County to bill rural developer for staff time


BY SAMANTHA JOSEPH
Staff writer
The builders involved in
St. Lucie County's proposed
Rural Land Stewardship
program learned the price
tag could be significantly
higher than they expected.
When the Florida Con-
servancy & Development
Group tallies up the cost of
the planned 22,000-acre
project., it will likely have to
factor in hundreds of hours
billed for county staff time.
"We were all surprised at
the issue of staff time
raised," said Caroline Vil-
lanueva, long-range plan-


Officials:

Prepare

BY WENDY DWYER
For Hometown News
,ST. LUCIE COUNTY-
Amid reports of Hurri-
cane Dean, county
administrator Doug
Anderson advises resi-
dents to prepare for the
worst and hope for the
best during this year's
hurricane season.
"Regardless of whether
or not ;a storm is on the
horizon, residents should
always have an extra
three-day supply of food
on hand," said Mr.
Anderson, who says the
county, is prepared for
the most active part of
hurricane season.
He said he feels that
the state in general is the
most prepared of all 50
states to handle natural
disasters and that offi-
cials are the best-trained
and have the most effec-
tive network in the coun-
try.
Even before the hurri-
canes of 2004 ripped
through the area, leaving
a swath of destruction,
Mr. Anderson said the
National Guard, local
and federal government
officials were in contact
with one another..
'As Hurricane Frances
was finally leaving the
area in 2004, the first
convoy of aid from the
National Guard was
already en route to St.
Lucie County to stage
and begin the hard work
that comes after the
storm."

The company is a joint
venture of Miami-based
Lennar Corporation and
Centex Homes, headquar-
tered in Dallas.
It has been working with
Adams Ranch, a cattle farm
west of Fort Pierce in unin-
corporated St. Lucie County.
The goal is to transfer to
the group some of the
development rights or rural
stewardship that now
belong to Adams Ranch.
The end result would be a

But county commission-
ers introduced a new factor
into the mix. On Aug. 14,
they instructed administra-
tors to have the developers
pick up the tab for the pub-
lic employees' time on the
project.
Since April 2007, county
reviewers have been con-
sidering the "sending"

development rights, says

New schools, repairs completed in time for

opening day for St. Lucie County children


BY WENDY DWYER
For Hometown News


While your kids have
been enjoying the sum-
mer sunshine and long
lazy days, area schools
have been busy doing
their homework.
And while kids were
.spending their final days
of summer vacation cram-
ming in their summer
reading lists and figuring
out what to wear on the
first day, St. Lucie County
schools officials were busy
catching up on their own
summer reading, lists,
which include blueprints,
specifications and punch-


lists.
School District Spokes-
woman Janice Karst said,
"The list of projects that
will be completed by the
time the first bell rang on
Aug. 20 or shortly there-
after, is extensive."
Included in the list are
two new schools, Samuel
S. Gaines Academy on
Jenkins Road in Fort
Pierce, and a fourth class-
room building for the new
Treasure Coast High
School in Port St. Lucie.
The Allapattah Flats tran-
sition campus is ready
and crews have been
working hard to complete
building on a two-story


middle-school classroom
structure at Manatee
Academy K-8.
In order to accommo-
date the tremendous
growth of the District pop-
ulation, additional hybrid
classrooms have been
installed at White City,
Windmill Point, Lawn-
wood, Lakewood Park and
Floresta Elementary
schools.
The work also includes
some extensive remedial
projects. These projects
have included conver-
sions of media centers,
upgrading of bathrooms
and upgrades and work on
science labs at six area


schools. Audio Visual
Enhancement systems
have. been installed in
their classrooms at many
area schools.
Southport and Forest
Grove middle schools and
Port St. Lucie High School
will have new roofs.
It will be a smooth ride,
and a dryer one on rainy
days, at 10 area schools
where paving has been
completed at parent/bus
drop off, areas where cov-
ered walkways have been
installed.
And they'll be chilling

St. Lucie County will
create a memorial plate
for Iva Jean Maddox, the
former Historical Muse-
um superintendent who
died Aug. 13.
Ms. Maddox, 57, died of
complications of
Alzheimer's disease. She
was born in Portsmouth,
Va., the daughter of U.S.
Navy Captain Iven Mad-
dox and Willie Jean Bevis
Maddox.
She headed the muse-
um from 1999 until her
retirement in January
2005, said former super-
visor Patti Raffensberger,
St. Lucie County recre-
ation manager.
"Iva Jean was the first
true professional 'muse-
um person' connected to
the Historical Museum,"
said Jon Ward, director,
Fort Pierce Community
Redevelopment Agency.
Ms. Maddox reported to,
him when Mr. Ward was
the county's director of
cultural affairs.
The museum plans to
open a boating and fish-
ing exhibition next win-
ter, and when it does, it
will pay special tribute to
Ms. Maddox, said Jody


Bonet, St. Lucie County
cultural affairs director.
"She was a sweet lady,"
said Ms. Boriet. "We have
a memorial garden area
in the museum, and will
add a spot for her."
The pair worked closely
on securing grants from
the state for the new
boating and fishing
exhibits.
But Ms. Maddox is most
widely credited with
spearheading the ongo-
ing process to get the
American Association of
Museums to accredit the
local institution.
"We started the process
under Iva Jean," said Mr.
Ward. "Even .though the
museum had existed for
several decades prior to
(her employment), no
one had thought of
accreditation."
Ms. Maddox was also
instrumental in creating
education programs and
special events at the
museum.
"Those things are easier
said than done, because
they're basically massive
undertakings," said Ms.
Raffensberger.
"We were fundamental-
ly redefining how the
museum presents its arti-
facts and trying to show


more of the collection
that was in storage," Mr.
Ward added.
Ms. Maddox's other
accomplishments
include her stint as the
first president of the
Treasure Coast Genealog-
ical Society and the first
woman to join the Rotary
Club in York, S.C.,
according to information
from her family. She was
also president of the local
American Association of
University Women and
treasurer of business and
professional women.
In the early 1980s, she
was the Historical Muse-
um's first paid director.
She later became curator
of collections at Historic
Columbia and archivist
of the York Center of York,
County, S.C, according to
her obituary.
In the Carolinas, she
taught English to foreign,
military wives and read-
ing to mill workers, her
obituary states.
Ms. Maddox attended
Dan McCarty High
School, Pensacola Junior
College, and St. Mary's
College. She received her
master's degree from the
University of South Car-
olina.

IM RAS OF SSAI
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.

Roy said.
The expansion comes
on the heels of an
announcement that the
Early Learning Coalition
of St. Lucie County would
cut daycare subsidies for
about 650 children.
The .coalition has a
waitlist of more than
1,000 children, and has
not had an increase in its
state and federal funding
in seven years, said execu-
tive director Nancy
Archer.
"We had to make a very
tough decision and
decide to serve just the
younger children," she
said.
A public and private sec-
tor effort that includes the


Boys and Girls Clubs will
help fill the need created.
Through the School-Age
After School Task Force
Committee, private and
nonprofit organizations
have partnered with' the
county to provide
reduced rate clay care,
said Janice Karst, St. Lucie
County Public Schools
director of communica-
tions.
"This initiative is to
respond to the needs of
hundreds of our commu-
nity's children who need a
safe, secure, supportive
place to be after school,"
said schools superintend-
ent Michael Lannon.
The Boys and Girls
Clubs is working through


a list of the students who
lost subsidies, Ms. Roy
said. The hope is that the
agency will be able to
accommodate some of
them by providing com-
plimentary enrollment,
she added.
"There's no question
that it's'a very good thing
any time there's an oppor-
tunity for a child to be in a
nurturing, safe environ-
ment," said Ms. Karst.
Weekly tuition at the
Boys and Girls Clubs
ranges from $28-$50 per
week.'
"We just have to work
through it," Ms. Roy said.
"It's just very important
for these kids to have
someplace to go."

say.
"The museum literally
was her life. She wasn't

Local soldier killedinhelicopter crash


BY SAMANTHA JOSEPH
Staff writer
Naval air crewman
Brendon Sandburg was
supposed to be the best
man at his friend's wed-
ding next month.
The 25-year-old soldier,
who, was born in Stuart,
had survived two tours of
duty in war-torn Iraq and
Kuwait, and settled in Ari-
zona with his wife, John-
na, 22, and his 18-month-
old daughter, Aubrie.
"He did these deploy-
ments and he came
home," said Eugene
'Gene' Sandburg, his
father, who owns a busi-
ness in Port St. Lucie. "We
felt safe."
But instead of celebrat-
ing his friend's wedding,
Brendon Sandburg's
loved ones plan to gather
Sept. 29 for a memorial
service in his honor..
The Navy corpsman


was killed in a helicopter
crash in Arizona Aug. 16.
He was participating in
routine exercises about 20
miles north of Yuma.
Mr. Sandburg was one of
four military servicemen
killed, according to infor-
mation from the Marine
Corp. One marine was
injured.
Marine Corps Air Station
Yuma is conducting an
investigation and cannot
release details of the crash
until its completion, said
spokesman Lance Corpo-
ral Daniel Angel.
"He had a training mis-
sion last week. The heli-
copter crashed and four
wonderful boys died,"
Gene said.
Family friend Iris Hardy
first heard the news Aug.
17 from Gene and his wife,
Kathleen. The pair 'was on
the way to the airport,
headed for Arizona, when
they told her.


"Gene called me because
he heard that the chopper
was missing," she said.
Ms. Hardy has ,worked
for the Sandburg family's
Port St. Lucie business,
That Water Place, for more.
than 20 years, and has
known Mr. Sandburg since
he was a child.
Before he was a Navy
petty officer, second class,
Mr. Sandburg was a stu-
dent at John Carroll High
School, she said.
He played varsity soccer
and track and participated
in the Spanish, science and
Key clubs at the Fort Pierce
Catholic school,
"Brendon was a beloved
member of the class of
2000," said Jennifer Trefel-
ner, the school's develop-
ment director. She gradu-
ated one year before he
did.
Marine biology teacher
Beau Roberts saw signs of
the future Navy man in his


Naval air crewman
Brendon Sandburg
student.
"It was evident on a daily
basis that he truly enjoyed
marine life, from boating
to fishing;" he said.
Mr. Sandburg joined the
Navy immediately after
graduation, his father said.
He was stationed with the
Marines and assigned to
search-and-rescue mis-
sions.

PSL man soils restaurant bathroom
Louis Piselli of Port St. Lucie was arrested for riding
his bicycle under the influence of alcohol Aug. 12 after
leaving Duffy's Bar and Grill on the 700 block of St.
Lucie West Boulevard in Port St. Lucie.
Pielli, 41, was accused of urinating all over the bath-
room at the restaurant and throwing a penny at a bar-
tender after calling her an obscene name, according
to police reports.
A manager at Duffy's said that Pisilli was intoxicated
when he arrived at the restaurant and falling out of his
seat. When the bartender refused to serve him, Pisilli
got angry.
When officers responded to the complaint at the
restaurant, the manager told them Pisilli was in the
Albertsons in the same shopping center.
Police found Pisilli at the grocery store and instruct-
ed him not to drive his bicycle home because he was
too intoxicated. After the officers watched Pisilli walk
his bike away, they left the parking lot.
Within five minutes police saw Pisilli riding his bike
down the sidewalk before losing control and crashing,

the police report said.
At that point, police arrested Pisilli for driving under
the influence.

patients in need, complete
with an emergency rescue
vehicle on site to transport
patients to receive hospital
care as soon as it is safe to
do so.
In order to qualify for

dents must first call and
pre-register. To do so, resi-
dents may call (772) 461-

weekdays, or call and leave
a message after hours and
on weekends.
The County has also cre-
ated an entire department,
using existing staff to start
the extensive paperwork
and insurance processes
moving as soon as the
storm is over and assess-
ments have begun.
"We incurred over $121
million in unbudgeted
expenses between Frances,
Jeanne andWilma," said Mr.
Anderson. "The county
experienced the same prob-
lems and frustrations faced
by homeowners and tax-
payers getting assistance
after the storms through the
Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency and pri-
vate insurers."
Still, Mr. Anderson, who
was recently appointed to
the advisory board for the
National Emergency Man-
agement Network, says that
it's important for residents
to prepare themselves in
case of a storm.
In the short term,. Mr.
Anderson said, residents

should have at least a three
day supply of food and
water on hand prior to the
storm. Residents also need
to make sure they have
enough fuel for vehicles,
including generators.
"And fill your prescrip-
tions and stock up on nec-
essary medicines and med-
ical supplies before the
storm," he said.
Finally, Mr. Anderson said
that residents who want to
be prepared should remove
all debris and items that
could become flying vessels
from their property prior to
the storm.
As far as long-term prepa-
rations, Mr. Anderson said
it's important for residents
to install storm shutters and
strongly consider the pur-
chase of a generator.
Hurricane guides and
tracking maps are available
at no charge at many loca-
tions throughout the coun-
ty, and they can be down-
loaded at
www. hometownnewsol.lco
m by clicking on the Hurri-
cane Guide link on the left
side of the Web page.
When asked if he thought
residents become compla-
cent when the season is rel-
atively quiet as this one has
been so far, Mr. Anderson is
thoughtful and compli-
mentary of Treasure Coast
residents. "I think people
have been a lot less compla-
cent since 2004 than they
may have been in the past.
It had been many years
since we'd had a major
.storm and the 2004 season
helped remind us that we
are still very vulnerable and
cannot become compla-
cent. Those who lived
through the storm, and we
were very fortunate that this
area did not experience any
loss of life during the
storms, are much more
aware and are hurricane
ready."
"The 2004 season
brought out the best in
every one of us," said .Mr.
Anderson. "The community
pulled together and I met so
many wonderful people
and learned so much about
life and the goodness of
people during and after the
storms. I pray we never
have to go through a season
like 2004 again," Mr. Ander-
son said.

BY WENDY DWYER
For Hometown News
They are trained pro-
fessionals and law
enforcement officials
who have become more
than simply a fixture in
schools.
They nurture and cre-
ate lasting relationships
with students and help
provide guidance and
education to give chil-
dren the tools to make
the right decisions while
navigating the troubled
waters of growing up.
And it is possible that
budget cuts and higher
taxes might mean the
end of School Resource
Officers (SROs) in St.
Lucie County Schools.
That's the question
being asked by law
enforcement officials,
Port St. Lucie City Coun-
cil members, school
administrators and con-
cerned parents and,
even though the school
bells have rung, an
answer has yet to be
clearly defined.
SROs, have an office on
campus and provide on-
campus security as well
as after school for activi-
ties, and on weekends
for sporting events. They
provide educational
classes to the students,
sometimes anger man-
agement, sometimes
Drug Awareness Resis-
tance Education
(DARE), and Gang Resis-
tance Educational Train-
ing (GREAT) programs.
Last year, SROs imple-
mented a new task -
when a student was
identified as having
gang signs, possessing
gang paraphernalia or
writing, on notebooks,
SROs would go to the
student's home that
evening and educate the
parents; .
, "Many :;times- my-,
phone rang with parents,
calling to let me know


that they had no idea
their kids were now
becoming involved with
gangs," said St. Lucie
County Sheriff Ken Mas-
cara.
"The SRO program is a
valuable tool and our
officers are dedicated,
caring professionals
who really create rela-
tionships of trust with
students, parents and
staff at St. Lucie County
Schools."
The issue involves the
positioning of SROs in
St. Lucie County
Schools.
According to Sheriff
Mascara, the SRO pro-
grafin has historically
been partnered with the
St. Lucie County Sher-
iff's Department and the
Port St. Lucie Police
Department.
"To the best of my
knowledge the Fort
Pierce Police Depart-
ment never had SROs as
part of the program,"
said Mascara.
"The funding mecha-
nism for. the SRO pro-
gram was approximately:
45 percent funded byi
School Board," said
Sheriff Mascara, "with
the remaining 55 per-
cent funded by the cor-
responding law enforce-
ment agencies." i
According to. Mascara,
approximately three
months ago, with tax
reform on the horizon
and budget uncertainty
looming large, discus-
sions between Port St.
Lucie Police Chief John
Skinner, St. Lucie Coun-
ty School Superinten-
dent Michael Lannon
and Sheriff Mascara took
place, about the funding
mechanism for the SRO
program and budget
cuts.
At the time. Mascara
said Suierintendent

Why not adopt?

I want to say thank you to Wendy for her Aug. 10 col-
umn entitled "Many dogs and cats in St. Lucie County
need help."
I would ask, though, that people be aware that this is
not due to a current influx, as there is a constant flow of
unwanted, discarded dogs and cats that pass through
animal shelters here, and across the country daily.
Three pets die every two minutes in Florida shelters.
This is not an unusual influx problem, but an outrage.
While the column helps educate, I think an ad under
pets for sale would be a more consistent and constant
reminder of the option to adopt and rescue an animal.
"For $37.50, save a pet's life" would be great ad, or can't
breeder's deal with the competition.

Dog and cats need homes

This is in response to the column stating that many
dogs and cats in St. Lucie County need homes.
The Humane Society currently has cut the adoption
fees in half.
I notice that under the paper's pets for sale ads that
adoption and rescue agencies are not listed.
I think it would be a great idea if you would place an ad
for the Human Society saying that the adoption is now
$37.50.
I don't know why the Hometown News doesn't list all of
the local agencies, and promote adoption.

Differences in construction time

I have a question for the mayor, and her council.
I have the pleasure of driving down Becker Road three
times a week. I go by the now beautiful new Tesoro new
road with a new Publix supermarket coming up.
I wonder how fast this is going in, it only took matter of
months.
But, when I drive down Westmorland Boulevard twice
a week I see that little rinky-dink construction, which
has taken over two months already, and they haven't
even done one third of it.
I am starting starting to smell that money walks, and
bullcrap talks.

Road rage

The road rage s getting out of control at Prima Vista
Boulevard from Rio Mar on up.
When people are trying to get in line at the traffic light,
there have to be at least 20 or 30 cars that are passing on
the right, and trying to cut in.
People are not moving.
They need to put a police car down at that light.
There is one up front, at U.S. 1, but that doesn't do any
good.
With school opening next week I1 don't know what is
going to happen. It's going to be bad.
They need to open up Rio Mar, or something.
This construction is not going to be done until some-
time in the middle of October, if it gets done at all.

Thank you


Recently I have been critical of some city employees.
Here is something very positive.
Never get involved with, or try to stop someone who is
going fishing, especially after a hard day's work.
My car wouldn't start in East Port Plaza. Two gentle-
men came, with their sandwiches in hand, to go fishing
on the causeway.
- They saw me in distress, and said, "Can I help you, sir"?
I said, "No, you are going fishing."
They told. me that was no problem, and that they had
time.
A half hour later they got me up and running. It was
something .very simple.
I would have had to spend money on a tow truck, and
would have been without a car.
These gentlemen helped me.
They were both city employees. Both had just gotten
done with a hard day's work, and both were looking for-
ward to going fishing.
I salute you.
If ever in the past I said anything in this paper to offend
any city employees who knew they weren't the ones I was.
trying to single out, I apologize to them also.
Thank you very much to these two fine gentlemen.
I am sure there are more fine people that work for the
city of Port St. Lucie.
Like one of the young men said, it only takes a minute
to be kind, and to help someone out. The fish will always
be there.

Good news versus bad news

Thursday I received two newspapers at my home, the
Hometown News and the Port St. Lucie News.
Each paper had a different headline.
The Hometown News headline was, "Local man named
Florida Paramedic of the Year."
The Port St. Lucie News headline was, "Pool tragedies
leave 1 child dead, 1 injured."
Which paper do you think I picked up first, and read
cover to cover?
Hint: It wasn't the one with the bad news headline.
Port St. Lucie News, get a, clue. There's enough bad
news in the world without seeing it first thing on the
front page of my local newspaper.


Police officer needed


I'd like to make a comment about the construction that
is going on at Prima Vista Blvd.
They need to have a police officer on the west side of
the bridge stop some of the traffic that speeds by and
cuts people off.
I have seen that happen twice.
A truck that was raised up, and had the big, high wheels
pushed a woman right into the curb because she would-
n't get out of the way, when she was already in line.
I think if a police officer was on the west side of the
bride the traffic would get in line a lot smoother, and
there would be no problems.
Don't ask me what they are going to do when schools
open. It's going to be terrible.

Some things are funny, some are not

When a person gets up in the morning and reads the
local newspapers, most of the time it is all sad news.
Occasionally a person can get a chuckle out of some of
the articles.
One of these was the one stating that Port St. Lucie is
going to have a botanical garden. That's a real laugh.
The city will need a guru to oversee that.
Let's just pay him $80,000 a year. He would be well
worth it.
Another thing, you cannot have a garage sale any-
more, unless you buy a sign, and get a permit from the
city because you can't put the sign's in city swales.
But, you are allowed to park your boats and cars there
indefinitely, and nobody bothers with that.
So, why not just write garage sale on the back of your
broken down car or boat, and leave it in the swale?
People will get the idea.'
A paint ball park? This is a wonderful idea. It will def-
initely bring a lawsuit or two against.the city.
We also need a guru to oversee the canals in Port St.
Lucie because they are in need of repair.
If anybody wants to be a guru, all you need is to have a
relative that works for the city and you will get in first.
There has been a lot of getting in first in Port St. Lucie.
Let us not forget, if you put a car in the swale, it is fine.
If you put a sign in the swale, it is against the law, and you

Letters


To all concerned Americans

I am absolutely concerned about the breakdown of our
immigration laws.
I sincerely believe the middle class people of America
have been severely hurt, and that the progress that they
have gained over the past decades has diminished due to
the lax enforcement of immigration.
We are a nation of laws in America that should be
enforced by all concerned with the responsibility of
assuring compliance thereto.
There are ways and means to legally enter these United
States of America, whether it be as a tourist, for a busi-
ness venture, or as a means of becoming a legal citizen of
the country.
To enter the country without proper authorization is
illegal, and I cannot say it more clearly, it is defined as a
violation of authorized law.
I am frustrated by those who try to keep reminding me
that we are a nation of immigrants who opened the
doors at one time to selected populations of the world.
I do not wish to go further on that subject.
That wastrue, because in the early nineteen hundreds,
the country needed the immigrants.
Immigration laws at that time allowed legal entry into
the United States, and helped make it the greatest demo-
cratic country in the world.


I know first hand from where I speak, because I am a
first generation son of Italian immigrants.
My parents were told to learn English, and to speak
English at home.
Today if I wish to seek information on the telephone, I
am told to press one for English, and press two for Span-
ish. '
I have lived and worked in Florida since June of 1966.
I read two newspapers a day, and one on Friday specif-
ically dedicated to local news.
I can remember when we had migrant problems, and
these poor, unfortunate souls were, for the most part I
believe, Americans at the poverty level who traveled
from farm to farm to pick the harvests.
They were treated unfairly, I believe, by fariners
regarding their pay, housing, and health.
I am in sympathy with farmers in our country, and
believe we can help them with a guest worker program
with labor from our country and other countries provid-
ed it is authorized by law.
The employers must assure the government that they,
and those who work the fields, are properly taken care of,
and not mistreated like the migrants of the past.
In regard to other industries, such as construction, I
sincerely believe that illegal immigrants have absolutely
ruined the future and careers of middle class American
construction workers because of their cheap labor and


the over abundant supply of illegal immigrants who
work for low wages.
There again, I speak from knowledge of this subject
because I have two sons who work in construction.
Back to the immigration issue.
The first priority should be to curtail illegal immigra-
tion and to secure our borders by building a fence at the
boarders. Maybe it could even be like the ones used at
prisons.
Second, enforce the current immigration laws.
Third, penalize those who break the laws.
Fourth, deport those who have entered our country
illegally.
And finally, use common sense on a case-by-case basis
when attempting to enforce the current immigration
laws.
There was a story in the newspaper about a U.S. citizen
who is a soldier in Iraq whose wife entered the U.S. ille-
.gally at the age of five. She became a legal resident, mar-
ried, and had a son.
The U.S. is in the process of deporting both the wife
and the son, who in my opinion, should remain in the
U.S.
Give me a break.

will get a ticket from code enforcement.
Also remember, the same police officers who give you
tickets for breaking the law are some of the same police
officers in Port St. Lucie who are breaking, or have bro-
ken, the law, but because they have been with the city for
so many years they just get a suspension.
Don't worry about them, because after the suspen-
sion, they get a promotion, and a raise.
Please, if anybody wishes to buy a home in Port St.
Lucie, buy mine.
Most of the old time employees in Port St. Lucie are
buying property in Georgia, the Carolinas, and Ten-
nessee.
They know what's happening here.

Spanish advertisements

Earl Stewart has a very interesting column for those of us
who like to be aware of scams in the car market.
He certainly knows his business, and I would certainly
consider his dealership if I wanted to buy a Toyota.
His latest piece in the paper provokes a response.
The title "Bigotry and car dealerships" has little to do with
other dealerships and not catering to those speaking Span-
ish.
There are few that can't accommodate these potential cus-
tomers.
Therefore, Mr. Stewart feels it is necessary to explain his
Spanish advertising without offending those, such as myself,
who feel differently.
I fully support his right to do what is necessary to prosper
his business.
I do feel that bigotry is not directed at other dealerships,
but at us who are assumed to hate those who speak Spanish.
I lived in south Florida for 20 years before moving to Port
St. Lucie.
I know how Dade County works. Hialeah, Little Havana
and Dade County in general, have a problem accepting Eng-
lish.
Being mostly from Cuba, they are under different rules,
and feel Spanish needs to be spoken. Bilingual is understood
to mean Spanish/English.
Those who came over in the beginning, after Castro, I have
known to be model citizens of this country.
I feel Mr. Stewart is a bit disingenuous when catering to
those who are not fluent in English.
It is understandable for a business to work with potential
customers.
There is also something wrong when 20 percent of the cus-
tomers complain 50 percent of the time.
These are customers who speak English.
The new ad campaign to ingratiate Mr. Stewart is under-
standable, but please leave out "respect for their culture,"
even if it may be so.
Mr. Stewart rightfully mentions how, when we go abroad,
those in the countries we're visiting are thrilled (except possi-
bly the French) when we stumble out a couple words in their
language.
Europeans have learned many languages in their schools,
including English.
It should not be too much to expect our "citizens" to do
likewise.
I'm not going into our Ellis Island immigrants who learned
English to survive.
I haven't seen the television ad with sub titles in English,
but I consider it an affront to my sensibilities.
We are "one nation indivisible," but you must want to be
part of this nation to qualify.
We cannot have one Hispanic and one English speaking
population.


I have many bilingual friends who work hard and realize
that this country was founded by people who spoke English.
I'm not talking about the early explorers.
If it were another language, I would be a strong supporter
of that language.
We, the people who are so diverse, must have one binding
force. That is common language.
I take offense to Mr. Stewart's comment about me possi-
bly "resenting Hispanics."
I'm glad to read that Toyota is the No. 1 choice of Hispanics
in America. It is also the No. I choice of everyone else in
America.
Mr. Stewart's new ad campaign needs no explanation. He
follows the money.

A response to Earl Stewart

I read with interest and frustration the article authored by
Mr. Stewart that appeared in the July 27 edition of Home-
town News.
I read with interest about the system you have in place that
enables customers to speak directly with your employees.
I applaud you for your managerial style in requiring your
employees to be responsible to the customers they serve.
I was, however, frustrated by the story about your Spanish,
with English subtitles, commercial you were so proud of.
May I offer that like you Mr. Stewart, I was'raised among
prejudice and bigotry. I was also raised among, went to
school with and served in the military alongside Mexicans,
Indians (not Native Americans Indians), Jews, Germans,
Negroes (not African Americans) and all other kinds of peo-
ple and I got along with them all.
They were, after all, good people, and most importantly,
they were Americans.
I have spent my whole life living in the "Sun Belt" with
short periods spent in Manhattan, St. Louis, Los Angles, San
Francisco and other cities:
I travel weekly to Mexico, Central and South America, and
am able to see the Latin countries at their worst and at their
best.
But frankly, I am alarmed at what I am seeing, and what is
taking place here in our country.
I am seeing immigrants, both legal and illegal, coming to
America and never assimilating, or even attempting to
assimilate, into our unique American culture.
They don't have to because of companies such as Home
Depot and Sears, plus manufacturers of all types of products
and services and individuals like you, who pander to this ilk
that has permeated our society.
Where else but in America can a person be born, raised,
live and die, and never have to learn the English language? .
The situation that exists is a disgrace. I submit, if one emi-
grates to the United States of America, then it is his/her obli-
gatiod to become a legal American citizen and assimilate
into our culture and embrace all that it provides.
History has shown time and time again that multi-cultural
societies cannot, and do not, last.
They foster resentment, prejudice, bigotry, crime, the list
goes on. Sadly, on a daily basis, we see before our very eyes
that this is true. .
I suggest that today's immigrants, certainly not all, but
most, are not of the same caliber that hav6 come before
them and they are encouraged and enabled by people such
as you.
You revealed much about yourself, Mr. Stewart, when your
wrote, 'All I want to do is sell as many Toyotas as I can."
Apparently you do Mr. Stewart, with disregard for your
contribution to the, demise of our American culture.
And for that you should be ashamed.

Earl Stewart responds: There seems to be a common thread
between these letters objecting to my Spanish commercial on
our local, English-speaking TVstations.
That thread, and common misunderstanding, is that I am
targeting Spanish-speaking people who, either understand
no English, or do not understand it very well.


This simply is not correct. My market research found that
the vast majority of Hispanics in Palm Beach County watch
English-speaking channels. These are the potential Toyota
buyers I am targeting. It's easy to understand why local His-
panics watch English- speaking TV if you have ever watched
the six Spanish channels (which all originate out of Miami).
The programming is of inferior quality and there is very little
variety. There may be a few Hispanics who watch English-
speaking TV to learn to speak English better
Do you really think my 60-second commercial is discourag-
ing these few from learning English?
Virtually all Hispanics living in Palm Beach County are
bilingual and fluent in both Spanish and English. They are
also mostly American citizens, like you and me. Most are sec-
ond or third generation Americans, have good paying jobs
and can afford to buy a new car Those relatively few Hispan-
ics who don't speak English can't afford to buy a car Many are
here illegally and don't even have driver licenses.
The response from our local Hispanic community has been
overwhelmingly positive. My commercial got their attention,
where it may not have had Ispoken in English. You can easily
understand why it got their attention if you can imagine
yourself living in another country watching TVin your second
language. Suddenly, "out of the blue" you are listening to a
Toyota commercial in Spanish. Virtually all Hispanics found
this very positive and several have bought cars because of this
ad and many more say they plan to.
I could understand why you would be angry with the TV
station if it ran Hispanic programming at times when you
wanted to watch TV But why are you angry because I ran a
60- second commercial?
I hate commercials (except my own, of course). I mute com-
mercials, change the channel or take the opportunity to run to
the kitchen or bathroom. When Isometimes accidentally have
to watch a commercial, (can't find my remote control fast
enough) I see lots of really obnoxious ones. Some are absolute-
ly terrible! (There is one car commercial where a balding guy
with a beard shouts at you). Isee very deceptive commercials,
which are obviously designed to trick us into buying from
them. How about the commercials for feminine hygiene prod-
ucts, hemorrhoid medications, or anti-flatulents? Why don't
these kinds of commercials upset you? Have you called or
written any of these advertisers? Ifyou did, I bet you didn't get
a response. In fact, I bet you can't even talk to them like you
can me.
In several letters, I was accused of "being all about making
money."You folks who pride yourselves on being betterAmeri-
cans than lam should understand thatAmerica is the land of
free enterprise and capitalism. With lots of hard work, every
American has a shot at the "golden ring." I won't apologize to
anybody for trying to make a profit in my business. Many of
these Hispanics, who a lot of the anti-Hispanic commercial
letter writers seem to resent, came to this country because they
were fleeing the communist state of Cuba. Making.profits and
money is frowned upon by communists. In Cuba, it's not "all
about money;" it's all about poverty except for the Communist
party leaders, who live quite well.
E Scott Fitzgerald said that the true test of a great mind is
being able to hold two opposing views in your mind at the
same time.
In past presidential elections, our country was virtually split
down the middle. If you are a Democrat, do you really think
that the half of the country that voted Republican is bad or
stupid?Iask the same question of the Republicans.
If you don't agree with me, why must you hate me and
threaten me? I respect your opinion even if I disagree; why
can't you respect mine?

Cost of cable

She is paying $17.25 a month for basic cable.

with any local news on them.

Defer taxes on your real

property with a 1031 Exchange


It almost sounds too
good to be true. Sell
your business or
investment real property
today and you can defer
paying the capital gains
taxes. You'll have more
money to reinvest now.
Commercial, invest-
ment,,rental, retail, office,
and many other kinds of
properties qualify, so you
can take advantage of the
many real estate bargains
currently available.
All you need is to know is
the basics of 1031
Exchange.

What is the purpose
of a 1031 Exchange?
A 1031 Exchange defers
capital gains taxes on the
sale of your business or
investment property.
That gives you more
money to invest in
business or investment
property now while
prices are more attrac-
tive.

What kind of
property is eligible
for a 1031 Exchange?
Almost any kind of real
property qualifies as long


as you use it for business
or investment. To defer
all capital gains taxes,
the replacement proper-
ty must be as valuable as
the one sold.

How does a 1031
Exchange work?

After you sell your
property, you have 180
days to use the proceeds
to replace it. You don't
pay the capital gains tax
until you sell the replace-
ment property.
The catch is you
cannot possess or con-
trol the sale proceeds at
any time between the
sale of your first property
and the purchase of the
replacement. A "Quali-
fied Intermediary" holds
the proceeds for you.

Can I use a 1031
Exchange for a
personal residence?
No. Your home may be
your most important
investment, but the
Internal'Revenue Service
(IRS) doesn't consider
private residences
investment property.

Choosing the right executor


W en people
think about
estate planning,
they typically think of
who will get their posses-
sions.
Upon further thought,
they recognize that the
most important deci-
sions they make will be
the identity of trusted
decision makers like
guardians, executors,
trustees, and agents.
If the individual has a
will, an executor or
personal representative
is named in the will to
manage the affairs of the
estate.
This person has the
responsibility of collect-
ing all the assets of the
person who has died,
managing those assets,
paying debts of the
estate, and then distrib-
uting the assets to heirs
or other beneficiaries.
A trustee is similar to
an executor, except the
trustee manages the
assets of the trust rather
than of the estate.
Because trusts often
remain in existence for
many years, the role of
trustee may be more
importantithan that of
executor.
An agent is the person
you appoint under a
power of attorney to
make decisions for you
in the event that you are
not able to do so for
yourself. The agent
under a power of attor-
ney for property will
make decisions regarding
the management of your
financial affairs.
The agent under a
health care power of
attorney (also known as
an advance, health care
directive or health care
proxy) Will make deci-
sions regarding your
health care.
If you do not have a,
power of attorney, it may
be necessary to appoint a
guardian or conservator
to make financial and
health care decisions for
you if you are not able to
make them for yourself.
In some states, a
separate guardian or
conservator may be
appointed for the care of
the individual and a
different person appoint-
ed as the guardian or
conservator of the
property, or estate, of the
individual during life-
time. You may appoint a
guardian or conservator
for your care in a power
of attorney.
Guardians of minor
children are "nominated"
in the will by the last


ROBERT KULAS

parent to die. Guardians
are "nominated" rather
than appointed because
the courts will give
preference to the nomi-
nee but are not bound by
it.
If a court determines
that the best interests of
the child would be
served by another
choice, they need not
heed your suggestion.
An example of this is
the tragic case of
Stephen and Sara Sher-
wood. Only nine days
after his return from
Iraq, Stephen shot his
wife and then himself.
This left his daughter an
orphan.
The authorities in
Colorado placed the
daughter in the tempo-
rary care of Sara's sister,
Ginny, and her husband,
who then sought to be
appointed as guardians.
Stephen's mother
objected and sought
appointment herself.
The trial court looked to
Stephen's will, because
he was the last parent to
die.,
Stephen's will nominat-
ed his mother and the
trial court considered
itself constrained by that
unless to do otherwise
would have caused
actual harm or danger.
The Colorado Supreme
Court reversed that'
decision and instructed
the trial court to deter-
mine which choice
would be in the best
interest of the child.
Many states also allow a
child over a certain age,
typically around age 13
or 14, to overrule the
nomination of guardian
in the will.
While the nomination
of a guardian is not a
guarantee, it does allow
you to give the court
guidance, which it will
use to make its determi-
nation.
If all other things are
equal, the court will heed
your advice.
The nomination or
appointment of trusted

SooThe YouR Soul


Genesis 2:8 declares,
"Now the Lord God
planted a garden in
the east, in Eden; and
there He put a man He had
formed."
Is the book of Genesis
authentic ancient history?
Did .God really create a
beautiful place called the
"Garden of Eden?"
Did God actually form
Adam from the. dust of the
ground, and put him in
this "Paradise?"
Are these Bible accounts
true?
Come along with me and
let's examine archaeologi-
cal and geological discov-
eries that clarify the
answers to these impor-
tant questions.
The book of Genesis says
that God formed Adam.
from the dust of the
ground.
The Hebrew name for
Adam derives from a word
meaning, "to be red."
So, the first man was.
called Adam, and he was
formed from the red clay
of the earth.
Adam's skin color was
probably reddish in '
appearance, similar to that
of a Native American.
It is believed that his
genes had all of the
variations of skin pigment
found our modern world
today.
In Genesis 2:10-14,
Moses, tells us that the
headwaters of the four
rivers were located in the
Garden of Eden.
He names them as the
Euphrates, Tigris, Gihon,
and Pishon.
The tremendous
amount of water flowing
from these four rivers'
came from headwaters,
meaning deep springs,


that were like artesian
wells.
Today, the Euphrates
and Tigris are still known
by their ancient names
The other two rivers
have also been identified.
One of them, the Gihon is
today's Araxes River. It is
located in Turkey, and
flows eastward, forming
the international bound-
ary between Armenia and
Azerbaijan on the north,
and Turkey and Iran, on
the south.
The Pishon River is
known today.as the
Uizhun River, and mean-
ders between ancient gold
mines, and lodes of lapis
lazuli. Lodes are vein-like
deposits.
Lapis lazuli is a semi-

Let us now unravel some
other mysteries of the
Garden of Eden.
The Hebrew word for
garden is "gan," meaning,
"walled garden." This
indicates that the Garden
of Eden was enclosed, but
not necessarily by walls.
Bible historians believe.
that the Garden of Eden
was an alpine valley
embraced by towering.
mountains.
Archeologists claim to
have identified the loca-
tion of the Garden of Eden.
They place it near Tabriz, a
city northwest of Tehran,
Iran.
Ironically, reddish clay

Tabriz.

documents were written
on papyrus, then it was
rolled up and tied with a
string.
To validate the docu-
ment, the owner, or writer
of the document, pressed
a signet ring into a lump of
clay, placed on the string's
knot.
The clay seals survived
conditions that destroyed
many other ancient
artifacts. Archaeologists
have uncovered literally
hundreds of these clay
seals.
Some of them are more
than five thousand years
old.
They provide significant
insight into ancient
cultural beliefs. Many of
the discovered clay seals
are reminiscent of those
described in the biblical
accounts in Genesis.
Some have considered
the familiar story of
creation to be only a myth.
Yet in Sumer, the site of
the most ancient known
civilization, archaeologists
have discovered a clay
seal, known as the Adam
and Eve temptation seal.
It depicts a man and
woman, reaching for the
fruit of a tree. A serpent is


shown behind the woman.
This ancient artifact is
now kept in the famed
British Museum.
This five-thousand-year
old seal portrays an event
that wasn't written about
until around 1440 BC.
The seal's artist knew
about the story of Adam
and Eve thousands of
years before there was a
written record of the story.
May God richly bless you
and your family as you
experience the joys of
sharing great Bible stories
and archaeological discov-
eries with me.
We also invite you to join
us for our informal and
anointed Sunday after-
noon worship services. All
are welcome. We are a
small, interactive, non-
denominational group. We
share life-changing truths
from the Bible that teach
you how to live successful-
ly.
We offer free gift cards
for those in need each
Sunday. We emphasize
praise and worship and
above all, love for one
another.

ing the entire program.
"As time went on," said
Sheriff Mascara, "the
Superintendent re-evalu-
ated the situation and
said he would fund a little
more than he was funding
this year, which amounts
roughly $2.5 million. That
left the Port St. Lucie
Police Department with a
share of approximately
$1.7 million, and the
Sheriff's Department with
a bill of $1.5 million."
Due to the budget cuts,
the Port St. Lucie Police
and St. Lucie Sheriff's
departments say they
cannot make up the
shortfall
However, Sheriff Mas-
cara said "with the $2.5
million from the school
district, we can opera-
tionally cover all the
schools in the county as
well as Fort Pierce
schools. Superintendent
Lannon said he would
give the Sheriff's Depart-
ment $1.7 million and the
Port St. Lucie Police
Department $750,000,
numbers based upon the
amount of deputies or
officers in the program."
That being the case,
Port St. Lucie Police
would be handling
schools within the City of
Port St. Lucie.
Simply stated: under
the current agreement
between the two law
enforcement agencies
and the Superintendent of
Schools, the Sheriff's
Department would be
responsible for everything
north of Midway Road,
and the Port St. Lucie
Police Department would
cover schools south of
Midway Road.
"Operationally, my staff
spent a tremendous
amount of time putting.
an operation and deploy-
ment plan together of the
18 or 19 deputies we have
and how to deploy them,"
said Mascara.
"There will be some
schools with no deputy
assigned; however each
school would continue to
see a deputy's presence at
the school. I sat down
with the Superintendent
on July 25, and he was in
agreement with it and
happy with it, but there
still appears to be confu-
sion and contention
regarding the issue,
specifically from the City
of Port St. Lucie."
Councilwoman
Michelle Berger doesn't
find it confusing at all;
rather, she finds it infuri-
ating. She claims the
reduction in the SRO pro-
gram will adversely affect
children in the school dis-
trict.
In a memo sent to Port
St. Lucie Mayor Pat Chris-
tensen, members. of the
City Council; City Manag-
er Don Cooper and Police
Chief Skinner, she said, "I

Two schools in St. Lucie

sense to put police where

zens are. If we allow these
to fade away, the byprod-
uct may be a community

increased juvenile crime
and violence statistics."
According to Berger, last
year the same issue
cropped up just weeks
before the start of the
school year when the SRO


contract was rejected by the
School Board because they
didn't want to pay for SROs
for every school.
Port St. Lucie Vice-Mayor
Jack Kelly agreed that it is a
frustrating situation, but
voiced optimism that an
agreement could be
reached, saying, "We're still
trying to work things out
with the Sheriff and the
County. I think it would be
a shame if we let the kids
down. We need to get
together and make sure the
quality of protection in our


schools is up to the stan-
dard it should be."
There' were schools left
off the list. She said the Port
St. Lucie City Council made
the decision last year to add
more officers at the
expense of Port St. Lucie
taxpayers in order to ensure
every school was covered.
Superintendent Lannon
says there is a plan in place,
and students and staff at
every school in St. Lucie
County will be safe. "We're
not going to let the public
down. Safety and security


are the number one issues."
He said, "When it became
evident that the issue of
SROs would be a political
target and talking point, I
knew we'd have to go
through a dance.
"I also knew that our
law enforcement agencies
and public leaders under-
stand our collective.
responsibility to every
individual in the county,
whether they are 7 or 76
years old."
Even though school has
already started and a plan


is still not firmly in place,
Mr. Lannon said there are
a variety of options.
"The $2.4 million we
have in the budget for
security is county wide,"
said Mr. Lannon.
"I'm not going to dole it
out piecemeal, because
that is inefficient and
deals with turf. We need to
look at the totality of
resources from all three
places and I will volunteer
to be the warehouse of
information and bring all
of us together."

20th-Century
Jewelry
The jewels of Spanish
painter Salvador Dali
were more extravagant
and were more repre-
sentative of design for its
own sake than as a func-
tion of the jewel to be
worn. Although a great
deal of modern jewelry is
designed and made by
large firms, the tradition
of the artist craftsman is
strong in Scandinavia
and the United States,
where silver, semi-
precious stones, ham-
mered copper, and
other less costly materials
are commonly Used,
ljstic:s are often
employed in expensive
jewelry. Arts-and-crafts
shops produce, vast
selections of abstract
and naturalistic designs
in rings bracelets, ear-
ings, necklaces, and
brooches. Although jew-
elry in the 19th and early
20th century was worn
primarily by women, in
the late 20th Century
some men were wearing
jewelry such as
neckchains, bracelets,
and earrings.

my reasons out to others
who may take issue with
my Spanish-speaking TV
ad, I am reproducing
three typical negative e-
mails.

Letter No. 1
Mr. Stewart: I could not
believe seeing your
commercial in Spanish
with English subtitles.
Why not move your
business over there
instead of here? I would
not buy from you after
seeing that commercial.
Others agree with me.
This is America, not some
Third World country. You
are not doing them a
favor either by catering to
them. They need to
conform to our customs,
not us conforming to
their Third World culture.
You should be ashamed of
yourself.

Letter No. 2
Maybe you need to talk
to Tom McKenna of
Seacoast Water in Stuart,
who is being forced out of
his business by his His-
panic landlord because
he just wants tenants that
appeal to Hispanics.
Wake up and see what
is happening in this
country and you are a

part of it.
Sure you are entitled to
your views, but you are
going to lose a lot of-
customers who do not
share your views.
Believe it or not, people
are turning away from
companies who are
advertising in Spanish.
America should come
first and the language
here is English, not
Spanish.

Letter No. 3
Thislis for Earl Stewart.
I saw your ad on TV the
other night and must say
I was shocked. An ad in
Spanish; do whatyou
must.
Not only will I not buy a
X2 Scion from you, but I
will ask my friends and
fellow employees not to
buy a car from you.
Why should I push one
for English? I don't need
your ads in my face in
Spanish.

My innocent and only
intent was to sell some
more Toyotas and Scions
to American citizens of
South Florida who are of
Hispanic descent.
I advertised on Eng-
lish-speaking channels,
rather than Spanish for
two reasons:
The vast majority of
American citizens of
Hispanic descent living
in South Florida speak
English and watch the
same channels you and I
watch.
My ad was not aimed at
illegal immigrants who
are very few and can't
buy cars anyhow. Most
can't afford a car and, if
they could; cannot buy a
car without a Social
Security number, drivers'
license, insurance, etc.
The only Spanish
channels shown in our
area originate in Miami,
and because of their vast
audience, are cost pro-
hibitive for me to adver-
tise on.
I am paying $100 to
$350 per ad and the
Spanish channels, which
all originate out of Miami
eand cover all of South
Florida, cost about
$5,000 for a 30- second
spot. This is way over my
allowable advertising
budget.
You may wonder why I
spoke in Spanish and
there are also two rea-
sons for that: It is a sign
of respect when you
speak to someone in
their native tongue or the

Speaking in Spanish on
a 100 percent English TV
channel "cuts the clut-
ter."
It got your attention
and the attention of
many more. It was very
controversial with lots of
supporters and some
detractors.
This is the goal of any
advertiser: to have his
commercial noticed.
I don't know the
specifics of the matter
with Tom McKenna and
his lease. I believe that
you are referring to a
story in the Palm Beach
Post.
I am a businessman
and I do know that a
landlord cannot force a
tenant "out of business."
Tenants have rights just
like landlords.
A landlord can elect
not to renew a lease, in
which case, that tenant
would have to lease
space elsewhere. He
would still be in busi-
ness, but at a different
location. Landlords have
rights too.
If landlords believe
they can lease their
properties to other
tenant that will enhance
their profits, that is what
free enterprise is all
about and America is all
about free enterprise.
In some countries, the
government can tell
businessmen who they
can and cannot lease to
or do business with.
I am in the process of
expanding my Toyota
dealership. I,purchased
the property next door to
my property. On that
property is a Cuban
restaurant, El Colonial.
. Their lease in up next
month and I will not be
renewing it, but I am
working with the owner,
Jamie Gomez, so that he
will have plenty of time
to find a new location.
Jamie and his father,
Jose, operate the restau-
rant and are American
citizens who came here -
from Cuba.
By the way, Jaime
watches English-speak-
ing TV loves my com-
mercials and recently
bought a new Toyota
Land Cruiser from me.

Your computer is safer



from viruses than you think


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This
There are a lot of
myths surrounding
computers. Some
based on reality, some
based on "the way tech-
nology used to be" and
some based on plain old
fear and paranoia.
Some computer myths
tend to be so prevalent
that I often see veteran
computer users falling
prey to some of them.
This week, I thought I
would try to dispel some
of these myths.
The first myth I want to
address is that, "if you
connect to the Internet
you will immediately
become a target for some
hacker who is out to steal
your identity."
This myth is one that is
born out of paranoia and
misinformation. We have
all seen the stories in the
news, stories about some
hacker getting caught
accessing some big
company database or
stories about some poor
people getting their
identities stolen, but the
fact of the matter is most
hackers just aren't inter-
ested in you. Hackers
tend to go after the "big"
targets, such as corporate
databases, and don't
spend too much time
hunting individual end
users.
But that's not what the
Internet security software
companies want you to
think. There is a big
market for computer
security programs and
firewall software, but if it's
not configured or
installed correctly (which
is most of the time) it can
bring your machine to a
crawl and still leave you
vulnerable.
As long as you have an
up-to-date anti-virus
program installed and
running, and have all the.
current operating system
updates installed, you
should be safe plhigging
your machine into the
Internet.
If it's identity theft you
are worried about, I
would be more con-
cerned about all those big
corporate entities out
there that already have
your personal informa-
tion on file. It's databases
such as those that are the
real targets. Why take the
time to hack into one
user's machine for one
identity when there are so
many other systems out
there that hold thousands
(even millions) of identi-
ties in their databases?
Another common myth
that I run into is, "regular-
ly defragging my hard
drive will keep it running
smoothly."
This myth has its
origins from the way
technology used to be.
Sure, if you are running
an old 486 machine with
Windows 95 and a 1 gig
hard drive, defragging it
periodically will clean
things up a bit and give
you a noticeable increase
in performance.
If, on the other hand,
you are running some-
thing a little more mod-
ern (any machine built
within the last five years)
defragging the hard drive
to increase performance
or to correct some soft-
ware problem is just a
waste of time.
Today's operating
systems are designed to
run:"fragmented" and any
increase in performance
gained by defragging will


typically be un-notice-
able. Sure, it's nice to see
all those red areas turn
blue when you do defrag
a modern machine, but
don't be fooled. You aren't
gaining much. I will
concede that running
defrag periodically to
"tidy up" is good practice,
but it's not the cure-all
that some people still
think it is.
The next myth comes
from advertisements
computer manufacturers
run that are not clear.
Many ads today for new
computers tout their
systems as being "wire-
less ready" right out of
the box.
And, to a degree, this
may be true, with things
such as WiFi chips being
built into the mother-
board, but the thing that
the ads tend to leave out
(or bury in fine print) is
that you need to be in an
area of wireless service
for it to work.
If you don't have
wireless Internet access
and are contemplating
buying a new computer
that's wireless ready
because you are under
the impression that it will
connect to the Internet
right out of the box, you
are about to make a
mistake. All this "wireless
ready" stuff means is that
you won't need any extra
hardware to connect to

an existing wireless
service. It doesn't mean
that you can just turn it
on and be online as some
people have been led to
believe.
In order for these
systems to work, they
need to be in a wireless
"cloud;" either your own
wireless service, DSL or
cable plugged into a
wireless router, or a


public wireless hotspot,
such as those found in
many hotels, airports and
coffee shops.
, I hope this helps and
until next week, happy
computing!

Five-star cruising an exceptional experience


Struggle To Bathe?


Walk-In Bathtub


lA-A


I just returned from an
Alaska cruise aboard the
Regent Seven Seas
Mariner. What an experi-
ence!
I have been arranging
travel niany years and have
heard the good, bad and
the ugly about cruising.
All I can say is, you have
to experience it for your-
self.
There is so much to talk
about, but I decided to
focus on the ship.
I would consider myself
a seasoned cruiser and
having sailed on many
vessels. I never had a bad
experience. This was my
first luxury cruise, and it
was an entirely different
experience altogether.
Upon arriving at the pier,
the Regent staff was there
to escort passengers.
On board, water or
champagne was offered,
and we were escorted to
the lounge for check in.
The entire process from

bus to our stateroom was
less than 10 minutes. This
was something I was not
used to. There were
virtually no lines.
The vessel accommo-
dates 700 passengers and a
crew of 454.
Every stateroom has a
veranda and very generous
accommodations. The
king-size bed was covered
in white duvet. The linen
was Anchini Italian. I don't
know what the brand was,
but we slept very, very well.
A stocked refrigerator
and a chilled bottle of
champagne awaited us. As
a matter of fact, all drinks
are complementary on
board. Whether you drink
alcohol or not, it is very
nice not to have the
constant interruption of
having to sign a check.
By the way; did I mention
that gratuities are included
in the fare?
It changes the entire feel
of your cruise.

All of the crew is at your
service. Their answer to
most questions is, "yes
madame" (or sir). They go
out of their way to make
sure you are happy and
comfortable and don't
expect anything in return.
The dress code was
country club casual.
For dining, men were not
required to wear jackets.
Everyone seemed to enjoy
this relaxed atmosphere.
There were two specialty
restaurants: Signatures,
offering French-style
cuisine, and Latitudes,
with an Indochine menu
and waitresses in tradition-
al attire.
There is no additional
'fee for eating at these
restaurants; however,
reservations are required.
I cannot say enough
about the food. The
presentation and service
made the entire experience
unbelievable.

the Compass Rose, which
always offered a wide
variety of delectable
dishes.
Of course, you could eat
in your stateroom or on
your veranda. One particu-
lar evening, we decided to
dine on the veranda; We
ordered an entree and a
glass of wine, and were
sent an entire bottle.
Different lounges offered
various entertainment.
The Observation Lounge
was a particular favorite.
People sat and chatted
with each other comfort-
ably while the guitar
player, Frankie Holiday,
played. Later the Mariner
Five, a five-piece orchestra,
played some dance
favorites.
The evening shows were
well produced and per-
formed. They included a
very entertaining magician
and first-run movies
offered with hot popcorn
in the Constellation
Theater.
I felt as though I was on a
teenage date. It was
different and fun.
Those who decided to
stay aboard while in port
had plenty of activities to
choose from.
Regent is known for its
onboard enrichment
programs, which included
wine tasting, art history
and travel discussions. All
were well informed and
interesting.
If you missed a seminar,
you could catch it later on
your stateroom TV
The spacious onboard
gym had state-of-the-art
equipment, an
aerobics/yoga/Pilates
room with an adjacent
steam room. All were
connected to the Carita
Spa, which offered a
variety of packages.

this to other mass markets?

first of its kind for St. Lucie
County and the second in
the state, it is unclear what
rates will apply, Ms. Outlaw
said.
Administrators will seek
guidance from county com-
missions on how to proceed,
she added.
"We are going to catalog
all of the staff time that has
been applied to the project,"
she said.
Ms. Outlaw hopes to have
the calculations complete
and make a report to the
board byAug. 28.
But her initial response to
commissioners: The tally
will likely result in a "big tick-
et item" or "large dollar
amount" to bill to the devel-
opers.
"This is the first time that
we heard about the issue,"
said Ernie Cox, president of
Family Lands Remembered
LLC, the company coordi-
nating the program. "We're
going to follow up with the
county. We need to get back
together with staff to figure
out what it means."
To date, the Florida Con-
servancy & Development
Group has paid upwards of
$53,000 to the county, says
Ms.Villanueva.
That includes a June 15
payment of about $26,000
for an independent trans-
portation consultant to
review the proposed pro-
ject's regional impact.

It also paid a $27,000

Improve schools
Florida has just received a
50th rating for our country's
school systems.
That is the worst school
system in the country


according to talk host Joyce
Kaufman, who made this
announcement on the air,
on Tuesday, Aug. 14.
I'm urging parents and
other taxpayers to call Gov.
Charlie Crist, at (850) 488-
4441, and ask him to please
call the Florida legislature
back into an emergency ses-
sion to give him control over
the schools for a nine-
month period, or for how
long it takes to fix the situa-
tion.

That's what the Illinois leg-
islature did when the Chica-
go school system was non-
functioning.
This is not fair to our stu-
dents who deserve the same
type of education we
received.
It is certainly not fair to us
taxpayers and parents, who
shell out on average $9 thou-
sand per person each year
for the state's school system.
That system is, now
labeled 50th, the worst
school system in the coun-
try.
Please call Gov. Crist, and
urge that changes be made
immediately.
It's up to you to urge
changes, because politicians
will only do what has to be
done, nothing more.
The school lobby in Talla-
hassee that keeps buying the
politicians in order to keep
the status quo has to be got-
ten rid of.
We can't go on like this
anymore.
Stop importing goods

I would like to know why
we are importing food and
everything else that is con-
taminated from China.
The toothpaste is contam-
inated, as well as the tilapia.
I had a personal experi-
ence with my daughter buy-
ing some toothpaste that
was contaminated. She
started to use it until she saw
the warning in the newspa-
per.
It was also in the paper
about the contaminated
tilapia.
Why aren't we checking
this?
Why aren't we doing
something about not
importing this bad food and
bad products from China
when we have enough peo-
ple here to supply our own
food, our own fish, and our
own toothpaste?
Even Colgate had a scan-
dal.
This has got to stop, and
somebody has to start it.

Don't impose your
beliefs onto others

Remember the dozen-
plus holier-than-thous who
voted to impeach President
Clinton, who were having
affairs themselves?
Remember Newt (Gin-
grich) serving his second
wife with divorce papers,
while she was in the hospital


recovering from cancer sur-
gery?
Now it turns out that
(many) "sanctity of mar-
riage" types have been using
the services of a (Washing-
ton), D.C., madam.
Beware of those who tell
you what to do, who preach
to you about what's good for
you. (Some) of them are
actively committing the sins
they preach against.
The "holy book" they wave
in your face does not, in fact,
forbid homosexuality.
It does, however, forbid
eating pigs, in any way,
shape or form.
If it's the inerrantt word of
God," then you don't get to
just choose the parts that
feed bigotry.
There are numerous
injunctions not to lie, cheat,
steal (or) hate.
The one message repeat-
edly hammered is that the
duty of any spiritual being is
to care for those less fortu-
nate, to have mercy on those
who are in pain (and) to pro-
vide for the needy.
Pro-life means supporting
health care, food and shelter
for those who are already
born.
Pro-life means opposing a
... war based on flat lies.
Pro-life means protecting
the land and water and air
that sustains us.
You are welcome to
believe and practice any-
thing you want, in private.
But you no more have the
right to intrude upon my life
than I have the right to tell
you what to do.

Stores should ban
Heely-wearing youths
When did it become OK
for children to skate inside
stores and restaurants?
It is dangerous (and
annoying) to allow children
to skate around others trying
to shop or just enjoy a meal.
They wear Heelys in the
superstores, grocery stores,
even steak houses. But
they're not allowed in the
schools. Wonder why?
The managers are afraid to
say anything to the parents I
guess because they figure
anyone (who) allows (his)
child to be that rude proba-
bly would not care.
I had a manager tell me it
was hard to not let them use
them since they sell Heelys
in their store.
If that's the case, I guess I
can use skateboards, bicy-

cles, or roller-skates while
shopping.
(I'm) not sure what the
excuse is for the restaurants.
I bet the servers just love
having kids skate past them
while they carry trays full of
food.
Heelys are toys that should
be played with at home with
proper safety gear.
The fault is not the child.
They deserve guidance that
evidently their "parents"
don't (offer).
The stores should beware.
Those same parents will be
quick to sue because the
stores allowed their child to
skate in the store and were
injured when they fell.
I hope the stores have a lot
of insurance when I get hit
by one of those roller skating
missiles that they allow in
their stores.

Woman's husband
a racist
To the woman who
claims she is married to a
Hispanic man (who refuses
to speak Spanish), I say you
are incorrect, you are mar-
ried to a wannabe White
man, not a Hispanic man.
Anyone who would
ignore people because they
spoke to them in their natu-
ral language, is clearly a
racist.
I've lived in NewYork City
most of my life. I was edu-
cated there.
I read, write, speak, think
and even dream in English.
I speak to my family and
friends in English, but if I
come across someone, any-
one who needs to speak to
me in Spanish, I give them
the respect and honor they
deserve, by speaking to
them in Spanish.
This person gets praised
by his wife, but I'm quite
positive, he gets no respect
from anyone who knows
him.
People aren't stupid. They
know where he is coming
from, trying to deny his
background.
He is more than likely
even shunned by his own
relatives and looked upon
as nothing more than a trai-
tor to his race and language.
I'm also sure she is going
to claim that her ancestors
came here legally and in
one year learned English,
right?
Yeah, right.








Concoctions keep yards healthy


Many of us would
like to use natural
alternatives in our
gardens as alternate
methods of combating
insects and diseases.
As much as we hate to,
we all need to take action
when bugs and diseases
invade our plants and
veggies. After all, most of
the beautiful plants that
you may have in your
garden took a lot of loving
care to get and keep them
looking healthy. After all
the hard work the last
thing you want are
unwanted creatures
feeding on your prize
flowers.
Before you head out to
your favorite garden.
center to buy a chemical
compound, you might
want to try some of the
following natural remedies
first.
Most of the ingredients
for these remedies are
common household items
that you may already have
or are readily available at
the grocery store.

Soap and water
Oftentimes, insects on
your plants can be easily
controlled with an all-
natural soap spray solu-
tion.
This method works best
if the infestation is caught
before it gets out of
control. The ingredients
are simple: detergent-
based liquid soap, such as
ordinary dish detergent,
and water. Mix one
tablespoon of dish deter-
gent with one gallon of
water. Put the solution in a
hand or pump up sprayer
and spray generously on
your plant.
Be sure to apply the
solution under the leaves
of the plant.
You should re-apply the
solution at least once a
week or more often in the
event of heavy rains. To
avoid burning the plants,
apply either very early in
the morning or in the

evening, after the direct
hot sun is no longer hitting
the plants.

Killer garlic
One of my favorite
natural solutions is made
from something we all love
to add to our food for
flavor and good health.
The flavorful spice I am
talking about is garlic.
Garlic actually makes a
killer insecticide solution
that works even to help
control mosquitoes in
your yard.
Start out with one whole
garlic clove and two cups
of fresh water. Combine
the garlic clove with the
water in a blender. Blend
the solution at high speed
until the mixture is of a
puree consistency. Place
the mixture in a container
and set aside for about 24
hours. Strain the mixture
and add to one gallon of
fresh water. Place the
solution in a hand or
pump sprayer and spray
liberally the top and
bottom of the plant
foliage. Apply the solution
once a week or more often
in the event of rain.
You can also add the
solution to a hose-end
sprayer and spray the
grass and leaves of nearby
trees in your garden or
deck area.
The mixture will help
keep pesky mosquitoes at
bay while you are enter-
taining, or just lounging in

A dose of pepper
Here is a natural solu-
tion to help keep garden
nibblers at bay such as
rabbits, deer and squirrels.
'The solution is non-
toxic and will not harm
any wildlife.
To start, obtain six to 10
hot peppers and two cups
of fresh water and place
the ingredients in a
blender. Blend at high
speed for a couple of
minutes and then store
the mixture in a covered
container for 24 hours.
Strain the mixture
completely with a fine
mesh strainer or possibly
cheesecloth.
Place the finished
product in a sprayer with
an additional quart of
fresh water. Spray plants
thoroughly once a week or
more often in the event of
rain.
As always, do not spray
during the heat of the
afternoon sun to avoid
burning your-plants.
I have not personally
tried this remedy, but I
have been told that it
helps.
You can also add hot
pepper to your birdseed to
help keep squirrels frorfm
eating out of the feeder.
The birds do not taste the
pepper but the squirrels
do. It really Works.

The true formula for success


in life begins within oneself


If you are going on a
long journey, you fill
up your gas tank
before leaving and load
the necessary extra
supplies needed to safely
make the journey.
If you have a long day
ahead and need all the
energy you can muster,
you eat a hearty break-
fast first to give you the
stamina to make it well
into the day.
Successful, happy and
spiritual-based people
fill up their "spiritual gas
tank" as well, by doing
daily devotions that
psyche them up before
they start their day.
The world is a hectic
place. Winners in the
game of life are those
who are best prepared to
handle the stress.
The following affirma-
tion has been compiled
from thoughts and
inspirations my friends,
clients and readers have
given me over the past
five years of writing the
"Spirit Guide" column.
If you were to say this
out loud upon awakening
each day, the positive
benefits you will feel and
reap during the day, to
help cope with any
challenge, will give you a
distinct edge as you
travel the road of life.

Morning affirmation
and meditation

Each morning when I
awake, I give thanks and
feel much gratitude.for
my abundant, happy life.
I have plenty of every-
thing I want and need to
make me happy. I have
abundant health. I have
plenty of money. Have
trust, faith, patience and
freedom to do all the
things I truly love. I feel
safe and protected. I
have.a wonderful, loving-
and caring family. I have
many great spiritual
friends. I have plenty of
love and happiness. I am


JAMES TUCKER
TheSpirit Guide


using my higher bless-
ings to help myself and
others lead a rich, full
life. I face each chal-
lenge, bless it for what it
taught me and handle it
with ease. I thank it for
giving me renewed
strength to face life each
day and grow in heart
and spirit. I wake up
each day knowing that
more of all these wonder-
ful gifts are on the way.
For this and the gift of
life itself, I am eternally
grateful. I claim and
accept everything in my
mind, heart and spirit.
Mine is a great life, well
lived and all is well. And
so it is today and for all
my future days to come.

The true formula for
-success (summed up)

First, think positive
thoughts..Surrender the
ego and follow the heart.
We are just about as
happy as we make up our
hearts to be. Life is like a
river. A river has to flow
freely or it will get divert-
ed or polluted.
Second, feel worthy to
receive as well as give, so'
your energy is flowing.
We live in an abundant
universe. Lack comes
when we freeze in fear
and live by the mind
instead of the heart.
'Visualize that you have
more than you need as in
the affirmation above.,
Third,-give back from
your abundance. Think
deeply on the signifi-


chance of this one state-
ment. Focus on making
the best use of what you
have, not on what you
don't have.
Fourth, believe deeply
that more good is on its
way. The supreme law is
like attracts like.
You can do all this and
more. Your happiness
depends on it. Then,
when your higher good is
flowing toward you and
your survival is assured,
give back. Pass the torch
of truth and freedom to
the next generation and
those hungry to learn the
secrets of living a good
life. Your life is now
justified. The true formu-
la for success is living
and working in your life
and flourishing. The
sweetest news is the best
is yet to come.

Comedian


gets serious

for a cause


BY. SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Comedian Rene, Bray
was given the nickname
"The Dirty Lady of Come-
dy" when she first got into
comedy, some 20 years
ago, because of the sexual
innuendos in her routines.
Today, the newcomer to
Port St. Lucie is bringing
both her comedy and her
advocacy of strict punish-'
ment for sexual predators
to the Treasure Coast.
Neither comedy nor
advocacy was something
Ms. Bray envisioned doing.
'At the last class reunion,
no one could remember
me speaking," she said. "I
was shyand quiet until I
turned 30. Someone told
me I should go to an open
mic night. When I stepped
on stage, I was the most
comfortable I'd ever been.
I was a divorced mom with
three kids. We traveled the
country and it was good
for us. When we were at
home, I'd finish a show on
Saturday night and drive
home all night to be with
my kids Sunday-Tuesday.


When my son was in third
' grade, he said his mom
was a comedian. The
teacher wanted to hear a
joke and my son said that
he was not allowed to talk
like that!"
Ms. Bray's close relation-
ship with her children led
her to become a victim's
rights advocate.
"My middle daughter
was molested at 11 and we
convicted him," she said.
"He served 617 days and
within three weeks of his
release he was working at a,
Discovery Zone and volun-
teering at an Orlando high
school, I never thought of
myself doing something
other than comedy, but
when we found him at Dis-
covery Zone, I called the
local television news
reporter and went on TV to
tell the story.
"I found out that (the
urge) is incurable, that they
will do it again. He hasn't
been caught again, but he's
always kept a job near chil-
dren."
As part of her advocacy,
Ms. Bray helped pass Flori-
da's chemical castration

cedure mandatory under
certain circumstances.
She talks about the prob-

her shows and people
often come up to her to tell
her their stories. She also
speaks to parent-teacher
groups and law enforce-
ment agencies about the
problem.
Her recent move to Port

pleas from friend Larry Sil-

Club, where she has fre-

"I have been in love with
Port St. Lucie for a lot of

John, Vyki Sabo:

a theatrical

power couple


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Port St. Lucie residents
John and Vyki Sabo started
dating after John acciden-
tally stabbed himself in
the stomach during a col-
lege repertory play.
Seeking realism as he
played Jerry, a man who
impales himself on a
knife, in Edward Albee's
"The Zoo Story," the 21-
year-old John used a real
knife, albeit a short one,
and got carried away dur-
ing the performance.
Vyki held his hand on
the way to the hospital;
what John thought was a
scratch pierced his liver.
John says that Vyki, who
had stopped John from'
using a stiletto for greater
authenticity, probably
saved his life. They have
been together for 39 years.
The couple met in
Cleveland, where John
grew up and where Vyki's
father chaired the music
department at Western
Reserve College.
After their marriage,
they moved to Utica, N.Y.
and John ran the theater
department at Mohawk
Valley Community Col-
lege.
The desire to run a four-
year program took them
to York College, in York, Pa.
Vyki kept her hand in the
entertainment business
doing commercials and
consumer tips on the
radio. Then an offer from
the school district in
Southbury, Conn. took
them to New England,
where John ran the theater
program for 15 years.
There, they created a
student-run educational
television station 'that
became a CNN affiliate
and started Possible
Dreams Productions.'
"I got interested in film,"
John says. "I wrote a script
and formed accompany to
film it on video. We took
over an amusement park
in the early morning and'
late at.night to film, It was
in the early days of analog
video and it was shown


locally. It was a wonderful
adventure."
While in Connecticut,
Vyki received a graduate
degree in music fromWes-
leyan University and com-
posed original music for a
version of "Alice in Won-
derland," which they pro-
duced.
In 2003, the couple
moved to Florida to be
closer to their son and
grandchildren.. John met
Linda West, who was
active in the Barn Theatre,
and the couple got
involved there.
They worked on "HMS
Pinafore" last year. This
year, both serve on the
board of directors John
as vice president for mar-
keting and Vyki as vice
present overseeing the-
atrical productions.
This year, John will
direct Agatha Christie's
"The Spider's Web," which
will run in April. Possible
Dreams Productions was
involved in the recent per-
formance of Richard
Rodgers' musical "Two by
Two" at the Aldersgate
Methodist Church in Palm
City.
John was the director
and Vyki the musical
director; John Sabo hopes
to take the production on
the road.

John and Vyki Sabo


"Possible Dreams Pro-
ductions could be a road
company," he said.
"We could tour some of
the gated communities
that have facilities and
some of the theaters. You
spend six-12 weeks on a
production that runs for a
weekend or a week. It
would be nice for it to
have a longer life."
He and Vyki are also
working on an original
musical and Vyki is busy
as choir director for Alder-
sgate United Methodist
Church and as an adjunct


at Indian River Commu-
nity College, teaching
voice and musical appre-
ciation. She is also a
soloist, a composer and a
director.
The multi-talented
couple has been to, the
.Amazon and been sky
diving, and Vyki says that
life has been an adven-
ture.
"I've never been bored
with the man," she says.
"We have a very full life.
We don't have a lot of
money, but boy, we've
had a lot of fun."

Fort Pierce Jazz &
Blues Society has big
plans for fall season
Daryl Bey's departure
at the helm of the Fort
Pierce Jazz & Blues
Society left big shoes to
fill, but the organization
is already planning some
special events and some
returning favorites for
the upcoming season.
Two programs for
school kids will introduce
some 5,000 local children
to the joys of music.
Caribbean Sound,
known for its programs
that emphasize the
history and background
of Caribbean music, will
perform on Oct. 4 and
JazzReach, which offers
entertaining and educa-
tional music programs,
will perform on Nov. 15.
Both shows will take
place at the Sunrise
Theatre. Area schools are
invited to participate in
an essay contest relating
to the Sunrise Theatre;
winners will earn the
right to have a show for
their individual school
and the writer will
receive a scholarship.
The Society is seeking
individuals and organiza-
tions who would like to
name a scholarship,
perhaps to recognize a
loved one or honor a
special person's love of
music. Scholarships can
be as small as $100 to as
much as $5,000.
Community support is
needed to make these
programs a reality and
sponsorships are avail-
able.
Contact Chris
Dzadovsky at (772) 460-
5299 or at
info @jazzsociety.org.

Jazz Jams are back
The Society also has
announced that Jazz
Jams are back, beginning
Wednesday, Sept. 5 at
Harbor Place in Port St.
Lucie and Thursday,
Sept. 6 at the Fort Pierce
Community Center on
Indian River Drive.
The entertainment
starts at ,7 p.m. every
Wednesday and Thurs-
day; admission is $2 and
free refreshments are
served.
As if all of the above
weren't enough, the
Society will have Rib and
Roast on Nov. 3 at Pan-
ther Woods in Fort
Pierce.
"Roastees" include
Mike Brown of National
City Bank, Anthony
Westbury of the 'Fort
PierceTribune" and Jon
Ward, FPRA director.
Tickets are $75; enter-
tainment will be provid-
ed by The Fort Pierce Jazz
& Blues Society Ensem-
ble.

Marsala, gourmet soup, special


dessert make a great meal


Hard to believe,
summer vacation is
over.
This week's column will
include veal. In the past, I
have discussed the plight
of baby male cows and
space does not allow
repetition.
It is your choice to use
veal or chicken. Start
dinner with a gourmet
soup and end with an old-
fashioned dessert.
Enjoy. See you next
week.

Ideas and comparisons:
Marsala wine is a bit
pricey and tastes very
much like sherry, which is
cheaper and can be used
in my recipes.
To your health: Pudding
is and always has been fat-
free. It can be made with
any kind of milk, even soy.
Preparing cutlets

Prepare veal cutlets by


scoring (making shallow
criss-cross cuts) the meat
on both sides. Sandwich
cutlets between waxed
paper and pound with a
mallet or any heavy
utensil. Doing this will
break up any tough fibers
and help the cutlets to
keep their shape while
cooking.
NOTE: Veal can be
tough at times because of
the low-fat content.
Sprinkle with a little meat
tenderizer before pound-
ing.
To prepare chicken
cutlets, purchase bone-
less chicken breasts.
Separate lobes. Now
"butterfly" the breast. Lay
the breast on a cutting
board and, holding your
hand ontop, carefully cut
the breast in half, hori-
zontally, cutting to, not
through, the other side.
Slash the seam carefully
with knife to get it to lie
flat. Score and pound as
directed for veal.

Even soccer moms have to be com-
puter savvy these days.
Mako Soccer Club has adopted a
new registration system this season
and all of it is done qnline.
The club had seen over a 20 per-
cent increase in players in just a year
and it looks to be still growing.
Mako head of coaches Al Socielli
got together with head registrar Russ
Walker and Web master Guy Hoff-
man, and the three decided the club
Seeded some way of cutting down
the paperwork of a club that serves
over 1,000 kids on the Treasure
Coast.
The result is a fully functional
online database for the entire club.
"The fact that we ended up with


we couldn't track all the players,"
Hoffman said. "It's much more than a
registration system. It's a sports
management system."
The program allows parents to sign
their children up online instead of
having to send a check by mail or
physically go to a certain place at a
certain time. Once their child is reg-
istered, they are in the system forev-
er. This way parents, players and
coaches can track each athlete's
progress through the organization.
'As a coach it takes all the paper-
work out of your hands. It puts all the
responsibility on the kids and par-
ents," said Mako coach and parent
Rob Ayres. "The initial time, yeah,
you got to go on a computer and you
can lose things. You're gonna run
into basic computer problems. But I


a half-hour."
The program also keeps track of all
stats, scores and player profiles
which can be sent directly to the
Florida Youth Soccer Association.
Each team will also have its own
page where players can communi-
cate with each other and coaches.
Each coach is given a list of email
address so he can send out practice
schedules, tournament updates and
training tips at the click of a button.
"There is no other club in the area
that has. anything like -it," Socielli
said. "What this will allow us to do is
a better than excellent job of manag-
ing our club. When we get a chance
to improve our club, we do."

'Big Al' is returning to the boxing ring


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
Port St. Lucie native Al
Gazdacko is back in the
ring.
"Big Al" will be fighting
Ernest Peppers in Gasto-
nia, N.C. on Saturday, Aug.


25 in his second profes-
sional fight.
Gazdacko debuted as a
professional fighter April
20, losing to Leonard Col-
lier by unanimous deci-
sion.
Gazdacko had a success-
ful amateur career before


he retired five years ago. He
seriously considered call-
ing it quits again after the
loss to Collier, but decided
to dedicate himself to box-
ing even more instead.
"I'm sitting down more
on my punches and not
being so much of an ama-


teur boxer anymore," Gaz-
dacko said. "I'm going to be
more of a professional
fighter."
Gazdacko will fight local-
ly on Saturday, Oct. 6 at
Indian River Community
College. A challenger has
yet to be determined.

YOUR SUMMER FUN

VERO BEACH PALM CITY






Port St. Lucie High
School graduate Rick
Ankiel makes a catch
in right field for the St.
Louis Cardinals.
Ankiel, who cracked
the Major Leagues as
a hard-throwing
pitcher, has remade
himself into a power-
hitting outfielder in
just two years.

BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
So here's the fairy tale.
A prep superstar reach-
es the major leagues by
age 19 and becomes one
of the most promising
young pitchers in the
game.
On top of that, he's a
lefty with a 97 mile per
hour fastball.
But just a year after
ringing up Major League
power hitters, that same
kid can't find his catcher's
glove. In fact, he can't
throw within five feet of it.
After spending the next
six years in and out of the
minor leagues, including
a year he didn't play at all,


the kid with the golden
arm retools his game and
returns to the majors with
a golden bat.
The fairy tale,' which is
too unbelievable for most
Hollywood execs, is not
only true, but started
right here on the Treasure,
Coast.
Rick Ankiel, born in Fort
Pierce and a member of
Port St. Lucie High School
class of 1997, dazzled
scouts as a tall southpaw
with a rocket for an arm
his senior year. Later that
summer he would sign a
contract with the St. Louis
Cardinals and his future
was seemingly set.
But by now, we all know
the story.


He won 11 games in his
rookie season in 2000 for
St. Louis. He was even
tagged as the starting
pitcher of Game 1 of the
National League Division-
al Series against Atlanta
that post season.
And in the third inning
of that game,, his arm and
mind got off the same
page. He threw nine wild
pitches in just four
innings and was never the
same pitcher again.
"Nobody knows what
happened," said former
Port St. Lucie baseball,
coach, and current St.
Lucie West Centennial

Protecting yourself from


lightning with 'Strike Alert'


&Ot/aW1 fieadt l i est,


ow l ead ae IYeset.,





flometown iNews


T ankfully, our rainy
season appears to be
J upon us. Unfortu-
nately, our usual rainstorms
bring deadly lightning
along with that much-
needed rain.
Florida happens to be the
No. 1 state for lightning
strikes. What makes that
fact even more scary is that
most of our thunderstorms
seem to appear out of,
nowhere, with little advance
warning. It can be a golfer's
worst nightmare.
Imagine being stuck as
far away from the safety of
the clubhouse as possible
when one of these storms
suddenly pops up. Since
most courses don't have a
lightning warning system,
it's easy to find yourself
trapped on the golf course
as violent weather rolls in.
Now you can protect
yourself by carrying a
simple, effective personal
lightning detector called
Strike Alert.
Developed by an engi-
neer who had a close call
with lightning, the Strike
Alert is used by outdoor
enthusiasts of all kinds,
from joggers to cyclists to
golfers and walkers to,
baseball and soccer teams.
Pretty much anyone who
enjoys time outdoors I
should consider one of
these.
Lightning is the electrical
discharge between clouds
or between a cloud and the
ground. The thunder we
hear after the lightning is
actually the sound wave
produced by the explosive
heating of the air in the
lightning channel during
the return.
The average lightning
strike is 6 miles long and
carries a voltage of 100
million to 1 billion volts.
Lightning reaches a tem-
perature of 50,000 degrees
Fahrenheit, or four times


that of the sun.
The National Lightning
Safety Group states that
lightning is the most
dangerous and most
frequently encountered
weather hazard and is the
No..1 cause of storm-
related deaths in this
nation. FEMA estimates
that 200 people are killed
and nearly 1,000 severely
injured by lightning every
year in the U.S.
Florida sits atop that list
with the most deaths and
injuries.
According to national
statistics, 20 percent of all,
lightning victims die from
the strike. Seventy percent
of survivors will suffer long-
term effects including
memory loss, chronic
numbness, muscle spasms,
depression, hearing and
sleep loss.
The Strike Alert is about
tle size of a personal
beeper and operates on two
AAA batteries. The batteries
will last up to 100 hours,
allowing you simple
protection and warning for
many trips to the course or
while exercising.
According to the compa-
ny, the unit can detect
lightning as far away as 40
miles, warning you of
potential storms well
before they arrives on the
'horizon.
The Strike Alert was first
developed in 2000 by
Outdoor Technologies
based in Colorado Springs.
The latest unit is water-
prooft nd works in all
outdoor temperature
ranges. The detector is
housed in a small casing
that clips neatly onto a belt
loop, pocket, golf bag or
backpack.
When a lightning strike is
detected, Strike Alert will
emit an audible alarm'and
light the appropriate LED
indicating the distance of

the strike. The alarm and
corresponding LED light
illuminate accordingly at
lightning strikes of 20 to 40
miles, 12 to 24 miles, 6 to 12
miles and 6 miles or less.
Strike Alert uses a trend-
of-strike distances over the
last 5 minutes to determine
if a storm is approaching,
stationary or departing
your area.
Since we can only see
weather approaching from,
about 6 to 8 miles away,
imagine how valuable it is
to know what's coming
when it's four to six times
that far offWith the
average lightning strike
being 6 miles long, you may
not even see it coming
before it hits you.
Strike Alert retails for
$79.99 and is available in
many cellular stores in our
area. Some golf stores have
begun to carry the units as
well.
For additional informa-
tion or to find a dealer near
you, visit
www.strikealert.com or call
them at (719) 598-8300.

Ankiel
From page C3


Messina. "I can't even
guess. They got the best
coaches in the world up
-there and if they don't
know, I don't know."
But that doesn't matter
now.
Not after he re-tooled
his entire game to
become an outfielder.
Or after he came back
from a knee injury that
kept him sidelined the
entire 2006 season.
And especially not after
he walked into the batter's
box at Busch Stadium
Aug. 9 and crushed a ball
to the right-field stands.
In his first weekend
back in the majors, and
first as a position player,
Ankiel batted .375 with
three home runs and six
RBI in four games.
The transformation
from pitcher to hitter was
complete.
"Watch, he's gonna have
a great night tonight,"
Messinia said when he
heard Ankiel would be in
the Cardinals' starting
lineup for the first time
since 2004. "I never
expected him to hit a
home run."
He .even changed his
jersey number from 66 to
24, the number he wore as
a member of the Port St.
Lucie Jaguars.
"I've umpired Richard
since he was 13 years old.
When he came up that
was his thing, he was a
hitter. Not necessarily
with power but he could
hit," said Port St. Lucie
High School Athletic
Director Danny Nines-
tine. "He was always, in
my mind, hitting first,
pitching second."
On most little league
and high school teams,
it's not uncommon for the
best pitcher to also be the
best hitter, and fielder.
But for that same sce-
nario to carry over to the


Major Leagues is hardly a
normal occurrence.
Only 12 players have hit
their first home run as a
pitcher and later do it as a
position player, according
to research done by the
Cardinals. Of that group,
the only recognizable
names are Smoky Joe
Wood and Babe Ruth.
What Ankiel has done is
far from Ruthian, remark-
able nonetheless.
More remarkable might
be that the Cardinals have
stuck by Ankiel and sup-
ported him throughout
his career. From an
impressionable 19-year-
old rookie phenom, to a
wild-armed pitcher, and
now to a mid-season call
up in outfield, St. Louis
never wavered in its com-
mitment and develop-
ment of the second round
draft pick.
"I think it's about
Richard the person, not
about Richard and
moner," Nizestien said.
"Sometimes they say we
have so much money
invested in him (we have
to keep trying). I think
they invested in Richard
the person."
The future will only tell
how effective Ankiel will
actually be as an everyday
player for St. Louis. At
week's end, he was still
hovering around .300
with a .296 batting aver-
age, re-establishing him-
self as a member of the
Cardinals.
"I think there's no
telling what I could have
done as a pitcher," Ankiel
told the St. Louis Post-Dis-
patch. "But the goal now
is to make a career out of
being an outfielder. That
was' the goal (when I
retired from pitching in
2005). That's still the goal
today. It fits my personali-
ty better being able to
play every day."

INTERNET SAVY
The Internet can be a wonderful resource for kids. As we know
internet access can also pose hazards to your children. Although there
are online tools that you can use to control your child's access to
adult sites, no option is going to guarantee that your child will be
kept away from 100% of the risks on the Internet.

Some Basic Safety Tips: U
CO
Become computer literate. And keep the computer in a common area
where you can watch and monitor your child.

Forbid your child from entering private chat rooms; block them with
safety features provided by your Internet service provider or with spe-
cial filtering software. Be aware that posting messages to chat rooms
reveals your child's mail address.,

Take your child seriously if he or she reports an uncomfortable
online exchange. Forward copies of obscene or threatening messages
to your Internet service provider. Reinforce the following: Never
trade personal photographs in the mail or scanned photographs over
the Internet. Never reveal personal information, such as address,
phone number, or school name or location.
Use only a screen name. Never agree to
meet anyone from a chat room in person.
Always tell a parent about any communica-
tion or conversation that was scary. If your
child -has a new "friend," insist on being
"introduced" online to that friend.

WHEN TO EVACUATE

Joe Zelenak


A lot of people ask me about how to decide
if you should evacuate or not. There are many
scenarios and not everyone is right for every
individual. As a general rule, if you have a cate-
gory 1 storm coming with no reasonable
chance of it intensifying, it is usually safe to
remain in the area. However, if you live in a
mobile home, a low-lying area or on the beach,
you will need to evacuate if you are advised to
do so. In a category 2 or 3 storm, most areas
east of US 1 'vill be evacuation zones. If you
live in these areas and are told to leave, do so.
Always evacuate from mobile homes and the
beach areas along with all low-lying flood
plains. If you live in an unsafe or wood frame
house built prior to 1992, you may want toi
consider evacuating also. Remember, anything
above a category 2 storm is going to do lots of
damage. You should not stay unless your home
is safe. If you have a category 4 or 5 coming or
even if the possibility exists for a.cat 4 or cat
5...you should consider leaving the area.
Remember, the most important thing is to pro-
tect yourself and your family. The decision to
leave must be made early enough to avoid traf-
fic jams and to ensure you will arrive at your
chosen destination before the storm hits.

Anyone that has ridden out a. bad storm
knows how scary they can be. Extreme fear can
cause potential health risks and if you feel you
may be affected, you should make every
attempt to leave the area or find a location to
ride out the storm where you would feel safe.
The majority of deaths and injuries in our
past storms have been from people leaving their
homes either during the storm or immediately
after. Flying debris can be lethal. After a storm
there will be downed power lines, downed trees
and many roads will be flooded or blocked.
Cities may impose curfews after a storm. This
is for your protection as well as our emergency
services operations.
If you are returning from an evacuation area
DO NOT RETURN UNTIL YOU KNOW
IT IS SAFE TO DO SO. Also, you many want
to bring supplies back with you. Water and
food will be in short supply. Get current storm
information from www.hometownweather.net
