The helicopter can
travel 152 miles per hour
and lift 6,283 pounds -

ST. LUCIE COUNTY - With a
$61 million reduction in revenue,
St. Lucie County is operating on a
budget that leaves little room for
error.
Any increase in expenses will
create a problem, county admin-
istrator Dpug Anderson said last
week.
"The county is running on an
extremely tight budget," he said.
"Not only are tax revenues down,
but all revenues are down."
The 2008-09 budget is down,

agree to


no raises

Move will avoid layoffs,
district officials hope
By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
ST. LUCIE COUNTY - Teachers
and other St. Lucie County School
District employees have agreed to
forego salary increases for the 2008-
09 school year, in the wake of the
district facing a $20 million shortfall
in revenue.
Vicky Rodriguez, vice president of
the Classroom Teachers Association,
said last week she's been involved in
negotiations for 15 years and "has
never seen anything like this.
"On the one hand, it's difficult to
,have to choose between that, (no
raises) or preserving jobs. I have the
responsibility to preserve jobs."
She noted that' teachers in Palm
Beach County received salary
increases, but the -district has had
layoffs.
Superintendent Michael Lannon
said the agreement shows the dis-
trict is working together as a family
in the best interest of students.
"We're in the worst budgetary
times of modern history," he said.
"We have to make priority decisions
and one of the priority decisions is
that we are in this together."
'The district has cut'$15 million
from its budget and was notified in
November it faces another $5 mil-
lion shortfall, he said.
Tim )Bargeron, chief financial offi-
cer for the district, said to deal with
the reductions, the district trans-
ferred money slated for capital out-

from $187 million for the 2007-08
budget to $126 million.
To adopt a balanced budget,
the county froze salaries, for this
coming year, he said, adding that
no raises are provided for anyone,
including constitutional officers,
such as the sheriff.
And as employees leave, those
positions are not being filled,
unless absolutely necessary, Mr.
Anderson said.
The county will begin no new
capital projects this year. Plans to
relocate the community services
building and expand the jail med-
ical wing from 12 to 40 beds are


on hold, Mr. Ander- I llghe

ST. LUCIE COUNTY - Areas
of the St. Lucie County Sheriff's
Office normally bustling with
people trying to solve crimes
were crammed last Saturday
with folks wrapping gifts for
needy families.
"It's wonderful we can help
people in .the community," said
Natalie E Smith, a receptionist at
the sheriff's office who wore an
elf's uniform.
The room where she wrapped
gifts was filled with toys and
games such as Chicken Dance


Elmo, Hannah Montana dolls,
the Deluxe Roller Desk, Topple,
basketballs and various other
toys.
Donations also included at'
least 100 bicycles.
Shelia Randazzo, the Christ-
mas family coordinator for the
sheriff's office, said the gifts
would go to more than 400 fami-
lies in the community.
Residents and businesses
donated many of the gifts, Ms.
Randazzo said. Wal-Mart and
residents at' Spanish Lakes were
among the donors.
Frank and Al's gave free pizza
to customers who brought gifts.


Others donated more than
$8,000, and Ms. Randazzo used
those dollars to buy toys.
The downturn in the economy
did not severely impact this
year's gift drive, she said.
"We were down a little," she
said.
The gifts were either delivered
on Monday or people picked
then up..Families also received
gift cards for food.
Ms. Randazzo said schools
submitted names of needy fami-
lies. She talked to others on the

Pageant officials target St. Lucie neighborhood for show

ST. LUCIE COUNTY - The Flori-
da license holder for the Miss USA
pageant is looking to bring the
show to St. Lucie County.
Grant Gravitt Jr., executive pro-
ducer of Miss Florida USA, has
been scouting talent, sponsors and
directors north of Palm Beach
County.
To date, the show has largely
drawn talent from Miami-Dade,
Broward and Palm Beach counties.
But Mr. Gravitt and his col-
leagues at Tel-Air Interests, which
own the local pageant rights, have
Fort Pierce and Port St. Lucie in
their sights.
"The Treasure.Coast is becoming
one of the fastest growing regions


in Florida and the nation," he said.
"This is the hot area, and certainly,
we want to bring these opportuni-
ties to young ladies here."
And the county is ripe for the
picking.
The county is one of the fastest
growing in the country, according
to census data.
And pageant organizers envision
taking advantage of that growth
with a Miss Tradition USA show, for
instance, with contestants from
the large development in western
Port St. Lucie.
The group plans to arrange
meetings with local groups for a
venture that they say will not only
benefit' participants, but Fort
Pierce and Port St. Lucie as well.

THE FUNCTION OF DIFFERENT TEETH

Q: My daughter bites her fingernails incessantly. Can the habit have dental repercussions?
A: Nail-biting is a habit that has no up side. In addition to the stubby, unsightly condition it
creates with fingers, the habit also can cause oral health problems. That's because any activity
that involves using the teeth in an unnatural way for an extended period increases the/
likelihood of injury to the temporomandibular joint, the front of either ear, clenching action of
biting one's nails will stretch the jaw muscles. That stretching will create an imbalance in the
TMJ and that can lead to pain.
If your daughter has developed this habit at a very young age, she may also be heading for a situation in which
the pressure of the biting can create a gap between her front teeth. And, the type of individual who develops a
nail:biting habit is often the type of person who is prone to picking at her gums. Some dentists and physicians
recommend coating nails and fingers with unpleasant tasting-but non-toxic-lotion or pepper to discourage the
habit'Talk with ;our dentist about strategies for getting your daughter to drop her habit. Otherwise, future
treatment may be needed either to straighten teeth or address the TMJ problem.

Remembering 'Mac' Mascioli

Late civic leader spent his life bettering his community


By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
I.A. "Mac" Mascioli didn't
often appear in the head-
lines, but in his own quiet
way, he did about as much
as anyone to improve the
St. Lucie County commu-
nity, friends say.
"He was just willing to
work to do anything that
benefited the community,"
said . former Fort Pierce
Mayor William Dannahow-
er. "He was a man who
truly cared about people.
He cared about children."
Mr. Mascioli, 76, died
Dec. 8 at Lawnwood
Regional Medical Center
and Heart Institute.
His death came less than
two months before one of
his projects was to become
reality.
For 20 years, he was
involved in the effort to get
a new federal .courthouse
built and was a member of


I.A. Mascioli
a community task force
that supported the project,
Mr. Dannahower said.
Norman H. Penner Jr.,
chief executive officer of
the Boys and Girls Club of
St. Lucie County, said Mr.
Mascioli traveled to Wash-
ington, D.C., in support of
the courthouse.
"I'm really saddened he
won't be there for the
groundbreaking (sched-
uled for Feb. 10)," Mr. Pen-
ner said.


Mr. Penner said he knew
Mr. Mascioli for the past 10
years and gave him a lot of
credit for having the vision
of creating a Boy's and
Girl's Club in St. Lucie
County.
The two men shared a
bond of growing up as
members of a boys club.
Mr. Mascioli pushed for a
center in Port St. Lucie at a
time when the organiza-
tion didn't have much
money.
"It was quite a leap of
faith for them to purchase
and commit themselves to
such an asset," he said.
But the mortgage was
paid off in less than two:
years, he said.
Mr. Mascioli also worked
toward a club facility at the
Human Resource Develop-
ment Center in northwest
Fort Pierce. It was named
after him.
Mr. Penner said Mr. Mas-

activities and has delayed
facilities, maintenance
and repair projects.
Mr. Lannon said the dis-
trict, which employs 5,000,
has also saved more than
$2 million by. not filling
more than 40 positions.
The district is doing its
best to maintain the pro-
grams it has, Mr. Bargeron
said.
In view of the situation,
Ms. Rodriguez said, the
teachers feel that "the
quality of service for kids
is the main priority.
"At this time, we do not
believe it's feasible (for the
district) to provide more
compensation," she said.
A 2 percent step increase
for all employees would
cost the district some $7
million, Mr. Lannor said.
Ms. Rodriguez said the
announcement doesn't


mean a contract has been
finalized.
"There is nothing to
agree to," she said.
The district and repre-
sentatives of employee
unions will continue to
meet regularly, Ms.
Rodriguez said.
School board member
Judi Miller said she's
pleased the district has
shown solidarity during
the crisis.
The district needs to
seek relief from the Florida
Legislature and urge legis-
lators to end requirements
that are not funded by the
state, and delay required
class size reductions.
The Legislature needs to
provide additional money
or at least give the districts
more flexibility in spend-
ing the state dollars, Mrs.
Miller said.

Pharmacy technician accused


of stealing 40,000 pills


By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
ST. LUCIE COUNTY - In
what authorities said on
Monday is the latest arrest
in an epidemic, a pharmacy
technician was accused of
stealing 40,000 oxycodone
pills to sell on the streets.
Emily Nicole Humphrey,
21, of 8303 Paso Robles
Blvd., Fort Pierce, was

Gold
Gold today, as much as in
the past, is a metal which
seems to embody the
warmth and brightness,
the power and strength, of
the sun. The Inca of South
America, once skilled find-
ers and miners of gold and
consummate metal-
smiths, referred to gold as
"The Sweat of the Sun",
contrasting its warmth with
the coolness of the more
common metal silver-as
"The Tears of the Moon".
For long periods of human
history, it has been possi-
ble for metal workers to
attain the melting point of
gold in fairly simple fur-
naces, using charcoal for
fuel and hand-bellows to
pump air through them.
Roughly the same temper-
ature level was needed to
smelt iron and copper and
the technology to achieve
it was known and under-
stood in many parts of the
world. Most importantly,
heat of this intensity could
be used to turn solid gold
into its liquid form so that it
could be poured and cast
into new shapes. Because
this level of heat was rela-
tively easy to achieve,
masterpieces.of cast-gold
work could be created by
goldsmiths working with
the simplest of tools and
equipment

char ged
with traf-
ficking in
oxycodone
and posses-
sion of oxy- . 6
codone with -
intent to sell
or deliver.
Within
the last two
weeks in an Humphrey
unrelated
case, deputies had arrested
a pharmacy technician at a
Walgreen's in Fort Pierce
and accused her of stealing
2,000 oxycodone pills.
St. Lucie County Sheriff
Ken Mascara said the arrests
stemmed from an increased
effort to deal with prescrip-
tion drug abuse.
During the past year, he,
said, deputies arrested more
than 200 people on charges
of sale or illegal possession
of prescription drugs.
The arrests for illegal use
of prescription drugs is
close to those related to
street drugs, such as mari-
juana and cocaine, he said.
What especially con-
cerned him was that the
number of deaths from
overdoses involving pre-
scription drugs rose from 26
to 40 during the last year, he
said.
Sheriff Mascara said that
prompted him to assign an
extra detective to handle
such cases.
In the latest case, deputies
arrested Ms. Humphrey
after a confidential inform-
ant paid her $2,000 for 2,000
oxycodone pills.


Pageant
From page Al
As part of the prepara-
tion for the contest, partic-
ipants get training in pub-
lic speaking, networking,
etiquette, business com-
munication and philan-
thropy.
"We really believe that
we are developing tomor-
row's leaders today," Mr.
Gravitt said. "This' is the
next step towards bigger
and better things."
Apart -from providing
scholarships and free
housing for winners, the
pageant also offers bene-
fits' for its host cities or
regions.


Based on an interview
with Ms. Humphrey and
other information, authori-
ties believe she took 5,000
oxycodone pills a month
during an eight-month peri-
od from Oceanside Pharma-
cy, located at 1118 Colon-
nades Drive, Fort Pierce.
However, the manager of
the pharmacy, when con-
tacted by investigators, told
them he did not know the
pills were missing.
"I can't imagine anyone
losing 5,000 of anything and
not being aware of it," Sher-
iff Mascara said.
Investigators don't believe
Ms. Humphrey was using
the pills.
"She was selling them to
make a better life for she
and her children," Sheriff
Mascara said.
If convicted, he said, she
faces a mandatory mini-
mum penalty of 25 years in
prison.
Generally, he said, the
street price of oxycodone is
$10 per pill, while the cost to
pharmacies is about 30-
cents per pill.
Besides going after the
dealers, Sheriff- Mascara
said, his office works with
medical providers and phar-
macists to identify people
who are doctor-shopping to
obtain pills.
The Sheriff's Office also
has a program to reduce
opportunities for people to
steal prescription drugs.
People can dispose of

applauded the group and
its contribution to her

TREASURE COAST -
The Deaf &.Hard of
Hearing Services of the
Treasure Coast is in need
of hearing aid donations
of all types and in any
condition.
Many people wonder
what to do with their old
units that just take up
drawer space. When
donated, DHHS has them
refurbished and then they
are provided to people in
the local community who
could not otherwise afford
one.
For many sufferers of
hearing loss, purchasing a
new hearing aid may be
cost prohibitive. When

Bad construction

The new construction in Fort Pierce seems to not offer any
U-turns along U.S. 1. We can't get to the businesses. It makes
it difficult for patrons to turn around. It's too bad.

More on poor construction

I live in an apartment complex off U.S. 1 in Fort Pierce.
Because of the new road construction fiasco taking place on
the highway, it is nearly impossible to turn into the complex.
SThere are school buses that have to turn into the shopping
center adjacent to the complex in order to turn around to get
back into the apartments to pick up the many children that
live here.
The new turning lanes they have been built do nothing
more than inconvenience and endanger the many pedestri-
ans and drivers that have to navigate this impossible terrain.
Up and down U.S. 1, there are turning lanes to nowhere
and blockades to roads, grocery stores, restaurants and busi-
nesses.
I can't imagine that an-engineering team that's being paid a
lot more than minimum wage would come up with the idea
that this would help the community. Why wasn't this pro-
posed to the citizens first? Why not let us, the ones who have
to drive the roads everyday, have a say in where we feel we
need a turning lane and a red light?
Once again, the powers-that-be have taken the initiative to
waste our money on poorly-planned construction projects.

Work out.woes

Whoever had the bright idea to put a gym in the new park-
ing garage in downtown Fort Pierce should lose his or her job.
What a fantastic way to encourage vandalism and rob-
beries. I can't imagine wanting to "work out" in a parking
garage while on my lunch break. Who is going to foot the
security bill?

A holiday poem

Brightly colored lights of the season .
Frame windows and doors in white and gold
'Dotbushes and trees in red and blue,
Liglts that blink madly in alternating patterns
On fences, posts and roofpeaks,
Lights that twinkle on stiffly moving automated reindeer
Tethered to sleighs laden with gold and green foil boxes; a
carizval of lights and moving electronic wizardry that soon
rires the C's, but impishly prompts the mind to question.
So much lightand so many live in darkness?
Light to commemorate an illustrious birth,
An ancientfestival of lights, a promise ofsalvation and hope
for all,
A time, too, of painful heartfelt remembrance of darkness
past and present.
Remembrance of those we loved and lost of our brave men
and womenfightingonforeign soil.
Pray we must that their lives be spared.
Letyour love fly like doves across oceans
And deliver messages ofyour deep appreciation oftheir vigi-
lance.
Remembrance, too, of the oppressed, the starving, the dis-
eased in body and spirit.
Pray that the maniacs and the misguided who control our
destiny
May see the light, sit down together,
Share the bread ofpeace and drink the wine ofbrotherhood.
Asyou liftyourglass to toast
The health and happiness ofthose you love,
Include in your words of hopefor a brighter tomorrow
Those who cannot celebrate with you thejoy of this beauti-
ful season
Pray to God, whatever you conceive Him to be,
That He will watch over us
ThatHe will touch our hearts with his love
And make of us all, the different peoples of the world, broth-
ers and sisters, sharing with one another the love ofpeace.

Deputy taking advantage

I guess I can understand the sense in a deputy keeping his
vehicle for driving to and from work, but I object when I see

Wishing you a year of good health


This has been a
difficult year for me.
Roy's illness pro-
gressed and then he died
in September. I am making
progress and I'll report
back in January. For now, I
want to send you wishes
for a healthy and happy
New Year. We could all use
it.
While I wish you good
health, I know that each of
us has to take responsibili-
ty for some of our health
care. No one can promise
that you won't get sick, but
you can lessen your risk.
Get the mammogram
and the colonoscopy. Get a
flu shot if it is recommend-
ed for your age and health.
If you need to lose weight,
now is the time. Everyone
should get more exercise,
whether weight loss is an-
issue, or not. It will help
control your blood pres-
sure and lower your risk of
diabetes.
Above all, stop smoking.
Smoking kills. There is no
safe cigarette.
I wish you the gift of
time. There is an irony that
with all the technology
and laborsaving devices,
everyone has less time,
rather than more. Make
time for yourself and for
your friends and family. It's
so sad to see a mom and

I Stress is a health risk and
I'd love to wish a stress-
free life for everyone. Since
that is impossible, I hope
you will try to lower your
stress level. Again, exercise
helps.
I have begunworking

How is this supporting my security?

More on dealer fees

I'm writing in response to the letter "What's up with the
dealer fee?" that was posted Nov. 28.
What's up with you? I could not in any way know for sure if
you were one of the first people to set up a lawn chair at Sand-
sprit Park to watch the fireworks put on by Toyota of Stuart,
but as a betting person, I would imagine that you did watch
them from somewhere.
With that said, and reading about the many generous
things that Toyota of Stuart has been involved" with in this
community, I would, if I was' in the market for a new Toyota,
definitely be happy to give them the measly $399.50 dealer-
ship fee just to keep the business local and feel that in some-
way helped to contribute to giving back to the community in
which we reside.
Editor's note: John Pierson of Toyota of Stuart was contacted
fora response to the original rant, but declined comment.

Concern for the unemployed

I have a pretty deep concern and sincere question regard-
ing this depression or recession we are all suffering right now.
I have two adult friends who have recently lost their jobs
(both between 30 and 40). Does anyone have any idea how
nearly impossible it is to find a Florida Employment Agency
or (One Stop Career Centers) in any of the surrounding coun-
ties?
After spending several hours between the telephone and
Internet trying to show them both that the centers were easy
to find and get to, I am so appalled at what a person has to go
through to even find someone who thinks they have the con-
tact information for you.
Just finding a phone number that wasn't handled by a
recording telling you the numbers were not working numbers
or that the lines were too busy and to please try back later or
they would ring and ring and ring with no answer.
Finally, I got to speak with someone from the agency who
told me, due to government cutbacks, the office is now a
mobile unit with no real address or location. I challenge any-
one reading this to try to find any real information. Pretend
that you are actually out of work and looking for a location to


While I have had to put
my singing lessons on hold
this year because of Roy's
illness, I hope to begin
them again some day
soon. The deep breathing
is a great stress reliever,
much as I imagine yoga or
tai chi to be. I like singing
because it's fun. I sing
funny songs that I can belt
out. How can you not feel
better after a round of
show tunes?
Find your passion and
enjoy it. Even if you can
only spend an hour a day
at it, it's worth finding the
time.
I wish that everyone
could be surrounded by
loving family and friends.
You can't do much about
the family, or lack of one,
but you can do something
about the loneliness. Joinf a
club or organization that
interests you. Volunteer.
The community needs you
and it will remind you of
how fortunate you are.
Gather a circle of
friends. If they are far
away, keep in touch via the
phone or e-mail. It is
important for good
physical and mental
health to share.
If you are a caregiver,
make time for yourself. I
have learned this lesson
the hard way. I couldn't


help Roy cope with his
Alzheimer's and Parkin-
son's diseases when I was
so run down, emotionally
and physically, that I
couldn't see straight. I had
to learn to ask for help,
from organizations and
from friends. I learned to
say no when I couldn't do
something, and yes to
myself when it meant
taking time to go out and
do something for me. It is
not being selfish to take
care of yourself. You
cannot be a good caregiver
if you are not feeling well
physically and emotional-
ly.
Remember that lifd and
health are precious gifts.
Treasure them.
If you are ill, I wish you a
return, goodd health. If
your illness is chronic and
you have good and bad
days, I wish you many
more good ones. If some-
one you know is ill or
:alone, reach out to them..:
You wiill never regret
helping someone out
when they're down.
Happy New Year!

phone number you are given or find. You will be shocked.
I would think that the one area that our government
would want and need to preserve would be one that
assists our citizens, who actually want to and are able to
work, find honest work.
It seems to me that the ones suffering the most are any legal
Americans of working age or senior adults who don't have an
annual income over $100,000.

government employee would have to live with the working.
hours, wages and Social Security they believe are enough for
citizens that put them in office to live on?
If each one of them who are personally making $5,000 or
more over the minimum law wage, refused a wage increase:
instead of voting to increase it and offered to take a reduction
of merely 2 or 3 percent annually, maybe we could afford to:
help our jobless find good, honest work, or maybe even give,
up a second or third job to make it available to someone else.

Cell phone use

Too many people think that it's their right to drive and talk
on their cell phone. It happens frequently that while talking,;
they run a stop sign, drive through a red light or miss the
school bus that has stopped. It's time that Florida joins the;
rest of the states that have cracked down on cell phone use :
while driving. You could hurt yourself or someone else.

been elected. My prayers are with him and I hope he sur-o:
rounds himself with great people. We will praise him when,
he makes a good choice and criticize him when he makes';,
poor ones.
If he doesn't do a good job, vote him out in the next elec-,'
tion. But criticizing him before he gets in office is negative.

Blood drive helps

By Jay Meisel

PORT ST. LUCIE - For a
Port St. Lucie father whose
job is to take blood dona-

an especially personal sig-
nificance.

Blood Centers, has a 2-
year-old son, Gibbs
Antoine, who needs regular
blood transfusions because
of a brain tumor.
Last week, Port St. Lucie
city employees and area
residents donated 97 units
of blood in a drive started
to benefit Gibbs.
City employees also held
a bake sale and raised $675
to help Mr. Antoine with
medical expenses not cov-
ered by insurance.
Mr. Antoine planned to
participate by taking blood
donations, but Gibbs need-
ed to be hospitalized.
He said his son became
ill in October 2007, but that
doctors didn't discover the
brain tumor until late April.
As part of the treatment,
Gibbs "needs blood trans-
fusions every month," his
father said.
Doctors removed part of
the brain tumor. Radiation

is being used to try to elim-

It's difficult for Gibbs,
who is hospitalized every
month, and doesn't like it
when needles are inserted
into his skin, Mr. Antoine
said.
When Gibbs returns
home, oftentimes he has
no appetite, Mr. Antoine
said.
He said it's an effort to
get to Gibbs to eat anything
immediately after the treat-


reduced from nine to
three, he said.
Even cleanliness has suf-
fered under the reduc-
tions.
"We're not cleaning the
county's facilities as often
as we did before," Mr.
Anderson said.
Besides cutting back on
services, the county asked
employees to take on addi-
tional responsibilities, he

Gibbs, whose blood type
is 0 positive, will need
monthly blood transfu-

father said.

"Our people are working
hard, and a lot of our peo-
ple have doubled up. on
their job responsibilities
with no increase in pay,
and they're working a lot of
hours," Mr. Anderson said.
He's concerned the
county will face additional
cuts, as revenues are likely
to continue to decline, he
said.

cioli also created an
endowment to provide
scholarships for club
members who attend
Florida Atlantic University.
That endowment has
grown to the point where
the first scholarship should
be awarded next year, Mr.
Penner said.
When Mr. Mascioli was a
founding member of the
board of directors for the
boys and girls club, it was
only an idea, Mr. Penner
said.
Now it's a $3 million
organization serving 4,800
children at 19 different
locations, he said.
Mr. Mascioli moved to St.
Lucie County from Miami
more than 50 years ago.
He was the state circula-
tion manager for the Trea-
sure Coast edition of the
Miami Herald.
After the Herald closed
that edition, he became
owner of RE/Max Coastal
Realty, which is now Allen
Real Estate.
Marge Milam, who
worked with Mr. Mascioli
at the RE/Max, said he was
"an individual who helped
so many people, but never
sought recognition. Every-
one in this office has the
utmost respect for him."
Besides being involved
in real estate, Mr. Mascioli
served on the boards of
directors tor the St. Lucie
County Chamber of Com-



Drive
From page Al
Many of the families
were having problems
because they lost a loved
one or someone lost a job.
Even some with two
incomes needed help, she
said
"Some of'them have two
incomes and can't make
ends meet and they have to
pay their bills so they can't
buy presents. That's where
we step in," she said.
Patti Lagesse, a resident
of Spanish Lakes Fairways,
wrapped gifts for the third
year.
"I thirk it's marvelous,"
she said.
Marie McNamara, the
wife of a deputy, said she
bought some gifts for the
effort..
The Sheriff's Office has
held the. gift drive for 15
years.
"It went from helping a
couple of families to what it
is now," Sheriff Ken Mas-
cara said.

their top 10 list of people to contact'

Way, Florida Employment
& Training Association, the
Treasure Coast Private
Industry Council, the
Exchange Center for
Abused Children, the Asso-
ciation for Retarded Citi-
zens and the Main Street
Committee.
He also served on the
Fort Pierce Housing
Authority board for 15
years, nine as chairman,
the St. Lucie County Sea-
port Advisory Committee,
the Sunrise Theatre Reno-
vation board, the St. Lucie
County Development
Corp. board and was a pre-
vious president of the
Rotary Club of Port St.
Lucie.
He also founded the
Young Floridians, was
chairman for two years of
the Treasure Coast Educa-
tion Summit, chairman for
two years of the Private
Industry Council, chair-
man for two years of the
Treasure Coast Work Force
Development Board and
was president of Sertoma.
He received a presiden-
tial award from the U.S.
Department of Labor and.
was named one of the five
most influential men in St.


Lucie County.
He was the first resident
ever to receive a key to the
city of Fort Pierce for his
work to build a safe space
shelter for battered and
abused women. It was
named after him.
Besides civic achieve-
ments, he was influential
in politics.
"Any candidate for office
had Mac Mascioli on their
top 10 list of people to con-
tact," Mr. Penner said.
His approval generally
resulted in the candidate
winning, Mr. Penner said.
During trips together to
the state capitol building,
Mr. Penner said, he was
astounded to find that
people from all over the
state knew Mr. Mascioli.
SMr. Penner said he's
heard that Mr. Mascioli
was a college roommate
and Sigma Nu Fraternity
brother of former U.S. Sen.
and Gov. Bob Graham.
Mr. Mascioli would also,
without seeking any recog-
nition, often spend his own
money to bay clothes or
pay a utility bill for a family
that needed help, Mr. Pen-
ner said.
"He did a lot of that
behind the scenes;" Mr.
Dannahower said.

Charitable giving and


feeling the holiday spirit


It was four days before
Christmas and Marianne
was completing her last
minute shopping. As she
pulled her car into the mall
parking lot, she quickly ran a
list through her head: video
game for grandson, photo
frame for Aunt Sue, crystal
vase for daughter-in-law.
Upon opening the door to
her favorite department
store, her eyes fell on a
beautiful Christmas tree.
The tree towered over the
nearby jewelry cases and it
shimmered with tinsel.
Drawn to the tree, Marianne
soon saw construction
paper ornaments tied with
ribbon that hung from the
branches. Each ornament
listed the name of a child
and a gift request. Marianne
paused and then began to

remove the colorful decora-
tions: Emily, Matthew,
Isabelle, Nathan. Armed
with ornaments, Marianne
smiled and began to shop.
Giving is abundant during
the holiday season. Each
year, American consumers
spend thousands of dollars
on purchasing gifts for
family, friends, and co-
workers. For example in
2006, the average shopper
spent a total of $906 on gifts.
In 2005, due to Americans'
generosity, the Toys for Tots
Campaign was able to
distribute 19 million toys to
7.5 million needy children.
In addition to purchasing
presents for family and
friends, many individuals
choose to make charitable
donations. Gifts made to
organizations that qualify.as
501(c)(3) not-for-profit
public charities are eligible
for income tax deductions.
Charitable contributions
made in 2008 may be
eligible as an income tax
deduction so long as there is
substantiating documenta-
tion.
All cash contributions
must be substantiated with

either a copy of the taxpay-
er's bank record reflecting.
the donation or there must
be a written communication
from the charity stating the
charity's name, date of
contribution, and amount of
the contribution.
Non-tash contributions
must be substantiated with
a receipt or with written
communication, as
described above, from the ,
charity.
For those persons with
taxable estates (estates over
$2 million in 2008), some
gifts to individuals may have
estate tax saving incentives.
For example, a taxpayer is
permitted an annual gift tax
exclusion amount of $12,000
per individual. If the
taxpayer is married, the
taxpayer and spouse are,'
permitted an annual gift tax
exclusion amount of $24,000
per individual. Removing,
$24,000 from a taxable
estate could save as much as
$10,800 in estate taxes. That
amount would be multiplied
with each additional
individual who receives a,
gift.
If an individual is interest-
ed in making substantial or
multiple charitable gifts, he
can set up a Charitable '
Remainder Trust or a
Charitable Lead Trust. With
a CRT, the donor can

safety tips

.For Hometown News
SNews@hometownnewsol.com
.'ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
The .St. Lucie County Fire
District is reminding resi-
dents to follow these safe-
ty tips when selecting and
decorating holiday trees.
,, When decorating a
tree, always use lights list-
ed by a testing laboratory.
Some lights are designed
'only for indoor or outdoor
iuse, but not both. Larger
tree lights should also
have some type of reflec-
tor rather than ,a bare
b'ulb.
S* Follow the manufac-
turer's instructions on
how to use tree lights. Any
string of lights with worn,
frayed or broken cords or
loose bulb connections
should not be used. Con-
nect no more than three
strands of push-in bulbs
and a maximum of 50
hulbs for screw-in bulbs.
;.* Always unplug Christ-
nij. tree lights before
leaving home or going to
bed.
* Bring outdoor electri-
cal lights inside after the
holidays to prevent haz-
ards and extend their life.
* Never use lit candles to
decorate a tree, and make
sure any lit candles in the
rpom are placed well away
from tree branches.
-* Try to keep live trees as
nioist as possible by giving
tSiem plenty of water daily.
BIo not purchase a tree
.that is dry or dropping
needles. Check for fresh,
green needles. And place
ybur tree in a sturdy tree
stand designed not to tip
over.
* Children are fascinated
with Christmas trees. Keep
a watchful eye on them
when around the tree and
do not let them play with
the wiring or lights. Store
matches and lighters up
high, out of reach, prefer-
ably in a locked cabinet.
* Make sure the tree is at
least 3 feet away from any
heat source, such as fire-
places and radiators. Try
to position the tree near
an outlet so that cords are
not running long dis-
tances. Do not place the
tree where it may block
exits.
* Safely dispose of the
tree when it begins drop-
-ping needles. Dried-out
trees are highly flammable
Stand should not be left in a
house or garage, or placed


against the house.

ell, another year
brought another
wonderful event.
The 2008 WGRV"The
Groove" jazz cruise that
sailed on a three-night
cruise from Port Canaveral
on Royal Caribbean's
Monarch of the Seas was
more of a jam session than
jazz concert.
The laid-back atmos-
phere helped make this a
very memorable occasion
for all jazz cruise partici-
pants. It was better than a
concert; it was an all-
inclusive, interactive jam
session.
The three-night-cruise
fare included the cruise
(including meals and
entertainment), port
charges, taxes, fees, fuel
surcharges, pre-paid
gratuities, a private
cocktail party and two
private jazz concerts. Early
booking fares (back in
January) started at $410
per person (it pays to be
early).
This year's headliners'
were national recording
artists Nlatt'.arsha on
guitar and lessie I on
saxophone.

At the cocktail party
(with cnmnlimentarv


drinks) we were able to
meet the artists and hang
out with them. Everyone
felt as though they were
part of something special
and they were. Both Jessie
J and Mr. Marsha would
step off the stage and go
out to the audience and
play and in some cases
(Jessie J) danced while
playing the saxophone.
Everyone was on the
*dance floor when they
picked up the tempo and
played some dance music.
It was definitely more than


talented musician getting
rave reviews in the smooth
jazz world' His music is a
combination of smooth
jazz, blues and a touch of
soul and funk and he is
great with the audience.
Jessie J is an equally
talented instrumentalist,
not to mention her soulful
vocals. Her mix of Latin
and contemporary jazz
has earned her recognition
from some of the top
recording artists. They
.were incredible together.
Their blendof talent and
personality showed with
every song.
Accompanying artists
were Carl "C-man" Ander-
son, who just recently cut
his first album, on drums;,
Kenny Harris on bass and
Rodney Williams on
keyboard. Matt, Carl and
Kenny are returning artists
for the smooth jazz cruise.
They had about two hours
for a sound check and
practice before they
performed together; it was
really something to
fitnessess.
They were such profes-
sionals they obviously did
not need much, because
the' played beautifully
together. We had a surpris-
ing touch when C-man's
girlfriend, iennifer Boone,-
A as called to the stage for
an impromptu song. She
belted out a soulful song
that brought e e r i ne to
their feet. What a voice.

almost identical with the
exception of the decor and
the names of the show
lounges, dining rooms,
.etc.
The cabins, although
small, were well appointed
and decorated with blues
and greens, teak, brass
and glass; quite lovely. The
ship is a little dated
(however not as much as
its sister), but that was to
be expected. The ship
made its debut November
1991 (refurbished in 2003)
and has been sailing the
short cruise itineraries,
which puts extra wear and
tear on a vessel. For a
three-night cruise it was
great.
The Monarch sailed
from her homeport of Los
Angeles, arrived in Port
Canaveral on Nov. 7 and
sailed her first Bahamas
cruise from the port on
Nov. 11. We sailed on the
second sailing to the
Bahamas.
We spent a day in /
Nassau (noon-1 1p.m.).
and were to spend the
second day in Coco Cay,
Bahamas Royal ,
Caribbean's private island.
However, bad weather and
high waves kept us from
* tendering into the island.
This was unfortunate
since we were looking to
spending a day at the
beach, but we cannot
controlthe weather and
although disappointing,
we had a relaxing day at
sea.
The exciting part of the
cruise was the private
meet and greet VIP cock-
tad pai r and two private
concerts for jazz partici-
pants who hailed from-
,California, Massachusetts,
'Connecticut, Pennsylva-
nia, Georgia and of course,
all over Florida, to take
part.

that happens, a person
must make quality-of-life
decisions when faced with
price tags ranging from
$1,000 to $6,000 for new


a concert.
Every evening we all
dined together in the same
area of the dining room.
Kudos to WGRV radio
station hosts and host-
esses. They were extremely
attentive to their group of
friends, both the partici-
pants and artists. They
and the artists visited the
various tables to touch
base with the group. This
made for, a veryJfriendly
atmosphere. I just love it
when it all comes together.
The artists were very easily
accessible for the partici-
pants for light discussions
and autograph signing.
WGRV is a nonprofit
radio station that has been

This being the second

BA Fire district urges residents to stay warm, safe


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
With bouts of cold weather
expected during'this time
of year, the St. Lucie Coun-
ty Fire District is urging
families to stay warm, but
also stay safe.
According to the Nation-


al Fire Protection Associa-
tion, nearly half of all
home-heating fires occur
during the winter months.
On average, NFPA
research show that heating
equipment is involved in
roughly 70,000 reported
U.S. home structure fires,
with associated loss of
more than 600 deaths,


almost 1,600 injuries and
more than $1 billion in
direct property damage.
Heating equipment is a
leading cause of home fire
deaths. Almost half of
home heating equipment
fires are reported during
December, January and
February.
Some simple steps can


prevent most heating-relat-
ed fires from happening.
* Keep anything that can
burn at least 3 feet away
from heating equipment,
such as the furnace, fire-
place, wood stove or
portable heater.
* Only use heating equip-
ment that has the label of a
recognized testing labora-

said. "It's the way you tell
the story that gives the
stamp of authenticity.
"He encouraged us to
think about how to use
language, to learn from
other people's works, to go
to museums, to stir yodr
soul and get the music to
come from a deeper
place."
Ms. Manchester began
her career performing in
clubs and working as a stu-
dio musician in New York
with another aspiring
singer/songwriter, Barry
Manilow.
"Barry and I were studio
singers and he was musical
director for an up-and-.
coming Bette Midler," she
said. "On her night off,
Bette came to see me with
him. She had just done her


first Johnny Carson show
and was getting ready for
Carnegie Hall.
S"She asked me to sing in
back of her and we created
what became the
Harlettes. It was quite a
fantastic adventure."
Ms. Manchester had told
Ms. Midler that she wanted
to be the headliner, and
with songs such as "Mid-
night Blue," "Through the.
Eyes of Love," "You Should
Hear How She Talks about
You" and "Don't Cry Out
Loud," she achieved her
dream and had her own
show at Carnegie Hall.
While artists such as Ali-
son Krauss, Roberta Flack
and Kathy Mattea have
covered her songs, her
favorite interpretation was
Barbra Streisand's per-
formance of "Just One Life-
time" at her wedding to
James Brolin.
"I had written it .a long
time ago and recorded it,"
Ms. Manchester said.
"When I heard she was
recording an albym for her
new husband, I sent it. She
loved the choruses but we
re-wrote the verses and
reconstructed a better,
song. She has such a
refined sense of herself.
Her instincts are perfect."

time off from touring to'
raise her family. She did
some acting and has been
writing for the theater. Her
current project is a musical
based on the popular
"Sweet Potato Queens"
books. She is glad to be on
the road again.
"I left the road to raise
my kids," she said. "It was a
big leap of faith. Returning
is even a bigger leap. What
I've discovered is I love
singing and have reverence
for the song.
"The blessing of my
career is that it has lasted
so long. Songs can change
lives and touch people. If I
didn't have to wear high
heels, I'd do eight shows a
week."


"This is a beautiful
show," Ms; Manchester
said. "It's a duo, with my
keyboard/guitarist
Stephan Oberhoff. We do
the- hits and unexpected'
songs. There are new
songs from my latest
album. It's about the jour-
ney of writing, as well as
singing. I love to tell the
stories behind the songs."

James Tucker
Week of 12-19-2008


Aries - March 21-April 19
During the holidays, count
your many blessings. This is a
time for thanksgiving and
sharing. The year has been
both fruitful and challenging.
Your edge is that you never
give up. The rewards far out-
weigh the snags along the
way. Make a list of your
blessings and show your
gratitude for all who have
helped get you safely
through thus far.

Taurus - April 20-May 20
This year has been good.
Next year will be even better.
Just be sure to make wise
decisions rather than hasty
ones. This way natural flow
can continue without being
sidetracked or stuck on
unimportant issues. Speak
from your heart. Those
around you may not always
agree with you but they will
respect you for your basic
honesty.

Gemini - May 21-June 21
You may not always, hear it,
but family and friends hold
you in' high esteem. You are
at your best during the holi-
days because of the great
love in your heart. Your
reward is the joy you receive
in the giving. Keep this feel-
ing going as long as you can.
Have' a family celebration
during the holidays. This
healing will carry everyone
through the New Year.

Cancer - June 22-July 22
Strong instincts are your
greatest asset.' You were
born with an awesome lov-
ing, giving heart. Your love of
family and friends is legion.
Use this gift to the max dur-
ing the holidays. Show love
every day to someone who
needs a kind word. The New
Year could be one of redis-
covery of certain gifts and tal-
ents you have put on hold.
You are important too, you
know.

Leo - July 23-Aug. 22
There is so much promise for
the New Year. Look at all you
have accomplished in this
one. You.are like a race car at
the starting line, rewing up
and ready to roll. The key to
victory is to'.set your goal,
stay focused and run your
race one day at a time. When
challenges come stay
focused. You are a proven
winner, you know.

Virgo - Aug. 23-SepL 22
See, the lighter touch works.
Slow down the pace, take a
step back and try to relax.
This should be a goal
throughout the year, not just
the holidays. Even though
your life is very busy, give
yourself a treat every so
ofteh. You have earned it. If
you don't do this you won't
see it from others who forget
how special you are. It's OK
to blow your own horn
sometimes.

Libra - Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Your magic continues to be
strong. Stay grounded in
your main beliefs and refuse
to compromise when you
know -the truth. Others
around you may think you
are stubborn. The truth is you
know what is right. The key
to peace to fine communica-
tion is tto find a subject of
conveTsation the other per-
son is interested in and
encourage them to talk.

Scorpio - Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Refuse to let the New Year
catch you up in too many
new activities at once. Stay
focused on the top three pri-
orities and let the lesser ones
wait. Learn to delegate. Ask
help from closest friends
when needed. This honors
them and gives you clues to
the direction you should be
going in. Now positive results
will happen.

Sagittarius - Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Keep changing and freeing
old outdated habits and atti-
tudes. You are healthier,
more prosperous and happy
than ever before. Why?
Because of releasing the past
and growing new and better
ways. Your vision is strong.
You know what your priori-
ties are. Keep this pattern
going and you will have the
best New Year ever.

Passion for life is the key to
your continuing success and

good things will follow and

mind focused on the present
and near future dreams.
There is much positive

Your power of choice and
discernment is running very
high right now. This is a great
time to make new plans for'

strong alignment with other
planets for the next few
weeks. You will see positive
results and cooperation in
your personal, professional
and social life. This is only fair

PORT ST. LUCIE - On a
national stage, the Port St.
Lucie Pirates Pee Wee
.football team gave an effort
worthy of being in the 52nd
Pop Warner Super Bowl.
Like true heavyweight
contenders, the Pirates
battled the Union Road
th- (N.C.) Jaguars to the final
*whistle in their semifinal
lur matchup recently at the
DisneyWide World of
Sports Complex in Orlando.,
ret In the end, however, the
S Jaguars - who won a
national championship two
years ago - eked out a 28-
22 victory to send the
Pirates to their first loss of
the season.
"We were right there with
them," head coach Jeff
Miret said. "They were the
No. 2 team in the country in
Division I last year.
"We showed we could
compete with anybody in
the country. I'm proud of
them. Our goal was to
represent Port St. Lucie and
our football league and now


everyone knows we play
real good football down
here"
The Jaguars struck first on
a touchdown run, but failed
to convert on the two-point
kick attempt. Port St. Lucie
answered minutes later
whenWillie Micco found
Desmond Cain on a 27-yard
scoring pass.
Port St.Lucie went up 7-6
on the extra-point run.
"It felt great taking the
lead," Cain said. "It was a
slant wheel route and it was
pretty easy getting behind
the defender."
In the second quarter, the
Pirates extended their.lead
when Miret's son, Jeremy
punched it in from 1-yard
out.
"It felr really good,"
Jeremy said. "I was really
excited."
The Pirates converted on
the extra-point try and
seemed destined to head,
into the locker room with a
14-6 lead. Union Road came
back.with just two minutes
left until halftime with a 10-
yard touchdown run and a
two-point kick to tie the
score.

Coming out of the inter-
mission the Pirates main-
tained their focus with
Miret taking it in again,
followed by Evan Percoco's
kick to regain the lead 22-
14. Despite being up by 8,
the Pirates coach main-
tained that a questionable
call right before halftime
cost Port St. Lucie the
chance at a double-digit
advantage.
"When wescored in the
third quarter, we should
have been up by two
scores," Miret said. "Just

"They called an offensive

or possibly go ahead, but
came up short.
"We moved to their 15-

play that has been very
successful the last couple of
years," Miret said. "Their
safety knocked it down.

ance in 2009.

"Hopefully, we'll be

Fishing in the wind


The wind is hitting us
from all directions and
changing daily. Any fishing
trips have to be planned
around the weather.
For the surf angler, it was
either a 1-ounce or 4-ounce
day. It was blue fish from
the beach using cut bait or
spoons. They have been a
hungry group all week.
SThe whiting, croakers and
mackerels were there if you
could get yotir bait past the
blue fish.
For the long cast it was
pompano. It was a good
bite; you just had to get out
there. Sand fleas and clam
strips were the baits of
choice. There were good
bites at the beach. The fish
do not mind the wind, but it
can be tough on the angler.
The causeways were the
place to beat the wind.
There is always flat water
full of black drum, blues,
mackerels, jacks and
pompano. The pompano
were there with the incom-
ing tide. The bridges at the
east end of the causeways
were most productive. Docs
Goofy jig were best for the
bridges.
If there is a strong wind,
just use a bigger jig. Let the
jig down, when it touches
the bottom, pick it up and
let it down again; they find
fish.
Sheep head and drum
have favored shrimp and
clam strips. Snook will take
most bait now that the
season is closed.
The boat angles have had
plenty to do on the east

excellent pompano from

Indian River Plantation
using Nylures and sand
fleas. Catch the incoming
tide. It makes no difference
what time.
Launch your boat at Little
Mud Creek, start fishing at
the mouth and go north.
There have been good red
fish bites using shrimp, gold
spoons and soft rubber
swim baits. Reds like the
cooler water and again, if
you can catch the high tide,
they will root around in the
tree-lined shore.
The pompano are south in
the Herman's Bay.area. Drift
slowly across the flats and.
you will see them skip. Now
you know where they are,
the rest is up to you.
Offshore, the action has
started on the second color
line. Dolphin have been in
the 15-pound class, and
there are plenty of sailfish if
you were not in the tourna-
ment. The wind has made
thing pretty tough out there.
Check all weather sources,
and then make the call.
In this wind, let safety
make the call, this is south
Florida and tomorrow
things will quiet down.

Henry Caimatto owns the
Snook Nook Bait and Tackle
shop in ensen Beach.
