Resident continues

music career


By Jay Meisel

PORT ST. LUCIE -
The stories of those
going to Hollywood to
seek fame and fortune
are endless, and one
Port St. Lucie resident
has his own.
Dean Lopes, whose
lifelong passion is
music, said that to make
ends meet in Hollywood
during the 1990s, he
sold lunches at Para-
mount Studios.
He got to know people
there and they learned
that he wrote and per-


formed music, he
recalled last week.
"Entertainment
Tonight" was interested
in "up -and coming
musicians" and he sup-
plied demos, said Mr.
Lopes, who is a drum-
mer and percussionist.
Since then, he said,
his music .has been
played on "Entertain-
ment Tonight," "E! True
Hollywood Stories" on
the E! channel, commer-
cials and at the wedding
of Billy Joel and Christie
Brinkley.

City questions decision


to cut special needs shelters


By Jay Meisel
meisel@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST.. LUCIE -.
With hurricane season
several'months away, city
leaders .voiced concern
this week about St. Lucie
County's plan to reduce
its number of special
needs shelters from two
to one.
St. Lucie County Health
Department officials only


plan to operate. one
countywide special needs
center at the Havert L.
Fenn Center in Fort
Pierce. It would serve
people who need medical
care during a hurricane.
During 2004 when hur-
ricanes Francis and
jeanne, struck, special
needs centers were open
in Fort Pierce and Port St..
Lucie.
Vice Mayor Jack Kelly


questioned the decision
to have the special needs
shelter in Fort Pierce.
It's "common sense to
run the special needs
shelter where the bulk of
the people are," he said.
City manager Don
Cooper said if the county
sticks to the decision. the-
city would have to hire
staff if it wanted to have
its own special needs
shelter.


In a letter to former
county administrator
Doug Anderson, health
department director
Larry Lee wrote that the
Havert L. Fenn Center
would accommodate
special needs evacuees
from both cities.

Hibiscus Children's center seeks


to increase awareness in county


By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
For more than 20 years,
the Hibiscus Children's
Center has helped abused
and neglected children on
the Treasure Coast.
And the majority of
those children are from St.
Lucie County, although
exact numbers aren't
available.
But since the center's
major facilities are in Mar-
tin and Indian River coun-
ties, "many people in St.


Lucie County aren't aware
of'the work the Hibiscus
Children's. Center is
doing," said Thomas B.
Maher, executive director.
Because of that, the
center is working to
increase awareness in St.
Lucie County.
Some time in the future,
Hibiscus may consider
building a children's shel-
ter or facility in St. Lucie
County, Mr. Maher said.
Hibiscus began in Mar-
tin County in the mid
1980s.
La Vaughn Tilton, a Mar-


tin County resident,
worked to form Hibiscus
after a boy was drowned in
a toilet 'by his mother's
abusive boyfriend.
Ms. Tilton was con-
cerned about the lack of
programs in the area for
abused children.
Originally, Hibiscus
built a shelter for abused
children in Martin County
that served up to 36. That
shelter is still being used.
Around 2000, Hibiscus
opened a children's village
in Indian River County
that included eight homes


for abused and neglected
children.
The only facility in St.
Lucie County is an office
that provides nutrition
and mental health servic-
es for children. It's located
at 7410 U.S. in Port St.
Lucie.
Services provided by
Hibiscus include:
Support and training
for foster parents.

State Farm

agents:

wait for

regulators'

decision

By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
ST. LUCIE COUNTY- It's
been a tough week for State
Farm agent Glenn Rains
and his 2,000 policyholders
in St.Lucie County.
But the agent has scram-
bled to get out a clear mes-
sage to clients. He's telling
them that their policies
aren't up for immediate ter-
mination, : and ::advising
against a rush to switch to
other insurance carriers.
Like the other 826 State
Farm agents across Florida,
Mr. Rains has been fielding
nonstop calls from clients,
many of whom want to
switch to competitors.
The news of the market
leaderA intention to cancel
its homeowners' insurance
business sent policyholders
scrambling to ensure con-
tinued coverage.
But in an unexpected
twist, competing agencies
aren't eagerly lapping up
the new business. Instead,
many are urging State Farm.
Clients not to rush out and'
buy new policies just yet.
"It's unfortunate," said
Dave Pellicano, owner of A-
Advantage Insurance Ser-
vices in Port St. Lucie. "Who
knows what's going to hap-
pen?"
In the last week alone,
he's helped two customers
make the switch, and given
quotes to about a dozen
more.
"Customers don't want to
wait until the bitter end.
They want replacement
coverage right away," he
said.
The uncertainty started
last month, when State
Farm announced plans to
cancel property and casual-
ty coverage after Florida
insurance regulators
denied it a rate increase of
more than 47 percent.
The firm said that billions.
in losses during the 2004:
hurricane season forced it.
to borrow $750 million from
its parent company, State
Farm Mutual.
Spokeswoman Michal
Connolly said that rising
operating costs, declining
revenue and several other
factors have prevented the

IF IT WAS WORTH
FAKING IT WILL BE
Just name it more than likely
someone will want to buy or sell it.
Books, coins, stamps, bottles,
beer cans, gold, glassware, base-
ball cards, guns, clocks, watches,
comics, art, cars the list goes on.
GAIN ALL THE KNOWLEDGE
YOU CAN learn all about the
objects you collect. The more
knowledge you have, the more
successful you will be in finding
valuable, quality pieces. Amas-
sing the knowledge required to be
a good collector is easier if you
have narrowed your scope of inter-
est. Don't try to learn everything
there is to know about a variety of
fields. This will end in frustration
and disappointment. MAKE UP
YOUR MIND AND FOCUS on
what you want to collect and con-
centrate in this area. Your field of
collecting should be one that you
are genuinely passionate about. It
may also help to narrow your field
even further. BUY THE BEST
CONDITION YOU CAN AFFORD
ASSUMING THE PRICES ARE
FAIR. The advanced collector may
want only mint articles, but the
novice collector may be willing to
accept something far less than
mint condition, due to caution and
economics. Collectible items in
better condition continue to rise in
value at a steady rate. DEAL WITH
REPUTABLE DEALERS whom
you can trust. Talk with the dealer
and get to know the seller. Ask for
a business card. Know where you
can contact the dealer if you have
problems or if you want the dealer
to help you find something else
you may be looking for. FAIR
MARKET PRICE: fair price may be
defined as fair, reasonable range
of prices usually paid for a watch
or something of value as a col-
lectible. This market level includes
a particular time frame, desirabili-
ty, condition and quality. A willing
buyer and willing seller acting
carefully and judiciously, in their
own best interest, should amicable
be able to conduct business in a
normal and fair manner (preferably
with payment immediately).

GREEN IN THE DENTIST'S OFFICE

Q: What do dentists do to help the environment?"
A: Perhaps the single largest ste the field of dentistry has taken to be sensitive to the
environment is the elimination of the use of bulk mercury in preparing
amalgam, the substance most commonly used in fillings. Testifying before the
U.S. Congress, J. Rodway Mackert, DMD, PhD and a spokesperson for the '
American Dental Association, said that dentists now use encapsulated F
amalgam, small packets that continue a precise measure of elemental mercury
and the other powdered metals with which it is mixed to make a filling.
This practice is a result of the ADA gathering its best management practices and
disseminating them among its membership. The ADA has also recently added amalgam
separators to its list of best management practices. The non-for-profit ADA represents more
than 155,000 dental practitioners. Ask your dentist about measures he takes to protect the
environment.

During the last several
months, Mr. Maher said,
Hibiscus officials attended
various events in St. Lucie
County to inform people
about their work and pro-
grams.
Hibiscus officials have
been recruiting people at
events to help spread the
word.
Jack Connolly, a resident
of north St. Lucie County

FLORIDA EYE DOCTOR HELPS



LEGALLY BLIND TO SEE AGAIN


Specialist in Low Vision Care
helps those with macular
degeneration to keep reading
and driving
By Lois Neinken
Fmlreace Il ter
ust 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
Optometrist, Dr. Mare Jay Gannon, is using
miniatunized binoculars or telescopes to help
people who have lost vision from macular
degeneration or other eye conditions.
"Some ofmy patients consider me the-
last stop for people who have vision
loss", said Dr. Gannon, a low vision
specialist with offices in Ft La4derdale,
Boca Raton, West Palm Beach and Stuart.
"People don't know that there are
doctors who are very experienced in low
vision care". Dr. Gannon is a panel
member of the Florida Division of Blind
Services and the international Society for
Low Vision Research and Rehabilitation.
Dr. Gannon is the founder and director of
the Low Vsion Institute and the American


Patient Norma Goldstein demonstrating
telescopic glasses for driving


Foundation of Low Vision Rehabilitation.
Miacdlar 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


snacular 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 mnuti-
tion. In 15 to 20% of the
time is genetic.
S There are two types,
Sweet 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.
"Our job is to figure out
everything and anything
possible to keep a person
fitnctioning", says Dr. Gamon.
Even if it's driving.
Donald Paquette, 72, a former county
ssor fronn Anaheim, Califolnia was seen
November. "I could not read the street
ssoon enough when driving and I couldn't
my saxophone music anymore".
The Doctor fit him with bioptic
scope glasses. "Amazing!" says Do-
. "I can read the street signs twice as
as I did before. I can play my sax
n. Happy day!"
Dr. Gannon also provides special
roscope reading glasses to make the
paper print much easier to read.


Dorothy Weston, 80, from Broward
County, Florida was unable to perform
her job as a bookkeeper before visiting
Dr. Gamnon. 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-microscope system for her
designed to function like a bifocal". "The
top part allowed her t6 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
differentlevels of vision and different desis.
Dr. Gannon can be reached toll.free at
1-866-942-2020. You can visit Dr. Gannon
at www.owVisionlnstitute.com.
Free seminars for senior centers and
retirement facilities are also available.

Humane Society tops in state


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
The Humane Society of St.
Lucie County tops seven of
the largest counties in Flori-
da in percent of animals
saved statistics. It also has
the lowest per capital cost.
The Humane Society of
St. Lucie County saves more
than three times as many
animals as Miami-Dade
County, and tops Brevard,
Broward, Duval, Orange and
Palm Beach counties.
In terms of costs per capi-


ta, even with a population
base of more than 250,000
residents, the county's-per
capital cost of $7.08 is
almost 50 percent of the per
capital costs of Brevard,
Palm Beach and Orange
counties.
Andrew Rowan, executive
vice president of operations
for. the national Washing-
ton, D.C.-based Humane
Society of the United States,
presented the surprising
statistics in a trends survey
paper recently to a regional
meeting of Florida Humane
Societies at the Pegasus
Foundation in Palm City.


The Humane Society of
St. Lucie County, although
housed in a 50-year-old
shelter, has a dedicated
staff, volunteers and board
of directors that makes sure
every penny counts;
As an open admissions
shelter, the society turns no
animal away. Each year
more than 9,000 animals are
housed, fed and provided
medical care. The shelter
prides itself on the fact no
time limit is placed on ani-
mals housed.
Every animal leaving the
shelter is altered and
microchipped to help


reduce overpopulation.
Almost 2,000 animals
were spayed or neutered in'
2008, many at no cost.
This year the Humane
Society of St Lucie County's
fundraiser, the 2009 Fur Ball
will be held Feb. 28. The
theme will be "Beloved Pets
Past and Present." Funds
raised will be dedicated to
help kindness in action.

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".


Fellow Florida Car Dealers, if you don't

was always perfect for the past 38 years.
When I look at some of my past advertising
and sales tactics, I am not always proud.

evolved. My customers' expectations, level

higher today. Your customers are no different.
My remarks are made'sincerely and with a

Now, here is the good news. After eliminat-

by about the amount of the dealer fee, but
my customers realized I was now giving them
a fair shake and quoting a complete out-the-
door price with no "surprises". And the word
spread. My volume of car sales began to rise
rapidly. Sure, I was making a few hundred.
dollars less per car, but I was selling a lot
more cars. I was and am selling cars to many
of your former customers. My bottom line

Music
From page Al
But unlike Mr. Joel and
Mrs. Brinkley, Mr. Lopes
and his love of music
haven't parted ways,
though he's moved thou-
sands of miles away to Port
St. Lucie to be closer to
family.
" "That's really what my
passion has been is and has
been for a long time," he
said of music.
One of his strengths is
versatility, in that he writes
ind performs virtually


every type of music, includ-
ing rock, country, jazz and
alternative, he said.
It started growing up in a
family that loved music. His
father belonged to a drum
and bugle corps and his
mother had an extensive
collection of records. He
joined his high school band
in Rhode Island and
became the co-captain.
As a young man, Mr.
Lopes studied musically
privately at the Rhode
Island School of Music,
founded by Artie Cabral.
,Mr. Lopes then became
involved with local bands.
He attended the Berklee
College of Music in Boston,
which he termed "an eye-
opening event" because of
being exposed to drum-
mers from around the
world.
While there, he formed a
group called Universe in
the late 1970s that included
Dave Matos, currently a
New York City guitarist,
who has been a substitute
on the Dave Letterman
show band.


They later formed THE
PULL, a New England tour-
ing club band.
In the 1980s, he said, he
formed a rock band called
F-Sharp that toured New
England and New York.
Then he moved to Arir
zona, where he was hired
by singer Robert Tepper,
who was in need a touring
band, Mr. Lopes said. Mr.
Tepper is best known for
his song from the "Rocky
IV" movie, "No Easy Way
Out."
After moving in the early
1990s to Hollywood, he
lived on Hollywood Boule-
vard, he said.
He hooked up with Rod
West, a disc jockey from
Rhode Island, who had also
moved west.
Mr. West, he said, formed
Tunedge, a business that
supplied music to televi-
sion and radio. His music
was included in the
Tunedge library.

What's hiding


behind the red 'X?'


.liHis IS NOW IHEOFF1CIf.L

GRAND oPIMi(7, OF 1TRREY PINESL


f you have surfed the
Web for any length of
time, then I'm sure
you've run into the
infamous "red X," where a
picture or other graphic
was supposed to appear.
What is that?
Why is it that some
pages load fine, but some
pages just show a red X
where you know a picture
should be?
The red X rarely means
there is something wrong
with your machine or
Web browser. The red X
means the picture or
graphic the Web page is
referring to is not where
the Web page thinks it's
supposed to be.
You see, every time a
Web page loads into your
browser, there are a ton
of things that are going
on in the background
that you usually aren't
aware of.
What you see are the
results of all'of these
things either working
properly or not.
The red X is an indica-
tor that something didn't
make it down from the
Internet and load into the
browser the way it was
supposed to, '
When you go to aWeb
site that has pictures or
any other content that
isn't raw text, there is a
line of code embedded
behind the scenes on that
page that points to the
location of whatever the
page is trying to display.
Most of the time, the
images the Web page are
pointing to are right
:.where.the page thinks it
is and it displays fine.
Sometimes the picture
isn't where the page
thinks it is, and that's
when your browser
displays the little red X.
Think of it as a place-
holder marking where the
image'is supposed to be
on the page.
But how can this be?
Don't Web designers
check their work to make
sure that the pages
display properly?
Not always.
These days, just about
anybody can throw
together a Web site, and
that means some Web
designers just don't know
how to check their work
properly.
For instance, back
when I was first learning
how to design Web sites, I
set up a page, uploaded it
to the Web andthen
checked it with my
browser to make sure it
looked OK. I was pleased
because everything
appeared just as I had
designed it.
Then I had a friend
look at the page. He told
me there was a problem.
None of the pictures


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY


would load, just a bunch
of little red Xs.
I took a look at the
page's "source code" and
found that for each of my
pictures the page was
looking for them on the
browser's local "c" drive
and not the images folder
I had uploaded when I
created the site.
Since the images were
indeed in my c drive -
where the page was
looking for them they
displayed just fine when I
looked at the page in my
browser.
However, because no
one else had the images
on their c drive the
images failed to load.
In that example, even
though I checked the
page and all seemed well,
it took someone else to
discover the problem.
Sometimes a page is
pointing to an image on
another Web site and if
that image gets taken
down or moved there will
be nothing there when
the .page goes looking for
it.
Sometimes images may
fail to load because of
heavy traffic. If the site
you are accessing is too
busy or has a ton of
graphics, the images may
time out when loading
and you may have to
refresh the page to get all
the pictures to display.
These are just a few of
the most common
reasons why an image
may fail to load.
You may even see the
same symptoms in.your
e-mail. With e-mail,
however, the problem
'often results from your
security settings being set
too'high.
If you are using Out-
look Express for instance,
and you find that you *
never see images load in
your e-mail messages,
but you are seeing a ton
of red X place holders,
check your security
settings. '
Click tools, options
Then security and make
sure that the "block
images and external
content" checkbox is not
checked.'
If it is, uncheck it and :
you should then be able
to see your e-mail the
way it was composed.

Re: Teacher's hearing

You can imagine my surprise viewing the early evening
news today and seeing the report on a hearing I attended
this afternoon.
The TV version sensationalized the case. It sounded as
though the teacher had the class vote to ouster the child
for the rest of the school year, not the rest of the day in
which he had been chewing crayons while lying on the
floor underneath his desk and sent to the building admin-
istrator more that once on the day in question.
I heard the testimony of the administrator on duty the
day of this event. The classroom teacher, it seems, was try-
ing to engage the class in helping to modify the child's dis-
ruptive behavior by having his realize the impact his
behavior was making on his classmates, which is a tecdog-
nized educational technique.
The administrator testified regarding the repeated
infractions by this child. When he was sent to her, she testi-
fied that she removed his shoes and placed each on the
correct foot. Her testimony was chock full of circumlocu-
tions and garbled utterances and although she was
appearing for the district and testifying against the.
teacher, in my professional opinion, her testimony sup-
ported the teacher's action. That poor child needs to learn
that his behavior impacts on others, as we all must learn.
What surprised this former educator and current
adjunct college professor was that there was no mention
about including the school psychologist in establishing a
behavior intervention plan or referring him for special
education services/placement. Most states in the U.S. fol-
low Public Law No. 94-142 better known as the Individuals
with Disabilities Education Act.
Perhaps tomorrow's continuation of the hearing will
reveal what other options, if any, were available to this
,beleaguered teacher, who had a duty to the rest of the
class. And where is the school district's responsibility to the
other children in the class?
Why isn't the federal law being followed in St. Lucie
County?
Editor's note: The hearing the reader refers is about.
Wendy Portillo, a teacher at Morningside Elementary
School in Port St. Lucie, who was suspended from her job
after she allowed her class to vote out one of its students. The


student was later diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, a.


student was later diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, a,

Kudos for Kelsey

I have just read with interest your article on Kelsey
Moore. Only once before in my years of attending Broad-
way plays have I experienced the overwhelming excite-
ment of a young star such as Kelsey and that was many .
years ago when I first heard the voice of Barbra Streisand.
Yes, I compare Kelsey to Barbra Streisand.
I first watched Kelsey perform in "Chorus Line" and then
again in "Annie" and was mesmerized by her voice and
overall talent.
For such a young talent, she knows how to draw an audi-
ence right into her soul. That is a talent few have, especial-
ly at such a young age.
Please let Kelsey know that she has fans. Go girl! Follow
your dreams.

Median mess

In reference to the poorly designed widening ofU.S 1 in
Fort Pierce. There was a retro-renovated U-turn at Virginia
Avenue, but it has demolished the bike lane. The planning
committee is obviously asleep: .

City of scumbags?

I'm traveling through Port St. Lucie, afd I-must admit I
have not seen a city this bad since I lived in New Jersey.
Everywhere I look I see illegal aliens and scum bags from
up north. It's a scumbag little town full of people with no
shirts on and tattoos.
To those who run the city, it's going down the tubes.

Stop high-toning

I wish something were said about the employees at city
hall who act like they are so big and they high-tone people
and act like they are royalty. There are layers of secretaries,
you can't get to a city hall member and people are suffer-
ing. Everyday people tell me how hard up they are. Why
can't city employees cut back on their salaries? And cut out
all that waste and cut back on their staff and help us tax-
payers out.
I'm sorry for those who are so hard up. The way.the peo-
ple in those jobs talk to customers has to stopI

EMT service is tops

My friend from Michigan fell and cracked her head open
and the EMTs got here really quickly and helped her out
and even cleaned up. I Wanted to say thank you.

When I was a kid...

I walked back and forth from school four times a day, for
more than 2 miles when I was a kid.

Each year I have
written a valentine to
my husband, Roy,
telling you about his
struggle with Alzheimer's
and Parkinson's disease.
As many of you know,
Roy lost his courageous
battle on Sept. 13, 2008,
but I am continuing the
tradition, because there is
much more to say.
Feb. 12 would have been
Roy's 81st birthday. In the
nearly 35 years I knew Roy,
he was the kindest person I
knew, with the strongest
sense of social justice. He
saw Gandhi speak and
marched against the
imprisonment of Nelson
Mandela. Even as he
declined, he still fought for
what was right.
Last Valentine's Day,
decked out in a pink shirt,


ALIVE
& WELL
SHELLEY KOPPEL


he went to the day center
he attended twice a week.
When he came home and I
asked him about what I
hoped would be a fun day,
he began to cry. I finally
got the story from him.
Another rider on his bus
was giving the driver a
hard time verbally,
because there'd been a
delay and they were
running late. Roy hated
bullies and scorned people
who took out their anger
and frustrations at people
who could not answer
back. He told the man to


stop it and the man
became verbally abusive to
Roy.
In the past, with British
understatement and
humor, he would have put
the man in his place. Ill, he
stood up for the driver, but
it took a toll.
Our anniversary was Jan.
4 and that was a very hard
day for me. I suspect Roy's'
birthday and Valentine's
Day will be hard, too. I will
do something special to
remember him.
Five years ago, we lost a
tree to Hurricane Frances
and I was very upset. Roy
planted a tree we had
brought from up north
with us in its place. It has
grown in the last five years.
This year, I am sur-
rounding it with stones
and mulch and making a


plaque that will say "Roy's
Tree." It is my way of
honoring him and letting
him know that I-have not
forgotten his special day.
As I mentioned once
before, Roy always called
his mother on his birthday
to thank her for giving him
life. Life was so precious to
Roy and he loved it and
lived it fully. I can't call him
on his birthday but I can
tell him how lucky I was to
have had him in my life.
Happy birthday, Roy. I
love you and miss you
more than words can say.

Valentine's Day tributes


The letters below, and the
column by chief photogra-
pher Mitch Kloorfain, are in
response to a request from
Hometown News. We
wanted to hear about your
love stories.
Here's what we received, so
enjoy and happy Valentine's
Day.

Miraculous pup
looking for love this
Valentine's Day
This year on Valentine's
Day I have a female on my
mitd and I don't even mind
her big ears or bad breath.
I met Bissyjust last week,
but one meeting was all it
took to loose my heart. Just
one nuzzle from her ice-
cold nose and a happy lick
and I was a goner.
You guessed it, Bissy is a
puppy, but not one like
you've ever met before. She's
only 7 months old, but she's
seen more of the ugliness of
the world than most dogs "
have to endure in a lifetime,
thankfully.
Originally adopted as a
puppy from a shelter in
Indiana, Bissy somehow
found her way to Florida
and through some unfortu-
nate circumstances, became
homeless, malnourished
almost to the point of no
return and suffered from
serious neglect.
When St. Lucie County
Animal Control Officer
Linda Shaw found the boxer
mix, Bissy was curled up
under a carport, starving to
death and had so many fleas
and skin infections they
nearly cost the poor pup her
life.
By all accounts Bissy, who
had been neglected and
unloved, should have hated
people. But this little miracle
puppy, who has already
beaten the odds by surviv-
ing, is friendly, enthusiastic
and so loving that even
without a bit of fur on her
once-emaciated body, she's
warm and cuddly and steals
:'* 411


the heart of everyone with
whom she comes into
contact.
That's exactly what
happened to me when I met
Bissy and I pride myself on
not being an easy sell or too
soft a touch.
Bissy will be on medica-
tions and under the care of a
veterinarian for some time
to come, but she's ready to
become the perfect valen-
tine if you have a heart big
enough to accommodate
this little dynamo, who
comes with a little bit of
baggage and unconditional
love for the next several
years.
Humane Society Shelter
manager Dave Robertgon
says Bissy has stolen their
hearts at the shelter too, so
much so that the shelter is
willing to waive all adoption
fees, update her vaccina-
tions and microchip and
spay her at no charge.
But that's not all. They'll
also waive the cost of the
remainder of her treatment
for the skin issues she'll face
(though her fur will grow
back and she'll probably be
a lovely brindle color when
it does), provide her with
collars, brushes, food and a
water bowl and even a bag
of food and some of her
favorite toys so Bissy can
have a second chance at life
with an owner who loves her
as much as she loves them.
Last year 10,000 animals
came through the St. Lucie
County Humane Society,
900 more than had been
through the shelter during
the previous year.
Mr. Robertson says the
shelter has great supporters
and a superb adoption
team, with satellite adoption
sites at Petco in St. Lucie
West and PetsMart in
Tradition.
Those efforts along
with the love of a caring
community- have helped
the shelter continue to
adopt animals despite the
difficult economic times
that are causing many to

home will be the.conclusion of her rehabilitation.


lose their homes and their
beloved pets.
If, by chance, you're
looking for love this Valen-
tine's Dayand you want to
find someone who will love
you no matter how you look,
what you wear, how badly
you sing or even when
you've just come home from
a tough day and you're not
at your freshest or in your
most pleasant frame of
mind, yotdmight want to
stop by the Humane Society
and see if you can meet my
friend, Bissy.
She just happens to be
looking for someone else to
love and I promise, you
won't find a girl more loyal
or loving anywhere else.
And if she's not your
perfect match, don't fret. She
has a few friends in the


neighborhood that might be
just exactly what you're
looking for. Consider it a
valentine's gift to you from
me and Bissy.

Tattoo artist for 30 years


restores faces


By Jay Meisel
meisel@hometownnewsol.com
Dawn Sharbuno, a St.
Lucie County resident,
never expected the
heartache she would suffer
after adopting a dog.
For a long time, Roscoe
was her best friend, but on
April 26, 2007, that all
changed.
All of a sudden, the dog
without provocation ripped
off most of her face.
"The next thing I know,
my face was in my hand,"
she said.
Although a surgeon reat-
tached her face, the result
wasn't perfect, Ms. Shar-
buno said.
'She turned to Linda "Lady
Fish" Frank, a Port St. Lucie
businesswoman who spe-
cializes in permanent make-
up and tattoos.
Ms. Frank realigned her
face, using permanent
make-up techniques.
"She's great," Ms. Shar-
buno said of Ms. Frank.
Ms. Frank, who owns
Always Perfect Permanent
Make-up at 897A N.E. Prima
Yista Blvd,, is i rating 30
years of tattooing and per-
manent makeup.
Permanent makeup uses
tattoos to produce designs
that resemble makeup. It
can be used for eye lining
and to enhance colors to the
skin of the face, lips and eye-
lids.
She learned the art of tat-
tooing from her former hus-
band, Danny Frank, who
died in 2008.
When they opened a busi-
ness in Fort Pierce in 1978,
she said, they were the first
tattoo artist couple in the
county.
"Back then it was rare to
have a woman in the,tattoo
business," she said.
After she and her husband
divorced, she said, the fami-
ly had three tattoo business'.
es.
Her ex-hsbhand, who
remained a lifelong friend,
had his; she opened one and
her son, Daneal Frank, start-
ed Beyond Reality Tattoo in
Port St. Lucie.
"It's in the genes," she
said.
She.learned, after getting
into the business, that one
of her grandfathers had

company from repaying
the debt.
In its withdrawal plan
submitted to state insur-
ance regulators for
approval, State Farm offi-
cials say the company is
likely to become insolvent
by 2011. It could reach its
demise even sooner they
say, if its policyholders sus-
tain hurricane damage
around $175 million before
then.
State regulators are likely
to decide by April whether
they'll allow the company
to withdraw as planned.
But in the meantime,
several St. Lucie County
policyholders have begun
to shop competitors.
Agents say these callers
are inquiring about mov-
ing all their 'coverage -
and not just homeowner's
policies to other carri-


ers.
"They're saying that if
State Farm won't write
their houses, then they'll
move all their business
elsewhere," Mr. Pellicano
said.
But the move doesn't
bode well for State Farm
agents, such as Mr. Rains,
who's worked with the
company for 28 years and
has more than 2,225 clients
across the Treasure Coast.
"There's a misconcep-
tion that State Farm will be
canceling policies within
the, next,90 days, which is
not true," he said.
Under state law, the
insurer must give six
months notice to policy-
holders, if it opts not to
renew their policies. This
means that if State Farm
gets the approval of state
regulators by April, the pol-
icy cancellations could
:begin by October.
"I'm hoping the state
comes up with a more


long-range solution," Mr.
Rains said.
Meanwhile, competing
agents are urging policy-
holders to measure their
options.
They advise owners of
waterfront property, for
,instance, to confirm that
they won't need new cover-
age within the next few
months.
Waiting until April or
May to find a new carrier
could prove impossible, as
many companies stop
issuing new policies at the
start of hurricane season,
they advise.
But for policyholders in
safer zones, Mr. Pellicano is
suggesting they wait to see
how Florida regulators
respond to the State Farm
request.
"That's a tough call," he
said. "You just don't want to
be shopping for insurance
after June 1, but if you're
inland, you're in a better
position to hold off a little."

done tattoos.
Ms. Frank considers her-
self an artist, restoring faces
as people age. She said skin
colors and other features
change as people grow
older. She also does por-
.traits, some hanging on the
walls in her office.
Using pigments, she said,
she restores facial features,
including providing
enhanced eyebrows and
fuller lips.
Permanent makeup can
also be used. to enhance
breasts, particularly for
women who've had breast
surgery and help people
with scars.
In the case of Ms. Shar-
buno,' Ms. Frank had
applied permanent make-
up before the dog attack.
And that remained.
"Because of the makeup
they were able to recon-
struct her face," Ms. Frank
said.
Sandy Reiss, another


client who had permanent
makeup two years ago, said
she had problems with eye
makeup.
The permanent makeup
has fixed that, she said.
"It's much cheaper than
plastic surgery.You're doing
something for yourself,"
Mrs. Reiss said.
"She's an artist," Mrs.
Reiss said of Ms. Frank.
Ms. Frank said the per-
manent makeup can easily'
make someone look 10 or
more years younger. 'She
has clients of all ages, even
a woman in her 90s, she
said..

Nowadays, the busses stop every couple of blocks, while
parents sit in the cars waiting with the kids. Isn't it a waste of
taxpayer's money? With all these new sidewalks, can't the
kids walk to the bus stops? No wonder Americans are so
lazy.

We're not all techies
I say amen to the person who spoke up for those of us
who don't have computers. There are contests and things 'd
like to order, which are available only by computer. I con-
sider it discrimination against many of us that can't afford
to get a computer or those of us that are elderly and unable
to learn all for things needed to use one. Why can't we be
given an address or a phone number to call?

Surprise, you won


Staff photo by Jay Meisel
Susan Sarno and Shirley Melachrinoudis of.CruiseOne present Julie Moore, a teacher at Weatherbee Elementary
School with an early Valentine's Day gift on Feb. 8. She received flowers from'Giordano's, chocolates from Bruno's
Chocolate Creations and a five-day west Caribbean cruise that her husband, Nathan, won last weekend at the Trea-
sure Coast Home Expo. The cruise will begin Dec. 12 and Ms. Sarno will donate $50 from each booking to the Boy's
and Girl's Club of St. Lucie County. Mrs. Moore also received a gift of a massage from April Martin.


Shelters
From page A1
Department believes it has
the resources to operate
only one special needs
shelter beginning with the
2009 hurricane season,"
Mr. Lee wrote in Novem-
ber.
"In the past, we have
staffed two special needs
shelters, one at Dan
McCarty Middle School
and the other at the Port
St. Lucie Community Cen-
ter.
"Both facilities accom-
modate approximately 200
clients. Now that the
Havert L. Fenn Center is
available as the county
special needs shelter, with
capacity of 500 clients plus
their caregivers, it will
require all our personnel
to adequately staff the
Fenn Center at maximum
capacity," Mr. Lee wrote.
The Fenn Center, with its
proximity to Lawnwood
Regional Medical Center
and Heart Institute and its'


ability to withstand a Cate-
gory 5 hurricane, is ideal
for a shelter, he wrote.
SShould Port St. Lucie
want its own shelter, he
said, it could follow the
example of other counties,
such as Pasco, where a
shelter is staffed by a
home health agency
because of lack of health
department staff.
But Mr. Kelly said he
believes Port St. Lucie may
have more than 200 spe-
cial needs patients. During
2004, he said, some
showed up. at another
shelter.
Donald Freedland, the
city's emergency manage-
ment coordinator, will
meet with county officials
to discuss the issue.
Mr. Cooper said he does-
n't think it's likely the
county will change the
decision.
Mr. Freedland said that
having one shelter in Fort
Pierce may be a hardship
to some people, as typical-
ly their caregivers drive
them to the shelter.

TRAVEL


Using travel as an idea for a fundraiser


any of us are
involved in
fundraising in
some form or another.
Whether you are part of
the planning or participat-
ing in an event, we all pretty
much know why we need to
fundraise: money!
Our churches and schools
(public or.private), as well
as local and national
organizations, are in need
of money to function.
Those involved are always
looking for new and clever
ways to.raise enough of it.
I recently wrote about
traveling with a group and
how beneficial it can be.
Today I would like to
touch on using group travel
as a fundraising event. This
is very near and dear to my
heart, since most of my
adult life has been involved
with local nonprofit and
charitable organizations,
churches and schools to
help raise the necessary
funds for their individual
needs.
Group travel is a great
way to fundraise. You get
the benefit of traveling with
others and enjoying your
trip, all while raising money
for something that you care
about.

TRAVEL
PATTY TOPPA


About eight years ago I
created a program through
my office called "travel for a
cause" and it has helped
many local organizations
make money through
travel.
I look at it this way:
people travel anyway, so
why not travel for a cause.
This entails a partnership of
sorts between our company
and the organization, 'not
just for group travel, but
any travel the organization
sends our way generates a
donation.
We have assisted in
fundraising from local high
schools to out-of-state
college alumni groups,
garden and bridge clubs.
Each has grown every year
to include more partici-
pants.
It takes a lot of time and
effort to fundraise and, with
money so tight for most, we
have to be creative in the
process. If you get a group
together and travel at the,
same time there is "money
to be had."'
There are so many

options for travel, therefore,
giving the organization
creative latitude. You can
create a theme cruise that
gets the attention of more
than your close supporters;
possibly entice a person of
fame or recognition to be
on board to get additional
reservations into your
group. A local artist,
musician, speaker, etc.
would generate interested.
participants, therefore
creating more bookings and
raising more money.
Group travel, if done right
(choose the best times and
dates of travel, the right
travel company or cruise
line, etc.), can turn into
dollars. Cruises are favored
because of their inclusive-
ness, but certainly any
travel can be turned into a
fundraiser.
A cruise group is based
on a minimum of eight
double occupancy state-
rooms. A tour is generally
based on a minimum of 20.
passengers traveling
together. This, of course, is
just a rule-of- thumb and by
researching various travel
options for your particular
group, this is where the
expertise comes in.
Most fundraising groups
really do not cost the
participant any more than
it would if they chose to

travel alone. In many cases,
they get additional ameni-
ties as well. The longer the
trip and the cost, the more
money raised. The biggest
issue is deciding on the
where and when. Once that
has been established, it is
up to the organization to
get people excited about it.
The formula for funds
depends on the travel
company used, but as an
example, an organization
that has 50 passengers
sailing on a seven-night
cruise with all passengers
paying $1,000 per person
can actually raise up to
$4,000 depending on the
ship and sailing date.
It is worth the time and
effort you put into it, which
is nothing more than
planning the cruise and
getting the information out
to your supporters.
So the next time you are
asked to help out with
fundraising mention that
you have this great idea for
a fundraiser. Travel for your
organization, school or
church.

From page A17
took four months from
October 1988 to February
1989 for her to go on a date
with me. Our first official
date was onValentine's Day
1989. I think that over the
next few months she slowly
began to fall in love with me.
For me it had been love at
first sight, but the feeling
took a little while longer for
her.
Discovering things we had
in common, our love for the
beach, the water, the
outdoors and our love of
nature, were just a few of the
reasons that we felt God has
brought us together.
We were married at the
Jupiter Lighthouse on June
30, 1990. On Dec. 6, 199.1, we
were blessed with our
daughter, Marissa. Since
that time, we have not only
been lovers, but best friends.
Jan is not only my best
friend today, but she is the
best friend I've ever had in
my whole life. Every time I
am down she is always there
to lift me up. During my
working career, she gave up
her own to devote time to
raising our daughter and
keeping our home. She
always encouraged me and
during some of the most
difficult times in my life, she .
has never left my side.
A fewyears ago I became
disabled and it was more
difficult for me to get
around. She has always
been devoted to me and to
out daughter no matter
what.
Last Easter, she was
diagnosed with ovarian
cancer in its' fourth and
most deadly stage. It was
now my opportunity to
show her the same uncondi-
tional love and encourage-
ment that she has always
shown me.
Although the expectations
of the doctors in this comntN '
were limited, we took the
chance and went to H. Lee
Moffitt Cancer Treatment
Center. After major opera-
tions and extensive
chemotherapy treatments,

Jan was diagnosed with cancer several months earlier.
Rick shaved his head after Jan lost her hair in treatment.


and after almost 30
overnight trips to Tampa,
my wife and best friend is
cancer free. She is one of the
5 percent who survived what
is called the "silent killer."
Although we do not know
what the future holds, our
family appreciates every
day, treating each one as
though it could be our last
one together.
God only gives all of us
one day at a time and I feel
blessed and privileged that
he gives me each day with
Ian. Not only did she teach
me what love was and how
to love unconditionally, but
she is probably the bravest
and strongest woman I have
ever known.
For 19 years, my life has
been like a dream. As we get


older, I realize that things
are going to happen to all of
us, but I also know that
together good will always
win over evil and that true
love like ours never fails.
We discovered that the
same road that helped me
fall asleep when I was a boy,
was the same road ny wife
would travel as a child. I
don't think it's all that
strange that 30 years later
we would meet.
To Jan: You are my lover,
and my best friend and I
love you until the end.
Love you always and
forever, Rick

Tribute
From page A 18
Love the second
time around
I was a happily married
New Jersey resident and
when I retired in 1973, my
wife and I decided to move
to Florida.
We enjoyed our life here
together for more than 14
happy years, but the
happiness for me ended in
1999 when my dear wife
died. Then, according to her
wishes, I took her body back
to New Jersey for burial.
After the funeral I
returned to Florida, but the
loneliness Ipade it unten-
able, so after a few months,
I sold the house and moved
back to New Jersey where I
could visit the cemetery on
a daily basis, and live in
close proximity to one of my
sons and his family. This
arrangement continued for
about two years.
One day, toward the end of
this time, I met a former
high school fellow student
who told me that he visited
a local senior center on a
daily basis to have lunch
and socialize with other
retirees. He invited me to
attend and I accepted.
When we got to the
center, I was required, as a
I~ill~ll~illMIMAi


first time visitor, to sign in
and fill out a membership
application. To do this I had
to see the club secretary,
and when I did, my sad,
lonely 85-year-old heart
started beating again.at the
sight of this vision of
loveliness who held this
office.
Needless to say, I signed
up arid attended on a daily
basis, not only for the lunch
and fellowship, but also for
the heartwarming thrill of
seeing the beautiful secre-
tary. I learned that her
name was Margaret, but she
preferred to be called Peggy,
and she had been a widow
for 19 years.
I worshipped from afar
for several months before I
summoned up the courage
to ask for a dinner date. She
was a hard sell, but after a
few polite refusals, she
finally agreed. We had our
first date on Valentine's Day,


and that was the turning
point in my previously
lonely life. I kept on my best
behavior, and after about a
year of courtship, I pro-
posed and she accepted my
request for us to become
married.
My daughter, Judy, who
lived in La Jolla, Calif., was
delighted for me, and
insisted we have the
wedding at her house, a
lovely home, perched on a
mountain overlooking the
Pacific Ocean. We agreed,
and on Aug. 23, 2003'we
were married.
We returned to New
Jersey, but after a few
months I successfully
persuaded Peggy into giving
up her life long residence
there and move to Stuart.
Since then, we have been
living happily ever after.

Sy B helley Koppel


Entertainment writer
FORT PIERCE The
Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
was formed in 1966 as a
jug band. More. than 40
years later, while the cast
has changed, the three
original members, Jeff
Hanna, Jimmie Fadden
and John McEuen, are
still performing.
Late-comer Bob Car-
penter, who joined the
group in the 1970s,
rounds out the quartet.
The Grammy-winning
band, responsible for hits
such as "Mr. Bojangles"
and three "Will the Circle
Be Unbroken" albums,
comes to the Sunrise
Theatre on Feb. 25. Mr.
Carpenter spoke about
their music'- and the
artists who have influ-
enced them.
The band defies easy
description, with ele-
ments of country, blue-
grass, rock and folk. Mr.
Carpenter, the group's
keyboard player and
vocalist, understands the
group is not easy to cate-
gorize.
"I. think, through 42
years, we're a cross-sec-
tion of American music,"
he said. "It's hard for-us to
be pigeon-holed into
pop, country or Ameri-
cana. The best descrip-
tion is traditional Ameri-


can music using tradi-
tional American instru-
ments like banjos, man-
dolins and harmonicas."
The group has had
many -successful- collabo-
rations, begihninig with
the first album, "Will the
Circle Be Unbroken,"
released in 1971. It
included Earl Scruggs,
Roy Acuff and Mother
Maybelle Carter.
They released two
more "Circle" albums,
featuring stars such as
Johnny Cash, Chet
Atkins, Emmylou Harris
and Bruce Hornsby;
For Mr. Carpenter,
those are special memo-
ries. He / particularly
treasures working with
Chet Atkins, Johnny Cash
and the Carter and
Scruggs families,
"We.were close to the
Scruggs family since they
day we began," he said.
"Most of the members

"That's what the 'Circle'
albums afforded us," Mr..
Carpenter said. "We had
a wide background -of
musical experience. It

Papa Louie feels like SU


home, tastes
By Samantha Joseph -
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
ST. LUCIE COUNTY It was a
great feeling on one of the coldest
nights of the year to rush from the
cold into a warm dining room with
red brick walls and air heavywith the
smell of garlic and hot dinner rolls.
Not a bad first impression of Papa
Louie's Restaurant, a welcome sur-
prise at the comer of U.S. 1 and Rio
Mar Boulevard in Port St. Lucie.
Inside, diners are paired up or
scattered in boisterous groups, talk-
ing and laughing. Coats hang casual-
ly over booths, and steam rises from
soup bowls at several tables. At the
table nearest to the door, a woman
adds sugar to her partner's hot drink.
A patron waiting to be seated
laughs loudly as we huddle in, bun-
dled inseveral layers of clothing.
"Cold enough out there for you?"
she asked.
There was nothing subtle about
this place. The glasses of water are
gigantic. A bottle of wine advertises
itself on a ledge near a booth. Diners
joke easily with the staff.
There's something comfortingly
familiar here.


even better
"We try to make everyone feel at
home," said Sue Manfredi, who's run
the restaurant for about 20 years with
her husband, Lou.
And this place is so comfortable
that it could easily feel like home,
except home's not a bustling Italian
joint, where pasta dishes, subs and
pizza were hot and ready on a cold,
night.
The hostess wastes no time usher-
ing us to a cozy booth and tells us
what's good tonight.
The lentil soup has been getting
rave reviews, she says, no surprise as
the temperature outside plummets.
The pasta fagioli, a traditional Ital-
ian soup, is rich and hearty with
pasta and beans. It garners an enthu-
siastic thumbs-up from .ny dining.
companion, who is enthralled
enough to consider skipping the
entr6e in lieu of another soup.
I bypass the appetizers because
I'm dying to try the Papa Louie's spe-
cial, a pizza piled high with as many
toppings as the chef can fit on the
dough.
There's sausage, pepperoni, Italian
meatballs, onions, peppers and

want the race is half run. You
finish what you start. You
have come a long way the
past year. Don't stop now.
The finish line is in sight. This
simple plan will carry you
safely and happily through
life and continue to bring
many new and wonderful
rewards in the coming days
and months ahead.
Libra Sept 23-Oct. 22
The universal presence in you
constantly inspires you to do
your best. You wake up each
day with joy and hope in your
heart. More good is on the
way. You love to help and
,show others the way to live a
rich full life. You don't ask for
much for yourself. Why?
Because your true values are
more in the spiritual realm
than the earthly.
Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Upon arising, make the fol-
lowing affirmation out loud
each day. "I listen to my
divine inner guidance and
the visions received always
guide me toward truth. I trust
in the universe to supply me
all I need to live, laugh and
prosper. I live life to the
fullest and give thanks for my
many blessings. For all this I
am eternally grateful." Now
even more is on the way.

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Your accumulated wisdom
and experience will propel
you even further on toward
your life goals in the coming
year. You have a lot of good
feelings and goodwill in your
heart. Listen closely to them
and they will help you make,
wise choices that prove right
and serve you well over time.
Great joy is on the way.
Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Keeping.a lighter touch will
always keep you focused and
sharp. Your life is always tak-
ing new turns. There will be a
few surprises but you will
enjoy pleasant endings. Your
healing and creative powers,.
are increasing. Set your goals
and place a time limit on
achieving them and every-
thing will fall in place as
.planned.

Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Your life is like a grand
adventure. Nothing is ordi-
nary with you. Go further and
bring your higher visions into
reality. Give your large imagi-
nation free reign. You are a
springboard for positive
change. Pay close attention
to the inspirations coming up
from your inner well. Dare to
be different and unlimited
results are yours for the ask-
ing.

Pisces Feb. 19-March 20

getting extra help, call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. TTY/TDD users should call 1-877-486-2048. You can also call the Social

More tips on how to live a


Editor's note: This is the
second part of a two part
series.
There are three impor-
tant questions I ask
clients and friends
who visit me for spiritual
counseling.
The first is, "Where are
you centered? Are you
fi llhi% i'iilg iii heart, doing
the things you love that
make you happy or'have
you allowed the world or
negative people to pullyou
outside and stress or burn
you out and drain all your
spirit and energy?"


if you allow the latter to
happen, it is similar to
shorting out and discharg-
ing a battery.
The second question I ask
is, "What is your cause or
primary purpose? What is
your mission or dream?"
I posed this question to
several hundred people who
visited me recently at the
South Florida Fair. This may
sound unreal, but only one
in 10 were able to give me a
positive answer in response.
The third question is to
locate the areas that are
causing a person to be
blocked, stuck, sidetracked

The one overriding

I believtthat the same
process is necessary in the
spiritual selse. When we
write down tur dream or
purpose we rake a com-
mitment to oir life's work
and destiny. Wkmove the
energy from thtmind or
fear when we crate a
written statemeh of our
intention. Then, 'hen the
world begins to pil us
sideways, the valuale
written commitmenpulls
us back and moves u:
forward again.
A person without thi
focus is like a ship witlhut a
rudder. It or we go arouidl
in circles and end up on ie
rocks. People ask me, "Hov
do I find my purpose?" The
best way I have ever found,
is to keep a journal or diary.
After a while, you will see
patterns of repetition of
important ideas. This is
important information
coming from ydur inner
being trying to get your
attention. These are valu-
able clues to your true
purpose once you begin to
see the patterns forming.
The most important thing
we ever do in life is go
inside; find our true calling,'
bring it out and set it free.
The way to tell if life is
working right is to ask
ourselves, "How happy am
I?" Are you following your
heart? If the answer is no,
how can you expect to be
happy? Happiness lives in
the heart. The heart is the


home of our inner child.
Just because we grow up
and become adults with all
the responsibilities that go
with adulthood, doesn't
mean we don't stillhave that
youthful boy or girl spirit
inside us with the need for
joy and happiness.
Are yoi in touch with
your inner child? A child's
work is play. How often do
you take time out to do fun
things? How long has it
been since you told some-
one a funny story and made
them laugh? When we cheer
someone else up, we are
cheered up in return. It is
the simple pleasures of life
that are .the most rewarding.
My greatest desire is that
you find the way to follow
your heart, find your
purpose and refuse to let
negativity cause it to be
wasted. You can do it. The
potential lives in everyone
on earth.
When you find it, take
tare of your own and family
reeds first. Then give back .
tcothers searching for their
case and happiness, Pass
thetorch of truth to the next
generation. This is a magnif-
icen life well lived and
entirdy within your means
to accomplish. It is never
too late to start. Take it one
day at a tiie. Your happi-
ness, purpose and success
are now assured. Yours is
now a great new and better
life.

Company

marks

sixth year
For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
TREASURE COAST -
Spread the Word, a pub-
lic relations firm for
nonprofit organizations,
will celebrate its sixth
anniversary on Feb. 25.
The company works
exclusively with church-
es and nonprofit organi-
zations and, taking that
into consideration,
Brenda French is
thrilled to still be
"spreading the word."
Ms. French opened
the company in 2003 to
assist churches and
nonprofit organizations
in keeping the commu-
nity informed about
their special programs,
services and needs
through public service
campaigns.
"I owe special thanks
to the churches and
organizations that have
trusted me to submit
their information and all
the people in the media
for passing the informa-
tion on to the communi-
ty through their publica-
tions, radio and
television programs,
and Web sites," Ms.
French said.
She feels local church-
es and nonprofit organi-
zations do wonderful
things for the communi-
ty, including youth pro-
grams and senior active,
ties, feeding the hungry,
bringing national -and"
international speakers
and entertainment to
the area, assisting those
in need and more.
i Through Spread the
Word, Ms. Frehch is able
to sit down with those
that niake the-e things
,happen anidforward the
details to the local
media.
"The media may have
a steady stream of bad
news bombarding them,
but they are wonderful
about including these
events and special serv-
ices in their community
calendars and often
expanding the coverage
with interviews, articles
and photos," she said.
As the company
begins its seventh year,
Ms. 'French looks for-
ward to assisting even
more churches and non-
profits.

Baseball team looks to start new tradition


By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST. LUCIE Two
years ago, the'Port St. Lucie
baseball team made it to the
Class 5A championship
game in Sarosota only to
come up little bit short.
This season, Tony Malizia
and the Jaguars hope to
serve up some "home cook-
ing"' as the Florida High
School Athletic Association
Finals come to their own
backyard at Tradition Field.
"We're looking very good,"
Malizia said. "Our practices
are going very well.
"We know what we need
to do this year."
Coming into the 2009 sea-
son, the Jaguars are in better
shape then they were a year
ago, when Malizia had the
uneviable task of replacing
12 seniors off the state final-
ist squad. The team strug-
gled at times and finished
14-15 in just Malizia's sec-
ond losing season and first
since his inaugural cam-
paign as varsity coach.
S"We normally just gradu-
Sate four or five guys," Mal-
izia said. "We had to replace
the entire infield and two
outfield p,,sitiLnL. We
returned just two starters.
"It was tough. The majori-
ty of the game' is played on
the infield. We had our share
of growing pains, but the
guys did a good job of step-
.)ing up" .
SOne, constant through
arguably Port St. Lucie's
most successful three-year
Srun has been Steve McGee.

opposition's, the senior, and
future Seminole has quietly
become of the state's best
catchers.
"He's been great," Malizia
said. "He started for us as a
freshman, which we never
had happen before. He
broke the school record for
batting average last year at
.537.
"He's a team leader on and
off the field."
Another player Malizia
will be counting on to pro-
vide a dose of senior leader-
ship is Jesse Hunter. On var-
sity for his fourth season,
Hunter gained valuable
experience on the mound
during Port St. Lucie's cam-
paign two years ago ,and
continued to impress last
year.
The southpaw got the
start in the season opener
and allowed just one hit
while striking out eight in
five innings in the Jaguars'
6-1 win ,over Fort Pierce
Westwood.
Hunter tdok the mound
again against Fort Pierce
Central and went the dis-
tance, pit 'ing a two-hitter

man," L .zi said. "He can
throw ':',ie -%dUi his fast-
ball, curveball anid change
up and at ariy time in the
count.
"He has very good control.
He only had '10 walks last
year in 50-plus innings."-
Another player to keep an
eye on this season is Cory
Reid. The sophomore
turned heads as a freshman
and Malizia is anxiously
awaiting his arrival from the
basketball tear.
"He was a big surprise for
us last year," Malizia said.
"He was our starting short-
stop. and has 'a very, very

talent and keeps getting bet-

Malizia should -know.
Spotting and developing tal-

his run with the Jaguars.

To lose weight, be careful what you drink


Hello smart shoppers.
How are those New
Year's resolutions
going?
The No. 1 resolution made
is to lose weight. Many of
you are cutting back on the
amount of fattening food
and junk food you eat and
see the scale moving so
slowly that by this time you
tell yourself, what's the use,
it must be my metabolism
or I'm just big boned.
Remember, it's not what
you eat, it's how you prepare
what you eat, which is the
basis for my column and my
cookbook; that's why I give
you choices.
For some reason, when
you're dieting, many times
you pay attention to what
you eat, not what you drink.
Sugar is the major carbohy-
drate we consume. Check
out your soft drinks.
One teaspoon of sugar
equals 4.2 grams. One 12-

ounce can of Coke contains
39 grams of sugar. Do the
math; that's about nine.
teaspoons of sugar. Pepsi
contains 41 grams, that's
almost 10 teaspoons in one
can. Other soft drinks aren't
much better and when it
comes to sweetened iced
Stea, I don't even want to
know.
The human body is
amazing, but can fool you
while you think you're doing
things right. Research shows
that while artificial sweeten-
ers make drinks diet
friendly, if you have more
that two cans a day, the
body starts reading it as
sugar.


If you substituted 1 glass
of unsweetened iced tea for
one can of soda a day, you
would lose an average of 15
pounds in a year.
We are addicted to sugar,
as well as salt, and type-2
diabetes and high blood
pressure are rampant. Sugar
is not bad, it's the quantity
that makes it bad.
Fruits contain a natural
sugar (fructose). It is now
made in a granulated form
and today it is made from'
corn syrup.
Here's an interesting fact:
it has almost twice the
sweetening power of
granulated sugar, so you
would use half of what you
usually do. It doesn't seem
to be absorbed in the body
the same way as regular
sugar. You can find it by the
pound in large supermar-
kets and health food stores
and it is affordable.
This week's recipe is a


perfect example of how to
prepare what you eat and
make a difference.

The Guru's special hint:
Tired of glasses coming out
of the dishwasher with
baked on stuff? Tuck a small
container in the top rack,
right side up. to catch the
debris.

This sauce can be made

you don't have the time or

much better.
A friend who was born in
northern Italy (Genoa) gave
me the recipe years ago.
Recently I made it healthy
by using low-fat or fat-free
cream cheese and skim
milk, evaporated skim milk,
undiluted or fat-free half
and half. You will eliminate
most of the cholesterol and
saturated fat, but none of
the flavor.
If you choose to use
pignoli (pine) nuts I
prefer my sauce without
them, they give the sauce a
sandy texture toast and
finely chop them. Use about
1/4-cup nuts.
NOTE: There is no
suitable substitute for
imported Italian Parmesan
cheese. A butcher shop or
deli will have it at the best
price and grate it for free.
Keep a little in the fridge
and extra in the freezer,
since it can turn moldy.

County program


seeks applicants


for free services


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
St. Lucie County and
INTACT, the county's long-
term recovery organiza-
tion, are seeking appli-
cants for its low-income
hurricane home harden-
ing program..
Under the My Safe
Florida Home program,
low-income residents who
own their own homes and
have a homestead exemp-
tion may be eligible.
The program goal is to
provide homeowners with
not only a free home wind
inspection, but also the
assistance needed to
strengthen their homes
against future storms.
Home improvements
such as hurricane shut-
ters, exterior/garage
doors, gable end bracing
and secondary water


barriers can lead to
reductions in homeown-
ers' insurance premiums
by reducing the home's
risk of damage during a
hurricane.
Participating homeown-
ers will receive free home
inspections to determine
improvements that can
strengthen their homes
against future hurricane
damage.
Once the inspection is
completed, homeowners
will receive some of the
recommended i'nprove-
ments at no cost.
"Hurricane season is
just around the corner and
we want homeowners to
be safe when the storms
come," said Beth Ryder, St.
Lucie County community
services director.
For more information or
to apply, call (772) 462-

My trip to the PGA Merchandise Show G1l =r


T he best week of 2009
has drawn to a close.
My week with the
"guys" at the PGA Merchan-
dise Show in Orlando is
over.
For me, my time may
have been hectic, running
to and fro, but for you I will
slow things down a bit as I
tell you our story.
The week began in proper
fashion traveling to the
north end of Orlando and
the Legacy Course at Alaqua
Lakes. Here my colleagues
and I would get our week
started on the right foot by
playing in the Tour Edge
multi-media golf event.
Many media drop into
town a couple days prior to
the show's opening to get in
a little golf, gather informa-
tion on new products and
properly set our minds for
the task at hand.
In addition to golf, we
were treated to demonstra-
tions and hands-on testing
of products from Tour Edge,
Sun Mountain and Sky Golf.
Tour Edge introduced us
to several new products.
The company's Exotic line
continues to grow, and this
year we tried the newest
driver, new fairway woods,
hybrids and irons.
David Glod, Tour Edge's
founder, even introduced a.
gorgeous line of precisely-
milled putters.
Sky Golf showed off its
newest hand-held GPS
units. The latest designs are
much smaller than the
original models and have a
plethora of features. The
company has even mapped
more than 95 percent of the
courses in the U.S., each of
which can be easily down-
loaded into your unit.
Sun Mountain showed us
the newest Club Glider and
the latest in fold-up push-
cart technology. There is
finally a cart and bag.that,
will fit in my convertible.
Well, almost.
In the afternoon,.we
:enjoyed a round of golf,
testing the new products
from Tour Edge's Bazooka
and Exotics lines. Our team
even managed a respectable
finish.
After enjoying some fine
food, cigars and beverages
after our round, we were off
to our home for the week.
We have found that the
better the place we find to
putup our feet, the better
our coverage of the show.
This year was no exception.
Our host, Endless Rentals,
put us up in a fantastic
three-bedroom condo at
Vista Cay, just a 3-minute.
drive from the convention
center.
Vista Cay is just one of
many properties in the
Orlando/Kissimmee area
with units managed by
Endless Rentals. For more
information, visit www.end-
lessrentals.com or call (866)
994-4637.
For us, itwas located
conveniently to not only to
the convention center, but
shopping, dining and much
more.
Endless Rentals offers
spacious private homes,
unique townhomes and
luxurious condominiums
within several communities
in the Orlando area. You can
choose from accommoda-
tions ranging from two
bedrooms to seven, each
having full kitchens, large
bedrooms and more.
It's a great way to travel
with a family, and with rates
starting around $100 per
night, it's quite inexpensive
as well. Any readers who
want to book with them will
also receive an additional 10
percent discount by using
the promo code "PGA"
when calling in or booking
online.
I cannot stress enough
the need to have a place to
rest our weary bones after a
day of playing golf, testing


new equipment and
walking the endless aisles at
the show.
That hot tub beside the


GOLF
JAMES
STAMMER


heated pool was a blessing.
We had a huge HD televi-
sion to catch up on the
news and golf from around
the world. Our room even
came with free wireless
Internet, allowing us to use


our laptops to check e-
mails, and handle other
business.
That was only the begin-
ning of the week. Wednes-
day we spent time at the.
Demo Day and tested even
more clubs and accessories.
Then the show itself began
on Thursday.
Between Thursday'and
Sunday morning, I walked
too many miles to count, hit
more clubs than ever,
enjoyed a fantastic meal

Fish are adjusting to the warmer weather, too


The weather has
moderated, the wind
slowed and the best
part is the fish are hungry.
Blue fish are in the surf,
rivers and inlet; you might
say they are everywhere.
On the surf and bridges


it was spoons and mullet
bringing them in. If it has
flash or scent, they are on
it.
In the inlet and the surf,
one cast, one fish. From
the bridges it was minutes
between bites; yes, the

blues like the cooler water.
The surf saw other
species and I am not sure
why some were there. Big
sheephead, big croakers,
even a few flounder made
the show as the water
warmed and the blue fish


moved out.
Clams were the favored
bait this week for the
pompano, with short runs
with no pattern.
Off shore it was sailfish
and plenty of them;
trolling baits and live
baiting and the sails were
there..We had reports from
80 out to 200 feet, both
north and south of the
inlet. That was the zone.
Not big dolphin, but
every one came in with
two or more. They were 10-
pound class fish with a mix
of kingfish. Live bait from
several locations, both
north and south of our
inlets, were hot.
As the water warms keep


a look out for cobia. They
will be hanging out on the
bait schools.
Red fish made an excel-
lent show. They like the
cooler water. Bear Point
and Round Island areas
were the top locations
using live or artificial bait.
Trout were spread out,
some here and there. There
weren't many, but every
angler had some thing to
say. Pompano are every-
where, from the North Fork
to the Cross Roads up into
the Indian River.
Jigging spoons, small jigs
or a shrimp on a jig head,
moved slowly across the
bottom, put plenty in the
boat.


FISHING
HENRY
CAIMATTO


For snook, stay in the
deeper water and present
your baits across the
bottom slowly; be ready to
set the hook. These fish
are still stow from the cold.
They will pick up the bait,
not attack, so pay atten-
tion.

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