PORT ST. LUCIE Near
the gates to Tradition
Field, fans dressed in gray
and orange New York Mets
jerseys lined up for tickets
last week.
St. Lucie County mer-
chants and officials saw
another color in the crowd
- green.
Throughout St. Lucie
County, demand for hotel


rooms, rental cars and
restaurants surges each
spring, when the Mets
return.
"The Mets really do
make a huge impact on
our local economy," said

Vernon Smith appeared on the cover of Florida Bank-
ing Magazine in 2004 and was more recently honored
as Entrepreneur of the Year at Indian River Community
College in Vero Beach Thursday, March 6.


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
VERO BEACH Vernon
Smith, founder of Riverside
Bank and Hometown News,
was named Entrepreneur of
the Year for his courage,
determination, optimism
and perseverance, said dig-
nitaries, family and friends
last week.
He also has heart, said
those who came to honor
him at the ceremony.
'As most of you know,
Riverside's logo has a big
heart," Cindy Robbins,
Riverside Bank president
and chief operating officer,
said during the March 6
award ceremony. "The next
time you look at it, don't
think about the Riverside
Bank you're looking at, think
about that being Vernon's
heart."
"Every day, he lives the


bank's core values by show-
ing how much he cares," she
continued.
Awarded by the Indian
River Community College
Foundation, the Entrepre-
neur of the Year honor rec-
ognizes entrepreneurial
spirit and exceptional busi-
ness achievement. Through
the Dan K. Richardson
Entrepreneurship program,
the IRCC Foundation pro-
motes awareness and appre-
ciation of the free enterprise
system.
Mr. Smith, the ninth
entrepreneur to receive the
honor since the program
began in 2000, credited his
success to focus and perse-
verance. Giving back to the
community, he said, is also
crucial.
"I think it's very important
to help other people," Mr.

weigh in,

vote against

PSL bridge

BY RITA HART
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE Over 300
sixth-grade students at Southern
Oaks Middle School looked at all
sides of building a bridge across
the St. Lucie River, and in the end
a majority decided it was a bad
idea altogether.
The students, known as the
"Talons Team," listened carefully
to the experts, chose differing
positions and debated the issues.
After doing so, a total of 162 of
them voted against the building of
any bridge across the St. Lucie
River that would connect U.S. 1
with Port St. Lucie's Crosstown
Parkway. Those in favor of build-
ing a bridge numbered 145.
As reported on Feb. 29 by the
Hometown News, the students
gathered at Oxbow Ecological
Center Feb. 21 to hear a panel of
local experts on the pros and cons
of building such a bridge, as well
as which of three possible routes
for the bridge might be most ben-
eficial to the city.
Those officials included Vice
Mayor Jack Kelly, County Com-
missioner Doug Coward, city
engineer Walter England, Indian
Riverkeeper Kevin Stinnette, St.
Lucie County Sheriff's Office Chief
Deputy Garry Wilson and John
Krane, director of Transportation

Impact
From page Al
nomic officials said a similar
boost comes each March.
"We're having a banner
year because it's the last year
the Dodgers will be here,"
said Lori Burns, tourism
director for the Indian River
County Chamber of Com-
merce.
After six decades, the


team is set to vacate
Dodgertown for an Arizona
facility next spring. Officials
are courting another ball
club, believed to be the Bal-
timore Orioles, to roost at
Holman Stadium.
Officials said St. Lucie
County merchants rake in
more than $3 million during
March, according to figures
from Smith Travel Research
in Hendersonville, Tenn.
"It's probably a conserva-


tive number," Mrs. Victorio
said.
Nick Gandy, spokesman
for the Tallahassee-based
Florida Sports Foundation,
said each major league fran-
chise generates between $25
million to $30 million for its
host community.
Eight years ago, when
rumors swirled about the
Dodgers heading west, the
Indian River County Cham-
ber organized a "Keep Our


SPACE MAINTAINERS
Q: What are space maintainers?
A: Baby teeth may seem like cute, ultimately disposable items. But they actually play a
critical role in the development of the mouth. In addition to letting a child chew and
speak, baby teeth hold space in the jaws for permanent teeth. If a baby tooth is lost
prematurely, whether to decay or injury, its neighboring teeth may shift into the gap.
This can cause later problems when permanent teeth come in and don't have are .
served spot. the result can be cramped, crooked teeth that, in addition to being
unsightly, can affect speech and eating. B Ai.'
One way to address this potential problem is the use of a space maintainer, a device your dentist can
insert to keep the spot open for th permanent tooth. The device might be a temporary crown, wire loop m
or a spring that spans the gap and prevents teeth from shifting toward the open spot. The dentist will
remove the device when the permanent tooth is ready to erupt. LO
This is one of the reasons why it's important for even the smallest of patients to receive thorough dental
examinations and appropriate treatment. Ask your dentist about right time to bring your child in for his
or her first visit

a month of exhibition
games each year. Fans
spend $139 per person per
day, according to Florida
Sports Foundation figures.
Grapefruit League games
attracted a record 1.7 mil-
lion fans last March, out-
pacing the previous record
of 1.6 million fans set in
March 2006. Slightly more
than 50 percent of those
fans traveled from out of
state good news for
businesses that rely on a
spring training boost.
Some of those out-of-
state fans bought tickets at
Tradition Field last week.
Villanova University stu-
dent Lauren Giselman
brought five friends from
the Philadelphia-area
campus to Port St. Lucie
for spring break.
Aside from the Mets
game, "we go to the beach,
shop and go out to dinner,"
Ms. Giselman said.
When a fan favorite
comes to town, attendance
spikes, too.
"Wherever the Yankees
and Red Sox go, there's a
big crowd," Mr. Gandy
said.
Statewide numbers are
set to decline next spring,
however, when the
Dodgers set up camp in
Glendale, Ariz., and the
Cleveland Indians exit
Winter Haven for the
Grand Canyon State.
When the first spring
training economic impact
studies were conducted
several years ago, the
efforts "opened the eyes of
Florida government," Mr.
Gandy said.
Gov. Charlie Crist took
notice, too. He revived the
annual Governor's Base-
ball Dinner last month, an
event that fell by the way-
side for more than a
decade.
"Each spring, 18 major
league teams, bring base-
ball up close and personal


to Florida's residents and
visitors," Mr. Crist said just
before the start of spring
training.
"The Grapefruit League
contributes to our state
economy by generating a
half-billion dollars each
year and we are grateful to
all the teams who call
Florida home during
spring training,". he con-
tinued.
Moreover, spring train-
ing is a beacon in an other-
wise gloomy economy,
officials said.
"The industries really
affected by this downturn
have been manufacturing,
construction, finance and
business services," said
Gwenda Thompson, presi-
dent and CEO of the Work-
force Development Board
of the Treasure Coast.
"Nobody mentioned hos-
pitality or retail services at
all."
Hotel occupancy rates,
another indicator of the
spring training windfall,
jump during March,
tourism officials in both
counties said.
In 2007, 84.2 percent of
St. Lucie County hotel
rooms were occupied last
March, compared with a
55.3 percent occupancy
rate for the entire year.
Ms. Burns, the Indian
River County Chamber
official, fielded calls from
Dodgers fans in California
and Nevada who asked if
local hotel rooms were still
available.
Port St. Lucie, where the
Mets began training in
1988, also continues to
draw fans.
"I can't even get a tee
time on my golf course,"
said Linda Cox, executive
director of the St. Lucie
County Chamber of Com-
merce. "So I think there are
people here."

REVIEW

Boy who accidentally shot friend
in 2006 in trouble with the law

PORT ST. LUCIE In November of 2006, Dustin
Williams, then 17, took a .380-caliber gun from a Martin
County Sheriff's deputy patrol car that was parked out-
side his home.
Believing the gun was empty, police say Mr. Williams
pointed it at the head of his best friend, Robert Scott Jr.,
and fired. A bullet that was, in fact, still in the chamber
hit Mr. Scott in the head, and he died the next day.
Mr. Williams initially pleaded not guilty to charges of
manslaughter and grand theft and was awaiting trial.
However, he was expected to go to court on March 7 to
accept a plea deal in that matter.
Instead, he is in St. Lucie County Jail on new charges,
including two counts of attempted vehicle burglary, pos-
session of 20 grams or less of marijuana and possession
of drug paraphernalia.
Port St. Lucie police say they responded to reports of
attempted vehicle break-ins at 3 a.m. on March 5, in the
200 block of Southeast Duval Avenue. Both victims,
awakened by a car alarm, gave police a description of the
suspect and St. Lucie County Sheriff's K-9 unit respond-
ed to the scene, tracking Mr. Williams to a vacant lot in
the 1100 block of Southeast Laika Lane.
After Mr. Williams was arrested, authorities discovered
on him a black bag with 1.3 grams of marijuana and a
glass pipe.
At press time, Mr. Williams, now 18, remained in St.
Lucie County Jail on $31,000 bond.

Career criminals will have
lots of time to play Bingo

ST. LUCIE COUNTY Two Miami men described as
career criminals have been sentenced for the 2004
armed robbery of Bingo Madness, 7139 Riomar Drive,
Port St. Lucie.
On Feb. 29, Circuit Court Judge Gary L. Sweet sen-
tenced Angel David Massas, 26 and Wallace Lee Cowins,
30, to life in prison for their roles in the crime.
"Massas and Cowins used a shotgun and a semi-auto-
matic pistol when they robbed Bingo Madness around 1
a.m. on June 9, 2004," said St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken
Mascara in a prepared statement. "They smashed their
way into the business, terrorized the seven people
inside, .stole money and other items and drove off."
Shortly after the robbers fled in a van, deputies fol-
lowed them for several miles, until the suspects jumped
out of their vehicle at Savanna Ridge Elementary School
and ran into the woods. When apprehended, they gave
false names to the deputies.

Smith


From page Al1
Smith said. "I always go for the
underdog. It's just something
about me, that I always want
to help other people."
Mr. Smith, his wife, Bren-
da, and Riverside Bank
employees continue to build
upon a legacy of generosity
and service, said Dr. Edwin
Massey, IRCC president.
"He truly is an innovative
person," Dr. Massey contin-
ued.
John Giordano, former
Riverside Bank executive
vice president, recounted
the early years of Riverside
Bank, when the small staff
worked out of a trailer along
Okeechobee Road in Fort
Pierce. He said Mr. Smith's
perseverance paid off when
that first Riverside Bank
opened in 1982.
Today, Riverside Bank
encompasses 65 offices in
10 Florida counties, with
more than 1,000 employees
and $4.5 billion in assets.
"Because he has been
here, Fort Pierce and this


area has never been the
same, and I say that in a
very, very positive way," Dr.
Massey said.
Ms. Robbins attributed
Mr. Smith's success to his
optimistic outlook.
"Vernon not only sees the
glass half-full, he always
sees it running over," she
said.
In addition to Riverside
Bank, Mr. Smith owns and
operates a cattle ranch, cit-
rus groves, FM radio sta-
-tions and Hometown News,
17 weekly newspapers with
a circulation of 500,000
copies, which cover six
Florida counties.
More than 200 dignitaries,
members of the Smith fami-
ly, friends and past Entre-
preneurs of the Year attend-
ed the March 6 reception at
the Dan K. Richardson Cen-
ter on the IRCC Mueller
Campus.
The event's theme, "A
Hometown Hero with a
Heart of Gold," nodded to
the iconic Riverside Bank
logo. Tables were decorated
with heart-shaped center-
pieces filled with red roses,

Vernon and Brenda's
favorite flower.
Their daughter, Kathy
Smith Petrone, said advice
and guidance from her par-
ents helped her and her sib-
lings grow into successful
businesspeople.
"In the big picture, which
is always the way Vernon
looks at things, he said there
will be some bumps in the


road, but we hope our suc-
cesses far outweigh those
bumps," she said.
Mr. Smith urged other
young entrepreneurs to set
goals and persevere.
"If we do have the proper
goals, it gives us a road map
to success," he said. "And it's
amazing what we can
accomplish when we have
that road map."


BANK


The Riverside Family would like to congratulate our

founder, Vernon Smith, for being named Entrepreneur

of the Year by the IRCC Foundation. The Foundation

recognized what Riverside customers and employees

have known for a long time-that Vernon exemplifies

what's great about this part of Florida.


Rancher. Citrus grower. Banker. Entrepreneur. Whatever

the venture, Vernon draws on his homegrown dedication

and perseverance to get the job done.


We're happy to recognize the man who worked

so hard to build Riverside Bank for the people

Virtually every car dealer of eauca
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.

my customers realized I was now giving them

Poor management in Port St. Lucie

"I'm from the government, I'm here to help." Those words
have often fallen short of achieving the promise.
It centers on what might be considered a threat to home-
owners; that services would be drastically reduced ifAmend-
ment One weren't rejected.
Most saw past the ruse, and passed it by more than the
required 60 percent, yet the fight goes on.
In my many years in this country, I can remember a few
occasions where local/state/national governments have
enacted reductions in tax burdens. More is better to keep us
(they) operating without laying off police/fire and critical
services.
We are not to consider the pork projects, which have been
given a free reign when the money was available, and the local
economy was thriving. Giving someone with a non-partisan
economic look at the budget can, even now, at this late stage,
find where we can manage for less.
The truth is that spending on projects like the "City Center,"
and giving away grants for people to occupy spaces at "River
Walk' that didn't materialize was without any good planning.
We were to be without Christmas decorations until a good
citizen offered to take on the expense. The Christmas tree at
City Hall was rented for thousands of dollars for lack of a live,
permanent tree.
The Cross Town Parkway is needed, but why didn't the
planners think far enough ahead to realize where a bridge
needed to be built to cross the St. Lucie River?
When money was flowing in the past, there had to be places
to spend the newfound revenue. For those who haverfn't been in
government service, it is spend what is given, or there is no
chance of increasing the budget for the next fiscal year.
I'm familiar with the St. Lucie Sheriff's Office airborne unit at
our airport. It is minimally staffed and performs a very impor-
tant service (2-3 percent of the department's budget). They
have two choppers on call to aid in apprehension of those
having committed a crime.
I'm sure we have seen how effective they are in tracking, and
protecting our officers on the ground.
You can run, but you can't escape our deputies who have you
in their sights from the sky.With quick speed, ability to light up
a fleeing felon, and infrared to track body heat, it is a valuable
service. With many areas in our county that are undeveloped,
one can imagine the danger of flushing out someone who has
nothing to lose in the brush. The chopper in the air is the
depuf on the ground best friend. This is an operation we
must keep.
The Trauma-Hawk chopper has been released to a private
firm, and is no longer part of the police/fire departments. The
new chopper service is primarily for transport between
hospitals. If you're on a highway, about to breathe your last
gasp of air, no longer expect an airborne rescue. You better
make it to a hospital, and then be prepared to pay $10000 to get
to a trauma hospital.
We must tighten our belts and hold the feet to the fire of our
politicians as to what we need and what can be cut. We'll
bounce back, but lets not think were down to eating the "plant
seed."

Bravo to PSLHS drama department

I just wanted to thank the performers and the musicians
from 'Beauty and the Beast.' It was an awesome produc-
tion. I had four generations watching it, aging from 87 to
three, and we all thought that it was wonderful. We can't
wait fot Peter Pan.

Handicapped parking spaces are misused

I was under the impression that the disabled and handi-
capped areas for parking were designated for those per-
sons. Not for the city of Port St. Lucie Engineering service,
truck No. E27, that was at the CVS pharmacy at the corner
of U.S. 1 and Tiffany Drive. If everyone else has to abide by
these rules, then so should the city of Port St. Lucie. Where
are the cops when you need them?

More on the Catholic Church

This is in regards to the churchgoer that was wrong for
leaving after communion. They stated that they had to
. leave church after communion, and a person responded by
jumping all over them. I think it is the same church I went
. to some years ago when my husband was very sick and on
oxygen. I went to Easter Mass and my husband stayed
home. I stood in the standing room, and after communion
I went to leave. I asked for a church bulletin, as my hus-
band wanted to read it when I got home. A man told me
that I had to wait like everyone else. When I got home, my
husband asked for the bulletin and I had to tell him what
happened. He asked me if I thought the Catholic Church
will ever change. The thing is, he died five days later. And


that's a sad memory. I think that's part of the problem with
the church; they just don't care. I think I know what I'm
talking about; I'm 86 years old. I went'to Catholic school
and Mass my entire life.

Jeans are not 'dressy'

This is about jeans. All I see is jeans. It seems like nobody
wants to dress up anymore. The designers are even putting
holes in them. I wouldn't wear them in the backyard. Even
celebrities wear them on TV with a blazer and a tie. Nobody
wants to dress up.

Getting paid for nothing

I witnessed two Port St. Lucie meter readers pull up to my
neighbor's house and only one got out. He stood there for
10 minutes. The other guy just sat in the truck. And they are
getting paid for this! We should really watch this kind of
thing.

Only math that matters is at the voting booth

Polls are a mathematical equation, and the end result can
be manipulated to indicate a specific trend.
The point: People are the final mathematical equation
when they cast their vote at the polls.
The results are final (no manipulating).

Send bill to Mexico for care of illegals

America needs to wake up and tell Mexico's president to
help close off the borders between our countries.
Mexico hasn't made an effort to even try to stop their
people from coming into our country illegally. They are
taking over jobs, and they get to go to our hospitals free
thanks to the American tax payers who foot their bills. Our
government should send the Mexico government a bill and
tell them to pay their share for not watching their borders.

There is no comparison
between communism and taxation

The writer who wrote about comparing taxation to
communism must be unhappy with his taxes. He obviously
has his facts wrong and perhaps fell asleep during history
class in high school.
Communism and taxation the same? I think not;
(www.answers.yahoo.com defines communism as) an
economic system in which capital is owned by private
government. Contrast (that) with capitalism. All stores,
factories, schools, etc., are owned by the state. Then all
profits are equally distributed among the masses. Sounds
like a good idea? Not when power-hungry dictators, such
as Josef Stalin, rule. He controlled everything and eliminat-
ed everyone (who) even remotely got in his way.
(According to the Department of Treasury and Finance
Web site, www. tenders. tas.gov.au) taxation (is) "a compul-
sory levy or impost which the government imposes on
transactions, inputs, documents, property and certain
activities for the purpose of raising revenue."
Yes, taxes are in place to raise revenue for you.
Do you like your nice, wide highways and interstates? Do
you like checking out that book at the public library for
free? Are you glad that your children are entitled to a free
education through the 12th grade?
Then you can thank taxes. It's just a way for everyone to
chip in a little at a time so that everyone will benefit.
So the reader who sees no difference between commu-
nism and taxation should perhaps rent some documen-
taries about Josef Stalin. I'm sure after seeing the travesties
he committed in the name of his country and communism,
the reader will be a little more happy with paying his taxes!
Enjoy your freedom. Many people in the world do not get


that chance, especially in communist countries.

Why are commercials so aggravating?

Are (television) commercials deliberately made to be
aggravating so we will remember the product?
In the asterisk commercial, I am bothered by the man
driving with his left hand, holding a cup in his right hand
and looking over his shoulder while he's talking.
In the commercial with the father and son sitting in the
car in the driveway, how did the father get the car in the
driveway without pushing the (easy) button.
Why are the men singing and laughing in the erectile
dysfunction commercial? Most of them look too young to
really need that type of medication.
Lastly, why are the people in the herpes commercial
smiling? I don't think that's anything to smile about.

Cashier just wants some common courtesy

I have something to say about being kind to others. I
am a cashier at a local mart, and I dread going in to work
every day because the environment there is so hostile.
My supervisors are great, but the problem is with the
customers. I greet every customer with enthusiasm,
however useless it may prove. I do my best to bag every-
thing perfectly. I can't please everyone every time. That
doesn't seem to matter.
A woman once (asked) me, "How long have you been
working here?"
I said, "A little while. Why?"
She said, "Oh, cause you can't bag to save your life."
I was so shocked. I've had people throw things at me,
scream at me, harass my other customers, throw a fit and
refuse to leave my line, even report fights to my supervi-
sor that had never happened, all over something I could-
n't control, like a price discrepancy, a card that was
declined or maybe because I rang up something twice.
Most of the people just straight up ignore me. I get so
depressed from all the ignorance and malice while

Just because you had a bad day, I don't get paid extra to
put up with your attitude. I am a person, too. You don't
have to converse with me; just have the common courtesy
to smile back.


Letters

Dear Editor,.

As this year's United Way Campaign Chair, I would like
to extend my thanks to everyone in St. Lucie County who
has already contributed to this year's campaign. Your
generosity is so important to those in need in our commu-
nity.
Our fundraising campaign will be coming to an end
soon and westill need help from the community to reach
our $1.9 million goal for the year.
With your help, United Way of St. Lucie County can
continue to support programs that address the critical
issues of this community like the need for good child
care, adult daycare, hunger, homelessness, drug abuse,
and support for the mentally and physically disabled.
For the last 45 years, the people of St. Lucie County
have opened their hearts and improved lives in this
community. This has made a world of difference to our
friends, family and neighbors who were in need.
Please call United Way at (772) 464-5300 to find out
how you can contribute to this year's campaign. Your
contribution will allow us to do so much more than help
people in need now; it will change lives for years to come.

Terri Sloan-Bartz

Instant messaging provides a


vital link for families, friends


re you one of the
millions of computer
users who have
discovered instant messag-
ing?
By instant messaging, I'm
referring to those popular
"buddy list" programs that
let you chat with friends
while you are online. Do
you use one? I do.
In fact, I have accounts
set up with Yahoo Instant
Messenger, AOL Instant
Messenger, MSN Messen-
ger and ICQ.
I have so many instant
messaging accounts that
sometimes it can be hard
to get any work done with
all the chatter. It's OK
though. I can slink into
invisible mode with all of
them and see who is
online, but to them I
appear offline. Quiet
ensues so I can get some
uninterrupted work done,
but I can also still keep
track of who's online.
To some, instant messag-
ing can seem annoying
(they haven't discovered
the invisible mode yet) and
to others, a godsend. With
instant messaging, many
nine-to-five cube dwellers
in corporate America can
keep in touch with loved
ones without being on the
phone with them all day.
Some of the services even
work rather neatly with
your Web cam, allowing
video chat and even, when
conditions are right, full-
blown video conferencing.
All this from a little
program that loves to
launch on startup.
So, what's involved? What
does one need to get
started with instant
messaging?
First and foremost, you
need an Internet connec-
tion. If you are an AOL
subscriber, you have a
buddy list that's already
built into your AOL


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This

account. Your buddy list
allows you to chat instantly
with any of your buddies
that are online using AOL
or are online using AIM
(AOL instant messenger).
You don't have to be a
member of AOL to use
AIM; you can download it
at www.AIM.com, sign up
and use it through whatev-
er Internet provider you
choose.
Two more popular
instant messaging pro-
grams are MSN Messenger
and Yahoo Messenger.
Again, these programs
need an Internet connec-
tion to work, but what they
do is the same: they let you
keep a list of friends and
show you when they are
online.
Some of the features are
different. For instance,
with MSN Messenger, you
can allow a buddy to take
over your computer to help
with a repair. You can't do
that with Yahoo Messenger.
When one of your friends
is online, all you have to do
is double-click on their
little icon, and you can
start chatting with them
instantly. Some services
even let you link to your
cell phone, allowing you to
see your buddy list and
chat with them from the
road.
So what's the catch?


The one drawback to
these applications is that
your friends have to be
running the same instant
messenger programs as
you: That's why I have so
many different ones that I
log into. Some of my
friends are using Yahoo
Messenger, some MSN
Messenger, some AIM and
so on.
Sometimes persuading a
friend to sign up can be
tricky, but I have found
that most people enjoy the
benefits once they take the
plunge.
So which one should you
sign up with? Probably the
easiest way to choose
which messenger program
to use is to ask your
friends. Send an e-mail to
each one and ask which
instant messenger he uses.
If you have some friends
using AIM and some
friends using MSN, you
can install both or try to
persuade your friends to
switch to one common
program, but that's unlike-
ly to happen.
Once you are signed up,
the next step is to send
notices to your friends
inviting them to join your
buddy list. If they are
already using the program,
they can just accept you as
a buddy and add you to
their list. If they don't have
the program, they will get
an e-mail with a link that
they can follow to down-
load and install the pro-
gram.
Once you get your buddy
list built, you'll find staying
in touch with family and
friends takes on a new
dimension.

Debate
From page Al


and Planning for the engi-
neering consultant firm Keith
and Schnars.
Back at their school, the
students spent the next
week reviewing the informa-
tion and forming debate
teams that were either for
the building of a bridge or
against it.
On Feb. 29, the teams were
split up into morning and
afternoon sessions. During
each session, five sets of
debate teams presented
their arguments to the stu-
dents who were present.
Those students then voted
on a "debate ballot" for each
set of debate teams, rating
the teams on their opening
speeches, rebuttals and clos-
ing speeches. At the bottom
of the ballot, each student
indicated which team they
thought had won the debate.
The debate teams had
obviously done their home-
work, and had taken the
comments of the adults they
heard the week before to
heart. Some of the com-
ments made by those debat-
ing included:
*"When you add a bridge,
they just want to build more.
More people will be added
to the population. People
will lose their homes and the
environment will be affect-
ed."
*"What is the problem
with destroying a few homes
when we already have so
many empty houses?"
*"Evacuation will be'
quicker. Emergency
response time will be faster."
*"In the future, there will
still be more traffic. If you
have a heart attack, you can
be airlifted or we can build a
hospital closer to where you
live."
*"No matter where we
build the bridge, we will
cross the river and disturb
the animals' habitat."
*"A bridge will critically
damage our ecosystem. This
town was made for its glori-
ous views of nature."
*"It would take only eight
minutes (to get to the hospi-
tal via a bridge using route
1C), just like Vice Mayor
Kelly told us."
*"The state claims they


are giving you money to
build the bridge, but they
are not giving the whole
amount."
Some students who felt a
bridge was necessary were
proponents of a specific
bridge route.
"Route 6A goes over zero
acres of preservation land.
Choose 6A and you'll be on
your way," said one student.
The debates were moni-
tored by science teacher
Lea-Ann Patrick and math
teacher Taleese Walsh.
"Miss Walsh and I are so
proud of you," said Ms.
Patrick to the students. "No
matter what happens in the
debates, it's okay. You have
confidence and you can be
proud of yourselves."

T T fe RAVEL



Tour features Kentucky Derby


sometimes you come
across something that is
not on your everyday
radar, but you know a little
about.
Although many know of the
Kentucky Derby and that it is
probably the most renowned
horse race in the world, most
people have never attended.
I had worked around the
thoroughbred industry. That's
where I met and married my
husband, who happens to be
a former thoroughbred
trainer. He attended the derby
in his earlier days. However, I
never made the trip to wear a
big hat on derby day.
It is a most exciting day with
people all dressed up in their
finest and the women
wearing hats bearing every-
thing from bows to fruit. ,
The excitement starts long
before the big day. It begins
months before by watching
the best 3-year-old horses in
the country win major
"stakes" races at various
racetracks around the
country.
Then, as it coming down to
the days before the derby, and
if you are lucky enough to be
in or near the industry, there
are unbelievably decked out
events. One event is bigger
than the other. It's all hustle
and bustle.
The major breeding farms
may put on exclusive shindigs
for owners and trainers,
hoping to sell one of their
farm's breed of horses. There
are also many other industry
folks that put on these very
high-end events on the days

home, you have the added
benefit of the leaves actually
helping to clear the air.
Plants in the home can also
help raise humidity levels in
the home. This can be most
important during the dry


winter months. Plants can
also help absorb noise and
actually lessen dust in the
home.
Many tests have been done
on the relationship between
blood pressure and garden-
ing. Studies have shown that
people who frequently tend
to their gardens have lower
blood pressure levels.
Gardening should never be a
substitute for regular medica-
tion or healthcare, however.
With the arrival of spring
comes the job of pruning all
your favorite plants. Not only
do you need to decide on
which plants to prune, but
you also must choose which
tool will suit your needs the
best.
There are basically two
types of pruners: anvil and
bypass.


Anvil pruners work by
pushing a sharp blade against
a flat piece of metal called an
"anvil."
The bypass pruner works
more like a pair of scissors.
The tool has two sharp blades
that work together to cut the
plant material.
In general, the bypass type
is the preferred choice, as it
will make a cleaner cut that
will ultimately heal faster
Spring is a time when many
people decide to replant their
houseplants. Maybe you need
to'put them in a larger pot or
maybe you just want to create
a new look with a decorative
planter. To ensure you don't
transmit any diseases from
plant to plant, clean the old
pot with a 1 percent solution
of bleach before reusing the
pot for another plant.
For added safety, you can
also use this method before
placing your plants in a
newly purchased pot.
With the arrival of spring,
many people may decide to
move a favorite indoor
plant to an outdoor envi-
ronment. In order to make
this process work, place the
plant in its new location for
short intervals at first, and
then gradually increase the
plant's exposure to its new
location over the course of
a couple of weeks.
Even with all the precau-
tions, the plant may still
drop some leaves and/or
buds. This is normal and
the plant should make a
full recovery.
That's all for this weeks
column and I hope you:
enjoyed it. Just a reminder:
you can contact me with
your plant questions by e-
mail or by using my new
garden forum. The forum is
located at www.hometown-
garden.com.

Does Earth hold center stage in God's creation?


UFOs and intelligent
life on other planets
are popular and
controversial topics.
Many are asking what the
Bible has to say regarding
aliens.
The Bible does not explicit-
ly confirm or deny the
existence of intelligent
beings from other planets.
The Bible does teach
implicitly that God's created
intelligent beings only
include angels, mankind,
and animals.
According to the Genesis
account, the stars and
planets were not created
before the Earth.
Earth is not the result of
billions of years of stellar
evolution; it was created on
the first day of creation,
before any other planet or
star existed. God created the
sun, moon, and stars on the
fourth day of the creation
week.
2 Peter 3:10 says: "The day
of the Lord will come like a
thief, the heavens will
disappear with a roar; the
elements will be destroyed
by fire."


The 'day of the Lord' refers
to the return of Christ to
planet Earth. "Like a thief"
means that many will be
surprised; it will happen at a
time when many are not
expecting it. The "heavens"
and the "elements," meaning
the present universe, will
disappear, be destroyed by
fire.
2 Peter 3:13a declares, "But
in keeping with his promise,
we are looking forward to a
new heaven and a new
earth."
God's purpose for people is
not destruction, but re-
creation. He will purify the
heavens and the earth with
fire; then He will create them
anew. Born-again Christians
joyously look forward to the
restoration of the entire
universe, including planet
Earth.
What does this have to do
with extraterrestrial life?
The reason for this
destruction and re-creation
clearly is based on God's
plan for earthlings. If God
created intelligent life in
other galaxies, it seems
unlikely and unfair that their


DAVID GOODE
Religion columnist
world would be destroyed
because of God's plan for
Earth and its inhabitants.
Why will God destroy the
planets and stars along with
Earth? When Adam sinned in
the Garden of Eden, it
affected all of creation, the
entire universe; Romans.8:20
says: "The creation was
subjected to frustration, not
by its own choice, but by the
will of the one (meaning
Adam) who subjected it."
Why did God create such a
vast universe if it was only
for the inhabitants of Earth?
What was His purpose?


The Bible tells us that God
created the sun, moon, and
stars to give light and to
assist mankind. One reason
that God made the moon,
stars, and solar system was
to provide a way for us to
distinguish the passage of
time: days, months, and
years. Another reason was
for the prediction of seasons.
Without the heavenly
bodies, the keeping of time
and navigation would have
been much more difficult.
Ancient people used the
movement of stars to
produce their calendars and
to navigate across great
distances. It is believed that
some migrating birds use
constellations for guidance
in flight.
Psalm 19:1 states: "The
heavens declare the glory of
God, the skies proclaim the
work of His hands."
Another purpose for the
myriad stars, planets, and
mysteries of the heavens is
to bring glory to God. As we
gaze at the beauty of the
heavens, we get a glimpse of
God's might and power. He is
greater than we could ever


imagine, even greater than
His spectacular creation, the
universe.
The Bible does not tell us
that intelligent life exists
elsewhere in our universe.
God is all-powerful and
could have created such life
had He desired, but it seems
obvious from scripture that
He did not.
The timetable or schedule
of events for this present
universe is measured by
God's dealings with us,
Earth's inhabitants.
It appears that God has
created you and me orf
'planet Earth as the sole
beneficiaries of his fellow-
ship for now and eternity.
This relationship with God
that He offers through His
son Jesus Christ is so unique
that God's angels are eager to
observe it in action, accord-
ing to 1 Peter 1:12.
It is our awesome privilege
to be the center of attention
in our vast and amazing
universe. So how do we
explain the photographs and
other evidence of UFOs?
Theories abound; I'm sure
you have an opinion or two


of your own. I also have an
opinion regarding this
phenomenon.
If you would like to share
your thoughts and know
what I think about this
subject, contact me by
phone or e-mail. Let's toss it
around and have some fun
in the process. Even better,
stop by Heart of Worship
this Sunday so we can
discuss it.
After each Sunday service,
we offer free gift cards for
food and other items for
those in need. We also offer
free piano/keyboard classes
for all ages, by note or ear. I
will explain how to use your
keyboard buttons; it's fun.
The Rev. David Goode is the
senior pastor at Heart of
Worship Ministries, which
meets on Sundays at 3 p.m.
in the arts and crafts room at
the Port St. Lucie Communi-
ty Center, 2195Airoso Blvd.,

Scammed
From page Al
Port St. Lucie.
Mr. Stanko, 79, whose
sons live in New York and
New Jersey, was then
befriended by Michael
Kahane, 42, shortly after
Mrs. Stanko died. Over time,
the friendship grew to the


point where Mr. Stanko
referred to Mr. Kahane as a
son.
Mr. Kahane, of 2375 N.E.
Ocean Blvd. in Stuart, is now
facing felony charges after
St. Lucie County Sheriff's
deputies allege he stole or
exploited Mr. Stanko by
obtaining cash, checks and
credit cards totaling
$106,800. Deputies also

report Mr. Stanko admitted
to owing Mr. Stanko an addi-
tional $200,000 to $250,000.
In addition to the charges
involving Mr. Stanko, Mr.
Kahane was charged with
exploitation of the elderly in
a matter involving his own
father, Arthur Kahane. In the
summer of 2007, Michael
Kahane moved in with his
father in the 2400 block of
Southwest Cameo Boule-
vard in Port St. Lucie.
Michael Kahane charged
approximately $29,000 on
his father's credit cards
without authorization.
According to Mark Wein-
berg, spokesman for the St.
Lucie County Sheriff's
Office, Michael Kahane
pleaded guilty in that case
and is awaiting sentencing.
The trouble for Mr. Stanko
began in March of 2007,


when Mr. Kahane visited Mr.
Stanko with a check in the
amount of $1,800, drawn on
Mr. Kahane's account.
Telling Mr. Stanko the
funds would be in the
account the next day to
cover the total check
amount, Mr. Kahane report-
edly said he needed money
that day to "take care of
some things." Mr. Kahane
allegedly told Mr. Stanko he
would give him the $1,800
check if Mr. Stanko would
immediately give him the
$800 he needed right away.
Mr. Kahane reportedly told
Mr. Stanko he could then
keep the balance of $1,000
as payment for doing him
this favor.
Mr. Stanko agreed and
gave Mr. Kahane a check for
$800. However, when Mr.
Stanko made several


attempts to deposit the
$1,800 check, it was
returned for insufficient
funds each time.
Questioned about this by
Mr. Stanko, Mr. Kahane
reportedly assured Mr.
Stanko the funds would be
available after Mr. Stanko
deposited two more
checks, one for $1,500 and
one for $500, both written
in the name of Michael
Kahane. At the same time,
Mr.' Kahane asked Mr.
Stanko for another sum of
money in an amount less
than $500. The difference,
according to Mr. Kahane,
was supposed to make up
for any problems caused
by the first insufficient
check.
According to the com-
plaint affidavit, this type of
activity continued. In
addition, Mr. Kahane
secured several credit card
numbers that belonged to
Mr. Stanko's accounts,
reportedly obtaining the
information from monthly
statements in Mr. Stanko's
mailbox. In doing so, Mr.
Kahane was able to add his
name to the accounts as an
authorized user.
Deputies say that Mr.
Stanko also believes Mr.
Kahane went through per-
sonal records in his home
and secured Mr. Stanko's
Social Security number.
When Mr. Stanko began
receiving large bills from
credit card companies, he
questioned Mr. Kahane,
who promised to pay Mr.
Stanko back. However, Mr.
Stanko began receiving
reports from the compa-
nies that Mr. Kahane either
denied making the pur-
chases or made an excuse
for not paying.
The total charges on five
different credit cards
belonging to Mr. Stanko for
purchases he did not make

AND OFF ROAD EQUIPMENT...


total $49,000. Those pur-
chases include a laptop
computer, spa treatments,
cell phones, sports memora-
bilia, restaurant and fast
food expenses and attorney
fees.
Mr. Stanko then began
noticing cash withdrawals
or transfers from his bank
account, totalling $10,092.
Mr. Kahane allegedly with-
drew the funds using Mr.
Stanko's account and PIN
numbers.
Mr. Kahane then pro-
fessed transportation woes
and rang up over $22,000 in
bills on Mr. Stanko's credit
card for a rental vehicle as
well.
In January, Mr. Kahane
approached Mr. Stanko with
a "get rich quick" scheme
and asked for $25,000 for the
plan. Mr. Stanko told Mr.
Kahane he didn't believe in
his schemes anymore, but
Mr. Kahane allegedly
became very angry, telling
Mr. Stanko he wouldn't see
any of his money returned if
he didn't give him the cash.
Mr. Stanko then withdrew
the money from his bank
account and gave it to Mr.
Kahane.
In February, Mr. Stanko's
son and a family friend visit-
ed him. They retrieved Mr.
Stanko's 2006 vehicle from
Mr. Kahane's residence. In
the car, they found hotel
receipts for rooms being
rented by Mr. Kahane using
Mr. Stanko's credit card, as
well as credit card state-
ments belonging to Mr.
Stanko.
On Feb. 28, Mr. Kaharie
was arrested and charged
with exploitation of the eld-
erly, first-degree grand theft
and fraudulent use of credit
cards, all felonies. He is
being held in St. Lucie
County Jail on $300,000
bond.

H5426_ADV081205c 2/23/08


Review
From page A3
line in St. Lucie County, was
put on hold last week,
developers said.
Amid a slumping real
estate market and problems
with approval for the 6,000-
acre site, the Florida Con-
servancy and Development
Group, a partnership
between Lennar Homes and
Centex Homes, asked
St. Lucie County to delay
the project in its current
form.
Before construction could
begin at the citrus grove, the
proposed community need-
ed approvals from the Flori-
da Department of Commu-
nity Affairs, as well as
permits from the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers and the
South Florida Water Man-
agement District.
"At this time, we are going
to suspend pursuit of gov-
ernmental approvals for the
town," Steve Kaufman,
executive committee mem-
ber of the Florida Conser-
vancy and Development
Group, said in a statement.
"We still believe steward-
ship is a valuable tool that
should be used to preserve
Florida's important envi-
ronmental, agricultural and
historical resources."
Florida Conservancy and
Development Group execu-
tives indicated that they
would seek another group
to take over the project.
Cloud Grove was part of
the statewide Rural Land
Stewardship Program,
which would transfer devel-
opment rights from Adams
Ranch to Cloud Grove, pre-
serving much of the 16,466-
acre ranch in western St.
Lucie County from future
development. For purchas-
in'g the development rights,
higher density construction
would be allowed in Cloud
Grove.

Crist calls
on parties to seat
Florida delegates
ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
Gov. Charlie Crist and Michi-
gan Gov. Jennifer Granholm
called on both political par-
ties to seat Florida and Michi-
gan delegates, who face an
uncertain future after both
states moved up their presi-
dential primaries.
"This primary season, vot-
ers have turned out in record
numbers to exercise that
right, and it is reprehensible
that anyone would seek to
silence the voices of
5,163,271 Americans," the
governors said in a March 6
statement. "It is intolerable
that the national political
parties have denied the citi-
zens of Michigan and Florida
their votes and voices at their
respective national conven-
tions."
After the Florida Legisla-
ture moved the state primary
to Jan. 29, the Democratic
National Committee
stripped Florida of its dele-
gates to the Denver nominat-
ing convention. Meanwhile,
the Republican National
Committee cut their party's
delegates by half.
Michigan lawmakers
moved the presidential pri-
mary to Jan. 15.
"According to the DNC and
RNC, Florida and Michigan
have violated party rules by
moving up their primaries,"
the statement continued.
"Today, we each will call
upon our respective state
and national party chairs to
resolve this matter and to
ensure that the voters of
Michigan and Florida are full
participants in the formal
selection of their parties'
nominees. We must restore
the rights of the more than 5
million voters whose voices.
have been silenced."
Another idea suggested
last week by DNC Chairman
Howard Dean would be a re-
vote for Florida Democrats.
But Supervisor of Elections


Kay Clem said the question
for Indian River County
would be who would pay for
the campaign, either the
DNC, the Florida Democratic
Party or the campaigns of Illi-
nois Sen. Barack Obama and
New York Sen. Hillary Rod-
ham Clinton.

The cast of the Mark Landon Smith comedy 'Faith County,' which is about the shenanigans behind the scenes at a
county fair, pose with some of their props. The show will be performed at the Pineapple Playhouse in Fort Pierce
from March 14-30.

'Faith County' brings fun from the fair


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
The county fair has
come to a small Southern
town and it's a time to
forget your cares.
That's the message of
the comedy "Faith
County" by Mark Landon
Smith, which runs at the
Pineapple Playhouse
from March 13-March 30.
"It's a comedy with a
Southern flair," said
director John Procino.
"It's a night of pure
entertainment with no
message. It's a way to get
away and come out and
laugh for two hours. We
deal with arts and crafts

Aries-March 21-April 19
Your life is filled with opportunities
and challenges. The starting point is to
make the best of what you have right
now. Then, locate areas that need
refinement and work on these. Move
forward a little every day. Plan ahead
so you don't have so much pressure


and love and marriage
and poetry with musical
accompaniment, and oh,
yes, hair. The audience
will leave happy and "
singing."
The play revolves
around the behind-the-
scenes goings-on at a
,county fair in a very
small Southern town,
and there's a cutthroat
arts and craft competi-
tion; a poetry reading by
the man-loving Faye;
Mildred's ceramic
depiction of the Last
Supper; the relationship
between the bee-hive-
hairdo-wearing Naomi
and her boyfriend
Luther; and the mayor's


wife, Gladys, who plays
the piano after baking a
rum cake and imbibing a
good deal of the rum.
There's even a wedding
in the second act.
The cast includes a roll
call of Pineapple and
Treasure Coast regulars
including Melissa .
Raulston as Mildred,
Camille Hooper as
Naomi, Dawn Furtado as
Faye, Jillian Yetzer as
Violet, Tamyra DiFruscio
as Ruthann, Patricia .
Holerger as Gladys, Brian
McNiff as Delbert, Colby
Dempsey as Luther and
Buzz LaChance as
Bubba.
The production is a


to perform at the last minute.
Taurus-April 20-May 20
Life has its highs and lows. Enjoy the
highs and endure the lows. Don't
give in to negative thinking. Your gut
feelings are always true if you listen
to and heed them. Taurus is a strong
sign. Strength comes from balance,
faith and trust in the higher power.
When you take positive action, posi-
tive results are sure to follow.
Gemini-May 21-June 21
Keep your cool when others around
you are losing it. No reason to get
upset now. Take things in stride as
they arise. There will always be the
earthly stuff to deal with. It's the spir-
itual that really counts. Stay in your
strong emotional and spiritual center

as well; JillianYetzer, the
youngest performer,, is a

ture. You know what you want You

strong conscience. You have much
universal wisdom and a lot of love in
your heart. You deserve the best Con-

Spice it up at Thai eatery


BY ARLENE BORG
Dining Review Crew
When Spice Thai restau-
rant finally opened in
December it confirmed
the fact that Port St. Lucie,
little by little, is becoming
the place where wonderful
restaurants can be found.
Upon entering this large
restaurant with seating for
over 60, including seats at


the beautiful copper
topped bar, I was immedi-
ately struck by its under-
stated elegance.
Colors ranging from
mocha-latte to chocolate
accented with black, and
gold and bamboo with
lotus flower hanging
lamps, gave me a warm,
peaceful feeling.
According to Patti Chon-
golnee, that's what it's all


about serenity is what
makes a Thai restaurant
unique.
Patti, her husband Paul,
and Amy Pitaktrakul and
Peter Ryvin are the owners.
Amy has owned Salathai
Thai restaurant in Jupiter,
a very popular restaurant,
for many years.

Making the perfect St. Patrick's Day meal


Hello, smart shoppers
and top o' the
morning' to ye!
St. Patrick's Day is almost
here and as we know,
everyone is Irish on St.
Paddy's Day.
Corned beef and cabbage
is the dinner of the day.
There is really no way to
make corned beef into a
low-fat meal, but you can
make it lower in fat than
usual.
Usually, every supermar-
ket has corned beef on sale,
so look for the best price.
Pick a flat cut and try to find
one as lean as possible.
Smoked pork shoulder
may be substituted for
corned beef. It is much
cheaper, but is still a high-
fat meat.
When you make this


dinner with smoked pork
shoulder it is called New
England boiled dinner. The
procedure is the same.
In my opinion, a pressure
cooker is a must-have piece
of kitchen equipment,
especially for corned beef. A
4-pound corned beef will
take about three hours to
cook in a pot and only one
hour in a pressure cooker.
My version will include
cabbage, potatoes, carrots,
onions and rutabagas. Omit
any vegetable you do not
like.
Cutting a rutabaga is no
longer difficult, thanks to a
hint from one of my readers.
Place the rutabaga in a
plastic supermarket bag,
loosely tie and place on a
microwave-safe rack.

The rutabaga, although not
cooked, is easy to peel and
cut.
To make bothth the green
and the orange happy, make
a Calamondon pie. The fruit
used is orange, but the
dessert is cream colored. A
few drops of red and yellow
food coloring will do the
trick.
Enjoy. See you next week.

J.C.'s Daily Bread

delights the palate


BY ARLENE BORG
Dining Review Crew
Tucked away in a small
strip mall just north of Vil-
lage Green Drive in Port St.
Lucie, is J.C.'s Daily Bread.
J.C.'s is a family affair and
is named after Jon-Claude
Stevens, the amazing chef
and baker; son of Ginette
and Mark.
A graduate of the Culinary
Institute of America in Hyde
Park, N.Y., Jon-Claude
trained to be a chef, but he
soon learned his passion
was baking breads, pastries,
muffins, cookies, and the
like.
Open for breakfast and
lunch, the menu selections
are unusual and extensive.
Homemade bread is served
with each selection.
You can call ahead or stop
in to pick up a loaf. Bread
choices such as butter-
,scotch, dark chocolate,
white chocolate, country,
raisin, whole wheat, multi-
grain, rye, onion, rosemary
and garlic, and by request,
raspberry/white chocolate,
walnut and Romano and

basil, left me speechless.
Their top seller is the Ital-
ian medley, made with black
olives, garlic, sun dried
tomatoes, Romano cheese,
basil, thyme and oregano.
Sandwiches are served on
baguettes, sandwich rolls,
hoagies and croissants, in
addition to the bread choic-
es. All of J.C.'s breads are fat-
free, sugar-free and preser-
vative-free.
Gourmet sandwiches
from pastrami to chicken
salad to vegetarian are
offered, along with Pannini-
grilled delights. Specialty
salads are prepared to order
along with delicious home-
made soups with selections
I haven't seen in any lunch-
eonette.
Mom and I arrived for
lunch and after tasting the
clam chowder and chicken
salad, both good, we decid-
ed on hot pastrami on rye
for Mom, and a heavenly
Pannini for me that reflected
J.C.'s culinary imagination.
Boar's Head meats are
used exclusively.
J.C.'s signature sandwich
consisted of steamed fresh
asparagus spears rolled in
thin sliced turkey breast and
grilled in savory, rosemary
and garlic bread with sweet
red onion, vine ripe tomato,
and fresh spinach leaves
topped with their own herb
dressing.
Sandwiches are available-
in regular and large size. We
-chose the regular size and
still took half home.
Several juices and bever-
ages are available. You can
join the Green Mountain
coffee club where you
receive a free cup of coffee
after the purchase of six.

Star Scopes


From page BI
Scorpio-Oct 23-Nov. 21
Working the divine plan living
in your soul continues to bring
you mastery over life. You can
have everything you want Just
make sure to put spiritual
needs first. The physical ones
don't bring you as much pleas-
ure as they used to. Love and
sharing with your family and
friends comes first
Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
You are the hunter of the zodi-
ac, more than a farmer. You
set high goals and love to be
in the chase. You thrive on
accomplishment The journey
is more important to you than
the destination. Mediocrity is
not in your vocabulary. This
divinely blessed fiery nature
makes a strong impression for
so many along the way.
Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Dare to dream and then be
bold enough to live your
dream. You have a strong
mind, an open heart and a
vivid imagination. The main


ingredient is action. Listen
closely to your inner guidance.
This is your greatest source of
strength. Turn your challenges
into steppingstones that carry
you to your highest truth.
Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Your wonderful motivation is
fueled by your warm, caring
nature. When you set it in
motion, you are capable of
performing life-changing mira-
cles. They are the result of your
determination to make others
happy. You have a blessing on
your life even if others don't
always tell you.
Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
The inner search for truth and
light is what turns you on and
guides your path. Turn away
from the stresses of the every-
day world and nurture your
own life to keep your light
strong and healthy. This
makes you capable of great
accomplishment. It makes
you move boldly ahead and
invariably emerge victorious.

dinner and were greeted by
the delightful Patti.
Between her and our
excellent server, Tana, the
food kept coming each
more delicious than the
other.
With 13 appetizers it was
difficult to choose, but
finally Patti suggested a
combination platter with
crispy rolls, crab rangoon
and shrimp.
We also had to try their
shrimp tempura, awesome
with jumbo shrimp, celery
with leaves, and other veg-
etables dipped in a light
batter and fried to perfec-
tion.
Who would have thought
that celery prepared this
way would be amazing?
The presentation fea-
tures attention to detail,
with frizzled scallions,
roses carved out of toma-
toes and carrots, making
the selection almost too
pretty to eat.
We passed on the soup,
of which there are seven
choices, knowing we could
never eat it all.
For dinner, Mom chose
jumbo shrimp pad Thai, a
combination of some of
the largest shrimp I've ever
seen, with stir-fried Thai
noodles with eggs, bean
sprouts, green onions and


ground peanuts.
I had the crispy boneless
half duck served on a bed
of mixed vegetables and
topped with my choice of
sauce.
Spice Thai has several
lunch and dinner choices
along with salads and fish
selections. Lunch specials
include soup of the day,
and a spring roll for dine-


in only.
Delivery, take-out and
catering are available.
If dessert is your choice
stop in for a glass of their
Thai iced coffee served
with cream (yum) and one
of their many desserts. Full
as we were, we just had to
share their baked Alaska
but the fried ice cream,
fried banana, white Russ-

Do You Suffer Shoulder Pain?
Specializing in Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair
Casual athletes, as well as professional athletes,.can develop painful
shoulders. Many injuries, to the rotator cuff can be caused by repeated
stress to the shoulder-such as playing golf or tennis-rather than by a
single major trauma. Today, many shoulder problems can be repaired
with arthroscopic surgery so you can go home the same day and recover
quickly. Contact my office for more information about this minimally
invasive alternative for rotator cuff repair.

Ask The Jeweler
Aquamarine,
Birthstone
of March
This month's birthstone
is Aquamarine. According
to Stuller, a large supplier
of jewelry and precious stones
to the trade, the Aquamarine
means "ocean water" with tales
of the stone dating back to
ancient times. According to the
sailors of old, they believed that
these glittering watery looking
gems came from the treasure
chests of mermaids. Maybe
that's why sailors still believe
that Aquamarine brings good
luck to all those that sail the
seas.
AquarIarine ranges from a
light pale blue that is most often
seen in commercial chain stores
and TV shopping cliannels to a
darker blue. The darker stones
which are more often hand
picked by independent jewelers
and are found on rare occa-
sions can fetch hundreds of dol-
lars per carat. The deep blue-
green aquamarines are almost
the color of blue topaz. These
colors are extremely rare.
Aquamarines of the mid-
dle hues are sought after by
those who are looking to bring
the soothing forces of nature
into their lives. Aquamarines
come from South America,
Afghanistan, India, Pakistan,
Russia, Africa, China.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
About 8,000 people from the
across the Treasure Coast
traveled to Fort Pierce to
attend the 29th annual Greek
festival.
The event, an effort of the
St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox
Church, took place on church
grounds Friday through Sun-
day, March 7-9.
"It has the atmosphere of a
village celebration, which
does happen still to this day
in Greece, where they invite
the neighbors and the com-
munity to come to enjoy their
festivities," said Tia Mekras, a
volunteer and member of St.
Nicholas Greek Orthodox
Church.
It's an opportunity for the
140 Greek families in the area
to showcase their music,
dancing and food from the
isles of Greece.
The three-day event
offered homemade foods and
featured casseroles with
spinach and feta cheese.
Sweets, such as baklava, a

Mr. Procino has been
involved in theater since
high school.
"I started in 1972 and
it's a hobby I dearly love,"
he said. "I try to do it at
least once a year. This is
my 16th show for the
Pineapple and I've had
some great scripts. It's a
great feeling to bring
together a bunch of
people who learn lines
and become a family. You
see people enjoying it and
it's a great feeling of
accomplishment."

If you live in Florida,
you've seen a Calamondon
tree with its tiny oranges. It
looks so pretty. The shock is
when you taste the fruit and
recoil at the sour taste. This
recipe, from Gayle Mamer,
will have you hunting for
someone with a Calamon-
don tree willing to share
some fruit. Trying to
squeeze the tiny fruit is a
major project, but a wooden
lemon reamer inserted into
the stem end works fine.

1 can sweetened

1 large (12-ounce)
container whipped

Preheat oven to 350

for 10 minutes so it stays

Mix all ingredients until
well combined; pour into
pie shell and freeze. Remove
from freezer 10 to 15

Mets sweep the Dodgers

So far this spring, the Mets

With the game tied at two in
the ninth inning, Gregory
Veloz singled up the middle
off Tom Martin. With Ander-
son Hernandez up, Dodgers'
catcher Luke May let one get
by him, allowing Veloz to
move to second.
On the ensuing pitch, Her-
nandez lined a single down
the first-base line, plating
Veloz with the winning run.
"I was just looking for a fast-
ball," Hernandez said. "He
threw an outside fastball and I
got it.
"I'm just trying to play the
game. It feels good."
The Dodgers actually broke
on top first. With Johan San-
tana on the mound, the
southpaw got two quick outs
.in the second inning before
catcher Gary Bennett smoked
a double just out of reach of
left fielder Brady Clark.
Jason Repko followed with a
single up the middle to score
Bennett, giving the Dodgers
the early advantage.
Santana settled down to get
Chin-lung Hu on a force at
second. The Mets quickly
responded with a run in its

However, Martin County
fell from the ranks of the
unbeaten with a 4-1 rain-
shortened loss to King's
Academy. The Tigers
dropped to 7-1.
March 5
The Bulldogs' (8-1) base-
ball team continued its win-
ning ways, no-hitting the
stumbling Port St. Lucie
Jaguars (4-5). Clayton Schulz
and Brandon Cowan com-
bined for the gem and Robert
Bednar had a two-run homer
in the 13-3 win.
In tennis, both Sebastian
River teams scored victories
over Centennial. The boys
took a 7-0 win, while the
ladies won 5-2, Both squads
are 4-2.
St. Edward's also saw both
its teams win, as the boys
remained undefeated at 5-0
with a 6-1 pasting of Edge-
wood, while the Lady Pirates
took a 4-1 rain-shortened
win to go to 4-1.


Bridges, causeways

offer best chances


r| e best part of fishing in
this area is the water
access points: Surf, river,
spillways, the list is long. Boat
or no boat, you have access to
the water.
The causeways and bridges
have been reporting a long
catch list. The causeways with
structure, shallow and deep,
are home to many species.
This past week was been
excellent, with pompano,
drum, trout, snook. Live
shrimp is on top of the bait
list. Everybody eats shrimp,
but there is a list of artificial
ones that will get your target
species; snook and the flair
hawks, trout and the soft
rubber baits, pompano and
small jigs, there are mouths
for every bait.
Drum love shrimp and they
are there all day. Snook are
biting in the dark hours.
Pompano catch the incoming
tide, and there is blue fish,
snapper, and jacks.
Good trout bites are
happening in the power plant
area, on the east side or west.
Plenty of slot fish, including
reds and snook, are taking live
shrimp and soft rubber baits.
In the St. Lucie River, both
the North and South forks
have reported trout and reds
with a mix of three-pound
pompano. It's amazing what
happens when Mother
Nature manages the water

(and leaves man out of it.
Big snook are biting at the
Roosevelt Bridge, using
chartreuse hawks.
Surf anglers are catching
blue fish casting spoons, got-
cha jigs and cut bait, really if it
moves they bite. It is that
simple. Yes, they are getting
bigger and as this month goes,
along, they will get even
bigger.
The pompano have been at
Fredrick Douglass and the
surfer beach, just south of the
House of Refuge, are bringing
in good numbers.
To get from one beach to
the other, they have to swim
past your favorite location.
Put a sand flea on a hook and
you will find them.
There haven't been many
whiting this week. Most

Mets
From page B12
up, Brad Penny uncorked a wild pitch,
allowing Martinez to move to third.
Clark eventually walked and was fol-
lowed by Raul Casanova who grounded
to first, allowing Martinez to score.
Santana then worked his best inning as
a Met. He got both Delwyn Young and
James Loney swinging before getting
Andruw Jones to ground to short.
'Anytime you see one of your big boys
go out and work, it's fun to watch," Mets'
manager Willie Randolph said of San-
tana. "You got a chance to see him use his
changeup. He threw a lot of first pitch
changeups and got ahead.
"He got a bunch of swings and misses.
You saw more of what he can do when
he's on. You can see how devastating it
can be when he's doing it right.


"It was nice to see it."
The score remained tied until the top
of the seventh inning. After Andre Ethi-
er's liner off pitcher Juan Padilla's glove
directly to Veloz for the out, May sent a
pop fly to shallow right. Martinez called
everyone off before dropping the ball for
an error.
May made it all the way to second on
the miscue and scored when pinch hitter
George Lombard stroked a single to left.
Down to its final six outs, the Mets ral-
lied for a run in the eighth. Hernandez
continued his hot hitting, lining a double
down the first base line. Dan Murphy
grounded to first, allowing Hernandez to
move to third. Center fielder Ezequiel
Carrera fought back from a two-strike
hole to single to right, sending Hernan-
dez home with the tying run.
Besides the theatrics at the plate, Ran-
dolph was impressed with the work of
his bullpen. Steven Register followed


Santana with two solid innings with
Scott Schoeneweis, Nate Field and Joe
Smith each contributing an inning of
their own.
"We've got some arms," Randolph
said. "They've got the stuff.
"Register has a good sinker and slider.
Joe Smith threw the ball well today."
Torre was also pleased with the work
of his staff, especially Penny and reliever
Mike Myers.
"I thought he (Penny) was good," Torre
said. "I thought he forced it a little bit at
the beginning, but then he got into a lit-
tle bit of a rhythm.
"It was a good outing.
"Myers' command was real good. Last
year, he had trouble locating (his pitch-
es). This spring, he's pretty much doing
what he wants to do."
The Mets improved to 5-3 on the
spring season the club's fifth-straight
win. The Dodgers dropped to 2-5-1.


Fishing
From page B13


anglers were targeting other
species, and who would want
to hang around a school of
blue fish, anyway?
Offshore is still scattered.
Anglers reported catches, but


had to work for them. Live
baits are a hard find and so
are the fish. Look for the color
lines, and watch for the
temperature changes, you
have to find a reason to hold

the fish.
Yes, sails, dolphin, kings
and cobia all made the catch
list. The zone is that 90 to 125
feet, but you have to pay
attention and have that pitch
rod ready. There's always a
second fish. Skirted bally-hoo


have topped the bait list.

to have a coffee and read the
