Port St. Lucie officer Rod Dobler presents Dan Renz a
check for $500, to replace Christmas presents stolen
from under his tree:


By RITA HART

PORT ST. LUCIE Lor-
raine Renz simply wanted
a cup of coffee at the end
of a long day.
When she returned to
her home on Dec. 14 from
Starbucks, a quick 20-
minute trip, she discov-
ered the sliding glass door
leading into the living
room had been smashed
and the presents under the
family's Christmas tree
were gone.
That might have been
the end of the burglary
incident if not for the gen-
erosity of a local business-
man and the kindness of
the Port St. Lucie Police


Department's Operation
Blue Angels.
On Dec. 17, Sgt. Rod
Dobler, a founder of the
Blue Angels, visited Dan
Renz, Mrs. Renz's hus-
band, at the family home
in the 500 block of South-
west Backert Ave in Port St.
Lucie.
Mrs. Renz was at work,
but Mr. Renz was surprised
at the gift of a $500 check,
courtesy of the Treasure
Coast Specialty Pharmacy
in Stuart, which donated
the money through the
Blue Angels.
The owner of the phar-
macy, Peter Del Toro, is the
brother of Port St. Lucie
Police -Sgt. Richard Del
Toro.

Michael Themes of Port St. Lucie doesn't hide his excitement as he watches Santa Claus arrive on a motorcycle at
the Sons of the American Legion Post 318 in Port St. Lucie Saturday, Dec. 8. The American Legion and its support-
ers provided gifts for 85 members of Special Olympics of St. Lucie County.


"It means everything to
us right now," said Mr.
Renz. "It wasn't in our
budget to do it (purchase
the gifts) all over again."
Mr. and Mrs. Renz have
two sons, ages 17 and 10.
Both parents work full-
time to provide the family
with the immaculate home
they share in a relatively
new neighborhood.
On the evening of the
burglary, when Mrs. Renz
returned with her coffee,
she found the sliding glass
door in the back of the
home shattered and the
presents, which had been
under a tree across from
the door, gone.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
When adopting a dog or cat
from the Humane Society,
you are giving that animal
the gift of a new home.
In the month of Decem-

PORT ST. LUCIE -
When Mary M. Maloney
stood and walked to the
stage to receive her grad-
uation pin from Barry
University, she received
the only standing ovation
of the evening from
everyone in the room.
Mrs. Maloney received
her master's degree in
Human Resource Devel-
opment and Administra-
tion, an achievement all
the more remarkable
because the mother of 10
children is 81 years old.
In attendance for the
Dec. 13 ceremonies for
Treasure Coast graduates
at the Port St. Lucie Com-
munity Center were local
dignitaries, distinguished
professors and proud
friends and family.
All 20'graduates, most of


them parents, full-time
employees and communi-
ty volunteers, had every
reason to be proud of
their Bachelor or Master
degrees. The degrees will
be conferred at an
upcoming ceremony in
Miami, the location of the
university's main campus.
A straight-A student
with a perfect attendance
record, Mrs. Maloney,
who lives in Palm City
with one of her sons,
earned her latest degree
just one and-a-half years
after receiving her Bache-
lor's degree at Barry Uni-
versity.
Susan Braunstein, asso-
ciate professor of com-
munications at Barry Uni-
versity, was one of Mrs.
Maloney's instructors. I
"She was a terrific asset
to the student body, both
in the undergraduate and
the graduate programs,"


said Dr. Braunstein. "She
brought perspective, wis-
dom and humor, and
we've enjoyed every
minute. We are really
going to miss her."
Sister Grace Flowers,
associate director and
student advisor of the
Catholic university's Trea-
sure Coast site, remem-
bers the day Mrs. Mal-
oney first came. to the
university to discuss the
possibility of enrolling.
"When she came, she
told me that (TV person-
ality) Dr. Phil sent her to
Barry," said Sister Flow-
ers. "She told me Dr. Phil
said you should do what
your heart tells you to do.
She also said if she had
detected one hint that I
thought she was too old to
do this, she would have
gone right out the door."

Bad breath: a stinking problem for couples and colleagues
Q: What can I do to fight bad breath?
A: One in five people believe that their partner has bad breath, according to a
new UK-wide dental survey.
the National Smile Month survey, commissioned by the British Dental
Health Foundation, found that 20% of people would describe their partner
as "having bad breath" and the result was the same for both men and
women.
Although there can be other causes, such as spicy foods and some medical conditions, most
bad breath is the result of poor oral hygiene. People need to brush their teeth twice a day c
with fluoride toothpaste, cut down on how often they consume sugary foods and drinks and g
visit the dentist regularly, as often as they recommend.
Try the "lick and sniff" test to see if your breath smells. Simply lick the inside of your wrist,
leave it for a few seconds and then sniff. If the smell is unpleasant, the chances are your
breath is too.

challenge is trying to get it all
done. Everyone has their
work and their calling, and
my goal is to blend the two as
much as possible."
But entertaining people is
what Mr. Lambert is all
about. The performances
help him with another pas-
sion besides music help-
ing the less fortunate.
Money he earns, from per-
formances, such as when he
was recently the main attrac-
tion at a private party at a lav-
ish $1 million home in the
exclusive Palm Beach suburb
of Wellington, help him to
help the needy. ,
For the 100 guests at the
catered dinner, served out-
doors on the grounds of the
private stables and acres of
manicured land, Mr. Lam-
bert played jazz classics, pop
tunes, reggae and Caribbean
party music, called soca.
And in the hours following
that event, he should be
focusing on the series of
events on his schedule,
including beach weddings,
shows and parties.
"That's what pays the bills,"
he said. "It's nice to be able to
make a living doing what you
love. But it's just as nice to use
that to help someone else
gain a chance at a better life."
The steel drummer's main
preoccupation should be
gearing up for the busy sea-
son ahead.
The holidays mean moving
from booking to booking
with his band or as a solo act,
playing private parties or
events at hotels in Miami,
West Palm Beach, Jupiter,
Stuart and Port St. Lucie.
But. he refuses to be "just
about partying and perform-
ing."
The sunrise reminds Mr.
Lambert of a hymn, "Morn-
ing Has Broken," that he
' plans to arrange for a group
of children he met at a food
drive, but whose souls he


It's up to you to decide
whether you do or not," he
said.
And for the last five years,
the Fort Pierce resident has
balanced his work with his
calling using music to help
improve the lives of the less
fortunate around him.
Morning has broken like
the first morning, the lyrics of
the hymn state.
And that's the message he
wants to get through to the
group of seven children he
will meet later that day as
part of an after-school prac-
tice program created with a
Port St. Lucie music instruc-
tor.
The effort is the latest in a
series of activities that the
musician has arranged or
volunteered for, helping to
get school supplies, food,
clothing and other essential
items to the area's neediest
families.
Foremost on his mind is a
New York transfer student
whose mother brought him
to Stuart to escape a past that
included prosecution for
drug possession and a stint in
juvenile detention.
The mother, a single parent
who requested anonymity
for her and her son, said she
was shocked by his transfor-
mation by the music lessons.
"If someone had told me
that this music program
would have this effect on,
him, I would never believe
it," she said. "It's like he is a
completely different child,
staying out of trouble. Every
other word out of him now is
about his steel pan."
The idea of giving back is
close to the heart of the Fort
Pierce musician, who as a
boy, learned his art in the pan
yards of the Caribbean,
where the ethnic instrument
got its start.
The steel pan or steel drum
.was invented in the 1930s in
Trinidad, the most southern

K-9 officer helps nab car burglary suspects
An off-duty police officer walking his K-9 dog early in
the morning of Dec. 13 helped nab two male suspects in a
number of car burglaries in the city.
Officer Mitch Miller was walking his K-9 dog,'Drago, at
1:15 a.m. when he noticed two males running from an
area where he had just heard a honking horn.
Officer' Miller called 911 and he and Drago began to
"track" both individuals.
While other officers located one of the males and began
questioning him, Officer Miller continued to track the
second suspect, who was found underneath a vehicle.
The suspect was reportedly holding a stolen MP3 player.
Both suspects, Port St. Lucie residents Anthony Ortado,
15, of 206 S.W. North Quick Circle and Michael Donofrio,
21, of 4132 S.W. Baird St., told officers they were "car hop-
ping," or attempting to break into unlocked vehicles.
Anthony was reportedly the "look out," during the time
that Mr. Donofrio was seeking unlocked vehicles.
For now, each has been charged with three counts of
burglary to a conveyance, while Mr. Donofrio faces addi-
tional charges of three counts of contributing to the
delinquency of a minor as a result of allegedly encourag-
ing Anthony to participate in the burglaries.
Woman charged in death of husband
St. Lucie County Sheriff Detectives were called to a resi-
dence at 10725 block of South Ocean Drive in Jensen
Beach. Although the property has a Martin County mail-
ing address, it is actually located in St. Lucie County.
Inside the motor home at that address, detectives dis-
covered Mark Moore, who was. deceased, and who
appeared to have three gunshot wounds in his back. Two
shell casings were also found inside the front entrance
door.
Neighbors across the street told detectives they were
awakened by Mr. Moore's wife, Angela Raylene Moore, 33,
when she pounded on their door, told them to call police
and allegedly said she had shot her husband.
Once at the Sheriff's Office, Mrs. Moore told officers
that she and Mr. Moore, her husband of 17 years, had
been to several drinking establishments in Stuart through
the evening, after Mr. Moore could not get financing for a
truck he wanted to buy.
As the evening progressed, the couple allegedly began
arguing because Mrs. Moore thought Mr. Moore was flirt-
ing with a bartender.
The argument continued when the couple arrived
home, and Mrs. Moore told Sheriff's deputies that Mr.
Moore "grabbed her by the throat with both hands and
forced her down onto the couch and was choking her."
Mrs. Moore then told deputies that she thought Mr.
Moore was going for a gun that she knew was in a cabinet
in the home. When he walked into the bedroom, however,
she allegedly grabbed the gun and shot him in three
times in the back.

Sewer grinder holds key to


solving brutal rape in PSL


BY RITA HART
Staff writer


PORT ST. LUCIE -
Crime scene investigator
Lisa Falk went beyond the
call of duty when she dug
potential evidence, cov-
ered with excrement, out
of a sewer grinder in April.
Her efforts, and that of
Port St. Lucie Police
Department investigators
and fellow crime scene
technician Joel Smith, paid
off recently with the arrest
of two of three suspects
reportedly responsible for
a night of terror, including
the brutal rape of a woman
who was a guest in a home
in the 300 block of South-
west Tahoe Court.
Brothers Stardale
Owens, 28 of Boynton
Beach and Timmy Owens,
31 of Fort Lauderdale have


been charged with multi-
ple offenses in connection
with the April crimes.
As of press time, a third
suspect remained at large.
In the early hours of
April 9, three black males,
allegedly armed with
handguns and with masks
covering their faces,
entered the first residence,
where the homeowner and
three guests were staying.
The homeowner and
guests, one of whom was
female, were allegedly
bound with duct tape and
their hands were tied
behind their backs.
The female was "sexually
assaulted numerous times
by multiple suspects,"
according to the police
affidavit.
Through it all, the rape
victim thought she heard
the sound of a condom
wrapper.
She later told investiga-
tors she thought her rapist
had flushed the condom
down the toilet. Investiga-
tors reportedly discovered
two open condom wrap-
pers in the home. ,
The suspects reportedly
demanded both drugs and
money. The homeowner
fold them he had none,
but could take them to
another home that did.'
Two of the three sus-
pects ther/allegedly drove
the homeowner' to the
2900 block of Southeast
Bella Road. There, they
discovered two individuals
who were house-sitting for
the owner of the Bella
Road property. The house-
sitters were also reportedly
bound with duct tape and
tied up, and the home ran-
sacked.
Jewelry, marijuana and
cocaine were reportedly
taken by the suspects at
the second home.
The two suspects
allegedly then drove the
owner of the Southwest
Tahoe Court home back to
his property and then fled.
Inside the home, the
rape victim and other
guests heard the third sus-
pect leave the home
through a rear sliding
door.
Because the rape victim
thought the condom was
flushed down the toilet,

Joel Smith believed it
might be located in the
home's sewer grinder.
Ms. Falk described at a
Dec. 10 news conference
what happened next.
"This was a brutal crime,
so we were hoping for any-
thing," said Ms. Falk. "Joel
had the thought to look in
the septic system because
(the suspect) did flush (the
condom) in the toilet. We
had utilities there and they
opened up the lid and it's
almost like a bucket. As
we were looking down, we
could see a few condoms
floating, so we scooped
them up with some other
things in it and we just had
to dig in and pull the con-
doms out."
Ms. Falk said the evi-
dence was bagged and the
Indian River crime labora-
tory was contacted.
"The lab was a little iffy
on whether they could get
anything, but they did it
and they got the evi-
dence," said Ms. Falk.
According to police
reports, victims at both
residences said the sus-
pects were using their own
cell phones, and tfose of
the victims, to communi-
cate with each other.
An investigation of cell
phone records and cellular
tower tracking reportedly
led to suspect Stardale
Owens.
Authorities also discov-
ered a ring owned by the
homeowner of the South-
east Bella Road property
had allegedly been
pawned by Timmy Owens,
Stardale's brother.
. But the most unusual
evidence leading to the
arrest of two of the- three
suspects was the condom
found in the sewer grinder.
"A condom in a grinder
with human excrement, I
never would have thought
would have any eviden-
tiary value," said Port St.
Lucie Police Chief John
Skinner. "But somebody
thought to go above, go to
the next level. Certainly in
my 34 years in law
enforcement, I've never
seen this type of eviden-
tiary value, and I'm partic-
ularly pleased with it
because of the viciousness
of this crime. This wasn't
something that you could
let go. I mean there is a
God, and there is some
faith that there is justice in
the world, and scientific
evidence today is such
that we're able to do this,"
he said.
The warrant affidavit for
the arrest of the two sus-
pects indicates that on
Nov. 26, the Port St. Lucie
Police Department
received the report of the
Indian River Crime Labo-
ratory, where the condom
had been sent.
According to that report,
"The DNA identified on
one of the condoms is con-
sistent with being a mix-
ture from at least two indi-
viduals. Stardale Owens is
the contributor of the
major component of this
profile, excluding an iden-
tical twin, to a reasonable
degree of scientific cer-
tainty."
Stardale Owens, 28, of
6744 Heritage Grande,
Boynton Beach, was iden-
tified as a suspect in both
robberies and in the sexual
assault, and has been
charged with sexual bat-
tery by multiple perpetra-
tors, sexual battery with a
weapon or physical force,
robbery with a deadly
weapon and burglary to a
dwelling with battery with
a firearm.
Timmy Owens, 31, 1940
N.W. 12th Ave., Fort Laud-
erdale, was charged with
robbery with a deadly
weapon and burglary of a
dwelling with battery with
a firearm.
Chief Skinner said he is
confident that further


DNA testing will lead to
the arrest of the third sus-
pect in the on-going inves-
tigation.

Guilty growers should face execution

Last week in the Hometown News there were pictures of
22 people with south of the border names. Whether here
legally or illegally we have allowed you to live among us.
And you present us with grow houses, which have lowered
our property values and infected the lives of our young.
If you are guilty as charged, you should all be executed
and sent back to your respective country as a message to all
who want to cause us harm.

Deport fake diplomat

The news story reads pretend diplomat receives proba-
tion because she is a convicted felon she could be deported.
Gabriella Ferroni-Carli produced a fake diplomatic pass-
port to get out of a DUI accident with property damage and
lied to authorities. Change that from could be deported to
should be deported. We don't need foreigners like her.

Keep sex education in the home

The St. Lucie County school board has passed a sex edu-
cation referendum for fourth through twelfth graders. This
is absolutely ludicrous. This should be taught at home. This
bill was definitely opposed by 90 percent of the population.
It was pushed forward by some members of the African-
American community.
Education begins at home. Only three of four people say
this is a threat to society and the rest have to have their chil-
dren subjected to this. This is the parent's problem, not the
schools. You can't blame this problem on everybody else,
but that's the American way.

Give child abuser a lengthy sentence

What's the problem with people beating up little children
these days? I saw the piece Hometown News wrote on the
man charged with reportedly injuring a 2-yeAr-old child.
The police said Bryan Toney, 26, caused the child several
bruises, swelling of the head, black eyes and other injuries
and was remanded to the St. Lucie County jail for trial.
I am telling you that I am the grandfather of this 2-year
baby girl that was abused. She was beaten up really bad.
When I saw her face, she looked like she was in a fight with a
pro fighter. I'm telling you something has to done about
this.
He shouldn't get a slap on the hand and let go so he can
do it again. He deserves real jail time for the beating he gave
her.
I'm a war vet and I was about to break down and cry after
seeing her face. It's a shame for this to happen. I would like
to know what could a 2- year-old do that's so bad for this to
happen to her.
To all the readers out there, beware of the Bryan Toney's
out there... it might happen to your children too.

Nowhere clean to sit

This rant is about the very unsightly conditions at the
fishing pier under our beautiful bridge going across the
Indian River.
There are many benches to sit on, but they are used for
cleaning fish. What a picturesque spot to relax and enjoy the
scenery without any place to sit.

Choose wisely

Leading up to the primaries, there seems to be many
people who are looking for someone to vote for.
Should religious belief qualify you for the highest office in
the land?
Probably not.
Should the candidate be considered above others
because of gender or color of skin?
Certainly not.
We want someone who will do what is necessary to carry
us through the next four years.
I feel sorry for women in, general, and black women in
particular.
Should Oprah be the guide as to the best candidate, or
follow others who believe it would be nice to have a woman
in the White House?
I still have a lot of faith in people choosing on merit. With
all who are running, it's a tough decision.

Vick's sentence should open eyes

Michael Vick received a miniscule sentence of just 23
months for torturing innocent pit bulls to death while tak-
ing part in the fighting ring, which he bankrolled and par-
ticipated in.
With his own hands he drowned, electrocuted and hung
dogs that didn't perform well.
Why was such a light sentence handed this celebrity for
torturing the many pit bull dogs and "bait" animals on his
property in Virginia?
Where were the well-known U.S.A. animal groups in this
notorious and highly publicized case?

These groups seemed to be hiding in the shadows, doing
little for the months awaiting sentencing of Mr. Vick. Appar-
ently they may have been "hoping" some judge would hand
down at least a five year sentence.
Why weren't these "humane" groups protesting at such an
opportune time while the case was in the headlines and on
TV?
Why weren't they out in front of the capitol marching for
justice for animals, and for the legislation they claim to
want, namely, a U.S.A. law for penalties for animal abuse
and cruelty that are equal to penalties for crimes against
humans?
Mr. Vick's gruesome torture of animals deserved profound
protest from the so-called humane organizations, and pre-
sented a very suitable opportunity for the groups to alert the
public and lawmakers it is time to pass a meaningful
national animal protection law.
The groups had the media available to them during this
case. They had the chance to give animals national atten-
tion for a law protecting their bodies.
But no, the big animal groups failed in their job and aban-
doned their supposed purpose of preventing animal abuse.
Now, with just 23 months in jail, Mr. Vick and all pit bull
rings can continue animal torture without so much as a
deep breath.
So what can animal-loving citizens do to get the judges
and politicians to pass sensible laws to stop rampant animal
cruelty, and pass laws to protect pit bull dogs, bait animals,
and all animals?
Are you aware that animal abusers are also child abusers?
Ask any psychiatrist.
Now that Mr. Vick and animal torture businesses have
been given the green light from our courts, what can we do
to protect our home, family and animals?
How can we elect judges and lawmakers who aren't afraid
to pass stronger laws against criminals?
We will have to find out what these elected lawmakers will
do to make life safer in our communities.
Will the mayor and commissioners stop the local pit bull
fights and incarcerate the criminals among us who torture
animals?
These criminals will often go further by abuse and murder
of a child.
It's important for people who run for office to answer this
question before they get our vote.

'Happy Holidays' is a safe bet

To the writer who says he is not offended when someone
wishes him "Merry Christmas," I can agree with him.
But there is a difference between being offended, which
some non-Christians may be, or taking the attitude I have
always taken; accepting that some people are either insensi-
tive or ignorant but no offense is intended, therefore none is
taken.
However, people who believe in the reason for Christmas
should realize that the entire world is not Christian and
when in doubt, "Happy Holidays" can be a greeting without
ignoring the fact that the other party may have different
beliefs.
To show how little the greeting really means, last year
when shopping the cashier in a store said automatically to
me, "Have a Merry Christmas," and I smiled and said, "I will
if you will have a Happy Chanukah."
She looked at me and then laughed, as I didn't sound
offended, but how little it meant.
Ten minutes later, another purchase, same cashier, and
she repeated the original, as did I. Boy was she surprised.
My point was just to make people realize we aren't all from
the same mold.
I have many Christian friends who send me Chanukah
cards and I'm impressed with their thoughtfulness. I have
many who send me "Happy Holiday" cards to be sensitive to
the fact that they know I celebrate a different holiday than
they do.
And then there are those who unthinkingly send a Merry
Christmas card, and I take it in the spirit it is meant.. But
those who disagree ought to try putting themselves in the
shoes of people of other religions and stop and think how
would they feel if people automatically wished them a
happy Chanukah or a peaceful Ramadan?
The world is getting smaller all the time and we need to
learn more and be sensitive to other people.
When in doubt, "Happy Holidays" is always safe.


Driving 101

For merging onto the expressway: As the ramp straightens
into the acceleration lane, speed up.
Try to adjust your speed so that you can move into the
traffic when you reach the end of the acceleration lane.
Merge into traffic when you can do so safely. You must
yield the right-of-way to traffic on the expressway.
You cannot always count on other drivers moving over to
give you room to enter, but do not stop on an acceleration
lane unless traffic is too heavy and there is no space for you
to enter safely.
Now here's the big one: Drive in the right lane and pass on
the left. If there are three lanes, use the right lane for lower
speed driving, the left for passing. If you stay in the right
lane, watch for cars entering the expressway. Adjust your
speed or move into the center lane so they can enter safely.
This is straight out of the Florida Drivers Handbook. If
you would like to catch up on some reading here is the Web
site; /www.lowestpricetrafficschool.com/handbooks/driv-
er/en.
I'm sure that you can get one from your local DMV I'm
hoping that this might clarify the subject. Even though now
that you know this you still might not abide by it because
maybe sometimes you are only paying attention to what's in
front of you, not behind you or around you.
Please people, open up your eyes and exercise your brain
a bit by paying attention to everything when you are driving.
Get off the cell phone, stop eating or balancing your
checkbook, and by all means use your turn signal. We can-
not read your mind. To the police, please pull these people
over and ticket them. I know it might take some time to fill
out that paper work but it is a part of your job.
Another useful Web site:www.motorists.org/speedlimits/
Q. Isn't slower always safer?
A, No, federal and state studies have consistently shown
that the drivers most likely to get into accidents in traffic are
those traveling significantly below the average speed.
According to an Institute of Transportation Engineers
Study, those driving 10 mph slower than the prevailing
speed are six times as likely to be involved in an accident.
That means that if the average speed on an interstate is 70
mph, the person traveling at 60 mph is far more likely to be
involved in an accident than someone going 70 or even 80
mph.
I encourage everyone and anyone to read all of the ques-
tions on the Web site.

Only a few issues with working immigrants

I wanted to reply to one of the topics regarding illegal
immigrants.
I have absolutely no problem with an immigrant working
here and I'm sure that other people will agree with me, as
well. As long as they are paying wage taxes here, paying for a
mortgage, paying their property taxes, etc.
I have no problem with them giving back to our economy
just like we do if they are living and working here. It's when
they are using our resources to send the money elsewhere
so that it is not being used in this economy, getting wages
"under-the-table" so that they don't pay taxes, and even
possibly living off the government, as far as food stamps and
Medicaid.
These are things that I have a problem with. I would hope
that our government would be capable of finding out if all of
the immigrants that we have here do contributing to our
economy by doing those things that I listed just like every-
one else in this country. I have always paid my taxes and
dues where needed and I think that they are of no excuse to
do so either.

Christmas concerns

In this Christmas season, there are those who don't want
to offend those who are not Christian.
Our country was founded on Christian beliefs. Those who
cannot tolerate the observance of most of the nation should
go where Muslim, or that of the Jewish faith is predominant.
It's unfortunate that merchants feel it is necessary to call it
other than Christmas.
Some of the expressions of the Christmas season have
spilled into the workplace. I've had a personal experience

From page A6
with a Jewish boss who would not allow Christmas orna-
ments in our personal workspace.
A menorah wouldn't bother me a bit, but apparently our
savior's birth was too offensive.

Give child abuser a lengthy sentence
What the problem with people beating up little children
these days? I saw the piece Ilometown News wrote on the
man charged with injuring a two-year-old child.
The-police said Bryan Toney, 26, caused the child several
bruises, swelling of the head, black eyes and other injuries
and was remanded to the St. Lucie County jail for trial.
I am telling you that I am the grandfather of this two-year
baby girl that was abused. She was beaten up really bad.
When I saw her face, she looked like she was in a fight with a
pro fighter. I'm telling you something has to done about this.
He shouldn't get a slap on the hand and let go so he can do
it again. He deserves real jail time for the beating he gave
her.
I'm a war vet and I was about to break down and cry after
seeing her.face. It's a shame for this to happen. I would like
to know what could a two- year-old do that's so bad for this'
to happen to her.
To all the readers out there, beware of the Bryan Toney's
out there ... it might happen to your children too.

Horrified by hunters
The gun lobby never rests. Buy your little kid a little gun.
Today on local TV smiling granddad gave us the thrilling
news that his five-year-old grandson, who on a hunting trip,
just killed a 400-pound bear. And last year the little tyke
killed three deer.
What is grandpa planning for next year for this little kid, a
kindergarten massacre?

Florida should get into the gambling business
I am no financial genius, but what if gambling profits were
for we the people.
I am not talking about (American) Indian tribes only.
Actually the (American) Indians came from Asia and are not
"native" to North America. There is evidence that the Vikings
were here earlier than the (American) Indians, so perhaps
only Scandinavians should run the casinos.
In American history, the Indians were treated poorly, but
not really as poorly as blacks. My ancestors were not even in
this country at that time, still I feel some guilt. However, I
would feel just fine if all the children were taken care of with
low-cost insurance and top notch schools courtesy of gam-
blers.
Nevada is (building) a school a day. They have low taxes
and their economy is doing just fine thanks to the casinos.
Schools start teachers about $20,000 a year more than Flori-
da. Classroom size tops off at 15 students per teacher. The
casinos take care of the children of their state very well.
So now we have Florida. First, if I have this right, the prof-
its from gambling was offshore so Florida got nada? Maybe
boat docking fees only? Now only (American) Indians can
run casinos, so the rest of the state is diving into depression?


This doesn't sound like a genius plan.
If a gambling commission hired experienced profession-
als to run the casinos for the state, this could go a long way
,to taking care of all the children and schools in Florida.
I think that the state should do (what) Walt Disney did:
find a rural portion of the state, save several square miles for
a Gambler's World and its own airport, then start building
casinos.
* Florida would flourish.

Ask Florida colleges to give students day
before Thanksgiving off
I am a parent with a new mission: to make the Wednesday
before Thanksgiving a travel day for college students attend-
ing Florida state universities and colleges.
I attended college up North (a state university) and just
took it for granted that classes would be suspended so kids
could get home safely.
However, that is not the case in Florida. Brevard County
Public Schools no longer have school on that Wednesday,
and it is wonderful. College students do not need to be get-
ting on the highway after 5 p.m. the Wednesday night before
Thanksgiving and traveling anywhere between two to seven
or more hours to get to their destination. Thank goodness
the weather was pretty decent this year, but that is no guar-
antee for future years.
We cannot keep our kids safe forever, I know that, but I
think having university officials make this simple change is
something that can be changed without too much disrup-
tion to the academic calendar.
If you have a college-age student attending a Florida state
university or college, contact officials and tell them this
needs to be changed for future years. If enough parents
make their concerns known, change can occur.

Despite Republican Congress' efforts,
public supported Clinton
A recent ranter stated that President Clinton's legacy was
still a problem and that the public called for his impeach-
ment,
Let us set the record straight. The public did not call for
his impeachment. The Republican Congress was the motor
behind the impeachment process and throughout the
whole ordeal, Clinton's approval ratings remained high.
If it had been up to the public, the whole thing would have
been dropped.
The rest of the world thought we were crazy. Clinton was
very popular throughout the world and was not an interna-
tional embarrassment, unlike the present occupant of the
White House.

'Guys' just fine for this 'Island Time' writer
After reading "'Guys' isn't appropriate when there are gals
In the group," I think, "Good grief, get over yourself."
I loved the editor's note and couldn't agree more.
I am female and don't think the term "guys" is insulting to
me at all. It shows that the server is comfortable and
assumes that the dining guests are approachable. If it were a
really ritzy restaurant, then the guest should be addressed
more'respectfully, but my guess is that this was not the case.
I'm thinking this is just another perfect example of people'


moving down to Florida from a New England area state and
wanting this area to conform to how things are up there.
This is a laid back, come-as-you-are area. Let's keep it that
way!
Sincerely,
A 33-year-old girl living on "Island Time."

'Tip' giver just plain cheap
I am calling about "'Guys' isn't appropriate when there are
gals in the group," about the gentleman who leaves a (card)
stating that the server should not use the word "guys" when
there is a lady present in lieu of a monetary tip.
Servers are hard-working people who only make money
off the tips they earn and deserve.
As a server for many years, I find this appalling. I believe
the person who wrote that rant is obviously cheap and look-
ing for any excuse not to tip a good server.

Voting for a gender not the best criteria
Hello, I am making a comment on "Women should vote
for a woman for president."
The whole thing about (being) a woman in irrelevant. A
man, a woman, a black, a (Hispanic) it does not matter.
(What does matters is) they are caring individuals for this
country, intelligent (and) just an overall good person.
Sex and gender have no play in it.

Vote based on issues, not on gender
This is in regard to the 87-year-old woman who states
that women should vote for a woman president because
of gender.
She's kidding, right?
A candidate's merit is based upon such qualities as sound-
ness of character, understanding of the issues, and commit-
ment to ideals. If the deciding factor on a vote is gender,
does that not smell a little like prejudice? Surely this woman
doesn't think that the woes of society or that women-related
issues are going to be finally addressed just because a
woman is in a political office.
I have no problem with a woman running for president,
but I won't vote based upon gender, race or ethnic back-
ground. As far as a woman's voice being heard in political
arenas is concerned, there are woman in both houses of
Congress, as well as the executive and judicial branches.
Our secretary of state is a woman. Based upon her com-
ment about wanting home policies and health issues under
a woman's control, I get the sense she has an ax to grind with
the male population. My advice to all regarding the upcom-
ing elections is this: vote for the candidate according to his
or stand on the issues.

Vote for a women, if she's most qualified

This is in response to the 87-year-old woman who
believes that women should vote for a woman president.
First, I want to thank you for all that your generation has
done for our great country; however, when deciding who to
vote for this coming election year, I hope that you would
change your position and encourage women to vote for the
most qualified candidate and consider all the issues. If that
happens to be a woman, then all the better.

Musician
From page A2
Musicians in Trinidad used
empty biscuit containers,
and then later, oil drums,
pots and pans to create the
percussion instrument.
They eventually created
dome-shaped steel drums
and a sound that spread rap-
idly through the region.
Mr. Lambert learned to
play at age 11, and later
became a music producer,
arranger, performer and
composer.
In the decades that fol-
lowed, he built community
music centers in the
Caribbean to provide free
music lessons to children.
Today, his latest project is a
clothes drive that he has
largely funded to deliver new
and used clothes to the
needy in the Caribbean.
"Living here, it's some-
times easy to get distracted,
but I try to always remember
to be useful and try to make a
difference," he said.
At a recent performance in
Palm Beach, he closed out
the evening with an original
song about love and karma.
"It's up to you to live your
best life," Mr. Lambert said.
"Everything you do comes
back to you."

Pet
From page Al
the Humane Society of St.
Lucie County, located in
Fort Pierce. "We are offering
the gift baskets, not to
encourage giving pets as
gifts, but to promote a
theme of giving pets the gift
of a new home."
Mr. Andrews said the
Humane Society currently
has more than 300 pets in
its care.
"We believe the economy
has caused a steady influx
of animals," said Mr.
Andrews, citing people who
can no longer care for their
animals and bring them to
the shelter in tears.
At the same time, a down-
turn in the economy means
less pets are being adopted.
The kittens and cats at the
shelter are now housed in a
new area that allows them
more room to play.
"We've been able to
remodel the cat headquar-
ters. The area we opened up
lets in more fresh air and
sunlight, with a play area in
the middle. Our vets pre-
spayed and neutered them.
It's worked out remarkably
well," said Mr. Andrews.
The Humane Society dis-
courages pet adoptions -as
last-minute holiday gifts, so
adoptions will not be per-
mitted between Dec. 23-26.
However, gift certificates
are available, so a child or
other pet in the household
can be brought in after the
holidays to determine how
they will interact with a par-
ticular pet being considered
for adoption.
The Humane Society is
expected to move its loca-
tion within two to four
years, as neighboring
Heathcote Botanical Gar-
dens expand its facilities
into the grounds now occu-
pied by the pet-shelter.
The Humane Society has
already begun fundraising
efforts for this expected
move, including the annual
Fur Ball that will take place
on Saturday, Jan. 26 at the
Pelican Yacht Club in Fort
Pierce.
The Humane Society of St.
Lucie County is located at
100 Savannah Road, Fort
Pierce.

Sex ed curriculum set to start in April


BY SAMANTHA JOSEPH
Staff writer
ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
The controversial sex edu-
cation program that drew
thousands of opponents
will reach St. Lucie County
classrooms by April.
But critics promise to
"explore all legal options"
in a continued fight, and
work against the re-elec-
tion of four of the five
school board members.
.Public Schools Superin-
tendent Michael Lannon
said that schools have
already begun teaching
some parts of the health
curriculum that deal with
issues such as hygiene and
germs.
But the controversial
sections on sex education
will be part of eighth-grade


and high school health
education and life man-
agement courses next year,
he said.
"What I hope to have as
a result is a smarter com-
munity, both adults and
children," said Mr. Lan-
non.
The curriculum, called
Get Real About AIDS,
caused a stir in the weeks
before it came up for a
vote before the school
board on Dec. 11.
The school board began
considering the curricu-
lum for ninth- to 12th-
graders last summer, fol-
lowing a recommendation
from community leaders
at the St. Lucie County
Executive Roundtable.
Supporters cited the
county's high rates of AIDS
and teen pregnancies to


make the case for better
education.
But opponents of the
program, which deals with
AIDS and sex education,
collected more than 3,750
signatures from St. Lucie
County residents.
But they saw their efforts
dashed after a 4-1 vote in
favor of the curriculum.
"This is a vote that didn't
surprise me but does con-
cern me," said outspoken
critic, Bryan Longworth,
associate pastor at
Covenant Tabernacle
World Outreach Center in
Port St. Lucie. "Our work is
cut out for us. We have four
(school) board members to
replace in the next four
years."
The group, led mainly by
religious leaders, is
regrouping and consider-

ing a lawsuit against the
board, he added.
"It is something that we are
planning on doing," he said.
"The big thing here is we are
not going to give up. We're
not going to act like this did-
n't happen. We are going to
let parents know which
school board members sup-
ported telling fourth graders
that they could contract HIV
through contact with semen
and vaginal fluid. That's not
information that we consider
appropriate for fourth
graders."
But Superintendent Lan-
non said he's received "over-
whelming support" from
parents.
"We have an abstinence-
based program. That's what
we say first. Everything we
say is about marriage. That's
the state of Florida's position,
that's our position," he said.
And as for criticism that
the program was graphic, he
said, "We will not teach
about specific sex acts. We
are not Masters and John-
son."
The school board is also
taking an added precaution
of creating a DVD to discuss
condoms.
The teaching tool will
feature three local physi-
cians delivering the pro-
gram, so that the message
is identical in each class.
"We're not going to put
teachers in the position to
deal with the vocabulary
and sensitivity in a variety
of ways," Mr. Lannon said.

Class
From page Al


Port St. Lucie Police
Chief John Skinner, him-
self a Barry University
graduate, was the
evening's guest speaker.
Chief Skinner told the
graduates that his time at
Barry was one of the most
challenging, but reward-
ing, experiences he's ever
had.
"I guarantee you this, as
time goes on you will be
glad you did this," said
Chief Skinner.
Nine of Mrs. Maloney's
ten children are living, and
she has 12 grandchildren
and two great-grandchil-
dren, with a third great-
grandchild expected in the
spring. Four of her chil-
dren were present for last
week's ceremony.
Her daughter Ellen
Halvorsen, who came from
New Jersey for the event,
said she and her siblings
were more "shocked"
when their mother
received her Bachelor's
degree one month before
her 80th birthday. All of
her children attended that
graduation.
"I think my children are
proud of me, because now
it's much more interesting
when they talk to me," said
Mrs. Maloney.
One of her sons is a math
teacher who lives in New
Jersey and will receive his
own Master's degree in
June. Mrs. Maloney plans
on being there when he
graduates.
She said she thinks her
experiences have spurred
on her children.
"They think if I can do it,
they can do it," she said.
After the ceremony, Mrs.
Maloney was asked what
she wants to do with her
Master's education.
"I don't want to work too
hard," she said.
But perhaps working too
hard is a relative term.
Mrs. Maloney is a water-
color artist who will exhib-
it some of her paintings in
February at the Palm City
Library.
She plays bridge two to
three days a week, and is
an avid reader, preferring
mystery novels. When
asked where she finds the
time to read novels, she
said, "If you like some-
thing, you'll find the time."
Mrs. Maloney was also
approached by the Martin
County Crisis Hotline in
Jensen Beach.
"I think I will volunteer
at the crisis hotline and
put in time there. I think
with my active listening
skills, I can put them to
good use," said Mrs. Mal-
oney.
Mrs. Maloney enjoyed
the graduation celebra-
tion, but expressed sur-
prise that so much atten-
tion was paid to her.
"I thought it was over-
whelming, with all the
professors coming and
kissing me, and then the
standing ovation. I was
just shocked."
Her fellow-students and
professors thought the
attention was well
deserved.
Derrick Michael Level-
son, a fellow graduate stu-
dent who was chosen by
his professors to speak at
the ceremony, spoke about
Mrs. Maloney during his
speech.
"I got wisdom from her. I
got experience from her.
Her wisdom sometimes
meant more than the edu-
cation itself," said Mr. Lev-
elson.
Christine King, head of
the Hnman Resource
Development and Admin-
istration program, and
Mrs. Maloney's advisor,
agreed.
"She lives the concept of
continual learning," said
Dr. King. "She never
missed a class, she was a
straight-A student and she
was an incredible team

Mrs. Maloney seems to

other ways to learn, out-
side of the classroom.

ter. :So I'll start with that,

Clearing up confusion about the task bar


he task bar can be an
area of confusion for
many new computer
users.
On most Windows
machines it's at the
bottom of the screen, with
the start button as the very
first object on the left side
of the bar and the clock
the last object at the far
right. That is, if your task
bar is docked to the
bottom of the screen. You
see, the task bar can be
moved to the top, left side,
right side or its "default
position," the bottom of
the screen.
But what about all those
other icons and buttons
on the bar, what do those
do?
Let's take a look at the
things that make up the
task bar, why it's impor-
tant to pay attention to it
and how to customize
your task bar to better suit
your needs.
The first item on the task
bar is the start button.
Ironically, this is also
where you go to shut
down. Click the start
button and you will be
able to access the pro-
grams installed on your
computer and other
things, such as the print-
ers and the system control
panel.
The programs section of
the start menu is where
you go to launch programs
that you don't have a
shortcut for on your
desktop or the quick


launch area of the task bar.
As the name implies, the
start button is the place to
go to start most things on
your machine.
Next in line, just to the
right of the start button,
you may find the afore-
mentioned "quick launch"
area. Here you will find
more shortcuts, usually to
commonly used applica-
tions such as Internet
Explorer and Outlook
Express. You may even see
an icon called "show
desktop" (if you hold your
mouse over an icon
without clicking and wait,
you'll see its name). This is
a great icon to click when
you have one or more
windows open and taking
up the whole screen.
Clicking it minimizes
everything, so you can get
back to the desktop.
Now what if you don't
have a quick launch area
in your task bar? If you
click an empty area 6f the
taskbar with the right
mouse button, a pop-up
menu will open. Hold your
mouse over tool bars, and
a list of available toolbars
will appear. Click the
quick launch toolbar, and
a check mark should
appear before it. Then,
click anywhere outside of
the little menu, and it will
close and you should now
see the quick launch area
of the task bar.
, Shortcuts here can be
easily added or removed
by right-clicking the icon


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This
you want removed and
clicking delete and drag-
ging a shortcut that you
would like there and
dropping it in place.
Again, the 'quick launch
area is a great place to
house your most frequent-
ly used icons.
Next to the quick launch
area is a long section of
task bar that will be empty
unless a program or
application is running.
When you launch a
program such as Internet
Explorer, Word or Outlook
Express, a button will
appear on the task bar
representing the program
that is running.
This is important to
keep an eye on, as today's
machines let you launch
multiple programs and
open multiple windows
(this is called multi- '
tasking). ,
Keeping an eye on what
buttons appear in your task
bar helps you manage what


applications are running,
let's you jump back and
forth from one open
window to another and
close unwanted windows by
"right-clicking" the button
and selecting close. It's not
uncommon to have many
buttons representing active
windows on your system,
but a good rule of thumb is
to close any windows you
are not accessing and that
will free up more computer
brainpower.
The next area on the task
bar, to the right of any
application buttons that
migit be running, you will
notice a number of icons
surrounded by a fine
rectangle. The icons in this
area (known as the system
tray) are different from the
icons in the quick launch
area. These icons repre-
sent programs that are
running in the background
and using computer
brainpower. IWn an opti-
mized machine you'll
usually only find a few
items in the system tray:
the clock, volume control
and an icon representing
your anti-virus.
Unfortunately, most
machines are plagued with
items in the system tray
eating up computer
horsepower and can use a
good weeding out.

Mrs. Moore has been
charged with second-degree
manslaughter.

Permanent water
restrictions issued

After Jan. 15, residents of
the Treasure Coast and the
rest of South Florida will be
limited to watering their
lawns once a week.
The governing board of
the South Florida Water
Management Distict voted
to implement the more
severe restrictions after
declaring a "drought emer-
gency" in the 16 counties the
district serves. According to
the district's rainfall totals as
of Dec. 13, only slightly more


than half-an-inch of rain
had fallen since the start of
the 2007-2008 dry season.
The region is close to
breaking a 51-year record
low if rainfall continues to
be scarce. Lake Okee-
chobee is more than 41
feet below average for this
time of year and is cur-
rently at 10.18 feet above
sea level. The lake serves
as a backup water supply
for most of South Florida.
Residents of Martin
County and the rest of the
Treasure Coast with odd-
numbered addresses will
be allowed to water on
Monday, while those with
even-numbered addresses
must water on Thursdays.
They must also choose to
water between the hours
of 4 a.m. to 8 a.m. or from
4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Watering
will only be allowed once
per day, and weekend
watering is no longer per-
mitted due to the strain it
caused on some water sys-
tems.
Landowners with more
than five acres must follow
the same address and day
restrictions but can water
either between the hours
of 12 a.m. to 8 a.m. or from
4 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. Hand
watering for distressed
landscaping or plants in
danger of dying will be
allowed for 10 minutes
daily.
In addition, golf courses
must restrict their water
usage by 45 percent, but
there are no restrictions
on decorative fountains or
swimming pools, vehicle
washing or pressure clean-
ing of paved surfaces.

LEARNING CENTER'
















I started going to
Jerusalem in 1994 and
I've never stopped
going.
It's my favorite city in the
world and I fell in love with
it immediately.
It was easier getting
around Jerusalem then,
but once the 2000 Intifada
began everything changed.
You had to be very careful,
but I still never stopped
going, even when few
tourists walked the streets
and the hotels were nearly
empty. I felt safe, but the
sadness was palpable.
Everyone wanted peace,
but the question was and
still is, how to achieve it.
Today, times are better
and Jerusalem is having a
resurgence of tourism. It's
a great place to experience
history, culture and
spirituality, but for me it's
the cross-cultural mix
that's so dynamic. It means
people don't always get
along, but that's often
been Jerusalem's story. It's
a work in progress and
when I'm there I feel part
of it.
Whenever I go, I try to
stay at the historic Mount
Zion Hotel, just a brief
walk from Jerusalem's Old
City. I hope for a room
with a balcony overlooking
the ancient city walls,
which are lit up at night. In
the morning I wait for the.
sunrise over the Judean
-Hills and Mount of Olives.
Then my day begins with a'
huge kosher breakfast and
a quick walk to Zion Gate.
The Old City is sur-
rounded by high walls
erected by Sulieman, in
1537 A.D. with eight gates
for entering. It's fun to take
the Rampart's walking tour
atop the walls for a great
view.
My first stop is tradition-
ally at Mary's Church of
Dormition. It's a beautiful
place honoring Mary's
eternal rest, with a daily
service for peace. There's
also a fine gift shop and a
tearoom serving great
cocoa for those windy
Jerusalem days.
From there, I often walk
to King David's Tomb or
the site of the Last Supper.
Next, I enter the Jewish
quarter and the cardo,
once a Roman market-
place. I pass synagogues,
underground archeologi-
cal museums, upscale
shops, delicious bakeries
and my friend, Buddy's
deli for a sandwich or
some chicken soup. After
lunch, I'm off to the
Wailing Wall, leaving my
prayers for peace, written
on tiny scraps of paper and
placed in the cracks of the
wall with other prayers. At
the base of King Solomon's
Temple,, there's a new
museum about the site
and tourists are encour-
aged to explore the ancient
ruins.
From the Wailing Wall, I
like to visit the Temple
Mount, El Aqsa Mosque
and the beautiful Dome of
the Rock. During the
Intifada, the site was
closed to non-Muslims,
but now it's opened again,
another sign of,progress.
Next, I walk into-the
Arab quarter where


SUSAN DREW
Travel columnist

everything under the sun
is sold. On my way, I pass
the Stations of the Cross,
marking the path Jesus
took before his crucifixion.
Then I'm off to the Church
of St. Anne, a lovely place
dedicated to Mary's
mother. The acoustics of
the church are perfect, so
visitors are invited to sing
anytime. Beautiful gardens
and ancient ruins sur-


round the church. It's
thought Jesus performed
many miracles here.
Then I head to the
Christian quarter and the
Church of the Holy
Sepluchre, marking Jesus'
burial place. As you near
the church you can buy
religious items, including
candles, incense and
icons.
If you continue walking
through the winding
streets you'll eventually
come to the Armenian
quarter with its colorful
bazaars. Located here is
my friend, Basim's spice
shop. I love to sit and have
a cup of tea with him,
taking in all the sights and
smells of his wares.
Then as I exit the
labyrinth of the Old City, I
head towards Jaffa Gate.
Suddenly, I'm at the
Citadel of David Museum.
It's a fascinating place,
dedicated to Jerusalem

The Bible is one
book, one history
and one story;
"God's story."
Eternity bounds each
side, with time in
between.
At times, the Bible is
unbelievably extraordi-'
nary. It speaks of the
incredible parting of seas,
and of the sun standing
still. Miracles are the
norm.
The Bible has been
banned, burned, and
ridiculed, yet it has
survived.
Why?
There is no way on earth
to explain it.
Did you notice I said "on
earth"?
The Bible's durability
cannot be found on earth;
instead it is found in
heaven.
For the countless
millions who have tested
its claims and claimed its
promises, there is but one
,answer. The Bible has
been, and will continue to
be preserved, by God. It
contains His message to
us. It is our owner's
manual.
As we read it from the
beginning, we will notice
that there is a thread that
runs through all of the


(T'.



l-




DAVID GOODE
Religion columnist
books of the Bible.
The Bible is a collection
of real-life stories, but it is
more. There is "one story"
told by the collection of
individual stories.
As we zoom out and
look at from this perspec-
tive, we begin to follow
the thread, and we
discover the "big picture."
At the center of the "one
story" is God, and what
he is doing with our
planet and the human
race.
God's story must be told
because God wants us to
understand that he is
building an everlasting
kingdom.
After creation, the
temptation and fall of
Adam and Eve in the


Garden of Eden, God
launched his plan.
Because of rebellion,
Adam and Eve died
spiritually. They needed a
redeemer to connect
them back to God, and to
regain the life and posi-
tion they lost by choosing
to disobey God.
God selected one man,
Abraham, and his descen-
dants to begin the plan of
redemption of mankind.
God told Abraham to
leave his country, and
gave him a threefold
promise. God promised to
build a great nation from
Abraham's family and
bless him, to make his
name great and make him
a blessing to others. God
promised to bless those
who bless Abraham, and
to curse those who curse
him. Finally God prom-
ised to bless all the
people of the earth
through Abraham.
The first chapter in
God's story was to build
an earthly nation, from
Abraham's descendants,
the nation of Israel.
The second chapter in
God's story was to edu-

cate Israel about the
consequences of sin. The
Israelites worshiped false
gods, so God commis-
sioned his spokesmen,
the prophets to urge the
Israelites to repent of
idolatry. The people
largely ignored the
prophets.
The third chapter in
God's story addressed the
issue of his judgement
concerning the practice
of idolatry.
The kingdom divided,
the northern half of the
kingdom, Israel, fell to
the Assyrians and was
exiled. Israel was experi-
encing God's judgement
because of idolatry.
The southern half of the
kingdom, Judah, was
taken into exile in Baby-
lon one hundred and fifty
years later for similar
reasons. This was also the
result of idolatry.
Exile was nothing new
to the Jewish people
because they became
slaves in Egypt. But God
delivered them through
Moses, with the dramatic
parting of the Red Sea.
The fourth chapter in


God's story introduces
Jesus, the Messiah. In this
chapter, God purchases
redemption by sending
his son, Jesus to the
earth. This part of God's
story takes the plot from
the birth of Jesus, to the
cross, to his glorious
resurrection, and ascen-
sion in to heaven. '
When we accept Jesus
as our personal Savior
and Lord we become part,
of God's story. We belong
here! This is how we fit
into the "big picture." At
this point we become
kingdom citizens with
rights and privileges.
Because of Christ's
death and resurrection,
we come directly to our
Father, God. Christ is our
great High Priest.
As we come to chapter
five of God's story, He
begins to build His
kingdom through the
church, His body of
believers.
In chapter six, God's
plan to build an everlast-
ing kingdom is fully
realized. This ushers in
the glorious Second
Coming of Christ and his


rule on earth.
Epilogue: in the eternal
kingdom of redeemed
people, the love of God
will rule supreme. Finally,
there will be peace on
earth and good will
toward men. His glory
will be magnified, and his
kingdom citizens, you
and me, will be filled with
everlasting joy. I don't
know about you, but this
is the part that I don't
want to miss.
Join us this Sunday at
Heart of Worship. We
offer free food and gift
cards to those in need,
and free piano/keyboard
classes all year round. We
are an informal and
interactive family, come
and join us for fellowship.

Wishing everyone a healthy year


This is the third
holiday wishes
column I've had the
pleasure of writing and, as
in the past, my chief wish
for you is good health.
It is the most precious
gift there is, as I am
reminded whenever
someone I love faces a
health challenge.
While I wish you good
health, I know that each of
us has to take responsibili-
ty for some of our health
care. No one can promise
that you won't get sick, but
you can lessen your risk.
Get the mammogram
and the colonoscopy. Get a
flu shot if it is recom-
mended for your age and
health. If you need to lose
weight, now is the time.
Everyone should get more
exercise, whether weight
loss is an issue, or not. It
will help control your
blood pressure and lower
your risk of diabetes.
Above all, stop smoking.
Smoking kills. There is no
safe cigarette.
I Wish you the gift of
time. There is an irony
that with all the technolo-
gy and labor-,saving
devices, everyone has less
time rather than more.
Make time for yourself and
your friends and family.
It's so sad to see a mom
and daughter walking
through the mall, each one
on a cell phone, or a dad
with kids at a fast-food
restaurant, this time with
dad on the phone. Declare
a no-cell-phone zone or a
phone-free hour of the
day.
If you're not on call for
brain surgery, you don't
have to be available 24/7.
There was a time when
people left messages and
reached us when we got
back to them. Most of us
don't need to be available
all of the time.
Stress is a health risk
and I'd love to wish a
stress-free life for every-
one. Since that is impossi-
ble, I hope you will try to
lower your stress level.


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well

Again, exercise helps. I
have begun working out to
dance tapes and I find
them not only great
exercise, but fun to do. It's
hard to be stressed while
you're trying to samba.
As I mentioned once
before, I have begun
singing lessons. I find the,
deep breathing is a great
stress reliever, much as I
imagine yoga or tai chi to
be. I like singing because
it's fun. I sing funny songs
that I can belt out. How
can you not feel better
after a round of show
tunes?
Find your passion and
enjoy it. Even if you can
only spend an hour a day
at it, it's worth finding the
time.
I wish that everyone
could be surrounded by
loving family and friends.
You can't do much about
the family, or lack of one,
but you can do something
about the loneliness. Join
a club or organization that
interests you. Volunteer.
The community needs you
and it will remind you of
how fortunate you are.
Gather a circle of friends.
If they are far away, keep
in touch via the phone or
e-mail. It is important for
good physical and mental
health to share.
If you are a caregiver,
make time for yourself. I
have learned this lesson
the hard way. I cannot
help my husband, Roy,
cope with his Alzheimer's
and Parkinson's diseases if
I am so run down emo-


tionally and physically
that I cannot see straight. I
have learned to ask for
help from organizations
and from friends. I have
learned to say, "no," when
I cannot do something,
and "yes" to myself when
it means taking time to go
out and do something for
me.
It is not being selfish to
take care of yourself. You
cannot be a good caregiver
if you are not feeling well
physically and emotionally.
Remember, life and
health are precious gifts.
Treasure them. If you are
ill, I wish you a return to
good health. If your
illness chronic and you
have good and bad days, I
wish you many more good
ones. If someone you
know is ill or alone, reach
out to them. You will never
regret helping someone
out when they're down.

In the past several
columns, I have been
talking about all sorts of
plants that are popular
during the holidays.
Today I am going to talk
about a couple that just
don't seem to have as much
fame. Although you may
find these varieties a bit
harder to locate locally, they
are available at some
specialty garden centers.

Cyclamen
The blossoms of the
cyclamen twist and turn
almost like the small wings
of a butterfly. The foliage
has a distinct silvery,
marbleized coloring that
makes this plant unique.
These plants are quite
beautiful, but they do
require a lot of care to stay
healthy. The most impor-
tant criteria for success are
temperature and moisture.
Cyclamen require low
temperatures in order to
thrive for any length of time.
You must keep them out of
the warm outdoor tpmpera-
tures and keep them in an
area of your house that is
cool. This is tricky, because
at the same time, they also
'must be in an area that has
ample light.
Cyclamen also are finicky
about watering. They need
to be watered daily so the
soil is evenly moist. Always

outside potted plant.
These plants are native to
Hawaii and South America.
They are also readily available
at most local garden centers.
Anthurium are relatively
easy to care for and enjoy.
They have very attractive
foliage and can produce
flowers almost year round.
They prefer a growing
medium that is coarse and
well drained. The best
mixture is a composite of peat
moss, pine bark and perlite.
These plants like to be
watered completely and then
allowed to dry slightly before
watering again.
Anthuriums will grow
indoors or out, and will do
well in very bright locations. I
have had tremendous luck
with my plants under the
protected overhang of my
front porch.
They also require regular
fertilization in order to keep
their lush green foliage and
colorful flowers. Fertilize
using a slow release fertilizer
such as Osmokote for indoor
plants.
Although I have never had
any pest problems with my
plants, they are susceptible to
the usual indoor pests such as
scale, mealy bugs and aphids.
If problems arise, use a
plant insecticide that is
designed for indoor plants
and be sure to spray all parts
of the plant, especially under
the leaves.

and its endless history
of conquests.
On my last trip to
Jerusalem, I was walk-
ing back to the hotel
when I ran into Charlie
(a part-time bartender
and guide). He told me
Bethlehem had just
been opened up to
tourists again and did I
want to go? Of course!
So heading through
endless checkpoints the
next day, we drove into
the, Palestinian city of
Bethlehem, arriving at
the Church of the
-Nativity. I hadn't been
there since 1994, but I
was thrilled to return
and knew it signified
progress. Many Pales-
tinians thanked me for
coming and hoped that
others would follow
soon.
That's the thing about
cities such as Jerusalem
and Bethlehem. They
endure through the best
and worst of times.
Luckily, times are better,
now and tourism is
increasing. I'm hoping
to return this spring
and who knows, maybe
2008 will be a year for
real peace.

water your cyclamen by
wetting the soil and not the
plant. Watering the foliage
can cause the plant to rot
and die.
Since the plants like
humidity, placing them on a
tray filled with pebbles and
water will provide the
moisture they need. Feed
your plants monthly with a
liquid plant food designed
for house plants.

Anthurium
This plant makes a really
nice holiday table decoration.
It can grow in the most

From page A7
Vote on policy,
not on gender
Dear Madam 87-year-
old. You are very much
entitled to voice your
opinion. You've seen many
positive changes in
women's rights. However, I
must strongly disagree,
with your premise to vote
for gender.
I thought the American
way to choose a candidate
was because of policies,
not gender, race or reli-
gion. Personally, if Con-
dolezza Rice were running
for president, she'd get my
vote because she, in my
opinion, is a fair-minded,
sagacious woman worthy
of leading this country. I
can't say the same about
,Mrs. Clinton.
Vote policy; not gender.
Don't vote
using shallow
consideration
Women and men should
only vote for the person
who will best fulfill the
duties of the president of
the United States.
One shouldn't vote for
someone based on gender,
religion, race, charisma or
any other shallow consider-
ation.
Nevertheless, honor,
intelligence (and) valor, are
important. I do not believe
that someone can lack per-
sonal morality and have
political integrity. That goes
for the president of the
United States as well as for
his or her spouse, who will
Olso occupy the White
House.
I am so disappointed in
the offerings presented. I
Om now hoping for a third
party and will vote for a
third-party candidate if that
person' is intelligent, moral,
And respectable.
If you want a woman,
how about we draft (Rep.
Nancy) Pelosi? Did you see
that she has the courage to
stand up to the oil compa-
nies? I am impressed ... and
a little worried for her.
To avoid slow drivers,
stay in right lane
In response to ,all the
"left-laners," I say, "Stay
over there and out of my
lane, the right lane."
That keeps the right lane
open for me to cruise
through without waiting for
the slow ones to move out
of the way. No problems.

Pineapple Playhouse
mourns two
of its own
The Pineapple Playhouse is
mourning the loss of two
people important to the
theater and to the communi-
ty at large. Wilma Cowles,
who started what is now the
Pineapple Playhouse in 1949,
under the auspices of the
Woman's Club of Fort Pierce,
died Dec. 8 in Miami. The
organization, known as the
Dolphin Players, performed
locally for several years until
it was suspended for financial
reasons. The group re-
organized as the Fort Pierce
Little Theatre and in 1973,
was re-incorporated as the St.
Lucie Community Theatre.
Wilma Cowle was an hon-
orary life member of the
theater's Board of Directors.
Ms. Cowles' family has
requested that donations be
made to the Pineapple
Playhouse; contributions can
be sent to The Pineapple
Playhouse, 700. W. Weather-
bee Road, Fort Pierce 34982.
Captain Adam Snyder died
December 5 in a combat
hospital in Iraq at the age of
26. He was bom and raised
in Fort Pierce and graduated,
from Lincoln ParkAcademy.
Captain Snyder was a
member of the Pineapple
Playhouse's summer camps
and appeared in "life with

Jernie Talles: A teen talent


looking ahead to a big future


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Jernie Talles of Fort
Pierce has been singing
for eight years, which is
pretty remarkable since
she's only 13.
The Lincoln Park Acad-
emy student with her'
very own recording con-
tract has a new CD called
"Jernie," but she's
grounded enough to
have a back-up career in
veterinary science if
singing doesn't work out.
Still, music. has always
been a big part of her life.
"We watched "Annie" in
pre-school and I sang
"Tomorrow," she said.
"When everyone made a
fuss,, I started singing
other things."
When she was eight,
her great-grandfather's
friend sent a tape to the
"Maury Povich Show" for
a segment on talented
kids and she appeared,
singing "Proud Mary."
"It was cool, but very
hectic," she said. "Twen-
ty minutes before I went
on, they told me I had to
sing with the band. I had
never sung with the band
before."
The young singer's
name is a combination of
the names of her parents,
Jennifer and Bernie, but
she lives with her mom, a
single parent.
Finding a balance
between performing and

Thirteen-year-old Jernie Talles of Fort Pierce, a student
at Lincoln Park Academy, has been signed to a record
deal by independent label Mirrome Records.


being a kid was not
always easy. Sometimes
she found herself com-
mitted to things she did-
n't really want to do. Jen-
nifer Talles takes
responsibility for that.
"In the very beginning,
I said yes to everybody,"
she said. "I was so excit-
ed. One day we talked
and I asked her if she
wanted to do it. Now, if
she doesn't want to, we're
not going to do it."
Jernie echoes the senti-


ment and says that she
likes to do kid things like
play volleyball and soc-
cer.
This year, she per-
formed in the Lincoln
Park production of "Cin-
derella" in the chorus,
which she considers as
important. as having a
starring role.
She's excited about
having a record contract
with independent label
Mirrome Records, but
says that she didn't real-


ize the importance of it
right away.
"When I went to
Nashville and started
recording, it hit me," she
said. "Everybody wants
to have a contract. I'm so
lucky. It's really a bless-
ing."
Rod Carter, president
of Mirrome, signed
Jernie, who was then 12,
.t6 a four-record deal
because he believes she
has a unique talent.
"She's talented far
beyond her years," he
said. "She's focused and
her desire to go into
music is not because
she's being pushed. We're
slow-walking her right
now because we expect
her to have a long career.
We've set up a trust fund
and her contract was
approved by the courts.
We have long-range
plans but we're not dis-
couraging her own goals.
She goes from being an
entertainer to being a
kid. She's well-ground-
ed."
One of the songs on the
CD "Mama's Little Girl,"
is the single that's out
right now and it's popular
outside the United
States, including places
like.Japan.
She didn't write the
songs on this CD, but she
is beginning to experi-
ment with song-writing.
She admires LeAnn

INNHI ENTEBTHINMENT


W ;; IOwner and chef Fiorentino

in Stuart. The restaurant
focuses on homemade
.H .. Southern Italian cuisine
from the Calabria region.

Experience Southern

Italy at Fiorentino's


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer,
STUART It's hard to be
Italian and not have olive oil
and garlic running through
your'veins. Just ask Fiorenti-
no, the owner and head chef
of the restaurant bearing his
name on East Ocean Boule-
vard in Stuart.
After successfully operat-
ing La Gondola Italian
restaurant in Margate for
several years, Fiorentino
Diluca, or simply "Tino," as
most people call him,
moved to Stuart and took a
year's sabbatical from the
restaurant business. But the
native of Calabria in the toe
of Italy's boot said it was
harder than he imagined
fighting his true calling.
"Only a year out of the
business, and I was going
crazy," he said.
Last March, he opened up
Fiorentino's Italian Cuisine
in Stuart, and once you
experience his take on
Southern Italian cuisine,
you'll be glad he didn't
change professions.
The crusty and buttery
bread brought to your table
is the perfect accompani-
ment to a bowl of pasta fagi-
ole soup, a comforting con-
coction of red kidney beans,
elbow pasta, Italian sausage
andr. other savory ingredi-


ents.
Or, you might prefer to
start off with a caprese
salad: slices of tomato and
fresh mozzarella cheese
sprinkled with 'basil and
drizzled with olive oil. It
doesn't get any more Italian
than that!
Other appetizers range
from fried zucchini and
calamari to minestrone
soup. You might want to
order your appetizer first to
give you time to ponder the
ample menu, which
includes nine seafood
choices, 11 different pastas
and several veal, chicken
and eggplant selections.
Fiorentino's offers a great
selection of wines to help set
the stage for a superb dining
experience, in addition to a
number of imported and
domestic beers and other
beverages.
If you still haven't decided
on an entree, then this
writer strongly suggests the
exquisite baked eggplant
rollatini: tender' slices of
eggplant rolled around
ricotta cheese and baked to
perfection under a blanket
of tomato sauce and moz-
zarella cheese.
For a truly palate-pleasing
experience, order Tino's filet
of sole Francese. Swimming
in a pool of lemon juice and
olive oil, this delicate fish is


perhaps one of the chef's
finest creations, and you'll
savor every bite. Other
seafood choices include
shrimp marinara and
parmigiana, linguini with
red or white clams and
salmon, served either grilled
or broiled.
All of this rich cuisine is
best followed by a serving of
Tino's light and creamy
homemade tiramisu. If
you're in the mood for a
more decadent treat, then
go for a slice of cheesecake
or the crunchy, smooth
combination found only in a
cannoli.
Fiorentino's is open for
lunch beginning at 11 a.m.
and offers a number of
lunch specials, in addition
to a variety of both hot and
cold subs. Dinner prices are
very reasonable, with most
entrees costing under $13.
The small and cozy locale
offers two dining venues,
one bright and airy and the
other dark and woody. The
latter makes a great spot for
a romantic interlude, with a
cozy gas fireplace surround-
ed by wine racks and book-
shelves.
Fiorentino's Italian Cui-
sine is located at 2571 Ocean
Boulevard in,,Cedar Point
Plaza- T,.>r mort- informal

'Singing Policeman' plays Lyric


Daniel Rodriguez is an
American success story.
The singer, who gave his
BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer

first Carnegie Hall recital at
16, left a budding musical
career behind to take care of
his family.
He worked at the Post
Office and the NewYork City
Police Department and
became "The Singing
Policeman," familiar to all of
us as he sang at the funerals
of police officers, fire fight-
ers and civilians who died
on Sept. 11.
Today, retired from the
NYPD, he tours the world
with his music and comes to
the Lyric Theatre on Dec. 28.
Even before the horrible
events of Sept. 11, 2001, Mr.
Rodriguez performed the
national anthem for the
NYPD and was well-known
in NewYork.
Mayor Rudy Giuliani
helped set up an audition
for Mr. Rodriguez at the
Metropolitan Opera, but it
did not go well.
"It Was a tragedy," he said.
"They looked at me and
said, 'What makes you think,
a policeman can become an
opera singer?' I sang a few
notes and that was it."
Still, Mr. Rodriquez turned
tragedy into triumph.
"Placido Domingo was


country we are. It was full to
capacity, strong, without
fear. The audience gave me a
sense of awe; it was electri-
fying."
Mr. Rodriguez has
released three albums. The
first, 'Spirit of. America,'
Was patriotic, the second,
'From My Heart,' was
romantic, and the third, 'In
the Presence,' is largely
spiritual.
"I've always been a man
of faith," he said. "We
decided it was time to con-
nect to my faith and I cre-
ated it with Johnnie Carl,
the musical director for
Robert Schuller's Crystal
Cathedral. He killed him-
self a month before the
recording and I dedicated
the album to him. It has
songs that had more mean-
ing for me. It's music to
make you feel good. I was
fortunate to have Lea
Salonga, who starred in
"Ms. Saigon" sing with me
on some of the songs."
Now Mr. Rodriquez's
career is again moving
toward opera.
"I was asked to audition
for the Cincinnati Opera,"
he said, "and Placido talked
to me about 'The Girl of the
Golden West.' I am starting
to move into the world of
opera and to establish
myself as an opera singer. I
want people to recognize
me for the hard work I've
done."
The Lyric show has a little
bit of everything, he said.
"It's got some Broadway,
some Americana some
songs of faith,. some opera.
I want to give everyone
something to take home."
Daniel Rodriguez
appears at the Lyric The-
atre, 59 S.W. Flagler Ave.,
Stuart, on Dec. 28 for a 7
p.m. show. Tickets are $35
and $30; call the box office
at (772) 286-7827 or order
online at www.lyricthe-
atre.com.


setting up his Young Artist
program and the Mayor
helped arrange for me to
sing for him," Mr. Rodriguez
said. "I was invited to study
with him for three months.
It turned into a full year and
I took a leave from the Police
Department. I began devel-
oping my career, audition-
ing and concretizing."
Then came Sept. 11, 2001.
"It was the most horrific
day of my life," he said. "I
remember that it Was a love-

saw ashes from the first

but I made a lot of new ones.
I sang at so many funerals
and got to know a lot of peo-

Mr. Rodriguez, who offi-
cially retired from the NYPD
in 2004, went on to perform
at the 2002 Olympics, the
Tournament of Roses, for
the second inauguration of
President Bush and for
members of the Royal Fami-
ly of Monaco.
Still, his most memorable
performance is tied to Sept.
11.
"It was the first Yankee
game after 9/11," he said.
"The president threw out
the first pitch. That game
made it clear to the world
that we, as a city, and as a
country, would not be hid-
ing in caves. We could show
that we were resilient, get
past it and show we were

Captain Snyder is survived
by his younger brother, Evan
Frazer, who was also a theater
camper, his mother and
stepfather, Fran and Larry
Frazer of Fort Pierce and his
father and stepmother Joseph
and Cathy Snyder ofVero
Beach.
Gail Luchka, who with
her husband, John, is a
fixture at the Pineapple
Theatre, remembers both
of these special people.
"When Adam Snyder
was in our theater camp,
my daughter, Tabitha, was
camp counselor and I was
the mom helper; the kids
called me Mama Gail. At
12, Adam was a respectful,
funny, cute, lanky kid
topped off with wild red
hair. "Later, on stage in
"Life with Father," he had
that teen growth spur.
After the Military Academy
and Ranger-Airborne,
school, he came with a
friend to our home at a
Christmas gathering. He
was a handsome young
man with a great smile.
Adam had accomplished
so much. He was reserved
about it-proud, but
reserved. Adam's, life
touched so many people.
Any.death is hard, but war
makes no sense. This is so
hard for all of us.
"(It was hard) to lose
Wilma Cowles, too. She
was in her 90s and her
mind was still good, God
bless her. She was feisty
and has been missed since
she moved to Miami.
Wilma never really gave up
on the theater. She
couldn't drive and was in
an assisted living home in
Fort Pierce and would get
rides to the meetings.
When there, she'd keep the

For my Jewish readers,
belated Hanukkah wishes.
For Christmas dinner, I
never repeat the turkey
dinner. Recipes I have
given for rib roast, lamb,
lasagna, etc., are great
choices. Twvo more dinner
suggestions: fresh and
Virginia-style ham.
Everyone knows about
smoked ham, but not too
many people are familiar
with fresh ham, which is
simply a ham that has not
been smoked or cured. It is
less expensive than loin of
pork, lean and delicious.
When it comes to
Virginia ham, none, not
even the spiral sliced, can
compare with my late
husband's recipe. Smoked
hams are many times
about $1 a pound. If you
buy half a ham, buy a
shank half. You can have it
boned, but I prefer it bone
in.
Bruschetto is a superb
appetizer and since I use
my recipe for Tomatoes
Oreganata you must also
have that recipe. The
tomatoes must be red, ripe
and kissed with sunshine.
The only way you can get
great tomatoes is to buy
them from a vegetable
stand or grow them
yourself,
Have a blessed Christ-
mas and remember what

er to bone and tie it. Save
the bone for a special
occasion spaghetti sauce;
it adds great flavor.
If you have all of the skin
and most of the fat
trimmed you will have a
wonderful lean roast pork.
For a special treat, have
the butcher bone the meat
and leave the skin (rind)
on. The rind will become
crisp and delicious, but
* remember, it's loaded with
fat.
The recipe gives direc-
tions with the rind, but
will also work without the
rind.

Teen
From page B1 I


Rimes, who started per-
forming at her age, has
grown and still has her
head on straight.
To that end, she and her
mom are discussing where
she'll go to high school.
Lincoln Park Academy has
an excellent music and
drama department, but
Westwood has a good vet-
erinary and animal science
program and a football


team. She wants to pre-
pare for college and be
able to go to pep rallies,
too.
"I'm definitely going to
college," she said. "I told
my record label that I'm
going to school. It's my
dream. I still want to be
smart and go to college. If I
don't sing: anymore, you
can't do anything without
a college degree."


Jennifer Talles wonders,
as all parents do, if she's
made the right choices for
her daughter. When you
ask Jernie for the person
she most admires, you
know her mom's done
something's right.
"My mom is a single par-
ent who works two jobs,"
she says. "She helps keep
me grounded. She's very
protective. In the end, I


know I'll thank her for
helping me this way. She's
my idol."

Beware of holiday pet dangers


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

The holidays are a time
of cheer and celebration,
but with all that's merry
and bright, there are hid-
den dangers to your pets.
First, be tolerant of your
pet's unusual behavior.
There is no doubt your
routine may be altered and
some pets are sensitive to
that. You may be receiving
more package deliveries
than usual and people are
dropping by with greater
frequency. The change in
your family's lifestyle can
cause a behavioral change
in your pets.
Try and be careful with


holiday treats.. Rich fatty
table scraps and bones
can be harmful or toxic to
pets. Bones can splinter
and cause great distress
or injury to your pet's
digestive tract.. Never give
an alcoholic beverage to
an animal, it can cause
severe illness or death.
Keep pets on a regular

Area soccer teams


kick it to next level

But St. Lucie West Centennial girls'
soccer team comes up just short
against St. Edwards


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
Something had to give.
The St. Lucie West Cen-
tennial and St. Edward's
girls' soccer teams both
came into their Nov. 30
encounter undefeated. The
Eagles had registered nine
shutouts in a row en route
to a 9-0-1 record.
The Pirates brought an
impressive mark as well,
going 5-0-1 to open the sea-
son.
Unlike most matchups
that fail to live up to the
hype, the contest gave
ample evidence as to why
both schools are con-
tenders for a state title, as
St. Edward's outlasted Cen-
tennial 1-0.
"That was one of the
most intense games I've
ever played in my life," St.
Edward's striker Aubrey
Greene said. "We all played
our hearts out.
"It was a great feeling. We
knew we beat a great team."
Greene is one of the rea-
sons why the Pirates
remain the lone area team
without a loss. The junior
has scored 25 goals, includ-
ing three in St. Edward's lat-
est win, a 4-2 decision over
Merritt Island Christian.
The victory put St. Edward's
at 9-0-2 overall and 4-0-1 in
District 12-1A.
"It's been a great season,"
Greene said. "I'm just so,
happy."
On the contrary, most
opposing' coaches have
been less than thrilled to
see Greene on the field. She
has excelled throughout the
season, as evidenced by her
consistent play. After being
held scoreless in St.
Edward's 1-1 tie with state
power Orangewood Christ-
ian, Greene had two goals-
in the Pirates first win of
the season,, a 7-0 blanking
of Florida Air Academy.
She scored three more
and added two assists, as
St. Edward's tallied another
shutout, this time an 8-0
win over First Academy.
"She's very confident with


the ball," St. Edward's
coach Jeff Lamscha said.
"She's a classic striker -
she thinks of finishing the
goal."
Greene continued her
torrid pace with a then sea-
son-high four goals, as well
as an assist in the team's 5-0
win over Holy Trinity Epis-
copal.
, "I work really well with
the team," Greene said.
"I'm just enjoying it. I've
having a lot of fun.
"This is the best combi-
nation of girls I've ever
played with."

blessed with a plethora of
places to escape to for a
couple of days of golf and
relaxation. Wanting to treat
my better half to a special
weekend, I chose an
exceptional place.
The Inn on Fifth in
downtown Naples, an
elegant boutique hotel
complete with its own spa,
signature restaurants,
fitness center and a dazzling


pool was my choice. Judging
from my wife's wonderful
mood, I choose well.
Located in the heart of old
Naples, the Inn on Fifth isn't
close to everything, it's the
centerpiece of it. This lavish
hotel was originally a bank
building built in the late
1940s. In 1998, work was
completed to turn the 50-
year-old building into a
hotel fashioned in the spirit

A s you read this, I hope
that you and your
oved ones are
enjoying the very best of
this holiday season.
However, if Santa hap-
pened to miss your house
this year, or you wound up
with a lump of coal instead
of that new putter, I have
just the gift with which to
treat yourself.
Here in Florida, we are


of popular 1920s Palm
Beach architect, Addison
Mizener.
Elegantly decorated for
Christmas, the inn not only
attracted plenty of guests,
the weekend we stayed
there, but locals and other
tourists dropped in to enjoy
the beautiful tree, orna-
ments and flowers beauti-
fully arranged to celebrate
the season.
The inn features 87 rooms
offering an assortment of
views from the sparkling
pool and courtyard to
fabulous Fifth Avenue.
There are also oversized
suites with walkout bal-
conies, Jacuzzis, Italian
marble baths and separate
living rooms. Each room
comes decorated in rich,
relaxing tones and classic
European art.
The doors open to a
celebrated collection of
upscale boutiques, shops,
gourmet restaurants,
sidewalk cafes and art
galleries. Just a short, sunny,
five-block stroll away is the
white sand beaches of the
Gulf of Mexico. Everything
needed to enjoy a relaxing
stay is within a stone's throw
of your room.
After enjoying the sunset
and a hand-in-hand stroll
along the beach, we found


the best place for an
evening of casual dining
and lively entertainment to
be McCabe's Irish Pub and
Grill on the first floor of the
inn. The pub offers great
food, cold draft beers from
around the world, live
music and one-of-a-kind
ambiance. It is easily the
most popular spot on Fifth
Avenue for a fun evening.
After taking care to see
that the love of my life was
being properly pampered by
the inn's superb staff, it was
time for me to play golf.
The inn offers several golf
packages that include many
of the courses in the Naples
area. My course of choice-
was Hammock Bay Golf &
Country Club between

downtown Naples and
Marco Island.
Designed by PGA and
Champions Tour star Peter
Jacobsen and his partner,
renowned designer Jim
Hardy, Hammock Bay is
truly a spectacular golf
experience.
The course, developed by
WCI Communities, features
one of the highest golf
course elevations in south-
west Florida and was named
one of the top 10 new
private courses in the world
when it opened in 2004.
Golfers at Hammock Bay
experience a variety of
environments, as the course
winds through rolling
terrain, natural dunes,
native lakes, mangroves and
beach-like areas.
"We set out to create a
memorable golf experience
at Hammock Bay and the
finished product has, frankly,
surpassed our own expecta-
tions," said Mr. Jacobsen.
I found the course
immensely enjoyable.
Jacobsen and Hardy's design
offers a constant variation in
difficulty, taking full advan-
tage of the unique environ-
ment and forcing golfers to
use nearly every club in their
bag as they travel the course.
The diverse visual experi-
ence brought on by the
contrast between the white
sand and shells, and the
fairways and greens, along
with the elevation changes
and mangroves, provides a
most beautiful setting for
great golf.
Hammock Bay's signature
hole may be the shortest hole
on the course. The par-3 11th
is visually spectacular with
native grasses, shell rock and
sand framing the elevated
green. Depending on the
wind and pin location, the
hole can play as much as 40
yards different from one day
to the next.

your stocking or just to give
yourself a well deserved

Fifth at www.innonfifth.com

From page B1,7


The good times contin-
ued as Greene scored three
more goals while adding an
assist in the team's 6-0 vic-
tory over Summit Christian.
The win moved St. Edward's
to 4-0-1 on the season.
In a season already
becoming filled with magi-
cal moments, Greene -
who had 19 goals last sea-
son had perhaps her
defining game of the young
campaign. Taking on Mer-
ritt Island Christian at
home, the 17-year-old
scored five times while
assisting on another in the
Pirates' 9-2 win.
"Slie's fearless," Lamscha
said. "She's not afraid to
-take on people one on one."
While not as seasoned as
Greene, Katlyn Snow has
played a major role in Cen-
tennial's fast start out of the
gate. She scored a goal in
the Eagles' 7-0 win over
Palm Beach Gardens to
improve to 4-0-1.
"I didn't play over the
'summer," Snow said. "I did-
n't think I'd get back (on
Irack) so fast."
SThe junior led all scorers
with two goals, as Centen-
nial pitched its nine con-
secutive shutout, winning
13-0 over Palm Beach
.Lakes. The victory gave the
Eagles the best start in the
program's 10-year history.
"I was hoping for it,"
'Snow said. "When it first
'started, I was kind of nerv-
ous. I'm very happy how it's
'turned out.
"I thought we could do
'it."
' Like the rest of her team-
,mates, Snow was under-
standably disappointed to
see the team's winning
streak stop with the loss to
'St. Edward's.
"It was very frustrating,"
Snow said. "They scored off
,a free kick. Everyone was
upset since it was our first
loss."
Snow and her teammates
quickly rebounded, shut-
ting out an up-and-coming
Sebastian River team 4-0.
The 16-year-old had a goal
in the much-needed win.
- "It doesn't matter if we
lose," Snow said. "Our team
gets through everything.
Our team :is strong enough.
"We just keep our hopes


up. There are other teams
out there that are probably
better than us so we just try
harder."
The team's work ethic
seems without question, as
its mark of 12-1-2 will
attest.
"We bond really well,"
Snow said. "The team
encourages each other.
"I've had good games and
I've had off games, but it's
the team that helps me."
Greene feels the same
way, looking to her team-
mates for support, espe-
cially her sister senior Lyn-
dal.
"I've been playing with
her since I was 5," Greene
said. "I don't know what I'm
going to next year when she
leaves.
"My teammates have all.
been sisters. They've all
been there for me."
