Make-A-Wish stuns student

0 PORT ST. LUCIE -
Lightning struck twice
recently for Port St. Lucie
High School senior Keith
Aquino.
On Sept. 21, Keith was
awarded a brand new con-
' cert tuba with accessories
worth more than $8,000
from' the Make-A-Wish.
Foundation. Keith, whois
a' section leader of the
Pride of Port St. Lucie,
Marching Band, was 'diag-
nosed with Stage 4
Hodgkin's lymphoma just
over a year ago. He is now
in remission.
The presentation was
supposed to happen.
before kickoff of the
Jaguars' football game
against Treasure Coast,
but when lightning post-
poned the game, fans, stu-
dents and players were
Escorted to the gym.
When everyone was
finally inside, Port St.
Lucie athletic .director
Danny Ninestine grabbed
the microphone for a spe-
cial presentation.
Unbeknownst to Keith,
it was for him.
After a standing ova-
tion, a stunned Keith was
asked to test out the new
instrument.
"I was so surprised I
actually didn't know what
to do," Keith said. "So I
just played something
everybody knew, our
school song for PSL."

Keith Aquino solos on his new tuba presented to him through the Make-A-Wish foun-
dation prior to a football game that was scheduled for Friday, Sept. 21.


His band mates soon
joined in and finished
with a cheer.
In September 2006,
Keith began to complain
about a bad cough. That
took him to the hospital
where he was diagnosed
with asthma and put on
an inhaler and steroids.
When that didn't work, he
was re-examined. When


the X-rays came back pos-
itive for cancer, he began
radiation therapy three
days later.
After. 56 radiation ses-
sions and four very tough
chemotherapy treat-
ments, Keith was told his
cancer had gone into
remission this June.
"Keith is a really special
person and he's worked


hard and I think (the pres-
entation and gift) is a tes-
tament to his courage,"
said Port St. Lucie band
director Mike Bearden.
"It's something he can use
for life and he plans on

career so he's set for life

ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
When St. Lucie County
opens its new hurricane
shelter next year, it will
not only protect citizens
with special needs, but it
will also protect the envi-
ronment.
Already under con-
struction, the $12.7 mil-
lion, 60,000-square-foot
special needs shelter is
expected to be opened in
August 2008. ,
The building will
replace what was previ-
ously used as a special
needs shelter, the St.
Lucie County Civic Cen-
ter.
"During Hurricane
Frances, the Civic Center
lost its roof. When Hurri-
cane Jeanne was coming,
we had to ship the special
needs residents to Palm
Beach County, then we
lost the temporary roof
on the building with Hur-
ricane Wilma," said coun-
ty administrator Doug
Anderson.
"At that point, it was
decided to remove the
structure and build a new
special needs shelter," he
said.

XYLITOL
Q: What is xylitol? X,
A: Xylitol is a natural sugar substitute, it is derived most commonly from birch 4
trees or corn. It is increasingly used in candy, gum, toothpaste and mouthwash.
Xylitol is sometimes called wood sugar or birch sugar. Uplike traditional sugars,
which encourages growth of bacteria, Xylitol inhibits bacteria that decay teeth.
Some studies have shown that xylitol can even help repair teeth by stimulating
remineralization in teeth that have already been affected by decay, and that it can .
reduce plaque. because xylitol is low in calories and is absorbed more slowly than sugar, it is safe
for diabetics. D
In 2005 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the product as a dental decay and
periodontal disease preventive. The FDA recommends using xylitol two or three times a day so
that the mouth and body are exposed to about 10 grams, chewing the gum or sucking on a
candy for at least five minutes. Talk with your dentist about the potential benefits of xylitol in
your diet.

PORT ST. LUCIE A visi-
tor would never imagine
that Donald Ronaldes, 76, of
Port St. Lucie had under-
gone a .procedure at St.
Lucie Medical Center to
remove an. abdominal
aneurysm just one week
ago.
Until recently, surgeries to
remove such an aneurysm
were invasive and risky, and
most surgeons would not
consider operating unless
the risk of the aneurysm
rupturing exceeded the risk
of surgery.
That all changed a few
years ago when a non-inva-
sive procedure to treat aor-
tic aneurysms in the
abdomen became available.


Locally, Dr. Rene Loyola, a
Port .St. Lucie general .and
vascular surgeon who is on
the board of directors of St.
Lucie Medical Center, has
performed approximately
200 such procedures on
patients in the. last few
years, including those in
Port St. Lucie and Fort
Pierce. He is one of only a
few such surgeons perfom-
ing the procedure locally.
"I think there is a mincon-
ception that these proce-
dures are not being done on
the Treasure Coast I've been
doing them for seven years
now," said Dr. Loyola.
Mr. Ronaldes, for one, is
happy for that fact.
"This is my third surgery
in a year, and I was really
glad they were able to use
the new procedure. I'm
already on the mend," he


said.
Mr. Ronaldes' other sur-
geries involved heart bypass
surgery and surgery for a
blocked carotid artery.
Aortic aneurysms, or a
swelling of the aorta, are
created by a weakness in the
wall of the adrta. A rupture
of the aneurysm can cause
severe pain, internal hemor-
rhaging and often, sudden
death.
Complicating matters is
the fact that aneurysms fre-
quenly present no symp-
tomrs, so those afflicted have
no clue that they have an
aneurysm until they are
undergoing tests for unre-
lated problems, and an
aneurysm is detected on an
ultrasound.
Dr. Loyola said he is able
to perform the non-invasive
procedure on approximate-
ly 60 percent of his patients
with abdominal aneurvsms.

SafeSpace there to help victims of violence


BY WENDY DWYER
Specialfor Hometown News

Editor's Note: October is
National Domestic Aware-
ness month. The following is
the first of a four-part series
dealing with the many issues
of domestic violence.

It was more than 20 years
ago, but the impeccably
dressed blonde professional
still has a hard time looking
you in the eye when she tells
her story.
"Linda" nervously touches
her pearl necklace as she
remembers what it felt like to
board a train with two small
children and only $40 in her
pocket and not a clue where
she would end up.
"We had no 'home, no
money, no clothing and no


food we were like pioneers,
starting out with absolutely
nothing," she said. "That is
where my life really started."
Linda's story is not new,
nor is it unique here on the
Treasure Coast or elsewhere.
And most heartbreaking' of
all is that, while you may not
know this particular woman
by her real name, you know
her very well.
Indeed, she could be your
next door neighbor, your sis-
ter, or even you. She is the
face of domestic violence.
Here on the Treasure
Coast, she is more than sim-
ply another face she is
often a woman with children
who finds hope and a chance
to heal and thrive after
domestic violence with help
from SafeSpace, a domestic
violence shelter and educa-


tional program. It is funded
locally by the Children's, Ser-
vices. Council, the United
Way, donations from the
community, and the Florida
Coalition Against Domestic
Violence.
Last year, more than 700
victims of domestic violence
and their children sought
and received safe emergency
shelter, medical attention,
counseling, referral, advoca-
cy services, food, clothing,
and even legal assistance
through SafeSpace.-
Domestic violence victims
both on the Treasure Coast
and elsewhere do not fall
into any particular socioeco-
nomic, racial, or religious
category. Domestic abuse,
does not discriminate
against anyone because of
their bank account or skin


color.
SafeSpace understands the
many faces of domestic vio-
lence and the non-profit pro-
gram, which provides assis-
tance for victims in St. Lucie,
Martin and Indian River
counties, has been a beacon
of hope for victims of domes-
tic violence since its incep-
tion in 1979.
According to SafeSpace
Executive Director, Hylan
Bryan, SafeSpace began as
something like an under-
ground railroad for victims of
domestic violence. It was
originally known as the Indi-
an River County Spousal
Abuse Program.
Since its humble begin-
nings, the program has
turned 'into a well-oiled

Billboards to appear along 1-95, Turnpike

Not wanting to violate a 2002 settlement agree-
ment, the city council has given approval for zoning
and land use changes that will allow billboards to be
erected on eight sites along 1-95 and Florida's Turn-
pike.
When the city was facing a budget shortfall in 1999,
it awarded.a contract to Eller Media, now known as
Clear Channel, paving the way for the company to
erect billboards on sites along those major highways.
Subsequently, the council decided this agreement
wasn't in the city's best interests, but Clear Channel
indicated their intentions to sue if the city didn't
honor the contract. Through a 2002 settlement, the
company was permitted to erect the signs.
Thereafter, the Florida Department of Transporta-
tion, which initially would not grant permits for the
' billboards, was taken to court on the issue and lost.

Airoso Boulevard speed
limit raised to 40 mph

With Mayor Patricia P. Christensen and Councilman
Chris Cooper in opposition, the city council on Sept.
24 voted to raise the speed limit on Airoso Boulevard
in Port St. Lucie from 35 to 40 mph.
"When the road was completed several years ago,
the city engineering department and the chief of
police recommended increasing the speed limit to 40
mph," said Mayor Christensen.
i "However, residents asked that it remain at 35 mph
and city council agreed," she said.
Mayor Christensen said the issue of raising the
speed limit came up again recently. This time, updat-
ed studies were requested from the engineering and
police departments, and those.agencies recommend-
ed the increase to 40 mph once again.
"The studies found that the traffic between Port St.
Lucie Boulevard and Whitmore Drive did stay within
35 mph, but as the traffic got past the curve at Whit-
more, the majority of the people on Airoso between
Prima Vista Boulevard and St. James Drive were driv-
ing in excess of 55 mph," said Mayor Christensen.

New pet fee takes effect in
unincorporated St. Lucie County

Residents in unincorporated areas of St. Lucie
County must now register their dogs and cats with the
Public Safety Department.
A new policy, which took effect Oct. 1, requires reg-
istration through participating veterinarian offices or
the Humane Society of St. Lucie County.
Approved by the Board of County Commissioners
in April, this new ordinance requires dog and cat
owners to pay a $10 annual registration fee.
For animals that have been spayed or neutered,
owners will pay a one-time fee of $25 for the life of the
pet. ,
The cost for unaltered animals is $75 per animal.
There are discounts' for registering additional pets
that have been spayed or neutered, county officials
said.
The new policy requires breeders to pay an annual
$100 registration fee.
"The ultimate goal of this program is raise funds to
offer low-cost spaying and neutering and hopefully

IS IT MINE ?
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.

was late for work, decided,
to continue on to his job at
Wal-Mart.
As of press time, Mr.
Fleming had not been
charged in the accident.
Alexis was injured just
two days after Lakewood
Park Elementary School
student Kristopher Huff-
man, 5, darted across the
street to get to his school
bus and was struck and
killed on St. Lucie Boule-
vard in unincorporated St.
Lucie County. The driver of
the sport utility vehicle,
who was driving the speed
limit and stopped when
the accident occurred, was
not charged.
The accidents have
renewed debates about
the safety of children on
their way to school, and
the need for parents and
drivers alike to do their
part in keeping the coun-
ty's children safe.
"First of all, we are going
out on a communication
campaign to alert drivers
that they need to be care-
ful in the early morning
.hours when students are
waiting for buses," said
Mayor Patricia N. Chris-
tensen.

Chief John M. Skinner
presided over a news con-
ference the day Alexis
Blackmore was hit on her
way to school.
"We had an incident in
Fort Pierce where sun
allegedly played a part,
and now it appears dark-
ness played a part," said
Chief Skinner.
"We are really con-
cerned about parents reit-
erating to their youngsters,
the importance of child
safety, especially late in
the season when daylight
savings time is still in
place," he said.
Mayor Christensen said
she plans on addressing
the issue at the Oct. 8 city
council meeting.
"I will put on the Oct. 8
agenda a discussion as to
whether council should
take one step further a
resolution requesting the
school district to remove
bus stops from major arte-
rials ,and collector road-
ways that don't have side-
walks," she said.
Mayor Christensen said
the Port St. Lucie City
'Council passed such a res-
olution in 2006,
"However, I want to ask
the council if they want to
go any further than that
and make it a mandate
rather than a request," she
said, explaining that col-
lector roadways are those
that take traffic from resi-
dential streets to major


roads, or arterials.
Mayor Christensen said
she is also attempting to
schedule a meeting with
the ,school board to dis-
cuss other issues "relative
to the same topic."
"In the past, the city has
asked the school district to
place bus stops in areas,
and the city would then
ask Florida Power and
Light to put street lighting
in those areas," said Mayor
Christensen.
"Unfortunately, they've
moved bus stops to other
locations. We can't afford
to be putting up lights if
the bus stops will then be
moved," she said.
Karen Williams, St. Lucie
County School District
transportation director,
was not able to be reached
for comment by press
time.
Mayor Christensen was
quick to point out that the
school district does not
bear sole responsibility for
the safety of children ;on
their way to school.
"The blame needs to be
placed on everyone here,"
she said. "Parents need to
educate their children bet-
ter. We, as parents, have to
educate our children and
teach them to be cog-
nizant of drivers."
Mayor Christensen
pointed' out that reflector
tape on children's clothing
or shoes and other reflec-
tive merchandise can go a
long way in making chil-
dren more visible to driv-
ers.
"There is an abundance
of different things on the
market. You can go into
the running department or
bicycle department in any
store and find reflective
items that can be clipped.
onto clothing or back-
packs," she said.
Chief Skinner also
stressed the responsibility
of drivers and parents in
keeping the city's children
safe.
"I don't think there is a
driver out there that has
not had occasion to. drive
down the street and see
children along the road-
and said, 'I'm glad I was
paying. attention,'" said
Chief Skinner.
"As youngsters, we all
had, that indestructible
phase. Parents need to
drive home constantly the
importance of staying out
of the street, wearing
reflective clothing and
doing some of the things
that will make it safer. Two
tragedies in the last few
days is far too many. Even
one in a school year is far
too.many," he said.

Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous
statements. Statements offact will be checked for

Stay out of the street

Many people were happy and delighted that they could
participate in putting a drunken drug addict in a position to
serve 36 years for running over a stupid woman who was
pushing her child in, and on, a highway.
She was not along side the highway, but on the road in
the lane of traffic.
It's lucky the other dummy wasn't also.
Take down the totem pole, put it in the cemetery, and
erect a sign that says, don't play, push, or stroll in the street.
Someone might read it.

Channel 20

A month ago the city of Port St. Lucie said that they were
considering cutting out the public service channel, channel
20, because of budget cuts.
They really didn't do such a good job, because now we
have a cooking class on there. The last one I saw was with
Vice Mayor Kelly.
I watched the Port St. Lucie police forum on pubic service
channel on Sept. 13.
I can't understand why the people of Port St. Lucie allow
this to go on.
I don't know how many hundreds of thousands of dollars
the city taxpayers pay for this, channel, but I believe I'm
probably the only one out of several hundred people I know
that watches it.
Maybe we should stop the channel, and put the money
toward something else.
Maybe put it toward free school lunches, or maybe giving
a raise to some of our fine city workers, especially the
superintendents.
I believe it should be looked into, and I believe the choice
of people that they select to talk in front of these forums
needs to be looked into very carefully.
I do not appreciate listening to what I listened to on Sept.
13 about HIV, AIDS, and rap.
Music is fine, but there is a place for it, and that is not on a
city channel.
This city bends over backwards to accommodate
whomever they want.
I've never heard of a city anywhere that has this forum
that.goes on continuously for hours and hours on end,
showing the same stuff day in and day out.
It needs to be stopped.

Shame on the council

It is really sad that it has come to the point where a man
in Port St Lucie, Mr. Larson, the communications, director
lost his job because the city council didn't feel he was pro-
moting them in the proper light.
I watch channel 20, and all of the shows and activities
that Communications Director Larson had, and he did
nothing but an outstanding job.
These buffoons wanted him to go out of his way to be
their butt-boy.,
That's not part of the communications job.
Just like his predecessor, he did a wonderful job.
Unfortunately these clowns, are so insecure and inept
that they needed someone to kiss their rear.
This guy lost his job, and now he is probably going to go
to a better place.
Good-bye Mr. Larson.
Unfortunately, we are stuck with these idiots on the
council.

I love the paper

This is aravyefor the Hoinetown News.
I just love your paper., I look forward to it every single
Thursday.
From the front page to the back page, I just love it.
1 kJlow that the County Commiksion should be grateful
for your rants and raves section, because I'm sure that they
would be hearing about some things if people weren't
allowed to vent.
Thanks so much for your paper.

There are no special circumstance

I am responding to the "Choose life, whose life" rant that
was in the paper.
This person wanted to know why everyone feels that they
need to put choose life on their license plate.
The reason is very clear.
It is to protect an unborn child from the ultimate death of
abortion.
,You are wrong to say that the choose life proponents say
that it is OK to have an abortion in cases of rape or molesta-
tion. :
This is not called a special circumstance.
A woman who is pregnant has a living being in her and
does not have any right to terminate it.
There are thousands of couples on waiting lists that will
gladly accept that precious little baby.
I should know. Our 14-year old daughter was raped, and


became pregnant.
After much counseling, and prayer, she gave birth to a
beautiful baby boy.
She gave the baby up for adoption, knowing that she
couldn't give the baby the upbringing he deserved because
of her age.
A wonderful couple adopted the baby boy, and now he is
doing great.
My daughter has graduated from college, is happily mar-
ried, and has a son of her own.
She often thinks about the precious little boy she gave up
for adoption, but knows in her heart that she did the right
thing.
Abortion in any terms is taking away a life.
In the article, the ranter also says that people like the
choose lifers should be blamed for the 16-year old girl who
hides her pregnancy from her parents, has the baby in a gas
station bathroom, and puts him in a dumpster, left to die
because she is too ashamed to tell her parents.
That is a really sick thing to say.
These types of things happen, but they are mostly done
because of parents not talking to their children, and educat-
ing them about things that may happen in life.
Children have to know that no matter what; they can talk
to their-parents.
I will pray for you, and for all of the unborn children.

Reply to 'Florida tax laws not fair'

Regarding the ranter about taxes, for starters, live within
your means.
Don't buy a $300,000 home, if you can't afford the taxes.
Secondly, you stated you have no job; that may be part of
the problem.
The Homestead Act is a Godsend for Florida.
The problem lies with those people that do not reside
here trying to make a quick buck flipping homes.
Blame them for the rise in taxes and values.
Do all Florida residents a favor, and denounce the Super
Exemption, or we'll all suffer soon.

More on homosexuals

Okay, let's try this once more, shall we? We'll start with.the
ranter's response, "Judge not lest you be judged."
S.First, the ranter "supposes" that I am a Christian because I
quote the Bible by chapter and verse.
Many non-Christians quote the Bible every day.
By this supposition the ranter passes judgment on me for
being a Christian, and I pray there is enough evidence to
convict me of it..
Secondly, I am accused of judging homosexuals.
I stated very plainly that it is God's Law, not my opinion,
that homosexuality is an abomination, and therefore obvi-
ously wrong.
I: judged no one: I merely stated fact.
Thirdly, the suggestion that I keep my mouth andperson--
al opinions to myself is laughable.
The Rants and Rates, is an opinion page, andI'llbe sureto
give the suggestion all the consideration I feel it is due.,
Thank you for quoting Matthew 7:1 and Luke 6:37 about
judging others, even though you quoted only part of the
versei4i and completely out of context, as most "politically
correct people" do.
Now, as to "attitude, not definition."'
Firstly. I am neither self-righteous, nor would I ever pre-
iume to speak for God.
God speaks for himself very well, thank you very much.
I merely quoted scripture and stated facts. I never stated
that all who disagree with me are sinners, and I am very well
versed in the different world cultures.
I also respect everyone's right to their own beliefs, even if
their beliefs midnight send them to hell. That is what "free will"
is all about.
We are all sinners; we Christians are just forgiven because
we have asked Jesus Christ to forgive and cleanse us.
The ranter's definition of the word, homosexual is accu-
rate. However, I defined the word, abomination, not homo-
sexual.
If you are going to judge me, judge me for what I actually
wrote.
As to scientific evidence that homosexuality is not nor-
mal, I have given you the greatest evidence that science,
nature and God can provide, gays cannot procreate; they



can only recruit.
If homosexuality were normal, all animal life would cease
to exist.
What more evidence could you possible need? If it is nor-
mal, why isn't everyone gay? I don't practice a religion.
I stand fast on God's holy word, and apply God's princi-
ples to my life. Do you?
No true Christian can respect or accept a homosexual
lifestyle.
WillI share a pew, a hymnal, or Bible with a homosexual?
You bet.
Will I. vote a homosexual into membership in God's
house? God forbid, but I will be happy to counsel and pray
with, and for, them anytime, any place.
It does sadden me, however, that my genuine concern for
all gays was twisted and perverted by you in your
responsess, just as I said it would be.
Lastly, God will bless all people and nations, as long as
they bless Israel, Gen 12:3
"And I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that
curseth thee..."
So, do not cast stones at me, or judge me for telling you
the truth of God's word.
After all, I am only the messenger, and you obviously need
to hear it.

Take precautions

I read more and more about people getting hurt, or worse,
when they answer their front door to strangers.
Maybe what I do to protect myself will help others.
Everyone has a front window. When I answer my front
door, Igo to the window with a phone in my hand.
I raise the window just a little to see what they want,
That way I am not in full range of being violated.
Also, I have no solicitor sign on my door. I notice that
helps keep away people selling, or pretending to sell.

Ugly inside is bone deep

This is in response to rant and rave about fat people.
I don't know who the hell you think you are, but obviously
you think you're perfect.
Too bad we don't live in a perfect world.
Thank God, most people aren't as simple minded as you.
What a dull world this would be.
So to all of us that are overweight, we may be fat, but we
can lose weight. However, ugly inside and out goes all the
way to the bone.
Do us all a favor, and'pack yourself up and take your Yan-
kee self, and your attitude back to Connecticut.
For the sake of us all, stay off the beaches.

Response to negative articles

I'm disheartened when I read articles filled with prejudice
and judgnients.
The article on,"fat people" was appalling, insulting and
showed the ignorance and lack of sensitivity of the writer.
I am 5 feet 3 inches, and weigh 129 pounds, just for your
point of reference.
I suggest ou ask yourself this question: If you were dying
and the most experienced surgeon in the world weighed 300
pounds, and was the only one who could save your life,
would you feel the same way?
Would you refuse to be helped byhim/her?
But by the grace of God, this writer is not fighting the
eveiy day weight problems that he or she is observing in
other people.
To see one's self so perfect, and without a single flaw must
be wonderful,
If you have never smoked, drank, insulted someone, lied,
cheated, been abusive, unloving, inconsiderate, a bully,
intolerant, lazy, unkind, been angry, etc., then you may "cast
the first stone."
Believe me, none of us are near that perfect. In fact we are
so low on the evolutionary scale that we should be
ashamed.
The negative articles on homosexuality, leave me won-
dering why we fear terrorism from without, when each of, as
seen in such negative, insulting and derogatory articles, are
expressing none other then the" terrorist within."

Rants & Raves
From page A6
As I see it, those who lack tolerance, patience, under-
standing, sympathy, empathy, and all the goodness these
verbs pronounce, reflect in their words the emptiness that
comes from a dispirited personality.
This type of negativity contributes to separation and
exclusion, rather than oneness, which calls for inclusion.
We must awaken to the reality that we all emanate from
one God, and none is more special then the other, even
though some of us would like to think so.
We are in this world to heal the world, not to destroy it
with our pettiness and puffed-up thinking.
It's time to make a positive contribution as human beings.
Time to think from spirit rather than ego, time to be a con-
tributor of goodness, to search out the terrorist element
within each of us, and decide whether or not it is serving us,
as humanity.
Look around folks, it is not.
Just remember every hurt we inflict with our tongue, will
come back to us in some shape or form, because as the say-
ing goes, "what comes around goes around."

You are guilty also

This is directed to the persons) who witnessed the kittens
being thrown out of the vehicle.
I want to thank you for being enough of a human being to
call the police with a description of the vehicle.
Next, I sincerely hope you were embellishing for the sake
of writing, that the kittens were there for two days and
nights.
If you were not, I condemn your actions and hope that.
you receive the same punishment as the persons) that did
,the original deed.
If you knew that the kittens were there, you should have
made the same phone calls you suggested to the people
committing the act.
You should have stopped your car and collected them. Or,
if you live nearby, which you must, if you knew they were
there for two days and nights, you should have collected
them.
You are as guilty for the cruelty they endured, as the per-
son is who threw them out.
What a horrible way to go.
You deserve some sleepless nights, in addition to the pun-
ishment, to reflect on the fact that you did not help those
helpless creatures.
I can assure you, that even if I had been running late to an
appointment, that I could not miss or be late for, that I
would have stopped, and at the very least made sure those'
kittens were safe.
I am sure that there are more people than not that would
have made the same decision to help. You did not.
Instead, you opted to. let them suffer for two days and
nights. Shame on you is nowhere near strong enough.
However, I want this published so I need to self-edit. I am
sure people will understand what I really want to say.
J have never written a newspaper with. the intent to be
published in my 40 years on this planet.
What you did was so appalling that my wife asked me to
stop reading your rant, andto start composing my own rant
at breakfast on Saturday.

We are not judging

In reply to the letters regarding homosexuality behavior,
please understand that genuine Christians do love all peo-
ple.
Keep in mind that it is sin that we are to hate, such as
lying, stealing, adultery, sexual immorality, etc. because
according to God, sin is what keeps us out of heaven when
we pass on.
We are not judging anyone, just quoting what God has
said.


All people must judge themselves based on what they do,
or don't do, according to God's word.
Each person will stand before God some day.
Be assured that the Bible says there is no sin of any kind
allowed in heaven, for it is a perfect and holy place.
It is stated in both the Old and New Testaments that
homosexuality is a sin.
If people are going to say they are truly believers in the
Bible, then they would seek God's help and forgiveness of
any sin in their lives, and Jesus would forgive that sin.
It's really that simple

Teacher's pay

I have a rant about teachers saying that they are grossly
underpaid.
I just read where the average teacher's pay is $43,500.
That does not seem bad for working nine months a year,
and having early dismissals every other Wednesday.
Also, getting off work everyday around 3:30 p.m. doesn't
seem too bad. It actually sounds great.
Add this to all of the sick days they get, and the health
and welfare benefits they receive, and I don't see how they
can talk about being underpaid.
As far as the administrator's pay, you don't hear any cry-
ing from them.
It is quite obvious why.
Some of them average over $110,000 a year. That does
not include all their benefits.,
School principals also get $80,000 to $85,000 a year for
elementary to middle school. The high school principals get
over $100,000 a year.
I like the rant that was place earlier about the employees
behind the scene being underpaid. I .
Those include the bus drivers, the maintenance workers,
and cafeteria workers.
They are the ones that deserve much better wages,
because they are underpaid.
Let's work on getting all A schools, like Martin iCounty
has, and then we can talk about getting raises for our teach-
ers.

Beautiful column

I would like to let you know how beautiful I find the astrol-
ogy and the spiritual column in Hometown News.
The guy that does this wonderful. .
In 2005, when I first began reading his column, nry mom
and I were in an accident. Reading this spiritual column
was so beautiful. It really lifted up our spirits and hearts.
My mother lives in Daytona and looks forward to reading
the column every week.
I live in Miami, so I don't get the paper.
I call my mom every Friday, and she reads it to me.
I love it. It is so beautiful.,

No mask or blanket for me

This is in response to the rant about fat people.
I would like to say that this fat person refuses to put on a
blanket and a mask when I go to the beach.
I would, however, be happy to poke out the eyes of this
awful, disgusting person so that he does riot have to be
bothered seeing me.
His outward appearance must be beautiful, but his inside
is ugly.
His soul is dark.
I feel sorry for him.

Get a heart


Regarding the rant about fat people, I have read and seen
a lot, but I feel I need to comment on this.
The party who came here 20 years ago from Connecticut
takes the prize.
We came down here many years ago, too.
You know what we liked about it? Everyone was so friend-


ly, and no one gave a darn about how you were dressed at
the beach.
They still don't, except for Connecticut.
I don't care what the ranter looks like, or how he attained
the look.
He may thing he looks good on the outside, but he has
plenty to correct on the inside.
I applaud all those people who go to the beach wearing
whatever.
It's their time to enjoy.
It takes a lot for a mother to gather her children to take
them to the beach, not to mention watching -them while
they are there.
So you want those folks to put on a blanket and a mask,
eh?
Let me tell you something. Get a heart, and put away all
of your mirrors.
You are the disgusting one.
Do us all a favor and stay home and read a book until you
can be a softer and.nicer person.

Press one for English

It doesn't stop at the telephone.
On the radio the DJs were speaking about the weather
conditions, and mentioned the water on the west coast of
Florida.
It was referred to the golf, not the Gulf, of Mexico.
Later on in the day, on the television, a vocational school
was made reference to as the curinari institute.
How can they train chefs when they can't even pronounce
the word culinary?
So much for articulation, and clever conversationalists in
the English language.:


Appearances may hide handicaps

This is in response to a past rant about parking placards.
Be -advised that your license number is imprinted on the
yellow tag right underneath the words "Parking Placard."
I personally just have a placard and that is where my
license number is. If you have a handicap plate and placard
that ma\ be ditterent issue.
I suggest checking with the tag office so you can get the
correct information. If your tag number was on the placard
then you could not use it inrany other vehicles that is why
they put your driver's license number on it. Also, most peo-
ple always.drive around 0itthmut removing the placard when
it specifically states, "reimot e before driving."
Yes, it is a disgrace to use a disabled person's placard
improperly, but there is a point I would like to make while
on the subject.
For the people (who) think just because a person is big
that;they should not have a parking placard: Take a moment
and think. Do they .have a heart condition? Respiratory dis-
ease? Emph\ iea?
Just because people don't have visible signs, don't assume
they are not handicapped.
Remember what the word "assume" really means.

Writer weary of handicap ratings

I do enjoy reading the Hometown News, all of it.
I am, however, getting tired reading the rants about
"abuse" of the handicap parking hang tags.
First, the tags, carry the driver's license number of the
handicapped person with a verifiable handicap, properly
documented by a licensed physician, to the standards
established by.the state of Florida. The tags are not issued by
a doctor, as the most recent complainer states.
Second, a cardiac condition is not visible, unless our com-
plainer is an MD with ESP. A person with a heart problem
may have been cleared to drive a car, but is limited in ambu-
lation over longer distances.
If the ranter is working in a restaurant or cafeteria, cer-

When asked how
people want their
ssets divided
after they are gone, some
people have definite
opinions, while others are
less certain.
Not only do people
differ in the level of their
uncertainty concerning
how to divvy up their
assets, they even differ in
whatfactors are important
in making the decision.
In June 2007, Money
magazine released a
reader poll concerning
various financial issues.
The following percentages
of respondents ranked
each factor as very impor-
tant:
*Dividing the estate
equally among your
children: .69 percent.
*How responsible each
child is about money: 37
percent.


ROBERT KULAS
Estate Planning
*How helpful each child
has been to you: 29
percent.
*How close you are to
each child: 22 percent.
*How much money each
child has: 22 percent.
*How many children
each child has: 19 percent.
*How much you like
each child's spouse: 10
percent.
Thirty-seven percent
said it can be reasonable
to disinherit a child.
Another item of indeci-
sion for many people is
the choice of decision
makers: Trustee, personal
representative, guardian,
and agents under powers
of attorney.
For each of these posi-
tions, it is important to


name people whose
decision-making ability
you trust. You may be
tempted to name all your
children or siblings to
avoid hurting anyone's
feelings.
However, naming a large
number of people to serve
together in the same role
invites family disharmony
and chaos.
For example, if property
in the trust is to be sold
and you have seven
trustees, many of whom
may be out of town, it
would be a logistical
nightmare to route paper-
work all around the
country.
Typically, things work
more smoothly if you limit
the number of people in
any given role. Besides,
having a job thrust upon
them may be something
many would just as soon
avoid.
Regardless of what
factors are important to
you, a qualified estate-
planning attorney can help
you achieve your goals.
For example, if you are
concerned about your
child's ability to manage
finances, the money can
be left in a trust which will
prevent him or her from


accessing the funds
without the permission of
a person whom you
designate, the trustee.
If you do not like your
child's spouse and are
concerned he or she might
divorce your child and
take some of the inheri-
tance you leave your child,
you can leave your assets
in a "divorce protection
trust."
Such a trust keeps the
assets separate from
marital assets. Therefore,
it minimizes the risk of the
assets ending up in the
hands of the child's future
ex-spouse.
A qualified estate-
planning attorney can
help you achieve your
goals while paving the way
for your family's contin-
ued success and harmony
after you are gone.

Bank celebrates 25 years of success


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

Riverside Bank recently
celebrated 25 successful
years of providing neigh-
bors and local businesses
with a hometown style of
banking.
Riverside opened its
doors on Sept. 13, 1982,
the result of a vision that
Vernon D. Smith, Riverside
Bank's Chief Executive
Officer and founder had.
"A locally owned bank
would be able to offer
more personalized busi-
ness, and that's what we
did," said Mr. Smith.
Riverside Bank continues
that philosophy today,
offering hometown bank-
ing to people and busi-
nesses in 43 hometowns


across Florida.
The Bank's first branch
was a modular trailer situ-
ated at 2211 Okeechobee
Road, in Fort Pierce, where
a two-story branch stands
today.
"The greater Fort Pierce
area was growing and I saw
the need for a customer-
focused bank; a bank that
could provide service by
local people to the local
residents and businesses,"
said Mr. Smith.
The Bank began with ten
employees. Today it
employs over 1,000 people,
including five of the origi-
nal ten.
'From its humble begin-
nings of one modest
branch in Fort Pierce a
quarter century, ago, the
Bank now owns 65 branch


Vernon D. Smith


locations stretched across
ten Florida counties. Two
more branches are sched-
uled to open before the
end of this year.
Riverside Bank has the
largest market share for
financial institutions in St.
Lucie and Okeechobee


counties. Plus, it is the
largest community bank in
Brevard and Volusia coun-
ties.
"Reflecting on our first 25
years in business," said Mr.
Smith, "our Riverside team
is deeply grateful to our
customers for their will-
ingness to trust a new
endeavor in the early
1980s. We also want to
offer our heartfelt thanks
to the employees and their
families, whose dedication
and sacrifices allowed us
to fulfill our customers'
needs while also building a
strong foundation for
future growth."
The Bank celebrated
throughout the week of
Sept. 10-15 in its 15 loca-
tions along the Treasure
Coast.

machine of counseling,
hope, and safety, offering a
wide variety of services and
opportunities for victims of
domestic violence.' It has
joined forces with the Florida
Coalition Against Domestic
Violence; a statewide organi-
zation covering 41 domestic
violence shelters throughout
Florida.
SafeSpace can mean the
difference between sleeping
on the streets, in their cars if
they're lucky enough to have
one, or going back to their
abuser.
In short, SafeSpace can,
mean the difference between
life and death for victims of
domestic abuse and their
children.
In spite of the growth of
the organization and the
community, SafeSpace has
never forgotten its basic mis-
sion, which is to provide
shelter, advocacy and
resources for victims of
domestic violence and their
families.
Sometimes women find
out about SafeSpace from a
law enforcement official who
comes to their home to inter-
vene during a domestic call.
Sometimes they call the hot-
line number, (800) 500-1119,
and talk to a caring volun-
teer. And sometimes it's not
the first time they've tried to
get away.
It's hard for a woman to
leave an abusive situation; if
there are children involved,
it's almost impossible
because usually part of the
abuse is financial as well,
and it's hard to find a place to
live, a job, and safe day care
provisions especially
when your face is a veritable
palette of bruises and your
self-esteem is non-existent.


Sometimes the issue is
,even more complicated and
involves green cards, citizen-
ship status or even threats to
the safety of children or
beloved pets. Often victims
will stay in an abusive rela-
tionship because of the chil-
dren but that's almost
always a very big mistake.
Studies show that children
who grow up in homes
where domestic violence and
abuse occur are likely to
themselves become abusers
or victims of domestic vio-
lence.
Because children learn
what they live, SafeSpace
continues to provide safety,
shelter, counseling services
and even children's programs
throughout the tri-county
area. With help from caring
professionals and a safe place
to stay, many women find the
strength to start over again;
to believe in themselves and
to make a change in their
lives to help themselves, and
help break the cycle of abuse
for their children.

It is a place of hope and a

it's a place where there is no
violence and it's available
when a victim of domestic
abuse needs help and safety
the most: right now.
Whatever time of day or
night, whatever the situation,
if a woman is in danger, Safe-
Space is there to help. And
whether the call comes from
law enforcement officials, a
woman who has just fled her
home, or a child whose mom

Know the facts when preparing for flu season


It is hard to believe that
another flu season is
upon us, yet here it is
again.
Influenza is a serious
disease and you should take'
it seriously. ,
According to the Centers


for Disease Control and
Prevention, flu causes more
than 36,000 deaths a year,
mostly among the elderly.
The flu season runs from
November to April. Begin-
ning in September or
October, flu shots should be

available to people at high
risk. The best time to get
vaccinated is in October
and November, because it
takes about two weeks for
your body to begin to
produce antibodies to fight
the flu.
However, even if you don't
get a vaccine until later in
the season, you can still
benefit from it, as Florida
typically has a flu season
that begins later than the


seasons in some other
Brha*Wednstates.

Consult your physician to
see if they are appropriate
for you. They must be
started within two days of
the illness' onset, so seek
medical care early on if you

Good health habits may
also help prevent the spread
of the flu.
These include:

you cough or sneeze, and
discarding the tissue after
use.
Washing your hands
often with soap and water,
especially after you cough
or sneeze. If you are not
near water, use an alcohol-
based hand cleaner, sold in
many stores. Wash your
hands for 10-15 seconds,
rinse well, and dry.
Stay away from people
who are sick whenever
possible.
If you get the flu, stay
home from work or school.
Try not to touch your
eyes, nose or mouth.
Germs are often spread this
way.

The nasal-spray flu
vaccine contains weak-
ened virus and is given by
a nasal sprayer. It has only
been approved for use in
those ages 5-49. Both
vaccines cause antibodies
to develop in the body and
the antibodies protect
against the influenza
virus.
Kevin Cate, spokesman
for the Florida Depart-
inent of Health, urges
people to plan ahead,
practice good hygiene and
be considerate of others.
"All throughout the year,
but especially during the
flu season, we encourage
all Floridians, both adults
and children, to maintain
proper hygiene and health
habits. Washing one's
hands on a regular basis is
the foundation of keeping
germs out of the body.
Keep your hands away
from your mouth, nose
and eyes in order to ensure
that you're not placing .
those germs on your face.
"If you must sneeze or
cough, do so into your arm
or a tissue so that you
don't transfer germs to
your hands. Stay home if
you're not feeling well. You
won't be able to work to
your full potential and you
run the risk of making
others sick, as well," he
said.
The following groups are
considered at high risk by
the CDC and should get
vaccinated before the end
of October.


People, ages 65 and
older, with chronic med-
ical conditions.
Residents of long-term
care facilities.
People, ages 2-64 years
old, with chronic medical
conditions.
Pregnant women.
Health care workers
who provide direct patient
care.
People living with a
person in a high-risk
group, or caregivers who
go to the homes of high-
risk individuals.
Children, ages 6-23
months and caregivers of
newborns, because
children under 24 months
are at high risk for compli-
cations.
Getting a flu shot is one
of the best things you can
do to safeguard your
health and the health of
at-risk family members. If
you get the flu, at the very
least you're in for a miser-
able time. For young
children, the elderly and
those with chronic illness-
es, the risk of complica-
tions is high.
Speak to your health
care provider, and if it's
indicated, get yourself and
your family protected.

found another position,"
he said.
On Sep. 17, Mr. Cunning-
ham took over as interim
communications director
for the city. He will remain
in the interim position for
four months, after which
city officials will decide if
he will be named perma-
nent director.
"I want to focus a little
more on education in the
community on important
issues," said Mr. Cunning-
ham.
As an example, Mr. Cun-
ningham and his staff have
already put together a 12-
minute video entitled
"Taxes, Budgets and Your
Money," which can be
viewed on PSL-TV 20 and
on the city's Web site at
www.cityofpsl.com.
"So many people have
questions about taxes.
They want to know how the
city uses their money, what


they are charged and how
they are charged. We put
together a video that
explains all of this, includ-
ing how it affects the city
budget,'" said Mr. Cunning-
ham.
Although the program-
ming on PSL-TV 20 will
continue in its current for-
mat, Mr. Cunningham said
he hopes to add program-
ming that will be very spe-
cific to Port St. Lucie.
"Currently, we some-
times use 'filler' stories,
such as a State Department
of Agriculture video on how
to maintain trees in your
yard. We will probably do a
little less of that, and focus
more on things specific to
Port St. Lucie," he said.
In addition to his plans to
have more city employees
in front of the camera for
future stories, Mr. Cun-
ningham said a preliminary
design is already in place


for a larger studio for PSL-
TV 20.
"Right now, we are using
a makeshift studio. Our
plan is to move into the
office that Rep. Gayle Har-
rell just moved out of," said
Mr. Cunningham.
PSL-TV 20 is only avail-
able within Port St. Lucie's
city limits and is only avail-
able to customers of Com-
cast and Hometown Cable
Plus.
However, Mr. Cunning-
ham, wanted it noted that
this is not the only way for
residents to obtain city,
news.
"We will continue to inte-
grate PSL-TV 20 with the
city's Web site, and we have
newsletters on the Web site,
as well. So the TV is not the
only way to get city news,"
he said.
Mr. Cunningham said he
is looking forward to hear-
ing from the public if they


Ed Cunningham

have ideas forPSL-TV 20
programming.
"My hope is to be as
informative as possible. I
am open to ideas from
whoever has them," he
said.
Mr Cunningham may be
reached at (772) 871-5219
or via e-mail at ecunning-
ham@cityofpsl.com. The

new building will have
incorporated "green" tech-
nologies, including 75 per-
cent recycled steel, 50 per-
cent recycled aluminum,
unbleached paper facings
that have recycled and syn-
thetic gypsum cores, other
gypsum board products
made .from 100 percent
recycled materials and
asphalt-free pavements.
"We realize that if we want
the development communi-
ty to embrace green tech-
nologies, then we should
lead by example," said Mr.
Anderson.
"In addition to trying to
incorporate green tech-
nologies in all of our new
buildings, we're also look-
ing to retrofit existing
buildings when we have
the funding available," he
said.
The building will have
the capacity to hold 750
special needs citizens in an
emergency situation.
When not in use as a spe-
cial needs shelter, the
building will be used as an
auditorium for events such
as graduations, meetings
and community events.
The building will be able to
accommodate up to 2,000
people for such events,
and will .include a gym
with a NCAA regulation
basketball court, kitchen,
laundry rooms, restrooms
and showers. The second
floor of the building will
house Park and Recreation
offices.
Mr. Anderson said the
showers, restroom and
kitchen will be accessible
for special needs residents.
"In addition, it will have
a small emergency room,
so if someone should have
a problem they will go to
that emergency room,
which will be adjacent to a
rescue truck. So once the


storm has passed, we can
take them to a medical
facility," said Mr. Ander-
son.
Less than ten percent of
the cost of the building will
come from St. Lucie oun-
ty's general fund. The
remainder of the costs will
be funded through insur-
ance, .the :Federal Emer-
gency Management
Agency and state grants.

Residents can learn more
about green building tech-
nologies by attending the
Treasure Coast Green Con-
ference on Thurs., Oct. 18,
from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the

VOICES FOR THE CHILDREN

OF THE TREASURE COAST, INC

Mission Statement: To recruit and retain volunteers in the name of the abused and neg-
lected children of the Nineteenth Judicial Circuit.. In conjunction, support and collaborate
with the Guardian Ad Litem Program to further the delivery of advocacy to the program it
represents. Now accepting donations and volunteers!
Volunteers with program can help reduce gang membership
Last year, I wrote a letter to the editor about gang violence in St. Lucie County. The
point of the letter was that it takes a community helping each other to keep our children
out of gangs.
Since, I found an organization called state of Florida guardian ad litem program. Its
sole function is helping children in families that are broken. The local 19th Circuit guardian
ad litem program serves Indian River, Martin, Okeechobee and St. Lucie counties to help
children have their voices heard.
We as a community know that gang member recruitment starts with children (young'
adults) looking for family unit replacement, attention that they are not receiving at the g
family level. Broken homes are a natural place for gang recruitment. Our involvement in c
guardian ad litem can help prevent the every increasing number of gang members.
To me, there is nothing more rewarding then being able to help one child in trouble.
To be a volunteer with guardian ad litem requires no special talent or education other
than wanting to help our children. The GAL program requires all volunteers to attend a
30-hour training program that will open your eyes and fill your heart with feelings of hope
and help for the children of our community. Get involved and spend just a few hours a
month helping a child. For more information please contact Karilyn Kann 772-785-7216.

S"ello, smart shoppers.
- Ho peyou had a
..good week.
This week's column has
additions to my spaghetti
sauce that should make
Steven, a fan who lost his
wife, happy.
A casatta cake, an Italian
specialty, tops off the.menu.
Ricotta, the soft creamy
cheese used in pasta dishes,

Love cannoli? The filling

Enjoy. See you next week!

ITALIAN MEATBALLS
Serves four or more
Regular or low-fat
When you use "fresh
ground" beef, meatballs can
be low fat.
My recipe was handed
down to my mother. A
combination of ground beef,
pork and veal can be used,
but we preferred them with
beef. I can remember as a
teenager being told, "There
are seven ingredients in the
recipe plus the meat."
You must count on your
fingers: salt, pepper, egg,
garlic, cheese, parsley and
bread.
If you use regular ground
chuck or beef, which contains
a fair amount of fat, the seven
ingredients still hold true.
When using fresh, virtually
fat-free ground beef an eighth
ingredient must be added to
keep the meatballs from
going flat, and that is bread-
crumbs.
Note: Usingfresh ground
beef Add tablespoon extra
virgin olive oil per pound.
1 pound fresh ground
"fat-free" beef
2 large eggs, equivalent
egg substitute or 3. egg
whites
4 slices white bread or
equivalent of Italian bread
2 medium cloves garlic,

1 tablespoon plain
breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon salt,
1/2 teaspoon black
pepper
5 or 6 sprigs fresh Italian
parsley, chopped or 1
tablespoon dried
1 handful grated Romano
cheese'
Soak bread in water,
squeeze dry. If using Italian
bread (preferred), remove as
much crust as possible. Place

with your hands. Shape into
balls a little larger than a golf
ball. Place on a cookie sheet
that has been treated with
cooking spray. Bake at 350
degrees for about 30 minutes.
Meatballs should be
cooked in the spaghetti sauce
for 30 minutes. Over cooking
will make them fall apart.

ITALIAN SAUSAGE
FOR SPAGHETTI
SAUCE
To reduce the fat, cut
sausage into 3 or 4 inch
pieces. Prick all over with a
fork and bake on racks in a '
cookie sheet at 350 degrees
for about 30 minutes. Add
to spaghetti sauce and cook
for 30 minutes.
Hint: If you use both sweet
and hot sausages, place a
toothpick in the hot sausage
to avoid unwelcome surpris-
es'

PORK SPARE RIBS,
FOR SPAGHETTI
SAUCE
Serves four-five
1 rack of spare ribs
Cut ribs apart between
each bone and trim as
much fat as possible. Place
on rack in cookie sheet,
bake at 350 degrees for 30 to
40 minutes until browned.

be cooked in the sauce for
about 1 hour or until fork

ITALIAN CASSATA
CAKE

This recipe is from my
cousin, Ermalina. The cake
is purchased from the
bakery of a supermarket or
a bakery store. I presume
from her instructions it is a
high cake.

1 sponge cake
1/3 cup raspberry jam
1 cup confectioner's sugar
1 cup candied fruit
1 container (2 pounds)
ricotta
3/4 tablespoons orange
liqueur
3 squares semi-sweet
chocolate, chopped fine
5 tablespoons chopped
pistachio nuts
Beat ricotta in a large bowl
until smooth. Add sugar,
chocolate, nuts and candied
fruit (save best pieces of fruit
to decorate top of cake).
Cut cake into thin layers (3
or 4), moisten top of layers.
with liqueur, spread a little
jam over top of layer and top
with some ricotta mixture.
Continue stacking layers
leaving top of cake plain. Chill
until set, (at least 2 hours).
Cover top with leftover
ricotta mixture or dust with
confectioner's sugar. Decorat-
ed with reserved fruit.

Typical afternoon on cruise offers


variety of choices to travelers


Editor's note: This is the
second part of a three-part
article describing a typical
day at sea on an ocean
cruise.

In part one of this series
of columns, I spoke
about what happens and
what you can do on a typical
morning at sea on an ocean
cruise ship.
It's time to talk about
lunch and beyond.
If you're anything like the
"normal" cruiser, you can't
miss this important event
aboard a cruise liner. So,
you go scouting for chow.
As I wrote previously, you
have options: The buffet
restaurant, topside and
poolside. You've got room
service, which doesn't have
a full lunch menu and is
limited to a couple of
sandwiches and snacks, and
the main dining room with
open seating, which I prefer.
I should mention that
some cruisers prefer to
patronize the many bars.
On a sea day, the poolside
bars, as well as elsewhere on
the ship, are kept very busy,"
as are the many bars' wait
staff. All bar beverages cost
extra, including bottled'
water, and a 15 percent
gratuity is added to your
bill.
By the way, any purchases
you make aboard ship are
paid with a "sea" card,
which you are given at
check-in time. At any time,
you can verify your expen-

Treasure Coast Albert-
son's locations have com-
pleted the 2007 Aisles of
Smiles program, and have
raised, almost $3,800 to
benefit the Muscular Dys-
trophy Association (MDA).
Aisles of Smiles is a food
industry program that
takes place in markets
across the United States.
During its 20-year exis-
tence, the campaign has
raised millions of dollars
to fight muscular dystro-
phy.
The program, which took
place at Albertson's stores
located in Vero Beach and
Port St. Lucie, encourages
shoppers to lend a helping
hand to those affected by
neuromuscular diseases.
Customers have the
opportunity to purchase
an "Aisles of Smiles"
mobile for one dollar.,
Proceeds from the pro-
gram will benefit Treasure
Coast area individuals and
families who live with
muscular dystrophy.
Collected funds will sup-
port the MDA clinic at
Jupiter Medical Center,

ditures (onboard account)
by asking at the ship's
reception desk or using the
in-room TV facility for
checking the account. The
on-board account usually
closes at around midnight
the last night of the cruise.
Very early the morning you
dock at the home port, your
receipt is slid under the
door of your cabin. If the
charges are correct you have
nothing to do. They'll be
credited to the credit card
that you provided at check-
in time. Paying for your on-
board account with cash
depends on the cruise line
and ship on which you are
traveling.
For afternoon activities, I
again I refer to the daily
program sheet, which I
always try to carry with me,
so I know what's going on,
where and when.

activities are much like
those in the morning, with
one notable change.
Afternoon tea and desserts
are served in the buffet
restaurant around 4:30 p.m.
Self -service ice cream is
available almost 24-hours a
day. Specialty coffees and
desserts are available, at an
extra charge, from early
morning until late in the
evening. The caf6 area is
usually indoors in a nice,
comfortable part of a main
deck. Often, there's a piano
player or some other
musical entertainment
available at certain times.
Even if you don't buy any
coffee or cake it's a nice
place to sit back, relax and
people watch, if you are so
inclined. I'm sure that many
of you would be attracted to
the Ben & Jerry's kiosk
where you can enjoy a
portion of their delectable
ice cream (at an additional
cost).
Often, I resort to a nap in
the late afternoon in order
to fortify myself for the
evenings' activities. If you
haven't already found this
out in the morning, you'll
find the shower a bit on the
cozy side. Some folks use
the technique of soaping
down the walls and then
rotating their bodies to soap
down efficiently (said with
tongue in cheek). I'm small,

so I have no problem in the
shower.
Many folks get "dressed
up" for dinner, while others
dress casually. I'm in the
latter group and feel more
comfortable in a collared
shirt, slacks and on formal
nights, a sports coat. I
usually take no ties with
me.
I'll be talking about a
typical evening at sea on an
ocean cruise, in the third
and last part of three
narratives describing one
typical day on an ocean
cruise.
Look for part three in
about three weeks.

Today, with all the
negativity associated
with using insecti-
cides and garden chemicals,
it is more important then
ever to use natural defenses
as a first option and only
use chemical methods if all
other methods fail.
One of the methods I
recommend is actually
using beneficial bugs to eat
the bugs that you want to
get rid of.

That bug's a lady

In Florida, one of the
most beneficial bugs that
exists is the lady bug.
The lady bug or lady
beetle, is probably one of
the most colorful and best-
known insects that you
actually welcome to your
garden. These delightful
insects prey and eat such
insects as scale, mealy bugs
and mites, along with other
varieties of insect pests. In
Ohio, the lady bug has
become the official state
insect.
Adult lady beetles are
domed shaped and they
often have a shiny appear-
ance to their bodies. The
most common color is the


9

Garden Nook

distinctive red with,the
black markings. They also
can be seen with colorings
anywhere from dark reddish
orange to a pale yellow with
black markings.
The life cycle of the lady
beetle can vary depending
on the time of year, but the
average life cycle is around
five weeks.
Lady beetles can lay eggs
on plants, .often where
aphids are present, and the
larvae will begin to eat the
insects as soon as they
hatch. One larva can
consume up to 400 aphids.
They are amazing eaters.


Lady beetles can be
purchased in bulk on the
Internet. They are inexpen-
sive and can provide some
beneficial results. Some-
times, when the insects are
purchased in this manner,
they may fly away from the
area that you want them to
flock to, especially if there is
a lack of food. I often see
lady beetles on plants that I
purchase from local nurs-
eries. Often, the nurseries
themselves will use this
method to help keep insects
in check.
In short, this could be a
fun way to experiment to
see how well this method
may actually work for you. It
could also be a great science
project for your kids at
school.

Pray for more mantis

Another great insect to
have the garden is the
praying mantis. These
unique insects can blend in
very well with their sur-
roundings and are often
never seen because of this
reason.
Like the lady beetle, they
eat all types of insects and
are very effective at control-


ling insects on your plants.
These insects can grow very
large, often more than 2
inches in length. I have on
occasion seen them in my
own gardens around the
.house.
They are the state insect
of Connecticut and protect-
ed in that state.
If you spot any of these
beneficial insects in your
yard or garden,!take care
not to kill or disturb them.
Remember, they are your
friends and will help to eat
many of the insects that you
have to normally kill with
chemical pesticides.

mation on natural ways to
control insects in gardens,
you can refer to my article

When the aneurysm
reaches 4.5 centimeters,
Dr. Loyola advises the
patient as to whether or
not they are a candidate
for the new procedure.
"The biggest benefit is
that it is much less inva-
sive than the traditional
procedure, where the
whole abdomen is. opened
up and the hospital stay is
anywhere from seven to 10
days," said Dr. Loyola.
"In those cases, there is
much more pain, a mini-
mal intensive care unit
stay of one to two days,
and the potential for com-
plications is much
greater," he said.
Dr. Loyola also said post-
operative recovery from
the traditional procedure
is "brutal."
"I have seen people take
as long as three months to
recover, until they feel
human again," lie salad.

With the new procedure,
called endoluminal exclu-
sion, or, endovascular
treatment, two cuts are
made in the patient's
groin. Although the opera-
tive time is about the same
as the traditional surgical
procedure, the risk of
physiological changes
from the invasive surgery
is much greater.
"But with the new proce-
dure, all you have are little
cuts in the groin, you put
the device in the aneurysm
and you essentially
exclude the aneurysm,,"
said Dr. Loyola, who
likened the device to a
stent.
"The aneurysm stays
there, but with the device
inside, it no longer pulses.
Each time an aneurysm
pulses, it has a chance to
rupture. As it gets bigger,
the wall gets thinne.i, he
said.
A shorter recovery time is
another benefit of the


~k"21


endovascular procedure.
"The entire hospital stay
is only one to two days and
by the end of the first
week, patients are ready to
do what they norinally do."
Dr. Loyola said because
the endovascular treat-
ment is less invasive, he is
able to treat people whom
he would not normally
consider for the operation
because the risk, due to
other factors such as lung
and heart problems, would
be too great.
"A lot of people are able
to be operated on now,
whereas before you would
tell them, 'Look, it's just
too risky,'" he said.
Dr. Loyola said
aneurysms can be genetic,
or caused by heart disease,
hypertension, diabetes or
smoking.
"Smoking is a huge risk
factor for aneurysms. Peo-
ple think of smoking as the
cause of lung cancer, but
there are so many other

problems that go along
with it," said Dr. Loyola.
Mr. Ronaldes said he had
three brothers, and two of
them had aneurysms.
"I told my cardiologist
one day when I was just
getting a check up, so they
did a test and found I had
one, too. They watched it
for two or three years and
then had to operate," he
said.
Mr. Ronaldes' cardiolo-
gist referred him to Dr.
Loyola.
. "I was impressed the very
first time I met him," said
Mr. Ronaldes.
Once the endovascular
procedure is completed,
the patient is rechecked at
six weeks, six months and
then annually thereafter,
'to make sure the aortic
device doesn't migrate or
change, requiring addi-
tional medical interven-
tion. However, Dr. Loyola
said in the majority of
cases, that does not occur.
Mr. Ronaldes, just a week
after his endovascular pro-
cedure, has only one regret
about his recovery from
the new procedure.
, My son came from Con-
necticut to visit with me.
The two of us have brand
new motorcycles sitting in
the garage, and we could-
n't ride them while he was
here," he said.

Fascinating things found on



Hometown News' Web site


ne question that I
am frequently
asked is "Where can
someone obtain past
columns?"
Sometimes people
remember a particular
subject matter I covered a
while ago, or maybe they
missed an issue.
Often I will get these
requests from people
asking me to e-mail them
a copy of a past column.
In just about every case,
I find the people asking
are surprised to learn that
Hometown News has a Web
site with an extensive
archive of past columns.
Let's take a look.
Fire up your Web brows-
er and visit www.myhome-
townnews.net and take a
look around, If you enjoy
the print version of this
valuable resource then you
are going to love what you
find online.
Once you get to the
home page, you will see
links along the top that
will take you to the classi-
fied section, information
about working for Home-
town News, rack locations
(a great way to find a copy
in your area), a way to
contact the paper and
links for advertising
information and featured
advertisers.
Along the left bar, you
will find news and other
links for articles for each
of the counties. The paper
is published in six coun-
ties: Brevard, Indian River,
Martin, Palm Beach, St.
Lucie and Volusia.
Following these links
will allow you to read the
top stories in each area for
the week, which is a great
way to stay informed,
especially if a story you
may be interested is
printed in an edition that


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This

is several counties away
from you.
Below the county news
link list you will find links
to all of the feature
columns for each week:
classified, rants & raves,
dining guide, entertain-
ment, etc...
Of course, a link to my
column is listed as "com-
puter/technology."
There are many more
links than I've listed. If you
have a favorite columnist
and miss an article, you
can find it here. Also,
sometimes a columnist's
submission for the week
may get published in one
county edition but not
another; here's a way to
keep up to date.
One of the great features
of this Web site is the
column archives. Let's say
you are looking for a past
issue of one of my
columns. Click the "com-
puter/technology" link
and this will bring you to
my most recent column.
Underneath the column
title, click "archives" and
you.will have access to
everything I've written
dating to January 2004.
The same holds true for
all the regular columnists.
Looking for one of
Arlene Borg's recipes?
Click the "cooking/food"


link and then "archives"
under Arlene's name and
they're all there.
The right bar on the

information, a mailing list,
calendar, a search engine
and even a "streaming"
radio hour RSS news feed.
If you haven't already, I
invite you to take a few
moments to log onto
Hometown News at
www. myhometownnews. n
et and have a good look
around. The Web master
who runs the site has, in
my opinion, done an
awesome job of tying
together all the editions of
Hometown News into one


comprehensive site that is
easy to navigate and has
something for everyone.
My congratulations to him
(or her or them). They've
done a great job pulling it
(and keeping it) together.

Just a reminder: I will

Rants & Raves
From page'A7


tainly he or she is well able
to get around. Is the diatribe
because the complainer
wanted to use (abuse) the
parking space but never got
there first?
I really do feel that the com-
plainer has spent too much
time eyeing, studying, snoop-
ing, judging, etc., when there
are far better things to do with
one's time.
In conclusion, if the parking
spots are not being used by
handicapped persons or their
driver, the complainer should
first discuss it with a police
officer.
It is my belief that, in some
cities, police officers do not
issue tickets in other than city-
owned parking lots.
Your complainer should fol-
low one of the golden rules:
MYOB!

War support doesn't
make sense

This is in response to rant
"U.S. must show resolve in
Iraq or war won't end."
According to this rant, the
Iraqis won't stand up because
the U.S. forces might leave.
(Using) that logic, the only
way they will stand up is if we,
stay forever and the Iraqis
know we will stay forever,
So,to end the war we must
show resolve. To show resolve,
we can never leave.
But if we never leave, the
war will never end.
This is typical of the reason-
ing of those supporting the
war.,
Let's agree that at this point-
nobody knows what to do
next. Bush, Cheney, etc., got
us into this mess by doing the
wrong thing at the wrong time
in the wrong place. Now they
want to prolong it and dump
it on the next administration,
so then they can go on the lec-
ture circuit and pull in the big
bucks.
Whatever the solution is, it's
not staying forever.
By the way, it was the elder
Bush who encouraged' the
Kurds and Shiites to rise up
against Saddam, and who let
them be slaughtered by the
Republican Guard.

Stop letting kids get
free Internet accounts
There needs to 'be some
kind of way to make sure that"
underage children can't open
a (free) Internet account with-
out their parents permission.
For the past week, I have
been in contact with Hotmail,
Yahoo, AOL, Myspace.com
and Myyearbook.com just to
name the most popular ones.
It is not right to let a minor
open an account ... when the
Internet is like the:wild, wild
West. It seems like anything
goes, just to make a dollar.
I have opened an account'
with Myspace.com and,
Myyearbook.com just to see
what goes on. Well, the only
people who want to be friends
are cyber sick-o's.
Let us go back to (getting)
parent's permission.
I spent hours on the phone,
hours writing letters and
hours sending faxes. For
what? To remove my child
from these bad neighbor-
hoods just to find out she has
made new screen names now.
I know a lot of you are
thinking I must be computer
illiterate. Just to let you all
know. I cut my digital teeth
writing programs for the U.S.
Army Signal Corp., have a GPA
of 3.86 and am a 45-year-old
student (going) for my Ph.D.
in digital security administra-
tion.
I have done all I can do here
at home. Nowadays your chil-
dren can (use) a friend's, a
school's and a library's com-
puter.
We all need to speak up as
concerned U.S. citizens and
put more regulations on these
companies for our children's
safety.
Editor's note: Many child
experts suggest parents use dis-
cipline to set ground rules on .
acceptable Internet usage,
including not allowing their
children to use a home com-
puter that is not monitored
and explaining to the adult


parents offriends that expecta-
tion.

'War on terror' not
making us safer

Can someone please
explain to me how we can still
justify our administration's
current policy on the "war on
terror" when (its) own hired
gun, Gen. (David) Petraeus,
can't even submit, when ques-
tioned by the Senate, that our
current strategy is in fact mak-
ing the country safer?
Correct me if I am wrong,
but isn't that the entire pur-
pose, or at least the current
rhetoric that the Republicans
are pushing?

Tragedy and money

I so agree with "Shouldn't
get money because of tragic
events."
Let's not forget about the
people in the Oklahoma


bombing families, too.

Union strikers should
be thankful

Those (union) guys sitting
on their butts in the shade (on
strike) must have some reality
issues.
What are they thinking?
With people's lives, at stake
depending on their jobs, and
with the entire space industry
going into hibernation in a
couple of years, (they are)
striking for more "future" ben-
efits?
They are lucky to have jobs
at all and should be damn
proud to be working.
Luckily, it's not up to me as
to who gets laid off first when
the time comes. If I was doing,
their job plus my own while
they wave the flag at traffic all
day wanting more for less,
they would be at the top of my
list to go out the door first, and
be the last to be asked back.
No wonder nothing is made

Local performers, producer


are making beautiful music


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Port St. Lucie musician
Ari Mendes has a record-
ing studio in his house,
The producer, com-
poser and arranger 'has
become a promoter as
well, working with sever-
al area performers who
have cut CDs at his stu-
dio.
Country singer Warren
Silvers of Port St. Lucie,.
and song stylist Jane
Oster of Palm City, who
has a new CD of Bossa
Nova songs arranged by
the Brazilian-born Mr.
Mendes, have high praise
for recording facilit\ and
for Mr. Mendes.
Mr. Silvers, who .says
that Mr. Mendes' studio
is as good as any he's
seen in Nashville, has a
story that is a country
song come to life.
The singer-song-
writer's first wife took off
several years ago, leaving
him to raise his son,
Aiden, who has a form of
muscular dystrophy and
is confined to a wheel-
chair. He had to turn
down a record deal
because it would have
involved leaving his son
while he toured.
I 'rwas depress ed, but
I knew I was doing the
right thing." he said. "I
was wanting to record an
album and looking on


the Internet. I called (Arin)
first and found out he
lived three blocks away. I
could bring my son over.
I had no idea the studio
was that good or that he
was that good a musi-
cian."
Things have turned
around for Mr. Silvers.
He married a woman
with a. little girl and the
couple has just had a
baby. His new CD, "Cow-
boy State of Mind," has
been well-received; three
of the songs are being
broadcast on Clear Chan-
-nel radio stations,
including local station
WAVW, 92.7 and locally,
he performs at the West
End Bar and Grill in Port
St. Lucie.
He has been concen-
trating on his songwrit-
ing, and a number of his
songs have been picked
up by Nashville publish-
ers who are pitching
them to country singers.
S "I've decided I can
become a songwriter, but
now, 'if I get a deal, I can
go on tour. Everything is
taking off. God is bless-
ing me for the decisions I
made," he said.
Jane Oster met Ari
Mendes when he was
performing with his
group, BossaJazz.
He heard her sing and
discovered that her love
for the Brazilian bossa
nova, a combination of

The Kaniras City
native is ihot sure why the
Brazilian style appeals to
her so much.
"I.love the rhythm
and the incredibly beau-


tiful music," she said.
"Ari told me that he
plays Brazilian guitar and
I told him that I play'a lit-
tie guitar and that we,
should jam together. I

Bertie Higgins and his Band


of Pirates roll into the Lyric


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Singer/songwriter Bertie
Higgins is a romantic sto-
ryteller, as befits a direct
descendant of the German
poet, Goethe, who told the
story of Faust, the man
who sells his soul to the
devil.
The composer of the hit
song "Key Largo," a song he
wrote to lure a girlfriend
back, brings his Band of
Pirates to the Lyric Theatre
on Oct. 13. In a telephone
interview, he talked about
his career and the song
that made him famous.,
Elbert Joseph Higgins
was born in Bayport, Flori-
da, a sleepy town at the
mouth of the Weeki
Watchee River.
A childhood spent in a
town "lost in time" infuses
both his work and his pas-
sion for preserving endan-
gered wildlife, especially
endangered sea birds.
The drummer, who grad-
uated from Tarpon Springs
High School, left college to
become the drummer for
Tommy Roe and his band,
The Roemans.'
When he tired of being
on the road, he retuned
home, picked up a guitar,
and began songwriting.
That led him to Atlanta,
where he worked on a song
about living in an old


Humphrey Bogart movie.
"Songwriters normally
draw from what's going
on," he said.
"After going out for a
long time, (my girlfriend)
'and I split up. I figured this
was the only way I could
change it around. I wrote
"Key Largo;" we were both
old movie buffs. We used
to curl up and watch Bogey
and Bacall. The song
brought her back. It was an
amazing time. Coming
back from living in debt to
having a No. 1 song is an
amazing turn-around. It
took me time to,adjust. We
got married and had two
boys together, and
although we've been sepa-
rated for a long time, we're
still married."
After taking time off to
raise his family, which grew
to include another son and
a daughter, Mr. Higgins
formed his Band of Pirates
some 15 years ago.
They play Las Vegas a
lot and have spent time in
Branson, Mo., which he
describes an "interesting
town" that may not know
what to make of him.
"When the Pirates come
there, its like, 'Damn, what
was that, Margaret,'" he
said.
"I'm pirate at heart. We
come put as a cross
between Jimmy Buffett and
the Beach Boys. If you

come to the show, we
promise a rollicking good
time., It's our sincere pres-
entation of what I've writ-
ten from my heart. They
will understand what I'm
all about as an artist.. Nine-
ty percent of it is Bertie
Higgins songs and three
are cover songs in my own
style. I'm a song man. I
don't care if it's folk or
opera or redneck or hard


rock. I thought Jimi Hen-'
drix was brilliant. I like
John Mayer and Toby Kei.th
has a great edge going. The
song is what I go for."

some of the ancient crea-
tures as mythical animals.
Others have attempted to
identify them with real
animals.
Genesis 1:21 reveals this;
"And God created the great
whales." Whale is translated
from a Hebrew word with
four additional translations;
"great sea monster," "drag-
on," "serpent" and "jackal."
Now, we understand the
English word "whales"
includes ultra-large crea-
tures of the sea and strange
land animals.
Jeremiah 14:6 says drag-
ons "snuffed up the wind,"
and according to Micah l:8
dragons make a "wailing
sound."
In the bible, dragons were,
symbolic, but if dragons
were more than symbolic,
what did they look like?
The "Komodo dragon,"
also known as "terrible
lizard," and "Komodo Island
monitor," of Indonesia,
grows to a length of six-and-
one half to tenfeet. Is there ;
any connection here?
Could it be a descendant
of the "biblical dragon?"
In Job 40:15-24, God took
Job to the Jordan River
valley, the deepest in our
world today. A river valley is
often formed when large
amounts of water race down
a steep slope.
Once there, God described
the "behemoth," to Job,
which translates to "gigantic
and powerful beast."

DAVID GOODE"
Religion columnist
that the behemoth "ranks
first among the works of
God."
In other words, the
behemoth is, God's greatest
land creature.
It is described, as using
the muscles in its stomach
to sway its tail "like a cedar."
This indicates that the
behemoth's tail was proba-
bly quite long.
Some have suggested that
the behemoth could have
been a water buffalo,
rhinoceros or elephant.
However, the most
common suggestion was
the hippopotamus.
A few brave others, such as
myself, have gone a little
further out on the limb of
speculation and suggested
that the behemoth could
have been a dinosaur.
The largest dinosaur
remains that have been
found have been identified
as the remains of the'
Argenrinosaurus.
The\' were recently
discovered in Argentina.
This massive ancient
creature was 120 feet long,
70 feet tall, and weighed 100
tons.
In adolescence it gained
100 pounds per day.
The ancient creature that
God described as hislargest
sea animal was the
"leviathan." .
Job chapter 41 describes
this ancient creature by
asking a series of questions.
"Can you pull in the
leviathan with a fishhook, or
tie down his tongue with a
rope? Will he keep begging
you for mercy? Will he speak
'to you with gentle words?
Can you make a pet of him
like a bird?"
Acco riding to Job chapter
41, the leviathan had heavy,.

close-set scales and
breathed fire.
Did the Leviathan
actually breathe fire?
Although this could be
poetic imagery, there is
absolutely no scientific
evidence ruling out the
possibility that the
leviathan breathed out
certain gaseous fumes
that, when combined with
oxygen, ignited.
From these accounts of
the ancient creatures that
God made we understand
that He is a God of variety.
From microscopic life,
consisting of a single cell,
to huge dinosaurs, God
created all living things.

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee'.


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


Virtually every car dealer of educe
in Florida adds a charge 10
the price of cars he sells a SOphistiC
'dealer leeldoc lee/dealer
prep lee ranging from $500 much hlig
to nearly $1,000. This extra
charge is programmed into -'

many sales including California but is still
legal in Florida The season you charge this
tee is simply to increase Ine price ci Ihe car
and your profit in such a manner that it i not

wrong. I used to charge a dealer fle 154951
and when I slopped criarging it a lte years

customers Just because everybody else

Now, here is the good news. After eliminat-
ing the dealer fee my profit per car did drop
by about the amount of the dealer fee, but
my customers realized I was nowvgiving them
a fair shake and quoting a complete out-the-
door price with no "surprises". And the word
spread. My volume of car sales began to rise
rapidly. Sure, I was making a few hundred
dollars less per car, but. I was selling a lot
more cars. I was and am selling cars to many
of your former customers. My bottom line
has improved, not because I eliminated the
dealer fee, hut because I was

Titans fall to 1-3
as the Panthers
take control

BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
At some point; Treasure
Coast has to grow up.
Last Friday was not the
time.'
The Titans managed just
64 yards of total offense as
Treasure Coast lost 29-0 to
Fort Pierce Westwood Sept.
28 at South County Stadi-
um in Port St. Lucie.
Treasure Coast (1-3) was
clearly outmatched up
front against the much
more physical Panthers
who dominated the game
from start to finish. After
getting their first win in
Week 2 against vPort St.
Lucie, the, Titans have
struggled with bigger and
stronger opponents in
their last two games.
"Unfortunately, we've
had that physical growing
up game two weeks (in a
row) and we have to finally
grow up," said Titans head
coach Bill Kelley. "We can't
keep saying 'OK,,did you
learn something?'"
Westwood (4-1) opened
the game with four incom-
plete passes on their first
drive before going to the
heart of their offense with
running back Javian Evans.
Evans carried the ball 7
times for 22 yards on the
drive to set up quarterback
Isaac Virgin's 19-yard
touchdown pass to Clear-
ance Henderson with 5:5.1


remaining in the first
quarter.
But that would be the
only real success West-
wood and the normally
explosive Virgin would be
have in the air. With nearly
all his passes missing his
receiver's hands, Virgin'
was forced to hand the ball
off to Evans time and time
again.
Virgin would finish the
night with just 79 yards on
3 of 13 pass attempts, one
touchdown and one inter-
ception.
But the constant work
would be .all right with
Evans, who has carried the
load for the Panthers this
season. The senior run-
ning back continued, to
drive the ball between the
tackles for positive
yardage before he got a
break to start the second
quarter.
"He's done a good job for
us all year," said Westwood
head coach Kevin McMa-
hon. "He's what we are."
With Treasure Coast's
defense keying on Evans to
bully his way up the mid-
dle, Westwood coaches
called for a play that would
give the back some space
on the outside. Evans
plowed forward, the Titans
defenders bought it, and
Evans cut to the outside
for an 18-yard touchdown
run with 10:11 remaining
in the second quarter.
Evans was quick to credit
his offensive line for open-
ing the hole that sprung
him loose.
"They were getting up
field real heavy on the


inside plays... my line
made some key blocks so I
could get to the cutback
lane and get through," said
Evans who finished with
30 carries for 156 yards
and two touchdowns. "We
switched it up because
they were pushing up real
hard and over pursuing. As
soon as they over pursued
my line made ,the right
blocks and I was free."
Westwood went up 16-0
before halftime on a 28-
yard field goal by Alex Sier-
ra, but that momentum
didn't carry over to the
third quarter.
The Panthers burned
two timeouts on the sec-
ond and third plays of the
half because of confusion
on the field. When they
finally did get the ball
back, they looked like a
lost team, fumbling once
and allowing Virgin to be
sacked for an 11-yard loss.
Despite its opponent's
errors, Treasure Coast was
unable to take advantage
and get into offensive
rhythm, which is some-
thing Kelley thought was
possible after watching his
team practice all week.
But his team's inexperi-
ence proved to be a decid-
ing factor, as the Titans
racked up over 80 yards in
penalties in the game. And
for his offensive line that
starts three underclass-
men
"I'm asking those sopho-
mores and that freshman
to learn on the job," Kelley
said. "They're going to be
better for it but right now
it hurts."


Sensitive people, especially children may experience skin rash, eye irritation, ear infections,
coughing, sneezing, runny nose, rash or itch, aggravation of asthma, respiratory inflamma-
tion or difficulty breathing. People with an immune suppression or underlying lung disease,
may be at increased risk for infections from mold Mycotoxins. Most susceptible are young
children and seniors.
AIR QUALITY TESTING can eliminate or pinpoint mold as the probable cause. Repairs made
to homes and businesses after hurricanes or water damage, without treatment of remaining
materials, can result in Mycotoxin producing mold spores within walls and ceilings. 0

BY MATT DEWHURST
AND JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writers

With five weeks gone in the
2007 high school football sea-
son, not much has changed in
our Treasure Coast Top 5.
Both Vero Beach and South
Fork had a bye this week. But
Centennial lost and Martin
County lost. That means
some minor shuffling has to
be done. Centennial drops a
spot for the second week in a
row, while South Fork gets
lucky and moves into the 4
spot. Now the question is, can
the Bulldogs stay there?
1. Vero Beach (4-0) Vero
Beach gave everyone in the
state a break this past week,
using the time off to prepare
for a key district contest
against Palm Beach Lakes., ,
Few can forget last year's
game where the Rams built a
28-7 lead only to see the Indi-
ans come back to lie it .t the,
end of regulation and then
win it on Max Feurer's field
goal in the fourth overtime.
Vero Beach came away
with a 45-42 victory, the
biggest comeback in the pro-
gram's 80-year history.
This year, Lakes comes in
at 3-2, but 1-0 in district play,
and will be looking for some
payback for letting last sea-
son's matchup slip away.
2. Fort Pierce Westwood (4-
1) -The Panthers totally dom-
inated Treasure Coast in a 29-
0 romp last week, but ran into
trouble with penalties and
some miscommunication in
the second half. Head coach
Kevin McMahon continued to
say how lucky his team was to


The Top 5


1. Vero Beach (4-0)
2. Fort Pierce Westwood (4-1)
3. Martin County (3-2)
4. South Fork (2-2)
5. St. Lucie West Centennial (2-3)

come away with a win, but, in
reality, Treasure Coast was
lucky the score wasn't worse.
3. Martin County (3-2) -
The Tigers stay in the third
spot, despite losing to Jupiter
Christian, 34-31. With the two
teams trailing them either los-
ing or being idle, Martin
County's position is safe for
now.,
Had the Tigers shown up
against the Eagles for the first
three quarters, the game
would most likely have had a
different outcome, as Martin
County fell behind 34-10
before scoring four fourth-
quarter touchdowns.
This week, facing No. 2
Westwood, even playing for
the entire game might not
even' be enough for the up
and down Tigers.
4. South Fork (2-2) South
Fork was idle and will look to
go over the .500 mark against
a tough 3-1 Atlantic team in a
key District 14-5A showdown.
5. St. LucieWest Centennial
(2-3) Coach Jim O'Neal likes
to schedule tough competi-
tion to test his team's desire.
However, we don't think he
was prepared for the Eagles
three-game slide. After ,two
big wins, Centennial has
dropped games to Westwood,
Bayside, and most recently to
Kathleen. Centennial returns'
home to face Eau Gallie Oct.
5. Only time will tell is they
can also get back on the win-
ning track.

Volunteers needed to test new driver


Have you ever won-
dered what it would
be like to be the first
to try a new club?
How would you like to not
only be one of the first to hit
a new club, but be one of
the chosen few to test a
club, providing feedback
along with your likes and
dislikes on a product yet to
hit the stores?
Your moment is here.
Stulz Golf Technologies, a
German golf shaft company
founded by Andreas Stulz,
with its U.S. headquarters in
Winter Park, is looking for
golfers of all ages, abilities
and gender to help out with
its latest product, the Stulz
Golf Driver.
The company is best
known for its innovative
Nano Arrow Tri-Edge shafts,
which is designed to
eliminate the common
cause of hooks and slices.
This shaft is specifically
designed for oversized
driver heads.
The large club heads
inspire golfers to swing with
confidence. However, most
golfers continue to hit many
toe or heel shots, resulting
in hooks and slices that
continually miss the fairway
and lose distance. Most of
the large club heads, such as
the 440cc to 460cc have a
center of gravity that is
positioned away from the
centerline of the shaft.
This puts additional stress
on the shaft causing
twisting. Conventional.
graphite shafts cannot
prevent this. The Nano
Arrow Tri-Edge design and
Nano construction provides
the strength and control to
prevent club head from
twisting on impact and
transfer more energy to the
ball.
The triangular shape near
the center of the shaft
transfers the energy over
three-edges to minimize
torque without sacrificing
feel. Hooks and slices are
greatly reduced. The shot
dispersion is considerably
narrower. Distance is
improved. The triangular
shape also transfers ideal
vibration to provide impact


feedback for the user. The
result is longer straighter

shots.
Doug Miller used the
Stulz Golf shaft to power his
way to the Super Senior
Division ReMax Long Drive
Championship last year.
Miller crushed drives well
beyond 345 yards in the
event.to capture the.crown.
Now Stulz Golf is mating
this innovative shaft with its
own specifically designed
driver head. Best of all, the
company want us to do
testing for them.
Imagine having input on
how a club is designed, built
and marketed. This is an
opportunity normally
reserved for top touring
pros.
"We're looking for regular
golfers that are willing to


give us their thoughts and
impressions," said Gary
Diehl, director of sales for
the company. "The combi-
nation of a driver head,
specifically designed for our
shaft, should help players
gain 15 yards or more from
the tees. And that's yards
down the fairway."
To volunteer, visit
www.stulzgolf.com or call
(407) 599-0356. You will be
asked a series of questions
so that the staff can proper-
ly fit you for the best loft
and shaft flex for your
swing. Your driver is then
shipped your way with
instructions and a ques-
tionnaire so that you can
give them feedback to learn


from the "real" golfing
public what their driver
does and does not do for
them.
It's a chance that not
many ever get. I cannot
think of another company
that has reached out to the
general golfing public and
asked us to test their new
product before it goes on
the store shelf.
Now if you'll excuse me, I
have some testing to do.

enthusiast for 30 years. He

Why is it important to think about
your resum6 when you have a "good"
job, the economy is healthy and you are
in a.career you enjoy, located in a place
you love? Because, change is inevitable.
Whether you decide to make a change
or the company youare working for
decides to restructure its organization,
you must be ready, and the best time to
work on your r6sumn, make the neces-
sary updates and revisions is when you
are secure in your job not pressured by
the stress of a job search. '
Updating your resume during a time
of status quo provides the opportunity
to re-evaluate your skills and compe-
tencies without feeling pressured. More
importantly, it builds self-confidence
and self-esteem as you realistically
assess your work experiences and what
you bring to the job market. This may be
the catalyst that pushes you to ask your-
self: "Is it time for a career change?"
Often we are limited in our perceptions
because we have been in the "same"'
work environment too long. Our talents
may be.taken for graifed, and updating
your rdsum6 provides time to reflect on
all those accomplishments you have
achieved. Speaking of accomplish-
ments, have you included these in your


resume?
A great r6sum6 has a professional look
with the right punch, personality and
purpose. It showcases your career high-
lights and contains a concise summary
statement positioning you for the career
you are seeking. Your r6sum6 is your
very own sales brochure. It is the best,
way to market your talents. skills and
core competencies. Writing (or re-writ-
ing) a r6sum6, provides you with the
opportunity to think about your career-
path, substantiate your self-worth, and
to reinforce what value you bring to the
organization.
Too often, resumes are the last thing
on an employee's mind especially when
there is no indication that their employ-
er is about make some significant
change to the employee base. Whether
you are still in the job you love or are
ready to move to another career, the
"right" resume is a must have!

St. Lucie County claims rich, varied history


BY SAMANTHA JOSEPH
Staff writer
St. Lucie County has come a long way
from its days of being named for the
mosquitoes plaguing its residents, to
becoming one of the fastest growing
counties in the United States.
A look back at the area's past shows
that after decades of wars and realign-
ment of its borders, St. Lucie County has
emerged as an attractive spot for busi-
nesses and families.
Today, more than 210,000 people live
in St. Lucie County's two cities Fort
Pierce and Port St. Lucie and St. Lucie
Village, said Erick Gill, the county's pub-
lic information officer.
But over 400 years ago, its main claim
to fame was a Spanish Fort on Jupiter
Inlet.
It was this fort that gave the area its


name, said Mr. Gill, citing material from
local historians and museums.
Records show that Spanish settlers
constructed Fort Santa Lucia 1565. They
started work on the structure on Dec.
13, the feast day of the Roman Catholic
Saint Lucia.
Historians believe that the current
name of St. Lucie came from that Span-
ish name, said Mr. Gill, who chronicled
the county's history to mark its centen-
nial celebrations in 2005. The Santa
Lucia colony was established between
modem day Vero Beach and Stuart
around 1567, he said. .
Old Spanish maps identify this area,
which spanned Vero Beach to Stuart, as
Santa Lucia, he added.
Spain held Florida from 1783 to 1819,
but during that time the status quo
began to shift.
During this time, runaway slaves and

Seminole Creek Indians from Alabama
and Georgia, began to settle on the
Treasure Coast.
It was shortly after that, in the 1900s,
that the Anglo-Saxon version of the
area's name, St. Lucie, was officially
used to identify the settlement.
During that time, state and national
developments were helping to shape
the Treasure Coast and lay the ground-
work for pivotal events in St. Lucie
County history.
In 1832, Congress created the U.S. ter-
ritory of Florida.
The next three years saw the start of
the Second Seminole War, which would
last from 1835-1842. ..
During that time, the U.S. Army
began setting up military posts
throughout Florida.
In 1837, Col. Benjamin K. Pierce,
brother to the future 14th president,

In 1842, the Armed Occupation Act
provided for the settlement of the

St. Lucie County economy in transition:


Goodbye agriculture, hello biotech, education


BY SAMANTHA JOSEPH
Staff writer
As with real estate, a good location is
priceless when it comes to county eco-
nomics, experts say.
And St. Lucie County's proximity to
Orlando, West Palm Beach and Miami
leaves it primed to benefit from the
industry booms in these cities, suggests
the Economic Development Council of
St. Lucie County.
Even with a slowdown in the local
economy, officials believe the future
looks good for St. Lucie County resi-
dents.
Larry Pelton, executive director of the


Economic Development Council of St.
Lucie County, said he sees this period as
a transition between the county's old
economy of agriculture and construc-
tion and the future of biotechnology and
research, growing in neighboring cities.
"What we've seen over the last 15 years
and what we will see in the next 15 years
is different," Mr. Pelton said. "What hap-
pens next is significant. We will see dif-
ferent types of jobs emerge."
Jobs in agriculture have decreased
about 42 percent in the last two decades,
according to a study about employment
trends from the University of Georgia.
Jobs in education and health care saw
the largest increase, at nearly 83 percent


from 1990 through 2005.
As the job market grows, unemploy-
ment decreases. "We don't see a consis-
tent .layoff with any industry," said
Gwenda Thompson, president of the
Workforce Development Board of the
Treasure Coast. "There just seems to be a
few more people looking for work than
before."
Although residential construction has
slowed, Mrs. Thompson said she has not
seen an increase in construction work-
ers looking for jobs.
Mr. Pelton said commercial construc-
tion is still taking place at a brisk pace.
"Retail activity is doing well, and we've
seen a lot of interest in retail businesses


coming here," Mr. Pelton said. "We will
continue to see wholesale and retail
continue to grow because the market
continues to grow."
Mrs. Thompson said the unemploy-
ment rate tends to fluctuate, depending
on community circumstances, such as a
hurricane or rapid growth. The unem-
ployment rate was lower in January 2006
than this past January because there was
still recovery work from Hurricane
Wilma in October 2005.
Linda Cox, executive director of the St.
Lucie County Chamber of Commerce,
said she has heard from members that

business has been flat lately, but was
getting back on track. She believes busi-
nesses are slowing down while the state
legislature decides what to do about
property taxes.
"I think everybody is sitting tight and
waiting for things to rebound," Mrs. Cox
said. "In the last few months, people
have really started to chat about a slow-
down."
Despite the talk of a slowdown in the
business community, Mrs. Cox said she
believes the biotechnology industry will
be a boost to the county.
"It will bring a new element," she said.
"Biotechnology is a positive step."
Mrs. Thompson says unemployment
will continue to go down as the area
grows its biomedical research and edu-
cation industry.
"Whenever you generate new jobs,
especially high-paying jobs, the unem-
ployment rate tends to drop," Mrs.
Thompson said. "If you have a real eco-
nomic downturn, you will see a big
change in unemployment."
In fact, St. Lucie County has seen its
economy grow in the last decade.
"I've been doing workforce develop-
ment for 30 years in the area and I
remember times in the 1970s and 1980s
where unemployment was at 20 per-

cent, so we are getting better," Mrs.
Thompson said. "I think there are a
number of things that contributed.
We've had a booming economy through
the 2000s. Locally, we've seen diversifi-
cation of industries, where for many
years we were predominately construc-
tion or agriculture. Now we see a lot
more variety of jobs."
Mr. Pelton said the opening of Torrey
Pines Institute for Molecular Studies will
bring spinoff companies, with higher
pay.
"Tradition, with Torrey Pines, is set-
ting the pace for what is happening," Mr.
Pelton said. "We are seeing a lot of
expansion from local companies, as
well."
Tradition, a planned community in
western Port St. Lucie, will be home to
numerous retail businesses, including a
mall, as well as businesses in the
biotechnology, research and education
fields. Local officials are hoping a scien-
tific community will develop around
Torrey Pines, as it did in North Carolina's
Research Triangle area and La Jolla,
Calif.
"We are on the map now because of
Torrey Pines, and with the partnership
with Florida Atlantic University and
Harbor Branch Oceanographic Insti-
tute," Mr. Pelton said. "I think there is a
lot of attention now on the county by
scientists. There are a lot of positive
things ahead for us."

Small town of Fort


Pierce was key player in


national, world wars


BY SAMANTHA JOSEPH
Staff writer
The residents who voted to incorpo-
rate Fort Pierce could all fit into one
room.
Fifty-four people all but 12 of the
total population cast ballots on Feb.
2, 1901, to form a municipal govern-
ment, according to information post-
ed on St. Lucie County's official Web
site, www.stlucieco.gov.
Emerging as the city's first mayor
that day was Albert C. Dittmar, county
records show.
His government included aldermen
PP. Cobb, L.L. Carlton, A.Y.W. Hogg,
D.L. Alderman and EM. Tyler.
The city clerk was H.I. Klopp, and
D.S. Carlton served as marshal.
By forming a government, residents
took the first steps in what would
become a long and colorful history of
a small city that, by its fourth birthday,
was the St. Lucie County seat.
But for decades before its incorpora-
tion, Fort Pierce was a key player in the
region.
In 1837, U.S. Army Lt. Col. Benjamin
Kendrick Pierce chose the area as the
site of a fort for military headquarters,
according to information published by
the St. Lucie County School Board and
the St. Lucie Chamber of Commerce.
It was during the Seminole Indian
War, and Lt. Col. Pierce ran his opera-
tion from that site for seven years,
until the Seminoles retreated, the St.
Lucie County School Board and St.
Lucie Chamber of Commerce report
stated.
The infrastructure the Army left
behind set the stage for the township
to develop into Fort Pierce, now
named for the lieutenant colonel.
"Water transportation, fishing and
canning of fish were key to the area's


early economy. Pineapple was once
king, but was replaced by citrus, due to
Mother Nature.
"As the city matured, and with the
advent of the railroad, Fort Pierce
developed into the economic com-
mercial hub of the Treasure Coast," the
report noted.
Flagler's Railroad gave the city an
economic boost by bringing new resi-
dents and commerce in the early
1900s.
But the Seminole Indian War would-
n't be the last time that the city fea-
tured prominently in combat.
During World War II, the U.S. Navy
operated a base at the Fort Pierce
Beach.
The city was home to the Scout and
Ranger School that supported the
Sino-American Cooperation Organi-
zation, which helped to survey the
Chinese coast, records from the Navy
Seal Museum showed.
"To help bolster the work of (the
Sino-American Cooperation Organi-
zation), Admiral Ernest J. King ordered
that 120 officers and 900 men be
trained for Amphibious Roger' at the
Scout and Ranger school at Ft. Pierce,
Fla.," museum documents stated.
The city was also chosen as the site
of a training academy in 1943.
Lt. Cmdr. Draper L. Kauffman, the
man known as the father of Naval
combat demolition, wanted to create a
training program on navigating
beaches held by enemy troops.
On June 6, 1943, he established the
Naval Combat Demolition Unit train-
ing program at Fort Pierce, according
to a museum publication.
Today, the city's population is about
40,000, according to the U.S. Census
Bureau, and Fort Pierce remains a
prominent town on the east coast of
Florida.

History
From page 2
to KeyWest.
The expansion helped create a popu-
lation boom for the area, noted Mr. Gill.
But the development that initially
appeared to be a boon for the area also
brought negative consequences.
With the railroad came the introduc-
tion of pineapple imports from Cuba,
Mr. Gill said.
"These imports, combined with fre-
quent freezes and persistent disease,
caused the collapse of the pineapple
trade," he said.
It was then that citrus and cattle
emerged as the agricultural drivers, Mr.
Gill explained.
During that time, St. Lucie County
was officially established.
But historians disagree about the
exact date of its creation.
Some say St. Lucie County was
formed July 1, 1905. But others contend

that the county was established on May
24, 1905, but that residents didn't
observe the event until about two
months later, in July.
But all sources agree that at that time,
St. Lucie County included land that has
since been moved into Indian River,
Okeechobee, and northern Martin
counties.
The county seat at that time, Fort
Pierce, for instance, had been part of
Brevard County, Mr. Gill noted.
Today, St. Lucie County covers about
600 square miles.

I was here when Riverside opened our doors

back in 1982. We've seen a lot of growth

since then. But one thing never changes-the

friendly, helpful, local style of business we

call, 'hometown banking' It's all about

making banking easy. Stop by and see us.

We'd like to become your banking home.
