PSL still among fastest

growing cities in USA


BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE -
Despite the slowdown, in
housing, last year was still a
banner year for people
moving to Port St. Lucie.
According to figures
released by the U.S. Census
Bureau, Port St. Lucie was
the third-fastest growing
.city in the United States.
Taking over the first-place
spot from Elk Grove, Calif.,
was North Las Vegas, Nev.
The rankings were based
on population growth
between July 2005 and July
2006.
"The city is still afford-
able," said Vice Mayor Jack
Kelly. "For the money, we
still are the best city to live
in."
He added that despite
the growth, Port St. Lucie is
still a safe place to live, and
with all of the projects cur-
rently in the works, there is
more for residents to enjoy.
More big-named com-
mercial development is
occurring: in Tradition, a
planned community west
of.Interstate 95. Stores such
as Target, Sports Authority
and Babies R Us will be


opening in the next few
months. An outlet and
regional malls are also
planned for western Port
St. Lucie. Mr. Kelly said this
is proof Port St. Lucie is a
great place to live.
"The commercial has
found us," he said.
The city is currently con-
structing a civic center in
the planned downtown
area.in.the east.
The city grew by nearly
13,000 residents between
July 2005 and July 2006. At
the end of that period,
there were 143,868 ,resi-
dents. The current popula-
tion is estimated at 157,000
people.
Don Santos, owner: of
Santos Construction and
former president of the
Treasure Coast Builders
Association, said he was
not surprised by the city's
ranking.
"Starting in 2003 and
through the beginning of
2006, we did see some truly
extraordinary growth," Mr.
Santos said. "In 2006, we
were still building and
moving people in from
sales in 2005. I will not be

driving a school bus," said
Donald Carter, transporta-
tion coordinator for the St.
Lucie County School Dis-
trict. "We always make a
push to have drivers
because we never know
what will happen during
the summer."
Many schools are not
within walking distance
for families in the county,
so school buses fill a need.
To transport the bus-rid-
ers, St. Lucie County needs
reliable people with clean
backgrounds.

insurance

rate hikes
BY MATT DONEGAN
Staff writer
Drunk driving accidents
will cost more than ever
starting later this year.
That's when a law requir-
ing increased insurance
goes into effect for those
who plead or are found
guilty of causing death,
injury or property damage
while driving under the
influence.
Passed during the state
Legislature's regular ses-
sion, House Bill 359 man-
dates drivers convicted of
a DUI that causes injury or
death to another person
after Oct. 1 to purchase
$100,000 of insurance cov-
erage. If there are two or
more people injured or
killed, the required insur-
ance coverage rises to
$300,000. For accidents
involving property dam-
age, a $50,000 policy will
be required.
State Rep. Rick Krise-
man, D-Pinellas, spon-
sored the bill. As an attor-

Recent raindoes little to


lessen drought conditions

But some areas might see restrictions lifted for now


BY RITA HART
Staff writer
Despite recent heavy
rains, the water levels
of Lake Okeechobee
remain at historic lows,
with the current level
approximately 4 feet
below average for this
time of year.
Martin and St. Lucie
counties are in the
upper East Coast of the
South Florida Water
Management District's
service area.
Lake Okeechobee is a
main water source for
parts of Martin and St.
Lucie counties. The
lake is 730 square
miles, with a drainage
basin covering more
than 4,600 square
miles, and is the sec-
ond-largest freshwater
lake in the United
States.
The record low level
for the rake was set in
2001, when the level
dropped to P.97 feet.


On July 6, the level was
8.92 feet.
:Linette Trabulsy is
the community out-
reach director for the
Martin and St. Lucie
Service Center, a divi-
sion of the South Water
Management District.
Mrs. Trabulsy said as of
July 6, the year-to-date
rainfall for the upper
East Coast region is
7.48. inches, which is
.79 inches above aver-
age for this time of,
year.
"Our governing board
members will meet on
July 11, where a presen-
tation on current
drought conditions will
be provided, said Mrs.
Trabulsy.
"Included in the
presentation will be up
to date information on
the indicators used in
determining water
restrictions. It is possi-
ble that areas that have
been receiving sub-
stantial rain may see a


temporary easing of
water restrictions. The
board is also consider-
ing water conservation
measures on a year-
round basis. If
approved, it could go
into effect as early as
September," she said.
The SFWMD recently
released updated infor-
mation regarding the
current drought in a
question and answer
format.
Q: How can you still
claim there's a drought
when my lawn is green
and it's raining every
day?
A: Central and north-
ern portions of the
SFWMD, which
includes areas north of
Lake Okeechobee,
remain critically dry, as
wet season rains have
been highly localized
over much of the south-
ern third of the district.

Drought
From page Al
for example, Lake Okee-
chobee, a primary back-
up water supply to five
million south Floridians
during the dry season,
received less than five
inches of rain, while por-
tions of Miami-Dade and
Broward counties
received more than 12
inches over the same
period. In Central Flori-
da, this is still a drought.
Q: When will the Dis-
trict lift the restrictions?
A: It depends on rain-
fall, Lake Okeechobee,
water levels in the
regional system and
other factors.
Because this water
shortage is the most
severe and widespread
since the 1930s, weeks or
even months of constant
rainfall will be needed.
The district will contin-
ue to monitor conditions
daily, and when they
improve, the SFWMD
Governing Board will
make the decision to
modify restrictions.
The water shortage will
end only when enough
rainfall soaks into our
underground supplies
and raises the level of
Lake Okeechobee.
One indicator of ade-
quate water supply is a
water elevation of 14 feet
in Lake Okeechobee, and
computer modeling cur-
rently suggests there is
only a 10 percent chance
the lake level will climb
to this elevation by the
end of the current wet
season.
Q: Why are lower Lake
Okeechobee levels a con-
cern?
A: It is a constant and
delicate balance: water
supply for people and the
needs of the environ-
ment.
Low water levels do
benefit the lake ecosys-
tem; for example, sub-
merged aquatic vegeta-
tion receives more
sunlight and thus tends
to thrive, rejuvenating


fish and wildlife habitats
and improving the ecolo-
gy of the lake.
Habitat recovery efforts
are underway to remove
harmful muck layers
from the exposed
lakebed. However, water
levels that are too low
can be detrimental and
cause unwanted drying
of critical areas.
(Note: Muck recently
removed from Lake
Okeechobee was found
to have pesticides and
other chemicals, as well
as elevated levels of
arsenic. The SFWMD is
currently evaluating how
and where the muck will
be disposed.)
Q: What will it take for
Lake Okeechobee's water
levels to rise again?
A: The water level in
Lake Okeechobee
remains extremely low
for this time of year, and
it will take above average
rainfall on and directly
to the north of the lake -
to replenish the lake to
normal levels.
SFWMD meteorologists
anticipate that it may be
more than a month
before flows into Lake
Okeechobee from the
Kissimmee Watershed
are reestablished, No
prediction can be made
at this time as to precise-
ly when the lake's water
levels will return to their
normal elevations.
Q: What is the mini-
mum water level Lake
Okeechobee must reach
before we can end water
restrictions?
A: That is hard to tell. A
variety of factors, not just
the lake level, will be
used to determine modi-
fications to current water
restrictions; these
include rainfall, ground-
water levels, other sur-
face water levels, soil
moisture levels and salin-
ity levels in coastal well
fields.
Water levels, in Lake
Okeechobee are approxi-
mately four feet below
their historic average for
this time of year. The lev-
els will need to rise
appreciably before any
end to water restrictions
can be declared.
Q: Why did you drain
the lake last year?
A: The Army Corps of
Engineers, which is
responsible for managing
water levels in the lake,
relies on the best, most
current information
available to guide water
management decisions;
this includes long-term
weather predictions from
the National Weather
Service and others.
Water discharges were
made from Lake Okee-
chobee during the sum-
mer of 2006, in anticipa-
tion of what was
expected to be a very
active hurricane season
and in accordance with a
complex regulation
schedule, which helps
direct water manage-
ment decisions at specif-
ic water elevations and
times of year. These
resulted in a water level

County school grades released by state


Despite two F's,
a majority
maintain or
improve marks
BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
It was a mixed message
for the St. Lucie County
School District last month
when the state released
school grades.
Twenty-one schools in


the county maintained or
improved their grades,
while 11 schools saw their
grade drop. Two schools
opened during the 2006-
2007 year and did not
have a previous grade.
"We are pleased with the
learning gains that our
students and teachers
have worked so hard to
achieve," said Michael
Lannon, superintendent
of the St. Lucie County
School District. "We know
we still have significant


challenges, and the 20-
point targeted improve-
ment plan implemented
this year is positioned to
meet those challenges."
I The 20-point plan was
created to improve
schools in the district with
a high number of children
living in poverty. More.
than 22,500 out of nearly
40,000 students live in
put [ti,. and those are the
students that need the
most help at school.
Because of the new


attendance zones, many
of those children are in
schools in northern St.
Lucie County.
"Children of poverty
most often come to school
with the greatest needs
and deficits," Mr. Lannon
said. "In America, most
children in poverty are
children of color, there-
fore, as more parents
choose to have their chil-
dren closer to home, they

Police investigate rash
of stolen pickup trucks
The Port St. Lucie Police Department is investigat-
ing the thefts of pickup trucks in the city.
Since May 9, eight trucks have been reported stolen
from the central area of Port St. Lucie. Investigators
believe the trucks are being targeted for their high-
end parts, according to police spokesman Officer
Robert Vega.
Police would not comment on what specific parts
on the trucks are targeted since the incidents are still
under investigation, Officer Vega said.
The suspect or suspects are punching out the door
lock and steering column to steal the vehicles. Investi-
gators believe it is the same person or people involved
in all of the thefts.
Two of the'stolen trucks have been recovered out-
side of St. Lucie County.
Police ask that anyone with information about the
thefts should contact the Port St. Lucie Police Depart-
ment at (772) 871-5001, or Treasure Coast CrimeStop-
pers at (800) 273-TIPS.
Board aims for no
model homes on roadway
The Port St. Lucie Planning and Zoning Board voted
unanimously on a recommendation last week to ban
model homes along Becker Road.
The city is currently working to widen Becker Road
and the Planning and Zoning Board said model
homes would slow traffic along the road.
The recommendation will go to the City Council,.
who will discuss the issue at a future meeting.

Gas leak temporarily closes U.S. 1
A ruptured liquefied propane gas line closed three
miles of U.S. 1 in north Port St. Lucie last week.
Deputies with the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office
closed the road after a construction crew ruptured the
line at 6:45 p.m. on July 3, between Rio Mar Drive and
Kitterman Road.
The roadway re-opened about two hours later.
".The rupture was discovered around 6:45 p.m., and
there was a brief evacuation of businesses in that
area," Sheriff Ken Mascara said. "Once it was clear
there was no danger, people were able to return to
their businesses."
Woman charged with money laundering
A Port St. Lucie woman was arrested last week and
charged with three felonies for allegedly stealing
money from several businesses.
Caprona Denice Lee, 40, of 5883 N.W. Cincy Court,
Port St. Lucie, was arrested June 30, and charged with
money laundering, organized fraud and first-degree
grand theft.
According to the arrest report by the St. Lucie Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office, Ms. Lee stole money from three
businesses in St. Lucie County that are owned by her

Platinum
The platinum group met-
als comprise six closely
related metals: Platinum,
Palladium, Rhodium,
Ruthenium, Iridium and
Osmium.
Platinum (symbol PI) was
accepted as a precious
metal only after the sec-
ond half of 19th century
and has a deep luster and
a rich, white color. It is rarer
and heavier than all pre-
cious metals and consid-
ered to be more valuable
than gold.
Platinum is often used to
set the most valuable
gems to produce the
finest jewelry,
Platinum holds gem-
stones most securely,
because its strength and
neutral color enhances
the brilliance and depth
of diamonds and precious
stones. Because of its den-
sity and weight, you can
feel the difference
between platinum and
other precious metals.
There areno karat marks
to identify platinum.
In the United States plat-
inum is usually marked: PT
or PLAT, In Europe, plat-
inum is identified by the
following 'marks: 950 or
PT950. Since platinum is
the purest, metal it rarely
causes an allergic reac-
tion. There is an increased
interest in platinum jewelry
both in the US and
abroad.

of different things, as well,
including the implemen-

the students motivated to

"We had an exceptional-

VIEWPOINT


FRIDAY, JULY 13, 2007 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM


Got something to say?

Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at

(866) 465-5504
or e-mail news@hometownnewsoLcom.
Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous
statements. Statements of fact will be checked for
accuracy.


A couple of things to say

I have a couple of rants.
One is about people who walk their dogs, and allow
them to walk off the leash, and go to the bathroom in
your yards. That's lack of respect.
Honestly, there is no need for that. They should walk
them. in their own yards.
It doesn't matter if it is outside our fence; we still have
to maintain the yard.
Even if they clean up the poop, there are still pieces left
behind, and that is nasty.
The other is that I think the school board should be
back to elected positions here in Indian River County,
the way it was until the sixty, when they did a special ref-
erendum to have it so that the school board superin-
tendent could be appointed by the board members.
I think the monkey should come off the back of the
school board members, and be put back onto the citi-
zens of Indian River County. Let them vote for whomev-
er they want, and then if they get somebody in there that
is not what they should be, it is our fault.
That means that the person in there won't be rubber
stamped with different issues, and also it means that
maybe they will be in for our benefit.

Are property taxes equitable?

Attention Jeff Furst, Property Appraiser of St. Lucie
County.
How is it that Tiger Woods' property in Martin County
appraised at $2,696,800 paid only $16,443 in property
taxes in 2006?
In St. Lucie County, a home appraised at this amount
would be taxed more than twice that amount.
Maybe we all should become multi-million dollar pro-
golfers, and move to Martin County.
Or maybe, Mr.Furst could save us hundreds, and hun-
dreds of dollars in taxes on our homes here in St. Lucie
County.
Are multi-million dollar people of fame given special
consideration in their property taxes, 'or is Martin Coun-
ty more fair when assessing/taxing people's homes?
One wonders for how much the Woods' home was
insured. Perhaps the figures were wrong in the article
written about the fire in Tiger Woods beach house.

Post office problems

Will someone, somewhere, do something now about
the St. Lucie West post office?
Year after year the lines are terrible. I was in there the
day after the holiday, and I had to wait over 45 minutes.
There were upwards of 25 people in line. By the time I
left, the line was out to the door.
When asked what was the problem, one clerk said that
the other clerk's just call in sick.
Why are people allowed to call in sick the day after a
holiday when they know the post office is going to be
busy?
One clerk had'to take about 15 to 20 minutes for a
business customer who had three huge boxes of busi-
ness mail, people had to pick up mail, children were cry-
ing.
My neighbor said thaf the lines were' double line last
week up to the boxes.
People came in, and they just left because they could-
n't wait.
Why are American taxpayers subjected to this type of
abuse day after day, year after year?
The floors are dirty, the front of the counters are dirty,
and they hadn't been washed.
There is simply no excuse for this,
Someone, somewhere, please help.

What a waste

Talk about waste. School resource officers are nothing
more than glorified school crossing guards.


The Lennard Road project

I attended the meeting of the Lennard Road exten-
sion road expansion project on June 28. The turnout
was phenomenal from Savanna Club community.
As a local resident, living just off Lennard Road, I
went in support of the extension to be used as an
alternate for U.S. 1.
I cheered several times when the facilitators were

"Copyrighted Material

I did my homework, and found out that in St. Lucie
County, their salaries range from $45,000 to $70,000 a
year.
It is a disgrace that we, as taxpayers, should have to pay
for this eight or nine month school year, while these guys
have three months of vacation time.
The taxpayers pay for their vacation time.
This is truly a waste.

Response from the St. Lucie County
Sheriff's Office'

Your ranter is not correctly stating the salary range for
St. Lucie County deputy sheriffs, some of whom are
School Resource Officers.
The top figure of $47,274 for a 12-year deputy could be
higher based on a 2 percent "step" increase.
Please keep this in mind: School Resource Officers
consist of St. Lucie County deputy sheriffs, and Port St.
Lucie police officers.

MarkWeinberg
Public Information Officer
St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office

Response from the Port St. Lucie
Police Department

To say school resource officers are glorified crossing
guards is a,slap in the face to every teaching and law
enforcement professional in the state.
The days of "Leave it to Beaver" attending Grant ele-
mentary school, and seeing the principal when you were
bad are over.
Remember Columbine? A pristine suburb in Littleton,
Colo. becomes the scene of an American tragedy.
How about the Virginia Tech massacre?
Oh, but that only happens at colleges and high
schools?
Ask the people in Amish country about the heinous
killings of six youngsters at a schoolhouse in Pennsylva-
nia.
How much is a young child's life worth?
In today's world, kids are being exposed to everything
from illicit drugs, gang initiations, sexual predators and
routine violence more than any time in our modern soci-
ety ever experienced.
At the same time these young people are supposed to
avoid the distractions of those handful of distractions
and focus on their Florida Comprehensive Assessment
Test scores.
Right now if you say anything negative about taxes and
expenditures, you are likely to get a nod of approval from
someone who is listening.
The rhetoric on taxes cannot, and should not, be not
be about "What's in it for me," or how can I get your vote,
but rather "XYhat's the right thing to do for our kids and
my community."

John M. Skinner
Chief of Police
Port St. Lucie


Letters

explaining the pros and cons for the project.
However, by 9 p.m., upon listening to the Savanna club
property owners, I totally reversed my views and sat
firmly against the project based on homeowner com-
ments.
It is unfortunate that the people.of Savanna Club were
misinformed about the impending road coming
through. I am certain that some would not have pur-
chased had they known. For the county to cut right
through is appalling, and downright heartless to those


Come into the age of technology

I have had need in the past, and the present, to access
the St Lucie County Web site.
Compared to other counties around the state, I find it
woefully inadequate to resolve any problems I may have
dealing with the county, and poorly designed.
It would be nice if the county could hire a qualified and
creative information technologist to take this in hand in
order to actually provide us with an interactive website
.that does more than just project the basic county infor-
mation, slowly, at that.
When is the county going to come into the 20th centu-
ry, let alone the 21st?

The Golden Hour

By definition, the golden hour is the first 60 minutes
after an accident. This is the time for getting the help
needed to increase the victim's chances of survival.
I am writing this story in response to the recent deci-
sion in St. Lucie County for no funding for a new trauma
center, therefore making the distance to the nearest one,
greater.
I thought I would share from my own personal experi-
ence, having had a family member flown who was in
need of-trauma care and where time was of the essence.
Picture this scenario, a car accident at a busy intersec-
tion, where the car is overturned, the patient has broken
femurs, sustained a head injury, and is in need of trauma
care at a "nearby" trauma center.
They have one good hour to get this help.
Now, they require extrication, due to being trapped in
the car, causing time to elapse. They must be placed into
an ambulance to get to the trauma hawk that has landed
in an empty shopping plaza; again, this causes time to
elapse.
The trauma center is close; this means time is saved.
The victim survived.
New scenario, under the recent decision for no trauma
center in St. Lucie County.
This happens to you and your hour is up, because it is
more than one hour to the nearest trauma center and by
the time they got you out of the car and stabilized, you
have, let's say six minutes left.
You did not survive because you were in flight when
you needed to be on the operating table. Flight time
counted against you, and your golden hour.
Even though the trauma hawk can go up to 200 mph,
so the pilot told me, people need to understand that the
"hour" begins from the time they are injured, not when
they are in flight.
Are you willing to take the chance that you have the
extra time to fly to another county to get trauma care?
This is your life; you only get one chance at it.

David Goode, religion columnist

This is a rave.
Recently someone wrote into the Stuart edition of your
paper to rave about David Goode's column.
How ironic. His column does not appear in the Stuart

who live there.
If the road is built, all recourses should be explored as
to correcting a wrong that was imposed at the time of
purchase.
It was sad to learn that many homeowners have had to
fight this project for many years when they should be sit-
ting back and enjoying their retirement.

From page A6
edition.
Maybe this should be a heads up. I feel that adding his
column would be a nice addition to your Stuart paper.
I, for one, would enjoy reading him on a more regular
basis.
You see, I live in Stuart. I have to get a copy of the Port
St.Lucie paper to read his column.
Please put this under consideration.

Editors Note: We do run Mr: Goode's column in the Mar-
tin County edition of the Hometown News from time to
time when space and content dictate.

Refusing the refuse

When I moved from Stuart to Port St. Lucie about a
year ago, I was told that if I wanted to continue receiving
Hometown News I would have to notify you that I wanted
to "Opt In."
Frankly, at the time I found that hard to believe, but
sure enough, there were no more deliveries.
That's how things should be as it shows respect in both
directions.
There is another free delivery however, called Flashes,
that refuses to respect my wishes.
I'm really beginning to steam over this situation, since
they seem to feel that our cities and our driveways are
their personal trash bins.
I've called them at least three or more times and asked
them to cease delivery to my home but weekly trash con-
tinues to arrive.
Furthermore, as we all know, many of our neighbors go
north at this time of year, and their homes are vacant.
There are also numerous homes that are for sale and
also vacant.
When I asked Flashes why they keep delivering papers
to said homes, they merely stated that they shouldn't do
so.
The fact, however, is that they do deliver regardless of
residency, which is overly obvious because many vacated
homes have countless papers in their driveways, on their
lawns and in the streets.
When I was at a trade show one day, I coincidentally
found a booth that Flashes was occupying.
I asked if the head honcho was available to speak with,
and one of the men eagerly stepped forward.
He wasn't so eager however, when I began to express
my disdain for the litter that my neighborhood was
receiving on a weekly basis.
When my wife and I take our evening walk, the entire
area is laden with papers in all directions.
It's .trash, it's litter, I don't want it, and I don't think most
people appreciate having to pick up that which they did-
n't ask for.
Is there, or is there not, a law against littering?
Why aren't these people being arrested? Why aren't
more people calling in about it?
Anyway, they took down my address once again and
promised that my delivery would stop, but it hasn't.
Check this out, I was told-by this head honcho that I
could prevent delivery by simply placing a blue reflector
on my mailbox. I couldn't believe my ears.
My response was, "Sir, could you please tell me your
home address. You see, I plan to empty my garbage can
in your driveway every week.
However, if you choose not to have me do that, then
please place a red reflector on your mailbox so that I may
know thai you do not want my trash.


While you're at it, if you do not want your windows bro-
ken by rocks every week, please place a yellow reflector
on your mail box."
I've been seriously considering picking up a trash bag
or two of Flashes papers every week and then going to
their parking lot and spreading them all over so that they
may see how they like living with trash all around them.
Trash that they created in the first place.
I know that I couldn't get arrested for littering because
this would be nothing in comparison to what they do to
our cities.
Let's face it, someone out there is not upholding the
laws that they are paid to uphold, and it's time that they
began earning our tax dollars. It's time to stop the litter-
ing.
A few weeks back, I received a Hometown News, I
believe by accident.
My wife and I got to talking, and we actually have
missed your paper. It has valid content, so we'd like to
"Opt back in."
The one significant difference is that if for any reason I
should ask for delivery to cease, I'm quite confident that
it will.

Driver's license problem

I'd like to complain about driver's licenses.
They are broken down into six-year periods.
It is very unfair.
On one occasion, I was sent away from my waterfont
home to stay in NewYork while a storm was raging here. I
drove to New York.
While I was there, my driver's license expired on my
birthday.
On the way back I tried to stop to have my license
extended, which I have done in the past, but all of the
motor vehicle bureaus had been closed because of the
storms.
When I reached my home, the motor vehicle bureau
there was closed too. Therefore, I could not extend my
license.
My license was suspended, illegally, for no reason,
through no fault of my own.
I realize that a license to drive is a privilege. I have been
driving for 80 years, and have never had any trouble hav-
ing my license extended because my record was always
accident free.
All of a sudden, I am left here without a license.
I reapplied for my license when the motor vehicle
bureau was reopened.
They have changed their policy in some way or anoth-
er. My age is being used against me to try not to renew
my license, which is unfair, and illegal. It oppresses me
terribly.
This is something which is entirely unfair, and unjust.
I am living alone in my destroyed home destroyed in
the hurricane. I am now confined to my home without a
license. I find it a lot a trouble continuing to live here,
feed myself, go to church, and go to the library. This
handicaps my very badly.
I think there is something wrong with a system that
takes away one's privilege to drive, and proceeds to
handicap them.

There is no problem with immigrants,

In regard to the ranter who regrets seeing all of the
churlish letters from people with dubious superiority,
you sound like one of those pseudo intellectuals that do
not live in the real world.
True, the Scotch, Irish, Germans, and Italians immi-
grated to this great country, but they did this legally.


They were documented and checked to see if they were
bringing in contagious diseases.
They didn't demand free housing, free food stamps,
free medical, and so on.
Most Americans have no problem with immigrants.
It is the word "illegal" in front of the word immigrants,
that bothers them.

Is this the direction you want to go?

I would like to ask moderate Republicans to look at
what their administration is doing, and in what direction
this country is going.
I would like them to think if this is where their heart
really lies, with the Republican Party
If it isn't, the democrats will welcome you with open
arms, as well as independence.
We are asking people to look into their hearts, not to
look to Washington, but into their own hearts, and ask
themselves if this is really the direction in which they
want their country to go.
If not, please join us, the democrats, since we want to
take back America.

Put the fence up

Michael Chertoff, of Homeland Security-- where's our
fence?
We Americans want illegal immigrants out, and a fence
put up.
Just look at what is going on in Glasgow, Scotland. Do
you want it to start happening here?
Put the fence up.

Not everyone is an immigrant

This is in response to an item regarding the bad mix
for the U.S. melting pot.
I truthfully take offense when people write in and
say, "All United States citizens are a product of immi-
gration."
I know for a fact that my husband and I are not
products of immigration.
Not all United States citizens are a product of immi-
gration.
My husband's grandmother was a full-blooded
Cherokee Indian.
My grandmother was a full-blooded Cherokee Indi-
an.
Both of our grandparents married Indians. Believe
it or not, we did not have immigration in our family.
Please, please do not assume that all United Stated
citizens are a product of immigration.
I take a real offense to that.
Incidentally, my husband is a three-generation
Floridian, born and raised right here on the East
Coast.

Late paper

My rant is about receiving the Hometown News on
Monday morning, when the paper is dated the .previous
Friday.
I'd like to know why it is that I go a couple, of months
without getting the paper, and then when I do get it,
instead of getting it on a Friday, I get it on a Monday.
Receiving it late means that I have now missed-every-
thing that went on during the weekend.
My rave is that I love your paper.

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

Virtually every car dealer of educa
in Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a Sophistic
"dealer fee/dec 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 not make it
correct.


S
Ist


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

W while today's home
values are
appreciating at a
slower rate, your home is
still your best resource for
realizing your financial
dreams. Here are some
examples of how you can
put the equity in your
home to work to your
advantage:

Paying off debt,
High interest credit card
debt and unsecured loans
wreak havoc on finances.
A home equity loan can be
the ticket to consolidating
debt, reducing fees,
lowering payments, and
retiring the debt sooner.
Your interest may even be
tax deductible ask your
tax advisor.

Improving your home
With increased property
taxes, home renovations
and additions can be a less
expensive alternative to
moving. Improvements
like a remodeled kitchen,
additional bathroom or a
swimming pool, add to
your enjoyment of your
home now and its resale
value.

Financing education
The Census Bureau
reports that, on average,
college graduates earn
twice as much as high-
school graduates, making
a college education one of
the best investments you
can make. A home equity
loan is one of the most
affordable ways around to
finance that education.

Don't forget:
Hurricane season
is here
Borrowing against your


f


TIM BUSBY
Riverside National Bank
home's equity toprepare
your home for the upcom-
ing storm season is a wise
choice.
To protect yourself and
your home, educate
yourself before you choose
your loan. Visit www.feder-
alreserve.gov/pubs/Home-
Line for valuable free
information to help you
determine the best home
equity product for your
situation.

Home Equity Line
of Credit
This pay-as-you-go
option lets you "borrow"
cash as you need it up to
a preset limit. During the
draw period, you only pay
interest on the portion of
the equity line you have
used.
The rates are usually
variable, changing with an
index rate such as the
Prime Rate, but are
typically lower than credit
cards or other installment
loans. You'll also want to
find out how long your
draw period lasts, and
what happens to any
outstanding balance when
the draw period ends.
You may also have the
option to lower your
minimum monthly
payment with interest-
only payments during the


draw period. This can be a
good choice if your
income varies from month
to month. Be aware
though, you'll have to
discipline yourself to
make payments on the
principal on your own, or
face paying the entire
amount when the loan
matures.

Home Equity Loan
With a home equity
loan, you'll receive one
lump sum and start
making payments imme-
diately on the entire
amount. If you choose a
fixed rate loan, you'll
know in advance what
your payments will be for
the term of the loan. Or,
you can choose a variable
rate loan with a lower
initial rate; just be sure
you know how often your
,lender can adjust the rate
over the term of the loan.
Beware of loans offering
extremely low payments
or interest rates. The
terms that make the loan
affordable now may be
short-term incentives
that will be quickly
replaced by higher
interest rates and
payments. Be sure to ask
about prepayment
penalties and other costs
for obtaining credit.
Whichever option you
choose, be sure to ask
your bank about auto-
matic payments. You may
qualify for a lower inter-
est rate and protect
yourself from missed
payments and late fees.
Remember, with smart
borrowing, the equity in
your home can pave the
way to your dreams.

Drought
From page A2
reduction of perhaps 1.5
feet over the course of
several months.
The Army Corps of
Engineers made these
decisions in light of con-
cerns over the structural
integrity of the Herbert
Hoover Dike and the seri-
ous flooding threat that
high lake levels pose to
communities around the
lake. The same occurred
prior to the active hurri-
cane seasons of 2004 and
2005.
Should a storm of even
moderate magnitude
damage the dike when
water stages are high,
communities like Clewis-
ton, Pahokee and Belle
Glade could experience
catastrophic flooding. As
a matter of public safety,
the lake cannot be man-
aged at high elevations
during the wet season,
and even if no discharges
had been made, we
would still be in a severe,
long-term drought and
subsequent water short-
age.
Q: Why are water
restrictions in Martin and
St. Lucie counties lower
than they are in Palm
Beach and Broward
Counties?
A: Geologically, the
Martin and St. Lucie
County Service Area is
different; residents here
rely on different sources
of water. These counties
also house fewer resi-
dents. Thus, the stresses
on local resources are dif-
ferent, and in extreme
weather events, such as
heavy rains or droughts,
the resources here will
respond differently rela-
tive to other areas of the
district. All told, the
SFWMD is comprised of
five geologically unique
service areas.
Q: Are there any other
long-range plans to
address water supply?
A: Yes. The district is
proactively working with
local communities to
develop and fund alter-
native water supply
sources.
South Florida residents
now number more than
seven million, placing a
huge demand on the


region's water resources.
Despite excellent fresh-
water sources, South
Florida's water supply is
not unlimited, especially
given limited storage.
Alternative water sup-
ply projects such as
reverse osmosis, aquifer
storage and recovery and
reclaimed water use, help
create new sources to
meet our long-term
needs and water conser-
vation stretches our
existing supply.
Communities large and
small are encouraged to
explore alternative water
supplies and to apply for
funding assistance.
The district, the U.S..
Army Corps of Engineers,
local governments and
others are also imple-
menting the Comprehen-
sive Everglades Restora-
tion Plan (CERP). This is
a monumental plan with
68 project components to
build and manage a more
efficient system that can
capture and store water
that is now lost to sea.
The project will help to
restore the Everglades
and replenish water sup-
plies for the environment
and economy.
The district has already
jump-started eight CERP
projects under its Accel-
er8 Everglades restora-
tion initiative, including
three key storage reser-
voirs. For more informa-
tion, visit www.ever-
gladesnow.org.
Q: My water doesn't
come from a utility. It's
pumped from my local
lake, canal, or my private
well. Do I need to follow
restrictions?
A: In most cases, no
matter where your water
comes from, water
restrictions apply to you.
This is because surface
and groundwater are
interconnected. Water in
lakes and canals helps to
protect private and pub-
lic wells from saltwater
intrusion, and helps store
rainfall to recharge
groundwater resources
including small wells and
large aquifers.
One hundred percent
reclaimed Water, or water
reclaimed from water


sewage treatment plants,
is one of very few uses
not restricted. Reclaimed
water is water that at one
time would have been
flushed away. It is heavily
treated, not meant for
drinking and used almost
exclusively for irrigation.
Q: What is saltwater
intrusion and why should
I care about it?
A: Saltwater intrusion is
a natural process that
occurs in virtually all
coastal areas, and
involves the encroach-
ment of saltwater from
the sea flowing inland,
into freshwater aquifers.
Coastal wells are the
most vulnerable to con-
tamination by saltwater.
When too much invades
wells or aquifers, they
may become unusable.
In South Florida, we
rely on our aquifers for a
substantial portion of our
regional water supply,
and the salt and other
substances carried by
seawater are a huge
detriment.
The SFWMD resists
saltwater intrusion by
maintaining prescribed
levels of freshwater in the
system and by making
appropriate, freshwater
discharges via our canal
system.
Thus, by helping to
keep more water in the
system, this year's water
use restrictions actually
help reduce the detri-
mental impacts of salt-
water intrusion on our
water supply resources.
Area residents should
also be concerned about
saltwater intrusion
because it could eventu-
ally hit them in their
pocketbooks. When utili-
ties must pay for neces-
sary upgrades and facili-
ties to treat saltwater
before it is deemed .safe
to drink, they must pass
those costs to con-
sumers.

How to keep lawns looking lush and green


or a homeowner, one
of the greatest thrills
is to have a lush,
green lawn all year
long.Unfortunately, during
the winter months in
Florida, this can be a real
challenge.
In our area, there are two
types of lawns: St. Augus-
tine and Bahia.

St. Augustine,
Floratam

Most people have the
Floratam variety of St.
Augustine grass.
Before I get into winter
lawn maintenance, I
would like to talk a little
about Floratam grass.
This variety of St. Augus-
tine grass was introduced
to Florida in 1973 and is
used almost exclusively to
other varieties.
Floratam grass has many
advantages.
It is very adaptable and
can thrive in a wide range
of soils and environmental
conditions.
It does well in Florida's
intense sunlight. This type
of lawn is also relatively
chinch bug resistant. This
is a good point, since
many of the insecticides
that were effective for
chinch bug control, such
as dursban and diazinon,
have been removed from
the market.
Floratam is also a fast
grower that can fill in
empty areas of your lawn
fairly quickly.
The thickness of the lawn
also controls weeds.


i







JOE ZELENAK

Bahia

Bahia grass, on the other
hand, offers some disad-
vantages over its rival.
During the growing
season, it produces large
seed heads and over time,
the lawn can thin out,
which will allow weeds
and other wild grasses to
take over.
It also needs a large
amount of iron, or the
grass will yellow during the
spring and fall and has a
verycourse texture.

Ugly brown spots

Although not a concern
this time of year, your lawn
can suffer from thinning
and browning during the
colder winter months.
SOne solution would be to
over-seed with rye grass.
This method will help keep
your bare spots to a
minimum. When summer
comes, the rye grass will
die off and offer a fertilizer


effect for the summer
months.

Keeping moist

Proper watering and
fertilizer are essential for a
healthy lawn.
Always keep your lawn
evenly moist.
Under watering as well as
over-watering can cause
problems, such as drying
out or fungus.
Follow your local water-
ing schedule and follow all
water restriction regula-
tions in your area.

Feeding time

A regular fertilizer pro-
gram is essential for a lush
green lawn.
Apply a good-quality,
slow-release lawn food
about once every three
months. February is an
excellent time to apply a
good quality weed and feed.
Always apply your fertiliz-
er according to the package
directions and always use a
spreader. Never apply lawn
food by hand.

Be careful
with weed care

Care should be exercised
when choosing weed
control products because
you can only use certain
herbicides on certain lawns.
If you have a Floratam
lawn, choose a product that
contains Atrazine. This is a
safe herbicide for use in St.
Augustine variety grasses.
If you have Bahia grass,
choose a product with 2.4D
or an equivalent.


Week
From page A3


Using the wrong herbicide
can have very undesirable
effects.
With a little care and some
work, you too can have a
green lawn year-round.
I hope this information


useful as well as informative.

growing tropicals and cool
ways to display them.

How to leave a mess to your heirs


A s we go through life,
few of us plan to leave
mess to our heirs
after we are gone. However,
many of us, in fact, do leave
behind a tangled mess, ,
indeed.
Here are a few typical
messes and how to avoid
them:

Lifetime transactions
without legal advice
Problem: Often, people
enter into lifetime transac-
tions, which they think will
simplify things after their
death. However, all too
often, these complicate
matters more than anyone
could have imagined. For
example, sometimes people
add a loved one to the title
of their home or other real
estate in order to avoid
probate, thinking that loved
one will take care of the
desired property distribu-
tions. Later, perhaps they
are taken off the title and
someone else is added.
Each of these transactions is
a taxable gift in most states,
and would use a portion of
your lifetime $1 million
gifting exclusion or even
generate a current gift tax.
Further, the loved one may
not take care of the desired
property distributions and
litigation may ensue. This
may simply be because of
differing recollections of
what was intended.
Solution: Check with
your estate-planning
attorney prior to any
significant lifetime transac-
tion, such as changing title
to property, a beneficiary
designation, or other legal
documents.


ROBERT KULAS
Estate Planning
Failure to plan
Problem: Often, people
procrastinate in estate
planning, as in so many
other things. The old adage
that if you fail to plan, you
may as well plan to fail, is
true in estate planning, as in
other endeavors. This leads
to last minute, rushed
planning when you are
distracted by stressful
events in your life. Many
problems require significant
study and time to solve. For
example, a family business,
farm, extensive real estate
holdings, and other forms of
significant assets require
extra planning time.
Solution: Do not wait
until you are sick oryou are
about to board your flight
for Kuala Lumpur. Make an
appointment with an
estate-plamnning attorney
today. After your planning is
done, you will rest at ease
knowing that your loved
ones are cared for.

Failure
to communicate
Problem: Even if
people plan; oftentimes


they fail to communicate
those plans to loved ones.
This lack of communica-
tion, even in the closest of
families, can give rise to
doubts and suspicions.
These suspicions are
compounded when an
unequal disposition is
involved. While problems
may not arise until after
your death, do you really
want to saddle your
family with the emotional
and, potentially, legal
conflicts which are likely
to arise?
Solution: As Paul
Newman's character in the
film Cool Hand Luke said,
"What we've got here is a
failure to communicate."
Open communication
about your plans and their
implementation goes a
long way to accomplish
your goals.
By seeking competent
legal advice, planning,
and communicating those
plans you can avoid the
problems that so often
wreak havoc on families,
their emotions, and their
inheritances. A qualified
estate-planning attorney
can help you every step of
the way so that you can be
sure that your plans are
carried out after you are
gone.

Make restaurant quality coconut


and almond shrimp at home


Hello, smart shop-
pers. Hope you
had a good week.
Today's column will
cover many delicious
things.
A reader named Frank
asked about replacing
spices after one year.
Ground spices are
extremely expensive and
the notion of throwing
them away is ludicrous.
However, as a spice ages
it loses some of its
strength.
The solution: Use a
little more. The only time
I will discard a spice is if
it's walking or growing.
The exception is baking
powder and baking soda.
If used long after the
expiration date, your
baked goods may not
turn out right.
Two of my favorite
shrimp dishes are
coconut and almond
shrimp.
While visiting a restau-
rant in Tallahassee, I had
almond shrimp. It was
unbelievable.
Nowhere could I find a
recipe, so I created my
own for both of these
delectable delights.
Dipping sauces are
varied and expensive.
Save the little packets of
sweet and sour sauce
from Chinese take-out;
they're also great used as
a glaze for chicken or
pork.
I make my own using
(all sugar-free), orange
marmalade melted with
any berry preserve, a
little lemon juice, a dash
of garlic powder, soy
sauce and pepper.
Look to baby foods.
Plums with a few added
spices make a great plum
sauce.
Layered salads are
perfect for summertime.
Many of you complain
that fat-free cream
cheese and sour cream
are awful.
When combined in a
recipe with other ingredi-
ents you can't tell the
difference.
If yoti think fat-free
cheese doesn't melt, it
just lays on top of the


food and dies, and you
can peel it off like a piece
of plastic, then you
haven't tried Kraft fat-
free slices. They come in
American, cheddar, Swiss
and mozzarella. The
cheddar also comes
grated.
These cheeses melt
better than high-fat
cheeses, I promise.
Enjoy. See you next
week.

DENTAL CARE AT WORK
Q: Is it considered okay to brush and floss while you're at work?
A: Maybe not if you're doing it during a conference call. But otherwise, it's a
good idea to take a few minutes to brush and or floss at work after a meal or a
snack. Keep a toothbrush in a travel case, toothpaste and floss or an interdental
cleaner in a drawer and use them in the relative privacy of your business's
washrooms.
Incidentally, a study done last year by a major insurance company found that ..
more men practice healthy dental habits at the office than women. A telephone poll of 1,000
consumers found that some 40 percent of men either brush or floss at work after a meal or snack.
Women were more apt to describe the practice as inappropriate or impolite. Only 26 percent of
women said they would brush their teeth at work and only 22 percent said they would floss.
Nearly 90 percent of respondents said there was a strong connection between overall physical
health and dental hygiene. Seventy percent said they visit a dentist at least once a year and nearly
35 percent said they go every six months. .

TRAVEL



Get passport even if you


haven't made travel plans yet


There is so much
confusion lately with
passports. Of course,
if you have a valid pass-
port there is no problem.
Those who are planning
on traveling outside of the
United States need to be
aware of all of the current
changes in policy.

A little history

The Western Hemisphere
Travel Initiative requires
all citizens of the United
States, Canada, Mexico
and Bermuda to have a
passport or other accepted
document that establishes
the bearer's identity and
nationality to enter or re-
enter the United States
from within the Western
Hemisphere.
At one time, U.S. citizens
could orally declare they
were citizens when
entering a land or seaport
of entry.
This vulnerability, first
identified by the 9/11
Commission, and later
addressed by Congress is
the reason for the WHTI.
This was supposed to
start in January.
All U.S. citizens traveling
outside of the United
States by air, boat, car or
sea were to have a valid
passport.
Although traveling by air,
you would still need a
passport to travel outside
the United States.


PATTY TOPPA
Travel columnist

Time to relax?

In December 2006, the
law was relaxed for those
traveling by sea or car until
January 2008.
Now the news is that
they have relaxed the
implementation until
summer 2008 because of
the immense back up in all
of the passport agencies.
Also on June 8, Maura
Harty, assistant secretary
for Consular Affairs and a
State Department spokes-
woman said, announced
that there was a backup in
getting passports to
everyone who applied.
"In light of the current
situation, from now
through Sept. 30, U.S.
citizens traveling to
Canada, Mexico, the
Caribbean, and Bermuda
who have applied for, but
not yet received, passports
can temporarily enter and


depart the United States
by air without a passport,"
Ms. Harty said.
However, you must have
a government issued
photo identification and
State Department official
proof of application for a
passport.
Children younger than
16 traveling with a parent
or guardian will also need
proof of application.
Travelers who haven't
applied for a passport, will
have to do so at www. tray-
el.state.gov. This Web site
also answers many other
questions pertaining to
the new rules.

More changes

On June 20, less than
two weeks later, a new
border rule relaxed the
need for a passport for
cruise passengers (cruis-
ing to and from a United
States port) and crossing
the borders of Canada
and Mexico until summer
2008.
With the constant
changes in this initiative,
it is best to get your
passport processed now,
before you have any
traveling plans.

DUI
From page Al
\J1_>.. ^ ney, he said he sees a num-
osphere! ber of lives affected by DUI
crashes.
The purpose of the legis-
lation, he said, is to assure
victims' medical bills are
":", taken care of and that
:,', they're compensated for
lost wages following a
Walk.ins crash with an impaired
elco0fe: driver.
"It's an extra layer of pro-
tection for the victim,"
L L k Rep. Kriseman said.
Bsoage "Maybe it will also act as a
Maimr deterrent that will make
RdF,,r' people think about drink-
ing and driving. If you're
going to be careless
enough to drink and drive,
you're going to have to
pay."
Florida's current mini-
mum liability insurance
limit is "10/20/10," which
provides $10,000 compen-
sation for the injury or
oy death of one person in an
accident if the other driver
is at fault; $20,000 com-
pensation for multiple
ms injuries or deaths; plus
$10,000 to repair damage
to the other driver's vehi-
cle, or other damages, such
as to traffic light poles,


mailboxes, etc.
National City Insurance
of Fort Pierce offered
quotes showing how a DUI
could cause premiums to
jump.
The fictional policyhold-
er is a male driving a 2002
Ford Explorer with basic
personal injury protection,
a $2,000 medical pay, $250
comprehensive deductible
and $500 collision
deductible. When he is 18
and has a clean driving
record, his six-month pre-
mium with "10/20/10"
coverage through Hanover
comes to $1,626; with
MetLife, it would be
$1,790; with Progressive,
it's $2,917; and with Safeco,
it's $1,716.
If that same 18-year-old
is guilty of a DUI crash and
goes to the new required
"100/300/50" coverage, his
premiums skyrocket. Post
DUI, the teen's six-month
premium with Hanover
would be $2,195; with
MetLife it's $2,792; with
Progressive, it's $4,156; and
with Safeco it's $4,123.
Insurance companies
are easier on more experi-
enced drivers, though their
premiums still jump under
the "100/300/50" DUI sce-
nario.

said.
Potential drivers must
have a commercial driver's
license from the state with
school bus and passenger
endorsements. Drivers
must also be able to suc-
cessfully pass a drug and
background screening. Mr.
Carter said the district will
not consider people with
driving under the influ-
ence arrests, even if it is


one that happened years
ago.
"We tend to be a little
more picky than other dis-
tricts," he said.
Candidates must also be
able to pass physical and
agility tests. '
Drivers undergo a train-
ing program by the district,
which involves a week of
classroom work followed
by on-the-road training.

for them," Mr. Carter, a for-
mer school bus driver,
said.
. Full time drivers receive
the same benefits as every
other employee with the
school district. They also
receive an hourly rate
between $14.75 and
$19.93, per the 2006-2007
pay schedule. Mr. Carter
said drivers were set for a
pay increase in the coming
months.
St. Lucie County School
District bus drivers typical-
ly drive routes for two to
three schools, and work
between six to eight hours
a day. They also have the
same days off as school
children, making it an ideal
job for parents.
Dinaish Ram, who has
been a driver since 2004,
let the business world
behind to transport stu-
dents. He made the career
switch to spend more time
with his children, who are
14 and 17.
"Before, I spent too
much time away from my
own children and I decided
to choose a job where I
could be off with my kids,"
Mr. Ram said. "I was a busi-
nessman for 10 years,
working 15 hour days,
seven days a week. Now, I
enjoy being with my chil-
dren."
Mr. Ram said he also
likes the challenge of driv-
ing a school bus and enjoys
having a job where every
day is a new experience.
"If I didfi't like it, I would-
n't be here," he added.
Lucy Lyons started driv-
ing a school bus 21 years
ago, with the last five in St.
Lucie County. She enjoys
driving because of the
interaction with the chil-
dren.
"It's the best job out
there," Ms. Lyons said. "I
love seeing them start in
kindergarten and watch
them all the way through
high school."

If the male driving the
2002 Ford Explorer was 25
years old and had a clean
driving record, he'd pay
$852 for six months of
"10/20/10" coverage from
Safeco and $816 from Pro-
gressive. Post DUI, he'd
pay $1,853 for Safeco and
$1,398 for Progressive.
If the male was 40, he'd
pay $758 for MetLife and
$531 for Hanover. After a
DUI, he'd pay $1,233 for
MetLife and $753 for
Hanover.
Per the bill, the addition-
al coverage must be kept
for three years following a
DUI.
In addition to the height-
ened insurance coverage
mandated by the legisla-
tion, driver's license rein-
statement fees have also
risen. The cost to get. a
license back following a
DUI has gone from $15 to
$150. Subsequent rein-
statements will cost $150,
$250 and $500.
In 2006, there were 850
DUI arrests in St. Lucie
County; 786 in Martin
County; and 577 in Indian
River County.

Internet and its many

benefits will be

around a long time


My ex-wife's question
took me complete-
ly by surprise.
She asked such a basic
question, I was at a loss to
answer her. I thought the
answer was obvious.
"Why should I bother
with the Internet?" she
asked. "I've gotten along
without it for all these years,
why should I spend my time
learning my way around the
Internet when I can pick up
an encyclopedia or go to a
library and find out whatev-
er I need to?"
I was shocked.
I was flabbergasted.
I was stumped!
I had never really sat down
and thought about just what
the Internet was good for. I
had always just felt that the
Internet was, and that it was
good.
Let's start with a little
history.
The Internet has been
around for almost 40 years.
It started when the U.S.
Defense Department hired
the Advanced Research
Projects Agency to create a
computer network that
would be impervious to
nuclear attack.
The result was ARPANET,
a bunch of computers
connected to each other
with no one computer in
charge. This way, if the
commies (we were in the
heart of the Cold War at this
time) ever decided to nuke
us, the computer network
would still work.
-I guess one benefit of the
Internet is that in the event
of a nuclear war, you will
still get your e-mail.
In the 1980s, universities
and the science community
wanted a way to share
information with each other
and ARPANET was the ideal
way to go about it.
Unfortunately, the military
had way too many security
measures. Scientists and
universities just wanted to
share data, not worry about
passwords and security.
The National Science
Foundation went on to
create its own network
using the same decentral-
ized approach as ARPANET.
Thus NSFNet was born.
For a while the two
networks coexisted nicely.
Then someone got the idea
to link the two networks;
voila, the Internet was born.
The concept of the
Internet is truly incredible ,
and gives definition to the
term "information age."
At the click of a button, all
of the world's accumulated

Compute This


knowledge is available to
anyone who knows where
to look.
If knowledge is power,
then anyone with a com-
puter "on the wire" is now
potentially a very powerful
someone.
The early 1990s brought a
new era to the Internet. This
was when ordinary people
were allowed access without
having to go through a
military computer or a
university system.
Suddenly, everyone could
have an e-mail address and
search databases once
accessible only by scientists,
historians and military
personnel.
Also, the decentralized
approach of computer
networking has led to
'advances such as the World
Wide Web, a way to
exchange information with
words, sounds, video and
pictures.
Never before in history
have people had access to
such an incredible amount
of information.
Children can find help
with their homework as well
as play games with other
people in other parts of the
world, kind of likepen pals
with a high tech twist.
Adults can do investment
research online, take a
college class from their own
homes, or even see their
grandchildren take their
first steps as they talk on
videophone.
The list goes on and on.
The thing to remember
about the Internet is that it
is boundless. There is no
central agency running the
show, nor are there any
limits. It is .a constantly
evolving medium.
We can only guess where
the Internet will take us
next, but we can rest
assured, the Internet is here
to stay, even in the event of a
nuclear war.
Sean McCarthy has
worked with computers
since 1978.

According to the protest-
ers, not only must you let me
stay, you must add me to

If you try to call the police

because you have a nicer

And what a deal it is for
me. I live in your house,
contributing only a fraction
of the cost of my keep, and
there is nothing you can do
about it without being
accused of selfishness,
racism, prejudice and being
an anti-housebreaker.'
Oh yeah, and I wat you to
learn my language so you
can communicate with me,
and if you have things in
your house without my lan-
guage, well, you're a dirty
racist and me and my
friends and signs will come
picket outside your door
denouncing you for being so
terrible.
America is my big house,
so illegals, get the hell out of
my living room.
If you want to be here so
badly, ring the doorbell
(apply for citizenship) and
get permission (visas and
citizenship, for those con-
fused) first.

Money for fireworks
I read in the papers this
week about how the com-


munities along the coast of
Florida were worried about
how they were going to get
enough money to have
their fireworks displays.
I don't know why they
just don't cut the displays
in half? Instead of $10,000,
why don't they spend
$5,000, and just have a
smaller display?
I remember years ago
when I would take my son
to the fireworks, he would
fall asleep before it was
over anyway. It seems like
it was always a little too
long for the kids.
People would wait for
the big finale, and the kids
would already be asleep, or
starting to get cranky.
Just do half as much,
people will enjoy it just as
much.

Not all prices that go
up will go down
We've all complained
about the gas prices, but
now they have come down
a bit, and it is not quite so
bad.
But, how about the gro-
cery prices? They have
gone up, and they don't
come back down.-
Today when I shopped,
things that were $1.99 are
now $2.39.
The things that were
$1.79 are now $1.99. Every-
thing seems to jump from
15 cents to 20 cents, not 5
cents, or 10 cents.
I don't know what we are
going to do about it, but it
just keeps going up.
The only thing I saw in
the whole store that did
not go up was bananas, at
49 cents a pound.
I just don't understand it.
It is getting to be too much.
Even the paper goods are


up. Things that were $1.99
are now $2.39.
I certainly didn't have
much pleasure shopping
today.

Maybe she
should be quiet
I was just watching
Hilary Clinton on televi-
sion. She was bashing the
president because he
made the pardon of Mr.
Libby.
I'd like for her to remem-
ber that while she was "co-
president," a pardon was
issued to (fugitive) Marc
Rich.
I do believe that she
ought to keep her big
mouth shut. I say that
because Mrs. Clinton has
too many ghosts and
skeletons in her closet
Let he who is without sin
cast the first stone.

Read before you vote
This is an appeal to every
American voter; it has no
politically based agenda.
Please read before you
make up your mind before
you decide whom you will
be voting for.
Please read the "Extreme
Makeover of Hillary (Rod-
ham) Clinton," by Bay
Buchanan.
I believe the American
people should be familiar
with a person's profession-
al background.
This book, without my
going into any detail, is an
eye opener, and, in my
opinion, should be read by
every American voter.
I'm not going to give my
personal thoughts on it. I
just have an appeal that
this book be read before
anyone presses the lever.

surprised to see Port St.
Lucie drop off the list for
b1-,* '06 to '07 because in the
_ latter half of 2006, the resi-
'"- dential home industry-
' slipped inruoa recession."
Since th6 city was grow-
ing at a tremendous rate
since 2000, numerous new
homes were constructed
by investors. Mr. Santos
said he estimates 60 to 75
percent of the market for
new homes were investors, I
which contributed to the 4
rapid rise in property val- 4
Sues and ultimately hurt the
real estate market.
"The home building
industry right now is a very
different time," Mr. Santos A
said. "Investors artificially
inflated the value of homes
and people living in their
homes got an artificial f
sense of wealth."
Although the market is
not what it was in previous
years,. Mr. Santos said the
market should begin to
level out as the city begins
to build a biomedical and
research industry, led by
Torrey Pines Institute for
Molecular Studies.
"I don't see a trend we
are completely pulling out,
but I see a lot to indicate
things are stable," Mr. San-
tos said.
Torrey Pines is a bio-
medical research company
in La Jolla, Calif. that is
opening facilities in Port
St. Lucie. The center con-
ducts research on various
human ailments, such as
diabetes, Alzheimer dis-
ease and cancer.
Vice. Mayor Kelly' said I
despite the increase in
property values in the last
few years, Port St. Lucie is
still a good buy for the
i money.
"The value is still there,"
SMr. Kelly said. "Port St.
Lucie will never be like
Fort Lauderdale."
Ultimately, Mr. Kelly said
the city will continue to
grow and stay on the list as
a top community to live in.
"There are no slums
and we want to keep it
clean with no adult stores
or strip clubs," Mr. Kelly
said. "We try to keep Port
St. Lucie a little better
..I and cleaner than the
.1 cities surrounding us. We
are doing our best with
what we have."

Dance, sing out of a rut


My husband, Roy,
and I recently saw
a marvelous school
production of the musical,
"Rent."
The message of living
each day really resonated
with us.
Sometimes when you
deal with chronic illnesses
and frequent medical
crises, you lose sight of
living in the quest to stay
alive. Just getting through
the days, with multiple
medical appointments,
financial concerns and
other worries gets you so
caught up that you forget
how to have fun and how to
live the life that you have
left.
Roy and I have each
discovered how much fun it
can be to try new things
and grab hold of life instead
of it clutching onto us.
Roy fell recently, and
some balance problems
sent us on the search for
physical therapy.
It's been great for him.
The therapist comes to
the house and acts more as
a personal trainer than a
therapist.
I think Roy was envision-
ing learning how to walk
with a cane, and instead,
he's lifting weights, using
resistance bands, riding the
stationary bicycle and
doing the things he thought
he'd never do again.
He says he feels much
better and I'm sure he does,
physically, after only a few
sessions.
The bigger change,
however, is to his mood.
Even the always-opti-
mistic Roy had begun to
walk slowly and the smiles
were less frequent.
Now I see the old Roy,
with a spring to his step
and a quip on his lips.


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well
At 79, he's remembering
what he can do, and not
what he can't do.
I've also spread my wings
a bit.
I have always wanted to
take singing lessons. It was
on my "someday I'll" list.
Of course, I had to
rationalize doing some-
thing I wanted to do. I
persuaded myself that the
deep breathing was good
for stress relief and to
strengthen my lung capaci-
ty because of the missing
lobe.
I was right. It is a great
stress reliever and I am
breathing better, but that's
not the story.
The story is that I love it!
I'm having a ball belting
out songs, such as "Hey, Big
Spender" and "'All That
Jazz" and I feel more
confident,
I thought I'd be the oldest
student, but my teacher,
Peter, tells me he had an
85-year-old student who
wanted to keep his brain
active.
Having started singing, I
decided my exercise
routine was in a rut, and
seized on the dance craze.
I gpt a bunch of exercise
DVDs with dancing
themes, and in the privacy


of my bedroom, I'm doing
the samba, hip hop, jazz
and jive.
Who cares if I get all the
steps right? I'm not going
to step on anyone's toes.
We're a lot happier at our
house.
Yes, it's hard to deal with
anything else when you're
constantly in crisis mode.
We finally got a break and
we're making the most of it.
If you've wanted to do
something, anything, get
moving!
Sign up for lessons, plan a
trip, join a book group;
push yourself outside your
comfort zone.
If you have an interest
and can't find a group, start
one.
None of us knows what
the future will hold.
Neither Roy nor I could
have imagined the medical
crises of the last seven
years.
We will never again take
for granted the "good days"
and we intend to make the
most of them.
I hope you will, too.

The Treasure Coast Youth


Symphony marks 20 years


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Dr. John Enyart is such
a modest man that it is
difficult for him to take
the credit for founding
and directing the treas-
ure Coast Youth Sym-
phony, which just com-
pleted its 20th year.
He gives credit to his
associate conductors,
Thomas Servinsky, who
recruits wind players
and son Benjamin
Enyart, a violinist, but
for many on the Treasure
Coast, he is the face of an
orchestra that has
trained many of the
finest young performers
in the area in musical
skills and in the disci-
pline needed to succeed
in. whatever path they
take.


The Indiana native, a
son of missionaries, took
a leave of absence from
Hobe Sound Bible Col-
lege and went to Morn-
ingside Church in Port
St. Lucie, where he
directed the music pro-
gram.
"I met with Diane
Float, orchestra director
at Lincoln Park Acade-
my, and we agreed there
was a need for an
orchestra to cater to the
upper levels of young
musicians," he says.
"Good players encour-
age good players. Put
good players together
and it's a delight."
The orchestra accepts
new members only by
audition and has
between 55-65 members
at a time.
"We stress certain lev-


els for the strings and
brass and woodwinds,"
Dr. Enyart says. "They
have to be solo quality.
We only have three
flutes, two or three.
oboes, clarinets and bas-
soons. Since we can't
have a lot, they have to
be the best. Some of the
greatest, talent is in this
area and some have
made a mark anid are
playing professionally."
The orchestra draws
from Vero Beach to
Jupiter, and this year has
a number of students
from Hobe Sound Chris-
tian Academy, where his
son John is a teacher.
The orchestra rehearses
on Monday evenings at
Jensen Beach High
School's state-of-the art
band room, beginning at
the end of August and


continuing through
April.
"It's a big commit-
ment," Dr. Enyart says.
"We try to have several
concerts in four or five
different places. Offer-
ings are taken and the
money is used for schol-
arships. We give six $500
scholarships for summer
studies or college."
While the fee for join-
ing the orchestra is $90,
students are expected to
have their own instru-

"If kids make the
orchestra, they have to
make that commit-

Local star Jennifer Breeze returns


from Nashville to debut new CD


By SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer


You may remember Jen-
nifer Breeze from her days
at Martin County High
School, where she was a
member of the elite Opus
choral group for four years.
The 1998 Martin County
graduate, now a
singer/songwriter, lives
and works in Nashville She
returns home to the Lyric
Theatre on July 21 to debut
her new CD, "Something
Real," and she recently
spoke by phone about her
journey to Nashville and
back home.
Ms. Breeze, who was
raised in Jensen Beach,
grew up playing a series of
"little red toy guitars" she
got as a young child.
"It was the size of a
ukulele," she says. "I owned
a couple; I was told the first
one I had got run over, so I
got another one. It never
left my hands. I've always
wanted to do it. I've sung
my little heart out for as -
long as I can remember."
After high school, Ms.
Breeze attended the
University of Miami, where
she was involved in the


.,1 \
Je. ez






Jennifer Breeze


Baptist Collegiate Min-
istries, but she wanted to
get involved in audio
engineering and realized
Miami was not the school
for her.
She attended IRCC and
got a degree in art and then
moved to Murfreesboro,
Tenn. to attend Middle
Tennessee State University,
which offers degrees
related to the music
business.
"I knew that if I wanted to
study recording, it was one
of the best," she says. "I
finally got my recording
degree, but I still wanted to
be a singer,and artist. The
technical side was the


fallback side while I was
breaking into the industry."
After a few years, she
moved back to Jensen
Beach and took a job as the
worship leader at the
Treasure Coast Community
Church, but she kept alive
the dream of performing
and recording.
"I still felt like I was
supposed to be an artist," '
she says. "The ministry
was a huge part of my life
but I still wanted to make a
go of the music."
She married Jensen
Beach resident Bryan
Timmerman in 2004, and
when he was hired to work
in Nashville as production
manager for a company
that records Sunday School
curriculum DVDs, she
retuned to work on her
music while working at the
same company on the
technical side.
The product of two years
of writing and recording,
she wanted to come home
to debut "Something Real"
because her family and
friends are here.
"When I left the church,
everyone was very support-
ive of my talent," she says.
"It seemed only fitting to


come back to where I came
from. These are the people
who made me who I am."
She describes "Some-
thing Real" as a melting
pot of styles, including folk
rock, country, blues and
jazz.
"There's something for
everyone," she says.
If you don't like the first
track, wait for the second. It
is secular and mainstream,
but some songs are faith-
based, about God and my
relationship with him.
"There are a lot of rela-
tionship songs on the CD. I
actually think that music
reaches beyond beliefs and
lifestyles to influence
people. People are open to
music, and a song means
different things to different
people. Listen to the music.
I don't want to be pigeon-
holed or labeled. Listen to it
and take it for what it is."
Jennifer Breeze appears at
the Lyric Theatre on July 21
at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15;

"We know there's more
of a commitment if they
buy, but a bassoon, for
example, may be almost
$5,000. We know the dif-
ference a good instrument
makes."
Auditions for the
orchestra's next season
will take place in the last
week of August or the
beginning of September.
Musicians should have a
prepared piece and be
prepared to sight read, as
well as have familiarity
with specific require-
ments for their instru-
ments.
While the orchestra's
Web site is not yet avail-
able, students can call Dr.


Enyart at (772) 871-2276
for more information


about the orchestra or the
auditions.

Always get promises and


commitments in writing


any readers of
this column call
me for advice
and to tell me horror
stories about their deal-
ing with unethical car
dealers.
Of course, it would be
much better had these
readers called me before
they bought the car.
This is my 60th column
for Hometown News and
I have given advice on a
variety of subjects that
should make your car
buying or servicing
experience safer and
more pleasant.
There is one piece of
advice, which, if strictly
followed, would eliminate
more than 90 percent of
the problems car buyers
have with car dealers.
That advice is, "always
insist that all promises
and commitments made
by the car salesperson or
sales manager are put in
writing."
The written commit-
ments should be signed
by both you and the sales
person/manager and you
should retain a copy.
These are just some
examples of promises
made by sales people and
sales managers that were
not kept:
Sign the contract, drive
the car home, and if you
change your mind within
three days, you can bring
the car back and we will
refund all of your money.
(When the customer
broughtthe car back, the
salesman claimed he
never said any such
thing)
After signing a 36-
month lease, the sales-
man assured this cus-
tomer that if she got tired
of this car in less than 36
months, she could just
bring it back anytime. (Of
course the leasing com-
pany didn't agree with the
salesman on this).
A customer was prom-
ised she would be able to
get free loaner cars
anytime she brought her
car in for service. (The
service department didn't
know anything about this.
They don't offer free
loaners).
The business manag-
er told the customer that
the warranty/extended
service contract he was
selling her covered 100
percent of anything that
went wrong with her car.
(When she came in for a
brake job, the service
manager showed her the
fine print in the warranty
contract that said mainte-
nance items were not
covered).
The salesman told the
customer not to trade his
car in on the. new car
because he owed more on
the car than it was worth.
He told him to let the
bank take his old car back
and because he was
making his payments on
time on the new car it
wouldn't harm his credit
rating. (I don't think this
requires any explana-
tion).
Customers are prom-
ised that they can bring
their car back after they
buy it and have CD
players, leather, running
boards, floor mats and
other accessories
installed as part of the
deal. When they come
back, none of the man-
agers knows about this
and the salesman can't be
found or doesn't "remem-
ber."
I could list dozens more
of these anecdotes.
You have very little
chance when it's your
word against the sales-
man or sales manager.
You have even less chance
if it's two against one.
Do not be timid about
asking that everything


promised to you is put in
writing. If the salesman
objects to this or hesi-
tates, you have to ask
yourself why?
Another reason for
having all promises
committed to writing is


I

that the salesman or sales
manager may not work at
that dealership when you
come back to collect on
his promise. He may have
been sincere, but now he's
gone. Will his replace-
ment believe you?
It's a good idea to carry
a note pad with you when
you are negotiating to buy
a car.
I wrote a previous
column entitled "Never
Go Car Shopping Alone."


When you have an ally
with you, she/he can take
notes while you are
negotiating. Also, if you
do forget to commit a
promise to writing, your
credibility is enhanced
when it's two against one
instead of "he said/she
said."
When signing the final
documents, you have
your complete set of notes
detailing promises,
assurances and commit-
ments by the salesman.
Then, all you have to do is
have these signed by both
parties and be sure that
you get a copy.

Following law of love would


eliminate need for other laws


ome time ago, I read an
article on a man who
had researched and
written about laws.
"Since the beginning of
recorded history, govern-
ments of all the countries in
the world had peacefully or
forcefully enacted at least 7
million laws," he wrote.
"How could anyone keep
all those laws?" I thought.

"With that many, there must
have been a lot of them
broken."
The article went on to say
we could have lived without
all these if we practiced the
original 10, and we could
live without the 10 if we
practiced "the one law."
I was deeply moved by the
idea, and all of a sudden a
poem came flowing through
me almost as if it were
writing itself.
Here it is written in prose
form to save space.

The One Law

One law, one law, what
matters but The One Law?
There is just one law for all
ofcreation.
It was made without flaw
or discrimination
Given to every living kind
in perfect dedication.
Spirit made The One Law
for all of creation.
One Law, one law.
What matters but The One
Law?
The law is love. The law is
love. The law is love.
Known by many names.
Called the golden rule. No
law has more fame. It was
made for me and you.
One law, one law, what
matters but The One Law?
The law is love. The law is
love. The law is uncondition-
al love.
The title of this column
last week was, "The
supreme secret to living a
happy life," the secret being

how to use an open heart as
a channel of love.
One of the mostexciting
mysteries of life is that of 10-
fold return.
In a garden when the
seeds are planted in fertile
soil, watered, covered up
and surrendered, they begin
the process of creating life.
The seed sends out the roots
like a child at birth knows
how to seek out its mother
for nurturing.
Then the universe begins
to send back the nourish-
ment through the roots and
the little shoot comes out of
the ground.
This is the sign of a
blessing on the seed. The
earthly seed has connected
to the source. Its' real parent
is now feeding it. Our job
now is to feed the source so
it can feed the newborn
plant.
Understand and apply this
principle of giving first in all
areas of your life and you are
on your way to a magnifi-
cent life.
In time, the plant begins to
bloom, become fruitful,
bring us a bountiful harvest
and great reward for the
effort.
We give first to the uni-
verse. Then the universe
gives back 10-fold.
.This is the law of love at its
finest.
The supreme law is

abundance. Every form of
life follows this plan. To the
extent we honor the uni-
verse and love it, it will
honor us right back and
show even greater love.
The key is to surrender our
will, be patient and let the.
universal will flow through
us and work for us. Giving
love and then letting it
return multiplied is the
supreme hope for the
continuation of healthy,
abundant and happy life on
earth.
How happy are you?What
do you love the most? What
kind of seeds are you sowing
and reaping? Sow positive
reap positive. Sow negative,
reap negative. This is an
exacting law of cause and
effect.
My greatest wish is that
you find and use this great
secret power of love to
create your mission and
fulfill your destiny. You can
do it. The passion and the
power have been in your
soul since birth yearning to
be set free.
Once you see it working,
take care of yourself and
family needs first. Then give
back to those you shared the
secret mysteries with you.
Help keep them going. Then
teach others ready to learn.
May love live in your heart
forever. You are doing a great
job. The sweetest news is the
best is yet to come.

What is the church all about?


Matthew 16:18
declares, "You
are Peter, and
on this rock, I will build
my church, and the gates
of Hades shall not prevail
against it."
What exactly is the
church? Some think the
church is nothing more
than a building.
While the places
where believers meet are
called churches, the
actual church is the
people, the believers.
In a real sense, when
believers gather to
worship God and to learn
more about Him, they are
the church.
In Matthew 18:20,
Jesus said, "For where
two or three are gathered
together in my name,
there I am in the midst of
them."
Church is you and
your grandmother,
swinging on the front
porch. The sound of the
chain adds a rhythm to
the old gospel hymns
that grandmother never
seems to forget.
The sounds of crick-
ets, and an occasional
hoot owl accent the
worship experience.
The warmth of sum-
mer is in the air, but the
coolness of an approach-
ing thunderstorm,
creates the perfect cool
setting for the sweet
presence of God to fill
you both to overflowing.
As you reach for
grandmother's home-
made lemonade, your
cousin opens the screen
door. He joins in with
finger style, southern

Religion columnist
gospel guitar music, and
you suddenly realize, it
just doesn't get any better
than this.
You may be thinking,
"But Pastor David, I'm
not from the south!"
Ok, I understand, but
if you have allowed me to
paint this wonderful
rustic word picture, on
the canvas of your mind,
you will see "the church"
in a new way.
You experience
church when you run
into a believer at the
park, and she is painfully
alone. You notice that she
is holding back tears.
As you feel tears
forming in your eyes, you
ask if you may pray with
her, She briefly shares
her story of betrayal with
you. You notice a nearby
park bench, and you
invite her to sit down.
As you begin to pray,
you sense the comfort of
God's holy spirit gently
bringing healing to a
broken heart. You remind
her that tears bring
healing, and that it is OK
to cry. This too, is church.
Another misconcep-
tion some people have


regarding church is that
it is only for "good
people." Or perhaps, for
those pretending to be
"good."
The church isn't just
for "good people," it is
also for people like you,
and all of us, who know
they can be forgiven, no
matter what they have
done.
So called "good
people," are only good
because they have the
God living inside of their
hearts.
God is inviting believ-
ers and non-believers
alike, of all cultures, to
come together to cele-
brate his love and mercy.
The church is made
up of all kinds of people.
The early church, two
thousand years ago, was
made up of believers
from many walks of life.
They were made up of
slaves, servants, Jews,
Gentiles, men, women,
old people, and young
people.
Today, churches
contain many different
people. God loves all
people, bringing them
together for the united
purpose of worshipping
and serving him.
Styles of worship and
focus of ministry vary,
but we must remember
that we are all part of
God's family.
Hebrews 10:25 says
this, "Let us not neglect
our church meetings, as.
some people do, but
encouraging one anoth-
er, especially now that
the day of Christ's com-
ing is drawing near."
At Heart of Worship,
we emphasize the wor-


ship experience. Our
family of members and
guests are free to praise
the Lord, in a manner
that connects them to
Him.
Bible teaching is
presented in a fresh way,
which brings an excite-
ment to learning about
God and his word.
. God's holy spirit is
always in our midst. He
demonstrates his glori-
ous presence and power,
by healing the sick and
broken hearted.
We are .one big happy
family, God's family that
reaches out to those in
need in our community
in various ways.
If you don't have a
home church, pray and
ask God to guide you to a
church that teaches the
gospel, the dynamic
word of God. Then open
your heart to God, accept
Christ, and express your
love for him, in worship
and praise.

Pastor David Goode, is
the senior pastor at the
Heart of Worship Min-
istries. The church meets
each Sunday at 2:30 p.m.,
at the Port St. Lucie
Community Center,
across from City Hall,
located at 2195 Airoso
Blvd. The service is held
in the arts and crafts
room.

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

Treasure Coast residents
may see an increase of the
giant land crab, measuring
up to six inches across,


over the next few months.
Peak reproductive
activity occurs during full
moons in summer, which
can lead the crabs as far as
five miles inland.
The spawning season
(and female migration to
ocean) lasts from June to
December, peaking in
October and November.
Residents may find large
numbers of land crabs on
roadways, climbing patio
screens and making their
way into open garages.
Capture and removal
using live traps baited with
crab food items or trap-
ping with nets is legal.
The following guidelines
should be adhered to:
Blue land crabs shall
only be harvested during
the open season, which is
from Nov. 1 of each year
through June 30 of the fol-
lowing year.
*No person shall harvest,
attempt to harvest, or pos-
sess any blue land crab
during the period begin-
ning on July 1 and contin-
uing through Oct. 31 of
each year.
However, for nuisance
crabs in yards, they can be
trapped and removed.
For additional infor-
mation about land crabs,
contact Ken Gioeli, St Lucie
County Natural Resources
Agent, at (772) 462-1660.

Prep steroid testing misses the mark


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
The Florida House of Rep-
resentatives passed House
Bill 461 last month, officially
recognizing the steroid era
in Florida high school athlet-
ics.
The Florida High School
Athletics Association will
now "test one percent of the
student-athletes in grades 9-
12 who participate in the,
sports of baseball, football,
and weightlifting," accord-
ing to a statement by FHSAA
Commissioner John A. Stew-
art.
But was it a public rela-
tions move, or an attempt to
fix a problem in Florida high
schools?
It's hard to tell exactly.
By testing only one per-
cent of athletes in just three
sports the FHSAA will check
only a miniscule number of


potential cheaters.
Out of the 15 FHSAA
sanctioned sports and
seven recognized sports,
only one percent of athletes
in 13 percent of offered
high school sports are sub-
ject to steroid testing.
I'm no mathematician,
but that's barely scratching
the surface of the student-
athletes in the state of
Florida.
Yes, football, baseball and
even weightlifting are thiee
of the most popular sports
out there, with a lot of stu-
dents ofn each team.
And yes, if kids are going
to juice, they are most likely
to do it for one of these
sports.
But what about the other
19 sports the FHSAA offers?
Are the FHSAA and the
Florida House of Represen-
tatives so naive to think

that steroids only exist in
those sports?
FHSAA Senior Director of
Athletic Operations and
Officials, M. Denarvise
Thornton, said the program
is simply in its first year and
is subject to change next
summer. At that time the
FHSAA will present its find-
ings to the House and they
will proceed from there.
"We've always had a policy
that if a student .used
steroids they would not be a
eligible until they proved it
was no longer in their sys-
tem," Thornton said. "One of
the things that we've heard is
that testing is a strong deter-
rent to students using
steroids. We understand that
surveys throughout the
country (have shown) most
students have had an oppor-
tunity to experiment with
steroids. So hopefully this
will persuade them from
doing so."
I'm confused. There must
be a problem with steroids
at the high school level or
this bill wouldn't have been
passed. But if there is a prob-
lem, why only call out three
sports?
Rep. Marcello Llorente (R-
Miami), who began drafting
the bill four years ago, said it
was the best the state could
do financially. While Texas
has a multi-million dollar
high school steroid testing
policy, Florida is putting
$100,000 towards House Bill
461.
"I'd like to see a program
in place that will effectively
deter high school athletes
from using steroids,"
Llorente said. "How that
(develops) in the future will
be a result of how well this
program goes."
The 2006 Florida Youth
Substance Abuse Survey
reported 1.1 percent of high
school students had experi-
mented with steroids in
their lifetime.
While those numbers are
small (about 650 of students

polled), Llorente, along with
coaches and trainers are not
convinced it isn't a bigger
problem.
"I have not personally wit-
nessed (steroid use)," said
Port St. Lucie High School
athletic trainer Jill Bradford.
"But that doesn't mean it
doesn't exist."
Bradford has worked for
the St. Lucie Medical Center
on top of being an athletic
trainer in St. Lucie County
forr the last three years. She
thinks students should be
educated about the dangers
of using performance-
enhancing drugs beside
what they see on TV While
steroid related health issues
like liver failure and heart
disease concern her the
most, it's the emotional
mood swings steroids cause
that she feels goes unmen-
tioned.
"One of my concerns is
aggressive behavior. Who
else are they endangering?"
Bradford said. "We're not
just talking about one child,
but other children and their
well-being."
With the FHSAA admitting
random steroid testing to
players in baseball, football
and weightlifting, the num-
ber of athletes taking
steroids in those sports will
go down. As Thornton said,
the fear of getting caught will
do a lot.
But what is there to pre-
vent a star basketball player,
who plays football too and
takes steroids, to drop the
pigskin and "concentrate"
on basketball so he won't get
tested?
"I certainly think that is a
possibility," Llorente said. "I
guess that is a loophole... If
this becomes a more perma-
nent problem, we can get a
more adequate testing."
The same loophole could
work for a track star on the
cusp of big college scholar-
ship.
Are we so quick to forget
that the track world is pollut-
ed with doping scandals?
Olympic medal winners Tim
Montgomery and Marion
Jones are just two examples
of US track stars linked to
the now famous BALCO
case that implemented San
Francisco Giants slugger
Barry Bonds.
(If you still don't think
Bonds used steroids, look at
a picture from 1992 and
now.)
If the state of Florida is
going to make a high school
steroid policy, it should test
everyone.

Port St. Lucie Base-
ball holding tryouts

The Port St. Lucie Mets
travel baseball team is hold-

fall season. Tryouts will be
held at Lawnwood Sports
complex onAAug. 4-5 from 10
a.m. to 1 p.m. for the 11-

and-under team. The 16-
and-under team will hold

p.m. to 5 p.m.
Port St. Lucie Mets travel

cant commitment on both
the player and their family.

tryouts to be held

2008 season will be held

p.m.
Legacy Dance team is
looking for female and
male dancers between the
ages of 11- and 18-years-
old. Dance experience is a
plus but not required.


Steroids
From page B12
Not just football players,
baseball players and
weightlifters.
Another question I had
when I read through the bill
was, why is there only one
female sport being tested?
Minus the two or three girls
who try to be a place-kicker
for the football team, girls'
weightlifting, happens to be
one of the most popular and
fastest-growing sports on
the Treasure Coast.
Why test baseball players
and not test softball players?
Steroids help players hit the
ball farther. Last time I
checked, that was important


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.

Listen, I'm not here to
bash the FHSAA for imple-
menting the new testing
policy. In fact, I applaud
them for trying to attack an
issue before it becomes a
problem. But I think the way
they are going about it is
wrong. If you're going to test
high school student-ath-

Test them all.
