New jobs coming to county


By Jay Meisel
meisel@hometownnewsol.com
ST. LUCIE COUNTY An eco-
nomic development official pre-
dicted the announcement of more
than 800 new jobs last week is just
the beginning for 2009.
"It shows me we got a business
community still expanding, espe-
cially in the rough times the coun-
ty is going through," said Larry
Pelton, president of the Economic
Development Council of St. Lucie
County. "I think 2009 is going to
-be a banner year."
At the council's meeting on Jan.
6, it was announced that Liberty

ees in Port St. Lucie and J.J. Taylor
Companies will build a distribu-
tion center in Fort Pierce.

to lost tax

revenue

By Jay Meisel
meisel@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST. LUCIE City
officials have learned that
the loss in property tax
revenue may be double
what was
previously
expected,
Mayor
Patricia
tensen
said last
week.
The city
expected Mayor
that prop- Christiansen.
erty values
would drop .8 to 10 per-
cent, but the St. Lucie
County Property Apprais-
er's Office is estimating 20
percent, Mayor Chris-
tensen said at the monthly
Coffee with the Mayor
event.
If that holds true, the city
may lose almost $6 million
of a $36 million budget,
she said.
City officials felt Port St.
Lucie could deal with an 8
to 10 percent loss, but 20
percent presents a prob-
lem, she said.
During a semi-annual
retreat for city officials,
slated.from Feb. 4 to Feb. 5,
she said, the City Council
will determine whether
projects need to be
delayed.
"We are going to try to
keep the impacts as mini-
mal as possible," she said.
"Unfortunately, things
aren't going to be as bright
and cheery as we thought
they would be."
However, she said, rev-
enue from new develop-
ment may counteract
some of the loss from
property devaluation of
existing structures, she
said.
"I'm keeping my fingers
crossed," she said.
Mayor Christensen said
the city has the second
lowest property tax rate in
the state. There's been no
discussion of a tax
increase, she said.
In other areas, the city
has received brighter

in Port St. Lucie in April 2000, cur-
rently has 1,800 employees. It spe-
cializes in providing medical sup-
plies to people with diabetes. It
also helps people'with inconti-
nence and sleep problems.
Workers at the call center make
contact with diabetes patients
and work with them to make sure
they have adequate medical sup-
plies.
A $1.75 million training grant
from Workforce Florida in Talla-
hassee helped persuade Liberty to
expand in St. Lucie County, said
Keith Jones, chief operating offi-
cer.
The grant will provide for new
employee training, as well as
preparing 1,500 existing employ-
ees to use new software.
Mr. Jones said the company was
considering whether to expand in


St. Lucie County or
in Salem, Va.
The quick of
response of St.
Lucie County and.
state officials to
meet the needs of
Liberty persuad-
ed them to
expand locally,
he said.

"It made it a very easy
decision for us," Mr. Jones said.
He said the 800 employees will
be hired during the next two years.
It's not, like, "you can wave a
magic wand" and hire those
employees immediately," he said.
The other announcement,
regarding J.J. Taylor Companies,
will apparently have less impact
on the job market.
Although'J.J, Taylor, the second


largest
beer distributor in Flori-
da, will employ 70 people at its
new facility, the workers have
already been hired, said Jose

Most popular resolution: To lose weight

But many find it hard to stick with; January resolve often fades by March


By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
Her young son's Cheetos
puffed cheese snacks are
likely to prove problematic.
But Fort Pierce resident
Nive Robertson said she is
determined to skip them in
order to reach her goal of
dropping 15 to 20 pounds
this year.
And she's not alone.
Millions of Americans
have made weight loss a
top goal for 2009, according
to the U.S. General Services
Administration.
Weight loss is repeatedly
the No. 1 New Year's resolu-
tion, beating out financial
and other goals.
Other top 'priorities
include managing debt,
saving money, quitting
smoking, switching jobs for
higher pay, reducing stress
at work, drinking less alco-
hol, taking a vacation and
volunteering, according to
the GSA.
Visitors to the Fort Pierce


and Port St. Lucie branches
of Before and After Weight
Loss Clinics primarily want
to get healthy and improve
self-esteem, staff said.
And they're willing to pay.
At the clinics, the phone
calls keep coming and new
clients have increasingly
signed up this month.
Prices range from $99 to
$599, based on the number
of pounds each client
needs to shed, with the
average cost around $325.
The fees cover the time it
takes to lose the weight,
plus six weeks of stabiliza-
tion and a year of mainte-
nance.
"This year, even despite
the economy, we're doing
quite well. It's almost a
recession-proof business,"
said Lee McCaskill, who
runs four of the weight loss
centers.
The increase in weight-
loss ads on television sug-
gest as much. Weight
Watchers spots contend
repeatedly with Jenny
Craig, Special K, NutriSys-

how good your resolution is, is that nothing

tem and other programs
daily. And online, a Google
search returns more than
1.3 million results for Web
sites offering help to meet
weight-loss resolutions in
2009.
Getting community sup-
port for the effort has
become increasingly popu-
lar.
In St. Lucie County, some
schools have adapted the
television series, "The
Biggest Loser," to encour-
age students to shed exces-
sive pounds through a
series of fun challenges.
It's an idea that has also
caught on in the corporate
world, with several compa-
nies creating staff pro-
grams.
Even Hometown News


employees have joined the
growing the trend.
The company launched a
10-week "New Year, New
You" program, a friendly
interoffice contest encour-
age team-based weight
loss.
But for many dieters, the
zeal for their NewYear's res-
olution. fizzles by March,
acknowledges the GSA.
And that's when the hard
work really begins, experts
warn.
"The bottom line with
anybody, no matter how
good your resolution is, is
that nothing happens
unless you're ready," said
Ms. McCaskill, co-author of
national bestseller, "Wake
Up and Live the Life You
Love."

news, she said.
Crosstowni Parkway is
months ahead of schedule.
The final two segments
leading to a new interchange
at Interstate 95 should be
completed by late March.
That is good news for peo-


ple who experience traffic
delays at the St. Lucie West
interchange, she said.
"Everyone is anxious to
have that interchange," Mayor
Christensen said.
But planning is still going
on for the section of
Crosstown Parkway that will
extend to U.S. 1.
City, state and federal offi-
cials are working on finding


the best location for a bridge
over the St. Lucie River.
City officials hope the fed-
eral government will speed up
granting environmental per-
mits as part of a stimulus pro-
gram, she said.
Funding is already in place
for a project that will put peo-
ple to work, she added.
The new Becker Road inter-
change at 1-95 is expected to
be completed on schedule in
late April, Mayor Christensen
said.
The new civic center that
opened in December was also
successful, she said.
On one side, the center has


been booked for numerous
events, including conven-
tions, Weddings and other
events.
The number of member-
ships for the recreational facil-
ities at the civic center has
surpassed expectations, she
said.
As of Jan. 1, she said, 800
individuals or families had
bought memberships.
The city is moving forward
with plans to rebuild the
Ravenswood recreational
center that has been essen-
tially closed since the hurri-
canes in 2004, she said.

SKIN: INSIDE AND OUTSIDE YOUR MOUTH

Q- Is the skin inside my mouth different from the skin on my body?
A: The skin in your mouth and on your lips is essentially the same as the skin on the rest of
your body. Therefore it is susceptible to the same ailments that can affect you in other places.
A rash in the mouth, for instance, can be related to a rash on another part of the body. So in
some cases your dentist may detect a condition the he,'in conjunction with a dermatologist, a |
physician who specializes in skin care, can address. Another example is canker sores, which can
be caused by a patient taking a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug like ibuprofen. Just as a
drug like this can cause stomach ulcers, so can ti cause oral ulcers. This is why it's important for patients to give
their dentists a complete account of their medical histories and a listing of any medications they are taking.
Many diseases, including skin diseases, will show themselves in the mouth. Dental experts recommends that
dentists be especially observant if they have a patient'who's being treated for sun-damaged skin. Since the sun
obviously shines down, the lower lip is a common location for skin cancer. Frank conversation with your dentist c
when you have a regular checkup is important for overall health.

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".


Fellow Florida Car Dealers, if you dor
know me, I should tell you that I don't profes
to be some "holier than thou" car dealer wh
was always perfect for the past 38 year
W I look4qt somq of my past advertitin
an sales tactics, I am not always proud
Bu: t I have evolved as my customerss hav
evolved. My customers' expectations, levi
J of education and sophistication are muc
higher today. Your customers are no differen
My remarks are made sincerely and with
positive intent toward you and your custom
\ ers. I am not trying to tell you
how to run your business. I "My C
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your eX peCt
customers. P


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


i't Now, here is the good news. After eliminat-
is ing the dealer fee my profit per car did drop
1o by about the amount of the dealer fee, but
s. my customers realized I was now giving them
ig a fair shake and quoting a corpplete pt.tther
d. door price with no "surprises". And the word
'e spread. My volume of car sales began to rise
el rapidly. Sure, I was making a few hundred
:h dollars 'less per car, but I was selling a lot
it more cars. I was and am selling cars to many
a of your former customers. My bottom line
i- has improved, not because I eliminated the
y'- '- --""'' dealer fee hbut because I was

able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
or used car. You can do the
same.


ion ana Why am I writig this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
nation are I think of myself as the new
"sheriff" that has come to
er today." "clean up South Florida". In
fact, I am well aware that this
letter is, to some extent, self-
serving, Many people will read this letter and
leam why they should buy'a car from me,
and not you. And, I am also aware that most
dealers who read this will either get angry and
ignore it or hot have the courage to follow my
lead. But maybe you will be the exception. If
you have any interest in following my lead,
call me anytime. I don't have a secretary and
I don't screen any of my phone calls. I would
love to chat with you about this.

The 3.1mile run/walk,
scheduled for Jan. 24, has

they compete in the race
that begins at 8 a.m. at-the
Fort Pierce Community
Center on Indian River and
Seaway drives.
The course, measured
and timed by the Sailfish
Striders, will cross the
South Beach Bridge and
back and travel through
part of the downtown area.
Registration forms are
available on the Sailfish
Striders Web site, at Fleet


Feet Sports, Lincoln Park
Academy and John Carroll
High School and through
many athletic depart-
ments at other area
schools.
Pre-registration cost for
all students is $10 and
adults $15. Registration and
packet pick-up may be com-
pleted this year at Fleet Feet
Sports or by contacting Sue-
Ellen Sanders for mail-in
information. The first 250
registrations will be guaran-

This year, she said, will
be the 25th celebration.
The commemoration,
started with two days of
events and has grown. to a
variety of activities
throughout January.
Ms. McCrary will join
others in participating in
festivals, a parade,, music
and other activities that
started on Jan. 9 and will

According to what we know
today, it took three more
decades and led to the Queen
of England:. Queen Elizabeth I.
In 1571, the year in which the
Reformation was reintroduced,
the Queen is said to have
received the gift of a small
watch fastened to a bracelet
from her favorite, the Earl of
Leicester. Here, at least
according to what is known
now, begins the history of -the
watch worn on the wrist.
1750 it was popular for
mothers and nursemaids to fas-
ten a pendant watch to a
bracelet.
1790 the Schweizer Uhr
refers to a watch fastened to a
bracelet.
1806 the Parisian watch-
maker and goldsmith Nitot cre-
ated two ornamental bracelets,
one with a small watch, the
other with a mechanically oper-
ated calendar.
1831 until 1838 the House
of Breguet delivered various
small watches with armbands
to customers.
1854 the horse bus was
introduced in Paris and the
coachman were said to have
worn wristwatches to keep their
schedules.
1880 around this time the
first wristwatches presumably
made in large series were pro-
duced. The were paid for by the
German Navy, which ordered
them from Girard Perregaux as
service watches to be worn on
the wrist.
1887 gold and silver wrist-
watches with so-called sheer
bands were sold in Lucerne to
foreigners, particularly to
women tourists from America.
As we can see, the wrist-
watch is a very old timepiece,
older than todays society is
aware of.

that no students applying

school shortly after
desegregation, but a year
before LincOln Park and
Dan McCarty high schools
were combined into the

Do your own


genealogy research


M y grandchildren
think I'm as old as
dirt.
My 13-year-old grand-
son, Tyler, is continually
asking me about what I did
and had, at his age. How
did I listen to music in a
car? A radio, is that all?
Where were the tapes, CD's,
Ipods? How did we record?
I've been doing a lot of
genealogy lately and
started applying his
thinking to my experiences
and knowledge.
Technology has come a
long !, since I started this
quoi A'the earlyl970s. I
was lucky that I lived in
Orlando, which had a large
public library and wonder-
ful genealogy department. I
had microfilm and a hand-
cranked reader. The readers
were in short, supply, so I
would get my children off
to school, and be there
when the library opened at
9 a.m. in order to get one. If
I left it unattended I would
lose my turn, so I satthere
all day, turning that crank,


page by page, until it was
time to retrieve the chil-
dren from school.
I traced my family
through census records,
state by state, county to
county, page by page, with
no indexes.

We live here, too

It's no wonder that people who live in Port St. Lucie have a
hard time making it. It's not just for people who are retired and
live here on a seasonal basis. What about those who live and
work here and send their children to school in the city? Why is
the green market only going to be available on Tuesdays from
10 a.m. and 2 p.m,?What about those who work?We get it in the
backside all the time.
Thank you to the council who only think about the seniors
and the snowbirds.

More on the medians

I travel up and down U.S. 1 everyday and I can't believe the
mess the city is making out of the roads.
I've seen more fender benders due to the ridiculous con-
struction projects and medians than I ever saw When we were
able to freely use the middle turning lane.
We're not idiots. We were able to navigate safely through the
median and be able to turn into the businesses we wanted to
without as much of a dent into somebody else's car..
But now, we have to travel half a mile just to turn around to
get into the turning lane. Who's going to pay my gas bill? It's
absolutely absurd.

Beware the inauguration

With the presidential inauguration quickly approaching, I
hope the citizens of the United States are ready for all of the
idiots who are going to think this gives them some sort of God-
given right to act like clowns.
If law enforcement isn't on guard, there will be anarchy.

Take care of your health

After the terrible and unfortunate death of John Tkavolta's
son, I hope more citizens are aware of the effects of seizures
and unnoticed brain ailments.
A seizure should never be taken lightly or dismissed as a freal
event. There are many causes for them, some that can be dis-

CIRCULATION AUDIT BY

VERIFICATION


Using a signature file for your e-mail


If you use e-mail, you
may have noticed that
messages that yo.u
receive from some people
always end with the same
thing.
At a glance, it may seem
as though every time they
send an e-mail they end
their message by typing
the same little ending
every time.
This is not necessarily
the case. E-mail programs
allow what is called a
"signature (sig) file" to be
automatically attached,
every time an e-mail
messagess typed..
People started using
these "sig files" because of
spam. Spam is the annoy-
ing form of advertising
that uses e-mail to send a
message to thousands,
even millions, of e-mail
addresses simultaneously.
The reason it's annoying'
is, usually the message is
unwanted and tends to
clog the Internet by using
up precious bandwidth.
Often, a person will
access his or her e-mail
only to find several
useless messages ranging
from get-rich-quick
schemes to online porn
ads.
Since "spamming" is so
frowned-upon within the


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY


online community (and
the practice can do a lot to
ruin a business' credibili-
ty), many people started
to use the signature file as
a reasonable, accepted
alternative to get their
message out.
The sig file is an unob-'
trusive way to send the
information.that's on your
business card in every e-
mail you send, without
the worry that it will be
considered spam. And,
since it is automatically
included with every
message you send, it's not
necessary to type in the
same information over
and over.
"But I thought sending
an unsolicited advertise-
ment in e-mail is spam.
Wouldn't that mean that
.people who use these sig
files are spammers?"
No, using a sig file is a
generally acceptable way
to include your advertis-
ing or contact informa-
tion, provided that the
content of the mail you


are sending is relevant to
the recipients. If you send
only your sig file to 20 or
more unsuspecting
recipients, however, this
would cross the line and
would be viewed as
"spamming."
Newsgroups (message
boards) are another area
where a signature file can
work wonders.
Again, as long as the
message you post to the
group is relevant, your sig
file will go along for the
ride. Now everyone who
reads your message (could
be millions, depending on
the board) will also see
your sig file and most
people will not be upset
about that provided the
message you posted was
relevant to the discussion.
Creating a signature file
is easy and can be done
with most e-mail pro- -
grams. There is a window
where you can type your
signature', directly and
then save it for use in your
, e-mail.Agood sig file is
usually only a couple lines
long and gets straight to
the point.
Typically, the same text
that would usually go on a
real business card can be
used. For security rea-
sons, however, you


shouldn't put personal
information in your
signature file, so think
carefully before including
your home address or
phone number.
If your e-mail program
doesn't offer a way to

Finding courage to grieve and move on


S don't know if I have the
courage to write this
column. If I do, it may
help someone else coping
with.grief and depression
and that's why I'm going
to try.
When I last wrote about
getting through the
holidays alone, I was the
"Energizer Bunny," trying
to keep so busy that I
wouldn't cry and no one
would suspect that I was
hurting. I had been the
best sexual assault victim,
the best breast cancer
patient, the best lupus
patient and the best
caregiver. Now I'd be the
best widow.
I thought I was doing
well, not understanding
that it wasn't a contest
and that I had nothing to
prove. I forgot that grief
isn't linear, where you feel
better every day. Some
days are good and some
days are bad.
The third-month
anniversary of Roy's death'
plunged me into grief as
excruciating as the grief I
felt when he died. I was
not prepared for it. I
thought I was "over" that
stage. I didn't understand
that grief is not the flu


ALIVE
& WELL
SHELLEY KOPPEL


and you don't feel better
every day. Griefis a
process, a long process,
and you cannot short-'
circuit it by strength of
will. I know. I tried.
I was terribly afraid that
the pain would not get
better. I was afraid that
the holidays would be too
hard. I was overwhelmed
with paperwork, not just
from the U.S., but from
Britain, where Roy was
from. If you think dealing
with one government is
tough, you should try two!
Finally I just felt I
couldn't cope. I'm still too
embarrassed to discuss
what happened, even
though I shouldn't be, but
I ended up in the hospital
for three days. There I did
something I wish I'd been
doing all along. I grieved.
Because I had bottled it
up inside, I cried almost
nonstop.
As I started' to feel
better, I began to listen to
what people were telling


me, instead of listening to
the inner voice that said I
hadn't done enough for
Roy, that I was weak and a
"loser." I began to listen
to people who said how
much they admired the
five years of love and care
I'd given my husband,
especially in the last year
of his life, as things got
more difficult and even
frightening.
I devoted myself to Roy
at the expense of my
physical health and
emotional well-being. I
did it because of my love
for him and I'd gladly do
it again. Now I've learned
to be proud of what I
accomplished, keeping
him at home with me. I've
also learned that I must
slow down, grieve and
fake better care of myself
and stop putting so much
pressure on myself to do
better.
None of it is going to be
easy. It will take as much
courage to move on as it
did to care for Roy. It will
mean understanding that
he is gone, at least physi-
cally, but that he can live
inside me, in the memo-
ries I have. It means
understanding that a new
phase of my life has


begun. I don't know what
path it will take, but I will
just stay in the moment
and not anticipate the
future.
I hope that what I've
written helps someone
else who is struggling
with a loss or is too
embarrassed to ask for
help with depression or
grief. Courage is not the
absence of fear, it's being
afraid, and then doing
something about the fear.
I recently found a torn
clipping with an old
prayer from a former
slave turned preacher. Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr.
used it in a speech before
the Hawaiian legislature
in 1959. It says what I feel.
"Lord, we ain't what we'
want to be; we ain't what
we ought to be; we ain't
what we gonna be; but
thank God, we ain't what
we was."
That's how I feel right
now.

From page A6
to get down and dirty and
actually do the work for
yourself.
Please don't take those
indexes at face value. Just
because they aren't listed,
doesn't mean they aren't
there, you have to go look
for them. What looks like
the exact person you are
looking for on the index,
probably isn't. Go to the
actual page, and look at
each person in the
household. Then find this
person on the census
before and after, and every
census they are on for
their entire life. Document
the entire family, age,
birthplace, etc. year by
year.
This is called "doing
your census work." This
should be done for every
family in your database.
Time consuming? You bet
it is! But your work will be
documented (remember
to add your sources as you
go) and will be much more
accurate, and maybe
completely different, than
all those you are so
inclined to just copy from
someone else's research.
When you start docu-
menting these families
yourself, and actually
looking them up and
checking the facts on your
own, you will be amazed
at how wrong your
Internet copying has been.
I've found grandparents,
aunts and uncles listed in
families of complete
strangers, by someone
who had just stuck them
where it looked like maybe
they should go.
The fact is, one person
does poor research, or just
gets a few names or facts
wrong, and that throws
the whole family genealo-
gy into turmoil. Then they
throw the whole thiig
onto the Internet. The next
person comes along and
finds their ancestor listed,
with the whole genealogy
already done. Wow! It's so
easy to just copy it and
add it to your own data-
.base.I ain-eve guilty Qit,
r~iyself, and i knoW better.
Dozens of people do this,
so when you type in
"Daniel } Monahan, b
1849," 50 family trees
show up, all with the exact
information. It must be
true if so many people
have it, correct? These are
great clues, but just use
them as that.
Have you ever consid-
ered that the whole family
tree you just found could
be the figment of some-
one's imagination, and
just put on as a prank? I
could do this myself very
easily and it would be
copied by everyone who
found it and be taken as
fact. Scary, isnrt it? All that
"stuff" you have copied
may be wrong.
This is why professional
genealogists preach
document, document,
document and always site
your sources! If you will
notice, most Internet
family trees have no
sources, many have no
person to contact, and if
they do, the contact
person has no useful
information. They will tell
you they just copied it
from someone else.
In genealogical
research, the rule of
thumb is that you need
three sources that agree
before the fact is proven.
That is often tough to do,
and at times impossible,
but it will stand the test of
time when accomplished.
The saying goes,
"garbage in, garbage out,"
and "if you want some-
thing done right, do it
yourself." These are
especially true in genealo-
gy.
If anyone else does
research for you, always
check it against the family
facts you know for sure.
And that, my friend, is


20 on connecting the dots:
researching lateral lines,
friends and neighbors to
solve your dead ends.

Port St. Lucie looking for future sources of water


By Jay Meisel
meisel@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST. LUCIE City
officials are looking into
.future alternative sources
of drinking water, includ-
ing the ocean.
Tetra Tech, a Califor-
nia-based engineering


firm with an office in
Orlando, will conduct a
study on whether the city
needs a desalinization
.plant.
"We are looking at alter-
native water sources that
will be needed to provide
water to our community,"
said Donna Rhoden, public

JThe primary focus of the
study is whether it's feasi-
ble for Port St. Lucie to
desalinate ocean water.
Even if the city decides to
go into that direction, she
said, it likely won't be for
decades.

Port St. Lucie obtained a
20-year permit last year
from the South Florida
Water Management Dis-
trict to obtain water from a
shallow aquifer and the
deeper Floridan aquifer.
Some residents obtain
water from wells.
The city is conducting
the study because, the
water district has encour-
aged municipalities to look
at different sources of
water, she said.
Port St. Lucie doesn't
have direct access to the
ocean, a factor that Ms.
Rhoden said will be con-
sidered in the study.


Desalinization of ocean
water isn't something that
will just occur in the future,
she said.
Plants already exist in
the United States, includ-
ing one in Tampa, she said.
Whether desalinization
of water from the ocean is
feasible, water district offi-
cials said that the technol-
ogy may be needed.
If an aquifer near the
surface should become
depleted, they said, some
desalinization may be
needed as more water is
obtained from a deeper
aquifer.
Port St. Lucie already


does some desalinization
of water coming from the
Floridan aquifer.
Another possibility is for
cities to conserve water by
reclaiming wastewater that
could be used for irriga-
tion, said Terrie Bates,
assistant, deputy executive
director of water resources
for the district.
If reclaimed water was
used for irrigation, that
would mean "less water
you would have to pump
out of the ground," she
said.
Ms. Roden said the city
already is reclaiming water
for irrigation.


Green Market celebrates


its third anniversary


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST. LUCIE It was
three years ago that the
Green Market at City Center
in Port St. Lucie began. It
quickly became the local
gathering place to make
new friends and enjoy shop-
ping and lunching under the
clear blue Port St. Lucie sky.
That was before the old
shopping center was demol-
ished to make way for the
new Civic Center, Town
Square and so much more
to come.
The Green Market contin-
ued in season until demoli-
tion took over and almost
two years passed before the
Civic Center opened and the
Town Square of City Center
became home for the green
market.


The anniversary was cele-
brated on Tuesday, Jan. 13 in
its new home on the Town
Square of City Center.
More than ever, small
scale farmers need and
deserve everyone's support
and the green market is
where those small scale
farmers direct sell their
freshest produce, two of
which are "UPick" farms.
The ornamental plants
are offered by local small
scae growers. The market's
clams and oysters are
farmed in the Indian River
Lagoon. The stone crab
claws, shrimp and other fish
are fresh from the Florida
Keys and Gulf.
All the breads are artisan,
meaning the dough was
made fresh under the same
roof the bread was baked. JC
is the baker, and has created


outrageous breads with bars
of Belgium chocolate, but-
terscotch, raspberry, nuts
and other decadent addi-
tions.
Great lunches are avail-
able from Jamaican chicken,
rice peas and beef pies;
ribs; gyros; pulled pork and
Quesidillas, to hot dogs,
hamburgers, soft ice cream
and Hawaiian Iceballs.
The market also offers
award winning hot sauces
made and bottled in St.
Lucie County, as well as a
great variety of honeys gath-
ered for five generations by
a local family of bee keepers.
In addition to all the great
food and plants, the market
hosts a variety of local arti-
sans and crafters who offer
unique boutique gift items
and local musicians per-
form live every Tuesday.

Pre-planning for a loved one can
help significantly in time of need


By Jay Meisel
meisel@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST. LUCIE -While
working in a monument.
shop in Martin County,
Robert Antonucci often
talked to Port St. Lucie cus-
tomers, he said last week.
"A lot of the people buy-
ing monuments living in
Port St. Lucie wondered
why Port St. Lucie did not
have a cemetery in which
to bury their loved one,"
Mr. Antonucci said. \
Responding to that need,
in, 2004, Mr. Antonucci
established Rolling Oaks
Cemetery on 18 acres of
land.
At the time, it was locat-
ed in an isolated area of the
city. Now, Port St. Lucie has
grown up near the ceme-
tery.
Since 2004, families have
buried nearly 200 loved.
ones at the cemetery.
Mr. Antonucci estimates
the cemetery won't become
full for at least 100 years.
The owner and staff of
Rolling Oaks make every'
effort to allow families to
grieve without being undu-
ly burdened by the costs of
burial.
They urge people to buy
cemetery plots ahead of
time.
Until the end of January,
people can buy one space
and get another free.
Cemetery plots range in
cost from $1,595 to $2,295.
Mr. Antonucci said
Rolling Oaks will allow
families to make payments
for three to four years with-
out any interest charge.
"We don't want to see
anybody get a payment
they don't think they can


handle, so we work within
their budget," he said.
. By paying in advance,.
parents can help their chil-
dren avoid problems.
Sometimes, when more
than one sibling is
involved, he said, they dis-
agree on where their par-
ents should be buried.
If the plots are bought
ahead of time, he said, the
children know what their
parents wanted.
"If the parents take care
of everything, it makes it
much easier for the family,"
he said.
And it saves the family
members, as the payment
agreement locks in the
price.
Recently, he said, the
prices increased for the
first time, so those who
bought ahead of time
"saved quite a bit of
money," he said.
Besides cemetery plots,
Rolling Oaks has a mau-
soleum; another mau-
soleum will soon 'be avail-
able.
Rolling Oaks also can
handle cremation burials.
The cemetery has special
sections for Catholics and
veterans, and there are sev-
eral' nondenominational
sections.
Rolling Oaks stresses
providing caring, personal
service in time of grief.
The staff works with all
the funeral homes in the
area.
While Mr. Antonucci is
no longer involved in mak-
ing monuments, a wide
variety of monuments and
markers are available.
Rolling Oaks is located at
2200 S.W. Del Rio Blvd. Call

manager named them the
Mudcats.
Today, the band consists

Teatro Lirico D'Europa's full-scale production of Guiseppe Verdi's classic opera, 'Aida' will be presented at the Sun-
rise Theatre on Jan. 26.


'Aida' is an operatic spectacle


By Shelley Koppel
Entertainment writer
'FORT PIERCE -
Mounting Giuseppe
Verdi's epic opera, "Aida,"
is a massive undertaking
and rare treat to have a
production of it on the
Treasure Coast.
Teatro Lirico D'Europa
is bringing the full-scale
.opera to the Sunrise The-
atre on Jan. 26 and Jenny
Kelly, the ,booking agent
and wife of the company's
founder, Georgio Lalove,
spoke by telephone about
taking opera around the


world.
"This is our tenth con-
secutive season .touring
opera in the United
States," she said. "We're a
European company that
originated in Bulgaria.
We've done more than
4,000 performances since
worldwide since our first
tour in 1988."
The company was
founded by Mr. Lalove, a
former opera singer, and
French impresario Yves
Josse, a former ballet
dancer. They wanted to
put together a touring
opera company and


blended soloists from
around the world with a
Bulgarian Orchestra and
chorus.
"All of our operas are
fully staged," Ms. Kelly
said. "This is the third
tithe we've toured with
'Aida,' but this is a new
production.
"Over the summer, the
set was built in Bulgaria
and shipped over. We've
toured all over Florida;
including Naples, Saraso-
ta, Palm Beach, Daytona,
Jacksonville and Tampa
Bay. Our production
includes a lot of dancers,


and teens will enjoy that,"
she said.
Verdi's opera, which
premiered in Cairo in
1871, tells the story of
Aida, an Ethiopian
princess captured and
brought into slavery in
Egypt. A military com-
mander, Radames, has to
choose between his love
for her and his loyalty to
the Pharaoh.
Singing the role of Aida
is soprano Olga Cherni-
sheva, who has per-
formed with the Bolshoi

Directions for a magical

a


STT ello smart shoppers.
/-An I-I As usual, there was a
1 JLbit of excitement in
I the Borg family over the
holidays. My 19-year-old
grandson, Addison, had an
emergency appendectomy
on NewYears Eve 2008, a
year to remember!
This week's recipe,
according to him, has
magical healing powers.
From the time he was a little
tyke, an upset stomach, a
cold, a headache, a scraped
knee even a burned finger
would surely get better if
only I would make him some
"tourkey soup."
Take the turkey frame out
of the freezer; it's soup time.
Many make turkey soup
just like chicken soup, but
take my word for it, once
you've tried it my mom's way,
you'll never like it any other
way. Tiny meatballs and
noodles make it a one dish
meal. It's a.kid's favorite,
Cook-a-cabulary- Scald:
To heat to just below the
boiling point.
Enjoy. See you next week


TURKEY SOUP,
ITALIAN STYLE

To make soup, nothing.
*,beats a pressure cooker. The
soup will take1/2-hour
compared to two hours in a
pot.

1 turkey frame
1 large onion, 3-inches in
diameter, peeled and
sliced
3 large stalks celery with
leaves, cut up
I teaspoon salt
1/2-teaspoon black
pepper
2 tablespoons chopped
fresh parsley, or 1
tablespoon, dried
Half of an 8-ounce can

color, very little flavor)
6-quart stock pot or
pressure cooker

Wash turkey frame,
remove traces of skin and
stuffing. If the turkey frame is
very large, you might have to
do this in two batches.
Leftovers freeze great.
Place all in the pot and fill
two-thirds with water. Cook
two hours in pot or as
instructed with pressure
cooker. Pour soup into large
colander that has been
placed over a large container.
Let cool. Remove meat from
bones and add to soup. Too
much meat? Freeze it for a
casserole. Mash vegetables
with fork or hands and add
to soup.
Return soup to pot and
bring to a boil. Drop raw
baby meatballs into boiling
broth. Cook about 10
minutes. Chill soup.
When ready to serve,
remove congealed fat. Bring
soup to a boil, add medium
size noodles that have been
cooked halfway and cook
until tender. Serve with a
sprinkling of grated Italian
cheese.
NOTE: My family always
used Mueller's Kuluski
noodles for this soup.
Although not easy to find,
they're sure worth the
search. I have recently found
that linguini broken up
works great.

PORT ST." LUCIE -
Although the Jaguars were
the hosts of the recent inau-
gural Port St. Lucie Invita-
tional girls weightlifting
meet, they were less than
gracious to the competition.
Port St.Lucie won two
weight classes the 101-
pound and 154-pound in
the eight-team meet and
topped Fort Pierce Central
by three points.
"Large invitationals play
into our favor," Jaguars'
head coach Chris Dorminey
said. "Thirteen of 15 girls


competing scored points
(for us).
"The girls really stepped
up."
While Dorminey was con-
fident in his squad's chances
going into the competition,
the Jaguars had their
doubts, knowing the caliber
of their opponents.
"Coach is always setting
up the statistics and
chances and what needs to
happen for us "to win,
Stephanie Lacorte said. "I
didn't think it was going to
happen.
"I was completely

Fishing under a full moon


T hat was one big moon
we had last week. It
was brighter than
usual, lasting three nights.
Talk to any angler and
they all have their idea on
how to fish the full moon.
Most will say that the best
bite takes place during the
first three days before the
moon.
There's no rocket science
here. A big bright moon has
every thing lit up. There's no
place to hide if you are a
baitfish, so the fish are up
all night eating. So if you are
up all night eating, you will
probably sleep in and eat
later in the day.
Now getting back to that
full moon. Go later, the fish
have been up all night
eating, inshore and off-
shore. The best bite time
afternoon.
Offshore, the best bet was
bottom fishing. Mutton and
snappers in the 10-pound
class were keeping anglers
busy. The favored bait was
sardines and the action
started in 30 feet of water.
The grouper were smaller,
with action starting in 60 to
90 feet. Sardines also top
that bait list.
Trolling was a hard call
.early in the week.
Before the moon, the fish
were on the line from 80- to
125-feet, then the moon
came and the fish scattered.
The only bites were late
ones, if any. I heard about a
dolphin here and there, but
no pattern.
Sails were looking at baits
and backing off. The kings
were in the 10-12 pound
class and they were in 30-
feet of water. The only one
that was a guarantee was
the Spanish mackerels.
They were south of the inlet
and eating anything that
was chrome on a thin mono
leader.
Surf anglers had a good
week with the pompano.
Some days they were up
lose and others out far. You
need to be able to make that
long cast, but do not be
afraid to move that bait in;
you could be on the other
side of the fish.
On the catch list were
blue fish, not so many but
enough to keep one inter-
ested. Cut bait and spoons
were on their bait list.
Whiting were in and out all
week. If you are not catch-
ing fish, move to one of our
other access points. Fifty
yards will make a differ-
ence.

the moon. The bite started
after noon, the sun was high
and if you were fishing deep
or in shaded water, I know
you did well. Pompano were
in many locations, just not
at the limit.
Anglers fishing the St.
Lucie and the Indian rivers
found the fish for a few
minutes, hooked a few and
then they were gone. The
river is clear, you can see
the fish and they can see


you, so when you hook up,
look to see where the others
are going and change
locations.
There's not much in the
red fish department to talk
about, but the trout made
up for them. Small jerk baits
and live shrimp were thie
favorites all week. Look for
those sand holes inrthe
grass, put your bait oh the
sand and move it very
slowly, the fish are in the
grass waiting for something
to pass.
Watch your charts for that
full moon and have a plan B
ready.

Winter practice can help your summer swing


his is not only the best
time of year for golf,
but the worst as well.
The weather is perfect right
now for golf. Not too hot,
not too cold, just right. In
fact, I believe that I saw the
Three Bears over on the
12th fairway. The problem
with this time of year is
everyone wants to play golf,
so the courses are crowded
and the economics of
supply and demand is at its
greatest.
What to do? Well, there is
an old saying that you
should "Practice to play, not

play to practice". Here is
your chance to get that
game in shape so that when
the rates do drop and the
tee sheets aren't as full, you
will shock your friends with
just how good your game
has become.
We are fortunate enough
to live in an area where
there are many dedicated
ranges and courses with
practice areas that will allow
you to get in some swings.
All you need is about an
hour of free time to hit a
bucket of balls. I can usually
do this during lunch. I pack
a canned drink, a sandwich
and a piece of fruit to eat on
the way or at the course.


Okay, sometimes it's a
brownie instead of a
banana, but I have needs.
With so many courses
here, finding one within a
few minutes drive from your
home or office isn't difficult.
I usually spend two or more
days each week at Ham-
mock Creek in Palm City.
The course is right down the
street from my office and
sponsors my golf radio
show, so they treat me just
like family. I'll hit balls one
day, chip another, and work
on smoothing out my
putting stroke another.
If you'd rather stay home,
try your garage or back yard.
Set up a net or even hang an
old set of drapes from the
ceiling in the garage to hit
balls into. The new practice
balls, made from the same
material that goes into the
synthetic corks in wine
bottles, fly just a short
distance and bounce

harmlessly off windows,
doors, cars and cats,
eliminating the need for
nets and such.
Practicing your putting is
even easier. You can putt
neatly anywhere and even
get in some television time
while working on that
stroke.
If you prefer a real range,
a bucket of balls should cost
you well under 10 dollars.
That's nothing compared to
the price of an actual round
of golf at this time of the
year. Some ranges have
lighting so that you cari get
in your practice after work
or after dinner if you prefer.
I take the bucket of balls to
the chipping and bunker
area and work on those
shots. Then I pick them up
and hit full shots.
If money is a problem,
there is no cost to use a
putting green at just about
any public club facility. In
addition, practicing your
putting is the fastest way to
improve your scores on the
course. If you take two putts
per green, that's 36 shots on
the greens alone. If you can
gain some confidence with
your putter and sink a few
more of those five-footers
and avoid three-putting,
imagine how quickly your
scores will drop.
The same goes for
chipping. Most amateurs
miss three out of every four
greens during a round.
Keeping your feel and touch
for those chip shots sharp is
one key to scoring well. How
often have you spent the
entire winter without
picking up a club, and find
that the deft scoring touch
you had perfected is absent
from your game for about
the first half-dozen rounds
of the season?
If money is not a problem,
but time is, consider getting
lessons. There is a multitude
of teaching professionals
here on Florida's east coast.
Some teach one-on-one,
which can be quite expen-
sive, while others teach in a
less expensive group
setting. You and your
friends could approach.a .
professional about a group
.lesson and save a few
"dollars. Getting lessons in
this way relieves you of the
worry of embarrassing
yourself in front of strangers
and your entire foursome
stands to gain some
improvement.
Should you decide on a
lesson and a teaching pro,
make sure that he or she
understands what you want
to accomplish and you must
have realistic expectations.
It's very important that you.
are both on the same page.
Whatever your plan is to
cope with the winter,
remember to enjoy it.
Besides, with enough winter
practice, you could shock all
of your sofa-bound partners
once your season begins.

shocked."
Once the final lifts had
taken place; Dorminey was
satisfied with the team's
performance, but had to.
anxiously tally the results to
see where the Jaguars fin-
ished.
"We're strong in the lower
weight classes, so adding
up the scores in them we
were pretty far ahead,"
Dorminey said. "I knew
Central was strong in the
top three weight classes, so
the scores got closer and
closer.
"When we .won they (the
team) were excited."
The victory was an
impressive start to the sea-
son for the Jaguars', pro-
gram, which is beginning
just its second season. The
squad has grown in mem-
bership from their inaugu-
ral season, thanks in part to
Dorminey who took over
for Brian Kerbel, who left
the school.
"Last year, they only had
seven girls," Dorminey said.
"This year we have 18.
"The main things I've
been preaching is that
weightlifting is a universal
sport. It is a sport that can


help build you for other
sports.
"I tried to go around to
the other sports and grab as
many (players) as I can. I tell
the coaches to send them to
them and I'll send them
back to you in shape."
So far Dorminey's recruit-
ing efforts has paid huge
dividends. The team picked
up athletes from volleyball
and basketball, and also
added six members of the
girls' track team, which
Dorminey also coaches.
Coming out on top in the
invitational didn't hurt
either.
"We've added four girls
since we won," Dorminey
said. "In some classes we
have four girls and only two
get to lift.
"I wouldn't be surprised if
we have 20 to 30 in the
future. The competition is
going to be among us
instead of the other teams."
Girls weightlifting has
seen a rise in popularity in
recent years. The partici-
pants compete in 10 classes
depending on their actual
weight, ranging from 101
,pounds to unlimited.
"You can gain or lose
weight to move up or down
'in class," Dorminey said.
Despite the low turnout
for last year's squad, their


team featured two members
that made it to the state
tournament. Both senior
Shaquita Love and junior
Lacorte returned this sea-
son and have already made
an impact, each winning
their respective weight
classes at the invitational.
Love lifted 105 pounds in
the bench press and did the
same amount in the clean
and jerk, while Lacorte went
for 135 pounds in the bench
press and 160 in the clean
and jerk.
"In track, Shaquita always
lifted weights, but she didn't
come out for the team until
midway into last season,"
Dorminey said. "At states,
she didn't get her minimum
on the clean and jerk .or she
would've been sixth in the
state.
. "I've seen a change in hdr
demeanor this year. She has
a chance to win big.
Lacorte was the sectional
champion last season and
finished llth at the state
meet. Her experience at the
finals has helped to moti-
vate her to step it up this
year.
"I thought I was decent in
weightlifting," Lacorte said.
"When I went to states,
there were plenty of girls
that were 10 times stronger
than I was. It puts you in


your place.
"I haven't missed a prac-
tice so far. I'm shooting for
top six so I can get a medal."
Besides Love and Lacorte,
Dorminey has been
impressed with the team's


hard work and dedication.
"This is the most exciting
team I've gotten to be a part
of," Dorminey said. "We
work them four days a week.
Hard work motivates them.
"In practice, a lot of times

before I can say something
to help someone if they're
not doing something right,
one of the other girls does it
first.
"The leadership is incred-
ible."
