By KIM COTTON

When Danny Jazarevic
arrived in this country a
quarter century ago, 'he
had $480 and a suitcase.
He now has one of the
most prolific backgrounds
of any trauma surgeon in
the United States, and
Lawnwood Regional Med,
ical Center & Heart Insti-
tute just landed him.
Growing up with a diplo-
mat for a tlhher, the
Yugoslavia native got to
taste the West, traveling to
Germany, Belgium and fin-
ishing high school in Hol-
land. He returned to


Yugoslavia for medical
school in Croatia, and at
the same time did his
obligatory military service.
While defecting at age
25; a border patrolman
shot him in the leg. But Dr.
Jazarevic still made it to
Austria and recovered
there before coming to the
United States on a tourist
visa.
It was November 1982
when he arrived in New
York City, not knowing a
single person in America.
It was raining and cold, so
that same night he got
there, he took a bus to
Florida where he knew the
weather would be better.

He got off in St. Petersburg,
only because it was morn-
ing, the weather was nice
and he wanted to get off
the bus, he recalled.
With a.PhD and nowhere
to sleep but outside, Dr.
Jazarevic worked odd jobs.
For half of 1983, he was a
bouncer in bars.
Once he got a green card,
he went to Tennessee to do
an internship at Vanderbilt
University, then on to
Philadelphia for his resi-
dency.
In 1984, he joined the
U.S. Army Reserve as a way
to make his medical career
more complete. Plus the
military was what he knew.


'"The trauma center is going to benefit every-
one. It's going to enhance the level and the
quality of care that we have access to on a
daily basis in our community"

Dr. Danny Jazarevic


After all, both sides of his
family had been career
military members for sev-
eral generations.
Seven years later, he
found himself in Iraq as a
senior surgeon with the
12th Evacuation Hospital
during Operation Desert
Storm. He operated on
Americans, as well as


enemy combatants.
"The Iraqi military and
Saddam Hussein did not
have a medical corps," he
said, traces of his accent
more apparent on certain
pronunciations, though
nearly undetectable on
others.

Police search for man who



stole from own community


BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE -
Police are investigating a
case of a man targeting
immigrants from his
native country.
Brazilian native Marco
Guizan, 43, made friends
quickly in the city's
Brazilian community,
charming residents and
business owners. After
spending eight weeks in
Port St. Lucie, he skipped
town with at least
$300,000 from trusting
people.
Port St. Lucie Police
have obtained two war-
rants, for grand theft and
criminal mischief,
against Mr. Guizan, who
police believe is in New
York City. The warrants
apply to one victim who
has come forward, but
police believe there are
more.
"The Brazilian commu-
nity is sometimes reluc-
tant to come forward
because of their immi-
gration status," said Offi-
cer Wagner Leite, a crime
prevention officer with
the Port St. Lucie Police
Department. "He preyed
on the Brazilian commu-
nity because he knew


that most likely they
would not report the
fraud."
Police said Mr. Guizan
would take large deposits
from people for various
construction projects,
from granite countertops
to display cases for one
business. The people
paid-for the work, but Mr.
Guizan either did no.th-
ing or very little on the
jobs.
He also hired people to
work on job sites, but
never paid workers or
material suppliers during
the short time he was in
town.
"During my investiga-
tion, I discovered he
appeared in Port St. Lucie
in October and disap-
peared in December,
leaving behind many,
many victims," said
Detective Anthony
Cecala.
One victim is James Fer-
raz, owner of Land of
Granite and Marble in
Port St. Lucie. He said Mr.
Guizan paid him for two
jobs, but after that he was
given bogus checks.
"He's a very trusting
guy," Mr. Ferraz said. "I
lost a lot of contracts
because of.him."
Mr. Ferraz said he lost


$15,000 and does not
believe he will be com-
pensated for his loss.
"What he did was not
right," Mr. Ferraz said.
"Everybody here works
really hard to get paid. I
hope he goes to jail for a
long time."
Detective Cecala said
Mr. Guizan worked in the
city under two different
names, Marco Pinaio and
Marco Pinheiro, but has
used as many as 10
names, addresses and
Social Security numbers,
making it hard to track
him down.
"Everything we had on
him was false," Detective
Cecala said. "We had no
way to confirm who he
was." .
Undex the Marco Pinaio
name, detectives found
an expired Florida dri-
ver's license with a photo
that a victim was able to
identify as the person
who committed the
fraud. The driver's license
picture was also matched
a poster made by mem-
bers of the Brazilian
community. The picture
was of a smiling Mr.
Guizan holding a birth-
day cake.
It wasn't until Detective
Cecala spoke with Detec-


tive Scott Young with the
St. Lucie County Sheriff's
Office that Mr. 'Guizan's
true identity was learned.
Detective Cecala also
learned Mr. Guizan had
17 felony charges for the
same type of crime in
North Carolina. He is also
wanted in that state for
violation of probation,
Detective Cecala said.
Since police believe Mr.
Guizan is in New York
with family, the U.S. Mar-
shals have been contact-
ed to help apprehend
him.
Police are asking that
any resident who was a
victim of Mr. Guizan
come forward and make
a report, regardless of
immigration status.
"If a victim walks
through our doors, we
will investigate it 100 per-
cent to the best of our
abilities," Detective
Cecala said.

The Port St. Lucie Police
Department is located at
121 S.W. Port St. Lucie
Blvd., at the corner of
Airoso and Port St. Lucie
boulevards.
Investigators can be
contacted through the
department's main num-
ber, (772) 871-5001.

on weekends with her
unit, also received the
Exemplary Personal
Appearance award, the
Girls' State Graduate
award and the Joseph C.
Gillian scholarship
award.
Navy Day is when
cadets and their program
are reviewed and
inspected by a com-
manding officer with the
United States Navy.,
The inspection was
conducted by Cmdr.
Hebert, overseer of the
Navy JROTC programs in
Florida.
"The success of this
unit comes from the
school's office support,
community support, and
good instructors," Cmdr.
Hebert said. "This unit
has a Navy and a Marine
Corp instructor, I believe
the two are keys to build-
ing a good unit."
During marching
demonstrations and a
flag ceremony, the
cadets' uniform appear-
ance, demeanor and
teamwork, are inspected.
The NJROTC program
at St. Lucie West Centen-
nial High School began
six years ago and has
received many awards.
This month the cadet's
color guard brought
home yet another award


from state competition in
Orlando.
The unit placed first out
of 67 other units in the
drill competition.
Lt. Cmdr. Ross Mag-
gard, who is retired from
the U.S. Navy and the
program's instructor, said
the unit's enthusiasm,
desire and dedication
brought them first place
in state.
"They really began to
believe in themselves this
year," Lt. Cmdr. Maggard
said. "It's not about us, it's
about them. They had a
goal and went for it."
In closing at the Navy
Day ceremonies, Cmdr.
Hebert addressed the
cadets, parents, school
officials, veterans and
community members and
offered congratulations to
the group for its superior
work, and encouraged
them to continue to work
together as a team.
He also reminded the
crowd that although the
NJROTC program is affili-
ated with the military, it is
not a recruitment pro-
gram for the military, but
rather a program to teach
students about citizen-
ship, patriotism and good
manners.
The SLWCHS Flying
Eagles concert band
played the closing num-
ber as the honored guests,
crowd and cadets were
dismissed to gather for an
inside reception.

REVIEW

Environmental groups oppose
potential river crossings

A proposed bridge over the North Fork of the St.
Lucie River has received thumbs-down from three
environmental groups.
Port St. Lucie officials are looking at four different
routes over the river as part of the Crosstown Park-
way project. The bridge is needed to provide a third
east-west crossing over the St. Lucie River.
The Florida Department of Environmental Pro-
tection, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
have all raised red flags about the proposed cross-
ings. A red flag means a project goes against the
goals of the agencies, as well as have significant
environmental impacts.
The FDEP has since lowered its concerns to an
orange flag, or that it has substantial concerns
about the project.
The bridge over the river, if ultimately approved,
will be the last section of the project to be con-
structed. The six-lane Crosstown Parkway is
planned to connect Interstate 95 to U.S. 1, provid-
ing residents, with a third way to travel east and
west through the city.
The only other east-west corridors in the city are
Prima Vista and Port St. Lucie boulevards.
The city will dispute the flags, and the process is
expected to take 120 days.

Decision made in lawsuit

A U.S. District judge issued a ruling against Liber-
ty Medical Center regarding underpaid bonuses
and overtime.
Judge K. Michael Moore agreed that the medical
supply company should pay more than $467,000
for a lawsuit brought forward by a former employ-
ee. The suit claimed Liberty did not pay her prop-
erly for overtime, as well as bonuses, and that it
violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.
The lawsuit became a class action suit, with 249
people involved.
Liberty Medical has the right to appeal the deci-
sion.

Agency helps brain injury survivor


By ROBIN RINKE
Staff writer
STUART In .1992,
Michael DeMarco was a
vibrant, smart, 18-year-
old, who was captain of
his football team, home-
coming king and was
headed to study environ-
mental engineering in
college then came a
traumatic brain injury.
His life changed in an
instant when a car acci-
dent left him with a trau-
matic brain injury, which
caused him to be in a
coma for five weeks and
in therapy for three years.
Brain injury survivors
often have significant
long-term disabilities
and medical complica-
tions after receiving a


brain injury. The damage
ranges from mild to
severe, depending on the
extent .of damage to the
brain.
Today, at age 32,
Michael lives in Port St.
Lucie with his. parents
and suffers from severe
short-term memory loss
and has trouble walking.
Despite his disabilities,
he is successfully
employed for the city of
Port St. Lucie Parks and
Recreation department.
This is his first part-
time job since the acci-
dent.
Mickey DeMarco said
her son was hired to work
part-time for the city
thanks to Helping People
Succeed, which is a Unit-
ed Way agency in Martin


County that helps people
with disabilities get jobs.
"He likes working there.
Michael is such a positive
and upbeat person he
needs to work," Mrs
DeMarco said. "HPS not
only helped him with get-
ting the job, but helped
him at the job for the first
three months of his
employment."
She said it is obvious
that HPS has Michael's
best interest in mind and
they watch out for him.
Diane Charette, vice
president of community
relations for HPS said
helping the disabled is
what HPS is all about.
"We are proud of
Michael. He now has the
opportunity to be a pro-
ductive citizen," said


Mrs. Charette.
Mrs. DeMarco said HPS
has helped get Michael
out of the house and put
him back into society.
"There is light after a
brain injury. Agencies
like HPS help make it
happen," said Mrs.
DeMarco.
For Michael, life did not
turn out the way he had
planned, but through the
help of his loving family,
his. positive attitude and
agencies like HPS, he is
able to go forward and
enjoy each day.

For more information
on HPS, call Diane
Charette, at (772) 221-

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

Prejudice against private school children
In regard to the new high school program, the Marine
Oceanographic Academy, the St. Lucie County School Dis-
trict has seen fit to demonstrate prejudice against students
with a private school background.
This honors level/dual enrollment program will be taught
on the grounds of Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute,
and is funded with taxpayer dollars.
There are many reasons parents choose a private school
over a public school. These reasons include, but are not lim-
ited to, location and/or proximity to home, the availability of
morning and afternoon daycare, a different method of
teaching (such as Montessori), religious reasons, and daily
after-school tutoring.
Parents of private school children pay twice for their chil-
dren's education. Our taxes support public schools, which
our children are not attending, and we also pay tuition.
It is our choice to decide whether our children attend a
public or private school. Over time, our lives change, our
jobs may change, our family situation may change and our
children may change. These changes influence our choice
of school for our children. All parents want the best for their
children. For board members to discriminate against our
children for attending private school is wrong.
If you are the parent of a child currently attending private
school and you are outraged that the St. Lucie County
School District is discriminating against your children, while
using your tax dollars to fund a public school program, I
urge you to call the St. Lucie County Board District office and
express your opinion to the school board members at (772)
3600, or (772) 429-3914.
Why should our children be discriminated against? Why
should our children be excluded from applying for pro-
grams that our tax dollars are funding?

Buried alive
Recently, in a rant in the paper, the writer notes that much
of the mail he/she receives is from rescue sanctuaries across
the country.
One, asking for money, arrived with a letter from an outfit
in California that said that wild horses are murdered, shot,
and beheaded-stop the massacre.
Another letter, from the local Audubon Society was the
most appalling of all. It was to please send money right
away to rescue local gopher tortoises.
A local developer in St. Lucie County had just received a
state permit to bury gopher tortoises alive.
Imagine! The state of Florida issued permit to bury
gopher tortoises alive, with concrete over their burrows. Of
course, there are no pictures of a dying individual of this
endangered species.
Maybe the county needs the money, as they charge for the
permit.
It seems to me that the developers should be required to

relocate gopher tortoises, with state approval, before they
start construction. *
What is wrong with the people of the United States, who
permit the torturing of wild animals, and burying them
alive?

Political signs still plague us!

While taking a walk in our neighborhood, my husband and
I noticed a pile of trashed political signs still in a vacant lot at
Prima Vista and S. Naranja.
There were 15 signs from last year's election, all from differ-
ent candidates. We took them to a dumpster.
The irony of political candidates littering the roads might
be the issue. But, I prefer to look for a solution.
Why don't we enact laws that require candidates to num-
ber their signs, and then place $2 in an escrow fund for each
one?
After the election, the money will be refunded to them
when they turn them in.
If they are too lazy to do this, then anyone can pick up the
sign and get $2, just like some places pay for returned bot-
tles.
Hometown News photographer
In my opinion, there is someone on your staff that brings
life to your paper.
Mitch Kloorfain has a talent for catching the right angle
and action of the moment.
Nearly all of his pictures depict motion.
I knew him briefly at the mall when he was a freelance
photographer.
Your paper is lucky to have such talent.
I enjoy good photography. I'm only missing two things to
be as good as he is, equipment and talent.
Keep up the good work.

Homeowners insurance
I would like to know who is minding the store at the state


Attorney General's office.
They just had a television news thing about how Gov. Crist.
is going to save us Floridians money on insurance.
Well, he is doing such a good job on working on this that
the major insurance companies are non-renewing over. half
of their homeowners' policies.
This is appalling! It is an insult to the current holders. I
could see if they would not write any new policies for new
business.
Don't allow the insurance companies to cancel or renew
the current holders unless they would be deemed habitual
risk claimers, and make multiple clams in just a few years.
That would be justice.
I am currently with Nationwide Insurance, who, as their TV
commercial says, is on my side. Fooooie!
I've been a policyholder. for more than 12 years. I have
never put in a claim, except for the 2004 hurricanes, which
was a small claim.
I had to suck it up for all the increases they say were justi-
fied for their losses of $1 billion.
My increases from 2004 were over 300 percent. That's a lot
of money. Now if you take that 300 percent increase, times
all the other policyholders, how much money does that add
up to? A whole lot more than you think!
If this letter is published, I would like the readers to write,;'
or e-mail the Attorney General's Office to voice their opin-;
ion, and say, "We don't like what the insurance companies
are doing to our residents."
If they are not going to renew us, and only write homeown-
ers policies to whomever they want, they should lose the
right to sell any policy whatsoever, including auto, life, boats,
homes, compensations, etc., etc., etc., and be thrown out of-
the State of Florida.
Still Laughing

Funny, I still chuckle when I think of the rant and the rave.'
that you put side by side last week, "Gasoline prices rising!,
again," by someone that has way too much time on their!
hands wasting our time having to read how they could:
change the world by voting their way in a few more years.

Letters


Editor's Note: Susan
Mateson, an eighth- grade
language arts teacher at
Northport K-8, is starting
the school's first newspa-
per. To prepare her stu-
dents for the endeavor, she
had them write a letter to
the editor, to teach them
about the exchange of
ideas on the editorial page.
Here is a sampling from
three of her eighth-grade
students.

FCATs unnecessary

Dear Editor:
When FCAT comes along
every year I get so worried!
I never feel really confi-
dent that I am going to do
well. To me, FCAT is
unnecessary, and this year


is the worst because it
matters so much!
If I fail, then my next
year is ruined. I have a 3.5
GPA: I think I deserve to
go to high school apd be
able to take the ,courses I
want to take.
We're already being
tested with benchmarks
every nine weeks, semester
exams, and final exams.
The FCAT is just more that
is put on our plate.
The FCAT brings so much
stress to so many of my
friends, and to me as well.
Who wants to fail? They
should at least give us more
than one chance to pass.it.
The FCAT shouldn't be
held against us. It seems
that there is too much
emphasis on this one test.


I know the teachers feel
pressured, too. I get
nightmares about failing
this test.
In conclusion, I thing the
FCAT is not needed or
shouldn't be s& important.
I know I speak for all the
eighth graders I know and
probably some parents,
too.
Kayla Clark
Port St. Lucie

FCAT pressure
Dear Editor:
It's that time of, year
again, the time all stu-
dents have worked so
hard for all year long.
Yes, it's the Florida
Comprehensive Achieve-


ment test, or, to the
students-the FCAT. It
puts pressure on all of us.
Most students are
extremely nervous and
stressed out because
they're afraid to take the
test. The FCAT makes us
talk about whether or not
we're going to pass. It
seems that's all we talk
about. Every year I go
through the same torture,
I'm nervous, I'm about
sick to my stomach!
We don't understand
why this test is so impor-
tant. It's just unfair that
we have to feel so much
pressure. It's no wonder
some of us don't do good.
Cody Leopold
Port St. Lucie


FCAT Concern

Dear Editor:
My name is Corey
Gruszka and I am a
student at Northport K-8
in eighth grade. I like
school and I like my
language arts class. My
concern for the past
several months has been
the FCAT tests, and the
direction those tests will
take my academic career.
Too much weight is
placed on the FCAT. For
the past few months the
focus of my education
has been on FCAT prepa-
ration.
I'm an intelligent stu-
dent, and I want my
horizons broadened and
my knowledge base


expanded. With so much
emphasis on these tests,
my imagination has been
stifled.
I'm also a band student
and am preparing for high
school band next year.
However, if I don't receive
high marks on these tests,
my band education will be
out of the question because-
low scores would mean a
suspension of elective
classes in place of remedial
or intensive ones.
The pressure on us is just
too much! And what if I
have a bad day on FCAT
day? I'm sunk! Tests are
important, but are they
worth what we're going
through?

Rants & Raves
From page A6
Then you have, "It's a wonderful world," by someone that
seems to be replying to the first person before even reading
their junk.
My conclusion was that I would much rather have the lat-
ter person as a neighbor than the first one!

Bicyclists and dog walkers

I walk my dog often. Most every time I come across a
bicycle rider, he or she does not let me know they are there
until they are on top of my dog and me.
Why not get a bell, ding-dong, or shout "heads up," or
"coming through," well in advance?
It happened again while walking down by the river. A
bicycle rider almost went down trying to avoid hitting us.
When I told the biker to give us a warning sooner, he
replied, "Get a shorter leash."
My dog is walked on a six-foot leash.
While on the subject of people and dogs, I'll add this.
There are still many irresponsible people who think
because they are not on their own property they do not
have to pick up after their animals. Does dog waste spread
disease and contaminate the water supply, if it's not on
your own property?
By the way, I completely agree with the "Televise animal
euthanasia" rant. They show everything else.

Freedom of speech threatened
There are two very important bills that are winding their
way through the U.S. Congress that would seriously inhibit
the average citizen's ability to have freedom of speech.
I want to urge you to contact your congressman, and
express your views on this.
One in the Judiciary committee is House Rule 254. It's
called the Hate Crimes Bill, and I urge you to vote no on
this. This would take away our pastors' ability to preach the
Bible from the pulpit.
Special agenda groups are trying to get this Hate Crimes
Bill passed.
A pastor in Sweden was thrown in jail for six months.
They finally got him out. In Europe they have these Hate
Crimes laws, and you can't say anything about anyone.
The second problem is called the Fairness Doctrine.
They are trying to get that in so that broadcasters have to
give equal time to each view.
That means we would have to get rid of talk radio, and all
the new media that we have that bypass the mainstream
media's slanted views on news items. We wouldn't be able
to get the objective facts that we need.
The Hate Crimes Bill No. 254, in the U.S. House is in the
Judiciary committee right now, the Fairness Doctrine that
would give the Federal Communications commission, and
other bureaucracies, more control over our speech and
thoughts than they have already.
I urge you to make your voices heard.

Concerned for kids

I hear there's an organization called Health E Teens.
Are they really interested in helping children, or making


more money for the drug companies?
If they are truly concerned with the health of our children
why then don't they address the problems of overweight,
and 'under-exercised' teens and school children?
Look at all of the sicknesses this can cause. Younger and
younger children are having heart conditions, diabetes,
and so on.
How about instead of our kids selling cookies and candy
to raise money for their education, they have musical con-
certs and gymnastic shows or plays and sports events to
raise money?
What kind of message are we sending? Why is it always a
drug for a fix?
No wonder we have become a drug society.
I don't think the government should force our children to
be injected with a drug that we don't know what side effects
might occur in the future.

No room?

I notice that you ran the downtown Friday blooming bash
twice- same article, same paper.
Yet, you insist that you don't have room to run the free
library programs that the public can enjoy.
It's very confusing and baffling.
I'll bet you don't print this.

Who will help

We are old, and we have to stay home a lot.
We have a neighbor, who has been known for all of his life,
to be stupid,and'mean. Now he drinks beer all day.
He has a dog that he taunts day and night, to hear it bark.
He keeps it tied to a post, just out of his reach. He plays
with dog toys and balls just to hear the dog bark. He seems
to enjoy it.
When he is tired of the barking, he hits the dog.
The dog crumbles away and cries.
The police, animal control, the Humane Society and all
the local government agencies are not interested.
The neighbors say it is his property, and he can do what he
likes on it.
Any suggestions are very welcome.
Welcome to Florida, it's great weather, but it's the end of
civilization.

FPUA revenue
The paper reported that the Fort Pierce Utility Authority
does an annual transfer of six percent revenue to the city of
Fort Pierce.
That was over $4 million last year. Yet, the Fort Pierce Util-
ity authority threatens that if they don't get over a 50 per-
cent increase in customer receipts in the next five years
they will stop further water connections, and will not close
and relocate the Hutchinson Island waste treatment plant.
That treatment plant is the one that leaks raw sewage into
the Indian River Lagoon. A big leak occurred about five
years ago.
The entire FPUA needs to be investigated by the state
Attorney General, and perhaps a federal investigation is
needed, too.
Meanwhile, the city could give back that 6 percent annual
contribution since its inception. That would be enough
money, to reduce everyone's rates, relocate the sewage
plant and clean up the FPUA total operation.

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers. -

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".


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


EMPLOYMENT
If our culture
sounds like one
that (its with your
ideas on the way
business should
be conducted,
please call us.
561*844 3461
We need to add
to our team in all
departments...
sales, service,
parts, body shop,
and accounting.


Virtually every car dealer Of educa
In Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a Sophistic
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500 much hig
to nearly $1,000. This extra
charge is programmed into
your computer. It has been made illegal in
many states including California, but is still
legal in Florida. The reason you charge this
fee is simply to increase the price of the car
and your profit in such a manner that (t is not
noticed by your customers. This is just plain
wrong. I used to charge a dealer fee ($495)
and when I stopped chargingfit 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.


S
ii


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
n~y 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
;tomers' able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
Ons, level or used car. You can do the
same.
tion and Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
nation are I think of myself as the new
"sheriff' that has come to
er today" "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 will either get angry and
ignore it or not have the courage to follow my
lead. But maybe you will-be the exception. If
you have -any interest in following my lead,
call me anytime. I don't have a secretary and
I don't screen any of my phone calls. I would
love to chat with you about this.
Sincerely,
Earl Stewart Earl Stewart Toyota

We don't just live


here; we're here


Photo courtesy of Coral Pools
Coral Pools, Inc., based in Vero Beach, creates custom pools for customers from Mel-
bourne to Stuart. The company can also show customers a computer-generated, three-
dimensional rendering of what their finished pool will look like.


Coral Pools relies on


experience to deliver dreams


to help.,






MICHAEL P. MCGEE, M.B.A., C.T.F.A.
SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
Before Coral Pools, Inc.
ever breaks ground to
build a new swimming
pool, the company can
show its customers what
the finished product will
look like, from its shape
to the water lapping
against its elaborate tile
work.
"We can actually pro-
vide a three-dimensional
generation, a picture of
what the pool will look
like when it's finished,"
said Shawn Riely, the Vero
Beach-based company's
president.
The compariy designs
and builds pools, as well
as screen enclosures,
waterfalls and other


extras. Its motto touts
that it's been "Building
quality local pools for 15-
years."
Mr. Riely, who has near-
ly two decades of experi-
ence in the pool industry,
said the ability to show
customers how their fin-
ished pool will appear is a
bonus.
"We can show them
how we'll turn their back-
yard into their play-
ground," he said.
To maintain the level of
quality takes experience,
Mr. Riely said.
Additionally, the com-
pany does not employ
subcontractors, Mr. Riely
said, allowing Coral Pools
to produce a superior
product in a shorter
amount of time because


it sends the same experi-
enced workers out each
day.
Because of its experi-
enced team, Coral Pools
can customize pools to
customers' wishes. Pools
can be constructed in
any shape, Mr. Riely said.
His techniques have
proven successful: Coral
Pools in on track to con-
struct about 200 pools
this year, in communities
ranging from Stuart to
Melbourne.
"Anything they want, we
can build," Mr. Riely said.

."Serving the Treasure Coast Since 2001"


The recent stagna-
tion in the housing
market may have
you feeling like there's no
good news in real estate,
but if you are looking to
buy or refinance your
home, now could be a
great time.
Reasonable loan rates,
combined with the
slackening in the resi-
dential market, are
creating great opportuni-
ties for homebuyers.
Whether you are look-
ing for a new home for
your family or a long-
term investment proper-
ty, today's low rates and
fast closings are maki ,
standard fixed-rate
mortgages more appea.
ing than ever.
If you already own,
refinancing with a 15-
year, fixed-rate loar can
help you cash in on omene
of the equity you've built
in recent years, or pro-
tect you from future
spikes in an Adjustable
Rate Mortgage.
With so many mortgage
options to choose from,
finding the right one for
your situation can feel a
little like finding the
perfect shade of white
paint.
Here's how to sort it all
out:
*Think ahead -
Consider your plans for
the future, and look for a
home loan that fits for
now and for the years
ahead.
Fixed-rate conventional
mortgages are still the
most popular.

personal style have more
importance than you
might think.
*Staying put or moving
on -Will you remain in
this house for a long
time? Or, will you want a
bigger, smaller, or better
house later? If you are
staying put, you'll want
to get the best long-term
mortgage rate. Fixed rate
mortgages dominate the
markett more than ever
now, and they are the
best option if you expect
to stay in your house for
many years. If you do
plan to move again, you
may be better off with a
shorter-term mortgage.
*How long to pay -
Most homebuyers
assume they'll get a 30-
year fixed-rate mortgage.
The rate is locked-in so
it will not change for the
life of the loan. There arc
also popular Adjustable
Rate Mortgage loans,
which can be amortized
during a period of 15
years.
This lets you start out at
a lower interest rate, and
build up equity in your
home sooner.


*Borrow for a shorter-
term If you expect to
move within five years,
and can qualify for a
slightly lower rate, a five-
year Adjustable Rate
Mortgage is for you. By
amortizing your loan
over fifteen years you pay
off the loan faster,
translating into more
resources that you can
invest. This is especially
good if you have college
expenses coming up or
plan to retire within 15
years.
*Plan for long-term
financial goals Look at
your mortgage as a form
of fixed savings. The
payback comes in the
form of a mortgage
interest deduction on
your taxes. Consult your
tax adviser and your
financial institution for
ways to maximize your
resources for your
financial plans.
*Find a lender -
Shopping for a mortgage
is like shopping for any
other large purchase. You
can save a considerable
amount of money if you
take the time to do your
homework. Look for a
lender familiar with the
many options available
today, and consider
working with a financial
institution in your
immunityy Choose a
Lder familiar with the
local market as well as
your personal needs, and
who can help you get the
best deal for your situa-
tion.

ment Board of the Trea-
sure Coast, Aegis Com-
munications Group and
Arbor Employment and
Training earned the 2007
Theodore E. Small Work-
force Partnership Award.
The award, presented
annually by the National
Association of Workforce
Boards, recognizes work-
force boards and their
partners for innovative
solutions for issues in


their communities.
Due to reduced funds,
the Workforce Develop-
ment Board of the Trea-
sure Coast closed two
career centers, one of
which was the Port St.
Lucie Center, operated by
Arbor Employment and
Training and used by
Aegis, a private employer.
Communication among
the three resulted in a
One-Stop Career Center
within Aegis' facilities. It
provides opportunity for
local residents to get the
assistance they need to
find and keep jobs.


Aegis pays infrastruc-
ture costs and provides
receptionist support
while the workforce sys-
tem provides staffing,
materials and supplies.
The partnership
decreases Aegis' cost for
recruiting new employ-
ees and reduces turnover
and unemployment
claims. The Workforce
Board is able to reduce
the cost per customer
served and placed, allow-
ing the investment of
workforce funds in other
ways that improve and
expand the local work-

A .Port St. Lucie man
who was sentenced to life
in prison for the kidnap-
ping and killing of an 81-
year-old woman is seek-
ing a new trial.
Victor Brancaccio, 30, is
currently serving his sen-
tence at the Columbia
Correctional Institution
in Lake City for the June
1993 kidnapping and
murder of Mollie Mae
Frazier.
Mr. Brancaccio beat Ms.
Frazier with his portable
radio after she criticized
him for playing his music
too loud. After beating
her to death, Mr. Bran-
caccio set her body on
fire and then covered her
in red paint before show-


ing Ms. Frazier's body to
several friends.
During the original
trial, defense lawyers
argued that mental ill-
ness, brain damage and
side effects of the antide-
pressant Zoloft caused
Mr. Brancaccio to com-
mit the crime.


There are plans from
the defense to present
new evidence about the
side effects of Zoloft.
A hearing on the new
trial matter is scheduled
for April 23 and 24.

Since its inception a
year ago, the partnership
increased the local work-
force placement rate by
15 percent, cut the cost
per customer served by
53 percent and reduced
the per placement cost by
67 percent, according to a
press release.
Carol Frischkorn, chair-
woman for the Workforce
Board, and Gerald Lewis,
human resources manag-
er for Aegis, accepted the
award in Washington,

An advance directive gives
health care workers and
family members a clear pic-
ture of a person's medical
wishes in the event of a
debilitating illness or acci-
dent.
"The advance directive is
important to have so that
you can receive the care you
want," said Barbara
Edwards, a clinical nurse
leader at St. Lucie Medical
Center. "Sometimes you
can't speak for yourself
because of a heart attack,
stroke or car accident, and
some people are very specif-
ic in that they don't want any
heroic efforts to save their
lives."
Ms. Edwards cited the Terri
Schiavo case as a prime
example for why people
should have an advanced
directive.
Mrs. Schiavo was a St.
Petersburg woman who was
comatose and on a feeding
tube. Her husband wanted
the tube removed, saying his
wife did not want to live


connected to machines,
while, her parents main-
tained their daughter did
not want to die.
The case eventually went
to the Pinellas County Cir-
cuit Court, which ruled the
tube could be removed. Mrs.
Schiavo, who was 42 at the
time, was removed from life
support on March 18, 2005,
and died several weeks later
on March 31.
'"Advance directives takes
the pressure off spouses and
family," .Ms. Edwards said.
"Every person 18 years or
older should have one."
While most, people do not
want to think of the possibil-
ities of a debilitating illness
or accident while they are
healthy, Ms. Edwards said it
is important to create a
directive while in good
health.
"There is no stress and no
feeling of being pushed into
a decision where you can't
think of the implications,"

Boulevard
From page AT
Oravec, assistant city
manager and community
redevelopment director.
Mr. Terpening told
about the plans for
improving Westmoreland
Boulevard. It will be
widened to four lanes
between Port St. Lucie
Boulevard and where the
Riverwalk South devel-
opment is going, and will
remain two lanes td the
south of Riverwalk. Side-
walks and bike paths are
included in the plans.
The proposal for the.
Riverwalk South project
includes botanical gar-
dens and a 156-room
hotel, as well as a restau-
rant and retail business-
es. Innkeepers USA and
Gladstone Realty of West
Palm Beach will be devel-
oping the nearly 10 acres
of Riverwalk property.
The developers will
foot most of the bill of
the $5.8 million in
improvements, with
additional money com-
ing from the sale by the
city of the Riverwalk
property.
Westmoreland
improvements include
creating two left turn
lanes, hopefully easing
traffic turning west onto
Port St. Lucie Boulevard,
Mr. Terpening said.
There are an estimated
10,200 cars a day using
Westmoreland Boulevard
as a cut-through from
U.S. 1 to Port St. Lucie
Boulevard..
"This project will help
eliminate the backups,"
Mr. Terpening said.
Drainage. will be a
major part of the project,
Mr. Terpening said,
which will help the
health of the North Fork
of the St. Lucie River.
"Currently, Westmore-
land rainwater drains
directly into the St. Lucie
River," he said. "With this
project, we will develop a
drainage system to elimi-
nate that because .the
city is dedicated to
improving water quality
of the river."
Once construction
begins, which is expect-
ed to start .in May, it is
'planned to close West-
moreland Boulevard
between Port St. Lucie
and Morningside boule-
vards, open only to resi-
dents who live in the
area. It is proposed to
detour traffic westbound
on Westmoreland to
Morningside Boulevard
and out to Port St. Lucie
Boulevard, which caused
concern for many resi-
dents.
"This is going to be a
nightmare," said Glenna
Holsersen, who lives on
Morningside Boulevard.
She said her road
already has a high vol-
ume of traffic from The
Saints Golf Course,
Southport Middle School
and the Morningside
Library Branch, and that
lives will be endangered
from people speeding
through the area.
"I suspect there will be
a lot of problems
because we will not have
just our normal traffic,"
Ms. Holsersen said.
Another resident, Ger-
ald Lenard, was con-
cerned about the amount
of traffic that will contin-
ue through the area. He
disagrees with plans for
the project.
"This city is trying to
make this a thoroughfare
for everybody," Mr.


Lenard said. "I pick up
trash every day from
people driving through
and don't care. I don't
think this was thought
out all that well as to
where to put all those
cars."
Message boards will
begin informing drivers
of the road closing 45
days before Westmore-
land Boulevard closes.

Taste of

St. Lucie

slated for

March 21

BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE Good
food for a good cause will
be on the menu at Tradi-
tion in western Port St.
Lucie.
The seventh annual A
Taste of St. .Lucie takes
place next week, Wednes-
day, March 21, at T"radi-
tion. The event showcases
local restaurants and the
best foods they have to
offer.
It is the major fundraiser
for two nonprofit organiza-
tions dedicated to helping
children, the Boys & Girls
Club and Big Brothers Big
Sisters of St. Lucie County.
"This is such a fun event,
and it is for two wonderful
causes," said Judi Miller,
executive director of Big
Brothers Big Sisters.
Restaurants set up
booths around the Tradi-
tion Town Square and serve
up the best dishes for
attendees to sample and
enjoy. With so many
restaurants participating
this year, Mrs. Miller hopes
it will be a phenomenal
success.
"This one is going to be
even better than last year,"
she said. "The community
support we've had is just
awesome. We have people
tell us that this is the event
to go to."
Last year's event had 43
restaurants participate,
and raised $100,000 for the
two organizations. Mrs.
Miller said the goal for this
year is $125,000, which is
split between Boys & Girls
Club and Big Brothers Big
Sisters.
The two groups have
always had a good working
relationship, but it wasn't
until seven years ago that
they joined forces and
resources to raise money.
"It is a little unique," said
Norman Penner, executive
director of the Boys & Girls
Club. "We had a great feel
for one another already,
and when we brought this
to them they were thrilled."
Tasting events such as A
Taste of St. Lucie is a typical
fundraiser for Big Brothers
Big Sisters, but the St. Lucie
County organization did
not feel it had the man-
power to create a success-
ful event until the Boys &
Girls Club stepped in to
help.
"When we combined
forces, it just clicked," Mr.

Caring
From page Al
ple in the community to
come out and see what
our agencies and the
United Way does."
The United Way of St.
Lucie County is a non-
profit organization that
serves as an umbrella for
other nonprofit agencies
in the county. The United
Way connects people with
agencies that can help
them with certain situa-
tions in their lives, such as
needing a place to live or
children's services.
This is the first time the
United Way has organized
such an 'event, which is
done by other United
Ways across the country.
Currently, Day of Caring
is open only to business-
es. Mrs. Lundstrom said
they would like to include
residents in future events,
but citizens can still help
out with this Day of Car-
ing.
"We hope to have some
materials donated or
money donated to pur-
chase materials," she said.
"About 85 percent of the
agencies have the materi-
als, and we hope the com-
munity can help with the
rest the best they can."
She added that if this
Day of Caring is success-
ful, the United Way will
look to hold the event sev-
eral times a year.
One agency on the list is
the Children's Home Soci-
ety. The agency's Wave-
crest building is in need of
kitchen repair and paint-
ing. The building is used
to shelter 11 to 17 year-
old children who are
removed from abusive
homes, as well as housing
runaways.
"This has been on our
list of things to do for
quite a while," said Patri-
cia Jenkins, director of
development for Chil-
dren's Home Society.
"This is the answer to our
prayers. It is important we
have this work done
because children live
there, even if for only a
couple of weeks, but they
need to be somewhere
that looks nice. It helps
because they know we
care for them."
The Children's Home
Society has used the
building for 15 years.
Another agency with a
project on the United
Way's list is Treasure
Coast Hospices. Since the
organization is getting
ready to open a new
building, there are no
repairs.or painting need-
ed. Instead, the staff is
asking something a little
different. ,
"We named our project,
Friends with Flowers, and
we would like members of
the community to donate
flowers from their gar-
dens or florists to donate
flowers and drop them off
at the new hospice house
on Midway Road," said
Cynthia Warren, commu-
nications manager for
Treasure Coast Hospices.
"Day of Caring happens at
the same time patients.
move in and we thought it
would be great for them
to have flowers."
Treasure Coast Hos-
pices will supply vases,
and nurses will deliver
flowers to patients in the
16-bed facility.
Both agencies support
the Day of Caring the
United Way is holding.
"I think this is a won-


derful thing because it
brings the community
together," Ms. Warren
said. "I am so proud they
started this."
Ms. Jenkins said the
event will help raise
awareness of needs in the
nonprofit community.
"I'm glad they are doing
it because our community
certainly has a need," Ms.
Jenkins said. "We have a
lot of wonderful people in
our community to volun-
teer and help out."

Treasure Coast artist overcomes

adversity with beautiful results


BY RITA HART
Staff writer


JENSEN BEACH When
you walk into Lisa
Woodard's Backstreet
Gallery in Jensen Beach, it is
obvious she is an artisan
with a gift.
What is not so obvious is
that Mrs. Woodard lives with
almost constant pain in the
very hands and arms that
create her unique glass
pieces.
Mrs. Woodard was only 21
when she and the man who
would become her husband
were in a car accident. Mrs.

Woodward's arm was resting
on the open window when
the car flipped over, crush-
ing her hand in the process.
When she woke up three
days later, the thumb of her
right hand was gone, and
the knuckle on her index fin-
ger was crushed, perma-
nently rendering that finger
useless.
Now 52, Mrs. Woodard has
undergone multiple surger-
ies ever since, including
unsuccessful attempts to
reattach the thumb and to
use part of her pelvic bone
to create a new thumb.
Because her upper
extremeties are overused in
order to compensate for
these injuries, she has devel-
oped additional problems
with her wrists and shoul-
ders, including severe pain
that prevents her from
sleeping in any position
except on her back.
Rather than feel sorry for
.herself, 17 years ago Mrs.
Woodard decided to take a
class in Port St. Lucie on how
to make stained glass.
"It's either black or white,"
said Mrs. Woodard of learn-
ing the new craft. "You either
love it or you hate it."
Mrs. Woodard loved it.
"But after 10 years, I lost the
learning curve," she said.
"There was nothing left to

will use their share of the
money for a reading pro-
gram and its mentoring
program for children of
prisoners, Mrs. Miller said.
The Boys & Girls Club will
use the money to cover
expenses at its three cen-
ters in the county, Mr. Pen-
ner said.
The event has grown
since the first one, which
had about 20 restaurants.
Now organizers are aiming
to have 60 restaurants by
the event. At press time, 53.
restaurants had signed up
to participate.
"This would never hap-
pen without the support of
the restaurants," Mr. Pen-
ner said. "They really go all
out and put out the best
food they can."
Annie Hall, owner of
Brewer's Cafe in downtown
Fort Pierce, has participat-
ed in A Taste of St. Lucie
every year. She said the
event is a great place to
introduce her business to
the community.
"It's a blast, and we get so
much exposure," Ms. Hall
said. "I can't say enough
about Boys & Girls Club
and Big Brothers Big Sis-
ters."
Although she has not
completed her menu for
the event, Ms. Hall said res-


idents can expect to taste
her crab cakes and possibly
a dessert.
While there are many
restaurants at the event
that have been a part of A'
Taste of St. Lucie for several
years, there are several,
restaurants participating.
for the first time.
"This is something that is'
time for us to do," said Bob
Bagamery, pizza manager
for Roma Bakery and Pizze-'
ria in Port St. Lucie. "The
town is moving west and a!
lot of people don't know'
we're over here."
Roma Bakery and Pizzeria?
has been open in St. Lucie
County since 1973, with its,
northeastern Port St. Lucie
location open since 1981.
In addition to food, there
will be music by Port St.
Lucie blues band, Hurri-
cane Hawk & The Invaders;
and a wine tasting tent.

A Taste of St. Lucie is
scheduled for 5:30 p.m. to
8:30 p.m. March 21.

learn. So I bought a kiln,
took a class in Lake Worth on
working with fused glass,
and the learning curve just
hasn't stopped."
Fused glass is also known
as warm glass to those who
work with it. The glass is
melted at about 1500
.degrees in a kiln, and then
slowly cooled. Different col-
ors of glass can be stacked
together, or the glass can be
colored using enamels,
which are crushed glass in
the form of a powder.
"I never paint ,the glass,"
said Mrs. Woodard. "It's all
crushed glass powder."
Mrs. Woodard's artistry
and imagination have
turned fused glass into dec-
orative dishes, wall hang-.
ings, jewelry and even sinks.
"My sinks are not ternm-
pered," said Mrs. Woodard.
"If you scratch them, they.
won't fall into 100 pieces like'
tempered glass."
Although Mrs. Woodard's'
shop is in Jensen Beach, the
studio where she creates her
pieces is in the backyard of
her home in Port. St. Lucie. -

There, he was responsible for 13,000 medical personnel

Ms. Edwards said. "We
want people to think
about this ahead of time."
Medical personnel will
follow a written directive
unless a patient says oth-
erwise.
"It can be revoked by
word," Ms. Edwards said.
"You can say that you
don't want them to honor
your directive."
Mrs. Pack, who found
the time to write her
directive while waiting for
her husband to get out of
surgery, said it is impor-
tant for everyone to have
one.
"I absolutely think it
saves you a lot of prob-
lems, as well as the hospi-
tal and doctors a lot of
problems," Mrs. Pack
said. "I think everybody
should be an organ donor
and have a living will."

Dr.J
From page Al.
It would not be the last
time he'd see battlefield
trauma in Iraq. -

Iraq, part II

As the years passed, he
took part in the Bosnia and
Kosovo operations, started
a private practice in Palm
Beach County and left the
Reserves for the Army
-National Guard.
He opted to shut down
his part of the practice in
2002 to help his friend,
Army Gen. Elder Granger,
then the Commander of
the European Regional
Medical Command. Gen.
Granger personally asked
Col. Jazarevic to ready
Landstuhl U.S. Army Med-
ical Center in Germany to
handle large numbers of
trauma and critical care
patients, a need that could
arise should the U.S. go to
war with Iraq.
Colonel Jazarevic
expected to be on active
duty for one year. Three
and a half passed.
Commanding a forward
surgical team in Iraq in
2003, he said it was clear
the delivery of medical
care was completely inad-
equate.
"The dynamics of war-
fare had changed," he said.
"We were geared for linear
warfare, where you know
where the frontline is. But
this -is a war where things
were happening every-
where. We had to reorgan-
ize the medical care."
In addition to being
chief of the trauma and
vascular surgery divisions'
at Landstuhl during that
time, Col. Jazarevic was
also director of clinical
operations for the Army,
Navy and Air Force in Iraq,
where he took shrapnel


from a mortar.
Wearing these hats, the
colonel found himself in
the position to help reor-
ganize battlefield medial
care, tying together the
policies, procedures, sys-
tems, logistical support
and communications of
healthcare delivery at
Landstuhl with the Air
Force-controlled evacua-
tion system out of Iraq and
the medical facilities in
Kuwait and Iraq.
"I believe we as doctors
saved lots more people by
reorganizing the medical
system and surgical care
on the battlefield then we
would save in three careers
operating one by one like I
do now," he said.
His experiences from the
Army are what Dr. Jazare-
vic, known as "Dr. J"
around Lawnwood, said
he feels differentiate him
from other trauma leaders
in the country.
"That's what I bring to
the table here," he said.
"There are 30 or 40 other
people in the country who
could put a trauma pro-
gram together. It's not
rocket science. But what I
brought was this wartime
leadership and organiza-
tional experience. I want
this system here in St.
Lucie County to be the
best system in Florida, not
only in-hospital care, but
pre- and post- hospital
care, education and out-
reach programs. I want
this to be the model trau-
ma program for the entire
state."

patients in St. Lucie Coun-
ty are sent to Saint Mary's

Lisa Woodard of Port St. Lucie removes a large glass bowl from the kiln in the workshop
in her home. Mrs. Woodard owns Backstreet Gallery in Jensen Beach.


Artist
From page A 16
Woodard explains that it is
called "jillion unity."
"Those plates are made of
one millimeter strings of
glass, and I use four layers,"
said Mrs. Woodard. "There
are a jillion ways you can
unite them."
When looking at the
unique pieces she has creat-
ed, it's difficult to- under-
stand the struggle it must
have been for her to learn
her craft from people whose
hands work differently than
hers do.
Dr. Robert Forster is Mrs.
Woodard's orthopaedic sur-
geon.
"It's remarkable how much
she can do with so many
hurdles to overcome," said
Dr. Forster. "She has the hur-
dle of not having a thumb;
and an finger that doesn't


work. And yet she still con-
tinues to forge ahead, and
she is doing intricate,
demanding, manual dexter-
ity tasks."
As a result of these chal-
lenges, when someone first
suggested to Mrs. Woodard
that she attempt to make
jewelry from glass, she ini-
tially resisted.
"I don't know why I fought
it so hard. It's the dexterity
thing. But once I find my
own way, I'm okay. I can't
watch how someone else
does it and do it the way they
do."
To emphasize this point,
Mrs. Woodard explained
that when her three children
were little, her attempts to
teach them how to tie their
shoelaces was frustrating.
"I had to use my middle
finger to try and do it," said
Mrs. Woodard.
But because her children
had ten fingers and she did
not, "Eventually, I had to
have someone else teach
them," she said.


Mrs. Woodard said that
lately she is in constant pain:
Because her wrists were
used so hard to compensate
for the loss of fingers, she
eventually had to have the
bones in her wrists fused. ,
."I'm sort of arm chal-
lenged," said Mrs. Woodard,
"but I'm also strong-willed.",
Mrs. Woodard said she
doesn't ever see herself retir-'
ing from her craft.
"I don't think ofit as work,"
she said. "If it was work, or
mass production, I couldn't
do it."
Explaining that the fused
glass doesn't always turn out
the way that she originally
had in mind, Mrs. Woodard
said, "Sometimes there are
happy mistakes. It's what the
glass wants to do."

Melbourne for care, which
he described as "absolutely
,absurd."
"To evacuate these peo-
ple to the south or north
'out of the county is simply
,substandard medical
'care," he said.
,. He compares the situa-
tion to what would happen
if there were no police or
firefighters in St. Lucie
'County, but instead only
,coverage from Melbourne
:and Palm Beach County
:officers and firefighters.
"The public wouldn't
;stand for that for five min-
utes," he said. "But when it
'comes to the care of their
very life, when their life
may depend on 10 or 20 or
:30 minutes, somehow they
:don't think it's unusual or
inappropriate to go an
'hour north or an hour
:south to get the care they
should get right here."
- Dr. Jazarevic is currently
hiring surgeons to com-
plete his trauma team, and
Lawnwood is expected to
begin functioning as a
trauma center by Sept. 30.
For that to happen, the
hospital is not only
required to have surgeons
just on-call, but they must
be physically in the hospi-
tal 24/7, waiting for trau-
ma patients to arrive, said
hospital spokeswoman
Beth Williams.
"Today,, if you come to
any emergency depart-
ment on the Treasure
Coast, there will be a day in
the month when there's no
neurosurgeon on call," she
said. "When the trauma
center's here, that won't
happ.en. The trauma cen-
ter is going to benefit


everyone. It's going to
enhance the level and the
quality of care that we have
access to on a daily basis in
our community."
It could also. enhance
care in communities thou-
sands of miles away in the
Mid-East, since Dr. Jazare-
vic said he wants Lawn-
wood's program to be a
lead agent for training
Reserve and National
Guard medical troops.
Though he doesn't feel
he'll have to return to Iraq,
and though he doesn't par-
ticularly want to go back
and leave his family again,
Dr. Jazarevic said he would
return if asked again.
"When you have that
experience and that
knowledge, you owe it to
the sons and daughters of
our nation," he said. "I
don't answer in the end to
the surgeon general of the
Army. I don't answer to the
president of the United
States. In the end, you
answer to moms and dads
of the soldiers that are
there. You have to look
them in the eye one day."

the civilian World, 'Dr.
Jazarevic said he doesn't
have. any plans to leave the
military in the near future.
He said he feels experi-
enced wartime doctors can
change the Army medical
system, which in past
weeks has received a black
eye as reports surfaced
about neglected soldiers
and inadequate care at
Walter Reed Army Medical
Center.
Dr. Jazarevic has done
residency training at Wal-


ter Reed, and was asked to
be the chair of the surgery
department there starting
this spring. He turned it
down.
"Accepting positions of
those sorts in the military,
brings all the responsibility
and accountability without
any authority," he said.
"The whole problem with
Walter Reed and the entire
military medical corps is
that the people in posi-
tions of power are not peo-
ple who've been deployed
and have wartime experi-
ence. They're people
who've come to power by
political correctness."
With the explosion of the
Walter Reed situation, he
hopes the Army will be
pressured to bring in new
medical leadership.
"Something like Walter
Reed had to happen in
order to purge the Army
medical department of
leaders whose experience
is running various desks,
rather than wartime expe-
rience. The current leader-
ship should be replaced in
the next year by colonels
and brigadier generals
who have now literally
spent years deployed dur-
ing wartime."
Far removed from the
war now, Dr. Jazarevic
resides .in Stuart' on
Hutchinson Island with his
wife, Lori, and young
daughter Gabriella, living
the American Dream.
"America is a dream to
most foreigners," he said.
"Europe has been Ameri-
canized by pop culture for
many years. When you live
in Europe, to come to
America is a big thing. To
live in America is an
unimaginable thing."

tence, right on cue his cell

Vitamin D

makes

calcium

work

This week's column,
which was planned
weeks ago, is about
vitamin D and calcium.
This seems to be a
timely subject since
recently, my good friend,
Arlene Borg, "The Gram-
my Guru," wrote in her
column about taking too
much calcium.
I just wanted to remind
readers that no one
should stop taking
medicine or supplements
without talking to a
doctor.
Women who are older
than 50 should talk to the
doctor about testing for
bone density and osteo-
porosis.
Most importantly,
everyone should remem-
ber that with medicine,
one size does not fit all.
You need to have your
own calcium needs
evaluated and take
appropriate measures
that are right for you. Do
not stop taking medica-
tions or supplements
because you read about it
somewhere.
As part of ongoing
monitoring for osteoporo-
sis, my doctor recently
ordered a test of my
body's level of vitamin D.
I was surprised, because
I didn't know of any
connection between
vitamin D levels and a risk
of osteoporosis.
I then learned that the
body uses vitamin D to
absorb calcium and that
many people who take
calcium supplements or
medication to treat
osteoporosis are not
getting all of the benefits

I See ALIVE B3


Today we're going to make
two of my favorite
vegetables and a straw-
berry angel dessert from Linda
Ratcliffe who has been using
this recipe since 1979.
When I asked for a dessert
made with angel food cake,
gelatin, strawberries and
possibly ice cream, I had no
idea how many variations
there were out there.
My first veggie choice is
broccoli rabe (pronounced
rob), also called rappini, a
green that tastes nothing like
regular broccoli. It has a
slightly bitter, peppery flavor.
The next choice is eggplant,
which in my opinion, is a
vegetable that needs a lot of
help to make it palatable. If
you've ever tried steamed
eggplant, you know what I
mean. It contains a great deal
of iron and can be bitter.
When eggplant is fried, it
absorbs oil like a sponge. If
eggplant is salted, the salting
removes the bitterness and
changes the oil-absorbing
properties.
Enjoy! See you next week.

BROCCOLI RABE OR
RAPPINI
(Pronounced rob)
Serves 4
This recipe is as good the
next day as it is the day you
make it. Also, once prepared, it
can be frozen.
1 bunch rappini


2 large cloves garlic,
cut up
1 to 2 tablespoons
extra virgin olive
oil or canola oil
Salt and pepper
Crushed red pepper
flakes (optional)


Wash rappini.
Cut leaves up, cut
off flowerettes. Peel
tough stem and cut
* up. Lightly brown
garlic in oil. Add greens. If
there is not enough water on
the leaves, add 1/4 cup more.
Season with salt and pepper
and a few shakes of crushed
red pepper, if you choose.
Cook covered until tender,
about 10 minutes.

1/ 2 cup dry white wine

1 cup chicken broth
Salt, pepper and crushed red
pepper to taste


Several sprigs fresh parsley,
chopped or 1 teaspoon
dried
1/2 pound angel hair or
penne pasta (cooked)
Parmesan cheese, grated
Cut up broccoli as
explained in recipe above.
Brown sausages in skillet,
pricking them occasionally to
release fat. For a lower-fat
choice, brown sausages in a
350-degree oven on racks. Slice
sausage in bite-size pieces.
When almost done, remove
sausage from pan and set
aside. Add oil and garlic to pan,
let brown until golden. Add
broccoli.
Cover to cook slightly. Raise
heat and add wine. Cook until
wine reduces slightly. Add
broth, seasonings, parsley and
sausages.
Cook covered, until broccoli
is tender and sausages are
cooked thoroughly.
Serve over pasta, sprinkle
with cheese.

BRACES
Q: My son needs braces. Are they painful?
A: Braces take a little getting used to, but most people do not have a problem
with them. Certainly there's a period of soreness or discomfort after they first go
in. That may last for a week or so. The techniques and materials used in modern
braces have gone a long way toward reducing discomfort. Your son could even ,'
make a fashion statement if he wanted. Braces come in a variety of colors, for il' 'I
instance. Or they can be made of material that leaves them barely visible. Remind
your son that when he's done with braces, he's going to have a nice smile..
Incidentally, parents sometimes question whether braces will interfere with their child's athletic or
musical career. The short answer is that braces should not'interfere. For athletes, special
orthodontic mouthguards are available and for musicians who play wind instruments there is also a
protective appliance available. Talk to your dentist about your concerns. Your dentist will most
likely refer you to an orthodontist, a dentist who specializes in installation of braces.

From page B1


they should because of
low levels of vitamin D.
The Osteoporosis
Society of Canada esti-
mates that vitamin D
increases calcium absorp-
tion by as much as 30 to 80
percent.
Organizations in the
United Sates have report-
ed similar findings.
The Women's Health
Initiative, a major 15-year
research program that
looked into the causes of
death and disability in
post-menopausal women,
recommended that
women take at least 1,000-
1,500 mg of calcium daily
and 400 to 800 IU of
vitamin D daily.
Other studies have
suggested that women
older than 70 may need
even more.
You should talk to your
health care provider
about your individual
needs.
Vitamin D has long been
known as "the sunshine
vitamin" because most of
us obtain what we need
from the sun.
You can also get vitamin
D from eggs, fatty fish,
and cereal and meat
fortified with vitamin D.
However, even those
sources may not be
enough.
Only a blood test to
check the level of vitamin
D in the body can deter-
mine whether you are
getting enough vitamin D.
In my case, the level was
quite low, which meant
that the treatment I was
getting to prevent osteo-
porosis was not doing the
best job it could.
My doctor, Darrell Fiske,
a rheumatologist in
Stuart, added a vitamin D
supplement to my daily
regimen.
I asked him to explain
why this was important.
"Without adequate
vitamin D, calcium
resorption (or reabsorb-
tion) is decreased;" he
said.
Recent studies have
shown that 52 percent of
post-menopausal women.
on drug therapy for
osteoporosis had low
levels of vitamin D,
highlighting the fact that
even women who take
vitamin D supplements
may have insufficient
levels to prevent osteo-
porosis.
At a recent meeting on
bone density research,
vitamin D experts sug-
gested that we label I
vitamin D levels less than
20 mg/ml as deficient, 20
to 30 as insufficient and
30 to 60 as sufficient."
Dr. Fiske, who is also the'
medical director for the
Stuart office of Radiant
Research, a national
company that conducts
clinical trials for the
pharmaceutical industry,
put to rest the myth that
because we live in Florida,
we get enough vitamin D
from the sun.
"There now appears to
be quite a variation in the
efficiency of individual


vitamin D conversion
from sunlight," he said. "A
recent study of Hawaiian
surfers revealed that 25
percent had low vitamin
D levels."
This is a lot of informa-
tion to take in, but the
important message is that
if you are concerned about
osteoporosis, and espe-
cially if you are receiving
treatment for it, you
should talk to your doctor
about whether you need to


N:1Y


take additional vitamin D.
As with every supple-
ment, itis not something
to do on your own, as you
may not need it. Talk to
your doctor.

Windows will always be working behind the scenes


W ndows can get
overwhelmed
from time to

I'm not saying that
Windows can be over-

what this week's column is
about.
What I'm referring to are
the times when, for no
apparent reason, Win-


dows just stops function-

do anything.
What most people don't
realize is just how much
stuff is going on in the

Every part of the com-

to the mouse to the
monitor, has a little

Microsoft's New C
is Likely to Increase Ha
(Syndicated News) As the worldwide gen-
eral availability date for Microsoft's Windows
Vista system quickly approaches, computer
users around the globe are anticipating the
increased hardware requirements that the
system will need. Graphics cards, increased
CPU size, and larger RAM requirements are
just a few of the many areas that experts are
warning users about. This is especially note-
worthy for businesses, who -will likely be
forced to make the upgrade in order to
remain competitive whether they want to or
not. The issue, says Fast-teks' Cari Diaz, is
less focused on the Vista system itself than it
is on installation.
"Hardware installation especially on a
large scale in the case of businesses can
become a huge headache if it's not done
properly," says Diaz. "It's advisable for hard-
ware to be installed by professionals."
Fast-teks (http://fastteks.com) is a nation-
wide, on-site computer service company
which specializes in both residential and
business hardware installation and mainte-
nance. They offer a free systems check on all
service visits, to see what each computer
needs in order to run Vista. Companies such
as Fast-teks have put together several rec-
ommendations for consumers interested in
running the Windows Vista system, many of
which are aimed at upgrading existing sys-
tems on PC's.
1) Download and run Windows Upgrade
Advisor. The Upgrade Advisor examines a
.computer and provides a summary of the
Windows Vista versions that can be run on
that computer. The report is also convenient
to have on-hand to show your installation
professional.
2) Check your CPU. Anything below 800
MHz is too low for Windows Vista to run
properly. Your local Fast-teks technician can
advise you on upgrades if you fall below
minimum requirements.


background that is in
charge of how that partic-
ular part functions.
And they all have to run
together harmoniously.
I'm not talking about a
few little programs or
drivers, there are literally
thousands of things going
on in the background at
any given second and
sometimes Windows can
get overwhelmed.


operatingg System ID
irdware Requirements
3) Examine your computer's memory. 512
MB of RAM is minimum; most users will
want at least 1 GB of system RAM to ade-
quately run Vista. Fast-teks can assist in
choosing a memory upgrade, and can have
it installed on your computer within min-
utes.
4) Verify hard drive capacity on your com-
puter. Windows Vista requires a hard drive of
at least 40 GB in size, including 15 GB of free
space.
5) Check your graphics adapter. "Many
people are unfamiliar with graphics
adapters," says Diaz, "which is unfortunate
because a big requirement of Vista is the
graphics portion of the program. Fast-teks
can assess your computer and provide ade-
quate upgrades in order to eliminate any
confusion."
6) Look for a DVD drive on your computer.
If you don't have one, you won't be able to
install Windows Vista. If you don't have one,
however, there's no need to fret. "DVD drives
are something that our technicians can
install at a relatively small cost," says Diaz.
7) Back up your data. According to experts,
this is one of the most important (and often
overlooked) steps when upgrading a system.
"This is where we shine," states Diaz. "We
provide complete data protection solutions
for both businesses and individuals at a rel-
atively small cost."
Fast-teks also offers training services for
individuals or large groups, meaning that
you can not only have Windows Vista
installed, but you (or your office) can receive
training on how to use the new programs.
"It's the complete solution. From installa-
tion to training to follow-up, we can provide
the solutions that individuals, or businesses,
need to stay current," says Diaz.


Frankly, I'm surprised
that computers even run
at all without crashing
after five minutes of up
time.
I always have to smile
whenever I hear anyone
say, "I wasn't even doing
anything and it just
locked up."
Sure, you weren't doing
anything, but the comput-
er is still as busy as a one-
armed paperhanger.
Consider this: even if
you are just sitting there,
hands completely off the
mouse and keyboard, the
computer is constantly
.(and I do mean constant-
ly) looking at the key-
board and mouse for any
change.
It's also re-painting
whatever's on the screen
60 to 70 times a second,
checking to see if it's time
to start the screen saver,
listening to network or
modems connections for
incoming calls and more.
So even if you are not
doing anything, the
computer is still very busy
just waiting for you to do
something.
And that's not even
considering the hundreds
of other things it has to do
just to keep the desktop
alive and stable.
That's why Windows can
sometimes become
overwhelmed and freeze
up.
So, what do you do
about it when it happens?
Let's go through a
common scenario.


SEAN.MCCARTHY
Compute This
Say you are surfing the
Internet and you click a
link, the page loads and
you start reading. You get
to the bottom of the page
and go to click some-
where else, but the
pointer is just an hour-
glass and you can't click
anything.
Or, maybe the pointer
looks fine (no hour glass)
but still, nothing happens
when you click.
What do you do then?
First, don't panic. *
It usually doesn't mean
the computer is messed
up. It usually means that
Windows got bogged
down somewhere and
needs a "little nudge" to
get it back on track.
I usually try to getthe
computer's attention by
trying a couple of different
keyboard commands. I'll
hit the escape key (usually
at the top left-hand side of
the keyboard) to divert the
machine's attention from
whatever it's stuck on.
Sometimes this all it

takes, and sometimes not.
If hitting the escape key
doesn't work, then I try the
"three finger salute."
With one finger, press
and hold the "CTRL"
button, then with another
finger press and hold
"ALT" and with a third,
press "DELETE." It's
important to be pressing
all three buttons at once
as pressing them and
letting go will do nothing.
Once you press ctrl, alt,
delete, aWindows security
window should pop up
that gives you the options
to "lock computer," "log
off," "shutdown," "change
the password," "open the
task manager" or "cancel."
Click on the task manag-
er button and make sure
the "applications tab" is
highlighted and in front.
On the applications page
you should see your Web
browser listed (or whatev-
er program you were
running when you lost
control) often with a
comment of "not respond-
ing." Click it so it becomes
highlighted and then click
"end task."
After a moment or two, a
message should pop up
asking if you want to wait
for the program or end the
task.
Click the "end task"
button and your browser
should close and give
control back to your
mouse.
But, what if that doesn't
work?
Then you have to reboot
the machine. Just press
and hold the power button
until the computer shuts
down, wait 10 to 20 sec-
onds and turn it back on.
After the machine
restarts, things shouldbe
back to normal and you
should have control of

The main elements of most fertilizers j


T Then you go to your
\ i\/favorite retail
SV nursery and shop
for plant food or fertilizer,
you will find a confusing
array of brands and varieties
for almost any application
imaginable.
You will find weed and
feeds, bloom specials, water
soluble, granular and
flowering, along with many
others. Although each type
of fertilizer has a specific
purpose, they all have one
thing, well actually, three
things in common.
All plant foods and
fertilizers contain a certain
percentage of nitrogen,
phosphorous and potassi-
um.
The numbers you see on
the package (for example: 8-
8-8) indicate the contents of
each of the above listed
elements in the order I listed
them.
Each of these elements
serve a different purpose,
and that is why you will find
so many different blends.
For example, most lawn
fertilizers will contain a
larger first number (nitro-
gen) and the second
(phosphorous) and third
(potassium) numbers will
be lower. The reason is that
lawns need plenty of
nitrogen to keep that lush,
green color and maintain
healthy growth.
The other elements,
although still needed, are
not required in such large
quantities.
Another good example is
food for flowering plants.
In this case, you want die
see the second number
(phosphorous) higher than
the first and third. This trpe
of blend is desirable when


you want your plants to
bloom.
Higher amounts of
phosphorous will help
enhance that blooming
process while the lower
nitrogen levels will not
cause surge growth in the
plant.
Nitrogen
This gives your plants that
lush green color and
enhances the growth
process. This element is
necessary for plant growth.
However, applying too
much of this element can
burn or kill your plants or
lawn.
Always apply according to
the label directions.
Phosphorous
This element is necessary
for plant health and flower
and fruit production.When
you want to help your plants
bloom. you \\ant a food that
contains a higher amount of
this element and a low\
amount of nitrogen.


Potassium
This element, also known
as potash, is necessary for
proper root development.
Potash can help plants
establish a good root system
that can help the plant
during periods of draught
stress.
Trace elements
Many fertilizers will
contain a variety of trace
elements that will add even
more benefits for your
plants.
Iron is a common trace
element that is added to
many lawn and plant care
formulas. Iron is often a
desirable ingredient if you
are feeding acid-loving'
plants such as ixoria, azalea
and gardenia plants.
Some formulas will dig


deeper and contain trace
amounts of zinc, copper or
manganese.
Manganese is a good trace
element to look for in a
citrus blend, for example.
Magnesium is another
trace element you might
want to look for in a plant
food blend. This element is
useful for greening the
leaves of plants, such as
roses, tomato plants and
palm trees.
A simple and inexpensive
way to add this element to
your plants is by adding
Epsom salts to your soil. For
a 3-gallon potted plant, use
about a quarter cup and '
sprinkle around the plant.
Water in after applying. You
can do this about once a
month for preventive
maintenance or more often
if your plants need a boost.
There are a wide array of
plants that can benefit from
this simple trick, including
ixoria, gardenia, palms, and
hibiscus along with many of
your common indoor
tropicals.
I have had many people
come back to me with great
success stories on this
simple secret.
A good garden retailer will
have Epsom salts included
with their plant food mix.

If you can't click any-

Occasional lock ups and -
other similar issues have
given Windows a bad

there are so many other

easier to understand why

Frankly, the same thing -

EGGPLANT
PARMESAN
Serves 4
3 medium eggplants


Salt
2 eggs or egg whites or
equivalent of egg substi-
tute
1/2 cup water
1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
Canola oil


Seasoned omato sauce
(recipe follows)
Grated Italian cheese
8 ounces of mozzarella,
regular or low-fat, sliced
Peel eggplant and slice in
scant 1/4-inch rounds. Layer
in a large colander, sprin-
kling each layer generously
with salt. Place colander on a
dish or in the sink. Put a plate
on top of the eggplant and
top it with a weight.
I use a pot full of water. My
grandmother used to have a
"pet rock." She would wrap
the rock in a towel and place
it on top of the plate.
Let the salt "bleed" the
eggplant for one to two
hours. A brown liquid will
drip out of the colander. This
extra step will produce a
better-tasting end result.
When the time is up, rinse
several slices of eggplant at a
time and squeeze.
There are many different
ways of preparing the
eggplant. I do not use


breadcrumbs; they absorb
too much oil. By using a flour
then egg wash process the oil
you use will be minimal.
Beat the eggs and water
together. On a plate or piece
of waxed papel;, mix flour,
pepper and parsley.
Dredge the eggplant slices
in flour mixture, then in egg
wash. Fry in a small amount
of canola oil until golden on
each side. Drain on paper
towels.
Place a small amount of
sauce in an oven-proof
casserole. Layer eggplant
with a sprinkling of grated
cheese, slices of mozzarella
and some sauce. Continue
layering, ending with sauce.
Bake in a 350-degree oven for
20 to 30 minutes until heated
through.

When making your own, use
a little oil from the fried
eggplant, it imparts a great
flavor.
2 (8 ounce) cans tomato
sauce
1 large clove garlic, peeled
and chopped
1/4 teaspoon oregano
Dash of salt and pepper
Chop garlic and saut6 in
oil. Add tomato sauce and
equal amount of water. Add
oregano, salt and pepper
and let cook for about 10
minutes.

since she received it back in
1979.
This is a large dessert and
will feed more than 20
people.
The choice of fat-free
whipped topping over
whipped cream will make
this a low-fat dessert and the
choice of sugar-free gelatin
will make it a great dessert
for those who must restrict
their sugar intake.
2 cups water
1 (5 serving size) package
strawberry gelatin, regular
or sugar-free
2 (16 ounces) packages
frozen strawberries
(unsweetened)
1 store bought angel food
cake
2 cups (1 pint) heavy
whipping cream or 1 large
(12 ounce package)
whipped topping
In a medium-size pot
bring water to a boil, then
add gelatin stirring well.
Lower heat and add 1-1/2
packages of frozen straw-
berries and stir until they
separate. Remove from
stove. )
Cut angel food cake into
1-inch cubes and arrange in
a 9- by 13-inch glass pan
until all of the cake is used
and the bottom of the dish is
completely covered.
Reserve about 1 table-
spoon of the strawberry/gel-
atin mixture for the topping.
Pour the remainder over
cake cubes until entire
bottom of pan is covered.
Chill overnight. Top
dessert with whipped cream
or topping combined with
the 1 tablespoon of liquid
saved from the day before.
Cut the thawed 1/2 bag of
strawberries in half and
range on top.

WHIPPED CREAM
Whipped cream is both
the easiest and the most
difficult topping to -prepare.
It is extremely tricky to catch
it just right before it turns to
butter.
1 pint, (2 cups) heavy
whipping cream
2 tablespoon or more
confectioners sugar
Use a high, narrow bowl.
Chill bowl and beaters if
possible.
Using an electric mixer,
beat cream at high speed
until frothy. Add sugar and
continue beating, watching
the cream very carefully. It
will start to thicken, contin-
ue beating scraping bowl
occasionally. The cream is
whipped when it starts to
have a slight "break-up"
look. (Over-beating by just a
few seconds will suddenly
turn the cream to butter. It
will become a mass with
water around it.)
Makes enough to frost two
8-or 9-inch layers.

Travel tips for


savvy seniors


or many Americans,
retirement provides
the opportunity to
travel and the luxury of
time to enjoy it.
After decades of work-
ing, seniors relish the idea
of hitting the road in their
RVs or taking to the skies
or oceans for a well-
deserved vacation, or
vacations.
To help seniors have a
more organized, safe and
cost-efficient trip, here
are some suggestions.

Communicate: If
you're going on an
extended trip, consider
leaving a detailed itiner-
ary with a family member
or trusted friend.
In the industry jargon
this type of customized
itinerary is called an "FIT."
This -ti-aay should
include all pertinent
information relating to
your trip such as the
names, addresses and
telephone numbers of the
people and places where
you will visit, flight
information and airline
ticket numbers, cruise
itinerary and ports of call,
including dates when you
will be in each port.
If traveling overseas, we
highly suggest you also
include your passport
number, date and place it
was issued, and credit
card and traveler's check
information.

Dose of advice:
Medications are generally
an important item of
consideration for seniors
on extended vacations.
Before traveling, be sure
to pack your medications
properly. Refill prescrip-
tions before leaving and
keep phone numbers for
doctors and pharmacies
close at hand.
Also, consider packing a
note from your doctor
explaining why the
medication is needed.
And now more than
ever, especially with the
added security regula-
tions and to av6id any
confrontation with
Transportation Security
Administration agents, be
sure to pack medications
in carry-on baggage and
always in their original
bottles.

Prepaid phone cards:
Prepaid phone cards are
the easiest, simplest and
cheapest way to make
,calls when traveling.
At some hotels, a phone
call can cost upwards of
$2 just to get a connec-
tion
Phone cards from the
major service providers
as a rule, have low rates
per minute and can be
used throughout the
United States and inter-
nationally.
About one third of
Americans traveling on
vacation use prepaid
phone cards as their
primary means of com-
municating.
These cards extend an
extra level of convenience
and safety to the senior
travel experience.

Take preventative
measures: Always consid-
er using the resources of a
travel professional to
assist you in identifying
the best and safest
vacation travel option.
Even if you choose to
plan a vacation on your
own, carefully research
the country or countries
you plan to visit and
determine if you should
be immunized against
any endemic diseases, or


if you need a vaccination
against diphtheria,
tetanus, polio, typhoid or


GERALDINE BLANCHARD
Travel columnist
hepatitis A.
Your travel professional
should be able to assist
you with general infor-
mation on required
vaccinations or preven-
tive measures that you
may have to take or want
to consider, so ask for this
information as a part of
your travel planning
discussions.
Also, consult your
personal doctor who may
offer an extra measure of
medical safety.
Finally, the Web site for
the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention,
www.cdc.gov/travel/, is a
great resource.

Passports, visas:
Another important factor
is obtaining a passport,
which will save you many
headaches no matter the
destination.
By the end of this year,
all Americans traveling
abroad by air or ship will
be required to carry a
passport. The 6nly
exceptions will be Puerto
Rico and the U.S. Virgin
Islands.
In that same vein, make
sure your travel consult-
ant checks into the visa
requirements to enter
that country. For exam-
ple, Brazil, India, China
and Russia are a few of
the countries where it is a
must for Americans to
enter the country with a
special visa stamped in
their passport.

Photo protection:
What is a great vacation
without great photos?
If you are flying and
returning home with
exposed film of your
adventures, pack it in
your carry-on luggage,
never check it. The
baggage X-ray machines.
may overexpose those
precious shots. The X-ray
machines for carry-on
luggage are considered
safe, but you can always
ask for hand inspection.
Armed with these bits of
information, today's
active seniors will
enhance their travel
experience wherever they
may choose to visit.
Bon voyage and until
your actual trip, have
happy travel dreams.

Watch out for extra fees


)ou may have read my
columns denouncing
the "dealer fee," which
is a charge car dealers add
to the price they have
already quoted you on the
car.
They refer to it as a fee to
fool you into thinking it's a
legitimate fee, such as sales
tax or a license fee. What it
is, is profit to the dealer.
That's exactly what banks
and leasing companies do
when they lease you a.car.
They most commonly label
their "fee" the "lease
acquisition fee," but it's
profit to the bank or leasing
company, and in some
cases, a smaller portion is
kicked back to the car
dealer. This fee is also called
by different names such as
"administrative fee."
Yesterday I got a com-
plaint letter from a cus-
tomer in North Palm Beach
who was a reader of this


N


EARL STEWART
On Cars

column. He had just
discovered that he paid an
$895 "lease acquisition fee"
when he leased his new
Toyota from my dealership.
I called him, apologized,
and told him that I agreed
with him that this was not
the right thing for banks to
do, but that they all did-it.
I also agreed with him
that the "lease acquisition
fee" should be disclosed
and explained on the lease
contract. It should be called
"profit to the bank" and in
cases where the dealer gets
a portion of this fee, "profit
to the bank and dealer."
When a car dealer sells ,
you a car, you expect him
to make his profit by
adding a markup to the
wholesale price he paid the
manufacturer. You expect
and understand this.
Therefore, you can shop
and compare prices
between different dealer-
ships.
You expect a bank or a
leasing company to make

their lease profit by mark-
ing up the cost of their
money during the time you
drive their car. On a lease,
it's called a lease factor and
on a purchase it's called an
interest rate.
The bank owns the car
because they bought it
from the dealer. If you drive
their car for 36 months,
your monthly payments
must cover their costs of
depreciation, money,
overhead and also pay
them a profit. You expect
and understand this.
Therefore, you can shop
and compare lease factors
and residuals. The residual
establishes the cost of
depreciation and the lease
factor establishes the cost
of money. The mark up
over these two costs should
be the profit to the bank.
The "lease acquisition
fee" does not appear on the
contract. It is disclosed on a
separate form which
includes everything in the
"capitalized cost" of the car
you are leasing. Most
people understandably
-think that the capitalized
cost of the car is just for the
car, not some extra profit
for the bank.
I don't know any bank or
leasing company that does
not charge a lease acquisi-
tion fee. This fact is often
used to legitimize it. When
a customer does object, the
answer is "all banks charge
this fee."
That doesn't make it right!
That's the same explana-
tion that car dealers give
when they get caught
charging their "dealer fee."
Just because almost
everybody does something
does not make it right.
These fees vary over about
the same range as dealer
fees, from about $495 up to
about $895.
Oh, there are some other
fees that the banks and
leasing companies charge
you when you lease a car
that you probably didn't
know about when you
signed in.
If you buy your car at the
end of the lease, there is a
"purchase option fee." If
you don't buy it, there is a
"lease disposal fee." These
vary from $150 to $450. The
bank knew il advance that
you were either going to
buy the car or not buy the
car at the end of the lease.
Their efforts associated
with your choice are simply
the overhead cost of
operating a leasing compa-
ny and should be built into
'their rates.
When you quote your
customers a price and then
increase the price after the
purchase or lease where
will it stop?
How about a "fuel
adjustment fee" because of
rising gasoline prices or a
"power fee" to help the
banks pay their light bills?


the consumer can easily
shop and compare. Costs of
doing business should be
included in the pricing of
products, not tacked on
after the price is quoted
and/or the contract is
signed.
Of course, that's exactly
why banks and car dealers
have obscure fees like this,
so you can't easily shop and
compare.
Right now, there isn't
much you can do about the
lease acquisition fee,
except voice your opinion
to your bank and your
congressinan.

DIRECTOR: JON PUTZKE

Set in the 1890's, this play pits the notorious Tenderloin, a red-light
district in Western Manhattan, against a crusading minister who
vows to close it down. Staunch defenders of debauchery, however,
are equally determined to stop the reformer and his flock. Their
encounters result in confusion and disorder along with lots of fun.
A surprise twist at the end leaves one with "food for thought."

Area pitchers get a case of the'no-no's'


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
With the high school
baseball season in full
swing on the Treasure
Coast, one thing is clear:
The pitching on the Trea-
sure Coast is way ahead of
the hitting.
There was a flurry of no-
hitters thrown in the first
month of the 2006 season,
proving that the area's


pitching is as :good as it's
ever been.
Port St. Lucie senior
Mike McGee no-hit Satel-

Robbie Hubbard of Martin

Louis Viamontes pitched a
perfect game (five innings)


to start the trend on Feb.
20.
Normally a no-hitter
alone would justify a lot of
attention. But with just
one month of the season
complete, the frequency of
these standout perform-
ances leads one to ask why.
Some area coach's see
the outburst as an early
season trend: good pitch-
ing develops faster than
hitting.


Others think it is just
another set of great pitch-
ers from the Treasure
Coast.
Either way, it is no secret
that Treasure Coast is alive
and well with players who
can really throw the ball.
"I think the pitching has
been pretty decent," said
South Fork head coach
Mike Harper. "I feel that if

Carp catching on with the Mets


Former St. Lucie
star is playing
well in Mets
training camp

BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
Last summer, St. Lucie
Mets first baseman Mike
Carp was a regular at Tra-
dition Field. This spring he
is back, but this time as a
New York Met.
The 20-year-old Califor-
nia native is a non-roster
invitee at Mets spring
training this March, and is
already making a name for
himself through 10 games
this spring with the major
league club.
Carp is amongst the
team leaders in RBI (5),
hits (8) and average (.348).
Results like that get
noticed and have made
Carp one of the more
pleasant surprises of the
spring thus far.
"He's doing great and
he's adjusting well. That's
the whole idea behind
spring training, get
exposed to major league
pitching and he's done
well," said first base coach
Howard Johnson. "He's
making his adjustments
and what I like about him
is his mind is open. If you
tell him something he's
going to try to use it in the
ball game."
While the New York
media surrounds other
top prospects each day,
Carp floats about the club-
house like he's been here
before, packing up his
things and heading out
almost unnoticed. Funny
enough, Carp, who has
lived in Port St. Lucie for
about two years, has been
here before, playing for
Class A ball for St. Lucie in
2006. He probably knows
the area better than some
of the club veterans; but
instead of handing out


notes on the Treasure
Coast nightlife, he's taking
notes on batting styles and
technique from his new
teammates.
"It's the same game. It
might speed up a little bit,
and you might see some
different pitching but you
just take as much informa-
tion as you can from these
older guys," said Carp.
It was his performance
with the Class A affiliate
that got him noticed by
the major league club.
Carp was named a South
Atlantic League mid-sea-
son all-star with Hager-
stown in 2005 and finished
2006 with a .287 average,
88 RBI and 17 home runs
for St. Lucie.
He followed that per-
formance with a postsea-
son all-star selection with
the North Shore Honu of
the Hawaiian Winter
League.
Even with his good play
so far this spring, Carp
isn't about to get over-
excited about the possibil-
ity of playing in the big
leagues just yet. He knows
that he is at spring training
to give starter Carlos Del-
gado a day off every now
and then, and try to
increase his stock in the
franchise.
"If you're swinging the
bat good then (the coach-
es are) positive obviously,"
said Carp. "You just have
to stay within yourself and
not try to get out of your-
self too much and try to do
too much. Just do what
you've been doing. I had a
good year with St. Lucie
last year, and hopefully
double A Binghamton is
where I'll end up this
year."
While Carp is thinking
double A ball, he might
just play his way to triple
AAA New Orleans. His will-
ifigness to learn and take
advice from coaches and
teammates has made Carp
a rare commodity among
young athletes with a me-

St. Lucie Mets first baseman Mike Carp is a non-roster
invitee with the New York Mets this spring. Carp, who will
play with double A Binghamton or triple A New Orleans


this season, has impressed
and willingness to learn.

first attitude. His out-look
makes him an attractive
project to coaches.
"We'll see where he's at
(at the end of spring) and
see how receptive he is,"
said Johnson, who was the
hitting coach with triple A
Norfolk in 2006. "That's
really big because in order
to get to the next level. For
him it's probably triple A.
He's been able to do it
down here, I'm very
impressed... the more I
see him, the more I see
promise."
After going 2 for 4
against the Boston Red Sox
Mar. 7, including a hit off


coaches with his work ethic


knuckleball veteran Tim
Wakefield, Carp was once
again reserved about his
performance and more
reflective about his spring-
time stint with the Mets.
"It's amazing just to be
able to get into the games
and experience it myself,"
said Carp. "I try not to get
out of myself and just do
what got me here in the
first place, which is hit the
ball hard."

you're going to get a no-

going to get it in the begin-

take a while to catch up. It's
harder to get (a no-hitter)
later in the year."
One of the interesting
things about this season's
no-no's is who they have
come against.
Because the Florida High
School Athletic Associa-
tion relies so heavily on
district play, most teams
save their No. 1 pitcher for
big games within the dis-
trict. Of the four no-hitters
this season, two have come
against district opponents.

Viamontes. And while
Hubbard and Harper are
clearly not pitchers to take
lightly, they have players
around them who had
more impressive track
records before they threw
their no-hitters.
So while there might be
area matchups that look
enticing on paper, they
don't always pan out the
way one might think.
On Mar. 7 Port St. Lucie
faced Lincoln Park Acade-
my, beating the Grey-
hounds 4-0. Both team's
feature pitchers with major
league scouts following
them at every start, but
neither pitched in the
game. LPA senior Mark
Peterson is one of the most
talked about area
prospects, and will join
McGee at Florida State on


EQUAL HOUSING
OPPORTUNITY


a full scholarship next fall.
Even though a Peterson-
McGee matchup would
have been great for fans to
see, it just didn't make
sense for the teams to
throw their best in a non-
district game.
"No-hitters are nice, but
we try to pitch (Peterson)
in the bigger games, which
mean's better hitters," said
Lincoln Park head coach
Chuck Stewart of Peterson,
who has two one-hitters
this season. "This area pro-
duces a lot of good pitch-
ers."
Last year.Colton Willems
of John Carroll was the No.
22 pick in the major league
draft to the Washington
Nationals and in 1997, Port
St. Lucie graduate Rick
Ankiel signed with 'St.
Louis after being selected


in the second round.
Playing in an area so well
known for baseball
prospects presents a prob-
lems for rival clubs. Every
coach wants the best com-
petition for his players,
even if it means going
against a guy who throws
in the mid 90s.
"We got to get up there
and know our (strike) zone
and really work that pitch-
er in the count. If you can
get him high in the count,
you make him have to hit
the zone," said Harper.
"With McGee, the only rea-
son we got him out of the
game (a 12-11 win in 11
innings on Feb. 16) was we
got his pitch count up."
On the other end of the
spectrum is how you
develop your talent. Port
St. Lucie head coach Tony

Malizia was the Jaguars
pitching coach when
Ankiel came through the
system and has worked
with McGee, who throws in
the 90's, his entire high
school career. Knowing
that McGee had a cannon
for an arm, he only pitched
him four of five times in a
reliever role his freshman
year.
"We just worked on his
mechanics, we knew we
had a live arm," said Mal-
izia. "It pays dividends
later."
Malizia has also seen a
trend in recent years of
better pitches coming into
high school from the little
league level. While it still is
a common thing to have a
pitcher throw out his arm
by age 13, Malizia has seen
that situation less and less.


"Some (players) are fur-
ther along than they used
to be," said Malizia. "With
the little leagues, they've
established pitch counts,
which might have some-
thing to do with it. I think
the little leagues are just
getting better. The coaches
are getting more knowl-
edgeable."
Having more mature
players enter high school
might be reason or the
recent no-hit craze, or at
least where it starts. But no
one can deny the pure tal-
ent of the current crop of
Treasure Coast pitchers.
As the season rolls on,
and hitters begin to come
around, it would be sur-
prising if pitchers contin-
ued their hot streak.
For fans, the fun part will
be watching.

task.
You need to take a good,
hard look at your clubs.
Get to know them better.
Examine the heads, check
the-grips, inspect the
shafts and, most impor-
tantly, make sure that they
are as ready to play as
you.

Get a grip

Your grips are probably
the most overlooked part
of the club.
How many of you have
an old club with a grip so
hard that you could drive
a nail with it?
Since the grip is the only
place that you actually
contact the club, your
grips must be in good
shape for you to maintain
control and hit good
shots.
If your grips are simply
dirty, wash them off. It's a
good idea to wash your
grips every couple of
weeks in a solution of
soap and water.
Between the dirt and oil
on your hands and the
dirt and dust that settle
into your golf bag, you'd
be surprised how much
crud you need to remove.
I've even used soapy steel
wool to get the worst stuff
off my grips.
If your grips are hard or
show wear in spots from
where you hold the club,
then it's time for replace-
ments.
When you replace your
grips, take a good look at
your hand size in relation-
ship to the grip size.
Properly sized grips are an
easy change to make and
one.that will make you a
more consistent player.
Larger grips take your
wrists out of your swing
and may help you if you're

hitting an ugly hook.
Smaller grips will help
promote a release and get
rid of that push or fade.
Think about making
sure that all of your grips,
except for your putter, are
the same. This is one way
to allow your hands to
have the same feel with
every club in the bag.

Getting the shaft

Look at each club
carefully. Check for rust.
Surface rust can be
removed with WD-40 or a
No. 2 pencil. However,
rust will often return.
When it does, it's time to
replace the shaft before it
fails.
A more serious shaft
problem would be a dent
or ding in a steel shaft.
These make the shaft
weak and inconsistent,
and should be replaced as
soon as possible to avoid
snapping it during a
swing.
Make sure that none of
your shafts are loose.
To test your shafts, grab
onto the head with one
hand and the grip with
the other and twist. Any
movement or squeaks
indicate a loose head.
Shafts can become loose
through normal play,
especially if you store
your clubs in your car.
Extreme heat or cold can
cause the epoxy to break
down.
Check to see if your
shafts match. You want all
of them to have a similar
flex. There should be a
half-inch increment
between the lengths of
your irons. Most wedge
sets are all the same
length to promote feel
and consistency with each
club.
Woods usually have a 1-
inch increment, except for
certain over-size drivers,
which may be three or
four inches longer than
your 3-wood. If all of your
irons' shafts don't match,
the playability of one club
to the next could be
compromised.

Get a head start
How do the club heads
look? Make sure to treat
any rusting or pitting. Car
wax works well on heads
as long as you stay away
from the face and grooves.


Clean out the grooves
with a brush. The buildup'
of dirt in the grooves
prevents the club from
imparting the proper spin
on the ball. A ball with
little or no spin acts like a,,
knuckle ball in the air and,
doesn't penetrate the
wind or fly very far.
Lastly, check the loft and'
lie. This is something that
every professional golfer
does nearly every week.
While most of us don't
play often enough to have
our lofts and lies checked
as often as a pro, it's a
good idea to have it done'
once or twice a year.
Clubs can get out of
alignment through
normal play. A two-degree,
change in loft can mean
as much as 10 yards in
distance. A properly lofted
set will not have any
distance gaps.
Ever wonder why you hit.
your six-iron the same
distance as your seven?
Maybe their lofts are
nearly the same.
A club that sits too flat
will cause the toe to dig
in, opening the clubface
giving you a slice or fade.
A club that sits too
upright will allow the heel'
to dig in, closing the
clubface, producing a
hook.
When in doubt

If you're not sure how to
check all of these items
yourself, call your favorite
shop. If they don't have
the ability to help you,
they will be glad to tell
you who can.
Most shops charge a
small fee to adjust your
clubs for loft and lie, and
many will check them for
free when replacing your
grips. New grips typically
cost less than $10
installed and your entire
set can be re-gripped in
less than an hour.
This weekend take some
time to check your clubs
and get them ready for the
season: Who knows,
maybe your swing isn't
what needs to be fixed.

Jonah and the Whale


One day long ago, in
the early eighth cen-
tury B.C., God told
Jonah, "Up on your feet, and
go to the Nineveh, the great
city preach to unbelievers
there. They are breaking my
laws, and I can't ignore it any.
longer."
Nineveh was the capital of
the Assyrian Empire, and
the Assyrians were a hard,
cruel race. Jonah, an
Israelite, did not care for the
Assyrians, as they were an
enemy of Israel.
So Jonah got up and head-
ed in the other direction. He
went down to the seacoast,
to the port of Joppa; a beau-
tiful city built on a promon-
tory, meaning a high point
of land or rock, projecting
into the sea.
Jonah found a ship leaving
for Tarshish, a metal-pro-
ducing harbor city on the
south coast of the Iberian
. Peninsula. Iberia is known
today as Andalusia, Spain.
He bought a ticket, and went
on board to flee from the
Lord.
As the ship was sailing
along, the Lord darkened
the sky and flung a terrific
wind over the sea. Great
gusts whipped up the sea,
rain lashed the masts, and
the ship was tossed up and
down the towing waves.
Fearing that the ship was
about to break into pieces,
the desperate mariners
called out to their gods, and
threw their cargo overboard
to lighten the load. But the
ship bowed and cracked, in
the full force of the storm.
Below deck, Jonah was
into a deep sleep. The cap-
tain of the ship went to him
and said, "What's this?
Sleeping? Get up! Cry out to
your God! Maybe he will
have mercy on us and res-
cue us!"
Then the sailors cast lots
to discover the culprit that
had brought this calamity
upon them. Casting of lots
was a custom whereby
sticks or pebbles were
drawn, from a receptacle
into which they had been
cast. The lot fell upon Jonah;
he drew the short stick. Now,
an angry crew surrounded


DAVID GOODE
Religion'columnist
him.
They grilled him, "Con-
fess! Why this disaster? What
is your work? Where do you
come from? What is your
nationality?" Jonah told
them, "T am a Hebrew, and I
worship the Lord, the God of
Heaven, who made the sea
and the land."
At that, the sailors were
extremely frightened and
asked, "What have you
done?" as Jonah talked, they
realized he was running
away from his God.
The sailors said to him,
"What are we going to do
with you, to calm the
storm?" By this time, the sea
was totally out of control!
Jonah said, "throw me over-
board and the storm will
stop! It is all my fault!"
The sailors were desper-
ate, but they did not want to
answer to Jonah's God for
taking his life! They tried to
row back to the shore, but
with every stroke of their
oars, the winds' grew
stronger and the waves
became more threatening!
Realizing they had no
choice, the reluctant sailors
threw Jonah overboard! As
soon as he splashed into the
rough seas, the gale began to
die down. As Jonah drifted
away from the ship, on the
swell, he heard the captain
and the sailors praying and
giving thanks once more,
but this time, they prayed to
his God, not their pagan
gods.
Just when Jonah thought
things couldn't get any
worse, they did! One minute
he was bobbing up and
down in the water like a
cork, The next minute he


was swimming around
inside a dark, wet cave, or
actually, the stomachc" of a
huge, great fish! This great
fish could have been a
sperm whale, white shark or
shark whale. All have been
found with whole, large ani-
mals in their stomachs.
Jonah survived in the belly
of the whale for three days
and nights! How did he pass
the time? Perhaps some
body surfing? But on a more
serious note, he prayed.
His petition to God went
something like this, oh Lord,
I'm dreadfully sorry. If you
get me out of here, I promise
to obey you in the future.
Suddenly Jonah saw a little
circle of light, and then it
widened. The great fish had
opened its mouth and was
about to burp Jonah out
onto a firm bed of sand!
Imagine with me for a
moment, what it must have
been like for those taking a
stroll on the beach!
Thanks be to God, Jonah
must have cried, as the
receding surf rushed past
his ankles leaving him in the
warm sunlight. As his toes
gripped the sand, Jonah
struggled to stand up, wiped
his face, and tried to adjust
his eyes to the brightness.
The Lord's voice boomed,
and commanded Jonah
once again, go to Nineveh,
and warn the people that
they must turn to God to
avoid divine judgement. So
Jonah went to Nineveh and
preached, and the king and
all of the people repented.
To learn more, read book of
Jonah, in the Old Testament.
God proved to Jonah, that he
demands .obedience. God
loves people of all nationali-
ties equally, and wants
everyone to love and wor-
ship him.
