Commissioners researching Lawnwood proposal


BY MATT DONEGAN
Staff writer


County commissioners
want questions answered
before they allow a referen-
dum asking county resi-
dents whether or not they
will fund a new trauma cen-
ter at Lawnwood Regional
Medical Center & Heart
Institute in Fort Pierce.
The board voted April 3 to
postpone its decision on
sending the referendum to
voters, delaying the choice
until Tuesday, April 24.
Lawnwood is proposing a
June 12 referendum to ask
residents for $7 million
annually for the next 10
years. If the referendum is
put on the ballot and
approved, county residents
would be taxed 25 cents for
each $1,000 of taxable prop-


Officer's

success is

with the

dogs

K-9 trainer
honored as
officer of year,
Hometown Hero
BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE Offi-
cer Michael Colton has
always loved dogs.
Ever since he was a child
growing up on the Trea-
,sure Coast, Officer Colton
has had a dog by his side.
It was his love of dogs that
led him to be the head K-9
trainer for the Port St.
Lucie Police Department.
And it was his work with
canines that led Officer
Colton to be named Offi-
cer of the Year by the
department, and Home-
town Hero by Riverside
National Bank.
"He's been a god-send,"
said Port St. Lucie Police
Chief John Skinner. "Mike
not only loves dogs, but is
also such a professional
officer. He's been a great
find for our department."
Officer Colton has been
handling K-9 for 11 years,
and training new four-
legged officers for eight
years.
S"I've always bonded
with dogs'," Officer Colton
said. "In 1990, I got
involved with dogs with

erty value. That means resi-
dents with a house assessed
at $250,000 would pay $56 a
year. Broken down, that's
$4.69 a month or 15 cents a
day.
The money would be
used to pay trauma sur-
geons and other medical
specialists to man the trau-
ma center. Their salaries
total an estimated $4.2 mil-
lion annually. The remain-
ing revenue generated
would go toward additional
hospital costs associated
with the trauma center
start-up, which could be as
high as $3 million a year,
according to Lawnwood
spokeswoman Beth
Williams.
The timing of the referen-
dum is critical because
Lawnwood's state-appoint-
ed designation as a regional
trauma center will lapse on


Oct. 1 if the service does not
begin as stipulated in Lawn-
wood's application, she
said.
If the application lapses,
Mrs. Williams said the hos-
pital would have to start the
costly application process
all over again. Putting
together the original appli-
cation cost Lawnwood
between $60,000 and
$70,000, she said.
But there is another con-
cern.
"If another hospital chose
to apply, then they could,"
she said. "If there are multi-
ple applications, the state
would have to decide which
one to choose. It could cre-
ate a three- to four-year
process."
County Commissioner
Charles Grande, District 4,
said Lawnwood's claim that
it would not be able to get a

second extension on the
application raised doubt.
"How do you justify a sin-
gle-purpose election being
held in June in this area?" he
asked. "You do it by saying
it's time dependent. If it
really is, we need to consid-
er that. If it's not, we need to
know that. We need to check
with Sen. (Ken) Pruitt's
office to see if his staff could
get an extension approved.

The Keep Port St. Lucie

The Great America

There is one major
change from the 2006

the St. Lucie County Sher-
iff's Office. At that
moment, I wanted to be a
K-9 handler."
Officer Colton has been
in law enforcement nearly
20 years after graduating
from the academy at Indi-
an River Community Col-
lege. He started with the


sheriff's office before mov-
ing to Port St. Lucie Police
in 2005.
He enjoys training new
dogs and is working with
his third dog, Pino, a Dutch
shepherd. His previous
dog, Vasco, was killed in
2004, when a suspect Offi-
cer Colton and his dog
were chasing shot at the
two. It is something he pre-
pares all of his K-9s for
which.
"We learn from it and


how a scenario can go bad
pretty quick, so we take
that and put it in our train-
ing," Officer Colton said.
"It still hurts, but we take a
proactive approach to
reduce the chances of it
happening. The more we
are prepared, the better
chance the officer and dog
survives."
Office Colton is currently
working with three new
dogs the Port St. "Lucie
Police Department recent-
ly acquired, bringing the
department's total K-9s to
six. The dogs are undergo-
ing their 10-week training
with Officer Colton and
their new handlers.
"He's a great guy and
very knowledgeable," said
Officer Mitch Miller, a new
K-9 officer. "He is definitely
someone I am looking for-
ward to picking his brain
and learning."

A: Endodontics is the field of dentistry that specializes in care of the dental pulp,
the soft material inside the tooth.You may be referred to an endodontist if you
need, for instance; a root canal procedure, which is the treatment of the pulp.
Endodontics is one of the nine dental specialty areas recognized by the American
Dental Association. the others are : dental public health, including the study of
trends, establishment of public health programs and dissemination of
information; endodontics which deals with the nerve of the tooth; orthodontics which involves
straightening teeth, pedodontics, which specializes in the treatment of children; Periodontics which
is concerned with the teeth's supporting structures, namely the gums and jaw; and the fields of oral
and maxillofacial pathology, radiology, and surgery.
All dentists have the same basic training. Specialists go on for post -graduate training. Ask your
dentist for more information about dental specialty areas, and especially if you might benefit from'
the attention of a specialist.

and drugs once they are
finished with their train-
ing.
Officer Colton said he
simply is passing along all
he has been taught about
dog training and believes a
successful police dog is
trained with positive rein-
forcement.
"I have learned from
some of the best and I've-
taken a little from each
trainer and I try to com-
bine with my own beliefs,"
Officer Colton said. "I love

challenge to get inside the
dog's head and figure out
what you can do to manip-
ulate the dog with positive
reinforcement."
The police department
has taken notice of the
work Officer Colton has
done. He was honored in
January as the depart-
ment's officer of the year,
selected by a committee of
officers and civilians and
approved by the chief.
"Officer Colton is well-
respected," Chief Skinner
said. "He is not only a great
officer, but also low key. He
loves dogs and law
enforcement, and we're
happy to have him with
us."
As part of a commitment
to the city's police depart-
ment, Riverside National
Bank honors the officer of
the year as a Hometown
Hero.
"The officer of the year
goes above and beyond,"
said Linda Bartz, vice pres-
ident and branch manager


of Riverside National Bank.
"We've always been sup-
portive of the local police
department. It is also away'
to give back and show offi-
cers how much we appre-
ciate them and their hard
work."
Mrs. Bartz, who is also a
Port St. Lucie council-
woman, said the honored,
officer receives a certificate
of appreciation and a
watch.
"Riverside Bank feels this,
is one of the biggest hon-
ors we give out," Mrs. Bartz
said.
Officer Colton is sur-
prised by the attention he
has received for doing
what he loves, training
dogs.
"It's very nice, and my
wife and family are really
proud," Officer Colton
said. "It was very unex-
pected. After 20 years in
law enforcement, this is
the first time I've received
such accolades. It's pretty
nice."

The Shell Bazaar has a long history in Port
St. Lucie, and has been a favored tourist
attraction. Top photo: Christine Williams,
whose parents opened the Shell Bazaar in
1953, sits with family members in the large
concrete conch shell in front of the store.
Middle photo: Ms. Williams' father and a
helper unload shells sold in the store.
Bottom photo: Ms. Williams stands on the
roof of the store, with a desolate U.S. 1

lined with shopping centers.


Bazaar
From page Al
the city of Port St. Lucie' was
formed.
"It was just us and a few other
businesses," Ms. Williams said.
"There was little traffic, so at the
time, we did mostly wholesale. We
also. manufactured lamps made of
shells."
Ms. Williams grew up in the
apartment above the store, wrap-
ping the cords of the lamps after
school. For entertainment, Ms.
Williams. would sit atop a 10-foot
conch shell and wave at the occa-
sional car on a two-lane U.S. 1.
Tourists passing through to larger
cities to the south, such as Miami or
Fort Lauderdale, would find the
Shell Bazaar, thanks to the enor-
mous conch that still sits outside
today. The shell is in many family
vacation pictures, Ms. Williams
said, and has even appeared in a
book about unusual postcards.
Ms. Williams left the family busi-
ness for financial and real estate
careers, and returned in 1986 when
her mother wanted to retire.
Business was good, with more
locals discovering the Shell Bazaar,
which offers more than just shells
and Florida souvenirs.
Then came the hurricanes.
Frances and Jeanne hit in Sep-
tember 2004, bringing minor dam-
age and boosting sales.
"We got a lot of customers
because we had air conditioning,"
Ms. Williams said. "We even had T-
shirts made for the power workers.
But when Wilma came from the
other way, it ripped half of the roof
off and split the building in two."
The building split where her par-
ents constructed an addition to the
store in the mid-1950s. Water
poured in from the split.
"We brought everything back
past the leak because we knew
where the leaks were going to be,"
Ms. Williams said.
Then came the reconstruction
battles. An architect was hired .and
plans were done and re-done.
"We had to find a contractor, but
that was near impossible," Ms.
Williams said.
Demolition of the damaged


building finally happened this past
November, with construction
beginning in December. The store
was finally ready for business in
February.
"Business has been steadily
increasing," Ms. Williams said.
"Now I'm relieved and happy. We all
fought depression over the bills. It's
nice to see all the friendly faces of
people who have been coming in
for years and years."
Now that the store is back up and
running, Ms. Williams said she
would like to turn over the day-to-
day operations back over to her
business partner, Andy Staker, and
general manager Charlie Holmes.
"Hopefully things will begin to
settle down and I can do more with
the Port St. Lucie Historical Soci-
ety," Ms. Williams said.
She is president of the group, and
is currently working to recruit more
members, as well as compile oral
histories of residents who have
lived in the city since its inception.
During the middle of spring
break, the Shell Bazaar saw plenty
of tourists searching for souviners
of their Florida vacation.
Joann Moynihan of Ohio was in
the shop, looking at shells with her
daughter and her daughter's friend.
The family has been coming to Port
St. Lucie for years, and was happy
to see the Shell Bazaar back open
for business.
"We had to make sure we came
here and we'll be back before we
leave," Mrs. Moynihan said.
Her daughter, Sammi, 13, loves
the shop and couldn't wait to bring
her friend, Cierra Zeigler, also 13, to
search for shells.
"This place is awesome," Sammi
said.
For the woman who spent her life
in the shell shop, Ms. Williams is
glad to have a piece of her history
back.
"It's a big relief to have it all
done," Ms. Williams said. "Life can
get back to normal now."
The Shell Bazaar is located at
10100 South U.S. 1, and is open 10
a.m. to 7p.m. Monday through Sat-
urday, and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday

REVIEW

Local couple wins Easter House
A Port St. Lucie couple has a new home for only
$20.
Daniel and Betty Yohman, 23-year residents of
Port St. Lucie, purchased two tickets for the YMCA
Easter House and one of them was the winning tick-
et.
The drawing for the house was held April 5.
More than 75,000 tickets, at $10 apiece, were sold
for the house.
Proceeds from ticket sales will go toward pro-
grams at the YMCA of the Treasure Coast.
This year's Easter House will be a certified green
house, with all aspects of the construction involving
environmentally-sound practices. The builder,
Homecrete Homes of Port St. Lucie, is a certified
green builder by the Florida Green Building Coali-
tion.
The house was not the only prize for ticket-hold-
ers. Jim Eanes of Jensen Beach won $20,000, Walter
Ferrell of Port St. Lucie won $7,500 and Ann Lind-
strom of Hobe Sound won $2,500.

City's growth is 14th in nation

Lucie grew by nearly 23 percent between April 2000
through July 2006, making it the 14th fastest grow-
ing area in the nation.
Port St. Lucie was ranked first several years ago for
growth and was ninth last year.
Cities on the west coast of Florida saw a bigger

Review of animal control needed

Recent scandals regarding animal control officers, and
their staff and supervisors indicate that a complete review
of this agency is needed right away.
The appointment of a qualified administrative type vet-
erinarian would be a start.
Rewrite the regulations, update the qualifications of the
animal control officers to a national norm.
The director should have the authority to replace or
reassign staff as needed.
Let's do it now.

Toothless law


A law disguised for animal protection was passed on
April 3 in St. Lucie County.
It is a disguised law!
Ranch owners in St. Lucie County can avoid the long
arm of the law because they have exempted themselves
from this toothless, so-called, differential animal licens-
ing law.
The future of animal protection in St. Lucie County is
unlikely as long as St. Lucie County commissioners easily
bend to the ranch landowners, who are motivated only by
the bottom-line.
The commissioners, by passing this phony law, allow
ranch owners to exploit animals. They continue to cause
grief to taxpayers and animals in St. Lucie County.

Third hospital, yea or nay

The controversy about a third hospital in the western
part of the county has demonstrated poor planning on
the part of county administrators,, and how an oppor-
tunistic organization hopes to cash in.
In keeping with the journalistic trend of prefacing Mar-
tin Memorial as a "not-for- profit hospital," I would like to
clarify that statement.
Hospital Corporation of America bwns Lawnwood
Regional Medical Center and St. Lucie Medical Center
and Heart Institute. They were, for the longest time, con-
sidered a "for- profit" hospital chain.
The main reason for the designation was that there were'
stockholders in the corporation that bought shares
expecting to see their investment grow.
Martin Memorial, on the other hand, has no stockhold-
ers and, therefore, the erroneous assumption is that there
is no pressure to make a profit and if a profit is made it
is distributed back to. employees or the community in
which it serves.
During my working career, I have worked for CVS,
Goodyear Tire and Rubber, Mobil Oil, Tenet Healthcare
System, Baptist Healthcare Systems of South Florida, and
Martin Memorial.
I have no ax to grind with any of my previous employers,
but there is one thing in common to every one of them.
When budget time came around every year, these meet-
ings were very intense and demanding.
Martin Memorial was no exception. Budget meetings,
always came down to how to save money and increase.
productivity.
Managers were expected to meet budgets in the upcom-
ing year, or face the consequences.
Just in .passing, Hospital Corporation of America, as of
mid-November, no longer has stockholders to-answer to.
Now let's look at the hospital issue in Tradition.
Martin Memorial and Tradition want it built. HCA and
the State of Florida are against it.
Martin Memorial has used various arguments for it.
Let's examine the more popular ones:
*Increase the job market by 400 positions
*A testing resource for Torrey Pines
*Lack of accessibility to existing hospitals from the
western part of the county.
Yes, an 80-bed hospital would create approximately 400
new jobs. However, with the shortage of healthcare work-
ers nationwide, how are these positions going to be filled?
Recent browsing of Martin Memorial's web -site had
nearly 100 openings for nursing positions at their current
two hospitals; and nearly 40 openings in critical allied
health position, i.e., pharmacy, laboratory, radiological,
and services.
Lawnwood had nearly 40 nursing and 20 allied health


positions open.
I didn't explore the food service, housekeeping jobs, but I
would assume there are openings there also.
How much biomedical testing is really going to be done
at this new hospital? With a patient census probably in the
40 to 50 range, how many of those patients are going to be
candidates for these tests?
More than likely, if Martin Memorial teams up with Tor-
rey Pines, all testing will be done on the main campus in
Stuart, whether they have a hospital next door or not.
Staffing during these experiments is just as critical as the
patients undergoing these tests.
I agree, traffic can be,a hassle on the current east-west
corridors in Saint Lucie County. Complicating matters is
the river, which won't disappear. This is where previous
administrations failed the county miserably.
That being said, let's really examine the accessibility
issue. If Martin Memorial were to build a hospital in Tradi-
tion, where would the really seriously ill patients end up?
- in Stuart at the North Campus. God forbid that a car-
diac patient needs to be transported to Martin for an
open-heart procedure and a slow moving freight train is
passing through Stuart.
As a former resident of Broward County, I saw this same
problem develop and resolved years ago.
I am not against a third hospital in the western part of the
county. In fact in light of the history of county administra-
tion's lack of vision, I would encourage a third hospital be
built.
If HCA would follow the model that Tenet used in
Broward County, the facility would be built with the State
-of Florida's blessing.
Currently the state issues a. Certificate of Need to build
hospitals. Since St. Lucie County only fills 60 percent of
the licensed beds, the state feels there is adequate space
available for the current and foreseeable increases in the
population.
Tenet handled this same argument by relinquishing beds
at their hospitals on the eastern side of the county, and the
state allowed a hospital to be built in Weston.
IF HCA would relinquish some beds from Lawnwood and
St. Lucie Medical Center, the ,60 percent census would
increase because of the lower number of available beds,
and therefore, the certificate of need would be justified.
HCA would then be in a better position to build and staff
a facility in the western part of the county.
Some of the staffing would be transfers from the two cur-
rent hospitals, since staffing could be reduced with small-
er hospitals.
In reality, the hospital in Tradition has nothing to do with
these arguments.
It is all about the money. Martin Memorial is looking for
a huge payday. Wealthy, well-insured clients are desired,
and Tradition, is the target.
If Martin Memorial was truly concerned about providing
health care to the Treasure Coast, why did they close the
out-patient facility in Indiantown, and why haven't they
opened a facility to the north of Orange Ave., between 25m
Avenue and U.S 1.
Martin has a facility across the street from St. Lucie Med-
ical Center, so a facility in Fort Pierce near Lawnwood,
.would seem like a natural.
Martin Memorial felt an open-heart program was neces-
sary, not because the services weren't available, but
because open-heart is a lucrative segment in healthcare.
Open-heart procedures are still reimbursed at high levels.
Trauma, on the other hand, is very costly and is a
resource draining service,
Add to that the fact that wealthy patrons will donate huge
sums for the privilege of having their names attached to a


wing or equipment for a chic service, it is no wonder that
Martin Memorialpushed for this service.
They manipulated the system by sending cardiac patients
to Palm Beach County, because of the bitterness towards
Lawnwobd.
As luck would have it, State Rep. Gayle Harrell's husband
needed cardiac surgery and Martin shipped him to Palm
Beach County. She then pursued a personal agenda to get
Martin the open-heart program.
If Dr. Harrell had not had the cardiac problem, or had
been sent to Lawnwood, Martin would still be consumed
with the effort to gain an open-heart program.

Response from Martin Memorial

Martin Memorial was created in 1939, by dedicated
community members who saw a need for healthcare serv-
ices.
That partnership with the community exists today, as
Martin Memorial works with local citizens to provide
access to the very best health care possible.
As a mission-driven organization, it is constantly search-
ing for new ways to provide care for the community.
It has served residents of Port St. Lucie since the 1980s,
when it opened sites there that now include physician
offices, radiation-oncology services, rehabilitation care,
laboratory facilities and diagnostic imaging.
But, the growth in the area, particularly western Port St.
Lucie has been overwhelming, and the need for a new
hospital is evident.
, Access to emergency services is particularly vital in the
area, as emergency departments continue to be over-
crowded.
Many of the patients who visit Martin Memorial emer-
gency departments are from Port St. Lucie, choosing to go
there in part because of extensive waits in other local hos-
pitals.
There is also a significant need for obstetrical services in
western Port St. Lucie. Last year a record 2,209 babies were
born at Martin Memorial, the third year in a row the hospi-
tal set a new record for births.
The Port St. Lucie, Fort Pierce and Okeechobee County
region accounted for 97 percent of the new growth in serv-
ices last year..
That's why more than 10,000 local residents signed peti-
tions of support last fall for a hospital in the Traditionr
development, one of the fastest-growing areas in the
region.
That is why Martin Memorial continues its efforts to
build a hospital there, to serve residents whose healthcare
needs are not being met.
Martin Memorial is a not-for-profit hospital, which
means the money it does make, is put back into capital
expenditures such as new equipment, facility expansion,
and salaries and benefits for its associates.
As a not-for-profit hospital governed by local residents.
it is in essence, owned by the community.
That differs sharply from for-profit hospitals, owned by
private investors.
Should Martin Memorial be granted the right to open a
hospital in west Port St. Lucie, some have questioned out
ability to staff it.
While it is true that finding healthcare workers, includ-
ing physicians, nurses, and clinical staff, has been a chal-4
lenge for hospitals across the country, Martin Memorial
has a strong track record of recruiting and retaining out-
standing associates.
The nurse vacancy rate is approximately 7 percent, wel4

From page A6
below the state average of 18 percent. The hospital has
developed strategies to recruit nurses
and clinical personnel, and has been able to provide
patients access to an array of physicians that cover the
spectrum from general practitioners to specialists.
That includes cardiologists and heart surgeons at the
new Frances Langford Heart Center, which opened in
August 2006.
The heart center has saved lives from the day it opened
its doors, and the need for this vital service is evident from
the number of people who have been provided care there.
By late March 2007, 169 open-heart, surgeries, and
almost 500 interventional procedures had been per-
formed at the heart center.
Prior to that, patients suffering from heart attacks, or
other severe cardiovascular conditions, had to be sent to
hospitals far from home.
Those patients were referred to other heart centers, not
by Martin Memorial, but by cardiologists who determined
where patients would go based on their relationships with
other physicians, and their confidence in the quality of
care at those facilities.
It is important to note that Martin Memorial has been
serving Port St. Lucie for two decades. Well before the pop-
ulation boom appeared, it saw a need for health care in the
area and has worked diligently to fill that need.
That has been the mission since the doors were opened
68 years ago. It is the mission today, and it will be the mis-
sion in the future.

Stop dirtying the canals

canals.
By throwing your trash, you foul the canals, and by dis-
carding your garbage, you invite the rats, the bugs, and
other animals.
They will not stay by the canals exclusively. They will visit
your homes.
Good luck.

Good Samaritan

This rave is in response to the recent news story of a
homeless man who rescued two passengers from their
plane after it crashed in a Delray Beach field.
Perhaps he might be blessed to receive a place to live for
being a Good Samaritan? Wouldn't that be sweet?
The Bible says, "Do not forget to entertain strangers, for
by doing so, some people have entertained angels without
knowing it" (Hebrews 11:2).
Thank you.

I need help, too

This is in response to the in the lady who wrote in about
her grandson needing medical attention about his Atten-
tion Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and how they are


Americans.
Well so am I, and 1 also need help. I am 51, and married.
My husband works, but has no medical coverage at work,
and I am pre-existing with my medical problems.
My medical problem is why I no longer work. I worked
13 years in one place, trying to live the American Dream.
I cannot afford my medication, for it is over $1,000 a
month. So I do with out it.
I also am an American. I get no from my own people. I
was told that I can't get help paying for my medicine
because I do have Medicare.
Go figure that out, because I can't.
I am on Social Security disability, and cannot get help for
my medicine but I am still trying.
Great, huh?

Tired of complainers

This rant has been building up for some time.
I'm getting a little tired of the folks who want to complain
about everything. Specifically those of every nationality
and religious beliefs who want to change the lives of others
and their beliefs.
These comments are not aimed at any one particular
group of people, but if the shoe fits, wear it.
American people are the most tolerant people in the
world. We have opened our doors and hearts to all. We are
tolerant of everyone's customs and religions and beliefs
and don't dictate how you live. We welcome you and the
things that you bring to our wonderful country.
But there are groups who want to rewrite the rules and
push some of their misguided beliefs on us.
I have visited and lived for extended periods, of time in
many different countries around the world and never
once tried to impose my beliefs on the people of the coun-
try where I was a guest.
We choose to live in harmony with our guests and future
citizens. Please be tolerant of your host country as well.

Sunnis vs. the Shiites?

The people who seem to think that it's the Sunnis fight-
ing the Shiites in Iraq are absolutely putting their heads in
the sand.
In my opinion, it's the terrorists who are instigating the
Sunnis against the Shiites and they are coming from Iran
and Syria who are doing all of the instigating.
The leaders of Iran and Syria want Iraq for themselves.
They don't want a democracy in Iraq because the people in
the countries might overthrow them to become a democ-
racy.
Come on, Democrats, wake up. Get your heads out of the
sand and unite beside the people who see the way it is.
Remember Sept. 11. Unite for all the men and women
who are protecting us and the world against the terrible
terrorists.
The terrorists owe no allegiance to anyone. They are evil.
Kill them over there or they will be here killing us.

Service should match postage increase


again.
Too bad they don't increase their service. There are times
I get (mail) for people who live more than a few blocks
away.
I thought the sorters were to make sure the right person
gets the right mail. After all, that's what they get paid for.
I think it's time the right thing is done when it comes to
our mail.
o Speak up people. For if we don't, nothing will change.

Road rules seem to vary

I am fed up with hearing about the bad habits of Floridi-
ans on the road.
No matter where you are from you probably think the
only correct way to drive is the way they do it back home.
Consider there are 49 other states and (who) knows how
many other countries that have drivers on the'roads of
Florida, each absolutely sure that the only way to drive is
their way.
Is it any wonder that you see so many stupid things on
the roads?


Stop whining, embrace airport security

I have a rant, a huge rant, in response to "Treatment at
airports unfair."
I am a flight attendant with seven years under my wings,
and I think that rant was the most asinine I have ever read.
A few key points:
In the Orlando airport, there are numerous signs lead-
ing up to the security checkpoint stating that lighters are
not allowed on the airplane or through security (In case,
you don't know, "prohibited" means "not allowed").
If your daughter's lighter had so much sentimental value
she should have paid attention to the instructions provid-
ed and removed her lighter from her carry-on bag.
Losing it was the price she had to pay for not doing as
instructed.
*Your bag was dumped out and searched by strangers.
So what?
That is called security. Would you rather no one's bags are
searched, or are you special?
If it bothers you' that your change was in -the bottom of
your purse, then get a coin purse and use it.
+ Your friends from other areas won't visit you here in
Florida because they don't want to be searched at airports?
Why are they afraid to be searched?
They refuse to be treated that way as U.S. citizens, you
say.
Well, the reason U.S. citizens have to be treated that way
is because people want to hurt us. They have tried and
succeeded in the past and will probably try again.
Since I fly about four days a week, every week, I am glad
security is so stringent.
Your friends sent their son to Iraq for freedom and it
did no good?
Your friends didn't send him to Iraq, the military did. I
have the utmost respect and admiration for those., in the

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-

Church hands out


drinks for drivers


BY ROBIN RINKE
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE If you
every find yourself sitting
in your car at the intersec-
tion of Port St. Lucie
Boulevard and Westmore-
land in Port St. Lucie, and
someone hands you a
Coke, don't be surprised -
it's free.
Once a month the Vine-
yard Church of Port St.
Lucie West gives away 256
cans of Coke to drivers.
Rick LaBouef, lead pas-
tor of the church, said his
group has been doing the
Coke give-away for about
six months now.
"It is a great way of
demonstrating to people
that just like the Cokes are
free, so is God's love," Pas-
tor LaBouef said.
"When we hand people
the Cokes we get a lot of
big smiles. I guess the ad
'have a coke and a smile' is
true."
He said this is their prac-
tical way of showing God's
love to others with no
strings attached.
"It is surprising at how
many people want to give
us money," he said. "Peo-
ple just assume it will cost
them something. Or that
we are soliciting for
funds."
He said they don't have a
formula for handing out
the drinks. Sometimes
they are able to chat with
drivers, but most of the
time they hand a small
card to the driver that
explains how much God
loves them and that you
don't have to pay for his
love.
"God doesn't require
anything from us. His love
is free, and like the Coke,
all you have to do is accept
it," he said.


Some drivers have joked
that they would like a beer
instead. He thought that
was pretty funny. He said
he just says that they are a
church and adhere to the
rule, "Thou shall not drink
and drive."
Pastor LaBouef became
lead pastor of the five year-
old church almost two
years ago.
He was originally from
upstate New York and has
lived in Port St. Lucie for
five years.
"When I became lead
pastor I basically re-start-
ed the church," Pastor
LaBouef said. "We took a
fresh new name and a new
direction."
He said what he did not
change was the outreach
programs that were in
place because doing out-
reach has always been a
strong part of the congre-
gation.
The Coke outreach cost
the church $66. He said
that is a small price to
share a great message with
others.
Like clockwork, on April
7, at 10:30 a.m., volunteers
from the church were at it
again.
Pastor LaBouef said all
ages participate in the
Coke giveaway.
"Members sign up and
head to the street once a
month," he said. "The
youngest volunteer is an 8-
year-old (who doesn't go in
the street) and the oldest is
76."
Another outreach the
church provides is the
Alpha series.
Pastor LaBouef said any-
body is welcome to join
the series.
"People attend for a wide
variety of reasons. Some

of the cold weather. This
year, we hope to have at
least 500 people."
The 2005 cleanup had
500 residents participate,
.and they collected 13 tons
of trash. Residents who
come out will focus on
streets in the city where
the Public Works Depart-
ment have determined
need the most help.
"We focus the event on
the results of a litter
index, which identifies
the amount of litter in the
city," Mr. Capezutto said.
"This year we will focus
on west ,of (Florida's)
Turnpike. It seems to be
the place of the growth
and construction boom,
and it's where we see the
most litter."
While the western area
of the city needs the most
cleaning, Community
Transit buses will trans-
port volunteers to all
areas of Port St. Lucie, Mr.
Capezutto said. Each par-
ticipant will receive a
bright colored T-shirt to
make them stand out to
traffic, a pair of gloves to
protect hands and plenty
of garbage bags.
Residents pitching in to
clean up the streets will
be treated to breakfast
and lunch, courtesy of
Wal-Mart and Waste Pro,
as well as a free raffle,
with prizes donated by
Wal-Mart.
"Each person gets a raf-

prize just for kids, which
will be either a Playsta-

Mr. Capezutto said.
"Oasis Nursery is donat-

Members of the St.

For all of the city's

in the program out to
participate, said Officer

director.
"It is a local' and impor-

really something we
should support."
The PAL is a crime pre-

organization.
Officer Wilson and PAL
children will be cleaning

In addition to providing

ing the event.
"Our board voted to be

cer Wilson said. "We think
it is a great event. It is
important for us and is
important for the city."
PAL is also working on
adopting a Port St. Lucie
street to keep it clean
throughout the year, Offi-'
cer Wilson said.
"We're continuing our
support," he said. "It is
important for the chil-
dren to get the idea
instilled in them that they

ty and there are things
they can do for the com-
munity."
The Port St. Lucie

Do You Suffer Shoulder Pain?
Specializing in Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair
Casual athletes, as well as professional athletes, can develop painful
shoulders. Many injuries, to the rotator cuff can be caused by repeated
stress to the shoulder-such as playing golf or tennis-rather than by a
single major trauma. Today, many shoulder problems can be repaired
with arthroscopic surgery so you can go home the same day and recover
quickly. Contact my office for more information about this minimally
invasive alternative for rotator cuff repair.

Officials expected to put


water restrictions in effect


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

South Florida Water Man-
agement District officials
asked their governing board
April 12 to consider a mod-
erate, water shortage decla-
ration for the Upper East
Coast Service area, which
comprises residential areas
of Martin and St. Lucie
counties.
The board's decision came
too late to make this publi-
cation, but its members
were expected to vote in
favor of the proposed order,
which would make the
restrictions effective today,
April 13.
Under the restrictions,
residents are required to
observe a three-day-per-
week irrigation schedule,
while permitted water users,
such as golf courses and
large commercial users, are
required to achieve a 15 per-
cent reduction in their over-
all water consumption.
"The new cutbacks are
more restrictive than any-
thing our agency has ever
proposed, but our water
resources are at risk," said
Carol Ann Wehle, executive
director of the district. "We
urge all residents to volun-
tarily observe the stricter
guidelines immediately in


an effort to stretch our water
supply. We have entered
what may be the worst
drought in recordable South
Florida history, and all water
needs to be conserved no
matter the source."
,, This year's dry season cur-
rently ranks as the third dri-
est hydrologic season on
record. in Florida.
Water managers are pre-
dicting that unless signifi-
cant rain events return to
South Florida, drought con-
ditions are likely to intensify
quickly, especially in -areas
surrounding Lake Okee-
chobee and Palm Beach,
Broward, Miami-Dade and
Monroe counties.
"The water shortage situa-
tion has grown considerably
more grave," said Ms. Wehle.
The drought and subse-
quent water shortage are the
result of persistent low rain-
fall dating back to 2006,
which ranked as the sixth-
driest year on record in,
terms of district-wide rain-
fall. The trend has continued
through the first three
months of 2007. Only 2.61
inches of rain fell in the
three-month period ending
March 30. This, is 37 percent
of the historical average for
that period.
During the month of
March, only .60 inch of rain


fell district-wide; this is 21
percent of the historical
average for the month.
With the low rainfall
totals, the water level in
Lake Okeechobee, a bell-
wether measurement of the
district's water supply, has
dropped four feet below its
historical average for this
time of year. The district will
not be able to use Lake
Okeechobee as a back-up
water supply source for resi-
dents in the Lower East
Coast.
In addition, lake levels
throughout the Kissimmee
Chain of Lakes are well
below normal, creating pos-
sible problems for boaters
and potentially impacting
the regional ecology, in
addition to reducing the
regional water supply.
While voluntary conser-
vation also is encouraged
for users of alternative water
supply sources, the use of
100 percent reclaimed water
is not subject to
restrictions. The use of
water for health, fire, safety
and other essential purpos-
es also is not restricted.

area residents can call the
district's toll-free Water
Shortage Hotline at 1-800-
662-8876.


(Syndicated News) According to the
United States Business Administration, in
2005 there were almost 25 million business-
es in this country. Roughly 99.9 percent of
them were considered small firms, with
, fewer than 500 employees. There is no
doubt about the vast array of businesses
that fill each city and town. And there's no
shortage of people looking to start new
businesses each year.
Coming up with the idea for a business is
usually the easy part. Finding out how to
raise capital to get it
going is a whole other
story. And it seems to
be the point that most
people get stuck on.
The' U.S. Small
Busin ess..
Administration '
reports that inade-
quate financing is the
second most common
reason that businesses
fail, exceeded only by
poor management. So
the main thing an
entrepreneur needs to
know is where to go to Y
find the capital to
fund that next great .' .
idea. But that has
always been the tricky
part of the business
world. Until now.
"In the past, figuring
out how to raise capi-
tal was the biggest
challenge of getting a
business up and run-
ning, and for many
people it seemed like an impossible feat,"
explains Richard Singer, CEO of
RaiseCapital.com. "Today, people turn to us
because we help bridge the gap between


,the entrepreneur and the investor."
RaiseCapital.com is changing the way that
financing a business has always been done.
Those seeking funds, whether for new or
existing businesses, simply place an ad in
the RaiseCapital.com directory using text
descriptions, photos and streaming video,
then sit back and wait for the replies to roll
in. Meanwhile, investors sift through the
possibilities, deciding where they'd like to
see their money grow. When they find a
venture that interests them, they simply
make the contact,
right through the
RaiseCapital.com sys-
tem. Their technology
also allows investors
to track all the con-
tacts they have made,
search for opportuni-
ties by zip code, get
industry e-mail alerts
and create a watch list.
Investors are not
charged anything at
all to see the opportu-
nities or make any
contacts.
"RaiseCapital.com is
a win-win situation
for everyone

hen I ended my
D story last time,
Sour Moroccan
tour group was headed to
the desert for the night.
First, we spent the day
exploring the surrounding
Berber villages with our
guide, Ali, who was
dressed in a traditional
blue caftan and turban.
We visited a historic
kasbah and then ventured
into a local market, which
sold everything from
tomatoes to camels.
Afterward, we piled into
a fleet of Jeeps and
headed for the bright
orange sand dunes of
Merzouga and our Berber
camp for the night
Once we arrived, we
were assigned small tents,
mostly made of thick
blankets, rugs and mat-
tresses. Lunch was ready
and like all meals in
Morocco, it did not
disappoint.
We ate outside in the
sun, mesmerized by the
dunes before us. Sudden-
ly, a person appeared in
the distance. He knelt and
prayed to Mecca.
It was a touching sight
that I'll never forget.
After lunch we began
our camel trek. I've
reluctantly ridden many a
grouchy camel in my day,
but this camel was quite
sweet.
To say our trek was

but when we started to
struggle, they unwound
their turbans and used
them as ropes to pull us
up.
Finally, we reached the
top as the sun began to
set. After watching the
gorgeous sunset, it was
time to climb down. Some
people walked, while
others sat and gleefully
slid down the dunes as if
sledding.
Soon it was time for
dinner, drumming and
some Moroccan dancing.
It was a lot of fun,
topped off by my being
serenaded, under the
desert stars, by our guide,
Ali. It was just another
one of those magical

From Ouarzazate we
next explored the walled
city of Taroudent then we
drove to the Imperial City
of Marrakesh.
With the Atlas Moun-
tains as a backdrop and
palm trees all around,
Marrakesh looks like a
picture postcard.
We toured the Elbadi
Palace, various tombs and
gardens, but mostly we
shopped. The colorful
souk (market) is leg-
endary and after explor-
ing it together, we were
left to our own devices.
People bought everything
from large doors to rugs,
from fancy slippers to
perfumes. I bought a big
hanging lantern that I had
no idea how to get home,
but I did.
The next day we took a
relaxing carriage ride to a
local art museum, but
soon were ready for our
daily fix of the souk. In the
evening we attended a
splashy dinner in tents,
with dancers and horse-
back riders as entertain-
ment.
It was a bit over the top,
but a fun way to end our
stay in Marrakesh.
With our tour winding
down, we headed to
Morocco's coast. As we
drove through the coun-
tryside, we stopped to
marvel at all the goats in .
trees. They climb up to eat
argon nuts, touted as the
best nuts for making
cooking oil and skin
lotions.

Lawnwood patients feel


the power of song


A morning with
the music
therapist
By MATT DONEGAN
Sttiffwriter

Suffering a debilitating
stroke and the death of her
brother within a two-week
span, March was the worst
month of Mary Thomas'
life.
Through the storm
clouds jabbed an unlikely
ray of sunshine from The
Beatles, Peter, Paul and
Mary, and Jennifer Jarred.
An acoustic guitar
strapped to her back, the
latter musician carts
instruments and binders
jammed with lyrics around
the Lawnwood Regional
Medical Center & Heart
Institute campus during
her full morning April 3,
just as she has done since
January.
Even though the shoul-
der-length brown-haired
late 20-something per-
forms patient-requested
favorites, Ms. Jarred is not
an entertainer.
Her gig is actually music
therapy, an established, yet
little-known healthcare
profession.
For Ms. Thomas, of Port
St. Lucie, this form of treat-
ment is "invaluable."
"It lifts the whole energy
level of the room," she
said.
With no predetermined
set list, Ms. Jarred and Ms.
Thomas agree their first
song of the 25-minute ses-
sion should be from the
Fab Four, with their 1963
smash "I Want To Hold
Your Hand."


The irony was not lost on
Ms. Thomas, whose left
hand was incapacitated as
a result of the stroke.
With each song, Ms.
Thomas silently urges her
impaired hand to con-
tribute to the music, trying
her best to make sound
with various instruments
she's able to squeeze and
shake ever so slightly. A
few weeks ago, that would
not have been possible.
Preparing for their rendi-
tion of "Coal Miner's
Daughter," Ms. Jarred
places her patient's hand
on the slide panel of a
QChord, a tabletop digital
guitar-like instrument.
Though Ms. Thomas, who
used to play guitar, could
only will her thumb to
move a quarter of an inch,
the sensitive QChord
sensed her movement.
"Even if you couldn't see
her thumb move, you
could hear it," Ms. Jarred
said. "This is positive rein-
forcement."
I But music therapy is
much more than that.
While Ms. Jarred
strummed her guitar and
sang "Puff the Magic Drag-
on" in her pleasant pitch
reminiscent of a music
teacher in Anywhere,
U.S.A., Ms. Thomas began
to cry. The song reminded
her of her late brother.
After .the final note, she
opened up, smiling while
she recalled a time when,
while he was teaching her
how to climb a tree, he
abandoned her to figure
out her own way down
from 40 feet into the
branches.
"People have really
strong associations with


music," said Ms. Jarred,
who holds a master's
.degree in music therapy
from Florida State Univer-
sity. "If you've ever been in
the car driving and a song
comes on and you get real-
ly excited or sad because it
reminds you of a break up,
your first dance with your
wife, the day your children
were born ... Music thera-
pists tap into those associ-
ations. You can end up
talking about the music.
You can get someone to
reminisce, remember bet-
ter times, talk about mem-
ories they have, what the
words mean to them."
Music therapy is benefi-
cial or therapeutic on
some level for most peo-
ple, she said.
* For Lewis Corey, who was
33 days into his hospital
stay after getting new veins
and arteries in his legs
when Ms. Jarred visited his
top-floor room April 3,
music therapy has been a
needed escape.
"Usually I don't like that
kind of stuff," said Mr.
Corey, a middle-aged, gruff
kind of man's man. "I'm
embarrassed when some-
body sits there and sings in
front of me. But after the
first time I did it, and start-
ed picking out songs ...
The songs I asked her to
play just bring back mem-
ories of the '70s when I was
in my early 20s, rip-roaring
and raising hell. For a half-
hour, it takes your mind off
stuff. I've got a daughter at
home trying to run the
business, and all the stuff
going on here. It never
stops. Up here is like a

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers. -

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".


I


EMPLOYMENT
If our culture
sounds like one
that fits with your
ideas on the way
business should
be conducted,
please call us.
561,844.3461
We need to add
to our team in all
departments...
sales, service,
parts, body shop,
and accounting.


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


Virtually every car dealer ofeduca
in Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a Sophistic
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500 much hig
to nearly $1,000. This extra
charge is programmed into
your computer. It has been made illegal in
many states including California, but is still
legal in Florida. The reason you charge this
fee is simply to increase the price of the car
and your profit in such a manner that 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.


s
it


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
tomers' able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
ons, level or used car. You can do the
same.


nation and
cation are
her today."


Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
I think of myself as the new
"sheriff' that has come to
"clean up South Florida". In
fact, I am well aware that this
letter is, to some extent, self-


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

squirrel cage," he said,
pointing to his head. "But
for the half-hour she's here,
it's like the world stops."
In March, Mr. Corey
spent 24 days in intensive
care. With a trach sticking


out of his neck and no abil-
ity to speak at the time, he
wrote down requests for
Ms. Jarred and mouthed
along with the songs. He's
now back to talking just
fine.
The miracle of music
Even those whose speech


has been impaired can
sing along.
"Music is stored in a dif-
ferent part of the brain
than language," explained
Ms. Jarred, who has been a
music therapist for four
years. "People who have
had a stroke, or people
with dementia, sometimes
have a, very difficult time


with speech. With demen-
tia, there's word salad,
where nothing they say
makes sense in a sentence.
People like that who talk,
and it doesn't come out
right, can sing familiar
songs that they know and
love because the language
part of the brain has been
damaged, but the music


part has not been dam-
aged."
Usually, stroke patients
who can't speak clearly can
hear and understand that
what they're trying to say
isn't coming out right, she
said. They get more and
more frustrated,
depressed, then may
decide not to try speaking

anymore because they feel
they can't.
But the Louisiana-native
shows them that they can
still sing.
"You can imagine what
they're thinking, 'I just said
a sentence, I made sense, I
spoke real words,'" Ms.
Jarred said. "It's amazing to
see that on their face. You
can imagine the hope that
it can give them. The fami-
ly members get to see
them singing all the songs
that maybe that person
sang to them when they
were kids. The words are
there. They're in the, brain
with the music. Through
long-term therapy, we can
bridge the gap between the
music part of the brain and
the language part and
teach someone to sing a
phrase to a familiar
melody."
Ms. Jarred even uses
music to calm agitated
patients, which, along with
depressed patients, are the
people most frequently
referred to her.
In the intensive care unit
earlier this year, she recalls
a man waking up from
sedation and becoming
frantic. It took four people
to hold him down.
'"They called me in there,
and I started playing
something loud and fast,"
she recalled. "Something
soothing is not going to
grab someone's .attention
when they're yelling and
pulling out tubes. You have
to match the intensity of
the music to the intensity
of the behaviors being
exhibited. Grab their
attention, figure out where
they are, then get them to
where you want them to
be."
More than just the visible
change in mood, music,
with beat, tempo and vol-
ume, can actually adjust
physiological responses,
Ms. Jarred said.
"You can see blood pres-
sure numbers change
directly with music," she
said.
Even babies benefit from
music therapy.
In the Neonatal Intensive
Care Unit, Ms. Jarred holds
7-day-old Marco Mayorga,
singing "Twinkle, Twinkle,
Little Star." While continu-
ing to sing familiar chil-
dren's songs, she adds a
massage, then rocking.
"Music therapists use
music and touch to help
the child tolerate different
kinds of sounds and stimu-
lation," she said. "The
NICU is usually a quiet
place. Then when the baby
gets into the real world and
things are happening, they
can't necessarily tolerate
it."
Neonatal Intensive Care
Unit babies who receive
multimodal stimulation
can go home up to 11 days
sooner than babies who
don't, she said.
With the afternoon
creeping in and three
patients satisfied, Ms.
Jarred slings her guitar
over her shoulder, extends
the handle on her mobile
music room and heads for
the elevator. There's more
optimism to radiate.
There's more to do today.

Teen heroes save man


from burning car


BY ROBIN RINKE
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE Two
teens were on their way to
do a little fishing, but
instead they turned into
local heros. -
On March 31, 18-year-old
Ricky Costello and 17-
year-old Stevie Ferguson,
both of Port St. Lucie, were
enjoying spring break
playing at the Jensen
Beach High School ball
field. When they had fin-
ished they were headed
home to eat and do some
fishing.
Enroute they saw what
they thought was lights of
"a car sticking out of the
wooded area off of the
road.
"It was a gut feeling," said
Ricky. "We were heading
Northeast on Airoso
Boulevard to go to Stevie's
'when we saw lights. So we
turned around to check it
out."
Ricky was glad they did.
When they got back to
the area a woman was
'screaming into her cell
phone and standing there
next to a car, which was on
fire.
"She was screaming,
'Help, help help,'" Ricky
S said. "She told us her
' boyfriend was in the front
seat slumped over from a
seizure."
The two boys had no
time to think and ran to
the driver's side of the Kia
Spectra and found the
door locked, but the win-
dow open and a man with
his seat belt on and
slumped over.
Ricky saw the flames
surge on the passenger
side of the car and the pair
knew they had no time to
waste.
"I was thinking, 'We got
,to get this guy out,'" Ricky
said.
The two boys worked
together and carried the
approximately 200-pound
man about 120 feet away
from the car to the side of
the road.
The frantic woman asked
Ricky to retrieve her hand-
bag from the car and he
went back to get it.
"The whole passenger
side was in flames and her
purse was on the floor,"
,said Ricky. "I went through

the driver's side and
grabbed it."
The incident happened
about 8:2:0 p.m. as Leonard
Major, 34 and his friend
Ms. Herrmann, 45 drove
north along Northeast
Airoso Boulevard. Mr.
Major had a seizure and
lost control of the vehicle,
which ran off the road at
Northeast Dominican Ter-
race and slammed into a
tree.
By the time the boys got
Mr. Major to safety and
retrieved Ms. Herrmann's
purse, the Port St. Lucie
Police Department was on
the scene. Sergeant
Richard Del Toro greeted
the boys and was amazed
at their bravery.
"They were quick," said
Sgt. Del Toro. "They literal-
ly saved that man's life."
The sergeant was also
pleased with the work of
the Port St. Lucie Fire
Department.
"I was nervous with the
car fire getting out of con-
trol because it has been so
dry," Sgt. DelToro said.
"The car was in a wooded
area and the whole scene
could have been really
bad."
Once the fire was under
control the Sergeant gave
the two boys' parents a call

to let them know what a
great job they did.
"Parents need to know
the good stuff their kids
do," he said. "When I
called Ricky's parents they
had just heard the story
from Ricky. They couldn't
believe it. I told then that
the boys were heros."
Ricky said it all happened
so quick that he had no
time to think and loved the
feeling he got by helping
someone in a crisis.
Up until that day, Ricky
said he never thought
about an emergency work-
er career. Now he said it
might be a possibility
"Helping in a crisis made
me feel so good," Ricky
said. "I wouldn't mind
doing that as a career. We
will see."
Ricky's parent's Francine
and Richard Costello, of
Port St. Lucie were proud
of their son and his friend
and could not believe their
bravery.
"When the Sergeant told
us on the phone that if it
would not have been for
the boys, that man would
have died, the reality hit
me," said Mrs. Costello. "I
told Ricky that God put
him where he was and he
made a good choice to
help those people."

Eventually, we
reached the ocean and
the charming, white-
washed village of
Essaouria. We stayed in
a colorful riad (think
bed and breakfast),
where we were treated
to dinner, music,
dancing and drum-
ming once again.
The group would
have one more day in
Casablanca, but I was
off to Egypt to lead a
tour there.
On our whirlwind
two-week trip through
Morocco, we covered
so much ground that
we took bets on the
number of miles
covered (about 1,300). I

PORT ST. LUCIE-

In a joint meeting on April

20th-Century
Jewelry
The jewels of Spanish
painter'.Salvador Dali
were more extravagant
and were more repre-
sentative of design for its
own sake than as a func-
tion of the jewel to be
worn. Although a great
"deal of modern jewelry is
designed and made by
large firms, the tradition
of the artist craftsman is
strong in Scandinavia
and the United States,
where silver;, semi-
precious stones, ham-
mered copper,. and
other less costly materials
are commonly used.
Plastics are often
employed in expensive
jewelry. Arts-and-crafts
shops produce vast
selections of abstract
and naturalistic designs
in rings bracelets, ear-
ings, necklaces, and
brooches. Although jew-
elry in the 19th and early
20th century was worn
primarily by women, in.
the late 20th Century
some men were wearing
jewelry such as
neckchains, bracelets,
and earrings.

the district rose from a C to a
B grade last year, and hopes
to reach his goal of being an
A district by the end of the
2008-2009 school year.
The letter grading system
is set up by the state based
on Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test, given to
students starting in third
grade.
"I don't expect an acceler-
ated jump to an A grade this


year," Mr. Lannon said. "We
had 3,000 new students we
had to work with this year.
But our goal still is to get an
A."
Another challenge the
district faces is over half of
the more than 38,000
students are living in
poverty. Mr. Lannon said
out of 6,000 hours year
children are awake; schools
only get them for a 1,000


hours of that year.
"We don't acknowledge it
every day and they all come
to school with a whole
bunch of needs," Mr.
Lannon said.

their best and improve their
financial situations after

Lawnwood
From page Al


sioner Grande said the
board needs to .carefully
consider is the concept of
tax money subsidizing a for-
profit corporation.
But Commissioner Joe
Smith, District 1, said he
doesn't think that argument
holds water.
"Look at privatization in
the federal government," he
said. "Look how much the
president has moved to pri-
vatize social services, ports
and other programs. The
issue here is if we believe
trauma services are impor-
tant. I don't think it matters
whether it's at a public or a
private hospital."
Commissioner Smith said
he supports putting the ref-
erendum out to voters.
"We don't get to pick and
choose what goes to voters,"
he said, noting that, in the
end, it will be up to the vot-
ers to make their decision.
The commissioner said
he's sympathetic to people
who say their taxes are
already too high, like those


who showed up at last
week's Commission meet-
ing.
"I'm in that boat, too," he
said.
But he said bringing a
trauma center to Fort Pierce
is a quality-of-life issue.
Currently, people in need
of trauma care in St. Lucie
County are flown to St.
Mary's Medical Center in
West Palm Beachror Holmes
Regional Medical Center in
Melbourne. While a trauma
center in Fort Pierce would
mean patients could receive
a high-level of care within
the first hour of injury, it
would also improve overall
care at the hospital since
trauma centers are required
to have trauma surgeons,
staff and other specialists at
the facility 24/7/365, Mrs.
Williams said.
Then again, Martin
Memorial Health Systems
has come out against the
proposed trauma center,
basing its stance. on an
American Medical Associa-


tion study which indicates
trauma centers that treat
less than 650 patients a year
have a mortality rate more
than double that of a trauma
center with a higher patient,
volume.
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.
Lawnwood has agreed to'
a 10-year sunset on the ref-
erendum, meaning voters'
would fund the trauma
center for 10 years and
have the option to renew
the tax after that period.
"We believe they're
going to want to renew it,"..
Mrs. Williams said. "We're
going to provide a first-
class trauma center. We're
going to save lives in our
area."

a different perspective on who has more faith.
I agree that it can be substantiated that the "Earth
revolves around the sun" and would not argue against his
fact.
The same scientists and scholars who can prove this
claim say that the universe was created by a series of ran-
dom events that even the most prestigious of mathmeti-
cians would say are so unlikely to have occurred by chance
that the human mind can not even fathom the odds of this
occurrence.
These same scholars claim to know how the universe
was created but cannot find a cure for the common cold?
They also will convince you that they understand life and
the universe, but, as yet, I have not seen them create one
life form from scratch.
If they know how, then show us by creating.
Things happen in this world every day that are unex-
plainable.
Look out of your window and tell me that this is all ran-
dom chance, and I will show you someone with unsub-
stantiated "faith."
I have been a patient there for a year, and from the
beginning, I have found their facilities to be not only excel-
lent in cleanliness and orderliness, but also that their staff
is professional, friendly and caring.

Go ahead, tap my phone
The Democrats are so naive; they are against the Patriot
Act.
I personally wouldn't care if the FBI or the CIA listened in
on any of my phone calls. What are the Democrats afraid
of?
We need to give the FBI and the CIA any tools they need
to protect us.
Don't the Democrats have anything to do besides trying
to get rid of (Attorney General Alberto) Gonzales for firing
the attorneys who probably weren't doing their jobs.
My thought is if President Bush fires him, the Republi-
cans would lose some of the Hispanic vote.
That's what the Democrats are up to. They want the His-
panic vote.

Keep up the Rants & Raves
I just want to say that the Rants & Raves are probably
the best feature of the newspaper. I think it needs more
than two pages. Maybe four.
It's just amazing to read some of these letters and I love

developed centers of
excellence at all of the high
s hools. The programs are
different at each school, and
prepare students to enter
the workforce following
graduation.
"'In today's world, students
need skills to earn a living,
raise a family and stay on
the Treasure Coast," Mr.
Lnnon said. "Nearly one
out of two of our students
are currently involved in
vocational training. It is
value added to any educa-
tipn."
,The centers also fit in with
the state's requirement that
eighth-graders declare a
major before entering high
school. In St. Lucie County,
students can choose from
specialized studies, such as
manufacturing at Treasure
Coast High School, con-
sfruction at Port St. Lucie
High School and veterinari-
an technology at Fort Pierce
Westwood High School.
"This gives kids an
opportunity to choose
what's passionate for them,"
Mr. Lannon said. "We're a
school system on the move
isto the 21st century"
,While the Port St. Lucie
City Council had few
questions about the aca-
demic progress of the
school system, there were
concerns over safety.
Councilman Christopher
Cpoper told the board about
the difficulty in visiting his


it. It's my favorite part of the paper.
Please keep it up and maybe expand it.

Senior dating
can be costly
This is a warning to all senior citizens.
Beware of these so-called dating services. I speak as a
person (who thought) that was the best place to meet a
person you may be looking for.
Most do not have that person, (but) they will tell you they
have a long list of just the type of person you are looking
for.
It cost me $2,000 to find that (out).
After you pay your dues, they may send you a name and
a phone number. the rest is up to you.
I did not hear (from this person) for more than five
months.
I had to call just to find out the person moved and didn't
leave a forwarding address. So, I had to take time to find
their new location.
Save your money. If you want to meet a person, go to a
(senior) club, or a dance, or even bingo.
But don't waste your money.

Classical

music to

be played

by youth

BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
When Stuart attorney
Richard Levenstein
began playing the cello
with the Treasure Coast
Symphony in the late
1990s, his wife, Kelly,
often accompanied him
to rehearsals in Fort
Pierce.
She had no idea, then,
that she would become
its president and brings
her passion to its'mission
of promoting music and
music education to its
members and the com-
munity.
The symphony will per-
form its final concert of
the season on April 22 at
the Sunrise Theatre in
Fort Pierce with a per-
formance by the winner
of the Young Artist Schol-
arship, Nicholas Galfond,
a marimba player and
student at Martin County
High School.
Now in its 22nd season,
the symphony is made
up of musicians from all
walks of life, ranging in
age from teens to octoge-
narians.
Beginning in Septem-
ber, they rehearse on
Monday evenings at For-
est Grove Middle School
in Fort Pierce.
There are approximate-
ly 60 musicians who vol-
unteer with the non-
profit group; the
numbers grow as musi-
cians who live up north
or in other countries
return for the season.
This year, the group is
under the musical direc-
tion of conductor
Stephen Torick; his wife,
Kathryn is the assistant
conductor.
The group performs
three concerts in its sea-
son, a holiday perform-
ance, a concert in Janu-
ary, and the final
performance in April,
where the scholarship
winner performs. The
$1,000 scholarship is
awarded each year to a
musician under 25 who
live in Martin, St. Lucie,
Indian River or Okee-
chobee counties.

'The Music Man' strolls into town


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer


There may not be 76 trombones
when Shiloh Theatrical Produc-
tions performs Meredith Wilson's
beloved show, "The Music Man"
at the Lyric Theatre from April
18-22, but the cast will be one of
the largest Shiloh has put togeth-
er for one show.
"This musical is a lot of musi-
cal," said Faye McKenzie, pro-
ducer of the show. "We have a
cast. of about 50, including 12
children. They. have to sing,
dance and act. A lot of communi-
ty theaters cut the dancing, but


we have one of the best choreog-
raphers on the Treasure Coast."
Mrs. McKenzie knows the cho-
reographer well; it's her daugh-
ter, Beth McKenzie Shestak, a
professional actress who has
returned to the Treasure Coast to
raise family.
Casting the principle roles was
a challenge for the producer.
"We had open auditions, and
so many people showed up," she
says. "It was unbelievable. It is
amazing, the amount of talent in
this town. We have what we think'
is a stellar cast."
Among the principals are Rick
Decker as professor Harold Hill;


Sharon Owens as Marian Paroo,
the town librarian; Mickie

pare a recording of a fast
movement from a stan-
dard concerto for solo
instrument and orchestra
and be prepared to per-
form with the orchestra
at its final concert.
"It's a wonderful expe-
rience," Kelly Levenstein
said. "At the end of the
concert, we put the lights
up and the audience asks
questions of the young
artist. It's a nice interac-
tion between the young
person and the audience.
It's a community orches-
tra for the community
and it makes classical
music more accessible
and friendly. It's warm
and inviting, not stuffy."
This year, the sympho-
ny initiated a pilot pro-
gram with Forest Grove
Middle School, donating
eight violins for students
to use for music lessons.
Concertmaster Linda
Spiwak donated her time


and talent to teach the
children. The organiza-
tion hopes to continue
the program next year.
"I believe in classical
music for children," Kelly
Levenstein said. "With
cuts in school programs,
the kids don't know about
it. We did a free chil-
dren's concert this for
year for that reason, too
Seeing people on stage
helps make children
excited about music."
The Treasure Coast Sym-
phony's final concert, fea-
turing Nicholas Galfond,
will take place on April 22
at 3 p.m. at the Sunrise
Theatre, 117 S. Second St.,
Fort Pierce. Tickets are
$17; call the box office at

Preservation and Encour-
agement of Barber Shop
Quartet Singing in Ameri-
ca," she said. "The vice
president of the Treasure
Coast chapter threw out
an invitation and they
formed a new group to do
our show."
Also adding a touch of
theatricality is the set
designer, Darren Cripps,
who used to design sets
for the band Pink Floyd.
"He's an Englishman
who fell in love with an
American girl and lives
here now," Mrs. McKen-
zie said. "His ideas are
fantastic. Being the
genius he is, his is mak-
ing the set revolve and
putting it on wheels and


slides."
Mrs. McKenzie, who did
costuming for the Burt
Reynolds Institute, is
doing the costuming for
this production.
"It's a nightmare," she
said. "I'm the producer
and I wanted it top-
notch. The Lake Worth
Playhouse has lent us
fantastic dresses and we
hope to get some from
the Barn Theatre. We're
pulling costumes in from
everywhere. We have
feathered hats; some of
the creations are fantas-
tic. I hope it will be a big
visual delight."
"TheMusic Man" is cel-
ebrating the 50th
anniversary of its open-


ing on Broadway and has
been performed on stage
and on film many times.
"The challenge is mak-
ing a show that's been
around for awhile look
fresh," Mrs. McKenzie
said. "We'll have a few
surprises. I'm excited
about some of the things
we've got planned."
"The Music Mah" will be
performed at the Lyric
Theatre, 59 S.W. Flagler.
Ave., Stuart from April 18-
22. Performances are
April 18-21 at 8 pm. and

Artist Huong shares her
stories and inspirations
in front of her newly
displayed series titled
4- 'Let's Think Peace'at her
W gallery in downtown
Jensen Beach.

Mi tch Kloorfain
chief photographer


Local artist uses talents


to help promote peace


BY RITA HART
Staff writer


JENSEN BEACH The
owner of the Art, War and
Peace Museum in Jensen
Beach, Huong has spent
her life promoting peace.
It is ironic, therefore, that
on the same. day she
unveiled her latest work of


art, a mural entitled "The
Flag at War," she is fielding
angry phone calls and e-
mails calling her, among
other things, a communist.
The vitriol directed at her
is due to earlier media
reports, quoting Huong
(pronounced "hung") say-
ing she cut an American
flag into a hundred pieces

to create her latest work of
art. Indeed, her own invi-
tation last month to a sec-
ond studio she owns in
Miami stated Huong cut a
flag into many square can-
vases 30-by-30 inches to
create her work.
The words "cut the flag,"
according to Huong, were
misinterpreted due to a
language barrier.
Huong, who came to the
United States in 1975, did
cut 700 blank canvases
into 30-by-30 inch sec-
tions. However, she then
individually painted these
canvases in red, white,
blue and gold hues that
and pieced together the
sections to create her
mural. She added white
doves and drops of red to
represent blood onto those
squares using acrylics, and
used them as a backdrop
for poetry and reprinted
letters from U.S. soldiers
serving in Iraq.
The result is a 20,000-
square-foot thought-pror
voking piece. The 700 sep-
arate canvas paintings
were combined to create a
mural so large that half of
it is displayed in her
gallery in Miami and the
other half in the Jensen
Beach gallery.
Huong interprets the
piece as the American flag
weeping "for a century of
war," and she is not alone
in its creation.
Sandi Wicina, a retired
family therapist, created
the poetry that is part of
the piece.
Mrs. Wicina's son, who
became a quadriplegic
several years ago after a
football injury and later
died, said she met many
veterans with war injuries
when she accompanied
her son to intensive thera-
py sessions.
"Suddenly, I felt like I was
in a war zone," said Mrs.
Wicina.
Huong knows about liv-
ing in a war zone. Her
father was imprisoned in a
Communist POW camp for
nine years. Her brother
was killed in 1975.
When Huong was 25, she
fled her native country.
Originally a journalist, the
self-taught artist has spent
the last three decades trav-
eling throughout the U.S.
and Canada with her
exhibits.
Huong lived in Alaska for

ten years, where she raised
a son. In the mid-1980's,
Senator Lawton Childs
invited Huong to visit
Florida after he saw her
exhibit displayed in the
Capitol rotunda. She even-
tually made Florida her
home in 1993.
When Mrs. Wicina moved
to Martin County and met
Huong in 2003, something
stirred in her.
"Huong had this
provocative painting about
a disabled war vet, and
when I saw it, all my feel-
ings came out," said Mrs.
Wicina
Mrs. Wicina had always
used writing to express her
feelings, but after her son's
death, she developed
writer's block.
"Huong broke my block,"
said Mrs. Wicina. "She
gushes when she paints,
and I gush when I write."
Huong said the Iraq War
evokes sadness and anger
in her that she had long-
ago buried deep inside
after the Vietnam War.
"How could we allow this
to happen again?" she
asked.
One of the first blocks of
canvas the viewer sees
when looking at Huong's
art tells some history of the
flag, under the heading
"Let Me Heal."
It reads, "On June 12,
1774, the American flag
was conceived. The first
day it was used (in) battle
was the Battle of Brandy-
wine Sept. 11, 1777. On
Sept. 11, 2001, she was 224
years and 89 days old."
The piece is displayed
along two walls in Huong's
gallery, and at various
points, a story is told from
the flag's point of view, in
Mrs. Wicina's words.
"I stood firm in the cross-
fire answering the call of
duty, weeping with the liv-
ing, praying for your
dead."
SVisitors at the gallery
.could be seen wiping tears
as they walked slowly
along the walls. Imbedded
in the canvas are repro-
.ductions of real letters
written by U.S. military
members to their families
since the beginning of the
Iraq war.
One letter was written by
U.S. Army Sgt. William
.Sigua to his mother.
"Sure by the time we
leave this deployment, we
might turn this city

around, but you can't erase
the deep hatred between
the groups here. They have
been mercilessly slaugh-
tering each other for long
before this war has been
going on. No amount of
American influence will be
able to remedy that. But I
still don't think we should
pull out anytime soon...I
am honored to have the
opportunity to give back to
the country that has given
me so much, and anyone
who thinks differently
should be ashamed of
themselves. If I do not
come back from this
deployment, you can tell
people that you are proud
of me, and I of myself."

ple. She hopes her art will
help spur average Ameri-
cans from complacency to
action in working toward
peace.
At the unveiling of "The
Flag at War," a steady
stream of visitors came
through Huong's gallery in
the first hour alone. Some
wiped tears, others hugged
Huong and many
thanked her for expressing
what they could not. One
veteran was overheard
telling her about his own
experiences.
Jen LaGratta, executive
director of Florida Arts and
Dance Company in Stuart,
was a college student
when the Vietnam War
began. She said she lost
many friends during that
conflict, and when she first
viewed Huong's work, all

her feelings from living in
that time came flooding
back.
"I feel like we are repeat-
ing history," she said. "But
it's worse now because the
injuries are so overwhelm-
ing."
Mrs. LaGratta under-
stands the message Huong
is trying to convey.
"Her goal is to make peo-
ple aware enough to help
make a change," she said.

requests, answers, and
recipes for Pasta Fazool, a
Key Lime Pie that's safe to
eat, and a great fruit salad.

Keep it clean
Something that I've
thought about for years has
been brought to my atten-
tion.
When buying canned
foods or sodas do you just
open the can or pop the top
and use?
Did you ever stop to think,
"Where has this can been,
who has touched it, was an
animal or insect near it?"
I wash all cans, even soda
and beer cans, with ammo-
nia and water or you can use
vinegar.
Wash and scrub, if possi-
ble, all fruits and vegetables.
I'll bet you buy a bunch of
bananas, break one off, peel
it and give itto your child.
Even though the peel is not
eaten, it can be contaminat-
ed. You know what we now
have to do. This is a scary
world we live in.

Recipe requests
Now for some requests.
+ Marcello is looking for a
stuffed tomato recipe like
his mother used to make.
Elaine is looking for
John Bay & Billie's Grillin'
Sauce in Brevard County.
Helen is looking for a
recipe for walnuts in syrup.
Barbara is looking for a
recipe for poppy seed rolls.

Facts about honey
Sugar is something we all
crave. While many of us
are trying to cut back on
refined sugar, you might
want to consider using
honey to stave off crav-
ings.


ARLENE BORG
The Grammy Guru

Although it is a sugar (25
percent sweeter than table
sugar), Steven Pratt, author
of"SupeifoodsRx" and
"SuperFoods Health Style,",
says honey offers many
benefits.
He offers these facts about
honey.
Honey contains at least
181 known substances and
its' antioxidant activity
stems from phenolics,
peptides, organic acids and
enzymes.
The darker the honey,
the higher the level of
antioxidants.
Honey increases good
bacteria in the intestines.
It can help lower blood
pressure and cholesterol.
So, let's add some honey to
a smoothie, drizzle it on
fruit, use it on toast or make
my "Let's Empty the Refrig-
erator Fruit Salad."
Warning- Never give
honey to a baby younger
than 1 because it may
contain C. botulnum, which
can cause infant botulism.
Older children and adults
are not usually affected by
these spores, which are
present throughout the
environment.
Enjoy. See you next week.

Corrections
Due to editing errors, the
March 30 "Romancing the
Stove" column had some
incorrect directions:
When making the Pizza
Granna place 3/4-inch


strips of dough in a criss-
cross pattern on top of the
pizza. Also, the oven
temperature for the
ricotta pie should be 350
degrees E

LET'S EMPTY
THE REFRIGERATOR
FRUIT SALAD (NIB)
Are you tired of looking
at that lonely peach, plum,
nectarine or any fruit that
doesn't get eaten? Are the
bananas getting too many
brown flecks? Is there only
one slice of melon left?
Here's a recipe to use to
empty the refrigerator.
. Remember to peel fruit
only when necessary.
Cut fruit into bite-size
pieces and place in a large
bowl.
Squeeze on some lemon
juice, which prevents fruit
from darkening.
Add 1/2 cup orange juice
or any juice available
(except prune juice).
Melt 1 to 2 tablespoons
honey in 1/3 cup warm
water. Pour over fruit, mix
well and taste for balance
of sweetness.
For adults only: Spike it
up with a splash of
anisette or schnapps.
Cover, chill and enjoy.
Any kind of fruit can be
used, from fresh to canned
to frozen.

KEY LIME PIE (NIB)
A key lime pie is pale
yellow. If you want color,
add a few drops of green
food coloring.
In the past, this pie was
made with eggs and not
cooked thoroughly.
.Today, with thdie threat of
salmonella, the ingredients
must be cooked.
To top the pie with
meringue, follow the recipe
for cooked meringue or buy
powdered egg whites and
follow the package instruc-
tions.


1 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
3 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups water
3 egg yolks, beaten
1 tablespoons butter or
butter substitute such as
Smart Balance
1/4 cup fresh key lime
juice *
Grated rind of 1 key lime
Baked 9-inch pie shell or
graham cracker pie shell
Combine first 4 ingredi-
ents in a saucepan. Gradual-
ly stir in water. Cook over
low heat, stirring constantly
until thickened.
Remove from heat.
Quickly whisk a small
amount of hot mixture into
beaten egg yolks. Then
whisk that into saucepan.
Return to heat and cook
stirring for 2 minutes. Stir in
butter, lime juice and rind.
Cook until butter is melted.
Pour into baked pie shell
and cool. Top with
meringue and bake as
instructed. Whipped cream
or whipped topping can be
substituted.
* If regular lime juice is
used it will be a lime pie.

COOKED MERINGUE
Enough.for 1 pie
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup plus 2
tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoons
cornstarch
3 egg whites, at room
temperature
Dash of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine water, sugar and
cornstarch in a small
saucepan. Cook over

People suffering from dust mite allergy symptoms may benefit from
The MITEE CLEAN(R) system, an innovative mattress cleaning and sanitiz-
ing process. We use proven technology to assist you in winning the,battle
against microscopic dust mites. We focus on mattresses in home and com-
mercial environments where people spend 1/3 of their lives sleeping. In
addition, carpets and upholstered furniture can be treated. Similar
technology has been utilized in Europe for many years.
Indoor allergens are closely linked with allergic disease and asthma.
A National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, NIH survey suggests
that dust mite allergens at levels associated with asthma and allergy are
present in approximately 23.2 million U.S. homes.
We perform a FREE NO OBLIGATION MATTRESS TEST to deter-
mine the dust mite allergen level. If the mattress tests positive, upon your
request, Indoor Hygienics will complete a 3 step process to clean and sani-
tize the mattress. This comprehensive approach includes:

1. High power vacuuming of both sides of the mattress.
2. UVC Germicidal light treatment for microorganisms, bacteria
& viruses.
3. Non-toxic, anti-allergen sanitizing spray not harmful to
humans or pets.

Crape myrtle


offers endless


color in summer


If you have ever visited
South Carolina during
the summer, you will see
endless rows of color in
many neighborhoods.
Most likely the plants you
are looking at are crape
myrtle.
Although they are not as
widely used in our area,
they cangrow equally as
well in Florida.
Crape myrtle (lager-
stroemia indica) is a versa-
tile flowering shrub that
boasts glowing summer
color sure to delight the
senses.
The plants, which require
minimal maintenance, are
extremely draught resistant
once the plants are estab-
lished. They are ideal for
community planting for this
reason.
The only disadvantage is
that the plants loose all their
leaves and flowers during
the winter and become
dormant.
Crape myrtle will grow
efficiently in almost any soil
type, but they will, have an
advantage if you use good
quality topsoil.
For proper preparation,
dig a hole at least twice the
size of the root ball. When
setting the plant into the
hole, be sure it is not any
deeper then it was in the
original container.
Fill the remaining space
with the high quality topsoil
I mentioned earlier.
Be sure to water the plant
thoroughly and use the
'water to fill push soil into
2any open cavities that might
"exist under or alongside the
'plant.
It is a good idea to mulch
:around the plant, as this will
conserve moisture and also
-aid in weed control.
Although the plants will
tolerate draught, it is a good
idea to water crape myrtle at
least once a week until they
,are well established.
,Watering once a week
'during the prime flowering
'season also helps the plants
'produce a bumper crop of
,color.
The best time to prune
'plants is in winter when
they are dormant. This way,
you will not remove any of
'the flower buds. Pruning
helps the plant produce an
,abundant array of color
'during the summer bloom-
ing season.
Crape myrtle can benefit
from a seasonal fertilizing
'program.
Use an all-purpose 8-8-8
'or 16-4-8 as the fertilizer of
,choice. If you have some 10-
10-10 in your garage, you
scan use that also.
Only apply a light sprin-
kling around the plant, as
too much fertilizer can
either burn the plant or
cause rapid growth with
little flower production or
,possible even both.


Try to fertilize just before a
good rain is forecast. You
can always obtain this
information at www.home-
townweathernet.
If you'd like to start your
own plants, crape myrtle
can be easily propagated
from cuttings. The best
candidates for cuttings are
stems that are new, but
mature enough to be semi-
woody in appearance. If you
flex the potential stem to be
used, it should flex without
breaking.
Although rooting hor-
mone is not always neces-
sary, it can be used.
The cuttings will do best
if they are put in a good
quality-rooting medium,
such as Jiffy Mix, or equiva-
lent.
Retain moisture by
covering the plants with
plastic to form a sort of
"hot house" effect.
Be sure to keep the
cuttings moist during the
rooting process. Do not put
the new cuttings in the
sun.
Although crape myrtle is
mainly disease free, they
can get powdery mildew
from time to time. Spray
with a fungicide at the very
first signs of this disease.

No need for telephone chat if you have IM


A re you one of the
millions of com-
puter users who,
have discovered instant
messaging?
By instant messaging,
I'm referring to those
popular "buddy list"
programs that let you
chat with friends while
you are online.
Do you use one? I do. In
fact, I have accounts set
up with Yahoo Instant
Messenger, AOL Instant
Messenger, MSN Messen-
ger and ICQ.
I have so many instant
messaging accounts that
sometimes it can be hard
to get any work done
with all the chatter.
It's OK though. I can
slink into invisible mode
with all of them and see


who is online, but to
them I appear off-line.
Quiet ensues so I can
get some work done. But
I can also still keep track
of who's online.
To some, instant mes-
saging can seem annoy-
ing, because they haven't
discovered the invisible
mode yet. To others it's a
godsend.
With instant messaging,
many "cube dwellers" in
corporate America can
keep in touch with loved
ones without being on
the phone.
And some of the servic-
es work with a Web cam,
allowing video chat and.
even (when conditions
are right) full-blown
video conferencing.
All this from a little

program that loves to
launch on startup.
So, how does one need
to get started with
instant messaging?
First and foremost, you
need an Internet connec-
tion.
If you are an AOL
subscriber, you have a
buddy list that's already
built into your account.
Your buddy list allows
you to chat instantly with
any of your buddies that
are online using AOL or
are online using AOL
instant messenger.
You don't have to be a
member of AOL to use
AIM; you can download it
from www.AIM.com, sign
up and use it through
whatever Internet
provider you choose.
Two more popular
instant messaging
programs are MSN
Messenger and Yahoo
Messenger.
Again, these programs
need an Internet connec-

let you keep a list of
friends and show you
when they are online.
Some of the features are
different. For instance,
with MSN Messenger,
you can allow a "buddy"
to take over your com-
puter to help with a
repair. You can't do that
with Yahoo Messenger.
When one of your
friends is online, all you
have to do is double-click
on their little icon, and
you can start chatting
with them instantly.
Some services even let
you link up to your'cell
phone, allowing you to
see your buddy list and
chat with them from the
road.
So, what's the catch?
Basically, the one
drawback to these
applications is the fact
that your friends all have
to be running the same
flavor of instant messen-
ger programs as you.
That's why I have so
many different ones.
Sometimes, persuading
a friend to sign up can
also be tricky, but I have
found that most people
enjoy the benefits
immensely once they
take the plunge.
Now, which one to sign
up with?
Probably the easiest
way to choose a messen-
ger program is to ask
your friends. Send an e-
mail to each and ask if
they use instant messen-
ger, and if so, which one.
Then, if you have some
friends using AIM and
some friends using MSN,
you can install both, or
try to persuade your
friends to switch to one
common program, but
that's unlikely to happen.
Once you are signed up
with a messaging client,
the next step is to send
notices to all of your
friends inviting them to
join your buddy list.
If they are using the
same instant messaging
program, they can just
accept you as a buddy
and add you to their list.
If they don't have the
program, they will get an
e-mail with a link so they
can download and install
the program.
Once you get your
buddy list built, you'll
find staying in touch with
family and friends takes
on a new dimension.

Class action lawsuit could quash dealer fees in South Carolina


The Tallahassee law
firm of Myers and
Fuller is represent-
ing several car dealers
that have been named ag
defendants in a class
action suit, along with
almost every other new
car dealer in the state of
South Carolina, related to
charging of dealer fees,
aka documentary fees,
dealer prep, etc.
The plaintiff's lawyers
representing the class of
consumers who are
bringing the lawsuit claim
that, "the placement of
such fees on a dealer's
buyer's order or invoice is
deceptive, in that it
implies that the fee is
separate and distinct from
the general overhead that
car buyers expected to be
included in the sticker
price for a car and that
such placement suggest
that the fee is mandatory."
Readers of this column
have seen several articles I
have written about or
mentioned dealer fees.
Virtually every car
dealer in Florida charges a
dealer fee although it may
carry some other label,
such as documentary fee
or dealer prep fee. Several
states have made this
illegal and it 19oks like
South Carolina may be
next.
A particularly onerous
part of the dealer fee is


that dealers are legally
required to charge every
customer this fee if he
charges just one cus-
tomer.
I supposed the lawmak-
ers were well intentioned
when they made this
ruling, but like so many
other well- intended
lawmakers, they inadver-
tently "bit the car buyer
right in the butt."
I think their reasoning
when they passed this law
was to prevent car dealers
from discriminating
against less informed and
sophisticated buyers.
In hindsight, we can see
how stupid this law is,
because it allows the car
dealer to charge every-
body the dealer fee,
including the informed,
sophisticated buyer.
Because virtually all car
dealers in Florida charge
this fee (my dealership is
the only one I know that
doesn't), the car dealer
overcomes objections to
the dealer fee by saying,
"this is a fee that all
Florida car dealers
charge."'
What is a car buyer to
say? He has been told that
everybody charges it and
that it is illegal for the
dealer to take it off his
buyer's order or invoice.
Florida did pass one law
to protect the consumer
against the dealer fee.
This law says dealers


-4@






EARL STEWART
On Cars

must include the dealer
fee in advertised prices
(the price a salesman
quotes you is not consid-
ered an "advertised
price"). Many dealers
don't know about the law
or simply ignore it.
You can pick up the
Palm Beach Post any
weekend and find several
car ads with prices that do
not include the dealer fee.
In the fine print at the
bottom of the ad, it will
say "plus dealer fees" or in
some cases, tell you the
amount of the dealer fee.
Florida law also pro-
vides a loophole in this
law, which was the subject
of my last column. The
loophole is that dealer
group ads don't have to
abide by the law.
Dealers who do under-
stand the law and wish to
abide by it have figured
out a way to get around it.


They simply pick one car
of a particular model and
advertise that price
including the dealer fee.
You don't know that
there is only one car
available with the dealer
fee included in the price.
The only disclosure is a
number along side the
car, such as #2668A, which
is supposed to let.you
know that this is the only
car available with the
dealer fee included in the
price. That innocuous
number is the stock
number of that particular
car.
There is usually another
"gotcha" which is "price'
good on date of publica-
tion only" in the fine
print. The ad often says
something such as "25
others available at similar
savings." The reason it
says "similar" and not the
"same" is because they
add the dealer fee to the
prices of-the others.
Chances are, the car
advertised is not the right
color and equipment for
you and, .even if it were,
the chances that they will
have it there when you
arrive are slim and none.
If the odds aren't already

stacked totally against
you, the salespeople are
often not paid any com-
mission or a very small
commission on all adver-
tised cars.
How easy do you think
it will be to buy that
advertised car from a
salesman who can make
a lot more money by
selling you one without
the dealer fee included?
The class action suit in
South Carolina is symp,
tomatic of rising con-
sumer awareness around
the country.
Today's consumers are
more educated and
sophisticated than ever
before. They are also less

advantage of. Call me a

I think it won't be long
before we see a law in
Florida to protect car
buyers from the dealer
fee.

Pasta Fazool, or to be
grammatically correct,
Pasta Con Fagiole, once
considered "peasant food"
is now found in your finest
Italian restaurants.
However you say it, this is
simply pasta and beans. It is
best made with small
tubular pasta such as
tubetti, tubettini or ditalini.
My mom tells me that
years ago, pasta was sold in
local markets in huge
barrels, and the broken
pieces at the bottom of the
barrels were mixed together
and sold for a penny a
pound expressly for this
dish.
By omitting the ham you
will have a vegetarian dish.

1/2 teaspoon salt *
1/2 teaspoon black

In mediunm-size pot, cook
pasta in boiling salted water
until al dente; drain, set '
aside.
Chop onions and garlic in;

chopped. Saute mixture in
oil or water until golden.
Add tomato sauce, water

Add pasta and cook until
pasta is tender.
Season to taste with salt,

Get spiritual life in order



by slowing down outer life


Is time speeding up? It
may not be, but our
use of it surely is.
In previous centuries, it
took several months to
get messages around the
world. Now, with the
Internet, a message can
go around the world in a
matter of seconds. This is
the electronic age we live
in.
Something else has
risen in our lives along
with these advances that
is cause for alarm.
Because of living in this
fast-paced world, our
lives continue to speed
up, but we are gradually
wearing down.
We are caught up in this
whirlwind of activity. It's
like being on a treadmill,
moving forward, but not
really getting anywhere.
The stress of living this
way is eroding the basic
fundamentals of life.
It's time to get back to,
the basics. So how do we
deal with this imbalance?
We have created a lot of
quick fixes to treat the
effects this stressful way
of life. There are fast food
restaurants dishing out
offerings to the hungry,
weary, overworked and
undernourished souls.
If you drive down the
interstates at 80 miles
and hour, which is 10
miles over the speed
limit, cars driving 90 and
100 coming up from
behind almost run you
off the road in their haste.
When we watch televi-
sion, we are bombarded
with hundreds of miracle
cures, quick fixes and
prescription drugs to
relieve what ails us.
The story goes that if we
take all these little white,
red, blue, yellow and
green pills we will feel
better, have less anxiety,
reduce pain or sleep
better.
Alcohol is used to relax
or numb pain until it
sometimes becomes
addictive.
All the quick fixes do is
treat the effects of our
bodies, minds, hearts and
.souls breaking down,
instead of removing the
causes.
Is there any hope or
solution to living a better
quality life or removing
some of the quick fix
ways? I believe there is. It
begins when we admit to
being powerless over the
outer life, and begin to
want a more peaceful,
healthy, happy and
creative life.
The journey is within,
and the first step is to
love yourself enough, and
begin to listen to and
follow the heart, rather
than the head.
The heart is the emo-
tional intuitive center
and the window to the
soul and instincts. Until
we become centered
within and begin to listen
to and trust the divine
inner guidance, we are
shut off from the greatest
source of truth we will
ever. know.
Surrender to the heart.
Refuse to let doubt, fear,
guilt, anger and indeci-
sion in the head, overrule
the kind, peaceful, loving,
happy nature living in the
heart. It all comes down
to the choices we make.
If you were to take an
inventory every day of all
the things you think you
need to take care of, then
let the heart tell you if
action is needed on them.


L ._ i-.- .i.l.. .....,-

JAMES TUCKER
The Spirit Guide
would not get time or
attention.Why?
Because the intuition
and instincts through
visions and feelings from
within know the truth
and order of importance.
The head does not.
It's time to get back to
the basics. Go within and
find, love, nurture your-
self, and make wise
choices. This creates a
new feeling of safety and
security. It makes us
happier as well.
Begin to create new
causes that give hope for
a better life. We can't
change the past. Take a
good, honest look at your
own happiness level and
create new ways to make
it better.
The universal spirit is
there for us waiting in
the wings for us to call
upon it.
Put your higher power
first in life. This opens up
a great reservoir of
unconditional love
within us poured out by
the higher power
The next change is that
we begin to love our own
or spiritual families
more. Everyone needs a
loving family to surround
us. These are our roots in
life. Without roots a tree
or flower will wither and
die.
After creating spiritual
and family roots then go
to the world.
Going to the world first,
without creating spiritual
and family roots, is the
basic cause of addictions
and quick fixes. You can
overcome much of the
stress, pain and fear in
life.
Isn't this the way you
truly want to live?
It's all a matter of
getting life's priorities in
line. Then make wise
choices and create new
healthy choices.

Manna from heaven


tIst as God had prom-
ised centuries earlier,
Abraham's descendants
became a great people, the
Israelite nation. The
mighty Egyptian Pharaoh
tried to crush them, but
God defeated him, by
parting the Red Sea.
For the first time in over
four centuries, the
Israelites were free, but
homeless. The Bible
records the story of the
exodus, in Exodus, chapter
12. Led by Moses, they left
their life of bondage in
Egypt. Imagine with me
for a moment, how
difficult it must have been.
,Mothers nursed their
babies, children wailed
with exhaustion; men
struggled to carry all of the
family belongings on their
backs! They plodded on,
day after day. They marked
time by resting on the
Sabbath.
Weeks melted into
months, soon they ran out
of food. Many of the
people moaned, "we can't
go on like this!" Others
agreed, and added, "We'd
rather be back in Egypt, at
least we had food to eat
there!"
'The glory of the Lord
came blazing through the
clouds, "The Lord is with
you," he thundered, as the
people shielded them-
selves from the bright light
of God's glory."At dusk you
will eat meat, and at dawn
you will eat bread, and you
will realize I am your
God!"
,Dusk fell, and flocks of
quails appeared in the sky
and fluttered to the
ground, around the camp.
A quail is a small, brown,
short-tailed bird, like a
tiny pheasant. Quails cross
the Sinai Peninsula on
their migrations between
Europe and Africa. They
fly quickly for short
periods of time, but tire on
longer flights. When this
happens they fly very
slowly, and near to the
ground.
: The hungry Israelites
dashed eagerly back and
forth, catching the quails.
Then, they settled down
for a feast.
When the layer of
morning dew lifted, the
ground contained a fine
flaky substance. It was as
fine a frost. The Israelites
took one look and said to
one another, "manna,"
meaning "What is it?"
It looked like coriander
Seed, it was white, and it
tasted like wafers, made
with honey.
So Moses told them, "It's
the bread that God gave to
you to eat!" The people
gathered the bread, some
more, some less. When
they measured out what
they had gathered, those
Who gathered more
minanna had no extra
manna! Those who
gathered less manna were
not short! God supernatu-
rally adjusted the amount;
tp as much as they needed
for one day, for each
family!
: Moses instructed them,
"Don't save any of today's
bread for tomorrow."
Some of the people paid
no attention to Moses and
kept some of it until
morning, but they awak-
ened to find it was spoiled.
,: They realized that there
Was no need to save it for
the coming days. Morning
after morning, they found
fresh manna in abundance
on the ground!
; The manna appeared
each morning for six days.
On the morning before the
Sabbath, Moses told the
S people to gather twice as
tuch. "There will be no


manna for tomorrow"
Moses explained, "The
Sabbath day is set aside for


.

worshipping God and
resting."
When the Sabbath
dawned, they discovered
that the manna they kept
overnight was just as fresh
and delicious as the day
before! Some were disobe-
dient, and went out
looking for more manna
on the Sabbath, but didn't
find any.
God expressed his
displeasure through
Moses, with the people
who disobeyed, and
searched for manna on the
Sabbath. "How long will
you disobey my com-
mands, and not follow my
instructions?" So the
people listened to God
and stayed at the camp-
site, and rested, and
worshipped God on the
Sabbath.
Directed by God, the
Israelites moved on and set
up camp at Rephidim,
where they found no water!
They complained, "We will
surely die of thirst!"
Moses struck a rock at
Herob with his staff, and
water came gushing out for
the people to drink!
God superseded natural
events and provided the
needs of the Israelites for 40
years in the wilderness! He
will do the same for you and
your family, just reach out to
him today, through Jesus
Christ! Please contact me
with prayer requests,
questions, or comments. .

Pro boxing is back on the Treasure Coast


PSL resident
headlines local
fight night
BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
Al Gazdacko will sit and
tell you all about how he
used to be one of the top
amateur boxers in the
country. How he. used to
knock people out with reg-
ularity, building a career


record of 25-7. .
He will also tell you
about the five years he was
out of boxing, when he put
his focus, on his family
business of JGF Flooring.
But that his heart wouldn't
let him quit without trying
to take on the professional
ranks.
But he would rather tell
you about his upcoming
fight on April 20 at the Port
St. Lucie Community Cen-
ter against Stephen Cox.


The Treasure Coast
Clash will feature at least
10.fights on the evening of
April 20, including Troy
Harden versus Justin Dan-
forth, and Khabib
Alakhverdiev versus
Devarise Crayton, but
none more anticipated
that Gazdacko's.
The fight will not only be
his long awaited pro
debut, but also a home-
coming for the Port St.
Lucie resident. "It's going


to be big, I know that,"
said Gazdacko "I fought all
over the place but fighting
in my own home town is
going to be the best thing
tatever happened to me."
Gazdacko grew up in
Port St. Lucie, and attend-
ed Fort Pierce Central
High School. It was there
he figured out he was a
good fighter, getting into

study hall.
At 17, he found the gym
and never looked back.
He began his comeback
in 2005 after securing a
fight with Leonard Collier,
but on March 31, 2006, but
Collier pulled out two
weeks before and left "Big"
Al waiting. Now, more than
a year after he thought he
would be back in the ring,
he finally is.
Coming back from a
five-year lay off hasn't been
the easiest thing for Gaz-
.dacko either. His wife was-
n't for it, and neither were
some of his other relatives.
But after helping train kids
at the Port St. Lucie Police
Athletic League in his time
away from the ring, he got
the bug to do it himself.
He traveled to Vero
Beach to spar with unde-
feated heavyweight. Mike
Marrone. The perform-
ance got the attention of
House of Champions
trainer Gus Curren and
Gazdacko has been train-
ing at the gym ever since.


Reluctant to give his age,
Gazdacko has earned back
his youthful presence in
the ring since his return
and shows no signs of get-
ting older. Being able to
train alongside Marrone,
who fights Malichy Farrell
(16-0) in Atlantic City, N.J.
on the same night at the
Treasure Coast Clash, has
helped Gazdacko get into
fighting shape faster than
expected. It has also
helped him learn to take a
punch again, this time
from. one of the best fight-
ers in the country.
"If I can go six rounds
with Mike, then I can take
a punch from anybody,"
said Gazdacko. "(Oppo-
nents) won't hit me 'as
hard as Mike Marrone
does. They aren't as quick
and as fast as these guys
are. These guys are heavy-
weight prospects."
Standing 6-foot, 5-inch-
es, and weighing in at 230
pounds, Gazdacko pro-
vides a big target for his
opponents to land a
knockout punch, but what
separates him from other
fighters ishis speed.
Running three to five


miles every other day and
going to sprinting practice
Monday, Wednesdays and
Friday has given the big
man light feet in the ring,
and a quick jab. It also has
earned him the respect of
some of the top boxers in
the country who also call
the House of Champions
home.
"He can put together
more than two punches,
he can put together like
four and five punches
which is odd for a heavy-
weight. He's got good fluid-
ity," said Marrone. "Train-
ing here, he's developing
the attitude of a fighter.
That doesn't mean like a
mean surly kind of a per-
son. But you learn to act
like a fighter. It's some-
thing you learn by being
around it,"
After the fight on April
20, Gazdacko will fight
again on June 22, but does-
n't know who is will be
against just yet. But he isn't
concerned about that right
now, he is *focused on
showing everyone in his
hometown that "Big Al" is
back in the ring, ready to
put Port St. Lucie on the
professional boxing map.

Senior all-stars shine


By MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
The crowd was waiting for


The players were waiting
for it.
Larry Sanders just didn't
deliver it until the last cou-
ple minutes of the game.
Sanders couldn't hit a
three-point shot for the first
38 minutes of the Treasure
Coast All-Star Senior Show-
case. But with just over two
minutes remaining,
Sanders, who rarely took
shots beyond the arc during
his career at Port St. Lucie
High School, nailed two
consecutive three's to put
the White team ahead for
good.
The 6-foot, 10-inch center
went through a defender
and added a thundering self
ally-oop. dunk off the back-
board, in the final minute to
seal the deal.
The White team, which
consisted of players from
Port St. Lucie, John Carroll,
Okeechobee, Jensen Beach,
Lincoln Park and St. Lucie
West Centennial, defeated
the Blue team (Vero Beach,
Fort Pierce Westwood, Fort
Pierce Central, Sebastian
River, Martin County and St.
Edwards), 112-100.
"That was something I
told (fellow Jaguar team-
mate and All-Star Mario
Saintelus) I was going to do,"
said Sanders, earned the,
games MVP honors after
scoring 29 points. "It gives us
a boost. Everybody is good
so, I knew they were going to
come back. I just stuck with
(the three-point shot) and I
shot it."
Both the boy's and girl's
all-star games took place
before vocal crowds on the
campus of Indian River
Community College on
April 4. The event was a
chance for area seniors to
show off one last time before
their high school careers
come to an end. The games


even had a collegiate feel
and were played over two
20-minute halves instead of
four 8-minute quarters.
Anthony Raimondi (Mar-
tin County), Ashton Jones
(Sebastian River), Terry
Mckeliver Westwood), Paul
Bernard (Central) and
Kenny Moore (Vero Beach)
all shined for the Blue team
in the loss. Each player
scored in double digits.
While the boy's game fea-
tured big dunks, the biggest
coming from Saintelus as
time expired (a two-handed
windmill off the baseline),
the girl's game was more of a
three-point contest.
In the first half alone,
there were 14 three-poihnt
shots made, five of which
came off the hands of game
MVP, and Jensen Beach
standout LaToya King. King,
who finished with 30 point's,
said that she wasn't trying to
rack up the points, but just
having a good time playing
in the relaxed atmosphere.
The last game she played
was the 3A state champi-
onship, which her Falcons
won.
"I didn't expect (to score
that much), it feels good,"
said King. "I just wanted to
come out and have a good
time."
Kenyetta Brown of Port St.
Lucie (15 points) and
Cameo Kent of Jensen
Beach (13 points) helped
King lead the Blue team to a
dominating 83-64 victory
over the White team.
Jamarra Robinson of Cen-
tennial had a team-high 21
points for the Blue team in
the loss.
Kent seemed to enjoy the
game the most of any player,
as she constantly yelled the
crowd and joked with offi-
cials during the game. After
one shot, she even high-
fived fans while running
down the court to play
defense.

Senior Showcase at Indian
Wednesday, March 4.
Eric Smith of Jensen Beach,
Katie Kerr of Fort Pierce
Central and Wendell Adamns
of Lincoln Park Academy
were selected to coach in
the game, but in reality, they
were just fans for the night,
as they let their players
enjoy the spotlight.
"Its lots of fun when you
get the best in 'the area
together. I think it shows
that the Treasure Cast play-
ers can match up against
any area," said Kerr. "I don't
think I said anything. Most
of these girls have been
playing on a varsity level for
four years. I don't have to tell
them anything."
It also gave the coaches an
opportunity to coach their
star players one last time.
"It kind of brings you back
to the season," said Smith,
who admitted he watched
the game more than he
coached it. "Seeing those
kids on the floor makes you
wish you could hold on to
them."

Gadgets galore can help to improve your golf game


In this, my final chapter
on the 2007 PGA
Merchandise Show, I
want to tell you about the
latest and greatest in golf
accessories.
Every year, more gadgets
come out to assist golfers.
Some help stretch our
muscles before we play.
Others are designed to
help our swings and aid us
in hitting longer, straighter
shots.
There are also some that
protect the healthy
investment in equipment.


Joseph P. Crawford, MD FACS
Steven J. Hulecki, MD FACS
A. Randall Seeger, MD FACS


Let's look at a few of these.
Medicus weighted driver
(www. inedicus. corn)
This is one of the best
swing aids I picked up this
year. Weighing in at more
than 2 pounds, the driver
is designed to impart a
softer feel at impact for
more realistic feedback
when hitting balls. The
driver will help smooth,
your tempo and allows
you to feel where the club
is throughout your swing.
The results are longer,
straighter drives.

exercises to create proper
swing habits and muscle
memory by exercising
specific muscle groups.
The molded grips help you
learn the proper grip as
well.
Dancin' Dogg shot making
simulator (www.dancin-
dogg.com)
This super sturdy simu-
lator measures all aspects
of your impact and
translates that into infor-
mation that gives you
immediate feedback on
swing speed and path, ball
spin, trajectory, angle and
distance.
The unit costs less than
$400 and includes indoor-
safe balls, the swing pad
and sensors, cables to
hook it up to your com-
puter and all the software
you need.
Also, you can tee up
alongside Tiger Woods in
the computer golf game,
using your own clubs and
actually hitting shots while
playing great courses from
around the world without
the airport headaches, all
in the comfort of your own
home.
Kart Kaddy
(www.golfkartkaddy.com)
My favorite accessory
from this year's show is the
Golf Kart Kaddy. ,
This product hooks
securely onto your golf bag
and then onto the back of
the golf cart. The design
places your bag at an angle
away from the cart, one
more closely resembling
what you get when you
use a pull or push cart or a
stand bag.
The design removes the
stress of over-the-head
repetitive lifting'and
returning the clubs to the
bag before and after every
shot. It also makes every
pocket easily accessible.


Clean up time (www. the-
pocketbc.com)
Dirt, grass, fertilizer and
the like, all love to stick to
a golf ball.
The Pocket BC Ball
Cleaner is a pocket-sized
golf ball cleaner that
integrates portability with
practicality. Now you can
have a clean golf ball for
every putt and every tee
shot.
The inner lining stays
moist, while the.water-
proof outer lining, along
with your pocket, remains
dry. The moisture is kept
locked inside by using a
strong magnetic seal. To
clean up, apply a couple
drops of liquid soap and a
gentle scrub.
Chill Towel
For those unbearably hot
days, the new Chill Cool-
ing Sport Towel could be
just what you need. Based
in Key West, Chill Interna-
tional has plenty of
experience in beating the
heat, and has put that to
good use with this prod-
uct.
Pre-moistened with a
unique formula that cuts
heat on contact anywhere
while refreshing and
invigorating, the Chill
Cooling Towel is perfect
for summer golf. Each 12-
inch by 12-inch towel
comes individually
wrapped and hygienically
sealed and fits perfectly in
your golf bag. I toss mine
into the cooler on the cart
along with ice and my
water bottles.
With the price of clubs
these days, protecting that
investment is a must.
Daphne's Headcovers
(www.daphnesheadcov-
ers.com)
A family-run company in
business for 25 years now,
Daphne's Headcovers is


the leader in the industry
with more than 200
designs to choose from.
Daphne's latest line is
called "Heads and Tails."
The unique series for
drivers and fairway woods
are full-body animals that
split with the animal's
head to cover the driver,
and its tail for the fairway
wood. The company even
has a new line for hybrids
and large putters and
every cover comes with a
lifetime warranty.
Sun Mountain is one of
the top bag and outerwear
makers in the world. The
company is constantly on
the cutting edge in terms
of technology. Its latest
bag is called the Hug Bag.
Anyone who walks
knows how difficult those
long walks onthe course
can be when carrying a
bag full of clubs and golf
balls. The new system
implemented on the Hug
lineup transfers the weight
of the bag from the
shoulders to the waist,
reducing upper body
fatigue.
Throw in great features,
such as a lightweight,
plenty of pockets and a
dual strap, and you have
one great golf bag.
Last but not least is my
"product of the show"
award winner.
For the golfer who
cannot decide whether to
ride, carry or pull their
bag, Tri Bag (www. tri-
bag.com) has just what
they need.
Fully equipped with
removable wheels, a dual
harness shoulder strap
and a retractable telescop-
ic handle, the Tri Bag can
be used in myriad ways.
If you wish to ride, in one
snap, you can remove the

Wallen All-Star Classic a success


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
While the high school
kids showed off their skills
at the Fourth Annual Don
Wallen All-Star Classic at
Martin County High
School on April 7, fans did-
n't have to look far to see
the future of Treasure
Coast basketball.
Middle school all-star
teams from around the
area competed in a tour-
nament before the high
school games, and showed
that they too could make
the crowd "ooh and ahh."
Six teams from Jupiter to
St. Lucie County partici-
pated in the event. The
championship game fea-
tured the Treasure Coast
Tar Heels and The Martin
County Fighting Tigers
with the Tar Heels defeat-
ing the Tigers, 34-31 to win
the tournament.
All games had a running
clock and 16 minute


wheels and store them in
the handy storage bag,
keeping your car nice and
clean.
If you wish to use the bag
as a pull cart, leave the
wheels on, pull out the
retractable handle and off
you go rolling smoothly
along on the sealed twin
bearing wheels. If you need
to pick your bag up during
the round, there is no.
problem. The dual harness
system distributes the
weight of the ultra light bag
across your shoulders and
back just like a backpack.
The Tri Bag comes loaded
with.pockets, including an
insulated snack pouch for
drinks and food, retractable
legs, an eight-way club
divider and six color
combinations.

halves, except the final,
which had four eight-
minute quarters.
Chris Wallen, head coach
of the Tigers and son of ex-
Martin County High
School coach Don Wallen,
liked the idea o getting his
kids a taste of what it is like
at the next level. All his
players will attend Martin
County high schools next
year.
"The idea is to get these
kids to play ball all year
long so they are ready for
high school," Wallen said.
"Its my dad's tournament.
My -son played in it, and
I'm playing in the alumni
game. It's a pretty fun day
for me."
In the title game, Jorel
Terrell (8 points) and
Matthew Baptiste (11
points) led the Tar Heels to
the victory with a fierce
inside presence.
Terrell, who will be a
freshman at Treasure


Coast assisted nearly 1100
families faced with
unplanned pregnancies in
2006. All proceeds from this
event will go to helping
make Care Nets services to
the community in 2007
possible. For details,
contact Care Net at (772)


Coast High School in the
fall, liked that he got to
play against kids that will
be playing on a regular
basis next year.
"Now I know how they
play," said Terrell. "I just
have to watch and see how
they play next year now. I
know what I have to do (to
get better)."
Tar Heels head coach,
and Martin County alum,
Kindell Rivers was excited
about his team's win, but
more excited about the
learning experience the
tournament offered the
young players.
"It's good to see a variety
of talent from around the
state of Florida," Rivers
said of the night all-star
game the featured players
from Tallahassee and
Gainesville as well as local
stars. "We're looking at the
small things to help them
get to the next level. Hope-
fully, they will use them."

MESSAGE FOR ALL

CATHOLICS:
Jesus is coming!!
Do you like to call yourself a Catholic? Have you
been attending Sunday Mass every week? If you are not, how can
you call yourself a Catholic? True Catholics live their faith. They
go to Mass weekly, go to Confession once a year and help to sup-
port their Church. So don't go around calling yourself a Catholic
if you are not practicing your faith.
Have you had the feeling like something significant is going
to happen? Well you are not alone. Many people are sensing that
Jesus is going to return soon and there is good reason to believe
that He will be. In 1931 Jesus appeared to St. Faustina and told
her that she was going to prepare the world for His final coming
and that He was going to pour out His mercy.
Jesus said that He wanted a new feast celebrated that would
be the last hope of salvation. This new feast was made an official
feast by Pope John Paul in the year 2000. The Pope said that he
had fulfilled the will of Christ. Jesus specifically asked that this
Feast of Mercy be celebrated on the first Sunday after Easter. Pope
John Paul II himself died on that feast in 2005.
Jesus made an incredible promise for that Feast of Mercy
which is called Divine Mercy Sunday. Jesus said that "The soul
that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall
obtain the complete forgiveness of sins and punishment." This
means a complete renewal just like in Baptism like you have never
sinned before. Wow, isn't that an incredible offer for us?
Did you know that missing Sunday Mass, without reason, is
considered a mortal sin? What is a mortal sin? Mortal sin is a sin
that'brings death to a soul. Do you feel like.you have been sepa-
rated from your faith? Are you wondering about your life in
Eternity? You should be. Hell is real and you should be getting
serious. Go to Confession and receive God's mercy.
Did you know that when you go to Confession, you are not
confessing to the priest, but Jesus instead? Jesus told Faustina
"When you approach the confessional, know this, that I Myself am
waiting there for you. I am only hidden by the priest, but I Myself
act in your soul. Here the' misery of the soul meets the God of
mercy. Tell souls that from this fount of mercy souls draw graces
solely with the vessel of trust. If their trust is great, there is no limit
to My generosity. Come with faith to the feet of My representa-
tive...and make your confession before Me. The person of the
priest is, for Me, only a screen. Never analyze what sort of a priest
tlat I am making use of; open your soul in confession as you would
to Me, and I will fill it with My light."
Many feel that their sins are unforgivable but, Jesus said,
"Were a soul like a decaying corpse, so that from a human stand-
point, there would be no hope of restoration and everything would
already be lost, it is not so with God. The miracle of Divine Mercy
"restores that soul in full. In the Tribunal of Mercy (the sacrament


of C~onfession)


.the greatest miracles take place and are incessant-


ly repeated." (1448) "Here the misery of the soul meets the God of
mercy." (1602) Every sin imaginable could be forgiven by Him!
On the evening of His resurrection Jesus appeared to His
Apostles and the first thing that He did was to give them the
power to forgive sins (John 20:19-31). This was done through the
power of the Holy Spirit. For sure it wasn't the Lord's intention
just for the Apostles to forgive sins, but rather, for that authority to
be passed down through the Holy Spirit. That is' why Confession
is so much of an uplifting experience; we are actually receiving
heavenly graces and the forgiveness of sins from the Lord Jesus
Himself
Most people haven't spent much time thinking about the
future. Some might think that they are quite brilliant and success-
ful in this life, but what is that as compared to eternity? The father
of lies has everyone focused on this life while not thinking about
what happens in the eternal life. If you really want to be wise,
think about where you are going to spend eternity. We will be
there for quite a long time. Many do not believe in the fires of hell.
Unfortunately, those are the ones that will usually end up there. Be
wise, think about it, and take action now before it is too late!
It would be a real bad mistake for someone who has been
away from the Church to think that they could return just for that
one day. Our Lord knows our intentions and part of making a good
Confession is intending never to sin again. Missing Mass on
Sunday and Holy days offends Our Lord very much and is a seri-
ous sin. We need to be serious about our faith and do the best we
can to help to support our Church and to help Jesus to save as
many souls as possible before He returns to judge the world. Get
a fresh start and become and active Catholic again. Jesus needs you
right now.
Try to go to Confession before Divine Mercy Sunday.
When you enter the confessional, close your eyes and talk to Jesus.
He will respond through the priest with the words of mercy. You
will walk out feeling as light as a feather and with a great weight
lifted off of you. You will be made whole again. Don't wait; this
could very well be your "Last hope of Salvation".

FORT PIERCE In their
Regular season finale, the
Fort Pierce Fire defense
couldn't stop anything.
In the first round of the
Southern States Football
League Playoffs, they
couldn't be stopped.
Fire defenders intercept-
ed four passes, recovered
three fumbles and scored a
touchdown, leading Fort
Pierce to a dominating 31-
8 victory over the East
Coast Reapers on April 7,
at Lawnwood Stadium in
Fort Pierce.
The Fire will now play
the Magic City Bulls in
Miami April 14 for the
American Conference
championship for the right
S to play in the Rice Bowl on
May 5 in Orlando.
The Bulls scorched the
Fire defensive backfield for
four touchdown passes
three weeks ago, and it was
clear that the team has
regrouped for the playoffs.
With an" extra week of
practice and rest before
the playoff run (all SSFL
teams had a bye week after
the season), Fort Pierce
worked extra hard on mak-
ing sure they wouldn't get
embarrassed again. The
playoff motto for the Fire
defense is "stay deep," so
they would remember how
badly they once played.
"We came to practice
this week and we practiced
hard," said safety Mike
- White. "We knew we
couldn't take this team
lightly so we came in hard
and now we know we got
to play Miami three times
as hard."
White's two intercep-
tions one in the end zone
were key in keeping the
Reapers scoreless until the

games final minute of
play. His second came
with 6:05 left in the game
with Fort Pierce leading
17-0 and essentially killed
any momentum East
Coast had.
Three plays later run-
ning back Torrey Howard
sprinted down the right
sideline for a 58 yard
touchdown.

"We told (our defense) to
react a little more quickly
when the ball was in the
air," said Fort Pierce head
coach Jerome Stone "That
was one of our problems
against (Magic City). The
corners and the safeties
weren't getting over to the
ball. This week, the ball
gets in the air and every-
body is swarming to it. I
think that was the differ-
ence."
East Coast got the ball to
start the second half, and
despite being able to move
it effectively in the first
half, they were unsuccess-
ful this time around. On
their second play of the
half, Reapers quarterback
Lou Montgomery lost the
handoff to running back
Anthony Jackson at the
four yard-line and Fort
Pierce' linebacker Chris
Johnson. picked up the
loose ball and ran the
short distance for the
touchdown.
Defensive coordinator
Kenny Holmes had called
the play even play "Even
Mike Go" to defend the
run. The play calls .for
Johnson to blitzed up the
middle and knock over
anything in his path. But
by the time he got there,

the ball was already on the
ground waiting for him.
The play would set the
tone for the rest of the
night.
