Communication key


to new mayor's success


Mayor Christensen is building new
relationships with neighboring local


government bodie
BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE It has
been nearly six months
since Patricia Christensen
was sworn in as the city's
first woman mayor, and it is
evident that the city is
under new leadership.
The biggest change is the
start of a dialogue between
Port St. Lucie and sur-
rounding municipalities
about projects that affect
their constituents. When
former mayor Robert Min-
sky led the city, he was not

PORT ST. LUCIE On
the heels of a successful
St. Patrick's Day festival,
the city and the St. Lucie
Professional Art League
are hosting an art and
music event this weekend.
Art & All That Jazz is
scheduled for Saturday,
March 31 and Sunday,
April 1, at Lyngate Park in
Port St. Lucie. Like other
festivals in the past year, it
is free to the public.
The event will feature
the artwork and music of
local and national artists.
"Our whole goal is to
support the arts in St.
Lucie County," said Scott
Armstrong, special events
coordinator with the Port
St. Lucie Parks and Recre-
ation Department. "We
want this to be a huge. cul-
tural event."
In addition to a new
locatiorl, Art & All That
Jazz will have a wine-tast-
ing tent for $10, which is
sponsored by Suffolk Con-
struction and Song &
Associates. The tent. will
have music by pianist Ed
Husted, who will perform
the music of George
Gershwin.

alcoholic beer, will be

An interlocal agreement

new officers

Largest group of
policemen ever to
be sworn in

BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE New
police officer Fred Knaggs is
well acquainted with .the
streets of Port St. Lucie.
Officer Knaggs, 25, was
sworn in March 20, along with
11 other men and women, the
largest group of new officers in
the Port St. Lucie Police
Department's history.
Officer Knaggs was. born in
Martin County when there was
no hospital in the city, and
grew up in Port St. Lucie. He
graduated from Fort Pierce
Central High School in 2000,
and began working at 911 dis-
patch and the St. Lucie County
Jail before he decided to work
for the agency in his home-
town.
"I believe Port St. Lucie is a
fine department with still a lot
of growing to do," Officer
Knaggs said. "I want to be a
part of its development and
protect the city I live in."
Officer Knaggs and the other
new officers were welcomed to
the department by Assistant
Chief Brian Reuther, who was
one of the original nine offi-
cers first sworn in when the
department was formed in
1980. With the new officers,
the Port St. Lucie Police force
now has 256 sworn officers.

BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE For a
mere $10, one lucky person

supporting your local
YMCA.
Tickets are still available

The house will be the first

i Charity sends surgery



S... units around the world

Pictured from left to right is Dr. Dick Chabot, Lester Jefferson CRNA, Dr. N. Subramani-
am and Jodell Rollins, RN doing a laparoscopic procedure at San Benito Jose Hospital
in Comayagua Honduras. The team was sent by Light of the World Charities to help
the poor and sick with medical treatment.


PORT ST. LUCIE One
local charity is trying to
change the world, one sur-
gery at a time.
Light of the World Chari-
ties is a nonprofit organiza-
tion located in Palm City,
primarily made up of vol-
unteers from the health and
medical community.
The group regularly sends
surgical teams to Third
World countries to meet the
needs of the poor and sick.
Formed in 1998, by co-
founders Rev. Bernard Pow-
ell and Theresa Banks, the


charity has turned into a
well-oiled, medical-mission
machine.
Mrs. Banks said the organi-
zation was formed around
the words of Jesus Christ of
"doing for the least of my
brethren."
"Our main goal is to show
compassion to the sick," said
Mrs. Banks. "Every team
member that goes on a mis-
sion does it from his or her
heart."
She said over the last
decade, the organization has
grown in reputation as well as
numbers.
"We have medical profes-
sionals from all over America
volunteering for the trips,"


Mrs. Banks said. "We began
by sending local medical pro-
fessionals and now we can
pull from all over the nation."
She attributes the growth to
having a good track record
with their trips. "We have
tried to be excellent in all
areas. We try our hardest for
the, team, members to be
secure in their surroundings,
to have a well organized trip
and to equip the surgical
rooms with what they need."-
Four times a year the chari-
ty sends surgical teams to
Honduras.

St. Lucie at this point can-
not go it alone. We cannot
afford to go it alone."
Mr. Craft feels Mayor
Christensen has taken a
step in the right direction
when it comes to dealing
with the county.
"She had made a huge
effort to improve the inter-
governmental relation-
ships," Mr. Craft said. "I'm
extremely thankful for that.
It is important to sit down at
the table, even when you
disagree, and not get angry
with everyone."


Mr. Minsky, who served
as mayor for 12 years, said
he is still waiting to see how
the urban services bound-
ary issue is resolved before
commenting on Mayor
Christensen's performance
so far in the top seat.
"She's been very open to
communicating with a lot
of people that with me
these people wanted to
know what was in it for
them. But she's open to
communicating and talking
with these people and I do
commend her for that."


Part of Mayor Chris-
tensen's plan to improve
county support for Port St.
Lucie is to lobby St. Lucie
County for more money
and projects in the city. With
approximately 60 percent of
St. Lucie County's tax base
in the city, Mayor Chris-
tensen believes more
money should be invested
in Port St. Lucie.
"Our residents are county
residents, and the county
needs to support Port St.
Lucie more than in the
past," she said.


Mayor Christensen
moved to Port St. Lucie 20
years ago from Rhode
Island. She first served on
the city council in 1990, and
is proud of how far the city
has come from that coun-
cil's vision of the future of
Port St. Lucie
"We were a little bedroom
community of residential
and shopping centers,"
Mayor Christensen said.
"We knew what we needed
to do and laid out a plan of
how to get there."
That plan included build-


ing city infrastructure that
was not in place. In 1993,
the city launched its contro-
versial water and sewer
project to connect the city
to one utility. Completed
last year, the city now has
more than 63,000 cus-
tomers on city water and
sewer.
"We couldn't do any-
thing without water and
sewer," Mayor Chris-
tensen said. "It wasn't
until we got the infra-
structure in place that
businesses wanted to look
at us."
Today the city continues
to grow, taking a different
path for the future than in
the past. The biomedical
research and education
field is getting its start
with Torrey Pines Institute
for Molecular Studies in
Tradition, while the Tradi-
tion development itself is
opening up to numerous
retail opportunities.
The city is finally getting


a downtown, with the first
building, the Civic Center,
opening next year. Con-
struction has begun on
the. city's third east-west
corridor, the Crosstown
Parkway. The road will
open the. city up to resi-
dents in central Port St.
Lucie, as well as alleviate
traffic on other roads.
"I believe we'll see a lot
of great things happen/'
Mayor Christensen said.
Vice mayor Jack Kelly
said he is pleased with the
job Mayor Christensen is
doing so far. He applauds
her efforts to work with St.
Lucie County on common
issues.
"Pat's a lady and tends
to lead like a lady," Vice-
mayor Kelly said. "We
always seem to be able to
compromise with MartiIn
County, but with St. Lucie
County, compromise
means follow the line and
do what they want. I com-
mend her for her work."

Martin Memorial comes out against


trauma center on Treasure Coast


By RITA HART
Staff writer
STUART-Martin
Memorial Health Systems
has come out against the
proposed trauma center at
Lawnwood Regional Med-
ical Center in Fort Pierce.
Martin Memorial does
not have a trauma center,
nor is one in the planning
stages at this time. All trau-
ma cases in the area serv-
iced 'by Martin Memorial
are transported to St.
Mary's Medical Center in
West Palm Beach.
"Martin Memorial has
taken this position only in
the interest of providing
the best possible patient
care and sound healthcare
planning for local resi-
dents. As a mission-driven
organization and one of
the primary caregivers in
this region, we feel it is our
responsibility to ensure
the community is receiv-
ing the best health care
possible," said Mr. Sam-
ples, public information
coordinator for Martin
Memorial.
Martin Memorial's
opposition is based on a
study by the American
Medical Association which
indicates trauma centers
that treat less than 650
patients a year have a mor-
tality rate more than dou-
ble that of a trauma center
with a higher patient vol-
ume.
The American Medical
Association study, pub-
lished in 2001, surveyed 31
Level I and Level II trauma
centers, which had major
trauma cases totaling
between 257 to 1,050.
These cases represented
the number of major trau-
ma admissions, rather
than the total number of


'The small trauma centers have over a 50
percent mortality rate. That's startling to me.'

Richmond Harman
CEO of Martin Memorial Health Systems


Richmond Harman
cases. Those admissions
involved patients with
major "multi-system trau-
ma" as defined by an injury
severity score.
The study found that
those centers treating 650
or more patients had a
mortality rate of 24.2 per-
cent. However, trauma
centers that saw less than
650 patients per year with
such injuries had a mortal-
ity rate of 51.7 percent.
In 2006, a total of 191
patients with major trau-
ma damage were trans-
ported to St. Mary's Med-
ical Center from Martin, St.
Lucie, Okeechobee and
Indian River counties.
The study contends that
fewer cases means less
experience for physicians
and the team of profes-
sionals that must work
together to deal with major
trauma cases.
"The busy trauma cen-
ters that have well-oiled
machines of trauma care
professionals end up with
a mortality rate some-
where in the low 20 per-
cent range. The small trau-
ma centers have over a 50
percent mortality rate.
That's startling to me," said
Richmond Harman, presi-
dent and chief executive


officer of Martin Memori-
al.,
"To me, that outweighs
the fact that some. people
may feel it's more conven-
ient to have their family
members kept in a local
setting," he said.
In announcing its oppo-
sition, Martin Memorial
also cited a 2001 study
published in the Journal of
Trauma that indicated
trauma centers with low
volumes of patients with
major traumas increased
the risk factor for mortality
rates.
According to Martin
Memorial, St. Mary's Med-
ical Center and Holmes
Regional Medical Center in
Melbourne, which also has
a trauma center, are only
recently reaching levels
that would constitute
higher volumes.
"Adding another trauma
center to the area would
lower those numbers, a
factor that could result in
worse patient outcomes
and additional patient
deaths at all three trauma
centers," said Mr. Samples.
In 2003, St. Mary's treat-
ed 553 major trauma cases,
while Holmes Regional
handled 343 major cases.
Mr. Harmon estimates
that .the area's population
would have to reach one
million people to support a
top-notch trauma center
on the Treasure Coast.
"It's clear from the stud-
ies that volume is impor-
tant and it correlates with
quality," said Mr. Harman.


Martin Memorial also
contends that since state
regulations require trauma
patients be transported to
the closest trauma center,
that would still mean
transportation to St.
Mary's in West Palm Beach
for approximately 50 per-.
cent of Martin County resi-
dents, and to Holmes
Regional for some Indian
River County residents,
further reducing the
potential number of trau-,
ma cases treated at Lawn-
wood, should a trauma
center be built there.
In addition, Mr. Harman
cites the fact that the area
has excellent transporta-
tion to both St. Mary's
Medical Center and
Holmes Regional.
"You are talking about
minutes here in terms of
transport, even from St.
Lucie County, where it is
less than 20 minutes trans-
port time," said Mr. Har-
man.
Lawnwood Regional's
chief executive officer Tom
Pentz is expected to ask
the St. Lucie County com-
mission to consider a ref-
erendum allowing voters
to support a property tax
to subsidize the cost of a
new trauma center. That
vote was held after the
Hometown News went to
press.
St. Lucie County Fire
Chief Jay Sizemore is solid-
ly behind adding a trauma
center to the Treasure
Coast.

Police investigate rape
Port St. Lucie Police continue to investigate a report of a
rape of a 12-year-old girl.
According to police, a man entered a home on Silva Lane
in western Port St. Lucie sometime after midnight March
21, while the family slept.
The girl told police she woke up and found the man
standing over her with a gun, threatening her with it. With
a hand over her mouth, the man raped her, Chuck John-
son, police spokesman, said.
"She went to the hospital and had a rape kit conducted,
but we are not releasing the findings," Mr. Johnson said.
The girl described her attacker as. a black male with
dreadlock-type hair, but police are not sure if that is his
actual hair.
Mr. Johnson said at this point in the investigation it
seems the family does not know the man, and that he
might have spotted the victim somewhere and became
obsessed with her.
Police believe he entered through an unlocked door.
"Residents need to use common sense and take an extra
minute at night to make sure all the doors and windows
are locked," Mr. Johnson said. "You always have to double
check. Our population has grown large so quickly, and
we're getting some people in the city who are unsavory.
Port St. Lucie is not a small city anymore."
Anyone with information about this crime can call the,
Port St. Lucie Police Department at (772) 871-5001, or
Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers at (800) 273-TIPS.

City faces possible loss of nearly $32 million
If state tax reforms pass where taxable values are rolled
back to 2000-2001 rates, the city of Port St. Lucie could lose
$31.8 million in revenue, according to memo from City
Manager Don Cooper.
At the old rate, the city would lose two-thirds of its tax-
able value, which would force City Hall to trim the budget.
The City Council could raise property taxes to the state
maximum of $10 per $1,000 of taxable value, but there still
would need to be a $3.5 million budget cut.
Mahoney creates Veterans Advisory Council
Congressman Tim Mahoney, D-16th District, last week
announced the creation of a newVeterans Advisory Coun-
cil, which will provide a direct line of communication
between the congressman and veterans throughout his
district.
The council is comprised of veterans from all eight
counties in Florida's 16th. Congressional District, and
includes Floridians who served inWorldWar II, the Korean
War, theVietnamWar, the Iraq War, and Operation Endur-
ing Freedom.
The 16th District includes St. Lucie County.
The council, which will meet quarterly, will provide a
venue through which veterans can provide insight and
advice on issues facing the veterans' community. In addi-
tion, Congressman Mahoney will provide regular legisla-
tive updates from Congress.

More Medicare problems

I read the Hometown News every time I find it in my
driveway. It is the best paper in town.
I even like it better that the Stuart paper.
You have an article in there called "Medicare prob-
lems."
Well, my grandson has a problem. He has been to
every doctor, every agency to try to get help for ADHD,
and all they keep saying is that he is not on Medicare.
His father served six years in the service, and he is an
American citizen, born and raised her. So is my grand-
son. They cannot get any help whatsoever.
We are desperate because he needs medical attention.
He needs to be tested. He needs a blood test, a cardio-
gram, all of the tests that are possible, because he is not
getting better, he is getting worse.
I'm afraid of him dying because he is not getting the
care that he needs.
My son has a job. But, he earns too much money.
He earns over $9,000 or $10,000 a year. That's what all
of the agencies keep telling him.
He has to pay a mortgage every month, and has to pay
medical bills. He pays for a psychiatrist and a psycholo-

gist, $100 to one, and $120 to the other each month.
Then he has to buy all of the medicine that is required.
They give him medicine that he has not been tested for.
We found out that one of these medicines has killed
children in Canada. I don't know-how many have died in
the country.
It is very scary.
Why can't we get help, when we have lived here all of
our lives?
There are people coming from other countries who just
step foot in the United States, and get all the Medicare
they want.
They don't pay social security, and they don't pay taxes.
We do, and I'm retired and still have to pay taxes on my
social security. I have to pay for Medicare.
My grandson can't get anything. Why can't something
be done?
I read that article about the poor women who can't get
help either, and I sympathize with her. I am in the same
boat.

Worst fair

I attended the Martin County fair the last few years, and
it is the worst county fair that I have ever attended.
If it weren't for the fair animals, there wouldn't be any-
thing of interest there. There were just a few booths.
I think the fair needs new blood. The people there have
no interest in making the fair of interest to the people of
the county.
The St. Lucie fair has a great schedule. They also have
grounds and buildings.

It is against the law

Animal cruelty is against the law. Animals are not our
property; they are living beingsthat-deserve our respect.
If this man is being abusive to the animal, the animal
needs to be taken away from him.

Letters


Inform your
congressman
Dear Editor:
Two very important proposed laws soon are coming up for
votes in the U.S. Congress. We need to stay informed and to
e-mail, phone, fax, and write our senators and house of rep-
resentative how we feel about this legislation.
U.S. HR 254 is the proposed Hate Crimes Law, which
essentially would prohibit our pastors from preaching the
Bible from their pulpits in our churches. Pastor Danny Nalli-
ah, of Australia, traveled to Fort Lauderdale recently to speak
to the big Reclaim America conference about the dangers of
this proposed bill now being debated in the judiciary com-
mittee.
Proponents of similar legislation nearly succeeded in its
passage in the Australian Parliament. He mounted a pas-
sionate plea against this Hate Crimes bill, even in the face of
jail threats and huge legal fees, and he blocked this assault
against free speech. "Reject this as a bad law," he told con-
vention goers. "Stand up for you nation, vote no on this bill,"
he said.
The other bill threatening the average American's liberty is
called the Fairness Doctrine bill. This bill virtually would
outlaw talk show hosts and would require broadcasters to
give both sides equal time, giving the Federal Communica-
tions Commission and other bureaucracies even more con-
trol over what we can hear, watch, ad read.
Mr. Nalliah urged Americans to .speak up about giving
away all of our freedoms in this great nation.
For information, you can go to his Web site at
www.catchthefilre.com.

Leave snowbirds alone
Dear Editor:
Why pick on snowbirds or people who support the Florida,
lifestyle?
. I have had it with public resentment for people who have
the opportunity to own two homes, and in my opinion, are


not being treated fairly in regard to real estate taxes.
The state of Florida should be thankful that the so-called
snowbirds contribute more to the welfare of Florida and the
community they reside in, because they generally do not
have resident children living at home and attending our
schools. Therefore, they help pay for their upkeep, and they
support our lifestyle, etc., etc.
In my opinion, they should receive homestead exemp-
tions like everyone else.
What bothers me personally is the fact that the value of my
home assessment goes up every year, even though I have
lived in it for nearly seventeen years and still do.
I appreciate the fact that there is a cap on raising real estate
taxes in Florida; however, I simply do believe that my assess-
ment should'fiot change from the. original purchase price
until the house is sold and the assessment re-evaluated to
the new purchase price.
In conclusion, stop picking on the snowbirds. We need
them, and we need to treat them fairly and equally, as per-
manent residents.
Thank God for the snowbirds.

Education is important
Dear Editor-
Education must be number one.
We have good teachers, but our students need to be able to
handle their subjects, and not complain.
Our education must make a comeback.
We need more people to learn that we are the number one
nation, with a great education system that has been rooted
in our beginnings. A great education that has been earned

Nitrogen is not hot air

Dear Edit6r:

In regards to Mr. Earl Stewart's fictional story about
nitrogen in tires, I would like a chance to rebut.
First of all, I'm not too sure where Mr. Stewart got his
information about nitrogen.
Most of the machines on the market produce 95 to 98
percent nitrogen, and supply a, purity tester. Mr. Stewart
would know, being as he has a science degree, that nitro-
gen has no moisture in it.
When you have a tire with 72 percent air, you have
moisture in it. At high temperatures it will expand, and
in low temperatures it will decrease.
See Mr. Stuart, when you have moisture in a tire, you
have thermal expansion. With nitrogen the moisture is
removed, from the air, giving you even air pressure in
your tires. No matter if it is hot, or cold.
Also, I'm not too sure where Mr. Stewart got his pricing.
At the dealerships we do business with, they are getting
from $29.99 to $39.99 a.car.
That is a far cry from $199. And, all of the customers are
not charging for refills-no charge for refills.
The cost of the equipment to the dealer is about $6,000.
Mr. Stewart, this is not a 2000 percent profit. Do the
math!
I'm sure that NASA, the Airlines, and the National Asso-
ciation for Stock Car Auto Racing are not all wrong with
using nitrogen.
Earl Stewart, the U.S. Government says we waste tito
million gallons of fuel a day-with under inflated tires. -
Goodyear says 15 percent of under inflation equals,8
percent tread wear, and on 'mileage, a 2.5 percent
decrease in fuel economy.
Michelin supports the use of nitrogen in their tires.
With the use of nitrogen, it helps their tires hold pressure
over a longer period of time._ _
Bridgestone says that air-inflated tires lose an average

Elections office stays busy


even without an election


BY MATT DONEGAN
Staff writer


Just because there has-
n't been and won't be an
election in months does-
n't mean the employees at
the St. Lucie County
Supervisor of Elections
office are sitting on their
duffs.
Right now, for example,
they face the monoto-
nous task of purging the
voter registration file.
There are 16,033 regis-
tered voters in the county
who haven't voted,
updated their registra-
tion, or had any contact
with the Elections office
in the past two years.
To assure these people
still live in St. Lucie, and
still live at all for that
matter, the Supervisor of
Elections office is in the
process of mailing a
notice to each of them. If
the notice is not returned
undeliverable, the voter
stays on file. If it's
returned, the voter is sent
a final notice. After that,
the office removes them
from the system.
There will be 9,221 vot-
ers removed from the
voter registration file in
2007, said Gertrude Walk-
e,,r, who has been supervi-
sor of elections for 26
years.
The workers in her
office make changes to
reflect when voters move,
die, or are convicted of a
felony.
"We are constantly
maintaining the voter
registration file," she said.
In the end, Ms. Walker
said it's the voter's duty to
keep the Elections office
informed of address
changes.


"Every county has to have a plan to ensure
elections can still go on even if you have a
hurricane or some other disaster."

Gertrude Walker
St Lucie County Supervisor of elections


Even though her
employees maintain the
county voter registration
file, residents are lumped
into one voter registra-
tion system in the state.
"Prior to January 2006,
we had individual county
registrations, so a person
could be registered three
or four times in the state
and we wouldn't know it,"
Ms. Walker said. "The
Help America Vote Act of
2002 required every state
by January 2006 have a
single voter registration
system so they could
check for duplicates to
ensure the one person,
one vote principal is
abided by."
The Supervisor of Elec-
tions office is also cur-
rently gearing up for a
special hospital district
election in June. Lawn-
wood Regional Medical
Center & Heart Institute
is holding the referendum
to seek public support for
a trauma center in St.
Lucie County. If it passes,
the referendum would
create a county-wide
Municipal Services Tax-
ing Unit to fund trauma
services at the facility.
To get ready for the ref-
erendum, Elections office
employees must notify all
80 polling places for
scheduling, as well as
inform and schedule
training for poll workers.
The employees will also
have to get the phones
turned on in those polling


places, order ballots and
supplies, run a diagnostic
test on each voting
machine, program the
machines, prepare for
early voting and even
make sure that signs
identifying polling places
are still standing.
Even if there's a hurri-
cane around election
time, the show must go
on. That's why the Super-
visor of Elections office is
currently working, on its
continuity of operation
plan.
"Every county has to
have a plan to ensure
elections can still go on
even if you have a hurri-
cane or some other disas-
ter," Ms. Walker said. "You
have to ensure all of the
records are safe. If the
whole office disappeared,
there would have to be
some way for us to con-
duct an election, which
they had to do in numer-
ous counties in 2004."
Natural disaster or not,
some Port St. Lucie resi-
dents will be voting in dif-
ferent poll locations
soon. Ms. Walker and her
staff are currently creat-
ing another precinct by
splitting Precinct 22 in
the South Bend- area.
Precinct 22 now has
5,600 people, which Ms.
Walker said is too many.
"Most people think we
go to sleep after the elec-
tion, or take a vacation or
something," she said.


Rants
From page A6
As much as I wish I could help you, I
don't know who, or where, you are.
My suggestion is to just keep calling
until somebody responds and investi-
gates.
God bless you for caring.

Where is he?

This is in response to the article called
"Who will help."
The person wrote about a neighbor who
is taunting, and not taking very good care
of their dog, and that nobody is con-
cerned.
I bet if you gave the person's name or
address, you would have about a thou-
sand people going out to rescue that dog.
Just let us know where he is.

Timing is off

I have a safety concern with the Bear
Bay baseball game at the Mets Stadium,
and the fifth graders who attend this
game.
The Bay officers have the super soaker
ram bams that are being aimed at the stu-
dents while the game is being played,
instead of when there is a break in the
action.
With the announcement by the Mets
staff that fans have to pay attention to the
possibility of foul balls coming into the
stands with the possible risk of injury, you
have three thousand students who need
to be paying attention, and watching the
game instead of being distracted by Bay
officers who should know better.
It should be a fun day, hopefully without
injury.

36 cents in seventy years
This is a reply to a rant about the postal
service.
I remember when I was 4 or 5, the
stamps were only 3 cents. Now, seventy
years later, they have only raised 36 cents.
How would you like to only get a 36
raise in seventy years?
I have a very nice mail person. Maybe
the ranter should have to go to the post'
office and pick up their mail.

Homeowners Insurance too high


home insurance went up 200 percent in
theJlast two years.
Now they say they are going to lower our
insurance rates by 20 percent, and they
expect us to be excited about it.
Something is wrong with this picture.
The dumbing of America comes to mind

Response to Shame,
Shame, Shame

Well, now that my blood pressure is
level again, I guess it's time to let my
thoughts be heard.
I am responding to an unfortunate piece
titled Shame, Shame, Shame that I read in
your Viewpoint section on Friday, March
9.
While the writer accurately quotes the
Department of Health statistics on HIV in
St. Lucie County, the person does not
accurately capture the work done by the
professional community every day to
combat and address the HIV/AIDS epi-
demic.
I take issue with only one sentence in
that "rant." I'll quote, "Don't think, like I
did, that there are agencies for this type of
thing [HIV prevention]. The agencies are
there, but they are too bogged down in
meetings, committees, focus groups, and
red tape."
To say we do nothing but get tied up in
our own bureaucracy is not only inaccu-
rate, but an insult to our efforts year after
year.
To use the language of shame, shame,
shame is exactly what keeps people from
seeking help for themselves, the thing
that sets people apart from their neigh-
bors, the feeling that drags down HIV+
people and makes them feel less than
worthy, the thing that keeps people from
getting tested and knowing their own sta-
tus so that they don't infect other people. I
could go on, but you get my point.
For people just beginning to get a
glimpse into the problem of HIV/AIDS in
our community, our nation, or the world,
it must be frightening and overwhelming,
as it should be.
The problem is enormous. There are
billions of dollars and countless work
efforts put into prevention and treatment
of this virus. In our community, the Trea-
sure Coast, there are many dedicated
people and agencies dedicated to doing
something each day. ,
We welcome the help of those that
would like to volunteer! Collectively, we
compete annually for dollars to serve the

Trauma
From page A3
"I support the trauma
center," said Chief Size-
more.
"Anything we can do to
expedite the care of trau-
ma cases is better for the
patient. I would have
stood by it even if Martin


Memorial had been the
first one out of the box and
wanted to build a trauma
center."
Chief Sizemore said his
department's involvement
with trauma patients
enables him to have this
perspective.
"We do every bit of the
pre-hospital care in the
county, so naturally we


support it," he said.
St. Lucie County Com-
missioner Doug Coward
and Port St. Lucie City
Councilman Christopher
Cooper did not immedi-
ately return calls for com-
ment.
Mr. Harman stresses
that Martin Memorial has
no personal interest in the
building of a trauma cen-


ter elsewhere on the Trea-
sure Coast.
"It has nothing to do
with our building a hospi-
tal in western Port St,
Lucie. We aren't proposing
a trauma center there. And
we don't have plans to
have a trauma center at
Martin Memorial. That
would not be in the best
interest of the communi-


ty," said Mr. Harman.
"The distance to St.
Mary's is not significant
for trauma transportation,
and we should continue to
use them. It's very impor-
tant that there are excel-
lent trauma centers, and
how do you get that if you
are only seeing 200 cases a
year?" he said.

We provide outreach to

their homes when there is
no phone to contact them.
We pay for cabs and buses
so that they can get to the

provide thousands of free
HIV tests each year so that
people know their status

We provide specialized

run support groups so
HIV/AIDS positive people
don't feel alone and can
get the up-to-date infor-

In those meetings that we
are so "bogged down" in,
we create tools that allow
us to search for people that
are not in care, find out
why, and. refer them back
into care.
We create customer satis-'

We develop quality assur-.

The Spirit Guide, with

He says, "Until we admit

That's a load of bull!
During our lifetime, we
have seen where one person
can make a big difference.
Look at the efforts of indi-

example.
Great political leaders
have made a difference.
We can all make little dif-
ferences by showing kind-
ness to others'in many ways
each day. This reverberates
out to others like ripples
from a stone thrown in a
, pond.
Also, when we disagree
with issues in life, we owe it
to ourselves and others to
get involved in the political
process whether it is send-
ing a letter to a newspaper
editor, or contacting our
politicalleaders. '
In addition, think of all the
volunteer work people do
that makes a difference in
the lives of others.

Excel Air

BY ROBIN RINKE
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE Since
1991, more than 18,000 cus-
tomers have looked to Excel
Air Conditioning and Heat-
ing in Port St. Lucie for pro-
fessional and timely service.
Owners, Nigel and Linda
Jardine are originally from
England and purchased the
established, 16-year-old
business last fall.
With more than 20 years of
experience in the air/heating
industry, Mr. Jardine's
expertise was a perfect fit to
the already flourishing air
conditioning and heating
business.
Mr. Jardine said Excel has a
reputation for keeping its
word with customers and
that is very important to him
as well. He said customers
like the assurance of being
able to call Excel and getting
service the same day.
"When we say we will be
there, we will," said Mr. Jar-
dine. "If you call today, we
will be there today. We prom-
ise to give the highest level of

STUART -Veterans who
served in any war of the
past 50 years will now have
an opportunity to voice
their concerns or offer
their expert advice, thanks
to a new council formed
by U.S. Rep. Tim Mahoney
(D-Palm Beach Gardens).
Rep. Mahoney has

meeting is scheduled for
April in Port Charlotte.
The council will include
veterans of WWII, the
Korean War, the Vietnam
War, Operation Enduring
Freedom and the Iraq War.

Navy veteran and Director
ofVeteran's Affairs for Mar-
tin County, is on the new
council.
"I think it's good because
it will give the vets in Mar-
tin County a voice with
Congressman Mahoney,
and we can keep him
informed regarding legis-
lation affecting veterans,"
said Mr. Haddox.
Other council members
from Martin County
include Joe Celli, a WWII
U.S. Army veteran from
Jensen Beach; Bill Shaw, A


U.S. Army veteran of both
the Korean and Vietnam
Wars and a commander of
the VFW Post 4194 in Stu-

tor of the St. Lucie County
Veteran Service Office in

Mr. Hiott said there are
37,000 veterans in St. Lucie
County and this council
will allow the voices of
those veterans to be heard.
"The veterans will be
able to let their frustra-
tions known if they have
them. And we will be able
to inform them of what's
going on ,with things like
benefits and 'disability
claims," said Mr. Hiott.
"I'm truly honored to be
on his council and to pro-
vide some subject-matter
expertise," he said.
Other St. Lucie County
residents on the council
are Thomas Flett, of Port

From page A2
in Port St. Lucie, who
donates his time and talents
to LOTWC.
"I never participated in a
medical missions trip," said
Dr. Subramanian. "I always
wanted to go on one. When I
heard about LOTWC I
signed up to go to Hon-
duras."
. Dr. Subramanian said
helping the people of Hon-
duras was fulfilling and hard
work.
"The first trip I went on
they did not have an operat-
ing room. It was very primi-
tive," he said. "There was no
running water, no fans or
lights and we operated in a
10-foot by 20-foot room.")
He said it felt good to help
the people.
"I would go even if I had to
pay my own way. This is why
I went to medical school," he
added.
Mrs. Banks said the charity
receives donations through-
out the year and hosts an
annual fundraiser/dinner to
help pay for the trips so pro-
fessionals such as Dr. Subra-
manian can go without wor-
rying about money.
"We raise the money so the
medical professionals can
go," she said. "We cover the
cost and they volunteer their
time and care."
Months before the surgical
team leaves for their desti-
nation LOTWC begins plan-
ning the trip.
First, the volunteer doctors
must be selected in order to
solicit donations of the
appropriate supplies.
Once the specialists are
picked the surgical packs,
medications, surgical instru-
ments, monitoring equip-
ment and anything else that
is required for the type of
surgeries to be performed
are gathered.
Other professionals such
as anesthesiologists and
nurses are also recruited.
Travel arrangements are
then made for the surgical
team members.
During this time, the coun-


try to be visited has local
priests campaigning among
the poor and lining up
patients with the greatest
need, who also coincide
with the doctor's specialties.
Typically a mission trip
runs one week. The team
flies out on a Saturday, does
triage on patients on Sun-
day, performs surgeries
Monday through Friday, and
flies home the following Sat-
urday.
With each trip approxi-
mately 100 patients receive
surgery. Most of the patients
had nowhere else to turn.
The charities recently
completed a joint venture
with the Franciscan Friars of
the Renewal from Honduras
to construct a new medical
facility in Comayagua, Hon-
duras. The medical facility is
called San Benito Jose and
also hosts other internation-
al surgical teams each
month, and serves as a med-
ical clinic all year round.
Now Africa has been
added to the list of countries


LOTWC is helping.
This year, a surgical team
was sent to Tanzania for the
first time to set up a surgical
unit. The team was also able
to perform operations on
the pioneer trip.
Mrs. Banks said the growth
of the charity is exciting.
"I love what is happening,"
Mrs. Banks said. "Now, we


get to touch even more
lives."

donation, call (772) 221-

New Port St. Lucie Police officer Maria Degennaro,

Officer Degennaro was one of 12 officers sworn in by

of the phenomenal
growth we've experi-
enced in the last
decade," Assistant
Chief Reuther said. "It's
a great opportunity for
them today. The
opportunities are more
evident for them. In
1980 we didn't have a
building, just space in
the old City Hall. They
get to see the growth
and opportunities
because the structures
are in place. In my day,
we had to just about
reinvent the wheel."
When Assistant Chief
Reuther was sworn in
as one of Port St.
Lucie's first police offi-
cers, there were only
10,000 residents.


Today, the population is at
160,000.
"Today is history in the
making," Assistant Chief
Reuther said. "It's an excit-
ing day."
Officer Knaggs was not
the only officer sworn in
that day who calls Port St.
Lucie their hometown.
Giselle Borras-Aponte, 32,
grew up in Port St. Lucie
and graduated from Fort
Pierce Central in 1993, and
decided to follow her
dream of becoming a
police officer when the
chance arose. Her father
was an officer with the
New York Police Depart-
ment for 30 years, and she
wanted to follow her dad's
footsteps.
"It feels remarkable,"
Mrs. Borras-Aponte said.
"I can't wait to get out on
the streets. I'm glad to be
one of Port St. Lucie's
finest."

Letters
From page A6
of 2.7 lbs. per month, and
the nitrogen- inflated tires
lose an average of 0.7 lbs


.per month.
I don't think all of these
organizations can be
wrong.
Mr. Stewart, I'm not too
sure how you did your test-
ing. But, in my opinion, you


did it the wrong way.
Nitrogen-inflated tires do
not age as quickly as air-
inflated tires. Nitrogen-
inflated tires minimize
blowouts. Nitrogen-inflated
tires improve vehicle han-


dling through proper infla-
tion. Nitrogen is an inert,
non-combustible and non-
flammable gas. Nitrogen is a
stable gas, providing more
constant pressure. Nitrogen
is a dry gas with no corrosive
properties as found in com-
pressed air.
In closing, I would like to
know why Mr. Stewart is
knocking something that is
good for his customers, is
safer, and saves money on
fuel, and wear and tear on
tires.
What are you thinking Mr.
Earl Stewart?
Al Sammartino
CoastalAutomotive

Earl Stewart of Stewart
Toyota responds:


Thanks for your letter,
which raises some good
questions.
I will address the specific
points made by you, but
rather than turn this into a
boring scientific, academic
debate, I also have an inter-
esting proposal for you.
You and I will each fork
over $10,000 to be held in
escrow by an independent
third party. We will select
an impartial, qualified
tester of tires such as the
American Automobile
Association or New Eng-
land Technical Institute. We
will ask this organization,
using scientific method, to
determine whether nitro-
gen-filled tires cause a car
to get better gas mileage
and longer tire wear than
tires filled with air.
If the results are that
nitrogen-filled tires are
proven to give statistically
significant better gas
mileage and wear, my
escrow check will be donat-
ed to your favorite charity.
If not, my favorite charity is
the Salvation Army. Please
call me on my cell phone at
(561) 358-1474 so that we
can get started. It's a win-
win. Money goes to charity
either way and one of us is
going to learn something
he didn't know.
Before I address the
points you made in your
letter, I think it is only fair
that the readers of my col-
umn and your letter know
that you and I have met
before. I was surprised that
you didn't mention that in
your letter. I know that you

will recall that the compa-
ny owned by you, Coastal
Automotive Equipment
Sales, was an unsuccessful
bidder three years ago
when I was buying
$250,000 worth of
hydraulic lifts for my new
service department. I only
mention this in the. inter-
ests of complete disclosure
to our readers.
The first point I will
address are your words,
"I'm not sure where Earl got
his pricing." This refers to
my statement that car deal-
ers were charging as much
as $199 for nitrogen in four
tires.'
I am enclosing a picture
of a price sticker showing a
$199 price from a dealer
who may well be one of
your nitrogen customers,
Some of your statements
about nitrogen are accu-
rate. Nitrogen does expand
less than air, very slightly
less. The co-efficient of
expansion of nitrogen is
about 20 percent less than
that of air, but, of course air
is 78 percent nitrogen. It is
also true that filling a tire
with nitrogen will reduce
the amount of humidity
inside the-tire.
Nitrogen molecules are
larger than oxygen mole-
cules and will take longer
to permeate the tire wall,
but, as you know, 78 per-
cent of air is already made
of nitrogen. What all of
your points citing the
superiority of nitrogen
don't mention is that
because air is already
mainly nitrogen, the dif-
ferences are so slight they
can't even be measured.
As I said in my column,
I tested tires nitrogen and
with air in my rental fleet
for many weeks and
therewas no measurable
difference in inflation.
A good analogy to using
nitrogen in your tires is
those Olympic swimmers
who shave their entire
bodies with the hope of
cutting off one one-hun-
dredth of a second in a
200-meter race.
I can see why NASCAR
uses nitrogen in tires. Its
cars run more than 200
mph at extremely high
temperatures and winners
are measured in hun-
dredths of seconds.
A lot of people put nitro-
gen in their tires because
they like to believe it helps,
but I challenge anybody to
show me a valid, scientific,
independent study that
proves nitrogen improves
gas mileage or tire wear.
I don't have a problem
with you selling nitrogen
to someone for a low price.
My wife and I take a lot of
vitamins and herbs that
have never been proven to
improve our health by
medical science, but we
are careful not to take any
that can be harmful. We
look at it this way: it might
help, it can't hurt and the
vitamins are cheap.
The only thing that
nitrogen can harm is the
pocketbook of the buyer
spending $199 for four
tires filled with a gas that
has never been proven to
help gas mileage or tire
wear.

CHAMBER RELOCATING IT'S


ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICES
The Board of Directors of the St. Lucie County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to
announce the relocation of the Chamber's Administrative offices in April 2007. The
Chamber will be a neighbor to the Economic Development Council of St. Lucie
County and the Economic Development Division of the St. Lucie County Government,
in the West View I building located in St. Lucie West off of 1-95 Exit 121.

' ."Locating in the same building with our allies at EDC will further assist our Chamber
in maintaining the recognition of being a first responder, as members seek access to
Serving the Chamber local or regional resources", states Rene' Arteaga, Senior Vice President/Area Executive
for more than 30 years! for Indian River National Bank and the President of the Chamber. "Members of our
unified Chamber look for an organization to' assist in promoting the community and creating venues for referrals and
networking. Housing our administrative office in the same building as EDC will enhance this vehicle of delivery",
Arteaga added.

This opportunity is part of the Chamber's short-term goals, as we continue the search to purchase property in a
central location for the administrative office.


Blazing the
Path to Build
our future


Yo \\ o!


To make this transition possible, we are requesting the commitment and assistance of our members
and the community. The Chamber Board unanimously voted not to utilize the proceeds of the recent
sale of the Port St. Lucie building, and earmarked those funds to be used for future land/building pur-
chase. Since these funds are not eligible for the lease expenditures of this transitional facility, we are
launching an equitable and reasonable invest-
ment campaign to help support this effort. s-s


';, 7 We are extremely pleased and look forward to
s serving the community from this transitional
facility, alongside our Economic Development
partners. We believe our strength lies with the businesses that
we represent. We are proud to be your unified Chamber of
Commerce and hope that you share our vision to provide the
best possible service to our members and our community in
the manner, which should be expected.

If you have any questions, please contact Executive
Director, Linda Cox, at 772.595.9999 or via email at
LCox@StLucieChamber.org. We look forward to continu-
ing to serve you.

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee". ----


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

If our culture

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 Califomia, but is still
legal in Florida. The reason you charge this
fee is simply to increase the price of the car
and your profit in such a manner that it is not
noticed by your customers. This is just plain
wrong. I used to charge a dealer fee ($495)
and when I stopped charging it a few years
ago it was scary. But I did it because I could
no longer, in good conscience, mislead my
customers. Just because everybody else
was doing the same thing, did not make it
correct.'


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

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
leam 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.

Don't let

glaucoma

steal your

eyesight

G glaucoma is a thief
that can steal your
eyesight before you
even know you have a
problem.
As with so many illnesses,
there are not symptoms in
the beginning, and early
detection offers the best
hope for controlling the
disease and preventing
blindness.
The National Eye Insti-
tute, a division of the
National Institutes of
Health, has a wealth of
information about eye
diseases, including glauco-
ma.
First of all, glaucoma is a
not just one disease, but a
group of diseases that can
damage the optic nerve.
The most common type,
open-angle glaucoma,
occurs when normal fluid
pressure inside the eye
builds up and damages the
optic nerve.
If the damage to the
nerve is unchecked,
glaucoma will cause loss of
vision and permanent
blindness. That's why
checking and controlling
the pressure is so impor-
tant, especially if you are at
risk for glaucoma.
Those at highest risk:
African-Americans
older than age 40,
Everyone older than
age 60, especially those of
Mexican descent.
People with a family
history of glaucoma.
People with high blood
pressure.
African-Americans are
five times more likely than
Caucasians to get glauco-
ma and lose their vision, so
it is extremely important
that African-Americans
older than 40 have regular
eye exams.
Ronald Frenkel of the
East Florida Eye Institute,


Recipe No. I (NIB)
As you will see, this is a very
spicy dish. You can cut the heat
by using sweet dried salami and
reducing the pepper. Do not add
salt. There is plenty of salt in the
meats.
4 ounces Genoa salami
4 ounces proscuitto (Italian
cured ham) ,
4 ounces boiled ham
4 ounces hot, dried salami or
pepperoni
12 eggs
1 (15-ounce) container ricotta
1 cup grated Parmesan or
Romano cheese
1/4 cup coarse ground black
pepper
Piecrust (recipe follows)
Cut meat in small pieces or
thin slices; set aside.
Beat eggs with ricotta, grated
cheese and pepper. Add meat
and blend well.
Use a large 9- by 13-inch, 2-
inch-deep glass baking dish. Fit
piecrust into dish, fluting the
- -edges. Pour in filling. If you have


Hello smart shoppers, hope
you had a good week.
Easter is coming! Today's
column will give you recipes for
very old, traditional Italian Easter
pies. If it weren't for the requests
I have received, I would never
have thought of printing them.
They involve a lot of work, but
for some people, tradition is
tradition.
Pizza Rustica is a spicy, meat
pie. I didn't think anyone in the
family still made this very
expensive not to mention high-
fat dish. Then I found out my
cousin, Irene Sacco, still does. I
will give you her recipe and
another from a friend.
Ricotta pie is a sweet, cheese-
cake-like dessert that's not too
difficult to make.
Another Easter pie is Pizza
Granna. Pizza means pie in
Italian. It is my favorite and is
made with whole grains.
After recently tasting Irene's
version, I knew I just had to have
the recipe.
The ricotta and grain pies are
considered sweet pies and have a
cookie-like crust. They require
the optional addition of candied
diced orange and citron.
I always thought citron meant
all kinds of candied citrus, didn't
you? I went to my World Book
encyclopedia and found, "The
citron tree, which is native to
Asia, bears a grapefruit-size
lemon-like fruit with a thick rind.
The fruit is considered inedible,
but the aromatic rind is candied
and used in baking."
While reading this informa-
tion, I remembered a huge,
beautiful tree my parents had in

Ideas and
Comparisons


Using a butter substitute
instead of butter
in baked goods is usually fine,
but when making a piecrust,
if butter is specified,
you must use butter.
Since the dough must be chilled
before rolling,
it will be impossible to handle
if you use a substitute.





The Guru's
Special Hint

Candied citrus fruit and citron
are the same thing, right?
Find out in today's column.


Boynton Beach. It
was there when they
bought the house and
we could never
understand why
anyone would plant
such a strange ,
"grapefruit" tree with .,
a thick rind and large 4 1
juice cells that
contained no juice.,
One day an Asian
family knocked on
mom's door and
asked if they could
buy the fruit. Evidently they saw
the tree from the road.
Since she wasn't using them
she told them to take what they
wanted. They wouldn't hear of
that, it was not an "honorable"
thing to do. Twenty-five cents
each seemed fair and they
picked several. A few days later
many more friends appeared
and as the tree was.getting bare
the price went up to 75 cents
each.
When I finally learned what
citron was, I put two and two
together; mom and dad had a
citron tree.
Slippery Crisco: Some of
today's recipes contain Crisco,
which has been around since
1911. Before that lard (pork fat)
was used.
Today's Crisco has no trans-
fats. The original blue label, as
well as the "new" green label,
which states it has no trans-fats,
have the same nutritional list.
The only difference is the green
label version has a higher price.
Tricky, huh?

PIZZA RUSTICA


To Your Health
Holiday baking
is usually high
in fat, cholesterol- and calories.
Today's recipes all freeze well.
Don't make too much, though.
Twice a year is fine,
more is bad news.

BONDING
Q: What is bonding?
A: Bonding is a general term used for the technique of etching a tooth surface
and attaching adhesive composites to repair broken teeth, freshen the appearance
of stained teeth and close spaces between front teeth. The application of veneers,
for instance, tooth-colored laminates that improve the appearance of teeth,
involves bonding. Bonding can also be used on the chewing surfaces of a child's B
permanent back teeth to lower the chance of decay. The composite used in this i' .'
case would be called a sealant.
In some cases your dentist can perform the bonding procedure right on the teeth while you're in the
chair. Come veneers are made in a laboratory after the dentist has taken impressions of your teeth.
The tooth-colored laminates are actually put on the teeth at subsequent appointment. As you might
imagine, the laboratory-processed veneers are more expensive and require at least two visits. Also,
bondings are not a substitute for crowns. When a tooth needs a crown, only a crown will do. Talk ,
with your dentist about the various techniques available for repairing or just sprucing up a tooth. k

'Consumer Reports' Magazine is your

best friend when in choosing a car


If you don't already
subscribe to Consumei
Reports, you should. I
have been a subscriber for
as long as I can remember
I rarely buy any product
without consulting this
great magazine. I also
subscribe to Consumer
Reports online edition,
which is even more
current than the regular
magazine.
I recently received their
annual auto issue, which
no car buying family
should be without. All
libraries would should
have this on hand.
Don't be fooled by other
magazines with similar
names purporting to
objectively analyze and
recommend products.
There is only one Con-
sumer Reports.
They do not accept any
advertising and therefore,
are not beholden to any
corporation. They even go
beyond this and will not
allow a retailer or manu-
-facturer to use the name
Consumer Reports in their
advertising. Even if
Consumer Reports gives a
product a great rating,
that company cannot
mention this in their its
advertising. If they do,
they get sued by Con-
sumer Reports.
No other company goes
this far and is this
"squeaky clean."
J.D. Powers is a company
that ranks and compares
lots of products including
cars, but they allow
--companies to use the JD
Powers name to advertise
their products when they
'rate them good. You can
.understand why a con-
sumer might be just a little
more skeptical of J. D.
Powers' objectivity than
Consumer Reports.
I am not saying that
Consumer Reports is
infallible. They do make
mistakes, and they have
, been successfully sued by
,some companies that
were affected by their
mistakes in testing. But

On Cars


this is very rare.
As a car dealer for more
than forty 40 years, I have
not always liked what I
read about all of the
makes and models of cars
I have sold, but I grudg-
ingly had to admit that the
reports were almost
always accurate. I have to
confess that with'some
make and model cars I
have sold over the years, I
was very thankful that the
circulation of Consumer
Reports is not very large.
Their circulation is
growing as consumers
become more educated
and sophisticated. It's not
as easy as it once was to
sell aYugo to most con-
sumers.
This annual auto issue,
which is on the news-
stands now, should be a
mandatory read before
you buy your next used or
new car.
Here are some of the
articles in this issue: "Top
Picks" (the best new
vehicles they have tested),
"Best and Worst" (tells you
the ones you definitely
shouldn't buy), "Coming
for 2008," "Who Makes
tThe Best Cars" (best
manufacturers), "Buy
Better on the Web" (tThe
Internet is the best place
to buy your next can,
"Reliability Trends" (repair
histories on all makes and
models), "What's Next in
Auto Safety," and "Used
Cars, Best and Worst."

Follow easy steps to clean up


clutter on your desktop


Tired of the way your
Windows desktop
looks? Well, why don't
you change it?
Many people are sur-
prised to find out that they
don't have to live with the
desktop layout that comes
on their new computer.
Windows makes it easy for
you to set things up just the
way you like them.
That's a good thing to
know, especially if your
machine came loaded with
a bunch of icons all over
the place.
Icons for trial software,
Internet service pitches,
and a whole bunch of extra
icons all over the place are
mostly just duplicates of
what can be found in the
start menu.
I've seen Windows
desktops just swamped
with icons cluttering up the
works on brand spanking
new machines no less. It's
no wonder people have
trouble making heads or
tails out of things when
they get a new machine.
Fortunately, you can do
something about it.
Windows (Macs too)
allows you to set your
desktop anyway you like
(in fact, it even has a
desktop cleanup "wizard"
that you can set to pop up
once a month or so remove
unused desktop short
cuts).
I prefer to ignore the
wizard and keep on top of
things myself). Gaining
control of a cluttered
desktop only takes a few
minutes. Once you have
things under control, it's a
cinch to keep things in
check.
First let's start with what
should be on the desktop.


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This
Now, what should be
there is pretty subjective,
but I'll go through what I
like to see on a well-
organized desktop.
If you disagree and thing
something should be
added or removed that's
great. There are no rules in
stone and the important
thing to remember is it's
your computer, you can set
it up the way that you want
it.
Earlier versions of
Windows (95,98, ME and
2000) all have some
standard icons that can't be
removed from the desktop,
but Windows XP lets you
eliminate everything but
the recycle bin.
For the purpose of this
column, we will focus on
Windows XP machines
because that's what most
machines come loaded
with. (Don't even ask me
about the new Windows
Vista. I don't know yet.)
I like to see the following
icons on the desktop: my
computer, my documents,
Internet Explorer and the
recycle bin.
. Having those icons on
the desktop enables you to
access important areas of
your machine without


having to click start and
look for where you are
trying to get within the
start menu.
For instance, being able
to access the my docu-
ments folder right from the
desktop can be a real time
saver without the frustra-
tion of trying to find it in a
roundabout way.
So, we've narrowed
things down pretty much
to just four icons.
Now, what do we do with
the rest of them?
Most people's first
reaction is to delete them.
If you are familiar with
me, and how I use comput-
ers, then you may know
how I feel about the delete
button. If I were king, I'd
have the delete key stricken
from the keyboard.
More people get into
trouble with their
machines from the com-
pulsive urge to delete
things whenever they want
to clean house.
In the "old days" when
hard drives were puny,
space was a big issue and it
was important to keep as
few superfluous files as
possible. But with today's
high capacity systems, it is
usually better to simply
move unused files out of
sight to a place where they
can be recovered in the
event you do decide that
you need that short cut.
What I recommend is to
create a folder on the
desktop and call it some-
thing like "desktop clutter."
(The aforementioned
desktop cleanup wizard
creates a folder called
unused desktop shortcuts;
essentially the same thing).
Once you have your
folder created, it's a simple
matter to just drag and
drop all of the icons you
want off the desktop into
the new folder. You can
even drag and drop
multiple icons in one shot,
making the whole cleanup
process easier.
Here's how we do it in
just a few easy steps.
First "right click" (click
once with the right hand

Positive thinking helps seed of greatness in heart germinate


Lately, there has been a
lot of conversation
about "positive
thinking." There is a great
book by Bob Frissell, "You
are a Spiritual Being
Having A Human Experi-
ence."
The theme of the book is
similar to "The Spirit Guide
philosophy" and the
popular book and movie,
"The Secret."
If there is a common
thread that ties positive
universal thinking together
it has to be "faith."
Lack of faith creates fear,
doubt and indecision.
When we learn to live
and stay in faith, the
universe will bring the
right people into our lives.
Our luck increases and we
attract the right work,
companions and experi-
ences.
The soul of every human
is like a magnet. The
supreme law of the uni-
verse is "like attracts like."
What goes around comes
back around multiplied.
It's all about energy and
the way we use it. Energy
moves in waves. We see
that in the waves and
ripples in the ocean.
In the electric universe,
there are radio waves,
television, ultra violet,
infrared, microwaves and
many other kinds that
transmit energy.
Humans have the capa-.
bility of using thought


waves, along with waves of
desire and passion to
attract the physical mani-
festation of the thing
desired.
We can't ride two horses
at the same time.
The same thing is true
about something we want.
If we let fear or doubt take
over our faith, then fear
wins and positive desire is
choked out.
Faith is the end result of
three other divine princi-
ples when we allow them
to work for and through us.
Surrender to a higher
power: The first is to
surrender to our higher
power. When we let
compulsive behavior,
addictions or negative
people take control of our
lives we become powerless
over the negativity.
Restore your faith in the
possibility of a better life
and the universe will begin
to create divine connec-
tions.
* Surrender creates
patience: Do you have
patience? When you plant
a seed in the garden, you
water it, cover it up,
surrender it to the energy
and soil and wait. You don't
go out every day and dig it
up to see if it's growing.
This impatience would kill
it.
* Surrender and
patience creates trust: We
are supposed to be chil-
dren of the universe.


JAMES TUCKED

The Spirit Guide
When we do our work,
the universe will do its
work. The issue of lack of
trust with others starts
because we lack trust in
the higher power. We think
we have to will everything
into being.
We don't.
When we trust the
universe first, our trust
issues with others begin to
improve. Like attracts like.
+ Trust in the power of
creation creates faith: Stay
in faith and the right doors
will begin to open. And
when one doesn't open, it
means the spirit world has
a better one waiting for
you. This is where surren-
der, patience and trust
enter in, and faith takes
over and brings a higher
blessing.
It also keeps us from
being involved with
negative or controlling
people. The universe is
smarter than we are.

Until we make these
divine connections, we see
things on the surface. The
universe sees in our hearts.
We become like those we
associate with.
A healthy mind is patient.
A healthy heart knows
trust. A healthy soul has
faith.
Surrender creates the
desired results.

Keeping the faith

Faith will put you in the
right place at the right time
and connect you with the
right people.
Are you doing what you


truly love in life?
Whenever we feel
struggle, pain, hardship or
our heart isn't in our work,
this is the universe, telling
us to stop. We aren't
supposed to struggle.
There is a better way.
A seed of greatness lives
in your heart right now
yearning to be set free.
The most important
thing you will ever do in
this life is to go inside, find
your true purpose and
destiny, bring it out and set
it free.
No one can enslave you


unless you let fear rob you
of your happiness.
The end result of living in
faith is the unconditional
love that begins, to fill your
heart.
You stop the war between
the head and heart, and
peace comes over you.
Stress begins to be
replaced with balance.
Your finances increase.
Fear has now been
replaced with faith.
You have now found
respect, love, honor,
dignity, nobility and true

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

sustainable future for St

Ronald Johnson, executive

Oral medications such as Viagra,

restoring erections for 65% of the 20
million American men who are affected
by erectile dysfunction (ED). However,
a third of all those suffering from ED

diabetes and

The Internal Penile Pump is cur-

not respond to medication. American
Medical Systems is the leading manu-

list of urologists who are recognized as a
center of excellence for this procedure in
the United States, performing hundreds
of Penile Pump insertions a year.

completely within the scrotum), fort

The control
and quality you
want; the pleasure your partner will

The highlight of this treatment is
that it restores the patient's control over
his body, so that he is able to obtain and
maintain an erection at will. Couples
are once again able to have spontaneous
sex. Normal sensation, .including
orgasm and ejaculation, is not affected.
The procedure is covered by most insur-
ance policies, including Medicare.

Learn World War II


history in Europe


The World War II
generation saved
Western civilization
from Nazi terror.
Among the very greatest
were the soldiers who
landed at Normandy on D-
Day, June 6, 1944, in the
largest military invasion
from the sea in the history
of the world.
Image Tours is one of
only a few tour operators
offering this WW II specific
itinerary. This is a 15-day
tour beginning in Amster-
dam and ending in Paris.
The tour takes travelers
to famous battle sites, war
museums and memorials.
Scenic and cultural
highlights are also includ-
ed, making this tour an
enjoyable combination of
learning, sightseeing and
reflection.
The tour in Amsterdam
features the neatly kept
pastures and canals of the
Dutch lowlands. While in
downtown Amsterdam,
you might want to visit the
Anne Frank house, where
the teenager hid with her
family and wrote her
poignant diary.
Then stop at the Wings
of Liberation Museum,
which focuses on the
landing of the 101st
Airborne Division, the
Screaming Eagles.
From there you will
travel to Remagen to view
the remains of the strategic
bridge that collapsed
under heavy use and
bombing during the Allied
advance over the Rhine in
March 1945.
A few miles south is
Boppard, where travelers
will board a pleasure boat
for an upstream ride on
the enchanting Rhine
River.
Then it's on to Nurem-
berg, where Hilter staged
his huge propaganda
rallies.
In Munich, you can visit
the hidden enclave chosen
by Hilter and his aides as a
mountain retreat, and pay
a thought-provoking visit
to the Dachau Concentra-
tion Camp.
Other highlights are the
town of Saverne and
Lorraine's American
Cemetery, the largest
American World War II
cemetery in Europe.
From there travelers


RONNIE ROBERTSON
Travel columnist

continue to Luxembourg,
where Gen. George S.
Patton is buried. While
there, visit the Luxem-
bourg National Museum
of Military History. Also
there will be a tour of the
World War I battlefields
near Verdun.
At Clairiere de
L'Armistice, you will find a
replica of the railroad car
in which the Armistice of
World War I was signed
and where the French were
made to sign a.declaration
of surrender to the Nazis
on June 22, 1940.
An entire day will be
spent touring the famous
Normandy landing
beaches. You will driize to
the coast and stop at
Pointe du Hoc to view the
German fortifications,
travel along to Utah Beach
and Ste.-Mere-Englise,
then onto Omaha Beach
and the American ceme-
tery.
The scenic and cultural
highlights of this tour
make it an enjoyable
combination of learning,
sightseeing and reflection.
The journey ends in
Paris, the "City of Lights,"
where you may wish to
take a Seine River cruise
and tour the Eiffel Tower.
Departure dates are
limited. Contact Gad-
about Travel to begin this
journey in American
history. Image Tours
offers discounts for early
bookings. Call today for
reservations and informa-
tion.

Two great plants that make


great landscape covers


Professional
Designs


Two great looking
landscape plants
available are the
bush Alamanda and
downy jasmine.

Bush alamanda
Most people associate
the Alamanda plant with
the large climbing variety
you see in many areas.
If you have a small area
to work with, this is not
desirable. In this case, try
the smaller bush Alaman-
.da.
This plant is the perfect
choice if you want.a deep
yellow color without the
need for a lot of space.
This variety is extremely
compact and can be easily
trimmed to fit almost any
need.
The plant grows to about
3 feet high and can have a
spread of around 4 feet.
The spread and height can
be controlled by trimming
as needed. As mentioned
earlier, the plant boasts
bright, deep yellow
flowers.
Bush Alamanda can
thrive in a variety of soil
conditions, including
acidic, sand and rich
topsoil. The plant has a
decent draught tolerance,
although it needs more
water then its sister plant
the brown bud Alamanda.
The bush can bloom
almost all year with the
majority of blooms
occurring during the
summer and fall months.
Also, the plant enjoys a
relatively pest free exis-
tence.
The plant does best in
full to partial sun. If the
plant is in a full-sun
environment, frequent


regularly, they will remain
shrubs and will not require
a trellis or fence.
If left unchecked, they
begin to show their climb-
ing characteristics and can
be trained on a trellis or
other suitable structure.
The plants boast a
distinctive white pinwheel
shaped flower that blooms
from spring through fall.
Downy jasmine can be
grown in either full or
partial sun, but must be
fertilized on a regular basis
to maintain optimum
health.
If you are using them as a
hedge, place the plants
about 4 feet apart. Using a
slow release fertilizer, such
as Osmocote, will allow
you to get time between
feedings.

His practice uses a

The best way to check
your eye health is to have a
comprehensive eye exam,
with drops to dilate the
pupils and enable the
doctor to see to the back-of
the eye.
An eye doctor or ophthal-
mologist, who is a medical
doctor, or a doctor of
optometry who has special
training in conditions of the
eye, can check for high eye
pressure and changes in the
retina, optic nerve and
cornea.
There are several tests
that may be performed:
Visual acuity check.
The common eye chart test
measures how far you see
at different distances
*Visual field test. This
helps measure side or
peripheral vision. Losing
side vision can be a sign of
glaucoma.
Dilation. The doctor
examines the eyes with
special magnifying lens to
check for signs of damage
or changes to the eye.
Tonometry. An instru-
ment measures the pres-
sure in the eye.
Pachymetry. Ultrasonic
waves measure the thick-
ness of the cornea.
Glaucoma is, like so many
diseases, a silent enemy e
that catches you unaware.
You feel fine, but the
damage is being done to
the eye well before your
sight is affected.
As with so many other
medical conditions, when
detected early the possibili-
ty of controlling the condi-
tion is good.
There are more medica-
tions and treatment
options today than ever
before.
I'll discuss some of them
next week.

watering will be needed
during the summer.
In order to increase the
size and density of the
canopy and to increase the
flower production, it is an
-excellent idea to pinch
back some of the develop-
ing shoots from time to
time.
If you want to use these
plants as a colorful hedge,
plant them about 4- to 5-
feet apart to get the
optimum effect.

Downy jasmine, aka
star jasmine
If you are looking for a.
nice-looking vine to cover
your trellis or fence, the
downy jasmine, also
known as star jasmine,
might be just the thing.
This sprawling vine is not
only great to look at, but it
also boasts a fair amount
of drought tolerance.
In the landscape, it can
be used as both a founda-
tion plant and climber.

Neil Simon's 'The Prisoner of Second Avenue' runs at the Barn Theatre through April 14.
From left to right are Jim Slattery and Arlette Eulo (sitting), and Jan Buzzeo, Tony
Richards, Hilma Whipple and Chris Marcazzolo (standing).


Barn Theatre takes no


prisoners in Simon play


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer

"The Prisoner of Sec-
ond Avenue," by Neil
Simon, is the comedic
tale of a middle-aged
Manhattan couple, Mel
and Edna Edison, who
deals with everything
from job loss to -a heat
wave to a garbage strike
to a nervous breakdown.
Audiences who attend
this production at the
Barn Theatre will have
the opportunity to see
how Simon takes the sim-
ple trials of life and
mines them for humor.
"This is an early Simon
work," said David Coons,
who is directing the play.
"It's very funny and prob-
ably not as dark as some
of his later stuff. It's
human nature, and there
is a darker side to us, but
it's one of his lighter
comedies."
The play has a small
cast, because it's really
about Mel and Edna Edi-
son, who are on stage
through most of the per-
formance.
Mr. Coons is very


pleased with his cast,
which features Jim Slat-
tery as Mel and Arlette
Eulo as Edna. Tony
Richards, Hilma Whipple,
Chris Marcazzolo and Jan
Buzzeo round out the
players.
"It's a great cast," he
said. "I am delighted
with the people that I
have. For this play it's
not about quantity but
quality. The people are
really outstanding in
their roles. I also want to
mention the assistant


director and stage man-
ager, Jose Torres, who will
probably put in more
time than anyone."
The Barn Theatre, 2400
E. Ocean Blvd., in Stuart,
presents "The Prisoner of
Second Avenue" through
April 14.
Performances are at 8
p.m. from Wednesday to
Saturday and 2 p.m. on
Sunday.
Tickets are $20; call the
box office at (772) 287-

In a telephone interview,
Mr. Grey spoke about how
the role of the Master of
Ceremonies in the theatri-

evolved.
'At first there was no role,
just excellent songs by John
Kander and Fred Ebb,", he
said. "There was no real
character. It was more like
a quick drawing or a sketch.


Hal Prince and I went about
making it more specific. It

a lot of resistance. What

entertainer


vant. When you're an actor,
you go about telling the
story the best you can, and
the rest is up to God and the
audience."
Mr. Grey won the Tony in
1962 for his performance
and was cast in the same
role in the film version of
"Cabaret," for which he
won an Oscar in 1972.
Although there were many
differences between the
two, he loved each of them
in different ways.
"I think they were both
done.by first-rate directori-
al artists who both made
history," he said. "For Hal
Prince, no one had seen
anything like it on the stage
before. For its time, it was
shocking.
"The film was made by a
consummate musical mas-
ter, Bob Fosse, who had a
great affinity and talent for
film-making," Mr. Grey
said. "No one has repeated
a musical with the depth
and originality. He
changed the form and it's
been imitated."
Mr. Grey said that while
the character in both the
play and the movie was evil,
in the film, the character
was more immediate and


specific, while the theatri-
cal role was painted with a
broader stroke.
"The theatrical role is
more abstract, and you can
put more of your own inter--
pretation on it," he said.
"It's a very different experi-
ence. In the film, the char-
acter is perhaps a little
darker and a bit more
grown-up. There were
some limitations in the the-
atre about homosexuality
(at that time) and Nazism is
dealt with more graphically
in the film.
Mr. Grey's theatrical'
career includes the starring
role in "George M.," a trib-
ute to George M. Cohan,
and a recent stint on Broad-
way as The Wizard in
"Wicked."
The son of nightclub
entertainer Mickey Katz,.
Mr. Grey grew up in show-
business and has been per-,
forming since he was 10.,
His show is semi-autobio-
graphical, he said.
"There's stuff about my
father, songs of my heroes,'.
like Irving Berlin. It's a way
of sharing my life with the
audience. They're the co-
stars. I tell stories. We'll
talk."

Treasure Coast Blues
Alliance member Ben
Prestage, a two-time award
winner at the International
Blues Challenge in Mem-
phis, has received invita-
tions to perform at blues
festivals around the United
States.

Local musician takes the


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
For a Hobe Sound
resident, the love of the
delta blues comes natu-
rally after growing up
listening to his father's
recordings of blues,
bluegrass and country
and western music.
"My dad had a guitar
sitting around," said Ben
Prestage, who recently
represented the Blues
Alliance of the Treasure
Coast at the Internation-
al Blues Challenge in
Memphis. "I started off
playing the trumpet and
teaching myself blues
licks from old records
and tapes."
The blues came natu-
rally to Mr. Prestage and
his father, as his grandfa-
ther was a Mississippi
sharecropper. His family
heritage is helping him to
make a name for himself
throughout the South-
east and beyond.
The career of Mr.
Prestage began develop-
* ing when he went to
Indian River Community
College to major in
music, but he wasn't
really interested in it as


an academic discipline,
"I wanted to play
traditional blues," he
said. "I started going out
and looking for places to
play for tips. When I
decided to do it full time,
I left (Indian River
Community College) and
started playing and
giving guitar lessons."
In 2003, Mr. Prestage
made his first appear-
ance at the International
Blues Challenge in
Memphis, the most
prestigious competition
of its kind for up-and-
coming blues musicians.
He represented the Blues
Alliance of the Treasure
Coast as a solo per-
former, and he is grateful
to the Alliance for its

County library branch celebrates


Florida Heritage Month


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

In honor of Florida
Heritage Month, author
Nancy Dale will offer a
book talk and signing at
the Fort Pierce Branch
Library on Friday, April
13 at 1 p.m.
Ms. Dale's latest book,
"Would Do, Could Do,
and Made Do: Florida
Pioneer 'Cow Hunters'
Who Tamed The *Last
Frontier," is a collection
of stories from some of
Florida's cattle ranchers
about the Florida pioneer
culture. Ms. Dale says she
chooses to write about
the pioneers who pre-


served their family and
land "because our her-
itage is disappearing in
Florida."
Ms. Dale's goal for her
writing is to help expose
people to native Florida
and to preserve Florida's
heritage. The author's
previous book was
"Where the Swallowtail
Kite Soars: The Legacies
of Glades County, Florida
and the Vanishing
Wilderness." She is cur-
rently working on a third
book.
Ms. Dale is a nationally
published freelance
writer, newspaper corre-
spondent, an allied


inember of the Florida
Cattlemen's Association
and a college professor at
Edison and South Florida
Community Colleges.
This program is free to
the public and Ms. Dale
will have copies of her
books available for sign-
ing.
The Fort Pierce Branch
Library is located at 101
Melody Lane, Fort Pierce.
Reservations may be
required, as space is lim-
ited.
For more information,

lucie.lib.fl.us or call Vick-
ie Cooke at (772) 462-

PORT ST. LUCIE -
Learn what "Living
Green" means at the
Oxbow Eco-Center's sev-
enth annual- Earth Day
Celebration on Saturday,
April 21 from 10 a.m. to 3
p.m. The event is free and
packed with fun for the
whole family.
In the "Sustainability
Village," visitors will see a
man who rides his bike to
run some of his house-
hold appliances. Visitors
*can also make bubbles at
the solar energy booth
with a sun-driven fan.
Find out some non-
'toxic and simple alterna-
tives to harsh chemicals
you may currently use in
your house, and why buy-
ing organic can be good
for your health and for the
environment!
Exhibitors will be on-
site to discuss a range of
topics from energy-effi-
cient home designs, to
creating clean indoor air
quality, to attracting birds
and butterflies to your
yard while reducing water
and pesticide use.
This year's celebration
.is sure to delight kids of
all ages. Some of Florida's
reptiles, amphibians and
birds of prey will be visit-
ing to give you a closer
look at these fascinating
creatures. You can even
get your picture taken
with a giant tortoise!
Visitors can make a.
wildlife costume at


"Crafty Corners" or bring
one from home, along
with a musical instru-
ment, and join the "Salute
to Wildlife" Nature
Parade. The Fort Pierce
Magnet School of the Arts
drum corps will perform
and lead parade partici-
pants on a procession
through the woods. This
is your chance to express
the animal inside you.
Don't forget to test your
nature awareness by tak-
ing the Eco-Challenge.
You'll have to follow a
map to a variety of sta-
tions and answer the rid-
dles. If you can answer
them all, you'll win a
prize.
You can also sign up for
one of many guided hikes
through the Oxbow forest
to learn first hand about
birds, gopher tortoises
and native ecosystems.
For visitors who prefer a
more laid-back celebra-
tion, local reggae band
Injoy will perform.
And of course, there will
be a sale in the Oxbow's
unique gift store.
Visitors are encouraged
to carpool.
The Oxbow Eco-Center
is a St. Lucie County Envi-
ronmental Learning Cen-
ter situated on 225 acres
of land on the St. Lucie
River. It is located at 5400
N.E. St. James Drive, 1-1/2

assessment survey


set by United Way


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS'

A task force being led
by the United Way of St.
Lucie County is currently
conducting a Compre-
hensive Assessment of
the County's Social,
Health, and Public Safety
Services, which will be
used to help provide
services in these impor-
tant areas.
As a part of this assess-
ment, a countywide tele-
phone survey among res-
idents began March 29.
The survey is an opportu-
nity for county residents
to have their voice heard
regarding key services in
St. Lucie County.
The task force asks that
all residents who are con-
tacted agree to partici-


pate in the survey. The
survey requires less than
10 minutes to complete.
The Needs Assessment
project includes several
components. Besides the
telephone survey, a com-
pilation of existing data
from public records, on
population, social, health
and public safety service
records will be conduct-
ed. Other facets of the
assessment are focus
groups among service
providers, .leaders of
faith-based organizations
and business leaders, as
well as a service invento-
ry.
For more information
on the Performance Eval-
uation and Improvement,

PAL getting a new home


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
For the last three years,
the Fort Pierce Police Ath-
letic League has been
searching for a place to
call home.
Finally, it seems they will
have one.
On March 5 the PAL was
granted $50,000 for reno-
vations to the abandoned
building at 1401 North
Second Street in Fort
Pierce. The building,
which has approximately
four and-a-half acres of
space inside, will serve as
the main recreation facili-
ty for the PAL.


"I think it's a great
place," said Brenda Coop-
er who directs the PAL
drama program. "It needs
a lot of work, but we can
do so much in here."
In 2004, hurricanes
Jeanne and Francis dis-
placed the PAL from their
home on Orange Ave.
Plans for a new communi-
ty center that the PAL
would use exclusively
started after the storms.
The building will be locat-
ed off Orange Ave. and
10th Street in Fort Pierce.
Ground has still not
been broken on that proj-
ect.


After the storms, the PAL
used a storefront in the old
Coral Grove Shopping
Plaza on US 1, but in Octo-
ber 2006, that building
was demolished and the
PAL was homeless again.
Since that time PAL direc-
tor Paul Pearson has been
running his program out
of the old post office
building on Orange Ave.,
and has been trying to find
a building that the PAL can
operate out of 100 percent
until their new building is
built.

Redevelopment Jon Ward

Global warming is taking a serious toll on golf ball trees, too


If you've read the
newspaper lately, or
even turned on the,
television, you've heard
the term "global warm-
ing."
Apparently, it's every-
where. Now global
warming is even having
an effect on us golfers.
The crazy weather we
have been having this
winter.- abnormally
warm temperatures
followed by record cold
- has had an adverse
effect on this year's golf
ball crop.
Harvested on only one
day each year the first
day of the fourth month
- golf ball crops were
once the life and blood of
our game.
Imagine the negative

effect our weather may
be having on this year's
crop.
What if there are
simply not enough ripe
Titleists to go around?
How about those
golfers searching for
inexpensive balls?


A damaged crop of
those cheaper, two-piece
balls could send prices
skyrocketing, driving
golfers into the woods
and ponds to find their
own.
There was a time when
groves of golf ball trees
filled the land. Now, one
hardly ever sees a beauti-
ful grove of golf ball
trees, with their gleam-
ing-white ripe golf balls
weighting down the
limbs, just waiting for
that one day of harvest.
Giuseppe Pancrazio
was the first to plant a
golf ball and grow a tree
that produced perfect
spheres.
A few days ago, this
pioneer in our sport took
a few minutes from his

hectic late-March sched-
ule to speak with me.
It all began quite by
accident.
One day, Giuseppe
noticed a small tree
growing on the bank of a
pond behind his home,
just off the 14th fairway
of Itallunie Country Club
and Winery in northern
Italy.
What he thought was a
weed turned out to be a
small golf ball tree. Some
golfer had hit a bad shot
and his ball flew across
the pond and embedded
in the soft earth.
After sitting there for
many months it germi-
nated and a tree sprout-
ed.
The rest is history.
In 1953, Giuseppe
packed up his small
family and immigrated to
a small central New York
town to .start what
became the family
business. '
His groves grew as the
game of golf became
more popular. They
eventually covered the
hills as far as the eye
could see. Imagine the
beauty of thousands of
trees with little golf ball
buds adorning their
limbs, a soft blanket of
pure white snow melting
away underneath.
"I was tired of growing
pasta in the old country,"
he said. "There were far
too many types of trees.
We needed a spaghetti
tree, a ziti tree, another
for fettuccini and so on.
Golf ball trees used to be
easy. All I need was two


types of tree. One for
solid, another for the
wound."
The demure Italian,
with a heavy accent who
reminded me of my
grandfather, continued,
"But now, I must grow
nearly as many golf ball
trees as pasta trees. I
must grow two-piece,
three-piece, big cores,
little cores, different
covers. Ahhh! It's mad-
dening!"
In addition to needing
so many different golf
ball trees, Giuseppe faces
competition from foreign
markets that hire cheap
labor or use. machinery
to pluck the ripe orbs
from the trees or, worse
yet, grow them inside
under controlled condi-
tions. He prefers the old
fashioned way. Using his
trained eye and time-
honed sense of touch,
Giuseppe knows exactly.
which balls are ripe and
ready to be hit by a golf
club.
If the ball is too ripe, it
will feel mushy and lose
distance. Ifyou pick balls
that are not ripe, you risk
having a ball that feels
like a rock, or worse yet,
stays green and can
never be found, even on
the fairway.
With the weather
conditions becoming so
crazy and unpredictable,
Giuseppe has lost a good
portion of this year's
crop. Many of the more
complex balls are simply
not ripe and ready for the
store shelves. Others
have ripened too quickly


and lay rotting on the
ground.
Nearing his 90th
birthday, Guiseppe is
considering retiring. His
thoughts are to sell the
land to a mall developer
and return to Italy for his
final years.
"I'm a just too old for
this anymore," he sighed.
"No one appreciates my
craft anymore. Golfers
are too worried about
distance and no seams.
Oh well."
Today could very well
mark a dark day in our
sport's history.
On the first day of the
fourth month from this
day forward, we may no
longer celebrate the great
golf ball harvest.
There will be no
singing, dancing or
drinking.
Instead, we should
pause as we tee up that
pristine ball on the first
tee to begin our rourid.
We should take a
moment to remember
Giuseppe Pancrazio and.
mourn the loss our sport
has suffered.
There will be no more
groves of golf ball trees. A
hand-picked sphere of
perfection will no longer
adorn a golf tee.
We can blame it all on
global warming.

Pro soccer comes to the Treasure Coast


TC Galleons debut in May


By MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
Andre Routte has visions
of Lawnwood Stadium
packed on a summer night.
He sees fans draped in
Harry Potter-like scarves
with shirts that read "Trea-
sure Coast Galleons,"
jumping up and down
singing and cheering on
their own hometown pro-
fessional team.
But unlike most sports
enthusiasts in America,
Routte's vision isn't about
a summer's night baseball
game, he sees a soccer
match.
Routte grew up in a soc-
cer family. He ate it. He
breathed it. He was, by his
own admission, obsessed
with it.
Growing up in New Jer-
sey, the son of an English
father and German moth-
er, he was taught at an
early age about the passion
and the pride that goes
hand in hand with big-time
European club soccer.
In 2005, while living in
South Carolina, Routte was
a regular at Charleston Bat-
tery games, a first division
member of the United Soc-
cer League, similar to a
Triple A baseball team.
Along with three friends,
he started what is now the
E10 Underground, a sup-
port group for the Battery
simply named after the
section they sat in. The
group gained a reputation
for being the most spirited
supporters in the crowd
and soon attracted around
100 members. Routte even
became good friends with
the owners of the Battery,
learning the ins and outs of
running a professional soc-
cer franchise.
He moved to Port St.
Lucie to be closer to family,
but his experience with the
Battery gave him the inspi-
ration to try to create a
team of his own on the
Treasure Coast
On May 19, the Treasure
Coast Galleons will make
their debut against the
Orlando City Football Club
at Lawnwood Stadium in,
Fort Pierce.
"There was nothing
above youth soccer *heree.1
Certainty there is high
school but there's not
much college so there was
this huge void," said
Routte. "I wanted to bring
these kids a team to help
elevate the game of soccer
and the awareness in the
area."
The Galleons will play at
least two years in the Flori-
da Elite League before try-
ing to become a member of
the second division of the


USL. Routte had initially
wanted to go straight to the"'
USL, but decided to get
people acquainted with the
team first and understand
what he is trying to develop
here in St. Lucie County,
which is a first class profes-
sional franchise.
The Galleons have
already scheduled games
against USL clubs as well
as six international clubs,
including the Nigerian
National team. On top of
that, the Galleons will also
have six or seven home
games against other FESL
teams.
"You can really experi-
ence the grass roots aspect
with the Florida Elite Soc-
cer League and also the
pride and the passion of a
really big club team," said
Routte. "But our interna-
tional schedule will really
give our fans and specta-
tors a taste of what's to
come in the future, and
also the potential of soc-
cer."
The FESL consists of
teams from Melbourne,
Orlando, Okeechobee,
West Palm and Port St.
Lucie and hopes to elevate
the awareness of soccer in
an area rich with a great
youth soccer tradition
started by the Port St. Lucie
Hurricanes and continued
by the Mako Sharks.
But Routte knows soccer
will be a hard sell and is
ready for an uphill climb.
Before he decided on cre-
ating the Galleons, he first
did his research. He sent
out feelers to local high
school players to see if they
would come out and sup.-
port a semi-pro or profes-
sional team. The response
waS#surpiwsig .posi t'.;e.
so M1utte knew he had a
chance. The next step was
getting the right people in
the Galleons organization,
so that the team didn't sink
before it ever swam.
He hired Gerry Schiavo,
to be the head coach. Schi-
avo has been coaching the
Uruguay Soccer Club, an


amateur team based in
Fort Lauderdale, for the
last seven years and has a
reputation for overachiev-
ing with teams that aren't
as talented as his opposi-
tion.
Schiavo brought with
him Fernando Clavijo, a
member of the National
Soccer Hall of Fame and
current head coach of the
Colorado Rapids of major
League Soccer. Clavijo will
be the team's head of
scouting and develop-
ment. If that doesn't
already give Treasure Coast
enough credibility, former
MLS players and Treasure
Coast locals Pete Marino
and Ivan McKinley will join,
the team as players.
But make no mistake,
Routte wants the team to
be something that the
community can rally
behind. He is hopeful that
the majority of his players
will be from the area. In
fact, it is a FESL rule that
each team has at least two
players that, are in high
school or just graduated.
"Ultimately, we want
young adults and adults. It
would be great to see the
young high school kid who
wants to be a star playing
next to the mechanic who
still loves to play soccer,
but he's your hometown
mechanic down the street,"
said Routte. "We really
want to have that home-
town feel, so when you go
out there, you're really
standing up for your com-
munity. I really want to put
that Treasure Coast pride
out there."
Tickets will range from
$4-15 dollars, but there will
be tickets for $2 for what
Routtes is calling his sup-
porters' section. This area
will be for fans, which, like
;the'E 0 Vledergrouad.-plan
on cheering and singing
their team on to victory.
Routte doesn't stop with
a team either. He is also the
owner of the Total Soccer
Academy, which will kick
off this year in Port St.
Lucie. The academy is
looking to be an elite train-
ing facility for up-and-


coming soccer players
across the world. Thanks to
Port St. Lucie Hurricanes
president Mike Gazalla, the
TS Academy were able to
obtain practice fields at
Swan Park, so if a player
wants to play professional
soccer, the next step is not
far away.
"We want to make it pro-
fessional. We're going to be
pro. We want to be pro. We
think we're pro right now,"
said Routte. "Like it or not,
soccer is taking over Amer-
ica. We're not playing for
money. We're playing for
Treasure Coast pride. We
want to be your team."

Sports writer
Last summer Gary
Carter was leading the St.
Lucie Mets to a Florida
State League champi-
onship.
This summer, Carter
will be spending more of
his time on the golf
course than at Tradition
Field in Port St. Lucie.
The baseball Hall of
Famer left the St. Lucie
Mets with the hope of get-
ting a coaching job with
the big league club in
New York. After his good
friend and former team
mate Howard Johnson got
that job, Carter was
offered the head coaching
position with double A
Binghamton, but decided
to take a season off
instead.
On March 20, Carter
was on hand with the rest
of the 2006 FSL champi-,
ons to receive their cham-
pionship rings in an on-
field ceremony before the
Mets and Baltimore Ori-
oles spring training game
in Port St. Lucie.
"I'm certainly going to
miss them. It was nice to
be recognized tonight and
receive the ring. It's some-
thing I'm proud of
because it's something we


worked hard for," Carter
said. "When you accom-
plish something like that,
it's like when we won the
World Series in '86. You
feel a lot of gratification. I
think the kids felt that. A
lot of them said what a
special year it was for
them and they learned
how to win. That's what
we said from Day One,
'we're going to win this
thing,' and we carried it
through."
Carter retired from his
playing career in 1992,
hut has worked with the
ets organization in the
years since. He was the
head coach of the Gulf
Coast Mets in 2005,
before being named the
head coach of the St.
Lucie Mets in 2006.
He is hopeful that he
will be back in baseball in
2008.
"Hopefully something
will materialize in the
future. Obviously it's
probably not going to be
back in this organization,
but there are 29 other
organizations so I'm hop-
ing that I to get back in it,"
said Carter. "I miss it
already and spring train-
ing isn't even over. I'm
hoping something will
come together."

PAL
From, page C7


purchased the 5-acre site
in which the PAL's new
building will sit as part of
the port redevelopment
plan. The initial idea was
to demolish the building
to make wa# for new
buildings that would be
part of a revamped Fort
Pierce waterfront. But
upon inspecting the
vacant building, he deter-
mined that it would be a
waste .to knock it down
right away. That's when he
remembered Pearson and
the PAL needed a more
permanent place.
"Normally we knock
them down and I knew
there could be another use
for it," Ward said. "I think I
can let them use it for at
least two or three years. It
let's us sit back and find
money for the new build-
ing."
Until then the PAL will
be on N. 2nd Street, and
Person couldn't be more
excited about the possibil-
ities. Their new home will
house a boxing ring, the-
ater, small basketball
courts, and arts and crafts
and study areas. Pearson
even envisions bringing
back a "Teen Zone Night"
for teenagers to come out
and dance and have a
good time in a safe envi-
ronment.
"I want it to be a com-
munity center," said Pear-
son."
As exciting as the news
was on March 5, it was also
was a little disappointing.
The building has been
unoccupied for nearly two
years and needs consider-
able work inside and out.
Water and electricity are
the main concern followed
by cleaning up the inside.
The money received
from the city should be
able to take care of the
utilities, but Pearson has
received estimates up to
$250,000 for repairs.


Volunteers and mem-
bers of the PAL will have to
paint, clean, build walls
and fix up the rest of the
building. The funding for
that part of the fix-up will
most likely come from the
PAL's pockets. So now they
are hoping the community


will come out and support
them.
"We're trying to run pro-
grams for kids," said Pear-
son. "We're not contrac-
tors."

Fort Pierce Fire head
coach and offensive coordi-
nator Jerome Stone stood
on the sideline at Lawn-
wood Stadium on March 24.
baffled. After winning two
straight games in which he
watched his offense score 27
and 26 points respectively,
the Fire were blanked 35-0
by the Magic City Bulls on
their home field.
"Nothing tonight is what I
expected. I mean, wow,"
said Stone. "We just failed to
execute all the way around
tonight. We'll go back, rest
and retool and get ready for
the playoffs. No one played
anywhere close to the way
we thought they were going
to. No way you could have
told me it was going to be
35-0 tonight."
On Feb. 3 the Fire lost to
Magic City 14-8 in a game
that could have gone either
way. But this time around
the Bulls were able to find
the holes in Fort Pierces'
defense, and take advantage
of Fire mistakes.
Magic City used a potent
ground attack led by Sequan
Dowe (24 rushes for 132
yards) to set up long passes
that ended in the end zone.
Quarterback Ty-Wan Sevens
was 6 for 12 for 175 yards
and four touchdowns. Of his
six pass, completions five
were for 20 yards or more.
The attack on the Fire sec-
ondary was uncommon for
a team that prides itself on
being a hard-hitting stingy
defense. It was the first time
the Fire went scoreless this
season and only the second
time the they gave up 20
points or more, the other
coming in a 31-24 loss to
Orlando on Feb. 24.
"Tonight we played four
quarters of football. I had


the reads and I studied them
a lot and I just came out
tonight and played," said
Stevens. "They were in a
Cover Two and I knew the
middle of he field was going
to be open. I knew their
(defensive backs) were pret-
ty decent, but I believed in
my receivers and they just
got the job done."
The Fire (5-4), were
unable to get any momen-
tum going offensively, and
when they did have oppor-
tunities, turnovers proved to
be their worst enemy. Fort
Pierce lost two fumbles in
the first half and quarter-
back Tommy Share threw an
interception in the second.
Magic City scored off of
each turnover, adding' 21
points off Fire mistakes.
But turnovers were just
one on a list of problems for
Fort Pierce. Share, who has
been solid in his return from
a hurt knee in week one,
completed only 48 percent
of his passes and was con-
stantly chased out of the
pocket. He finished the
night going 10 for 21 for 117
yards and an interception.
The Fire's ground attack
was even worse, gaining just
22 yard on the ground.
Despite the loss, Fort
Pierce will still host a playoff
game on April 7 against the
East Coast Reapers. The two
teams met twice this season
with Fort Pierce winning
both contests by a com-
bined score of 67-44.
"We have their number
like Miami has our number.

A Day of Delight Spa
Experience the Award Winning Difference


A Day of Delight could easily translate into a little oasis of relaxation in
an ocean of stress and responsibilities of our everyday life.
As you enter the Day of Delight Spa, you are greeted by a sign that
reads: "How may we spoil you today?" Couple that with a glass of
champagne and your body and mind are about to be transported to heaven.
The spa offers a variety of services: speciality skin care, massages, body
scrubs, manicures, pedicures, hair and scalp treatments, waxing, make-
overs as well as Bridal Delights, treatments for little princesses, gentleman's
getaway or couples massages are all available at A Day of Delight Spa.
"One of our most popular treatments is Moor Mud Massage" said
owner Petra Lee Thomas. "It revitalizes a tired and lethargic body and
relieves stress and anxieties. We use special mud containing over 1000 plant
extracts!"
Fresh rose petals give this experience the finishing touch.
"Another delight is the Spa Signature Facial that spoils you by
concentrating on the whole you rather than just your face," Ms. Thomas adds.
A Day of Delight also offers planning services to make your life easier.
They feature everything from a caterer, live music and photographer to
limousine service.
"We consider a purchase of a gift certificate a huge compliment. You
are basically entrusting your loved ones in our care," said Ms. Thomas. "Our
gift certificate come wrapped in special bags with ribbons and flowers
complimentary!"
With two locations one in Stuart (located in a beautiful historical
estate from 1914 overlooking the St. Lucie River) and one in St. Lucie West,
Ms. Thomas, is a certified skin specialist herself and is always busy learning
new techniques and methods to implement in her expanding business.
Born in Germany, raised in Connecticut, her European origins show in
the way she runs her spa. She has a deep respect and genuine interest in her
guests ("not clients" as she points out) and she offers unique treatments
personalized to each individual's needs.
"Our guests come here to sit back, relax and unwind," said Ms. Thomas.
She started her business in 1997 when liins were difficult for a single
woman with a vision of opening a spa something considered a luxury rather
then a necessity. She worked hard, sacrificed her social life and put long hours
in turning her idea into a wonderful place of relaxation and comfort.
"I believe that Mother Nature can ,iipply v rytliing we need we grow
our own organic herbs, plants and rlowver in our garden to use in our
treatments," she said "We don't use any harsh chemicals!"
And what is the philosophy of her success?
"I turn the ordinary into somelthiniig el' ianriiaina and offer my guests
a one-of-a-kind experience," she added.
Her passion for what she does shows in Ms. Thomas' every word. She
is currently opening A Day of Delight li.r, and Treasures! This exotic

gourmet tea house will be offering woihluide delectables which is.
conveniently located next door to A Day of Delight Spa.
So, allow A Day of Delight the opportunity to treat you for an hour or
two or half-a-day. You will feel you have given your body, mind and spirit a
month-long vacation.

Maintain Good Health and Improve Your


Quality of Life Through a Healthy Lifestyle


By: Walter H. Janke, M.D.
Chairman and CEO
America's Health Choice
Medical Plans, Inc.


Every year, chronic diseases claim the lives of millions of Americans. Evidence shows that improving personal health habits often can prevent
many of the leading causes of death in the United States, such as heart disease, cancer, stroke, lung disease, and household injuries. Eating right,
staying physically active, not smoking and taking the medicines your physician has prescribed are a few examples of good habits that can help
you stay healthy and substantially reduce the illnesses, disabilities, and unnecessary or early deaths caused by these diseases.

To a large extent, the major chronic diseases, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes are an extension of what people do, or do not do. Those
who practice health-damaging behaviors risk decreased quality of life and early death. Three risk factors, tobacco use, lack of physical activity,
and poor nutrition are the major contributors to cardiovascular disease and cancer, our nation's leading killers. Also, it is important to follow your
doctors orders when drug therapy has been prescribed to control a chronic disease, there is clinical data that suggests death rates from heart
disease would be lower if more people took their medications as prescribed by their physician.

In addition, today we have the tools in hand to detect certain chronic diseases in their early stage, which is when treatment is most effective.
Regular screening can detect cancers of the breast, cervix, colon, prostate, and rectum and is also critical in preventing the debilitating compli-
cations of diabetes. Screening and appropriate follow-up for high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol can be life-saving measures for indi-
viduals at risk for cardiovascular disease. Access to high quality and affordable prevention measures for all Americans essential if we are to
save lives and reduce medical care costs.


Preventive strategies will encourage you to stay healthy and help you to improve the quality
of your life. Your doctor can help you determine which preventive services are
most appropriate for you based on your age and medical history.
Seeing your doctor for preventive services is 0 0
as important to your health ,e S "

D2 Port St. Lucie











Outlook
From page D1 ......AI, .m ,,.


at nearly 83 percent from
1990 through 2005.
As the job market
grows, unemployment
decreases. St. Lucie
County has seen a
marked decrease in its
unemployment rate dur-
ing the last decade.
Gwenda Thompson,
president of the Work-
force Development Board
of the Treasure Coast,
said unemployment for
January was at 4.6 per-
cent in St. Lucie County,
which is a little higher
than December's rate,
but still lower than the
national average of 5 per-
cent.
"We don't see a consis-
tent layoff with any
industry,',' Mrs. Thomp-
son said. "There just
seems to be a few more
people looking for work
than before."
Although residential
construction has slowed,
Mrs. Thompson said she
has not seen an increase
in construction workers
looking for jobs.
Mr. Pelton said com-
mercial construction is
still taking place at a
brisk pace.
"Retail activity is doing
well, and we've seen a lot
of interest in retail busi-
nesses coming here," Mr.
Pelton said. "We will con-
tinue to see wholesale
and retail continue to
grow because the market
continues to grow."
Mrs. Thompson said
the unemployment rate
tends to fluctuate
depending on communi-
ty circumstances, such as
a hurricane or rapid
growth. The. unemploy-
ment rate was lower in
January, 2006 than this
past January because
there was still recovery
work from Hurricane


Wilma in October, 2005.
Linda Cox, executive
director of the St. Lucie
County Chamber of
Commerce, said she has
heard from members that
business has been flat
lately. She said member-
ship numbers were down
for February, but seems
to be on track for March.
She believes businesses
are slowing down while
the state legislature
decides what to do about
property taxes.
"I think everybody is
sitting tight and waiting
for things to rebound,"
Mrs. Cox said. "In the last
few months, people have
really started to chat
about a slowdown."
Despite the talk of a
slowdown in the business
community, Mrs. Cox
said she believes the
biotechnology industry
will be a boost to the
county.
"It will bring a new ele-
ment," she said.
"Biotechnology is a posi-
tive step."
Mrs. Thompson says
unemployment will con-
tinue to go down as the
area grows its biomedical
research and education
industry.
"Whenever you gener-
ate new jobs, especially
high-paying jobs, the
unemployment rate
tends to drop," Mrs.
Thompson said. "If you
have a real economic
downturn, you will see a
big change in unemploy-
ment."
In fact, St. Lucie County
has seen its economy
grow in the last decade.
The unemployment rate
in 1997 was at 11 percent,
more than double-what it
is today.
"I've been doing work-'
force development for 30


years in the area and I
remember times in the
1970s and 1980s where
unemployment was at 20
percent, so we are getting
better," Mrs. Thompson
said. "I think there are a
number of things that
contributed. We've had a
booming economy
through the 2000s. Locally,
we've seen diversification
of industries, where for
many years we were pre-
dominately construction
or agriculture. Now we see
a lot more variety of jobs."
Mr. Pelton said the
opening of Torrey Pines
Institute for Molecular
Studies will bring spinoff
companies, with higher
pay.
"Tradition, with Torrey
Pines, is setting the pace
for what is happening,"
Mr. Pelton said. "We are
seeing a lot of expansion
from local companies, as
well."
Tradition is a planned
community in western
Port St. Lucie. When com-
plete, it will be home to
numerous retail business-
es, including a mall, as
well as businesses in the
biotechnology, research
and education fields.
Local officials are hoping
a scientific community
will develop around Tor-
rey Pines, as it did in
North Carolina's
Research Triangle area
and La Jolla, Calif.
"We are on the map
now because of Torrey
Pines, and with the part-
nership with Florida
Atlantic University and
Harbor Branch Oceano-
graphic Institution," Mr.
Pelton said. "I think there
is a lot of attention now
on the county by scien-
tists. There are a lot of
positive things ahead for
us."

S, 1. ne single mother overcame
the trials of single
parenthood to become one
of the most successful store owners
for one of the largest home furniture
retailers in the country.
Debby Stross celebrated the grand
reopening of her business, Badcock
Home Furniture and More in Fort
Pierce, last month. She said owes her
success to her family's support and
her outlook on life.
"I think Socrates said it best, 'Man is
the measure of all things,'" she said.
"I took hold of that."
After her divorce at 22, Ms. Stross
said she realized, "If I was going to
. get something in life, I was going to
have to go get it myself."
And so she did.
Making an hourly wage as a billing
clerk for the Badcock Corporation,
Ms. Stross asked them to give her an
opportunity to make more money in
management. Badcock agreed and
quickly recognized her talent in
retail sales.
Badcock sent her to a store in Rock
Hill, S.C. She quickly turned the
store around, setting up bonus
programs and breaking store


records in less than year.
She was soon sent to other
stores throughout the
Southeast, where she
improved their sales and
set more records.
"Retail can be a difficult
business," she said. "Either
retail is for you, or it's not. I
love it."
After more than 16 years
with the corporation,. Ms.
Stross became a store owner and
purchased the Badcock Furniture
and More in Fort Pierce in June 2004.
She said when she bought the store
it needed a fresh face and attitude.
So, she announced a new slogan:
"New hours, new owners, new
smiling faces."
Her slogan and customer service
philosophy proved effective as sales
tripled and Badcock Home
Furniture and More in Fort Pierce,
has become the highest-selling
volume store in the main Badcock
chain.
However, she has no intentions of
slowing down now.
While the Fort Pierce store sells

The single mom admits she has
always set high goals for herself,
including an early retirement to
Alaska.
But, she could not have reached her
goals without her family, she said.
Her father, Chuck Rhodig, who has
worked for the W.S. Badcock
Corporation since 1971, does repair
work for his daughter's store in Fort
Pierce.
"I get my customer service
philosophies from my dad," she
said. "There is nothing he wouldn't
do for a customer. I believe that

"My mom is tough, and my son
keeps me grounded."
Ms. Stross said she thinks of her
employees as family, too.
"Part of my inspiration to continue
to grow as a business is to provide a
stable work experience for my
employees," Ms. Stross said. "I love
each and every employee out there
and I treat each one like family."
She said Badcock has asked her to
open other stores, but she insists on
not spreading herself too thin.
"It comes down to cultivating your
people," she said. "I want to put
evervthine I have into this one."

With the rate of skin cancer soaring, the Board-Certified physicians with Treasure
Coast Dermatology believe that protecting the health of your skin has never been
more important. Prevention is our best weapon against this disease, but if a
melanoma should develop, it is almost always curable if caught in the early stages. In
addition to regular examinations by a Board-Certified dermatologist, frequent self-
exams are strongly recommended. Here are a few tips:
* Examine front and back of body in mirror, then right and left sides, with arms
raised.
Bend elbows, look carefully at forearms, back of upper arms and palms.
Examine the backs of the feet and legs, spaces between toes and soles of feet.
Using a hand-held mirror, examine back of neck and scalp.
Check back and buttocks with hand-held mirror.
Always remember your A-B-C-Ds:
Asymmetry one half unlike the other half
Border Irregular scalloped or poorly circumscribed border O
'Color varied from one area to another; shades of tan and brown;
sometimes white, red or blue.

Thorn is Great with children! He gets them to feel safe
and comfortable, as they progress through the different levels
of swimming. Thom enjoys teaching all children, but kids 18
months to 4 years old are especially rewarding.
Children need to know how to swim for their safety and
fun. Parents need to know that their children can fall into a
pool and safely swim to the side. Besides, how much more
fun is it to play with your kids in the pool!
Thom prides himself with teaching children with special
needs. Seeing them enjoy the pool and their parents' smiles,
is a wonderful reward.
Thorn really enjoys the water and children. When he puts
these two joys together the results are, remarkable!

Stone Tech, a Well-Deserved Success

Hard Work, Integrity & Honesty


When Giovanni Briguglio came to
the states from Italy in 1993, he had
a wife, three children and $3,000 in
his pocket. Mr. Briguglio said the
money disappeared after about three
weeks.
To make ends meet, the future
owner of Stone Tech international
worked two jobs from 7:30 a.m. to
5:30 p.m. until one particularly
heart-wrenching night.
Mr. Briguglio was on his way to the
store to pick up a pint of milk for his
11-month-old daughter, when he
realized he didn't have enough
money. He was short 27 cents.
"I looked every where and couldn't
find 27 cents," he said. "I felt
ashamed to go to the store, so that
night we gave her tea."
Mr. Briguglio said that he cried all
night by her crib and swore that it
would never happen again.
"It never happened again," he said.
From that point forward, he began
importing containers (each one con-
tains about 80 slabs or between 3,600
and 3,700 square feet of marble) that
went directly to the buyer. He acted
as agent and did not stock the prod-
uct.
He expanded his business nationally
by researching potential clients on
the Internet, doing additional check-
ing with the Better Business Bureau
in each company's state and compil-
ing a database containing names of
about 1,000 organizations.
"I started sending e-mails and letters
explaining who I was and what I
was doing," he said. "I started
receiving responses and then started
traveling the nation."
Travel he did. Mr. Briguglio said his
Ford station wagon averaged
100,000 miles a year as he literally
went from coast to coast he's got
clients in states such as California,
Texas, the tri-state area and Arizona


- selling his product.
"It wasn't aM easy thing to do, but,
somehow, with God's help, I man-
aged to do it," he said.
Today, Mr. Briguglio owns and oper-
ates Stone Tech International with
his wife, Josephine. With a total staff
of more than 20 people, they import
marble and granite from different
countries, mainly from Italy, but also
from Brazil, Spain, India, China and
South Africa and
distribute to the
trade.
No stranger to the
business, Mr..
Briguglio's family .
has owned marble
and granite facto-
ries in Sicily since
1917.
"It's a family busi-
ness that has been
going on for about
100 years," he
said.
Mr. and Mrs.
Briguglio have
quite a history
themselves.
They started dat-
ing in 1971 when
he was 15 and she ,
was 14. Mrs. Briguglio would visit
her grandparents every year in
,Sicily, where she and Giovanni
would run into each other. Giovanni
estimates that they sent "something
like 9,000 letters" back and forth
before being married in Italy in 1976.
They lived in New York from 1976 to
1980, and Giovanni got a degree in
accounting from Queens College
during that time.
They returned to Italy in 1980 and
had three children, Domenic, 26,
Anna, 23 and Eliana, age 14.
Son Dominic manages the 20,000-
square-foot Naples location, which


has been open since 2004, Anna
works at the Boyton Beach location
and is a graduate of Northwood
University, and Eliana attends
Jupiter Academy.
After tiring from so much nation-
wide travel, Giovanni wanted to
spend more time with his family.
He said he retained his good
accounts people he didn't have to
chase for payment and today con-
tinues to export
containers directly
from the factory in
Italy to the final
buyer.
In lieu of travel-
ing, he opened a
Sa9,000-square- foot
warehouse in
Riviera Beach
which will be relo-
cating to Boynton
Beach on May 1.
The facility there
is 40,000-square
feet and features a
large warehouse,
showroom and a
greeting place for
customers with
various acces-
sories, Mrs.
Briguglio said.
"We are different from other compa-
nies in that we only buy first-quality
material, we specialize in our service
and at this new location, people
actually are able to pick out their
slabs so they know what they are
getting," she said. "They don't just
pick from a sample."
Stone Tech is also now part of the
International Design Center in
Estero, Fla. The company became
part of the center when it opened in
summer 2006, Mrs. Briguglio said,
and they are featured in the stone
gallery section of the center.


Mr. Briguglio said that they have a
regular customer base of 250, but
they also get walk-ins every day.
Stone Tech focuses heavily on quali-
ty and customer service, he said.
"We really go out of our way to
please the customer. We back up 100
percent what we sell. We do busi-
ness the right way,"
He said they provide assistance in
helping the customer pick the right
stone for the right project, and the
most popular stones are gold, yellow
and green granite.
They also have a large selection of
exotics, stones with blues, purples
and reds and a good selection of
onyx, translucent, red, dark green,
honey and white.
Mrs. Briguglio stresses the value of a
family-owned business.
"We work together as a team, as a
family; husband, wife and then our
kids," Mrs. Briguglio said. "We pret-
ty much focused on achieving the
same thing. We were always work-
ing closely together."
For anyone hoping to go into busi-
ness for themselves, Mr. Briguglio
said that he or she must remember
it's not an easy ride.
"It takes hard work and more hard
work," he said. "You need to have a
dream and have a plan and work the
plan and don't give up. "Other major
factors in success are integrity and
honesty, as well as perseverance.
"Things will happen if you put the
right effort into it," he said.
"Nothing happens overnight, it's a
process."

when she. moved to Port St. Lticie. She

About Dr. Furman...

his doctorate from the Kansas City

known as Kansas City University of

into private practice and joining the
staff of Mercy Suburban Hospital. He is

About their
Associates...
Dr. Delo and Dr.
Furman are primarily
assisted by Ruth
Wermont, PA, Derek
Rachelli, PA. and Ginger
Kopenski, A.R.N.P Lisa
Moore, A.R.N.P., will
also be joining the
practice in May. Dr.
Delo's additional
support staff has almost
twenty people, several
of whom have been
with Dr. Delo for over
ten years. "I am proud
to have personnel who Linda D
care about what they do Board C
and like what they do in Osteopathic Fa
this practice," said Dr.
Delo. Delo Medical Associates is also
currently seeking another Spanish
speaking physician to fill the needs in the
community.

What is a D.O.?
A Doctor of Osteopathy, or D.O. and
a M.D., Doctor of Medicine, are alike in
that they both utilize all scientifically
accepted methods of diagnosis and
treatment, including the use of
medications and surgery. D.O.'s however,
have ant additional dimension to their
training and practice, one not taught in
medical schools giving M.D. .degrees.
The D.O. recognizes that the
musculoskeletal system (the muscles,
bones and joints) make up over 60
percent of body mass. He or she also.
recognizes that all body systems,


including the muscu-'
loskeletal system, are
interdependent arnd
disturbance in one
may cause altered
function in other
systems of the body.
This interrelationship
of body systems is
affected through the'
nervous and
circulatory systems.
The emphasis on the
relationship between
body structure and
organic functioning
gives a broader base
for the treatment of the
patient as a whole.
elo, D.0. These concepts require
lo, D.O. a thorough under-
tertified standing of anatomy
milyPhysician and development of
special skills in recognizing (diagnosing)
and correcting (treating) structural
problems through manipulative therapy
(adjustments). D.O.'s use structural
diagnosis and manipulative therapy
along with all of the other more
traditional forms of diagnosis and
treatment to care effectively for patients
and to relieve their distress.

In other words, Dr Delo and Dr.
Furman are interested in more than
giving shots or prescriptions -for a
suspected illness. They are trained to
diagnosis and treat the source of the
problem as well. Osteopathic Medicine
places more emphasis on consideration
of the whole person in providing medical
treatment, thereby stressing prevention'
and treatment of causes of illness instead
of treating symptoms alone. These are
just a few examples of the many


conditions, services and procedures
addressed and available: hearing tests,
glaucoma screening, allergy tests,
breathing tests, x-rays, echocardiograms,
ultrasounds, pulmonary function tests,
bone density tests, knee/back problems,
foot scans, orthotics, all types of skin
care, massage therapy, dietary
counseling, botox treatments,
vaccinations, injections, hypertension,
impotence, diabetes, "arthritis, complete
.annual physical, school and
employment physical, and even Class II
and III aviation physical.

Accordingly, Dr. Delo began
expanding her practice to provide those
services. She doubled her medical facility
to 2400 square feet and added numerous
services, but the demand kept growing.
Undaunted, she increased her facility
again and again in order to expand
services. Finally, by last October, Dr.
Delo's office had grown to an expansive
5600 square feet; "I wanted to be
different. I want to provide as much on-
site care as possible," she added.

This extensive list is only an
example of the abundance of onsite
services Delo Medical Associates offers.
If you require any type of medical
attention or are looking for a caring
relationship with your'family physician,
you have found it with Delo Medical
Associates.

Delo Medical Associates hours are
Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m.
through 5 p.m. by appointment, and
Saturday for walk-in emergencies from
9:00 a.m. through 12:00 p.m. Call them

Couple builds top agency on their love of cruises


A trip to the Caribbean altered by hurricane devasta-
tion led a Port St. Lucie couple to a new career and a
prolific business.
Ron & Sandy Russo, owners of Best Price Cruises, decid-
ed to fly to St. Marteen for a vacation. It was the height
of the 1995 hurricane season, and because Hurricane
Luis had caused severe damage to St. Marteen, they
decided instead to fly to San Juan as an alternative.
"We had a vacation with nowhere to go, so I found a last
minute cruise and we got on it" Ron Russo said. "My
wife simply didn't want to go, but I was able to convince
her. She had a perceived dislike of cruises, but that
cruise won her over. It was the best vacation we had
ever had!
Ron, a State of Florida tax auditor and self-proclaimed
computer geek, decided that the Internet was the wave
of the future and selling cruises online was in its infan-
cy. On Memorial Day, 1996, Ron & Sandra Russo, decid-
ed to let Ron start selling cruises online from their back
bedroom and began submitting specials to AOL's Cruise
Critic.
Still based in their back bedroom, his part-time
"hobby" remained.just that a hobby, until October


1997, when they decided to have Ron invest his full-
time efforts to expand the business. They moved into
retail offices in January, 1998, and hired their first
employee. The business grew so quickly that their 700
sq. ft. location on PSL Blvd. had only enough space to
serve them for two years. The hext location, 2400 sq. ft.
on PSL Blvd., lasted 4 years. Sandy joined full-time in
2002 and revenue continued doubling every year. In
2004, Best Price Cruises moved to its current 8000 sq. ft.
location on US1. Today the Russo's employ 25 full-time
employees and are one of the 25 largest 'cruise-only
agencies in the world!
What makes a Best Price cruise? "Size does matter in
cruise sales. The bigger the agency the better pricing
and discounts you receive from the cruise line. The per-
ception that all agencies are equal is simply incorrect"
says Ron. "We can offer the best price on over 90% of
the 10,000+ cruises we offer! No one can guarantee the
lowest price 100% of the time, but we come close" Ron
says.
"If you're not checking our website or calling us for a
competitive price, then you are likely not getting the
Best Price" on a fantastic vacation" he said.
