BY WENDY DWYER.
For Hometown News
Last week, while most
of the world was sleeping,
someone stole Sally's
dreams.
And Abdul's. And
Bobby's, Chandra's and
Mallory's, too.
Those are chimps that
were to be transported
from New Mexico to Fort
Pierce for a better life.
It only took a moment
or two for the thief to pre-
vent that from happen-
ing.
While the driver of a
custom white Ford F350
pickup was inside catch-
ing a few winks before
heading back to New
Mexico to pick up another
load of eight chim-
panzees, someone drove
away with the rescue
truck that would have
transported the chimps to
freedom and a new life.
The truck belonged to


Save the Chimps, a non-
profit organization locat-
ed just west of Fort Pierce,
which houses chimps for-
merly used for Air Force
and biomedical research,
testing, and treatment
most of us could scarcely
imagine in the name of
progress and science.
Since 1997, the vision of
the 200-acre Save the
Chimps facility has been
to create and maintain "a
sanctuary where rescued
chimpanzees can live out
their lives without the
threat of ever returning to
a laboratory."
Carole Noon, founder
and director of Save the
Chimps said that on Aug.
3, the customized diesel
engine truck was stolen
near Interstate 95 at the
Fort Pierce exit. The 2005
pickup was not marked
and was not hauling the
specialized Save the
Chimps trailer at the time
it was stolen.

No cuts in staff, programs in city budget


BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE The
proposed city budget for
the 2007-2008 fiscal year
allows for some hiring and
no loss of services.
Port St. Lucie budget
director David Pollard said
his office planned for the
upcoming budget, and kept
the following year's budget
in mind, as the city is
expecting lower revenue
after the constitutional
amendment vote on tax
reform in January.

BY KIM COTTON AND

Staff writers
ST. LUCIE COUNTY
- Public health offi-
cials are urging extra
care with pool safety in
the wake of the recent
deaths of two girls, ages
1 and 6.
The call for caution
comes from the Port St.
Lucie County Health
Department, following
two separate Aug. 9
incidents. Dead is Kas-
sandra Casanola, age 6,
of Salerno Road in Fort
Pierce. The other vic-
tim, 1-year-old Adriana
Krug of Port St. Lucie,
was taken to Palms
West Hospital in Loxa-
hatchee where she, died
on Aug. 11.
"Our heartfelt sympa-
thies go out to the fami-
ly and friends of Kas-
sandra Casanola," said
St. Lucie County Sheriff
Ken Mascara after the
first incident. "We
believe she lost her life
in a tragic accident."

multi-year approach," Mr.
Pollard said. "We will have
no layoffs and no change in
programs."
That amendment, if
passed by voters, would
give homeowners the
option of a super-exemp-
tion of paying property
taxes on just 25 percent of
the value of their homes or
the traditional homestead
exemption of $25,000.
Mr. Pollard presented the
proposed budget to the City
Council at their bi-annual
retreat, held at the Port St.
Lucie Community Center
onlAug. 9 and Aug. 10.


The proposed budget is
more than $617 million,
with the city's taxing rate
lowered to 4.2172 per thou-
sand dollar valuation, down
from the current year's mill-
age rate of 4.4399. This is the
lowest millage rate for the
city since 1989. Approxi-
mately $50 million of the
budget comes from proper-
ty taxes.
Because of a hiring freeze
the city put in place this
year on the heels of proper-
ty tax reform by the state
Legislature, the city was
able to save money and able
to add staff and carry over

year, Mr. Pollard said.
"We want to make sure
. we can survive the second
year," he said.
The city will add employ-
ees in the Police Depart-
ment and the Parks and'
Recreation Department.
The budget allows for five


new officers, two code
enforcement officers and 23
people to staff the new Civic
Center, which is scheduled
to open nextyear.

amendment passes in Janu-
ary, Mr. Pollard expects the

New radiation

surgery comes to


the Treasure Coast

Cyberknife procedure is not
invasive, reduces recovery time


BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
When Mike Easom's
tumor in his left ear
began to grow again, he
wanted to try a new
treatment.
When he was diag-
nosed with acoustic
neuroma, a benign
tumor that grows on a
nerve in the ears, in
2002, Mr. Easom, a Fort
' Pierce resident, under-
went a radiation treat-
ment at the University
of Miami. The treat-
ment did not get rid of
the tumor, and five
years later it started to


grow again.
This time around, Mr.-
Easom decided to try
Cyberknife surgery. He
will undergo three
treatments to get rid of
the tumor, and has
already had one.
"It is a lot less painful,
and I am thankful they
came up with it," Mr.
Easom said. "It's a bless-
ing."
In his previous treat-
ment, Mr. Easom
endured a metal frame
screwed into his head to
control the radiation
going into the brain.

Law enforcement offi-

who has seen the truck
with Florida license
C549KM to contact the
Fort Pierce Police Depart-
ment at (772) 466-1805.
All information provided
will remain anonymous.
"We are extremely
upset that an unfortunate
situation such as this
occurred," said Ms. Noon.
"This theft cripples the
critical work of our
organization." Indeed,
because there is no vehi-
cle to haul the truck, at
least eight chimpanzees
which were ready to
make the trip from the
Save the Chimps facility,
in Alamagordo, N.M. to
the sanctuary in Fort
Pierce, have now been
separated from the 20 or
so members of their
social and family group
that are already here.

Little more than five
years ago, a weekly,
community newspa-
per started out, giving
residents of Port St. Lucie a
much-needed dose of local
news.
Shortly after Hometown
News started, Managing
Editor Tammy Raits gave a
hometown girl a chance at
sharpening her journalism
skills, while bringing
community news to
readers.
Now, after five years of
growing with Hometown
News, I must bid farewell.
My family and I are
moving on to the mountains
of North Carolina. I've
accepted a position cover-
ing schools and health in a
small town outside of
Asheville. It's a family-
owned paper and does the
same job of covering
community news as
Hometown News.
I love covering communi-
ty news. Everyone has a
story to tell and it has been
my job to bring those stories
to you, both bad and good.
Through my work at
Hometown News I've
discovered how many
residents truly care and are
willing to step up and help a
neighbor in a time of need.

During and following
hurricanes Frances, Jeanne
and Wilma, I witnessed .
neighbors helping neigh-
bors, even when it was the
first time meeting. I saw
extension cords running
across streets, so those who
didn't have generators could
get some reprieve from their
neighbors' generators.
Speaking of hurricanes,
after Katrina hit New
Orleans, residents came out
in droves to help those
residents because we knew
how it felt. We were in their
shoes at one time (or in our
case three times). I wrote
stories about residents
traveling to New Orleans to
help rebuild, residents


donating clothes and school
supplies so children in the
region affected by the storm
could go to school and feel
as though their world was
normal again.
Our own Habitat for
Humanity even built a
house here in St. Lucie
County for a family dis-
placed by Katrina.
I've also reported on
groups who have helped out
locally. The St. Lucie Medical
Center Auxiliary has raised
$56,000 year aftet year for
scholarships to Indian River
Community College and the
Port St. Lucie Volunteer
Ambulance.
There are many, many ,
more fabulous organiza-
tions and people in this city
that go above and beyond to
help their fellow residents.
Of course, along with the
good has come the bad. I've
'covered my share of child
abuse, drug busts and
murder cases.
A more unusual story I
wrote about was a man who
visited his aunt who lived in
Port St. Lucie. He was
hearing voices in his head,
and while his aunt was at
work, he cut off the head of
her little dog. I didn't enjoy
writing the story and at least
one reader did not enjoy

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 o
your smile- healthy., c

Pollard said;

Vice Mayor Jack Kelly said
he was one resident who

"Why should we penalize

Vice Mayor Kelly said. "They
expect this along with big
kids like me. I want to see
holiday lights."

I got a message on my

REVIEW

Council makes move toward
garage sale restrictions
At the City Council retreat last week, the council
tentatively agreed to a proposal that would allow resi-
dents to hold only two garage sales a year per address.
Residents would have to obtain a permit, at a cost
of $15. The permit would allow up to six signs to be
posted on city streets, advertising the sale.
The permits would give city employees a way to sort
out permitted sales from unpermitted ones through
standardized signs.
Residents could obtain the permits until 5 p.m. on
the Tuesday prior to the weekend sales from the Busi-
ness Tax Division, which will manage the permits.
All permitted garage sales would also receive adver-
tising on the city government access TV station, PSL-
TV 20, as well as the city Web site and e-newsletter.
Downtown to get one less parking garage
An $11 million parking garage that was planned
for Port St. Lucie's downtown has been cut from the
plans.
The garage was cut to save money in the Commu-
nity Redevelopment Area, where the downtown is
currently under construction. The CRA is experi-
encing lower market values on property, causing
less funds for the area.
Downtown will have one parking garage, which
will be the biggest building in the city and will-have
803 parking spots.
That garage is expected to cost the city $11.4 mil-
lion.
Jewelry store has
an early morning break-in
The owner of St. Lucie Jewelry store reported
approximately $10,000 in jewelry stolen from the
store during a break-in at 3:45 a.m. Aug. 8, accord-
'ing to a Port St. Lucie Police report.
An officer with the Port St. Lucie Police Depart-
ment responded to the Eastport Plaza store on U.S.
1, after an alarm went off. The officer found the
front door smashed in.
A woman who was near the scene told the officer
she pulled up to the mailbox near the store and
heard the alarm go off, but did not see anyone at
the scene, the report stated.
Grant money sought to expand
Riverwalk boardwalk
The Port St. Lucie Council said it plans to seek
grants from the state to extend the Riverwalk
boardwalk along the North Fork of the St. Lucie
River.
The council wants to build a $2.5 million exten-
sion ix without using city funds.
The extension would make the boardwalk 25 feet
wide to allow for a variety of uses,, including bicyr
cles.

By KIM COTTON
Staff writer
TALLAHASSEE The
eldest son of Florida Sen-
ate President Ken Pruitt,

week from unknown
causes.
Ken Pruitt Jr. died Aug.
8, in Tallahassee, where
he worked as a network
administrator at Talla-
hassee Memorial Health

Mr. Pruitt's father is
Senate President Ken
Pruitt, from Port St.,
Lucie, who was sworn
into that office in Novem-
ber, with his family at his

"President Pruitt and
his family appreciate the

friends and family during
this difficult time," said,
Kathy Mears, spokes-


woman for
Sen. Pruitt.
"The enor-
mity of the
loss of Kenv
Jr. is inde-
scribable.
During this
time of
grief, the l
family is Ken Pruitt Jr.
asking that
their privacy be honored
and respected."
Mr. Pruitt Jr., 29, is sur-
vived by his 4-year-old
daughter Chloe, along
with five brothers and
sisters, several grandpar-
ents and both parents.


According to a release
on his death from Ms.
Mears, Mr. Pruitt Jr. was
described as being best
known for "his incredible
sense of humor, excellent
computer knowledge and
the kindness he demon-
strated to friend and
stranger alike."
A memorial service for
Mr. Pruitt Jr. was sched-
uled in Tallahassee for
Aug. 11.
In lieu of flowers, the
Pruitt family requested
that friends of Mr. Pruitt
Jr. honor his memory by
donating to a charity of
their choice.

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

Don't let this happen to you

I recently went through an amazing situation with a
person in Port St. Lucie that breeds cats.
The cats I am talking about are pedigree bengals.
This breeder sold me a cat that was a retired F2 female.
The cat didn't work out for us, so I returned the animal
back to the breeder to resell her.
I put an ad in the paper, but go no hits.
After a while I found a person to purchase the animal,,
but the breeder was against where the cat was going-
like it was really her business.
The breeder told me that she would buy the cat back
from me, but that she needed two weeks to come up with
the money.
I agreed to the two weeks.
Three weeks went by with no word from the breeder.
I called and received no answer. The breeder's e-mail
address was no longer available.
I went to the breeder's house, and there was a for sale
sign in the front yard.
The breeder moved out, and took my cat with her with-
out notifying me about the move, or calling me to come
and get the cat since it belonged to me.
I had'to go through a lot of channels to locate this per-
son.
She didn't want to discuss why she took my cat.
I finally got my animal back through her representa-
tive.
That baffled me again. -
Why a representative?
This breeder would not speak to me at all, knowing
that she took my cat.
This lady should have, without a doubt, been.arrested
for larceny.
I decided not to press charges at the time, but I'm sorry
now that I didn't.
To all of you people that may be thinking about pur-
chasing or getting a pedigree animal in the future, make
sure you do some research on the breeder before you
purchase the animal so this will never happen to you.

Botanical garden not needed

This is to the Port St. Lucie mayor, and her Mickey
Mouse council.
You are cutting back on taxes by not doing Christmas
decorations, or Fourth of July celebrations, etc., for all of
the holidays.
But, I see that (City Manager) Mr. Cooper has plans for
a botanical garden that is going to cost the city over
$200,000.
Where is that money going to come from?
You people are stupid, stupid, stupid.
Mr. Cooper, worry about your own backyard botanical
garden, don't worry about whether or not Port St. Lucie
needs one.
You don't know how to spend your money; don't spend
the taxpayer's money.

Don Coopers' salary

Allow me to indulge in a little fantasy.
(City Manager) Don Cooper makes $165,000 a year.
Here's what I could do with $165,00 a year.
I could visit McDonald's 40,000 times in a year, and get
extra value meals; &


My wife and I have been having marital problems. I
could visit my marital councilor 2,000 times in one year
at $80 a pop.
I have a better one.
I am a humanitarian. I could feed an entire village of
30,000 children for month, at $5 a pop.
This is just a fantasy on my part, however; unfortunate-
ly it is Don Cooper's reality.

Port St. Lucie airport

I read in the paper, with great amusement, that Mayor
Patricia Christensen thinks Port St. Lucie needs its own
airport because one of the questions she gets asked by
the big companies is where they can land their private
jets.
If our local airports, about 15 minutes away from St.
Lucie West, are too far for them to drive, too bad.
They should think about people that live in Port St.
Lucie, and have to spend 45 minutes or more a day, twice
a day to get to and from work.
They can hardly afford to put gas in their cars.
I feel bad for these executives who are only causing
more problems for this city.
If they ever do get here, and put their own airport in, I
wish one of them would come and buy my home so I
could get out of this town.
If they put an airport in, they won't need an observa-'
tion tower because our city managers, council members,
and mayor all have their heads in the clouds anyway.
This is my opinion, and I don't mean to be critical, but
this town is going to hell in a handbag.
I saw the same thing in Palm Beach County twenty
years ago.
It's just surfacing now with all of the corruption being:
brought out.
Welcome to Port St. Lucie.

He is hot playing professionally

I read the story about the local kid who is playing hock-
ey in upstate NewYork, but I have to tell you, it is not pro-
fessional.
They can give him an allowance, but it is not profes-
sional.
I played professional hockey, and what he is playing is
just Junior A.
You may want to retract that, or make a correction in
your paper.
Anyone who comes down here from up north, and was
involved in hockey, and there is a lot of us, is going to dis-
credit you and tell you what I am telling you, but proba


bly not as nice.
A lot of us sort of take that as a slap in the face.
I'm happy for the kid, but he is not playing professional
hockey. Not even at the lowest level.
It is Junior A hockey. There is an age cap, and the
money that they are allowed to give them is strictly an
allowance. It is not a salary.
Could you just change that?
I'm open to hear what you have to say.

Editor's note: In the July 27 article in Hometown News
about hockey player Dean Wolfe, we incorrectly referred to
the deal he signed with the Elnira Junior Jackals as a con-
tract. The Jackals are not a professional franchise but a .
Junior "a" league.
Even though players receive a stipend and housing, they
retain their amateur status.
We regret the error

Unnecessary irrigation

This is to my next-door neighbors and all of the people
to the people in my neighborhood.
Why are people who are are at home, now out of town,
running their sprinklers?
What a waste of resources.
There is a switch on the sprinkler box that says manual.
Take the time to put it on that option,
There is no need to be irrigating twice, or three times a
week, with all of this rain and humidity..
These will be the same people that will complain about
all of the mosquitoes, dollar weed and lawn fungus.
These. are college-educated people. I guess there are
some things you can't learn in college.
If you are going to complain about someone chopping
down trees and wasting our resources, you should realize
that running water when it is not needed is also wasting
resources.
There is no difference.
Please stop wasting our water, and take a moment out of
'your busy life to turn off your sprinklers.

Befuddled George

That George masquerading in our White House
appears to me like a child with toys with no explanation
of what to do with them.
Hence, that permanent smirk he sports.
He seems very frustrated, as are many America citizens
with his shenanigans.'

Letters


Immigrants equal cheap labor

Each and every week there are a number rants printed
in the paper that target "illegal immigrants" as the cause
of many of society's ills.
The writers choose their words carefully so as not to
come off racist or xenophobic.
But, historically, whenever the necessity has arisen for
cheap labor, immigration policies have taken a decided-
ly racist stance.
People of color have always provided that service
either as slaves or illegallaborers; people of "European
descent" have also been exploited, of course, but were
granted citizenship.
When the U.S. needed bodies for the Civil War, it
opened its borders to Irish immigrants, and granted
them citizenship.
.When the U.S. needed cheap labor to fuel the industri-
al revolution, Italian and Russian immigrants were given
citizenship as well. ,
But when cheap labor was needed to work the fields of
Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California, Mexicans


were allowed to enter illegally, work the fields, and then
leave without chance of citizenship.
And, when the U.S. heeded free labor to fuel colonial
America's cotton-based economy, Africans were brought
here in chains and weren't granted citizenship until
1866, .
To say that people from south of the border need to do
things the "right way" is a slap in the face to anyone who
has been abused by our nation's race-based economic
structures.
It's worth remembering little thing called the North
American Free Trade Agreement, a trade agreement that
drove Mexican farmers off their land by allowing cheap,
corporate-grown corn to be dumped on their economy,
thereby undercutting existing market prices and forcing
farmers to sell at a loss.
Because of NAFTA, Mexican farmers ended up having
to work in maquiladoras, U.S. corporate sweat shops,
until interest moved to Asia.
Then, with no other viable options, many more start-
ing coming across the border to provide cheap labor for
our growing, wasteful economy.


People don't cross the border and risk death simply
because they like our way of life. They do it to survive.
To target them as the cause of our nation's ills is a very
backward and nationalistic way to view the world.

Hope Running Bear
Port St. Lucie

Clean up the nation

We need pornography and drugs cleaned out of our
nation.
We are sick and tired of fighting the same battles
over and over again, and we must win the war.
Turn those animals that use these things in to the
authorities.
Send them a powerful message that they are losers.
We must stop them at ,once, and help our law
enforcement officers clean out the bad element.

Dear Readers, Do you
know everything
there is to know
about your hometown?
I thought I did.
When I moved in 1995 to
this beautiful coastal
region, I made my home in
Fort Pierce. But it wasn't
until a few days ago 12
years later that I learned
a little piece of historical
trivia: that a man named
Edward Binney, inventor
of the Crayola Crayon, also
once had a home in the
area.
Recently I've relocated
to Cape Canaveral, and got
to watch my first shuttle
launch just a few weeks
ago. I learned an invalu-
able lesson as new beach-
side Space Coast resident:
If you want a good viewing
spot, leave for home a few
hours before the actual
launch! There were
motorcycle police direct-
ing bumper-to-bumper
traffic in my normally
sleepy neighborhood.
Right now, some
longtime Cape Canaveral

President, Farm Credit
of South Florida

ranking officers
tend to bQ pretty
conservative
people even more so
when the bank we
represent is a member's
cooperative and our
primary obligation is to
protect the assets of our
members. So, when such
a banker goes out on a
limb to sound an alarm
about a political issue,
that's a significant
event.
At their meeting on
Aug. 21, the St. Lucie
Board of County Com-
missioners will consider
a change in open space
requirements for the
agricultural planned
unit developments.
If this change is
approved as outlined in
proposed Ordinance 07-
044, it will create a
chilling effect on agri-
cultural lending in the
county.
The changes in lend-
ing practices that this
ordinance will create
will accelerate the
demise of local agricul-
ture especially small
farms. And because
farming is still an
important part of the St.
Lucie economy, the pain


farmers suffer'will be
felt to some degree
throughout the county.
Farm Credit of South
Florida lends on thou-
sands of acres of citrus
and cattle land in St.
Lucie County. If this
ordinance passes, it will
materially change the
value of agricultural
land.
Our loans are legally,
tied to the value of the
land. We can only
approve loans of up to
85 percent of the
appraised land value.
If the land value goes
down, our ability to lend
to farmers is restricted.
This would be true for
traditional mortgages as
well as other types of
loans that use land
value as security.
Farmers in this area
have had a series of hard
years with freezes,
hurricane damage,
canker and citrus
greening.
Farm Credit, along
with other lending
institutions, has been
able to lend to farmers
so they can meet their
financial obligations
because the underlying
value of their farm land
is based upon the
"highest and best" use
of that land.
Because farming is not


an especially profitable
business even in good
years, the agricultural
(or production) value of
the land may be far less
important than the
value of the develop-
ment rights for the land.
' This means that even
farmers who have no
intention of ever devel-
oping their land regular-
ly use the potential
development value of
that land to stay in
business by borrowing
money during tough
years.
The appreciation in
land values over the last
five years has allowed us
to continue to lend to
farmers who want to be
able to continue to
farm. Their land value is
like their cash in the
bank and they can tap
into it when they have a
freeze or other difficulty.
If this ordinance
passes, we'll have to
take into consideratiorf
the loss in land value
and there won't be much
left to lend on. In
addition, long-term
agricultural mortgage-
loans typically have five-
or ten-year balloon
payments built in to the
terms. If the property
no longer has the value
to support the mortgage,

Jimmy Carter hit it on the head. He certainly is the worst.

Study in school

As a senior lady driving past the school the other day, I
noticed all of the young people with backpacks on their
backs. I felt sorry for them. My gosh, they are going to have
back problems when they get older. They have to carry all of
their stuff home in the heat.
A lot of the children don't have places to study when they
get home, anyway. They have families, and things are going
on, and they don't have time to study. .
Why don't the schools have a study hour for the kids dur-


ing the last hour of the day? Then, let them go home and
relax.
I think that is why a lot a kids quit school. They can't keep
up with the homework. They don't need homework. Let
them do it in school.
When they get home, let them do their chores, or let them
socialize with the family or other children. Many of them
have afterschool jobs.
I When they get home the television is, going, or the other
children in the family are playing. As a result, they go back to
school the next day, and don't have their homework. They
get in trouble, and they get upset. Then, they quit school.'

Shirtless and toothless
Recently we have been making the newspapers up in
New York pretty regularly, not only with the shooting on


the highway where the whole family got killed, but now
with the abuse case that started out in NewYork.
In a recent conversation with a family member there, it
appears everyone that is interviewed is shirtless.
My daughter wanted to know if anyone here in Florida
owns a shirt. It seems that the men are all walking around
bare chested.
The next question concerned dentists. She wanted to
know if we have any dentists here in Florida because
everyone she sees interviewed is missing their front teeth.
I found that quite humorous.
And last, but not least, she watches a cop show quire often,
and half of the programs show trailer parks. She wanted to
know if there are any homes in Florida, or does everybody
live in trailer parks. ,. ':
It seems to all of those people that live up north and don't

To Roth or not to Roth, that is the question


hakespeare may have
asked "to be or not to
be" in Hamlet, 3:1, but
today, the more pertinent
question is "to Roth or not
to Roth."
Back in 1997, Congress,
enacted what became
known as the "Roth IRA"
after it's main supporter,
the late Senator William
Roth.
With an ordinary IRA,
you make tax-deductible
contributions to your
retirement account. The
earnings on the account
are tax-deferred. When
you take distributions, the
entire amount is taxable as
ordinary income. You must
start taking distributions
beginning shortly after you
reach age 70. The distribu-
tions are taken over your
life expectancy.
By contrast, with the
Roth IRA, the contribu-
tions to the account are
not tax-deductible. While


this may not seem to be
such a great deal, with-
drawals from the account
are tax-free.
In fact, even the earnings
on the account are tax-
free, not just tax-deferred.
To make things even
better, even after you
reach age 70, you are not
required to start taking
distributions like you must
from traditional IRAs and
other retirement plans.
After your death, the
distributions your benefi-
ciaries are required to take
each year are the same as
with a regular IRA, but
they are not taxable even
to your beneficiaries.
In order to make a full
Roth IRA contribution, you
must have income under
$95,000 if single or
$150,000 if married filing
jointly,
There is a phase out of
the contribution above
that income level and if


^<- 3

your income is above
$110,000 if single or
$160,000 if married filing
jointly, no Roth IRA
contribution is allowed.
Contribution limits are the
same for both types of
IRAs, $4,000 in 2006 and
2007 and $5,000 thereafter.
Further, if you are age 50
or above, you may make
an additional $1,000 "catch
up" contribution.
Congress expanded the
Roth idea to 401(k) plans.
Now, if your employer's
plan allows for it, you may
designate part of your
401(k) contribution for the
year as a "Roth 401 (k)"
contribution.
The maximum contribu-
tion to a 401(k) in 2006 and
thereafter is $15,000. If
you are age 50 or older,
you may make an addi-
tional "catch up" contribu-
tion of $5,000. These
limits apply to both
regular and Roth 401(k)
plans.
You may convert from a
regular IRA to a Roth IRA if
you have income below
$100,000. In the conver-
sion process, you would
pay income tax on the
balance of the regular IRA,
but then would never pay
tax on the converted IRA
or its earnings upon
withdrawal.
In 2010, there is no


income limit for doing
conversions to Roth IRAs.
This would make. Roth
IRAs even more attractive
to those with higher
incomes and greater
ability to pay the tax upon
conversion..
Even before 2010, you
may be able to manipulate
your income by moving
income and expenses over
which you have control.
For example, you could
change your investments
so that you make less
income in a particular year
and more income in a
subsequent year. In the
year of lower income, you
would Roth the IRA.
Conversion can be very
powerful. For example,
let's say you are age 70 and
convert your $250,000 IRA
to a Roth IRA. Now, rather
than having to take
distributions that will
drain the IRA over your life
expectancy, no distribu-
tions would be required
until after your death.
If you earn 8 percent on
the funds and live 18 more
years, your assets will
increase to $1,000,000.
When your beneficiaries
withdraw the assets over
their life expectancies, the
distributions will be tax-
free to them.
A qualified estate plan-
ning attorney can help you
plan for your retirement
plan assets so that you and
your beneficiaries can.
make the most of them.

f you spend any
amount of time surfing
the Web you are bound
to run across the name
"Skype."
You may occasionally
see a "Skype me" button
on a Web site or even
embedded in an e-mail.
Skype is quickly becom-
ing the leading "voice over
IP" service on the Inter-
net.
It's a program/service
that turns your computer
into an easy-to-use
Internet phone allowing
you to place calls to any
other Skype user for free
or any "real" phone
number for a very low fee.
I know, I know. People
have been talking about
cheap (or even free)
phone calls over the
Internet for years and I
think I even wrote a
column about another
VOIP service, Vonage
awhile back, but what is it
about Skype that warrants
a closerlook? What is it
that makes Skype special?
Well for starters: price.
It's cheaper than other
services out there, certain-
ly a lot cheaper than your
standard "plain old
telephone" system.
It's free to call other
Skype users and outgoing
calls to regular, non-Skype


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This

phones ("SkypeOut")
range around 2 to 4 cents
a minute. For a low yearly
fee, about $30 as I write
this, you can sign up for
unlimited outgoing calls.
Or periodically, you can
load up on credits to use
when making outgoing
calls. There is a little meter
at the top of the program
that tells you how many
credits you have left as
you use them.
Also, they have special
rates for international
calls.
Inbound calls are
handled a little differently.
You can either be set up to
receive inbound calls only
from other Skype users or
you can, for a lowyearly
fee, buy a "Skypeln"
number. Pick whatever


area code you like and
start receiving calls. If
your computer is turned
off or you don't answer,
you have the option of
letting the call go to voice
mail or forwarding the call
to another number, such
as your cell phone.
The quality is surprising-
ly clear.
So far, since Fve been
using it, no one that I have
called on a regular phone
has suspected that I was
calling from my computer,
and no one that has called
my SkypeIn number has
even suspected that they
were talking to me on my
computer, at least the
ones that I've asked
haven't anyway. So far, I
have not heard any
distortion or experienced
any of the issues that
plagued early attempts of
VOIP
There are even some
pretty sophisticated
devices out there that
work with the service;
things such as desk and
cordless phone modules
that plug into the USB
port of the computer,
giving the system a true
telephone feel rather than
that "ham radio operator"

Special ingredients make for great


soups and very easy desserts


Hello, smart shop-
pers. Today we'll
pretend it's cool
enough for soup (just
turn down the air condi-
tioner) because I have two
wonderful soups to share
with you.
Deciding I must be
smart and eat lentils, not
my favorite grain, I set
about finding a recipe.
When I couldn't find one
that had all I wanted, 'I
created my own.
Then there's mystery
squash soup.
When we lived in Palm
Beach County, I ran
sewing schools under the
name "Learn to SewWith
Arlene." It was in the 1980s
when health restaurants
were all the rage. One day,
I visited a local restaurant.
When the waitress sug-
gested the squash soup, I
made a face.
"Oh, you must try it, it's
wonderful."
She was right. A subtle
undetectable flavor had
me asking for more. Of
course, she denied know-'
ing what was in the soup,
except summer squash.
A while later, a new
student happened to
mention she had worked
at the restaurant and, yes,
she had the ingredients.
How do you thicken a
low-fat, low-cholesterol,
low-carb soup?
Would you believe with
cashews?
Top it all off with Peach
Melba.
Enjoy, and see you next
week!

Smart shopping: The
guru's money-saving tips:
Buy store-brand chicken
broth. The price is better.
Remember, the only way
chicken broth can be fat-
free is if the chicken never
landed, but just flew over
the pot.

To your health: Nuts
have "good for you"
saturated fat.

LENTIL SOUP (NIB)
Low fat
Serves eight-10

This recipe is large, but
leftovers freeze great.

1-1/2 cups (12 ounces)
dried lentils, any color
2 tablespoons extra
virgin olive oil
1 beef soup bone with


meat, about 1 pound
2 large onions, (3
inches in diameter), 2
large stalks celery with
leaves,
2 large carrots and 2
large cloves garlic,
coarsely chopped*
1 (14.5 ounce) can
diced tomatoes
1 (10-ounce) can
ROT*EL chopped toma-
toes with green chilies
(medium heat)
8 cups water
2 teaspoons dried
thyme leaves
2 large bay leaves
1 (14.5 ounce) can beef
broth
Grated Romano cheese

Wash lentils and pick
over to remove any,
stones, drain; set aside.
Place oil in a very large
(6-quart) pot. Cut beef
off bone, trim fat and cut
in 1/2-inch squares.
Place meat and bone in
pot and start browning.
You can chop the
vegetables by hand or do
as I do; pulse in a food
processor until pieces are
chopped in good size
pieces. Add to pot as
meat is browning and,
cook until onion is
golden, about 10 min-
utes.
Add next 5 ingredients;
bring to a boil. Add
lentils, cover and simmer
for 1 to 2 hours adding
more water if necessary.
Stir occasionally.
Add broth, and salt if
needed. Discard bay
leaves. Serve with a
sprinkling of grated
cheese. Add some low-fat
whole-wheat biscuits
(Pillsbury Grands are
delicious) and you have a
one pot meal.

MYSTERY SQUASH
SOUP (NIB)
Low fat
Serves three-four

1 small onion, sliced
1 teaspoon canola oil
1 pound summer
squash (yellow, crook-
necked)
Scrub with a vegetable
brush, remove ends and
cut into chunks; do not
peel
3/4 cup chicken broth,
homemade or canned
1 tablespoon soy sauce

Romancing the Stove

3/4 cup roasted
cashews (rinsed if they
are salted)
1 scallion thinly sliced
(optional)

Saute onion in oil until
golden. Add squash,
broth and soy sauce;
cook until squash is
tender (about 10 min-
utes). Cool for 20 min-
utes.
Using blender, blend
well. Add.cashews and
continue blending. If too
thick add a little skim

PEACH MELBA (NIB)
Serves two

This is an easy dessert
created at the turn-of-the
19th century by Chef
Auguste Escoffier in
honor of opera singer
Nellie Melba. It can be
fat-free if you use fat-free
ice cream or frozen
yogurt and sugar-free if
you use a sugar substi-
tute equivalent to the
sweetness required.


3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 large firm peach
1/2 pint ripe raspber-
ries
or 1/2 package frozen
raspberries
2 tablespoons sugar
Vanilla ice cream

Mix sugar and water
together in a small
skillet. Place over heat
and stir constantly until
boiling begins. Lower


heat, cover and boil for 5
minutes. Remove from
heat; stir in vanilla.
Wash, pare, cut into
halves and pit the peach.
Set syrup over medium
heat. Add peach halves
and simmer 3 minutes.
Chill in refrigerator.
Sieve the raspberries;
add the 2 tablespoons
sugar.
In pretty dishes, place
drained peaches cut side
up. Top with ice cream,
drizzle with syrup (I
spiked mine with peach
schnapps when cold).
Top with berry sauce.
Note: Sliced, toasted
almonds sprinkled over
the ice cream is delight-
ful.

Farm
From page A7


when the balloon is due,
the mortgage will not be
able to be continued.
If 80 percent of a land
parcel cannot be devel-
oped, the value of that 80
percent is virtually zero.
So, a farmer's borrowing
power can only be calculat-
ed on the value of the
remaining 20 percent.
Even worse, it is also
likely that this ordinance
will create a chilling effect
on an already difficult real
estate market. If land value
per acre drops as a result,
or if there are no sales (and
thus no current compara-
ble values on which to base
an appraisal), we will have
no way to determine
existing land value and we
wouldn't be able to loan on
the property at all. Without
these loans, any downturn
in agricultural profits will


force farmers to either sell
their land for development
or, if this is not possible,
walk away from it.
Agriculture is still an
important part of St. Lucie
County's economy. Farm-
ers employ people,pay


taxes, purchase equipment,
vehicles and supplies and
hire professional services.
County commissioners
need to carefully consider
the impact of this hastily
drawn ordinance.
If it is passed, the


impact will be felt not
just by the farm commu-
nity, but throughout the
county's economy.


Just a few inches of water can damage everything

Knowing seven facts helps


car buyers make best choice


I was talking to a friend
of mine this morning,
and I asked her what
the one thing was that
worried her most about
buying a new or used car.
She told me that it was
paying more for a car
than she intended to or
could afford.
I have written in past
columns that you should
know exactly what car
you want to buy before
you do your comparison
shopping. You have to
compare "apples and
apples."
You must also have a
firm idea of the. most you
will. pay for that car. If
you don't know that you
can buy a specific year,
make, and model for
your maximum budgeted
price, go back to the
drawing board and come
up with a car you can
afford. Even if you think
you can, but find out that
you can't after compari-
son shopping, don't buy
anything until you have
chosen another car that
you can afford.
When I say "know the
price you can afford,"


Sip



EARL STEWART
On Cars


don't think I am talking
about "monthly pay-
ment." Too many people
equate price with month-
ly payment.
In fact, car dealers rely
on this confusion to
make big profits. If you
really want to "make a
car salesman's day," just
walk into the dealership
and say you'll buy that
car just as long as he can
keep your payments
under a certain amount.
When you have told
him that, you are telling
him that you don't care
about the asking or
selling price, whether
you buy or lease, what
interest rate you pay,
what your trade-in
allowance is, how well
the model you chose
retains its value or how
long you finance the car.
Eachof these items is
inextricably tied togeth-
er.
Many dealers add a
supplementary price
sticker alongside the
federally mandated
Monroney label. It often
looks exactly like the
Monroney, and buyers
assume it is part of the
official manufacturers
suggested retail price.

This extra label adds
thousands of dollars to
the real MSRP. Be sure
you determine the real
MSRP and the real
discount from MSRP.
When you lease a car,
the leasing company
owns the vehicle at the
end of the lease, not you.
That's why lease pay-
ments are so much lower.
If you buy the car, not
nailing down the interest
rate by competitive
shopping allows the
dealer to make a lot of
money in finance
reserve. This is the
money banks pay dealers
for charging a premium
over the interest rate that
the bank charges the
dealer (called the "reten-
tion rate"). The interest
profit to the dealer can
be in thousands of
dollars on a single
transaction.
If you don't competi-
tively shop your trade-in
and check research
sources on the Web, the
dealer selling you the car
may not allow the fair
market value for your
trade-in, just another
way of increasing his
profit.
Some makes and
models of cars depreciate
faster than others. After
three years, some models
retain up to 61percent of
their original cost, but
some retain as little as 25
percent. This is a huge
price difference between
two cars that you don't
find out about until you
trade that car in.on your
next purchase.
You can finance a car
for 12 months and up to
72 months. The shorter
the length of time, the
lower the interest cost.
Don't be tempted to
finance a car for longer
than 36 months just to
get the payment down.
You can understand
why it's not as easy as it
sounds to have a firm
idea of the most you are
willing, or can afford, to
pay for a car.
The selling price and
monthly payment are
just two of seven items
that you must have a firm
grasp of. There is also
lease or buy, interest rate,
trade-in value, resale
value of the car you are
buying and length of
financing.
If you know only six of
the seven, you have left
the car dealer a loophole
that can cost you money.

FLivo,










W T have been doing
a lot of talking
about what to do
before a hurricane hits,
but this column will focus
on some tips on what to
do after a storm has
passed.
So far, this season has
been extremely quiet, but
as we are getting into
August, that could change
fast.
The best thing to do is
always be prepared for the
worst and, above all, have
a plan.
If you are like me, one
look at the yard and it
makes you wonder where
you should even start
when planning your
cleanup effort.
The first tool you will
need is a good quality
chain saw. Gas is preferred
over electric because gas
chain saws have more
power and also if your
power is out, you will not
be able to use your electric
chain saw unless'you have
a generator.
Before you start cutting
your trees, be sure to take
a full survey of your yard.
Confirm that there are no
power lines entangled in
your work area and also
that there are no large
dangling limbs that could
fall and hit you once you
start working.
If a large tree needs to be
cut down, it is probably
best to leave that to an
expert tree service.. In past
storms, most of my tree
debris was already on the
ground and simply had to
be cut up and taken to the
curb.
Once you have all the
large debris removed and
cut up at your curb, re-
survey your yard for other
damage that may have
been hidden within the
larger tree branches.
When trying to clean up
small twigs and leaves
from an area that has
either steppingstones or
gravel, a great tool to use
for cleanup is a gas blower.
After Wilma, I had a large
garden area that was
covered with lava rock.
Trying to use a rake to get
the debris was also picking
up all the lava rock.
I brought out the trusty
gas blower and about 97
percent of the debris was
magically whisked away.
In fact, as a preliminary
task before raking, I
successfully removed a
good deal of debris from
the lawn area with the
blower. This made the next
pass with a regular garden
rake much easier. ,
Once you are done with
that, a pass with a
mulching lawn mower will
really put the finishing
touches on your yard
I used all these methods
in 2005 after Wilma with
great success.

plant in your yard, take a
look at the southern
magnolia;
This is a large, broad-
leafed evergreen tree that
can grow to be 60 to 90 feet
tall. The tree can also have


extremely draught resistant
and requires only minimal
care once it is established. I
have very seldom had to
give the tree any extra water
other than the normal
amount that I use on my
lawn.
Since pine trees surround
my house, I have a very
acidic soil and that is one of
the reasons the tree is so
happy where it is located.
If you do have an acidic
soil environment, you can
supplement the southern
magnolia with a soil acidifi-
er, such as Miracle Gro, for
acid-loving plants, or you
can use a good quality plant
food designed for acid-
loving plants.

a trunk diameter of up to 3
feet. The tree's, trunk is
usually very straight and
erect.
The tree boasts large
leaves that have a leathery
texture. The leaves have a
dark green color with a
slight rusty look on the
underside. They form a
handsome cone-shaped
silhouette against the
Florida skyline, but the
main attraction is the
beautiful flowers the tree
produces.
The southern magnolia
boasts large, fragrant
flowers that can be as large'
as 12 inches in diameter.
The flowers typically appear
in the spring and summer.
I personally enjoy the
wonderful appearance of
the southern magnolia. I
planted mine about 20 years
ago in the front yard and I
have enjoyed the wonderful
flowers every season since.
The tree held up without a
scratch through the storms
of 2004 and 2005. It is also

TRAVEL



A slow and steady pace makes



climbing Kilimanjaro a reality


There's only one way
to start this article
and it's to say, "God
bless, Godbless."
For you see, Godbless
was the guide who got me
to the summit of Mount
Kilimanjaro last July.
Godbless (his actual
name) is from Kiliman-
jaro's Chagga tribe. At 17,
he was a porter and at 32
he's now head guide. So,
bowing to his expertise, I
followed him like a lem-
ming for five grueling
days, walking behind him
pole pole (in Swahili:
slowly).
He forced me to adjust to
Mount Kilimanjaro's
19,344-foot height by
walking at a snail's pace,
while others sped by. As a
result, I suffered no
altitude sickness. I dutiful-
ly became his shadow for
70 kilometers (44 miles) as
he and I walked together
from beginning to end.
I admit to grumbling at
the monotony of staring
endlessly at dirt, rocks and
his footsteps. I groaned
when I finished one hill,
only to see another. I lived
to stop for water, catch my
breath or take a photo-
graph of the amazing
vistas before me. Godbless
was kind and gentle, but
strict.
I knew Godbless and our
team wondered if I'd really
make it to the summit.
After all, I was "mama" to
them, though I never
asked how old you are if
you're called "mama." This
little "mama" who took
twice as many steps to
reach the summit as the
men was determined,
though.
I'd been thinking of
climbing Mount Kiliman-
jaro for 20 years. It's known
as the highest mountain
on Earth you can climb
without serious training


SUSAN DREW
Travel columnist

and so it seemed doable.
I soon realized it was
really difficult. It wasn't the
trail, the weather or the
altitude that got to me; it
was hiking every day for
six hours uphill and even
longer downhill. It was the
mental challenge of
endless walking.
I also hoped to climb
Africa's highest mountain
before I was 60. With 60,
approaching, I decided to
try after leading a group
safari in Kenya. I was
nearby, Tanzanian's health
requirements had eased,
the weather was good and
a friend'wanted to try. So
the stars seemed aligned.
He and I chose the
Marangu Route a long,
gradual trail where we
stayed in huts, not tents.
The cost wasn't cheap,
but the unheated huts
were adequate, complete


with mattresses and
pillows. Each hut slept
four and we shared ours
with a pleasant mix of
international folks.
Food was surprisingly
good. Eggs and sausage for
breakfast, bag lunches at.
mid-day and inventive
pasta dishes generally at
night.
Sometimes I thought
about the deluxe cham-
pagne breakfasts we'd just
had in Kenya, but why
torture myself?
When we arrived daily at
our huts, our. duffle bags
were there and tea was
served. We also got a bowl
of warm water for wash-
ing, the closest thing to
showers we'd ever see.
I won't describe the
ladies' flush toilets, except
to say the outhouses were
far superior. Basically, life
was glorified camping,
made more comfortable
by our team.
Each morning, we were
up at 6 a.m. After breakfast
and re-packing we'd hit the
road. It's said you climb
through all Earth's ecosys-
tems when you climb
Mount Kilimanjaro.
We walked through lush
rainforests one day and
hauntingly beautiful
moorlands the next.
Finally, we trekked
through the high desert,
making our way to our
third set of huts. At 15,450
feet, we found everything

a


cold inside and out.
Conditions were bleak,
especially our first view of
the sheer vertical climb to
the summit.
The ascent began at
midnight. Dressed in
heavy clothing, with ski
poles and headlamps, we
set out together. As usual, I
was left in the dust, except
for Godbless.

Safety
From page Al
said. But after the children
went into the house to get
dressed for dinner, Kassan-
dra snuck back into the
pool. It is unclear how long
she remained in the water
before one of the other
children saw her at the
bottom of the pool and
called for her grandfather.
Mr. Cobas pulled Kassan-


dra out of the pool, Sheriff
Mascara added. St. Lucie
County Fire District para-
medics took the child to
the Indian River Memorial
Hospital, where she was
later pronounced dead.
Meanwhile, in an unre-
lated incident, Port St.
Lucie police continue to
investigate the case of
Adriana Krug,. who was
found floating in her
grandmother's pool.
According to Officer


Robert Vega, Port St. Lucie
Police spokesman, Adriana
has been in the custody of
her grandmother, Joann
Krug, for some time. The
girl's mother, Amanda
Krug, came to the house in
the 2700 block of S.W.
Drake Court to visit Adri-
ana.
Officer Vega said Aman-
da told her mother she was
going out on the patio to
smoke a cigarette and took
Adriana with her. Joann

then went into her bed-

"A short time later she
comes out and sees Adri-
ana face down in the pool,
still strapped into her
walker, and Amanda was
asleep on a chair," Officer
Vega said. "Right now We
are still trying to gather all
of the information to find
out what went wrong."
. It was unknown last
week if there would be any
charges filed.


"We will forward all the
information to the State
Attorney's Office for them
to make a determination
about charges," Officer
Vega said.
Four ways to stay safe

Chimps
From page A I
The facility in New
Mexico, once owned and
operated as the Coulston
Laboratory was a bio-
medical facility known:
for its abuse and disre-
gard for the Animal Wel-
fare Act.
While that facility has
improved 100 percent'
since Dr. Noon acquired
it and began making
immediate improve-
ments to benefit the
chimps housed there, the
sanctuary environment
of the Fort Pierce facility
has been specifically
"designed to nurture and
stimulate these, sensitive
and complex primates by
creating a secure and
enriching environment,
including the construc-
tion of a three-acre island
on which to safely express
natural behaviors," said
Ms. Noon.
The long-time goal has
been to allow the rest of
the 150 chimpanzees left
at the Coulston facility to
'"migrate" to Fort Pierce,
where they would no
longer be housed in
cages, and would be
allowed to socialize and
live without fear or isola-/
tion. The theft of the
transport vehicle effec-
tively halts any further
migration until it is found
or replaced.
"Part of the group is
already here," said volun-
teer Jen Feuerstein. "Now
some of them will have to
spend another week or
month living in a cage.
For all of us here in Flori-
da, that is the biggest
heartbreak; the wait
they'll have to endure."
Even though the truck
was insured, Save the
'Chimps must wait a mini-
mum of 30 days before
the organization can
begin the process of
replacing the transport
vehicle, which was cus-
tomized and capable of
hauling the 38 Save the
Chimps trailer, which
houses up to 10 chimps, a
veterinarian, monitors,
detectors, food and
appropriate supplies,
including a generator,
which was also stolen
with the truck.
Ms. Noon said the cus-
tom-built truck will have
to make a total of at least
26 trips between New
Mexico and Florida
before all the chimps are
safely relocated. Ideally,
Save the Chimps would
like to see the truck
returned, undamaged,
but if that doesn't hap-
pen, ,the group would
welcome the donation of
a truck with a fifth wheel;
the type of hitch needed
to pull the rescue trailer.
In addition to the trans-
* port vehicle, Save the
Chimps is always in need
of supplies and donations
to help maintain the pris-
tine facility and provide a
healthy and comfortable
lifestyle for the chimps.
Ms. Feuerstein says indi-
viduals are welcome to
visit the group's Web site,
www.savethechimps.org,
to learn more about the


facility and its current
needs, or to become
acquainted with some of
the residents both in Fort
Pierce and those in New
Mexico who will hopeful-
ly be joining their family
and friends before too
long. Individuals, busi-
nesses and families are
also always welcome to
sponsor the migration of
one of the chimpanzees,
too, to help defray the
costs of moving.
For additional infor-
mation, contact Save the
Chimps at (772) 429-
0403.

Radiation therapist Modesto Jean Jr. explains to Mike Easom what to expect during his
tumor treatment with the Cyberknife surgery. A Cyberknife treatment center opened in


June in Stuart.

Surgery
From page A1
With the Cyberknife
treatment, Mr. Easom
wears a mesh mask to
help doctors guide the
radiation beams.
Cyberknife surgery is a
robotic device that a
team of surgeons and
radiation oncologists use
to treat many forms of
cancer or tumors any-
where in the body. The
device, which was
approved by the Food
and Drug Administration
in 2001, allows doctors to
control the beams of
radiation into a patient's
tumor.
"We are able to deliver
a high dose of radiation
with extreme accuracy in
a relative short period of
time," said Dr. Silvio Gar-
cia, a radiation oncolo-
gist with the Cyberknife
Treatment Center in Stu-
art. "It doesn't eliminate
chemotherapy, but it
replaces some traditional
radiation treatments."
Dr. Garcia, along with
Dr. John Robinson, Dr.
Sunil Gandhi and Dr.
John Afshar, work at the
Treasure Coast's first
Cyberknife center. Prior
to the center opening in
June, patients who
wished to receive the
treatment had to travel to
Palm Beach County.

you have access to wire-
less Internet, eliminating
the need to have a com-

there's even conversion

cheap, that let you con-

I was reading about one
system that (when con-
nected to your house
wiring) lets you plug in
ordinary household
phones (wired, cordless,
etc.) into any jack in the
house and be able to
make and receive Skype
calls.
With my current phone
bill as high as it is, I could
see how a system like that
could save a lot of money.
If you like the idea of
making cheap long
distance calls without a
lot of hassles setting it up,
point your Web browser to
www.skype.com and read
up on it. The software is
free to download and
sports a guarantee that it's
free of spyware and other
malicious software.
The site is laid out well
with information readily

"It's really exciting
technology and to bring
to the Treasure Coast this
kind of revolutionary
cancer treatment to the
community is something
very important for St.
Lucie Medical Center to
be a part of," said Synetta
Armstrong, spokes-
woman for St. Lucie Med-
ical Center in Port St.
Lucie. "Before this' was
opened, patients had to,
travel to Palm Beach
County for Cyberknife
treatment, and now it is
in our own community."
Cyberknife treatment
allows doctors to admin-
ister treatment to destroy
a tumor anywhere in the
body without invasive
surgery. Patients receive
treatment at the Stuart
center without anesthe-
sia or a long recovery
period.
Dr. Gandhi, who spe-
cializes in lung cancer,
said the procedure is
ideal for patients who
could not otherwise
undergo traditional sur-
gery.
"A big problem is a lot
of patients are not good
candidates for lung can-
cer surgery," Dr. Gandhi
said. "They usually have
other ailments, such as
heart problems or have
had a stroke or they can't
tolerate surgery."
The Cyberknife proce-
dure also damages less

"The key is the accura-

much larger doses in a
shorter period of time. It
not only, destroys the
cancer, but also improves
the quality of life."

with the highest level of

tice could give.
She is never without

Thank you for keeping
my mother healthy and
with us today.

Quality service

My husband and I were
forced to join a HMO due to
the fact that Medicare has
terminated the America's
Health Choice contract.
As far as we are con-
cerned America's Health
Choice has the best bene-
fits in the area, from the
wellness program to the
level of care they gave us.
Medicare has closed the
doors of the best medical
company around due to, as
they stated, an allegation of
serious plan misconduct.
We don't see it.-
They healed me from
heart surgery to a broken
foot.
The doctors were won-
derful and caring.
In the paper it stated that
Medicare wanted a smooth
transition, but they
switched us to a PPO, not
even another HMO.
We had to switch back to
an HMO because Medicare
forced us into a PPO in
which we cannot afford the
medication.
Medicare should have
asked us, as patients, what
we think.
Any government agency
can look through any busi-
ness and find something
wrong.
Who's to say Medicare
didn't set America's Health
choice up.
What about the good care
they gave me? Doesn't that
matter to Medicare?
I called Medicare to let
them know my thoughts,
and they blew me off.
For all it matters, I want
the public to know what a
wonderful company Amer-
ica's Health Choice is.
They saved my life.
Now, that's quality service.

Live a good life

The recent Rave, "Is it
possible" brings a mes-
sage of compassion and
reason to a problem of
great complexity; so
called illegal immigra-
tion.
Migrant workers have
been welcomed as a part
of our culture for many
years. I remember them
working on the potato
farms on Long Island over
50 years ago.
It is unethical to' use
people and then discard
them; this should not be
the American Way.
Most Americans believe
in some version of the
Golden Rule.
The one I like best was
proposed by Felix Adler,


founder of the New York"
Society for Ethical Cul-,
ture, in his book "An Ethi-
cal Philosophy of Life,"
"Act so as to elicit the best
in others and thereby in
thyself."
However, the author of
this rant limits this to
pleasing God, which has
many definitions.
I believe we should add
another one, making it
consistent to good.
It also limits this to
those who believe we are
"one nation under God,"
which does not appear in
any part of our Constitu-
tion.
We are "one nation
under our Constitution."
"We the people of the
United States, in order to
form a more perfect
union, establish justice,
insure domestic tranquil-
ity, provide for the com-
mon defense, promote
the general welfare, and
secure the blessings of
liberty to ourselves and to
our posterity, do ordain.'
and establish this Consti-'
tution for the United-
Sates of America "
I'm a member of the
Humanists at Barefoot
Bay, the Humanists of'
Florida, the American
Humanist Association, aw
former member of the'
New York Society for Ethi-
cal Culture, and a found-
ing member of the Long'
Island Ethical Humanist-
Society.
I have been associated
with hundreds of human-
ists who guide their lives
by knowledge, science,
reasoning and compas-
sion. I have never found-
any who are less ethical-
than the believers in any
God or Gods.
SWhether you believe in
God, or not does not mat-'
ter so much, whether you,-
believe in Buddha, or not,
does not matter so much.
You must lead a good
life."

Pakistan: No
cooperation, then no
more money

Tell me if I've got this
right: On ABC news
there's a report on the
,terrorist training camps,
in Pakistan, with even a
(graduation) ceremony.
The U.S. wants to go in
and destroy these camps,
but Pakistan won't allow,
it.
(In) the same report, it
was stated that the U.S. is
giving so many millions
of dollars to Pakistan to
help fight al-Qaida.
The U.S. should tell
Pakistan, if we can't go in,
there's no money.
,No wonder we're losing,:
the war against terrorism..

Again, I followed his
footsteps, looking at dirt
and stones for hours. Often
I begged to look at the stars
for inspiration. I never
thought of turning back,
but I yearned for daylight to
break the monotony. The
trail was mostly scree, loose
soil and pebbles. Two steps
forward, one back.
I was shocked to see
people ahead, rushing
down the mountain due to
altitude sickness, and I was
unnerved to hear others
closing in from behind.
Eventually, I let them all
pass.
I continued to stop and
gaze at the stars until I saw
the first light of dawn.
Grabbing my camera, I
took my sunrise photos not
from the summit, where I
should have been, but from
where I was. The summit
would come.
With dawn I had renewed
energy and eventually; the
.peak was in sight. My
persistence had paid off.
Godbless was so happy,
he actually danced.
As I neared the summit, I
heard a French climber call
out, "Keep going. You have
so much courage."
I almost cried. When I
finally reached the summit
I did cry. At long last I could
see the crater, the glaciers
and the real "snows of
Kilimanjaro" and took
photos to prove it.
Unfortunately, I was also
slow descending, exhaust-
ed from the climb.
Once down, I was forced
to walk five more hours to
ourlower huts, totaling 14
hours of walking since
midnight. The next day, we
had another eight hours to
go to reach the park gate.
Here my friend and I
received our certificates,
stating we'd reached the
summit. Again, it was hard
to hold back tears.
So thank you, Godbless
for everything, in spite of
mypre-dawn meltdown
when I said, "I hate this
mountain." You are the one
who kindly stuck by me
every step of the way and I
will never forget you.
I hope that all future
climbers have a great guide
like you and that they
follow your wise mantra of
pole pole.

'Crimes of the Heart' a

heartfelt exploration of families


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer


Beth Henley's comedy/melo-
drama "Crimes of the Heart" was
the first play ever to win a
Pulitzer Prize before it was
produced on Broadway.
The story of the three Magrath
sisters, assembled at their
childhood home in Mississippi
to deal with several family crises,
has become a staple for commu-
nity and summer stock theaters,
and the Pineapple Playhouse will
bring the sisters to life from Aug.
30- Sept. 16.


Mercedes Richmond, who is
directing the production, says
that the play has both drama and
comedy..
"It's a story about these three
sisters and how messed up their
lives are, but they're Southern,
so they are wacky, too." She says.
"It's not a heavy drama, and
there are some really funny
parts, but it's not a family show.
It's really a chick flick."
The Magrath sisters Lenny,
Meg and Babe have gathered
because their grandfather is ill
and because Babe, the youngest,
has shot her husband and faces


jail time.
He's not dead because she
aimed for his head but missed
because she was nervous, and
shot him in the stomach instead.
It's hard to believe there is
anything funny in either situa-
tion, but in the playwright's
hands, there's comedy in
tragedy.
For Ms. Richmond, there is a
personal connection to the
show.
"I pushed to do this play
because it's the first show I ever

saw," she says. "It pushed
me toward being an
actor. It's important to
me. I really wanted to
direct this show."
Ms. Richmond turned
to directing when, as an
acting student, she had
to direct a full-length
play.
"I loved it," she says. "It
was an amazing process,
better than acting. When
you're acting,-it's more


internal and about
yourself. When you're
directing, it's about
building something. My
actors are my palette. It's
creative, and a bit like
being a mom."
Ms. Richmond is very
excited about her cast,
which includes several
actors she's worked with
before and some new
ones, as well.
"It's an awesome cast,"
she says.
"Camille Hooper is
Lenny, Charlie Tooch is


Meg and Brenda Kuban is
Babe. Melissa Raulston is
the irascible cousin,
Chick, who harasses the
girls because she's so
embarrassed by them.
,Patrick Campion plays
Doc, one of Meg's old
boyfriends, and Colby
Dempsey is Barnette,
Babe's lawyer. My assis-
tant.director is Gail
Searles; she's learning the
ropes."
If you like dark humor,
some tears and more
than a little bit of crazy,


go see the play at the
Pineapple.
It would be a crime not
to.
"Crimes of the Heart"
will be performed at the
Pineapple Playhouse, 609
Weatherbee Road, Fort
Pierce, from Aug. 30-Sept.
16.
Performances are at 8
p.m. Thursdays-Saturday
and at2 p.m. on Sundays.
Tickets are $15; call the

House of Refuge lecture
planned at the Elliott Museum
Linda Geary, Keeper of the House of
Refuge at Gilbert's Bar, will give a talk
as part of the Elliott Museum's "Sum-
mer Learning Series. The talk, at 2 p.m.
on Aug. 23, will focus on the later
history of the house.
The Gilbert's Bar House of Refuge was
one of 10 houses of refuge built along
the sparsely populated east coast of
Florida in 1876, at a time when sailing
ships dominated world commerce.
Built on an outcropping of the Anasta-
sia Formation that underlies much of


Florida, it is the only one of the 10
houses still standing.
To reserve a seat for the lecture,

Make sure children's immunizations are up-to-date


My first column,
two years ago, was
about back-to-
school immunizations.
How quickly the time has
gone. It's been a privilege
and a pleasure writing this
column for the past two
years. I have heard from
many of you and appreci-
ate your comments. They
keep me on my toes.
Changes are coming.so
quickly in medicine that it
is a challenge to keep up.
Charles Alexander, chief
of the Bureau of Immu-
nizations for the Florida
Department of Health,
says that while there are
no new vaccine require-
ments this year for chil-
dren attending school,
there are three vaccines
recommended for adoles-
cents.
The first is Tdap, which
provides protection
against tetanus, diphtheria
and pertussis, or whoop-
ing cough, and is recom-
mended for 11 and 12 year
olds. This vaccine can be
substituted for the dose of
Td vaccine that is required
for all students entering
the seventh grade.
The second recommen-
dation is the meningococ-
cal (meningitis) vaccine,
which is recommended for
adolescents ages 11 to 18
and especially for students
entering college and living
in dormitories.
The rate of meningitis,
an inflammation of the
lining of the brain, is twice
as high for those 17-20 as it
is for the overall U.S.
population, so this is an
added prevention for
students living in dorms.
Additionally, a new
vaccine, the human
papillomavirus vaccine, or
HPV, is recommended for
girls and young women,
ages 9-26. This important
new vaccine works to help
prevent serious diseases
that may lead to certain
types of cervical cancer.
Pertussis, better known
as whooping cough, was
thought by many to be a
disease of the past. The
number of reported cases
among teens and adults
doubled in the 1990s, as
protection from childhood
immunizations faded.


%4ef b .gr


The purpose of the
vaccine is not only to slow
down the increase in new
cases of the serious
disease, but to decrease
transmission of the illness
to infants, who are
extremely vulnerable to
complications and death
from whooping cough.
A recent outbreak of
mumps in the Midwest
reminds us that these
diseases of the past are not
really gone and we have to
remain vigilant to keep
them away from our kids.
Back-to-school season
means making sure that
your child's immunization
record is accurate and up-
to-date.
Before a child in Florida
can enter a public or
private K-12 school, a pre-
school childcare facility or
family day care home, he
or she must have a "Blue
Card," form DH 680, a
Florida certificate of
immunization. This is
required under Florida
law, to protect them and
other children from a
variety of diseases.
Newcomers to Florida
can take their children's


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well

records to a physician or
the county health depart-
ment and have the records
transferred to the "Blue
Card."
For a list of immuniza-
tions required by Florida,
visit
www.doh.state.fl. us/dis-
ease_ctrl/immune/school.
These requirements
meet the recommenda-
tions of a variety of
sources, including the U.S.
Public Health Service, the
American Academy of
Pediatric and the Ameri-
can Medical Association.
Dr. Alexander reminds
parents of the importance


of keeping immunizations
up-to-date.
"It is only through the
maintenance of high
coverage rates among
infants and young adults
that we can continue to
prevent large disease
outbreaks.
"In the last 50 years,
immunizations have
reduced vaccine-preventa-
ble disease rates 99
percent," he said.
For those in the process
of completing immuniza-
tions when school starts, a
temporary medical
exemption can be granted.
It has an expiration date
and the immunizations
must be completed by that
time.
For those who cannot
afford vaccinations, the
Vaccines for Children
program covers Medicaid-
eligible, uninsured,
Alaskan and Native
American children and
some underinsured
children whose coverage
does not provide for
immunizations up to age
.18.

The vaccines are provid-
ed by the government and

given by your doctor at no
charge.
If you do not have
Medicaid, you may have to
pay an administration fee
for each injection and/or
an office visit charge. The
administration fee may
not exceed $16, but the
doctor's visit is a matter

emotional connection
based on love.
Marriages based on
physical or mental attrac-
tion seldom grow and
prosper.
Why? Because they lack a
spiritual foundation and
blessing. Sometimes it is
called a marriage of
convenience. This is where
each partner has some-
thing that the other needs
and an exchange is made.
This is usually based on
polar opposites, whereby
two personalities try to
reconcile differences.
It's like trying to play
blackjack and poker at the
same time.
Over many years of
doing readings and
counseling friends from all
walks of life, three strong
factors have emerged that
insure a strong, happy and
long lived relationship.
Here is what they are.

Compatibility

You can't be playing
blackjack and poker. There
must be parallel thinking
instead of opposite
thinking.
A weak marriage is not
built on two strong wills
struggling to control.
A strong one is where the
r------------------------1








^ELECTRIC :
ANY DAY Now
P p peanut





Butter should be

back on the Shelves.
I was told by th 20





ELECT, C00'
I ---------------


strong wills surrender to
the higher will and the two
hearts and souls ask for
divine power to bless it
and make it fruitful.
This creates a team. A
team has to have a goal to
shoot for. When you reach
the goal, you celebrate the
victory. Then set a larger
goal and keep moving
forward in a parallel
direction. Without the goal
and teamwork, the ego,
fear, anger, hunger and
sadness inevitably get in
the way.
He expects you to do
things his way and you
don't. You expect him to do
things your way and he
doesn't. This creates war
and causes broken hearts
and broken marriages.
Lack of compatibility,
goals and teamwork are,
the major reasons for
divorce and family hard-
ship.

Create peace

The second factor to a
, good marriage is to create
peace among the elders in
the family. Stop the war.
If his people don't like
you or your people don't
like him, you will live in
fear and always be unhap-
py wondering when
someone will go ballistic
again.
Anger is usually caused
by hunger or lack within
the individual causing the
uproar. This person is
hungry for love and
doesn't want to see anyone
else happy.
Communication and
understanding are impos-
sible if you can't talk and
find solid ground to build
on.
It's the man's job to ask
his family to make peace
with you, It's the woman's
job to ask her family to live
in peace with him.
Whatever we don't like in
someone else are usually
things that we don't like
about ourselves.
The survival of your
marriage or relationship
depends on living in peace
not war.

JAMES TUCKER
The Spirit Guide

Have mutual friends

Mutual friends pick you
up when you are down.
You pick them up when
they are down. Mutual
friends keep secrets from
overtaking love.
When is the last time you
had all your friends over
for a barbecue? Close
friends are the roots that
make love grow.
Isn't this the way you
truly want to live? It all
comes down to the choices
we make. The easiest way
to find happiness is hang
out with happy friends.
You can do it.
How compatible are you
and your mate? Are your
families at peace? Do you
have mutual friends?
If the answer to any of
these is "no" you have
some work to do. We are
not supposed to suffer.
My greatest wish is that
you use this "magic
formula" to create a
strong, happy, fruitful and
long-lived marriage or
relationship.
You can do it. When it
happens, teach others who
see and feel your glow and
want it in their life. Pass
the torch. We change the
world for the better one
person at a time, starting
with ourselves.
The sweetest news is the
best is yet to come.

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".


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


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


at

ca
h


Now, here is the good news. After eliminat-
irng the dealer fee my profit per car did drop
by about the amount of the dealer fee, but
tmy customers realized I was now giving them
a fair shake and quoting a complete out-the-
door price with no "surprises". And the word
spread My volume of car sales began to rise
rapidly. Sure, I was making a few hundred
dollars less per car, but I was selling a lot
'more cars. I was and am selling cars to many
of your former customers. My bottom line
has improved, not because I eliminated the
7 -,. dealer fee, but because I was
troi.ers' able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
Oie lVel or used car. You can do the
same.
ion and Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
Itton are I think of myself as the new
"sheriff' that has come to
er today." "clean up South Florida". In
fact, I am well aware that this
letter is, to some extent, self-
serving. Many people will read this letter and
learn why they should buy a car from me,
and not you. And, I am also aware that most
dealers who read this will either get angry and
ignore it or not have the courage to follow my
lead. But maybe.you will be the exception. If
you have any interest in following my lead,
call me anytime. I don't have a secretary and
I don't screen any of my phone calls. I would
love to chat with you about this.
Sincerely,
Earl Stewart- Earl Stewart Toyota

Ascending the stairway to Heaven


God blessed Isaac
and Rebekah with
twin sons, but they
looked nothing alike.
Esau, who was born
first, was covered with
hair. Jacob was smooth-
skinned.
Isaac and Rebekah
loved their newborn
twins equally, but in time,
Isaac became fond of
Esau, and Rebekah
favored Jacob.
Because of personality
differences, Es9u and
Jacob argued, especially
over Esau's birthright.
Esau was only minutes
older than Jacob, but as
the first-born, he would
be heir to all of Isaac's
riches, and become head
of the family upon their
father's death.
One day Jacob saw an
opportunity to seize the
precious birthright for
himself. When Esau came
home from a hunting trip,
tired and hungry, Jacob
was cooking lentil soup.
"Give me some of that
stew, I'm famished," Esau
demanded.
Jacob said, "I'll give you
some stew for your right
as first-born."
Esau replied, "What
good is my birthright if I
dieof starvation?"
Jacob shouted loudly,
"Swear you mean it!"
holding the steaming
bowl just out of Esau's
reach.
The ravenous Esau
swore an oath, selling his
birthright to Jacob..
Therefore, Esau shrugged
off his rights as the first-
born.
When we next see the
twin's father, Isaac, he is
old and has lost his


eyesight, but, like Esau,
he has a healthy appetite.
He has a hankering for
wild game. Isaac said to
Esau, "Go hunting and
prepare me some tasty
food and bring it to me,
and I will give you my
blessing before I die."
For some reason, Esau
did not pipe up and
explain that he had
traded away his
birthright. Surely it hadn't
slipped his mind, selec-
tive memory perhaps.
, Esau grabbed his bow
and arrows and set out
for the open country.
Rebekah, however, had
overheard Isaac and
Esau's conversation and
went to Jacob with a plan.
Mother and son went
into action. They killed a
couple of young goats to
prepare the meal Isaac
had requested. Rebekah
selected some of Esau's
clothing for Jacob to
wear, so he would have
the scent of his brother
Esau in his father's
presence..
Rebekah used the
leftover goatskin as
coverings, to prepare a
hairy neck, hands, and
forearms for her
smoothed-skinned
younger son. Then his
mother put the tasty meal
into Jacob's hands.
Isaac was blind but
alert. The dialog in Isaac's
tent was interesting to
say the least. Jacob went
to Isaac and said, "My
father,"
Isaac replied, "Yes,
which son are you?"
Jacob said, "I'm your first
born son Esau, sit up and
eat of my wild game, so
that you may give me
your blessing."

Jacob's father contin-
ued to question him,
until he, for the most part
was convinced that Jacob
was indeed Esau.
Jacob served his father
the food and also some
wine. Isaac asked Jacob to
come near and kiss him.
When Isaac caught the
scent of the Jacob's
clothing, belonging to
Esau, he blessed him.
Soon, Esau returned
from hunting. Imagine
Esau's shock when his
father exclaimed with
emotion, "Who are you?"
When Esau discovered
what had happened he
wept bitterly and begged
for his father's blessing.
But the blessing he had
given to Jacob could not
be reversed.
In a rage Esau decided
to kill Jacob, but his
mother Rebekah learned
of his plans. She removed
Jacob from harm's way by

sending him to distant
Mesopotamia.
Rebekah's plan worked,
but with a great price, for
that was the last time she
saw her beloved son,
Jacob.
Jacob departed with his
father's blessing. Along
the way, he stopped for
the night. He used a stone
for a pillow.
As he slept, he had a
vivid dream in which he
saw a stairway extending
from earth to heaven.
Angels were traveling up
and down fhe stairway.
The voice of God came
from above, saying, "I am
the God of Abraham, and.
the God of Isaac."
God promised Jacob
the same things he had,
promised Abraham and
Isaac, and promised to
watch over him.
When Jacob awoke
from his sleep, he real-
ized the full impact of his


supernatural encounter.
He took the stone that
he had rested his head
upon, sat it up as a
monument to God, and
anointed it with oil. He
called the place Bethel,
meaning house of God.
In Jacob's dream, the
ladder to heaven was
symbolic of Christ. He is
your ladder between
heaven and earth.
How do you ascend on
your ladder, your stair-
way to heaven? By faith.
As you hold on to your
ladder firmly, with each
heavenly step, He holds
you for eternity.

BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
It's 9:15 on any given
morning and boxer
Lenroy "The Lion"
Thompson is getting
ready for a dip at the'
pool.
But Thompson isn't
there to cool off from the
Florida heat, he's there to
train.
This June, Thompson, a
super-hea vyrweight,
reached the semififials at
U.S. National Champi-
onships in Colorado
Springs, Colo., but lost to
Michael Hunter.
The schedule had given
Hunter a bye before the
match, and Thompson
entered the ring exhaust-
ed from his 'previous
three bouts. But the Port
St. Lucie resident man-
aged to have the lead
after two rounds, before a
series of. penalties
docked him four points.
Hunter won the fight, 17-
12, and eventually also
won the U.S. National
title.
The two will most likely
square off again this week
at the U.S. Olympic Trials
in Houston, 'Texas, and
this time Thompson,
plans on being prepared.
That's why he reluc-
tantly started the new.
underwater training regi-.
ment instituted by his
coach Ralph Murgulo
after Colorado.
After running three


miles each morning,
Thompson heads to Mur-
golo's house in Spanish
Lakes where he runs,
punches, and exercises
underwater for up to 90
minutes.
The idea came to Mur-
golo after reading about
the training habits of
RIocky Marciano.
"I think that put him in
tip-top shape," Murgulo
said. "He's ready now."
Hesitant at first,
Thompson says the new
training tool might be his
ticket to Beijing for the
2008 Summer Olympics.
"It's real 'hard on your
body but it makes you a
lot faster," Thompson
said. "I don't like pools,
but anything to help me
win. Even as a kid I never
liked going in the pool
but it's helped me so
much that I've opened up
to it."
Six days a week Thomp-
son starts his day with a
three-mile run, followed
by a session in the pool.
But that's just the first
part of his day.
From the pool, Thomp-
son heads home for
lunch and a nap. At 4:30
p.m. he reports to the
Fort Pierce Police Athletic
League facility on Second
Street, just north of
downtown Fort Pierce. In
this converted factory
and warehouse, Thomp-
son practices his boxing
technique by sparing,
shadow boxing and hit-

ting the bag. He also lifts
weights. .
. After he is finally done,
around 6:30 p.m.,
Thompson switches from
being the trainee to being
the' trainer, helping Mur-
gulo with younger boxers
who have come to admire
the Olympic hopeful.
"I'm all excited over it
because I'm pretty sure
he's going all the way,"
Murgulo said. "He's
smart, he's in good shape,
and he can just out-think
these other guys."
. Thompson blends into
the surroundings at the
Second Street gym, jok-


ing around with other
boxers, says his. best
friend and sparing part-
ner Matt Mays. The two
have been training
together for two years -
almost the entire time
Thompson has been box-
ing.
Knowing someone in
such a high profile spot is
fun, says Mays, but he

sometimes has to watch how hard the
two go at it in the ring. The last thing he
wants to do is ruin Thompson's chances
of going to the Olympics.
"I've learned so much off him. I've
actually adapted to his style," .said
Mays.
That style is one of the reasons
Thompson reached the trials. Uncon-
ventional for a super-heavyweight,
Thompson uses his quickness, not his
power, when attacking his opponent.
The hit-quick-and-back-out style has
been called everything from running
away to ping-pong, but Thompson
prefers his own.name.
"Pop and go, that's it," Thompson
said. "We're not going to change any-
thing 'if it's still working. And now that
I'm faster it's going to work even bet-
ter."
But Thompson has never been a con-
ventional super heavyweight anyway.
Weighing in at 203 pounds, the 18-year-
old is just two pounds over the mini-
mum limit. Instead of trying to slim

down before a fight, Thompson is trying
to make weight. That task has been
harder thdn expected this summer in
the sweltering heat. He eats-whenever
he can and loads up on carbohydrate-
heavy foods like pasta.
When he heads off to Houston this
weekend, Murgulo and Fort Pierce PAL
director Paul Pearson, not his family,
will accompany him. The distraction

would be too much.
Even as he trained for the tourna-
ment, one could tell his focus was only
on one thing Beijing.
Thompson knows that there is a pos-
sibility he will return without a spot on
the U.S. Olympic team, but to him that
is not an option. He wants to eventually
turn pro,' but first he wants to be an
Olympian.
"It would be real good for my pro
career and to represent my country, not
a whole lot of people can say that," said
Thompson. "I'm grateful for where I am
right now but I want to go further."

One man's garbage pit is another man's great golf course


There is a saying that
"time heals all
wounds."
In the case of nature,
there are few wounds that
scar as badly as a landfill.
We've all seen the huge
mountains of trash or
borrow pits filled with old
sofas, stoves and cement
blocks. It's an ugly sight.
In the late 1980s, when
St. Lucie County decided
to build a municipal golf
course, it took a route a
few others have taken.
Since no one wanted to
build a subdivision on a
spot filled with Twinkies
that wouldn't deteriorate
for 100 years, why not
take the old landfill, cap
it with several tons of
dirt, dig a few ponds and
see what happens?
For St. Lucie County, the
result was golf gold.
When I first played the
Jim Fazio-designed
Fairwinds Golf Course,
shortly after its grand
opening in 1991, it looked
like a truly new place. It
more closely resembled a
links course than what
most Floridians are used
to playing.
There was very little
existing vegetation. The
edges of the course had a
few trees, and you could
actually find bottle caps
and some broken glass
here and there.
The county planted

FORT PIERCE Market-
ing, Business Technical
Writing and Nursery Man-
agement are a few of the
topics for courses to be
offered at the University of
Florida for the fall 2007
semester. The courses will
be offered at the UF Indian
River Research.and Educa-
tion Center, in Fort Pierce.
Forty-six undergraduate
and graduate courses will
be instructed by UF pro-
fessors and a lecturer on
campus at the Fort Pierce
location, as well as offer-


trees and native vegeta-
tion throughout the
nearly 200-acre track.
During tle past 16 years,
the plants have thrived
and Fairwinds has quick-
ly matured into a great
golf course.
One benefit from
building on a landfill,
besides the savings from
not having to buy 150-
plus acres, is that no
homes will ever crowd
the fairways and greens.
Fairwinds is pure golf.
The lone distraction
may come from the
occasional plane landing
or taking off from the .
adjacent St. Lucie County
International Airport.
Also, the county has
room for expansion. To
the north and west of the
course, the county owns
another 600-plus acres.
The land will someday be
used to expand the
airport, but discussion of
building another 18 holes
is a constant on the
Board of County Com"-
missioners' plate.
I recently played Fair-
winds for the first time in
many moons. I promise
not to wait that long to
return. I was shocked and
pleased to see how well
the golf has grown and
rebounded. Celebrating

JAMES STAMMER
Golf columnist

The hurricanes of a few
years past knocked down
hundreds of trees at
Fairwinds. They have
since been replanted or
replaced, keeping the
mature look intact.
Where I once could cut
corners, trees have
grown. Fairways and
holes that once appeared
to run together are now
perfectly framed and
defined. The overgrown
areas along the perimeter
have been cleaned up.
What I truly liked the
best was all of the flower-
ing trees'on the course.
Most Florida courses
have two colors, green
and brown. Not so at
Fairwinds. There are
numerous flowering trees
and shrubs to give the
place a full palette of
color.
The 18th hole has

always given me fits, and
I must report that over
time, it has not become
any easier. I honestly
think the hole recognized
me and made a point of
making up for the time
that I had been away.
The course features a
nice menu of holes.
You have long and short
par-3s, a drivable par-4, a
couple of tough par-5s
and one that nearly every
golfer can reach with two
good shots. Located
between the airport and
the river, the wind is
always a factor at Fair-
winds.
A few years back, the
county redid all 18 greens
with the latest tiff-dwarf
Bermuda grass. This new
strain is more resistant to
heat, helps provide a
better roll on putts and
can be cut to PGA Tour
quickness if desired.
Asphalt cart paths were
replaced with concrete
and the bunkers were
reworked and toughened.
I'd recommend avoiding
the bunkers.
