School district honors volunteers


By Jay Meisel

ST. LUCIE COUNTY Rachael
Adams spends every day at Francis K.
Sweet Elementary School.
She helps students learn to write,
brings history alive for them and looks
on the Internet for materials to help
them..
But she's not a teacher, she's a vol-"
unteer, with a degree in teaching.
Ms. Adams is one of more than
8,000 St. Lucie County School District
volunteers who received recognition
last week. District officials say the vol-
unteers fill a crucial need, especially
during a time when the budget is
being cut.
Although some volunteers received
individual recognition, such as Ms.
Adams, who was named district Adult
Volunteer of theYear, all are appreciat-
ed, said Susan Helms-Smith, district
volunteer coordinator.
"You're all winners," Ms. Helms-


Smith said. "We know
we couldn't be as suc-
cessful without you,
as we are with you."
The volunteers per-
form a range of
duties, from assisting
teachers to perform-
ing clerical work.
For Ms. Adams,
who lives west of Fort
Pierce, spending time Rachael
in the classroom is a Adams
natural fit.
She has a degree in teaching and
taught in private schools,
But as her children grew, she said,
she decided not to work.
"I wanted to be there for my chil-
dren," she said.
Now, district officials say, she's there
for the children of Frances K. Sweet.
Among other things, she decorates
the classroom and wears costumes to
illustrate stories the pupils are read-
ing.

tion was RitaClements of Port St.
Lucie, who has volunteered for 12
years in the district and currently
spends time at Samuel L. Gaines
Academy.
She greets students, parents and
guests, reforms clerical tasks, helps in
fundraising and reads to students.
Ms. Clements said she started out
volunteering to assist her daughter,

Port St. Lucie looks for ways to tighten belt


By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST. LUCIE With
property values declining,
the city of Port St. Lucie is
looking for ways to cut its
budget, Mayor Patricia
Christensen said last week.
"We are preparing for the


worst," she said at the
monthly coffee with the
mayor program on Feb. 13.
In previous years, she
said, new commercial con-
struction helped a lot with
property tax revenue.
But with less of that, she
said, city officials are looking
at "anything that can possi-


bly be cut."
The plan is "if at all possi-
ble to avoid layoffs," she
said, as the city doesn't want
to increase the unemploy-
ment rate.
"I'm not saying that isn't a
possibility," she added.
City officials also have not
talked about increasing


taxes. She noted that Port St.
Lucie has the next-to- lowest
tax rate of cities with more
than 100,000 in Florida.
The mayor said city offi-
cials will be looking at the
police and recreation
department budgets.
On one hand, she said,
she is reluctant to cut police


department funds, as the
troubled economy has
resulted in more calls for
service.
But, at the same time, she
said, cutting recreation pro-
grams and reducing activi-
ties for youth could lead to

Humane Society is 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
Florida in percent of ani-
mals 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 provid-
ed 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 over population.
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 dedi-
cated to help kindness in
action.

The Humane Society is
located on Savannah Road
in Fort Pierce. For more

PROTECT THE KIDS
SQ: Is tooth decay a problem only for older people?"
A: Though dental health for Americans is generally improving as people take better
care of their teeth, the trend does not necessarily apply to children. Baby tooth decay,
for instance, is on the rise, according to studies. In fact, one federal study found that
decay in baby teeth among children 2 to 5 years old increased from 24 percent in 1988
to 28 percent in 2004. Tooth decay in youngsters can impact their lives in many ways,
ranging from problems when permanent teeth come in to systemic illness that can
arise from infections in the mouth
Leaders of the American Dental Hygienists Association say parents should teach children that the
mouth, just like ears, hands and feet, is a part of the body that needs' to be kept dean. Mothers-to-be
can protect their unborn by taking good care of their own oral health. By doing that they minimize the
possibility of passing decay-causing bacteria to their child. Parents should teach their children-when
the age is right-how to brush and floss and how to watch what they eat, all as way to keep the mouth r "
healthy. Ask your dentist about ways to influence your children in the right directions on oral health.

PEARLS
The largest and rarest of all
pearl oysters, and the one
that produces the finest
pearl nacre, is the South
Sea pearl oyster-the
PINCTADA maxima which
is only found in one isolated
region between North
Australia and Burma. Due
to pollution and over
exploitation, there remain
very few significant wild
oyster beds and theses are
today protected through
diving quotas by the
Australian Government.
Each oyster must be indi-
vidually hand collected by
divers in deep water, or
alternatively maybe grown,
although with great difficul-
ty, in hatcheries and then
returned to the wild for a
number of years, in.order to
allow them to grow .into
adult oysters. These oys-
ters have great value for
their mother-of-pearl inlay
trade as well as for the finer
pearls they produce. The
quality of South Sea cul-
tured pearls is assessed by
five characteristics. These
are luster, complexion,
shape, size and color.
Every pearl is sorted and
graded according to these
virtues, yet when selecting
pearls, it must be remem-
bered that beauty is ulti-
mately in the eye of the
beholder.

But Fort Pierce, although
it's not ready to provide utili-
ty services to the develop-
ment, considers land north
of Midway Road to be part of
its future annexation area,
she said.
The cities are negotiating
the possibility that while Fort
Pierce would annex the land,
Port St. Lucie would provide
utility services, at least until
Fort Pierce can do so, she
said.
But Port St. Lucie wants to
make. sure it receives rev-
enue for the impact the
development will have on
the city, although it would be
part of Fort Pierce, she said.
Residential development
in the Provinces will likely
not occur for several years,
but commercial building
may take place sooner, she
said.
One man attending the
program questioned why
Port St. Lucie would give any
consideration to annexing
the land.
He said the city doesn't
provide adequate services as
is to residents living east of
U.S. 1.
But Mayor Christensen
said'the city must consider,
though not-, necessarily
accept, any request for
annexation.
She said the city has done
what it can to provide servic-
es east of U.S. 1, but is limit-
ed by the budget.
It would take $1 billion for
the city to put sidewalks
throughout the city, she said.
That's because drainage
improvements would have
to be made, as well, she said.
"We're having to do it
piecemeal," she added.
In the newer part of the
city, Mayor Christensen said,
developers have paid much
of the cost of sidewalks and
road improvements.

Where can I catch a bus?

I was wondering why the only place I can get on a Grey-
hound bus is in Fort Pierce at midnight?

An end to snail mail?

Except for very little, the federal government delivers little
Service and expects to be rewarded. The Post Office comes to
mind. In the 60s, I could get a letter from Louisiana to rural
Pennsylvania in two days for 4 cents.
Today it is considerably more, with it taking four to 11 days.
The postal service no longer needs to sort by hand, but planes
(I've been told) are not always available).
The postal service has noticed a huge reduction in volume. It
is no mystery. In any business it is customer service and value
for money spent The USPS is no longer competitive. The pony
express was replaced when the telegraph came about.
.Possibly, the postal service has seen its time.

Re: the economy
Whoever submitted the rant "An opinion on the state of the
economy," hit the nail right on the head. Greed is profoundly
,rampant in this country and yet our government tries to force
-feed our political process down other countries throats. Yes, it's
Sthe only process we have, but it needs vast improvement.
As of 2008, the percentage of Congress holding law bar num-
bers was 88 percent, meaning, 88 percent of members of con-
gress are or were attorneys-lawyers-esquires. These folks know
the laws and loopholes as they create, vote and capitalize
sweetly from this knowledge and power of vote. The problem is
,these bottom feeding, coattail riding twits don't inform the
I hard-working tax-paying citizens, who payfor their position, of
these loopholes so we can all be on the same advantageous
sheet of music.
We the citizeris need to create a save'our country proposi-'
tion. asap, which would state any senator or house representa-
tive elected to Congress cannot nor ever have had a bar num-
ber. Boy, you'd see how quick "avarice" and cupidity; plain old
gluttonous greed would not be worth these career politicians to
nin forP9199P.,

Fix the welfare system

I would like to know, as some others here in Sunshine State of
Florida, what is going with the offices here? Why are so many
illegal immigrants able to get food stamps and have Social
Securitycards, and getfree stuff from this state?Why are we are
taking care of people who sneak into the U.S. and we can'teven
See RANTS, Al 6


When it's not worth troubleshooting


very now and again I
get an e-mail
question and the
exchange that results
makes me go "Hmm ... I
bet there are other people
out there who have
similar questions."
Then I try to remember
to ask whoever's e-mailing
me if it's OK to use their
question in an upcoming
column along with their
first name. I don't think
I've ever had anyone tell
me no, and this week
Frank on the Treasure
Coast was kind enough to
OK the following:
"Sean, I have enjoyed
reading your column for a
long time. But I have
never contacted you
before. I hope you can'
help me with this ques-
tion.
"About a month or so
ago, I started having a
problem with opening
links in e-mails I receive.
When I click on a link to a
URL, it takes about 20 or
30 seconds to bring up the
site. If I copy the URL and
paste it into my IE7, no
-problem. I tried the
'tools/options/advanced'
in IE and made sure that
the 'automatically check
for IE updates' was not
checked. I even tried
removing all of my IE add-
ins, still the delay occurs.
Do you have any ideas?
My environment is..."


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY


At this point, Frank was
helpful enough to tell me
as much information as
'he could about his sys-
tem, things such as make
and model, amount of
ram, version of Windows
- you know, the kind of
details that would help
me possibly answer his
question.
And my reply:
"Hi Frank: Thanks for
writing. To be quite
honest with you, I have
practiced the art of
copying and pasting the
Web addresses out of my
e-mail client (Outlook
Express on one machine
and Outlook on another)
and into my browser
window manually for
several years now.
In fact, I cringe and
curse under my breath
when I accidentally click a
link in e-mail, rather than
copy to highlight, because
the process of the e-mail
client invoking the
browser and then passing
the URL off to the address
bar has so many things
involved (behind the'
scenes) that it takes many
times longer that way
than it does to just copy


the link, maximize the
browser, then paste the
link into the address bar.
I've noticed that this
delay is present whether
you are using Internet
Explorer, Firefox, Chrome,
Opera, or any of the other
browsers out there.'The
delay seems to be coming
from the e-mail client side
(Outlook Express, Out-
look, Thunderbird, etc.)
and doesn't seem to be an
issue with the browser.
Now, Web mail is a
different story. E-mail
messages in Web mail
sites (such as Yahoo's
Yahoo mail or Google's g-
nmil) are alreadyin the -
browser environment, so
clicking the link actually
works as instantly as you
would expect (I usually
right click the link and
then open in another tab,
so as not to have to use
the back button to navi-
gate back to the Web
mail).
Sorry I couldn't give you
a "quick fix" but you aren't
alone in noticing the .
delay.
And before you reply
with "well, it used to work
fast..." understand that
doesn't matter: it's slow
now. Every machine is a
dynamic environment
and things change all the,
time. Is it worth the time,
aggravation and frustra-
tion to try to figure out


what changed, or is it just
easier to copy and past
the address from one
window to the other?
Me? Like I said, I've
been copying and pasting
for years now'cause the
"automatic" transition
from e-mail to browser is
less than reliable.
Hope that.helps'and
thanks again for writing.
P.S. May I have your
permission to use this
dialogue in an upcoming
column using just your
first name?"
Now, as far as my answer
goes, when I re-read it, I
almost feel like it's a cop
out. I mean, I don't actual-
ly tell Frank what's going
on or how to fix it, I just
confirm the issue and end
up telling him to live with
it.
I realize some readers
may not find that very
helpful (and I probably
will get some knowledge-
able readers who will e-
mail me telling me what's
going on) but I.think what
it all boils down to is to
chose your battles wisely:
some issues just aren't
worth the time to trou-
bleshoot, especially when
there is already a fairly
simple work around in
place.

CIRCULATION AUDIT BY

VERIFICATION


SA Then my husband,
/\/ Roy, began
.VW 'occupational
therapy to help combat the
effects ofAlzheimer's and
Parkinson's diseases, we
were both a bit puzzled. It-
sounds as though it's
meant to get you back to
work, but that is only one
small part of the picture.
The Chicago State
University Department of
Occupational Therapy
defines the specialty as
"providing service to
individuals whose abilities
to function physically,
mentally and cognitively
have been impaired by
injury, illness, develop-
mental problems or the
aging process."
These fancy words mean
that occupational thera-
pists help people perform.
their activities of daily life,
whatever they are, to the
best of their ability. That
may include making tasks
easier by adapting the
environment to the needs

complex tasks.
For Roy, Parkinson's and
Alzheimer's had affected
both his ability to make his
muscles do what he
wanted and his ability to
-make decisions. These
losses were quite a blow to
an independent, vibrant
man who'd been an
*aerospace engineer,
working on design.
Problem-solving was what
he did. As he did every-
thing else, he tackled these
new challenges with grace
and dignity.
Among the therapeutic
activities were ones you'd
imagine, including lots of
upper body exercises to
strengthen his muscles,
increase his flexibility and
range of motion, and
improve his grasp.
These were designed to
keep him strong and
enable him to continue to
do the things he still could
do, including chores


around the house, dressing
himself and caring for his
,own hygiene. There were
also exercises that
involved fine motor
control, using pincers to,
pick up small objects and
other activities that
involved the hands and'
fingers.
Roy also had therapy to
improve his problem-
solving and sequencing
ability.
One of the cruelties of
his diseases was that they
began to rob him of the
ability to see the next step.
Exercises that made him
put things in order, or
figure out what to do next,
worked on improving that
loss. He would have
"homework," exercises
from workbooks in which
he numbered the order of
events or filled in missing
letters.
It was heartbreaking for
me to see him work so
hard at these tasks, but I
was so proud of him for
taking it every bit as
seriously as he'd taken
every other assignment
he'd been given.
I have described occu-
pational therapy that Roy


received at home or at the
day center he attended,
run by the Council on
Aging of Martin County.
However, occupational
therapy is provided in
hospitals, rehabilitation
centers, skilled nursing
facilities, outpatient
clinics and mental health-
facilities.
While I have focused on
one aspect of occupational
therapy, I should mention
that for people who are .
injured or ill and need help
returning to work, occupa-
tional therapists can work
with the patient and work
environment sp the
patient is able to return to
work.
Many persons with
disabilities or injuries,
including conditions
caused by repetitive stress,
Share able to do their jobs
when modifications to
their workstations are
made.

Health services: one of several open job fields


By Jessica Tuggle
jtuggle@hometownnewsol.com
TREASURE COAST -
Across the fruited plain of
U.S. businesses, unemploy-
ment has continued on an
upward trend.
Money is tight and com-
panies have had to cut back
in order to stay in business,
leaving thousands in need
of jobs.
'But that doesn't mean the
end of hope and there are
iridustries and career paths
oit there that are more
recession-proof than others.
1211 Treasure Coast, a pub-
lic service organization,
keeps a record of the calls
fdr various types of help it
receives.
According to a report on
the organization's Web site,
32 percent of the total calls
last year regarding employ-
nient needs came from
October through December.
At the end of December, the
unemployment rate had
reached 9.7 percent.
,But not everything is as
bleak as it may seem. There
are some career fields that
are slow to be affected dur-
irig a challenging economic
climate, have withstood the
rough times and historically
cdme out stronger.
According to a report by
the Florida Agency for Work-
force Innovation, Labor
Market Statistic Center, in
the Treasure Coast metro
a*a, two industries that saw
ai.tncrease in job creation
weo education and health
sices, with more than
1,000 jobs created, and gov-
er~nent, with more than
90.jobs created.
'Gwenda Thompson, pres-
ident and CEO of Workforce
Solutions, which has loca-
tions in Indian River, Martin
and St. Lucie counties,
encouraged the unem-
ployed to continue search-
ing for jobs and not be afraid
to keep looking.
."There are a variety of
occupations that don't seem
to be as affected by econom-
ic; times as other industries
and the primary one is
healthcare," said Ms.
T4hompson.
'"People still get 'ick no
niatter what financial prob-
lems are going on and they
still need medical care," she
added.


Beth Pross, director of the
nursing program at Florida
Atlantic University's Trea-
sure Coast Campus, foresees
a growing need for nurses in
the region.
"There is an aging popula-
tion here in Florida and in
the Treasure Coast as we see
adults continue to live
longer and stay in this area,"
said Dr. Pross.
"We are going to need
more clinical nurses as care
becomes more complex and
varied," she said.
Career paths within the
healthcare industry are
quite varied and good
choices for people with a
number of strengths.
"Not everyone is going to
have to be confronted with
blood or human waste,
because there are so many
occupations, almost every-
one can find something
challenging and satisfying to
do," said Ms. Thompson.
Public relations and
administrative assistants are
some examples of these
positions, Ms. Thompson
said.
On the other hand, the
funeral, or death care indus-
try, is another career field
where a successful business
model can be found.
"We are definitely an
industry that will still be
there tomorrow," said
Richard Haisley.
Mr. Haisley, owner of
Haisley-Hobbs Funeral
Home and River Memorial
Park Cemetery in Fort
Pierce, has been in the field
for more than three
decades. As the years have
passed, he has noticed a
trend changing the industry
significantly.
"Now instead of just car-
ing for the deceased, we
have moved toward also car-
ing for the family, as well,"
said Mr. Haisley.


-.I \00m'

BU ICKT NIN.
I Yicteat'~co


Services offered by the
funeral homes include a
place for services to be held,
a dining area for family to
gather after the services and
much more.
Baby boomers seem to
want more in their services,
more speakers and live
music, said the funeral
director.
"We take on the role of
concierge, event planner, as
well as grief counselor," said
Mr. Haisley.
At a time when money is
tight, it may seem strange
that accountants are in
demand, but Gregory
Bushong, assistant dean of
the college of business at
FAU on the Treasure Coast,
said the accounting pro-
gram is the largest program
on campus.
"It seems that account-
ants do rather well, they're
not recession proof, but
they tend to do rather well,"
said Mr. Bushong.
In the current financial
situation, a midlife career
change, either by choice or
by force, can open avenues


that people may not have
considered before, such as
accounting, Mr. Bushong
said.
A recession may actually
increase the demand for
good financial planning
practices and increase the
amount of people wanting
assurance and advice on
their decisions, said Mr.
Bushong.
Another career field that
Ms. Thompson noted to be
fairly stable in rough times
is public service, such as
firefighters, police officers
and other security-related
positions:

TREASURE COAST As
South Florida enters one of
the driest periods of the year,
land managers are urging
visitors on South Florida
Water Management District-
managed lands to remain
mindfi1 of the threat of wild-
fire during the region's drier
months.
Florida's winter months
are an ideal time it enjoy the
many recreational opportu-
nities available on thousands
of acres of district land, but
they also mark the peak of
the dry season.
In past years, the threat of
wildfire was so extreme that
land managers banned
campfires on district proper-
ty. So far this dry season,


Other possible projects
include renovations to the
courthouse in downtown
Fort Pierce and improve-
ments to Walton Road, he
said.
These types of projects
would help people who
have been hit the hardest,
including sheet metal work-
ers, painters, electricians
and plumbers, he said.
He's seen statistics that
show 40 percent of sheet
metal workers are unem-
ployed, as are 30 percent of
painters and 26 percent of
electricians.

"These are public lands
managed to provide a variety
of recreational opportuni-

SFWMD director of Land

however, that people are
aware of current fire condi-
tions and take the necessary
precautions to prevent wild-
fires from occurring on these
properties."
Here are some fire safety
tips for hikers, campers,
hunters and other outdoor
enthusiasts planning to visit

In relation to the idea, the

He said he believes the
declaration would allow the
county to restrict employ-

Mr. Coward said he's also

He's planning to contact

Bank
From page A4
Bank of the Gulf Coast.
Customers sometimes have
accounts or loans with mul-
tiple banks, but any overlap
of ,customers is believed to
be nominal and no greater
than with other banks locat-
ed in Florida.
Vernon Smith, recently
retired CEO of Riverside
National Bank, was the pri-
mary founder of both banks
- Riverside National Bank in
1982 and Riverside bank of
the Gulf Coast in 1997 -
which resulted in the com-
mon use of the word "River-
side." However, the fact
remains that they are com-
pletely different banks. The
closure of Riverside Bank of
the Gulf Coast, while unfor-
tunate, will have no impact
on Riverside National Bank.

Additional facts
about Riverside Bank
of the Gulf Coast

Riverside Bank of the
Gulf Coast was founded in
May 1997 by Vernon Smith,
together with certain Cape
Coral community leaders.
Riverside Bank of the Gulf
Coast is based in Cape Coral
and has nine branches in
three counties in Southwest
Florida (Lee, Collier and
Sarasota Riverside
National -Bank does not
operate in any of these
counties). Riverside Bank
of the Gulf Coast has assets
of approximately $550 mil-
lion.
Riverside Bank of the
Gulf Coast operates under a
state charter issued by the
Florida Department of
Financial Services and is
primarily regulated by the
Federal Reserve.

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.P-L.
Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".


Fellow Florida Car Dealers, if you don't
know me, I should tell you that I don't profess
to be some "holier than thou" car dealer who
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.
But I haye evolved as my customers have
evolved. My customers' expectations, level
of education and sophistication are much
higher today. Your customers are no different.
My remarks are made sincerely and with a
positive intent toward you and your custom-
ers. I am not trying to tell you
how to run your business. I "My cu
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your expectat
customers.


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 hig
to nearly $1,000. This extra
charge is programmed into
your computer. It has been made illegal in
many states including California, but is still
legal in Florida. The 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 a few years
ago it was scary. But I did it because I could
no longer, in good conscience, mislead my
customers. Just because everybody else
was doing the same thing, aid not make it
correct.


Now, here is the good news. After eliminat-
ing the dealer fee my profit per car did drop
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
has improved, not because I eliminated the
Dealer fee, but because I was
stomers' able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
ions, level or used car. You can do the
same.
rtion and Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
:ation are I think of myself as the new
"sheriff that has come to
her today." "clean up South Florida". In
fact, I am well aware that this
letter is, to some extent, self-
serving. Many people will read this letter and
leam why they should buy a car from me,
and not you. And, I am also aware that most
dealers who read this will either get angry and
ignore it or 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.
Sincerely,
Earl Stewart Earl Stewart Toyota

The same thing goes for
the food stamp office. The
office heads should get off
their bottoms and do some-
thing about it. The offices
should link together by com-
puters, too.
Why does the Social Secu-
rity office issue new cards
and numbers when someone
loses theirs? They should
look up the person on the file
database before issuing new
card, then issue a new one
with the same number. There
are some people with two or
more Social Security cards.
Then they head to food
stamp office to get help with
these new cards.
There are so many Ameri-
cans who need help in this
area and can't get it because
of this problem.

Michael's has edge with intricate details


By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST. LUCIE It
was like nothing we'd seen
before in Port St. Lucie.
The dishes at Michael's
Fine Dining are like
abstract works of art that
go one step beyond what
you'd expect.
The mussels, for
instance, start out inno-
cently enough, served in
wine and garlic sauce. But
they go from simple to
audacious with chunks of
ham, onions and roasted
peppers liberally added.
It's daring, almost reck-
less. But that's what makes
it memorable.
The result is a dish that
announces itself on its way
to the table, with the most
intricate aromas.
It arrives dramatically
covered and served on ele-
gant dishes, almost beg-
ging to be unveiled.
It's the kind of dish that
the waitress, decked out in
a crisp white shirt, black
bow tie and slacks, delivers
with fanfare.
This appetizer alone
would make the trip to the
Prima Vista eatery worth-
while.
But there's so much
more.


Vying for our attention
are several standouts.
Among them, herb-
encrusted grilled racks of
lamb; crispy roasted duck
in orange sauce; 12-ounce
New York steaks with pep-
percorn and brandy sauce
and frog legs, sauteed in
olive oil and topped with
garlic, lemon, tomatoes
and herbs.
Chef Michael Cosgrove
is unapologetic about his
edge. His dishes are cre-
ations, loud, bold and
fancy. At age 28, he's
already worked in fine
kitchens and his menu has
style and flare.
He's an unexpected find
in a small shopping plaza
at the corner of U.S. 1 and
PrimaVista Boulevard.
In his kitchen, escargots
sizzle in white wine, garlic
and butter; jumbo lump
crab cakes are drizzled
with signature sauces;
fried calamari sit atop beds
of baby greens with bal-
samic reductions and a
bouillabaisse boasts a
decadent array of seafood.
The menu offers angel-
hair pasta with pesto
sauce; fettuccini alfredo in
creamy parmesan sauce
and a choice of chicken or

'Gilligan' returns as musical


By Shelley Koppel
Entertainment writer
FORT PIERCE For
Lloyd Schwartz, the
characters of"Gilligan's
Island" and "The Brady
Bunch" are members of
the family. His father,
Sherwood Schwartz, now
92, was the creator of both
shows and co-wrote the


theme songs for them.
The two men have
written a musical version
of"Gilligan's Island" with
words and music by Mr.
Schwartz' sister, Hope
Juber, and her husband,
Lawrence, a guitarist and
composer who played
with Paul McCartney in
Wings.


Mr. Schwartz served as a
dialogue coach on both
shows and worked his
way up to producer on
"The Brady Bunch" when
he was 25. He was the
youngest producer in
network television. He

months. When you get that
right feeling within, listen to
it, trust it and act on it. It is
your instincts giving you the
green light to go.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Making a list every day of the
things and events you need
to address will help keep you
focused on the most impor-
tant. Keep working off the
top of the list. Pace yourself.
You don't have to get every-
thing done at once. Less
important ones can wait.
Stay centered. There is calm
at the eye of the storm. You
will prevail.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
When you give, you give
freely. You have a great reser-
voir of love and talent to
draw from. Your sensitivity to
others keeps you moving in
the right direction. Just be
careful about overextending
yourself. Sometimes less is
more. Your very first impres-
sion is always the best when
your heart is open and you
are listening.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
Life continues to roll along.
Your attention to detail is
what keeps you from
becoming overwhelmed.
Your strong sense of respon-
sibility is one of your greatest
virtues. Your wonderful atti-
tude toward family and oth-
ers keeps you going. You are
on the verge of much posi-
tive growth in the New Year.
Keep on keeping on.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
Life continues to move along
at a timely clip for you. Leo
the lion is strong, fast and
hardy. He or she is a formida-
ble foe when challenged and
emerges a winner and victo-
rious over life most of the
time. Also, you have a very
large heart. Continue to
speak openly about how you
feel and what you want. Oth-
ers will respect you for it.

Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept. 22
You are awakening to new
ideas, concepts and feelings.
Expand into areas that
enhance your present skills.

duction. But the substantive
beauty that concurrently
unfolds deals with everyday
issues of love, family, shame
and acceptance.
"La Cage" is masterfully
directed by Bill Castellino
who returns to Riverside a
second time this season to
expertly guide his cast in
their exploration and discov-
ery of what makes us all
human, regardless of differ-
ences.
Choreographer Joshua
Bergasse wins kudos for put-
ting his acrobatic dancers
through an almost stupefy-
ing range of dance show-
manship that includes a
rhythmic tap chorus line
worthy of the Radio City
Rockettes as well as en
pointe ballet.
And set designer Cliff
Simon has created lavish
backdrops that transport us
to St. Tropez and the shiny
splendor of the nightclub La
Cage aux Folles.
To be sure, this show is the
blockbuster of Riverside's
season. It has every element
of theater at its best with a
large, multi-talented cast,
costumes of silk, lam6 and
sequins which drip with eye-
popping color, unforgettable
music and a story which

goes straight to the heart.
The audience is given a
glimpse into the larger fami-
ly of mankind through this
unique family of two gay
men and their son.
Though the family struc-
ture may be less convention-
al than most, it resounds
with the love, devotion and
the angst of parent/child
relationships.
When the show premiered
on Broadway in 1983, its
drag queen, homosexual-
themed story was revolu-
tionary for the stage, but the
show's universal elements
found a broad-based audi-
ence.
Twenty-six years later, the
characters still resonate with
meaning for audiences and
the stunning dazzle of drag
show entertainment
remains spell-binding.
Amid such glamour, we
nonetheless watch a peeling
away of external layers and
make-up to expose the. core
of this family unit and how
even an adult child can
sometimes threaten the par-
ents' relationship and break
their hearts.
Benjamin Howes plays
drag entertainer Albin


(known as -Zaza on stage)
and Richard White is
Georges, his partner of 20
years and nightclub owner.
The fun begins when
Georges' son from an earlier,
misguided relationship
decides to marry the daugh-
ter of an ultra- conservative
politician.
Broadway/ television/ mov
-ie/recording veteran Mr.
White is a compelling stage
presence with his tall, good
looks and superbly resonant
voice that reminded this the-
atergoer of a young John
Raitt.
His characterization of
Georges embraced every
aspect of his life as nightclub
owner, father and loving
partner for 20 years to Albin.
Mr. Howes stole the show
with his endearing portrayal
of Albin. His talents as night-
club star Zaza, loving heart
as "mother" to son Jean-
Michel and as "wife" to
Georges reminded everyone
that it is more than accept-
able to say "I am what I am...
I am my own special cre-
ation."

ST. LUCIE COUNTY--
Nationally and interna-

unveiled their ideas for the
nation's only memorial ded-

Navy SEALs.
The final four artists, Roy
Shifrin, Ann Cunningham,
Steve Dickey and Eduardo

a extensive list of candidates

knowledge of the U.S. Navy
SEALs and prior commis-

The final sculpture, which

surrounded by granite walls

every U.S. Navy SEAL and
UDT killed in the line of
duty.
The memorial will not

Mets hope to


Finish what they


Start in 2009


By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST. LUCIE The
last two seasons for the New
York Mets have been a lot
like the weather around the
Treasure Coast of late.
A little warm, but mostly
cold that left a lot of people
sick.
SAfter a monumental late-
season collapse i 2007 that
saw the Mets lose 12 out of
their final 17 games and
drop the National League
East title to the Philadelphia
Philles, New York hoped to
avoid an encore perform-
ance last year.
SAfter remaining relatively
quiet during the offseason,
the Mets' brass made strides-
to do just that by trading for
Minnesota Twins' ace Johan
Santana shortly before the
start of spring training.
After a rocky time in Port
St. Lucie, the Mets appeared
headed inthe right direc-
tion, winning two of three
against the Marlins, includ-
ing Santana's strong start in
the season opener.
The rest of the year, how-


"I'd like to try to get
him to another level
of play," Jerry Manuel
said of Francisco
Reyes.
ever, seemed to resemble a
roller coaster ride at Great
Adventure, with New York
failing to maintain any con-
sistency in the season's first
three months. The Mets'
lackluster play ultimately
led to the demise of manag-
er Willie Randolph, who was
fired after, ironically, a win
over the Los Angeles Angels
on June 16.
Replaced by Jerry Manuel,
the team finally showed
some spark after a loss to
the Phillies on July 4 ignited
a 10-game winning streak
that left the Mets at 52-44.
The rest of the season
proved to be less fruitful
though. New York once
again failed to hold a divi-
sion lead and was left out of
the' playoffs for a second
straight year.

team

races to

finish line

By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com
FORT PIERCE Lincoln
Park Academy girls basket-
ball coach Wendell Adams
looks pretty spry for turning
200 this season.
Although, it was wins, not
years, that he topped the
century mark for the
second time, his players
have a habit of making the
opposition look awfully old.
"We've been very suc-
cessful here in the past at
Lincoln Park Academy,"
Adams said. "For the past
10 years, we've been
averaging 20 years a
season."
Adams reached the
monumental mark in early
January when the Grey-
hounds dismantled area
rival St. Lucie West Centen-
nial 78-32. Dyana Pierre led
the way with a double-
double with 20 points and
11 rebounds. Stephanie Ball
added 14 points while
Brandy Montgomery
chipped in 13 points and
six steals as Lincoln Park
moved to 13-1 on the
season.
"I thought we would be
competitive," Adams said.
"I thought we would be
much improved from last
season."
While the 2007-08 team
that featured two eighth-
graders, one seventh-
grader and a freshman
yielded an impressive 17-5
record and reached the
district semifinals, this
year's squad has raised the
bar even further.
The Greyhounds started
on their impressive run last
November with a 65-8 rout


of Port St. Lucie. After a
hard-fought three-point
win over Jupiter at home,
Lincoln Park lost to Trinity
Christian Academy 72-50
on the road.
The Greyhounds
regrouped to score a
double-digit win over
Suncoast before going on
another tear that has
become synonymous with
this season. The next four
wins were of the dominant
variety, as Lincoln Park
outscored their opponents
268-56, each time limiting
them to 17 points or less.
Lincoln Park faced
another Fort Pierce power
in Fort Pierce Central a few
days after win No. 200, in
one of the Greyhounds

toughest tests of the
season. Montgomery
netted 15 points with three
steals and Pierre had 12
points and 14 rebounds to
help offset Terrice Robin-
son's 23 points for the
Cobras, and Lincoln Park
came away with a 64-58
win.
The duo have excelled all
year despite their relative
inexperience at the varsity
level when compared to
most of their opponents.
Pierre is a sophomore while,
Montgomery is in eighth
grade and is just 13.
"I knew we were young,

Montgomery said. "We all

great being part of some-

Lincoln Park closed out
the regular season with
back-to-back wins over two
of the best teams on the
Treasure Coast in Sebastian
River and Martin County to
move to 22-1. It was the
team's 20th win in a row
and most successful regular
season in the program's 20-
year history.
"It's just hard work,"
Adams said. "It started last
summer with conditioning
and carried into this
season. We started lifting
weights and it helped build
up some mental toughness.
The girls really bought into
the system."

Mets
From page B10
The lone bright spot was
Santana, whose 16-7 mark
and 2.53 ERA were worthy of
Cy Young consideration
despite pitching the last
month of the season with a
torn meniscus in his left
knee. Santana's record, as
well as his fellow teammates
on the mound, could have
been a lot better if not for
the ineptitude of the Mets'
bullpen, which was the
worst in baseball.
Billy Wagner performed
valiantly, notching 27 saves
before being shut down for
Tommy John surgery on
Sept. 8, but the rest of the
Mets' relievers treated a lead
like a hot potato and
dropped nearly every one.
To that end, general man-
ager Omar Minaya went out
and signed arguably the
best closer in baseball,
Francisco Rodriguez.
Rodriguez nailed down a
record 62 saves for the
Angels last season and has
been among the best reliev-
ers over the past four years.
Minaya also traded for J.J.
Putz, who will hopefully
provide a bridge to
Rodriguez from the Mets'
starting four, which remains
intact from a season ago.
The fifth spot is still up in


the air with Tim Redding,
Freddy Garcia and Jon Niese
in the mix.
While the Mets produced
a lot of runs during the sea-
son 799 -, which was
good enough for second
best, many of the hitters
struggled down the stretch.
There has been a push of
late for the team to add free-
agent slugger Manny
Ramirez, but Minaya seems
to be done with any signifi-
cant moves after re-signing
Oliver Perez.
If Ramirez does bring his
impressive resume to New
York, the lineup, which
already features David
Wright, Carlos Beltran and
Carlos Delgado would be
one of the most feared in
baseball, possibly a modern
day Murderer's Row.
Manuel has also toyed
with the ideal of moving
Luis Castillo into the lead-
off spot and shifting Jose
Reyes to third in the order to
get the most out of each
player.
"I'd like to try to get him
to another level of play,"
Manuel said of Reyes. "I'd
like being able to move him
around to best use his talent
and skills in such a way to
dominate a game."
"(For Luis), I'm waiting to
see how he responds.'

Fishing the waters of paradise ;


W at a great
weekend, no
wind, beautiful
flat water and fish. I love this
place!
With the incoming tidal
movement at the causeway
relief bridges, you may have
needed a reservation to get a
spot to fish.
Pompano was biting from
both causeways, using those
little jigging spoons. Most
met their pompano limits.
Yes, the limits are the same
no matter where you catch
them, 11 to 20 inches is the
slot, and six fish per day with
only one more than 20
inches.
Bridge anglers had three
,good days of action. That's
not to say the pompano have
not been there the rest of the
week because they have. It is
all about the incoming tide. If
you can catch this you can
catch pompano.


Three more busy locations
were Sailfish Flats, Hells Gate
and the North Fork. Trout
were everywhere, from Bear
Point south, using root beer
jerk bait in 2 to 3 feet. The
bite was best from 9 a.m.; let
the sun warm the water a few
degrees.
Several big trout were
released off that flat from
Indian Riverside Park south,
past the Dolphin Grill and
south to the area south of the
Stuart causeway. There were
reports of big trout on the
west shore and good num-
bers on the east side of the
river.
Red fish were north of


County Line Road to Midway
Road on the west side of the
river in shallow water. The
slot-size fish were there
through mid-morning.
So what happened to the
snook? There are a few.
nighttime anglers with these
as a target species, but what
about daytime?
Fish the shaded water, look
under the docks, look for
ambush points, big baits and
big fish. There are plenty of
sand perch, snapper and
drum to keep most anglers
busy.
From the surf there have
been plenty of blue fish
throughout the day. Spoons
have been working for the
early anglers, but cut baits
have been on the menu all
day.
When the blues slowed, the
whiting and pompano were
hot, and then the blues were
back. It really was an excel-


Bowling for college scholarships


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
ST. LUCIE COUNTY St.
Lucid Lanes is hosting its first
youth scholarship five- game
mini-marathon on April 4,
with awards of up to $800 in
college scholarships. One in
six will win scholarships. The
entry fee is $75.
This scholarship event is


one of several hosted by St.
Lucie Lanes as a reward to
children who bowl, where
they learn the universal rules
of good sportsmanship, prac-
tice and teamwork, while
having fun in a safe, clean
atmosphere..
Entry fees are deposited
with the United States Bowl-
ing Congress Scholarship
Management andAccounting


for Tenpins. The SMART pro-
gram began in August 1994 as
a response to the need for
management of educational
scholarship in the bowling
community.
SMART scholarships are
applied to tuition fees, text-
books, meal plans, housing
plans and required class sup-
plies and equipment neces-
sary for the successful com-


lent weekend for surf anglers.
Offshore one day the baits
were everywhere and the
next day a hard find. If you
have a favored location, the
fish are there, they're just
deep, so let your rigs go deep.
Dolphin were scattered
from 80-feet out. They
weren't big fish, but of size to
put in the boat. Most sails
were seen jumping, but not
- at your baits, however, the
kings and bonita were there.
I'm not sure where the bonita
came from, but they were
there.
Run a couple of baits below
the surface; that is where the
other 90 percent of the fish
feed and pay attention.
Remember there are divers
out in those waters. How
close are you to that dive flag?

While the Greyhounds
reached one of their goals in
capturing the District 14-4A
title with a 64-59 win over
Jensen Beach recently -
their first crown since 2003
Adams hopes his squad is
not done collecting hard-
ware. Lincoln Park was
scheduled to face Titusville
in their Region 4-4A opener.
"If.we play well we have a,,
good chance," Adams said.
"If they beat us on the
boards, we have a problem.
They are a mirror image of
our team.
"If we keep them under 50



Mets
,From page B10-
While hope springs eter-
nal, only time will tell if this
version of New York Mets
joins the elite company of
teams past like the '86 and
'69 squads or the dismal
fraternity of the past two.
"The whole idea of spring
training is that the team is
first," Manuel said. "My job
is to get the machine up
and running where every-
body knows their role and
knows what they're going to
do and playing good base-
ball."



Giligan
From page B7
"It's like the show, but it
winks at itself a bit. This
time you see them get ship-
wrecked and learn to get
along. They answer ques-
tions, too. The professor has
a song, 'Why Can't I Get
Seven People off an Island?'
There are love stories and
they save the world. The
musical had. to be larger
than the series."
One of the burning
questions that endures, 40
years after the series aired is
whether you prefer Mary
Ann or Ginger. Mr. Schwartz
is biased.
"In the movie, 'Rescue
From Gilligan's Island,' I
played the man waiting for
15 years for Mary Ann," he
said. "I'm a Mary Ann guy."
"Gilligan's Island: The
Musical,'comes to the Sun-
rise Theatre, 117 S. Second
St., Fort Pierce, on March 5
at 7 p.m. Tickets are $45 and
$39. Call the box office at

(points) I think we'll be
fine."
Adams concerns proved
to be justified, as Titusville
was able to pull away in the
fourth quarter for a 56-49
win, ending Lincoln Park's


season at 24-2. Despite the:
loss, Adams is upbeat about
the future.
"The average age of our
team is 15 years old," Adams
said, "We'll definitely be
back."
