District announces plan after FCAT flop


736 third-graders
could be held
back a year
BY MATT DONEGAN
Staff writer
ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
Immediately following the
May 2 release of "disap-
pointing" Florida Compre-
hensive Assessment Test
results, the St. Lucie Coun-
ty School District
announced a plan aimed
at improving the perform-
ance of the lowest achiev-
ing students.


Students

get a live

BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE Stu-
dents at one city high
school got the chance to
learn about history from
the men and women who
lived it.
Seniors in Sarah
, Elmasian's American His-
tory class at St. Lucie West
Centennial High School
participated in an oral his-
tory project interviewing
St. Lucie County veterans
about their war experi-
ences.
"Students today are dif-
ferent than in the past
because so many new peo-
ple are moving to this
country and don't have the
family experiences of past
wars," Ms. Elmasian said.
"Our veterans give us a
snapshot of each war."
The veterans, who repre-
sented soldiers from as far
back as World War II,
attended a reception at the
school on May 2, held in
their honor. Students in
Ms. Elmasian's class inter-
viewed veterans to gain
-their perspective of the
war they served in.
"They really give us an
insight into war and espe-
cially our foreign policy
and the current war in
Iraq," Ms. Elmasian said.
"Bringing students and

Only 63 percent of the
3,175 district third-graders
tested had a proficient
score, a three or higher out
of five, on the FCAT read-
ing section. That is 9 per-
centage points lower than
what last year's third-
graders scored and 6 per-
cent worse than the state
average.
By local comparison, of
the 1,278 Martin County
third-graders who took the
test, 77 percent scored
between three and five, as
did 70 percent of 1,324
Indian River County stu-
dents.


By state guidelines,
third-graders must score
at least a two on the read-
ing part of the test to 'be
promoted to the next
grade.
'Twenty-three percent of
St. Lucie third-graders
scored a one on the test,
which means they may be'
forced to repeat the grade
if they aren't eligible for a
"good cause exemption"
based on their overall stu-
dent portfolio. To fail the
FCAT but pass the grade,
the student's portfolio
must show they have

Other industries

BY MATT DONEGAN
Staff writer
ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
There are more than 1,300
new homes sitting empty in
the county, and at the cur-
rent rate in which people are
moving here, it would take
16.6 months to fill the
vacancies, according to a
new study released late last
month.
Metrostudy says the
county has "one of the most
troublesome inventory
problems in the nation."
Those paying the dearest
price are in the construction
industry.
Ronald Maggio, owner of
RJM Homes, a statewide
homebuilder with an office
in Port St. Lucie, has been
forced to layoff more than
70 percent of his staff over
the past year, going from 90
employees to 25.
He has also severely cut
the number of homes he's
building in the county.
"We're building 10 percent
of what we did last year," he
said.
He's expecting to build 20
homes in St. Lucie County

Cancer survivor gives hair


to provide for those without
,. ,,'*'*' ^e*^ ';*^ >^k ^ HH%


BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE -
Maria Errante-Parrino
recently hit a major mile-
stone In her life. She is a
10-year survivor of breast
cancer.
As part of her 10-year
celebration, Mrs. Errante-
Parrino cut off 12 inches of
her hair to donate to Locks
of Love on May 3.
"Hair is a natural
resource that will grow
back," she said.
Mrs. Errante-Parrino
was first diagnosed at age
40 with Stage 2 breast can-
cer 18 years ago, while liv-
ing on Long Island, N.Y.
She had a lumpectomy on


her right breast, but no
radiation or chemotherapy
treatments.
After becoming cancer-
free, Mrs. Errante-Parrino,
who is now 58, and her
family moved to Port St.
Lucie 12 years ago. Two
years after moving, anoth-
er lump was found in the
same breast.
"The second time was
worse," Mrs. Errante-Parri-
no said. "I was more fearful
of telling my family and
seeing how they would
react and handle the
news."
Following the second
diagnosis,, Mrs. Errante-
Parrino underwent anoth-
er lumpectomy, along with
radiation and chemother-


apy. Since her mother died
from breast cancer, Mrs.
Errante-Parrino's treat-
ment was. aggressive.
Like many cancer
patients who undergo
chemotherapy, Mrs.
Errante-Parrino began to
lose her hair.
"It's devastating to see
your hair coming out," she
said.
, After she moved past her
treatment and was once
again cancer-free, Mrs.
Errante-Parrino's hair
returned.
"When my hair started to
grow back in, it was com-
ing in curly, so I decided to
start letting it grow," Mrs.

Believe it or not, there is some good news about drought


By RITA HART

Staff writer
As this year's drought con-
tinues and pushes Lake
Okeechobee to a record low


level, most Treasure Coast
residents are aware of the
need to conserve water.
What may not be common
knowledge, however, are
some of the benefits the
drought is offering to area


waters and wildlife.
Linette'Trabulsy, lead com-
munity outreach coordina-
tor for South Florida Water
Management District's Mar-
tin and St. Lucie Service Cen-
ter, recently responded to


THE TONGUE
Q: What are some of the roles of the tongue.
A: The tongue is a complex organ that plays a variety of roles in the mouth. For
one thing, the tongue is essential to speech. People can speak without teeth, but
not without a tongue. The tongue also, with assistance from the nose, gives you
your sense of taste. On the upper surface of the tongue, especially along the
edges and the back, are your taste buds. Taste buds, by the way, identify just four "
flavors: sweet, sour, salty and bitter. All other flavors are combinations of those !ij "
four.
Your tongue impacts your teeth in many ways. The tongue's muscles move food into contact with
the teeth so you can chew. The tongue helps with formation of a bolus, or ball, of food for I
swallowing. The tongue also helps guide erupting teeth into proper position and helps keep them
there. Just as your cheeks and lips apply pressure against your teeth from the outside, the tongue
.applies benign pressure against your teeth from inside. It's also useful in flicking at and dislodging.
pieces of food that may be left in your mouth after eating. Remember, however, that your tongue
is not a substitute for thorough brushing and regular flossing. o

questions posed by the
Hometown News.
Q: The surficial and Florida
aquifers are, replenished by
rainwater. What will happen
to our water supply if we
have another dry season?
A: In 2006, the Martin/St.
Lucie Basin received only
33.70 inches of rain, approxi-
mately 61 percent of the
basin's historical average,
which was the area's second-
lowest annual rain total on
record dating back to 1915.
Lake Okeechobee is
approaching the all-time low
record level of 8.97 feet
recorded in 2001. The Mar-
tin/St. Lucie area, as well as
the entire 16 county region
governed by the South Flori-
da Water Management Dis-
trict, would have to see an
above average "rainy" season
- meaning more that two to
three feet of rainfall over the


summer months to get the
area out of the drought situa-
tion.
Depending on the weather
and the success of existing
conservation efforts, certain
areas within the district
could be facing year-round
water restrictions. So it is
very important that every-
one do their part to conserve
water, one of our most pre-
cious resources.
Q: Lake Okeechobee is
approaching its all-time low-
est level. What are the envi-
ronmental effects of the lake
drying up?
A: Residents and water
users in the Lower East
Coast, including Palm
Beach, Broward, Dade,
Glades and Monroe coun-
ties, rely heavily on Lake
Okeechobee for back- up
supply of drinking water.
Additionally, canals in the
Lower East Coast must
remain at a consistent level
to ensure that salt water
intrusion doesn't occur in
eastern seaboard wells.
On a positive note, the Dis-
trict is taking advantage of
the low lake levels to do

Family, friends build '

house in memory

of local resident


By KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE Jose
Bianchi's life was all about
family.
He regularly spent his
days off with his three
children, Mariah, 14, Joey
12, and Madison, 6. When
he wasn't with his family,
Mr. Bianchi was busy
helping someone else's
family, building homes for
Habitat for Humanity.
"Jose just wanted to
help and give back," said
his wife, Maria. "He
impacted so many peo-
ple's lives."
Mr. Bianchi, 42, was
killed in a motorcycle
accident in March.
. Since his death, Mrs.
Bianchi, two of their chil-
dren and Mr. Bianchi's
employer, Bank Atlantic,
joined together last
month to build a house
for St. Lucie Habitat for
Humanity in Fort Pierce.
They came out to honor
the memory of the man
who loved to volunteer for
the organization.
"We want to continue
for him," Mrs. Bianchi
said. "It makes me feel
good and have his memo-
ry close to me. We want to
make him proud of us."
The couple was married
for 16 years and Mrs.
Bianchi said her husband
was always trying to get
her to come out to builds,
but life with three chil-
dren and a job got in the
way.
"I don't want people to
forget him and I want to
continue to help people in
his name," she said. "Jose
deserved it. From the
minute he died, all I could


think about was wanting
to honor him because he
so deserved it."
From there, the Jose
Bianchi Memorial Build
began.
"When Jose passed
away, we sent a counselor
to his branch," said Filib-
erto Valero, senior vice
president and regional
manager for Bank
Atlantic. "Each person had
the opportunity to share
something about Jose,
and most mentioned that
he really enjoyed working
with Habitat for Humani-
ty.."
Mr. Valero then contact-
ed Habitat and a build was
found for the bank to
sponsor in Mr. Bianchi's
memory.
Habitat for Humanity is
a nonprofit organization
that builds houses for low-
income families. The work
and supplies come from
volunteers and donations,
and the families who
qualify for the homes
must participate in the
build.
Co-workers from Mr.
Bianchi's Bank Atlantic
branch on Virginia Avenue
in Fort Pierce came out to
the Avenue Q build wear-,
ing T-shirts with Mr.
Bianchi's picture. Signs
were made and posted
around the build site, stat-
ing the build was in Mr.
Bianchi's honor.
"There were mixed feel-
ings because on one hand,
we were proud to be part
of a tight team and we
were able to work together
and be happy," Mr. Valero
said. "On the other hand,
it was very sad to see
Maria and her children
there. It puts things into

father.
perspective and you real-
ize you need to do things
with your family."
Mrs. Bianchi said par-
ticipating in the project
was healing for her, Mari-
ah and Joey, who helped
at the build.
"Everybody Jose
worked with went to the
build and it gave them an
opportunity to spend
time with us and gave
them the time to share
stories of Jose," Mrs.
Bianchi said. "And we
were doing something
good for somebody else."
'Mariah, the couple's
oldest child, said she was
glad to have been a part
of a project her father was
so passionate about.
"I feel good," Mariah


said. "It was really a new
experience for me. It was
something my dad did
and it made me feel clos-
er to him."
The family plans to con-
tinue their work with
Habitat for Humanity.
Currently, Mrs. Bianchi is
helping drum up support
for the 2007 Black & White
Mystery Gala, which is
scheduled for May 19.
"We will continue with
that cause because my
husband thought so high-
ly of Habitat for Humani-
ty," Mrs. Bianchi said.

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

bers who are veterans.
There are 37,000 veter-
ans in St. Lucie County
representing all branches
of the military.
Prior to the reception,
each student was required
to interview a veteran and
create a scrapbook page on
that person. This is the sec-
ond year Ms. Elmasian has
done the project and has
collected 500 entries for
the book. Ms. Elmasian
said she plans to continue
to project.
"A lot of times, kids come
to school and don't want to
do another worksheet, so I
like to do engaging les-
sons," Ms. Elmasian said.
"The end results in a day of
learning where everybody
is engaged and enjoying
themselves."
Rafael Contreras, 18,
appreciated learning
about America's wars,_


while interviewing Arnold
Christensen, who served in
WWII, for his scrapbook
page. He said he has a new
outlook on Veterans.
"I've learned to respect
veterans," Mr. Contreras
said. "He showed me a lot
of what happened back
then and about some
events in history. I'm really
honored to do this."
Mr. Contreras is a first-
generation American. His
dad is from Colombia and
his mom is from Puerto
Rico, so his family does not
have a deep history of the
United States military like
some families who have
been in the country for
several generations.
,He said the project made
him more aware of what
war was like for those liv-
ing through it, and that it
gives him a better picture
of American history.
"I feel this generation
doesn't really know what
war is," Mr. Contreras
said. "This generation
doesn't really appreciate
what these people did.
Mr. Christensen really
opened my eyes. God
bless all of them for being

Veterans who attended
the reception were grate-
ful to present their stories
to those who may have
only heard about war
through history books in-
school.
"I find that most young,
people aren't aware of our,
history," said WWII veter-

Bill Arnold, who served
in the U.S. Army during'

share his story about war
to students.
"I think this is fabulous,"'
Mr. Arnold said. "Students
got to learn that the free-

because of the sacrifices
of our veterans."
In addition to talking
with veterans, students
had the chance to look at

Money vs. compassion

What happened to compassion, and people wanting to
help other living beings? They don't live in Port St Lucie!
My son has a dog, Raven, that has a condition that the
vet does not seem to be able to figure out, and she is fre-
quently sick.
When this happens to her, she goes into respiratory
distress.' She had another one of her "asthmatic attacks"
today. Of course, this usually happens on weekends or in
the middle of the night when there aren't any vets
open.
For all the animal lovers out there, here's the run down.
My son is low on cash, and needed a vet who would
understand this and make arrangements with him.
1. Emergency clinic? Forget it. It's all about money.
Your animal will only get the treatment that it needs
until your wallet is empty. They will watch an animal die
if they can't get paid, in full, up front.
2. A Port St. Lucie animal clinic we have been cus-
tomers of for years was no better. They have
received dozens of referrals from us, as I am a realtor.
They refused to see, or treat Raven due to a balance
being owed from her last episode.
My son took them the money, and requested that they
look at Raven, and help her. The receptionist's reply was,
"We have to eat, too," and they still wouldn't look at her.
While my son and two others were trying to get the
clinic to treat her, I was on the phone looking for some-
one open.
3. An animal hospital in Fort Pierce? Not in, but I was
told the vet would call' me to give me advice. The vet
called me, and when I started explaining everything to
him, his comment was, "Spare me the editorial, this is
my cell phone. Call my office on Monday and set up an
appointment."
Not in this lifetime idiot!
4. A vet from Palm City called me, and when I told him
we needed to make payment arrangements, he said if
the dog was that sickly and financially draining, we
should consider euthanasia.
I'm sure you can figure out what I told him!
He then told me that we should take the dog back to
where we got her, and give it back. After all, Florida does
have a "lemon dog" law.
We are talking about a puppy here, apart of our family,
not a car. We want to get her medical attention, not
return her because she is too much trouble!
I ended up hanging up on him, as he really ticked me
off with his non-caring attitude. He called back and sug-
gested that we "sign" her over to him, and he would treat
her and find a good home.
I told him he should not be a vet!
Well, we do have people that care. Raven was taken to a
fire station, where the paramedics gave her oxygen.
Those guys are the only ones that cared enough to help
her. Kudos to those guys, they were wonderful!
I'm not mentioning what fire station, or any names, so
as not to get anyone in trouble.
You know who you are, and we thank you for what you
did. You did not have to, but you had more compassion
than those who were trained, and supposedly took an
oath, to help sick animals. ,
The following is the Veterinarian Oath, adopted by the
House of Delegates in 1969, amended by the executive
board in 1999, and added to by my family in 2007:
Being admitted to the profession of veterinary medi-
cine,
I solemnly swear to use my scientific knowledge and
skills for the benefit of society through the protection of
animal health, the relief of animal suffering, as long as
we get paid in full before looking at that animal. If owner
of said suffering animal does not have the financial abil-
ity to pay us in full, up front, the above oath is null and
void.

Teachers should help one another

I wanted to make a comment about the FCAT scores
regarding the fact that 23 percent of St. Lucie third
graders failed the FCAT reading section.
I checked the newspaper reading about some of the
schools that did really well. on the percentages that
passed
Some are Fairlawn Elementary, with a 93 percent, Flo-


asto4


Syndicated Content

-."
4 /,d ,


resta Elementary, with an 88 percent, E K. Sweet Elemen-
tary, with a 92 percent, Village Green Elementary, with a
90 percent, River's Edge Elementary, with an 87 percent,,
and Morningside Elementary, with an 86 percent.
Why don't the teachers in the schools that have a high
percentage of passing scores help the other teachers in
the schools that are having more students fail? Why don't
they give those teachers reading strategies. ]
Are they keeping them a secret? Why don't they all get
together and do the same reading program as the
schools that have the higher percentages of passing
scores?
I seems to make a lot of sense to me.

Great performance

I went to the Port St. Lucie High School band concert of
2007.
They did a performance there that wa outrageous.
These young kids, from freshmen to seniors, played jazz,
and symphonic, and all their music was unbelievable.
You can't believe a concert band canbe so. great and
entertaining.
I don't know what else to say about these children.
Everybody should go to see these children, and how
great they are.

A trashy problem

In the Torino area has trash laying all around on all of
the roads.
Do we not have an organization here that adopts a high-
way to pick up trash maybe every two or three months?
I've seen the same piles stay for exactly one year, and
nobody cleans it up.
I see people picking up trash on California, but they
don't come out to Torino Parkway. It's mostly by the col-
lege, and a short way down. But, nobody comes around
Torino Parkway to pick up trash.
Another thing, where there's trash laying around, Pro
Waste is responsible for some of it, because they just
pitch the garbage in the truck, and if it misses, it misses.
It blows all over the place. They don't bother to make
sure that it is put in the truck right.
With all the trash in this area it looks like a pigpen. It
blows in the canals, and the canals look like a cesspool
because they have all that trash in them.
The people that work for the contractors just throw their
trash and garbage everywhere. They never put it in the
dumpster that they have on the premises. while they are
doing construction work. They just pitch it, and it just
blows all over, too.
Now, they should be fined for having any kind of paper,
plastic, boxes, and bottles that they do no dispose of
properly.
There is nothing wrong with picking up your own stuff,
and putting it in the dumpster.

Thank you,

I think it's very nice that Hometown News has a Rants
and Raves column, but I only ever see rants.
So, here's a rave.
I have only encountered very kind people in St. Lucie
County while walking around with my daughter.
When I was pregnant, people were very considerate.
The many times I've been out there struggling to juggle
my baby, and whatever purchases I have, or errands I had
to do I have always found people willing to stop for an
extra minute to let me cross the street, hold a door for


me, or wait a moment so that I can get by.
Thank you St. Lucie County for making it a welcome
place for my baby and me.

Why build more houses

With all of the Treasure Coast being so dry and disas-
trous because of the drought, why do they keep letting
the big contractors and developers build more houses?
It seems to me that the people in power are more inter-
ested in the rich developers than they are in the people
who live here now.

Lesson needed

Do society a favor.
Teach your kids how to pull up their pants.

Recycle your goods

I do not see why people do not recycle. 'It keeps our
land nice and clean, and the water, too. .
It keeps our food safe, also.
Please recycle.

When will they be protected?

My neighbor has a new puppy. He ties it to a tree with
short choke chain, and the puppy cries all day long until
the owner comes home at night.
There is no regulation concerning this type of abuse. .
The puppy has had shots, has cover, water and food, sd
according to local law, it is being well cared for.
Yet, the puppy is tied up all day, and cries all day.
When will there bea qualified director of animal con.r
trol, preferably a veterinarian?
When will the regulation regarding tied up dogM
include a release schedule?
What's wrong with this county?

Would it be so bad?

This is a message to the snowbirds.
I, as well as the rest of the local full time residents, anm
getting tired of hearing the poor snowbirds whine about
how unfairly they are being treated. i
They complain about how much they pay to support
the local government, schools, businesses, and restau,
rants, etc., and how little they get in return for all of thek
money they spend in the short time they vacation here.
Time for a reality check. You have two residences. Th^
second one is here, and in most cases is nicer than most
residences only home or apartment.
Not everyone here can afford one home,-much less a
second vacation residence.
We are supposed to be grateful for the money they
spend because, without them, we would not have all the
fine restaurants, boutiques, and prestigious clubs thaI
we have now.
Tile snowbirds are always threatening to leave, and.
take their money back up North.
Let's see exactly what would happen.
First, the infrastructure would not be as crowded,j
especially the roadways. The restaurants would be less,
crowded. Some gourmet restaurants might close.
We wouldn't need to build more condos or country
cubs.
One could go to a local, family-run restaurant, not a

chain, and actually eat without a three-week reserva-
tion.
Life would be lived at a slower pace, like it used to be.
There would be less road rage, and less rude, pushy peo-
ple in the stores.
In short, life would be less stressful, less crowded, and
slower paced, like it used to be. It would be more small
town, and down to earth, as it was meant to be.
What would be bad about this?

Must one be obese?

Is it a requirement to work in the medical field to be
obese?
Every facility that you go to has unappealing looking
fat people.
What great health advertising!

Vandalism solves nothing

I do not understand.
Private property is private property.
For 12th-graders to come and vandalize people's prop-
erty is sad. Worst of all they used paint. That was paint
put on cars and driveways.
Police were notified. The people who did the deed are
known.
People, there is a better way to get your meaning
across.

Check it out first

On Saturday, April 14, 2007, my daughter had driven me
to the Wal-Mart for my weekly shopping.
I do not get out much unless she takes me. I suffer from
rheumatoid arthritis and it is difficult for me to get around
'without the aid of a cane, walker or electric cart.
I have a handicap mirror tag, and park in the handicap
spaces.
After shopping, my daughter had gotten me situated in
the car and was loading the groceries in the back.
A woman approached her and began to verbally assault
her for being able-bodied and using the handicap parking.
My daughter was mortified. She gestured to the front seat
and told the woman she was parked here because of me,
and I was in the front seat.
When the woman saw me, I leaned out the window and
called after her to tell her I hoped she never had to be hand-
icapped and she should look more closely at a situation
before rushing to judgment.
She hurried off.
I realize people abuse the handicap parking.
I also know that I have raised my children to respect all
people and to not judge them unfairly.
My daughter did not deserve to be humiliated. She was
helping me.
Just as the saying goes, "Look before you leap," and "think
before you speak."
I hope that woman learned a lesson, but I doubt it.

Errante-Parrino said.
"Then I started talking to
some people about donat-
ing and my niece cut and
donated her hair."
Mrs. Errante-Parrino did
the research about donat-
ing hair and discovered
Locks of Love, based in
Lake Worth. The nonprofit
organization provides
hairpieces made of real
hair to financially disad-
vantaged children who
have a medical condition
that causes hair loss.
She grew her hair to 12
inches (Locks of Love
require donated hair to be
at least 10 inches), and
began to search for a beau-
ty salon that would cut her
hair.
"I talked to various beau-


ticians, who all said it is
usually younger people
who donate their hair,"
Mrs. Errante-Parrino said.
That made her more
determined to donate her
hair. It was Mrs. Errante-
Parrino's neighbor that had
an answer.
"The district* manager
for Supercuts lives across
the street from me and she
said her store would do it,"
Mrs. Errante-Parrino said.
Carollynn Somoza, area
supervisor for Supercuts,
said it was a no-brainer to
help Mrs. Errante-Parrino
cut her hair.
"Supercuts is a sponsor
for Locks of Love and we
automatically give a free
cut to those donating their
hair," Ms. Somoza said.


Mrs. Errante-Parrino
had her cut at the Super-
cuts at Prima Vista Boule-
vard and U.S. 1. Ms.
Somoza said the business
was so touched by Mrs.
Errante-Parrino's story,
that they donated a hair
makeover. Several man-
agers from .other -stores
donated their time to help
Mrs. Errante-Parrino cre-
ate a new style with shorter
hair.
"She's wonderful and the
best neighbor 'ever," Ms.
Somoza said. "Her family is
always doing something to
help other people."
Mrs. Errante-Parrino's
daughter, Theresa, is cur-
rently growing out her hair
to donate as well, her
mother said.
"It feels good and is
rewarding," Mrs. Errante-
Parrino said about donat-
ing her hair. "At least some-
body will get something
out of this, and I also hope
to raise awareness about
Locks of Love."

From page A1
this year. Last year, it was
closer to 120.
Though St. Lucie's new
home inventory is higher
than Martin and Indian
River counties, he said
builders in the entire state
are suffering from the same
thing.
"We build in Sarasota,
Charlotte, it's no different
anywhere," he said. "Sales
shut off the day after the last
hurricane. But most of us
were so backed up with
orders that we stood busy
for a year. Sales have really
been off for more than a
year."
Speculators are in part to
blame for the current hous-
ing overstock, said Don
Santos, head of the Treasure
Coast Builders Association.
"Speculation on single-
family homes became ram-
pant," he said. "It was the
first time ever that, that type
of speculation happened in
our industry."
Areas spurred by specula-
tion include the Newport
Isles area and Tradition,
both in western Port St.
Lucie, he said.
While Mr. Santos said,
"There's not a builder in St.
Lucie County that hasn't
been hurt and isn't feeling
the pain as we speak," he
also said he believes St.
Lucie as a whole will feel the
hit.
"This will have a dramatic
impact on the county," he
said, citing a Builder's Asso-
ciation study.
The study showed con-
struction on about 10,000
homes started in 2005, cre-
ating 40,000 jobs. That's
based on the Association's
estimates that each house
built represents four jobs.
Of the 40,000 jobs it esti-
mates were created that
year, it says only 35 percent
were directly related to con-
struction activity. The other
2/3rds were part of the
trickle down effect, such as
restaurant, retail and pro-
fessional jobs.
.In 2006, the number of
new homes started was
about half of what was
started in 2005, Mr. Santos
said.
"When we had half the
new homes start, we used
the same logic, meaning
that we've lost 20,000 jobs in
St. Lucie County," he said.
"Not all of them are con-
struction related. It's still
being felt out there in virtu-
ally every industry. I think
you'll see a ripple effect in
jobs throughout St. Lucie
County."
Candy Walker, vice presi-
dent of the Economic


Development Council of St.
Lucie County, said the
housing slowdown does
indeed affect all other
industries.
"It's connected with busi-
ness at large in communi-
ty," she said. "So far, unem-
ployment figures are still
low. The rest of the econo-
my has stayed pretty strong.
We have maybe another
year before we deplete the
housing inventory. We may
see some effect in other
industries if it continues
longer than that. Hopefully
this won't last long."
As for those in the con-
struction industry, Mr. Mag-
gio said he suspects all the
new builders that popped
up in the county over the
last few years will go out of
business within the next
year.
"There are very few new
builders whose models are
paid off," he said.
His company, however,
does not finance its homes
or equipment, and only
builds on sold contracts.
"We are a conservative
company," he said. "I saw
what happened in '89 and
'90, and I'm very much
afraid of it. One day we were
as busy as can be, and the
next thing you know,
nobody could sell a house.
It lasted for five years."
So to weather the storm
this time around, Mr. Mag-
gio has reduced his compa-
ny size.
With owners forced to
make moves like that in
construction companies
throughout the state, Mr.
Santos said he expected to
see a big rise in unemploy-
ment. But so far he has not.
Many construction work-
ers who could no longer
find work in St. Lucie Coun-
ty have left, he said.
"I've talked to subcon-
tractors, many who work on
jobs in St. Lucie County," he
said. "With a lot of their
guys, and with 80 percent of
the guys who work on my
jobs, English is their second
language. Most people are
legal, but may not be citi-
zens, so therefore, when we
had a slow down, it wasn't in
their culture to go to the
unemployment lines. They
end up leaving and going
home. That might be Mexi-
co, Honduras, Nicaragua, El
Salvador. We're seeing thou-
sands of workers just head
home. We're also seeing a
number who aren't going to
sit around and starve to
death, so they've gone to
Mississippi and Louisiana
where work is booming
because of Hurricane Katri-
na."
Meanwhile, companies
here are forced to offer
incentives and continue
lowering home prices, said


nearly three times more
new home inventory than
Martin, Ms. Wetzel said she
doesn't think St. Lucie's


existing home values will be
impacted.
"Our values are stable,"
she said. "We're seeing


slight decreases, but they
don't have anything to do
with homes being occupied
and unoccupied."


C Is t 'rlwif- IF-v A


Sheri Wetzel, president of
the Realtors Association of
St. Lucie County and broker
with Re/Max Miday.
The good news is that
builders are working to get
the inventory in line with
demand, Mr. Santos said.
Metrostudy's report backs
up his claim. The report
shows new home construc-
tion in the county was down
19 percent in the first quar-
ter of this year when com-
pared with the final quarter
of 2006, and is down 35 per-
cent when compared with
-the second quarter of 2006.
Like everywhere else,
Martin County is also cut-
ting down on its home
starts. The report shows
how they've declined in
each recent quarter, going
from 245 in the third quar-
ter of 2006 to 113 in the
fourth quarter, and just 95
in the first quarter of this
year. It will take 6.2 months
for Martin County's new
home supply to be filled.

FCAT
From.page Al


Superintendent Michael
Lannon expressed his frus-
tration over the scores, but
revealed a plan that he
hopes will fix the problem.'
"These results are very
disappointing, especially
since our teachers, support
staff and administrators
have never worked harder
to focus on student per-
formance," he said. "While
disappointed in the num-
bers, we know that the
value of our school system
to this community is more
than FCAT results. But the
school board and this
administration have prom-
ised to bring additional
services to our students
with the most need."
The district announced
what those additional serv-
ices would be last week,
revealing a plan that
pledges additional teacher
pay, the lowering of stu-
dent-teacher ratios from
18:1 to 16:1 in kindergarten
through third grade class-
rooms in schools with the
highest need and the
expansion of support pro-
grams for students during
both the school year and
summer break.
The plan includes: $1.04
million for a teacher reten-
tion program; $2.4 million
toward reducing class sizes

have to take a math FCAT,
but do not need to pass it
to be promoted. Their
math scores were also
released last week, show-,
ing that 63 percent of stu-
dents in the grade scored
a three or better. Last year,
66 percent hit that mark.
The state average is 74
percent, which is, 2 per-
cent higher than last year.
While math scores rose,
the state's third-grade
reading average dropped
6 percent this year, with
just six districts statewide
showing a gain from last
year.
Still, state education
commissioner Jeanine
Blomberg, speaking via
teleconference the day the
results were released, said
she is pleased with the
long-term gains Florida's
students have shown on
the test, adding that FCAT
scores fluctuate from year
to year, and will continue
to do so.
Dr. Cornelia Orr, of the
state office -of assessment
and school performance
administrator, said she
doesn't think the perform-
ance of this year's third-
graders is in any way a
downturn in state educa-
tion reform. She said last
year's third grade FCAT
scores were "stellar," P
skewing how third grade
scores are viewed this
year.
While she said the diffi-
culty level of this year's
test and last year's test is
relatively equal, Ms. Karst,
the county school district
spokeswoman, said the
state is "ramping up the
difficulty level every year."
More FCAT scores are
expected for release in
mid-May.

graders and FCAT tutoring

Reading results for the
11 th and 12th- graders
who had to re-take the 10th
grade version of the FCAT
were released along with
the third grade scores last
week.
High school students
need to pass both the
reading and math sections
of the 10th grade FCAT
before they graduate with
a diploma.
Beginning next year,
they will also need to pass
the writing portion of the
test to earn their diploma.
Students can retake the
FCAT six times during
their junior and senior
years until they earn pass-
ing scores. Those who do
not pass thetest in their
attempts get a certificate
of completion instead of a
diploma upon graduation.
Only 59 of the 393 St.
Lucie students who re-
took the 10th grade read-
ing portion of the FCAT
passed this time around.
Statewide, 8 percent of
this year's senior class
failed the FCAT despite
having been poised to
graduate with other
requirements, such as
grade point average.

dents, third-graders also

Event scheduled for dogs to benefit dogs


.BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE Next
weekend goes to the dogs at
the St. Lucie Surgical Cen-
ter.
The eighth annual Yappy
Hour is scheduled for 5 p.m.
to 8 p.m. Friday, May 18.
The event is open to dogs
and their owners, with
plenty of activities for both.
"It's a good social oppor-
tunity for the animals and is
something for families to
get out and do," said Jill
Logan, administrator for St.
Lucie Surgery Center.
Yappy Hour is a fundraiser
for the St. Lucie County
Sheriff's Office K9 unit. Ms.
Logan said the event began
eight years ago, after hear-
ing everybody in the office
talk about their pets.
"We decided to have a pet
show, and then it became,
'let's see if we can raise
money for the K9s,'" Ms.
Logan said. "It's grown
every year."


The first year raised $500
and last year's Yappy Hour
brought in $4,200 for the
K9s.
There are nine dogs in the
St. Lucie County Sheriff's
Office's K9 unit, which has
an operating budget of
$20,000. Sgt. Tony Caval-
laro, K9 supervisor, said the
money helps with expens-
es.
"We use the money on
equipment that's not cov-
ered by the budget," Sgt.
Cavallaro said.
Donations help pay .for
training toys, new leashes
and leads and promotional
materials given out at
demonstrations, Sgt. Caval-
laro said. AtYappy Hour, the
K9 deputies will hand out
temporary tattoos of the
dogs.
"This is a wonderful
thing," Sgt. Cavallaro
added. "The community is
very supportive of us."
This year's event will
include demonstrations by
the St. Lucie Sheriff's Office


K9s, a pet psychic, and face
and tail painting. Ms. Logan
said there will be plenty of
games dogs and their own-
ers can participate in, such
as a musical mat game,
which is similar to musical
chairs but with mats and a
Wading pool where dogs
can select a rubber duck
and win a toy or treat.
There will also be several
contests, including the
smallest and largest dogs,
dog-owner look-alike, best
tricks and a loudest bark
contest.
"There will be lots to do
for the dogs," Ms. Logan
said.
If o'ne dog isn't enough,
the St. Lucie County
Humane Society and Dogs
& Cats Forever will be at the
event, promoting animal
adoptions.
Staff of the St. Lucie
Surgery Center will be on
hand grilling hamburgers
and hot dogs donated by
Publix Supermarkets.
There will also be a chance


to win prizes in a raffle, Ms.
Logan said. The grand prize
is a 23-inch HD-ready LCD
flat screen TV
While the event is a
chance for residents to have
a good time with their dogs,
it is more about helping out
those who protect St. Lucie
County.
"Everybody here are such
animal lovers, and the
deputies and their dogs are
out there every day risking
their lives," Ms. Logan said.
"We think it's a way to pay
back the community."
Admission to Yappy Hour
is $5 per family. Raffle tick-
ets are $10 for five, or $20
for 12.
The event will be held at
St. Lucie Surgery Center, at
1310 S.E. West Star Ave., in
Port'St. Lucie, across from
St. Lucie Medical Center.

(772) 337-5200.

Drought
From page A2
longer being discharged into
the St. Lucie River?
A: The St. Lucie Estuary
has not had any releases
from Lake Okeechobee
since April 2006. Sea grasses
and oysters are rebounding
from the damage done dur-
ing hurricanes Frances,
Jeanne and Wilma in 2004
and 2005. Salinity levels and
clarity are greater now than
in previous years.
Q: Other than reducing
the watering of lawns, what
can residents do to save
water?
A: Save water outdoors by
landscaping with drought
tolerant plants using the
Xeriscape landscaping; posi-
tion sprinklers so water
lands on lawn and shrubs,
not paved areas; raise the
lawn mower blade to at least
three inches or its highest
level; use a rain gauge to
avoid over-watering the
lawn; avoid over-fertilizing
lawns; use mulch to retain
moisture in the soil; use a
broom or blower instead of a

Q: Wal-mart has part-
nered with SWFMD to pro-
vide public service
announcements regarding
restrictions in their
stores. What other business-
es, if any, are joining in the
efforts?
A. The District is creative-
ly partnering with local gov-
ernments, businesses and
residents to make sure that
the water restrictions are
enforced and that residents
are informed about the
rules. In St. Lucie County,
the government access
. channel SLCTV and the
local utilities created a Q&A
show that is airing county-
wide.
Additionally, both Martin
and St. Lucie county televi-
sion stations have aired
public service announce-
ments distributed by the
District. Radio stations up
and down the coast have
aired water restriction pub-
lic service announcements.
The Florida Nursery,
Growers and Landscape
Association has partnered
with the District recently
launching "GrowSmart," a
public awareness campaign
that encourages water-wise
landscaping and promotes
the use of "the right plant for
the right place."
The Martin/St. Lucie Ser-
vice Center staff is also plan-
ning efforts to reach school-
aged children with the water
conservation message. The
District has an active Speak-
ers Bureau not only in
West Palm Beach but in
the Martin/St. Lucie service
area. Experts in water con-
servation, water quality and
other topics are available to
speak to business groups,
civic organizations and
homeowners' associations


* simply by calling the Service
Center office in Stuart.
For more information on
water restrictions or water
conservation tips, visit the
South Florida Water Man-
agement District's website at
www.sfwmd.gov or call the
Water Shortage Hotline at
(800) 662-8876. Residents
may also visit the Service
Center, located at 780 S.E.
Indian Street in Stuart, by

I Any questions? I sure

7- s When my friend Nicki
ies to Valentine had us over for
dinner she made, at my

It was great although it

and calories.
She said, "I'll give you
the recipe. You make it
healthy."
There are no two people
who make it the same way.
Leftover roast and gravy
can be used, ground beef,
ground lamb, mixed
vegetables or only one
vegetable such as corn,
peas, lima beans, etc.
Unless you can find
ground beef that contains
^ no more than 6 grams of
fat per serving, have yours

such as flank steak, eye

and chuck, as per instruc-
tions in previous columns.

SHEPHERD'S PIE
(NIB)
Serves 6-
Regular and
low-fat
1 pound ground beef or
fresh ground "fat-free"
ground beef
1 medium onion,
chopped
1 teaspoon garlic/pep-
per seasoning or 1/2 tea-
spoon garlic powder,
1/2 teaspoon black pep-
per
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups frozen mixed veg-
etables, cooked and
drained
1/2 cup flour
1/2 to 1 cup milk, regular
or skim (Try evaporated
skim milk, diluted.)
2 cups grated cheddar
cheese or Kraft fat-free
grated cheddar cheese
3 to 4 cups prepared
mashed potatoes
(Recipe follows.)
In a large skillet, brown
beef, pour out fat. If you're
using "fat-free" ground
beef, add 1 tablespoon
extra virgin olive oil to the
pan. Add onion and
seasonings and cook until
onion is golden.
Mix in vegetables, then
flour, stirring constantly to
blend.
Stir in enough milk to
make a medium to heavy
gravy. Pour into a 3-quart


ARLENE BORG
The Grammy Guru

baking dish or a 9-by 13-
inch pan.
Sprinkle cheese over top,
then carefully spread
mashed potatoes sealing
to the edges.
Bake at 350 degrees E for
20 to 30 minutes until top
is golden brown. Let sit 5
minutes before serving.

MASHED POTATOES
Serves 5 to 6
Regular and low-fat
Mashed potatoes have
always been considered a
high-fat food, but with a
couple of subtle changes,
they become a delicious
low-fat food. By using a
butter substitute, such as
Smart Balance, instead of
regular butter, and by
using evaporated skim
milk or fat-free half and
half in place of whole milk
you cut the fat and choles-
terol considerably.
5 medium-size potatoes
4 tablespoons butter
Milk
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup ice water
Peel potatoes*, cut in
large chunks and cook in
water until tender, drain.
Whip with an electric
mixer, adding butter. Add
milk until desired consis-
tency is attained. Season
with salt and pepper.
Whip in ice water for the
fluffiest mashed potatoes
ever.
Because the many
vitamins in a potato are
just in or beneath the skin,
you might want to leave
the skin on and cut
potatoes in small chunks
before cooking.

'Pure'

relives

1920s

BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer


In, the 1920s, a favorite
type of entertainment
was the melodrama,
where the villain sneered
and twirled his mus-
tache, the heroine sim-
pered, the hero was
handsome, and dark
events were heralded by
dramatic organ music.
The Pineapple Playhouse.
will re-create. that era
from May 17-June 3 as
they present Paul
Loomis' parody of early
melodramas, "Pure as the
Driven Snow."
Mercedes Richmond,
who is directing the com-
edy-melodrama, says
that it is played for
laughs.
"It's very tongue-in
cheek," she says. "We will
be using music, sign
cards saying 'Boo' and
'Hiss' and a lot of audi-
ence participation There
are a lot of asides to the
audience, too. A few
times the actors have had
to repeat their lines to get
through them because
they're so silly. We think
its fun and hope the audi-
ence will, too."
Mrs. Richmond is quite
pleased with the cast

'Broadway Showstoppers'

round out Shiloh season


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
For Shiloh Theatrical
Production's final show of
the season, .they are
bringing back the Great
White Way in a big way.
Broadway Showstoppers,
which will be performed
at the Lyric Theatre from


May 16-20, celebrates' Les Miserables," "The


some of Broadway's best
songs from some of its
most popular shows.
Jim Docter, who is
directing the show, says
they went for contempo-
rary hits from shows such
as "Phantom of the
Opera," 'Aspects of Love,"
"Jesus Christ Superstar,"


Secret Garden," "Jekyll
and Hyde," and "The Lion
King."
"The show features
choral numbers, dances,
solos and duets," he says.
"The thread is how the
music flows. At the
beginning of each act, we
explain why the music


was picked and set the
scene for what's happen-
ing. For example, with
"Phantom," it was a huge
hit that brought younger
people back to Broadway.
It was in .the rock opera
style that attracted both
old-line theater people

she's assembled.
"Our Mortimer, the vil-
lain, played by Tony Ferri-
no Jr., is a little bit older
but he is dark and sinister
and dastardly," she says.
"The hero, Leander
Longfellow, is played by
Steve Carden. It's his first
time on the stage; he came
in and blew us all away.
He's handsome and
adorable and everybody's
half in love with him
already. Carey-Anne
Elmquist, who plays the
heroine, Purity Dean, was
in 'Sugar.' This is her first
straight play. She has done
musical, theater her,whole
life- and- isI a dream to6
direct- She's sweet -and
innocent-looking and
demure."
Others in the cast
include Gayle Searles, Jerry


Badinger, Elisa Groendyke,
Katie Horn, Grant
Groendyke, Chad Granese,
Jill Rich, Megan Rich,
Frank Cardillo, Noah Rich-
mond, Elizabeth Smith,
Dottie Cardillo, Melissa
Raulston and Shannon
Ferguson. Colby Dempsey
will provide the melodra-
matic music and Jan
Buzzeo is the assistant
director.
Mrs. Richmond's family
is also a part of the produc-
tion. Her daughter, Savan-
nah, plays a card girl and
her husband, Wayne, will
describe the action and
encourage the. audience to
get involved. Forthis'proK-
, duction, boos and hisses
are signs of a hit, and Mrs.
Richmond hopes that the
audience will really get
into the spirit of the "pure"
fun of it all.

and newcomers. It opened
up a lot of doors for that
type of singing. "Les Mis"
is also much more
demanding vocally than
the typical Broadway
Musical and it also has a
rock style. .
"For the first act,
we've gone for the "wow"
musicals where people.
were blown away by the
stories, music and spe-
cial effects. The second
act has more family-
friendly musicals like
"The Secret Garden,"
which was a big hit on
Broadway that has faded
a bit from the radar, but
has equally beautiful
music; and "The Lion
King," with music with a
rock opera feel because it
was written by Elton
John."
Mr. Docter says that
the goal was to showcase
numbers away from their
stories, to turn the spot-
light on music that holds
up away from the story.
These, he says, are the
showstopperss."
The cast of 24 comes
from Vero to Palm Beach
Gardens and ranges in
age from 6 to the late 70s.
In addition to a great
cast, Mr. Docter is work-
ing with choreographer
Mark Wygonik and music
director Paul Morgan.
The three have worked
together before, although
this is Paul Morgan's first
Shiloh show.
Mr. Docter says that
this is a special event, a
fundraiser for the theatri-
cal company.
"Tickets don't cover


production costs and
sometimes you have to
do something else to
help," he says, "We
thought the best way was
to do something fun that
people could enjoy."
"Broadway Showstop-
pers" will be performed
at the Lyric Theatre, 59
S.W. Flagler Ave., Stuart
on May 16-20. Perfor-
mances are at 8 p.m. May

Here are 10 things to
watch out for when
shopping for a new
car
No. 1. Believing the
newspaper and TV ads. It
never ceases to amaze me
how outrageous and
unbelievable the car
dealers' claims are.
Just when I think that
they can't get any worse, I
see one that tops them all.
Last month, one dealer
was advertising in the
newspaper and TV that if
you bought one vehicle
from him you got a second
for nothing.
The "facts and fine print"
would reveal that the first
vehicle was a very expen-
sive one with a huge
markup of more than
$6,000 and the second
vehicle was the "use" of a
vehicle for two years: a
lease.
My father always said, "If
it sounds too good to be
true, it probably isn't."
Astoundingly, the general
manager of this dealership
had the gall to say on TV,
"This is not a gimmick."
No. 2. Buying a car on
impulse on the first day
you start shopping. Can
you believe that this is the
way most people buy cars?
It truly is. There is some-
thing about a new car that
excites people and appeals
to them on an emotional
level. People let their
feelings short circuit their
logical thought processes.
Overcome that emotion
' that tells you to drive that
shiny new car home right
now. Go home and think
about it. Talk it over with
your spouse and friends.
Research the model of car
you looked at and the price
on the Internet.
Always drive the car you
chose before you sign any
papers. You should take at
least a week or two in the
decision making process
before you buy a car.
No. 3. Trading your old
car into the dealer you buy
from without shopping its
value. Most people have no
idea what their trade-in is


EARL STEWART
On Cars


worth when they come in
to buy a new car. They rely
entirely on the appraisal by
the selling dealer. The
dealer can make it appear
that he is giving you a lot of
money for your trade by
taking some of the high
markup on the new car and
showing it as part of the
appraisal value.
Check Kelly Blue Book
(kbb.com) and '
Edumnds.com on the
Internet. Get at least three
bids from other dealers of
the same make for your
trade. Make the purchase
of the new car and the sale
of your trade two separate
transactions.
Remember that you do
get a sales tax break by
trading in your car to the
dealer you buy from.
No. 4. Using the dealer's
financing without checking
with your bank or credit
union. Shop for the best
price on your financing just
like you shop for the best
price on your trade-in and
new your car.
No. 5. "This low price is
good today only." This is
one of the favorite ruses -
used by car salespeople
and dealers. In 99 percent
of the cases, you can buy
that car for the same or an
even lower price later. The
only time that you can't is
when factory incentives
expire on a certain date,
typically at the end of the
month. If that is the claim,
demand to see the written
factory incentive by the
manufacturer.
No. 6. "Make me a,
written offer with a deposit
and I will submit it to my
manager." This is standard
operating procedure at
most car dealerships. This
is to get you psychological-
ly engaged in the buying
process. Once you have
signed a buyer's order and
written out a check, you
will remain in the dealer-
ship for a while and are
more likely to buy. The
salesman knows that.
Insist on getting their
best price on the car you
have selected. You should
never make the first offer.
Once you have their price,
compare it with at least
three other prices from

other dealers on the same
make and model.
No.7. Taking the new car
home to see how you like it.
This is the famous "puppy
dog" technique,,so named
because once you take a
puppy dog home
overnight, who has the
heart to return it the next
day? You, your neighbors,
and friends will see that
shiny new car parked in
your driveway. It sure looks
good. How can you explain
to anybody that you didn't
buy it?
No. 8. "I'll buy the car if
you can get my monthly
payments below $ X" Most
of us tend to think in terms
of our monthly budgets. We
might feel that we can
afford a new car as long as
it costs us less than $350
per month, but there is a
big difference between
$350 per month for 36
months and $350 per
month for 72 months. I
recommend that you
finance a car for no more
than 42 months, preferably
36.
No. 9. "You have my word
on that." Be absolutely sure
that every promise or
commitment made to you
by your sales person is in
writing and signed by a
manager. That salesman
may not work there when
you have occasion to ask
for that "free loaner car"
that he,promised you
anytime you bring your car
in for service.
No. 10. "All dealers charge
a dealer fee and we can't
remove it from the
invoice." In fact, all dealers
do hot charge a dealer fee. I
don't. But unfortunately,
most do charge this
"gotcha" fee ranging from
$495 to $1,000. It is true
that Florida law (which
should prohibit dealer fees
entirely) requires that the
dealer fee appear on all
invoices. If you charge just
one customer a dealer fee,
you must charge every-
body. The state legislators,
in their infinite wisdom,
decided if a car dealer is
going to take advantage of
even one buyer, he must
take advantage of all of the
buyers. Never discriminate.
But the loophole in this
stupid law is for you to
demand that the dealer
reduce the price of the car
by the amount of the dealer.
fee, making it a wash.

Spring planting season


creates lots of great colors


T he spring planting
season is in full swing
and everywhere you
look you see color and more
color.
Now is the time when
people flock to the outdoors
to dress up their yards and
gardens to get ready for the
season.
Not only does sprucing up
your yard create eye candy
for the beholder, but also,
the outdoor activity that we
do is actually beneficial to
our health.
The positive feelings we
get while we are tilling in the
garden and working with
plants can effectively help
reduce fatigue and stress.
If you have a high-
pressure job, the benefits of
gardening can be signifi-
cant.
If you have plants in your
home, you have the added
benefit of the leaves actually
helping to clear the air.
Plants in the home can also
help raise humidity levels.
This can be most important
during the dry winter
months.
Plants can also help
absorb noise and actually
lessen dust in the home.
Many tests have been
done on the relationship
between blood pressure
and gardening.
They have shown that
people who frequently
tend to their gardens have
lower blood pressure.
Gardening should never
be a substitute for your
regular medication or
healthcare, however.
With the arrival of spring
comes the job of pruning
all your favorite plants.
Not only do you need to
decide on which plants to
prune, but you also must
choose which tool will suit


Support

offered

to youth

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

The Harbors Center for
Grief and Loss, which is a
service of Treasure Coast
Hospices, offers two sup-
port groups for youth deal-
ing with the death of some-
one they loved.
"Healing Hearts" chil-
dren's group, for children
ages 6 to 12, and "Let's Talk
About It," a support group
for teens, are open to those
who have lost a loved one.
The groups meet at Trea-
sure Coast Hospices, 10360
South Federal Highway, in
Port St. Lucie.
These support groups are
free of charge.
For more information or
to register, call The Harbors
at (772) 403-4530.


your needs the best.
There are basically two
types of pruners: anvil and
bypass.
Anvil pruners work by
pushing a sharp blade
against a flat piece of metal
called an "anvil."
The bypass pruner works
more like a pair of scissors.
The tool has two sharp
blades that work together to
cut the plant material.
In general, the bypass.
type is the preferred choice,
as it will make a cleaner cut
that will ultimately heal
faster
Spring is also a time when
people replant their house-
plants.
Maybe you need to put
them in a larger pot or
maybe you just want to
create a newlook with a
decorative planter.
To ensure you don't
transmit any diseases from
plant to plant, clean the old
pot with a 1 percent solution


I~sm~*


of bleach before reusing the
pot for another plant.
For added safety, you can
also use this method before
placing your plants in a
newly purchased pot.
Many people may decide
to move a favorite plant that
you had indoors all winter
to an outdoor environment.
In order to make this
process work, place the
plant in its new location for
short intervals at first, and
then gradually increase the
plants' exposure to its new
location over the course of a
couple of weeks.
Even with all the precau-
tions, the plant may still
drop some leaves or buds.
This is normal and the plant
should make a full recovery.
-Just a reminder that you
can contact me with your
plant questions by e-mail or
by using my new garden
forum at www.hometown-
garden.com.

"There are two sides to every story." An old
adage that has proven itself true time and
time again in nearly every area of life. In the
case of guided hunting -services, nothing
could be closer to the truth -- a fact that
Native Hunt (http://nativehurit.com)
owner T. Michael Riddle knows well.
"Hunting in general is a controver-
sial sport," says Riddle. "Somp people
despise it while other people couldn't live
without it. At Native Hunt, we understand
both opinions. We never try to push our
viewpoints on anybody; we simply offer
our services and let people decide for
themselves."
Native Hunt is a licensed, state-honded
hunting service with ranches located in
Monterey and Fresno counties in
California. In business since 1990, Native
Hunt employs both game management
professionals and trained hunting guides --
a combination that has led to a 100 percent
success rate for their clients.

"Our professionals understand
that not everybody agrees with what they
do," says Riddle. "At the same time, howev-
er, they have high expectations to live up to
from our clients; and at a 100 percent suc-
cess rate, it's hard to argue with their pro-
fessionalism."
Native Hunt offers a wide variety
of guided hunting ventures including one-
and two-day hunts for wild boar, bear,
turkey, deer, and a number of assorted
game birds. According to Riddle, Native
Hunt's ranches offer more than just a haven
for hunting enthusiasts.:With tree-covered
hills, lush valleys and numerous ponds, the
company's property is the perfect place for
individuals who enjoy the outdoors.
'"At the basis of hunting is a love for the out-
doors," says Riddle. "We embrace the out-
doors and we believe in sharing our beauti-
ful settings with everybody -- both hunters
and non-hunters alike."

If it's Sunday, it's time for cricket


Club gains a
foothold for area
residents
By MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
Before there was foot-
ball, basketball or base-
ball, there was cricket.
Created in the United
Kingdom and brought to
the British colonies in
the 1800s, cricket is still
one of the most popular
sports around the world.
But for most Ameri-
cans, cricket is an insect,
rather than a sport
involving skill, speed and
talent. In a country
where football and base-
ball take center stage, it
can be difficult for new
American citizens who
grew up with the sport in
their home countries, to
find other players who
share the same passion
for cricket that they do.
In .1993, a few St. Lucie
county residents came
together and created the
St. Lucie Cricket Club.
They soon joined the
South Florida Cricket
Alliance, one of the pre-
mier cricket leagues in
the state.
Former captain and
current St. Lucie Cricket
Club player Michael
MacKnight moved to the
United States from
Trinidad when he was in
high school. Having
played cricket his whole
life, MacKnight struggled
to find others who
played the sport, so he
turned his talents to
track and soccer. After
attending Delaware State
on a track scholarship in
the mid 70s, he eventual-
ly moved to Fort Pierce


and found other trans-
plants who also missed
playing the sport and the
St. Lucie C.C. was
formed.
Fourteen years later,
the club is still going
strong.
"They had tried to
bring cricket into Fort
Pierce, but because of
lack of involvement they
were unable to," said
MacKnight. "The first
year we did so-so and
eventually we started to
attract some more play-
ers."
The team practices
Thursday nights at Girl
Scout Friendship Park in
Port St. Lucie, and is in
the middle of a 14-game
schedule. Weekly games
are played on Sundays.
With an average age of
35, the makeup consists
of players from all over
the area, most of whom
are transplants from
Bermuda, Jamaica or
Trinidad.
Club president Ralph
Morrison is trying to
make the game more


attractive to the youth in
the area, but is finding it
hard to compete with
sports that are more
prevalent in this country.
His goal. is to get players
learning it at a younger
age. His figures that if
kids know how to play
cricket and get a chance
to actually play the sport,
less would pass it over.
"The problem with this
sport is it's not a fast-
paced game compared to
American sports. It's
more or less a skill
game," said Morrison.
"You don't find too many
players who are interest-
ed. We Are trying to get it
to a point where it's
faster and get more peo-
ple interested. Most
American kids aren't
going to make the switch
because not as attrac-
tive."
Morrison isn't being
shy about the slow pace
of a match. Games can
run up to six hours,
which is a long time for
anyone to stand in the
sun. But the long games


teach patience says Mor-
rison, as well as team-
work similar to other
sports.
The club, which plays
in the first division of the
SFCA, started off the sea-
son 4-0, including a
thrilling 112-108 win
May 6 against Leeward
United C.C.
The team has
advanced to the playoffs
a number of times, but
never won a champi-
onship. Only four of 17
teams in their division
will make the postseason
and St. Lucie is hoping
they will get a chance to
hoist the Williamson Tro-
phy when the season
ends this August.
St. Lucie C.C. plays
against May 20 at Girl
Scout Friendship Park
against Pakistan C.C. of
West Palm. Game time is
11 a.m.

Mustangs fight for first win


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer

Now all they need is a
scoreboard.
The Port St. Lucie Mus-
tangs finally kicked off their
inaugural season May 5,
beating the Palm Beach
Waves, 29-27, at the St.
Lucie Fairgrounds.
The Mustangs season
was delayed the past two
weeks because of problems
outside of their control.
The April 21 game against
the Miami Vice Squad was
switched to an exhibition
when referees failed to
appear, and last week an
away game in Miami was
canceled because the field
turf was too big for the
facility.
Last Saturday however,
the game ran smoothly7
with no major hiccups,
besides the one's in Port St.
Lucie's passing game. Mus-
tangs quarterback Chase
Morris only completed 2 of
12 passes for 16 yards, no
touchdowns and two inter-
ceptions, but he was able to
make up for that with his
feet.
The 2001 South Fork
High School graduate
scrambled his way for 80
yards on 14 carries, includ-.
ing the franchise's first offi-


cial touchdown, a two-yard
bootleg early in the first
quarter.
"We got to work on or
passing game a lot but we
came .out here and said
'look guys, we got to do
what we got to do to get the
ball down the field,'" said
Morris. "We got to run the
ball to score."
Mustangs head coach
Billy Butler was doused
with Gatorade at midfield
after the time expired, but
remained concerned about
his team's passing woes
during the celebration.
Butler even threw out the
possibility of benching
Morris, who has emerged
as the team leader, saying
that no job is safe on his
team.
While Morris led the
offense, it was the play of a
new addition to the
defense that' might have
had the biggest impact.
Linebacker Steve Gian-
contieri signed earlier this
year but had to sit out the
first two weeks because of a
previous commitment for
another local football
team, the Fort Pierce Fire.
A defensive captain for
the Fire the last two sea-
sons, it was clear that
"Steve-O" might be just
what the Port St. Lucie
defense needs. Teamed
with lineman Joe Ignelzi
and defensive back Johnny
Peoples, the Mustang
defense forced three inter-


ceptions, two by Peoples
(one of which was returned
for a touchdown), two goal-
line stands, and a fumble
recovery, also recovered by
Peoples.
"It feels great," said But-
ler. "It was back and forth
but the guys pulled it off.
They didn't play ball in the
first half, but the guys came
out in the second half and
played great defensive ball,
it doesn't get any better
than that."
Giancontieri also lent a
hand to the Mustangs run-
ning attack, serving as the
team's own version of
"Refrigerator" Perry bull-
dozing for seven yards on
four carries inside the five-
yard line, including a one-
yard touchdown.
"I'm used to playing
defense only, but tonight I
got to run the ball a little
bit," said Giancontieri. "It
was a totally new experi-
ence. I loved it."
The Mustangs take on
Miami, May 12, at home.
With a win under their
belts, and most of their
problems apparently
behind them, the Mustangs
will see if they can do a little,
better against the Vice
Squad, than they did in the
scrimmage April 21. Port St.
Lucie lost that game 57-17.
"(This game is) an excel-
lent stepping stone for the
team," said Giancontieri.
"It gives us a lot of courage
going into the next game."

Virtually every car dealer of educt
In Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a Sophistic
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500 much high
to nearly $1,000. This extra
charge is programmed into
your computer. It has been made illegal in
many states including California, but is still
legal in Florida. The reason you charge this
fee is simply to increase the price of the car
and your profit in such a manner that it is not
noticed by your customers. This is just plain
wrong. I used to charge a dealer fee ($495)
and when I stopped charging it a few years
ago it was scary. But I did it because I could
no longer, in good conscience, mislead my
customers. Just because everybody else

School children travel back in time aboard Nina replica


BY RITA HART
Staff writer

STUART Seventy-five
third- and fourth-grade
students from Morning-
side Academy in Port St.
Lucie stepped on board
the Nifia at the Harborage
Yacht Club Marina on April
3, and immediately
stepped back to 1492,
when Columbus sailed the
ocean blue.
The students received a
guided tour of the Nifia, a
replica ship that sailed
from Brazil for the first
time in 1991. The ship was
built entirely by hand and
is an historically accurate
reproduction of what
Christopher Columbus'
ship looked like when she
sailed from the Canary
Islands in 1492.
The tour was led by one


of the ship's crew, Ian Cop-
pock, who also serves as
the ship's cook. Mr. Cop-
pock, a native of Alabama,
has been with the Nifia for
seven months. He is
trained as an executive
chef, and said he decided
to volunteer for a tour with
the Nifia as a way to "de-
stress."
Mr. ,Coppock gave the
students a history lesson
while on board the Nifia,
first asking the students if
they knew the names of all
three of Christopher
Columbus' ships. Their
hands flew into the air as
some responded in uni-
son, "the Nifia, the Pinta,
and the Santa Maria."
The students, on board
with their teachers Kam
Combs', Sharon Turner and
Tami Mateer, learned that
the Nifia was Columbus'
favorite ship, a cargo vessel


known as a caravel.
As they stood on board,
they were able to peer
below through an open
grate into the cargo area,
where the children could
see the crew hard at work.
In Columbus' day, they
learned, the cargo area was
a place that housed one
year's worth of food and
water, along with livestock
such as pigs, chickens,
goats and even horses.
Most of the animals were a
source of food for the crew,
but the horses were used
so the officers on board
could ride them ashore.
"The officers had to be
elevated so they could be
seen as a higher power,"
explained Mr. Coppock.
The children were sur-
prised to learn that in
Columbus' day, the aver-
age age of the crew was 12.
"People started their


lives much earlier and did-
n't live as long in the 15th
century," said Mr. Cop-
pock.
Mr. Coppock explained
that the threat of mutiny
against Christopher
Columbus did exist as the
Nifia traveled more than
25,000 miles toward the
New World, partially
because many of the
young crew believed the
world was flat and they
were going to sail off the
end of the earth.
The threat, however, was
partially subdued simply
because of the appearance
of Columbus.
"The environment was
hard on the skin and eyes,"
said. Mr. Coppock.
"Christopher Columbus
was an intimidating man;
he was 5 feet, 9 inches tall,
while most Spanish men in
those days were 4 feet, 8


inches to 5 feet, 2 inches,
and Columbus had red
eyes and red skin from the
elements," said Mr. Cop-
pock.
The. school children
seemed to want to linger
on the ship even after the
tour was over.
."I really liked it, especial-
ly the wood floor," said
Rachel Raynor, 8 years-old,
who also said she could
not imagine sailing on a
ship like the Nifia at the
age of 12.
Katelyn Torres, 9, agreed.
"I think it would be scary.
They were very brave kids,"
she said.
The children said they
had learned about Christo-
pher Columbus and his
travels in school before
touring the Nifia.
"I think it's awesome,
because we did not live
back then. So this is a great


experience," said Elizabeth
Melachrinoudis, 8.
The Nifia's crew was
working hard even as the
ship was docked in Stuart.
Capt. Kyle Friauf, who
calls St. Petersburg home
during the 10 days each
month that he is off the
ship, explained that he and
his crew had just sailed
1,000 miles across the Gulf
of Mexico before arriving
in Stuart on April 2.
Next stop for the Nifia,
which set sail from Stuart
on May 6, is Brunswick,
Ga. When asked where the
ship will be when hurri-
cane season begins next
month, Capt. Friauf smiled
and said, "We will be up
north, sailing in the Great
Lakes."
