IRSC brings back
Ed Massey

After only a month in retire-
ment, Ed Massey is back at
the helm of Indian River State
College.
Dr. Massey was rehired last
week after the college's board
of trustees voted unanimous-
ly to bring him back as presi-
dent.
Dr. Massey reluctantly
retired on June 30, an action
that was required under the
terms of Florida's Deferred
Retirement Option Program.
However, the program's
regulations allow a retiree to
become re-employed, under
certain conditions.
After being retired for one
month, participants may be
hired back. If rehired, howev-
er, the employee must forfeit
11 months of retirement ben-
efits in their first year of
rehire.
In Dr. Massey's case; he will
receive a $585,000 lump sum
retirement payment through
his participation in the pro-
gram. He earned $289,610 in
salary during the 2007-2008
budget year and will forfeit
$108,063, representing 11
months of retirement checks.
In last weeks trustees'
meeting, the board approved
a 2 percent increase in pay for
Dr. Massey, effective Aug. 1.
The same 2 percent
increase was granted to all
of IRSC's employees.

City's police chief moving on to new career


By Rita Hart
Hart@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST. LUCIE After
27 years with the Port St.
Lucie Police Department,
12 of them at the helm,
Police Chief John Skinner is
retiring, effective Aug. 31.
Chief Skinner, 53,
announced his retirement
at a press conference on
Aug. 6.
"I hope I've brought you
leadership you can be
proud of," Chief Skinner
told the crowd present for
the announcement.
"I beat the odds," he said,
reminding them that the
average'time for anyone to
remain in a police chief's


position is four years.
Chief Skinner's retirement
will not be an idle one. He
has accepted the position of
Major League Baseball's
managing director of secu-
rity and facility operations
for all minor leagues, a job
the lifelong baseball fan had
coveted for a long time.
In his new position, Chief
Skinner will establish train-
ing programs for minor
league players to increase
security awareness. He will
also act as liaison between
minor leagues and the local
law enforcement agencies
in the cities that host those
leagues to address any
security issues.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY Six
candidates vying for .Rep.

forum designed to showcase
their environmental priori-
ties.
The "Green Forum" was

trict 81 seat were present,
including Republicans
Michael DiTerlizzi, Jeff Gor-

of our great game is para-
mount," said Jimmie Lee
Solomon, executive vice-
president for Major League
Baseball operations in a
statement. "John is unique-


ly qualified to fill this posi-
tion, and he will be an
invaluable resource for the
clubs and the players
throughout minor league
baseball."
A native of Detroit, where
,he,began his law enforce-
ment career, Chief Skinner's
love of baseball started in
childhood. He has worked
part-time for Major League
Baseball as a security con-
sultant since 1990, and pro-
posed to his wife, Tracey, at
Dodgertown inVero Beach.
"When I was a kid, we had
to play baseball outside
instead of on a computer,"
he said the day after
announcing his retirement.
"I'm such a dinosaur we


didn't have video games
then."
Chief Skinner said his suc-
cessor may not be immedi-
ately named.
"I anticipate there will be
a selection process with a
search team," he said.
In the interim, Assistant
Chief Brian Reuther will
serve as acting police chief.
At the news conference,
Chief Skinner said he feels
"in my gut" it is time to
move on.
"I've taken this organiza-
tion as far as I can take it,
and now it's up to the next
man or woman to take it to
the next level," he said.

ASK ]R. STRANA


TIPS FOR EASIER CHEWING
Q: Do you have any suggestions for dealing with chewing difficulties?
A: A person can have difficulty chewing for a variety of reasons. The problem could come
as a side effect of cancer treatment, for instance, or be associated with a physical condition
like stroke or muscular dystrophy. It can also come about as a result of a condition called
xerostomia, which is a shortage of saliva. Dry mouth is one of the more common
conditions of aging. Here are some tips to bear mi mind if you or a loved one has trouble '
chewing. n
Use ground meat rather than chunks or slices in certain recipes. You could take that a step further by using
a food processor to puree the meat. It's best to cook the meat first. The longer you cook vegetables, the
softer they will become. If you puree the vegetables in the water in which you cook them they will be
easier to eat. The riper a piece of fruit is, the softer it will be. Bake or stew fresh fruit to make it easier to
chew. Dry food will be easier to eat if you soak it first in, depending on the food, obviously, in milk, gravy,
broth or yogurt.
It's important to get nutrition, so talk with your dentist about other strategies for easier chewing.

County tourism council kicks off campaign /
11li


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
ST LUCIE COUNTY The
St. Lucie County Tourism
Development Council will
launch the county's new pro-
motional campaign "Visit and
Explore St. Lucie Florida,
Jewel of the Treasure Coast,"
on Sept. 10.
St. Lucie County contracted
with Blair Advertising of Fort
Pierce to develop a new logo, a
new theme and a new way to
involve local businesses in
promoting tourism in St.
Lucie County. Blair Advertis-
ing has developed a campaign
to enhance the county's
tourism position in Florida
and clearly define St. Lucie
County as a lifestyle tourist
destination.,
"The benefit of the guide is
to bring tourists into St. Lucie
County and to spark the econ-
omy, which is low at this


point," said Alice Cornelius,
project manager with Blair
Advertising. "When tourists
come, of course, there is
money. Hopefully, they'll
want to reside here and start
their own businesses."
The new logo depicts a styl-
ized map of Florida, featuring
a Hibiscus with three petals,
representing Fort Pierce,
Hutchinson Island and Port
St. Lucie. The campaign
theme was recommended by
TDC board member Paul
Taglieri.
The focus of the campaign
is on a number of tourist mar-
kets, including the traditional
seasonal visitors and the resi-
dents of South and Central
Florida. The campaign will
position St. Lucie County as
an attractive lifestyle destina-
tion by promoting the coun-
ty's natural beauty, abun-
dance of outdoor activities
and quality of life. It will


"The benefit of the guide is to bring tourists into
St. Lucie County and to spark the economy,
which is low at this point"

Alice Cornelius
project manager


appeal to people who are
seeking an alternative to the
crowds and frenetic pace of
Florida destinations such as
Miami and Orlando.
The tourism campaign will
feature The St. Lucie County
Travel Guide. This publication
will be distributed to 250,000
potential visitors. It wilJ
enable sponsors and local
businesses to develop dis-
counted accommodations,
dining, sports and activity
packages to attract tourists.
"We are very excited about
the new campaign and the
light it shines on St. Lucie
County," said Commissioner


Doug Coward, St. Lucie Coun-
ty Tourism Council Chair-
man. "The annual Travel
Guide will once and for all
showcase St. Lucie County
and all that it has to offer."
For additional information
about The St. Lucie County
Travel Guide, contact Blair
Advertising at (772) 465-4654
or visit the agency's Web site,

More than 550 turn
in old medications

I:,In what St. Lucie County
Sheriff Ken Mascara called
an overwhelming response,
556 residents responded to
"Operation Safe Medicine
Cabinet" on Aug. 2, turning
in approximately 100,000
assorted medications.
The operation was a joint
Effort between the Sheriff's
SOffice, St. Lucie County Fire
.District and three area phar-
.macies.
:In exchange for $5 gift
cards from CVS, Walgreen's
and Wal-Mart stores, citi-
zens were asked to dispose
Sof expired and unused pre-
scription medications to
prevent abuse of the drugs
by others;
The program will continue
during normal business
hours at the Sheriff's Office
Located on 4700 W. Midway
Road in Fort Pierce, where
residents can continue to


dispose of old medications.
"We thank those members
of the public who got
involved," said Sheriff Mas-
cara. "They made their
homes and their neighbor-
hoods safer by getting rid of
these drugs."

Tavern patrons
chase suspect

After a disruptive patron
refused to leave the Pop-A-
Top Tavern on Southwest
Bayshore Boulevard on Aug.
3, the bartender called 911.
While police were en
route, the bartender called
911 again to advise them the
suspect, Darin Ray Lanham,
was spotted bending down
between cars in the parking
lot slashing tires with a knife
and was now being chased
by bar patrons on foot.
When police arrived, Mr.
Lanham, who lives at 779
S.W. Broadview St. in Port St.
Lucie, was being detained
by several bar patrons. Sev-
eral witnesses told police
Mr. Lanham had bran-
dished the knife aggressively


at one of the patrons, threat-
ening to cut him.
Four vehicles in the bar's
parking lot sustained
slashed tires.
Police arrested Mr. Lan-
ham, 42, and charged him
with aggravated assault and
three counts of misde-
meanor criminal mischief.
In addition, Mr. Lanham
faces a felony criminal mis-
chief charge because the tire
damage to one of the vehi-
cles exceeded $1,000.

Judge to remain
on bench

After atwo-day hearing in
April before the state Judi-
cial Qualifications Commis-
sion, the panel has recom-
mended that St. Lucie
County Court Judge Cliff
Barnes retain his seat on the
bench, but face a public rep-
rimand.
The hearing was the result
of misconduct charges
against Judge Barnes for
exhibiting practices "unbe-
coming a judicial officer."
The charges stemmed


from a guest column Judge
Barnes wrote in 2006 that
was printed in a local news-
paper and for a petition he
filed in which he criticized
the'offices of the sheriff,
public defender and state
Attorney for their handling
of first appearance hearings.
Judge Barnes was found
not guilty of those charges.
However, the panel found
him guilty of not going
through appropriate chan-
nels to address judicial con-
duct and of presenting the
appearance of partiality in
criminal proceedings by fil-
ing the petition.
SFlorida's Supreme Court
will now permit oral argu-
ments from all parties
involved in the action and
decide whether or not to
accept the recommenda-
Stions of the panel, as well as
what form of discipline, if
any, to take against Judge
Barnes. They also have the
option of dismissing the
charges.

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.M^jj

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 i?7';": : '
how to run your business. I "My cu:
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your epcta
customers. xpectath


Virtually every car dealer f 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 pnce ol the car
and your profile in such a manner that it is not
noticed by your customers This Is lust plain
wrong I used to charge a deae leree (54951
and when I slopped charging ,t 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 d.ong the same nthng did not make II
coireci


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

SAPPHIRES
Sapphire is the second
hardest natural mineral.
Blue is by far the most
popular color for sap-
phires, but they can be
any color, including yellow,
green, white, colorless,
pink, orange, brown, and
purple. Padparadscha is
the name fora rare
orange-pink variety of sap-
phire and it has a higher
value than most blue sap-
phires. It is still considered
to be one of the rarest
sapphires.

Sapphires with inclusions
of tiny, rutile needles,
exhibit an optical property
called asterism. This is the
star shape effect seen in
the star sapphires and .is
usually only seen in cabo-
chon cuts.
There is a rare variety of
sapphire that exhibits dif-
ferent colors in different
light. A.similar effect is
also seen in Alexandrite.
Sapphire is believed to,
offer healing properties for
colic, mental illness, and
rheumatism. It is also con-
sidered an antidepressant.
Whether this is true or just
a legend we may never
know

What happens in the rain?

Why isn't there a covered porch at the new special needs
center in St. Lucie County?

Financial institutions are
not our responsibility

We certainly deserve better from our federal government
and financial institutions than what has transpired over the
past few months. It is unbelievable that we (the taxpayer)
need to bail out major banks. On top of that, Fannie Mae
and Freddie Mac, who are federal institutions, also need
'help to remain solvent.
Senators who are in charge of overseeing our nations
well-being were probably more interested in remaining in 4
an ill-gotten office. Mr. Syron (CEO of Freddie Mac)
collected a nearly $20 million salary last year for breaking
Sthe institution.
How do you get these jobs?
There was a time banks and financial institutions were
thought to be very conservative and wouldn't dream of
extending credit to anyone who was thought unable to pay
back the loan with interest. "No" was as common as "yes"
when applying for a loan. In my life I bought three houses
with a help of a loan. The money for the first house went for
the second in Pembroke Pines, which was paid off in eight
years.
My present house was paid off in three. Extremely bad
circumstances (medical, etc.) may result in having to give
up a house. This has always been an unfortunate case.
However, we are now experiencing foreclosures from
homeowners who got a good deal from a mortgage compa-
ny who wants to move property. The new homeowner
believes they can afford a half-million dollar house with no
money/steady, good-paying job.
It's sad, but should the taxpayer help for stupidity on all
parts?
Just when I thought I heard the worst, there was an article
about the corruption in our own state.
The Forida State of Financial Regulation granted 10,000
licenses for mortgage and loan originators. $85 million was
lost to scammers. 922 licenses were issued to larceny-
felony persons.
These are people who have access to everything about
you. We seem not to be able to clean up this mess in our
Sown backyard.
There was a famous American that answered a question
about our country in saying, "America is business." We have
thrived on capitalism, and it seems to work. I have great
respect for the small business that keeps the books and
thrives on making the right decisions. I detest those who
,play the high stakes game for profit and cry to the Feds to
bail them out. No small business has this advantage. We in
the United States of America deserve better

Back off code enforcement

I recently wrote in a rant lamenting my second notice in
three years from county code enforcement. .

Lifestyle changes,
regular exams
can lower colon
cancer risk

Doctors at UCLA have a
checklist of steps to take to
minimize the risk of colon
cancer, one of the most
preventable of cancers and
the second leading cause of
cancer deaths in the United
States.
These tips include
regular colon screening,
beginning at age 50 if there
is no family or personal
history; consumption of a
low-fat diet and about 25-
30 grams of fiber a day
from whole grains, leafy
green vegetables, nuts and
beans; 20-30 minutes of
exercise at least three days.
a week; not smoking; and
reporting to your doctor
any symptoms such as
blood in the stool, unex-
plained weight loss,
noticeable changes in
bowel habits or other
intestinal complaints.
Remember that the
absence of symptoms
doesn't mean there's no
disease, so talk to your
doctor about appropriate
screenings for you.

Antibiotics before
dental work may
not be necessary

For the first time in 10
years, the American Heart
Association has updated its
guidelines about which
patients should receive
antibiotics before having
dental work. Some patients
were told to take the
antibiotics because of the
risk of infectious endo-
carditis, an infection of the
heart's valves or inner
lining that is caused by
bacteria in the blood-
stream.
The new guidelines
recommend antibiotics
only for those patients at
the highest risk of develop-
ing endocarditis, and
include people with a
history of the infection,
those with a prosthetic
heart valve, those with
congenital heart abnor-
malities and those with
valvular disease after
transplantation.
People with heart
murmurs and other who
were told they needed


antibiotics should talk to
their dentists about
whether they still require
antibiotics. Those patients
who still need antibiotics
should be given them for
any procedure below the
gums, where bleeding is
possible, including deep
cleaning. It's very impor-
tant that a dentist know
about any heart problems
before beginning any
dental procedure.

From the Mayo Clinic
Health Letter, June 2008

Determining
sunscreen protection
means reading labels

To tell if your sunscreen
offers protection from both-
UVA rays that are deep-
penetrating, cause prema-
ture aging and are a
contributor to melanoma,
the most deadly form of
skin cancer, and UVB rays,
that cause sunburns and
other, less serious forms of
skin cancer, look for a
product that says it is
broad-spectrum. SPF
factor only reflects protec-
tion against UVB rays. A
broad-spectrum product
contains ingredients such
as avobenzone, oxyben-
zone, titanium dioxide and
zinc oxide, among others. A
rating system for UVA
protection is under FDA
consideration.
For now, check labels and
stay out of tanning beds,
which give off chiefly UVA
rays. The melanoma rate


among young women is
rising, and many experts
blame tanning beds.
Remember, there is no safe
tanning.

Exercise improves
cancer survival
rates in men

A new study, published
in the British Journal of
Cance;, has shown basic
daily exercise, defined as
walking or cycling for at
least 30 minutes a day had
a 33 percent high chance
of surviving cancer than
those who exercise less or
did no exercise at all.
Men who walked or
cycled between 60-90
minutes a day were 16
percent less likely to get
cancer at all. Researchers
don't know when the men
began exercising or if
exercise was a part of a
generally healthier
lifestyle. Nevertheless, it's
one more good reason to
exercise to stay healthy
and one more reason to
exercise, as best you can,
even with a diagnosis of
cancer.

Finding the real malfunction culprit


S sometimes when
computers malfunc-
tion; the timing can be
coincidental causing you to
chase your tail around
trying to fix it.
Most of the time when
your computer starts acting
squirrelly, it's good practice
to consider the last thing
that happened right before
the problem popped up and
then try to undo whatever it
is that was changed.
But then again, some-
times undoing the last thing
that happened can be a red
herring, causing you to spin
your wheels for hours. Take
this recent e-mail 1 received
from Gedrge for instance:
"Hi Sean. Read your
articles every week and look
forward to them. It's the first
article I look for in Home-
towln News.
"Sean, I was having a
problem with my Microsoft
mouse, so my son gave me
an optical mouse to install. I
just disconnected the old
one and plugged in the
optical mouse and turned
the computer on. It began


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY


loading files for it and now,
every time I turn on the
computer, I have to hit F1 to
continue loading windows.
"Then I'm told that
Windows has updated my
computer clock and asks
me to check it. It is always
wrong and I have to correct
the month, year and time.
"Do you have any ideas
what is causing this because
it never has done this
before? I'm sure it had to do
with adding the new mouse
(italics added by me).
"I recall reading one of
your articles where you said
most computer problems
were due to software added
to the computer. Any
corrections I can make?
"Thank you in advance
and please don't stop
writing your articles
because you certainly have
made a big difference to so


many of us."
George from Port St.
Lucie
On the surface, it would
appear George is on the
right track, because he
knows that when he added
the new hardware (the
mouse) and often when
new hardware is installed -
problems can occur. But
after reading his e-mail and
considering what was going
on, I realized that George
was about to start "chasing
rabbits." This is how I
replied to George:
"Hi. Thanks for reading!
What's happening on your
system likely has nothing to
do with the new mouse, just
coincidence that it started
happening at the same time
you added a new piece of
hardware.
"Your machine is proba-
bly older than three years,
yes?
"On your motherboard is
a small battery, such as that
found in a watch. When that
battery runs down, you will
have to hit F I every time
you boot and reset the


clock. With the battery dead
it looses track of time when
it powers down and all BIOS
settings have to be reset on
boot up. Un-plug the
system, open the'can' and
look for a watch-like battery
(probably about the size of a
quarter) and replace it. That
ought to correct the issue.
Hope that helps and thanks
again for reading."
Sean

The next day I opened
my e-mail and found the
following e-mail from
George:
"IHello Scan. Thank you
so much for the info on the
dead battery. I never
thought of that and yes, my
machine is over seven years
old and still running
Windows 98SE.
"I have never opened the
'can,' but the way you
explained it, I think I can
do that. I will let you know
how I make out. Again
thank you so much for your
help."
And the day after that:

,,_a










'The doctor will see you now' ,:


YTu showed up on time,
signed in, filled out all
the forms and waited
patiently while flipping
through magazines or
looking at the waiting room
television. But when the
receptionist calls your name
and says, "The doctor will
see you now," how do you
know if you're really going to
see the doctor, or if you'll be
relegated to an assistant with
many years of less experi-
ence and training?
While it's easy to under-
stand why some medical
offices might choose to save
money by utilizing physician
assistants, don't you think
your body and your health
deserve to be monitored by
someone with the hard-
earned title of doctor?
It might surprise you to
learn that, in many dermato-
logic offices right here on the
Treasure Coast, the person
examining you when you go


to see the doctor about that
suspect mole or skin tag has
much less training than a
medical doctor. It's sad and
very scary, but true. Unless
you insist on seeing a
medical doctor, your visit to
the physician's office may
never yield even a doctor
sighting if he's in the
building at all.
This is not to even slightly
imply that physician
assistant programs are
unworthy or ineffectual. In
the proper place and under
the appropriate, well-
supervised circumstances,
these programs are useful,
time-saving and cost-
effective. But when it comes


Rants & Raves
From page A6
Long story short, I got an extension from the nice
woman in charge of my case, reason being it wasn't as
easy as it looked to correct the situation. In the mean-
time, a lot of rubbish was discarded, and my screen patio
has been largely cleared and is awaiting re-screening.
I have eliminated a licensed, insured vehicle that sat
more than it went anywhere. I threw it away.
The grass wasn't in question this time, because it's cut
three times a month. I'm not sure I'm out of the woods
vet because I have some fine-tuning to do before it
should pass.
I can't afford the $250 a month charges if they're not
satisfied with my efforts because I live under the poverty
level. I am not trying to fudge on any of it. 1 pointed out
-in a previous note that it was going to be done before the
county notified me, but circumstances over the past 15
months have gotten progressively worse here, preventing
a timelier compliance.
Maybe it's a poor excuse, but people who have no
patience or understanding of my and other people's
hardships may be in the same boat in time. No one is too
good to ever have bad times. I've wanted to call code
enforcement on even worse situations than mine, but
didn't want it coming back on me. So much for me not
.wanting to add to someone else's hardships. I'm still
trying over here, so I hope the code enforcement division
takes note and doesn't send any more disturbing letters
here.


to your health, especially the
diagnosis and treatment of
skin cancer, it's your life on
the line. The staff at Treasure
Coast Dermatology strongly
believes that you deserve to
be examined by a skilled and
experienced medical doctor.
That's what you'll find every
time you visit Treasure Coast
Dermatology.
Under current Florida law
(458.347), a "supervising
physician" is permitted to
allow a PA to see patients,
write for prescription
medications and even, it
would seem, perform
surgery on skin cancer
without the physician being
present.
The cost can be the same
as if you had actually seen a
Board-Certified Specialist,
but the level of experience,
skill and your comfort may'
be galaxies apart.
How do you know if you're
being seen by Board-

Certified Dermatologist? It's
as simple as picking up the
phone and calling Treasure

always be treated by a
Board-Certified Medical
Doctor. When it comes to the
diagnosis and treatment of
your body, skin cancer and
indeed, your very life, we
believe you deserve nothing

It's been suggested that certain people are targeted in
time and nitpicked. I hope not. Code enforcement is a
legitimate department and hopefully not housing any of
the people in society who make sport of giving others the
business because it's "fun."

Unqualified and Uneducated candidates?
When most of us apply for a position, we must show a
four-year degree and well-documented experience.
Some candidates are running for office without any
background and without a degree. These candidates are
going to be in positions of authority and some making well
into a six-figure salary.
I can see why some candidates put up their own money to
run, not a bad investment.
For us, it is an insult. I recommend that all of us should
review our candidate's qualifications carefully.

Happy new school year
to teachers everywhere
As the new school year approaches, I would like to wish
our teachers a happy year. They are the backbone of the
school system. What happens in the classroom is
reflected in our world.
All of us, especially the parents, need to give strong
support to these professionals who teach and guide-our
children. It is a difficult job, and we need to work with
them in, every way we can. Our country needs everyone's
help.

go a long way. We've had
food donations before, but
never one this large."
At the conclusion of every
Mass the weekend of July 19,
a member of the 4th degree
3090 Knights of Columbus
of St. Lucie West spoke to the
church congregation about
the.dire need for food dona-
tions for homeless veterans,
many of whom come from
St. Lucie, Martin and Indian
River counties.
Parishioners were asked to
bring food in the following
weekend when they
returned for Mass.
"Those people are just
unbelievable," said Tony
Long, a member of the
Knights. of Columbus. "They
donated with open hearts. I
couldn't believe my eyes. I
stood at the church door for
two days and watched them
come in with bag after bag
of food."


Mr. Longo said the idea for
the food delivery came
when he was delivering old
magazines to the West Palm
Beach VAMC facility and
asked Mrs. Phillips what
programs they had to help
the homeless veterans.
"She told me they deliver
food, but nobody gives them
food," said Mr. Longo. "I told
her I'd have food there the
following month."
For the next two months,
Mr. Longo arranged for
donations from the Knights
of Columbus.
On the third month, he
contacted St. Bernadette's
"Project Mother Teresa"
ministry, a group that gath-
ers food on a monthly basis
from parishioners to distrib-
ute to the poor on the Trea-
sure Coast. The result was
the collection for the home-
less vets.
Mrs. Phillips said the
VAMC homeless program
frequently serves, veterans
from the Treasure Coast.
"They find their way to

Members of the Knights of Columbus of St. Lucie West are
shown delivering 2.5 tons of food to employees of the Vet-
eran's Administration Medical Center. The food was
donated by members of St. Bernadette Church in St. Lucie
West for homeless veterans, including those living in St.
Lucie County. In the center is Mary Phillips, chief of voluh-
tary and recreation therapy services for the VAMC, located
in West Palm Beach.

here for an outpatient
appointment; they .may
want to come in and have a
hot shower and do laundry.
And if they need food, we
allow them to go to the
pantry and pick up items
they think will get them
through for the next few
days."
According to Paul J. Hiott,
director of St. Lucie County
Veteran Services, it's esti-
mated there are 65 homeless
veterans in the county.
"However, Palm Beach has
800 a day going through
their soup kitchen," Mr.
Hiott said.


The Rev. Victor Ulto, pas-
tor of St. Bernadette
Catholic Church, said his
congregation's response to
the request for food was not
a surprise to him.
"I'm delighted and grateful
and thankful, but not sur-
prised," said Father Ulto.
"It's just another example of
our parish making steward-
ship a way of life."

'donating food or other iteris
to the Veteran's Administraz-
tion Medical Center, 7305 N.

Beach, may contact Mary

"The cost was too high and
;the kids weren't ready, so we
.-came up with the Washing-
Ston trip," he said.
SMost of the organization of
the trip fell on the shoulders
.of advisor Andrew Lewis,
who works full-time as a 911
dispatcher for the city.
Highlights of the trip
-included a visit to Arlington
National Cemetery, the
,Tomb of the Unknown Sol-
dier, tours of the White.
'House and the Pentagon, a
private meeting with Sen.
'Bill Nelson (D-FL) and a visit
o the meeting chambers of
'the U.S. Capitol while Sen-
'ate was in session.
The significance of the trip
was not lost on the teens or
the adults.

"Hello Sean. Just a follow
up on your advice regarding
replacing the computer's
battery. It worked like a
charm. I looked in the
computer manual to find
the info on the battery

'replacement from Radio

even I accomplished this

I always wanted to see
JFK's gravesite," said Officer
White, who was seeing the
nation's capital for the first
time. "It really touched me
and the tears were flowing."
The changing of the guard
at the Tomb of the Unknown
Soldier also impressed the
group.
"That was unbelievable,"
said Mr. Lewis. "The kids
were amazed. Everything is
snap and pop."
The Pentagon visit was an
emotional one for the group,
who were shown the memo-
rial where 184 people lost
their lives on Sept. 11, 2001.
"The kids will remember
that until the day they die,"
said Officer White. "They're
kids, but they still feel."
The tour of the White
House was limited, as Presi-
dent Bush was in residence
at the time.
The group enjoyed their
time with Sen. Nelson, who


Consider just how much
time could have been
wasted had we not thought
about what was going on
and instead just assumed
that the change of hardware
was the culprit. I can't help
but think just how many
older systems are still in
service out there and how
many people are having to
hit the Fl button every time
they have to boot.
If this sounds like you, try
replacing the battery; you
may have the same success
as George.

gave them clearance to visit
the Capitol building.
Officer White said they
were impressed watching
the Senate in action.
"They got to see that our
legislators really do speak
up for us here," he said.
Scott Trudeau, 16, a mas-
ter sergeant with the Explor-
ers, said viewing the 110th
Congress in the Capitol was
his favorite part.
"I've seen it on TV before
and it was a different experi-
ence watching it in person,"
he said.
Next was a trip to the
Marine Corp base in Quan-
tico, Va.
There, the youth saw K-9
demonstrations and were
permitted to fire simulated
weapons. One of the Explor-
ers, Kenny Agler, broke the
base's previous record by
earning 128 points for hit-
ting a target with 15 rounds.

that he grew up on the Trea-

and hiking the trails, and he
doesn't like the environmen-

childhood.
"What we see are dead ani-

wonderful animals losing
their habitats because we've
failed to be proper stewards of
our environment," he said.
Mr. Fetterman said he
believes it is possible to return.
to the beauty and environ-,
ment that Florida once
enjoyed.
"We can do it with green ini-,
tiatives and how we build our;
communities, and through,
conservation and proper

man. "And we can do so by.
working together across party,
lines to create what we need

"I know first-hand what
happens when the environ-
ment is ignored," said Mr.
Ramos. "I lived it. Where I
grew up, concrete was nor-
mal, trees were not."
Mr. Ramos spoke about his
motivation for running for the
District 81 seat.
"What forced me to run ini-
tially in 2006 was that the
rivers turned fluorescent'
green," said Mr. Ramos. "At
that point, I refused to shake,
my head at the TV I was chal-
lenged to run for this office to'
make a difference."
Kristina Wright has lived in
St. Lucie County for 10 years.,
Now a college student in
Miami majoring in English,
-she said she decided to run for
the office when she realized
legislators were not listening
to constituents' environmen-
tal concerns.
"After listening to all the'
people my friends, my col-
lege classmates, my parents, I'
got so fed up with what they-
are so passionately involved:
in and when they try to con-'
tact somebody about it they.
don't want to hear things,"
said Ms. Wright. "So I think
that's what I want to bring to
the table'-- somebody that
wants to listen."

Watch Repair Comer


My name is Elliot Acosta; I
have been a watchmaer
and repairman for more
than 30 years. I have
repaired hundreds of watch-
es and have heard many
myths and stories about
exactly who or what a
watchmaker or repairman
is.
A watch technician is a
person with basic training.
He or she should be able to
change parts of a watch and
do minor repairs.
Being a watch man
requires two years of school
and a minimum of five years
repairing watches under the
supervision of a master
watch maker.
A person who works in a
jewelry.store changing bat-
teries and bands is not a
watchmaker.
A watch maker is a person
who has invested lets of his
time learning, experiencing


and educating himself to
repair watches and fabricate
parts by hand. The watch
maker can make parts of a
watch that can't be found
anymore due to age or dis-
continuation. Without such
parts a watch could be use-
less.
As a watch maker, I think it
is very important that the
public knows who can pro-
tect their valuable watches.
Some jewelry stores
change batteries irresponsi-
bly, leaving fingerprints that
create oxide and can cause
the watch to stop working.
Some simply are not using
the correct batteries.
Our number one concern
is the customer; that's why
we always offer a profession-
al, honest and guaranteed
service.
We know a happy cus-
tomer is our warranty and
recommendation.

Querdo Lector


Mi nombre es Elliot Acosta y
soy relojero por mis de 30
anos. A lo largo de mi carrera
he reparado cientos de relojes
y escuchado muchos mitos e
histories sobre quien es un
Relojero.
TECNICO DE RELOJES: Es
una persona con un entre-
namiento basico, y esta habili-
tado para cambiar parties de
los relojes y algunas veces
puede repararlos.
RELOJERO: Para ser relojero,
se tiene que tener dos anos de
escuela, y un minimo de cinco
anos reparando relojes bajo la
supervision de un Maestro
Relojero.
Una persona que trabaja en
una joyeria cambiando
baterfas y pulsos a los relojes
no es un relojero
QUE ES UN RELOJERO: Es
una persona que a invierte


much tiempo aprendiendo,
experimentando y educin-
dose continuamente; no solo
para repararlos sino muchas
veces incluso fabricar a mano
algunas piezas o parties de un
reloj que no se puedan encon-
trar o que simplemente se han
descontinuado, lo que oca-
sionaria la perdida del reloj.
Creo que es important que
el lector aprenda estas cosas
para que pueda llevarlos al
lugar correct.
Sin ir muy lejos, estan cam-
biando baterias irrespons-
ablemente, con las manos
sucias dejando sus huellas
digitales en las maquinas, lo
que va a ocasionar que esta
pare de funcionar o se oxide; o
simplemente no usan las
baterfas correctas. La pr6xima
vez que desee cambiar una
baterfa, piense en la persona
correct.

Thanksgiving in New York City


is an exciting adventure


Most of us remember
as a child the
excitement of
Thanksgiving weekend.
Not just because we got a
day or two off from school,
but because it was a time to
gather with family and
friends for a feast.
I have such fond memo-
ries assisting my mother in
the kitchen with the
preparation of a fine turkey
feast.
Being the youngest, I was
always given the job of
tearing bread for the
stuffing and cutting celery
and onions (Oh, the
onions!) We always had the
turkey in the oven just in


time to sit down as a family
to watch the Macy's
Thanksgiving Day Parade.
I remember saying,
someday I am going to
experience the excitement
of the parade in person.
Today our family life is so
different, due to
demograhics. Grandparents
move south, children leave
hometowns to find oppor-
tunities and not always to


the same areas of the
country, so we find families
are not together for the
holidays as in days gone by.
So, why not make your
childhood wish a reality
and make this year the year
to see the Macy Thanksgiv-
ing's Day Parade in person?
Contact the family and
meet in New York for a great
holiday weekend. See the
excitement in the eyes of
your grandchildren when
they see the floats, the
bands, the hot air balloons
and remember.

priced from $794* per

Chief Skinner said he feels
his legacy will be his com-
mitment to the residents of
Port St. Lucie, and one of his
proudest accomplishments
was the department's han-
dling, of events after multi-
ple hurricanes hit the city.
S"We had not experienced
one in many years," he said.
"By the time Jeanne and
Wilma came, we had it
down. Many residents told
us how much comfort that
gave them. I'm proud of
that."
During his tenure with the
police department, Chief
Skinner saw the population
grow from 14,000 to 160,000.
"Incredible," he said, shak-
ing his head at the thought.

law enforcement has to pro-

Chief Skinner knows it will

Your good nature and strong

better from here.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
Your natural passion is conta-
gious. You are the spark that

Use these healthy alternatives


when making quiche


Hello smart shop-
pers. Mom passed
away Aug. 4 and is
with the Lord now.
We are entering a forbid-
den world for those of you
who must watch the fat
and cholesterol. We're
going to make quiche.
Stick with me. I will give
you alternatives that will
allow you to eat this high-
fat, high-cholesterol food.
After trial and error, I
finally created recipes that
will make all quiche lovers
happy. The major source of
saturated fat is in the
crust. If most of the other
ingredients are fat free or
low fat, you have created
an allowable quiche.
C Most fat-free cheeses
taste like wax and will not
melt. Kraft fat-free slices
are really good and they
melt the way cheese

should. They come in
American, Swiss, cheddar
and mozzarella.
Romano and Parmesan
cheeses are high in fat and
the amount can be
reduced if you choose. I
have yet to find a suitable
substitution.
The quiche can be made
crust-less. Simply treat a
pan with cooking spray
first. If you prefer it with
crust, as I do, make sure
most of the other ingredi-
ents are low fat or fat free.
The crust will add only a
little fat.
When cream is required,
substitute evaporated skim
milk, undiluted or Land '0
Lakes fat-free half and half.
You cannot omit whole
eggs entirely. I have found
that anything that has a
custard- like consistency
must have at least one egg
yolk to rise, properly.
Quiche makes a delicious
meal when served with
assorted fresh fruits and
melons or a gelatin salad.
It can be prepared and
baked in advance and
heated in the oven just
before serving.
Enjoy. See you next week.

NOTE: Please read
aforementioned text for
fat-free choices before
proceeding.

A District on the rise: The state of the school district 2008


t. Lucie County public
schools and the school
board can report to the
community that the state of
the district is indeed
improving and on the rise.
The organization plays a
critical role in the founda-
tion and future of the
Research Coast.
The St. Lucie County
District School Board is the
largest employer on the
Research Coast. As such, we
serve more lunches, care for
more clients and customers,
and contribute more payroll
to the local economy than
any other entity in the
region. In the larger sense,
however, the public's
schools are the future of our
various communities. The
40,000 students, the 5,000
employees (full- and part-
time) and the nearly 150,000
people we touch on a daily
basis all have hopes and
dreams pinned to educa-
tion, higher expectations
and futures that are indeed
better than the past. This is
cultural change on the back
of education, happening
right now and led by your
public schools.
The growth in students,
nearly 10,000 in the past
four years, and the need for
modernization in facilities,
technologies, pedagogy and
teacher professional
development has allowed us
to re-engineer and re-create

this school district. I cite the
following:
We are now rated as a "B"
school district by Florida.
On a 525-point scale to
become an "A" rated district,
we are now just 17 points
shy at 508 points.
We have accelerated the
number of students taking
Advanced Placement,
International Baccalaureate,
AICE and Collegiate dual
enrollment courses since
2004 from 1,172 students to
2,231 students taking the
most demanding pre-
collegiatelcollege level
courses this past year, a 90
percent increase. Our high
school graduates were
awarded more than $17
million in scholarships and
grants this year, an increase
of $6 million in four years.
We have totally reformed
each of our now six high
schools in St. Lucie County
through our "Centers of
Excellence" programs. These
aim students into the 21st
century world of science,
math, integrated technolo-
gies and the roles and
employment opportunities
of the future, not the past.
We have an expanded

'appreciation and support
for the arts as integral parts
of our curriculum. All one
has to do is enjoy our plays,
music, dance and artistic
offerings and feel the school
board's commitment when
you enter the facilities
constructed and/or renovat-
ed in support of these
cultural necessities.
Since 2004, the school
board has constructed eight
brand new, state-of-the-art
schools, re-configured six
existing schools into K-8
models to reduce transitions
and allow students to grow
from kindergarten until
,entry to high school at the
same location, and updated
technologies to a standard
platform in more than 1,800
classrooms that are state-of-
the-art.
We have totally revamped
professional development
for all staff to cause us to be
less bureaucratic and more a
community of constant
learners. In the past year
alone, more than 10,000
individual courses were
offered and completed by
our employees, not counting
college renewal courses. The
school board's commitment
to constantly improved
capacity and capability of
our employees has never
been more necessary nor
has it ever been stronger.
State of Florida data
confirms that we are closing
the achievement gap,

primarily between children
of poverty (nearly 60 percent
of all students) and those
above the national poverty
line of free and reduced
lunch qualification.
The Department of
Education states that St.
Lucie County's graduation
rate is 3 percentage points
higher than the state (a
positive thing) and our drop
out rate is below the state
(another positive).
From a purely business
perspective, the audits of the
school board all are "clean,"
the bond rating is at its all-
time best. The district was
among the first few school
districts (there are 67 in
Florida) to earn the Legisla-
tive "watchdog" OPPAGA
Seal of Best Financial


Practices.
The state also confirms
that of the 67 school
districts, we have the
fourth-lowest ratio of
administrators to students.
This is another solid
indicator of efficiency in
managing the public's
money as an investment in
our children and our
community. ,
The district is guided in
matters of academic
achievement, business
practices, financial consid-
erations and community
involvement and integra-
tion by the District Academ-
ic Business Plan. This plan is
closely aligned with individ-
ual school improvement
plans that identify needs

gies.
In 2007 the school board
approved "needs based
fiscal appropriations" as
part of the board's recogni-
tion that greater student
needs require greater
resources to get to equal
educational opportunities
for all children. This, along
with the fantastic effort of'
staff, led to phenomenal
gains in student achieve-
ment across the district, but
especially at school sites
where there are large
numbers of students
coming to school with great
needs. In 2007-08, more
than 1,000 additional
students rated proficient
than in the previous year.

Bus services may look

different to students


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
Faced with slashed state
funding for public schools, a
reduction in sales tax rev-
enue, and rising fuel prices,
the level of some services
provided by school districts
in Florida will undoubtedly
change.
Student transportation,
one of the 'highest ticket
items in school budgets, is
certainly one area in which
school districts all across the
state have had to restructure
their system to continue
service.
St. Lucie County Public
Schools' transportation
department has already
announced some alterations
to streamline operations, the
most significant being
equalizing its three- tiered
system to eliminate routes,
saVe fuel, and cut labor costs.
Other cost-saving meas-
ures in place for the 2008-
2009 school year include:
* Discontinuing "cour-
tesy" after-school trans-
portation for extracurricular
activities.
Discontinuing con-
tracted bus washing and
seat repair service.
Standardizing pre-trip,
administrative and dead-
head time to each school.
Adjusting outside
agency leasing mileage and
hourly rates.


Adjusting reimburse-
ment mileage and hourly
rates for school trips.
Discontinuing any
"courtesy" stop within two
miles of school that is not
claimable as hazard.
Placing bus stops fur-
ther apart to eliminate
stops.
Implementing a "com-
munity" stop model for
countywide schools.
Transportation will be
available for all students
living beyond two miles
from their school and for
students with special needs
as identified by their Indi-
vidual Education Plan, but
some parents may notice a
change in the location of
their child's bus stop.
The transportation
department has an updat-
ed bus route information'
available to parents begin-
ning Aug. 9, including the
transportation department
Web page under the Parent
tab on the school district's
Web site, http://www.stlu-
cie.k12.fl.us.
Parents are encouraged
to check assigned stops
before the first day of
school through the Web
page, by listening to the
automated phone mes-
sage, calling the bus trans-
portation hotline at (772)
340-4849, or checking with
school personnel during
their child's school's open
house.


Lannon
From page B7
We are well on the road to
seeing our vision, of
becoming "premiere
centers of knowledge...
whose name will be
synonymous with continu-
ously improving student
achievement and the
success of each individual."
Still, there is a long journey
we are committed to seeing
through to conclusion.
There is much yet to be
done as the St. Lucie County
District School Board seeks
ways and means to assist
each and every child to
achieve their dream of

success and achievement.
One final thought: All
portions of public service
are experiencing enormous
financial shortfalls includ-
ing K-12 education. The
U.S. Census Bureau
reported during the spring
that Florida ranked No. 50
of the 50 states and the
District of Columbia in per
capital spending on K-12
education. We are now
involved in a near $20
million budget reduction
for the 2008-09 school year.
Services and programs will
be severely impacted as we
live within the budget
provided by Florida's
Legislature. I have every
confidence'that we will


prevail and survive but, just
like being hit by hurricanes,
you never get back to
"normal," you create a new
normal. St. Lucie County
Public Schools have beer
hard at work creating this
"new normal" for years. We
are on the rise, and the
indisputable facts and
truths are outlined above.
Thanks for your con-
structive criticisms, your
support and your belief
in the future of all of our
children; and for us, all
means all.
Michael Lannon is
superintendent for St.
Lucie County Public
Schools.

that if I passed my driving
testI could work for them to
learn stage arts."
Mr. Cripps passed his
driving test and worked for
Britannia Row Lighting,
which did the music and
sound for the rock group,
and then he moved on to the
British Broadcasting Corpo-
ration, where he worked for
13 years. He worked in
transportation, but that still
enabled him to learn from all
the different departments,
including props, wardrobe,
and special effects.
"All the departments have
transportation, and you can
either wait around for them
or join in and help make the
show," he said. "I learned
from alot of very interesting

industry, and I paid extreme
attention. I was lucky
enough to attend both Royal
weddings, as well."
At the end of his time at the
BBC, he was close to
burnout and also had a
broken leg, so he took a
year's sabbatical. He then got
in touch with his union,
which put him in contact
with the Royal National
Theatre, where he worked as
a stage technician on all
phases of stage production.
"In five years I worked on
565 shows," he said. "There
were extraordinary stars,
including lan McKellen,
Angela Lansbury, Anthony
Hopkins and Judi Dench."
He came to the United
States in 1990 to visit his
mother, who lived in
Sandpiper, and met his
future wife through his
mother's next-door neigh-
bor. They were married in

his admission into the
United States was processed.
His introduction to Shiloh
was another one of those
fortunate circumstances that
have punctuated his life.
The music director at his
church in St. LucieWest was
the keyboard player for a
rock group, and Mr. Cripps
did the sound and lighting..
His reputation spread, and
representatives from Shiloh
came to meet him. He began
doing lighting and set designI
for the community theater
group. Today, he does most
of their shows, as well as
work for the Maltz Theatre in
Jupiter.
At the beginning of a
production, Mr. Cripps sits
down with the director to
discuss the way each sees
the show unfolding.
"You have a black and
white canvas," Mr. Cripps
said of the stage. "Then you
start adding the color in the
set pieces. After major


discussions with the
director, you take the budget
and see what you can do.
Then it gets interesting. If I
am doing all four shows (for
the season), I will think
conceptually about what I'm
going to build and where I
can change pieces into other
pieces."
Mr. Cripps' day job is in
the engineering department
of Pursuit Boats in Fort
Pierce, and he fits in his
"part-time passion" for
theater design around the
schedules of the cast. That
may mean painting sets at
midnight. Still, there is a
tremendous satisfaction to
all the hard work.
"I take a hard look at what
we have and assemble a set
within a budget that gives
us a tremendous lookon
stage. We want to project a
show that reflects what
theater is all about. You
don't have to go to NewYork
to see it."

Origins of golfing


day honors


fallen soldiers


his year, as we cele-
brate Patriot Golf Day
over the course of the
three-day Labor Day
weekend, I thought it
important to tell you just
how this day came to be.
Brad and Brock Bucklin,
premature twins born in
Grand Rapids, Mich., were
part of a family of five sons
of Duane and Dawn Bucklin
of Caledonia, Mich.
The boys grew up to
become fine young men.
While trying to find some
direction in his life, Brock
followed his brother into
the military, enlisting a year
after his brother in August
2004.
In the military, Brock
found his way and told his
father that he planned to
enter officer training school
and make the U.S. Army his
career. .
"After he got in the
service, he found his way,"
said Duane "Buck" Bucklin,
69, a retired vice president
of an office furniture
manufacturer.
While stationed in
Germany, Brad Bucklin rose
to the rank of corporal.
Brock was assigned to the
1st Battalion, 68th Armor
Regiment, 3rd Heavy
Brigade Combat Team and
4th Infantry Division of Fort
Carson, Colo. In December
2005, Brock received his call
to service in Iraq.
At age 28, on May 31,
2006, Corporal Brock
Bucklin was the "acting
mayor" of Forward Operat-
ing Base GABE, on the
outskirts of Baqubah, some
40 miles northeast of
Baghdad. The first sergeant,
the appointed mayor, was
on leave. Just as a mayor in
a town is the point person
in time of'need, the "mayor"
of FOB GABE was the "go-'
to" guy \\hen oldiers had, ":
problems or needs with
their facilities.
It was Brock's duty to
coordinate and manage the
independent contractors
and support resources to
address those needs. On
this particular day, Bucklin
was assigned to assist '
Kellogg and Brown & Root,
civilian contractors, to
identify equipment and
property for transport as
FOB GABE was closing
down.
The civilian contractors
were responsible for moving
concrete barriers, which
ranged in size from 3-feet
tall to 6-feet long, with the
largest 12-feet long and 6-
feet high and 4-feet wide at
the base.
The barriers weighed as
much as 10 tons each, and
while they were moving
them onto trailers for
transport, one of the trucks
became stuck.
It was decided that they
would pull the truck that
was stuck with another. A "
cargo chain separated the

two trucks. As the workers,
were off to the side, the i
chain snapped and a
broken link found Brock
and sliced an artery in his
neck.
A Special Forces medic
arrived and provided
treatment to Bucklin.
Eighteen minutes later, a
MEDEVAC helicopter
transported Bucklin to LSA
Anaconda Air Force Hospi-
tal. Less than a half-hour
later, Brock Bucklin, having
served for 22 months in the
Army, died.
"It is a tragedy that when
a son or daughter dies
before you. It is unnatural.,
It's the thing that's unac-
ceptable and most trou-
bling," said his father, Buck.
Brad fought his military
command in Germany to be
allowed to accompany his
brother's coffin home to
Grand Rapids. Then, Capt.
Dan Rooney, a PGA profes-
sional from Broken Arrow,
Okla., and a member of the
Oklahoma Air National
Guard, was also on the
flight, as it carried home the
body of Cpl. Brock Bucklin.
The plane landed at 11:35
p.m., and Rooney watched
outside the window as the
Bucklins awaited Brad and
the coffin of their late son.
Brock's son, Jacob, was
clinging to the leg of his
mother.
The pilot had asked that
all passengers remain in
their seats until the remains ,
of a fallen hero could be
transferred. Rooney looked
up and half of the passen-
-gers had left the plane.
Trom that moment, Rooiiey
said,.he was inspired to give
back to the fallen heroes'
families.
A little over year after
the funeral of Brock Buck-
lin, Rooney called Buck,
letting him know that his
son would not be forgotten,
along with the families of
those who had perished or
became disabled in the line
of duty in Iraq or
Afghanistan.
"I am an ordinary person
that has been blessed with
the extraordinary opportu-
nity to be the flight leader
on the Patriot Golf Day
mission," said Rooney. "I
simply planted a small seed
which has been cultivated
by PGA professionals and
great citizens around the
United States of America."
Brock Bucklin's son, Jacob
is now 6, and is the recipient
of a scholarship generated
from Rooney's vision for
honoring the fallen heroes,
the Folds of Honor Founda-
tion, and its' largest
fundraiser, Patriot Golf Day.
"It was good to know that
something good comes
from this," said Buck ,
Bucklin. "There are a lot of
other sons, a lot of other
daughters, who did not
come home. I'm a patriot
and I have served in the
military. We only haveour
freedom because of our
military.
"Never could I imagine
.what it was that Dan Rooney
wanted to do," said Buck.
"But Lknow thatmy son
would be extremely proud."
If you'd like to honor the
memories of all of our fallen
heroes while celebrating
your freedom, please do so
over the Labor Day weekend
by playing at a participating
Patriot Golf Day course.
Courses and additional
information are available at I
www.patriotgolfday.com.

an avid golfer and golf
enthusiast for 30 years. He
