City completes plans for


Ravenswood complex


By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST. LUCIE More
than four years after hurri-
canes heavily damaged the
Ravenswood community
center, plans are.being
finalized to rebuild it.
Those plans include a new
community center, fire
station and classrooms for
Indian River State College.
The city plans to spend
$6.5 million, largely from
impact fee revenues. The St.
Lucie County Fire District
estimates the new station
will cost about $1.4 million.
Assistant city manager


Jerry Bentrott said it's taken
so long to finalize the plans
,because of several factors.
Those involved working
with the IRSC Foundation,
which owned the land, to
deed it to the city and
obtaining grants.
City officials also had to
determine whether to
replace the original commu-
nity center or repair it.
With the building having
mold and other damage, as
well as the need to bring it
up to Americanswith
Disabilities Act standards, "it
didn't make any sense to put
money into that building,"
he said.

rally for


education

By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
ST. LUCIE COUNTY
- Hundreds of educa-
tors and residents are
expected to march and
rally for education Jan.
31, at a time when the
St. Lucie County School
District. is facing large
budget cuts.
"This is really a time
for the community to
come together and
stand up for what we
believe is important,"
said Vicki Rodriguez,
vice president of the St.
Lucie County Class-
room Teachers Associa-
tion.
The rally and march
will begin at '9:30 a.m.
outside the ,offices of
the St. Lucie County
School District, at the
former Orange Blossom
Mall.
Ms. Rodriguez said
marchers will head east
on Virginia Avenue, go
up 35th Street and
return to the starting
point.
She said she's expect-
ing a diverse crowd,
including educators,
church members, gov-
ernment leaders and
business owners.
It's to send a message
to legislators that peo-
ple want to maintain a
strong education sys-


tem, she said.
The rally comes not
long after the school
district absorbed more
than $15 million in
budget cuts. As a result,
administrators, teach-
ers and other employ-
ees agreed to no raises
to avoid layoffs.
"We see the issue as
bigger than job losses or
budgetary cuts," Ms.
Rodriguez said. "We see
the issue as economic
viability in the commu-
nity."
Ms. Rodriguez said
she's hoping partici-
pants will sign a letter to,
legislators supporting a
1-cent sales tax increase
for education.
The association will
deliver the letters to leg-
islators in Tallahassee.
Tim Bargeron, the
district's chief financial
officer, said he plans to
attend the rally and also
believes the sales tax
idea is good.
The problem is not
that the districts have
too much money, he
said.
"The problem is,
there is not enough rev-
enue to support the
programs."

Man accused of seeking a


child for sex though 'Net


By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST. LUCE-
Authorities have accused a
Port St. Lucie father of
offering to allow another
man to have sex with his
daughter, provided he
could do the same with the
man's daughter.
Gregory Vance White,
43, of 3419 S.W. Funtuna
St., Port St. Lucie, was
arrested Jan. 21 by the St.
Lucie County Sheriff's
Office and charged with
solicitation to commit
sexual battery on a child,
selling or buying a minor
into sex trafficking and
sexual performance with
a child.
Sheriff's Office officials
say the investigation is
continuing and more
charges may be filed.
The arrest occurred
several days after an
Internet sex crimes
investigator was contact-
ed on the Internet by


someone
using the




The


screen name told.the
investigator, who was
posing as a father with an
11-year-old daughter,
that his 3-year-old
daughter, who turned out
to be 2, was sexually
active and enjoyed it.
"The suspect wrote,
'You want to swap? Or
just watch me do yours?"
the arrest affidavit states.
Several times during
online conversations the
suspect insisted that
before they met-he be
able to view the other
supposed father on a Web
cam.
That way, Pe said, he
could be sure that the


other person was not a
law officer, the affidavit
said.
The suspect also said
that "the cam just shows
that we are who we are;
it's a safety thing. Once I
see you doing stuff to
yours and you see me
doing stuff to mine, then
everything's cool," the
affidavit states.
They talked on the
phone and an investiga-
tion showed that the
suspect's telephone
number belonged to Mr.,
White, investigators said.
Investigators obtained
a search warrant. After;
they entered the home
the man's wife asked him
about the situation.
The suspect replied,
"This is about me on the
Internet. It's all about my
fantasy," the affidavit
said.
The wife told investiga-
tors that her husband
likes young girls, the
affidavit said.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY-
The increase in foreclosures
is not only affecting home-
owners who can't pay their
mortgage payments.
It's also affecting property
owner associations that
depend on dues to provide
community maintenance.
An attorney presented
some advice to those
associations at a meeting
last week of the St. Lucie
County Property and
Homeowners Associations
Committee.


ASPIRIN AND TEETH
Q: I don't like to swallow pills. Is it okay to crush aspirin in my mouth and then
swallow it?
'A: Chewing aspirin is not a good idea. Studies have shown that people who chew aspirin
2overa long period can severely damage their teeth. Aspirin is undeniably an effective pain
,reliever. Some doctors also recommend that patients with heart problems take a daily low.
dose--81 milligrams-because it thins blood. But when use improperly aspirin can cause
harm in the mouth. You should never put aspirin directly on a gum or a sore in the mouth.
The acid in aspirin can burn the soft tissue in the mouth.
A study published in 2004 in the Journal of the American Dental Association found that people who chew
aspirin end up with heavy erosion of both the enamel and dentin, the bone-like material just under the
enamel. In one case a 52-year-old woman visited a facial pain center complaining of temporomandibular
joint pain. She had been without dental care for about 10 years. She said she'd been taking four to eight
aspirin a day for headaches. She crushed the aspirin in her mouth. All her teeth needed attention, but
researches found the teeth most frequently in contact with the aspirin had eroded the most. If you use aspirin
regularly, talk with your dentist about the proper way to use it.

Once a bank forecloses on a property, the.
financial institution can be held responsible for
up to six months of unpaid assessments,-
(attorney Chris Draper) said.


Some residents not
associated with homeown-
ers associations also sought
advice on how they can find
solutions to their foreclo-
sure woes.
Attorney Chris Draper said
associations must be
vigilant in collecting unpaid
dues and assessments.
. Once a bank forecloses on
a property, the financial
institution can be held
responsible for up to',six
months of unpaid assess-
ments, he said.
Any future assessments
while the bank.has title to .
the home are the responsi-
bility of the bank, he said.


87s-s~oo


One problem is that banks
are taking longer to fore-
close on properties, he said.
"They do have control
over how long they sit on
the foreclosure," he said.
One woman attending the
meeting said that she was
facing foreclosure and
asked for advice.
Mr. Draper said her first
step could be to "try and
restructure her mortgage.
You could ask for a principal
reduction."
Another way to delay the
foreclosure would be to file
for bankruptcy, which
would provide a six-month
window to possibly find a
solution, he said.
While filing for bankrupt-
cy hurts credit ratings,
foreclosures don't help
either, he said.
Another woman said she'
lost her job and wanted to


work with the bank, but
could never find anyone
who would talk with her.
Mr. Draper suggested
sending a certified letter.
Beth Ryder, the county's
director of community
development, said working
with a consumer credit
counseling company might
be a solution in some cases.
One woman said she was
told that was not a solution
because her income isn't
sufficient.
In some cases, Mr. Draper
said, people who know they
face inevitable foreclosure
should stop paying their
mortgage all together.
By doing that, he said,
they may have enough
money to put a down
payment on another piece
of property they can afford
once the foreclosure occurs.

are costing more than $3
billion statewide, he said,
yet Florida is not providing
the necessary funding. ,
"The rally is a good way to
get the community aware of',
the potential cuts for the:
2009-10 school year and
also,, have a conversation as
to why the revenue is not,
sufficient to support the
programs," Mr. Bargeron
said.
It will also send a message
to the Legislature, he added.
I "As a Floridian, I am tired
of what the Legislature is

Bargeron said.

Educators say standards



should be more uniform

'No Child Left Behind' should be reviewed, they add


By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
ST. LUCIE COUNTY St.
Lucie County education offi-
cials, and their counterparts
on the Treasure Coast, say
they favor review of academic
progress.
But the Obama administra-
tion should review some
aspects of the No Child Left
Behind Act, such as uniformi-
ty, they say. They talked about
the federal education act, after
former President George
Bush, before leaving office,,
called for the new administra-
tion to keep the legislation.
The act, which was
approved in 2002, sets stan-
dards in reading and mathe-
matics and requires that states
test students to determine the
progress toward meeting
those goals.
Schools that fail to meet the
standards face possible penal-
ties, including loss of funding.
Judi Miller, chairwoman of
the St. Lucie County School
Board, said there needs to be a
review of the act and how it is
working.
One problem is there "is not
a level playing field" from
state to state," she said, adding
that some have more rigorous
standards than others. .


Vicki Rodriguez, president of
the St. Lucie County Class-
room Teachers Association,
said she believes the problem
is that the act is more punitive
than supportive.
"Schools should be reward-
ed for progress, rather than
punished for failing to hit
some arbitrary percentage or
number," she said.
With a failure to adequate
fund the No Child Left Behind
Act, "you are really set up for
failure," Ms. Rodriguez said.
More money is needed to
meet the goals, she said, and it
doesn't make sense to take
dollars away from schools that
are failing, she added.
She said she also believes
Florida is more rigid in its'
requirements than other
states.
Martin County Superinten-
dent Nancy Kline also said she
believes the standards vary
from state to state.
"I'm a strong believer in
accountability," Ms. Kline
said. "However, there are sig-
nificant issues with the cur-
rent No Child Left Behind Act
that must be addressed in
order for NCLB to provide an
accurate reflection of how
schools are performing in
meeting the academic needs
of all children."


One of the main issues to be
addressed, she said, is lack of
consistent requirements for
reaching adequate yearly
progress, the accountability
measure of the act.
"Since each state submits its'
own adequate yearly progress
plan, some plans are less rig-
orous than others," she said.
"This disparity causes unfair
comparisons of the adequate
yearly progress results from
schools and districts in one
state to those of another
state," she said: "It also creates
an inequity in the costly sanc-
tions schools and districts face
for not making adequate year-
ly progress."
Indian River County Super-
intendent Harry La Cava also
favors a review to determine
what is working and what isn't.
He said some adjustments
may be needed and expressed
concerns about lack of uni-
form standards and academic
achievement targets that
change each year.
The program also should
include rewards where dis-
tricts are meeting the chal-
lenge, he said.
Mr. La ,Cava favors an
"incentive reward for teachers
in those classrooms trying to
do the job that needs to be
done."


Plans
From page A1
The fire station will
replace the existing
one on Prima Vista
Boulevard.
Catherine Chaney,
public information
office for the Fire
District, said the
existing station was
built in 1964, the third
station constructed in
St. Lucie County.
The first two
stations built in Fort
Pierce have since been
replaced, leaving the
Prima Vista station as
the oldest one in the
county.
One major problem
with the Prima Vista
station is its location.
Heavy traffic on
Prima Vista can
hamper immediate
response to fire and
rescue calls, she said.
The Fire District
also wants a larger
station. The existing
one which has 5,000-
square-feet will be
replaced by a facility
with 8,000 square feet,
she said.
That will provide
more space for the
bay area and living
quarters, Ms. Chaney
said.
Construction is
expected to begin in
February and be
completed by the end
of the year, Ms.
Chaney said.

Founders Branding Gala postponed


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
FORT PIERCE With the
current economic downturn
prompting low ticket sales,
organizers of United Way of
St. Lucie County's Founders
Branding Gala, scheduled
for Jan. 30, have decided to
postpone the annual event.
The gala will be resched-
uled for later in the year to
give more time to build sup-


port for the event and the
local programs that benefit
from its proceeds.
"We feel that postponing
this event is the fiscally
responsible thing to do,"
said United Way board
member Christie Briggs-
Goldson.
"The purpose of the gala
is to raise much-needed
funds for our partner pro-
grams. We would be doing a
disservice ,to -our partners


and the community by
holding an event that
wouldn't, be able to reach
our financial goals of sup-
port."
All current ticket reserva-
. tions willbe honored on the
new d4te for the event, which
will be announced as soon as
possible. The country west-
ern-themed gala will still be
held at the Port St. Lucie
Civic Center and feature live
music, dinner, must-have


auction items, casino gam-
ing and other fun activities.
United Way of St. Lucie
County is encouraging people
in the community to give to
tlhe annual campaign, help
spread the word about pro-
grams and services that help
people in need and volun-
teer their time and talent to
a local cause.

Negron
From page A1
Sen. Pruitt, who is not
seeking re-election in
2010, said Mr. Negron
"has a public servant's
heart" and has shown
the ability to lead and
get the job done..."
"Aileen (Mrs. Pruitt)
and I are giving Joe
Negron our enthusiastic
support," Sen. Pruitt
said.
Thus far, Mr. Negron is
the only announced
candidate seeking to
replace Sen. Pruitt.
District 28 includes all of
Martin County, most of
St. Lucie County, the
southern part of Indian
River County and parts
of Okeechobee and Palm
Beach counties.
Mr. Negron, a former
state representative who
served three terms from
2000-06, unsuccessfully
sought to replace former
U.S. Rep. Mark Foley
after he resigned his
office in 2006.
In an unexpected
twist, although Mr.
Negron was the candi-
date, Rep. Foley's name
remained on the ballot.
Former Rep. Tim
Mahoney defeated Mr.
Negron, but lost the seat
this past November,
after news of his marital
infidelity surfaced, to
political newcomer Tom
Rooney, R-Jupiter.
One of the reasons
Sen. Pruitt said he
supports Mr. Negron is
that he is not "one of
those flashy politician,"
Sen. Pruitt said.
Mr. Negron wanted to
hold the breakfast, as
well as others in the
future, with the main
purpose of meeting
people, instead of
raising money, Sen.
Pruitt said.
He said Mr. Negron
worked hard for the area
and was instrumental in
obtaining money for the
public safety complex at


Indian River County and
a facility for seniors in
Martin County.
And, as state represen-
tative, when the state
was receiving a lot of
revenue, Mr. Negron
worked to put some of it
in reserve with the
attitude that "just
because we have it, we
don't have to spend it
all."
"He just quietly and
methodically put that
money away in the
reserves for a rainy day,
and now it's now a rainy
day. He didn't geta lot
fanfare for that," Sen.
Pruitt said.
But that effort has left
Florida in a better
position than many
other states, he said.
Mr. Negron, who
works as an attorney in
West Palm Beach,
pledged that if elected,
St. Lucie County would
be important to him.
He said he would keep
a senate office in St.
Lucie County.
With the state facing
funding cuts, he said
that education from
kindergarten through
12th grade would be his
top priority.
SHe also stressed the
importance of the
business community in
maintaining the econo-
my.
Mr.'Negron said he
would continue efforts
to make the Treasure
Coast the Research
Coast by seeking to
bring in more research
companies.
He said he supports
equal opportunity for
all.
"I want my daughter
to have the same
opportunities as my two
boys," Mr. Negron said.
He said he is seeking
the position because he
cares about the commu-
nity and believes he can
* do an effective job
representing families
and businesses.
Should further budget
cuts be needed, he said,
he would look forx
programs that impact
the fewest people.
O:. ne examplethe-said,
is counseling programs;
which can'be handled by
the private sector.

Re: Make it safe for bikers

Please set the.,ecord straight: if you're on the road, ride in
the same direction as traffic. People are confused enough
about bicycles. The lawn Florida is: Roadway Position (Sec-
tion 316.2065, ES.)
"A bicyclist who is not traveling at the same speed of other
traffic must ride as close as practicable to the right hand curb
or edge of roadway. A bicyclist may leave the right-most por-
tion of the road in one of the following situations: when pass-
ing, making a left turn, to avoid hazards, or when a lane is too
narrow for a bicycle and a car to share it safely.. A bicyclist
operating on a one-way street with two or more traffic lanes
may ride as close to the left-hand edge of the roadway as
practicable. Riding in single file is required except on bike
paths or parts of roadways set aside for the exclusive use of
bicycles, or when two people riding side-by-side within one
lane will not impede traffic flow."
You must ride with the flow of traffic. There are parts of the
U.S., usually very rural, without cross streets, where they
require you to face traffic. Please check your local traffic laws.

Why drive foreign cars?

This is about the congressional hearing on the automakers.
They were criticized about using their private jets. But a lot of
senators, etc., drive foreign cars. Why do they drive foreign
cars on tax dollars? Why can't they drive American cars?

Inauguration too expensive

I'm seeing that the Inauguration was reported to be a very
expensive event. I thought that maybe the new president-
elect would just have a private ceremony for family and
friends and save all that money.

What happened to the birds and the bees

In answer to what happened to the birds and the bees: It's
the Floridians who are so ungrateful for the fresh air. That
have'to smoke and. use smoke pits. They have to spray for
green grass, And all of the cats are multiplying, so they kill.the;
cats. And the bees are dead because of all of the spraying. I
don't understand Floridians that are so ungrateful for every-
thing here.

SMoreoOn inauguration

The inauguration was such a waste of time and energy,

It's time to quit smoking


f you decided to give
up smoking this year,
but haven't gotten
around.to it, how about
making it a Valentine's gift
for a loved one, or for
yourself?
Perhaps you could do it
to honor someone you
love or to remember a
loved one. Maybe it would
be a wonderful Mother's
Day or Father's Day gift.
There's no time like right
now to think abdut
stopping.
The Web site
www.smokefree.gov, a
cooperative venture
between the Centers for
Disease Control and
National Cancer Institute,
have put together infor-
mation to get you. started
and keep you motivated.
They offer the START
program:
1. SET a quit date. Pick a
date within the next two
weeks, so that you have
time t6 get ready, but not
so much time that you put
it off. If you smoke at
work, choose a weekend
or day off so you'll be
smoke-free when ybu
return.
2. TELL friends, family


ALIVE
& WELL
SHELLEY KOPPEL


and co-workers. It's easier
to fight any battle with
support. Ask everyone to
be patient with mood
changes and ask smokers
to quit with you or not to
smoke around you. Tell
your doctor you are
quitting, as you may need
to adjust your medica-
tions, since nicotine and
other substances in
cigarettes' can affect
medications.
3. ANTICPATE and plan
for changes. Most people
who go back to smoking
do it within the first three
months. Set up a cravings
journal, putting down the
time and circumstances
when you craved or had a
cigarette. Note what you
were doing, whom you
were with and how you
were feeling. Plan how to
handle these situations in
the future. Expect that you
will have withdrawal
symptoms. Talk to your


doctor about whether
there are tools to help you
cope with withdrawal.
4.REMOVE cigarettes
and tobacco products
from the home, car and
workplace. Get rid of
things that remind you of
smoking and clean things
that smell of smoke. Don't
leave any cigarettes or
ashtrays around. Sham-
poo your car and get fresh,
flowers. As your sense .of
smell returns, you'll enjoy'
smelling something that
isn't smoke. Get rid of
lighters. Have the dentist
clean off the cigarette
stain's from your teeth and
see how nice they look.
5. TALK to your doctor
about getting help. While
many people quit smokr
ing by going.cold turkey, it
isn't the only way to do it.
There are prescription
and non-prescription
medicines and devices, as
well as support groups
and quit lines. You may.
want to join a quit-,
smoking program. In
Florida, the QuitLine is a
toll-free, telephone-based
tobacco cessation service.
Anyone in the state can,
use it by calling (877) 822-


06669.
The QuitLine offers
counseling services, elf-
help materials in Enigish
and Spanish, translation
services for other lan-
guages, assistance ini
understanding medicine
that'can help you stop.
No one is going to
pretend that giving up an
addiction to tobacco is
going to be easy. Every-
one is aware of the health
risks; if you're still smok-
ing, it's because you want
to or you can't stop.
If you want to stop,,
please, consider trying
and then trying again..
You miaynotsucceed.the
first time. .Try to learn
from what didn't work so
that the ext attempt will
be successful. There are 4
lot'of resources available'
to help you. Youi have to'
make the decision to
stop.

Going wireless the easy way


S ith the availability.
il\l of low-cost,
V Wireless routers,
more and more people are
jumping on the wireless
bandwagon.
If you just got a new
'wireless ready" laptop,,or
have more than one
Computer in the house that
you want to share your
Internet connection with, a
wireless router is just the
thing to get you started.
The wireless part of the
equation completely
removes the hassle of
having to be tethered to
your Internet connection.
With no physical con-
nection, you are free to
"surf the'net" from where-
ever you are most comfort-
able in your home. You can
.carry your laptop from the
kitchen to the living room
to the study No more
being glued to one place in
the house because that's
where the Internet connec-
tion is.
A wireless router solves
problems by creating a
wireless "hot spot" (a
"cloud" of Internet access
that any wireless enabled
computer can connect to).
It's just a matter of
plugging the router into
the cable or DSL modem,
following the router's setup
guide (usually a very easy
process) and voila, instant
wireless hot spot.
The next step is connect-
ing the other computers to


COMPUTE

SEAN MCCARTHY


the hot spot.
The easiest computer to
configure would be the
ddsktop machine, since it's
still (presumably) right.
next to the router. Simply
connect the network cable'
that was connected td the
cable or DSL modem into
one of the jacks on the
router and that machine
should be good to go. That
machine doesn't even have
to connect wirelessly,
because it's close enough
to plug in directly. It could
be connected wirelessly,
but since the first comput-
er is usually so close, it's
often easier to connect
directly than to do away
with that hard-wired
connection. It's the other
machines in the house that
can take advantage of the
wireless connectivity
offered by the.router.
Most new laptop com-
puters these days are
coming equipped with a
built in wireless card. That
means (after you set up
your wireless router) as
soon as you turn on your
wireless enabled laptop
within that wireless ,
"cloud," your computer
should pop up a little


window telling you that.
there is a wireless connec-
tion available ana .lo you
want to connect to it? Click
OK and off you go.
For machines that didn't
come equipped with built
in wireless, the solution is
adding an external wireless
card. They come in many
styles, but the easiest type,,
seems to be thelittle USB
wireless connectors. They
can plug into the USB port
on either a desktop
machine or the USB port
on any laptop.
Once the connector has
been set up according to
the installation instruc-
tions, then that machine
will automatically see the
wireless hotspot and ask
you if you want to connect.
Now, everyone in the
house can surf the 'net at
the same time, ahd there
isn't a wire that everyone is
dragging around the
house.
But is that all a wireless
router is good for, just
sharing the Internet?
I'm often surprised when
I go somewhere to help
with a system and find that
a house has a wireless
router set up with two or
three computers all
connected to the Internet
through it, but the users
are saving files to a floppy
disk, CD or thumb drive
and walk the file over to
the one machine that is
connected to a printer in


order to print their docu-
ment (this isPknown as
"sneaker net").
Many peopledon't
understand the full
potential of their wireless
router and completely
miss its ability to not only
distribute an Internet
connection to all the
machines in the house, but
to share printers and pass
files back and forth
between machines.
After making a few
adjustments to each
.machine, not only does
everyone get to use the
Internet at the same time,
but now you've got your-
self a nice, powerful local
area network.
Most people seem to
focus on the Internet
connection-sharing aspect
of the. wireless router. The
things that you can do with
several machines net-
worked together often
doesn't even get a second
thought, and people don't
even know the potential
they are sitting on.
So what kinds of things
can you do when your
machines are all connect-
ed by a router? Well, I think
I'll tackle that subject in
another column. Until
then, happy computing.

led to growing unemploy-
ment as increasing
numbers of businesses
fail on the Treasure Coast.
Since 1987, the air-
conditioning business
has served residents in
the tri-county area. It has
focused on offering
reliable service at prices
that beat or matched
competitors' offers.
Mr. Jardine said that
philosophy has played a
key role since he pur-
chased the operation in
2006.
"It's the reason we stay
in business. We take pride
in our work and we adjust
with the economy," he
said. "We're not 'ut to
retire off of any one
customer."
On one recent project,
a customer secured a
range of quotes from
service providers, with
estimates ranging from
$4,000 to more than
$10,000. Documentation
for Mr. Jardine shows that
Excel's quote was $3,800.


The partners say
they've maintained their
rates for the last two
years, despite rising
costs, so that customers
don't have to forego
heating or cooling,
because of prohibitive
pricing.
To do this without
cutting back on the level
of service they offer,
they've made small
changes elsewhere.
Purchasing a GPS
system, for instance,
helps drivers arrive at
each job site via the
quickest routes, saving
time and cutting fuel
-costs for the company.
"I can do six jobs in a

don't have to pass on any
costs to the customers,"
Mr. Arber said.

Ever look through a pair of field glasses

Optomaetist, Dr. Marc ay Gamnnon, is using

people who have lost vision from macular

"Some of my patients consider me the

specialist with offices in Ft. Lauderdale,
Boca Raton, West Palm Beach and Stuart.
"People don't know that there are
doctors who are very experienced in low

Macular Degeneration is the most
common eye, disease amongst the senior
population. As many as 25% of those
over 65 have some degree of degenera-
tion. The macula is one small part of the
entire retina, but it is the most sensitive
and give us sharp images. When it dege-
nerates, macular degeneration leaves a
blind spot right in the center of vision
making it impossible to recognize faces,
read a book, or pass the driver's vision test.

There are two types,

involves leaky blood

temporary fix since other
leaks usually occur.

Going back to a stop foRAVEL



Going back to a stop for more after a cruise


Many of our clients
who have returned
from cruises want
to book a tour or a hotel
stay to the areas they.have
visited. I did this after my
very first cruise (many
years ago) from NewYork to
Bermuda. We berthed for a
few days in Hamilton but
could not get enough,As
soon as we returned home,
my friends and I booked a
flight and resort stay for a
few months later. We
toured the entire island on
our next stay and met and
mingled with the locals. It


was great fun.
-Europe, especially the
Mediterranean, is becom-
ing increasingly popular in
this phenomenon. The
client might have flown
into Barcelona and boarded
a cruise ship for a seven- or
10-night cruise along the
Mediterranean coast, but
felt there was so much
more to see in each port
they visited.
When they visited Rome
via the poft of Civitivecchia
(approximately 45 minutes
away) they only had a few
hours to see this exciting,

helpful to.make a list of
what is a must see.
Tours can be so enlight-
ening, but some can be fast
paced. It would be impor-
tant to take into considera-
tion what your physical
abilities are.
If you are in need of a
walker or scooter to get
around, some of the old
cities would be extremely
difficult. In fact, most tour
companies do not allow
scooters. European busses
are just not big enough for
them. Walking over ancient
cobblestone streets can be
very difficult for those in
need of a walker. This is
important to know before
you pay for your travel
plans.
Each tour, whether it is
with a large group or
smaller, more intimate
group, generally has an
experienced tour director
who is full of information
on the historical aspects.
Others might have a local
expert come aboard to take
you through their towns
and countryside, all the
while speaking of the local
culture and lore.
Tour companies also


combine tours and cruises
where you will have the
constant company of the
tour director who meets
you at your starting point
and stays with you during
the cruise portion and all of
the tour. Certainly any
travel issues you might
have can be taken care of
by the tour director.
Northern Europe has the
added benefit of having
rivers to cruise along to see
the inner workings of the
great cities of Europe.
These rivers, just like the
Mississippi, have bustling
cities along the route. You
can plan a river cruise or
take a tour that includes
the river cruise along such
rivers as the Rhine, Seine
and the Danube. See the
changing cultures from
Germany to Switzerland,
Austria, Hungary, Croatia,
Romania and Bulgaria.
This is great for those
with physical issues. One
does not have to be con-
stantly on the move. When
you get to port, you can
choose to stay aboard or
venture out into the port
towns and villages. Many
include shore excursions.

Ocean cruising is one
way to see various coun-
tries, but of course, that is
only the tip of the iceberg
(so to speak). You can tap
into the varying cultures,
but touring is where you
feel the heartbeat of the
people and their everyday
lives.
In some places you may
never get enough. Hopeful-
ly, you will leave filled with
many memories of your
stay. If not, go back! Go
back for more of what you
really enjoyed.
If you enjoyed the
German beer hall, you may
want to go back and visit
during Oktoberfest that

stimulate club members',

vance of learning frac-
tions in order to cook a
meal, for example, or by

can enable enjoyment of
reading the newspaper,
volunteers help club
members learn to value,
the knowledge homework
can bring.
Power Hour's long-term
goals are to ensure that
youth graduate from high'
school, pursue postsec-
ondary educations and
become life-long learners.
In addition tcr home-
work helpers, Power Hour

with teachers and parents.


Power Hour also pro-
vides incentives for club
members, rewarding them
with "power points" and
charting their academic
progress on a colorful
poster that is displayed
prominently in the club.
S"This year's Power Hour
is planned to be packed
'with, tons and tons of
exciting new things," said
Jarvis Gillium of the Gar-
den Terrace Clubhouse in
Fort Pierce.
"For example, new book
clubs, better incentives"
such as Power Hour par-
ties, honor roll banquets
and ceremonies, club
bucks, and prizes for every
'A' or 'B' received on a test
or quiz.

children excited and

'Ethel Merman's Broadway'



brought to life at the Sunrise


By Shelley Koppel
Entertainment writer
FORT PIERCE When
singer and comedian Rita
McKenzie was asked to do
a show about the legendary
Ethel Merman, she was
lukewarm about the idea.
"I felt she wasloud and
brassy," Ms. McKenzie said.
"Broadway was a big thing,
but my favorite was Julie
Andrews."
Then she began to learn
about the star of "Annie Get
Your Gun," "Anything
Goes," "Call me Madam"-
and "Gypsy."
"As I got to know her, I
fell in love with her," Ms.
McKenzie said. "There was
only one Ethel Merman.
People said I reminded
them of her,
but I remind
them of her
spirit. I found
out she was shy
and a good mother
and daughter, It all
appealed to me."
Ms. McKenzie has been
doing the show for 20 years
and it remains a work in
progress.

STAR SCOPES
James Tucker
Week of 1-30-2009


Aries March 21-April 19
Aries the ram lives on the
higher slopes of life. This
giyes you a clear vision. You
can see further, ahead than
most. This gives an edge
when new opportunities
arise. Your natural competi-
tive spirit is always ready to
take on new challenges.
Decisive action always pro-
duces positive result when
you stay focused on your
dream.

Taurus April 20-May 20
Stay strong in your own
beliefs, but continue to listen
to trusted advisors as well.
Whenr you ask for advice
from a trusted friend you
honor them. This shows that.
you are coming from the
heart and not the ego. This
brings respect, encourage-
ment and hope. Your
courage in the face of adver-
sity is one of your strongest
assets.

Gemini May 21-June 21
Act decisively on your imme-
diate goals and plans. Your
inherent sense of responsi-
bility .will guide you as need-
ed. Keep a lighter approach.
When you get upset, it usual-
ly is caused by expecting oth-
ers to do things your way
and they don't. Face life's
challenges head on when
they happen. They are step-
ping stones toward yo0r-triue_-.
greatpess.

Cancer- June 22-July 22
Make it a point to do some-
thing nice for someone every
day. When yoi make some-
one else happy, the joy
comes back tenfold to you.
You were born with a great
heart. It is your destiny to do
this. Then, when you are psy-
ched up, use this extra ener-
gy to motivate you in your
own quest for happiness.
You were born for this quali-
ty of life.

Leo July 23-Aug. 22
Affirm every day that you are
fed and protected by the uni-
verse. Feeling thankful for
the many wonderful friends
who grace your personal and
professional life is what
brings you so much joy. You
see the good in others. They
see it in you. This is a won-
derful life and to be desired
above great riches. You have
found the true meaning of
life.

Scopes
From page B2
the old ways and a renewal
of your spirit. You are about
to shine in 2009. Just about
everything you try will work
out in positive ways. It is a
great blessing. Spirit loves
you and wants great happi-
ness for you in every way.
Feast and enjoy.

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21
There is much change, hap-
pening around you. Your job
is to stay calm and refuse to
let the world toss you around.
When you do this and
refuse to get upset you
have mastered life and are


now fully on the spiritual
path. When this happens the
universe will open the flood-
gates of abundance and bring
you riches beyond your great-
est dreams.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19
You have just come through a
time of recharging and focus.
You now have a wider view of
your course of action. This
edge, along with your natural
strong instincts, will always
result in positive outcomes.
Your victories outweigh your
losses. This makes you a win-
ner in the game of life. You
are very, very special.

Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18
You are at your best when
you set divinely-inspired


ideas into forward motion
and create exciting new reali-
ties. For this to happen you
must be focused on a cause
that makes you and others
happy. Don't worry about the
outcome. Keep inspiring
yourself and others, and the
end result will be more than
you ever dreamed possible.

Pisces Feb. 19-March 20
Continue to rise up from-
earthly restrictions and trans-
form yourself into the beauti-
ful, free-spirited creature you
truly are. Release any restric-
tive bonds of the past, open
your heart and soar like a
beautiful butterfly or eagle.
Refuse to accept mediocrity.
Stay close to your passion
and dreams. You are on your


way to super happiness.

Star visions

with the
Grammy Guru
ARLENE BORG -; "

Pancake mix, biscuit mix,
cake mix, etc. have expiration
dates just as all other foods.
They can develop mold,
which is toxic to some.
While reaching in my
pantry for a cake mix, I was
shocked to see I had seven
boxes of cake mix; I just can't
pass up the specials. My eye
caught the expiration date on
one; 2007, another 2008 and
if you can believe it, one was
2005.
Baking mixes can be used
for a few months after the


date, but years? Many times
things don't rise properly but
sometimes you're playing
with fire. Buy baking soda or
powder in the smallest con-
tainer available. Before you
know it, it has expired.
Dairy products can4ast for
days after the suggested date,
your nose knows. Cottage
cheese and sour cream can
last for months past the date
if they haven't been opened,
but once opened, use imme-
diately. Once a product is
frozen, the date doesn't
count.

Last frontier of human spirit.


he accepted belief in
America is that the
last frontier is in
outer space.
We have conquered the
mountains, the deserts
and the seas. Where do we
go from here?
I believe that outer
space exploration has
much value. The knowl-
edge gained has been
tremendous. But the price
that has been paid is
enormous as well, in
human life and money.
But I believe the true
last frontier still waiting
to be explored is the
universe within our
selves. When we live an,
inner directed life, then
out of our dreams, visions
and inspirations we begin
to create and manifest our
reality and true purpose.
The exploration of our
inner self and true destiny
is sorely underdeveloped
at this time in human
history.
My belief is that beyond
the sea, desert, sky and
outer space there is a far
greater unexplored inner
space that is the domain
of the human heart and
spirit. When we move
toward this vast frontier
of spirit we begin to get
glimpses of our true
nature and purpose.
There is an ancient
saying, "without a dream,
the people perish." What
is the real dream of every
living soul at birth? To live
a life of purpose, love,
peace, health and long
life; abundance, faith, joy,
creativity and freedom.
Living a life of war and
destruction sooner or
later will do us in. This is
anti-human. We are not
supposed to kill each
other through greed,


SPIRIT
GUIDE

anger and fear..What is
your dream?
We have it in us to
become the person we
want to be. Inside this
inner universe is a genius
crying to be set free.
Everyone has a true
purpose. Finding it and
setting it free should be
the number one priority
of every living soul.
There is always room to
grow when you search for
deeper meaning. No one
knows it all. How do we
make these changes?
It begins by looking
inside our hearts and
taking an inventory of the
things that make us happy
or unhappy and writing
these things down. Life is
based on the pleasure
principle, not pain. Then
begin to stop feeding the
painful ones and find
ways to release them.
Sometimes it begins
with forgiveness of our
-selves and others. The
main focus of life should
not be on money or land
or other property. These
are the effects of life not
the causes. The happiest
people are the ones .who
have a cause and purpose
living in their hearts that
helps others bridge the
gap between struggle and
freedom.
The main law is what
we sow, we reap back
multiplied. So in the
giving we receive. What is
your cause? Don't leave
home or live your life
without it. True happiness


depends on it. True riches
live within the heart and
soul. Bring them out, set
them free and let them
multiply.
Second, make a written
plan and commitment to
your dream. If the first
one doesn't work, make a
new one until you get it
right. Mother Earth gives
second chances.
The first thing we
should do when we wake
up each morning is show
gratitude arid thanks for
the gift of life itself. Then
help someone with a
greater need than your
own. This is the source of
true happiness. Refuse to
get stuck in the same old
rut. The universe within is
unlimited with ways to
serve. Step out in faith.
Become all you came here
to become.
It reminds me of the
story of the two men who
were fishing on the
riverbank. One man was
catching fish. When he
caught a small one he
kept it, but whenever he
caught a large one he
threw it back. This went
on for a while and the
other fisherman got
inquisitive. So he walked
down the bank and asked

and my low fat version.

FETTUCCINE
ALFREDO
Serves 4 to 6
Thanks to a chef I have
the recipe.. Not only did he
use almost half a stick of
butter for each serving,
along with the cream and
cheese, he also thickened it
with egg yolk.
Egg yolk is often used as a
thickening agent, but it is
tricky to work with. I do not
use egg yolk, not only
because it adds more fat
and cholesterol, but also
because I've found a little
cornstarch blended with
water or milk will accom-
plish the same thing with
much less effort.
1 package fettuccine
I pint (2 cups) heavy


cream or light cream
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 to 3/4-cup imported
Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper
1 level tablespoon
cornstarch (optional)
1/4-cup milk (optional)
Cook fettuccine according
to package directions,
* adding a little oil to the
water to prevent the noo-
dles from sticking together.
In a medium-size sauce
pan, melt butter. Add
cream. Raise heat to medi-
um high and cook until
cream reduces and
becomes the consistency of
lightly whipped cream. Add
cheese and season with salt
and pepper. Be sure to keep
the heat low to prevent
sticking.
If. you want a very thick
sauce, mix about 1/4-cup of
milk with cornstarch; heat
until thickened and add to
the cream mixture.
Drain fettuccine and
place in deep bowl. Top with
the sauce and enjoy. Be sure
to have -extra Parmesan
cheese available to be
passed around.
FETTUCCINE


ALFREDO
Low fat
Serves 4 to 6
1 package fettuccine
2 rounded tablespoons
butter substitute
1 cup fat-free sour cream
1 cup evaporated skim
milk, undiluted (or fat-
free half and half)
1/2 to 3/4-cup imported
Parmesan cheese
Cook fettuccine according
to package directions, follow-
ing instructions in recipe for
regular fettuccine Alfredo.
In medium-size saucepan,
melt butter substitute. Add
remaining ingredients, sea-
son with salt and pepper and
whisk until smooth.
Warm, do not boil.
Drain pasta and place in
deep bowl. Pour on sauce.
Serve with extra cheese.
PEACH MELBA (NIB)
Serves 2
This dessert was created at
the turn of the 19th century
by Chef Escoffier in honor of
opera singer Nellie Melba. It

Tips for a lush, green lawn


Editor's note: This column
originally appeared in the July
13,2007 issue.
or a homeowner, one of
the greatest thrills is to
have a lush, green lawn
all year long. Unfortunately,
during the winter months in
Florida, this can be a real
challenge.
In our area there are two
types of lawns that the
majority of Floridians share:
St. Augustine and Bahia. Most
people have the Floratam
variety of St. Augustine grass.
Before I get into winter
lawn maintenance, I would
like to talk a little about
Floratamn grass. The Floratam
variety of St. Augustine grass
was introduced to Florida in
1973 and is used almost
exclusively to other grasses.
Floratam grass has many
advantages to other types of
lawns. It is very adaptable
and can thrive in a wide range
of soils and environmental
conditions. It does well in
Florida's intense sunlight.
This type of lawn is also
relatively chinch bug resist-.
ant. This is a good point, since
many of the insecticides that
were effective for chinch bug
control such as Dursban and
Diazinon were removed from
the market.
Floratam is also a fast
grower that can fill in empty
areas of your lawn fairly
quickly. The thickness of the
lawn also helps to control
weeds.
Bahia grass, on the other
hand, offers some disadvan-
tages over its rival.
During the growing season,
it produces large seed heads
and'over time, the lawn can
thin out, which will allow


GARDEN
NOOK

weeds and other wild grasses
to take over. It also needs a
large amount of iron, or the
grass will yellow during the
spring and fall. It also has a
very course texture.
Now let's talk about
keeping it green. During the
winter months, all lawns can
have times when they thin
out or just do not grow as
rapidly as they do during the
remaining times of the year.
This can cause bare spots and
browning. This can be
especially problematic after a
freeze or heavy frost.
One way to ensure your
lawn stays green looking and
limits the intrusion of weeds
is to over seed with rye grass.
When you over seed with.
ryegrass, you help keep that
green look all winter long.
When the warmer weather
arrives, the ryegrass will dye
out and your lawn will again
fill in very nicely for the
remainder of the growing
season. As the ryegrass dies
off, it acts as a natural
fertilizer as it decomposes in
the soil.-
If you have aBahia lawn,
, you may have to over seed
with Bahia grass seed in the
spring. If you have a Floratam
lawn, you can fill in patches
with grass plugs. Remember,
Floratam is not available in
seed form.
Proper watering and
fertilizer is also essentialto a
healthy lawn. Always keep
your lawn evenlymoist.


Under watering as well as
over-watering can both cause
problems, such as drying out
or fungus, for example.
A regular fertilizer program
is essential for a lush green
lawn. You should apply a
good quality, slow release
lawn food about once every
three months. February is an
excellent time to apply a good
quality weed and feed. A
weed and feed product has
the advantage of both feeding
your lawn and getting rid of
annoying weeds. Care should
be exercised when choosing
weed control products
because you can only use
certain herbicides on certain
lawns.
If you have a Floratam
lawn, be sure you choose a
product that contains
Atrazine. This is a safe
herbicide for use in St.
Augustine variety grasses. If
you have Bahia grass, choose
a product with 2.4D or an
equivalent. Use of the wrong
herbicide can have very
undesirable effects.
Always apply your fertilizer
according to the package
directions and always use a
spreader. Never try to apply
lawn food by hand.
With a little care and some
work, you too can have a
green lawn year-round. I
hope this information useful
as well as informative.

After his big win back in
November, Congressman
Tom Rooney is hoping his
team, the Pittsburgh Steel-
ers, does the same this Sun-
day in the.Super Bowl.
"Arizona's defense is no
where near Baltimore's,"
Rep.' Rooney said. "Arizona's
offense is very good. (Quar-
terback) Kurt Warner has
been there before. He's not
easily fazed. (Running back
Tim) Hightower looked pret-
ty good (against Philadel-
phia).
"They're (Arizona) sup-
posed to be a team of des-
tiny. We have to make sure
we're the party crashers."
Rep. Rooney, who was
elected to represent Florida's
16th Congressional District
in the U.S House of Repre-
sentatives last Nov. 4, has
done his share of celebrating
on arguably the most hol-
lowed days on the sports cal-
endar, Super Bowl Sunday.
His father and four uncles
own the Steelers, while
Rooney's grandfather, Art
Rooney Sr., was the found-
ing owner.
"He was a great man,"
Rooney said-of his grandfa-
ther.
"He was very humble. You
don't get where he was in life
without being self-disci-
plined."
"I was 18 when he died. I
miss him very much."
Under Art Sr.'s leadership,
the Steelers became the
benchmark for the NFL in
the 1970s. Led by its vaunted
Steel Curtain defense and
unflappable quarterback
Terry Bradshaw, Pittsburgh
won four Super Bowls in six
years in the decade.
No other team has yet to
duplicate the feat.
Rep. Rooney got to revel in
some of the glory, attending

nan hopes


Tom Rooney
Super Bowl XIII in Miami
where rthe Steelers nipped
the Cowboys 35-31. Pitts-
burgh made it two in the row
with its win the following
season over the Los Angeles
Rams, again with Rooney in
the crowd.
"I didn't really appreciate
it until I got older," Rooney
said."In the 1980s, the team
wasn't very good arid you
didn't know when the
opportunity to go to the
Super Bowl was going to
come again."
Pittsburgh's next trip came
after the 1995 season under
coach Bill Cowher. Although
the team lost Super -B'owl
XXX to the Cowboys, that
version of the Steelers is the
one the Rep. Rooney touts as
his favorite.
"I was 25 years old and
more in tune with what was
going on," Rooney said.
"Greg Lloyd was my favorite
player. He epitomized the


Steeler defense.".
.Pittsburgh finally reached
the mountaintop again 10
years later in 2005, finally
capturing championship.
No. 5 with a win over the
Seattle Seahawks.
Ben Roethlisberger was at
the helm of that team and he
will be the quarterback this
Sunday.
"Terry Bradshaw is still the
best ever," Rooney said.
"Roethlisberger is slowly
getting there."

New golf equipment heading this way


It's the most wonderful
time of the year! The
moment that we writers
wait for all year long is upon
us. Yes, I know it's only
January, but I've been
waiting since this past
January.
While you're enjoying that
steaming cup of coffee this
morning, I am off in Orlan-
do toiling away at the 2009
PGA Merchandise Show. As
you relax in the comfort of
your own home, or the 19th
hole after a pleasant round,
I am working. Yes, I said
working.
I'm marching up and
down aisles of golf equip- ,
ment, accessories, balls,
apparel aQd much, much.
more. I'm hitting and testing
all kinds of clubs and trying
out teaching aides in a tiring
effort to find the best of
these items and report my
findings to you.
Held in the Orange


County Convention Center
each January, the merchan-
dise show takes up every
square inch of the center's 1
million-plus square feet of
floor space. More than 10
miles of carpet are laid out
to form the aisles between
exhibitors.
This, with the economy in
its current state, could be a
tad lean. Usually I have
invites from several manu-
facturers to come to parties
and dinners or media
outings. This year, I'm still
waiting.
Fortunately, Tour Edge is
again kicking off the week
with a multi-media golf day.
For the past several years,
my friends at Tour Edge
have held a golf outing and
demo day the day before the.
show starts. It allows us to
play a little golf, test out
some great equipment,
enjoy some fine food and
drink and set a wonderful

mood for the rest of the
week. It's always been a
great way to kick things off.
Last year's big news was
adjustability. Several
companies introduced
drivers that allowed golfers
to switch out shafts in an
effort to find the perfect one
or adjust for conditions
before play. I don't think it
came close to catching on,
mostly thanks to the steep
initial cost.
One item that seems to be
getting some early hype this
year has been GPS. There
are now several companies
that have a line of hand-
held units that use global
positioning satellites to give
golfers accurate yardages to
an assortment of targets on
the course.
Ping returns after a long
hiatus to celebrate its 50th
birthday at the show. The
company will introduce
several new 50th anniver-
sary-themed products,
including a new putter that

copies the original Al that
started the company.
While Taylor Made will
not be on the show floor,
they are planning a cocktail
party across the street and
will unveil the 2009 lineup
to us there.
With regard to apparel,
the use of moisture wicking
materials and breathable
fabrics will continue to
dominate. The best news for
us is that the technology has
become less expensive to
use and more available,
making these items more
affordable. The hot fabric
this year looks to be made of
coconut or bamboo.
Golf bags are becoming
lighter and easier to carry
than ever before. For those
wishing to walk without
carrying, an entirely new
generation of pull and push
carts is here.
For those who wish to
play in the rain, there are
even completely waterproof
bags this year.
What could be most
interesting is seeing just
how many of the smaller
companies are exhibiting or
even still around. With
times as tough as they are,
the little guys tend to get
hurt the fastest. I hope that
many of the friends I have


made over the years are
here this week.
Every year I find many
items that our local shops or
golfers would miss if not for
my tireless efforts. I consid-
er it my calling and duty to
find those and report back
to you.
Please, hold the applause.
There is no need to thank
me. I do all of this because
of the deep love in my heart
for our game. Sometimes,
one must make sacrifices
for the good of the sport and
the needs of his fans. Stay
tuned over the next few
weeks as I fill you in on all
the latest and greatest for
2009.
Now if you'll excuse me, I
really must to get back to
work. Dang, my cigar went
out!,Where did I set my ice-
cold beer? Hey, who turned
down the thermostat on the
hot tub? Is it just me, or is
the picture on that 50-inch
television a little too sharp?

Blues are


abundant
Did I say blue fish?
They are every-
where; from the
bridges, surf and flats.
Surf anglers talked about
whiting and pompano, but
it was the blues that kept
the rods bent.
From early to late on cut
mullet and spoons, it was
one cast, one fish. There
were so many, anglers were
removing the barbs from
the hooks so the fish could
get off. Long cast and short,
they were everywhere.
The pompano were there
if the blue fish did not get
the bait first.
I heard about and saw
some nice catches of
pompanos, but the catch
times and locations were
short and fast;
Look for the sand fleas
on the edge. Where there is
food, there will be fish and
sand fleas are favored for
the pompano. The blue fish
were in the 2-to 4-pound
class. Anglers reported
catches of two at a time.
Offshore, north of the
inlet, in 80 to 100 feet of
water, was lots of dolphin.
There were lots of small
dolphin, but there were
plenty of good size fish,
also. One could sort
through the small and
larger fish. There's no
excuse for taldng those
small fish:
Anglers looking for live
baits in the 30-foot zone
should spend a few more
minutes and have a pitch
rod ready. There's still
plenty of cobia in the area.
Spanish mackerels are
thick south of the inlet. You
might want to freeze a few;
they do make excellent cut
bait for bottom fishing.
Now that trout season is
open, we have had good

Super
From page BI I
Taking place in Tampa,
Super Bowl XLIII will
match up one of the
National Football Leagufe's
most explosive offenses
against one of its stingiest
defense's. Heading into the
NFC Championship game,
Warner who tasted
Super Bowl success with
the St. Louis Rams had
tossed 401 completions for
a staggering 4,583 yards.
The recipients of most of
those passes; Larry Fitzger-
ald, Anquan Boldin and
Steve Breaston, each
gained more than 1,000
yards each with Fitzgerald
and Boldin accounting for
23 of Warner's 30 touch-
down passes.
On the ground, the Car-
dinals weren't too shabby
either as Edgerrin James
and Hightower combined
for a shade under 1,000
yards.
Each played a role in the
win over the Eagles, espe-
cially Warner and Fitzger-
ald who hooked up for
three first-half touchdown
passes and Hightower who
scampered for an. 8-yard
touchdown with 2:53 left in
regulation to send Arizona
to its first Super Bowl.
Pittsburgh's trademark
defense was on display
against the Baltimore
Ravens in the AFC title
game, as the Steelers
harassed Ravens rookie Joe
Flacco all day long, forcing
him to throw three inter-
ceptions. The most damag-
ing of which was to Troy
Polamalu who returned it
40 yards for a touchdown
to seal the 23-14 win.
"We got into Flacco's
head," Rooney said. "We
threw everything but the
kitchen sink at him."
Rep. Rooney, who will be
in Tampa, knows the Steel-
ers must get the same kind
of pressure on Warner to
get a similar result.
"I fully understand what
a great opportunity this is,"
Rooney said. "No other
team has won six Super
Bowls."
