Guardian Angels


looking for recruits

Volunteers must be at least
18-years-old, without a serious
criminal record and vow to
remain drug-free


PORT ST. LUCIE Call-
ing themselves "the saviors
of the city," the Guardian
Angels are intent on help-
ing law enforcement agen-
cies in their fight against
gangs and crimes against
law-abiding citizens.
Steve Horton, the leader
of the Treasure Coast
chapter of the group, said
recently that after becom-
ing familiar with city
streets, the Guardian
Angels can help calm
neighborhoods and rid
them of crime.
"We are the unarmed sol-
diers," said Mr. Horton.


"We threaten the putnks,
thugs and gangsters with
respect, defuse their tac-
tics, and communicate
with them. We can clear a
parking lot in minutes and
bring back the neighbor-
hoods to a calm, peaceful,
family lifestyle like it, is
supposed to be," he said.
The Guardian Angels were
formed in New York City in
1979 by founder Curtis Sliwa.
Now established in over 90
cities worldwide, they came
to Palm Beach County in
1986. Since then, eight chap-

Police warn of scam using


good name of Shriners


BY RITA HART
Staff writer

PORT ST. LUCIE -
Most people are familiar
with the good work of the
Shriners Hospitals for
Children.
Criminals are banking
on that familiarity as
they perpetrate a scam
using valid-looking, but
worthless checks that
appear to be drawn on an
account belonging to
"The Shriners' (sic)' Hos-
pital for Children" in
Boston.
Local police have
learned that such checks,
drawn in the sum of
$3,187.60, are being sent
to unsuspecting individ-
uals around the country,


"Some people fall for the ruse and realize
they've been taken and are embarrassed
and won't call us"

including the Treasure
Coast.
One such resident, a
city employee who sus-
pected a scam, turned
the documents over to
Port St. Lucie police.
Charles E Johnson, a
member of the police
department's Criminal
Intelligence Unit, said he
has no doubt other resi-
dents have received simi-
lar letters and checks.
"Some people fall for
the ruse and realize


they've been taken and
are embarrassed and
won't call us. Other's see
it as a scam and toss it in
the shredder," said Mr.
Johnson.
The checks are accom-
panied by a letter from
"Incas Financial, Inc." of
Edmonton, Alberta,
Canada. The letter con-
tains the heading "Re-'

Parents of premature


babies mark milestones


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
ST. LUCIE COUNTY-Brie
Lamb and her husband,
Robert, knew that her preg-
nancy would be difficult. A
month before her due date,
doctors ordered her on bed
rest, but it was not enough.
When she was 24 weeks
pregnant, Mrs. Lamb went
into labor., Her daughter,
Grace, was delivered by an
emergency Caesarean sec-
tion. Grace emerged kicking
her arms and legs a feisty
baby, her father said. .
"That, she gets from my
wife," he joked last week.
Grace weighed 1 pound, 6
ounces. Doctors at St. Mary's
Medical Center in West Palm
Beach were grimn about her
chances for survival. A full-
term baby is born at 37
weeks' gestation.
"You're there by yourself,
and you're told that your
child is likely to die," Mr.
Lamb said.
Grace spent 95 days in the
hospital. Her parents visited


every day, bathing and
weighing her. They played a
game to guess how many
ounces she had gained.
For three months following
Grace's birth, the Lambs,
.who live in Fort Pierce,
moved to the Quantum
House, which provides hous-
ing near St. Mary's for the
parents of ill children.
When she was released
from the hospital, Grace
weighed 4 pounds, 8 ounces.
Her father credits advances
in medical technology for
saving his daughter's life.
"Without the March of
Dimes, Grace wouldn't be
here," Mr. Lamb said.
Today, 5-year-old Grace
takes ballet lessons and is
learning to read. Though she
is small for her age, she suf-
fers none of the lasting
effects of her early arrival.
"We don't even think of her
as premature anymore," Mr.
Lamb said.
Grace is also an ambassa-
dor for the March of Dimes
Treasure Coast Division,
which aids premature babies


and their families. The
agency raises money to fund
prematurity research.
Premature birth is the No. 1
killer of newborns nationally.
November is Prematurity
Awareness Month.
Pam Crowley, director of
the March of Dimes Treasure
Coast Division, said the
ambassador program is a key
part of raising awareness
about prematurity.
"People take a local face
and put that face on a
national issue," she said.
Mr. Lamb tells a familiar
story. Families of premature
infants said the fear and
uncertainty that accompa-
nies the births of their chil-
dren is balanced by the tri-
umph of watching them
grow up.
Jason Lopez carries a scar
from the procedure that
saved his life. When the Port
St. Lucie toddler was born
nine weeks early, his lungs
were too tiny to work on their
own. Doctors at Joe DiMag-

"Holy Pancake' gets

international fame

Port St. Lucie family sees religious
images in their breakfast


BY RITA HART
Staff writer


PORT ST. LUCIE The
mother who made the
'pancake has a sense of
humor about the image
she saw as she made
breakfast last week.
Her daughter, Dana
O'Kane, believes the
image has a more divine
purpose.
Either way, the pan-
cake, which some say
contains an image of
Jesus and Mary, has
brought international
attention and a spot on
eBay to the Port St. Lucie
women.
Ms. O'Kane's mother,
Marilyn, who asked that
her last name not be
used, said she was mak-
ing the fifth pancake of
the morning. She flipped
it over, and was about to
sprinkle chocolate shav-


wings on it when she
noticed an image in the
pancake.
"I thought, 'Oh, for
heaven's sake, I'd better
not put chocolate on
this,'" said Marilyn.
"My son thought it
looked like Moses and
Elijah, but I said it looked
more like Moses and
Santa Claus. I guess it's
all in the eye of the
beholder," she said.
Marilyn's husband and
Ms. O'Kane's father died
in September of cancer.
Marilyn said the pan-
cake, which has attracted
media attention from as
far away as Britain, has
brought her some much
needed laughs.
But her daughter
believes there is a much
more serious message in
the image.

HAND-FOOT-AND-MOUTH SYNDROME
Q: What is Hand-Foot-And-Mouth-Syndrome?
A: Hand-Foot-And-Mouth-Syndrome generally affects children, but it can also occur
in adults. It's caused by a viral infection. It takes it name from the fact that it results
in an rash that appears on the hands and Feet and sometimes on the buttocks and in
the mouth. In the mouth the rash will usually consist of blisters and small ulcers that
break out on the lining of the mouth and also on the gums, palate and tongue. Tlhe
condition may also cause a sore throat, fever, decreased appetite and general !
irritability. It is most common in the summer and early fall. Normally, the condition is mild and
passes within a week. 00
While there is no specific treatment for the virus, the best way to avoid coming down with the
syndrome is to wash hands thoroughly, particularly after using a rest room 6r handling soiled diapers.
Children who have the condition should be kept away from other children. The incubation period-
die time from first contact to the appearance of symptoms-is roughly 4 to 6 days. Talk with your
dentist about sound hygiene practices that can help you avoid contracting diseases.
Presented as a community service by Dr. James Strawn, located at Midway Dental Center, Midway Rd., Ft. Pierce 464-4822

Woman charged with


neglect in 'the worst case'


police have seen in years


BY RITA HART
Staff writer


PORT ST. LUCIE -A Port
St. Lucie woman has been
charged with three counts
of child neglect in what
police spokesman Officer
Robert Vega calls "the
worst case we've seen in
years."
Jaileen Lorraine Soliman,
25, lived in a single family
home in the 1500 block of
S.W Birkey Avenue in the
city. ,
On Nov. 14, two officers
went to the home, in
response to a call from a
child protective investiga-
tor from the Department
of Children and Families.
DCF was investigating a
complaint that the three
children in the home were
not fed breakfast, lunch or
dinner if they didn't do
their chores, that they had
not been in school for two
months, and they were


"I have seen some bad homes before, but
nothing, nothing compares to this."

Officer Robert Vega
Port St. Lucie police spokesman


responsible for cleaning
up after animals in the
home, some of which may
not have been domesticat-
ed.
The officers knocked on
the front door but received
no response. Through the
glass door, they could see
that "the home looked to
be very unsanitary and
unkept."
According to their report,
the officers also spotted
animal feces inside the
home, along with several
cats and a "loose pit bull
dog."
After calling Animal Con-
trol to the scene, the police
officers noticed a back
door that had been open
when they arrived was
now closed, indicating
that someone was inside
the home.
When they looked into
the home through that
door,, "we saw it in total
disarray," according to
their report, which also
stated the grass in the yard
was 12 inches high, trash
was strewn about the yard
and "the patio floor was
covered in animal feces,
turned over cat litter
boxes, dirty clothes and a
strong order of urine."
Through a bedroom win-
dow, officers reportedly
could see trash, furniture
and clothes thrown about
the entire room.
In addition, the officers
spotted a "large, live. pot
bellied pig rooting around
in the garbage" inside the
middle bedroom.
When one of the officers
went around to the front of
the home again, they
reportedly spotted a small
child who hid upon seeing
them through the window.
The officers made con-
tact with the owner of the


home, Barbara Foster, of
Jupiter, the grandmother
of the children inside the
home. Ms. Foster unlocked
the front door and allowed
the officers inside.
Once in, the officers
reported they discovered
the air conditioning wasn't
on, as they made their way
"over and around trash,
dirty clothing and over-
turned furniture to try and
capture the pit bull dog."
They also made their way
through animal feces to
find the pig in the bed-
room.
The officers then
allegedly found Ms. Soli-
man behind a locked door
with three children, ages
10, 7 and 1.
All three children were
described by police As
dirty. One had insect bites
covering his body, while
another child appeared
malnourished.
When the officers inspect-
ed the kitchen, they report-
edly discovered more filth,
including a high chair with a
seat and tray that was "cov-
ered in dried cat fecal mat-
ter."
Officer Vega said, "I have
seen some bad homes
before, but nothing, nothing
compares to this."
The children were exam-
ined by members of Fire
Rescue and a DCF supervi-
sor was called to the scene.
The children were turned
over to their grandmother,
Ms. Foster.
Animal Control allegedly
took into their possession, a
bird, the pit bull dog, the pot
bellied big and eight cats.
Ms. Foster was charged
with three counts of child
neglect and transported to
St. Lucie County Jail, where
she remained incarcerated
as of press time.

Former substitute teacher
at Manatee Elementary sentenced

In December, 2005, six students at Manatee Elemen-
tary School in Port St. Lucie reported to authorities that
they were improperly touched by substitute teacher
David L. Mindick, 61, ofVero Beach,
All six girls were 8-years-old at the time.
Charged with six counts of felony sexual battery after
those allegations surfaced, the charges were later
reduced when prosecutors suspected'that proving lewd
intent would be difficult.
The reduced charges, to which Mr. Mindick pleaded
guilty, were one felony count and four counts of misde-
meanor sexual battery.
On Nov. 13,, Circuit Court Judge James McCann sen-
tenced Mr. Mindick to 225 days in jail and five years' pro-
bation for one count of felony battery and four counts of
misdemeanor battery.
As part of that probation, Mr. Mindick is prohibited
from ever teaching again or going to any place where
children congregate, including schools.

Inmates cooking up a brighter future

Seven St. Lucie County Jail inmates became the first
graduates of a culinary training program called Inmate
to Workmate on Nov. 14, in a ceremony attended by St.
Lucie County Sheriff Ken J. Mascara.
Created by ARAMARK Correctional Services, the jail's
food service provider, the 90-day program teaches non-
violent offenders who have been nominated by the jail's
detention deputies. The program utilizes on-the-job
training and instruction in proper food production skills.
"The program adds no extra cost to taxpayers and ulti-
mately benefits the local community with an increase in
the number of trained workers with industry-recognized
certification," said Mark Lashley in a statement. Mr.
Lashley is vice president of Florida Operations for ARA-
MARK Correctional Services.
Graduates will receive a three-year food handler cer-
tificate that will qualify them for employment in the food
service industry.
Officials cite meaningful employment as a key factor in
reducing recidivism.

Death penalty sought in slaying
of four Escobedo family members

If U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey gives his
stamp of approval, as is required in all federal death
penalty prosecutions, Ricardo Sanchez and Daniel
Troya, both 24, could face execution for their alleged
role in the killing of Jose and Yessica Escobedo and
their sons Luis Damien, 4, and Luis Julian, 3.
The bodies of the Escobedo family were found on
the side of the turnpike in Port St. Lucie on Oct. 13,
2006.
All four were shot to death.
The death penalty has already been recommended
by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Flori-
da, but the final decision rests with Attorney General
Mukasey. His decision is expected to be rendered
within 90 days.
Mr. Sanchez and Mr. Troya both pleaded not guilty
in April to armed carjacking resulting in death, using
a firearm in a violent crime that resulted in death and
drug charges.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY A
23-year-old radio person-
ality is facing nine felony
charges following a series
of thefts at a Port St. Lucie-
based station.
Police sayVannie Newton
Jr. stole 11 checks from his
employer and deposited
them into a personal
account at Wachovia Bank


last summer.
Mr. Newton worked for
WPLM 104.7-FM, The
Flame, based at 7936 Sad-
dlebrook Drive in Port St.
Lucie.
But he "ran from the
building" on Aug. 9 after
his boss, station owner
Alice Lee, confronted him
about missing checks,
police records show.
He left behind his final
paycheck, police say.


Mr. Newton reportedly
claimed to be an author-
ized signer for the radio
station.
But when he deposited
the checks to his personal
account, bank officials
asked him to submit writ-
ten proof, according to a
statement from Sheila
Lagrega, an investigator
with the Port St. Lucie
Police Department's eco-
nomic crimes division.'

the bank, to meet law
enforcement."
But Mr. Newton report-
edly got a call on his cell
phone and left the bank
before the police or station
boss arrived.
But he had already
deposited several checks
to the account, police say.
A subpoena of bank
records reportedly
revealed that one deposit,
for $918 on June 28,
matches the exact total of
three of the missing
checks.
Two subsequent transac-
tions for about $7,963
coincide with the disap-
pearance of checks for the
same amount, police
added.
All the checks had been
written out to the station,
and not to Mr. Newton.
Police entered surveil-
lance footage from the
bank to show Mr. Newton
handing over to tellers
what they say is the forged
authorization letter.
The incident came to
light when one employee
inquired about a commis-
sion he was supposed to
earn from securing a
donation for the radio sta-
tion.
But when he spoke to Ms.
Lee, the station owner
could find no trace of the
check.
Further inquiry revealed
that the missing check had
been cashed.
A review of the company
records also uncovered 10
other missing checks, Ms.
Lee said in her statement
to police.
The checks were for
amounts ranging from
about $497 to $5,479.
Mr. Newton has worked
at The Flae for about one
year.
He was an on-air person-
ality withother responsi-
bilities, and earned $10
per hour. He worked about
30 hours per week.
Mr. Newton reported to
work the day after the
bankers informed the sta-
tion of the deposits.
Ms. Lee confronted him
and called 911.
"While they were waiting
for police to arrive, Mr.
Newton ran out of the

any form of contract with
him since."
St. Lucie County
deputies arrested Mr.
counts of uttering a forged
check, three counts of
third-degree grand theft
and one count of organ-
ized fraud worth more
than $20,000, but less than
$50,000.
But investigator Lagrega
had applied for warrants
on more extensive charges.
In addition to the current
charges, she had sought
one count of perpetrating
an organized scheme to
defraud and several counts
of criminal use of personal
information.
Ms. Lee did not wish to
comment further on the

Insurance will take care of it

When you read your insurance bill take this into consid-
eration.
My wife was in a small fender bender. From the time she
was taken to the hospital by ambulance she questioned
how much is this going to cost?
All she was told was that she didn't have to worry about it
because she had great insurance.
She never got an' answer about how much anything
would cost.
Not from the tow truck driver to the ambulance person-
nel, or the hospital.
When the bill finally came in, we were astounded. It was
shocking. It was really expensive.
We purchased our Honda from a local dealership just
north of Port St. Lucie. The vehicle was fixed with a price at
the dealership where we bought it.
When we went to pick up the vehicle from the body shop
there was a 50 percent more charge on the bill than was
quoted to us in writing.
When questioning the dealership body shop manager I
wvas told, "Don't worry about it. Your insurance will take
care of it."
I, for one, take offense at that because I am the one
paying for the insurance.
Every year it goes up.
If this continues to go on being a don't worry about it, the
insurance will take care of it situation, we are headed for
trouble.
People, we have to worry about it. You have to get
concerned. You have to be very careful and question who
you choose to do your work.
Always get a price in writing, guaranteed 100 percent, or
you will hear the same thing we heard.
"Don't worry about it. It is an extra add-on. Your insur-
ance will take care of it."
People, wake up.

Med techs

I just want the people of Port St. Lucie, and everywhere else,
to know that in many nursing homes, assisted living facilities,
hospitals, doctors' offices, etc., there are people they call med
techs that have only had eight hours of training.
These people are giving your family member, your loved
ones and even you your medication.
They don't have any idea of your symptoms or of the con-
traindications of the medicines they pass out.
They are passing out medications, giving treatments and
taking vital signs of our loved ones.
Again, they have had only eight hours of training.
The other day, someone almost killed a patient. She was a
med tech. She did not know that she was not supposed to give
blood pressure medication to a person whose blood pressure
was low.
This really needs to be looked into by the state and the
federal government.
The reason that they hire these people to do this important
job of passing out medications and doing treatments is
because they only have to pay them about $8 or $9, an hour.

Again, this needs to be stopped.
Someone out there please do something before they kill
somebody.

Handicapped parking spaces

I am a person who has polio and is paralyzed. I also drive.
Originally the handicapped parking spaces were meant for
people who were paralyzed and their driver.
If a person is in a wheelchair, they cannot get out of a van in
the regular size parking spaces.
I've seen people who park in the handicapped spaces
jumping in and out of trucks and cars and running into the
mall.
Anyone who is able to walk throughout the whole mall
should be able to walk to the mall from a regular parking space.
If you have a heart condition the doctors recommend that
you walk a lot, and that walking is good for you.
Also, if you have emphysema I don't know how you can walk
through a whole mall.
It's not fair for the people who are in wheelchairs and needs a
handicapped space, and is unable to get it.

Look at the whole picture

This is in response to "No to amnesty."
The government needs to wake up. Illegal immigrants aren't
going to just go away.
This country was founded by imminigrants, our forefathers,
and so on.
Make the ones that are here working hard as they do legal.
Collect the taxes and Social Security.
Maybe it will improve our tax situation.
The illegal immigrants are very helpful to the economy in a
lot of ways.
They contribute to the food, the clothing, the housing, and
much more.
The government needs to do something with our own
welfare system.
The immigrants don't receive food stamps or anything. They
only receive medical aid when needed.
The Americans alone are abusing the welfare
system.
Look at the whole picture. This is not an issue to be narrowed
down to one group.


The first Cubans that came to America helped the economy
in so many ways.
Many people were against that back then.
Look what they have done for Florida, and the whole
economy.

Portability tax

This is to say no on Jan. 29 to the portability ballot that is
coming up in Florida.
People are saying that they feel stuck in their homes, even if
they are downsizing.
They feel they should be able to take their tax, whether it be
$75,000 or $100,000 assessed value, and move it into their new
smaller home that is worth up to $500,000,
They say they are stuck in their homes, and they want the
ability to take it with them.
The real people that are suck in Florida in their homes right
now are the people that purchased their homes at a premium
in the last five years.
A lot of the homes are now worth $100,000 to $200,000 less
than when they purchased them.
The reason that they are stuck is because most of them have
mortgages that are higher than the cost of their houses right
now.
They also are paying top-dollar premium taxes to the state
and counties of Florida.
Taking the portability for people who have been in their
homes for extended periods of time and who don't want to
move because they choose not to pay the taxes on a more
expensive home, a nicer home should stay in their home.
It's not fair for the people who have moved here in the last
five, six or sever years, or more, and purchased homes at
premium prices to pay way higher taxes than someone who
can own the exact same home right next door and pay
extremely little and stayed in their homes for ten or 15 years, or
longer.
It is just so ridiculous that it is almost scary that they are even
thinking of putting this on the tax ballot.
If they need to fix the taxes, they need to fix the taxes for
everybody, not for just the few people who are their friends.
It irks me that they say that people feel stuck in their homes.
Maybe they should talk to some of the people whose homes
are now worth about $100,000 less than the original purchase
price. They are paying way, wayhigher taxes than what they

Letters


Enough is enough

As the chairman for social
justice in the Port St. Lucie
Sons of Italy Lodge No.
2594, I was notified by our
state chairman that pub-
lished reports indicate that
the NBC television group is
developing a drama about
mob wives who take over
the family business, titled
MafiaWives for the 2008-
2009 season.
This letter is to express our
outrage for the work being
done in scheduling future
television shows.
I'm writing not just for
myself,' but for a very large
number of very proud
Italian-Americans.
The media, movies and
television, is constantly
portraying Italians as
gangsters. This has been
going on for too long and it
must stop once and for all.
Italians are good people,
but because of few bad
apples the entire ethnic
group has to suffer.


The same exists with all
races and nationalities, but
the Italians are subjected to
much more, unfortunately
with very little objection.
Now is the time to make
our voices heard, loud and
clear.
The following statistics
show what kind of influence
this type of entertainment,
has in our society, especially
among young people.
A recent Zogby national
survey showed that 44
percent of U.S. teens cast
Italian-Americans as a
crime boss, or gangster.
Worse yet, 46 percent of
Italian-American teens
believe their heritage was
portrayed accurately by the
industry despite U.S.
Census data shows that 66
percent of Italian-Ameri-
cans in the work force hold
white-collar positions, with
income and education
above the national median..
Despite the fact that U.S.
Justice Department.data
shows that only some 5,000
people are involved in


organized crime which is
composed of Chinese,
Hispanic, Russian, as well as
Italian-Americans among
others.
Even if all 5,000 people
were of Italian origin, it
would constitute less than
one-on hundredth of one
percent of the estimated 26
million Americans of Italian
descent.
I'm preparing a petition
expressing our feelings to be
signed and sent to NBC
executives Marc Graboff,
co-chair of NBC and Vince
Manze, president of NBC
Program Planning, 3000 W.
Alameda Ave., Burbank, CA
91523
. We are also asking anyone
that cares about social
justice, Italian or non-
Italian, to join us in disap-
proving another series
focused on the negative and
denigrating stereotyping of
Italian-Americans.
Enough is enough

Freedom from want

We are approaching
Thanksgiving. It is a time to
join together and be
thankful for our many
blessings.
It reminds me of the
Norman Rockwell paintings,
depicting situations com-
mon people encounter.
During World War II he
painted what was to be
known as the four freedoms,
freedom of speech, religion,
want, and fear.
Freedom from want and
fear seem to be unattainable
wishes.
The painting depicting
freedom from want is very
well known to many.
The setting is a Thanksgiv-
ing table with three genera-
tions represented. The host
is grandma, with granddad
at her side. She is serving
the Thanksgiving turkey.
The children and adults
are obviously are very close.
They are enjoying the
bounty and each other.


It is a very merry scene.
In our day there are
detractors. How can this be?
It seems few families are
close, and Rockwell's
depiction is an affront to
their reality.
It has also been said that
parents and children cannot
enjoy being together.
Others have said it doesn't
reflect ethnic diversity.
This is a family event. It is
not the United Nations.
Please let us get back to
where we once were.
A very happy and blessed
Thanksgiving.

R. C. Brosch
Port St. Lucie

Thank you

We would like to offer a
gracious acknowledgment
to those who participated.
The local Veterans of
Foreign Wars are thankful to
the citizens of St Lucie
County for their generous
donations over Veterans


Day weekend.
It is especially humbling
to hear words of apprecia-
tion for our service.
While proud to have
served, any veteran will
agree the heroes are those
who died.
Knowing not your
troubled mind, we
acknowledge your right to
pass us by as if we did not
exist.
We do ask that you
remember those who
suffer, and the dead who
protract your rights.
You would little under-
stand the military code of
conduct. It does supersede
all things political.
Post 10554 will join other
veteran's organizations in
an effort to bring some
holiday cheer to our
hospitalized military.
Support on the home
front is as vital today as it
was in 1772.

I hope people see that this would be an unjustifiable slap in
the face for many, many people who are living in Florida.
By passing a law for the portability, what Gov. Christ would
like to see would be for people who purchased homes within a
certain time frame being penalized with extremely high.
People who didn't purchase homes during this certain time
frame will benefit.
It doesn't make any sense to me. And, I don't see how it could
make any sense to anybody unless they have been in their
homes for a while and have an extremely low assessment.
That is whom it will benefit.

Radio station 88.3 FM

I would like to know more about radio station 88.3 FM.
They play great songs, but I can only get it in my car, and
would like to be able to get the signal in my home.
I have tried different radios in different areas in my home to
no avail.
I would like to donate money to them so they can buy better
equipment antennas because I feel it is one of the best radio
stations in the area.

Obey the speed limit

In response to the rant about people not being courteous, I
have a comment about motorists not moving out of the way so
others can pass on highways like State Road 77 and Interstate
95.
For example on Interstate 95, a limited access highway, the
maximum posted speed in most places is 70 mph.
Under that current law as long as a motorist is going 70 mph
in any one of the three lanes on that highway they are perfectly
in their rights to be there.
If someone were to pass a person who is going 70 mph they
would be going above the posted speed limit. They would be
breaking the law. They are speeding.
There is no such thing as a passing lane unless a highway you
are on has such a sign posted.
Interstate 95, and these types of highways do not have
designated passing lanes.
You cannot exceed the maximum speed limit to pass another
vehicle legally.
If you do so, you are exceeding the maximum speed limit and
can be ticketed.
You do not have the right to pull up on a vehicle entirely too
close, flashing your lights, etc. This could cause an accident.
The average motorist is not an emergency vehicle, and such
behavior could cause danger to other vehicles trying to get out
of the way.
Slow down and obey the law.

Your kids are your responsibility

In response to "Teachers should stop their whining," I agree
that there are excellent and some not so excellent teachers
anywhere you go. And with any profession, you can get burned
out and need to make a change.
However, I believe that teachers should be teachers, as the
name implies.
They are not here to raise your kids because you are too busy
pursuing a career.
If the parents are too stressed, maybe they should have
thought about that before they procreated.
They are your kids and it is your responsibility to raise them.
Expecting someone else to teach your children right from
wrong, moral versus immoral, and good versus bad, is irre-
sponsible at least, and borderline neglect.
What you are showing them is that your career is more
important than they are.
If there is a problem with your child at school. maybe you
need to spend more time with them.
If the problem was unjust, then you had better help them
understand it and how to deal with it.
This is not fantasyland. Life is not always fair.


Get real.
As for being a mentor, don't place your shortcomings on
. someone else's shoulders.

Made in Usa

I am responding to the item, "America has lost as a country."
Don't be fooled by what you see.
1 was told years ago that if the label/stamp that says U.S.A.
has no periods where they belong, that the item was made in
Japan.
There is an industrial town called Usa in Japan.
Usa is read as is. It's read as a full word. U.S.A., the United
States of America, is never read as a full word, but uses letters
only.
Editor's note: The following information is from
www.snopes.com regardingan urban legend involving Usa.
Claim: Japan renamed a town 'Usa'so that they could
legitimately stamp their exports 'Made in USA.'
Status: False.
Origins: In the years after World War II, Japan, whose
manufacturing capabilities had been almost completely wiped
out by Allied bombing, attempted to rebuild both their economy
and their industrial base by producing large quantities of
inexpensive Japan goods and exporting them to America and
other countries. (The USA was the primary market, however,
since it emerged from the war with a robust economy and had
no damaged infrastructure to rebuild.) The phrase "Made in
Japan"came to symbolize cheap, shoddy goods to Americans,
and eventually the rumor arose that Japan had sought to avoid
this stigma by deviously renaming one of its towns "Usa"so it
could identify its products as being 'Made in USA."
This rumor was almost certainly a tongue-in-cheek joke
inspired by someone's noticing the coincidence of a town in
Japan named Usa (and perhaps fueled by American xenopho-
bia or lingering resentment of theJapanese). In fact, the Japan-
ese city of Usa (on the island ofKyushu) was not creating by
renaming an existing town; it was called Usa long before World
War II. As well, nearly every country that imports goods requires
them to be marked with the name of their county of origin, not
a town or city, and it would have taken some circuitous (and
probably expensive) routing to get goods marked "Made in USA"
into other countries without anyone's noticing that they had
originated in Japan. America, especially, Japan's largest market
by far, would certainly have noticed the incongruity of goods
marked "Made in USA"being imported into the USA.
Of course, the idea that the U.S. Customs Department would
simply shrug at Japanese products marked 'Made in USA,"
despite the confitsion they would obviously cause, simply
because they were "legitimately" identified as coming from the
Japanese city of Usa is just silly. Lest anyone think that U.S.
Customs inspectors were lax about enforcing the rules or willing
to look the other way, consider the following difficulty Sony
experienced with them as late as 1969 when Sony tried to
1do-I pi.p rhi lw fir thir their products wereJapanese in origin:
... despite the Japanese flag flying on Fifth Avenue, most
consumers, including actual customers, remained unaware
that Sony was a Japanese.company. Morita [President of Sony
Sales] was uneasy about the possibility of a negative reaction,
and did what he could to sustain the misapprehension. The
required 'Made in ]dpan" label, for example, was positioned on
the product as inconspicuously as possible, in the smallest
permissible size; and more than once, Sony edged below the
minimum, causing U.S. Customs inspectors to turn back
shipments.
A notable exception to the USA's import laws is the Common-
wealth ofthe Northern Mariana Islands, which is allowed to
use the "Made in USA" label on their products and export them
to the USA duty-fiee. Legislation was introduced in Congress to
close this loophole (also known as the "Saipan Scam") in 1999,
but it died in committee.

Dirty old men

What is it about these dirty old men, young and
middle-aged men alike, coming out of the woodwork
lately?
Sex predators, deviant types, and what used to be call
mashers are all coming out of hiding.
There never used to be so many of these creatures.
There seems to be a new one every day lately, and


some are prominent people. A
Why all of a sudden? -
Wouldn't you think with all of the publicity about them !
exposing themselves they would stay low-key?
It's almost as if they want to get caught. r
Is there an epidemic of oversexed men? Is that all they 1
are thinking about. e
Each one of them should get a life.

PETA is not a panacea

I usually don't respond to rants, but this is ridiculous.
For two weeks in a row people are holding up PETA,
which is People for the Protection of Animals, as an
organization that cares for pets,
As an organization, they have a 90 percent euthanasia
rate of adoptable pets. They have an attitude of better
dead than owned.
They are a pure animal rights organization.
Animal rights are different than animal welfare. They
believe animals should have all of the rights that
humans have, and that they should not be used for food,
fiber or entertainment.
That includes keeping them as pets.
These people are the ones that are making the lives of
loving pet owners more difficult and more expensive
with the pet laws they encourage our mayors and
commissioners to pass with false information, and
outright lies.
While I am on the subject the HSUS, which is the
Humane Society of the United States isn't much better.
They play on their name, and siphon money away that
is needed by our local humane societies.
HSUS runs no rescues or humane societies, as their
name implies. Only a miniscule amount of the millions
of dollars in their annual budget actually goes to any
type of direct animal care.
They purposely lie, and do what they must to.add to
their coffers.
Begging for donations to care for Michael Vick's dogs
when the FBI had them, and they were in no way
involved is just one of many examples.
If you need help with a possible animal abuse situa-
tion, call animal control or the local police or sheriff.
If you want to do something to actually help animals,
volunteer your time or donate to your local humane
societies.
They can use the help, and you know that your money
is actually being used to care for animals.
Response from PETA: There are inaccuracies in this
rant, starting with the name of our organization.
The writer has called us People for the Protection of
Animals instead of People for the Ethical Treatment of
Animals, hence PETA.
PETA does not euthanize adoptable pets.
Because the shelter that we operate is a last resort for
sick, severely injured, and unadoptable animals for
whom a peaceful end is the only humane option, we do
euthanize most of the animals we take in.
To state that PETA euthanizes 90 percent of adoptable
animals is false.
We definitely do not have an attitude of "better dead
than owned," as the writer claims.
In fact, many of our staff members, myself included, are
guardians of dogs, cats, and other rescued animals.
We do not provide false information or lie to city
council members, mayors, or anyone else for that matter.
The allegation that-we provide false and misleading
information to government authorities is particularly
outlandish, as any such conduct would be not only
unprofessional and unethical, but also, in many
instances, illegal.

It's getting to the time
when many of us will be
decorating our trees for
the holidays.
A great alternative to an
artificial tree and/or a live
tree is a Norfolk Island pine.
They are available at most
retailers and come in
several sizes. Some even
come already decorated and
ready to go.
The Norfolk Island pine
does require a well-lit area
of your home if you are
going to keep it indoors for
an extended period of time.

These trees have distinct-
ly flat branches and short
soft needles. They thrive in
humid environments,
which makes them right at
home in Florida. The soil
should be on the moist side.
A sure sign the tree is not
getting enough moisture is
when you start to see a lot of
dead lower branches. The
Norfolk pine does not
regenerate its lost limbs or
needles, so it is important to
stay on a steady watering
schedule.
If the tree is over-watered,
you will begin to see areas
of bright yellow needles that
fall off easily. To avoid this,
be sure the plant is not
standing in water. If you
purchase a tree with foil
wrap on it, be sure to slit the


Americans today are
giving longer and
longer.
However, this can be a
double-edged sword. An
increasing number of
Americans are living long
enough to suffer from mental
incapacity.
Over four million Ameri-
cans suffer from Alzheimer's
disease alone.
In fact, according to the


foil so water can drain from
the pot.
It is not recommended
that the trees be pruned as
the plant can loose its
symmetrical shape.
If you are one of the many
Americans who are buying a
live tree this year, here are a
few tips to help you with the
process.
Since live trees in our area
are trucked very long
distances to their destina-
tion, picking out the
freshest looking tree is
extremely important. Make
sure your tree is green with
minimal brown branches.
Check the needles to be
sure that they are flexible
and do not fall off when you
brush the branches.
Another good check is to
bounce the tree lightly on
the cut end to see how
aggressively the leaves fall
off the branches. Avoid
trees that shed leaves
aggressively with this
procedure.,
Another point to consider
is where the tree will be
placed. Be sure to get
accurate measurements of
the area so you can get a
tree that is tailored to its
location.
Once you've picked that
prize tree, the next most
important task is to get
your tree in its stand and
located where it will spend


National Institute on Aging,
half of those over age 85 have
Alzheimer's disease.
Of course, Alzheimer's is
only one cause for mental
incapacity.
How do you tell if someone
has mental capacity? *
Legal capacity has slightly
different standards depend-
ing upon the context.
In estate planning there are
two standards, which may be
applied depending upon the
circumstances: "testamentary
capacity" and "contractual
capacity."
Both require that the
individual has attained a
minimum age, typically 18.
However, they diverge
significantly after that.
Testamentary capacity is
that level of mental acuity
necessary to make a will.
Generally, in order for a will
to be valid, the person must
understand they are signing a


the remainder of the
season. If it has not been
done at the tree lot, cut off
about an inch from the
bottom the tree before
mounting it into the stand.
This will greatly aid the tree
in absorbing water.
Once the tree is mounted,
be sure to add water
immediately. The sooner all
this is done the better. Now,
it's time to decorate the new
tree with all the goodies you
have been collecting the
past couple of weeks.
Use caution with lights,
especially if you use the
larger C-7 type lights. As
long as the tree remains
moist and the needles
pliable, the tree will not be
a huge fire hazard. As the
tree ages and you get near
the end of the season, more
caution is advised since the
tree structure will become
drier in nature.
Now that all the work is
done, the time,has come to
sit back with your favorite
beverage and enjoy your
masterpiece.,

Angels


From page Al
ters have formed throughout
Florida, including the one on
the Treasure Coast.
An all-volunteer organiza-
tion, members must be at
least 18-years-old and with-
out a serious criminal record.
They must vow to remain
drug-free and undergo a 12-
week training program.
Mr. Horton said the local
chapter of the group is con-
stantly seeking new mem-
bers.
"We train in martial arts
and self-defense and we are
CPR certified," said Mr. Hor-
ton, a 20-year veteran of the
Guardian Angels..
The organization provides
security for events such as
football games and concerts,
and even walk people to
their cars if requested.
According to Mr. Horton,
for the past several months
the Guardian Angels have


been patrolling the area of
SuperPlay in St. Lucie West,
where many adolescents and
teens often congregate in the
parking lot.
"Parents drop their kids off
in droves there, and it looks
like a Britney Spears con-
cert," said Mr. Horton.
"Kids are everywhere, and
they are not in the movies or
bowling. They are hanging in
the parking lot. We've even
caught kids in the ditches
and construction sites
behind SuperPlay, up to no
good," he said.
Officer Robert Vega,
spokesman for the Port St.
Lucie Police Department,
said five to eight Guardian
Angels are in the SuperPlay
parking lot every week.
"They do assist us and are
extra eyes and ears for us if
something does happen,"
said Officer Vega.


Officer Vega said the busi-
ness owners in that area
want the patronage of fami-
lies and children.
"But unfortunately, some
of the kids are going there for
the wrong reasons, just to
hang out," he said.
Steve Horton believes the
presence of the Guardian
Angels can be a major deter-
rent to crime.
"We stop a lot of crimes
before they happen and
people are grateful when
they see the red berets," said
Mr. Horton.
We believe .there is a solu-
tion to every problem," he
said.

Premature
From page Al


gio Children's Hospital in Hol-
lywood, Fla., inserted a chest
tube to help Jason breathe.
At 4 pounds, 1 ounce, Jason
was large. for a premature
infant. His mother, watching
him sleep in an incubator,
wondered if he would survive.
"Look at how tiny he is," she
recalled, tearing up.
But Jason thrived, and was
sent home to join his two
older brothers, with whom he
"runs amok," his mother said.
Jason, now 2, started pre-
school last month.
"My father says I have the
worst, the worster and the
worstest," Mrs. Lopez joked.
Along with her husband,
Stephen, Mrs. Lopez said the
family "will probably be
involved with March of Dimes
for the rest of our lives"
because of its role in prematu-
rity research.
Weeks before her due date,
Meg Sweetland felt the first
pangs of labor. Twin daugh-
ters, growing inside her womb
for 26 weeks, were about to
arrive 11 weeks too soon.
Early in her pregnancy, doc-
tors had classified the preg-
nancy as high risk, so Mrs.
Sweetland underwent weekly
ultrasounds.
When her daughters were
born, fear eclipsed joy. Baby
Annika weighed 2 pounds.
Her sister, Mia, weighed little
more than 15 ounces.
The girls were whisked from
the delivery room and hooked
to life-support machines. Mrs.
Sweetwood, now a dialysis
nurse at Indian River Medical
Center, and her husband,
Dean, were terrified.
Three months of blood
transfusions and surgeries fol-
lowed the births. But three
months later, the twins were
released from Kaiser San
Francisco Medical Center.
Mia left the neonatal intensive
care unit after 95 days. She

weighed 4 pounds. Annika
went home when she was 100
days old. She weighed 5


pounds.
"When they first came
home, we were so strict about
who came into the house as
far as hand-washing and
wearing masks," Mrs. Sweet-
land said. The family moved
toVero Beach three years ago.
Annika and Mia, now 6, are
"very happy and healthy"
first-graders who take ballet
lessons and love to swim,
their mother said.
Eight years ago, when
Sebastian resident Sandy
Byrnes was 28 weeks' preg-
nant with her son, Matthew,
she developed preeclampsia,
a potentially deadly condition
characterized by high blood
pressure and the presence
protein in the urine.
Matthew was delivered by
an emergency Caesarean sec-
tion at 28 weeks by doctors at
Mercer Medical Center in
Trenton, N.J. He weighed 2
pounds, 1 ounce. When he
was a week old, he developed
a brain hemorrhage. During
his 89-day hospitalization,
Matthew underwent two
blood transfusions.
"Every day, you go in and
they tell you about the things
we're facing," his mother said.
Mrs. Byrnes and her hus-


band, Kevin, worried about
the long-term effects of pre-
maturity. Doctors told them it
would be impossible to tell
until Matthew started school.
"Each month was another
milestone," Mrs. Byrnes said.
In the end, the Byrnes had
nothing to worry about.
Matthew, now 8, is a third-
grader at Sebastian Elemen-
tary School. He's a Cub Scout
and has a green belt in karate.
"He wants to be president,"
Mrs. Byrnes said.
Michelle Bennett of Jupiter
recalled feeling helpless when
her son, Jared, was born four
years ago. Jared, born six
weeks early, weighed 6
pounds, 12 ounces, but his
premature lungs were forced
to work overtime because of
his size.
"There's nothing you can
do," Mrs. Bennett said.
Jared was sent home from
the hospital 10 days later,
slightly jaundiced but other-
wise fine. Jared, now 4, started
speaking late, but overall his
development has proceeded
normally. His mother credits
advances in prematurity
research.
"He's a little blessing," Mrs.
Bennett said.

Pancake


From page Al
Ms. O'Kane suffers from
dystonia, a rare neurological
condition that causes muscles
to involuntarily contract and
spasm.
Ms. O'Kane, who said she is
unable to work because of the
condition, has been turned
down twice for disability ben-
efits.
"I am deeply, deeply spiritu-
al and the realization hit me
that this is dad's way of help-
ing me," said Ms. O'Kane.
"The last thing I whispered
to my father before he died


was that I would be his angel if
he would be mine. I believe
this is my father's way of try-
ing to get me the help and
attention I need," she said.
Ms. O'Kane often sells items
on eBay, and decided to put
the pancake up for sale to the
highest bidder.
The first time she did, the
bidding went as high as $338.
However, the item wasn't sold
because Ms. O'Kane realized
the bids were coming from
individuals who had not bid
on eBay before, or who had
negative ratings with eBay.
The pancake was then put
up for bid a second time.
Titled 'A Holy Pancake -


Jesus and Mary," the site had
more than 4,400 hits at press
time, with a top bid of $26.01.
It ultimately sold on the auc-
tion site for $29.
The eBay site mentions that
a portion of the proceeds
from the sale of the pancake
will go to a worthy cause relat-
ed to dystonia.
"If this helps Dana's disabili-
ty, that's wonderful," said her
mother.
In the meantime, both
women are getting a lot of
attention over the pancake's
image.
"I've had calls from four or
five different states," said Mar-
ilyn. "I was even on the radio

From page A8


A person's natural objects
of bounty would be their
family, close friends, etc.
Of course, a person can
recognize their natural
objects of bounty and
choose to leave assets
elsewhere, such as to
charity.
States require a higher
level of mental capacity in
order to execute a contract.
Typically, you need to
understand that you are
entering a contract, the
rights and duties under the
contract, and so forth.
Interestingly, in the estate
planning process some
documents require testa-
mentary capacity while
others require contractual


capacity. .
A will requires testamen-
tary capacity. A trust
technically is a contract
between the grantor and the
trustee and would require
contractual capacity._
However, many states have
recognized the nonsensical
distinction and now apply a
testamentary capacity
requirement to a trust. Life
insurance and retirement
accounts are contracts. In
most states these would
require contractual capacity.
As a result of these differ-
ences, you could end up in
an awkward position of
being able to change your
will but not your beneficiary
designation.
Agnes Marquis found
herself in that situation. In


November 2000, Ms.
Marquis changed her life
insurance beneficiary
designation form, naming
her nephew.
At the time, Ms. Marquis
thought that someone was
talking to her through the
television, that her dog
nursed her back to health,
that she was going to marry
Jesus, and that unidentified
Quakers were going to break
into her house at night.
Not surprisingly, a dispute
regarding her capacity
ensued at her death. The
Maine Supreme Court held
that the beneficiary designa-
tion change required
contractual capacity, which
she lacked.
It is important to plan
ahead to anticipate poten-


tial incapacity.
A qualified estate-plan-
ning attorney can help you
draft your estate plan so that
someone can make changes
for you if you become
incapacitated.
Further, such an attorney
can help you minimize the
risk that your documents
will be challenged due to
lack of capacity. '

in Davenport, Iowa. I've had a
lot of laughs over this. If it isn't
funny, what is it'worth?" she
asked.
Ms. O'Kane sees the pan-
cake as having more serious
ramifications.
"My friends think it's pretty
incredible, and they are happy
for me because they feel
maybe I'll finally get the help I
need for my disease," she said.
"I'm hoping Dr. Phil or
Oprah will pick up on this,
because I want the world to

Ms. O'Kane.

Caribbean has not yet
named a replacement for

like to see one of Royal

truly something for
everyone.
We shall miss the
Mariner of the Seas, but
before it does th6 ship will
continue her alternating
eastern and western
Caribbean itineraries.
The other cruise options
that sail from Port
Canaveral at this time are
Disney Magic and Disney
Wonder, each sailing
three-, four- and seven-
night itineraries; Carnival
Sensation, sailing three-

alternating eastern and
western Caribbean itiner-
aries; Royal Caribbean's
Sovereign of the Seas,

nights to the Bahamas.
Port Canaveral is a port
of call for NCL and other
various cruise lines

incredible journey that
starts in our own back-

Scam
From page Al


es the recipients that they
are the "lucky winners" of
a "Monthly Global Draw"
which was held in Glas-
gow, Scotland.
The letter tells the
recipients they have won
a lump sum payout of
$50,000, "after paying the
tax and administrative
fees."
The letter advises that
the recipient is being pro-
vided with an "assistance
check" in the sum of
$3,187.60, to help pay for
the tax and administra-
tive fees. Once the fee is
paid, the winner is
advised, "your money
shall be released,"
according to the letter.
The name and phone
number of an "accredited
agent" is included in the
letter, and the winners
are advised to contact
that agent to claim their
prize, once the tax and
fees are paid.
Mr. Johnson said when
recipients call, they are
told to send an express
amount to cover taxes
and fees, which ini one
case was $2,000.
"It will take a number of
days before your bank
calls and tells you the
check is not good, and by
then, you might have
already sent the money
out," said Mr. Johnson.
"Even if you put a stop-
payment on your check,
it, will cost you $25, so
you'll still be a victim at
some level," he said. '


Mr. Johnsoni called the
phone number in the let-
ter, a Canadian exchange,
and asked to speak with a
supervisor, whereupon
the person on the other
end hung up.
"Now when I call back,
they don't answer," said
Mr. Johnson.
The winners are advised
to act fast so as not to
miss the deadline for
claiming the prize, and to
"keep this winning as
confidential as possible
to avoid false claims and
double winners."
Because the $3,187.60
check is so authentic
looking, banks are
accepting the checks.
The Shriners Hospital is
not mentioned at all in
the letter advising the
recipient they have won.
"They have gotten hold
of a check from Shriners
and they've altered it,"
said Mr. Johnson.
"Someone sees it and
thinks it's a good cause.
It's just another hook to
reach out," said Mr. John-
son, who pointed out that
children, animals and
charities are often used
by scam artists because
they work so well.
Mr. Johnson said resi-
dents should! never send
money to an individual or
company without first
verifying the authenticity
of the recipient through
their local police depart-
ment, Sheriff's Office or
attorney.

"The fact that this is a

through hammocks and
pinelands.
A short interpretive trail
describes the 1920s town
of Indrio, and the role Mr.
D. J. Wilcox played in
building the town. The
walk identifies the rem-
nants of the Aubrecht
homestead, and previous
locations of the old Indrio
Post Office, train depot and
East Coast Land Develop-
ment Administration
Building.
D.J. Wilcox Natural Area
contains'two access points.
The canoe dock and fishing
pier is located at the end of
Wilcox Road, east of Old
Dixie Highway just south
of Harbor Branch Oceano-
graphic Institution, while
the interpretive trails are
located at the corner of Old
Dixie Highway and Indrio
Road. *
The Indrio Scrub natural
area has been recently
completed, and is open to
the public.
The 13-acre site contains
a variety of threatened and
endangered species of
plants found in the scrub
ecosystem.
A short quarter-mile
interpretive trail identifies


many of the plants that
make scrub a truly unique
habitat.
Indrio Scrub is located
north of D. J. Wilcox and
parking is provided along
Old Dixie Highway.
The Paleo Hammock Nat-
ural Area consists of a very
old hammock containing
swamp hickory, Florida
elm, oaks and palms in
western St. Lucie County.
A one-mile interpretive
trail leads to an observa-
tion tower overlooking a
marsh.
Paleo Hammock includes
several parcels of histori-
cally significant land, and
is being restored with
amenities to be provided in
several phases.
Paleo Hammock is locat-
ed four miles south of State
Route 70 on Carlton Road,
in western St. Lucie Coun-
ty.
These sites are open from
dawn until dusk and man-
aged and maintained by St.
Lucie County's Environ-
mental Resources Depart-
ment.

Holidays don't have to be


perfect to be memorable


T he holidays are
supposed to be
times of joy. Howev-
er, for too many of us, they
have become so stressful
that we dread the
reminders that the holi-
days are coming.
Since the retail season
seems to start ever earlier,
we have more than
enough time to worry
about the things we need
to and want to do.
While some holiday
stress may be inevitable,
there are some stress-
busters that can help you
enjoy the holidays more.
We all play an expecta-
tions game: those we set
for ourselves and the ones
we feel from family and
society. We want the
holidays to be Hallmark
memories and Kodak
moments. The reality is
that human beings don't
always act and react the
way we'd like them to. To
avoid disappointment and
manage the stress that the
holidays often bring,
experts at the Mayo Clinic
suggest several things we
can do to make the stress
level manageable and
keep us from getting
overwhelmed and
depressed.
Acknowledge your
feelings: If you are griev-
ing, it's normal to feel sad.
Don't force yourself to be
happy just because it is
the holidays. However, you
may feel better if you seek
support from friends, the
community, religious
organizations or charities
that help others. Helping
others often makes us
forget our own problems
and out them in perspec-
tive.
Be realistic: As families
change and grow, tradi-
tions may change, as well.
If your entire family can't .
be together anymore,
invite friends to join you
for the day. Share phone
calls, e-mails, home


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well

videos, digital photos (or
the old-fashioned kind) to
stay close to family that's
far away.
Set differences aside:
This is not a good time.to
discuss long-standing
problems. Everyone is
stressed and everyone
should try to ignore small
problems and let things
go.
Stick to a budget:
Before you shop, decide
how much you can afford
to spend on gifts and
entertaining. Budget in
decorations and food, as
well. Give homemade gifts,
narrow your list, and agree
only to buy gifts for the
children or find some
other way to manage
expenses. Perhaps a family
gift exchange, where each
person buys for one other
person will work for your
family. Maybe you could
all donate gift money to a
worthy cause. If you get
into debt, you'll be dealing
with the bills and the
stress for months to come.
If you shop early, you
can spread the spending
throughout the year and
get things on sale. You can
give pretty IOUs that
promise gifts of yourself-
walking a friend's dog,
baby-sitting, and other
things that don't cost
money, but are from the
heart. Children can give
them to parents and
parents to kids: a day in
the park, a trip to the zoo


or the beach, a special day
just for that child.
Plan ahead: Get a plan
of action going before the
holidays start. Decide
when you'll shop, when
you'll cook, when you'll
entertain. Plan menus
and make shopping lists to
cut down on runs to the
store at the busiest times.
Learn to say no. Only
agree to do the things you
really want to do, unless
it's impossible to say no,
like to your boss. Don't say
yes to every request and
don't feel guilty about
saying no.
Forget being perfect:
Your domestic diva should
take a hike. So the cake
falls. The kids act up. Your
mother-in-law criticizes
everything. You do the
best you can. Kids will
remember happy times,
not perfect cakes. Laugh
about it and make-a funny
story. Maybe let them help
bake a new one, or make.
easy-bake cookies,
instead. Who cares? Don't
try to do it all, either. Have
guests bring a dish or
decide not to make
everything from scratch.
Older kids can help, too.
If you asked a lot of
adults what they remem-
ber about the holidays, it
usually comes down to
family, both good and bad.
What people remember
are experiences. Maybe
you won't find the perfect
gifts or cook a perfect
meal, but if you enjoy the
holidays, taking pleasure
in the things you do and
not worrying about the
things you can't do, your
family will enjoy them,
too.

and accounting.


When I look at some of my past advertising
and sales tactics, I am not always proud.
But I have evolved as my customers have
evolved. My customers' expectations, level
of education and sophistication are much
higher today. Your customers are no different.
My remarks are made sincerely and with a
positive intent toward you and your custom-
ers. I am not trying to tell you
how to run your business. I "Al)' CU
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your expectati
customers.


Virtually every car dealer of eauuc
in Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a SOphistic
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500 much hig
to nearly $1,000. This. extra
charge is programmed into
your computer It has been made illegal in

news. After eliminat-
rofit per car did drop
f the dealer fee, but
was nnw nivinn them


a fair shake and quoting a complete out-the-
door price with no "surprises". And the word
spread. My volume of car sales began to rise
rapidly. Sure, I was making a few hundred
dollars less per car, but I was selling a lot
more cars. I was and am selling cars to many
of your former customers. My bottom line
has improved, not because I eliminated the
dealer fee, but because I was
tomners' able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
ons, level or used car. You can do the
same.
tion and Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
nation are I think of myself as the new
"sheriff" that has come to
er today." "clean up South Florida". In
fact, I am well aware that this
letter is, to some extent, self-
serving Many people will read this letter and
learn why they should buy a car from me,
and not you. And, I am also aware that most
dealer- who read this will either get angry and
ignore or not have the courage to follow my
lead But maybe you will be the exception. If
you have any interest in following my lead,
call me anytime. I don't have a secretary and
I don I screen any of my phone calls. I would
tc.ve to chat with you about this.

to wait a month for
jii, IlIii4i new to be

appears every couple of
hours.
What kind of informa-

All sorts of good infor-

Some is related to
computers in general, but
just about every day they
post good, how-to infor-

information about the
Linux Ubuntu operating'

too.
However, computers are
not it.i il'-, thing they

shopping or even how to
sanitize your cubicle so
your work environment is

I like the site because the
information is concise and
written in a way that is
easy to understand. And,
since there is so much
available on the site, I
don't feel like I'm missing
anything if I skip an article
that is not on an area of
interest to me.
There are also com-
ments. Lots and lots of
comments. Every time you
read an article there are
comments at the end (you
can add your own after a
brief sign-up). Sometimes
you can glean more advice
from others who may be in
a similar situation.
Where do they get all this
information?
They link to the sites that
have all this information
and gather it together in
one place, making it easy
to find. They are an
"aggregator," taking the
aggravation out of finding
useful information on the
Web.
When you first arrive at
LifeHacker:com, you will
first notice a "username,"'
"password" and "log in"
button followed by a "new

Look down a bit farther

reading what they have

time to time I may try a
search for "downloads."
If you are like me then
you probably appreciate
"free stuff" and doing a

~id~l~S~








Formula of champions is


not to gamble with your life


ur very first impres-
sion is always the
best when we are
open, listening to, trusting
and acting on it.
This is the gut instinct at
work. The gut instinct is
connected to the universal
SIntI m It says, "This feels
good. My heart is in it. I
want to do it." Or, it says,
"My heart isn't in it. I really
don't want to do it."
Until we get to the point of
emotional and spiritual
development and belief
where we honor these first
impressions, we still
struggle.
Why? Because our
instincts tell us very clearly
when to act if we are
listening to them. Then, the
head gets in the way. We talk
ourselves out of this inner.
truth and guidance because
of fear, doubt and'indeci-
sion.
As a rule, we think way too
much when we should be
waiting and listening for the
true answers to pop up into
the mind. Very likely third
to a half of our vitality and
life force is wasted because
of wasted analytical think-
ing. Are you tired of being
mentally tired much of the
time? There is a much better
way to live.
Abundance lives within
the heart and spirit of every
living human. It isn't just
about money. The true path
to freedom is within us and
yearns to be set free. The
true spiritual life is one of
love, peace, health, prosper-
ity, faith, creativity and joy.
How happy are you?
There are two paths in life.
The first is living by the
"outer" path and ways of the
world, duality and chance.
The other is living by the
"inner" journey, choice and
the oneness it offers. When
w ve by the "outer" ways
we will always be stressed,
fearful and barely get by.
Living by chance is the
same as gambling. In Las
Vegas, if we throw the dice
enough times we will
occasionally hit the jackpot.
If we play for a long time,
we will eventually lose our
shirt, because the house has
the edge. The odds are
against us.
When we say in life, "I
hope this happens," or "I
hope that happens," we are
living by chance. This is the
same as expecting the
universe to grow our crop
for us without planting the,
seeds: It isn't going to
happen. The universe helps
those who help themselves.
However, living by choice
and trusting our "inner"
guidance and taking
positive action is "the
formula of champions."
Do you want more good in


life? You can have it. Inside
you right now is a champion
yearning to be set free. The
process starts by focusing
your mind inward and
doing something that you
truly love. This psyches us
up.
Every one of us has a true
calling and at least one
major talent in life lying
dormant since birth. It's our
job to activate it. It can
happen at any age. It has
nothing to do with wealth,
education or experience.
Finding it is the single most
important thing we ever do
with our lives outside of
being born of our mother
and giving life to our
children.
When we rediscover and
feed and protect our
precious inner child, he or
she begins to give back in
appreciation and show us
what makes us truly happy.
This emotional maturity is
the foundation for spiritual
and creative growth.
Growth can't happen
without change. If we
become complacent in life,
we get stuck, sidetracked or
lost. Get back on track. Take
the plunge. You can do it.
Refuse to let fear or negative
people hold you back.
We are all spiritual royalty
and winners in the game of
your own and family needs
first. When thy champion
emerges, take care of your
own and family needs first.
Then give back to your
spiritual family. Share your
good. Help those who
inspired and encouraged
you on your journey. Then
pass the torch to the next
generation.wanting to learn
your secrets. Give back. In
the giving we receive
tenfold.
This is a magnificent life
well lived. The sweetest
news the best yet to come.

SHELLEY KOPPEL
Treasure Coast Scene


'Todd'

wins

over

crowds
In the first 'Scene' col-
umn last summer, I
asked readers if they
thought the Treasure Coast
was ready for a Stephen
Sondheim show.
If the first audience at
the recent StarStruck
Performing Arts Center's
production of the school
edition of "Sweeney Todd"
was an indication, the
answer is.a resounding yes.
The audience responded
to the darkly macabre,
often funny production
with tremendous excite-
ment at what they were
seeing. It was so easy to
forget that the performers
were teens, some as young
as 13 and 14.
, They brought a maturity
to their roles that kept
them from being carica-
tures.
I had first seen many of
these young actors in
"Rent" in the-spring;
Philippe Arroyo, who
played Angel then and
portrayed Tobias in
"SweeneyTodd, is only
14; the tennis and basket-
ball-playing teen wants to
be a doctor, but he has a
capacity to lose himself in
a role that is wonderful.
James Channing as
Sweeney Todd and Brittany
Weir as Mrs. Lovett are
veterans of many Treasure
Coast productions and in
this production they
showed the audience the
polish and professionalism
that you expect to see on a
larger stage. They both
plan careers in the theater
and it truly doesn't seem an,
impossible dream for such
gifted performers.
Also notable in the cast
were Alyssa Beckman as
Johanna, Kevin Connor as
Anthony, Robert Johnston
as Judge Turpin, Amanda
Paul as Pirelli and Jaimee
Smith as the Beggar
Woman.
The sets were wonderful,
and Jennifer Jones, the
director said that it was the
most technically challeng-
ing production she'd ever

The Pineapple Playhouse Kids will present a revue, "How to Eat Like a Child" at the Pineapple Playhouse in Fort
Pierce on December 1-2.


Pineapple Playhouse Kids put

on a show aimed just for kids


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
There isn't a lot of children's the-
ater in St. Lucie County, but the
Pineapple Playhouse is trying to
change that.
On Dec. 1-2, you can see local
kids, many from the Playhouse's
summer camp, performing in a
revue called "How to Eat Like a
Child."
The event is not only a sholiicase
of the children's talents; it is a


fundraiser for the Pineapple Play-
house and serves as the annual toy
drive for St. Lucie County firefight-
ers.
All theater-goers are asked to
bring a new, unwrapped toy to be
distributed to needy kids in St.
Lucie County.
Debbie Johnson, who runs the
summer program and is directing
the production, spoke recently
about what she hopes to achieve
with this special sho\\.
"After the camp, there's nio other


opportunity for the kids to show
what they've learned," Ms. John-
son said.
"Also, every child is in a show in
camp. I asked the board if there
could be an opportunity for the
children to audition and put on a
main stage production. We have
23 children ages 7-14 and they are
doing wonderfully. "How to eat
Like a Child" is. 24 musical lessons
in.Jife about being a child. Some,

Rehersals hone 'Cinderella'


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Opening night looms and
rehearsals for "Cinderella" are
more intense.
In September and October,
rehearsals were broken down
into scenes, so that the entire
cast was not rehearsing at the
same time.
The King and Queen
rehearsed together and then
began coming to rehearsals
with the ensemble. Cinderella
and the fairy Godmother
rehearsed their scenes on a
different night. Dancing was
worked out separately from
singing.
For Jami Dolan, the direc-
tor, it's weaving all the strands
of the tapestry together for the
finished product.
In the theatre, as in life,
things don't always go as
planned. People have emer-
gencies and can't come to
rehearsal or have to drop out
all together.
The Fairy Godmother has
had to leave the cast and has
been replaced by Sharon
Owens, who had not audi-
tioned because of other com-
mitments, but who is step-
ping in the breach.
I -have had to drop out
because a medical emergency
that means I can't go to all the
rehearsals, which are now
most evenings and on week-
ends as opening night nears.
In addition, the cast is help-
ing Darren Cripps, the set
designer, paint the sets on a
Saturday when rehearsals are
not scheduled.
When tech week starts, just
before the play opens, the cast


will be responsible for moving
the props, sets and costumes
from the rehearsal space into
the Lyric Theatre. They'll also
begin their first rehearsal at
the theater.
This night is the first run-
through of the first act. Until
now, scenes have been
rehearsed separately.
Ms. Dolan has coped with
cast changes, missing props,
traffic jams and every other
kind of distraction and says
that tonight may not be pretty.
"It's going to be a zoo," Ms.
Dolan said. "It's expected.
This is where we find our
weak areas, the places we
need to work on. It's also the
first time the cast gets to see
what everyone else is doing."
As the cast mills around
waiting for rehearsal, I am dis-
tracted by two men in heels
and skirts who are discussing
the back pain high heels
cause.
When not in skirts, they are
Travis Eaton and Shane Blan-
ford; tonight they are the Ugly
Stepsisters and, indeed, they
make very ugly women.
Tonight I hear performers I
haven't heard before. Mark
Fetterly, from Lake Worth;
who teaches drama at Palm
Beach Lakes High School in
West Palm Beach, is the;
Prince. He is dark and Josie
Murray, Cinderella, is fair.
They are the Disney charac-
ters come to life.
Vicki Goulet, who is the
stage manager and is oversee-
ing all the details of the pro-
duction, pulls a skirt on over
her jeans and she is the step-
mother. After she sings her
solo, the cast bursts into


applause.
Ms. Dolan warns the cast
that they will have only 10-15
seconds between each scene
to whisk the props and sets off
the stage and bring the new
ones on.
Cast members have been
told what they will be moving
and told to do it fast."I can't
stand dead air or slow set
changes," the director says.
With only two weeks to go, I
have already learned a great
deal about the theater. I have
learned that every member of
the cast is critical to the show's
success, and even a small part
has to be rehearsed often and
meshed in with everyone else.
Everyone has to know
where to be on stage at all
times, especially in relation to
other performers. I have
gained tremendous respect
for the cast and crew, who
work all day and then give up
evenings and weekends to
rehearse. They do it because
they love the theater.
With several weeks until
opening night, there are still
things that can go wrong, but
Ms. Dolan is confident they
can deal with any problems:
"This is theater," she said.
"We can find a way."

tions presents "Cinderella" for

Theatre, 59 S.W Flagler Ave.,

OH N ILH t HI INMENI


Pretend turkey is large chickento quell cooking anxiety


H ello, smart shoppers.
I owe you the biggest
apology ever. How I
messed up and gave you
Thanksgiving's column after
the holiday, I will never
know.
I've been asked if the
Grammy Guru is a real per-
son. Now you know that it
is true. So, for those of you
who want turkey for Christ-
mas, this column is for you.
Any brand of turkey will
do, it's how you cook the
turkey will determine its
moistness. For my turkey, I
make my German Aunt
Margie's Sausage Stuffing.
According to my daughter-
in-law, Lisa, "It should be
patented!"
Roasting your first turkey
can be a terrifying cooking
experience. However, it
isn't hard to cook a turkey:
Just pretend it's a very large
chicken. I have given you
vegetable recipes in past
columns. Our vegetable
menu is mashed potatoes,
candied yams, mashed
rutabaga, German-style
spinach corn casserole and
"green bean casserole, plus
nuts, pies and fruit.
Make as many foods as
possible a day or two
before to make your life
easier.

Cookbooks: Check out
my cookbook special at the
end of the column. To all
my fans who are eagerly
awaiting my second book,
believe me I am eager to
get it finished. I'll keep you
posted.

The Guru's Special Hint:
When buying roll pork
sausage it is best to buy a
name brand such as Jimmy
Dean or Tennessee Pride.
They're more expensive but.
there is very little fat to
drain off, so, there's more
sausage.

ROAST TURKEY

Thaw turkey, remove
giblets from the cavity and
neck, (no, it didn't come
already stuffed). Save
roasting instructions from
the turkey bag. Remove any
fat and soak the bird in
cold salted water for at
least one hour. Doing this
gives the meat a fresher


flavor.
Rinse and dry with paper
towels. Rub turkey with
canola oil and sprinkle
with salt and pepper. To
roast a small turkey, place
breast side down on aV-
rack. Turn breast side up
the last half hour of
roasting.
Another trick for a
perfect bird is to season
and place it in a paper
supermarket bag. Place in
large roasting pan and
leave bag open. No basting
is necessary. Tear open bag
the last half hour, baste
and roast until golden.
For a very large turkey,
place it in a heavy roasting
pan, season as directed.
Make a tent of heavy duty
aluminum foil and place
over top of turkey. This will
prevent the moisture from
escaping. Baste occasional-
ly and roast until done.
Remove foil about 1/2 hour
before for a crisp crackly
skin.
If you choose to stuff the
turkey, be sure the stuffing
is cooled; bacteria can
grow when you place hot
stuffing into a cold bird.
Loosely stuff both the body
and neck cavity; the
stuffing swells as the bird
cooks. Close openings with
turkey skewers and string.
Tie wings and legs, and
roast as directed on the
package.
Last year, we chose a 20-
pound bird. To free the
oven for the vegetables. I
tried an old method and
timed it.
Put the turkey, tented
with foil, in a 200-degree
oven at 10 p.m. the night
before. At 10 a.m., set the
oven to 325 degrees. Cook
about 2 hours or until a
meat thermometer insert-
ed in the thigh registers
170-180 degrees. Increase
time according to size.
Baste often. You'll get a
tender and juicy bird. You
can also remove the turkey
from the oven in the
morning and put it back
into a pre-heated oven 2
hours before you plan to
serve.
For an end result that is
easier for serving and lower
in fat, place stuffing in a
large covered casserole
rather than in the bird. Put


ARLENE BORG
Romancing the Stove
with the Grammy Guru

in oven the last hour and
baste with a squirt of
turkey drippings. Make
gravy as instructed in a
previous column.

TURKEY STUFFING

Enough for a large
turkey, 22 pounds or more.
Recipe can be cut in half or
freeze the extra.

1 pound pork sausage (roll)
4 large onions, chopped
8 small or 6 large stalks
celery, chopped
1 tablespoon canola oil


Turkey liver, chopped
(optional) ,
2 teaspoons sage
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped
parsley
1 large loaf white bread
2 cups chicken broth,
canned or homemade

Break up sausage and
brown in skillet. Drain and
set aside. Add canola oil to
skillet. Saute onion, celery
and turkey liver.*
Add seasonings.
Return sausage to pan
and cook a few minutes. In
a large bowl, break bread
into small pieces.
Add sausage mixture and
broth. Mix thoroughly.
Taste. Add more salt if
necessary. Cool and stuff
turkey or cook in casserole
as explained in turkey
recipe.
Liver can be discarded
or added raw to cooled
stuffing. It will cook in the
baking.

Let's talk: Arlene Borg,
the Grammy Guru, is
available for talks from
south Vero to Hobe Sound.

mounted.
The split level setting
with a shoot for disposing
of "dead" bodies without
hurting live actors was
wonderful, and Todd
Bearden, the technical
director, deserves praise for
that and for the oven in
which Mrs. Lovett bakes
her pies.
The makeup by Gigi
Channing, costumes by
Judith Williams and the
music, played as always, by
Peter Jones, evoked Lon-


don's dark side.
Martin County man to
introduce film on
hidden children
Palm City resident Peter
Feigl, one of many chil-
dren hidden from the
Nazis by Quakers in
France during World War
II, will introduce the film,
"The Hidden Children," a
BBC documentary about
how the children were
rescued and concealed, at
the Blake Library on Dec. 6
at 2 p.m.
Mr. Feigl's family fled


Austria in 1938 and lived
in Belgium until the
German invasion of that
country. The young boy
fled to France with his
mother, where they were
held for six weeks in a
French concentration
camp and released. His
father joined them, but in
1942, during a roundup of
Jews in France, his parents
were sent to Auschwitz
and killed.
Peter Feigl was helped to
'escape by Quakers who
sent him tO a mountain,
village where he was
hidden for nine months.
He was given false identify


papers and sent to board-
ing school, but after the SS
raided the town where he
was hidden, he was helped
by Christian and Jewish
organizations to cross the
border illegally into
Switzerland. He was 15.
He came to the United
States in 1946, served in
the U.S. Air Force, and
worked in government and
business. He and his wife,
LeonieWarshauer, have
been married for 53 years
and have lived in Palm
City since 1990.

Like "How to Torture Your
Sister," are funny; some
touch the heart. Each
vignette is solo or with sev-
eral children. The kids are
having a great time. I'm
amazed at how they're
doing, especially as they
only rehearse one hour a
week," she added.
The director is particu-
larly pleased at the oppor-
tunity to showcase these
youngsters.
"These kids might never
audition for other things,"
she said. "They've not
been the stars in other
productions, but what
they're doing with this is
superb."


Ms. Johnson, who had a
dance studio in St. Lucie
County for 25 years before
retiring, still teaches sen-
iors part-time at Long-
wood Regional Medical
Center.
''I relate best to older
and younger people," she
said. "You've got to be
willing to be silly and be
laughed at."

Great gifts for golfers range from


gyms to Hugs to novels on the game


Happy Black Friday.
If you are like most
true shoppers, you
are heading out to fight
the crowds and grab every
bargain you can find.
For those with a golfer
on that shopping list,
finding just the right gift
can be a bit difficult.
Lucky for you, I'm here to
help.
Clubs and golf balls can
be a very personal thing to
a golfer. Some of us are
picky when it comes to a
certain golf ball or equip-
ment company. With that
in mind, my suggestion
would be that unless the
golfer on your list specifi-
cally asked for them it's
best to steer clear of those
items.
Shape up: We're all
looking to get in shape.
Golf Gym
(www.golfgym.com) has
been in the fitness indus-
try for more than 20 years.
This company offers a
large line of products
designed to improve your
game and body. Most of
their products also fit
easily into a golf bag,
allowing the golfer to have
his or her own golf gym
with them at any time, on

bag, but wants to walk
while playing, the latest
Speed Carts, featuring
light weight, fold-down
construction and three
wheels, are just the thing.
ER Get some netting:
Since most of us work long
hours; chances are we
don't have the time to hit
ng the range and practice. A
,y net for the backyard would
ym's make a great gift for that
closed busy golfer on your list.

w.sun- thing.
est Almost like the real
est thing: Some golfers prefer
sand not tohit into a net,
and wanting to see how their
shots fly. For them, Almost
Golf balls (www.almost-
golf com) is the way to go.
(ou These weight training balls
.er accurately fly no farther
than 100 yards and are off-
arry a
course safe. I've played
with mine in the yard, in'
b the house and down my
street. They bounce off
everything without doing
damage.
Perfecting putts: A
'SL fantastic fool for the golfer
needing to improve his or
her putting stroke is the
Putting Arc (www. thep-
uttingarc.com). This
device comes in three
models, each designed to
create a perfect arched
putting stroke. In fact,
professional players using
the Putting Arc have
accounted for 123 wins
worldwide in 2007.
Accessorize: Golfers
love to be different. For
proof, just look at our
-fashion sense. One way to
007 personalize our game and
equipment is by using
unique headcovers on our


woods or putters. There
are several companies that
feature animals, sports
teams, and more to cover
.your clubs with.
Get colorful: Another
way for your golfer to be
unique is with Shaft Skinz
(www.shaftskinz. corn).
This unique, new, must-
have accessory is the only
way to custom color
shafts. In less than four
minutes you can convert a
club using a hair drier and
no need to remove the
grip.
Golf novels: For those
of us who prefer to read, J.
Michael Veron is my
favorite golf author. His
fiction books, "The-Great-
est Player Who Never
Lived," "The Greatest
Course That Never Was"
and "The Caddie," are
great reads and can be
found at any bookstore or
online.
Self help: In the world
of golf instruction, my
friend Roger Gunn
(www.golflevels.com) is
one of the best. His series
of DVDs is designed to
help golfers of all abilities
to better play and enjoy
the game.
Of course, apparel: If
you're looking for some-
thing a little more person-
al or unique, give some
thought to a shirt, towel,
cap or ball marker from
your golfer's favorite
course or dream course.
You can even pick up the
phone and call Pinehurst
or Pebble Beach and
purchase items over the
phone. Most courses will
gladly accept your credit
card and ship the items
right to you.
Whatever you decide to
do for the golfer on your
holiday list, that person
will be happy that it came
from you, and that you
thought enough to find
something special for a
gift.
Just stay away from the
"naked lady" tees, please.

Port St. Lucie coming


alive with holiday spirit


Downtown Fort Pierce


stores boast unique gifts


BY RITA HART
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE Even before the
Thanksgiving leftovers are gone, the
city will begin to come alive with the
sights and sounds of the December hol-
iday season.
On Friday, Nov. 30, Tradition will hold
its annual Holiday Tree Lighting cere-
mony, beginning at 6 p.m.
During the evening, carolers will be
strolling the streets, the Community
Band will be performing holiday music
and families can enjoy a kiddie train
ride or a hay ride.
Santa, of course, is rumored to be
making an appearance.
And where else but Florida can you
top off a holiday celebration with fire-
works, as Tradition will that evening.
The hay rides and kiddie train rides
will continue on weekends throughout
the holiday season. Also expected to
make an appearance is the Avenue D
Choir, a magician. Those brave enough
to sing in public will have the chance to
do so via karaoke.
Details about specific times are still


being completed. All final details will be
posted on Tradition's Web site, www.tra-
ditionfl.com.
Other holiday events hosted by the
city are:
*Fence decorating Wed., Dec. 5 at
City Hall from 4 to 5 p.m. According to
Ed Cunningham, interim communica-
tions director for the city, the artificial
tree that will sit in front of City Hall will
come with decorations intact. There-
fore, in order to allow children and resi-
dents to participate in holiday decorat-
ing, the fence that will surround the tree
will be decorated a day before the tree
lighting takes place.
On Thurs., Dec. 6, the city of Port St.
Lucie will light up its 30-foot tree in
front of City Hall, with ceremonies
beginning at 5:45 p.m.
Winter Wonderland Light Show -
Dec. 6 through Jan. 1 (weather permit-
ting) at the Port St. Lucie Community
Center, 2195 Airoso Blvd.
Mr. Cunningham said this is the sec-
ond year for this light show, which is
synchronized with music and will be lit

FORT PIERCE -We've got it all.
That's the message Fort Pierce
vendors are looking to get out this
holiday season, because their
shops, they say, have something to
stuff every stocking.
"Shoppers don't have to go very
far," said Jo Pye, who owns The Gift
Horse on 205 Orange Ave.
From fresh baked treats for pets,
to jewelry parties, work from Czech
artists, psychedelic hand-made
soaps and mix-and-match packages
of Belgian beer, downtown stores
offer a wide range of selection and
prices.
"There's so much variety, it's hard
to pick just one," Yuko Weisser said
of the gift choices at her shop, PP.
Cobb General Store and
Delicatessen at 100 Avenue A. "It's
not for everybody, but there's a lot
of unique stuff here."


Her business features 300 vari-
eties of beer, including ales from
Belgium and Scotland.
A "make-your-own-six-pack"
special, priced from around $11 to
$19, allows shoppers to select their
brews.
A similar option allows selection
of the store's popular Island Grove
salad dressings and hot sauce for a
mix-and-match gift set.
Some of the quirky stocking
stuffers include tin art, painted
three-dimensi6nal ornaments,
necklaces influenced by
Columbian-Indian artists and
"smokeless" Japanese incense in 20
scents.
One of the top sellers is its hand-
made herbal soaps, created by
Cherokee Indians in rosemary mint,
sandalwood patchouli, "morning"
and "rain" fragrances.

Keepsake Quilt Shoppe L


encourages age-old craft


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
With the cool weather now upon us
and the holidays just around the cor-
ner, there's no better time than the
present to take up the art of quilting
and begin crafting a Christmas present
that will become a family heirloom for
generations.
The Keepsake Quilt Shoppe on South
U.S. 1 in Port St. Lucie offers classes for
beginning, intermediate and advanced
quilting students, with day, afternoon
and evening classes to work around
your schedule.
Owner Pam Clark is herself relatively
new to the craft, hling learned the art
just a few years ago.'
"It was something that I had wanted
to learn how to do," she said. "I decided
that I liked it so much that I opened my
own store."
A 26-year resident of the Treasure
Coast, Ms. Clark opened the 2000
square-foot store in 2003, which offers
area quilters top-of-the-line quilting
supplies such as 100-percent cotton


fabrics, licensed series embroidery
design collections, patterns, quilting
books, notions and more. Although the
shop sells no quilts, many of Ms.-
Clark's adorn the walls.
She also stocks a full line of Brother
sewing and embroidery machines, as
well as offering service and repair on
other machines. Customers interested
in quilting have come from as far away
as Miami and Daytona Beach, she
added.
The Keepsake Quit Shoppe boasts a
complete staff of quilting teachers and
offers classes daily. Even novices can
call to schedule an introductory class
to the craft.
The store is located at 10778 S. Fed-
eral Highway in the Sandpiper Plaza on
the east side of U.S. 1.
Hours of operation are from 9 am. to
5 p.m. on Mondays, Thursdays and Fri-
days, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednes-
days and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sat-
urdays.
For more information call (772) 337-
7728 or visit the Web site at
www.kqsquilts.com.

Pampering takes on holiday


flair at Sanctuary Spa


Holiday happenings


in St. Lucie County


BY RITA HART
Staff writer

PORT ST. LUCIE Ladies aren't the
only ones being pampered this holiday
season at the Sanctuary Spa
The staff at Sanctuary Spa at Tradition in
Port St. Lucie realized many of its female
patrons were expressing a wish that the
men in their lives could learn how to give a
massage as good as the ones offered at the
Spa.
'A lot of the ladies come in and say'Why
don't you teach him how to give me a foot
rub like this,'" said Gina Grothe, co-owner
of the Sanctuary Spa
From those comments grew the idea for
"Gentleman's Night Out," a special event
to be held at the Sanctuary Spa on
Wednesday, Dec. 12 from 5 to 8 p.m.
On that night,-men can enjoy massages,
facials, sport pedicures and sport mani-
cures at the special price of $30 each,
while listening to the smooth sounds of
jazz and blues. Each gentleman will
receive a complimentary coffee mug and
cigar.
While there, the men may also find a
wonderful gift to give the special woman
in their life, as the Sanctuary Spa offers gift


certificates for their many services. Reser-
vations for this special evening are recom-
mended.
The Sanctuary Spa at Tradition also
invites the public to their third annual
Holiday Celebration, to be held on Satur-
day, Dec. 8 at 7 p.m.
Complimentary hors d'oeuvres,
desserts, complimentary chair massages
and spa giveaways will all be offered while
live classical music from a string quartet
fills the spa.
Through the month of December, the
Sanctuary Spa offers:
*BerryLicious Facials, a gentle exfoliat-
ing facial peel with raspberry and cherry
scents. The facial includes deep pore
cleansing, exfoliation, a facial peel
masque, heated aromatic towels, an
upper body massage and moisturizer. It is
a 50-minute experience for only $69.
*Eucalyptus Massage, to soothe the ten-
sion and stress that often crop up during
the holidays. The massage includes heat-
ed aromatic towels and a scalp massage. A
50-minute massage is $68; a 30-minute
massage is $45.
*Peppermint Foot Reflexology-Just $40

Great gifts at Manatee Center


BY SAMANTHA JOSEPH
Staff writer
FORT PIERCE Don't expect to find
only tourist knickknacks at the Manatee
Center's store.
Operators of the Fort Pierce shop say
it's a gift store in the truest sense of the
word emphasis on the "gift."
"People think it's a souvenir shop, and
that they're going to see key chains and
shot glasses. But we have so much


more," said Meredith Bennett, buyer at
the Vanishing Mermaid, a unique gift
shop adjacent to the Manatee Observa-
tion and Education Center at 480 N.
Indian River Drive.
"We have little souvenir items, like
any gift shop would have, but we also
have really stunning items especially
our jewelry," she added.

Every year during the holidays, shop-
pers fight the crowds to find just that per-
fect gift. Sure, clothing, jewelry or a plasma
TV make great presents, but for a Christ-
mas gift that will provide fond memories
for years to come, consider a travel gift
certificate from Jensen Beach Travel Ser-
vice.
In operation for 39 years, owners Toley
and Helen Engebretsen and their staff can
offer you professional advice on choosing
just the right trip to make Christmas
morning even more special.
If you'd like an all-inclusive vacation
during which you only have to unpack
your bags once, consider a cruise. Jensen
Beach Travel offers both Caribbean and
European itineraries ranging from three to
seven nights during the upcoming winter
season.
Or, for a unique Down Under experi-
ence, opt for the 16-day land tour of Aus-
tralia and New Zealand on Feb. 26. Closer
to home, you can give the gift of America's
oldest city, with the three-day, two-night
bus tour of historic and charming St
Augustine.


Jensen Beach Travel also offers a num-
ber of day trips and excursions from
which to choose, which make great gifts
and are even a great way to pamper your-
self during the sometimes stressful period
leading up to the holidays. These include a
tour of Lake Wales' famous Bok Tower, fol-
lowed by dinner at Chalet Suzanne on
Dec. 5; a Tony Bennett concert at the King
Center in Melbourne following an early
dinner at Marsh Landing on Dec. 9; and a
Christmas shopping trip to Sawgrass Mills
in Broward County on Dec. 12.
To really get in the spirit of the season
and perhaps find an unusual gift or two,
be sure and reserve your spot on the
Mount Dora Christmas Walk on Dec. 7.
This enchanting Central Florida town rolls
out the red carpet for its annual Christmas
celebration featuring live music, handi-
crafts and more.
Mrs. Engebretsen says that the 2008
tour brochures are now ready, so be sure
and visit the agency at 1991 N.E. Jensen
Beach Boulevard for more tour options
and a copy of a newsletter detailing the
trips as welL

Volunteering is the holiday gift that keeps on giving


BY WENDY DWYER
For Hometown News


'Tis the season and you know
you've been there before.
Pacing the malls, surfing the Web
and racking your brain trying to come
up with the perfect gift for someone
special or worse still, something
for that co-worker, friend or loved
one who has everything.
This year, do yourself a favor.
Instead of settling for a gift certificate
or yet another sweater or tie they'll
only return or re-gift, why not consid-
er the giving gift that keeps on giving?
Instead of spending time and
money buying a gift they may not
want or need, how about a Saturday
morning donating your time or more
on behalf of that special someone at
Habitat for Humanity?
In the past ten years, 24 local
families have achieved the dream of
home ownership because of people
just like you who helped by making a
donation of time, talent or treasure to
Habitat for Humanity.
It's not a handout by any stretch of
the imagination. Each Habitat family

goes through a stringent application
process, financial counseling and
donates hundreds of hours of their
own "sweat equity" in order to qualify
for a Habitat mortgage.
If you can't lift a hammer or find
the business end of a coping saw, not
to worry. You can always make a small
donation to help cover costs, or even
make-sandwiches and purchase bags
of chips and soda for Habitat volun-
teers who work up a powerful
appetite.
If you're not into that, or don't have
the time to spend, why not think pink
- Pink Tie, that is.
The Pink Tie Friends is a wonderful
local organization that helps raise
funds to assist women and men
diagnosed with breast cancer and
undergoing treatment.
The Pink Tie Friends help provide
funding for mammograms and
treatment for individuals with no
insurance coverage.
The group offers support, encour-
agement and financial assistance to
individuals who might otherwise be
forced to choose between life-saving
medicine and food for their families.

According to Pat Harrison, presi-
dent of the organization, there are
lots of ways to help the Pink Tie
Friends.
"In addition to supporting the?
fashion shows, luncheons, annual
Pink Tie Gala and many other
fundraising activities of the organiza-
tion, the group produces an annual
calendar featuring women and men
of the community who are battling or
have survived breast cancer," she
said.
For a very reasonable price, you can
purchase copies of this amazing and
local calendar for your friends,
business associates and anyone in
need of inspiration even you!
The 2008 calendar features the
photography of Hometown News
chief photographer, Mitch Kloorfain,
who worked with each of the 'models'
to find out what passions motivated
and inspired them during their battle
with the deadly disease.
Ms. Harrison says this year, Jewelry
Design Studio of Jensen Beach, a
long-time sponsor of Pink Tie Friends
activities, designed and donated two
gorgeous bejeweled Pink Tie


bracelets crusted pink sapphires and
diamonds. "One bracelet is in white
gold and one in yellow gold," she
said.
Each one-of-a-kind bracelet is
valued at $3,700 and only 500
chances are available to win the
bracelets, which will be raffled off a
special party and drawing on Nov. 30,
at Jewelry Design Studios at 6 p.m.
"If you have someone in your life
who's had breast cancer," said Ms.
Harrison, "this is like buying a lottery
ticket for them and what a perfect
way to show their support for victory
over breast cancer."
To see the bracelets, buy chances or
order calendars, stop by the Pink Tie
Friends Web site at
www.pinktiefriends.org, or you can
purchase tickets at BloomingDeals
Consignment Shop and Jewelry
Design Studios.
Is food more your passion?
If so, why not consider sponsoring

The Pink Tie Friends 2008 calendar
makes a great gift that serves a cause
as well. Proceeds from the calendar
benefit breast cancer patients with
little or no insurance in St Lucie,

year's calendar features survivors
doing what they are passionate about
and missed most while undergoing
their treatments. Lynn Tiffany of Fort

new twist on holiday gatherings.
Her store, Beads and Baubles, hosts
jewelry parties.
"Instead of going out to lunch, you
can come over to the shop and make
jewelry for yourself or a friend," said
Ms. Barette.
Guests can bring their own wine
and cheese, or the store can cater
events.
Ms. Barette starts by discussing
guests' skill level, and selects patterns
that allow them to create a piece of
jewelry within the time allotted for
the event.
"So after a two-hour time frame, for
example, you might take home a
bracelet and earrings," she said. "If
you want to have your friends come
in after work, we can do that."
But for shoppers who don't want to


make their own presents, the store
offers a custom jewelry service.
A unique name-bracelet for a baby,
or a special piece for a friend, could
include Venetian glass beads, for
instance, Ms. Barette said.
And don't assume that the material
consists mainly of inexpensive beads,
she adds.
The store carries genuine fresh
water and vintage pearls, Swarovski
crystals, quartz, corals, aquamarine
and turquoise beads.
"We don't do craft, we do a more
high-end jewelry," she said.
The store boasts the largest selec-
tion of beads on Treasure Coast, with
items priced from five cents to $200 a
piece.
"There's a huge variation, and we
really feel that it can be suitable for


everybody's budget," Ms. Barette
said.
At The Barkery on 211 Orange Ave.,
storeowner Terri Palumbo is focusing
on meeting every taste pets and
human alike.
She's stocking up on cookie and
treat jars for the holiday season, as
well as themed bandanas, collars,
and toys for pets.
But the bestseller is likely to be the
fresh-baked Christmas cookies.
"That's probably our biggest thing,"
Ms. Palumbo said.
A few doors away at The Gift Horse,
Ms. Pye focuses on treats for humans.
Her specialty Christmas tea baskets
feature spiced tea and hot chocolate
for two, complete with marshmallows
and chocolate toppings.
"It's everything you need to make


two mugs of hot chocolate," she said.
Her wine baskets, which make great
gifts for hostesses, include a wide
selection of fresh nuts, chocolates
and a choice of red or white wines.
The store also specializes in cus-
tomizing mugs and tumblers with
names, images and college emblems.
"I've been doing this for 20 years,"
Ms. Pye said. "Other stores might sell
them, but they don't take orders like I
do."

Playing video games at 50?
How can that be?
Today's video games are easier,
more fun and more beneficial to your
mind and body than you might think.
As video game consoles have evolved
from toys to sophisticated technolo-
gies, the video game consumer
demographic has expanded beyond
its original base of kids and teenagers
to include adults young and old -
alike.
The games you can play are based
on the type of console you have, like


VHS or Beta movies used to be. There
is the Nintendo Wii (pronounced
wee) console, the Xbox 360 from
Microsoft and the PlayStation 3 (PS3)
from Sony. Console prices range fror
$250 to $479, and game prices start at
around $70.
The Wii is in fact, very popular at
retirement communities around the
country, and is also being used by
hospitals and rehabilitation centers
as an integral part of assisting the
recovery efforts of stroke victims.

Choosing just the right gift for after the holidays are done


ATe all know from first-hand
\ experience how important it is to
WV choose the right gift for some-
one.
We know that the thought we put into
the gift is as important as its worth.
Each of us can think back to a birthday,
anniversary, or holiday when someone
close to us gave us something that was
truly meaningful to us because of the
thoughtfulness behind it.
Maybe they put together a photo album
of treasured moments. Maybe they gave
us a trip, which opened our eyes and
broadened our minds.
While gifts can reflect thoughtfulness,
they can also reflect carelessness or.
insensitivity.
Each of us can probably remember
thoughtless or inappropriate gifts we have
received over the years. Maybe we were
given woolen gloves when we never stray
from warm climes. Maybe we were given
a photo album with several pictures of a
recently divorced spouse.
Gifts and bequests also can be made
either thoughtfully or carelessly.
Here are some examples of bequests,
which are thoughtful or careless:
You fail to plan at all and die without a
will. This is careless because it leaves your
loved ones with numerous loose ends to

Estate Planning

tie up and subjects your assets to probate,
lessening the amount they will receive.
Further, probate subjects you and your
heirs to the prying eyes of the public.
You fail to do taxplanning.
Again, this could cost your loved ones
much ofwhat you had intended them to
have. Poor income, estate, and other tax
planning could levy an unnecessary tax
equal to the majority of your assets.
You leave assets in trust when appro-
priate.
Often the most thoughtful way for you
to leave assets to loved ones is to leave
those assets in trust. By leaving the assets


in trust, you can help your beneficiary
shield those assets from estate taxes and
from their own creditors. In addition,
leaving the assets in trust can help the
beneficiary to protect those assets from
division in the event of divorce.
You can leave assets for your beneficiar-
ies in a way that encourages them to
continue to grow.
Sometimes, when beneficiaries inherit
a significant sum of money, they cease to
have the ambition they once had.
Inheritances destroy the lives of some
beneficiaries, depriving them of self-
esteem and sending them into a down-
ward spiral of substance abuse and self-
loathing.
For beneficiaries like these, a Family
Incentive Trust would provide them the
benefit of the assets, without the down-
side. A Family Incentive Trust, "FIT," is
very flexible and can make distributions
to a beneficiary based on criteria that you
set
A FIT can be used to match the benefi-
ciary's earned salary. The match rate
could be higher for low paying occupa-
tions that serve society as a whole, such as
teaching.
If one of your beneficiaries has medical
needs requiring governmental assistance,
now or in the future, you can leave assets


in a special needs trust.
By leaving him or her the assets in a
special needs trust, the beneficiary will
not be disqualified from receiving
governmental assistance such as
Medicaid.
The assets in the trust may still be
used for the benefit of the beneficiary's
"special needs," essentially expenses
beyond the essentials.
On the other hand, if the assets are
left to the beneficiary outright, they
might cause a disruption of governmen-
tal benefits and the assets would need
to be exhausted prior to resumption of
the governmental assistance.
As with other gifts, bequests can be
thoughtful or thoughtless.
A qualified estate planning attorney
can help you plan your estate so that
you can give your children or other
beneficiaries a gift of thoughtfulness
that they will remember long after you
are gone.

Volunteering
From page 8


new home on Avenue D in Fort
Pierce, or making a regular donation
of food or finances in honor of your
loved one or business associate to
Mustard Seed Ministries in Martin
County or the Treasure Coast Food
Bank that serves Martin, St. Lucie,
and Indian River counties?
These wonderful programs work
hard all year long to provide nutri-
tious food and emergency assistance
to thousands of families and individ-
uals in our community.
This year, more than ever before,
there is an increase in the number of
'working poor' on the Treasure Coast
- families and individuals who are
working hard, but are just unable to
make ends meet because of job loss,
layoffs, the sagging construction
market, illness or tragedy.
Most Americans live one or two
paychecks away from being in this
situation themselves, and what better
way to instill a sense of sharing and
community in your own family or
company than to help provide the
most basic need food, for members
of the community who are in crisis.
SafeSpace, the shelter and resource


center for victims, female and male,
of domestic violence and their
children, is always in great need of
simple things like toothbrushes,
personal hygiene products, dispos-
able diapers, blankets and even new
clothing for women and children who
have been forced to flee their homes
without the luxury of packing.
Something as simple as a pair of
drugstore eyeglasses goes a long, long
way for a woman who has fled a
dangerous situation and is trying to
start over with a new job, new atti-
tude and a new, safe life.
There's something about the
holidays that brings out the best in
every one of us, young and old, rich
and poor.
For some it's a renewal of faith, for
some a chance to become an example
for children and grandchildren and
for some it's simply a matter of that
feeling that grabs us all during the
holiday season the spirit of giving.
Even the coldest and meanest
among us seems to soften at least a
tiny bit during the season of giving
and sharing.
Take, for example Dr. Seuss's classic


great green meanie, the Grinch,
whose revelation came high atop
Mount Crumpet.
"And the Grinch, with his Grinch-
feet ice cold in the snow, stood
puzzling and puzzling, how could it
be so? It came without ribbons. It
came without tags. It came without
packages, boxes or bags. And he
puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler
was sore. Then the Grinch thought of
something he hadn't before. What if
Christmas, he thought, doesn't come
from a store? What if Christmas,
perhaps, means a little bit more?"

ment to control video games rather
than just button-pushing, it is a huge
hit with people who have never played
games before, and is also why it is
finding practical applications as well.
The games played on the Wii console
are traditional sports games very
familiar to the 50-and-over genera-
tion: golf, tennis, bowling, baseball
and boxing, and the movements
associated with each of those sports .
are mimicked by the players, using the
controller. No couch potatoes allowed
in these games players are required
to get up and actively participate and
even work up a sweat. The Interna-
tional Sports Sciences Association has
credited the Wii console games as
creating a fresh fitness wave called
"exertainment" and said that it is a
good thing for people of all ages.
For those who remember the rock'n
roll days of their youth, Guitar Hero III
or Rock Band is a great game to play.
This is played on the PS3 or Xbox 360
console. Rather than playing air guitar
or substituting household items for
instruments, the Guitar Hero con-
troller is a plastic guitar that is used to
play along with your favorite song,

The star that led to a king


Matthew 2:1-2 explains
that Jesus was bom in
the town of Bethlehem,
during the reign of King Herod
the Great.
About that time wise men
arrived in Jerusalem asking,
"Where is the newborn King of
the Jews? We have seen His star
in far-away eastern lands, and
-ahave come to worship Him."
What was the star of Bethle-
hem? Did it really exist? There are
three key characteristics of the
star that are interesting.
First, according to Matthew
2:7, It was a star which had newly
appeared. It was previously
unknown, not ordinary.
Secondly, it moved across the
sky slowly The wise men first
saw "His star" in the east. They
came to Jerusalem, where Herod
sent them to Bethlehem. The star
they had seen in the east went
-ahead of them.
Since Bethlehem is almost due
south of Jerusalem, the star must
have moved slowly through the
sky from the east to the south.
This star guided the wise men
from their country, most likely
Arabia or Persia, to Jerusalem.

CIL-~


DAVID GOODE
Religion columnist
This trip would have taken a
period of one to two months.
Thirdly, the star stood over
Bethlehem. Matthew 2:9 says
that the star "stood over the place
where the child was."
There is only one astronomical
object that satisfies the above
criteria, a comet with a "long
tail"
According to astronomers, a
comet newly appears in the sky
and travels slowly, at typically
one to two degrees per day.


A comet can appear to stand
over a place, with the long tail
pointing the head of the comet
to a particular location.
According to ancient Chinese
records, a spectacular comet
with along tail appeared in 5 B.C.
and was visible for seventy days.
Bible historians agree that
Christ was bom around 5 B.C.
due to the inaccuracies of
ancient calendars.
This was the only comet fitting
this description recorded by the
Chinese in the period 20 B.C. to
A.D. 10.
In addition, the Chinese
records reveal that the position
in the sky where the comet first
appeared was in the east This
corresponds with Matthew's
account.
Let us now shift our focus to
the King, the one that this star
led to.
It all happened at the most
remarkable moment in the
history of mankind. A spectacu-
lar thing occurred that even
altered our modem-day calen-
dar.
The time before Christ was
born is indicated by B.C.,


meaning before Christ, The time
after Christ was bom is indicated
by A.D., meaningAnno Domini.
Translated from the Latin, this
means "Year of our Lord".
The triune God, meaning
"three part God," became a man.
The portals of heaven opened
and God the Father extended his
hands of love, and placed his
most precious gift, his only
begotten son into a human
womb.
Jesus was bom, not with the
fanfare of al king, but as one
whose first cries were heard by a
peasant girl named Mary.
Standing beside Mary was the
foster-father of Jesus. He was a
dusty and weary traveler known
as a "just man." He was a
carpenter named Joseph.
He looked like anything but a
king. His face was wrinkled and
red. His cry was the piercing cry
of a dependent baby boy.
Before leaving his father's side
in heaven, this baby ruled the
entire universe.
Now his tiny hands would
grow and become the hands of a
man who would compassionate-
ly touch blind eyes and open ,


them.
His tiny feet would grow and
become the feet of a man who
would walk on water.
This tiny bundle of a baby boy
wold someday grow and
become a man who would
willingly carry a cross up a hill
called Calvary.
During this Christmas season
we should take a moment and
give thanks to God for all he has
done for us.,
As you celebrate the birth of
Christ this Christmas season,
take the hand of loved one and
walk outside into the crisp cool
evening.
Cast your gaze upon the
breathtaking canopy of a star-
studded sky, and be reminded of
a star that led to a King.
