QVC cuts hours

Because of the economic
slowdown, QVC officials
announced last week work
hours will be cut temporarily
for 540 employees.
Most of the employees will
work one less day than cur-
rently scheduled, QVC offi-
cials said.
QVC, located in Port St.
Lucie, employs about 1,300 at
its call center.
The multimedia retailer
cited a reduction in the vol-
ume of business as the reason
for the change.

New emergency center to


open in Port St. Lucie

Meisel@hometownnewsol.com open an emergency center emergency room.


PORT ST. LUCIE Port
St. Lucie City Council-
woman Michelle Berger
remembers the pain her
family suffered 18 years
ago when her grandfather
died.
His death occurred after
it took an ambulance nine
minutes to reach his resi-
dence in Leesburg and 27
minutes to get to a hospi-
tal, Ms. Berger recalled last
week.
That experience, she
said, is part of why she
pushed for Martin Memo-


in western Port St. Lucie.
"It was a pain I don't
want anyone else to go
through," she said of her
grandfather's death.
On Feb. 17, Martin
Memorial officials
announced plans to con-
vert the existing acute care
center at 1095 N.W. St.
Lucie Blvd., to an emer-
gency room. Construction
is slated to begin this
month.
Although it won't be
attached to a hospital,
officials said, it will be able
to handle the same emer-


ional


Plans call for the $6 mil-
lion, 9,100-square-foot
center to be completed by
this fall. It will have 70
employees, of which the
majority will be new hires.
Construction on the
emergency center will
begin, as Martin Memorial
continues its long battle to
build a hospital at Tradi-
tion in western St. Lucie.
A judge is expected to
rule later this year on a
lawsuit filed by Hospital
Corporation of America,

Federal courthouse


will boost economy


By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
A new federal courthouse
that will be constructed dur-
ing the next three years will
be a major step up over pre-
vious courtroom facilities in
Fort Pierce, officials said last
week at a groundbreaking
ceremony.
While the federal court-
house is currently housed in
a leased building, previously
it consisted of a courtroom
in the old post office on
Orange Avenue.
"When you wanted to


make copies of the jury
instructions, you had to go
across the street to Butter-
field's (a drug store) and you
got wet copies," said Frederi-
co A. Moreno, chief federal
judge for the southern dis-
trict of Florida.
And when plans for the
new courthouse began more
than 20 years ago, former
Fort Pierce Mayor William
Dannahower recalled that a
woman from the U.S. Gener-
al Services Administration
arrived and viewed the

Students win culinary competition


By Jay Meisel
meisel@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST. LUCIE Want
to know something about
preparing foods? Ask a
group of students from St.
Lucie West Centennial
High School.
The team of St. Lucie
West students won the
knowledge bowl contest at
the ninth annual ProStart
Culinary Team Competi-
tion earlier this month at
the Orlando Convention
Center.
The team, consisting of
Kelli Birchland, Misty
Ladzinski, Andrea Krull
and Christopher Cuccrullo,
will advance to the Eighth
Annual National ProStart
Culinary Team Competi-
tion in San Diego in April.
To win the state compe-
tition, the students
answered questions and
provided solutions to a


management dilemma
scenario.
Calvin Lewis, a chef and
a culinary instructor at
Centennial, was proud of
the students.
"We beat the team that
usually wins," he said,
referring to Eastside High
School in Gainesville.
The school participated
in the state contest last
year, and while the stu-
dents didn't win, they
vowed to be better this
year.
"They studied real hard,
and it paid off," Mr. Lewis
said.
The students also placed
12th in the gourmet meal
competition and sixth in
the waiter relay contest.
Christopher said he
found the competition to
be a "thrill ride."
"The whole competi-
tion was awesome," said
Christopher, who plans to


attend culinary school.
During the quiz portion,
students were asked ques-
tions, such as "How many
ounces in a pound?," Misty
said.
During the scenario part
of the competition, Andrea
said, the students had to
find a solution to a situa-
tion where a customer had
chipped his tooth on metal
in food, the dishwasher
was broken and three
servers failed to show up
for work.
Their solution was to get
help for the customer first
with the chipped tooth.
"It was always the cus-
tomers first," said Andrea,
who plans to either find a
culinary-related job after
college or work as a Florida
wildlife control officer.
The students won schol-
arships to various schools,

ST. LUCIE COUNTY St.
Lucie County officials took a
step last week toward getting
their piece of the pie from
the federal stimulus pro-
gram.
Officials from Fort Pierce,
Port St. Lucie and St. Lucie
County agreed on submit-
ting three projects for fund-
ing from the stimulus pro-
gram.
They also agreed on five
projects for transportation
enhancement that include
sidewalks and landscaping
along roads.
"I think we pulled together
three great projects," said
Port St. Lucie Vice Mayor


in court.
It was part of an operation
to check whether clerks fol-
lowed the law by checking
identification to avoid sell-
ing alcohol to minors.
Three teenagers recruited
by deputies walked into
convenience and liquor
stores in north St. Lucie
County, Fort Pierce and Port
St. Lucie.
In all, they made 38 stops.
Clerks sold alcohol to them
during nine of those
attempted purchases.
"What we're looking for is
compliance to the law, 21 or
older," Lt. Kevin Dietrich of
the St. Lucie County Sher-
iff's Office.

INFECTION CONTROL IN THE DENTIST'S OFFICE
Q: Do dentists take precautions against infection in their offices?"
A: Dentists follow many established practices to protect their patients-and staff-
from infection. Not only does the American Dental Association have procedures for its
members to follow, but the state and federal governments set standards as well.
Dentists will, at least once a day, disinfect all office surfaces-door handles,
countertops, waiting-room furniture. The dental chair you sit in will be disinfected "' ;
after each patient and the headrest will be covered with a fresh, sterile dressing. The .ir
dentists, hygienist and any other dental assistants should wear facemasks that cover their mouths and
noses and they also should wear new, sterile hypoallergenic latex gloves for each patient.
Before treating each patient, and every time the dentist works with any sort of non-sterile material,
like paper records, the dentist should wash his hands with antimicrobial soap or an antiseptic and put
on a new pair of gloves. The federal Centers for Disease Control consider hand hygiene the most 0
important factor in preventing the spread of organisms. Ask your dentist about precautions in place at
her office.

Greek festival to feature dancing, music, food


By Jay Meisel
MFisel@hometownnewsol.com
'iTREASURE COAST -
For the past 30 years, St.
Nicholas Greek Orthodox
Church has brought Greek
music, food and dancing
td Fort Pierce.
-The tradition will con-
tipue this year when the
Greek Festival is held
March 6 through March 8.
7.'The purpose is to bring
o0ir culture to the commu-
nity," said Dennis Starr,
president of the parish
council.
,,Apparently, the church
has accomplished that
purpose, as the event grew
to become one of the
largest events in St. Lucie
County, second only to the
fair, Mr. Starr said.
'Every year, church mem-
bers spend hundreds of
hours cooking and making
other preparations for the
I-


festival.
"It's a ton of work and it's
all done by the parish-
ioners," Mr. Starr said. "It's
a labor of love."
One of the traditional
highlights is church youth,
ages 5 to 18, dressed in tra-
ditional Greek costumes
dancing to Greek music.
The children spend
months preparing for the
event.
Dance performances will
be at 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.
on Friday, March 6, 1 p.m.,
3 p.m., 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.
on Saturday, March 7, and
1 p.m., 3 p.m. and 5:30
p.m. on Sunday, March 8.
And for those who
become hungry while
watching the dancing,
there's plenty of food.
The lunch/dinner menu
includes lamb shanks
cooked in seasoned toma-
to sauce, chicken Athenian
(chicken seasoned with


lemon juice and oregano),
souzoukakia (Greek-style
meatballs in seasoned
tomato sauce) and dol-
mades (grape leaves
stuffed with seasoned
ground chuck and rice,
topped with a lemon
sauce.
There's also a Greek coffee
shop and a grill that features
items such as gyros, Greek
sausage and souvlaki (bar-
becued, marinated pork
cubes, topped with chopped
and onions and tomato. It is
served on pita bread with a
special sauce.
For those with a sweet
tooth, the festival also fea-
tures a Greek pastry shop
with such items as baklava,
koulourakia (crisp twisted
butter cookies) and flutes
(chopped spiced nuts, rolled
in buttered filo dough and
topped with honey syrup).
Greek wine and beer will
be available.

GEMS AND GEMSTONES
There is no generally accepted defini-
tion for the term gem or gemstone, but
they all have something special, some-
thing beautiful about them. Most gem-
stones are minerals (e.g., diamond),
mineral aggregates (e.g., jade) or
more rarely rocks (e.g., lapis lazuli).
Some are organic formations (e.g.,
"amber), and other gem materials are
of synthetic origin. For some gem-
stones the source of specialness and
beauty is the color, an unusual optical
phenomenon, or the shine that makes
them stand out in comparison to other
stones. For other stones it is the
hardness or an interesting inclusion
that makes them special. Rarity also
plays a role in the classification as
gemstone. Since the valued charac-
teristics usually come into effect only
through cutting and polishing, gem-
stones are also normally considered to
be the cut stones. Cutting and polish-
ing means refinement of what might be
an otherwise insignificant raw material.
The term semi-precious has generally
fallen out of use because of its deroga-
tory meaning. Formerly, one meant
with this term the less valuable and not
very hard gemstones, which one
opposed to the "precious" stones.
"Precious" and "semi-precious" are
adjectives, however, that cannot be
adequately defined to distinguish
between gems. Imitations are made to
resemble natural or synthetic gem
materials, completely or partially man-
made. They imitate the look, color,
and effect of the original substance,
but they possess neither their chemi-
cal nor their physical characteristics.
To these belong-strictly speaking-also
those synthetic stones that do not
have a counterpart in nature.
However, in the trade these are often
counted as synthetic stones. Synthetic
gemstones are crystallized manmade
products whose physical and chemical
properties for the most part corre-
spond to those of their natural gem-
stone counterparts.

Studies show, he said,
that most growth in Port St.
Lucie has been to the west,
he said.
Martin Memorial will be
working with the St. Lucie
County Fire District to
determine which patients

room opens it will have 12
beds with the possibility of
expanding to 16 and a dedi-
cated X ray lab, said Brad
Guffin, director of the cen-
ter.


At all times, the 24-houx:
center will have a minimum,
of one physician and three
registered nurses, two.
emergency room techni,
cians and a respiratory
therapist, he said.
"The only thing missing.
will be a hospital," Mr. Guft'
fin said. "
The opening of the free-
standing emergency room'
is part of an increasing'
trend, said Dr. Steven D.M
Paar, medical director.
The center will strive tp
have all patients examined,
by a doctor within 30 mini,
utes of when they arrive, hep
said.
Most patients will be1
treated within an hour, Dr,.
Paar said.
In some cases, he said
patients will be stabilized'
and then taken to a hospi'
tal.
While free-standing
emergency rooms generallI
handle less critical situa'
tions than traditional ones
Dr. Paar added it will b6
able to handle more acuti
cases if necessary.
The 4lyte care center that
the new emergency roori
will replace wasn't open 2
hours and isn't set up to
handle many of the situa-
tions the emergency room
will be able to deal with, he
said.

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

Cops wasting time, money

Every time I drive through St. Lucie County, I see two or
three cops sitting wasting time while one of them has some-
body pulled over. You don't need two or three cops patting the
other one on the back.

Electronic payments would be helpful

I read with interest that the city is trying to get the residents
to have their checks electronically deposited into their
accounts. How come we can't pay for our water bill electroni-
cally?
I have stand'in line to pay with a credit card, but the mayor
and everybody else is encouraging electronic deposits? It
doesn't make much sense to me.

Re: cigar rant

This is in regard to the cigar rant. I have an issue with the
editor's note at the bottom. What gives you the right to voice
his opinion to this one? You should rebut all rants, not just
ones you have personal opinions about.
Editor's note: Since the rant took issue with an advertise-
ment that appeared in the newspaper we felt it only fair to let
the advertising department/publisher respond. Whenever
there's an issue that calls for a response, Hometown News
always contacts the aggrieved party and gives him/her/them a
chance to respond.

Heartfelt thanks

This is a thank you to the vet tech and the policeman who
pulled over to help a dog that got run over.
We had a couple friends come over to dog-sit our Italian
greyhound while we went out for the night. Unfortunately,
while we were out, he ran out of the house. He didn't know
what to do about the cars, and was hit and killed. Our friends
went looking for him, and in the meantime, a vet tech and
police officer had pulled over. They saw our friends and
3ilp p Siem locate our dog. The person who hit him never
stopped.- -
We would like to thank the angels out there that were there
for us, also, Heavenly Creatures Pet Cemetery for all their help.
We know this was an accident and we are all devastated. We
loved our pet very much and miss him dearly.

Safety is the reason

This is in response to the ranter who said he or she walked
back and forth to school each day. We sit with our kids at the
bus stops out of concern for their safety. There are bad drivers
and kidnappers. That's why we wait at the bus stops. Taking
care of our kids is the priority.

No need for the fire trucks

This is about the fire department rushing out when some-
body gets sick. There's a fire truck sitting and waiting with the
ambulance, but there's no need for them to be there. If there's
a fire, that's fine, but why sit there when the ambulance can
take care of the call?

Who are you calling a scumbag?

This is in response to the person who wrote "city of scum-
bags." How can you judge an entire city by what you see on
the road? You can't say we are full of illegal aliens and scum-
bags.
I see you're from New Jersey. I'm sure there are plenty of
both up there.

More on scumbag rant
This is in reference of the scumbag article. I'm the president
of a successful company in town. I'm a legal alien and I'd love
to meet the person who wrote that rant. I'd love to take a pic-
ture with him just to say I've had my picture taken with a
dinosaur.
Apparently, he didn't become extinct due to the size of his
brain, like all the other dinosaurs. I guess coming from New
Jersey makes you an expert on scumbags. And he can see an
illegal alien just from driving down the street. That makes him
an immigrationofficer, too. I'd love to meet this character.

Safety concerns regarding spyware


s spyware safe? That is a
question that everyone
needs to ask before
downloading a piece of free
anti-spy software that
promises the world.
However, how does
someone find out if
something is safe before
installing some piece of
garbage onto her machine?
You could go by a friend's
recommendation.
"Well so and so is
running it and they aren't
having any problems so it
must be safe." But maybe
your friend's machine is a
wreck and he doesn't know
it yet.
Some install software
assuming it's safe just
based on what the software
promises to do. It's an anti-
spyware program, so it
must be safe, right?
Just because the software
you are about to install
promises to keep you safe
doesn't mean it doesn't
come with its own bit of
nastiness.
Determining if a piece of
software is safe, based on
what the download page
promises, is one way many
people are duped into
installing harmful stuff
onto their machines.
In fact, one of the most
sinister ways spyware


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY


authors trick people into
loading their junk is by
throwing a pop up window
onto the screen warning
users that their "machine is
already infected."
People fall for that all the
time, only to find their
machines infected by
something that they
thought was going to help.
IYu could spend time
I, ,lokine 1ti the nnd-,user ,n
license agreement looking
for cryptic clauses saying
things such as, "by clicking
accept you are also allow-
ing software by our market-
ing partners to be
installed."
This is a clause that
should cause an alarm to
go off in your head. Read-
ing the end-user license
agreement is often difficult.
It's a "legalese" document
that can be hard to inter-
pret. Unless you are a
lawyer, you may not catch
the wording where they
trick you into accepting the
"extra" garbage.
You'd be surprised how
many of these programs


get away with it. They know
most people aren't going to
read it, they're just going to
click "accept" and that
gives them all the permis-
sion they need.
Wouldn't it be nice to
have a site to go to where
you could check a piece of
software before you install
it in your machine?
There is such a site and
its list of malicious of "anti"
software is pretty extensive.
One of the first things
you will notice is how many
pieces of bad software are
named in such ways as to
fool users into thinking
they are downloading
something safe rather than
something deceptive.
Fire up the Web browser
and go to ivww.Spyware-
Warrior.com and then click
the "rogue/suspect anti-
spyware" link.
On that page you will
find an extensive list of
programs that promise to
keep your machine safe,
the domain the software
originates from and
comments as to why that
software made it to the
rogue list.
You will find one reoc-
curring comment and see
that many of these pro-
grams use "false positives
to goad users into purchas-
ing."


In other words, it's
common practice for bad
Software to try to trick you
into purchasing something
by telling you that your
machine is infected when it
is not. There ought to be a
law.
One recommendation I
would like to give is to open
your "add/remove pro-
grams" applet in your
Windows control panel and
compare what's installed
on your machine to the
spyware warrior rogue list.
Should you find some-
thing on your machine
that's on that list, remove it.
That's one step I usually
takewli~fenying to lean
'ah infected machine.
If you've read my column
for any length of time, you
will know that I frequently
recommend AVG Free as an
effective anti-virus (down-
load it at
http://free.grisoft.com) and I
am happy to report that
AVG does not show up on
the spyware warriors rogue
list.
That fact just raises my
confidence level for AVG
one more notch.

High-protein meals
may help you burn
fat faster

From the UCLA Geffen
School of Medicine "Healthy
Years" newsletter, Feb. 2009:
Researchers have found
that overweight people
who eat a high-protein
breakfast and lunch are
better able to burn post-
meal fat more efficiently,
which may accelerate
weight loss.
Researchers suggest
selecting lower-calorie
protein options, such as
fish, poultry and egg whites
instead of bacon, eggs and
non-lean cuts of beef. They
also suggest eating vegeta-
bles that are lower in
carbohydrates, including
lettuce, leafy greens,


broccoli, cauliflower,
asparagus and bell pep-
pers. Fruits and whole
grains, such as brown rice,
should also be a part of
your meal plan.
In addition, researchers
suggest adding resistance
training, such as light hand
weights, to build lean
muscle mass, which helps
the body burn fat more
efficiently.
Dietary changes should
be discussed with your
physician, as protein can
be a problem for people
with kidney disease.

Breast cancer
screening important
for older women

From the Mount Sinai
School ofMedicine "Focus
on Healthy Aging," newslet-
ter, Feb. 2009:
As many as 45 percent of
breast cancers are diag-
nosed after age 70, and the
risk doesn't start to decline
until after age 84, but many
women stop having
mammograms because


they think they would have
gotten the disease if they
were going to.
Lauri Margolies, director
of breast imaging at Mount
Sinai Medical Center,
disagrees.
"All women over age 40
should pursue mammogra-
phy. Currently there is no
upper limit for screening,"
she said.
My own grandmother
was diagnosed with breast
cancer at 90. Don't make
the mistake of thinking
you're too old to get the
disease.

Fight frailty by
maintaining muscle
mass

Also from the Mount
Sinai School ofMedicine
"Focus on HealthyAging,"
newsletter, Feb. 2009:
There are steps you can
take to stay strong and
build muscle mass as you
age. Strong muscles help
fight osteoporosis, arthritis
and obesity and help
maintain balance and
prevent falls.
The key to a muscle
workout is resistance. You
can use your own weight,
as when you do a push-up,
or use light hand weights.
Resistance to muscle
contraction is what builds


and maintains muscle
mass.
Doctors recommend
adding resistance training
to a program of cardiovas-
cular exercises for the heart
and lungs, and exercise
such as tai chi or yoga that
helps maintain balance
and promotes relaxation
and proper breathing. You
do not need to do each one
every day, and varying the
program keeps it interest-
ing.
If you're not sure what to
do, a few sessions with a
personal trainer or at
fitness center or YMCA is a
good investment for your
health.

A final note: I recently
learned that a neighbor has
advanced colon cancer. I
don't know if he had
routine colonoscopies, but
let me use that sad event to
remind you that colono-
scopies save lives by
removing polyps that can
become cancerous or by
detecting cancer at an
early, treatable stage. If
you've been putting it off,
don't delay.

She said She doesn't
believe the sidewalk along

Because of the lack of
sidewalks in some areas,
there are "major problems
with kids getting to schools,"
she added.
Port St. Lucie City Coun-
cilwoman Michelle Berger
said she couldn't support the
proposal unless it included
sidewalks in Port St. Lucie.
Sidewalks along Savona,
Dawfii' and Nelaleulci


streets are particularly
important because, "we've
actually had incidents"
along those thoroughfares
involving pedestrians and
vehicles," Port St. Lucie

said.
One requirement of the

Mr. Buchwald said the
staff will review the sidewalk
projects to make sure that
requirement is met.
In addition to those proj-
ects, the Florida Department
of Transportation is seeking
money to widen Okee-

Members of the International Academy of Low Vision
Specialist help those with macular degeneration to keep
reading and driving.

By Lois Neinken
Freelance Writer

Just because you have macular degeneration or other eye
diseases like diabetic retinopathy doesn't mean you must give
up your favorite activities.
Ever look through a pair of field glasses or binoculars?
Things look bigger and closer, and much easier to see. Florida
Optometrist, Dr. Marc Jay Gannon, is using miniaturized binoc-
ulars or telescopes to help people who have lost vision from
macular degeneration or other eye conditions.
"Some of my patients consider me the last stop for people
who have vision loss," said Dr. Gannon, a low vision specialist
with offices in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, 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 International Academy of Low Vision.
Specialist Dr. Gannon is the founder and director of the
Low Vision Institute and the American Foundation of Low
Vision Rehabilitation.
Macular Degeneration is the most common eye disease
among the senior population. As many as 25% of those over
65 have some degree of degeneration. The macula is one small
part of the entire retina, but it is the most sensitive part and
gives us sharp images. When it degenerates, macular degener-
ation 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 that what causes macular degen-
eration. But it is know that UV light from the sun is a major con-
tributing factor. Other factors are smoking, aging of course, and
improper nutrition, and 15 to 20% of the time it is genetic. There
are two types, wet and dry. The wet type involves leaky blood
vessels which may be able to be treated. Unfortunately, it may
only result in a temporary fix as other leaks usually occur.
Our job is to figure out everything and anything possible to
keep a person functioning," says Dr. Gannon. Donald Paquette,
72, a former county assessor from Anaheim, California was
seen last November, "I could not read the street signs soon
enough when driving and I couldn't read my saxophone music
anymore."
The doctor fit him with bioptic telescope glasses.
"Amazing!" says Donald.
"I can read the street signs twice as far as I did before. I
can play my sax again. Happy day!" Dr. Gannon also provides


Patient Bobbie Seidman using tele-microscopic glasses for
reading, writing, playing cards, etc.
special microscope reading glasses to make the newspaper
print much easier to read. Dorothy Weston, 80, from Broward
County, Florida was unable to perform her job as a bookkeep-
er before visiting Dr. Gannon. She received a pair of special
telemicroscope 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 created a special split tele-microscope system
for her designed to function like a bifocal." The top part
allowed her to see the cards on the table and the bottom was
for her hand."
Telescopic glasses usually cost over $2000. says Dr.
Gannon, especially if we build them with an automatic sun-
glass. Ellen Imboden traveled from Sweden and was helped
with two pairs of glasses:
Special $475 prismatic glasses, that let her read
newsprint, as well as bioptic telescopes to continue driving in
Sweden.
Low vision devices are not always expensive. Some
reading glasses cost as little as $475 and some magnifiers
$100. Every case is different because people have different lev-
els of vision and different desires.
Dr..Gannon can be reached toll free at 1-866-942-2020.
You can visit Dr. Gannon at www.LowVisionlnstitute.com. Free
seminars for senior centers are also available.

M ost people believe
their surname has
been the same
forever and spelled the same
way, too.
The first thing you learn in
genealogy is that the
spelling of names does not
matter at all. Each member
of the family may spell the
same name differently, and

it may vary from generation
to generation, from docu-
ment to document, and
even change in the same
document.
It is not unusual at all to
find a name spelled one way
at the beginning of a will
and differently at the end.
But as it turns out, at least
for me, a complete name
change may not be so
unusual either!
This month I am going to
tell you about five families
on my chart and what I have
discovered about each one.
I have changed the names to
protect cousins, in-laws and
anyone else it may concern,
since they may not be able
to take this in the same
sense of humor as I do.
I have run DNA tests on all
of these families. Two of the
five families have proven to
have used the exact sur-
name since the 17th and
18th centuries. How do I
know? First, I have a paper
trail with each generation
proven with documented
sources. However, this does
not prove that there might
be some irregularities in the
bloodline, like an adoption,
stepchild, etc. This is where
the DNA plays its part.
I gathered DNA samples
from close male relatives
with the surnames I wanted
checked. Eventually, we had
matches with other males
with the same surnames.
Comparing our genealogy
records, we found common


ancestors many generations
back, proving our bloodlines
were the same.
In other words, the DNA
from Tom from Florida and
Joe from California matched
each other, and they both
traced back to Joshua, who
lived in 1775. Therefore,
everyone along the male line
will have the sameY-DNA
gene. This is the way it
should work in a perfect
world.
The next two families have
a very different story. James
and John both showed up in
Florida around 1850, each
with no apparent relatives or
history, and for more than
35 years, no one has been
able to trace. It didn't take
me too long to decide I
probably had the wrong
name, but those family
members carrying that
name weren't interested in
hearing about it.
John was listed on the
census as an ex-convict, and
soon met his demise, so no
one has looked very far for
him. James is a different
character altogether. Family
legend says James came to
Florida as a young boy who
ran away from home. He has
a full name, date and place
of birth.
He became a big fish is a
small pond in his little town
and produced 17 children,
which gives us many
descendants. They all
consider his statistics
sacred. Since I don't carry


the name, I seem to be the
only skeptic. If his name is
wrong, chances are the birth
information is wrong. Once
again, let's use the DNA.
I searched out distant
male cousins who carried
each surname. There has
never been a match for
either, with the surname
they used.
After several years, I
received a note from the
administrator of John's
surname group.
"Although you have not
matched anyone in our
group, you do have close
matches in the Dunbar
surname project. We
suggest you join their
group."
In other words, you don't
belong to us. John was from
the hills of Tennessee and
could have used his birth
name or changed it, but
somewhere along the line,
and not too far back, his
family was from the Dunbar
bloodline, not the surname
on my chart.
In James' surname
project, it became apparent
that all of his DNA matches
had the same last name, and
it wasn't the one he used. So,

Alcohol
From page A1
During such checks in the
past, typically between 20
and 25 percent of the clerks
failed to comply, he said.
Authorities want clerks
and store owners to realize
that it's "not all about the
mighty dollar, but about the
safety of our children," he
said.
During the operation last
week, the teenagers in many
of the cases bought energy
drinks that contain alcohol.
Lt. Dietrich said, parents
may see their children
drinking what appears to be
an energy drink and do not
realize it contains alcohol.
The deputies aren't just
out to arrest clerks and give
them notices to appear. The
long-term goal is remind
store owners and clerks of
the law, in hope they will
comply in the future, said
Deputy Troy Glover St. Lucie
County Sheriff's Office.
"It goes beyond notices to
appear," he said. "We're sav-
ing lives. That's the ultimate
goal, to save lives."
The operation involved
three-unit teams. The teen-
ager would enter the store.
An undercover deputy,
who was in a separate vehi-
cle, would follow to witness
the sale.
If the sale occurred, a
deputy in uniform would
arrive to issue the notice to
appear.
Deputy Marcus Sigmon of
the St. Luce County Sheriff's
Office tried to calmone 23-
year-old clerk who was visi-
bly upset.
He told him to relax, and
that he wasn't the only clerk
facing the same predica-
ment.
The operation is a success
if the clerks, during the


remainder of their careers,
check licenses, he said.
"I sort of had a feeling this
was going to happen," one
clerk said at a Port St. Lucie
liquor store said after being
arrested.
He said the store has a pad
with separate sheets each
day stating the birthdates of
the youngest person eligible
to buy tobacco and alcohol.
When the teenage girl
came in, he said, he looked
at the date for tobacco,
which can be purchased by
18 year olds.
He said that after the girl
left, he had a feeling he
made a mistake and would
face consequences.
"She was a person I had
never seen before," he said.
A woman working at the
store said the clerk has
worked there for several
years and she doesn't
believe he previously made
that mistake.
Deputies were somewhat
skeptical of the clerk's claim
that he made the sale
because of looking at the
wrong date.


The clerk said he doesn't
expect to do that again.
"I don't want to go to
another court date," he said.
Sometimes, deputies sus-
pect that when they leave
one store, clerks will notify
counterparts at other stores.
In one store, a clerk asked
for an 18-year-old teenage
girl's identification and then
told her to leave.
He said he believed she
was with the ATE the federal
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco
and Firearms.
But during the operation,
no federal agents were
involved.
However, two under-

check whether clerks were

purchasers.

cover investigators with the
Florida Division of Alcoholic
Beverages and Tobacco par-
ticipated.
Sean Dillon, one of the
investigators, said that if a
store has repeated viola-
tions, the department can
assess a fine up to $1,000
and suspend the license.

pate go to college, Ms. Alien
said.
Past participants have
become attorneys, nurses,
pharmacists and teachers,
she said.
School guidance coun-
selors recommend partici-
pants based on grades and
involvement in the commu-
nity and school, she said.
While the name of the
event may lead some to
believe the event's for
young women from affluent
families, that's far from the
truth, Ms. Allen said.
"Some are from affluent
families. Some are not," she
said.
Ms. Noble, 18, who was
captain of the cheerleading
squad at Fort Pierce Cen-
tral, said she plans to attend
Indian River State College
and then seek a business
degree from Florida State
University.
Another participant, Jas-
mine Wimes, 17, a senior at


Fort Pierce Westwood High
School, said she wants to
attend the hospitality pro-
gram at IRSC. She said she's
been involved with her
church, Full Gospel Taber-
nacle in Fort Pierce.
The Delta Sigma program
has meant a lot to her, she
said.
"They are teaching me
how to be a lady," she said.
Ms. Wimes said she also
learned how to act in differ-
ent settings.
Chiquica Reese, 18,
another student at Fort
Pierce Westwood, said she
saw the event as a "special
coming out for society."
She plans to attend Flori-
da A&M University in Talla-
hassee and wants to
become a lawyer and run
her own law firm.
Lincoln Park Academy

federal aid

for food,

For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
ST. LUCIE COUNTY St.
Lucie County will receive
$236,000 to supplement
emergency food and shelter
programs in the county.
The selection was made by
a national board, chaired by
the Department of Homeland
Security's Federal Emergency
ManagementAgency.
A local board, chaired by
Cris Adams, vice president of
Community Impact for Unit-
ed Way of St. Lucie County
and comprised of members
representing the American
Red Cross, Salvation Army,
Mustard Seed Ministries,
Catholic Charities, St. Lucie
County Community Services
and two members at large,
one of whom is a former
homeless person, will deter-
mine how the funds are to be
distributed among the emer-
gency food and shelter pro-
grams run by local nonprofit
organizations.
The local board is responsi-
ble for recommending agen-
cies to receive these funds and
any additional funds available
under this phase of the pro-
gram.
Under the terms of the
grant, local agencies chosen
to receive funds must be pri-
vate, voluntary nonprofits or
units of government, have an
accounting system, practice
non discrimination, have
demonstrated the capacity to
deliver emergency food
and/or shelter programs, and
if they are a private voluntary
organization, must have avol-
untary board.
Last year, local nonprofit
organizations receiving allo-
cations from FEMAs emer-
gency food-an4di 4Irer pro-
gram included Mustard-Seed,
Ministries, Plant a Seed Min-
isties, SafeSpace, St. Vincent
de Paul Society, Save Our Chil-
dren and Treasure Coast Food
Bank.
Grant money is not distrib-
uted to individuals, but rather
to local nonprofits that assist
individuals in reorganizing
and improving the quality of
their lives.


Smith
From page A8
once again, we have
changed surname groups,
and found new relatives. So
far, we have no way of
knowing if James deliber-
ately ran away and changed
his name, was adopted,
given the wrong name at
birth or if it happened
several generations back.
But in this case, the name
seems to be "Brown" and
not "Black." It seems my
fellow researcher, Tom
Brown, whose DNA sample
I used, is still in denial and
trying to figure out how he
can possibly be related to
this strange family with a
different name.
The name change for
case number five is even
closer to home for this
family. The paper trail is
beautiful, and goes back to
the year 1800. There has
only been one little flaw


and that is in the second
generation.
I have never found a
birth certificate for Paul or
a marriage record for his
parents. Not so unusual,
since the state had only
recently created the law
mandating the recording of
births. Paul was probably
born at home and the
record never filed. I didn't
know in which state his
parents were married, but
knew it had to be less than
a year before he was born.
There was a strange
feeling about this family,
but I had found them on
the census as a family
group and even knew Paul
and his siblings. Again, the
Only DNA match I've ever
had is with another male
with a different surname.
SAs I've always preached,
if you wait long enough, the
answer will come to you.
As the Internet grows, so do
the records available, and
one day, up popped that
illusive marriage record.

The parents were indeed
married three years after
the birth of the child. After
putting all the facts togeth-
er, it's obvious Paul has a
different father.
Going back to the DNA
projects, I find many
matches with this other
surname and the two
families all live in the same
vicinity.
So once again, I have a
family with a different
bloodline than the sur-
name they use today. Who's
the daddy? I'll probably
never know, but then again,
if I live long enough, I'll bet
somehow, someday, the
truth will come out.
I am sending for a new
birth certificate with the
new surname. Who knows?

Consider a European river cruise

th countless rivers board and venture out at your
nEurope, it might TRAVEL W leisure, whereas a tour will
e dicult to decide T have you alreadypacked and
which river to cruise first PATT TOPPA on a bus by 7 a.m.
(assuming of course you will Don't get me wrong, there is
return for another). The something to be said for
Rhine, which runs from the touring, but this column is


Netherlands through France,
Germany and Switzerland, or
the Rhone, which runs
straight through the south of
France?
How about aTulips and
Windmills cruise? The Rhine
River also offers a trip to
Oberammergau for the
passion play.
Whichever you choose,
you're sure to be delighted
with river cruising.
Many past river cruise
passengers feel it's the better
way to cruise and a more
relaxing way to see Europe. A
river cruise is a wonderful
way to explore some of the
world's most fascinating
places in a comfortable,
convenient way. River


cruising can get you up-close-
and-personal to the culture
and history of the region. It is
a hassle-free way of travel.
You board, unpack, relax and
enjoy.
Some of the world's greatest
cities can be visited while on a
European river cruise. Most of
the cities and towns along the
rivers were built because it
was necessary for trade,
therefore bringing you closer
to the pulse of the people.
Unlike ocean cruises, rivers
provide easy access to
European city centers. You
spend less time getting there
and more time being there.
Unlike tours, you can spend
the morning relaxing on


aoout European nver
cruising.
Viking River Cruises has
been around for more than
175 years (taking over the
original KD Line) and have
original docking rights in
most European river ports.
This is very important for
river cruising. It means they
are docked right up to the pier
in port.
When other river ships pull
into port (while aVR vessel is
there) their passengers have
to walk across one or more
vessels beside the pier in
order to get off the ship. It is
very common to have two or
three riverboats side by side
in port. Whether they are first

Singer brings message of pain, hope


By Shelley Koppel
Entertainment writer
FORT PIERCE Judy
Collins began her profes-
sional career at 13 as a
classical pianist. As she
began writing songs, she
picked up a guitar and
never looked back. Her
first album, "A Maid of
Constant Sorrow," was
released when she was 22.
More than four decades
later, her music comprises
the songs of a generation.
Ms. Collins spoke by
phone from her home in
New York about her work
and the healing nature of
art.
For Ms. Collins, it is not
that easy to say what
makes a great song.
"That's a mystery you
can't answer," she said. "It's
so personal. Everyone
doesn't like the same song.
'America the Beautiful' is a
great song, as is 'Over the
Rainbow.' Who could resist
certain songs? Songs like
'Both Sides Now' and
'Send in the Clowns' were
great songs for me."


Judy Collins
Judy Collins was one of
the earliest singers to per-
form works by Canadian
songwriter Leonard
Cohen, including the clas-
sic "Suzanne."
"Leonard Cohen's so
exceptionally poetic and
strong," she said. "The
(songs) are very different
from what was around.
They're not structured in
the same way. I just like
certain songs. It will
remain a mystery."
Ms. Collins is associated
with social activism and
says that is a product of


her upbringing.
"It came from my fami-
ly," she said. "We were told
we should be involved, let
our opinions be known,
vote. If you can change the
world, do it.
"You have to be careful
when you're singing a topi-
cal song. For me, it must be
timeless. I believe that pol-
itics is a part of what we
do. It's not just anti-war or
changing the world. It's
what your life is about. The
personal aspect is very
important to me. It was
never about a cause. Life
was the specific cause."
In 1992, Ms. Collins' only
son committed suicide
and she has written exten-
sively about the grieving
process. Her song, "Wings
of an Angel," was written
for him, and her art helped
her cope with the loss.
"It's the only thing I
know how do to that's
going to be healing," she
said. "The creative process
is a healing process. It's the
most direct route to where
the pain is. You don't want
to bypass that route.


"I was told early on not
to dull the pain or you
won't get to it," she said.
"For me, the most direct
route is the route of cre-
ativity. It's very painful, but
pain is the price we pay to
be on the planet."
"Wings of an Angel" is
one of Ms. Collin's favorite
songs because it brings her
son back to her. Some of
her other choices are more
surprising.
"'Amazing Grace' has to
be a favorite," she said. "I
like wonderful, big inter-
esting songs, and Amazing
Grace' is one of them. I
love the old Rodgers and
Hart love songs, and Irish
songs like 'Danny Boy.' It's
a great song. I also love the
Beatles. Everyone has their
own interpretation of a
song, applying it to their
own lives."
Judy Collins appears at
the Sunrise Theatre, 117 S.
Second St., Fort Pierce, at 3
p.m. Tickets are $45 and
$39. Call the box office at

STAR SCOPES
James Tucker
Week of 2-27-2009


Aries-March 21-April 19
Life is going your way. The
key to continuing success is
to listen to and follow your
instincts and heart, not your
head. Your very first impres-
sions are always the best.
Make quality time for your-
self everyday. Do something
for fun just because you
want to. Let others know
what you need. They' will
give it to you. Now everyone
is happy.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
New opportunities are open-
ing up all around you. How
do you know which ones to
pursue? First make a list.
Write them down. Then, if an
opportunity still feels good
in a week or two, take
action. If it doesn't, it wasn't
meant to be. This approach
keeps you from getting side-
tracked on no-win situations.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
When you give, you give
freely. Learn to feel in your
heart what others need from
you. You have a great reser-
voir of love and talent to
draw from. Being sensitive to
others' motives keeps you
moving in the right direction.
Sometimes less is more.
Your very first feeling is the
,best guide on when to act
and when not to.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
Your positive attitude has
brought you, safely through
many past challenges. It will
continue to bring you
through present ones. Keep
honing your skills and tal-
ents. Stay sharp. Keep your
mind and great heart open.
See your projects through to
completion and celebrate
the victories. Life is good.
You make it that way.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
Continue moving ahead
with those new ideas. You
have plenty of energy. It's
like you have guardian
angels watching over and
guiding you. With the intelli-
gence, heart and spirit work-
ing so strong, you set a shin-
ing example for others
around you. You are a win-
ner in the game of life.
Thanks for your light

Facts about white potatoes; scalloped potato recipes


H ello smart shoppers,
hope you had a great
week.
This week I'm going to
talk about the lowly potato
ari how sad, white potatoes
have gotten such a bad rap
in the past with the carb
nA'nsense.
remember, there are
gobd carbs and bad carbs,
just as there are good fats
and bad fats. Here are some
very interesting facts.
IIf your doctor prescribes
yqi to eat a baked potato,
you'd wonder what his
piblem was. A medium-
sied potato with skin gives
yqu 925 mg. of potassium to
Shp keep your blood
pressure in check.
You get 50 mg. of magne-
sium to help reduce your
risk for type 2 diabetes. You
get 5 grams of fiber to keep
i ,


your digestive system
running smoothly and your
appetite under control.
We're talking a medium-
sized potato and you must
eat the skin.
What makes a baked
potato a no-no is drowning
it in butter and sour cream.
Use a good-for-you butter
substitute, such as Smart
Balance and try fat-free sour
cream or a little reduced-fat
sour cream.
If you must add cheese,
try Kraft fat-free grated
cheddar: excellent.
Experts say never refriger-
ate potatoes, it turns the
starch into sugar. Here in
Florida, potatoes grow eyes
and rot. The eyes must be
removed as well as any
green under the skin. For
this reason, I've always
refrigerated potatoes and

had no problem until
recently.
I bought 10 pounds of
potatoes for Christmas and
had to refrigerate the extra.
Recently I made parsley
potatoes with the gorgeous
parsley I have in my garden;
the potatoes were sweet! No,
not sweet potatoes but
white ones that tasted like I
had sprinkled them with
sugar! The solution: if
possible, only buy what you
need.
A reader was frustrated in
her search for a recipe for
scalloped potatoes. Too bad


Scalloped potatoes have
always been considered a
high-fat food, but that really
isn't so. The original recipe
has a small amount of butter,
considering the number of
servings, and if you substitute
skim milk or evaporated skim
milk for whole milk, you will
have a wonderful, delicious
low-fat dish.
When you use evaporated
skim milk or sidm milk, you
will need to add the 4 table-
spoons of flour. When using
whole milk, 3 tablespoons of
flour will do and use a butter
substitute.


6 medium potatoes
1 medium onion
Salt and pepper
3-4 heaping tablespoons
flour
4 tablespoons butter or
butter substitute
Milk, either regular, low-
fat or skim


fork-tender, 1 hour to 1 hour
and 15 minutes. Remove
cover the last 15 minutes for
browning.
NOTE: You can prepare this
dish in advance and cook
half-way. Finish cooking
when ready to serve.

SCALLOPED
POTATOES WITH HAM

Follow recipe for scalloped
potatoes. Cut leftoverVirginia
ham in bite-size pieces. Layer
with potatoes and bake as
directed in originalrecipe.
The addition of the ham
makes this a main dish
casserole.

PORK CHOPS AND
SCALLOPED
POTATOES
Serves 4-6
Regular and low fat

This is a delicious one-dish
meal. The original recipe for
scalloped potatoes requires


butter. Because you're using
meat, there is no need to use
butter. The original recipe
called for the chops to be fried
in oil. I brown them in
cooking spray. Use 2 pork
chops per person, trim off all
visible fat. Brown well, set
aside. Drain any fat.
Follow basic recipe for
scalloped potatoes. Add the
milk to the pan and scrape up
any browned drippings from
the pork chops. Remove from
heat. Use an ovenproof
casserole with a cover. Treat
with cooking spray. Layer
chops, then potatoes and
onions in casserole. Sprinkle
with salt, pepper and flour.
Continue layering, ending
with potatoes. Pour on milk,
cover and bake in a 350-
degree oven, 1 hour to 1 hour
and 15 minutes. Remove the
cover for the last 15 minutes
for browning.
When using skim milk, the
gravywill break up slightly.
This is fine, it just means
you're eating something good

Remedies for


damaged palms


ow that the coldest
part of our tropical
winter is over, many
of us are looking at brown
and cold burnt leaves on of
our tropical palm trees.
During a normal winter,
the colder temperatures will
have a tendency to slow
down the metabolism of the
plant, which can make
palms more susceptible to
disease and infection,
especially when the warm
spring temperatures begin.
To add insult to injury,
severe cold or frost damage
can affect an otherwise
healthy palm for years to
come. In cases of a severe
hard freeze, all that might
remain alive on the palm is
the heart of the plant, which
can also be referred to as
the bud.
In addition, freeze
damage can limit how
much water arrives at the
leaves of the plant. This can
cause the browning effect
that you often see after a
cold snap.
In order for your palms to
regain the health needed for
a long life, there are some
steps that you must take.
After all danger of frost
and freeze is over, use
pruning shears to remove
the damaged parts of the
leaves. Remove the leaves
even if they have a spotted
appearance.
Try to keep as many of the
green leaves on the plant as
possible, as they will be
needed in order to offer
nutrients to the plant
during the recovery process.
After properly pruning
your plants, spray with a
fungicide (liquid copper is a
good choice). Follow the
label directions for the
proper dilution rate. You
should repeat this applica-
tion in about two weeks.
There are some cases
where almost all the leaves
of the palm are damaged
and must be removed. In
these extreme cases, apply
some fungicide directly into

Finally, once thewarme
weather arrives and the
palms begin to develop

important to fertilize with

ments such as iron.
You can also supplement

Remember that some of

This will eventually grow
out as thetree recovers
from its tnumatic experi-
ence.
Some of hese same
practices cEa be used for
many of yotr other cold-
damaged shrubs or trees.
Once all danger of frost is,
over, usually tfter the first
week of Marci, it is a good
idea to pruneldl the dead or
damaged branches from
your plants.
Remember, rever cut
more then one-hird of the
growth from a pant at any
one given time. Once the
warmer spring tenpera-
tures arrive, alontwith the
rainy season, rapil growth
will help repair mich of the
damage that our extremely
cold winter took ou on
your plants.

PORT ST. LUCIE Flori-
da Atlantic University stu-
dents majoring in social
work are putting class-
room experience to the
test while providing help
to more than 20 'social
service agencies through-
out the Treasure Coast.
The field education pro-
gram, a critical compo-
nent of the bachelor's and
master's degrees in social
work, allows students to
apply their knowledge by
working with actual
clients under the supervi-
sion of a field educator.
A large variety of Trea-
sure Coast agencies have
participated in FAU's field
education program,
including substance abuse
programs,, regular and
alternative schools, juve-


nile justice programs,
mental health programs
and children's services.
Employers not only ben-
efit from the free assis-
tance, but also from the
students' enthusiasm,
fresh perspective and
most current field knowl-
edge.
BSW students report to
their field office for a min-
imum of 400 hours during
one semester. MSW stu-
dents are required to
report a total of 600 hours.
The school of social'
work's records indicate
that in 2007, FAU social
work students completed
a total of 95,200 service
hours in one year to more
than 200 agencies from
Indian River to Miami-
Dade counties, and west
to the Glades and Okee-
chobee.
"The FAU interns bring


passion and academic
backgrounds, which are
special attributes at a time
when resources are scarce
and needs are great," said
Cris Adams, United Way of
St. Lucie's vice president of
community impact.
"It's an honor to aide in
their educational journey
and to expand their hori-
zons."
"The field education
program offers both the
student and the agency a
future employment
screening process," said.
Arlene Kaplan, director of
field education in FAU's
school of social work, "and
it provides area social
workers the opportunity
to give back to the profes-
sion."

versity at (772) 878-3300.

"For four seasons, Willie
Boston was the one who lit

(-Now, he's doing the same
for the St. Lucie Bobcats,
helping the team to a 5-0
record.
: "This year we're pushing
real hard,"Boston said..
k'We're picking up where
ae left off with the Fire."
Last season, the semi-
ro Fire was one of the
lite teams in the Southern
statess Football League.
mpeting in their fourth
ason, the Fire was unde-
ted for most of the year
ifte. ring a, nip-and-

Petersburg Sharks, 21-16.
-= The-Fire regrouped and
appeared to heading to the
championship game with
ply the Sarasota Million-
res a team Fort Pierce
d handled quite easily -
Stheir way.
"The Millionaires came
money in the semifinals
ad beat the Fire 41-35.
"It was heartbreaking,"
oston said of the defeat.
'You get to the semifinals
and lose to a team that you
had beat twice."
'The loss was the final
game for the Fire, as the
team folded this past Sep-
tember. The news was dis-
pointing for Boston.
'I felt kind of bad, but
en the Bobcats came
long," Boston said. "It's
een a smooth transition.
We're running the same
tind of defense that we did
rith the Fire. Plus, the
4iajority of the Fire
defense is on the Bobcats."
I After last year's near
I~iss, the 30-year-old was
Hesitant about coming into
is season with high
expectations, but the
tiam's play early on quick-
L dispelled those notions.
"After a couple of presea-
Epn games, I realized that
is team could be some-
ting special and win a
ampionship," Boston
id. "I've never won a
championship. I've always
me close."
The Bobcats opened
eir Florida Football
lance regular season
ith a 26-0 mauling of the
nature Coast Knights. St.
ucie followed up with a
trilling 28-24 victory over
t.e Magic City Bulls. The
bobcats handed the
defending champions their
first home loss since 2005.
S"We're starting off pretty
,od," Boston said. "We
lave to stay focused."
(After another laugher,
tiis time at the expense of
e Polk County War
eagles, the Bobcats faced
t aie Bradenton Gladiators.
Boston had his best
ame of the young season,
'cording 13 tackles and


finally felt back to my old
self again," Boston said. "I
felt like 100 percent."
Unfortunately for Boston
it didn't last for long.
"I got sick with a touch of
pneumonia," Boston said.
"I didn't think I would play
against Muck City, but I
showed up and was only 60
or 70 percent.
"I only got one good hit
in?.
The Bobcats' defensive
leader was missed, but his
teammates picked up the
slack and held off the
Starrs 20-13 to remain
undefeated at the season's&
halfway point. St. Lucie'S'
next matchup is against
the South Brevard Rams.
"I don't know much
about them, but that
they're 3-2," Boston said.
"We can't take any team for
granted."

rable year for the former

Basketball team goes undefeated, wins title


By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST. LUCIE While
it's been a while since the
76ers of NBA fame have
won a championship, the
local version of the squad
made it look easy this sea-
son in racing to an unde-
feated season.
The Port St. Lucie Parks
and Recreation junior bas-
ketball league squad made
up of 10-and 11-year-olds
went 11-0, capping the
campaign with a 24-21 win
over the Spurs in the title
game on Feb. 7. The 76ers
dominated their six-team
division made up of city
residents.


"We really didn't have
many close games," head
coach Gregg Pizzi said. "We
won most of our games by
double digits."
The 76ers opened up with
a 34-20 win over the Lakers
before facing a tough Spurs
team. The 76ers eked out a 5-
point decision before putting
together an impressive four-
game stretch that culminat-
ed with blowout victories
over the Celtics and Lakers.
On Jan. 10, the 76ers faced
the Spurs again. The out-
come was a lot different from
their November meeting.
The 76ers came away with
their most lopsided victory
of the season, 33-9.
"We stress fundamentals


and hard work," Pizzi said.
"We go over the same things
over and over. We always say,
'1-2-3 hard work.'"
The 76ers finished the reg-
ular season with two more
wins, earning a first-round
bye in the playoffs.
"After the first game
(against the Lakers) we real-
ized we had a pretty good
team," guard Chris Preston
said. "It was great that we
went undefeated."
The layoff had no effect as
the team won their semifinal
matchup with the Suns, 32-
16. The game was almost a
mirror image of the finale of
the regular season where the
76ers won 29-13.
The 76ers took on the


Spurs for the third time in the
championship, and
appeared to be cruising to
another easy win with a 10-
point lead heading into the
fourth quarter. The Spurs
went on a late run, making
things interesting in the
game's final moments.
"It was a little closer than I
wanted it to be," Preston
said. "We still came out with
a win."
Preston's sentiments were
echoed by his coach.
"You only have to win by
one," Pizzi said. "We got
sloppy in the last couple of
minutes. I give them credit
for coming back.
"We were also missing one
player who was sick and real-


ly didn't play. We were out of
sync because you have to
play each kid two quarters
per game and that
messed up our rotation."
Pizzi's son, Vincent,
managed to see some
action despite needing a
Shaq-sized box of tissues.
"I did play in the game a
little bit," Vincent said. "I
didn't get as many points,
but it was still very exciting.
"We had a lot of team-
work and positive
thoughts."
While Pizzi doesn't know
what his team will look like
next year, it is a safe bet they
will have a lot of marks in the

Blue fish


and cool


water


t is all about the blue-
fish. As long as we have
this cool water, they will
be here in good numbers.
Surf anglers casting
spoons and cut bait in the
morning hours will find
plenty. Three- to 5-pound
class fish are the norm, but
as we get into the next few
weeks, the bigger blues will
make a strong showing.
In with them is a mix of
Spanish mackerel. These
are the bait stealers. They
have a smaller mouth and
are able to get your bait
and not the hook. If this is
the problem you are
having, go to a smaller
hook and the mackerels
will be yours.
Pompano on sand fleas
and clam strips are in and
out throughout the day. A
long cast will bring best
results.
Whiting like warmer
water, so if they are your
target, wait until afternoon
when the sun warms the
edge. Plenty of big whiting
have made the catch list.
River anglers from Bear
Point south found plenty of
trout. The blue fish have
been eating anything that's
been put in the water. The
only solution was move to
the next area because the
blues were only a few casts
away.
There were plenty of slot
trout through most of the
day. Red fish were on the
west side of the river from
county line north in some

Gearing up for the Classic M


It's not every week that
we get to see the best
players in the game
close up. Sure, some of
you have those gigantic
60-inch high-definition
televisions that allow you
to see the sweat bead up
on their foreheads as they
line up a 3-foot putt, but
that isn't quite like being
in the same room.
This week coming up,
March 2-8, is our opportu-
nity to watch the best
talent on the planet play
the sport we so love. I'm
talking about the 2009
Honda Classic at the PGA
National Resort and Spa in
Palm Beach Gardens.
This marks the third
year for the Honda at the
Champions Course at PGA
National. The Champions
Course comes with a rich
history, having hosted a
Ryder Cup, a PGA Champi-
onship and several Senior
PGA Championships.
The Honda has a rich
history of being the tour's
nomadic tournament,
constantly moving from
one venue to another. It
appears to have finally
found a place to call
home.
One thing I know for
certain is that the golf
course will be a stern test
for these guys. I had the
pleasure of playing the
course a few weeks ago
and was pleased to see the
rough growing up very
nicely. The deepest rough,
which is not too far from
the edges of the fairway,
will challenge the game's
top players. Depending on
the lie, you may see
players attempting great
shots to the green or
simply wedging out to the
short stuff.
If the winds stay up, we
could see some higher-
than-normal scores and a
leader board filled with
the best names in the
business.
Before the Honda moved
here in 2007, J.ae Nicklaus -
tweaked his already tough .
Rear-TTap (holes 15-17)-to-
a.i t. l.pay:_O'tarmental. ..
and physical skijlsil-cioig
down the stretch. There
will be no respite this year,
either.
Jack also worked on the
other holes, lengthening
some with new tees.
Others were toughened
with added bunkers
guarding the greens and
'fairway landing areas.
Defending champion,
Ernie Els, along with
world's No. 2 player, Sergio
Garcia will be playing.
Camilo Villegas, Tadd
Fujikawa, Kenny Perry and
Davis Love III, will also be


here sharpening their
games for the Masters.
To help expose our next
generation of golfers to
the best players, children
under 15 will be admitted
free for the entire week
when accompanied by an
adult.
The Kids Zones, located
on top of the action at the
17th and 18th greens will
include several activities
for kids throughout the
week.
In my opinion, one of
the best days to go to any
tour event is Tuesday. The
pros are there to practice,
play a few money games
among themselves and
even test out some new
equipment to see if it will
make the bag when the
strokes really count.
Many players will chat
with the galleries on
Tuesday. They are more
likely to give autographs
and are generally much
more relaxed. What I like
best is seeing all the sweet
toys they get to try out.
Nearly every major
manufacturer and many
smaller ones are on hand
to fit these guys with
product. If one player
wants a specific shaft in a
certain head, it gets done.
Some of the guys hit the
course with far more than
the 14-club limit that the
rules state.
If you go to the Honda
Classic, and it's very easy
to find, bring your best
walking shoes. The course
is relatively flat and there


are numerous spots to set
up a chair, park your
behind for a few hours
and watch the players
come to you.
Behind the first green is
one good spot. Here the
third green, and tees for
number four and nine are
close by allowing you to
see plenty of action
without venturing far.
Atop the hill between
the 12th and 15th greens is
a prime spot that fills
quickly. You can watch the
approach shots into 12
and see the entire par-3
15th, along with the 13th
tee.
In the mornings, the
best place to go is the
driving range. Watch the
pros warm up and see just
how seriously they take
their job. There's a lot we
can learn just by observ-
ing.
With several ticket
packages available, there
is bound to be one for
every budget. Ticket prices
start as low as $15.
For ticket information,
call the Honda Classic at
(866) 846-6328 or pur-
chase tickets directly
online at www.hondaclas-
sic.com. To get to PGA
National, take Florida's
Turnpike to the Palm
Beach Gardens exit or
Interestate-95 to PGA
Boulevard, and head west.
The resort is the left and
there will be signs to help
you find your way.

Boston
From page B 11

one in 2008.
Boston lost his 8-year-
old daughter, Wilnekia, to
cancer last year.
"Playing football defi-
nitely helped take my
mind of it," Boston said.
"If I didn't have football
I'd probably think about
it more.
"From that point on,
I've been playing for her,"
he said. "She used to
come to all my games."
Boston is confident
Wilnekia will be watching
when the four-time All
Star will be inducted into
the Southern States Foot-
ball League Hall of Fame
later this year.
"I'll look up to the sky
and say, 'This is for you,'"
Boston said.


Fishing
From page B12

pretty shallow water.
Anglers, look for
activity in the skinny
water, long cast in the
area and be ready. You
will get one shot at best
two and the fish will
move on. Soft, rubber
baits top the list. Cast
over the fish and move
the baits back to the fish.
Offshore was scattered
at best, with boats
reporting catches from 30
feet out to 250 feet. There
was no pattern and lots of
reasons for the fish to be
there, they just weren't
there when your boat
was.
I heard two anglers in
the store talking about a
weed line in 200 feet.
They called it the perfect


weed line, one was
catching and the other
was fishing; same bait,
same location.
When trolling a weed
line, slow down and let
your bait swim. Move it
slowly into position and
when you get one on,
move away from the line.
Yes, the mackerels are
thick south of the inlet.
The favored bait is the
glass minnow jig from
Gulf Stream. Not sure
why, but they sure like
that jig.
I know this sound may
sound crazy, but when
was the last time you
showed the anglers on
your boat where you kept
the life jackets?

Snook Nook Bait and
Tackle shop in Jensen
Beach.


Basketball
From page B12

win column. Last year,
Pizzi went 13-0 with his
Duke Blue Devils squad
and he has quickly built
a reputation for being a
brilliant instructor.
"I think he's a great
coach," Preston said.
"He taught us all the
fundamentals drib-
bling and defense."
Pizzi enjoys the acco-
lades, but said his for-
mula for winning isn't all
that complicated.
"It all comes down to
basics," Pizzi said. "Each
year we go through a
draft and you get differ-
ent kids so it has to. They
have to work hard in
practice on dribbling,
passing, defense and
shooting."
