring, and has much
larger plans to ultimately
become an 800-plus
acre environmental
park.
The expansion was dis-
cussed last week as part
of an interlocal agree-
ment between St. Lucie


County and the city of
Fort Pierce.
On April 30, the city is
slated to deed 67 acres of
land to the county for
$3.9 million, money
which comes from a
Florida Communities
Trust grant.
The land includes a lit-
tle-known 16-acre, 28-
foot deep lake created by
a former coastal sand
mining operation

Heathcote
From page Al
behind the Fort Pierce
Public Works complex on
Savannah Road. As part of
phase one of Heathcote's
master plan for the expan-
sion, which envisions cap-
ital improvements totaling
more than $22 million in
three phases spanning 15
years or more, a lake house
would be built at the site
and be rented out for
meetings and conferences.
Phase one is expected to
take at least five years.
Eventually, bike paths
and walking trails would
be added around the lake,
and an outdoor amphithe-
ater and pier could also be
included there, said
Heathcote board of
trustees president Cris
Adams. There's even pre-
liminary talks of moving
the St. Lucie County His-
torical Museum to the site.
In phase three of the
plan, which is still many
years away, Heathcote
hopes to have the public
works buildings, humane


society and solid waste
facilities relocated off the
site. That's where things
get iffy for Fort Pierce offi-


cials, who estimate a $50
million cost to relocate the
buildings.
"It's too costly," said Fort
Pierce City Manager Den-
nis Beach, adding that the
city wants to redefine the
project to leave out reloca-
tion of the public works
complex.
But Ms. Adams said she
hopes the city will see the
long-term benefit of the
entire proposal.
"It's a cultural amenity
our community desper-
ately needs," she said.
"The city has made great
strides with the Sunrise
Theatre and reinvented
itself with downtown Fort
Pierce. This can only
enhance it."

expand by 67 acres at.
the end of April. The
new land annexed,

include a 16-acre lake.
Eventually, Heathcote

preserve, creating an

mental park.

Right now, Ms. Adams
said the garden's intimate
3.5 acres of native and
exotic flora is a tourist
attraction. She said she
wants to see it become a
tourist destination.
Under the master plan;
Heathcote would tie into
the Savannas wetland pre-
serve and connect Fort
Pierce with Jensen Beach.
Federal funding for the
project will not come this
year. During a Jan. 11
workshop, county com-
missioners opted to pull a
$1 million federal funding
request for the project off
its agenda. County Com-
missioner Doug Coward:
said the plan still needs "a
lot of refinement."

Waste
From page Al
in the trash," said Carmen
Capezzuto, program coor-
dinator with the Port St.
Lucie Public Works
Department. "These items
are hazardous to the envi-
ronment and need to be
disposed of properly."
Items such as car fluids,
batteries, herbicides and
other chemicals qualify for
disposal during the special
collection day, scheduled
from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Satur-
day, Jan. 27.
Once the hazardous
materials are collected that
day, an environmental
company takes it to the
Solid Waste Department
for St. Lucie County, locat-
ed in Fort Pierce. From
there, the materials are
prepared to be re-used.
.


"We offer recycling to
everybody, because every-
body has to do their part,"
said Justin Gattuso, regula-
tory technician with the
Solid Waste Department of
St. Licie County. "If we
don't give people a solu-
tion, they will throw it out
with the garbage or it will
go down the drain."
Many of the materials
collected can be danger-
ous to not only the envi-
ronment, but to also peo-
ple. Certain household
cleaners, such as bleach
and ammonia can pro-
duce a lethal gas when
mixed, Mr. Gattuso said.
"You've got this poor guy
on a (garbage) truck when
something mixes and
starts to emit a deadly
1UP .


gas," he said. "We also
don't want fires or spills.
And we definitely don't
want anything poured
down the drain or in a
canal."
There are some items not
accepted, such as biohaz-
ard or medical waste,
ammunition, explosives
and water-based paints.
Residents can bring their
hazardous materials
throughout the year to the
landfill on Glades Cut-Off
Road in Fort Pierce. Mr.
Capezzuto with the Public
Works Department, said
the city offers a collection
service twice a year to
encourage residents to get
rid of their household haz-
ards properly.
"We offer this to resi-


dents because the city
cares about the environ-
ment and we don't want
these materials getting
into the drainage system
and the river," Mr. Capez-
zuto said. "We give resi-
dents an opportunity to
dispense of the materials
without going to the land-
fill."
The city is planning to
hold another hazardous
material collection day
July 14.
The hazardous waste col-
lection day is scheduledfor
8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday,
Jan, 27, at the Public Works
Department, located at 450
S. W Thornhill Drive.
For more information,

REVIEW

Lab school receives funding
The St. Lucie County School Board approved last
week to borrow as much as $22 million to construct
a laboratory school in Tradition.
An additional $15 million of state funds have been
pledged for the project.
Core Communities, developer of Tradition, donat-
.ed the 33-acres of land for the school site.
The lab school in Tradition is planned to be a char-
ter school, overseen by the school board and Florida
Atlantic University, will research and test new edu-
cational philosophies.
The student population must reflect the demo-
graphics of the community, and the school will be
open to any student in St. Lucie County.
Any money the school board borrows for the lab
school will be repaid with state money through FAU.
A groundbreaking is expected next month,.with a
planned opening in August 2008. The school will
have an enrollment of 1,600 kindergarten through
8th grade students.

Robbery suspect arrested
Port St. Lucie Police arrested and charged a Riviera
Beach man for several robberies in St. Lucie and
Martin counties.
D'Andre Jerrod Jones, aka Meathead, 18, with an
unknown address in Riviera Beach, was arrested Jan.
14 and charged with attempted armed robbery with
a firearm and destruction of evidence for discarding
a firearm.
Mr. Jones was arrested after a Port St. Lucie Police
officer conducted a traffic stop for a loud car stereo.
According to police, Mr. Jones told the officer he did
not have a license.
When the officer began to investigate further, he
found a ski mask and gloves in the car. Mr. Jones was
then taken to the Port St. Lucie Police Department
for further questioning.
At the station, Mr. Jones confessed to the armed
robbery of a man at an ATM in Jensen Beach, the
armed robbery at a Port St. Lucie nightclub and the
attempted robbery at a grocery store in Port St.
Lucie.
Mr. Jones faces additional charges from the St.
Lucie County and Martin County sheriff's offices.

National Braille Month

tant, Ron Andrini, assistant and Sindy Greenwell, program coordinator. Receptionist
Katherine Kennedy is seated in front of a magnified screen for computer users with visu-

Staff writer
STUART One of only
five organizations in the
nation certified to repro-
duce Braille material exists
in Stuart.
Braille International car-
ries out the legacy of Louis
Braille, who invented the
system of raised dots that
made it possible for people
who are blind to read and
write for themselves.
To honor the inventor's
birthday, January was
named National Braille
Literacy Month.
Braille International isn't
the only Martin County
nonprofit organization
that serves the visually
impaired. The 20/200 Fel-
lowship is an independent
resource center for the
blind and visually
impaired that serves five
counties.


Certified by the Library
of Congress, Braille Inter-
national produces an aver-
age of 2.6 million pages of
Braille per month.
"We take publications
and reproduce it into
Braille. It is an expensive
process because of the
time involved. Production
is a step-by-step process
'for each and every page,"
said Jamie Redditt, presi-
dent of Braille Internation-
al.
Linda Wiggins, director
of administration of Braille
International, said, "The
government calls us for
contract work for the
Internal Revenue Service,
the Department of Educa-
tion and the Government
Printing Office. Our organ-
ization ranks in the top
three of the five Braille
Houses in the nation.
"Contracts with the
Library of Congress, keep


us busy with printing
monthly magazines such
as Martha Stewart Liv-
ing, Ladies Home Journal,
ESPN, three health letters,
Boy's Life, and several chil-
dren's magazines. This
year we also have 160 book
titles to print for them,"
she said.
Many agencies such as
The National Federation of
the Blind and Parents of
Blind Children come to
Braille International for
Braille printing.
Religious organizations
such as the Billy Graham
Evangelical Association
and Braille Bibles Interna-
tional also use the printing
services. Private business-
es such as Disney, Sea
World and many chain
restaurants have menus,
guidebooks and informa-
tion printed in Braille for

Welcome t


Is IT MINE ?
I buy lots of jewelry from
the public. To do so I must
fill out a police report when
purchasing jewelry from
the public. We must ask
whose ring (or whatever
they are selling) it is. We do
this to determine whether it
is their property to sell or if
they have authorization to
sell it. And I frequently
hear something that dis-
turbs me. One of them is
from ladies that have been
engaged but have since
broken off the engage-
ment. They have given the
engagement ring back. The
second thing I hear is that
the man brings the ring in
to sell and he tells me he
"took" it back.
Well here's the real deal.
If you receive an engage-
ment ring, it's yours, You
can wear it, sell it, or do
anything you want with it.
It's yours. If he "takes" it
back without your authori-
zation, it is still yours and
you can take whatever
legal means you like to get
it back. Therefore if he tries
to sell it to me or any other
jeweler it is not his to sell.
This is straight from the
detective that is our repre-
sentative from the sheriff's
office.

NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT
Are you waiting for "just the right time" to get into real estate market? Current signs
are pointing to a window of opportunity right now.
Presently we have a larger inventory of homes for sale giving buyers a greater
:capacity to choose and interest rates are still historically low. The average 30-year fixed
rate mortgage rate remains near 40 year lows and rates have dropped for 15-year fixed
mortgages, five-yearTreasury -indexed hybrid adjustable-rate loans the one year
adjustable rate mortgages (ARM ). With rising interest rates still being predicted, can you
afford not to lock in now? If interest rates rise one percentage point it could boost
currently available homes out of \-our financial reach.
Real estate still remains one of the best preforming and consistent long-term
investments. The national median home price has increased 88%over the last ten years.
The average home purchased five years ago has appreciated 49% and even with the 2.2%
decline in the median home price, this still equates to more than -15% on your ivest-
ment.
The many housing choices available and low interest rates make ita good to be the
buyer again! this window of opportunity could disappear when prices ad interest rates
rise once more.
If you would like to discuss whattype of mortgage loan will work best for you, call

FPL will continue to manage
the storage of used fuel safely

Florida Power & Light Company is committed to shar-
ing information to our neighbors regarding the opera-
tions of the St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant, and a recent
rant in the Hometown, News questioned the safety our
plans to provide additional storage for the plant's used
fuel. We appreciate this opportunity to provide informa-
tion on this topic.

Storage needs
Nuclear power plants like St. Lucie generate electricity
by using uranium, a natural ore, as fuel. Periodically, the
uranium fuel must be replaced and the used fuel stored
on site. This is currently accomplished by placing the
used fuel in stainless steel-lined concrete pools of water
in a building adjacent to the nuclear reactors. This is
known as "wet storage."
The original plan for all U.S. nuclear power plants was
for the federal government to reprocess the used urani-
um fuel so it could be recycled and used again. U.S.
plants designed the size and capacities of their storage
pools based on that plan.
In the mid-70s, the federal government decided not to
pursue reprocessing. Instead, the used fuel would be
taken from plant sites, including St. Lucie's, and placed in
a permanent repository for disposal. This federally oper-
ated repository was to have opened in 1998, but the
licensing of the disposal site is behind schedule. As a
result, nuclearlpower plants have to store all their used
fuel temporarily at the plant sites until the.federal facility
is operational.

Dry storage of used fuel
We will continue to manage the storage of used fuel
safely and reliably as we have for more than 30 years by
supplementing the current wet storage of fuel with dry
storage.
Dry storage is a proven technology that is safe, secure
and environmentally sound. Half of the nation's nuclear
power plant sites currently have some form of onsite dry
storage. The design and operation of dry storage systems
are licensed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
The used fuel will be sealed in thick metal canisters
and stored within larger concrete modules, providing a
barrier of steel and concrete that measures approximate-
ly two to four feet thick. The used fuel to be stored there
cannot explode, leak or burn; and the facility will be safe-


ly protected with extensive security measures.
The modules are designed to provide radiation shield-
ing and protect the canister from natural disasters such
as hurricanes or fires, and from man-made sources, such
as jet aircraft.

Need for nuclear power, other energy sources
Not. only do nuclear power plants create very little
waste, but these plants also help keep our air clean, too.
Millions of tons of greenhouse gas emissions are avoid-
ed each year with the operation of the 103 nuclear power
plants in the U.S., which provide 20 percent of the elec-
tricity we consume. Nuclear power plants may also help
create a cleaner energy future in another way; by produc-
ing hydrogen to power fuel cells.
Florida's energy needs continue to grow, and we
believe nuclear power must remain a viable energy
source now and in the future, but it can't do the job alone.
That's why FPL is continuing other efforts to diversify the
company's electric generation resources by actively pur-
suing the development of advanced coal technology,
supporting the development of renewable technologies,
including wind, solar, ocean currents and biofuels, and
continuing to promote our industry-leading energy con-
servation programs.
Your readers might be interested to know that FPL
Energy, our sister company, is the nation's leading owner
and operator of wind generation and the leader in solar
power!
Additional information on dry storage and other topics
is available at, www.fpl.com. Click on "Nuclear Power
Serves You."
We also encourage anyone who has an interest in our
operations to visit the plant's visitor center, the Energy
Encounter, (772) 468-4111 or (877) 375-4386).

Port St. Lucie City Council's
plan to calm traffic

The paper tells us about plans for traffic calming circles
to be built into the Becker Road complex. Circles and
four-way stops are ideal for moving traffic when the flow
is minimal.
There should be a deeper study into the area's traffic


pattern, because it will become gridlocked by the time
traffic-calming circles are constructed.
As the development continues in that area, the need to
enhance traffic flow will require the elimination of circles
and installation of modern traffic signals.
In all major metropolitan traffic flows, circles have
been eliminated, because they impede, rather than aid
the movement of heavy amounts of traffic.
Why spend the extra funds to build circles, when they
will have to be either supplemented or eliminated in
order to install lights for traffic flow?
You might tell us to consider the change that the traf-
fic-calmers and circles have made to the Sandpiper area.
At the onset people wanting to get to the Treasure Coast
Mall quicker, used Westmoreland to bypass Port St. Lucie
Boulevard, the traffic became heavy. The Sandpiper area
people demanded something be done about the traffic
through their area.
The installed traffic calming installations have worked,
not because they calm peoples' diving, but because driv-
ers avoid that street and use PSL Boulevard and U.S. 1 in
favor of the aggravation of using what was once a short-
cut.
Do consider the circle one uses when coming from
Palm City. Evening rush hour, bumper-to-bumper traffic
enters a circle from the south and exits to the west. Any
traffic wanting to enter, either from the east or north,
cannot get into the circle if they yield to the tight line of
cars.
The traffic-flow that will be -generated by Becker Road
will soon force the elimination of the installation of mod-
ern traffic signals.
The attempt to reduce automobile damage and save
lives requires intersections to have stop signs, four-way-- -
stops, or stop signals.
Costs of constructing roads are becoming greater and
greater.
You people have the responsibility and the power to
control the needs of our area. Why will you authorize
building traffic circles anywhere in what is now a metro-
politan city?
The construction of traffic circles impedes, instead of
enhances, the flow of traffic and they will eventually have
to be destroyed in order to put in traffic signals.
No intersection control has been made that reasonably
handles both light and heavy traffic needs.
Please work toward the future needs of our city.

Cures for cancer: focus on causes

If there are no high-tech laboratory cures for cancer, after
years of costly research, why not focus on eliminating the
moder-day conditions that are causing ever increasing vic-
tims of cancer, such as smoking cigarettes, spraying toxic
pesticides on lawns and fruit trees, selling denatured bread
and other denatured foods, and selling junk foods that are
laced with synthetic colorings and artificial fragrances.
People's bodies, including children's bodies, are tired of
being victimized by unhealthy modem conditions. Each
person wants to be healthy, with healthy, wholesome foods
and a healthy, wholesome environment. With the NewYear
beginning, this is the right time to say "no" to the many
cause of cancer.
Cleaning up our human ways can eliminate the cancer
"plague" of the 20th and 21st centuries. Our ancestors got rid
of the bubonic plague by cleaning up their cities, and subse-
quently ended the rat infestation that caused the plague.

nator?!"

us paying for. It seems the county commissioners cannot
spend our tax money fast enough. Their troughs are over-
flowing from the recent run-up of property tax assess-
ments and their minuscule pullback in the military.
Will someone please inform them that the government
should be there only for the basics: police, schools and
roads?

Traffic alert on Cove and Salerno roads
Animals are constantly crossing, hunting for water and


food.
Ducks with ducklings, sand hill cranes, and turtles go slow-
ly, but the 3-foot long otter on Cove ran out suddenly.
Be ready to stop to save the animals, and to prevent an
accident when the-car in front of you stops suddenly.
Do riot pull out to pass the stopped traffic.
I've seen on two Sunday mornings, and both times the
drivers pulled into their respective churches.
As God's people, we have a special responsibility to His
creatures and to each other.

Rants & Raves
From page A6


Keeping something that is not theirs
I lost my beloved little pet, "Pebbles." I put up signs and I
put adds in the paper. I know somebody has her.
I find it horrible that someone could keep someone else's
dog, which means so much to them, and not return it.
I want to know what kind of people are out there that can
do such a horrible thing. It just breaks my heart that people
Scan be so cruel, keeping something that is not theirs. I'm sick
to my stomach that she is gone. I hope whoever has her
,reads this and thinks twice when looking at my baby, and I
Shop they return her to me.

Not our job to stop speeders
I would like to respond to a rant from.a reader in your Dec.
', 29 paper under the heading "Bad Driving."
SThe writer made a comment about a crossing guard who
"does nothing about the drivers as they speed through the
!school zone and right past her".
SI work as a crossing guard in Stuart, and we are under the
Sheriff's Office. It is not our job to stop speeders. I have tried
to caution drivers to slow down and have been met with a
'hand gestures, yelled and cursed at. We have been told that if
we see someone doing something illegal, we can get the
,plate numbers and call it in. I would suggest that your writer
do the same.
SI have also seen people talking on their cell phones, read-
ing maps, looking at the newspaper and otherwise, not pay-
ing attention to their driving.
SAs a crossing guard, my job is to make sure the children get
.across the street, or railroad crossing, safely. If a pedestrian
needs help, I am there to assist them if I can.
STo suggest that the crossing guard "just stands there and
,,does nothing," is totally unfair. We take our jobs seriously
and we ask the community for its help in making sure every-
,, one stays safe.
Thank for the opportunity to respond and I enjoy reading
your paper every week.

Why demolish a perfectly good house?
SMy mother and father lived in a house in Fort Pierce for 55
years. A land developer bought the house and property in
S2005. The house no longer exists. All that remains now are a
" few oak trees and some shrubbery.
': It's a shame to see them demolish a perfectly good house
like that. Don't they know that there are still people out there
"that don't have a place to live, such as the victims of the
' recent hurricanes.

A solution to the war in Iraq
I think the best solution to the war in Iraq, is to get out of


there now. Pull all of our troops back into Kuwait, where they
are friendly, and let Iraq kill each other in a civil war. Then,
we can go back in there when they're all gone. That's my
solution to the war.

Electric customers' gift to Fort Pierce
The electric rate increase awarded to the Fort Pierce Utili-
ties Authority is outrageous.
The Fort Pierce Utilities Authority gives and out right 6 per-
cent of its gross income to the city of Fort Pierce. This is usu-
ally about $4 million, according to an annual report. This
payment, which is an outright gift to Fort Pierce, comes from
customers of the electrical service.
This is outrageous and should be investigated by state and
federal authorities.
The story of the Federal Internal Revenue Service investi-
gating the doings of Fort Pierce is hilarious. Hopefully, these
stupid crooks who run the city hall will go to jail. The city
doesn't need to pay the $100,000 in back taxes, the individu-
als who arranged the theft should. If I received a paycheck
with no deductions at all, as the Mayor does, I would ask
some questions. It's perhaps such a tiny fraction of his cur-
rent income now that it may not have occurred to him.

Let's have some peace and quiet
Where is the surgeon general? He seems to be sleeping.
I bought a megaphone, made in China, with a warning
label, which said: 'Amplification of the voice with this mega-
phone can cause hearing loss and ear damage if directed at a
person at close range."
It also stated: "Children should only be allowed to use this
product when closely supervised by a responsible adult."
My point is: When are we going to stop allowing these
boom boxes from driving through our neighborhoods and
shaking our homes and windows with the vibrations?
Also, where are the child abuse protection people when 3,
4, and 5-year old children are sitting in these cars while they
blast their boom boxes. Where are the Ear, Nose and Throat
doctors telling people that the vibrations can cause, irrevoca-
ble ear damage?
I am in the medical profession and know how the ear is
damaged when stressed by loud vibrations.
I also just moved here from Brevard County to get a little
peace and quiet, which I guess I can't get here in Port St.
Lucie, unless we do something.
Citizens need to ban together to get the police department
to ticket these people and take away their boom boxes, if
necessary.
Let's have some peace and quiet.

Crossing guards are not traffic guards
This is in response to the rait about bad driving on Virginia


Avenue. I would like to comment about the duties of a cross-
ing guard. A crossing guard's duties are just what their name
implies, to guard the crossing and protect the children by
getting them across the street safely.
They are not traffic guards. The police are the ones who
control the speeding cars and write tickets. The crossing
guards are doing a great job at 13th Street and Virginia
Avenue. Keep up the good work!

To the person who stole
my outgoing mail on Dec. 21:
I want you to know what you took from me when you stole
the letters and cards from my mailbox on Dec. 21, between
3:30 and 5 p.m.
Whether your act was a stupid prank or an attempt to gain
easy money, in either event you broke the law and you
caused me an undue amount of aggravation.
Throughout the day of Dec. 21, I was writing Christmas
cards to friends and relatives, some of whom I only corre-
spond with over the holidays.
Each card had a personalized note, a handwritten message
meant only for the recipient. There was an anniversary card
for my sister and brother-in-law, who have had some diffi-
culties this past year, and the card was specially selected just
for them.
And, I guess you really hit "paydirt" when you opened the
card for my newspaper delivery lady and discovered the $20
gift card enclosed for her.
You should consider working as hard as she does in order
to gain extra money, instead of preying on others and break-
ing the law.
Perhaps I would never have known of your theft had it not
been for our postal carrier, who alerted us that nothing was
in the mailbox even though the flag was up.
It is my understanding that law enforcement is close to
arresting you. I hope you will be appropriately punished,
but I doubt that you will ever fully appreciate the actual loss
and anxiety your crime has wreaked 'on me during this busy
holiday season.

Older women using young eggs
In the news was an article about a 67-year old woman, who
gave birth to twins.
Lately, you hear in the news, but never in real life, about
older women giving birth in their 50s and 60s.
For ignorant reasons, people in the public seem to think
that because our life expectancy is longer, women's biologi-
cal clocks are being prolonged.

From page Al
"We're looking at 5.5
million pages in our pub-
lic records," he said.
"That doesn't even
include the court records.
We don't have the
resources to go through
millions of pages. It's a
monumental task"
If the aforementioned
proposal were adopted, it
would mean he and his
staff would have to go
through every record
book a person or agency,
such as a bank or title
company, requests to
assure there's no person-
al information anywhere
in the document. Many
of the record books are
4,000 pages long.
"We would start hold-
ing up the wheels of
progress if we have to
look at the books for all
these," Mr. Fry said. "The
public relies on the infor-
mation my office pro-
vides to help them make
decisions."
So far, his office has
been working on masking
the sensitive information
in its electronic records
that are available on the
Internet.
As for the paper
records, Mr. Fry has
something else in mind.
On Jan. 4, he appeared
before the St. Lucie
County Delegation to
request legislation that
would allow the sensitive
information to remain in
the public records dated
before Jan. 1, 2008. After
that date, the informa-
tion would not be includ-
ed in any new records.
Still, any person has the
right to request that the
clerk redact their person-
al information from pub-
lic records free of charge.


Race

flipped and hit a utility
pole," Officer Becker said.
"We estimate he was
doing 80 mph at the time
of the crash."
The officer added that
he does not believe Mr.
Arnold knew the drivers
of the other vehicles.
One lof the vehicles
stopped at the time of the
crash, and investigators
were able to question him
about the incident. The
other driverdid not stop,
and police are looking for
the man, who they said is
in his mid-to-late 20s.
Mr. Arnold, who was air-
lifted to St. Mary's Med-
ical Center in West Palm
Beach where he died, was
not wearing his seat belt
at the time of the crash,
Officer Becker said.
"There is no indication
at this point if drugs or
alcohol are involved,". he
said.
Police said there is not a
major problem with


street racing, until a
movie is released high-
lighting street racing,
such as "The Fast and
the Furious."
"Any organized event
is, quelled before it can
grow," Officer Becker
said. "Usually what hap-
pens is a couple of high-
performance vehicles
meet on a road, engines
are revved and in a few
seconds, we have a race
going down the road."
Which is exactly what
police believed what
happened in Mr.
Arnold's case. Officer
Becker said the three
cars involved probably
started racing from the
light at Floresta Drive or
Airoso Boulevard.
There was another
fatal accident resulting
from street racing in
2002. In June 2002, 17-
year-old Tommy Lacayo
was killed when the car
he' was riding in crashed.


OBUNIONS HAMMERTOES CORNS WARTSC


The driver, Kyle Benson,
was sentenced to 14 years
in prison last year for
vehicular homicide and
reckless driving.
Mr. Benson was racing
another car west on Port
St. Lucie Boulevard when
he lost control just west
of the North Fork of the
St. Lucie River.
Speed and inexperience
were two major factors in
Mr. Arnold's death, Offi-
cer Becker said.
"This is what happens
when you have an inex-
perienced driver in a
souped-up car, trying to
duplicate something
seen on a movie," he
said.
Mr. Arnold had his dri-
ver's license for one year
and four months, with no
traffic violations.

From page A7
No such luck. Those women having babies in their 50s
and 60s are using young eggs donated by young women.
According to the New England Journal of Medicine, and
'Advanced Maternal Age," by L.J. Heffner, the average age
a woman reaches menopause is 50, and the decline
begins at age 20.
When a woman reaches menopause, she no longer pro-
duces eggs. Hence, she can no longer conceive naturally.
By age 45, a woman's ability to conceive is less than 10
percent, and the spontaneous miscarriage rate is 95 per-
cent.

"School is really impor-
tant to me," Jernie said. "It
comes first, 1 want a good
education."
"My friends at school
tease me and call me a dork.
But really they are very sup-
portive and think it's cool.
They always ask me to sing
for them and come and
hear me sing at festivals and
stuff," Jernie said.
Her mom has played a big
roll supporting her dream
to become a star and has
took her around to all the
appearances.


"My mom has helped me
get to where I am because
she was willing to do it.
There are a lot of talented
kids on the Treasure Coast,
but some of them don't have
parents that will help them
succeed. Mine is and I am
thankful," Jernie said.
Being a single mom and
working two jobs, while
managing a rising star can't
be easy.
"At times I get stressed
out," said Ms. Talles.
"But it has been worth it. I
have to keep track of her
schedule, and make sure she
gets to where she needs to
be. She's just a kid, I don't
expect that out of her," she


said.
She said that stories about
child stars sometimes give
her some worries, but felt
she was helping Jernie to
remain a kid and not grow
up too fast.
Jernie said "stuff in her life"
is inspiring her, as she starts
to write her own songs.
"I am learning to write my
thoughts down and trying to
get my emotions on paper,"
Jernie said.
"My favorite singers are
Sugerland and Martina
McBride. I want to be just
like them. I want my music
to entertain people, but I
also want people to relate to
me. I hope that the stuff I


write will be inspiring," she
said.
She also said the coolest
person she has met in the
business has been singer,
DarrylWorley.
"He is the nicest person I
have ever met. I met him
back stage at the Martin
County Fair and he told me
he would listen to me sing.
He stayed for two songs,"
she said.
"I would like to be like that
with my fans; personal and
nice."

special clinic this Saturday,
Jan. 20 to spread the word
about adopting animals.
"After Christmas, we had
an influx of animals, people
didn't want and we were
jammed full," said Frank
Andrews, executive director.
"We were scratching our
heads trying to figure out


PATRI CK


what to do."
What the staff of the
Humane Society decided on
was to cut the price of adop-
tions. Throughout the
month, the Fort. Pierce-
based organization offered
dogs and cats at half the
adoption fee.
The normal adoption fee

is $60 for cats and $75 for
dogs.
Theadoption fee includes
an animal health check by a
veterinarian, first vaccina-
tions, spay or neuter and a
microchip.
For those who wish to
adopt an animal, an appli-
cation needs to be complet-
ed, and any other animals in
a prospective home need to
come to the shelter to
ensure the compatibility of
all the animals, Mr. Andrews
said.
In the month following the
Christmas holiday, the
Humane Society has taken
in an estimated 150 ani-
mals. There are currently
300 animals at the shelter.
"We were adopting out
two or three, while getting
five or six in, plus the ani-
mals being brought in by
animal control agencies,"
Mr. Andrews said.
Since the half-price adop-
tion program began at the
beginning of the month, the
Humane Society has adopt-
ed out about 100 animals.
During the special Adopt-
a-Thon scheduled for Satur-
day Jan. 20, pet owners can
get their animals' rabies


shots for a special price of
$7.50 each. Microchipping
and dog washing, will be
available, as well. The event
is being held at the Humane
Society in Fort Pierce.
"If this works, the board
has indicated that we will
continue this program in
the future," Mr. Andrews
said.
To help fund the Humane
Society and its programs,
the organization is holding
its third annual Fur Ball on
Feb. 3 at Tradition Town
Hall. Mr. Andrews said tick-
ets are still available for the
formal event, which is
expected to be a good time
for a good cause.
Tickets for the Fur Ball are
$75 each, or $125 per cou-
ple.
There will be dinner pro-
vided by Domenick's Corer
Grill in Fort Pierce, and a
silent auction.
The Humane Society of St.
Lucie County is located at
100 Savannah Road in Fort
Pierce.

Living in South Florida for 'dummies'


What to do if bit
by a snake -
and how to
avoid it
I wish a Florida native
would write a book titled,
"Living in South Florida
for Dummies."
It would have saved me
from a snakebite.
Yeah, I got bit.
It all happened when I
recently took a walk
around the block at my
community.
At 8 p.m. I threw on some
flip-flops and headed out
into the cool January
evening.
I generally bring my cell
phone with me so I can
"walk and talk" with my
Northernbound little sis-
ter.
Fifteen minutes into our
conversation, the sidewalk
became very dark because
of a street light malfunc-
tion.
As I rounded the dark
corner, I felt a weird sensa-
tion on my left big toe. I
said to my sister, "Oh my
gosh, I think something
Just bit my big toe."
She laughed and called


ROBIN RINKE
Staff writer
me a drama queen. That
really got my goat. I think
she was just jealous that I
could actually take a walk
in January.
Out of fear, I decided to
dismiss the snakebite the-
ory for something nicer;
like maybe a scratch from
a stick. Besides, that theo-
ry is not as deadly.
I hung up on my sister;
she was no support for a
possible snakebite victim
like myself.
Heck, I could be dying.
That would teach her to
call me a drama queen.
The biggest bites she gets
up there are from mosqui-
toes or wood ticks.
At the next street light, I


took a peek at my toe. Sure
enough, two fang marks
with blood. I began to
worry.
Would I make it home if
it were a poisonous snake
that bit me? How much
time did I have? I couldn't
run because I heard that
an accelerated heartbeat
could cause the poison to
get into your bloodstream
even faster.
I made it home. I went
right to my husband
Charles and showed him
the bloody fang marks. He
didn't seem too disturbed,
and said, Must have been
a little snake."
Little or not, a snake is a
snake! I couldn't believe
one bit me. He couldn't
believe I wore flip-flops
out in the dark.
I lookedup the number
to Poison Control on my
laptop while my husband
and daughter Phoebe
watched TV.
I dialed (800) 222-1222,.
The poison control
woman was so calm and
nice.
She first asked me ques-
tions to determine what
type of snake bit me. She
also said, "Sounds like a


small one bit you." Yeah,
OK, so it was small. It was
still a snake, people!
She asked me questions
like, is your toe numb? Are
you finding it hard to
breathe? Are you feeling
ill? All to which I said "no."
She said she would call
ahead to the hospital
emergency room for me,
but, after I saw how tiny
Sthe bite was and that I had
no sign of being bitten by a
poisonous snake I decided
to wait it out on my couch.
Charles went to bed.
After an hour of waiting,
my toe got a bit redder and
that was about it.
For those of you that, like
me, have been transplant-
ed from the North, take
my advice, *Don't wear
flip-flops at night while
taking a walk. *Have the
,poison control number
near your phone. *Don't
call your northern sister
for sympathy.
There are many things to
learn about life in Florida
for transplants. I seem to
be learning the hard way.

their visually impaired
customers.
"The Braille process
begins when we receive the
printed material, which we
scan, and if acquired digi-
tally, we download it to file.
This is was my first job
here," Mrs. Wiggins said.
"Then it's off to the tran-
scription department who
reads the file and compares
it to the printed matter.


Scanning errors are correct-
ed and formatting codes are
added.
"It is then run through a
Braille translator and print-
ed on Braille embossers and
sent to proofreading," she
said.
Blind proofreaders such
as Joe Abate, who is a 23-
year veteran of proofread-
ing, and "sighted" copy-
holders such as Cathy
Kurpil, read the Braille
material and compare it to
the print magazine or book.
Every single punctuation


and format is spoken for
complete accuracy.
"Literacy is just as impor-
tant to blind people as to
those with sight. It's our
only way to read," Mr. Abate
said.
"I'm certified by the
National Library Service to
proofread. The job has its
moments, and 23 years is a
long time, but I know it
helps others," he said.
He also said he prefers
reading to audio. He likes
having a hard copy in his
hands because it helps him

feel and "see" what the
author is doing.
At this stage in the
process, if an error is found,
it is sent back to data entry
for correction. After the cor-
rection is checked, the
material is released to the
plate embossing device
where it is embossed onto
zinc plates and read again
by a blind proofreader.
When the plates are error-
free, they are sent to the
pressroom, where the
Braille will be embossed on
paper.
"Two different types of
presses are used in the
manufacture of our Braille
-material," Mrs. Wiggins
said.
"Hand presses are used
for books and specialized
material and the Heidelberg
presses are used for maga-.
zines and other projects
where large quantities of
Braille are desired."
She said the Braille pages
are then loaded onto wire
racks and sent to the
bindery to be collated and
bound.
The bindery department
makes sure all books and
magazines are collated,
folded, stitched or put in
covers.
"Magazines are then fold-
ed and stitched and packed
for shipping. Book pages
are folded and punched.
Each copy is verified before
it is put in a hard cover pro-
duced in our book cover
department," Mrs. Wiggins
said.
She said, at this point, the
books are packed for ship-
ping.
The book cover depart-
ment makes each cover
from scratch, starting with
vinyl and ending with the
print book information on
the spine.
"Two of the five other
Braille houses use our serv-
ices for their covers," Mrs.
Wiggins said.
Braille International
employs more than 38 peo-
ple. The company ships
worldwide and touches


countless lives.
"I like being able to help
people and see them
progress in knowledge.
There is a limited amount of
printed resources in Braille
out there. It's not like going
into Barnes & Noble so,
we do are part," Mr. Redditt
said.
The 20/200 Fellowship,
which is located at 4992 S.E.
Kingfish Ave. in Port Saler-
rio, helps countless lives
with progressing in knowl-
edge and independence.
"We are here to help those
with vision loss to keep
their independence and
freedom," said Sindy
Greenwell, program co-
coordinator of 20/200 Fel-
lowship.
"Our organization serves
Palm Beach, Martin, St.
Lucie, Indian River and
Okeechobee counties. We
have a newsletter that is
sent to more than 1,000
people. At this time we
directly work with more
than 500 people," she said.
She said they serve all ages
and provide free Braille
training, summer camp,
discussion groups, fellow-
ship, after-school tutoring
and computer classes.
They are the only resource
center on the Treasure
Coast that provides demon-
strations and gives clients
the opportunity to try out
magnifiers, glasses and
closed circuit TVs before
they order what works best.
"The computer class is
very helpful. Without it, the
computer would be a use-
less .lump of metal to us,"
Ms. Greenwell said.
"We have technology now
that they did not have 20
years ago. We teach clients
how to use a software pro-
gram called Jaws. It actually
reads everything on the
screen to the user. It's amaz-
ing. Being computer literate
gives those of us with vision
loss more opportunities
and freedom," she said.
One such client is Ronald
Andrini, president of the
board of 20/200 Fellowship.


When Mr. Andrini came to
the fellowship he was legal-
ly blind.
Anyone with vision worse
than 20/200 that cannot be
improved with corrective
lenses is considered legally
blind. In addition, people
with a visual field of less
than 20 degrees diameter
(10 degrees radius) are also
considered legally blind.
"I lost my sight nine years,
ago from retinol detach-
ment. I lost everything. Get-
ting back into the work
force and on with life was
difficult. Learning the Jaws
software program on com-
puter was crucial for me:
The fellowship helped me,"
Mr. Andrini said.
"Now, I do everything,,
except see," said Mr. Andri-
ni.
"I have a job, more confi-'
dence, and best of all, I have
my independence and free-
dom. I even play percussion
in a salsa band," he said.
According to Prevent
Blindness America, over the
next 30 years, as the baby-
boomers age, the number
of visually impaired Ameri-
cans is predicted to double.
"The Treasure: Coast can
anticipate tremendous
impact from this growth!
Through the innovative
programs and services we
provide, the Fellowship is
poised to be our communi-
ty's response," said former
executive director Amy
Steinmetz, who took a vol-
untary lay-off due to budget
cuts at the fellowship this
year.
Both Braille International
and 20/200 Fellowship are
nonprofit organizations,
which are donations
dependent to meet payroll,
and remain in business.

in Port St. Lucie. From left to right are Dee Rocke, Staciy Wilson, Sarah Atkins and Milo-

New office opens in time for tax season


BY KIM COTTON
Staffwriter

PORT ST. LUCIE The
New Year brings the start of
tax season. In preparation
for those who need help
with the Internal Revenue
Service, a new H&R Block
office has opened to help
residents with their tax
needs.
The new office, on
Bayshore Boulevard,
opened Jan. 2. It provides
pay-based loans for those
who could use their tax
refund now, but don't have
their W-2s yet, as just one of
the many services the loca-
tion offers.
Staciy Wilson, office coor-
dinator, said that once peo-
ple start getting their W-2s,
they can come to her office
for their tax return prepara-
tions.
"We just open for tax sea-
son," Ms. Wilson said. "April
16 will be the last daywe will
prepare returns."
There are three other H&R.
Blocks in the area that stay
open year-round, Ms. Wil-
son said, for those who file
taxes at different times or
are on a fiscal tax year vs. a
'calendar year.
In addition to providing
tax filing services, H&R
Block can provide financial
assistance to clients, help
them open an IRA or savings
account with tax returns
and with mortgage services
through a third party.
"H&R Block has many,
many services," Ms. Wilson
said.
One of the newest services
offered is the Emerald pre-
paid Mastercard. It gives res-
idents without bank
accounts a place to put their
refund on a debit card and
use.it as a regular bank debit
card. Ms. Wilson said those
who sign up for the card can
then have their payroll
checks directly deposited on
the card in the future.


"It saves money on check
cashing charges," she said.
"We've had an awesome
response, which to me is
awesome because I would-
n't want to pay 3 or 4 percent
to cash my payroll check."


There are 16 offices in the
Fort Pierce district, which
includes Port St. Lucie and
Vero Beach. The main H&R
Block office\is in the Sabal

A CAR DEALER YOU CAN TRUST


T 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 fin(
people with no car dealership
experience who fit our uniquE
culture. However, even if yot
are working in a car dealership
today but are not proud of wha
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 frorr
most other car dealers:

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


.4
IT
..i .-


"EARL STEWART"


e means that when you call Earl
s Stewart Toyota there is no one
d screening my calls (or any other
p employee's calls) and you are
e connected directly, always. It
u means that my office door is
p always open and anyone can
t just walk in for a chat.


(2) Our policy is that it is
Snot important whether our
e customers are "right or wrong"
i about an issue. If the customer
"believes" she is right, we do
whatever is necessary to make
her happy. That can include full
s refunds on new or used vehicles.
SI empower every member of my
I team to spend or do whatever is
Necessary to make a customer
i happy if a supervisor is not
t immediately available to handle
t 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
S"miscellaneous supplies
charge", "environmental
Sfee" or some other form
| of hidden dealer profit
to customers' service
bills. This extra fee
usually ranges from
5% to 10% of the.
S service bill. We do
S 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*$a61

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

It's time


to put


out the


smoke

SA Ten I thought
About finally
VV writing a column
about the importance of
not smoking, I didn't think
there was anything I could
Essay that hadn't been said
before. I was wrong.
The surgeon general
recently announced that
breathing second-hand
smoke is dangerous,
particularly to children,
who are at risk for sudden
infant death syndrome,
bronchitis, pneumonia,
worsening asthma attacks,
poor lung growth and ear
infections.
Over time, it can cause
lung cancer, even in non-
smokers. There is no safe
smoke, and if you smoke
in the car, in the house,
even with windows open,
you will expose your loved
ones to many of the same
dangers that you are
exposing yourself to.
I have never smoked, so I
know that people will say
that I can't understand
how hard it is to stop. I do,
know, however, something
about fighting battles and
not giving up.
In that spirit, I've gath-
ered information about
smoking cessation. It's up
to you and your doctor to
decide what's best in your
situation.
Philip Morris USA,
which knows quite a bit
about getting people to
start smoking, has put
together Quit Assist,
which they call an infor-
mation resource for
people who want to stop
smoking.

nity and you used to get Home-

This is a NewYear, and I
believe that now is the time to
start getting smart. When I was
speaking with my friend, Nicki,
we hit on information that said
five to six small meals a day
were better than three large
meals for optimum health and
weight control.
Her question, "How do you do
that?" made me realize more
research was necessary.
Here are some good between
meal snacks: 1 medium apple,
1/2 small cantaloupe, a handful
of nuts, 1/2-cup egg substitute,
scrambled, 20 baby carrots with
2 tablespoons fat-free ranch
dressing, 1 stalk celery stuffed
with peanut butter, 1/2 small
sliced pear and 2 tablespoons
almond butter on 3 graham
crackers, 1 cup puffed wheat
cereal with 1/2-cup skim milk, 1
packet diet
hot chocolate with 5 mini
marshmallows, 1 fudge pop, 3


paper-thin slices
parrriesan cheese
sandwiched
between 6 paper- ,
thin apple slices,
1/2 cup low-fat ice
cream or 1 small
container low-fat
yogurt (no fruit on ,, '
the bottom, please),
an ice cream soda;
place about 1/3 cup
1 percent or skim
milk in a tall glass.
Pour in 2 table-
spoons chocolate syrup (it's fat-
free) or'sugar-free chocolate
syrup, stir. Add 2 small scoops
fat-free ice cream or frozen
yogurt. Pour in chilled seltzer
water, and serve with a straw.
Make a float with diet cola or
root beer and add the ice
cream. There are many more
choices I am sure, and if you
have a good idea, let me know.
We all know there are two '
kinds of fat, saturated, which
usually comes from animals,
and unsaturated that comes
from things that grow. There are
two kinds of unsaturated fat:
monounsaturated (the oil of
choice, raises the good HDL
cholesterol as it lowers the bad
LDL) and polyunsaturated.
The choice should always be
possible if you select monoun-
saturated fats, such as extra
Virgin olive oil, Canola oil and
peanut oil. Avocados and most
nuts contain these fats. Polyun-
saturated fat is found in veg-
etable oils such as sunflower,
corn and soy. While all are good
for you, the mono is the best
choice. However, oil is all fat

and should be used sparingly.
While a little is healthy, a lot will
pack on the pounds.
Next week we will talk about
foods you should never eat.
Today I will talk about one and
I'm sure the information will
shock you.
Potpies have been a quick
easy staple in many homes. I
always knew they were high-fat,
but each person is served one
pie. Right? Pepperidge Farm
flaky crust potpie lists total
calories at 510 and saturated fat
at 9 grams. However, that's for
1/2 a potpie. I ask you, who eats
only 1/2 of a potpie? Read
labels carefully and pay atten-
tion to how many servings are
listed.
Today's column will give you
great choices for potpies in the
original sometimes high-fat
version and the low-fat version.
For the potpies, you can use
leftover chicken or turkey, a
whole chicken that has been
cooked and the meat picked off
the bones or boneless chicken

Now that the holidays
are over, it's time to
add some color to
your garden landscape.
Adding color to your
environment is especially
important now that the
holidays are over.
Color is also one of the
main elements that will
make your yard stand out.
One of the most practical
ways is through roses.
Roses are beautiful flowers
that symbolize love and
friendship. Imagine yourself
entertaining your friends in
a lovely alcove surrounded
by colorful flowers. Roses
are relatively easy to grow,
and are a great choice,
because they will often
grow where other flowers
won't because of Florida's
intense summer sun.
Roses can be successfully
planted in either containers
or in the ground. In either
case, the plants should be in
well-drained soil in a sunny
location.
If you plant your treasures


LET ME TRYTHOSE PANTHER TEETH, DOCTOR pt M
Q: How new is the idea of cosmetic dentistry?
A: Cosmetic dentistry, it seems, is not something new. And it's not just for movie
stars. An archaeological exploration in Mexico found, recently that thousands of years
ago ancient Mexicans were being fitted with dramatic dentures for ceremonial
purposes. Researchers found human remains on which the upper front teeth had
been ground down so they could be fitted with animal teeth--wolf or panther
teeth-for certain ceremonies. Fitting humans with the teeth of beasts of prey
became more common centuries later in the May an age. Researchers have also found
in Mexico instances of turquoise fitted into teeth and various examples of filed teeth.
The quest for perfect teeth and flashy adornment continues today. Tooth jewelry is the latest trend,
replacing dental grills as the way to make a fashion statement in your mouth. The jewels are meant to be
attached by a dentist with a composite substance. They're designed to last from 8 months to two years or
more. Many dentists are not fans of this practice, pointing out that plaque and bacteria could collect
around the jewels and create problems. Talk with your dentist about acceptable-ways to improve the
appearance of your teeth.

in the ground, be sure the
soil drains well. Dig a hole
about 15-18 inches wide
and 18 inches deep. Put a
layer of gravel on the
bottom of the hole. This is
to allow drainage so water
drains away from the root
system. The same would
apply if you plant your roses
in a container.
The next step is to prepare
the soil you are going to use
to plant your roses. You
should use a mix of a good
quality potting soil with
around half the mixture
composed of organic
matter, such as mulch or
peat. You can also use some
bone meal with your soil
mixture.
Now, it's finally time to
plant your prize. Carefully
remove the plant from its
original container. Place the
plant in your prepared hole,
so the top of soil layer on
the plant is the same level
as the surrounding soil. Fill
the gap underneath the
plant with your prepared
soil mixture.
Now, fill the gaps around
the remaining parts of the
plant and pack down lightly.
You are now ready to water
your newly planted rose.


Garden Nook


with Joe Zelenak


OK, you finally have your
roses planted and they are
bursting with color. Now
you need to do some
periodic maintenance to
maintain that beauty.
Since we live in such a
humid climate, certain
diseases, such as black
powdery mildew and black
spot can both be a common
problem. Both diseases are
much easier to control if

you prevent them from
happening in the first place,;
Once established, both
are very difficult to get rid -
of. Although there are many,
products on the market that;
are used for disease control
on roses, Orthenex reigns as'
the king. The product
controls not only diseases,
but also controls insect
infestation as well.
If you are interested in an
all-natural cure for fungus,
how about baking soda?
That's right, baking soda.
Plain ordinary baking soda
added at the rate of 3
teaspoons per gallon of
water acts as to prevent
Sfungus.Youthen can add a
small amount of mild dish
detergent to the mix to act
as a spreader sticker.
This will work as a preven-:
tive measure, but will not
work well if an infection is
present. Be sure not to
make your mix too strong,
as damage to your roses
could result. -
With all the remedies that.'
we have at our disposal for
controlling rose problems, -,
probably the best way is
prevention.
One way is to avoid
watering late in the day so
the leaves of the plant do
not stay wet all night. Also, it
is important to have good
soil drainage.
Roses are heavy feeders
and like a good supply of
food. Roses should be fed at
least once a month.
You can use a good quality
commercial food or you can
use your own mix, which
should consist of 1 cup of
bone meal, 1 cup of cotton-
seed meal, one-half cup of
blood meal, one-half cup of
fishmeal and one-half cup
of Epsom salts. You can
spread this mix around
each plant and then water
in.

When a car sale is not a sale


Common definition
of the word sale is
"an occasion (usual-
ly brief) for buying at
specially reduced prices."
The problem with many
sales advertised by car
dealers and other retailers
is that they are virtually
always advertising a sale,
which violates the part of
the definition of a sale that
it is brief. Also, the price
they advertise is not
"specially reduced," but is
the same price you can
always buy that car for.
It is very hard to tell a
legitimate sale from one
that's not. One suggestion
is to be somewhat skepti-
cal if a dealership is
constantly advertising
sales and specials.
If you are always
having a sale, then by
definition it is not a sale.
Wal-Mart addresses this in
a very upfront manner.
They advertise that their
prices are low every day
and that's exactly how they
mark their merchandise.
Wal-Mart doesn't try to
trick you into coming in
Son a certain day or week-
end because, if you don't,
you won't get the lowest
price.
There is an axiom in
advertising that says you
must always have a "cause
for action" built into your
ads. When you say all the
good things about your
products and prices, you
don't have a good ad
unless the reader has a
specific reason to come
into your store immediate-
ly or within a short time.
The reason for this is
pretty obvious. Most
people are procrastinators.
I am. That's why I am
typing this column at 4:26
p.m. on Friday and my
deadline is 5 p.m. That's
what sales are all about.


EARL STEWART
On Cars

Make the prospective
buyer think that if he
doesn't come in by Sunday
at 6 p.m. the prices will go
back up again on Monday.
Unfortunately, that is
rarely the truth. You can
almost always buy that car
on Monday for a price just
as good.
As you know, buying a
car is often a negotiation
between the buyer and the
seller for the highest trade
allowance for the trade-in
and the lowest price or
monthly payment on the
new car. A car dealer will
sell you a used or new car
at his lowest price, if you
are a good negotiator,

lowest price on the Inter-
net. This is a great place to
determine the validity of
the "sale" price. Be careful
when checking prices on
the Internet and the
newspaper because most
dealers charge a "dealer
fee/doc fee/dealer prep"
on top of the selling price.
This price ranges from
around $500 up to $1,000.
Florida law requires that
dealer fees be included in
advertised prices, but this
law is regularly broken in
the newspaper and
Internet ads.
Another thing is to find
out how many of the type
of cars you might be
interested in are on "sale."
The trick here is to


seven days a week in
almost every case.
One of the few excep-
tions is when the manu-
facturer puts on an incen-
tive for a short time,
because this effectively
lowers the price to the
dealer. He is likely to-pass
along some or that entire
price cut to you.
Another exception is
when a dealer inadvertent-
ly stocks too many vehi-
cles of one or more mod-
els. This isn't something
that would likely happen
often or certainly not all
the time. Many dealers
always advertise that they
have too many cars in
stock. If I owned a dealer-
ship that always had too
many cars, I think I would
consider replacing the
man who ordered my cars.
If a sale is legitimate, it
should be a relatively rare
occasion and there should
be an honest, understand-
,able motivation for that
car dealer to take a much
lower profit on those
particular cars.
Of course, the acid test is
to shop the sale price with
that dealer's competitors.
I find that dealers
usually will quote their

Alive
From page B1


Studies have shown that
the people who are
successful in their efforts
to quit follow five steps,
the keys to quitting:
Get support and
encouragement.
Learn new skills and
behaviors.
Get medication and
use it correctly.
*Be prepared for relapse
or difficult situations.
I'll deal with the first
three this week and the
last two next week.
SI'll also tell you how to
get a free copy of Quit
Assist and other resources.
SPreparation is always a
key to success. Here are
,some tips for making a
start:
+ Pick a date, perhaps
your birthday, an anniver-
sary, or your child's
,birthday and mark it on
,your calendar. Give
-yourself about a month to
prepare.
" Make a list of all the
ways not smoking will
'improve your life and your
,health.
: If you've tried to quit
before, think about what
I didn't work. Plan to avoid
activities or people who
Encourage your to smoke
as much as you can.
Think about how you
will handle difficult
situations.
Line up a support
Network, including your
doctor, who may have
ideas for medication to
help you.
Think about why you
Smoke, and what activities
.'you can pursue that will
.-relieve stress and provide
relaxation.
Get support and
encouragement
SStudies have shown that


the odds of successfully
kicking the habit increase
if you don't try to go it
alone.
Talk to friends, family
and co-workers about why
you want to stop. Ask them
to write encouraging notes
and stick them all over
places where you usually
smoke, above the TV, on
the dashboard, near the
coffeepot.
Ask people not to smoke
around you. If you know
successful quitters, ask
them how they did it.
Get expert help. Speak to
your doctor or nurse, but
also look into quit-smok-
ing programs at local
hospitals. You can try
telephone or online
support as well.
Learn new skills
and behaviors
Plan ways to distract
yourself when the urge to
smoke hits: use nicotine
gum or lozenges, take a
walk, call a friend or do
something you enjoy.
Have other things nearby


to hold in your hand or
pop in your mouth, such
as carrot sticks, fat-free
popcorn or sugarless gum
and candy.
Look for activities that
don't include smoking to
rewards yourself. Perhaps
you can buy yourself
something with the money
you save each week.
Be prepared for with-
drawal. You may not feel
well as your body read-
justs, but this will pass.
Some relaxation tech-
niques can help.
Next week I'll discuss
medications and prepar-
ing for a smoke-free life.
Here are some resources
to get you started:'
To order Quit Assist, call
(888) 784-7848 or read it
online at www.philipmor-
riseusa.com.
For details on the five
keys, order a copy of the
"You Can Quit Smoking
Consumer Guide" by
calling (800) 3.85-9295 or
log on to www.surgeon-
general.gov/tobacco/quits. h

From page B3
advertise a car at a huge
discount, but there are
only one or two cars
available at that price. The
chances of you buying one
of them are slim or none.
They may say, "many
others available-at similar
savings," but the trick here
is to know what the
definition of "similar" is.
Scientists say humans
are very similar to chim-
panzees.
The other trick on
switching you to another
car at "similar" savings is
that a dealer can now
legally add his dealer
fee/doc fee to the second
car, because it was not
advertised.

for its music, museums,
history and theater festi-
vals.
My fiance, James and I,
were visiting the Papal
Palace in Avignon where
we strolled through the
immense building that the
"exiled" Pope Clement V
began constructing at the
beginning of the 14th
century. As our tour
proceeded, monastic
(monastery) simplicity and
austerity (strict teachings)
give way to bright frescoes
(hand painted) and
flamboyant ceilings, signs
of how the initial papal
asceticism (strict practices)
faded over time. As we


headed toward the exit, we
made time to stop at the
palace's new wine shop,
"The Boutellerie."
James knows a lot about
American, Italian, German
and French wines, but
nothing of Rhone.
We're finally realizing that
gastronomy and wine can
be part of our cultural
attractions, as well.
The Boutellerie, which
opened in July 1999, is the
premier sign of this
renaissance. More than 40
winegrowers from the
nearby vineyards of
Chateauneuf-du-Pape and
Gigondas are represented.
This shop occupies a grand
setting, the former papal
artillery room. A tasting of
five wines is offered for just
$5. Director Joachim
Autard, a former wine-
grower, chatted with us
and the other guests in
English and French.
Outside the palace,
Avignon is a lively, cosmo-
politan town of about
100,000 people. A new,
high-speed TGV train line,
which travels at speeds
more than 186 mph,.
provides frequent service

from the city of light to the
magnificent Mediter-
ranean Sea.
Thick medieval walls,
circle the old city. Pedestri-
ans have free run of many
lovingly maintained old
squares, closed to traffic,
but open to cafes, and in
the center of town, a
splendid double-decker
carousel.
During the July and
August theater festival,
these squares explode with
street productions of
puppets and marionettes,
dance, mime and cabaret,
as well as serious, Broad-
way-caliber presentations.
Historic sites include: the
Palace of the Popes, the
Pont d'Avignon(Pont de St.
Benezet), the opera, the
Hotel de Ville, various
churches and Cloitre St.
Louis and the Rocher des
Doms;
If you like the Smithson-
ian in Washington, D.C.,
then you'll love these
following museums: the
Musee en Images (more
than 1000 images of
Avignon), Musee du Petit
Palais (painting and
sculpture from the Middle
Ages to the Renaissance),
Musee Calvet and the
Musee Lapidaire (archeol-
ogy, prehistoric times,
paintings from the 16th to
the 20th centuries).


Last, but not least, some
-activities to enjoy include
theater, opera, galleries,
horseback riding, tennis,
Squash, ice skating and
boat rides on the Rhone
River.
A visit to Avignon is a
wonderful way to kick off a;
wine tour of this part of the
Southern Rhone. From
downtown, it takes just 20
minutes to drive north to
Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
This picturesque village
sits above the Rhone River,
and the old castle is visible
in the distance.
You'll find lots of shops
owned by winegrowers
there, most offering only
their own production,
often at inflated prices. An
exception is Maison des
. Vins, located on the main
street. It represents 60
different estates, and
tasting are free.
We were one of those
couples who didn't have
the time to visit lots of
different estates. We
wanted to have a place
where we could sample
and buy a wide choice of
Chateauneuf wines.
For visitors who had
more time, the tourist
office handed out clear
maps with directions to the
major estates, most of
which were open to the
public. Some, such as
Chateau La Nerthe and
Chateau Mont-Redon,
don't require reservations.
A few of the most presti-
gious names, such as
Chateau du Beaucastel and
Chateau Rayas, do and are
selective about who they
welcome.

Volunteers and kids jump into reading


BY WENDY DWYER
For Hometown News


Zach Simonetti and Dan
Hafner are an unlikely pair
whose friendship has last-
ed through changes of
schools, jobs, and lifetime
milestones, such as losing
baby teeth and gaining
access into the American
Association of Retired Per-
sons.
Through it all, the pair
gets together once a week


to read, hang out, and
once in a great while, eat
lunch together.
Zach, a student at St.
Lucie Elementary School,
and, a mechanic for the St.
Lucie County School Dis-
trict and volunteer reading
mentor, became friends
through Big Brothers Big
Sisters' Jump Into Reading
program.
Jump Into Reading is an
innovative program imple-
mented by Big Brothers Big
Sisters of St. Lucie, Indian


River, and Okeechobee
Counties.
Volunteer mentors agree
to spend one hour each
week in a school setting
with kindergarten, first, or
second graders, who are
struggling with reading.
Studies have shown that
students who have a good
solid foundation and grasp
of reading by second
grade, tend to be exponen-
tially more successful

However, with so many
others to see, this shouldn't
dampen anyone's enthusi-
asm.
From Chateauneuf, it
was only a short ride to the
region's other leading wine
village, Gigondas.
You will definitely need
to budget some time to
stroll the narrow, cobble
stone streets of the villages.
Rochegude offers views of
vineyards and distant
mountains.
Gigondas isn't the only
lovely town on the eastern
side of the. Rhone River.
From its left bank there fan
out many delightful
Provencial wine towns:
Seguret, Cairanne,
Rasteau, Vacqueyras and
Rochegude.
They feature medieval
castles and churches and
sand- and rust-colored
houses with tile roofs,


surrounded by an ocean of
vineyards growing on flat
land and low hills.
In Grignan, in the Drome
department, medieval
streets run in circles
around a massive castle
that rises up on a hill. Stop
by the Village Provencial
Miniature, a-re-creation of
turn-of-the-century
Provencial village life
involving more than 1,000
little figures posed in
vignettes (an un-bordered
picture, often a portrait,
that shades off into the
surrounding color at the
edges.)
In Coustellet, east of
Avignon, there's an inter-
esting museum devoted to
lavender.
After a day of sightseeing
and tasting, relax at .one of
the fine restaurants or
hotels in the area, Where
tourists are made to feel


welcome and comfortable
wherever they go.
If you want to take a dip
in a pool at sunset or dine
at the edge of a vineyard,
then this country is for
you. Or, perhaps you
would prefer to stay in
Avignon, which pumps
with energy by night as
locals and tourists stroll
the tree-lined streets and
people-watch from dozens
of outdoor cafes.
Once in Avignon, you
won't want to leave, and
the town is too interesting
tq let you go.
Avignon is full of history,
life, youth, art, music and
activity. This corner of the
Rhone Valley is big, and
there's something here for
everyone.

"For nine years, mem-
bers of the community
have been generously
donating their time and
talent to help instill a love
of reading in children of
the community," said
Melodee Daniello, school-
based program director for
BBBS for the past seven
years.
Currently, more than 600
children and nearly 300
volunteers are involved
with the program.
"Volunteers for the Jump
Into Reading program
need no special education-
al degrees or training, just
a love of reading and a will-
ingness to share an hour,
once or twice a week, with
a child who finds reading a
struggle.
"Volunteers range in age
from 16 year-old students,
enrolled in a high school
degree program, to senior
citizens, well into their late
80's, who faithfully read
and visit with students
once or twice each week,"
Mrs. Daniello said;

benefits of the reading
program include reduced
absenteeism among stu-
dents on their scheduled
mentoring day, and a more
positive attitude at both
school and home.
"Every week when I walk
in the classroom, the other
kids immediately start
calling out, telling my child
his mentor is here," one
mentor 'said. 'And every
week, at least two more
children ask me if I'll be
their mentor, too. I know it
makes the child I'm work-
ing with feel so special on
the days when I come to
work with him."
Many of the children
being mentored come
from single parent families
and have several siblings,
so they're not accustomed
to receiving individual
attention and assistance
with reading.
Despite -that they are
working in the school sys-
tem and often in a class-
room setting, the reading
mentors are pre-screeried
and undergo the same
thorough background
check as Community
Based mentors. They sign
in and log their hours each
week, and work regularly

with a case manager from
Big' Brothers Big Sisters,
who helps volunteers
make a strong individual
and educational connec-
tion with the child. That
connection encourages a
love of literacy from very
young age.
Nearly every student
who is mentored through
the program shows signifi-
cant improvement in liter-
acy skills during regular
testing, and many are
reading at .or above their
grade level by the end of
the first year of the men-
toring relationship.
For Zach and Mr. Hafner,
the mentoring relationship
that began as a weekly
reading session, has blos-
somed into a genuine
friendship.
Mr. Hafner is able to act
as a positive male role
model in the life of his
younger friend, and Zach
introduced Mr. Hafner to
the world of dinosaurs,
something the two have
explored through some of
their book choices.
Mr. Hafner also remind-
'ed his older friend about
the joys and frustrations of
being a kid. He said it's
easy to become desensi-
tized as the years go by,
and the mind fills up with
'adult-sized' problems.
And while it's only an
hour every week, Mr. Hafn-
er says he looks forward to
Tuesday mornings, when
he visits with Zach. He
added that reading with
the youngster is one of the
highlights of his week.

Brothers Big Sisters, or if
you'd like to become a

Then do something about

starts with having the
energy, time, desire and
resources to turn your
dreams into realities. If
you lack the necessary
energy and passion, this is
fixable many times. It
starts with taking the trash
out of your mind, body
and heart.
It's like the first step in a
garden, which is to clear it
of the negativity accumu-
lated from the past. This
lightens things up. Then
you renew it by the tilling
and fertilizing. How long
has it been since you went
through your life, took an
inventory and began to
release the old things that
have been sapping your
energy and desire and

right back to the same old
habits?

foods, drugs or alcohol. If
humans were supposed to
smoke, the supreme
creator would probably
have put a smokestack in
our heads. Addictions and
compulsive behavior are
like weeds or crabgrass
that we have allowed to
take over our lives and
suck out our life force. You
can't just stop a negative
habit by saying "I'll never
do that again." Yes, you
will.
Changing doesn't come
until the desire goes away
and the temptation fades.
The only sure way to do
this is to feed the addic-
tion less and less each
time until the desire to
feed it weakens. Crabgrass
allowed to grow in the
lawn or garden is tough.
Once it takes root, you
can't pull it out by hand.

You have to dig it out to get
rid of it. Even that is hard.
So in human life, the
inner journey starts with
releasing, learning from,
blessing, forgiving the past
as needed to make room
for a new positive fruitful
life. If you are going on a
long journey you service
the car and fill up the gas
tank before starting out.
Most people take better
care of their cars than they
do their own body vehicle.
If you go with the above
plan, it can clearly be seen
how important it is to eat a
good healthy breakfast
and fill up the tank before
starting the days' journey.
Most of us eat large
dinners when we don't
need the extra energy. Eat
a good, healthy breakfast,
a moderate lunch and a
light dinner and your
weight will decrease, you
will sleep better and your
mind will be calmer and
more relaxed. Let's carry
this idea one step further.
If you have an idea or
plan for a new project,
take care of your physical


health and energy needs.
Then make a solid plan.
Write it down and affirm it
out loud every day. This is
planting and watering the
idea and turns it into a
living seed of desire in
your heart.
Next, surrender it to the
universe and wait. Believe
that you are worthy to
create a new and better
life. This creates faith, trust
and patience in the higher
power of the universe. If
you lack patience, it is
because you don't trust the
universe. The next step is
vital. See it in your minds
eye and believe that you
have it now and are using


and enjoying the fruits
now for you, your family
and friends. This creates
passion for the potential
living in that idea. So when
you start out each day, feel
the passion and joy first.
This increases the poten-
tial for the idea to take
root, have the blessing
upon it and begin to grow.
This is the greatest secret
on earth.
With it all things are
possible. We can manifest
everything we desire in
abundance by using it. The

experience, wealth or
privilege. It has everything
to do with wanting to find
and live our true purpose
and fulfill our destiny. Isn't
this the way you truly want
to live? You can do it. I
know you can. It's inside
your heart and soul right
now crying to be released.
You were born to do great
things.
Once you are using it and
feeling the passion and
rewards, take care of your
own and family needs first.
You did all the hard work
of turning your life
around. You are an heir to
the riches of the unlimited
universe. Become child-
like. You do your work. Let
the universe do its work.
Then give back to those
who were a light unto your
path and inspired you on
your journey of discovery.
Take care of your spiritual
family. Give back from
your abundance to keep
them going.
Next, when others
hungry to learn see you
light they will want to
know how you mastered
the greatest secret. Show
and teach them. They will
soon grasp it and create a
better world. This is the
rippling effect of wonder-
ful causes set in motion
that bring love, peace,
health, abundance, faith,
pleasure, joy and passion
to a hungry world.
One person can make a
difference. You and I are
those people, along with
all others searching for
their true purpose and


self. My greatest passion
and desire that you find
all these things today and
for all your erthly days to
come. We ddi by living it i
now. The graest news is,
that the best.syet to
come.

Mayfield
From page B14
Thee."
"Losing a parent is not
easy for anyone," he said.
"Katrina was an experience
so large it's hard to find the
words. It's so important for
Americans to come togeth-
er so the culture doesn't die
with my father's genera-
tion."
Although he speaks of
jazz with an academic's
interest, Mr. Mayfield
.never forgets that he is, first
and foremost, an enter-
tainer.


"I'd just like to think peo-
ple have a really good time
(at our concerts). When
people get dressed up and
come to see us, the music
puts a sparkle in their eyes,
or maybe a tear. Either way,
it's therapeutic and cele-
bratory. You want them to
say, 'that was a great night.'
That's what I hope we're
doing," he added.
Mr. Mayfield said he's
grateful for the opportunity
to represent his city as a
cultural ambassador and


for the chance to play the
music he loves. It's the grat-
itude that propels him to
keep fighting for his city
and growing as an artist.
'Accomplishments don't
stand still," he said. "If you
turn around and look back,
you don't accomplish any-
thing.
"I listened recently to a
Louis Armstrong recording
from the 20s; that's almost
a century ago. It's,hard to
feel accomplished when
Louis Armstrong was play-


ing the same instrument. I
have a long way to go," he
said.
The Fort Pierce Jazz and
Blues Society & the Lyric
Theatre will present Irvin
Mayfield and the New
Orleans Jazz Orchestra for
two shows: at 6 and 8:30
p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 6, at
the Lyric Theatre, 59 S.W.

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!"

The 2006-07 season has-

team. The team that
returned the bulk of its
players from a squad that
made a state Final Four-

Over the next few

Kareem Rodriguez and his

Fire kicks-off season in Palm Bowl


Despite solid defense,
Fort Pierce falls in*
season opener
BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
As the NFL Playoffs entered this
second weekend, there was another
football league just getting started.
The Fort Pierce Fire minor league
football team played host to the
National BowlWeekend Jan. 13-14 at
Lawnwood stadium in Fort Pierce,
welcoming in teams from Califor-
nia, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, New
York and Florida.


On Jan. 13 the Fire kicked off its
season with a game against the Mil-
waukee Bulldogs in the Florida
Bowl. Although Fort Pierce looked
great on defense, their lack of
offense hurt, as they fell to the Bull-
dogs, 10-0 in the team's first game of
the season.
The Fire struggled to maintain any
rhythm with the ball, going three
and out on two of their first three
possessions. Fort Pierce lost a fum-
ble on the first play of their second
possession, which led to a Milwau-
kee field goal.
The 37-yard kick remained on the
scoreboard as the only points of the
game until Bulldogs running back


Calvin Thomas ran in a 1-yard
touchdown with 55.2 seconds left in
the game.
Fort Pierce had a shot to get some
last second points after Antorry
Young ran the ensuing kickoff back
46 yards, but the Fires offensive mis-
cues continued with a short run,
two incomplete passes, and an off-
side penalty.
Fire quarterback Quinton Jackson
was sacked on fourth and 11 to end
the game.
"Offensively we struggled," said
Fire offensive coach Jerome Stone.
"We got a good group of receivers

Fort Pierce Fire's Mike Carter (no. 77) scrambles for a loose ball against the Milwaukee
Bulldogs at Lawnwood Stadium Saturday, Jan. 13. The Fire lost the pre-season game 10-
0. They will begin their season Saturday, Jan. 20 with a game against the Treasure Coast


Pirates.

and running backs, but we
need to work on blocking
up front in order to help
us."
Jackson, who was the
team starting quarterback
during the Fires' inaugural
year in 2003, replaced
quarterback Tommy Share
late in the second quarter
after Share left the game
with a hyper-extended
knee. He is day-to-day.
"This game was a wake-
up call for our offense to
work harder in practice.
Offense always takes more
time to come together
than defense," Jackson
said. "Tommy plays great
ball, but unfortunately he
went down. Hopefully he'll
be back next week."
Linebacker Willie Boston
led all defenders with 10
solo tackles. He also had
five assists and was named


the games defensive MVP.
Boston, a 1998 graduate
of Port St. Lucie High
School, felt good about the
way his defense played,
but also felt the offense
needed to play better if the
Fire plan on winning down
the line.
"It's kind of reassuring,
knowing pretty much
where (the defense) is at.
But we got to step it up in
practice. They were (12-1),
so they were a good team,
they were no push over,"
said Boston. "Offense got
to step it up a little bit. If
they give us something,
we'll be good to go."
It wasn't all lost for the
Fires offense on the after-
noon. Fort Pierce was able
to control the game clock
efficiently, winning the
time of possession battle
handedly. Fort Pierce had
the ball for 41:22, while
Milwaukee had it for 18:38.
But despite maintaining
possession for two-thirds


of the game, the Fire still
had to rely on its defense
to keep them in the game.
Before leaving the game
with injury, Share looked
good in the pocket for the
Fire. He left the game after
completing for 4-6 passes
for 67 yards, while leading
the team in rushing with
30 yards on six carries.
Stone said that quarter-
back position wasn't com-
pletely locked up as of yet,
especially with the injury
to Share. Along with Jack-
son, they Fire also have
Jason Taylor on the roster,
who was the teams signal
caller last year.
The Fire will play their
second game of the year
against the Treasure Coast
Pirates at Guy Davies Field
in Stuart, Saturday, Jan. 20
at 7 p.m.

A s a child, I often spent
most of my summers
n upstate NewYork. I
can remember taking the
short drive to Cooperstown
to the Baseball Hall of Fame.
While I never attended any
of the introduction cere-
monies, I could picture in
my mind's eye not only what
it would be like to be there,
but what it would be like to
be one of the players
making an acceptance
speech.
Well, my baseball talent
ran far short of a trip to
Cooperstown. In fact, while
I am pretty good at many
sports, I am master of none.
There will be no speech for
me in front of a large crowd
gathered at the Hall of
Fame.
Still, I have longed to
attend an induction cere-
mony.
Years ago, I planned to
travel to Cooperstown to see
my baseball hero, Mike
Schmidt, get inducted.
Family and work commit-
ments saw to it that the trip
never happened for me. I
was certain that I would
never know the excitement
of attending a Hall of Fame
induction ceremony. That
was until a short month or
so ago.
Unbeknownst to me, we
have a Hall of Fame right
here in our backyard. The
PGA of America's PGA Golf
ProfessionaJames Stammer
has been an avid golfer and
golf enthusiast for 30 years.
He hosts the TuesdayNight
GolfShow on WPSL 1590-
AM radio station. Contact

him at
jstammer@yahoo.com.l Hall
of Fame is at the PGAVillage
in Port St. Lucie.
On Dec. 8, seven men
were inducted into the Hall,
and I was there to witness
my first induction ceremo-
ny.
The PGA Golf Professional
Hall of Fame originated in
1940 at the suggestion of
famed sports writer Grant-
land Rice.
After spending most of its
years in Pinehurst, N.C., and
then in St. Augustine, the
Hall was moved to PGA
Village in 2003.
This year's class included a
friend of mine, GaryWiren
along with Dow Finster-
wald, Jack Nicklaus, Manuel
De La Torre, William Heald,
Roger Warren and Bill
Eschenbrenner.
Each inductee was
honored for his passions for
and contributions to the
game of golf and the PGA of
America.
The ceremony was held at
the PGAs Learning Center.


Despite the coldest weather
of the year, the crowd was
quite large and easily filled
the stands brought in for the
event. The late arrivals
gathered around in stand-
ing-room only fashion.
Manuel De La Torre led
things off. De La Torre, a top
teaching professional, spoke
of his desire for education.
He talked of how his goal
was to promote education
in everything in life, not just
in golf.
Dow Finsterwald, a PGA of
America member since
1956, was next in line. He
thanked his wife, Linda,
with whom he has enjoyed
53 years of marriage, for
being there with him
through his life.
Dow concluded his speech
with a tear in his eye.
"I am proud to be a part of
golf, the greatest game of all.
I feel privileged to be a PGA
,professional for 50 years,"
he said.
William Heald, who began
his career as a caddie, was
the highlight of the evening
for me.
The man with the bubbly
personality started off his
moment with flare.
"I haven't had this much
fun since I led the cabbage
strike of 1949," he told the
amused crowd. With a big
grin and a mischievous
twinkle in his eye he then
added, "We won. Our wages
went from 75 cents to $1."
The man best known as
the "Greatest Golfer Ever"
was not on hand that
evening. Jack Nicklaus had
prior commitments half-
way around the world that


he tried diligently to break,
but could not make it. His
lovely wife, Barbara accept-
ed on his behalf.
Barbara spoke of how Jack
started playing the game at
age 10. Jack wanted to
spend some time with his
father who was recovering
from a broken ankle. Jack
went to the course with his
dad and between holes,
while dad rested, Jack would
chip and putt. It was the
beginning of a grand career,
one that Jack says he owes
to all PGA professionals.
My friend GaryWiren
followed. Wiren spoke of
how his wife, Tracy, stayed
home with their four
children while he traveled
and taught: He told us that
golf is not about $40 million
courses and $20 million
clubhouses. It's about
playing the game with
friends and new acquain-
tances.
He concluded with a
profound statement.
"I want to thank my mom
for reading to me as a child.
She taught me that those
who dare to teach should
never cease to learn."
Bill Eschenbrenner, the
PGA Golf Professional of the
Year and RogerWarren,
outgoing PGA president,
concluded the ceremony.
Warren spoke of what an
honor it had been to the
34th president of the PGA f
America.
Eschenbrenner summed
up the award perfectly. "This
award is special because it
represents someone from

regular season.
On Jan. 10, Hearing,
playing in only his second
game, helped lead his
team to a convincing
home victory over Fort
Pierce Central, 68-49.
"Everyone just wel-
comed me back like I had
never left," Hearing said.
"So I just got back on the
court and tried to do what
I could to help the team
win."
With Hearing back run-
ning the point for the
Jaguars, his teammates
were able to get back to
normal. Senior Larry
Sanders had 22 points for
the Jaguars, and junior
Octavious Raymond
added another 14. The big
man tag-team combined
for more than 30 rebounds
on the night.
Forward/guard Mario
Santelous, who ran the
show in Hearing's absence
for most of the year, added
11 points for Port St. Lucie,
working off screens and
defenders to get open
shots.
"It's way better (with

more passes and rotates
the ball better. He's got
good vision," said San-
telous. "It was kinda hard
to do my thing while I was
running point. So by him
getting me involved on the
wing, I can square up or go
to the hole and do what I
do. I wasn't uncomfort-
able, but he just runs it
better than I do."
With Sanders and Ray-
mond controlling the
boards, Hearing and San-
telous were able to pres-
sure the Cobras backcourt
constantly. The full court
press paid off for the
Jaguars, as they caused
Central to make forced


decisions and sloppy cross
court passes with regulari-
ty, often leading to easy
points for the Jags.
"We're starting to under-
stand (how to play as a
team). We're starting to
work out the kinks," said
Rodriguez. "I think were
gonna be all right down
the stretch."
Port St. Lucie (11-5)
hopes to capitalize off the
recent momentum of a big
win like this heading into
district play next week.
Tonight, the Jags travel
to Sebastian River for a
crucial district 13-5A
match up. Game time is 7
