Mayor recounts successes in state of city address


BY RITA HART
Staff writer


PORT ST. LUCIE Just a
few weeks shy of her one-
year anniversary as Mayor of
Port St. Lucie, Patricia P
Christensen delivered her
first state of the city address
on Oct. 12.
Speaking in front of a
crowd of about 100 citizens
and city employees, Mayor
Christensen said, "Although
we haven't accomplished
everything we set out to do,
we have made great strides
forward."'
'The highlights of the
Mayor's address include:
*Communication -
Mayor Christensen said she
set out to improve commu-
nication with Port St. Lucie
citizens and with neighbor-
ing local governments. She
cited as examples the Inter-


net, on which residents were
able to watch her state of the
city address live, and Chan-
nel 20, which broadcasts all
city council meetings live.
In addition, she instituted
monthly meetings with Bob
Benton, Mayor of Fort
Pierce; Chris Craft, Chair-
man of the County Commis-
sion; and Carol Hilson of the
St. Lucie County School
Board.
*Improved relations with
Martin County Mayor
Christensen said "through
the environment of commu-
nication and cooperation,"
the Martin County Commis-
sion dropped or will drop all
challenges to Port St. Lucie's
plans.
In addition, the city has
allowed the connection of
the western Palm City corri-
dor to the extension of Port
St. Lucie Boulevard, which


Mayor Patricia Christensen
will ultimately "provide an
important transportation
link" that will bring Martin
County residents to the
regional mall expected to be
built in Port St. Lucie by
Taubman Company, at the
Becker Road interchange
west of Interstate 95.
*Retail expansion -
Mayor Christensen said


retail growth has been
"another goal realized" in
ht;r liii-.i y'ear in office.
In additionto the mall, the
city will soon see the open-
ing of a new Sam's Club, and
has already seen the open-
ing of another Wal-Mart
Super Center, a second
Home Depot, and The Land-
ing at Tradition, which
brought Target, Bed, Bath
and Beyond and other major
retailers to the area.
"Add that to the recent
announcements of a Tanger
Outlet Mall and a new Kohl's
at Gatlin and 1-95. Now we
have retail choices, sales tax
and property tax revenues
and many jobs," said Mayor
Christensen.
*Transportation Mayor
Christensen said expansions
of Bayshore Boulevard and
Lennard Road are complete,
the widening of Rosser Road


is already under way and
improvements to Westmore-
land Boulevard are ahead of
schedule and should be
complete by year's end.
In addition, Phase I of the
construction at Gatlin
Boulevard and 1-95 will be
completed before the end of
this year, Southbend Boule-
vard is now connected to
Becker Road and the Becker
Road turnpike interchange
is open.
*Crosstown Parkway -
Mayor Christensen said the
groundbreaking for the
Crosstown Parkway and 1-95
interchange is scheduled for
next month, with comple-
tion expected in under three
years.
'"But I have to tell you that I
am very concerned about
the amount of time it is tak-
ing for the state and federal

Cancer

Saturday

BY RITA HART
Staff writer

PORT ST. LUCIE Most
volunteers for the American
Cancer Society have heart-
wrenching reasons for their
dedication to finding a cure.
Kevin Vorhees and Andy
-Aiello are no exception.
Mr. Vorhees and Mr. Aiello
are co-chairs of the 2007
American Cancer Society's
Making Strides Against
Breast Cancer Walk, which
will take place on Saum rday.
Oct. 20 at Tradition' Square
in Port St. Lucie.
Both men were former
chairs for the cancer soci-
ety's Relay for Life event and
continue their substantial
efforts to finding a cure for
all types of cancer.
"My son, Tommy, was 18
when he died of cancer in
2000," said Mr. Vorhees.
"That's how I got involved
in Relay for Life. But then
you find out there are so
many people affected by
cancer in this area, and they
all want to be involved, but
they need someone to pull it
together. So that's why we
do it," he said.
-Mr. Aiello is employed as a
laboratory technician at St.
Lucie Medical Center and
has seen first-hand how
cancer indiscriminately
attacks both young and old.
"I first got interested
because through the years,
we've had so many kids

Juliet Magrane can often be seen refereeing high school
sports on the Treasure Coast each week.


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
Like most residents on
the Treasure Coast, Juliet
Magrane loves going to
watch high school football
on Friday nights.
In fact, she loves it so
much she walks the side-
lines.
But Mrs. Magrane isn't an
overzealous fan or fanatical
team mom. She's a referee.
Mrs. Magrane is the only
female on-field football ref-
eree in the Treasure Coast
Officials Association, and
has been with the organiza-
tion for eight years calling
games from Vero Beach to
Martin County.
The thought of becoming
a referee first crossed her
mind while helping her
husband, Glen, who is also
an official, study for the
annual test. She figured she


do it because I like working with the kids. I
enjoy it,"

Juliet Magrane
referee


knew the information just
as well as he did and want-
ed to take a crack at the test.
With a score of 86 percent
she was eligible to be an on-
field referee, and jumped at
the chance.
"Most people don't pass it
their first time," Mrs.
Magrane said. '"And lo and
behold they started book-
ing me for little league
games, and I thought, 'OK, I
can handle this.' But by the
end of the year I had a
freshman game. I was so
nervous."
The nerves have gone
away for Mrs. Magrane,


who worked her way up the
referee chain officiating
junior varsity and Pop
Warner games for nearly
two years before she was
assigned a varsity game.
She has worked a full var-
sity schedule ever since.
Being the lone female in a
male-dominated field has
been an interesting experi-
ence for Mrs. Magrane.
Some people believe
females don't belong on the
football field. But her tough
demeanor and dedication
to be a top-notch official
has helped Mrs. Magrane

Q: Are there different types of gum disease? B a
A: Yes. Periodontal disease, or gum disease, comes in different forms. The common ,
types are the following:
Gingivitis is the mildest form. It makes the gums swell, bleed and turn red. It is
generally reversible with professional care and good at-home hygiene.
Chronic periodontitis is the most frequently occurring type. It causes inflammation in
the tissue that supports the teeth. Pockets of infection form and lead to bone loss and
tooth detachment. '
Aggressive periodontitis is a more severe form. It leads to rapid bonle destruction and
loss of tooth attachment, disease-related periodontitis is a result of a systemic problem. this is gum 0
disease that stems from another disease, like diabetes.
Necrotizing periodontal disease is an infection that actually kills the gum tissue, ligaments and bone.
These necrotizing lesions most commonly occur in, but are not limited to, people who have a systemic
disease like HIV infection, or a systemic condition like malnutrition.
Among treatments for gum disease is periodontal surgery, which involves removal of unhealthy tissue
around the teeth. Talk with your dentist about how to avoid periodontal disease.

Landowners file second


suit against county


By RITA HART
Staff writer

ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
Claiming that St. Lucie
Commissioners are making
"an end-run around the
county's own rules," a group
of western land owners have
joined a lawsuit challenging
the government's ability to
set standards for developing
rural lands.
The lawsuit was filed Oct.
12 with the 19th Circuit
Court.
At the heart of the dis-
agreement is how the coun-
ty commissioners are apply-
ing the open space
provisions of the compre-
hensive plan. Commission-
ers say open space excludes
private lawns, a move which
landowners claim would
greatly decrease property
values.
The land owners contend
that a decision was made on
Aug. 8 to interpret the com-
prehensive plan as exclud-
ing private lawns from the
open space requirements,
but that it was made with-
out proper input from coun-
ty residents.
According to the
landowners' attorney, the
county's land development
regulations define open
space as "land or water that
is set aside, open and unob-
structed to the sky and des-


ignated for public or private
use," while common open
space is defined as "set aside
and designated for the use
or enjoyment of the public."
The comprehensive plan
requires that 80 percent of
the landowner's property be
kept as open space, but by
excluding private lawns any
future lots for development
would have be reduced.
"A direct consequence of
the county commission's
recent actions is a devalua-
tion of the plaintiffs' proper-
ty values," said John Herin,
the group's attorney.
Evans Properties, Greene
Groves & Ranch, Kennedy
Groves, Russakis Ranch,
Smith Ranch, Wynne Capital
III, and Joseph G. Miller are
the latest plaintiffs in the
case. All are actively
engaged in citrus, cattle and
nursery operations in St.
Lucie County. Smith Ranch
is owned by Vernon Smith,
who also owns Hometown
News.
Another group of agricul-
tural landowners filed a
related class action lawsuit
on Oct. 8 ,challenging the
constitutionality of the open
space and planned unit
development requirements.
"The St. Lucie County
comprehensive plan and
land development regula-
tions very specifically define
and differentiate between


'open space' and 'common
open space,'" said Mr.
Herin. "Changing the rules
to suit the desires of a
majority of the current
county commissioners at
the expense of property
owners, without engaging in
the public hearing process,
ultimately harms all proper-
ty owners in the county.
Today, the target may be
farmers but tomorrow it
could be waterfront proper-
ty owners or people living in
subdivisions."
Joseph G. Miller is a
rancher who omvn- about
1,200 acres of land in St.
,Lucie County. He is one of
the plaintiffs in the recent
lawsuit.
"My personal opinion is
that we have too much
government control," said
Mr. Miller.
"Property owners have
rights, and if you can only
use 20 percent of your
land, there will be no such
thing as an affordable five-
acre ranchette. In my
mind, when you do that,
you're stealing someone's
*American dream," he said.
When reached by phone
on Oct. 15, St. Lucie Coun-
ty administrator Doug
Anderson said, "When the
county is involved in a
lawsuit, I do not com-
ment."


Night walk will benefit local


woman with lymphoma


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
HUTCHINSON ISLAND -
Several Florida Power &
Light Company employees
at the St. Lucie Nuclear
plant are lacing up their
walking shoes on Oct. 19 to
raise funds for a co-worker's
wife diagnosed with lym-
phoma.
More than 20 employees
will walk as a FPL. team'
called the PSL Employee
Club during the annual


Light the Night Walk spon-
sored by the Leukemia &
Lymphoma Society.
The group is raising funds
for their co-worker, Tom
Evans, a Port St. Lucie resi-
dent whose wife Michelle

phoma last January. The
group has received more
than $3,000 in pledges so
far.
The team captain of the
group, Dominick Gilbert,'
said he was just motivated
to help a co-worker in dire


need of support.
"We're trying to help out a
friend," he said.
The Evans have been trav-
eling back and forth to the
H.Lee Moffitt Cancer Insti-
tute at the University /of
Florida in Tampa for treat-
ments, where .Mrs. Evans is
scheduled to have a stem
cell transplant in November.

tions beginning at 7:30 p.m.
in Stuart's Flagler Park.

Brenda Knight Smith of the Treasure Coast Genealogical Society looks over a chart tracing her ancestry.


Local woman traces family history to 1600s


BY SAMANTHA JOSEPH
Staff writer

"Killed by a mob" that's
how one of the ancestors of
a Fort Pierce woman met
his demise, a 140-year-old
census record shows.
It was one of the colorful
tidbits that Brenda Knight
Smith dug up about her
past when she traced her
ancestry more than 400
years.
"He obviously upset his
neighbors very much," she
mused of that ancestor, who
died in 1859.:
'"A lot of people want to
brag about how important
their ancestors were, but I
don't have any of that," she
said, with a chuckle. "Most
of the interesting stories are
the scoundrels."
Ms. Smith, wife of River-
side Bank CEO Vernon
Smith, is one of a growing
number of genealogy
enthusiasts across the
nation.
Tracing family roots
intrigues Sixty percent of
Americans, up from about
45 percent in previous
years, revealed the Maritz
Poll, a national telephone
survey by Maritz Research.
And the subject is emerg-
ing as a popular hobby, sur-


veyors said.
Powering the trend is the
ready availability of public
records online from govern-
ment agencies or other
groups on the Internet.
One such group, Geneal-
ogy.com, reported a spike in
the number of visitors to its
Web site.
"Our numbers reflect the
same trends seen in this
Maritz Poll," said chief exec-
utive officer Rob Armstrong
in a statement posted
online. "[Interest] in geneal-
ogy has exploded, and peo-
ple are flocking to the Inter-
net in record numbers in
order to find and preserve
their family information."
The pastime has spawned
a major industry, with hun-
dreds of businesses and
products emerging in
recent years.
One company,
Ancestry.com, offers soft-
ware for building family
trees and an electronic list
of U.S. and international
marriage records from
1340-1980.
Its other inventory
includes three centuries of
English Parish Records, and
shoppers can purchase a
one-year subscription to
Ancestry Magazine for
$14.95.


Free resources also
abound, includingWeb sites
such as
www. cyndislist. corm,
www.familysearch.org and
www. usgenweb.org.
Locally, the Treasure
Coast Genealogical Society
has been active, holding
monthly meetings from
September to May.
The group meets in Fort
Pierce on the third Thurs-
day of each month at the
Trinity Evangelical Presby-
terian Church at 5150 Ole-
ander Ave., just south of
Midway Road.
And the Fort Pierce
Library, on Melody Lane,
provides volunteers its
genealogy department on
Tuesday between 9 a.m.
and 3 p.m. to help residents
track their roots.
For Ms. Smith, who's a
charter member of the Trea-'
sure Coast group, genealogy
has been a long-term pas-
sion.
She hasn't changed her e-
mail address in more than a
decade, because she still
gets responses from
inquiries she made years
ago in public forums.
"I've always had some
interest in who my ances-
tors were," she said.
She started to trace her


family about 30 years ago,
and has not stopped. .
For the last eight years,
she's traveled with a friend
to Salt Lake City, Utah, to
spend a week doing
research at the Mormon
Church's archives.
"It's just a hobby, but once
you get the interest, you
never get away from it," Ms.
Smith said.
In recent months, after
decades of looking, she
found a distant cousin who
helped fill in a long-time
gap in her pedigree chart.
Ms. Smith had a Bible that
belonged to her great
grandfather John Adams
Knight, and wanted proof of
his ancestry.

Law enforcement agencies
united for school children

In an effort to eliminate traffic accidents at or near
school bus stops, three local law enforcement agencies
are uniting to target distracted and careless drivers and
speeders in areas of schools and school bus stops.
Officers and deputies in marked and unmarked vehi-
cles will be following school buses as well as patrolling
bus stop areas.
Port St. Lucie Police Chief John M. Skinner, Fort Pierce
Police Chief Sean Baldwin and St. Lucie County Sheriff
Ken J. Mascara released a joint statement on October 10
which read, "Our three law enforcement agencies are
taking immediate, coordinated action following several
injuries to school children at school bus stops caused by
traffic accidents. We are united in working to protect the
safety of our children throughout the community."
School Resource Officers and deputies also plan to
increase student awareness by providing students with
safety tips on protecting themselves to prevent such
accidents.
Officials urged parents to accompany their children to
bus stops and to stay with them until the children board
their bus, while also urging students to wear reflective
materials when walking in the dark. Most importantly,
officials warn, motorists must slow down and avoid
such distractions as using cell phones or MP3 players
while driving.

Boy impaled by palm frond

Three boys were riding their bicycles in a wooded lot
behind a home in the 4500 block of Southwest Wabash
Street, where 13-year-old Jacob Johnson lives.
Jacob tried to "bunny hop" off a homemade ramp
with his bike, but fell, landing on a palm branch that
impaled him in the throat, narrowly missing his jugular
vein and trachea.
Jacob quickly pulled the branch out and ran to his
home, telling his father, Shawn Johnson, to call 911.
Jacob was flown to St. Mary's Medical Center in West
Palm Beach in serious but stable condition and under-
went surgery.
He was expected to make a full recovery.

City Council denies school district request
for purchase of Torino Parkway parcel

In a 4-1 vote during ,the Oct. 8 Port St. Lucie City
Council meeting, members of council denied the
request for acquisition by the St. Lucie County School
District of a 17-acre city-owned parcel of land on Torino
Parkway.
The school district was denied the request once
before, but asked the city council to reconsider its
request to purchase the property, valued at $2.2 million.
The district's intention was to build a permanent school
on that site.
Marty Sanders, executive director of Growth Manage-
ment and Land Acquisition for the school district, said
to council, "Without a school in that'area, we would be
looking at transporting kids outside the area and caus-
ing more problems for this neighborhood and other
neighborhoods in doing so."
However, the majority of council members disagreed
with the request.
"This site was set aside as a park site," said Council-

When someone contacts
the organization with a tip,
they receive a code number,
which can then be used to
receive a cash award if the
tip leads to an arrest or
recovery of stolen property.
The amount of each reward
is determined by a civilian
board of directors.
"Competing criminals are
sometimes good tipsters,"
said Steve Rowland of Man-


atee County, who is presi-
dent of the Florida Associa-
tion of Crime Stoppers and
was in attendance at the
conference.
Mr. Rowland said, howev-
er, that 50 percent of people
who call in tips do so
because they believe "it is
the right thing to do."
Last week's conference
included classes on such
topics as "Understanding
Meth Labs," "Human Traf-
ficking," "CPR Training and
Certification," and "Text
Tipping."
Steve Walrath, past presi-
dent of Crime Stoppers
International and a keynote
speaker at the conference,
said text messages, camera
phones and Web site tech-
nology must be addressed if
the Crime Stopper organiza-
tions are to remain relevant.
"We need to evolve and
adapt our thinking and
practices to better match
Generation X and the Mil-
lennium generations com-
ing up," Mr. Walrath said.
"We need to integrate new
technologies and also devel-
op networks. The idea that
we only deal with a close lit-
tle group of our cronies and
do what we want those
days are gone now. The
newer generations do things


as a team, not as individu-
als."
Mr. Walrath, who travels
internationally speaking to
crime stopper organiza-
tions, said the Treasure
Coast Crime Stoppers did a
"super job" of hosting the
conference, which was
attended by approximately
100 people.
He stressed the impor-
tance of the local crime
stopper organizations in
Florida and other states
keeping in contact with
each other through training
conferences like the one
held on the Treasure Coast.
"A crime can occur here
but a criminal can easily
cross borders," said Mr. Wal-
rath.
"That's why the interna-
tional crime stoppers are
so relevant. We're very big
on connecting the dots and
establishing Internet data
bases, and we can send out
alerts if we know a criminal
has family in a particular
area. So every local pro-
gram is important," he
said.

SAPPHIRES
Sapphire is the second hard-
est natural mineral. Blue is by
far the most popular color for
sapphires, but they can be
any color, including yellow,
green, white, colorless, pink,
orange, brown, and purple.
Padparadscha is the name for
a rare orange-pink variety of
sapphire and it has a higher.
value than most blue sap-
phires. It is still considered to
be one of the rarest
sapphires.

Sapphires with inclusions of
tiny, rutile needles, exhibit an
optical property called aster-
ism. This is the star shape
effect seen in the -star sap-
phires and is usually only seen
in cabochon cuts.
There is a rare variety of sap-
phire that exhibits different col-
ors in different light. A similar
effect is also seen in
Alexandrite.
Sapphire is believed to offer
healing properties for colic,
mental illness, and rheuma-
tism. It is also considered an
antidepressant. Whether this
is true or just a legend we may
never know

VIEWPOINT


FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2007


U1,40,I.A [w l I II


Got something to say?

Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at

(866) 465-5504
or e-mail news@hometownnewsol.com.
Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous
statements. Statements of fact will be checked for
accuracy.


Use some common sense

While it is truly tragic that Port St. Lucie children are being hit
by traffic and by school buses, don't blame everything on the
drivers, the lack of sidewalks, or the lack of streetlights.
Teach your children to have a little common sense.
It might seem tragic to the kids, but parents could also take
their cell phones away and take their headphones away from
them.
As for the children that have been hit, it is truly, truly tragic,
but don't put all the blame on someone else.
Let us not forget, children are the greatest treasures in the
world.
Safeguard them at least as well as you do you car, your jewel-
ry, or whatever you hold dear.
Do not keep blaming the busy streets, lack of sidewalks, or
anything else you can think of to blame.
A little common sense goes a long way.
Street smarts

In Port St. Lucie we have had four accidents involving chil-
dren going/coming from their school bus stop.
I'm all in favor of the children getting what may be the only
exercise they will get all day, but there are precautions that
should be taken.
It doesn't have to involve sidewalks, as some are requesting of
the city.
Even if this massive project were in place, there is still the
danger of predators. This is always a concern.
Parents must always find a way to personally walk, or drive
young children to their bus stop.
If this is impossible, find a responsible adult for a team effort.
Teach your children to make mature decisions at the bus
stop.
When you were a kid yourself, your parents probably told
you not to play in the street. It's gotten even more treacherous
over the years.
In my neighborhood, school busses pass my house at 5 a.m.
Although most who are heading out at that hour are teens, it is
still a potential problem for those walking the street.
Most are disciplined, but the idea of a driver seeing you is
folly. A pedestrian-will see the headlights of the car long before
the driver is aware of them in the road.
It isn't the time to play chicken with a two-ton vehicle. The
vehicle will win, and you will definitely lose.
The overwhelming problem that I see wrong is that many
students and parents walk on the wrong side of the road.
This is important, you must face oncoming traffic.
I repeat, face the oncoming traffic. Walk on the left side of the
street.
The latest skirmish resulting in a potentially serious incident
happened on my street. !
A mother and her two children were walking to the bus stop.
A lady heading east, into the sun was blinded by the sun, and
struck the mother with the outer mirror of the car. '
The mother was spun by the impact, but suffered-no serious
injuries to her leftupper arm ..
All matters er re resolved by the Port St. Lucie police.
The Channel 5 news reporter gave an account that the moth-
er was given a citation for, "going against the flow of traffic."
No, this cub reporter couldn't have gotten it right. I'm sure the
officer had it right. The mother had her back to traffic, and thus
she was hit on the left arm.
While I was taking the trash out, a senior getting some walk-
ing in, greeted me and continued his walk onthe wrong side of
the street.
Be safe, and don't take anything for granted.
Newcomer's guide

Before the Hometown News printed the newcomer's
guide. for St. Lucie County I wish you had gotten your
facts straight.
YOU have a downtown post office station listed at 500
Orange Ave.
That has not been there in years.
Under veteran's affairs, you have the St. Lucie County
Courthouse at Northwest Country Club Drive listed.
It is no longer there. It hasn't been there for a long time.
Also, the telephone number is wrong.
They are now at the St. Lucie County Annex, and the
phone number is (772) 337-5670,
They are also on the corner of Avenue D and Seventh
Street in Fort Pierce.
One that you left out is the Fort Pierce Veteran's Memor-
ial Park.
It has been there for a good number of years, it is one of
the oldest parks
There was nothing said about that.

Editor's note: The Downtown Post Office at 500 Orange
Avenue is no longer in use. It was listed on the National
Register of Historic Places in 2002.
The Veteran's Affairs offices are located at the St. Lucie
County Walton Road Annex Building, 1664 S.E. Walton
Road, in Port-St. Lucie, or the St. Lucie County Community
Services Building, 437N. Seventh St., in Fort Pierce. To con -
tact either office, call (772) 337-5670. ,
Fort Pierce Veterans Memorial Park is located at 600 N.
Indian River Drive in Fort Pierce.,
Hometown News thanks the caller and regrets the
errors.


Animal registration
\ .
I read in the local paper that animal registration tags are now
ready, as registration is now required.
I called, and even though my three pets have been spayed
and/or neutered, see a veterinarian at least once a year, and
have a microchip I still have to go get a tag, or pay a $100 fine.
Welcome to St. Lucie County.
There is no provision at all for providing records of spaying or
neutering, micro chipping, or annual visits to waive the fee.
I asked what the purpose of the registration was, and was told
it was to pay for a spay/neuter clinic.
Personally, I think it is to provide more money for this city's
ridiculous projects.
Perhaps if all responsible pet owners called the city commis-
sioners, or county commissioners they might get some rational
reprieve.
It is doubtful, though.

Dog and cat licensing

I am an employee of St. Lucie County.
As for the dog and cat licensing issue, I would like to know
why the city of Fort Pierce and the city of Port St. Lucie are
excluded.
I travel the county, and I see a lot more animals in the down-
town areas than I see in unincorporated areas.
We have a county garage that feeds about 15 cats at about
5:30 a.m. every day at the maintenance barn fuel island.
All of the issues that are put on the unincorporated areas for
non-neutered pets need to be addressed just like every other
issue.
Why are these cities eliminated from this taxing bill to help
pay for neutering and spaying?
If they have no way of doing it fairly, they shouldn't be doing it
at all.

Flooding problems

This is about an ongoing problem. I have lived here in Port St.
Lucie for 15 years, and it has never changed.
It is about the flooding onWalton Road and U.S. 1.
Every time we have a rain it floods. Every time it pours it
floods. '
No one does anything about it. They put up barricades to
help people drive through the flooding in order to save lives,
and the barricades are knocked down.
No one picks them.up, and no one addressed the problem.,
The company that puts these barricades down is responsible
for them. They get paid by the day for each barricade. They are
responsible for maintaining them.
Our local and county police office s drive e around them, pay
no attention to them, and do not try to direct traffic.
This is a tragic accident waiting to.happen, and then it is
going to be too late. b d a ou
Something needs to be done about this, and be done fast.-
This has been going on far, far too long.

Channel 20: 'No one is really interested'

I would like to voice my opinion on Por St. Lucie Channel 20.
They are now going to be expanding that department, and
adding more filming. They are tr ng to include more filming of
city employees.
First of all, I think city employees should be doing their job.
That's what they are getting paid for, not being filmed.
Second, I think that Channel 20 should have been cut a long
time ago. We are trying to impose budget cuts. I don't think that
it is a department that is absolutely necessary to the city.
When the city first started there wasn't really any type of com-
munication because there weren't many people living in the
town. They came up with that idea so that people who didn't go
to the meetings, or that lived too far away, were able to see what
was going on.
Now it is easy to get to, and people don't really want to go
there anyway.
They have a big meeting hall that isn't even filled half of the
time.
Let's face it, out of all die people living in Port St. Lucie how
many, even once a week, spend an hour watching that pro-
gram?
No one is really interested.
If they want to know what's going on, they can see it in the
news. They don't have to see it on TV
I pay for my services, not to watch that on TV
If you are that interested, go down to the meeting hall, fill up
that room, and watch what is going on.


It's a lot of wasted taxpayer's money right now when we are in
a big budget cut.
It's a department where a lot of people are getting paid very
good money hourly, and if they work overtime, look at what
they get paid.
They go out to these outings, go to festivals and parades, and
it is all overtime for them.
For someone who is getting paid $20 an hour, think about
how much that is when they get paid time and a half, or double
time.
I think the mayor should start thinking about cutting back.
She should start pulling in her belt like everyone else has to, and
start watching howyou spend our money; and on what.
Advance things, make things larger, promote people, but do it
where it is really needed, not for entertainment.
Mayor, wake up

This is about the proposed expansion of the Port St. Lucie TV
Channel 20 department.
I think that is a department that should be cut out completely,
or should be downsized.
I don't think half of the stuff that is broadcast is of either an
urgent or important nature that people have to see it onTV
A lot of it is total nonsense. There is a lot of useless stuff to the
residents, and we are paying for that department, .the equip-
ment, and those people.
If they want to continue to have it, it shouldbe downsized to
just the main important things of the city. It should how be full
of the garbage stuff that they keep showing.
I don't think the city employees should be involved in being
videotaped and being put on TV That is time that is being taken
away from their regular jobs and positions at which I am sure
they are being paid avery nice salary.
Mayor, start waking up.
You are a female. I know females don't think as realistically as
men a lot of the time, but start pulling in your belt, and do what
is best for the city. '
If you don't, you may find at the next election that you may
not be sitting in that seat.

What about cutting back?

This is iiregard to some of the functions that the city is put-
ting on. .
I thought a couple of months ago the city of Port St. Lucie was
supposed to seriously start cutting down on budget spending,
and other things that they have been doing.
One of die things they were to begin doingwas to stop a lot of
the functions that were going on that were really unnecessary.
Some of those things are parades, park things, Oktoberfest,
the Christmas parade, and things like that.
OK. Let's get to that; They had about a handful, at most 100,
people that may have called or e-mailed right after that was
brought up saying, "How can we do without that for our chil-
dren'?
The point is, you don't need to have to have two things One
thihg would be more than sufficient, and you would save
money.
They could still have a little thing at city hall with the lighting
of the tree, the little shows that they put on; and Santa could
come at the end. .
: he don't have to also have the big parade With all of the
expenses it incurred, costing the city money.
The employees that are there all day helping out with the
parade and the fireworks cost the taxpayers money.
If having the city hall event isn't enough to satisfy everyone,
then I would say take your children to the mall. Take them
wherever else you want to let them see Santa.
I think it is a little bit selfish of the council to approve both
things for the holidays.
To go ahead with this expense for just a handful of people, or
more, compared with everyone else in the city that would have
.rather cut back because we are trying to save money doesn't
seem right.
Again, it's always very easy when it is somebody else's money
you are spending.
Evidently the majority of residents' true opinion doesn't mat-
ter. They are only going by what a quarter of the people say, not
the half, or more, of the people in this city who really want
things done.
Mayor Pat Christensen, good luck to you. I hope you enjoy
the years you have in office, because I doubt very much that you
will be in next year. ."
You need to think realistically, and show the people of Port St.
Lucie that you are really serious about straightening out the city.

Rants & Raves
From page A6

Response to 'Stay out of the street'

I have lived in Port St. Lucie for six years now.
I read the Hometown News and love it, but after reading the
rant "Stay out of the street," I feel I have to respond.
In many places there are no sidewalks in Port St. Lucie, and
the street is the only place to walk.
In the past five days there have been four people hit by cars
while walking to school.
Were they hit by the same dummies that hit the women who
was hit on Green River Parkway?
She lived in the same neighborhood as me.
When Martin County was doing their side and putting in a
nice sidewalk, I must say Port St. Lucie did not.
My husband, a respected builder in the community, went to
the city and asked why two months before the accident. He was
given the run around.
It took that woman being killed before it was put in.
About the totem pole, I drive by this everyday and think about
this poor family and all they have been through.
I am glad the person involved is in jail for the next 36 years. At
least he's alive, she's not.
Have a little heart.
I believe the totem pole must stay as a reminder to slow down,
and pay attention,

A fabulous ranter

I just read the article on more on homosexuals in the Oct. 5
issue of Hometown News.
I'll tell you, that person is fabulous.
If that person could team up with David Goode of the religion
column, I would end up being a very astute student of the Bible.
I think that person is fabulous. I wish that person would
speak some more on different subject like this:
I, too, agree with what the person has said about homosexu-
als.
Love them, but do not, of course, accept their lifestyle.
In my particular belief, I feel it is not normal.
I don't think you have to be a Christian to determine that,
because it's really not normal.
I think the Rev. Goode does some of the best work ever. I real-
ly enjoy reading his articles, and I learnea lot from him.
Apparently there are a few ranters out there that we can learn
a lot from, too.

Pet costume contests

I can't believe the local paper is sponsoring a contest of cos-
tumes for pets.
Dressing dogs, cats, birds, etc. in people clothes is right up
there with other kinds of abuse.
How comfortable is an animal with taped-on hats, sunglass-
es, booties, neckties, panties, and booties?
Unfortunately, dogs usually put up with this, as they are trust-
ing and loyal.
Cats won't allow it, of course.
Birds can't defend themselves.
How about a beautiful pet, or a pet and pet owner look-alike
contest?
Even an ugly dog is better than a dolly dog contest.

The sacredness of life

All parents, teachers, media executives, business people, gov-
ernment at all levels, and religious practitioners should teach
the young people about the sacredness of life.
All these weird skeletons, and other things, for Halloween are
definitely indicating that death is nothing more than something
to make funim of, and to amuse the people of America.
This is a disrespectful mockery of all those who have died,
and.become, yes, skeletons.-


Do you think all those who died in the wars would appreciate
this absolute lack of sacredness shown them?

Oh say can't you see,
we're supposed to be free

I can't tell whether it's more amusing or sickening to read the
moral outrage of someone who has no idea what she's talking
about.
They, says she, want to sing the national anthem in Spanish.
Of course there isn't any "they"; this little festival of ignorance
began in early 2006 when a small group of artists from several
countries recorded the United States national anthem in Span-
ish.
Needless to say it hasn't been at the top of the charts, nor did it
ever represent some organization of Hispanic immigrants.
And, needless to say, what they say and do isn't really any of her
business.
It's still a free country and it's no more offensive to translate
that song than to translate our constitution into French, or to
translate the Bible into English.
Of course she has no idea that an official translation of Fran-
cis Scott Key's poem was commissioned in 1919 by the United
States government, long before the reworded bawdy British
drinking song called Anachreon in Heaven became the anthem
in 1931, much less than that all this psychodrama played out 18
months ago.
More importantly, the right to free speech isn't subject to her
prior approval, her political party's approval or the approval of
the United States government.
That's why they call it free speech.
Remember when we used to be proud to be a free country?
We used to be proud to have the right to say what we pleased
before the self-styled fake conservatives found a way to enlist
the ignorant in their mission to destroy the constitution.
Very few immigrant ancestors learned simple English quickly,
or gave up their old languages completely.
Usually only the young and the second generation ever
achieved fluency.
Usually immigrants congregated, published papers and kept
the old language alive. That hasn't changed.
The self-appointed censor who wrote that Sept. 28 rant can
go live in Burma if she hates the bill of rights so much, because I
have the right to say anything I want about the government in
Spanish, or Greek, or Zulu, and she will have to pry that freedom
from my cold, dead fingers.
I have the right to sing Yankee Doodle in Klingon, and to be
free from infringements against the whole lot of freedoms.we
have been trying to protect for over 200 years against the rage of
cowards, politicians and idiots.

Do your due diligence

If someone is aware of cruelty to animals, and would like to
stop as much of it as possible, be sure to check the Internet
before you buy any animal product, or an animal.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has a wonder
Internet site that offers information about animals, and how to
prevent cruelty to animals.
If you are considering purchasing a hamster, guinea pig, bird,
or any animal in one of the big pet stores, PETA offers a lot of
insight into the cruelty in these stores.
Please don't purchase blindly when it involves feathers, fur, or
any live animal.
Your help is needed, but first you must gain knowledge about
the cruelty associated with the products that are for sale.

Helmet law

I have a comment about the helmet law that might be passed
again for motorcycles.
My opinion is that it should be passed again, because the offi-
cers of the law and the paramedics have to handle many unnec-
essary injuries to the head.
If people would stop and think, they would realize that they
are going to get hurt on a motorcycle.


There are many head injuries because of not wearing hel-
mets. It should not be necessary for law enforcement officers
and paramedics to pick people up off of the road for head
injuries caused by not wearing a helmet.
I ride motorcycles. I have ridden them for years. I have seen
people die from head injuries from falling off of the back of a
motorcycle that could have been prevented by wearing a hel-
met.
In a car we have to wear a seatbelt. It is a precaution in case of
an accident.
Precautions should also be taken when riding a motorcycle.
I still ride, but I have seen numerous people die because of
head injuries that could have been prevented by a helmet.
They might not have died if they had been wearing a helmet.
I see motorcyclists going up and down the road at over 40
mph, maybe 60 or 65 mph, who do not wear a helmet.
The helmet is on the back of the cycle, but not on their head.
They just carry their helmets there, but for some reason they
don't wear it.
I think the helmet law should be passed again.
Novelty helmets should not be allowed; they crack. Depart-
ment of Transportation helmets are a lot stronger. I'm not say-
ing they could save your life. All helmets should be inspected.
I've seen many preventable accidents due to not wearing
proper helmets.
My friend had the top of his head severed. He is alive now. I
was there when it happened. It was a horrible sight.
He had a helmet on that was not a DOT inspected helmet,
and it cracked right down the middle.

Apologies to all fat people

I am apologizing to anyone who was offended by the rant that
I sent in previously.
It was regarding fat people, and the observation I had about
the number of obese people at the beach.
I didn't mean to offend anyone. I just wanted to state the
facts.
Our population is growing bigger and fatter moment by
moment.
We see more soda'and more fast food everywhere, every day.
I am not a high and mighty person. I happen to be a para-
medic, and a personal trainer in Mny other job.
I have noticed in the last 20 years younger people of all races
are getting bigger by the week, and by the month.
This is not something I made up. It is a statistical fact.
When I criticize, I don't do it to be mean. I criticize to moti-
vate.
As a paramedic, I would like to see more take better care of
themselves.
I happen to be the one that has to respond to all the heart
attacks, and people in trouble-because they miss their insulin
shots, or their diabetic examinations.
I am sorry for criticizing, but I'm not sorry for what I said.

A few responses

I would like to make three comments; the first is the most
important. It is about all of the children being hit along the
roads as they are walking to school.
For drivers it is too hard to see children dressed in dark pants
and dark jackets. There is no way to see them.
But, children and children and adults today do not walk prop-
erly.
You are supposed to walk facing traffic, and you are supposed
to step off of the paved road when a vehicle comes.
They don't do it. They have never been taught that.
That includes the poor woman and her child that were killed
on the Green River Parkway. She was walking on the road with
here backto traffic.
So, please, everyone walk facing traffic and step out of the way
of the vehicles.
I don't know if you drive at 5:30 or 6 a.m. when the children
are on the road, but you can't see them.
Secondly, I would like to comment about homosexuals. That

where and when we will
complete this important
road," said Mayor Chris-
tensen.
Acknowledging that the
connection between Manth
and 1-95 will be important to
the city, she said the "critical
link" will be the crossing over
the St. Lucie River.
"Without this crossing, our
residents east of the river will
become isolated," she said.,
Recognizing that some res-
idents questioned why the
city began the Crosstown
Parkway project before hav-
ing the necessary permits to
built a crossing over the river,
Mayor Christensen said,
"The only logical course of
action was to begin the work
on what we could control,


and to continue the process
to get the right river crossing
approved. This is what we
are doing."
However, she urged resi-
dents to contact the "appro-
priate people" within the
state and federal govern-
ments to pressure them to
grant the permits needed.
"They need to understand
the realities of having this
road completed and how not
having it done hurts our
city," said Mayor Chris-
tensen.
"It is time to let Tallahassee
and Washington know that
enough is enough. Please let
your voices be heard," she
said.

Mayor Christensen noted

foot Civic Center, which will
include a Town Square with

Breast cancer survivor has message of hope


By RITA HART
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE When
Mary Dubrowski was diag-
nosed with Stage III-C breast
cancer at the age of 32, she
was devastated by the diagno-
sis.
"I decided I had two
options," said Ms. Dubrowski,
a Port St. Lucie resident.
"I could sit back and feel
sorry for myself, or I could
choose a path realizing I'm
young and still have a lot of
living to do," she said.
Fortunately, Ms. Dubrowski
chose the latter, and in the
process has helped many
women and their families
through a local support group
she founded.
Ms. Dubrowski was living in
Connecticut when she was
diagnosed. Her sister was
diagnosed with breast cancer.
two years earlier, and when
Ms. Dubrowski discovered a
lump in her breast, she saw
her doctor.
"He sent me to a surgeon
the next day, and the follow-
ing day, I went into the hospi-
tal. They had found a large
tumor," she said.
Stage III-C cancer is invasive
breast cancer in which a
tumor has spread to the
breast skin, chest wall or inter-
nal mammary lymph nodes.
In Ms. Dubrowski's case, it
had spread to all of her lymph
nodes and she was given a 30
percent chance of five-year
survival.
However, her doctor was
taking part in a clinical trial
through Columbia Presbyter-

Cancer

go involved," said Mr. Aiello.
"Here at the hospital, we
do Relay for Life, and I was
asked to be a team captain
and then to be on the com-
mittee. Then, about six years
ago, my cousin was diag-
nosed with cervical cancer
while she was pregnant. She
had the baby, but is still
going through a rough time,"
he said.
Both men- are excited
about the possibility of rais-
ing substantial funds
towards curing breast cancer
P at [ is year's W ail,. . '
FFor the first [ime, the Walk
will be held at Tradition
'Square in Port St. Lucie. In
previous years, the Walk
began in the parking lot of
the Rave Theatre in St. Lucie
West.
"I really think it's going to
be great at Tradition," said
Mr. Aiello.
"The main reason is safety.
Last year, we crossed too
many busy roads without
police protection. At Tradi-
tion, we can walk around the
lake, with sidewalks and
benches and nobody has to
be in traffic," he said.
Registration for the Walk
begins at 7:30 a.m., while the
Walk itself starts at 9 a.m.
Crispers restaurant will
donate sandwiches so par-
ticipants can enjoy a free
lunch after the Walk.
Mr. Vorhees said Core
Communities invited the
organization to hold its Walk

"I'd like to take those odds to

Of the proceeds from the

balance remains in St. Lucie

goal for this year. However,

"I underwent four rounds of
conventional chemo and lost

Ms. Dubrowski. "But your hair

she said.
Ms. Dubrowski spent 33

Andy and I also set a 'stretch

$60,000 is doable this year,"

"It's 'till a male-dominat-
ed sport and some people
probably have the notion
that women don't belong in
the game because they
don't know the game, and
they never played it," said
Treasure Coast Officials
president Dick Daniels. "I
think Julie has the person-
ality (for the job). She does-
n't back down from peo-
ple."
Mrs. Magrane faced a lot
of pressure 6n her first few
years on the job. Coaches
would grill the new ref
before games on rules and
situations see how well she
knew the gane. But Mrs.
Magrane, who is paralegal
by day, isn't one to be
intimidated, and isn't
afraid to put a coach in his
place if he gets out of line..
"All the local coaches
know me, and while I may
be a female and may look a
little prettier on the field, I
don't put up with any crap,"
Mrs. Magrane said "I am
not very tolerant. I can
have closed ears if I need to
have closed ears but they
know me well 'enough to
know that I'm not a
pushover."
Far from perfect by her
own admission, Mrs.
Nlagrane is considered one
of the better officials in the
area and has hopes of
being head referee one
day. .,
As much as she embraces
her femininity on the field
(she has black and while
striped fingernails), Mrs.
Magrane says it is impor-
tant that she does not get
special treatment just
because she is a woman.
She comes to games \with a
sports bra and spandex
already on so that she can
change into. lier officiating
uniform arou.id the male
officials and talk about the
game. It's this part of the
job that she thinks is one of
the most important to par-
ticipate in -tbi help get
focused for the game and
show the other officials she
is just "one of the guys."
"You miss a good part of
what happens during the
pre-game and the cama-
raderie and talking about
the football game and get-
ting your head into the
game. You can't do that
when you have your own
accommodation," Mrs.
Magrane said. "It's part of
the fun and makes you part
of the crew instead of sepa-
rating yourself by saying
'I'm a female, I need my
own thing' which is part of
the reason that most men
don't like females on the
field,"
She won't even let coach-
es or players call her
Ma'am.
"When I'm out there, I'm
one of the guys," Mrs.
Magrane said. "I'm blue.
I'm ref."
Mrs. Magrane is also a
wrestling official, which
keeps her occupied and
involved with the high
school scene after football

Police arrest three


graduates in high


school graffiti case


By RITA HART
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE The
young men, including a for-
mer class president, thought
their actions made them
pranksters. Police say their
destruction of property at
Port St. Lucie High School
made them suspected
felons.
Three 18-year-old Port St.
Lucie residents, all members
of the Port St. Lucie High
School class of 2007, were
charged on Oct. 11 with a
felony charge of criminal
mischief involving more
than $1,000 in damage.
According to Officer
Robert Vega, spokesman for
the Port St. Lucie Police
Department, other charges
may be filed as well, pend-
ing review by the State Attor-
ney's Office.
.Charged were Joshua
Heller, of the 1500 block of
S.E. Clearbrook St., Andrew
Swan, of the 1500 block of
S.E. Cownie St., and. Guy
Skodmin, of the 2600 block
of N.W. Hatches Harbor
Drive.
A fourth man, Charles
Forbes IV, who was the
'school's 2007 class presi-
dent, is also suspected of
involvement in the crimes,
and a warrant was issued for
his arrest.
According to police
reports, the high school's
night watchman discovered
vandalism at the school on
the morning of Monday,
Aug. 20, the first day of
school.
Police were called, and,
numerous incidents of graf-
fiti in the student parking
area, including depictions of
male genitalia, as well as
"class of 07" and "seniors 07"
spray painted on light posts.
Additional graffiti was dis-
covered on the sidewalk
leading to classrooms, "for
sale" signs that were posted
in three areas, red mulch
poured across the student
parking gate, a lock and
chain on a gate, bird seed
poured on a walkway and
eight locks which had been

man Christopher Cooper.,
"We aren't the answer to
everyone's problem. People
that moved into this area
are, going to come to us and
say, 'Look, I bought my
property thinking I was
going to be living next to a
park.' I appreciate what the
school district is doing, but
this is my city's park site
and this, to me, is not a gray
issue," said Mr. Cooper.
Michelle Berger was the
sole council member who
voted to grant the school
district's request.
"I do support this, and I.
understand that this is tak-
ing away 17-acres of our
130-acre planned park, but
I think from a regional park
standpoint, I think we can
still make a nice park with
that size acreage."

staff writerI


glued on the north side of
the building.
The repairs and cleanup
cost an estimated $5,000.
A photo of four suspects
from a security camera was
displayed in the school after
the vandalism occurred.
Tips called into Treasure
Coast Crime Stoppers
helped identify most of the
suspects.
"Crime Stoppers notified
us via fax and phone call
within a couple of weeks of
the incident happening and
gave us three of the four sus-
pect's names," said Officer
Steven Brown.
On Oct. 3, Mr. Skodmin
appeared at the Port St.
Lucie police department
voluntarily, according to a
police report, which also
indicates that he admitted
spray painting the parking
lot and sidewalk, locking the
student gate and pouring
mulch, but denied gluing
any locks.
According to the report,
Mr. Skodmin said he and his
friends were playing a
"prank." He would not iden-
tify who the friends were.
Two days later, Mr, Heller
and Mr. Swan also appeared
at the police station,
acknowledging their role in
what they called a "stupid
senior prank."
They identified Mr. Forbes
as the fourth person who
participated in the events
the night before school
began for the 2007-2008
academic year.
According to the report of
Officer 'Brown, the purpose
of the young men's actions
was to "shock the school in
the form of a 'senior prank'
which would disturb the
function of school starting
on the first day." ,
Asked about the young
men's reactions to the felony
charge, Officer Brown said,
"They were shocked. And
they were shocked at the
dollar amount of the dam-
age."
Officer Brown said with
one exception, all the men
charged are in college, 'and
they all have jobs.

From page A9


Dubrowski later moved to
Port St. Lucie to attend nurs-
ing school at IRCC.
Now a registered nurse at
Martin Memorial Medical
Center, she said she received
services as a patient from the
American Cancer Society and
was always impressed with
their organization.
When 'she moved to the
Treasure Coast, however, she
found that a support group
for young women dealing
with breast cancer, and their
families, did not exist, and
younger women did not have
a way to meet others their age
who were dealing with the
same disease.
"I decided to start a support
group called "The Young and
the Young at Heart," and the
American Cancer Society
helped me get that off the
ground.,
The group meets the second
Monday of every month at
6:30 p.m. at the St. Lucie Med-


ical Center.
"We meet once a month,
and you should see some of
the friendships made and the
connections and bonds," said
Ms. Dubrowski.
"Even husbands and kids
can come and meet each
other, so they can talk about
what they are going through,
too," she said.
Ms.' Dubrowski will be a
speaker at the 2007 Making
Strides Against Breast Cancer
Walk, which will take place at
Tradition Square in Port St.
Lucie on Saturday, Oct. 20.
Registration is at 7:30 a.m.
and theWalk begins at 9 a.m.

ingly, is the Survivor Chair for

Mary Krause, executive
director of federal programs
for the school district, said
funds are allocated for the
tutoring services through
the No Child Left Behind
Act, for schools identified as
in need of improvement.
In St. Lucie County, seven
such schools have been
identified as those in need of
improvement: Lakewood
Park, Chester A. Moore,
Lawnwood, St. Lucie, Weath-
erbee and White City ele-
mentary schools, as well as
Forest Grove Middle School.
Children from those
schools are 'eligible to
receive a total of $1,183 each
to be used for tutoring, if
they are receiving free or
reduced price lunches.
"We have about 18
providers indicating they
will provide tutoring services
in St. Lucie County," said Ms.
Krause.
"We have about 525 stu-
dents who have been'
assigned to tutors so far. In
addition, we have about
3,000 students who qualify
for free tutoring," she said.
Ms. Krause said the school
district has sent out approxi-
mately 4,000 mailings to
advise parents of the free
tutoring, as well as running
ads on local television and
newspapers. The tutoring
will be offered throughout
the entire school year.


The parents or guardians
of the eligible student must
choose which tutor is best
for their child. Once they've
done so, the school district
works with them to set up
sessions with the tutor of
their choice.
"I don't want there to be a
penny left over at the end of
this," said Mary Tatem,
director of the Huntington
Learning Center in Fort
Pierce, one of the 18
providers of tutoring under t
he program.
"There are a lot of
providers in St. Lucie Coun-
ty, and so many ways for
these children to get this
tutoring. While I would like
them all to come to me, the
big thing is getting the word.
out to parents that they have
a lot of options," said Mrs.
Tatem.
Ms. Krause said the tutors
may charge different
amounts per hour for tutor-
ing services. Therefore,
because each child is allot-
ted a maximum of $1,183 to
spend on the chosen tutor,
one child may not receive
the same number of hours in
tutoring as the next.

Man is walking across


nation for cancer research


BY ANNE-MARIE
MENHENOTT
Special for Hometown News

Matt Gregory is taking
the walk of a lifetime.
Seven years after his
mom's battle with cancer
ended, a friend put the
idea in his head to walk
across the country to raise
money for cancer
research.
A month later, he had
sold his truck, gathered a
couple sponsors, and
headed on an adventure
south.
His journey has led him
down the Pacific coast,
across desserts, through
swamps and onto the Trea-
sure Coast.
He guesses his trek
across the nation will end
in the beginning of
November in Key West -
more than 5,000 miles
from where he started.
You may have seen him
making his way down U.S.
1 or A-i-A. He plans to
alternate between the two
for the remainder of the
trip.
On. Sept. 1, 2006, Mr.
Gregory left Bellingham,
Wash., just a few hours
south of the Canadian bor-
der. As of Oct. 9, 2007, 404
days later, he has walked
over 4,650 miles.
He grew up in Oregon
and Washington, and for
the first few hundred miles
he saw friends along the
way.
One of the most memo-
rable moments of his trip
was when he hadn't seen a
familiar face for over 300
miles, and a friend's 95-
year old grandmother sur-
prised him on the side of
the road.
"It was great to see her. It
gave me strength to keep
going," he said. '
His mom, Carolyn, died
of melanoma in 1999, four
years after she was diag-
nosed.
She suffered from
leukemia when she was
pregnant with Mr. Gregory.
"We were both lucky to
survive," he said. "I was
born prematurely, and
when I was a year old, my
mom had a bone marrow
transplant. She was one of
the first real success sto-
ries."
He credits the Fred
Hutchinson Cancer
Research Center in Seattle
for extending his mom's
life. : ,
"They gave my mom
twenty extra years. They
helped with the bone mar-
row transplant, that's why
I'm donating the money to
them," Mr. Gregory said.
So far he has collected
more than $7,600.
At the time he was pass-
ing through Fort Pierce, he
had stayed in 97 different
.households, including 30
families in Florida.
He intended to spend,
the night with a' friend of
his grandma's in Rio after
making his way through
Fort Pierce.
He has depended on
friends for support, dona-
tions from people he
meets along the way, and
the hospitality of complete
strangers.
"Florida has been good
to me. I've met a lot of nice
people here," he said.
"Humidity and bugs are
the worst part of Florida,"
he said. "It leaves me
drained and perpetually

traveling south on U.S. 1 and A1A to raise money for can-
cer research.


tired."
He carries a tent and his
backpack is equipped with
a water bladder, and so far
he has worn out seven
pairs of shoes.
He keeps an online jour-
nal about his adventures,
posting them when he
finds a library. He also
,takes pictures and docu-
ments his travels on a
video recorder.
He was amazed to know
that people are following
his travels online.
I "I had e-mails from peo-
ple that were concerned
about me because I hadn't
written in a couple days.
But it's hard to always find
Internet access," he said.
His feels his greatest
accomplishmenthas been
"walking all that distance
with a backpack. And real--
izing that there are so
many good people out
there. People are very host-
pitable. Most people are
decent people," said Mr.
Gregory
His said his mom and
dad prepared him for the
ups and downs of his jour-
ney by instilling in him
determination and tough
skin.
While he watched his
mom battle cancer, she
always reminded him that


if he put his mind to some-
thing he could do it.
He said he is doing this
in her memory.
After he goes back to
Washington, he plans to
write a book and turn
some 70 hours of video
footage into a documen-
tary.
When asked how he

plans to get back to Wash-
ington, he replied, "I'm fly-
ing. Definitely."

CEMETERY ASSOCIATION




Annual Meeting

Monday, October 22, 2007
7 pm


WHITE CITY
IMPROVEMENT CLUB

1006 West Midway Road, Ft. Pierce




All property owners are urged to attend


Most people would
be astonished to
see how beautiful
India is once you head north
toward the Himalayas.
I gravitate to this region
every time I go to India
because it has a deep spiritual
connection for me.
Most notably, this is where
His Holiness, the 14th Dalai
Lama, lives in exile with many
of his fellow Tibetans.
He lives in Dharamsala and
there's no place like it. It's a
town brimming withTibetans
from all walks of life: the
elderly dressed in traditional
garb, the young filling up
Internet cafes, children
learning English who've just
fled Tibet, monks and nuns in
their maroon and saffron
robes rushing to pujas
(prayers).
By the way, everyone who


visits Dharamsala is invited to
attend these daily pujas at the
local temples.
While in Dharamsala you
,might even see a Tibetan
ceremony, attend the Dalai
Lama's teachings, join a "Free
Tibet" rally or have an
audience with His Holiness,
as I once did when I arranged
an hour-long private audi-
ence for my group. I got to sit
right next to him in his home
and I often say, "It was the
best day of my life."
If you go, you'll find that
Dharamsala consists mainly
of three bustling streets,
where everything under the
sun is sold. You'll see Tibetan
incense, rugs, clothing,
statues, jewelry, prayer
wheels, you name it:
My favorite hotel is Choror
House, run by Norbulingka
Monastery.It's right across
from the Dalai Lama's home

and main temple. Chonor
House is beautifully decorat-
ed with Tibetan murals,
fabrics and furniture. Its'
friendly staff has become like
family to me, especially when
I need my chupa (long
jumper) tied for special
occasions. The Tibetan ladies
force me to stand perfectly
still, until it is tied just right
and I pass inspection.
The restaurant at Chonor
House is about the best in
town and their chocolate cake
is sublime, though most of
their food is Tibetan or
Chinese.
At certain times, Chonor
House is full, due to the Dalai
Lama's special events. That's
what I found last March, so I
was forced to look elsewhere.

Glenmoor Cottages, right
outside town. This handful of
cottages is in such a lovely,
wooded setting you'd
definitely think you've found
Nirvana.
The owner was especially
kind, and we enjoyed our
cozy cottages despite the
spring rains, or because of
them.
Before leaving Dharamsala,
we were lucky enough to
attend a beautiful ceremony
to celebrate the Dalai Lama's
long life. It was wonderful to
see him and to be with the
Tibetan sangha (community)
again.
Then it was time for us to
move on and explore the 90-
mile-long KangraValley at the
base of the Himalayas. The
valley always intrigued me
and as we set off, we couldn't
have had a more beautiful
day. One benefit of the prior
rains was the crystal clear
view of the Himalayas
surrounding us;
We headed to Judge's Court,
a heritage hotel, for the night.
Often built during the
Victorian era of the British
Raj, heritage hotels are well
maintained and historically
accurate inside and out.
They're always flavorful and
the only objection I have is
the bathrooms. Although they
are updated, they are often a
bit lacking.
We arrived just in time for
tea in the library, followed by
drinks, dinner by thefire and
good conversation with the
other guests. Every time I
climbed the old creaking
stairs though, I expected
Agatha Christie to appear.
In the morning, we toured
the historical village of Garli,
rowed on the River Beas,
visited various Hindu temples
and relished more sublime
scenery on our way to'
Taragarh Palace Hotel. This

New health news comes from many sources


It's a good idea, from a
medical standpoint, to
use one pharmacy and
have the records of all
your medications in one
place.
That can alert the
pharmacist to allergies
and drug interactions.
That said, it is not
always the most economi-
cal way to fill prescrip-
tions, and if you are
watching drug costs
skyrocket, you are looking
for the lowest cost.
In the last year, Wal-
Mart began selling some
generic drugs for $4 for a
month's supply. I got the
list at my local store and
found several of my
medications on it.
Now Publix is offering
certain antibiotics, includ-
ing amoxicillin, ampicillin,
erythromycin and
Ciproflqxin, for free for a
14-day supply.
It's hard to argue against
free, although these are
not the most expensive
antibiotics out there. If
you shop for price, make
sure that any pharmacy,
you use has a list of your
medical allergies and all
medications you take,
including over-the-
counter medications, to
ensure that a new pre-
scription is safe for you to
take with your other
medications.


Here is some other news
you can use:
From "Healthy Years,"
the newsletter of the
UCLA Division of Geri-
atrics, David Geffen
School of Medicine, July
2007 issue:
One of the best ways to
lower the risk of hyperten-
sion is to cut back on salt.
Salt consumption should
be limited to between
1,500 and 2,400 milligrams
a day; a cup of canned
soup may give half of that
allowance in just one food.
Many processed and
canned foods are high in
sodium. They recommend
asking for unsalted dishes
when eating out, season-
ing foods with herbs and
spices instead of salt,
keeping the salt shaker off
the table and choosing
fresh fruits and vegetables
without added salt.
If salt is in the first four
ingredients on the label, it
is too salty.
From the Tufts Univer-
sity "Health and Nutrition
Letter," published by the
Friedman School of
Nutrition Science and
Policy, August 2007 issue:
Vitamin D and calcium,
which have already been
shown to help bone
health, may help mature
women slow age-related
weight gain. A new study
shows that
postmenopausal women


I'
*i'-'

taking supplemental
calcium and vitamin D
gained less weight, main-
tained a stable weight or
even lost weight.
While the weight differ-
ences were not great, they
may give a boost to cutting
calories and exercising.
Postmenopausal women
should talk to their doc-
tors about the appropriate
levels of these supple-
ments, because too high
levels of either may create
problems for some people.
It is never a good idea to
diagnose and treat your-
Sself.
The October 2007
issue of the Tufts newslet-
ter had an interesting
item on omiega-3 fatty
acids that have been
shown to be good for
heart health.
Oily fish, such as
salmon, tuna and macker-


el, are good sources of
omega-3, but shellfish are
not. Shellfish is a good
low-calorie source of
protein if you leave off the
buttery or creamy sauces.
From the Health Letter
of the Mayo Clinic,
October 2007:
The new shingles
vaccine has been shown to
cut in half the risk of
developing the painful
viral condition that often
lies dormant for decades
after a bout with chicken-
pox.
The vaccine, called
Zostavax, was approved.
about 18 months ago, and
people older than 60
should talk to their physi-
cians about the vaccine.
For those who did get
shingles, even after
vaccination, the duration
and pain was cut signifi-
cantly.

Heterosexuals do not

obesity since a very young

the lowest metabolism of

problems.,

many, many friends. He

Check your anti-spyware for safety before installing it


s it safe? That is a
question that everyone
needs to ask before
downloading a piece of
free anti-spy software that
promises the world.
However, how does
someone find out if
something is safe before


installing some piece of
garbage onto her
machine?
You could go by a
friend's recommendation,
"well so and so is running
it and they aren't having
any problems so it must be
safe." But maybe your


friend's machine is a wreck
and he doesn't know it yet.
Some people install
software assuming it's safe
just based on what that
software promises to do.
It's an anti-spyware
program, so it must be
safe, right?


Just because the soft-
ware you are about to
install promises to keep
you safe doesn't mean it
doesn't come with its own
bit of nastiness.
,Determining if a piece of
software is safe, based on
what the download page

promises, is one way many
people are duped into
installing harmful stuff
onto their machines.
In fact, one of the most
sinister ways spyware
authors trick people into
loading their junk is by
throwing a pop up window
onto the screen warning
users that their "machine
is already infected."
People fall for that all
the time, only to find their
machines infected by
something that they
thought was going to help.
You could spend time
looking at the end user
license agreement looking
for cryptic clauses saying
things such as, "by clicking
accept you are also allow-
ing software by our
marketing partners to be
installed..." This is a
clause that should cause
an alarm to go off in your
head. Reading the end
user license agreement is
often difficult. It's a
"legalese" document that
can be hard to interpret.
Unless you are a lawyer,
you may not catch the
wording where they trick
you into accepting the
"extra" garbage.
You'd be surprised how
many of these programs
get away with it. They
know most people aren't
going to read it, they're
just going to click "accept"
and that gives them all the
permission they need.
Wouldn't it be nice to
have a site to go to where
you could check a piece of
software before you install
it in your machine?
There is such a site and
its' list of malicious "anti"
software is prettyexterin-
sive.
One of the first things
you will notice is how
many pieces of bad
software are named in
such away as to fool the'
users into thinking they
are downloading some-
thing safe rather than
something deceptive.
Fire up the Web browser
and go to www.Spyware-
Warrior.com and then
click the "rogue/suspect
anti-spyware" link. On that
page you will find an
extensive list of programs
that promise to keep your
machine safe, the domain
the software originates
from and comments as to
why that software made it


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This

to the rogue list.
You will find one reoc-
curring comment nd see
that many of these pro-
grams use "false positives
to goad users into pur-
chasing."
In other words, it's a
common practice for bad
software to try to trick you
into purchasing something
by telling you that your
machine is infected when
it is not. There ought to be
a law.
One recommendation I
would like to give you is to
open your "add/remove
programs" apple in your
Windows control panel
and compare what's
Installed on your machine
to the spyware warrior
rogue list.
Should you find some-
thing on your machine
that's on that list, remove
it. That's one step I usually
take when trying to clean
an infected machine.
If you've read my col-
umn for any length of
time, you will know that I
frequently recommend
"AVG Free" as an effective
anti-virus (download it at
http://free.grisoft. com) and
"AVG Anti-Spyware free
edition" (download it at
Sthe same site) and I am
happy to report that
neither AVG product
shows up on the spyware
warriors rogue list.
c That jufact just raises my
confidence level for AVG
one more notch.

be hosting a free identity

Seniors: Follow these

tips to prevent falls,

poisoning at home


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

Older Americans want to
stay in their home as long
as possible because they
feel safe there.
What many don't realize
is that there can be a real
risk of falls, fire, or poison-
ing in their homes.
According to the Home
Safety Council, falling is
the number one cause of
fatality for older Ameri-
cans in their home. The
Council found that on
average 7,000 adults age
65 or older die as a result
of home injury each year.
Falls are the leading
cause of death, 52.5 per-
cent; for those 65 to. 74
years of age. Burns or fire
is the second leading
cause of death; and poi-
soning is third.
Here are some tips to
help prevent falls:
Have handrails on both
sides of stairs and steps.
Have sufficient lighting
on stairs, especially at the
top and bottom.
Put bright lights overly
all porches and w\alk\\ays


Tape small throw rugs
to the floor, or don't use
them at all:
Keep all stairs, side-
walks, and paths clear.
Have nightlights in the
bedroom, hall and bath-
room.
Have non-slip strips in
the bathtub and shower
Have a bathmat with a
non-skid bottom on the
bathroom floor.
Have grab bars in the
bathtub and shower.
Wipe up spills when
they happen.
Fix broken or chipped
steps and walkways as
soon as possible.
To help prevent fires
install a smoke alarm. To
help prevent accidental
poisoning, invest in a
medicine tracker, such as
a seven-day pill holder.
For more information on
fires and poisoning, look
for the next article in this
series.

Drew
From page A14
was once a maharaja's estate
and another heritage hotel.
After a good night's sleep,
we took off for a ride on the
historic KangraValley Toy
Train. It's a narrow gauge
train that travels at about 10
miles an hour. The scenery
was lovely, so we bought
another ticket and happily
rode an extra hour.
Once we disembarked, we
spent the day touring the
countryside and visiting
many of the local Tibetan


temples, stupas and monas-
teries. With the Himalayas as
a backdrop, it couldn't have
been more scenic.
Then it was back to
charming Taragarh Palace
and our last night sleeping in
the shadows of the
Himalayas.
We had originally taken
the train north from Delhi,
but we decided to drive back
instead (flights are now
available). As our van
descended in altitude, I kept
looking back to see if the
Himalayas were still there.
For the longest time they
were, until suddenly they


weren't.
If you're headed to India,
as I will be in 2008, don't
miss the Himalayan region.
You won't be disappointed.

Growing tomatoes a tasty hobby


he fall season is coming
and it is the perfect time
to plant that vegetable
garden you have been
dreaming about.
Without a doubt, tomato
plants are by far the most
popular and tastiest of treats
to pull from your garden.
These great tasting veggies
can be used in salads, on
sandwiches or just enjoyed
right off the vine in your own
backyard.
They are relatively easy to
grow and with a little
patience and TLC, you can be
plucking from your garden in
no time.
I really like growing
tomatoes because they can
be grown in a Variety of ways.
You can plant directly in the
ground, in containers and
you can even get a new
appliance that has just hit the
market and grow them right
in the kitchen.
Of all the ways, my favorite
is to plant in containers. With
container planting, you have
the ability to move the plants
in case of severe weather and
it is easy to relocate your
plants if they are receiving
too much or too little
sunlight.
If you opt for container
planting, choose a pot that is
at least 14 inches in diameter.
You should also check to be
sure the container has
adequate drainage. A
container that is not
equipped for proper drainage
can create negative results
with the onset of disease or
root rot.
Once you have made your


JOE ZELENAK
Garden Nook

container choice, it is time to
get your planting medium.
Tomato plants like a lot of
organic matter in the soil, so
be sure to use a soil that
contains compost or other
organic nutrients.
Now that you have all your
planting materials, it is time
to pick out your plants. It is a
good idea to buy several
varieties to ensure you always
have some tomatoes to pick.
Choose plants that have a
dark green color and minimal
or no dry spots on the leaves.
You also need to get small
stakes to support your plants
once they start to grow.
Now that you have all your
materials, it is time to have
some fun.
When you transplant
tomatoes into the soil, it is
OK to plant them slightly
deeper then they were in the
original container. This will
aid with new root develop-
ment. Be sure to give each
new plant about one gallori


of warm water (about 80
degrees) to help prevent
transplant shock.
Water them on a regular
basis to ensure good health.
Since tomato plants can
often be infected by pests,
use an insecticide that lists
vegetables on the label.
A regular fertilizing
program for your plants is a
must. My personal favorite is
Miracle Gro for tomatoes.
This is a water-soluble plant
food that is extremely safe to
use and can be used weekly.
If you choose a granular
plant food, use with care, as
overuse can cause serious
fertilizer bum.
As your plants get larger
and need to be staked, use
small strips of cloth to attach
your plants to the stakes.
Always try to water your
plants in the morning so they
have time to dry out by
nightfall to avoid fungus.
diseases. Fungus diseases
can be difficult to treat and
the best defense is to try to
prevent them.
Once your plants are ready
for harvest, remember only
to eat the tomato and no
other part of the part. The
other plants parts, such as
stems and leaves, are actually
poisonous.

Robert Cray brings the

BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer


When legendary blues
guitarist -Albert Collins
played Robert Cray's high
school graduation party in
Tacoma, Wash., the young
guitarist approached his
idol.
"I told him that I tenjii)'d
his music," Mr. Cray said.
"He said. 'You play the
guitar, young man? Keep it
up.",
The young man 'indeed
kept it up, and the five-time
Grammy winner brings his
blues sound to the Sunrise
Theatre on Oct. 21.
Mr. Cray actually had the
opportunity to perform
with Albert Collins some
years later, when a club
owner in Eugene, Ore.
asked Cray if his band
would back Albert Collins.
That started a long-term
friendship and profession-
al relationship.
"He was a really nice
guy," Mr. Cray said. "He
always asked if we had
called our parents. He was
a father-figure to a lot of
us."
Mr. Cray got a lot of
exposure on MTV, then in
its early days, and the band
had released several
albums when, in 1986,
"Strong Persuader" came
out.
The double-platinum,
Grammy-winning album

changed his life.
"It came out when we
didn't think we could work
any harder," he said.
"We'd been traveling to
the U.K. and Europe and
recording. Then everything
started going crazy, but it
built a really good fan base
around the world."
Mr. Cray also learned
that another pretty good
guitarist by the name of


Eric Clapton had covered
one of his songs.
They met at the North
Sea Jazz festival, became
friends, and Mr. Cray often
tours with him and has
appeared at his Crossroads
Guitar Festival.
"He's the person his
music is," Mr. Cray said.
"He's down-to-earth, easy
going."
Mr. Cray, the son of a


blues

Vietnam vet, found himself
in the middle of controver-
sy in 2005, with his song
"Twenty," about a soldier
who becomes disillusioned
about the war in Iraq. He
says that things have
changed a lot in the two
years since the song and
album were released.
"People were so scared
after the Dixie Chicks were

slammed for having a
voice," he said.
"People have come
around to seeing the war as
it is. It's people being Amer-
icans and speaking out.
Our audiences were sup-
portive. We got a lot of sup-
port from military people,
mothers, some who had
lost children. We get a good
response."
Mr. Cray and his band
recently released their first
.live album, "Live from
Across the Pond," recorded
over seven nights at The
Royal Albert Hall in Lon-
don, where they were tour-
ing with Mr. Clapton.
"It's hard to do a live
album because you don't
usually spend seven nights
in one spot," he said. "It
was a great opportunity."
Robert Cray performs
with his band at the Sunrise
Theatre, 117 S. Second
Street, Fort Pierce, on Oct. 21
fora 7p.m. show. Tickets are
$45 and $39; call the box

The cast of Shiloh Theatrical Productions presentation of

'Cinderella' rehearses the ball-


room scene.


Finding fun with 'Cinderella'


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer

Editor's note: This is
another in a series of articles
focusing on the time and
dedication that goes into
local stage productions.

The rehearsal for the food
scene in Cinderella, which
takes place before the ball,
is organized chaos.
People are waltzing. Peo-
ple are eating. Two kids are
doing a box step. The direc-
tor is dancing by herself.
Little girls are trying on
long skirts.
Three guys carrying long
links of fake sausage are
hopping rope with them.
They're the "Weiner
Men."
There's a man balancing a
fake chicken on a stick.
People are throwing
baguettes of fake bread.
Vicki Goulet, the stage
manager, calls "Quiet," and
everybody stands still. The
stage manager and the
director are the grown-ups;
when they talk, everybody
listens.


This is one of the fun
scenes 'in the show, when
everyone gets to "ham" it
up a bit.
The steward and
courtiers are presenting the
food to feed the 1,700
guests at the Ball to the
King and Queen. Jami
Dolan, the director, who
spends her days working
with young kids, knows
how to talk to a cast made
up of everyone from mid-
dle-schoolers to senior citi-
zens.
As each group of
courtiers brings out its
wares, Jami works with
them, explaining they must
be "presentational," must -
exaggerate the movements
as they show their wares.
It's about showing off the
food and getting on and off
stage with flair. The two
men who are presenting the
wines to the King must hold
the bottles the same way
and make turns at the same
time; they rehearse those
movements again and
again. The timing must be
perfectly synchronized,
Jami tells us. If it isn't, it


looks amateurish.
We go though each ele-
menit of the scene: the Pas-
try Ladies prance on stage,
the Holder of the Wine List
presents her book, The
Teapot Girl does cartwheels
as she pours the tea.
Everyone must come on
stage on the correct beat so
as not to throw off the
rhythm of the scene. It is
hard work, even though the
food is made of paper
mache. Finally, we break
for the night.
The next rehearsal I
attend is a practice for the
ball, and people are waltz-
ing all over the place, by
themselves or with a part-
ner. We listen to the music
and then Jami pairs people
off. Each couple has to
learn the steps, turning and
bowing, with hands proper-
ly held and dresses flowing.
"Work the dress," she tells
the female dancers.
Soon couples are turning
around the stage, bowing,
curtseying, swirling. Over
and over they rehearse the

Hello, smart shoppers.
I have a letter to
share with you that
I'm sure will touch you as it
did me.
Pay attention Barbara E of
Ormond Beach. This one is
for you.
Barbara wrote about her
41-year-old son, Matt, who
felt he had to serve his
country after Sept. 11.
Leaving a wife and four
children, he joined the


Army reserves and is serving
in Afghanistan as a compa-
ny commander.
When the soldiers return
from a mission, packages
from home, especially
homemade cookies, are
received with joy.
Barbara has been using
my Chocolate Chip and
Oatmeal Cookie recipes
because these cookies,
when packed in a food
saver, arrive in fine condi-


tion.
She requested more
cookie recipes and asked
me to remind you that you
can do something for our
troops, too.
"The best of America are
doing their best," she said.
Barbara didn't tell me how
to go about finding some-
one to send cookies to, but
an Internet search did.
Here are a few places to
get started.

Find a group: If you'
would like to thank a soldier
by baking cookies or
sending care packages, visit
www. americasupportsy-
ou. mil/AmericaSupportsY-
ou/send_packages.html.
This site includes links to
dozens of organizations that
provide packages to sol-
diers.
Adopt a soldier: If you
want to adopt a soldier, you
can visit www.opera-
tionshoebox.com and click
on "troop adoption" in the
left menu under "dona-
tions."
Asking around: Jean-
nette Cram, who started
www. treatthetroops. org,
suggests you "ask in your
community, churches,
schools if anyone knows or
has a soldier deployed. Ask
if you can bake cookies for
their "soldier." Hundreds of
thousands of military men
and women are away from
home; someone knows of at
least one of them. There are
several tips on packaging


and sending cookies on the
site, as well.
If you have any more
suggestions, contact me at
the number at the end of my
column.
Now let's get to the
recipes. Preheat the oven,
because we're gonna whip
up some deliciously differ-
ent cookies for our troops.
I have found in most
cookie recipes that require
margarine you can substi-
tute Smart Balance butter
substitute. It's better for
you.
Baking is precise, so pay
attention to the instruc-
tions. If a recipe says "flour,"
don't sift. If a recipe says,
"sifted flour," you must first
sift and then measure. If a
recipe says flour and then in
the instructions says sift
flour; you first measure,
then sift.
Never shake the measur-
ing cup; that packs the flour.
Sounds nit-picky, but it's
not, it's the difference
between success and

failure. Enjoy and get busy.
Unusual food fact: Cream
of tartar, a leavening agent,
comes from the crystalline
sediment found on the
inside of wine barrels
(above the wine). How did
they ever figure out this
stuff would be great for
cookies? And get this: small

The show has focused on
football this fall, but will
branch out to other sports
like bowling, swimming, and
basketball this winter.
The original plan was for
Stewart to host the show and
interview area athletes, but
he wanted more of a chal-
lenge. Already with a bud-
ding Sports Information
Director program in place at
Fort Pierce Central, where he
is also the athletic director,
Stewart put the project in the
hands of Central seniors
Mike Byrnes and Guerson
Jacques. The two students
produce, edit and host the
show.
"That was just way too
'easy to do," said Stewart of
hosting the show on his own.
"This is a way bigger chal-
lenge for me. To keep fresh in
this business you have to
constantly be doing new
things with kids. It's too easy
to. get into a pattern.
"We had talked to them
about doing some shooting


and stuff, but it kind of
evolved into their show," said
Stewart.
The show is produced at
the Means Court Center,
where Stewart and the coun-
ty athletic 'offices officially
move later this fall.
The facility is also home to
WLX-TV and provided a per-
fect place for the show to
grow. Editing stations, video
equipment and computers
are available for the students,
who spend two hours a day
at the facility producing seg-
ments and shooting others
in the studio.
"It's really very difficult.
Thirty minutes of TV takes
about 16 hours of work," said
Jacques, a wrestler at Fort
Pierce Central, "I realize how
much hard work it takes to
make a show. So when I
watch TV I really respect
whoever is behind the scenes
doing that work. The guys
you see on TV aren't the guys
doing all the work."

helping hand, Byrnes and
Jacques are left on their own
to create each show from
scratch. The process has
forced the students to learn
on the fly and faster than
expected. Because both
entered with little to no
experience in front of or
. behind a camera, the initial
show was rough, but now
with four shows in a steady
rotation on WLX-TV, the
process has become much
easier.
"The ease with which
we've had to pull this off,
bringing these kids in and
getting them into the studio,
it's just been a real natural
transition," Stewart said. "It's
just the next step in the SID
program that we started at
Fort Pierce Central just four
years ago."
Both Jacques and Byrnes
were part-time members of
the SID program at Fort
Pierce Central last year and
are excited to be more
involved this year. But as the
program grows and devel-
ops, they hope the television
program will help it branch
out to other county schools
as well. Stewart hopes to
have more students, both
upper- and underclassmen,
involved with "Over-Time"
next semester so that the
transition into the fall of 2008
is seamless.

Piccolo, Gartin win county amateur crowns


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
FORT PIERCE They say practice makes
perfect, but that didn't apply to golfer Paul
Piccolo the weekend of Oct. 6-7.
Piccolo won the 2007 St. Lucie County
Amateur held at Fairwinds Golf Course in
Fort Pierce, shooting 146 (71-74) for the
two-day tournament.
Piccolo had never played the Fairwinds
course before.
"You don't really have to prepare, you just
go and play," Piccolo said. "Golf courses play
all the same, you got fairways, tees and
greens."
Piccolo won by beating out Joey Latowski
(74-74-148) and A.J. Kroeger (74-75-149) in
a close tournament that came down to the
last hole.
Piccolo had shot well on the final nine to
pullback into a tie for the lead after Kroeger
had taken command through 10 holes. But
Kroeger hit his tee shot into the water on 18,
giving Piccolo a chance to win. The Port St.
Lucie resident parred the hole for the victo-
ry-
On the women's side Jennifer Gartin of
Port St. Lucie outlasted Chris Wood of Vero
Beach fighting back from two strokes down
on the first day to win 160 (82-78) to 161 (801-
81).
Gartin, who is a senior on the Port St.
Lucie High School girl's golf team, birdied
No. 17 hole to go up by one stroke and held
the lead on No. 18 when both her and Wood


bogeyed the final hole.
"First day I hit driver in the water (on 18)
on the first day I played safe second day,"
Gartin said. "The 18th hole on Fairwinds is
really difficult anyway. I was really nervous. I
could have gone in the water."

From page B 10
ber of the Cobras' football
team. "What we're trying to
do is branch out to other
schools and have them open
up a SID program so more
people can experience it, not
just Fort Pierce Central kids."
Added Jacques: "We want
to show Idds that they just
don't have to go to school.
You can do sports while
you're in school. You can
meet new people and be on
TV while you're at school.
You can do this all with the
SID program."
Both Byrnes and Jacques
said they would undoubted-
ly draw from their experi-
ence with "Over-Time" in
whatever field they decide to
go into, after graduation.
Both plan on attending col-
Slege.
"These kids have had such
a great experience with it
that they want to have this
thing catch on in the whole
district," Stewart said. "I
want to take first show and
last show of the year to see
what progress we've made ...
they're two hard working
kids."
"Over-Time" airs on WLX-

Dye course gets a great facelift


hat diabolical designer
has done it again. I'm
speaking of the
legendary Pete Dye, the
man behind the PGA of
America's Dye Course at the
PGA Golf Club in Port St.
Lucie.
Last year, the PGA closed
down its Ryder and Wana-
maker Courses for
makeovers. This summer it
was Pete.Dye's turn to tweak
his award-winning master-
piece. This past week, with
work complete and golfers
at the ready, the ribbon was
cut.
The upgrades are numer-
ous and immediately
noticeable. The idea was to
make the course more
playable for golfers of all
abilities. Instead of convert-

ing the award-winning track
into resort-style golf, the
renovations stay true to the
original links-style setup
that many have come to
love, and for some, hate.
"The redesigned Dye
Course is a testament to
natural golf," said Joe
Steranka, PGA of America's
chief executive officer.
Golfers will continue to
notice the stunning contrast
throughout the golf course.
The natural colors of the
tees, fairways and greens
stand out vividly against the
brilliant white of the
crushed coquina stone.
Golfers will be pleased to
find that the coquina is less
intrusive on shots that miss
fairways and greens and,
thanks to a new irrigation
system, is much easier to
play from. You will also
notice much less dust from
the new coquina on windy
days.
In a time when course
superintendents must
carefully watch water usage
and the impact of chemicals
on surrounding wetlands,
lakes and streams, the Dye
Course may set a new
standard.
"I'm extremely proud of
the results," Dye said.
"(This) is the most environ-
mentally-friendly golf
course in the world." '
The first significant
change to the course
appears on the very first .
hole.
From the back tees,
golfers will find the hole
playing 20 yards longer than
before. New landscaping
and shaping has produced


JAMES STAMMER
Golf columnist


an open, bowl effect
offering players an immedi-
ate view of the beautiful
100-acre "Big Mamu"
wetland. that the course
winds its way around.
Only 50 yards was added
to the course, bringing the
distance from the tips to
7,200 very intimidating
yards. The 14th hole saw
another tee box added,
changing the playing angle
off the tee for some players.
To improve playing
conditions, all 18 greens
, have been rebuilt with
Champion UltraDwarf
grass. Every teeing ground
was also redone with
Paspallum Supreme grass.
The result is a course that
will keep its near-perfect
playing conditions year-
round.
Gone are those winter
days when the course, like
so many others in Florida,
simply couldn't grow grass
fast enough to keep up with
the pace of play during a
busy season.
One noticeable change is


450 trees planted through-
out the course. The area
around Pete's Turn, where
the ninth and 11th greens,
along with the 10th and
12th tees intersect, is the
site for 150 of those trees.
The new trees in this
busy area will help to
deflect and absorb much of
the noise as several groups
pass through on their way
to the next hole or as they
stop for a quick beverage
or snack at the hospitality
house.
All of the greenside
bunkers received new
sand, and the greens on the
second-, fifth-, sixth- and
ninth-holes were
redesigned to allow for
.additional pin locations.
A lot of the overgrowth
along the borders of the
holes was trimmed and
opened to allow for better
views of the natural beauty
surrounding the Dye
Course.
Even those pesky pal-
mettos have been thinned
and cleaned out, making
for fewer lost balls and
faster play.
With this new look and
feel, it's quite easy to forget
you're playing golf in a
residential development.
Still present is the quirki-
ness of the course that
many have come to love or
hate. I, for one, am glad.
After all, weird bounces are
an integral part of what
.links golf is all about.
I've always been a fan of
Pete Dye and the Dye
Course. It's time for you to
become one again or for
the first time. Contact the
PGA Golf Club at (800) 800-
4653, to schedule your next
round.

Vero Beach still



No. I in TC Top 5


BY MATT DEWHURST
AND JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writers

Entering into the endeav-
or of putting out a Top 5
every week; one would fool-
ishly hope to have at least
five teams worthy of being
counted among the area's
best.
Unfortunately, among the
12 teams in our coverage
area, only three have truly
stood out this season after
seven weeks of football.
So, without further ado
we present our top three
teams and those two other
guys.
1.Vero Beach (6-0) After
earning a No. 10 ranking in
the Class 6A poll, the Indi-
ans went out and easily
handled South Fork 20-7.
The score is deceiving, as
Vero Beach squandered sev-
eral scoring opportunities
that would've put the game
away earlier.
As it is, the defense, did its
part holding the Bulldogs to
just five first downs and 111
yards of total offense.
Next up for Vero is Jupiter
where a win will give the
Indians the District 6-6A
title.
2. Martin County (4-2) -
The Tigers remain in the
second spot after a much
needed bye week. Martin
County has steadily
climbed the poll all season
and shows no sign of going
back down. Martin County
should get another win this
week against county rival
Jensen Beach. However, the
Falcons are coming off its
first win this season, and
will be looking, for the
upset.
As long as the Tigers play
its game, it should have no
problem improving to 5-2.
3. Fort Pierce Westwood
(5-2) After dropping its
first game in over a month,
the Panthers rebounded
nicely against Port St. Lucie.
Javian Evans was once
again Westwood's work-


horse, rushing for nearly,
200 yards and five touch-
downs.
Evans and the Panthers
will get a much tougher task
this week against Okee-
chobee. The Brahmans are a
not-so-quiet 4-2, and run-
ning back Lonnie Pryor
seems to make big plays
each week. Westwood's
defense has been one of its
strongest assets all year, but
will get its biggest test this
week.
4. South Fork (2-3) The
Bulldogs head up our bot-
tom two. After several
weeks off due to a bye and a
game postponed by light-
ning, South Fork played like
a team without focus
against Vero Beach. It had
only one solid drive on the
night and several mistakes
on special teams con-
tributed to an ugly loss.
South Fork hosts Treasure
Coast this week, which is
coming off a loss to previ-.
ously winless Fort Pierce
Central.
5. SLW Centennial (2-4) -
With Treasure Coast being
on the losing end of Fort
Pierce Central's first win on
the year, Centennial sneaks
back into the Top 5. The
Eagres had last ,week off to
regroup and prepare for dis-
trict for Melbourne this
week at home. Centennial
hasn't had a win since Sep-
tember and will get all they
can handle from Melbourne
who is riding a two game
win streak.,
If the Eagles plan on play-
ing in the postseason, and
staying in Top 5, the will
need to win this week.
That's it for this week.
Hopefully, our next batch of
games will bring a new
hope for an even stronger
Top 5.
As always, we welcome
your comments and ques-
tions. Please send them ,to

/AREYERSE MORTGAGE EGAN)

SWETERETIRE E

Are you at least 62 and own your own home? A reverse
mortgage might be right for you. Reverse Mortgages are not
credit based. Credit is not an issue. Can't come to us? I can
come to you. I have helped numerous seniors on the
Treasure Coast with this wonderful product since 2001.
There is no "hard sell" and you are under no obligation to


apply. Have an existing mortgage? You
may be able to pay it off and never have
to make another payment, and utilize
equity in your property. Would you like
to learn more? Give me a call and get
the facts.
