PORT ST. LUCIE Two
would-be robbers
received a surprise last
week when police greeted
them just before they were
about to rob a local restau-
rant.
Port St. Lucie Police
arrested Troy Hollander
Craddock, 21, and Omar
Robinson, 20, on April 26,
when, just after midnight,
they approached the
Checkers Restaurant on
U.S. 1 in Port St. Lucie.
Police said they learned
through a tip from a resi-
dent that the men were
planning to rob the restau-
rant.
"The suspects arrived at
the same time we believed
they were going to arrive
and they were wearing
what we believe they
would be wearing," said

Starting the beginning
of June, residents can
stay in the county and
receive treatment at the
new house.
"We couldn't provide a
home close to home and
we wanted to be able to
provide that," said Bill
Clifford, board president
of Treasure Coast Hos-
pices. "We're proud that
now we can. This house is
an opportunity for love
and caring like we offered
in the old house."
Treasure Coast Hos-
pices held a formal dedi-
cation for the new house
on April 27. The house
sits on eight acres off
Midway Road and can
house 16 patients. Each
room is private and pro-

Another one
is expected in
a few months

BY MATT DONEGAN
Staff writer
In an effort to attract
new teachers and retain
the ones already on staff,
the St. Lucie County
School District last week
announced the third
employee pay increase of
2006-2007.
Retroactive to July 1,
2006, the 1.5 percent
raise, to be paid out June
15, brings the average
total raises for teachers
and other staff members
this school year to 7.5
percent, or 1.5 percent
more than last school
year.
The impact on the dis-
trict budget from the lat-
est increase is $2.7 mil-


lion, bringing teacher
salaries over the $155
million mark. That num-
ber is expected to grow
more in just a few
months.
While announcing the
latest increase April 24,
district officials also
revealed that a 2.25 per-
cent scale increase has
already been recom-
mended for the 2007-
2008 school year.
Starting teachers with a
bachelor's degree began
employment in '06-'07 at
an annual salary of
$34,551. In 2007-2008,
the increase is anticipat-
ed to bring new teachers
to $35,356.
"The starting point for
'07-'08 gives us the high-
est beginning teacher
salary on the Treasure
Coast," said Chief Finan-
cial Officer Tim Bargeron.

St. Lucie County students


see improvement in writing


BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
The results of one part
of the state education
assessment test have
been released and a
majority of students in St.
Lucie County have shown.
improvement.
The scores for the writ-
ing portion of the Florida
Comprehensive Assess-
ment Test were released
last week and there was
progress in the scores.
The FCAT measures stu-
dents' abilities in reading
and math .for third
through 10th grades,
based on Sunshine State
Standards.
Owen Roberts, assistant
superintendent of cur-
riculum, assessment and
accountability, said the
biggest gains were in ele-
mentary schools, where
fourth-graders took the
writing part of the FCAT.


"Our school district has
outperformed when
compared to last year,"'
Mr. Roberts said.
A 3.5 or higher is a pass-
ing score, and a majority
of students 'achieved that
score. The highest score
possible is a 6. Seventy-
eight percent of fourth-
graders, 83 percent of
eighth-graders and 74
percent of 10th-graders
received a 3.5 or higher
on the 2007 FCAT writing.
Last year, fourth-
graders and 10th-graders
were at 72 percent, while
eighth-graders were at 81
percent.
"This, to me, is an
encouraging story that
the community should
take pride in," Mr.
Roberts said.
Next year, 10th graders
will need to pass the writ-
ing portion of the test in
order to graduate.
"There will always be


concern with 10th
graders," Mr. Roberts
said. "Here, we will never
be satisfied until all stu-
dents are proficient what-
ever test is used."
Debbie Caudill, princi-
pal at Rivers Edge Ele-
mentary School in Port St.
Lucie, has seen her school
remain proficient in, writ-
ing over the last few years.
Out of the 137 fourth-
grade students who took
the test, 93 percent of
them made a 3.5 or better
on the writing section.
"Teachers have really
worked to make writing
fun," Ms. Caudill said. "If
students think writing is
fun, they'll write.better."
The school has imple-
mented a district-recom-
mended writing program
and has brought in a con-
sultant from Vero Beach
to train teachers on how

Staff writer

A mass recruitment ini-
tiative is again underway
in the St. Lucie County
School District, and last
week's raises are just
another tool that can be
used to bring in new teach-
ers.
The beaches and the
weather are the usual
attractors used on poten-
tial hires from out of state,
said district recruiter Jan-
ice Williams.
But the not so obvious
draw comes in Florida's
homegrown teacher
drought.
In states like Michigan,
the sparse number of
available education jobs
results in many teacher
hopefuls having to substi-


tute teach before finding
full-time employment.
Teachers like this come to
the Sunshine State.
"Florida has such a need
that they don't have to be
substitutes here first," Ms.
Williams said. "They can
go directly into teaching."
Last year, the district
hired 660 teachers, the
majority of which came
from Michigan and New
York, she said.
When recruiting in many
states, such as New York,
the starting teacher salary
might.be higher than in St.
Lucie. However, those
states have a state income
tax and Florida does not.
"Our take-home, pay
makes us competitive,"
Ms. Williams said. "That's
another negotiating tool."
And yet another is the


district's mentoring pro-
gram.
"I think a lot of teachers
will come if you have a
strong mentoring program
that shows you're commit-
ted to their professional
development," she said.
For the 2007-2008 school
year, the district aims to
hire 500 teachers. The
recruiting process is nearly
over. Recruiters have
already been on 11 trips,
each of which may include
more than one stop. For
example, a trip that' con-
cluded last week brought
recruiters to El Paso, Texas,
as well as two New Mexico
locations. There have also
been trips to Ohio, Michi-
gan and more.
Of course, St. Lucie
recruiters also try to find
teachers from within the

GUMBOILS;
Q: What are gumboils?
A: Gumboils are painful, pimple-like swellings that can erupt on your gums,
usually as a result of decay or an abscess (an infection). The gumboil is full of pus
that has worked its way to the surface of the gum. You can rinse your mouth with
warm salt water to relieve irritation and to bring the boil to a head. Once it
comes to a head it may burst on its own and release its contents. Because a
gumboil is usually a symptom of a serious infection or gum disease,.the i
appearance of one should be reason to call your dentist promptly for an
appointment.
Decay generally begins with a small spot of demineralized enamel on the tooth surface, usually
hidden from sight in an individual tooth fissure or between teeth. This is why brushing, which is o
effective at getting into fissures, and flossing, which is the best way to get between teeth, are so
important to good oral health. An abscess is an infection around the root'of a tooth in the gum or
the jawbone. Pus begins to collect as a result of the infection and a painful lump develops. So if you
develop a gumboil or any other painful lump in your jaw, see your dentist immediately.

salaries in a highly com-
petitive position."
More than 660 teachers
new to the district were
hired this school year, a
year in which Mr. Lannon
said growth, retirements
and class size reduction
created a "perfect storm"
for employment needs.
While Florida is d6wn
4,000 total students this
*year compared to last, St.
Lucie County is up roughly
3,000, he said. Another 500
teachers are expected to be
hired in the district for the
2007-2008 school year.
While the raises help
attract new teachers, they
also reward the veterans.
Included in next year's
proposed increase will be
the addition of a pay scale
step. Going into year 10,
next year's scale shows
teachers at $39,492. Teach-
ers in their 20th year will


be paid $49,735. At the end
of this year, senior teachers
will max out on the 27th
step at. $58,873. Next
school year, a 28th step will
be added, advancing
teachers with 28 and more
years of experience to
$59,717.
As the district continues
to reviews its financial
position, Mr. Bargeron said
it may be in the position to
provide additional salary
increases in '07-'08.
"Some years we weren't
able to give as much as
others," he said. "Now
we've reached a point
where our goals are being
met and we are doing
exactly what we said we
would do."
Vanesa Tillman, presi-
dent of the St. Lucie Coun-
ty Classroom Teachers
Association, the teacher's
union, said board and dis-


trict officials have been
true to their word.
"They said that salaries
will be the top priority, and
they're not just talking,
they're .modeling what
they said," she said. "We
anticipate we will continue
this same level of collabot-
rative, open dialogue." !T
Sue Ranew, the district's
assistant superintendent
for human resources, said
there is indeed a concerted
effort on the part of the
board and the bargaining
units to make salaries a top
priority.
"This is evidence of that
commitment to the
employees, both current
and future," she said. "The
more salary we can put out
there for employees, the
better our chances are of
retaining current employ.-
ees and attracting new
ones."

"We have a local com-

That said, a state survey

Williams estimates that

'Doolittle was kneeling at
the base of her highchair,

'"I thought it was odd


because she normally

interpreter Ellen Bragg.
The 10-year-old boy,
who is deaf, immediately

It was for his heroic

Georgia fire puts haze over Port St. Lucie
A fire that has burned more than 100 square miles in
Georgia had an impact on the Treasure Coast.
On April 29, the fire caused a haze to settle over Port
St. Lucie and residents could smell the faraway fire.
The wind direction brought the smell and smoke to
the area. Winds were blowing out of the north that
day.

St. Lucie County considers
pet shelter for hurricanes

County and school officials are working on an
agreement for a possible pet shelter during a hurri-
cane.
Officials are looking at West Gate K-8 in Port St.
Lucie as a possible location for a shelter. If an agree-
i ment is reached, it would be the first pet shelter in St.
Lucie County.
Many residents, especially the elderly, do not evacu-
ate to shelters because pets are not allowed. A pet
shelter would allow residents to ride out a hurricane
in a hardened building and know their pets are safe.
Schools throughout St. Lucie County are already
used as American Red Cross tiurricane shelters. At
West Gate, pets could be housed in the gymnasium,
while residents stay in another part of the school.

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

Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Services asking for public's help


BY RITA HART
Staff writer
May is National Speech
and Hearing Month, the
perfect time to let the
public know they can
assist in making life better
for the deaf and hard of
hearing.
"We are at a point where
we are desperate for hear-
ing aids," said Rick Kottler,
executive director of Deaf
and Hard of Hearing Ser-
vices of the Treasure
Coast.
During the month of
May, several Treasure
Coast businesses will have
drop boxes for hearing aid
donations in St. Lucie,
Martin, Indian River and
Okeechobee Counties.
"We take them in any
shape or form," said Mr.
Kottler. "The ones we can't
use, we send to a manu-
facturer in Michigan, and
they pay us a few dollars
for the ones they cannot
refurbish. We put that
money in an account that
allows us to buy refur-
bished hearing aids."
Mr. Kottler explained
that his organization has
two programs for refur-
bished hearing aids. The
first is for adults who are
at poverty level as defined
by the U.S. Department of
Labor.
If the adults qualify, Dr.
Beth Royer, a Treasure
Coast audiologist, donates
her time, helps refurbish
the hearing aids the
organization receives, and
does all the testing at
"real, real reduced rates,"
said Mr. Kottler.
"The cost could end up
being $500 versus any-


where from $1,000 to
$5,000 that it would nor-
mally cost to fit an adult
with hearing aids," said
Mr. Kottler.
The second program
involves a children's hear-
ing aid fund, which is a
separate amount of
money set aside by the
organization for this pur-
pose.
'"It's for kids that might
otherwise fall through the
cracks," said Mr. Kottler.
"Our first clients were a
working father and non-
working mother who had
two children and not a lot
of money. We consider
each family on a case-by-
case basis. We pay for
everything, and Dr. Royer
donates her time," he said.
In addition to these serv-
ices, the Deaf and Hard of
Hearing Services is the
regional distribution cen-
ter for a "phones-on-loan"
program which provides
telephones that assist the
deaf, blind and speech-
impaired.
The organization also
offers monthly support
group meetings for those
with hearing loss. The
group meets the fourth
Friday of every month at
9:30 a.m. at the Deaf and
Hard of Hearing Services'
offices in Port St. Lucie.
Mr. Kottler said the
organization will begin a
sign-language class on
Mon., May 7, at 6:30 p.m.
for 12 weeks. Cost of the
classes is $100 total, plus
$20 for the class book.
At present, the following
locations will have drop
off boxes for the donation
of hearing aids:
*United Way offices at 50

Tax burden placed on the poor
The St. Lucie County Commissioners, Joe Smith, Doug
Coward, Paula Lewis, Charles Grande, and Chris Craft
have just passed an animal licensing fee causing the
poor to carry the burden of a tax, which should have
been placed equally on the rich ranch owners and
farmers of St. Lucie County.
Why have the commissioners decided to tax the poor
who have spayed, and neutered their pets?
These people are not causing pet overpopulation,
which should be the purpose of the licensing law. The
law should stop pet overpopulation.
The commissioners passed this unfair law for owners
of sterilized pets.
But, the commissioners have exempted the people who
cause pet overpopulation. They are allowing ranchers,
agricultural landowners, and breeders to overbreed cats
and dogs, and cause the tax expense in St. Lucie County.
Why have the commissioners exempted the rich, and
put the tax burden on the poor, who don't contribute to
pet overpopulation?
Remember this when you are ready to vote.

More clean up necessary
My neighbors and I are very pleased with the City of
Port St. Lucie, the city management, and in particular,
with Chris Cooper, for all he is doing to clean up the litter
in our neighborhoods.
Might I suggest that some of the commercial establish-
ments, like fast food restaurants such as McDonald's,
have a crew of their employees go out and pick up some
of the trash that they are distributing all over the neigh- '
borhood.
I would say that probably 8.0 percent of the trash comes
from those kinds of establishments, and commercial
entities.
It would be great if they could do that. Other people are
doing it as families, and larger companies are doing it.
With all of the money that the fast food restaurants
make, I don't think it would make a bit of difference if
they sent four or five people out once a month to clean
up the highways.

Where can I go?
I have a lot to say. I am a senior, and I have been here a
long time, 31 years in Port St. Lucie.
I think its horrible what they do the people.
They are just anxious to put up hotels, and shelter all.

.the developers, and put the poor old people out.
Where else are we going to go? I worry about that. I
don't have children of my own.
Where will I go to live? I could never buy a house. I
could never afford to pay a high rent.
Maybe some day they might put me out of my house.
I don't know why people sit back, and worry about a
hotel coming up.
In the newspaper headline, it says that the hotel search
is down to four firms. We don't need all those hotels; we
can't even get out on the highway, with all of the people
that are here.
They wish we people would go away, back to where we
came from. I've been contributing to the economy in
this town for 31 years.
For another thing, the powers that be don't care what
they do, what is this getting to be? Russia, or Germany,
someplace, where you are not allowed to talk, or you
might go to jail?
It s a really terrible situation.
I think the people that have been voted in should try to
help everybody.
The lower, and the middle class are "going to get it." -
These young people who don't take an interest, and try
to help in their own town ought to realize that they may
not have a town to live in.
I don't think I'll be around that long, but I just hope
somebody pays attention to what's going on.

Port St. Lucie is a disgrace
I've been here on the Treasure Coast for almost 25 years.
I have always been glad not to live in Port St. Lucie '
anymore, but even more so now.
I just took a ride through there for the past two hours,
doing:some business.


Boy you want to talk about a scumbag city, my God! I've
never seen so many aliens, illegal probably, and so much
trash and garbage, it's just unbelievable what this city
looks like. I'm sorry what this town looks like. It never was
a city, and never will be. It amazes me.
The idiots that sit on the city council should wake up a
little bit. This place is an absolute disgrace.
Thank God I don't live there anymore. I'm so glad to be
living in Martin County.

Discrimination against non-computer users
My problem is with TV programs that have information,
etc., and game shows, such as Wheel of Fortune, that, in
order to participate, you must have a computer.
I am 82 years old, and do not have a computer, but I do
have a telephone.
This is discrimination, as far as I am concerned.
I'm not alone, Only two of my 12 friends have comput-.
ers.
It is just not right. It is discrimination, just because we
do not have a computer.

Earth Day
Another Earth Day has passed, and I don't know that
things are getting any better.
Most of the major scientific organizations, like the
National Academy of Science, have put out statements
that humans are causing a lot; if not most, of global .
warming.
It's all very gloomy to think about. But, it's not hopelessly
Tanks to all of the people who strive daily to make the
earth a better place.
We can all help our planet. Environmentalism doesn't *

Fix the problem
Once again we are facing the dilemma of what to do in
relation to children shooting children in our schools, and
again, we are hearing all the hype of the psychological
theories that continually fail to bring us a solution or
even an understandable explanation to the terrible situa-
tion we are finding to be repeated in varying parts of our
country. Years ago, I was visiting with an European citi-
zen, and we talked about some of the problems df the
times
.His analogy of the problems was this "In Europe we
see a problem, we find the causes, and try to correct it.
You people in the U.S.A. find a problem, and you throw
money at it, and hope it will go away."
This seems to be a pretty good explanation of our past
efforts. With a shooting in a school, we are inundated
with all kinds of why's and who's and how's, and of course
a totally minute by minute accounting of the happening
as nearly as the facts, or the imagination of the news
media can te] it.
When are the powers that be going to realize the com-
plexity of how we have deteriorated so far in our society,
and then do the things necessary to solve these prob-
lems?
It is so easy to say the blame is the parents the teachers,
the modern ways of society, etc.


One truth is that it takes a neighborhood to raise a
child, which is to say that influences are of prime impor-
tance.
The Bible tells us) "You shall fear the Lord thy God." Is
not also to say that you love and respect?
And how do we as a people learn respect and responsi-
bility? Example and discipline are the major tools of
coaches in team training what else are we doing with
the raising of our following generations but team train-,
ing?
That also makes the people of all generations coaches
in one manner or another. So there is a critical need for
us to accept the realization of the effects the examples we
set have on growing minds, and also to accept the
responsibility we have for what we teach those develop-
ing youngsters.
The greatest example of influences on the public,
young and old, is what the news media and the television
and moviemakers present for human consumption. .
If there is to be any correction of the permanence to
the inhumane actions of school shootings, and that kind
of thing, we have to get to the root of the problem, which
is the responsibility and respect of individuals.
So long as the news media and television and movie
producers inundate the public with the kind of "informa-
'tion and entertainment" we have seen over the years,.
with no responsibility for the effects their presentations


have on society, we will continue to have these "monkey.
see-monkey-do" terrible examples of irresponsible, -
inhumane actions.
Now, your perpetrators of these deteriorations will
scream out that I want to deprive them of their civil
rights, and their freedom of speech, etc,
Well, we do have traffic and other laws that are a con-
trolling factor toward preventing us from killing our-
selves, and others.
Why not have similar controls to keep the influences of
news, television and movies from teaching the young-
sters improper conduct that also kills and injures others
if those influences continue to fail to accept their respond
sibility for the .effects their presentations have oi
humanity?
Yes, people can turn off the television, and they do not
have to attend those movies of violence and mayhemr.
That is what responsible and mature people do, but th6
growing minds of persons not yet with a full sense of valk
ues are not going to ignore, or avoid, detrimental influF
ences.
They will think such actions are acceptable because-
they have seen it done, or have heard about it.
Until the powers that be do something to stop thes6
terrible influences, we will continue to see our innocent

From page A6
always mean sacrifice.
A fluorescent light bulb can save around $50 in electrici-
ty over its lifetime, while saving natural resources and
reducing pollution.
Reusable canvas shopping bags are much sturdier than
plastic, and also save resources and landfill space.
Plus, the Wall Street Journal says plastic bags cost the
industry $4 billion a year, so they're not really free.
The main thing about environmentalism is not taking
anything for granted; there's always a cost.
The more we think about the consequences of our
actions, the more we can help our planet, and the.less
gloomy things will be.

Give her a break

Regarding Nancy Pelosi going to Syria, that person ought
to remember that a week ago or so before, two Republi-
cans went over there and spoke to their president.
If he wants to talk about terrorism so much, why doesn't
he read Jimmy Carter's book of peace, not apartheid, to
find out who has been terrorizing people for the past fifty
years, and we've been helping them.

Just a couple of comments

First, in response to the rant about fast food places not
getting your order right because they can't understand
English well, try to be an elderly, sick patient in one of
these nursing homes, or hospitals and tiry to get your
message across to the CNA's, and some nurses and
doctors, about what is bothering you, and what you really
need.
They don't understand English. I don't understand how
they can get a job in a hospital or a nursing home. That's
one of the worst things that I can think of. Being sick, and
needing help, and you can't get across to the person who
is taking care of you what is wrong, or what you need.
Secondly, on television a couple of weeks ago, there was
a clip about a bunch new GIs, men and women, ready to
go to Iraq and fight.
The only thing keeping them back was that they didn't
have a good credit rating.
That's the most ridiculous thing I have every hear of.
The guys with good credit ratings, who fight for all our
lives, have to go and fight, and fight, and get killed or
maimed, while these men and women get to stay in the
states because they don't have a good credit rating.
I've never heard of such a thing.

Don't throw the money

I work atWinn Dixie on Indrio Road.
I don't like it when customers throw their money on the
counter, especially when it's the elderly, because as a
person who works in retail, we cannot throw it right back
at them.


I think it is very rude. Don't people realize that it is more
polite to hand the money to the person?
It is bothersome when, after handing over the money,
they begin to dig around in their pockets, and ignore the
question of "Do you have the correct change."
They ignore you, and when you start to ring the sale up,
they say, "Oh, I have the change," or they wait until it has
already been rung up, and then say they've got the
change.
This has always bothered me, and I just wanted to say
something about it.

Cement, not sand

Why not use cement instead of sand on our beaches, like
Wabasso, and Palm Beach have done?
The cement stays there, and there's no kick back.
Speaking of kick back, how much is there on those
orange barrels you see on U.S. 1? Boy oh boy!

It's spending, not taxes

This is in regard to the property tax issue.
There have been many comments about the taxes, and
the millages, etc. But, the real issue isn't so much taxes, it's
spending.
If the amount of money the government has available is
limited, and they only spend what they have available, our
taxes would be reduced by eliminating ridiculous spend-
ing.
Every time I drive down U.S. 1 though Sebastian, and
Indian River County, I marvel at the number of govern-
ment employees who are doing gardening work in the
medians.
I'm sure these medians were built by well-meant federal
and state grants
for highway beautification, but nobody ever thought
about who was going to take care of them.
What is ridiculous is that I am sure there are many
landscaping and gardening companies that would be
more than happy to take care of this.
They wouldn't have to worry about paying the huge
pensions, and fringe benefits, etc. that government
employees receive.
The waste is really ridiculous.
If we looked at what we are spending, then maybe we
wouldn't be being taxed so high.
A lot of people talk about how much we ask for. All I ask
for is good, safe roads, safe fire protection, and a clean
environment.
That's all I need, I don't need a lot of other frills.
Let's think about spending, before we think about taxes.

Let's try tolerance

In response to the "prosecute her" article that was
written about Nancy Pelousi going to Syria, I would like to
comment that for every Jew/Christian it must be remem-
bered that Syria is not truly an enemy.
It is the birthplace of many of the concepts, and some of.
the wisdoms, beliefs, and cultural practices that are in


today's world, as in America, which originate in Syria.
My comment is that we should re-evaluate our own
belief system towards the Arab countries. They are not all
our enemies.
Therefore, we should attempt, finally, to try to make allies
and develop friendships, instead of wars, and causing so
much animosity. ,
This is getting people in America absolutely nowhere,
and it is certainly hurting very, very much the Arab coun-
tries.
Instead, let's take time to study ancient history, and the
ancient places, called Syria, Iraq and Iran, from which
most of our belief systems originate.

Even.nice people have rants

I look forward to reading the Hometown News every
Friday.
Let the records show that I am truly a wonderful person
(just ask me), but even I have a couple of "rants."
Why do people insist on talking in theatres during the
presentation? It's bad enough at the movies, but even
more annoying when at a live play. I wonder if the actors
like it.
Secondly, Disney Word may be the happiest place on
earth, but it is also probably the germiest.
It puzzles me that the rest rooms all over the park do not
provide hot water for proper hand washing.

New technology for dumb 'n dumber

I am constantly amazed that people have bought into
giving every child with the ability of speech their own cell
phone.
We used to be upset about high school graduates that
couldn't manage their earnings enough to make purchases
at the grocery store (revelations of New Math).
Now this text messaging thing is coming back on us. A
generation that can't spell. Text messages are being done
in a kids' shorthand on the newest models of cell phones
(heck, mine only lets me dial a number and call someone...
no taking pictures, and no playing music).
This "shorthand speak" started in chat rooms on the
Internet, because young kids needed to fake out their
youthful age, and lack of spelling abilities by using a
shorthand talk.
Adult chatters thought they were on the Internet chatting
to a person that couldn't type, when actually, it was a kid
trying to find out what it would be like when his voice
changed.
Back to the phones, and text messaging. I have night-
mares of getting a postcard from my future grandchild, on
vacation that starts off R U OK U R M F F G.
My message to parents is forget saving baby-sitting
money with a cell phone, and don't have kids unless you
want to watch them!
If you have kids because you didn't know what caused
the "Happy Face," grow up, and use the old
eyeball method for knowing where your kids are.
If they're too young to be out on their own, don't let
them out of eyesight.
Binoculars don't count.

From page Al
Rivers Edge. Teachers use
projection cameras to
show students examples
of writings that score a 3.5
or better on the FCATs.
Ms. Caudill said the
school will continue with
current programs to keep
students on the right
track with their writing
skills.
"I know our teachers
and students work very
hard," she said. "I'm real-
ly, really proud and excit-
ed. It's a great school."
St. Lucie County
Schools Superintendent
Michael Lannon said the
district will continue to
strive for improved
scores. He is impressed
with the writing scores,
despite obstacles the dis-
trict faced during the
2006-2007 school year.
"We constantly work
towards ever-increasing
improvements," Mr. Lan-
non said. "Given the fact
that in this year alone, we
have added 3,000 new
students and hired more
than 660 new teachers,
this may be our best year
ever in writing. Enormous
credit goes to school staffs
and leaders, and to the
district staff in support of
this great effort."
He added that testing
can be difficult with every
child in the district com-
ing into school with dif-
ferent experiences and
backgrounds. Mr. Lannon
said nearly 22,500 stu-
dents live in poverty in St.
Lucie. County. There are
more than 38,800. stu-
dents in the district.
"In St. Lucie County, we
, are working every day to
raise expectations and
each child's ability to
meet these higher stan-
dards," Mr. Lannon said.
"We have come a long
way and still have a long
way to go. This effort,
total community


improvement through
education, requires all
families, -local govern-
ment and social and civic
organizations to come
together for our youth."

a neighbor for help.
Sgt. Lumpkin said the
neighbor relayed informa-
tion to police and rescue
workers from J.J.
"I'm very proud of him,"
Mrs. Doolittle said about
her stepson. "He just
thought fast and reacted."
Brianna began breathing
on her own at the house,


and was taken to St. Lucie
Medical Center for a day
and then to Palms West
Hospital in Loxahatchee.
It was initially feared that
Brianna would suffer from
brain damage from the
lack of oxygen.
"We believe she was
without air for at least
three to five minutes," Sgt.


Lumpkin said. "At first,
everybody was happy she
was alive, then there was
the possibility of brain
damage. The neighbor
and the police depart-
ment were all concerned,
and in the end, the child is
healthy and alive."
The Doolittles moved to
Port St. Lucie about a year


ago from Long Island,
New York. The family is
grateful Brianna is OK.
"We had to watch her for
a while, but she's doing
fine," Mrs. Doolittle said.
"There have been no
problems so far."
J.J., a fifth-grader at Oak
Hammock K-8 who enjoys
football and hanging out


with friends, thanked
everybody involved with
the rescue. He signed his
speech, which was trans-
lated for the crowded City
Council chambers.
"It's great to see a broth-
er with his sister, who is
smiling and healthy,"
Police Chief John Skinner
said.

TRAVEL



How about taking a great trip to South Africa?


I never really knew I
:wanted to go to South
Africa.
It all came about one
night as the midnight
deadline approached to use
25,000 frequent flier miles
or lose them.
Since my personal rule is
'to never use frequent flier
miles for anything mun-
dane, and knowing that
i25,000 miles could get me
anywhere within any
continent, I suddenly said,
"I want a ticket from Cairo
'to Johannesburg."
I did?
S.Suddenly I had a ticket to
a place I never even knew I
wanted to visit.
Initially I planned to tour
Cape Town, the wine region
and drive the garden route.
But then I realized I'd be
tired after leading a trip to
Egypt, so I chose a peaceful
week of safaris instead.
I planned to stay
overnight in Johannesburg
and then fly out to some of
the best game parks and.
lodges in the world.
Cape Town would have to
wait.
It was a good plan until
my flight was delayed in
Cairo, causing missed
flights and lost luggage for
three days.
Also, I had picked up the
early stages of the flu. So I
was thrilled when I finally
landed at the tiny airport of
Nelspuit, considered the
gateway to the South
African bush.
After two stressful days, I
.could have wept at the
peaceful beauty surround-
:ing me.
I certainly wasn't in Cairo
anymore!
Then I was driven to the
cozy Crocodile Country
Inn, where I was given the
bridal suite and treated like
a queen.
After a day of down time,
,I was ready to explore.
Fritz, who owns Gogo
.PhansiTours, took me on
;what's called the "panoram-
ic tour" in his BMW.
Everything was so lush as
,we visited charming places
'like Hazyview, Pilgrims
,Rest, Blyde River Canyon,
'Gods Window and Sudwala
Caves.
Fritz was a kind, knowl-
edgeable guide whom I'd
highly recommend.
Besides the normal
,sights, he noted how
fascinated I was with the
.colorful black townships.
So, the next day on our way
'to Kruger National Park, he
purposely took me through
many of them.
Next time I must visit
some of the surrounding
tribal villages and tour
Soweto.
Eventually we arrived at
Kruger and I liked every-
thing I saw, from the
riverside cabins, to the
tents, to restaurants and
stores. A stay there looked


SUSAN DREW
Travel columnist


like a fun, affordable way to
go on safari.
The only problem with
Kruger is the roads are
paved, restricting you from
going off-road in search of
animals.
But let me tell you, I saw
some of the best game of
my whole trip that after-
noon.
Fritz and I quickly saw 12
species including impala,
giraffe, elephants, mon-
keys, warthogs and zebra.
Then we saw a safari
vehicle stopped up ahead
watching two female lions
dozing on the side of the
road. I just knew there were
cubs and suddenly three
walked right out in front of
us. Eventually, their moth-
ers followed, but not before
we'd spent a half hour
watching them. As we left
the park and headed to my
lodge, we were even graced
by a leopard crossing our
path.
My home for two nights
was Inyati Game Lodge. It
was a charming place with
lovely canopied beds and
big bathrooms.
The staff was friendly and
the dinners in the sandy
boma (campfire area) were
superb.
Mostly it was the eclectic
group of people from
Argentina, England and
.Denmark that made
everything so much fun.
We saw lots of animals in
two days: wildebeest,
crocodiles, leopard,
giraffes, zebra and buffalo.
The most amazing
experience was when our
safari vehicle lumbered up
onto a huge rock. Our
tracker had seen two male
lions approaching.
Warned to stay still, we
were fine until two females
followed and circled our
open vehicle within inches.
We all gasped, but eventu-
ally let out a sigh of relief
when we realized they just
' wanted to sun themselves
on the rock.
Then 10 cubs of various
ages came out from the
bushes to join their parents.
So, for the next hour, we sat
circled by our lazy lion
family, taking photos and
being totally enthralled by
the experience.
Soon it was time to leave
Inyati and head to my next

lodge called Sabi Sabi. It
was an exquisite place with
huge suites, great service
and elegant restaurants all
overlooking the bush.
As I was eating lunch, I
introduced myself to a
couple and found out that
Renee was a local travel
agent and thus a great
resource.
We were assigned the
same game drives and soon
became inseparable.
On our first drive we saw
elephants, leopards and a
large pride of lions before
we ended after dark.
This was my first night-
time safari and it was
fascinating.
Over the next few days we
saw giraffe, elephants,
zebra, many birds. My
personal lion count blos-
somed to 44 for the week!
Next I stayed at Lion
Sands, another beautiful
lodge in another gorgeous
setting. Keep in mind there
are many lodges to choose
from all with exotic names
such as Mala Mala, Ngala,
Londolozi and Djuma. It's
up to you.
As my time in South
Africa was ending, I was
getting sicker.
Generously, Renee and
her husband insisted I
cancel my hotel and stay
with them in Johannes-
burg.
Still I had to drag myself
onto the plane the next day
for my long flight home,
praying there would be no
more delays or lost luggage.
There weren't.
When I think back on the
wonderful things I saw in
South Africa and the kind
people I met, I can't wait to
return.
I am proud that I didn't
lt' illness, lost luggage or
delayed flights ruin my
journey.
Mostly I am pleased that I
listened to that inner voice
that said one night, "I want
a ticket from Cairo to


card bills. In worst case scenarios, people
ruin their credit because they can't afford
to make payments on the bills they racked
up while traveling."
CreditCardSearchEngine.com provides
its customers with a database of major
credit cards to choose from and apply for.
The site has cards of all types based on
people's varying needs. Frequent travelers,
for example, can search through a wide
variety of travel reward cards while indi-
viduals with bad credit can find special-
ized cards to fit their needs. The variety of
cards on the site, says McElveen, perfectly
compliments individuals who plan to use
credit for summer travel.
"The more educated a person is about
their card options, the. less chance they
have for running into credit trouble,"
states McElveen. "With the right card in
hand summer travel can be exactly what
it's supposed to be -- stress-free, pleasura-
ble and safe."

(Syndicated News) Summer travel often
means more than pleasant days spent
lounging in the sun -- for most individu-
als,, it means an increase in credit card
bills. This is especially true of families.
Some financial experts estimate the aver-
age family of four spends $1,491 on a one-
week vacation, most of which is placed on
credit cards. While using credit cards for
travel has traditionally been labeled as a
smart move by some as it reduces risks
associated with cash and traveler's checks
-- many individuals end up paying their
original travel expenses many times over
through the accompanying interest that
develops from unpaid bills.
"Summer vacations are somewhat simi-
lar to holiday spending," says David
McElveen, spokesperson for
CreditCardSearchEngine.com. "There's
that 'credit hangover' effect people
place more on their cards than they
should, then they come home and end up
paying high interest rates on their credit

"The person who gave us
the information had
obtained the information
that a robbery was going to
happen," Detective Black
said. "That person had
heard of it, but wasn't spe-
cific about the time or who
was going to commit the
act. Our suspects keep
changing throughout the
investigation."
Because the tipster also
told detectives the men
would be armed, the Port
St. Lucie Police SWAT team
responded to Checkers to
wait for the suspects,
Detective Black said.
"SWAT was concealed in
different places and they
did a good job protecting

She said residents can
come to the house if they
are having trouble manag-
ing their symptoms, such
as when the pain becomes
unmanageable at home.
Others can come to the
house if they need care
and are home alone, with
no family nearby. In these
cases, Mrs. Gerntrup said
the patients stay at the
house until another place,
such as a nursing home,
can be found.
"As long as a person
meets the criteria, they
can stay," Mrs. Gerntrup
said.
Hospice offers around-
the-clock nursing care for
patients and grief counsel-
ing for families. In a survey


undergoing chemotherapy
treatment would not be
considered for Hospice,
but a cancer patient.who is
untreatable would be eli-
gible for services.
Aileen Pruitt, wife of
state Senator Ken Pruitt,
spoke at the Hospice
House dedication. She
talked about of the won-
derful experiences her
family has had with the
organization when" her
parents, were sick and
dying.
"Hospice doesn't just
take care of patients, they
take care of all of us," Mrs.
Pruitt said. "They truly
understand what our
needs are,"

Civilization needs the
total community to do
their part in keeping socie-
ty from this bent toward
extinction.
Society disciplines law
breakers after they do
wrong.
We need to return proper
discipline to the hands of
the parents, and the
schools.
The experiment of the
sixties and beyond of not
controlling children, and
letting them do their own
thing is another example
of failure in human devel-
opment.
Remember the truth,
spare the rod and spoil the
child.
The masses of popula-
tion are good people, but
the perpetrators of irre-
sponsible actions are that
way because they have
been exposed to deterio-
rating influences.
Until those influences
are corrected we will con-
tinue to see the innocent,

Fix the problem, and
there will not be so many

Wake up America

It always rubs me the
wrong way when the pub-
lic writes, or says, that we
"have the best system..." of
whatever here.
These people have never
been anywhere else. I have
lived for years all over the
world, due to my hus-
band's job. And let me tell
you, from schools, to
health care to public serv-
ices, vacations, wages,
unemployment and retire-
ment packages, we don't
compare to the rest of the
Western world.
My absolute worst com-
plaint is about the post
office! Not only do they
take five days to get a letter
from here to Tampa regu-
larly (the same distance in
Europe is overnight, or one
day at worst), but they
don't know how to read.

rected mail these last five

*Identical overseas
Christmas cards (card,

A Port St. Lucie post-
card was returned to me
the other day because the
printer's name and address
were in the complete left
hand corner of the card-
totally outside that little
strip that you are not sup-
posed to write in-and
"the machine read that in

So who are these over-
paid, illiterate postal
employees who are also
completely ignorant of
geography?'
The schools have been a
scandal since the 50's,
social promotion, and "No
Child Left Behind" are the
absolutely stupidest poli-
cies one could ever hope to
institute.

With the same amount

one was saying (again
without any foundation)
that the U.S. is the most
compassionate and toler-
ant country in the world.
Really? What are we doing
to immigrants right now,
and have been doing with
each new wave?
Irish were spat upon,
and kept out of decent
workplaces, Italians were
detested, and now it is the
turn of the Latinos.
With each new ethnic
wave the U.S. specifically
has made laws against
them since 1779.
Compare that to the
open borders of Europe.

ence, and the other a
strange philosophy of the
same type as flat earth
arguments.
You simply are totally
ignorant of your own his-
tory. And that includes the
much-vaunted "freedom
of religion."
There is no such thing in
this country, it is almost as
Puritan and restrictive as it
was a long time ago.
No alcohol on Sunday
before noon, medieval
abortion laws, 21-year-old
alcohol laws (but you can
send them to Iraq to get
killed and maimed), the
"one-man-one-vote" fairy
tale (have you looked at
how our district is so gerry-
mandered that any Euro-
pean would scream bloody
murder!)?
Granting tax-free status
to religious establishments
is the absolute opposite of
separation of church and
state! It is subsidizing the
Church by the state.
And, you know what the
reaction is against this
tragedy at Virginia Tech?
People went out in even
bigger numbers this week-

more guns.
This country needs to

Should taxpayers
pay?

Regarding the proposed
trauma center at Lawn-
wood, taxpayers should be
aware of Lawnwood's
method of collecting pay-
ment to cover the cost of
nonpaying patients.
Through personal expe-
rience, I found that Lawn-
wood charged approxi-
mately twice as much for
the exact same services as
St. Lucie Medical center, its
sister hospital in Port St.
Lucie.
The services provided
were to dispense medica-
tion, which had been pre-
scribed by an outside doc-
tor.
When I asked Lawnwood
why their charges were so


high, I was told that they
treated so many nonpay-
ing patients that Blue
Cross permitted them to
charge more.
They called it "cost shift-
ing," which allowed them
to charge more from pay-
ing customers to help
cover the cost of Lawn-
wood's nonpaying emer-
gency room/trauma center
patients. It appears there
is a number of them.
St. Lucie County taxpay-
ers would also assume the
responsibility of paying for
nonpaying patients from
Indian River, Martin, and
Okeechobee counties.
In view of the above, it is
easy to understand why
Lawnwood is pushing so
hard for a trauma center,
even offering to pay .the
costs of voting on the
issue.
Should taxpayers even
be asked to fund the oper-
ations of a private compa-
ny, which will reap the
profits, while the taxpayers
assume the burden of pay-
ing for nonpayers?

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".


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


S.
Us\
!i


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

same.

State insurance program

is in need of more children


Enrollment is down
in St. Lucie County
for Healthy Kids
BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE Nearly
22,500 students in St. Lucie
County live in poverty, yet few
are covered under the state's
health care plan.
Officials with Healthy Kids of
St. Lucie County are trying to
get the word out about the pro-
gram to increase enrollment.
Only 3,860 children in the
county are enrolled at the pres-
ent time.
"A lot of people work and still
can't afford insurance," said R..
Danny Pierre-Louis, communi-
ty liaison for Healthy Kids of St.
Lucie County. "A majority of
kids in the county would quali-
fy."
Children are eligible for
Healthy Kids if the family
makes up to 200 percent of the
federal poverty guideline and
are not covered by insurance,
including Medicaid.
Under the guidelines, a fami-
ly of three is considered living
in poverty if they make $17,170.
To qualify for Healthy Kids, a
family of three can make up to
$34,340.
Ms. Pierre-Louis said those
children in St. Lucie County
schools. who are on free or
reduced lunch will generally
qualify for Healthy Kids. There
are 20,676 students on free or
reduced lunch, according to
the St. Lucie County School
District.
Healthy Kids covers health


and dental care for a $20
monthly premium for those
'who meet the poverty guide-
line. Ms. Pierre-Louis said for
those families that exceed the
income levels for coverage can
pay the full premium of $120 a
month, which includes dental
care. She added that Blue Cross
Blue Shield provides the cover-
age in St. Lucie County.
Children's Services Council of
St. Lucie County supports the
drive to increase Healthy Kids
enrollment. The nonprofit
group is, helping spread the
word about the program.
"We want every child to have
health care," said Kathryn
Basile, executive director of the
Children's Services Council. "It
is less expensive to keep
healthy kids well. By offering
this opportunity, families that
are not insured have the
chance to afford insurance."
Ms. Pierre-Louis said she is
available to help families in St.
Lucie County apply for Healthy
Kids. Assistance is also avail-
able in English, Spanish and
Creole.
"We're trying our best to
reach every segment of the
population," Ms. Pierre-Louis
said. "A majority of kids in our
county would qualify. People
should apply regardless of
what they think the outcome
will be."
Residents can apply online or,
can pick up an application at
any public school in the coun-
ty.
For more information, call
Ms. Pierre-Louis at (772) 626-
5616, or visit

Davee Bryan: A

New Englander

sings the blues


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Davee Bryan is a ram-
blin' man. This native of a
small town in New
Hampshire has lived in
Kentucky, the Florida
Keys. Texas, California
and the United Arab Emi-
rates, but two years ago
he retuned to Florida and
now can be found every
Thursday night at the
Thirsty Turtle in Port St.
Lucie, playing what he
calls "a mixed bag of
emotional debris."
Mr. Bryan's musical
defies easy categoriza-
tion, as he himself
admits.
"It's a real mixed bag,"
he says. "I work in a lot of
original material. Close
to half the show is origi-
nal. I mix in a few classic
acoustic rock covers and
a whole mess of blues."
In his career, Mr. Bryan
has opened for or per-
, formed with legends like


Deacon Jones, John Lee
Hooker and Joe "Guitar
Hughes," who he calls a
mentor and friend.
"I have had the fortune
of leaving a small town in
New England and per-
forming with some of the
people I used to read
about," he says. "Music
has been very good to
me.
How did the small-
town boy from West Stew-
artson, N.H., grow up to
be a blues artist?
"My mom always had a
radio going while she was
in the kitchen," he says.
"There was always music
in the house. On Friday
nights, "Ozzie and Harri-
et" was on and I loved the
last five minutes, when
Ricky Nelson and his
band would play. I was a
big Johnny Horton fan. In
the mid '60s, I finally got
the Beatles bug and read
interviews with people
like George Harrison and
Eric Clapton, who men-

tioned John Lee Hooker
and Muddy Waters.
"We had to drive to
another town to a record
store and I started getting
their music and listening.
It was such a revelation
and such a change from
the basic AM mix you
heard over the radio. I
started listening to
Chicago-style blues. It
spoke to me and I heard it
all through Harrison and
Clapton first. Then I went
back to the source. I loved
the themes of the solitary
guy, me and my guitar
against the world. I gravi-
tated toward it and I still


enjoy playing the blues
the most."
Today, the 51-year-old
is excited about the
Thirsty Turtle gig and
about his new CD, "Is
Anyone Driving the Bus?"
"It's really neat when
you get to a place as sup-
portive as The Turtle," he
says. "They give you free.
rein. I don't travel with a
set list; if I know it, I play
it. Every evening is differ-
ent, although I'll almost
certainly play "Here
Comes the Sun." It's one
of my all-time favorites.

In the end, though, it's
the blues that keep call-

Scopes
From page BI
You are more than fair to
everyone. This has been
proven time and time again.
You have two of the most
wonderful possessions any-
one can have. It's a great
heart and spirit. Nothing can
hold these back for long.

Scorpio-Od. 23-Nov. 21
Two of your greatest gifts are
eternal optimism and the
ability to make wise choices.
When you have choices to
make and you let the
answers come from within
you are using these gifts and
the probability of success is
greatly enhanced. This light
within you continues to
shine and brighten the
world and others around
you. You are a wonderful
reflection of the good, posi-
tive potential in life. Keep
asking for divine guidance
and everything you desire
will find its way to you.

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
When you surrender your
lower will to the higher and
let the universe work for you
and through you, you are
capable of making a lot of
good things happen. You
must continually place high
value on your life and tal-
ents. This focus, along with
clear vision of how you want
to serve, will continue to
bring you the great spiritual


rewards that reflect your
true nature. Polish your
goals and dreams like you
would an apple and you will
continue to reap a great har-
vest in life.

Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Go with your hunches. Your
inner guidance is stronger
than the outer when you are
listening to, trusting and act-
ing on it. There are new
adventures on the way.
Make time for fun and joy as
well. You don't have to be
strong all the time, Make
quality time for yourself.
When you have this bal-
anced approach to life, you
are unstoppable. This is the
good stuff. All the money in
the world will not make you
happy if your spirit and heart
are drained or hungry. Be
good to you. You deserve it.

Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
-You are truly amazing. You
have a deep well of energy,
skill and motivation that
never runs dry. You must
amaze yourself sometimes
with this awesome inner
strength. This is your age,
you know. Your creative
juices are flowing stronger
all the time. Neptune in
Aquarius continues to give
you a sense of deep know-
ing. Keep on going with and
trusting it. One of the things
that make you happy is to
make others happy. This is
what justifies your life and
gives you an edge. You truly
make a difference.

Courage in the face of
adversity is one of your
greatest virtues. When the
chips are down you keep on
keeping on. The spirit guid-
ance knows this and saved
you for last in the zodiac.
You are the closer. You bring
home the rewards. Yours is
a job well done. Let your co-
workers know how much
they mean to you as well.
You are a team player and
want everyone to win. Yours
is a life of healthy choices.
Take time to celebrate your
victories often and life will
continually bless you in
mighty ways.

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

This week's column is
dedicated to one of
God's most special
people: mothers.
Being a mom is one of
the hardest and most
important jobs. And it is
just that, a job.
Eventually, you get back
what you put in, but
doesn't it seem like a long,
hard haul sometimes?
I've done the job and
now I have four beautiful,
caring, loving, competent
and successful adults who
think I'm the greatest.
Gone are the days when
they didn't think I was
capable of crossing the
street or tying my
shoelaces. You see, it does
pay off.
This column on Moth-
er's Day is for the men and
children out there. If they
haven'tread my column
yet, show them this one.
I've heard some men
say, "She's not my moth-
er," about their wives. That
may be so, but she's the
mother of your children,,
and you should make her
feel special.
If you know a woman
who is a mom, do somne-
thing special for her. She
will feel cared about and
you will feel very good
about yourself.
This doesn't have to be
difficult. Just remember,
she should not cook a
meal or wash a dish.
A child can pour a bowl
of cereal, draw a special
picture and deliver both to
his mom. Men shouldn't
use the excuse that they
can't cook.
You can make shrimp
cocktail. Cooked, peeled
and frozen shrimp are
available in all supermar-
kets. They're delicious,
especially if followed by a
grilled steak.
You can wrap washed
potatoes in foil and put
them on the grill, bake
them in the oven or you,
can make my husband's
homemade French fries.
How impressive is that?


B8 Port St. Lucie -

Friday, May 4, 2007


Packaged salad greens
are ready for serving.
Some even include the
dressing.
Top the meal off with a
store-bought cake or you
can make a pineapple pie.
We may not be talking
low-fat here, but we are
talking something special.
If your budget allows,
dinner out is a great treat.
Any relationship is a
give and take affair and I
promise you, if you don't
give you don't get.
I was married to my
husband, Bill, for many,
many years. On special
occasions, such as Moth-
er's Day, I was served
breakfast in bed and he
prepared dinner for the
entire family..
Sounds corny? It's not.
It's how you tell someone
you love them.
Before we get to these
great recipes, I would like
to honor the special
moms in my world.
To my mom, Kitty, who
is 98 years young, thank
you for passing on your
incredible cooking and
sewing skills,
To my beautiful and
only daughter, Kimberly, a
single mom who's done a
great job, and to my
daughters-in-law, Sally,
Lisa and Jennifer who are
all superb mothers.
Honor your mothers
and the special ladies in
your life.

COCKTAIL SAUCE
What is shrimp cocktail
without a good sauce? You
can buy it or make your
own.
1 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon horseradish
A dash or two ofWorces-
tershire sauce
Juice of half a lemon or 1
tablespoon lemon juice
concentrate
Dash of hot sauce
Mix all together. Adjust
ingredients as desired.
Chill. When ready to serve,
thaw shrimp and arrange
over lettuce leaves, add a
wedge of lemon and sauce
in the center.

GRILLED STEAK
(NIB) SERVES 4
Thisis my late husband,
Bill's, recipe.
1 (2 pound) bone in or
(1-1/2 to 1-3/4 pound)
boneless sirloin steak or
any steak you choose
Meat tenderizer*
Black pepper
Soy sauce
Jarred horseradish
One hour before
cooking, tenderize steaks
as explained on the bottle.
Sprinkle with pepper

and drizzle with soy
sauce. Be sure to coat
both sides.
Let sit at room tempera-
ture.
Grill or broil steak until
cooked as desired.**
Serve with horseradish.
Meat tenderizer is not
harmful, it is made from
the enzyme in papaya.
**Hint from my daugh-
ter Kim: For rare steak,
grill one side just until you
see the blood come up,
turn steak and watch for
the same thing.
Press the heel of your
hand, the-way it gives will
tell you whether the meat
is medium-rare or medi-
um.
Medium rare: Pressure
on the steak will sink as
deep as heavywpressure on
the heel of your hand.
Medium: Pressure on
the steak will sink as deep
as a medium pressure on
the hand.
Well: Pressing the steak
is as firm as the palm of
the hand.
FRENCH FRIES
SERVES 4
When potatoes are fried,
acrylamides form from a
naturally occurring amino
acid called asparagines,
which have been proven
to be carcinogens.
A study by the Journal of
the Science of Food and
Agriculture found that if
the potatoes are micro
waved for 30 seconds
before frying, the acry-
lamides are reduced by 60
percent.
True French fries are
soaked in ice water and
fried twice. Microwave
after the soaking.
5 large potatoes, peeled
-or unpeeled and cut into
strips
3 cups canola oil
Soak cut potatoes in ice
water for one hour. Drain
well and dry on paper
towels and microwave as
instructed.*
In a medium saucepan
heat the oil.
NOTE: The oil can be
refrigerated and used
again and again.
Put just enough pota-
toes in oil to cook evenly.
Fry until lightly golden.
Remove with a slotted
spoon and place in a bowl.
Continue until all pota-
toes are cooked.
When almost ready to
serve, heat the oil until it
is very hot and quickly fry
potatoes a little at a time
until crisp and golden
brown. Drain on paper
bag or paper towels.

GINA THOMPSON'S
PINEAPPLE PIE
(NIB)
Regular and low-fat
Serves 8-10
If you can't cook, but
have 10 minutes, you can
make this superb dessert.
By using fat-free sour
cream and a low-fat
graham cracker pie shell
you will have a rich tasting
yet low-fat dessert.
Pudding is, and always
has been, fat-free.
1 regular size store
bought graham cracker
pie shell
1 (16-ounce) container
sour cream
1 large (5-serving)
package vanilla instant
pudding
* 1 (20-ounce) can
crushed pineapple in its
ownjuice


Whipped topping
The pie shell does not
require baking, but I have
found that 10 minutes in a
350-degree F, pre-heated
oven will give you a
crisper more flavorful


crust.
While the shell is
baking, blend sour cream
with pudding powder (be
sure to ignore package
directions). Add pineap-
ple and juice. Blend well.
Pour into cooled pie shell
and chill.
Serve with whipped
topping or canned
whipped cream, regular,
low-fat or fat-free.
Let's talk: Arlene Borg,
the Grammy Guru, is


available for talks. For
detail, call (772) 465-5656
or (800) 823-0466.

PRAYER TO
ST. JUDE
Most holy apostle, St. Jude, faithful
servant and friend of Jesus, the
church honors and invokes you
universally, as the patron of hope-
less cases, of things almost
despaired of. Pray for me, I am so
helpless and alone. Make use, I
implore you, of that particular priv-
ilege given to you, to bring visible
and speedy help where help is
almost despaired of. Come to my
assistance in this great need that I
may receive the consolation and
help of heaven in all my necessities,
tribulations, and sufferings,
particularly (your request and that
I may praise god with you and all
the elect forever. I promise, 0
blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful
of this great favor, to always honor
you as my special and powerful
patron, and to gratefully encourage
devotion to you. Amen g

My tribute to the greatest 'car guy'


iT i Moran died at age
88 on Tuesday morn-
ing, April 24. Jim
oran is a common Irish
name, but this Jim Moran
was a very uncommon
Irishman.
He was the founder of
the JM Family in Deer-
field Beach, which is
made up of several
companies, the largest
being Southeast Toyota.
They distribute new
Toyotas to all the dealers
in the southeast United
States. His company was
just ranked the 18th
largest privately owned
company in America. He
was a multibillionaire
when he died.
I first met Jim Moran
at a meeting for Pontiac
dealers in Fort Laud-,
erdale more than 40
years ago. Jim had
recently moved down
from Chicago where he
had sold Courtesy Ford,
which he built to become
the largest Ford dealer-
ship in the world. Previ-
9usly, he had done the
same with a Hudson
dealership.
Jim grew up in Chicago.
His parents were poor,
but he worked hard at
various jobs, saving his
money until he could buy
a Sinclair gas station. He
began selling a few used
cars from his gas station
and that's what motivat-
ed him to buy a small
Hudson dealership.
The reason Jim
moved to Florida in the
early 60s, was his doctor
telling him that he had
cancer and as little as six
months to live. After he
sold his Ford dealership
and moved to Florida, he
found out his doctor was
mistaken. So, Jim got
back into the car busi-
ness.
First, he bought a small
Pontiac dealership in
Homestead. He soon sold
that for a nice profit and
built the biggest Pontiac
.dealership in the U.S. in
Hollywood. He set his.
sights on his next project
to be the first Volkswagen
dealership on Miami
Beach.
Back in the 60s, the
VW franchise was the
most profitable franchise
around. Volkswagen
turned him down, so he
took the money he had
planned to invest in the
VW dealership, $100,000,
and bought a distributor-
ship for a Japanese car
that very few people had
even heard of named
Toyota. The rest is histo-
ry.
Some will say that
Jim Moran was just plain
lucky. Nobody wanted a
Toyota distributorship in
the 60s. Thbpquality of
Toyotas at that time was
terrible and big American
cars dominated the
market. He may have
been lucky, but he was
also very, very smart,
worked very hard and I
have never known
anyone so focused on
success.
Beyond this, he was
blessed with the God-
given talents of extreme
charisma and the ability
to find, train and moti-
vate great people to work
for him. He built a
network of dealers to sell
Toyotas in Florida,
Georgia, Alabama, and
South and North Caroli-
na. He also built a sup-


port structure for dealers
including a finance
company, insurance
company, car accessory
company, JM Lexus (the
largest Lexus dealership.
in the world) and a port
preparation company.
His other companies are


EARL STEWART
On Cars

now nationwide and
service all makes of cars,
not just Toyota.
I like to think I had a
special relationship with
Jim Moran. We were both
"just a couple of Pontiac
dealers" when we met.
I bought my Toyota
dealership in North Palm
Beach/Lake Park in 1975.
Those were the "wild and
wooly days" in the car
business. Jim Moran was
an advertising genius as
well as a car genius. His
marketing and advertis-
ing techniques were
copied by the Japanese to
increase the sales of
Toyotas in the rest of the
U.S. when they realized
that Southeast Toyota
was outselling every
other region.
The "Toyotathon" was
invented by Jim Moran.
Top Toyota Japanese
management had huge
respect for Jim Moran.
"Moran san," they called
him. He coached them
on styling and designing
Toyotas to suit American
taste. He often flew to'
Tokyo in his private
Gulfstream jet to meet
with the top manage-
ment of Toyota.
Jim Press, the highest
ranking American in
Toyota and the only non-
Japanese member of
Toyota's board of direc-
tors, was sent to work for
Jim Moran at Southeast
Toyota while he was
being groomed for top
management. It is a fact
that Jim Moran positively
and significantly affected
the success of Toyota in
America.
This is one of literally
hundreds of eulogies that
will be written about this
man.
Most will paint him to
be perfect, a man for all
seasons and all things to
all people. They will write
about his charitable
contributions, his family
and all of those good
things he did during his
life, which were signifi-
cant.
Because I knew Jim for
a longer time than most,
and because I knew him
very early in his career, I
have a different perspec-
tive.
Back in those days,
the rules of the game
were a little looser than
they are today. There
were fewer laws and
regulations. It was the
wild, wild west when it
came to marketing cars.


Jim Moran was blessed
with incredible talents,
including charisma, drive
and intelligence. He was
the most competitive
man I have ever known:
the Michael Jordan or
Tiger Woods of the car
business.
As with all great per-
formers, he loved doing
what he did better than
anything. Yes, anything.
Everything else in this
great man's life was
secondary to his becom-
ing the very biggest and
best Hudson dealer, Ford
dealer, Pontiac dealer,
Lexus dealer or Toyota
distributor in the world.
Underneath the
smooth facade was
always the rough, tough
Chicago Irishman. I don't
believe it is possible to be
the best in the world at
anything unless you are
blessed or is it cursed
- with this kind of focus
and ambition.
The last conversation
I had with Jim Moran was
his phone call to me
about a year and a half
ago. He heard I had just
recovered from colon
cancer surgery and called
to ask how I was doing


and wish me well. He
reminded me about his
doctors in Chicago
telling him that he had
cancer and as little as six
months to live more than
40 years ago. He congrat-
ulated me on my dealer-
ship's great increase in
sales since I moved into
my new,' much larger
dealership. Then he said
to me, "Earl, I've been
telling you to build that
new dealership for the
last 10 years!" We both
laughed.
I am proud and lucky
to have known Jim
Moran. I learned a huge
amount from him and I
would have to say that he
had a greater influence
on my business life than
anyone, except my
father.

Learn about good, bad numbers and


how to take control of your cholesterol


Cholesterol is a
word we hear in
commercials all
the time and by now, we
all know that high levels
of the bad kind are not
good for you.
Sometimes it is hard to
sort out what it all really
means, so I'll try to give
some of the basics.
Cholesterol is a soft,
waxy substance that is
produced by the body.
We need a certain
amount for good
health.
In addition to. the
cholesterol produced by
the body, we get choles-
terol from eating animal
products such as meat,
poultry, fish, eggs, butter,
cheese and whole milk.
When cholesterol
levels are too high, the
risk of heart disease
rises.
Cholesterol is meas-
ured with a simple blood
test that tells your doctor
about the two kinds of
cholesterol: HDL or the
good kind and the LDL,
the bad kind.

SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well
HDL stands for high-
density lipoprotein, and
is considered good
because it seems to
protect against heart
disease, perhaps by
carrying cholesterol,
away from the arteries,
and back to the liver,
where it can be passed
from the body.
LDL, or low-density
lipoprotein, is consid-
ered bad because high
levels are linked to heart
disease. It can build up
slowly in the blood and
in the inner walls of the
arteries that feed the
heart and brain.
Mixed with other
substances, it can form
plaque, a thick, hard
deposit that can clog
arteries. This is known as


atherosclerosis.
If a clot forms and
blocks an artery that has
been narrowed by
plaque, it can cause a
heart attack or stroke.
Since it is the LDL, or
bad cholesterol, that
most affects your risk of
heart attack and stroke
it's that number that is
the most important.
The lower your LDL
cholesterol, the lower
your risk.
While the doctor may
give you a total blood
cholesterol number,
which combines the HDL
and LDL numbers, you
want to pay special
attention to the LDL
number.
According to the
American Heart Associa-
tion, an LDL level of 130-
159 mg/dL is borderline
high; a level of 160-189 is
high and a level of more
than 190 is very high.
If your health care
provider says your LDL
level is too high, you may
be put on a diet low in
saturated fat and choles-
terol as well as on a
weight-management and
exercise program.
If these are not suffi-
cient to lower your LDL
levels, medication may

be prescribed.
If your HDL, or good
cholesterol, levels are too
low, you may also be at
risk for heart disease.
If your physician says
you need to try to raise
those levels, you can
help by not smoking,
maintaining a healthy
weight and staying active
at least 30 to 60 minutes
a day most days.
The same regimen that
helps lower bad choles-
terol can help raise the
good.
This is a lot to take it,
which is why I've broken
the subject down into
basic information.
Keep in mind that
prevention is the best
medicine.
Lower your risk by
eating fewer saturated
fats and exercising.

Mother Nature teaches us to forget


past, create new purpose in life


Do you ever feel like
there is never
enough time to get
everything done?
You don't need more
time. You need to manage
your time. For hints on
how to do that, look to
Mother Nature, the great-
est teacher of time man-
agement.
The earth is always
* facing the future, but lives
one day at a time.
Winners in the game of
life don't try to take care of
everything at once.
Successful people make
a list of all the things they
want to address tomorrow.
They list them by impor-
tance the night before.
Then the next morning
after a good breakfast, they
take action on the most
important thing on their
list before the world gets in
the way.
If they get three things
done at the top of the list,
they are happy.
Then it's time to play.
They take an exercise,
dance, yoga or creative
class. They ride their
bicycles. They spend time
with family or friends, or
just do nothing. They don't
feel guilty about making
quality time for them-
selves.

Bottom of the list

VWhat about the things
on the list that didn't get
done?
Some might get done by
others. Some might go
away. However, if they keep
coming up on your daily
list, wait until they get to
the top before addressing
them. Worry is an unwise
choice.
Don't live a dual life
Living by the mind
instead of by the heart and
instinct is the main reason
* we worry.
It divides us into living a
life of duality instead of
wholeness and unity.
Our head tells us one
thing and our heart tells us
another. Which one should
we listen to?
The starting point to
living a healthy, balanced
life begins when we follow
our heart instead of the
head. Surrendering to the
deeper powers, creates
patience, trust and faith in
the universal spirit of life.
We let this spirit work for
us and through us.

Making a change

Change comes from
desire, not from thought or
fear. So much time and
energy is wasted trying to
change what has already
happened.
We are bombarded in the
world with quick fixes.


Third: The world.
Without the rich heritage
of love that comes from
putting spirit and family
first we suffer.


The challenge


JAMES TUCKER
The Spirit Guide

The past is the past.
A healthy approach is to:
Learn from it, bless it for
what it taught us, forgive it
. instead of judging it,
release it and move on to
create a new and better
cause and purpose. This is
the way the earth lives.
Learn from nature

Mother Nature is one
smart lady when we are
open to learning the
secrets of life from her.
These secrets are inside
every one of us from birth.
Our main job in life
should be to go inside,
bring them out and set
them free.
The result is living a life
of positive causes instead
of quick fixes.
This creates a respect for
all forms of life. Respect is
the foundation for love,
and love creates honor and
human dignity.
We have great riches
living in our hearts and
souls, and it has a lot more
to it than making money.
Money is the effect of
your cause.

Make a list of causes

Take an inventory of
your causes.
Spiritual causes are love,
peace, health, abundance,
faith, joy and creativity. To
live a life with these as the
top values should be the
goal of everyone on earth.
Hate, war, disease,
poverty, fear, sadness, and
hopeless are not the
opposites of the spiritual
causes. They are the lack of
them. It all comes down to
what we feed.
What we send out comes
back multiplied to the
source. This is the
supreme law.
Make a choice

It all comes down to the
choices we make. Living a
life of spiritual causes
starts with being in tune
with Mother Nature and
letting the divine laws flow
through us and work for
us.
Here are the priorities:
First: The universal
spirit.
Second: Family.


I challenge you to take
this most exciting inner
journey. The rewards far
outweigh the risks. '
Privilege, wealth, educa-
tion and experience have
little to do with it. The
desire to live a good,
healthy, prosperous and
happy life have everything
to do with it.
Sow new seeds and
causes. Help them take
root, grow and blossom.
When abundance
comes, take care of your
own and family needs first.
Then give back. Be gener-
ous with your spiritual
family and others who
inspired and encouraged
you along the way. Help
them so they can help
others.
You are now the light.
Teach others with the
yearning to learn how you
do all these great things
with your life. This is
passing the torch of hope
to future generations.
Until next time, never
give up on your dream,
your purpose and your
passion. You can do it.
Keep on keeping on.

Maintaining software

requires step-by-step


procedures
aiam often asked what
steps to take on a regular
basis to keep systems up
and running.
Many are surprised to find
out that the typical PC will
degrade over time and
eventually get to the point
where it's difficult to
operate.
I don't know if people just
assume that their machine
is like aVCR or aTVthat
works the same way over
and over.
Actually, a PC is more like
a car.
It requires periodic
preventative maintenance
just to keep things going.
It's the same with com-
puters.
Neglect the basic preven-
tative maintenance steps
and soon you will find
yourself with a sick or barely
operable machine.
So, what are these steps
that need to be taken?
mWith a car, everything is
m chanical, but how does
one change the oil or rotate
the tires on their PC?
Mechanical things on a
PC tend to work pretty well
without much mainte-
nance.
Keeping your computer
free of dust helps, and
cleaning the floppy or CD
drives can correct some
issues.
However, the things I'm
talking about are more
software related.
There are two sides to a
computer: things that are
hardware related and the
programs (software) that
make the hardware func-
tion.
Again, there isn't a lot of
maintenance needed for the
hardware, but the software,
on the other hand, needs a
bit of attention.
Neglecting to dust off
your monitor isn't really
going to cause any harm,
but neglect to update your
anti-virus software or your
operating system and you
may soon find yourself with
a machine that won't
cooperate anymore.
Let's go over a couple of
the critical pieces of the
software puzzle that need
regular attention.

Operating system
First and foremost, we
have the operating system.
The most prolific by far is
Windows from Microsoft..
Over the years, we've
seen many versions of
Windows and it really
doesn't matter if you are
runningWindows 95,98,
ME, 2000, XP or Windows
Vista, they all need some
basic maintenance.
As Windows runs, it's
constantly changing things,
making little notes to itself
and more. Left alone, this
operating system environ-
ment will eventually
degrade to the point that
the machine responds
* sluggish or not at all.
Temporary files can grow
and permanent storage
(the hard drive) can
become fragmented
bringing the system to a
crawl.
Periodically running disk
cleanup, Scan Disk and
defrag will help keep some
of the behind-the-scenes
things optimized and help
keep the computer healthy.
Also let's not forget the
updates. Microsoft is
constantly upgrading its
operating systems.
Ignoring these updates
can leave your machine
vulnerable to security flaws
and bugs in the system.
Since the operating
system is an extremely
complex piece of software
there are always things to
fix. Most of the time, the


patches released will fix
something you won't notice.
Sometimes the update
makes some radical
changes to the system.
Overall the updates are
best not to ignore.

Compute This

Like the operating system,
your anti-virus program will
receive updates constantly.
Every time a new virus is
discovered, whoever makes
your program will publish
an update to deal with the
new threat.
Not updating leaves your
machine open to all manner
ofnewviruses. This is one of
the main reasons why a
computer that has an anti-
virus program installed can
still get infected. It's not
good enough just to have
the program. It absolutely
has to be up to date.
A third piece of software
that needs to be run from
time to time is a spy ware
sweeper.
There are many to choose
from, but I prefer LavaSoft's
Adaware
Like an anti-virus
program, the spy ware
sweeper must be updated
every time you use it.

What you should do
This is what I do every
month to keep my system
healthy.
Start the machine in
"safe mode"(press the F8
key as the system boots up).
Turn off the screen saver.
Click the start button.
Go to programs.
Then to accessories
To system tools.
Run disk cleanup. This
frees up space by eliminat-
ing the temporary files that
have accumulated.
Run scan disk.
Run defrag.
Run Adaware, letting it
update.
Do a full system scan.
Make sure my anti-virus
is up-to-date.
Do a full anti-virus scan.
Taking these steps every
couple months will go a
long way to keeping your
machine healthy and
running smoothly.
Will it solve all problems?
No, but it's a start.
Sean McCarthy has
worked with computers
since 1978.

Lincoln Park grads

to teach sailing


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

Two experienced and
qualified sailors, both
graduates of Lincoln Park
Academy in Fort Pierce,
have been selected to
teach beginning sailing at
Fort Pierce Jaycee Park this
summer.
"These young women
are both college students,
each with at least four
years of sailing experi-
ence," said RoyWhitehead,
president of the Treasure
Coast Youth Sailing Foun-
dation. "We are pleased to
have found Fort Pierce.res-
idents to fill the instructor
positions rather than hav-
ing to 'bring in outsiders
unfamiliar with the area.
Both are enthusiastic
about being able to help
make this new youth sail-
ing program a success in
its first season."
Head instructor Skji
Conklin is a junior at Geor-
gia Tech, where she is
majoring in computer sci-
ence. She grew up sailing
with her family and earned
an International Baccalau-
reate diploma at Lincoln
Park Academy.
Ms Conklin holds
instructor certification
from the U.S. Sailing Asso-
ciation, which also verifies
her first aid and lifesaving
skills, and has worked as
an instructor at the Martin
County Sailing Center in
Jensen Beach.
Assistant instructor Jes-
sica Carter will graduate
from Indian River Com-
munity College this spring
with an associate degree in
business marketing, She
plans to attend Florida
State University in the fall
of 2007 to pursue her
bachelors degree in mar-
keting. She graduated
from Lincoln Park Acade-


my with high honors in
2005. She has sailed com-
petitively in numerous
regattas throughout the
state as a representative of
Lincoln Park Academy.
Ms. Carter worked for
two summers as a life-
guard for St. Lucie County
and maintains her first aid
and lifesaving credentials.
The Foundation's first
season of sailing instruc-
tion is scheduled to begin
June 4, with the last class
starting on July 23 and
ending on Aug. 3.
Two-week classes, either
morning or afternoon, are
available to children, ages
8 through 13. Students sail
small one-person dinghies
called prams, which are
designed specifically for
training.
The Treasure Coast
Youth Sailing Foundation
is sponsored by the Fort:
Pierce Yacht Club.
The Treasure Coast
Youth Sailing Foundation,
organized in 2006, has Pe
purpose to provide sailing
instruction to the youth of
the Treasure Coast, from
Port St. Lucie to Vero
Beach, at a site located in
Jaycee Park, provided by
the city of Fort Pierce.
The Foundation board
of directors consists of
members of the Fort Pierce
Yacht Club, the foundation
sponsor, as well as com-
munity leaders Robert
Benton, mayor of Fort
Pierce; Norman Penner,
director of the Boys and
Girls Clubs of St. Lucie

Total Soccer Academy

plans to develop

local talent


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
For the last decade, youth
and high school soccer on
the Treasure Coast has been
the only venue for local tal-
ent to get out and partici-
pate. But Port St. Lucie resi-
dents Andre Ruette and
Pete Marino plan to change
all that this year.
On May 19 the two are
launching a professional
soccer team, The Treasure
Coast Galleons, who will
play at Lawnwood stadium
in Fort Pierce, and in April
the Total Soccer Academy
began its first year of opera-
tion in Port St. Lucie. While
the Galleons plan on show-
casing some of the best soc-
cer talent in the area and
across the world (they have
matches scheduled against
professional teams from
Europe as well as a world
all-star team), TS Academy
hopes to develop into a
breeding ground for the
Treasure Coast's top talent.
TS Academy also has
opened its doors to players
from South Africa, England
The Netherlands and across
the United States.
On April 20, the program


officially kicked off.
"We're all. about player
development," said co-
founder Ruette. "We're
looking to make these play-
ers far more advanced than
they already are. We try to
treat them like profession-
als at all times."
Ruette welcomed in the
first six players to the Trea-
sure Coast and expects to
have another six to eight
join before June. Many
players must wait for their
respective school to end the
semester, others are waiting
for visa's to be granted.
Starting up a soccer acad-
emy in a non-soccer crazy
country has brought some
anticipated difficulties, but
TS Academy has combated
those by acquiring an elite
staff of coaches.
Coaching director. Gerry
Schiavo has been one of the
country's best soccer
coaches for the last decade.
In 2000 he led the club team
Uruguay S.C. to the third
round of the U.S. Cup, after
qualifying for the national
tournament at its lowest
level, regional amateur. The
semi-pro team lost to Major
League Soccer's Tampa Bay
Mutiny 1-0. It was the far-

Erick Ulla of El Salvador practices for the Total Soccer
Academy at Swan Park in Port St. Lucie last week.


thest a non-professional
team has advanced in the
U.S. Cup since the creation
of the MLS in 1996. The next
year Schiavo was named
United States Amateur Soc-
cer Association Coach of
the Year.
Next to Schiavo will stand
Marino, a former MLS star
and member of the 1996 US
Olympic team. Marino will
also serve as a captain for
the Galleons this summer,
while coaching for TS Acad-
emy.
"The TS Academy coach-
ing staff will also include
former South African
National team player and
MLS star Ivan McKinley,
former MLS all-star and
English Premier League
player Ian Bishop and cur-
rent head coach of the MLS
Colorado Rapids Fernando
Clavijo.
With that type of coach-
ing staff its no wonder why
players from around the
world would be anxious to
come and train on the Trea-
sure Coast.
"The coaches are great.
We've been having hard
practices, which is good. It's
work," said academy player
Erick Ulla. 'they try to get
us up to speed with the TC
Galleons and trying to get
into the grove of playing
every day and giving 100
percent. It's just been an
excellent experience so far."
The athletes will stay at


Witch Kloorfain/chief photographer
the Marriott Spring Suites in
Port St. Lucie for the dura-
,tion of their five months
with the academy. Five days
a week Ruette picks the
group up for morning prac-
tice at Swan Park. After the
two-hour session the ath-
letes are bought back to the
hotel where they lift and
recharge their bodies for
that evening's practice at
McChesney Park. They
returned to the hotel after
practice wraps up at 9:15
p.m. and repeat the sched-
ule the next day.
"We work them pretty
good at night," said Ruette.
"They're usually so tired
they just go to bed."
During the first two weeks
of the academy, the players
will get two rest days, but
come May 19, when the
Galleons open their,season,
Saturday will be game days
as each player will try to
make their mark as a mem-
ber of the team.
Being a part of a profes-
sional team, and getting
such high quality training
doesn't come cheap. A full
session (five months) with
TS Academy runs $8,500
per athlete, while a summer
session (three months)
costs $5,000. But those costs
include room and board at
the Marriott, meals, and
transportation too and

that matches your game,
you may never realize
your potential.
This is where Bill
Goldy, owner of Club
Formations on Federal
Highway in Stuart,
.comes in.
Bill has been building
clubs for more than 20
years.
It began as a hobby in
-his hometown of Strat-
-ford, N.J., where he and
his wife, Gail, and their
daughter, Dawn lived.
In 1998, when he semi-
retired and moved to
Florida he needed some-
thing to keep himself
busy.
"I didn't know what
'else to do," he said. "I
,love golf and I enjoy put-
ting clubs together."
Apparently the two are
a good fit.
Bill began taking
courses and learning the
finer points of fitting
,equipment to golfers and
-properly assembling all
the pieces.
He was a good student.
The walls of his shop
'contain several awards,
including one from KZG
Golf naming him as one
-of the "World's Top 100
'Club Fitters of the Year."
He has also earned his
"Class A" club maker cer-
tification from Golfsmith
,and just this past Octo-
ber, was certified as a
Golfsmith's "Master
.Craftsman."
"That is the one that I
am most proud of," he
said, pointing to the
,"Master 'Craftsman" cer-
tificate.
He then showed me a
box of blank wedges,
unfinished in terms of
shape and bounce. He
can take these and grind
"them to fit a customer's
ieeds and desires in a
;wedge.
This is something usu-
'ally reserved for tour
*pros, but at Club Forma-
Ations, Bill has the skill
'.and equipment to grind
!,one to anyone's liking.
One of the most diffi-
,cult aspects of matching
,a golf club to a golfer is
shaving enough demo
,.clubs for the customer to
'test.
Narrowing the process,
%can take days for some
shops. Many don't have
.enough choices.
A couple of years ago,
)Bill came up with a sys-
'tem that allows him to
,'use every head in his
,"shop with every shaft he
,'carries.
r The connectors he
designed allow him to
'screw any head to any
,shaft. The results allow
'anyone to try any head
l, e has in any shaft, ip
*pny flex.
The number of combi-
nations is staggering.
S"I start by testing them
with their clubs," he said.
'After looking at the
numbers on my launch
;monitor I know their
.swing dynamic and can
get pretty close to what
they should have. Then it
'becomes a matter of
tweaking the club until
it's just right."
. Through the use of
launch monitors that


calculate swing path and
,speed, ball speed and
spin along with other
factors, he is able to
make suggestions as to


J


JAMES STAMMER
Golf columnist


what set up in equip-
ment will best help the
customer's game.
From there he assem-
bles a demo and lets the
golfer hit the club and
see the results.
"I have 7-irons set
up and that is what I
start with for irons,"
Bill said, while hand-
ing, me one of the
irons. "Since I know
their swing dynamic, I
have an idea what
shaft should work.
From there I have
them hit every 7-iron I
have with that shaft.
One they may hit on
the toe, another on the
heel, but eventually
they hit one in the cen-
ter of the face."
From there he dials
in the shaft and the
customer winds up
with a club that can be
hit well most of the
time with his usual
swing.
He then showed me
some of the latest shafts
coming out.
I was shocked to see
that he has one with an
8.0 torque rating.
He explained that it is
wonderful for older sen-
iors and ladies who
struggle to get their
swing speed above .50
miles per hour. The shaft
bends easily and loads
quickly.
One satisfied cus-
tomer's husband told Bill
that he has created a
monster.


His wife now drives the
ball very well and reach-
es par-5s in three shots
for the first time in many
years.
He also has a laser-type
system for putter fitting.
He attaches a laser
device to your putter and
has you line up with the
hole just as if you're
preparing to make an 8-
footer to win the Mas-
ters.
He turns on the laser
device and shows your
alignment.
"It's surprising how
many people aim poor-
ly," he told me. "If you're
just a little off, you'll
never make that putt."
From there, Bill can
adjust your putter to bet-
ter aid your aim, or fit
one of the new ones in
his shop to you.
Bill has learned a few
lessons over the years.
"Most golfers play too
little loft and too stiff a
shaft. And not everyone
is fittable either. Some
people just never swing
the same way twice," he
said.
While launch monitors
are the rage in- fitting
today, Bill feels a change
is in the air.
Always on the lookout
for the newest methods,
he believes that in the
near future, clubs will be
built based on moment of
inertia, or MOI, instead of
the current method of
swing weight.
"We will find the MOI
of your favorite club, and
match the set to that," he
said. "It's still a little ways
off but it's coming."

Success follows volleyball club


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
The Treasure Coast Vol-
leyball Club has always
been a dominant program
around the state, and it
seems that nothing has
changed this year.
The club stormed
through the Amateur Ath-
letic Union Regional tour-
nament April 21 and 22 in
Orlando, sending six teams
to the national competition
'this June. That tournament
will be held at Walt Disney
World in Orlando.
Treasure Coast sent 12
teams to the regional tour-
nament, four came away
with first place finishes.
The clubs 14, 15, 16 and
17 Blue teams all took home
gold, with the 12 Blue team
finishing second and the 13
Blue team taking third.


The 12 and 13 Red teams,
and 15 White team finished
with silver championships
as well.
"What it basically says is
that we have an elite level of
volleyball players on the
Treasure Coast," said Mike
Sawtelle, director of Trea-
sure Coast Volleyball. "We
don't include west Palm
Beach. All our players come
from the Treasure Coast.
We're going up against these
cities like Gainesville and
Jacksonville who have 20-
plus high schools."
While the Treasure Coast
might have been a hidden
gem in years past, it is now a
well-known hot bed for vol-
leyball at all levels.
That success can be
directly associated with the
emergence of Treasure
CoastVolleyball.
The club was started by


Martin County head coach
Marty Bielicki in 1988 with
just one team and has
grown considerably. It now
boasts over 100 players on
12 teams.
With the popularity of
volleyball growing, and
more girlsplaying than ever,
the club has had a great deal
of influence with the high
school game as well..
Local schools like John
Carroll and Jensen Beach
have now risen to the level
that Martin County has
played at for years. That
improvement can be direct-
ly associated to the increase
in club players around the
area.
. "That's what club does,"
said Bielicki. "It's a great
equalizer."

Volleyball
From page C7
have won 15 district cham-
pionships, advanced to the
state final-four four times,
winning the title in 1994 and
finishing runner up twice,
said that he has sent 40 girls
to college on volleyball
scholarships. All played for
Treasure Coast Volleyball.
"It makes us feel good to
know that we have volleyball
teams that translate to high
school volleyball," said
Sawtelle. "The high school
volleyball is escalating (at a
very fast pace). We're catch-
ing up to (the rest of the
state) on a club circuit as
well as in high school."
Having the support of
middle schools and private
schools in the area has also
helped the sport grow Bielic-
ki said. With schools teach-
ing the sport at an earlier
age, girls are able to learn
and gain experience faster.
When they end up getting to
a high school level, they
have already been in big
tournaments.




Soccer


From page C6
from practice and games.
But those rates can be
modified for a local athlete
interested in joining the
program.
"(The academy is) really
to help not only the local
players but also your aver-
age soccer player that feels
that he isn't getting noticed
and feels that he's not get-
ting that extra kick," said
Ruette. "We want to help
develop soccer players
whether they're American
or European."
Ruette said he would love
to have more local players
join the academy. Currently
only two players, Oscar
Rosario and A.J. Mack, both
fromVero Beach, are signed


s-v rort at. LUUt:


up for the summer session.
However, he would like
to keep the program
around 15 players in its
inaugural year to ensure
each player gets as much
attention as possible.
While it is still yet to be
seen if TS Academy will be
a-success, it is clear that its
member believe that it
will. With aspirations of
playing professional soc-
cer, each member is confi-
dant that TS will help them
reach the next level.
"I would definitely rec-
ommend it to anyone,"
said Scott Cunningham,
an academy member from
his Cleveland, Ohio. "They
help develop you. It's a
good place for (soccer
players). They help you
focus on your true dreams
and goals."


"I used to j


like school."

This was one of the main
reasons that Bielicki started
the club in the first place. In
his mind, to be the best you
have to play the best. And
the best had club players
that traveled.
"I think that's one of the
reasons that (area teams are)
always in the running for
district and regional levels,"
said Bielicki.
Sawtelle, who also heads
up the program at Jensen
Beach, agrees and can see
what affect the club pro-
gram has had on the area.
"The fact that high school
is doing so well is making
more girls want to play," said
Sawtelle. "The thing about
our club is when we pick oui
age level teams we pick thO
best players no matter what
school they go to. It's a mix;
Our club teams are a mix-
ture of the best talent. We
make the players better
through club season."
On April 28 and 29, Trea-
sure Coast Volleyball sent its
teams to the United State
Volleyball regional tourna-
ment. Results were not
available for this edition.

BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT

REEL PLUMBING INC
Gary Ferris has worked as a master plumber for the last 22
years. It took 10 long years to be able to break off and form
his own company, but Gary's only regret is that he did not
do it sooner.
His business philosophy is "Honest Charges for Honest
Work!" That promise, together with his dedication to qualc -
* ity work, is responsible for the many referrals he receives
from satisfied customers. Another way he has distin-
guished his business, is his refusal to charge extra for
emergency weekend work. This buys him a customer for
life
Future plans include having his son become his business
partner and to have Reel Plumbing continue to provide the
best plumbing service in the area.
Next time you need a plumber, give Gary a call. You will be
glad you did.
