Victory Forge Academy denies abuse allegations


BY RITA HART
Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE - The
president of Victory Forge
Military Academy, Col.
Alan Weierman, continues
to refute all allegations of
abuse leveled by the Flori-
da Department of Chil-
dren and Families.
Further, Col. Weierman
said the parents of acade-

way DCF is handling the
abuse investigation.

FCAT


exams

Staff writer
St. Lucie County stu-
dents did their schools
proud in the writing por-
tion of the Florida Com-
prehensive Assessment
Test of FCAT, officials said.
And in some cases, the
performance was a strong
improvement on earlier
years', said St. Lucie Coun-
ty schools spokeswoman
Janice Karst.
"There were schools with
more than 30 percentage
points gains," she said.
In 26 of the 37 schools
where students took the
writing portion of the
FCAT, 90 percent had
scores of 3.5 or better out
of 6.0.
And for many, the per-
formance was a strong
improvement on previous
years, county data show.
At Lakewood Park Ele-
mentary School, for
instance, 87 percent of the
fourth-grade students
who took the test scored
3.5 or higher this year.
That's 17 percentage
points higher than last
year, when about 70 per-
cent reached that score.

St. Lucie, is a live-in aca-
demic school that uses
military- style regulations
to turn around the lives of
troubled teens.
Late last month, howev-
er, DCF officials began
notifying parents of stu-
dents at the military acad-
emy to remove their chil-
dren, while DCF
investigated allegations of
abuse.
Col. Weierman said DCF
investigators have since
advised him the investiga-
*tion began when academy,
officials temporarily put


leg shackles on a boy who
attempted to run away
from the facility, and
because the cadets were
forced to eat food they
didn't like.
"I was told by a DCF
worker and her supervisor
that the allegation was
cruel and unusual punish-
ment," said Col. Weier-
man. "I said, 'Are you talk-
ing about the shackles?'
and she said the cadets
were also made to eat
things they don't like, like
vegetables."
Col. Weierman said the


cadets are fed what the
academy calls "stuff," a
mixture of several vegeta-
bles that 'changes from
day to day. He said this
same issue came up in
prior investigations by the
Port St. Lucie Police
Department and DCF
about 10 months ago.
"They had specific alle-
gations, spoke with a ran-
dom sampling of boys and
closed the case," he said.
"It was about the 'stuff'
then, too. One day it was a
mixture of sauerkraut,
chickpeas, oregano, olive

PORT ST. LUCIE - For
those interested in
immortalizing a loved one,
Port St. Lucie's Civic Cen-
ter might just be the place:;
As the city moves closer
to the Civic Center's grand
opening in December,
administrators have
announced an opportuni-
ty for citizens to become
benefactors of the
100,000-square-foot facili-
ty, or to have a large por-
tion of the center named
for themselves or some-
one else.
"The benefactor pro-
gram is an opportunity for
a one-time donation and
the individual or organiza,-
tion can be named on a
large plaque at different
levels," said Tonya Taylor,
Civic Center Administra-
tor. "We will have one
plaque, with smaller name
plates varying in size,
depending on the amount
given. It's perpetual. Five
years from now, people
could still give donations

Staff writer
PORT ST. LUCIE -
Nurses dedicate them-
selves to caring for others.
For at least one week out
of the year, however,
someone is taking care of
them.
National Nurses Week is
celebrated each year from
May 6 through May 12, the
birthdate of Florence
Nightingale, the 19th cen-
tury nurse credited as the
founder of nursing as a
trained profession.
For the past three years
St. Lucie Medical Center
has honored its nursing
staff in creative ways, and
this year is no different.
"It's all about them and


what they do every day,"
said Tabetha Ruple, a
ntirse manager who led
the committee that
planned the week's events.
Ms. Ruple said St. Lucie
Medical Center has cele-
brated Nurse's Week in
very unique ways for each
of the past three years.
"Other places might give
a trinket," she said. "What
we do is very unusual. I
still hear comments about
what we did three years
ago."
On May 6, nurses were
treated to a program enti-
tled "Self awareness ...

began with a 7:30 a.m.

Moms of the Treasure Coast reach


out to community and each other


BY RITA HART
Staff writer

Mother's Day was cele-
brated less than a week ago,
but a group of Treasure
Coast moms have been
busy taking care of more
than just their own families.
Moms of the Treasure
Coast was formed in
September.
"Our group is really a great
way not only for our
children to get out and meet
other kids but for moms to
socialize," said Jill Provino-
Nurewitz, the group's
founder. "Once or twice a


ROBOTS FOR DENTAL TRAINING
Q: Is it true that dentist may soon train on robots that can say "ouch?"
A: It is indeed true. At a major robotics convention last November in Tokyo, Japan showed off a
number of advanced models, including a humanoid robot fitted with a mouthful of replica teeth
for dentistry students to work on. "Ow, that hurt!" a female robot complained after a young
dentist drilled too close to a robotic "nerve." When the dentist eased off, the robot said, "Now,
I'm OK."
Dentistry, like all fields of human endeavor, countries to incorporate cutting-edge technology and
knowledge into its practice. The Japanese robot even has a name: Simroid, for "simulator humanoid." Simroid has
a realistic looking face, with eyes, nose and mouth. Sensors are embedded in the teeth to resemble nerves,
triggering the "ouch" reflex when a student is inaccurate or heavy-handed. Simroid is the result of collaboration
between the doctors at Nippon Dental University in Tokyo and technicians at Kokoro Company.
Simroid is still undergoing refinement. Planned next is function that will let students inject anesthetic into robotic
gums. Dentists around the world are working on techniques and tools that will make dentistry an even more
effective discipline in the future.

week we might go to
someone's house for a play
date, but most of the time
we are out visiting places
that are free of charge, like
parks and sanctuaries."
It didn't take long, howev-
er, for the group of mothers
to decide they wanted to
help others in the commu-
nity with children.
Mrs. Provino-Nurewitz
Said they learned of a
homeless shelter in Stuart
known as Mothers and
Infants Striving for Success.
"M.I.S.S. provides transi-
tional housing," said Krista
Cromwell, outreach coordi-
nator for the shelter. "We are
trying to break the cycle of
homelessness. We want
them to take care of their
children."
The shelter provides
housing for mothers and
children for six months to
two years. The mothers are
required to work full-time
and attend school.
"We help them find a job
and enroll in school," said
Ms. Cromwell. "We offer
them the resources to
succeed."
Ms. Cromwell said women
with children are the fastest
growing homeless popula-
tion in America.
"In Martin County alone,
we have 140 families on the


waiting list to get in the new
shelter," she said.
M.I.S.S. currently has a
facility in the Golden Gate
community in Martin
County that houses'eight
families.
A second facility, called
Butterfly Gardens, is located
on Cove Road in Stuart and
is expected to open in three
months. Butterfly Gardens
will house 40 families.
In addition, ground has
been broken for a shelter in
Port St. Lucie that will be
named Sammy's Landing.
Located at Port St. Lucie
Boulevard and Collier
Avenue, the shelter will
house 15 women and their
children.
Moms of the Treasure
Coast has begun a drive to
help provide supplies the
families need, including:
*Non-perishable food
items
*Toiletries
*Silverware
*Diapers and wipes
*Hand and bath towels
*Paper products
*Light bulbs and batteries
*Cleaning supplies
*Laundry detergent
*Children's books and arts
and crafts
*Powder formula
*Small kitchen appliances
*Pots and pans
*Twin and toddler bedding
*Feminine products
Saying they want to
change the face of the
homeless, Moms of the
Treasure Coast has arranged
for two drop-off locations


for the supplies throughout
the month of June.
The Port St. Lucie Com-
munity Center, 2195 S.E.
Airoso Blvd. will accept
supply donations during the
playgroup hours of Tuesday
and Wednesday from 9 a.m.
to noon; Wednesday from
5:45 to 6:45 p.m. and Friday
from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
Hungry Howies, 222 S.W.
Port St. Lucie Blvd. in Port
St. Lucie is also accepting
supply donations through
the end of June.
"Our goal is to show
mothers what our commu-
nity has to offer and to
interact with all different
types of people," said Mrs.
Provino-Nurewitz. "It helps
form friendships for the
moms and the kids can have
fun growing up."
Ms. Cromwell said the
assistance of Moms of the
Treasure Coast is invaluable.
"It takes the whole
community to help others,
and homelessness is
becoming a huge problem,"
she said.

Moms of the Treasure
Coast and M.IS.S. together
will hold a walk on May31
at Flagler Park in Stuart,
beginning at9 a.m.,
followed by a raffle and a
barbeque.

wearing jeans to work..
The collected funds are
donated to a charity that
the group decides to
sponsor for the calendar

lected for the benefit of
the Humane Society.
"We asked the Humane
Society what they need-
ed," said spokesperson


MaryAnn. Barker, River-
side vice president and
Customer care center
manager. "We collected
bleach, detergent, toys,
towels and, blankets. We
also. raised enough money

year, pay for a brick in the
walkway of their new
upcoming facility and still
have more than $200 cash
left over to give to them."
"Thanks to our volun-
teers and the commit-
ment of people in our
community to raise dona-
tions, we are able to keep
our facility going strong,"
said David Robertson,

PSL mom charged in incident at high school

A Port St. Lucie woman has been charged by the St. Lucie
County Sheriff's Office with two counts of felony child
abuse, after allegedly becoming involved in an altercation
between her daughter and another student.
An investigation by deputies, including the school
resource officer, revealed that on May 8, Roseana M. Scadu-
to, 31, of the 300 block of MaclayWay, arrived before school
began at St. Lucie West Centennial High School with her
daughter.
Witnesses told deputies that the daughter and another
student had previously arranged to have a fist fight. After the
fight began, Ms. Scaduto reportedly watched the fight.
According to the arrest affidavit, when the other student was
on top of her daughter, Ms. Scaduto grabbed the other girl
and "threw her from her position of advantage in the fight
with her daughter."
After that, the daughter reportedly began striking the
other girl several times, while Ms. Scaduto "began cheering
on her daughter." When the fight ended, Ms. Scaduto and
her daughter left the school grounds.
While detectives were conducting an investigation of the
incident at the school, Ms. Scaduto returned to the school
grounds with her daughter, asking to speak with an adminis-
trator. At that time, she was placed under arrest.
In a statement released after the alleged incident, Sheriff
Ken Mascara said, "It's very disturbing to see a parent of a
child allow their child to be involved in a physical altercation
with another child. It's even more disturbing to.find that the
parent would allow the altercation to continue once the par-
ent has had the ability to intervene and stop it."
After being interviewed at the Sheriff's Office Detective
Bureau, Ms. Scaduto was transported to the St. Lucie Coun-
ty Jail.

Robbery in Tradition
nets $85,000 in jewelry

On Sunday, May 4, a couple who reside in the Tradi-
tion development known as The Lakes decided to bicy-
cle to Publix in Tradition Square. They reportedly were
gone only 20 minutes. When they returned home, police
were at their door, alerted by the home's alarmnsystem,
and approximately $85,000 of the wife's jewelry was
gone.
When a police officer first arrived to the house in the
10600 block of Southwest Stratton Drive, he noticed a
sliding door at the back of the residence was closed, blut
there was a "pry mark" above the lock. While he waiting
for back-up officers to arrive before entering the home,
the owners of the residence returned.
Once police determined the house was empty, the
couple discovered a jewelry chest was open and many
items were missing, along with a Tiffany watch and
antique ring belonging to the husband that were stored
elsewhere in the home.
Although The Lakes has 24-hour security at its froht
gate, police discovered a rear entrance to the community
was not locked and had no surveillance.
At press time, there were no suspects to the crime.

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 I have evolved as my customers have
evolved. My customers' expectations, level
of education and sophistication are much
higher today. Your customers are no different.
My remarks are made sincerely and with a
positive intent toward you and your custom-
ers. I am not trying to tell you
how to run your business. I "My Cu
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your eXpectat
customers.


Virtually every car dealer Of eauc
in Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a sophisti
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500 much hig
to nearly $1,000. This extra
charge is programmed into
your computer. It has been made illegal in
many states including California, but is still
legal in Florida. The reason you charge this
fee is simply to increase the price of the car
Sand your profit in such a manner that it is not
noticed by your customers. This is just plain
wrong. I used to charge a dealer fee ($495)
and when I stopped charging it a few years
ago ii was scary Bul I dad it because I could

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

child abuse.
Col. Weierman said
DCF is now denying
this, stating instead that
it was a suggestion that
the parents remove the
children, not a directive.
However, he said several
parents have told him
they have DCF's mes-
sage recorded pn their
voice mail systems.
Ms. Higinbotham said
DCF is not preventing
parents from returning
their sons to Victory
Forge.
"The only thing we
asked them to' do is to
keep in mind we have
some serious allega-
tions that we are investi-
gating and the safety of
their children is very
concerning to us," she
said.
Officer Michelle
Steele, spokeswoman
for the Port St. Lucie
-Police Department, said
the department has also
investigated the allega-
tions in the current DCF
investigation.
"At this time, we don't
see that anything crimi-
nal has occurred, but it's
with the State Attorney's
Office the last I heard
and is being reviewed by
them, so the case isn't
closed yet," she said.
Col. Weierman said he
and several parents
have taken their con-
cerns to Governor Crist
and several legislators
to no avail.
"We've received zero
response. No response
in any way, shape or
form, even to the par-
ents," he said. "If this
was a police depart-
ment doing this, we
would have immediate
recourse in a court of
law. We could ask the
judge to throw it out for
violating the constitu-
tion of Florida. DCF
doesn't live within those
realms. The only way we
have recourse is to go to
the (Florida) inspector
general. It's the fox
watching the hen
house."

Ask The Jeweler
I just thought I'd share
with you some common &
some interesting requests we
get at St. Lucie Jewelry.
1.,Eyeglass repair, yes, we
do them about once a week
2.Gold Teeth - please go to
a dentist
3. Watch Batteries with a
very unusual green grease on
the back - not really grease,
but if it's really grimy, clean it
at home first.
4. Various body jewelry -
many I can't disclose in a
public column. Yes, we will
make almost any kind of jew-.
elry to attach to the body. You
have to put it on yourself, but
we'll make it.
5. Don't take a hidden
piece of body jewelry off and
hand it to us to clean either.
6. Spitting on your finger
to remove a ring - please don't
do this and hand it to us. It's
unsanitary and at least
extremely distasteful. (Blaah).
The best way to get a ring off
is a very special solution we
keep in the store at all times -
Windex, it works great.
7. Hearing aid batteries -
Yes, but not too often
8. Urns - Yes, we custom
make sealed personal urns
that contain the ashes of loved
ones. We have made them for
family members and pet own-
ers.

Nurses
From page Al
spiritual therapy intended
to treat both physical and
emotional needs, and con-
tinued throughout the
morning with yoga, medi-
tation and finally lunch in
the cafeteria with enter-
tainment by a comedian.
On May 7, nurses
attended the "Academy
Awards of Caring," when a
conference room at the
medical center was trans-
formed into an Oscar-like
celebration complete with
chocolate fountains and
glittering star decorations.
Those attending ate pop-
corn from an old-fash-
ioned machine while they
watched nursing adminis-
trators present awards to
nurses in eight categories.
The winners were chosen
by their peers.
The categories were
based on the theory of
"Nursing as Caring," a
guide to nursing written
by Anne Boykin, dean of
nursing at Florida Atlantic
University's college of
nursing in Boca Raton,
and Sarvina Schoenhofer.
The winners in the cate-
gories and the department
in which they work are:
*Patience - Marilyn
Cripps, orthopedics
*Trust - Raina Hoffman,
orthopedics
*Alternating Rhythms,
described by Ms. Ruple as
"the nurse's ability to
move back and forth
between action and reflec-
tion" - Deidre Holmes,
obstetrics
*Honesty - Margaret
Kolb, medical pediatrics
oncology
' eHumility - Susan Wirth,
intensive care unit and Joji
Eugenio, obstetrics
.*Hope - Cynthia Solana,
intensive care unit
*Courage - Sarsi
Lawhorn, emergency
room
*Knowing, described by
Ms. Ruple as "understand-
ing others' needs explicit
and implicity," - a three-
way tie between Hazel
Antiola, medical pediatric
oncology; Jacque Toppin,
obstetrics; and Maria
Kocen, intensive care unit.
Barbara Edwards, a clin-
ical nurse leader who
helped plan the week's
events, said the "Nursing
as Caring" theory isn't just
practiced during Nurses
Week.
"We have chosen this as
a guide to what we provide
at St. Lucie Medical Cen-
ter," she said. "It drives
every decision from
administration on down.
We conform to what the
patient needs from us."
On May 9, the nurses
were treated to a "mocktail
party" from 6 to 8:30 p.m.,
complete with food, bev-
erages, music and prizes.
To conclude the week's
celebration, St. Lucie
Medical Center invited
employees as well as the
public to join in a "Circle
of Caring," with people
holding hands as they
encircled the entire med-
ical center. A free barbe-
cue lunch was served after
the event for all who
attended.
In a statement released
by the medical center
prior to the event, plan-
ners said, "Hospital
employees and medical
staff realize that although
as caregivers they are
responsible for meeting
healthcare needs, it takes
an entire community to
make sure that everyone
feels as though they are
cared for. The human "Cir-
cle of Caring" will be a
symbolic gesture of our
community's care and
compassion for everyone."

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 I have evolved as my customers have
evolved. My customers' expectations, level
of education and sophistication are much
higher today. Your customers are no different:
My remarks are made sincerely and with a
positive intent toward you and your custom-
ers. I am not trying to tell you
,how to run your business. I "My C!
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your expectlat
customers.


EMPLOYMENT
If our culture
sounds like one
that fits with your
Ideas on the way
business should
be conducted,
please call us.

parts, body shop,
and accounting.


iS
tic


Virtually every car dealer of eauca
in Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a Sophistic
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500 much 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
fee is simply to increase the price of the car
and your profit in such a manner that it is not
noticed by your customers. This is just plain
wrong. I used to charge a dealer fee ($495)
and when I stopped charging it a few years
ago it was scary. But I did it because I could
no longer, in good conscience, mislead my
customers. Just because everybody else
was doing the same thing, did not make it
correct.


h


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
towers' able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
Ons, level or used car. You can do the
same.


tion and Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
nation are I think of myself as the new
"sheriff" that -has come to
er 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 it or not have the courage to follow my
lead. But maybe you will be the exception. If
you have any interest in following my lead,
call me anytime. I don't have a secretary and
I don't screen any of my phone calls. I would
love to chat with you about this.
Sincerely,
Earl Stewart - Earl Stewart Toyota

Cleared construction area still chaotic

We all know that the construction on U.S. 1, near Midway
Road has caused,a lot of confusion, but it won't end when
the construction does. The Department of Transportation
has made it impossible to turn east when coming out of the
Walgreen's parking lot. This is inconvenient and makes for a
lot of traffic hang-ups.
Does anyone agree?

Stop whining about the windmills

Instead of everybody complaining aboutthe windmills
that will end up saving us money, why not complain about
the aliens that are getting everything for free. What we
should do is as soon as they hit American soil, put them in
the military.

Cult members are committing crimes

This is in regards to the rant 'being different isn't a crime,'
about the cult in Texas. This person is obviously on the
wrong side of the tracks. If he thinks that raping and
impregnating 12-year old girls is OK, he needs to leave this
country. Using religion as an excuse is unacceptable. I hope
the courts prove this to be true.

Web site is disturbing

I use an online site to either buy or sell items. It's a great
source to find the things you want. However, there are two
sections that truly disgust me. One is under the personals
section, and the other is under services. The one under per-
.sonals is "Casual Encounters". This is where people can find
someone else to hook up with. But, it's not your basic per-
sonal/dating ads. It's for people to find others like them-
selves for sex. And, from what I've seen, a lot of these peo-
ple are married! What are these people thinking? What are
they telling society? That it's okay to cheat on your spouse?
That marriage doesn't mean anything? I think these people
should be ashamed of themselves. They should. realize
what they're doing is morally wrong, and that some day
*they wilbe.caught.
The other one that bothers me (and I'm sure I'm not
alone) is the erotic section under services. I thought prosti-
tution was illegal. They're prostitutes soliciting sex.
Why doesn't law enforcement do something about this?
Prostitution is illegal, isn't it? And, what about our kids? Do
we want our children seeing things like this? What is the
world coming to? Are we that insensitive and uncaring as a
.society that we accept things like this? A lot of people these
days have'an "I don't care" attitude, "as long as it doesn't
affect me, so what?" This is just another thing that puts all of
us deeper in the crapper. And, some day people like those
who place those ads will have to answer for what they've
;done. And, don't be fooled ... we'll too have to answer for
,our uncaring attitude.

Hope for the youth

We will save our youth from illegal drugs and pornogra-
phy. We need to save them from wimps and sneaks. It is bet-
ter to be a square. Do what's right, not what's wrong. We
shall become more educated and help the youth against
:those thdt target them. We will never let them down. Our
,communities are crying for law and order.

Anti-graffiti laws are pathetic

The new anti-graffiti law passed in St. Lucie County is a
joke. There is no way to stop these hoodlums from marking
'their territory unless they are put in jail for their crimes.
-What happened to community patrols and the time when
:people weren't afraid to stand up for themselves and their
,neighborhoods?

Wasting tax money again

I've seen this huge bomb-diffusing tank roaming the
'streets of St. Lucie County, lights flashing and horns blaring.
;With the price of gas, and all the trickle effects of the econo-
'my, is it necessary to parade the county's newest toy
.around?

More health news you can use


n a recent column on
sleep apnea, I compared
the CPAP device used to
treat the disorder to the
mask worn by Hannibal
Lecter. A reader took
exception and said that it
would discourage people
from seeking treatment. I
apologize for offending
anyone. She did suggest
that there are many such
devices available-and that
some are better than
others. If you have been
diagnosed with sleep apnea
and a CPAP is suggested,
look into the choices
available. It may take more
than one attempt to find
one that works for you, but
they do make a difference.
While I can't recommend
specific devices, it is worth
talking to your health care
provider about the different
types available.

Vitamin K may fight
inflammation linked
to chronic diseases

(From the Tufts University
Health & Nutrition Lette; ,
March 2008)

Researchers at Tufts


University have linked high
blood levels and dietary
intake of vitamin K with
decreased blood levels of
certain markers that
indicate that inflammation
is present. Vitamin Ki or
phylloquinone, is the most
common form of the
vitamin and is found in
green leafy vegetables.
Many conditions,
including cardiovascular
disease, are linked to
chronic inflammation.
Arthritis, Type 2 diabetes,
and even Alzheimer's
disease may be influenced
by inflammation.
Researchers don't know
how vitamin Ki combats
inflammation and they
urge more study. In the
meantime, most people,

Beware the Zlob computer virus


Over the last few
months, a really
compelling reason
to keep your antivirus up to
date has been rearing its
ugly head. A virus called
"Zlob" (originally from
Russia according to
Wikipedia) has been
hammering away at
unprotected computers,
and I can tell you it's a pain
in the butt to remove.
First detected in 2005, it
has mutated into about 32
different variants so each
time I run into it the battle is
a little different then the
last. And I haven't seen this
much activity from one
virus variant since "the great
NetSky epidemic of 2004!"
Now, when people call me
to fix it they don't call and
say "Hey Sean, I have a
really nasty Zlob infection
on my pc, can you fix it?"
Usually, the call goes more
like this, "Every time I turn
around I get a Windows
error telling me my
machine is infected and I
need to download a virus
cleaner. They want $39.95
for it, should I go ahead and
download it? Oh, by the way,
my Web browser keeps
opening up different


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This

windows and some of them
are XXX rated! How do I
make it stop? Is my machine
infected?"
Since I've been seeing so
many of these infections,
when I hear that complaint
the first thing I think of is
Zlob. And I know it's going
to be a frustrating and slow
service call.
The reason I know it's
going to be slow and
frustrating is because of the
way some of the variants of
Zlob behave, it can take
some time just to regain
control of the machine.
When I first sit down in
front of a machine infected
with Zlob it's slow and some
of the "tools" we use to try


to get to the bottom of
things (like the Task Manag-
er) are often disabled. Try to
open the Task Manager and
I'm likely to see a message
like "Task Manager has been
disabled by your adminis-
trator." That's a frustrating
message because at that
point I usually am the
administrator!
It can also be very difficult
to do anything because of
the time it takes for any-
thing to happen after you
click. But wait is what you
have to do. Click, wait, click,
wait. If you get impatient
and click more than once it
takes twice as long and can
even lock up the machine.
Once control of the
machine is regained, the
next steps that usually have
to be taken are to make sure
an up to date antivirus is
installed (I recommend AVG'
Free). Once the antivirus is
running, it isn't long before
the infection is detected
and identified as Zlob. At
that point, I usually install
one of the many Zlob
removal tools found on the
Internet, turn off system
restore on the infected
machine, reboot in safe
mode and then run the


removal tool to kill the
infection. Then I run a virus
scan and have the antivirus
clean tip whatever it finds.
From there, we can reboot.
into normal mode and turn
the system restore back on
and breath a sigh of relief as
the system should be close
to normal by now.
So how does one get
infected with this or other
viruses for that matter?
Most of the time I hear
either "I'm real careful
about opening e-mails" or
"It must have been my kids,
I have no idea how I could
have gotten infected!"
Well, the first thing that all
thee infections I've been
seeing have in common is
an expired antivirus
running on the system. For
months, little pop ups have
been coming up telling
them that they need to
renew and those messages
get ignored. They still see
the little antivirus icon next
to the clock so they feel safe,
but in reality they are
vulnerable to any virus
variants that have been
released since their sub-
scription expired.

A new study, reported in
the journal Neurology,
indicates that regular, non-
strenuous physical activity
can substantially reduce the
risk for vascular dementia,
the second most common
form of dementia after
Alzheimer's, which results
from the effects of chronic

that those who engaged the
most regularly in moderate
activity did best when tested
on cognitive functions.
Moderate activity included
walking, stair-climbing and
gardening, house and yard
work, light carpentry and
bicycling.
Researchers suggest that
exercise may improve blood
flow to the brain, reduce
stress hormones and
protect the brain through

shown promise in the

From page A1
At Northport K-8 School,
the percentage-point
improvement was even
greater, with 73 percent of
students scoring 3.5 or
better, compared to 51
percent last year.
"These exceptional
learning gains reflect the
dedication of teachers,
students, support staff and
parents to continuous
improvement in student
performance," said St.
Lucie County schools
superintendent Michael
Lannon. "The entire com-
munity should be proud of
this accomplishment.
Among the eighth
graders, Southern Oaks
Middle School led the
pack. It had a 14 percent-
age-point increase, with 90
percent of its students
scoring 3.5 or higher.
Fort Pierce Central High
School was the top per-
former among 10th-
graders, with an increase
of eight percentage points
over last year's perform-
ance.
"This positive movement
or shift in grade-level per-
formance is a good indica-
tor that St. Lucie County
schools and students are
definitely on the rise," said
Owens Roberts, assistant
superintendent for cur-
riculum and assessment.
But no school outshone
Weatherbee Elementary.
This year; 77 percent of
students scored 3.5 or bet-
ter - a sharp turnaround
from last year when less
than half made the grade.
"That's an unheard of
improvement," Ms. Karst
said.

Cancer center
screens almost 700
for skin cancer
The Moffitt Cancer Centei
in Tampa,' Florida's only
National Cancer Institute, has
announced the results of its
Spring Swing, during which,
695 people in the state were
screened for skin cancer. The
center announced that
approximately 15 percent of
those screened were found to
have a suspected skin cancer
lesion or mole, while a sus-
pected pre-cancerous lesion
or mole was found in 38 per-
cent of those screened.
On March 15, a cancer cen-
ter bus was brought to Tradi-
tion Stadium .to increase the
community's knowledge of
sun safety.
While the Mets prepared to
play the Cardinals inside the
stadium, Moffitt personnel
provided free cancer screen-'
ings outside in the two hours
leading up to the first pitch.,
Dubbed "Spring Swing -
Moffitt's Sun Safety Tour," the
event was the result of a part-
nership between the Tampa
Bay Devil Rays and the Moffitt
Cancer Center. The tour
made stops at nine spring
training venues throughout
the month of March.
"Wherever we've gone in
Florida, we've seen a high
percentage of people with
severe and permanent sun
damage, and quite a few with
precancerous or cancerous
skin lesions," said Dr. Verori
Sondak of the Moffitt Cancer
Center in a statement. "It's'
important that people are
aware of the risk, take appro-
priate sun precautions and
get (their) skin checked peri-
odically and anytime there is
a concern."

SA Bodysculpture
--(Tumescent Liposcuipture)
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.

Why should we read the Bible?


T he Bible is the world's
best selling book, but
JT why should we read it?
In Psalm 119:105, the
psalmist addresses God
when he says, "Your word is
.a lamp to my feet and 'a
-light for my path."
To walk safely in the forest
,at night, we need a light to
*guide us around tree roots,
iand other obstacles of
,.danger.
' The Bible, God's guide-
o.book to a purposeful life,
reveals the entangling roots
of false values and philoso-
phies. Reading God's word
makes us wise. True wis-
dom goes beyond amassing
knowledge; it applies that
knowledge in a life-chang-
ing way.
King David wrote in Psalm
19:8, "The precepts of the
Lord are right, giving joy to
the heart. The commands
of the Lord are radiant,
giving light to the eyes."
In other words, the "life-
maps" of God are accurate,
pure, and bright, rejoicing
the heart, and illuminating
our understanding.
When we think of pre-
cepts (laws), we think of
'rules that keep us from
having fun; however, here
we see the opposite: laws
that give us joy and make us
wise.
,. By choosing to "go it
alone" without following
the eternal truths contained
in God's word, we make a
mess of our lives and the
lives of others. God's Word
warns us of the subtle
pitfalls (temptations) that
often look so inviting.
Psalm 19:10-11 declares,
"They [the ordinances of
the Lord] are more precious
than gold, than much pure
,gold; they are sweeter than
'honey, than honey from the
Scomb. By them is your
servant (David, speaking of
:himself) warned; in keeping
them is great reward." Here
.'King David gives us two
additional important
reasons for reading the
Bible: it points at danger
and warns us, and it
rewards us with success.
- In addition, read God's
word in your family devo-
tion time, because it blesses
little children (Matthew


DAVID GOODE
Religion columnist

19:14), strengthens young
men (1 John 2:14), sancti-
fies (sets us apart, as
belonging to God) and
cleanses all who read it
(Ephesians 5:26). It protects
widows (Exodus 22:22-23)
and honors the aged
(Leviticus 19:32). It offers
eternal life to everyone who
believes in Jesus Christ
(John 3:36).
Ok, so we have all heard
these Christian buzz words,
but what does it really
mean to believe in Jesus
Christ?
For that answer, let's turn
to one of the most widely
known verses in the entire
Bible, John 3:16. "For God
so loved the world that He
gave His one and only Son,
that whoever believes in
Him shall not perish but
have everlasting life."
To believe is more than to
agree intellectually that
Jesus is the son of God..To
believe means to put our
complete trust and confi-
dence in Jesus that He alone
can save us.
It is to put Christ in charge
of our immediate plans'and
eternal destiny. It is coming
to Him as we are, and
relying upon Him for the
power to change our
lifestyle of destructive
habits.
Maybe you are asking this
question; "Why should I
trust the Bible to be the
authentic Word of God?"
One of the strongest
evidences of the divine
inspiration of the Bible is
the phenomenon of
fulfilled prophecy. The Bible
is unique among religious
writings of mankind

because it dares to predict
future events in great detail.
It is impossible to consis-
tently prophesy future
events including specifics
unless you are God.
When we examine the
Bible, we find hundreds of
detailed prophecies
concerning various nations,
events, and individuals
covering thousands of
years.
In Isaiah 7:14, the prophet
Isaiah predicted that the
Messiah would be born of a
virgin, and that He would
be called Immanuel
(meaning God with us).
Isaiah prophesied these two
occurrences 700 years'
before the birth of Christ to
a virgin named Mary. We
find the fulfillment in
Matthew 1:18-23.

Isaiah 41:18-20 says, "I
will make rivers flow on
barren heights, and springs
within the valleys. I will
turn the desert into pools of
water, and the parched
ground into springs. I will
put in the desert the cedar
and the acacia, the myrtle
and the olive. I will set pines
in the wasteland, the fir and
the cypress together, so that
people may see and know,
may consider and under-
stand, that the hand of the
Lord has done this, that the
Holy One of Israel has
created it."
. The lack of available
water, including rain; is one
reason why Israel was a
desolate, unproductive land
during much of the past

PATTY TOPPA
Travel columnist


Occasionally, tourism
boards from various
destinations offer
travel consultants and
writers a trip to see what is
new and exciting. These
trips are often very busy and
exhausting.
I recently had the oppor-
tunity to visit Jamaica for
this purpose.
Our five-day excursion
took us from Kingston,
located on the southeastern
coast, through Ocho Rios to
Montego Bay, on the north
coast, with visits to local
hotels, resorts and attrac-
tions along the way.
The Jamaican Tourist
Board invited travel consult-
ants from South Florida,
NewYork, Chicago and
Orlando. There were a
couple from Texas and.
Puerto Rico, as well.
My schedule took me from
Orlando airport to Montego
Bay on Air Jamaica. The
flight was only two hours,
and champagne is served on
all flights, a very nice perk.
Because we were starting
our trip in Kingston, we
boarded another plane for
the 35-minute flight (we
flew home from Montego
Bay).
Jamaica is a developing
nation with more than 2.6
million people. Kingston,
the capital, is a fast-growing


all new furniture, flat screen
TVs, wet bar, etc. The hotel
was fairly full with people
who were in town for the
funeral of Bob Marley's
mother. There was going to
be an enormous memorial
service in Kingston with a
procession to Ocho Rios for'
the burial.
Kingston is called the
"Heartbeat of the
Caribbean." Its music and
culture are world renown.
The people are pleasant and
always greet you in passing.
We visited the Bank of
America, where the tourist
board hosted a welcome
event featuring many local
restaurants offering a taste
of Jamaica, jerk seasonings
and fresh seafood. There
was Blue Mountain coffee
and the famed Appleton
Reserve rum served, as well.
The bank houses a
museum of local art as well
as the Money Museum,
where the history of Jamaica
can be traced through the
currency when countries
such as Spain and England
claimed ownership.
We visited attractions,
such as Two Sisters Cave,
named for a story about two
sisters who were slaves and
ran away and hid in the
caves. When they thought
they were going to be
caught, they drowned
themselves in the waters
that seeped into the caves.
Other attractions are the
historical Devon House built

by George Steibel, the first
black millionaire in Jamaica,'
and Heroes Memorial Park
where former prime minis-
ters and soldiers are buried.
There, we witnessed the
changing of the guard,
which was quite a moving
event.
We visited the Hilton Hotel
in Kingston and were invited
to the Jamaica Exchange, a
trade show that gave us an
opportunity to speak with
various hoteliers and
attraction representatives
about their properties (this
gives us the opportunity to
get updated information to
relay to our clients).
We then traveled over a
mountain road to Ocho Rios
where we had a one-night
stay at the Breezes Resort at
Runaway Bay and on to
Montego Bay where we
stayed at the Sunset Resort.
Both are all-inclusive
properties.
Stay tuned: I will cover
both of those properties as,
well as other attractions and
hotels visited, in a later
article. I believe it will be
worth the wait. There is just
so much to say about
Jamaica. It was a very
informative trip, and I look
forward to seeing other
areas of it as well.

city with much develop-

What struck me was that
there were many impover-
ished areas speckled
amongst the more affluent
homes, and the roads that
were not yet rebuilt for travel
were filled with potholes.
Some areas still had the
feel of a third-world country.
Many areas gave me an
unsafe feeling; however, the
people were warm and
friendly overall.
We checked in at the
Jamaica Pegasus, one of
Kingston's oldest luxury
hotels. The lobby, pool and
grounds are very upscale..
Our room, however, needed
some work. It was dated, but
our trip was about seeing
properties, and we were able

pair of bypass pruning
Sshears. This is important to
make precise, clean cuts.
Next, you will need a
good-quality potting soil.
Choose a brand that is light
in consistency. A seed
starting mix would be an
ideal choice. You will also
need a rooting hormone
such as Rootone or Fast
Root. You're almost ready.
You will still need some
plain, 1-gallon pots and
wooden skewers for stakes.
You also need a spray bottle
and some plastic bags.
Now that you have all
your supplies, it's time to
have some fun.
The first thing you have to
do is find the best stems to
use for your cutting. Most
rose varieties will root well
at any age, but it is best to
use firm but young stems.
You should use stems
where the flower petals
have just fallen off or are
fading. You always want to
be sure to leave at least
three to five leaves on the
.stem you are trying to
propagate. The leaves on


JOE ZELENAK
Garden Nook
the stem help to produce
root-promoting hormones
for better success.
Do not let your cuttings
wilt before working with
them. If they wilt, your
chances for success will be
dramatically diminished.
It is a good idea to keep a
spray bottle filled with
plain water handy to keep
the cuttings moist while
you are working with them.
Roses, unlike other
plants, are not fussy about
where the cut is made on
the stem. Roses have the
ability to form roots almost
anywhere along the stem. I
have heard some people
make small vertical slits at
the base of the stem with a
sharp knife. This process
can help the rooting
process be more successful.
You are now ready to
place your stems in their
new homes. Before placing
your stems in the soil, first
moisten the base of the


stem and dip it in the
rooting hormone. Shake off
any excess powder. Make a
small hole in the soil with
your finger or some other
suitable object and place
your specimen in the hole
and secure. Place your
plants in a bright location
but not in direct sun.
Proper moisture is
essential for success in
rooting roses. They need a
very humid environment
for proper development.
One way to achieve this is
to place a plastic bag over
the plant and use the
skewers as stakes to keep
the bag from touching the
plants.
Some rose varieties will
produce roots in as little as
two weeks while other *
varieties will take longer.
During the winter months,
the process can take as
long as seven weeks. To tell
if a plant is rooted, gently
tug on the plant and if it


offers resistance, it is most
likely rooted. Once your
plants are well rooted,
move them to a shaded
area for several days before
putting them into a
brighter location. If you
move them to direct sun
too soon, they may wilt and
possibly die.
With some luck and
practice, you can become
an expert at producing
your own roses. The
process is both challenging
and lots of fun.
Next week, we will talk
about a plant that loves to
be ignored. See you then,

prophet Isaiah's predic-
tion of a future restoration
of Israel coincides with an
occurrence in modern
Israel.
During the 1900s, when
many Jews returned to
their ancient homeland,
they built a network of
irrigation systems and
planted thousands of trees
in Israel.
All of the trees referred
to by the Prophet Isaiah
are among the trees
planted in Israel during
the last century. Ancient
Bible prophecies fulfilled
with total accuracy clearly
shows us that we can trust


the entire Bible to be the
authentic Word of God.

Debbie Macomber has her own
baseball card.
The Seattle Mariners fan and best-
selling author received the card in
July. 26, 2007, when she made her
pitching debut at Safeco Field,
throwing out.the first pitch at a Seat-
tle Mariners game.
While Ms. Macomber lives in Seat-
tle most of the year, she spends her
winters in Fort Pierce, and she
recently invited me to her home to
talk about writing and about her new
book, "Twenty Wishes," which has
just been published in hardcover by
MIRA books.
She'll appear on May 24 at the Vero
Beach Book Center for a book sign-
ing as part of her "Twenty Wishes"
tour.
The writer's own story is the stuff
of fiction. She barely graduated from
high school because of dyslexia; her
third-grade teacher told her mother,
'Debbie's a nice little girl who'll never
do well in school.'
Even so, the little girl loved books,
and at four, her mother took her to
the library.
"I loved the library," she said. "I
hold books to my heart. The chil-
dren's librarian was Beverley Cleary
(who went on to write the "Ramona"
books) and I sat on her lap. I
dreamed of being a writer, and when
I was a senior in high school, Sister
Anna Marie interviewed each of us
and I had never told anyone I want-
ed to be a writer. I knew I'd be dis-
couraged. It was such a fragile little
dream. I told her I wanted to be a

Your success in life is directly related to your goals
and target dates. You are the leader of the zodiac.
You have large dreams. You set high goals. You
achieve much. Many think you are lucky. It has lit-
tle to ,do with,.luck. It has everything to do with,
heart, spirit and hard work. Your surrender to
instincts is an added bonus.
Taurus-April 20-May 20
This is your month of the year. You are at an emo-
tional, mental and spiritual high right now with
the sun, Mercury and Venus in Taurus. Use this
boost of energy to finish old projects and start
new ones. Follow through on important things,
and you will see spirit blessing you with wonderful
results.

writer and burst into tears.".
There was no chance of college
and her choices were to live at home
or get married. She married Wayne
40 years ago this year and had four
kids in five years. She wrote her early
books in her kitchen, on a rented
typewriter, and it took five years for
her to find a publisher. Writing, she
says, did not come easily.
"I had to learn to be a writer. I'm a
story-teller; my writing skills were at
the bottom of the basement."
Her first book, "Heartsong," was
published in 1982 by Silhouette


Books, and she has never, looked
back. In 2007, her book "74 Seaside
Avenue," was No. 1 on all the major
bestseller lists including The New
York Times. Still, that's not what
keeps her going.
"When I thought about being a
writer, I had a feeling of joy," she
said. "I was so happy in front of a
typewriter. I still feel that way today.
I love being a writer; today, with the
traveling, finding the time to write is
the hardest."

Stuffed cabbage and a decadent pie


Hello smart shoppers.
This week we will
make a favorite of
mine, stuffed cabbage.
Although riot difficult, it is
time-consuming, so make a
lot to freeze for another
meal.
I will also give you the
recipe for lazy man's stuffed
cabbage that is made in a
flash. Remember, if you use
fresh ground "fat-free"
ground beef as I have.
instructed you in the past,
you will have.a low-fat meal.
Then, let's sample a
traditional pie from Ken-
tucky, Stuffed cabbage is
popular worldwide, and the
ingredients can be com-
pletely different depending
on what ethnic method is
used.
My paternal grandmother,
Mamma, made a wonderful
Italian-style stuffed cab-
bage. Over the years, I have
tried others and have added
several ingredients to the
original recipe.

STUFFED CABBAGE

One large head cabbage
2 pounds fresh fat-free

Four slices bread, soaked
in water and squeezed
Two large cloves garlic,

One small onion, chopped
Two stalks celery, chopped
Small center of cabbage,

ground beef add 1 to 2
tablespoons of extra virgin
olive oil per pound.
Since the center of the
cabbage is in the meat
mixture, you must prepare it
first. This is really where the
time goes. Fill a very large
pot halfway with water.
Bring to a boil.
With a small knife, cut
around the core of the
cabbage and peel off as
many leaves as possible
without tearing. Drop leaves
into boiling water and cook
until pliable. Remove and
place in a colander. Careful-
ly put the whole head in the
water and cook for a few
minutes. Remove head, run
under cold water and
remove as many leaves as
possible. Continue this
process until you have
removed all the stuffable
leaves. Pare off just enough
from the stem end of each
leaf to make it easy to roll.
Mix all remaining ingredi-
ents together including
cabbage center. Place some
stuffing at the stem end of
each leaf and roll, tucking in
the ends. Place side by side
in a large baking pan. Make
meat balls of remaining
stuffing. Top with sauce.
Served with rice, stuffed
cabbage in my opinion has
no equal.

SAUCE
One 28-ounce can tomato


puree
Equal amount of water
One medium onion,
chopped
1 large clove garlic,
chopped
Salt and pepper
Mix together and spoon
over rolls. Cover and bake at
350 degrees for 1 hour.

SWEET AND SOUR
STUFFED CABBAGE
Add 1/2 cup raisins to the
meat mixture. Cook the
stuffed rolls for 30 minutes
as explained. Top with sweet
and sour sauce, cover and
bake for 20 minutes.
.Remove cover and bake 20
minutes more.

SWEET AND
SOUR SAUCE
1 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons Worcester-
shire sauce
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup raisins

LAZY MAN'S
STUFFED CABBAGE
Serves four
This recipe sounds crazy
but it's fast, easy and
excellent.
1 pound fresh "fat free"
ground beef
1/2 medium green pepper,
chopped
One medium onion,
chopped
3 /4-teaspoon salt
1/4-teaspoon pepper
One medium head
cabbage, cored and cut up
One can tomato soup
Brown beef in skillet; pour
off any fat. Add peppers,
onions and seasonings.
Continue browning until
onions are golden. In a large
deep oven-proof casserole,
place half the cabbage, then
all the meat mixture. Top
with remaining cabbage.

was featured in a restaurant
in Lake Worth and the
recipe was a well-kept

indecent and high in fat, but
it sure is wonderful. I
wouldn't change a thing to

Ms. Macomber is fre-
quently asked where she
gets the ideas for her char-
acters and stories.
"They are creations in my
mind, but my mother
inspired Charlotte in the
Cedar Cove series. On the
phone with her she says,
'how are your bowels?' Peo-
ple ask you the question
they want you to ask them. I
get ideas everywhere. I
come up with the plot and
then choose the characters."
Her latest book, "Twenty
Wishes" was inspired by .a,
fan. She met a woman who.
told her that she had a list of:
20 things she wanted to do
before she died. One of
tlem was to meet Ms.
Macomber, and the idea for
the new book was born. It
tells the Story, of a young
widow who starts to heal by


making a list of her dreams
and working on making
them come true.
Judi Snyder, associate
director of public services
for the Martin County
Library System, says that a
new Macomber title is an
event.
"She's a very popular
author and we have all of
her titles," Ms. Snyder said.
"We can't wait to get her new
book. Her public is waiting."
Ms. Macomber's best-sell-
ing series about Blossom
Street features women who
become friends while knit-
ting and is a reflection of Ms.
Macomber's own love for
the craft.
"My grandmother died
when I was 4, and my older
cousins tell me she loved to
crochet. She'd fall asleep
crocheting. At 12, I had an


incredible urge to learn it
and my mom didn't know
how so she took me to a
yarn store and I've been
knitting ever since. It's the
way I release tension at the
end of the day and how I
express love with my grand-
kids. Here's how important it
is; of all the things I've knit-
ted in 48 years, I've only
made one thing for myself."
In addition to Ms.
Macomber's series about
every day people, she is also
the author of the Angel
series featuring the irre-
pressible angels Shirley,
Goodness and Mercy. These
are stories close to the
author's heart and speak to
her spiritual side.
"It's who I am," she said.
I'm a woman of faith, a
Christian since 1973. I
refused to write about pre-
marital sex. I was rearing
kids and I didn't want my
kids to think it was okay."
At the end of the inter-
view, I asked Ms. Macomber,
whose beautiful condo faces
the ocean and the river, how
she and Wayne happened to
settle in Fort Pierce.
"We looked all over Flori-
da from Daytona Beach
down to the Keys and up the
west coast. I'm a water per-
son. We took a price range
and this was the best value.
I didn't remember anything
about it except the view."
Author Debbie Macomber
will sign copies of her new
book, "Twenty Wishes," at the
Vero Beach Book Center,
2145 Indian River Blvd., Vero
Beach, on May 24 at 1 p.m.

Shiloh presents 'Broadway to Hollywood'
If you're a fan of the Broadway musical or you love to
see how the best Broadway tunes made it onto the big
screen, you'll want to see Shiloh Theatrical Production's
special musical revue, "Broadway to Hollywood," which
will be performed at the Lyric Theatre from May 21-May
25. Musical director Paul Morgan, who directed last
season's wonderful."Broadway Showstoppers," has lined
up a cast of Treasure Coast favorites including Sharon
Owens, Jim Trainer, Rick Decker, Tom Farley, Carrie
Phipps-Banfi, Don Matlin and Travis Eaton to celebrate
the great movie musicals from the 1950s to the present,
including "West Side Story," "Guys & Dolls," "Evita,"
"Cabaret,"" and "Legally Blond."
The production is a family affair. Beth McKenzie
Shestak ofVero Beach is directing the show; her mother,
Faye McKenzie is producing it and her father Neil
McKenzie, is the stage manager.
The McKenzies, who used to own a theater in Orlando,
are no strangers to the theater, and Beth McKenzie
Shestak says this is an especially exciting venture
because Shiloh is joining with Florida Arts & Dance and
CBPH Productions to put on this program.
"It's exciting to take Shiloh in a new direction," she
said. "This will be the first collaborative effort, and
because of the joint effort of these three companies, with
Shiloh leading the way, the Treasure Coast will be treated
to some of the best singers and dancers in the area."
A special feature of this production is the guest chore-
ography done by professionals from Florida Arts &
Dance. Tasha Patterson has choreographed commercials
andvideos; Burchin Gursel, of Port St. Lucie, has per-
formed at Sun Fest; Anna Preston has her own dance
troupe, Anna Preston and Dancers; and Lisa Langford is
a member of the troupe. Among the production num-
bers is "You Can't Stop the Beat," from "Hairspray,"
featuring teens from Florida Arts & Dance.

Brown said. "They played
pretty good defense."
The team's performance
was even more remarkable
considering the qualifier
marked the first time the
Rams took the floor under
Brown's guidance.
"I had been to a couple of
practices," Brown said. "I
thought they had a very
good team.
"(The previous coach)
was a young kid. It was his
first time coaching a travel

patience. Some players
didn't like his style. That's
what I was told.

Although currently side-
lined with a knee injury,
Chris Harris is excited what

Road to baseball tourney begins


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
As a coach, John Messina
went to the baseball state
finals 10' times.
Now, he's helped bring
them to Port St. Lucie.
Back in February, Tradi-
tion Field was chosen as
the site for the 2009 and
2010 Florida High School
Athletic Association Base-
ball Finals state champi-
onship tournament.
Messina, the St. Lucie West
Centennial athletic direc-
tor, along with Tom Coluc-
ci of the Treasure Coast
Sports Commission and
Paul Taglieri of the St.
Lucie Mets were the cata-
lysts in bringing the presti-
gious event to the area.
"(The tournament) was
put up for bid in Decem-
ber," Messina said. "Five
different areas bid on it.
"The FHSAA came to
visit and looked over Cen-
tennial and Tradition Field
and then (in February)
they let us know we had
beat out the others."
"It's a joint effort by Cen-
tennial, the St. Lucie
County Recreation Depart-
ment, the Treasure Coast
Sports Commission and
the New York and St. Lucie
Mets."
While the tournament is
not slated to begin until
May 20 of next year, the
preparation is already
underway.
"It's a whole year
process," Messina said.
"You can't wait until three
or four months ahead of
time.
"It's taking up every bit
of my free time. We're in
charge of everything. As
the host school we have to
get everything done.
"It's going to be a lot of
work, but it's going to be
fun. We want to get the
whole community
involved."
While the task of organ-


izing 18 games for 24
teams over six days might
seem daunting, Messina
said the offers for assis-
tance are already pouring
in.
"Everybody wants to
help out," Messina said.
"I've had five more people
I haven't heard from in
years asking what can I do
to help."
Messina has also called
upon some of the area's
sports leaders to con-
tribute their time.
"Every team will have a
host coach from this area
that will stay with them
the whole time," Messina
said. "We have a commit-
tee of 32 former and pres-
ent coaches and AD's (ath-
letic directors) to run the
tournament."
Part of staging a success-
ful tournament is seeing
what has worked in the
past. To that end, Messina
planned to attend this
year's competition in Sara-
sota, the site of the finals
since 2005, as well as from
1993 through 1996.
"I'm going to watch what
they're doing and learn
what to do," Messina said.
Messina also plans to
institute some riew ideas
of his own.
"I'm trying to get the lit-
tle leagues sponsored by
businesses to get the little
leagues to come out,"
Messina said. "It's some-
thing I really want to
push."
While Tradition Field has
seen its share of World
Series and Florida State
League champions, Messi-
na is excited about the
prospect of tomorrow's
superstars gracing the dia-
mond.
"Alex Rodriguez, Chipper
Jones and Johnny Damon
all played in state finals,"
Messina said. "For $8 a
session, it'll be the best
ticket in town. You're going
to see great men from all

showing. I'm not sure why,
but there have even been
reports of some snook
being caught.
The blues have been
biting from sun up to
about mid-morning then
the whiting and croakers
move in. Use a little piece
of shrimp for the whiting
and croaker, and for all the
rest use whiting or croaker
to do the job.
Permits prefer small
crabs, but they will eat
shrimp and sand fleas.
Offshore, from 60- to
100- feet of water, fish
have been in the zone.
Run baits below the
surface, leaving one up
and the other three at
different depths.
The sun is bright, and
the fish don't wear sun-
glasses. They will be in
their comfort zone.

put three dolphins in the

pounds. Another person
kept three in the same
class on Bally Hoo, all
weighted to run down.
Have the pitch rod ready,
cobia love to hang out in
the shade that boats offer.
The turbidity is gone
from the rivers, so fish


shallow early and fish
deeper or shaded water
after the sun has been up
for a couple of hours.
I've had good reports of
trout and reds on top
water early with a mix of
jacks, lady fish and snook,
then switch over to a bait
that you can work across
the bottom. There has
been great snook action
from the bridges during
the dhrk hours, using live
pinfish and flair hawks. '
From the causeways,
drum, sheephead, jacks
and some blue fish have
been biting throughout
the day.
Finally summer is here,
did I tell you how much I
love this place?
