Local hospitals


end relationship


with area schools


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
An 11-year partnership
between area hospitals
and St. Lucie County
schools is coming to an
end with budget con-
straints being the culprit.
For over a decade, St.
Lucie Medical Center and
Lawnwood Regional
Medical Center and Heart
Institute have provided


medical support services
for high school athletics.
Now, that assistance has
been deemed too costly.
"I knew medical costs
have gone up consider-
ably," county athletic
director Jay Stewart said.
"They came in and said
they were going to option
out of the contract, given
the economic downturn.
"It's. been a tenuous

ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
The Humane Society of St.
Lucie County is raising
funds for a new building.
They just don't know where
that building will be.
Tlne issue is a controver-
sial one, as partial funding
for the Humane Society
comes from the cities of
Fort Pierce, Port St. Lucie
and the county. Add the fact
that Phase II of the expan-
sion of neighboring Heath-
cote Botanical Gardens

the Humane Society build-
ing now sits. Throw in the
suggestion of reducing the
pet population by having
the Humane Society offer
reduced or free spaying or
neutering of animals, an
effort endorsed by Fort
Pierce Mayor Bob Benton
and at least one county
commissioner, and you
have the makings of a hot-
button debate.
"There is a lot of talk
about a high-volume, low-
cost spay/neuter program
in low-income areas," said
Frank Andrews, executive
director of the Humane


Society. ".Well, low-cost
means subsidized, and
somebody has to pay for
the subsidy. It doesn't mat-
ter what it's marketed for,
but the cost is the same
whether it's us or anybody
else. It isn't really our func-
tion as a nonprofit to offer
an animal welfare subsidy
to people who can't afford
to keep their pet."
Mayor Benton said he is
concerned about burden-
ing the taxpayers with the
cost of a new building in a

Road to Success

honors its first

college graduate


BY RITA HART
Staff writer
FORT PIERCE - Ashley
Ritchie, a product of the St.
Lucie County foster care sys-
tem, wants very much to be a
teacher.
And despite facing a num-
ber of obstacles to her goal,
the 21-year-old Ms. Ritchie
became the county's first suc-
cess story for a program
designed to help older foster
children gain a college educa-
tion.
Ms. Ritchie is a Fort Pierce
resident who was in foster
care when she reached the
age of 18. At that time, she
"maxed" out of the system
and was suddenly turned out
on her own.
"Many foster children 'age'
out of care without a family
support system or an
address to come home to,"
said Denise Rivan in a recent
statement.
Ms. Rivan is director of
program services for United
for Families, which handles
placement for foster homes
on the Treasure Coast.
On March 25, United for
Families recognized Ms.
Ritchie as the first to gradu-
ate with an Associate of Arts
degree in its Road to Success
program. As part of the
honor, Ms. Ritchie received a
$1,000 incentive award.
"We wanted to recognize


what a great accomplish-
ment it was for her to get her
college degree," said Ms.
Rivan. "She is the first one in
her family to get a college
degree and there is no stop-
ping her. She will be a
teacher. That's her goal."
Armed with her Associate
of Arts degree in Early Child-
hood Education from Indian
River Community College,
Ms. Ritchie continues work-
ing toward that goal. She is
enrolled in Florida Atlantic
University and will begin
pursing her bachelor's
degree in the fall.
Making Ms. Ritchie's
dream possible is United for.
Families' Road to Indepen-
dence scholarship program.
If a youth is in foster care for
at least six months before
turning 18, remains in school
full-time and makes ade-
quate progress, he or she is
eligible to receive a monthly
stipend from the state to
help with living expenses.
The maximum amount they
can receive is $1,014 per
month.
"Youth that qualify also
qualify for a tuition voucher
that allows these young
adults to attend a Florida
state community college or
university, without paying
tuition. Ashley didn't have to

Sobering statistics

show need to stop

underage drinking


BY RITA HART
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE - By
their own admission, four
out of 10 children ages 10
to 14 have already con-
sumed alcohol, according
to the 2006 Florida Youth
Substance Abuse Survey.
Eric Miller, community
action site leader for
Mothers Against Drunk
Drivers, wants to change
those statistics, and he
starts by telling students
and parents about his own
failed opportunities and
ruined relationships.
At an April 23 event


sponsored by the Execu-
tive Roundtable of St.
Lucie County and the Port
St. Lucie Police Depart-
ment, Mr. Miller spoke of
his charmed youth grow-
ing up in Illinois.
A gifted student and ath-
lete who was sought by the
University of Notre Dame's
football scouts, Mr. Miller's
life spiraled out of control
when he started smoking
and began hanging out
with the wrong crowd. He
moved on to marijuana,
then LSD, before becom-
ing addicted to alcohol.

"I've asked the city and
the county commission to
take a look at the facility as I
have," said Mayor Benton.
"The facility is in a lot better
shape than it was five or six


years ago. I know there are
some areas that can be
fixed, as least until we get
through the budget crunch."
Mr. Andrews disagrees.
"We are not going to build
a palace," said Mr. Andrews.
"We are going to build a very
functional building that
enables us to provide com-
fortable, disease-free hous-


ing for the animals."
All three municipalities
are under contract with the
Humane Society to provide
funding. The contracts pro-
vide a total of $848,000 per
year, $265,000 of which
comes from Fort Pierce.
"There is a misconception
that the revenues we receive
-from our contracts are the
total picture," said Mr.
Andrews. "For every dollar
that we get from contracts,
we add to it to the tune of
some 60 percent. That
money's made. up from
things like the children who
recently brought in $131 in
pennies, the Mets fans who
contributed $600 at their
opening practice and our
board of directors which
really works its tail off. I

ASPIRIN AND TEETH
Q: What is pericoronitis?
A: Pericoronitis is a condition that occurs when the gum
surrounding an erupting third molar-commonly called a wisdom
tooth- becomes inflamed. From Latin and Greek,'the word
"pericoronitis" literally means "inflammation around the
crown". It .is a painful condition most likely to occur when the
wisdom tooth does not erupt normally but is tilted or partially
impacted.
Wisdom teeth generally erupt during late adolescence. An impacted
wisdom tooth is one that becomes lodged and can't emerge fully. When
this happens, bacteria and food particles can collect between the gum and
the tooth, potentially leading to infection. Once an infection begins, pain
and fever will be constant. Some cases require removal of the tooth to
avoid infection and damage to adjacent and/or opposing teeth. '

how much we subsidize this
whole business."
Mr. Andrews said the
Humane Society is simply
asking the municipalities to
honor their contractual
obligations.
"We understand that they
are tight with funding, too.
As a matter of fact, this year
we waived our contractual
increase. We were allowed
under the terms of the con-
tract to raise our fees and we
chose not to, recognizing
they had financial stric-
tures," he said.
After touring the Humane
Society, Mayor Benton
acknowledged the current
Humane Society's building
has problems with flooding,
which Mr. Andrews said
occurs every times it rains.
"When it comes to flood-
ing, the city could probably
run a four or six-inch PVC
drain pipe and put in some
drains. But then I would
want the experts to go in
and do a feasibility study."
Mr. Andrews disagreed
that a feasibility study was
the answer.
"It's a tired old building.
All the doors are rusted, it's
below grade, the ceilings in
our kennel leak, there isn't
any air circulation and the
building has added very

heavily to our operating
costs because we always
have to be concerned about
medical disease issues and
that sort of thing."
Mr. Andrews said the
building is not hurricane-
proof. After the last hurri-
cane, the roof required
repairs, and both the
screening enclosures and
the slide doors in the ken-
nels were destroyed.
"The concrete walls sur-
vived, but we had major
damage to the tune of
$60,000," said Annette
Miller, chair of the Humane
Society's board of directors.
When the Board of County
Commissioners met on
April 22, the issue of provid-
ing new land for the
Humane Society was on the
agenda, at the request of
Commissioner Charles
Grande.
The site in question is
approximately five acres of
land on Selvitz Road that
was suggested several years
ago when the county, Fort
Pierce, Heathcote and the
Humane Society were in dis-
cussions over Heathcote's
future expansion.
"When Fort Pierce pre-,
sented this to us several
years ago, we agreed to con-
sider relocating the Humane
Society," said county admin-
istrator Doug Anderson.
"We've been working on this
project for years. The city's
position appears to be
changing."
At the meeting, Commis-
sioner Grande asked why
the county, .rather than the
Humane Society, was
searching for a new site.
"We are probably their
largest customers," said Mr.
Anderson, referring to Ani-
mal Control.
Jack Southard, director of
public safety .for St. Lucie
County, said a new building
could actually save taxpay-
ers money.
"We are taking a lot of ani-


mals there and we feel it
could be more efficient and
lower the cost to taxpayers.
We're paying $118 per ani-
mal now," he said.
Mr. Southard pointed out
that Animal Control for the
city of Port St. Lucie trans-
ports animals to the Trea-
sure Coast Humane Society
in Martin County, because
its location is closer than the
Humane Society in Fort
Pierce. The proposed loca-
tion on Selvitz Road is
approximately half-way
between Port St. Lucie and
Fort Pierce.
The meeting became con-
tentious after Mrs. Miller
reminded the commission-
ers that the Humane Society
was subsidizing the cost of
housing and trying to reha-
bilitate the animals.
"How many animals do
we euthanize per year?"
asked Commissioner Doug
Coward.
When Mr. Andrews said
approximately 5,000 per
year were euthanized, Mr.
Coward said, "Maybe if we
reduce the number of ani-
mals that go into the facili-
ty, the existing facility will
be more palatable. We are
going to euthanize more
animals if we don't aggres-
sively address the funda-
mental root problem."
However, Mr. Southard
said this was not the issue
at hand.
"They're not looking for a
larger facility to euthanize
more animals," he said.
At the end of the commis-
sioner's meeting,. no deci-
sion was made on the pro-
posed site for the Humane
Society. Instead, it - was
agreed that the issue would
be tabled until a joint meet-
ing could .be held with rep-
resentatives from the cities
of Fort Pierce and Port St.
Lucie, as well as Heathcote
Botanical Gardens and the
Humane Society.

The new Fort Pierce Central High School on 25th Street in Fort Pierce is scheduled to open in August. The new facility is
similar in design to Treasure Coast High School in Port St. Lucie.


Former student reflects on racial


integration at Fort Pierce Central


BY SAMANTHA JOSEPH
Staff writer
ST. LUCIE COUNTY-
The race riots capped off his
reluctant introduction to
the new school.
And the police, armed
with tear gas, provided an
in-depth education on the
fear and suspicion preva-
lent as St. Lucie County's
school system tiptoed
toward racial integration 38
years ago.
Harry Belafonte Williams,
then age 17, was among the
first graduating class at Fort
Pierce Central High School,
the initial St..Lucie County
school to bring black and
white students under the
same roof.
But neither group went
gently.
"That was the beginning
of the trying times, which
lasted three or four years
after that," Mr. Williams
said.
Today, nearly four decades
later, Mr. Williams still


occupies a desk at the
school to which he has
remained strongly tied. A
college education and
military career followed his
graduation from Fort Pierce
Central in 1971 as part of
the first senior class.
But the boy who once
grudgingly attended the
school has spent more than
half his life there.
And after all the years, he
is once again present as the
school prepares to make
another big move - this
time to a new high-tech
campus about 1.5 miles
South on 25tm St.
Now age 54, Mr. Williams
teaches math at his old high
school. It's a job he's held for
27 years. His wife, Bonita
Williams, works at Central
High too as one of the
school's deans.
But the circumstances
surrounding the institution'
come into sharp focus for
Mr. Williams as the school
gets ready to move from the
site it has occupied on


Edwards Road since its
historic beginnings.
This time, though, there's
little in common with the
original relocation that saw
two classes of seniors move
to Fort Pierce Central in
their final year of high
school to create the new
establishment at 1101
Edwards Road.
Back then, Mr. Williams
and 522 other students
grudgingly moved from the
"white school," Dan
McCarthy High School, and
its counterpart for black
students, Lincoln Park

REVIEW

DCF pressing parents to remove
boys from military academy
In an on-going investigation that is preventing offi-
cials from discussing the details publicly, Florida's
Department of Children and Families has notified the
parents of the young men attending Port St. Lucie's Val-
ley Forge Victory Academy they should remove their
children from the academy, while DCF investigates
claims of abuse.
Commanding Officer of the academy, Col. Alan Weier-
man, has said DCF did not disclose the exact nature of
the abuse allegations. However, he believes it began
when academy officials temporarily put leg shackles on
a boy who attempted to run away from the facility, locat-
ed on Southwest Biltmore Street.
Valley Forge Military Academy is a 12-month'program
for troubled teens. Using a highly structured, military-
style program, the academy's stated purpose is to instill
in the young men a "Code of Conduct" that includes,
according to its Web site, loyalty, duty, respect, self sacri-
fice, honor, integrity and personal courage.

Local Habitat for Humanity leader resigns
In what is being termed by agency officials as a reor-
ganization of the administration, Al Rivett, executive
director of St. Lucie Habitat for Humanity since 2004,
submitted his resignation on April 24.
The county's Habitat for Humanity has been in exis-
tence since 1995. Since Mr. Rivett became executive
director, 14 homes have been built for low-income fami-
lies. An additional 15 houses were built between 1995
and 2004.
Another change for the organization is the cancella-
tion of this year's Black and White Mystery Gala, a
fundraising event that had been scheduled for May 3.
Tickets for that event were $150. Officials are planning
another event in its place, the specifics of which will be
discussed, at Habitat's next meeting.

Those facing foreclosure offered free
counseling thanks to amendment to act
On April 24, the House Financial Services Committee
unanimously adopted an amendment proposed by Con-
gressman Tim Mahoney (D-Palm Beach Gardens) that
will allow homeowners dealing with foreclosure to
receive counseling that could aid them in keeping their
homes.
The amendment is to the FHA Housing and Stabliza-
tion and Homeownership Retention Act of 2008, which
authorizes foreclosure counseling through a $200 mil-
lion grant program administered by the Neighborhood
Reinvestment Corp. The amendment gives priority to
those grantees that have an effective outreach plan in
place, including efforts to contact homeowners in per-
son. A recent Freddie Mac survey disclosed that 50 per-
cent of homeowners who aren't paying their mortgages

From page Al1
"My grades suffered, my
athletic opportunities went
away and my family life
went to hell in a hand bas-
ket," said Mr. Miller.
Despite his parents'
attempts to help him
through rehabilitation
facilities and halfway hous-
es, nothing worked.
"Drugs and alcohol took
me over," said Mr. Miller.
He quit school and left
home at 16, moved to Texas
and became homeless.
"1 had guns held to my


head from bums on the
street," he said.
Fortunately for him, he
eventually joined the Army
and turned his life around,
although his relationship
with his two brothers, once
so close they were called
"The Three Musketeers," is
strained to this day.
Mr. Miller speaks to
groups about those diffi-
cult days because he wants
to stop other youth from
making the same mistakes.
"I ruined relationships
and put my family through
a lot," he said. "We have a
real problem in St. Lucie
County and in Martin


County. It's not a rite' of
passage."
The statistics support his
message. In a 2006 survey
of students conducted by
the Florida Youth Sub-
stance Abuse Council:
*23 percent of middle
school students reported
having a drink in the last
30 days.
*10 percent of middle
school children are drunk
or high at school.
*12.3 percent of Flori-
da's middle school stu-
dents admit to binge
drinking (four or more
drinks in one setting),
compared to 8.4 percent
nationally.
*18 percent of high
school students show up
at school either high or
drunk.
Mr. Miller drove home
the point that many par-
ents fail to realize: Alcohol
is a drug.
"Why would you allow
your kid to do one drug
and not another?" he
asked, pointing out that if
parents heard 10 percent


of middle school children
were using cocaine, there
would be outrage.
Driving that message
home was a teen drama
group from Indian River
County's Substance Abuse
Council called "Deep
Impact," which put on
several skits regarding
youth and alcohol. Their
mission is to impact the
community with a drug-
free message.
The evening impressed
13-year-old Christian
Estriplet, a seventh-grade
student from Northport
Middle School, who
attended with his mother,
Marie Pierre-Canel.
"I learned there are a lot
of kids drinking. It made
me have a stronger feeling
of not wanting to drink,"
said Christian.
That is exactly the mes-
sage Mr. Miller wants con-
veyed.
"The attitude has to
change and it starts with
groups like this," he said.
"It starts with people who
care."


Racial
From page A3
Pierce into geographic
north and south, was
literally a border during that
time. The blacks stayed on
the north and the whites
stayed on the south. Central
High crossed that border,"
he said. "Now, that imagi-
nary border of Orange
Avenue has pretty much
been liquidated. But there
was a time that a black
family was not allowed to
live in Port St. Lucie, dnd a
white family was not
allowed to live in Fort
Pierce."
Unlike the original
relocation of students, this
year's move has met with
anticipation. The school is
set to relocate by August to
4011 South 25th St. Its new
$75 million-campus
features the latest teaching
technology, including
"smart top" computers that
take the place of chalk
boards.
"I'm thrilled that we'll


have the new facilities. It's
great for both teachers and
the students," said Barbara
Schwenger, who's taught at
Fort Pierce Central High
School for 21 years.
The school environment is
a far cry from its past, says
principal John Williams,
who is not related to the
math teacher.
Today, 1,400 students of
all races and cultural
backgrounds attend Fort
Pierce Central, he said.
By the time the school
moves to its new location,
that number will pass 1,650.
Enrollment has spiked by
more than 200 students,
thanks largely to new
"attractor" programs, such
as aerospace engineering

Virtually every car dealer Of educa

the price of cars he sells, a Sophistic

to nearly $1,000. This extra .
charge is programmed into .:a' 4 :

many states including California, but is still

wrong. I used to charge a dealer fee ($495)

Ms. Rivan said national
statistics show that rather
than attending college, those
who have grown up in the
foster care system are more
likely to become homeless,
teenage parents or impris-
oned.
"We are concerned about
pending (budget) cuts, but
we will do everything we can
to continue to provide this

Ms. Ritchie, for one, is

the agency, "I'm going to cry.

Sentimental Jewelry Stories?
Here are a couple of senti-
mental jewelry stories I
thought you would like before
Mother's Day.
Before we found out
Gramma was sick, my hus-
band bought my Gramma's
vintage 14KT White Gold
ICT Diamond Engagement
Ring Set. He gave her $1000
for it. Months later, my Papau
took me aside and told me
that Gramma had made him
promise to give us that
money. She had set it aside for
us. My Gramma passed away
just a couple of weeks before
my wedding day. We used the
money to purchase all the
flowers. So you see, she was
there. She was all around us.
My Grandma Mosier liked
to go to garage sales. She took
me to some once when I was
5, and gave me a quarter -
thinking I would get a toy or
book. I picked out a black
enameled horse brooch with
pearls. She tried to talk me
out of getting it, saying 'That's
too grown up -don't you want
something else?", but that was
what I really wanted, so, she
let me get it. I now own 40+
brooches, most from the 30's-
50's, and wear them every day
with everything from t-shirts
to dressy attire. I always think
of my Grandma (who passed
to the other side in 1984)
when I put therh on. Yes,
Grandma, that really is what I
wanted - thank you.

Do you have a sentimental
jewelry story you'd like to tell?
Please email it to me at
hawk@netgems.com and we'll try
to publish it in the future.

Praise for code enforcement

We live in the-Torino area of Port St. Lucie. At one time
there were five unoccupied homes on our street. As the
grass grew up on each of these homes it only took a simple
call to Code Enforcement and they took immediate action.
I didn't have to give my name or file any special report.
Thanks to Code Enforcement the absentee property own-
ers were held responsible for the maintenance of their
properties and our street did not look run down.

We shouldn't have to help Hatch

Why was the cocaine story at the top of the front page and
the escrow exec's trial on the bottom of the page on April
18?

What's wrong with the judge?

This is about Judge Ron who declared Ira hatch indigent.
He should be removed from the bench. It is so wrong.


Act like trash, pick up trash

Recently, several articles were written ranting about litter
problems. We have many people committing criminal acts
within our community. These people rob us, harm us, com-
mit property damage, take advantage of us and give our
community a bad name. I. think it's time to pay it back. The
misdemeanor offenders get litter projects along with jail
time. They wear a fluorescent T-shirt that states "I Love My
Community, and I'm Paying Back." Everyone will see them,
and if they don't learn a lesson, at least it will benefit us. The
message it speaks is "Act like trash then pick up trash." I
would much rather see our tax dollars pay for supervision
of a program like this that truly benefits us as a whole.

More regarding the food stamp program

We applied for food stamps on March 31, after my hus-
band lost his job. His employers bounced payroll checks in
March 2008 and he ended up not getting paid for a month
because the employer could not meet payroll.
My husband was supposed to receive a two- week unem-
ployment check from the State of Florida Unemployment
Office. He got his first one-week check in April, not a two-
week claim as stated.
We got a letter from the Food Stamp office on April 23,
stating that we make too much money for being both on
unemployment compensation. My husband gets $167 per
week and I get $186 per week, which averages less than $5
per hour.
We have a reasonable mortgage that increased from $550
per month to $750 per month due to a homeowners insur-
ance increase. We have no cell phones, a small vehicle pay-
ment and auto and basic household bills. We can barely
meet these basic needs.
We do not need cable to survive. We do not eat out, take
vacations or spend money on new luxury items. We've still
got an old T.V and freeze leftovers for tight financial weeks,
yet we were denied food stamps.
Thank you for not giving us temporary food assistance.
Thank goodness we pre-paid our unemployment wages
while working legally in Florida while illegal immigrants get
food stamps somehow and insurance for their kids.

Enough about the Pope

This is about all of the publicity the Pope is getting during
his visit to the U.S. He is not the leader of Christianity, Jesus is.

Leave the parks alone

Stop taking away all of the public parks. We should have a
say in what happens with our tax money.

We should revolt against the oil companies

For years we have been driving around and filling up our
tanks and didn't think about gas prices rising. The oil com-
panies are sticking it to us with the high prices. We should
have a gas-out day, when we just don't buy gas for the day.
We should stick it to them like they've been sticking it to us.
Why can't we do something about it? The middle class can't
even survive anymore, never -mind the people that have
been struggling for a long time now. We should all get

Cancer is still one of life's mysteries


almost missed an
important anniversary a
few weeks ago. I became
an eight-year survivor of
breast cancer, and there was
a time when it didn't seem
possible that a minute
would go by that I didn't
think about it. People told
me that it would change
from the elephant in the
living room that you
bumped into all the time, to
an end table that was there
that you didn't think about
too often.
A friend is going through
chemotherapy right now,
and I have tried to reassure
her that it will pass. It made
me think about my experi-
ences with the disease.
When I was being treated
in 2000 and had several
emergency operations, I
remember talking to one of
my doctors in despair at
everything that had gone
wrong. I had never smoked,
drank only an occasional
glass of wine and was
having so many complica-
tions. We didn't know then
that I had the autoimmune


disorder lupus, which
contributed to a lot of my
problems.
He pointed out that I was
invariably out of intensive
care and off oxygen within
24 hours, and he told me he
could show me patients still
needing intensive care days
later because their lungs
and hearts were not as
healthy as mine. He told me
this to remind me that while
there is no magic pill that
can prevent many diseases,
there are things we can do
to keep our bodies as
healthy as possible so that
we can fight illness if we
need to.
I have heard from people
who are diagnosed with
diseases like breast cancer,
as I was, that they can't
understand how this could
happen because they take
care of themselves.
Unfortunately, breast
cancer is not part of an
agreement that says you
can't get it if you run daily,
eat well and get plenty of
rest. Yes, there is a growing
body of evidence that doing


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well


those things may prevent
breast cancer and other
cancers, and you should do
them for that reason and to
prevent other diseases such
as heart disease and
diabetes.
What you shouldn't do is
assume that if you do them,
you have some sort of "Get
Out of Cancer Free" card.
Most cancers are random
acts and not hereditary; we
don't know why they occur,
and the truth is that at this
time early detection is still
the best weapon we have.


In the 1960s, DuPont had
a slogan, "Better Living
through Chemistry," which
was meant to indicate all
the wonderful advances
science was making and
going to make to enhance
the quality of life. We've
since learned that science
and chemistry don't always
get it right, that medicine
doesn't have all the answers,
and that sometimes.more
questions are raised.
We have realized that
there can be miracle drugs,
but there can also be
disasters like thalidomide.
We have come a long way
in treating many diseases,
but where we once thought
a cure for cancer was on the
horizon, we have come to
understand that cancer is
complex, that the different
types have different
treatments, and that even
the same type of cancer
may respond differently in
different people. There is no
easy answer.
Every month there are

A hard lesson is losing your hard drive


There is a big differ-
ence in supporting
individual computer
users and supporting small
business systems. Sure, I
see a lot of the same issues
- problems like slow
systems, virus-infected
machines, and people just
not knowing how to use
their computers - but
when it comes to trou-
bleshooting in the work
environment, there is
much more pressure.
You see, when someone
calls me because their
home computer is acting
up, they usually aren't
relying on their machine to
make a living. When a small
business calls me because
their network is acting up,
it can often mean that one
or more people are not able
to do their jobs until the
problem is resolved. That
can translate into massive
amounts of pressure
because what business
wants to have a bunch of

employees sitting around
unable to work because the
"computers are down?"
Recently, I had a call
from a small business that
had a hard drive go bad on
their server, and (as is
common) they had no
backup.
What was on this hard
drive? Well, all of their
accounting data, all of their
inter-office memos, all of
their Word and Excel
documents, etc., and boy
were they upset!
Now, one of the first
questions that pops into
your head may be "well,
why wasn't there a back-
up?" and although that is a
good question, it's one of
those things that is best left
unsaid until after the
problem is resolved. Asking
the business owner why he
didn't have a backup just
puts him on the defensive
and doesn't help at all in
the task at hand, which is
recovering the data.

The fact is they thought

checked on it since it was
set up, and it wasn't
working. Sure, it was set up
to run, but every night it
failed, and no one had
thought to check. But
again, dwelling on that fact
doesn't get us anywhere
closer to our goal and just
makes a tense situation
even tenser.

Just a few seconds into
the call I knew that this was
not going to be a "typical"
service call. I could hear it
in the voice; it was a bad
situation. And since this
was a hardware issue, I
knew I wasn't going to be
able to log in and fix it
remotely - I was going to
have to go on site, and I
really had no idea what I
was walking into (or
whether I was going to be
successful or not). And to
add to the pressure, pretty
much as soon as I walked
in the door, everyone
wanted to know "what
went wrong?" and "how
long is it going to take to
fix?" Both are legitimate
questions, but it does take
time to assess the situation
before I can answer
anything.
After an hour or so of
troubleshooting and
running different tests, I

Ten universal laws of abundance


The Spirit Guide column
last week, "The most
powerful law in the
universe," revealed how to
understand and use the
Laws of Attraction and
Manifestation to bring our
higher good to-us. This week
is actually a continuation of
how to use the enormous
power of the universe to help
us lead a life filled with all
the good things we desire
that keep us growing and
happy. Several books could
be written about this
formula and how to use it.
Here is the formula.
First, put the spiritual
universe first in your life.
The spirit world is the
source of life and creation.
Every created form begins
with an idea in spirit. An
idea must be transformed
into a seed of desire,
written down, affirmed out
loud and surrendered to the
universe.
The surrender creates

patience, trust and fa

beginning to grow in
physical world. This p
ple of cause-and-effe
same in a mother's w
flower in a garden ort
people, events or thin
wish to create in life t
make us happy.
Next, put yourself a


your family second. Raise
N- the value and standards of
your own life. You are
S+ \ important too, you know.
Thirdly, go to the world
and take care of the earthly
needs. This order of spirit,
family and world builds a
solid foundation that will
work miracles in life when
we get the priorities right.
y The greatest effect is that it
keeps us living in the light
with the spiritual blessings
ER of love, peace, health,
e prosperity, faith, joy and
creativity alive in our hearts
ith in and souls. This is No. 4.

Save money and the earth


Wth the current
changes involving
our evolving earth,
Earth Day has become an
important event in our
society. Earth Day is a day
we can look around and see
all the wonders that nature
has bestowed on us. It is
also a great time to think
about how we can protect
and beautify our environ-
ment.
This task can be as simple
as planting a single tree to
beautify your yard, planting
a colorful garden for all to
enjoy on your property, or
even donating your time to
a local garden club to help
beautify an area of your city
or town. .
The idea of Earth Day was
initiated in 1962 as a way to
make people aware of what
is going on in our environ-
ment. It all started with
President John E Kennedy


JOE ZELENAK
Garden Nook

in 1963, when he took a five-
day conservation tour of our
nation. The first official
Earth Day was on April 22,
1970. Since then, Earth Day
has blossomed into a
national celebration where
people initiate ideas that
can help make our environ-


ment more eye appealing
and a better place to live.
With all the hype on how
we are depleting our cypress
forests by the use of cypress
mulch, there are many
other natural alternatives
we can use that are func-
tional and will also save our
natural resources.
One thing we can use that
we all have plenty of is
natural grass clippings.
That's right; grass clippings
can make an excellent
mulching material that you
can use on almost all your
plants and flowers. You do
need to be sure, however,
that your turf has not been
recently treated with any
herbicides. The herbicides
may damage some of your
more tender plants.

HTNstill tops

in the industry


BY ANNE CHECKOSKY
Deputy Managing Editor
Hometown News was
once again named among
the elite in the community
newspaper industry at a
national conference last
week.
Hometown News gar-
nered second place in the
outstanding publication
category in the national
contest and won 12 awards
in 11 categories at the
Association of Free Com-
munity Newspapers
annual conference in Palm
Springs, Calif., last week.
HTN took first place in:
retail display advertising
on the Internet, grocery
ad, original writing
(column) and original
black and white photogra-
phy.
"These awards verify
what I've been saying for a
long time," said Steve
Erlanger, Hometown News
publisher and chief
operating officer.
"We did not go from not
being in existence five
years ago, to consistently
being ranked within the
top three community
newspapers in the coun-
try, without having the
absolute best team work-
ing their tails off to make it
happen.
"We have the best team
in the industry ... in the
world."
Each year, AFCP hosts an
annual awards ceremony
to recognize excellence in
advertising, editorial and
marketing. Nearly 3,000
entries were received this
year.
"Strong local.news
coverage and ad content.
Nice editorial layout. Easy-
to-read. Healthy classified.
A great free paper," the
judges wrote in the most
outstanding publication
category.
In addition, the paper
received the following
awards:
* First place, best pres-
entation of retail display


advertising on the Inter-
net, Hometown News
Online.
* Third place, best
presentation of news on
the Internet.
* First place, best origi-
nal black and white
photography used in a
news event, Vero Beach
edition.
* Second place, best
original black and white
photography used in a
feature or general interest
story, Sebastian edition.
* Second place, best
original color photography
used in a news event, Vero
Beach edition.
* First place, best origi-
nal writing (column) Port
St. Lucie edition.
* Second place, best

* Third place, best single

* Second place, best
single ad black and white,
Fort Pierce edition.
* First place, best black
and white grocery ad,
Jupiter edition.
* Second place, advertis-
ing promotion, New
Smyrna Beach edition.
In addition, Jim Kendall,
Hometown News chief
executive officer, was
named Publisher of the
Year during the confer-
ence. He just completed
his term as president of
AFCP.
"I feel blessed to work
with so many dedicated
and talented team mem-
bers who made this award
possible," said Mr.
Kendall.
In 2002, Hometown News
opened its doors in Fort
Pierce with three publica-
tions and a circulation of
65,000.
Today, HTN publishes 17
editions each week with a
combined circulation of
450,000.
"It is extremely satisfying
and encouraging to be
consistently recognized as
one of the top community
newspapers in the coun-
try," Mr. Erlanger said.

Spirit
From page A7
bless it for what it taught us
instead of cursing it or
judging it; forgive it if
needed; release it to make
room for new life; move on
and grow a new and better
life.
Seven is to know what we
want to grow and sow new
seeds. This is where journal-
ing is a mandatory need. An
idea in the package of the
mind has no physical form.
When we write it down, it's
like grounding electricity.
Then speaking it out loud
and asking the universe to
bring it to us is the same as
watering it.
Eight: it's better to feed the
spirit of an idea rather than
the physical form. Feed the
source, and it will feed the
physical idea like the roots in
a garden feed the physical
plant. When a person
around you does a good job,
tell them so, out loud. Say,
"Great job. Keep it up. You
have made me so happy."
Feed the spirit first, not the
flesh. This opens the heart
and makes them want to do
a better job. We all need to
feel happy in spirit.
Nine: Hang in there until
the idea grows, blooms and
bears fruit. Reap the harvest
for your efforts. If you were a
farmer, and you give up or
abandon the crop right
before the harvest, you
would go broke. It's more
important to finish a race,
rather than whether you win
or lose. If we don't finish our
projects, we will never win
anything in life.
Last, but not least, is the
proper way to distribute the
rewards of the above nine
steps when the harvest
happens.
A lot of soul searching and
study went into the next
statement. When you have
increased value, and more
abundance comes into your


life, give back to spirit first.
Feed the source. The
principle of tithing is to give
10 percent, and the universe
will bless us back with a 100'
percent return. This is the
law of ten-fold return at
work. Give to those who
have a need greater than
your own.
Next, save 10 percent of
your abundance for yourself,
family, future and safety
needs.
Third, pay your bills and
earthly obligations.
Fourth, spend on your
earthly compulsions.
This distribution method
will, as if by magic, make
your life more valuable. You
will also see that when you
take care of the spiritual side
first, the hunger for more
earthly toys will greatly
decrease. We begin to find
greater happiness in spirit,
rather than in the world.
You can do it. You were
born to live this kind of high-
quality life and enjoy the
respect, love, honor and
human dignity that go with
it.
As divine children of the
universe, we each were born
with this great heritage and
potential at birth. It's our
true destiny. The sweetest
news is that the best is yet to
come.

TRAVEL


Is it your turn to sail the world?


here are those who
spend their lives
dreaming of exotic
places to see and discover
and those who during their
lives choose to travel to such
places. Maybe it is your time
to see the world, or at the
least to get a taste of another
continent, its people and its
cultures.
Cruise lines that offer
"Around the World Voyages"
or "Grand Voyages" have
made a new surge of late,
appealing to both the senior
market as well as the "baby
boomers." For the most part,
it is the seniors who are
sailing - they have the time
(and the money) to leave
home for 100 days or longer.
Some parents are invest-
ing in these cruises -
choosing to sail with their
children to give them a view
of the world that cannot be
found in their school's
textbooks.
Grandparents are also
sailing with their grandchil-
dren, not only to spend
quality time with them, but
also to give an adventure
that they would not other-
wise have because their
parents cannot afford the
time off from work.

Either way, the kids can
learn up close about geogra-
phy, history, and the natural
sciences, as well as touching
upon various languages on a
world cruise.
After Cunard introduced
the first world cruise in 1922,
the idea of traveling the
world has grown in populari-
ty. Over the last quarter of a
century or so, many cruise
lines have joined the ranks
and offer world cruises with
the option of choosing to sail
the entire voyage or a
segment or two.
Most of the 2008 World
Cruises either have ended or
are about to. You would
think that the ships do not

"My goal is to ensure
that homeowners become
better educated about
their options so that we
can keep more families in
their homes," said Rep.
Mahoney in a statement.

Cop killer bill passes
Motivated by the rash
of Florida law enforce-
ment officers killed in the
line of duty in 2007, Rep.
William Snyder (R-Stu-
art) co-sponsored a bill
to create a minimum
mandatory life sentence
for those convicted of
attempted murder of a
law enforcement officer.
. On April 23, the bill,
*.which was also sponsored
by Sen. Paula Dockery (R-
Lakeland), unanimously
passed the Florida Legisla-


ture. The bill will next be
sent to Gov. Charlie Crist
for his signature.
Rep. Snyder, whose dis-
trict includes Martin
County and parts of St.
Lucie County, said the
community's safety and
security is compromised
whenever a law enforce-
ment officer is murdered.
"By increasing the
penalty for attempting to
murder an officer to a life
sentence, the Legislature
sends a clear-message that
trying to kill law enforce-
ment personnel will result
in the most severe penalty
possible," said Rep. Snyder
in a statement.

Man leaves without
paying for groceries
Andre Yvon Dinkines, 68,


of the 700 block of South-
east Celtic Street in Port St.
Lucie, loaded his cart with
$183 worth of groceries at
Publix in St. Lucie West,
then tried to walk out the
door without paying.
The store manager, the
store's loss prevention offi-
cer and a third employee
apprehended Mr. Dink-
ines, but not before he
became irate and tried to
get away.
When police arrived, Mr.
Dinkines gave officers
three names, all of which
were false.
Mr. Dinkines has been
charged with retail theft,
resisting an officer and
two counts of battery.

Garden
From page A7
layers. Make each of your
layers thin, and do not make
it too thick, as the mulch
will produce a smell. Apply
the next thin layer after the
initial layer has been
allowed to dry out. As the
clippings decompose, they
will produce a fertilizing
effect on your plants. The
clippings tend to add
nutrients back to the soil as
they decay and work their
way into the dirt.
Another great natural
mulching material is pine
needles. This material is not
suitable for all plants but it is
great for the majority of
plants we use in this part of
Florida. You can use pine
clippings on any acid loving
plants. This list can include
ixoria, hibiscus, bottlebrush,
azalea, gardenia, junipers,
and banana trees, along with
many other plants that
require a high acid content in
the soil.
Not only do many of these
natural remedies save


resources, they also save you
money. Doing large areas of
your yard with commercial
products can cost a fortune.
With the money you save on
mulching materials, you will
be able to purchase many
more colorful flowers!
Most of your favorite plants
that you have in your yard
can be easily propagated into
new plants without having to
buy new plants. Roses are a
great example of this.
In the spring, you can
choose rose cuttings that are
healthy and green, and they
will make good candidates for
cuttings.
Using a sharp knife, cut off
the soft tip of the cane, and
then cut it into 4- to 5-inch
pieces. Each piece should
have at least two nodes and


some leaves. Strip off the
bottom leaves to expose a
node, then plant the cutting
in moist soil, and keep it in
bright shade and high
humidity. You can use
containers covered with
plastic bags or set them in the
ground in the shade and
cover them with plastic jugs.
Either method should work
fine. Take several cuttings to
be sure you have success with
at least several. You are now
on your way to propagating
your own rose garden!

agreement the last three or
four years."
Under the agreement,
the hospitals provided
1,000 hours per school per
school year, which includ-
ed supplying athletic train-
ers and medical personnel
for sporting events.
The cost for each school
- Treasure Coast, Port St.
Lucie, St. Lucie West Cen-
tennial, Fort Pierce West-
wood, Fort Pierce Central
and Lincoln Park Academy
- for those services has
gone up considerably over
time.
"For a long period of
time, they donated it to
us," Stewart said. "We've
been putting funding into
it since around 2002. The
total cost this year was
$117,000.
"Next year, it would have
been $120,000."
Despite the contribu-


tions made by the school
district, the hospitals were
still losing money, approxi-
mately $200,000 per year.
"We did it as a commu-
nity service," Synetta Arm-
strong, Director of Market-
ing and Public Relations at
St. Lucie Medical Center,
said.
"We have decided to
focus on our core business
of patient care at the hos-
pitals. We did have a good
relationships with the
schools, but patient care is
our number one priority."
The contract runs
throughout the remainder
of the school year and
expires June 15. Stewart
said he will have ample
time in finding a new
provider for the fall sports
season and beyond and is
currently exploring other
alternatives.
"We are looking at the
options that are out there,"
Stewart said. "We have not
identified any particular


agency.
"We have until August. I.
feel pretty confident that
we can find replacement
services.
John Carroll, a private
high school, was also noti-
fifed that its current'
arrangement was ending.
"We have the same'
hookup through .Lawn-
wood," John Carroll athlet-
ic director Joe Paschal'
said. "It's unfortunate that'
it's going to happen.
"It's a service we would
like to keep if at all possi-
ble. It's been great for out
athletes and great for our
program.
"We've been able to treat
injuries, rehab quicker and
get kids back to playing
quicker.
"I've met briefly with our
principal and we're seeing
what our options are. The
program has been a bene-
fit to us.
"We'll see if we can pro-
vide the same service."

Compute
From page A6
was able to determine that
the drive was still intact (it
wasn't making that horrible
"click" that hard drives often
make when they die), and
all of the data was still .
visible on the drive; but I
wasn't promising anything
yet! Sure it was a good sign
that I could see the data on
the drive, but actually
getting to the data was
proving to be tricky. And it .


doesn't help when someone
comes in and reminds me
every 20 minutes or so how
urgent the situation is.
But after a while and
throwing everything I had at
the problem, I was finally
able to recover the data off
the bad drive and re-image
it onto a new one. Mission
accomplished!
So, what is the moral of
the story? Well, the lesson I
learned (and was able to
convey this to the business
owner after the data was
recovered) was to never


assume that your backup
scheme is working properly.
Check it every now and
again just to make sure, and
have some type of disaster
recovery plan in place
ahead of time. Hard drives
don't last forever, and a
good plan can eliminate a
lot of anxiety when disaster
does happen.

ment and residents not seeing them doing
their job:
Look up and down U.S. 1, they are there
making life difficult for small business own-

What happened to the gas tax?
I thought the tax on gas was temporary.
When are they going to take the tax off? And
what are they doing with all the gas in reserve?
When are we going to start using that?

Slow down, save gas
One way to save gasoline is to slow down.

From page A6
magazine articles that
trumpet a particular food or
supplement that will
absolutely prevent cancer.
The fact is that science is
discovering that many
nutrients are protective and
that a well-balanced, plant-
based diet is the best for
good health. However, there
is no guarantee that anyone


can make that you will not
get sick.
That's why it's so impor-
tant to have tests as recom-
mended by your doctor and
groups such as the American
Cancer Society. Don't
assume that you can protect
yourself against everything.
As the doctor told me long
ago, you can take care of


yourself and be as healthy as
you can, but there are no
magic cures. Not yet.

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
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
to target specific areas with accuracy and control like never
before possible.
Minimal Downtime: Most patents return to normal activities
within 48 hours.

DINI- ENTERTAINMENT


'Flaming Idiots' will light up Fort Pierce


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer


. What happens when two not-very
bright former postal workers buy a
restaurant that isn't doing very well?
When they discover that another
restaurant across town had a mob hit
that increased business, they decide to
see if that works for them. The prob-
lem is tlat they really don't want to kill
anyone. There are mix-ups, misunder-
standings, and a dead body that's not
really dead. In the hands of playwright
Tom Rooney, it becomes the farce
"Flaming Idiots."
Jan Buzzeo, the director, talked
about the show and about how much
fun the cast is having rehearsing it.
"I saw it in community theater in
Minnesota," she said. "I said that we
had to do this show. Then, when we
did the read-through after I cast it, it
took over 3 hours, because we were
laughing so hard. It's got a frantic pace,
slamming doors and misunderstand-
ings. It's a funny, funny show."
The cast, which includes John
Procino andWayne Richmond as Phil
and Carl, the former postal workers;
Joe Peduto as Eugene, the
waiter/actor; Bert Suarez as Ernesto,
the busboy; Mercedes Richmond as
Bernadette, the chef; Carole Wood as
Jayne, the intrepid reporter; Slade
Walter as Officer Task, the bumbling
policeman; and Jerry Badiner as Louie,
the retired hitman, is a source of pride
for the director.
"John Procino andWayne Richmond
are seasoned actors," she said. "John is
getting back on the Pineapple stage.
His health is better, and I told him
'You've gotta get back.' Wayne Rich-
mond was in 'Dearly Departed' and
directed 'Opal's Million Dollar Duck.'
Jerry Badiner, who plays the hitman,

Week of 05-02-2008
Aries-March 2-April 19
The main reasons for your success are hard
work and devotion to duties. Whether it is with
family, work or friends, you always sense what
needs to be done. You remain committed,
calm and yet passionate. You are highly
deserving of the rewards that come your way.
Taurus-April 20-May 20
It's your time of the year to shine. With the
Sun, Mercury and Venus in Taurus, you have
booster rockets on your soul. You have a spiri-
tual edge right now. It's the perfect time to
launch new projects. Just be sure to finish up
old ones as well. Energy doesn't get much bet-
ter than this.

The cast of the Tom Rooney comedy 'Flaming Idiots' will perform at the
Pineapple Theatre in Fort Pierce from May 15-June 1.


was in 'Love Letters' this past season.
Mercedes Richmond, who plays the
deaf mute cook, is new to the stage,
although she has directed, and Carol
Wood, who plays the reporter, Jayne
Fryman, has done films and played
'Sugar' last year. She's a wonderful
actress.
"I worked with Slade Walker last
year. The only newcomers are Joe
Peduto, from Port St. Lucie, who plays
Eugene, the actor/waiter, and Bert
Suarez, fromVero Beach, who plays
Ernesto, the busboy. They are both
wonderful."
As with so many directors, Ms.
Buzzeo appeared on stage and
behind-the-scenes before turning to
directing. She recently appeared in
"The Cemetery Club" as Doris at the


Barn Theater.
"I've been in theater 25 years and
more," she said. "I love the smell of the
theater and all aspects of it, from the
sound and lighting to stage managing.
Last year I tried directing. It is wonder-
ful to see a story from the script and
work for five-six weeks. You take a raw
script and see it come to life. You
become a family. Opening night is like
seeing the kids off to school. You don't
want to let go."
"Flaming Idiots"will be showingat
the Pineapple Playhouse, 700W.
Weatherbee Road, Fort Pierce, from
May 15-June 1. Performances are
Thursday-Saturday at 8 p.m. and
Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15; call

Gemini-May 21-June 21
Stay calm. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
You have emerged through the toughest times
intact. The next few months will be like a new
beginning bringing positive results for all the
efforts recently made. Stay calm under pressure
and continue to reap the blessings.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
Attention to details continues to bring desired
results. Your good heart continues to guide you.
Your sacred values continue to increase. Do
' whatever it takes to keep the top priorities pro-
gressing. Life, love and family are among them.
No one is better at it than you.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
There are few challenges you aren't up to han-
dling because your visions guide you. You see
the outcome before it happens. You make wise
decisions. This approach has helped in the past,
and it will continue to help you in the future.
What a gift.

Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Foresight and determination are just two of your
many gifts. If it doesn't feel right, you generally

Ha Mth a t th th a th
Happy Mother's Day to the mother of all mothers


Hello, smart shoppers.
For a Mother's Day special,
give the gift that keeps on
giving, an autographed copy
of my cookbook. See end of
column for ordering instruc-
tions.
Sunday, May 11, is Mother's
Day, and this week's column
is dedicated to one of God's
most special people: Mothers!
Be sure to make her day
special.
For all you men out there: If
you can't cook, you can still
grill a steak, roll potatoes in
foil and put them on the grill
or bake them in the oven.
Packaged salad greens are
available in your supermarket
ready for serving; just buy a
great dressing and top it off
with a store-bought cake. We
may not be talking low-fat
here, but we are talking
something special.
This Mother's Day columri
will contain no lecture; you
know how I feel and what I
think you should do; you've
sure read it enough.
This week, I will talk about
the mother of all mothers: my
mom, Kitty Camerino. She is
99 years old and has the
hardest head of anyone I
know. She's stubborn and
thinks she's just as capable as
she was 50 years ago.
I am writing this column on
April 16, so by the time you
read it, her face will no longer
be purple.
Got your attention yet?
On Friday, April 11, she did
what she has always done no
matter how many times my
late husband and I warned
her not to. At 6:30 a.m., she
went out to get the newspa-
per when the sun had barely
risen.
We tell her, "You could fall,
or dogs may be loose," but
nothing worked. Friday was
the day. She fell on her face at


the bottom of my long.
driveway. Not a soul was
around, and I was still
sleeping.
At 7:15 a.m., Iwas awak-
ened by her screams, "Arlene,
I fell!" I jumped out of bed
and ran to the living room to
find her with blood pouring
down her face and dripping
off her nose. There was a
bump the size of a goose egg
over her left eyebrow, and her
sweater, robe and nightgown
were covered with blood. A
triangle-shaped gash in her
forehead was bleeding
profusely. I almost passed out.
I ran like a crazy person to
grab towels, icepack and the
phone, realizing this was
more than a band-aid
situation.
Paramedics arrived and
took her to the hospital with
all the pertinent information.
I had to get dressed and get
to the hospital, but first I had
to compose myself before I
passed out. Like many of you,
I'm amazing in a crisis but
afterward I fall apart.
Half in shock with my heart
pounding wildly, I sat for a
few minutes, sipped some
coffee and composed myself.
Then, as fast as possible, I cat-


ARLENE BORG
Romancing the Stove
with the Grammy Guru

washed, got dressed, grabbed
clean clothes for her and
battled the morning rush-
hour traffic.
By the time I arrived, she
had had a full body X-ray and
a CAT scan. Her forehead was
stitched, and they were taking
her to X-ray her neck. No
fractured skull, no concussion
and no broken bones! Did I
say she had a hard head?
I got her home, fed her
lunch, which she gobbled in a
flash, and put her to bed.
A forehead wound bleeds
profusely, and the blood was
dripping internally, blacken-


ing her eyes, cheeks, etc.
She lost her balance picking
up this paper and fell fore-
head first. For some reason,
Mom never learned to put out
her hands to break a fall. Is
this the first time? Oh, no -
20 years ago she got 68
stitches in her forehead.
When she falls, she can't get
up.
Screaming for help to no
avail, she crawled.
Looking at the trail of blood
up the driveway, the bloody
handprints on the car
bumper as she desperately
tried to lift herself up, and the
continuing blood trail the
long way around the car and
finally to the door, which she
was able to push in, brought
tears to my eyes. She crawled
the entire way, lifting her
knees high enough so they
were bruised but not cut. She
feels broken, and the bruises
are slowly traveling down her
face. Unless you were
forewarned, seeing her would
cause you to gasp.
Hopefully by Mother's Day,
she will be healed. Please, no
cards; then she will know I
told.
Honor your mothers and
the special ladies in your life.


I am available for talks
from south Vero to Hobe
Sound. Call (772) 465-5656
or (800) 823-0466.

BY RITA HART
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE - The
moment you walk into the
lobby of Creative Catering,
you recognize this place is
something special.
Richly appointed in warm
golds and browns, it wel-
comes you with the atmos-
phere of the finest hotels.
Located next to Springhill
Suites in St. Lucie West, Cre-
ative Catering, is a family-
owned business that opened
on Jan. 1, 2007. The owners
are Steve and Nancy Huszar
and their three adult chil-
dren, Kristy, Karyn and
Andrew.
The family hails from New
Jersey, where Nancy spent 30


years in the restaurant busi-
ness and Steve retired from
the military and as a chief of
polite.
After Karyn and Andrew
graduated from Florida
Atlantic University, their par-
ents moved to Florida as well,
opening up the West End Grill
in St. Lucie West.
The Huszar family was
approached by SpringHill
Suites to provide the hotel's
catering services. Shortly
thereafter, they sold the West
End Grill and opened Cre-
ative Catering.
In the short time they have
been in operation, they are
already booked with on- and
off-site catering jobs into
2009.
Andrew is the chef for the
catering services, Karyn is the
event planner and Kristy, a
marketing executive who
remains in New Jersey, han-
dles the marketing for the
catering business.
Mrs. Huszar said Creative
Catering is busy with off-site
services. However, 85 percent
of their events are on-site in
their banquet room, a 1,600-
sqare-foot facility that can
accommodate up to 120 peo-
ple for large events or 175
people for business meetings.
The room can also be parti-
tioned into two to four small-
er rooms, all with sound-
proof walls.
Creative Catering can also
accommodate outdoor

Announcements
of new season,
auditions, camp
dates sought

If your school or commu-
nity theater has selected its
shows or set audition dates
for the 2008-2009 season,.
let everyone know. Please
include the names of the
shows, show dates, venue,
how to obtain tickets, ticket
prices and contact informa-
tion. Send it to
shelley55@bellsouth.net. If
we haven't run your arts
summer camp information
yet, send that, too.
Many times this season,
I've gotten information


about a terrific event a week
or even a few days before it
happens. We're a weekly
paper and we work a week
ahead, and because it's hard
to get interviews with
people lined up, I usually
schedule features a month
in advance. The Scene
section has a little more
leeway. As soon as you
know about your event,
make a note to yourself to
send along the details. I
especially need to know the
date, the location, who is
sponsoring it, where it is,
and how much it costs.
Then I can call and get
details. I can't promise
feature stories, but at least
you can be in the listings
and people can know about
your event.

"We had a Middle Eastern
party last week. We are cus-

Last New Year's Eve, Cre-

over so well, they plan on
doing it again this year.
The family prides itself on
attention to detail and pro-

'Flat Stanley' brings a


children's favorite to life


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertaininent writer
Children have been fol-
lowing* the adventures of
Stanley Lambchop, the little
boy who finds himself flat as
a pancake and mails him-
self around the world, since
he first appeared in 1964.
The children's books by
Jeff Brown have inspired
school kids from all
around the world to learn
about other cultures by
mailing Flat Stanleys
around the world in an
effort known as The Flat
Stanley Project.
The popular books have
previously been adapted
into a musical with five
adult actors and now
StarStruck Performing Arts
Center has been given the
opportunity by iTheatrics
in New York to perform the
premier pilot of "The
Musical Adventures of Flat
Stanley," with a large cast
of kids from ages 8-13.
They'll present the show


so


at the Lyric Theatre in two
performances on May
11.Tim McDonald of iThe-
atrics, the show's creator,
and Jennifer Jones of
StarStruck, the show's
director, spoke about what
a rewarding project it has
been.
"I received a Flat Stanley
(in the mail) from my god-
son as part of the Flat
Stanley project," Mr.
McDonald said. "Every
time I pulled out Flat Stan-
ley (from the envelope), it
was like I pulled out Elvis.
Everyone wanted to take
pictures with it. I realized
that Flat Stanley breaks
geographic and cultural
barriers and I thought,
'wouldn't this make a good
musical?'
"I met the StarStruck
folks at a junior theater
festival in 2005 and was
very impressed with their
energy. I knew they were
doing theater with young
people for all the right rea-
sons, to enrich young peo-
ple's lives. They're at a level
where they can handle
something news and take
changes. They did a fantas-
tic job with 'Rent' and
"Sweeney Todd.' This is a
project,close to our hearts
and it was a no-brainer."
Ms. Jones is proud to
have been selected to per-
form the pilot and is proud
of her cast as well, which
includes Kevin Paul as


Stanley.
Other cast members are
Bailey Madison, Landry
Bearden, Cassandra
Salmieri, Kelly Capen,
Dakota Geng, Danielle
Conley, Kim Dodt, Savan-
na DuBois, Alexandra
Fedele, Samantha Fedele,
Courtney Foster, Amelia
Gil, Jessica Gray, Megan
Mufson, Karley Justice and
Amanda Tipaldo.
Also performing are
Kendall Krueger, Loretta
Waldrop, Rachel Ram,
Andrew Rodgers, Katie
Rodgers, Sydney Sabol,
Dallas Williams, Thomas
Morrison, Lucia Izzolo,
Michael Werder, Samantha
Wodraska, Madeline Bean
and Nathanael Bean.
Ms. Jones has praise for
Kimberley Dodt, who plays
the postal. worker who
introduces Stanley to his
next location and Katie
Rodgers, who plays a Hol-
lywood agent, and admits
that directing her son,
Kevin, a student at Hidden
Oaks Middle School, in the
title role is a challenge.
"It's wonderful because
he is incredibly talented,"
she said. "Part of his talent
is God-given, and that's
true for all the children. He
has been around theater
his entire life; being here
with us at rehearsals, he's
seen the grueling work
that goes into creating
characters. I'm very hard


on him, on both my chil-
dren. To get a part, they
have to be outstanding
because I'd never want
anyone to think they got it
for the virong reason.
Other people in the pro-
duction team, like the cho-
reographer and the stage
manager have to think
they deserve the part."
For Ms. Jones, who
recently lost her mother,
working with kids has spe-
cial benefits.
"This is so much fun,"
she said. "They're making
me smile. It's a family-
friendly show for kids and
grandparents. There'll be
two shows on Mother's
Day and it's a great way to
celebrate the day."
Mr. McDonald of iThe-
atrics, who will be attend-
ing the 3 p.m. show, echoes
that thought.
"The ultimate thing that
Stanley learns is that. it's
fun to do amazing things,
but it's no fun if your fami-
ly is not there to share it,"
he says. "It's perfect for
Mother's Day."
StarStruck Performing
Arts Center presents the
world premier pilot of "The
Musical Adventures of Flat
Stanley" at the Lyric The-
atre, 59 S.W. Flagler Ave.,
Stuart, on May 11 at 3 and
7 p.m. Tickets are $21; call
the box office at (772) 286-

RELIGION


Bible's main message: The Gospel


The word "gospel"
comes from two Anglo-
Saxon words: "God
(meaning "good"), and
"spell" (meaning "tidings.")
This is translated as "Good-
Tidings" or "Good News."
The Gospels of Matthew,
Mark, and Luke are known
as the "synoptic gospels"
because they present a
synopsis of Christ's life. The
word "synopsis" is from a
Greek word meaning "a
collective view."
The synoptic gospels share
a collective (common) view
and are striking in their
similarities, but uniquely
different in the way they
narrate the life and ministry
of Christ in Galilee.
John's gospel is not
included in the synoptic
gospels, but stands in a class
by itself, telling of Christ's life
and ministry in Judea. In the
time of Christ, Judea denot-
ed the southernmost part of
the three divisions of
Palestine. The other two
divisions were Galilee and
Samaria.
The synoptic gospels tell
of Christ's miracles, para-
bles, and sermons to the
multitudes. They portray
Christ in action..John
presents the deeper and
more abstract discourses of
Christ, and His conversa-
tions, prayers, meditation,
and communion.
In Isaiah 7:14b, the
prophet Isaiah looked down
the corridors of time and
predicted the coming of
Christ. He wrote, "Behold, a
virgin shall conceive, and
bear a son and shall call his
name Emmanuel" (God with
us).
Every Old Testament
prophet assured God's
chosen people that the
Messiah would come and be
the King of the Jews.
In the New Testament, the
Gospels present Jesus in our
midst. In John 1:14, John
says, "The Word [meaning
Jesus] was made flesh and
dwelt among us. God's desire
to reveal His nature of love to
mankind was demonstrated
when He sent His Son, Jesus
Christ, wrapped in human
flesh to live with us."
Jesus is called "the word"
because "words" reveal. God
revealed who He is by
sending His Son, "the living
word" to planet Earth. God
also reveals who He is in His
"written word," and through
His "prophetic word."
When the Old Testament
concluded, there was a
period of 400 years when
God did not speak to
mankind. But Matthew
bridged the chasm of silence
with the inspired writing of

the book of Matthew.
God highlighted the
Gospels in the Old Testa-
ment by speaking through
Prophets. After the gospels
had been written, God
referred back to them again
by inspiring the writers of
the 21 Epistles.
The Epistles are books
(letters) of the New Testa-
ment written by Peter, Paul,
John and Jude to the
Romans, the Corinthians,
the Galatians and others.
The gospels are the primary
source of God's revelation to
mankind. The inspired
writers of the Bible shine
God's divine spotlight upon
them.
Why did four individual
Gospel writers tell the same
basic story of the life and
ministry of Christ?
Wouldn't one account of
the Gospel story be suffi-
cient?
Each Gospel writer
addresses a different group
of people, and each one
portrays Christ in a unique
way to the people he writes
to. On another level, the
"good news" is for us today.
Matthew, a Jew, writes the
story of the life and ministry
of Jesus on Earth to his own
people, the Jews. The Jews
were well versed in Old
Testament prophecy and
ancestry. He includes the
genealogy of Jesus to show
that Jesus is the predicted


Messiah. Matthew is quali-
fied to reach his people
because he knows their
culture and customs.
Mark writes to the
Romans, the "super power"
of the world at that time. The
Romans were not interested
in genealogy and had no
interest in fulfilled prophecy.
So Mark omits genealogy in
his narrative and goes
directly to the miraculous
action sequences of the life
and ministry of Christ.
Luke, a Greek doctor,
writes to his own country-
men, the Greeks. As a
learned physician, he
commanded their respect.
They were lovers of beauty,
poetry and culture. There-
fore, the gospel according to
Luke contains beautiful
poetic passages.
Finally, John writes to "all
people," that they might
believe that Jesus is the
Christ, the Son of God.
There's much more to
discover about the Gospel.
When you are ready to
respond to the "good news"
of the Gospel and receive
Christ as your personal
savior, call me and I will
answer your questions and
pray with you.
May God richly bless and
prosper you, your family and
loved ones, with every
spiritual and material
blessing in the heavenly
realm. I'll see you, along with
many of my column readers
Sunday, at Heart ofWorship.
Pastor 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 Community
Center, 2195 Airoso Blvd.,
across from City Hall.

Get good gifts for your golfing mom or dad


Tou are almost out of
time! Mother's Day is
just around the
corner, and Father's Day is
a quick left after that.
Most golfers are difficult
to buy presents for. Toss in
the fact that it's mom or
dad and things can get
quite confusing. However,
gifts are available for the
moms and dads in our
lives, and it doesn't have to
be a tie or oven mitts with
golf balls on it.
Every golfer could
benefit from knowing the
yardage to the pin or to a
hazard. Leupold, America's
Optic Authority
(www.leupold.com), just
introduced a pair of GX
Rangefinders. Both units
feature PinHunter tech-
nology to find the pin
against any background.
It's like having your own
caddie giving you yardages

to everything on the hole.
These units are also legal
for everyday and tourna-
ment play.
How would that golfer in
your life like his or her
own swing coach? The new
ShotWatch (www.shot-
watch.com) makes this
possible. The device fits on
your wrist, just like your
regular timepiece, and
uses advanced circuitry
guided by servo-motors
and sensors to give you
instant feedback when you
deviate from your ideal
grip pressure, speed, and
tempo. The feedback aids
muscle memory and helps
keep you in a consistent
swing groove.
Golfers are always in
need of replacing their
grips. Most grips wear out
within a season or so and
should be replaced.
Instead of those boring,
over-the-counter grips,
why not get personalized
ones for that special golfer?
SMT Golf, (888) 693-
4001, offers nearly a dozen
different grips, each of
which can be imprinted
with the name or logo you
desire. You can order as
many or as few as you
wish, and there is never an
artwork or setup charge.
It's a great way to person-
alize their clubs for them!
Every golfer has his or
her own personality. Most
of us use head covers on
our clubs to protect them
from the abuse of riding
around in a cart or being
carried along. By using a
head cover resembling the
golfer's favorite animal,
team or college, they not
only protect their invest-
ment but show a little
personality as well.
Being outside in the sun
playing golf can ruin your
eyes. Rudy Project
(www. rudyprojectusa. com)
offers six different sun-

Golf columnist

glass frames in a wide
variety of colors and sizes
to match anyone's style.
The entire line features
frames without a lower rim
on the glass, eliminating
the usual visual distrac-
tion.
The company's Golf 100
lens was tailored to
accommodate for grass
reflecting only a low
amount of light, while
controlling the low-level
blue and middle-range
light. The result is a pair of
sunglasses that helps show
the subtle breaks on
greens and allows you to
better see the depth of
field on all golf shots.
The ImpactX Pho-
tocromic lens offers all the
assets of the Golf 100
optics but with pho-
tochromic properties. In
seconds, the lens can
adjust to any light condi-
tion, transmitting 13 to 38
percent of the available
light to the eye.
We'd all love to improve
our game. Sklz Golf
(www.sklz.com) has
developed an entire line of
training aids for golfers.
The Rick Smith signature
series features products
designed specifically to
increase your distance and
accuracy and perfect and
hone your putting stroke.
The newest product, the


Gyro Swing, introduced at
last year's "Fore Inventors
Only" show on the Golf
Channel, is the only
training aid that truly
gives golfers the "feel" of
an ideal swing, forcing
them to stay on the correct
plane with a perfectly
timed release.
Most ladies dislike
taking their purse with
them to the course. Now,
they can be fashionably
unencumbered on the golf
course. The new cabretta
leather zippered pouch
from Fairway Skins
Company (www.fair-
wayskins.com) is small and
elegant, just 4-inches-by-
five-inches, for practical
use during a round. Each
pouch, with an easy
zipper, features a floral
image and contrasting-
color lining. The web loop
with split ring on the side
enables the flower to hang
vertically from a golf bag.
It's the perfect size for
those few small items that
you need to take with you.
' Finally, if all you need is
a small trinket to complete
your gift, how about a
divot tool or ball marker?
You can always find these
with a large selection of
colleges, professional
sports teams, even flowers
or cute sayings to match
the golfer's personality.
Golf Magazine subscrip-
tions can be had at low
prices, and the gift keeps
coming every month or
sometimes every week.
Just remember, it's
always the thought that
counts!

enthusiast for 30 years. He

"Behind the storm the sun
stills shines" is an old,
familiar adage. What it
means is that no matter
what has happened, there
is always hope for a better
tomorrow. You have sur-
vived the storms. You are
now stronger, wiser and
resilient. If anyone can sur-
vive, it is you. Thanks for
inspiring us.

Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
You seem to have a silver
lining behind every cloud.
In the face of every chal-
lenge, things always turn
around to your advantage.
You are very sensitive to
the ebb and flow of cur-
rent trends. You know how
to keep your head above
water. You have such great
heart and inner strength.

Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
Your instincts keep you on
the happy side of life. You
have gratitude for all the
blessings. You have won-
derful family values, good


friends and excellent work
habits. The universe is your
home. You live each day
like it is a special holiday.
No one's life gets any bet-
ter than this.
