County facing the loss of 37 deputy sheriffs


Earlier projection
was as many
as 114 deputies
BY SAMANTHA JOSEPH
Staff writer
ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
Despite published
reports, it's highly unlikely
that St. Lucie County will
lose more than 100
deputies in the wake of
the budget shortfall, Sher-
iff Ken Mascara said.
But it could layoff 37
deputies if county com-
missioners stick to their
plan to offer no increase

BY RITA HART

ST. LUCIE COUNTY
- The green ideas were
flowing on March 17,'
and they had nothing to
do with St. Patrick's
Day.
The St. Lucie County
Sustainable Advisory
Committee held its
monthly public meet-
ing last week. Present
were two architectural
consulting firms with
expertise in building
"green" schools that
incorporate concepts
designed to improve
natural lighting,
acoustics and indoor
air quality while cutting
back operational costs.

board is made up of city
and county officials,

sentatives, develop-
ment and conservation

office's current $63.6 mil-
lion annual budget.
County commissioners
are considering holding
back on additional funds
for the sheriff's office as
one way of making up the
expected $51 million dip
in revenue from property
taxes over the next two
years.
But representatives of
the law enforcement
group said that without
additional funds, the
department stands to lose
patrol, traffic, aviation
and court security offi-
cers. Longer waits for resi-
dents who call 911, fewer
criminal investigators and


the removal of deputies
from schools top the list of
possible consequences,
they said.
The idea of far-reaching
layoffs emerged in the
sheriff's 2008 strategic
plan that anticipated the
zero-increase budget for
the office of more than
650 deputies and civilian
s t a f f
But published reports
seized on one scenario out
of four possibilities that
the sheriff presented to
commissioners to explain
the possible conse-
quences of a stagnant
budget for next year, Mr.
Mascara said.


"Layoffs are probable, (but) my staff and I are
working every day looking at options to pre-
vent the layoffs from occurring"

Ken Mascara
Sheriff, St. Lucie County


That scenario involved
laying off 114 deputies,
but only if the department
awarded 10 percent pay
raises to staff.
The deputies' bargain-
ing group, the Police
Benevolent Association,
was rumored to be prepar-
ing to ask for a 10 percent
raise for officers, Mr. Mas-
cara said.
Such raises would create

a shortfall of more than

turbines

BY RITA HART
Staff writer
ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
Just hours before a majori-
ty of St. Lucie County
Commissioners met to
discuss a letter of opposi-
tion to building wind tur-
bines on state-owned land
at South Hutchinson
Island's Blind Creek Park,
Florida Power and Light
withdrew their construc-
tion request.
On March 18, FPL for-
warded a letter to the
Florida Acquisition and
Restoration Council, with-
drawing its request to
build three turbines on the
land that is jointly owned
by Florida's Department of
Environmental Protection
and the South Florida
Water Management Dis-
trict. A meeting between
FPL and ARC had been
scheduled for April 10-11
in Tallahassee to .request
the easement necessary
for the construction.

County Commissioners
was aware of this with-
drawal by the time they

Blood drive honors

slain co-workers


BY RITA HART
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE The
shock waves from a horrif-
ic crime in Lake Wales
stunned the country and
stirred some Port St. Lucie
colleagues into action.
The result was a blood
drive sponsored by Post
Insurance & Financial on
March 19 in memory of
two women who died in
the shocking attack.
On Dec. 13, a man intent
on robbing one of three
Headley Nationwide
Insurance offices in Polk
County set fire to two of its
employees, Yvonne Busta-
mante, 26, and Jane
Luciano, 23. Mrs. Busta-


mante died five days later.
Ms. Luciano was five and-
a-half months pregnant at
the time and her baby was
delivered by Cesarean sec-
tion immediately after.the
crime. The baby boy died
three days later, and Ms.
Luciano died from her
injuries three weeks later.
Leon Davis Jr., 30, has
been charged with multi-
ple crimes in the attack,
including three counts of
first-degree murder. He
also faces additional
murder charges for
allegedly killing two BP
station employees that
same month in a separate
incident. -

OA

FACIAL PAIN
Q 4 \3hat can cause facial pain?
A, Cihrmnic facial pain is an affliction that bothers some 15 percent of American adults. It can
range (ron moderate pain and clicking or popping noises when opening the mouth or trying
tv speak to more intense pain in and around the ear and in the jaw. The pain can radiate into
a general ache in the head and/or the neck.
An infection in the sinus, tooth or gums is sometimes the cause of facial pain. Even the early '
stages of periodontal, or gum, disease, can result in pain. The pain also may emanate from a i' .
muscle problem, the jaw or from the temperomandibular joint, which is where the upper and
lower jaws meet in front of the ear. Your dentist will most likely be able to diagnose the problem through a
thorough exam that might include x-rays.
Depending on the diagnosis, treatment could include something as simple as stress reducing exercises or taking
muscle-relaxing medication. Some cases have been resolved by wearing a mouth guard at night to prevent teeth
grinding. Your dentist is the best source of answers for your questions about facial pain and wats to treat it.

Fishing tournament


for local children's


agencies seeking donations


BY RITA HART
Staff writer


ST. LUCIE COUNTY It
is touted as the fishing
tournament where a cat-
fish counts as much as a
kingfish, and it's coming
soon to St. Lucie County.
The Trash Can Grand
Slam Kids Fishing Tourna-
ment, sponsored by local
businesses, St. Lucie Coun-
ty and the University of
Florida Extension Service
is open to children ages 9,
to 15 who are involved with
Big Brothers Big Sisters of
St. Lucie County or the
Boys & Girls Club of St.
Lucie County. To be held
on March 31, the event is


broken down into two half-
day trips. The first group
will go out on a boat from
7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and
the second group is sched-
uled for 1:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Lunch is served for all par-
ticipants between those
sessions.
One of the purposes of
the tournament is to teach
children:
*The critical environ-
mental issues involving the
Indian River Lagoon
*The biological diversity
and importance of the
Indian River Lagoon
*The conservation of
coastal habitats and
marine fisheries
*Ethical fishing skills


Turbines
From page Al
(sion Chambers, the group
still'met on the issue of the
content of a letter they
planned on sending to
ARC.
Commissioners Chris
Craft, Doug Coward and
Paula Lewis have
expressed opposition to
the construction of the tur-
bines in Blind Creek Park,
while Commissioner
Charles Grande has not
given a public opinion on
the subject. Commission
Chairman Joe. Smith is
withholding the
announcement of his posi-
tion on the wind turbine
projects until a formal vote
is taken of the board.
The events of March 18
do not end the .controver-
sial issue.
FPL notified St. Lucie
County's Growth Manage-
ment Department in writ-
irig their plans to proceed
with the construction of six
turbines on property
owned by FPL near the St.
Lucie Nuclear Power Plant.
Approval of those turbines
was not on the commis-
sioners' agenda on March
18, and FPL may still face
*an uphill battle, as zoning
permits and height. vari-
ances must be granted
before those turbines can
be built.
The controversy over
wind turbines is not
unique to the. Treasure
Coast. An article in Parade
magazine on March 2
states that a group called


The tournament, in its
second year, provides bait,
boat rental, rod, reel and
tackle for every participant
and is free of charge. This
is made possible though
the generosity of the busi-
ness community, and
organizers are' seeking
donations again 'this year
to make the event a suc-
cess, including prizes for
the children.
Anyone wishing to donate
to or help sponsor the Trash
Can Grand Slam Kids Fish-
ing Tournament is asked to
contact Jeffrey (IP) Geller-
mann,. growth manage-
ment agent for the Univer-
sity of Florida Extension
Office, at'(772) 462-1660.


Cape Wind Associates is
seeking to build 130, 400-
foot-high turbines 5 miles
south of Cape Cod, in shal-
low waters. The turbines
would provide "most of the
area's electricity."
However, seven years
after the association first
proposed the idea, the
wind turbines are still ofi
hold, and "wealthy oppo-
nents have spent roughly
$20 million trying to stop
the project, while the ener-
gy developer has spent
more than $30 million try-
ing to move it forward."
The article cites similar
controversies "on Long
Island, N.Y., in Virginia, the
Appalachians, Illinois, Ver-
mont and even California

Amy Brunjes, spokesper-
son for FPL, said there are
no plans for FPL to place
the three turbines origi-
nally intended for the
Blind Creek Park else!
where. With respect to
county approval for the-
remaining six turbines,
Ms. Brunjes said, "What
we heard consistently
from residents and com-
missioners is that they
share a commitment to
renewable energy, but they
didn't want to use public
lands. That obstacle ha.
now been removed and
FPL continues to share
Gov. Charlie Crist's comr
mitment to pursue alterS:
native renewable energy
sources," said Ms. Brunjes.-

Community rallies to help boy's battle


Fundraisers on
tap to help
Zachary Russell
and his family
pay for surgery
BY RITA HART
Staff writer
* PORT ST. LUCIE In
many ways, Zachary Russell
is a typical 12-year-old.
Energetic and athletic, with
a smile that can melt hearts,
the sixth-grader is described
by those who know him as a
"good kid."
But Zach isn't typical.
He has spent his life bat-
fling cystic fibrosis, a chron-
ic disease that affects the
lungs and digestive system.
Zach was recently placed on
a waiting list to receive a
double lung transplant at
Jackson Memorial Hospital
in Miami, and the commu-
nity is rallying around him
and his family to help pay
the high costs for the proce-
dure and his on-going care.
The total, cost of the lung
transplant alone is expected


to be approximately
$600,000, only a portion of
which his insurance will
cover.
Zachary's close-knit fami-
ly is one of the reasons for
this outpouring of help, as
his parents have spent their
careers working for the safe-
ty and welfare of the com-
munity.
Zach's father, Terry Rus-
sell, is an officer with the
Port St. Lucie Police Depart-
ment. His mother, Karen, is
a certified public account-
ant who works for St. Lucie
County.
Officer Russell's col-
leagues at the police depart-
ment have begun organizing
multiple fundraisers to help
with Zach's medical expens-
es.
"Terry would never ask for
anything himself, and we've
tried to sneak this behind
his back," said police detec-
tive Scott Johnson.
But it appears it's too late
for that.
"People have come out of
the woodwork for this," said
Detective Johnson. "I swear
to God the man knows

Florida. He's a friend to
everyone. It crushed him to
ask if someone would be a
benefactor for a foundation
(for Zach) because he didn't
want to be involved with the
financial part of this."
On March 14, the Jimmy
John's Gourmet Sandwich
shop on Port St. Lucie
Boulevard agreed to donate
a portion of that day's profits
for Zachary. The line of
police officers, city employ-
ees and citizens waiting to
order lunch stretched out
the door and down the side-
walk of the shop's plaza.
"It's heartwarming to see
this," said Police Chief John
Skinner as he waited in line.
"All of us realize we are just
steps away from poor
health. And all of these guys
are coming out for someone
who writes tickets," he said


with a laugh.

Botanical Gardens fundraiser held
The Friends of the Port St. Lucie Botanical Gardens
held a cocktail party fundraiser at Tradition Town Hall on
March 21.
The event included music by students of Lincoln Park
Academy and a presentation about the garden site,
which will be located on 10-acres of land owned by the
city. The property is situated between Westmoreland
Boulevard and the St. Lucie River, just south of Port St.
Lucie Boulevard.
Plans for the Botanical Gardens are being spearhead-
ed by City Councilman Christopher Cooper, who is
encouraging city residents to join Friends of the Port St.
Lucie Botanical Gardens group. Councilman Cooper
hopes the gardens will become a major tourist attraction
within the city, and has consistently encouraged citizens
to offer their suggestions for the gardens in the planning
stages.
Anyone interested in contacting Councilman Cooper
in this regard may do so by e-mail at pslbotanical-
gard@aol.com or call Mr. Cooper at (772) 871-5159.

Local students open hearts
for foster children .
United for Families of Port St. Lucie has deemed their
2008 "Have a Heart, Do Your Part Toiletry Drive" a suc-
cess, thanks to students in St. Lucie County schools.
County school children and volunteers from the Lakes
of Tradition collected enough shampoo, soap and tooth-
paste for 350 local foster children in this year's drive, the
agency's sixth. The drive is held in February each year.
United for Families is a noh-profit agency located at
10570 S. Federal Highway in Port St. Lucie. The agency's
goal is to support children and families served by the wel-
fare system in St. Lucie, Martin, Okeechobee and Indian
River counties, and to stop the cycle of child abuse.

St. Lucie West tree removal
to improve visibility
Port St. Lucie Pubic Works crews are busy removing
trees in the medians of St. Lucie West Boulevard, between
Peacock and Cashmere Boulevards.
The removal of the trees, 22 in all, is expected to bring
the busy road into compliance with traffic safety stan-
dards set by the Florida Department of Transportation.
Those standards dictate where trees can be placed in rela-
tion to intersections.
The city of Port St. Lucie acquired the road from St.
Lucie West Services District in 2007. Since then, city engi-
neers have planned improvements in the road visibility.
The removal of the trees will not mean the end of an
attractive landscape on the boulevard. The trees will be
replaced with shrubs and mulch. In addition, damaged
shrubs are being removed with the trees.

A response about meter readers

In response to the "rant" in the March 14 issue titled
'getting paid for nothing,' the, only time two meter readers
ride together is when a newly hired employee is being
trained.

Perfect day at the ballpark

On March 1,1 I went to a spring training game at Mets sta-
dium in Port St. Lucie. On that day, I was privileged to have
been present at the perfect game on one of God's perfect
days.
Almost 6,600 people were present to witness one of the
most beautiful spring days I have ever sedn. The weather
was sunny to partly cloudy and the temperature was
around 72 degrees. There was this wonderful and cool trop-
ical breeze that blew around the aroma of hot dogs cooking
on the grill. All the sites and sounds of a Major League base-
ball game were there also.
Kids were huddled around the dugouts trying to get
glimpses and autographs of their favorite ball players. Pho-
tographers where taking snapshots of the managers and
star players. Excitement and anticipation was everywhere.
The crowd scurried as they looked for their seats in antic-
ipation of the spectacle that was, about to begin. After all,
spring training or not, this was a major league baseball
game between the NewYork Mets and the L.A. Dodgers.
It has been said that baseball is the perfect game. Abner
Doubleday is credited with inventing a'game that requires
tremendous skills, like catching and hitting a horse hide
covered ball that can be thrown and hit at speeds in excess
of 100 miles and hour.
Baseball is known as the national pastime, the all-Ameri-
can game. Be assured, on this perfect day the Dodgers and
the Mets played a perfect game of no less than a dozen
spectacular plays. The game was awesome.
However, the best part was being able to share this won-
derful day with friends and relatives and being together and
appreciating each others company.
-When it was time to start the game, this little eleven or
twelve-year-old girl stood up to sing the national anthem. I
don't remember her name, but there she stood at home
plate all alone.
The announcer told the crowd to remove their ball caps
and face the flag in right field.. The music of the national
anthem began and I swear the voice-of an angel came from
this tiny little girl. She sang this difficult song in perfect
pitch, and it was so beautiful.
The crowd was silent and the only sound you could hear
was this angel singing her heart out. When she got to the
last verse and that tremendous high C note, "or the land of
the free", she hit it flawlessly.
Suddenly, before she could sing "and the home of the
brave" the crowd spontaneously erupted into cheering that
lead into a standing ovation.
At that moment, all 6,600 of us knew, we were sharing a
perfect day and the perfect game.

The child support system needs to change

I have custody of my grandson. My daughter, the child's
mother, is incarcerated. The father who has never met the
child, his choice, does pay child support..I have been raising
this child for the past six years. The child support amount I
receive weekly is $64.
Back in July 2007, I requested a motion to raise the
amount. After all the cost of a ten-year old is not even close
to $64 a week, especially with medical insurance, co-pay-
ments and prescriptions, etc. I wasn't trying to bleed him
dry. I don't contact him for any reason nor do I try to make
him understand that he is the child's father and has more
than a financial obligation to him.
It wasn't my choice to bring this child into the world,
however, what am I to do?
I do the best I can, but my issue is this: I filed my applica-
tion with the Department of Revenue Child Support
Enforcement in July 2007.
I received a phone call from a caseworker out of the Fort
Pierce office in Decemb.er. I was told that I have been grant-
ed a larger amount of child support based on the paper-
work received from the child's father and myself, but I
should not settle, I should take it to court. I took their
advice. They are the professionals; they know how this
works.
I finally received a court date for February 2008. I went to
court, waited my turn, and got called in with the father of
the child.
Apparently, the father is now unemployed. The hearing
' officer, along with the attorney for the Department of Rev-
enue for Child Support asked him if he was working, why he


wasn't, and that was it. The officer then stated the modifica-
tion for increase is denied due to the unemployment of the
father.
This lasted all of three minutes; I am not exaggerating. I
then asked if I could say something and was looked at like I
have a third eye. There was no one there from the local Fort
Pierce office for me to speak to. They had someone there
from Child Support Enforcement, but they were not local.
When I asked questions, I was told to leave the courtroom
and someone would speak with me.
I was livid.
I waited seven months to have this court date and it last-
ed three minutes. My voice wasn't even considered. They
claim to be advocates for the child. I saw no advocate; the
whole process is like going to a fast food restaurant. They
try to get you out of the courtroom as fast as possible. I was
appalled. The only option I have according the child sup;-
port representative is to file another request if I find out the
father is working. I work Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Who has time for this? Not me. It cost me money to go to
court. I had to take time off of work. The child's father is
married and has two other children, one older then my
grandson and one younger.
He was never asked how he supports his family, or pays
his cell phone bill. I mean, I couldn't afford a cell phone if I
was unemployed, could you? The whole process is a farce. I
am not the first person to experience this and won't be the
last.

Give property owners a break

Just when things in beautiful Florida start to look rosy
again, state, county or local government gives me yet
another reason to pack up and head for the hills.
As any local landlord knows, trying to own and pay for
rental property in Florida is like trying to shovel sand
against the tide. County tax collectors were quick to take
advantage of the run-up in property values, with the owners
of non-homestead and rental properties (myself included)
seeing outrageous increases in tax bills.
As such, I find myself working my tail off, keeping up my
rental property, for the sole benefit of the county tax collec-
tor, who takes every nickel I earn, and then some, in the
form of property tax.
Would any of the readers be upset if they worked all week
.long and then were forced to hand over their entire pay-
check to the government?
I am one of the responsible ones. I go to my property
every week, pick up trash, and maintain the grounds. I do
my own repairs. I do all these things myself because my tax
bill does not permit me to hire help. My property was dev-
astated after the hurricanes and I took out a second mort-
gage to rebuild and improve the appearance of my property
when I probably just should have walked away. In return
for my efforts of beautifying my property, the county nearly
quadrupled my tax bill.
What do you suppose would happen if I notified my ten-
ants of a four-fold increase in their rent?
Where is the incentive to keep up these properties?
I am sick to death of hearing about how the county is
going broke because the recent slide in home values has
caused a drop in revenue.
The amount of money that this county has wasted in the
past few years is appalling.
So when I get slapped with a code violation which basi-
cally says my house,isn't pretty enough for the city, and
needs to be painted, I take it personally.
Give me a break, literally. Support new legislation to
lower property tax for landlords who are struggling to prop-
erly maintain their rentals.
Ammendment 1 does not go far enough. Let responsible
landlords have the money they need to work with and the
quality and appearance of rental properties will improve.
But then my house will be worth more and my property tax
will be raised. As far as where to make budget cuts, I have a


suggestion on where to start.

Winter residents should be more courteous

Please tell your readers who are here for the winter
that even though we are in the service business it does
not mean that we are subservient. I have people come
into my place of business with the most horrible obnox-
ious attitude.
They think they have the right to insult you, demoral-
ize you and expect you to be quiet and take it because
they happen to have a second home in Florida. Perhaps
what they do not know is that we probably could buy
and sell them hundred times over and it is our job to be
friendly and greet them because that is what good
business is all about, but we do not have to be subjected
to their snobbery, their insults and their lectures if we
tell them something they do not want to hear.
Recently, I had a woman come into my place of
business demanding that I supply her with one yard of
fabric. She had purchased a chair in a consignment
shop and was told that this chair was originally pur-
chased from us five years ago.
The color way was obviously from the eighties; mauve
and gray. When I told her that that fabric combination
has been out of date for many years, she became
beligerent, obnoxious and demanded that I check my
library of approximately 5,000 fabrics.
The attitude that this woman displayed would not
make me look for anything even if the fabric cost a
million dollars.
If these people want good service, they should try
being very courteous to the sales person. Good manners
go a long way.



Letters

We need to protect the animals
Dear Editor,
The fire at the Animal Sanctuary and Clinic in Jupiter at
3:30 a.m., on Marchl4, killed 14 cats and put many dogs
in danger.
Hundreds of pets are caged and left alone at night. Pets
in local shelters and sanctuaries are left to die unattend-
ed in fires that occur mainly at night. It reveals what is all
too obvious, that shelters aren't providing a human
caretaker for the animals at night.
Why aren't shelters required to have sprinklers and a
caretaker on duty at night to provide protection for the
animals for whom they are entrusted?
I A caring shelter must also employ a veterinarian
assistant to be on duty at all times to care of the many
suffering and sick animals. If a shelter is responsible and
worthy of its name, it should have fire prevention
foremost, with sprinklers installed, and an alert atten-
dant on duty overnight.
With these humane standards, an animal-holding
facility could then truly be designated as a safe animal
shelter.
Doesn't the local fire department inspect shelters and
see that fire prevention standards are practiced?
If animal-caring people give a donation to a shelter to
rebuild after a fire, why not label the donation specifical-
ly for 1) a night time attendant, and 2) fire sprinklers.
When money is donated to a shelter for these two
specific fire- prevention purposes, the animals will
finally be safe from suffering and dying in a raging
shelter fire.

Kathie Schmidt, director of career and education, St. Lucie County Schools. In the back

School district names TCBA


Business Partner of the Year


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

The Schopl Board of St,
Lucie County .recently
named the Treasure Coast
Builders Association one of
the two district Business
Partners of the Year for
2007/2008.
The business has been an
active partner in the Port St.
Lucie High School's Con-
struction Trades Academy
in the construction of a
home by students.
The trade association's
members also served as
mentors and judges for the
Region SkillsUSA competi-
tions in carpentry, electri-
cal wiring and technical
drafting. Last year, TCBA
also created a chapter of
the Future Builders of
America at Port St. Lucie
School.


"TCBA is very humbled to
receive this prestigious
award. We're proud of all
our member contributions
to the students at Port St.
Lucie High School. These
students are our future
leaders and workforce. Our
commitment to build a bet-
ter tomorrow will continue
with their help," stated
TCBA President Randy
Berry.
TCBA has been a strong
supporter of Port St. Lucie
High School's Building
Construction Trades Acade-
my. since its inception.
Association members
donated .their experience
and industry knowledge to
'help guide students as they
constructed the first house
on campus. Once complet-
ed, a sealed bid process for
the sale of the home took
. place and proceeds from


the sale are now funding
the construction of a sec-
ond home.
The building association
also created a chapter of
Future Builders of America
at the high school.
TCBA was honored in
February with a public pres-
entation by the School
Board of St. Lucie County
and at a luncheon spon-
sored by the Corporation for
National Service and the St.
Lucie School Board honor-
ing school volunteers and
business partners of the
year.
In April, TCBA will be
honored at the Florida Asso-
ciation of Partners in Educa-
tion Conference in Jack-

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee"."


Fellow Florida Car Dealers, if you don't
know me, I should tell you that I don't profess
to be some "holier than thou" car dealer who
was always perfect for the past 38 years.
When I look at some of my past advertising
and sales tactics, I am not always proud.
But. have evolved as-my customers have
evolved. My customers' expectations, level
of education and sophistication are much
higher today. Your customers are no different.
My remarks are made sincerely and with a
positive intent toward you and your custom-
ers. I am not trying to tell you '- .' : '
how to run your business. I "Al'y CM
am suggesting a change that .
will reward both you and your expectat
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 higi
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
lee is simply to increase the price of the car
and your proflil in such a manner that it is not
noticed by your customers. This is lUSl plain
wrong I used to charge a dealer lee ($495i
and when I stopped charging it a lew years
ago it was scary But I did it because I could
no longer. in good conscience, mislead nmy
cuslorners Just because everybody else
was doing the same thing did not make it
correct

Now, here is the good news. After eliminat-
ing the dealer fee my profit per car did drop
by about the amount of the dealer fee, but
my customers realized I was now giving them
a fair shake and quoting a complete out-the-
door price with no "surprises". And the word
spread. My volume of car sales began to rise
rapidly. Sure, I was making a few hundred
dollars less per car, but I was selling a lot
more cars. I was and am selling cars to many
of your former customers. My bottom line
has improved, not because I eliminated the
dealer fee, but because I was
stotners' able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
ions, level or used car. You can do the
same.
ltion and Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to 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
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 iI or nol have the courage to follow my
lead. But maybe you will be the exception If
yc'u have any interest in following my lead,
call me anytime I don't have a secretary and
I don't screen any of my phone calls I would
love to chat with you about this
Sincerely.

New Permanent Teeth......


A Life Changing Experience

Modem advances in dental tech- Best of all, you'll be able to smile
nology and surgical techniques mean more naturally and be comfortable in
that now, more and more people who normal activities such as talking,
have lost their natural teeth can live laughing, smiling and eating.


fuller, richer, and happier lives. They
allow the person to ,go to favorite
restaurants and order what they want
to eat, instead of what they can eat
Dental implants can restore a person's
ability to eat, smile, kiss and talk with
confidence and comfort.

A dental implant is a substi-
tute tooth root that provides a
stable foundation for replace-
ment teeth. The implant is
anchored into the jawbone
through a process where the
bone and the implant become
integrated, providing the same
stability as natural teeth. This
means that replacement teeth
can look, feel, and function just
like real teeth!

Since dental implants, like teeth, are
embedded in the jaw, the painful
chewing associated with removable
teeth is eliminated. Unlike traditional
dentures, implants support dentures
so that there is little pressure on the
gums.

While dental implants have been
available for many years, new
advances make them available to
more people. New techniques can
provide support for implants where
the implant could not have been
placed before.

Additionally dental implants can
be used to solve a variety of dental
problems. For example, implants can
be used to replace a single missing
tooth instead of making a traditional
bridge. They can be placed to support
an entire bridge where the natural
teeth are missing, or they can be used
to give the patient a better fitting den-
ture so they can eliminate the prob-
lems traditionally associated with den-
tures.


Explore dental implants as a solu-
tion to your personal dental problems.
Call Dr. Rankin today to schedule your
FREE personal consultation and
examination. Dental implants can
help you smile and eat with confi-
dence again!

BUSINESS


Reaching savings goals takes


creativity, commitment


Sere's an astounding
fact: Last year
American families
spent more than they made.
That's right. According to
the federal Bureau of
Economic Analysis, our
savings rate (the difference
between after tax income
and how much we actually
spend) has been falling
steadily for years. In 2007, it
reached a new low of
negative 1.5 percent.
Families make up the
difference by drawing on
their assets (things like the
equity in their home,
investments, and cash
savings); however, declining
real estate values and
increased costs for essen-
tials like fuel and food have
more households feeling
the pinch.
How can you get back on
top of the savings chal-
lenge?
Make a commitment -
Even with gas, food, and.
housing prices going up. you
can squeeze some money
out of your paycheck into
your savings. However,
reversing the spending
trend takes commitment.
Make a contract with
yourself to save a set
amount every month and
refuse to tap into your
savings for any other
purpose.
Be consistent The basis
of any savings plan is a solid
budget. Sit down with your
pay stubs, bills, and state-
ments and figure out exactly


what you have coming in -
and what you have going
out. Now divide the spend-
ing into two lists: things you
need and things you want.
Anything you aren't spend-
ing on necessities is money
you could be saving. Decide
how much of that money
you want to save and stick
to that goal every month.
Get creative.- Just as there
are new demands on family
budgets, there are also new
resources for saving:
Employer Matching
Programs like IRAs and
health care savings
accounts use pretax dollars
so you pay less income tax.
Because they are deducted
right from your paycheck
you're less likely to feel the
pinch of saving, and since
many employers match
your contribution they're a
great way to increase your
saving power too.
Automatic Savings Plans
take the guesswork out of
saving. Transfer a set
amount to your savings
every month, or schedule
an automatic deduction
online for any amount and
frequency you choose.
Direct deposit is another
way to automate your
savings. Deposit your
paycheck in an interest-
bearing account and use
electronic transfer to put
just enough in your check-
ing account to pay your
bills.
Reward programs from
your credit card company
turn spending into saving.


TIM BUSBY
Riverside National Bank
Look for plans that offer
cash back and have the
bonus deposited in your
savings.
High yield savings
accounts maximize savings.
Look for one online or ask
your bank for their best rate.
Round up to savings with
a debit card plan that
rounds up your debit card
purchases to the nearest
dollar and puts the differ-
ence in your savings. They
make savings painless and
easy. Some banks also
match your savings up to a
preset level.
With these simple saving
plans, you can make saving
a household habit and start
seeing your pennies add up
in no time.

president at Riverside Bank.

Fibromyalgia: A condition when


pam, exhaustion don't go away


Tou're always tired, and
everything always
hurts. Doctors can't
find anything wrong, and
family and friends don't
want to hear about it
anymore.
You may have fibromyal-
gia, and doctors have come
to understand that this is a
real, chronic condition,
affecting more women than
men. With that understand-
ing have come treatments
that can make you more
comfortable and better able
to cope with the pain and
exhaustion you may feel.
For many patients, having a
name for the symptoms you
feel and knowing it's not "all
in your head" helps right
away, but there are things
you should know about the
disorder to make things
easier going forward.


MayoClinic.com lists the
following symptoms, that
may vary at different times,
as indicators that fibromyal-
gia may be the problem:
*Wide-spread pain in
specific areas, including the
back of the head, upper
back and neck, upper chest,
hips and knees. Applying
pressure to these points
makes the pain worse and
there may be stiffness.
Despite plenty of sleep,
you may be tired all the
time. There may also be
nighttime muscle spasms
and restless leg syndrome
present.
Irritable bowel syn-
drome or IBS, with consti-
pation, diarrhea or bloating
is common with fibromyal-
gia.
Headaches and facial
pain, stiffness in the neck


and shoulders, and temper-
omandibular joint disorder,
or TMJ, affecting the jaw.
People with fibromyal-
gia are often especially
sensitive to odors, bright
light, noises and touch.
People with fibromyal-
gia often report feeling
depressed, having difficulty
concentrating, being
anxious and having painful
menstrual periods.
There are many theories
as to what causes fibromyal-
gia, and recent thought says
that people with the
disorder may have a lower
threshold for pain because
of increased sensitivity in
the brain to pain signals.
The brain's pain receptors
seem to remember past
pain and become more
sensitive to it, so that the
body overreacts to pain
:signals and something that
wouldn't hurt someone else
hurts you.

Who's at risk for
fibromyalgia?

*Women are more likely
to suffer from it than men.
It tends to develop in
early and middle adulthood
but can occur in children
and teens and affect their
schoolwork and social
relationships.
People with sleep
disorders often have
fibromyalgia, but it's not
clear what came first.
If you have a family
member with the condition,
you are more likely to
develop it.
People with rheumatic
diseases, including rheuma-
toid arthritis, lupus or
ankylosing spondylitis are
more likely to have
fibromyalgia, as well.

How can you tell
if you have it?

People with fibromyalgia
have often been to numer-
ous doctors and had many
tests, all showing nothing.
There isn't a blood test or


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well

scan to confirm fibromyal-
gia. The American College of
Rheumatology, whose
practitioners often treat
people with fibromyalgia,
has set up guidelines, but
they are only guidelines,
which include widespread
pain for at least three
months and a minimum of
11 spots on the body that are
abnormally sensitive to pain.
Doctors don't all agree
about these guidelines, but if
you have the symptoms
discussed, talk to your family
doctor about a referral to
someone who specializes in
treating this disorder.

How serious is it?

Fibromyalgia causes pain,
exhaustion and loss of sleep,
and these may have an
impact on your ability to
function and work. Sufferers
often feel depressed. While it
won't get worse, won't lead to
other conditions and isn't life-
threatening, it can seriously
affect the quality oflife, and
therefore researchers and
doctors have sought treat-
ments that alleviate the
symptoms and make it easier
to live a normal life.
Next week, I'll discuss
medications and self-care to.
make living with fibromyalgia
easier.

P y g* m ont l*y *bill Gift certificates available.
Paying monthly bills is WIE


easy to do on the Internet ....r 'w an
XTI


The monthly bill
paying ritual seems to
never end, but it has
become easier with the
Internet and online bill
paying services that most
utilities have added to their
systems.
Here's the way life used to
work every month: the bills
would come in (as they still
do), and then I'd go
through each one with the
checkbook and a book of
stamps.
I'd write a check, write it
in the check book, put it in
the envelope with that
month's payment stub,
write my return address on
the outside of the envelope,
stick a stamp on it and drop
it in the mail.
Every month, like
clockwork, it was a chore
that consumed a bunch of
stamps, checks, time and
usually resulted in a little
writers cramp.
How are things now?
Well, the bills still come
in every month like clock-
work, but the hassle of
writing checks and drop-
ping them in the mail is
almost a thing of the past.
Sure, the chore of sitting
down and "paying the bills"
is still there, but with my
trusty computer and my
Internet connection, I can
get the job knocked out in
half the time that it used to
take, and I can get a book of
stamps to last months now.
So what's involved?
Well, it helps to have a
credit card (or a "check
card" with the Visa logo,
that most banks are happy
to provide), a computer
and an Internet connec-
tion. It also helps to know
the Web addresses of the
companies that you wish to
pay online, but the nice
thing about that is they
usually print the Web
address somewhere on
your monthly statement.
Then, with your bill in
hand, connect to the
Internet and navigate to
the company Web site and
follow the onscreen
instructions.
Hint: You will usually find


SEAN MCCARTHY,
Compute This

a link that says, "pay
online." Follow that link,
and you are on your way.
Now, here's the catch.
Each Web site is set up
differently than the others,
so you have to think about
what you are trying to do
on each site and follow
their particular set of links.
Some sites may have you
sign up first to create an
account on theirWeb site
- but you only have to do
this once. The next month,
when you log in with your
username and password,
your information should
appear.
Not comfortable using a
credit card online?
In lieu of a credit card,
many sites will allow for
electronic fund transfers by
asking for your bank
account and routing
numbers (is that really
safer?), or you may even
have luck checking to see if
your bank's online system
allows forWeb-based bill
pay to the companies you
pay each month. Most
online banking systems
these days provide it, and if
they don't, you can also
check PayPal. They've been
offering a bill pay service
for awhile, and you may be
surprised at who you can
pay with this.
Let's go back to paying
the bills individually at the
Web sites provided by the
companies. Let's see, you
can navigate to
www.fpl.com to pay your
electric bill (look for the
"pay my bill" link, then
"FPL pay online"). You have


to set up your account first,
but then every month, with
bill-in-hand, log on and
make a payment.
The city of Port St. Lucie
has a similar setup for your
utility bills. Just take a look at
your next bill and find aWeb
address.
Now that's just a couple of
the companies that we pay
each month, and I'm glad I
took the time to learn each
system. Now when my
monthly bills come in, I log
on to the Internet, spend
about three minutes at each
Web site, log the payments in
my checkbook register, and
I'm. done without half the
aggravation caused by doing
it the old-fashioned way.
Now, if only I could find a
way to use my computer to
eliminate all my bills
altogether; that would be
something!

When Kathy Post, Nation-

Lucie West, heard of the mur-
ders, she was shocked.
"Even though each insur-
ance agency is independently
owned, we're still colleagues,"
said Mrs. Post.
Her office and its 14
employees contributed to a

families, but she felt it wasn't
enough.
"We treat our agents as if
they are family, and I can't
imagine what Scott Headley
* (owner of the Polk County
offices) is going through," she
said. '
Office manager Rebecca
O'Brien agreed.
"When we heard what hap-
pened, it really had an impact
on us. It could have happened
to any one of us. We sent in
donations, but we wanted to
do more," she said.
Ms. O'Brien said the office
learned that one of the rea-
sons the women lived for a
short time after the attacks
was because they received
blood transfusions.

BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer

STUART Dr. Ronald
Frenkel is serious about
helping those who suffer
from eye diseases to regain
their sight.
A board certified and
fellowship-trained oph-'
thalmologist, Dr. Frenkel
has devoted his life to the
study'and implementation
of the most advanced
treatments for macular
degeneration and glauco-
ma and is a certified mac-
ular degeneration investi-
gator.
After interning at
Harvard Medical School
and the Kresge Eye
Institute and returning to
Harvard to pursue
advanced sub-specialty
fellowship training, he
moved to Stuart, where he
founded the East Florida
Eye Institute in 1989.
Since that time, he says
he has seen dramatic
changes in the way that
certain eye diseases are
treated and the abandon-
ment of laser therapy as a
treatment in wet macular
degeneration, which
always caused scarring on
the eyes.
"The treatment in mac-
ular degeneration has real-
ly been revolutionized over
the last couple of years,"
he'said. "The laser treat-
ments were very destruc-
tive. Now we're using drugs
instead."
Dr. Frenkel is particu-
larly excited about a new,
drug recently approved by
the Food and Drug
Administration, Lucentis.
It's part of the Anti-VEGF
(Vascular Endothelial
Growth Factor) class of
medicines, which help
block the growth of abnor-
mal blood vessels in the
eye.
"This has been a major
advance in the treatment


;h eye care
years
of macular degeneration,"
he said. "It's a drug that's
injected directly into the,
eye by a tiny needle."
The injections are given
monthly, but there's .also
another recently approved
drug in the same class,
Avistin, which he says may
work even better.
"This appears that it
may need to be injected
less often than Lucentis,
and it's also a stronger
drug," he said.
Unlike in the treatment
of cancer and other incur-
able diseases, the field of
ophthalmology has been
slow to adopt the use of
clinical trials, in which
participants take new
drugs that are still awaiting
FDA approval. That's now
changing, and Dr. Frenkel
is proud that the East
Florida Eye Institute can
now offer its patients that
option as well. There are
currently several clinical
trials underway or accept-
ing enrollment in the
treatment of both wet and
dry macular degeneration,
diabetic eye disease and
uveitis.
"With the VEGF trial,
none of the patients were
taking placebos and we
could see within a week
that it was working," he
said excitedly. "Our experi-
ence has mirrored that of
other ophthalmologists."
He emphasizes that
he's seen the most radical
changes over the years in
the treatment of wet mac-
ular degeneration.
'In the beginning, there
was very little hope," he
said. Now we're able to sta-
bilize the vision in 90 per-
cent of the cases and
improve the vision in 30
percent."
One of the most chal-
lenging areas of his career
has been in the treatment
of the dry form of the dis-
ease, a much slower


Dr. Ronald Frenkel, left, looks on as technician
John Mucciolo of Stuart examines patient Erika
Iding, with the newest high-tech instrument avail-
able at East Florida Eye Institute. Known as a
Heidelberg RetinalAngiography, the device enables
Dr. Frenkel to better predict the progression of eye
diseases.


process that occurs over a
longer period of time.
Although he could recom-
mend that patients supple-
ment their diets with
antioxidants such as zinc,
selenium, and vitamins C,
E, and A, he never had a
drug therapy until the
recent introduction of a
new medicine called
Fenretinide.
Now, his institute is.
about to begin a clinical
trial for patients utilizing
the drug and has purchased
a $100,000 high-tech
machine known as a
Heidelberg Retinal
Angiography. The device is a
high resolution scanning
laser ophthalmoscope that
will enable the clinic's staff
to better predict the future
progression of a patient's
eye disease.
"Most universities don't
even have this type of
equipment," he said. "Since
macular degeneration is the
major cause of blindness in
older Americans, we're
looking to prevent that."
Dr. Frenkel's clinic has
steadily grown over the
years, and in 2003, he was
joined by Dr. Allison
Repreicht Toler, a board-


certified optometric physi-
cian educated at the
Boscom Palmer Eye
Institute of the University of
Miami's School of Medicine.
Then, in 2007, another
board-certified optometric
physician educated at the
Southern College of
Optometry in Memphis, Dr.
AmandaWeiss, came on
board.
East Florida Eye Institute
also boasts an on-site opti-
cal shop, Discount Designer
Optical, which offers a full
line of frames combined
with the latest state-of-the-
art technology.
In spite of all the success
and acclaim, Dr. Frenkel
says the real motivation for
him is helping those suffer-
ing from eye ailments.
"We had a patient with
wet macular degeneration
who was legally blind and
who we treated with drug
therapy," he said. "She was
ecstatic because she could
read again and write her l'
own checks. That's what
makes it all worthwhile."

WE ARE SERIOUS ABOUT RESULTS!
SA Bodysculpture
(Tumescent Liposculpture)
SA Bodysculpture (Tumescent Liposculpture) is one of the safest
performed cosmetic procedures in the United States. It is an
advanced technique of permanently removing excess fat
deposits in the areas that are resistant to diet and
exercise. The tumescent technique, reduces (post operative)
bruising, swelling, pain and minimizes blood loss.
'SA Bodysculpture has evolved a great deal over the past sev-
eral years and is an extremely safe procedure with minimal
downtime. By using only local anesthetic, the procedure has
3 virtually eliminated the high risks commonly associated with
traditional liposuction under general anesthesia. Plus, the
procedure uses finer instruments for a more accurate and
controlled sculpting. This highly precise procedure allows us
Sto target specific areas with accuracy and control like never
before possible.

vate citizens, was formed
in October 2007 after a res-
olution was passed direct-
ing the county to start
moving forward with bet-
ter environmental prac-
tices. Those on the com-
mittee include County
Commissioner Doug Cow-
ard, Port St. Lucie council-
woman Linda Bartz, Fort
Pierce commissioner Ed
Becht and representatives
of Florida Power and Light,
Fort Pierce Utilities
Authority, Port St. Lucie
Utilities, the Treasure
Coast Builders Association
and the St. Lucie County
Conservation Alliance.
As indicated in the reso-
lution, the county is com-
mitted to taking action
that will result in the use of
renewable resources; ener-
gy, water and cost savings
through high performance
buildings and landscapes;
environmentally preferred
products, materials and
services; increased recy-
cling and materials reuse;
historical preservation;
and waste reduction.
"Right now, what we
decided on first is to try
and get our hands around
sustainability, as every-
body has a unique view of
what's important and what
isn't," said Jeffrey P. (JP).
Gellermann, a growth
management agent with
the University of Florida's
St. Lucie Extension and
chairman of the commit-
tee.
Mr. Gellermann said the
purpose of the March 17
meeting was to gather
information from two
Florida architectural firms,
Zyscovich Architects,
designers of Allapattah
Flats K-8 school and
Schenkel Schultz Architec-
ture, designers of Treasure
Coast High School. Both
firms are experienced in
building environmentally-
friendly offices and
schools.
'At our next meeting, we
are going to start delving
into the 'low-hanging fruit'
to make recommendations
and start accomplishing
goals. We've got the infor-
mation, now we have to
look at step one and find
out what we can get the
Board of County Commis-
sioners to do," he said.
Mr. Gellermann said
that will require two to
three hours of debate and
"knocking around ideas,".
which will then be voted
on by the Sustainability
Advisory board at their
next meeting, which is
open to the public.

written, formal recommen-
dation," he said.
Mr. Gellermann said one
of the major goals of his
committee is to become
certified by the Florida
Green Building Coalition
with. its "Green Local Gov-
ernment Standard," which
recognizes counties or cities
in Florida for their out-
standing environmental
stewardship.
According to FGBC's Web
site, "It is expected that cer-
tified green city and county
governments will not only
gain recognition and pub-
licity, but also function in a
more efficient manner
through 'better internal
.communication, cost
reductions and effective risk
and asset management."
Mr. Gellermann said Mar-
tin and Indian River coun-
ties are also seeking certifi-
cation from FBGC.
"There are green cities
and green counties, but we
could become the first in
the state to become a green
region," he said.

our lives on the line every

jobs are on the line too."
It's a fear that Sheriff
Mascara appears to con-
firm.
"My best case scenario
is that we do not lay any-
body off," he said, but
later added, "I don't think
it's likely."
But he stressed that the
department was still in
talks with the county and
that the final budget is not
likely to come up for
approval until next Sep-
tember.

"This is not the end of
the discussion," he said.
"This was just a case of
scenarios that were
brought before the board
to show them my expens-
es as we enter into the
budget process."
. The department has
absorbed eight of the pos-
sible 37 positions that
were up for elimination,
he added. The death of
two deputies in recent
weeks and the retirement
of other officers have
helped to spare some
jobs, Sheriff Mascara said.


"Layoffs are probable,
(but) my staff and I are
working every day, look-
ing at options to prevent
the layoffs from occur-
ring," he said.
Last year, the sheriff's
office returned more than
$1 million from its budget
to county commissioners.
"As we look forward, as
sheriff, I am diligent in
trying to save money from
our budget, and that's one
of the tools I'll be using
next year to address the
shortfall," Mr. Mascara
said.,

Have you ever thought about what will happen to you after you die? Do
you ever reflect upon the spiritual state of your soul? Do you think about life
after death and your salvation? These questions are definitely the most
important questions we all need to ask ourselves. After all, what is more
important than our own salvation and the salvation of others? To speak of
our salvation infers that we are "saved" from something. What is that "some-
thing" that we are "saved" from if not the eternal loss of our souls in the fires
of hell? God made all human beings in His image and likeness. We are
immortal beings; we will exist forever. God created us to know Him and to
Love Him and dwell with Him in Heaven for all eternity. He greatly desires
the salvation of all men and women. However, with the entrance of sin into
the human race from the beginning of our human family, this salvation or
ours was threatened. sin is an infinite offense against God. It is sin, and sin
alone, which casts God out of our hearts whether partially as a result of
venial sin, or completely as a result of mortal sin. God hates sin, but He loves
the sinner.

The good news is that God's love for us is so great that He offers us the
gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. God's plan of salvation for human
beings rests upon the offer of mercy through our Lord and Savior Jesus
Christ who merited salvation for us by His passion and death on the cross.
There is no other name under Heaven through which we can receive salva-
tion.


Our salvation is offered to us by God through His mercy, but we must
respond to this offer. We must choose to accept or reject God's mercy and sal-
vation. God made us but He cannot save us without our permission. In the
end all human beings must choose for or against God. Our final resting place, in Heaven or hell, will be that of
our own choosing. God works hard for our salvation and gives us many graces and opportunities to turn our
hearts towards Him. Through His Church, He has offered us a complete remedy, that if used correctly and with
good intention, will prepare us for our eternal journey home to Heaven.

We would like to take this opportunity to announce to you a great feast established in the Catholic
Church called "Divine Mercy Sunday". This feast was requested by Jesus Himself through a great modern-day
prophet named St. Faustina. Jesus appeared to St. Faustina in 1931 and told her that she was going to prepare
the world for His Second Coming. Jesus told her to record everything that He was going to tell her in a diary,
because it would be for all humanity. Jesus told her that He was going to pour out His mercy before He comes
again, just like a whole ocean, on all those who would go and make a good Confession and receive jesus in Holy
Communion on that special Feast of Divine Mercy. St. Faustina recorded these words of Jesus:

I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially for poor
sinners. On that day the very depths on My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of
graces upon those souls who approach the fount of My mercy. The soul that will go to Confession'
and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. On that,
day all the divine flood gates through which grace flow are opened. Let no soul fear to draw near to
Me, even though its sins be as scarlet. My mercy is so great that no mind, be it of man or of angel,
will be able to fathom it throughout all eternity. Every soul in its relation to Me will contemplate
My love and mercy throughout all eternity. The Feast of Mercy emerged from My very depths of ten-
derness. It is My desire that it be solemnly celebrated on the first Sunday after Easter. Mankind will
not have peace until it turns to the Fount of My Mercy. (Diary, 669)
Jesus also said that the Feast of Mercy would be the last hope of salvation. He said "Souls perish in
spite of My bitter Passion. I am giving them the last hope of salvation; that is, the Feast of My
Mercy. If they will not adore My mercy, the will perish for all eternity.. Tell souls about this great
mercy of Mine, because the awful day, the day of My justice, is near."(Diary, 965)

Jesus also told St. Faustina "When you approach the confessional, know this, that I Myself am
waiting there for you. I am only hidden by the priest, but I Myself act in your soul. Here the misery
of the soul meets the God of mercy. Make your confession before Me. The person of the priest is, for
Me, only a screen. never analyze what sort of a priest it is that I am making use of; open your soul
in confession as you would to Me, and I will fill it with My light. Every time you go to
confession,immerse yourself entirely in My mercy with great trust, so that I may pour the bounty of
My grace upon your soul. Tell souls that from this fount of mercy souls draw graces solely with the
vessel of trust. If there trust is great, there is no limit to my generosity. Tell sinners that I am
always waiting for them, that I listen intently to the beating of their heart...when will it beat for
me? (from the Diary entries 1602, 1725, 1728)

We hope that these words inspire you to believe and trust in the Divine Mercy of God and encourage
you to participate in this Feast. St. Lucie's will offer a solemn celebration of the Feast of Divine Mercy at the
vigil masses on Saturday, March 29th and at the Sunday Masses on March 30th. Confessions will be held at St.
Lucie's Catholic Church for parishioners from.2pm to 3:30pm on Saturday, March 2th, just before Divine Mercy
Sunday. Check your local parish for confession times.

Mass times at St. Lucie's are Saturdays at 4 & 5:30pm, (Spanish) at 7:30pm. Sunday at 6:15am,
7:30am, 9:30am, 11:30am, 5:30pm and (Spanish) 7pm. there will also be a special "Hour of Mercy" with Fr.
Vincent Rubino, OFM conv. between 3pm and 4pm on Divine Mercy Sunday.

Do not let your sins, however many or however great keep you away from our God. He waits with arms
wide opened to embrace you with His mercy. If you have been away from the Church for a while,.or if you no
longer attend mass each Sunday, and you no longer practice your faith, you will have a chance to turn your life
around and start a whole brand new life again. God's Divine Mercy offers us the opportunity for a completely
brand new beginning. As long as we are still living and breathing it is never too late to turn to the Lord for
mercy. Trust in God's mercy. Take advantage of His great mercy today. Like Jesus said, He is waiting for you in
the confessional.

called "Divine Mercy Sunday" and how you can obtain the complete forgiveness of sins and punishment and a
brand new start, please visit our web page on the internet. Our website address is http://www.stlucie.cc Click on

ARC of St. Lucie County


celebrates the history of music


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
' It's an ambitious under-
taking, telling the story of
the history of music, but
the members of the Flori-
da Performing and Visual
Arts Troupe, made up of
persons with disabilities
from the ARC of St. Lucie
County, have beentackling
challenges all of their lives.
They are joined' by
recording artists Jernie
and Andravy Mayes, stu-
dents from the Dance
Academy of Stuart and
Florida Arts and Dance
and other local performers
in the ARC's ninth annual
fundraiser, .presented this
year at the Sunrise Theatre
on April 4.
The troupe consists of
adults and children with
disabilities that include
brain and spinal cord
injuries, down syndrome,
autism and hearing and
vision impairment.
They perform through-
out the community, at
schools and assisted living
facilities. Tina Patterson,
the program supervisor,
practices with the per-
formers all year long in
preparation for the event,
and she spoke enthusiasti-
cally about this year's pro-
gram, "The History of
Music."
"We start with the cave-
men," she said. "We have
dancers from Florida Arts
and Dance and 10 of our
troupe. "Then there's the


music of Egypt, Gregorian
chants, the minuet and
waltz, and the different
cultures in America, from
the Native Americans,
African-Americans, and
through the 1920s, 1930s,
1940s, and 1950s. There's
even a Beatles medley,
right up to the millenni-
um. We have voiceovers
explaining how the music
evolved."
The goal of the show,
which also features Ms.
Patterson's daughters
Tasha and Tara, both
dancers; Emile Powers and
Jacob DiBiasio, ballroom
dancers; John Barnes,
music director for the Pine
School; and drummer Joe
Montetare from the Elks
Club, hope is to raise funds
to build a therapeutic visu-
al and performing arts
center. In addition, they
would like to put in a state-
of-the art pool.
"We could have special
aquatics therapy with the
95 degree water," Ms. Pat-
terson said. "It would be
so calming for people with
autism or spasticity."
Ms. Patterson knows the
importance of the per-
formance, for the audi-
ence, as well as for the per-
formers.
"I hope people will come
and support it," she said.
"We see when we go to the
schools. The younger peo-
ple make fun, but when we
go to school and they see
how our students are like

now lives in Port St. Lucie.
One night, with 250 reser-
vations booked, the chef
failed to show up for work.
"There was no one else
around, so I stepped up and
told my father I could do it. I
was 14 at the time and they
didn't have any choice," Mr.
Merone said. "The night
went perfectly and we got
lots of compliments."
The entire restaurant staff
took notice.
"At the end of the night, all
the waiters got in line to
shake my hand. From then
on, I knew what I was going
to do."
Over the next 33 years, Mr.
Merone perfected his craft,


training many others in the
restaurant business in the
process.
A condition called chronic
venous insufficiency that
Mr. Merone has in his legs
now prevents him from
working full time. However,
it hasn't stopped him from
finding other unique ways
to share his love of food.
Mr. Merone recently pub-
lished a cook book called
"An Easy Way to Cooking
Italian Gourmet," and he is
available for private cooking
lessons, catering and con-
sultations on catering in
both private homes and
restaurants.
"The reason for the cook-


book is mostly for working
people. None of the recipes
take more than 20 minutes,"
said Mr. Merone.
Mr. Merone has had expe-
rience in bakeries, delis and
even in butchering meats.
"I can take a person who
can't do anything in the
kitchen and turn them into
a cook in a week," he said.
"Never say you can't do it,
because you can. That's my
motto just try it and you
can do it."
For more information on
Mr. Merone's cookbook or
cooking lessons, contact him

you just to see what you are
going to do next. This kind of
leadership isn't taught in
schools. You were born with
it. Continue to use it in your
daily adventures. You make it
look so easy. We all should
be more like you.

Libra-Sept. 23-Oct. 22
You are truly amazing. You
have a reservoir of skills and
energy that never runs dry.
You are more than a survivor.
You are a light along the path
for all who know you. You are
always there when needed.
You go and go and then go
some more. Just limit your
main tasks to the three most
important each day. Quality is
better than quantity.

Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 22
When you feel good, your
mind works more clearly.
When your mind is clear, your
heart motivates you to action.
The action brings strong
results. Now the circle is
complete. It makes you want
to repeat the winning formu-
la over and over. This is the
way that positive Scorpios
operate their flow of energy.


What a wonderful example
you set.

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
You are at your best when
you are psyched up and run-
ning on a natural high. You
are, first and foremost, a goal
setter, always looking ahead
and shooting for the stars.
These gifts were given at
birth. Stay focused, move for-
ward and watch the flood-
gates open and bring you
abundance where you place
your energy now. You are
awesome.

Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Wake up each morning giving
thanks for the new wonderful
day ahead, and more good
will come your way. Jupiter,
the planet of expansion in
Capricorn, will see to that.
Stay grounded and refuse to
let the world 'pus you
around. Just be sure you are
moving in the right direction.
Follow your heart and it will
always tell you.

Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
You are happier when things
get done in an orderly man-


ner. With so many responsi-
bilities, it is important to keep
on communicating and dele-
,gating lesser things to trusted
associates. Be highly selec-
tive where you place your
tirrie and energy. Your natural
skills at making adjustments
will always get you back on
track when needed.

Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
Mercury, Venus and Uranus
give you a tremendous edge
in creative and spiritual
insights now. It's like a boost-
er rocket safely sending your
ideas into the proper orbit.
You may be a water sign, but
you are flying and guided by
very high powers.. Are you lis-
tening? It's your dream. You
are following it. It makes oth-
ers want to do the same. You
make everyone a winner.

do Merone went from odd
jobs to head cook in one
night, all because the chef
on duty didn't show up for
work.
When Mr. Merone's father
moved his family from New
York to Fort Lauderdale and
opened a restaurant in 1974,
he put his young son to
work in the restaurant.
"I was the go-fer. I never

Easy low-calorie snacks, olives,


hummus and great desserts


SA sI promised a while
/-Aback, I will give you
J_ More 50-calorie
"between meal" snacks,
then a recipe for hummus,
cured olives, a quick
cheesecake and a knock-
* your-socks-off fresh straw-
berry pie from Glenn in
honor of his mother.

Three saltines each
topped with two thin
slices of turkey pepperoni

barley soup
1 fig bar
12 M&M chocolate
candies
2 cups light microwave

discarded, stuffed with
hummus
To burn 50 calories, try 30
minutes of walking, giggling
or best of all, 30 minutes of

OLIVES
The supermarkets how
have variety of specialty
olives. Check out your local
butcher shop or Italian deli
for olives at much better
prices. Oil-cured olives are
also sold in jars, but I
purchased a pound at my
favorite butcher shop for
only $2.99. The olives have a
strong, "bitey" taste (they
also have pits) and the oil is
very black.

them like that." Rinse the
olives under very hot water,
drain and put them in a
saucepan. To dry the olives,
heat them for a few min-
utes, turning constantly.
Remove from heat, and add
a little fresh olive oil and a
few shakes of crushed hot
pepper. Store in the refriger-
ator. Wonderful in salads!

HUMMUS
Chickpeas are nutrient
dense and delicious in a dip.
2 cans, drained and
rinsed, chickpeas
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 medium garlic cloves,
peeled
Dash of cayenne pepper,
3 tablespoons tahini
(ground sesame seeds)
Process until smooth;
serve with bagel chips, pita
chips, low-fat crackers or for
a very different treat,
remove and discard yolk
from hardboiled eggs and
stuff with hummus; sprinkle
with paprika.

QUICK CHERRY,
CHEESECAKE
This is a great, quick
recipe for a delicious
dessert. I've tried making it
virtually fat-free with no
luck, but you can make it
lower fat.
Two 8-ounce packages
cream cheese, regular or


low fat
2/3 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs
1 cup sour cream, regular
or low fat
1 large graham cracker
crumb crust
Cream sugar and cream
cheese. Add eggs one at a
time, mixing well after each
addition. Add vanilla; mix.
Fold in sour cream. Pour in
piecrust, and bake in a 350-
degree oven for about 40
minutes.
Cool and chill. Serve
topped with cherry pie
filling or any topping of
your choice.

GLENN'S FRESH
STRAWBERRY PIE
This strawberry pie is
different and more time-
consuming than any I've
tried, but it is absolutely
wonderful.
I have not tried using a
sugar substitute. If you do,
and it works please let me
know.
On the day before, slice
half the strawberries, and
mix with the sugar. Refriger-
ate for 6-8 hours or
overnight.
1.5 pounds fresh
strawberries
1 cup sugar
I tablespoon lemon juice
2 level tablespoon and 2
teaspoons cornstarch
One 9- or 10-inch pie shell
Prepare a 9- or 10-inch pie
shell by pricking the dough
with a fork all over, includ-
ing the sides. Bake at 400
degrees until lightly
browned.
Optional: For a French
pie, blend 3 ounces cream
cheese with 3 tablespoons
cream or milk, and spread
over cooled pie shell. (To
lower fat and cholesterol,
use both fat-free cream
cheese and half and half).
Pour the refrigerated
strawberries and liquid into
a blender, and blend until
smooth. Place in a
saucepan, add lemon juice

and cook over low heat until
almost bubbly. Mix corn-
starch with a little water
until smooth; slowly add to
strawberries stirring
constantly until thickened
and shiny. (It should be the
consistency of pudding
before it sets). Remove from
heat.
Slice remaining strawber-
ries, and place a layer onto.
baked pie shell. Pour enough
of the glazed mixture to
cover berries. Add remaining
berries, and top with glaze to
fill the pie shell. If you have
extra glaze, enjoy it over ice
cream. Chill pie; serve
topped with sweetened
whipped cream or topping.
What makes this recipe so
interesting is you are actually

Jersey Mike's Subs: Have it 'Mike's Way'


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Dining Review Crew


Staff photo by Donald Rodrigue
Mirlande St. Louis, 18, of Port St. Lucie, prepares a cold
turkey breast and provolone submarine sandwich for a
customer recently at Jersey Mike's Subs in Port St. Lucie.
The restaurant is famous for its fresh made-to-order sand-
wiches and wraps, and none of the ingredients are cut,
sliced or chopped until the order is placed.


Since last July, Port St.
Lucie residents have been
enjoying one of the most
original and freshest
submarine sandwiches on
the planet, thanks to
Jersey Mike's in the Key
Lime Plaza on Port St.
Lucie Boulevard.
Stuart residents have
savored the made-to-order
subs and wraps ever since
the Indian Street Shoppes
location opened on South
Federal Highway in the fall
of 2001.
The owner of the two
local franchises, Troy
Aymond, says customers
enjoy watching as their
subs and wraps are freshly
made to order.
"We custom make the
subs in front of the cus-
tomer," he said.
Jersey Mike's was
founded in Point Pleasant,
N.J. in 1956 and has long
been known for making
sandwiches the fresh,
delicatessen way. It's still
owned by a long-time


employee, Peter Cancro,
who bought the operation
in 1975 at age 17 and grew
it into more than 300
franchises.
Unlike other chain sub
shops, Jersey Mike's does
not pre-cut any of its
. meats and cheeses for its
subs, but rather custom
. slices the ingredients for
each sandwich and wrap.
In order to speed things
up, managers are trained
to utilize a sandwich
assembly line, in which
each person is responsible
for the different functions
of slicing, sprinkling and
wrapping for efficiency.
Jersey Mike's offers a
huge variety of both cold
and hot subs served on
freshly baked bread, all of
which are also available as
wrap sandwiches. Cold
submarines include
everything from a combi-
nation of cheese, proscuit-
tini and cappacuolo to a
BLT, roast beef (utilizing
only certified Angus beef
top round) turkey breast
and the Cancro Special
(cheese, roast beef and


pepperoni). All cold subs
come dressed "Mike's
Way," with onions, lettuce,
tomatoes, vinegar and oil
and spices. The additional
toppings of mayonnaise,
mustard, pickles and hot
peppers are also available.
Hot subs include meat-


ball and cheese, barbecue
beef, chicken Parmesan
and the chipotle cheese
steak, which was Mr.
Cancro's favorite and
bears his high-school
football jersey number.

Ask The Jeweler

20th-Century
Jewelry
The jewels of Spanish
painter Salvador Dali
were more extravagant
and were more repre-
sentative of design for its
own sake than as a func-
tion of the jewel to be
worn. Although a great
deal of modern jewelry is
designed and made by
large firms, the tradition
of the artist craftsman is
strong in Scandinavia
and the United States,
where silver, semi-
precious stones, ham-
mered copper, and
other less costly materials
are commonly used.
Plastics are often
employed in expensive
jewelry. Arts-and-crafts
shops produce vast
selections of abstract
and naturalistic designs
in rings bracelets, ear-
ings, necklaces, and
broaches. Although jew-
elry in the 19th and early
20th century was worn
primarily by women, in
the late 20th Century
some men were wearing
jewelry such as
neckchains, bracelets,
and earrings.

Golfers settle naming 'The Spoiler'


s the sun came up
over the horizon and
the dew glistened
atop the grass, three
uniquely distinguished
gentlemen removed the
headcovers from their
respective drivers.
They were preparing for
battle, but little did they
realize that the battle
would not be against each
other.
Rather, their true foe was
the battleground itself, the
18th hole at Fairwinds Golf
Course in Fort Pierce,
which they had befittingly
named "The Spoiler."
How Spencer Pope, Ray
Riley and Mike Eustace
came to be here in this
place at this moment is
just a part of the story.
A short time ago, Matt
Baum, golf course manag-
er and head professional at
Fairwinds, decided to have
yardage books made of the
course. The idea was to
provide golfers with as
much information about
the course as possible.
"When we sent out to
have the books made," said
Baum, "the company asked
us if we wanted just the
hole number for each hole,
or did we have a name for
each that we'd like to
include."
The thought sparked a
grand idea in Baum's head.


JAMES STAMMER
Golf columnist


Why not give every hole a
name, using an aeronauti-
cal theme. since the course
is adjacent to St. Lucie
County International
Airport?
To get the course's
members and the county's
other golfers involved, it
was decided that there
would be a contest to
"name the 18th hole at
Fairwinds Golf Course."
The treacherous hole has
earned quite a legacy over
the 17 years that the
course has been open. The
par-4 hole, with water
coming into play on every
shot, has the reputation of
ruining many a good
round of golf.
The contest was a huge
success, with several
hundred names being
suggested. Some sugges-

tions had more than a little
venom in them, and while
accurately descriptive of
the hole, they were
unprintable here or in the
yardage books.
"We found out just how
much people dislike that'
hole," said Baum, laugh-
ing.
The winning name,
determined by a vote, is
"The Spoiler." That is how
these three men, Mike,
Raymond and Spencer,
came to be on the 18th tee
last Thursday, prepared to
settle things among
themselves and with "The
Spoiler."
Each of these gentlemen
had suggested the winning
name. Since only one
could claim the prize and
the glory that goes with it,
it was determined that
things would be settled in
the only way imaginable. A
sudden-death playoff on
the hole they have come to
love and hate.
At stake that crisp, cool
morning were bragging
rights, a foursome of golf,
lunch, a dozen Titleist golf
balls and a new custom
Ping G10 Titanium driver.
Luckily, all three com-
batants were evenly
matched, making fbr a
most entertaining
fight. The first shot of the
match quickly found a

watery grave, which was
followed by a sigh and a
resounding "that's one in,"
from the remaining two
players.
Somehow the next two
tee shots found dry
ground, but there was still
a lot of ground, and water,
to cover. They played from
lies of every sort, and
before the dust settled, all
three players had found
the water once. After all
the practice swings,
penalty strokes and
trouble shots, the stage
was set, with all three
finally on the green and
within in a stroke or two of
each other.
Ray made a testy 4-foot
putt to match Spencer's
score on the hole, while
Mike was eliminated with
a miss.
Spencer and Ray then
made their way to the
approach area on the 18th
for a pitch and putt
shootout. Again it came
down to putting, with Ray
missing this time to give
Spencer another chance by
tying him.
The final stage was a
putt-off to break the
tie. The putt they were
facing was a long, downhill
left-handed curler from
the middle tier down to the

Indian River flows to national titles


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
FORT PIERCE With all
due respects to Green Bay,
Fort Pierce namely Indi-
an River Community Col-
lege is becoming the
East Coast's version of
"Titletown," where the
swimming and diving
team collects national
championships like most
kids accumulate baseball
cards or Harry Potter
books.
Recently in early March,
the men's and women's
squads did it again, easily
outdistancing the nearest
competitors to keep the
crowns where they belong
while adding another year
to the outside of the IRCC
gym where the school will
seemingly one day run out
of room.
"The bottom line is that
it comes down to hard
work," IRCC second-year
head coach Frank Bradley
said. "There is definitely
some pressure in continu-
ing the streak and the tra-
dition."
The streak that Bradley
refers to has grown to
astronomical proportions.
In walloping second-place
Lincoln College 1,113.5 to
460 the men earned its
.34th straighttitle.
The women dominated
as well, defeating runner-
up Monroe Community
College 948 to 470 to win
its 27th straight champi-
onship and 30th overall.
"We worked together
really hard as a team,"
diver Kayla Purkiser said.
"Everything fell into place.
"It feels amazing. So
many people before me
have done it. We kept the
tradition going. You know
you did your part to help
keep it alive."
The sophomore did just
that and more. The reign-
ing NJCAA champion in
the 1-and 3-meter spring-
board started out this sea-
son with two goals and she
helped achieve them both
in stunning fashion.
"I wanted to rebreak the
national record in the 1-
and the 3-meter which I
already, had, and to win
nationalsas as team,"
Purkiser said. "I accom-
plished everything.
"It was a really good feel-
ing to rebreak both
records."
Her coach was equally
impressed with her per-
formance.
"She did a great job,"
Bradley said. "She's still
progressing. She's still get-
ting better.
"She worked hard for it
and put it together at the
right time."
The same can be said of
Gideon Louw. Louw
capped off his career at
IRCC in spectacular fash-
ion, helping to set eight
national records at the
meet.
The sophomore was part
of record-breaking per-
formances in the 400 and
800 freestyle relay events,
as well as the 400 medley
relay. Louw also set five
individual marks, two each
in the 100 freestyle and 200
free, as well as one in the
50 free.
Louw's accomplish-
ments earned him another
accolade the 2008 Men's
Swimmer of the Year.

"He shattered records he
already had," Bradley said.
"They were very, very
impressive performances."
For Louw, who hails
from South Africa, his
career at IRCC which
has earned him a spot with
the reigning NCAA cham-
pion Auburn Tigers- fin-
ished way more promising
than it started.
"He came from a real
long way from when he
first walked in here,"
Bradley said. "Over a year
ago this guy was strug-
gling. He was going
through a time when this
was not what he bargained
for.
"I told him to stick by me
and by the program and a
couple months later he
broke some national
records.
."Now, some people are
saying he's the best junior
college swimmer to come
from here.
"Now, I have to let him
go."
Such is the life of the
community college coach.


Bradley comes in knowing
he has just a two-year win-
dow to help .develop his
team members to not only
compete at the junior col-
lege, but like Louw and
Purkiser -who is heading
to Louisville at the
NCAA level.
"I'm so excited for them,
but it can be very, very dif-
ficult," Bradley said.
"Some people you develop
real strong relationships
with. You get pretty
attached to them. You go
through successes and
failures with them.
"It can be tough, but you
keep moving forward.
After just a short time to
celebrate his team's
accomplishments, Bradley
has already made inroads
to do just that.
"I took Sunday to relax
and Monday I hit recruit-
ing again," Bradley said.
"We have six women grad-
uating and nine men grad-
uating so I have got a lot of
work to do.
"You're having to always
recruit half your team

SMets' stars shine in squashing of Nats

BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
So far this spring, winning
has just felt Wright for the
New York Mets.
As in David Wright.
Led by its All-Star third
baseman, the Mets are near
the top of the National
League standings, as Spring
Training draws to a close.
The team hopes to have
similar success when the
regular season winds down
as well.
"With the team we have I
don't expect anything less
than to win a World Series,"
Wright said earlier this
spring. "It's one thing to
have a good team on paper.
We have to be willing to put
the work in to win.

to help rally the Mets' in

Up until Wright's blast, the

resembled its regular sea-
son order with the excep-
tion of Raul Casanova
behind the plate finally
came to life in the fifth
inning.
Jose Reyes ripped a one-
out double to left, but was
later thrown out by former
Met Paul LoDuca trying to
swipe third. Luis Castillo
grounded to second, but
the ball was thrown away by


Felipe Lopez, allowing
Castillo to reach safely.
Wright then deposited a
3-2 pitch over the left-field
fence to tie the game,
delighting the 6,397 in
attendance.
With the bullpen shutting
down the Nationals, the
Mets added three more
runs the following inning.
Former Indian River Com-
munity College standout
Angel Pagan continued his
torrid pace, smashing a 3-2
pitch deep to right center,
narrowing missing a home
run.
"Hopefully, I keep on
doing what I'm doing,"
Pagan said.
Pagan ended up on third
with a stand up triple and
scored on Marlon Ander-
son's double off the wall
three batters later.
Ryan Church, who walked
on four pitches after
Pagan's hit, came home on
Reyes' second double of the
game, as did Anderson to
make it 5-2.
After a solid inning of
work by Pedro Feliciano,
the Mets hitters continued
to produce at the plate.
Wright lofted a fly ball to
left that Rob Machowiak
misplayed for an error.
Endy Chavez singled to
right, putting runners on
the corners.

Fernando Tatis who is
trying to make the club as a
non-roster invitee -lifted a
sacrifice fly to center to
plate Wright.
"I like his experience,"
Mets' manager Willie Ran-
dolph said of Tatis. "He's
come out in good shape."
The Mets tacked on two
more runs in the inning,
taking an 8-2 lead. Matt
Wise, who continues to
impress this spring having
allowed just one earned
run in just over nine
innings of work, pitched a
scoreless ninth to preserve
the Mets' win.
Wise's efforts in relief
capped off a solid day by
the Mets' pitching staff, led
by Martinez's second out-
ing of the spring. The right-
handed pitcher tossed five
effective innings, scattering
five hits while allowing two
earned runs, including
Austin Kearns home run in
the fourth.
Perhaps most important-
ly, the outing was another
one removed from the rota-
tor-cuff surgery and subse-
"quent rehabilitation that
shelved Martinez for most
of the 2007 season.
"I'm healthy," Martinez
said. "I pitch my own game
and just do what I have to
do."

front. This time it was
Spencer who shined,
edging out Ray as his putt
finished closer to the hole.
At no point throughout
this epic battle was it ever
obvious who would come
out victorious.
While Mr. Pope went
home with the prize and
glory, it's impossible to
deny that "The Spoiler"
wasn't the true victor,
again.
