open new

bridge

It's completed

BY RITA HART
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE -
Invited officials were
understandably pleased
at the grand opening of
the Crosstown Parkway
bridge over Florida's Turn-
pike on Nov. 20, which
was completed six
months early and within
the $24 million budget.
At the same time, how-
ever, they stressed the
importance of convincing
state officials and legisla-
tors to allow the construc-
tion of another bridge,
this one over the North
Fork of the St. Lucie River,
completing the
Crosstown Parkway proj-
ect and permitting traffic
to flow from U.S. 1 to 1-95.
"This opening of the
bridge is the.beginning of
an east-west corridor,"
said city councilwoman
Linda Bartz.
"We really need to do
everything we can to get
the bridge (over the St.
Lucie River) going," she
said.

from Eric Alexander. An
additional $100,000 will be
matched by the state.
The scholarships will be
available for both full- and
part-time students. When
fully funded, it is expected
to provide $10,000 to
$15,000 per year in scholar-
ship funds.
In a Nov. 20 ceremony at
FAU held on Mr. Alexan-
der's 94th birthday, univer-
sity officials and Port St.
Lucie Vice Mayor Jack Kelly
honored Mr. Alexander for
his generous gift.
"For our university, this is
a major gift, and we can't
thank you enough," said
Gerri McPherson, the Trea-
sure Coast campus vice-
president.

PORT ST. LUCIE In an
early-morning. operation
on Nov. 27, law enforce-

rounding up suspects as
part of an on-going inves-

"Our main goal is to
identify carriers ... quickly
so that we can ... prevent
the spread to other people
in our community," said
Dr. Kenneth Palestrant.
To determine whether a
person is infected with the
potentially deadly infec-
tion, a nose swab culture is
taken.
The test costs $35.
"If staph is detected,
another simple lab test will
determine if it is MRSA,"
Dr. Palestrant said.
Infected persons will
have to follow up with
their health care provider
for treatment.
To prevent accidentally
contracting MRSA, wash
hands frequently; keep
cuts bandaged until they
are healed; avoid contact
with other people's
wounds; and don't share
personal items, such as
towels or razors.

WATCH THE COFFEE AND DOUGHNUTS
Q: Is there any harm in a quick breakfast of coffee and doughnuts?
A: A nutrition-packed breakfast is the best way to get your day off on the right foot.
when it comes to nutrition, there's not much in a coffee and a doughnut.
Additionally, that selection can damage your teeth. Doughnuts are heavy in sugar,
which is a key contributing factor to the process that leads to cavities and gum
disease, the amount of sugar and cream in you coffee can also contribute to the
proliferation of cavity-causing bacteria, and the tannins contained in coffee can work '
their way into tooth fissures and grooves, leaving your teeth .with a rough, stained
look. 50
If you absolutely can't avoid that morning doughnut, eat it quickly. The less time your teeth are 2
exposed to the sugar, the less time the bacteria have to create the acids that lead to decay. Of course, if 5t
you have to eat breakfast on the run, you might try switching from a coffee and doughnut to a piece
of fruit. Ideally, sit down to a nutritious breakfast of cereal and fruit and give yourself time to brush
and floss before you leave for work. Talk with your dentist about ways to make your morning routine
more tooth friendly.

Raid
From page Al
"So far, we have approxi-
mately 400 plants that
have been seized, 420
pounds of marijuana,
$57,000 in cash, 38 grams
of cocaine, four guns, nine
vehicles and one boat,"
said Garry Wilson, Chief
Deputy- of the St. Lucie
County Sheriff's Office.
Officials said that mort-
gage fraud charges were
being considered in many
of the arrests.
"Global Home Builders
seems to be the base of
operations," said Deputy
Chief Wilson.
"People associated with
Global Homes Builders
were the key targets in this


investigation and that's
why some of the search
warrants had to do with
documents and also Glob-
al Home's involvement in
the homes that were
searched. We believe there
is a connection between
Global Homes' employees
and these grow opera-
tions," he said..
Chief Skinner said in
addition to mortgage fraud
charges, officials are also
looking at the possibility
of child pornography and
other charges.
"We regard this as a sig-
nificant problem that's
occurring not only
throughout the Treasure
Coast, but throughout the
United States, and the fed-
eral, state and local
authorities are committed


to resolving this problem,"
'he said.
Bruce H. Colton; State
Attorney for the 19th Judi-
cial Circuit, was also pres-
ent for the news confer-
ence.
"We haven't determined
what all the charges will be
yet," said Mr. Colton.
"Obviously, the running
of the grow houses would
be one set of charges.
Mortgage fraud is another
set of charges, and traffick-
ing in marijuana would be
another. Depending on the
evidence gathered today,
there could be other
charges. I can't go into a lot
of detail, but it will come
out'soon," he said.

Man gives winnings to food bank


Jackpot of $800
will help feed
area's hungry

BY SAMANTHA JOSEPH
Sfil i' 1', 1
FORT PIERCE Forty-
nine-year-old appliance
salesman Charles Waldron
didn't want to play the games
or enter the raffle for an $800
prize.
The Home Depot employee
had reluctantly entered the
Big Easy Arcade on U.S. 1 for
the first time at his friend's
urging.
But when he did, he sur-
prised the crowd by winning
the jackpot, and then again by
giving it away.
"I was concerned because
all our regulars had been
coming in and trying really
hard to win that jackpot," said
Chuck Irvine, supervisor at
the Fort Pierce arcade.
The other customers, many
of whom had been participat-
ing in the game for weeks and
dropping hints about how
they'd use the prize, were ini-
tially grumpy, Mr. Irvine said.
But when they learned
what Mr. Waldron planned to
do with it, they had a change
of heart.
"I walked up to him to con-
gratulate him, and said to
him, 'Is this money already
spent?'" Mr. Irvine said. "He
looked at me and said, As a
matter of fact, it is.'"
The money, Mr. Waldron
told him, would go toward
feeding the hungry through a
donation, to the Treasure
Coast food bank.
"The mood in the place
instantly went from negative
to positive. He became a

hero in an instant," Mr.
Irvine said. "We went from
the atmosphere of an arcade
to the atmosphere of a
church in the twinkling of an
eye."
What made him do it?
Before he accompanied
his friend to the arcade that
evening, Mr. Waldron had
gone to dinner with friends.
At one point, the conversa-
tion turned to a notice they'd
received urging donations to
the food bank.
The non-profit had put out
word that it was running low
on supplies for the holidays,
he said.


Mr. Waldron mentioned
then that he would like to
help.
"My friend said he had it
all planned out if he won and
had already decided how
he'd used the money," he
said. "When I brought up
donating to the food bank,
he he'd probably give them
some."
Mr. Waldron usually
donates to charities during
the holidays, but could only,
afford modest contributions,
he said.
"Don't get me wrong. I
have a long list of things that
I can get for everybody, but


we can all just reach into our
wallets. There are a lot of
people,who can't go out and
get things, so I thought it
would be nice to help some-
body else," he said.
And it's one of the best gifts
he can give this holiday sea-
son.
"The food bank really
know how to stretch their
resources," he said. "I know
they'll make it go a long way."
As for Mr. Irvine, he's
pleased with how the draw-
ing worked out.
"It's just a beautiful story,
especially at this time of the
year," he said.

City woman struck and killed by car on U.S. I
A Port St. Lucie woman was hit by a car and killed
when she tried to cross U.S. 1 from east to west.
Heather Leann Dorian, 33, was attempting to cross
near the St. Lucie Square Shopping Center, an area cur-
rently under construction.
The Florida Highway Patrol reported that she crossed
over a concrete barrier about 1:50 a.m. on Sat., Nov. 24
and was struck by a car driven by Ashley L. Johns, 24, of
Fort Pierce, who as traveling north on U.S. 1. Ms. Johns
was not injured.

Arbor Day group honors city
For the third time, Port St. Lucie has been named a
Tree City USA community, the result of the city's com-
mitment to community forestry.
The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor
Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Asso-
ciation of State Forests and the USDA Forest Service.
In addition, the city received the foundation's Growth
Award for showing progress in its forestry program in the
areas of education and public relations, publications,
community-wide tree events and publicity.
Port St. Lucie was required to meet certain criteria in
order to be recognized as a Tree City USA community.
This included the existence of a tree board or depart-
ment; a tree care ordinance; a comprehensive communi-
ty forestry program; and an Arbor Day observance.

Life sentence upheld for Port St. Lucie man
The Fourth District Court of Appeals, in an opinion
issued on Nov. 21, has upheld the conviction and two
life sentences of Coleman Fred Sule of Port St. Lucie, in
the Aug. 19, 2003 murder of his former girlfriend,
Dorene Domato.
Mr. Sule was charged with the murder of Ms. Doma-
to and the solicitation of the murder of his neighbor.
An inmate at the St. Lucie County jail had testified
that Mr." Sule wanted to have the neighbor framed for
the murder, and then killed.
, Mr. Sule's appeal indicated that his son, Christopher
Sule, would have provided critical information related
to the case, including the fact that he, Christopher,
was at Ms. Domato's home the day she was murdered,
and therefore should have been allowed to testify at
Mr. Sule's trial.
However, Christopher Sule invoked his Fifth
Amendment right and refused to testify at his father's
trial, on the grounds that he might incriminate him-
self.

Juvenile detention workers


charged with sex crimes


Staff file of accused child molester shows no priors


By SAMANTHA JOSEPH

FORT PIERCE The father
of a 13-year-old girl who says
she was sexually abused by a
Port St. Lucie man, said he
"cried all week" when he
heard the news.
The man, who asked not to
be named to protect his
daughter's identity, said he
heard of the incident from
police.
An eyewitness had called
police after seeing his daugh-
ter and another young girl get
into a car with a man just
before dawn.
"One of the big issues for
me is that this was all
planned. This man picked
the girls up and had alcohol
ready," the father said. "My
daughter told me, 'Daddy I
was so out of it, I didn't know
what was going on..."
The teen has entered thera-
py but has said little about


the incident, her father said.
"We got some of our ques-
tions answered, but I'm sure
there will be thousands
more," he said.
Police have since arrested
David Joseph Flores, 21, 6450
N.W. Hacienda Lane.
Mr. Flores faces two felony
charges attempted lewd and
lascivious battery and
attempted lewd and lascivi-
ous molestation of a victim
between age 12 and 16 by an.
offender older than 18.
He was an employee of the
St. Lucie Regional Jutvenile
Detention Center.
The Department of Juve-
nile Justice is in the process
of terminating his employ-
ment, said spokesman Kevin
Cate.
But the girl's father is ques-
tioning whether his daughter
is alone in her claims against
Mr. Flores.
'"My opinion is this isn't the
first girl that he's done this to,
especially considering where

he works," the father said.
"Can you imagine how many
other girls who might be
afraid to say anything?"
But an examination of Mr.
Flores' personnel files by
Hometown News revealed no
prior complaints or accusa-
tions related to the center in
the months that he worked
there.
He worked as a juvenile
detention officer in Fort
Pierce until he was trans-
ferred, "due to agency
needs," to a similar position
in Fort Myers last July, his
employment record shows.
The accusations against
him involve incidents that
occurred outside of the cen-
ter and Mr. Flores' employ-
ment duties, Mr. Cate noted.
But an unrelated case also
involving sexual assault did
take place on the premises of
the detention center.
Fort Pierce police arrested
Leroy Masters, 50, 3235 S.E.
Quay St., Port St. Lucie, on
Nov. 16.
He faces a felony charge of
sexual assault using physical
force on a victim older than
12.
The accuser, a female
employee of the center, told
police that she had been talk-
ing to Mr. Masters at about 4
a.m.
Later, she went to the bath-
room, and as she was closing
the door, Mr. Masters barged
in.
"The victim said that the
suspect forced his way into
the bathroom and began to
force himself on her," the
arrest record stated.
The woman said she left
the restroom and headed to
the dining area. Mr. Masters,
she said, followed here there
and forced her to have inter-
course with him on a table.
"The victim stated that she
was trying to push him off,
but he was too heavy," the
arrest affidavit added.
During the attack, Mr. Mas-
ters squeezed her wrists and
hurt her, the woman
claimed.
He then grabbed her hair
and forced her to perform
oral sex on him.
But the woman "bit down
hard," which caused the
attacker to release her, she
told police.
Investigators obtained a
warrant to search for "possi-
ble injuries to the defendant's
private area" and for a DNA
swab.
Mr. Masters has denied
raping the woman, police
stated.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2007 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM


Got something to say?

Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at

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

In a stink over the stink
I read in the paper several days ago that the city of Port St.
Lucie City Manager Don Cooper is planning on charging every
resident $300-plus a year because the Sawgrass Lakes home-
owners are mad about the smell. They knew where they were
building. I've slept out there many times while visiting a friend.
He smells nothing. I smelled nothing. And many of their neigh-
bors smell nothing.
This is a special interest group they should not be catered to.
And the citizens should not be given another raise in their taxes
every year. The city council needs to re-think this. And think is
the operative word.
Do the city council and our illustrious city manager ever
think before they pass a resolution or a law? Use a bit of com-
mon sense. The city is getting completely ridiculous.
I hope everyone knows about this, but I doubt it because
they are too busy to read a paper because they are working two
jobs to pay the exorbitant taxes.
Wake up Port St. Lucie before it's too late.

A special thank you
Beautiful Waters Craft Club wants to thank everyone who is
responsible for helping with our bazaar at the St. Lucie Shop-
ping Center.
A special thank you to Charles Ray, who initiated us being
able to set up there, and to all the tenants for their acts of kind-
ness and their invitation for us to return.

Code enforcers should work on weekends
Well I guess St. Lucie is made the laughing stock of the world
again today. I read in the paper this morning that a man who
was selling trees and bushes out of his house for 29 years was
found guilty by the courts because he was doing something
illegal.
Where are the code enforcers on a Friday, Saturday or Sun-
day? I guess they don't work. If they drive down any street in
Port St. Lucie, Del Rio Boulevard, California Boulevard, or any
one of the side streets, they can find all these people that are
moving up from the south selling cars from their back yards,
blatantly and nobody tells them that this is wrong. I guess if
you're from the south, and are an "illegal," you don't have to
worry about breaking the laws in Port St. Lucie. What a town.
What a joke. What a disgrace.

Thank you to the Humane Society
This is a rave for the St. Lucie County Humane Society, espe-
cially Bunny Crawford, Paula O'Neil, veterinarian, Dana Juiller-
at, and all the volunteers and staff.
Last week, I was having some rough times and my dogs were
almost out of food. I called them and asked for a little bit of food
and lo and behold did they come out and supply my dogs with
a few weeks worth of food, dog beds, and came back out a few
days later to check on my dogs.
They went way beyond and helped me out to. They provided
immunizations free of charge. They didn't belittle me one bit.
My dogs are happier now and I'm happier now. They went
above and beyond especially at this time of year.
It's wonderful to know that people will help and not take your
pets away, but keep them where they belong. Thank you again
to the St. Lucie Humane Society.

Sticking up for teachers
To the author of the "Teacher's Pay," it does not matter what
you call them..
If it were not for a teacher you would not have a place for you
child to go during the day while you work. Of course, you
would never understand the amount of time and effort teach-
ers put into their profession. Yes it does cost money to get any
kind of education. You must have had a teacher who taught you
how to read and write and do math. I know I did and believe
you me it was rough, with sometimes as many as 35 children in
a class.
Thanks to people like you there are those who must think
that educators do nothing. Please volunteer in a public school
for a year and see what it is like before your next Rant & Rave. I
hope that you do not have children or grandchildren who want
and need an education.
Perhaps you are independently wealthy and did not need an
education to do whatever work you do or do not do. Before you
blast teachers and their salaries, think about how you came by
your education.
Remember, most teachers are happy doing their jobs. Going'
north has nothing ht all to do with anything; neither does what
an assistant principal does with her or his money for the people
they workwith. I suggest you get a life in the real world.
Educate your children about roadway behavior
This is meant for the parents or guardian of children.
You spend thousands of dollars every year to insure you car.
You spend hundreds of dollars a year for oil changes on your
car to protect your engine. You spend thousands on homeown-
er's insurance to protect your home.
Why don't you spend a little time and educate your children
about the proper way to walk ofi the sidewalk or in the street, if
need be, and be aware of what's going on around them?
Once again, I almost witnessed 'a tragedy in front of my
- home.
Don't keep blaming other people. Don't blame the police

p


department. Don't put the blame on it being too dark out.
Spend a little time to educate your children.
It wouldn't hurt.

Stop blaming the parents
In response to "Educate your children" and It's is the par-
ents' fault," I would like to remind you that our community is
responsible for all of our children.
I sacrificed my career to be home to walk my children to the
bus stop every day. I am fortunate that I can afford to do so.
There are many children whose parents have to work and can-
not watch over them all the time. So, I keep an eye on those chil-
dren too. It is not my job or responsibility, but I protect them as
if they were my own.
Instead of blaming the parent of a maimed child, maybe you
should consider the driver of the car that left the scene, insisting
he hit a mailbox! It amazes me that people don't think before
they speak, or type in this case. The man that lives in a glass
house should not cast the first stone! If it was their grandchild, I
am sure they would be on the other side of the fence.

The economy is getting worse
We have a national debt of over nine trillion dollars with a
trade deficit of over 5 trillion (goods we trade around world).
Only China sells us junk and buys very little in return. Instead,
they use our dollars to buy one corporation in the U.S. everyday.
How much longer can this go on with our dollar worth seventy-
five cents and falling?
With over 50 percent of our industry moved to foreign coun-
tries (the most recent being Hershey's Chocolate; laying off 10
thousand workers and moving to Mexico) I thank the Home-
town News for lItting us view our opinions and good news
shows like Lou Dobbs, Beck, & C Span on TV This once great
country must move back from third-world status.

Follow all traffic rules

To the author of "Obey the speed limit," You want to talk
about obeying the law? The law also says, "Keep right except to
pass."
The sign doesn't say, "Keep right except to pass, unless you're
already.doing the speed limit," so practice what you preach.
Just because the speed limit is 70 mph and a motorist is driv-
ing 70 rmph, it still'doesn't give them.the right to stay in the left
lane, yes, the passing lane, and then complain about people
coming too close to their rear bumper because they refuse to,
move over.
Whether there is a sign posted or not, if there's more than one
lane then the left lane is always the passing lane. There can be
no exception to this unless clearly posted by signs. Otherwise,
you are promoting chaos.
And make sure to use signals. '
You are not the police, neither are you deputized to enforce
traffic law each time you get behind the wheel.You are to keep
right except to pass at all times to facilitate traffic flow and for,
everyone's safety.
You do not have the right to impede the flow of traffic- you're
not allowed to play "block that car." It is attitudes and actions
like these that generate road rage in some people.
For your information, while you're holding up "speeders,"'
those cars that want to go faster are stacking up belhi nd you, I'mn
sure often enough, a bit too close together. This is a potentially
dangerous situation and you would be the one directly causing
it. I'm not condoning speeding at all, but neither do I condone
driving in a manner that exacerbates the problem and can
cause accidents itself.
If someone is exceeding the speed limit, that's their individual
decision to make and quite frankly, in any given situation, you
have no idea why this person is driving faster than 70 miles per
hour. It could be for any number of reasons where people
would say, "Well then I understand, just be careful."
And we all know that we can "safely" exceed the speed limit
by a few mph without threat of a speeding ticket, so I fear your
position is untenable
The bottom line is driving is about courtesy and being pre-
dictable. We know what you're supposed to do, the problem is
when people don't do it because they think they're some kind of
enforcer.

Stop. stealing cans

Who is the some one going around stealing cans out of the
recycle bins? They are or think they are clever. They take them at
night. They must be pretty hard up.


The news is depressing
It is depressing to read the stories in the newspapers and see
them onTV about abuse of children and animals. Just this week,
two stories were about a 25-year-old female with three small
children living in filth with many animals, including a pig, living
among filth and animal feces.
The taxpayers, in many cases remove children from these sit-
uations, unfortunately, in lieu of the taxpayer's expenses, some
of these children are given over to a grandparent, which is
arguable since the grandparents haven't interceded to help the
children previously. That doesn't make sense. As for the ani-
mals, the problem is being solved by some states, including Cal-
ifornia, which finally is working to pass a mandatory spay /
neuter law. This is the honest and reliable way to prevent much
animal abuse in Florida and in all our states.
A mandatory spay/neuter law will reach into the dark recess-
es rescuing animals from situation in which it is difficult to do
anything without this type of law.
The deliberate breeders, and backyard breeders, and snake
breeders who rely on kittens as food for their snakes, and all
those who don't show concern for animals will find the spotlight
on them with a mandatory spay law. Such a law is not a license
fee law.
A license fee law is very limited in its scope to prevent over-
breeding and animal abuse. Citizens in Florida should elect
their lawmakers based on their compassion for children and
animals. Don't you agree?

A response to PETA
This is in response to the rant about PETAis not a panifier.
First of all, many times I find out that people really don't know
about the organization, People for the EthicalTreatment of Ani-
mals, and it is the same with this letter writer, because this per-
son didn't even know what the acronym PETA meant. I really
encourage people to learn about this wonderful organization
that is on the front lines fighting worldwide animal abuse and
slaughter for profits. As for animal rescue, no, PETA's focus is not
on sheltering, animals because the last thing we need is another
animal rescue organization. We need to seek out the existing
ones and check out that they haven't turned into theocracies
that rely on more and more animals coming through their
doors. A system that makes money on animals that comes
through their doors isn't the one that we want to stop the flow.
One of PETA's missions is to stop the current need for animal
shelters. Follow the flow of money, and you'll see whom truly
profits.

What happened to remembering Kennedy?
I do not ishl1 to sound critical, butitis often said thatwe are
the country that never forgets. Nov. 22 is the anniversary of the
day that day President Kennedy was assassinated.
Our local newspapers should be reprimanded for not even
having a column about it. They are too busy telling you what
stores are open and about Hannah Montana.
And don't forget, all the stores are open at 4 a.m., wasting gas
that is too expensive and buying shirts that are made in Pak-
istan, India, El Salvador, and China. Most of the American flags
are made in the same places. The shirts with flags on the front
are made there. Keep up the good work America. Some day
you'll be working for them.
Rest in Peace John Kennedy. Some of us remember.

Garage sales
I want to say something to the people who have garage sales,
and put signs up to advertise them.
They should make their signs larger and have them more vis-
ible, with larger print.
Sometimes when you are going by in the car you can't read
them.
People would do more business and sell more things if the
signs had an arrow pointing to the house, and gave a little bit of
direction as to how to get there.
Also, make provisions for parking. Put your car, or your com-
pany car, down the street or somewhere to allow room for cus-
tomers.

Pit bull response
This is in response to the rant regarding pit bulls.
As information to your readers, Florida passed a state law that
forbids the legislation of any laws against a specific breed.

Rants & Raves
From pa e A6
This law was passed as a response to the Miami-Dade action.
There was recognition that pit bulls are not a specific breed,
except by one lesser known registry, but only a group of charac-
teristics that are displayed in many other breeds.
There are so many of these dogs that are loving members of
families throughout this country that you would be throwing
the proverbial "baby out with the bath water."
Pit bulls are used in search and rescue, and as drug dogs and
police dogs.
Who doesn't remember Petey from the Little Rascals? Yes, he
was a pit bull.
Even on6 of the dogs rescued from the Fort Pierce ring some
few months ago was being considered for a drug dog by a local
force.
There are laws that cover pet abuse and dog fighting that
already on the books.
Even the Humane Society of the United States that is trying to
legislate our pets out of existence, agrees that laws banning pit
bulls is not necessary.
Even if every pit bull on the face of the earth suddenly disap-
'peared, the scum that use them to fight would switch to a differ-
ent breed.
As far as dealing with issues of dangerous dogs, most of the
toy breeds are much more vicious and bite more frequently
than the larger breeds, just ask your veterinarian.
No, they don't have the ability to cause a fatal attack, but there
are certainly other breeds of dogs that can fall into this category.
Do we ban them all? If we start with this breed, where do we
stop?
There are thousands of lives lost in automobile accidents per
year. Do we ban automobiles?
It is the owner of the animal that is responsible, not the breed.
Don't we have enough laws that are meaningless without
adding more and destroying a lot of loved, family pets?

Who can I vote for?

Do any true Americans care about America?
We have people in Congress and the Senate and mayors of
our American cities wanting to give illegal criminals licenses.
We have poisonous products from communist China infect-
ing our children
We have E-coli spreading across America in our food supply.
Our American jobs are outsourced factories closing down.
Our borders wele never closed after "911," and who knows
how many terrorists have entered America.
Mr. Bush, our president, who I voted and for which I apolo-
gize for, looks the other way.
All he cares about is making the corporate crooks richer than
the people of Iran.
Our grandchildren will suffer in the future because of all this.
There is not one republican or democrat worth voting for.
I pray there is an independent person I can vote for.
God bless my America.

Old Bible stories have little to do
with homosexual reality today

Homosexuality now has very little to do with the Bible or its
stories of 2,000 to 4,000 years ago.
Prejudice and fear has put it in a position of being a scapegoat
of blame and hatred.
The word sodomy from the stories passed down by word of
mouth in ancient times became the word to describe sexual
behavior.
This story of Sodom and Gomorrah is from the book of Gene-
sis in the Old Testament.


Before it was written down in the 13th or 15th century B.C., it
was only in the oral tradition.
We do not know how much of it is true or untrue. Emerging
knowledge in the fields of psychology, sociology and medicine
does not justify holding to prejudices passed on in these stories.
John Shelby Spong, former Episcopal bishop of New Jersey
and well-known author, said these things in his best seller, "Sav-
ing the Bible from Fundamentalism:"
"Scientific data which the 5th and 6th Century B.C. authors of
the Torah and St. Paul could not have imagined throws new
light on the causes of homosexuality.
"... data available today suggest that homosexual orientation
is not a matter of choice but a matter of ontology.
"... this phenomenon has been present inhuman life since
the dawn of human history. It is present in higher mammals.
"... and there has been no appreciable success despite all the
efforts of modern science includifig psychiatry in changing this
reality for the vast majority of persons.
... The authors of the Bible did not have the knowledge on
this subject that is available to us today. The sexual attitudes in
scripture used to justify the prejudiced sexual stereotypes of the
past simply are not holding in this generation."
I, for one, live in the present. My life is my opportunity to be
the very best I can.4
If my child is ga.N. I do not stop loving him. If my brother and
sister are gay, they are still a part of my family and of me. I am
also in community with people of all kinds and colors, parts of
myworld.
Why should I discredit them? If I do, I discredit myself.
Morality determines integrity
One does not have political integrity without personal moral-
ity.

Safety belt law isn't fair

I'd like to express my opinion about the safety belt laws that
exempt one-ton trucks from Florida law.
In the Florida handbook it says that truck of a net weight of
5,000 pounds don't need to wear safety belts.
My truck has been 5,600 pounds, and I have been ticketed for
the past six years in Fort Pierce.
I go to court, and it ends up being thrown out.
The last one didn't get thrown out. A magistrate ended up fin-
ing me $150.
I don't think it is fair that if it is in the Florida handbook that
my truck is exempt from that law that I should even have a tick-
et for driving without a safety belt.
Yes, I understand that safety belts would protect me, but I do
think that I should have the right to either put it on, or leave it off
since that is the law.

Cruise dining not as stringent

I love the article in the Hometown News travel section about
cruising on the ocean.
One thing I think that should be added is that most cruise
lines these days have what they call free-style dining in all of the
restaurants where you just come and go as you please.
The days of assigned dining at the early 6 p.m. or the late 8:30
p.m. seatings are pretty much over.
I think the travel section should let people know that; and not
discourage those who want to eat whenever they please, rather
than at an assigned time.

Common sense solutions
can fix problems

Here are some thoughts I would like to throw out.
What if people who can purchase property do? There are
some great buys out there. What if people who really don't have
to sell, take their property off the market?


What if real estate agents (reduced) their commissions? What
if sellers put realistic prices on their properties?
What if taxes were fairly projected for all people? What if we
made it a little easier to do business in Florida?
What if the news media was not all gloom and doom?
I'm sure the common sense people out there can add a few
more thoughts to these. Maybe, just maybe, Florida will grow
again instead of people going to Georgia and North Carolina.
We have a beautiful state here. All states have problems, but
with some common sense, maybe we can make lemonade out
of our lemons.
Keep the faith.

President, vice president not to blame

(At) a recent press conference when the president of France,
Nicolas Sarkozy, was visiting the United States and was talking
to President Bush, a reporter asked President Bush if his tough
rhetoric toward Iran's nuclear escalation was causing a rise (in
the price of) crude oil.
President Bush answered that it had to do with supply and
demand. The world is consuming more than it can refine.
SHint, hint, Democrats. Do you get it?
Drill in Anwar (Province)? Build another refinery? It takes a lot
of time to build one.
I suppose the 'mainstream media outlets send out their
novice reporters just so they can have representation in the
crowd and then give them a stupid question to ask.
Now, Sen. (Dennis) Kucinich, a Democrat, wants to impeach
"Vice President (Dick) Cheney because he manipulated intelli-
gence to send us to war in Iraq.
If Sen. Kucinich is correct, then maybe we should go ahead
and impeach (Bill) Clinton for time after time putting our coun-
try at risk when the terrorists were hitting everywhere, including
the first bombing of the World Trade Center.

Best way to support troops
is to bring them home

I believe in helping the helpless, the Christian thing.
I believe in staying strong ourselves to be in a position to help
the helpless.
After Sept. 11, I supported the war. As I see it, we eliminated
the weapons of mass destruction (they were working on germ
warfare), took out the training camps for al-Qaida and even
took down Hussein.
Done! Now out!
War does not help the helpless. The helpless are raped,
slaughtered and (starved) in wars.
Who did we help in Vietnam? Big U.S. companies who get
military contracts.
Elected official do not have a right to hide personal finances.
When personal finances create conflict of interests, national
interests trumps personal finances even for the president and
vice president, both of whom profited from the war. The Sun-
shine Law gives the people the right to know who "owns" the
elected.
Our Constitution lists three contingencies for which our pres-
ident may be impeached: "Treason, accepting bribery, and
other high crimes against the state."
So how far off are personal interests? Just semantics?
We need to focus on national security, on quality of life here at
home, and where it was most needed in the world. That would
help the helpless. We have escalating poverty in this country.
The poor are getting more desperate and crime is increasing
alarmingly. Our commander in chief does not support our
troops. He sent our troops, lacking in proper protective equip-
ment, to their death.
That is an unforgivable disgrace; the unpardonable sin.
The best way to support the troops is to bring them home. We
need them home, alive, healthy and beautiful, where their tal-
ents can be used to help the helpless.

Secure savings securing your future


rom racing cars to

boomers are an
adventurous bunch when it

to investing and planning
for the future Bob and Betty
Boomer are much more
conservative.
In fact, in a 2006 poll by
the National Association of
Variable Annuities, more
than 30 percent of respon-
dents said they would not
put any money into stocks,
and 64-percent would not

their investments have to be

not put more than 30

stocks.
So how is a savvy but safe
investor supposed to ensure
an ample retirement
income?
It turns out that financing-
your retirement isn't so


, different from the way you
planned for special purchas-
es when you were a kid by
saving. Whether you saved
your allowance and ice

someone taught you early

safer under the protection of
your friendly, local banker.
From that point on you
probably had a dog-eared
navy blue passbook where
you recorded the money you
deposited from your paper

Now that you're older,

Far from being just the

your local bank is a veritable
treasure trove of investment
ideas that will help you use
your money wisely and

Ask your banker to help


you select the best invest-

on how much flexibility you
need, the interest rate you
want, and how long you
want to invest your money.
You're in the driver's seat
with your local bank, and
you still get all the benefits
of the guidance of trusted
banking professionals to
help you make informed

Whether you opt for a CI),

help you find the best rate to
help grow your money
without raising your heart

you're not penalized if you
need to gain access to that

An Opei Letter to Florida Car Dealers

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".


Fellow Florida Car Dealers, if you don't
Know me, I should tell you that I.don't profess
to be some "holier than thou" car dealer who
was always perfect for the past 38 years.
When I look at some of my past advertising
and sales tactics, I am not always proud.
But I have evolved as my customers have
evolved. My customers',expectations, level
of education and sophistication are much
higher 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 "A'ly cu
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your expect at
customers.


Virtually every car dealer
in Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a
'dealer fee.'doc leedealer
prep fee ranging from $500
to nearly .;1 000 This e>tra
charge is programmed inio


your cormpuler It has been made illegal in
manr, sales including Cahltrrnia but is still
legal in Florida. Tire reason v,'u charge this
lee is simple to increase the pri:e of the car
and your protil in such a manner Ihat ti is not
noliced by your customers This is lust plain
wrong I used to change a dealer lee 15495,1
and when I slopped charging it a tfe years
ago .1 was .:'ary But I did .1 because I could
no longer, in good conscience mislead my
cu:l':m'ers Just because everybody else
wA5' ,.in'q lirihe sanme ihing did nc.t make il
, ,rreci


S
io


Now, here is the good news. After eliminat-
ing the dealer fee my profit per car did drop
by about the amount of the dealer fee, but
my customers realized I was now giving 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,
toniers' able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
ons, level or used car. You can do the
same.


Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
I think of myself as the new
'sheriff that has come 10o
'clean up South Florida'. In
fact I am well aware that this
leoter is to some xltenl self-


serving Many people will read this letter and
learn why they should buy a car Irom me,
and not you And I am also aware that most
dealers whuo ead this will either get angry and
ignore it or not have the courage to Iollow my
lead But maybe you will be the exceplion If
vou have any interest in following my lead.
call me anylime I don I have a secretary and
I don i screen any of my phone calls I would
loe to chat with you about this
Sincerely
Earl Stewnar Earl i'iril 7i,irai

Robotics
From page Al
Since only the top three
teams would get to go to
the state championship,
the competition was fierce.
The teams are judged on
their robotic skills, energy
and conservation knowl-
edge and teamwork.
When the dust finally
settled, a group of home-
schooled students from
both Martin and St. Lucie
counties, The S.T.A.R. Bots,
won second place, while
the Robo-Monkeys from
the School of Robotic Fun
in Boynton Beach won the
top honors and the Robo
Cops of Wellington earned
third place.
The Robo Cops' coach,
Joe Pipitone, said this was
the first time in five years
his team had won the local
competition, although
they'd won the state 'cham-
pionship in 2006.
"The competition is very
strong," he said. "We
haven't had a back-to-back
Swin in Florida in a while."
The members of Robo-
Monkeys took note of what
worked for other teams at
South Fork, he said, and
plan to use that knowledge
in Melbourne next year.
For their energy audit,
the team consisting of
his 'two sons, Vincent, 9,
Anthony, 13, and two other
boys chose the YMCA of
Boynton, Beach. They rec-
ommended that the build-
ing install solar roof panels,
solar thermal panels to
heat the swimming pool
and skylights in the gymna-
sium to provide natural
lighting.
Mr. Pipitone emphasized
that the knowledge gained
during the competition
was much more valuable
than the first-prize trophy.
"It's all about the kids
learning something and
having fun at the same
time," he said.
The coach of the S.T.A.R.
Bots, Palm City resident
Stacey Jones, has beeh
involved with FLL for six
years. She said she's still
amazed that the team
made it to the top three.
"I was kind of shocked
because the competition is
very complicated, and the
judging is very, very tough,"
she said.
Her son Austin, 9, was a
rookie on the team this
year. After extensive
research and even inter-
viewing a man who works
in the solar energy indus-
try, he said he's become an
expert on solar panels.
Even so, he added, the
pressure was intense when
all eyes were on the team.
"You know that there's
going to be lot of people
watching you, and we did
three rounds," he said. "We
were about to fall over
when we found out we
were going to state."
The S.T.A.R. Bots also
audited a YMCA building,
this one in Stuart, offering
alternative energy solu-
ti6ns to the management.
A group of home-
schooled students. from
Wellington, the Robo Cops
auditing the energy usage
of the Wellington Commu-
nity Center for the research
portion of their project.
Prior to the audit, they vis-
ited a power plant that uses
bagasse a byproduct of
sugarcane processing to .
create biomass energy. The
students then implement-
ed that concept into the
energy plan for the center.
Their coach, Linda Per-
venecki, said the team -
now in their third year of
competitions deter-
mined early on to make it
to Melbourne.
S"One of our boys set it as
a goal to go to state," she
said. "We had put a lot
more time and effort into
our project this year."
Ms. Pervenecki noted
that team spirit seemed to
permeate this year's event.
"Everybody was kind of


pulling together, and it
seemed to create a lot more
interaction between the
teams," she explained. "By
the end of the day, we felt
kind of a kinship with the
other teams."
This year's tournament
director, Mendi Carpenter,
emphasized the impor-
tance of the fun-filled envi-
ronment as a learning tool
.for the youngsters.
"It's very satisfying to see
them so involved," she
said. "I think it's really
important to provide a
place for kids to learn
about science and technol-


ogy in a fun way."
The other seven teams
and their awards include
the BOTSQUAD of Jensen
Beach (team interaction,
dependable design); T.I.G.
Blots, a group of home
schooled students from St.
Lucie and Martin counties
(creative presentation and
a trophy for robot perform-
ance); The Murray, Lions
from Murray Middle
School in Stuart (judges'
award); Mindstangs, from
the Unity School in
Hypoluxo (innovative
design, rising star); Panda 1
and Panda 2, both from
Poinciana Elementary; in
Boynton Beach; and the
Element Masters of the

Rockledge.

Bridge
From page Al
To date, the permits
required for the bridge have
not yet been secured.
"Today is the start of some-
thing that we've needed for a
long time," said former Mayor
Robert Minsky.
"It's a shame we can't get the
powers that be to get the
bridge over the river built,
although I think eventually it
will happen," he said.
The Nov. 20 event was also a
groundbreaking for segments
four (Cashmere Boulevard to
1-95) and five (the interchange
at 1-95) of the project.
"This confirms that the city
will make this roadway a reali-
ty," said Mayor Patricia Chris-
tensen, who has formed a task


force to lobby state and feder-
al officials for. the permits
needed to build the bridge
over the St. Lucie River.
The city's favored route
would link West Virginia
Avenue to Village Green Drive,
a concern to some environ-
mental groups because it
involves wetlands and state
conservation land. that exists
along the river.
The city prefers this route,
however, because alternate
routes would disrupt residen-
tial homes and businesses.
Mayor Christensen has
asked for the public's help in
contacting federal and state
officials about the need to
grant the required permits for
this section of the project, in
the hope that this will spur
officials to act more quickly.
According to her assistant,


Port St. Lucie councilman
Chris Cooper drives Mayor
Patricia Christensen and
Vice Mayor Jack Kelly
through the ribbon
stretched across the
Crosstown Parkway bridge
over Florida's Turnpike to
commemorate it's official
opening Tuesday, Nov. 20.
The opening connects
Bayshore Boulevard to
Cashmere Boulevard.

the Mayor's task force is in the
process of compiling a list of
all officials to whom such cor-
respondence .can be
addressed, and that informa-
tion will appear shortly on the
city's Web site atwww.cityofp-
sl.com.
There was no mistaking
the reality of the completed
Crosstown Parkway bridge
on Nov. 20, however, as
emergency vehicles from
the St. Lucie County Fire
District and Sheriff's Office,
the Port St. Lucie Police
Department and Volunteer
Ambulance Service and the
Florida Highway Patrol
made the first official trip
over the bridge with sirens
blaring and lights blazing,
breaking the ribbon at the
top of the bridge as they
passed.

TRAVEL



Falling in love with Kenya's Mount Kilimanjaro


rT|his summer I climbed
Mount Kilimanjaro, but
I had fallen in love with
it a long time ago.
It happened on my first trip
to Kenya, in Amboseli
National Park, at the base of
the mountain.
I'd just finished leading a
trip to Egypt. Some people
decided to extend their stay
and travel with me to Kenya
on safari.
Having arrived in Nairobi
after a short flight from Cairo,
our group headed first to
Tsavo National Park. It was
about a three-hour drive over
moderately bumpy roads. I
remember people complain-
ing and thinking to myself,
"You haven't seen anything
yet."
Kenya's terrible roads are
legendary, although the
present government is trying
to improve them.
We soon arrived at our
comfortable lodge, Kilaguni.
After lunch and a rest, we
gathered for a late afternoon
game drive during which we
saw zebras, giraffes, gazelles,
baboons and more.
Next, we drove to a lake
filled with hippos. We
watched them swim from an
underwater observatory.
Eventually, we headed back
to the lodge for dinner. As we
congregated on the porch, we
kept our eyes on Kilaguni's


famous watering hole. At
sunset, our guide, Gregory,
spotted a leopard.drinking.
We watched it for the longest
time, until we could only see
its eyes glowing in the dark.
The next day, we headed to
Amboseli over back roads that
few ever get to see. It was
beautiful. As we turned one
corner, we got our first
glimpse of the mountain in
the distance. At 19,340 feet
and Africa's highest peak,
Mount Kilimanjaro was
breathtaking. To make things
better, a lioness and her cubs
crossed the road in front of us.
We got some. great photos.
Soon we arrived at
Amboseli Serena Lodge, our
home for the next two nights.
This lodge is built in a wet,
wooded oasis, which is
refreshing, because most of
Amboseli is so dry. The lodge
has a colorful African bush
feel to it. The rooms are lovely,
decorated with bold fabrics
and beadwork from the local
Maasai tribe.
Everything is designed
creatively. The bar was
adorned with Maasai beaded
collars and the dining room -
arranged around a dried tree
with hanging bird's nests.
Also, there's an inviting pool
and a meeting place for
Maasai presentations, which
were offered every afternoon.
After lunch, we set out on a


late afternoon game drive.
There was so much to see and
always within sight of Mount
Kilimanjaro.
We saw countless ele-
phants, giraffes and zebra,
plus hippos, water buffalo,
wildebeest, impala, gazelle,
wart hogs and more.'
As the sunset turned the sky
pink and orange, we saw
families of elephants walking
home in a single line, framed
by the mountain. There were
many fabulous photo
opportunities, but my favorite
was of aJone hippo walking'
toward the mountain at day's
end.


As we headed back to the
lodge for our last night in
Amboseli, we passed a tree
that was literally alive and
singing. We stopped to listen
to the sunset song of hun-
dreds of birds in it, watching
Mount Kilimanjaro's colors:
change from lavender to royal
blue to navy as night fell.
Looking back, I'm sure it was
that magical moment at
sunset when I truly fell in love
with Mount Kilimanjaro.

Shere do your eyes
go when a win-
V dow opens on
' it PC?
i ask this question
because of a phenomenon
that I've noticed while
instructing new computer
users.
Usually, the answer is, "I
don't have that," a short
pause and then the
inevitable, "Oh! Here it is!"
Why is it that many new
computer users are unable
to find things that are
present on any given
system, even when the
items in question are right
there on the screen?
The answer lies in where
people's eyes tend to go
when a window opens.
Most of the time, the
user's eyes are hovering
around a 4-inch circle in
the center of the screen. If
they don't see what they
are looking for there, the
response is usually "I don't
have that."
Then, after realizing that
maybe they should have
whatever it is they can't
find, they will broaden the
search a bit, move their
eyes around and locate
what they were missing.
If you are having trouble
finding things on your
desktop, pay attention to
where your eyes go when a
window pops open. If you
tend to focus on a small
area in the center of the
window, try shifting your
view to the top left of the
screen and work your way
to the lower right through
the center of the window.
This will usually allow
you to see what's what in
any given window in the
order of importance.
By the time you get to

the window, you will
typically have enough
information to complete
whatever it is you are
trying to do.
Have I lost you? Let's
look at it another way.
When someone hands
you a piece of paper or
you open a page in a book,
where do your eyes go?
Well, they certainly don't
hover around the center of
the page (or at least they
shouldn't).
In Western civilization,,
we begin reading from the
top left and work our way
to the lower right. If we
were to just focus on the
center of the page, we
would end up just reading
a small chunk of what's
written and miss the
beginning and the end.
Without thinking, we
know to start at the top left
of the page and, working
from left to right, line by
line, moving our way down
the page.
We need to develop the
same habit when we use
the computer because the
same rules apply.
Starting in the middle of
the screen and then
wandering around will
leave us feeling lost and
out of control, and we will
most certainly miss things.
When we look at the top
left corner, we will usually
see an icon representing
whatever program is
running followed by the
title bar. These are good
things to know: the name

The next line we will
usually encounter is a line
of pull-down menus.
That's Where we can find!
all the commands that are
available within that
particular window
grouped again in logical
sections.
All of the filing-related
commands are grouped
under file, all the editing
commands are grouped
under "edit" and so on,
with the final pull-down
menu usually being
"help."
They arranged in this
way, so that if people don't
find what they are looking
for by going through each
menu from' left to right,
they can look in the help
menu as a last resort.
Beneath the pull-down
menus your window may
or may not have a row of
buttons. Many programs
use this space to make
some of the commonly
used functions available in
the form of buttons.
For instance, Microsft
Word uses this space to
give you buttons for
formatting text, opening
files, copy, cut and paste
functions and more.
Internet Explorei uses
this area for the back,
forward and home but-
tons. Hold your mouse
over it until a little
description appears. After
the toolbars some
programs have many -
the body of whatever
document or file is usually
next.
However, all programs
are different; you won't see
all of the items listed
above in every window.
The point is to start from
the top left. That way you
can usually find whatever
it is you are looking for.

Geri McPherson, vice president of Florida Atlantic University's Treasure Coast campus,
makes Eric Alexander a member of the FAU team with the presentation of the college
warm-up jacket after Mr. Alexander donated $200,000 to be used for scholarships in the
engineering and computer science field.

From page Al
Known as "The Eric
Alexander Engineering
and Computer Science
Endowed Scholarship
Fund," it will provide
annual scholarships to
students of engineering
and computer science.
Mr. Alexander has stipu-
lated that the scholarships
be awarded only to those
students at the Treasure
Coast campus.
Mr. Alexander was born
in Austria. He came to the
United States and grew up
in New York City.
His dream was to be an
engineer, but after two
years at Princeton Univer-
sity he was forced to leave
because of the Depres-
sion's effect on his
finances.
"Mr. Alexander wants to
make sure no other stu-
dent has to leave college
because of that," said Karl
K. Stevens; dean of FAU's
College of Engineering and
Computer Science.
Mr. Alexander eventually
found a career, in engi-
neering that included
work at Fordham Universi-
ty as a campus engineer
and later as a mechanical
engineer at Gramercy Park
Hotel in New York City.
Mr. Alexander was mar-
ried to his wife, Ruth, now
deceased, for 61 years.
They raised two children.
An active man in good
health who still drives, Mr.
Alexander, does not con-


sider himself a man of
great resources, but he
wanted to provide the gift
to emphasize his love of
learning and his value of a
college degree.
The idea for the endow-
ment came after his good
friend, Patricia I. Stum-
baugh, suggested he con-
tact the Treasure Coast
campus of FAU.
A humble man who
seemed embarrassed by
the attention at the FAU
ceremony, he simply said,
"I'ni happy about the
whole set up."
Others, however, were
happy to speak of his gen-
erosity.
"In fundraising, you
meet a lot of interesting
people," said Jack B. Aylor,
director of development
for FAU's Treasure Coast
campus.
"Eric is no exception. He
wants to leave the world a
better place than when he
came in. His gift will have
a tremendous impact in a
program that is just start-
ing to take off," said Mr.
Aylor.
Ms. McPherson agreed.
In a statement released
prior to FAU's ceremony,
she said, "His personal gift,
combined with the support
from the state's matching
program, will leave a last-
ing legacy on campus for
future generations."

learning more about the
scholarship fund may con-
tact Jack A. Aylor at (772)

Nebuchadnezzar's dream


King Nebuchadnezzar
II was the most
important king of
the new, or Neo-Babylon
Empire.
He had a vast and
elegant palace built
around five courtyards.
However, he is best
known for his "hanging
gardens," one of the seven
wonders of the ancient
world.
Nebuchadnezzar built
this amazing wonder to
cheer up his homesick
wife, Amyitis. She was the,
daughter of the king of the
Medes.
The hanging gardens did
not hang in the sense of
being suspended from
cables or ropes. The
original Greek word,
"kremastos" actually
translates to "overhang-
ing."
The gardens consisted of
vaulted, meaning "cov-
ered" terraces, overhang-
ing, or raised, one above
the other, resting upon
cube-shaped pillars.
Babylon rarely received


rain, so slaves continuous-
ly worked to raise water
from the Euphrates River
into the garden. The
Euphrates flowed through
the center of the city.
They raised the water by
using a chain pump, which
consisted of two large
wheels, one above the
other, connected by a
chain.
The wheel below was
attached to a shaft and a
handle. As they turned the
handle, buckets dipped
into a stream of water,
channeled in from the
Euphrates and picked up
the water.
The chain then lifted the
bucketsto the upper level
of the garden, where they
were tipped, and,the water
was released into a large
pool. The water in the pool
was routed into channels
to water the gardens on
every level.
According to historians,
the gardens were as high
as the outer city walls,
which were 320 feet high.
The gardens were also

DAVID GOODE
Religion columnist

reportedly 400 feet wide
and 400 feet long.
This "mountain" of
beautiful flowers and lush,
green foliage rising off the
plain, was more 'than
amazing.
King Nebuchadnezzar,
creator of the hanging
gardens, had a dream.
He asked his wise men
to explain the details of his
dream and to interpret it.
Then he added this, if you
don't I will have you torn
apart and I will turn your
houses into heaps of
rubble.
His wise men replied,
"This is impossible!"
The furious king sent
out the command to
execute all of the wise men
of Babylon, including
Daniel.
Daniel went to the king
and said, "Give me some
time and I will interpret
your dream." That night
God explained the dream
to Daniel in a vision.
Daniel kept the king
waiting to hear the mean-
ing of his dream until he
had given praise to God.
Daniel said to the king,
"There is a God in Heaven
who reveals secrets."
After Daniel gave the
king the interpretation,
the king was very
impressed and gave him
many gifts and made him
ruler of Babylon.
Then the king said to
Daniel, "Truly I know, your
God is the greatest of all
Gods and the Lord of all
kings."
Read Daniel chapter two
for more details regarding
the dream and the inter-
pretation, it's quite inter-
esting.
What was going on
elsewhere in the ancient


world at this time?
Making connections is
fascinating.
Daniel's vision came in
602 BC, 132 years before
the birth of the Socrates.
Socrates was born
around 470 BC and was a
classical Greek philoso-
pher. He was born during
the Classical period,
designating the style of
paintings and sculpture
developed in Greece.
In 650 BC, 48 years
before Daniel's vision, the
Greeks started making clay
objects using molds.
Daniel's vision came
only 27 years before the
Greeks used handsaws for
cutting wood, in 575 BC.
The ancient Olympics
started in 776 BC and
continued until AD 393.
Daniel's vision came
during this time frame.
The Olympics games
lasted for five days, and
only males were allowed to
compete. One interesting
event was the footrace in
which competitors were
required to wear full body
armor.
Winners of Olympic
competitions received a
crown of wild olive leaves
and other prizes. These
prizes included front row
seats at festivals, and the
erection of a statue
honoring the winners at
Olympia.
When you put God first
in your life, He will launch
you into greatness, just as
he did Daniel.

Be thankful for seven magical gifts of spirit


T thanksgiving is the .
beginning of the
holiday season.
It is a time of harvest,
sharing the fruits of our
labors for the year. Some-
how, it opens the door wider
in our hearts and makes us
want to give even more of
our happiness and help
bring hope to those we love
and are maybe less fortu-
nate than ourselves.
On the earthly side of life,
we have all the physical and
mental things to deal with
every day of the year, not
just at the holidays. Many of
the earthly pleasures are
fleeting. When our focus is
on the earthly side, however,
there is never enough. We
are always hungry wanting
more food, love, money,
possessions, power or
prestige.
This is coming from lack.
Even in the best of souls, it'
sometimes manifests the
.mental or emotional results
of the lack, in the form of
fear, sadness, guilt, greed,
jealousy, resentment or
martyrdom.
"Poor me. I give to
everyone else, but alas, no
one ever gives to me."
Have you ever been there?
There is a far and finer way
to live, if we can ever get our
own heads and egos out of
the way and surrender to the
heart and higher power and
let it work for us and
through us.
Here is how it works.
Everything that is created
in physical form starts as an
idea in someone's mind.
The three most prominent
sources of ideas are first to
originate in spirit and come
to us as an "a-ha" or light
from within our heart and
spirit. Or the idea comes
from our own conscious
mind or as an inspiration
from the mind of another
person whom we have
talked to or read about.
These are our seeds
source of greatest truth. Do
you want to be inspired?
Hang out with positive-
hearted people who share
their dreams. Stay away
from negative-minded
people who discourage you.
It all comes down to the
choices we make as we
travel the road of life.
The point is that every-
thing starts in spirit and
then, in time, becomes a
physical reality. It all starts
with creating and planting

bility to go in, find it, bring it
out and set it free.
This leads then to the
seventh gift of spirit:
happiness and joy. A healthy
soul is a happy soul.
How happy are you? If
something is missing, take a
look at the other six gifts of
spirit and go to work to
increase them. You can do it.
You were born to do it. Make
it your gift to yourself this
holiday season.
Don't let another year go
by. It's your life. The sweetest
news is the best is yet to
come.

When looking for a
great holiday gift,
why not give a
living gift of color?
On& plant you should
consider is the colorful
gem known as the orchid.
Orchids are truly amaz-
ing plants. Many people
think they are difficult to
grow, but actually the
opposite is true. Orchids
are no more difficult to
grow than many flowering
annuals. Orchids simply
need the basic plant
essentials: light, water,
fertilizer and air.
The flowering cycle of
the orchid will vary from
variety to variety, but in
general, they will bloom
from one to four weeks.


JOE ZELENAK
Garden Nook

Under ideal conditions, up
to six weeks is not out of
the question.
Orchids are unique
plants because that they
do not grow in soil. In fact,
if you try to plant an
orchid in soil, it will mean
most certain death.
Orchids need to be plant-
ed in special bark mixes.
If you place your orchids
outside under a tree, they
do not need any planting
medium at all. The plants.
will attach themselves to
the tree and obtain all of
their nutrients from
natural rainwater and air.
This is how orchids grow
in the wild. If you want to
grow a prize orchid, this is
the way to go. '
For many people,
growing orchids outside is
out of the question, but
you can still grow orchids
inside or on a porch with
excellent results.
If you choose to raise
your plants inside, find a
bright windowsill or an
area that is as close to a
natural light source as
possible.
Usually when you
purchase a plant, it will
already be in a container
with the appropriate
planting medium. Howev-
er, you may want to
transplant your flower in a
more decorative pot or it
just might need to be put
into a larger container.
In this case, you can use
either an appropriate bark
mix or decorative stones.

Either of these materials
will allow the roots to stay
aerated enough so they
will be able to breathe.
The roots will also need
good drainage. One of an
orchid's worst enemies is
too much water. Water the
plants completely about
once a week or so. Always
allow them to dry before
watering again. Do not
over water.
Once your orchid has
bloomed out, the next step
is to get them to re-bloom
at a later time. In order for
orchids to bloom again,
they need a 10-degree
temperature difference
between the day and night
temperature. You can
either do this by setting
your air conditioning
system accordingly or
placing the plant on a
porch where the tempera-
ture difference will hap-
pen naturally. This trick
can mean the difference
between a plant that has
green leaves or a plant
that will treat you to a
rainbow of color.
Orchids are not heavy
feeders, but when you do
feed them, they will
require a special food.
Find a mix that is specially
made for your plants. A
fertilizer with the numbers
20-10-20 will do an
excellent job. Feed plants
once a week with a weak
solution of the fertilizer.
Orchids need an ample
amount of humidity in order
to thrive. If the humidity is
below 50 percent in your
home, the plants will not do
well. You can alleviate this
problem by running a
humidifier near the plant
during the normally dry
winter months.

Not getting enough


sunlight may lead


to disorder

Many of us who came
from the North are
familiar with the
winter blues, when the days
get short and gray, the trees
grow bare and everything
seems damp and cold.
For many of us, escaping
the depression that came
with the winter weather was
a major reason for coming
to Florida to live and why
snowbirds continue to
come here each winter for
our best season.
While the winter blues
may not be as severe in the
South, it is still a reality for
many people. Even in
Florida, the days grow
shorter and there are far
fewer hours of sunlight each
day. It can be sunny at 3
p.m. and dark by 4:30 p.m.
Those of us in Florida who
are susceptible to the winter
blues or Seasonal Affective
Disorder, as it is medically
known, need to be alert,
understand the symptoms,
and take action to ease the
distress of the condition.
The first thing you need to
know is that SAD is a
recognized form of depres-
sion that has been linked to
a biochemical imbalance in
the brain. The imbalance is
brought on by shorter days
and lack of sunlight. It is
real.
Some of the symptoms of
SAD include excessive
sleeping; increased appetite
and weight gain (people
often turn to comfort food
and crave starches and
sugars); irritability, difficul-
ties with other people,
especially feelings of
rejection; and a heavy,
leaden feeling on the arms
and legs.
The American Psychiatric
Association (www.healthy-
minds.org) suggests a
variety of treatments that
are effective in managing or
staving off SAD.
The first thing to try is
increasing exposure to
sunlight. If possible, take a
walk or arrange an office or
room so that you are
exposed to a window. If you
work in a cubicle, try to get
out on your lunch hour. A
walk also decreases stress
and exercise has been
found to help with the
symptoms of SAD.
If your symptoms don't go
away or affect your daily
life, then it's time to seek
help. A professional, trained
in the treatment of depres-
sion, may recommend
several treatments includ-
ing some traditional
measures such as talk
therapy and anti-depres-
sants.
However, he or she may
also recommend light
therapy, which has been
very effective in treating
SAD. This involves exposure
to a bright light from a
special fluorescent light box
for between 30 to 90
minutes a day during the
winter. Many people notice
improvement within a few
days, while other may take a
few weeks to see improve-
ment. If there is none at all,
other treatments may be
necessary.

with your physician,
because people with certain
eye conditions and sensitiv-
ity to light may not be good
candidates for the treat-
ment.
In addition, someone
should monitor your
progress, to see how you are
feeling and if the treatment
is appropriate for you.
Light therapy devices
range from metal boxes to
portable lamps. They
contain white fluorescent


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well


light bulbs behind a dif-
fuser, so that the light is at a
downward angle, allowing
more to enter the eyes. The
diffuser spreads the light
evenly and absorbs and
filters dangerous ultraviolet
rays. It is extremely impor-
tant to purchase a light box
from a reputable company
that can provide independ-
ent verification that the
devices they sell are free of
ultraviolet rays that can
damage the eyes and skin.
If this disorder is a
problem for you, it's a good
idea to think about a
solution before the days
grow shorter and depres-
sion sets in. That's when it
seems hard to do anything,
including seeking treat-
ment.
You can call 211 and ask
for organizations that
provide mental health
counseling, many on sliding
scales.

Lawnwood Regional Medical
Center in Fort Pierce offers
24 hour, seven-days-a-week

Bike
From page Al
Department on Sunday,
Dec. 9 from 10 a.m. to 2
p.m. in the parking lot of
Superplay USA in St. Lucie
West.
A cooperative effort of
community police offi-
cers, school resource offi-
cers and local businesses,
Bike Rodeo is a children's
bicycle safety event that
will give away, a bike hel-
met to any child attending
who is 16-years-old or
younger.
In addition, a limited
number of free bicycles
will be given to children
who were previously iden-
tified as having a financial
need.
"We have about 100


bikes in brand new or
good condition," said Sgt.
Grohowski.
"They are the result of
evidence that must be dis-
posed of.if the owner can-
not be located. Rather
than dispose of them,
however, we wanted to
identify needy kids and get
rid of the bikes that way,"
he said.
The organizers of Bike
Rodeo are soliciting local
businesses to donate bicy-
cle helmets for the event.
"No matter what the
economic needs of the
child, we want every child
to walk out with a hel-
met," said Sgt. Grohowski,
citing national statistics
indicating 275,000 chil-
dren were treated for head
injuries as the result of
bicycle accidents in 2005,


the last year such data was
available.
"An average of 140 kids
were killed on bikes in
2005, the majority of
which were the result of
traumatic head injuries
that could have been pre-
vented if helmets were
worn," he said.
Sgt., Grohowski also
noted that the. law
requires any child 16-
years-old or younger to
wear a helmet when riding
a bike.
"Otherwise, we can cite
the parent," he said.
Bike Rodeo will also
allow children the oppor-
tunity to have their bike's
serial number registered
with the police depart-
ment, to identify a bike
that is lost or stolen and is
later recovered.


. The police department
will also be conducting
safety checks on bicycles
by examining tires and
chains.
The Bike Rodeo event
will also include a raffle for
several brand-new bicy-
cles donated by local busi-
nesses. Participants do riot
need to show financial
need to enter this raffle for
the free bikes.
Bike Rodeo will be held
on Sunday, Dec. 9, from 10
a.m. to 2 p.m. at Superplay
USA,. 1600 Courtyard Cir-
cle in St. Lucie West, rain or
shine.
For more information on
Bike Rodeo, or to donate a
helmet or bicycle for the
event, contact Sgt. Paul
Grohowski at (772) 879-
3301 or by e-mail.at pgro-

'Peter Pan' is high-flying family fun


Brooke Stone knows that
she has big shoes to fill.
As Peter Pan, she follows
in the footsteps of Mary
Martin, Sandy Duncan
and Cathy Rigby in a role
traditionally played by a
woman.
She and the cast of
"Peter Pan: The High Fly-
ing Musical," comes to the
Sunrise Theatre on Dec. 6
and she spoke by phone
recently about the tradi-
tion she continues.
"I am honored to play
the part," she said. "I saw
Cathy Rigby in "Peter Pan"
when I was 11 and I always
wanted to play it. It looked
like it was out of my reach
and then my agent sent
me on the audition. It was
a really good match. As I
prepared, I did a lot of
research on the life of
(writer) J.M. Barrie. I have
to keep in mind I play a lit-
tle boy. I stay focused on
who rather than what he
was, focused on the mis-
chief and the fun. He tried
to push the line, to see how
far he could go."
The 23-year-old per-
former says the role allows
her a lot of freedom.
"It allows me to have
fun," she says. "It's silly and
funny. I can do whatever I
want and not grow up. It's
made easier by having a
wonderfully talented cast,
and I created my character
in relation to them."
Members of the audi-
ence have the opportunity
to let go of their inhibi-
tions, as well, in ~prt of the,
show in which the audi-


ence is asked to partici-
pate.
Ms. Stone teaches them
to crow and asks for their
help as she struggles to
believe.
"It's a family show," she
said. "There's something
for everyone. The kids love
the silliness and the fun.
There are adults getting
into trouble and the audi-
ence goes along for the
.ride. The message is that
it's okay to never grow up.
Everyone should grow up
in their own time. You
should allow yourself the
freedom to have fun. When
my dad, who sits at a desk
all day, saw the show, he
thought it was so much
fun to let himself go. He
said he was crowing with
everyone else and that he
got tricked into being
free."
There are many versions
of "Peter Pan," including
the Disney movie, and Ms.
Stone wants people to
know that this production
is a mixture of the new and
the traditional.
"There's a lot of music
and dance," she said.
"There are some different
numbers and some tradi-
tional. It's very recogniza-
ble and a little, different,
too."
The actress ddes,
indeed, fly, and she says
that it's been a learning
process they're still work-
ing out.
"We're still trying to get
more excitement and
tricks in," she said. "It

takes time to get used to
the sensation. I was excit-
ed and couldn't wait. I'm a
jump-right-in kind of per-
son. We're in such good
hands and the safety pre-
cautions are great. It's
been a blast."
" Peter Pan: The High


Flying Musical" comes to
the Sunrise Theatre, 117 S.
Second Street, Fort Pierce
on December 6 for a 7 p.m.
show. Tickets are $49 and
$39; call the box office at
(772) 461-4775 or order

Marvin Hamlisch: A legend brings


his songs and stories to the Lyric


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL Composer Richard Rodgers is
Entertainment writer one of only two people to win
Emmy, Oscar, Tony and Gram-
my Awards as well as a Pulitzer Prize.
The other is composer Marvin Hamlisch.
The distinguished musician brings his songs and stories
to the Lyric Theatre on Dec. 10. In a telephone interview, he
spoke about his career and about Barbra Streisand, with
whom he has had some of his greatest successes.
At seven, he became the youngest person ever accepted to
the Juilliard School and he had his first hit at 21, the song,
"Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows," sung by Lesley Gore.
He said that having his talent identified so early had been an
advantage.
"I knew I couldn't be a physicist and I didn't have the abil-
ity to play center field for the Yankees," he said. "You tend
toward something you have a talent for. The only time I felt
it was difficult was when I was younger, and I realized I was-
n't out playing ball because for those extra couple of hours,
you have to be at the piano. As I got older, I realized it was a
trade off."
Mr. Hamlisch met Barbra Streisand when he was assistant
to the vocal arranger for "Funny Girl," in which she starred.
"She's a perfectionist," he said. "She gets bad press
because she wants it to be perfect, Which I think is a good
thing. There's a'reason she's the best. She's blessed with a
great voice and ear and great musical instincts. People have
gotten so much joy from her. Every 10 years or so, our paths
cross and we have a great success."
Among those successes were 1973 Academy Awards for
the score and song to the film "The Way We Were," which
started Ms. Streisand and Robert Redford.
On the evening he won those Oscars, he also won an
Oscar for the adaptation of Scott Joplin's ragtime music for
"The Sting," becoming the first person to win three Acade-
my Awards in one night. He won two Emmy Awards in 1994
for Ms. Streisand's television special, "Barbra Streisand: The
Concert."
"A Chorus Line," for which he won a Tony Award and
Pulitzer Prize, was his greatest Broadway success. The
ground-breaking show, which opened in 1975, told the story
of dancers strilggling to make it in the theater. It won nine
Tony Awards and ran for more than 6,000 performances.
"(Director) Michael Bennett called me. I'd just won an
Oscar and he said to come back to New York. I had faith in
his brilliance. It was a lot of work, with two steps forward
and one step back."
Mr. Hamlisch is at work on another show, but says that the
theater has changed.
"It's a real big business," he said. "The shows cost a for-
tune. "The producers are making fortunes. I think there are
too many revivals, but this year, there were a lot of new
shows. "Spring Awakening" has a lot of youth and exuber-
ance. It's wonderful that an art form has the ability to have
"Spring Awakening" and "Young Frankenstein" at the same
time."
In his Lyric shows, Mr. Hamlisch will feature selections
from both Hollywood and Broadway and will pay tribute to
several composers, including Richard Rodgers, Scott Joplin
and Cole Porter.
"Most people are amazed at how funny it is," he says.
"They enjoy the music and
the comedy. There's music, 0 See HAMLISCH,

Chef Frank Ritz prepares
one of the restaurant's
signature dishes, Grouper
Oscar at the High Tide
Beach Grill on Hutchinson
Island. The restaurant
features an extensive
menu of fresh seafood
dishes, pastas, steaks and
even some entrees influ-
enced by the ancestry of
German owner Wolfgang
Baere. The High Tide
Beach Grill is the only
establishment on South
Hutchinson Island with an
outdoor deck overlooking
the Atlantic Ocean.

Tide Beach Grill


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
JENSEN BEACH -
Patrons at the High Tide
Beach Grill on Hutchinson
Island are made to feel
warm, welcome and pam-
pered.
And it's no wonder, since
Owner Wolfgang Baere has
spent more than 40 years
managing some of the
finest hotel properties on
the planet, including the
Ritz-Carlton in Palm
Beach.
But the management is
not the only thing special
about the High Tide Beach
Grill: It's also the only
beachfront establishment
on' South 'Hutchinson
Island, providing patrons
who dine al fresco with the
crashing surf and balmy
breezes as accompani-
ments.
The High Tide is about to
celebrate the first anniver-
sary of its re-opening after
hurricanes Frances and
Jeanne shuttered the
restaurant, known at the
time as Shucker's, in 2004.
It took more than two
years to rebuild, and regu-


lar patrons Wilfred and
Linda Wiegand couldn't be
more pleased that Mr.
Baere didn't throw in the
towel.
"I like the atmosphere,
food and music, and espe-
cially the German Tucher
Hefe beer," Mr. Weigand
said.
His wife emphasized
that it was a tribute to Mr.
Baere's perseverance, the
restaurant was re-opened
after all the storm damage.
*"It's a wonderful place
that Hutchinson Island
deserves, and I think it's
remarkable," she said.
The beer is not the only
thing that reflects the
owner's German heritage.
One of his signature
seafood creations, the
seafood strudel, shows off
the German expertise in
BlHtterteig. These- tender
leaves of phyllo pastry are
stuffed with succulent
shrimp, scallops and fresh
fish and topped with a
creamy orange sauce.
The other German cre-
ation on the menu,
bratwurst, is made from

Today, it's all about
leftovers. Place some stuffing
and gravy in small zippered
freezer bag and tuck them in
a large bag with turkey. Then,
you can just take it Out of the
freezer and thaw. You'll have
a dinner in no time.
Another great quick dinner
for those leftovers is my
version of curry.
After that turkey frame is
cleaned, let's make soup.
Many make turkey soup just
like chicken soup, but take
my word for it, once you've
tried it my mom's way, you'll
never like it any other way.
Tiny meatballs and
noodles make it a one-dish
meal. It's a kid's favorite and,
according to my grandson,
Addison, has magical
healing powers. He's 18 now,
but from the time he was a
little tyke, an upset stomach,
a cold, a headache, a scraped
knee, even a burned finger
would surely get better if
only I would make him some
turkeyy soup."

LEFTOVER TURKEY
OR CHICKEN CURRY
SERVES 4 TO 6
REGULAR OR LOW-
FAT
This curry is a simple
variation of the real thing.
It's a winner and takes
almost no time to prepare.
1/2 cup each onion and
celery, finely chopped
1 tablespoon canola oil or
water
2 cups chicken broth,
homemade or canned
1/2 cup tomato sauce and
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon Worcester-


shire sauce
Several sprigs fresh Italian
parsley, chopped or 1
tablespoon dried
Salt and pepper
1 teaspoon to 1 table-
spoon curry powder,
depending on how strong
a flavor you want
3-4 cups copked turkey or
chicken, cut up
1/4 cup flour
3 to, 4 cups cooked rice or
noodles
Cooked broccoli spears
Lightly brown onion and'
celery in oil, adding water if
necessary. Add the broth,
reserving 1/2 cup. Add the
tomato sauce and water, a
little salt and pepper,
Worcestershire sauce,
parsley and curry powder,
Cook covered about 10
minutes. Add turkey and
cook 10 minutes longer.
Shake remaining broth with
flour and add to the pot,
stirring until thickened,
adding more water or flour
and water if necessary.
Serve in individual dishes
or any way you choose. I
place broccoli spears over
rice or noodles, then ladle
on the curry.

TURKEY SOUP,
ITALIAN STYLE
To make soup, nothing,
beats a pressure cooker. The
soup will take 1/2 hour
compared to two hours in a
pot.

diameter, peeled and
sliced

The popular series has
already closed entry for its
first event at Lake Jovita Golf


Automated:

calculated as of April 1.
The three divisions are:

olds), playing approximate-
ly 6,700 yards; senior (55-
64), approximately 6,400
yards; and super senior (65

For some reason I'm not
comfortable being in the
mid-senior division already!
Throughout the series, the
FSGA maintains a points list
that will determine which
competitors win their age
division. At the conclusion
of the series, each series age
division winner will receive


a commemorative award.

A trio of rare birds
It's not often that a golfer
records that elusive ace.
It's even rarer that one
records an Albatross or
double eagle. Dick Gillmor
of Vero Beach did just this
holing out from 240 yards
on his second shot to the
par-5 fourth hole of the
Dunes Course at Sandridge
Golf Club.
At the Ocean Club at the
Hutchinson Island Mar-
riott in Stuart, Gene
Geoghan aced the second
hole. Not wanting him to
steal the spotlight or win
the skin on the hole,
Jennifer Defrank aced the
hole a moment later.
We tip our hat to all three
of you. Congrats!
James Stammer has been
an avid golfer and golf
enthusiast for 30 years. He

Show on WPSL 1590-AM

Sports writer
PORT'ST. LUCIE After
starring for both the Fort
Pierce Westwobd and Port
St. Lucie girls' golf team dur-
ing her high school career,
Jennifer Gartin is trying Stet-
son on for size.
The 17-year-old recently
signed to play at the univer-
sity, becoming the first
female golfer for Port St.'
Lucie to sign a Division-I
scholarship and the 135th
athlete in the school's histo-
ry to do so.
"Over the summer I was
playing in the Optimus
International and (Stetson)
coach (Floyd) Kerr was rid-
ing by and I hit a really-good
shot," Gartin said. "He came
back over the next three
days and watched me.
"After the final round, he
told me I would be a really
good asset to the team.
"I got to meet the golf
team and play their course.
They were so nice to me.
They call me all the time.
"The town is very small.
The school is very small. I
fell in love with the cam-
pus."
If Gartin's play at the next
level is anything like this
past season with the
Jaguars, Stetson golf fans
will become enamored with

Golfer
From page B11
At the District 17-2A Meet,
Gartin shot a team-high 77
in helping the Jaguars to a
second-place finish, just
behind host Martin County.
Although missing out on
the top spot,Port St. Lucie
earned a spot at the Region
6-2A meet.
Unfortunately, the Jaguar
squad found itself in the
familiar role of runner-up to
champion Martin County.
. Gartin did her best, firing a
77 for the meet a score
that earned her a fifth-place
finish individually after she
won a playoff.
"She's been my most
steady golfer," head coach
Valerie Barrick said. "She's
got a maturity on the course
in how she looks at every-
thing.
"If she has a good shot or
a bad shot, she's learned to
get over it, next shot."
From there, it was on to
the FHSAA Class 2A Girls'
Finals. The Jaguars contin-
ued its impressive run, tying
for ninth-place while Gartin
also shined, finishing in a tie
for 20th individually.
"Going to states was a big
goal," Gartin said. "I wish I'd
done better.
"The first day it was cold,
but I was tied for seventh.
The second day the condi-
tions were better, but I did-
n't play as well. I felt I could
have played better."
Although Gartin fell short
of her goals, Barrick felt her
charge's run through the

postseason was sign of
things to come.
"I think it's great," Barrick
said. "It was expected. I say
that as a compliment.
"I give her all the acco-
lades I can. She's done
everything I've asked of her
and more"
Further evidence of
Gartin's grit and determina-
tion to be the best came ear-
lier this season during the
Treasure Lake Conference
Championships. Just two
weeks after having emer-
gency surgery to remove her
appendix, Gartin fought
through excruciating pain
to shoot a one-under 37 to
edge out Vero's Emily John-
son for the individual title.
"I spent three days in the
hospital," Gartin said. "The
doctor told me I would be
fine, but when I woke up it
was hard for me to walk.
"I was really sore. It took
me two weeks to recover.
"The day I came back I
played in the Treasure Lake
Conference Tournament. I
wanted to withdraw on the
seventh hole. It was hurting
so bad.
"My coach talked me out
of it and I birdied the next
hole and parred out."
Playing in pain is nothing
new for the Jupiter native.
While playing for Westwood,
Gartin suffered a potential
season-ending injury, but
returned to play in the
biggest matches of the year.
"I'm accident prone,"
Gartin said. I fractured my
elbow when I fell on con-
crete at the beginning of my
sophomore year.
"I did play two matches
and districts with one arm
and shot a 117."
Gartin's love of the sport
can be traced by to her
childhood days when she
literally just picked up the
sport.
"No one in my family had
played golf," Gartin said.
"My parents were in a bowl-
ing league and one of their
teammates was over and
had a broken putter and
placed it next to my
playpen.
"I got a hold of it and
started stoking it. I've been
putting since I was 2."
Despite all the success she
has achieved, Gartin knows
there is always something to
work on, especially if she
hopes to continue to thrive
in college and beyond.
"You always have to prac-
tice and work on your
game," Gartin said. "Even
when you're playing your
best.
"I want to go to college
and get my degree. Hopeful-
ly, one day I can qualify for
the LPGA.
"That's been my lifelong
dream."
