Oxycodone
abuse
increasing
BY MATT DONEGAN
Staff writer
The addictive opioid
painkiller oxycodone
caused more than twice
the number of deaths on
the Treasure Coast in
2006 than in 2005, a new
report shows.
There were 43 deaths
involving oxycodone in
2006 in District 19,
which is comprised of
St. Lucie, Indian River,
Martin and Okeechobee
counties. The narcotic
was ruled as the direct
cause of death in 23 of
those cases, according
to "Drugs Identified in
Deceased Persons by
Florida Medical Exam-
iners," a study released
June 11.
By comparison, oxy-
codone was detected in
28 deceased users in
2005. In 10 of those

tion Martin Memorial has
submitted to the state.
"This is a big win for the
people of St. Lucie West,"
said Richmond Harman,
president and chief execu-
tive officer of Martin
Memorial Health Systems.
Martin Memorial
applied earlier this year to
construct an 80-bed hos-
pital on 20 acres in Tradi-
tion. The hospital will
include an emergency
room and an obstetrics
department.
"I'm really excited
because I know we need
another hospital out


west," Port St. Lucie Mayor
Patricia Christensen said.
"Our need will be even
greater when it finally
opens."
The state has denied
Martin Memorial's seven
previous applications, cit-
ing a lack of need for a
third hospital in St. Lucie
County. Mr. Harman said
the last application had
changes that supported a
need for the hospital.
"The data was from a
year later (than the last
application), so it reflected
the growth that's occurred
and that is a real boost,"
Mr. Harman said. "As time

ed based on a growing

Paintball

targeting

the city

BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE A
Fort Pierce businessman
wants to expand to Port
St. Lucie, providing what
he claims are much-
needed activities for
young adults'.
Vince Cloe, owner of
Invincibles Paintball in
Fort Pierce, is looking to
create a family recreation
center in the city. He
envisions a skate, and
BMX riding area, along
with a paintball facility.
"I think Port St. Lucie
needs something like
this," Mr. Cloe said. "My
park will be a destina-
tion."
Right now Mr. Cloe is
in negotiations with Port
St. Lucie over leasing
land to build his facility.
Mr. Cloe said he wants to
lease park land from the
city, build the park and
then several years down
the road, he wants to
turn it over to the city.
"I think the idea of
leasing a parcel of land is
certainly worth taking a
look at for this purpose,"
said Chuck Proulx, direc-
tor of the Port St. Lucie

They reach out
to state
legislators to
work together
on tax reform
BY MATT DONEGAN
Staff writer
With local budget cuts
looming as state legisla-
tors agreed on a slate of
property tax reforms dur-
ing special session last
week, county employees
came up with a unique
way of sending a message
to selected representa-
tives.
St. Lucie County
employees wrote individ-
ual messages on about
600 red, garden-variety
bricks, each of which was
mailed to a legislator of


their choice in Tallahassee
the next day.
The bricks symbolized
the bridge that needed to
be built between the state
and local governments.
Plus it's also harder to
ignore a few hundred
bricks than it is a stack of
letters, said Chris Craft,
chairman of the St. Lucie
Board of County Commis-
sioners.
The tax reform package,
which is awaiting Gov.
Charlie Crist's signature,
consists of two parts. The
first is an immediate
statutory reduction of tax
rates, while the second
must be approved by vot-
ers and is designed to
replace Florida's constitu-
tional Save Our Homes tax
cap.
According to Senate
documents, property tax


reductions will vary from
community to communi-
ty based on a formula
combining area growth,
with the Consumer Price
Index or inflation rate.
With most of the
reforms now agreed upon,
,it remains to be seen if
state lawmakers and
county officials have
forged a new understand-
ing.
"We're asking our state
to work with us, to help
develop meaningful tax
reform," he said. "We
demand tax reform, but
not at the expense of the
services or the safety that
the state of Florida
demand of the locally
elected officials or the
people who carry out
those services."

United Way gives to community agencies


BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer

FORT PIERCE A num-
ber of agencies in St.
Lucie County can now


proceed with programs,
thanks to funding from
the United Way.
The agency announced
last week its allocations of
more than $1.2 million to


49 programs. The money
came from the United
Way of St. Lucie County's
annual donation cam-
paign, as well as an
endowment from a pri-


DENTAL HEALTH TIPS FOR BOOMERS
Q: As I get older will I start losing teeth?
A: Not if you keep taking care of them. Tooth loss is not an inevitable part of
aging. Keep these facts in mind if you are over 50: The danger of dental decay is
not the sole province of youth. Continue to brush at least twice a day, and partic-
ularly after meals, and use floss to get between teeth where brushing might not
dislodge food particles and plaque. Keep your dentist informed about any other


health issues you're dealing with. This can affect your dental treatment. l /
If you have full dentures, clean your mouth and dentures thoroughly every day, and continue with
regular visits to your dentist to have both your mouth and dentures checked. Denture alignment
sometimes needs to be adjusted. Maintain a healthy, balanced diet and avoid sweet food and bever-
ages between meals. If you have developed sensitive areas,on your teeth, your dentist may be able
to recommend special toothpaste, in addition to fluoride toothpaste. Finally, visit your dentist as c
many times as is appropriate for the state of your oral health. Talk with your dentist about the spe-
cial concerns for baby boomers.

"It allows us to expand
our caregiver support
program to St. Lucie
County," said Christina
Kaiser, director of devel-
opment for United For
Families. "Our biggest
need has been providing
mentoring and kinship
services to our largest
service area."
United For Families,
which oversees foster care
in St. Lucie, Martin, Indi-
an River and Okeechobee
counties, was approved, to
receive $55,000 from the
United Way of St. Lucie.
Mrs. Kaiser said the
money will provide help

able in other counties on
the Treasure Coast served
by United For Families,
.but a lack of funding pre-
vented it from being
implemented in St. Lucie
County, which has the
largest need.
"It is all about increasing
stability with children,"
Mrs. Kaiser said. "Without
funding, there are more
children in fewer homes,
and kids bounce from
home to home. If kids go
to a relative's home, it pre-
vents them from going
into foster care."
Agencies must apply to
receive United Way fund-
ing. A group of 65 com-
munity members review
the applications and
make allocations based
on what they feel is need-
ed in the community.
"Every year it is an
incredible process," said
Cris Adams, vice presi-
dent of community
impact. "At the United
Way, we believe that the
individuals in the com-
munity donate their
money and they should
be a part- of how that
money is distributed."
Although many agencies
receive funding through
various avenues, money
from the United Way is
vital.
"It is important to all our
agencies," Ms. Adams
said. "For some, it is strict-
ly a financial need, while
for others it is being a
United Way agency that
can use our logo. And for
some, it is being able to
match local funds for
grants."
Included in the alloca-
tions were five Stanich
grants, totaling $55,000.
The grants, which are one-
time grants for projects
impacting children in the


county, were made possi-
ble through a donation
made in an individual's
will.
The agencies receiving
the grants were the Agri-
culture and Labor Pro-
gram, the north Treasure
Coast chapter of the
American Red Cross, the
Boy Scouts, Save Our Chil-
dren and the Treasure
Coast Food Bank.
The Gulfstream Council
of the Boy Scouts, which
services St. Lucie County,
will use their money from
the Stanich grant to focus
on the migrant and under-
privileged communities in
the northern area of the
county, said Kevin O'Shea,
director of field services
for the Gulfstream Council
of the Boy Scouts .
"It will support at-risk
boys who need Boy
Scouts," Mr. O'Shea said.
One program that the
organization is working
on is creating soccer
teams that will incorpo-
rate the lessons of Boy
Scouts.
"They will learn the
value of scouting, while
playing soccer," Mr.
O'Shea said. "(Boy Scouts)
is extremely important.
What we are trying to do
with the at-risk kids is get-
ting them off the streets
and lead them to healthy
and productive lives. We
want them to be good citi-
zens in the community."

The United Way of St.
Lucie County will kick off
its annual donation cam-
paign in October. There
will be a mini donation
drive in August and Sep-
tember

Explorers to become Marines for a week


BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE Teens
with the Port St. Lucie Police
Explorers program will get a
first-hand feel for U.S.
Marine Corp training next
month.
The group is traveling to
Parris Island, S.C. at the end
of July to train at the facility.
They will be treated just like
U.S. Marine recruits from
the moment the bus arrives
at the center, said Officer
Jack White, one of the
Explorer officers.
"We go every two years to
Parris Island for training,"
Officer White said. "It helps
(the kids) grow up, learn
responsibility and gives
them confidence within
themselves."
The Explorers is a pro-


gram within the police
department that gives
teenagers a hands-on look
at police work. They wear
.uniforms, have ranks and
train for drills.
"The Explorers is a proac-
tive program," Officer White
said. "It keeps the kids'
minds occupied and keeps
them busy so they don't get
into trouble."
The group, which is open
to girls and boys ages 14 to
21, train once a week for
competitions across the
country. National competi-
tion is every two years, and
Officer White said they trav-
el to Parris Island in the
years they don't have com-
petition.
"We do it to stay up on our
training," he said.
Once at Parris Island, the
Explorers will learn the
Marine Corp way. They will


be treated like recruits,
learning drills, marching,
hand-to-hand combat and
about various weapons
used, by the military. They
will even be staying in the
barracks the Marine recruits
stay in, Officer White said.
Mandral Gibson, a master
sergeant in the Explorers
program, will be one of 22
Explorers making the trip to
South Carolina. Ms. Gibson,
20, went to Parris Island two
years ago.
"I liked it," Ms. Gibson
said. "I thought it was enter-
taining. As soon as you get
there, they show you what
it's like to be a new recruit."
Ms. Gibson, who has been
an Explorer for six years,
said she is looking forward
to participating again.
"I hope on this trip to be
able to do a lot of stuff I
couldn't do last time," she


said.
Being an Explorer has
helped Ms. Gibson prepare
for a career in law enforce-
ment. She recently graduat-.
ed from Indian River Com-
munity College with an
associate's degree in crimi-
nal justice, and plans to join
the police academy at IRCC.
"(The Explorers) is a good
opportunity to learn more
about law enforcement,"
Ms. Gibson said.
The Port St. Lucie Police
Explorers will be traveling to
Parris Island July 25: Stu-
dents wanting to participate
in the Explorers program
must have at least a C grade
average.
For more information

gram, call Officer Jack White

Police arrest men selling fake jewelry
Three men were arrested by Port St. Lucie Police after
they attempted to sell fake jewelry.
-Reginald E. Barrnon, 41, of Miami, Tommie L. Carr, 44, of'
Umatilla, and Ronnie A. Baker, 32, of Reddick, were arrest-
ed June 15, and each charged with organized scheme to
defraud.
According to the Port St. Lucie Police Department, the
men flagged down an undercover police detective and
asked if he was interested in buying several pieces of jew-
elry. The detective told the men he wanted to call his boss
to see if he wanted in on the deal, police spokesman Offi-
cer RobertVega said.
The detective assumed the jewelry was either stolen or
fake, and began to investigate.
Officer Vega said the men and the detective met at a
construction site in St. Lucie West, where a deal was made
to purchase jewelry. The detective agreed to purchase 12
gold chains, a Rolex watch and a diamond tennis bracelet
for $2,000.
The men selling the jewelry poured muriatic acid on the
jewelry in an attempt to prove the items were real, but a
certified jeweler assisting police said sulfuric acid is need-
ed to verify authenticity, Officer Vega said.
Once a deal was made, officers arrested the three men,
and seized numerous fake pieces of jewelry.
Officer Vega said if the jewelry had been real, it would
have been worth more than $1 million.
The men were taken to the St. Lucie County Jail.
In addition to the fraud charge, Mr. Carr was charged
with possession of a controlled substance without a pre-
scription.

Unemployment up on Treasure Coast
More people were looking for work last month, raising
' the unemployment rate for the Treasure Coast.
The Florida Agency for Workforce Innovation released
its unemployment numbers last week and it showed the
number of people looking for work increased by 1,374
from the same time last year.
St. Lucie County was at 4.4 percent unemployment rate,
up from 3.8 percent during May 2006.
The state unemployment rate for May 2007 was 3.4 per-
cent, up from 3.3 percent last May.

Tighe named to state commission
Major E Patrick Tighe, St. Lucie County's director of
detention, has been named to the 12-member Florida
Corrections Accreditation Commission.
The Commission works to ensure that Florida's jails
meet high professional standards through an accredita-
tion program. The St. Lucie County jail has been accredit-
ed under this program since 2000.
Major Tighe, 51, spent 25 years with the Broward Sher-
iff's Office before becoming a member of the St. Lucie
County Sheriff's Office in December 2002.

RUBIES co
Everyone knows that
rubies are the highest
valued precious red
gem. One reason is that
they have gone hand in
hand with love and pas-.
sion for thousands of
years.
Rubies claim this popu-
larity for many reasons.
They are extremely
durable having a hard-
ness of 9 on the hard-
ness scale (diamond is
a 10). they are also
extremely rare. A superi-
or gem quality blood red
rubie often times fetch
higher prices than dia-
monds.
another interesting thing
about rubies is that they
are the same basic
material as a sapphire.
Many people are not
aware that rubies come
n all the colors of the
rainbow, in fact a sap-
phire is the same com-
position as a ruby, they
are both corundum!
Another thing nice about
ruby is that it is also
makes a fabulous gem-
stone for a man's ring.
It's color is attractive but
ruby's durability is
exceptional. The next
time you .want to add a
little romance in your
life, think ruby.

Lawnwood Trauma Center

A few months ago, I came to the area due to a trauma
my father had experienced at Lawnwood Hospital.
My father was in need of a neurosurgeon. After
three days in the hospital and no improvement with
the trauma he endured, new symptoms began to
appear.
My family asked for a neurosurgeon and we were
told that there was no neurosurgeon on staff to take
his case. We were also told that it would be difficult to
find a neurosurgeon who would accept his case due to
the condition my father was now in.
This was unacceptable to us. My sister and I asked,
"How can you not have a neurosurgeon in a trauma
hospital, and how do we find one"?
The doctor told us that the neurosurgeon with privi-
leges at Lawnwood Hospital was trying to dislodge
himself from the hospital and we would need to find a
neurosurgeon on our own behalf. The doctor told our
family it was a "political issue" between the neurosur-
geon and the hospital.
I couldn't believe what I had just heard. Here my
father is in need of medical care, and we were told to
find our own neurosurgeon.
Is this the type of facility the taxpayers in St. Lucie
County, want to award a trauma center too?
After the above conversation with this doctor, I
asked the nurse for a telephone book. I believe she saw
how upset I was, qnd she asked why I needed one. I
presented the conversation to her about the need for
the neurosurgeon and how we were just told to make
phone calls to neurosurgeons.
The nurse then informed me that the hospital had a
case manager to deal with this issue. We had not been
told previously that a case manager was available.
Imagine yourself at a hospital with a loved one in
need of urgent care, and being told you need to find

your own doctor to accept your loved one's case. Can
you imagine this?
May you never have to experience this horrific posi-
tion, when you are trying to obtain the best medical
care for your loved one.
Lawnwood Hospital, please tell us why your hospi-
tal believes the public should fund "your trauma cen-
ter"?
The main question is, is there a full time neurosur-
geon now on staff?
Will the statement to the next person in crisis be we
cannot handle this case? Will the family have to find
the neurosurgeon on their own?
The family needs to be aware that in a case where
the care is not in place at the hospital, or any hospital,
that they must demand to have the patient sent to a
hospital that can treat the patient. We had to do this
for his total medical needs.
It should also be noted that this trauma center is
already in place. It has been in place, since the new
emergency room was opened at Lawnwood.
It was designed to be the "trauma center in the St.
Lucie County area."


Response from
Lawnwood Medical Center

My heart goes out to the woman whose father needed
a neurosurgeon when one was not available in our com-
munity That is exactly why we are asking the community
to support a full service Level II Trauma Center in St.
Lucie County.
Her comment that we are already serving as a trauma
center is incorrect, but her frustration with the lack of
medical specialists is right on target.
The proposed trauma district, if approved on June 26,
will allow Lawnwood to move forward with the trauma
center by having the funds necessary to ensure that
medical specialists, as required by the State of Florida,
are available. 24 hours a day.
As a Level II trauma center, we will be required to pro-
vide a full range of specialty services, and specially
trained critical care trauma surgeons will be in the hospi-
tal waiting for such patients to arrive.
Today the community has a shortage of certain spe-

Will saving minutes really save lives?

On June 26, the registered voters of St. Lucie County will
be asked to vote on a referendum to vote yes or no to fund a
trauma center at Lawnwood Medical Center in Fort Pierce.
Very little time has been allowed for eligible voters to
become educated for the need of a trauma center. The fact
that many voters will be away for the season and not be
aware of the need to vote is being un-democratic. In feder-
al, state, and local elections considerable time and publicity
is given, as well as sample ballots.
As a consequence, a low voter turnout is anticipated. The
timing of this voting appears to have been carefully organ-
ized by those with a vested interest.
Using the Homestead exemption of paying only 15 cents
a day vs. 17 cents a day for those who do not have the
exemption is being deceptive against the real cost that will
be incurred. Residents who own real estate, but who are not
registered voters, will be taxed at a higher amount.
The ploy that is being used is often used by high-pressure
sales persons that an item only costs a few cents a day.
Nickels and dimes make dollars, and dollars add up to mil-
lions very quickly. What follows is cost over-runs that tax-
payers have to fund.
The use of fear tactics to get people to vote in favor of the
referendum is being misleading, and perhaps dishonest,
when no facts have been presented to show that there are
inordinate delays when transferring victims to Palm Beach
or Melbourne.
There has been no mention of whether a certificate of
need will be required from the state agency. If this is
required, the process requires an explanation of how the
request will be funded. In addition, if the certificate of need
that was approved for the emergency room expansion that
occurred in 2006 included a trauma center it should be a
part: f that certificate. One would doubt that an approval
would have been granted for a project not yet approved.
To use the name of a St. Lucie County sheriff as though a
vote was taken by every emergency technician, ambulance
driver, medivac pilot, fireman, police officer, ,and sheriff's
deputy that a trauma center will save lives is deceptive.
It would suggest that a vested interest is at stake.


To quote that the state of Florida obviously recognized the
need for a trauma center on the Treasure Coast, and that the
director of trauma services for the state said publicly that a
trauma center will save lives does not warrant a tacit
approval from a certificate of need by the state agency.
For county taxpayers to fund a projectfor a for-profit hos-
pital is not in the best interest of taxpayers who will have to
make up short-falls in funds that may be needed.
The voters should not be duped into voting in favor of a
trauma center at this time.

.Response from Lawnwood Medical Center
Recently the supervisor of elections predicted a 15-20
percent voter turnout for the June 26 election.
We're thrilled with that response and hope to see an even
greater showing by citizens of St. Lucie County..
The 2006 primary election resulted in a 17 percent
turnout, so seeing this much interest in the issue of whether
or not to support a trauma center in St. Lucie County is very
encouraging.
Supporters of this issue feel strongly that the greater the
turnout, the more likely the vote will result in approval of
this life saving initiative.
The vote is simply whether we want to create a trauma
district to fund the medical specialists trauma surgeons,
neurosurgeons, etc. required to be available at a trauma
center 24/7.
The district will be funded by up to 1/4 mill per year. It
can't be more than that unless the voters of the county
change it.
If the assessed value on your home, or vacant property, is
$100,000, the trauma fee would be $25 per year. If the
assessed value is $250,000 it will be $56 per year. It will differ
for each taxpayer based on the assessed value of the proper-
ty we pay taxes on.
Lawnwood is a tax-paying hospital. Thirty years ago, St.
Lucie County chose to have a tax-paying hospital system
that wouldn't drain resources from other needs. That's all


for-profit means in health care.
A for-profit hospital pays taxes, and a not-for-profit hos-
pital avoids paying property taxes.
Last year Lawnwood paid $1.2 million in taxes, employed
1,200 people, and contributed to virtually every major civic
and charitable organization in the county.
At the same time, the hospital wrote off $70 million in
uncompensated care. Hospitals are the only tax paying
business we're aware of that are required bylaw to give away
our services.
Yes, we're fortunate that Lawnwood and St. Lucie medical
centers are HCA hospitals. That provides our hospitals with
resources and systems that otherwise wouldn't be available.
In the last eight years, Lawnwood has invested over $60
million in capital and equipment for the hospital, and St.
Lucie has invested over $45 million in capital improve-
ments.
Those improvements also increase the amount of taxes
we pay. When critics cite the size of HCA as a criticism
aimed at Lawnwood, they don't point out the amount of
charity care, taxes paid, reinvestment through building
. improvements and equipment,. charitable contributions,
and salaries and wages that'are pumped into the communi-
ty.
It's a little unfair to cite earnings of a company without
noting the expenses and contributions that .come out of
those earnings.
Most business people understand that making a profit is
important in order to maintain a viable business and serv-
ice.
In communities, and this is particularly true in northern
states, where the focus has been on tax-exempt hospitals,
universities, and other government centers, some cities are
literally on the brink of bankruptcy.
They have taken so many pieces of property off of the tax
rolls, the businesses and residents who are left simply can't
support community needs.
Yes, Lawnwood is a for-profit hospital, and is proud to
help support the many needs of the community.
Our tax dollars are spent with tax paying businesses every
day. Those are the companies who pave our roads, build

cialists, which causes us to have to trans-
fer patients to either Melbourne or Palm
Beach.
Having a trauma center in St. Lucie
County will ensure that critically ill or
injured patients can be cared for right
here at home.
Lawnwood invested $12 million to
expand our emergency department in
order to better meet the needs of the com-
munity, and to prepare us to serve as a
trauma center.
The state has certain requirements of a
trauma facility, and we now meet those
physical requirements.
In April 2006 the state approved Lawn-
wood's application to become a Level II
trauma center, with a deadline to. be ready
and serving our first trauma patient by
Oct. 1, 2007.
The vote on June 26 will determine
whether we move forward or not.
No one in health care wants to see a
patient's care affected or delayed due to
lack of medical specialists.
Our nursing staff has to work with fami-
lies every day to arrange for transfers to
facilities out of the community.
If St. Lucie County votes yes on June 26,
we'll be able to provide that life-saving
care right here in our own back yard.
Beth Williams
Lawn wood Medical Center Spokeswoman

Stop bleeding the public

It is deplorable that your newspaper
would support a trauma center at
Lawnwood Hospital that would be
using the public's hard earned tax dol-
lars.
Lawnwood Hospital recently
announced that they made $14 million
profit.
It is unclear why they want a trauma
center, because such centers do not
make a profit.
They serve a high-risk population
who oftendo not pay for these expen-
sive services.
To add any tax burden on the public,
who already pay exorbitant property
taxes and hidden taxes, is outrageous!
Further, once a facility has its grip on
public tax dollars, it will never let up, often
begging for more tax dollars in the future.
Lawnwood Hospital has already begun
the brainwashing marketing of its pro-


posed trauma center hoping to convince
the uninformed, limited education, easily
swayed public to vote in favor of it, often
in subtle ways.
If Lawnwood Hospital is so determined
to establish a trauma center, there are
other resources, which could be tapped.
These include private donations, their
own profits, state and federal monies,
which are tax dollars as well.
Fund raising should always be part of
any hospital's activities, especially since
they are required to provide emergency
services to all people, regardless of
whether or not they can pay.
University affiliation can be another
avenue to explore.
Stop bleeding the public. Enough is
enough.
Is Lawnwood Hospital becoming a self-
serving, manipulative, greedy parasite like
the politicians and oil companies mas-
querading as benevolent caregivers?

Response from
Lawnwood Medical Center

Over thirty years ago, our community
chose to have a for-profit hospital system
because it could not support actax-exempt
public system.
Over those years the hospital has grown
with the community, adding services and
capacity to meet the needs of the commu-
nity. All of that has been accomplished
without any tax support.
In fact, Lawnwood pays property taxes,
about $1.2 million in 2006.
In the same year the hospital provided
$70 million in uncompensated care.
Yes the hospital's profit in 2006 was
reported at $14 million, but out of those
dollars we invested $12 million to expand
the emergency department creating a
facility appropriate for a trauma center.
We also paid in excess of $1 million for a
new cardiac catheterization laboratory for
the heart center, and purchased some
new equipment for the operating rooms.
All hospitals must make a profit in order
to reinvest in technology and infrastruc-
ture for the facility. Capital investments
made by hospitals are not reflected on the
profit and loss statements reported on by
the news media.
Lawnwood's goal to implement a Level
II trauma center is based on the same
motivation we've had as we've added all of
our new services, that of meeting the
needs of the community.
Some of the services we've added over

whether or not to support
trauma services in St. Lucie
County inspires passion in
both proponents and
opponents.
For everyone in the
middle the vast majority
of our community- they
are left to sort out fact from
myth in order to make an
informed and responsible
decision that will affect the
future of our county for the
foreseeable future.
There are undeniable
facts about the upcoming
June 26 referendum to
create a Trauma Care
District to fund medical
specialists at a Trauma
Center at Lawnwood, and I
believe they deserve to be
reviewed.
Fact: Today victims of
trauma and other ill or
injured patients who
require specialty treatment
by doctors who are not,
available in our communi-
ty, are transferred to either
Holmes Regional in ,
Melbourne or St. Mary's in
Palm Beach for life-saving
care.
Fact: In 2006, over 600
such patients from St. Lucie
County were transferred
out of our county and their
families and friends were
forced to travel long
distances to be with their
loved ones. The cost of one
tank of gas saved in a trip to
and from one of those
centers will pay the average
annual fee to have a trauma
center right here in our
community.


Fact: The designation of
"trauma center" has been
awarded to Lawnwood
Regional Medical Center
and Heart Institute by the
State of Florida's Depart-
ment of Health Trauma
Division. Subject to the
passage of the June 26
referendum, trauma
services will begin October
1,2007.
Fact: Lawnwood has
already invested $12
million to expand their
Emergency Department
and make it "trauma ready."
None of the dollars raised
through the Trauma
District will be needed for
building the center. Those
dollars will be used to fund
the salaries of the many
and varied medical special-
ists required by the state to
man the designated trauma
center, not for hospital
expansion.
Fact: The Trauma District
willbe funded through a
maximum mill per year on
assessed property value. If
your assessed value is
$100,000 per year, your
annual trauma care fee
would be $25. If your
assessed value is $250,000 it
will be $56. For some it will
be more, and for many it
will be less. The millage
cannot be increased
without another vote by the
people and the entire
trauma taxing district will
sunset in 10 years unless
renewed by a vote of the
people.
Fact: The trauma funds
collected will be a special
purpose fund administered
by the St. Lucie County Fire
Board sitting as the Trauma
Board. The Trauma Board
will pay directly the
medical specialists
required to be available
24/7 at the trauma center.


Fact: The Board of
County Commissioners
must pass an ordinance
creating the trauma district
if the referendum passes.
That ordinance requires
that all four elected bodies
(St. Lucie County, Port St.
Lucie, Fort Pierce, and St.
LucieVillage) also approve
the ordinance for it to be in
effect. There is no possibili-
ty of one community
refusing to participate and
creating more of a burden
on another community.
This is an all-or-nothing
proposition for everyone in
St. Lucie County.
Fact: Lawnwqod is a
private, for-profit hospital.
That means the hospital is
a taxpayer, and contributes
well over $1 million a year
to the tax rolls. The hospital
will be one of the biggest
contributors to the trauma
district fund because it
must pay based on its
assessed value too.
Yes, the hospital makes a
profit on general hospital
operations and that is what
they used for improve-
ments such as the $12
million ER expansion.
Fact: Whether or a
trauma center opens in St
Lucie County will be
decided by you and I as
registered voters on June
26.
I am a passionate
supporter of passing this
trauma care referendum
because I want better
healthcare. for my family
and my community. This is
our opportunity to raise the
bar for healthcare in St.
Lucie County and I plan to
vote yes on June 26.

"Our main message is for

budgets are going to be
affected by cuts. But as a
board member with the
Fort Pierce Little League,
he's especially concerned.
"If they cut parks and
recreation, we're not going
to have people out there to
mow and maintain the
fields, put striping down for
the ball games," he said.


Paintball
From page Al
Parks and Recreation
Department. "There
seems to be considerable
interest from young
adults and teens, which
is a hard part of the pop-
ulation to attract to
recreation."
Mr. Cloe said he would
like to be located out
west, near the planned
outlet and regional malls
off 1-95 and Becker Road,
so parents can shop
while their children play.
"We will have plenty of
staff and the kids will be
able to spend the whole
day with us while their
parents are at the mall,"
Mr. Cloe said. "We will do
it right, with defibrilla-
tors, CPR training and
insurance. And we have
strong rules for the kids
to follow."
Mr. Cloe said he would
pay to construct the
facility, with the skate
and BMX bike areas con-
structed by contractors.
But he would like to have
the paintball area con-
structed by volunteers.
"I'm going to make this
a community event," Mr.
Cloe said. "Why not let
the kids build it. Palm
Bay did it and is one of
the most 'successful
paintball parks. It was all
built by volunteers."
What Mr. Cloe sees for
the paintball course in
Port St. Lucie is a country
town, with plywood
churches, stores and sta-
bles for participants to
hide behind and shoot
paintballs from.
While the search con-
tinues for land, Mr. Cloe
wants to be a good
neighbor. He said he has
plans for buffers to pro-
tect residents from noise
and lights. Mr. Proulx
said he has sent a letter
to Mr. Cloe, outlining
issues the Planning and
Zoning committee said
need to be addressed.
"If he is still interested
and sends a letter back
supporting the changes,
then I would support it
and bring this to (City
Manager) Dop Cooper to
put it on the council
agenda," Mr. Proulx said.
Mr. Cloe said the
neighbors near his 51-
acre facility in Fort Pierce
opposed his business at
first.
"Now they come out to
play," he said.
It took him three years
to open that location.
Councilwoman
Michelle Berger said she
supports Mr. Cloe's plan.
"I think it's a valid idea
for partnerships with pri-
vate entities," Mrs. Berg-
er said. "It's appropriate
when we're looking at
ways to reduce the tax
burden without losing
services. I'm excited also
because he has other
ideas.".

From page A1
cases, oxycodone was the
cause of death.
Steve Sessoms, a detec-
tive in the St. Lucie County
Sheriff's Office's Special
Investigations Drug Diver-
sion Unit, said oxydodone
and other prescription
drugs are more accepted in
society than drugs like
cocaine.
"They see it as a cleaner
drug because it's coming
from pharmaceutical com-
panies," he said. "It's not in
the streets and in your
face. It doesn't have the
stigma of crack. It's a
behind-closed-doors
drug."
But every year,. more
people die from prescrip-
tion drugs than every other
illegal drug combined, he
noted.
Like oxycodone-related
deaths, hydrocodone and
propoxyphene deaths are
also on the rise here.
Deaths involving
hydrocodone, a chemical
cousin of oxycodone, went
from 15 cases in 2005 to 26
in 2006. However,
hydrocodone was the main
cause of death in fewer
cases in 2006, with four last
year and six in 2005.
The opposite is true for
propoxyphene, a mildly
narcotic pain reliever relat-
ed to methadone. Deaths
involving propoxyphene
doubled from 2005 to 2006,
rising from eight to 16. The
drug was ruled as the main
cause of two deaths last
year and one in 2005.
Statewide, deaths caused
by oxycodone and
hydrocodone increased by
28.9 and 12.8 percent in
2006 over 2005. Oxycodone
killed 496 people in Florida
in 2006, and was fourth
among drugs that were the
most lethal. In deaths in
which oxycodone was
detected, the drug was
found to be the cause in 54
percent of the cases. Hero-
in is still the most lethal
drug, causing 81.3 percent
of the deaths in which the
drug was detected in the
deceased. Methadone
killed 73.5 percent of those
in which it was detected.
Prescription drug abuse
is more prevalent in St.
Lucie County now than in
previous years.

Examiner Dr. Roger Mittle-
man. "Methadone is big.
Oxycodone deaths we're not
seeing as much of now; we're
seeing more methadone."
That's because more doc-
tors are prescribing
methadone over oxycodone
since the latter drug has
received much negative
attention in the press, he
guessed.
Like oxycodone,
methadone becomes deadly
when abused because it
suppresses respiration to an
extent that the brain doesn't
receive the oxygen it would
normally receive, Dr. Mittle-
man said.
"What happens is the
heart continues to beat after
respirations stop, then it
slows and dies," he said.
Dr. Mittleman made these
statements June 14, the
same day his office handled
a case where a deceased per-
son had levels of methadone
in their system that were
higher than usual, but not
strikingly high. Another drug
discovered in the same body,
diazepam, a tranquilizer,
enhanced the strength of the
methadone. This abuse of
multiple drugs at the same
time is known as "polydrug."
"It's very common to see
polydrug intoxication," Dr.
Mittleman said. "You see
one drug that's the main
player, and other drugs that
are synergistic with that."
Oxycodone and
methadone may be killers,
but in Dr. Mittleman's opin-
ion, the worst drug available
is alcohol.
"Fifty percent of traffic
accidents are related to alco-
hol," he said. "Not only do
the people who were drink-
ing die, but so do the people
they hit. Then there's the
drunken brawl, where peo-
ple get shot."
As methadone appears to
be gaining popularity,
cocaine, as always, is still
prevalent in District 19. But
deaths in which cocaine was
detected on the Treasure
Coast actually dropped from
.58 in .2005 .to 45. in 2006.
Cocaine was ruled as the
cause of death in 17 cases
last year, compared to 28 in
2005. It was the first year


deaths involving cocaine
dropped here since 2002.
Statewide, however, deaths
involving cocaine have risen
every year since 2000, last
year increasing by 5.6 per-
cent when compared to
2005.
Lately, Dr. Mittleman said

Public transportation
needed
Just recently in Port St.
Lucie a friend of mine had
a brief conversation with a
city council member.
My friend mentioned
that we need much better
public transportation.
The reply was that, "It
would cost too much."
Then my friend named
several cities in Florida
that had good service. The
reply was "Those places
are losing money."
My friend asked "What


about these old people
who can't drive anymore?"
The answer was, "Let
then take a cab."
Finally my friend said,
what happens' when you
and your friend are too old,
sick, or near-sighted to
drive?" All of .a sudden
there was no answer
The city council member
seem t forget that it is the
public who puts them in
office.
It is also the public that
can remove, or impeach,
them.
If only the citizens in this
town would wake up.

The destruction
of Port St. Lucie
As if we did not rape all
of the land in Port St. Lucie
enough, now there is a
road cutting through the
only little jewel of country
left.

I am talking about the
new road going through
the equestrian community
off of Silver Oak Road.
Do we really need anoth-
er U.S. 1 so close to the
Savannahs?
How about using all of
that grant money for
repairing the existing
roads, or the over crowded
gang-ridden school sys-
tems.
Port Saint Lucie was a
nice place to raise your
children 12 years ago .Now
I am walking away from a
home that plummeted in
value, and the New West
Virginia corridor is on the
next street over.
.Property taxes! Need I
.say more?
The construction indus-
try killed this town. If you
were employed during the
boom you most likely were
laid off and lost every-
thing.
The working class is
hurting, but the big wigs
collected their fortunes
and left town.
Investors, where are you
now?
Where was the planning
for this?
Foreclosures greed for
the banks and investors,
and sorrow for the poor
sap who thought this was a
quality place to live and
raise a family.
Why do people want to
move to Port St. Lucie?
Leave the little bit of par-
adise alone. Fix what's bro-
ken already.

Illegal annexation
Why hasn't anything
been done about the illegal
annexation by the city of
Port St. Lucie. of Walton
Road, both the north and
south parcels to Indian
River Drive?
I, and other property
owners have been calling
St. Lucie County adminis-
trators and commissioners
for quite a while, but noth-
ing happens.
Since you say you check
facts, be sure you check the
date it was annexed, and
what the city limits were
on that date.
I have notice a lot more
Port St. Lucie addresses
popping up in the several
years this has been allowed
to stand.
They have sold off some
of the lots now. What will
happen? Does this mean
that they will annex the
rest of us?
The citizens are afraid to
ban together because of
"slap" lawsuits,, and the
legal expense.
Will anyone do anything
about this illegal annexza-
tion?
I certainly hope so.

Nancy Pelosi and me
If Nancy Pelosi agrees to
wear a headscarf, then I
could wear a burkha.
I am sure I could con-
form. I wouldn't have to
have cosmetic surgery to
ensure my self-esteem. No
one would notice that I
have put on a few pounds in
the last ten years. I wouldn't
have to worry what style
dress would make me look.
best. Yes, I can see the
advantages.
I wonder how all those
businesses would feel about
the loss of customers for
spa treatments, nail and
hair care, cosmetic surgery,
and tattoo parlors.
A new economy would
surely develop, particularly
in the self-help section of
the bookstores. I would be

From page A 0


From Brigitte Gabriel's
book "Because They Hate,"
it states "Women have no
rights in Islamic societies.
Women are not permitted
to get an education. They
are not allowed to leave the
house for work without a
male guardian's written
approval."
Could this be true?
Yet in Paris, these women
are working. On the Paris
streets these Muslim
women are begging as a
short distance from them
stand their husbands wait-
ing for the cup to fill.
Always they say do you
speak English knowing, I
guess, that those who speak
English are more generous!
The Koran gives the hus-
band the right to beat his
wife (Germany's in turmoil
over this).
Sura 4:4 in the Koran says,
"Men are the managers of
the affairs of women. Those
you fear may be rebellious,
admonish and banish them
to their couches and beat
them."
Now in Demark, an
uproar occurs as a Muslim
woman wearing a head-
scarf and obeying Muslim
law is the only candidate for
Parliament in a district
where she lives. .
The British newspaper,
The Guardian, reports on
the Turkish debate of the
mosques vs. the state. The
war between a state religion
symbolized by the Mosque
and the separation of
church and state.
Do American Muslims
believe like so many of the
billion Muslims that the
Mosque is the state?, How
about the Muslims at the
Mosque in West Palm
Beach, in Boca, and in
Orlando?
Let us consider the writ-
ing of Tawfid Hamid.
"Clearly there is something
wrong with the Islamic
world. Women are stoned to
death and undergo clitorec-
tomies. Gays hang from the
gallows; mothers teach
young children the ideal of
martyrdom, extort Muslims
to exterminate Jews before
the'end of days."'" .
Is this true? If not, where
are the voices to explain
these worldwide events?
In the Movie "Obsession"
we see the teachers encour-
aging young children to
chant "Death to America.
Death to Jews and Chris-
tians."
Is this merely fiction?
What does this mean for
our neighbors of various
religions? Convert to Islam


or Die?
American brothers and
sisters of Islam, I beg you to
write, to speak, to educate
us.
Do you believe in the sep-.
aration of church and state?
Do you believe that a per-
son has the right to choose
his or her religion without
fear? Do you believe
women should be full citi-
zens to work, to vote, and to
speak in public?
I can't hear you. The
silence is deafening.
Do you believe the words
in the Declaration of Inde-
pendence? Do you support
the U.S. Constitution?
Yes, or no?
Speak out so the popu-
lace can hear you.
I don't notice anything
happening right here in
Stuart, so I shouldn't have to
worry.
If the silence continues, I
will get my headscarf and
burka ready and Nancy
Pelosi and I can share a
style.

Who is driving
the bus?

I hear that St. Lucie
County and Martin County
school districts are hiring
bus drivers, and are adver-
tising that you do not have
to have citizenship to get
these positions.
I'm wondering how they
will do their background
checks, the fingerprint
checking, and all the other
checks that they do for
other people those who
are citizens.
How will we know who is
driving those buses?
I don't know if this is
true, but I've heard it from
two different sources. One
was a radio station.

Response from the
Martin County
School District

Employees of the Martin
County School District


must be one of the follow-
ing, and provide the neces-
sary documentation:
A citizen or national of
the United States,
*A lawful permanent res-
ident
*A resident alien author-
ized to work in the United
States.
For employees who are
not U.S. citizens, but are
permanent residents or
resident aliens, the school
district tracks the employ-
ees' work eligibility status
to ensure continued com-
pliance with federal regu-
lations.
All employees must also
successfully complete a
Level II background
screening, which includes
a state background check
through the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement, and a
national background
check through the FBI
database.
In addition, the school
district requires drug
screenings, and thorough
reference checks to further
ensure each of its employ-
ees meets the high
employment standards of
the Martin County School
District.

From what I see on tele-

I'll bet that the code

Buried alive

Florida Fish and Wildlife
requires extensive activity
to be done by developers
before they build on any
land that is inhabited by
gopher tortoises.
There are several 'stages
that they must go through
before they bury them
alive.
The developers now get
the permit to bury them
alive, without any effort
whatsoever to relocate the
tortoises as required by the
state wildlife service.
Their entire regulation is
ignored by the developers,

SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR REALITY"

Trauma Center

The funding of the trau-
ma center at Lawnwood
Hospital has become a
political outcry in our coun-
ty at a time when the prop-
erty taxes are ridiculous.
My wife and I paid almost
$9,000 in property tax last
year. That tax bill forced us
to sell property we had no
intention of selling.
However, I find myself
strongly in favqr'of the. trau-
ma center at Lawnwood.
This month I have com-
pleted my nineteenth year
as a pastor of a local church
in this community.
During this time I have
made many trips at illegal
speeds to be with a. family
during a trauma at Holmes
Regional in Melbourne and
St. Mary's Hospital in West
Palm.
The discussion concern-
ing how many this will affect
in our county is nebulous to
me.
I have seen the faces of
the victims and the families
that were involved.
I have seen a seventeen-
year-old girl that was
involved in an accident on
Indian River Drive. She
could have benefited greatly
from receiving immediate
care.
Her parents and family
waited in the chapel at
Holmes, while I stood with
thefr daughter as she was
disconnected from life sup-
port.
I have seen a sheriff's
deputy and his family after a
very traumatic accident
while on duty. I was sched-
uled to perform his wedding
within days of the accident.
The emergency crew
worked diligently on thfs
deputy.
They amputated his legs
out of necessity and did
their best to stabilize him for
his trip to St. Mary's.
The surgeon climbed into
the helicopter to help keep
him alive until they arrived
at St. Mary's.
I have seen an eighteen-
month-old baby within this
past year that had fallen into


a pond. Again, the staff at
Lawnwood worked diligent-
ly on this beautiful little girl.
It was decided at once that
she would be flown to St.
Mary's.
The family and friends
waited until the last second
and then drove at high
speed to be at St. Mary's
sometime close to when the
baby would arrive.
We beat the helicopters
arrival because the Lawn-
wood emergency room was
still fighting to stabilize the
baby for flight.
I have participated in an
airlift of multiple victims
that had a tragic accident on
Edwards Road.
The accident happened at
night and there was no time
to wait for the trip to Lawn-
wood, so I was asked to turn
on the lights on our church
parking lot so multiple heli-
copters could land.
The body of the victims
lying on the stretchers, with
the eerie sound of the heli-
copters coming, is still in my
memory.
There are many more
accounts and faces.
I think you might under-
stand why I support this

trauma center.
I know some are hesitant
because it is a private corpo-
ration. I wonder why? We
rejoice in supporting a Wal-
mart Distribution Center
and Torrey Pines with public
backed tax incentives. '
Personally I rejoice that
Lawnwood has attained the
level of skill to be certified to
become a trauma center. It
is the medical equivalent of
the Met's winning a pen-
nant.
This trauma center can do
nothing but raise the level of
medical care we receive.
Finally, I need to address
the tax.
I calculate that this tax
would cost my wife and me
about $56 a year. In view of
the thousands I paid last
year, this tax is insignificant.
Further, in every situation
I have witnessed, when the
church was made aware
that something had hap-
pened to one of our own, it
would be little effort to col-
lect in seconds over a thou-.
sand dollars.

Molly's board
president answers
critics

In response to recent
requests for Judy Cruz, exec-
utive director for Molly's
House, to be fired and for
me to resign, I wish to state
Judy will remain in her posi-
tion and I will remain as
board president.
Judy Cruz has been our
executive directorfor four
years. Her contributions in
managing this organization
have been significant. They
include:
uOur annual donations
have increased each year
and are at record levels.
uThe Molly's House facili-
ty has been maintained at
the highest level ever.
uOccupancy at Molly's
House has tripled.
uThe experience level of
our volunteers has
improved significantly and
turnover within the volun-
teer ranks is the lowest it has
ever been.
uShe has made significant
positive progress in raising
awareness of Molly's House
throughout the Treasure
Coast region.
uOur endowment funds
have increased each year in
principle, appreciation, div-
idend and interest. All of our
funds are managed by three
major local financial institu-
tions and our books are
open to the public.
During my 13 years of
service to Molly's House, I
have chaired the annual golf
tournament and I am
pleased to say we have
raised more than $800,000
during my tenure as chair.
Judy Cruz' contribution to
the success of the annual
fundraiser is significant. Her
organizational skills in the
tournament, cocktail party,
and auction have helped
raise more than $200,000 in

Trash pickup

Not all residents are in
favor of once a week trash
day. Why can't people just
leave some good things
alone? I've always liked
twice per week pickup for
the simple reason if I hap-
pen to miss day one, I can
catch them on day two. I'm
sure I'm not the only one
that has ever missed the
first pickup.
Have you ever noticed
the odor from trash as it
sits in the heat for a few
days? Imagine that same
smell when someone miss-
es the pickup day, and it
sits there for another week.
Next they will tell us they
can only come every other
week, as they do up north
where myrelatives live.
I can see it now; a visitor
comes through town, and
From the odor wonders if
there is a landfill near.
Nope, just all the neigh-
borhood trash still sitting
there.

the last two years alone. She
also has initiated other
fundraising activities such
as our major annual appeal
campaign.
Our board of directors is
at its peak performance in
terms of skills, financial
contributions, and guid-
ance as we all strive for the
continued success and
improvement of Molly's
House.
In November, our board
of directors will convene a
nominating committee to
accept applications for our
new board. We will accept a
nomination for either Kevin
or Debbie Sharkey at that
time. In the interim, we will
continue to hold an adviso-
ry position open for Kevin
or Debbie Sharkey. Accept-
ing this position will allow
family input until our new
board is sworn into service.
We have always valued the
input of the Molly's House
founding family. We urge
that input to continue in the
advisory position.
Unfortunately, untruths
continue to circulate in our
community stating that
members of Molly's House
founding family were
removed from our board of
directors. The rumors are
absolutely untrue. As stated
above,, Kevin Sharkey was
approved as an advisory.
board member. This is not
without precedence since
we have a former board
member currently in an
advisory capacity who has
served for several years. This


person continues to be
active in Molly's House busi-
ness.
Finally, I wish to thank our
community and those who
rallied for Molly's House for
your continued encourage-
ment and assistance. Your
generous donations of time
and dollars are greatly
appreciated.

Once again
in South Florida
There are those who
ought not to be on the road.
In south Florida there
seems to be a "don't give a
damn" for the rules of the
road.
Recently a boy was
pinned between a cement
truck and a guardrail in
Dade County. I'm sorry to
say he was brown, and the
"father," who did not speak
English, seemed to be at
fault.
The authorities seemed to
agree. The cement truck was
not licensed, the driver was
not licensed, and the boy
was in a folding chair, and of
course, not restrained.
The boy had his arm
amputated at the scene.
The father is faced with
multiple charges.
Oh, by the way, he had
two bald tires.
My first suggestion is to
avoid Dade County.
The second suggestion is
to travel in the early morn-
ing hours when the profes-
sionals are on the road.

Port St. Lucie
Lennard Road project


plus community of 1,850
homes in Port Saint Lucie,
would like to address the
Saint Lucie County Com-
missioners' meeting held on
May8.
The commissioners
decided to schedule a pub-
lic hearing on the Lennard
Road project as soon as pos-
sible.
We were shocked and dis-
mayed at the total disregard
for the, concerns of the
3,000-plus residents of the
Savanna Club.
Lennard Road will slice
through our community,
and isolate one third of the
homes from the main part
of the community and its
services and facilities.
All Savanna Club home-
owners pay land and build-
ing taxes. This action disen-
franchises more than 1,000
of our residents who will not
be in attendance during the
summer. They still have the
right to have their voices
heard.
Their disdain was further
evidenced when we were
told that the hearing would
be held at Indian River
Community College in Fort
Pierce, making it difficult for
many residents to attend.
What is even more trou-
blesome is that the commis-
sioners, voted to move.
immediately, even though
their own engineer, Mike
Powley,. stated it would be
better to delay the hearings,
as prices are falling for the
materials needed to con-
struct the road.
During the meeting, the
commissioners stated that
the residents were aware of
the Lennard Road extension
before they purchased a
home in Savanna Club.
In fact, most of the
prospective buyers were not
informed by the sales agents

Christmas market tours an incredible value


A after the sizzling high
cost of flights to
L IEurope for the
summer, it is a cool relief
to see low fares for a
European vacation.
The popular Christmas
markets of England,
Germany, Holland, France,
Belgium, Austria and
Switzerland are rich in
tradition with vibrant
evenings filled with
millions of Christmas
lights, flickering candles
on Advent wreaths, air
filled with .delicious
aromas and music.
Stop and listen to the
children singing carols on
the street corner by
candlelight.. Witness the
scenes that you would
only see on Christmas
cards.
This year, discover the
holidays of the past.,
Traditionally, Christmas
markets took place in
December. Now, they start
in mid-November and are
usually over by the week
before Christmas.
Some say the tradition
originated in Dresden,
Germany, about 600 years
ago so people could buy
the important things,
before the harsh winter
came.
Others believe it was a
celebration of Advent and
generally conducted near
local churches where


PATTY TOPPA
Travel columnist
vendors were allowed to
sell food and goods to .
celebrate the season.
Either way there are
thousands of Christmas
markets around Europe
and people flock to
experience the season in
both the big cities as well
as the rural towns.
Each market has devel-
oped its own individual
character, influenced by
its region and traditions.
You can experience all of
the local foods, as well as
individual crafts that tell
the story.
There are handmade
ornaments, wooden toys,
dolls, candles and Advent
wreaths, as well as fine
chocolates, cheeses and
the famous gliihwein (hot
mulled wine).
Entire cities as well as
small surrounding villages


are lit up with twinkling
lights.
There are many options
available if you want to see
this incredible wonder-
land.
Although most of the
river cruises have stopped
for the season, some gear
up just for "Christmas
Market" cruises along the
Danube and Rhine rivers.
From Basel to Cologne,
Budapest to Passau,
Cologne to Nuremberg,
and Nuremberg to Vienna,
all have incredible jour-'
neys that allow you to
experience how the
Europeans have been
celebrating the holiday for
centuries.
Amadeus Waterways
offers an 11-night cruise
from $2,499 a person,
including airfare.
Collette Vacations offers
"Mozart's Christmas" tour
featuring the Christmas
Markets of Saltsburg, Linz,
Vienna and Prague for as
little as $2,099 a person.
The price is for eight days,
10 meals and includes
airfare.
Explore the cities associ-
ated with the life and
times of Mozart, one of the
world's greatest com-
posers.

the Crosstown Parkway is
going to be ready well
before a new hospital can
be built. And all of these
things together will give
people out west better
access to health care '"
The final approval is
expected in 45 days from
the June 15 decision. If the
approval is appealed, the
case would go to the
Department of Adminis-
trativre Hearings. The
process could take as long
as two years.
Once the final Certifi-
cate of Need is issued, it
can no longer be


appealed.
Mr. Harman believes St.
Lucie Medical Center and
Lawnwood will appeal the
decision, but that Martin
Memorial will be allowed
t6 build a hospital in the
end.
"It's now more a ques-
tion of 'when' as opposed
to 'if,'" Mr. Harman said. "I
really do believe it will be
appealed and it will be
lengthy, but I think we will
prevail and we will build
this hospital."

Buckle up kids to keep them safe


Weiall saw the
pictures of pop
star Britney
Spears driving with her
son on her lap.
A lot of people won-
dered what she could
have been thinking.
We all know about seat
belts and safety, but
actually, the recommen-
dations for keeping safe
in motor vehicles
depends on their ages
and weights, and is a
little more complicated
that just buckling up.
With summer vaca-
tions, kids are home and
traveling with mom and
dad or visiting grandpar-
ents, and these safety
guidelines need to be
followed every time a
child is in any car. Most
accidents happen close
to home; don't be in such
a hurry that you risk a
child's safety or life.
The National Highway
Traffic Safety Administra-
tion recommends four
steps for kid safety:
Rear facing
Forward facing
Booster
Seat belt
To provide infants with
the maximum protec-
tion, they should be in
the back seat, the safest
place in the vehicle, in a
rear-facing child safety
seat.
* At a minimum, the
NHTSA recommends that
infants remain in a rear-
facing seat until they are
at least 1 and weigh at'
least 20 pounds.
If the seat you have has
a higher weight limit,
keep the child in it as
long as you can.
When children outgrow
the rear-facing seat, they
can graduate to a for-


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well
ward-facing seat, still in
the back seat, until they
reach the upper weight
or height limit for the
seat. That's usually when
the child is about 4 and
40 pounds.
Once the child out-
grows the forward-facing
seat, he should ride in a
booster seat in the back
seat, until the vehicle's
seat belts fit properly.
A proper fit means that
the lap belt lies across
the upper thigh and the
shoulder belt fits across
the chest. This usually
happens when a child is
about 8 or about 4-feet,
9-inches tall.
Children 13 and
younger should always
be in the back seat with
the seat belt on properly.
Never put the shoulder
strap under the child's
arm or behind the child's
back. This can cause
internal injuries in a
crash.
The NHTSA suggests
the following tips to
ensure a safe trip with
kids.
* Everyone in the
vehicle needs a child
safety seat, booster seat
or safety belt. Those who
are not buckled up can
be thrown around the car


or outside it, injuring
themselves and others.
* There must be one
seat belt for each per-
sop. Buckling two
together, even if both are
children. could result in


injury to both.
Never hold a child in
your lap. The child could
be crushed in a crash or
torn from the arms and
thrown from the vehicle.
Never ride in the
cargo hold of a station
wagon, van or pickup.

There are many types
of car seats. The "best"
one is the one that fits
your child and can be
installed properly.
For more information
about choosing and
installing a child safety
seat, visit www.nhtsa.gov.
The site includes child
safety installation tips,
product ratings, recalls
and other useful informa-
tion.
You can call the Depart-
ment of Transportation
Vehicle Safety Hotline at
(888) 327-4236.
You can also visit
www.seatcheck.orgfor
information about seat
belt laws and proper
installation, and find a
certified child passenger
safety technician in your
area to check your instal-
lation and make sure that
you've done it properly.
What could you have to
do that's more important
than your child's, or
grandchild's safety?

Follow simple steps to achieve a great life that's well lived


In the soul of a cater-
pillar lives a beautiful
butterfly yearning to
be set free.
In the soul of every
human on earth lives a
beautiful, magnificent
purpose wanting the
same.
Sometimes we mistake
what the hunger is for.
We think it is for love of
another person, fame or
fortune and other world-
ly comforts. The true
hunger is the yearning in
our deeper self to find
our destiny.
The No. 1 job in life
should be to go inside,
find our true self, bring it
out and set it free. Much
of our life is lived in
bondage to the world,
family, work or the
different hungers that
enslave us and keep us
bound in the lower,
earthly nature.
It all comes down to the
quality of life and the
level of joy we feel.
How happy are you in
life? If the answer is
anything other than
"very," there is a missing
link. There is a much
better way to live than to
be hungry and unhappy.
It starts when the outer
ways no longer satisfy
our needs and we begin
the inner journey.
To find inner peace and
fulfillment we must
begin to follow our heart.

over life begins when we

Did the original plan rec-
ognize the extent of the
future development that
now comprises Savanna

Did the plan recognize the

Keeping mosquitoes away chemically, naturally Going to the Dentist is like...
Going to the Movies!


Baseball, apple pie and
mosquitoes; all these
things are synony-
mous with the American
way of life.
Since we spend more of
our free time relaxing
outdoors, these pesky
creatures can make life
extremely uncomfortable
and in some cases, danger-
ous.
Mosquitoes can be more
than just a menace; they can
carry diseases such as
malaria and West Nile virus,
just to name a few.
West Nile virus has been a
menace for the past few
years, and its presence has
been spreading yearly. As
you can see, controlling
rhosquitoes in your yard can
be beneficial foryour sanity
as well as your health.
Before we talk about ways'
to help control these pests,
here are a few mosquito
facts.
Mosquitoes have four
stages of development: egg,
larva, pupa and adult.
Their larva and pupa
stages are spent in water.
-When the adult mosqui-
tbes emerge, the first thing
they want is your blood.
Keep in mind that only the
female will bite. The blood
supplies the mosquito with
the protein needed to.

summer.
This year will probably be
a bad year for infestation
because of the heavy rains
we have had the past couple
of months.
There is plenty of standing
water for these critters to
breed in.
There are, however, many
steps you can take to control
these pesky critters.
First, walk around your
property and remove any

standing water.
If you have an ornamental
pond, stock it with fish.
If you have birdbaths and
fountains, change the water
twice a week to keep the
water from getting stagnant.
There are other steps you
can take to control infesta-
tion, such as spraying the
perimeter of your yard with
a designated mosquito
spray.
These sprays can be
purchased at most retail
garden centers and come in
sprayer containers that can
be attached to your hose.
Use and follow label direc-
tions carefully.
If you don't like to use
insecticides, there are a
number of natural ways to
make your outdoor activi-
ties more enjoyable.
One that works really well
is lining the perimeter of
your recreation area with
garden torches. Not only are
they functional, but they
also add a great atmosphere
to your evening entertain-
ing.
Another great idea is to use
a chimney. Lighting a fire is
not just for winter. The
smoke from a fire is a
natural deterrent to mosqui-
toes and it also adds a warm
feeling to your outdoor
palace.


There is yet another way to
deter the pesky critters. Line
your outdoor area with
citronella geranium plants.
These annuals, which can
grow to be as large as 2 feet,
have a distinctive citronella
scent. The scent is readily
released when you rub or
crush the leaves of the plant.
It has been said that the
plant can deter mosquitoes,
but I have not been able to
actually prove it. Since the
plants are attractive, it is
worth trying. Plant them in
full sun and in an area
where they will get good air
circulation. The plants
require a steady source of a
good fertilizer to keep the
leaves from turning yellow.
The plant can also be
grown indoors in a contain-
er providing you have a
good light source.
The plant, which is also
known as the "mosquito
plant," is in the geranium
family, as you will see by the
leaf structure.

and the

Sunrise

Theatre

John Wilkes, who was
recently, named chief
operating officer of the
Lyric Theatre in Stuart, has
also taken on the job of
consultant to the Sunrise
Theatre in Fort Pierce.
The new assignment
follows the resignation of
David Jenkins as executive
director of the Sunrise.
Mr. Wilkes, who was a
consultant to the Sunrise
during its restoration, sat
down with me recently to
discuss this latest chal-
lenge.
"While I'm looking at the
entire operation, the main
challenge is to put togeth-
er a season for 2007-2008
because there wasn't one
show booked," he said.

Toria Sommers

releases CD


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
You may know her as Jill
Erickson and you may
have seen her this past
season in the StarStruck
Performing Arts Center
presentation of "Pajama
Game."
Perhaps you've heard
her sing each week at'the
Momingside Church.
Now, under her stage
name of Toria Sommers,'
the Port St. Lucie resident
has released her first CD,
"Be Myself," and she spoke
recently about what her
career and her music.
S"I've been performing
since I was 5," she says.
"Singing was my thing. I
had visions of becoming a
star in New York, but I had
conservative parents who
felt I needed to get a job
first. I sought out some-
thing that was not a four-
year degree and 'dental
came Up. I performed in
college iat IRCC)Y during
my dental education."
At a college audition, she
needed an 'accompanist
with whom to rehearse. A


young man in the music
program, John Erickson,
offered to play for her; that
collaboration led to mar-
riage in 1989 and to
daughters Emily, 12, a stu-
dent at Lincoln Park Acad-
emy, and Olivia, 9, who
attends Fairlawn Elemen-
tary School in Fort Pierce.
The singer had per-
formed at Morningside
Church for years and. she
had many requests for a
CD.
"Initially, I thought it was
laughable," she, says. "I
think I have a unique
sound but I never thought,
people would want to lis-
ten to it at home. It took
two years of convincing. A
gentleman from the
church, who wanted to
remain anonymous,
approached and offered
the financial means t make
the CD and then Nashville
songwriter/producer Ken
Harrell, who is involved in
his own ministry, came to
sing. Our Praise Team
leader introduced us.

BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
When students from
the StarStruck Perform-
ing Arts Center take the
stage at the Lyric Theatre
on June 29, they will be
the first anywhere to per-
form in the school edi-
tion of the rock opera
"Rent."
Music Theatre Interna-
tional, or MTI, chose
StarStruck to debut the
school edition. Marty
Johnson, a representative
of iTheatrics, the educa-
tional programming wing
of MTI, was on hand for
the first rehearsal and
explained why StarStruck
received this special
honor.
"We saw StarStruck
perform at the 2007
Junior Theatre Festival
(in Atlanta)," he says.
"Not only were the kids
amazing performers, but
they were knowledgeable
and passionate about the
theater. When we are
looking for a pilot site to
work on new scripts, "we
want to work with groups
that have flexibility and
where the people in
charge and the students


are up to the challenge."
, "Rent," written by
Jonathan Larson and
loosely based on the
opera "La Boheme," tells
the story of struggling
artists in New York City in
the late 1980s and deals


with mature themes,
including homosexuality,
death, friendship, love
and sex.
Its 1996 debut was
given added poignancy
because Mr. Larson died
from an aortic aneurysm


one week before the
opening, at the age of 36.
Jennifer Jones, the
show's director, hopes to
remain true to the Mr.
Larson's themes.

"I also have to take a seri-
ous look at the financial
aspects of the operation
and increased earned rev-
enue and unearned rev-
enue that comes from
* donations, .gifts and grants.
We're looking for corporate
sponsorship and that could
include media sponsor-
ship., It's a great opportuni-
ty in the growing market of
Fort Pierce and the whole
area. We are inviting corpo-
rate sponsors to help fund a
show or shows."
Mr. Wilkes also empha-
sized the importance of
education and outreach to
the schools, including field
trips to the theater and spe-
cial performances for
school children.
"It's important to offer
this to the community," he
says. "It also helps build the
audiences of the future.
Perhaps if we have an act
that would be of interest,
we could hold them over to
do one or two shorter
school shows."
Also on tap is a gala that
will serve as a fundraiser
and a celebration of the
artists who will be perform-
ing at the Sunrise this year.
Mr. Wilkes hopes it will
become an annual event
that will help to underwrite
some of the programming.
He says that it will be up
to the City of Fort Pierce do
decide whether to hire a
permanent executive direc-
tor or look at a manage-
ment firm to run the the-
ater. For now, he's got
enough on his plate with
his two jobs.
"It's clear after two weeks
that we have to look at the
operations, policies and
procedures as it relates to
every aspect of the Sunrise
Theatre," he says.
And that's just his second

"The theme I am look-
ing to pull out is about
love; the love one has for
friends and for their art
and their passion," she
says.
"Jonathan Larson
wrote 'no day but today.'
It's so important to live
in the moment and not
waste time thinking
about the past or worry-
ing about the future. He
was all about living in
the moment. It -was a
time when AIDS meant
.imminent death and-he
knew that every day is a
gift."
Peter. Jones, musical
director for the produc-
tion, says that the show
connects with a younger
generation because.of its.
contemporary style and
themes.
"It ushers in a whole
new generation of
Broadway theatergoers
that otherwise wouldn't
be so excited by classical
Broadway," he says.,

Sommers
From page B 1
he came back a few months
later, I talked to him about
the details of producing a
CD. I realized he'd never
heard me sing, and I audi-
tioned for him in my car.
When the funds became
available, in April, 2006, I
called him, and byJuly, I was
in Nashville in a recording
studio."
Ken Harrell brought some
of his own songs and some
150 songs from other song-
writers.
"Most of the songs I was
pulled to are "been there,
done that," songs," she says.
"I've lived a few years, had
relationships, married, had
the babies. I like the songs
about woman coming ing into
herselfwho knows what she
wants. There's also a spiritu-
al background, with a faith-
based moral to most of the
songs.
"The title track, "Be
Myself," says 'I'm the only
one that can be myself; I
think I'm unique.' It's one of
the first songs I picked. God
created us individually to do
on this Earth what He would
have us do. People will love
you for who you are."
The songs also talk about
subjects not often discussed
in church, including adul-
tery, in the song "I Know
Better,". and about following
dreams, in the tune "Wish
List." The response to the
CD has been positive, and
Ms. Sommers has been to
Nashville to perform for
some showcases of new
singers. While she still works
as a dental hygienist in Stu-
art and has been known to
sing while cleaning teeth,
she. hopes to work with
bands and even tour.
Jennifer Jones, executive
director of StarStruck, has
worked with Ms. Sommers
in a variety, roles, and is
excited about her friend's
new venture, although she
has a bit of trouble getting
used to her stage name.
"Jill is an incredibly talent-
ed performer, a brilliant
comedienne with a fabu-
lous voice. MX fore importantr-
ly, she's got a~ warm heart
and she's a great friend."
Toria Sommers' CD, "Be

Follow the wires to hook, unhook computers


Over the last couple
of weeks it seems I
have helped more
people move their
computers than I've ever
seen.
Usually I get called to
help, because behind
most computers is a rat's
nest of wires.
Seriously, look behind
any computer and you
are bound to see a
massive jumble of wires
and cables. Looks pretty
intimidating, especially if
you don't know what's
what.
One way some people
approach it is to use little
numbered strips of
masking tape around
each wire. On the com-
puter, stick matching
number stickers next to


R


each plug.
This way, when you go
to plug all of the wires
back in, just match up
the cables with the
numbers.
Of course, you'd have to
number them before you
unplug all the wires.
Most of the time I tell
people they don't need
my help. Most of those
wires can only plug into
one socket so it's pretty
hard to hook it up wrong.
If you just take it cable
by cable, most of the
wires can just be plugged
back in to their socket.
You hardly even have to
know what wire's what.
Just match up the cable
plugs to the holes and
before you know it, 80
percent of the machine is
hooked up.
What about the other
20 percent? Those
remaining wires that will
fit into more than one
hole need a little more
attention.
The best way to handle
these cables is to follow
them to the other end
and see what's attached.
If the wire you are
following leads to a
speaker, then the end
that plugs into the
computer will need to
plug into an audio or
"speaker out" plug.
Examine only the plugs
on the computer that the
wire will fit into, and look
for a label or some
printing pressed into the
metal.
You should be able to
determine a microphone
in or "mic" jack and a
speaker output or "spk
out" jack.
USB connections, on
the other hand, are
interchangeable.


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This


Computers these days
will typically have two or
more rectangular USB
connections in the back,
front and even some-
times on the keyboard
itself.
Most of the time, USB
cables will work plugged
directly into any avail-
able USB slot.
If the wire you are
following is a phone type
and there are two possi-
ble plugs to it in, under-
stand that the phone line
goes from the wall to the
computer's "line in" jack.
Again, the jacks should
have some type of label
on them.
, Sometimes the jacks are
depicted with a little icon
of a phone for the phone
jack and a little square
that matches the shape
of a phone plug for the
line jack.
With some careful
inspection, you should
find that one jack is
labeled "line" (this one
goes from the computer
to the wall). The other
jack is there so you can
plug an extension phone
into the computer so you
can talk on that line.
If the cable that you are
following leads to your
keyboard, then find the


wire that comes from the
mouse as well.
The mouse and key-
board plugs often will be
identical. Examine them
carefully and you should
see a little mouse icon or
a little keyboard icon
embossed right on the
plug.
If you look closely at the
computer, you should
see matching
mouse/keyboard mark-
ings. Match up the plugs
and you're all set.
The temptation is to
get a bunch of wire-ties
and "clean up" this rat's
nest.
In theory, that seems
like a logical move. In
reality, it's usually an
exercise in frustration.
As soon as you tie all
those wires into a nice
clean bundle, Murphy's
Law kicks in and you'll
have to unplug and
remove some cable for
one reason or another.
That usually means
cutting each and. every
wire-tie and making a
mess of your nice bundle.
This is an immutable
law of computer science;
you can't beat it.
So, the next time you're
faced with dealing with
the wires behind your
machine, just remember
that they're not as con-
fusing as they look.
Just take it one wire at a
time and before you
know it, you'll be able to
unhook your computer
and hook it back up
without calling for help.
Just resist the urge to
bundle those wires up
and you'll be OK.

Sean McCarthy has
worked with computers
since 1978.

Delight your palate with cutlets, peppers


Hello, smart shop-
pers. Hope you
had a good week.
Father's Day was over-
shadowed by Hometown
News' fifth anniversary.
Nothing in this world is
more important than a
tribute to good fathers,
but business is business.
Today a simple tribute
to all the men out there
who are doing the right
thing, as my husband
did, and hopefully, the
sons we raised.
I must give you a
special poem I found
years ago that I've
framed and have on the
wall in the main bath-
room. It's signed anony-
mous, but I feel it was
written by a very special
man.
WOMAN
Was made from the rib
of man.
She was not created
from his head ... to top
him,
Nor from his feet... to be
stepped upon
She was made from his
side ... to be equal to him
From beneath his arm ...
to be protected by him:
Near his heart... to be

Grammy Guru
loved by him.
Women, I hope you
honored your husband,
father and the father of
your children even
though he may not have
honored you on your day.
Teach him. A belated
happy Father's Day to all
you wonderful, responsi-
ble men out there. We
need more of you.

Let's spice up life
with peppers
What is the one thing
you can make that would
dress up any simple
dinner?


Gregory Fasula Attorney
Ed Wood Reverse Mortgages


Fried peppers!
Loaded with fiber,
nutrition and vitamins,
fried, sweet peppers in
any color complete a
delicious dinner.
We're about to cele-
brate ,the Fourth of July.
Plan to fry up a huge
batch of peppers. They
freeze great. Grill some
sausages, chicken or any
kind of meat. Top your
choice with peppers.
Deliciously
A humble pork chop or
steak becomes a spectac-
ular dinner with the
addition of peppers.
When I was a child,
mom would occasionally
make Italian-style fried
chicken cutlets, served
with a squeeze of lemon
and a side of this won-
derful vegetable.
I prefer green or red
peppers for the price and
their vitamin content.
Did you know that a red
bell pepper has twice the
amount of Vitamin C as
an orange?
My favorite pepper is
the Cubanelle; a long
light green or red, sweet
pepper. When I was a kid
I remember them being
called Italianelle.


Know how to tell the
difference between a
sweet or hot pepper?
Sweet peppers usually
have rounded bumpy
ends, while hot peppers
have pointy ones.
Check out produce
stores or stands for the
best price.
Sweet, roasted red
peppers will make an
ordinary sandwich a
gourmet's delight.-
Forget the mayo or
mustard; drizzle lightly
with extra virgin olive oil.
Enjoy. See you next
week.

FRIED PEPPERS
Serves four or more
Three large bell pep
pers,
any color, or four to six
Cubanelle peppers
2 tablespoons extra
virgin olive oil
Salt, pepper and
paprika
Three or four large'
cloves garlic, peeled
and cut up
Thinly sliced onions

For bell peppers, wash
and cut in large strips,
discarding the stem and
seeds. Dry on paper
towels. When using
Cubanelle peppers, try
cooking them whole.
Heat oil in skillet. Fry
peppers slowly over
medium-low heat, lightly
browning on all sides.
Keep a close eye they
can burn in a flash.
When peppers are half
* cooked, add onions,
garlic and sprinkle with
salt, pepper and paprika.
*Cook, turning occasion-
ally until tender.
Serve warm or cold.

ROASTED RED
BELL PEPPERS
Place washed peppers
in pan on lower rack of
oven. Broil until the skin
turns almost black,
turning until entire
pepper is roasted.
Place peppers in a

When cool enough to
handle peel, seed and
tear into large segments.

RELIGION


Remember that your value and worth comes from God


Some people think
they must meet
certain standards to
have value and worth as an
individual.
We try to dress in a
certain way, look just right,
and say all the right things
to be accepted by our
peers.
We base our values and
worth on our personal
success, status, beauty,
wealth and the approval of
others.
To meet these com-,
pelling needs, we drive
ourselves to achieve, and


Kings
Port


do virtually anything to
make people happy with
us.
People with this mindset
base their value and worth
upon their performance
and appearance. The
consequences of this
pattern of thinking are
many. For instance, fear of
failure, perfectionism, and
manipulation of others in
order to achieve success.
Our business associates,
friends and family, will not
tolerate this manipulation
forever.
Before the light comes
on, and we begin to

understand the destruc-
tiveness of our ways, all is
lost.
Those who are closest to
us abandon us, and we are
passed over for that
promotion or fired.
When others approve of
us, it's great. When we
dress and look nice, that's
a plus. But we must not
base our value and worth
upon the approval of
others.
Roman 5:1 says, "There-
fore being justified by
faith, we have peace with
God, through our Lord
Jesus Christ."
When we receive Christ,
we are justified. As we
confess and repent of our
sins daily, we stay in a
close relationship with
God.
Because of justification,
we are fully pleasing to
God. Our value and worth,
comes from knowing that
we are in right standing
with our Heavenly Father.
Without knowing of
God's approval of us, we
seek the approval of others
and become addicted to it.
We reason, "I must be
approved by certain others
to feel good about myself."
This approval addiction
results in the fear of
rejection, and the attempt
to please others at any
cost! We become overly
sensitive to criticism. We
often withdraw from

others to avoid disap-
proval.
When we don't interact
with others with confi-
dence, we may walk right
by that open door that
leads to our success.
Colossians 1:21-22
explains that we were once
far away from God. We
were separated from him
because of our rebellious
thoughts and actions. But
now he has brought us
back to him, as a friend,
through the redemptive
work of Christ on.the
cross.
Christ'has reconciled us
to God. We are now
forgiven and brought into
an intimate relationship
with God. Reconciliation
means that we are totally
accepted by God.
Another misconception
we have is this: Those who
fail, including ourselves,


deserved to be punished.
We play the blame game,
we blame others when .
they fail, and it affects us.
We decide that they must
be punished. We may .
punish others by with-,
drawing recognition, and
not speaking to them in
the hallway, or in the mall.
We also find ways to
punish ourselves when we,
fail.
I John 4:9-11 explains
that God loved us so much
that he sent his son, to
bring us eternal life
through the propitiation
that he provided on the
cross.
Propitiation means that
by his death on the cross, ,
Christ satisfied God
displeasure with our sinful
nature. Christ took all of
humanity's punishment
on the cross.
Due to our imperfec-
tions, as ancestors of
Adam, we will not. always
succeed in every endeav-
or..
Our value and worth
does not come from our
record of failure and
success! It comes from the
fact that through Christ,
we are deeply'loved by
God, even when we, or.
others, fail.
Lastly, we convince
ourselves that we are who
we are, and we cannot
change! We say, "I am
hopeless, I cannot recover


from this addiction." We
say, "I cannot break this
harmful habit, I just can't
quit smoking,"
2 Corinthians 5:17 says,
"Therefore if any man be
in Christ, he is a new
creature, old things are
passed away, behold all
things become new!" This
is regeneration.
When you become a
Christian, you become a
totally new person, it is
not a makeover, but a new
life has begun.
Because you are a new
person, you have the
'ability to leave the old
destructive habits behind
with God's help.
Please contact me with
prayer requests, com-
ments and questions.

Former Fort Pierce Central


star charged in robbery


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
Former Fort Pierce Cen-
tral High School football
and basketball standout
DeMario Merricks was
arrested on June 13 and
charged with armed rob-
bery, armed burglary, car-
rying a concealed firearm,
possession of a firearm
and grand theft with a
firearm.
Merricks; 19, along with
fellow Fort Pierce residents
Ronnie White, 19, Rodney.
White, 17, and Derrick
Buckins, 19, were taken in
by Port St. Lucie Police
after the four teenagers
allegedly robbed a group
of people outside the
Cumberland Farms in the
1500 block of Floresta
Drive in Port St. Lucie.
According to the arrest


report, a couple was
approached by a black
male wearing a black
hooded sweatshirt and a
blue bandana after leaving
the store on the way back
to their car.
The man wearing the
bandana pointed a silver
handgun at one of the cus-
tomers and demanded
money. When told there
was no money to give, the
man searched the cus-
tomer, finding only a pock-
et knife. He then hit the
customer on the head with
the butt of his gun, and
took the knife, the police
report stated.
At this point, two other
men, both with handguns


and driving a sliver
Chevrolet Malibu, exited
their car and searched the
couple's car for more
money.
After searching the car,
the men got back in the
Malibu and drove away.
They were later stopped
by police and arrested.
While Rodney White was
later identified as the man
who struck the customer
in the head, the roles of the
other three teenagers were
unspecified by police.
Merricks was a Florida
Sports Writers Association
all-state first team selec-
tion in 2006 as a senior.

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers. -

. Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".


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


ur

*Virtually every car dealer of educ
in Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a sophistic
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500 much higi
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 riot make it
correct.


S
is


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


tion ana Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
nation are I think of myself as the new
"sheriff" that has come to
ter 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.
Sincerely,

Gabbard pitching his way to the top


Photo by Louriann Mardo-Zayat
Former Indian River Community College pitcher Kason
Gabbard is currently one of the top pitchers for the Paw-
tucket Red Sox, the Triple-A affiliate for the Boston Red
Sox. In May, Gabbard made his fifth career start for
Boston, allowing two runs on six hits while striking out
seven over five innings, to earn the win.








335-126
1500 S Lennrd Rd.Port t. uie 45


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
Seven years ago Kason
Gabbard regularly took the
mound for Indian River
Community College in, Fort
Pierce. On May 20 he took
the mound at Fenway Park
for the Boston Red Sox.
The Red Sox called up the
tall southpaw from Triple-A
Pawtucket to help them out
of a bind this spring when a
makeup game was thrown
in to the schedule for the
first act of a day-night dou-
ble header against the
Braves. With injuries to the
team's pitching staff, they
needed a pinch start and
turned to one of their up-
and-coming young guns.
Gabbard did the job, earn-
ing the win after giving up
two runs on six hits and
striking out seven over five
innings of work.
."I don't know how to
explain it. It's so alive. The
crowd is unbelievable," Gab-
bard said of pitching in
Boston. "Your confidence
level just goes up."
But after leaving the
mound to a standing ova-
tion from Red Sox .Nation,
Gabbard was sent back
down before the second
game of the twin bill.
But that's OK with him. He


knows it won't be his last
time in the show, mostly
because it wasn't his first
either.
The Vero Beach resident
saw his first Major League
action in 2006. That season
he made seven appearances
for the Red Sox, four starts,
going 1-3 with a 3.51 ERA. It
was a crazy year for Gab-
bard, but nothing that he'
didn't expect in his first time
with the big league club.
"It was one of those things
where I went up, then was
sent .down. I thought I was
going to be traded at one
point too. Seattle was inter-
ested. But then they took me
aside and told me I was
alright," said Gabbard,
whose Uncle is Vero Beach,
city manger Jim Gabbard..
"They kind of send you
mixed signals sometimes."
Considering that Gabbard
has been a member of the
Red Sox organization since
2001, it's likely he' won't be
moving anywhere soon.
Selected in the 29th round
of the Major League draft in
2000 by Boston as a high
school senior from Royal
Palm Beach. High School,
Gabbard played one year at
IRCC before moving on to
the minor leagues. In the last
six years he has established


himself as one of the bright
prospects within the organi-
zation and a member of a
strong young pitching staff
that includes Jon: Lester,
David Pauley and current
Sox closer Jonathan Papel-
bon.
"It's great. They always
traded away our top
prospects, but now they've
been sticking with them,"
said Gabbard. "There are
maybe five guys on (Paw-
tucket) without big league
experience."
This year Gabbard is 6-2
'for Pawtucket and one of the
team's ace pitchers. Former
IRCC head coach Mike'
Easom isn't .surprised at all
when he hears about Gab-
bard's success. He remem-
bers the lanky lefty as a fierce
competitor who always
wanted to win.
"He's a throwback guy.
He's probably one of the top
five players I coached in 31
years at IRCC," said Easom
who now coaches at John
Carroll High School. "If we
had more guys like him I'd
probably still be coaching
(at IRCC)."
When he first came to Fort
Pierce, Gabbard almost
exclusively relied on his fast-
ball and curve. But it was
Easom who taught the


youngster how to throw a
changeup and other off-
speed pitches, which made
Gabbard a more complete
pitcher.
"(Mike) Easom was one of
the best coaches I ever had,"
said Gabbard.
Being able to play with
veterans like Sox. catcher
Jason Varitek and pitcher
Curt Schilling is also some-
thing that Gabbard relishes;
After the initial rookie haz-
ing in his first few starts, he
just feels like one of the guys
when he goes up to the big-
league club.
"I've been around them
now. The first week you got
to earn it,!' said Gabbard.
"Now they just tell me, 'just
do what you've been doing
in minors. Don't. change
anything 'cause you doi't
need to.'"
Gabbard hopes to make a
few more starts for Boston
this season, and possibly
join the team for a post-sea-
son run. But right now he is
just happy to play whatever
role the organization wants
him to, even if that is in the
minor leagues.
"'It's awesome,'! said Galb-
bard. "This is what you play
for. You want to play for the
best team and stay there and
win aWorld Series."


Pedro's rehab in Port St. Lucie is going well


Mets ace eyeing
late season
return to NY

BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
New York Mets ace
Pedro Martinez took a big
step in his quest to return
from shoulder surgery


~rni~


this past off-season.
Martinez is now work-
ing out at the Mets' minor
league training facility at
Tradition Field in Port St.
Lucie.
On June 5 Martinez
took his first step back
onto a pitcher's mound,
throwing 31 pitches to
Brooklyn Cyclones catch-
er Danny Cummins and
was his usual playful self,


pointing to cameras and
joking with reporters.
Martinez was careful to
keep the velocity low on
all his throws, keeping
within the guidelines set
by coach Randy Nie-
mann.


More


importantly


though, he was just
happy throwing from the
rubber again.
"Without a doubt I


could have thrown
more," Martinez .said'.
"But we're not'looking to
get me hurt, we're look-
ing to get me healthy and
we first get comfortable
with the mound and my
legs and being out there
again."
: Martinez took two days
off before resuming

Georgia beach resort has quite a bit to offer golfers


One of the things thai
I love about sum-
mer is taking the
family on long weekends
away from home.
Being the golf nut that I
am; wherever we go must
have golf.
My family, being the way
they are, demands that
wherever we go there
must be a plethora of
amenities.
Just a week ago, I had to
drive to Georgia's Golden
Isles to pick up my son.
Having neverbeen to the
area for more than a.
moment to get fuel, I had
no idea what to expect or
what I would find.
What I found was that
when you cross an old
dance club with a luxury
hotel on the beach and a
fantastic golf course, youu
get the King and Prince
Beach and Golf Resort on
St. Simon's Island, Ga.
I had hitthe jackpot!
Built in 1935 by a pair of


t men who.decided they
had grown tired of the old
dance club on Georgia's
Golden Isle, they built and
opened their own.
King George II and
Prince Charles Edward
Stewart were known as the
"king" and pPrince" of the
dance community.
Unfortunately, they,
made a few enemies when
they struck out on their
own.
The problem with
breaking ties in those days
was that people held
grudges.
The new dance club was
burned down three times
before the pair either ,
brought in some "insur-
ance" or the people.
responsible grew bored of
arson or simply ran out of
matches.
Today, the King and
Prince is a beautiful,
historic seaside retreat,
where.guests can easily
find luxury, relaxation,
inspiration and recreation.

JAMES STAMMER
Golf columnist

After a multi-million
dollar renovation, the
resort features 186 guest
rooms, including two- and
three-bedroom villas and
six specialty suites.
While our family enjoyed
a three-bedroom villa with
an ocean view, the Hamp-
ton House is possibly the
most perfect accommoda-
tion for a golf group,
whether big or small.:With
five bedrooms, just as:
many bathrooms, a pair of
kitchens, a large lawn and
a location set off from the


Dance team tryouts
to be held

Auditions for Legacy
Dance Team for the 2007-
2008 season will be held
June 23 and July 21 at
Kaizen Karate in Lakeside
Center in Port St. Lucie.
Both auditions will be held


YOu Even Have the Freedom

to Change Your Mind.

Moving to a retirement community is a big decision.
Sometimes it's a decision you-may second-guess,
That's why we offer a 60-day, money-back guarantee.

But with the freedom to do what you want, and all
our activities and amenities, we're pretty sure you'll
love living here. Enough to give you 60 days to
change your mind. Call for details. "


rest of the resort's guests,
it's just the place for a
sometimes rowdy golf
group to crash and play.
Speaking of playing,
while half my family
enjoyed the pool and the
miles of beach, my son
and I headed off to the
Hampton Club Golf
Course to test our game in
a setting that I hardly ever
see.
Hampton Club, about 20
minutes or so from the
resort, is a delightful
change from my usual
course fare in south
Florida.
The word of the day at
the Hampton Club was
"trees," and plenty of
them.
I have never in my life
seen so many beautiful
oaks lining the fairways.
The course features a
wonderful variety of holes.
,In fact, the middle of the
back nine winds out
through the marsh flats
providing a welcome
contrast to the tree-lined
fairways on most;of the
other holes.


from 1:30 p.m.- 6 p.m.
Legacy Dance team is
looking for high, energy
female and male dancers
between the ages of 11 and
18-years-oldthat love to
perform and compete.
Dance experience is a plus
but not required. Dancers
will be taught a Legacy
dance combination- that
they will be performing
that day.
There is no need to bring
an audition dance piece.
Parents will need to sign
a permission form for
dancers to be able to audi-
tion. Parents can come on
the audition day or contact
director Dawn Nabors at
561-965-2119 or 561-329-
6289 to receive one in the
mail. '
Dancers who make the
team will have to attend a
week of mandatory team


With four sets of tees, the
course can play as long as
6,465 yards to as short as
5,233 yards.
There is bound to be a
set of tees to fit every -
golfer no matter the ability
or challenge desired.
There are long and short
par-3s, a devilish, yet
reachable-in-two par 5,
and smooth rolling greens.
I usually can name my
favorite hole after playing
a course for the first time.
This was not the case at
the Hampton Club.
I found them all to have.
their own charm and each
to be so different from the
rest that I will not play
favorites.
On our journey around
the course, we saw plenty
of wildlife. We saw several
species of birds, watched
an alligator enjoy a fish
lunch and rabbits tasting,
the clover.
We didn't get to put any
birds down on the score-
card, but that hardly took
away from a very enjoy-
able and relaxing round of
golf.


camp on July 30 thru Aug. 3
where dancers will learn
their first routine and
bond as a team.

Ultimate Frisbee hits
the Treasure Coast

Ever hear about people
playing ultimate Frisbee,


After golf, my family
went on a short bicycle
ride to the historic down-
town area to take in the
centuries-old, working
lighthouse and more.
Here we found loads of
shops and restaurants to
fill our day and our bellies.
Just up the road from the
resort is Fort Frederica
National Monument,
where in 1736 Gen. James
Oglethorpe established
Georgia's first military
outpost. Nearby is Christ
Church, built in 1886 and
the spot where John
Wesley, the father of
Methodism, first preached
in America.

Although both Martinez
and Niemann were vague
as to when Martinez
would return to the Mets,
it is anticipated that he
could be back by August.
"At this state he looks
very good. This is the
beginning, arid we're
going to move forward


from here," said Nie-
mann. "As far a were con-
cerned he's not behind,,he
not ahead, he's just where,
he supposed to be."
,As for rushing his rehab
to get back sooner than
expected, Martinez made
'it clear that he would do
no such thing. Especially
since the Mets are play-


ing well without him in
the rotation.
"I think the team's suc-
cess makes me take it easi-
er. It gives me the time to
take my time the way they
want me to," he said. "The
other day I got to spend the
day with the team and they
didn't want me to leave.
They want me healthy."
