PORT ST. LUCIE - Even if
the Port St. Lucie City Council
approves a $20 million
drainage project, it won't
totally solve flooding prob-
lems in the Lennard Road
area, city manager Don
Cooper said last week.
But it could make the dif-
ference between feet and
inches of flooding, he said.
Flooding in the area
occurred last summer, when
Tropical Storm Fay drenched
the city.
Mr. Cooper discussed the
results of a study to find solu-
tions to the problem.
The problem comes about
because during what is con-
sidered a 100-year storm,
(one of such intensity that on
the average it only occurs


"Even if the Pbrt St. Lucie City Council

city manager


once a century) too much
water concentrates in the
Howard Creek basin, Mr.
Cooper said.
Tropical Storm Fay exceed-
ed what would be considered
a 100-year storm, he said.
To remedy the drainage
problem, he said, would cost
about $20 million.
Money could come from
grants or raising the city's
annual stormwater fee,
which currently is $133, by
$15 to $17.
Another alternative source


of funding could be if the fed-
eral government has an eco-
nomic stimulus plan that
includes funding for public
works projects.
The City Council must
decide whether it wants to
provide protection against a
100-year-storm, as compared
to a 25-year storm, which is
now the standard, he said.
If the city wants to increase
the standard, he said, the
council must decide whether
to build several retention
ponds along Lennard Road or


pump the water to the North
Fork of the St. Lucie River.
The main problem with the
pumping solution, he said, is
that it would require environ-
mental permits from the.
state.
"I don't think they're very
good (the chances of getting
the permits)," Mr. Cooper
said.
At best, he said, it would
probably take two years to get
the permits.
In regard to the retention
ponds, he said, the city would
have to buy land.
Mr. Cooper recommended
the city avoid going to court
to obtain property, should
the owner not want to sell.
But he reiterated that
would not resolve all the.
flooding.
"There is simply not
enough land available to do


that," he said.
Mayor Patricia Christensen
said some residents may not
like driving on Lennard Road
and seeing several reservoirs
that are empty most of the
year.
The City Council plans to
hold a public hearing in Janu-
ary on the proposal.
Vice Mayor Jack Kelly said
that drainage problems also
should be addressed in St.
LucieWest.
In another matter, the
Council approved a proposal
by Councilwoman Michelle
Berger that would suspend
the permitting process for
businesses that want to dis-
play banners from Nov. 28 to
Dec. 2.
Ms. Berger said suspending
the permit process would
help businesses during the
economic downturn.

Aviation history comes to airport


THE FUNCTION OF DIFFERENT TEETH
Q: Is it true that fungi can grow in your mouth?
A: Yes. In fact, fungi occur naturally in the mouth, just as bacteria and viruses do. Normally
they all are kept in check by the body's natural defenses and by your practice of good oral
hygiene. Fungi in particular are kept in check by those steps and also by competition with
mouth bacteria. Sometimes, however, when the body's balance gets out of whack for one reason
or another, the fungi may proliferate out of control and cause an infection.
A Fungal infection often occurs after a patient has been treated for a bacterial infection. The
antibiotic used for treatment reduces the number of bacteria in the mouth and the fungi thrive. A fungal
infection is also common when the body's immune system is weakened for whatever reason. Your dentist can
prescribe special antifungal medication in the event of a fungal outbreak.
The most common of all fungal infections is called candidiasis, also known as moniliasis or oral thrush. It's
especially common among the very young, the elderly and people who are weakened by other conditions. The
main sign is a creamy coating that can appear on any moist surface inside or outside the mouth. Talk with your So
dentist about ways to keep your mouth's fungi under control.

FORT PIERCE - Pictures
and documents are now on
permanent display at the
St. Lucie County Interna-
tional Airport depicting the
78-year history of aviation
in St. Lucie County.
County Commissioner-
elect Chris Dzadovsky dedi-
cated the "History Wall" on
Nov. 15, during Airport Day.
"In today's fast-paced
information age, we are so
busy keeping up with the
media that we often fail to
reflect on our past," said
airport director Diana
Lewis. "That's why these
walls are so important. Not
because of some dates on a
wall, or pictures that hang,
but because of the people
and places all these things
represent."
The History Wall shows
that airports in St. Lucie
County had no control tow-
ers. Some used tomato bas-
kets, bales of hay or lime


rock to mark runways.
These early airfields were
used mainly for crop dust-
ing. One was a combination
airfield, dairy farm and
junk yard.
And their names were
also noteworthy: Angle
Road Airfield, Hogwild
International, Hickman Air-
field, Sunrise Airport and
White Sands Prairie Air-
field.
During the early years of
the present airport, fuel-fed
lanterns were used for night
practice until their storage
shed burned down.
The land that is now
called the St. Lucie County
International Airport was
purchased in 1930. It
remained a quiet airport,
even though economic
indicators showed that
there was a need for an air-
port, and that it could
become a major industrial
attraction.
History Wall documents
show that during World War
II, the U.S. Navy leased the
airport from the county and


used it to train aircraft for
carrier landings. Documen-
tation shows that after the
war, the land was trans-
ferred back to the county.
Again, there was little
activity for the next 10
years. During this dormant
period, the airport was
overgrown by all types of
unwanted vegetation. Cows
had the run of the place.
During the '60s and '70s
improvements took off with
the construction of a termi-
nal, hangars, airfield light-
ing, navigational aids and
fuel facilities.
Curtis King, who became
the first full-time director in
1967, played an instrumen-
tal role in the developing
the county's airport for 31
years.
The airport continues to
grow with new opportuni-
ties, including the Airport
West Commerce Park and a
new training runway and
taxiway.

The largest decrease was
construction, with a loss of
1,500 jobs, followed by 1,000
in business and professional
services.
When construction jobs
are lost, Ms. Thompson
said, that affects businesses,
such as restaurants, because
unemployed people stop
spending money.
"If they're not working,


they're no longer eating out
at lunchtime," she said.
In the Sebastian-Vero
Beach metro area, 600 jobs
were cut from the previous
year.
Those job losses were in
professional and business
services, construction,
manufacturing, government
and utilities.
Gains were in education

Counties should help needy

Why is it that local counties refuse to create work, affordable
housing and eliminate homelessness?
How come it so hard for both counties to create work and
affordable housing? There are people out of work or about to
lose their jobs and be put out on the street and become home-
less. By creating work and affordable housing both counties
can all but eliminate homelessness.
These same people want to work, even keep their jobs, and
'also want affordable housing, not only for themselves, but for
their families. Why is it that both counties and the state of Flori-
da look the other way and not solve the problem?
This is the reason why both counties and the state have a bad
reputation nation- wide; they blame everyone else for their
own ignorance.

Response to election rant

I am writing in response to "Be Careful of New Administra-
tion" in the Nov. 28 issue of Hometown News. i found the piece
to be'offensive and totally un-American. This person claims
that only those who are devout Christians are worthy of run-
ning our country.
In addition, the piece implies that liberals, Democrats and
minorities did not sacrifice for this country. He or she further
implies that those same minorities are ruining this country. To
add further outrage, our President-elect is termed "Bin Laden's
henchman."
This person, and your newspaper, should be ashamed of this
racist rhetoric. We are a country of minorities and immigrants
and in addition, America is a melting pot of many cultures and
religions. If he/she does not believe this, I suggest his/her own
advice be taken and "move to isolated pockets(?):"
Hometown News has every right to publish this type of
hatred. But an opposing point of view should also be given
space. I was quite dismayed to read this obvious bigotry in the
newspaper and hope to see the same space given to a more
American point of view.

More on election rant

Last week a frustrated Republican let the Democrats have it.
Thdindividual who was sorry the "good old boys won't even
exist" does not knowwhat that phrase means.
President-elect Obama has always been a Christian.
Remember his dreadful minister who does hate America?
The Bible says, "Judge not lest ye be judged, "and that is
something the letter-writer should.remember. I wonder why
she feels qualified to judge others.
Obama is not a Muslim and never has been. If the letter- '
writer follows the news, she knows now that the cabinet is.
being filled with experienced men.
In my view, President Bush is the worst thing thathas hap-
pened to this, country in my 77 years. (I call him King George.)
He does not follow the Constitution, whichhe swore to uphold.
It is his duty to execute the laws passed by Congress, but when
he signs them, he indicates he may not. And there are other
examples.
Last, but certainly not least, remember the hundreds of thou-
sands who have been killed or wounded in an unjust cause.
After all Iraq had nothing to do with Sept. 11. That was
Afghanistan.
Editor's note: We are glad you took the time to furnish an
opposing opinion.

Concerned about school safety

My daughter is currently a freshman at Martin County High
School. In the last month, there have been a number of security
issues at that school.
A student was detained for assaulting a faculty meriber with
abox cutter. On another occasion, five children were stabbed at
.a football game. Today, I received a phone call from another
parent, who urged me to pick my child up from school immedi-
ately, because a student had threatened to bring a gun to
school.
I know that school officials and the sheriffs department are
doing all they can to keep my little girl safe while she is in their
custody, but I have to wonder if she is truly safe.
I paid $469.18 in property taxes this year for public schools.
Every home- owner pays that tax. Most pay more than me. I do
not understand why there is not more security on campus. If

Guard yourself against identity theft


ver the last two weeks,
I have been writing a
series on the growing
problem of identity theft. I
chose this topic (not
realizing that it was going to
become a multi-part series)
because of people's miscon-
ceptions that identity theft is
primarily a computer-
related crime.
What I found while
researching this series is that
identity theft is the most
rapidly-growing fraud-
related crime, with only a-
portion of cases computer
related.
A common misconception
is: "what does it matter if
someone steals my identity?
It's not like I'm rich or
anything, so they aren't
going to get anything from
me."
But the cold reality is that
we are all vulnerable; and
even though it may only take
an identity thief a few hours
to steal someone's identity, it
can take years fro the victim
to get it restored.
OK, so, it's a problem that
we all face. The question
nowis what can'we do about
it?
The Federal Bureau of
Investigation recommends
that we take the following
steps to protect ourselves
arid also offers some
guidelines to follow in the
event you find yourself a
victim. (Note: the following
is from n FBI press release
on identity theft).
Howdo I protect myself?
Never give out personal
information over the
telephone, Internet or


COMPUTE

through the mail, unless you
initiated the contact or you
are sure who you are dealing
with.
Secure/lock up docu-
ments in your home that
contain sensitive informa-
tion. Shred documents that
contain sensitive informa-
tion before throwing them in
the trash.
Protect PIN numbers and
passwords.
Avoid using readily-
identifiable information for
a password. Select a more
complex combination of
numbers and letters when
creating passwords.
Deposit'outgoing mail in a
U.S. Post Office collection
box orht the post office,
rather than using an
unsecured mailbox, and
promptly remove incoming
mail from your mailbox.
Limit the number of
identification documents
and credit cards you carry to
only what is necessary
Close unused credit card
or bank accounts. If a bill
does not arrive on time,
ensure that your mailing
address has not been
changed.
Review your:financial
statements carefully for
unauthorized charges.
Review a copy of your
credit report annually.
How do I protect myself
online?


Update your virus protec-
tion software regularly. Use a
firewall for extra protection,
especially if you have a high-
speed Internet connection.
Do not download files or
open e-mail attachments
from unknown individuals;
they may contain a comput-
er virus allowing the hacker
to access your computer
files.
Before disposing of an old
computer, have the hard drive
reformatted to "wipe" or overwrite
your hard drive.
. Avoid using an automatic
login feature on the comput-
er, which saves your user
name and password. '
What can I do ifI am a
victim of identity theft?
Place a fraud alert on your
credit reports. The three
major credit reporting
agencies have launched a
joint fraud alert system,
eliminating the need for
victims to contact all three
agencies. A fraud alert
placed with one credit
reporting agency will now be
shared with other credit
reporting agencies. Theyare:
Experian
(www.experian.com) (888)
397-3742
Equifax
(www.Equifax.com) (800)
525-6285
TransUnion
(www.tuc.com) (800) 680-
7289
Contact the fraud/security
department of the compro-
mised'or fraudulent account
issuer. Notify them by phone
and in writing, and close any
affected accounts. A sample
identity theft affidavit is
available at


www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pub
s/credit/affidavit.
File a report with your
local police department.
File a report using the FTC
identity theft hotline. The
FTC is the central clearing-
house for identity theft
complaints.
Complaints may be filed
by telephone, online or by
mail: Identity Theft Clearing-
house, Federal Trade
Commission, 600 Pennsylva-
nia Avenue N.W, Washing-
ton, D.C. 20580, call (877)
438-4338 or go to www.con-
sumergov/idthef
If your Social Security
number has been compro-
mised, you may contact the
Social Security administra-
tion's fraud hotline at (800)
.269-0271.
Keep detailed notes and
copies of documents while
going through this reporting
process, including the
names of the agencies and
individuals'you have spoken
with.
As I mentioned earlier, it
can take years to restore an
identity once it's been
compromised. But fortu-
nately, there are more and
more systems coming into
place to help people combat
this insidious trend.
Some banks are offering
'ID theft protection along
with their credit cards, but I
don't know how helpful that
would be should someone
commit a crime in your
name..

Fighting SAD before it gets worse


t happens every year, even
in Florida. The days get
shorter and many of us
start to feel a little blue.
Those of us who came
from the north are familiar
with the "winter blues,"
when the days get short and
gray, the trees grow bare and
everything seems damp and
cold.
For many of us, escaping
the depression that came
with the winter weather was
a major reason for coming to
Florida to live, and snow-
birds continue to come here
each winter for our "best
season."
While the winter blues
may not be as severe in the
south, it is still a reality for
many people. Even in
Florida, the days grow
shorter and there are far
fewer hours of sunlight each
day. It can be sunny at 3 p.m.
and dark by 4:30!
Those of us in Florida who
are susceptible to the "winter
blues," or seasonal affective
disorder, as it is medically
known, need to be alert,
understand the symptoms
and take action to ease the
distress of SAD.
The first thing you need to
know is that SAD is a
recognized form of depres-
sion that has been linked to a
biochemical imbalance in
the brain. The imbalance is


ALIVE
& WELL
SHELLEY KOPPEL



brought on by the shorter
days and lack of sunlight. It is
real.
Some of the symptoms of;
SAD include:
* Excessive sleeping.
* Increased appetite and
weight gain (people often
turn to comfort food and
crave starches and sugars).
* Irritability.
* Difficulties with other
people, especially feelings of
rejection.
*A heavy, leaden feeling in
the arms and legs.
The American Psychiatric
Association (www.healthy-
minds.org) suggests a variety
of treatments that are
effective in managing or
staving off SAD.
The first thing to try is to
increase your exposure to
sunlight. If possible, take a
walk or arrange an office or
room so that you are
exposed to a window. If you
work in a cubicle, try to get
out on your lunch hour. A
walk also decreases stress
and exercise has been found
to help with the symptoms of


SAD.
'If your symptoms don't go
away, or affect your daily life,
then it's time to seek help. A
professional trained in the
treatment of depression may
recommend several treat-
ments, including traditional
measures such as talk
therapy and antidepressants.
However, he or she may also
recommend light therapy,
which has been very effective
in treating SAD.
This involves exposure to a
bright light from a special
fluorescent light box for
between 30 to 90 minutes a
day during the winter.
Many people notice
improvement within a few
days, while other may take a
few weeks to see improve-
ment. If there is none at all,
other treatments may be
necessary.
Before investing in a
bright-light device, you
should consult with your
physician, because people
with certain eye conditions
and sensitivity to light may
not be good candidates for
the treatment.
In addition, someone
should monitor your
progress, to see how you are
feeling and if the treatment is
appropriate for you.
Light therapy devices
range from metal boxes to
portable lamps. They


contain white fluorescent
light bulbs behind a diffuser,
so the light is at a downward
angle, allowing more to enter
the eyes. The diffuser spreads
the light evenly and absorbs
and filters out dangerous
ultraviolet rays. It is extreme-
ly important to purchase a
light box from a reputable
company that can provide
independent verification
that the devices they sell are
free of ultraviolet rays that
can damage the eyes and
skin.
If seasonal affective
disorder is a problem for
you, it's a good idea to think
now about a solution before
the days grow shorter and
depression sets in. That's
when it seems hard to do
anything, including seek
treatment.
You can call 211 and ask
for organizations that
provide mental health
counseling, many on sliding
scales.

Lawnwood Regional Medical
Center in Fort Pierce offers

Simple steps to safeguard your identity


Don't be a victim
this holiday
season
Up to 500,000 individuals
are victims each year of iden-
tity theft. Much of this type of
fraud happens during the
holiday season.
Fortunately, a few simple
steps can help ensure you
stay out of these statistics.
Identity theft or "account
takeover fraud" involves
criminals stealing a person's
personal information. The
crooks assume a person's
identity, apply for credit in
his or her name, run up huge
bills, stiff creditors and gen-
erally wreck the victim's
credit record.
Most banks take steps to
look out for their customers
by putting a combination of
safeguards in place, includ-


RIVERSIDE
BANK
? TIM BUSBY



ing employee training, rigor-
ous security standards, data
encryption and fraud detec-
tion.
Some banks offer identity
theft protection products
that monitor all three credit
reports for you daily and
send you customizable alerts
of any key changes.
In addition to the banks'
efforts, you can take these
steps to avoid becoming a
victim: ,
* Don't give your Social
Security or account numbers
to anyone over the phone
unless you initiated the call.
* Tear up or shred receipts,


old bank statements and
unused credit card offers
before throwing them away.
Crooks could steal informa-
tion from your trash and use
it to get credit in your name.
* Review your bank and
credit card statements as
soon as you receive them to
check for unauthorized
transactions.
* Protect your personal
identification numbers and
computer passwords; use a
combination of letters and
numbers and change them
often. Never carry this infor-
mation with you.
* Order copies of your
credit report once a year to
ensure accuracy. Logon to
AnnualCreditReport.com,
the only online site support-
ed by the three national
credit reporting agencies. Or
call any of the agencies:

Gift card tips


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY -
"Because we care about the
people in the home towns we
serve," said Michael Coady,
Riverside Bank President in
Martin County. "We are pro-
viding the following'tips for
consumers to make better
choices when purchasing gift
cards this holiday season."
* Only buy gift cards from
reputable sources. Stay away
from online auction sites,
which may have counterfeit
or fraudulently-obtained
cards.
* Some gift cards don't have
fees, but others do. Check the
packaging for information on
fees or look for a toll-free
number or Web site with full
information: Some fees may
be paid in cash, but others
deduct fees from the card.


* Check for an expiration
date. Some gift cards expire. If
your card does, you may not
be able to use it after the expi-
ration date. Find out whether
the card can be reissued with
a new expiration date, and
what the fee would be for
issuing a new card.
* Don't buy it if anything
looks suspicious, such as if
protective stickers have been
removed or the codes on the
back of the card have been
scratched off to reveal a PIN
number.
* Have the store cashier
scan the gift card you're buy-
ing in front of you. This
reflects the balance that you
paid for it and protects
against crooks who substitute
worthless cards for the cards
you think you are buying.
* Keep your original receipt
if you need to verify the value
of the card. Having the toll-


free number that appears on
the back of the card can be
handy if your gift card is lost
or doesn't work.
* Never give your Social
Security number, date of birth
or any other private informa-
tion to anyone when you pur-
chase a gift card. No reputable
company will ever ask for this
information.
* A store gift card can often
be used only at the store
where it was purchased (or
related stores). Some are used
for purchases in selected
malls. Other gift cards, such'as
those with a connection to
MasterCard or VISA, can typi-
cally be used wherever their
credit cards are accepted.
Some gift cards allow you to
get cash at an ATM.
The information above
comes from the American
Bankers Association Educa-
tion Foundation.


Experian (888) 397-3742 and
Equifax (800) 525-6285.
* Report any suspected
fraud to your bank and credit
card issuers immediately, so
they can start to close
accounts and clear your
name right away. You may.
also contact the Federal
Trade Commission's ID Theft
Consumer Response Center
toll-free at (877) IDTHEFT.
By law you are only liable
for the first $50 of unautho-
rized charges against a credit
card account. Still, restoring
your identity can be a
tremendous inconvenience.
It's worth your while to exer-
cise a little preventive main-
tenance. Protect yourself
against this terrible crime,

TRAVEL


Small ship cruising along the Eastern seaboard


Once again in my
research for a client
(as in many cases), I
have come upon a product
that just gets me excited.
You must understand
that being in the travel
industry means you are
inundated with materials
on everything from bed &
breakfasts in the tiniest
towns, to luxurious tent
accommodations while on
safari, to various cruise
vessels that seem to enter
into service every day.
Every cruise line, tour
operator, hotel chain,
airline, resort and tourism
board from various
destinations send you
information, both in print
and electronically. I would
love to have the brain
power to keep it all in the
front of my mind, but just
the enormous amount of
collateral, specials,
promotions, and what's
new and exciting makes it
impossible to remember
the many details.
Don't get me wrong, the
information is important
and necessary, there's just
so very much of it. Back to
telling you what I am
excited about.
My client was interested
in cruising, but not
necessarily on large ship.
We discussed options,
such as river cruising in
both Europe and Asia, and
they decided they wanted
to be closer to home. We
hit upon cruising Ameri-
can Cruise Lines. What
was so exciting is that this'
cruise line has grown so

years and has come into

ACL has four American

vessels: the American
Eagle and American Glory,
each boasting 49 passen-
gers, and the larger
American Spirit and
American Star, with 100
passengers.
All of these vessels
include spacious state-
rooms averaging 220
square feet, many with
private balconies. In fact

have large windows that

no flights at all are neces-
sary.

They are very comfortable,

The first patent for gold-filled
cases was given to J. Boss
on May 3, 1859. Gold-filled
watch cases are far more
common than solid gold
cases. Only about 5% of the
cases were solid gold. In
making the gold-filled case,
the following process was
used: two bars of gold, 12"
long, 2"wide, and 1/2" thick
were placed on either side of
a bar of base metal. The bar
of base metal was 3/4" thick
and the same length and
width as the gold bars.
These three bars were sol-
dered together under pres-
sure at high temperature.
The bars were sent through
rolling mills' under tremen-
dous pressure; this rolling
was repeated until the
desired thickness was
reached. The new sandwich-
type gold was now in a sheet.
Discs were punched out of
the sheet and pressed in a
die to form a dish-shaped
cover. Finally -the. lip, or
ridge, was added. The bezel,
snap, and dust caps were
added in the finishing room.
Gold-filled cases are usually
1Okt or 14ktgold. The num-
ber of years indicated the
duration of guarantee that
the gold on the case would
not wear through to the base
metal. The cases were usu-
ally marked ten-year, fifteen-
year,' twenty-year, twenty-five
year, or thirty-year. The high-
er the number of years indi-
cated that more gold was
used and that a higher origi-
nal pricewas paid.

The real attraction to
this cruise line is its
itineraries. Ranging from
six- to 14-night cruises,
there are many to choose
from, from Bangor, Maine
to Sanford, Fla. Each port
offers history, culture and
natural beauty. Here is a
glimpse of itineraries.

something different, such

New England islands
cruise, where lobster is
served in various forms
every day.

there is limited availability
due to their size. There are
staterooms that do accom-
modate single passengers
at an additional cost.
Fares range from $2,800
per person, double occu-
pancy. If you are interested
in American small ship
cruising, this may very well
be an option for you.

'Dirty Rotten Scoundrels' on stage at Sunrise


By Shelley Koppel
Entertainment writer
FORT PIERCE -
Stephen Patterson enjoys
playing a creep. As small-
time con man Freddy Ben-
son in the national touring
company production of
"Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,"
he tries to make the small-
time crook loveable.
Treasure Coast audi-
ences can watch Mr. Pat-
terson at work at the Sun-
rise Theatre on Dec. .11.
He spoke recently about
what a wonderful role it is.
"It's surprisingly fantas-
tic," he said. "It's amazing,
having the audience still
like you after conning all
those people. You end up
rooting for your favorite
con.
"That's the fun part," he
said. "It allows you to
escape reality. Sometimes
we do root for the bad
guys and these guys are
fun."
The show is a musical
based on the 1988 film of
the same name, starring
Michael.Caine and Steve
Martin. It tells the story of
two con men living on the
French Riviera.
One, Lawrence Jameson,
is suavely talking rich
women out of their money
while the other, Freddy
Benson, swindles women
by telling them about his
grandmother's poor
health.
The two decide the Riv-
iera isn't big enough for
both of them and they
make a bet that the first
one to swindle an heiress

out of $50,000 wins and
the other leaves town..
Mr. Patterson, who had
been playing leading man
roles in shows such as "Lit-
tie Women" and "Les Mis-
6rables," wanted this role.
"I saw the original
Broadway production and
I wanted to go in a new
direction, in a character
role," he said. "I asked to
audition and I was lucky
enough to be cast."
Mr. Patterson preferred
the role of the low-rent
Freddy to the more urbane
Lawrence.
"There's an age differ-
ence," he said. "Lawrence


is older My personality is
closer to Freddy. I related
to the guy who has an off-
the-cuff lifestyle. That was
my attitude when I was
younger and I saw a bit of
myself."
While the show remains
close to: the movie, the
ending in the show is a lit-
tle bit of a surprise.
"It's almost word-for-
word from an earlier ver-
sion, 'Bedtime Story,' with
Marlon Brando and David
Niven," he said. "There's a
bit of an unexpected twist
that gets the audience,
which is great.
"It's one of the funniest


shows I've ever seen, one
of the funniest shows I've
ever done. Around the cor-
ner is another laugh. If
you're in the mood to for-
get the economy and get
some comedy therapy,
book a night out."
That's no con.

"Dirty Rotten
Scoundrels" comes to the
Sunrise Theatre, 117S. Sec-
ond St., Fort Pierce, on
Thursday, Dec. 11 for one
performance at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $55 and $45.

Aries-March 21-April 19
Life is going your way. The
key to keeping it going is to
follow your heart and trust
your instincts. Your very first
impressions are always the
best. You always speak your
truth. The way to tell who is
on your side is how they
react when you speak it. A
friend will bless you for
telling it. A negative response
is someone not on your side.
Be discerning.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Your strong sense of direction
has returned. You have sur-
vived recent unplanned
changes. Worrying about
things that might have been
*is wasted energy. Stay close
to your loved ones. Ask for
guidance from close friends
when needed. There is much
to learn and do in the
upcoming new year. It will be
all and more than you could
ask for.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
Your renewed self esteem is
moving you toward your
higher goals. You know what
you want. Keeping focused
on your main goals is a chal-
lenge and should be the top
priority. It keeps the negativity
of the world from sidetrack-'
ing you. Everyone wants a
part of you. Be true to spirit,
self, family and the world and
everything will be OK.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
Speaking from the heart is
the only path that keeps you
centered. It keeps you from
taking on unwanted respon-
sibilities. Make a new years
resolution that you will make
a little time for fun things.
You have earned the right.
You don't have to be all
things to all people anymore.
Follow this plan and you will
soar into and through the
new year ahead.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
Your life is moving quite nice-
ly, thank you. You are taking
the lighter touch. You handle
family responsibilities very
well. You are having more
fun in life. Start your day with
gratitude and blessings for all
you have been given and
more will always be on the
way. Now continue to find
more fun, creative causes.
Yours is a great life.

the first Kids Feeding Kids
student food drive, which
took place fom late Septem-
ber through mid-November.
Treasufr Coast Food Bank
received a national grant
award from Tyson Foods to
support youth volunteerism
and launch a student-led
food drive to alleviate hunger
in the community.
The project was spear-
headed locally by high school
student.leaders participating
in Youth Leadership St. Lucie,
a prograni of the Executive
Roundtable of St. Lucie and
Indian River State College.
The drive was a collabora-
tion of thousands of students
from St. Lucie County
schools working together
with educators.and commu-
nity leaders to help meet the
increased demand for food
assistance as the holiday sea-
son approached.
Students from Fort Pierce
Central, Westwood, Lincoln
Park Academy, Centennial,
Treasure Coast, Port St. Lucie
and John Carroll high.
schools, conducted food
drives within their individual
schools and reached out to
St. Lucie County's elemen-
tary and junior high schools
to engage younger children
in the project.
Studeat appeals to St.
Lucie County businesses,
organizations and residents
were a'so a big source of the
non-perishable food items
collected.
A food drive competition,
with awards for collecting
the most food, provided
motivation for students to set
and reach goals for the food
drive.
Winners in the student
food drive competition are:
'Ist ilace:.Fort Pierce Cen-
tral High School, $750; 2nd
place: Lincoln ParkAcademy,
$500; 3rd place: John Carroll
Catholic High School, $250.
Food assistance requests
have skyrocketed, especially
in the past few months, due
to the high rateof unemploy-
ment, home 'foreclosures
and increasedcosts of food.
"The, student food drive
turried out: be 'one of the
largest single source of food
collected his year," said.
Laura Aleander, executive
director d the Food Bank.
"The neid for food assis-
tance in our community has
more ttan doubled since
January The: students who
participated in the food drive
project provided a tremen-
dous amount of help to fami-
lies aid individuals. We are

denl who collected and
doaited food to help those in

Rodriguez said. "I don't
he Port want to give them any
ys bas- excuses.
e of the "We are going to make a
reasure push this season."
The first few times on the
an 8-18 hardwood this season, Port
e wore St. Lucie has shown the
1 coach ability to do just that. In the
opes to Port St. Lucie Tip-Off Tour-
ith the nament, the Jaguars scored
of sev- a pre-season win over Lin-
eit raw coin Park Academn 76-64.
Sophomore Levious
young Louissaint netted 22 points
and added three assists in
the victory, while Corey
Reid chipped in 19 points
and seven rebounds.
Though Reid is a 10th-grad-
er as well, Rodriguez sees a
bright future for his bud-
ding superstar.
"I expect big things from
him," Rodriguez said. "He
could be a great basketball
player. He does a lot of good
things for us.
"He's so physical, athletic
and composed."
Also contributing in the
win was Chris Harris with
12 points. Harris trans-
ferred from Lincoln Park
ES last season and quickly
made an impact with the
Jaguars.
This season, Rodriguez is
Confident the junior will put
an even bigger stamp on
the team.
"He's one guy I'm looking
to see grow into a leader-
ship role," Rodriguez said.
uart "He's starting to understand
things more - when to take
it (the shot), whea npt to
take it, how to control the
team.
"This year, it's going to be
more his team."
Port St. Lucie continued
to roll in its second game of
the tournament, beating
city rival St. LucieWest'Cen-
tennial 82-63. While Reid
scored a game-high' 28
points and Frank Martin
added nine, an even more
indicative sign of the team's
depth and promise is that
all 12 players scored.
"We're getting some nice
chemistry on the floor,"
Rodriguez said. "These guys
also playedduring the sum-
. mer and hang out with each
other outside of basket-
ball."
Despite tie progress
S made, Rodrigtez knows his
squad is still relatively inex-
perienced. Cas in point
was the tean's season
opener against bouth Fork.
The Jaguars poured out of
'the gate, taking a17-8 lead
after the first period.
However, mistakes late in
the game proved costly, as
Port St. Lucie dropped the
contest, 64-60.
"We played OK,"
Rodriguez said. "We hid too
many, turnovers dowt the
stretch. We showed our
youth.

. "South Fork is a senior-
laden ball club. They're a
'big team that is experi-

"Still, I was impressed
with our effort. I think once

ing of how we need to play,
the quicker we will grow as
a team."
For the seven-year coach
who was a member of the
first basketball team at Port

build a successful program
- including the school's
first back-to-back district
titles - has been the high-
light of his young career.
