Fraud investigation leads

to major marijuana bust


BY SAMANTHA JOSEPH
Staff writer
ST. LUCIE COUNTY - Deputies
intending to uncover documents
proving mortgage fraud at a St. Lucie
County home made an unexpected
discovery.
Inside the Indian River Estates
house, they found what authorities
described as a sophisticated cultiva-
tion system for growing marijuana.
"A modest home east of U.S.1 in
unincorporated St. Lucie County
housed (an) elaborate marijuana
'grow house' that could have brought
its owners $1.2 million a year," said
Sheriff Ken Mascara.
Authorities arrested a 30-year-old


Fort Pierce man, Daniel Padron, on
three felony drug charges related to
the incident.
Mr. Padron, a self-employed out-
board mechanic, faces charges of
possession of marijuana with intent
to sell, culitivation of marijuana and
trafficking of marijuana.
He made no comments after his
arrest.
The Fort Pierce man is not the
owner of the house, and citing an
ongoing investigation, authorities
would provide no further informa-
tion or say whether he was linked to
the mortgage fraud case they were
originally investigating.

Rams fall short in bid ..


for state baseball title

Two returning pitchers increase chance
of 2009 encore at Tradition Field , .


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
SARASOTA - In the Class 3A base-
ball state final, John Carroll lost to a
familiar opponent.
Themselves.
Known for its stellar pitching and
equally solid play in the field, the Rams
had a problem with the latter, commit-
ting five errors in an 8-2 loss to Planta-
tion-American Heritage at Ed Smith
Stadium in Sarasota.
"We didn't play solid defense," Rams'
head coach Mike Easom said. "We did-
n't make the routine plays."
After getting a run in the top of the
first as a result of Heritage's shoddy
glovework, John Carroll gave it right
back in the bottom half of the inning.
After Shane McCain got Austin Yager
swinging, Eric Hosmer ripped a triple
down the third-base line. McCain hit
Adrian Nieto to put runners at the cor-
ners, before inducing Brandon Sedell
to hit a lazy fly to second.
Unfortunately, Adam Koemer could-
n't handle it, allowing the tying run to
score before making the force at sec-
ond.
"That pop up should've been
caught," Easom said. "That set the
tone in the first inning for the rest of


"Sometimes a bad expe-


rience is better
none at all."

the game."
McCain recovered to get Deven
Marrero on a groundout, but ran into
trouble again in the third. After a. sin-
gle, Nieto blasted a home run that hit
off the top of the wall and went out.
With a runner on second later in the
inning, Trae Goodwyn couldn't han-
dle Eric Acevedo's grounder to third,
first bobbling it then throwing it
away, to put runners on second and
third.
With Andrew Loynaz up, McCain
uncorked a wild pitch, giving Her-
itage its third run of the inning.
"We don't usually play that way,"
Easom said. "Sometimes guys get
uptight on this stage, especially in
high school baseball."
Like it had done all season, John
Carroll attempted a comeback in the
fourth. With a runner on first, Good-
wyn atoned for his earlier miscue by
smacking a single up the middle.

PORT ST. LUCIE - Allapattah
Flats K-8 School added a little
mystery to make reading more fun
for students, parents arid teachers.
More than 235 parents and chil-
dren filled the dining room at Alla-
pattah on May 16. The occasion
for teachers, students and their
parents was to join in a mystery
production that was the brain-
child of Pamela Andes, a seventh-
grade reading teacher at the
school.
According to Principal, Patti
Heffelfinger, "this is our premier
year here at Allapattah Flats K-
School and our 1,275 students and
125-member staff which includes
teachers and support employee's
are part of a team. This particular
event is a wonderful effort to
stress reading and encourage chil-
dren to become enthusiastic
about reading."
The focus of the production was
toward the middle school students
and included teachers as the
actors in this mystery solving pro-
gram titled: "Mysteries In The

Middle."
Parents and children worked
together to solve a mystery by
using reading. strategies presented
in a handbook format.
"We feel that it's important that
students understand how to read


effectively and in a timely man-
ner," said Mrs. Andes "We feel that
parents want to help their chil-
dren, but are not always sure how
to do so. We are offering that guid-
ance to them so they feel more
confident, and hopefully will be


more eager .to help their child
when needed."
"They made this reading. pro-
gram very interesting," said
Michelle Santana, mother of 11-
year-old Alfredo. "It's been my
son's first year here and the staff is
awesome. It's a fantastic place for
children to learn"
The reading mystery program
centered on who stole the school
mascot - in this case an aardvark.
Numerous clues were offered and
teacher-players acted out with
words (that needed to be read)
and made the mystery very inter-
esting to the students.
Principal Heffelfinger pointed
out that the school mission state-
ment is to focus on the individual
student and create a learning
environment that is effective for
that child.
She said they have a special
meaning for their "Gators" mas-
cot, which fits within this state-
ment. Gators, she said, stands for
Great, Achievement, Through,
Outstanding, Research, and Study.
The Allapattah Plats K-8 School
is located at 5241 N.W. Jannebo
St., Port St. Lucie.

PROTECT THE KIDS
Q: Is tooth decay a problem only for older people?"
A: Though dental health for Americans is generally improving as people take better -
care of their teeth, the trend does not necessarily apply to children. Baby tooth decay,
for instance, is on the rise, according to studies. In fact, one federal study found that
decay in bath teeth among children 2 to 5 years old increased from 24 percent in 1998 /
to 28 percent in 2004. Tooth decay in youngsters can impact their lives in many ways,
ranging from problems with permanent teeth come in to systemic illness that can arise
from infections in the mouth.
Leaders of the American Dental Hygienists Association say parents should teach children that the
mouth, just like ears, hands and feet, is a part of the body that needs to be kept clean. Mothers-to-be
can protect their unborn by taking good care of their own oral health. By doing that they minimize
the possibility of passing decay-causing bacteria to their child. Parents should teach their children-
when the age is right-how to brush and floss and how to watch what they eat, all as ways to keep
the mouth healthy. Ask your dentist about ways to influence your children in the right directions on
oral health. O

ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
Illegal immigration, fuel
prices, terrorism and
spending cuts featured
prominently when Republi-
can candidates presented
their platforms to support-
ers in St. Lucie County..
Gayle Harrell, Tom Rooney
and Hal Valeche all pledged
to bring strong conservative
values, if they win the job to
represent District 16 in Con-
gress.
The district spans the
state's east and west coasts
and covers eight counties,
including Martin and St.
Lucie counties.

ness," Mr. Valeche told the
audience at the St. Lucie
County Republican Club.
The Palm Beach Gardens
City Council representative
said many in his party had
strayed from the party's core
values of conservatism and
limited spending.
"It's time we act like con-
servatives, instead of just
talking like conservatives,"
he states in his campaign
literature. :
The Yale University gradu-
ate and former Navy pilot
promised financial support,
training and equipment for
troops, along with reduced
property taxes.
Like the other Republican
candidates, he signed the
"No New Taxes Pledge,"
* which promises not to raise
taxes.
"We've forfeited the mantel
of fiscal responsibility...," he
said. "We're in a funk here as
Republicans."
Mrs. Harrell, an eight-year
member of the Florida legis-
lature, offered the cremation
of a strong energy policy.
_-She-promised a "pro-pro.-,
duction policy" that would
use natural fuel reserves in
this country, such as gas in
South Dakota and nuclear
energy, to help the U.S.
become independent of for-
eign oil.
"We have not built a refin-
ery in the lastv30 years," she
said.
Also topping her list of pri-
orities is a plan to curb ille-
gal immigration.
"We are at a critical point.
I need your help to win this
race," she told St. Lucie
County Republican Club
members.
Candidate Tom Rooney
took a similar stance, prom-
ising to create a database of
the names of illegal immi-
grants charged with
felonies.
Once immigrants listed in
the database complete their
prison terms, they would
face immediate deporta-
tion, Mr. Rooney said to
applause from the audi-
ence.
"If you're here illegally and
you commit a crime, shame
on us for letting you stay
longer," he said.

Port St. Lucie woman pleads guilty
to fraud in adoption case
A 63-year-old woman arrested in Port St. Lucie last July
faces up to eight years in prison after pleading guilty to fed-
eral mail and wire fraud charges.
Judith Leekin admitted to fraudulently collecting more
than $1 million in federal subsidies for 11 disabled children
she adopted in a 20-year period.
In a trial in NewYork, Ms. Leekin said she used false names
on the adoption documents and sent officials a fake report
card for one of the children in her care, according to pub-
lished reports.
She adopted the children from a New York agency, but
lived with some of them in St. Lucie County at the time of
her arrest.
She faces 10 felony charges in St. Lucie County, including
child abuse, amidst reports that she beat and starved the
children in her care.
St. Lucie County officials have delayed prosecution while
the NewYork case is under way.
But local prosecutors have said they hope to secure a 20-
year sentence in the case.
Sentencing in the NewYork case is set for July 15.
Ms. Leekin faces a six- to eight-year prison term and must
return the $1.68 million she collected for the children's care.
Local school wins second Excellence Award
The student council of Fort Pierce Central High School has
brought home a second national award for leadership and
civic service.
The group won the National Gold Council of Excellence
Award - a prize from the National Association of Student
Councils.
It's the second year in a row that the school has captured a
prestigious prize from the national organization.
\ Last year, Fort Pierce Central won the Council of Excel-
lence Award-just short of the gold prize.
It is one of fewer than 100 schools to win the Gold Award.
And is in even a more select group in Florida, where only five
schools can claim the distinction.
The award recognizes civic service and participation in
national and regional events that focus on leadership and
service.
Sheriff dog uncovers cocaine stash
Two Jacksonville men face a felony drug charge in St. Lucie
County, thanks to work of a local deputies and their drug-
sniffing dog, K-9 Punky.
Frederick L Wilson, 33, and Stuart Delancy, 28, face a
charge of trafficking in cocaine, after K-9 Punky discovered a
kilogram of cocaine in the car.
Deputies stopped the car, headed northbound on Inter-
state 95 near Orange Avenue, because it had an obstructed
license tag.
But they soon became suspicious of the passengers and
called for backup.
"When the two men in the car made inconsistent state-
ments, deputies brought K-9 Punky to the car," Sheriff Ken
Mascara said. *
Punky, a black Labrador retriever trained to detect nar-
cotics, alerted to a package in the car's glove compartment,

and help them through their
ordeal and to 'guide them
through the legal system.
Bruce Colton, State Attor-
ney, for the Nineteenth Judi-
cial Circuit which covers the
Treasure Coast, said: "The
Sexual Assault Program advo-
cate provides a comfortable
liaison between the prosecu-
tor and the sexual assault vic-
tim. This helps victims feel
more comfortable coming
into our office to talk about
the traumatic experience.
Although the advocates are
specifically and exclusively
there for the victim, our office
sees their work as very valu-
able to our prosecution."
Mrs. Hill said that the pro-
gram started in 1981 with a
small budget and over time
some grants came in to allow
for paid staff.
"However, we depended
then, and now on the good
graces of volunteers, especial-
ly to assist in these difficult


times," she said "We are
always looking for good car-
ing people to help us, and
Mrs. Lane Frye, our Volunteer
Coordinator, would be happy
to hear from those who would
like to assist."
Volunteers receive intensive
training. They work with
adults and children, both
male and female.
The hotline received 388
calls frorh May, 2007, to April
2008. The program worked
with 324 new clients in that
time and continued to offer
on-going services to 1,262
clients.
At least one advocate per
county is. on-call 24 hours a
day.
"The program gives the vic-
tims solace when they know
that we are there just for them,
their needs and that's our only
purpose," said Mrs. Hill.
All services are free and
confidential
The program encourages


anyone that has been
raped/sexually assaulted, to
contact them at 1-866-828-
7273 (RAPE).

St. Lucie County deputies
serving the fraud warrant
detected a "strange odor of
raw marijuana emitting
from inside (the) resi-
dence," according to the
arrest affidavit. When they
entered, they uncovered a
thriving operation.
The growers had taken
several precautions to
safeguard their drug oper-
ation in the house at 5411
Buchanan Drive, just
south of Midway Road,
Sheriff Mascara added.
To avoid alerting author-
ities, for instance, they
manipulated the house's
electrical system so that
the meter'would not regis-
ter the additional power
used to stimulate the
plants, deputies said.
Several air-conditioning
units and lights helped to


create the right atmos-
phere, they added.
Investigations also found
one gram of cocaine in a
kitchen cabinet, prompt-
ing additional felony
charges of cocaine posses-
sion and grand theft of
utilities against Mr.
Padron.
The operation included
75 mature marijuana
plants - enough to gener-
ate about $1 million for its
owners, Sheriff Mascara
said.
This is the latest mortgage
fraud investigation that
has led to drug-related
arrests in St. Lucie County.
Last November, deputies
arrested 10 people and
issued 18 warrants as part
of an ongoing investiga-
tion.

What happened to 'for the people'?

I am scared. In fact, I am frightened. I'm sure there are
many, many people who feel the same as I do. There are
millions of people just like me - the middle class.
Actually, I would describe us as the working poor. We all
work hard every day of our lives to try to make a living.
People like us; teachers, factory workers, waiters, waitress-
es, bus drivers, gas station attendants,'firemen, policemen,
postal workers, and mechanics are the bak-borie of our
- country. We're the people who truly run things. Without .
us, nothing would be accomplished. Our country% ,
economy would come to a screeching halt. So, I sinceily
believe that it is us. who are suffering the most right now. ..
We're all suffering because of the state of the economy.
People are losing their jobs. Families are losing their
homes. People are having their utilities shut off because
they can't afford to pay their bills. Children are living in
the dark. Their food is spoiling. They don't have health
care.insurance because they can't afford it. I bed each one
of you to please do something to help us if you are elected
president. This great country of ours was built for the
people and by the people. Well, I think the country (the
government) has forgotten about the people.

Tough times call for tough measures

I am disabled, and I receive Social Security Disability
benefits. So, as a family, we mostly rely on mhy wife's
income to support us. If, for some reason, my wife lost her
job tomorrow we would be on the street in less than a
month.
The other day I witnessed a man breaking into a newspa-
per box to steal the change. I was tempted to call the police,
but then I realized he was doing what he had to do to
survive. I do not condone what he did, but I can't blame him
either.
People are going to become desperate if things continue
as they are. People have to choose between paying their
utility bills and putting food on the table. I am so afraid of
what may happen if things get worse. Will I have to protect
my home and family from someone who will do anything
to survive? I hope to God it doesn't come to that.

Say no to gay marriage

It's sad that as a nation we are losing sight of what makes us
what we are.
We are letting illegal aliens enjoy more rights than
citizens. We are feeding the world's poor rather than
focusing on our own malnourished, and now, California is
giving homosexuals the right to call their farce of a rela-
tionship a marriage. I'm glad I don't live in California or
anywhere else that shows no commitment to what a real
family is. There has to be a limit. Not only is a black man
about to run this country, homosexuals are being given the
right to marry. What are we coming to?

Kudos to California

I just heard that the courts in California overturned the
decision to not let Gay people get married. It's about time
that such a progressive state in such a progressive country
finally views all members of society as equals. Let's hope
that the rest of the nation follows suit.

Some thoughts on older drivers

* About 'older drivers;' we are the ones that drive the speed
limit. We drive the legal speed limit on all roads, and so do
99 percent of all older drivers. Read the papers; it's the
young, unlicensed drivers that are causing all the trouble.
Look at all the markers on the side of the roads naming all
of the young, dead people that didn't drive the limit. If you
need to speed, go to a racetrack.

More on older drivers

Hurricane season is back,



Part :2 After the storm


very year that we
don't have a hurri-
cane, we all breathe a
sigh of relief. After awhile,
we all tend to forget the
warnings about prepara-
tion and Safety; it's human
nature.
Many of the injuries,,
illnesses and deaths that
follow a storm are not
from the storm itself.
Downed power lines,
spoiled food, unsafe
water, hot temperatures
and improper use of
.generators are hazards
that remain after the
storm has passed. Even if
there is no hurricane,
heavy rain or wind can
lead to power outages and
flooded roads. Here are
some tips to keep you and
your family safe. For more
tips, visit the Department
of Health's Web site,
www.doh.state..fl. us.
* Food safety: If you've
lost power and have any
doubt about whether food
is still good, throw it out!
* Discard refrigerated
food if it has been at room
temperature for two
hours or more or if it has
an unusual odor, color or
texture
* A full cooler will keep
its cold temperature
longer than a partially
filled one. Pack it with
extra ice or freezer packs
* Thawed food can
usually be eaten if it is
still "refrigerator cold."
* Fight "cross-contami-
nation" by not putting
food on a plate or cutting
board where you have put
raw meat, fish or poultry.
* If there is any risk to
the water supply, drink


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well

and wash dishes with
bottled water, and don't
forget to protect your pets
with safe water as well.
*4Water safety: If your
area is under boil water
advisory, drink bottled
water, but there are ways
to make your tap water
safe.
* Bring water to a full
rolling boil for at least
one minute to kill most
germs. For areas without
power, disinfect the tap
water by adding eight
drops, or about 1/8-
teaspodn, of plain,
unscented bleach per
gallon of water and allow
it to stand for 30 minutes.
If the water is cloudy,
repeat the process. Cover
the disinfected water to
protect against re-
contamination.
* For personal hygiene,
you can vigorously wash
your hands with soap and
tap water. If you are
preparing food, use
cooled down boiled
water, disinfected or
bottled water, and hand
soap.
* It is safe to wash


clothes in tap water, but
dishes should be rinsed in
a bleach solution (1
tablespoon per gallon of
water) Paper goods are a
safe bet while a boil water
advisory is in effect.,
Dehydration: Even if
you do not feel thirsty, it
is a good idea to drink
more water than usual,
especially if you are
involved in physical
activity like cleaning up
after a storm. For infants
and children, check with
a doctor about fluid
intake.
Heat exhaustion: Hot
temperatures, no air-
conditioning and a lot of
physical activity while
clearing away debris can
mean heat exhaustion
and a trip to the emer-
gency room. The elderly,
those with high blood
pressure and people
working in hot environ-,
ments are most at risk.
If you experience.heavy
sweating, paleness,
muscle cramps, dizziness,
weakness, nausea or
vomiting and a rapid
pulse, seek a cool place. If
symptoms are severe and
don't improve quickly,
seek medical attention. To
help stay cool:
* Drink cool, non-
alcoholic beverages
*Seek air-conditioning if
possible
* Take a cool shower or
bath
* Wear light-weight,
light-colored clothing and
a hat
Wear a sunscreen with
SPF 30.
Generator safety:


Generators can be helpful
if the power is out, but
they are dangerous if not
used correctly. Most of
the injuries and deaths
related to generators
come from carbon
monoxide poisoning from
improper use.
Never use generators in
enclosed or partially
enclosed spaces, even
with fans or windows
open. Carbon monoxide
levels can rise very .
quickly and are invisible
and odorless.
If you start to feel dizzy,
sick or weak while using a
generator, get fresh air
immediately. Death from
carbon monoxide poison-
ing can be rapid. If you
have symptoms while
indoors, get medical
attention and make sure
the fire department
determines when it is safe
to re-enter a building.
Install battery-operated
carbon monoxide alarms.
For more tips on gener-
ator safety, visit the
Consumer Product Safety
Commission Web site,
www.cpsc.gov.
We hope that nature is
good to us this year, but if
we do have a storm or a
hurricane, remember that
the aftermath can be as
dangerous as the storm
itself.

Dear Editor,

The County Commis-
sion has recently admit-
ted to losing substantial
amounts of money at the
fairgrounds.
While confession is
good for the soul, it
misses the real and
serious issues with the
county's finances, the
runaway growth in
property tax collections
and the lack of financial
leadership.
From fiscal year 2004 to
fiscal year 2007 property
tax collections increased
95 percent form
$94,941,601 to
$184,989,804, resulting in
a surplus of more than


$85 million in just two of
the county's funds. The
accumulation is nearly
half of the property taxes
collected for-all of 2007.
Even with this huge
surplus the county says
we are in a financial crisis
and threatens residents
with drastic cuts in
services and massive
layoffs of personnel. They
have even threatened to
remove funding for
school resource deputies
who protect our children
The Board of County
Commissioners justifies
the massive run-up in
reserves by saying the
county anticipated in
2006 an economic down-
turn and a collapse of the


Ken Waters


housing industry. If this
were the case, why did
they continue to add
employees (60 in 2006
and 35 in 200)? Why did
they continue to lose, by
their own admission, $1


million a year at the
fairgrounds, not to
mention $1 million a year
at the airport, $1.2 million
a year at the South
Hutchinson Island
Utilities, $1 million a year
at the golf course, $2.3
million a year at the
sports complex (Tradition
Field)?
My math says that this
all adds up to $13 million
since they saw the down-
turn coming.
Oh, I forgot this year,
that makes is $19.5
million.
It's time for a change.

Community Notes


Rams
From page Al
Rick Teasley followed with
one of his own, scoring John
Carroll's second run of the
game. Heritage hurler Ryan
Kahn squelched the rally by
getting Mike Rolfes to
ground to short.
"We swung the bats OK,"
Easom said. "We should've
done more offensively
against their pitcher."
The score stood at 5-2
until Heritage (31-2)
exploded for three more
runs in the bottom of the
sixth inning to put the game
away. Again, it was the Patri-
ots' Nieto in the center of
the action, blasting a long
home run on one of
McCain's few bad pitches of
the night.
"I thought he did an out-
standing job," Easom said of
McCain. "His fastball was
good.
"I think he did a great job
for a junior who just started
.pitching last year."
" McCain (4-2) knew he was

the team's wins..
Mullins', outing against
Keystone Heights in the
state semifinal typlified his

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.

7 IEliminate 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 ybur 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 expectati
customers.


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


S.
Is
�i(


at
ca
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
tomers' able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
ons, level or used car. You can do the
same.


lion ana 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

strive to get them over their fears so that when they grow up, they will seek proper dental care. Along
with pediatric dentistry, their orthodontist, Dr. Christopher Dermody, has joined them to complete your
child's restorative needs. Dr. Chris is there to place braces on any child, teen-ager or adult who has a
need for straighter teeth and/or better bite alignment.
Special approaches are needed in dealing with children's behavior, guiding their dental growth and
development in order to avoid future dental problems, and Dermody Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics
is best qualified to meet those specialized needs. Their caring staff and a fun environment makes their
office a special place. They strive to build a trusting relationship between the child and dentist by
explaining all procedures to your child and making them feel relaxed and informed. Isn't it time you let
your child know about good dental habits, which will give them a lifetime of strong, healthy teeth?
The authors of this 2008 Summer Preview Edition Local Business Update suggest that you call
Dermody Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics today at (772) 879-1879 in Port St. Lucie or at (772)
562-5150 at Vero Beach - they take great pride in consistently striving to exceed the "standard of
care" for pediatric dentistry, today and tomorrow. Visit their website at www.dermodydental.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
Whether they're Naked or
Rodeo, the sandwiches at
Chicago-style eatery, In Da


Dog. House, are crowd
pleasers.
Over the past two years,
owners Maggie Moody and
Kendall Purdy know they've
hit the right formula - good
food at reasonable prices,

served in a friendly, causal
setting.
On any given day, police
officers, staff from down-
town Fort Pierce offices and
residents wander into the
tiny restaurant at 936 South
U.S. 1, where a few stools
line the counter and the
patio offers outdoor seating.
But despite the enthusi-
asm for their food, the own-
ers have not drawn a pay-
check in about two months.
"Right now, Kendall and I
are winging it," Ms. Moody
says. "We're hanging in
there."
The pair is not unlike sev-
eral other area business
owners, who've struggled to
keep their companies sol-I
vent in the last year, says
Terissa Aronson, St. Lucie
County Chamber of Com-
merce director of business
services.
A $14 million budget
shortfall' and declining tax
revenue for the county, a
500 percent increase- in
mortgage foreclosures, spik-
ing gas prices and rising
unemployment mean shop-
pers and cotmunty officials
have little if any disposable
income, observers say.
"It's tough times for all
businesses across the board,
but start-ups and small
businesses have it especially
difficult, because they can't
afford the big discounts that
are helping their larger
(counterparts)," Ms. Aron-
son says.

entrepreneurs have turned

Attendance has mo/ than

and organizers no, see at
least a 20 to 50 percentt
increase in participion.
"We are looking ot for our
members,, and pole want

working opportunities " she
says.
The In Da Ug House
entrepreneurs ad their
landlord mentioiheir busi-
ness at a recent.otary Club
meeting, in t� hope of
attracting new cners.
"We don't advertise

it's helpful to At a mention
there," Ms. Mody says.
Port St. Luc( florist Dani
Jordan knowfirst-hand the
importance marketing.
Since a 60.ercent dip in
sales eradicied her adver-
tising budge she fears rev-
enue will slie even further.
"It's like which came first -
the chickeror egg. Sales are
down, so 'can't advertise.
And I ca t advertise, so
sales are .own," she says.
"But I teUnyself that I first
have to ake care of the
immediate priorities."
Among ftem is the need to
handle deliveries promptly.
In MarchMs. Jordan laid off
her onl' employee, who
helped un the shcp, pre-
pare floral arrangements
and maze deliveries. Since
then, sale's had to close the
store to nake deliveries.
The owners of the Fort
Pierce hot dog Shop also.


make their own deliveries -
offering the service in the
.hope of generating new
business, but juggling the
effort with running the store
at the same time.
The idea has paid off,
though. A new breakfast
menu and free delivery with
orders worth more than $10
have increased revenue
about 20 percent, the own-
ers say.
But sales are still lagging,
thanks to tough economic
conditions that have forced
many to pack. home-made
meals for work, Ms. Purdy
says.
"If someone used to spend
$10 a day for lunch, now
that money is going into
their gas tank, and they're
brown-bagging it," she says.
"The gas prices are threat-
ening to cut me off at the
knees," Ms. Jordan says. "At
these prices, I don't know if I
can, continue to offer free
delivery. But in these tough
times, when people are
reconsidering anything
that's not a basic necessity,
I'm afraid to raise my
prices."
Her counterparts in Fort
Pierce agree, saying that
tacking on an additional 50
cents to their prices would
help pull them out of the
slump. But they've avoiding
that tact for fear that their
customers might no longer
be able to afford their hot
dogs, which range from
$2.25 to $3.35.
Instead, they've branched
out into catering and chil-
dren's parties and continue
business as usual.
On a recent Friday, Ms.
Purdy, who says she "knows
people by their 'dog," asks a
regular if he'd like his usual.


"You've got it," he replies.

turned on, your computer is
very busy indeed.
Understanding that your
computer is busy doing
something all the time can
help ease the fear that
something is wrong. I know
that when a computer user
spends a small fortune on a
new machine, it can be
pretty disconcerting when,
for no apparent reason,
their new machine starts
chugging and groaning.
Many people are also
surprised to find out just
how much "brain power" it,
takes for their computer to
move the mouse. People
don't realize that even
something as simple or
basic as moving the mouse
pointer takes so much of the
computers resources. Often
I will see someone move
their mouse in big swirls
just to make sure the
machine is working, not


realizing that moving the
mouse will actually distract
the computer, drawing its
attention away from the
task at hand.
Let's see just how much
"brain power" it takes your
machine to move your
mouse.
Click the task bar with the
right mouse button and
then click Task Manager. In
Task Manager, click the
Performance tab and take a
look at the CPU Usage

your computer's "brain

updated every second or so.
Move your mouse in big

can see how hard the

If your machine was close
to crashing, "swirling the
mouse" can (and often
does) push it over the edge
and actually cause the
crash you were trying to
avoid!
Frankly, I'm often amazed
that modern machines still
run at all, with all the stuff
they have to do.

St. Lucie County grandfather earns diploma


BY SAMANTHA JOSEPH
Staffwriter
ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
The last time he was a stu-
'dent,' the.Vietnam War was
decades in the future,
compact discs had not yet
been invented and the
moon landing would not
take place for another 20
years.
But Lewis Dampier Sr.,
now 79, decided last year


to take another shot at'
completing his high school
education.
"It's been 64 years since
I've been in school," said
the grandfather, who grew
up in St. Lucie County, just
south of Midway Road,
and attended the White
City School until 1945.
"It's just the satisfaction
of knowing I did it - of
finishing the job I started,"
he said.


' O-.. e i 44 rnliin p eaa-oap.-ed -

f,,iod 8a.


He dropped out of
school at age 16 to take a
job working with heavy
equipment. He was in the
10th grade at that time and
about six weeks shy of
graduation.
"I was really bored with
school, so I started work-
ing and have been working
ever since," Mr. Dampier
said.
But he retired two years
ago when the slump in the
building industry cost him
his job in land clearing and
preparation.
He did not imagine then
that he would decide to
pursue a high school edu-
cation, until he tried to
warn his 34-year-old son,
Kgyina Dampier, to prepare
for the downturn in the
construction industry.
"I told him to go to
school, and he said, 'Dad,
if you go, I'll go.' I really
didn't have any need for it,
but I really wanted to do it
for him." Mr. Dampier
said.
So. last September, the
pair enrolled at St. James
Academy, a private high
school in Fort Pierce.
"A lot of things have
changed," said Mr. Dampi-
er, who enjoyed history
classes. "Things were dif-
ferent in the 1940s. Even
the abbreviations of states
have changed from three
letters to two."

among 160 to graduate this
month as part of the Class
of 2008, said St. James
Academy director James
Mason.
But that's just a fraction
of the number of students
who earned diplomas this
year through the institu-
tion, he said.
About 400 completed the
coursework, but because
of tough economic condi-
tions, only a few opted to
incur the expense of par-
ticipating in the gradua-
tion ceremony.
"For many, this is about
fulfillment. They want a
diploma. They want to fill
a need and finish up," said
Mr. Mason, who taught for,
30 years at public schools'
in Kentucky and St. Lucie;
County before starting the:
academy to work with:
adult student.
"I saw a need for people
to go back and get their
high school diploma, in, a
way where they didn' have
to sit in a classroom," he'
said.
So about six years ago,i
he got the accreditatioril
and launched the private
school' from his home on
South 15th Street in Fort1
Pierce.
Since then, he's taught|
more than 2,000 adults, hej
"said. This year, they ranged'
in age from 18 to 79.
Many were looking toi
change careers and enter)
more stable fields, such asi
nursing, Mr. Mason said.
"It's all been word of!
mouth. We haven't done
much advertising," he
said.
As for Mr. Dampier, he:
said his return to high
school earned him praise
frorn his family and well-
wishers. But despite the�
accolades, he said he's
hanging up his tassels andi
ending his school career
for now.

So, drivers over 60 should
be only allowed to drive
during certain times? I
guess traffic is going to
slow. Older drivers are
pulling out in front of you?
I bet you're under 40. I
think you should find
other means of transporta-
tion so you don't get upset.
If you received the one-
finger salute, you probably
deserved it.
Clinton and Obama
duke it out

I love the way Hillary
Clinton and Barack
Obama are fighting it out
to the end. Mrs. Clinton
"thinks she can retrieve
votes from Florida and
Michigan when .the
National Democratic
Committee ousted them
from having a say.
The committee deserves
their decision. With all the
hoops they have to go.
through, I wonder how
democratic it can possibly
be.
First you have the vote of
the citizens, and then we
have the caucus where
groups decide who has the
most potential, and finally


the "super delegates," who
ultimately decide. When
did the citizen's vote get
lost? I'm not for any of the
candidates, on any side.
Mr. McCain is a bit right of
center, but I wouldn't trust
him to vote for anything
that would help this
country. Can we elect no
one, and start over?
I thought it interesting
that Democrats are down
to choosing between a
woman and a black
American. Those who say
gender or race doesn't
matter are not looking at
the figures. It matters, and
I'm ashamed. Hillary
claims the "hard working
white voters with out
education" and Obama, by
default, those who may
not be hard working and
are "intelligent".
It was reported that two-
thirds of those who voted
in Kentucky didn't have a
college education.
Isn't that a shame. With
more than a remedial
education, I cast my
support to those who love
our country more than
self.

stress out the children the
school systems, the results
are causing them to
question how good of a
student they are. The
results carrie back and it
seems a whole year of
study, homework, and
attendance is diminished
by one lousy test score.
When is the state going to
realize that is causes more
damage than good?

When do kids
learn cursive?

My grandson is in
seventh grade and can't
read or write in cursive.
How many other children

Upset about
older drivers

The person suggested
that olderpeople only
drive during 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
has it all wrong. That is
one of the busiest times of
day. And older drivers are
some of the most careful
drivers out there. I'm upset
over this.

We arrived at Breezes
Runaway Bay late in the
afternoon. It had been a busy
day and we were looking
forward to relaxing since this
was where we were to stay for
the evening. We were greeted
with a cool drink (very much
needed).
The resort was very clean,
and the rooms were well
appointed. All rooms have
balconies - some with a
private plunge pool.
Although this was a large
property, it appeared that it
was compact enough to get to
all areas without it being a
hike.
Dinner was at Under the
Stars - great food and lovely
atmosphere. After dinner, we
were entertained by song,
dance and a comedy routine
that had some of the audi-
ence playing along.
Early the next morning, we
toured the rest of the facility
before leaving. We drove west
along the north coast where
we took a left to climb up a
steep, winding, and extremely
bumpy road on our way to
visit the Greenwood Great
House located on a mountain
overlooking Ocho Rios and
the beautiful Caribbean
Ocean with its incredibly blue
waters. What we found made
the bumpy ride all worth it.
The house was built in 1790
by Richard Barrett, cousin of
the famed poet Elizabeth
Barrett Browning. The Barrett
Family amassed thousands of
. acres of Jamaica land. Unlike
the popular Great House at
Rose Hall, there was little
restoration done at Green-
wood.
The proprietor, Bob Betton,
was our guide through this
house.You can see the
passion he has for all the
antique furniture and original
musical instruments. The
180- degree view from the
veranda, which stretches
from one end of the house to
the other, is where you can

Next on the agenda was
Rose Hall Resort, a very large,
high-rise hotel located near
the Great House at Rose Hall.
The resort was very modem
in design and sparsely
decorated. The lobby had
teak furniture and marble
floors.
The hotel, although sitting
on the oceanfront, had the
feel of a convention center.
However, there was a large
kids area with a water park
that consisted of a lazy river
running through two castles
in the middle of the pool.
Rose Hall Resort was very
busy with guests of all ages.
Lunch was served in its
beachfront restaurant.
Next stop: Half Moon
Resort - a beautiful resort
with white buildings and an
open-air lobby that leads
directly to the ocean. Built in
the early 1950s by a group of
investors, this property has an
old-world charm with
modem touches. The story of
its inception was as interest-
ing as the many celebrity
guests that have had the
pleasure of staying there.
The five-star property sitsf
on more than 400 acres with
beautiful beaches and i
luxurious accommodations.'
The villas that have up to
seven separate rooms and
include a butler and maid.
Apar-72 award-winning
golf course, the 68,000-
square-foot spa, which is an
oasis within an oasis, and 's "
equestrian center offer
something for everyone...
The lobby features pobto-
graphs of the many celebrity
gl ist. rathaLhavc visited in the
pasi. One that struck me was
a picture of John F. Kennedy
and Jacqueline stooping
down and kissing little
Caroline. Beside this picture
was a note written on Half
Moon paper, and it was a last
will and testament of Jacque-
line Kennedy.
Apparently, 10 days after he
was elected president, they
flew to Jamaica, and the flight
was a very bumpy ride.
Jacqueline felt the need to
write this. I thought this to be
quite interesting.
The final hotel and destina-
tion was the Sunset Resort, an
all-inclusive resort in Mon-
tego Bay. The resort has twin
14-floor towers located on the
beach. The d6cor was bright
and airy, and there were five
restaurants and a children's
pool area. The buffet was
large and plentiful.
This was a busy resort with
a.variety of visitors. The
evening included a farewell
event for our groups and
included a calypso band and
full Jamaican fare of seafood
and fruits.
There is.something for
everyone in Jamaica.

RELIGION


Within the pages of Acts, the church is born among other 'firsts'


T he book of Acts is a
sequel to the Gospel of
Luke; it picks up
where the Gospel of Luke
leaves off.
Although Acts is the
second book written by
Luke, a Gentile physician
and historian, it is full of
"firsts." It contains the first
sermon by a disciple and
the first miracle performed
by God through a disciple.
Within the pages of Acts,
you will read of the first
steps to organize the
Christian movement and
the birth of the church.
Other firsts include the first
orchestrated persecution of
believers in Christ,'the first
Christian martyr, the first
non-Jewish convert, and the
first missionary trip.
As we venture behind the
scenes of the true story of
Acts, we take note that God,
the writer, executive
producer and director of
this brilliant, breathtaking
drama, selected Peter and
Paul to play starring roles.
Paul, formerly known as
Saul, a Jewish persecutor of
Christians, had a personal
encounter with Christ (Acts
Chapter 9) and became the
greatest evangelist of the
New Testament.
The apostle Peter, leader
of the 12 original disciples,
preached the first sermon
on the day of Pentecost
(Acts 2). Other key people
include'Stephen, Philip,


DAVID GOODE
Religion columnist
Barnabas, and Cornelius.
Let's take a front row seat,
settle back, and enjoy some
of the captivating scenes
from Acts.
As the curtain opens with
scene one, Jesus appears to
His disciples over a 40-day
period after His resurrec-
tion. He wants them to
know beyond a doubt that
He has risen from the dead
and lives forever more.
On one occasion, they
share a meal and He gives
them a command: "Do not
leave Jerusalem, but wait for
the gift My Father prom-
ised."
He is speaking of the gift
of God's Holy Spirit. Next,
He leads them across the
valley from Jerusalem to the
Mount of Olives and speaks
to His disciples overlooking
the beautiful city of
Jerusalem.
He says, "You will receive


power when the Holy Spirit
comes on you, and you will
be My witnesses, in
Jerusalem, and in all Judea
and Samaria, and to the
ends of the earth." Jesus
says, "You will receive the
power to tell everyone about
Me," and with this, He rises
into the sky and a cloud
hides Him from their sight.
The Disciples stare at the
sky in amazement, feeling
abandoned. However, two
angels dressed in white
appear, stand beside them,
and say, "Men of Galilee,
why do you stand here
looking into the sky? This
same Jesus who has been
taken from you into heaven
will come back in the same
way you have seen Him go
to heaven!"
The curtain closes briefly
and opens with scene two,
following the story line in
beginning in Acts 2:1. On
stage, we find 120 followers
of Jesus in the "upper
room."
Suddenly, so suddenly
that everyone is startled,
there comes a sound from
heaven as a rushing, mighty
wind that fills the entire
house where they are
sitting. Cloven (split)
tongues of fire appear,
separate, and come to rest
on each one of the people's
heads.
Let's pause the action on
stage for a moment so I can'
explain something. Are you


thinking, why tongues of
fire? Tongues symbolize
speech and communica-
tion. Fire symbolizes God's
purifying presence burning
away the undesirable
elements of our lives and
setting our hearts aflame to
ignite others, to communi-
cate the good news of the
gospel of Christ. God sends
His Holy Spirit to dwell
inside of each believer, and
the church is born.
Now, let's join the action
again as the drama contin-
ues, beginning in Acts 2:4.
All 120 followers are filled
with the Holy Spirit and
begin to speak with other


tongues (languages) as the
Spirit (Holy Spirit) enables
them. With our ears and
eyes of imagination, we hear
and see the followers of
Christ, with tongues of fire
resting on them, speak in
other languages. This is a
miraculous attention-
grabber for the internation-
al crowd gathered in
Jerusalem to celebrate the
harvest festival of Pentecost.
All of the nationalities
represented recognize
their own languages as the
followers of Christ speak to
them. The Bible says the
visitors are bewildered and
amazed and even accuse


the followers of drinking
too much wine.
Scene three begins in
Acts 2:15. Peter raises his
hands and shouts, with
great passion, "These men
are not drunk as you
suppose, it is only nine in
the morning. No, this is
what was spoken of by the
prophet Joel." In Joel 2:28a,
the prophet says, "And
afterward, I will pour out
my spirit on all people."
As Peter preaches, the
events of Christ's death
and resurrection are still
hot news, less than two

Thirsty Turtle guitarist covers


classics and creates his own


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Another in an occasional
series about the people who
make the arts happen.
locally, on stage and
behind-the scenes.
Keith Michaud is that
rarity, a full-time musician.
A fixture at the Thirsty
Turtle in Port St. Lucie, the
native of Bristol, Conn.,
moved to Florida in 2000
after the,dot.com bust.
A former techie, he lost
his job when half his
company got laid off and
he came to Florida, the
land of starting over.
He hasn't looked back.
A guitar player since he
was 12, the 32-year-old says
he was influenced by Stevie
RayVaughan and Eric
Clapton, but as he learned
about songwriting, he
began to write his own
songs and cites Johnny
Cash as an influence.
For a performance, he
likes to mix it up, with 60
percent covers of other
musicians and 40 percent
his own work.
"I know the songs I know
and I tailor it to the audi-
ence," he said. "If I'm closer
to home (in Lake Worth)
where people know me, I


play more of my stuff. If
there's an older crowd, I
play older songs. It's a
matter of judging a crowd.
After a few years, you can
feel it out."
Mr. Michaud also fronts
for the band Summer
Blanket, but his latest
project is the release of his
CD, "The Sun, Clouded
Over."
The title comes from the
chapter headings from
Annie Proulx's book, "The
Shipping News." It was a
story that moved him so
much that he got a tattoo of
one of the nautical knots
shown in the book.
"The guy went through a
divorce and he had to
rebuild his life," he said. "It
spoke to me. I was going
through it."
The CD, available on
iTunes, consists of material
he wrote and he plays most
of the instrumentals,
although friends did help.
The artist describes his
work as "Indie-Folk," but he
resists labels.
"When I play my stuff,
people bring up James
Taylor, but I can't see myself
in that kind if vein," he said.
"(I think of) Bob Dylan but
I have more of a punk
attitude, a wild streak.
That's why I mentioned

You represent all the good stuff in life. You live by

The world sees you as calm, but under the sur-
face is a strong nature that gives you the strength
to carry on regardless of the challenges met
along the way. You handle responsibility as well
as anyone in the universe. Being an Earth sign in
Saturn keeps your energy grounded, focused and
growing.
Libra-Sept. 23-Oct. 22
You are a high-spirited person. Failure is never an
option. Your good heart gives you an edge when
making decisions. Your first impressions are the
best. You always emerge victorious. This firm
resolves makes others want to help you when
needed. Let them. Born leadership and justice
are just a few of your great virtues.
Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 21
There are so many things you want to do. You
are the first one out of the starting gate. Just be
sure to set your sights on one main goal before
you begin. Quality is more important than quan-
tity. When frustration sets in, slow down, take a
deep breath and regroup. This second wind will
move you forward and ensure victory.

Patrons enjoy the romantic ambience recently at Vito's Italian restaurant on Hutchinson
Island. Chef Vito Massa worked for six years for Villa Parma before buying the restaurant
last April and making it his own.

In Vito's, chef makes the

former Villa Parma his own


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Dining Review Crew
HUTCHINSON ISLAND
- Long-time fans of the
Villa Parma on Hutchinson
Island in Jensen Beach may
notice the name change
and new d6cor of the land-
mark Italian restaurant, but
they'll find comfort that
the name over the door is
that of ChefVito Massa.
Chef Massa took over as


owner last April after ruling
over the kitchen for the last
six years. Now known as
Vito's, the restaurant offers
the same great romantic
ambience but with a chef
that now calls all of the
culinary shots.
"We've made just a few
little changes," he said.
"Basically, we're just keep-
ing it simple."
Born in the Bronx of Ital-
ian-American descent, Mr.


Massa,' 41, attributes his
gastronomic talent to his
"old-school" grandfather,
who refused to let his grand-
son hang out on the streets
after dropping out of high
school when he was 16.
"The day after I quit
school, he came by and
said I was going to work,"
he said. "He took me td. a

Vito's
From page B3
friend of his, where I began
as a busboy."
The head chef there took
the young Vito under his
wing, teaching him all of
his cooking techniques.
The apprentice .chef con-
centrated primarily on the
part of the menu known as
a "Taste of Italy."
"I still use that as the
foundation of my menu
today," he said.
Vito's extensive menu
today also reflects his for-
mal culinary training at the
New York Restaurant
School, where he graduat-
ed in 1990. The pasta sec-
tion alone offers 16 choic-
es, ranging from spaghetti
carbonara (bacon, onions
and Parmesan cheese in a
light cream sauce) to three
varieties of linguini, egg-
plant rolatini and even
lasagna made, from his
mother's own recipe.
There are also dozens of
chicken, veal and seafood
selections, so it's probably
best to sip on a glass of
wine or enjoy a refreshing
Italian beer while perusing
the menu. Of the latter, the


light and subtle Perroni is
this writer's favorite, but
Vito's also carries the more
robust Birra Moretti.
Along with your drinks,
your server will bring a bas-
ket of Vito's yummy ciabat-.
ta-type bread to the table,
which is prefect for ward-
ing off hunger pains as you
decide on your entrees and
appetizers.
Chef Massa has particu-
larly mastered his soups,
and you'll want to try either
the tortellini en brodo
(meat-filled tortellini in
broth) or the soup of the
day, which happened to be
Stracciatella alla Romana
the day we visited. This
savory Italian-Roman ver-
sion of egg-drop soup is
made of chicken broth,
fresh spinach, eggs and
Parmesan cheese.
If you're still deciding
over entrees at this stage,
you may want to go for the
succulently tender chicken
galante (artichoke hearts,
roasted red peppers, garlic
and lemon simmered in a
white wine sauce) or one of
the seven choices of tender
veal (the veal cacciatore
and pizzaiola are particu-
larly tempting). Seafood
lovers will also have a lot to


choose from, ranging from
tilapia francese (lightly
breaded and sauteed in
lemon, butter and white
wine) to calamari or
shrimp marinara and
zuppa di pesca (shrimp,
clams, mussels, calamari
scungilli in a special mari-
nara sauce). We found the
shrimp fra diavolo (huge
shrimp sauteed with clams
and mussels in a spicy or
mild sauce) to be exquisite.
Desserts vary from


tiramisu to spumoni, but;
for a truly elegant finish,
order the tartufo: Vanilla
ice cream filled with choco-
late covered nuts and
.encased in a hard choco-
late shell.

Vito's is located at 11005
S. Ocean Drive in the
Hutchinson Shoppes plaza.
It's open Monday Through:
Saturday, from 5 p.m. to 10
p.m. For more information,

&


SA Tith the next
\/\/ hurricane season
W V at hand, now is
the time to plan in case
the big blow comes our
way. It is not too early to
plan your landscape so in
the event of a storm, you
don't have to scramble for
days to get it ready. With
careful planning, getting
ready for a storm does not
have to be so draining.
The first thing you
should do before the
hurricane season is trim
all your trees and bushes.
Get rid of any foliage that
is dead or might be
hanging over your house.
If there are any dead or
weak trees, cut them down
so they don't have a
chance to do damage in a
storm.
Take a tour of your yard
and make a list of items
that would be dangerous
to leave lying around. This
list should include patio
furniture, loose garden
ornaments, small potted
plants, yard torches,
arbors and even your gas
grill. Make a list so you
know ahead of time what
you will have to move. If
you have a shed or gazebo,
you might want to add.
extra tie downs to be sure
it stays put and don't wind,
up in Kansas. You can start
early by limiting what you
keep out in your yard
during the peak months of


There are many plants you can put in your
yard that are both attractive and also seem
to hold up fairly well during a hurricane.


JOE ZELENAK
Garden Nook
August and September. If
you own a swimming pool,
you can throw all your
patio furniture into the
pool to help keep it from
traveling across the state.
There are many plants
you can put in your yard
that are both attractive
and also seem to hold up
fairly well during a hurri-
cane.
. Hibiscus, plumbago,
firecracker plant, ixoria,
and even my roses seemed
to hold up well during our
past hurricanes. You may
also want to consider
some native plant varieties
such as palmetto bush,
passion flower, azalea
bush, wax myrtle, live oak
and Southern magnolia.
Native plants are used to,
the high winds that hit
during hurricane season.
They also add a natural
beauty to your yard.


If you live near the
ocean, planting becomes
even more of a challenge
because you need to have
plants that are resistant to
salt spray. Remember that
a hurricane can carry the
ocean mist far inland with
its 70 mph winds.
Plant varieties such as
Indian hawthorne, saw
palmetto, Confederate
jasmine, society garlic,
daylily, pittisporum,
oleander and Mexican
petunia can do well in
areas where salt spray can
be a problem. Gardenia
plants can also fare well
with less than 25 percent
damage and full recovery
after one growing season.
When planting large
trees, you should always
keep the distance from the
tree to the house greater
than the height of the tree
when it is full-grown. If
you have any trees that are
weak or leaning, either
have them secured or
remove them if they are
within striking distance of
your home.
Another thing to look for
are exposed roots. If the

soil has been washed away
from the roots of your
trees, the root structure
may be weak and will
allow the tree to topple
easily. Fill in these areas
with soil to the original
ground level.
With a few common
sense tips and some good
planning, you can have
both an attractive and safe
yard this hurricane
season.
Remember, the Atlantic
hurricane season begins
June 1.

Snook season ends


If you are heading
offshore to catch a big
one or staying on the
beach to play with locals in
the shallow water, start your
trip by catching some bait.
From the House of Refuge
to.the old Holiday Inn, the
fish are in shallowwater, to
about 20 feet. The schools
of bait are going north and
south, but not east.
I wonder what's holding
them there? Could it be the
kings, cobia or the tarpon?
Maybe it's the snook and
permit?
I guess it depends on
whether you are fishing
from a boat or from the
dunes, but one thing is for
sure, you are in the fish.
Offshore, the kings have
been really strong in up to
30 feet of water. Why would
they be anywhere else?
They are hanging out at a
buffet table.
The cobias are coming to
the boat, so have an extra
rod rigged and ready.
Captain Joe from Out Law
Charters jumped two
sailfish in 80 feet of water.
All the fish are close to the
boat because that's where
the baits are.
Anglers walking the beach
can fish the bait schools.


HENRY CAIMATTO
Fishing columnist
Blue fish, snook, tarpon, big
jacks and permit are being
caught on spoons, bait
busters, mirrrodine, and
even on shrimp on a jig
head.
The fish are hanging out
at the edge of the bait
schools. Does it get any
better than that?
There are also plenty of
whiting, so don't forget the
ice.
There have been reports
of lots of trout this week.
Whether fishing the Indian
River or the St. Lucie River,
there have only been slot
fish reported, no big fish.
Fishing early and shallow

PSL resident to join

the UM Hurricanes


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
For years, Andrew Durden
has counted himself as one of
the Gator Nation.
One can't blame him, how-
ever, if he temporarily
changes his allegiance to the
University of Miami - at least
for baseball anyway.
The Port St. Lucie resident
recently made a verbal com-
mitment to play for the Hurri-
canes, joining one of the most
prestigious baseball programs
in the nation.
"I've always been a Gators
fan," Durden said. "But they're
(Miami) the number one
team in the country.
"You can't get better than
that."
Durden joins the highly
ranked squad after an out-
standing campaign with Indi-
an River Community College.
The 19-year-old hit.335 with a
team-high 12 home runs and
47 RBIs this past season.
"It was a lot of fun," Durden
said.
Unfortunately, as a team,
IRCC struggled, finishing 19-
30 overall with a 10-15 record

in the Southern Conference.
Still, Durden relished the
experience of playing at the
collegiate level.
"It was good;" Durden said.
"I thought we could have
done a lot better."
While high school accom-
plishments don't necessarily.
translate to success at the next
stage, Durden - who starred
with the Port St. Lucie Jaguars
- immediately proved he
could handle the advanced
competition.
In the Pioneers' season
opener against Pensacola
Junior College, Durden hit
three home runs while driving
in five, surprising even him-
self.
"It was pretty exciting,"
Durden said. "It was some-
thing I thought I would never
do.
'"I was the leadoff batter
that day. I just tried to go out
there and have fun.
"(The balls) all just flew
out."
It's altogether fitting that
Durden signed with Miami
now. A year ago at this time,
he was helping Port St. Lucie
advance to the school's first
state final four.
Durden came up big in the
regional final against West
Boca; knocking in a run to
give the Jaguars a comfortable
two-run lead in the sixth
inning, The Bulls rallied to tie
the score, but Port St. Lucie
eventually came away with a
5-4win.
"It was pretty intense," Dur-
den said. "It's hard to compare
it (to anything),"
The Jaguars defeated New-
some 7-2 to reach the cham-
pionship, but succumbed to
Venice High School 12-1 in six
innings. Although the team
fell short of its desired goal to
win the title, Durden came
away with memories to last a
lifetime.

Fri uay, may 3, AWU-


Hotel offers fun for kids and golf for dad


remember as a kid how
much I looked forward to
hopping in the car and
heading somewhere on a trip.
It was with that in mind and
with just a touch of trepida-
tion thdt I asked my youngest
where she'd like us to go on a
spring vacation. Keep in
mind that my children's idea
of a vacation consists of
theme parks, swimming,
shopping and eating.
The answer came quickly
from my 8-year-old daughter,
"The Nickelodeon Hotel!"
As a parent I get enough
noise from my kids. I was a
little unsure how much my
wife and I would enjoy a hotel
that caters to kids.
I should have never even
broken a sweat. By the end of
our weekend, the Nick-
elodeon Family Suites by
Holiday Inn in Orlando
(www.nickhotel.com, (866)
462-6425) was declared the
best resort for families by the
kids and parents alike.
Our spacious suite featured
three bedrooms, one being
the Sponge Bob room with
bunk beds, another with a
large queen bed, and a
master bedroom on the other
side from the kids' rooms for
some peace and quiet. The
full kitchen made breakfasts
and late-night snacking quite
easy.
The best thing about the
Nick Hotel is that there is so
much to do there that you
don't even need to leave.
There are Nickelodeon-
themed activities, crafts,


games and events hosted by
the recreation staff all day.
and evening. Everything is
designed to put the kids in
charge and to get them out of
their parents' hair.
If you simply must hit the
parks, the Nick Hotel is
conveniently located just a
few minutes from all of
Orlando's attractions.
With the Nick Hotel being a
truly different family resort, I
felt that a special round of
golf was in order. While
everyone else was enjoying
Sponge Bob, Patrick, Dora
and the rest of the Nick crew,
we golfers slipped out and
discovered our own unique
experience just up the street
at the Ritz Carlton Grande
Lakes
(www.grandelakes.com, (407)
206-2400).
Not every round of golf in
Orlando has to be resort golf.'
At Grande Lakes you get all
the pampered treatment
you'd expect from the Ritz
Carlton. The Greg Norman
signature designed course is
impeccably maintained,
allowing everyone the
opportunity to play golf on
tournament-condition
fairways and greens.
In keeping with the family
theme, children and young
adults 17 and under play for
free with each paid adult
round. With five sets of tees
and generous fairways and
greens, golfers of any ability
will be able to enjoy their
round. Firm, fast fairways
and a lack of rough make for

Golf columnist

long drives and several
options for every shot.
Another defining feature at
Grande Lakes is the Caddie
Concierge Program. The first
of its kind in central Florida,
the program extends the Ritz
Carlton's unparalleled
tradition of service onto the
golf course.
The program pairs each
group with a knowledgeable,
professional attendant,
providing a distinguished
level of service usually
reserved for private clubs.
Designed to enhance your
golf vacation with a unique
brand of personal attention,
each Caddie Concierge offers
a host of convenient services.
if you wish for a more
personal experience, you
may even have your own
personal caddie, walking the
fairways side-by-side just like
a touring pro.
After your round you can

"It was pretty exciting,"
Durden said. "We had a lot of
team chemistry. Everybody
was all good friends."
Part of Durden's value to
the Jaguars, as well as to IRCC
was his versatility. He played
shortstop and centerfielder
with Port St. Lucie, along with
starting and relieving.
With the Pioneers, Durden
spent some time on the
mound, but mostly played in
the outfield, primarily left and
center. Although he's not for
certain, Durden forsees most
of his action with Miami
coming in centerfield.
"As long as I'm playing ball,
it doesn't really matter," Dur-
den said.
While Miami recently fell
from the top spot of the Base-
ball America and Collegiate
Baseball's top 25 polls, it
should make a run at the
national championship. The
team is 44-8 after beating
Clemson 7-1 in the opener of
the Atlantic Coast Conference
tournament, and Durden
can't wait to be part of it all.
"It should be a good fit for
me," Durden said. "They have
good instructors who teach a
lot."

freshen up in the locker room
and then hit the Fairways Pib
to enjoy a tasty lunch along
with a cold beverage while
adding up your scorecard.
With all the play time we
had, my family worked up
quite an appetite. My favorite
and the most fun restaurant
in the'Orlando area is Friday's
Front Row Sports Grill on
International Drive
(wwwfrontroworlando.myfri
days.com, (407) 363-1414).
Filled with 140 TVs and
sports-themed d6cor, the
sports nut in me is in heaven
when I'm here. Couple that
with fantastic food at prices a
family can afford, and you
have a winner!
I enjoyed a cold beer and
some delicious ribs. My wife
had a steak, and the kids
enjoyed salmon, more ribs
and a pizza. After dinner,
while we adults enjoyed
watching our choice of sports
events, the kids hit the arcade
to play a plethora of games.
Nothing beats a great meal
and fun for everyone!
Your next family trip should
be a fun trip for the entire
family. With a fantastic,
comfortable place to stay and
a special place to play, you
should have no problems
making it just that.

KING CARTER ALUMINUM

Patty Carter relocated from upstate New York and has been
in our community for over 35 years. She has sponsored
sports teams in our area and is a member of the chamber
as well as the Aluminum Association of Florida.

Pattyis.father was an aluminum contractor, her idol, and
largely responsible for her decision to enter the aluminum
construction business. Family run, the majority of her
employees have been with her for over 20 years guarantee-
ing top quality workmanship.

Her advice to others starting their own business,
"Never give up, it is the American Dream".

When looking for a company to construct screen rooms,
provide hurricane protection or service-and repairs, think
King Carter!

Red Cross and Hometown

News help residents prepare

for hurricane season


or more
than 125
years, the
American Red
Cross, support-
ed by its loyal
volunteers, has
provided relief
to victims of
disasters and
helped people
prevent, prepare
for, and respond
to emergencies
around the Sarah Ruwe
world. From
house fires to
hurricanes, when disaster strikes the
American Red Cross is there to help.
Here in Florida, we have experienced
first hand the devastating destruction
caused by multiple hurricanes impacting
our region. Hurricanes Charlie, Frances,
Jeanne andWilma, bring back memories
of the Red Cross providing help.
In each disaster, the American Red
Cross has been there to give aid and
comfort as soon as conditions were


safe.
Our combined Red Cross efforts were
responsible for feeding hundreds of
thousands of people throughout east and
central Florida. Our generous donors
responded as well, making sure that the
American Red Cross was there not only
for hurricanes, but for disasters large and
small throughout the year.
Twenty-seven major storms brewed in
the Atlantic in 2005. We were lucky in 2006
with only 5 hurricanes and 5 Tropical
Storms, none of which severely impact
our region. We were even luckier with no
storms in 2007. Without a recent hurri-
cane, many of our residents have become
complacent about Hurricane Season.
Predictions are we will have an active 2008
season. That is why the information in
this special Hometown News and Red
Cross tabloid is vitally important to
everyone.
We are pleased that the Hometown
News has, for the second year in a row,
agreed to produce this special informa-
tional guide to surviving the most

rative efforts will no doubt have a major
impact in saving lives should hurricane
force winds blow our way this year.
Please read the information in this
tabloid and use it wisely to make your
hurricane preparations. Keep this as a
reference; it could help to save your life
or the lives of loved ones.
Pay careful attention to the lists
of materials you will need to build
your own hurricane kit. Apply the
many tips and the Red Cross advice
offered on safety to your personal
situation.
Reference the list of Red Cross
Hurricane Shelters and evacuation
routes to plan how you will react when
hurricane advisories and warnings are
posted for your area. Remember, Red
Cross Hurricane Shelters are to be used
as a last resort. And, not all Red Cross
Hurricane Shelters will be opened at the
same time.
Our mission in preparing this
Hurricane Guide with Hometown News
is to encourage communities through-

disaster before it strikes. Families who

prepare at all or who waited until the last

This special Hometown News
publication is also a reminder to our
residents that the American Red
Cross will be there in the time of an
emergency. From fires to hurricane
recovery, the Red Cross is the first to
respond with relief and the last to leave.
This year, as never before, we urge you to
volunteer to help your friends and
neighbors before and after a disaster
strikes.
With hurricane season upon us,
volunteers are needed to provide
assistance with the Red Cross. Our
local American Red Cross needs
nurses (LPN's and RN's), licensed
menal health counselors, shelter
workers and more. Volunteers must
go through training, so please sign
up now with your local Red Cross


Chapter.
Finally, from all of the American
Red Cross Chapters taking part in
this special publication, we urge you
to maintain your strong financial
support of the American Red Cross.
You, our friends and neighbors,
have generously supported our
efforts to provide immediate help
when disaster strikes our communi-
ties. Without your support, in the
aftermath of a disaster and through-
out the year, it would be impossible
to provide the immediate response
that is the hallmark of the Red Cross.
For your help, and that of the
Hometown News, we thank you.

Sarah Tippet Ruwe is the executive
director of the American Red Cross,
North Treasure Coast Chapter.


Pet owners


urged to plan

for the worst

BY RITA HART
Staff writer
ST. LUCIE COUNTY - Many pet
owners realize too late they haven't
made adequate plans to ensure their
pet's safety in a storm.
The Humane Society of St. Lucie
County urges those who love their pets
to think ahead as we head into hurri-
cane season. The foresight to do so
may just save your pet's life.
At the present time, St. Lucie County
does not have a hurricane shelter that
accepts pets. In addition, owners who
think they can rely on the Humane
Society as a shelter during the storm
will be turned away.
"We can't offer that because we are
not a hurricane-proof shelter," said
David Robertson, operations manager
of the Humane Society. "We are looking
to get as many animals out of there as
possible (before a storm). We utilize a

Choose a safe room in your

house to ride out the storm


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

A storm can unexpectedly intensify
during a hurricane. Your house may
start suffering damage. In these cir-
cumstances, you and your family will
need to gather in a designated safe
room to ride out the storm.
A safe room should be located in the
center of your home. The space, such
as a bathroom, walk-in closet or hall-
way, should be spacious enough to
accommodate everyone and have no
windows. It should also offer a quick
egress should it be necessary to get
out.
Have a mattress in this room as well
for protection in case part of the


room's structure begins to fail.
However, remain in the safe room
until an "all clear" for your area has
been issued by weather authorities.
The safe room should contain an
emergency supply kit, one that
includes adequate nonperishable food
and water for everyone. A first aid kit
and manual also should be on hand.
The first aid kit should have assorted
sizes of bandages, sterile gauze pads,
adhesive cloth tape, roller bandages,
antibiotic ointment, aspirin or other
pain reliever, antacid tablets, antisep-
tic wipe packages, hydrogen peroxide
for cleaning wounds, rubbing alcohol,
iodine, disinfectants, scissors and
tweezers, and non-latex gloves.

Forecasters foresee active season- with a catch


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer


Forecasters predict 15 named
storms during the six-month hurri-
cane season, which begins June 1.
Eight of these storms will strengthen
into hurricanes, forecasters said, and
three will pack at least a Category 3
wallop, with winds of 110 mph or
higher.
Colorado State University meteorol-
ogy professor William Gray, a veteran
hurricane forecaster, and associate
Phil Klotzbach unveiled their 2008
predictions in early April.
"We foresee a well above-average
Atlantic basin tropical cyclone season
in 2008," they wrote in their April 9
forecast.
Facing questions about the out-
look's accuracy, the forecasters
included a caveat: "Everyone should
realize that it is impossible to precise-
ly predict this season's hurricane
activity in early April."
Before the start of the hurricane
season, National Oceanic and Atmos-
pheric Administration forecasters also
offer an outlook. Mr. Gray, who first


popularized seasonal forecasts 25
years ago, continues to draw the most
attention - even though the accuracy
of such forecasts is questionable.
Both Mr. Gray and NOAA forecasted
active seasons for 2006 and 2007. Both
years were quiet for the tropics.
In 2005, when the Atlantic produced
a record 28 named storms, neither Mr.
Gray nor NOAA had predicted such
tumultuous weather. They had, how-
ever, predicted 2005 would prove to be
an above-average year.
Critics argue that forecasts lull resi-
dents of hurricane-prone areas into a
false sense of security. Regardless of
the seasonal forecast, the National
Hurricane Center in Miami-Dade
County called on residents of hurri-
cane zones to take proper precautions
for tropical weather.
In Florida, where much of the popu-
lation lives within 50 miles of the
Atlantic Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico,
fanfare and hype accompany the
annual predictions.
"We have increased our seasonal
forecast from our initial early Decem-
ber prediction," the Colorado State
University forecasters wrote.

American Red Cross Disaster Relief trucks line up to deliver supplies to those in


need.
Their forecast also included above-
average chances that a storm will
strike the United States along .the


Atlantic or Gulf coasts: "We anticipate
an above-average probability of Unit-
ed States major hurricane landfall.".

great group of foster parents, boarding kennels and
vets."
Mr. Robertson said the last time a hurricane was
approaching, the Humane Society sent animals as far
as Georgia, Colorado and NewYork to keep them safe.
The Humane Society has put together a hurricane
preparation kit in an effort to educate the public on
how to prepare their animals for a storm.
"We even take the kits into schools," said Mr.
Robertson. "We teach people to plan ahead and pre-
pare a 'pet preparation packet,' which includes any-
thing you will need for your pet to survive away from Hv
home."
Those items include food, bottled water, a litter box,
litter and scoop for cats, garbage bags, toys, a small
first aid kit, and vaccination and veterinarian records.
Mr. Robertson said he could not stress enough the
importance of microchips for pets, which are offered -
at the Humane Society of St. Lucie County for $25. , '
"A microchip is just critical in these situations," he . \1,ll
said. "The last time we experienced an event like a . ".
hurricane, our shelter was pretty near empty, and not il
long after the hurricane we were full again with stray
dogs and cats. If those pets had microchips, we could
call and say, 'Hey, your dog is safe here at the Humane
Society.'"'
For more information on obtaining a microchip,
contact the Humane Society at (772) 461-0687 or visit
them in person at 100 Savannah Road, Fort Pierce. You Photo courtesy of the American Red Cross

Charge cell phone batteries.
* Locate water valves, gas valves and
main electric breaker. Have instructions
on how to turn them off.
During the storm, make it your main
concern to stay safe. Do not venture
outside, even if the raging winds and
rain calm down. After the "eye" of storm
pass, the weather will get dramatically
worse very fast. The hurricane will be
over in a few hours. Do not endanger
your life or the lives of others by going
outside.
When inside, stay away from windows
and doors.
If your pets appear agitated, put them
in their carriers.
If the news reports tell you to go to
your safe room, do it. If you see that
your house is suffering, head to your
safe room immediately and place a
mattress over you.
Only use the phones for emergencies.
The time after the storm should be
used for recovery. You should not go
outside until the news reports tell you it
is safe, and even then proceed with cau-
tion. Attempt to keep your emotions in
check. Seeing things you have worked
for destroyed is overwhelming, but the


important thing to remember is that
you and your family survived.
Remember, the American Red Cross
will be there to help you following a
storm.
The American Red Cross also reminds
you to:
* Keep children and pets inside a safe,
secure location until you have had time
to examine the damage.
* If damage is severe, find a safe way
to get the rest of the family to a better
location. Call your insurance company.
Take pictures of the damage, if any. Talk
to FEMA.
* When you venture outside, be atten-
tive-of downed power lines.
Listen to the news report to find out if
it is all right to drink the tap water. If
not, continue drinking bottled water.
* If your power is out listen to the
news reports on a portable radio to see
if they are reporting major outages. Call
the power agency for updates. Your
power could be out for a several days, be
patient. If you are short of supplies, lis-
ten to the news to find out where these
items will be offered in your area. Watch

HOMETOWN NEWS


American Red Cross urges residents to prepare for


the potential of a hurricane with a plan and kit


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

With a potential disastrous hurricane
that may be as strong as a Category 5, the
American Red Cross is urging area resi-
dents to begin preparing for the poten-
tial of disaster now. Families can and do
cope with potential disasters by prepar-
ing in advance and working together as a
team. Knowing what to do is your best
protection and your responsibility. The
National Weather Service, the Federal
Emergency Management Agency and
the American Red Cross urge each and
every family to develop a family disaster
plan. The key to preparedness is having a
plan. Here are the steps to follow to cre-
ate and implement a family disaster
plan:
Gather information about hazards that
would be created by the hurricane in
your area by contacting your local Amer-
ican Red Cross, Emergency Management
or the National Weather Service. Learn
your community's warning signals and
eVacuati6n plan.
Meet with your family to create a plan.
Discuss the information you have gath-


ered and why it is important to prepare
for a hurricane. Plan to share responsi-
bilities and work together as a team.
Ask an out-of-state friend to be your
family contact for everyone to call if the
family gets separated for any reason dur-
ing the hurricane. After a hurricane, it is
often easier to call long distance.
Have a plan for your pets - be aware
that pets are not allowed in American
Red Cross shelters. Other arrangements
should be secured beforehand.
Take the time now to put together a
Disaster Supplies Kit. Your kit should
include enough supplies to meet your
needs for at least three days. Store these
supplies in sturdy, easy to carry, water-
resistant containers, such as backpacks
or duffle bags. It also is a good idea to
keep a smaller kit in the trunk of your car.
Your disaster supplies kit should
include:
* A three-day supply of water (one gal-
lon per person per day) and food that
will not spoil
* One change of clothing and footwear
per person - - ...
* One blanket or sleeping bag per per-
son
* A first aid kit, including prescription

Precautions
From page 14
for Red Cross emergency response
vehicles coming through your neigh-
borhood with food and water.
* If you are using a generator, follow
operating instructions and precautions.
* Never use outdoor grills inside the
house.
* Realize finding a contractor is going
to be difficult because they are going to
be in high demand. Be careful of
scams.
* Be cautious while working around
your house, taking down shutters and
picking up debris.
* Keep things in perspective. If your
power or A/C is out, know that it could
be stressful. Treat both neighbors and
strangers with respect; this is a tense
time for everyone and we are all worn
out. The time before and after a hurri-
cane is nerve- racking for everyone.
However, there are still precautions
and responsibilities to take in order to
help secure you and your family's safe-
ty.
If you need assistance in planning
how to prepare for, survive and recover
from a hurricane, contact your nearest
American Red Cross chapter for
brochures and other helpful informa-
tion. You may also find information
online at www.redcross.org.

HOMETOWN NEWS


American Red Cross offers food safety tips when


hurricane or tropical storm threatens


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS


If a hurricane impacts our area, you
might be cut off from food, water and
electricity for days. By preparing emer-
gency provisions, you can turn what
could a life-threatening situation into a
manageable problem. As we well know,
it is possible that a hurricane can cut off
your food supply for two weeks. There-
fore, you should prepare a supply that
will last that long.
The easiest way to develop a two-week
stockpile is to increase the amount of
basic foods you normally keep on your
shelves and store them. Here are some
tips from the American Red Cross on
planning what to do for your food sup-
ply before a hurricane strikes:
Storage Tips
* Keep food in a dry, cool spot - a
dark area if possible.
* Keep food covered at all times.
* Open food boxes or cans carefully so


that you can close them tightly after
each use.
* Wrap cookies and crackers in plastic
bags, and keep them in tight containers.
* Empty opened packages of sugar,
dried fruits and nuts into screw-top jars
or air-tight cans to protect them from
pests.
* Inspect all food for signs of spoilage
before use.
* Use foods before they go bad, and
replace them with fresh supplies, dated
with ink or marker. Place new items at
the back of the storage area and older
ones in front.
It is important to keep in mind the
shelf-life of foods for storage and rotate
when necessary. Foods like wheat, veg-
etable oils, soybeans, instant coffee, tea
and cocoa, salt, white rice, dry pasta,
and powdered milk in nitrogen-packed
cans maybe stored indefinitely in prop-
er containers and conditions. Canned
vegetable soups, peanut bunei. jelly,
ready-to-eat cereals, canned fruits, fruit
juices, and vitamin C need to be used

Expert Shutter Services boasts two decades of protection


By DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer

PORT ST. LUCIE - Michael Heis-
senberg has spent more than half of his
life protecting other people's posses-
sions.
When a hurricane's cone of probabili-
ty begins to aim towards the Treasure
Coast, many of the area's residents hide
behind shutters manufactured by his
company, Expert Shutter Services, one
of the area's oldest hurricane shutter
manufacturers.
Twenty years ago last February, he and
his wife Jamie came from Palm Beach
County to Port St. Lucie with their twin
toddlers Chris and Mike in tow. Having
already been employed in the shutter
industry, they'd seen a condominium
market ripe for the tapping and deter-
mined to make their fortune here.
Today, Mr. Heissenberg is 43, and his
company a household name along
Hutchinson Island and throughout Mar-
tin,St. Lucie and Indian River counties.
"Eighty to 90 percent of our business is
referrals," he said. "Word of mouth and
reputation is everything to us."
Expert Shutter Services developed in
tandom with Port St. Lucie over the
years, and now employees 24 workers
and encompasses both shutter manu-


facturing facilities and a metal bending
business.
A third of that workforce is family, "
Mr. Heissenberg proudly adds, includ-
ing his twin sons.
"We really mean it when we say, 'fami-
ly owned and operated," he said.
The 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons
were good for the family's business but
taxing for the body and soul, he says. So
many people called looking for shutters
after the storms that the company was
forced to turn them away in order not to
grow too fast.
"It cost us a lot of jobs because people
didn't want to wait," he said. "But we
were able to service our customers by
remaining slow and steady."
That's the reason that the company is
still around today, he says, unlike others
who overextended after the storms and
are no longer in business. Nowadays,
Expert Shutter Services offers every type
of shutter system imaginable, including
Bahamas and colonial hinged shutters,
rolling and accordion-style shutters,
econo span screens and standard and
winged storm awnings.
The company is also on the cutting
edge of development as well. It currently
has a patent pending on an accordion-
style shutter system designed in-house
that's licensed and currently being dis-

tribute throughout the United States
and the Caribbean.
The company's latest invention - still
in the works - is designed to revolution-
ize the rolling shutter industry. It's a
rolling shutter housing that will weigh
44 percent less and be several inches
smaller than anything currently on the
market.


"Primarily what we're trying to do is
improve the quality and reduce the
cost," he said. "It will be much smaller,
lighter and less expensive."
Expert Shutters started its metal bend-
ing division two years ago and has
already earned renown for its success in

Tips offered on cleaning up after storm


Confirm that there are no pox\er lines
entangled in. your work area and that
there are no large, dangling limbs that
could fall and hit you once you start
working. - ::
If a large tree nee-d toi be taken down,
it is best to leave that to an expert.
After our la.[ stoNrm in 2006i, most of
my tree debris was already on the ground
and simply had to be cut up and taken to
the curb.
Get at the little stuff
Once you have all the large debris
removed, cut up and at the curb, the next
thing you should do is re-survey your
yard.
Look for other damage that may have
been hidden by the larger tree branches.


Cleaning up after a storm
The best way to clean up your yard
after a storm is to be prepared before one
hits. Make sure you have the right tools
and a good plan of action to follow.
Here are some tips to keep in mind.
Get a chain saw
Get a good quality chain saw. Gas is
preferred over electric because they have
more power. Also, your electricity may be
out after a storm. Unless you have a gen-
erator, an electric saw will be useless.
Survey the damage
Before cutting trees, be sure to take a
full survey of the yard.

"I think I've got a pretty good feel for
metals, which is why we've had so
much success," he said. "You have to
know how the metals are going to
react."
