PORT ST. LUCIE A
conflict resolution meet-
ing between the Port St.
Lucie City Council and
the St. Lucie County
Board of Commissioners
resulted in plenty of con-
flict, but no resolution.
The two governing
bodies met June 7, to
discuss an agreement to
sell water to the county,
which would then pro-
vide water to customers
outside the city's urban
services boundary. If an
agreement cannot be


reached, the county has
indicated it will file a
lawsuit disputing the
urban services boundary
expansion.
While both sides have
agreed with a water
provider agreement,
there is a dispute over
who will own the water
lines.
"A concern for me is
who is going to own the
lines," Vice Mayor Jack
Kelly said.
County officials feel
they should own the
lines so there is some
control over develop-
ment in the southwest


area of St. Lucie County.
City officials contend
that if they are going to
provide water to the
southwest area, the city
should own the lines to
protect its utility.
Both sides agree that
they do not want to see
houses in the southwest
area of St. Lucie County,
but want commercial
development that would
bring jobs to the county.
"(Ownership) gives us
control," Mr. Kelly said.
"I'm not going to enable
a lower level of control of
the city through our util-
ity. Our utility is our

hammer."
The two governing
boards have been dis-
cussing the issue since
earlier this year when
Allied Universal, a
bleach manufacturing
company, requested
water service from Port
St. Lucie. Allied Univer-
sal is located west of
Rangeline Road, which is
the current services
boundary.


Florida statute allows
cities to legally expand
its service boundary up
to five miles outside a
municipality's border.
Members of the City
Council said they don't
understand why the
county would want to
get into the utility busi-
ness when both Port St.

Jai-Alai planning to begin


live poker games by Nov. 1


BY MATT DONEGAN
Staff writer
ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
More than a decade after
the idea was .first pro-
posed, county commis-
sioners last week voted
in favor of allowing Fort
Pierce Jai-Alai to begin a
card game operation.
The heads of the Kings
Highway facility are now
working with an archi-
tect on a plan to refur-
bish 4,500 square feet of
the building where 22
card tables will be locat-
ed. Once the work is
done, the poker games
will begin.
"We're shooting for the
first of November," said
Benny Collett Jr., Fort


Pierce Jai-Alai's general
manager and chief oper-
ating officer.
With established card
rooms already in place
in other counties within
the region, Edward
Becht, who is Jai-Alai's
attorney on the gaming
deal and also a Fort
Pierce city commission-
er, told the County Com-
mission that local play-
ers travel outside of St.
Lucie to play cards and
spend money.
Said Mr. Collett,
"We've gotten calls every
day for the last 10 years
about cards. People ask
if they can play cards
here, and the next ques-
tion is 'do you know
where we can?'"


The Department of
Business and Profes-
sional Regulation's Divi-
sion of Pari-Mutuel
Wagering 'reports that
from January through
April 2007, gross card
room receipts at the
Palm, Beach Kennel
Club, which is home to
the closest area card
room, totaled $6.98 mil-
lion. At Melbourne Grey-
hound Park, the figure
was $3.34 million.
It is unknown how
many of, those dollars
were wagered by St.
Lucie residents. Howev-
er, Mr. Collett said he
projects $4 million to $5
million will be bet annu-

Severely
malnourished
child weighed
35 pounds
BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE A Port
St. Lucie woman was
arrested after one of her
children was found severe-
ly malnourished and seek-
ing food from a neighbor.
Kellee Deon Murray
Auguste, 37, of 940 S.W.
Versailles Ave., was arrest-
ed June 9, and charged
with child neglect after her
10-year-old son was found


begging for food.
A woman in the 900.
block of S.W. Cornelia Ave.
called 911 on June 9, after
,the boy knocked on her
door asking for food. Port
St. Lucie Police spokesman
Officer Robert Vega said
the boy was filthy, with
matted hair, weighing only
35 pounds.
"He was begging for
food," Officer Vega said.
A normal 10-year-old boy-
should weigh between 55
and 110 pounds, according
to the Centers for Disease
Control and Preventioh's
Web site.
The woman fed the boy a
peanut butter and jelly
sandwich then called
police.
"The responding officer
saw there was an apparent
need for medical treat-
ment," Officer Vega said.
Medical personnel
responded and transport-
ed the boy to St. Lucie
Medical Center. He was
later transferred to Palms
West Hospital in Loxa-
hatchee, where he
remained at press time.
The boy told police sev-
eral stories as to where he
was living, Officer Vega
said. He said he lived in the
woods, lived in a shed
behind his house and that
his name was Mike Tyson.
While officers were deal-
ing with the boy, Ms.
Auguste called police to
report that her 10-year-old
son was missing. She told
officers who responded to
her house that her son has
been malnourished for a
month.
"The mom said the boy
was dropped off on her
doorstep four weeks ago
by his father and that the
boy has been living with
him in Haiti for the last five
years," Officer Vega said.
"She said he arrived in the
same condition, and that
he would not eat because
he would throw up every-
thing she gave him."


Kellee Deon
Murray Auguste
Officers found Ms.
Auguste's house clean,
but with little furniture
and no food in the refrig-
erator or pantry.
Officer Vega said the
woman was arrested-
because she had not
sought medical treatment
for the boy.
"It was certainly obvious,
to the officer that the boy
was in need of medical
attention," Officer Vega
said.
Ms. Auguste, who is
pregnant, has nine chil-.
dren. Seven of the chil-
dren, who are minors,;
were removed from the
home by, the Florida'
Department of Children.
and Families.
"The other children
were in good condition,"
Officer Vega said. "They
were all rather thin, but
there was nothing to
bring the average person
any concern."
Police said if Ms.
Auguste had sought help
for son, she would not
have been in trouble.
"If she would have
called a doctor or made
an effort to get his health
back to where it should.
be, she probably wouldn't
have been arrested for
child neglect," Officer
Vega said.
Police continue to
investigate the incident;.
Ms. Auguste was released;
from the St. Lucie County
Jail on bond.

Rena Tulli of Hobe Sound shows Michael Roberts, Victory Forge Boot Camp chairman of the board, some of the patch
renovations she did on her home after the hurricanes in 2004. Victory Forge members, of Port St. Lucie, have committed
the manpower to help rebuild Mrs. Tulli's; home, but they are still seeking donations of supplies.

Veterans rally to help woman in need

HOBE SOUND Rena
Tulli's property contains a
huge gardenia bush filled
with blooms. It is a sign of
hope amid complete disre-
pair.
When Hurricane Frances
hit the Treasure Coast in
2004, Mrs. Tulli, a 94-year
old Hobe Sound woman,


had an insurance compa-
ny that reimbursed her for
the storm's damages.
However, when Hurri-
cane Jeanne arrived three
weeks later, the storm took
her roof, her trees and
much more in its path.
Mrs. Tulli said the insur-
anfce company told her
this time they had paid her
once and would not do so
again.
Mrs. Tulli is a World War
II veteran who drove
trucks for the U.S. Army
during World War II and
worked in construction
after the War.
Mrs. Tulli, who still
drives daily to visit her sis-
ters, has never had a vehi-


cle accident.
"I drive the Army way. I
give all the other drivers
space," said Mrs. Tulli.
Mrs. Tulli tried to fix
some of the damage her-
'self. However, one of her
neighbors eventually tired
of looking at the damaged
property and called Martin
County Code Enforce-
ment.
That office, in turn, con-
tacted Martin County
Commissioner Lee Weber-
man, who called Tony
Reese, Veterans Service
Officer for the Veterans
Council of Martin County.
"My neighbor did me a
favor," said Mrs. Tulli. "God
sent Tony to me. He is my

What happened after
Mr. Reese met with Mrs.
Tulli, a bright and lively
woman, was a domino
effect of assistance that
poured in from many
places.
"I didn't do any more
than any other service offi-
cer would do," said Mr.
Reese, who is now assist-
ing Mrs. Tulli in getting
veteran benefits.
"When you meet her,
you get even more drawn
in. It's hard not to want to
help," said Mr. Reese, a 21-
year Navy veteran.

Toddler dies after being left in hot car
A 22-month-old died on June 10, after she was
found in a hot car in her family's driveway.
Port St. Lucie Police responded at 1:20 p.m. on Sun-
day, to a home in the 100 block of S.W. Pilsner Circle
after receiving a report of a toddler suffering a seizure.
Officers discovered the girl had snuck out of the
house and climbed into the family car. Her mother
and siblings, who went to the car to go shopping, dis-
covered the girl. They found the girl in her car seat,
suffering from a seizure.
Fire rescue was called to the scene and attempted to
provide treatment.
The girl was taken to. St. Lucie Medical Center where
she was later pronounced dead.
According to the Port St. Lucie Police Department,
the incident appears to be an accident, and police are
not seeking charges against the girl's parents.
Bond revoked for accused child molester
Robert Hasty, 77, who was arrested by the Port St.
Lucie Police Department last month after they discov-
ered he was allegedly having a sexual relationship
with a 13-year-old boy, had his bond revoked by a
judge.
Mr. Hasty was seen by police at SuperPlay USA, Rave
Motion Pictures theater and a St. Lucie West library.
Investigators believe he was looking for potential vic-
tims, since many children congregate at those busi-
nesses.
Mr. Hasty was charged with lewd and lascivious
molestation, battery and exhibition after it was dis-
covered he lured a 13-year-old boy to his home, where
he allegedly engaged in sexual acts for gifts with the
boy.
Since his arrest, another victim has come forward to
police.
Mr. Hasty was convicted in 1957 of lewd and lascivi-
ous activity and served five years in an unknown facil-
ity for that charge.
The investigation against Mr. Hasty is on-going, and
police urge anyone who has had inappropriate con-
tact with him to call police at (772) 871-5001.

house.

With the house taking a

With simulcast wagering
as the facility's top mon-
eymaker.
From January through
April, the Fort Pierce Jai-
Alai's total handle was
$537,877, all of which is
simulcast revenue.
With the addition of
tables, Mr. Collett said he
hopes to see a kind of

"Cards are popular with
younger people," he said.
"That's the hardest
demographic for us to get

for us."
About 125,000 people


come through Jai-Alai's
doors each year, he
guessed.
Aside from being aces
for both business and the
fast-paced sport of Jai-
Alai, card gaming is
expected to also positive-
ly impact the county by
bringing 32 immediate

add up to an $800,000

Plus the county will get

object to it. It's positive
for business and there is
no law enforcement
issue."
Before seeking a card
room license, Jai-Alai
officials first asked local
law enforcement for an
opinion on whether it
would bring problems.
"We checked with five
places around the state
that have this kind of
facility, and checked with
agencies that have juris-
diction to see if that type
of activity brought with it
any crime, or quality-of-
life concerns," said Fort
Pierce Police Chief Sean
Baldwin. "Overwhelm-
ingly, everybody said it
was not causing a prob-
lem with crime. With that
info in hand, there was
no basis for us to object
to bringing a card room
to Fort Pierce."
Jai-Alai is a supervised
environment where peo-
ple will play cards against
each other, not the
house. Due to state stat-
ues, the stakes will not be
high; maximum bets may
not exceed $2, and there
may not be more than
three raises in any round
of betting. Only those 18
and over will be allowed
to gamble, and the card
room is permitted to
operate only between
noon and midnight.
In 1997, the County
Commission denied its
request to begin a card
gaming operation.

ond half of 19th century
and ho a deep luster and
a rich, white color. It is rarer
and hea..ier than all pre-
cious metals and consid-
ered to be more valuable
than g.:ld
Platirunrm is often used to
:.et tre most valuable
gerris to produce the
finest je .velry.
Plotinurrm holds gem-
.tones most securely,
be,:ause 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
other 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.

Vote no on the trauma center

I think it would be a terrible mistake for St. Lucie
County voters to impose a tax upon themselves for the
so-called trauma center.
Money should be used for the public good, not a pri-
vate profit-making enterprise, which is the present situ-
ation.
The Longwood Hospital is owned by one of the world's
richest corporations. It is a for-profit entity.
I believe that it is wrong to take money off the table of
average citizens to contribute to the bottom line of
wealthy financiers and corporate owners.
My concerns about this are timely in light of the huge
tax bills that are already forcing some young families to
flee our state.
For the overall health of our economy, and for a
brighter future for all of us, not just corporate fat-cats,
vote no on the trauma center.

Local government is out of control

I am outraged by what I see in our local government.
That's the reason for our property taxes doubling and
tripling over the last four or five years.
It's out of control. Every dollar that the government
gets is spent even before they have it in their hands.
All you have to do is look at how many police officers
in our beloved St. Lucie County, whether it be county, or
local city police. Every police car is taken home.
Do you think they pay for the gas? Police officers don't
pay for the gas. They go to the local city'pump stations,
fill up, and drive home, while the rest of us slobs go to the
Hess or Exxon, and pay $3.20 to fill up.
Talk about a disgrace. That's just a small example of a
disgrace.

e seen


I do not believe that Hollywood, or whoever else,
should continue to release movies such as this over our
airways, at the movies, at home, or on the radio.
Look at all of the murder and violence that is in society
today. I think that it is at an all time high.
I am outraged. I think we should do something about
it. If this type of movie gets in the hands of the wrong
mind, whether it be a young person, or an older adult,
this can make things worse for us, the people that have to
live in the community.
The movie ends with his daughter having picked up
the same habit of killing. His daughter goes to school
and kills someone, then goes home and kills her father.
Come on, we have to do something about it.
Again, I am outraged.

Reality and perception

In response to "Go with the flow," I think you should go
with the flow on Interstate 95, or the turnpike, back to
whence you came.
Of course, that would be at 80 plus m.p.h., or so, since
that is what the flow does.
I think you should have read my rant more carefully,
because it didn't sink in.

our community, but out.
Floridians, and families from other states do make


good use of the roadways on Memorial Day, as well as
other holidays, because the highways aren't as crowded
when the snowbirds are gone.
Florida residents aren't richer than most of you. If they
were, they could afford to fly private or commercial
planes instead of driving, which takes much longer, but
is still affordable for most of us.
If everyone would just lighten up, slow down a little,
get off of his or her cell phones, and pay attention to their
driving there wouldn't be any road rage.
The perception is that you have to live and act in acer-
tain way.
The reality is, you don't.

Do no harm

I, also, have not only noticed that medical workers are
overweight.
Have you noticed that they also all try to appear, so
called, "sexy?"
Be they a nurse, or a front line worker they wear either
some, or all of the corporations version of sex.
Colored, streaked, bleached and/or permed hair.
Make up. Fake nails and perfume. You know, if you want
to pollute your own body, we're not even getting into pol-
luting the earth, for your own vanity, go right ahead.
But, when it comes to perfume, fake nails, or nail pol-
ish you are now infringing on my right to my health.
If I am anywhere in the vicinity of you, and you're
wearing perfume, you are forcing me to breath in your
cancer-causing agent.
If you are touching my body or I am taking a pen from
your hand and your nails are covered, I have no way to
evaluate just how clean or dirty your nails might be.
Not to mention that you might accidentally scratch me
with your long nails, and don't you dare and try to tell me
that's never happened. The problem with fake nails is
that they do actually harbor bacteria.
Perhaps the oath is for doctors only, but shouldn't all
health care workers "do no harm"?
I ask you, is it the nature of your job that twists and
perverts your perception of good health?
Yea, yea, yea, nurses are great, but aren't you in the job

Letters


Port St. Lucie special events
might be cancelled

This letter is to clarify a statement by Tonya Taylor of our
Parks and Recreation Department on May 19, regarding the
possible cancellation of various cultural activities.
The local programs referred to in the article are, in fact,
self-supporting groups that requested parks and recreation
assistance. Not as stated "help put on." They did a fine job
doing what they did.
For six years I chaired and directed the Port St. Lucie festi-
val of lights committee's seven members.
For four years I chaired the Cultural Redevelopment Asso-
ciation cultural and special events committee's seven mem-
bers.
This committee coordinated with the Friendly Sons and
Daughters of Ireland for the St. Patrick's Day program, the
Port St. Lucie German American Club for Octoberfest, and
the St.. Lucie Art League for Arts and all that Jazz.
During the years prior to 2006, our two committees
worked autonomously with only the necessary and request-


ed help from the Parks and Recreation Department. I will
repeat, they did a fine job when asked to help.
As to the future, I am sure the aforementioned-groups will
provide a cultural program on their own, as they have in the
past.
I wish them all good luck, and God speed to all.

More support for our troops is needed

Every day I read in the newspaper the names and statistics
of soldiers who have died in the war in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The number of U.S. soldiers killed in this war is over 3,000
now. Yet, in driving down the streets and highways in Port St.
Lucie, I see very little signs of recognition for our patriotic
men and women who are fighting to sustain our freedom.
I remember right after 9-11,1 saw U.S. flags outside of peo-
ple's homes. I also saw lots of support our troops decals on
peoples' vehicles.
Lately, I see very little signs of recognition and support for


out troops.
I do not have, nor do I know of anyone personally fighting
in the war, but I do know that, as an American, I need to let
the soldiers who come home on leave know that I support
them.
I also feel that it would help the families of soldiers who
lost their lives in this war know that America is behind them,
and that their sons and daughters did not lose their lives in
vain.
I have taught fifth-grade American history for many years,
and I know the sacrifices that our forefathers had to make so
America could be a free democratic society.
. There is a lot of debate going on in the country on whether
we should be in this war or not.
As long as our soldiers are in this war, we need to support
them. As citizens of the United States of America we need to
outwardly show our troops that we support them 100 per-
cent, and appreciate the sacrifices they axe making for us.

Five years, and a cloud of dust


In business, there are
two important mile-
stones you look to reach
when you are starting out.
First is the one-year
anniversary.
Making it through the
first year means you had a
good idea, a good business
plan and were prepared to
face whatever obstacles
came your way.
In the United States,
more than 50 percent of
new businesses don't make
it to the first year.
The second milestone is
the five-year anniversary.
The general line of
thought is, if you make it to
year five, odds are good for
a long-term, successful
business. In the United
States, 50 percent of the
businesses that make it to
the one-year mark don't
make it to the five-year
mark.
Starting and operating a
business is a lot of hard
work. Unless you are one
of the lucky ones who
-either invent a product or
stumble onto one that the
world is just waiting for, as7
the percentages show, the
odds are against you.
Well, friends, I am
pleased to share with you
that Hometown News has
beaten the odds.
This week marks our
five-year anniversary.
On June 14, 2002, a
group of 22 full-time
entrepreneurs and risk-
takers launched what
would become the fastest-
growing newspaper -
company in the history of
independent newspapers.
We have a group that
would be honored and
recognized by its peers
unlike any newspaper
group before, evolving into
a story so incredible, so
implausible, and so


unprecedented that
without first-hand knowl-
edge, one could only
believe that it was the
making of a Hollywood
script.
The truth is, if I was not
here watching all of this
happening around me, I
would never believe it.
What has happened here
at Hometown News just
doesn't happen. The only
place it could is in the
imagination and space of a
two-hour feature film.
There are a few people
in the country that have
been in this business
longer than I, but not
many, and even fewer who
have been involved in as
many different projects
around the country as I.
Point is, I know this
business. I have been in
this business, for about 26
years.
My family and I relocat-
ed 20 times in 20 years, all
over the U.S. My older son,
Matt, graduated high
school with honors, after
attending 17 different
schools. We have seen a lot.
Neither we, nor anyone I
know, have ever seen
anything like! Hometown
News.
I understand when I tell
our story at a speaking
engagement or an industry
conference, and an indi-
vidual upon hearing this
story looks at me with that
"You are so full of it, Steve"
look.
If five years ago someone
had come to me and
reported the following, I
would have given them
that same look.
Starting three papers
with a 65,000 circulation,
within the first year
Hometown News was
consistently delivering
better results to the
advertisers than the daily





STEVE ERLANGER
Publisher/CO.0.
newspaper because of the
tremendous readership.
Within three years,
Hometown News was
publishing 19 different
newspapers and delivering
520,000 copies each week,
making it the largest
circulated newspaper in
the state of Florida and one
of the largest in the coun-
try.
We grew from 22 full-
time and 30 part-time
team members to more
than-160 full-time and
approximately 225 part-
time team members in
those same three years.
In the first year of
existence, Hometown News
was the top award-winning
newspaper group in the
country at a national
conference and voted as
being one of the top three
community newspapers in
America by two different
national newspaper
associations. In the FIRST
year!
Hometown News is the
only newspaper ever to be
voted as one of the top
three community newspa-
pers in America by one or
both national associations
five years in a row, and
three of those years were
for No. 1.
We have been the top
award-winning communi-


ty newspaper group in the
state for each of the five
years of existence.
Hometown News has
been voted Business of the
Year in two different
counties and honored by
dozens of nonprofit,
charitable organizations
and civic groups for its
unmatched support.
We have an employee
turnover rate that is a
fraction of the national
industry average.
Team members give 155
percent effort all the time,
and they are happy.
The community really
appreciates the newspa-
per.
The newspaper is
managed by what has been
described as "the best
newspaper management
team in America."
This just doesn't happen
in business and definitely
not in the newspaper
business. Until now.
It has been a whirlwind
of excitement. For those of
us on our team who have
been in the business for a
while, these first five years
have been like a dream, a
newspaper person's dream.
It works; it really works.
The paper is the best-
read publication anyone
has ever seen.
Our readers appreciate
the local focus.
Our advertisers are
happy. Hundreds have told
us it is the best marketing
they have ever done.
We have the most
dedicated and devoted
group of individuals that
have come together as a
team, working toward the
same goals, making this
organization a top priority
in their lives and being
excited every day to do it
again. This is a dream
come true.

Trauma centers there


for entire community


SPECIAL FOR
HOMETOWN NEWS

A en most
\ people think of
V trauma centers,
they envision the most
obvious service of
saving lives when every
minute counts. We think
of car crashes, serious
workplace injuries, and
violent crimes.
But a trauma center
provides much more
than life-saving emer-
gency care. A major goal
of Trauma Centers is to
reduce traumatic injury
through prevention.
Everyone in the
community is at risk for
injury. A staggering 49
percent of all deaths are
caused by injury. It is
the leading cause of
death in people under
40 and affects more
people than heart
disease, cancer, and
AIDS combined. If we
think of injury as a
disease that is preventa-
ble, I'm sure we would
all agree that this is one
epidemic that needs
serious attention in
every community.
Trauma centers play a
lead role in prevention
and education in the
communities they serve.
Outreach to senior
citizens, who are one of
the fastest growing
populations that experi-
ence trauma, is critical.
As our population
ages with baby
boomers, we are seeing
more injuries from falls
at an alarming rate.
Falls are a significant
source of trauma. When
a senior falls in the
bathtub or trips on a
carpet walking through


their home, they are at
significant risk for
major trauma to their
head. With many sen-
iors taking blood thin-
ners, a fall is a life
threatening injury.
First and foremost, a
trauma center provides
the appropriate level of
care for those victims
with trauma and neuro-
surgeons immediately
available to treat them.
But, preventing that
injury in the first place
is the goal. That's where
trauma center outreach
becomes very valuable.
Along with seniors,
targeted groups for
education are children.
Bike safety, and the
importance of following
road rules and the use
of helmets can consid-
erably decrease injuries
sustained from bike
accidents.
Prom night education
is aimed to help teens
understand the dangers
of alcohol and drugs
and how quickly that
special night can
change from celebra-
tion to tragedy.
Trauma centers work
with law enforcement
and medical examiners
to reinforce to violent
first offenders the
impact their behavior
has on others and will
most likely eventually
end in their own injury
or death.
Injury prevention in
the work place is impor-
tant to employers and
their employees as well..
Nationally the cost of
lost wages and medical
expenses due to trauma
is over $500 billion
dollars.

Company shutters out hurricane winds

Expert Shutter Services providing protection on Treasure Coast since 1988


BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
: PORT ST. LUCIE For
nearly 20 years, Mike Heis-
senberg has been protect-
ing windows on the Trea-
sure Coast.
As owner of Expert Shut-
ter Services in Port St.
Lucie, Mr. Heissenberg has
built his business on refer-
rals and strives to provide
the best product for resi-
dents.
Mr. Heissenberg started
Expert Shutter Services in
1988, after seeing a need for
shutters in the area. He
helped start a shutter com-
pany in Riviera Beach,
which he managed. The
company did work on
homes on the Treasure
Coast, where Mr. Heis-
senberg saw an opportuni-
ty.
"We saw a tremendous
potential up here," he said.
"We thought the best thing
would be to start a compa-
ny of our own up here."
With the help of his wife,
Jamie, Expert Shutter Ser-


vices opened its doors in
February 1988. It was just
the two of them operating
the business at ,the time,
doing "a lot of repair and
service work," Mr. Heis-
senberg said.
But the business did not
stay small for long.
"The company has grown
by leaps and bounds every
year," Mr. Heissenberg said.
"We set and have achieved,
our goals every year. We
attribute a great deal of our
success to our employees
and their dedication to
achieving a level of cus-
tomer satisfaction, that the
company wants to see."
The company now has 42
employees, including Mr.
Heissenberg's two sons,
Michael and Christopher,
as well as their fiancees and
Mrs. Heissenbierg's sister.
Many of the employees
have been with the compa-
ny for 10 to 15 years.
"When we say we are a
family-owned and operat-
ed company, we mean it,"
Mr. Heissenberg said.
Expert Shutter Services


provides a variety of hurri-
cane shutters, from tradi-
tional aluminum panels to
automatic roll down shut-
ters, for homes, businesses
and condominiums.
Mr. Heissenberg also
holds a patent for a new
accordion shutter system
he designed and devel-
oped, and is used through-
out the United States and
the Caribbean. The high
velocity accordion shutters
have an improved track
system, higher strength
and takes up less space.
All of the shutters sold by
Expert Shutter Services are
custom made for each cus-
tomer, Mr. Heissenberg
said, with residents receiv-
ing a thorough explanation
on how the product works.
Every shutter sold comes
with a five-year warranty.
Since a lot of business
comes from referrals, cus-
tomer service is a priority
for Mr. Heissenberg.
"We make certain our
customers' expectations
are met," he said. "If a
salesperson goes out and


builds a certain expecta-
tion, we make sure every-
one delivers on those
expectations."
That means employees
arrive at appointments on
time, deliver a product that
the customer wants and
that the customer is happy
with that product, Mr.
Heissenberg said.
"For us, it matters that we
do every job right," he said.
"The bottom line is that the
customer is satisfied. We
tell customers to let us
know how they feel about
the product. If there are
any questions or concerns,
we'll address it. Our cus-'
tomers know we're willing
to go the extra mile for
them."

Expert Shutter Services is
located at 1626 S.W. Bilt-
more St., Port St. Lucie.
The office is open from 9
a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday
Through Friday.

Good food a forum for popular column, lasting friendships


H ello, smart shop-
pers. June 15 is the
fifth anniversary of
Hometown Newis.
I've know Steve Erlanger,
publisher, Tammy Raits,
vice president/managing
editor and the amazing
Phil Galdys, vice presi-
dent/production, since
1996. We were all part of a
previous weekly paper.
When that ended,


everyone went their
separate ways, but as luck
would have it, when Steve
contacted all the original
people and columnists, we
all came back.
Because of more money?
No way. It was because
of the camaraderie.
When Steve pulled me
away from a big-name
paper he said, "I promise
I'll make you famous, but


I'll never make you rich!"
Ile kept his word.
When Steve was born,
no one had ever heard of
attention deficit disorder
or attention deficit hyper-
active disorder.
I'm sure he drove his
poor mother crazy as he
went every which way but
loose.
Steve is an enigma.
His energy is endless


and he never is in one
place for very long. He's
got the power. He even has
an acronym to describe
himself, TGOA: The God of
Advertising.
Was someone else
responsible for the title or
did he name himself?
I'll never tell.
Tammy I've know since
1994 when she was an
assistant editor for a daily
paper.
When I met with her and
told her I wanted to write a
column that teaches how
to shop smart in the
supermarket, save money
and cut the fat and choles-
terol she said, "Will you
come live with me?"
However, her publisher
said no.
But she saved my
business card and a year
later called me, and my
column was born.
Phil, Sean McCarthy,
who writes the "Compute
This" column and Pat
Snyder, head of classified
joined us at Hometown
News, and you must agree,
it's all a perfect mix.
*
Since Father's Day is
Sunday, here is a delicious
dessert to serve the special
guy. Enjoy and see you
next week.

NEW YORK
CHEESECAKE

This cheesecake is by far
the best you've ever
tasted. It is the true,
heavy, rich, New York
cheesecake.
Many recipes were tried
until I finally learned that
the secret to a spectacular
cheesecake is not only in
the ingredients, but also
in the method of baking.
This makes a large cake.
You will need a 9- or 10-
inch spring form pan.

Crust:
Graham cracker piecrust
mix
1/4 cup alihonds, finely
chopped (optional)

Prepare graham cracker
crust according to package
directions, adding
almonds if you like. Press
into bottom of spring form

pan and bake in a 375-
degree E, preheated oven
for 10 minutes until lightly
browned. Let cool.
While the crust is
baking, prepare filling.

Filling:
2-1/2 pounds cream
cheese (five 8-ounce
packages)
3 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon each: grated
lemon and orange rind
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
extract
1-3/4 cups sugar
5 large eggs
2 egg yolks
1/4 cup heavy cream

Combine first the first
four ingredients; beat
with an electric mixer at
second speed. Add sugar
gradually. Add eggs and
egg yolks one at a time,
beating lightly after each
addition. (If the speed is
too high when adding the
eggs, too much air gets
into the batter and
produces a cake of
inferior consistency). Stir
in cream.
Pour into prepared
pan. Bake in a 450-degree
F, preheated oven for 10
minutes. (During baking,
place a pan of water on
the bottom rack to
prevent cake from
cracking).
Reduce heat to 300
degrees and continue
baking 1-1 1/2 hours
until almost set in center.
Turn oven off and leave
cake in for 1 hour.
Open oven door and
leave cake in for 10
minutes longer.
Let cool, chill and


remove sides of pan. Top
with any glaze or fruit of
your choice, or serve it
plain with a side or two
of different fruit top-
pings.

QUICK CHERRY
CHEESECAKE

This recipe is quick and
easy. It can be made low-
fat, but not fat-free.

2 (8-ounce) packages
cream cheese, regular or
low-fat
2/3 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs
1 cup sour cream,
regular or low-fat
1 large graham cracker
crumb crust

Cream sugar and cream
cheese. Add eggs one at a.
time, mixing well after
each addition. Add
vanilla, mix. Fold in sour
cream.
Pour in piecrust and
bake at 350 degrees E for
about 40 minutes. Cool
and chill.
Serve topped with
cherry pie filling or any
topping of your choice.

Rants
From page A6
to help people? I assume,
help them remain healthy.

Share the road
with cyclists
I am writing to rant and
rave, as many avid cyclists
have before, to express my
concerns regarding road
courtesy to cyclists.
First of all, for all of you
who yell, "Get on the side-
walk," it is against the law
to ride on the sidewalk.
For those (who) get away
with it, that's up to any
police officer who pre-
tends not to see them.
Secondly, when we
cyclists are riding as close
to the right side of the lane
as we possibly can, if you
have that open left lane,
which you usually do, go
into it and go around us.
I have at times, more
than I can count, been
nearly hit by cars who just
can't seem to fathom get-
ting into that left lane.
Hello? You're not going to
get anywhere faster and
you may possibly save a
life.
Just think, that's all I ask.
I have lived in many
places as. a military spouse,
and I have never seen
more reckless, careless,
and dangerous drivers as
in the state of Florida.

Supporting bigotry
waste of tax money
I have to disagree that it
makes any sense whatsoev-
er to round up and deport all
illegal aliens.
You would need to
demonstrate any long-term
gain against the cost of this
operation.
To round up all 12 mil-
lion would likely cost way
more than it would ever
save. It would never pay for
itself.
Empty phrases like "bur-
den on health care and
schools" are never, ever
backed up with any real
information in the letters I
read.
The deported "illegals"
would almost certainly
come right back to the U.S.
anyway.
I personally sense big-
otry in every anti-immigrant
letter I see in any publication
I read.
The KKK is rumored to
be growing fast again, target-
ing "illegals" instead of
African Americans (reported
by Reuters anid Associated
Press news services). Hate
can raise some serious
money.
How about leaving these
poor immigrants alone and
letting (Immigration and
Nationalization Service)
continue their efforts?
Armchair politicians base
easy solutions on lack of
knowledge of the problem
they face.
Trying to get the govern-
ment to support your own
bigotry is a huge waste of
taxpayer dollars.

Bush administration
not keeping us safe
It bothers me when peo-
ple say that this incompe-
tent administration has
kept us safe since Sept. 11.
I have to remind them
that Sept. 11 happened on
Bush's watch, despite
many, many warnings
(that) we were on the verge
of being attacked.
If terrorists wanted to kill
Americans as they have
stated, all they would have
to do is walk across the
Mexican border.


But there's no need to go
through the trouble, as
Bush keeps sending more
troops as targets to satisfy
their lust to kill Americans.

Bad mix for the U.S.
melting pot
All U.S. citizens are a
product of immigration be
it first, second or third gen-
eration.


However, our ancestors
did not invade America
and force their language
and culture upon others.
They came to America
legally, had to have a spon-
sor, be in good health and
not be a burden to society.
My own grandparents
came from Ireland and
Lithuania in the 1l 20s
legally and worked asg-and-
scapers and housekeepers
on estates in Long Island.
Here we are in 2007 with


12, 15 or maybe 20 million
undocumented lawbreak-
ers.
IHow did this happen,
especially since (Sept. 11)?
Why haven't our immi-
gration laws been
enforced?
Two obvious answers are
cheap labor and more cus-
tomers.
We should sue our gov-
ernment for not enforcing
the law.
All American citizens


have a cultural heritage,
but there has never been a
special "dial one for Ger-
man, dial two for Italian,"
etc.
Why must we dial one

Investors

are extremely knowledge-
able and have resources,"
said Robert Dombkowski,
chairman and co-founder
of Angel Investors Forum
of Florida. "We have a great
place to live, but had no
organization in place to
tap into the resources of
our retirees."
The group meets once a
month, giving business
owners an opportunity to
present their ideas to
potential investors.' Mr.
Knoska was one of the first
presenters when the Angel
Investors started. Although
he was unsuccessful in
securing funding for his
business, Yacht Watchman
International in Stuart, Mr.


Knoska supports the
group.
"It's such a wonderful
opportunity," he said. "The
people are very knowl-
edgeable. The process of
raising money is tough."
Mr. Knoska has devel-
oped a monitoring system
for watercrafts, which
alerts boat owners to any
problem on their boats. He
holds two patents for the
system and is eight-to 10-
weeks away from market..
"It's a tough road to have
a business where technol-
ogy is involved," Mr. Knos-
ka said. "Then you have to
raise money to further the
technology. I've spent a lot
of money so far, using
mostly my own money and
money from friends and
family."
After going to friends


and family for financial
backing, many entrepre-
neurs will still need funds.
That's where angel
investors help, Mr. Dom-
bkowski said.
"There is a void between
friends and family help
and venture capitalists," he
said. "Angels usually cover
between $50,000 to $2 mil-
lion, and it is done by an
individual to help get a
company to young adult-
hood. Then the company
will be in the league to
qualify for venture capital.
Without Angels, there
would be no one for the
business community."
Venture capitalists are
financial backers, usually
associated with banks,
who provide financial sup-
port to businesses in
exchange for shares in the

We all know that a
company is only as strong
as the team that supports
it. This is the strength of
Hometown News. I cannot
thank enough the team
that has made this all
possible (And, unfortu-
nately, I can't thank them
individually here due to
space limitations). Every
team member is impor-
tant. Everyone plays a vital
role in our success. I have
said many times to our
management team, it
doesn't really matter how
good you are, (and they
are very good); without
our team we have nothing.
We have professionals
on our team who could go
anywhere in the country
and name their price.
Every newspaper group in
America would sell their
soul if they could to gain
the services of the mem-
bers of our team. Otr guys
are that good, and it
shows.
No mention of Home-
town News could be
complete without a "thank
you" to our partner, Mr.
Vernon Smith.
He is the gentleman that
five years ago called me
and said he wanted to


start a newspaper compa-
ny. It was his vision, and
financial backing, that
made this dream possible.
Many of you know Vernon;
for those who don't,
Google him. He is an
incredible man. My life, as
well as the lives of many
others, is far better from
the lessons and insight we
have learned from Vernon.
To you, my friends, our
readers and clients, a big
"thank you" as well.
We are so proud we have
been able to provide you
with the best in local news
coverage for these five
years (or less if you are in
one of our later estab-
lished markets) and so
glad you have invited us
into your home and your
heart. We want to be your
local newspaper. Without
your support, we would
not be here. See, that is
how it works. We support
you, and you support us.
We're a team.
Let us know how we can
better serve you. Odds are,;
we are going to be around
for a long time.

Yucatan areas beyond Cancun worth seeing www.adamspest.biz
t,' Locally Owned & Operated Since 1990


I know most people go
to the Yucatan
because of Cancun. As
for me, I fly into Cancun,
but I rarely stay there.
My heart lies outside
the city with the Mayan
people and, the ancient
sites.
For many years, I led
trips to the Yucatan, but I
hadn't been back in a
while. Then I noticed an
ad for $16 tickets on
Spirit Airlines from
Florida to Cancun.
I could only get seats
for a four-day trip, but
that was enough for me.
The problem was the
special price was.just for
September travel, hurri-
cane season. Luckily, the
weather cooperated last
year.
I met my friends at the
Cancun Airport, rented a
car and set off on the toll
road for Piste and
Chichen Itza. The tolls,
cost us a whopping $20
for a three-hour ride, but
it saved a lot of time.
Finally, we got to the
sleepy town of Piste,
home of the ruins. We'd
tour them tomorrow, but
now we just wanted to get
to our hotel, Hacienda
Chichen.
I always try to find
charming hotels when I
travel, and this one was
no exception.
Hacienda Chichen is a
lovely 16th century
colonial mansion com-
plete with guest. bunga-
lows, pool, spa, restau-
rant and gardens. It
certainly passed the
charm test.
Once we checked in, we
had a siesta followed by
dinner with mariachis.
Later I headed for the

pool and a moonlight
swim, all the while being
serenaded by the crickets
and frogs of the sur-
rounding jungle.
After breakfast, we met
our Mayan guide. He took
us on'a tour of Chichen
Itza, the premier Mayan
site in the Yucatan.
We saw the ball court,
observatory, sacred
cenote (a well), the
massive Pyramid of
Kukulkan and more. Later
we visited the nearby
Balankanche Caves,
which were filled with
Mayan artifacts and an
underground lake.
A guided tour is offered
in English every few
hours.
We entered the caves
despite the heat and
wound our way through
them, overwhelmed by
their beauty.
Then we drove through
the Mayan countryside to
the ancient site of Coba.
These ruins have barely
been excavated and the
jungle still covers 90
percent of it.
You can't miss the
towering, pointed pyra-
mids, however. It's quite a
hike to get to them, but
some smart entrepreneur
decided to set up a
rickshaw and bicycle
business to make things
easier.
When we finally got to
the pyramids, we climbed
the precarious steps to
the top, getting a great
view of the jungle from
what's actually the
highest point in the
Yucatan.
Next it was on to the
seaside town of Tulum.
When I first visited
years ago, there were few

hotels, Mostly there were
cabanas right on the
beach, complete with
swinging beds and just
enough electricity to fire
up the blender for an
evening margarita.
Today Tulum is still
charming, but with a lot
more choices.
This time we stayed at
American-owned Zamas,
a fascinating oceanfront
compound complete with
pool, store, restaurant,
hotel rooms and bunga-
lows.,
Dinner was our first
order of business and it
did not disappoint, nor
did any meal at Zamas.
Afterward we went to
our rooms for the night.
Mine was an upstairs
room that could sleep
five. The decor was a mix
of rustic Mexican, eclec-
tic modern and art deco.
It was unique and totally
charming.
One person in our
group played the banjo,
so eventually, we all
gathered on my porch,
swinging away in our
hammocks and singing
under the Mexican stars.

set off on a guided tour of
Sian Ka'an Biosphere, a
place I'd always wanted
to see.
After a short drive, we
boarded a boat and
headed out through the
marshlands, mangroves,
lagoons and lakes of the
Biosphere.
We saw loads of birds,
but imagine what it must
look like during migra-
tion.
We loved everything,
especially when our
guide told us it was time
to float.
Little did we know
floating meant lying back
on.our flattened lifejack-
ets and letting the cur-
rent take us endlessly
downstream.
It was amazing and
Sian Ka'an was certainly
worth it.
If we'd had more time
we could have swum in
some of the nearby
cenotes, but we were off
to explore the stunning
seaside ruins of Tulum.
Tomorrow would be
our last day on this very
abbreviated journey to
the Yucatan, but as
always, it did not disap-
point.
And with $16 airline
tickets, how could you go
wrong?

to become catastrophic.

politicians is despicable,
and the rest of Americans
of all nationalities feel
disenfranchised.
'Any member of Con-
gress who votes to allow
this insane amnesty
(should) get booted out of
office.

Hispanics upset kids
don't speak Spanish

I hate to bust your bub-
ble, but most immigrants
do not learn to speak the
language and stay within
an area comprised by
those whd speak the
same language.
I've heard and read
many claim how their
ancestors had to deal
with a new language and
how they learned it, but
the truth is that it isn't
until the second and
more likely the third gen-
eration where they pick
up the local language.
In Hispanic homes, we


don't have a problem
with English; on the con-
trary, we have a problem
with our kids not speak-
ing Spanish.
I myself did not learn
Spanish until I was in my
20s.
(By the way), the guy
who complained about
having to pay for a Span-
ish channel should know
that we too would like to
select our list of channels
to watch.
I certainly could care
less for the outdoor chan-
nel, or speed or the shop-
ping networks.
But you know what?
You have to take the
package they give you.

Web site highlights
companies that hire
illegals

This (is in) regards to a
recent rant about going
after companies who hire


illegals.
(The Web, site)
www.wehirealiens.com is
a site anyone with a com-
puter may find interest-
ing.
Phone numbers for ICE
(Immigration and Cus-
tom Enforcement), and
other offices are listed.
And there is a form by
which a person may
report companies they
suspect are (hiring) ille-
gals.

Lying spouses not
just a male problem

I am a man who has a
slightly different twist to
the rant "Wake up and be
honest."
I've been divorced for
about 10 years and I've
had several women who
either have not told me or
out-and-out lied to me
that they are not married
or divorced or whatever
the case may be.


I actually had one
woman move in with me,
and two weeks after, I
found out she was still
technically married. She
hadn't been living with
her husband in quite a
while, but she had never
been divorced from him.
He showed .up at our
house.
I've also had several
women out-and-out lie
that they are either
divorced or had never
been married, and it
turns out they are mar-
ried (and) still living with
their husbands.
So it's not just men
(who) lie to women about
their marital status.
It works both ways.

Harming helpless
animals beyond cruel

I've just come from my
veterinarian's office
where I asked about a kit-
ten with an injured nose.
I was told that this was
the only one a staff mem-
ber was able to rescue
after witnessing someone
throwing kittens from
their moving vehicle!
You can use your imagi-
nation about what hap-
pened to the rest of the
kittens.
There is no excuse for
doing something so evil
to harmless and innocent
kittens, or any animal.
This is just another
horrible example of why
spaying and neutering is
so very important, espe-
cially if you allow your
pet to roam.
We must not provide
other Victims for those
who possess no con-
science.

provide services to the
unincorporated county.
"I firmly believe we
should draw a line down
Midway Road, and let
Fort Pierce take every-
thing to the north and we
take everything to the
south," Councilman
Christopher Cooper said.
"We're a utility, so what's
wrong with us providing
water?"
County Commissioner
Chris Craft said with the
city providing bulk water
to the county, the city
will be assured that their
wells will be protected
from developers who
may want to start theit
own utility.
"You will get the secu-
rity for your wells and
you ask about having
confidence the utility is
protected," Commission-
er Craft said. "You will be
the only utility out
there."
The county has pro-
posed that if they own
the lines, the city could
supervise the construc-
tion to ensure they are
built to city specifica-
tions. The city could also
perform yearly inspec-
tions of water lines.
Although the next step
in the conflict resolution
is mediation, both gov-
erning boards agreed to
meet again to try and
iron out their differ-
ences.
"I think it would be
beneficial to schedule
another meeting so we
have a chance to talk
with staff," Commission-
er Craft said. "I really
want to keep this out of
court. We need to take
baby steps with this."

Veterans


From page A3
Alan Weierman of the Vic-
tory Forge Military Acade-
my in Port St. Lucie and
Col. Michael Roberts of
Special Forces Restoration
and Construction.
Early on Saturday, June
9, a busload of cadets from
Port St. Lucie's Victory
Forge Military Academy's
Cadets for Vets organiza-
tion pulled up to Mrs.
Tulli's property to begin
rebuilding what they
could.
By noon, they had
-already built new stairs
leading to Mrs. Tulli's back
porch and were starting to
.put up screening. The
porch is where Mrs. Tulli,
who has no air condition-
ing, sleeps when it is too
hot in the house.
The property consists of
two buildings, a main
home and a guest house,
that through the years
housed Mrs. Tulli, her four
brothers and her two sis-
ters. Her brothers, WWII
veterans themselves, are
gone now, but her sisters
live elsewhere in Hobe
Sound.
The guest house is where
Mrs. Tulli now stays
because the main house is
uninhabitable.
Despite the fact she
attempted her own repairs,
"They didn't like the way I
fixed the roof," said Mrs.
Tulli with a laugh.
A Florida resident for 60
.years, Mrs. Tulli had one


child, Louis, who was
drafted into the Vietnam
War and died as a result of
the conflict.
Once Mr. Reese assessed
Mrs. Tulli's situation, it was
clear she needed much
help.
She suffers from shingles
and has amassed $25,000
in medical bills. Mr. Reese
is attempting to get her
insurance through the Vet-
eran's Council, which will
save her about $300 per
month in premiums. She
plans on using that money
to start paying off her
unreimbursed expenses.
Mrs. Tulli is hard of hear-
ing, and is looking forward
to getting hearing aids
soon.
"It's the number one
thing I want," she said.
The interior of her prop-
erty needs new kitchen
cabinets, she has no shut-
ters for her windows and
tree stumps and weeds
must be pulled. The house
has rotting fascia and
needs new windows, sid-
ing and paint.
Offers continue to pour
in for assistance. Nicholas
Sanitation, Hobe Sound
Sherwin Williams, Ben-
jamin Plumbing, 84 Lum-
ber of Jensen Beach, Palm
City Screening and Hobe
Sound Aluminum all
donated materials.
Austin's Smoke House of
Hobe Sound even donated
lunch for the cadets and


others who were diligently
working under the hot sun
on Mrs. Tulli's home.
The cadets and others
will return on Saturday,
July 14 to complete their
renovations.
In the interim, there is
much more needed in
terms of materials and
supplies to keep Mrs. Tulli
safe for the next hurricane.
Organizers are asking for
donations from the public,
so Mrs. Tulli can live in her
home safely for her
remaining years.
A former Red Cross vol-
unteer, Mrs. Tulli has
always prided herself on
being self-sufficient. She
still wears her WWII dog
tags, because she doesn't
carry a purse and this is
her form of identification
should it be needed.
It has been difficult for
her to accept all the help
she's been given in a short
time.
But as she walked among
the young men in military
fatigues who were on lad-
ders, atop her roof and fix-
ing her porch, she smiled
and said, "They are my
angels."
To offer donations of
money or supplies to assist
in the renovations, contact
Inez Frid, a volunteer with
the Victory Forge Military
Academy at (772) 370-4571
or Tony Reese at (772) 288-
5448.

Get off the fence and accept Elijah's challenge to you


A hab became the
seventh King of Israel
S JLfter the reign of King
Asa. King Ahab ruled from
Samaria. He was more evil
than any of the rulers that
had come before him.
KingAhab married
Jezebel, daughter of Ethbaal,
King of Sidon. When she
arrived in Samaria, she
continued to worship the
pagan god Baal. Jezebel
encouraged.her husband,
,his court, and the whole
nation of Israel to turn away
from the God of Abraham,
and to worship the idol,
Baal.
King Ahab built a luxuri-
ous ivory palace; it has
recently been unearthed.
More notably, he built
temple for Baal worship.
Then he made an Asherah
pole; the stem of a tree,
shaped into an image that
represented the sensual
Canaanite goddess Asherah.
The Lord called a faithful
man named Elijah, the
prophet, to confront King
Ahab regarding idolatry.
Elijah said to KingAhab "'As
surely as God lives, in the
next few years there will be a
total drought, without a
drop of dew or rain, unless I
say so!"
Sure enough, all dew and
rain stopped. Worshippers
of Baal believed that Baal
was a weather god who
brought rain and storms.
Then the Lord told Elijah
"Go east and hide by
Cherith Brook, where you
will have water to drink. I
have ordered the ravens to

Sure enough, both
morning and evening,
ravens brought him bread
and meat in their beaks!
When the brook dried up,
Elijah lodged with a widow
whose only supplies were a
handful of flour and a small
amount of oil, for her and
her son to eat their last meal.
Elijah said to the widow.
"Don't be afraid, go ahead
and cook the meal, but first
bake me a small cake of
bread."
Then God spoke through
Elijah, and told the widow
that the flour and oil would

last until rain came, and the
drought ended. The next
day she was amazed to find
that the flour and oil had
supernaturally been
supplied!
After three years of
drought, King Ahab accused
Elijah of troubling Israel.
Elijah responded by telling
the king to summon all of
the people of Israel, 450
prophets of Baal and 400
priests of Ashram, to Mount
Carmel. Here he issued a
challenge.
Elijah asked the people of
Israel, "How long are you
going to sit on the fence? If
the God of Abraham is the
one and only true God,
follow him; if it is Baal,
follow him. Make up your
minds."
Elijah spoke again and
said, "Now bring two young
bulls. The prophets of Baal
may choose whichever one
they wish. Cut it into pieces,
and lay it on the wood of the
altar, but don't ignite it. I'll
take the other bull. When it


is my time, I will cut it up
and lay it on the wood also,
but I will not light it."
Elijah said to the prophets
of Baal, "You pray to your
god, and I will pray to my
God. The God who sends
fire from heaven to light the
wood will prove to be the
true God."
Ahab and Jezebel's priests
called upon Baal to send fire
to light the sacrificial
offering. They prayed all
morning, going into a trance
and dancing, but there was
not a spark, or a puff of
smoke! Elijah mocked them,
"Shout louder, maybe your
god is napping!" So they
shouted louder, but nothing
happened!
Elijah took twelve stones,
one for each tribe of Israel,
and built an altar. He dug a
trench around it to hold
water. He arranged the
wood, and laid the sacrifice
upon it. In spite of the
drought, he ordered four
barrels of precious water to
be poured over the sacrifice,
soaking the wood and filling
the trench.
He called upon his God,
and the fire fell, and con-
sumed the sacrifice, wood,
stones, and the dust and
licked up the water from the
trench! When the people
saw it, they fell on their
faces, saying, "The Lord, he
is the God."
The rains came later that
day, proving to KingAhab,
and the people of Israel, that


Dear Friends and Family
It is difficult to find the words to express our gratitude for
the many kindnessess you have shown us during this very
sad time.
We are so grateful for all you have done for us. The cards,
letters, mass cards, prayers, phone and email messages and
most of all the Celebration of Tom's Life that took place at Indian Riverside Park.
To have arrived home after an entire funeral and repast in New Jersey for him and
to have all this taken care of was truly amazing. The sense of community was so
strong, I knew we were really HOME and where Tom wants us to be. It means a
great deal as we struggle with our heartbreaking loss. Your love and support
shone through during that day a few weeks ago and continues to carry on today.
I wish I could have had the ability to thank you all individually and personally-
given the tremendous outpouring of support that was shown, but that would be
impossible. All your support is allowing me the ability to take each day as it
comes, with our two sons, giving and gaining strength through each other.
Please know that your generosity and thoughtfulness have touched us deeply.
Knowing that we are not alonehelps us to bear our grief and sadness.
Thank you for being there for us.
This was such a tribute to the man who was the light of our lives.
God Bless you all,
The Vadas Family .
Sandie, Tyler, Kyle and Tucker

God, unlike Baal, controlled
the weather and could end
the drought at will!
All of us, at times have
made the desire for wealth,
power, pleasure, fame or the
applause of our peers more
important than God in our
lives. Any thing we put .
before God is an idol. When
Elijah asked the people
"How long will you sit on the


fence" he was looking down
through the centuries and
asking you and me the same
question.
Are you going through a
drought? The Bible has a
wonderful promise, "Seek
first the kingdom of God,
and his righteousness, and
all of these things will be
added unto you."
You can enter the king-


dom of God by receiving
Christ as your Lord and
Savior.

Letters
From page A6

Is nothing sacred?

On Memorial Day, I wit-
nessed one of the most des-
picable 'acts I have ever
seen.
Many people had gath-
ered at the Veteran's Memo-:
rial in Port St. Lucie to par--
ticipate in a service to honor
those men and women who
had laid down their lives in-
service to their country.
While the service was
going on, a small plane flew
over trailing a large advertis-
ing banner.
The Red Baron Banner
plane towing the Benjamin
Franklin Plumbing Co. ban-
ner disrupted the solemn:
service being held to honor
and remember those who
had given their lives so that
this great country could sur-
vive.
The lack of respect shown
by these two companies
made me feel sick to my
stomach.
It also produced a great
rage that almost engulfed
me. I feel nothing but dis-
gust for these two compa-
nies. They will never benefit-
financially from me.
This was not a slight error,.
as this plane circled the cer-
emony three times.
I, and I am sure that most
of the people there, felt
nothing but disgust for
these two companies.

Weather leads to column opportunities


F irst and foremost, I
would like to wish
Hometown News a
very happy fifth anniver-
sary.
It seems-like just yester-
day that the first edition
ran off the presses to the
delight of Martin and St.
Lucie County residents.
. I am proud to have been
a part of this for the past
five years.
Most of the readers
know me as the writer of
the Garden Nook, but
prior to that I did a weath-
er column known as Joe's
DiscoWeather Central
Time Capsule. (Say that
three times fast!)
Again, it seems like just
yesterday when I wrote my
first column for the paper.
Let me rewind just a bit.
As a kid, I always had an
intense interest in the
weather.
I was never satisfied to
watch the weather report
and see what it was going
to do. I wanted to know
why it was going to rain or
snow.
I started to read and


JOE ZELENAK
Garden Nook
study about weather
systems, fronts and above
all, hurricanes.
To make the story a little
shorter, actually a lot
shorter, all this led me to
the creation of Joe's Disco
Weather Central (now
known as www.home-,
townweather.net) in 1999.
Although the Web site
was a great outlet, I
wanted to share my
interest even further.
My opportunity came
when Carol, my wife, was
just starting to work for
Hometown News. She
suggested that I do weath-


er for the, paper.
I thought about it and
eventually decided to take
the plunge.
Carol set up an appoint-
ment with Tammy Raits,
the vice president/manag-
ing editor of Hometown
News.
When we had our first
meeting, we brainstormed
and came up with the idea
of talking about past
weather events along with
current forecasts.
The main idea was to
have the weather done
from a local standpoint.
I must add that Tammy
was my inspiration. It was
her inspiration that made
the column a success.
In 2005, I took on a new
* challenge: A gardening
column.
Since I had 27 years of
horticulture experience
under my belt, it was an
exciting transition.
I also want to thank
Steve Erlanger, publisher;
for allowing me the
opportunity to express
myself through the power
of media.
Because of the opportu-


nities that Steve and
Tammy gave me, I am
doing something I always
dreamed about.
Happy anniversary!

experience in gardening

Trauma
From page A7


As our community
deliberates as to whether
to approve the trauma
care referendum on June
26th, it is critical to
weigh what the benefits
of having this higher
level of care and service
means to all of us:
*Live-saving trauma
care available here at
home.
*Critical care medical
specialists available 24/7
for all St. Lucie County


residents.
*A focus on prevention
for our most at-risk
populations our chil-
dren and seniors.
Anyone who has
experienced a traumatic
injury knows that the
trauma fee, which aver-
ages $56 per year for
most county homeown-
ers, is one of the best
investments we'll make.
For those who haven't,
consider it insurance if


someone you love falls
victim to a life threaten-
ing injury.

Tom Ellison, R.N., has
joined the staff at Lawn-
wood Regional Medical
Center & Heart Institute
as Nurse Director of
Trauma Services as part
of the hospital's prepara-
tion for launching Trau-
ma Services by October 1,
2007, if the June 26
referendum is approved.

SWhat should I do in the event of a dental O
emergency? O


A. A dental emergency can occur quite often in children,
and how it is handled can have an impact on the prognosis
of the tooth.
Toothache: Clean the area of the affected tooth
thoroughly. Rinse the mouth vigorously with warm water
or use dental floss to dislodge impacted food or debris. If
the pain still exists, contact your child's dentist. DO NOT
place aspirin on the gum or on the aching tooth. If the face
is swollen apply cold compresses and contact your dentist
immediately. '
Cut or Bitten Tongue, Lip or Cheek: Apply ice to
bruised areas. If there is bleeding, apply firm but .gentle
pressure with gauze or cloth. If bleeding does not stop after
15 minutes or it cannot be controlled by simple pressure,
take the child to the hospital emergency room.
Knocked Out Permanent Tooth: Find the tooth. Handle
the tooth by the crown, not the root portion. You may rinse
the tooth but DO NOT clean or handle the tooth
unnecessarily. Inspect the tooth for fractures. If it is sound,
try to reinsert it in the socket. Have the patient hold the
tooth in place by biting on gauze. If you cannot reinsert the
tooth, transport the tooth in a cup containing Hank's
Balanced. Salt Solution, the patient's saliva or milk. The
patient must see a dentist IMMEDIATELY! Time is a
critical factor in saving the tooth.
AtArdalan Pediatric Dentistry we strive to provide our patients
with a state of the art dental facility. We aim to provide treatment in a
fun and relaxing environment for both the patient and the parent. To
that extent, we offer several amenities not provided at other offices
including a video arcade, movies throughout the office, Wi-Fi.internet
access, a modern sterilization area, digital radiography, and a
reception area designed to be comfortable for both parent and child.
We strive to make each and every visit to our office a fun one!

SHELLEY KOPPEL
Treasure Coast Scene

Theater

ponders,

modern

musicals
WTe have some
wonderful
theatrical
companies performing
many of the classics of
the musical theater, and
they're classic for a good
reason. They stand up
well, even 50-60 years
after they were written.
This year, we've seen
wonderful productions'
of "The Pajama Game" at
StarStuck, "The Music
Man" at Shiloh, "Sugar"
at the Pineapple Play-
house and even the
world premier of Trea-
sure Coast native John
Mercurio's musical, "The
River Haven Book Club,"
which was also a Shiloh
production.
People have suggested
that the time may be
righftb add a show by
Stephen Sondheim,
whose more sophisticat-
ed lyrics and themes
don't always send you
out of the theater laugh-
ing and humming.
Unfortunately, it's
expensive to stage a
musical, and producers
are understandably
nervous about mounting
a show that plays to
empty seats.
We'd like to know if
you feel that Treasure
Coast audiences will.
support shows by
Stephen Sondheim and
perhaps other, newer
composers. Send your
comments to shel-
ley55@bellsouth.net;
we'll pass them along to
some of the-local theatri-
cal companies.


Finding comedy in absurdity


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Brian Regan finds
humor in the most ordi-
nary things. The -Miami
native and Letterman
favorite finds humor in
trying not to fail an eye
exam, understanding an
airline arrival board, driv-
ing and talking on a cell
phone and eating Pop-
Tarts.
If you're not familiar
with his brand of physical
comedy, you can catch
him at the Sunrise The-
atre on June 21, when his
Comedy Central Live
Tour rolls into town.
In a telephone inter-
view, he spoke about
comedy and what's really
important to him.
He realized that life was
absurd at a young age.
"When I was a kid,
before I considered being
a comedian, I looked
around and noticed
things that were odd and
interesting," he says. "I
come from a family of
eight children and we're
all pretty funny. You had
a built-in audience and it
was thrill to make my dad
or mom laugh.
"Somnetimes I wonder if
the neighbors thought we
were a household of
maniacs. They were
probably tempted to call


the authorities about
those Regans who've
been eating turkey and
laughing for an hour."
Mr. Regan went to Hei-
delberg College in Tiffin,
Ohio, which was a world
apart from Miami.
"It was culture shock
but I loved it," he says.
"I liked going to a com-
pletely different world
and trying something
new in every sense. The
climate was very differ-
ent. I had T-shirts and
one winter coat that went
below my knees and had


fur around the face. I
looked like I was working
on the Alaska pipeline. I
used to get ridiculed in a
fun way: It must be below
50 degrees because Brian
has his winter jacket on.'"
In college he discov-
ered theater and knew he
wanted to be a comedian.
He was set to try his luck
in New York or Los Ange-
les after graduation, but a
comedy club opened in
Fort Lauderdale and he
was able to come back
home and try his luck at.
stand-up.


Comedian Brian Regan
brings his 'Comedy
Central Live' tour to the
Sunrise Theatre on June
21.

Jerry Metellus
Mr. Regan's comedy is
known for being very
physical and very clean.
He knows that clean
comedy is unusual these
days.
"I do it because that's
how I write," he says.
"What's intriguing is that
people assume older
folks would like clean
comedy, and they do. But
I get so many young, col-
lege age kids who com-
ment that they love that
it's clean. Clean comedy

The summer is a won-
derful time for the family
to visit the Elliott Museum
in Stuart. There are special
art and archaeology camps
for kids, but even if you
just want a great place to
spend an afternoon, the
Elliott is a family-friendly
spot.
The museum was built
in 1960 by Harmon Elliott,
a winter resident, to honor


his father Sterling, a suc-
cessful inventor who held
numerous patents on
everything from bicycles to
office equipment. A bicy-
cle ,builder in Massachu-
setts, Mr. Elliott used his
engineering skills to invent
a steering mechanism
used in automobiles. Mr.
Elliott's reputation was
such that Thomas Edison
reportedly asked to meet
him "to shake the hand of a
genius."

A collection of Seminole
artifacts, spotlighting
some of Martin County's
first settlers, will be in
place until mid-July, when
it is leaving for Tallahassee
and the Museum of Florida
History.
The Seminoles first came
to Spanish colonial Florida
in the early 1700s to escape
British oppression in the
Carolinas. After the Semi-
nole Wars in the 1830s,
they were displaced to
reservations; many trav-
eled the St. Lucie and Indi-
an rivers to trade with set-
tlers in the 1900s.
The Elliott also houses
the largest collection of
signed Baseball Hall of
Fame memorabilia outside
of Cooperstown. Nearly
,every player in the hall of
Fame is represented, and
the letters, signed bats and
photos tell the story of
baseball's history, includ-
ing sections on the Negro
.,Leagues and the All-Amer-
ican Girls Professional
Baseball League, featured
in the movie, "A League of
Their Own."
The Elliott has several
dollhouses, and they -will
be a part of a new exhibit

Editor's confidence, understanding .
"I I. .. urti-liI,,lls 1 1uIs


opened up many opportumnes


T Then my husband,
Roy and I moved
V to Florida in
2002, I became a volun-
teer with the American
Cancer Society in Stuart.
My responsibility was to
*do publicity for events
such as "Making Strides
against Breast Cancer"
and "Relay for Life."
I knew very little about
publicity, but a lot about
being a pest, so I bom-:
barded Tammy Raits, vice
president and managing
editor of Hometown News,
_with press releases.
Eventually, she began to
recognize my name.
When a staff member
was diagnosed with
breast cancer, Tammy and
I began talking because
she knew I was a survivor
and she wanted to under-
stand what the reporter
was going through.
She remembers that I
kept badgering her about
doing freelance reporting
Of course, I remember it
differently. My recollec-
tion is that she called me
and asked me if I'd like to
,do some writing.
Since she's the boss,
we'll go with her story.
My first assignment was
about three companies
who had made Florida
'Trend magazine's list of
rsomething-or-other.
It was just before the
July 4 weekend in 2003
-and I knew it would be
hard to reach executives
for quotes.
I figured that would be
my first and last assign-
ment.
SSomehow I got it in on
,time and I began doing
steady freelance reporting
for the paper.
Tammy knew that I
couldn't work full-time
and she was willing to
accommodate a part-time
schedule.
In January 2004, I had
part of my lung removed
and had to stop working.
Later, I worked for some
other publications, but I'd
always had a dream about
having a column that,
helped people under-
stand complex medical
information.
In summer 2005,
Tammy and I ran into
each other again and I
mentioned the column.
The timing was right,
and in August 2005, I
started "Alive and Well."
Writing the column has
been a gift to me.
I am able to choose,
topics that I'm interested
in and that I think will
interest the readers.
No one interferes or
tells me what to write
about.


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well
I've been able to share
personal experiences as
they relate to health and
even write from the heart
about my struggle With
breast cancer and Roy's
battle with Alzheimer's
disease.
Readers have told me
how much these personal
stories have meant to
them and I am truly
grateful'to have the
opportunity to share
them with you.
Last year, Tammy took
another chance on me.
I wanted to do some
more work and she was
looking for an entertain-
ment writer.
On paper, I didn't look
like the ideal candidate,
except for being curious
about everything and
loving the theater.
I honestly didn't know if
I was up to the job. She
thought I was and I
decided to trust her yet
again.
Her instincts about


such things are a lot
better than mine, and she
has always had a confi-
dence in me that far
exceed my own.
It has made me try very
hard, because I have
never wanted to let her
down.
Again, I have been given
the opportunity to create
something new.
,The entertainment
section has grown in the
last year and I have had
the wonderful experience
of interviewing some of
the marvelous people
who have come to the
Treasure Coast.
I got to speak to actor
Joel Grey who was in
"Cabaret," the very first
Broadway show I saw,
Andrea Mitchell, whose
reporting I've admired for
years, author Mary
Higgins Clark, who spoke
to me about the creative
process and singer
Denyce Graves, one of
opera's shining stars.
I've met people in
community theater who
are doing wonderful
things, and had the
opportunity to see some
terrific performances.
I even began taking
singing lessons, fulfilling
another dream, because I
finally had the confi-
dence to do it.
Hometown News has
enriched the community
in many ways, but it has
given me opportunities

F ive years. Has it really
been that long? I guess
it has..
It's hard to believe, but
looking at my calendar, sure
enough, five long years have
gone by since I got that
fateful phone call telling me
Steve Erlanger was back in
town with plans to launch
another newspaper and
would I be interested in
writing for him again?
It didn't take me long to
think about it; of course I
would.
Especially when I found
out he was putting together
his original team of Tammy
Raits, Phil Galdys and
others.
I knew from past experi-
ence that this venture was
sure to be a success and
happily signed on to the

And what a successful ride
it's been.
A lot has changed since

available in just the Treasure
Coast to weekly publication
from Palm Beach County all
the way up to the Space
Coast andVolusia County.
Talk about expansion.
Not much in computers
has changed though.
Keeping systems virus
and spyware free is still the
No. 1 thing I get asked
about. People still have a
hard time remembering to
backup their data, until
disaster happens, that is.
Hard drive (permanent
storage) devices have
steadily gotten bigger and
computers themselves have
gotten more powerful, but
manufacturers still have a
habit of squandering all that
extra power on new
machines with tons of little
programs that run in the
background right out of the
box.
It doesn't look like that's
ever going to change.
Things have changed for
me though, and in big ways
I went from being
married and doing consult-
ing work in the evenings
and on weekends to being a
single dad and not having
time for any consulting
work at all.
I still spend my days in
front of a keyboard, but my
days of running around
town fixing computer
problems are long gone.
I can't say that I miss it.
What will the next five
years bring?
Well, one can only guess.
I'm sure this newspaper will
continue to grow and be
successful and I'm sure
computers will keep getting
more powerful.
I'm also pretty sure that
manufacturers will still
continue the bad habit of
loading machines up with a
ton of useless junk and I'm
pretty sure people will still
need help dealing with it.
Some things never
change.
There are a few things
coming around the comer
that I will be watching over
the next few years.
Microsoft's new operating
system, Vista, is one to
watch. It will be interesting
to see how that stabilizes
after it's been out for a year
or two.
Speaking of operating
systems, the big rumor right
now is that Dell will soon
begin to offer machines
running Linux (Ubuntu) for
those folks brave enough to
give it a try.
Microsoft has just
announced its new Surface
computer, too.
This remarkable gizmo
promises to change the way
people compute and, going
by what I know about "multi
touch" computers, it
probablywill.
We will have to wait a bit,
as the first Surface machines
are only going to be avail-
able to businesses.
No telling how long it will
be before these new high-
tech coffee tables become
available to the rest of us.
Another thing I'll be
watching over the next few
years is storage.
The size of your typical
hard drive continues to
grow by leaps and bounds.
I think when Hometown
News first launched five
years ago, hard drives
averaged around 20 giga-
bytes in size.
Now it's not uncommon
to see machines coming off
the shelf with hard drives 10
times that, and there's news
of terabyte drives (1,000
gigabytes) right around the
corner.
Well, it sure has been fun.
Steve, Tammy, thank you
very much for inviting me .
along for the ride, I hope the
next five years are as
successful as the first.
With such great leaders at
the helm I'm sure they will

Living a life of honor, means having to say 'no' at times


W e are all children
of the universe.
We are heirs to
creating a life filled with
love, peace, health, abun-
dance, faith pnd happi-
ness. However, we can
have a lot of money, fine
cars, homes and prestige
and still be unhappy. Why?
Because the basic
spiritual elements are
missing that underlie
earthly success.
It all starts with having a
vision, a dream and a goal
and then making wise
choices as we walk the
path of life toward our
destination.
Living a noble life begins
when we first learn to say,
"no," to negative behavior
of our own making or from
others in the world.
The first step to living a
spiritual based life is to tell
the truth. If we say, "yes,
yes, yes," when sometimes
we want to say, "no," we
are lying to the universe,
others and ourselves.
It messes us up inside
and eventually creates
resentment because it is
not based on truth.
Making wise choices and
vetoing negative behavior
is the foundation for
respect.
We get no true respect in
the world until we learn to
say no when needed.
People hearing it have to
respect your decision
whether they like it or not

The program is used to
enhance presentations at

The planetarium pres-

when you stick with it and
not weaken.
There are only two
responses that others give
when we say no.
The one hearing it says
something like, "Oh no,
you're not going to do it
your way. You are going to
do it my way first, whatev-
er it is." This person is
using you and doesn't
respect your decision. This
is not a real friend.
The other answer we
hear is, "Gee, I didn't mean
to harm you, you are my
friend. Will you forgive me
for my behavior?" This is a
friend talking. This situa-
tion can usually be worked
out and you remain
friends.
Respect is the founda-
tion for love.
How can we truly love if

we first don't respect
someone?
Love then becomes

Honor then becomes

is honoring our spirit
royalty.


Everyone on earth has
been given this heritage at
birth. Isn't this the way you
truly want to live? You can
do it. It has little to do with
earthly privilege, educa-
tion, experience, money or
possessions. It has every-
thing to do with wanting to
,\ live a healthy, abundant
and happy life, free at last
to live a quality life rather
than settle for and live a
painful, burned out
existence.
When we make wise
choicesand have respect,
love, honor and dignity in
the life, true magic begins to
happen. With these
the spiritual foundation
stones set, the universe
y begins to bring positive
This earthly increase our way.
ual We have now become a
powerful magnetic force.


The supreme law is "like
attracts like."
We become what we
hold inside our heart and
soul.
It's really that simple.
Once it is working for
you, others will want to
know how you do all these
noble things. You are now
the keeper of the light and
truth. Share it freely. This is
a beautiful life well lived.
The sweetest news is the
best is yet to come.

BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
At 8:13 p.m. on June 9, an
estimated 200 fans scantily
covered the bleachers at
Lawnwood Stadium in Fort
Pierce, prepared to cheer on
the new Treasure Coast
Galleons soccer team.
Galleons owner Andre
Ruette grabbed the stadium
microphone ready to belt
out the team's opening line-
up, but as most opening
nights go, there were still
some small glitches waiting
to be worked out.
Instead of the lineup, the
blaring sound of feedback
echoed throughout the sta-
dium.
"If that is the biggest thing
that goes wrong tonight, I
think we'll be alright," Ruette
said with a chuckle.
It was the Galleons long
awaited home debut. Their


previous home opener was
scheduled for May 19, but
canceled due to a schedul-
ing conflict at the stadium.
A small, but enthusiastic
crowd, watched as Treasure
Coast lost a nail-biter, 2-1, to
the Space Coast Strikers.
It was the Galleons first
loss of the season.
They beat Okeechobee
S.C., 4-2, on May26 and Port
St. Lucie Hurricanes, 4-0,
June 2, but were unable to
establish an offe nsive pres-
ence
Treasure Coast started out
fast, trying to establish an
offensive presence right
away. In the 18th minute
Galleons captain and former
Major League Soccer all-star
"Sneaky" Pete Marino
missed a chance to take an
early lead when his shot
slipped by the left goal post.
Eight minutes later, another
Marino shot sailed wide of


the right goal post.
The striker would finally
put a goal in the back of the
net in the 88th minute on a
penalty kick, but by then his
team was already down by
two.
"In the first game the first
goal is always critical," said
Galleons fullback Matt
Walby. "Old Sneaky Pete
(Marino) missed some goals
that he puts away in practice
with his eyes closed, but
that's the way it goes some-
times."
With the excitement of
the team's home opener, the
club's first loss was second-
ary to players and coaches.
"I was impressed with the
stadium. It's real nice, and
great for what we're looking
to do," said Marino, who
leads the league with five
goals after three games. 'A
little more fans would be
good. But it's a great atmos-
phere. I'm a little upset that
we lost, but I'm happy that
we have a good team in the
league."
Despite the loss, Treasure
Coast (2-1) remains on top
of the standings and will
play undefeated Palmeiras
S.C. (2-0) in Palm City on
June 16.
The Galleons will host
their next home game on
June 23 against Okechobee
S.C.

Why isn't volleyball more popular on Treasure Coast?


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
During the school year,
Rick Ferrante sits in his
office inside the media
center at Port St. Lucie
High School surrounded
by pictures of his old vol-
leyball teams and medals
they have won.
Four years ago Ferrante
stepped down from his 14-
year tenure as the Jaguars
head girl's volleyball
coach, but his passion for
the game never retired.
Occasionally a student
will pop into his office and
ask him about the sport
and if he could help them
get a club team organized.
Curiously enough, more
times than not it's a boy
asking, not a girl said Fer-
rante. And for over a


I


[^B~~sSiiL
I^HariBBipainWg
| depenjdctoent


decade he has had the
same answer: They can try,
but they won't get far.
"Kids'come up to me all
the time and ask, me why
there isn't a boy's volleyball
team," said Ferrante. "I say,
'write a letter (to the school
board)' and they never do."
Boy's volleyball became
a recognized sport in Flori-
da in 2003 and has its own
state championship. Oper-
ating during the spring
season, the sport doesn't
conflict with'bigger boy's
sports like football, soccer,
or basketball.
Currently 119 schools in
Florida provide boy's vol-
leyball on a varsity level,
with more schools looking
to be added as the sport
grows. In fact, south Flori-
da is. one of the biggest
areas for volleyball, be it


boys' or girls'. But while
counties north of Indian
River (Brevard, Orange and
Osceola) and south of Mar-
tin (Palm Beach, Broward
and Dade) have flourishing
boy's volleyball programs,
the Treasure Coast doesn't.
"Some people in the area
have the mentality that
football is for boy's volley-
ball is for girl's," said Fer-
rante. "It's hard to break
through that."
Jay Stewart, who serves
as the athletic director for
Fort Pierce Central as well
St. Lucie County, says he
hears coaches ask all the
time, but doesn't see the
same reaction from stu-
dents.
A 2006 survey at Fort
Pierce Central showed lit-
tle to no interest in boys'
volleyball. And with the

financial obligations that
come with a new sports
team, on top of staying in
compliance with Title IX,
Stewart doesn't see boys'
volleyball coming to the
county anytime soon.
"We have made an effort
for improving opportuni-
ties for girls," said Stewart.
"We're not in a position of
adding boys' volleyball at
this time."
But with cheerleading on
the cusp of becoming a
recognized sport by the
Florida High School, Ath.-
letic Association, and girl's
weightlifting already there,
local boys' volleyball pro-
ponents see an opportuni-
ty.
With girls-only sports
like cheerleading ready to
take off, it could open a
door for another boys'

"It would be a travesty to walk away without
boys' volleyball here.'

sport.
"It's an ongoing discus-
sion for a number of
years," said Martin County
head coach Marty Beilicki.
"This is a prime area for
boys' volleyball."
Bielicki, who has
coached the Martin Coun-
ty girls' team since 1988,
bringing the school a state
championship in 1994,
said he always wanted to
coach boy's volleyball as
well. But, with the current
opposition, he doesn't
know if he will ever get the
chance.
"There is an interest out
here definitely," said
Bielicki. "It's funny that the
winningest coach in public
school history here isn't
able to coach boys. It
would be a travesty to walk
away without boys' volley-
ball here. It's definitely one
of the low points of my
career not to have boys'
volleyball here. We always
put up the fight."

Finding a place
to play
On Thursday nights at
Minskey Gym in Port St.
Lucie, there is a group of
male St. Lucie county high
school, students who are
now preparing for an inter-
national tournament in
the Dominican Republic.
And although their experi-
ence is limited, the boys
still want to show they can
play.
"A lot of people think it's
a girls sport and all that


kind of stuff," said Treasure
Coast High School student
Tim Rouch Jr. "We're just
trying to get on the court
and teach people the sport
and do the best we can."
Rouch, along with his
other teammates would
love to see boy's volleyball
in high schools, can't
understand why people
look at it as a less mascu-
line sport.
"I play football so if I can
come out and play volley-
ball then it's not just for
girls," said Corey Denkers,
a 2007 graduate of Port St.
Lucie. "For a football guy to
come out and play volley-
ball it shows them that it's
not just a girls' sport."
But convincing people to
bring the sport here might
not be as simple as getting
a team together and set-,
ting up a net.
Starting a new sport cost
money. And even with:
claims that girls' coaches
would coach boys' teams,
for free to start and they
would use the girl's equip-
ment, area administrators:
remain leery.
"It's a larger expense.
They don't understand,"
said Hank Salzer, a Martin
County assistant superin-
tendent. "They say they
will buy them uniforms,
and that's nice, but that's'
just a drop in the bucket.
There are a lot of issues
that go into it."
Salzer also serves as the
county's athletic director-
and says that the schools,

already have enough prob-
lems with underpaid facul-
ty and staff, and making
sure they are properly paid
is higher on the county's
agenda then adding a new
sport.
"Every penny we spend
on something else, is
money we take from some-
one else," he said.
Salzer also doesn't see
the value in adding a sport
that may or may not pro-
vide students with scholar-
ship opportunities. .
"I hear it every time. But
in reality you look at the
numbers it's very, very,
very, very small (amount of
scholarships given out),"
said Salzer. "We can't be all
things to every body. They
can't come to the public
education and say just do
it because they- want it.


Our mission is education.
The recreation depart-
ment's is recreation."

The next step
The steps that must be
taken to start a varsity pro-
gram are simple, but time
consuming. First, students
would have to talk with
their school athletic direc-
tor, who would then go to
the principal with a
request. The principal
would then draft a letter of
recommendation to the
county athletic director
who would present it to the
county superintendent. At
that point the proposal is in
the had of administrators
who make the decision if
the proposal is something
to present to the school
board who would vote on


making a request to the
Florida High School Athlet-
ic Association.
So even if local players
show interest, the chain of
command to get a sport
approved is long and could
present many roadblocks
along the way.
"We've had boys go to
assistant superintendent's
and get shot down," said
Beilicki. "Why can Palm
Beach County get 20
schools, and we can't get
three? Politics are very
strong in this county."
Unless more students
take action to bring boy's
volleyball to: the Treasure
Coast, this part of the story
isn't going to change any-
time soon. For local volley-
ball enthusiasts that fact has
become reality, while their
-sport remains a dream.

Great atmosphere, courses found at Jonathan's Landing


Up north, when you

At Jonathan's Landing

board of directors and Dan
Devaney, a senior mem-
ber.
The drive from the
center of town to Old Trail
takes about 20 to 30
minutes.
While some may dislike
such a ride to get to the
golf course, I would
welcome it. The ride gives
you time to relax and
forget about the day. You're
just far enough from the
office that it feels like
another world.
The Old Trail facility
features a pair of courses.
The first is the Fazio
course built in 1986. The
second was designed by
Arthur Hills and complet-
ed in 1991. The two are as
distinctly different as their
designers.
The Fazio course is
longer, with rolling terrain
and diabolical greens
routed among towering
pines and shimmering
lakes.
With five sets of tees, the
course plays as long as

The Old Trail facility is
pure golf.
Neither roads nor
residential development
are within the course. This
is a feature offered by few,
if any, South Florida
courses.
In town, Jonathans'
Landing features a marina,
tennis courts and the
Village course, another
Tom Fazio design. With
plenty of sports activities
and social programs, the
club caters to a member-
ship with an active
lifestyle.
The Village course
designed by George Fazio
in 1978 and tweaked by his
son, Tom, in 2000, plays to
6,616 yards from the tips.
The course offers
exceptionally sculpted
fairways and greens all
within the community.
The signature hole at the
Village is the par-5 17th.
After your second shot on
this dogleg left hole, you
cross the Intracoastal
Waterway via a specially
designed ferry that holds
two golf carts.
Earlier this year, the
members of the private
equity member-owned
club voted to begin a $12
million renovation to both
clubhouses and construc-
tion of a new sports and
fitness center.
When the renovations
are complete in 2009,
members will find new
locker rooms, expanded
dining rooms, new golf
and tennis pro shops, new
lounges and an outdoor
dining terrace.
The future is shaping up
nicely at Jonathan's
Landing. The improve-
ments will give the place
an updated, yet open and
airy feel, all while keeping
the comforting look of old
Florida.

COMMUNITY SPOTUGHT


Soldiers band together to


help WWII veteran in need


Port St. Lucie's
Cadets for Vets
and others step
up to assist 94-
year-old woman

BY RITA HART
Staffwriter
HOBE SOUND Rena
Tulli's property contains a
huge gardenia btish filled
with blooms. It is a sign of
hope amid complete disre-
pair.
When Hurricane Frances
hit the Treasure Coast in
2004, Mrs. Tulli, a 94-year
old Hobe Sound woman,
had an insurance company
that reimbursed her for the
storm's damages.
However, when Hurri-
cane Jeanne arrived three
weeks later, the storm took
her roof, her trees and
much more in its path.
Mrs. Tulli said the insur-
ance company told her this
time they had paid her once
and would not do so again.
Mrs. Tulli is aWorld War II
veteran who drove trucks
for the U.S. Army during
World War II and worked in
construction after the War.
Mrs. Tulli, who still drives
daily to visit her sisters, has
never had a vehicle acci-
dent.
"I drive the Army way. I
give all the other drivers
space," said Mrs. Tulli.
Mrs. Tulli tried to fix some
of the damage herself. How-
ever, one of her neighbors


eventually tired of looking
at the damaged property
and called Martin County
Code Enforcement.
That office, in turn, con-
tacted Martin County Com-
missioner Lee Weberman,
who called Tony Reese, Vet-
erans Service Officer for the
Veterans Council of Martin
County.
"My neighbor did me a
favor," said Mrs. Tulli. "God
sent Tony to me. He is my
guardian angel."
What happened after Mr.
Reese met with Mrs. Tulli, a
bright and lively woman,
was a domino effect of
assistance that poured in
from many places.
"I didn't do any more than
any other service officer
would do," said Mr. Reese,
who is now assisting Mrs.
Tulli in getting veteran ben-
efits.
"When you meet her, you
get even more drawn in. It's
hard not to want to help,"
said Mr. Reese, a 21-year
Navy veteran.
Mr. Reese contacted Col.
Alan Weierman of the Victo-
ry Forge Military Academy
in Port St. Lucie and Col.
Michael Roberts of Special
Forces Restoration and
Construction.
Early on Saturday, June 9,
a busload of cadets from
Port St. Lucie's Victory Forge
Military Academy's Cadets
for Vets organization pulled
up to Mrs. Tulli's property to
begin rebuilding what they
could.
By noon, they had already
built new stairs leading to


Mrs. Tulli's back porch and
were starting to put up
screening. The porch is
where Mrs. Tulli, who has
no air conditioning, sleeps
when it is too hot in the
house.
The property consists of
two buildings, a main home
and a guest house, that
through the years housed
Mrs. Tulli, her four brothers
and her two sisters. Her
brothers, WWII veterans
themselves, are gone now,
but her sisters live else-
where in Hobe Sound.
The guest house is where
Mrs. Tulli now stays
because the main house is
uninhabitable.
Despite the fact she
attempted her own repairs,
"They didn't like the way I
fixed the roof," said. Mrs.
Tulli, with a laugh.
A Florida resident for 60
years, Mrs. Tulli had one
child, Louis, who was draft-
ed into the Vietnam War
and died as a result of the
conflict.
Once Mr. Reese assessed
Mrs. Tulli's situation, it was
clear she needed much
help.
She suffers from shingles
and has amassed $25,000 in
medical bills. Mr. Reese is
attempting to get her insur-
ance through the Veteran's
Council, which will save her
about $300 per month in
premiums. She plans on
using that money to start
paying off her unreim-
bursed expenses.
Mrs. Tulli is hard of hear-
ing, and is looking forward

they are seeking donations for supplies to help rebuild Mrs.

"It's the number one
thing I want," she said.
The interior of her prop-
erty needs new kitchen
cabinets, she has no shut-
ters for her windows and
tree stumps and weeds
must be pulled. The house
has rotting fascia and
needs new windows, siding

others who were diligently
working under the hot sun
on Mrs. Tulli's home.
The cadets and others
will return on Saturday, July
14 to complete their reno-
vations.
In the interim, there is
much more needed in
terms of materials and sup-
plies to keep Mrs. Tulli safe
for the next hurricane.
Organizers are asking for
donations from the public,
so Mrs. Tulli can live in her
home safely for her
remaining years.

tags, because she doesn't

It has been difficult for
her to accept all the help
she's been given in a short
time.
But as she walked among
the young men in military
fatigues who were on lad-
ders, atop her roof and fix-
ing her porch, she smiled
and said, "They are my

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers. -

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".
t


t Fellow Florida Car Dealers, if you don'
know me, I should tell you that I don't profess
to be some "holier than thou" car dealer whc
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 expect
customers.


Virtually every car dealer ofeduc4
In Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a sophistit
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500 much hig
to nearly $1,000. This extra
charge is programmed into
your computer. It has been made illegal in
many states including California, but is still
legal in Florida. The reason you charge this
fee is simply to increase the price of the car
and your profit in such a manner that it is not
noticed by your customers. This is just plain
wrong. I used to charge a dealer fee ($495)
and when I stopped charging it a few years
ago it was scary. But I did it because I could
no longer, in good conscience, mislead my
customers. Just because everybody else
was doing the same thing, did not make it
correct,

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 pet car, but I was selling a lot
more cars. I was and am selling cars to many
of your former customers. My bottom line
has improved, not because I eliminated the
dealer fee, but because I was
stOmers' able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
tions, level or used car. You can do the
same.
nation and Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
cation are I think of myself as .the new
"sheriff' that has come to
her today." "clean up South Florida". In
fact, I am well aware that this
letter is, to some extent, self-
serving, Many people will read this letter and
learn why they should buy a car from me,
and not you. And, I am also aware that most
dealers who read this will either get angry and
ignore it or not have the courage to follow my
lead. But maybe you will be the exception. If
you have any interest in following my lead,
call me anytime. I don't have a secretary and
I don't screen any of my phone calls. I would
love to chat with you about this.
