Council sets road projects despite tight budget


Discussions also
held on fate of
city workers
By KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE The
City Council last week
approved $59 million in
new road projects and dis-
cussed funding priorities
with the expected loss of
revenue due to the recent
property tax reforms.
Projects approved by the
council during a special
meeting held July 10,
included additional seg-
ments of the Crosstown
Parkway, interchanges at
Interstate 95 and Becker
Road and improvements
to the interchange at 1-95
and Gatlin Boulevard.
"This is a significant,
significant undertaking,"
said City Manager Don
Cooper.
The city has 18 major
road projects under way at
a cost of $250 million.

city hall

City needs
space; Harrell,
chamber
forced out

BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE In
an effort to provide
more room for staff,
Port St. Lucie officials
are asking two City Hall
tenets to move out.
The City Council
directed City Manger
Don Cooper to send let-
ters to state Representa-
tive Gayle Harrell and
the St. Lucie County
Chamber of Commerce,
asking them to move
out of their offices in
City Hall. The space is
needed fof staff, and it
saves the city money to
expand inside the cur-
rent building, rather
than building additions
to City Hall. '
- Rep. Harrell will
receive a 60-day notice,
while the Chamber of
Commerce gets three
months.
"I'm disappointed for
the constituents," Rep.
Harrell, R-Port St. Lucie,
) See OFFICES, Al 1


Some of the projects will
be funded by developers
per annexation agree-
ments, while the rest are
funded by bonds that are
repaid from taxes.
The Crosstown Parkway
is being funded by a voter-
approved $165 million
bond, which will be paid
back through property
taxes. Mr. Cooper indicat-
ed taxes might have to go
up to ensure the bond is
repaid.
"We have an obligation
to increase the millage to
pay the bond," Mr. Cooper
said.
The millage rate is a tax-
ing unit levied by munici-
palities that determines
how much tax money is
collected. Port St. Lucie
has one mill dedicated in
its taxes to repay the
Crosstown Parkway bond.
The state Legislature
recently passed property
tax legislation that
required Port St. Lucie to
roll back it budgets to 2006
levels and reduce its budg-


et an additional 9 percent-
age.
Voters will also have the
chance to change the
homestead exemption in
January, which would fur-
ther reduce the amount of
money flowing into city
coffers. The super-exemp-
tion would have a majority
of homeowners pay prop-
erty taxes on 25 percent of
the value of their homes.
Because of the recent
changes in property taxes
and the possibility of fur-
ther reductions, Mr. Coop-
er asked the council for
direction so he can begin
working with staff on the
2007-2008 fiscal year
budget, which begins Oct.
1. A main point Mr. Coop-
er wanted direction on is
the fate of city jobs.
"I believe we will get
through the next fiscal
year if we tighten our belts
and will not have to lay off
workers," Mr. Cooper said.
"If the constitutional
amendment (about the
super-exemptions) pass-


"I believe we will get through the next fiscal
year if we tighten our belts and will not have
to lay off workers."


better than a no-hour
week. It's hard to find
jobs right now."
Councilman Christo-
pher Cooper said he
wants to see more police
and code enforcement
officers added to the
city's payroll. He feels
that job cuts will hurt
Port St. Lucie.
"I don't think people
moved here to watch the
city go back to the 1980s,"
Councilman Cooper said.
"I don't want to see us
dismantle what we've
done over the last few
years."
The council will discuss
the budget further at
their bi-annual retreat,
scheduled for Aug. 9 and
10, at the Port St. Lucie
Community Center.

Though his decades-
old dream of becoming
fire chief had just
become reality, Ron Par-
rish, with tears welled in
his eyes, could only cele-
brate with his family for
a short while July11.
Fifteen minutes after
the Board of Fire Com-
missioners named him
the new head of the St.
Lucie County Fire Dis-
trict following a set of
public interviews, Chief
Parrish was in a' meeting
discussing the proposed
$119 million budget.
A Fire District member
since 1985 and para-
medic for the last 24
years, he has experience
in just about every
aspect of the job.
"Having the responsi-

insight to the challenges
and complexities associ-
ated with running a

Vice Mayor Jack Kelly
said he supports a hiring

cutting back hours

"I think our concentra-

Council members said
they do not want to see
layoffs, since many resi-

"A lot of people are

BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE -
May 25 started out as a
normal day for Kim
Hooper.
She was making plans
for her 18th birthday
and hanging out with
her boyfriend. But by
the end of the day, Ms.
Hooper was in the


emergency room, suf-
fering from a stroke.
"Kim was getting
ready to go out with her
boyfriend and she was
complaining of having a
headache," said Terri
Hooper, Kim's mother.
"But those never kept
her down. The next
thing I know, we get a
call from her boyfriend
telling us they were at
the hospital."
Ms. Hooper was nau-
seous and lost feeling in
the left side of her body.

ENDODONTICS
Q: What is endodontics?
A: Endodontics is the field of dentistry that specializes in care of the dental pulp,
the soft material inside the tooth. You may be referred to an endodontist if you
need, for instance, a root canal procedure, which is treatment of the.pulp.
Endodontics is one of nine dental specialty areas recognized by the American .i
Dental Association. The others are": dental public health, including the study of ';
trends, establishment of public health programs and dissemination of .
information; endodontics, which deals with the nerve of the tooth; orthodontics, which involves
straightening teeth; pedodontics, which specializes in the treatment of children; periodontics,
which is concerned with the teeth's supporting structures, namely the gums and jaw,; and the fields
of oral and maxillofacial pathology, radiology and surgery.
All dentists have the same basic training. Specialists go on for post-graduate training. Ask your O
dentist for more information about dental specialty areas, and especially if you might benefit-from
the attention of a specialist.

Jessica Lunsford Act.
The changes, which went
into effect July 1, allow
noninstructional contrac-
tors, such as construction,
workers and vendors, to
bypass formerly mandato-
ry background screenings
provided that, while work-
ing, they remain under the
direct supervision of a
school district employee or
a contractor who has
passed a criminal history
check in the past five years.
Further, contractors are
now exempt from screen-
ing if they work at a site
where students are not
permitted provided the
site is separated from the
remainder of the school
grounds by. a six-foot
chain-link fence.
Prior to the passage of
these amendments to the
Jessica Lunsford Act,,
which was passed in 2005,


contractors who were per-
mitted access on school
grounds when students
were present were required
to undergo fingerprinting
and background screen-
ing.
This proved problematic
for some in the construc-
tion world, especially for
those of foreign descent.
"I don't think there's any
question that English is the
second language of the
majority of workers in the
trade today," said Don San-
tos, past president of the
Treasure Coast Builders
Association. "If you're ask-
ing them to get a back-
ground check, they're
probably, for a number of
reasons, not going to do
that. It makes it difficult for
builders or contractors to
bid on school contracts.
They were so concerned
that they had to go through
such an extensive process
that they were choosing
not'to bid on the schools. It
has a negative affect on the
district because it adds to
the project cost.
"This change was a com-
promise to 'that. It puts
child safety first and fore-
most, while not penalizing
the maintenance and con-
struction side," he said.
Though many nonin-
structional contractors will
now be exempt from the
screening, school districts
may still cross-reference
their names using the
Florida Department of Law
.Enforcement's sex offender
registry. "
Sexual offenders and
predators are not allowed
on school grounds. Con-
tractors convicted of ter-
rorism, murder, kidnap-
ping, sexual misconduct,
any offense related to
lewdness or indecent


exposure, incest and child
abuse or neglect likewise
are not permitted on
school grounds unless
they've received a full par-
don or had their civil rights
restored. If a contractor
convicted of any of these
crimes is found working on
school -grounds, they will
be charged with a third-
degree felony.
In a nutshell, SB 988
makes the process for con-
tractors who are trying to
work with school districts
less onerous, said St. Lucie
County School District
spokeswoman Janice
Karst.
"We've had so much
building and growth," she
said. "This streamlines the
process and enhances the
responsibility of the com-
pany doing business with
the district to monitor
their employees."

New IDs

Though SB 988 eases
background checks for
school contractors, the bill
creates tougher guidelines
for sex offenders when it
comes to identification.
During the month of his
or her drivers license re-
registration, sexual offend-
ers and predators must get
a new license with a
statute number marking
on the front showing that
they're a sex offender or
predator.
After Feb. 1, 2008, it will
be illegal for anyone desig-
nated as a sexual offender
or predator to have a dri-
ver's license or identifica-
tion card that doesn't have
the required marking.

WEEK IN

REVIEW

Water restrictions eased
The South Florida Water Management District
announced last week it is modifying the water restric-
tions for Port St. Lucie.
The city is now under a Modified Phase II restric-
tions, which keeps lawn watering limits at two days a
week, buit other conditions have been lifted.
Recent rains helped put a dent in the drought,
allowing officials with South Florida Water Manage-
ment to ease some of the restrictions.
Residents and businesses still must follow the two-
day-a-week watering scheduled, based on addresses.
Odd numbered addresses can water their lawns
between 4 a.m. and 8 a.m. on Wednesdays and Satur-
days. Even numbered addresses can water between 4
a.m. and 8 a.m. on Thursdays and Sundays.
Although restrictions have been modified, officials
warn that residents should still conserve water.
"With conditions in the Lake Okeechobee Water-
shed so radically different from conditions along the
coast, the district is still in a severe regional water
shortage," said Eric Buermann, chairman of the South
Florida Water Management District board. "Even with
modified water restrictions in some areas, we must
still practice wise water use and conservation. Resi-
dents along the coast need to be prepared for the pos-
sibility that these modified restrictions may only rep-
resent a temporary reprieve. If water stages in Lake
Okeechobee and other water bodies do not climb to
acceptable levels by the end of the current wet season,
we may find ourselves in full Phase II or Phase III
restrictions again during the next dry season."
More information about the water restrictions can be
found at www.sfwmd.gov.
PSL man killed in West Palm Beach robbery
A Port St. Lucie man was shot and killed last week,
while dropping off a friend in West Palm Beach.
Errol Laguerre, 50, was killed July 8, when a 16-year-
old boy and another person robbed Mr. Laguerre and
his fiance of $40.
Kyle Hutchins, ofWest Palm ]Beach, was arrested and
charged with first-degree murder with a firearm and
armed robbery.
The other person involved in the robbery and shoot-
ing is still being sought by the West Palm Beach Police
Department.

Officer Program, the
leading program avail-
able to fire professionals.
Chief Parrish, 51, the
assistant chief since
2004, has served as inter-
im chief since Chief Jay
Sizemore retired in April.
The new chief even
once did a stint as the
district's interim clerk
treasurer, a position
which gave him the
budgeting experience
he'll use to help the
organization get through
the crunch being
brought on by property
tax reform.
"We're going to have to
look closer at how we
provide the service,"
Chief Parrish said. "But I
don't ever want to com-
promise the safety of the
citizens we protect.
That's our No. 1 job."
The district's ability to
accomplish that job'will
increase next year with
the addition of two new
fire stations in Port St.
Lucie, one in Tradition
and one at McCall Road
and Port St. Lucie Boule-
vard, along with 50 new
employees to staff them.
The new employees will
bring the total number in
the district to roughly
490.
With the project draw-
ings already. done, the
district is looking for
contractors to build the
project, said Chief Par-
rish, who played an intri-
cate part in the construc-
tion of the past five
county fire stations and
the district's new admin-
istrative complex on Mil-
ner Drive. The chief said
construction on the new
departments should start
by the beginning of the
fiscal year and be fin-
ished somewhere around
mid 2008.
"I think that will cover
us for a period of time,"
he said. "If there's more
growth, we're going to
have to deal with that."
Chief Parrish was
selected for the position
over Deputy Chief and
Fire Marshall Buddy
Emerson, a 14-year
member of the district
and Navy veteran, and
Deputy Chief Chris
Bushman, who has been
with the district since
1979, and now also
teaches fire science at
Indian River Community
College.

So many rants...

After reading the Rants and Raves column in your July 6
issue, I found myself wanting to respond to so many of the
rants. So here it goes with the ones I decided to respond to.
First, regarding the Lennard Road extension. I cannot
believe that this town would put wild hogs, and whatever
else resides in the Savannah's, above the safety of its senior
citizens.
To turn Lennard Road into a virtual racetrack for Port St.
Lucie High School students and put our precious senior citi-
zens at risk is the worst idea I have ever heard. To refer to
them as "crying residents" is an insult.
Since the expansion in this town is to the west of U.S. 1,
why destroy a community to the east? I shudder to think
how many senior citizens will be mowed down by cars flying
down the road.
If the residents of the Savannah Club do not mind waiting
at the light at U.S. 1 and Savannah Club Road, why should
you care how long the backup is? I drive U.S. 1 all the time
and never get backed up by a red light. The light changes
with the same frequency as the other lights on U.S. 1. Not
everyone turning onto Savannah Club Road is going into the
Savannah Club. Many of those turning at the light are going
into the Hess station on the corner. The only way into the
Hess station from the southbound side of U.S. 1 is to make a
turn onto Savannah Club Road. So, blaming all the residents
of Savannah Club for the backup at the light is just plain silly.
Regarding the rant on house numbers not being posted
on houses, I wholeheartedly agree.
I deliver papers in the middle of the night, and you would
not believe how many houses do not display numbers on
either their house or their mailbox. This is a problem all
throughout Port St. Lucie.
For the person who wrote in about their inconsiderate
neighbor, I have one suggestion.
Call Code Enforcement. He will be cited for the all the
debris on his property and given a date on which they will
return to see if he has complied.
If he has not, he will be hauled into Code Enforcement
court and be given fines.
In response to the person who wrote, "Welcome immi-
grants as we have done in the past," I think you are missing
the point. No one objects to immigrants; this country was
built by immigrants. Even the pilgrims on the Mayflower
could be considered "immigrants." What people object to
are illegal immigrants.
When my grandparents and great-grandparents arrived
in this great country, they were required to enter the country
by way of Ellis Island. They were required to have a sponsor,
a friend, or a relative that would be willing to give them a
place to stay. They had to have a promise of a job. They will-
ingly became- United States citizens. They did not sneak
across the border and then claim that they were doing jobs
that Americans didn't want.
What illegal immigrants are doing is taking the jobs at a
less-than-living wage and working for cash.
Roofing and construction jobs are not unwanted by legal
citizens, but go past a construction site or a roofing job, and
you will not hear English being spoken.
The businesses that employ illegal immigrants are no bet-
ter. Rather than give a job to legal resident, immigrant or
natural bor, they prefer to pay cheap wages to illegals. If
there were no cheap wage jobs for illegals, there would not
be illegal immigrants,
So I say, one of the ways to combat illegal immigration is
to go after the businesses that employ them and fine them
heavily.
That will make it cheaper to hire a legal resident at a legal
wage than to pay heavy fines for employing illegal immi-
grants at cheap wages.
And this ends my response to these rants.

Dog deposits

This is about people who have animals.
I do love animals, but when you have people coTning
from three, and four blocks away to bring their dogs
across the street from where I live to do their business
and then walk off and leave it there, it presents a problem.

I followed one gentleman who has two dogs, I believe
they are schnauzers. He came from McAllister Lane to
Montana Terrace to Hampshire Lane, directly across the
street from me, and had his dog "deposit." He then
walked off and left it. I approached him and told him that
there is a code that says that you must pick up after your
animals. He continued to walk on his way, with a "Yeah,
yeah."
I called the code people about it and was told that
there is nothing they can do about it unless I take a pic-
ture. OK. I followed the man home and then called code.
I don't know what to do after that. They claim they will do
something about it.
My problem here is that people with animals show so
much disrespect for other people's property, bringing
their animals blocks away to do their "business" in front
of your house. It doesn't make any sense.There is a code,
and you must carry a "pooper scooper" bag. People just
don't care about that, I guess. It is a dilemma I am left
with. It's not just one person; it is about four or five. It is a
vacant lot, and they do it on the swale. I guess they think
it is OK.
There was a sign saying that there is a code, and they
disregarded that. In fact, they tore it down and threw it
away. I parked my vehicle on the property with signs on
it. That didn't seem to help, either.
The only thing that seemed to help was when I went
across the street and scooped the dog deposits onto the
road.
Perhaps when they walk, they step in it and get the idea
of what happens when somebody steps in it and brings it
into my house.

The water is flowing

My comment is for the poor people that got fined
for watering their lawns in Port St. Lucie. They should
go down to Elrose St., in Sandpiper. The city has had a
leak there for nine days now. People have called this
problem in, but nothing has been done. They have
not touched this in nine days. Nine days of water
flowing, and they don't get fined. This is really a
shame for those people who got ticketed.

Watch the school board

I urge parents to stay alert and keep vigilant about
what the St. Lucie School Board teaches our children
kindergarten through 12 about sex with their new all
inclusive sex education curriculum.
I find the books that the Fort Lauderdale commission-
ers have just ruled to allow in the Fort Lauderdale public
school system horrible. Some of the titles about the
homosexual lifestyle are extremely shocking. Will our
local school officials shove similar ideas into our chil-
dren's minds?
We have many liberals serving the public trust in our
area on the east Treasure Coast. Just what do we allow
them to teach our kids? Will it be how to put condoms on
cucumbers?

Congratulations, school board

I would like to congratulate the school board and all of
the planners who had a hand in the school location in
the county.


With the addition of Fort Pierce Central on 25th Street,
we will now have six school zones on the second most
traveled north/south thoroughfare in the county.
Good job.

Police officers and lifeguards are needed

I recently went to a St. Lucie Mets game, and there were
approximately 3,500 people at this game. There had to be at)
least ten police officers patrolling in and about the stadium.
On Memorial Day, I was at J. C. Park, on Southbeach in
Hutchinson Island, and there had to be 5,000 people there
and no police officers.
There was not one police officer, no lifeguards, with at
least 500 to 800 kids in the water.
What is the city of Fort Pierce thinking? Why was there no
police office stationed there with a crowd like that?
They are very lucky something didn't happen there. If
something had happened, it would have been totally out of
control for the small-time police department to handle.'
While I am at it, I'd like to say something about Jetty Park.
We are going to invest a lot of money in Jetty Park. We just
put all of that fresh sand there. Do you realize that this is
another park that has no lifeguards? We are trying to lure
families there, even with the downtown trolley having a stop
there, and we don't have a lifeguard there.
I don't understand the city commissioners. Obviously they
do not go to the beach. They talk about the beach, but they
must not actually ever go to the beach. They must not have
any children that play in the surf. I guess they think they
don't heed a lifeguard there.

Taken again

When Waste Pro was seeking the contract for Port. St.
Lucie, I distinctly remember the mayor saying that using
the tax bill collection method would enable the citizens
to save money because the cost would be reduced to
approximately $17 a month.
This, collected annually, would come to $204.
Where did $246.73 come from?
It looks like another shafting for the gullible taxpayer.

We need a cure for Mt. Trashmore

This is in regard to the huge and growing Mt. Trashmore in
St. Lucie County.
There is lots of serious money being spent on the serious-
ness of the impact of the method of melting everything with
intense heat. That can't be good for people who live here, or
anything else that lives here.
Why don't they consider the very simple solution that
every other state and city has used to resolve this problem?
Recycle, recycle, recycle. It's a very good small business, with
a tax base, and employees.
I can't recycle my microwave, computer, cell phone, and
lots of other totally broken electronic equipment. I called the
trash collection company, and I was told to put it out on the
curb. They said it would be taken to the dump with the trash.


Amazing.


Where are the flags?


My rave is for the U.S. troops and all that they are
doing.

Letters


Protect our youth

We need more help for our youth to save them from
those that forget them.
We need to stand up for our young people, and give
them the wisdom to know right from wrong.
We need to win back our youth from those that want to
arm them.
Believe me, they are worth saving, and we must never


let our youth down.
We must help all races, creeds, and colors get thehelp
that they need.
We must teach them that someone cares..*
We need them to learn that peace is golden.
Hard times can be rough, but determination with wis-
dom will prevail.
We must stand up for what is right, and never weaken
under any pressure.


If we keep a strong morale, a strong America will let
freedom ring.
We must stand up to those that target; and try to intim-
idate, our youth.
We must take care of our youth. We don't want them in
jails and mental hospitals across the nation.

Rants & Raves
From page A6
My rant is that I can't buy a U.S. flag anywhere any-
more. Not the stickers, or the things to put on your car,
etc. Mine wore out, and I have been looking all over the
place for a replacement. I don't understand why no mer-
chants anywhere seem to sell placards, sticker, or flags.
I'm hoping that if 1 say something, some merchant will
begin to stock these items. I would like to continue to
show my support.

How about a postal address

I, and I am sure many, many others, feel discriminated
against because we don't have access to e-mail, fax
machines, or computers to write to or connect with com-
panies, contests, etc.
We do have telephones, and we can write letters, if we
have an address.
Many times, the only address given is an. e-mail
address.

House numbers should be posted

In the Rants and Raves, I read an article that said that
house numbers need to be posted.
I want to agree with the person who put that in. I put an
article in myself about house numbers being posted.
It is very important that these numbers are visible now
that we are coming into hurricane season, and for what-
ever might happen. It is very important for this to be
done so that emergency vehicles, rescuers, police offi-
cers, and so forth can find the houses.
I haven't seen any improvement. Something needs to
be done.

Immigration bill

I also thank God that the immigration bill was defeat-
ed.
One pet peeve that most of us have is them not paying
taxes, expecting free health care, dental care, etc. Then
you go to the store, and they pull out hundred dollar bills
and buy much finer things that I will never afford to have.
We have never been in another country where you
could press 1 to get your own language on the telephone.
As many people have said in the Rants, "You are in the
United States of America where we speak English."
At least have the decency to speak to us in our lan-
guage, as you are robbing us of all these services that we
as Americans can surely use.
Not happy? Go home!

Keep him behind bars

I am a concerned citizen, and I read the article about
the father fighting to keep his daughter's killers behind
bars.
I want to say that I have both written and called the
Parole Commission to keep this animal locked up.
I urge all of the readers of the Hometown News to do
the same.
,I also want to add that the killers DOC No. is 070680.
That is important to include in your letter when you
write to keep this man behind bars.
The commission's address is 2601 Blairstone Road,
Bldg. C, Tallahassee, FL 32399-6563.

No response received

I called Sen. Ken Pruitt, and Sen. Gail Harrell about the


gouging we have been being subjected to ever since the
hurricanes.
I want Code Enforcement to handle it.
No one seems to respond. I haven't gotten a response
from either of them.
I have been calling and calling. I am told that they will
be given the message, but no one responds.
How do I get someone to respond to a citizens phone
calls?

Vehicle 'decorations' are questionable

I am appalled by individuals who dangle artificial male
genitalia from the rear of their vehicles (usually trucks).
It didn't really bother me that much; I thought to each
his own, until I saw a more realistic set.
They were extremely large and flesh colored with pubic
hair.
Where has human decency gone? What message is that
sending our children?
I feel tempted to sharpen a pair of wire cutters and cas-
trate a few cars and trucks! Guess it's time for me to "to
get 'er done."

I do disapprove of illegals

This is in response to the person who says we shouldn't
be against illegal immigrants.
OK, so when one of the illegals drives without either a
license or insurance and hits you and seriously injures
you or kills someone you love, do you still tell us that we
should not stop wanting them in our country?
Or what about when an illegal can sue for American
civil rights when they get fired from a job?
How about when an illegal takes all the available jobs
and collects our social security?
I'm not sorry I feel that all illegals should be deported.
They heed to apply to stay here legally.
It really irks me when I'm speaking English, and some-
one tells me that I have to speak more clearly so they can
understand me. Hello? Where are we? I don't think so!
They need to learn to speak English so I can understand
them!
What also gets me is how when the illegals are here
they have the nerve to complain about America and are
disrespectful to Americans.
Why are they here then?
To take advantage of us Americans and our screwed up
government system who coddles you?
I agree with the other ranter; get out of our country.
I have family who came here from other countries, and
they did it legally, and they were so proud to become a
citizen, legally.
What ever happened to the pride of becoming an
American citizen?

A way to recoup taxes

Why isn't the state of Florida considering mandatory
licensing for boaters as a way to recoup some tax rev-
enues?
If we need a license to drive a car, motorcycle, semi
tractor-trailers, not to mention fishing licenses, etc., why
should boaters be exempt?
Also mandatory training in operation and safety might
be in the best interest of all boaters, given the accidents
that occur on the water, again increased revenue.
One can't drive a car without training of some sort.

Flip-flops are dangerous

Regarding the wearing of flip-flops for uses other than
for their intended purpose such as going to the beach, or on
short excursions to the mailbox, or the like, I agree with the
writer that they are dangerous to wear.


I am somewhat younger, 39, and so my concern is for the
children.
Apparently, some mothers don't realize, or don't care, that
in order to prevent injuries, a developing child needs to wear
shoes that are stable.
That means that the foot is entirely covered and without
high heels. Yes, they manufacture shoes, even sandals, with
heels for children as young as two. Yes, you read that correct-
ly, age of 2.
Corporations manufacture unsafe shoes for extremely
young children, and worse yet, mothers buy them.
I would like to hear from mothers who enable a child
younger than 14 to wear unsafe shoes.
I want to know what your mentality and/or common
sense is, or do you have any?

Are the Japanese planning an invasion?

A few weeks ago on the evening news I heard two different
newscasts stating ... Japan's government has recently issued
a new law that says for all of its citizens who are married cou-
ples and have at least two children now if they will have a
third child and a fourth child within five years, they will get
$4,000 each for each of the two additional children. Then
within that same five-year period, if they agree to have an
additional two children, they will get $40,000 each for those
two additional children. That's $88,000 within a five-year
period.
Japan is such a small, crowded nation. Their homes are
crowded, one on top of another.
What is the government thinking that they would give that
much money to have that much population in 15 to 20 years
to reach adulthood.
Maybe they are planning another Pearl Harbor sneak
attack someplace?
Or, maybe they're planning (to) infiltrate another body of
land, such as the United States or Australia.
Editor's note: ABC News reported on the Japanese govern-
ment putting pressure on businesses to boost the birthrate in
the country. Instead of a law, Japanese businesses, such as the
telecom company Softbank, electronics giant Matsushita and
Bandai, the maker of Power Rangers, would give bonuses to
its employees who had more children. The amount of money
varies from company to company.
According to www.allbusiness.com, '"Japan has one of the
lowest birthrates in the world with only 1.38 children per
Japanese woman. Demographers estimate that the current
population of126 million will drop to 105 million by2050."
However, baby bonuses are becoming more common, espe-
cially in Europe.
Spain, Scandinavia and France are among the countries
offering monetary incentives to raise the birthrates
(www.gulfnews.com).

Who are the winners in this war?

,In the time of war, there are few winners but many los-
ers. When the war ends, there is a winner.
Says (Sen.) Harry (Reid), "We've lost this (Iraq) war."
He's probably right, and if so, who is the winner? Radi-
cal Islamics, liberal Democrats, or was it a team effort?
Clearly these are the two (who) will win because the
American military, as good as (it is), can't fight both.
So let's get this straight. If America wins this war, then
the Democrats lose in 2008?
They're more interested in power than seeing us win
the war.
As far as I'm concerned, they are traitors.

In many ways, plan-
ning for non-tradi-
tional families is
much more problematic
than for traditional
families. The tax system
is geared toward tradi-
tional families and many
things that are simply
taken for granted with
traditional families can
become major issues
with non-traditional
families.
Usually, non-traditional
families get the short end
of the stick when it
comes to tax planning.
For example, there is no
gift or estate tax marital
deduction available for
non-traditional families,
whereas spouses can give
or leave each other an
unlimited amount
without facing tax.
Further, retirement
plans such as 401(k) s
that are made payable to
a non-spouse beneficiary
do not qualify for a
spousal rollover.
The term "rollover" can
be confusing because it
is used in two very
different situations.
First, after your death, a
spouse can "rollover"
your IRA or retirement
plan assets into his or
her own IRA. Essentially,
the retirement assets
become as though the
spouse had contributed
the assets himself or
herself.
For example, while
other beneficiaries must
start taking minimum
required distributions
shortly after the plan
owner's death, the
spouse can wait to take
distributions until after
reaching age 70. Only a
spouse can do this type

of rollover.
There is also another
type of rollover: from one
plan to another plan.
For example, after
termination of your
employment, with most
plans you can "rollover"
your employer retire-
ment account, such as
your 401(k), into an IRA.
This is sometimes called
a "rollout."
A surviving spouse this
year can do this type of
rollover as well. Begin-
ning this year, non-
spouse beneficiaries can
also rollover retirement
assets to an IRA.
While the distinction
between different types
of retirement plans often
seems meaningless, after
death it can make a big.
difference. As a result,
the ability to rollover
assets from an employer
plan to an IRA can be
quite important.
Many employer plans
require that all funds be
distributed within a few
years of the employee's
death. This allows the
employer's plan to keep
its administration costs
lower.
However, this would


not allow anyone but a
very old beneficiary to
stretch out retirement
plan distributions for
their life expectancy.
Now, thanks to the
Pension Protection Act of
2006, beginning this year,
'any beneficiary, not just
a spouse, can force the
employer's plan to roll
the money to an IRA in
the name of the dece-
dent.
From there, the benefi-
ciary can take the distri-
butions over his or her
life expectancy.
This new "non-spousal
rollover" does not allow a
non-spousal beneficiary
to roll the assets into his
or her own account.
However, it does allow
them to move them to an
IRA where they can
stretch out distributions.
This change helps non-
traditional families take
advantage of the income
tax-deferral benefits of
retirement benefits.
Whatever your family's
situation, a qualified
estate planning and
retirement benefits
planning attorney can
help you plan for the
future and walk you
through the process
when the time comes.

Ideas for breakfast and lunch



pack in the nutrition and fun


Hello, smart shop-
pers. In the June 29
column, the recipe
for the flag cake had a
misprint. For the topping,
2 to 4 cups whipped
topping may be used.
In the cream filling, the
whole cup not half a cup of
topping must be used.
It's summertime and
breakfast and lunch ideas
are bordering on monoto-
ny.
Have fun with your kids.
Try some of my ideas and
let them help. They will
feel so special and will eat
what they make.
Good sandwich ideas
such as peanut butter and
fruit spread, not jelly, on
whole wheat bread have
proven to be a nutritious
lunch.
Cut down on your child's
sugar intake. Turkey, roast
beef, boiled ham, tuna and
egg salad made with a light
mayonnaise (try Hellman's
light) are good choices.
If yours don't like
sandwiches, yogurt (avoid
the fruit on the bottom;
too much added sugar),
string cheese, cut up fresh
fruits such as melons,
strawberries, blueberries,
etc., served with salt-free
pretzel sticks to spear the
fruit (how grown-up can
you get)? They're delicious
dipped in yogurt.
Try baby carrots, dried
fruits, nuts, gelatin,
bananas and low-fat
regular or chocolate milk.
Another neat idea is
"ants on a stick."
Let them stuff a celery
stalk with peanut butter
topped with raisins or low-
fat cream cheese topped
with sliced olives.
English muffin pizza is a
great lunch. Spread
tomato sauce on a toasted
muffin, top with oregano,
cheese and any vegetable
they choose. Heat in the
oven.
Try my recipes and make
some play clay. You'll have
fuin as well. None of these
recipes are in my cook-
book. Remember, they're
only young once.


Until next week...
Words to live by: Hating
someone is like taking a
poison and wishing they
would die.

BANANA SURPRISE

My daughter, Kim, came
up with this one.
Toast an English muffin,
preferably whole grain.
Spread halves lightly with
peanut butter, sprinkle
with wheat germ, drizzle
with honey and top with
sliced bananas.
You can make faces with
raisins or any other fruit.

CHEESE SURPRISE

Toast 2 slices of bread.
Top with cheese slices and
sliced tomatoes if you
choose. Place under the
broiler and broil until
cheese is bubbly. Serve cut
up with a little mustard for
dipping.

SOFTBOILEID EGGS
WITH 'CHIPPIES'

Soft boiled (cooked)
eggs served with 'chippies'
were my favorite as a kid.
Come to think of it, they
still are.
Place eggs in small pan,
cover with cold water and
sprinkle in some salt (it
helps prevent eggs from
cracking). When water
boils, lower heat and cook
for 3 minutes.
Remove eggs from pan,
run under cold water to
stop the cooking.
To serve, rap the center
of the egg with a dull knife
and scoop egg into a small
dessert dish.
Add a little butter or
butter substitute and, for
an adult, salt and pepper.
Butter a slice of untoast-
ed bread and break little
pieces of bread into the
eggs (chippies).
Yum! You can also use an
eggcup and eat the egg
directly from the shell.
Not as much fun; no
chippies!

Cut a hole in the center

HOT DOG PENNIES

PLAY CLAY

This recipe, from Arm &

safe. Make ornaments for

2 cups Arm & Hammer
baking soda (one
1-pound box)
1 cup corn starch
1 1/4 cups cold water

said. "I've enjoyed being at
City Hall. It's very conven-
ient."
Rep. Harrell said having
her local office in City
Hall allowed residents to
"one-stop shop" for serv-
ices. Residents who come
to the building to pay
their utility bill or speak
with the council could
then go to her office with
state concerns.
"It's.a shame we won't
be as convenient," Rep.
Harrell said.
The St. Lucie County
Chamber of Commerce
has had a presence at
City Hall for the last year.
It is manned by volun-
teers, who provide resi-
dents with information
about the community.
Linda Cox, executive
director of the Chamber
of Commerce, said the
City Hall location was
ideal.
"We don't have a lot of
traffic at our main office
(in St. Lucie West)," Mrs.
Cox said. -
She added that she will
miss the 20 volunteers
that man the chamber's
office at City Hall.
"They've done a phe-
nomenal job," Mrs. Cox


said. "I feel sad for them
because they love what
they do, and I hope that
they will continue to vol-
unteer at City Hall."
Mrs. Cox added that the
chamber plans to keep
an informational board
at City Hall, so residents
can still get the informa-
tion they need.
Rep. Harrell said she is.
now looking for a new
office and is looking at
space in the chamber's
new main office in St.
Lucie West.
"We have space in our
office (in St. Lucie West)
and we're looking for
someone, maybe a non-
profit, to fill it," Mrs. Cox
said. "But it is smaller
than Rep. Harrell's cur-
rent space."
The St. Lucie County
Chamber of Commerce's
main office is located at
1850 S.W. Fountainview
Blvd., Suite 201, in St.
Lucie West.

RUBIES


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

From page A1
Medical Center ran
numerous tests and dis-
covered she had a stroke.
Ms. Hooper was then
transported to Palms
West Hospital in Loxa-
hatchee where she saw a
pediatric neurologist.
There, Ms. Hooper con-
tinued to have mini-
strokes and her brain
began to swell.
"The doctors said she
was in God's hands and
there was not much they
could do for her," said
Mark Hooper, Kim's dad.
During Ms. Hooper's
week at Palms West Hos-
pital, she celebrated her
18th birthday with family
and friends. They had a
brownie cake with bal-
loons and party hats at
the hospital.
"I was just thinking,
'wow, I'm alive for my
18th birthday,'" Ms.
Hooper said.
After a week at Palms
West Hospital, Ms. Hoop-
er was transferred to
Shands at the University
of Florida in Gainesville.
She arrived on a Friday
and by Sunday her eyes
were bulging out of her
head, Mrs. Hooper said.


"They took her in for
emergency surgery
because her brain was so
swollen," Mrs. Hooper
said. "Two-thirds of the
right side of her brain
were dead and doctors
thought they would have
to remove that part of the
brain. But opening the
skull released the pres-
sure and they didn't have
to remove any part."
Because Ms. Hooper
was so young to suffer
from a stroke, doctors
questioned everyone as
to what happened.
"Kim was always crack-
ing her neck (turning her
head from side to side)
and that caused a dissec-
tion of the carotid artery
her doctor told us," Mrs.
Hooper said.
"When we told them
her and her brother con-
stantly crack their necks,
the doctors'said it makes
sense," Mr. Hooper
added. "They told us
when you crack your
neck fast, it can tear the
artery."

School has had to learn
how to walk and speak
properly again. Ms.
Hooper currently lives at
Lawnwood Regional
Medical Center and
Heart Institute where she
receives intensive thera-
pies from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
every day.
On the weekends she
can leave for several
hours to visit friends and
family. Right now, she is
concentrating on getting
better.
"I want to be able to
come home," Ms. Hooper
said. "It's been hard. I
miss being able to hang
out with my family and
friends, and being inde-
pendent."
Ms. Hooper is in a
wheelchair and can walk
with assistance. Her par-
ents are renovating their
Port St. Lucie home to
accommodate their
daughter's wheelchair
with the help of The Love
Doctors Charity.
Before her stroke, Ms.
Hooper was planning to
attend Indian River Com-
munity College to
become an emergency
medical technician. But
now she is considering
something else.
"Since I've been in
therapy, I've changed my
focus to become a recre-
ational therapist," Ms.
Hooper said.
While Ms. Hooper con-
tinues her path of reha-
bilitation, her family is
amazed that she is still
alive.
"She's a tough one,"
said Mark Hooper Jr.,
Kim's older brother.
"Wheh it happened,
those were the scariest
days of my life. It was
hard to see her in the
room. She is the
strongest person I know."

er them but you've been

possibly borrow their weed
wacker to trim up one area

Also, how great that they
have a leaf blower. Could
you'borrow that to blow the

As for the junk up against

new to Florida and don't
realize what projectiles junk
becomes in a hurricane?
So, offer your shed or

of life, what's a few weeds.
Leaves fly around every-

your worries. Should there
be a hurricane, your home
could be a projectile.
Folks, you don't need a

Coping with insurance companies and body shops


This column originally
ran in the July 28, 2006,
edition of Hometown
News.

I guess one of the worst
things that can
happen to us in our
driving experience is to
be involved in an acci-
dent.
Hopefully there are no
injuries, but we still have
to cope with our insur-
ance company and


maybe the other party's
insurance company.
We also have to select a
body shop or accept the
one recommended by
our insurance company.
After you notify your
insurance company of
your accident, your first
big decision is to select a
body shop. This is every
bit as important as
selecting the right doctor
or dentist.
Most of the time, your


insurance company will
recommend a body shop.
Consider their recom-
mendation, but also do
your own due diligence.
If you choose the body
shop, that body shop is
working for you and is
your advocate, not your
insurance company.
Remember that your
insurance company is
the one paying for your
repairs, and one of their
very important consider-

nations is the cost of
repairing your car.
They, of course, are
interested in a quality
repair too, but cost is, at
least, an equal considera-
tion. Your No. I concern
should be quality, not
cost. Your insurance
company may tell you
that it's OK to have your
car repaired at the body
shop of your choice, but
they "won't guarantee the
repairs."
A reputable body shop
will guarantee their own
repairs and you don't
need two guarantees. I
strongly recommend that
you give first considera-
tion to a body shop
owned by a franchised
dealer of the make of
your car. This body shop
will have an advantage of
faster availability of
factory parts, more
experience repairing
your make and model
and the technicians will
usually be better trained
in repairing your make of
car.
Obviously, a car that
has been damaged and
repaired is worth less
than one that has not
been repaired. Even with
a quality repair, a late
model car with substan-
tial repairs could be
worth thousands of
dollars less when you
trade it in. This sad fact is
a very good reason you
should be sure that your
car is ruled a "total" by
your insurance company
if it meets their criteria.
A car that will cost 70
percent of its current
market value to repair is
usually considered a total
and your insurance
company should replace
your car, not repair it.
If it's a close call result-
ing in a decision to repair
the vehicle, you should
get a second opinion.


EARL STEWART
On Cars

This is the time when it's
good to have a body shop
that you chose that is
beholden to you, not
your insurance company.
Your insurance policy
will dictate the parts the
insurance company may
use in repairing your car.
It is highly desirable to
use OEM parts (parts
manufactured by the
company that built your
car) as opposed to "after-
market" parts often
manufactured in Taiwan
or another foreign
county.
These parts are copies
of OEM parts and much
cheaper than the genuine
parts. They may not fit as
well or have the correct
tolerances. You should
find out before you
.purchase your policy if it
will provide for OEM
parts. If your insurance
company won't authorize
OEM parts, ask if you can
pay the difference. It is
worth the investment.
It is very difficult to
forecast accurately the
time it will take to com-
plete a major repair. This
is because there is -
usually hidden damage
that is impossible to
detect until the car has
been disassembled.
When hidden damage
is detected, the body
shop must call your

insurance company's
adjustor to authorize
supplemental work. This
work may require parts
that were not anticipated
in the initial repair and
have to be ordered. There
is no one to blame for
this; it's just a fact of
collision repair.
The bottom line is to
'expect delays when your
car is having a major
repair.
A quality body shop
will "under promise and
over deliver" by building
in some extra time to
allow for the inevitable
supplemental repairs.
Be sure you understand
what degree of rental
reimbursement coverage
you have. It varies from
policy to policy. Some
policies have no rental
car reimbursement,
some have partial and
some complete. In a
major repair, you can be
without your car for
more than a month.
In summary, choose
your insurance company
carefully and read your
policy carefully before
you commit. Choose
your body shop just as
carefully. You need a
quality body shop owned
by the franchised dealer
for your make of car that
will be an advocate for
your interests, more than
your insurance compa-
ny's.

but all have same goal for the user


One of the things that
make computers so
wonderfully versa-
tile is also one of the, main
things that can make them
so confusing.
Computers have this
often baffling ability to
accomplish the same task
a number of different
ways.
This leads to no end of
confusion, because you
can talk to five different
people about the same
task and all five people can
come with a legitimate
way of accomplishing the
same thing that is com-
pletely different than the
method the other four
people are using.
Try to get all five people
together on the same page
and there's bound to be an
argument because to each
individual, it looks like the
other four are doing it
wrong.
In fact, if everyone is
getting the results they
want, then everyone is
doing it right regardless of
what the other four are
doing.
Whew!
Let's take a look at e-
mail and see just a few
ways of accomplishing the
same task. If you use e-
mail, see if you can recog-
nize the method that you
are using.
E-mail has got to be the
main reason people use
the Internet. The Internet
grew up as it is today with


e-mail at its foundation.
The process of sending
and receiving e-mail has
grown from its infant
beginnings of sending
messages in raw plain text
to the attachment carrying
fully editable rich text e-
mail that we have today.
However, the fundamen-"
tals haven't changed. You
still need a mail server-and
a mail client to process the
mail. We won't spend
anytime today on e-mail
servers, but let's take a
look at clients.
E-mail clients are, in a
nutshell, whatever pro-
grams you use to send and
receive e-mail. Here is
where all that diversity
comes in. Most e-mail
clients have major "behind
the scenes" differences,
but they all accomplish
the same task: sending and
receiving e-mail.
A couple of the most
common e-mail clients are
Outlook Express and AOL.
Both programs allow you
to send and receive e-mail,
but both programs are not
the same.
You'll find options and
controls in Outlook
Express that you won't find
in AOL and vice versa.
You'll find differences'in
how AOL manages and
stores the messages, as
well as the address book.
But the fundamentals
are still there. You can use
both to send e-mail to
your Aunt Edna and she


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This

can send e-mail back to
you.
So, which client is
better?
Neither.
They both do the job.
They just have some
different ways of going
about it.
If your e-mail address
has bellsouth.net or
perhaps adelphia.net,
then chances are, you are
using an e-mail client
such as Outlook Express
that downloads the
messages to your
machine and stores the
messages locally. (I know
I'm leaving out a lot of
others, such as Juno,
MSN, Earthlink, etc. They
all have their own e-mail
clients, but if we start
going over all the differ-
ences there, then we'd
really start getting lost.)
If your e-mail address
has aol.com at the end of
it, then the AOL e-mail


client is pretty much the
only way to manage your
e-mail unless you go to
the Web and that brings
us to another category of
e-mail clients: "Web
based."
I told you this could get
confusing.
Web based e-mail
clients are Web pages that
you can visit with a Web
browser (usually Internet
Explorer) and access your
e-mail online without
actually downloading it to
your computer.
The beauty ofWeb-
based e-mail clients is that
you have the ability to
access your e-mail from
any computer on the Web
as long as it has aWeb
browser, it doesn't matter
if there is an e-mail client
installed on your comput-
er or not, the Web page
itself does all the work.'
Again, you can do the
same thing; write, com-
pose, send and receive e-
mail, but the way things
happen behind the scenes
are different.
Many providers now
offer Web-based e-mail
management as part of
their service. Visit Web
sites such as
www.aol.com, www.bell-
south.net etc., and look for
the e-mail link, chances
are you'll find one.

during rain storms
This is going out to people
(driving) in the rain.
Can't they please put on
their lights like they are sup-
posed to?
There's been a lot of peo-
ple calling in to the radio sta-


tions when it's been heavy
rain, complaining about
drivers, (who) by law they
are supposed to have their
headlights on and don't.
My father-in-law was
killed by an 18-wheeler. He
had his lights on and the 18-
wheeler didn't.
That's a real safety hazard.

Ranters wants
answers about Islam
It is very disturbing when
not one local Islamic leader
has come out to speak
against Islamic extremists
operating around the world.
Allah seems to provoke
and endorse the killing of
those of other faiths.
If there is an Islamic leader
out there who would speak
up, please tell us what if any-
thing has Islam contributed
to world harmony.

Let's get bad drivers
off the road
Even with the recent
crackdown on speeders and
reckless drivers on Interstate
95, deaths and accidents are
the same or higher.
I started paying more
attention to the (police
report) section of the (paper)
Everyday the arrests read:
"Driving with suspended
license," "habitual traffic
offender," and "driving
under the influence."
On July 5, there were 20 of
these kinds of violations list-
ed in just the previous day's
crime log.
It is evident our law
enforcement people are
doing their job, but they
need our help.
Let's start out with confis-
cating whatever vehicle the
suspended license driver is
illegally operating.
That vehicle is now gone
off the road regardless of
whom it belongs to.
Along with the vehicle
confiscation, a 90-day
mandatory sentence in jail
would at the same time take
the illegal driver off the road.


It surely seems as if a very
large group of drivers are
driving on a suspended
license.
Could this be a "plea bar-
gain" from a DUI?
MADD and I hope not.
The relentless job our
police are doing to clear
these illegal and bad drivers
off our roads is being coun-
termanded by our courts
and legal system.
I How many times must our
police ticket the same bad
drivers to get them off the
road?
As long as these ticketed
drivers can take a class and
remove the points from their
record, the penalty for high-
er insurance rates and
license suspension cannot
become a viable deterrent.
Remember, fellow safe
drivers and law-abiding citi-
zens, you are paying for all
these illegal and bad drivers
on our roads through your
auto insurance premium
dollars.
Contact your local and
state representatives to
enforce our existing laws, do
away with the "cancel my
points" classes and imple-
ment a vehicle confiscation
law for suspended license
drivers who continue to
drive and are caught over
and over by our police.
Let's help our law enforce-
ment people clean up our
roads.

Ranter suggests
Republicans
deport themselves
Republicans, you tell
everyone else to "get real."
Are you serious?
What fantasy world are
you living in?
You start an unjustified
war that is bankrupting us
and is killing our soldiers for
nothing and have the
unconscionable audacity to
say that the numbers of
dead are relatively "inconse-
quential" and the rest of us
need to "get real."
Your administration has


made us a far bigger target
for the rest of the world than
we ever were before, and the
rest of us need to "get real?"
Your administration, even
at the state level, is leaving
an unprecedented financial
black hole for our children,
and the rest of us need to
"get real?"
Your administration has
made war on the environ-
ment, and the rest of us need
to "get real?"
Your policies are not
based in reality, and the rest
of us have had to pay for it.
Please do the country a
favor and deport yourselves.

Instead of complaining,
pick up some trash
Beach trash from the
offshore boats and the
two-legged beach users
has always been a prob-
lem.
It's just that there are
more of each showing up
on the beaches.
The organized cleanup
are a great help with this,
but help on the local level
is also needed.
Just be proactive when
you go to the beach. Not
only pick up after yourself,
but pick up a little more,
too. You'll be setting an
example for others.
You will be rewarded
with a little cleaner beach
as well. People will notice
and also pitch in.
An example: I walk on
the beach every other day.
I walk about 1 mile in one
direction, then on the way
back I pick up the trash
that has washed in or
been left on the beach
from the last two days.
I carry a plastic grocery
bag and fill it up every
time. (I've) been doing
this for years, and others
have noticed and pitched
in as well.
Be proactive and help,
not just complain.









Journals report on diabetes,


green tea, and tanning


From time to time, I
like to bring you
information of
interest that I find in
some of the newsletters I
get.
They are generally
published by medical
schools or academic
institutions and are
either written or edited
by doctors.
The UCLA School of
Medicine's "Healthy
Years" newsletter, pub-
lished by the Division of
Geriatrics, suggests in its
February issue that
people at risk for dia-
betes should be screened
for pre-diabetes or
higher than normal
blood glucose (sugar)
levels.
They suggest screening
for people with a family
history of diabetes,
including:
African-Americans
Latinos
Asian-Americans
Women who devel-
oped gestational dia-
betes while pregnant.
Women who delivered
babies weighing more
than 9 pounds.
People who are
overweight or have high
blood pressure or high
cholesterol.
Blood tests can reveal if
you are at risk for devel-
oping diabetes. Then you
can take steps to prevent
it.
Following are some
measures for doing just
that. Diabetes is the fifth
deadliest disease in the
United States, so this is
not something to ignore,
even if you don't feel sick.
Diet and exercise is as
effective as medication
in delaying onset of
diabetes.
"Focus on Healthy
Aging," a newsletter from
the Mount Sinai School
of Medicine in New York,
reported in the April
issue on a study in the
"British Medical Journal"
that found diet and
exercise may be as
effective as medication
in determining whether
people at risk for type 2
diabetes go on to develop
the disease.
The study suggests that
people at risk, including
those with a family
history, high blood.
pressure, high choles-
terol or obesity, who walk
briskly at least three


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well
times a week, lowered
their risk, as well as
various medications.
e Green tea brews
cardiovascular benefits.
The Tufts University
"Health & Nutrition
Newsletter" in December
2006, cited a Japanese
study that indicated
people who consume
several cups of green tea
a day.have a lower risk of
death from cardiovascu-
lar disease, especially
clot-related strokes.
While researchers don't
know why green tea
drinkers seem to derive
benefits from it, they
suspect it has to do with
high levels of polyphe-
nols, which are natural
antioxidants found in the
beverage.
The study was reported
in the "Journal of the
American Medical
Association," Sept. 13,
2006.
Fish oil preparations
effective in mild
Alzheimer cases.
While several studies
have shown that fish oil
may help protect against
Alzheimer's disease,
"Health News," a publi-
cation of the Duke
University Medical
School, reported a new
study has shown that
supplements containing
omega-3 fatty acids
found in some fish may
help as well. ..
The findings were
published in a recent
edition of the "Archives
of Neurology."
The Swedish study
found patients with early
brain impairment who
took fish oil supplements
had a slower decline in
functioning than
patients taking a placebo
or sugar pill.
Evaluating long-term
care. If you are evaluat-
ing long-term care
options for a loved one,
the U.S. Department of


Health and Human
Services has aWeb site,
wwvw.longtermcare.gov,
to help families plan for
their needs.
It is intended as an
information and
resource source, with
sections on understand-
ing long-term care,
planning for it and
paying for it.
As with so many other
things, planning before
you need a service is a
good idea; at the very
least, there is a glossary
of terms you'll hear and
links to other resources.
Tanning bed safety.
Some in the tanning
bed industry have begun
claiming that tanning
beds, which produce
ultraviolet light, may
help protect against
cancer.
The American Derma-
tologyAssociation and
the American Medical
Association have both
called for a ban on the
sale of the equipment for
non-medical use,
because ultraviolet
radiation is a carcinogen.
They are particularly
concerned about the use
of tanning beds by teens.
There is no safe level of
tanning, including a
"pre-vacation" tan.
Additional claims that
indoor tanning aids in
vitamin D production,
which may protect
against some cancers, is
not true, according to
researchers at Downstate
Medical Center in New
York and reported in the
December 2005 issue of
"The Journal of the
American Academy of
Dermatology."
They say that indoor
tanning provides far
more radiation than is
needed to get vitamin D,
and too much radiation
can actually remove
-vitamin D from the body.'
The bottom line is that
self-tanners from a bottle
are the only safe tans.
There are many brands
available that are much
better than the old
"streaky" kind.

Do you have an
important decision
to make in your
immediate future? Bathe
your decision in prayer.
God wants to be involved in
your decision-making
process.
The decision that you
make is important to God,
but He is even more
concerned about how you
arrive at that decision. God
wants you to make choices
from the fountainhead of
intimacy with Him.
'When facing major
decisions, Jesus set an
example for us by praying.
Luke 6:12-13 explains that
Jesus went to a mountain-
side and spent the entire
night in prayer.
At daybreak, He called his
disciples to him, and chose
twelve of them to be his
inner circle. He also
appointed them as his
apostles, or missionaries.
God loves you so much;
He is deeply interested in
every detail of your life.
Psalm 32:8 reveals God's
desire to lead and guide
you. It says this, "I will
instruct you, says the Lord,
and guide you along the
best pathway for your life. I
will advise you and watch
your progress."
We tend to make impor-
tant life decisions based
upon our appraisal of
surrounding circumstances
and conditions. But circum-
stances and conditions may
change rapidly.
God sees the past, present
and future all at a glance.
Because He sees future
events and trends that we
do not see, we must include
Him in our every decision.
Those who make deci-
sions based upon circum-
stances and conditions,
without consulting God,
become the thermometers
of society.
When trends change,
they are left out in the cold.
Ever-changing, unpre-
dictable forces shape their
destiny.
But those who take the
time to listen to God and
receive revelation from him
set a higher watermark;
they raise the standard.
They make divine decisions
that propel them and
others, into their purpose
and destiny.
They influence their

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

Religion columnist
world by bringing divinely
received initiatives to bear
upon this earthly sphere.
Intimacy precedes
insight. You may ask, what
do you mean by that, Pastor
David? By spending quality
time with God, he begins to
reveal the secrets of his
heart to you.
When you come to a fork
in the road, he provides you
with the insight to make the
correct choice.
Have you ever noticed
how much more pleasant a
long walk is with a great
friend to share it?
God not only wants to get
you on the right path; He
wants to walk along the
path with you. He enjoys
the journey too!
Another secret of deci-
sion-making is to have a
prayer life that is comprised
of a time of thanksgiving,
praise and worship, fol-
lowed by a great deal of
silence.
It is a delight to talk to
God, but it is even more '
thrilling when He talks to
you.
Matthew 13:9 says, "He
who has ears, let him hear!"
I believe the most impor-
tant word in the Bible is
"hear."
In order to enter, and
walk in God's Kingdom, you
must first hear the voice of
God. When he tugs at your
heartstrings, He is inviting
you to enter his kingdom by
receiving Christ.
God speaks to us through
his written word, by giving
us impressions, through
people, and many other
unique ways.
Listening to God isn't
something we automatical-
ly know how to do. We have
to train ourselves to listen.
First, ask questions. Be
inquisitive. Ask God, "What
are you trying to say to me?"
He will answer.
Second, anticipate God's
speaking; be eager to hear
Him. The bible promises
that God will speak to us.
Third, respond to what
God says. We must do what
He tells us to do, if we
expect to learn to hear.
Fourth, be alert to
confirming events. God
confirms his message. ,
When you ask God, "Was
that you speaking to me?"
He will confirm that it was
through another source.
Fifth, ask God to speak to
you before going to sleep '
for the night. Tell the Lord
that you are listening to
Him and you are available
to hear Him at anytime.
By doing these five things,
you set the stage for the
greatest continuing adven-

Hammerstein's "Cinderel-
la," which will run from
Nov. 28-Dec. 2.

ages 6-8 are on August 25,

I will be following this \
production from produc- f.

to bring a behind-the-
scenes look at what is
involved in bringing a
show to the stage. I know
that it is an enormous
undertaking and I look for-
ward to bringing you the
inside story.
The improbably-named
satirical musical "Urine-
town" is up next, from Feb.
6-10. The show won three
Tony ,awards, including
best original score by Mark
Hollman.
A more familiar musical,
"South Pacific" will be per-
formed from April 16-20,
and as a follow-up to last
year's popular 'Broadway
Showstoppers, the new
season will conclude from
May 23-25 with "Broadway

songs from hit shows that
were made into movies.

The Coasters'

Carl Gardner

is an original


He is a humble
man who has a
life lived large
on stage
BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Carl Gardner, original
lead singer for the 50s 60s
group The Coasters, is a
modest man.
The 79-year-old, recov-
ering from a stroke two
years ago, comes into his
Port St. Lucie living room
to join his wife Veta, and if
you hadn't already seen
the framed gold records
on the wall or the
announcement of group's
induction in to the Rock
and Roll Hall of Fame, you
wouldn't know you were in
the presence of rock 'n roll
royalty.
"I don't consider myself
a legend," he says in the
halting voice that also sur-
vived a bout with throat
cancer. "I don't under-
stand people making a lot
of fuss. I'm just another
man."
The Coasters had hits


with songs like "Young
Blood, "Searchin,"'
"Yakety Yak," "Charlie
Brown," "and "Poison Ivy,"
and Mr. Gardner per-
formed with the group
until 2006.
. His son, Carl Jr., has
taken over his role, but the
senior Gardner has a life-
time of stories to tell about
the group once called "The
Clown Princes of Rock 'n
Roll."
"I left Tyler, Texas
around 1949," he says. "I
went to California to get
my career started. I sang
with The Robins for two
years and met their writ-
ers, Jerry Leiber and Mike
Stoller."
The two songwriters
asked Mr. Gardner to form
a new group, and in 1957,
Mr. Gardner, Cornell
Gunter, Will Jones, and
Billy Guy formed the
group that would be the
first vocal group inducted
into the Hall of Fame.
The performers weren't
paid much; perhaps
$5,000 for a gold record.
"When you write your
own songs you can get

with his wife Veta.


rich," Veta Gardner says.
"Writers get more recog-
nition than singers. When
the music is played, artists
don't get the royalties, the
writers do."
Even with all their hits,
the musicians never made
a lot of money and sur-
vived on gigs, working
with musicians like Ray
Charles, Jackie Wilson,
Aretha Franklin, and
Frankie Lymon.
Racism was always pres-
ent when they toured. Mr.
Gardner remembers being


in a southern town with
promoter Dick Clark.
"The swimming pool
was for whites only, but
Dick Clark .said 'let's go
swimming.' They allowed
us in the pool as long as
Dick was there. If I'd gone
alone, I might have got
shot. I'm from Texas. After
I got famous, I .thought I
left that racial stuff-
behind."
One of Mr. Gardner's
proudest moments was
when the Beatles came to

UIIN N I HEIENMENt


Coasters
From page B1
hear the group in Miami.
"It knocked me out," he
shid. "I was honored. They
said they loved the songs
and I told them I loved their
songs. I was surprised they
came to see'us."
The group stopped tour-
ing in the late 1960s, not
because of hard feelings, but
because of a fear of flying.
"Billy, Will and Cornell
missed a plane and it
crashed," Mr. Gardner
recalls. 'After that, they
wouldn't fly."
Changing tastes also led
to the end of the original
group, as the Beatles,


Motown and disco took
over.
Veta Gardner, who also
manages the band, has
spent years writing the story
of the Coasters, but she
wanted to finish it while her
husband was still alive.
I She is working on a sec-
ond volume and hopes the
story will be made into a
movie. Jose Garafolo of the
St. Lucie Film Society, who
received a 2007 Lucie Award
with Mr. Gardner; agrees
that the musician's story is
"the stuff of movie magic.
"I think there will be a
film," he says. "It screams to
be made. His story is as
compelling as some.you've
seen in the movies. It's not
just about music; it's about
life and overcoming obsta-


cles. It's a great story and
we're going to see if we can
make it happen."
Mr. Gardner is all in favor,
and says he'd like Denzel
Washington to play him.
Mrs. Gardner favors Will
,Smith as her husband and
would love to have Halle
Berry play her.
Most recently, the Gard-
ners traveled to Tallahassee
for the vote on a bill in the
Florida Legislature that
would outlaw the use of
"imposter" bands pretend-
ing to be the original groups.
The Coasters have been
plagued by copycat bands
using their name.
Ten other states have such
laws. The Gardner's sat in
the gallery as Senators
danced on the floor of the


Senate, to "Poison Ivy" and
then cast the votes that
passed the legislation. Both
agree it was very emotional.
"It really touched me,"
Veta Gardner says. "The
Senators were lip-synching
,to the music. It was over-
whelming. They treated us
like royalty."
For the Clown Prince of
Rock 'n Roll and his consort,
that was only fitting.
"Yakety Yak, I Fought
Back: My Life With ,the

Holding grudges impedes


our progress in pursuit of joy


I recently heard one of
the most important
stories I have ever
heard in my entire life.
It touched me deeply
with the awesome raw
truth of life it contained. I
want to share it with you
and hope it touches your
heart the way it has
touched mine.
The story is about a
young fraternity brother
in a prominent college
who was hazing the new
pledges. He and other
fraternity members would
take the new pledges out
to a county road, blind-
fold them and place them
in the middle of the road
in front of a speeding car
coming straight at them.
Then, when the car got
closer, the fraternity
brother would remove the.
blindfold and the pledge
would jump out of the
way to safety.
One day one of the
pledges did not move out
of the way.
He froze.
The driver of the car
killed him instantly.
The man telling the
'story said, "This was me. I
was driving the car. It
ruined my life before it
got started and froze me
* from all my potential. I
got lost in life for a long
time.
"Then one day the
mother of the boy I killed
called me and told me
how much she had hated
me and wished I were
dead instead of her son.
"Then she said she went
to a spiritual gathering
and heard a speaker say
that if you hold vengeance
against another person, it
comes back on you and
you become enslaved..
After long suffering, I
finally began to release
the pain, hurt and judg-
ment and in time began
to forgive you,' she said.
'I'm calling you now to let
you know that I forgive
you and love you and wish
you the best. It's time to
close the door and move
on.' "
He said, "This was the
greatest gift I have ever
been given, besides the
gift of life given through
my mother. I have now
forgiven myself, started a
new career, my real one
and have found peace,
faith, joy and the freedom
to live a new and better
life."
Are you holding any
grudges?
If you are, then your life
is polluted and toxic
because you are living in
the past. When we hold a
grudge it comes back
around on us and robs us
of our freedom.
You can't punish anoth-
er person by being cold.
They don't feel it.
You are holding a
grudge against your own
soul.
'The greatest teacher of
forgiveness is Mother
Nature herself. She says
that no matter what
happened to last year's
crop, whether it came to a
fruitful harvest or the
bugs, drought, flood or
human error killed it,
there is a second chance.
Clear the garden of the
old, dead weeds, sticks

and trash that have
accumulated to make
room for new growth.
Then plant new seeds and
move on arni grow new
and better life.
Human life is the same.
If things don't work out as
planned, learn from the
mistakes, bless them for
what they taught you,.
forgive them as needed
and set them free. Move
on and create a new and
better life.
The universe, through
the law of the circle, is
based on cause and effect.
What we set in motion
comes back multiplied.
We can't change the
effects of what has hap-
pened, but we can create
a new cause or mission in
life.
What is your mission?
Every soul alive has one.
Finding it should be the
No. 1 priority in every life.
We are here for a far
greater purpose than to
be born, grow up, work
hard, get old and die.
There is a divine purpose
living inside our souls
since birth screaming to
be set free.
No one else can fulfill
this inner longing. Only
you can do it. You were
born to do it.


When you find it, take.
care of yourself and family
needs first. Then give
back the gratitude and
love you feel. Take care of
those who inspired you
on your quest for the
mastery of life.
Next, teach others who
are drawn to your light.
Help them find the
freedom to live a new and
better life. Pass the torch
of freedom.
My greatest wish is that
you find all this and more,
today and for all your
future days to come. You
can do it. The sweetest
new is the best is yet to
come. It all starts with
forgiveness.

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


!S;
tic
at
ca
h


Now, here is the good news. After eliminat-
ing the dealer fee my profit per car did drop
by about the amount of the dealer fee, but
my customers realized I was now giving them
a fair shake and quoting a complete out-the-
door price with no "surprises". And the word
spread. My volume of car sales began to rise
rapidly. Sure, I was making a few hundred
dollars less per car, but I was selling a lot
more cars. I was and am selling cars to many
of your former customers. My bottom line
has improved, not because I eliminated the
dealer fee, but because I was
tomers' able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
ons, level or used car. You can do the
same..
ion and Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
nation are I think of myself as the new
"sheriff' that has come to
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

PSL National defeat Martin


County for Little League title


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
Port St. Lucie National
knew they were in for a
fight July 16 against Martin
County North.
MCN had beaten PSL
National, 12-8, just two
days prior to force a win-
or-go-home champi-
onship game for the Flori-
da Little League District 17
title, and entered the Mon-
day night contest ready to
ride their momentum to a
victory.
But Marcus Sierra and
Tyler Boltersdorf had other
plans.
The PSL National team-
mates hit back-to-back
home runs in the bottom
of the fifth inning to break
a 3-3 tie and give their
team the lead for good. It
was the beginning of a
five-run inning, and when
the dust had settled, Port
St. Lucie had an 8-3 lead.
The score would remain
that way as Sierra and Kyle
Morris combined for a 1-2-
3 sixth to end the game.
"We knew we couldn't
take (Martin County
North) for granted .if we


were going to win," said
PSL National head coach
Brian Spencer. "(Districts)
is the toughest tourna-
ment to win because
you're all rivals. To hold
this trophy tonight is a tes-
tament to every coach in
the league."
Sierra was consistent all
night on the mound,
allowing four hits and two
earned runs while striking
out eight over five and
two- third innings.
But his biggest strike
came in the fifth when he
stepped to the plate with a
runner on first and one
out.
"I was just thinking
about how I just missed a
home run the last two
times up," Sierra said. "I
knew I could hit one if he
gave me a pitch."
While Sierra was looking
to hit the long ball, Bolters-
dorf never expected to hit
his home run.
His coaches had been
telling the third baseman
all season that he had the
size to be a power hitter,
but until the champi-
onship game, it was only a
dream. His solo shot to left


was his first home run -
ever.
"It was crazy. I got to do
that more often," Bolters-
dorf said. "We were pretty
mad (after Saturday's
game). There was no way
they were going to beat us
tonight."
Martin County North
rallied from deficits of 3-0
and 6-4 against Port St..
Lucie on July 14 with back-
to-back homers from J.J
Sanguily and Robert
Markut to force the cham-
pionship game on Mon-
day.
Despite a strong pitch-
ing performance from
Mark Savarese and RBIs
from Brian Dolan and
Chad Rowley in the cham-
pionship game, it was
clear Martin County's luck
had run out.
"They worked hard and
won four straight games.
We had to win five to win
(the District)," said Mar-
tin County North head
coach Rob Markut. "I'm
proud of them. They just
kept their head up and
did a great job this last
month."

Hurricanes play well, but lose 4-1


Mitch Kloorfain/chief photographer
Treasure Coast Galleon Pete Marino keeps Josimir Osario
of the Port St. Lucie Hurricanes from the ball during a
game played Friday, July 13 at Lawnwood Stadium.


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
Even a hurricane can't
shake the Galleons ship.
Port St. Lucie had their
chances against Treasure
Coast July 13, but were
unable take advantage of
multiple scoring opportu-
nities, losing, 4-1, to their
crosstown rivals at Lawn-
wood Stadium.
Jamie Maxon scored
twice in the first half, and
Anthony Sierra added two
of his own to start the sec-
ond, helping Treasure
Coast secure its second
straight win in Florida Elite
Soccer League Competi-
tion.
.But the story of the night
was not the blowout the
score indicates, but rather
the surprisingly good play
of Port St. Lucie. Despite
only scoring one goal, the
Hurricanes clearly rattled
Treasure Coast from start
to finish.
After losing their first
four games by a combined.
score of 21-3 (including a
4-0 loss to Treasure Coast


June 2), the Hurricanes
could have easily packed
up their gear and called it a
season. The clear No. 2
soccer team in St. Lucie
County when it comes to
attendance, media cover-
age and wins, Port St. Lucie
has quickly turned things
around in the last two
weeks. Using the "us vs. the
world" mentality, Port St.
Lucie scorched Okee-
chobee 10-1 for their first
win of the season July 6.
They used that momen-
tum against the Galleons
by coming strong out of
the gate offensively, trying
to set a tempo early.
"We've been preparing
for this game here and, to
be honest, we thought it
was going to be a lot
worse," said Hurricanes
captain Fabrizio Scaccia.
"So to come out 4-1, I take
my hat off to everyone on
our team. We played our
hearts out."
Scaccia, who had four
goals and two assists a
week earlier against Okee-
chobee, netted Port St.
Lucie's only goal of the


night. Scaccia's goal came
on his third penalty kick of
the match. His first two
attempts missed the net by
a matter of inches.
"I think the Galleons
realized that we played
better than them tonight,"
said Hurricanes coach Jack
Digiorgio. "I have no ques-
tion in my mind that we
played much better than
them, and they know that
they came out with a lucky
win, simple as that."
But while one team was
celebrating a valiant effort,
the other acted embar-
rassed by their perform-


ance against a rival on
home turf.
"(My players) didn't
take it as seriously as they
should. They took the
game too easy. They made
the other team good.
That's what happened
actually," said Treasure
Coast. coach Gerry Schia-
vo. "We Jet them go. We
made them look better."
Port St. Lucie and Trea-
sure Coast willnot play
each other again in the
regular season. The two
could meet when the
playoffs begin in August.


Lakewood Park passes first big test


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer


The Treasure Coast was
host to the United States
Specialty Sports Associa-
tion fast-pitch softball
state tournaments this
month, welcoming over 50
youth softball teams from
around the state.
The state "B" tourna-
ment was held in St. Lucie
and Martin counties on
July 6-8, while the state, "A"
tournament was held this
past weekend on July 13-15
in Fort Pierce and Indian
River counties.
"The main thing when
we come to an area, and I
deal with a lot of them, is
we look at the impact it will
have," said Dan Simpson,
USSSA region two director.
"It's not easy to put on a
tournament."
Teamed up with the
Treasure Coast Sports
Commission, the USSSA
was able to bring the tour-
nament to the area this
year, and looks to be back
in 2008.
Over 50 teams from
Sarasota, Tampa,' Ocala,
and Jacksonville ranging in


ages from 8 to 18, flocked
to the Treasure Coast with
hopes of moving on to
national tournaments later
this month.
The Treasure Coast was
viewed as an optimal loca-
tion for the USSSA to hold
its state tournament
because of its central loca-
tion. Being a three-hour or
less drive from Jack-
sonville, Miami, Tampa
and Orlando was a major
factor for USSSA directors
when choosing a tourna-
ment site.
"It's the new central
Florida," said tournament
director Gordon Patterson.
"It's just about equal dis-
tance from everywhere in
state beside Tallahassee."
Lakewood Park Sports
Complex in Fort Pierce,
which opened just last
month, was the main site
for the state "A" tourna-
ment.
Both Patterson and
Simpson were impressed
by the attention to detail
that the St. Lucie County
Parks and Recreation
Department gave to the
fields throughout the tour-
nament, citing numerous


instances where up to nine
members of the grounds
crew worked to get a field
back to playing condition
after a rain delay.
"They are very commit-
ted to having the tourna-
ment go on," Simpson
said.
While they were, not


totally enthusiastic with
the fields grass infields
(softball is usually played
with dirt infields) that
remained their only knock
on the tournament loca-
tion. Both agreed the Trea-
sure Coast would be great
place for the tournaments
in 2008.

Summertime is bargain time for lucky Florida golfers


Lately, golfers here on
Florida's Treasure
Coast have been
opening their newspapers
to some great news.
If you've looked for and
found advertisements for
golf courses, you've surely
seen the same thing that I
have. We are currently
enjoying a buyer's market.
I flipped open last week's
edition of Hometown
News to catch up on the
local sports, and right


there, staring at me, was
golf for practically noth-
ing.
I know that summertime
golf in Florida is usually
inexpensive, but this
borders on the ridiculous.
Courses are embattled in
a price war trying to get
you to swing your clubs on
their fairways.
There is golf with a beer
for $25. Another course
has golf all afternoon, as
much as you can play

before dark, for the same
price as 18 holes in the

For courses, it comes
down to marketing and
specials to fill their tee
sheets this time of year.
Some are a little better at
it than others.
One such course is Palm
Cove Golf Club in Palm
City. Course owner Doug
Moseley has come up with
an interesting way to
attract business and get


word out about his course.
Palm Cove is known by
many golfers for eating
their lunch. Now Moseley
wants to give you lunch
with your golf.
"If golfers would like to
come and challenge the
Cove and bring their
business to my course, I'll
be happy to buy them
lunch," said Moseley.

demand from golfers to fill
them all.
A majority of golfers
have returned to their
Northern homes or won't
venture out in the heat.
Those who wish to play
simply lack the numbers
to fill the tee sheets. Every
course wants as many of
those remaining golfers to
spend their golfing days
with them.
In fact, most courses
spend the summer just
trying to keep their heads
above water.
A golf course has a fairly
set expense sheet. Barring
unforeseen expenses, it
costs roughly the same
amount to keep the course
open whether they have 20
players a day or 200.
Obviously, if you have
200, you can charge less,
make a smaller profit off
each golfer, but have so
many that you still turn a
profit.
Those of us who live
here year-round are
fortunate.
We get to enjoy golf at its
least expensive and when
one course starts to
struggle and lowers its
rates, usually everyone,
follows.
'Come winter, there will
be so many of us that we'll
be in need of them.
The same economic rule
that helps us now will hurt
us then. So don't be too
mad once the rates start to
climb again.
Without the winter
demand, we'd have few
golf courses to choose
from over the summer and
fewer summer specials.
You can't have your cake
and eat it too, unless it
comes with cart, greens
fees and a beer for around
$25.

Even better is that the
improvements made by
Moseley and his staff-
since he purchased the
course a few years ago -
have made for a kindler,
gentler Palm Cove.
By letting the rough
grow up a little, and using
plant beds, he has been
able to stop many errant
shots from reaching the
water hazards and trees at
the course. Now you even
save money on golf balls.,
Owners and general
managers have figured out
that the best way to catch
any golfer's eye is to throw
a low price in front of him

If you've been spending
weekends mowing the

watching cars race around
