Local man named Florida Paramedic of the Year


BY WENDY DWYER
For Hometown News


They call him Doctor
Dave, but he's not a doc-
tor.
Still, thousands of Trea-
sure Coast residents and
visitors consider him their
guardian angel because
he's the face they saw in a
crisis hovering over
them, providing expert
medical care, complete
professionalism and a
level of comfort that
helped them know every-
thing was going to be OK.
The only person who
seemed surprised that
Dave Hoilman was recent-
ly named Florida's Para-
medic of the Year was Mr.
Hoilman himself.
"I've always had a pas-
sion for medicine," said
Mr. Hoilman, who comes
from a military back-


ground. "Doing this job is
really the culmination of a
lifelong passion."
A member of the St.
Lucie County Fire District
since 1991, Mr. Hoilman
has served the community
as paramedic, preceptor,
field training instructor
and flight paramedic.,
"He's the guy you call
when you have a ques-
tion," said fellow SLCFD
employee Doug Sweeney.
"He goes above and
beyond the best and he
has so much passion for
this work."
For Mr. Hoilman, EMS
work, particularly aviation
medicine, is a challenge
he embraces.
Mr. Hoilman said the
fire district's emergency
medical service typically
responds to somewhere
between 70 and 100 calls
per day, ranging from


Dave Hoilman


standard medical calls of
public assistance for indi-
viduals who have fallen
and need assistance get-
ting up, to providing trau-
ma care and transport to
patients in full cardiac
arrest. The District uses
Florida's criteria to deter-
mine whether a patient
needs to be transported by
helicopter to St. Mary's


Medical Center or Holmes
Regional Medical Center
in Melbourne, the area's
two nearest trauma cen-
ters.
One thing Mr. Hoilman
said might come as a sur-
prise to residents and visi-
tors is that, when St. Lucie
County's trauma helicop-
ter responds to an emer-
gency medical situation,
the pilot flying the copter
is a St. Lucie County Sher-
iff's Deputy.
"It might also surprise
people to learn that St.
Lucie County air transport
is a totally free service,"
said Mr. Hoilman, who is
also certified in CPR,

case

BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer

PORT ST. LUCIE -
More information con-
tinues to come to light in
the case of nine people
found bound and
abused in a Port St. Lucie
woman's home.
Police have discovered
that the woman adopted
11 children between
1993 and 1996 in New
York, and continued to
. receive state support for
them, even after several
of the children left her
care.
Judith Leekin, 62, of
114 S.W Hawthorne Cir-
cle, Port St. Lucie, is
being held at the St.
Lucie. County Jail on
numerous abuse
charges, including
aggravated child abuse
and aggravated elderly
abuse.
She has been accused
of keeping nine children
and mentally challenged
adults in her home,
bound with twist ties and
fed very little food.
Port St. Lucie Police,
working with authorities
in New York, where Ms.
Leekin obtained custody
of the children, has uncov-
ered additional informa-
tion about the case.

Overall, St. Lucie County bridges in good shape


One deficient bridge is scheduled
to be replaced next year


BY KIM COTTON
AND WARREN KARAGISE
Staff writers
ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
Bridges spanning the
highways and waterways
of St. Lucie County are
largely in good shape,
according to federal
inspectors, but state
transportation officials
are monitoring aging or
structurally deficient
spans.
Florida bridges came
under scrutiny last week
after a highway bridge
collapsed in Minneapo-
lis, killing at least five
motorists.
Locally, 17 bridges
were rated structurally
deficient by .federal
inspectors. St. Lucie


County has three defi-
cient bridges, while Indi-
an River County has the
most with 12 and Martin
has two.
St. Lucie County main-
tains one of the bridges,
while the other two are
maintained by the state.
St. Lucie County's defi-
cient bridge goes over
Taylor Creek on Juanita
Avenue. The state-main-
tained bridges are along
State Road 70, in the
western part of St. Lucie
County.
Don West, director' of
St. Lucie County Public
Works Department, said
the bridge over Taylor
Creek is scheduled for
replacement, with con-
struction beginning in
2008.


"We've been working
on a design for the last
two years, and we are
including a bike and
pedestrian path as part
of the project," Mr. West
said.
The $1.4 million
replacement project has
been funded, Mr. West
said, thanks to a program
called "Investment for
the Future," that the St.
Lucie County Board of
Commissioners started
in 1997 to fund bridge
repairs and replace-
ments. The funding
comes from an increase
in the gas tax, as well as
franchise fees.
"It has allowed us to
build and update infra-
structure," Mr. West said.
"We had seven bridges in
need, and now they are
all up to date."
Statewide, bridges are
inspected by the Florida


'We had seven bridges in need, and now
they are all up to date."

Don West
Director, St Lucie County Public Works


Department of Trans-
portation at least every
two years to assess the
condition of the struc-
ture, or damage from
collisions, water or
weather.
FDOT inspects all
bridges on county and
state roads, with move-
able structures such as
drawbridges undergoing
annual inspections. Sta-
tionary bridges are
inspected at least every
two years.
Once FDOT has
inspected the bridges,
data for local structures
is turned over to the
agency responsible for


maintaining the bridge.
"Once you see there is
reason for concern, there
are steps you can take,"
said Barbara Kelleher, a
spokeswoman for FDOT
District 4, which
includes the three Trea-
sure Coast counties, as
well as Broward and
Palm Beach.
For instance, if a bridge
is rated structurally defi-
cient, FDOT may con-
duct more frequent
inspections. The agency
can also restrict heavy
vehicles from crossing
the span, and move up
funding to repair or

Capt. Bartal said. "The

What Port St. Lucie police

IMPORTANCE OF FLOSSING
Q: Is using a mouth rinse just as good as flossing?
A: Some studies have shown that a mouth rinse can be as effective as flossing in
patients who have mild to moderate gingivitis. Gingivitis is the early stage of
periodontal, or gum, disease. the studies did not address the effectiveness of
mouth rinse versus floss in preventing tooth decay and in advanced cases of gum .
disease. So the American Dental Association still recommends regular flossing, at
least once a day, to help remove plaque between teeth. The flossing, of course,
should be in addition to brushing your teeth twice a day with an ADA-approved
fluoride toothpaste.
Even the most thorough brushing, though, will not remove plaque and food debris that can
accumulate between the teeth and just under the gum line. an interdental cleaner is a suitable
substitute for floss for getting between the teeth. Of course eating a balanced diet and avoiding
snacks between meals, especially sugary, snacks, is a vital part of an oral health regimen, as are
regular visits to the dentist. Talk with your dentist about products and practices that will keep
your smile healthy. -

records to New York to con-
tinue to receive assistance
for their care, Capt. Bartal
said.
Police believe Ms. Leekin
pocketed between $1.5 mil-
lion to $2 million for the
children in her care.
"We haven't received all
of the financial documents
from New York, but we
believe the amount may
increase," Capt. Bartal said.
Police 'are also searching
for an 11th child, who is still
unaccounted for. The 11th
person is 18 years old,
police said, but would not
provide more details on the
individual.
Police began to investi-
gate Ms. Leekin last month
after an 18-year-old
woman called police in St.
Petersburg on July 4, after
she was left alone at a gro-
cery store. Officer Robert
Vega, police, spokesman,
said his agency then got a
call from St. Petersburg
authorities about the teen,
who said she lived in Port
St. Lucie.
After two searches of the
home, police found nine
people huddled and bound
in a bedroom in Ms.
Leekin's home.
According to a psycho-
logical exam ordered by the
Florida Department of
Children and Families,
none of the children have
had any formal education
since the third or fourth
grades. Some of the adults
had limited verbal, reading
and writing skills, and were


denied medical and dental
care. According to the vic-
tims, the mistreatment had
occurred for many years.
All of the victims are
under the supervision of
the Florida Department of
Children & Families.
"They are safe and doing
well," said Lorrene Egan,
operations director of Cir-
cuit 19 for DCF, which cov-
ers St. Lucie, Martin, Indian
River and Okeechobee
counties. "They are not as
quiet as they were a few
weeks ago. They feel safe.
They are enjoying food,
safety and recreation activi-.
ties."
Ms. Egan said the adop-
tions in New York took
place before fingerprints
were required in the adop-
tion process. She added
that Florida has a meticu-
lous process to prevent
something like the Leekin
case from happening.
'Adoptive families go
through a rigorous
process," Ms. Egan said.
"They are fingerprinted
and have background
checks. We feel this safe-
guards the child."
It is unknown what will
become of the children and
adults that were once in
Ms. Leekin's care. Ms. Egan
said the state will decide on
the best and safest plan for
the children once the inves-
tigation is complete.
Capt. Bartal did not know
how long the investigation
would take.
"She was good at what
she did and that was
deceiving people," Capt.
Bartal said.

Teens from Spain get a feel for life in America


BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
Residents played host last
month to a group of teens
from Spain, who experi-
enced first-hand what life is
like in America.
Lauretta Findlay, coordi-
nator for Global Friend-
ships, a company that over-
sees an exchange student
program, led a group of 20
teens and one escort
around the state, giving
them a chance to experi-
ence the Florida lifestyle.
"We really want our kids
to have a good time and get
to know another culture,"
Ms. Findlay, of Fort Pierce,
said.
The visitors, age 13 to 18,
stayed with families in both
Port St. Lucie and Fort
Pierce. During the week,
they took trips to various
locations, throughout the
state, including a day at
Busch Gardens in Tampa
and a tour of Port St. Lucie's

Water main breaks closing road
A water main broke early Sunday morning,
closing part of Bayshore Boulevard.
The main broke in the early morning of Aug. 5,
closing Bayshore Boulevard between Carter and
Grove avenues. The road was partially reopened
Monday morning. Traffic was restricted to one
lane both northbound and southbound between
Carter and Eyerly avenues.
Water service continued for all Port St. Lucie
Utility Systems customers in the area, but seven
homes were issued boil-water notices as a precau-
tion.
The utility department is investigating why the
water main broke.

Exotic dancer revives client
A private dance by an exotic dancer in a Port St.
Lucie man's home was almost his last.
Karnesha Nantz, 25, of Port St. Lucie, was per-
forming a private dance around 5 a.m. Aug. 3, for
Daniel Karpinski, 46, of the 400 block of S.E. Evans
Ave.
During the performance, Ms. Nantz turned away
from Mr. Karpinski for 20 seconds and when she
turned back around, she found him slumped down
on the couch and having trouble breathing,
according to the Port St. Lucie Police Department.
Ms. Nantz called 911 and began to administer
CPR until rescue arrived and took over resuscita-
tion.
Paramedics were able to revive Mr. Karpinksi
while transporting him to St. Lucie Medical Cen-
ter. He was, later released from the hospital.
Ms. Nantz told police that Mr. Karpinski offered
her prescription narcotics on several occasions.
Investigators with the Port St. Lucie Police Depart-
ment found a prescription bottle of oxycodone in
Mr. Karpinski's home with his name on it.
Mr. Karpinski told police that Ms. Nantz offered
him an unknown pill, which he said he took on his
own. He added that he did not remember anything
about the event until he woke up in the hospital.
-Police continue to investigate the incident.

Heavy rains cause road to close
Heavy rains last week caused a utility pole to

A utility pole at Rio Mar.Drive and Prima Vista '
Boulevard was undermined by heavy rain, causing
it to lean over the lines. The rain washed away dirt
that was holding it in place.

and practically tore the fam-
ily apart for good.
"It's been a long journey,
but it's one we've taken as a
family," said Doris' son.
"Today was a very good day.
Doris says she's planning to
head back to school to work
on getting a degree and
maybe even a job as an
executive secretary, and
she's grateful for the second
chance she's received
.through Mental Health
Court.
The Mental Health Court
program, which was created
in 2006 by Public Defender
Dianmond Litty and mem-
bers of her staff, works in
cooperation with the State
Attorney's Office and several
local non-profit agencies.
Judge Cox said "a tragic
consequence of our under-
funded health system is the
reason for the increasing
number of individuals with
mental illnesses and addic-
tion disorders incarcerated
in Florida's jails. Correction-
al facilities are ill-equipped
to provide the treatment
these people need."
The graduation held July
31 at the St. Lucie County
Courthouse was the third
Mental Health Court Gradu-
ation
Public Defender's, Office
Client Services director Lisa
Fonteyn says 62 people
have graduated from the
Mental Health Program
since its inception on June
6, 2006, and only two re-
arrests.
Ms. Fonteyn says the State
Attorney's office approves
referrals and services pro-
vided for the participants
include "case and prescrip-
tion management, therapy,
housing and transportation
assistance, vocational, edu-
cational and job training,
drug and alcohol testing
and assistance in applying
for benefits."
Without this service,
many individuals dealing
with mental illness find
themselves repeatedly in
court or jail facing misde-
meanor and non-felony
charges because of an ill-
ness they are unable to con-
trol.
Those who participate in
the program, which has
been highly supported by
the St. Lucie County Com-
mission, do so willingly and
agree to receive treatment
and case management.
For many, it is a second
chance at achieving a nor-
mal lifestyle, learning how
to cope with illness and an
opportunity to become a
positive, contributing mem-
ber of the community. For
taxpayers, the program
saves thousands of dollars
that would otherwise have
gone towards incarceration.
"Incarceration of mental
health offenders costs
approximately $45,000 per
person, per year. A compre-
hensive mental health sys-
tem typically spends
$11,500 annually for each
offender," said Eric Gill,
public information officer
for St. Lucie County.
On hand to offer support
at last week's graduation
were Ms. Litty and St. Lucie
County Commissioners
Paula Lewis and Charles
Grande, as well as represen-
tatives from all the mental
health agencies, the State
Attorney's office, and
friends and family members
of the graduates. "It is ulti-
mately up to you to believe
in yourself that your life can
be different," said Tom Lane,
the graduation speaker and
a recovering cocaine addict
who lives with bipolar disor-
der. "Some of us have a psy-
chiatric disability," said Mr.
Lane. "But we are each so
much more than our illness
and people do get better."

City employees

For the people in Port St. Lucie who complain about
the garbage a pick-up fee of $2 a month extra, don't com-
plain.
Look at your city workers.,
The majority of them do not do very much. If they
worked-half as hard as the men driving and picking up
the trash in our neighborhoods, this city wouldn't need
so many employees.
They need more working employees.
There are some very fine workers in this city.
I have lived here for fifteen years. In these fifteen years
I have seen twenty police cars, tops, go down my street.
And probably half of those were the ones I called for
problems in my neighborhood.
I was beginning to think that there was no police
department, but lo and behold, I went by the gymnasi-
um on Tiffany Avenue, off of Lennard Road and there
were plenty of police officers.
It's just a shame that they are not out on the road doing
their sworn duty.

Is the glass full, or half empty?

To answer the question of whether or not Port St.
Lucie's glass is full, or half empty depends on who's hold-
ing the glass.
If you are one of the city/county employees that had
their salaries published in the newspaper, you could
answer that the glass is half full.
The same goes for Richard Houghten, founder and
president of Torrey Pines, to whom Port St. Lucie gave a
$90 million incentive package.
Keep in mind he's going to employ 189 people in the
next 10 years, like biologist Colette Dooley who just pur-
chased a home in Verb Beach.
But don't feel bad Port Saint Lucie taxpayers, all of our
glasses are half full, it's just that some glasses are a lot
bigger than others.

Just a couple of comments

A few a weeks ago there was a rant that described the
East/West Expressway and extension of Interstate 95 as a
trucker's delight.
That rant was right on target.
Imagine the noise of a 60-foot truck and trailer travel-
ing at 60 mph where there.are no sound barriers.
The noise might even reach city hall.
I would also like to say that there are many residences
i n San d p i per Bay where you will find four motor vehicles
parked daily, and each evening.
These are not the signs of an affluent tenant, but a
warning, or a signal that there are multiple tenants living
in that house.
It is just like a parking lot for used cars at night.
I think that should call for some blame for the realtor.

Fire safety for animals

It seems ironic that the humane society, which does
most of the killing of pets in this county and the city of
Fort Pierce, wanted to thank the fire fighters recently for
helping to teach their volunteers animal safety, especial-
ly animal CPR.
If the humane society were interested in the safety of
animals, they would have had the firefighters check their
facility to see if they had the proper fire safety measures
in the shelter, such as fire alarms, a sprinkler system, and
a volunteer on duty 24 hours a day to protect the a n i mal s
in the event of a fire.
Fire has happened at the local humane society before.
I haven't heard anything about them putting in fire
alarms, or any real safety features.
CPR would seem to be a remote possibility at the

humane society.
Let's get with it with fire safety for the animals.

Vendetta for life

I am responding to a recent rant called "No action is
being taken."
After reading that rant, I've come to the conclusion
that this isn't just some casual, random homeowner
complaining about their lot that is being destroyed
because of pool water.
This is somebody that has a vendetta against the Port
St. Lucie Public Works Department.
In usual cases like this, it is generally a disgruntled
employee that either got fired or has been transferred out
of the department, and now has a vendetta for life
against the department.

Just an idea

I have a few suggestions.
Why not have one of your reporters interview the traf-
fic department of the Port St. Lucie police each week to
ascertain what particular violations are prominent, and
note any suggestions they might make regarding driving
or avoiding violations?
I think that the same thing could be done with refer-
ence to the code enforcement.
What do they do? Do the check for violations or do
they wait for complaints from neighbors?
There is one section of homes that is empty in Sand-
piper Bay, and each driveway of the empty home is lit-
tered with merchant's reports and newspapers.
It is too much to expect a caring neighbor to remove
them, particularly when they are all wet.
That point might be explored with the code department.

Gas prices

How about a gas "boycott"?
Say, every Tuesday and Wednesday, nobody buys gas. I
thought of these days as a lot of people buy gas on week-
ends or paydays.. Also, on Mondays lots of people would
gas up for the coming week.
It would be impossible to get the whole country in on
this at the same time, but a large percentage could make
for interesting results.
I heard gas prices are going up to $6 per gallon.
People are complaining, with lots of oohs and aahs, but
we are all still filling up with little "screaming,"
How much are we going to take? Over the road truck-
ing has put 20 to 25 percent diesel fuel surcharge on top
of their freight rates, some more.
Who is paying for this?
All of us.
Most commodities are shipped by over the road trucking.
How about the prices at the grocers?
Anyway, this is just a thought. .
I would like some input from others, also from a statis-
: tical point ofview.

Doctors appointments

I had a doctor's appointment for 8 a.m.
I arrived at 7:55 a.m.
At that time, there were four people ahead of me. Three
more signed in before the doctor saw me at 9:15 a.m.
The anxiety of waiting to be seen is enough to make
one's blood pressure rise.
Would doctors be willing to deduct the waiting time
from the bill?

A problem with cable

With the higher cost of living these days, I am on a tight
budget.
My Internet service was eliminated, and my cable is
now the new version of basic.
Less than three years ago phone, electric, gas, good,
taxes and cable were all much less money than they are
today.
Cable went from $12 to $17.25 a month for just con-
nection to "basic."
When Comcast won over Adelphia, I lost out. Why?
What do I get for my money?
I pay $207 a year for Comcast basic cable. That is
$17.25 times 12 months. I cringe when I write the check
every month.
Here is why:
Ablue screen says, "WHDT is not providing service to
the Treasure Coast at this time"
Two channels, 3 and 14, are in Spanish. I speak Eng-
lish
'* Let us add insult to injury, as they say.
In America, English is the language of our country.
Channel 3 has many good movies, like HBO, STARZ, and
CINIMAX has, but I cannot afford to upgrade my cable
service that would allow me the opportunity to have the
good movies.
Maybe Comcast could sub-title this channel in English
so English speaking Americans could enjoy the movies,
too.
*We, the subscribers, are sick of infomercials. The con-
stant barrage of commercials, over and over is out of con-
trol. In a half hour show there is more time spent on
commercials than the actual show.
Count them. You'll be amazed.
And, you pay for this.
Comcast is paid by us, the subscribers. It is also paid
by the advertisers. Comcast customer service passes the
buck. They say, "We don't control the blah, blah; blah,"
and then they tell us to call the Federal Communications
Commission. -
Meanwhile, you and I pay to hear ads, and oh, yeah,
lousy programming.
Old sitcoms are just about the cheapest for of enter-
tainment
Superstition WGN? Give me a break. Please tell me
why Chicago news is broadcast on the Treasure Coast.
And, you and I pay for this.

Letters


'Bigotry and dealerships' column

It is very refreshing to read a dealer that is so open and
straightforward every week. "
My background is 16 years with the Ford Division, Fo rd
Motor Company. I started retail with a dealer, and then
was employed by Ford.-
I was in customer relations, was a field service rep., a
heavy truck sales engineer, and was the heavy truck- mer-
chandising manager.
I left to again go retail, then to run a 350 vehicle fleet at


a major university.
To the point, I would encourage the Spanish speaking
families to continue speaking Spanish in their homes,
just as I would encourage any other nationality to con-
tinue speaking their native tongue in the home.
It's great to have a second language. I am sorry that my
immigrant father did not speak his language in our
home.
I would have loved to have that second language now.
But, alas, he felt that he was now in America, and that
English was the language of education, business, and
conversation of the culture that he had now chosen to


assimilate.
And assimilate he did. He only spoke English at home,
and as I said, he assimilated the culture of his choice.
To finish, I once was a "buy American" type.
However the advertising of Toyota, the fact that you
build in the U.S.A., that Toyota builds a fine product and
it has a dealer like you, I sure would consider buying for
my next car from you.

A filler channel is the T.V Guide channel. It lists.all the
junk as a reminder of insult to injury again, and again,
again on a scroll.
Religious channels, oh, please. If you want religion,
go to a house of worship, but please stop it from being
broadcast.
We are fed up with fake faith healers with hair replace-
ments and gaudy gold furniture praising and singing
alongside potential psychiatric patients who wear huge
wigs, too much make-up, and sequined dresses as if it
was for a Saturday Night Live comedy act.
Some members of the television audience actually
buys into this, and some literally allow themselves to be
physically shaken so their brains rattle around in their
heads.
No wonder they fall to the floor.
And, again, we the subscribers pay for this crap.
OK, they call it Hometown channel 10 news.
We call it infomercials, commercials, testimonials, and
a French horn jingle that has become infectious in a
brain damaging way.
"Hokey" wouldn't do justice for this channel.
But, I suppose it is a step up from a few years ago when
all the sex offenders were broadcasted with their pictures
and addresses accompanied with music in the back-
ground.
. It always bothered me when the song with the words
"One way or another, I'm gonna find ya, I'm gonna
getcha, getcha, getcha, getcha," played as I counted over
115 offenders.
And, we the subscribers pay for this.
Let me not forget to mention the shopping channels,
NBC shopping network, QVC, and HSN to mention a few.
Basic subscribers are on budgets, so 99.9 percent of us
can't afford to buy anything.
This includes, but is not limited to, frozen cakes, Angus
beef, "stretch pay" jewelry, handbags, tools, and endless
containers of Chinese crap.
Again, I'm on a, very fixed income, and can't afford
$1,000 watch.
And, yes, you and I pay for this channel.
Cheap programming such as judge shows are aired.
These courts shows feature dysfunctional people making
a mockery out of our judicial system.
Then there are shows like Springer, and Maury Povich
that bring depravity to an all time low.
What is disturbing is that an entire generation of young
people absorbs this, and know no difference.
They are not shocked when they hear, "You are the
father."
Unbelievable.
The news, let me be clear here, all of the major news
networks with the exception of FOX.News, are fed main-
stream announcements.
FOX is in its own world of pure propaganda.
Out of 29 channels minus one or two, I actually view
only five.
That comes to $3.45 per channel per month.
They give us junk programming.
Boycott advertisers until quality programming in Eng-
lish returns.

Stop the cruelty

I saw in the paper that a man had 30 pit bulls in Fort
Pierce, and was cruel to them, beating them, and starv-
ing them supposedly to prepare them to fight.
Then I saw on the news on television that there is a
professional football player with a house in Virginia
where they found 60 dead dogs in the yard, and he was


accused of having fighting dogs.
I think we should lock those two up together, and have
them fight each other.
This is justice.
The Bible says, "an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a
tooth."
I think they should have to fight together to the very
end.
A judge should hand this sentence down.
If I were a judge, I would definitely hand this down.
If dogs are forced to do this in a public forum, I say let
these two men do it in a public forum.
That should teach the others never, never to perform
cruelty to animals of any kind, be it dogs, cats, etc.
Also, I saw on the news that a woman had a house with
retarded people, teenagers and adults, tied up in it.
Once there is a winner in the fight between the two
men, let that winner fight this woman, and we will really
see what happens.
If this is done in public, perhaps the next time people
will think twice about performing cruelty.
I was with the Humane Society for nine years. If I per-
sonally saw someone doing this, I know I would jump up
and throw a rock at that person, and cut the animal
loose.
It would be the right thing to do.
If I had something in my hand, I would bat the child or
adult who was hurting any animal.
Let the abusers 'fight. Let it be televised. Maybe that
would send a message to the cruel, rotten people out
there that fight animals.

Moore's 'Sicko' is must-see viewing

If you are a working individual, you have to go see the
Michael Moore movie, "Sicko."
You have to see this movie.

Eggs are for eating, not throwing at cars

This morning I got up only to find an egg carton in the
yard and every car on our street was egged.
I have no idea who did it, but cameras will be installed
(so) we will catch whoever is doing this.
I have worked hard and I have paid for my car and I
would never damage someone's property.
I don't wish this on anyone.
Please stop the vandalism.
You'll understand when you grow and have to pay bills
how important it is to keep what you have even if it isn't
much. "

Stand up to inconsiderate neighbor
To 'What to do about inconsiderate neighbor,' I (too)
have been dumped on by a very inconsiderate, thought-
less neighbor for 20-plus years.
My neighbor pays to have (her) lawn mowed. She
watched the mower-riding guy turn around on my lawn
eight times, thanked (him) and paid (him) for making
their front lawn look great and left ugly gouges in my
front lawn. That was just fine with her.
Years past, my neighbor paid people to spray grass and
weed poison along their chain-link fence. The person
killed my grass and my flowers, too.
But that was OK with her.
How dare my grass and my flowers on my lawn get near
her fence?
Another time, the thoughtless neighbor had a sprinkler
head put at the end of their hduse, close to my new stock-
ade fence. They ruined it with ugly water stains.
But that was OK with them.
How dare my fence on my property get in the way of


watering their weeds. A7
I had to replace the fence at a cost of $600. M
They would deliberately ruin this one if I weren't ever
vigilant.
I had to the call the police to keep the mower guy off
my property.
Homeowners beware. Don't do as I' did and wait 20
years before I said enough is enough. 4
Take a stand now.

Saying one isn't homosexual,
doesn't mean it's true

Sorry, I just can't sit back and let these self-righteous
homophobic hatemongers spread their preconceived
ideas as facts.
All the opinions by the groups mentioned in their let-
ters are.not based on any real scientific studies but rather
religious-based studies, with results guaranteed .to fit.
They offer not one shred of real proof to support their
ideas. z
No, I am not from PFLAG. Although I have heard of it, I 3
don't really know that much about them or their pro- .
gram.
Do homosexuals live in the straight world, marry, have =
children, and go to church?
,Yes, of course they do.'
Millions of them live a closeted life, denying who they 0
are. r
Some remain faithful to their spouses. Many others
sneak around having casual sex or some even longtime
affairs.
If you ever read through arrest records you would find
most of those arrested for unlawful behavior in rest-
rooms are married or single men living as straight.
Teachers, military, public workers, and ministers are
among those arrested in police stings.
Do some homosexuals living to old age find them-
selves lonely and unfulfilled?
Yes, but so do millions of other elderly. Millions sit in
nursing homes with no family caring for them.
Those religious organizations and the Web sites men-
tioned say it's a choice. If that is true, who would choose
to live a life of scorn? To be hated and discriminated
against. To be beaten and even killed.
There was no time in my life I decided I was attracted
to my own sex. It just happened.
As most do, I tried to ignore and deny what'I was.
Guess what?
It can't be done.
Why are so many teen suicides attributed to gay teens?
Is it because they can no longer withstand the pressure to
conform or can't face what they are and the life of hate
and discrimination ahead?
Anyone can say, usually under great duress, "Hey, I am
no longer gay," and go on to live a straight life, but that
does not mean they are no longer a homosexual.

Cell phone users should 'can'
their conversations

Have you ever been in line waiting, when someone
behind you, in front of you and the cashier are all on their
cell phones talking about nothing?
I don't answer mine when I'm in the car, at a grocery
store or anywhere in front of someone.
It's rude, unkind and worthless.
Turn them off. It's annoying to listen to what you did
last night when I'm trying to buy groceries.
Have some common coui teNy.

he expects close to 3,100
new students, up from
38,900 at the end of last

To accommodate the
growth, two new schools
will open, Samuel S.

Manatee Elementary in
Port St. Lucie has also
been expanded to Mana-
tee Academy K-8 School
to meet the needs of stu-
dents and families in the
St. Lucie West area.
"(These schools) are
part of a 20-year growth
and facilities plan we put
together that will stay
even with our growth,"
Mr. Lannon said. "They
will help transform St.

into the 21st century."

Zone, which is north of
Midway Road. Mr. Lan-
non said that zone's
schools have children
with the most needs.
"We have almost six out
of 10 children living in
poverty," Mr. Lannon
said. "The issue of pover-
ty is one that impacts
children all across the
county."
Included in the plan is
eight pre-kindergarten
programs, language
immersion programs for
students and parents, as
well as further reducing
class sizes. Hundreds of
children were in summer
programs to bolster read-
ing and math skills, or
retrieve coursework or
credits.
To help students
achieve their best this
upcoming school year,
Mr. Lannon said the
school board is working
with the Boys & Girls Club
of St. Lucie County and
the YMCA of the Treasure
Coast to increase after-
school care. With children
spending only 1,000
hours of 6,000 awake
hours at school, positive
community involvement
is important.
"I talk to people all over


'We have to change our business so our
graduates can get jobs, have careers and have
lives,"

Michael Lannon
Superintendent, St. Lucie County School District


the county in an effort to
get more groups. involved
and provide more posi-
tive outlets for children,"
Mr. Lannon said.
During the summer, the
St. Lucie County School
district implemented the
first part of a $20,million
technology infusion plan
to install state-of-the-art
audio-visual instructional
technology to upgrade
classrooms in 12 older
schools to the level of
learning environments in
newer schools. Eventually
all classrooms in St. Lucie
County Public Schools
will have the same level of
instructional technology
for student achievement.
"We have to change our
business so our graduates
can get jobs, have careers
and have lives," Mr. Lan-
non said. "We have to
have a bridge to the 21st
century."
The district's trans-
portation department has
upgraded its telephone
system, partnering with.
the student assignment
department checking for
parents requesting trans-
portation, and utilizing'
the district's telephone
notification system to
double check those
requests.
Nearly 700 new teach-
ers from around the
world, and scores of sup-
port personnel, ha:'e
been hired to "meet the


needs, of the expanding
student population in St.
Lucie County schools.
Staff development train-
ing has been ongoing
through the summer for
teachers and support
staff to enhance instruc-
tional delivery and school
operations.
Seventeen of those new
teachers will come from
India through a partner-
ship with Florida Atlantic
University, since a
teacher shortage is not
just a St. Lucie County
issue.
"It's the kind of situa-
tion that is happening all
over the nation," Mr. Lan-
non said. "Not every
nation has a shortage of
teachers and some are
having a difficult time
finding work."
Overall, Mr. Lannon
said he is looking forward
to the 2007-2008 school
and believes it will be a
successful one.
'"We're on the edge of a
breakthrough," Mr.. Lan-
non said. "We have much
more integrated technol-
ogy, the parents' portal
will provide much more
data to parents and our
dress code moves into its
second year. We're excited
and it's time to get going."
The first official day of
school is Aug. 20.

board."
Indeed, the SLCFD's
motto has always been,
"our family serving yours,"
a statement which Mr.
Hoilman said applies in
every situation.
The District and the St.
Lucie County Sheriff's
Department jointly own
the $2.6 million Italian-
made Agusta A119A Koala
that serves as a miniature
flying emergency room.
Mr. Hoilman says it is one
of the fastest single-engine
civilian helicopters in the
wbrld and is able to trans-
port a patient to either
trauma center for defini-

Those opposed to
'unwinnable' war
are not traitors

This is in response to the
(person) who wants to know
"Who are the winners in this
war?"
You have obviously never
worn the uniform of our
great country, or you would
know there are no winners
in a war and that includes
this one.
There are, however, some
losers: The American tax-
payer who has had to foot
the bill to the tune of $400
billion with more to come,
the families of the more than
3,600 soldiers killed during
this war, the soldiers who
were wounded and have
returned to a broken mili--
tary health care system and
VA medical system, (which
is) totally unprepared to pro-
vide them adequate medical
care.
We are fighting an ill-con-
ceived and poorly planned
war. A war that was started
by the U.S. attacking a sover-
eign nation without provo-
cation for the first time in
history. In the rush to war,
the reasons the administra-
tion used to justify our uni-
lateral attack on Iraq were all
found to.be false.
The American military, as
good as it is, is caught in the
middle of a civil war. They
have been placed in an
unwinnable situation. At
this point, all they are doing
is (trying) to give the political
process in Iraq additional
time to work.
While the U.S. military
continues to fight for the
Iraqis,'their parliament will
go on vacation in August.
To say that radical
Islamists and liberal Democ-
rats are somehow involved
in a team effort to defeat our
military ... if you really
believe that you need help.
Your closed mind obvi-
ously does not understand
that the majority of Ameri-
cans, both liberal Democ-
rats and conservative
Republicans, are against this
war and the failed policies of
thie current administration.


as 11 to 15 minutes. The
Sheriff's Office also owns
two law enforcement heli-
copters.
In addition to respond-
ing to calls and serving on
the International Flight
Paramedics Association,
Aeromedical Safety Com-
mittee, Emergency Medical
Guideline Committee and
the Medical Review Board,
Mr. Hoilman is also a pro-
fessional educator, some-
thing he says is all part of
the same passion for-pre-
hospital medicine. Still, at
the end of the day, Mr.
Hoilman says people might
be surprised to learn that
he is much more sensitive
than he appears to be.


Look for nmid-September
when all the politicians
jump on the bandwagon to,
get our troops out.

Selling our roadways
enriches foreigners
Passing through' your
area, I caught a copy of
your paper that contained
a (rant) on your governor
allowing privatization of
freeways in Florida.
I thought I ought, note
for you that the Bush

Transportation has .been
pushing privatization.
The unmentioned lure
for politicians is how they,
can be re-elected by put-


"I am no different from
any of the other medical
professionals who respond
to traumatic situations.
Every one of us takes our
job and work home with
us. And if anyone tells you
otherwise, they are' lying.
Emergency Medical Ser-
vice is filled with dedicated
professionals who have
made the sub-category of
pre-hospital medicine
their life," he added.

things they buy with the

Well-known jazz musician and artist Joe Holiday of Port St. Lucie spoke at the St. Lucie County Cultural Affairs
Council Awards meeting, where he accepted a mini-grant on behalf of the St. Lucie Professional Art League in Jan-
uary 2007.

Joe Holiday still loves jazzz


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Joseph Befunio was
born in Sicily,, but his'
family moved to
Newark, N.J., when he
was a baby. He began
playing the clarinet as a
child and then got hold
of a saxophone; as a
young man he loved
jazz and worked in
black clubs for the jazz
experience. He was
often the only white
musician. ,
In the 1940s, Toe Befu-
mo formed his own


band and band mem-
bers tossed around a
few names that were
easier to remember
than Befumo. Someone
suggested Holiday
because it sounded
happy, and as Joe Holi-
day, he became a well-
known saxophonist and
one of the few white
musicians to play the
fabled Apollo Theater in
New York.
The Port St. Lucie res-
ident. and president of
the St. Lucie Profession-
al Art League spoke by
phone, from New Jersey,


where he spends the
summers, about his
long career, both as a
musician and an artist. ,
"After a lot of years of
club playing, Prestige
Records called," he says.
"They were the biggest
jazz label. I went in to
see Bob Weinstock
(Prestige's founder) and
got a contract. He told
me I could do anything I
wanted, but he wanted
me to do one song,
"This is Happiness," a
Latin song, in a jazz
style. It took off like
crazy and sold thou- !


sand and thousands.
That was pretty good for
a jazz non-vocal record-
ing. We were on the
charts for 10 or 15
weeks."
The success of the
1951 recording led to
the gigs at Birdland and
the Apollo and to popu-
lar jazz cities like Chica-
go, Detroit and St.
Louis. Mr. Holiday had
the opportunity to
record with other jazz,
musicians including
Max Roach and Billy

Mitch Kloorfain/chief photographer
Mike Jordan, Jon Bates, Felicia D'Ascanio, Deborah Wiggins, Sandra McNiff, Thomas Hausler, Jim McConville and Mer-
ilee Lawrence rehearse thrir roles in Richard Rodgers' 'Two By Two,' a musical about Noah and the flood. The perform-
ances will take place at Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Palm City on Aug. 17-19.


'Two by Two,' a musical comedy

that looks at Noah and the flood


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
John and Vyki Sabo of
Port St. Lucie have traveled
as a theatrical pair since
college, and as the director
and musical director of
Richard Rodgers' "Two by
Two," they are working
together again to bring the
comic musical about Noah
and the flood to life at the
Aldersgate United
Methodist Church in Palm
City on Aug. 17-19.
The show, which is being
produced by the Sabos'
Possible Dreams Produc-
tions, stars actor Jim
McConville .of West Palm
Beach, with a cast from
Martin and St. Lucie coun-
ties.
Mr. McConville, a New
Yorker who moved to Flori-
da in 1988, has worked in
community theater since
1990 and has performed in


some 30 shows. He had
worked with John Sabo
and both men were look-
ing for an opportunity to
work together again.
"'Working with John Sabo
is a delight," Mr.
McConville says. "He's very
experienced and gets the
most out of a show. I'd
work on any show with
him."
Mr. McConville hasn't
done a lot of musicals and
is nervous about the chal-
lenge of playing Noah, who
has 11 of the 18 songs in
the show.
"This is different for me,"
he says. "It's a bit of a risk.
John's wife, Vyki, the musi-
cal director, is a tremen-
dous help and the cast is
really good. I'm the only
one who doesn't have to be
a really good singer."
Mr. McConville says he
was drawn to the role
because much of it is
talk/singing, where the
ability to put over a song is
perhaps more important
than singing ability.


"Two by Two" tells the
story of Noah, his family,
and the flood. The show
originally played on
Broadway starring Danny
Kaye as Noah.
"Noah changes a lot,"
Mr. McConville says. "He
starts off as a grumpy
know-it-all who sees the
negative and has trouble
with his kids. After his wife
dies, he comes to respect
his sons and learns to be
more-laid back and toler-
ant. It mirrors my own life.
My wife passed away and I
learned a lot from that
experience."
Despite the death of
Noah's. wife, Esther, the
play is funny and tongue-
in-cheek. When God tells
Noah about the flood,
Noah sings a song, "Why
Me?" Mr. McConville likens
it to the current movie,
"Evan Almighty," which
also deals with Noah and
the flood.
"People are used to the
stories being told tongue-
in-cheek," he says. "The


writers are geniuses. They
can take an epic or reli-
gious event and bring, it
into everyday life."
The family-friendly
show will have kids play-
ing a prominent role;
they will portray the ani-
mals that Noah brings
into the Ark, Mr.
McConville hopes that
families will come to see
the show and be enter-
tained.
"Some of Richard
Rodgers' songs are as
good as any he's written,"
the performer says.

"Two By Two" will take
place atAldersgate United
Methodist Church, 5200
S.W Martin Highway,
Palm City on August 17-
18 at 8 p.m. and on
August 19.at 3 p.m. Tick-
ets are $20 for adults and
$10 for children. The pro-
duction is a fund-raising
event for the Church. Call
(772) 288-4502 for tickets.

Taylor. His music drew
from two of his idols,
Stan Getz and Lester
Young.
Mr. Holiday loved the
Latin sound, and he used
players from Cuban jazz
musician Machito's band,
the Afro-Cubans.
"I used strictly Latin
players," he says. "I did it
on purpose. We barely had
verbal communication,
but the music worked.

The Martin County
Library System will con-
clude its year-long 50th
anniversary celebration
with a concert on Nov. 18,
by the popular
Cajun/Zydeco band The
Porchdogs, who packed
the house last summer
when they appeared at the
Blake Library.
On Nov. 24, Rick Hub-
bard and his All-Kid Kazoo
Band and the Melody Sim-
mons Trio in "A Tribute to
Peggy Lee," highlight the
festivities and on Nov. 25,
there will be two perform-
ances of The Lucy and
Desi Tribute Show. It
promises to be a rousing
end to a great celebration.
Reunion bands a
fun way to spend
an evening
After the recent perform-
ance by the The Cowsills, I
got a very nice email from
Bob Cowsill, the leader of
the family group that was
the basis for the 1970s tele-
vision program, 'The Par-
tridge Family." The band
re-united after the tragic
deaths of two of the broth-
ers, Barry and Bill. Bob said
that they had an "awe-
some" time at the Lyric and
that they were happy with
everything except that the
show might have run too
long. You couldn't tell that
,from the audience, which
loved the show, the banter
and the encores.
After seeing The Lovin'
Spoonful a few weeks ago, I
realized that these bands
bring a lot of pleasure
reminding people of songs
they remember, some they
didn't know, new songs and
insights gleaned from hav-
ing been around a lot
longer then they were when
they first sang the tunes.
Both bands have some
original members and
some newcomers. Bob
Cowsill says they hope to
make a return visit to Stuart
and he'll keep us posted.
"Two by Two" on
stage at Aldersgate
United Methodist
Church
"Two by Two," a musical
comedy about Noah and
the flood, will be per-
formed at the Aldersgate
United Methodist Church,
5200 S.W. Martin Highway
in Palm City from Aug. 17-
19. John Sabo is directing
and his wife, Vyki is the
musical director; many of
you know this power the-
ater couple from Barn
Theatre productions.


Jim McConville plays
Noah, who is befuddled by
the younger generation
and asks "Why Me?" in
song. Merilee Lawrence
plays Esther, Noah's wife;
others in the cast include
Tom Hausler, Deborah
Wiggins, Jon Bates, Jenna
Pinchbeck, Mike Jordan
and Sandra McNiff.
.Performances are at 8
p.m. on Friday and Satur-
day and at 3 p.m. on Sun-
day.' Tickets are $20 for
adults and $10 for stu-
dents. Call (772) 288-4502.


Machito and his Orchestra,
as well as Max Roach,
Cecil Payne, Billy Taylor
and Idrees Sulieman."
Mr. Holiday and his wife
moved to Port St. Lucie
nearly 20 years ago and he
is well-known as an
abstract painter who fre-
quently uses jazz themes
in his works.
He is active in efforts to
bring both jazz and art to
area schoolchildren and
was honored by the St.
Lucie County Cultural
Affairs Council in 2005


with a Lifetime Achieve-
ment Award.
Recently, Mr. Holiday
was invited to see the
restoration of the Apollo
Theater in New York.
"It's absolutely gor-
geous," he says. "I was one
of the few white guys to
have a featured big band at
the Apollo. For that time it
was a big deal. The manag-
er told me I was part of
their history. I stood on
the bandstand where I led
the big band and I got a
kick out of it. I've had an
interesting life."

Washing fruit for delightful


dessert is no trifling matter


VlESEL
ET.j


ello, smart shop-
pers.Today we will
make a trifle, an
amazing dessert made
with fruit.
Hopefully,Fyou know
that all fruits must be
washed. But have you
ever washed a can-
taloupe?
A while ago
cantaloupes were
spreading e-coli bacteria.
The bacteria on the skin
was transferred to the
flesh when cut.
How about bananas?
Where has that banana
been and what has it
come in contact with?
A cold-water bath, to
which you have added a
little white vinegar, is
fine for washing most
fruits, but when it comes
to melons, use a scrub
brush.
Weren't you thinking,
let's do what raccoons
do: wash everything
before eating it?
According to the
encyclopedia, raccoons
aren't really washing
their food they're simply
imitating how they would
pull a fish or other
animal from a river or
stream.
We didn't know that
when we got Rascal and
Bandit. What? You've
never heard of having a
pet raccoon?
I thought all parents
were as crazy as we were.
It all began when a
mother raccoon, unbe-
knownst to my brother,

babies. When the door
was opened, she went for
food. One day, the door
was closed and momma
raccoon could not get in.
I It took a couple of days
before "uncle" discovered
the crying babies and
immediately called us in
Connecticut.
Unfortunately, my
husband answered the
phone and when he
yelled that "uncle" had
two raccoons and wanted
to bring them, the kids
jumped for joy and my
husband said, "yes."
He built them a cage
with a house. Did we
have a pool? No, but the
raccoons did.
They proved to be a bit
more than we could
handle and would con-
stantly fight. It seems,
raccoons can never be
really tamed and as
adults must be released.

TRIFLE
SERVES 10-12
REGULAR AND LOW-FAT

What is a trifle?
Special trifle bowls are
everywhere. A large,
round, straight sided
bowl 8-inches in diame-
ter on a pedestal base.
In England, a trifle
means anything goes.
Leftover plain cake or
jelly roll was sliced and
placed in a flat, 3-inch
deep dish, drizzled with
sherry, topped with a
custard or red gelatin,
chilled and served with
whipped cream.
. In America, a trifle is
made in the above-
mentioned bowl. Layered
with fresh and canned
fruits, cake, pudding and
cream, a trifle is a delight
to behold and a joy to the
palate.
Change it for an almost
totally fat and choles-
terol-free dessert. You
can't taste the difference.
I use fat-free whipped
topping instead of
whipped cream because
it holds up better and
evaporated skim milk,
undiluted, in the pud-
ding. I also prefer
ladyfingers to cake. You
can get them in the
supermarket; you want
the dry ones not the soft
ones sold in the bakery.

2 (4-serving) packages
vanilla pudding regular
or sugar-free (cook and
serve)
3 cups milk
1 teaspoon brandy or
rum extract (optional)
2 packages lady fingers
1-1/2 cups heavy
cream
or 3 cups whipped
topping
1 pint strawberries
2 bananas
1 (15-1/2 ounce) can
sliced peaches
3 kiwi
Sliced almonds,
toasted, optional

The night before,
prepare pudding using
the 3 cups milk. Add the
extract to make Chantilly
cream. Chill.
The next morning,
whip cream (heavy
cream doubles when
whipped) or add
whipped topping to
pudding. Whisk until well
blended.
Wash and hull straw-
berries. Reserving 6, slice
the rest from the point
down.
Drain peaches. Peel
and slice bananas and
kiwi.

The continuing adventures of Samson


In my previous col- ,
umn, "The Adventures
of Samson," this so-
called "Real-Life Her-
cules," displayed his
strength in many spec-
tacular ways. Samson
also displayed many of
his weaknesses.
Samson was a Judge of
Israel and a Nazarite.
From birth he was
dedicated to the service
of God by special vows.
As a Nazarite, he prom-
ised to never allow his
hair to be cut.
Now let's pick the
"Continuing Adventures
of Samson" with Judges
16:4. "Some time later, he
fell in love with a Philis-
tine woman named
Delilah." The Philistines
had been fierce enemies
of Israel for forty years.
The five heads of the
Philistine nation went to
Delilah. They bribed her
with eleven hundred
shekels of silver each, if
she could discover the
secret of his great
strength.
Delilah cuddled up to
Samson, with innocent
eyes and an inquiring
tone. As she softly whis-
pered her question to
Samson, he was totally
intoxicated by her beau-
ty.
Delilah tried desper-
ately to discover the
secret of his strength, but
Samson decided to have
some fun. He played a
dangerous game with her
that ultimately ended in
tragedy.
Samson said convinc-
ingly to Delilah, "If I am
tied with seven raw
leather bowstrings, I will
be weak and helpless.
While Samson slept,
Delilah tied him with the
bowstrings.

With Philistine soldiers
waiting in ambush,
Delilah called out franti-
cally to Samson; "The
Philistines are upon
you!" Samson snapped
the leather bowstrings
instantly. The enraged
Delilah shouted, "Sam-
son you are making a fool
of me!"
Changing her
demeanor like an actress,
Delilah, sweetly purred,
"Please tell me how you.
can be captured."
Samson, with all of the
sincerity that he could
muster, said, "If you tie
me with new ropes,
which have never been
used, I will be as weak as
any other man." Just as
before, Samson broke
free.
Delilah, very angry, but
determined to win this
game, did not give'up.
Next, Samson instruct-
ed Delilah to weave his
hair into fabric and
tighten it with a pin. But
as expected, Samson
retained his strength.
Delilah retorted, "How
can you love me when
you won't confide in
me?"
. Finally Samson gave in
and told her his secret. :
"My hair has never been
cut," he confessed, "for I
am a Nazarite. If you
shave my head, my
strength will leave me."
Delilah sensed that
Samson was finally
telling the truth and sent
for the five Philistine
leaders.
They returned quickly,
with the silver shekels in
their hands.
As the gloating Philis-
tine leaders looked on,
Delilah lulled Samson to
sleep, with his head on
her lap. The leaders

brought in a barber to
shave Samson's head.
As Delilah began to
grasp Samson's powerful
arms, she seemed to feel
the strength leaving
them.
She shouted, "Samson,
the Philistines are upon
you!" The half-asleep and
clueless Samson sprang
up to face the Philistine
soldiers.
The Philistines soldiers
seized the weakened
Samson. They cruelly
blinded him and took
him to Gaza. They bound
Samson with chains, and
forced him to grind in the
prison.
Forced into slave labor,
Samson slowly started to
re-grow his hair, his
symbol of strength, but
the Philistines didn't
notice.

The Philistines held a
great festival to celebrate
the capture of Samson.
Half-drunk, the
Philistines were singing a
song of victory over
Samson, and clapping
their hands. They yelled
"Bring out Samson so we
can have some fun with
him!"
They brought Samson
out and stood him
between the two wooden
pillars supporting the

portico, the temple roof.
Samson asked his guide
to place his hands on the
two pillars.
The temple was filled
with three thousand
people, including the five
Philistine rulers. Samson
prayed, "Oh sovereign
Lord, please strengthen
me just once more."
Then Samson, with a
hand on each of the
pillars, prayed, "Lord let
me die with the
Philistines."
As Samson pushed, the
pagan temple came
crashing down, killing all
three thousand
Philistines.
The wooden pillars that
Samson pushed down
had stone bases.
Interestingly, archaeol-
ogists have found what
they believe to be the
ruins of this temple, with
a pair of closely spaced
stone pillar bases.
God loves you regard-
less of your mistakes and
failures. He will forgive
you, like he forgave the
revengeful, self-willed,
over-grown schoolboy
known as Samson! God
wants to be a dynamic
and vital part of your life.

God's kingdom today.

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 are no karat marks
to identify platinum.
In the United States plat-
inum is usually marked: PT
or PLAT. In Europe, plat-
inum is identified by the
following marks: 950 or
PT950. Since platinum is
the purest metal it rarely
causes an allergic reac-
tion. There is'an increased
interest in platinum jewelry
both in the US and
abroad,

Group travel becoming a growing trend in industry


To understand what
group travel is all
about, we need to go
back to the heyday of
group tours.
Some of us may remem-
ber the 1970s and 1980s,
when the Golden Agers
evolved.
These original Golden
Agers were joiners, and
many went to senior
centers, AARP meetings
and other social clubs that
began running trips.
In the Northeast, groups
went to such places as the
Poconos, Catskills, Mon-
treal and Atlantic City. The
winter escape was a 14-
day motor coach trip to
Florida. This meant three
days down on a bus and
three days back with eight
days in between in the
Sunshine State.
As their tastes evolved
and the Golden Agers
continued to travel, jet
tours throughout North
America and abroad came
into the picture. But the
trips were "one-size-fits-
all."
Groups were happy to be
away, everyone stayed
together, participated in


the same activities and ate
meals together.
But as the 1990s pro-
gressed, a new group of
mature travelers arrived
on the scene. They looked
similar to the Golden
Agers but were a bit more
sophisticated. These folks,
part of the "silver set,"
were already experienced
travelers.
Many had traveled for
work and were more
independent. Their tastes
were also more sophisti-
cated. They were used to
traveling independently as
well as in groups and were
not lining up in formation
like the Golden Agers.
In the mid-1980s, many
different types of groups
started to sprout up and
form travel clubs. Travel-
ing with people in the
same economic group was
the affinity that provided a
meaningful connection
point.
Other types of groups
were religious, which
brought people together
who shared a common
belief system.
.Alumni travel clubs are
another type of group that


GERALDINE BLANCHARD
Travel columnist
offers not just trips, but an
opportunity to relive and
strengthen the bonds of a
common educational
experience.

Enter the Red Hatters

In 1998, Sue Ellen
Cooper and a group of five
friends dressed in red hats "
in the spirit of the poem,
"Warning," by
artist/author Jenny
Joseph, for afternoon tea.
This gathering in Cali-
fornia was the first official
group of Red Hats.
Since then, the Red Hat


Society has created a
worldwide sisterhood by
forming thousands of
chapters around the
United States and in 30
countries.
Red Hatter groups
average between 20 to 30
members and most
chapters do some form of
travel as a group.
Women are also travel-
ing on escorted trips with
other women. Gutsy
Women, founded in 2002
by April Merenda, tapped
into a growing market of
independent women
travelers.
Limited to smaller
groups of approximately
20, the trips specialize in
unique experiences for
women.

We are family

Multi-generational
family travel has been
another emerging trend
for both independent as
well as escorted tours.
This style of travel,
called "togethering,".
identifies a growing trend
in which friends and


extended family travel
together.
The Walt Disney Co.
offers a package targeting
family groups called
Disney's Magical Gather-
ings. The trips are for
small groups of eight or
more travelers.
Another offshoot of the
increase in family vaca-
tions is the family
reunion.
While the family may
not all arrive in a motor
coach together, the desire
to share travel experi-
ences with family and
friends is. a hot trend.
Ready to participate in
group travel? Whatever
your likes or passions,
there is certainly a special
group tour for you.
Until the actual trip,
happy travel dreams.

about a particular com-

attitude that game
playing is a "complete
waste of time."
When new computer
users sit in front of their
computers with a task in

exactly what happens; they
get a new computer, decide

skills while trying to
accomplish their task?
This is a recipe for
frustration.
When new computer
users sit in front of the
computer with a game
loaded, and playing the
game is the only "task" at
hand, guess what? All the
pressure to produce is
-gone.
Now, mastering the
basic skills can come
naturally, because they
are not trying to accom-
plish anything.
Click, double click,
drag and drop, scrollbars,
all of these basic com-
puter operation terms
can be learned and
mastered with even
simple games such as
Microsoft's "solitaire."
Actually, the game
doesn't matter; it's the
idea of becoming famil-
iar with your machine
that counts.
When I was just a
fledgling computer user,
all I had loaded on my
machine was games. I
had no database pro-
grams, no office suites
and no spreadsheets.
When I sat in front of my
machine, it was to
destroy enemy tanks or
practice landings with
my flight simulator.
I remember spending
hours trying to get a
game to run properly
and, when it finally
worked, finding that the
challenge was not in the
game but in getting the
game to work on my
machine. I think I
learned more about
computers by loading
and playing games than I
ever did from any text-
book.
The big objection that I
get from people when I
suggest practicing with a
game is, "I have no, i
interest in that" or "I
did n'ibuy this computer
to play video games."
They're missing the
whole point.
It's not the game; it's
the skills you pick up as
you learn to play the
game that are important.
The fact that some of the
games happen to be a lot
of fun is just a coinci-
dence.
The thing to remember
is that-the computer
doesn't care whether the
program it's running is
productive or not. The
basics are the same; the
skills picked up in one
program can usually be
applied to other pro-
grams as well.
The best thing about
unproductive programs
is that even though you
produce nothing, you
acquire skills that will
stay with you for years to
come, and that's nothing
to sneeze at.

Do a little research before getting a pedicure


I gave up biting my
cuticles seven years
ago when I had cancer
and was having
chemotherapy.
I didn't want to risk
infections, but I needed a
boost to my spirits, so I
started having mini-
manicures that involved
no cutting, but just a buff
and some polish. It was a
great pick-me-up.
When we moved to

time, and I began to

think about branching
out to pedicures.
When I was diagnosed
with lupus, an autoim-
mune illness, I realized
that my immune system
was never going to be
strong, and infections
were always a possibility.
I was worried about
having pedicures, espe-
cially after seeing reports
of unsafe and sanitary
conditions at some
salons.
I decided to do a little
research to see if there
was a safe way to indulge
my feet without risking
my health.
People with compro-
mised immune systems
are not the only ones
who have to worry about
infections.
Diabetics are prone to
foot problems for a
variety of reasons,
including poor circula-
tion. Diabetics and
anyone with health
problems should consult
their doctor about
whether a pedicure is
safe for them.
When I was given a gift
certificate to a day spa, I
decided to find out
specifically what con-
sumers should expect in
terms of sanitation and
health concerns.
I spoke with Robin
Hall, a licensed aestheti-
cian at A Day of Delight
Day Spa in Stuart and St.
Lucie West.
She offered several
suggestions for people
concerned about spa
safety.
Avoid treatments if you
have a cut on your foot or
leg and shave legs 24-48
hours before a pedicure,
to lower the chances of
getting a staph.infection
in the cut
Always check with your
doctor about any med-


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well


ications you take.
The spa should also ask
about your medical
history and medications.
Some, such as blood
thinners, may lead to
bleeding. If you are on
aspirin therapy, corticos-
teroids such as pred-
nisone, being treated for
psoriasis, eczema or
other skin conditions, or
have any health prob-
lems, you should speak
to your health care
provider.
You may wish, as I do,
to have your nails filed,
buffed and polished
without having any
cutting.
. Pipeless pedicure
chairs are preferable
because they do not have
jets, which are difficult to
clean and may harbor
bacteria that can be
spread from person to
person.
If the spa or salon
schedules appointments
back-to-back, there may
not be sufficient time for
the tubs to be properly
cleaned.
Proper cleaning and
disinfecting takes more
than a swipe and a wipe
with a cloth and requires
sufficient time to do the.
job properly. Non-stop
business may mean the
equipment is not cleaned
properly.

Make sure the salon
seems clean and make
sure all implements are
sanitized in a medical
grade disinfectant.
After sanitizing, they
should be kept in closed
containers.
Disposable items, such
as pedicure slippers, "
should not be reused.
Some people like to
bring their own imple-
ments to use at the salon;
make sure that you clean
and disinfect them
properly after use.
The use of callus
blades and the removal
of calluses are prohibited
in every state because
cutting is involved and
that is considered a
medical procedure.
Calluses may be
smoothed, but they may
not be cut.
If you get a cut or nick
while receiving any kind
of treatment, the proce-
dure should be stopped
immediately and the cut
cleaned and covered with
a plastic bandage.
"It's important to
remember that we're not
doctors," said Ms. Hall.
"We never diagnose,
prescribe or give reme-
dies. It's not our job."
She tells customers to
see their physicians or a
podiatrist for any health-
related concerns.
I've been enjoying my
pedicures now; feeling
confident that my feet
are in good hands.

Confusion Over "Home
Costly for F
WEST PALM BEACH- When it comes to
the terms "Homestead Exemption" and
"Homestead Declaration," it's fair to say that
Floridians are more than a little confused.
Unfortunately, that confusion could spell
disaster for property owners who think they
have legal protection they don't have.
According to Tom Rucker, owner of
Homestead Declaration Services located in
Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, it's estimated
that over 90% of Florida homeowners don't
know the difference between the two terms,
and that could mean big trouble.
The Homestead Exemption is simply a tax
break, while the Homestead Declaration is a
sworn statement to claim property as a
homestead. Most property owners think that
filing for the former protects their property
from a forced sale, but it's the latter the
Homestead Declaration that they really
need to have.
The Homestead Exemption was, estab-
lished by statute to provide qualified home-
owners with a reduction in taxes. Contrary to
what many Floridians believe, as well many
lawyers and real estate agents, it does not
provide total legal protection of your home-
stead. It's not a constitutional right, and fil-
ing for the tax break does not fully protect a
property owner from lawsuits, judgments or
creditors.
On the other hand, the Hbmestead
Declaration can do just that. Also estab-
lished by statute, it allows property owners
to claim a property as their homestead and
to "designate" or "set it apart" to protect it
from a forced sale to satisfy creditors. A
homeowner can get the maximum amount
of homestead protection under the law for


stead" Terms Could Be
loridians
property up to acre inside municipalities
and 160 acres of land in unincorporated
areas, but only if he or she has properly
claimed such rights. To do that, the proper
Declaration form has to be filled out proper-
ly, notarized and recorded with the county
clerk.
"We have to emphasize that filing for the
tax break, the so-called 'Homestead
Exemption,' DOES NOT fully protect your
homestead as most believe," Rucker said.
"Unless you have filed a Homestead
Declaration, you only get the tax break. As
important as that may be, it doesn't legally
declare your property as a homestead, and
only that declaration provides you with the
full legal protection you need."
Rucker went on to say that every Florida
homeowner should file the Homestead
Declaration regardless of the value of their
home. "The declaration is one page long, it's
inexpensive to obtain, and might just save a
property owner from economic disaster,".
He noted, too, that county tax appraisal
offices are frequently unable to answer
questions concerning the designation of a
homestead and protecting, the property
from a forced sale.
Though they vary from one state to anoth-
er, homestead statutes are similar in intent.
They are designed to preserve family homes,
which might otherwise be taken in times of
misfortune or the death of the head of the
household. However, this protection is gen-
erally available if the declaration is filed in
advance of such a-catastrophe.
Property owners can learn more about this
important subject and obtain the proper
forms at www.Homestead-USA.info.

Advertising in


Spanish on TV


For those who missed
my earlier column on
this subject, I have
been advertising my Toyota
dealership on English
speakingTV
Why would I advertise in
Spanish on English speak-
ing TV when everybody who
watches speaks English?
There are two reasons.
First it "cuts the clutter."
The challenge to any
advertiser is for the com-
mercial to get noticed (and
mine sure did). The second
reason I spoke in Spanish
was to signal my respect to
those (or that of their
parents or grandparent)
whose native tongue is
Spanish. It is considered an
international sign of respect
to attempt to speak to
someone in their native
tongue. If you have ever
traveled abroad, you may
have experienced this. If you
have not seen my ad and
would like to view it, click on
this Internet link
www.youtube.com/Earl-
StewartToyota.
Little did I realize when I
first began to run my
Hispanic TV advertisement
what a stir it would cause.
The complaints started right
away, some in the form of e-
mails and some phone calls.
I averaged about five calls a
day and two or three e-
mails. There were some
positive comments, but
mostly negative. I began to
wonder whether I was doing
something that would hurt
my business, but I could see
no tangible evidence that
anyone had not bought a
car from me because of this
ad. About half of the calls
and e-mails were anony-
mous.
Recently, the press picked
up on this and there were
news articles in the Sun
Sentinel and Palm Beach
Post. This caused the tide to
turn to favorable com-
ments. Also, I'm getting very
positive feedback from a lot
,of Hispanics. I have riot
received on single negative
call or e-mail from anyone
of Hispanic descent.
Currently, the favorable
cofllmentfl af-e running
About 10:1.
I have gone from worry-
ing about whether this ad
would harm my business, to
actually wondering if this
may notbe the most
effective advertisement I
ever ran.
This whole personal
experience was like taking a
course in sociology. The
negative callers fell into
three categories.
The first; and most
numerous aboutt 50
percent), were the anony-
mnous callers. They would
call, state their outrage at
myad and then hang up.
The second were those
who did give their names,
but refused to listen to my
reasoning behind my ad.
These callers were less than
the anonymous (about 25
percent) and about the
same number as the third
category. These callers were
actually polite. They stated
their concerns and were
quite willing to listen to "my
side of the story."
The anonymous callers
were virtually all rude,
vulgar and profane. From
what I could garner from'
their one-way rants, they
were very, very angry. I also
detected '"fear" in many of.
their voices. Some sounded
like they had written their
words out in advance so
they could be sure they got
it right. These callers clearly
had no knowledge of what
my ad is designed to
accomplish. They seemed
to think that most of the
Hispanics in South Florida
don't speak English and are
here illegally. I hope some of
these callers will call back
and listen to my explana-
tion.
The second group was the
most disturbing to me. They
were not anonymous and
they were not nearly as
rough in their language, but
I was disturbed because I


'could not change their
minds even after they
allowed me to explain. I do
believe that most of them
hung up with less anger in
their hearts toward me, and
most of them dropped their
threat never to buy a car
fromane, but they would
not change their minds
about my ad.

EARL STEWART
On Cars


The third group was very
nice and civil: Although they
called to express dissatisfac-
tion to my ad, they wel-
comed my explanation. I
really enjoyed my
exchanges with these
intelligent and open-
minded callers. After
hearing my explanation,
they did a "180" and
understood my advertising
tactics. That's not to say that
they liked them and agreed
with them, but they under-
stood. They knew that I
meant no disrespect to
anyone, and that I was
simply atcar dealer trying to
sell some more cars. Several
said that they would buy
their next car from me.
- The sociological lesson I
learned (and am learning)
from this experience is as
follows: education must
always be a priority in a
society.
Ignorance is very danger-
ous. You cannot have
bigotry and prejudice
without ignorance being
part of the equation. I
learned this from the first
set of anonymous callers.
My next lesson is that
education isn't always
enough. If a person is born
and raised in a bigoted, :
prejudiced environment,
this can be imbedded in his
emotions so deeply that
education will not remove
his negative feelings. ,
Sometimes it takes more
than one generation of
knowledge and enlighten-
ment to free one of preju-
dice and bigotry. We know
that many of the Muslim
terrorists were highly
educated.
My most pleasant lesson
was from the third group
who were educated, open
minded and willing to listen
to another opinion. This
final lesson was that
educated, informed people
who were raised in a loving
environment can "agree to
disagree."
It was E Scott Fitzgerald
who said that the most
accurate test of a great mind
is the ability to hold two
opposing ideas in ones head
at the same time.

On road of life,

strangers are friends


we haven't met yet


house built on a
shaky foundation
will fall. A tree with
weak roots will soon
topple. A human life
without a strong founda-
tion will struggle and get
stuck, sidetracked or lost.
The foundation stones
are to create a spiritual
base of unconditional
love, then fain i1 love
and love of friends.
It is time we let gLo of
our fears and differences,
take a look at our simi-
larities and move for-
ward together as a team.
For this to happen, we
have to make a shift in
our mission in life. \e
have to surrender our,
lower will, ego and
'divided thinking, go
within, rediscover our
higher, spiritual nature,
bring it out and-set it
free.
A strong spiritual
foundation is one based
on unconditional ove
instead of hate, peace
rather than war, health
not disease, abundance
instead of poverty, faith,
instead of fear and joy
rather than sadness.
It all comes down to
the choices we make and
where we place our focus
and attention.
The lower will thinks in
a divided way, like good
and evil, right and
wrong, and positive and
negative.
The universal spirit or
will1 however, is-based on
the principle .of "like
attracts like."
What we sow we reap
back multiplied. The
supreme law is "tenfold
return."
If you are suffering
from hunger, fear, sad-
ness and other negative
conditions, you aren't
sowing the right seeds. If
you have a need, sow a
seed and help it grow. It
doesn't have to just be in
a garden. It can be in
every area of life.
If you are hungry in. the
soul, go out and find:
someone with a greater
need than your own.
Befriend a stranger.and
turn them into a friend.
My friend, Betty
Borden, always says, "We
change the world one
person at a time starting
with ourselves."
For a personal relation-
ship of any kind to work,
the individuals must first
be compatible instead of
competitive. Someone
always burns out in a
lopsided marriage.
Having a goal and mov-
ing it forward with
positive effort creates
teamwork.
When you reach the
goal, rejoice and cele-
brate the \victory. Move
forward again toward a
larger goal. This keeps
the heart in it. If the
heart is gone, hunger,
fear, anger, guilt and
sadness are the end
results. This is no way to
live.
Second, there must be
peace within the family.
We can't be at war within
ourselves and our own
people and expect to
survive. Stop the war.
Bring out the old-fash-
ioned values of spirit,
familylove and friend-
ships. This is the heart
and conscience at work.
It all comes down to

Jobseekers told to


dress for success


BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
ST. LUCIE COUNTY
When Robert McMil-
lan was released from
jail, he began searching
for ajob.
One place he visited to
conduct his search was
the One .Stop Career
Center on 29th Street in
Fort Pierce. Dressed in
blie jeans, a T-shirt and
work boots, Mr. McMil-'
lan was turned away
from using the comput-
ers to look at job post-
ings.
"They wouldn't let me
in. because they said I
didn't fit the 'criteria,"
Mr. McMillan said. "The
lady at the front desk.
said there .was, a new
dress code policy."
In fact, the One Stop
Career centers along the
Treasure Coast imple-
mented a dress code a
little more than a month
ago. The new dress code
is business casual,
allowing staff of the One
Stops to send job seek-
ers to interviews with
potential'employers.

The reason for the

Do illegalimmigrants help the economy?


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
'ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
Rosa; a 27-year-old
Guatemalan, is living in
fear.
As a Port St. Lucie resi-
dent' for more than two
years, Rosa is one of many
illegal immigrants' living
on the Treasure Coast.
Her most earnest desire
is to do the simple things
that most people take for
* granted: Get a. driver's
license, open a bank
account and be able to go
to.and from her job at a
fast-food restaurant with-
out having to, look over her
shoulder.
Her hopes were dashed
on June 28, along with
those of her common-law
husband and many of the
region's other undocu-
mented aliens, when a
long-awaited amnesty bill
died in the Senate. '
Rosa, whose last name is
being withheldel' ,upon
request, lives a sparse life


because she sends much of
her income to her mother
in Guatemala. Her biggest
concern, however, is for
her five-month-old son'
born here.'
"Sometimes I'm really
afraid that the immigra-
tion authorities will catch
me in one of their'
roundups and put me in
jail without my baby," she
said. "I couldn't bear to
think of being separated
from my son."
Similar stories could be
told.by other illegal immi-
grants up and down the
Treasure Coast, but
migrant workers and
immigrants are nothing
new to the region's. econo-
my.
What has changed in the
last few decades is the role
that they play in it. When
once they might have pri-
marily worked in the citrus'
harvest, today both legal
anrid illegal immigrants
play a substantial role in
the agricultural and con-
struction industries.


Jack Oliver of
Indiantown has seen first-
hand how immigration has
affected the region's con-
struction industry.
Mr. -Oliver, 57, has'
worked in construction
since 1968 and said the
demographics of local
workers have changed dra-
matically over the last 30
,years. .
"Up, until the time I left
Florida in 1986, the only
foreign people that you
saw were an occasional
French Canadian or other
snowbirds from'up north,",
he said.
; "You only saw one-tenth:
of one percent from some-,
place other than America.
' Twenty years later, I came,
back to work for the same
drywall company as a field
supervisor, and less than
five percent are domestic
Americans."
The worst part about the
change, he said, is that
salaries have stopped ris-
ing to keep pace with the
cost of living, which he '


attributes to companies
relying on immigrant labor
willing to work at a cheap-
er price.
". It [construction] used to
be a good career, in which
one could pay their bills
and send their kids to col-
lege," Mr. Oliver said.
"That's totally out of the
question now."
Don Santos, the presi-
dent of Santos Construc-
tion Company in Port St.
Lucie, agrees that the level
of immigrant labor in the
industry is high. According
to Mr. Santos,. some "80
percent of local construc-
tion workers speak English
as a second language."
Verifying their legal sta-
tus is a daunting task, he
said.
"They all have driver's
licenses, green cards, etc.,
and they have workman's
compensation," Mr. Santos
explained. "But in today's
world, whether that docu-
mentation is official, I.can't

BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
On paper, Palmeiras S.C.
was supposed to rout the
Port St. Lucie Hurricanes.
And they did.
The No. 1 team in the
Florida "Elite Soccer
League playoffs defeated
the No. 4 Hurricanes, 7-1,
to advance to the champi-
onship game. The win also
.kept Palmeiras undefeat-
ed (7-0-2) in FESL play.
"Absolutely it's a honor
to be in the champi-
onship. But it's not like we
haven't been in champi-
onships before," said
Palmeiras head coach
, Safet JIuseinevio. "No
matter who we play it will
be a 'tough game. We'll
have a game on our
hands."
Palmeiras striker Igna-
cio Calcagno had three
goals to help lead the
team based out of Palm
City.
"The defense was play-
ing too much up front,"
Calcagno said. "I saw a lot


of holes and we moved the
ball well."
For Port St. Lucie, the
loss marked the end of a
very tough first season.
With a roster that fields
more high school stand-
outs than off-season pro-
fessionals, Port St. Lucie
had to wait until the fifth
game of the season to get
their first win, a 10-1 rout
of Okeechobee. It would
be their only win of the
season.
But Port St. Lucielooked
impressive in a 4-1 loss to
Treasure Coast last month
and, despite their record,
had some thinking their
game against Palmeiras
would be closer. But with
their leading scorer Fab-
rizio Scaecia out of town,
and starting goalie Este-
van Sierra hurt, a full,
strength Palmeiras over-
powered the Hurricanes.
. "The experience on
their side was too much.
Hats off to them," said
Hurricane coach Jack
Digiorigio. "I told my play-
ers I was proud of what we


accomplished."

Galleons and strikers
in limbo
After 110 minutes of
brutally competitive soc-
cer, Treasure Coast
Galleons head coach
Gerry Schiavo selected his
team's representatives for
the game's deciding
penalty kick session.,
A 2-2 tie between Schia-
vo's Galleons and the
Space Coast Strikers had
survived both golden goal
overtime sessions, and
.with a. rowdy crowd in
attendance at Palm Bay
Regional Park Aug. 3, the
"scene was set for the most
,-dramatic finish- rof the
2007 Florida Elite Soccer
League season.
'And then the lights went
out.
The game had run
longer than expected, and
past the time allowed by
park officials, or, at least,
the timer on the field,
lights. The parks lights are
set on a timner to go on and

off, and at'10:25 p.m., they
went off-
Fans, coaches and play-
ers lined their cars against
the .playing field hoping
headlights would serve as
a makeshift light source,
but referees had already
called the game.
And a trip to the Florida
Elite Soccer League
Championship was held
in limbo.
Initially, the decision
was made to replay the
entire game on Aug. 5,
however, that plan was
replaced after both teams
could not field a full roster
on that date.
"The coaches want to
play, they love the game
too much to seethe game
be decided by :penalty
kicks," said Strikers gener-
al manager and player
Nick Lane. "We don't want
to show up just to take a
few shots."
But that mighi be exact-
ly what happens..
At the time of publica-
tion, the decision had
been made to have both
Treasure Coast (4-3-1) and
Space Coast (6-2) attend
the championship match
against Palmeiras, and
have the shootout before
the game with the winner
staying on to compete for
the trophy.
"This is what. we
thought was'"the most
fair," .said moAndre Ruette,
FESL- commissioner and
co-owner of the Galleons.
-The Strikers dominated
the season series between
the two teams, wining 2-1
in the season opener and
5-1 in the season finale.
Space looked like it was
going to continue that
dominance when the
stormed out to an early 2-
0 lead with goals from
Brian Lundy and Nick
Rasek.
But Treasure Coast for-
ward Hansen Woodruff
added a late goal before
halftime that cut the lead
in half and gave the
Galleons life.
Just minutes .into the
second period Anthony
Sierra tied the score with a
shot from the left corner
of the field that floated
just over the goalie's head
and rolled to the back of
the net.:
Both teams had repeat-
ed shots on goal the rest of
the game but neither as
able to get past exception-
al play by goalies Gustavo
Aragolaza (Treasure
Coast) and Adam Webb
(Space Coast).
The FESL Champi-
onship will be held either
Saturday, Aug. 11 or Sun-
day, Aug. 12 at a location
yet to be determined.

Treasure Coast hopes to

avoid sophomore slump

The newest high school in St. Lucie County looks
to build on last year's start


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
This time last summer,
Treasure Coast High
School athletic director
Dan Comeau sat at his
desk in a small and heavi-
ly overcrowded cubicle in
the back of Southern
Oaks Middle School in
Port St. Lucie.
Now, sitting in his
office down the hall from
the school's gymnasium,
Comeau prepares to,
enter his second year as
head of the Titans athlet-
ics department. And
things seem to be going a
lot smoother.
Comeau, along with the
rest of Treasure Coast
administration, were still
waiting. for construction
on their new school to
finish before they were
allowed to set up shop.
Although conditions
were not ideal, the goal of
launching a new high
school off the ground was
motivation enough.
"I thought we 'did well
with what we had last
year, but we're much bet-
ter off this year," Comeau
said.
Treasure Coast High
School might be entering
its second year, but they
still will get the, .new
school treatment, good
and bad.
Last year the Titans
football team had to
practice at nearby Whis-
pering Pines Park. This
year they have their own
practice fields.
The team also'has the
benefit of a real off-sea-


Dress.

people away, but we have
to hold everyone to th',
same standard if we
can."
The One Stop Career
Center in Fort Pierce had
a clothes closet for a
while, until four months
ago, when ,a fire
destroyed all of the
clothes.
Mr. McMillan said. he
has no problem follow-
ing the dress code, but
needs help right now get-
ting a job so he can pur-
chase the right clothes.
"I'm looking for any-
thing and I'm free for any
kind of work," he said.
"I'm 'just trying to save
money."

son as a team, whereas
last year many of the
players had not even met.
And during the school's
first full varsity football
season, that became
apparent. The Titans did
not win a game in 2006
with a team that featured
no seniors and very little
varsity experience.
But with a year under
their belt's, and new head
coach Bill, Kelley, Trea-
sure Coast is hoping to
change expectations in
2007.
"I think every sport has
its .ups and downs and
they roller coast as talent
goes in and out. We were
basically a JV team play-
ing a varsity schedule,"
Comeau said. "I. think it
was right because a lot of
juniors would be playing
on a varsity level at any
other school."
But just because the
football team wasn't suc-
cessful, .doesn't mean
that the whole depart-
ment went without
notice.
Tennis duo Melanie
Rifenberg and Morgan
Roberts reached the state
quarterfinals and several
Titans swimmers
advanced to regionals.
The most successful
Titans team was, girls'
volleyball, which,
advanced to the district
semifinals in 2006.
On Aug. 23, Treasure
Coast will open its gym
doors to the Treasure
Coast Preseason Volley-
ball Classic for a second
year in a row. And this
year the Titans hope that


the focus will be more on
a potentially successful
team, then the fact the
school is brand new.
"It was very over-
whelming in our first
year, but kind of exciting
that we were' the most
successful," said head
volleyball coach Kristi
Pacosha. "The girls are
excited and want to go to
at least regionals this
year."
Also new to the' Titans
athletic department will
be head basketball
coaches Rob Reckriagel
(boys) and Jill Willette
(girls). Both positions
became available when
,the previous coaches
decided to relocate, said
Comeau, not because of
records or the team's tal-
ent level.
"We didn't lose that
many coaches," Comeau
said. "Just coaches in
high profile sports."
Regardless of new
coaches or new expecta-
tions, Treasure Coast will
begin the 2007 season no
longer the new school,
but rather another school
to be reckoned with on
the field or on the court.
"I think as the school
matures, and progresses
the athletes will mature
and progress. We will be a
better program on the
court and the field, and
you will see," Comeau
said. "The expectations
were not that great as
winning goes (last year).
What you do is build a
program and cama-
raderie and togetherness
as a team. I think we're
there."

ith the upcom-
ing PGA Tour
V vent being
played from Oct. 22-28 at
Tesoro in Port St. Lucie, I
thought I should give all
of you a tip or two on
which days are best to
take off from work.
The best days to check
out an event on the. PGA
Tour are Tuesday, and
Wednesday. You should
drop by and witness the
craziness that goes into
preparing for a tour
event.
You may think that I'm
talking about the players
practicing and honing
their game. I am not.
Instead, I am speaking
of the mayhem that goes
on behind the practice
tee and practice green in
the secrecy of the parking


lot.
It is here that one finds
a sea of tour vans, a
recreational golfer's ver-
sion of nirvana.
The tour van is the

equipment tuned and set
upjust right every week.
Anyone who has
attended a NASCAR or
Formula One race can
attest to just how manic
things can be in the
garage, area at a race.
While golf normally takes
a laid back, slow pace
that is certainly not the
case in the land of the
tour vans.,
Most of us have a
favorite driver that we
use nearly every week
without .thinking of
switching it out. Some of
us haven't changed out, a
club in our bag in years.
Tour pros are constant-
ly tinkering with their
equipment. *
,One week they may
need their drives to carry
farther because of wet
conditions or fairway
bunkers. The next week
the conditions may call
for a low drive that rolls
more and stays below the
wind., Players may also
face a course with more
trouble down the left side
of holes, so they want a
club that is harder to
hook, thus taking that
trouble out of play with-
out adjusting their swing
or even their aim.
All of this takes place in
the tour vans.
Just about all of the
major companies, and
some of the smaller ones,
have a tour van'that fol-

Dancin' in the Street
began in 1988, just one
year after the formation of
Stuart MainStreet.
"The purpose was to
bring people back to the
downtown area," said Mr.
Malone.
In its first year, the


Dancin' in the Street cele-
bration took place on one
street in Stuart and attract-
ed 400 people. By last year,
attendance had grown to
11,500.
"We are really encourag-
ing dancing in the streets,"

director of Stuart Parks
and Recreation.

on their games and test
out different clubs on the
practice tee, a Taylor
Made representative
walks the tee area field-
ing questions from play-
ers.
Some ask about the lat-
est products from the
company and what it will
do for their games. Oth-
ers inquire about the
products they are testing
or place an order for one
they wish to try.
The rep then runs to
the van, order form in
hand, and gives the order
to the club builders. The
order winds up in a spot
similar to what you see at
your local deli when the
lunch crowd descends.
The club builder pulls
the next order, locates
the pieces he needs and
begins to assemble the
club. Once complete, the
club is run to the practice
tee for the player to try.
Usually, the player
knows with just a couple
of swings if the club has
any chance of making his
bag.
The usual routine is to
hit his old club, then try
the new one comparing
the feel, trajectory and
result.
More often than not,
the club heads back to
the van for a little tweak-
ing.
Sometimes the tweak-
ing involves putting in .a
different shaft or adjust-
ing the lie. There are'
times when the adjust-
ment is a simple as put-
ting on a different grip.

respite from their day.
However, when they do
get a chance to sit down,
they may enjoy a cool
drink from the large
refrigerator, sit down on
a soft sofa or catch up on
the golf news coming
from the television. It's
also a nice spot for play-
ers to sit down and relax
while waiting for their
equipment to be com-
pleted.
So, if you have the
opportunity to attend the

ber, try to drop by on
Tuesday or Wednesday

Mr. Santos believes that
a roundup of illegal immi-
W grants would severely
impact the region's hous-
ing industry.
"If they disappeared
tomorrow, our industry
would be very badly hurt
and we'd have difficulty
building homes," he said.
"Whether we could recu-
perate easily or not, only
time would tell."
Florida's agricultural
industry is extremely
dependent on immigrant
farm workers, who com-
prise almost 80 percent of
the total workforce, said
Walter Kates, director of
the division of labor rela-
tions for the Florida Fruit
W and Vegetable Association.
SHe also cited a U.S.
Department of Labor sta-
tistic stating that some 50
percent of U.S. farm work-

immigration issue is that
there are no laws to allow
undocumented or
Unskilled workers to come
here on a permanent
basis," he said. "That's why
I think a lot of these work-
ers are overstaying their
visas or coming here fille-
gally."
Undocumented agricul-
tural workers, he claimed,
do not take jobs away from
Americans.
"Not too many people in
this country are raising
- their kids to be migrant
farm workers," Mr. Kates
said.
- "When you start talking
about agricultural work-

'Homestead Declaration' has nothing to do with Homestead Exemption'
Do not confuse the two meanings THEY ARE NOT THE SAME! Most homeowners believe that filling for the
tax break under 'Homestead Exemption' fully protects their home from judgments, liens and creditors. It does
not! But, when you declare your property as your 'Homestead', it gives you enormous protection and every
homeowner should do this regardless the value of their property. You can download a Homestead Declaration
form for married couples or a single person from the below website, and it might just save your home from eco-
nomic disaster one day. You may never need the protection the Florida Constitution gives a homeowner under
the Declaration of Homestead, but it is better that you have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

bill failed to pass Senate
muster.
Hundreds of local resi-
dents reportedly took part
in a public protest of the
bill at the Roosevelt Bridge
on May 23. One of the
protest organizers, Sue
Hilton, said this was her
first major attempt at
political activism.
"When I heard that our
Congress was rushing a bill
through, alarms went off
in my head," she
explained. "Immigration is
a major issue that has to
do with national security
and economics, and I just
don't think that's the way
major issues in our coun-
try ought to be treated."
Ms Hilton is concerned
about the effect illegal
immigration has on
national security.
"You lock your doors at
night to keep out people
that you don't know," she
said. "Americans should
also have that right to
lock their borders'and let
in who they feel is safe to
let in here."
The CEO of the Latin
Chamber of Commerce on
the Treasure Coast, Bobby
Rodriguez, agrees that the
flow of illegal immigration
should be stopped, but he
said most Chamber mem-
bers believe that some sort-
of status should be given
to the undocumented
workers in the area.
"I definitely think they
should seal the borders,
and then give opportuni-
ties to the families that are
already here," he said. '"We
feel that they should be
given some type of status
for now, until the criminals
or whatever could be
weeded out."
He added that the Latin
Chamber members them-
selves are divided on the
fairness and legality of the
amnesty issue.
"Some of them feel that
they had to wait and come
here the right way and
become legal residents
and U.S. citizens," Mr.
Rodriguez said. "They feel
an amnesty's not fair for
the people who've been
waiting for years to come
here."
