Mascara: County needs to


look at future jail expansion


BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE The
city council held its win-
ter working retreat last
week and is considering
layoffs to help cover an
anticipated shortfall in
the budget due to the
slumping real estate
market.
Revenue from fees the
city charges has fallen,
resulting in less funds
for the 2006-2007 budget
year. Among the funds
drying up are building
permits, impact and
zoning fees.
"Costs are too high in
the existing budget, and
we need to change it,"
said David Pollard,
director of the manage-
ment and budget
department. "We are
four months into the
budget year, and the
information we had for
last year's budget projec-
tions no longer accurate.
We need to make budget
adjustments."
Those budget adjust-
ments could lead to the
elimination of 20 posi-
tions, mostly in the
building department,
where the biggest slow-
down has, occurred.
The number of permits
for single-family homes
has dropped sharply in
the last year. During the
2004-2005 fiscal year,
there were more than
7,000 single-family
home permits issued,
while there were only
around 4,000 issued last
year. Mr. Pollard said he
anticipates only 3,000
permits to be issued this
year.
While residential per-
mits have been down,
commercial permits are
up, Mr. Pollard said.
Projects could also
suffer, since parks and
road improvements are
typically funded through
impact fees collected,


Mr. Pollard said.
City manager Don
Cooper said city staff
should count on a 20
percent reduction in
growth revenue during
the next 24 months.
"The next two budget
years' policies become
very important for us to
stay financially viable,"
Mr. Cooper said. "The
council needs to give
direction on various
buildings and projects.
Quite frankly, I don't
know how .we will
finance or fund any of
them. We need some sort
of list of priorities, if we
are going to construct
these buildings and in
what order, if we want to
construct them."
One project is the civic
center in the new down-
town area. The budget
for construction of the
building is $25 million,
and Mr. Cooper said it
could cost as much as $2
million annually to
operate.
Councilman Jack Kelly,
who supports the idea of
the civic center,
expressed concern about
operation costs.
"This, is a very sizable
project," Mr. Cooper
said. "It is something
we've never seen here
before. I don't think we
have any idea as to what
the demand will be. We
have to guess, but we
won't actually know until
it opens."
Construction is antici-
pated to begin in August
and to be completed in
November 2008.
The council will study
city projects and the
budget before the sum-
mer retreat in July, where
it is anticipated they will
make some decisions as
to what to do for the
future of Port St. Lucie.
"We need to ensure
that the next few years
are good years for the
city," Mr. Cooper said.


BY MATT DONEGAN
Staff writer
A law and policy planner
who recently conducted a
space needs study for St.
Lucie County found that
future jail expansion and
staffing costs would eat up
most of the county's facility
budget and available land
over the next 20 years.
"If the sheriff's office
keeps building the way-they
are without management
of that system, the county's
square footage will be jail
space, and there will be no
money to build anything
else," said Alan Kalmanoff,
of the nonprofit Berkely,
Calif.,- based Institute for
Law and Policy Planning.


In a 2004 study, Mr.
Kalmanoff found that the
St. Lucie County Jail doesn't
need any more space, argu-
ing that the crowding is
being caused by "unconsti-
tutional delays and flaws in
representation by public
defender Diamond Litty,"
especially with, pre-trial
detainees and minor
offenders. ,
"The public defender
doesn't represent any of
these misdemeanors until
three or four weeks after the
offense," ,Mr. Kalmanoff
said. "It's a little game going
on; squeeze the guy for
three or four weeks and
he'll plead guilty just to get
out of jail."
And it's the taxpayers who


are punished, he said.
"The minor offenders
come out very uncorrect-
ed," Mr. Kalmanoff said.
"They're booked in the jail
for a minor offense and slip
out'30 days later on a plea
just to see if their job is still
there. They're not going to
get rehabilitated that way. I
think the St. Lucie County
public would prefer seeing
them on work crews rather
than having them sit in
front of a TV at the St. Lucie
County Jail on their dime."
Mr. Kalmanoff has been
openly critical of Sheriff
Ken Mascara and public
defender Litty, who dis-
agree with many of his find-

PORT ST. LUCIE A
local career college has
expanded its curriculum,
all to benefit students.
Keiser College is now
Keiser University, an
accreditation change
that will allow the school
to offer master's degrees
to those looking to
further their education.
"This enhances our
abilities to offer higher
degrees," said Barbara
Loven, president of the
Port St. Lucie campus.
"We now have the foun-


dation to offer graduate
level courses."
The first master's
degree program Keiser
University will offer is in
business. It will be
available at the Port St.
Lucie campus in 2008.
Having the university
distinction also allows
Keiser to hire instructors
with PhDs, Mrs. Loven
said, which rounds out
the education students
receive.
"Our instructors have
the experience, as well as
the credentials," she said.

Public invited to Sheriff's Office


Keiser
From page Al


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS,

St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken J. Mascara
has extended an invitation to the public
to sign up for the Sheriff's Citizens Acade-
my.
"This is the public's opportunity to learn
what their Sheriff's Office does, from
courthouse security and operating the
county jail to firearms training and driv-
ing a patrol car," said Sheriff Mascara.
The classes will be from Feb. 28 through


April 25, and students are encouraged to
sign up now.
Classes will take place Wednesday
nights, except for two Saturday classes,
one at the Sheriff's gun range, and the
other at the vehicle training "skid pad."
Classes also include a four-hour ride-
along with a patrol deputy.
There is a one-time fee of $2 and partici-
pants must make a reservation by calling
class coordinator Linda Smeykal at the
Sheriff's Office, (772) 462-3604.


official Dec. 1 for the
30-year-old private
university dedicated to
career development.
Keiser University
started in Fort Laud-
erdale in 1977 by Dr.
Arthur Keiser. The
school has 13 campuses
throughout Florida,
with the Port St. Lucie
campus opening in

1998. The school is
accredited by the
Southern Association of
Colleges and University,
and gives students an
opportunity to earn
associate's and bache-
lor's degrees.
There are 330 stu-
dents at the local
campus, studying for
careers in fields such as
massage therapy,
surgical technology and
criminal justice. The
private university has a
93 percent job place-
ment in students'
degree fields.
Each campus offers
courses tailored to job
availability in the
community, said Belin-
da Keiser, vice chancel-
lor of community
relations and student
advancement.
"We have made it our
focus and mission to
look at a community's
needs," Mrs. Keiser
said.
With the biotechnolo-
gy industry coming to
St. Lucie County, future
programs at the Port St.
Lucie campus will focus
on career training in
that field, Mrs. Keiser
said.
.To help residents find
success in their profes-
sional lives, Keiser
University is offering
two scholarships at the
associate's degree level
at the Port St. Lucie
campus, and two
scholarships at the
bachelor's level at two
of the South Florida
campuses. The scholar-
ships cover two years of
study at Keiser Univer-
sity. Applications will be
accepted until June,
with winners being


awarded in the fall, Mrs.
Keiser said.
"Part of our mission is
to give back to the
community," Mrs.
Keiser said. "Our suc-
cess has a lot to do with
student success. With
this, we have the ability
to give students the
tools for success."
Keiser University has,
a smaller student
population than a
traditional state-run
university. It also
features class schedules
which are convenient
for students, who may
not be a traditional
college student.
"It's a great school,"
said Christopher Flood,
31, a computer network :,
and security manage-
ment student. "I've
been very impressed
with what I've been
taught here. It's a great
environment. Com-
pared with other
schools, with thousands
of students, here I get
more personal atten-
tion."
Surgical technology
student Cathryn Heise,
38, likes the location of
the campus and the
degree offered. She feels
she is getting an educa-
tion that is preparing
her for working in her
field.
"The instruction is
wonderful," Mrs. Heise
said. "They make sure
you understand the
material and that you
succeed."

Surprised teacher of the year finalists selected


BY M t I'T DONEGAN

This ',r.ir's St. Lucie
County School District
teacher of the year final-
ists are from diff>.'n.ii
states, teach lHril,-in
grades at .liff _i.I.-'ii.
schools and base their
instruction on l-ilI.,2',iii
learning pin i.iin.
But I li.';aIwri Ann I.i .li
er, Anna LaDean P'lhiliiti,.
and Elizabeth Erin Pruitt
share a common gv, al and
a passion for what they
do.
All three were surprised
Jan. 30 with the
announcement that a
committee of principals,
administrators and for-
mer teachers of the year
selected them as the
tinimhii., for the award.
Here's more about them:
Ms. Fisher has been a
first-grade teacher at
Lawnwood Fhiiiciitena'y
School for seven years
and is the grade's team
leader. After attending a
conference in Santa' Fe,
N.M., over the summer,
the Toms River, N.J.,
native also became the
trainer for all of the
school's teachers in
cooperative group learn-
ing techniques developed
by Dr. Spencer Kagan.
She has seen results by
using Dr. Kagan's meth-
ods on her students.
"I think it allows them
to be more independent
and work among them-
selves," she said. "It
brings out their own
learning styles. There's a
lot of problem solving.
It's amazing."
In her busy 2006, Ms.
Fisher also wrote a grant
that brought 5,000 books,
to Lawnwood class-
rooms, and was even an


Elizabeth Ann Fisher


award-winning coach on
her step-sons's soccer
team.
Like Ms. Fisher's stu-
dents, l1iidergaitenier-s in
Mrs. Phillips' class at Oak
Hammock K-8 School
have thrived on inventive
learning programs. While
Ms. Fisher swears by Mr.
Kgaii,. Mrs. Phillips aims
to WOW with lessons
from the Working On the
Work program, as well as
the Natiotial Literacy
Coalition reading pro-
gram, both of which she
said have "boosted" her
teaching ability.
"It causes the children
to become highly
engaged," she said. "They
become in charge of their
own learning. There per-
formance and engage-
ment is exciting. 'They
want to come to school,
and they're upset when
they have to miss
school."
Mrs. Phillips has only
been at Oak Hammock
for two years, but previ-
ously taught kinder-
garten at Rivers Edge Ele-
mentary School, as well
as in Tennessee. In addi-
tion, the Greenville, S.C.,
native homeschooled her
own children for five
years. Three of her four


Anna LaDean Phillips

daughters attend Oak
Hammock. Iu- prefers
teaching very (,iiiip, chil-
dren the most.
"You have the opportu-
nity to set a good founda-
tion to for their school
career," she'said. "I learn
a lot from them as well.
You learn all kinds of life
lessons from kinder-
garteners."
When she's not in
school, Mrs. Phillips still
teaches, but in Oleander
Avenue Church of God fn
Fort Pierce, where her
husband is a pastor.
The newest teacher
among the three finalists,
Ms. Pruitt, is an up-and-
comer in the district.
After graduating from
the University of
Delaware in 2003, the
Baltimore native moved
to St. Lucie and became a
third-grade teacher at
Fairlawn Elementary
School, where, in 2004,
she was named the
school's outstanding
first-year teacher. Last
year, she was named Fair-
lawn's teacher of the year.
"Teaching is my joy,"
she said. "My students
have fulfilled my life.
Everything I do revolves
around them."
The third-grade team


Elizabeth Erin Pruit


leader, she is also the
staff technology gui u.
Her classroom is
equipped with top-of-
the-line electronics hili
she says make teaching;.
easy.
"It allows the kids to be
hands on," said Ms.
Pruitt, who frequently
teaches using PowerPoint
presentations.
While all teachers in the
district are tasked with
preparing students for
the Florida Comprehen-
sive' Assessment Test, it's
especially critical for Ms.
Pruitt, as third-graders
are required to do well on
the FCAT to move on.
While teachers often have
concerns that all instruc-
tion teach must be geared
toward the FCAT, Ms.
Pruitt said she doesn't
mind the test, especially
because it puts emphasis
on reading and math.
"It's something that
helps me monitor the
success of my kids," she
said, adding that frequent
revisions to the test are
positive as the state con-
tinues upping the bar in
education.
The winner of teacher of
the year honors will be
announced Saturday, Feb.
24.

Platinum
The platinum group met-
als comprise six closely
related metals: Platinum,
Palladium, Rhodium,
Ruthenium, Iridium and
Osmium.
Platinum (symbol PI) was
accepted as a precious
metal only after the sec-
ond half of 19th century
and has a deep luster and
a rich, white color. It is rarer
and heavier than all pre-
cious metals and consid-
ered to be more valuable
than gold,
Platinum is often used to
set the most valuable
gems to produce the
finest jewelry.
Platinum holds gem-
stones most securely,
because its strength and
neutral color enhances
the brilliance and depth
of diamonds and precious
stones. Because of its den-
sity and weight, you can
feel the difference
between platinum and
other precious rretals'.
There are no karat marks
to identify platinum,
In the United States plat-
inum is usually marked: PT
or PLAT. In Europe, plat-
inum is identified by the
following marks: 950 or
PT950. Since platinum is
the purest metal it rarely
causes an allergic reac-
tion. There is an increased
interest in platinum jewelry
both in the US and
abroad.

VIEWPOINT

Got something to say?

Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at

(866) 465-5504
or e-mail news@hometownnewsol.com.
Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous
statements. Statements of fact will be checked for
accuracy.

Neighborhood looks like a parking lot

I would like to complain about Import and Flamin-
go roads being the biggest parking lots around. These
private owners not only have the biggest campers,
two and three in the driveway, which I don't believe
are registered in the homeowner's name, there are
boats, SUVs and trucks, which are never moved and
remain there continuously. This is not at just one, but
many different homes. They really have made this
neighborhood look terrible.

Vote once before you rant

I just read, "Vote before you rant."
Let me tell the ranter that I know many northerners
who voted, absentee ballot of course, and they
laughed at us with the election of President Bush over
(Al) Gore. While we are talking about it, they voted
absentee ballot up north and here, in Florida.
I also went to the Election Commission and said
something to the commissioner of elections and was
brushed off. They don't have the time or personnel to
verify that these people's voting rights have been can-
celled up north when they take out absentee ballots
or register to vote down here. So, these people are
voting in two places.

Sign your credit cards
Regarding the age-old issue of not signing the back
of your credit and/or debit card and instead writing
"See ID".
Well, I did just that and what the person who stole
my credit and debit card did was make up a fake ID
with her picture, my name, and her signature using
my name.
When thisi criminal was caught and- brought to
court, I was responsible for all purchases that she
charged because the clerks at the stores did their job,
which I had directed they do, by looking at the signa-
ture and picture on the (unknown to me, fake)' ID.
They compared it to the signature on the receipt of
the person in front of them.
When I questioned this.to the judge and said that I
thought the cardholder was responsible only for the
first $50 spent, I was told that was not valid in my
case because I did not sign the card with my very own
hands, in my very own signature.
In other words, I did not do what the actual owner
of the credit card, the credit card company, mandat-
ed me to do.
People, we do not own our credit cards. These credit
card companies are kind enough to extend credit to
us and it is our. obligation to fulfill their administra-
tions. We cannot presume to be smarter than they are
and simply make up our own rules, as we feel fit. The
back of the card states in plain English "Authorized,
signature. Card not valid unless signed."
Not valid!!! What part. of those words do you not
understand? It's not written in Chinese. 'It's written in
plain English.
This is the case even if your picture and signature is
pre-printed on the front. The clerk is not a detective.
If you leave the back of your credit card blank, the
thief signs the back and the clerk compares that sig-
nature with the one on the receipt, they are doing
what their employer is paying them to do. They are
also doing exactly what the credit card companies
want done, which is to compare the signature on the
back of the credit card to the signature on the receipt.

Which way are you going?

Automobile manufacturers spent several million
dollars developing turn signals, yet more than 50 per-
cent of Florida drivers never use them, especially in
roundabouts or to change lanes. The only time I ever
see a turn signal on. is when an old man is in the left
lane, going 25 MPH with his signal on and no inten-
tion of turning.

Take charge of your mailbox
As the spouse of a mail carrier, I am tired of the way

they are perceived, and the way that they are treat-
ed.
Here are some rules that everyone out there
should live by concerning their mail:
*Never leave money in your mailbox. Period. You
own and control your mailbox, so if you insist on
leaving money there, know that any passerby could
conceivably peakin and take it. There is no guaran-
tee that the money will be there for your mail carri-
er..
*If you insist on leaving money in your mailbox,
call the post office and find out the exact amount
needed for what you want, and leave only the exact
amount. Your carrier does not have a bank in the
truck, nor a complete selection of all stamps offered
by the U.S. Mail.
*If you leave a note for your mail carrier, type it or
print in large bold legible letters. Admit it, even your
spouse and children can't read your penmanship!
*Fix your mailbox! Contact your local mail office,
and find out regulations concerning the height
requirements, as well as distance from the edge of
the road requirements. Adjust your box accordingly.
If your box is tilted, wobbly, the door is either per-
manently open or closed, or in other states of disre-
pair, fix it! You know your box is in need of a repair
job, don't wait until it finally keels over, or falls apart
and then blame your mail carrier!
*All drivers, especially of trucks and vans, if you
hit a mailbox own up to it! Mailboxes, in general are
not high tech, and can be repaired for a nominal fee'
if you hit it backing up, so "fess up and pay up".
*Owners of mailboxes, don't automatically blame,
the mail carrier if your box was hit. There are a lot of
trucks, trash, landscape, etc., as well as SUVS and
vans that could have hit it. If more people followed
the suggestion above, then the poor mail carrier, out
delivering the mail, would not-be blamed for other
people's "sins."
*Don't call the post office when your mail is late,
or you don't get mail one day. There are literally.bil-
lions of pieces of mail sorted and delivered daily. If
you have mail, it will be delivered. Have a little
patience and be glad on those days that you don't
have junk mail.
*Take your named off junk mail, catalogs, etc., that
you don't need. Not only-can you save the environ-
ment, but all of that unwanted mail is clogging up
the mail system.
*If you are mailing important mail, something
that is valuable or can't be lost, don't leave it in a
mailbox. Tak, the time to go to the post office and
send it certified and/or insured. Ask a neighbor for a
ride, take a cab, or the local bus if you don't have a
car. If it is that important, you need to take respon-
sibility for mailing it correctly!
*' If you don't like the mail system, get a P.O. box,
or use e-mail. Mail is delivered six days a week.
Many of the carriers use their own cars. Some carri-
ers can work six different routes in a given week.
Carriers do not get paid hourly. If a route "pays five
hours" and it takes them 12 hours to complete it,
they get paid for five hours. Carriers sort the mail,
and then deliver it. The mail is not handed to them
in deliverable order. Have some patience and
understanding out there
You should be thankful that you receive your mail
instead of constantly finding something to com-
plain about it.


Letters

The winners are ultimately the banks

I have a few comments to add to the Friday, Jan.
26, Port St. Lucie real estate taxes letter.
Quite a few people celebrated higher-than-aver-
age home value increases by selling their home to
use the realized gain, by investing in real estate to
"flip," or pulling out an equity loan.
While high increases in values helped these types
of transactions in the short run, ih the end, all of
our tax and insurance bills are significantly higher,
While many are quick to point the finger at the
taxing authority or insurance company, I dislike
paying .those bills as much as anyone, I would say
the root of the problem lies with the huge increase
in home values.
Property' taxes,'and' home insurance take into
account increased homes values. I
While the winners will always be the banks, (they
get more "juice" with those larger loans), and real
estate agents, (6 percent means a lot more at these
higher prices), the home owner should remember
the bigger picture of home values.
An increase in carrying costs, taxes and insurance,
is not a fair trade-off to having your home "worth'!
more. After all, if you ever want to trade up or down
you will be paying similar gains to another which
renders your gain a wash, and possibly even costing
you more, because of the overall higher carrying
costs.

High school kids build a house


'Education goes
beyond the four
walls of the
classroom'
BY ROBIN RINKE
StaffWriter
Fort Pierce A chance
meeting at a local store
brought a school, a busi-
ness and an organization
together to build a house
for a family in Fort Pierce.
"It all started when I saw
my friend Domenick Scot-
to, a John Carroll Catholic
High School religion
instructor, at the St. Lucie
Battery, and Tire store on
Orange Avenue in Fort
Pierce," said Al Rivett, exec-
utive director of St. Lucie
Habitat for Humanity.
He said they were catch-
ing up on each other's lives
when Mr. Scotto asked if it
would be possible for John
Carroll students to help
build a Habitat House as a
school project.
"It sounded like a great
idea, and would be the first
time a school helped build a
house with .our organiza-
tion. The possibility of hav-
ing the students help build
was exciting," Mr. Rivett
said.
Mr. Scotto, the JCHS reli-
gion teacher said, "Last year
at a JCHS retreat, the jun-
iors suggested that we find a
service project for 2007 that
would promote unity with-
in the school in a non-aca-
demic setting. They wanted
a different kind of commu-
nity service project.
"When I ran into Mr. Riv-
ett from Habitat in the car
store, I thought 'this is too
strange,' cause it really
clicked with what the stu-
dents wanted."
Mr. Scotto took the next
step and brought the serv-
ice project idea to Father


Thomas Barrett, president
of the school and to Ben
Hopper, principal.
Mr. Scotto also needed to
find a sponsor for the proj-
ect. That's when he went to
Joey Miller, owner of St.
Lucie Battery and Tire (the
store in which he and Mr.
Rivett first met) and asked
him to be the financial
sponsor of the whole proj-
ect.
Mr. Miller said yes and the
project went forward from
there.
"I did not know that Mr.
Scotto and Mr. Rivett came
up with this idea in my
store," Mr. Miller said.
"I think it's funny that we
ended up being the spon-
sor. I see it as a three-way
deal with Habitat, the
school and our company.
It's just a win, win, win,"
said Mr. Miller.
Mr. Miller said he hopes to
build one house a year with
the school.
On Wednesday Jan. 31,
behind the track field on the
campus of John Carroll
Catholic High School in
Fort Pierce, the exterior and
interior walls of the Habitat
for Humanity house were
built.
Wearing smiles, safety
goggles and hard hats the
high school senior and jun-
ior classes, along with adult
supervisors and faculty
began the biggest commu-
nity service project the
school has taken on yet.
Working in the breezy, 70
degree weather was perfect
for Brynn Carlson a JCHS
junior, and resident of Stu-
art.
"I have worked on house
projects before during sum-
mer mission trips. But this
is really great because the
whole school is involved. It
gives everyone the oppor-
tunity to feel like they are
helping in some way. Every-
one is excited to be helping
a family, and it's fun to be

tat for Humanity build behind the school last Thursday.


outside and not in school,"
Brynn said.'
Principal Hopper added,
"Sometimes education
must go beyond the four
walls of the classroom.
Teaching students to. serve
their community and give
of themselves is a huge part
of their training here at the
school."
Richard Schlitt, a Vero
Beach businessman, organ-
ized the adult supervisors,
which was a critical compo-
nent with such an endeavor
with youth. One supervisor
was assigned to each of the
twelve groups of student to
give guidance and direc-
tion.
Habitat then transported
the wall panels to the prop-
erty at 4012 Avenue I in Fort
Pierce.
Sophomore and fresh-


men classes will also have
opportunity to participate
in the project by spending a
day at the construction site.
For JCHS, the project is
in line with their mission
to help form Christ-like
character in their stu-
dents by teaching them to
serve.
"It is definitely putting
our faith in action. Jesus
told us to take care of the
poor. This project has
turned out to be a real
teaching tool for the fac-
ulty as well. This hands-
on experience is teaching
students about servant
hood, teamwork and
what the church is all
about," Mr. Scotto said.

Habitat for Humanity, call

Longtime pals offer taste of N.Y.


BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE Three
childhood friends have
brought a piece of NewYork
to the Treasure Coast.
Bagel Brothers of New
York opened in December,
offering residents more
than just homemade New
York bagels.
The three owners, Jason
Dippolito, 33, Joseph Carfi-


no and Sean Miller, both 34,
have known each other
since sixth grade, working
together at Mr. Carfino's
father's bagel shop on Long
Island. A little more than a
year ago, the men decided
to bring a taste of Long
Island to Port St. Lucie.
"The growth in Port St.
Lucie is what brought us to
Tradition," Mr. Dippolito
said. "We have all been
coming down here our


entire lives and we don't
think what we offer is done
anywhere else."
In addition to selling 22
different flavors of bagels,
made on-site daily, and a
variety of homemade
cream cheese spreads,
Bagel Brothers of New York
offers a full menu of break-
fast items, deli sandwiches,
wraps and hot foods, such

ings and opinions.
First, they both cite a grow-
ing community as the rea-
son for the boom at the jail,
and as the basis for the need
for an expansion in the
future. The jail held an all-
time high average of 1,346
prisoners in 2006, up from
1,192 in 2005. The number
of incarcerated reached a
2007 high of 1,434 on Jan. 23
before dipping back below
1,400 during the final week
of the month. There are
1,375 permanent beds at the
facility.
"There's a definite correla-
tion between the general
population and the rising
jail population," the sheriff
said. "My opinion is that the
county needs to be talking
right now about future jail
expansion down the road
within three to five years."
In addition, both Sheriff
Mascara and Mrs. Litty say
they're pushing people
through the system as fast as
possible using a number of
programs implemented in
recent years.
For example, the jail has


had a resident assistant pub-
lic defender for the past 2
1/2 years.
"This has saved the tax-
payers literally millions of
dollars," Mrs. Litty said. "The
assistant public defender
takes care of cases that can
be disposed of quickly dis-
orderly intoxications, petty
theft minor offenders that
don't need to languish in the
jail. They also deal immedi-
ately with mental health and
medical issues."
The county also started a
mental health court in June
2006. The court is aimed at
keeping minor offenders
with mental health issues
out of jail pending their par-
ticipation in treatment pro-
grams. So far, about 160 peo-
ple have been diverted from
jail because iof the program,
Sheriff Mascara said.
Last year also saw the
implementation of an elec-
tronic monitoring program,
which Sheriff Mascara said
has kept roughly 150 people
out of jail.
Even with these programs,
as well as others, the jail still


faces overcrowding.
"You can have 500 pro-
grams to help alleviate jail
overcrowding, but they don't
keep up with the population
explosion we've experi-
enced," Mrs. Litty said. "We
have to keep doing every-
thing we can to help the sit-
uation; start new programs,
cooperate together like we
always have. But you can't
overlook pure population
numbers."
When the jail population
reached its record high last
month, about 300 inmates,
or 20 percent of the total jail
population, consisted of
.pretrial detainees or misde-
meanor offenders, Sheriff
Mascara said. About half of
them had already been sen-
tenced to jail.
"If they have failed io abide
by laws in the past and
ended up back in jail, than
that's where they need to
be," he said.
Said Mrs. Litty, "Mr.
Kalmanoff suggests we
should turn everyone loose
on the streets of our county. I
don't think anyone wants
that."

Nursing students receive money,


jobs through hospital scholarship


By KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE Three
Treasure Coast hospitals
have helped two nursing
students pay for their edu-
cation.
Jenny Woehr and Will
Pruitt were the first nursing
students to receive schol-
arships from .the HCA
Cares Treasure Coast Hos-
pitals Scholarship pro-
gram. They received their
scholarships during a
luncheon on Tuesday, Jan.
30, at St. Lucie Medical
Center in Port St. Lucie.
The program was set up
by St. Lucie Medical Cen-
ter, Lawnwood Regional
Regional Medical Center &
Heart Institute in Fort
Pierce and Raulerson Hos-
pital in Okeechobee to help
address a nursing shortage.
The three hospitals are
owned by HCA Health Ser-
vices of Florida, a for-profit
company that owns and
manages hospitals
throughout the state.
The scholarship will
cover two years of nursing
school at Florida Atlantic
University's Port St. Lucie
campus, in exchange for a
two-year work commit-
ment at one of the three
hospitals.

for the nursing bachelor's
degree. In exchange, recip-
ients commit to working
two years at one of the
three hospitals.
Ms. Woehr and Mr. Pruitt
both selected St. Lucie
Medical Center for their
employment commitment.
"I'm really excited to work
at St. Lucie Medical Cen-
ter," Mr. Pruitt said. "I feel
real comfortable here.
They have a team-focused
environment. Overall, I
think it is a good place to
practice. They give a lot of
support to graduates and
new nurses."
Mr. Pruitt, 25, who lives in
Port St. Lucie, has a differ-
ent situation from most
scholarship recipients. He
has already graduated from
FAU's nursing school.
"This will help pay off
student loans and help
with graduate school," Mr.
Pruitt said.
Ms. Woehr, 23, who lives in
Fort Pierce, said her scholar-
ship makes her dream of
becoming a nurse a reality.
She has two young children,
and works at a nursing
home on the weekends.
Ms. Woehr decided to
become a nurse after
watching her mom battle
lung cancer. She is just
starting her education.
"I'm excited and nervous
about school," Ms. Woehr
said. "This will really help
out."
Officials with FAU are
pleased with the partner-
ship with the HCA hospitals.
"It's a great opportunity
for students, but more
importantly it's very
important to the state,"
said Annie Boehning,
director of development
for FAU's Treasure Coast
campus. "There is such a
shortage of nurses, that
this allows someone to go
to school who might stop
after two years. This open
doors for a group of people
who might not otherwise
have the opportunity to
secure a bachelor's
degree."

Oral medications such as Viagra,

restoring erections for 65% of the 20
million American men who are affected
by erectile dysfunction (ED). However,

TRAVEL



Important tip instructions to help you enjoy your vacation


T ipping has become a
reality in today's travel,
whether you are
traveling on "land only"
packages, i.e. hotel stays, by
motorcoach or cruising. It is
an integral part of your trip
cost and must be accounted
for during the planning
stage of budgeting for your
holiday vac;:' .ion.
Sometim s it is the littlest
details that confuse us most
when we are on vacation.
When it comes to tipping, I
for one, sometimes scratch
my head wondering just
how much to give someone
for a service provided
without offending them
with too little, or offending
myself by giving too much.
Who should you tip? How
much? Do you need to tip at
all? Well, have no fear, these


few simple guidelines may
help you on when and how
much to tip while on
vacation and at other times.
This way, you will not be
bothered by trivialities and
can focus instead on more
important things, like
enjoying your vacation.
Airports Pnd
itra stations
When arriving at airports
and train stations or when
leaving from the airport or
train station, you can feel
comfortable in tipping the
standard porter rate of$1
per bag; perhaps more if
your luggage is very heavy
If you request assistance
in hailing a taxi, a tip of $1 is
appropriate. This includes
doormen at your hotel. If
more services are requested,

to $10 for such feats.
You may certainly choose
to be more generous if the
feat or service performed
was extraordinary. Some-
times it may be appropriate
to tip at the time of service,
but sometimes it also may
be appropriate and conven-
ient to do so at the end of
the trip. '
When requesting room
service, add 15 percent of
the bill, but pay careful
attention to the bill to make
certain that a gratuity (often
more than 15 percent) is not
already factored into the
price. If such a gratuity is
already included, you may,
as a token gesture, add $1 or
$2 to the bill; however, this is
not required.
If you requested some-
thing delivered to your
room, such as a hairdryer or
iron, tip $1 per item
received.
Typically, the maid
deserves a $1-$2 tip each
day, as well. Finally, if you
are a frequent visitor to a
specific location or activity,
a.$20 tip added to your bill
may serve to ensure good
service on future visits and
throughout your stay.
Tours
On a tour, if a tip is not
automatically included, you
maybe comfortable in
tipping the tour guide $1 for
a half-day tour, $2 for full-
day tour and anywhere from
$5-$10 for a weeklong tour.
On a private tour, you
should consider tipping a
private guide more and
consider all of the little
things that were provided or
offered that made your tour
more enjoyable or informa-
tive.
Cruises

On many cruise lines tips
can be pre-paid according
to a fixed schedule of
tipping designed by the
cruise line. If this option is
not chosen, when on a
cruise, tip according to your
comfort level and only on
the last evening of your
cruise.
As a general rule, dining
room waiters receive $3.50
per person/per day, whereas
the dining room busboy
should receive $2 per
person/per day. The room
steward, for all his efforts,
receives $3.50 per
person/per day. Other
personnel, such as bar
waiters, bellboys and deck
stewards may be tipped as
service is rendered.
Restaurants
Generally, excellent
service will be rewarded by a
generous tip that ranges
around 20 percent of the
total bill.
However, most restau-
rants in the United States
accept 15 percent as the
standard tip. Unfortunately,
this level tip is expected
even when less than the
expected level and quality of
service is provided.


In restaurants where you
sit at the bar, or where the
waiter plays a small part of
the meal service experience
(cafes or pubs), 10 percent is-
acceptable. The bartenders,
themselves, generally
receive between 15 and 20
percent when you sit at the
bar.
If the food or service is
unsatisfactory, speak to the
manager. Don't walk out
without tipping.Also, pay
attention to lunch and
dinner bills at home and
when traveling abroad, as
some restaurants tack on an-
additional 15 percent
(usually listed on the menu
or check as a "service
charge") and do not expect
tips.
Ever wonder just how
much the suave gentleman
slipped into the hand of the
maitre d' for finding that last
open table?
Well, at fancy restaurants,
a tip between $5 and $10 is
in line with generally
acceptable standards,
certainly more when the
restaurant is full and you
have no reservations. Tip $1
for each coat checked, and
another 50 cents to $1 for
restroom attendants.
As for wine service that
you have requested, opt for
10 percent of the wine bill
and you should be spared
from any raised eyebrows
from an unhappywine
steward.
Tipping has become a
universal activity and is
generally expected by
service providers for each
amenity or service they
render. There are times
when the idea of rewarding
someone for poor service
simply because it is expect-
ed can rub us the wrong
way, and it should.
However, when such a
situation arises, it is best to
leave a moderate tip and
politely inform the estab-
lishment's owner or manag-,
er of the situation that
warranted the less-than-
abundant reward left at your
table. You will actually be
helping the business -
maintain its reputation for
quality by so doing.
I hope that these "tips" for.
tipping, will give you a
general idea of the standard;
tipping rate for different
stops along your journey. -
Armed with these "tips" you,'
should be well prepared to .'
accurately and fairly reward '
those who serve you along
your route.
Of course, you are always
welcome to tip more when
the service is excellent, and
when you do, you are sure to
see the red carpet treatment
all the way, giving you the
satisfaction of a "tip" well
spent and will contribute
towards your happy travels.

cer and after hurricanes
Frances and Jeanne.
She moved to Hatties-
burg, Miss. with her
daughter and son-in-law,
only to find herself in the
path of Hurricane Katri-
na. While her house sus-
tained some damage, the
storm left deeper scars,
and for Christmas she
asked for a plane ticket to
Florida so she could
come home, at least for a
visit.
"All the music, left the
area," Ms. Mariano said.
"It was devastating. I
haven't played any music
in Mississippi. It's real
sad. There are no cities
left and there's nothing
for musicians to do there.
I wanted sing again."
She returned for a visit
of several months, kick-
ing things off with a party
at Sip's, in Port St. Lucie.
"I was so happy to see
everyone," she said. "I
hadn't sung in two years.
I started making phone
calls and booked five or
six gigs with the Vagrantz.
They had gone to other
bands, but they came
back to work with me. We
fell back in like we hadn't
been separated."
Playing with her are sax
player, Gene Oliveri,
"Mean Gene the Sax
Machine;" drummer, Roy
"Maestro" Powers; bass
player, Larry "0" Mayo;
guitar player, Mark Otis;
and drummer, Jeff
LoForte.
Cookie Mariano takes
great pleasure in being
with her band and her
friends because when her

of Cookie Mariano
years ago and metasta-
sized to her lungs and-'
liver, she was not given
much of a chance of sur-
vival. But, she told her
doctor she wasn't giving
up.
"I told him I wasn't going
to die," Ms. Mariano said.
"I was going to live and
make him my hero. My
daughter and friends have
been wonderful. When
you're a survivor and that
close to dying, you think
of things in a whole differ- -,
ent way. God has more
work for me to do, so I
can't die yet."
For now, she's happy to
do some benefits and
perhaps some Bike
Nights in Fort Pierce
before she returns to Mis-
sissippi in March .
"The blues is my beat,"
she said. People around
here are dying for the
blues. I'm back and I'm
bringing the blues back
with me."
Danny Cipriani, owner -4
of Sip's Night Club in Port
St. Lucie, is one person
who's glad to have her.
"She's an icon," he said.

as burgers and buffalo
wings. Special dishes are
offered daily.
For those avoiding carbo-
hydrates, they have a fresh'
salad bar, with plenty of
toppings.
Catering is also available
for parties, meetings and
other functions.
The men worked hard
during the last year, prepar-
ing their store to open on
Dec. 1. They said the Tradi-
tion location will be the
first of many Bagel Brothers
of New York stores in Flori-
da.
"We plan to keep going
with stores in Florida," Mr.
Carfino said. "We started
the franchise and we want
to keep expanding it. One
reason is there is so much
room in Florida to expand.
There is a lot of opportunity
here."
Since the store opened,
the bagels have been flying
off the shelves.


"When the sun came up
that (first) day, we unlocked
the doors and haven't
stopped since," Mr. Carfino
said.
"We did no advertising,
and we got hit with a ton of
business," Mr. Dippolito
added. "People were talking
about us before we even
opened."
It is the good food and
friendly atmosphere that
keeps people returning. If
someone comes to the
door after regular business
hours, the men will let him
in. During normal business-
hours, the owners find
themselves playing cards or
having lunch with patrons.
"Customer service is
something very important
to us," Mr. Dippolito gaid.
"A customer mentality is
what Joseph's (Carfino)
father instilled in us. The
relationships we are build-
ing will last a lifetime."
"We can't pay the bills or


function without cus-
tomers," Mr. Carfino
added.
Customers seem to like
what they see at Bagel
Brothers of New York. The
men said they have many
Tradition residents in the
store daily.
"They love us," Mr. Miller
said. "Our customers say
we have the best bagels in
St. Lucie County. I haven't
had one negative response
yet."
Bagel Brothers of New
York is located at 10350 S. W.
Village Center Drive, Port St.
Lucie, in Tradition.
The store's regular hours
are 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday
through Saturday, and 6
a.m. to, 4 p.m. Sunday.
Hours will be extended dur-
ing special events.

Valentine's Day:
A celebration of love


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well


Valentine

greetings

to my

husband
Sast year I wrote a
Valentine's Day
column to my hus-
band, Roy, who has
Alzheimer's disease. Many
of you were kind enough to
tell me how much that
column touched you.
I'd like to re-run it, with
an update about Roy and
information for you if you
caring for someone with
this terrible illness.
This column is very
personal. It's aValentine to
my husband, Roy Malt-
wood, who I met when I
was 23 and married when I
was 39.
I think he finally decided
I'd grown up all I was going
to. We've been through a
lot together, and he's
responded to each crisis
with a British stiff-upper
lip, forged in wartime
London, a sense of dry
humor and a cup of tea. He
set a standard for caregiv-
ing when I was ill with
breast cancer and several
years of complications that
will be impossible for me
to match, but now I must
try to do it for him.
Roy has Alzheimer's
disease. He was diagnosed
two years ago, a year after
we moved to Florida. Roy,
who had met every chal-
lenge, who loved life as no
one I'd ever met, suddenly
J didn't want to venture out,
didn't want to drive and,
didn't want do any part-
time work to keep busy.
I became frustrated,
wondering what the
problem was. He didn't
seem to remember where
the grocery store was or
the turn-off for our house. I
thought maybe he was

Hello smart shoppers. Here
it is again, a special day
that I'd like to pretend
doesn't exist. For those of you
who don't know, I lost my
valentine on May 27,2004, nine
months after an automobile
accident that changed his life.
Bill was my honey and my
valentine since I was a teenager.
It's almost three years since he
died, yet I can't seem to remove
my wedding rings or at least put
them on my right hand. This
year, I pledge to do so. If you see
me and notice my hand, please
say hello and let me know you
understand.
I am available for talks from
Vero Beach to Hobe Sound. Call
the paper and leave a message at
(772) 465-5656.
This column is for you, so pay
attention. Any advice I give I have
lived, and since I was married for
more than 40 years, I think I'm
sort of an authority on making a
marriage work.
I was always curious about the
real origin ofValentine's Day and
figured you might be, too. I
turned, as usual, to my trusty
World Book Encyclopedia and
found very little is actually known
about the true origin of this
special day.
Different authorities believe
Valentine's Day began in various
ways.
Some trace it to an ancient
Roman festival called Lupercalia;
however, that festival did not
occur on Feb. 14 but on Feb. 15.
There is ambiguous evidence of
two early Christians named
Valentine who were martyred on
Feb. 14 in different parts of Italy.
No one knows for sure if there
was one or two, but the one from
Rome was believed to have been
a priest and was sainted in 350
A.D. There is no conclusive


evidence whether
Valentine was one
or two men and no
conclusive evi-
dence for doubting
the existence of
either man.
Others believe ,,'*". S.
the origin of
Valentine's Day -"'
came from an
English poet of the -
1300s named
Geoffrey Chaucer,
who chose Feb. 14
as Valentine's Day
because the birds chose their
mates on that day
Another story says Valentine
was an early Christian who
befriended many children. When
he was imprisoned for refusing to
worship ancient Roman gods,
children would toss love notes
between the bars of his cell, thus
the possible beginning of
sending cards onValentine's Day.
There is a great deal more written
about this special day and I
encourage you to pick up your
encyclopedia and read about it.
If there is a special person in
your life, celebrate him or her in a
special way. I celebrated my
valentine, my husband, Bill.
Is it easy to make it work for so
many years? Not on your life, but
it is a most worthwhile accom-
plishment.
There are times you love that
special someone to death and
there are times you'd actually like
to put him or her to death.
Just remember to think "we, us
and our," and not "me, my and
mine."
To be loved you must be
lovable; it is not your right. It
must be earned. It doesn't take
long to know what buttons to
push and not to push. Learn
what buttons to push. Talk, talk,


Ilia


talk about feelings, wants, needs,
everything, but not in the heat of
the moment.
Choose your words carefully;
you can never erase them.
Timing is everything, and when
anger or resentment enters the
picture that's not the time to
talk. Never lose respect for the
other, because once respect is
gone, love is soon to follow.
A special candlelight dinner is a
wonderful way to celebrate
Valentine's Day, especially when
eating out is not affordable.
Farm the kids out, if children
are involved, to friends, relatives
etc., if possible and make an easy
special dinner. Use one of my
recipes, toss a steak on the grill,
get take-out, whatever.
Just set the stage and plan to
make the evening special.
Many years ago, my steady
boyfriend and I spent the
evening of my senior prom at the
WaldorfAstoria in NewYork City.
It was a magical evening as we
danced to the big band.
Our dinner that night was
imbedded in my memory and
even at that young age (when I
couldn't cook), I vowed to
someday make it for my hus-

Smart Shopping:
The Guru's
Money-saving
Tips

Rice-a-Roni came out years ago.
We loved it, but one box
wasn't enough for six
and the cost of two boxes
for a side dish was more than
my budget would allow.
I used an envelope of Lipton's
chicken noodle soup using 3 cups
of water, not the 4 recommended.
In a skillet, lightly brown I cup rice
in a little butter (Smart Balance)
then add the soup mix, water and
a teaspoon of parsley flakes.
Cover and cook until water
is absorbed. If more flavor is needed,
add a packet of chicken bouillon.

One 1-ounce square of baking
chocolate has 12-14 grams
of saturated fat. The benefits
bf chocolate are in the powder
not the fat. Use 3-1/2 tbsp. cocoa
powder; it's fat-free
and 1/2 tablespoon (1-1/2 teaspoon)
butter or butter substitute such as
Smart Balance for, 1 square
of chocolate. It's less expensive
and good for you.

TODDLER TEETH
Q: Is it okay to let a baby go to sleep with a bottle?
A: If the bottle contains anything but water, you could be doing your baby a grave
disservice by letting him or her have a steady flow of liquid on baby teeth. You could
be putting them on the road toward Early Childhood Caries (ECC), the name for
the decay that affects baby teeth. The cavities are caused by teeth's prolonged
exposure to sweetened juices. Parents tend to overlook the problem until the teeth
are so painful that they have to be extracted. In a recent study conducted by the
University of Rochester Medical Center on 162 toddlers from inner city families, nearly 40 percent
showed tooth decay attributed to excessive drinking from bottles.
Another important consideration is that children should make their first visit to the dentist within six
months of the eruption of their first tooth. Many, though, don't make that first visit until they are three
to five years old. A first visit can last between 15 and 30 minutes and will include examination of the
child's teeth, bite, gums and jaw alignment. Putting off the first visit does not necessarily mean saving any
money: The sooner problems are detected the cheaper they are to fix.

provide assistance to
caregivers and loved ones
bearing the burden of
dementia.
I try every day to be the

was ill. He has set the bar
so high, but I will contin-
ue to try, reaching out for
help because I know I '
can't do it alone. I cherish

He is my hero as well as

depressed. Maybe the years
of taking care of me had
taken their toll.
Sometimes I got impa-
tient, wondering why he
didn't pay attention. It was
Roy who told his primary
care doctor that he noticed
changes. A neurological
consult and tests gave us
the diagnosis. It was a body
blow.
Two years later, Roy has
stabilized. He takes two
medications, Aricept and
Namenda, and he contin-
ues to do well. His world
has narrowed, as he has
had to give up driving and
knows that he cannot do
things he once did.
A senior design engineer
with Rolls Royce Aerospace
in England, Roy is still able
to problem-solve house-
hold dilemmas that leave
me, the spatially- chal-
lenged one, bewildered.
But we have had to make
accommodations.
I must speak more slowly
and explain what I mean in
concrete terms. I see
flashes of brilliance, but
they are bittersweet,
because they remind me of
what he always has been:
the happiest, wittiest, most

charming man I've ever
known. He still is all that,
but it's a little bit more of a
struggle.
When he makes a joke, I
laugh and cry a little,
because Roy's love of life is
so much a part of him.
Today, three years later,
Roy has just returned from
a three-week trip to
England to visit his chil-
dren and grandchildren.
We were both nervous
about his making the trip
alone, but with careful
planning and a lot of
crossed fingers and hope,
he did just fine.
In fact, he told me that he
thinks the trip, which not
only involved an overseas
flight but a 10-hour bus trip
to the very tip of Cornwall,
would be harder for me.
He's probably right!
We have been helped in
this journey by individuals
and organizations that can
help anyone facing the
challenge ofAlzheimer's as
a patient or caregiver.
The Alzheimer's Associa-
tion Web site is a wonderful
source of information
about the illness, including
information about diagno-
sis, treatment, caregiving,
ongoing research and a
host of other subjects. 1
The organization main-


tains a helpline that
operates 24 hours a day,
seven days a week: (800)
272-3900. The Web site is
www.alz.org.
Locally, the Southeast
Florida chapter of the
Alzheimer's Association is
at 10 SE Central Parkway,
Suite 400, Stuart. The
phone number is (800)
861-7826. Indian River and ,
Brevard County residents
can contact the Association
at (321) 637-1103.
The Alzheimer's Associa-
tion's Project Safe Return is
a nationwide identification
program that provides
assistance when a person
with a memory disorder
becomes lost. r
Assistance is available 24 "
hours a day, seven days a
week. For the $40 enroll-
ment fee, for which "schol-
arships" may be available
for low-income individuals, -
you receive an ID-braceet _
and clothing labels. The
bracelet and labels identify -
the person as memory-
impaired and gives an ID "
number specific to the
patient. They also provide
the toll free number to call
if someone finds your loved
one.
When you report a loved ,;,
one missing, local law
enforcement is alerted. For

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers. -

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".


/ Fellow Florida Car Dealers, if you don't
know me, I should tell you that I don't profess
to be some "holier than thou" car dealer who
was always'perfect for the past 38 years.
When I look at some of my past advertising
and sales tactics, I am not always proud.
But I have evolved as my customers have
evolved. My customers' expectations, level
of education and sophistication are much
higher today. Your customers are no different.
My remarks are made sincerely and with a
positive intent toward you and your custom-
ers. I am not trying to tell you
how to run your business. I "My Cu
am suggesting a change that .
will reward both you and your axfnpcta.
customers.


Virtually every car dealer ofeduca
Sin Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a Sophistic
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500 much hig
to nearly $1,000. This extra
charge is programmed into
your computer. It has been made illegal in
many states including California, but is still
legal in Florida. The reason you charge this
fee is simply to increase the price of the car
and your profit in such a manner that it is not
noticed by your customers. This is just plain
wrong. I used to charge a dealer fee ($495)
and when I stopped charging it a few years
ago it was scary. But I did it because I could
no longer, in good conscience, mislead my
customers. Just because everybody else
was doing the same thing, did not make it
correct.


Now, here is the good news. After eliminat-
ing the dealer fee my profit per car did drop
by about the amount of the dealer fee, but
my customers realized I was now giving them
a fair shake and quoting a complete out-the-
door price with no "surprises". And the word
spread. My volume of car sales began to rise
rapidly. Sure, I was making a few hundred
dollars less per car, but I was selling a lot
more cars. I was and am selling cars to many
of your former customers. My bottom line
has improved, not because I eliminated the
dealer fee, but because I was

able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
or used car. You can do the
same.
Why am I writing thi's letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
I think of myself as the new
"sheriff" that has come to
"clean up South Florida". In
fac~, I am well aware that this
letter is, to some extent, self-


serving. Many people will read this letter and
learn why they should buy a car from me,
and not you. And, I am also aware that most
dealers who read this will either get angry and
ignore it or not have the courage to follow my
lead. But maybe you will be the exception. If
you have any interest in following my lead,
call me anytime. I don't have a secretary and
I don't screen any of my phone calls. I would
love to chat with you about this.
Sincerely,
Earl Stewart- Earl Stewart Toyota

Getting a colonoscopy, buying


a car -- both processes dreaded


If you are older than 55,
you should have had a
colonoscopy. If you
haven't, call your doctor,
because thiscould save
your life.
It did mine, but that's
another story. I had another
colonoscopy yesterday, and
I have to tell you that it's a
very unpleasant experi-
ence, mainly from the
mental anguish anticipa-
tion and the discomfort of
the preparation the previ-
ous day. 4
I had a lot of time to think
about my procedure and I
started thinking about how
this experience parallels
that of buying a car. It's
something you must do
and has a very good benefit,
but you dread the process.
This column, my 39th for
Hometown News, has
consisted mainly of sugges-
tions and inside informa-
tion that can make your
new or used car buying
experience a less a fearful
occasion. If this is the first
column of mine you have
read, you can read all of
them on my blog,
www.EarlStewartOnCars.co
m.
Some of the titles/sub-
jects are "'Always get an out-
the-door price," "Bait and.
switch advertising,"
"Beware of deceptive
Internet car pricing,"
--"Beware of direct mail car
2 advertising," "Buying a car
when you have a credit
problem," "Eight steps to
ensure you are buying the
best car for the best price,"
"List price and MSRP might
not be the same," "Negoti-
ating to buy a car," "Open
letter to Florida car dealers"
(parts one-four, "Shop your
financing and trade,"
"Should I buy my car at the
end of the lease?" "Should I
lease or buy my next car?"
"Should I pay cash or
finance my next car?"


EARL STEWART
On Cars

"Should I trade in my old
car or sell it myself," "Tell
your car dealer to be nice,"
"The right used car is a
better buy than a new car,"
"Translating misleading car
ads," "What is the true cost
of that new car?" "What to
do if you are treated badly
by a car dealer," "When is a
car sale not a car ale?" and
"The Internet price is the
lowest price for a new car."
Almost every one of these
articles originated from my
customers' and others'
experiences when buying
cars from other car dealers.
I get a lot of calls from
people who have never
bought a car from me. They
call to tell me of their bad
experience with another
dealer and, when I get
several calls on the same
subject, I write a column on
it. People often call me
asking for advice or assis-
tance after they have
already bought, which is
"closing the barn door after
the horse is gone."
On more than one
occasion, I have called car
dealers asking them to
consider undoing a wrong
they have caused one of
their customers. I have to
confess that I am "batting
zero" on this effort. I won't
give up, however. I just
made another call this


afternoon on behalf of a
customer whose install-
ment sales contract, signed
by her and the dealership,
had a higher interest rate
than a second contract that
the dealer sent to the
lender. The customer told
me she signed only one
contract, the one she took a
copy of.
One thing that amazes
me about these weekly
columns I have been
writing for almost a year is
that no car dealer has ever
called me to complain or
for any other reason. I have
not been sued either.
I think that says some-
thing about the truth of my
articles. I'm not a lawyer,
but I do know that you can't
successfully sue somebody
for libel or slander if they
write or say the truth.
I know of one car dealer
who threatened to cancel
her advertising in the Palm
Beach Post because she
thought it owned Home-
town News. I am puzzled
why not one single dealer
would call me just out of
curiosity. I don't have a
secretary and I don't screen
any of my calls, nor do any
of my employees.
They do know how
successful my dealership is
and how fast my sales are
growing. They know that I
am selling a lot of their

SEAL Museum acquires


underwater vehicle


BY MATT DONEGAN
Staff writer
In a submarine
beneath the waves of the
Arabian Sea, six Navy
SEALs clad in wetsuits
and scuba gear walk
through a dry deck shel-
ter toward a 22-foot black
tube, their transportation
for the next two hours.
The room is flooded
and they embark in the
lithium battery-operated
SEAL Delivery Vehicle,
leaving their host vessel
miles in the distance as
they navigate the open-
cockpit conveyance in
the depths- of the chilly
water.
They bottom out the
SDV in the enemy harbor
and the frogmen exit,
swimming under a row of
warships, strategically
placing mines on each of
them. Then they get back
in the SDV and ren-
dezvous with the sub.
The ships are sunk with
spectacular explosions,
all without the SEALS
ever so much as putting
one little finger above the
surface of the water.
The SDV gave the
SEALs the range they
needed to accomplish
that mission. The Navy
UDT-SEAL Museum in


Fort Pierce added an SDV
to its collection over the
weekend in hopes of
accomplishing another
mission showing the
public yet another piece
of what the Naval Special
Warfare mission is all
about.
The museum is the
only one in the country
to have a Mark VIII Mod-
0 SDV, said. museum
spokesman Rolf Snyder.
The museum already had
an SDV before the new
arrival, but it's only a
long, black cylindrical
shell of the vehicle.
"It's hard to appreciate
what's going on with the
other one," Mr. Snyder
said. "Now you'll be able
to look inside. It will give
you a greater apprecia-
tion and make you more
cognoscente of the oper-
'ating environment the
SEALs have to work in."
The Mod-0 is still being
used in missions, but the
Navy is in the process of
phasing them out to
make way for the upgrad-
ed Mod-1. Museum exec---
utive director Michael
Howard, a retired captain
and SEAL, jumped on the
opportunity to add one
to the museum's fleet.
This particular SDV is 15
years old and in good
shape.
Captain Howard was
the first officer in charge
of *the west coast SDV


program. Later in his
career, he ran a program
for development of a new
SDV.
The SDV has grown
much more sophisticated
since the program started
in the '70s with the sole
purpose of extending the
range of SEALs, who are
limited in endurance and
"can only go so far with a
set of fins and a dive rig,"
Capt. Howard said.
Today's SDV is
equipped, with sonar, a
Doppler Navigation Sys-
tem and fathometer, bal-
last, breathable air, com-
munications, propulsion
and docking systems.
With all this, learning
how to operate the SDV
takes a lot of training,
Capt. Howard said.
"It's one of the tougher
missions around," he
said. "Driving these
things is kind of like fly-,
ing an airplane."
The SDV is a major
piece for the museum, he
said. Efforts to acquire a
current set-- of SEAL
weapons is also in the
works, as is the prospect
of creating a memorial
for SEALs killed since
Sept. 11, 2001.
The museum is located
at 3300 North AlA on
North Hutchinson Island.

Tips for growing citrus trees at home


A almost everybody likes
the fresh taste of
itrus, whether
oranges, grapefruits or
tangerines.
Sometimes, the sweetest,
most delicious fruit can
come from trees that you
raised yourself in your own
backyard.
Today, I am going to talk
about growing citrus in your
backyard and indoors.
When most people pick
out their favorite oranges or
grapefruit at the grocery
store, usually the first think
they think about is Florida.
This delicious fruit was in
introduced to our wonderful
state in 1565 by Spanish
explorers.
To top it off, the Orange
Blossom is also our state
flower. Most of the fruit that
is produced in out state is
not in South Florida but is in
Central Florida in an area
that we refer to as growing
zone 9. The reason for this is
that in order for the fruit to
get its sugar sweet taste, the
fruit must be subject to a
period of cool temperatures.
While growers welcome cool
weather, freezing tempera-
tures for more than four
hours can cause damage to
the fruit.
There are many varieties
of citrus available, and it is
mainly a selection of your
own personal choice that
should determine which
flavor you should buy.
Look for healthy trees that
have dark green foliage and
no signs of disease or
insects. Once you make your
purchase, it is time to take
your prize home and have
some fun.
Citrus like to be planted in
areas that have good
drainage and a full day of
sun. If the area you have
chosen for planting floods

former customers.
Many of these new
customers tell me how
they told the other dealers
why they chose to take
their business elsewhere.
I believe that before too
much longer, we will see
some changes in the way
other car dealers do
business, even if they refuse
to call me as I have repeat-
edly invited them to do.
Sooner or later they will
understand that treating
your customers with
courtesy and integrity is
just plain good business.

arttoyota.com.


during heavy rain, build up
the ground with some
topsoil to keep the roots as
much above the water as
possible.
When planting your tree,
use good quality topsoil and
be sure you do not plant in
an area that will be affected
by your sprinkler system.
Citrus trees do not like
excess water and this can
also lead to dry fruit. Do not
be tempted to water your
tree too often and also
remember to keep the area
around the tree clear of any
grass or mulch. Any of these
circumstances can cause
potentially lethal fungus
diseases to destroy your tree.
You should also keep weeds
away from the base of your
trees to be sure proper
drainage is established.
Another critical ingredient
for good citrus growth is
fertilizer. Choose a good
quality citrus food that has
minor elements. You also
should apply a minor
element spray that contains
such ingredients as iron,
boron and manganese.
One mistake many citrus
trees owners do is try to
prune their trees. The'truth
is that citrus trees should,
never be pruned. You should
just let the trees shed their
branches naturally. Thun-
derstorm winds and tropical
systems will naturally prune
the tree as it sheds its
branches.
For those of you that have
limited yard space or live in
an apartment, you can
purchase dwarf citrus trees
that you can grow in a sunny
window or on a balcony. You
can purchase these trees in
Florida's Turnpike gift shops,
airport gift shops and at gift
shops in many of our tourist
areas. You can also buy them
online.


Once you bring your plant
home, plant it immediately
so it does not stay in the box
for long. You should initially
plant it in about an 8-inch
diameter pot that has good
drainage. Use a good quality
potting soil such as Miracle
Gro.
Once your tree is well
established in the pot, you
can transplant your tree in a
5- to 25-gallon container.
Remember, the larger the
container you use, the bigger
the plant will get.
Unlike citrus trees planted
in the ground, container
trees will need frequent
watering and occasional
pruning.
When your tree is young, if
you prune a couple of inches
off the top, it will allow the
tree to spread out some
instead of growing tall and
skinny. Do not allow the tree
to sit in ai saucer filled with
water. Be sure to drain the
water from your saucer, if
you use one.
If you have a balcony, you


can put your tree outside to
get much-needed sunlight.
If you keep it indoors,
choose a location near a
sunny window.
The fruit that is produced
from these small trees will
be small and usually is not
as sweet as its larger
counterparts, but is great in
jellies and also for adding
flavor to drinks.

Avoid wipe out when correcting errors


T his week I thought I
would write a
column that will
(hopefully) help someone
avoid one of the pitfalls of
computer ownership.
What I am writing about
this week happens so
frequently (it just makes
me cringe thinking about
it) but it shouldn't happen
at all. Especially consider-
ing that the cause of this
re-occurring problem is
invariably someone who
should know better.
What is, it? What keeps
happening to get me so
riled up?
I'm talking about repeat-
ed instances of people
calling "tech support" for
minor problems, only to
have the tech-support
people (who should know
better) instruct the poor,
unsuspecting computer
owner to format their hard
drive and start from
scratch. That's like getting
a lobotomy for a
headache.
Then, when a user
suddenly realizes all of her
data is now gone (hardly
anyone makes backups,
you know) the guy on the
other end of the phone
casually tells her it's not
his responsibility.
The above scenario does
- happen. A lot. I probably
get two or three calls a
year from people who just
got off the phone with
tech support and are left
holding the pieces of a
once-functional comput-
er, now freshly restored to
it's original.factory specs,
with no idea how to get all
their programs, desktop
and applications back in,
let alone their personal

James J. Urbanczyk

* James J. Urbanczyk, 62,
'of Port St. Lucie, died on
Friday, Jan. 26, 2007, at
Martin Memorial Medical
Center, in Stuart.
Born in Hammond, Ind.,
he had been a resident of
Port St. Lucie, and resided
in Fort Lauderdale for 35
years.
Prior to retirement, he
was employed as an iron-
worker in the construc-
tion industry.
He held the position of
assistant district adminis-
trator for Big League
Baseball, District 10, in
Fort Lauderdale, from


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute this

data.
It's sad (I've seen grown
adults reduced to tears
because of it) but avoid-
able. Let's cover a few
points so you can be
aware when someone who
is supposed to know
better is about to lead you
down the road to ruin.
If you ever get to the
point where you feel you
need to call the computer
manufacturer, remember
the guy on the other end
of the phone is really busy
(he takes calls like yours
all day long, every day, 40
hours a week) and he's
going to want to get your
call over and done with as
quickly as possible. Many
times, he'll want to speed
up the process by telling
you to find your "restore"
or "system restoration"
disk.
When he does, a bell
should go off in your head.
Are you prepared to wipe
out your computer's hard
drive and start from
scratch? Are all of your
data files backed up? (Do
you have copies of all of
your Word, XL, book-
marks, e-mail addresses,


1983-1995.
Survivors include his
wife of 42 years, Georgia
Urbanczyk, of Port St.
Lucie; a son, Michael
Urbanczyk, of Fort Laud-
erdale; a daughter,
Michelle McLain, of Port
St. Lucie; a brother,
Anthony Urbanczyk, of
Schreville, Ind.; two sis-
ters, Janice Urbanczyk, of
Ocean Ridge, and Sharon
Urbanczyk,. of Fort Laud-
erdale; and four grand-
children.
Visitation was held
Wednesday, Jan. 31, with
a service at the Byrd,
Young & Prill Port St.
Lucie Funeral Home.
In lieu of flowers, dona-
tions in memory of James
H. Urbanczyk may be
made to the American
Heart Association, 1100
East Ocean Blvd., Stuart,
FL. 34994.


etc?)
Also, consider the reason
you called tech support in
the first place. Was it for a
relatively minor problem,
such as difficulty connect-
ing to the Internet or
maybe a printer that was
acting up?
If you don't have your
data backed up or the
problem you called about
is a minor one, you may
want to put the brakes on
his proposed repair. Since
computers are so incredi-
bly complex and they
quite literally "grow"
Around their user, they
can end up looking quite
different from when they
first came from the
factory.
I don't know of any tech
support guy who can walk
someorne through wiping
out a system and then
bring it back to the level it
was before the call for
help. Period.
So, what would cause a
user to run the restoration
disk that came with their
system?
Well, critical errors such
as failure of the system to
wake up would be one
reason, but only after all
other avenues of approach
have been exhausted.
I think that suggesting
that a person "restore"
their system because
they're having modem
troubles is just plain

Fabrizio and Massimo: brothers and kickers


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer,
Mid-way through the first
quarter of a game against
the. East Coast Reapers, Fort
Pierce Fire kicker Fabrizio
Scaccia lined up for what
was supposed to be a 55-
yard field goal.
But just before he set the
spot for the kick, Fabrizio
paused, looked up in the
stands, spotted his brother
Massimo and smiled. The
younger brother by two


years, Fabrizio stepped back
just one yard, making the
attempt a 56-yard field goal.
Normally, a kicker would
never want an attempt to be
longer that it had to be, but
this was different. You see,
on top of being brothers,
Fabrizio, who is 22, and
Massimo, who is 24, are also
rival kickers. By making the
56-yard field goal, Fabrizio
knew he would beat, his
older brother's record of 55.
"In the back of my mind, I
was like 'my brother made


55, I need to
make this,'"
Fabrizio
said.,
He nailed
the kick and
pointed to
the stands
in celebra-
tion.

er, the two

Stuart.
The Fire won in dramatic
fashion, 21-20. It looked like
Massimo would get a shot to
win the game for the Pirates,
but an interception ended
that chance. So even though
Massimo hit field goals of 27
and 36 yards in the game,
and Fabrizio's only action
resulted in a botched snap
on an extra point, he still
earned bragging rights.
"I want my team to win,
but if it came down to that
last field goal for him to win
the game and beat my team,
I would hope he make it,"
said Fabrizio. "I would never
wish for him to miss. Never."
The Scaccia brothers were
born to Italian immigrants
in New York, but moved to
Port St. Lucie when the Mas-
simo was 8 and Fabrizio was
6. Growing up in an Italian
family, Massimo and Fab-
rizio were avid soccer play-
ers. It wasn't until Massimo's
junior year at St. Lucie West
Centennial HighSchool that
he even thought about play-
ing football.
Two games into the sea-
son, friends of his on the
football team asked him to
just try to see if he could
make a field goal. The soccer
player didn't know how to
kick a football, but tried it
anyway.
"They said come out and
kick for us, please., So one
day I went out there, I had
on regular shoes and jeans,
and I nailed a 50-yarder. I
didn't know that was good
or anything," Massimo said.
"So I played two games on
junior varsity, went up to
varsity, and was the starter
ever since."
With just a year and a half
of football experience, Mas-
simo was received a schol-
arship to play for Avila Uni-
versity in Kansas City.
After *Massimo left, Fab-
rizio stepped up to fill the
void his brother left at Cen-
tennial. Fabrizio had never
thought of playing football,
but figured if his brother
could do it, why couldn't he.
"I took his. locker, his
number, I pretty much fol-
lowed in his footsteps," Fab-
rizio said.
Four years later, he had
earned a scholarship to play
at the University of South
Carolina. However, that
dream was never fulfilled
because the Gamecocks
retraced their offer when his
grades started to slip. Fab-
rizio was stuck in Port St.
Lucie, not knowing what to
do next.
"I thought I had it in the
bag, I was cocky and a sen-
ior. My grades dropped and
they didn't want me any
more because of the
grades," Fabrizio said.
"(Massimo) was in college, I
was just working. I wasn't
playing football at all. I
heard they were starting this
new semi-pro team, and I
was like, 'ya know what, I'll
tryout.'"
He quickly became the
starting kicker for the Fire,
and now with his brother
backfrom college and play-.
ing for the Pirates, he has
never been so focused on
kicking and trying to get to
the next level.
The two practice three
times a week at Sportsman's
Park in Port St. Lucie for at
least 1-1/2 hours at a time.
They go through game situ-
ations, practice field goals,
extra points and kickoffs. It
is very important for a kick-
er to stay in shape and keep
kicking because any time off
not only affects their physi-
cal abilities, but also their
kicking mentality.
"It's all about how you
view the field goal poles.
When you don't go out there
for a month, a 50-yairder


looks like a 70-yarder. But
when you go out there a lot

Kicker Massimo Scaccia kicks an extra point for the Treasure Coast Pirates.

and practice, a 50-yarder
looks like a chip. shot," said
Massimo. "It's 80 percent
mental, 20 percent physi-
cal."
Although the two have in-
game records of 55 and 56-
yards, they routinely hit
shots in practice from 65 and
beyond. Massimo's record is
70, while Fabrizio boasts one
of 75. With all the ability, and
stats to back it up, the broth-
ers are just hoping to get
noticed while playing in
Southern States Football
League.
"When I was in college,
people were always telling
me, 'why are you here?' Now
I'm with the Pirates, and
people are like, 'why are you
here?' Massimo said. "I know
I can make it, I just need a
shot."
Both have had tryouts with
teams in the Arena League
and Canadian Football
League. Massimo even tried
out for the Kansas City


Chiefs, but was so nervous
that it was his first real tryout,
he didn't do well. Now he has
a number of tryouts under
his belt and with the hiring of
agent Jake Kivisto, is prepar-
ing for a shot at NFL mini
camps and the NFL draft in
April.
Fabrizio is in a different sit-
uation. Without any college
experience, teams have been
hesitant to sign him. He quit
his job at theWal-Mart distri-
bution plant this to focus on
kicking and school full time.
His goal is to get his grades
up enough to get a shot at
college football in the fall.
"I tried out for the Tampa
Bay Storm. and dominated.
Completely dominated. I
hit the net every time on
kick offs, I was making field
goals the whole length of
the field. But (teams) won't
touch you if you don't go to
college," Fabrizio said.
"They pulled me to the side
and said 'listen, you go to

school, and you'll go any-

wards with that leg.'
"So I'm going to keep
playing for the fire and
working and in August
maybe I'll be somewhere."
Both brothers might have
big plans for later this year,
but that doesn't mean they
are looking past the current
season. Like most brothers,
Fabrizio and Massimo are
very competitive, and have
the Pirates and Fire
rematch on March 10 at
Lawnwood Stadium circled
on their calendars.
While it isn't clear where
the Scaccia brothers will be
in a few months, it is clear is
that it probably won't be
playing minor league foot-
ball on the Treasure Coast.
And that's just fine with
them.
Said Massimo, "I don't
want to look 15 years down
the line and say, 'I wish I
had tried.'"

Well, the best
week of the
year has drawn
to a close.
My week with the
"guys" at the 2007 PGA
Merchandise Show in
Orlando is. over. While
my week may have been
hectic, running to-and-
fro, I will try to slow
things-down a bit as I
tell you a little of my
story of the week that
was.
The week began in
proper fashion as I
woke up early on Tues-
day and traveled up
Florida's Turnpike to the
north end of Orlando
and the Legacy Course
at Alaqua Lakes. Here I
would get my week
started on the right foot
by playing in the Tour


JAMES STAMMER
Golf columnist


Edge multi-media golf
event.
I was one of many
writers who dropped
into town a couple days
prior to the show's
opening to get in a little
golf, obtain some
information on new


products before some of
our colleagues and
properly set our minds
for the task at hand.
In addition to golf, we
were treated to demon-
strations and hands-on
testing of products from
Tour Edge, Medicus,
Sun Mountain, Sky.Golf,
Etonic and Check & Go.
Tour Edge's new Geo
Max driver, featuring
high MOI to resist
twisting when you hit
your drive out on the
toe or near the heal,
was my favorite. The
ball wants to do nothing
more than go straight
off this club. How
welcome is that?
My group was fortu-
nate enough to pick up
Roger Gunn, a top-100
instructor, as a partner.
Between Roger's tips
and the fun we were
having as a team, we
found ourselves tied for
first place at the end of
the day.,
After enjoying some
fine food and beverages
after our round, we
were off to Taylor
Made's kick-off party at
Universal Studios. It
was here that Taylor
Made unwrapped its,
two newest drivers, the
R7 SuperQuad and the
Burner.
After a few more
cigars and some tasty


hors d'oeuvres, it was
off to my "home" for the
week.
Over the years, I have
found that the better
the place I find to put
up my feet, the better
my coverage of the
show. This year was no
exception. My host
resort was CRS Hotel's
new Lake Buena Vista 2
Resort and Spa just a
hop from the intersec-
tion of State Road 535
and International Drive.
(www.lakebuenavistare-
sortorlando.com; (800)
555-7555).
Lake Buena Vista ,
Resort Village and Spa
offers 325 residences,
with your choice of two,
three or four-bedroom
luxury condominiums.
My eighth-floor condo
was larger than my first
home and came com-
plete with a private
balcony overlooking the
swimming pool and hot
*tub, a full kitchen,
spacious living room
and a huge master
bedroom complete with
a jacuzzi Roman tub. Or, ,
as one of my room-
mates said to me, "You
have a swimming pool
complete with the
Swedish bikini swim
team in there!"

have a place to rest my
weary bones after a day
of playing golf, testing '
new equipment or
walking the miles of
aisles at the show. That
hot tub beside the-pool
and the whirlpool tub in
my bedroom were a
blessing.
For relaxing with the
guys, we had a huge 55-

catch up on the news
and golf from around
the world.
In the lobby, I found a
computer that guests
could use to retrieve e-

the free wireless inter-
net in the room. There
is also a large clubhouse
with retail stores, two

IRCC moves



to the top


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer

Indian River Community
Colleges men's basketball
team needed a big win
against a big opponent to
establish itself as a threat to
win the state title. The No. 7
Pioneers got their opportu-
nity Jan. 31 when No. 4
Miami-Dade College came
to Fort Pierce.
In the two teams first
meeting this season, it was
the Sharks who came out
on top 69-66. But IRCC
head coach Mike Leather-
wood had this game circled
on his schedule, not only
because he knew his team
could beat Miami-Dade,
but a win would pull the
teams into a tie for first
place in the Southeastern
Conference.
The River came out fast
and held off a late Shark
comeback, beating Miami-
Dade 69-63 at home. After
the game both teams had
identical 4-2 conference
records and were tied for
first place.
"It was one of our best
games of the year. I expect-
ed us to win," Leatherwood
said. "I feel that they beat
us in Miami in a real close
game, and we didn't play
our best ball. I felt that if we
got them up here we could
win."
Four different Pioneer
players scored in double
digits in the win. Sopho-
more guard Tracy Williams
led the way with 16, while
fellow guard Marin Gray
had 13 and big men
Charles Bouie and Mark
Caviness added 10 and 12
points respectively.
IRCC jumped to a quick
lead using their size and
speed. With an 18-10
advantage, the Pioneers
went to a full-court press
that clearly rattled Miami-
Dade. However, by going to
a continuous attack on
defense, the Pioneers put
themselves in a position tp
be hurt in other ways.
When IRCC wasn't getting
the steal, they were getting
beat to the rim by the
Sharks' guards, who were
anticipating a quick mark.
The crack in the defen-
sive pressure allowed
Miami-Dade to get back in


the game more than once,
including the second half.
With just over 14 minutes
left in the game, guard Kyle
Matteny nailed a three-
pointer, followed seconds
later by a Gary Gibson
layup off a fast break. The
one-two punch cut the Pio-
neers lead to just three
points and 7 minutes later,
Calvin Luptret hit a three
and the score was tied at
53.
But that's when Williams
got hot. Feeling the pres-
sure of the No. 4 team in
the state starting to take
over, Williams took the
inbounds pass down the
floor and nailed a three of
his own. The balance of
power moved from the for-
wards to the guards and
would remain that way
until the end of the game.
"This was must win for
us. The biggest thing (in the
second half) was to box out
on defense and rebound-
ing," said Caviness, who
also finished with 9
rebounds. "We just told
ourselves to stay com-
posed and don't take the
big shot and think smart.
Tracy Williams made a cou-
ple big shot's and that kept
us in the game."
Using his own player as
a screen, Williams hit a
long three from the top
left corner of the arch
with a minute remaining
on the clock. The shot
gave IRCC a four-point
lead and almost sent
Williams into his coaches
arms. Not in celebration,
he was just that close to
the sideline.
"Actually, coach
Leatherwood doesn't like
it when I take that shot:
He usually takes me out.
But he likes it when I
make it," Williams said. "I
was open, and I had the
open look, and I was just
feeling it. I had to take it."
Williams iced the win in
with two free throws with
14 seconds remaining.
The Pioneers won again
Saturday, 79-68, against
Brevard Community Col-
lege. IRCC is on the road
Feb. 10 against Palm
Beach Community Col-
lege, but returns home
Feb. 14 to play Broward.

Defeating physical and spiritual giants


Jesse, a man of wealth
and position, had eight
sons, and the youngest
was David.
His mother, who was
probably Nahash, gave
birth to David in Bethle
hem, a sleepy little town in
the hill country of Judah.
Jesus came into the world
here, in a stable, just over a
thousand years later.
This remarkable histori-
cal city still bears its name
today. Bethlehem is the
home of the "Church of the
Nativity," built by Constan-
tine the Great in A.D. 330.
This ancient structure is
built over a cave called the.
"holy crypt," the stable in
which Jesus was born.
On the surface there was
nothing about David, that
would have caused God to
say, "Wow! That's my
man!" We only know that
he was ruddy, he had a
fresh, healthy, reddish
complexion, probably red
hair, and beautiful eyes.
While young David was
busy tending his father's
sheep, three of his older
brothers enlisted in King


Saul's army.
The Philistines were
beginning to wage war
against Israel. King Saul
gathered the army of Israel
together and they went to
the battlefield. David's
father Jesse worried about
his three sons constantly.
One day David noticed
his father packing some
grain, bread and cheeses.
"Take these provisions to
your brothers, David,"
Jesse urged his youngest
son. "Then hurry home
and tell me how they are
doing."
When David reached the
battlefield, he discovered
king Saul's, soldiers retreat-
ing, running from the
battleline. David couldn't
believe his eyes. The
terror-struck soldiers must
have nearly trampled
David underfoot as they
rushed past him.
The Bible tells us in I
Samuel 17:4, "Then a
champion came out from
the armies of the
Philistines named Goliath,
whose height was six
cubits and a span."


DAVID GOODE
Religion columnist
Let's put in into our
lingo. Goliath stood about
9 feet, 9 inches tall!
He was wearing a coat of
mail, which was a heavy
canvas undergarment,
interlaced with overlap-
ping ringlets of bronze,
and went from his shoul-
der to his knee.
In addition, Goliath
wore body armor weighing
between 175 and 200
pounds, including a
bronze helmet and bronze
greaves, which were plates
of armor to protect the leg
between the knee and the
ankle.


Goliath carried a bronze
javelin or a spear, slung
between his shoulders.
The head of his spear
weighed about 20 to 25
pounds. A shield carrier
ran in front of him, hold-
ing a shield the size of a
full-grown man.
Pause for a moment and
picture this imposing
sight. Imagine how fright-
ening it would have been
to take on a giant of this
size, protected by this
seemingly impregnable
armor!
"Who is that?" David
asked.
The soldiers nearby
explained, "That's Goliath
of Gath.
"Each time we are ready
to attack, he strides out
and challenges us to settle
our differences by fighting
a one-on-one duel.
"He said that if any puny
Israelite can defeat him,
the Philistines will be our
slaves. If he defeats our
best soldier, the Philistines
will take us into slavery.
"King Saul has offered a
huge reward to anyone


who will fight him, includ-
ing his daughter's hard in
marriage."
David rushed off to find
King Saul, and the king
reluctantly agreed to let
David challenge Goliath.
King Saul dressed David
in his own armor, but it
was too heavy so he took it
off. David stood confident-
ly in his shepherd's robe,
holding only his sling. The
sling consisted of a wide
pad for holding a stone,
with a string attached to
each side. When one string
was released, the stone
flew toward the enemy.
When Goliath saw the
tiny figure of David
coming out to meet him,
he threw back his head
and laughed.
"Am I a dog, that you
come with a stick to beat
me?" Goliath roared.
David calmly selected
five smooth stones from a
brook and put them in his
pouch. David said to
Goliath, "You come against
me with sword and spear,
but I come against you in
the name of the Lord


Almighty, whom you have
defied."
Reaching into his pouch
and taking out a stone,
David slung it and struck
Goliath on the forehead
and he fell dead, face
down on the ground.
What giants are you
facing today? Worry,
depression, fear, loneli-
ness, financial hardship?
When you put your trust
and faith in God, as David
did, you can slay your
giants also.
