more than 150 children

Eight of those children

PORT ST. LUCIE It
only takes one shot to
end a hostage situation,
and the Port St. Lucie
Police Department has
two of the best snipers
in the world to take that
one shot.
' Sgt. Steve Helseth
and Sgt. Paul Grohows-
ki won first place in a
sniper competition ear-
lier this month, beating
more than 60 other
sniper teams from
around the world.
"It's our Super Bowl,"
Sgt. Grohowski said.
"It's neat to have com-
petition of that caliber
and to come out on
top."
The two placed 17th
at last year's competi-
tion, the highest Port
St. Lucie snipers have
placed since participat-
ing in the competition
over the last seven,
years.
"We were finally able
to win it," Sgt. Helseth
said. "It feels great
because it gives us a
chance to validate all
the training we do on a
monthly basis and all,
year long."

"I think in life I feel it is
my obligation to give back,"
Mrs. Bailey said. "We
couldn't have children on
our' own, so we decided
we'd help some other fami-

out."
More people like the Bai-
leys are needed on the
Treasure Coast. United For
Families, a nonprofit
organization that provides
foster care and programs to
help prevent child abuse
on the Treasure Coast, has a
need for more foster homes

officers

honored

BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST., LUCIE It
was a night honoring law
enforcement officers of
the year, while raising
money to support the
families of fallen heroes.
The Hundred Club of
St. Lucie County held its
annual dinner recogniz-
ing the county's top five
officers.
"They work so hard for
the public and they are
not highly paid," said
Jane Rowley, president of
The Hundred Club. "But
they do their job for the
love of their community."
The dinner, held on
April 12, at Club Med in
Port St. Lucie, also serves
as a fundraiser for the
organization.
The Hundred Club,
formed in St. Lucie Coun-
ty in 1987, provides
financial support to the
families of law enforce-
ment officers who have
been injured or killed in
the line of duty.
Represented at the din-
ner were the Port St.
Lucie Police Department,
the St. Lucie County
Sheriff's Office, the Fort
Pierce Police Depart-
ment, the St. Lucie Coun-
ty Fire District and the
Florida Highway Patrol.

improve the home," Mrs.
Kaiser said. "Child abuse is
still an issue. We still have
children being hurt and we
need to do something."
Not all children removed
from their homes because
of abuse are automatically
sent to foster homes, Mrs.
Kaiser said. The agency tries
to place children with family
members first.


There are approximately
1,000 children living out of
their homes.
Mrs. Bailey said that while
there is a need for foster
homes for children of all
ages, there is a greater need
for homes,, which could take
in teenage siblings.
"How scary is it to come
into foster care and first be
separated from mom or
dad, then not know where
your brothers or sisters are,"
Mrs. Bailey.said. "It helps a
tiny bit to keep siblings


together."
If an appropriate home
can't be found, then the
children are sent out of the
area, which can really dis-
rupt their daily lives.
It can create quite a hard-
ship when children are
removed from their schools
and away from friends, Mrs.
Kaiser said.
"Having enough foster
homes is always a struggle
for us," she said. "It's not a
good situation. Routine is
an extremely important part

IMPORTANCE OF FLOSSING
Q: Is using a mouth rinse just as good as flossing?
A; Some studies have shown that a mouth rinse can be as effective as flossing in
patients who have mild to moderate gingivitis. Gingivitis is the early stage of
periodontal, or gum disease. The studies 'did not address the effectiveness of
mouth rinse versus floss in preventing tooth decay or in advanced cases of gum
disease. So the American Dental Association still recommends regular flossing, at. .
least once a day, to help remove plaque between teeth. The flossing, of course, f' .
should be in addition to brushing your teeth twice a day with an ADA-approved
fluoride toothpaste.
Even the most thorough brushing, though, will niot remove plaque and food debris that can
accumulate between the teeth and just under the gum line. An interdental cleaner is a suitable
'substitute for floss for getting between the teeth. Of course eating a balanced diet and avoiding
snacks between meals, especially sugary snacks, is a vital part of an oral health regimen, as are .
regular visits to the dentist. Talk with your dentist about products and practices that will keep c
your smile healthy.

interfere with the kids' rou-
tines as little as possible."
Potential foster parents
must complete a 10-week
training, as well as success-
fully pass a drug and back-
ground check. Foster homes
are also checked monthly by
United For Families staff.
Children who come into
foster care have Medicaid to
cover medical expenses,
and foster parents receive a
small stipend to help with
care.
But more importantly, the
homes should provide a
nurturing environment for
children who are emotion-
ally vulnerable.
"You have to come in with
your eyes open and a com-
mitment with your heart to
the children," Mrs. Bailey
said. "These children have
gone through the trauma of
being separated from their
families and they come with
baggage. The commitment
must be there for the chil-
,dren."

911 wireless phone issues

prompt national inquiry


BY MATT DONEGAN
Staff writer

ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
Just the other night, a
woman, a little drunk,
called 911 from her cell
phone to report a domes-
tic disturbance.
But she didn't know the
exact address where she
was.

"I knew the area she
was in, and she knew the
area she was in, but we
couldn't pinpoint her,"
said Kathy Pate, assistant
supervisor of the St.
Lucie County 911 call
center. "I had to convince
her to leave and get away
from the guy because the
programming wasn't
working. We got an offi-
cer to the area so she
could try to find him."
This type of situation is
not uncommon through-
out the nation.
When people call 911
from a landline, dis-
patchers are able to find
their exact geographic
location on a computer-
ized mapping system,
said Matt Reynolds, who
has been a St. Lucie
County dispatcher for
more than two years.
But tracking calls from
wireless phones is differ-
ent.
"We've found we can
get into a, two- to four-
house range," Ms. Pate.
said. "People assume the
powers-that-be know
what's going on and Big
Brother knows exactly
where you are and what
you're doing. We don't."
Earlier this month,
Federal Communications
Commission Chairman
Kevin Martin addressed
the issue. He told the
Associated Press he
would open a new


inquiry at the agency
regarding the tightening
of requirements on track-
ing wireless calls.
In St. Lucie County, 911
dispatchers use a process
known as triangulation
to zero in on cell callers.
Cell phones that are
turned on work like loca-
tor beacons. Cellular net-
works constantly scan to
determine the general
area where the user is
located so calls can be
routed to the appropriate
cellular tower. Triangula-
tion uses two or three dif-
ferent cell towers to
measure the distance of
the received signal.
Part of assuring that
tracking works falls on,
wireless network
providers, which have
had to upgrade phones
and coverage areas with
increasingly better 911
technology.
Earlier 'wireless tech-
nology routed 911 calls to
a dispatcher at a public
safety answering pint
locally, or hundreds of;
miles away, but did not
give dispatchers much
information to work with'
except a voice on the'.
other end.
.Better technology,
known as Phase I, gives
emergency dispatchers' a
call back number when a
wireless call comes inm
This is important should
the call be dropped;'
which Ms. Pate said doe,s-
happen often.
"The lines get tied up
constantly because ,of
dropped calls," she said.:
"Nobody's there, they-
hang up, it's misdialed.

Humane Society cuts adoption rates


BY MATT DONEGAN
Siaff writer


:The County Commission
voted in favor of an ordi-
nance April 4 that will
require pet owners who
live in unincorporated
areas of the county to pay
registration fees for their
animals.
Those who live outside
the cities of Fort Pierce and
Port St. Lucie will have to


pay either $10 a year or a
one-time fee of $25 to keep
their sterilized dog or cat
registered. The fee for dogs
and cats that have not
been sterilized will be $100
annually.
Though the ordinance
doesn't go into effect for
several months, Frank
Andrews, the executive
director of the Humane
Society of St. Lucie County,
said people are already


dropping off numerous
unwanted animals.
"We hope this is just a
temporary spike because
people don't really under-
stand that the ordinance
doesn't start until Oct. 1,"
he said.
Passage of the pet ordi-
nance couldn't have come
at a worse time for the
Humane Society, Mr.
Andrews said.
"It's spring time," he said.


"That's when 'all the pup-
pies and kittens tend to be
born."
That said, the shelter
would struggle to accom-
modate a larger influx of
animals.
So an incentive program
Sis now underway at the
Humane Society. Regular
adoption fees have been
discounted by $25. While

City's Christmas tree follows
fate of previous trees
Port St. Lucie's eighth Christmas tree, a Southern red
cedar, has joined previous trees and has been cut
down.
The tree was removed from the front of City Hall ear-
lier this month after it showed signs of dying. Branches
became brown and brittle, and the tree was removed.
It is unknown what caused the latest tree to die. Pre-
vious trees were killed by hurricanes and too much
water from a broken sprinkler.
A live Christmas tree has been used since the late
1990s for Port St. Lucie's annual tree-lighting ceremo-
ny. ;
Staff has recommended using a cut tree for this year's
event.
Fire destroys shed, numerous
animals displaced
Nearly 200 snakes, turtles, birds, dogs and a cat had
new temporary homes after a fire destroyed a shed and
caused smoke damage to the owner's home.
" Firefighters with, the St. Lucie County Fire District
responded to a fire at a house in the 100 block of S.W.
Mark Court. The fire started in, a shed, which housed
lawn maintenance equipment.
No one was injured in the fire and all of the animals
were safely removed from the property.
Fred Spector, owner of the property and animals, has
a permit to breed reptiles.
It was not know at press time what caused the fire.
Serial rape suspect faces additional charges
A man charged last month with the December 2005
kidnapping and rape of a 29-year-old FortPierce
woman has been charged in a separate sexual case
involving a gun.
Robert Lee Kenon Jr., 33, of 4710 N.E. Savannah
Road, Jensen Beach, was charged last week after a
female victim from a Jan. 17, 2006, incident identified
him in a photo lineup..
The woman told police she was finishing a shower
when she saw a muscular arm outside the bathroom,
but realized it wasn't her boyfriend. A black male
entered the doorway holding a handgun in his right
hand and his genitals in his left, according to police
reports. He pointed the gun at the woman and told her
to turn around. She told him she was pregnant, and
that her boyfriend would return from the store shortly..
He then turned and left the apartment.

Stop the abuse

I read an article in today's paper about cock fighting.
I think it's time for the politicians to get a little bit of guts,
and pass legislation that will stop this kind of animal abuse
in the state of Florida,
Here's what I suggest:
If a person attends a cockfight, he gets five years in the
state penitentiary, no parole.
If a person is running a cockfight, ten years in the state
penitentiary, no parole.
If a person attends a dogfight, he gets five years in the
state penitentiary, no parole.
If a person is running a dogfight, ten years in the state
penitentiary, no parole.
If a person abuses animals, like in the puppy mills, ten
years in the.state penitentiary, no parole.
It is time that we crack down on these people. It is dis-
gusting to have people in this county that do this kind of
thing to animals.
The only way we are going to change it is for the politician
to get enough guts to pass a law, and enough judges to
enforce the law, to get rid of these" people one way or the
other.
I notice today that most of the people at those cockfights
were Latinos. If they don't like this country, they should get
the heck out it. They don't have a right to come here and
abuse animals just because that's what they did in their
home country.
If they are not citizens, deport them. If they are citizens,
give them five to ten.
It will stop, one way or the other.

Criticizing Imus' critics

I would like to comment on the Imus thing.
Yes, Imus did say something that was off-color, which was
pretty stupid to say. But, I am watching Al Sharpt'on he is


Commercial News Providers"
1 ^ l-fc* ^^


supposed to be a reverend. I'd like to know where his
church is, and where he gets his credentials.
He looks'like a "poverty pimp," or something.
Whatever else he is, he looks to me, and sounds to me by
the way he is speaking, to be a bigot, and a racist from word
go.
Talk about some guy losing his job; this guy has no job to
lose, but they ought to get rid of him.

Going after the wrong man

I have a few comments about what's going on in this
world today. This is coming from a hard working citizen of
Florida.
You illegal aliens, get ready to get out of the country,
because that's coming.
Also, as to Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, if all they can do
for the black community is get Imus fired, that's a sad thing.
What they should be doing, is going after the so-called
heroes of the black movement, like Snoop Dog, Dr. Dre, and
Ludacris. They're the ones who are demeaning the black
race, not the white people.
White people could give two bits.


Prosecute her

I would like to make a comment on Nancy Pelosi going to
Syria.
I think she should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of
the law. She sat down with a known enemy of the United
States, a terrorist nation, a nation that supports terrorism,
and probably funds terrorism.
She had no right going there. She should be prosecuted.

Comments to 'Let's have a Snowbird Tax'

This is in response to the comments on the snowbird tax.
I think before people put their comments in a public
newspaper, they should get their facts straight:
For one, not all snowbirds are rich people, and for most it
is a stepping-stone to living there all year. Not all people are
just able to pickup and leave the states they live immediate-
ly.
In response to the part on real estate taxes and homeown-

Plea to clean up city

Here is a serious issue that
the city fathers keep ignor-
ing and tabling about each
time it come to their atten-
tion.
It seems that new parks,
more housing -develop-
ment, and the east and west
corridors and the big
issues, which, 'no doubt,
will be over the cost esti-
mated, and you and I will
pay for their mistakes
Now is the dry season.
The low. canals and empty
ditches show all the crap
that the nice folks of Port St.
Lucie dump. But then, our
motto is "Keep St. Lucie
beautiful." It is violated
every day.
Notice along any con-
struction site, and all sides
of our roadways. You will
find .debris of all sorts a
total disgrace, especially on
the east of U.S. 1.
The buck is passed on to
departments that are
under-manned and under-
financed.
This is due to all the
"important issues" that the
city fathers and all depart-
ment heads have deemed
very important.
Here are a few steps to
correct these ugly
sights/sites:


*Post signs for dumping,
with very heavy fines of
$1000, and up.
*Notify neighborhoods
that surround canals and
ditches regarding dumping,
and the heavy fines.
' *Utilize the Diamond
Back Air Boats that spray
for weeks for clean up.
*Get our whiney -sheriff
to stop asking for funds for
more pods for our prison-
ers. Let him take a few les-
sons from Sheriff Joe
Arpaio, of Maricopa Coun-
ty, Ariz.
House the prisoners in
tents. Put them on high-
ways and roads for,
cleanup. Pay them a
salary, but let them pay for
room and board.
If you think it is too hot
here, try 110 degrees, and
even hotter, there.
*Code Enforcement? Just
what is their function? This
department has been neg-
lected for years. The direc-
tors, .and staff seem to just
collect a salary.
The officers bring up resi-
dents who have broken the
code laws. They are told
they have a fine to pay, if it
is not taken care of, the
judgment staff gives"the
resident a longer time to
pay, and a smaller amount
to pay. What is this?


We also allow businesses
to throw their advertise-
ments in driveways, which
becomes garbage. These
are often thrown into drive-
ways where there is no
occupant.

Make Florida
affordable for
working class

We are all aware of how the
high property taxes in Flori-
da have made our state
unaffordable. For snow-
birds, who live out of state,
yet own retirement proper-
ties here, for the entire
working class, and more
:importantly for underpaid
teachers, firefighters and
law enforcement employ-
ees.
It is known that we have
difficulties with recruiting
teachers to our area to fill
all of the educating posi-
tions. Even a greater prob-
lem keeping those teachers
here! Those that do decide t
move here to our sunny
state are quickly leaving our
schools once they realize
that they can't even qualify
for a home, and surely can't
afford the outrageous prop-


erty taxes!
I feel that our state could
help those that help others
by simply allowing them to
be exempt from paying real
estate taxes for the first five
years of employment, or
until their salary reaches a
reasonable determined
amount, whichever comes
first. ,
They are some of the finest
and most dedicated indi-
viduals in our community,
the first of many to lend a
helping hand! A great deal
of these individuals are
Florida natives, and hope to
continue their family her-
itage here. I am certain that
most of them would love to
be more involved in the
community; however, their
second jobs seem to inter-
fere with such situations.
From volunteering at the
local ball fields, to spending
extra time with students
who need a little extra men-
toring, teachers, firefight-
ers, and the police force can
barely keep afloat with their,
low paying salaries in com-
bination with high taxes!
The fact is that we need
these dedicated people to
stay here in Florida, to con-
tinue to save our lives, edu-
cate us, and keep us feeling
safe. It is about time that
we come up with a plan


that will enable them to
keep Florida as their home.
Let's let these large corpo-
rations, like Wal-mart, and
others, help pay their fair
share. Instead of giving
them tax exemptions, let's.
give them to the people
who need it most. We need
to stop filling North Caroli-
na, and Tennessee with our
residents that simply can't
make it here.

In praise of servers

In the past I have read
comments on tipping in
restaurants.
The server is paid only
$3.38 an hour, which
means the restaurant is
depending on you to pay,
while they pay practically
nothing.
This, ,unfortunately, is
legal. I agree that the serv-
ice you receive will deter-
mine the acceptable tip of
15 percent.
Here is something I didn't
know, and I'll bet you don't
know.
Many times a person calls
ahead to a fine restaurant
to have an order ready. The
person drives up to. the
take away,\ or to go, win-


dow, the food is delivered,.
usually by a beautiful
young person, probably a
struggling college student,
pays the bill, and goes on'
his way.
The person filling, the
order also receives only
$3.38 an hour, and their
living depends on your tip.,
Please remember this the'
next time, and say a prop-.
er thank you.

Save our students

We know that there are,
destructive forces, within:
our schools, and across our
United States, trying to
hurt the students and the
teachers.
We must save our youth
from these destructive
people who try to tear
down our educational sys-.
tems of learning.
Our nation must neveri;
fail our youth.
The American nation..
must return to education,
as number one, keep. our:.,
morals high, and let no one,'
ever discourage our stu-,I
dents.

Rants & Raves
From page A6
er's insurance: Most of your snowbirds are paying not just-
one time more, but two to two and a half times more taxes
than what you are paying for the privilege of living there
part time.
The snowbird's homeowner's insurance policies are not
only more than you pay, but covers less than your policy,
just because they can't be there all year whether our homes
are being taken care of or not.
Why should we have to pay the property taxes, and a 1
percent increase in our sales tax, just because there are
some of you that are trying to push us out?
When the hurricanes and storms hit, the snowbirds are
right beside the rest of you helping to fix up their homes,
and being there to help support friends, and the clean up of
the community.
If it wasn't for your, as you put them, "tightwad and rude"
snowbirds, half of your businesses wouldn't be in business
anymore.
Keep trying to push the snowbirds out, and see what it
does to the Florida economy.
You'll be begging them to come back when you can't
afford to live there any more yourself.
What will you do when the people who are paying your
share and their share of the taxes are no longer there to put
up with the abuse that people like you hand out?
Don't lump us all together. We have good and bad in all
citizens, and I think your attitude is showing the bad.
Thank God, not all people are like you. I, for one, have
wonderful friends who have supported me all the way in
our strive to live in Florida full time.
Come on fellow snowbirds, respond to this article.
Personally I am tired of being bashed by the people that
claim to be so friendly. One of the maifi qualities that brings
us to Florida is the friendliness of the people and the beauty
of the land.

More on the Snowbird tax

With regard to the snowbird tax, was the person who
wrote that article about Canadians ashamed to print their
name?
Such insults! Restaurants thrive when we are here, and if I
added up the money I have spent in 30 years, I think the city
would be happy.
Newspaper should insist that the name of the ranter be
printed as well.
This is from one who loves it here.

A suggestion for reducing property taxes
As a young man, I was privileged to work with exceptional
editors and reporters during the time when newspapers
were respected for their.investigative expertise.
I would hope that the Hometown News might continue
that practice, and provide its readership with the vital infor-
mation it needs.
Let's face it, a lot of.people desire to live in the Sunshine
State. This is one of the many reasons why property values


have skyrocketed in the last four or five years. The surge in
property taxes has resulted in the state's citizens being
forced out of their homes to look to resettle in other parts of
the country.
The finger of blame has been pointed at the land develop-
ers, quick money real estate investors, nest- building snow-
birds, and the dreaded county property appraisers.
The devaluation of our dollar (inflation?), along with sup-
ply and demand is some of the reasons why the value of
property has continued to rise.
Thank goodness, the ownership of property has proved
worthwhile.
I believe that readership requires and deserves something
that only the newspaper can provide a little investigative
research, some time spent delving into the public records,
and a concise article on why property taxes have soared.
Millage, millage, millage!
It doesn't appear that anything affects property taxes like
good old millage.
If the value of a home is doubled, then the assessed millage
will result in a doubling of the amount of taxes obtained.
An elected, or appointed official, can proclaim that they
are holding the line on millage, and more than pad their
departmental budget.
With increased funds, they can bump up their budgets,
increase salaries, hire more public employees, build newer
facilities, increase discretionary spending, and appear like
diligent public servants rather than a modern day John (Q.)
Dillinger.
Providing a small increase in the Homestead Exemption,
or raising Florida's sales tax, isn't the answer.
It is up to newspapers, and other media who want to help
their readers.
Shine some:light on just what kind of revenue gathering is
taking place in our towns, cities, school boards, county gov-
ernments, and assorted state governmental taxing agen-
cies.

Require propeller guards
There's a lot of talk on the television, and in the newspa-
pers, about saving the manatees.
Why not pass a state law requiring all small vessels operat-
ing in Florida's inland waters to have propeller guards?
These are wide steel bands that encircle the propeller
blades to protect them.

End the war

I'd like to make a couple of remarks about our current war.
First, since the 19th century, the U.SA. has been using the
word "terrorists" to terrify the public into supporting what-
ever conflict we were involved in at the time.
Uncle Sam has always demonized whomever we chose to
be against, often reclaiming them as friends once the war
was over.
Right now, no one really knows exactly who the enemy is,
or why they are the enemy. We just know them as terrorists,
because we're told they are against us.
We also know that thousands of our troops are either
dying or returning home maimed for life. This must end
now. There is no way to win this type of "war."


My second point is that our local Christian religious lead-
ers have completely fallen down in their job concerning war
and violence against our "enemy."
It is their principal duty to support the teachings of Jesus
Christ, and this they have not done.
No Christian may fight a war for any reason. Turn the
other cheek, love your enemies, and return good for evil,
comprise the essence of Jesus' message. I challenge our
local religious leaders and Christians to do the right thing,
and condemn this pitiful war against the Iraqi people.
However, I sympathize with priests and ministers because
they would probably lose their job should they defend true
Christianity. Remember that Jesus was killed for his radical
philosophy about loving all people and doing harm to no
one.

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 Republicans
would lose some of the Hispanic vote.
That's what the Democrats are up to. They want the His-
panic vote..

Knock, knock

Please help me, somebody.
I have a very nosey neighbor. She never comes over unless
she wants to borrow something or she wants me to do
something for her.
Every time I have company, she's be-bopping over to bor-
row something. She wants to see who is here;
She tells me when to cut my grass and when to clean out
my rose garden.
Please, give me some kind of answer how I can cope with a
very nosey neighbor.

Stop chopping down trees

Is there some way we could say it fresh, say it louder, say it
brighter so that people could hear the words: STOP
CHOPPING DOWN TREES.
Trees take hundreds of years to grow. They are the shelter
and food source for our friends, the wild critters.
At the end of my block, a woman who never walks, only
drives, has her husband summon the city to hack down the
nature wall that protects my backyard from the heavy traf-
fic. Four kinds of.birds nest there, and there.are mangroves
entwined in and amongst the other foliage.
"Messy looking," is what they think. I think that life is
messy. Death is neat.
The birds and the lizards, squirrels, opossums all seem to
agree.

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

as the "Most Outstanding
Publication" of home deliv-
ered newspapers with 25'
percent or more editorial
content.
In 2004, Hometown News
received the third place
overall award from AFCP,
after only one year of publi-
cation. In 2005, Hometown
News won first place over-
all, and in 2006, Hometown
News received second place
overall.
"We're the reigning No. 1
in both associations (IFPA
and AFCP)," said Steve
Erlanger, publisher of
Hometown News. "To the
best of my knowledge, that's
never happened before,
which is about as good as a
result as you can ask for."
One AFCP judge com-
mented that Hometown
News is "clearly an out-.
standing publication that
features good photography,
excellent local editorial,
and lots of color ads in an
easy-to-read format with
high quality printing."
Hometown News gar-
nered 12 overall awards,
including "Best Internet
Home Page" and "Best Pre-
sentation of Retail Display
Advertising on the Inter-
net."
Hometown News photog-
raphers took five awards.
Brevard County photogra-
pher Kaitlin Norton won
"Best Original Black &
White Photography Used in
a News Event." Chief pho-


tographer Mitch Kloorfain
took home second place
honors in the same catego-
ry.
Palm Beach County pho-
tographer Hobie Hiler
received first and third
place honors for "Best Orig-
inal Color Photography
Used in a Feature or Gener-
al Interest Story."
Mr. Kloorfain also
received honorable men-
tion in the category of
"Best Original Color Pho-
tography Used in a News
Event."
Three Hometown News
advertisements, designed
by the Fort Pierce team,
received third-place hon-
ors.
More than 4,500 entries.
were submitted by nearly
150 companies nation-,
wide.
"We continue to prove
our team puts forth more,
commitment and more
effort than any other team-
out there," said Mr.,
Erlanger. "We've also won
more national awards than
any other community
newspaper group in the,
country, which is also veri-
fication of our team's com-
mitment.
"To be recognized by
your peers with the volume
of excellence that we have
makes all of the effort that
much more worthwhile.
This team should be and
I'm sure they are espe-
cially proud of what it has,
accomplished."

Sgt. Steve Helseth oversees the shooting skills of three police officers from Germany, who
visited Port St. Lucie last year. Sgt. Helseth and his sniper partner, Sgt. Paul Grohowski,
placed first in an international sniper competition.


Sniper
From page Al
The competition, held
yearly in St. Petersburg by
Snipercraft, a nonprofit
organization dedicated to
helping police snipers
improve their craft, is no
walk in the park. Officers
train under strenuous
conditions, which help
prepare them for the
stressful situations they
may encounter in real life.
"We have to be able to
control our 'cardio' to
shoot well," Sgt. Grohows-
ki said.
For one competition,
the.shooting partners had.
to take turns taking shots
at a target while doing
jumping jacks and run-
ning, all while wearing gas
masks. Another contest
had them run with nearly
35 pounds of equipment


and successfully take a
shot to eliminate a sus-,
pect.
"It's very, very vigorous,"
Sgt. Grohowski said.
The Port St. Lucie Police
Department. has four
snipers on the SWAT
team. They are called out
during hostage situations,
and are typically used for,
scene observation.
"We provide real-time
information to our com-
mand during a hostage
situation," Sgt. Grohowski
said. "The whole idea is
we are lifesavers."
The men use their
equipment to watch a sit-
uation and let the entry
team know what type of
situation they are going
into. They only shoot
when a situation cannot
be defused peacefully.
"The only thing that
counts is that one' shot,"
Sgt. Helseth said. "We


practice all year long for
that one shot."
Sgt. Grohowski said that
while he enjoys his job as
a sniper, he does not relish
the day he has to shoot a
suspect.
"It's a bad day no matter-.
what," he said. "The most
frustrating part is we have
to take a life to save some-
one."
The department's other
two snipers, officers
Robert Loupe and Carl
Durbin, placed in the
middle of the pack. They
finished in 31st place. Sgt.
Helseth, who is the sniper
team leader, said he is
proud of all the men.
"I have all the confi-
dence in the world in our
snipers," Sgt. Helseth said.
"We practice hard, and we
have a sense of profes-
sionalism and duty. We'll
be there when the time
comes."

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".

If our culture
sounds like one
that fits with your
ideas on the way
business should
be conducted,
please call us.

Fellow Florida Car Dealers, if you don't
know me, I should tell you that I don I profess
to be some "holier than thou" car dealer who
was always perfect for the past 38 years.
When I look at some of my past advertising
and sales tactics, I am not always proud.
But I have evolved as my customers have
evolved. My customers' expectations, level
of education and sophistication are much
higher today. Your customers are no different.
My remarks are made sincerely and with a
positive intent toward you and your custom-
ers. I am not trying to tell you
how to run your business. I "MY Cu.
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your expeciath
customers.
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 high
to nearly $1,000. This extra
charge is programmed into
your computer. It has been made illegal in
many states including California, but is still
legal in Florida. The reason you charge this
fee is simply to increase the price of the car
and your profit in such a manner that it is not
noticed by your customers. This is just plain
wrong. I used to charge a dealer fee ($495)
and when I stopped charging it a few years
ago it was scary. But I did it because, I could
no longer, in good conscience, mislead my
customers. Just because everybody else
was doing the same thing, did not make it
correct.

Now, here is the good news. After eliminat-
ing the dealer'fee my profit per car did drop
by about the amount of the dealer fee, but
my customers realized I was now giving them
a fair shake and quoting a complete out-the-
door price with no "surprises". And the word
spread. My volume of car sales began to rise
rapidly. Sure, I was making a few hundred
dollars less per car, but I was selling a lot
more cars. I was and am selling cars to many
of your former customers. My bottom line
has improved, not because I eliminated the
S dealer fee, but because I was
toiners' able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
Ons, level or used car. You can do the
same.
tion and Why am I writing this letter?a
I'm not going to tell you that
ition are I think of myself as the new
"sheriff' that has come to
er today." "clean up South Florida". In
fact, I am well aware that this
letter is, to some extent, self-
serving. Many people will read this letter and
learn why they should buy a car from me,,
and not you. And, I am also aware that most
dealers who read this will either get angry and
ignore it or not have the courage to follow my
lead. But maybe you will be the exception. If
you have'any interest in following my lead,
call me anytime. I don't have a secretary and
I don't screen any of my phone calls. I would
love to chat with you about this.

Q Does diet play a role in tooth decay? oo
A. Healthy eating habits lead to healthy teeth. Like
the rest of the body the teeth, bones and the soft tissue
of the mouth need a well-balanced diet. Children
should eat a variety of foods from the five major food
groups. Most snacks that children eat can lead to
cavity formation.The more frequently a child snacks,
the greater the chance for tooth decay. How long food
remains in the mouth also plays a role. For example,
hard candy and breath mints stay in the mouth longer,
which cause longer acid attacks on tooth enamel. If
your children must snack, choose nutritious foods such
as vegetables, low-fat yogurt, and low-fat cheese which
are healthier and better for children's teeth. Also be
careful of what y9ur child is drinking as sugary drinks
(even drinks with natural sugars) can cause cavities in
between the teeth.
.At Ardalan Pediatric Dentistry, we strive to provide our patients with a
state ofthe art dental facility. We aim to provide treatment in afiun and relax-
ing environment./ for oth the patient and the parent. To that extent, we offer
several amenities not provided at other .t -i. including a video arcade,
movies thrmutghout the office, Wir-Fi internet access, a modern sterilization
area, digital radiography, and a reception area designed to be comfortable for
both parent and child.
We strive to make each and every visit to our office a fun one!

Croatia,'pearl of the Adriatic'


Croatia is one of the
new "must see"
destinations.
Rich in history, art,
culture, architecture,
wine and gourmet
cuisine, Croatia has
everything the most
savvy of traveler would
want.
With its sublime stretch
of Adriatic coast, Croatia
has long been regarded
as one of the most
beautiful parts of
Eurqpe, and is often
called the "new Riviera."
The booming tourist
industry that was inter-
rupted by war in the
early 1990s has swept
back in force, and visi-
tors are flocking to its
string of coastal and
island resorts.
Officially called the
Republic of Croatia, this
pearl on the Adriatic Sea
sits at the crossroads of
Central Europe, sharing
boarders with Slovenia
and Hungary to the
north, Serbia to the east,
Bosnia and Herzegovina,
and Montenegro to the
south as well as a sea
boarder with Italy to the
west.
Many major cruise lines
offer trips, that visit the
city of Dubrovnik on the
southern tip of Croatia as
either an embarkation
port or a port of call.
Those who visit should
make the most of their
time in this ancient city
that has been sitting on
the Dalmatian Coast for
some 1,300 years.
This historic port was
named a UNESCO World
Heritage Site in 1979.
Extensive restoration
efforts began shortly
after the Serbian War. You
can visit sites such as the
Dominican and Francis-
can monasteries, Rector's
Palace and Dubrovnik
Cathedral.
Marbled paved squares
and fountains are just a
few of the many-antiqui-
ties that remain as they
were years ago.
Surrounded by 10th
century walls, Dubrovnik
is a must see for the
historian and art lover
alike..This is one of the
most beautiful towns in
Europe. It has every-
thing: A magnificent
natural setting, an old
town unspoiled by
development and lively
cultural life.
Perhaps more than
anything, it has a mys-
tique that not even
Venice can rival.
Whether traveling by
sea or touring Croatia by
car, you are guaranteed
spectacular scenery and
breathtaking views.
The translucent Adriat-
ic Sea, and picturesque
towns, are surrounded by
more than 1,000 islands
anchored offshore. Most
of these islands are
uninhabited, which
makes them ideal for
those who prefer to be
away from crowds.

The most popular is
Hvar (pronounced
hwah)r), which has a long
and fascinating history
itself.
There is so much to see
and do in Croatia.
If taking a cruise, you
may want to schedule a
pre- (or post-) stay in
Dubrovnik.
Traveling with a tour.
company will give you a
more in-depth look at
the scenery.
More travel companies
are offering tours that
include Croatia.
Globus Vacations, for
example, offers a reason-'
ably priced tour that
includes Italy and Croat-
ia, with visits to Rome,
Florence, Venice, Zadar,
Split, Dubrovnik, Plitvice
National Park and Zagreb
(capitol city).
The Orient Lines' cruise
ship Marco Polo offers an
itinerary that includes
ports of call in three
Croatian ports along the
Dalmation Coast.
Incidentally, Marco
Polo was born on the
Croate Island of Kublic.


This must see country
offers so much in its
splendor you may want
to make it part of your
next trip to Europe. You
will not be disappointed.

Ms. Economou was sur-
prised to learn she was
recognized as the officer

trict.
"I honestly never
thought it would hap-

said. "I don't do what I do

Deputy Fred Fernandez
was honored for his work
with the St. Lucie County
Sheriff's Office. He is a
traffic deputy and a-


motorcycle trainer for the
sheriff's office, as well as

Sheriff Ken Mascara said.
"Deputy Fernandez

a role model."
In 2006, Deputy Fer-
nandez made 1,835 traf-
fic stops, resulting in
1,233 citations. He also
investigated 227 traffic
crashes. Deputy Fernan-
dez said it was nice to
receive the recognition,
but he does his job for


more than accolades.
"I believe in what I do,"
Deputy Hernandez said.
"I work a lot of accidents
and 85 percent of the
time it is speed related. I
make stops and issue
citations to make people
think about their
speeds."
Officer Michael Colton

Mental Health Court
graduates second
class

The St. Lucie County
Court System held its
second Mental Health
Court graduation April 17.
In lieu of jail time, the
program offers court
supervision and services to
mentally ill offenders.
"The tragic consequence
of our under-funded
health system is the reason
for the increasing number
of individuals with mental
illnesses and addiction
disorders being incarcerat-
ed in Florida's jails," said


Judge" Cynthia L. Cox, who
presides over the court.
"Correctional facilities are
ill-equipped to provide the
treatment that these
people need. Many reenter
the community with the
same illnesses prior to
being jailed and are
constantly rearrested."
The cost in wasted lives,
impact on public safety
and growing costs to
taxpayers made it a
priority for the creation of
the court, she said.
The first Mental Health
Court graduation was held
Dec. 12, 2006, with 12

From page A2


call the wireless user back
to see if there is indeed an
emergency.
Then came Phase II
technology, which allows
call takers to receive both
the wireless caller's phone
number and location
information.
But all of this doesn't
always work, Ms. Pate
said.
Aside from the inability
to pinpoint a wireless
caller's exact location, cel-
lular calls from Martin
County, especially near
the beaches and the coun-
ty line, are often routed to
St. Lucie dispatchers, Mr.
Reynolds said. Dispatch-
ers have to transfer them
to the correct 911 center,
which could mean wasting
valuable response sec-
onds.
Officials at the national
level are now working on
what's being referred to as
Next Generation 911,
which will better handle
forms of communication
that are already in com-
mon 'use, such as cell
phones, Internet-based
calls, text messages and
cell phone photos.
Even if that system is
perfected, both Ms. Pate
and Mr.' Reynolds said
,people should still keep a
landline plugged in at
home.
"Even if you don't have
phone service, you can
plug a phone into the line
and still dial 911," Ms. Pate
said. "If you have small
children, it's imperative. If
someone's breaking into


your house and your cell
phone is dead, you can
call 911, and you don't
have to pay for it. If it's not
. working, you need to get
hold of Bell South and
they will come fix it."
Cell phones without a,
service provider can also
dial 911, provided the bat-
tery is charged.

roots effort to get the
word out to all the high
schools in the tri-county
area.
"We expect to see a lot
of new audience mem-
bers for this show, some
of whom will hopefully
become long-time
patrons, volunteers or
even future performers.
Over the past few years we
have demonstrated our
support for teens by
awarding scholarships to
area high school students
who participate either on
or off our stage," she says.
Written and composed
by Jason Robert Brown,
The Last Five Years tells
the story of a couple in
their twenties struggling
to make their relationship
work. What makes the
musical both unique and
intriguing is that the male
tells his version of the
story from beginning to
the end, but the female
tells hers from the end of
the relationship back to
the beginning all
through song.
The two characters are
only on stage together
once, when they meet in


the middle for their wed-
ding ceremony.
"The community has
seen plenty of big-cast,
big-number teen shows
around town," said Mar-
tin County High School
student director Ross
Alagna, "But the board
understood that students
can also handle deeper,
more comprehensive
character development
and musical challenges."
Another positive factor
that helped sell the show
to Barn board members
was the vast experience of
the two young actors
involved. The female
character Cathy is played
by Lincoln Park Acade-
my's Megan Moran, who
first appeared on the Barn
stage when she was eight.
She was familiar to cur-
rent board members
thanks to her role in last
year's hit Summer of '42.
Moran recently won the
teen category of The
Maltz Theatre's Palm
Beach Idol contest, and
was also a semi-finalist on
CBS's The Early Show's
"Living Room Live" series.
Port St. Lucie High
School's Robert Johnston,


who plays the male ch4r-
acter, Jamie, already has
an impressive list of lead-
ing musical roles under
his belt. Among the many
are Tevye in Fiddler Qn
The Roof, the Innkeeper
in Les Miserables,
Kenicky in Grease (with
Moran his Rizzo) and
Horton in Suessical The
Musical.
Brown's strong writing
has found a solid follow-'
ing among musical the-
atre fans, Variety maga-
zine had this to say about
The Last Five Years:
"Short, bittersweet and
nearly perfect, Brown has
come up with a winning-
combination of music
and book."
"The Last .Five Years"
opens April 20 at the Barn
Theatre, 2400 S.E. Ocean
Blvd., in Stuart, and runs
through April22.
Showtimes are 2 and 8
p.m. Tickets are $10 for
students and $15 for
adults.
Call (772) 287-4884 for
more information.
The box office is open
Monday through Saturday
from noon to 4 p.m.

Online phishers trying to


lure unsuspecting users


I A s I went through my
e-mail this morning,
deleting all the spam
one e-mail at a time) I
couldn't help but notice the
number of "phishing" e-
mails I was getting.
: It seemed like just about
-every day I get one or two of
these e-mails, and it makes
ime wonder just how many
people out there fall for it
'and end up getting
scammed.
The practice of phishing
is when someone out there,
in cyberspace, constructs
an e-mail to look like it's
coming from a legitimate
source (usually a bank Web
.site) when it's not. Most of
the time, these e-mails will
tell you that (for one reason
or another) you need to
confirm your username
and password in order to
Keep your account open. If
you don't, they say you run
the risk of having your
account closed. They
usually will include a link to
follow and the page that the
link brings you to looks
exactly like what you would
expect were you to go to the
"actual (bank's) Web site.
Enter your user name and
password and you can find
your account drained in
minutes
So, what is one to do to
,keep from getting
scammed like this?
Well, to answer this
question I'm looking at
some of the phishing bait e-
mails I have received over
the last few months (yes, for
some strange reason I've
,been collecting them).
One reoccurring theme
that I see is a sense of
.urgency. Most of the e-
mails will have the original
bank (or other organiza-
tion's logo) making it look
'like it is from a legitimate
source, but it will contain
an urgent message. Follow-
ing are two examples.
Example 1: "In order to be
prepared for the smart card
upgrade on Visa and
-MasterCard debit and
credit cards and to avoid
'problems with our ATM
'services, we have recently
introduced additional
security measures and
upgraded our software.
, "The security upgrade
will be effective immediate-
ly and requires our cus-


.\


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This

tomers to update their ATM
card information. Please
update your information by
following the link given
below."
This is to generate a sense
of urgency. In this case, if
you don't follow the link,
you run the risk of having
your card stop working due
to "upgraded software and
security measures."
Example 2: "This is your
final warning about the
safety of your account. If
you do not update your
billing information your
access on will be restricted
and the user deleted."
The reason to do this
might include:
A recent change in your
personal information (i.e.
change of address).
Submitting invalid
information during the
initial sign up process.
* An inability to accurate-
ly verify your selected
option of payment due an
internal error within their
processors.
* Please update your
profile in order to restore
your online access.
Then they include a link
for you to follow to submit
the required information.
What makes these two
examples easy to spot is the
sense of urgency.
If you ever get an e-mail
saying an account you have

with some institution is in
danger of getting cut off
unless you update your
information online, a bell
should go off in your head.
No legitimate institution
is going to contact you over
e-mail to update your
account.
If your account were in
jeopardy, you would receive
a phone call or a postal
message, not an e-mail.
Another clue that you are
looking at a fake?
Grammatical and
spelling errors are also a
sure sign that the message
is a fake.
Another thing you can do
is actually click the link they
want you to. Don't fill out
any information of course,
but click the link and see
what the actual address is
when the page opens. You
will likely see that the
address is either a raw IP.
address or will have your
bank name embedded in
some other domain name
(like http://your_bank.oth-
erdomain.com) a sure sign
of a fake.
When performing this
test however, it's important
to check the link they want
. you to click to enter your
information.
Some of the phishing e-
mails I've gotten have other
links to the actual bank's
privacy statements and
what not. Checking those
links may lead you to
believe the e-mail is legit
when it's not. Again it's the
link that they want you to
follow that will have the
bogus address.
The bottom line is to
never ever respond to an e-
mail asking confirm your
information online.
If you have doubts and
think that the e-mail may
actually be legit, pick up the
phone and call the bank.

Guru's Money-
Saving Tips
When you want pork

To Your Health
Pork. is considered,
"the other white meat."
has no more fat than
chicken thigh.


Today's column will give
you my family's Easter
noodle pie and then it's all
about pork, "the other
white meat."
Pork is considered a low-
fat meat. Roast loin of
pork, boneless pork roast
and narrow boneless pork
tenderloin has no more fat
than a chicken thigh.
When I say pork, am I
talking about ribs or
sausage? Of course not.
But you already knew that.
Loin of pork is often on
sale. Did you ever notice
how much more expensive
pork chops are compared
to a loin of pork? I wonder
where those chops came
from?
Aha, I know, from a pork
loin. If you want chops,
buy a loin of pork and ask
the butcher to cut it into
chops. The price doesn't
change.
If you want double pork
chops to stuff, the price is
even higher, but if you ask
the butcher to cut double
chops from a loin, the
price stays the same.
A narrow, bonelesspork
tenderloin (long, slender
piece of meat usually in a
Cryovac package) is the
lowest-fat cut of pork

followed by a boneless
pork loin.
Buy a boneless pork loin
when it's on sale and ask
the butcher to cut it up
Into roasts or chops. You
can do it yourself if you
buy a kitchen scale that
goes up to 10 pounds. You
can also make pork cutlets.
The problem I have
found with a (bone in)
pork loin is the way they
hack the bones apart at
the bottom of the roast,
supposedly to facilitate
easy slicing when the roast
is done. It never works,
and you find yourself
ruining the roast.
Make your life easier; ask
the butcher to do three
things for you.
Trim most of the fat.
Cut the roast into
chops.
Tie it back up so it
looks like the original.
When the meat is done,
simply cut the strings and
your roast is already sliced.
If you've tried roasting a
pork tenderloin before,
you have found it cannot
be cooked by using
conventional methods
without overcooking. And
makinggravy is a near
impossibility.
I've come up with a fool-
proof, fast method. Dinner
on the table in less than 30
minutes.
Also, there is nothing


better than 15-or 16-bean
soup, especially on a chilly
day. The beans come in a
plastic package, but one
brand has a wonderfully
different recipe that you
must have.
You can add a ham bone,
chunks of ham, a smoked
turkey leg or low-fat
smoked sausages,
chopped. A ham hock,
although high fat can also
be used.
Vegetarian style is also
good, just don't use the
enclosed packet of ham
seasoning.
Enjoy, see you next week!

water. Add meat. Bring to a
boil and simmer uncov-
ered 2-1/2 to 3 hours,
stirring occasionally.
Add onion, tomatoes,
chili powder, juice and
garlic.
Add salt and pepper to
taste. Simmer for 30
minutes or until all is
tender.

PASTERIA
(ITALIAN NOODLE
PIE)
This recipe was a tradi-
tional Easter Saturday
addition when mom was
growing up.
My cousins have altered
some ingredients. The
recipe requires Crisco
shortening, which has
been around since 1911.
Before that time lard was
used.

1 pound angel hair pasta
12 eggs
3/4 cup grated Pecorino
Romano cheese
Pepper to taste
Crisco shortening
Grease a 9- x 12-inch
baking pan. Boil noodles
in lightly salted water until
al dente. Drain and place
in pan.
Beat remaining ingredi-
ents together, and mix into
noodles. Dab with several '
tablespoons Crisco. Bake
at 350 degrees E for one
hour until set and top is a
crusty golden brown.
Cut,in squares and serve
warm.

LOIN OF PORK
SERVES 4
2-1/2 to 3 pounds pork
loin roast, boneless or


bone-in
Garlic'powder
Salt and pepper
Ground marjoram
(optional)

Rub meat all over with a
sprinkling of the spices.
Roast in a pan on a rack
in a 325-degree E oven,
allowing 35 minutes per
pound. If you prefer your
pork slightly pink, shorten
cooking time to 30 min-
utes a pound.
When roast is done,
remove to a platter and
prepare the gravy.
Add about 1/2 cup water
to pan and heat, scraping
up all browned drippings.
Pour into saucepan,
defatting with ice cubes.
When chilled, remove
remaining cubes and fat
with a slotted spoon.
. Thicken gravy with a
little flour and water
shaken together in a jar.
If necessary, season with
powdered bullion and add
mote color with Gravy


Master.
For a boneless roast, slice
thin. Serve with apple-
sauce.

NARROW BONELESS
PORK ROAST
Time the roast according
to size.
A 2-1/4 pound narrow
roast will feed five gener-
ously.
You must use a metal,
not a glass, roasting pan.
The glass will crack at the
temperature we will be
using.
Sprinkle roast with salt,
pepper and garlic powder.
Broil meat on all sides
until it is nice and dark
brown. This procedure will
seal in the juices and give
you a wonderful base for a
gravy.
Preheat oven to 425-
degrees E Roast meat for
12 to 13 minutes a pound.
Remove to serving platter
and prepare gravy as
directed in Loin of Pork
recipe.

The journey toward it
comes when we have
exhausted our earthly
means and are driven to
find a better way of life.
The intellectual mind is
resistant to change. It
wants to keep everything
the same. It doesn't like
to give up control.,
Sometimes it would
rather suffer than
change.
The starting point of
finding new meaning of
life is to begin the
process of surrender and
listen and follow the
heart, not the head.
Listen to your intuition.
It's there to help us when
we are open to hearing
and trusting it.
A happy heart is a
healthy heart. How
happy are you? Some
people say to me, "When
I follow my heart it gets
me in trouble."
MIy answer: "It's never
wrong to follow your
heart. When you are
doing things that make
you happy, you aren't as
accessible to others and
they sometimes scream
at you to get you back to
circling their orbit first."
You can tell when you
are beginning to open up
and grow by the reac-
tions you get from those
around you.
People who love you
will encourage you to
find yourself. Those
using you will try to
squash it.
When roots begin to
grow in the heart, we
begin to find the priori-
ties-and values that make
us happy. Then, as if by
magic, we begin to find
increased power, passion
and purpose.
You will begin to see the
old fear in the mind
being replaced by more
loving thoughts of
yourself and others.

Some hard facts about gallstones


A close friend of mine
recently had gall
ladder surgery.
The experience remind-
ed me of how complex the
body is and of how many
things can go wrong.
Fortunately for most of
us, they don't.
The gall bladder is a
small, pear-shaped organ
in the abdomen. It stores,
bile, a liquid produced in
the liver that helps break
down fats in he diet and
aid in digestion. When bile
is needed, the gall bladder
squeezes it out into the
intestinal tract, where it
mixes with food.
Sometimes, bile hardens
into pieces that resemble
stones, which is why they
are called gallstones. .
Common gallstones are
made up of hardened
cholesterol.
They may be very small
or as large as a golf ball.
They can block the
normal flow of bile and
cause inflammation and
infection.
Also, they can be
extremely painful, as my
friend found out.
There are a number of
risk factors that contribute
to the creation of gall-
stones. Some we can
control, and some we can't.
Obesity is a major risk
factor for gallstones,
especially in women.



Compute
From page B7
Or (if it's an online
merchant) go to the Web
site without clicking the
link in the e-mail) ask them
directly (you should be able
to find a "contact us" link
that will allow you to send
them a message and ask
them if the e-mail you got
was legit.
My bet would be no.
Just remember this
simple rule of thumb: you


There are a number of risk factors that con-
tribute to the creation of gallstones. Some we
can control, and some we can't.


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well
Estrogen: Whether
from pregnancy, hormone
replacement therapy or
birth control pills, excess
estrogen seems to increase
cholesterol levels in bile
and decrease gall bladder
movement, which may
lead to gallstones.
Ethnicity: Native
Americans have the
highest rate of gallstones in
the United States because
of a genetic predisposition
to secrete high levels of
cholesterol in bile. Mexi-
can-Americans also have a
high rate of gallstones.
*Gender: Women, ages
20-60, are twice as likely to
develop gallstones than
men.
* Age: People older than
60 are more likely to
develop gallstones.
* Cholesterol-lowering
drugs: These drugs lower
cholesterol levels in the


blood, but may increase
the amount of cholesterol
secreted in bile.
* Diabetes: Diabetics
usually have high levels of
fatty acids called triglyc-
erides, which increase the
risk of gallstones.
* Rapid weight loss and
yo-yo dieting: Losing
weight too quickly causes
the liver to secrete extra
cholesterol into bile.
* Fasting: Fasting
decreases gall bladder
movement, causing bile to
become over-concentrat-
ed with cholesterol.
My friend's problem
began with pain in the
upper abdomen that, over
time, became sharper,
lasted longer and radiated
under the shoulder and
through to her back.
The pain was severe
enough to.keep her up at
night. It was frightening.
She often had attacks after
eating and was uncertain
what she could and could
not eat. She lived in fear of
a repetition of the pain.
The symptoms are
similar to those for heart
attack, ulcer, hepatitis,
appendicitis and other
illnesses, so it's important


to seek treatment and get
an accurate diagnosis.
She went to see her
family doctor, who sent
her for an ultrasound, the
most sensitive and specific
test for gallstones.
When the test confirmed
that the problem was her
gall bladder, her physician
referred her to a surgeon.
In my friend's case, the
surgery was performed
laparascopically, through a
small incision.
Her gall bladder was
removed and she was able
to return to work about 10
days later. Most impor-
tantly, she doesn't suffer
from the kind of pain she
had and doesn't live with
the constant fear of
recurrence and even
complications.
If you're having any kind
of pain, talk to your doctor.
If it's abdominal or chest
pains, do it now.

How to communicate


effectively with a car dealer


EARL STEWART
On Cars


As many of you know, I
S communicate
. Directly with my
customers, some would say
to a fault. I don't have a
secretary or administrative
assistant.
My dealership's tele-
phone receptionist never
asks "who's calling" or "may
I ask the nature of your
call?" She puts my calls
(and the calls to all my
employees) right through.
If I am not in my office, she
puts them through auto-
matically to my cell phone,
seven days a week. I also
have four red phones in
four locations of my
dealership: the showroom
floor by the receptionist,
the service customer
waiting lounge, outdoors in
the service drive and in the
body shop waiting lounge.
Each phone has a picture
of me with the message,
"Customer hotline to Earl
Stewart. The buck stops
here. Have we not exceed-
ed your expectations?
Please let me know. Simply
pick up the receiver and
wait for me to answer."
As if all this isn't enough,
I put my home telephone
number and cell phone
number on my business
cards and pass them out to
my new customers at our
bi-monthly new owners
dinners.
I say all this, not to brag
(or maybe just a little). It
might surprise you that I
am not deluged with
phone calls. I get quite a

few, but considering I sell
between 400 and500 cars a
month and service thou-
sands each month, I doubt
if I average more that 25
calls per day.
Most of them are posi-
tive, complimentary calls. I
believe one reason for this
is that my employees are
motivated to work harder
to satisfy my customers
because they know if they
don't I'm going to hear
about it very quickly.
Another reason is that my
. customers are remarkably
respectful of the fact that
they can call me and do not
take advantage of it.
Frankly, my wife, Nancy,
was very nervous about
this when I first started
passing out my business
card with my home tele-
phone number. Would you
believe that I don't get
more than five or six home
calls a week? When you
extend your trust to people,
they almost always respect

that and do not take
advantage.
Of course, you are not
going to find a lot of car
dealers who do what I do.
But here is how you can
improve your communica-
tions in other ways that will
allow you to get problems
solved and promises kept.
Always ask for the
business card of every
person you deal with. If
they don't have a card, be
sure to get their name. This
improves your service right
away, because the person is
no longer anonymous.
Ask the person for his cell
phone number. There was
a time when it was consid-
ered wrong to call someone
on a cell phone, but that
was before cell phone rates
became so cheap and cell
phones became universal.
If this is a critical person
you are dealing with, ask
for his home telephone
number too. Here is a little
trick that I use when I do
this. I always start out by
giving them my cell phone
and my home phone
number. Then I say, "and
may I have yours?" I can't
remember ever having
been refused. If someone
you are doing business
with refuses to give you his
cell or home phone
number, maybe you should
wonder why.
Also, make it a point to be
introduced to this person's
manager. Get the manag-
er's business card and as
many contact numbers as
he is willing to share with
you.
When you do this, you
have put the salesman or
service advisor on notice
that if he doesn't return
your phone calls, you will
be calling his boss.
If you really want to have
an edge, ask to meet the
general manager and/or
owner of the dealership.
Get his telephone num-
bers. Now you will have
everybody's attention
when you come into the
dealership to transact
business.
If you are a "computer
person," collect e-mail
addresses from everybody
you deal with. E-mail is not
as timely as telephone, but
it has an advantage over
the telephone because it is
"on the record."
When you make a
request of a person by e-
mail, he can't deny it
because you have a copy of
the message. I know that
with Microsoft Outlook e-
mail I get acknowledge-
ment every time somebody
opens an e-mail that I sent
them.
Furthermore, you can
copy as many people as
you like with an e-mail. You
can send copies the
primary recipient knows
about, or make blind
copies that he can't tell
were sent.
Someone is a lot more
likely to act on your request
when he knows that it is a
matter of record and his
boss was copied with an e-
mail.
If you can force yourself
into the habit ofgetting
names, telephone numbers
and e-mail addresses from
everybody you deal with
and their managers,
conducting business with
your car dealer (or any
other business) will be
much more smooth and
trouble free.

Be on lookout for Africanized bees


One of the sure signs
of summer is the
sight of honeybees
fluttering from flower to
flower in search of sweet
nectar that is needed for
the bees to produce honey.
More often than not,
these small creatures
normally mind their own
business at hand.
This scenario is slowly
beginning to change.
With the introduction of
Africanized bees, you no
longer can assume that the
bee you see is going to
leave you alone.
The problem is that only
a bee expert can tell the
difference between an
ordinary honeybee and
one that is Africanized.
Killer bees are slightly
smaller than their honey-
bee counterparts.
Similar to the imported
fire ant, Africanized
honeybees were brought
to our country by accident.
The bees are cousins of
bees that were imported to
South America in an
attempt to breed more
efficient honeybees that
are better adapted to a
tropical climate.
This was in 1957.
The problems began to
mount when the bees
began multiplying much
faster then expected.
Some of these bees
escaped from their intend-
ed area and the migration
began.
Killer bees acquired their
name because they tend to
be more aggressive than
honeybees.
They will chase down
people or animals for long
distances, and in much
larger numbers, than
honeybees.
You can initiate an attack
by simply getting into the
bees' territory. You do not
have to disturb the hive in
order to get attacked. This
is what makes them so
dangerous.
We now know that the
bees have arrived in our
area. '
If you see a honeybee,
assume it might be a killer
bee and stay clear of its
path.
These bees can make
hives in almost any,
structure, so be aware of
large numbers of bees
coming and going out of
trees, walls or virtually any
object that has a hollow
area.
Normally, a few bees
around your flowers doing


their normal routine will
generally not be a prob-
lem. Remember that bees
are necessary to pollinate
flowers, fruits and vegeta-
bles.
In the unlikely event you
are under attack from a
swarm of bees, run and
find shelter as soon as
possible.
When you are in a safe
area, away from the bees,
determine if you need
medical attention. If you
have been stung several
times, look for symptoms
such as breathing difficul-
ties and seek medical
attention immediately.
Local pain and some
swelling is a normal
occurrence and does not
always require medical
attention. If you have
known allergies to bee
stings, seek medical
attention no matter what.
Also, if you suspect you
have encountered killer
bee activity, notify authori-
ties immediately.

Mexican heather

One of my favorite plants
to grow in the summer
months is the Mexican
heather.
These plants boast
colorful lavender, purple
or white flowers. They do
well in summer and -
winter,, and in full sun and
partial shade. They will
tolerate temperatures as
low as 28 degrees.
Even if they freeze to the
ground, there is a chance
they will grow back.
They have excellent heat
tolerance, but do best with
. regular watering. They can
grow to be 3-feet tall, .but
can be easily trimmed to
fit your needs.
They can be propagated


from plant cuttings in the
summer and also can be
grown from seed.
The most common
variety in retail stores is
the Allyson, which has
purple flowers.
I also use heather in my
bedding area. The combi-
nation of flowers makes a
great contrast of color in a
flowerbed and you have.
the advantage of using
flowers that tolerate our
intense heat.
You can add some Dusty
Miller to the mix for a real
treat. The silver-white
colored leaves can really
add to the flower mix for a
picture perfect garden.

Water restrictions

As an added note, water
restrictions will soon be in
effect. Please follow the
schedule and plan your
watering accordingly.
Most plants will do well
on an every other day
watering schedule if they
are watered properly.


We all need to do our
part in conserving water,
for our future, as well as
our children's, and grand-
children's futures.

Free family history help


Genealogy is the
process of hunting
down your ancestors,
a hobby that can quickly
turn in to a passion. The
genealogy bug bit me when
my mother began tracing
her family history soon after
my father died. My mother
and I took many genealogy
trips in the U.S. and Canada
together, and eventually to
Ireland..A bookkeeper by
training, my mother entered
every scrap of information,

with its source, into family
group sheets. Today, with
genealogy software and the
Internet, you don't have to
wait until you have the time
or the money to travel.
If you think you're too
busy with life here and now
to research those ancestors
you've always longed to
know more about, think
again. Ancestor hunting has
never been easier or
cheaper. With public library
access to Ancestry.com and
Heritage Quest, these
websites provide ancestor
hunting through census and
other historical records.
Here is an easy way to get
you started on your search,
without taking up enor-
mous amounts of time,
money or energy.
All you need is your
memory, a willingness to
think about the past and a
pedigree chart. There are a
number of Internet websites
that provide free forms you
can download.
Ancestry.com provides
numerous forms to down-
load at
http://www.ancestry.com/t
rees/charts/ancchart.aspx.
The pedigree or ancestral
chart is a one-page chart
that begins on the left-hand
side with you. Moving to the
right, there is a place for
your father and mother; still
moving right, there are four
places for your father's
parents and mother's'
parents, and on the far right,
eight places for your father's
parents' parents and
mother's parents' parents.
Don't give up if you can't
complete the chart. On the
form enter as much infor-
mation as you know, or
think you know. When
you're not sure, place a
question mark after what
you think, but aren't sure
about. There are places for
name (enter the maiden or
birth name of the females),
place and date of birth,
place and date of marriage,
and place and date of death
for each individual.
Once you've completed
what you know or think, you
might want to call someone
in the family who's a
generation or two older
than you. Their memories
are longer and perhaps

some information they
remember may be different
from what you remember.
Record their information
when it differs from yours.
Don't worry about making
the chart neat and pretty.
That comes later when you
validate the information,
with birth, marriage and
death certificates and
census and other records.
Your next step is to get
some help from people who
are experienced in genealo-
gy researching and that help
is free, and easily available.
Treasure Coast Genealogical
Society (TCGS) members
provide free family history
research every Tuesday at
the St. Lucie County Public
Library's downtown Fort
Pierce branch. Volunteers
usually work from about 9

later, and can be available at
other times by appoint-

Enlarge your vision


P roverbs 29:18a says:
"Where there is no
vision, the people
perish." Vision is the source
of hope and life!
God gave us many gifts;
the most precious is his very
own son Jesus, who brought
us back into fellowship with
him.
With that gift wrapped
and delivered, God desired
to give us, his children, ever
more. God wanted to equip
and empower us for suc-
cess, so he gave us vision.
There is a difference
between sight and vision.
Sight is a function of the
eyes. Vision is a function of
the heart. Eyes that look are
common, but eyes that see
are rare.
Let us unpack that idea,
and ask what can we learn
from this concept. We look
with our physical eyes, but
we see with our spiritual
eyes.
Our physical eyes take in
four million bytes of infor-
mation every second. That's
amazing. They give us
information. Our spiritual
eyes take in what is in the
mind of God. They give us
revelation. That's even more
amazing.

noble and noteworthy.
Because of the inspiring
power and mysterious
source called vision,
visionary leaders developed
ancient and modern
civilizations.
The canvas of history was
painted with evidence of the
creative, tradition-defying
force of vision.
Social, economic, archi-
tectural, medical, scientific
and political achievement
and advancements owe
their conception and
emergence to the power of
vision.
This powerful force of
vision starts in one person,
inspired by the brightest
person in our universe,
God's Holy Spirit. Here's the
exciting part, that one
person can be you. ,
Matthew 9:16-17 explains
a two thousand-year-old
concept that is still true
today. The essence of the
verse is this; do not pour


new wine into all wineskins.
If you do, the old wineskins
will burst, and the wine will
spill. Instead, pour new
wine into new wineskins
and the wine and the
wineskins will be preserved.
In biblical times, wine was
not kept in glass bottles, but
in goatskins, sewn around
the edges, to form water-
tight bags.
New wine expanded as it
fermented, and stretched
the new wineskins. However
new wine that was poured
into old wineskins, expand-
ed and broke open the old
wineskins.
When Jesus wanted to
encourage his followers to
enlarge their vision, he
cautioned them about
putting new wine int6 old
wineskins. Jesus was saying
that you couldn't have a
larger life, with restricted
attitudes and concepts. That
message is still relevant
today.
Here's the good news; God
wants to fill your life with
"new wine!" He wants to fill
you with his Holy Spirit. God
has a wonderful, successful
plan for your life.
He wants to give you new
wineskins, new positive
attitudes and concepts, in
which to contain the new
wine.
Remember, with God, all
things are possible. Start
thinking bigger. Enlarge
your vision, and allow God
to remove the old negative
mindset that holds you back
from God's best for your life.
Pull up your stakes, pack
your tent, gather your


belongings, and start
moving forward. Ask God to
open your spiritual eyes.
In Isaiah 43:19 God speaks
through the prophet Isaiah,
to his chosen people, Israel.
God intended the message
for us as well. He said this,
"See, I am doing a new
thing! Now it springs up; do
you perceive it? I am making
a way in the desert, and
streams in the wasteland."
God wants to do a new
thing in you life today! It
pleases God to promote
you; He wants to bring
increase into every area of
your life.
But notice, what God asks,
"Do you perceive it?" In
other words are you making
room for God's blessings in
your own thinking?
Are you seeing your
increase of provision with
your spiritual eyes? Remem-
ber, vision is a function of
the heart, we cannot expect
to see with our spiritual eyes
without having an intimate
relationship with God
through Christ.
Your future is not ahead of
you, it lies within you. Your
God-given vision deter-
mines your destiny Ask God
to open your spiritual eyes
today
In God's kingdom we
receive by giving. He wants
to bless you, so you can be a
blessing to others.

Local dance, karate teams Heat up Miami


By MATTHEW DEWHURST
Sports writer
MIAMI Members of Legacy
Dance Team and Kaizen Karate of
Port St. Lucie performed before
the Miami Heat and Indiana
pacers games on April 13 at
American Airlines Arena in
Miami.
It was the team's second time
performing before a Heat game in
as many years, and, as expected,
they were well received by a
crowd that numbered in the
thousands.
"I tell them all the time that this


is a lifetime experience. This is
something they are going to talk
about this for the rest of their
life," said Tom Bogolawski, Sensei
at Kaizen Karate. "They're going
to be able to say, 'you know I
performed on the floor of the
champion Miami Heat.' It's just
something they will talk about
forever with their friends."
It was the second time that the
two teams, who share a facility in
Port St. Lucie, performed before a
Heat game, and they plan on
coming back next year as well.
Twenty-five members of Kaizen
performed a four-minute pro-


gram, displaying open form and
traditional styles of GojuRyu.
before the girls of Legacy took
over the floor.
Legacy Dance Team director
Dawn Nabors has brought her
teams' to Miami on four other
occasions, and when she started
Legacy two years ago, performing'
at American Airlines Arena was
something she wanted to keep
going.

LaSalle


$Y MATTHEW DEWHURST
Sports writer
A recent weekend
recruiting visit to Philadel-
phia turned into a week-
long trip for Brandon Berry
when he was trapped at
LaSalle University during a
snowstorm ripped through
the Mid-Atlantic.
;For some South Florida
recruits, the cold tempera-
tiures and snow might have
been a deterrent, for Berry
it was the icing on the cake.
-On April 13, Berry signed
a letter of intent to play
football for the Division I-
AA Explorers next fall.
The school's high
academic standards and
revived football program
wjre big factors, in Berry's
decision, but it was the St.
LucieWest Centennial's
flist snowfall that made the
largest impact.
. "That's was fun, I got the
whole Philly thing,"'said
Berry. 'Anything's better
than Lake Placid in the
heat and full pads."
'The 6-foot, 260-pound
lineman anchored the
Eagles' offensive line in his
senior season and plans on
doing the same at La Salle
for the next four years. The
school plans on keeping
hfm at his familiar center
position.
-Two months ago, Berry
went untouched on
*national signing day,
watching teammate Max
Aexandre sign with James
Madison University, and
opponents he dominated


during the season make
commitments to other big-
name programs.
But Berry stayed com-
posed and confident that
he would eventually find
his place on the roster of
the right program for him.
After his trip to the City of
Brotherly Love, he knew
had found his new home.
"Everybody's dream is to
sign on national signing
day," said Berry. "But I
talked to my coaches and
parents and they reassured
me that signing on signing
day wasn't a big issue.
Colleges will be there and
they are going to want you
and when you sign it will
be a big deal. Did I believe
them at that time? No. But,
obviously it was true."
Berry, who maintains a
3.85 grade point average,
said signing his letter of
intent was a "dream come
true," and that he was
extremely excited to get
started training for next
fall. Foot speed and muscle
are two things that he
knows he will have to
improve this summer if he
plans on competing for
playing time at La Salle his
freshman year. At 260
pounds, he knows he must
gain more weight while
becoming lean to increase
his speed.
He believes that the
same hard work and
dedication he learned
while playing for Centen-

national champions, as
well as the Florida state
champions.
"You work so hard and
you're so stressed out the
whole season because
you want to do your best
and if you mess up you
beat yourself up about it
because you only want to
do the best for your
team," said co-captain
Jessica Alverez of Port St.
Lucie. "And just to end
the season with a fun
thing, it's nice. It's nice to
have that last final
bonding moment with
my team."
Alverez, who will
graduate from Lincoln


Park Academy this
spring, said that she has
enjoyed her time with
Legacy competing on a
national level and that
she can't wait to come
back and watch her
teammates perform in
Miami in 2008
Nabors plans on having
her team back in Miami
next year.
"I think it's great for
them, it makes them feel
special," said Nabors. "It
gives them their five
minutes of fame and they
feel like they're super-
stars. It's especially good
for them after the long
competition season to go
out and just have fun."
First year dance team
member Jessica Alessan-
drini said that the experi-
ence was exciting and she

can't wait to compete

Alessandrini, 17, is a.
Student at Indian River
Community College and
was a cheerleader at Port
St. Lucie High School.
Being a member of a
nationally recognized
dance team was great,
but that beingtable to


show off her stuff at a
Miami Heat game was a
rush.
"It was pretty crazy. I
thought it was going to be
a little more nerve-
racking but it wasn't that
much," she said. "It was
really cool. Who doesn't
love the Miami Heat,
right?"

What do you do when Viagra, Levitra, or Cialis
doesn't work?
If you are one of the nearly 6 million men with erectile dysfunction for whom pills CO
don't work, learn how the Internal Penile Pump restores normal sexual function.


Oral medications such as Viagra,
Levitra, and Cialis are successful in
restoring erections for 65% of the 20
million American men who are affected
by erectile dysfunction (ED). However,
a third of all those suffering from ED
require a more advanced treatment
option: fewer than 50% of men with
diabetes and

of men after "The Internal P

The Internal Penile Pump is cur-
rently the best option for men who do
not respond to medication. American
Medical Systems is the leading manu-
facturer of the internal pump. We have a
list of urologists who are recognized as a
center of excellence for this procedure in
the United States, performing hundreds
of Penile Pump insertions a year.
A SIMPLE PROCEDURE TO GET
BACK A LIFETIME OF PLEASURE.
The Internal Penile Pump is an
inflatable, water-filled device. During
the course of a 45 minute outpatient pro-
cedure, the pump is inserted through a


medic


onerinch opening in the scrotal sac. By
squeezing the pump (which is contained
completely within the scrotum), for
approximately a minute, fluid is pumped
into the penis, resulting in a long lasting
erection. Toreturn the penis to its flac-
cid state, simply press and hold down
the pump. Once inserted, there is no
maintenance
required for the

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

riay, Apr. U, AW.J


Time creeps up


on all golfers


eventually


T' ime has a way of
speeding past
without us even
taking notice.
Every once in a while,
Father Time jumps in and
shows us just how quickly
it passes. Never in my life
has he shown me this
quite as well as during the
past month.
It started a few weeks
back when I attended the
ceremony to open Santa
Lucia River Club at
Ballantrae in Port St.
Lucie.
Golf's greatest player,
Jack Nicklaus, was on-
hand to cut the ribbon, hit
a ceremonial tee shot, and
:schmooze with the club's
members and us media
folk.
The Golden Bear no
longer plays competitive-
ly. By his own admission,
he tees it up only once or
'twice a month at the most.
"All these years that
-people have wanted to
play like me. Now they
do," he said. "I can't hit the
ball hard enough to keep
it in the air anymore."
The sparkle we used to
:see in his eye when an
eagle or birdie putt would
fall gracefully into the cup
is still present. It shows up
the very moment you ask
him about his latest
course designs. He lights
up just like that Sunday in
1986 at Augusta National
when he made every
possible shot on the back
nine to win his sixth, and
final, green jacket.
With the rise in capital-
ism in Eastern Europe, a
bevy of fantastic sights on
which to build a golf
course have opened up.
,He spoke of a sight where
the course will run along a
cliff that drops off into the
sea.
As we spoke I could feel
.Father Time breathing
over my shoulder.
<*, Here I was talking with
.the greatest golfer ever, a
man I watched win many,
majors and change the
game in my lifetime, and
he was speaking of
fishing, and course
design, not of hitting a
golf ball.
Before Nicklaus, there
was Arnold Palmer.
No matter how much
time passes, Arnie will
always be in our hearts
and will always be "The
King."
I can remember as a
young child roaming the'
grounds at The Masters
."collecting autographs on
.practice round Tuesdays.
Back then Palmer was
one of the favorites to win
.-the tournament and
Nicklaus was just begin-
ning his rampage on the
record book.
A couple years ago, Arnie
hung up his clubs with
regard to playing as a past
Champion every year at
Augusta. This year, he took
up the club's offer to
2 become the sixth ceremo-
: nial starter in Masters'
"i history.
SThis past Sunday, my
Father and I watched the
* replay of Arnie hitting that
Ceremonial tee shot. They
played it just before
" beginning the final
Sound's coverage.
Once again I felt Father
S.Time in the room.
It was a truly bittersweet
Moment watching Arnie
-kick off the 2007 Masters.
While it was nice to see
',such an honor bestowed
..upon our sport's most
Beloved figure, it was sad
o lo know that his game's
.-.ability to thrill crowds
- with fantastic shots and


JAMES STAMMER
Golf columnist

bravado is no longer
there.
Arnie is the reason my
father took up golf and
then passed the game,
along with all of its
virtues, to me.
The game that allows us
to, quite literally, play
until the day we die, has
passed my heroes by.
Jack is designing more
and more, Arnold has
become a ceremonial
starter and my true hero
no longer plays.
Although he was never a
great player, my father
loves this game. Now at
84, his body no longer
allows him to enjoy
playing the game.
Instead, he watches a
few rounds on television
and enjoys hearing about
my rounds on the links.
My 13-year-old son,
Paul, has a genuine
affection for the game. I
look forward to us playing
together for many years to
come. His maternal
grandfather can even join
us. It's the greatest trait of
our game.
These past few weeks
have been difficult for me.
I've realized just how
quickly time does go by
and I know that I should
have enjoyed the journey
more than I have.
I just hope and pray that
Father Time doesn't'
breathe over my son's
shoulder anytime soon
and leave him with only
the memories of our
playing days gone by.
James Stammer has been
an avid golfer and golf
enthusiast for 30 years. He

Golf Show on WPSL 1590-

"They run a college program

O'Neil was also positive
about Berry's decision to
attend La Salle, and play for
third-year head coach Tim
Miller.
"(Miller) was. one of the
first Division I coaches to
come around personally.
Usually they send their


assistant coaches," said
O'Neil. "But he came
around and I talked to him
and I asked 'what are you
looking for? What are your
requirements?' Naturally
being a good academic
school Brandon's name
popped in my head."
Despite the hoopla that
surrounded his collegiate
announcement, Berry


aged to participate in the week's
activities and get involved in helping
victims of crime.

importantly, he was going to

"To be totally honest, I

football," said Berry. "I love
football. That's the bottom
line."

It's Relay for



Life time


BY ROBIN RINKE
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE It's
time to put on your flip-
flops, grab the kids and
head over to the "Marga-
Relay-Ville: Finding a Cure
in Paradise" event.
That is the theme for this
year's 10th annual Relay For
Life of Port St. Lucie, which
raises funds for the Ameri-
can Cancer Society.
The event is scheduled to
begin at 5 p.m. on Friday,
April 27, and ends at noon
on Saturday, April 28.
The event will be held at
Tradition Field, located at
527 N.W Peacock Blvd., in
Port St. Lucie.
The relay is designed to
celebrate local cancer
survivors and remember
those who have been lost-to
the disease.
ACS volunteers Will honor
local cancer survivors at the
opening ceremonies, with
survivors and caregivers
walking the first lap of the
relay.
Members of teams
consisting of 10 to 15 people
will then begin their laps,
with one team member
walking on the track at all


times through the night.
The overnight fundraiser
is ACS's signature event, and
is held in communities all
across the country.
Rebecca Hartley, PSL
Relay for Life committee
member, said this year's
event will have new activi-
ties for the children.
"We have made the event
more family-friendly," said
Mrs. Hartley.
"We are excited about
bringing Laf-A-Lot enter-
tainment into the event this
year. Will have a bounce
house, an inflatable obstacle
course, slides, a science
tent, spin art, and the kids
can even make their own
purple pixie stick that tastes
like cherry coke."
She said this year they also
added a credit card machine
to make it easier for partici-
pants to make donations.
The local band, Sha-Boom
and also the country singer,
Journey, will be the musical
entertainment at the event.
The event is open to the
public.

ALUJJX ENLY CREATURES
pet crematory
Tammy Nicastro and Fran DiTroia love animals. For years they have support-
ed local pet rescue societies. When their own dog died, they realized that
there was not a local crematory that could provide the type of service they
wanted. They work hard to ensure that their clients are treated with the utmost
care at this crucial time.
That need in mind, they established All Heavenly Creatures, the only pet cre-
matory on the Treasure Coast. Available 24 hours a day, they will come to
your home to transport your pet and also provide an option of a viewing or a
service in their chapel. A beautiful handmade cedar urn, handcrafted by the
Amish, is provided.
Tammy and Fran work with many vets in the area. They are a member of the
St Lucie Chamber of Commerce and support the local Humane Society as well
as Dogs & Cats forever. They donate their services to the canine units of the
SLC police and SLC Sheriff.
They work hard to ensure that their clients are treated with.the utmost care at
this crucial time. The public is invited to tour their facility.

St. Lucie County Public Schools: the core of community life

Superintendent Michael Lannon, Florida's 2007 Superintendent of the Year


P public schools are vital to com-
munities. In St. Lucie County
public education is the. founda-
tion of a region moving forward in its
evolution as a hub for education,
research, industry and commerce.
And though student learning and
performance as measured through
standard assessment tests and other
evaluations are essential tools and
data for educators to shape instruc-
tion, public schools are much more.
Public schools are the core of com-
munity life.

Public schools impact
the child, family and
community quality of life

In addition to educating and train-
ing our community's future work-
force, St. Lucie County Public Schools
also have a tremendous impact on
the community in many ways that
affect the area's quality of life. As the
largest employer in the region, wages
paid to school district employees cir-
culate throughout local businesses
and contribute to the local tax base.
The construction of new classrooms
and worksites brought by the growth
of thousands of new students to our
public schools in recent years
employs dozens of local firms to
design, plan and furnish new build-

ings.
The school district also provides
many social services to children and
families, including physical and men-
tal health screenings, counseling, and


nursing services. Many families also
rely on the schools their children
attend to provide other fundamental
needs, such as transportation, nutri-
tional meals, and before and after
school care.

leaders and athletes

And what would school be like
without the arts and extracurricular
activities? Research has long indicat-
ed that arts education in public'
schools has tremendous impact on
student performance in core sub-
jects. Plus, think of how many bud-
ding artists have emerged from their
introduction to a musical instru-
ment, choral group or theatre pro-
duction. Similarly, the study of civics
and government, including participa-
tion in student government, are all
integral parts of the total develop-
ment of the future leaders in our


communities. And, the impact of
athletics and the mentoring coaches
provide in activities other than sports
are widely recognized. These activi-
ties are riot factored into a student's,
school's or district's statewide assess-
ment, but, coupled with the tradi-
tional role of educating students, are
significant parts of the school dis-
trict's accountability to the commu-
nity.

Public schools partner
with business and
community leaders

Education, business and community
leaders collectively recognize that the
emergence of the region as the
Research Coast must rely on the educa-
tion of future generations of profes-
sionals and craftsmen alike, and are
partnering in ways never before envi-
sioned to realize the goal of a self-sus-
taining community. St. Lucie County

through research and edu-
cation. Our school district
is growing with our com-

Our mission is to provide
quality education for all
students, every child-every
day. As a community, our
goal is to provide opportu-
nities for our graduating
students so they can con-

study curriculum with rigor and relevance, and train with
local business experts and scientists for the high skill,
high wage careers that existing and new businesses and
industries will bring to the region.

Public schools serve
as emergency shelters
during crises
And, just as critical a responsibility as educating our
children, during times of emergency, such as the
region experienced recently in wake of numerous hur-
ricanes, public schools are havens for families driven
from their homes by natural disasters.

The quality of education is
improving and expanding

The quality and opportunity of the public education
in this community, from St. Lucie County Public
Schools' kindergarten through high school classrooms
and extending through our partners in post-secondary
higher education, is improving and expanding to meet
the growing need for a highly qualified, and specially
trained workforce for the region.
Students' academic performances in St. Lucie County
Public Schools continues to improve as measured
through the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test,
increasing percentages of students in Honors, Advanced
Placement, Dual Enrollment and International
Baccalaureate programs, graduation rates, and the
growing numbers of graduates continuing to post-sec-
ondary education continues to rise.

St. Lucie County Schools


partner with faith community


For the last eight years, the Reverends
Patricia and James H. Brown have collaborat-
ed with St. Lucie County Schools and com-
munity members to provide a safe, nurturing
environment for children suspended from
school. The Browns operate Project R.O.C.K.,
Reaching Our Community Kids, which is
funded by Children's.Services Council, at the
Miracle Prayer Temple on Avenue Q in Fort
Pierce.
Staff and screened volunteers provide
supervision, tutoring, and mentoring to
develop positive behaviors to help students
in their program be successful when they
return to school, as well as later in life.
Students who spend their suspension at
Project R.O.C.K. get credit for their time at the
center.
SThe Reverends Brown are supportive of the
school district as educators, mentors, liaisons
and role models.
"We see sour role to provide information to
parents in our community on Sundays, and
every day, and would like to see more church-
es involved to help move our children along
in their education," said the Reverend
Patricia Brown.
And Mrs. Brown noted that there are many,
many success stories of local people who
have gone through the St. Lucie County
school system and prospered from their edu-
cation. "And the system is getting better and
better. There is a good, solid education avail-
able to every student in our schools," she
remarked.
The Reverend James H. Brown advises par-


1. Remember, you are still the par-
ent. Require adequate time for sleep-
ing, studying and reading.

2. Link privileges to performance.

3. If grades or test scores begin to
dip, stay in close touch with school
officials regarding tardiness and tru-
ancy.


4. Ask to see all graded papers.
Make sure your student understands
how to get the right answers to any
questions marked wrong.

5. Ask a teacher to review with you
your child's reading level. If she has
regressed in any way during high
school, ask why and what can be
done about it.

ents and extended families to be more
involved with their children. "Success of chil-
dren depends to a great extent on the support
that they have from home," the Reverend
Brown said, adding that an involved family
ensures a more .successful child in the school
environment.
There also is a Project R.O.C.K. at the Port

ated by the Reverend Winston Freckleton.

Academic Improvement Plan (AIP):

This is a plan that parents and teachers work
together to develop when a child is having trouble
keeping up with the skills required at his grade
level. This plan, which is written out and placed in.
a child's folder, is used to chart and measure
progress. Parents can ask their child's teacher about
the progress being made on their AIRP.

Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT):

Also known as the FCAT, this is a series of tests
given during the Spring Term to every public school
student in Florida in grades 3 through 11.. During
six days of testing, students actually take two differ-
ent types of tests, each with mathematics and a
reading section. There also is a science section for
grades 5, 8 and 11 and a writing section for grades 4,
8 and 10 on the FCAT.

Retention:

This refers to students who do not move on to the
next grade level at the end of the year due to poor
academic performance. For example, a 4th grade
student who is unable to do 4th grade work at the
end of the year is retained, or kept in 4th grade for
another year.


Sunshine State Standards:

In Florida, these standards are what your child is
expected to know and be able to do at each grade
level. Teachers are expected to cover this material.
All report card grades are based on these standards.


They are developed by the state and measured by
the FCAT given to every public school student in
grades 3 through 11 who is seeking a regular diplo-
ma.

Scope and Sequence:

In St. Lucie County, the Sunshine State Standards
for each of the core subjects (Language
Arts/Reading, Mathematics, Science and Social
Studies) are organized in terms of learning objec-
tives called benchmarks. These benchmarks are
sequenced in four 9-week periods for the purpose
of managing and focusing teaching and learning.
Students are expected to master these "chunks" of
information and skills prior to the 9-week bench-
mark test.

Benchmark Assessment:

The Benchmark Assessment is designed to moni-
tor the progress of your child's mastery of the tested
benchmark on the FCAT in reading, mathematics
and science. The data from the assessment will
provide diagnostic information that will give your
child's teacher valuable curriculum information
that will pinpoint your child's area of strengths and
weaknesses on the mastery of the Sunshine State
Standards. This information will enable the teacher
to provide early intervention to help your child, if
necessary. You will receive a benchmark report of
your child's progress so that you can see the areas of
strengths and weaknesses and provide appropriate
support for your child.

Student Progression Plan:

The Pupil Progression Plan is a long, technical
document detailing federal, state and local rules


Known as an IEP, this is a plan developed for a
student with a disability by a team made up of par-
ents, educators and a representative of the school
district. The plan describes the student's present
levels of performance and priority educational
needs. This information is used to establish goals
and a course of study with appropriate accommo-
dations and services.

Limited English Proficient Student Plan:

This plan, developed by a council representing
parents of LEP students, outlines aural/oral, read-
ing and writing goals for students who are designat-
ed as Limited English Proficiency (LEP).

ESOL:

ESOL stands for English for Speakers of Other
Languages. The goal of St. Lucie County School
District's ESOL program is to expand each child's
English Language proficiency and academic poten-
tial as effectively and efficiently as possible. When a
child in enrolled in the district he is assessed to
determine whether assistance with English devel-
opment is needed. If support is needed, the stu-
dent is provided services to compensate for the lan-

guage deficit and is evaluated periodically for
progress and satisfactory proficiency in the English
Language.

Extracurricular Activities:

These are school-sanctioned activities, such as
clubs or athletic teams, that happen either before or
after school.

cards, promotion and retention, testing, grading
and academic standards, academic transfers, aca-

Exceptional Student
Education Program:

Through this program, which is also known as
ESE, a student with a disability receives an educa-
tion designed through an Individual Educational
Plan (IEP) to meet his/her specific needs. ESE stu-
dents seeking regular diplomas are taught the same
Sunshine State Standards, take the same tests and
are graded on the same scale as other students.

Why



students



are tested

Throughout your child's school years, he
will take dozens of standardized tests,
including the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test in grades 3-11.
Standardized tests show how your child is
doing compared to others and tracks his
progress over time. Your child's teacher has
all the testing records for your child and uses
them to see if there's a problem that requires
additional help or a different way of teach-
ing. Tests also help teachers identify stu-
dents' strengths in order to provide more
challenging academic opportunities.
Schools use testing results to develop
school-wide plans for improving academic
performance.
All testing results are available to parents.
Standardized tests can be graded in a
number of ways:
.Norm-referenced tests compare your
child to others across the nation. Results are
commonly reported as a percentile. If a stu-
dent scores at the 75th percentile on a
norm-referenced test it means that he did
better than 75 percent of the students in the
same grade level taking the same test. It does
not mean that he answered 75 per cent of
the answers correctly. The lowest acceptable
passing scorer on a norm-referenced test is
usually the 26th percentile or higher.
For several portions of the FCAT, students'
scores are assigned a level. Level 5 is the
highest that can be achieved and indicates
that the student can handle the most chal-
lenging material. Level 4 shows perform-
ance above grade level. Level 3 shows that a
student is learning as he should. Level 2 is a
yellow flag that a student needs to work
harder and receive extra help at home and at
school. Level 1 is a red flag that the child is
performing far below where he should be
and may not be promoted to the next grade.
The FCAT also includes a writing test in
grades 4, 8, and 10, which is administered
annually in February, This test requires stu-
dents to write about an assigned topic with-
in a 45-minute time limit. Their writing is
scored on a predetermined set of expecta-
tions, including staying on the topic and
linking ideas together. Science is the most
recent subject to be tested through the
FCAT. Eleventh grade students are required
to take the science portion of the FCAT.


Students throughout Florida are tested annually in the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test.




Sunshine State



Standards:


What teaching, grades, and tests are based on


You may have heard about the Sunshine State
Standards in media stories about education or from
teachers and officials at your child's school. The stan-
dards are developed by the state of Florida, cover
every academic subject and are followed by every
public school in Florida. They state what your child is
expected to know at different grade levels.
For instance, by the end of second grade, a student
should be able to predict what a passage, or piece of
writing, is about based on its title and illustrations. By
sixth grade, a student should know the difference
between weight and mass. By 12th grade, a student
should know that the electronic configurations in
atoms determine how a substance reacts and how
much energy, is involved ifi reactions.
Classroom instruction in every subject from Art to
Zoology is based n these standards, and teachers'
grades show how well students are performing
according to the standards. A student cannot earn a
C or better until his performance matches the grade
in which he or she is enrolled.


Each spring, a series of tests is administered to St.
Lucie County Public schools students to measure
how well students have learned in these standards.
These tests, which measure writing, reading, math,
and science'abilities in grades 3-11, are often referred
to as the School District test. It is an examination that
is mandated and scored by the state. Your child's per-
formance on those tests can affect whether or not he
move on to the next grade. All students who want to
earn a standard high school diploma must be able to
pass the FCAT or specific alternatives as mandated by
the Florida Legislature.
Although public school teachers are sometimes
criticized for teaching to the FCAT, in reality, teachers
are teaching the standards that are measured by
these tests. These are skills your child will use
through life.
If you would like to read these standards for your-
self, go to http://www.st.lucie.kl2.fl.us/index.aspx
and click on Scope and Sequence, or ask for a copy at
your child's school.

What your child is
learning in kindergarten


Here are just a few examples.
Your child's teachers can provide a
complete list or you can go to
www.stlucie.kl2.fl.us/parentportal.

*Understands basic phonetic
principles (e.g., rhyming words;
words that have the same initial
and final sounds; sounds at the
beginning, middle and end of
a word).
Compare two or more sets (up to
10 objects in each set) and
identifies which set is equal to,
more than, or less than the other.
Listens to views and discusses
stories, poems and other media
about qualities of a good citizen.
Uses the five senses (i. e., taste,
touch, smell, hearing, sight) to take
in and respond to information in
order to learn about the
environment.

How to help
your child at home

Read to your child every day,
including make-believe stories and
selections about real people and
events.
Help your child learn words and
name people, places, things, and
actions.
Count objects with your child (ito
20) in real life tasks, such as
setting the table for dinner.

Ways to help your student and
how to check his progress

Attend orientation at the
beginning of the year and open
house during the year.
Ask the teacher questions
regarding what will be covered
and what will be expected in each
course.
Volunteer at your child's school.
Check your child's work each day
Talk to your child about his school
work.
*. Look for signs of frustration or
problems or dropping grades. If you
observe any, contact the teacher.

formance and make budget deci-
sions.
Join the PTO or booster club.
Read the newsletter.
Visit the school's Web site.
Communicate regularly with
your child's teacher.
Ask questions.

St. Lucie County teachers in grades
1 through 12 use GradeBook, an elec-
tronic system for recording grades
and attendance. A component of
GradeBook, the parent Internet
Viewer, allows parents to check on
their children's progress, using the
Internet. To access the Parent Internet
Viewer (PIV), contact your child's
school for user ID and password. Go
to www.stlucie.kl2.fl. uslparentportal,
click Parents under Resource Area,
and then choose Grades Online to
enter the PIV
If you don't have access to the
Internet, we welcome you to visit a
school, and use a computer. Public
libraries have computers available for
use as well.


What your child is learning
in first grade:

Here are just a few examples.
The teacher can provide a complete list
or you can go to
www.stlucie.kl2.fl.us/parentportal.

Begins to read simple books and
reads often so that recognizing words
becomes easy and automatic.
Uses real objects to show the
meaning of addition (putting together,
increasing) and subtraction (taking
away, comparing, finding the
differences.
*Makes a plan for writing that
includes a central idea and related
ideas.
Poses questions, seeks answers,
draws pictures of observations, and
makes decisions using information.

How to help your child
at home

Read aloud to your child. In this
way, you can model expression,
pacing, and phrasing.
Listen to your child read. Suggest


strategies for him to determine an
unknown word (e.g., using
illustrations for visual clues,
reading on to the end of the
sentence for context. Be patient
and let your child know you are
proud of his reading.
Talk to your child about coins and
value. Let him select the correct
coins for a small purchase and help
determine the correct amount of
change you should be getting back.
Check your child's schoolwork
each day and provide feedback.
Continue to redd to your child
every day; a child will learn
vocabulary, expression, and
enthusiasm for reading from you.

First grade students use concrete
activities to build their knowledge of
new concepts. They are able to identi-
fy similarities and differences between
two or more objects.
Students will be assessed regularly
to determine how well they meet the
academic expectations of first grade.
These assessments help guide teach-
ers in adjusting their instructional
program to better meet students' indi-
vidual needs.
If your child experiences academic
difficulty, diagnostic assessment will
be given to identify the specific area of
need. A parent/teacher conference
will be scheduled to develop an
Academic Improvement Plan (AIP). In
this conference, you and the class-
room teacher will work together to
select the resources and services used
to hep your child improve reading
performance. The goal of the AIP is to
increase proficiency in one or more of
the five elements of reading: phone-
mic awareness, phonics, vocabulary,
fluency and comprehension. It is
important that teachers and parents
identify what can be done at home to
help the students improve their read-
ing skills.
If your child remains below grade
level in reading at the conclusion of the
first semester, you will receive a certi-
fied letter notifying you that your
child may not advance to the next
grade. You will be asked to attend a
conference to make changes to the
AIP in order to accelerate the remedi-

"What your child is learning
in third grade

Here area few examples. The teacher
can provide a list or you can go to
www.firn.edu/doe/menu/sss.htm.

Understand explicit and implicit
ideas and information in grade
level text (e.g. main-idea, implied
message, relevant supporting
details and facts, chronological
order of events and author's pur-
pose.
Drafts and revises writing in cur-
sive that has a logical organization-
al pattern, transitional devices,
and follows the rules of punctua-
tion, capitalization and spelling.
Analyzes number patterns and
states the rule for relationships
(e.g., 2, 4, 6, 8, ....... the rule: +2).
Understands ways selected indi-
viduals, ideas, and decisions influ-
enced historical events.
Completes an experiment: defines
a problem, makes a
prediction/proposes a solution,
identifies variables, collects,
organizes and interprets data,
analyzes information and sup-
ports a finding.


How to help your child
at home

Ask your child to select a problem
from his math homework and
explain the process used to obtain
the answer. Encourage your child
to consider more than one way to
solve a problem.
Read together every day. During
the reading, pause and ask your
child to explain "how" or "why."

In third grade, students are expect-
ed to be more responsible, self-moti-
vated and ready for higher levels of
thinking. The instructional program
for third grade is rigorous, in both
what students learn and the pace at
which they are expected to learn. It is
at this grade level that students first
participate in the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test
(FCAT).


Third grade students "will be
assessed regularly to monitor how
well they are meeting academic.
expectations. Standardized test
scores, district-approved assessments
and report card grades are used to
determine if a student is at, below or
above grade level. These assessments
help teachers adjust their teaching to
better meet the individual needs of
students.
If your child enters third grade with-
out the necessary academic skills, or
begins to experience difficulty at any
time, additional assessment will be
done to identify the specific area of
need. Once a problem is identified,
you will be asked to attend a
parent/teacher conference you devel-
op an Academic Improvement Plan
(AIP). In this conference, you and the
teacher will work together to develop
a plan for remediation. The teacher
will also help you choose resources
you can use at home to help your
child.
If retention is a possibility due to
continuing below grade level per-
formance, you will receive a certified
letter in January asking you to attend
a conference to discuss changes to the
AIP. It is important that you and the
teacher maintain consistent commu-
nication throughout the year to mon-
itor student progress.
In the final month of school, stu-
dents will again be formally assessed
to determine academic progress. The
student's FCAT scores, grades and
results of other assessments will
determine promotion to the fourth
grade.

What your child is learning in
fourth grade

Here are a few examples. The teacher
can provide a complete list or go to
www.fim.edu/doe/menu/sss.htm

Revises a draft to develop a piece
of writing by adding, deleting and
rearranging ideas and details.
-Uses problem-solving strategies to

ed to solve one-and two-step
problems involving addition, sub-
traction, multiplication and divi-
sion.


Knows how plants and animals
interact with one another in an
ecosystem.
Constructs and analyzes graphs,
tables, maps and charts to organ-
ize, examine and evaluate infor-
mation.

How to help your child
at home

Determine some ways to help your
child apply the knowledge and skills
learned in school. For example:

Plan a budget (approved by you of
course!) and carry out the plan for
an upcoming family event or cele-
bration.
Write often to relative or friends
who live far away.
Read to a younger brother or sister
or a neighbor's child regularly.

In fourth grade, students expand
their skills in written expression. This
is also a year in which students learn
about the historical, economical, geo-
graphical and political significance of
Florida and the greater Unites States.
Fourth grade students will be
assessed regularly to monitor how
well they are meeting academic
expectations. Standardized test
scores, district-approved assessment
and report card grades will be used to
determine is a student is at, above or
below grade level. These assessments
help teachers adjust their instruction-
al program to meet the individual
needs of students.
If evidence indicates that your child
is working below grade level (upon
entry to fourth grade or at any time
throughout the year), diagnostic
assessment will be provided to deter-
mine the exact nature of the deficien-
cy. At this time, you will be asked to
attend a parent/teacher conference to
develop an Academic Improvement
Plan (AIP) which will define the
actions necessary to correct the aca-
demic deficiency. During this confer-
ence, it is important for you to learn
what you can do to help your child at
home.
If your child remains below grade
level, a certified letter will be mailed
home in January advising you that


your child might be retained. A par-
ent/teacher conference will be sched-
uled to make revisions to the .AIP
based on results of the most current
assessments. Your child's academic
progress is directly related to the pos-
itive and productive partnership you
develop with the teacher.
At the conclusion of the school year,
students will again be formally
assessed. Results of other standard-
ized tests and grades will determine
whether a student will be promoted to
fifth grade.

What your child is learning
in fifth grade

Here are a few examples. The teacher

dicts and generalizes numerical
and geometric patterns using a
variety of models.
Understands the structure, func-
tions and primary responsibilities
of executive, legislative and judi-
cial branches of the United States
government.

How you can help your child
at home

Identify ways for your child to
apply skills to real life topics and
situations. Some suggestions are:
Write a letter to someone is a posi-
tion of authority and try to per-
suade that person to change an
existing practice or policy.
Research a topic that is of interest
to the child using resource materi-
als and/or the Internet.

The purpose of middle school is to
extend each student's literacy and
study skills to the level needed to suc-
ceed in high school. The most impor-
tant indicator of whether your child is
making adequate progress toward
that goal is whether he is reading and
writing on grade level.
Elementary schools teach students
to read fluently, Middle school stu-
dents learn how to understand what
they read and how to use that knowl-
edge to solve problems and draw con-
clusions. In every subject, your mid-
dle school student must be able to
read well. All core courses require the
ability to comprehend passages from
textbooks, the Internet and other
sources.
To succeed in middle school a stu-
dent needs to understand textbooks,
articles, poetry, essays, stories, novels,
and technical descriptions of how
things work. He has to build and draw
on a much larger vocabulary, find
data, summarize what he's read, fig-
ure out how to perform a task, and
analyze different points of view about
the same topic.
Every middle school teacher must
teach his student the vocabulary of
his subject area, how to utilize the
source materials, how to outline and
take notes, how to determine what's
most important, and how to explain
verbally and in writing what has been
learned.
Your middle school child should:
Read a minimum of 25 books per
year, including fiction and non-
fiction books.
Lean to organize his daily work
and schedule his study time.
Take useful notes and then use,his
notes to study from.
Write clearly and at length about
what he has learned in all his sub-
jects.
Conduct research both in the
media center and on-line.

Courses your child will take
in middle school

Sixth, seventh, and eighth graders
complete 15 courses in order to be


promoted to high school.
These courses include three levels
each of math, language arts, science
and social studies. Students also take
one year of physical education, and
two electives. Students who have
been retained or are in danger of
retention may take basic sills immer-
sion coursers instead of electives in
order to catch up.
Advances students may also take
courses in math, science, Web
design, or a foreign language for
high school credit.

How FCAT affects
promotion/retention

The promotion or retention deci-
sion made at the end of the school
year is based on grades and scores
on standardized tests, particularly
the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Tests (FCAT).
The FCAT tests students on the
Sunshine State Standards, the very
same body of knowledge that is
taught in the classroom and is the
basis for report card grades. Rarely is
there a difference between FCAT
scores and report card grades. Both
cover the same material.
If a middle school student fails the
FCAT but has good report card
grades, one explanation could be
"grade inflation," which Violates
School Board policy and does a seri-
ous disservice to children and par-
ents.
If a student scores well on the
FCAT but fails his coursework, this
may mean the student has the abili-
ty but isn't applying himself.
In 6th, 7th and 8th grades, the
FCAT is given in the spring. These
tests measure reading and math.
Two additional tests, given in the 8th
grade, focus on science and writing.
Scores on these tests show how
ready a student is for the more diffi-
cult coursework in the next grade.
The Middle Grades Reform Act of
2004 requires the development of an
academic improvement plan (AIP)
for each entering sixth-grade stu-
dent who scored below Level 3 in


Forest Grove Middle School's Kerri Walukiewicz, Florida's Teacher of the Year
2007, works with students on reading exercises.


reading on the most recent FCAT.
This plan will remain in effect until
the student achieves a score of Level
3 or above in Reading on the FCAT.
In the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades, stu-
dents will be held back if they fail
both portions of the reading FCAT or
both portions of math FCAT. If a stu-
dent fails the FCAT but his course-
work shows proficiency, the school
may "appeal" the FCAT results by
considering Good Cause
Exemptions as specified by law and
listed in our Pupil Progress Plan. If
those additional considerations con-
firm a student's lack of readiness to
go to the next grade, thenhe will be
retained.
Eighth-grade students are required
to pass the FCAT and coursework to
move on the 9th grade. That's
because students promoted to high
school without first mastering mid-
dle school basics have no realistic
chance to succeed with more rigor-
ous coursework, or pass the 10th
grade FCAT, which is a requirement
for high school graduation.
If your child is not promoted,
you'll have the chance to discuss if
face-to-face with school officials.

designed to : help students
increase their reading skills.'
Students read to a therapy dog
for a certain period of time and
volunteers will assist students as
necessary with reading skills.
The dog's non-judgmental pres-
ence provides comfort to moti-
vate the student to read aloud.

Battle of the Books/Sunshine
State Young Readers
The Sunshine State Young
Reader's Program is a statewide
reading motivation program that
encourages students to read


independently. Many St. Lucie
County Middle Schools have
organized a school-wide chal-
lenge called Battle of the Books,
where students battle students
or students battle the teacher in
a quiz show similar to a game
show based on books selected
from the Sunshine State Readers
List. Sunshine State books are
selected based on their appeal,
literary value, varied genres, cur-
riculum and/dr multicultural
connection.
Mysteries in the Middle
Mysteries in the Middle is an
engaging reading workshop for
middle school parents, teachers
and students. Participants watch
and take part in the mock filming


of a pre-teen movie mystery. As
the plot thickens, clue about the
disappearance of the school's
mascot are revealed as partici-
pants take part in reading strate-
gy rehearsals. When it's discov-
ered that the last page of the
script is missing, the participants
try to solve the mystery using.
their newfound reading skills.
This is St. Lucie County's first
year in implementing this work-

Middle School Science


There are eight areas of science, labeled Strands A
through H, that Florida believes students should
know and be able to do by the time they complete'
middle school. St. Lucie County middle school sci-
ence teachers have taken the prescribed Florida
Sunshine State Standards for grades 6 through 8 and
divided them into common topics. This arrange-
ment is often called "cake layer style".
6th grade, the first layer, concentrates on Earth
and Space Sciences. It begins with an introduction
to the physical science principles, which underlie
movement on Earth and in space, and then moves
directly to the complete study of Strand D, Processes
that Shape the Earth, and Strand E, Earth and Space.
The middle layer, 7th grade, focuses on Life
Sciences including plant, animal and environmen-
tal studies. Strand F, process of life, and Strand G,
How Living Organisms Interact with Their


Environment, provide a challenging and engaging
focus for these middle years.
Physical Science in 8th grade "tops the cake". The
strands addressed are Strand A, Nature of Matter;
Strand B, Energy; Strand C, Force and Motion.
Throughout all middle school grades, under-
standing of the way scientists think and work is
addressed through Strand H, Nature of Science.
Additionally, the 8th grade curriculum provides time
for review of all strands so that students willbe able
to demonstrate their knowledge of all 6 through 8
science when FCAT is conducted in the spring of 8th

8th grade is also the year when instruction in
awareness and personal wellness is provided.
Topics ranging from drugs, alcohol, tobacco and
HIV prevention are addressed using a variety of
materials approved by district level committees.


Math



counts.

St. Lucie County secondary schools offer
numerous mathematic courses and
requirements. Mathematics courses are
developed to enhance students' problem
solving skills and to evaluate complex
mathematical concepts.

Middle and high school math

Middle and high school students partici-
pate in' rigorous instruction in courses
designed to focus on algebra, geometry,
statistics and calculus.; Through these
courses, students develop an appreciation
for the role of mathematics in their every-
day world..

Math Matters

* Mathematics instructors create opportu-
nities for collaboration with science
instructors for the development of lessons
to integrate mathematics and science

* Students gain greater opportunity to
understand the mathematical concepts
through the use of real world applications
by using technology integration through
Destination Math, a computer-based
instructional program

* In St. Lucie County, there are over 200
mathematics instructors

* Mathematics instructors participated in
the first annual mathematics conference to
increase knowledge and instruction skills

* The Sunshine Scholars Recognition
Program for mathematics and science is
an exciting educational opportunity for
students to compete in rigorous problem-
solving activities at the school,. district,
regional and state levels for awards and
scholarships

ON THE RISE


Promoting literacy is the most
important goal of St. Lucie
County high schools. Every
teacher is expected to promote
literacy by teaching students
how to find information by read-
ing passages, how to understand
what they read and how to use
the knowledge by writing about
it and explaining it orally.
Additional assistance is pro-
vided to students scoring a Level
1 or 2 on the reading section of
the FCAT through Intensive
Reading classes. Students
receive individualized instruc-
tion and frequent assessment to
ensure that their specific needs
are niet.
In high school all teaching,
testing and grades are based on
the Sunshine State Standards.
The district Scope and Sequence
organizes the Sunshine State
Standards in the order that they
should be taught. The grade


your child earns in each course
is based solely on the mastery of
the standards for that course.
Because the standards in some
courses are more rigorous than
others,.St. Lucie County schools
operate on a "weighted scale".
This means that some courses
are "weighted" more than others
in calculating grade point aver-
ages. Weighted courses include
International Baccalaureate,
Dual Enrollment and Advanced
Placement courses. These
courses have additional weights
of .04. Honors courses' receive
the additional weight of .02.
For example, students receiv-
ing an "A", which is equal to four
points in one of the college level
courses would receive 4.04
weighting. In an honors course
they would receive 4.02 weight-
ing. In regular, non-weighted
courses they would only receive
four points for an "A".


Students at all high
schools may choose
career-focused
courses. These students
are preparing for
careers in education.


What happens if your

child falls behind

If your child's grade point average falls below
2.5, or his Work is below standard at semester,
you will receive a message on the report card
stating that "Your child's grade point average
puts them at risk of not graduating". At that time
you may need to contact your child's teacher to
find out where the problem may lie. If you at
anytime see your child becoming seriously frus-
trated, or you observe declining grades or failing
performance, make an appointment with the
teacher immediately.
St. Lucie high schools offer computer assisted
credit catch up labs and FCAT prep courses after
school to students who are behind. There also-is
a district wide Performance Based Diploma
Program that offers students who are behind to
catch up on their credits and graduate. This pro-
gram is offered at Fort Pierce Central High
School.
Participation in extra-curricular activities-
requires at least a 2.0 GPA, but some high schools
have higher standards for some activities.


If your child has been educated in a Florida
public school, he or she has probably taken the
Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT)
every spring since 3rd grade. This test, which is
mandated by the state, assumes even greater
importance during your child's high school
years.
By state law, a student pursuing a regular
diploma must pass both the reading and math
portions of the FCAT to graduate. Each year
that state decides what grade will be considered
"passing". For example, the class of 2007 must
score a 327 in reading and a 315 in math in


order to pass the test. According to the state,
"passing" scores will continue to rise every year.
Those who do not pass the FCAT the first
time have five more chances to pass the test
while in high school or even after completion of
their senior year, if necessary. Though the score
that constitutes a passing grade may continue
to change every year a student who retakes the
test only has to get the score established by the
Legislature the first time he or she takes the
test. If your child does not pass the FCAT in the
10th grade, remediation in reading and math
will be offered the following year at the high
school.
One exception to the FCAT graduation
requirement was passed by the 2003 legislature.
It allows students with disabilities who have not
earned passing scores on either the reading or
math portion of the FCAT to still earn a stan-
dard high school diploma if the IEP team deter-
mines that the test does not accurately measure
the student's ability.
Students seeking this exemption must have
attempted the FCAT once in 10th and once in
11th grade and have the required 2.0 grade
point average in coursework required for gradu-
ation.

Schools pilot

language

immersion

program for

families

In the past few years, St. Lucie County has
experienced tremendous growth in the English
Language Learners (ELL) population, leading to
the need of providing additional services. The
St. Lucie County School District is currently
piloting a program at C.A. Moore K-8, St. Lucie
Elementary, White City Elementary and
Bayshore Elementary. We believe providing
additional language instruction to our students
increases their English proficiency and supports
the families, which will increase their opportu-
nities to become more successful in school.
The mission of the English Language
Immersion Program (ELIP) is to provide a mul-
ticultural environment through a supportive
educational, challenging atmosphere, which is
conducive to the student's academic success in
the general education setting. It also will pro-
vide support to enhance the family's communi-
cation between school and home.
In ELIP, students are working on their English
proficiency on a daily basis for at least 45 min-
utes a day. During evenings, the labs are open
to parents, as well as students.
Maria Luviano came to the United States
from Mexico six years ago and has struggled
with English since then. Her son, who is in the
first grade, requires her assistance on his school
work. "I don't know how to help him," said
Luviano. She wants to become fluent in English
and be able to help her son with his academics.
Since the ELIP lab opened at C.A. Moore K-7 she
has come to class every night. Due to her dedi-
cation, she is better able to help to help her son
with his school work. The program that is used
in the lab to teach English targets the listening,
writing, reading and oral pronunciation of the
language. "I am happy for the opportunity to
'learn," she said.
Just like Luviano, Elizabeth Ramirez wants to
learn English to help her child. "I suffer a lot
with my son's homework. I want to learn
English so I can help him," explained Ramirez.
She has gone to other programs to try to- learn
English, but she feels at home at the ELIP lab
where she receives respect from the staff. Not
only is she learning how to write and speak the
English language, but she is also gaining knowl-
edge incomputer skills.

tion and solve problems.
This final year of elemen-
tary school prepares stu-
dents for the rigorous learn-
ing tasks that will be expect-
ed at middle school.
Developing skills and atffi-
tudes that will be of value in
the work place is also a high
priority.
Fifth grade students are
assessed regularly to moni-
tor achievement of grade
level benchmarks.
Standardized test scores,
district-approved assess-
ment and report card
grades will be used to
determine if a student is
working at, above or below
grade level.
Diagnostic assessment
will be performed if your
child enters fifth grade and
is below -grade level, or
begins to experience aca-
demic difficulty. Once the
specific problem is identi-
fied, you will be asked to
attend a parent/teacher


conference to develop an
Academic Improvement
Plan (AIP) to help your
child improve. It is impor-
tant for you to ask for help
identifying what you can do
to provide support at
home.
If your child remains
below grade level and could
be considered for reten-
tion, you will receive a cer-
tified letter in January ask-
ing you to attend a confer-
ence to discuss changes to
the AIP. Maintaining a
strong home-school part-
nership is essential to a stu-
dent's success in school.
At the conclusion of
school, students will again
be formally assessed to
determine academic
progress. Scores on the
FCAT, standardized tests in
math and reading and
grades will determine
whether a student will be
promoted to sixth grade.

ation process. It is important to
remain in close contact with the
teacher in order to monitor if the
strategies are working.
At the conclusion of the school year,
students will again be formally
assessed to determine grade level per-
formance in reading.
Recommendation for promotion to
second grade will be based on results
of standardized tests, as well as a
passing grade in reading for the eyar.
If your child is reading at grade level,
he will be promoted to second grade.

What your child is learning
in second grade

Here are some examples. Ask the
teacher for a complete list or go to
www.firn.edu/doe/menu/sss.htm.

Reads with expression and uses a
variety of strategies to comprehend
text (e.g, predicting, retelling,
discussing, restating ideas).
Drafts and revises simple


sentences and passages, stories,
letters, and explanations and
express ideas clearly.
Adds and subtracts two-digit
numbers with or without
regrouping using models and
- concrete materials.
Knows the locations of the
community, city, state and county
on a map and globe.
Knows ways objects can be
grouped according to similarities
or differences of their physical
characteristics.

How to help
your child at home

|Have conversations with your
child every day. Ask her "why" and
"how" questions.
Check your child's school work
each day and provide feedback
Continue to read to your child
everyday; a child will learn
vocabulary, expression, and enthusi-
asm for reading from you.


Students in the second grade are
building independent learning habits
and fine-tuning their skills in reading,
writing and mathematics. As they
move through the last of their "pri-
mary" school years, they will learn to
apply their knowledge and skills.
Students will be assessed regularly
to monitor their progress toward
meeting the expectations of second
grade. Standardized test scores, dis-
trict approved assessment in reading,
writing and math and report card
grades will be used to identify stu-
dents who are at, above and below
grade level. The results of these
assessments will help teachers adjust
their instructional program to meet
the individual needs of students.
If your child encounters academic
difficulties at any time, diagnostic
assessment will be provided to deter-
mine the exact nature of the prob-
lem. You will then be asked to attend
a parent/teacher conference to devel-
op an Academic Improvement Plan
(AIP). In this conference, you and
the teacher will discuss the specific


skill area that are below grade level,
and. decide on the best strategies to
help the student advance. It is
important that you ask for sugges-
tions and resources to provide addi-
tional support at home.
You will receive a certified letter in
January, asking you to attend a confer-
ence to discuss changes to the AIR if
your child remains below grade level
in reading and could be considered
for retention. Throughout the school
year, you and the teacher must con-
tinueto work together to help your
child become proficient in reading,
writing and math.
In the final month of school, stu-
dents will again be formally assessed
to evaluate progress. Results of stan-
dardized tests and a.passing grade in
reading for the year will be used to
determine promotion to third grade.
This is the final year in which reading is
the sole criteria in determining
whether a studentwill advance to the
next grade.
