Local governments force run on state funds


Oversight board restructures fund
to restore investor confidence


By DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
St. Lucie County School
District Assistant Superinten-
dent Tim Bargeron wanted to
,do the right thing for the state,
but opted instead to do right
by the taxpayers of St. Lucie
County.
Mr. Bargeron, who over-
sees the school budget,
began to hear rumblings that
the state-run Local Govern-
ment Investment Pool, in
which he had been investing,
might be in danger of default.


County

takes up

wind

turbines

BY RITA HART
Staff writer
ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
The fate of Florida Power
and Light's bid to install
wind turbines in St.
Lucie County is still up
in the air.
Some residents want
nothing to do with the
400-foot tall structures
on Hutchinson Island.
Others feel it was a good
step toward environ-
mental consciousness..
And many want to learn
more before making up
their minds.
No matter the category
they fell into, the group
was. taking advantage of
buses offered by St.
Lucie County to tour the
sites where FPL wants to
install wind turbines
expected to supply
power to 2,800 homes.
The three buses were
full. In addition to resi-
dents from all over the
Treasure Coast and offi-
cials of FPL, they trans-
ported three members of
the Board of County
Commissioners; Chris
Craft, Doug Coward and
Sarah Heard. County
administrator Doug
Anderson was also on
board.

Pierce and Lee Mitchell
of Port St. Lucie were

Bargeron said he'd been
concerned about the invest-
ment pool since a Nov, 13
conference call with the State
Board of Administration, dur-
ing which he discovered that
some of the fund's securities
had been downgraded.
He said he wanted to be a
"good Floridian" and riot con-
tribute to a run on the fund,
so he only pulled out $12 mil-
lion, a fraction of the school
board's investment. Two
weeks later, however,
Bloomberg Financial News
Service reported that the


securities had defaulted and
were not simply downgraded,
as he said he'd been told. On
Nov. 28, he pulled out $52
million more.
"At that point, I decided
that being a good Floridian
was one thing, but I needed
to be responsible," Mr. Barg-
eron explained. "I had mixed
feelings, but I didn't want to
leave any school district
funds at risk."
The state's governmental
entities have traditionally
preferred the Local Govern-
ment Investment Pool
because it provided liquidity
and earned more interest
than treasury bills.
That's now changed for Mr.

purchasing treasury bonds

Arrests

may solve

115 auto

break-ins

BY RITA HART
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE -
Three men who took full
advantage of ample
opportunity were finally
nabbed and connected to
at least 115 car burglaries
in Port St. Lucie.
Police were alerted by
several of the victims on
Dec. 6 and when their
investigation was com-
plete, three suspects were
under arrest.
Several homeowners in
central Port St. Lucie dis-
covered break-ins to their
cars at about the same
time the morning of Dec.
6.
As police responded,
they received a call about
a suspicious vehicle in the
area.
Officers Gary Grenier
and William Winn located
the vehicle, a tan Chevy
parked in the 300 block of
Southeast Starfish Ave.
As the officers
approached the car, they
spotted two men inside
and a third coming out of
nearby woods, carrying a
woman's wallet, sunglass-
es and a CD case.
"There was also a strong
scent of marijuana," said
Officer Grenier at a news
conference later in the
day.

Some of the Cadets for Vets participants loading supplies to be sent to the troops in
Iraq the first week in January. The cadets worked with the Air Force Sergeants Associa-
tion Auxiliary in the offices of Paul Hiott, director of St. Lucie County Veterans Services.
Pictured are Randy Aubin (center) and Wayne Frangiosa. In the back are Marcos
Rodriguez (left) and David Pooler.


A local group wants to
make sure the community
remembers its soldiers
who are spending the holi-
days away from family and
friends.
Cadets for Vets, a com-
munity service program
that is part of Victory
Forge Military Academy in
Port St. Lucie, is collecting
supplies from residents of
St. Lucie and Martin coun-
ties to send to troops sta-
tioned in Iraq.
The military academy is
a non-profit organization
that partners with local
veterans associations.
Their mission is to give
back to the community


and to those who have
served in the military.
The group has already
begun its work, collecting
supplies from people
attending the RiverWalk
Jazz Holiday Festival in
downtown Stuart on Dec.
2.
"The response was phe-
nomenal," said Col. Alan
Weierman of the Victory
Forge Military Academy.
"We had a huge Humvee
filled with supplies, and
we raised another $11,000
in cash as well," he said.
The Cadets for Vets will
be accepting donations
through the month of
December, and expect to
ship the first packages to
soldiers in Iraq the first'

A DENTAL CHECKUP CAN BE A LIFESAVER
Q: Why is a dental checkup important for overall health considerations?
A: When your dentist checks the inside of your mouth, she may see things
that are early signs of other problems. For instance, inflamed gums, oral
infections and an abundance of cavities can be signs of heart disease. tooth a
erosion, as another example, can indicate an acid reflux problem, or bulimia.
A burning sensation or sour taste in the mouth can also be symptoms of acid K'
reflux. ,i
Type-2 diabetes can first manifest itself with bright red, bleeding gums and foul breath. O
Gum trouble and wounds that won't heal can also be an indication of leukemia. an
ammonia smell in the mouth can be a sign of kidney disease. and tooth loss can be an
indication of osteoporosis, a thinning of bones, or some other bone condition. Most
importantly, a regular dental visit could turn up something as serious as cancer in the
mouth. So your smile is not the only concern when your dentist examines your mouth. See
your dentist at least twice a year.

Ann Romney
makes Treasure
Coast campaign
stop for husband

BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
VERO BEACH As her
husband, Mitt Romney,
seeks the Republican pres-
idential nomination, Ann
Romney knows what kind
of first lady she wants to
be.
For Mrs. Romney, 58,
one former first lady car-
ries special significance:
Abigail Adams, who forged
a partnership with her
husband, John Adams, the


second president.
"I believe Mitt and I have
a very similar partner-
ship," Mrs. Romney said
Monday during a cam-
paign stop here. She called
her husband of 38 years
"the most qualified, the
smartest and the best
looking" among the crop
of presidential contenders.
That partnership has
afforded her a large role in
the Romney campaign,
complete with solo trips to
early voting states and her
own campaign Web site,
which includes recipes,
family photos and details
about her battle with mul-
tiple sclerosis.
Four days before her
Vero Beach visit, Mrs.
Romney joined her hus-
band in Texas when he
sought to assuage fears
about their Mormon faith.
"We're tolerant of the
symphony of faiths," she
said, echoing her hus-
band's speech. "We're not
only going to elect a presi-
dent if he's of a certain
faith. That's the absolute
opposite of what our coun-
try was founded on."
The speech, reminiscent


John F Kennedy gave in
1960 about' his Catholi-
cism, will continue to res-
onate, Mrs. Romney said.
"No matter what hap-

pens to Mitt, I think that
speech was significant,
and what he said was so
significant," she said.
Her fundraising stop at
Quail Valley River Club was
a chance for Mrs. Romney
to talk up her husband as a
successful venture capital-
ist and governor.
"Mitt has had 'so many
situations in his life where
he's been able to turn
around failing companies
and really understand the
economics of what makes
something work," she said.
Mostly, though, Mrs.
Romney talked about her
husband as a father and
grandfather, who, once
Sunday dinner has been
cleared, shoos his wife
from the kitchen so he and
his five grown sons can do
the dishes.
"He lives for the family,"
Mrs. Romney said. "That is
his source of joy."
In 1998, around the time
her husband was tasked
with overhauling the 2002
Winter Olympics in Salt
Lake City, Utah, she was
diagnosed with multiple
sclerosis, an incurable
neurological disorder.
"I thought my life was
over," she recalled.
Depressed, frightened
and worried about being
confined to a wheelchair,
Mrs. Romney rebuilt her
strength with a combina-
tion of medications and
horseback riding. Though
it had been years since she
climbed into a saddle, she
wanted to make the most
of her health. Horseback
riding, a lifelong passion,
became her therapy.
"There is this energy that
a horse gives you," she
said.
With Floridians set to
cast ballots in the presi-
dential preference primary
Jan. 29, Mrs. Romney is the
latest member of her fami-
ly to campaign in Indian
River County.
Tagg Romney, her oldest
son, stumped for his father
in February, while son
Craig Romney drove the
"Mittmobile" bus to Vero
Beach in September.
"Florida is an important
state," Mrs'. Romney said,
adding: "I think this area
would be particularly
receptive to our message
of strong families,
strengthening the military
and having a strong econ-
omy."
After addressing about
60 supporters at Quail Val-
ley, Mrs. Romney was
bound for Des Moines,
Iowa, where the mercury
hovered at 19 degrees that
afternoon and the first-in-
the-nation caucuses were
less than three weeks
away.
Before she left for the
airport, Mrs. Romney
encouraged on-the-fence
Republicans to examine
her husband's record.
"You get the whole pack-
age," she said. "You get
everything."

RE VI EW

Bike Rodeo exceeds expectations
The. first Bike Rodeo, held at Superplay, USA in St.
Lticie.West on Dec. 9, was a success, according to Sgt.
Paul Grohowski of the Port St. Lucie Police Department.
"The turnout was unbelievable," said Sgt. Grohowski,
who organized the event. "Every kid that came out
signed a 'promise letter' to wear a helmet when they ride
their bikes. We gave out more than 600 helmets."
Sgt. Grohowski estimates that more than 1500 people
attended the event and began lining up in the parking lot
of Superplay at 4 a.m., although the event did not offi-
cially begin until 10 a.m.
"We will definitely do it again next year," said Sgt. Gro-
howski. "After we set everything up, I gave my guys a little
pep talk. I told them if we give out just one helmet that
saves a kid this year, the whole event is worthwhile."
Sgt. Grohowski said media attention prior to the event
resulted in businesses and organizations coming for-
ward to help.
"We ran out of toddler helmets, but with the money we
raised from businesses, homeowner associations and
other organizations, we are going to continuously buy
helmets," he said.
Woman charged with multiple crimes
against 81-year-old assisted-living resident
Rose Weinberg is legally blind, so when a friend who
was helping her with her bank statement realized Mrs.
Weinberg's money was disappearing, she suggested Mrs.
Weinberg go to the bank for help.
She did, and the ensuing investigation has now result-
ed in the arrest of Angela Laura Haber, 41, of the 2300
block of Southwest Antiquera Street on charges of
exploitation of the elderly, grand theft, fraudulent use of
credit cards and misuse of personal identification.
Ms. Haber is charged with stealing more than
$100,000, most of Mrs. Weinberg's life savings.
According to police, Ms. Haber obtained power of
attorney over Mrs. Weinberg and her husband, now
deceased, when the couple lived in Broward County and
Ms. Haber befriended the couple.
In addition to allegedly writing herself a check for
$50,000 from Mrs. Weinberg's account, Ms. Haber
reportedly took'lavish vacations and bought food, gas,
liquor and many other items with Mrs. Weinberg's credit
card over a two-year period.

Suggestions for the sup-
plies came from a Hobe
Sound soldier currently
stationed in Iraq.
"We talked with 2nd Lt.
Trevor Plummer, who is
stationed with the 3rd
-Infantry Division in Iraq,"
said Col. Weierman.
"He was home for
Thanksgiving, and we
went over the list of sup-
plies together," he said.
Col. Weierman said the
Cadets for Vets will also
accept notes from children
and adults, addressed to
soldiers in Iraq. The notes
will be sent with the
donated supplies.


"The cadets hope that
the entire Treasure Coast
community will get behind
them and donate items
from the list or make cash
contributions to offset the
costs of shipping," said
Col. Weierman.
During the month of
December, supplies or
cash donations may be

A concept that may trace it's roots to ancient Egypt has become one of our most
successful and most sought procedures ,


AESTHETIC *
INSTITUTE

IMPLANT TECHNOLOGY IS DRIVEN by
an almost overwhelming need for the
procedure. "Thirty three million people
in the USA have no teeth on one arch",
says Michael A. Sohl, DDS, a founding
member of the The Nile Aesthetic
Institute and Director of Implant and
Cosmetic Dentistry. "Dental implants
can make a profound difference in the life
of a denture wearer," he continued.


Michael A. Sohl, D.D.S.


The first implants may go back much further than we imagine.
Anthropologist working at the pyramids have discovered crude
implants in the jaws of Egyptian mummies. The Egyptians may have
been ahead of their time; however, Dr Sohl has taken implant dentistry
a few steps further...
We offer many solutions for frustrated denture wearers, including
the popular Nobel-Guide "Teeth in an Hour" and Teeth in a Day*
procedures. The iCat scanning technology allows us to perform
precise, minimally invasive, virtually painless implant placement.
People that have suffered with dentures or have lost teeth owe it to
themselves to understand the new hi tech solutions available. They will
be amazed at how quickly, and easily their lifestyles can be changed!

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


Drivers should pay attention
I'm sad to hear about children being run over. It is pathet-
ic that someone could say they hit a mailbox and that is the
reason he didn't stop.
Did he not look in his rear view mirror when he heard a
thud?
Is it not illegal to hit someone's mailbox?
Why would a person be driving so close to mailboxes any-
way? Can you see?
Not that some children aren't taught about staying off the
road when they are walking home or waiting for a bus. I
have seen a little boy walking on the road in a residential
neighborhood, but it was still a busy street, and he was
probably only five or six years old.
Regardless, it is still a responsibility of a good driver to be
paying attention to what's on the road. Daylight-saving
time does not help with this matter either.

Send in more rants
My rant is that the Rants & Raves section is almost gone.
Are people not writing in, or .have you cut way back on
the space given to the column?
I really looked forward to this section of your paper. Can't
we vent our opinion anymore, or are we just bottled up
until we explode?
Come on, people, express yourselves. Hopefully the
Hometown News hasn't cut back on the allotted space. -
The paper is less interesting to me as a result. Hopefully,
the column will get back to the way it was.
Editor's note: We welcome all submissions to Rants &
Raves that are on a specific topic or of general interest to
readers. All are invited to participate in this community
forum.

Relating to traffic laws rants

I love Hometown News because it gives people an outlet
to voice their opinions.
When I read, "Follow all traffic laws," I could completely
relate. There really needs to be a driver's school course that
makes you drive around with a DMV staff member for at
least a couple hours maybe on the weekend and maybe
even charge a fee for it.
Not just driving around in the parking lot for a few min-
utes and then handing over a license. Continually, I have
people who don't use their turn signals, cut people off, talk-
ing on their cell phones, crossing over three lanes in front of
traffic to get over to that turning lane, riding in passing
lanes, and even trying to speed up so that you can't pass.
When I spoke with an officer as to why people aren't ever
pulled over for these things all he could say is that 95 per-
cent of his tickets were for speeding. If this is one thing
people are getting penalized for why aren't the other law-
breakers getting penalized as well?

More on traffic rules

Kudos to whoever wrote, "Follow all traffic rules." I could-
n't have said it better myself. The part that sums it up best is
"driving is about courtesy and being predictable." The sad'
part is the author of "Obey the speed limit" wouldn't know a
common courtesy to his fellow man if it bit him in the face.
The whole world would be a nicer place if we were all
more courteous to each other, not only on the road, but
everywhere.

Documentary is informative

I wanted to let everyone know that there is a good docu-
mentary out there called "Sicko." It can be rented at Block-
buster or any video rental store. It is a film about health
insurance and.what they do to good people in the U.S.
Not only is it an eye-opening film, but also it is also very
sad to realize how some people are treated here in a country
that is supposed to be so great.

Medical technicians need more training
This is in response to the rant about medical technicians.
I wholeheartedly agree with you but you have given them

top quality title.
. Mostly, they are aides who receive a mere 40 hours of
training and are allowed to administer medication, take
blood pressure, draw blood, and perform all kinds of med-
ical and nursing procedures that only qualified nurses
should perform.
This can only happen in Florida because they dare not do
these things in other states. No wonder there are always out-
breaks of infections and other diseases that even the physi-
cians have a hard time diagnosing.
You see, these aides and assistants, whichever you want to
call them, use stethoscopes around their necks as a status
symbol. I'm sure they do not even know which end goes on
the patient's chest. This is what nursing has come to. What a
disaster.

Unfit mothers should not be driving

Some people are not made to be mothers. I was driving
side-by-side with this woman who had a baby in a car seat,
the wrong way in the back of the car. She was on a cell
phone, driving with her legs, and drinking a coke. She had
no regard for anybody on the road. I could not believe my
eyes. Where are the police?
This person could get into a car accident. What has hap-
pened to parents? Don't they have any brains?
I pity that poor child.

And these little piggies ...

In your latest paper, you have two little concrete piggies
return home. They didn't return home to Whispering Pines,
they returned to Whispering Pond. In Whispering Pond we
speak in English, in Whispering Palms you have to speak
Spanish.

Homosexual reality found in the numbers
A writer wrote about homosexual reality today.
Just what is it?
A 1969 survey found that more than 40 percent of white
homosexual males and one-third of black homosexual
males had at least 500 partners in their lifetime and an
additional one-fourth reported between 100 and 500
partners (Bell and Weinbrg, 1978).
There is further evidence of extensive homosexual
behavior in other reports (Jefferiss, 1965; Scott and Stone,
1966, Meriono and Richards, 1977 to name a few.)
In the HBO movie, "And the Band Played On," patient
Zero had more than 250 lifetime sex partners.
I do not believe there were heterosexual bath houses in
San Francisco. There were many gay bath houses. There are
two gay bath houses (that) opened in New York earlier this
year. Gay men go there for sex with many partners.
About eight years ago, the Discovery Channel (aired) a
program: "Aids In America." In it, they said one gay male
had (more than) 2,000 lifetime sex partners.
The CDC recently reported the number of lifetime sex
partners for heterosexual males averages about nine. They
do not keep figures on homosexual males. I wonder why.
I guess fhis is homosexual reality today.

Is the United States ready to fall?

Every great nation has had its rise and fall.
No other nation in the history of mankind has risen to the


greatness of our great nation. So, I wonder, if the fall of this
great nation will be a greater fall than we have ever seen.
Not many here in the United States seem greatly worried
about the fall of the U.S. dollar against the Euro.
Maybe it is no big deal? Maybe the talk of a currency
common with Canada, U.S., and Mexico is an idea to
counteract the descending value of the dollar in interna-
tional trade? Will it work or be a bigger problem?
Could the descending value of the dollar be a sign of this
falling empire?
People from other countries have said to me that the U.S.
cannot survive without war, that somehow War is an
economic necessity to the U.S. I can not see how war helps
any country. Some want to see a victory in this (Iraq) war.
Victory must mean stomping out all terrorists.
Besides the economics of war draining our country, I
strongly suspect that the U.S. oil companies are so greedy
for profits, that they are destroying our country, the basis
for their power and source of their profits.
At one time, oil helped build our country. Now, oil compa-
nies (are) out of control and are crippling our economy.
Yet, nobody in the government is brave enough to tackle
the problem. Could oil companies already be stronger than
the government?
Neither is any elected official on any level willing to tackle
illegal immigration. From what I read and hear, the people
want to see illegals removed, not given citizenship.
Who has taken the power from the people?
We see these major problems and solutions, but absolute-
ly no positive action.

Schools can't change children'
behavior, only parents can

In response to the writer of "Teachers should stop their
whining," the schools usually cannot change (children's)
behavior and attitudes, which they bring to the schools.
Behaviors and attitudes are instilled long before the
schools and teachers know your children. Sometimes, what
is modeled at home is not appropriate for the classroom, as
all of us witness regularly in the malls, restaurants, etc.
There is a difference between whining and observing the
facts. As a 33-year veteran teacher, (I'd say) about 70
percent of our students are wonderful, but placed in that
setting, the other 30 percent do not seem to be able to
understand common courtesy and acceptable behavior.
The result is obviously a serious problem. The minority are
interfering with the learning process of the majority. In this
day and age, I do not believe that the schools are guilty of
"red-flagging a kid as bad," however, whether a teacher or
non-teacher, most of us realize that usually the nut does
not fall far from the tree.

Pronunciation of years shouldn't be arbitrary

In consideration of the length of time it takes the Ameri-
can public to adjust their learning, I wonder if there is the
slightest possibility by 2010 that the nation could revert to
pronouncing the calendar year nomenclature as was done
for the last 19 centuries?
By that, we would refer to 2010 as just that, "twenty-ten,"
rather than continue the clumsily voiced method we are
currently employing since the turn of the present century;

Letters


Letter to the Editor:

In a recent news article, Port St. Lucie City Manager Don
Cooper was quoted as saying that every sewer customer in
the city would pay $354 a year for'20 years to defray the cost
of shutting down the Westport sewage plant and pumping
the waste to the Glades plant (or $299 yearly if both water
and sewer customers were assessed). The purpose of mak-
ing these cost figures known, of course, is to sway public
opinion to the side of the city; after all, who wants $354
added to their yearly utility bill?
However, did Mr. Cooper happen to mention how much


,the closing of the Northport plant and the pumping of its
waste to Glades is currently costing utility customers? Or did
Mr. Cooper mention how much it is costing utility customers
to shut down the Southport plant, pump its waste to West-
port (under the river), and turn around and pump the water
back (under the river again) so that Tesoro and city golf
courses can be watered? These cost figures were not men-
tioned; one wonders if that means these two initiatives have
no impact on utility customers? And that only the closing of
the Westport Sewage Plant impacts utility customers.
And did Mr. Cooper prorate those $354 and $299 cost fig-
ures he attributed to the shutting down of the Westport


sewage plant? These figures would also include the pump-
ing of Southport residents, waste to Glades, so how much of
,the costs cited by Mr. Cooper are attributed to the city's plan
to shut down Southport and pump its waste westward?
Perhaps the neighbors around the Westport sewage plant
aren't being so unreasonable after all when they request
having the same opportunity to odor-free air and the
sewage plant closed down just like their neighbors
around the Northport and Southport plants.

Rants
From page A6
i.e., that this is the year "two thousand 'n' seven" rather than
"twenty oh seven."
The main resource of this public education would have to
be radio/television, newspapers lacking vocalization
means.
Of course, what do I know; I was born in "one thousand
nine hundred and twenty seven." Just another antiquity.

One person's 'flyover' is
another person's 'overpass'

The gentle reader who is mystified by the term "flyover"
would be nonplussed by the term, "roundabout."
Both terms, of course, are quite civil in the United King-
dom where the one is an "overpass" and the other a "traffic
circle."

Two boys may have needed box of food

I just read (a rant about a woman who) saw somebody
with two little boys (who) picked up a box of Boy Scout
food.
I don't know why this lady would be fussing about that. I
can't see why these children should be denied food. I'm
sure that if they picked up this box of food, (they) must have
really needed it.
I think this was selfish of this lady fussing because (the)
food was supposed to be going to people that needed it
anyway.
I really think that these little boys really needed this food
or they wouldn't have picked.it up. I don't consider this
stealing whatsoever.

Support the troops with a united America

I am addressing the (person who wrote) "Best way to
support troops is to bring them home."
Somehow, the heart-felt plea got lost in political transla-
tion.
The author clearly expressed outlandish accusations that
our'president, vice president and big business have profited
from this war without a shred of evidence to back them up.
Such is the tactic of left-wing, secular progressives, political
motivation and manipulation is behind it all. I suppose if
lies are told often enough and no one refutes them, people
tend to believe and accept them rather than consider the
source from which they originate.
If I wanted to get political, I would point out that the U.S.
did not start this war. We were at war long before Sept. 11. I
would point out that the previous administration (Clinton,
for those with short memories) cut military spending,
forcing the cannibalization of parts from other military
equipment, leaving us weakened by un-preparedness.
I would point out that our president, at that time, failed to
protect our embassies and the USS Cole. I would also point
out that we have a Congress and Senate dominated by
politicians with mush for backbone who, for the past four
years, have sought appeasement with the enemy by trying
to deprive our military of much-needed support (monetari-
ly and morally).
Forcing a premature withdrawal of troops would result in
the deaths of more helpless people. Moreover except for a
few bad eggs," our military has performed with honor and
valor. Our soldiers do not need a bunch of wimpy politi-
cians, Hollywood dimwits and news media siding with the
enemy and telling the rest of the world that the U.S. is the
reason for all the terror.
World War II was won because our country was unified
against the energy. We did not cut-and-run; we stayed the
course. Vietnam was lost because the drug-culture flower
children protested in the streets and the politicians, who


got us involved in the first place, starved the military by
withholding monetary support. The culture may have
changed, but the politicians have not. Honest dissent
makes us strong, but bold-faced treason and anarchy is not
acceptable behavior for citizens while our soldiers are
fighting for our right to live in peace.
Whatever happened to the motto, "United We Stand?"
So, I submit: The best support we can give our troops is to
show them a united America. If the enemy saw this, they
would shake in their books and the rest of the world would
have more respect for us.
Editor's note: You seem, however; to also. want to be the sole
arbiter of "honest dissent." Edward R. Murrow said, "We must
not confuse dissent with disloyalty. When the loyal opposi-
tion dies, I think the soul ofAmerica dies with it."

Doesn't understand anti-USA-made rant
This is in response to the ranter who commented about my
efforts to purchase only products made in the USA.
The ranter implied that my American-made spatula had
broken. Quite the contrary. I am proud to report it is still going
strong and serving up good food to my family.
It shocked me that this ranter would infer that overseas-made
products are superior to those made in the USA. I was also
shocked at the ranter's apparent joy that the outsourcing of
American jobs was causing people in other nations to benefit at
the expense of our struggling middle-class.
I am wondering if the ranter has expressed this joy to people
whose pets died from tainted pet food imported from China.
Maybe he or she would like to express that sentiment to the
parents who watched their toddler pass out after swallowing a
bead from a Chinese-made toy.
According to an Associated Press/Business Week article, "The
coating on the beads metabolized into a chemical compound
known as the date rape drug."
More children who swallowed the beads wound up in the
hospital.
Need I also mention the numerous recalls of toxic toys
containing dangerous amounts of lead?
I can't imagine how any true American could gloat about the
suffering of his countrymen, as did this ranter.
Maybe it's because too much of that Chinese lead has gotten
into his or her brain.

Pronunciation of years shouldn't be arbitrary
In consideration of the length of time it takes the American
public to adjust their learning, I wonder if there is the slightest
possibility by 2010 that the nation could revert to pronouncing
the calendar year nomenclature as was done for the last 19
centuries?
By that, we would refer to 2010 as just that, "twenty-ten,"
rather than continue the clumsily voiced method we are
currently employing since the turn of the present century; i.e.,
that this is the year "two thousand 'n' seven" rather than
"twenty oh seven."
The main resource of this public education would have to be
radio/television, newspapers lacking vocalization means.
Of course, what do I know; I was bom in "one thousand nine
hundred and twenty seven." Just another antiquity.

Prosecuting Michael Vick is ridiculous

Are federal prosecutors so hard up for work that they are
reduced to prosecuting football players like (Michael) Vick
for a dog fight.
Heavens, we've got terrorists, murderers, drug dealers by
the dozens and there they are wasting their time chasing a
football player because he runs a dog fighting contest.
This is absolutely ridiculous. They are wasting taxpayers'
money on a silly pursuit.

Upset with address listing in white pages

An old friend from out of state called the other day and
mentioned he was surprised that I was as old as I was. Well,


I was very surprised as well.
When I asked how he knew, he said he did a reverse
search on www.whitepages.com and my age with a plus
(sign) showed up along with a map to my house.
When I do give out my phone number, I don't necessarily
want the person to know where I live.
OK, I thought I'll call AT & T and have my named removed
from the next phone book that comes out. Low and behold,
I find out I will be charged a monthly fee of $2.54 to remove
my name.
Well I am used to paying for things that I want, but not for
paying for things that I don't want. This might seem like a
small thing but I either don't have enough to do or I'm
correct in being irritated. I'm sure a lot of people don't know
this information is available when you have a listed num-
ber.
Editor's note: Telephone companies have always charged
more for unlisted numbers. Also, numbers that are listed
have always been listed with addresses. This is true for
regular and online phone books. As for ages, however, we're
stumped as to why that information was available.

A 'Happy Holiday' to all harms no one
I am sending out (more than 100 "Happy Holidays" and
"Seasons Greetings" cards this year.
Why? Because I have friends of all faiths and I want to
wish them well this holiday season. I don't get insulted
when I receive "Merry Christmas" cards, even though I don't
celebrate Christmas. I'm just happy that someone cares
enough to think of me during the holidays.
Why are so many people insulted these days about being
wished a happy holiday season? What harm does it cause?
Should I send out "Happy Hanukkah" cards to all of my
friends because that's what I happen to celebrate? Let's not
be ridiculous, folks. Talk about being overly politically
correct. Get over it.
Happy holidays.

Americans in Maine
show their support for troops
We may have been duped into World War II. We definitely
were duped into the Iraq War.
I suppose in both we were defending our country, but in
this one it seems that once started, the objectives changed.
My father believed in his commitment in WWII. My son
believes in his commitment in Iraq.-He is (in the) Army
Corp of Engineers and tells me about the schools and roads
and other accomplishments that are not in the news. I see
the body count and worry.
Actually, when Maine's 103rd returned from Iraq, they first
were in NewYork for a week. Then, when-the convoy hit the
Maine Turnpike, Maine State Troopers escorted the'convoy
with flashing lights. They were greeted with a large banner
on the Kittery overpass: "Welcome Home Maine's 103rd."
There were people cheering; the high school band
playing. Then there was the same at the York, Kenneb-
unkport, Saco, Old Orchard Beach, Scarboro exits. When
they stopped for lunch, it was on the house.
Finally at the Portland exit, Portland police and fire
engines joined the escort. Here people were lined up all
along the streets cheering for the men and women who
made it home.
If only the old saying, "So goes Maine; so goes the nation,"
still held true.
The Portland Press Herald was responsible for this
response. In the week before the troops returned, the paper
reprinted all the articles and fed the excitement. Well no
songs came out of it. At least this time, unlike (Vietnam),
the people are supportive of the troops if not of the admin-
istration whose objectives are questionable. I just want
there to be a better way than war.
I also want to thank Hometown News where I feel we really
have a pulse on the people.

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.-

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".


O


f


EMPLOYMENT
If our culture
sounds like one
that fits with your
ideas on the way
business should
be conducted,
please call us.

We need to add
to our team In all
departments...
sales; service,
parts, body shop,
and accounting.


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 "Ai'IC),c
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your expectdat
customers.


Virtually every car dealer
in Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500
to nearly $1,000. This extra
charge pr,'ramnmeid ri.:.

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.
tion and Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
Ition are I think of myself as the new
"sheriff' that has come to
er today." "clean up South Florida". In
fact, I am well aware that this
letter is, to some extent, self-
serving. Many people will read this letter and
learn why they should buy a car from me,
and not you. And, I am also aware that most
dealers who read this will either get angry and
ignore it or not have the courage to follow my
lead. But maybe you will be the exception. If
you have any Interest in following my lead,
call me anytime. I don't have a secretary and
I don't screen any of my phone calls. I would
love to chat with you about this.
Sincerely,
Earl Stewart Earl Stewart Toyota

Mr. Erlanger said the
addition of Mr. Kendall
would help the company
further along its path of
aggressive growth
throughout the state.
"Hometown News has
grown to be one of the
largest newspaper groups
in the country and the
largest circulated newspa-
per in Florida in only five
years," Mr. Erlanger said.
"The time was right to bol-
ster the management
team, and Jim Kendall is
the perfect choice. His
understanding of the busi-
ness, his attention to detail
and knowledge of the
industry will go a long way
in helping us accomplish
our goal of expanding our
footprint throughout
Florida," he said.
Mr. Kendall began his
tenure with Hometown
News this month. He and
his wife, Sue, have two
children, Kristina and
Jacqueline.

Voting, or not, is
allowed because of
freedom of choice

To those holier than thou
people who are critical of
non-voters: give it a rest.
This is a free country
where you have the free-
dom to vote or not to vote.
It is called freedom of
choice. If one is going to
vote he/she should take the
time to educate themselves
on the issues so they can
make an intelligent choice
when entering the voting
booth.
If one doesn't know who
or what they're voting for or
against, one shouldn't vote.
I vote in every election
and that's my choice.
Before voting, I find out all I
can about the candidates
for office and the issues on
the ballot. When I enter the
booth, I have a sample
ballot marked with my
choices. Voting is quick and
easy.
There are a lot of reasons
that we are unaware of why
people don't vote. They are
still good Americans.

Homeless don't
want to work

In regards to the homeless
people: There is one reason
they are homeless and that
is because they are bums.
It used to be "bums and
hobos." It's still "bums and
hobos."
If you think these people
want to work, offer them a
job. See if they show up.
(Here's) a story from a few
years ago: the major of New
York City, Ed Koch, offered
(the homeless) 100 jobs; 98
showed up. The first day, 48
were late for work. The
second day, 34 had work
disability problems and on
the third day a few even
applied for workman's
compensation. The start of
the second week, a Monday,
one person was left and
gone by the following
Thursday.
So much for work.

Some of the items recovered by police after arresting three Port St. Lucie men. Officials believe the items found with the
men were the result of least 115 auto burglaries over the last five weeks.


Arrests
From page Al
Because of the suspicion
of illegal drugs, the officers
'searched the car, and dis-
covered it was packed with
items allegedly stolen in
previous car burglaries,
including several items
that had been taken from
cars whose owners were at
that moment meeting with
police at about 8:30 a.m.
Dana C. Jones, 19, 338
S.E. Thornhill Drive, was
charged with possession of
Alprazolam, a controlled
substance; Darian C.
Jones, 23, of the same
address, was charged with
possession of 20 grams or
less of marijuana; and
Nathaniel Todd Ferbert,
19, of 244 S.W. .Manatee
Spring Way, was charged
with possession of 20
grams or less of marijuana.
Additional charges relat-
ed to the burglaries are
expected to be filed, after a
full investigation of the
items recovered.
At least one of the homes
of the three suspects also
contained items allegedly
stolen during a recent
home invasion robbery.
Based on the items
recovered, police were
able to connect at least 115
out of 150 car burglaries
that have occurred in Dis-
trict 2 of the city within-the
past five weeks, and when
the investigation is com-
ple.te, that number may
rise.
"That's 115 that have
been in District 2, which is
between Midway Road and
Becker from the Turnpike
to the river," said Capt.
Donald Kryak, whose
jurisdiction is District 2.
"I don't think it's an
international or regional


ring," said Capt. Kryak.
"I th'nIk what we're deal-
ing with is three thieves
who know that it's easy
pickings, and the opportu-
nity is there because we,
unfortunately, make it
opportunistic for them to
steal," he said, referring to
unlocked vehicles.
On display at the news
conference were items
recovered from the Chevy
and one of the suspect's
home.
The items included tags
for handicapped parking,
wallets, cell phones, CDs,
radios, laptop computers,
GPS devices, sunglasses,
prescription drugs, an
unopened bottle of vodka,
cash and a Bosch Power-
box Advance, which is a
remote controlled radio
and CD player. The box
still contained the $179
price tag.
"This is why it's impor-
tant for people to keep
serial numbers, makes and
models, so we can track
this stuff and get it back to
their owners," said police
spokesman Officer Robert
Vega.,
Capit. Kryak said 9.1,per-
cent -of the l'6 bhurglari s
in his district in the past
five weeks involved
unlocked vehicles.
"Remove it or take it
with you. But let's face it, if
you are leaving a laptop in
the car, expect that it's
probably going to be
stolen. I can't imagine
people leaving their pre-
scription drugs or Christ-
mas gifts in the open. We
lock our car when we go to.
the mall, but we don't lock
it when we are in our own
home because we think it's
our.little castle," he said.

Turbines
From page Al
discussing the wind tur-
bines before the buses
departed.
"We have one of the
country's largest wind
farms near land I own in
Colorado. It destroyed the
land and the view. While
they were building it, heavy
machines and cranes were
destructive to wildlife," he
said.
Mr. Mitchell was pleased
that FPL is investigating
green technology to help
preserve the environment,
but is not happy with the
proposed site.
"It's encouraging that FPL
is searching for alternative
sources, but I'm opposed to
putting it on land designat-
ed as preservation only."
Mr. Mitchell was referring
to John Brooks Park, the
first stop on the tour. There,
FPL wants to build four tur-
bines. Each turbine is
approximately 15 feet in
diameter and would sit on
an acre to an acre and a half
of land.
Vernon Walentiny of Port
St. Lucie was already in
support of the wind tur-
bines, but wanted to see
where FPL planned to put
them.
"I've seen them in other
parts of the country," said
Mr. Walentiny. "I have no
problem with the county or
the state putting them in.
The technology has been
there for many years out
west. I've been considering
putting a small one in my
backyard."
When the buses reached
John Brooks Park, they were
met by a group of protest-
ers, carrying signs express-
ing their opposition to the
turbines.
One of the controversial
issues is that the county
purchased the land at John
Brooks Park, along with two
other parcels, in 1984 after
voters approved a bond ref-
erendum on Nov. 2, 1982.
In a memo dated Dec. 5,
which county attorney
Daniel S. McIntyre
addressed to the county
commissioners and county
administrator, Mr. McIntyre
wrote, "As indicated in the
(referendum) question, the
purpose of the bonds was
to acquire and develop
oceanfront land within the
county for. preservation,
recreation and open space
purpose.
"Because of the specific
language in the ballot ques-
tion, I recommend that the
board not allow FPL to use
the county-owned parcels
to construct windmills," he
added.

commissioners on the tour,
Chris Craft, indicated he
was on a fact-finding mis-
sion and had not yet made
up his mind on the issue.
"I'm here to find out what
the impact would be to our
environment and our com-
munity. I'm trying to ask the
right questions and I'm
online every night. I've spo-
ken to the FPL team on
numerous occasions, and
I've told them if we do
decide we want to use pub-
lic land, it's not coming
without a price tag, because
we have to have a net bene-
fit to the community," said
Mr. Craft.
Some of the concerns
addressed to FPL represen-
tatives involved the impact
to wildlife, noise from the
turbines and the reason
why Hutchinson Island was
chosen as a possible site.
"There will be no noise,"
said' Henrietta McBee,
director of project develop-
ment for FPL.
"It will be 35 decibels. It
dissipates. It's like having a
conversation in the next
room," she said.
Ms. McBee also said FPL
is currently doing research
to determine the impact on
wildlife at the proposed
locations.
"We have a company we
hired to do a lot of avian
studies. We hired them
because they are experts
and they have started the
due diligence," she said.
Ken Gioeli, St. Lucie
County's natural wildlife
resource agent, is con-
cerned about the wind tur-
bine's impact on birds.
"My research indicates
there Are 19 bird impacts
that lead to death, per year,
per turbine. This includes
two raptors per windmill.
I'm hoping FPL can find a
way to mitigate those
impacts," he said.
FPL representatives said
the Treasure Coast was cho-
sen because it has one of
the few coastlines in Flori-
da not interrupted by hotels
and condominiums.
"In order to optimize the
equipment, we need to
keep it where the wind is
most available and the
most robust. And even with
that, it's not a very windy
state, compared to areas
like the Midwest," said Ms.
McBee.
Ms. McBee, however,
acknowledged there is no
one perfect solution.
"Let me remind you that
with any clean energy,
there is no silver bullet,"
she said.
Linda Nunn, is a board
member of Indian River-
keeper, a local organization
dedicated to preserving the
health of the Indian River
Lagoon. She was also pres-


ent for the tour.
"Obviously, we support
alternative energy. We're
very concerned about cli-
mate change, but, we
adamantly oppose any
development on any pre-
served land of any kind,
and we adamantly oppose
anything even on private
land without all the proper
environmental impact
studies required by law.
And I can't see that these
have been started at all,"
said Ms. Nunn.
At the second stop on the
tour, on land owned by FPL
near Walton Rocks Beach,
FPL representatives
showed visitors where they
propose to build five more
wind turbines.
At that site, Eric Silagy,
FPL vice president and
chief development officer,
acknowledged there is no
one clean energy technolo-
gy that meets the needs of
everyone.
"Solar, wind, any kind of
generation; they all have
their benefits and they all
have their limitations.
What we are trying to do is
strike that balance," he
said.
Mr. Silagy said that FPL
wind turbines already in
place across the country
are producing results.
"Last year we displaced
the use of 21 million barrels
of oil by our wind farms,"
he said.
"We have spent consider-
able resources on environ-
mental studies. It doesn't
make any sense for us to
build a facility that brings
the environmental benefits
that wind power does, only
to undermine environmen-
tal aspects that are related,"
said Mr. Silagy.
Commissioner Craft said
he expects to learn more
before deciding whether or
not to vote in favor of wind
turbines at the Hutchinson
Island locations.
"Local government is one
of the largest consumers of
electricity with libraries,
street lights and county
buildings. We provide the.
services you need. That's
why it's something I feel we
should be considering as to
how to mitigate those car-
bon emissions that are
potentially being generated
from the electricity that we
are using. It's all an educa-
tion. I'm trying to educate
myself just like everyone
here is," he said.
FPL is expected to ask the
county for permission to
take soil samples at a com-
mission meeting scheduled
for Tuesday, Dec. 18, accord-
ing to Sharon Bennett,
media spokesperson for
FPL's renewable projects.

Funds
From page Al
beforehand, many such as
Martin and St. Lucie counties
did not, and temporarily lost
access to most of their operat-
ing capital.
The investment pool
remained closed until Dec. 6,
when it reopened with
numerous restrictions under
the guidance of financial asset
manager BlackRock. The new
restrictions limit investors to
withdrawing 15 percent of
their current total balance, or
$2 million, whichever is
greater. Any new money
invested in the pool can be
completely withdrawn with-
out penalty, however.
Florida municipalities have
utilized the Florida Local Gov-
ernment Investment Pool for
25 years as a secure place to
store money until needed for
operating expenses and pay-
roll budgets. The recent prob-
lem started in late October,
when many of the investors
began to hear rumors about
$2 billion in assets downgrad-
ed due to problems in the
sub-prime mortgage market.
After some of the largest
investors began pulling out, it
quickly caused a domino
effect, which led to the run.
St. Lucie County was more
severely affected by the fund's
problems, s it had $142 mil-
lion in the investment pool on
Nov. 29. St. Lucie County
Clerk of. Circuit Court Ed Fry
said he was disillusioned with
the state's oversight and that
the fund's reputation had
been sullied.
"The most disheartening
thing about this is that it was a
rock solid investment for over
25 years," he said. "It's always
.been considered a very safe
and very liquid investment."
The county has no financial
woes, he added, since he was
able to withdraw'$18 million
after the fund reopened, but
he's now determined to better
diversify St. Lucie County's
investments.
"With the exception of
about $38 million, I instituted
a plan to slowly but surely
acquire treasury notes, about
$68 million," he explained.
The city of Stuart was
another municipality that
pulled its money out ahead of
the freeze. The city's director
of financial services, Dottie
Zaharako, said negative
reports on the Bloomberg and
the lack of answers from the
SBA led city officials to take
quick action to safeguard the
$26 million it had invested.
"We pulled our money out
the Wednesday before (Nov.
18)," she said. "There were
some question about the
problems, and we called them
and didn't get a response. We
decided it would be less risky
if we just moved the money
until we got some answers."
She said the fund's favor-
able rate of return and same
day liquidity made it attrac-
tive to local governments but
the city wouldn't invest in it
again right away.
"We can't really determine
right now..: we'll just have to
wait and see how things shake
out," she added.
Martin County administra-
tor Taryn Kryzda explained
that a timely coincidence kept
the county from suffering
hardships when officials dis-
covered about $120 million
was suddenly out of their
reach.
"We got a $14 million ad
valorem payment from the
tax collector on Nov. 29, so we
had cash available to keep us
liquid and make payroll," she
said.
Even so, most Martin
County commissioners
expressed outrage at what
they viewed as the lack of the
state's oversight. Although the
state helps manage the fund,
it does not provide guarantees
against losses.
"I think we ought to send a
letter to the governor and
whoever actually manages
these funds to express our dis-
illusion that anyone would
possibly put these in any kind
of high-risk investment,"
Commissioner Lee Weber-
man said. "That's not what
these funds are supposed to
be about."
Commissioner Michael
DiTerlizzi said the county
should have received warn-
ings from the state about the


problem and hinted that liti-
gation might be a possibility.
"This is a seriously large
amount of money, and there
is a fiduciary responsibility to
the taxpayers to safeguard
this money," he said. "We all
thought the state was doing a
good job safeguarding the
money.
A spokesperson for the
School District of Martin
County, Cathleen Brennan,
said the district did not pull
any money out of the fund
before Nov. 29 but said offi-
cials were closely monitoring
its investments.
"Our daily operations are


not being affected by the
restrictions on the pool," she
said. "The state is working on
the issues of the SBA, and
we're going to give them time
to address those issues."
Martin County Clerk of
Circuit Court Marsha Ewing
said that the county's
investments in the fund
were the lowest in recent
history but she feels that the
SBA's corrective measures
will eventually restore confi-
dence in it.
. "For 25 years it's been the
safest and most liquid way
in which to earn a good rate
of return," she said. "I
believe the solution they've
come up with, and the
action that the trustees have
taken, is doable and will be
successful."

What, how to pack for a cruise


T he mysterious
formula for packing
for a cruise can make
a rocket scientist run off
and build a shack on a


deserted island.
Don't despair!
Here are some great tips
for packing for your seven-
night cruise without
needing a shipping con-
tainer.
For gentlemen cruisers, a
dark suit, two good shirts, a
pair of slacks and dress
shoes can take you through
the seven nights without
repeating an outfit.
If you are sailing the
Caribbean, three pairs of
shorts and three shirts work
well with the mix-and-
match method. Also, don't
forget good walking shoes
and a bathing suit.
These items will get you
through the week. The only
other items of course
would be underwear and
toiletries.
Be sure to pack medica-

tions and a change of
underwear in carry-on
luggage, as well as a shirt
and slacks. This is in the
event of lost luggage.
Passports and cruise
documents should be on
your person, not packed.
For women cruisers,
bring three skirts and/or
slacks with blouses or
sweaters, which can be
mixed and matched.
Dresses are great, but you
only normally get one
night's wear out of a dress.
If you really need to have
that special dress, be sure it
is a dress that packs well.
Women normally like to
have shoes for every outfit,
but for a cruise, pick out a
basic pair that can take you
from country club casual to
formal attire.
Daytime on a cruise, for
women, is basically the
same as for men: three
pairs of shorts or capris;
three tops, which can be
mixed, and matched with
the shorts and capris; a
bathing suit; a good pair of
walking shoes; and sandals
for the pool/spa area.
Women will probably
have room for that sun-
dress if you stick to the
above guideline. Of course,

we need our toiletries and
make-up.
Most cruise lines provide
shampoo and conditioner
in your stateroom bath. As
a precautionary measure,
you might want to pack a
travel size container of
both. Most ships have
hairdryers in the state-
room. If in doubt, ask a
travel agent for informa-
tion.
Check with your travel
agent to see if the ship you
have chosen has a self-
service laundry. If it does,
you might want to pack a
small bottle of laundry
detergent and some fabric
softener sheets in case you
need to wash clothing.
Sending laundry out to
be cleaned can be expen-
sive on a ship, and most
things are returned
starched and ironed, even
underwear.
When you are selecting
your Wardrobe, reconsider
those jeans that you were
going to take. They are
bulky and take a lot of
room in the suitcase, plus
jeans are unacceptable in
the evening for dining.
Opt for lighter-weight
casual slacks. A must for all
cruises is a lightweight
jacket; a rain repellent one
is a plus. If you are sailing
Sto Alaska, New
England/Canada or
Northern Europe you may
want to have a fleece lined
jacket as well. Also, in
cruising to these areas, you
might want to substitute
slacks for shorts. Even in
the Caribbean, women will
want a light jacket or
sweater for onboard, as it
can be quite cool in the
evenings.
Here is a hint to avoid
wrinkles when packing: roll
instead of fold. This
promotes fewer wrinkles.
Shirts and tops folded
within each other minimize
wrinkles. Pack socks and or
hosiery inside shoes and
put shoes in the plastic
bags you get your newspa-
per in.'
Put any liquids into
zippered plastic bags. This
will prevent spillage and
ruined clothing.
Another tip is to use
those vacutm-style plastic
bags for bulky items of
clothing. It will'save space;
imagine fewer suitcases to
transfer.

Week
From page A3


In January of 2005, Animal
Control officers responded
to reports of a fight between
Liner and another dog, Boss.
Both were owned by Larry
and Lisa Ciaccio.
The animals were injured
in the fight and needed
medical attention.
Because Boss had been
deemed vicious on a prior
occasion, he was eutha-
nized.
In February of 2005, Ani-
mal Control sent the Ciac-
cios a letter, indicating they
deemed Liner to be vicious
and imposing "reasonable
restrictions" on the dog,
pursuant to Port St. Lucie
city code.
Mr. Ciaccio did not have
the right to appeal the
restrictions under the ordi-
nance.
On March 10, 2005, Mr.
Ciaccio was cited for not
displaying a license on
Liner, failing to confine a
dangerous animal and fail-
ing to abide by the vicious
animal restrictions. He was
found guilty of the viola-
tions by a hearing officer for
the city on June 27, 2005.
In September of 2005,
after Liner allegedly chased
a mother and son who were
riding their bicycles, Liner
was confiscated by Animal
Control.
After a hearing that Octo-
ber before an official chosen
by the city, Liner was found
to be a risk to the communi-
ty and the confiscation was
upheld.
Mr. Cicaccio appealed
that ruling, but it was
upheld by the county court.
In a decision filed Dec. 3,


the appellate court wrote
that the section of the Port
St. Lucie Code that allowed
the confiscation "is uncon-
stitutional on its face for
failure to provide adequate
procedural due process to
animal owner. The dog
'Liner' shall be returned to
(Mr. Ciaccio) forthwith."

Willie Gary accuser
to pursue civil suit
Although the state attorney
found no probably cause to
file rape charges against Stu-
art attorney Willie Gary, his
Port St. Lucie accuser is deter-
mined to go forward with a
civil suit, her lawyers con-
firmed.
Stuart- attorneys Jerome
Stone and Linda Capobianco,
who represent the 25-year-old
woman who has not been
identified, said it could be sev-
eral months before the case
goes to trial.
The rape accusation stems
from an incident at the Best
Western in downtown Stuart
on Aug. 17, during which the
woman alleges she was raped
by the attorney.
In his interviews with police
investigators, Mr. Gary said'
the two had been meeting for
consensual sex for months
and that the rape accusation
was an attempt to blackmail
him for millions of dollars.
The woman, a former
employee of Mr. Gary's law
firm, also admitted to police
of having a one-night fling
with Mr. Gary's son, Kenny
Gary, while she was separated
from her husband. Shortly
after that, the law firm's offices
were vandalized, with the pri-
mary suspect reportedly

Greatest gift is to live by the heart


f we want Mother
Nature to work for us,
we have to work with it.
This is done by surrender-
ing our lower will or ego
and asking the higher will
of the spirit to work for us.
It wants to.
We either live by choice
or by chance in the world.
When we say, "I hope
this happens" or "I hope
that happens," it isn't
likely to happen. Why?
Because it is living by the

mind instead of spirit and
trying to will the thing into
being. Even if it happens,
the rewards are generally
limited and fleeting
because of the lack of
spiritual blessing upon it.
The heart or instincts
inside us is where our
vision and truth come
from. They say, "This feels
good or that doesn't feel
good." This is where
choice comes from.
Our very first impres-
sions are always the best
when we listen to, trust
and act on them. When we
give ourselves choices, we
live a better life. Also, it
reduces fear or worry,
because we have set
positive ideas in motion
and we begin to see
positive results coming
back. This gives a sense of
well being instead of anger
or frustration.
There is a rich store-
house of love, joy, peace,
health, abundance,
creativity and happiness
living inside each of us
right now, crying to be
discovered and set free.
Our main mission in life
should be to take this
inner journey and find our
true self and purpose.

JAMES TUCKER
The Spirit Guide
Then create a family to
share it with. Most of us
create the family first.
It is never too late to find
our true self, even if this is
the pattern.
Start with one talent.
Everyone has at least one
talent. Then practice until
you perfect it. Read an
interesting book. Take a
class that will increase
your knowledge about
your greatest passion.
Create new friendships
with others who share a
similar passion. Get some
rhythm going in your life.
Move it forward. Joy lives
in the heart. Do something
nice for yourself every day.
One of the greatest gifts
you can give another
person around the holi-
days is a better you.
Tie a ribbon around
yourself on Christmas
morning with a card that
says, "I am giving you a
new and better me," to
someone you love. What a
great gift to last all the
year. We can't give some-
one else something
meaningful if it doesn't
live in our own heart first.
It's never too late to start
the journey within. You
have it in you. I know you
want it. It's yours for the
taking. Why not go for it?
It's your "higher self"
calling. Those inner
yearnings are not going to
go away so you may as
well heed their call. This
process is not about family
or work.
It isn't about religion. It's
all about you and redis-
covering your own her-
itage as a unique, valuable
woman or man. There is
no one else exactly like
you on earth. You have a
unique set of gifts, skills


and talents.
There is a lot more to life
than just survival. We are
supposed to have more
than we need for three
reasons.
First is to take care of
self and family. Second is
to save for a secure future.
Third is to give back and
sharelwith others who
have a need. Let your
inher vision guide you
toward your higher good.
This is my greatest wish
for you this holiday
season; that you find and
live by this vision of a new
and improved you and
become all that you were
born to become.
This is the greatest gift
you can give to the world.
Yours is a great life well
lived. The sweetest news is
the best is yet to come.

Teen's adult
sister reports
he had done
the same to her
BY RITA HART
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE A 56-
year-old Port St. Lucie man
who had been living with
his girlfriend and her 15-
year-old daughter has
been charged with felony
lewd and lascivious
molestation, after the teen
reported to authorities she
had been sexually abused
by him since childhood.
The teen initially told her
25-year-old sister about
the molestation.
The sister, who no longer
lives in the residence,
reportedly advised author-
ities that when she was 15,
she was also molested by
the man they referred to as
their stepfather. That man,

ure Coast


who the teen called "Dad,"
is Robert C. Daigneault of
the 100 block of Southeast
Serenata Court.
The sister told St. Lucie
County Sheriff Detective
Mark Colangelo that she
reported the sexual abuse
to her mother when it
occurred, but "the incident
was not prosecuted
because her mother did
not believe her," according
to the Sheriff's report.
Detective Colangelo said
he has confirmed that a
police report was filed by
the sister in Southbridge,
Mass. in 1999, wherp the
family lived before moving
to Florida. At press time,
he was awaiting further
information on the out-
come of that complaint.
The sister also reported
that in June, she saw
images on Mr. Daigneault's
computer involving chil-
dren under the age of 16
engaged in sexual acts
with adults.

Both the teen and her sis-
ter told Detective Colange-
lo the 'abuse began when
Mr. Daigneault "enticed
them to engage in mas-
sages with him," according
to the detective's report.
According to the teen,
the requests for massages
began when she was a
small child. As she became,
older, the suspect allegedly
massaged the teen under
her clothing.
When the teen objected,
Mr. Daigneault, according
to the police report, told
her, "it's a father/daughter
thing."
When the teen came
home from school on Nov.
29, she and Mr. Daigneault
reportedly discussed her
sexual activity with her
boyfriend.
Mr. Daigneault allegedly
then asked the teen to
demonstrate to him what
she did with her boyfriend,
asked her to have sex with
him, and grabbed her


Robert C. Daigneault
hand and put it on his
crotch.
On Dec. 5, ,armed with a
search warrant, the Sher-
iff's Office seized Mr.
Daigneault's computer
and computer storage
devices.
Determining what is on
that computer may take
two to three months to cat-
alogue, said Detective
Colangelo.
"We have to send it to an
outside lab for forensics,"
he said.
Mr. Daigneault, who was
confronted by detectives
when he returned home
from work on Dec. -5,
reportedly agreed to speak
with Detective Colangelo.
According to the arrest
affidavit, "the suspect
admitted to asking the vic-
tim to demonstrate a por-
tion of what occurred
when she had a sexual
encounter, but he was
insistent that he did not
touch her in a lewd mani-
ner."
Mr. Daigneault also
allegedly admitted to
searching the Internet for
information about incest,
but denied downloading
any child pornography. -
"The older sister said he's
into incest and has incest
files in the computer, and
the little girl is saying
that's his interest, and lie
admitted he had doife
computer searching on
incest," said Detective
Colangelo.
At press time, Mr.
Daigneault remained ip
the St. Lucie County jail on
$100,000 bond.

Prepare your plants for winter's cooler weather


W th the heart of our
Florida winter
coming into play,
cold snaps and possible
freezing temperatures will
be the rule for the next
several weeks.
Many of our plants will
withstand the cold temper-
atures with grace, while
others will struggle and wilt
at the first sign of a chill.
Since many of us do some
serious planting during the
cooler winter months, the.
weather may pose some
serious challenges for our
precious plants.
One of the best ways to
offer protection to the root
base of plants is to use
mulching material. You can
recycle many of the prod-
ucts you already have
around your home. Use
bark from trees that you
might have cut down or
bark that has come loose
from pine trees.
Straw also can make an
excellent mulching materi-
al. If you live in a rural area,
straw may be available
from some local farmers.
Sawdust can also be
used. If you are a wood-
worker or do a lot of
remodeling, save that
-sawdust you vacuum up
and recycle it in your yard.
Peat moss also makes a
great mulch and is readily
available at most lawn and
garden centers.
If you have oak trees or


JOE ZELENAK
Garden Nook

live in a heavily wooded
area, you can use leaves as
a protective barrier around
the base of your plants. You
can even use your.old grass
clippings. '
By using the mentioned
materials for protecting
your plants, you are
helping to recycle our
natural resources and
saving more cypress trees
that are rapidly being
depleted by the widespread
use of commercial prod-
ucts, such as cypress
mulch.
Also, all the abovemen-
tioned materials will slowly
degrade in the soil and add
natural nutrients that will
be beneficial to the plants.
In order for the mulching
material to be effective in
the event of a low tempera-
ture or freeze scenario, the
material should be at least


2- to 3-inches thick, but
keep a margin of about 1
inch from the main part of
the plant trunk. There are
some exceptions, such as
citrus trees. You should
never mulch around citrus
plants as this can actually
cause harm to the tree.
It is extremely important
that your garden be moist
prior to a cold snap. The
combination of dry soil and
cold temperatures can
cause serious damage to
tender plants.
If our area should come
under a freeze watch or
warning, take some extra
precautions to minimize
the damage to your plants.
Covering your plants will
be the next step you need
to take. Use cloth, not
plastic, when protecting
your plants. Plastic can act
like a greenhouse and when
the sun comes up, the
drastic temperature change
can be fatal to your plants.
Even when using cloth, be
sure to use stakes if possi-
ble, so that the material
does not come in direct
contact with the plant.
After the cold weather or
freeze event is over, remove
the covering material
promptly.
Fortunately, Florida
enjoys seasonal tempera-
tures throughout most of
the winter and mild freezes
do not happen all that
often.


It is important to
remember that many of
our tropical plants can
start to have cold damage
with temperatures as high
as 39 degrees. Hibiscus
plants can wilt and shiver
at around 35 degrees, as
well as many flowering


annuals.
The main thing is to be
ready if a cold snap or
freeze heads our way and
you will reap the rewards
of healthy plants through-
out the winter.

Treasure Coast Scene


Lyric

show

beats

adversity

" i'he show must go
on," is one of the
JT most well-known
show business sayings, and
it went on at fine style as
"Cinderella," the play I'd
followed from the first
auditions in August, came
to life on the Lyric Theatre
stage.
At dress rehearsal two
nights before opening
night, Vicki Goulet, who
played the Stepmother, fell
and shattered her foot.
Director Jami Dolan
stepped in to the role with
one night's rehearsal. The
cast members were
devastated, but they vowed
that they'd make magic
happen.
It's hard to be completely
objective when you've seen
a show take shape from the
beginning and you've come
to know and care about the
performers.
In any event, I don't do
reviews. I do know that I
have a real appreciation for
the amount of work
involved in any production,
from a school play to
community theater to
professional theater.
In community theater,
the performers are volun-
teers, with day jobs. They
rehearse at night and on
weekends. They do it
because they love the
theater. In several cases,
there were parent-child
cast members, enjoying a
special experience togeth-
er.
The set designer, Darren
Cripps, is a professional
who used to design sets for
Pink Floyd and the British'
Broadcasting Corporation.
He gets paid, but far less
than his professional rate,,
and he does it because he
loves to see the kids
involved, even putting
paintbrushes in their
hands to finish painting the
sets. His sets did create
magic and he did it on a
budget, which is all the
more remarkable.
Dolan had a job that
seemed almost impossible
to a non-theater person.
Every move that every
performer made, every arm

The Nebraska Theatre Caravan's production of the Charles Dickens' classic, "A Christmas Carol," comes to the
Lyric Theatre on Dec. 21 and to the Sunrise Theatre on Dec. 23. .

'A Christmas Carol' brings


back a traditional Christmas


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Matt Kamprath has been
playing Ebenezer Scrooge
in the Nebraska Theatre
Caravani's Production of "A
Christmas Carol" for 21
years, so it's not too sur-
prising that the actor does-
n't own a cell phone and I
have to call him through
his hotel's central number.
"I don't like technology,"
he said with a laugh. "I'm
old-school. I'm not of this


century. I'm' not even of
the last century. I was born
too late."
"A Christmas Carol"
comes to the Lyric Theatre
on Dec. 21 and the Sunrise
Theatre on Dec. 23.
Mr. Kamprath's road to
his. signature role was a
roundabout one.
"I got a phone call that
said that (the actor play-
ing) Bob Cratchit had
nodes on his vocal chords
and would I step in," he%
said. "I told them I'd really


love to play Scrooge. There
was a pause. She said that
there were some problems
with the fellow playing
Scrooge and 10 days later, I
was asked, 'How would
you like to play Scrooge?' It
fell into my lap."
For Mr. Kainprath, being
a part of Christmas is
important to him.
"It's trite, but since I was
a kid. Christmas was it for
me. Nuts to the spending
and buying: it's a special
moment.. My parents


owned two recordings of a
radio broadcast of "A
Christmas Carol" with
Lionel Barrymore as
Scrooge. By the third
grade, I had memorized it,
doing different. voices for
'the characters. Then years
pass and the role falls into
mylap."
Mr. Kamprath came to
understand the character
of Scrooge after playing
him for many years, and

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS
The International Thespi-
an Society, a division of the
Educational Theatre Associa-
tion, completed the fifth year
of its national community
service initiative, Trick or
Treat So Kids Can Eat.
Thespian troupe 6451 at St.
Lucie West Centennial High
School helped make this
year's TOTS-EAT program a
success by collecting 193
pouc, nds of fi:' fir local
charitable food programs.


"Theatre teaches the
importance of working
together to accomplish a goal
and the TOTS-EAT program is
a perfect example," said EdTA
Executive Director Michael J.
Peitz. "Our Thespian troupes
are supported by their com-
munities and TOTS-EAT -is
just one way that troupes give
back. In light of recent reports
of food pantries being espe-
cially low in inventory, this
program is even more impor-
tant as we approach the holi-
day season."

Antipasto is superb appetizer


for Christmas gatherings


ello, smart shop-
pers. Today, we will
make my family's
traditional Christmas Eve
appetizer, an antipasto.
Antipasto is not a salad,
but sectioned trays filled
with delectable foods. No
lettuce is used.
Genoa salami., provolone
cheese, roasted red
peppers, pickled mush-
rooms, pickled eggplant,
marinated artichoke
hearts, caponata (eggplant
spread), sardines,
anchovies, capers, black
and green olives create a
magnificent display. You
can add tomato wedges,
tuna, hard-boiled eggs and
any other appetizer food
that will fit in.
Each appetizer is
prepared separately. The
salami must be sliced
paper-thin and rolled
pencil-thin. The provolone
is not the slicing kind
found in supermarkets,
but a strong cheese found
in delis or meat markets.
The domestic is a little
milder than the imported;
cut it into wedges.
Each is placed in its own
section for individual
selection. Crusty Italian or
French bread completes
the feast.
Now I'd like to share
with you a very old and
special family tradition
that my grandfather,
Luciano Camerino, who
was born in Bari, Italy,
brought to America. A
creche (a three-dimen-
sional model of the
nativity with a stable,
Mary and Joseph, a cradle
for the Christ child, kings,
stable hands, animals,
etc.) is set up, but the
infant child is placed
elsewhere since he hasn't
been born yet.
At midnight on Christ-
mas Eve, with appropriate
music in the background,
the lights are
extinguished. Everyone'
catrids a lit household
candle except the
youngest child, who
carries the baby Jesus on a
silver tray. The oldest
family member navigates
the child in a procession


throughout the home,
blessing each room.
The procession goes in
birth order, and guests are
always included. The
Christ child is then placed
into the cradle. Everyone
kneels and prays, after
which the candles are
extinguished and all
embrace and wish each
other a blessed Merry
Christmas.
Enjoy. See you next
week.

Reader request: Yvonne
is asking for a recipe for
sweet potato soup. Can
anyone help?

Note:All the following
recipes can be made days in
advance, refrigerated and
served at room temperature.

ROASTED
RED PEPPERS

Sweet red bell peppers
come jarred, but roasting
your own is easy and the
flavor is wonderful. One
medium-size jar or two
large or three medium
peppers is enough for about
10 people when used in an
antipasto.

1 medium-size jar roasted
red peppers (not
pimento's) or 3 medium
red bell peppers
2 tablespoons extra virgin
olive oil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
2 cloves garlic, cut up
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
Salt and pepper

Drain jarred peppers
and tear into large seg-
ments. To roast fresh
peppers, place washed
peppers in pan on lower
rack of oven.
Broil until the skin turns
almost black, turning until
entire pepper is roasted.
Place peppers in a paper
or plastic bag and seal. Let
sit until cool enough to
handle. Peel, seed and tear
into large segments, add
remaining ingredients,
using a little salt and
pepper.

says that the word that
embodies the man everyone
loves to hate is gratitude.
"I believe Scrooge has
become a stereotype," he
.said. 'Audience members
need to go back and read the
story out loud. When you go
back to Dickens, when the
ghost of Christmas past vis-
its Scrooge, you see how
quickly he begins weeping
and is moved. The ghost of
Christmas present tells him
what he's missing out on. He
realizes that he has a trillion
more opportunities to make
a difference, and that gives
him a fire in his belly that


propels him through the
story. "
While the show has musi-
cal numbers and Christmas
carols, Mr. Kamprath says
that it is not a musical in the
usual sense. The show is
adaptation done by the late
Charles Jones, who served
as executive director of the
Omaha Playhouse.
"He created a version that
'many consider to have the
look and feel of a favorite
Christmas card from when
you were a kid, full of deep

color and richness," Mr.
Kamprath said. "That's the
version we produce, and by


golly, it's been effective. I've
been doing the east coast
tour for 21 years and we go
to the same venues, year
after year."
Occasionally, the company
performs before an audience
consisting entirely of chil-
dren.
"It's never the hardest thing
to get a laugh," Mr. Kamprath
said. "I love that, but when
you can get 1,800 people -
1,800 children at a touching
moment, to be riveted in
silence...that means a lot to
me, and that happens. It may
be their first live theater. It is
very special for kids."

gesture, every tilt of the
head, was part of her vision.
It may look as though
performers just stepped
into costumes and came on
stage, but it was nothing like
that. Some of the scenes,
like the food fight, were
rehearsed literally hundreds
of times, to make sure that
everyone moved through
the scene without bumping
into each other.
The casting of two men as
the stepsisters was a real-
audience pleaser, and the
two actors, Shane Blanford
and Travis Easton, brought
humor to the show as a
counterbalance to the
romance and sweetness.
Jim Trainer, as the King,
also brought humor to the
show as he struggled to
please his wife without
having to spend a lot of
money giving a ball.
The audience howled as
he tired to get into trousers
that were too tight, and
admiration is due any
performer who will appear
on stage in underwear.
The costumes, which
were created by another
professional, Carlos Toro,
were full of color and life,
and the ball gowns, espe-
cially for Sharon Owens as
the Fairy Godmother, Sandi
Hellstrom as the Queen and
Josie Murray as Cinderella,
were stunning.
After the show, the little
girls in the audience all
wanted to meet Cinderella,
and she mingled with the
crowd, thrilling several
young ladies.
. When I left the theater
on opening night, I was
thrilled for the cast and
crew that the hard work
was rewarded.


However, they still had tional]
five more performances, ships.
including two shows on contact
Saturday.. I have no idea 460-51
where they find the strength
to do it, and they have my
admiration and respect.
I am very grateful to
Shiloh's board of directors
for allowing me to follow the
production, and to the cast
and crew; who made me feel
so much a part of it.
Special thanks to Jeanette
Mazzella, who answered my
questions patiently and
made me feel as though I,
too, were part of the magic.

Three C's help when grieving during holiday season


he holidays can be
especially difficult for
people who have lost
loved ones.
Any time that celebrates
family can be hard, as those
who remain are often keenly
aware of the family member
who isn't there anymore.
Watching other families


*M


together, people who are
still grieving often are
reminded of their loss and
even people who have
moved past the stage of
immediate grief may feel
sad during holiday times.
Jacki Nardone, director of
the Harbors Community
Grief Support Center at


Treasure Coast Hospice,
counsels clients who are
dealing with grief at holi-
day-time to think of the
three "C's:" choose, commu-
nicate and compromise.

conscious choice prior to

pate in and which they
won't," she said. "They
should decide if they want
to maintain traditions or
start something new.
"They should plan for
how they want to mark their
loss and not avoid it. They
should think about how
they want to honor that
person. Perhaps it will be by
telling stories, lighting
candles, having a new ritual
or special ornament or
having a moment of silence.
There are many ways to
remember someone and
bring a positive focus to
grief.
"It's also important for
people to communicate
their choices to others," she
said. "That's especially true
with families. Each person's
way of handling grief is
different. If you want to talk
about the loved one, let
people know. They may hot
'realize that that is what you
want to do.
"Compromise is impor-
tant at this time, as well,"
she said. "If a holiday dinner
is too painful for a family
member, but others want to
have it, make sure each
point of view is taken into
account. If someone doesn't
want to decorate the tree,
but others do, let them. If
someone can't attend at all,
ask, 'I understand you can't
be there, but what can we
do to help you and make
you a part of the holiday?'
You want to decide how you
can honor your loved one as
a family."
Dealing with grief at
holiday time is complicated

must honor each person's
way of grieving, and of the
feelings of sadness, loneli-
ness, frustration and anger.
However, if the person
becomes self-destructive or
becomes depressed, it is
time to seek professional
help. That's a sign of
strength, not'weakness."
The Harbors Center
provides individual and
support groups for adults
and children throughout the
year to help people cope
with grief. The Harbors
serves the people of Stuart,
Port St. Lucie, Fort Pierce
and Okeechobee. The
support groups are free and
open to anyone who has
suffered loss from any type
of death, including acci-
dents and suicide.
During the holiday season,
additional "Coping with the
Holidays" workshops are
held and the public can find
out abott them by calling
(772) 403-4530 or (800) 299-
4677.
There is no way to short-
circuit the grieving process
and no right way to grieve.
Talking to people who have
experienced loss is often a
good way to make sense of
your own feelings, and to
understand that what you
are feeling is entirely normal.
You don't have to grieve
alone, or in silence. There is
help out there.

"Kids do need routine and
stability," said Ms. Nardone.
"Perhaps someone else can
step in and assist a bit.
Maybe an aunt can help and
take some of the burden off
mom or dad.
'Again, it's important to
realize limitations and
communicate what you can
and cannot do. Then bring
someone in to help and try
to be with people who are
supportive and comforting."
While grieving is a
difficult process, Ms.
Nardone believes it can
bring families together.
"Talk to your children
about changes in life, about
life's normal struggles," she
said. "We change schools;
we move ... because

Evan Frazer of Fort Pierce is featured during a tribute following the final game of the Port St. Lucie Athletic Association's
championship game at Sportsman's Park in Port St. Lucie Saturday, Dec. 8. Evan's brother, Adam Snyder, was killed in
Iraq earlier this month and was consoled by the PSLAA community.


Winning Isn't Everything: A


community's tribute to a fallen soldier


ven die-hard sports
fans like me know that
sometimes, the most
important thing is not
whether you win or lose,
but how you play the game.
By all accounts, 26-year-
old Adam Snyder savored
every moment of his life
until it ended for him in
Balad, Iraq, last week.
Snyder, a captain in the
101st Airborne Division,
327th Infantry, died along
with two other soldiers
from his platoon when their
Humvee was hit by a
roadside bomb.
While the immediate
family is mourning the loss
of their oldest.son, Snyder's
younger brother, Evan
Frazer of Fort Pierce, and
the community of St. Lucie
County found a way to
reinforce that there are
many definitions of family.
"Get your head in the


game. I am playing this
game for my brother," I
heard the teen say to his
Redskin teammates from
the Port St. Lucie Athletic
Association during the
team's championship
match on Dec. 8, just three
days after his brother's
tragic death.
Wearing a pair of dog tags
given to him by his brother,
Evan Frazer and his team-
mates kept the game
scoreless until the final
moments of the fourth
quarter. The Redskins
wanted the championship
badly, but more important-
ly, no one wanted to let
down Frazer in the team's
final game against the Port
St. Lucie Vikings at
McCorkle Field in Sports-
man's Park.
Indeed, even the oppos-.
ing team wanted to honor
Frazer and the memory of

his big brother, who had
been a popular student at
Lincoln Park Academy.
Viking team members
showed their respect and
solidarity for a fellow player
by wearing Evan Frazer's
'No. 44 on the back of their
helmets. With only a few,
minutes left and the

sidelines buzzing with
strategies and 'what-ifs' for
the possible overtime
scenario, Viking player
Kristian Romance caught
what would be the winning
touchdown pass from
Viking quarterback Ryan
Fetzner for a 7-0 victory.
As both teams paired off
to accept their trophies for
making it to the champi-
onship game, the mood was
reverent, rather than giddy
and boastful. When Evan
Frazer's name was called to
receive his trophy, mem-
bers of both teams and
family and friends on both
sides of the stands cheered
loudly to show their
support and respect for
both the young man
standing in front of them,
and the brother and role
model who had died
fighting for the freedom we
so often take for granted.
From behind the lens, I
watched as moms wept
openly, dads brushed away
tears of pride and sadness
for this bright light too soon
extinguished and friends
hugged, celebrating the life
of Captain Adam Snyder, for
some a beloved friend, and
for others a hero they'll
never have the opportunity
to meet. It was a moving
tribute to a young man who
had postponed following
his own dreams of becom-
ing an actor to ensure that
the dreams of others would
have a chance to come true
in a land of freedom.
I was so proud to witness
a community that comes
together in support of one
of their own and, while Evan
Frazer had only played with
the PSLAA for two years,
there was no question he

Eagles softball players land in college


,BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
PORT ST. LUCIE Mari
Stokes can remember first
suiting up for tee ball at the
tender age of 4, belting out
hits before her ABCs.
Melinda Dulkowski start-
ed four years later, reluc-
tantly going out for softball
instead of her first love of
baseball.
Both St. Lucie West Cen-
tennial superstars hit home
runs recently without set-
ting foot on a field, fulfilling
life long dreams by signing
to play at the next level.
"It was what I was working
for my whole life," Dulkows-
ki said.
Stokes echoed the senti-
ments of her teammate.
"It's part of my everyday
life," Stokes said. "I don't
think I could take a break
from it."
At first, Stokes felt her
journey would lead her out
of state, but she quickly
found a new home at Palm
Beach Atlantic a short drive
from where she lives in Port
St. Lucie.
"I thought I wanted to get
out of Florida," Stokes said.
"But then I met coach
(Kimmy) Bloemers and I
just loved it there, the whole
atmosphere.
"It's just 45 minutes from
my house."
Dulkowski was also look-
ing to make the jump out of
state, and ended up doing


just that, signing with Gard-
ner-Webb University in
North Carolina. In doing so,
shebecame the first Eagles'
softball player to sign a Divi-
sion-I scholarship.
"First off, I was looking at
a whole bunch of different
schools," Dulkowski said.
"Then I started narrowing it
down.
"They (Gardner-Webb)
showed a lot of interest. It
made it easier to pick."
The Runnin' Bulldogs
softball team is coming off
an incredible season that
nearly netted the program
its first NCAA appearance.
Gardner-Webb finished 35-
26-1, while advancing to the
Atlantic Sun Conference
Championship game.
Despite the squad's success,
Dulkowski insists it did not
factor in her decision.
"That's just one of the last
things I looked at,"
Dulkowski said. "I went up
there once for an official
visit and they made me feel
very comfortable."
Both Dulkowski and
Stokes are used to being on
winning teams. Centennial
is coming off one of its best
seasons in school history,
going 19-7 and advancing to
the Region 2-6A Quarterfi-
nal.
Both players were instru-
mental in the team's suc-
cess. Stokes led the team for
the second consecutive year
in batting, hitting .458 with
44 hits. The 17-year-old had


11 doubles, 'three triples,
four home runs while
notching 13 RBIs.
Stokes was also a terror on
the basepaths, swiping eight
stolen bases while getting
caught just once.
Dulkowski achieved simi-
lar results, hitting .341 with
28 hits. The senior had three
doubles and two triples with
knocking in 14.
Neither player was a
slouch with the glove either,
with Stokes finishing with a
.952 fielding percentage and
Dulkowski a .955.-
Coach Cheryl East said
she couldn't ask for two
more dedicated and disci-
plined players.
"Mari is very well-round-
ed," East said. "She's a great
team player. She's the kind
of player that if told her to
run through a wall she
would.
"Like Mari, Melinda is a
real go getter. She's very
competitive. She's very
coachable.
"I could tell her the same
thing I did Mari and she
would do whatever it took.
"They're both great. I'm
just so proud. I'm happy
that they can go on to the
next level and do what they
love to do plus get their edu-
cation taken care of."
Of the two, Stokes is the
more seasoned player, hav-
ing played on varsity for the
past three seasons.
Dulkowski started off on
junior varsity as a freshman


before moving up to big
squad the following season.
Both have been stalwarts at
their positions, with Stokes
at shortstop and Dulkowski
manning the outfield.
"Freshman year, I started
at second base, but I moved
to shortstop five games into
the season," Stokes said. "I
love being in charge out
there. It fits me."
Dulkowski also dabbled
with another position before
finding her place on the dia-
mond.
"I started out as catcher,
but my travel ball coach told
me I was wasting my speed
so I should go to the out-
field," Dulkowski said.
"I liked it. I was very happy
with it. I fell in love with the
position. I love to run and
track down the ball or dive
for it. Whatever you have to
do to catch it."
While both players are
happy with their choices, it
will take some getting used
to not sharing the same field.
"I've played with her my
whole life," Dulkowski said.
"She signed before me and
was very inspirational for me
to sign before softball sea-
son.
"She was very supportive
about everything."
Stokes felt the same of her
friend of 11 years.
"I'm so happy for her,"
Stokes said. "I've known her
since 6. She wanted to go to a
big school, but she couldn't
be more happier for me."

was an integral part of the
PSLAA family. Ironically, the
championship game also
marked what is likely Evan
Frazer's final football game,
as Lincoln Park Academy
does not have a football
program.
Although the Redskins-
did not take home the
championship trophy, there
is little question that the
team, and even their
opponents on the Vikings,
are a group of true champi-
ons who set aside competi-
tion and came together to
support a friend and fellow
player and his family
through a difficult time.
We so often hear about
irresponsible and thought-
less youth, or parents who
behave badly and display
no sense of sportsmanship
whatsoever,; but last
weekend, McCorkle Field
was enveloped with the
truest and purest sense of
sportsmanship, family,
community and patriotic
pride as the community


honored the memory of one
of its own heroes, Captain
Adam Snyder and his
family.

"That's why we chose this
area," he continued. "I grew
up near the ocean and so
did Elin. It's a great area."
But he wasn't here to talk
about his future residence.
The reason for Tiger's visit
was to promote Nike's new,
second generation of
SasQuatch drivers, the SQ
SUMO2 5900 and SQ SUMO
5000.
While he has no problems
with the look, feel or
performance of the square-
shaped SUMO2 5900, he
will only carry the more
traditionally shaped SUMO
500 in his bag.
"I hit (the 5900) too
straight," Woods explained.
"On tour, I need to shape

golf's best player and

Woods and his friends from
Nike dropped in at the PGA

Our sport's No. 1 player
was on-hand to introduce
the newest Nike drivers and
answer questions about the
progress of his estate on
Jupiter Island, his game and,
of course, Nike's latest
products.

he stated when asked about.

wife, Elin, and their new

anywhere but straight."
Sounds like a stick for us
mere mortal golfers, if you
ask me. Tiger showed us
how well each driver
performs, and we were
treated to a lot of great
banter with the world's best.


Tiger began his warm-up
with soft, short wedge shots.
From there, he moved to his
8-iron and then his 4-iron.
After several beautiful shots
with his 4-iron, he was
asked about the distance he
hits that club.
"I can carry it about 210,"
was his answer. "I can
comfortably hit it from
about 185 to 210."
But what about the times
on television that we hear
he has 19.8 yards to the flag
and he's hitting a 7-iron?
That elicited a slight grin.
Only in very thin air or
downwind would he
attempt to hit a 7-iron that
far. He said he swings at no
more than 90 percent,
preferring to keep his tempo
and speed at 80 percent.

From page B12
Properly warmed up and
ready, Tiger moved to the
driver. The results were
incredible.
"I can carry my driver
290," he said. He made it
look effortless as he hit
draws, fades and bombed
the ball to the far reaches of
the range.
"I can hit the square
model 6 or 8 yards farther,
but it's difficult to work the
ball," he continued. He then
went on to show us how to
hit different shots, including
his "stinger," and showed us
how with the same swing he
could work his driver, hitting
soft draws and fades, while
the new square model
simply wanted to go straight.,
Tiger plays all Nike
equipment except for his
putter. With a multitude of
victories behind it, it's
unlikely that his Scotty
Cameron will be replaced
any time soon.
"My putter's been pretty
good to me," he said with a
smile. "I put it in play in the
Byron Nelson in 1999..
Twelve majors with one
putter is not too bad."
Remembering how he
broke his 4-iron on Sunday
at The Masters earlier this
year, I asked him about his
backup clubs and what he
brings with him to an event.
"I have an extra driver,

fairway woods, wedges and a
putter," he said. "My backup
putter is a Nike."
He brings the extra driver,
with specs exactly matching
the one in his bag, in case he
cracks the face on the one
he's playing. Judging by how
hard he hit it that day, I can
understand the concern.
Tiger's fairway woods are
slightly different, allowing
him to switch his 3-wood or
5-wood for one that hits the
ball slightly higher or lower
than the one in the bag. He
brings several wedges,
changing them out as
conditions mandate.
Don't look for a hybrid in
Tiger's bag anytime soon.
However, by the time he hits
the senior circuit, he will
likely carry "a 9-wood or an
11-thing."
I don't carry an 11-wood
thing, but I do have a hybrid
or two, and I know the new
SQ SUMO2 5900 driver will
find a spot in my bag.
Who knows, we may never
play like Tiger, but the new
Nike equipment will help us
close the gap, even if it's'just
by a little.
I just need to get him into
,my scramble foursome
when he moves here. We
sure could use a ringer.
