Progress continued in Port St.
Lucie during 2008, despite a
slumping economy and thou-
sands of foreclosures.
During the year, Port St. Lucie
opened its new civic center, a
major step toward its dream of
having a town center.
A building that will house Tor-
rey Pines was completed, anoth-
er step toward transforming the
Treasure Coast into the Research
Coast.
Work also progressed on
Crosstown Parkway, a major east-

announced that a bridge allow-

New water quality
sensors now being
developed could be
boon for lagoon
By Jay Meisel
,meisel@h6met6wnnewsol.com
ST. LUCIE COUNTY A Fort
Pierce-based ocean research
nonprofit organization is devel-
oping tools to make water quality
monitoring more affordable and
effective.
Nearly four years after two for-
mer employees of Harbor Branch
Oceanographic Institute formed
Ocean Research & Conservation
Association, testing of the sen-
sors is under way; 'said Keith
Paglen, the chief executive officer
and co-founder. Mr. Paglen was
formerly the head of institution-
al advancement at Harbor
Branch.
Six of the sensors, called Kil-
roys, have been deployed in the
Indian River Lagoon, Mr. Paglen
said.

Vice Mayor Jack Kelley and Coun-
cilwoman Michelle Berger.
Toward the end of the year, city
officials talked about a massive
drainage project in response to
flooding in the southeast part of
the city from Tropical Fay.
Here are some of the year's top
stories:

City receives money
to help with foreclosures
As much, as possible, Port St.
Lucie should use $13.5'million in
federal funds to benefit local res-
idents and businesses, city lead-
ers were told during a meeting; ,
The city expects to receive $13.5

borhood stabilization program

The Port St. Lucie
City Council last 908 SWBi
week held a public fon-Fri Ioam
hearing on its State *Lic
plan for the pro- C.... c
gram and
approved it for submission
to the U.S. Department of Hous-
ing and Urban Development.
The city will use the bulk of the
money to buy foreclosed homes
and then sell the dwellings to
families meeting federal income
guidelines. But it will not help
homeowners facing foreclosure.

Democrats
dominate election
St. Lucie County residents
voted Democratic in the large


majority .
of races on the general elec-
tion ballot.
"I'm obviously ecstatic," said
Celeste Bush, head of the St.
Lucie County Democratic Party.
"We had a very good candidate,"
she said, meaning Barack
Obama.
On the other hand, Reece Par-
rish, head of the St. Lucie County
Republican Party, said the
Republicans are regrouping.

In the new year, try a good shaking of the roots


E very so often,,"A Good
Shaking of the Roots" is
needed to clear out the
old and make room for the
new and better things in life
that make us happy, healthy,
successful or secure. A snake
sheds its skin now and then
to renew itself.
A few years ago when Yel-
lowstone Park burned,
everyone looked at it as a
disaster. Since then, several
hundred old life forms have
reappeared that the rangers
thought were extinct, along a
many new ones. The roots
were still alive. They just
couldn't break through all
the top growth that had
come later.
I was talking to my dear
friend, Betty Borden, on
Christmas Day and asked for
her predictions for 2009.
She said, "The economy


will recover, but it will take a
while. We need to stop
thinking about everything
that went wrong and begin
to take positive action that
will help our country and
the world."
We can't change what has
happened in the past. But
we can create new causes
and missions like we sow
new seeds in the garden to
grow new life. With your
permission, here are the new
causes I will plant for all of
the readers of Hometown
News, our country and the
world. Then it is my job and
your job to water the seeds
through our positive
thinking (Thank you, Betty)
and rekindle the fire of
desire living in our hearts
and souls for a great new
year 2009. Here are a few
predictions:


James Tucker, Hometown
News' resident psychic,
shares his vision for 2009

We have survived the
greater challenges. We don't
learn from our victories. We
learn from our defeats,
hopefully, and move on to


renewed hope. With thehelp
of the government bailouts,
the economy will pick up.
There will be new regula-
tions and checkpoints set up
that will protect our money
from less-than-honest
individuals who will be held
accountable for honesty and
taken to task for anything
less.
I see a migration coming
our way of people living in
South Florida around the
Miami area. This will create
new markets, jobs and
spending, especially from
the Hispanic community.
They will also bring their
culture and stimulate new
interest in the spreading of
international arts and
sciences. Our area and
country is becoming fully
integrated and open to new
ideas and culture, from the


presidency on down.
Mother Nature is amazing.
One of her recent lessons
given is to trim down, eat
less, waste less and become
healthier. I see families
growing more of their own
food. Do you want to start a
foolproof business? Start
building and selling back-
yard greenhouses.
Many people are worried
about spiraling inflation. I
see that the new mindset of
thrift and less waste will
continue to keep inflation in
check. I believe that the
essential goodness in every
living soul will prevail. An
example of this is how we
are driving less and the price
of gasoline has been cut in
half or more. Being thrifty
pays.

The idea for the Kilroy
came from the need for
"inexpensive devices that
were available in large hum-

He said that to do effective
monitoring of coastal waters
it is necessary to have a large
number of monitors.
But with the existing tech-

REMINERALIZATION
Q: I'd like to lose weight? Could dieting affect my oral health?
A: The quick answer is yes. Before starting any diet-or exercise regiment, for that matter-
you should talk with your physician about what is best for you. As to the oral health
aspect, you should talk to your dentist. For one thing, eating stimulates the body's
production of saliva. Saliva helps us form the balls of food we swallow and digest. but it
also helps with the elimination of plaque, the dear, sticky film that clings to teeth, and
the decay-causing bacteria that feed on it. Saliva also washes away sulfur compounds that
cause bad breath.
Crash diets can be especially harmful. Not only do, they affect saliva flow, but a crash diet may not give
you the minerals and vitamins you need to maintain healthy teeth and gums. When dieting, drink plenty
of water. It will keep your body hydrated, help with appetite control and aid in saliva production.
Chewing sugarless gum will stimulate saliva production. Remember, if you are dieting yo need to pay
even closer attention to your oral health needs. So brush twice a day, floss regularly and have a good talk g0
with your dentist. O

able, he said.
And efforts are under way
to further reduce the costs of
the sensor.
He said he believes 150 to
250 Kilroys will be needed to
monitor the Indian River
Lagoon.
Ultimately, the organiza-
tion wants to expand beyond
the Indian River Lagoon and
eventually go worldwide.
Another difficulty in moni-
toring the coastal water qual-
ity is that typically water sam-
ples are sent to labs, a process
that can take months, he
said.
The Kilroy monitors water
temperature, turbidity, flow
and other factors.
When the Kilroy senses
something unusual, it can

Information also is sent to
cell phones and computers
when the Kilroy senses a pos-

ty, he said.
That canpotentially result

During the past decades,
air quality has been
improved by air monitoring
systems, he said.
"We need the same kind of
monitoring system in the
water," he added.
The need for such a moni-
toring system has become
quite apparent, he said.
Published reports have
stated that dozens of dol-
phins have died in the Indian
River lagoon in Brevard
County.
The problem may be due
to pollution, he said.

titles of fish that have accu-
mulated pollution in their
bodies, he said.
As a result, he said, "large
animals accumulate large
quantities of pollutions."
The aim is for increased
monitoring is to make it easi-
er to deal with the pollution
problems, he said.
The association is also
finding ways to make testing
of sediment in the waters
more affordable.
Currently, he said, sedi-
ment samples are sent to a
lab for costly analysis, and in
some cases the results show
no problems.
The association is working
on. a sort of canary, in the
mine solution.
Miners would send a
canary into a mind to test for
gasses, he said.
If the canary survived then
mining was started.
The association is substi-
tuting bacteria with the
canary and exposing the
microscopic organisms to
the sediment, he said.
"If the 'canary' lives, we
don't have to worry about
that sediment," he said.
And once the process is
perfected, that will save
money in laboratory testing,
Mr. Paglen said.
Dr. Widder and Mr. Paglen
left Harbor Branch and
formed the association on
their own in 2005.
Since then, he said, it's
grown to employ 15 scientists
and engineers.
The association is head-
quartered at the former Coast
Guard facility, which is now
owned by Indian River State
College.
-It also has a separate build-
ing further south for
research.
It has received funding
from the state and various
governmental entities and
private fouindationis.



Roots
From page A1
Many local families have'
suffered with their homes. It
has been tough. I believe
that the real estate market
will begin to recover and
turn around in the spring
and summer. Patience is the
greatest virtue.
Street crime has always
beeniwith us. Take precau-
tionary measures when you
go out, even if for a loaf of
bread. Park in an open area
and lock your car. Take only
the money you need with
you. The law enforcement
officers are doing all they
can. Help our anyway you
can to bridge the gap as a
citizen to keep our home-
towns safe.
And last but not least,
Hometown News. Al, the
wonderful Hometown News.
I had a dream recently and
saw the paper adding three
new editions in 2009. They
were to the west and north.
In the near future, the paper
will grow regionally and
nationally. Just think, we
were all here at the begin-
ning and continue to be
blessed by its outreach.
Thanks Vernon Smith, Steve
Erlanger, Tammy Raits, Phil
Galdys and all the other loyal
staff who create this magic
each week for all of us to
feast upon and savor.
You might think, "James,
you didn't make any nega-
tive predictions."'I have a
saying, "In a garden there are
flowers and weeds. Don't
feed the weeds. Feed the
flowers."
My greatest wish for you is
that your flowers and beauty
"Shine in 2009." We have
made it this far./There is still
a ways to go. Now is not the
time to give up. It's time to go
inside, feed the inner spirit,
raise it up, bring it our and
set it free.
You can do it. Your
happiness in the new year
depends on it. May life's
richest blessing fill and
overflow your life ea~h and
every day.

ment, including 12 at the
helm.
Chief Skinner's retire-
ment will not be an idle
one. He has accepted the
position of Major League
Baseball's managing
director of security and
facility operations for all
minor leagues, a job the
life-long baseball fan had
coveted for a lohg time.
, Chief Shinnamon said he
doesn't expect a problem
transitioning to run a
department in a city of
about 150,000.
Mr. Shinnamon said he
has previous experience
working in Baltimore
County, Md., with a popu-
lation of more than
700,000.

New civic center
opens

Port St. Lucie's new civic
center was in demand
even before it opened Dec.
1.
People had already
booked space for wed-
dings and conventions.
The $25 million 100,000-
square-foot building
appears to offer some-
thing for just about any-
one and anything.

Precious Metals
A -mere glance at a pre-
cious metals web-site will
confirm that 2008 has been
indeed a year of extreme
ups and downs. Gold hit its
peak of $1,020 an ounce
on March 17, just to drop
down to about $910 an
ounce on March 20, a
decline of $100 in just 3
days. That same month
platinum prices rose to
nearly $2,300 an ounce on
March 4, but by March 10,
fell $350 to about $1,950 an
ounce. What makes this
situation somewhat unique
is not the price of precious
metals, it's the volatility.
Major changes in the span
of a couple of weeks and in
some cases, a couple of
days, have left the con-
sumer and the refiner
somewhat shell-shocked.
A customer turning in metal
for refining on Monday
could see as much as a
$60 swing- in that metal's
price by the end of the
week, making planning for
a business difficult. The
price, pendulum also swings
the other way-favoring
customers. At one point a
company paid $2,000 an
ounce for platinum, only to
have the price drop $1,000
before the refiner could
move the metal. In the end,
the violent price swings are
not good for anyone manu-
facturers, retailers, refiners
or customers. What goes
up must come down.

Keep empty lots clean

Houses are being foreclosed on at record breaking
speed. With the foreclosures come vacant homes. With
the vacant homes come lawns that are not maintained.
Not a lot you, as a neighbor, can do, unless you end up
with snakes and rats, as I,did.
There is something you can change though, the litter
thrown in our driveways. If you just pick it up and throw
it away, call these, companies and request they no longer
throw their litter. It worked for me. You would think that
they would have the common sense not to throw papers
in driveways with foreclosure or for sale signs or that are
evidently vacant, but, alas, it is not so.
With the foreclosures, unkempt yards and litter in the
driveways, our property values are going down, down,
down. It's a little thing, just a phone call, or two or three
away, but, you can help clean up your neighborhood.
And your neighborhood may be mine.
Thanks to Hometown News for not being an offender.

Native American discrimination?

We are entering 2009.and the group most discriminat-
ed against is native Americans. Everybody is worried
about where they are from and what continent they
were born on, but the truth is, the most discriminated
group is the group whowas here before everyone.
.The Indian people need to get their land back and
everyone else needs to stop thinking it's theirs. Go back
to where you came from. You brought poverty and
crime. Give the land back to who deserves it.

More ways to conserve

I'd like to give a couple more ideas on how to conserve
water.
I keep water in the refrigerator so I don't have to wait
for the tap water to get cold, and I turn the faucet under
thi k':k-in, the bathroom to low, so I don't waste wat&r
when brush my teeth.

Stay warm in chilly weather

This is a grandmother giving advice to some younger
people.
Please cover up the little children. It gets chilly in the
stores and we have a couple more months of cooler
weather. Arid the older folks should keep warm, too. We
don't want you getting sick and passing your germs
along.

Low prices are intoxicating

I'im getting gas highs. I get an endorphin rush when I
pull up to the pumps. My heart flutters with excitement.
I even get excited when I run out of gas so I can fill up.
Instead of $45.20, I now pay $20.45 not an SUV, obvi-
ously. And it's getting better. I want to drive to Fort
Lauderdale for lunch all the time. I don't know if I can
contain myself. Of course Florida Power :.'& Light and
other utilities and food chains haven't let go of the gravy
train. But when I wake from this dream, and I'm sure it
isn't faroff, I'll need Prozac.

Price gouging?

I would like to know how the grocery stores get away
with not reducing prices since gasoline prices have gone
down drastically. They may tell you their supplies were
delivered when gas prices were up but what about fresh
produce that is delivered several times a week? As far as I
can see, the prices remain the same for those items.
Another example of price gouging?

Move the clues

I love your puzzle, but I'd like it even more if you'd
position the clues above the grid. With the clues below,
your hand is always covering them as you fill in the
answers.

Navigating around on your computer


One of the "buzz-
words" you're
bound to hear while
learning to use your
computer is "navigate."
Unfortunately, no one ever
seems to take the time to
explain exactly what that
means.,
In a nutshell, "navigat-
ing" around your comput-
er simply means finding a
file or folder somewhere
on your hard drive, CD
drive or other removable
drive. (Online, "navigat-
ing" to a particular Web
site meansto open that
Web address in your Web
browser).
OK, that sounds easy
enough, but what's itreally
-dean. Ff6hdLe one
"navigate" to a particular
file or folder on your hard
drive (or CD/floppy drive)?
To answer that, let's talk
a bit about your drives
(hard drive, floppy or CD)
and how information is
organized on them and
then compare that to a
regular, old-fashioned file
cabinet.
Each of your drives is
very similar to a file
cabinet drawer in the way
it stores data. Like a file
cabinet drawer, there are
folders (represented on the
computer, remarkably
enough, by little manila
file folder icons) and there
are files that are stored in
the folders.

Navigate to where you
want to save the file by

where you want to save it.
Let's say for this example
you have a folder on your
C: drive for downloads.
Let's also say that in that
downloads folder is
another folder called "virus
tools." To navigate to that
folder when downloading
the latest virus removal
tool, in the "save in" field,
double click the C: drive,
then the downloads folder
and then the virus tools
folder. Once "virus tools"
appears in the "save in"
field, make a note of the
name of the file you are

save button.
The file will then down-
load to that folder and
when it's done, you can
navigate back to it to run it
by double clicking you're

"my computer" icon, your
C: drive, your downloads
folder and then your virus
tools folder. And now you
know whenever you read
"just navigate to whatever
on your computer." You will
have at least a fundamental
understanding of just what
that means.

Looking forward to a new, better year


promised I'd let you
know how Isurvived my
first holidays without
Roy..
As I write this, Thanksgiv-
ing has passed and Christ-'
mas and NewYear's are still
ahead. Jan. 4 is our
anniversary. I know there
are rough days coming, but
there is also hope.
The weekend before
Thanksgiving, while people
still had not turned inward
toward family, as we do, I
did several fun things.
I went to a Lovin' Spoon-
ful concert with my friend,
Peggy, and we had a great
time listening to great
songs.
On Sunday I took a boat
ride up the Loxahatchee
River, something I'd never
done. It was terrific and I
only wish I'd known about
it to take Roy.
There's the rub. It's a
great idea to have things
that are fun to look
forward to, but it's unreal-
istic to think that they will
make you forget your
loved one or make the
hurt go away.
Again, I have to remind
myself that there is no "get-


ALIVE
& WELL
SHELLEY KOPPEL


out-of grief-free card," no
early parole. Grief is a,
process. You go through it
and it takes time. Still, there
are things I have tried to do
Sto make it a little easier.
I am still going for grief
counseling at Treasure
Coast Hospice and I can't
speak highly enough about
it.
Yes, the almost unbear-
able pain of the early grief
has subsided, however, I
still feel I am freelancing
my way through my life,
not sure what I'm supposed
to do or where I'm sup-
posed to be. It all feels
formless and without
shape.
Soon after Roy died, I
started going to a personal
trainer. I need to get my
health back on track and I
needed a routine. I went
three times a week for two
months and it was terrific
and did me a lot of good. It


was also expensive.
Near the end of the two
months, I was talking
about it with a friend and
we decided to continue
what I'd been doing in our
community gym, three
times a week. We've been
doing it for 50 minutes,
three times a week and we
both enjoy the sense of
accomplishment and
opportunity to talk. We've
also signed up for a once-
a-week yoga class, begin-
ning in January.
Work has been a God-
send and keeps me
focused as deadlines
come up every week. My
work as the entertain-
ment reporter exposes me
to a lot of interesting
people and I have plans to
see some of the events so
that I have something to
look forward to.
I have also begun
talking to people who are
in the same boat. I have
met some new ones and
have friends who have
Jost husbands in the last
year. Talking to people
who understand what
you're going through
helps you feel less alone


and makes you realize
that what you're feeling is
perfectly normal.
During the Thanksgiv-
ing weekend, I talked on
the phone more than
usual, because I needed
to hear people's voices.
I am learning to live
alone, although I don't
really like it. I have lots of
books and jigsaw puzzles,
which I find distract me
when I start to get upset
about something. I have
learned to accept the
sadness and appreciate
those days when the fog
lifts a bit. I do laugh and I
am surprised, but I have
discovered that life goes
on and if you have the
chance to laugh, take it.
* I know the rest of
December will be diffi-
cult. I am looking forward
to a new year, a better
year. As always, I'll keep
you posted.

association executive. Obvi-
ously the position requires a
lot of work, planning, and
travel, but the opportunities
are dynamically rewarding.
One very important aspect
of my role is to listen to the
needs of other association


executives, which leads to
more opportunities for
everyone in the form of
ongoing training, educa-
tional workshops, and
proactive strategies neces-
sary to address the specific
problems all AE's inevitably
encounter. Consequently, I
will also represent my fellow
Association of Executives by
participating in FAR's Lead-
ership Team meetings. I'm
looking forward to a very
productive year and oppor-
tunities to advance the roles
of association executives in
our state."

ciations- are located in every

From page A4
"People can't believe this
is in Port St. Lucie,". said
Tonya Taylor, facility
administrator.
The civic center is locat-
ed off Walton Road, near
the St. Lucie County
administration building.
It includes an art gallery,
a large recreation area,
meeting-rooms, ballrooms
and a space for children's
activities.
School district moves
forward, but faces
challenges
St. Lucie County School
District's year started out
positive with. a surprise
announcemeht of' aca-
demic progress.
But the year ended on a
more sober note when
teachers and other
employees agreed to
,forego raises to avoid lay-
offs.
The district,, facing more
than $10 million in budget
shortfalls, reassigned
some administrative
employees to schools and
made cuts in other areas,
including athletics and


bus transportation.
The more positive news
was that the district was
selected as one of 100 top
districts in the nation for
dramatic improvement in
public education.
The Broad (pronounced
Bro-ad) Foundation,
established in 2002 by the
Broad family, selected 100
schools for eligibility for
its 2008 Broad Prize for
Urban Education. School
districts do not apply for
this award, but are rather
chosen by the foundation
itself from among all
urban school, districts
based, on size, urban envi-
ronment and minority and
low-income populations.
FAU expands in
Port St. Lucie
Dedicating a new build-
ing last week was about
more than just bricks and
mortar, said Frank Brogan,
president of Florida
Atlantic University.
It's another, step toward
ending the brain drain
forcing Treasure Coast stu-
dents to move elsewhere
for work.

research to the Treasure
Coast, along with educa-
tion provided by FAU and

able to stay here, work
here and do the job we've
educated and trained
them to do," Mr. Brogan
said.
The president spoke to
more than 100 people on
Nov. 13 who attended the
ribbon cutting for the $10
million, 31,432-square-
foot, two-story building.
It doubles the classroom
space on campus and has
offices for faculty and
staff.
Teacher reassigned
after classroom
incident
A Port St. Lucie teacher's
decision gained national
publicity.
Wendy Portillo allowed
her Morningside Elemen-
tary kindergarten.students
to vote on whether Alex
Barton, 5, should remain
in the class. But first, she
allowed each student to
state their opinions on
why they didn't like Alex.
As a result, Ms. Portillo
was reassigned "outside of
the classroom" pending an
investigation to determine
if any school district poli-
cies, procedures or ethics
were 'violated. In an inci-
dent that attracted nation-
al media attention, 14 stu-
dents voted to remove Alex
from the classroom, while
two of his classmates
voted to allow him to stay.
Alex has reportedly had
prior disciplinary issues
requiring visits to the prin-
cipal's office.

County makes cuts
St. Lucie County offi-
cials struggled to deal
with declining revenues.
In what is being termed
Phase I of St. Lucie Coun-
ty's department consoli-
dation reorganization
program, the County
Commission voted unan-


imously July 1 to approve
the reduction of almost
248 positions.
"As a result of the board
action, our new staff level
is down to 721 positions;
that's the same number
as 2000-01," said Doug
Anderson, county admin-
istrator.
The majority of the
positions were frozen or
eliminated. An additional
68 employees opted for
early retirement and 18.5
positions were eliminat-,
ed due to voluntary lay-
offs (this number is com-;
prised of 19 employees,
one of which was part-
time).
.Total savings to the
county's budget as a
result of the 12 layoffs is
more than $730,000
annually. The voluntary
layoffs will save the coun-
ty $1.2 million per year.

Playwright's comedy comes to town


'Leading Ladies'
features
local grads
By Shelley Koppel
Entertainment writer
FORT PIERCE Play-
wright Ken Ludwig's
comedies about the theater
have been all over the
Treasure Coast this year.
Joining "Lend me a
Tenor" and "Moon over
Buffalo" is the Pineapple
Playhouse's production of
"Leading Ladies," on stage
from Jan. 8-25.
Director Colby
Dempsey credits Pineapple
stalwart Jan Buzzeo with
bringing the play to the
Pineapple play committee's
attention.
"They read the script and
loved it," he said. "It is very
much Ken Ludwig. It
exemplifies his love of
Shakespeare. He directed it
when it opened in Wash-
ington, D.C., and it's
personal for him."
The play tells the story of
Leo and Jack, Shakespeare-
an actors who find them-
selves performing scenes
from Shakespeare in
Moose lodges in Amish
country.
When they discover a
rich old lady in York, Pa., is
about to leave her fortune
to her nephews from


England, they appear at her
side, only.to discover that
the nephews are nieces.
"Shakespeare is a device
to get to the comedy," Mr.
Dempsey said. "The first
act sets up the story and is
not a farce, but in the
second act, there are
mistaken identities and it's
very, very funny.
"Directing traffic and
getting all the people
moving correctly on stage
in such as small area is the
biggest challenge," he said.
Tackling the roles of Leo
and Jack are Bryan Childe
and James Blount. Mr.
Childe, a graduate of Port
St. Lucie High School,
recently completed a tour,
of "The Rocky Horror
Picture Show." Both Mr.
Blount and Mr. Dempsey
have also appeared in
versions of that show.
"We've got a lot of
'Rocky' in our little cast,"
the director said.
SherylAikens, a new-
comer to the Pineapple,
plays the female lead, Meg,
the niece of the rich old
lady, played by Gail Searles.
Also in the cast are Tony
Ferrino, Liz Petrel, Emmett
Fitzsimmons and Steve
Carden.
Mr. Colby started as a
musician at Port St. Lucie
High School, where he
played in the pit orchestra
and decided he wanted to

The cast of the Ken Ludwig comedy 'Leading Ladies,'
which will open at the Pineapple Playhouse on Jan. 8
and run through Jan. 25


be on stage.
While at Indian River
State College, he acted and
heard about the Pineapple
from director Chris
Marcozollo, an old family
friend.,
Mr. Dempsey acted in
several productions and,
then turned to his interest
in directing.
"I saw different styles
and I thought that maybe I
could put my own stamp
on it, my personal vision,"
he said.
"There are a lot of
challenges, but I have a


really awesome production
team. Everyone is really
helpful when I have a
question or problem and
while there's always a lot of
stress, they've helped me
put out the fires when they
arise."

The Pineapple Playhouse,
700 W Weatherbee Road,
Fort Pierce, presents
"Leading Ladies," through
Jan. 25. Performances are
Thursday-Saturday at 8
p.m. and 2 p.m. on Sunday.
Tickets are $15. Call the box
office at (772) 465-0366.


Treasure Coast's top 10 sports stories of 2008


By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com
Another year has come and gone
and so it's time to reflect on the most
important stories in the news arena
-the ones that filled the sports
pages last year.

Bulldogs and Indians and
Panthers (football), oh, my!

Nowhere did the glow of the lights
on Friday night shine brighter than
it did on South Fork, Vero Beach and
Fort Pierce Westwood. All three
teams had successful seasons,
solidifying their places among the
state's best;
Vero Beach delivered its second
consecutive district title with a 27-24
victory over Seminole Ridge. The
Indians fell behind early on, but
stormed back to tie the game at 10
on Shawn O' Dare's 53-yard touch-
down strike to Clayton Hall late in
the first quarter.
The duo hooked up again in the
second quarter to put the Indians
ahead for good with Patrick Baker's
22-yard field goal proving to be the
difference.
Vero Beach won its Region 2-6A


quarterfinal matchup with ParkVista
before falling to Royal Palm Beach.
the next week to finish the season at
9-3.
Fort PierceWestwood followed
down a similar path. The Panthers
won their second district crown in a
row with a 14-7 win over Sebastian
River and was even more impressive
in their playoff opener.
Taking on Boca Raton, Westwood
raced out to a 7-0 lead in the open-
ing moments of the game when
Khalil Mack snatched an errant
handoff out of the air and stormed
33 yards for the touchdown.
From there it was the Jerrell
Washington show, as the tailback
found the end zone four times,
including an 11-yard score to give '
Westwood the 35-28 victoryin"
overtime.
The Panthers couldn't keep the
momentum going and fell behind
W.T. Dwyer 31-0 in the regional
semifinal before a late Leon Shorter
touchdown prevented the shutout.
Despite the loss, Westwood's 10-2
season gave a glimpse of what lies
ahead for the Fort Pierce faithful.
Despite not repeating as district
champs, South Fork remained in the
playoff hunt longer than the other
area elite.
After defeating Spanish River to


reach the postseason, South Fork
traveled.to Mblbourne to face a Palm
Bay team that had lost just once all
season. .
Unfazed, the Bulldogs jumped out
in front 21-7 after Ronnie Nelson
connected with Jason Thompson on
an 11-yard touchdown. Palm Bay
rallied to pull within 21-20, but
inexplicably went for two to try and
win the game.
The Pirates pass attempt was
knocked down in the end zone,
giving South Fork its second playoff
victory in the program's 27-year
history.
No. 3 came the following week, as
South Fork raced to an early lead
over Atlantic and held on for a 35-28
victory Willie Walker scored three
touchdowns, including one with just
over four minutes left in the game to
seal the win.
Unfortunately, the Bulldogs magic
carpet ride ended in the Region 4-5A
title game against state powerhouse
St. Thomas Aquinas, but finishing
the season at 9-4 was quite the trick.

Pirates sail to super season

STAR SCOPES
James Tucker
Week of 01-02-2009


Aries-March 21-April 19
The main reason for your
success is all the hard work
and devotion to duties.
Whether it is family, work or
friends, you always sense
what needs to be done and
then do it. You are commit-
ted, involved and passionate.
You are highly, deserving of
life's greatest riches. Keep it
up and 2009 will be your
best year ever.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Taking care of family and
others with greater needs
than your own just recon-
firms your large heart and
spirit. What you give out
always comes back multi-
plied, although you don't do
it for personal gain. It just
shows what a fine person
you have grown into. Happy
New Year. Watch your
finances. Don't go overboard
on "can't live withouts"
Quality time is far greater
than a quantity of things. The
rewards of the personal
touch are great for all.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
Your. creativity is especially
strong now. You will meet
life's challenges in the New
Year with your usual style
and luck. Why? Because you
have a guardian angel
watching over you. Most of
the things you worry about
' are not going tothappen any-
way. The key is to take care
of details as they arrive so
you don't have to put out
any forest fires later.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
You have approached the
holidays with gratitude and
thankfulness for all you
accomplished the past year.
You have a firm direction for
the new one coming. Keep a
strong focus on your top
goals and you will do much
more. The way you back up
your plans with action will
continue to insure success.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
The ideas continue to flow
and the light bulbs keep on
turning on. One good idea is
always the birth mother to
several others hanging
around. Get ready for more.
The New Year will be filled
and exploding with many
new opportunities. The key is
to focus on the ones that
make you the happiest first.
Success is sure to follow.

Scopes
From page B1
Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept. 22
When you set a plan in
motion and your heart is in it,
move it forward. Refuse to let
worry, doubt or indecision set
in or get you sidetracked. If
you aren't sure, ask for advice
or just wait. Then with
renewed clarity, move for-
ward again. Pain, hardship or
struggle is your gut instinct
telling you to be patient.
Heed this warning.

Libra-Sept. 23-Oct. 22
You have grown so much
spiritually the past year. Why?
Because you are more cen-
tered. You worry less. Your


self-confidence has
increased. You have much
new respect from family and
friends. The main reason for
this is all the love you show
to others. When you are
happy others are happy. You
are so much fun to be
around.

Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 21
You have a lot of positive
energy around you now. The
holidays are a strong time of
the year for you. The New
Year will offer even more.
Your instincts are sharp. Your
mind is working clearly. Your
spirit is strong. This is more
than enough energy to pro-
pel you forward toward your
dreams. You have a high
blessing on your life.


Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Creative projects want to
grow and become fruitful.
Use your imagination. Be
inventive. Bring your ideas,
visions and inspirations into
reality now. Make them real.
The only limits are what you
place on yourself. Dare to be
different. Now others want to
hang around just to see what
you are dreaming up next:
You were born for greatness.

Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
With the sun, Mars and Pluto
in Capricorn, you are super-
charged and ready to roll in
the New Year. Be totally hon-

Start the New Year right with homemade 'penicillin'


H ope your holidays
were special; now
you're breathing a
sigh of relief.
Let's start.the New Year
right and answer a new




nESTOR,


reader's request.
Homemade chicken soup
is in a class all its own. If you
don't want additives, such
as too much salt, how about
no MSG? It's in there under
various names such as
hydrolyzed protein or other
natural flavors.
What? You've never made
chicken soup? Believe:me,
it's a piece Qf cake. The
incredible aroma of chicken
soup permeates.a home
with love. You've noticed
that scent when you pull
into a shopping center that
has a restaurant with a
smart chef.
When I was a kid,.my
maternal grandmother


ROMANCING !
THE STOVE
with the
Grammy Guru
ARLENE BORG

made the best chicken soup.
In those days, people raised
their own chickens and
used every part. Along with
chicken parts there were
chicken feet.
Don't say yuck, read on!
Chicken feet are loaded
with calcium and nutrients,
and they make a very rich
soup. When grandma ate
the feet (she was seated at
the head of the table so I
really couldn't see into her
bowl, after all I was only 6),
she did it with such relish
that I asked if I could have
some the next time. When I
finally got them in my soup


bowl, I realized that feet
meant feet!
Couldn't do it, just
couldn't do it, but did I
learn? Not me! I won't even
tell you what transpired
with the head of the chick-
en.
When I saw a package of
frozen chicken feet in Publix
I had to buy them.
While adding the feet,
which are very clean and
scrubbed to my soup, I felt
like a little kid doing things
grandma's way. Of course
I removed them from the
pot before serving.
.Not expecting a positive
response to the feet, I was
amazed when I got letters
and e-mails, especially from
my Jewish readers, thanking
me.for bring them back to
their childhood. It's a known
fact that when someone was
sick, all they needed was a


bowl of a Jewish mamma's
chicken soup (Jewish
[enicillin). It has to be a
European thing but now I
know the secret ingredient
was the feet!
My family made Italian
penicillin and I'll bet that
every family had their home
country's magic chicken
soup. Don't you think that's
pretty cool?
Chicken soup should be a
free meal. Whenever I have
any leftover chicken cooked
or raw I freeze it. I don't
recommend ABC (already
been chewed) pieces but
anything else is fine. If you
insist on a whole chicken,
use a fryer, not a spup
chicken, the meat is too
tough. I always use a
pressure cooker for chicken
soup. In 30 minutes the
soup is done. I recommend
removing skin and fat, but a


reader stated, "That's not
grandma's way."
If you like, leave it all and
remove fat after soup has
chilled.
.Enjoy. See you next week.

CHICKEN SOUP
1 whole chicken, cut up
(save the wings for another
use), or chicken parts raw or
cooked
1-2 pounds chicken feet
(optional)*
1 large onion, about 3-
inches in diameter, peeled
and sliced
1 tbsp. canola oil
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
2 large ribs of celery with
leaves, cut up
2 tbsp. chopped fresh
parsley or 1 tbsp. dried

From page BI
Pirates Pop Warrier squad
played like giants for most
of the season.
The team steamrolled
through their first 15
contests, winning games
with relative ease. Case in
point was the Pirates' 34-6
victory over the Flagler
Bulldogs to capture the
Southeast Region title. Port
St. Lucie dominated on both
sides of the ball with Juan
Larralde rushing for two
touchdowns with Jeremy
Miret adding on of his own.
Defensively, Josh Pantale-
on and Desmond Cain both
returned interceptions for
touchdowns in helping the
Pirates secure their spot in
ttie 52nd Pop Warner Super
Bowl.
In Orlando, Port St. Lucie
faced one of the top pro-
grams in the country in the
Union Road (N.C.) Jaguars.
The Pirates didn't blink and
held the advantage on three
separate occasions before
succumbing to the Jaguars
28-22.
Port St. Lucie didn't leave
the DisneyWide World of
Sports Complex empty
handed, however, by virtue
of its 33-0 win over the Port
Arthur Cowboys in the
third-place game to finish
the season at 16-1.

Martin County and


St. Lucie West
Centennial roll to
bowling crowns
While both the Martin
County boys and St. Lucie
Centennial girls bowling
teams each won a state
bowling championship, the
squads traveled down
slightly different lanes to
reach their destinations.
After having already
established themselves as
one of the best teams in the
state, the Eagles made it
official with a dominating
run through the tourna-
ment. Like it had done all
season, Centennial made it
look easy, beating Gulliver
Prep and Cypress Creek in
opening-round action.
After dispatching of
Seabreeze in the semifinals,
St. Lucie West faced Oviedo
for the gold. Centennial
polished off the state power
in five games to finally add a

team state championship to
its trophy case.
The team had come up
short in their three previous
trips to the finals with only
Amanda Stinehart's individ-
ual crown in2006 to show
for their efforts.
Unlike Centennial, Martin
County was making its first
trip to the state tourney. It
looked to be a quick one
after the Tigers suffered a
loss on the first day of
competition to Oviedo.
Martin County quickly
rebounded and didn't lose
again with each victory
more impressive than the
one before. However, the
team had to defeat Oviedo
twice in order to avoid going
home empty handed.
The Tigers did just that,
securing the title with
impressive performances by
T.J. Baral, Tyler Westling,
Matt Gauroniak and Casey
Dockerill.

South Fork and John


Carroll reach state
baseball finals
Making the trek to the
FHSAA finals in Sarasota,
both South Fork and John
Carroll illustrated the
strength of Treasure Coast
baseball to their con-
stituents across the state.
Capping their best season
in school history, South Fork
earned a spot in the 5A title
game with a scintillating 3-0
victory over Niceville in the
semifinals, as TysonYoung
held the opposition to one
hit.
. Squaring off against
Dunedin, South Fork fell
behind 2-0 before rallying
for single runs in the third
and fifth. The team
appeared.poised to win the
game, loading the bases
with no outs in the seventh
inning.
However, the Bulldogs
couldn't capitalize, and the
Falcons pulled out a 3-2 win
in 10 innings. South Fork

finished 27-6, capturing
both the district and
regional titles along the way.
John Carroll'had an
excellent season as well. The
Rams were the beneficiaries
of a superb outing by ace T.J.
Mullins, who allowed just


four hits and one earned
run in a 5-2 victory over
Keystone Heights in the
state semifinals.
The team's luck ran out
after that, as shoddy play in
the field and a top-ranked

John Carroll committed five
errors against a Plantation-

The 8-2 loss didn't dimin-


ish the team's 24-6 record,
which appears poised for
another run in 2009.

Sebastian River
wrestler pins down

in 2007, Vince Maul made
it to the final match of the

160-pound weight class,
only to lose to Tom Timothy
of Brandon in a grueling
bout.
A year later, Maul went on
a quest to erase those
memories. He went through
the regular season unde-
feated before taking first in
the 171-pound class at the
District 13-2A tournament.
Next up was the Region 4-2A
competition where Maul
upped his record to 36-0,
earning the tap against
Musa De'Reese of Titusville.
At the Florida High School
Athletic Association finals,
Maul made short work of his
first-round opponent before
winning by default in the
quarterfinals. The semifi-
nals feanbred Maul taking
on Jacob Harmer of
Gainesville, who himself
sported an impressive 55-0
record.


The match went into
overtime before Maul pulled
out the victory. On Feb. 16
- almost a year to the day
that the Sebastian River
wrestler lost in the state
finale Maul pinned Kyle
Provencal of Charlotte in
just 44 seconds to become a
state champion.

, Sports figures earn
the wrong kinds of
headlines

While sports usually offers a
respite from the bad news,
several instances proved
that no area is immune.
Despite all the success the
Sebastian River baseball
team has had over the past
few seasons including the
school's second district title
in 2008 several reported
instances off the field have


overshadowed all the Sharks
have achieved on it.
Most notable was the
reported hazing incident
that took place at a Planta-
tion hotel in March while
the team was participating
.in a tournament. Five team
members were suspended
from school while head
coach George Young and
assistant Chris Rahal were
placed on a leave of
absence.
Following an investiga-
tion, three of the students
were sent to the Alternative
Center for Education in lieu
of a formal expulsion while
Rahal was issued a repri- ,
mand for not reporting the
incident immediately to
administration.
Young took the hardest hit,
as the only head coach in
Sharks' history was relieved
of his position.

Several months later, two
Sebastian River Middle
School eighth-grade soccer
players were charged with
two felony counts each,
including attempted sexual
battery on a child, stem-
ming from a reported
incident involving a six-
grade teammate.
Saint Edward's also
garnered attention, but for
all the wrong reasons. The
school hired one of the top
coaches in the state in Leroy
Foster only to dismiss him a
short time later after details
of his sexual trysts with a
Pahokee secretary while he
was coach there came to
light.

Tigers' basketball
team claw their way
to regional final

.Used to exceptional starts,
the 2007-08 version of the
Martin County boys basket-
ball team was no different,
as the Tigers jumped out to
*an 8-0 mark. After suffering
a narrow 87-73 defeat to
state power W.T. Dwyer, they
quickly rebounded to defeat
a solid Sebastian River team
to move back into the win
column.
From there, the victories
continued to pile up with
Martin County advancing to
the district title game for the
first time since 2003. Facing
Dwyer for the crown, the
Tigers won Round 2, 73-69
to earn its first champi-
onship in six years.
Martin County brushed
aside Treasure Coast in the
Region 4-5A quarterfinal
before meeting Dwyer for
the third time. The game
was even closer than the
previous two with the Tigers
eking out a 1-point win.
The regional final proved
to be a little bit tougher, as
the Tigers couldn't over-
come a decided height
disparity and lost 74-56 to
top-ranked Fort Laud-
erdale-Dillard.
The Tigers still finished the
season an impressive 25-2.

Vero girls wrestling
team makes it,
two in a row,

After winning the state
championship in dominat-
ing fashion in2007, theVero
Beach girls wrestling t6am
had a tougher road to travel
in trying for the repeat. The
Indians were unable td field
a full team, leaving four
weight classes out of 14
unfilled.
Despite the disadvantage,
Vero Beach made it to the
state tournament, but was
behind by two points
heading into the finals.
Cherelle DeBose pinned a
wrestler that had defeated
her three times to keep Vero
Beach's chances alive and
Savanna Duffy, Mercedes
McKenzie and Bridget Siers
also won their final matches
to help propel the Indians to
the crown.
The foursome also won
individual championships
as well.

Third time is charm
for Vero Beach girls
lacrosse
While the Vero Beach girls
wrestling team's perform-
ance was outstanding, the
accomplishments of their
classmates was a little bit
better. After years of coming
up short, the Vero Beach
girls lacrosse squad has
become the team to beat in
Florida, winning their third
state title in a row.
After two crowns in the
Florida Lacrosse League, the
Indians'crushed the Park*
Vista Cobras 18-2 in the
inaugural Florida High
School Athletic Association
State Lacrosse Champi-
onship.
Vero Beach quickly
asserted itself in the finale,
scoring two goals in the first
37 seconds. The team
carried an 11-2 lead into the
locker room and tallied
seven more in the second

6-quart stock pot or
pressure cooker
*Add to cookbook.

Remove skin and as
much fat as possible from
the chicken parts. Soak raw
chicken in cold salted water
for at least one hour. This is
called, "bleeding the
chicken" and gives the
meat a fresher taste. The
following is an optional
step, but I have found it
adds a great deal of flavor
to the soup. Saute onions in
canola oil until they are
lightly golden
(caramelized).
. Add chicken and remain-
ing ingredients. Fill the pot
two-thirds with water and
cook covered about two
hours in the pot or follow
instructions with pressure
cooker. Pour soup into
large colander that is
placed over a large contain-
er and let meat cool until it
can be handled.
If you're just making
broth, chill the soup,
remove fat and freeze broth
in zipper bags. Remove
chicken from bones and
freeze for casseroles and
salads.
For soup, shred some
chicken, mash onions and
celery with a fork or with
your hands and add all to
the broth. Chill; remove fat.
To serve, add any veg-
etable you choose and cook
until tender, or add partial-
ly cooked noodles or freeze
the soup without extra
veggies for the next deli-
cious treat.

to cap a stellar freshman season where
she found the net 66 times.
Like it had in years past, the Indians'
state championship road ran through
Lake Brantley. In 2006, the Indians
defeated the Patriots 7-6 to capture the
program's first title. Last season, the
schools met again in the championship
with Vero Beach pulling away for a 19-10
victory.
This season, while the teams met in the
semifinals, the result was the same, with
thd Indians winning, 18-6.

Dodgers say
goodbye while Orioles
don't say enough

For more than 60 years, the Dodgers


called Vero Beach their spring training
home. With the team opting for more
lavish surroundings in Arizona, Vero
Beach had one last chance to cheer on its
heroes before the team headed out west
for the final time. Fittingly enough, the
Dodgers lost.
More than 7,000 people were in atten-
dance that day with the atmosphere
befitting a playoff game in October more
than a meaningless game in March. The
game featured tons of offense with both
teams combining for 22 runs and 24 hits,
and several lead changes. In the end, the
Astros came away with a 12-10 win.
With the Dodgers gone, city and county
officials turned to the Orioles as a possible
tenant for Holman Stadium. An offer was
made in October, but recently Baltimore
sent back a revised contract that was
rejected by the Indian River County
Commission on Dec. 16.
The offer was rescinded leaving Vero
Beach without spring training for the
foreseeable future.
