PORT ST. LUCIE The
* grant award could not
have come at a better time.
Less than two weeks
after Port St. Lucie police
charged 16 individuals in a
suspected gang after a raid
on a Southwest Kentwood
Road home, City Council
announced a grant award
of $73,000 for gang resist-
ance education.
The grant, awarded by
the Bureau of Justice Assis-
tance to the Port St. Lucie
Police Department, is
intended to create a
school-based curriculum
taught by law enforcement
officers.
The program, known as
Gang Resistance Educa-
tion and Training, or
G.R.E.A.T., is intended to
prevent delinquency, vio-
lence and gang member-

Mortgage foreclosures see sharp increase


500 percent
increase in
defaulted
loans bogging
down courts
BY SAMANTHA JOSEPH
Staff writer
The number of foreclo-
sures in St. Lucie County
grew five-fold in the last
year, court statistics show.
Lenders filed about 2,500
mortgage foreclosures
against local homeowners-
this year, from January to
August. That's about 2,000
more than the nearly 500"
suits filed in the same peri-
od last year.
"Has there been an
increase? You have no idea,"

PORT ST. LUCIE Port
St. Lucie police are treating
as an isolated incident a
home break-in where, the
criminals were dressed in
what appeared to be
police uniforms.
It was shortly after mid-
night on Aug. 28 when Jose
Ruiz, 40, heard a knock on
the door of his home in the
600 block of Southwest
Curtis Street in Port St.
Lucie.
He looked outside and
spotted white CrownVic-
toria or Chevrolet, Caprice
with the word "Police" on
the side of the car. The
vehicle had red and blue
lights on top that were
flashing.
Through the glass in the
front door, Mr. Ruiz could
see two large black men,
wearing police uniforms,
who identified themselves
as Port St. Lucie police-
men.
According to police
spokesman Robert Vega,
Mr. Rui2 said the men
were also wearing micro-
phones on their shoulders,
gun belts and badges.
Mr. Ruiz then opened
his front door and both
men rushed in, immedi-w
ately pulling masks over
their faces.
0 See ROBBERS, A8


said Angela Caquias, a
deputy clerk in the circuit
court's .civil department,
who handles foreclosures.
"I'm surprised that there are
still people living in this
county."
On the court's .calendar
are several days in Septem-
ber when more than 25
properties are set to go on
sale each day, she added.
One culprit behind the
high number of foreclo-
sures: Adjustable interest
rates that have since adjust-
ed, sometimes tripling
mortgage payments, noted
Ed Fry, St. Lucie County
clerk of circuit court.
Desperate homeowners
and buyers interested in
purchasing repossessed
homes have turned to the
courts for help.
"We've been getting more


than a lot of calls from
homeowners," Mr. Fry said.
"We've been getting a lot of
people who are just walking
in."
"I've never seen anything
like this in all the years that
I've been here," said Ms.
Caquias, who's worked in
the courts for a decade.
Clerks are facing a back-
log of more than 100 cases
that they haven't entered
into the court database, she
added.
"It's taking a lot longer to
put it into the system
because we simply don't
have the manpower. We
have triple and quadruple.
the amount of work, but the
same number of people,"
she explained.
Circuit Judge Ben Bryan,
who handles mortgage
foreclosures, set aside a


LET THE GAMES


week each month on his
calendar to hear these
cases. During that week, the
udge hears several hun-
dred cases, legal assistant
Anne Nelson said.
"We are in a crisis in St.
-ticie County. The court is
clogged with foreclosure
cases," stated John Griffin,
former president of the
county's bar association.
Court employees have
been referring callers to
local attorneys for legal
advice. But with many of
the inquirers facing foreclo-
sures because of an inabili-
ty to make mortgage 'pay-
ments, the chances of
affording legal services are
slim.
That's why Mr. Fry sug-
gested that the Bar Associa-
tion step in to help.
The group is hosting two


free legal clinics, set for
Sept. 12 and 29 at the Indi-
an River Community Col-
lege. The: sessions will
explain the legal rights of
homeowners facing foreclo-
sures,' and present strate-
gies for responding, Mr.
Griffin said.
"This, I think, will be a
tremendous help," Mr. Fry
said.
. In attendance will be
Florida Rural Legal Services,
which assists people whose
incomes fall below the
poverty line to gain legal
assistance.
"The basic idea is we
want, to give people an
overview of the foreclosure
process, how it works, what
they're likely to encounter
and the potential defenses

PROFESSIONAL VS. HOME CARE
Q: How do I know if a dental problem requires professional help?
A: The answer is this: when you notice something out of the ordinary in your
mouth, go to a dentist. There are plenty of good things you can do at home like
brushing and flossing regularly. Examine the inside of your mouth and the
external area around your mouth for any changes. But self-diagnosis is not
recommended for any health problem. Infections around wisdom teeth require
prompt attention from your dentist. They may not have to be removed if there's .
adequate room for them to erupt.
Any sudden gum bleeding, any growth or change in texture of the skin inside the mouth or on the
lips, or any ulcers or white patches that develop should send you to your dentist. They may be the
sign of a serious localized or systemic problem. Gum inflammation, for instance, may respond to
an improved regimen of brushing, flossing and gum massage. But if it doesn't within a few days, m
see your dentist. Always err on the side of caution when it comes to your oral health.

REVIEW

Women with children in tow
charged with thefts at Wal-Mart
Wal-Mart personnel summoned the police about
shoplifting that was in progress on Aug. 27 at approxi-
mately 8 p.m.
When a police officer arrived at the store, located at
10855 South U.S. Highway 1 and contacted Wal-Mart's
loss prevention agent, he was shown the video of three
females shoplifting as a team.
Two of the women had their children with them. The
children were 1-year-old and an infant less than 3-
weeks-old.
The group was arrested as they tried to exit the store
with merchandise totaling $578.48, including baby
supplies, infant clothing, shoes and ladies undergar-
ments.
Charged with felony grand theft were. Emmanuella
Desrivieres, Valerie Canegitta and Rose Deseriveres, all
of Port St. Lucie.

City Council makes it easier
to request street lighting
In a 3-2 vote at the Port St. Lucie City Council meet-
ing on Aug. 27, the process of requesting street lighting
in neighborhoods was made a bit easier,
The vote eliminates the need for petitions containing
the signatures of a majority of homeowners in a given
neighborhood.
Instead, a single homeowner may now apply to the
city clerk for street lighting. The clerk then sets bound-
aries, or a district, for the area and sends the request to
city council. Council, in turn, will schedule a mail-in
election for those who own property in that district.
A simple majority is then needed for the district to
receive the street lighting. Each property is allowed one
vote.
If approved, the street lighting is expected to cost
each property owner approximately $20 per year.

County accepts grant applications from
schools for driver education classes
St. Lucie County Commissioners began accepting
grant applications from private and public schools for
driver education safety programs.
The county awards these grants from proceeds of the
$3 fee it attaches to each civil traffic penalty. The fee is a
provision of the Dori Slosberg Driver Education Safety
Act. '
The money goes to schools through a competitive
mini-grant process, county officials said.
Administrators consider applications based on sever-
al criteria, including a provision that the driving pro-
grams require students to spend at least 30 percent of
the course "behind the wheel," gaining practical expe-
rience.
The county limits awards to $50,000.
To apply, go to the "Hot Topics' section of the coun-
ty's Web site, at www.stlucieco.gov.
Applications can be mailed to the Office of Manage-
ment and Budget, St. Lucie County Board of County
Commissioners, 2300 Virginia Ave., Fort Pierce, FL

I buy lots of jewelry from
the public. To do so I must
fill out a police report when
purchasing jewelry from
the public. We must ask
.whose ring (or whatever
they are selling) it is. We do
this to determine whether it
is their property to sell or if
they have authorization to
sell it. And I frequently
hear something that dis-
turbs me. One of them is
from ladies that have been
engaged but have since
broken off the engage-
ment. They have given the
engagement ring back. The
second thing I hear is that
the man brings the ring in
to sell and he tells me he
"took" it back.
Well here's the real deal.
If you receive an engage-
ment ring, it's yours. You
can wear it, sell it, or do
anything you want with it.
It's yours. If he "takes" it
back without your authori-
zation, it is still yours and
you can take whatever
legal means you like to get
it back. Therefore if he tries
to sell it to me or any other
jeweler it is not his to sell.
This is straight from the
detective that is our repre-
sentative from the sheriff's
office.

A man who spent ,five
months in prison, but later
had the charges against him
dismissed, has filed a $10
million-civil rights violation
suit against Fort Pierce and
county authorities.
Named as defendants are
St. Lucie. County Sheriff Ken
Mascara, Fort Pierce Police
Chief Eugene Savage,' offi-
cers Joseph Coleman,.
Tyrone Campbell arid Jesse
Streeter.
Michael Hicks' attorneys
at Rubin & Rubin filed the
suit on his behalf in the Fort
Pierce Federal Court on Aug.
29.
They claim that shoddy
police work in a murder
investigation caused
irreparable damage to the
then 16-year-old Mr. Hicks.
Police arrested Mr. Hicks
in'connection with the Aug.
19, 2005, murder of Julio
P axtore, 32, who was robbed
and beaten to death in Fort
Pierce.
Mr. Paxtore rode his bicy-
cle to a Valero gas station to


use the pay phone on the
night he was killed. Two wit-
nesses later called 911 to
report that they'd seen a
group of four or five black
males chasing and beating
the man, according to police
reports and the lawsuit.
Fort Pierce police found
Mr. Paxtore's body at about
9:40 that night.
On Jan. 27, 2006, the state
attorney's office dismissed
all charges against Mr.
Hicks.
The civil suit claims that
the police violated Mr.
Hicks' constitutional rights
under the Fourth and Four-
teenth Amendments of the
Constitution by "conducting
an investigation in a reck-
less manner with callous
indifference to Mike's
health, safety and civil
rights."
Law enforcement officials
declined to comment.
Adam Fetterman, general
counsel for the Sheriff's,
Office, said that as a matter
of policy, the agency's repre-
sentatives, do not comment
on pending litigation.
The sheriff's attorney
received a statutory notice
of intent to sue from Rubin
& Rubin, but has not
entered any talks, Mr. Fet-
terman said.
The Fort Pierce Police
Department also. does not
comment on pending litiga-
tion, said Audria Moore, its.
public information officer.
But Mr. Hicks and his
lawyers are demanding an
explanation.
They say investigators
charged in on him while he
was babysitting his nephew,
and arrested him without
providing a reason.
The police then violated
the minor's civil rights by
questioning him without his
parents' permission,
claimed attorney Guy
Rubin. .
Police also repeatedly
denied the teen the oppor-
tunity to talk to, his parents,
Michael and Janice Hicks,
who are co-plaintiffs in the
suit, he added.
The parents say they
fought to reduce the,
$175,000 bail set: for their

rejected their requests. .

DENTISTRY OF ST. LUCIE


lawyers describe as a night-
marish experience that
resulted in several assaults
in prison, and has since led
Mr. Hicks to seek trauma
counseling.
Especially grievous is that
police arrested Mr. Hicks,
who is white, despite eye-
witness reports that Mr. Pax-
tore's attackers were black,
Mr. Rubin said. The murder
was reportedly racially
motivated, he said.
"They didn't have facts or
any credible evidence," Mr.
Rubin said of investigators.
*Charged in the murder
case were Cordealria
Collins, Edward Harris, Jerry
Pierre all of whom have
been convicted and face life
sentences and Kindwend
Taylor.
"Hicks...knew the
assailants, who visited him
afterward," his attorney
acknowledged. "Fort Pierce
Police seemed to conclude
'guilt by association,' ignor-
ing evidence otherwise."
What's more, Mr. Rubin'
said, police disregarded
repeated attempts by one of
the accused men to exoner-
ate Mr. Hicks.
'Accountability must be at
the forefront of law enforce-
ment in order for the public
and citizens to feel safe," Mr.
Rubin said. "The Hicks fami-
ly found themselves in a sit-
uation where police and jail-
ers ignored court orders and
the civil rights of regular cit-
izens," he said. "This lawsuit
will hold them account-
able."
Mr. Hicks' case is not the
first time that Rubin &
Rubin has brought suit
against a police department.
Earlier this year, the firm
secured a $2 million jury
verdict against the Jefferson
County Police Department
in Tallahassee for a Palm
Beach family, Mr. Rubin
said.
The $10 million judgment
sought in the Hicks' case is
realistic, he said.
"That's what we think is
fair for a family having their
life destroyed for no reason.
(Mr .Hicks) didn't put him-
self in the wrong place at the
wrong,,time...," ,he said, "It
was just shoddy police
work."

VIEWPOINT


FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2007


Got something to say?

Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at

(772) 465-5504
or e-mail news@hometownnewsol.com.
Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous
statements. Statements of fact will be checked for
accuracy.


Post office problems

This is in response to the rant about trouble with the
Hobe Sound Post Office.
Kudos to that person for speaking out about the ongoing
issues with his mail.
Unfortunately, the problem also involves the Palm City
Post Office as well.
For a number of years we have been receiving damaged
and torn open mail and magazine subscriptions blamed on.
automated equipment, the wrong mail being delivered,
mail not being delivered, or our mail being delivered to
someone else's postal box.
Note. Some people are responsible enough to put the
wrongly delivered mail back in the postal box to be picked
up, or they might even bring it to you. Others will just throw
it out, or keep it themselves.
Sometimes there is no mail at all, which should make you
suspicious since junk mail comes daily.
We have seen the carrier skip our postal box, then come
down the other side of the street, turn around and deliver
the mail. He has also backed up the street to the box.
We, as well as our neighbors, have called the post office
numerous times only to be told that these carriers are on
probation.
The problems continue because the Postmaster General
told them speed is the top priority. Speed means nothing
without efficiency.
We place outgoing mail of any importance in a U.S. postal
box at the post office or shopping center, and send parcels
via private carriers to ensure proper delivery.
If this is happening to you, call the post office and let
them know every time there is a problem, or contact the
Postmaster General in Washington by phone.
If you write he might not get your letter.

More on the post office

I was reading in the Hometown News Rants and Raves
about the problems with the Hobe Sound Post Office. I'm
sure you are probably getting loads of e-mails and phone
calls about this issue.
My problem is that we cannot seem to have mail delivered
to us, we cannot seem to have our bills delivered to our
office, we cannot even seem to have them pick our mail up
from. the mailboxes; ,, ,,
Things are not being mailed out the way they should.
When we go down to the post office we' are being told that
everything that is happening is our fault.
I would like an explanation on how our mail not being
picked up when it is placed in the box at 8 a.m., and is still
in the box at 6 p.m. is our fault.
I have gone down to the Hobe Sound Post Office myself,
along with four other co-workers, but nobody there would
talk to us.
We have called and made reports on their 1-888-ask-usps
hotline, but we can't seem, to get an answer from them
either.

Don't block the intersection

I live in the of Cypress Lakes subdivision off of Matheson
Avenue in Palm City.
We are,having difficult time, in fact an impossible time,
getting out of our complex between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m. and
in the afternoon because of the parents blocking the exits
going out of our subdivision.
It took us one half-hour to get in the other day.
Also, emergency vehicles cannot get in or out.
The school buses sit right in front of our complex and they
do not allow us to get through.
Something needs to be done about this before someone
get hurts.
There is a sign that says, "Do not block intersection," but it
is still being blocked.

Stop persecuting teens

I'm Xrriting On behalf of the teens in our community who,"
because, of a few bas apples, are being systematically
banned from one of the very few places they-can hang out
arnd socialize.
I have been told by more than one deputy sheriff that the
older folks are scared and intimidated by the teens because
they dress in black and have tattoos, colored, etc.
Every generation feels the next generation is too loose and
they dress inappropriately, and they scare close-minded
older folks. '
They are teenagers. It's their purpose in the food chain.
Are the older folks who complain the same people who
write the newspaper weekly to whine about paying taxes in
this. county because they already pay them wherever their
summer home is?
Let me get this straight.
You don't want to contribute to this community, and pos-

sibly better places 'for teens to socialize, yet you want to dic-
tate that they shouldn't be allowed in one of the few places
they do have?
Monday through Friday is not enough for you?
Also, are you the same folks who cause car accidents and
cause my insurance rate to rise, and then cry about the
unfairness of mandatory testing of elderly drivers?
Shame on you.
You'd think you would not persecute others when you
know how it feels to be persecuted.
The teens will keep on patronizing the mall in Melbourne,
which is mindful of the power of its young consumers.

My family has put their bodies
where the mouths are

I would like to respond to the rant about putting your
body where your mouth is.
I am a proud non-veteran, Republican supporter of the
President Bush, and as you say, his war.
I am much too old to be in the service, but I do have a son,
and a grandson in the service, so don't tell me to put my
body where my mouth is.
My son has served for two tours in Iraq, and said he wants
to continue because our work is not done yet.
He feels very confident that it is coming to an end. He tells
me quite often that if we didn't have our troops over there,
the terrorists would run rampant.
I am so very proud of my son and grandson, and all of the
other soldiers that are protecting all of us, even people like
you sitting in your easy chair.
As far as I see it, my family has put their body where there
mouth is.
You should be thanking God every day that they, along
with the other proud Americans, do so.

Homosexuality is not normal

This is a response to the rant "Homosexuals are as moral,
normal as heterosexuals."
The ranter states, "God made some people heterosexual,
some homosexual and some bisexual, and this cannot be
changed. He also said, gays are as moral and normal as the
rest of the population.
Keeping it simple, God doesn't make homosexuals.
Homosexuals are morally, emotionally and sexually con-
fused people. They are deviants, odd, strange, unnatural,
queer, not normal, because they choose to live an immoral
and unnatural lifestyle.
God calls the homosexual act an abomination, Lev. 18:22,
20:13, and the penalty was death.
The Hebrew word used here is Towebah, meaning: some-
thing morally disgusting, loathsome, detestable, and abhor-
rence.
The Oxford Universal Dictionary defines it as, 1) the feel-
ing of disgust and hatred, loathing, 2) a state of exciting dis-
gust, pollution, and 3' a degrading vice.
So, what part of abomination do you not understand?
Logic and nature dictates that if homosexuality were a
normallifestyle,.they would be able to procreate in the nat-
ural fashion.
Homosexuals cannot procreate, they can only recruit.
God createdAdam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.
It is only through the idiocy of political correctness run
amok and liberal tolerance that this lifestyle is considered
normal or moral.
It is hypocritical of liberal political correctness to expect
everyone to be tolerant of homosexuals.
To have an opposing opinion of homosexuals is to risk
being labeled a bigot, .or being charged with a hate crime.
It is a pity that Christians or conservatives are not given
the same consideration.
Remember, it is not our opinion that homosexuality is
wrong; It is God's law.
I remember when the word gay meant happy.
Back then, Ike was in the White House,'and gays were in
the closet.
Today, what used to slink down the back alleys of Sodom
and Gomorrah now struts down main street USA. Even Dis-


ney World has a gay pride day. It is truly a sad day for moral-
ity.
Remember, God loves you, but, he hates your sinful
lifestyle, and it is totally unacceptable to Him..
. Thankfully, God instituted a little thing called individual
moral reform, i.e. repentance.
Repent ye therefore and be converted, that your sins may
be blotted out," Acts 3:19.
Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old
things are passed away, II Cor. 5:17.
So,, change is possible if one truly wants to and repents.
Homosexuals only need a good dose of salvation to change.
So, I'll be praying for all of you.
May God Bless America.

Humane euthanasia

The humane euthanasia law passed in Florida in 1980
requires that shelters use the most humane drugs to eutha-
nize animals.
It is sodium pento barbitol.
Unfortunately, veterinarians aren't required to follow this
humane euthanasia law, and they can euthanize by cruel
means such as injecting a paralyzing agent that slowly suf-
focates an animal.
I will be contacting consumer services and the Florida
Board of Veterinarians once again to request that veterinari-
ans must furnish a statement to pet owners before any
euthanasia.
This statement would include the product that the veteri-
narian will use to euthanize a pet.
If you agree that pets should not be forced to suffer a cruel
death when they must be euthanized, I hope you will be
sure to use the humane society's services for humane
euthanasia of animals.
Under the law they must use the most humane method,
'and that is the sodium pento barbitol.
People can write a letter to the state of Florida and make a
consumer complaint if they are aware of abusive euthanasia
Sby any veterinarian.
I hope they will do it.
I've had to do it in the past, several times.
The veterinarian must respond to the state in his own
handwriting'as to -what he used, and answer any questions
you may have about the euthanasia.

Take down the birdfeeder

I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch and
filled it with birdseed.
Within a week we had lots of birds taking advantage of the
continuous flow of free and easily accessible food.
But then the birds started building nests in the boards of
the patio, above the table, and next to the barbecue.
Then came the poop. It was everywhere. It was on the
patio tile, the chairs, the table, and everywhere.
Then some of the birds turned mean and aggressive.
They would dive bomb me and try to peck me even
though I had fed them out of my own pocket.
Many of the birds were boisterous and loud.
They sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed at all
hours of the day and night, and demanded that I fill it when
it got low on food.
After a while, I couldn't even sit on imy own back porch
anymore;
I took down the bird feeder, and in three days the birds
were gone..
I cleaned up their mess and took down the many nests
they had built all over the patio.
'Soon, the back yard was like -it used to be, quiet, serene
'and no birds demanding rights to a free meal.
Now let's see.
Our government gives out free food, subsidized housing,
free medical care, free education and allows anyone born
here to be an automatic citizen.
Then the illegals came by the tens of thousands.
Suddenly our taxes went up to pay for free services. Small
apartments are housing five families. You have to wait six

hours to be seen by an emergency room
doctor. Your child's second grade class is
behind other schools because over half of
the class doesn't speak English. Corn flakes
now come in bilingual boxes. I have to press
"one" to hear my bank talk to me in English,
and people waving flags other than Old
Glory are squawking and screaming in the
streets, demanding more rights and free lib-
erties.
Maybe it's time for the government to take
down the bird feeder.

Immigrant take-over

I was reading the Aug. 24 edition of Home-
town News, and a couple of people were
speaking of this illegal immigrant take-over
that our corrupt, politically correct govern-
ment and the other idiots have thrown us
into.
I would ask everyone, even the ones with
their heads stuck up their butts, just to stop
for a minute and think about a couple of
things.
First, whatever the number of illegal Mexi-
cans is, 12 to 20 million, a very large number
of illegal Mexican couples will have an aver-
age of five children per family here in the
USA.
Secondly, all the emphasis and/or atten-
tion presently is on trying to control the
boarders of Arizona, California or whatever
the states are out northwest of here.
People you had better start thinking about
South Florida. Why in the world are we not
trying to control the illegal surge of immi-
grants from Cuba?
Do you people not understand who else is
coming over with them? Don't you under-
stand that Castro has no problem support-
ing/sending the terrorists from other coun-
tries here? They look alike and can learn, or
already speak the Cuban language very easi-
ly.
Guess what, Miami is probably the largest
terror cell anywhere in this country.
Talk about people that have no respect for
our culture, be it our language, flag, or her-
itage. Cubans pretty much run, own, do
. whatever they want, and get what they
want. They rape the oceans, run drugs, etc.
In closing I will say this.
If America were running this country, I
wouldn't be writing this letter, for whatever
that's worth. Those people would be back in
their country yesterday, along with the so-
called Americans that support handing over
America and cowering down to them.
The place that you are standing right now
reading this is called the United States of
America, not Mexico or Puerto Rico, and it
sure ain't Cuba.
Spanish, Latin, or whatever they classify
themselves as, English is the language spo-
ken here.
I would love to be the president: of the
* United States of America, man, that would
be great.


In one year this country would be where it
needs to be, a government run by Ameri-
cans.
The old government would no longer be
with us, they would be hung by the neck for
treason against the men and women of the
USA and her military.

FEMA

So much for privacy. Last week I received a
phone call, saW an article in a newspaper,
and got a letter from FEMA. Now my
address, along with many others, will be list-
ed in the newspapers as a FEMA recipient.
What about honesty, integrity and serving
the general public fairly?
My hose, which was to be my primary
residence, was damaged during two hurri-
canes.
FEMA gave me money, and then asked for
it back.
My storage bin, which contained my life-
time of possessions, was destroyed, and I
sustained losses over $25,000 with no FEMA
assistance.
Instead of listing the addresses of people
who receive money from FEMA, why isn't
the media looking closely at FEMA and how
it operates?
Look at how they gave many people in
South Florida money for generators when
the storm didn't even hit their area.

Hatred of
homosexuals leads to killing

A couple of months ago; there was an arti-
cle regarding gays. I want to comment on
that article.
First of all, I am heterosexual and married,
with two awesome sons.
However, I have many gay friends.
There are so many shallow-minded
human beings out there (who) can't or sim-
ply don't want to understand what it is like
to be different, regardless of what the differ-
ences may be. It tan be in sexuality, it can
be in deformity, mental problems, autism,
religion, race, etc.
We are so quick to judge.
Let me tell you a story about my friend
(who) was gay. It took him years before he
was able to "come out" or tell anyone. Years
ago, it was simply unacceptable. He even
had a girl (who) went with him to family
functions as though she was a girlfriend.
My friend was one of the most caring,
kind human beings I have ever known. He
was funny, with a very dry sense of humor.
My friend is now dead because of his sexu-
ality. It was a horrible death that took place
in Texas. He met this guy, who followed him
home, took a knife and stabbed him in the
head. He took my friend's body from his
own home and two days later buried him in
a shallow grave on 50 acres of land.
The (man) was caught immediately
because he used my friend's credit cards. He


had his wallet, his car keys and bloody
socks, muddy boots and a shovel with blood
on it.
As he sat in his air-conditioned cell, me,
my friends, along with Texas Equu Search
and San Antonio K-9 unit, searched for my
friend's body for almost a week.
We searched four cities where the credit
cards had been used before finally finding
him in a shallow grave, partially charred and
buried under animal remains.
I watched this man's family his father,
mother, sister, niece, nephew, and poor little
86-year-old grandmother sit at the com-
mand center day after day in hopes we
Would find their loved one.
He was like a brother to me and had so
many friends. He made a difference in the
lives of those who knew and loved him. He
made people smile and laugh., He took care
of his family like no one I have ever known.
Yet, because of his sexuality he (died) at
the hands of this monster.
After we found him, this (man who was in
jail) said, "Ya'll are smarter than I thought
you were."
On. July 12, he (spoke to) a Texas news-
paper, admitting to stabbing my friend,
because he was doing God's work. He
claims to be Elijah and is carrying out the
work of the Lord.
After reading several comments, some
against, some understanding, regarding
the topics of homosexuality, I could not
believe what I read. I read comments stat-
ing they don't deserve rights; they don't
deserve this or that. It reminded me of
growing up when blacks were condemned
for being black.
Why can't everyone just mind their own
business? No one is asking you to be gay;
no one really cares. ,
We are all human beings. Everyone in
this world deserves to live (his or her) life
the way they choose to live it.
We live in a wonderful place, "The Home
of the Free and the Brave." Free means
having the freedom to live life the way
you want to. It takes a very brave person
these days to admit (his or her) sexuality.
My friend was brave.
I can only hope -this story will change
the minds of those who simply don't want
to understand. What if that was your fam-
ily member or friend (who) had been so
brutally murdered because of (his or her)
beliefs?

Shame on nosey newspapers

1.2 million (2.2 million listed at
www.fema.gov) Americans received letters
from FEMA informing them that their per-
sonal information is being released to
newspapers' that requested that informa-
tion concerning assistance during past
hurricanes.
Although FEMA apparently is apologiz-
ing, this is another example of identity
theft in our opinion. -
Does information and (Freedom of Infor-
mation Act) have no boundaries, no limits?
Are the rules bent for some and not oth-
ers?


This crossing of lines is causing plenty
of temperaments to boil. What happened -
to confidentiality contracts and the
decency of informed consent in this
country?
OK, so FEMA was court ordered to
release this information, but when indi-
viduals filled out FEMA forms, they
signed a contract of confidentiality and
promise of privacy of their information.
It was agreed that these millions of citi-
zen' names and social security numbers
would not be released to the requesting
parties and only addresses given, but any-
one with any simple intelligence can
match the addresses to their residences.
This is insanity. This was private infor-
mation, and there should be a privacy
counter-suit filed against all involved and
on behalf of all the citizens hurt by this
lack of common decency.
However, what happens if these people
whose personal and very private informa-
tion has been compromised band togeth-
er and boycott these companies? Would
they still be able to afford to intrude upon
everyday people and their.privacy?
o Shame on the nosey!

Editor's note: The week ofAug. 13, FEMA
sent letters to all people who had received
money due to hurricane damage in 2004
that their names, addresses and Social
Security numbers were to be given to three
Florida newspapers: Fort Myers News-
Press, South Florida Sun-Sentinel 'and
Pensacola News-Journal. This was not
true.,
The newspapers had submitted Freedom
of Information Act requests from FEMA
requesting information, about claims.
When the agency refused, the newspapers
went to court.
"We sued FEMA because of the agency's
wasteful and fraudulent disbursement of
millions of dollars in disaster funds and
its steadfast refusal to open records to pub-
lic scrutiny," state Edarl Maucker, editor of
the Sun-Sentinal.
In early August, the courts compelled
FEMA to release the information, which
did not include names and social security
numbers as it claimed in the' nearly 1.2
million letters it sent to FEMA recipients.
One of the reasons the Sun-Sentinel cited
in its request for information was that "In
2004, the (newspaper) disclosed that
FEMA gave away more than $30 million in
assistance to residents in- Miami-Dade
County for a hurricane that made landfall
about a hundred miles north of Miami. As
(the paper) expanded (its) investigation,
reporters found similar patterns of fraud
in other'disasters nationwide."
One of the roles of the news media is to
report on -government and its operations.
The writers of the U.S. Constitution
wanted a free press to report on wrongdo-
ings and inefficiencies should the three
branches of government fail to do so.
Since the money being given to hurricane
victims came from a government, taxpay-
ers deserve to be told if this money was
spent wisely.

At least one of the men was
brandishing a handgun, and
pistol-whipped Mr. Ruiz. At
this point, a third man also
entered the home.
The men then tied up Mr.
Ruiz and his wife, Victoria
Chavez, 29, with duct tape.
The couple's 1-year old
daughter was asleep in the
home at the time.
."They were demanding,
'where is the money, where
is the, money?'" said Mr.
Vega.
The men eventually found
a large sum of cash in the
home and left, but not
before removing the uni-
formed shirts they were
wearing.
At press time, police had
no suspects in the case.
"We have no idea where
they got (the items of police
clothing) from," said Mr.
Vega.
"Mr. Ruiz even heard
squawking coming from the
radios on their shoulders.


Everything seemed authentic
and it seemed like the real
deal," he said.
Mr. Vega said in his seven
years on the police force, this
is the first time this type of
incident has occurred.
"Fortunately, this has been
an isolated incident. And
there is no indication at this
point that this was drug-relat-
ed," he said.
Because the police believe
this was an isolated incident,
they feel the public should be
aware but not alarmed.
"The public should be
somewhat cautious," said Mr.
Vega.
"If the police knock at your
door, you can always dial 911
and the dispatcher can tell
you if the police are there. The
dispatchers know where our
police officers are at all times,"
he said.
Anyone with information is
asked to contact Treasure
Coast Crime Stoppers at (800)
273-TIPS.

Fighting against computer-speak


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This
O ne of the most
annoying aspects of
computers is their
uncanny, ability to assume
you know what they're
talking about.
Don't computer pro--
grammers realize that most
end-users are just regular
folks without any formal
computer training? So why
do they write programs to
pop up technical ques-
tions? Most people have no
clue what they are talking
about.
Sure, sure, I know, most
dialogue boxes are self
explanatory. Most people
don't need help under-
standing: "Are you sure you
want to close this pro-
gram?"
What I'm talking about
are those cryptic messages
that assume an average
end-user has a degree in
computer science. It's
questions like those that
can cause a person to
waste a lot of time trying to
figure out what to do
because they are afraid if
they answer wrong, they
could screw something up.
I've been there myself.
All I can say is, thank God
for Google!
A quick Google search
will often reveal informa-
tion from other people
with the same questions
and how they solved their
issues.
Recently, I received an e-
mail from a reader who .
had some questions, and I
thought I would answer
them here.
Her questions stem from
the fact that whoever
"wrote" Windows assumes
that everyone knows what.
they are talking about
when, in reality, it's ques-
tions like these that can
bring the average user to a
halt.
Ani'a'. Jan in Mel-
bourne Beach writes:
"Sean, I have an 'older'
2004 HP Laptop dvlOlOus.
It locked up recently, and I
had a tech friend come
over and run my disk
cleanup. It helped a great
deal. It works well for the
60 GB hard drive and 512
MB memory it has. I now
use disk cleanup regularly.
However, I have some
questions. Maybe you
can write an article on the
disk cleanup function?
"One, I can still free up
more space on (the com-
puter) if I 'compress old
files' (more than) 2,059,538
kb. But I don't want to lose
any old documents s'ill on
the hard drive in 'My
Documents.' What does
'compress old files' mean?
Has it already compressed
them? What files.will
it delete? (It's) hard to
understand the explana-
tion.
"And two, in the other
options, I can also 'delete
Windows components
and programs not used'
and 'delete to the most
recent restore point.'
Sounds scary. Maybe
others would benefit from
such an article if they have
older, slower PCs, as I do."
Hi Jan, thanks for
writing. I understand your
hesitation when faced with
messages like these and
you are right, they are kind
of scary.
I have a couple of rules I
use that can keep a user
out of trouble without the
stress of wondering if it's
the right decision.
Basically, I don't com-
press files (unless i am
really strapped for space)
and I usually recommend
that people avoid the
temptation to delete.
Both actions can lead to
lost data and hait's some-
thing we all want to avoid,
right?
The next thing I have
trouble with is letting
Windows "decide" what an
old file is or what is not in


use. The idea of letting
Windows decide what's old
or what I don't use is what
really scares me. I don't
have any faith in my
operating system making
that kind of decision.
As for the last item, I
would also caution against
using "delete restore." I've
seen more than one
machine "resurrected" by
rolling back to a restore
point that wasn't the most
recent and (in those cases)
had they deleted all but the
most recent, we would
have been forced to reload
Windows from scratch.


So, Jan, that's my advice
to you. I would avoid
compressing files and
would also avoid letting
Windows decide what files
are safe to delete.
The hard drive space that
these things use is a small
price to pay for the peace
of mind knowing that
Windows didn't just "nuke"
something that you are
going to need later.

Keep an eye on skin condition to prevent cancers


I recently went to the
dermatologist
because I had two
skin growths that had
gotten a little irritated.
While I had my annual
dermatology check in
April, I was told to keep an
eye on various moles.


These two had started to
bother me a bit and bleed
a little, so I thought it was
a good idea to check them
out.
The doctor removed
them and had them
biopsied. I received a call a
week later that they were
both benign.

Here is some information
on the most common
types of skin cancers and
what to look for.
The information comes
from the American Acade-
my of Dermatology.
* Actinic Keratoses are
pre-cancerous lesions
caused by long-term
exposure to sunlight. They
are most commonly found
on the face, lips, ears,
neck, scalp, forearms and
hands the areas most
exposed to sunlight. They
are often scaly, rough and
discolored.
If untreated, they can
progress to more serious
types of skin cancer, so
any suspicious growth
should be looked at by a
dermatologist.
You should examine
those areas and have
someone look at your
scalp and the back of your
neck if you can't see them.
Actinic keratoses usually


ET


are treated by freezing, or
may require topical
chemotherapy creams,
laser surgery or photody-
namic therapy.
The earlier they are
found, the better. Use of
sunscreen can help
prevent their formation
even after sun damage has
occurred.

* Basal cell carcinoma is
the most common type of
skin cancer and appears
frequently on the head,
neck and hands and other
body parts as small, fleshy
bumps, or nodules or red
patches.
It may take years for one
to grow and, if untreated,
may begin to bleed, crust
over, heal and begin to
grow again.
While these rarely
spread, they can extend
below the skin to nerves
and bone and cause local.

removed and biopsied and
treatment will depend on a
variety of factors.

* Squamous cell carcino-
ma is the next most
common form of skin
cancer. It is typically found
on the rim of the ear, the
face, lips and mouth. It
may also appear as a
bump or red, scaly patch.
SCC can develop into
large masses and become
invasive and spread to
other parts of the body.
Even locally, if untreated,
SCC can destroy the
tissue surrounding the
tumor and cause the loss
of the nose or an ear. It is
important to get early
treatment, when the cure
rate is 95 percent.
Most treatment options
are in-office procedures
with local anesthesia,
which is minor compared
to the disfigurement that
can result from ignoring it.

Malignant melanoma
is the most deadly form of
skin cancer. Every year an
estimated 7,700 people die
from it.
The American Academy
of Dermatology reports
that the death rate is
declining because people
are seeking treatment at
an earlier stage, although
the incidence of the
disease continues to rise,
especially in young adults
and the elderly.,
Melanoma may appear
suddenly in or near a mole
or other dark spot and any
changes in a mole should
be examined by a derma-
tologist. See a dermatolo-


gist immediately of you
have a growth with the
following characteristics.
* Asymmetrical: one side
doesn't match the other in
size, shape, color or
thickness
* Border irregularity:
The edges are ragged,
scalloped or poorly
defined
* Color: The pigmenta-
tion is not uniform and
different shades are
present
* Diameter: Most
melanomas are usually
greater then 6 mm, which
is the size of a pencil
eraser, but they can be
smaller in the early stages.
That's why any mole that is
different from the others
or changes should be
examined, even if it is
small.
Of course, prevention is
the best plan.
Use a broad-spectrum
sunscreen of at least SPF
15 that protects against
UVA and UVB rays. Re-
apply it often and use it on
your lips, ears and other
exposed areas, even on
cloudy days.
Avoid tanning salons and
tanning beds.
There is no safe way to
tan, except with artificial
tanning products.
If you're going to be out
in the sun, wear a hat and
sunglasses, preferably the
wrap-around type that
protect the side of your
face, as well. Pretend
you're a movie star; they
wear sunglasses all the
time! -

skin cancer, visit the

Dermatology/Es Web site

A fat by any name is still a fat; learn to


lighten up on macaroni and cheese


Hello, smart shop-
pers. Hope you had
a good week.
People, I think we have a
problem! Wasn't it great
when, as of Jan. 1, 2006,
the FDA announced that
all foods must tell you if a
product contains trans-
fats. Do you actually know
what trans-fats are?
When an oil is turned
into a solid, it is done so
by adding hydrogen. This
creates trans-fats, a
proven carcinogen.
Margarine is an example
of a hydrogenated fat.
One problem is that if a
product has only a half-
sgram of trans-fat, it
doesn't have to be listed
on the label. Most pack-
aged products have more.
than one serving, so by
eating it all you're getting
more than the safe
amount.
Here's the biggest
problem. For some people,
removing trans-fats means
there are no fats left in the
product. Trans-fats are
bad, but other fats are still
fats and contain more
than 100 calories per
tablespoon.
More than 65 percent of
Americans are obese.
Could this be a contribut-
ing factor?
Please read the labels on
all products you buy and
pay attention to the
calories as well as the fats.

* Recipe update: In a
past column, the recipe for
Mystery Squash soup had
an omission. After blend-
ing soup, heat, but do not
boil before serving.

* Ideas and compar-
isons: Trans-fats aren't the
only fats that need your
attention.

* To your health: By
using sugar-free gelatin or
pudding in place of the
original, many desserts
can be made without
carbohydrates.

BAKED MACARONI
AND CHEESE
SERVES 3 TO 4
REGULAR AND LOW-FAT
A national favorite,
macaroni and cheese is
truly the bad guy when it
comes to high-fat, high-
cholesterol food.
Substitute Kraft grated,
fat-free cheddar cheese
and low-fat grated mild
cheddar cheese to equal 2
cups.
Break up the Swiss, use
skim milk or evaporated
skim milk for the milk or
plain soy milk and a
healthy butter substitute
such as Smart Balance and
you have a delicious low-
fat macaroni and cheese.
8 ounces elbow macaroni
2 cups grated American
cheese or mild cheddar
2 slices Swiss cheese
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black
pepper
2 cups milk

Butter
Cook macaroni accord-
ing to package directions,
until almost done. Drain,
place in a flat 1-1/2 quart
baking dish, adding a little
butter, so the pasta doesn't
stick together.
Meanwhile, mix flour
with salt and pepper. Toss
with cheeses to coat
evenly. Add to drained
macaroni and mix. Add


milk; do not stir.
Dot with butter and
sprinkle with paprika.

vegetable, substitute another.

times. Yet I dreamt of a
place I kept missing, Puerto
Maldonado, Peru's gateway
to the rainforest. That is
until 2005, when my dream
came true.
With my group headed
home, I boarded a plane
from Cusco to Puerto
Maldonado by myself. It
was a short, scenic flight
over the Andes, into the
gentle Madre de Dios and
Tambopapta river valleys.
Here the rivers snake
through the lush rainforest
of the Amazon basin, as far
as the eye can see.
Cusco's cool temperatures
hadn't prepared me for the
heat and humidity of the
rainforest, though. Peeling
off layers upon arrival, I was
met by the Reserva Ama-
zonica Lodge bus and .
driven through town to the
river. There I boarded a
long, thatched boat and
settled in for a 45-minute
ride downstream.
The river was wide,
beautiful and mesmerizing.
I knew I was going to be,
happy here. Once we
arrived at the lodge, I knew I
was going to be even
happier.
It was gorgeous, in an eco-
friendly sort of way. Lunch
was waiting in the stunning
dining room with rough-
hewn tables and chairs, all
arranged around a huge,
floor to ceiJing tree trunk.
Sunlight streamed in from
all directions, lighting up
Peruvian tapestries and
creating a.magical air.
Lunch was delicious and
afterward I headed to my
cabana for a rest. Complete
with porch, hammocks,
comfy beds, mosquito
netting, bathroom and
shower, it was simple, but
charming.
Later, I met my personal
guide, Eric. We started out
by exploring the flora and
fauna nearby. After an hour,
we found ourselves at the
lodge's canopy walk.
Climbing up the observa-
tion tower, I was soon high
above the trees. When I
stepped onto the canopy
walk, bouncing with each
step I took, I saw-the
rainforest below as few get
to see it.
And to think, we could
lose all this.

SUSAN DREW
Travel columnist

At dusk we returned to the
lodge, which was now lit with
hundreds of glowing
kerosene lamps. After
cleaning up, I headed to the
dining room, made even
more magical by music and
candlelight. Dinner was
superb, with fine wines,
interesting local dishes and
good conversation.
Eventually, I walked back to
my cabana, read a bit in the
hammock and fell asleep
surrounded by the sweet
sounds of the rainforest.
The birds woke me at
dawn, so I grabbed my
camera and took photos of
the sun rising over the river.
Then it was time for ,.
breakfast, followed by a boat
ride to Tambopata National
Reserve. Once there, Eric and
I walked through the rainfor-
est, now brimming with.
butterflies, to Lake San-
doval. Here we took a canoe
ride around the lake,
checking out the bird and
plant life along the shore. It
was a treat to just sit and
take photos, while Eric did
all the paddling. Eventually,
it was time to head back -
another magical moment in
the rainforest.
After lunch, we sailed to
Monkey Island. Walking to
the dock, we passed a row of
ugly, rubber boots, I
remember thinking how
glad I was we didn't have to
wear them, since we'd had
no rain. In retrospect, I
should have picked up a
pair.
As our boat approached.
the island, there was too
much mud to dock in the
usual place. The problem
was we had to walk over the
same muddy area instead.
In no time, I was slipping
and sliding until I'finally
fell. I was completely
covered in mud and my
camera was, too. My filthy
clothes went right in the


4


garbage, but at least my
camera survived.
Regardless, it was quite an
experience and worth seeing
all the monkeys.
Next, we visited a farmer to
learn about his life along the
river. If I'd had more time, I
would have enjoyed visiting a
local village, too.
Once back in our boat, Eric
thought I'd like seeing all the
cayman (an alligator-like
reptile) along the riverbanks.
At dusk, he easily spotted
them by their glowing eyes
and hoisted them onboard.
After hearing my shrieks, he
knew he was wrong. No
cayman, alligators or
crocodiles for me, thanks.
As we approached the
lodge, I realized I had only
one more evening in para-

dise. I was definitely leaving
far too soon. I'd just gotten
into the rhythm of the
rainforest and, unfortunately,
it was time to leave. My wish
was for more time.
As I prepare to return to
Peru this fall and the rainfor-

be granted.

Adding a waterfall or garden pond can be easy


If you ever thought of
putting in a garden
waterfall or pond, but
thought it was too compli-
cated or difficult, think
again.
If you go to almost any
garden center, they will
have an entire section
devoted to building a
garden pond. In years gone
by, building a garden pond
required pouring concrete
and using sealers, and the
cost was out of reach for
many people.
Today, it's a totally
different story.
Flexible and solid liners
and forms are readily
available and all you need to
do is plan, dig and pop in
the mold. The ease in
installation has significantly
lowered the cost of con-
struction and has made it
easier than ever for the
average homeowner to do it
himself.
Garden ponds are added


JOE ZELENAK
Garden Nook

to a landscape for many
different purposes.
Some people build one for
the sole purpose of creating
a fountain with spraying or
moving water.
Many people would like to
create both a decorative
pond and a place for live
fish. .
What you plan to do with


your new fountain will have
a big impact on planning its
location.
For instance, if you want
to have a fishpond, you will
need to locate the pond
where it has some protec-
tion from the sun.
If your only purpose is to
create a fountain or water-
fall, the location in relation
to the sun will not be as
critical.
Also, if you plan on using
your pond to stock fish, you
will need at least 10 inches
of depth or more. Having a
pond that is sufficient in
depth is extremely impor-
tant, because a pond that is
too shallow will get exces-
sively warm for your fish,
especially during the
summer months.
Be sure to locate your
pond in an area where you
will be able to run power to
it. I would recommend
hiring a qualified electrician
for this task.


UNDEFEATED CHAMPS


Once you have done the
planning and digging, you
can put all the parts
together.
Now the fun begins.
Bear in mind there is no
right or wrong way to
landscape a garden pond or
fountain.
You can start by placing
garden stones, crushed
stone, river rocks, or even
lava rock along the edge of
your pond to hide the liner.
Around the pond perime-
ter you can plant ground


covers, annuals, native
shrubs or grasses such as
Liriope.
You can also keep it
natural by planting native'
Florida shrubs that are
common in your neighbor-
hood.
Even if you do not want to
use a conventional pond
liner, your imagination is
limitless. You can use an old
bathtub, an old waterbed
liner, large galvanized
washtubs or even large
sealed plant containers.


In fact, if you would like to
share a unique idea with
other readers, you can e-
mail me at the address
below. I will share the ideas
in future articles.

Q. Why does my child grind his/her teeth at night?
A. Parents are often concerned about the nocturnal grinding
of teeth (bruxism).-Often, the first indication is the noise
created by the child grinding on their teeth during sleep. Or,
the parent may notice wear (teeth getting.shorter) to the
dentition. One theory as to the cause involves a psychological
component. Stress due to a new environment, divorce, changes
at school; etc. can influence a child to grind their teeth.
Another theory relates to pressure in the inner ear at night. If
there are pressure changes, like in an airplane during take-off
and landing when people are che ming gum. etc. to equalize
pressure) the child will grind by moving his jaw to relieve this
pressure.
The majority of cases of pediatric bruxism do not require any
treatment. If excessive wear of the teeth (attrition) is present,
then a mouth guard (night guard) may be indicated. The
negatives to a mouth guard are the possibility of choking if the
appliance becomes dislodged during sleep and it -na\ interfere
with growth of the jaws. The positiveis obvious b,' pr.rnng
wear to the primary dentition. r"
The good news is most children outgrow bruxism. The
grinding gets less between the ages 6-9 and children tend to
stop grinding between ages 9-12. If you suspect bruxism,
discuss this with your pediatrician or pediatric ,
dentist. C
AtArdalah Pediatric Dentistry'we strive to provide our patients with a state
of the art dental facility. We aim to provide treatment in a fun and relaxing
environment for both the patient and the parent, To that extent, we offer several

Archaeologists have
discovered the stone house
of the disciple Peter in
Capernaum.
Capernaum stood on the
northwestern shore of the
Sea of Galilee. Jesus used
this large fishing village as
his resting place and center
of operations.
The ruins of Peter's house
are located a few hundred
feet from the site of an
ancient synagogue where
Jesus often taught.
Peter's house was built in
the first century BC, at the
erd of the Hellenistic
period; a time of Greek
colonization over lands
conquered byAlexander
the Great.
One hundred and thirty-
fopr inscriptions were
discovered on the remains
of the wall plaster in Peter's
hquse. One hundred and
one of these inscriptions
were written in Greek.
There were also 18
written in Syriac, which is a
form of Aramaic, one of the
languages spoken by Jesus.
In addition, there were,15
Hebrew inscriptions.
But the researchers were
astonished most of all by
the inscriptions that were
prayers, thanking God for
"our brother Peter," who
opened his home to his
brothlier, and sisters in
Christ, meaning his fellow-
believers.,
Invocations or prayers to
"the Lord Jesus Christ"
were among the inscrip-
tions.
Bible scholars believe
that Jesus lived at Peter's
house while staying in
Capernaum.
Decorative motifs were
found on wall plaster.
Among the subjects are
floral crosses, pomegran-

ates, figs, trifolium, which
are three-leaf plants or
clover, and stylized flowers.
There were also geometric
designs such as circles and
squares.
The roof of Peter's house
was made of a mixture of
mud and straw, sustained
by wooden bars.
Outside of the home, a
staircase was discovered
that led to the roof.
Historians believe that
the primary purpose of the
Staircase was to reach the
roof to do repairs. New
mud was required to
prepare the roof for the
beginning of the rainy
season each year.
Now let's look at another
phenomenal find. The Sea
of Galilee's water level was
dramatically lowered in the
winter of 1986 due to a
severe drought.
During this time, when
large areas of shoreline
were no longer covered
with water an amazing
discovery was made.
Two local fishermen were
strolling along the muddy
shores of the Sea of Galilee,
when they found the
remains of a 2,000 year-old
fishing boat.
The ancient boat was
located along the north-
west shore of the sea, near
the city of Tiberias.
The boat, which could be
used with sails or oars, had
room for four oarsmen, a
helmsman, and about ten
passengers. It represents
the largest boat type used
at that time, on the Sea of
Galilee.
In addition to being a
fishing vessel, it could also
have also been used as a
transport vessel, to carry
people and supplies across
the lake.
The boat would have
used a single, square sail,
and may have had'a
wor king life of from 20 to
30 years.
Archaeologists found
evidence of repairs that

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

were made to the ancient
relic, so it could have been
in service even longer.
Experts in marine
biology examined the boat,
noting that the planks of
the hull were fastened with
a mortise joint.
A mortise joint is a
connection between two
pieces of timber in which a
tenon, or projection is
inserted into an opening in
the other piece of timber to
form a secure joint.
After the antiquity of the
boat was confirmed, and
dated from the first
century BC, it was moved
to a specially constructed
conservation pool to be
studied and preserved.
Incredibly, 17 pieces of
pottery, including a
complete lamp and
cooking pot were found in
the boat.
Carbon-14 dating of the
pottery resulted in dates
ranging from 120 BC to 40
AD.
This boat was a first-
century sailing vessel,
discovered at the very
same place, the Sea of
Galilee, where Jesus and
his disciples sailed.
Historians believe that
this boat could be the one
that Jesus and his disciples
used to sail on the Sea of
Galilee.

Avenue D Boys Choir builds


character and community


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Dr. Earl and Mary Hendricks, co-
executive directors of the Avenue D
Boys' Choir in Fort Pierce have a
passion for music, for education
and for building character.
Dr. Earl, who has a doctorate in
education and/is an assistant prin-
cipal at Southport Middle School,
and Mary, who is the heart and soul
of the organization, as well as the
accompanist, provide musical
training and life lessons in disci-
pline and perseverance to boys
who might otherwise not succeed
in the school system,
Dr. Hendricks, who is from
Jamaica, was principal of a board-


ing school for boys there and start-
ed a chorus that won national
competitions.
In 2004, the two decided to form
a choir in Fort Pierce and named it
after a street in the city to show
support for the community and the
positive things that were happen-
ing there.
The goal was not only to teach
the boys singing, but to instill core
values. Every rehearsal begins with
homework help, prayer, discussion
and mentoring.
"Some of the boys might have
problems," Mary Hendricks said.
"We give them a focus. Ninety-
eight percent of the boys tell me
'Mrs. Hendricks, I can't sing.' We
work with them. We don't turn


anyone away. Oftentimes, they are
timid and shy. A brotherhood
forms and the boys embrace the
newcomers. It's not .only the boys,
though. We couldn't do it with out
the support of the parents."
The group has about 35 mem-
bers, with 26 active during band
and football season. Choir mem-
bers, range in age from. six to 18.
The drummer, Vincent Phillips, is
20, and a charter member of the
group and his younger brother
sings with them.
They practice throughout the
year and give concerts and recitals
all over the Treasure Coast. They
perform at churches, civic organi-

you to the


finish, I was as terrified as
if I really had a chance of
getting a part.
Before the auditions, I
sat in on the first produc-
tion meeting with the
director, Jami Dolan, tech-
nical director, Darren
Cripps, prop mistress
Susan Emley, costumer
Carlos Toro, stage manager
Victoria Goulet and assis-
tant stage manager Celso
Rodrigues.
The director, Jami
Dolan, gave her vision for
the show. It all starts with
the auditions, but they
aren't necessarily the last
word.
"I don't cast from audi-
tions," she said.
"If I don't get what I
want, I make phone calls.
Cinderella and the Prince
have to be the stereotypi-
cal pair for the little girls in
the, audience. Cinderella
and the Prince have to
have great voices and Cin-
derella has to be blonde; if
she's not, she has to be
willing to bleach or lighten
her hair or wear a wig.
There has to be a connec-
tion between the Fairy
Godmother and Cinderel-
la. The Fairy Godmother
has to be a great improvi-
sational artist because she
breaks the fourth wall and
talks directly to the audi-
ence.
The Godmother and the
stepsisters can be men.
The townspeople 'can be
eclectic, all sizes and
heights. I don't know what
I'm looking for but I'll
know it when.I see it."
I told her I was nervous
about auditioning for the
first time, singing in front'
of an audience.
"I like to hear that peo-
ple are nervous," she said.
"It means they care. If
they're too cool, you won-
der, 'do you have your
heart in it?'"
Darren Cripps, the tech-
rlical designer, spoke
about ambitious plans for
the set designs for a show
that includes a grand stair-
case and ballroom as well
as a horse-drawn coach.-
"This is where it all
begins," he sait.
"With a budget, you have
to think long-term, for the
next show. Even though
it's .on a budget, you're try-
ing to get as good a show
as you can get. We want a
lot of magic in the show
and I've got two, or three
surprises planned. We
want it to be magical
because it's just before
Christmas."
Mr. Cripps, who's
worked with Shiloh for
"seven-odd" years, brings
an impressive background
to the task.
He began his career
doing stage lighting for
Pink Floyd and worked for
the British Broadcasting
System and the Royal
National Theatre, where he
worked more than 550
shows with performers
including Ian McKellen,
Hugh Grant, Anthony
Hopkins and Judi Dench.
He loves the work he's
doing now.

"I absolutely love giving
the technical support," he
said.
"When you pay to come
to see a show, we want to
give you the best show. It's
important that local peo-
ple who support the Lyric
and the Sunrise have an
opportunity to see local
talent. This is where it
starts for a lot of people,
especially the kids."
The audition was broken
down by age,awith the kids
auditioning in the after-
noon. I went home to
practice some more and
think about the folly of
auditioning after only five
singing lessons.
I returned at five o'clock;
people were gathering and
greeting each other the
way you do when a new
school year begins and
you' re seeing each other
again after several months.
Most of them have
worked together many
times and there's a real"
sense of family. A few peo-
ple, like me, were new.
Jeannette Mazzella

serves on Shiloh's board of
directors and was also
there to audition for a part
in the ensemble. She does
it in spite of butterflies she
has each time.
"I did it years ago when I
was young and in school,"
she said.
"I love performing and
being up on the stage. We
cater to everyone. If a role
is age-appropriate, you
have a shot. I don't want to
be Cinderella. I'd love to be
in the ensemble. It's a
chance to sing and dance
with other people and
have a good time."
Ms. Mazzella, who
teaches Jazzercise in Palm
City, said that she has an
audition strategy that
includes deciding which
role she'd like to have or
whether she'd prefer to be
in the ensemble.
"I try to come early and
look around to see who
else is there," she said.
"You're saying 'oh, my
goodness,' she's here, I'll
never get the part.' My
stomach is in knots. I just

pretend I'm (performing)
on stage. I have butterflies
each and every time"
I had prepared the song
"Wouldn't it be Lovely"
from "My Fair Lady"
because it was the song I
'had practiced the most
and was the one I thought
was the least likely to
cause my voice to crack or
go too far off-key.
I brought my sheet
music; there was no way I
was going to try to remem-
ber the words, even though
I could sing them in my
sleep.
I also brought the CD
with the recoding of the
song that I'd practiced
with. I.didn't dare sing a
cappella (without music).
When I got there, Betty
Saunders, the musical
director and accompanist,,
suggested I sing with her
playing the piano.
There I was, standing in
front of the director and
her team and all the other


performers, w

the tempo of the music.
I just started singing.
When it was over, there
was applause, as there was
for everyone, and they said
I did well. I didn't make a
fool of myself and I was so
glad I'd taken a risk and so
glad it was over.
I auditioned for "Cin-
derella" to get a better feel
for what it's like to be
involved with a perform-
ance.
I already, know that it is
an enormous commit-
ment. There are a lot of
scenes with dancing and
there will be very long ses-
sions learning ballroom
routines.
All performers have to
have dance shoes; I didn't
even know what they were,
and I certainly don't own
any. I now know whatit's
like to put yourself out
there for an audition, and
it is scary.

I have much more

the show through from
start to finish, many work-

I'll continue to follow the
show through to opening
night. Let's hope it's not a
bumpy ride!

zations, private parties,
nursing homes, hospitals,
and, Mrs. Hendricks says,
"anywhere we're invited."
A recent highlight was
performing at Tradition
Field before the Mets
opening game of spring
training.
The group will perform
in the documentary about
Zora Neale Hurston being
made by filmmaker Jose
Garafalo and the St. Lucie
Cultural Affairs Council.
While working with the
boys is a labor of love, it is
also an expensive under-
taking and the group wel-
comes contributions.
"Every -rehearsal ends
with a meal because
they're growing boys,"
Mary Hendricks says. "We
recently had three per-
formances in one day. We
fed them breakfast and
lunch."
Right now, the group's


most pressing need is for a
rehearsal space, and they
are looking for an organi-
zation or individual to
offer them a permanent
home in which to practice.
For the last eight months,
they have been operating
out of a variety of tempo-
rary homes.
Dr. and Mrs. Hendricks,
who hope some day to
expand the group into a
multi-cultural alternative
private school focused on
academics, know that
someone will step up to
the plate.
"Yes, we have big
dreams, Mary Hendricks
said.
"We think God has even
bigger plans for us, but we
can't do it alone."

The mojarra frita (fried talapia) is one of the most popular seafood dishes at the newest
Pueblo Viejo in the Ocean Breeze Plaza in Jensen Beach.


Pueblo Viejo: Providing


some of the best of Jalisco


By DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
JENSEN BEACH If your
idea of Mexican food is tacos,
burritos and tostadas, then let
Puebl6 Viejo's newest locale in
Jensen Beach introduce you
tb a whole new dining and
cultural experience.
A Treasure Coast institution
since the first restaurant
opened on Bayshore Drive in
Port St. Lucie in 1998, Pueblo
Viejo's fourth and largest
establishment opened in
Jensen Beach last May.
Walking into the establish-
ment is like stepping into a
piece of Jalisco, the Mexican
state that's home to the colo-
nial city of Guadalajara. All the
ddcor here is crafted to resem-
ble the interior courtyard of a
typical Guadalajara home, but
it's the colorful handcrafted
wooden chairs that truly set
the festive theme.
This is also the first of the
chain to boast a full bar, so
patrons can choose from a
larger variety of beers, cock-
tails and wines. Happy hour is
,celebrated every day from 3 -
6 p.m., and after 9 p.m., draft
beers and well drinks are at
two-for-one prices.
To really get into a fiesta
mood, order a sassy sweet-
and-sour margarita; or, if you
prefer, choose from six differ-
ent Mexican bottled beers
(several domestic brands are


also available). Then, for an
appetizer, go for the queso
flameado (melted cheese dip
with a little kick) or' the
seafood quesadilla.
The dinner menu, however,
is where you'll realize that Tex-
Mex food didn't originate in
Jalisco. You just may be sur-
prised at the incredible variety
of true Mexican cuisine. Beef-
lovers will be delighted with
the traditionally cut T-bone
and NewYork strip steaks, and
if you've never had a char-
grilled skirt steak (came asada
and steak ranchero) you're in
for a tasty surprise.
There are eight different
chicken dishes to choose
from, including polo a la
crema (boneless chicken
sauteed with mushrooms and
onions in an exquisite sour
cream sauce).
If you're in the mood for
seafood, you'll find 11 differ-
ent delicious creations from
which to choose, ranging
from a crabmeat enchilada to
shrimp fajitas and mojarra
frita (whole fried red tilapia
that's succulently sweet and
delicious). Or for a truly
authentic Mexican favorite,
try the cerdo con nopales, a
savory pork dish prepared
with cactus leaves.
If you're still having a tough
time deciding what to order,
Pueblo Viejo's got you cov-
ered: You can try three differ-
ent entrees with the tres ami-


gos plate (marinated and
charcoal-grilled chicken
breast, garlic shrimp and
char-grilled skirt steak).
Portions here are huge, and
all entrees are served with
refried beans, pico de gallo
and some of the fluffiest Mexi-
can rice you'll ever stick a fork
into.
For a sweet finish, you can
choose from traditional
sopapillas (fried tortilla chips
topped with honey and dust-
ed with cinnamon), deep-
fried ice cream or a light and
creamy flan, among others.
The Jensen Beach
PuebloViejo also boasts a
separate dining room for up
to 90 guests that can be
reserved for private parties.
,The restaurant is located at
1840 N.E. Jensen Beach Blvd.
in the Ocean Breeze Plaza.
For more information, call
772-225-9183 or visit the Web
site at
"www.puebloviej orestau-
rante.com.
You can also enjoy the
same exquisite creations at
the other locations of Pueblo
Viejo. These include Fort
Pierce (1301 S. U.S. 1); two in
Port St. Lucie (291 S.WPort St.
Lucie Blvd. at the comer of
Bayshore Boulevard, and
1788 S.E. Port St. Lucie Blvd.in
the Morningside Shoppes);
and a new restaurant set to
open soon in Okeechobee.

YOUTHACTIVITIES & SPORTS


Centennial dominates


Central in football opener


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer

St. Lucie West Centennial
running back Len Harris
stood at midfield smiling
after his Eagles defeated
Fort Pierce Central, 42-10,
at South County Regional
Stadium Aug. 30.
His 176.rushing yards and
touchdown helped avenge
a loss to the Cobras' in last
year's finale, but Harris was
more excited to get home to
talk to his mother Jackie
about the game.
Jackie attended Fort
Pierce Central, and now her
son had the house bragging
rights.
"We've been trying to
beat them my last two
years;" Len said. "My mom,
aunt, pretty much all my
family went to that school.
So it's bragging rights for
me."
Centennial (1-0) domi-
nated the game from start
to finish, riding a running
game that amassed over
300 yards to victory.
Senior Willie Gardenhire
scored on his first carry on
2007, a 25-yard burst
through the middle of the
Cobra's defense. Garden-
hire would score again in
the first half but left for the
hospital early in the third
quarter for unspecified rea-


sons. He finished with 94
yards on six carries and two
touchdowns.
With Gardenhire out,
O'Neal turned to Harris and
fullback Josh Tabora to
carry the load for the
Eagles.
"Everybody was doing
their job," Harris said.
"We're trying to get some
things going and come
together as a family."
But after storming out a
quick 14-0 lead, Centenni-
al's penalty demons from a
year ago resurfaced and
threatened to bury them
again.
With 4:15 left in the first
quarter, the Eagles forced
Central (0-1) to punt for a
third consecutive series.
With the ball on the Eagles
19-yard line, quarterback
Dustin Bergstol fumbled,
Central recovered and the
Cobras had possession
inside the 10.
But Centennial's defense
came up big holding the
Cobras to a field goal.
Three plays later, another
Centennial fumble led to a
seven-yard touchdown run
by Central
quarterback/wide receiver
Mozekiel Raynor.
All of a sudden, the score
was 14-10, and the Cobras
were right back in the
game.


But that was where the
scoring road ended for Cen-
tral.
The Cobras lost almost
every key player from last
year's district champion
team, and the inexperience
showed against the Eagles.
Starting quarterback Tim
Smith showed poise in the
pocket, but the offensive
line rarely gave the 'sopho-
more enough time to do
much but run for his life or
take a sack.
Centennial had six sacks
in the game
"We didn't block at all: It
was a sieve up front," Cen-
tral head coach Chris
Hutchings said. "I don't
have an answer without
watching film but we have
to get better up front."
Raynor didn't do much
better taking snaps after
Smith left the game with
ankle injury, but even he
left the game and Central
went to running back Tim
White to play quarterback.
"We have some skill kids
and I thought we had some
depth there but apparently
we don't. We were down to
our emergency quarter-
back," Central head coach
Chris Hutchings said. "It
was like a Chinese fire drill.
We were looking down at
our depth chart trying to
think who we could we put

in where."
A recovered fumble in the
end 'zone, lost onside kick
followed by a Gardenhire
touchdown on the next play
and a snap over the head of
White for a safety added 17-
points to the Eagles side of
the scoreboard and insult
to injury to the Cobra side-
line.
Centennial 'kicker Scott
Garber also had two field
goals.
"The way (last) season
ended it was kind of shaky,"
O'Neal said. "So we needed
a win like this under these
guys belts."

By JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
PORT ST. LUCIE Nor-
inally, being grounded is a
bad thing.
Although hampered by
an ineffective passing
attack, Sebastian River
used, a dynamic running
game to the tune of six
touchdowns to hold off an
upset-minded Treasure
Coast team 40-18 Friday
night.
First-year quarterback
Chris Lyda's 1-for-5 per-
formance for no yards was
overshadowed by the
Sharks' dominating 425
yards on the ground.
"At some point in time
this year, we have ,to be
able to throw the football,"
Sharks' head coach Randy
Bethel said. "But we feel
very confident in our run-
ning game.
"When we are executing
our running game, it's
hard to slow down."
After the Sebastian River
(1-0) defense recovered a
fumble deep in Titans' ter-
ritory in the opening series
of the game, the Sharks
wasted little time in capi-
talizing on the miscue.
Justin Moree carried the
ball on two consecutive'
plays, the latter being an
11-yard touchdown to put
Sebastian ahead just min-
utes into the game.
The score remained 7-0
until the closing seconds
of the first quarter when
Cornelius King needed
just one play to change it.
Taking a handoff, the sen-
ior scampered 75 yards for
a touchdown to give
Sebastian a 13-point
advantage.
Treasure Coast showed
its first signs of life on its
next possession. Travis
Jones gave the Titans good
field position, taking the
kickoff to the Treasure
Coast 39.On first down,
Julian Valentin carried for
five yards before Rock
'Angrande fashioned his.
own Sportscenter
moment, blasting through
the Sebastian defense for a
56-yard score.
With the score now 13-6,
the Sebastian running
game went back to work.
Taking over at its own 45
after a Treasure Coast per-
sonal foul call on the kick-
off, King carried for 15
yards into Titans' territory
on first down.
After .Moree was tackled
for a' 3-yard loss, Lyda
attempted one of his five
passes on the night, but
was incomplete. Facing a
third-and-13 from the
Treasure Coast 43, the
Sharks turned to Moree
who ran for 13 yards and
the first down.
Jay Irvin gained three
more while another per-'
sonal foul call on the
Titans put the ball on the
Treasure Coast 12-yard
line.
"We have to eliminate
the personal fouls," Titans'
coach Bill Kelley said. "It's
not good to have over 100
yards in penalties."
I Emmanuel Relford took
the next play 12 yards for
the score, as the Sharks

extended its lead to 13.
The blunders for the
Titans continued as a fum-
ble on the ensuing posses-
sion gave the Sharks the
ball on the Treasure Coast
26. However, after Moree
gained six yards on first
down, Lyda was intercept-
ed by John Celestin to tem-
porarily stop the bleeding.
Unfortunately, a quick
three-and-out and a short
punt later, the Sharks
found themselves once
again in Titans' territory.
The Sebastian offense
needed just one play to
extend its lead, as Moree,
who rushed for 244 yards
on the night, took .it 38
yards for the touchdown.
Down 26-6, the Titans'
looked to answer and
almost did. A personal foul
call on the kickoff put the
ball on the Sharks'.49 and
on first down, Sherod
Mouton lofted a ball to a
wide-open Pat Harris but
the sophomore dropped a
sure touchdown pass.
The. Sharks opening
drive of the third quarter
was almost a mirror image
of its one to start the game.
After a personal foul call
on the opening kickoff
negated a Tyrone Collins
touchdown, the Sharks got
most of the yardage back
on the next play.
On first down from the
Sharks' 22, Moree broke
free, taking it all the way to
the Treasure Coast 19.
Another personal foul
penalty on the Titans gave
the Sharks 15 more yards
and King ended the two-
play drive by punching it
in from four yards out.
Down 33-6, the Titans
(0-1) finally connected on
a big pass play when Mou-
ton found Jeff Luc for 33
yards to the Sebastian
River 8. However, on sec-
ond down Mouton was
intercepted by Laque Jef-
ferson to halt the drive.
With 2:50 left in the third
quarter, the Titans began
to make a game of it. Mou-
ton finally found the end
zone on the Titans' next
possession, connecting
with Harris for 30 yards
and the touchdown.
Unfortunately, the Trea-
sure Coast signal caller
was hurt on the play.
New quarterback Dylan
Parker proved to be more
than a competent backup,
tossing a pass to Luc who
went 66 yards for another
score less than two min-
utes later.
With the score now 33-
18, Treasure Coast
appeared poised to con-
tinue the comeback when
the kickoff caromed off a
Sebastian player and was
recovered by the Titans at
the Sharks' 39.
However, there would be
no Hollywood ending, as
the drive stalled at the
Sebastian River 32 and on
second down of the ensu-
ing drive, Moree put the
game away with a 65-yard
touchdown run.
"We played hard," Kelley
said. "Well is coming.
"We had opportunities.
We dropped a touchdown
pass and threw an inter-
ception in the red zone.
"We also missed some
tackles. With Sebastian
River a missed tackle goes
for a touchdown.
"We're starting to learn
how to compete. Winning
will come. I'm proud of the
kids. I can't say that
enough."
