County set to lay

Initiatives cut
budget shortfall
from $30 million
to $15 million

BY SAMANTHA JOSEPH
Staff writer
ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
Six employees of the coun-
ty's building department
will be out of work by the
end of the first week of
March.
The layoffs come as part
of efforts to cut spending
to make up for a $30 mil-
lion budget shortfall, said
county manager Doug
Anderson.
Administrators have had


some success in address-
ing the deficit, which had
dropped to $15 million by
late last week, thanks in
part to several strategies,
including setting aside a
little more than $5 million
in the last budget in antici-
pation of a deficit this year,
selling a rescue helicopter
and cutting back on equip-
ment purchases, he said.
But a marked decline in
permit applications will
lead to employee cuts over
the next few days.
In Port St. Lucie alone,
the number of building
permits issued for single-
family homes has fallen 59
percent since 2005,

Sixth-graders consider

officials are used to dis-
cussing the impact their
decisions could have on
the younger generation.
But what happens when
those officials have the
opportunity to share their
thoughts with the younger
generation?
A panel of experts found


out on Feb. 21, when they
met with a total of 95
sixth-grade students from
Southern Oaks Middle
School's "Talons" team in
two sessions at Oxbow
Ecological Center in Port
St. Lucie. The panel dis-
cussed the city's plans to
build a third east-west
corridor bridge over the
St. Lucie River.
The Talons, through a
joint program between


their school and Oxbow,
are learning about St.
Lucie County's ecosys-
tems, along, with the
impact that water quality
has on their daily lives.
"In preparation for this
panel, the students looked
at engineering power

PORT ST. LUCIE St.
Lucie County Sheriff Ken
Mascara wants to be pre-
pared for a parent's worst
nightmare.
Sheriff Mascara con-
ducted a training exercise
on Feb. 18 at Treasure
Coast High School, re-cre-
ating a scene in which gun-
men are loose on campus.
It was chillingly realistic.
And that was exactly what
Mascara was after.
"When we do these
drills, it's as real as it gets,"
he said.
The Sheriff's Office train-
ing exercises took place
when the high school was
closed for President's Day.
Thirty deputies were
involved in two school-
shooting re-enactments,
with half of them securing
the perimeter of the school
grounds and the other half
responding to the emer-
gency calls. The respond-
ing deputies were the only


participants who were act-
ing without a script, so
when the "shooting"
began, they had no idea
where to find the two gun-
men on campus, played by
fellow deputies carrying
guns loaded with blanks.
Playing the part of
school students and vic-
tims were approximately
30 members of the Sheriff's
Explorer Post 400, who
were briefed before the
drills began.
"They received ad lib
instructions on how to be
good actors," said Sgt.
Andy McIntosh, who over-
sees the training staff for
the Sheriff's Office.
Jesse Fox, 17, a student at
For Pierce Westwood High
School, participated in the
mock shooting.
"I was one of the
hostages taken. I died," he
said. "All the fire alarms
were going off. It was pretty
wild."

WRIGLEY'S GUM ENDORSED BY ADA
Q: Is it true that the American Dental Association has endorsed a chewing gum?
A: Yes. For the first time ever, the american Dental Association has given its Seal of
Acceptance to a chewing gum. Wrigley's Orbit, Extra and Eclipse sugar-free chewing
gums are the products that have won the well-trusted ADA seal. The gums are
clinically proven to help fight cavities, strengthen teeth and reduce the build-up of
plaque, the filmy residue that harbors bacteria The seal means the ADA believes the "
products contribute to the maintenance of good oral health. '
The ADA awarded the seal after analyzing nearly 20 years worth of independent.. -i'
scientific research that included both clinical and laboratory studies on the effects of chewing these
sugar-free products. The ADA's Council on Scientific Affairs conducted the analysis.
The seal on the Wrigley's products, said ADA Executive Director Dr. James B. Branson, means people c
should know that chewing the gum is "doing more for their oral health than just freshening their
breath." Branson said the products meet the ADA's criteria for safety and effectiveness and provide oral
health benefits, chewing these products, or course, is still no substitute for brushing and flossing twice a'
day and visiting your dentist regularly.

New Republican candidate

Staff writer
St. Lucie County Republi-

woman Diane Lents has
entered the race for the
District 5 seat on the coun-
ty commission board.
She joins fellow Republi-

chairwoman of the Plan-

The candidate who wins
the Republican primary
will have to face with the
current seat holder, Chris
Craft, who announced that
he would seek to retain the
office.
Mr. Craft is the only
Democrat in the race so far.

remind Tallahassee that we
need more of a tax break.
We need to write a budget
and stick to it," Ms. Lents
said in announcing her
candidacy.
For Mr. Craft, one of the
key issues is changing the
way that the county man-
ages growth.
"I set out a couple goals
*to begin with at the start of
my term, and have been
part of some of the most
important land-use
changes in the county's his-
tory, if not the state's," he
said.
Among his priorities are
issues involving environ-
ment protection, including
landfills and seeking alter-
native energy sources.
But Ms. Lents, a 35-year
banker and branch manag-
er of Seacoast National
Bank, is running on a plat-
form of tax reduction,
attracting high-paying jobs,
tightening the county's
budget and 'smart growth
that protects the environ-
ment.
"We must protect our
quality of life, not by
restricting or discouraging
growth, but by planning,
growth smartly and in a
way that is friendly and
respectful of our environ-
ment," Ms. Lents said.
The candidate is making
a strong push for tax cuts
and fiscal responsibility.
"Government has low-
ered our taxes, but not
nearly enough, and I am
tired of hearing the scare
tactics that jobs will be
eliminated and emergency
services cut. These politi-
cians need to do their jobs
and streamline government
to make it more efficient.
They need to stop wasting
taxpayer's money," she said.

She added, "I have writ-
ten budgets and stuck to
them. That's what we need
to do in (St. Lucie County)
- do the hard work and
make decisions that are
tough."
Also willing to confront
the difficult issues is Mr.
Craft, who's at of the center
of the controversial propos-
al to bring wind turbines to
the county.
"We're going to continue
to have the difficult conver-
sations. We're not shying
away from them," he
pledged to constituents.
"No matter what form of
energy you look at, there's a
negative side to it. We have
to be willing to have discus-
sions on these difficult
issues. Whether or not we
adopt them is a different
issue."
Critics have challenged
Mr. Craft's stance on the
turbines and his support
for placing them on conser-
vation land.
But --he has responded
that he serves no special
interest groups, and that
the issue of finding alterna-
tive energy sources is
important for the people of
St. Lucie County.
'While some may choose
to squash debate, I'm obli-
gated to represent all voices.
in this community, and I
will continue to listen,
respect and respond to
those who wish to partici-
pate in the discussion," he
said in a press release
announcing his bid for re-
election.

From page Al
whole premise is to pre-
pare them for a debate on
the bridge's impact to the
infrastructure of the city,
both environmentally and
economically."
After hearing from the
panel, the students will
form teams and debate
whether the city should
build the bridge using the
route known as IC, con-
necting West Virginia Drive
to Village Green Drive, the
preferred route of the city.
The debates are expected
to take place Feb. 29 at the
school.
The panel that addressed
the students at Oxbow
included Vice Mayor Jack
Kelly; County Commis-
sioner Doug Coward; City
Engineer Walter England;
John P Krane, Director of
Transportation and Plan-
ning for the engineering
consultant firm Keith and
Schnars; Indian Riverkeep-
er Kevin Stinnette and St.
Lucie County Sheriff Chief
Deputy Garry Wilson.
Mr. England spoke first,
providing the students
with a brief history of Port
St. Lucie.
"We've grown signifi-
cantly since those early
days," said Mr. England. "I
made a prediction in the
year 2000 that by 2007, Port
St. Lucie Boulevard would
fail. That's what we have
today. We have a failing
level of service. All of you
know when you get an F on
your report card what that
means. The streets are
graded the same way, and
what that means is we've
reached parking lot condi-
tions and congestion on
our streets and no one can
go anywhere."
Mr. England showed the
children a map with the
location of the 1C route,
telling them the bridge is
subject to a Project Devel-
opment and Environment
study in order to obtain the
necessary permits to build
it.


Mr. Krane then explained
that Keith and Schnars was
hired to do the PD&E study
that required the identifi-
cation of social, natural
and physical environ-
ments, the grading of sev-
eral possible routes for the
bridge and then narrowing
those down to the three
best corridors, which were
determined to be 1C, 6A
and 2A.
To accomplish that, they
studied the impact each
route would have on the
surrounding wetlands,
wildlife and habitats, as
well as the impact on
noise, air and water quali-
ty, along with social and
economic factors.
The recommendation of
those three possible routes
are expected to be includ-
ed in an Environmental
Impact Statement, which
Mr. Krane described as "a
document we would sub-
mit to the Federal Highway
Administration. to secure
the permits" necessary to
build the bridge.
Vice Mayor Kelly spoke
to the students next.
"This river belongs to
everyone," he said. "It
belongs to all of you, it
belongs to me and it
belongs to the kids that
you're going to have some-
day. You can buy all the
cars you want and buy
houses, but we .can't
replace this natural gift
that God gave us in our
city. This is one of our
greatest assets. It also is a
problem because we can't
get across it."
Mr. Kelly agreed that the
state must look at the
social, environmental and
economic issues before
deciding which one of the
three routes should go
across the river.
"We're going to try and
build this in a way that will
impact the environment as
little as we can," he said.
He also explained to the
students what he meant by
the social aspects of each
possible bridge route.
Pointing at route 6A on a
map, Mr. Kelly said, "If we

Crosstown Parkway bridge across the St. Lucie River.


go up here, we've got to
displace about 25 more
homes (than with IC), plus
a whole bunch of commer-
cial property and maybe go
through an adult park for
people over 55, and we'd
have to take their homes,
too. We would have to dis-
place a lot more people,
plus we'd have to buy more
property and this would
cost your tax-paying family
up to $25 million more."
Pointing at route 2A,
which would connect West
Virginia Drive with Walton
Road, Mr. Kelly said,
"Down here we would have
to replace up to 75 homes;
people who never planned
to move."
Mr. Kelly said route 1C
was the route the city
planned to use froi the
beginning.
"For 30 years it was
planned this way. Every-
body knew; the people that
we would have to buy
houses from knew that this
could happen someday,"
he said.
However, Mr. Kelly said
the environmental factor
associated with 1C was as
cut and dry.
"I will acquiesce and tell
you, and Mr. Stinnett will
tell you, that this is the
most damaging to the envi-
ronment. And he's right."
Mr. Kelly told the stu-
dents that there was an


economic advantage to
route 1C, as the road would
stop at the Civic Center, "so
it will be easier for people
to shop and go downtown."
In addition, he pointed
out that the 1C route,
because it would end at Vil-
lage Green Drive, would
provide a faster route to St.
Lucie Medical Center, criti-
cal in an emergency situa-
tion.
"So that's the social, eco-
nomic and environmental
aspects that I want you to
consider when you go back
and debate," said Mr. Kelly.
County Commissioner
Doug Coward followed Mr.
Kelly on the panel. He
explained that because the
Crosstown Parkway was a
city project, his role as a
county commissioner was
"more of a secondary role."
"One of those roles was
to work with Jack and the
city to help advocate for
the referendum which the
voters approved in Port St..
Lucie to bond the tax
money for the city to actu-
ally build this project. In
addition to that, I sit on
what's called the Trans-
portation Planning Organi-
zation, which is the com-
mittee that deals with how
to expend dollars on vari-
ous transportation proj-
ects."

Reading tutor charged
with sexual battery on student

Anthony J. Tripoli, 68, of 238 S.E. Village Drive in Port
St. Lucie, has been charged with sexual battery on a child
under 12, a felony.
He was supposed to be tutoring an 8-year-old girl in
reading.
Instead, police say, he took advantage of his time
alone with her and began touching her inappropriately
over the course of several months.
Mr. Tripoli was a volunteer for St. Lucie County Big
Brothers Big Sisters and was assigned as a reading tutor
to Morningside Elementary School. He had been tutor-
ing the alleged victim for several.months when she told
her mother that Mr. Tripoli had touched her in the vagi-
na and that this had occurred during the majority of the
tutoring sessions. The last incident occurred on Feb. 11.
After the arrest, the school district released a state-
ment that stated, "The St. Lucie County School District is
stunned and deeply saddened at the allegations involv-
ing a volunteer at one of our schools. We are cooperating
fully with law enforcement authorities investigating the
situation."
At press time, Mr. Tripoli remained incarcerated in St.
Lucie County Jail.

Driver charged with trying,
to run over three people

Port St. Lucie police say city resident Stephanie
Bird, 48, was "in a rage" when she was behind the
wheel of her 1999 Toyota Corolla on Feb. 18, just after
11 p.m.
According to an arrest affidavit, she made two sepa-
rate attempts to hit and run over three people who
were in front of a residence in the 1000 block of
Southwest Aswan Avenue in Port St. Lucie.
Police reported that on each attempt, Ms. Bird
intentionally struck a Chevrolet pick-up truck owned
by one of the victims so hard that it pushed the truck
from the roadway.
All three victims reportedly tried to get out of the
way. Two were pinned between Ms. Bird's vehicle and
the truck, while the third was struck by Ms. Bird's car,
tossing him over, the hood of her car and into the
windshield before rolling off the car and onto the
road. He suffered "road rash" on his back, arms and
legs, according to the police report, and was treated
on the scene by Fire Rescue.
Damage to the truck was estimated to be $2,500.
Ms. Bird has been charged with reckless driving and
three counts of aggravated assault. The latter charges
are felonies.
Ms. Bird was arrested at the scene. At press time,
she remained in St. Lucie County Jail on $105,000
bond.

need to protect the envi-
ronment, provide an ade-
quate transportation sys-
tem and also consider and
protect the residents, par-
ticularly those who may
have their homes taken in
the process? That's going to
be a difficult issue for you
to grapple with," he told
the students.
When Mr. Stinnett spoke
next, he explained to the
students his role as Indian
Riverkeeper.
"My job is to take care of
that river so that you can
have fish, a place to recre-
ate, clean water which
comes from, our wetlands,
and so that someday if you
have kids and then they
have kids, they'll have a
resource like this," he said.
Mr. Stinnett told the
sixth-graders the issue is
more than one of taking an
acre or two to build a
bridge.
"There are also issues
about how what's around it
is going to be managed and
how the water that falls on
those areas is going to
move into the river."
Mr. Stiinett told the stu-
dents the city of Port St.
Lucie has "painted them-
selves into a corner" by
starting the Crosstown
Parkway project before
having the permits to build
the bridge over the St.
Lucie River.
"They've got a problem
with this, if somebody
decides this is a really bad
idea and wants to chal-
lenge it," he said. "So what
we at Indian Riverkeeper
are hoping is that they'll
really walk a tight rope and
pick the least damaging
route to the environment."
Mr. Stinnette agreed that
Port St. Lucie Boulevard
deserved a grade of F.


"But destroying a lot of
wetland is not really going
to fix the F in the problem,"
he said. "It might make it
better for a little while, but
I've lived in Florida for 50
years and I've seen it. You
think, 'Oh boy, this road is
almost .done, we'll be able
to whiz to the mall or get to
school really fast.' You can,
for a few months, and then
it's just as congested as it
always was."
Chief Deputy Wilson said
his purpose in participat-
ing on the panel was to
answer the students' ques-
tions with respect to public
safety, law enforcement
and fire protection. He told
the students that, although
there will be a hospital in
the western part of the city
some day, St. Lucie Med-
ical Center is currently the
only one in Port St. Lucie,
and the only way to reach it
from western Port St. Lucie
is via Prima Vista or Port St.
Lucie boulevards..
"Now I've been in Port St.
Lucie 25 years and I have
seen a. lot of changes in
that time," said Chief
Deputy Wilson. "When I
moved here, there were
only 18,000 people. Mr.
Kelly will tell you today
there are 165,000 people
that live here. That's going
to have an impact on the
ability of public safety."
Chief Wilson told the
students he, too, under-
stood that all steps must
be taken to protect the
environment. And he had
another concern shared by
the Indian Riverkeeper.
"I agree with Mr. Stin-
nette when he says there
will be a period of time
when that road is going to
become congested, and
there is going to be talk
about future bridges
across this river," he said.

Kudos to high school play

Congratulations to those involved with Port St. Lucie
High School's performance of 'Beauty and the Beast' was
absolutely fabulous.

Bikers are not that bad

The police are not afraid of bikers. In fact, many people in
law enforcement are bikers, as are many other groups of
fine people like Veterans Clubs etc.
When you see a group of bikers at a bar, it is usually for a
beer and a meal. They are not there trying to get drunk, it
doesn't mesh well with riding among inadequate motorists.
We do tend to park our expensive hobby on sidewalks at
shopping centers when able. This is again to protect our
investment from inadequate motorists. If you see a person
riding without a helmet, he or she must have medical insur-
ance coverage to do so. We are not the 'wild bunch' that you
think we are. You are a much greater threat to us on the
road. If you see us driving a little over the speed limit or
passing you with authority, it is a self-defense mechanism
on our behalf.
As with every group, there are exceptions to the rules, so if
you come across a guy named Bones with lots of skulls on
his wardrobe you right just want to compliment him on
his executive parking spot and go about your own business.
At the same time, this is the guy you would not want your
daughter bringing home... but would be the first American
at your side should you run into any real danger in the park-
ing lot.

Buying foreign cars is not non-patriotic

What the person that wrote 'foreign car buyers responsi-
ble for unemployment costs' doesn't understand is the fact
that many of the foreign cars on U.S. roads today were built
in the U.S. by American workers, and not in a foreign coun-
try by foreign workers.
Toyota has been building vehicles here for more than 20
years, and the 8-year old Nissan I drive was built in Ten-
nessee. Your comment about quality is way off. I've owned
several American automobiles including Ford, Chevy and
Pontiac and they couldn't hold a candle to the quality and
reliability of the Honda or the Nissans I've owned. And as
far as styling goes, the dash of a Ford Ranger hasn't changed
in 10 years.

Churchgoer was wrong

To the person who ranted against the Catholic Church
sticking to rules; The Mass didn't end when you received
Communion.


(014d


The back door is how you should have exited. It is much
more fitting for your pitiful departure. It's just too, too bad
that you would have had to walk some extra steps to your
car.
Why should you be forced to stay the entire time?
Because the Mass wasn't over!
Your non sequitur about controversy with the Catholic
Church and making people stay is a little baffling. One has
nothing to do with the other.
The "controversy" arises because so-called Catholics do
not want to adhere to Catholic teaching.
Your church is not a prison. You can avoid being "forced"
to stay by not going to Mass at all.
You're not kidding... it's a disgrace... but the disgrace, dear
writer, is yours because you insist on flaunting your disre-
spect of the Mass by leaving before Mass is over, for not
wanting to leave by a less conspicuous door, for not having
the common decency to wait for the priest to give the final
blessing (of course, you don't need it), or the common cour-
tesy to let the priest go out before you.
Wouldn't you be happier in another religion?

McCain is not a good choice

I know only one person who voted for Mr. McCain, one
who voted for Mr. Huckabee and many who voted for Rom-
ney. I do not understand where the 'McCain momentum'.
comes from. With his record I cannot support him. I may
not even be willing to vote for him in November, even
though it would mean a Mr. Obama or Mrs. Clinton victory.
I fear either of the Democrats becoming president
because their respective minority statuses would grant
them instant historical standing as the 'first.'
I do not fear a minority president, but would prefer that
should someone be immortalized as 'first,' the distinction
be reserved for one of the many qualified conservative
Republicans who happen to be black or female.


Mr. McCain is a different story. For far too long we have
been content to give our votes to the best of two bad choic-
es. I think that, over time, this waters down what it means to
be a conservative Republican and convinces the party lead-
ership that the candidate to back is the one who is 'elec-
table.'
In reality, the candidate who is electable is the one who
shares core beliefs with the electorate, not one at the fore-
front of a movement, which 70 percent of the population
vehemently opposed only six months ago, and certainly not
the one who:
1. Flirted with leaving the Republican Party in 2001 until
Jim Jeffords stole his thunder.
2. Courted John Kerry in 2004, seeking to be his running
mate against George W. Bush.
3. Said that John Kerry would be a good-president.
4. Said that Hillary Clinton wouldfbe a good president.
5. Slandered the American-people who dared question his
radical McCain-Kennedy immigration bill.
6. Restricted free speech with McCain-Feingold.
7. Routinely swears at Republican colleagues in the Sen-
ate.
.... and so on, and so on.
I believe that the best way to ensure that the GOP put for-
ward consistent, strong conservatives is for McCain to get
historically low turnout among Republicans. We must send
a message. High turnout for Mr. McCain, though it might
only be votes against Mrs. Clinton or Mr. Obama, will be
seen as approval of his agenda and do permanent damage
to the conservative movement.
Now with Mr. Romney out of the race, we will likely see
Mr. McCain, Mrs. Clinton or Mr. Obama win in November.
Oh well. We tried. Hopefully all of this is a lesson learned
for 2012.

Dear Editor,

Susan M. Parry continues her crusade to
negate the need for the Humane Society of
St. Lucie County new building fund drive.
We concur that spaying and neutering will
ultimately reduce the numbers of unwanted
pets. We will support that program.
To that end, all animals adopted from the
Humane Society of St. Lucie County are now
spayed, neutered, microchipped, and vacci-
nated as part for our S.A.V.E programs. Sub-
sidized low cost of free spaying will be made
available to the public as support programs
afe finalized.
As desirable as these programs are, it is
obvious that their beneficial results are not
going to happen over night.
There will be plenty of unwanted animals
turned in to Florida humane shelters for
some time to come. The surrender reasons
range from the large number of families cur-
rently facing foreclosure, downsizing senior
lifestyles, relocation necessitated by the
need of finding employment or even indi-
rectly the impact of television shows such as
the Westminster Dog Show.
Our existing shelter is now 50-years-old. It
is scheduled to be demolished in the not too
distant future as part of an already govern-
ment-approved nearby botanical garden
expansion program.


The shelter needs massive improvements
to house existing animals in a comfortable,
hurricane-resistant, disease free environ-
ment and to efficiently deploy staff and
medical resources. The public needs a pet
friendly hurricane shelter for pets. Humane
education for young people is a must if we
are to stop this cycle of indifference.
The funding for that facility will need
plenty of private support. It will take time to
generate the necessary support and plan-
ning for this project. A key gift had enabled
us to start this process. All facilities available
to the public, whether a library, school or
hospital, need to be safe, attractive, and
functional.
It is not acceptable to say that because a
health program will reduce disease it will
therefore make hospitals redundant.
The revenues from city and county con-
tracts to house stray animals are determined
by the number of animals delivered to us by
animal control agencies.
If the new licensing ordinance dramati-
cally reduces the number of strays
impounded, then the amounts paid by these
contracts will also be automatically
reduced. Contract revenues are only a part.
of our budget, a considerable portion is sup-
plemented by donors and fundraising
events. At the same time the Humane Soci-
ety of St. Lucie County is a proper nonprofit


charitable agency, not a government depart-
ment.
The funds generated by donations are
used to support kindness to animals,
including those turned in as strays. The sup-
port is directed and determined by mem-
ber/donors, a responsible unpaid board of
directors and not by zealots or individual
critics.
Further, if a donor chooses to leave a
bequest to benefit animals or build a shelter
after a lifetime of saving or working, it is that
donor's right to specify how their bequest is
to be used without interference from an out-
sider.
It is everyone's right to throw bricks at
those in the trenches, but buying a brick for
a long overdue shelter might be kinder solu-
tion.

Frank Andrew
Executive Directoi; St. Lucie County
Humane Society

A response from Ms. Parry

While I continue to "crusade" for respon-
sible use of our tax dollars, donation dollars
and real answers to our local pet overpopu-
lation problem that results in thousands of
innocent animals being given lethal injec-
tions yearly, the Humane Society of St. Lucie


County "crusades," with great zeal I might
add, to spend multi-millions on relocating
and building a new facility that has yet to be
proven truly necessary.
As a matter of fact,' my information sup-
ports a different conclusion; the Humane
Society of St. Lucie County may want a new
facility but does not need one.
The executive director of the Humane
Society states in his letter that moving and
building a new shelter 'is part of an already
government approved botanical garden
expansion program.'
Really?
Mayor Benton clearly stated at a city com-
mission 'meeting that the Humane Society
did not have to move; that there is no 'emi-
nent domain' taken by the city as was adver-
tised in a recent Humane Society newsletter,
that Heathcote (Botanical Gardens) would
have to build around the shelter, that the
city is .not moving Public Works and the
Humane Society is good there for years.'
Does this sound remotely like govern-
ment approved?
Well, that should eliminate that reason for
relocating and building a new facility but....
The executive director also states that
they need a new building because it is 50-
years-old and needs massive improve-

From page A6
What happened to the Post Office?
Ahhh, to those days of yester year when out of the past... I
regress. There was a time when there was a penny post card
and for a few cents more you were able to send a first class
letter anywhere in the U.S.A.
What has happened? If the service has gotten better, con-
sidering inflation into the equation, the Post
Office might be a viable means to communicate. It is no
longer the case.
I dearly love Audrey who faithfully delivers my mail. She
has been on the job for over 30 years. If the Post Office went
out of business tomorrow, she would be rewarded for her
service. The problem is that this monopoly is putting itself
out of business. Junk mail, and some who use letters, and
packages will not sustain that which isn't viable. FedEx and
e-mail is more efficient.
Let us look at the progress made in the past century. In the
60s, I could mail a letter from Los Angeles to the east coast
for less than a dime. It took two to three days for delivery.
Today it will soon cost 42 cents. Is the service better? No! It
has gotten worse. My credit card company is in Omaha,
Neb. It takes eight days for correspondence.
The Post Office touts better sorting equipment. The sort-
ing should be in eliminating an extinct service.

No insurance, no service

I recently had the bad luck of getting sick with no medical
insurance. Not that I choose to be without insurance, with
all the skyrocketing taxes, home insurance, etc. I cannot
afford medical insurance.
I'm sure I fall within a very large majority of people who
live and work very hard just to keep my house out of foreclo-
sure.
I started feeling sick one evening, but hoped it would go
away as I knew I could not afford the ambulance ride or the
emergency room costs. The next morning I was substantial-
ly worse. I went to my local emergency walk-in clinic to
avoid the large hospital charges. After waiting my turn, the
doctor took one look at me and ordered me to the emer-
gency room ASAP but not before I stopped and paid his bill.
Once at the emergency room, I was fast tracked to a bed
and given the necessary tests, which showed I needed emer-
gency surgery. Time flew after that, and within a few hours I
was cut, sewn and in a hospital room. I found out that my
illness had been a bit more serious than originally thought,
and my system would take some time to recover. That being
said, I spent the next seven days on a clear liquid diet, in
fact, until I was released to go home.
During that time, I found the nurses and staff to be a won-
derful asset to the facility, but the facility itself was pretty
scary. At one point, a woman was wheeled into my room,
intake done and she was left for the better part of the day.
When the evening shift came on, the nurse was shocked
by the woman being allowed into the room I occupied, as
she had a major staph infection... something someone just
out of surgery should not be subjected to.
She immediately had her removed. As I began to get more
mobile, I realized that no one had been in to change the
sheets on my bed, nor clean the bathroom for the last three
days.
At that point, there had been a few different people in that
room. For the entire seven days that I remained there, the


bathroom was never cleaned, even when requests were
made. The same dirty towels that were in there when I
arrived were still there when I left.
To make matters worse, the day prior to discharge, I began
to itch. Lo and behold, I was covered in some type of rash or
bug bites. Not to worry, I was told, they would go away in
time.
It was time to finally go home. I was not feeling too well,
but ready to go, and I found out my doctor had forgotten to
order the antibiotics necessary for my time after surgery,
and the entire time I was in the hospital.
So, I finally go home, covered in blotches and spots, but
not covered for infection or disease. As the days went on, I
was feeling no better and had developed a large lump near
an incision site.
I called the surgeons office and was told by the nurse that
it was probably just a hematoma, albeit the size of a tennis
ball, and notto worry, it would go away sooner or later. I
reminded her that I take hormone replacement-and aspirin
therapy due to a tendency of blood clots not too worry she
says.
A day or two later, still running a slight fever and feeling
miserable, unable to even touch my skin, I called the Doc-
tor's office again. I again was told not to worry, it would go
away sooner or later, and they would see me at my appoint-
ment in approximately three weeks. Needless to say, I was
not healing in a way I thought should be. I again called the
doctor and was reluctantly told to come in, but could I bring
in the full payment as I did not have insurance.
Doesn't everyone have a few thousand lying around?
After arriving, the doctor was a bit upset that I had not
been seen at an earlier date, nor had anyone bothered to
send for my records some time later, especially since I had
called with problems three or four times prior. Upon
examination, he wanted immediate CAT scans and other
tests to be done. I was feeling quite miserable and a lot
scared at that point, and was turned over to an extremely
rude young girl to set up the appointments. The first thing
she said was that I would have to pay everything up front
and in cash if I expected to have this work done. She then
called the Imaging Group and the hospital and, with an
extremely bad attitude, told them I had no insurance, and
no money to pay up front, knowing I had just spent a week
in the hospital. She talked to me and looked at me as if I
was the scum of the earth. I was sick, tired and scared and
she just snickered and asked me what I expected if I could-
n't pay. Both facilities then refused to see me or provide
services. I started to cry, which made her snicker even
harder. She made me feel like I was one of the lowest of life
forms.
I left feeling completely depressed and feeling sorry for
all of us who cannot afford the costs of medical insurance.
I had hoped that the next day I would receive a call saying
that they had found a way to at least do some of the emer-
gency tests, but no. I called her back and again, she
. laughed no money no service and hung up. I guess
those of us who cannot afford insurance have become
expendable. If we can't pay- just let us die.
Something needs to be done to help those uninsured or to
help them afford insurance. I have been sending small
checks to the companies who were involved in my care
(some of which I have no idea who they are or what they
did). Most have turned me into collection, after gracefully
giving me the opportunity to pay in full immediately -
roughly a total of over $80,000. I am making an effort, but
they are not satisfied, but the only other solution is to not
pay at all.
Next time, I think I'll just take my chances or see if I can


find an old fashion "medicine man" to dance around me.
What has happened to good old medical care and compas-
sion?? The medical profession takes an oath to help
humankind but only after receiving the almighty dollar.

A response about the Olympics
To the ranter who wrote that Mr. Pistorius should be
allowed to compete in the Beijing Olympics and stated of
Olympic officials 'They feel that his prosthetic racing legs
give him a competitive advantage,' I'm sorry but they don't
just feel that, rather, those prosthetics do give him an actual
advantage and, as such, it's not fair to the other athletes.
Why is this a problem for you? He can't pull a calf muscle
while racing, nor twist an ankle; the physical dynamics of
his prostheses provide a sturdier and more responsive plat-
form than the natural lower leg how can you not see this as
the unfair advantage that it is?
Why could he not be content to race in Special Olympic
events where he rightfully belongs?
Are we so concerned about being "inclusive" for people
with challenges that we have no problem forcing them upon
everyone else just to make them and ourselves feel better
through magnanimous actions?
That's unfair to everyone without a handicap, and they
have rights too. It reminds me of parents who complain that
their child is left off the varsity team, even though the child
lacks the skills to compete at a higher level. They (try to)
force school administrators to put their kids on teams so
they don't feel 'left out.'
In the meantime, kids with real skills have to suffer dimin-
ished team performance because someone's nose is bent
out of shape over their child who simply doesn't measure
up, through no fault of their own nor of the better-skilled
players. These parents are so busy lamenting the 'exclusion'
of their child they don't have the ability to think "maybe we
can organize a team of kids who can still compete together
at a common skill level and not degrade the performance
opportunities for those who possess higher skills." I guess
that would make too much sense. Better to bring everyone
else down to their child's level instead.
Sure, a school may not be able to afford funding two dif-
ferent levels of competition, but then again, that's what
community is for.
The Special Olympics is a big enough thing and has been
around for a good while now and has gained respect in the
sporting world. This is where Mr. Pistorius belongs.

News programs are like soap operas
The news on NBC, CBS and ABC think they are the new
soaps, they all have exclusive stories only seen on that
channel, and weather first not accurate but first and
every seven minutes thereafter. The one that caused me
to write is 'there is a dirty restaurant we will tell you at
11,' as you are heading out to eat, or the meat recall as
you are starting dinner, stay tuned at 11.
One station has a contest to win a TV, but if you do not
watch the 11p.m. news you need not enter. While I am on
a roll... how about the commercials -that run back to back
and the subtle commercials.
Time it... we get about 7.5 minutes of news and the rest is
advertising news at 11 p.m.. or other re-runs in 30 minutes.
The rest of the 22.5 minutes is introductions, which is
annoying since it is on the screen, I guess they think we can't
read.

PORT ST. LUCIE When
Carrie Duffin lived on Staten
Island, she often visited her
sister's pottery studio with
her own children.
Then Mrs. Duffin and her
family moved to Port St.
Lucie four years ago.
"I realized there was noth-
ing for families to do togeth-
er here," she said.
Mrs. Duffin decided to do
something about that, and


the result is Created ByYou,.a
paint-your-own pottery stu-
dio for kids and adults alike.
The ceramic pieces in the
studio arrive in the studio
already made and fired.
"They are ready to be
painted and designed," said
Mrs. Duffin. "Anyone can
walk in and paint."
Mrs. Duffin stressed that
you do not have to have
experience or be artistic to
create your own pieces.

Staff photo by Rita Hart
Members of the Sheriff's Office Explorer Post 400 play the part of students exiting a
school where two gunmen, played by Sheriff's Office deputies, have taken over. The drill
was a training exercise for thirty deputies who, except for the "gunmen," did not have
advance knowledge of the drill's script.


Deputies
From page Al
deputies were critiqued by
their trainers, and the entire
drill was videotaped for
future use as a training tool.
"The lessons learned from
Columbine changed the
entire way law enforcement
responds to school shoot-
ings," said Deputy Sal Anci-
to, a school resource officer
at Lakewood Park Elemen-
tary School in Fort Pierce.
"The first responders
attempt to contain the
shooter and detain him."
Sheriff Mascara said his
office conducts two on-site
training per year. The loca-
tion is not always a high
school; training have previ-
ously been conducted in
businesses and the Circuit
Court courthouse in Fort
Pierce.
The practices are as real as
the deputies can make
them. The noise from the


sirens, alarms and fake gun-
fire was loud enough to
require that all participants
and observers wear ear
plugs. Two young girls
wailed over the "body" of
their classmate in the court-
yard. The deputies are
charged with adrenaline as
they talk to each other on
radios.
"One bad guy down in
Four West," yelled one.
Another shouted at the
teens on the ground as he
entered the building,
"Where's he at, where's he
at?" as the students pointed
in the direction of one gun-
man.
"Get out the front door
and run," yelled another,
quickly escorting the youths
out the front door of the
school as they ran.
"A lot of communication is
necessary to make this
work," said Sheriff Mascara.
The scenario at last week's
drill included two gunmen,
one who barricaded himself


in the school, taking
hostages, and the other run-
ning all over the campus,
shooting as he went. Both
were eventually "terminat-
ed," although the .deputies
had no idea where to find
them when they entered the
school.
"We train every deputy in
the agency on how to deal
with an active shooter," said
Sgt. McIntosh. "In addition,
we do 20 training sessions
per year (that are not on-site
drills). Every sworn person
in the Sheriff's Office who
utilizes a weapon gets train-
ing."
Sheriff Mascara said his
office reviews every "after-
action" report that results
from real shootings that
have occurred across the
country, but for the most
part, those reports do not
have a significant impact on
his staff, who are already
highly-trained.
"Our mission remains the
same." he said.


From page A3
New York Met's jewelry,
worth $270,000, stolen and
then partially returned
On Feb. 19, Ambiorix Burgos, a NewYork
Met baseball player staying at the Spring
Hill Suites on Courtyard Circle in St. Lucie
West, told police that between Feb. 16-19,
someone stole his jewelry from his room.
The jewelry, which included rings,
bracelets, chains and watches, was con-
tained in a black bag and was reportedly
worth a total of $270,000.
The rooms in Spring Hill Suites do not
contain safes for valuables.
Investigators interviewed several people
who had access to the room during that
time frame, but all denied taking the jewel-
ry.
Shortly thereafter, a black male in his
early 20s with a gold tooth entered the


Spring Hill Suites with a black'bag and
placed it on the counter, telling hotel per-
sonnel he found it outside.
On Feb. 21, police arrested Myranda A.
Byrd, 34, of 1708 Grand Club Blvd., Fort
Pierce for the theft of the jewelry. Ms. Byrd,
a housekeeper for Springhill Suites, admit-
ted to police that she took the jewelry
when she was cleaning Mr. Burgos' room,
after originally denying it during the initial
interview.
"The person who we believe returned
(the bag) is the boyfriend of her cousin,"
said Officer Robert Vega, spokesman for
the Port St. Lucie Police Department.
However, Mr. Burgos reported that a few'
pieces of the jewelry, valued between
$20,000 and $30,000, were missing from
the bag when it was returned. Officer Vega
said the investigation is continuing with
respect to those missing pieces.

The St. Lucie County
Chamber of Commerce Foundation and
AT&T Florida announces
THE GRAND OPENING OF THE HISPANIC
COMMUNITY COMPUTER LAB
Wednesday, February 27, 2008 5:00 pm.
The St. Lucie County Chamber of Commerce Foundation and AT&T Florida proudly
announce the Grand Opening and Press Conference for our Community Computer Labs
on Wednesday, February 27,2008 at 5:00 PM at the Latin American Coalition of St. Lucie
County, 3504 Okeechobee Road, Fort Pierce.
AT&T Florida has made it possible to open computer centers in neighborhood church-
es or schools so that under-served communities have a place, in their own neighborhood,
where adults can access the computers and learn basic computer, software and Internet
skills at no cost. Currently, two centers are operational with more slated to open soon.
The first Community Computer Lab was set up at the Haitian United Methodist
Church in Fort Pierce. With 8 computer stations, the local community has the ability to
access social services and receive training on computer skills and software, all for free. The
Hispanic community will be served with 4 computer stations at the Latin American
Coalition on Okeechobee Road in Fort Pierce. We have two more centers in the northern
part of Fort Pierce that we anticipate will open in the next few months. A Port St. Lucie
location will be identified soon as well.
Join us as we celebrate this great community project and
recognize all the contributors for their efforts.
For more information, contact the Chamber at 772-340-1333. Please RSVP to

Veterans
From page Al
Rep. Mahoney said the
students who interview the
veterans realize they are
talking to people who were
their own age when they
first entered the military.
"This project provides a
nexus for people to learn
about the veterans' serv-
ice," he said.
On Feb. 19, social studies
and television production
students from St. Lucie
West Centennial High
School hosted approxi-
mately 12 veterans for one-
on-one interviews. The vet-
erans were provided a list
of questions in advance to
help them prepare for their
interview, and arrived with
documents and photo-
graphs from their time of
military service. They spent
the morning getting to
know a social studies stu-
dent assigned to them. The
next day, they returned to
give a formal interview on
camera which was filmed
by the TV production stu-
dents.
In May, the compiled
interviews and records will
be sent to the Library of
Congress for posterity.
Teachers overseeing the
project include Susan Ben-
der, chair of Centennial's
social studies department,
Ron Fazer, a social studies
teacher, Shawn Tausch, an
economics teacher and
Joanna Thouvenot, a televi-
sion production instructor.
"We've been working on
this for about two months,"
said Mrs. Bender. "We
received an e-mail from
Congressman Mahoney's
office asking us if we'd be
interested, and they put us
in touch with Paul Hiott."
All of the teachers agreed
that Mr. Hiott, Director of
St. Lucie County Veterans
Services, was integral to the
success of the project.
"Mr. Hiott was able to get
the veterans for us," said
Ms. Thouvenot. "We could-
n't have done it without
him."
Katie Webb, 17, a senior
at Centennial, was
assigned to interview Mr.
Hiott, himself a Navy veter-
an.
"I've learned ten life les-

Ask The Jeweler

Gold Trades over $950.00
per ounce. Silver as of
this writing tops $18.00. In
this economic market, St.
Lucie Jewelry moves
towards wholesale pric-
ing.
If gold continues to rise,
the price for jewelry will
become out of reach for
most blue collar workers
and we feel this is the only
way to continue doing busi-
ness competitively. St. Lucie
Jewelry sees over 100 cus-
tomers per day and we have
not slowed down. The eco-
nomic conditions continue
to deteriorate and we are.
stepping up to the plate and
lowering prices to whole
sale levels.
Diamond prices have
stabilized as well as other
precious stones. Sterling sil-
ver flatware has been show-
ing up more and more with
some sets reaching as high
as $3000.00 so we see a
huge rise in people selling
off these assets to pay bills.
We are also now trading
precious metals as well
because the demand is high
both on the buy and sell
side.
Hawk Levy has been in
the trade since 1979,
he currently owns
St. Lucie Jewelry at
9168 South US 1 in Port St. Lucie,

sons from him," said Katie.
When Mr. Hiott was con-
tacted by the school, he
searched his records to
come up with veterans
from every conflict since
World War II, including
Korea, Viet Nam, Desert
Storm, Afghanistan and
Iraq.
"I knew the group I asked
were passionate about
their time in service and
would be receptive to talk
to this generation, to dis-
play patriotism and Ameri-
canism," he said. "And I
knew these guys are also
instrumental in their com-
munities and advocates for
veterans' benefits."
Mr. Hiott said when word
of the project spread, he
received many calls from
other veterans who were
eager to participate.
"They are already on a
waiting list for next year,"
he said, as the high school
expects this project to
become an annual event.
One veteran who was
happy to be part of the
project was Domenick
Scarlato of Port St. Lucie. A
WWII veteran, Mr. Scarlato
enlisted in the Navy in 1944
after forging his parents'
signatures. He was 16 years
old.
Mr. Scarlato eventually
joined the Navy's Underwa-
ter Demolition Team, now
known as the Navy SEALS.
He credits his Navy service
with setting the stage for
his later successes in life.
"The Navy straightened
me out," he said.
In a biography he wrote
for his student interviewer,
Kristen Butala, 18, Mr.
Scarlato wrote that in June
of 1945, he was sent on a
mission to deactivate
underwater mines that the
Germans had placed along
the coastline of France.
"Unfortunately, it was
found that there was more
to the mission than blow-
ing up mines," wrote Mr.
Scarlato. "It was found that
some remnants from the
original invasion were
hung up on the mines or its
chains. What was found
were webbing from back
packs, clothing and other
items. These were gently
retrieved and sent back to
the ship for inspection and
possible identification.

This was a very emotional
experience, which can
never be erased from my
memory."
After he left the military,
Mr. Scarlato married and
had five daughters. While
working full-time, he went
to college part-time. Over
the course of 12 years, he
earned a Bachelor of Sci-
ence, Master's degree and
Ph.D. in Education.
After graduating, he
became a high school
teacher in Brooklyn and
Long Island, then a princi-
pal. He retired at the age of
60 after 20 years as an
assistant superintendent.
Now disabled with lung
problems, Mr. Scarnato
credits Mr. Hiott with help-
ing him obtain veteran's
benefits. The story of his
long struggle for those ben-
efits was another lesson for
young Kristen.
"I didn't know about the
things the VFW and Ameri-
can Legion do to help vet-
erans today," said Kristen.
"I didn't know there was
that much help out there. I
learned more than I could
have from any textbook."
Rachel Sparks, 17, a jun-
ior at Centennial, was part
of 'the TV production crew
recording the interviews
with cameras.
"I think getting to know
the veterans and hearing
their stories is really cool,"
said Rachel. "We are being
the eyes of everything that
is going on."
Samantha Millman, a
Centennial senior who
interviewed Viet Nam vet-
eran Frank Howard, said
her experience hit home
because her grandfather,
now deceased, was also a
veteran of that war.
"I've learned respect and
what these people have
gone through, and the dis-
cipline and honor they
have for their country," she
said. "My grandfather was a
Green Beret, and he never
talked about it."
Congressman Mahoney,
after speaking with a group
of veterans spanning three
generations, said the Veter-
ans History Project helps
teach youth that the veter-
ans deserve their respect.
"The students are learn-
ing that freedom isn't free,"
he said.

reports.
The extent of the drop in
applications in the county
was unclear by press time,
and building department
representatives had not
responded to requests for
feedback on the layoffs.
"We are going to be reor-
ganizing several county
departments," Mr. Ander-
son said, but added that no
other layoffs are scheduled.
County administrators
have been seeking ways to
make .up for the budget
shortfall caused largely by
property tax reform
approved in January and
decreased property values.
Among their strategies is
a hiring freeze that has left
100 unfilled positions
across all county depart-
ments.
The vacancies resulted in
savings of nearly $3.37 mil-
lion, but the county has
become less efficient and
lost several services, Mr.
Anderson said.
"We're not maintaining
county facilities as well as
we have in the past. We
just cancelled our win-
dow-cleaning contract;
we're not mowing our

fields; and we're not clean-
ing our buildings as often
as we did in the past," he
said.
To hold the line on
expenses, Mr. Anderson
will recommend several
cutbacks to county com-
missioners at a strategic
planning session set for
mid-March.
For the 2009 budget, he
recommends several initia-
tives including closing
each county library, with
the exception of the main
Fort Pierce branch, for one
day per week and eliminat-
ing the book mobile, for
savings of $163,752.
Other options for com-
missioners to consider
include cutting funding for
school resource officers to
reallocate at least $600,000
to the general fund or
budget. Another proposal
is to save nearly $224,000
by decreasing funding by
10 percent to several agen-
cies, such as the Council on
Aging, ARC of St. Lucie


County, Healthy Start, New
Horizons, the health
department, Executive
Roundtable, 211 Info Crisis
Services and Treasure
Coast Homeless.
The suggestions also
include canceling mowing
services for medians to
save more than $620,700,
banning out-of-state travel
unless, it results in new rev-
enue for the county, allow
new capital' spending only
with federal or state grants,
considering budget cuts for
the sheriff's office, clerk of
court and supervisor of
elections and cease wash-
ing the windows at the
county administrative
building.
Staff is also looking for
ways to generate revenue
for recreation programs
and increase impact fees,
but are not recommending
any tax increases at this
time, Mr. Anderson said.
"We've already done
some things to get the
shortfall down," he said.

From page A7
I am certainly glad the newspaper does not tell you to
buy the paper tomorrow and we will finish the story. I
wish the people advertising their products or business
would pull the double ads they are paying for... and not
back to back commercials. I wish the stations would
charge more for ads and be like Charlie Gibson evening
news with control ads once a week or like BBC news
without commercials.

Disgusted by police video

After watching the video of the police officer dumping
the disabled man out of his wheelchair, I feel that she
should be charged with a hate crime. She should be fired
and put in jail.

ments?
Fifty years old is old?
This 'old' block building
survived multiple hurri-
canes. Also, county com-
fiissioner Charles Grande,
Mayor Bob Benton and my
husband, a former Humane
Society Board Treasurer
toured the St..Lucie County
shelter facility and conclud-
ed that the building was
being well taken care of and
the needed improvements
were in no way insurmount-
able or 'massive.'
One real immediate con-
cern though is that the shel-
ter is in need of window pro-
tection. They already
invested approximately
$60,000 in a new roof, but if
they don't install new win-
dows or shutters now
because they are "saving"
for a new building, the shel-
ter will be at risk come next
hurricane season.
, I think it is reasonable to
expect that window protec-
tion be made a priority over
a new building fund consid-
ering their new roof could
be ripped off and the shelter
utterly destroyed.
I also -think it reasonable
to get answers to the follow-
ing questions, which I have
asked on numerous occa-
sions.
How much will it cost to
renovate the existing build-
ing in comparison to relo-
dating and re-building?
How much will a new
facility cost tax payers in
yearly operating costs in
comparison to it's current
yearly operating costs and
last but not least, shouldn't
the Humane Society wait to
see how many less animals
will be brought to their facil-
ity as a result of the enforce-
ment of the new county pet
license ordinance and
spay/neuter program?
How can they design a
new facility without know-
ing how many animals they
will need to provide?
Why are these questions


never answered?
This brings me to the
most important and inter-
esting part about Mr.
Andrews letter. He seems to
be concerned that the gov-
ernment contract amounts
paid to the Humane Society
will be reduced because the
new county pet license ordi-
nance/spay/neuter pro-
gram will work.
It will be effective in
reducing unwanted pets
from being irresponsibly
born and less will be
dumped at the shelter thus
resulting in less tax revenue
paid to the Humane Society
for covering their operating
costs. Are they afraid that
they may actually have to
divert donations from their
building fund to help pay
for operating costs?
The executive director
goes on to say that they are a
not-for-profit, which they
are, but not a government
agency.
Well, they are a govern-
ment-funded organization
that costs taxpayers approx-
imately a million dollars
yearly. I am not sure what
you call that but regardless
it makes the Humane Soci-
eties 'business' a tax-paid-
for business-interest that
utilizes public funds.
Shouldn't they be held
just as accountable for the
use of public funds as any
other fully designated gov-
ernment agency? .
Do you think the taxpayer
appreciates the distinction
that while their taxes pay a
million-dollar-a-year bill,
the bulk of their yearly oper-
ating costs, they are free to
solicit and save charitable
dollars to build a new facili-
ty they really don't need
instead of easing the tax
payers burden?
In ending, I believe that
the business of any and all
animal rescue organizations
should always be to go out
of business, not plan on
growing into a bigger opera-
tion.

Fellow Florida Car Dealers, if you don't Now, here is the good news. After elimi

sales, service,
parts, body shop,
and accounting.


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


Virtually every car dealer of educa
in Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a sophistic
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" :fee ranging from $500 much hig
to nearly $1,000. This extra
charge is programmed into ""-:" ....
your computer. It has been made illegal in
many states including California, but is still
legal in Florida. The reason you charge this
fee is simply to increase the price of the car
and your profit in such a manner that it is not
noticed by your customers. This is just plain
Wrong. I used to charge a dealer fee ($495)
and when I stopped charging it a few years
ago it was scary. But I did it because I could
no longer, in good conscience, mislead my
customers. Just because everybody else
was doing the same thing, did not make it
correct.

a fair shake and quoting a complete out-the-
door price with no "surprises". And the word
spread. My volume of car sales began to rise
rapidly. Sure, I was making a few hundred
dollars less per car, but I was selling a lot
more cars. I was and am selling cars to many
of your former customers. My bottom line
has improved, not because I eliminated the
'"-r dealer fee, but because I was
stomers' able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
ion, level or used car. You can do the
same.


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

Attesting to that recently was
Peggy Ryan of Port St. Lucie,
who stopped in the studio to
pick up her recent creation, a
small bear that she planned
on giving as a gift.
"I came here with the Red
Hat ladies," said Ms. Ryan. "It
was so much fun. There were
six of us, the 'Dolphinette
Divas.' I'm not an artist, but I
made a teddy bear."
Ms. Ryan credits the skill of
the studio's owner with help-
ing her get over her initial
nervousneess about painting'
a piece.
"Carrie is very patient, and
she is very, very nice. I was
totally impressed," she said.
Mrs. Duffin explained that
no appointment is needed to
visit her studio, unless you

come with a group of 10 or
more.
When you enter the studio,
you choose an item to be
painted and purchase it. For
an additional small fee of $4
for children and $8 for
adults, you receive all the
paints, supplies, firing and
glazing needed. That fee is
per visit, regardless of the
number of items you pur-
chase for painting.
For groups of ten or more,
the fee is half-price for adults
and totally waived for chil-
dren.
Mrs. Duffin has had
groups of children from
summer camp, school chil-
dren and groups from organ-
izations in her studio. She
also goes to schools for field
trips, bringing the supplies
with her.

children made charms
shaped like hearts. Each
charm contained the
thumbprint of the child on
the front, and was strung
with a ribbon. The result was
a necklace that the children
presented to their parents.
The studio contains a large
number of items from which,
to choose for painting,
including wine bottle hold-
ers, dishes, platters, Japanese
sake sets, margarita and
wine glasses, Easter baskets,'
picture frames, canisters,
coffee mugs, animals, tiles,
cake plates and even a latte
cup and saucer painted to
match a place mat.
"This year for Christmags,
my children made all home-
made gifts for everyone.
They all loved it," said Mrs.
Duffin.
Mrs. Duffin, who attends
conventions on a regular
basis to learn new tech-
niques, said the pieces are
glazed and fired after paint-
ing and therefore are dish-
washer and microwave safe.
Caroline Klaffer, 12, is
home schooled by her moth-
er and attends the studio on*
a regular basis as part of her
art studies. Her latest project
was a set of salt and pepper
shakers that were very color-
ful and looked .like little
chefs.
"I have to take her out of
here kicking and screaming,".
joked Caroline's mother,
Kathy, when speaking of how,
much her daughter loves"
coming to Created By You.
"My favorite part is paint-
ing it," said Caroline, who
has made a dog, ornaments,
handprints on tiles and a
fairy.
Created By You also offers
parties, including a birthday
party package, as well as spe-
cial events.
In February, 21 children.
attended "Kid's Night." For
$20 per child, there were
hands-on crafts, pizza, soda
and a movie.
"The idea was so parents
could have a night out," said
Mrs. Duffin. "It was such a
success, we plan on doing it
once a month now. The next
one is scheduled for March.
14."
Created By You is not all
about pottery. The studio'
also offers a "Bear Work-
shop." For $12, a child can
choose their own bear and
stuff the animal themselves.
Outfits for the bears (which'
cost between $10 and $14)
are also available.
Adults have as much fun as
the children at Created By
You.
Mrs. Duffin said three cou-
ples came in recently and'
told her they had spent the
day competing against each
other in a variety of activities,
including golf. Created By
You was their last stop of the
day, and after each person in
the group had made some-
thing, they asked Mrs. Duffin
to judge which was the best.
"They had a ball," she said.

SHELLEY KOPPEL
Treasure Coast Scene

Tony DiTerlizzi
talks about
'Spiderwick' film
A en I spoke to
STony DiTerlizzi last
V fall, the South Fork
High School grad's newest
book had just come out, he
was coming to Florida for
his 20th high school
reunion, and his books 'The
Spiderwick Chronicles,'
written with Holly Black,
were being made into a
movie. This week, with the
movie out to strong
reviews, he spoke by phone
from his home in Massa-
chusetts about what the
last few months have been
like.
"It's been insane, crazy,
good, awesome," he said.
"Not a lot of people get to
see their books made into a
film. They kept us involved.
I love the film. It upholds
the spirit of the book and
you can't ask for more."
Mr. DiTerlizzi singled out
actors Freddie Highmore,
who plays brothers Simon
and Jared, and Sarah
Bolger, who plays Mallory
for praise.
"Freddie did a really great
job," he says. You get a nice
sense of his talent. They're
not caricatures. Sarah
Bolger did a great job as
Mallory. It's ridiculous, the
amount to talent in the
film, with David Strathairn,
John Plowright, Nick Nolte.
It's a huge A-list of talent."
Mr. DiTerlizzi says that
his life hasn't changed
much-yet.
"I'm still making books,"
he said. "I'm a children's
book creator, not a film-
maker. Having it adapted
into other media, like toys
and video games is an
amazing validation of the
world I'm creating and I'll
keep creating more imagi-
native worlds for children."

Duo still funny after 50 years


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
They've been in show
business for 50 years in a
comedy act that started as
something to do while
they were students at San
Jose State in California.
They had their own
variety show and were
kicked off the air for
criticizing the Vietnam
War. Today they still travel
the country, still debating
who mom loved best, and
they bring their act to the
Sunrise Theatre on March
5.
I spoke by phone to Dick
Smothers, who lives in
Sarasota.
"The 'mom liked you
best' line wasn't planned,"
Mr. Smothers said. "When
it came out of Tommy's
mouth in 1961 at the
Crystal Palace in St. Louis,
it was a big surprise to
him, to me and to the
audience. Comedically, it
worked. From early on, I
would yell at him for being
stupid, not smart enough
to be anyone's brother. I
told him he was the reason
why mothers eat their
young. Then I ran out of
insults and he said, 'oh,
yeah, and mom always
liked you best.' It's funny
how people remember."
Being brothers is the
basis of their humor and


Mr. Smother likens it to
the humor of Burns and
Allen, who based their
humor on married life.
"Gracie was always on
George's ass, but they were
never mean-spirited," he
said. "Good comedy
revolves around reality
and exaggeration. Going
back even to Laurel and
Hardy; they didn't want to
get into messes, and
extricating themselves,
each decision leads .to
another. When Tommy
and I are talking, it's like
that. We never had a first
language. We're jealous of
Mexican-Americans who
learn English better than
we do. English is our
second language. It's all in
the timing. Tommy has
that gift. You have to be
wired a little strange to be
a comedian.
"Tommy had the ability.
Some people have it right
out of the box. Almost
every class has a student
who's the class clown who
could grow up to be a
comedian. Tommy is
dyslexic. He convoluted
words, but he turned an
affliction into an asset. We
have big ears, and we're
skinny. We made fun of
each other and about lack
of intelligence. One great
thing about being
mediocre; you're always at
your best."

Week of 02-29-2008

Aries-March 21-April 19
Allow the living spirit to awaken in you and tend to it
carefully. Get in touch with your burning desires and
manifest them in your life. What are you waiting for?
A forest fire begins with a tiny spark. Remove any
obstacle in the path of your life. It is time to move
forward. Shine your light. Set your spirit free. Take a
close look at your potential and you will be amazed.
Taurus-April 20-May 20
What do you really feel right now? Refuse to dwell
on the past. Learn from it, forgive it and move on.
What do you really want right now? This is the most
important question. Everything else can wait a
while. Answer this question, and you will accom-
plish all your major goals in a timely manner. Today
is the only sure thing in life. Make the most of it.

"The Smothers Brothers
Comedy Hour" aired from
1967-1969 and was
intended to be a flashpoint
for anti-war sentiment.
"'Bonanza' owned
Sunday night for six years,
and CBS was losing too
much ad revenue," said
Dick Smothers. 'A variety
show was quick. We knew
we wanted creative
control, and they gave us
everything because they
figured we'd fail. We
wanted to be relevant, and


the Sunrise Theatre on


we had a 'take no prison-
ers' attitude."
The show booked top
music acts like The Who
and the Doors as well as
musicians with political
messages such as Peter,
Paul and Mary and Joan
Baez.
They mixed it up with
guest starts from radio

D See DUO, BIO


Gemini-May 21-June 21
Now is the time to reinvent yourself. New energy,
enthusiasm and hope live abundantly. Regroup and
reclaim your strength. A positive outlook will bring
this forth. Give your adult self some time off. Let your
beautiful inner child come out to play. Don't take life
so seriously. Live in joy. Relax your body, mind, heart
and spirit. Enjoy each day as a new adventure, and
all will be well.
Cancer-June 22-July 22 '
Watch for growth and new direction ahead. Listen to
your inner drives. Focus on them and set them in
motion. Take action. Honestly assess all sides of
opportunities. Surprising insights will bring new
awareness. Refuse to be rushed until you have a
clear picture. Then follow your heart and you will
emerge victorious in all ways.
Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
The need to speak from the heart and communicate
feelings to those you love is crucial right now.
Observe when those closest to you are stressed.
Increase the quality time you spend together. Listen,
talk, love and laugh. The energy of this action will
heal any division that has crept into your lives.
Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept.22
Love what you do, and success is assured. Move for-
ward as an individual when needed. It's good to
have a little space for yourself and give it to others.


Sunday


Be a little more gentle on yourself. Unrealistic expec-

Nikos brings the best of


Greece to Jensen Beach


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
JENSEN BEACH -
Imagine you're touring the
Greek Isles on a motor
scooter and as you round
the bend of a curvy road
overlooking the Mediter-
ranean, you spy a charming
little cafe on the side of the
road.
The small, intimate
restaurant is run by the
doting owners, who greet
everyone who comes
through doors as if he or she
were their own family
members and take personal
pride in everything coming
out of the kitchen.
Well, now you need go no
farther than U.S. 1 in Jensen
Beach to experience the
warmth of Greek culture
and the best of the region's
cuisine at Nikos Mediter-
ranean Cafe.
Opened last Oct. 18, the
restaurant is owned by
Nikos Stergiou and Maria


Bordonard.
Mr. Stergiou brings more
than 35 years in the hospi-
tality industry to the table,
the last 10 spent with the
Club Med chain of interna-
tional resorts.
As you step through the
door, you're transformed
into the warm colors of the
Mediterranean, which make
the perfect backdrop for the
Greek comfort food you're
about to partake.
Nikos starts each guest off
with an unordered appetiz-
er, a plate of soft and warm
pita triangles and two
deliciously different
spreads: tzatziki, a blend of
Greek yogurt, cucumbers
and savory seasonings; and
revithosalata, a humus
chickpea spread.
It's an exquisite and tasty
to way to kick off your
Mediterranean dining
experience, and the flavors
meld well with a glass of
Kleoni, a simple, white dry
wine that Nikos pours out of


a huge bottle. If you prefer,
there are also a variety of
domestic and imported
beers from which to choose,
including the Greek brands
Alpha and Mythos, along
with a good selection of
Italian wines.
To stimulate your appetite
and cure almost anything
that might ail you, start off
with a steaming bowl of
avgolemono. The sensation-
al chicken and rice soup
flavored with lemon is surely
the secret weapon of Greek
grandmothers around the
globe.
Of course, no Mediter-
ranean meal could begin
without a plate of fresh feta
cheese topped with olive oil
accompanied'by a selection
of Greek olives. The list of
appetizers is extensive,
including such treats as
tiropitakia (flaky phyllo
pastry stuffed with three
Greek cheeses; keftedes

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

FORT PIERCE Music,
food and dancing won't be
the only attractions at St.
Nicholas Greek Church's
annual Greek Festival hap-
pening March 7-9.
Festival-goers will be
able to view new stained-
glass artwork inside the
church, which will be open
throughout the event.
During past festivals the
church was open for tours.
By opening the church
people have the opportu-
nity to experience more
than an ethnic celebration
of Greek culture.
Previously, donated
icons were displayed in the


area where the new art-
work is located. The
church donated those
icons to other congrega-
tions that are building
churches, he said.
The festival will be held
March 7-8 from 11 a.m. to
10 p.m. and March 9 from
11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The church is at 2525 S. 25th
St. in Fort Pierce, two blocks
south ofVirginia Avenue.
During the three-day
event, lunches and dinners
will be available.
Selections include lamb
shanks, Greek salads,
moussaka (baked layers of
eggplant seasoned with
ground chuck and topped
with bechamel sauce and


grated parmesan cheese,
chicken Athenian (roast
chicken seasoned with
lemon juice and oregano)
and a variety of other
items.
The festival also has a
grill offering gyros, Greek
sausages and other items.
A coffee shop featuring
Greek coffee, cappuccino
and pastries will be open
-throughout the event.
Greek wine and various
Greek imports, such as
clothing, will be for sale.
A band will play authen-
tic Greek music through-
out the festival.
The, festival will also
include games for chil-
dren.

(tender spiced meatballs
served with tzatziki sauce);
and octapodi (tender
octopus marinated in olive
oil and herbs). There are
also several salads to
choose from, such as the
Caprese (a bed of spinach
leaves topped with moz-
zarella, tomatoes and
shaved Parmesan cheese)
and the Antipasti (arti-
chokes, Portobello mush-
rooms, zucchini and
eggplant served over a
variety of mixed field
greens).
You'll find the tradition-
al Greek layered
casseroles here like
pastitsio (baked ziti,
ground beef and tomato
sauce) and mousaka
(eggplant and ground
beef). Both are topped
with a delicious
bechamel sauce.
Other entree choices
include the comforting
gouvetsi (a mixture of
orzo pasta, stewed veal,


tomato sauce and herbs
topped with feta cheese);
spaghetti alta Siciliana
(spaghetti topped with
fried eggplant, pepper-
oncini, tomato and fresh
mozzarella; and tender
and juicy grilled lamb
chops.
For a truly Greek
specialty, you'll want to
go for the dolmades
platter of homemade
grape leaves stuffed with
rice, beef and seasonings.
For lighter appetites,
Nikos offers a number of
exotic sandwiches served
on a variety of breads, as
well as the signature
gyros made with either
lamb, beef or chicken,
and the souviaki: cubes of
marinated pork or grilled
chicken, topped with
tomatoes, onions and
tzatziki sauce and served
with grilled pita bread.
Nikos' creations are
made all the more richer
by his secret weapon,
which he revealed to this
writer: Sitia 0.7 extra
virgin olive oil imported
from Crete.

INNI6 a ENTET HINMIENT


Duo
From page B1
Jonathan Winters.
Of the latter, Mr. Smoth-
ers said that he was so
unpredictable that no one
had any idea what he'd do.
They spoke out politically
against racism, the Viet-
nam War, guns and tobac-
co, even though a tobacco
company was a sponsor.
David Steinberg did a skit
about Moses, and perform-
ers like Harry Belafonte
and Pete Seeger sang anti-
war songs. The network
and the Smothers Brothers


were constantly at odds.
"We offended people at
the biggest family hour (on
television)" said Mr.
Smothers. "It wasn't late
night. The networks
couldn't handle it."
Ultimately, the brothers
were fired, and they
successfully sued the
network for breach of
contract, although the
show was not renewed.
Dick Smothers sees the
firing as a blessing.
"Maybe that kept us in
people's hearts and minds,"
he said. "We did the right
thing. Tommy was the
leader, but he couldn't have


done it without me, but I'd
have been a retired school-
teacher without him. We've
been good for each other,
but respect each other's
separateness. I don't see
myself as going to work. I
think it's great that the gift
you give is the one people
want to receive. It's been
such a life."
The Smothers Brothers
will bring comedy and
music to the Sunrise
Theatre, 117S. Second St.,
Fort Pierce, on March 5for
a 7p.m. show. Tickets are
$49 and $39. Call the box
office or order online at
www.sunrisetheatre.com.

uprising outcomes and changes
for the better are coming your
way. Be thankful and enjoy.
Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Find ways to give back as you
have been given. Now even
more is on the way. You have
always been an idealist. The
world needs more special
souls like you. Turn your stum-
bling blocks into stepping
stones that carry you on to
life's greatest rewards. You
have been waiting all your life
for this moment. Seize it and
prosper. You have it in you.


Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
You continue to act on your
opportunities for growth. The
key is to listen to and trust your
instincts. Let them flow up
through you heart and into the
mind. Take action on the posi-
tives. Say "no" to the negatives.
Wise choices are far greater
than hasty ones. You know
what you want. Things are
coming together. You are a
springboard for good change.


Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
Love and approve of yourself
first. If you don't, you won't
allow others to do it consis-
tently. This is your time of the
zodiac year to shine and mani-
fest your greatest dreams. Your
greatest victories are just
ahead. Let your spirit guide
you. It's your natural way. Rec-
ognize what you need to do
and watch the doors open to a
new, brilliant and magical life.

YOUTH ACTIVITIES & SPORTS


PSL High School

expects to battle the

competition in 2008


By JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
PORT ST. LUCIE Con-
ventional wisdom states
that it's only acceptable to
come close in horseshoes
in hand grenades. For Port
St. Lucie High School head
coach Tony Malizia, just
narrowly missing his
dreams of winning a state
title was a reward in itself.
"It was very special,"
Malizia said. "We had a
great group of young men
who were very dedicated
and worked really hard.
"They all put in a lot of
work."
Of course, coming out on
top would've been a little
.bit sweeter.
"It was something I was
looking forward to for a
long time," Malizia said. "I
couldn't ask for anything
else except to win it."
After four trips to the
regional final two as an
assistant and two as the
head coach Malizia
finally made it to the state
final four on the strength
of the Jaguars' 5-4 win over
West Boca.
Mike McGee started the
game, pitching eight solid
innings, while allowing
just five hits and two runs,
striking out eight. Younger
brother Steve McGee put
the Jaguars on the board
first by smashing a pitch
over the left-field fence in
the second inning.
Andrew Durden
punched in another run in
the sixth and Port St. Lucie
found itself on the verge of
the win, needing just two
outs in the bottom of the
seventh to advance.
Unfortunately, the Bulls
were able to tie the score,
aided along by a wild pitch
and an error, as the game
headed into extra innings.
In the ninth inning, the
Jaguars loaded the bases
and then pulled ahead
after Tony Degirolamo was
hit by a pitch. Mike McGee
followed with a two-run
double, giving Port St.
Lucie a 5-2 cushion.
In the bottom of the
frame, Durden replaced
McGee on the mound and
quickly got the first two
outs. However, he walked
the next two batters,
prompting Malizia to
bring in his closer, Jesse
Hunter.
Hunter surrendered a
two-run double before
closing out the game on a
line drive to Mike McGee.
Against Newsome in the
state semifinal, it was the
Jaguars who were down to
its final outs with the
threat of being eliminated.
Like it done all season, the
Jaguars responded, load-
ing the bases in the bot-
tom of the sixth.
Up stepped senior Max
Scarogni who dribbled
one down to third base.
The throw to first was in
the dirt, scoring two runs
and opening up the flood-
gates. The Jaguars came
away with a 7-2 win and a
date with Venice High
School for the title.


The game started off on
cue, as starter Damon Kre-
stalude looked strong early
on. With neither team
being able to put anything
on the scoreboard, the
contest appeared to be
headed into extra innings.
However, Venice struck
for nine runs in the fifth
inning, capped by a three-
run homer. The Jaguars
got a run back in the bot-
tom of the inning, but
would eventually fall 12-1.
Despite the result, the 25-8
season was the best in the
program's 18-year history,
and served as motivation
coming into 2008.
"We lost seven position
players," Malizia said. "We
do have two position play-
ers coming back and we
do have pitching coming
back."
With Mike McGee and
Durden graduating, the
ball is in the capable
hands of three of Malizia's
returning players in Kre-
stalude, Hunter and
Colton Rudd. Hunter got
the start in this year's sea-
son opener and showed he
hasn't skipped a beat since
2007.
The junior allowed just
one hit while striking out
eight in five innings. Rudd
also impressed, pitching
the final two innings, strik-
ing out five to earn the
save.
Rudd also went 2-for-3 at
the plate, as the Jaguars
defeated Fort Pierce West-
wood 6-1 to take the win.
In the second game of
the season, it was Kre-
stalude's turn on the hill
and he didn't disappoint.
The senior also went deep
into the game, going 5 2/3
innings while giving up
two hits and striking out
six.
Hunter had an RBI single
while left fielder John Tut-
tle went 2-for-4 with two
RBIs in the 4-0 win over
Seminole Ridge.
"He's done a great job for
us," Malizia said of Tuttle.
Hunter again got the
start on Feb. 20 against
District 13-5A rival Fort
Pierce Central and contin-

ued his 'dominance on the
mound. The southpaw
pitched a two-hitter while
striking out six in the
team's 13-1 win over the
Cobras. Tuttle had two
RBIs, as did center fielder
Gabriel Viso. Steve McGee
went 2-for-3 with two RBIs,
further solidifying his rep-
utation as one of the elite
catchers in the game.
"He's our captain on the
field," Malizia said. "He's
done a great job behind the
plate.
"He's been a starter since
he was a freshman. He's one
of the best catchers in the
state."
Another player to keep an
eye on as the season pro-
gresses is third baseman
Cory Reid. Though just a
freshman, Reid has turned a
lot of heads on the Port St.
Ilucie staff.
"He's going to be one heck
of a player," Malizia said.
"He's impressed all the
coaches. He has a very

Finding


the best

spot half

the battle

H ow about those blue
fish? The surf has
been the hot spot for
many rod-pullers. Morning
anglers have reported plenty
of action with both up-close
fishing and long-casting. Cut
mullet, spoons and chrome-
,-top water lures are all
working.
As the sun rises, the blue
fish will back off and in will
come the whiting, croaker
and a few pompano. These
fish are in the first trough, so
a very short cast with pieces
of shrimp will catch them all.
To target the pompano, use
a sand flea and a piece of
shrimp. You will then have all
the bases covered.
Snook fishing around the
bridges using deep running
baits has produced plenty of
fish, just not many in the slot.
The Roosevelt Bridge, Port
St. Lucie, and South Bridge in
Fort Pierce are producing
many big fish. Make sure to
bring a camera because most
are too big to take.
Slot size fish have been in
'the flats, which is great if you
are a boater, but a little tough
if you are landlocked.
From little Mud Creek to
Bear Point, several catches of
trout, reds and snook have
been reported. If you can
catch all three in one outing
using live shrimp, you've just
caught yourself a "slam."
Excellent trout bites are
going on throughout the.
area, with lots of slot fish

Before I introduce you
to the latest equip-
ment from the PGA
Merchandise Show, I
thought it would be best to
fill you in on the latest
items available to get you
ready to play your best.
Have you ever watched
Camilo Villegas line up a
putt? The man is so flexible
he makes Gumby jealous.
Thanks to Sarah Chris-
tensen and her "Hole in
One Pilates" DVDs
(www.holeinonepilates.co
m), we have the chance to
become nearly as flexible.
The two-disc DVD set
helps you to consistently
hit the ball farther and
straighterwith reduced
risk of injury and back
pain. The set teaches
golfers a simple injury-
prevention warm-up,
including exercises and
drills to apply the Pilates
techniques to your swing.
Over time you will increase
your core strength,
stability and balance and
build better posture, all of
which combine to improve
your game and your
enjoyment of the game as
well.
One of the best swing
aids that I found at the
show is the Orange Whip
Trainer (www.orangewhip-
trainer.com). ,
Simple and efficient, the
Orange Whip was devel-
oped to improve your golf
swing and provide a core-
muscle workout. Each end
of the Orange Whip has a
unique weighting system
that works together with


JAMES STAMMER
Golf columnist

the flexible shaft to
improve your swing and
physical fitness. The
Orange Whip conditions
the user to maintain
balance and rhythm while
swinging in an athletic
motion that creates greater
power, accuracy and
consistency.
The Orange Whip is
portable, fits easily in a
golf bag or the trunk of a
car, and can be used
indoors and outdoors. I've
used it a few times a week,
for just a few minutes each
time and have noticed an
improved swing and
conditioning.
Another great swing aid
is the new Medicus 460cc
double-hinged driver
(www. medicusgolf com).
Many of you are familiar
with the original double -
hinged iron. The idea
behind the hinge is to
provide immediate
feedback. The hinged club

14TH ANNUAL

GOLF TOURNAMENT
Presented by


your limit, but there's enough
to keep your attention.
There are plenty of drum,
sheephead, ladys, macs and
jacks to keep everybody busy.
Trolling south offshore,
from 110 to 180 feet, has been
the spot for 15- to 20-pound


quality dolphin. There still
haven't been any sightings of
cobia.
The early angler has been
the most productive in that
zone. Bottom fish, running
60-feet deep, south to the
Loran Tower, have been the


most productive.
Do not forget the bucket of
ice if you want to keep your
catch as fresh as possible.
Henry Caimatto is the
owner ofSnook Nook Bait and
Tackle Shop in ensen Beach.


Stammer
From page B13


will let you know when you
are swinging incorrectly by
breaking down at the exact
point where there is a flaw
in the swing. Likewise, the
hinge will stay in alignment
with the shaft if the club is
swung correctly and you
will be able to hit balls with
ease.
After several attempts and
a little patience, you will not
only be able to swing the
club without breaking the
hinge, but pound drives
right down the middle. The
swing and muscle memory
that you learn carry over
quickly and easily to the
swing you use when it
counts.
The Medicus 460 driver
also comes with an instruc-
tional DVD, manual and
two bonus DVDs "Swing
Like a Pro" and "Top Tips
from Top Pros" to help get
your game on track.
I have been having
trouble with a little arthritis
in my fingers. The XTensor
(www.thextensor.com) is a
device that you put on your
hand to work and flex your
fingers in an opposite
direction from what you do
during the normal course


of your day. It is also the
2007 winner of the Medical
Design Excellence Award.
Think of the XTensor as a
Bow Flex for your hands.
Using the Xtensor strength-
ens muscles virtually off
limits to all other devices.
Exercising the muscles that
open the hands helps
improve finger joint range
of motion for people
suffering with arthritis
pain. The Xtensor is the
first product able to
precisely target and
strengthen the finger
extensor muscles, while
also providing a full,
natural path of motion
necessary for stimulating
the muscles in the elbow,
which can help reduce pain
from tennis elbow.
It is also an essential tool
for people recovering from
tendonitis in the wrist,
overcoming the effects of a
stroke or suffering from
hand stiffness.
It's easy to practice your
putting in the house. There
isn't much chance of
breaking a lamp, window or
the television with a ball
rolling along the carpet.
But what about being


able to hit a few chips and
practice those delicate
greenside shots inside the
comfort of your den? This is
where the Sfear golf ball
(www.sfeargolf com) comes
in.
The Sfear is an engi-
neered, perfectly balanced
thermal rubber sphere with
unique finger-like exten-
sions from a solid rubber
core, which combine to
create a practice ball that
feels just like a regulation
ball when struck, but
without the danger.
Remember the koosh ball
that your children used to
play with? Well that is
basically what the Sfear ball
resembles, only with a
more solid feel, and reliable
performance. The SFear
ball bounces easily off
lamps, windows and other
valuables without breaking-
them.
James Stammer has been
an avid golfer and golf
enthusiast for 30 years. He
hosts the Tuesday Night
Golf Show on WPSL 1590-
AM radio station. Contact
