ST. LUCIE COUNTY-
For Stacey Malinowski,
who works with Mustard
Seed Ministries, hearing
medical horror stories
isn't a rare occurrence.
In one case, she said, a
pastor lost his health
insurance when the
church could no longer
afford to provide it.
Then, she said, the pas-
tor discovered he needed
a biopsy, but it took
weeks to find a way to get
it done.
A mother almost lost
her home helping her


daughter who had can-
cer, but was uninsured,
she said.
And those are just two
of many cases that have
promptedMs. M alinws-
ki, of Mustard Seed,
which assists the poor,
and many other commu-
nity organizations, to
help work on opening a
clinic for the uninsured.
"More people are com-
ing to the door every
day," needing help, she
said.
Ms. Malinowski said
she's found that in many
cases, "people are getting

Coast in June /
By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
TREASURE COAST Thousands of fire-
fighters and law enforcement officers from
all over the state are expected to show up
in June in Indian River, Martin and St.
Lucie counties.
But they won't be on the Treasure Coast
to fight fires or.make arrests.
They'll be playing basketball, catching
fish, running, throwing horseshoes and
swimming, among other things, as part of
the Florida Police and Fire Games.
Organizers of the event, to be held June
21-27,'expect attendance to top 5,000 and
have a $6 million impact on the economy.
They and their families will eat at restau-


raniis,
stay at motels and shop
at retail outlets throughout the three-
county area.
The games also will be held on the Trea-
sure Coast in 2010.
Since 1985, when the games began being
held under the same directorship, this is
the second time the Treasure Coast was
selected as the venue. The event was last
held on the Treasure Coast during 2003-04.
Tom Colucci, executive director of the
Treasure Coast Sports Commission, said

Superintendent was of possiblelayoffs

Legislative delegates listen to area professionals


By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
ST. LUCIE COUNTY St.
,Lucie County Schools Superin-
tendent', f~chael Lanno'n
voiced concerns to legislators
last week that the district may
be heading toward laying off
employees.
"If we have to start having to
lay off in large numbers, it will
add to the pain of the.citizen-
ry," he said.
Mr. Lannon was one of many
speakers who appeared during
a meeting, of the St. Lucie
County legislative delegation
on Jan. 27 at Indian River State
College.
Several of the speakers
joined Mr. Lannon in voicing
concerns about state budget
cuts.
Mr. Lannon said the district
could face a loss of $50 million
in three years. That's including,
in effect, the $30 million it will
cost to bring the district into
compliance with classroom
size amendment approved by
Florida voters.
"It's millions of dollars we
*don't have," Mr. Lannon said.


Mr. Lannon
said district lay-
offs would
affect the local.
economy, espe-
cially since the
St. Lucie County
School District,
with 5,000
employees, is
the largest Lannon
employer on the
Treasure Coast.
As one possible solution, he
asked legislators to remove
restrictions on state funds
coming to the district. That
would allow more flexibility to
meet priorities, he said.
One portion of state funds,
he said, might be restricted to
being used to buy pens, but the
problem is, "I need teachers. I
don't need those pens," he
added.
Legislators didn't respond on
the flexibility question, but
State Sen. Ken Pruitt, R-Port St.
Lucie, said they can do virtual-
ly nothing about the classroom
size amendment.
An attempt failed two years
ago to have another ballot


amendment repealing the class
size requirements, he said.
In view of all this, Sen. Pruitt
said; people should be careful
about approving amendments
- no matter how good the pur-
pose without considering
the costs involved.
"The revenue pie is only so
large," he said.
Also concerned about the
shrinking state budget was
Sylvie Kramer, head of Healthy
Families in St. Lucie County.
The program, which among
other things, helps mothers
with prenatal assistance, faces
a possible 22 percent budget
cut, Ms. Kramer said.
She said she believes Healthy
Family and related programs
have reduced the number of
pregnant teenagers, as well as
infant mortality.
Those efforts could be
endangered with large funding
cuts and programs may be shut
down in some areas of the
state, Ms. Kramer said.
Some appearing before the
delegation want changes in the
law. Regarding background

Budget cuts


challenging


school sports


programs
By John MaCDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com
More often than not, the accom-
plishments of high school athletes
are the last to be recognized, relegat-
ed to the back pages of a newspaper
or end of a television broadcast.
Conversely, it is those game ath-
letes who are first to stiffer when
budget cuts are announced. Despite
the profound benefits that sports
provide, many schools are being
forced to slash the number of games
teams play or eliminate them com-
pletely, among other cost-cutting
measures,
"We do know of a few counties that
have cancelled junior varsity and
freshman sports,"said Cristina
Alvarez, Florida High School Athletic
Association spokeswoman. "We are
aware of it and are trying to do things
to alleviate the problem."
One school that has been hit the
hardest is Port St. Lucie High. Athlet-
ic director Danny Ninestine has seen
the basic budget allocation for ath-
letics dwindle during his tenure ard
he has had to adjust accordingly.
"We cut freshman baseball, basket-
ball, football and soccer four or five
years ago," Ninestine said. "We've
also gotten rid of other junior varsity
sports.
"Soon we won't be able to com-
pete."
Since all the high schools on the
Treasure Coast play each other in
one sport or another, for the games
that still remain on the schedule,
transporting the student-athletes is
also an issue.
While the recent reduction in gas
prices has eased concerns a little,
costs can quickly add up. As a result,
each county has seen its schools take
measures accordingly.
In St. Lucie County, traveling out-
side a 75-mile radius by schools -
excluding district games must be
paid for through fundraising or stu-
dent fees.
Courtesy activity buses in St. Lucie
County were eliminated, just as they
were at Sebastian River High, for its
winter and spring sports.
"It might be difficult for parents to
pick up their kids," St. Lucie County
athletic director Jay Stewart said
after the initial cuts were announced.
"Then they don't participate as
much."
In Martin County, schools were

ROBOTS FOR DENTAL TRAINING

Q: Is it true that dentists may soon train on robots that can say "Ouch?"
A: It is indeed true. at a major robotics convention last November in Tokyo, Japan showed off a
number of advanced models,, including a humanoid robot fitted with a mouthful of replica teeth
for dentistry students to work on. "Ow, that hurt!" a female robot complained after a young dentist
drilled tooclose to robotic "nerve". When the dentist eased off, the robot said, "Now, I'm OK."
Dentistry, like all fields of human endeavor, continues to incorporate cutting-edge technology and
knowledge into its practice. The Japanese robot even has a name: Simroid, for "Simulator Humanoid." Simroid has a
realistic looking face, with eyes, nose and mouth. Sensors are embedded in the teeth to resemble nerves, triggering the
"ouch" reflex when a student is inaccurate or heavy-handed. Simroid is the result of collaboration between the doctors
at Nippon Dental University in Tokyo and technicians at Kokoro Company.
Simroid is still undergoing refinement. Planned next is a function that will let students inject anesthetic into robotic I
gums. Dentists around the world are working on techniques and tools that will make dentistry and even more ;
effective discipline in the future.

Identity theft case


highlights need for precautions


By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com

ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
The arrests of two women
suspected of stealing the
identities of more than 300
people should make peo-
ple more vigilant, St. Lucie
County Sheriff Ken Mas-
cara said last week.
Tychell Letrein Robin-
son, 33, of 8206 Deland
Ave., Fort Pierce and
Patrice V. Johnson, 26, of
1514 Cortez Blvd., Fort
Pierce, were arrested Jan.
26 and charged with crimi-.
nal use of personal identi-
fication.
The arrests followed
investigations into numer-
ous complaints of identity
theft, Sheriff Mascara said.
His office has seen
increasing numbers of
identity thefts each year,
he said.
"It's the fastest increas-
ing crime in America and I
would assume, with the
economy the way it is, it's

said.
Sheriff Mascara said
investigators believe the
women met while working
at Liberty Medical.
Ms. Robinson, who has a
long history of committing
property crimes, is
believed to have provided
information to Ms. John-
son on how to conduct the
thefts.
Basically, he said, they
would collect names and
birth dates and would use
them to obtain money.

Authorities suspect that
Ms. Robinson bought a lot
of the names and birth
dates.
"It was well known on
the streets that if you pro-
vided them with a name
and a birth date, they
would give you $50, he
said.
Ms. Robinson may have
also used information
from customers of her
cleaning business, he said.
The Sheriff's Office is
hoping that any of her cus-
tomers who feel they may
be victims to contact
them, he said.
In many cases, he said,
the pair would use 'the
information on a payday
loan site.
Authorities believe they
would go on the site, put
in the victim's name and
date of birth and receive a
pay advance, he said.

Hundreds rally


to demand


adequate


funding for


education

By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
ST. LUCIE COUNTY- .More than 1,000
people rallied and marched on a chilly Satur-
day morning, demanding adequate funding
for education.
They carried signs with such messages
"Make our schools a priority cut schools
last" and "Cut drugs, not schools."
Even a small dog wore a sign, saying: "Cut-
ting education -(would be) a dog gone
shame."
Attending the rally were teachers, commu-
nityleaders, school officials, parents and stu-
Sdents, many of whom were particularly con-
cerned about athletic cuts.
Vicki Rodriguez, vice president of the St.
Lucie Classroom Teachers Association, said
the turnout showed that education is a top
priority in the community.
"This is not the end," she said of the rally,
"it's the means to the end."
Vanessa Tillman, president of the associa-
tion, said the state should not spend more
money on prisons than education.
Instead, she said, the focus must be on
educating students so they don't end up in
prison.
"We must protect our future generation by
putting our kids and education first," she
said.
Clara Cook; secretary-treasurer, of the
Florida Education Association, said St. Lucie

PRECIOUS METALS
SWINDLES
A major gold scheme occurred in
the late 1970's during an economic
recession. Two brothers ran a pre-
cious metals brokerage business
down South. They published nice
brochures and pamphlets advertis-
ing their metals investments, and
hired telemarketers to advance their
business. This idea made so much
sense that 25,000. investors pur-
chased, metals through the compa-
ny. The gold merchants made it
easy to buy the metals and protect
the investment. For instance, if you
wanted to buy $10,000 worth of gold
bullion you called the company and
placed your order. The broker prom-
ised to buy the metals for you and
also had a great idea tohelp you out
with the safekeeping of your
gold...they would keep it in their
company vault and you wouldn't
have to worry about the safety of
your gold. They sent you a certifi-
cate of ownership for you to have
until you were ready to sell you gold
back to the open market. A few
years passed and the stock market
started rising and it was time to sell
gold .and reinvest in the stock mar-
ket. The telephones started ringing
and then the investigation started. It
was concluded that the company
was fraudulent and the investors
lost $140 million, With gold and sil-
ver prices rising the market is ripe
for rip-offs. Be leery of promises
that you can buy below the current
market. Take possession of your
precious metals or be certain that
they are stored in a reputable place
in your name. Visit the location!
Know who you are doing business
with and that they have a solid rep-
utation. With.your local dealer you
can take possession.of your metals
immediately. Don't fall for high pres-
sure sales tactics, especially from
boiler room sales reps. If you do

used the information on
a bank site, Sheriff Mas-
cara said.
One bank offered a
$100 debit card to people
who signed up for an
account online, he said.
Authorities believe
they would sign up for
many accounts using dif-
ferent names and dates
of birth, he said. A Social
Security number was not
required.
. Not only is it believed
they received multiple
debit cards, but it is also


suspected they wrote bad
checks on the accounts,
he said.
To reduce the chances
of identity compromise,
the Sheriff's Office pro-
vides the following
advice on its Web site:
*Avoid using personal
identification informa-
tion as codes or pass-
words.
*Never give personal
information on the tele-
phone unless you have
initiated the contact or
know the person request-
ing it.
*Keep items with per-
sonal information in a

sicker and sicker until they
are critically ill and then
going to the emergency

To help prevent that situ-
ation, the coalition, called
the St. Lucie Health Access
Network, hopes to open a
clinic by the end of the year,
said Larry Lee, director of
the St. Lucie County Health
Department.
St. Lucie County has
agreed to provide space in a
former Sam's building on
U.S. 1.
Mr. Lee said people under
age 18 and those older than
64 have access to health
care.
The clinic is aimed at fill-
ing in the gaps, he said.
Lawnwood Regional
Medical Center and Heart
Institute and St. Lucie Med-
ical Center are major sup-
porters of the effort.
Bob Dunwoody, chief
financial officer for Lawn-
wood, said many people.
who are uninsured end up
in the emergency room.
Oftentimes, they have
problems that could have
been avoided, had they
received care earlier, he
said.
As a result of a large num-
ber of people who are unin-
sured, he said, Lawnwood's
emergency room is
extremely busy and people
have to wait.

"Reliable, Compassionate,


About 28 percent of emer-
gency room patients in 2008
were uninsured, Mr. Dun-
woody said.
The amount of bad debt
, the hospital sustains has
increased from $24 million
in 1998 to $100 million in
2008, he said.
The clinic will provide
"care in advance, so they
don't get to a point of being
extremely ill," he said.
Those with diabetes can
especially benefit, Mr. Lee
said.
If they receive needed
care earlier, they may not
face losing limbs or other
problems, he said.
Those with high blood
pressure could receive treat-
ment that would prevent
them from having strokes,
he said.
"The entire community is
better off if people are taken
care of upfront, instead of
letting it go until things get
bad," Mr. Lee said.
Mr. Dunwoody said he
hopes the hospital can pro-
vide lab work and radiology
services.
Additionally, he said, the
hospital may be able to pro-
vide some used equipment.
The network hopes to
raise the money to hire a
physician for the clinic, Mr.
Lee said.
But members also are
working with the Medical
Society of St. Lucie and
Okeechobee counties with
the hope that doctors, both
primary care and special-
ists, will volunteer time.
They are also working
with the nursing depart-
ments at Indian River State
College and Florida Atlantic
University.
The aim is to have the
clinic open for some
evening and weekend hours
Sto increase access for work-
ing people who would lose
Money if they had to take
time offwork, he said.
Plans also call for the clin-
ic to provide information on
other programs that may
help patients.
Others involved in the
network include the Ale-
gany Franciscan Mipistries,
Florida Community Health
'Centers, th6 Salvation Army,
St. Lucie County, St. Lucie
Public Health, Dr. James
Roberts and the UnitedWay.
One advantage of having
such a network is that the
clinic is not dependent on
the financial situation of
one member, Mr. Lee said.

Just because you have macular dege-
neration or other eye diseases like
diabetic retinopathy doesn't mean
you must give up driving.
Ever look through a pair of field glasses
or binoculars? Things look bigger and
closer, and much easier to see. Florida
Optomethist Dr Marc Jay Gamon, is using
miniatuized binoculars or telescopes to help
people who have lost vision from macular
degeneration or other eye conditions.
"Some ofmypatients consider me the
last stop for people who have vision
loss", said Dr. Gannon, a low vision
specialist with offices in Ft. Lauderdale,
Boca Raton, West Palm Beach and Stuart.
"People don't know that their are
doctors who are very cxprienced in low
vision chre". Dr. Gannon is a panel
member of the Florida Division of Blind
Services and the Intenational Society for
Low Vision Research and Rehabilitation.
Dr. Gannon is the founder and director of
the Low Vision Institute and the American


Patient Norma Gddstein demonstrating
telescopic glasses for driving


Foundation of Low Vision Rehabilitation.
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.
The experts do not know what causes


macular degeneration. But it
is known that UV light from
the sun is a major con-
tributing factor Other factors
are smoking, aging of
course, and improper nutri-
tion. In 15 to 20% of the
time is genetic.
There are two types,
wet and dry. The wet type
involves leaky blood
vessels and can be lasered
shut. Unfortunately, it's a
temporary fix since other
leaks usually occur.
S "Our job is to figure out
everything and anything
possible to keep a person
functioningg, says Dr. Gannon
Even if it's driving.
Donald Paquette, 72, a former county
sor from Anaheim, Califonia was seen
November. "I could not read the street
soon enough when driving and I couldn't
mysaxophone music anymore".
The Doctor fit him with bioptic
cope glasses. "Amazing!" says Do-
S"I can read the street signs twice as
as I did before. I can play my sax
i. Happy dayl"
Dr. Gannon also provides special
oscope reading glasses to make the
paper print much easier to read.


Dorothy Weston, 80, from Broward
County, Florida was unable to perfonn
her job as a bookkeeper before visiting
Dr: Gannon. She received a pair of spe-
cial tele-microscope glasses for reading
her spreadsheets. "I am thrilled to be able
to keep working", said Dorothy.
"A while back I worked with a world
class tournament bridge player who could
no longer see the cards in her hand or on
.the table" said Dr. Gannon. "I designed a
special split tele-mnicroscope system for her
designed to function like a bifocal". "The
top part allowed her to see the cards on the
table and the bottom was for her hand".
Telescopic glasses usually cost over
$2000, says Dr. Gannon, especially if we
build them with an automatic sunglass.
Ellen Imboden traveled from Sweden
and was helped with two pairs of glasses:
special $475 prismatic glasses, that let
her read newsprint, as well as bioptic
telescopes to continue driving in Sweden.
Low vision devices are not always
expensive. Some reading glasses cost as little
as $475 and some magnifiers $100. Every
case is different because people have
different levels ofvision and different desires.
Dr. Gannon can be reached toll free at
1-866-942-2020. You can visit Dr. Gannon
at www.LowVisionlnstitute.com.
Free seminars for senior centers and
retirement facilities are also available.

Three questions for President Obama

*Why, despite all of the governmental propaganda, is there
no assistance available locallyto help single mothers with
scholarships, grants and opportunities for online continuing
education and housing costs?
Except Pell grants, there is lack of health and dental
options for single mothers, lack of utility expenses assistance,
lack of public transportation and very poor quality of "self-
sufficiency" standards.
SWhy is there a lack of accountability with the department
of revenue in child support enforcement? Companies are
allowed to harbor "dead-beat dads" and there are poor stan-
dards of legal remedies to the custodial parent. (For instance,
holding the local department of revenue accountable for lack
of enforcement of support orders,, civil penalties for compa-
nies that fail to abide by income deduction orders and higher
criminal penalties for dads who do not pay during times of
"emergency," such as critical 'illness, natural disaster or for
higher education and health insurance).
What in our society is perpetuating this notion that chil-
dren are dispensable and that fathers can just walk away?
Do they misguidedlyy) believe the government will take
care of the children for them? At least in other countries,
fathers know that their children will starve, hence; if they
abandoned them, they will forever, be tormented by the

Letters to


the editor

Don't make kids pay for education cuts

To the editor:

Parents, community members and anyone who has kids
*flutr schools and colleges need 0o read this..,
We have to speak for our children.
It has been estimated that our Tallahassee politicians are
going to cut another $1.9 billion from Florida schools, and-a
total of $33 million from St. Lucie County schools alone.
From 2007 to the beginning of January 2009, Tallahassee
has already cut almost $24 million from our St. Lucie Coun-
ty schools.
Have any of you thought about how this will affect our
kids and the state of Florida?
Sports programs at all levels could be cut. We could lose
counselors, teachers, librarians, nurses, non-constructional
personnel, SRO officers and Bright Futures Scholarships. It's
frightening that any type of program or job isn't excluded
from being cut at this point. This could cause even more
unemployment and foreclosures.
Oh, what about all that lottery money for the schools? Our
lottery money gets handed over on one budget line and
taken away on the next fine.
Without theshighest quality programs, services' and pro-
fessionals to deliver education to our Florida youth, there
will be no economic development .Kids cannot grow up to
be leaders without a quality education. Don't let legislature
balance the financial woes on our children's backs. Let legis-
lators know that education is the root to all. Parents, you
need to call e-mail or write your legislatures.
Make as many calls as you can. These meetings will be
taking place for a while.

Putting out the smoke for good


ast week I wrote about
Making the decision
to stop smoking. This
week I'll talk about getting
medication and using it
correctly and preparing for
relapses and difficult
situations. .
Medications that can
help:
There are several med-
ication approved by the
Food and Drug Administra-
tion to help smokers quit.
Most of them help you
mange withdrawal symp-
toms and urges with small
amounts of nicotine.
One of them, bupropion,
is sometimes used to fight
depression and may help
reduce nicotine cravings.
According to the Nation-
al Institutes of Health,
using an aid to help you
quit could as much as
double your chances of
being successful. It's also
important to remember
that even if these products
.are available over-the-
counter, without a pre-
scription, they are powerful
and could have side effects.
You.should'talk to your
doctor, especially if you are
under 18, pregnant or
breastfeeding or have a
medical condition. Under a
doctor's supervision, you


ALIVE
& WELL
SHELLEY KOPPEL


may be able to use these
products safely, without
side effects.
Among the nicotine
replacement products
available over-the-counter
are: gum sold as Nicorette
and lozenges sold as
Commit.
Products available over-
the counter and by pre-
scription include patches
sold under a variety of
names including Nico- 7,
derm, Habitrol, Prostep
*and Nicotrol;. ":
Products available only
with a prescription include
inhalers sold as Nicotrol;
nasal sprays also sold as
Nicotrol and pills, known
generically as buproprion
and under the brand
, names Zyban or Well-
butrin.
Some people have
success with newer
medication, such as
Chantix, but these medi-
cines may have serious side
'effectsmand you should talk
to your doctor carefully


about the risks and bene-
fits. They are not recom-
mended for everyone.
For more information on
how to use smoking
cessation medications, visit
www. myclearhorizons.com.
It's a big step to stop
smoking, but that's only the
beginning. The harder
battle is staying smoke-free
for the long haul.
Here are some strategies
and plans, again taken
from QuitAssist, to help
you through some rough
patches.
According to the Centers
for Diseases Control and
Prevention, your risk of
relapse is greatest during
the first three months after,,
Quitting. Have a plan in
place to cope with being ,.
around other smokers or in
other difficult situations.
You know what yoir
triggers are; plan for how
you'll handle them ahead
of time.
If you smoke to handle
stress, you need a replace-
ment coping skill. Exercise
is a great stress reliever and
mood elevator. You might
try yoga or tai chi or go for
a walk or run.
SDon't beat yourself up if
you slip. Don't give up! Try
to figure out what hap-


opened to make that urge
uncontrollable. Are there
things you can do to cope
better next time? Ask for
help from friends and
experts.
Coffee and alcohol are
often smoke triggers; limit
their use.
Eat nutritious food.and
Story to exercise most days.
This will also help maintain
your weight.
Remind yourself of the
benefits of not smoking.
Think of good health.
Think of how unpleasant
the house used to
smell.Think of the money
you're saving!
Many states have
QuitLines-.that provide
telephone-based help in
smokingceasadon. In ,
Florida, the state telephone
quidine is 1877 822-6669.
Help is available in English
and Spanish and other, i
language translations are
available.
You can do it. Lots of
people can help.

The truth about desktop shortcuts


Some of the questions
thatI am asked
frequently have to do
with the icons on the
typical Windows desktop.
"Aren't they slowing
things down? I never use
most of them. Can't we get
rid of them?"
I usually answer by
explaining that most of the
icons on the average
desktop are not slowing
the computer down at all,
but are actually more like
speed dial buttons on a
phone.
Most desktop icons are
just shortcuts to programs
buried deeper in the
system, and are on the
desktop so you don't have
to navigate through all
sorts of menus to launch a
program.
If you look closely at the
icons on your desktop, you
may notice that some have
a little arrow in a little
white box at the lower left
corner of the icon. The
arrow itself is kind of curvy
and will point to the top
right corner of the icon.
You may also notice that
other icons (such as the my
computer icon, my docu-
ments icon, recycle bin,
etc.) do not have the little
arrow. There is a big
difference between the two
types of icons. The icons
with the little arrows are


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY


actually just shortcuts and
not the actual program (or
file). And shortcuts are
really, really tiny and don't
slow the computer down at
all.
"But what about the
icons that don't have the
little arrow? Are they safe
to get rid of?"
SThat question is a little
harder to answer. You see,
any icon on your computer
that does not have the little
shortcut indicator is either
a user file or a system file
and messing with it can
cause problems. Icons on
your desktop that are not
shortcuts are either files
that have been saved on
the desktop or system files
that have been set there by
the operating system and
care should be taken when
manipulating them.
Another point I want to
make is that people have
different ideas as to what
the phrase "get rid of"
means. When someone
asks me to get rid of all of
the unused icons on their
desktop what they are
invariably asking me to do
is to delete them.


Now if you have been
reading my column for any
length of time then you
know how I feel about
deleting things from your
computer. It's not some-
thing I do casually. In fact, I
have a saying, "If I were
king I'd have the delete
button stricken from the
keyboard."
My idea of cleaning a ,
Windows desktop by
getting rid of a bunch of
stuff is not to delete
everything, but leans more.
in line with the phrase "out
of sight, out of mind."
People will watch with a
puzzled look on their face
as I create yet another icon
on their desktop (a new
folder), name it something
such as desktop clutter and
then drag all the unused
icons into the new folder..
Then, once the desktop
is down to just the icons
that actually get used, I
drag the desktop clutter
folder and drop it into the'
my documents folder.
Then I usually spend the
next 10 minutes of so
explaining why I went
through all that trouble
rather than just deleting
everything. My explana-
tion really boils down to
habit.
One of the worst habits
people get into with their
machines is deleting stuff
every time they tidy up.


Sure, it's great to have q
tidy desktop, but if you ade
in the habit of casually I
deleting stuff then eventu-
ally, you are going to delete
something you actually
need.
Even worse is the habit.
some people have of ,
emptying the recycle bin
every time they delete
something. That's just a
disaster waiting to happen.
My philosophy is "out of
sight, out of mind." Tidying
up my system by sweeping
a bunch of unused short-
cuts (and actual files for
that matter) into a folder.
and then moving the folder
out of sight ensures that if I
accidentally do "get rid ot'
something" that I need, Ir
can recover it easily
enough by digging into the
folder where I moved it.
Does this mean I am
completely against delet-
ing everything? No, of .
course not. Some things
are indeed trash and I have
no problem deleting them,
I just have a real problem
with the habit of deleting
things with barely a second
thought. I've seen too ,
many people delete their
way into too many prob-
lems.

Leon Camarda, Core Communities project manager of the HGTV home in Port St. Lucie is filmed by the HGTV crew after
receiving recognition by Vice Mayor Jack Kelly for the green home being built in Port St. Lucie. The award was present-
ed at the monthly Treasure CoastGreen at the Element Martini Lounge in St. Lucie West Tuesday, Jan. 27.


Green home for giveaway near completion


By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST. LUCIE As work was
completed on. a HGTV's giveaway
home last week in Tradition, camera
crews were filming the work, and
other events and sites in St. Lucie
County.
Emily Yarbrough, a spokeswoman
for HGTV said the interior decoration
is underway.
The HGTV green home will be given
away on June 28. People will be able
to enter a sweepstakes for it on the
network's Web site, www.hgtv.com
from April 17 to June 5.
Anyone .can submit an entry each
day, she said.
A television show will feature the
home on April 19 at 8 p.m.


The HGTV production crew was
filming in preparation for the show.
SThey showed up at a meeting Jan.
27 of Treasure Coast Green Drinks and
filmed attendees and people who
arrived at the Element Martini
Lounge with compact florescent light
bulbs because the people were show-
ing concern for the environment by
donating energy-efficient bulbs.
Treasure Coast Green Drinks is an
organization for businesses that want
to incorporate environmentally-
friendly practices.
Jessyca Greene, who is with Scripps
Productions, said some of the filming
of the house and at Treasure Coast
Green Driniks could appear on that
show on the Web site.
A separate camera crew, hired on a
contractual basis by the network,


filmed the Savannas, went on a cruise
on the north fork of the St. Lucie River
and interviewed Port St. Lucie Mayor
Patricia Christensen at the city's new
civic center.
In a press release, Jack Thomasson,
HGTV green home house planner,
said that in selecting Port St. Lucie
and Tradition, the station wanted to
pick "a community that demonstrates
that you can build green in an existing
location with desirable amenities.
"Port St. Lucie is an established
town that offers a warm climate and
reasonable access to the Atlantic
Ocean along with established shop-
ping,' schools and health care," he
stated.
The house has been described as a
Spanish contemporary-styled, coastal
Florida cottage.

also asked to reduce travel
expenses. Due to its
remote location, South
Fork was able to keep its
activity buses because of
the good nature of the
other area athletic direc-
tors.
"Martin County and
Jensen Beach both offered
to give up theirs so that we
could keep ours," South
Fork athletic director
Cathy Smith said. "It was
nice of Greg (Hendricks)
and R.J. (Costello) to do
that.
"We transport to all dis-
trict games and all confer-
ence games. It can get
pretty expensive."
Alvarez said that last
year the FHSAA Board of
Directors brought up the
possibility of reducing the
maximum number of con-
tests in each sport, but
ultimately decided to leave
it up to the individual
schools. Martin County
athletic directors did so as
a way of meeting a
requested 10 percent
reduction in expenses.
SIn St. Lucie County,
sports were cut across the
board, with football and
baseball taking two of the
hardest hits. One game off
the traditional 10-game
schedule was eliminated
from the upcoming fall
football season while two
games were sliced off the
baseball season's schedule,
reducing the number of'
games from 25 to 23.
That's two fewer games
to nurture a future major-
league star such as Rick
Ankiel, who starred for the
Jaguars before making an
impact with the St. Louis
Cardinals.
"He (Ankiel) was not the
athlete he was after- his
sophomore season that he
was as a freshman," Nines-
tine said. "He really
matured after his sopho-
more year. ewer games

are going to make mis-
takes.
"What are kids going to

At Sebastian River, the
number of athletic con-
tests will be reduced by 15
percent for the next school
year, a frustrating set of
circumstances for Mark
Adams, the Sharks' boys
basketball coach, who has
built the program into one
of the most successful in
the state by playing the
best competition available.
"This year, we could
have played 25 regular-
season games and we
played 25," Adams said.
"Next year, we can only
schedule 20 games. That
doesn't leave much flexi-
bility with the schedule.
"We play 10 district
games and five games in
the Treasure Lake Confer-
.ence. Plus, you play three
or four games in a Christ-
mas tournament and that
only leaves you a couple of
games to be creative with.
"It's tough. We knew
there would be cutbacks.
It's just a sign of the times."
Vero Beach head football
coach Gary Coggin has
also had to be a little more
resourceful when coming
up with opponents for his
two-time district champi-
on Fighting Indians.
"Some counties are
going to a nine-game
schedule," Coggin said.
"Right now, we haven't had
to do that, but we're having
trouble finding, a full 10
games.
"You have to adjust. You
have to be more flexible.
We have a lot of dedicated
people here who are trying
to keep things as close to
normal as possible."
For Ninestine, who
starred in three sports in
high school that meant
being on the field.
"I tell people I was in
three gangs in school; the
baseball, basketball and
football teams," Ninestine
said. "You learn so much
being a part of a team: how
to be a team member, how
to be on time, organiza-
tional skills.
"There is a direct corre-
lation betweglUiggh school
dropouts and crime. High
school coaches care about
your discipline. They care
about your. grades. If you.
don't have athletics, half of
those kids that were on a
team say, 'I'm not going to
school today, I don't have
practice.
"I don't know where
we're headed. This is really
going to hurt."

Premier

workforce

center

opens
By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST. LUCIE As
officials held a ribbon cut-
ting for the new Work Force
Solutions center, a steady
stream of people seeking
help to find a job walked
inside.
"This is our premier cen-
ter for the Treasure Coast,"
said Gwenda Thompson,
president.
The new center, two years
in the making, comes at a
,time of rising unemploy-
ment.
State Sen. Ken Pruitt, R-
Port St. Lucie, said the new
center will offer a hand up
to those facing problems.
"I know for many there
appears to be a lot of clouds
in the sky," he said at the
ribbon cutting ceremony for
the center on Jan. 28. Even-
tually, he said, the "sky is
going to open up and it's
going to be bluer than it ever
has been before."
Ms. Thompson said that
until last week, Workforce
Solutions provided services
on the east side of the Indi-
an River State College cam-
pus in Fort Pierce.
. But a larger center was
needed and a space couldn't
be located with adequate
parking at the college, she
said.
The new center is located
next to Workforce Solutions
headquarters at 584 N.W.
University Blvd. It is open
from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mon-
day through Friday.
Workforce Solutions is a
nonprofit organization that
provides services to
employers and employees at
no cost.
The center helps employ-
ers recruit people, and pro-
vides career counseling,,


Through the handle of the
ceremonial scissors that
.will cut the ribbon, Gwen-
da Thompson, president of
the newly named Work-
force Solutions, expressed
her thanks to those who
were instrumental in
bringing the career center
to its grand opening in St.
Lucie West Wednesday,
Jan. 28. The state-of-the-art
center is located in Univer-
sity Boulevard, across from
Tradition Field.

Fort Pierce, but still not

County is one of the first in
the state to hold such a rally.
She received a lot of
applause when she said she
opposed cuts to school ath-
letics, music and drama
programs.
"Now is not the time to
turn our back on students,"
she said. "It's time to make


schools a priority."
She advocated a three-
year 1-cent sales tax that
would be dedicated solely to
public schools, colleges and
universities.
Judi Miller, chairwoman
of the St. Lucie County
School Board, said that even
if the state allowed more
flexibility in use of state
funding, that would help.
When she noted the dis-
trict is facing $50 million in


funding cuts, people in the
audience booed at the sta-
tistic.
"We need to see educa-
tion as the greatest invest-
ment, not as the biggest
cost," she said.
Superintendent Michael
Lannon said the rally is the
first step in a political battle
to save school funding.
"This is about politics," he
said, as politicians will make
the decision.

Group travel can be rewarding


r traveling with a group is
Sfun.Whether it is family
and friends, old
classmates or a gathering of
like-minded folks, it can be
an enjoyable time for all.
Some milestones are
celebrated more than others.
A 50th birthday or anniver-
sary, for instance, would
certainly be more of a
celebration than a 40th. One
thing is for sure, when the
party is over it's over, but not
if you chose to travel with
family and friends for the big
occasion. Whether it's a
weekend get-a-way to a
beach house, a cruise or a
trip to an exotic resort hotel,
traveling with a group has its
benefits and sometimes,
pitfalls,
The weekend get-a-way
land package (depending on
your choice of accommoda-
tions), can be a lot of work for
some if you choose a beach
house that has limited
amenities. Who is feeding the
hordes?Where do you want
to go for dinner?What do'you
want to do today? Still, if you
stay at a hotel you may not
have to do the daily clean-up,
but you will have to make
decisions for dining and
entertainment. -
An all-inclusive land resort
is one way to go. Most all-
inclusive properties are in the
Caribbean or Mexico and
range from two-star (not
recommended) to five-star
properties. They include
accommodations, meals,
drinks (including alcohol),
entertainment, kids' pro-
gramns, adult activities,
nightlife, beach activities and
more.
Cruising with a group to
celebrate a special occasion,
also is inclusive (except for
alcohol) and is very popular,
particularly ifyou live in the
southeast where there are
many cruise homeports. Not
having to add airfare to the
vacation budget is a plus.
There are activities for every
age on a cruise.
Destination weddings or
weddings.on board a cruise
ship (currently referred to as
"wedding moons") are -
gerting inc re:si nglypopPu!iat,1
so much so tiat elV -"
booking is very necessary.
Many of the most popular
dates are booked year or
more in advance. Valentine's,
June and the NewYear are
verypopular for brides-to-be.
Planning any wedding or
reunion for that matter is all
in the details, whether you
have it in your hometown, on
a cruise or at a destination. '
Each resort and cruise line
has a wedding coordinator to
help you choose from a
variety of packages. With a
hometown wedding or
anniversary celebration you
have many choices such as
venue, caterer, florist,
photographer, etc.
On a cruise or at a destina-
tion, those are limited to
what is available by the hotel
or cruise ship.
All travel plans can be
taken care of by a travel
consultant that works
direcdy with the cruise line or
resort. This rakes the pressure
off the person responsible for
putting it all together.
One important thing to
remember about cruising
with a group is that you can
spend as much time with
others in your group or as
little; it is all up to you. On a
cruise you may all sit togeth-
er for dinner, but the rest of
the days yours, unless you
have an organized gathering


planned.
With a reunion cruise, you
may reserve a room to hold a
meeting or a gathering that
may include audio and video
for slide show or films of days
gone by. There is generally no
cost to this feature unless you
order food or drink, etc.
Many companies use this
option for sales meetings
because they are inclusive.
The company contacts the
travel consultant they are
working with and they take
care of the details. This is
generally at no additional
cost to the company.The
company decides what it
needs in terms of meeting
rooms and equipment and
the rest is done for them.
They can even send any
plaques, trophies, favors or
thank yous, ahead to be
delivered to the staterooms
(for a nominal fee).
I mentioned earlier that
there can be pitfalls. This is
where planners should take
in all options.
SIf you choose a destination
or cruise event, you have to
take into consideration that
not all will be able to attend.
In some cases, it might be the
expense of the travel, but in
others, it could be time away
from family or business. Your
best friend from high school
may not be able to attend the
reunion or your closest
relative cannot be part of
your wedding day. This is a
tough decision for many.
If you plan at least one year
out, then many willbe able
put down a deposit and make
payments (depending on the


agency) until it is paid in full.
There may be discounts
with group travel or added
amenities to take advantage
of. Whatever the reason for
traveling with a group, it can
be a great way to spend time
with friends and family.
S Contact a reputable travel
consultant to help with you
with your plans. They can be
a valuable asset to your
special event.

Virtually every car dealer of eauca
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 higi
to nearly $1,000. This extra
charge is programmed into .I' -...
your computer. It has been made illegal in
many states including California, but is still
legal in Florida. The reason 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 g 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.


hi

I'm not going to tell you that
nation are I think of myself as the new
"sheriff" that has come to

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 not 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.

I wanted to say thank you
to Sean McCarthy for assis-

Norman Demers, direc-

The competition will
include 43 games, but not
all of them are athletic in

Also included are
archery, arm wrestling,
baseball, billiards, cycling,
dominoes, flag football,


soccer, volleyball and

Mr. Colucci said golf will
be played at PGA in Port St.
Lucie, softball at the Halp-

"Every venue we have is

FORT PIERCE Richard
Taylor, drummer for the
Dukes of Dixieland, began
his career in the kitchen.
"I was just a little kid and
I loved to clunk around on
the pots and pans," he said.
"At 9, I convinced niy par-
ents I needed to play the
Sdrums. I got a beat-up set


as a Christmas present one
year, but it didn't matter,
they were mine and they
made me smile. I've been
smiling ever since.".
The Dukes of Dixieland
have been making audi-
ences smile with their
brand of New Orleans jazz,
the blues and DLxieland for
three decades. They've per-
formed at the Kennedy
Center and with sym-


phonies across the United
States, and they come to
the Sunrise Theatre on Feb.
19. ,
Mr. Taylor, now the
drummer and bandleader,
spoke about their music
and the city he's called.
home since 1964.
"New Orleans jazz' is
upbeat and fun," he said.
"We always have a really
good time. We hit all facets


of the music, the sounds of.
New Orleans if you visited
in the early 1900s to the
present day.
"Dixeland is a form of
jazz that isn't too compli-
cated. The-average person
can understand the music
and it's melodic. When it's
done right, it's magic. I
think what we do is spe-

STAR SCOPES
James Tucker
Week of 2-6-2009


Aries March 21-April 19
The light within you contin-
ues to shine and brighten
the world around you. You
are a whole and perfect
reflection of the good, cre-
ative power that gives, sus-
tains and increases life. Con-
tinue to live in peace arid
harinony with yourself and
others. Stay excited about
today and the endless possi-
bility to live life to the fullest
and you will.

Taurus April 20-May 20
You have a powerful mind,
but your best results come
when you follow your heart
and instincts. Balance is the
key. Without it,. the stress
begins to slow you down
and wear you out. When
this happens, take a step
back, slow down and ask for
spiritual guidance to get
back on track. Now you
have the great blessing and
life will be better than ever,

Gemini May 21-June 21
Continue to create a new
and better life for yourself
and those you love. Refuse
to let the occasional storm
slow you down or hold you
back. You are the master
communicator of the uni-
verse you know. Listen twice
as much as you speak. Be
Grateful daily for your many
blessings. Firm up your daily
plans before taking action.
Now all is well.

Cancer June 22-July 22
Your strong belief in doing
things right reflects your
good heartedness and
strong conscience. These
qualities are a major factor
in your personal and profes-
sional success. You can:
always be counted on to get
the job done and do the,
right thing. Your strong emo-
tional nature is the essence:
of life. For this you are to be
rewarded.

Leo July 23-Aug. 22
Because of your recent cre-
ative output, many more
positive results are on the
way. This attitude of positive
expectancy rubs off on oth-
ers and makes them want to
help you get what you want.
Now be generous and share
your blessings. This is a
wonderful way to live and
what Leos, the kings and
queens of the jungle, are all
about.

The band features Earl
Bonie on clarinet,. Jamie
Wright on trumpet, Ben
Smith on trombone and
vocals, Scott Obenschain on
piano, John Lutz on bass
and, of course, Mr. Taylor on
drums.
"The guys are all excellent
musicians," Mr. Taylor said.
"We feature each of the guys
on their instruments.
They're all solid musicians
and long-time players with
the band. It's something to
hear."
The Dukes have a new
CD, "Deep South Blues,"
and the audience can
expect to hear the blues,
some ragtime and the
upbeat sound of songs such
as "When they Saints Go-
Marchin' In" and "The Bour-
bon Street Parade."
"It's the music of the city,"
Mr. Taylor said. "We try to
paint a musical picture of
our town."
The Dukes make their
home on the steamboat
Natchez, playing nightly for


cruise audiences when
they're not on the road.
After Hurricane Katrina,
they spent a month on the
ship. They performed all
along the Mississippi, rais-
ing money for the Bush-
Clinton Katrina fund. While
there is still work to be done
in residential areas, Mr. Tay-
lor hopes that people will
come to visit his adopted
home.
"It's a special town that
exists for having a good


time," he said. "Tourists
should come to enjoy the
city, the food, the music, the
zany people. We're looking
forward to Mardi Gras. The
town is open for business."

Scopes
From page B1

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22
You are so good to your
family, friends and associ-
ates. Why don't you let
them help you once in a
while? Very few others are
able to read your inner
thoughts and feelings
unless you tell them. Speak
up a little. This allows your
loved ones to show appre-
ciation back. Now everyone
is happy. What a wonderful
way to live.


Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Your quest for spiritual
knowledge is legendary.
Keep going with and
plumbing the inner depths.
Bring out the visions and
inspirations that lead you to
self-discovery and mastery
over life. Now you are at
your best. Now you have
greater purpose, peace,
love and health. Wow! What
a great payoff for listening
to your true self and shin-
ing your light.
Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Fine-tune your life. Focus in
on the most important


areas that need fixing. Write
down your plan and sleep
on it. Then tomorrow, take
action. Take care of the
most important things first.
Be sure to balance it our
each day by taking time to
play. Do something nice for
yourself. You have more
than earned it.
Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Your good nature, focused
vision and inner guidance
continue to move you for-
ward and bring hope joy
and peace to your life and
the world. Your greatest joy
comes from making some-

humor and laughter is leg-

Your spirit is strong. Your
heart is open. It will only
get better from here.
Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19
You know you are making
progress when warm feel-
ings and encouragement
comes back from your
friends. The joy and happi-
ness in your heart ripples
out like waves on a pond,
gets into their hearts and
comes back to you multi-
plied. If there is one defin-
ing quality about your life,
this is it. You are so loved
and respected.
Aquarius Jan.20-Feb.18
When you are relaxed and
centered it is easy for you
to turn inspired ideas into
realities. Very few others
have this gift of depth and
concentration. You have the
tools and you know how to
use them. Because of this
there is always action
around you. You were born
to do great things with your
life and fulfill your promise.
You continue to make us all,
proud.
Pisces Feb. 19-March 20
Sometimes you may won-
der where you get the ener-
gy to keep going even
when life keeps piling on
more responsibilities. The
answer lies in the heart.
Whenever you need it, this
"heart power" turns on and
gives you the needed boost
to carry on. When your spir-
it is strong and your heart is
happy, you are invincible.

PORT ST. LUCIE -
WellMed celebrated 2009
by hosting a dance event
on Jan. 7 at the Port St.
Lucie Civic Center.
Nearly 200 senior citi-
zens were treated to an
afternoon of good food,
music and fun.
Party guests were
treated to a buffet lunch
and a live five-piece
band. A special station
was set up to provide
guests with souvenir
photos.
Professional dancers
were on-hand to show
attendees the latest
dance moves.
"I cannot underscore
enough the importance
of seniors remaining
active," said Chris Rao,
WellMed physician. "By
having events like this
dance, seniors get to
interact with friends and
dance; they are exercis-
ing their minds and bod-
ies."
State celebrity Mrs.
Florida, Angela Harwell,
welcomed guests, posed
for photos, signed auto-
graphs and mingled with
attendees.

Show your love to


the one you love


H ello smart shop-
pers. Before we
get to Valentine's
Day I have to tell you
about the merry-go-
round from hell.
When my honey and I
were dating, we would
often go to Rye Beach for
swimming and the
carnival in NewYork.
While the ferris wheel
and roller coaster were
not my cup of tea, all
other rides were great.
One particular gloomy
Sunday, with the park
almost empty, we were
the only ones on the
merry-go-round. The
controller offered us a
Longer ride and decided
to have some fun as he
kept increasing the
speed until the horses
were but a blur. The force
of the spinning had me
fighting to stay on the
horse. As Bill forced
himself off his steed to
try to hold me he kept
screaming, as this fool
just laughed. When we
finally stopped, I was
hysterical and Bill was
dripping with sweat. If
he wasn't so concerned
about me he would have
flattened this fool.
From then on, I swore
off that ride. Little-did I
know an experience on
Jan. 22 would take me so
far beyond the ride, as I
was suddenly hit with
vertigo so severe, it put
me in the hospital for
three days. I am writing
this column with great
difficulty on my second
dayhome. ,
Thank God, after
several tests, an upcom-
ing treatment will'
hopefully correct future
problems.
This column is for you,
so pay attention. Any
advice I give, I. lived, and
I was happily married
more than 40 years. ,
Celebrate the special
person in your life. It's
not easy to make a ,
marriage work for many
years. but it is a most.
worthwhile accomplish-
ment. There are times
you love that special
someone to death and
there are times you'd like
to put him or her to
death.
Just remember, think
we, us, our. To be loved
you must be lovable; it is
not your right, it must be
earned. It doesn't take
long to know what
buttons to pushand not
push.
Talk about feelings,
wants, needs, everything.
Choose \our words
carefully;, you can never
erase them. Timing is
everything and when
anger or resentment
enters the picture, don't
talk.
Never lose respect for
the other; once respect is
gone, love is soon to
follow.
A candlelight dinner
Mithout the kids, if
ppgsible, is wonderful,
especially when eating
o0'is not affordable.
Nake something easy
Eten take our's OK.
Set'the stage and plan
t'inake the evening

My steady boyfriend
and I spent the evening
of my/senior prom at the
\Valdort'Astoria in New
York City. What a magical
evening, as we danced to
the big band.

vowed to someday make
for my husband. Many

PORT ST. LUCIE Twen-
ty Boy Scouts in Troop 445
are spending time to earn a
merit badge with the help of
volunteers from the Trea-
sure Coast Wood Carvers
Club.
The troop meets at the
Disabled American Veteran's
Hall on California Boulevard
in Port St. Lucie on Tuesday
nights and boys ages 11 to
18 are learning from a hand-
ful of experts who have been
honing their craft, some for
more than 20 years.
"We are excited to bring
this educational experience
to the Scouts," \said club
member Don Millenbruch.
"For me, personally, it is
exciting to introduce this
hobby to as many young
people as possible."
During the one-hour
weekly sessions, Mr. Millen-
bruch and six other carvers,
including two female mem-


bers, are teaching the safe
and proper use of wood
carving tools, as well as.
other safety tips and proce-
dures, regarding the mainte-
nance of carving imple-
ments.
The boys are. shown how
to choose the appropriate
types of wood, mindful of
the qualities of color, hard-
ness and beauty of the grain.
Club members have
brought samples of their
work each week to display to
the troop and their parents.
Sharing the ability to extract
a work of art from a blank
piece of wood is something
these volunteers enjoy.
The merit badge require-
ments include learning
about various wood. types
such as bass, walnut, butter-
nut, cedar and mahogany,
which Millenbruch had on
hand as samples. The boys
are creating an eagle neck-
erchief slide and a Santa

New Permanent Teeth......

A Life Changing Experience


Modern Advances in dental
technology and surgical techniques
mean now, more and more people who
have lost their natural teeth can live
fuller, richer, and happier lives. They
allow the person to go to favorite
restaurants and order what they want
to eat, instead of what they can eat.
Dental implants can restore a person's
ability to eat, smile, kiss and talk with
confidence and comfort.

A dental implant is a substitute
tooth root that provides a stable foun-
dation for replacement teeth. The
implant is anchored into the jawbone
through a process where the bone and
the implant become integrated, pro-
viding the same stability as natural
teeth. This means that replacement
teeth can look, feel, and function just
like real teeth! .

Since dental implants, like
teeth, are embedded in the jaw, the
painful chewing associated with
removable teeth is eliminated. Unlike
traditional dentures, implants sup-
ports dentures so that there is little
pressure on the gums.

While dental implants have
been available for many years, new
advance for many years, new advances
make them available to more people.
New techniques can provide support
for implants where the implants could
not have been placed before.

Additionally, dental implants
can be used to solve a variety of dental
problems. For example, implants can
be used to replace a single missing
tooth instead of making a traditional
bridge. They can be placed to support


an entire bridge where the natural
teeth are missing, or they can be used
.to give the patient a better fitting den-
ture so they can eliminate the prob-
lems the problems traditionally associ-
ated with dentures.

Best of all, you'll be' able to
smile more naturally and be comfort-
able in normal activities such as talk-
ing, laughing, smiling and eating.

Explore dental implants as a
solution to your personal dental prob-
lems. Cal Dr. Rankin today to schedule
your FREE personal consultation and
examination, dental implants can help
you smile and eat with confidence
again!

Get ready for snook season

and fishing in the cold


Snook season is open
and it's cold and
raining.
The rain is not a problem,
the fish are already wet, but
the cold is a problem for
both angler and fish.
Snook do not like chang-
ing temperatures, and they
will go deep in the water
column looking for water
that maintains their
comfort zone.
Anglers, look for the
deeper water and present
your bait as slow as you
can. When these fish get
cold, they slow down and
feed the same. Slow
presentation is the key.
Look at the deeper areas,
chaimels, bridges and holes
to list a few. Pin fish,
shrimp on a jig head, flair
hawks and sinking plugs
will be your most produc-
tive bait.
The bag limit is one and
the slot is 28 to 32 inches.
It's a hard slot, so do not
forget some sort of measur-
ing devise. Trout wait for
the water to warm, so let
the sun work for you. Late
morning will be the most
productive.
There are plenty of blue
fish and mackerels; they
like the cooler water.
There's a good bite of
pompano both iri the St.
Lucie and Indian rivers, a
jig with a piece shrimp will
find them.
Surf anglers have report-
ed blue fish till their arms
got tired. Blues, mackerels
and jacks like the cooler
water, and yes, so do the
pompano. The problem is
do I get into the action of
the one cast, one fish, or do
I target that pompano?
Blue fish will eat any
thing that moves. The
pompano have been taking
clam strips and sand fleas
with a long cast, but the
blues are everywhere and
yes they like clam strips
too. Target species is up to
the angler, but if you are
fishing the surf, be ready
for the blue fish.
Offshore the conditions
have been changing. The
fish that I have talked with

PORT ST. LUCIE One
thing Port St. Lucie grappler
Alexander Robinson hasn't
wrestled with this season is
complacency.
"He's done well," Jaguars'
head coach Jim Dailey said.
"He continues to improve.
The biggest thing with him
is his consistency. He's been
in control of all the matches
he's been in.
"He has that solid pres-
ence out there."
So far, Robinson's 23-4
record supports Dailey's
claim.
"All his losses have been
to state qualifiers," Dailey
said. "When you look at him
you think he should win his
matches."
Robinson's rise to the top
of the area wrestling charts
has been a circuitous one.
His first taste of the sport
came as a high-school
freshman in Georgia. After
transferring to Port St. Lucie
for his sophomore cam-
paign, Robinson had to anx-
iously wait on the sidelines
before seeing action.
"In the beginning, I wasn't
eligible because of bad
grades," Robinson siad.
"Then I had to practice to
get my weight down.
"Finally, I was able to get
out there. I was happy."
Robinson immediately
paid dividends for the
Jaguars. He qualified for
regionals and narrowly


"I believe I could have done better last year.
I've done better this year. I have to prove that
I'm worthy of being a leader."

PSL wrestler


missed earning a trip to the
state tournament. Last
season, the Port St. Lucie
resident continued to
improve, becoming one of
just two Jaguars to make it
to the Florida High School
Athletic Association finals.
The 18-year-old came up
short, but his performance
on the mat has made a
return engagement seem
inevitable.
"I believe I could have
done better last year,"
Robinson said. "I've done
better this year. I have to
prove that I'm worthy of
being a leader."
Robinson has done just
that, turning in memorable
performances when it has
mattered most. At the 21-
team Steadwell/Grow
Memorial Tournament ear-
lier this month featuring
some of the best \nTesders in
Florida, Robinson earned a
consolation final win over
Sebastian River's Dennis
Vorobyov 5-3.
At the Treasure Lake Con-
ference. tournament two
weeks ago, Robinson made
it to the championship
match in the 171-pound
weight class before falling to

ki.
"I had it under control,
but I got tired in the last
match and couldn't finish,"
Robinson said. "I have to
build up my stamina and
- get stronger."
Robinson's willingess to
improve hasn't been lost on
Dailey.
"He's a real strong leader
for "us," Dailey said. "He
leads by example."
The senior is also tops in
several other categories for
the Jaguars, including most
points and most pins with
14.
"Pinfalls are fun to get,"
Robinson said. "It's easier to
go for the pins. You get more
team points.
"I like the action, getting
the adrenaline rush. It just
Feels good."
Robinson hopes to keep
the positive vibes going at
the next level. He wants to
wrestle in college, although
he knows he still has a lot to
learn.
"I have to continue to
work hard in practice,"
Robinson said. "I have to
improve my moves and my
holds."

A chance to play with the pros ____A_ __s_


W thing the early
season events on
the PGATour, we
find a common trend.
Most all of them are pro-
ams with celebrities and the
overly wealthy taking up the
amateur spots.
If you're like me, you've
often wondered how sweet it
would be to play in one of
these events. If you're like
me, you also lack the coin
needed to tee it up with the
pros in one of these events.
I'm here today to inform
you that your chance has
arrived.
On Feb. 21, at Errol Estate.
Country Club in Apopka,
just outside Orlando, you
can tee it up with one of the
touring professionals of the
LPGA's Duramed Futures
Tour.
Imagine one day being
Sable to say that you played
in a pro-am with the
Women's U.S. Open champi-
on or the world's No. 1
golfer? Lorena Ochoa, the
game's top player, Christina
Kim, Grace Park and Beth
Bauer, are just a few gradu-
ates of the Duramed Futures
Tour.
The Duramed Futures
Tour is the developmental
tour for ladies striving to
become top pros on the
LPGA Tour. Playing the tour
requires a good-sized
financial commitment from
these mostly young women.
This event is designed to

help pros in need of assis-
tance, while allowing regular
golfers the opportunity to
meet and play with these
wonderful women.
Dave Andrews, a retired
sportscaster from Channel 9
in Orlando, along with
several friends, created the
Future Starts Foundation to
help many of the players
who struggle financially
each season.
Playing for just a few
thousand dollars in prize
money makes it difficult to
travel the country playing in
the tour's 18 or so events.
Their expenses for travel,
entry fees and meals alone
are more than $30,000.
The goal of the fourida-
tion, and this pro-am event,
is to help as many players as
possible to keep their
dreams of playing on the
LPGA Tour alive and kicking.
Andrews has even written


a novel titled "Pops and
Sunshine," a moving story
about Lisa Nelson, a beauti-
ful 20-year-old pro on the
Duramed Futures Tour.
Struggling with the loss of
her father, and the pressure
to win the year's final event
or give up her dream, makes
this a moving and wonderful.
story that any golfer or golf
fan will enjoy.
The fundraising Pro-Am at
Errol Estate Country Club is
the inaugural fundraising
event for the foundation.
The event starts with a 12:30
p.m. shotgun, followed by
dinner and awards.
Players will compete in
four-person teams, one
Futures Tour pro and three
amateurs. The pros score
along with the best one of
the three amateurs will
count for each hole.
While playing your round,
you will enjoy the company
of a young star in the
making*
Errol Estate is located in
the rolling hills ofApopka.
The 27-hole Joe Lee-
designed course dips and
rolls around innumerable
vistas, impressive landscap-


ing and towering.pine and
oak trees, creating dramatic
views on every hole.
I had the pleasure of
playing this course a few
years ago. The elevation
changes and beautiful views,
along with the lush fairways
and perfect greens, made for
a delightful round of golf.
In fact, you'll be hard-
pressed to remember that
you're still in Florida. The
course has a distinctly
Carolina feel to it, providing
a great atmosphere for a
round of golf.
Cost for the entire event is
only $200. For this low price
you get a round of golf at
one of central Florida's best
private courses with a
touring lady professional,
dinner, prizes and the great
feeling that goes with
