Investigators,
attorneys
focusing on
main players
By RITA HART

PORT ST. LUCIE -
Pre-dawn raids were
playing out throughout
St. Lucie County on Nov.
27,. predominately in
Port St. Lucie, as law
enforcement officials
from federal, state and
local agencies, armed
with 18 warrants, con-
ducted a massive opera-
tion involving marijua-
na grow houses.
At 6 a.m., members of
the St. Lucie County
Sheriff's Office, armed
with a search warrant,
arrived at a home
owned by Rodney Claro,
24, at 5113 Pinetree
Drive in Fort Pierce.
Mr. Claro was not
home, but the warrant
allowed officers to
search the residence.
According to the offi-
cers' report, the home
contained no furniture.
However, in a detached
garage, they found two
rooms.
One room allegedly
contained 110 marijua-
na plants growing in
pots, along with a sepa-
rate air conditioning
unit, watering system,
electric timers and grow
lights.
In the second room,
which was under con-
struction, they report-
edly observed an air
conditioner in the
process of being
installed, and "the room
was being wired .with
ballasts."
A few hours later, a
Port St. Lucie Police
Department detective
was executing a warrant
at 772 S.E. Walters Ter-
race in Port St. Lucie.
According to the
police report, items dis-
covered in the house
included 3 marijuana
plants, a box of high
intensity discharge
lamps, a trace of mari-
juana in the vaccum fil-
ter, liquid fertilizer,
black lights, 45 pieces of
PVC pipe and other
equipment "used to
maintain or start a grow
house operation."
St. Lucie County Prop-
erty Appraiser records
indicate the home at
772 S.E. Walters Terrace
was purchased by Rod-
ney Claro in April of
2006 for $269,000.
Mr. Claro was present
at the Southeast Walters
Terrace address, and
reportedly told officers
he purchased the Pine-
tree Drive home less
than two months
before.
Mr. Claro was charged
with attempted cultiva-
tion of marijuana,
based on what was dis-
covered at the Walters
Terrace property, and
cultivation of marijua-

School children treated to


Civil War re-enactment


BY RITA HART
Staff writer
FORT PIERCE Thou-
sands of St. Lucie County"
school children were treat-
ed to a real-life look at
what it was like when
brother battled brother in
the "War between the
States."
The Civil War came to life
on Dec. 1 and 2 on the
"battlefields" at the Savan-
nas Recreations Area on
Midway Road in Fort
Pierce.
The seventh annual Civil


War Re-enactment was
hosted by the 8th Florida
Volunteer Infantry Regi-
ment Company C, a South
Florida Confederate reen-
actment unit, and the 75th
Ohio Volunteer Infantry
Regiment, 'a Union reen-
actment unit, both with'
ties to the Treasure Coast.
Authentic battles, soldier
camps, period shops and
authentic food were on
display throughout the
weekend.
In addition to teaching
local residents and stu-
dents about the Civil War,


the event is a major
fundraiser for the St. Lucie
County Sheriff's Explorer
Post 400, an organization
of more than 100 children
between the ages of 10 and
19. The organization's goal
is to teach youth about the
criminal justice system
while providing them with
opportunities for commu-
nity service and teamwork.

BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
FORT PIERCE Gov.
Charlie Crist, after touring
laboratories at Torrey Pines
Institute for Molecular
Studies last week, affirmed
his support for the boom-
ing biotechnology industry
in personal terms. His
father, who suffers from an
eye disease called macular


degeneration, could one
day receive treatments
being developed by the
research powerhouse and
its spinoff companies.
"I'm very excited about
the possibility of cures," Mr.
Crist said after a brief tour
of the temporary Torrey
Pines headquarters. And
diversifying the state econ-
orly, he added, "is one of
the best ways we can make


sure that it stays stable and
constant."
During th'e Nov. 27 tour,
the Republican governor
talked with Dr. Colette Doo-

Council


tables


bus stop


ruling


BY RITA HART
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE In a sad
twist to a sensitive topic, an 8-
year-old Port St. Lucie boy
was hit by a car near South-
west Rosser Boulevard and
Penrose Avenue while cross-
ing the road on his way home
from school on Nov. 28.
At the time of the accident,
city leaders and school dis-
trict officials were meeting on
the placement of school bus
stops.
Dillon Brackens was flown
to St. Mary's Medical Center
in West Palm Beach in critical
condition. To date, no charges
were filed against the driver of
the car that hit the boy, and
Dillon has since been
released from the medical
center.
The focus of the discussion
between the City Council and
School Board was the city's
on-going request to move bus
stops on major roads that lack
sidewalks.
The city has been consider-
ing passing an ordinance that
would make into law a 2006
city council resolution that
asked the district to keep the
stops away from major roads.
The issue moved to the fore-
front this fall after multiple
incidents occurred involving
children who were hit by
vehicles on their way to or
from school.
However, at a City Council
meeting on Dec. 3, the coun-
cil voted to'table the ordi-
nance issue for six months.
"Six months will put us at
the end of the school year,
and hopefully by then the
school district will have had
enough time to hire their con-
sultant and have their study
underway," said Mayor Patri-
cia Christensen.
After the 2006 resolution
passed, the school board
formed a committee to
address the bus stop issue.
"In May of 2006, I wrote to
the city and asked them to
appoint staff that would have
expertise on proposed rule-
making," said Marty Sanders,
director of Growth Manage-
ment for the school district.
"Port St. Lucie appointed
someone from the. police,
planning, engineering and
public works departments.
We had Sheriff's Office people
there as well. It was a highly-
engaged committee," said Mr.
Sanders.
However, Mayor Chris-
tensen and the members of
city council say they were not
aware the committee had
been formed and never
received minutes from any of
the meetings, which began in
June of 2006.
"The letter sent (by the
'school board) was directed to
the mayor who is no longer in
office," said Mayor Chris-
tensen the day after city
council's meeting.
"Ironically, this morning
(Dec. 4) on my desk were all
the minutes of all the meet-
ings," she said.
Mr. Sanders said the first
few meetings of the commit-
tee allowed each group to
gain an understanding of
each other's problems and
issues. For example, the
police department knows
where sexual offenders reside
and the public works depart-
ment knows where the swales
and construction areas are
located.
"The committee basically
coulchadn't come up with any
suggested language they felt
comfortable with that could
be a global language change

APTHOUS ULCER, OR CANKER SORE
Q: What is an apthous ulcer?
A: Apthous ulcer is the technical name for a canker sore. Canker sores usually
occur inside the mouth where the cheek and gum meet. They can also
develop inside the cheeks and the lips. They can also occur on the side of the
tongue, on the soft palate and on the floor of the mouth. In some people,
canker sores can be brought on by stress. Biting the lip on the inside of the
cheek can also cause them. Even a slight irritation caused by a toothbrush
bristle or a prick from a bone fragment while eating can also start a sore. A small canker O
sore usually is not too painful and does not require treatment. It's likely. to go away in a e
week or two. Larger sores, however, can be extremely painful and cause discomfort even 5
when brushing, eating or speaking. Canker sores, as apposed to cold sores, which are caused
by a virus and are highly contagious, are not contagious. Canker sores also come in simple
and complex form. The simple variety may appear three or four times a year and last four to
seven days. Consult with your dentist any time a sore develops and persists in your mouth.
Presented as a community service by Dr. James Strawn, located at Midway Dental Center, Midway Rd., Ft. Pierce 464-4822

But supporters of the cur-
riculum say the county's high
rates of AIDS and teen preg-
nancies point to the need for
better education.
Opponents are rallying to
make a strong showing
against the program at a Dec.
.8 public forum.
"This is actually a graphic,
explicit curriculum," said crit-
ic Bryan Longworth, associate
pastor at Covenant Taberna-
cle World Outreach Center in
Port St. Lucie. "We're talking
about graphic condom
demonstrations, information
about anal sex, and it's really
information that's not appro-
priate for young people."
The curriculum mentions
condoms and contraception
210 times, compared to 17
mentions of the word "absti-
nence," he said.
"So it definitely promotes
condoms, he said. "When
parents find out what's in the
curriculum, they're shocked.
And the majority of those I've
spoken to are against it."
Pastor Longworth is posting
signs and spreading the word
on his Web site, www.SexEd-
Facts.com.
The school -board began
considering the curriculum
for ninth- to 12th-graders last
summer, following a recom-
mendation from community
leaders at the St. Lucie County
Executive Roundtable.
The group made the recom-
mendation after several
health agencies from county
reported that HIV and AIDS
rates were continuing to esca-
late, said executive director
Christine Epps. It also con-
ducted a survey to gauge local
views on sex education.
The results revealed that the
majority of residents favor
teaching skills to prevent
pregnancy and sexually trans-
mitted diseases. Only 13 per-
cent of about 600 respon-
dents said they wanted
programs that taught children
to abstain completely from
sex, Ms. Epps said.
She suggested that oppo-
nents were sensationalizing
the program's contents.
"There won't be any 'con-
dom field trips,"' she said,
referring to a term that critics
coined to refer to one of the
exercises that would have
seen students go to a store to
purchase condoms. That
exercise is no longer part of
the proposed program, plan-
ners say.
"The biggest part of that
curriculum is teaching kids
refusal skills how to get out
of situations and prevent
themselves from getting into
these 'situations in the first
place," Ms. Epps said.
Of 14 lessons in the curricu-
lum, only one focuses on con-
doms and its main goal is
to prevent HIV and AIDS, she
said.
And that's a key lesson,
community educators say.
About half or 47 percent of all
high school students in the
U.S report having sex at least
once, and close to two thirds
or 63 percent say they've had
sex at least once by the spring
semester of their senior year,
according to statistics from
the National Campaign to
Prevent Teen and Unplanned
Pregnancies.
St. Lucie County has also
been plagued by a high rate of
pregnancies among


teenagers, said Department
of Health administrator Larry
Lee.
Last year, the department
reported 435 births to girls age
15 to 19.
Among girls ages 14 to 18,'
the number of births in the
county stood at 277 in 2006.
"That's been up every year
for the past four years," Mr.
Lee said. "I know everybody
believes in the ideal that kids
should be abstinent until
they're mature and in stable
relationships, but the reality
of our culture is that they're
not."
And in St. Lucie County, the
number of confirmed cases of
HIV and AIDS stands at 2,352,
Health Department reports
show.
But that's a conservative
count, Karen Heizler, senior
community health nurse, said
last October.
About 25 percent of cases
aren't reported, so the true
number of HIV- and AIDS-
positive residents is most like-
ly closer to 2,950, she said. The
county also has the state's
highest AIDS and HIV rates
among black men, Health
Department data show.
"It's pretty alarming, and the
well-being of our young peo-
ple is at stake," said Kathryn
Basile, executive director of
the Children's Services Coun-
cil, a government agency. "It's
something we've needed for a
very long time. Had we had it
years ago, we might not be in
the position that we are now."
Supporters of the curricu-
lum also point to its "opt-out"
provision, which allows par-
ents to select whether or not
to allow their children to take
the classes.
"I don't think that people
who are strongly opposed to it
should impose their will on
the majority of parents who
want and need this informa-
tion," Ms. Basile said.
But elementary school
teacher Jim Thoma disagrees.
The curriculum would pro-
vide misleading information,
promoting condom use, as if
these contraceptives were
completely safe, he said.
"Condoms are ineffective 15
percent of the time or more,
and telling kids that condoms
are safe and that will stop
AIDS is not true. Fifteen per-
cent is a pretty high number,"
he said.
Plus, he argued, condoms
offer little to no protection
against several sexually trans-
mitted diseases, such as HPV
or Human PapillomaVirus.
Mr. Thoma is part of an
effort to circulate a petition
and create public awareness
about the curriculum that he
says' school board members
have done little to publicize.
"Our goal right now is to
alert parents as to what's
going on to let them know
that this is a condom-educa-
tion program," he said. "There
are a lot of people parents,
teachers who just don't
want this," he said.
But for his part, Mr. Lee
wishes both sides could come
together.
"I think everybody has the
best intentions for the youth
of the community. I hate to
see us get into this kind of
conflict," he said. "We're doing
what we can to prevent this
disease from claiming any
other lives."

PSL man keeps police busy in one day

Just before 1 a.m. on Nov. 27, Port St. Lucie police
received a call from a motorist who was behind a vehicle
moving erratically at the intersection of S.W Port St.
Lucie and S.W. Bayshore boulevards.
When an officer spotted the vehicle at the intersection
of S.W. Bayshore and Crosstown Parkway, he reportedly
saw it stop at a green light for approximately 30 seconds,
then stop in the middle of the intersection for 10 seconds
more.
When the driver proceeded, his car reportedly crossed
into the inside lane twice with his left tires.
The officer stopped the driver, identified as Ryan D.
McCorrnack, 29, of 1243 S.W. Heather St., Port St. Lucie.
According to the police affidavit, Mr. McCormack had
bloodshot and dilated eyes, appeared nervous and emit-
ted a strong order of alcohol.
As back-up officers arrived and the first officer
returned to his vehicle to run a records check, Mr. McCor-
mack allegedly took off at a high rate of speed.
The officers pursued him, but eventually lost sight of
Mr. McCormack's vehicle on S.W. Duxbury Avenue, but
not before they reportedly observed him running several
stop signs.
Less than five hours later, at 4:20 a.m. on the same day,
Port St. Lucie police were called to a home in the 600
block of S.W. Brandford Drive.
The homeowner there reportedly found an unknown
male in the kitchen of the residence. He told police prop-
erty inside the residence had been damaged.
The suspect fled as the homeowner called police, but
officers were shortly able to apprehend an individual
matching the description provided by the homeowner.
The homeowner later positively identified the person
apprehended by police as the man found inside the
home.
That man was Ryan D. McCormack, who was subse-
quently charged with driving with a suspended license
with knowledge and fleeing and eluding a law enforce-
ment officer in the first incident, and burglary and crimi-
nal mischief in the second.

+IcHawk Levy
Most people come in to buy
a gift for that special some-
one in their life and they are
looking for direction as to
what to buy. Well, here's my
advice when shopping for a
gift of jewelry. You should
answer a few questions to
yourself first. The number
one question is, what is your
budget? A lot of people
answer that it doesn't matter
.and they'll look and see what
they like. This almost never
works because the average
consumer doesn't know by
just looking how much some-
thing is. If you are dealing
with a well trained jewelry
professional and give them a
realistic budget, they will ask
you the appropriate ques-
tions to fit you into the right
gift. Everyone has a budget,
be it $50 or $5,000. If you are
looking at something that is
way beyond your means,
then you are wasting pre-
cious shopping time and
emotions falling in love with
something you can't afford.
You'll find yourself being sold
something you don't want
and regretting it later. Budget
buying will keep that eco-
nomic grinch from stealing
your christmas. If the person
standing on the other side of
the counter at the jewelry
store is a professional, they
will fit your budget, your
needs, and get that WOW
response you are looking for.
Hawk Levy has
been in the trade since 1989.

We need town hall meetings

Bring back Town Hall meetings to give the people a forum
and voice. The elected officials need to hear what the peo-
ple want and think about issues concerning all of us at this
point in time. The five- minute public comment period
before the scheduled town meetings do not serve the same
purpose.
At the last meeting that I attended, there was only one
other person who up to speak after I voiced my concerns.
So there were a total of two people who commented on
the state of our town.
Let's get together and speak out about the mess that is
only getting worse with each passing day. If you buy into
the old adage that "You can't fight city hall," then that is
what you get: a vast silent majority that pays for their
silence in more ways than just higher taxes.
If the towns do their typical dance of delayss, let the
Hometown News show them just how quickly a town hall
meeting could be organized.
If the town officials refuse to participate then let them
read about it in your newspaper along with a list of the
excuses they give for not showing up. Call it an informal
report card.
A town hall meeting is an informal public meeting
derived from the traditional town meetings of New Eng-
land. Everybody in a community is invited to attend, voice
their opinions, and hear the responses from public figures
and elected officials, although attendees rarely vote on an
issue.
In today's heterogeneous communities with large popu-
lations, more often town hall meetings are held so that peo-
ple can influence elected officials in their decision-making
or to give them a chance to feel that their voices are being
heard.
There are no specific rules or guidelines for' holding a
town hall meeting. If the turnout is large, and the objective
is to give as many people as possible an opportunity to
speak, the group can be broken down into smaller discus-
sion groups.
Participants all hear an opening presentation and then
group-up to discuss an aspect of the presentation. Each
group appoints someone to summarize their group's dis-
cussion.

Question Torrey Pines

The city of Port St. Lucie agreed to pay Torrey Pines 1.6 mil-
lion to buy equipment and furnishings. The Torrey Pines Insti-
tute was supposed to bring great things to the community.
Let's figure out how much it has cost the city and the tax-
payers so far. The city has gone amuck with people spend-
ing money granting money. Torrey pines was probably one
of the worst decision this city council has ever made. They
should be put in their place about spending. Don't com-
plain after your taxes go up, do something now.

Water crisis in Florida

What crisis? All over Florida, local governments are
implementing water restrictions and increasing water and
sewer rates to force citizens to conserve. Yet, at the same
time, they remove beautiful vegetation and replace it with
Disney World style sprinkled vegetation. Just look around in
your community. There'are examples everywhere.

Make rants and raves easier

An e-mail link or Web site-based e-mail option at the top
Sor bottom of Rants and Raves would make the process of
contributing, contacting and communicating with Home-
town News much easier than it is now. I had to call twice to
find out how to post.
' Editor's note: Thank you for the excellent suggestion. We
will check with out technology department to see if that can
be implemented.

Say no to drugs

Drugs are for whims and weaklings. We shall take back
our communities one and then two, then four, etc. We are
on the winning team and stand tall in troubled times.

and they are


More respect is needed

We need more respect toward all races, creeds and colors.
When laws are broken, the punishment must fit the crimes.
We must help the victims of crime and send a message to
those who violate our laws. We must never let our guard
down. Our law enforcement officials and armed forces must
have the power they need to stop those that have no respect
for God and country.

Honor the children

We must be on guard to help our youth from those who
target them. Our children are worth saving, Do not discrim-
inate. We must learn that this nation has always honored its
children. Let Gov. Crist know that we rpust save all of our
children from jails and show them that we care. Take all
those who threaten our children, and stop those who think
they can break the laws of our great nation.

Ranter implores slow drivers to stay right

To the individual who thought they only needed to stay right
if there is a sign marked "Slower traffic keep right:" Do you
fasten your seat belts every time you drive by a sign imploring
seat belt use, then unbuckle them a mile later?
Is it OK to drive drunk as long as there aren't any anti-DUI
billboards in sight?
The signs are placed every few miles as reminders for those
with short attention spans. It's a pity that many still don't get it.

Confused about right
versus left traffic lane laws

The reason I'm calling is because of the article you had a
while back about people riding in the left lane, and you had an
article that said the law said they didn't have to pull over to the
right.
That to me is confused by the article you just had on that
same thing. I am just wondering. Which is right about driving
in the left lane?
Do you have to get out of the left lane if you are driving slow?

Plans to keep riding in the left lane

This is a clarification for speeders.
When driving the freeway, I often find. myself in the left lane
traveling at the posted speed limit. I would very much prefer to
use the right lane, but inevitably when passing an oncoming
vehicle ramp it becomes impossible to get out of the way due to
the frequent bumper-to-bumper string of speeding cars in the,
left lane.
Whenever I am approached from behind by aggressive
individuals and I am not approaching an on-ramp, I always get
over to the right as quickly as I can.
However, the speeders, always short on patience, inevitably
begin passing on the right making it impossible to get over as
they are yet again in a close-knit string.
When I am in the left lane and approaching an on-ramp that
is thick with cars, I do not get over so that they can get on.
Unfortunately, this is where the speeders exhibit their most


dangerous trait, which is to pass on the right at a high rate of
speed in the same lane as entering vehicles.
So to those speeders who don't understand, others are not
responsible for your road rage. You need to justify speeding,
tailgating and public endangerment speaks volumes for your
lack of responsibility for your own actions.
Since there seems to be confusion about the right lane, left
lane concept. Let me clarify it for you. The right lane is for cars
going 40-70 mph and the left is for cars going 70. Neither lane is
appropriated for those who seem to think that breaking the law
gives them a legal right to be a bully.
For those who feel the need to speed, I'd like to suggest
therapy. There you can examine whyyou feel the need to
control others and also examine your own inability to adapt to
a reasonable and safe social situation.
Editor's note: City and county roads do not necessarily have to
follow the state-rules of slower drivers staying in the right lane.
However, unlike the ranter who believes she has the right to go
the speed limit in the left lane on Interstate 95 (a state road),
there is another statue that reads: "Upon all roadways, any
vehicle proceeding at less than the normal speed of traffic at the
time and place and under the conditions then existing shall be
driven in the right-hand lane..." (Florida Statutes, Title XXIII,
Chapter 316: State Uniform Traffic Control). So, technically, if
most of the traffic is going 80 mph (which is breaking the law),
she too is breaking the law because she is impeding the flow of
traffic. In this case; two wrongs do not make a right.

This ranters says, 'Huh?' to 'Ho, Ho, Ho' ban
Please tell me it isn't so, I just heard a rumor and I sure hope
it's a rumor. With the holiday season coming upon us with
Christmas, I heard that Santa Claus can't say, "Ho, Ho, Ho"
anymore. I have no idea what our world is coming to. (It) makes
you want to move to another country. I hope this is truly a
rumor and I hope to hear Santa Claus say, "Ho, Ho, Ho."
If there are people offended by Santa Claus saying, "Ho, Ho,
Ho," then these people should stay home (in) December and
not go shopping at the malls.
Editor's note: The ranter may want to think twice about
moving to another country. The story on the banning of"Ho, Ho,
Ho" came out ofAustralia. It was reported in the Herald Sun Nov.
11 that the Westaffrecruitmentfirmn, which supplies Santas .
across Australia was asking their Santas to tone down the
signature line
"The reason behind that is we find that in some cases the little
kids can get a bit scared of the deep 'Ho, Ho Hos'and we ask them
to be mindful of keeping their voices to a lower level,"said Glen
Jansz, the company's operations manager: "And kids are proba-
bly more included to understand 'Ha, Ha, Ha' than 'Ho, Ho, Ho.'"
Many Aussie Santas were defying the suggestion.

Jews shouldn't be
offended by Christmas greeting

It's Merry Christmas. The birth of Christ our lord and
savior.
Since when did I start to offend anyone by saying, "Merry
Christmas."
On Dec. 18, 2005, CBS Sunday Morning commentator Ben:
Stein said, "I am a Jew and every single one of my ancestors
was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when
people call those beautiful lit up bejeweled trees, Christmas
trees. I don't feel threatened. I don't feel discriminated

Letters


Illegal immigrants are a waste of tax dollars

Dear Editor,

You are a working couple with children. You may have
some form of health insurance,. but not the best. You and
your family are legally here. You or your children come
down with a serious illness. What do you do?
Go to the hospital. You fill out forms and are liable for all
costs that exceed deductibles. Or, if you are without health
insurance, you pay the whole tab. Go to your doctor, the
same.. *


Npw, when an illegal Hispanic comes down with a serious
illness or hang nail, he and/or his family will go to the emer-
gency room' of their local hospital. They are not asked to fill
out forms and will not be liable for one dime of the costs
they run up. They get free health care, even though they are
illegal in our country. Who do you think pays for the illegals
free health care?
If illegals are here federal law states that you must provide
health care, education and other welfare benefits for them.
However, no law 'states that you must permit them to
remain in your community. Crime aside, when your com-
munity is'free of illegal Hispanics, you will no longer waste
precious tax dollars.


Illegal Hispanics are in all of the cities in the United States.
Their numbers will increase if nothing is done about it. The
mayors of these cities will not address this problem of His-
panics and the mayors think that it is only a federal prob-
lem, i.e., nothing will be done about it.
Something to think about next election or when reviewing
the school budget.
Something must be done.
Sincerely,

Michael Agius
Port St. Lucie

na, possession of more than 20 grams of
marijuana and possession of drug para-
phernalia, based on what police discov-
ered at the Pinetree Drive resident.
These are just two examples of the
arrests made throughout the county, the
first of which began at 4:30 a.m.
At a news conference on Nov. 27, Port
St. Lucie Police Chief John Skinner said
many of those charged in connection
with the raid were employees or owners
of Global Home Builders. The president
of that company, Jose Raul Cepero, 69,
was not charged in last week's raid.
However, his son, Roberto Alberto
Cepero, 45, vice president of partner
company Global Home Builders of the
Treasure Coast, was arrested and
charged with conspiracy to traffic in
marijuana, possession of a firearm by a
convicted felon and trafficking in 28
grams or more of cocaine.
Roberto Alberto Cepero's son, Roberto.
Patricio Cepero, 23, was also arrested
and charged with conspiracy to traffic
in marijuana.
The treasurer of Global Home Builders
of the Treasure Coast, Raul Alfredo
Cepero, was charged with conspiracy to
traffic in marijuana and cultivation of
marijuana.
According to the company's Web site,
the elder Cepero "comes from a long
line of builders spanning several gener-
ations. His son, Roberto Cepero, has
been general manager of construction
for the past 20 years and his grandson,
Roberto Cepero, Jr. is a licensed resi-
dential contractor who also works in the
family business." '
As of press time, 22 individuals had
been arrested as a result of the law
enforcement operation, which involved
eight federal, state and local agencies.
Seized in the operation were 400 mari-
juana plants, 420 pounds of packaged
marijuana, $57,000 in cash, 38 grams of
cocaine, four handguns, eight vehicles
and one boat.
As of press time, theinvestigation was
still ongoing, said Assistant State Attor-
ney Daryl Krauza.
"A decision probably won't be made
for another couple of weeks on all the
charges," he said.
"A lot of the evidence is still being pre-
sented to us, and the crime scene inves-
tigators are doing a lot of work. I can
guarantee you, however, that racketeer-
ing and conspiracy charges will be filed
on most of the main players by Friday,"
said Mr. Krauza, who added that many
of the charges will fall under the Racke-
teer Influenced and Corrupt Organiza-
tions, or RICO, Act.
"Under RICO you're talking first-
degree felony and up to 30 years," he
said.

Document your sources when tracing family history


You've been research-
ing your family and
entering names,
dates and other pieces of
the puzzle, but have you
noted where you obtained
this information?
Will you remember
where you found it, next
month, year, or 10 years
from now?
The answer is a guaran-
teed no.
So, starting today,
document everything
before you get too far
down the road and have to
backtrack. This will help
your research tremen-
dously in the future, when
you need to find that
elusive bit of information
that will help you climb
the inevitable brick wall.
It also gives other
researchers confidence in
your work.
When I first started
researching, I excitedly


took down every fact I
found.
Of course it was correct;
it was right there on the
official document, in the
book at the library, or
because grandmother said
so.
Fortunately, I did get
copies of most of the
official documents, or can
remember where the
tombstone is, but I didn't
actually document it in my
database.
There are still many
facts in my database that
are not documented
properly. It is still one of
my inajor downfalls,
getting caught up in the
story and not wanting to
take the time to docu-
ment.
Sending your genealogy
out into the world without
citing your sources is
sending it out with no
validation.

BRENDA K. SMITH
Treasure Coast
Genealogical Society
Almost invariably, when
I find some exciting new
fact about my ancestor,
there is no source given.
This leaves me totally in
the dark.
Exactly where did this
date, spouse name, etc.,
come from?
Someone must have


known, but chances are,
the person that put the
information on the
Internet, or in the book,
just copied it from some-
one else, who also copied
it from someone.
As far as I know, it could
have, and might as well be,
just made up to suit the
purpose.
Each fact recorded for
your ancestor should be
documented with exactly
where it was obtained.
A source, regardless of
how informal, is where we
obtained the information.
It may have come from a
probate record, family
Bible, census record, or
from grandma Beth.
Everything needed for
another researcher to find
this source should be
included. This leaves a
trail for you, as well as
others who want to follow
your line of descent.


Traditionally, sources
have been classified as
primary and secondary. A
primary record is one
created close to the event,
by a person reasonably

event.
A secondary record is
one that was created
sometime later. The
distinction is not always
clear. So a secondary
source should always be
backed up with other
sources, a primary one
when possible.
All that said, there are no
sources that are guaran-
teed as being correct.
Death certificates often
contain wrong informa-
tion, with the informant
not knowing the birth date
or the names of the
parent's of the deceased.
Tombstones also fre-

information. A relative in

our family is actually
buried under the wrong
name. This makes a
strong case for thoroughly
researching each person
and finding as many
sources as you can.
The more sources you
find, the better conclusion
you can come to as to
which is the correct data.
With the tremendous
amount of information
being put on the Web, you
must always remember
that it is all suspect until
you have personally
verified that it is correct.
Never download some-
one else's information into
your work until you
document it and are
satisfied that the prepon-
derance of evidence shows
that this data belongs to
your family.
Trying to sort out
unrelated individuals,
much less whole family
groups from your database
can be a nightmare.
Your sources don't have
to be anything elegant.
Here is the simple, but
proper way to site the
common genealogy
sources.
Enough information
needs to be given for the
next researcher to find the
source.
V Books: Author, book
title, (publisher, publica-
tion date), page numbers,
location of source
Newspaper clippings:
"Title of piece," name of
newspaper, city, date of
publication, page num-
bers, and location of
source.
* Vital records: Kind of
record, date, file or certifi-
cate number, where record
was issued, location of
source.
Web site: Name of site,
owner (if known), URL,
date last verified

This year, give holiday gifts of health, wellness


Gift-giving is such
an important part
of the holiday
season, and while I can't
offer any suggestions
that will make you
wealthy, I can certainly
help with healthy.
Try to use your imagi-
nation and come up with
gifts that don't cost a lot,
but mean a lot.
Give the gift of having
fun while learning:' For
children, two catalogs,
IQKids and Free Spirit,
offer toys games and
books that stretch their
minds, even if they don't
know it. From old
favorites, such as Lincoln
Logs and Lego and crafts
kits to funny books on
surviving parents and
coping with the trauma
of the teens, these two
catalogues offer a lot of
choices for parents who
want a gift that will last ,
more than one day.
Visit www.IQKIDS.com
or wwiv.freespirit.com
for gift ideas.
Give the gift of you:


Make a date with your
youngster to spend time
together, doing some-
thing he or she chooses.
If it involves going to the
mall, see if you can work
a power walk in with it,
too. Give a friend who is
a caregiver the gift of an
hour to get out and run
errands or get a mani-
cure. Offer to baby-sit so
your sister can get to the
gym or offer to walk a
friend's dog while he's at
work. Both you and the
dog get exercise that way.
You can make up little
card or IOUs that can be
"redeemed" by the
recipient.
Give the gift of motiva-
tion: If you know that
someone who wants to
stArt a diet or exercise
program, give them a
trial membership in a
health club or wellness
center. If that's a bit
intimidating or expen-
sive, how about a
pedometer or fanny pack
for change and keys and
some tapes to listen to
while walking? Or, offer
to be an exercise buddy
and walk with your friend
on a regular basis. That's
a gift for both of you.
A word of caution: A
piece of exercise equip*
ment is only a good
investment-if you know
the person wants it and
will use it. You don't want
to give a gift that says,
"go on a diet."
If you know someone
would like a treadmill or
stationary bike, let them
try it out and make sure


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well
they're comfortable with
it. Check with a doctor to
make sure it's appropri-
ate, too.
Exercise videos are a
fun way to exercise and
can be used at home, in
any weather, at anytime.
A good source of news
videos is at Collage
Videos. You can view 60-
second segments at
www.collagevideo. com.
Also, eBay and half com
often sell copies of the
same videos for less. If
it's a gift, you'll want to
make sure it's in new or
like new condition.
For someone newto
exercise, Leslie Sansone
has a series of tapes that
are basic walking to
music, with no fancy
steps to master. They're
great for beginners or
people who want to
exercise gently.
Give the gift of relax-
ation: A trip to a day spa
is a real luxury, but even
a facial, massage or
pedicure makes a treat
for both men and.
women. For home use, a
paraffin hand bath is a

can relax tired feet.
Again, check with a
physician if the recipient
has medical problems.
Give the gift of good
ideas: A cookbook that
emphasizes healthy
eating is a great gift for
the cook. Check out the
American Heart Associa-
tion and American
Diabetes Association for
recommendations.
Other options: There
are many catalogues that
offer, equipment to make
the activities of daily life
easier for people with
mobility problems.
One such catalogue,
Sammons Preston, offers
a wider variety of aids for
writing, eating, reaching,
bathing and other things
most of as take for
granted. You can call
(800) 323-5547 or visit
www.sammonspreston.co
m. Functional Solutions
also offers useful prod-
ucts to make life easier.
Call (800) 235-7054 or
visit
www.BeAbleToDo.com.
For the visually
impaired, talking books
make a wonderful gift.
You can get more infor-
mation at (888) 657-7323
or www.loc.gov/nls/.
Are you joking? Finally,
don't forget that laughter
can be the best medicine!
Look in the humor
section of your local
bookstore for books that
will give a good laugh.
Just remember to be
sensitive to the recipient
and choose something
appropriate.

War
From page Al
iff's Office and a volunteer
with the Explorers.
A Civil War buff since
childhood, ,he has been
involved with reenactments
of the war since 1999.
"The students get to see
history," said Special
Deputy Rausch.
'N mail:,, when you go to
school, you read about his-
tory. This way, they get to
see it, touch it and experi-
ence it. They see how the
food was cooked, how the
camps were set up and they
get to touch a rifle. They can
see what life was like in the
1860s," he said.
The Civil War, or "War
Between the States," began
in April of 1861. By the time
it was over four years later
with the surrender of Con-
federate General Robert E.
Lee to Union General
Ulysses S. Grant, almost
665,000 were dead.
On Nov. 30, approximately
3,000 St. Lucie County
School District middle
school students were at
Savannas Recreation Area
for a preview of.the week-
end's events.
One of the groups partici-
pating in the weekend
events was the Common
Ground Church of Fort
Pierce, whose pastor, Todd
Smith, and church volun'-
teers became known as the
3rd Rhode Island Artillery
Company A. '
Dressed in period costume
and camping out for the
weekend, the group even
spoke to each other, in the
language of the mid-1800si
"I was here last year
watching, and this year I
asked Pastor Smith (known
as Lt. Smith for the week-
end) if I could get involved
this year," said 13-year-old
Cody Stone.
"We stayed overnight in
tents and in these clothes all
weekend. It was an authen-
tic camp," he said.
There were roles for the
women to play during the
battles as well.
"The women run out on
the field when their 'hus-
bands' die," said Jerry Kor-
man, another member of
Common Ground Church.
"We are history buffs and
actors. We try to educate the
public as to the true causes
of the war and what really
happened," said Mr. Kor-
man.
Special Deputy Rausch
said this is important
because "we are not teach-
ing history in our school
systems the way we should."
"The Civil War defined us
as to what we are today. See-
ing it like this is a lot more
real to students than read-
ing about it in a textbook,"
he said.
"Sgt." 'Tim Carbaugh,
another church member,
said his group was having
the most fun.
"We get to shoot the can-
nons," he said.
Mr. Carbaugh also saidithe
campfires at night were an
opportunity for participants
to build a sense of commu-
nity.
"The entire weekend was a
good family experience," he
said.
Joe Overstreet, a Sebastian
resident who spent 22 years
in the military before retir-
ing, is a Civil War buff who
was participating as a foot
soldier in the 1st Virginia 1st
Calvary Company A.
He became interested in
the battle when he was a
watch standing engineer on
the Delta Queen in New
Orleans and had an oppor-
tunity to meet people who
were Civil War historians.
"For the past 11 years, I
have had time to read every-
thing and anything about
the CivilWar," he said.
Jimmy Shirley of West
Palm Beach was participat-
ing as a Yankee shooter for
the 7th Florida Company B.
He noted that the Civil War
regiments were identified by
the state they came from.
"There was a reason for


this," said Mr. Shirley.
"There was a patriotic
appeal then where men
from entire streets in one
city would sign up for the
war together. This helped
keep soldiers from running
away, because everyone
knew each other. If you ran
away, you'd be labeled a
coward, which was a capital
offense back then," said Mr.
Shirley.
Mr. Shirley noted that
many of the participants in
the weekend's events had
personal connections to
today's military forces.1


"One of the noteworthy
things is that all class and
society of people are
involved, including veterans
and parents of kids that were
wounded in Iraq," he said.
Mr. Shirley is one of them.
Staff Sgt. Luke Shirley, his
son, received a Purple Heart
after iL.-plirini' on an impro-
vised explosive device in
Baghdad in December, 2006.
lie lost his right arm and
right leg in the explosion
and suffered other injuries
as well.
It was his third deploy-
ment to Iraq.

Suspected


burglar less


than neighborly


BY RITA HART
Staff writer


PORT ST. LUCIE -A Port
'St. Lucie man has been
arrested; for two burglaries
less than a half-mile from
his home.
Kevin Michael Murphy,
25, of 1402 S.W. Empire St.,
has been charged with two
counts of burglary to a res-
idence, both of which
occurred on the same. day.
One of the burglaries
occurred less than half a
block from Mr. Murphy's
home, while the other
occurred three-tenths of a
mile away.
At 5:39 p.m. on Nov. 26,
police were called to a
home in the 1300 block of
S.W. Heather Street, after
the homeowners arrived
home and discovered a
broken bedroom window.
The sheets and pillow case
on the bed under the win-
dow contained blood
stains.
The room was reportedly
ransacked, and the home-
owners discovered a hand-
gun, flat screen TV, digital
camera, video camera and
a gold cross necklace were
missing.
The homeowners report-
edly called police a week
earlier, when they

observed a white male
"hanging around" the
back of the residence dur-
ing the night. The home-
owners told police their
neighbor had observed the
same suspect in tHat loca-
tion earlier in the day.
The suspect was
described as having short
hair, 20-25 years of age
and five-feet eight-inches
to five- feet ten-inches tall.
Several hours after the
break in was reported,
police were called to a
home in the 400 block of
S.W. Todd Avenue, in
response to a report that a
white male with dark short
hair, Awearing jeans and a
dark shirt, was peering
into a window of the
home. The man fled when
the owner called 911.
While the police officer'
was talking with that
homeowner, he was noti-
fied by a 911 dispatcher
that another call had come
in from two doors away,
reporting a break-in.
When officers went to
that home and observed
an open fence gate, they
saw the man fitting the
description provided by
the homeowner.
The suspect, who had
exited the home when
confronted by the home-
owner, fled from police,
but was apprehended by
officers and taken into
custody.
The suspect was identi-
fied as Mr. Murphy, who
reportedly had the gold
cross necklace belonging
to the first homeowner in
his pocket. In addition, his
right hand was wrapped in
a rag, which was placed
into evidence to be com-
pared with the blood
found on the linens in the
home in the 1300 block of
S.W. Heather Street.
Mr. Murphy was trans-
ported to the St. Lucie
County jail without inci-
dent,
At press time, he
remained incarcerated on
$100,000 bond.

at this time," said Mr. Sanders.
"This is one of the city's frus-
trations. Sometimes the
issues are a lot more complex
the more you look at them,"
lie said.
Mr. Sanders said at thle
meeting on Nov. 28, the city
was surprised at how complex
a system it is when consider-
ing where bus stops should
be.
"It's a bigger transportation
system than Palm Tran in.
Palm Beach County," he said.
"We have GPS (Global Posi-
tioning System) and automat-
ic vehicle locators on every
bus. We can track routes, how
long the buses stop, even
whether the door was open,"
said Mr. Sanders.
"We also look at the route of
every student from their
home to the bus stop. For
example, is there a barking
dog that creates a hazard for a
child there? Our Transporta-
tion Department looks at all
these issues," said Mr.
Sanders.
At the Dec. 3 council meet-
ing, Councilwoman Michelle
Berger acknowledged the
complicated nature of deter-
mining bus stop issues.
"I met with some officials
from the Transportation
Department today, and they
tried to enlighten me as to
how involved it is to create a


bus stop and then to move
one," she said.
"I think at some point the
Transportation Department
has done too good of a job,
because these kids are just like
a gunshot; they are going
from one stop and splattering
out to all different schools,
and I think the problems with
the bus stops are just a by-
product of what we've had to
deal with so long with the
schools," she said.
Mr. Sanders said the school
district is aware of the city's
requests and tries to comply
whenever possible.
However, he said an exam-
ple of when this isn't possible
is the fact that the city's pro-
posed ordinance would pro-
hibit putting a bus stop where
sidewalks don't exist.
"We have 32 different devel-
opments in the city that we
couldn't serve without stu-
dents having to walk across
arterials (major roads)," said
Mr. Sanders.
"For example, there is no
sidewalk at Walton Lakes on
Walton Road. If we don't put
the bus stop on Walton Road,
the children have to walk to
Village Green or Lennard, but
both are arterials. So the only
place we can put a bus stop,
according to their ordinance,
is to go three blocks south of
Walton, and they would have
to cross Walton Road to get
there. And this is just one
example," said Mr. Sanders..
At last week's meeting
between the school district
and the city, the district dis-
cussed the issues that were
presented by the committee,
"and the problems as to why
they couldn't suggest concrete


language like the city want-
ed," according to Mr. Sanders.
Mayor Christensen said a
decision was also made to
form a task force comprised of
members of the school board,
city council, the county and a
representative of the city of
Fort Pierce. The task force's
objective would be to look for
other funding mechanisms
for sidewalks, according to
Mayor Christensen.
The mayor also said City
Manager Don Cooper is now
on the committee that met on
Nov. 28.
"Mr. Cooper chose to
appoint himself so we can be
assured that the information
will come back to us," said
Mayor Christensen.
Mayor Christensen has also'
formed a separate task force
in an effort to continue edu-
cating students and adults
regarding road safety.
"It amazes me, even with
everything in the paper and
on the news, that we still have
children and adults walking
on the wrong side of the road.
We've been in the process of
putting a program together
and hope to have something
concrete by mid-January that
we can blast on the airwaves
during drive time, and also
use our government access
channels. This needs to be a
group effort. It isn't just a Port
St. Lucie issue," said Mayor
Christensen.
A follow-up meeting
between the school board and
the city, which the public may
attend, is scheduled for
Wednesday, Dec. 12 at 9 a.m.
at the School Board offices,
4204 Okeechobee Road, Fort
Pierce.

Alzheimer's disease, diabetes

has invested. $32 million in
the institute.
"What's happening here is
terribly impressive, and I'm
committed to it," Mr. Crist
said. "I want to make sure
that we continue to push for-
ward as far as we can."
Torrey Pines President
Richard Houghten, who led
the tour, said later he was
pleased the governor chose
to focus on the biotech
industry.
'On his daylong swing
through South Florida, Mr.
Crist also stopped at the
Scripps Research Institute,
which is expanding its Jupiter
campus.
"It's been sort of a biotech
day for me," the governor
said.


Torrey Pines is building a
10D,000-square-foot campus
in western Port St. Lucie,
scheduled for completion in
20A9. Until'then, the institute
is working from temporary
labs at Harbor Branch
Oceanographic Institution.

to tap into the fund to bring

Royal Caribbean has revitalized

Majesty of the Seas ship


w~i~


Y es, indeed, she's been
revitalized, refur-
bished and redone all
over and it certainly shows.
. As soon as we boarded the
ship on Deck 4, we noticed a
much brighter, newer look
to the atrium area. The
elevator, up to the Wind-
jammer Cafe on Deck 11,
had new paneling and
brighter lighting. The cafe,
now called the Windjammer
Marketplace, features Asian,
Latin, Mediterranean and
American menus.
Chatting with a floor
supervisor, we learned that
the extreme makeover had
taken 28 days by a couple of
thousand workers, mostly
from Europe, working at the
Grand Bahama Shipyard in
Freeport, at a cost of $40
million. We thought that
was impressive when you
think of how long it takes
and how much it costs to
build a new ship from
scratch.
The bow-to-stern
makeover involved cabins,
suites, the Windjammer
(buffet) area, both main
dining rooms, spa and
fitness center, youth area,
conference rooms, pool
deck, theater and casino.
Some specific additions
and changes:
Compass Deli, which
features a sandwich bar,
soups, made-to-order
salads, crepes, pannini and
energy drinks.
Johnny Rockets, a 1950s
diner with jive singing and
dancing servers. Here the
traditional hamburger,
milkshake, French fries and
onion rings reign supreme.
Sorrento's pizzeria,
which serves various
delectable pizza all day and
well into the night.
Caf6 Latte-tudes, which
serves Seattle's Best coffee
drinks.
Freeze, an ice cream
parlor that dispenses
favorite flavors.
The two renamed main
dining rooms sport newv
upholstery, plush carpets,
wall decor and window
draperies.
In all, we found that the
food was excellent, and the
presentation and service
were well beyond expecta-
tions.
The expanded Day Spa
and Shipshape Fitness
Center, relocated a deck
lower, featured 10 new
treatment rooms, a relax-
ation area, beauty salon,
manicure and pedicure
stations, and a teeth
whitening room.
There were new station*
ary bikes and a new aero-

center.
The new theater produc-
tion show features the
music of Stevie Wonder, Ray
Charles, Tina Turner and
others. The dancers, singers
and live musicians provided
a high-energy, thoroughly
enjoyable performance.
The Schooner piano bar
area is upgraded with new
upholstery on the chairs,
carpeting and window
treatments. This was our
favorite pre-dinner cocktail
spot. The service was great
as were the drinks.
The Boleros Latin Bar and
dance floor, with its live
Latin band, was packed
after the show, with rhyth-
Smic dancers doing the salsa,
meringue, pachanga,
cumbia, etc. Latin specialty
drinks such as the mojito,
caipirinha and others flow
freely.
All guest cabins and suites
were refurbished. The hall

carpeting looked bright and

The enhanced fleet-wide
bedding program continued
on the Majesty with new
mattress frames, 9-inch
thick spring mattresses,
pillows, sheets and com-
forters. All of this makes for
a terrific nights' sleep. This
improvement alone was
worth the price of the
cruise.
Other improvements
included: wall-mounted,
flat-screen TVs, anew
conference center with
comfortable seating and
audiovisual facilities, Wi-Fi

upgrades in the casino area
and more.
The refurbished Majesty
of the Seas sails out of
Miami on three- and four-
night cruises to Nassau,.
CocoCay (Royal Caribbean's
private island), and Key
West and would be a great
experience for anyone
wanting a short cruise. We
would especially recom-
mend this ship for first-time
cruisers because they'd
certainly be impressed
enough to want to become
repeat cruisers..

Women: vote for a

I am an 87-year-old

In 1975, this country

time the women who earned

Economically, U.S.
Hispanics produce
more than consume
Hello, I'm replying to the
"Illegals chose to violate law"
rant.
First of all, what law are you
talking about?
As far as I know, refugees
from other countries are still
welcomed in the Estados
Unidos deAmerica. The
Statue of Liberty still stands:
"Give me your tired, your
poor, etc."
The laws you refer to have
not been passed by Congress
and will never be enforced.
Second, the U.S. has 40
million Hispanic people. U.S.
Hispanics are the fifth largest
Spanish community in the
world. Only Mexico, Colom-
bia, Spain and Argentina
have more.
By 2050, it will be the
largest, so get on the train or
get run over. Isn't it interesting
that so few Hispanics are
actually incarcerated in our
prisons?
That's because they are
bugy hard at work contribut-
ing to our economy and
raising their families.
It is simple economics. As .
long as Hispanics produce
more than they consume,
they will remain welcome.
Hire one. Youwill be glad
you did.

From page A3
At that point, the sus-
pect reportedly struck the
officer in the shoulder and
fled on foot. The loss pre-
vention officer then called
911.
When police arrived, the
loss prevention officer told
them she had recovered
two boxes of. shaving
razors that the -suspect
allegedly dropped while
fleeing. ,
At press time, police per-
sonnel were waiting to
view video surveillance
from the store.
The man is described as
a white male, 35-40 years
of age, approximately 5-
feet 7-inches tall and 170-
180 pounds, wearing a
blue shirt and blue jean
shorts.

Amaryllis, impatiens add color to winter


One of the most
sought-after novelty
plant items is the
amaryllis bulb. These
colorful plants are very easy
to grow and bloom with
very little effort.
They can be grown inside
or out and are a staple at
most retailers during the
holiday season.
These colorful plants
originated in South Ameri-
ca's tropical climate. The
botanical name for it is
hippeastrum.
Because of the large,
colorful flowers that the
plants produce, this bulb is
in large demand worldwide
during the winter.
These gorgeous plants
come in a wide variety of
colors: red, white, pink,
salmon and orange. You can
also find many varieties that
have variegated flowers
with an array of colors in a
single bloom. These bulbs
will be available at many
retailers in the coming
weeks.
Amaryllis bulbs can be
purchased in bulk packages
as well as in kits where all
you have to do is unpack
the kit and water the soil.
If you choose to plant
your own, first place the
roots and the base of the
bulb in lukewarm water for
a couple of hours. If you get
your bulbs and you are not
ready to plant them right


JOE ZELENAK
Garden Nook

away, store them in a cool
place, at about 40 to 50
degrees. The refrigerator is a
great place.
Amaryllis bulbs like to be
planted in a good quality
potting mix, such as Miracle
Gro. Plant the bulb up to the
neck area in the potting
mix. Be gentle with the
roots so you do not damage
them. Firmly pack the soil
around the bulb so it stays
securely in place.
The new bulbs will do
really well in a warm place
with bright light. The warm
temperatures really make
the bulb grow rapidly and
bloom in no time.
Water your new plant
quite sparingly when it is
first sprouting and gradually
increase the amount of
water the plant receives as it


grows. The blooms can last
for several weeks, and if you
plant the bulbs at two- or
three-week intervals, you
can ensure lots of color for
many weeks to come.
Amaryllis bulbs can be
trained to re-flower by
simply cutting off the spent
blooms. When you notice
the stem starting to wilt, cut
it back at the base of the
bulb, and the flowering
process will start again.

Impatiens add color,
to yards

When you walk into
almost any lawn and garden
center, impatiens will most
likely be the dominant
plant. You will find them in
all colors and sizes from a
small 4-inch pot all the way
up to 14-inch (or larger)
color bowls.
.Many stores also carry
six-packs and 24-packs. As a
rule of thumb, if you are
going to plant a garden with
impatiens, plant lots of
them. You will be well
rewarded with a garden to
be proud of.
During the holiday
season, impatiens can be
found in red and white
color varieties. They can
add real holiday flair to any
garden or holiday display.
Impatiens will do best if
planted in an area that does


not get full sun all day. If
you plan on putting in
impatiens just for the
winter, this won't be quite as
critical, as the plants will
endure more sun during the
winter than the spring and
summer.
You will want to use a
good quality potting soil,
such as Miracle Gro, and
plant them in an area that
has good drainage. If water'
stands too long or the soil
stays mucky, impatiens will
develop root rot. They do,
however, need to be kept
evenly moist. If you let an
impatiens plant dry out too,
much, the plant will wilt.
Even though the plant will
appear to recover when you
revive it with water, damage
hasbeen done. Repeated
bouts of drying out will
compromise the plant
quality dramatically over
time.
If you have a sprinkler
system, do not rely on it 100
percent for your flowers.
Always supplement your
watering regime with hand
watering.

Angels: God's heavenly messengers


The word "angel"
actually comes
from the Greek
word aggelos, meaning
"messenger."
The Hebrew word
mal'ak, has the same
meaning. Angels are
mentioned 108 times in
the Old Testament and
165 times in the New
Testament.
There is much informa-
tion available in scripture
to allow us to build a
foundation for our
knowledge of angelic
beings. The scripture
speaks about the creation
of angels. So, it is clear
that they have not always
existed.
The time of their
creation is not definitely
specified, but probably
occurred in connection
with the creation of the
heavens in Genesis 1:1.
God may have created
the angels immediately
after He created the ,
heavens and before He
created the earth.
How many angels are
there?
' Scriptures give no
definite figures, but the
Bible does say that the
number of angels is very
great.
Hebrews 12:22b talks
about thousands upon
thousands of angels in
joyful assembly.
It appears that all of the
angels were created at
one time, as angels are
not being added. Angels
are not subject to death;
therefore they do not
.decrease in number.
It seems reasonable to
conclude that there are at
"east as many spirit
,beings, or angels in
existence as the sum
total of all-human beings
in their entire history on
earth.
Hebrews 1:14 says,
"Angels are ministering
spirits sent to serve those
who will inherit salva-
tion."
Those who will "inherit
salvation" are people
who have accepted
Christ as their Savior and
Lord.
Angels do not have
physical bodies like
humans. Jesus declared
in Luke 24:39b, that "a


I'..

Religion columnist
spirit has not flesh and
bones.
Angels can, however,
take on the appearance
of men when the occa-
sion demands.
Hebrews 13:2 reminds
us not to forget to wel-
come strangers. By doing
so, some people have
welcomed angels without
even knowing it.
On the other hand,
their appearance is
sometimes in dazzling
white and blazing glory.
Matthew 28:3 speaks of
an angel like this; "His
appearance was like
lightning, and his clothes
were white as snow."
The Bible does make it
clear that angels can only
be in one place at a time.
In 2 Kings 6:17, Elisha
once prayed that his
servant would see the
armies of angels that
were surrounding the
city. Elisha's'servant
discovered that he had
overlooked a lot of
invisible beings. He
looked and saw the hills
full of horses and chari-
ots of fire.
With the possible
exception of one Bible
verse, angels always
appear as males rather
than females.
Zechariah 5:9: "Then I
looked up and there
before me were two
women, with the wind in
their wings."
These two women were
supernatural beings,
apparently angels. "Wind
in their wings" is an
interesting phrase
because God used wind
as his instrument.
Psalm 104:3b-4
explains that God "rides
on the wings of the wind
and makes the winds his


messengers."
Sometimes an angel
appears to be a man with
unusual features. In
Daniel 10:5-6, Daniel saw
an angel with arms and
legs resembling polished
metal and precious
stones, and a face like
lightning.
Angels in the Bible
never appear as cute,
chubby infants. They are
always full-grown adults.
When people in the
Bible saw an angel, they
fell on their faces in fear
and awe.
Some Bible passages
picture angels with
wings. Other verses talk
about angels flying. We
may assume that the
wings might be necessary
for flight.
However, I suspect that
angels move around
freely, without having to
depend on wings.
May God's angels
surround you, and bring
you his protection,
messages and healing,
and keep you safe always.

SHELLEY KOPPEL
Treasure Coast Scene


Barn


offers


holiday
show

There'll be a "Potpourri
of Christmas" at the
Barn Theatre this
holiday season.
The show, which runs
from Dec. 13-16, was
written and directed by
Stuart resident Adele
Carraher,; and combines
music, dancing, mono-
logues and short skits.
For the first time, Ms.
Carraher has also incorpo-
rated children in the .show.
"They're doing a produc-
tion number of "Jingle Bell
Rock" in the 1950s style, Ms..
Carraher said. "They're
doing a great job."
Among the comic scenes
is a skit the director found
on the Internet called
"Christmas at the Bethle-
hem Fawlty," that is a spoof
of the popular John Cleese
comedy, "Fawlty Towers,
and a poem she came
across called "The Night
before Christmas in Flori-
da."
There is also a touching
tribute to the troops to
remind us all that everyone
can't be home for Christ-
mas.
During the intermission,
Santa Claus will mingle with
the audience; there'll be
cookies and punch, and
even a sing-along.
The 74-year-old Ms.
Carraher, who moved to
Florida from Michigan in
1999, is not performing in
the show, although her
voice will be heard.
As the audience leaves, a
recording of her singing her
original composition, "A
Potpourri of Christmas,"
will play. She doesn't mind
at all that she isn't on stage.
I "It's time for younger
people to get their due," she
said. "I enjoy directing. It's a
lot more work than being in
it."
Ms. Carraher is pleased
that tickets for the show are
priced so that entire
families can come to the
show. Tickets are $15 for
adults and $5 for students
and children. For groups of
10 or more, tickets are $10.
If you need to get into the
Christmas spirit, or need a
break from the holiday
madness, take a trip to the

Steve Solomon

finds fun in family


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Steve Solomon was a
high school physics
teacher and school admin-
istrator when he decided
to shift gears and become
a comedian.
He debuted his one-man
show, "My Mother's Ital-
ian, My Father's Jewish,
and I'm in Therapy" at the
Lyric Theatre and per-
formed it again last year
just prior to taking the
show to New York.
On Dec. 21, he brings
the show to the Sunrise
Theatre for the first time;
he spoke recently by
phone about the busy year
he's had.
"It's been astounding,"
he said. "It was supposed
to be a 12-week run in New
York, and we just celebrat-
ed one year. I left the show
in May, and actor Paul
Kreppel is doing a wonder-
ful job. I do 31 different
characters and the sound
effects and I trained him
and yelled at him and he
learned it beautifully."
For those who are not
familiar with 'Mr.
Solomon's theories of rela-
tivity, his show is about
relationships.
"It's about everyone in
the world whose sole pur-
pose was to drive me into
therapy," he said. "It's
about family, the police,
airport security, doctors,


best friends, and neigh-
bors. Everybody walks out
identifying with someone.
They'll tell me, 'I have an
aunt, I have an uncle...' I
impersonate 'My Sister,
the Smoker," so well that
my family thinks it's her. I
was nervous, when she
came to see the show and
I'm doing her coughing
and wheezing that she'd be
insulted, but. she said, "At
least you made me
famous'."
The road to New York
began when comedian Pat
Cooper told Mr. Solomon
to take his act to Florida.
"I did well, but I wasn't
making money," he said. "I
was just another comic. I
knew I needed a show, and
came up with the title. My
agent brought it to the
William Morris agency and
they loved the idea and
booked $150,000 in ticket
sales with only a title. My
agent sent me to work on a
cruise ship for ten months.
I'd do two stand-up per-
formances a night; then
you're stuck on the middle
of the sea and I wrote the
show. We tried it out at the
Lyric and John Loesser
said it would work in New
York. We were very scared.
We had to raise millions
and put everyone's money
at risk. I never would have
believed that the show
would last this long. The
tourists love it. It's very
Middle America."
Leaving the show in

capable hands gave Mr.
Solomon the chance to
debut a new show, "My Sis-
ter's an Only Child: the
Chaos Continues," which
he performed at the Kravis
Center and in Atlantic City
and in his return to stand-
up. He's also training other
performers for touring
companies of "My Moth-
er's Italian... "
"It's a wonderful mix," he
said. "Sometimes I have


three 90-minute shows in
my head at one time. I can
forget which show I'm in."

Jamaican eatery

beats the odds


'BY SAMANTHA JOSEPH
Staff writer
FORT PIERCE Fort
Pierce restaurateur Diana
Bennett is breathing a lit-
tle easier these days.
Ms. Bennettt has seen
more than a dozen local
restaurants shut their
doors since she opened
Country Style Jamaican
Cuisine in 2004 in a stand-
alone building on U.S. 1.
"I stopped counting at
15," she said, as she served
up a bowl of glazed carrots
with a hint of cinnamon.
But as she exits the
"belly up period," the first
36 months that restaurant
owners say determine
whether a business thrives
or flops, Ms. Bennettt
credits her faith, loyal staff
and recipes from her birth
country in the Caribbean.
"The key has been to
distinguish what's authen-
tic from what's not," she
said.
And at Country Style
Jamaican Cuisine, Ms.
Bennettt. balances the
right textures and flavors
to suit the palette of her
varied client base half of
which are non-Caribbean
to offer a taste of the
islands.
The T-bone steak,, for
instance, is grilled in a


sauce of Red Stripe, the
most popular Jamaican
beer, or served with fresh-
ground peppercorn. The
jerk pork, which is smoked
on an open fire, is served
hot and spicy or sweet and
sour.
"Being Jamaican, I know
exactly what it's supposed
to taste like," Ms. Bennett
said.
She is especially proud
of the jerk chicken, a cus-
tomer favorite, probably
because the aroma is the
first thing that greets din-
ers.
"That's a real Jamaican
dish for you," she said.
And it's this authenticity
that accounts for the
steady stream of diners,
The vast majority of busi-
ness about 95% of the
restaurant's clients -
comes from word-of-
mouth referrals, Ms. Ben-
nettt said.
Last month, for instance,
the restaurant hosted a
group of 32 diners from a
local church. About 20 of
them were first-time visi-
tors.
"Loyalty, most of all, and
our commitment to our
customers I think that's
what makes a difference,"
she said.

Jazz artists Rick Braun,
Peter White and Mindi
Abair combine talents for
their annual performance
of holiday music at the
Lyric Theatre Thursday,
Dec. 13.














Mitch Kloorfain
chief photographer


Mindi Abair makes joyful music


for a Peter White Christmas


Superalsre


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer


Saxophonist Mindi Abair
loves performing Christmas
music with guitarist Peter
White and trumpeter Rick
Braun so much that coming
together for the holidays has
become a regular gig.
Mr. White, the ringleader,
has assembled the group
again, and they will bring "A
Peter White Christmas" to
the Lyric Theatre on Dec. 13.
In a recent phone inter-
view, Mindi Abair spoke
about what she loves about
Christmas and about her
own busy career.
A Florida native, who
played back up for the Back-
street Boys, Mandy Moore,
John Tesh and Adam San-
dler, Ms. Abair hasn't spent a
lot of time in her home state
lately.
"I've been on the road
with my band," she said. "It's
great to go out and play in
front of people. In the
meantime, I've also been
recording a Christmas CD
with Peter and Rick. We.
started in July, during a point
in LA. when it was literally
over 100 degrees every day.
We were all touring (sepa-
rately), and we'd try to ren-
dezvous. That was fun. I've
also been in the studio work-
ing on my newest CD, com-
ing out in April 2008. I've
been writing songs, coming
up with what I feel is the
right sound."
"I've -written about 30
songs, but it's not about writ-.
ing 10 songs, it's about writ-
ing 10 songs I really like, that
match, and are not carbon
copies but have a common
thread," said Ms. Abair. "You
have to get in and delve into
the mind and soul."
The self-described "Christ-
mas geek" says that the group
counts coming to the Lyric
each year as a high point.
"We absolutely love it
there," she said. "I love Stu-
art. I walk around town and
love the little shops. I stop at
the chocolate shops and the
gift stores. We all love it
there."
"We've crafted this show
over four or five years, Ms
Abair said. "Each year we


add, although we keep it
mostly the same. It's a
Christmas show, and it's fun
to do it every year. People
have made it part of their
Christmas. We're like Christ-
mas carolers in every city;
we just take longer bus rides
in between. People bring us
cookies and brownies, and I
think we've hit the jackpot
here." I
Ms. Abair came out of the
prestigious Berklee College
of Music wanting to be a
solo artist and spent a lot of
time playing backup for
other performers. Getting a
taste of a variety of styles
has helped shape who she is
as an artist.
"You take the things you
learned delving into other
music and find what's you
and what's not you," she
said. "Finding yourself takes
so much time. But that's
what makes you an artist."
Just in case she gets car-
ried away with success, she
remembers the lesson
Adam Sandier taught her.
"I learned not to take
myself too seriously,". she


said.
"A Peter White Christ-
mas;" featuring Rick Braun
and Peter White, comes 'to
the Lyric Theatre, 59 S.W.
Flagler Ave., in Stuart, on


Dec. 13 for shows at 6 and
8:30 p.m. Tickets are $42
and $38. Call the box office

S' olumn.

cut some off the bottom
before putting it in a
stand. Even though some
was cut when it was
*" purchased, it probably has
sealed up with sap.
3 For the first watering,
use lukewarm water, to
which you've added one
aspirin for a tree up to 7
feet. Use two aspirins for a
larger tree. Add cold water
once or twice a day
thereafter. If the water is
gone the trunk will seal
and the tree will stop
drinking and die.
S Now that I've shared
how I take care of the tree,
I'd like to share how I
handled the "I wants" that
go on and on with children
at Christmas. I explained
to them that many chil-
dren throughout the world
didn't have anything. So,
moms and dads who could
sent Santa money fbr the
toys their children wanted.
W Then Santa could give
presents to the poor
children who had nothing.
Now you can negotiate,
choices can be made and
there will be no disap-
pointments, since they
know how much money
S you can afford to send
-*.3 Santa.
Makes sense, doesn't it?
Y Common sense tells us


that Santa doesn't have
time to set up a tree and
he certainly doesn't have
time to wrap gifts, espe-
cially in the same paper
your children saw you buy.
Being Italian, we cele-
brate Christmas Eve and
Christmas day. How else
can we become martyrs?
Gifts are exchanged on
Christmas Eve, both with
family members and the
children. Presents to be
exchanged are wrapped
and placed under the tree.
Since Santa hasn't come
yet, nobody knows what
he will bring.
Try my way. It worked
for us through four kids
and they believed a lot
longer than most. By the
way, (God forgive me)
when my kids said their
friend's parents told them
(the facts) I told my kids
they (the parents) were
liars. Now that I have
confessed my sin, let's get
to the recipes.
Today we'll cover two
delicious cookie recipes.
You can mix up most of
the batters now and freeze
them: Then, when baking
time is here, you'll see how
easy will your life be. Be
aware that when I recom-
mend Smart Balance
butter substitute,.which
works great in place of
butter or margarine. I am
not talking about the
"light" version; it is too
soft and will not work.
Also, remember to preheat
the oven for 20 minutes.

Eatery
From page B4
'Two employees in par-
ticular have been especial-
ly loyal. Head cook Betsey
Hill-Suqie has worked at
the restaurant since before
its official opening. She
and server Matt Phinn
have both voluntarily
worked long hours when
the restaurant couldn't
afford to hire other staff,
Ms. Bennett said. "I have
to give them all the credit,"
she said.
Her strong spirituality
also made a difference dur-
ing the growing pains, she
said. "You have to have a
lot of faith. You can not go
on your own on a daily
basis."
Together with her staff,
Ms. Bennettt serves an
average of five to eight
first-time customers each
day.
Because many of the din-
ers are new to menu items,
such as roti or Indian-style
bread, Ms. Bennettt is pas-
sionate about discussing
Jamaican cuisine. .
A chart of exotic tropical
fruit hangs in the dining
room, displaying some of
the ingredients used in the
meals.
Among them is ackee,
the key ingredient in a tra-
ditional Jamaican break-
fast, typically saut6ed with
codfish, and breadfruit,
served roasted.
Also featured are a broad
selection of vegetarian
choices a rare sight at
many' Caribbean eateries,
where meat dishes often
dominate menus.
Country Style Jamaican
Cuisine's "meatless tasties"
include steamed calaloo, a
spinach-like vegetable
saut6ed in garlic, onions
and tomatoes.


And diners can elect to
have veggie chunks cur-
ried, sweet and sour,
brown-stewed or run-
down style, with coconut
milk, There's also a daily
chef's veggie special.
On a recent Tuesday, the
soup of the day was split
pea, rich and hearty, with
pumpkin and chunks of
fresh vegetables, including
carrots and potatoes. The
featured dessert is a rich
bread pudding with a
warm bourbon sauce.
"Oh my goodness," one
diner sighs as she tastes
the sweet. "That's deli-
cious."
Couple the food with the
soft reggae music playing
in the [background, and
Fort Pierce diners don't
have to travel far to experi-
ence the island.
Birds-of-paradise flow-
ers, tropical prints, pastels,
wood sculptures, a tank of
tropical fish, palm trees
and bamboo d6cor help
create the ambiance. The
overhead fans have a finish
like woven straw, and
smooth river stones fill
small centerpieces.
It's a mix of down-home,
casual island style and a
slightly dressed-up atmos-
phere. Merlot seems just as
at home on the bar menu
as the "reggae mango
juice" and sorrel, made
from the.petals of a hibis-
cus. plant steeped with gin-
ger.
"I didn't want to be too
formal," Ms. Bennett said.
"I want people to feel com-
fortable."
It's the same attitude that
lets her and her staff move
seamlessly from private
parties for a Circuit Court
judge and world-class
boxer and special events at
the high-end John's Island
Country Club in Vero
Beach to small catering

jobs.
The business has seen its
share of adversity, she said,
but it's also come a long
way.
Two days after it opened,
hurricanes Frances and
Jean hit the area. Blown
away was the $7,000 Ms.
Bennettt spent on advertis-
ing and promoting her
business, as residents were
more preoccupied with
rebuilding after the natural
disasters, than dining out.
Even when she chose the
site at 3222 South U.S. 1,
friends warned her about
the spot, which had had
high turnover.
"If you had seen inside
here, it was like a cave," she
said. "It was the ugliest
thing I'd ever seen."
But Ms. Bennettt was
unfazed. It was the same
story she'd heard when she
and her mother, Ethel
Stewart, opened their first
venture in Queen's Village,
N.Y., 16 years ago. Today,
that restaurant, also called
Country Style Jamaican
Cuisine, is a thriving busi-
ness with two spin-off
locations.
"A restaurant is your
pride," she said. "It reflects
you."
The restaurant features a
private dining room for
business meetings, lunch-
eons, prayer, breakfasts or
groups that want privacy. It
has a 110-person seating
capacity.
Country Style Jamaican
Cuisine is open from 11
a.m. to 9 p.m. on Mondays
to Thursday and 11 a.m. to
10 p.m. oh Fridays. On Sat-
urdays the restaurant opens
at 8:30 a.m. to serve a tradi-
tional Jamaican breakfast.
It closes its doors at 9 p.m.

T lis week I thought
I'd write about a
topic that makes
people almost as nervous
as viruses.
I'm sure everyone
reading this has at one
time or another heard
about "cookies" and how
they let people on the
Internet watch your every
move.
I want to dismantle
some of these fears and
shed some light on the,
computer's infamous
cookie jar.
Contrary to common
belief, there's not a bunch
of caffeine-crazed hackers
out there sitting up late at
night, following trails of
cookies and monitoring
where people go online.
Frankly, who cares?Why
would someone want to
follow my progress as I
casually wander through
cyberspace?
Not understanding just
what cookies are just gives
them a big-brotherish air
of mystery.
Cookies are files that are
left on a surfer's hard drive
that allows aWeb site keep
track of information
about that user. This is a
method that some Web-
developers use so people
don't have to keep
entering the same
information every time
they hit that page.
For instance, let's say
you go to aWeb site that
will give you the weather
in 12 different locations
and show you its effect on
12 different stocks (believe
me, there are stranger
sites out there). When you
go to this site, you have to
enter in the 12 locations
that you want the weather
from and then enter in the
12 stock symbols that you
want to track. You would
have to re-enter all 24
items every time you visit
the site. This can get kind
of tedious and, since no
.one likes tedious, Web
developers invented
cookies.
Now, let's suppose the
site we just went to used
cookies. The first time you
visit, you entered a user
name and password, then
your 12 weather locations
and the 12 stocks you
want to monitor. TheWeb
site adds a line to a file on
your computer called,


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This

"cookies.txt." All ofyour
preferences for this Web site
are stored in this cookie, so
every time you visit that site,
the data from the cookie is
used.
Bingo. All of your weather
choices and stock symbols
load automatically every .
time you visit the site.
With that brief explanation
of cookies, you can see that
cookies are not this big
menace to Internet privacy,
but actually a tool that makes
surfing the Internet easier
and less frustrating.
Still not convinced?
There are a couple things
you can do to lessen your
exposure to cookies, if you
feel that strongly about them.
The first, and I guess
easiest thing you can do is go
into yourWeb browser's
settings and turn on the
"warn before accepting
cookie" option.


Turning this on will force
your browser to ask you if
you want to accept a cookie
every time one is encoun-
tered and give you a yes or no
choice.
Another thing you can do
is click "start," then "search"
then click "all files or folders"
and enter "cookies" in the
little "all or part of a file
name" window. Make sure
"all hard drives"is in the
"look in" window and then
click the "search" button.
Windows will search your
computer for your cookies
folder. It should find a
cookies folder on your hard
drive in "documents and
settings\your Windows user
name."
Double click the folder to
open it and you will see all the
differentWeb sites that have
left cookies on your machine.
'If you want to remove one,
just delete the line that has
the cookie you want gone. Or,
delete them all. Just remem-
ber, if you nuke all the cookies
on your machine, all those
sites that load what you want
automatically will have no
idea who you are and you'll
have to re-enter all that stuff
you entered the first time you
visited.
Well, that's cookies in a
nutshell. Until next week,
happy computing.

Port St. Lucie residents begin to celebrate the holiday season with a hayride through
Tradition Friday, Nov. 30. The annual event began with musical performances by the
Port St. Lucie Community Band, rides for kids and the lighting of the town square
Christmas tree.


Columnist wants readers to obtain


the greatest of all gifts for holidays


whatever we impress
Son our subcon-
V scious mind wants
to create roots and blessings
from the spirit world and
then begin to manifest the
physical reality of itself.
This lack of understand-
ing, belief or practice is the
basic reason so many live a
life of survival rather than
abundance.
Do you ever feel unloved,
angry, sick, fearful, guilty or
sad? If you do, you are just
one of millions who have
become so caught up in the
outer, mental, fearful
worldly side of life and are
struggling just to make
ends meet.
If I could give you one gift
during the holidays that
would ease the suffering
and stress and make your
life easier, here is what it
would be: that-you turn
away from the outer world
a little and begin to go
inside, listen to and follow
your heart and inner
guidance.
Get connected to the
source, the universe within,
and allow this awesome
power to work for and
through you. This is a
learned process and takes
practice to master, just like
any other skill. It is not
some magic formula
reserved only for the elite
or powerful. It can be
learned and applied to
every area o life when you
have the desire for a better
way of life. The process
starts with a few basic
steps.
First, we have to release
the past and clear it of
accumulated negativity
and garbage to make room
for new positive growth.
Learn from the past instead
of judging it or others and
thank it for the lessons.
Gratitude goes a long way
in spirit. Give thanks each
day for the blessing of life
itself and all you have now,
no matter how much or
little it may be.
Second, we must feel
worthy of having abun-
dance or we push it away.
Feeling poor but proud
doesn't cut it anymore.
Third is to make a friend
of the divine power instead
of living in awe or fear of it.
A personal relationship
with spirit starts with
gratitude, but grows when
we begin to ask for inner
guidance and begin to trust
and develop faith in it.
In order tQ do this, we
have to surrender the ego
and lower will and ask for
the higher power to give us
spiritual guidance. Making
this transition is where
most of us have the hardest
time. Our minds want to
control everything. Living
by the lower nature is what
causes war, divorce, crime,
sickness, poverty and


depression.
The fourth step is to write
down your visions and
. inspirations when they
come. The messages
coming from the universe
are our greatest source of
truth. Writing them down is
the same as grounding a
seed in a garden.
Fifth, speak the desire
out loud. Send it back to
your new friend. Thank the
spirit for sending it this
great gift to you. The way
we know it is truth is in the
inspiration and happiness
we feel.
Then ask daily, through
prayer or affirmation, that
you be shown signs that the
divinely-inspired message
has been blessed, is taking
root and beginning to grow
outwardly and manifest the
created form. Just because
you don't see the physical-
form in the outer side
doesn't mean that some-
thing isn't happening in the
energy field of spirit. This is
where surrender, patience,
trust and faith come into
play.
By this time, you should
be seeing a change and
growth in the idea you want

YOUTH ACTIVITIES & SPORTS


Centennial High School
goalie Laura Alarcon
helped add another notch
in the teams record as she
and goalie Lauren Walsh
kept Sebastian River High
School from scoring during
a game Monday, Dec. 3, at
,, ,South County Stadium. The
Eagleswon, 4-0, improving
L.their record to 10-1-1.

Area goalies have zeros in common


BY TOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer


When Laura Alarcon is in
goal, one thought is running
through her head.
"I have to stop the shot,"
Alarcon said.
Similarly, goalkeeper
Danny Houston focuses on
the positive.
"You have to have confi-
dence back there," Houston
said. "You have to tell your-
self you're going to stop the
ball.
"If you're negative, it'll get
byyou."
While Alarcon minds the
nets for St. Lucie West Cen-
tennial and Houston does
the same for Jensen Beach,
both players have had
something in common
beyond their desires to suc-
ceed.
Nothing.
That is exactly what the
duo has allowed the opposi-
tion for most of the young
season. After eking out a 4-3
win over Seminole Ridge in
the season opener, St. Lucie
West Centennial has been
virtually unstoppable and
Alarcon is one of the big rea-
sons why. She has displayed
tremendous poise in goal, as
evidenced by earning her
eighth shutout of the season
in the Eagles' 13-0 win over
Palm Beach Lakes on Nov.
26.
The victory boosted Cen-
tennial's record to 9-0-1 on
the season its best start
since the program began in
1998.
"She's a good goalie," Cen-
tennial head coach Doug
Black said. "She's a. solid
keeper.
"She's great down low and
has made a couple of really
nice saves to keep us unde-
feated."
. Similarly, Houston' has
made the most of his senior
season.. Playing against a
tough Sebastian River team
on Nov. 20, the 17-year-old
recorded his fifth shutout, as
the Falcons stayed unde-
feated at 5-0.
"He's a very talented indi-
vidual," Jensen Beach head
coach Charles Rosseau said.
"He's been a four-year varsi-
ty member, but he was in
the shadow of (former
goalie) Alan Eckler.
"He has great reaction
time. He'll be our No. 1
man."
While being at the fore-
front is relatively new for
Houston, Alarcon has
thrived in the spotlight for
most of her soccer career.
The 17-year-old began her


love affair with the .sport
when she was 9, first playing
the position of defender. She
switched to goalkeeper two
years later and hasn't looked
back.
"I love playing goalie,"
Alarcon said. "I like having a
lot of pressure where every-
thing is depending on you.
"Someone is coming one-
on-one on the goalie. I like
that."
Alarcon starred in net for
three seasons with St. Fran-


cis prep and also has a stint
with the Albertson-Milan
Fury club team to her credit.
It was with the Fury that
Alarcon developed her pen-
chant for shutouts, having
recorded 15 of them last sea-
son in helping the team to a
quarterfinalist finish in the
state cup.
"I used to train three times
a week in New York," Alar-
con said. "It was very hard
and there was a lot of pres-
sure."

Goalies
From page B13


next season. Houston was
happy with his role on those
teams, but was eagerly
awaiting his opportunity to
spend more time on the
field.
"I loved it but I wanted to
be playing more," Houston
said. I kept preparing for
senior season.
"I've been training one-on-
one for two years with a guy
who used to be a goalkeeper.
It's been pretty good."
While both goalies are
satisfied with their per-
formances so far, each
knows they couldn't do it
alone.
"I feel very comfortable
back there," Houston said.
"Our team is very strong.
Our defense is very solid."
The same can be said for
Centennial.
"My defenders are awe-
some," Alarcon said. "Our
defenders are good at pre-
venting shots.
"We connect as a team.
When I transferred, it was
very hard in the beginning. I
was very nervous.
"When I.had my first try-
out, the girls were very cool.
I adapted quickly. Now it
feels like I'm at home."
St. Lucie West has also
benefited from having
another goalie to turn to as
well, Lauren Walsh. The jun-
ior earned her first shutout
in goal on Nov. 20, as Cen-
tennial pounded area rival
Fort Pierce Central 8-0.
"She's a very talented
goalkeeper," Black said.
"She's a great weapon.
"She can punt a ball close


to 50 or 60 yards. Both
(Walsh and Alarcon) bring
something positive. They
both have great qualities."
While Walsh longs for
more playing time, she is
happy to be part of a win-
ning team.
"It's hard for me, but she's
(Alarcon) also a very good
keeper," Walsh said. "We get
along very well.
"It's really rewarding for
the whole team. We're really
pumped about it. We're not
used to the recognition
thing."
While the season is long
from being over, both
coaches are happy with
what they've seen so far.
"They (the team) has put
themselves in a position to
be successful," Rosseau
said. "I definitely tell the
boys that I want a clean
sheet. The last 20 minutes is
no time to slack off.
"Finish the game and
buckle down harder to be
able to put a team away.
"I have been impressed to
some degree that when we
do have a lead I've been able
to get other players some
time and the second
stringers are still holding
their weight."
Black is impressed every
time his team takes the field.
"We're playing some good
soccer," Black said. "The
girls are proud of them-
selves. I've never really paid
attention to shutouts in a
row, but nine is pretty good.
"The shutout streak is
nice. I think we can get a few
more this year."
