St. Lucie County Sheriff
Ken Mascara got an early
jump on the 2008 election
season last week.
"I see no reason to delay
announcing my candida-
cy," he said just before fil-
ing for re-election Feb. 9,
more than 20 months
before the election.
Sheriff Mascara, a for-
mer chiropractor who has
held the sheriff's position
since 2000, said he learned
the benefits of filing early
during his successful 2004
re-election bid.
"I was almost at a disad-
vantage because of the
hurricanes," he said. "The
time given to us to
fundraise and campaign
was limited."
Instead of worrying
about those things, hurri-
canes Frances and Jeanne
tested his office's ability to

Council holds


special meeting to


discuss water, roads

City to expand service boundary,
plans to connect with the Western


Palm City Corridor
BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST LUCIE The
City Council held a special
meeting last week to decide
on two issues affecting the
city and its neighbors.
The council met on
Thursday, Feb. 8, to discuss
expanding the city's service
boundary, as well as con-
necting with Martin County
through the Western Palm
City Corridor.
The council voted 5-0 in
favor of expanding the serv-
ice boundary, instead of sell-
ing water in bulk to St. Lucie
County. The county would
then sell the water to cus-
tomers outside of the
boundary.
Florida statute allows
cities to legally expand its
service boundary up to five
miles outside a municipali-
ty's border.
The decision came after
Allied Universal, a bleach
manufacturing company,
requested last month for
water service .from Port St.
Lucie. Allied Universal is
located west of Rangeline
Road, which is the current
services boundary.
Donna Rhoden, utilities
public information manag-
er with the city, told the
council there were three
options for dealing with
water service to those out-
side the current service
boundary. The choices faced
by the council in addition to
expanding the boundary
were to not provide service
at all to outside customers
or provide bulk service to
the county.
If the city decided not to
expand, then other utility
entities could construct
wells that would reduce Port
St. Lucie's water supply.
"Any well fields put in by
ours could restrict the city's
future ability to provide
services," Mrs. Rhoden said.


The city has wells, which
pumps an allotted amount
of water from two under-
ground sources, the Surficial
and Floridan aquifers. Port
St. Lucie is permitted to
remove up to six million gal-
lons a day from the Surficial
Aquifer and nearly 37 mil-
lion gallons a day from the
Floridan Aquifer.
Water withdrawal permits
are issued by the South
Florida Water Management
District, with allowed
amounts based on 20-year
consumption projections.
The wells are pressure-
based, and by building wells
near others can decrease the
amount of water from exist-
ing wells, Mrs. Rhoden said.
By expanding the service
boundary, the city can pro-
tect current and future wells.
"This utility is the basic
lifeblood of the city," said
City Manager Don Cooper.
"Water is a finite resource."
After some discussion, the
council went ahead with a
motion to expand the serv-
ice boundary to five miles
west of Rangeline Road and
north of Midway Road to the
Fort Pierce Utilities Authori-
ty's boundary.
"We would be doing a dis-
service if we do not go with
option one (to expand the
boundary)," Councilmhnan
Jack Kelly said.
Those who wish to
become utility customers
with the city would have to
connect to the water system
at their own expense.
After the utility discus-
sion, the council heard
about a. meeting between
Mayor Patricia Christensen
and Martin County Com-
missioner Michael DiTerl-
izzi to discuss ongoing
issues between the two gov-
ernments. The main issue
addressed at the council
meeting was connecting the

Treasure Coast not immune to tornadoes


BY MATT DONEGAN
Staff writer
In one of Florida's deadliest
days of tornados on record,
20 people were killed and
hundreds of homes
destroyed Feb. 2 when three
tornados ripped through
north and central Florida.
It could have happened
here.
"Florida history tells us


that the stronger tornadoes
tend to strike further north,"
said Dennis Decker, warning
coordination meteorologist
with the National Weather
Service in Melbourne. "But
all it takes is a slight shift and
one could strike further
south."
In 1998, one did.
During the early morning
hours of March 9, nearly two
dozen tornadoes wound


through Florida, including
one that touched town just
before 4 a.m. off Midway
Road near Fort Pierce. The
annual county fair had just
ended, and workers had
begun dismantling the
amusement park rides,
recalled St. Lucie County
Emergency Management
Coordinator Tom Christo-
pher. The tornado destroyed
20 rides and demolished


bleachers and outbuildings.
I "It tore up the fair pretty
bad," he said.
The tornado missed the
county's Emergency Opera-
tions Center by a half-mile,
he said, but the St. Lucie
County International Air-
port was not as fortunate.
Eight planes were over-
turned and a hangar totaled.

m


neighborhoods around the
tornado's path to assess the
damage. Luckily, it was
mostly contained to unin-
habited areas.
"We( were pretty fortu-
nate," Mr. Christopher said.
That was not the last tor-
nado on the Treasure Coast,
but with winds ranging in
intensity from F1 to F2 out of
a possible F5 on the Fujita
Scale, it is still the largest in
the past decade. The scale
classifies tornadoes accord-
ing to the damage they
cause and their rotational
wind speed. An FO starts at
40 mph, and the rare F5
ranges from 261 to 318 mph.
"In general, there's a
greater tendency on the
Treasure Coast for tornadoes
to be small, short-lived
events," Mr. Decker said.
With these tornadoes,.
which are most frequent
during summer thunder-
storms, there's often no
opportunity to issue an alert.
"They often don't show a
signature on radar," Mr.
Decker said.
While these storms don't
tend to be deadly, they can
still cause severe damage,
Mr. Decker said.
These types of tornadoes
are most likely to occur in
coastal locations, such as the
area of the St. Lucie Nuclear
Power Plant on Hutchinson
Island. Plant officials say
they're well prepared.
"St Lucie, like all nuclear
plants, is designed to with-
stand tornadoes, hurri-
canes, fires and floods the
worst case scenario for
each," said Tom Veenstra,
nuclear communications
manager with Florida Power
& Light.
Tornadoes tend to be
stronger, rotate more rapidly
and show up better on radar
in every other season but
summer, giving the National
Weather Service five to 20
minutes to issue an alert
before touch down.
The current season, Febru-
ary through April, brings
more powerful tornadoes to
Florida, according to the


Florida Division of Emer-
gency Management Web-
site.
"When the jet stream digs
south into Florida and is:
accompanied by a strong;
cold front and a strong:
squall line of thunder-,
storms, the jet stream's high-
level winds of 100 to 200'
mph often strengthen a,
thunderstorm into what,
meteorologists call a super-,
cell or mesocyclone," the.!
site states.
The most F2 and greater:
tornadoes by far occurred in,
the 1983 dry season, which.
saw nearly two dozen in the,
state from November,
through April. The deadliest
year of tornados in Florida!
came in 1998, which includ-,
ed the Feb. 22-23 tornadoes
that claimed the lives of 42,
people in Volusia, Orange," *..
Osceola and Seminole,
counties. Both 1983 and
1998 were El Nifio years, as is-
2007.
"There's a strong correlar-
tion between ongoing El
Nifio and high frequency of
tornadoes," Mr. Decker said..
"On a national scale, we,
can't predict tornado sea-
sons. But in central Florida,,
we can look at the El Nifio.
cycle. When we are in an El,
Nifio period, we have found,
that the incidents of winter,
and springtime tornadoes
goes up."

number of killed by torna-

majority of the deaths-

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

your custom-


positive intent toward you and
ers. I am not trying to tell you
how to run your business. I
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your
customers.
Virtually every car dealer
in Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500
to nearly $1,000.s 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 this 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
fact, 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 wilf 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

Bowling alley hosts fundraiser for soldiers


BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE Two
local bowling alleys will
host a special day of bowl-
ing to help the families of
injured or killed military
personnel.
St. Lucie and Jupiter
Lanes are holding simulta-
neous fundraisers on Sun-
day, Feb. 18. The event will
raise money to support
Wounded Warriors, a
Nebraska-based organiza-
tion. that provides free
vacations to wounded sol-
diers and their families.
Families of soldiers killed
in action are also eligible.
"One of our owners was
listening to the radio and
heard about the organiza-
tion, and she immediately
wanted to help out," said
"Rhonda Elkamel, who
handles marketing and


promotions for Jupiter and
St. Lucie Lanes.
The event will give resi-
dents a chance to rent a
lane during two sessions.
During the two-hour ses-
sions, participants can
bowl as many games as
they want, with as many
people who want to partic-
ipate. The cost to secure a
lane is $100 and includes
shoe rental.
Ms. Elkamel said with
108 lanes between the two
locations, there is poten-
tial to raise a lot of money.
"We will match 100 per-
cent of the money, so we
double our donation to
Wounded Warriors," Ms.
Elkamel said.
Wounded Warriors was
started in May 2004 by Col.
John Folson, with the Unit-
ed States Marine Corps
Reserve. The organization
owns two resorts, one in


Texas and the other in
Orlando, and provides
one-week vacations to
families of soldiers injured
or killed in Iraq and
Afghanistan.
Ms. Elkamel said the
money will help families
with transportation to the
resorts and provide spend-
ing money.
She added that the own-
ers of the bowling alleys
wanted to help local fami-
lies, but there were none
waiting for vacations.
In addition to bowling,
there will be a live band at
each location, along with
raffles.
Port St. Lucie classic rock
band, Remedy, donated
their time to play at St.
Lucie Lanes.
"I'm a veteran and a cou-
ple of the guys in the band
are as well," said drummer
Rick Curby. "When I see


men dying in Iraq, putting
their lives on the line for
our country, I figure I can
give a few moments of my
time for their families and
spouses. Anything we can
do it worth it."
Mr. Curby was a para-
trooper for 10 years in the
late 1970s and most of the
1980s. He was involved
with a 1979 failed rescue
attempt of American
hostages in Iran.
"We consider it a privi-
lege to be able to help out,"
Mr. Curby said. "We want
people to come out and
help those who help us."
The fundraising event at
Jupiter and St. Lucie Lanes
is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 3
p.m. Sunday, Feb. 18.
For more information,
call Rhonda Elkamel at
(954) 763-5488, or the
bowling centers.


Bank
From page Al


"A lot of times we talk to
students in class about
finances, and we might do
some reading and study-
ing, but they didn't have
the hands-on," said Scott
Hoffman, finance and
marketing teacher at Cen-
tennial High School.
"Here they can actually
see a transaction or their
interest in a savings
account work."
This is the first bank
branch at a high school in
St. Lucie County. Seacoast
National Bank has a cam-
pus branch at South Fork
High School in Stuart. A
bank is also being consid-


ered for Vero Beach High
School.
Six students staff the
campus bank, and were
trained by Washington
Mutual on how to open
checking and savings
accounts, as well as offer
information about
finances. At the branch,
any student can open a
savings account, while
only students 18 or older
can open a checking
account.
The bank is open every
school day during the two
lunches.
Freshman Waylon
Gruszka, 14, visited the


bank the day it opened.
He is saving to attend the
United States Military
Academy at West Point
after graduation.
"I like having it on cam-
pus," Waylon said. "It's
good for those saving
money for college."
In addition to helping
students save money, the
branch also prepares stu-
dents for the workforce.
Principal Gayle Pike felt-
it was a great way to fill a
need in the banking com-
munity.
"There are so many
banks here in St. Lucie
West, but there is nobody


to train the kids to work as
tellers," Mrs. Pike said.
"Here, we train the stu-
dents, who can go into any
type df level at a bank."
Junior Alexis Roldan, 17,
volunteered to work as a
teller at Centennial High
School's bank. She wanted
to get a head start on her
career plans.
"I want to work as a
teller at a bank, and this is
a great way to learn all the
stuff beforehand," Alexis
said. "It's very exciting to
do this, especially since it
is the first in a high school
here. It's history."

Port St. Lucie student wins spelling bee
A fifth-grade student at Village Green Elementary
School will head to Washington, D.C. in May to com-
pete in the national spelling bee after beating out more
than 35 students in St. Lucie County for the honor.
Aldrin D'Silva won the county spelling bee last week
when he correctly spelled "pumpernickel."
The 11-year-old competed locally last year, but was
knocked out in the first round.

Fish to help clear city's canals
Port St. Lucie's waterways are getting a little help from
2,000 carp.
Subcontractors, working with the Public Works Depart-
ment, began releasing triploid grass carp into the city's
canals on Feb. 7.
The fish, which are currently 10 to 12 inches long, will
grow as long as four feet, and weigh as much as 50 pounds.
The carp eat hydrilla, an aquatic plant that blocks
drainage pipes as it grows. As the plants are consumed, the
risk of flooding decreases.
The fish are sterilized to prevent overpopulation.

Girl killed in traffic crash

A 6-year-old Port St. Lucie girl was killed last week
in a traffic crash.
The girl was ejected from her mother's SUV at the
time of the crash, and was killed at the scene.
The accident happened at 4 p.m. Feb. 8, at the
intersection of N.W. Kingston Street and N.W. Placid
Avenue.
The girl's mother, Sandra Barriga, was traveling
south on Kingston Street when the car was struck by
a pickup truck driven by a Kevin T. Inman, 23.
Police said the 6-year-old girl was in her car seat,
but was not properly secured.
Ms. Barriga will be issued a traffic citation for
driving without a license, with additional citations
possible. Mr. Inman will be issued a citation for vio-
lation of the right of way.
Officers with the Port St. Lucie Police Department
continue to investigate the accident.

Teacher bonuses to depend on FCAT scores
The St. Lucie County School Board approved a new
plan to base bonuses on student scores on the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test.
The plan was created as a way to keep $2 million in
bonus money from the state for St. Lucie County teach-
ers. The state requires school district to come up with a
bonus plan relating to FCAT money.

Detective Ghobrial said
once the two are
processed in Georgia on
those charges, they will
return to St. Lucie Coun-
ty on charges of armed
robbery, grand theft and
armed carjacking for
both men.
"They also face addi-
tional charges from
other agencies," Detec-
tive Ghobrial said.
He added that detec-
tives with the St. Lucie


- -


and Martin county sher-
iffs' offices are investi-
gating crimes that may
be connected to the two
men.
Police said Mr. Clarke
and Mr. Anderson
robbed at gunpoint a 19-
year-old cashier at clos-
ing time at a Publix
Supermarket on Feb. 3.
The men were seen on
surveillance tape enter-
ing the store with guns in
hand.
"The tape shows they
had no regard for human
life," Detective Ghobrial
said. "If someone had
gotten in their way, they
would have been killed."
Around 1 a.m. Feb. 4,
the men stole the Audi
from a convenience
store off Gatlin Boule-
vard.
Detective Ghobrial
traveled to Georgia to
interview the men, who
both confessed to the
crimes in Port St. Lucie.


"They wanted to leave
Florida because they had
no jobs and are convict-
ed felons," Detective
Ghobrial said.
Mr. Clarke has been
arrested 22 times for
crimes such as grand
theft and carrying con-
cealed weapons. Mr.
Anderson has been
arrested 13 times on
such charges as aggra-
vated assault and battery
on law enforcement.

Western Palm City Corridor
to Becker Road in Port St.
Lucie.
The council and Mr.
DiTerlizzi agreed to con-
struct a two-lane road
between Palm City and Port
St. Lucie, with future
improvements paid for by
developers.
"Port St. Lucie will pay for
nothing more than the
$500,000 agreed to in a deal
sixyears ago," Mr. Kelly said.
An agreement about the
road will be drafted in the
next week by Port St. Lucie
staff, which will then go
before the Martin County
Commission for approval.
Mr. DiTerlizzi said he does
not believe the agreement
will be met with opposition
from his fellow commis-
sioners.
The council unanimously
voted to enter into an agree---.
ment over the road with
Martin County. The road
will connect to Becker Road
at Port St. Lucie Boulevard,
which changes plans for a
traffic roundabout at that
intersection.

AFRICAN JEWELRY
The vast continent of
Africa has produced
jewelry of great beauty
and variety since pre-
historic times. In addi-
tion to the work at the
ancient egyptians,
Northern Africa is noted
for the silverwork, plain
and enameled, of
Tuareg and other desert
people. South of the
Sahara, crafts people in
the great medieval king-
doms made.rings, ear-.
ings, bracelets, and
other ornaments out of
gold (Ghana), amber
(son), ivory and brass
(Benin), and bronze
(Yoruba). Beads of shell
and of glass have long
been important ele-
ments of personal
adornment all over
Africa. Jewelry has also
been used as a vehicle
for religious symbols, as
in the crosses of
Ethiopia and the
amulets of northwestern
Africa and to indicate
social or economic sta-
tus. Today's African jew-
elry echoes many tradi-
tional themes, often with
modern materials.

Dentists, remember the patients

Having recently moved from up north, I had a big real-
ity check with dental emergencies here.
I'm shocked to find that dentists here work only Mon-
day through Thursday, so what happens if you have a
problem on Friday?
You have to suffer for three days. What happens to
people if the only time they have off is the weekend, they
need to take a day off in order to see their dentist?
In NewYork, the dentists worked Monday through Fri-
day, and worked rotating Saturdays to accommodate
patients.
I can't believe veterinarians are open on Saturday, but
dental offices are closed.
The lack of caring for patients, and the lack of flexibili-
ty in schedules, might explain why so many people are
walking around toothless in Martin and St. Lucie Coun-
ty. What would.happen if the doctors decided to take the
same attitude?
With dental prices so high, you would think a little
customer service would come with that: price.

Let's make it free

The local paper just reported that an expert will con-
duct a care and dog obedience class sponsored by the St.
Lucie County parks department.
The class should be totally free, with the reward of free
spay/neuters and shots for all dogs attending.
Certainly, this would be a far better way to spend the
excess tax income that the county has generated by the
usual multimillion dollar beach re-nourishment with
"Oops, we did it wrong. Let's hire the same contractor
for a do over."
Imagine the enormous benefits to the county of free
dog care and obedience class. It would pay for itself.

PSL streets are not raceways

I am so tired of the way drivers speed down our street.
I was almost hit while trying to make a right turn into
my driveway by someone who tried to pass me on the
right. I've been passed on this street at least three times
in the past week. I do the speed limit.
This is not the first time this has happened. They think
this is a raceway or something. They fly down this street!
I've already seen a dog get hit here, and next time it
might be a child!
The police should set up radar on Butterfly Terrace.
They would give out so many tickets that they might
have to go to the station to get more.

Pre-prepare for tornadoes

Weren't we lucky that we didn't get any tornadoes?
I have made a lot of preparations, and yet I was run-
ning around scared, getting things together that I
should've gotten together before.
I think it's time we all think about being prepared.
We should have water on hand. Empty those bottles,
and fill them up with fresh water. Be sure you have food
items and legible addresses of your contacts under your
phone or on your refrigerator.
Have a grab-and-go bag. Be sure to get rid of old things
in them, such as phone bills from 1980. Have it sim-
mered down to a few things and where you can get it
quickly.
Be sure you know where extra keys and glasses are.
You might even get a new address book for 2007, in
case there are things in there you would like to update
and change.
Also, know where your "safe-space" is so you know
where to go.
These are very important things to think about. I
called some neighbors to warn them and they were
happy I did because they didn't have their televisions on.
There are people that may not know that we can help as
well.

Senior supports the tip

I'm a seasonal senior who very much appreciates
servers and commend all those who work hard in what-

ever field.
I live in an adult community, and there are some rude
and selfish residents here, but the kind, thoughtful and
generous ones far out weigh the former category. What
percentage, exactly, are your contributors speaking
about?
I'd like to make a couple of points:
We had a friend working in a rural diner in another
state and she told us that most people never tipped at all!
Perhaps this is a regional practice and Rants and Raves
can educate the offenders.
Let's pretend no senior even dined out again in Florida.
How many restaurants would there be in our area? How
many server jobs? How much would you make in tips?
We don't eat in upscale restaurants, but I would think
that if poor tipping was a problem, you might want to
approach management and see if they are willing to add
a fixed percentage gratuity to the bill. Surely they care
about you even if your customers don't. Maybe it's a
small consolation but you are no doubt bringing in more
at the end of the day than your counterpart in a less
expensive restaurant.
For all those in school, and thus in transition; I hope
you remember how important generous tips are as you
move on in life.
I worked as a housekeeper at a resort while in college
and have a special place in myheart for that group.

Bad post office feng shui

I have lived in Port St. Lucie for 26 years and I am dis-
gusted by the looks of the post office on Midport Road in
Port St. Lucie.
We have not had a hurricane in more than a year and-
a-half and still there are dead palms littering the parking
lot.
Half of the post office sign are still gone, the parking lot
lighting does not work, and the entrance and exit signs
are still all twisted and mangled from the 2004 hurri-
canes.
I pay taxes and demand to know why this hasn't been
fixed yet, not just because it looks terrible, but our tax
dollars are to pay for things like this. I would like to know
why.
Please, someone get a message to the post office to
clean it up.

Free health care

This is in response to the person who believes that
everyone should receive "free" health care.
First of all, F- cialized health care will never be "free." It
will be expensive, and we will all pay for it in one way or
another, just like they must in Canada.
There they finance what can charitably be called a slow
and mediocre system with high income tax rates, a feder-
al sales tax, and high fees for driver's licenses and vehicle
tags. I
The ranter also stated that people in England are
"much healthier than we are."
If in fact this were true, the cause would more likely be
a difference in life styles, rather than any advantage of
their health care system.
In addition, one necessary ingredient that makes uni-
versal health care even remotely feasible is government
control of medical and drug expenses.
All countries with socialized health care, and many
without it, keep strict controls on drug and medical
costs.


Any presidential candidate who had the courage to
propose such vital controls would certainly have my
vote.
Who pays for 'free' health care?

In the February 2 issue of rants and raves, a writer
replied to a previous post about free health care for chil-
dren by expressing an opinion that there should be free
health care for everyone.
The justification was that it has worked so well, and
care was so much better in other countries, such as Eng-
land, as witnessed by unnamed and undocumented
studies. The person also suggested a "fair tax" to pay for
it.
Here is my suggestion to them. Wait until your neigh-
bor has arrived home from a hard day at work. A good
day would be April .15, or the day they have received their
latest property tax bill.
Go ring their doorbell. When they answer, stick your
open hand in their face and demand that they give you
money to pay for your health care.
While you are there, you may as well demand money
for a park, the environment, open space, etc, etc.
After they have slammed the door in your face, go back
home and write a letter to the newspaper, your state rep-
resentative, and anyone else about how greedy and self-
ish those people are, and that you demand they stick the
.gun of government in their face and take the money.
Then, if that doesn't work, pack your bags and sell your
home, which the government rents to you just like Eng-
land, and move to England.
Viola! Your problems are solved.
Hellloooo, the founding fathers of America left Eng-
land because they were tired working, and being serfs to
a feudal king.
A feudal state is no better. Take enough of a person's
paycheck to pay for social nirvana and they will have no
incentive to work. Elect politicians to do this, and the rest
of us who pull your cart will not pull it anymore

Florida driving humor

To the person who was concerned about Florida driv-
ers, perhaps he or she was unfamiliar with local styles.
Here are some driving tips:
Wait for ten to 15 seconds after the traffic light turns
green. This will be enough time to cause some anxiety
and concern from the drivers who are following you.
Never use the turn signal until you are actually turning.
Don't let the drivers behind you know what you intend to
do.
When turning left from a turning lane, never drive par-
allel to the lines always leave a good portion of the rear of
the car sticking out to partially block passing traffic.
Occasionally make a left turn from the right lane
and/or make a right turn from the left lane, this will help
to keep other drivers on the alert.
Do all of this while using a cell phone. And if you don't
have phone, hold one hand to the ear and pretend.
I hope this helps.

State Representative reflects on insurance reform


Floridians will
have additional
options in
choosing type
of coverage
BYRITA HART
Staff writer
STUART -When it comes
time for Floridians to
renew their property
insurance, they will be
happy to notice rate reduc-
tions. However, they will
also have decisions to
make on options available
to reduce insurance pre-
miums further.
State Rep. William D.
Snyder, whose district
/"includes Martin County
r and parts of St. Lucie and
Palm Beach counties,
noted recently that the
new insurance reform bill
signed by Gov. Crist on Jan-
uary 25 will permit proper-
ty owners to drop wind-
storm coverage from their
policies and eliminate a


cap on the insurance
deductible. As a result, he
cautions property owners
who are considering their
options.
"Everyone needs to eval-
uate their resources. I
encourage people to seek
advice and not arbitrarily
take the highest deduc-
tions for the lowest rates,"
he said.
"Have someone analyze
your risks. You don't want
to be standing in your front
yard after a hurricane and
realize you can't afford to
pay your deductible and
you can't get your house
fixed."
Rep. Snyder said that
although the idea of hav-
' ing more money in your
wallet at the end of the bill-
paying cycle is enticing,
consumers should remem-
ber that insurance is all
about risk.
' "You are betting, by buy-
ing insurance, that you are
going to have damage, and
the insurance company is
betting that you won't. And
everyone can't win in that


game," he said.
Rep. Snyder further
expounded on the new
law, which will go into
effect in June.
"Going into this legisla-
tive year, it was clear to all
of us that insurance was
the issue," said Rep. Sny-
der.
"It was the proverbial
800-pound gorilla in the
room that everyone had to
deal with."
Rep. Snyder said that for-
tunately, House Speaker
Marco Rubio, Senate Presi-
dent Ken Pruitt, and Gov.
Charlie Crist all saw it that
way.
As a result of the special
session, Rep. Snyder said
that six bills were passed,
resulting in the insurance
reform package.
"We hope this will begin
the process of making
insurance more affordable,
make better sense and
treat consumers better,"
said Rep. Snyder.
The reform will heavily
impact Citizens Property
Insurance, which must

freeze rates at their 2006
levels and offer consumers
coverage not offered previ-
ously, potentially reducing
rates by as much as ten
percent.


Citizen's Property Insur-
ance Company is a state-
run company created by
the Florida State Legisla-
ture in 2002 to insure prop-
erties that no private


insurance companies
would touch.

doesn't accept.
Get fired from your job as city manager in a smaller
city.
Don't properly count the ditches, and overpay the con-
tractor.
Bid jobs and accept the lowest bid from a contractor
with a bad reputation.
Allow staff to be rude to councilpersons.
Be a smooth talker, maybe your contract will get
renewed and you'll get a raise.
The American dream, "nightmare."

Why are reporters reluctant to take pictures
of animals being euthanized?
Animals need not end up in the euthanasia room of the
Humane Society of St. Lucie County if the Humane Society
would simply invite a television camera to show the proce-
dure on even just one healthy cat, dog, puppy or kitten!


When I phoned a local television channel with this sugges-
tion, the reporter was aghast and quickly disconnected me.
Well, that kind of shock is precisely what is needed in order
for people to see the need to stop killing at the local shelter
by passing a St. Lucie County mandatory spay/neuter law.
It seems it's fine to show explosions, killings and execution
hangings of humans, but nobody should dare suggest a
photo of an animal being euthanized!
But don't the newspapers and television channels have a
duty to report on the tragic euthanasia of thousands of dogs
and cats in our shelters? And to report the misery of the
employees who go through the nightmare of killing animals
everyday?
Why are reporters reluctant to take a picture of an animal
being euthanized, a picture that would obviously help pass a
mandatory spay/neuter law?
If you read this and want to pass a mandatory spay/neuter
law, please contact newspapers, radio and television station,
and urge them to report on euthanasia in our local Humane
Society shelters.


Snowbird complainers
In response to ."Pray the snowbirds don't go west,"
enough already!
If you can afford to spend $25,000 each year when
down here, please shut up!
I personally do not believe you spend that much down
here. I have a feeling you are one of those cheaposs" I see
leaving no tip for the waitress. As for snowbirds not hav-
ing any school age children, neither do I.
I moved down here from Illinois to get away from the
cold and be near our daughter. Actually we could not
afford to retire up north. We moved here in 1997 before
the housing boom.
I would like to have seen much slower growth. I also
would have liked to have seen a better class of people
moving in. I also wish I did not have to experience (hurri-
canes) Frances, Jeanne and Wilma. Were you here for
them? I also wish the gridlock during "the season" would
go away. Your ignorance on the road is something to
behold.

"I don't think anybody
would argue that Florida
being in the insurance
business is not the perfect
answer. But this is not a
perfect world," said Rep.
Snyder.
"We have a large seg-
ment of our population
that cannot get insurance.
There are instances where
people who are wealthy
and live in coastal areas are
utilizing Citizen's insur-
ance. I don't believe that is
entirely fair, and I suspect
and hope that practice will
ultimately be solved. I
think that people who
want to live in coastal areas

that can afford to live there
may ultimately have to
take on their own insur-
ance risk."
Rep. Snyder pointed out,
however, that the majority
of people who use Citizen's
Insurance are not wealthy.
"They are the every day
man and woman strug-
gling with a family who
just can't get insurance.
Those are the ones I meet
and hear from," he added.
Rep. Snyder said that the
message the legislators
heard loud and clear was
that Floridians believed
they could no longer live in
the state because of the
high cost of insurance.
"This was the pulsating
message that the voters
sent to Tallahassee," he
said. "They demanded
action, and I think the
action we took was a huge
step in the right direction."
One major change is
reinsurance, a method by
which private insurance
companies purchase state-
discounted coverage at a
reduced rate.
Rep. Snyder said that the
state-discounted coverage
is made possible because
all insurance sold in Flori-
da contributes to the rein-


surance pool.
The new law requires
companies using the state-
discounted coverage to
then pass the savings on to
their customers.
Rep. Snyder said the
insurance companies
based their rates on the
assumption that if Florida
had eight hurricanes in the
past, there were likely to be
more in the future.
"Insurance companies
are a private enterprise
with stockholders and
shareholders; they are not
in the charity business. We
have a state with some of
the most extensive shore-
line in the country, and we
have trillions of dollars
worth of economy to pro-
tect. We are playing in the
big leagues, and insurance
companies are not here as
a charity. So the Legislature
is taking them to task," said
Rep. Snyder.
He pointed out that
much has been built into
the insurance reform law
for consumer protection.
"We've changed the time
span that insurance com-
panies have to give to con-
sumers before they drop
that person."
Even the way the insur-


ance bills are printed will
change, according to Rep.
Snyder.
"How many people get
these bills and have no
clue what they say?" he
asked.
Rep. Snyder also said the
bill has a component to
allow for arbitration, and
another dealing with the
length of time within
which a claim has to be
paid.
Rep. Snyder said that the
overriding message of the
legislators is that this
reform is only a first step.
*"A lot of what we did will
take years to take effect.
There will be fast results,
and immediate reductions,
but our goal is not just
immediate rate-reduc-,
tion," said Rep. Snyder.
"We want to stabilize the
industry and move for-
ward. Would like to see a
way to get the insurance'\
companies back in the
insurance business and get
Florida out of the insur-
ance business."

public and assisting in
recovery efforts and not
dealing with political
issues," he said.
Besides hurricanes,
Sheriff Mascara during his
time in office has led his
more than 500 sworn and
civilian members through
the trying times after Sept.
11, 2001, worked toward a
solution to jail overcrowd-
ing, and has been at the
helm of several high-pro-
file cases.
'Anything challenging
that's confronted me dur-
ing my tenure we have
responded to profession-
ally and answered the
call," he said.
The sheriff faced per-
haps his toughest call Oct.
13, 2006, when a family of
-, four was found gunned
down near the shoulder of
Florida's Turnpike. Under
the microscope of nation-
al media, the sheriff's
office worked the case
around the clock. Less
than two weeks after the
murders, four suspects
were in custody on drug
charges.
"In my opinion, the peo-
ple responsible are in jail
and will continue to be in
jail," Sheriff Mascara said.
"When the federal drug
prosecution is complete,
we'll look-forward to other
charges."
It was the second
quadruple murder the
sheriff faced in seven years
in office.
A psychiatric patient at
Savannas Hospital killed a
nurse and three patients
on April 10, 2001. The
investigation into the case
was extensive and likewise
received national atten-
tion.
Despite these tests,
Sheriff Mascara said he
plans to remain in office as
long ,as he continues to
find the job both challeng-
ing and enjoyable and as
long as he feels he's an
effective leader. With the
help of frequent drug and
Internet predator sting
operations, he feels he has
been.
Fort Pierce Police Chief
Sean Baldwin said the
cooperative effort
between his department
and the St. Lucie County
Sheriff's Office on initia-
tives such as Weed and
Seed and Project Safe
Neighborhoods during
Sheriff Mascara's tenure
has led to reductions in
crime over the past several
years.
Looking forward, the
sheriff said keeping up
with the growth in the
county would continue to
be an issue for his office.
This year's county budget
is expected to include
funding 'for 53 new Sher-
iff's Office employees. But
jail crowding will continue
to be a challenge, he said.
Mr. Mascara is the first
candidate to file for the
2008 sheriff's election. The
election is Nov. 4, 2008.

p rocaimeu louu

and clear


BY ROBIN RINKE
Staff writer


FORT PIERCE When
Michael Paul Tiedemann
died of a drug overdose
in 1998, he was a sopho-
more at Westwood High
School and it changed
his parent's lives.
Michael, the youngest
son of Brad and Debbie
Alumbaugh was only 15
years old when he died
after using the drug
Gamma Hydroxy
Butyrate, known as the
date rape drug.
The parents say they
believe one of Michael's
best friends brought the
drug GHB to their house.
The experiment went
bad, and the death of
their son, Michael, left
them, and a
community in shock.
Michael's father said
one year after his death,
Michael appeared to him
in a dream and gave him
a message to give to
youth.
"In the dream Brad saw
Michael standing. Then
Michael spoke and said,
'Dad, you don't have a
clue about the drug use
of my generation. You
need to go out and tell
them the truth,'" Mrs.
Alumbaugh said.
They took that message
to heart. They founded
Michael's Message, a
nonprofit organization.
The couple educates the
public and youth about
the dangers of the illicit
drug GHB and other
designer/club drugs, as
well as prescription
drugs.
They speak in schools,
community centers and
anywhere they are invit-
ed.
Michael's message has


touched more than
300,000 teens.
"We use a different
approach, informing stu-
dents of the poisons such
as muriatic acid and floor
stripper that are used to
make these drugs.
Michael's Message gives
students tools and a bet-
ter understanding that
they can no longer just
say 'no,' but teens must
help' their friends say
'no,'" Mrs. Alumbaugh
said.
Many students who
hear Michael's message
never forget it.
"I had the privilege of
hearing the Alumbaugh's
speak at Vero Beach High
School when I was a sen-
ior. I remember feeling
sad about their loss," said
Megan Friesen.
"I feel like they definite-
ly helped kids that were
using drugs or thinking
about using them by giv-
ing pertinent informa-
tion on the effect and
harm. It's information
that you don't forget,"
Ms. Friesen said.
The Alumbaugh's are
providing that informa-
tion through another
source.
They took four years to
write the book, "Michael:
Who Would You Leave
Behind?" is the story of
their fight against drug
abuse.
"The book and how it
all came together is a
special story in itself,"
Mrs. Alumbaugh said.
Through a ghostwriter
and editor, they wrote
Michael's message. Then,
right when they needed it
a representative from the
Educational Media Cor-
poration, Earl Soronson,
saw the Alumbaugh's
presentation at a confer-
ence in Georgia and
offered to publish the
book.
"After the presentation
Mr. Soronson told my
husband that he believed
in what we were doing
and wanted to publish
the book for us," Mrs.;
Alumbaugh said.
Recently, a motor home
was given to the organi-;
zation to help them trav-
el throughout the nation,
proclaiming the mes-
sage.
"Six new tires are need-
ed for the -bus, but we
know they will come,"
Mrs. Alumbaugh said.

tion, visit the Web site

PORT ST. LUCIE -
Even though she passed
away more than a year
ago, the philanthropy of
the legendary singer and
actress, Francis Lang-
ford, lives on.
And sometimes her
generosity can material-
ize in the most surprising
ways.
The Treasure Coast
Christian Academy in
Port St. Lucie recently
received $50,000 from
the Francis Langford
Foundation. It was
money the academy had
given up on as lost.
The award will be used
to help fund a new build-
ing to house the pre-k
through tenth-grade
school.
"This was unexpected
and the grant really came
about in a strange way,"
said Peter Tellex, the
board of directors of the
Treasure Coast Christian
Academy.
The story began when
Mrs. Langford was still
alive.
Mr. Tennex said two
years ago he was talking
to a friend, the com-
modore of a local yacht
club, who had recently
been on Mrs. Langford's
yacht.
The friend said Mrs.
Langford was very giving
of her time and yacht for
charity.
"I decided to write a let-
ter to Mrs. Langford and
ask if it would be possible
for her to host a cocktail
party as a fundraiser for
our new academy.
"I outlined our intent
and mailed the letter,"
Mr. Tellex said.
Shortly after he sent the
letter he received a call
from Mrs. Langford's per-
sonal secretary, Kim
Stanton.
Ms. Stanton asked a few
questions about the new
school and the fundrais-
er, then, said she would
get back to him.
"A few months passed
and I received another
call from Ms. Stanton


explaining that Mrs.
Langford had been in the
hospital, but was now
home. And, once again, I
was asked a few more
questions.
"A few months went by
and that is the time in
which Mrs. Langford
passed away," Mr. Tellex
said.
"With her death (on
July 11, 2005), I assumed
the fundraiser ended as
well."
Mr. Tellex didn't know
that is was actually just
the beginning of some-
thing very special for the
academy.
The entertainer, who
was best known for
singing to the troops in
the '40s as a regular
member of Bob Hope's
USO tour, intended to
continue her charitable
work to the community.
"I received another
phone call in January
2006 from Ms. Stanton,
about six months after
Mrs. Langford's death.
Ms. Stanton was request-
ing that I fax our school's
nonprofit forms to her,"
Mr. Tellex said.
This made him wonder.
"Then, in March, our
academy received a letter
informing us that we will
be the recipients of
$50,000 and would
receive it in December."
. He was amazed at such
a gift.
"This grant will be
applied the new 30,000
square-foot modular
building, which will sit
on 11. 4 acres on Olean-
der and Saeger in White
City," Mr. Tennex said.
White City is between
Fort Pierce and Port St.
Lucie. The building will
be the new home to the
277 Treasure Coast stu-
dents who attend the
academy.
Completion of the
building is expected for
the 2007-08 school year.
"A dedication ceremony
is being planned to
honor Mrs. Langford and
her generosity," Mr.
Tellex said.
"It's really an amazing
story."

Woman

fights for

change in

abuse law

BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE A
woman's fight to change
the laws on emotional
abuse is still waiting on a
co-sponsor to step for-
ward.
Jodi Walsh, whose ex-
boyfriend tried to talk
their son into killing Ms.
Walsh, helped draft a bill
to amend the current
child abuse law to
include emotional abuse.
Ms. Walsh and Rep.
Gayle Harrell, R-Stuart,
along with others in the
community, have drafted
new legislation to
address the issue. Rep.
Harrell will represent the
bill when it comes before
the state House of Repre-
sentatives, and a state
senator has tentatively
agreed to sponsor the bill
in the Senate if there are
some changes.
"We have a senator who
has agreed to take it on,
but he hates the- lan-
guage," Ms. Walsh said.
"The senator has told us
the language is way over-
reaching."
At press time, the sena-
tor looking at the bill
requested to remain
nameless.
The bill has a March 2
deadline to be intro-
duced to the legislature
before it is dead until
next year.
"We are still working on
it, and we hope we can
come up with some-
thing," Ms. Walsh said.
She added that she will
continue to work on
changing the law until
action is taken.
"This is a serious prob-
lem and we need to pro-
tect our children here in
Florida," Ms. Walsh said.
The issue came to light
after Edward Munao, Ms.
Walsh's ex-boyfriend,
tried to convince their
son, who was 6 years old
at the time, to kill Ms.
Walsh with a kitchen
knife in November 2003.
Her son, who is now 10,
still sees a therapist for
the emotional trauma he
suffered.
Mr. Munao was origi-
nally convicted of child
abuse and solicitation to
commit aggravated bat-
tery, and sentenced to 10
years in prison.
According to the Florida
Department of Correc-
tions Web site, he is
scheduled to be released
from prison in 2009.
Mr. Munao, who is cur-
rently incarcerated at the
South Bay Correctional
Facility in Palm Beach
County, appealed his
convictions, and the
* Fourth District of
Appeals reversed the
child abuse conviction
on Sept. 1. The court stat-
ed in its opinion that
while Mr. Munao's state-
ments are "deeply trou-
blesome and offensive,"
Shis verbal statements
cannot support a convic-
tion.
After Ms. Walsh's case,
she formed a nonprofit
group, Childs Cry for
Help, to assist other chil-
dren who have been the
victims of emotional


abuse.
"Emotional abuse is
very hard to prove," she
said. "This is a rising
issue in the United States
and internationally."

Help, visit www.child-

colon



cancer

ome years ago, Katie
Couric raised aware-
ness about colon
cancer and early detection
by televising her
colonoscopy You'll be
happy to know that I have
no such plans.
However, a recent screen-
'ing colonoscopy and the
death of a dear friend from
colon-cancer have remind-
ed me that this is a disease
that truly can be prevented
and diagnosed early, can be
treated successfully.
The preparation is
unpleasant, but it is two
days out of your life; two
days to prevent an illness
that kills thousands of
people every year. It's hard
to see why so many people
resist having the screenings
done. Perhaps I can help
change your mind.
The American Cancer
Society reports that other
than skin cancer, colorectal
cancer is the third most
common cancer found in
men and women in this
country. The Society
estimates that there will be
almost 150,000 new cases of
colon and rectal cancers
diagnosed that will take
nearly 60,000 lives in 2006.
The good news is that the
death rate has been declin-
ing because of screening
that results in the removal of
polyps, or growths, that may
turn cancerous, and
because patients whose
cancers are detected early
have a better chance or
surviving.
Early colon cancer usually
has no symptoms therefore,
it's important to follow
screening guidelines, even
if you have no symptoms so
that the cancer can be

hope you had a goqd
week.

Vero to Hobe Sound. Call the

Today's column will give you
information you probably never
thought about, but once you
know you'll feel much smarter
than the average bear!
While we were enjoying my
pecan pie' at Christmas, my son
said, "This is made with corn
syrup. You know corn syrup is
very bad for you?"
When I informed him that
high fructose corn syrup is bad
he asked what the difference
was.
After much research, I learned
about many things, from corn
syrup to raisins. To me, knowl-
edge is power and knowing
unusual facts about foods we
take for granted is important.
I've used corn syrup on
occasions that a recipe called for
it, and looked at it as another
form of sugar. Why didn't the
word "corn" set off a red flag?
Probably because most of the
time, we're so busy just doing,
we simply don't pay attention.
Corn syrup is made from
cornstarch and three different
enzymes that convert corn-
starch into corn syrup. It is
always used along with sugar
since alone, corn syrup isn't
sweet enough. What it does is
retain moisture and keeps food
fresh.
While corn syrup is no better
for you than regular sugar, it is
not harmful to your body.
However, in the 1970s, high


fructose corn syrup was
created by adding
several chemicals to
corn syrup to make it
sweeter than sugar. High
fructose corn syrup is
found at this time in just
about everything you ,
buy, from sodas to
cereals to packaged
foods and candies. Why
is it used? It's cheaper
and maintains freshness
longer.
Nutritional scientists it
believe high fructose
corn syrup is a contribu-
tor to obesity and type II
diabetes. The reason being is
that unlike other sugars, high
fructose corn syrup goes directly
to the liver, releasing enzymes
that instruct the body to store
fat. Remember, in sweet things,
a little should go a long way.
When a product is labeled low
fat, you can bet they up the
sugar or in other cases, the
sodium.
Consume less "junk," and you
just may lose weight and find a
newer healthy you.

Molasses

There are three types of
molasses, and they all come
from sugar cane.
Unsulphered molasses is the
finest quality. It is made from
the juice of sun-ripened cane
and the juice is clarified and
concentrated. Sulphered
molasses is made from green
sugar cane that has not
matured enough and is treated
with sulpher fumes. It has a


The Guru's
Special Hint

All carbohydrates are not bad for
you. Whole-wheat pasta is excel-
lent for your health. Try Barilla
brand with Omega-3 fatty acids
added.



To Your Health

New research in the 'American
Journal of Clinical Nutrition'
suggests that cola consumption is
associated with reduced bone-
mineral density, especially in
women. Non-cola drinks were not
linked to such problems. Other
studies suggest that too much cola
can leech the calcium from bones.


darker color, is less sweet and
has a stronger flavor.
Black strap molasses is from
the third boil and is usually
used in cattle feed. However,
it is used at times in the
health food industry because
of its high iron content.
Brown sugar is refined sugar
with the addition of molasses.
The darker the sugar, the more
molasses.


Chitc I


Raisins


Last, but definitely not least,
raisins. There are dark raisins
and golden raisins. Common
sense tells us that dark raisins
are from red grapes and golden
raisins from green. Wrong.
Golden raisins are dark raisins
bleached with sulpher dioxide.
The package labels the sulpher
as a preservative but now we
know better. How dare they
charge more for a product that
is less healthy? Now, sulpher in

Ideas and
Comparisons

Ask your supermarket manager to
inquire about white whole-wheat
flour. Gold Medal and King Arthur
make it, and it's as nutritious as
dark whole-wheat flour.

FEAR OF THE DRILL
Q: I'm afraid of going to the dentist. What can I do? L o
A: If you're afraid of going to the dentist, you're not alone. Some 40 million
Americans cite fear or anxiety as the reason they don't visit a dentist regularly,
according to the Dental Phobia Treatment Center of New York. Obviously, ignoring
dental problems will only make them worse. Here are some points to consider: Ask
questions and develop a good rapport with your dentist. The more comfortable you
are with you dentist, the less stress will be involved with a visit.. Schedule
appointments for the time of day you're most comfortable. In other words, if you consider yourself "a
morning person," make the appointment for then. Don't try to squeeze an appointment in over lunch or
in a brief afternoon break. Trying to get in and out quicldy will raise your stress level.
Talk to your dentist about techniques he uses to relax patients. Various levels of sedation are available.
Those could include use of nitrous oxide, or "laughing gas," or use of intravenous sedation administered
by a trained anesthesiologist. Dentists also offer distractions like DVDs and music. Talk with a dentist
about ways to overcome your anxiety.

From page B1
the form of a vitamin is
good for your bones,
unless of course you're
allergic to sulpher.
Read all labels, especially
on nutritional supple-
ments. If the print is too
small, call the 800 number
and request a larger print
out. If you don't watch out
for yourself you can be
sure no one else will.
Today we're going to
make an unusual recipe
for a great chicken dinner
and a delicious fudge.
Enjoy and see you next
week!

CHICKEN CACCIA-
TORE
(NIB) Serves 4
Neopolitan style,
low-fat

Not knowing the mean-
ing of the word cacciatore
and figuring it had to
mean something really
special, I checked my
Italian dictionary. Does it
make any sense to you that
cacciatore means
"hunter?" It can also mean
fighter pilot. Oh Well! The
title doesn't make sense,
but the dish is delicious. I
have a hunch that many
years ago, when a hunter
came home with a fowl
this was a method of
cooking he used. The
original recipe, which I
found in a very old cook-
book, is so fat-laden it
could cause a coronary.
:I have made several
changes and the end result
is delicious.

1 frying chicken.
1/2-cup flour
11/2 teaspoons salt
1/4-teaspoon black
pepper
2 eggs, equivalent of egg
Substitute or egg whites
1 1/2 tablespoon parsley
"flakes
1/4-cup milk, regular,
low fat or skim
1/3-cup grated Romano
Italian cheese
Aerosol cooking spray
1 tablespoon extra virgin
olive oil
2 large cloves garlic,
:coarsely chopped
1 large can (28-ounce)
,crushed tomatoes with
'added puree
:;1 teaspoon salt
1/2-teaspoon black
pepper
1/2 teaspoon oregano
Few shakes crushed red
.pepper
Dry red or white wine

Cut up chicken and
remove all skin and traces
of fat. Save wings and back
for another day. Soak
chicken in cold salted
water for about 1 hour.
Place next three ingredi-
ehts in a plastic bag.
:Shake chicken pieces in
bag to coat with flour
mixture.
In a small bowl, beat
eggs, 1 tablespoon parsley
flakes and milk together,
Place grated cheese on
waxed paper. Dip floured
chicken pieces in egg
wash, press lightly into
grated cheese. Place
chicken pieces on an
aerosol sprayed cookie
sheet. Spray tops gener-
ously. Bake in a preheated
425-degree over until
bottoms are browned.
Turn oven control to broil
and broil tops until lightly
browned.
While chicken is brown-
ing prepare sauce. Spray a
large skillet with cooking
spray. Add oil and garlic
browning lightly. Add
tomatoes, salt, pepper,
oregano, remaining


parsley and crushed
pepper if you choose.
Cover and cook until
chicken is ready, (about 15
minutes). Add chicken
pieces and a couple of
splashes of wine. Cover
and cook about 25 min-
utes, turning chicken
occasionally until meat is
fork tender. If sauce is too
thick add water a little at a


time. Serve with a side of
pasta.

CHICKEN
CACCIATORE WITH
MUSHROOMS

Follow base recipe. Use
1/2- pound fresh mush-
rooms, (sliced) or one 7oz.
can of mushrooms with
liquid. Add to skillet after
chicken has cooked for
about 10 minutes.

MUSHROOMS AND
PEPPERS

Follow base recipe. Use
fresh (sliced) or canned
mushrooms with liquid,
and 1 or 2 green or red bell
peppers, cut up. Add to

U UP Lrt tH t Nd F a ,


Welcome to the world of computers


ell, you finally did
W it. After months,
even weeks, of
planning, you finally took
the plunge and bought your
first computer.
So now what?
You got your new
machine home, out of the
box and plugged into the
wall, now what do you do?
All those magazines and
consumer reports don't tell
you what you are going to
do with your new machine,
they just tell you which ones
they think are better. Why
are you getting a computer
in the first place? What do
you need a computer for?
What are you going to do
with it?
If you are a new computer
owner (that is, you've never
owned a computer before in
your life), there are a few
things that you ought to
know right off the bat, the


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This
kind of things that no one
tells you about when you
were shopping for your
machine, such as how to do
the basic things people want
to do with their machines
such as sending and
receiving e-mail, typing
letters, "downloading" and
going on the Internet.
You've heard about these
things a thousand times, but


what does it all really mean?
I know first-hand just how
confusing things can be
when you bring home your
new computer. There is a lot
of excitement as the
machine is plugged in for
the first time. Then, when
you throw the switch and
turn it on, your journey
begins.
You may be brought
through a menu where you
have to fill out some infor-
mation about your- self and
you may have to enter an
authorization code, but
before too long you will
make it to the Windows
desktop, where all the magic
happens.
The Windows desktop is
the first place you will see
every time your machine
wakes up and stabilizes. You
can tell when the machine is
fully awake because the little
hourglass will go away and


the hard drive will stop
"chugging."
You can recognize the
Windows desktop by the
presence of a "start" button
on the lower left corner of
the screen and the presence
of icons, such as "my
computer," "my docu-
ments," and "recycle bin."
Take a look around.
Click the "start" button
and a menu will open that
will lead to more options.
Move your mouse up the
menu and you will see
different program groups
expand as you pass your
mouse over them. This is
where you can find all the
controls that make your -

detected early, when it can
be treated successfully.
Some cancers can even be
prevented from forming
with the removal of polyps
found during the screening.
The American Cancer
Society recommends a
variety of screening tests
that help aid in the early
diagnosis of colon cancer.
Beginning at age 50, both
men and women with an
average risk of developing
colon cancer should follow
these ACS guidelines:
* A fecal occult blood test
every year. Your primary
care physician can give you
a take-home kit.
* Flexible sigmoidoscopy
every five years.

combination of the annual
fecal occult blood test and
the flexible sigmoidoscopy
every five years. The flexible
sigmoidoscopy cannot
examine the entire colon,
and therefore, they recom-
mend a double-contrast
barium enema every five
years or a colonoscopy
every 10 years.
It's the colonoscopy that
seems to get everyone's
attention and make people
delay screening, so perhaps
it's a good idea to let people
know what to expect.
People always mention
the preparation for a
colonoscopy. In fact, for a
day or two prior to the test,
you need to drink only clear
liquids such as apple juice,
tea and non-red flavors of
drinks such as Gatorade.
That's not really so bad.
The day before the event,
the colon must.be cleaned
out so that the doctor can
have a clear view. You will
have to drink some prepara-
tions and take laxatives that
will make you stay close to
the bathroom for 24 hours
or so. It is unpleasant, but it
is something you need to
do, and you will get through
it.
The test itself, for which
you will receive anesthesia,
is nothing. I arrived at the
center at 8 a.m.; we were
home by 10 a.m. and the
doctor removed a small
polyp. The only side effect
was that I was pretty groggy
that day. You are required to
have someone drive you
home.
A few days later, the doctor
called to tell me that the
polyp was benign and that
he "didn't need to bother
me" for five more years. I felt
such relief I need to repeat
the test in five years because
I am at a higher risk. For
many of you, getting the all-
clear is a 10-year free pass.
Next week, I'll discuss
some of the risk factors for
colon cancer and some
measure researchers believe
may help prevent the
disease.
In the meantime, if you are
older than 50, or if you are
younger than 50 but have a
family history of cancer, talk
to your doctor.

Beware the phony 'Monroney'


Phony Monroney"
should not be
confused with the
song "Boney Maroney" (I
got a gal named Boney
Maroney. She's skinny as a
stick of macaroni).
That song was first
recorded by Larry
Williams during my high
school years, 1956-58. You
will appreciate this lame
attempt at humor only if
you are about my age, 66.
The Monroney label is
the window sticker that is
mandated by federal law
to be affixed to every new
vehicle sold in the United
States up until the time
the new owner takes
delivery.
The name Monroney
derives from Sen. Michael
Monroney's law passed by
Congress in 1958. Prior to
the proposal of this bill,
'there was often a large
discrepancy between the
showroom price and the
actual price of a new
.vehicle.
The fact was, existing
price tags did not tell the
full story. Most customer-
quoted prices were for
"stripped-down" models
and did not include
additions for preparation
charges, freight charges,
federal, state, and local
taxes or optional factory-
installed equipment
requested by the purchas-
er.
These hidden charges
were used by some dealers
to increase the selling
price while giving the new
vehicle buyer an inflated
idea of their trade-in
allowance. This price
confusion led to a slump
in auto sales during the
early 1950s.
Sen. Monroney's bill
,was designed to prevent
the abuse of the new
vehicle list prices, but
would not prevent dealers
and buyers from bargain-
S ing over vehicle prices.
Well, as you might
expect, car dealers have
figured out a way to evade
this very good law. An
alarmingly large number
of Florida dealers use a
*label that is designed to
look almost identical to
the official Monroney
label. It has the same
coloring, fonts, type size
:'and layout. This "phony
Monroney" is affixed right
next to the genuine article.
Unless you really look
close and'read all of the
fine print, you will have no
idea that you are looking
at a counterfeit Monroney
:;label.
This phonyMonroney
includes extra charges to
artificially inflate the
manufacturer's suggested
.list price.
One of the most egre-
gious of these charges is
an addition of pure
markup just for profit,
Which has a variety of
names. Some of these are
"market adjustment,"
"additional dealer
markup," "adjusted
market value," "ADM, "
"market adjustment
addendum" and "market








UiVd3H ]0rAUHS ANV

SNOO $AVS

cI % i aiJ


I


.- ----.-- -j


value adjustment."
This is simply an
amount that the dealer
adds to the manufactur-
er's suggested retail price.
It is virtually always used
in high-demand, low
supply cars. I have seen
these labels with charges
as much as $10,000
added to the MSRR
Additions of $1,500 to
$3,995 are common.
Dealers also use the
counterfeit labels to
price dealer-installed
accessories, which are
OK, so long as the
accessories are not
marked up higher than
the manufacturer marks
them up.
When customers
confuse the phony
Monroney with the real
one, it distorts their point
of reference for compar-
ing prices between
different dealerships.
One manufacturer's
Monroney labels are
consistent. A 2007 Honda
Accord with the same
factory accessories will
have the same MSRP at
every Honda dealership
you visit. But if dealers
fool you into thinking
their label is part of the
Monroney, you are not
comparing "apples with
apples."
This can adversely
affect a good buying
decision in a number of
ways.
Some buyers focus
mainly on how big a
trade-in allowance they
can get for their old car. If
one dealer has the same
car marked up $3,000
more than another
dealer, he can offer you
$3,000 more for your
trade and still make the
same profit as the other
dealer. Some buyers
focus on how big a
discount they get from
"sticker." It's easy to give
a higher discount if you
have artificially inflated
the MSRP by thousands
of dollars.
My advice is to careful-


'1* 4 .


EARL STEWART
On Cars


ly inspect the sticker on
the new car you are
contemplate buying.
Read it completely and
especially the fine print.
If there is a second label
on the car, it is possible
that it is fair. This would
be for purposes of adding
an item, installed by the
dealer, such as floor mats
or stripes, priced the
same as the manufactur-
er charges. If that second
label includes a markup
over MSRP for no reason
other than profit for the
dealer, make sure you
adjust for that number in
your comparisons for
discounts and trade-in
allowance. ,
Some dealers also add
a second markup to
these labels and that is
the infamous "dealer fee"
also sometimes called
"doc fee" and "dealer
prep."
Some dealers do not
put this on the phony
Monroney but print it on
their buyer's orders and
program it into their
computers.

Hold your mouse over the

and you will be able to see
all of the programs that are
already installed on your

Programs are like tools
and the "programs group" is
like a giant toolbox. Each
one of the programs listed in
the programs group is a tool
specifically tailored for a
specific task and, like most
tool boxes, it is OK to have
two or more of the same

Instead, focus on learning

Spice it up with Florida grasses


ost of the
columns I write
usually have to
do with adding color to
your yards by using
annuals, perennials and
flowering bushes. There
are many instances when
you could add accents to
corners, islands and even
flowerbeds with plants
other than flowers.
Ornamental grasses
may be just the ticket you
are looking for. There are
several choices that do
quite well in our area and
they are fairly easy to
take of.
I am going to start with
a fairly common orna-
mental grass called
pampas grass (erianthus
ravennae). This grass is
an excellent choice for an
island with pampas grass

in the center and shorter
flowering shrubs or
annuals surrounding the
grass. This grass also
looks great when planted
along a corner of a
structure with possibly a
row of caladiums or
other choice of flower
along the front of the
grass clump.
The appearance of the
grass is that of a graceful
arching fountain. It does
best in a sunny location
in an area that has damp
ground. It does need to
be watered on a regular
basis or it will start to dry
out.
These plants will thrive
better in the northern
areas, such as Indian
River County north. It
will also grow south of
that, but will require
more watering and a
location with some
shade, particularly in the
afternoon.
One amazing feature of
this grass is that it will
grow in almost any
habitat. You can actually
plant it in an area that
has hard rocky soil. It is
also a great specimen to
plant in an area that

frequently floods due to
heavy rains or even from
rising water along a
stream or lake. In some
of our colder winters, the
leaves may die back from
a heavy frost, but they
will grow back in early
spring.
Another great choice is
redhead fountain grass.
Although smaller in size
than the pampas grass, it

produces an equally
graceful fountain effect.
The plumes of redhead
fountain grass are soft to
the touch. This is quite a
contrast to the sharp
edges of the pampas
grass. The plumes pro-
duce color all year long.
You can use fountain
grass in containers, along
borders, in rock gardens
and along foundations.
The colorful plumes can
be cut and placed in a
vase or other suitable
container as an indoor
accent.
As with most ornamen-
tal grasses, they are not
adversely affected by
most insects or diseases.
If you are looking for an
almost indestructible
choice to use as a border
plant, look no farther.
The Lirope evergreen
giant is the plant for you.
Although mainly known
for its graceful cascading
leaves, these plants will
also produce small flower
spikes from summer
through autumn.
The plants will remain
green all year long. These
plants look best when
they are planted in large
masses or as a border
plant. They look killer
when used as a border
along fences or walls.
As with most grasses, it
requires very little care
and I have had excellent
luck with it in both sun
and shade. It is very
forgiving if you forget
about it and do not water
it for a period of time.
Plant it in an area that
has well-drained soil.
If brown leaves appear
on the plant, simply trim
them off in late February.
This will help promote
healthy growth in the
spring.

Living a chain-free, pain-free life


Editor's note: This is the
second of a two-part series.
Last week's Spirit Guide
column was about
answering two of the
four most important
questions I heard from my
clients and readers in
January at the South Florida
Fair.
The questions were: how
can I free the chains that
bind me and how can I live a
pain-free life?
Today's column is about
answering the third and
fourth, how can I grow
spiritually and how can I
find lasting happiness?
The first step in growing
spiritually is to learn from
the past. Bless it for what it
taught us, forgive it instead
of judging it, release it, move
on and grow a new and
better life. This leads to the
fourth question, how can I
find lasting happiness?
We each have a unique set
of thoughts, feelings, ideas
and appetites living inside
us. No two people are
exactly alike. You are one of
a kind in all of creation. One
of the keys to happiness
after we begin to find our
true self is to associate with
others who are similar or
compatible with our nature.
If you hang out with
people who are opposites, it
usually leads to war, trouble
or control. Stop the war, for
universal sake. It only leads
to destruction.
True and lasting happiness
is only possible when we use
our natural gifts.and talents
and do what we truly love.
How happy are you? If you
aren't, don't look for another
person to fix you. It won't
happen unless you are
happy with yourself first.
You don't have to be stuck,
sidetracked, lost or sucked
dry by controlling people.
There is a better way.
Open up your heart, listen
to your inner guidance and
make wise choices by doing
the things you truly love.'
True and lasting happiness
comes when we put love
first rather than hate or
judgment and grudges. It
comes whenwe want to live
in peace rather than war. It


comes when we choose to
live a healthy, active lifestyle
rather than let disease rob
us of our life force.
It comes when we find
abundance and do what we
love rather than eke out a
bare existence and live in
poverty. It comes when we
have faith and trust in the
higher power rather than
live a life of fear, doubt and
indecision.
It comes when we live a joy
filled life rather-than a sad
one. Go ahead, take the
plunge,.go inside and find
the vast treasure house of
riches living in the vault of
your soul. You can do it. Your
true happiness depends on
it. You are an heir to a
spiritual kingdom waiting to
yield its goodness in all its
forms.
Isn't this the way you truly
want to live? You have
everything to gain and
nothing to lose. Why suffer
any longer? Love is the
answer. If you don't love it,
don't do it, no matter what.
If you are doing things you
don't love, learn to accept
and love them or don't do
them either. It's your life. You
don't have to be a slave to
the world, others, old habits
or addictions unless you
have given up. Never give up
on life. It is the most valu-
able, sacred gift we ever
receive.
Once you have reclaimed
it and are feeling freedom
and lasting happiness, you
have become a master of
life. From the increasing
abundance, take care of
your own and family needs
first. You did most of the
work to get here. Then save
for a safe happy future. Next,
give back to others search-
ing for their truth. You are
now the light. First, give to
those who inspired you and
helped you on your journey.
This is your spiritual family.
Help keep them going. Then
teach others who are ready
and want to know how you
do all these magnificent
things. This is living a life of
respect, love, honor and
dignity. It is human nobility
at it's finest. It's called
unconditional love, giving
back freely as we have been

BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Kirsten Gustafson's
mother named her daugh-
ter after famed opera
singer Kirsten Flagstad,
who she had listened to on
the radio as a girl. When
her daughter performs
with the Nelson Riddle
Orchestra at the Sunrise
Theatre on Feb. 25, she'll
be saluting another
classical performer, Ella
Fitzgerald.
"Maybe she hoped I
would sing opera," Ms.
Gustafson said with a
laugh. "That's not exactly
what she got."
Ms. Gustafson's love
affair with jazz and the
standards began early in
her career.
"It's music I feel so at
home with," she added.
"It's comforting and
exciting. I listen and look
for every nuance in each
interpretation. I admired
Ella's work from the Chick'
Webb days, when she
emulated others. Then,
watching her development
into Ella, with that recog-
nizable voice and style."
Her manager suggested
the association with the
Nelson Riddle band.
"He thought it would be
a great pairing, as Nelson
Riddle had written so
many of the arrangements
for Ella," Ms. Gustafson
said. "Christopher Riddle
is carrying on the Riddle
name, which is a name
everyone recognizes. We're
keeping the Nelson Riddle
arrangement for many of
the songs."


The show will feature
works by Cole Porter,
George and Ira Gershwin,
Jerome Kern Harold Arlen
and Rodgers and Hart.
"We won't be able to sing
all of the songs, so we are
putting together a med-
ley," Ms. Gustafson said."
There are so many gor-


Kirsten Gustafson


geous songs. I love 'Blue
Skies,' 'IWant to be
Happy,' and the wonderful
Johnny Mercer lyrics for
'Too Marvelous for
Words.'"
Oscar -winning song-
writer Sammy Cahn, who
wrote the liner notes for a
Gustafson CD, has said
that Ms. Gustafson herself
is "too marvelous for
words."
The Nelson Riddle
Orchestra and Kirsten
Gustafson appear on
Sunday, Feb. 25, in a salute
to Ella Fitzgerald at the
Sunrise Theatre, 117 S.
Second St., in Fort Pierce.
Tickets for the 7 p.m. show
are $30-50. Call the box
office at (772) 461-4775 or

TRAVEL



Plan a women only trip


he 2007 calendar of
new and exciting
destinations for
women only is now avail-
able.
These tours are designed
for women who are tradi-
tionally caregivers, who
regularly place the needs of
everyone else in their lives
ahead of their own. It is
undeniably important that
women take the time to
nurture themselves and
travel is the best way to do
just that.
What you can expect from
these tours is an assort-
ment of locally hosted and
fully escorted trips that
have been professionally
planned and especially
designed for women.
Everything included on
your trip would cost much
more to do on your own
compared to an all-inclu-
sive land price.
Stay at quaint inns,
resorts and spas. Tours
feature free time to explore
and shop, special lectures
by local experts, cooking
classes in local cuisines,
walks, garden tours,

BY WENDY DWYER
For Hometown News
The get together twice-a-
week to warm up, do home-
work, and hit the courts.
Everyone learns new skills,
makes lasting friendships,
and shares lots of laughs and
good times. The fact that
some of the members of this
team are in their 60s and 70s,
while others haven't even hit
their teens, hardly seems to
matter. They're having fun
and sharing Tennis Educa-
tion and Mentoring (TEAM)
with one another, and they
wouldn't have it any other
way.
TEAM, a Big Brothers Big
Sisters program held in
cooperation with the Sebas-


Staff photo by Wendy Dwyer
Buddy Segal & J.C. Cantu work together on tennis, aca-
demic and teamwork skills through Big Brothers Big Sis-
ters Tennis Education and Mentoring program, which
meets twice weekly at the Sebastian Boys and Girls Club.


tian Boys and Girls Club, is
an exciting way to motivate
children in sports, exercise,
academics, and schoolwork.
With guidance and assis-
tance from the United States
Tennis Association, the pro-
gram is designed with three
basic goals in mind: to intro-
duce pairs of "Bigs" and "Lit-
ties" to the fundamentals of
tennis; to foster a spirit of
teamwork and cooperation;
and, to drive-home the
importance of a healthy
lifestyle through regular
exercise.
Currently, 15 mentors and
almost 20 children are
involved with the program
regularly. But additional
openings are available for
both male and female men-
tors.
The prerequisites are:
adult mentors must be over
the age of 18, interested in
mentoring children and
playing tennis. Volunteers go
through the same screening
process that community-
based and school-based
mentors do, and receive
training and one-on-one
support from Big Brothers
Big Sisters staff members.
Twice a week, the children
arrive and finish their home-
work before it's time to play
tennis. Mentors are on hand
to help in anyway necessary,
and once homework duties
are done, both the "bigs"
and the littlee" lace their
sneakers and hit the courts.
There are warm-up exer-
cises including stretches and
running, volleys, fore and
backhand practices and a
chance to work on the all-
important serve.
Then there are team
games or drills, which allow
mentors and students to


physical health and fitness
while having a lot of fun.
The mentors involved
aren't necessarily tennis
professionals they're
individuals who love to
play tennis and want to do
something to help children
in the community.
By joining the TEAM pro-
gram as mentors, they can
stay in shape, help make
the community a better
place, and share their love
of tennis and fitness with
another generation. Stud-
ies have consistently
shown that children who
are mentored are substan-
tially less likely to skip
school, act-out aggressive-
ly, experiment with drugs
or alcohol, and are far more
likely to have a positive
attitude, succeed academi-
cally, and get along with
others. In tennis terms, it's
a "Love" match, where
everybody wins.
For more information
about the TEAM program,
or about any of Big Brothers
Big Sisters mentoring pro-
grams and activities, call
(772) 466-8535.

a large group. And, of course,
there's plenty of opportunity
for a singles or doubles
game of tennis before the
sun starts to sink into the
west and the day officially
ends.
TEAM mentors and partic-

the opportunity to work
together on improving both
academics and teamwork.
Some days are set aside with
special computer skill class-
es and workshops for the
mentors and kids, and the
kids love the opportunity to
learn about something that
they're so interested in mas-

None of the kids minds
taking a written quiz, so long
as the topic of the day is
something they've come to
passionately love tennis!
It's a wonderful way for
kids who may not have

Jaguars block their


way to district title


Mitch Kloorfain/chief photographer
Port St. Lucie High School's Larry Sanders (No. 45) comes from behind to shut down Sebastian River
High School's William Wilson (No. 4). The Port St. Lucie Jaguars won the district 13-5A title with the 73-
58 victory Saturday, Feb. 10, at home.


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
When teams face Port St. Lucie in
basketball, they know it will be diffi-
cult to get points in the paint.
It may have taken them a while, but
on Feb. 10, the Jaguars showed every-
one why.
Port St. Lucie swatted, smacked and
blocked repeated shot attempts by
Sebastian River players en route to a
73-58 win for the District 13-5A
championship.
When the smoke cleared, the
Jaguars had totaled 16 blocks, 10 of
which came from Jaguars' big man
Larry Sanders. Sanders also added a
game high 32 points and 17
rebounds.
"He does a good job in the middle.
He gave us some problems. We con-
tinued to attack him, but I guess he
just got a lot of blocks tonight," said
Sebastian River head coach Mark
Adams. "Port St. Lucie was just better
than us tonight; bigger and better."
Size didn't matter much in the early
going as Sebastian River freshman
Keith Matthews was able to milk 14
points out of the paint in'the first half.
But that changed come the second
half. The Jaguars' defense closed
lanes and tightened up down low.
With Sanders and junior Octavious
Raymond planting their feet in the
low post like oak trees, the Sharks'
inside game was non-existent.
Sebastian quickly went to its guards
for help on the outside. Sophomore
William Wallace (13 points) and sen-
ior Ashton Jones (13 points) were
lethal from the floor. Wallace hit three


three-pointers and Jones created
shots off the dribble for to help bring
their team the lead with four minutes
to go in the third quarter, 41-38.
But that's when Raymond stepped
up big for the Jags. Sebastian River
had keyed on Sanders most of the
game and was starting to get to him.
But when Raymond started getting
points of his own in the paint, Port St.
Lucie's big men were awakened.
Raymond's 18 points (10 in the
fourth quarter) allowed Sanders to
move with the ball more and get bet-
ter looks at the basket. The Sharks
now had to worry about two big men
for the Jags and couldn't compensate.
"I love it when he's down there
because I see him. I might get it in the
high post, and I can catch it and go,"
Sanders said. "I love it because he
takes the pressure off me."
Sebastian River tried to press to
start the fourth quarter but with the
help of nifty ball handling by Jags
guards Travis Hearing and Mario
Saintelous, they were able to get past
it. Port St. Lucie then decided to throw
on a press of its own, which killed any
momentum Sebastian River had left.
"I'm happy that we got the big victo-
ry. I knew they would make that run,
and I knew it would be tight," said
Port St. Lucie head coach Kareem
Rodrigues. "It's hard beating a team
three times, but the guys showed a lot
of poise."
Port St. Lucie faced West Boca
Raton Feb. 15 in the regional quarter-
final while Sebastian River traveled to
play William T. Dwyer Community
High School..Both games were held
too late for this edition of the paper.

Three members of Fort

back/wide receiver Justin
Wilkins (Lincoln Universi-

Derrick Hallman (Univer-

moved on for the Cobras.
"Not only are these guys

other guys not sitting up
here," said Fort Pierce Cen-
tral head football coach
Chris Hutchins. "They have
the athletics skills, the
behavior skills, and they
have the skills in the class-
room to be able to sit up
here an sign a national letter
of intent to a major college
football program."
McDowell chose the Talla-
hassee school because "it
felt right," and thinks he has
an opportunity to play right
away. Location also had a lot
to do with his choice. By
playing in Florida, he knows
his family can come watch
him play next season for the
Rattlers.
Wilkins started his senior
season as the Cobras' quar-
terback, but a lacerated kid-
ney sidelined the versatile
star for more than half the
season. He had hopes of
landing a Division I scholar-
ship, but understands that
his injury hurt his chances.
So when the opportunity to
play wide receiver at a Divi-
sion II school, Wilkins wel-
comed it with open arms.
He will join 2006 Fort
Pierce Westwood graduate
Donald Brown at Lincoln.
Wilkins said he knows
Brown a little bit, but plans
on getting to know his new
quarterback much better
this summer. He plans on
playing wide receiver for the
Blue Tigers.
"I think it's a good deal for
(Wilkins). I think Lincoln
University has made an
effort to recruit Florida kids

"Coach (O'Leary) said that'
he could see me starting
next year because physically
I'm ready, and mentally I'm,
ready," said Hallman. "The
thing that he liked about me
was that I can think on the
field. Some kids get brain
dead (on the field). He just
kept telling me, 'We need ya
man, we need ya.'"
St. Lucie West Centennial
standout Max Alexandre
also signed with a Division I
school. The defensive end
made it official when he
signed his letter of intent to
play at James Madison Uni-
versity in Virginia. The small
community of Harrison-
burg, Va., that surrounds the-
2004 Division I-AA national
champion Dukes reminded'
Alexandre of home. The
prestige of the program cer-
tainly had something to do
with it as well. Alexandre
hopes to contribute right
away, and he understands
that playing college ball will
be harder than high school,
and he has plenty of training

Hallman was one of the

J am so glad that I paid
attention in geometry
class back in school.
I know my triangles from
my rectangles. I know
trapezoids from squares
and even circles from
ovals.
All of that knowledge,
ingrained so many years
ago, came in handy at this
year's PGA Merchandise
Show.
The rage in driver and
fairway wood design for
2007 is all about geometry.
Manufacturers are
finding new ways to push
the center of gravity
farther back in the head,
and even out toward the
back corners, in an effort
to help us hit the ball
straighter and (they claim)
farther.
Since this past Novem-
ber, we golfers have been
teased with photos of
professionals on tour
playing drivers shaped like
squares or long triangles
that look like squashed
versions of our current


2007

wow" thrown in.
The first thing you notice
with a "square" driver,
besides the shape, is the
sound.
Nike's new Sumo 2 driver
makes enough noise to not
only awaken the dead, but
to make them complain
about being so rudely
disturbed. The noise is
enough to warrant
earplugs for your playing
partners.
Callaway's version of the
square, the FTi, is nearly as
loud, and makes a distinc-
tive sound due to the large
amount of carbon fiber in
the head. No matter how
well I hit this driver it
never sounded like I really
crushed the ball. While
this one went pretty
straight, it felt and
appeared to hit the ball
shorter than my current
driver.
Then you have Orlimar's
Fury QB driver (www.orli-
mar.com). The Fury has
very, very little carbon
fiber in the head and
makes a sound much
closer to what we have
become accustomed.
From the address position,
the head looks like the
hood of my brother's ,
Chevy, and it's nearly as.
large.
One thing I noticed with
the new designs is that you
should consider stepping
down in loft from what
you currently use. Not only
is the weight farther back,
but lower as well. This
design makes getting the
ball airborne quite easy.

has, in my opinion, the
best square driver on the
market. The NF2 is com-
pletely titanium. The
result is a forged head that
sounds beautiful when
you strike the ball. The
head also doesn't appear
as large as the others do,
and is truly square. This
driver gave me the best
distance of the entire lot
and the most forgiveness
as well.
Simpac is also the only
company with a complete
line of fairway woods and
hybrids that feature the
companies' trademarked
square shape to comple-
ment its flagship driver.
If square is not your bag,
there are still several high
MOI drivers to choose
from.
Tour Edge
(www. touredge.com)
introduced the Geo MAX
at the show. Company
founder and chief designer
David Glod believes the
square design simply does
not do enough for the
average golfer and that
most will not put up with
the horrible sound most
have.
With a much more
traditional shape than
anyone else, Tour Edge's
high MOI driver delivers
the highest MOI numbers
of any driver. This means
that you can still have a
traditional look and sound
while straightening out
those off-center hits. At
the company's media
event, I found this to be a
fairway-finding machine.
Taylor Made (www.tay-
lormadegolf.com) pulled
the wraps off its new
Burner driver. More
traditional in shape, the
Burner is nearly as long
face to back, as it is toe to
heal. Moving the weight so
deep in the head helps to
stabilize it at impact. The.
problem I had when
hitting this club was the
face was closed as well,
and I wound up hitting
some nasty hooks.
Adams Golf
(www.adamsgolf.com)
took an in-between path.
Its new Insight BUL driver
has a more rounded toe
area at the front and the
rear while the heel is more
square. The expanded
mass design moves weight

sticks.
Manufacturers are
finding that moving
weight as far away from
the face as possible creates
a more stable head at
impact.
When most golfers hit
their drive out on the toe
or in toward the heel, the
head of the club actually
twists and opens or closes
causing the ball to go in a
direction different than
the one we intended.
These latest drivers have
what engineers call "high
MOI," or moment of
inertia. The higher the
MOI, the more resistant
the club is to twisting
when the ball is struck
somewhere other than on
the sweet spot. It is a
practice that has become
quite popular in putter
design the past several
years.
It all sounds great in
theory, but what about
reality? At the PGA Mer-
chandise Show, I took full
advantage of the opportu-
nity to hit just about every
one of these new drivers.
My findings were a mixed
bag of good and bad, with
some terrible and an "oh

The highlight of this treatment is
that it restores the patient's control over

maintain an erection at will. Couples
are once again able to have spontaneous
sex. Normal sensation, including
orgasm and ejaculation, is not affected.
The procedure is covered by most insur-

not only to the rear but
toward the heel, to help
golfers more easily square
the club before impact.
I must tell you one thing'
of extreme importance.
None of these high MOI
drivers will straighten out
a slice or hook. I saw
plenty of swings at the
demo day and not every-
one enjoyed straighter
drives from the new
geometric drivers.
These drivers are meant
to help you when you
make a good swing, yet
miss the sweet spot on the
face. The club doesn't
twist as much as before,
thus the ball flies
straighter with less
distance loss.
If, however, you put an
ugly outside-in swing on
the ball with an open face,
the ball will slice. Geome-
try simply cannot defeat
physics. I also didn't see
the proclaimed distance
gains.
These clubs all look
beautiful in an odd way.
Some perform better than
others and nearly all will
wake up anyone still
sleepy from the night
before.
Will they help your game
as much as advertised?
That depends on your
swing. Misses will fly
straighter and, in most
instances, straighter is
longer. If there was ever a
club that needs to be
"demoed" and fitted
before purchase, a high
MOI driver is it. You never
know, being square may
be a good thing.
