PORT ST. LUCIE Most Port St. Lucie
City Council members say they're willing
to corlsider privately-funded holiday dis-
plays of a menorah and nativity scene at
City Hall.
"I'm open to reviewing it;" Council-
woman Michelle Berger said.
The Rev. Bryan Longworth, associate
pastor of Covenant Tabernacle in Port St.
Luce and the Rev. .M Albright, a former
chaplain fiornm Piibulgh, phn to.
approach the Cirt Council about the dis-'
plays, they said last week.
They believe that in light of a recent
U.S. Supreme Court decision, govern-
mental entities can display religious sym-
bols funded, by private donations, the
Rev. Longworth said.
They are requesting the city allow pri-
vately-funded displays of a menorah and
nativity scene at City Hall during the holi-
day season,
Last year, they made the same request,
but the City Council took no action.
A U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Feb. 25,
in the case of Pleasant Grove City, Utah
vs. Summum, prompted the Revs. Long-
worth and Albright to renew their call for
the displays.
In that case, the court unanimously
reversed a lower court ruling, preventing
the city from refusing to accept a private-
ly-.funded monument from Summum, a
religious organization.
The court ruling states the government
can accept or reject such monuments,
such as the Ten Commandments.

plans to promote tourism.
Last week, a delegation
from the Bahamas visited
St. Lucie Coumty'to not only
discuss tourism, but possi-
bilities of expanding the
relationship ito; tlheareas
of science and education
and industry.
"It's a broader picture
than just tourism, but that's,
'(the tourism) part of the;
picture," said Gregory,
Moss, president of The
Grand Bahama Chamber of

Possibilities include rela-
tionships between indus-
tries in St. Lucie County and
the Bahamas counterparts
,and opportunities for
Bahamian students to
attend colleges in St. Lucie
County, Mr. Moss said.
He said that 'no details;

PORT ST. LUCIE Five'
years ago, city officials were
pondering what the. could
do with about 20 acres of
land near the north fork of
the St. Lucie River.
The land, located just
south of Port St. Lucie Boule-
vard on Westmoreland
Avenue, was bought with
Florida Trust for Public Land
money and its use was highly
restricted.
Councilman Chris Cooper
proposed using it for a
botanical garden.
Five years later, Mr. Coop-
er said, he didn't expect it to
take this long to get the proj-

He voiced frustration with
the slow process of moving
the project through govern-

the $3 million project.
Brad Keen, a Port St. Lucie
Parks and Recreation
Department official, said the,
state originally approved the
project, provided that plants
near the North Fork of the St.
Lucie River are protected.


The city had to submit
plans and then make
amendments during a peri-

BRUXISM
Q: My husband grinds his teeth at night. What can we do about it?
A: The technical name of your husband's condition is bruxism, derived from the Greek and
meaning, essentially, to gnash the teeth. People with this problem are prone to grinding
their teeth when under stress or while they are sleeping. This can result in sore jaws and
teeth, a dull headache, and, after time, loosened teeth and considerable wear on them.
Bruxism can actually crack tooth enamel,, which is the hardest element in the body. If the
condition is the result of stress, exercise is an excellent way to address it. Exercise is proven
successful in reducing stress.
Another possible step for your husband is a mouth guard his dentist can fit him with to protect teeth at
night. The first step is to talk with your dentist about the condition and determine whether an outside
factor, like stress, is at the root of the problem. An abnormal bit or missing teeth can also contribute to
grinding at night. Correcting those flaws, whether through orthodontic or prosthodontic work, may bring
the situation under, control. Your dentist is the best source for information about the condition and about I2
ways to cure or .aleviae it. .

three other Forest Grove
students, on April 4 in

In the Math Counts con-

dents in Florida.".
Zoe said during the Math
Counts competition she
solved a series of math

One question involved
several digits with an X in

the number formed by the

evenly by three.
Zoe also worked with

"It was an opportunity

she added.
Besides Zoe, the team
included her 11-year-old
sister, Maeve; Carlee Berry,

lyn Dougherty, 12, of Port

The students created the
play based on one of sever-

them.
In the one they chose,
they had to find a way to.

form of Hercules) complete
his labors.
According to Greek
mythology, King Eurytheus
ordered Heracles to per-
form 12 labors. The stu-
dents had to perform a play

one of the 12 labors, plus

Others options to choose
from included teaching a
robotic character and
superstitions;
Carlee said the group
chose the Heracles sce-
nario because "we felt
everyone was going to be
doing the superstition
one."
In that scenario, students
had 'to incorporate two
superstitions into a play
and then come up with a
new superstition.
The Heracles scenario
offered a lot of room for
creativity, she said.
In their play, Carlee
played a cousin of Hera-
cles, Caitlyn .played the
king and Maeve was Hera-
cles.
Zoe was a lion with a cos-
tume made of colored recy-
cled bags. She also played a
mythical creature.
The play was limited to a
maximum of 8 minutes,

Tough job market leads applicants to Anny


By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
ST. LUCIE, COUNTY Increasing
unemployment on the Treasure Coast
is leading people to look for work'in an
unlikely place: the U.S. Army.
At 8.2 percent, Martin County's
unemployment rate surpasses the
state's 7.6 percent, according to the U.S.
Bureau of Labor Statistics, and has job
seekers turning to the federal govern-
ment for job security.
Local Army recruiters say traffic in
their hiring stations has increased up to
35 percent in the last year.
But there's a catch: many of the job
candidates won't ever make it past the
interview.
"We get them coming in, but it does-
n't mean they're qualified," said Sgt. 1st
Class Dacia Peek, commander of a
recruiting station that covers Okee-
chobee and.St. Lucie counties.
The commander, who has been a
recruiter since 2002, says applicants
arrive at her office daily. She estimates
her office sees about 10 more potential
recruits each week than it did last year.
Applicants are older too, ranging in
age from the late 20s to 40s, compared
to late teens and mid-20s. The Army
requires recruits to sign up by age 41.
"We're having people come in who've
never considered joining before," she
said.


Indiantown resident Melina Yeleny,
for instance, whose work week shrunk
to 27 hours from 40, says she's begun to
pay attention to television ads for mili-
tary jobs.
The 26-year-old waitress has a high-
school diploma and some college cred-
it. Her fear of serving in a war-zone has
stopped her from inquiring further. But
with her paycheck suddenly trimmed,
she says she's staying open to any
options.
"That's one of the things that frus-
trate me," Sgt. Peek said. "People are
looking at serving their country as a last
resort."
But despite some reservations, the
applications keep coming from job
seekers drawn by an array of federally.
funded perks..
Army recruits qualify for 100 percent
coverage of their college tuition by the
military, for instance: They can also
earn between $47,000 arid $81,000 for
tuition after they complete their enlist-
ment.
The Army's offer of free medical and
dental care is also proving to be an
attractive perk, recruiters say.
"The Army. takes care of you from
head to toe," Sgt. Peek said.,
Unmarried recruits get free housing
and utilities, whereas married soldiers
get a housing subsidy based on the cost
of living in their ZIR cqde. Recruits who
live' on an Army bfase get free roomnfndT

board.
The number of paid vacation days is
often a draw, recruiters say, with the
Army offering 30 days in the first year of
employment. Soldiers begin to accu-
mulate vacation days as soon as they
enlist, meaning theytypically have five
paid days off by the time they finish
basic training.
Recruits can purchase food, clothing,
shoes and other needs tax-free on
Army bases. They also have access to
auto-repair services, gyms, swimming
pools, bowling alleys and other free
recreational outlets.
"People who are coming in are realiz-
-ing the importance of benefits in taking
care of their families, especially in this
job market," Sgt. Peek said.
But the job is not without its draw-
backs.
Chief among them is the possibility
that recruits might have to deploy to
war zones and face dangerous and
even life-threatefing situations.
Minus the perks, entry-level base pay
is relatively low, at about $1,294 per
month.
But the security of a federal job far
outweighs the possibility of long-term
unemployment for job seekers, such as
Ms. Yeleny.
"With the wars in Iraq and the Mid-
dle East, I don't think Uncle Sam will be
laying off military personnel." she said.
"At leasfI,'d kqow I'd have a jobto goto."

From page Al
Pierce, said the aim is to find
ways for St. Lucie County
and the Bahamas to com-
bine resources for a long-
term mutual benefit. Comet
Creative is spearheading
efforts to increase tourism
for the St. Lucie County
. Tourism Development
Council.
As for tourism, Mr. Moss
said, a large part of it for
Bahamians involves shop-
ping.
Traditionally he said, the
. largest number of Bahami-
ans have gone to the Miami-
Fort Lauderdale area or
Orlando.
He said he believes St.
Lucie County and the sur-'
rounding area offers enough
shopping opportunities to
attract Bahamian tourists.
One problem, he said, is
transportation.
In the Miami area, large
ships allow Bahamians to
buy a lot of goods and trans-
port the items home on the

same boat.
That is lacking in St. Lucie
County, he said.
But, Mr. Moss said, he
believes if St. Lucie county
tourism officials are commit-
ted to attracting Bahamians
they can make that happen.
"If there is a will, there is a
market," he said.
Efforts are under way to
create events that will fit in
with the partnership.
Hugh D. Morrow, presi-
dent of Snyder Management
Services in Palm City, said
Snyder ig working on a joint

ation" event for St. Lucie
County and the Bahamas.
Although details haven't
been finalized, he said, one
possibility is an event in St.
Lucie County one week and
a related golf tournament


the following week in the
Bahamas.
The hope would be that
Bahamians and St. Lucie
County residents would
attend both events, he said.
It's likely, he said, the golf
tournament will not occur
until 2011.
Medical research is anoth-
er possible area of coopera-
ton.
St. Lucie County officials
told Bahamians about efforts
to create a research coast
that will include AIDS
research.
Mr. Moss said the
Bahamas has a privately
owned firm that manufac-
tures AIDS drugs.
, Ocean research and devel-
opment of green technology
were other areas mentioned
by participants.

INCLUSIONS.
There is hardly a gemstone which
is completely "clean". Most of.the
time, they contain foreign matter
or some kind of dislocation or
irregularity in the crystal lattice.
Sometimes only under the micro-
scope can these "flaws" be seen.
In the lingo of the trade, one does
not speak, p,flaws, bul rather ol
inclusions. because te term,,
FLAW has a derogatory meaning
that is not justified. Since inclu-
sions are not accidental appear-
ances but rather are subject to
strict conformities with natural
law, they can tell a lot about the
origin of the gemstone deposits
and, in addition to that, they help
in their identification Even though
each gemstone has its individual
inclusion history, there ate never-
theless forms of inclusions which,
can be grouped together and can'.
be associated with .specific gem-
stone types and/or with gemstone
imitations. Inclusions.of minerals
are quite common, such as those
of the same material o& of a for-
eign .one. Even if small, they pro-
vide a constructive picture ,of the.
formation of the surrounding crys-
tal (the host crystal). Included
minerals can be older than the
host crystal, as they were just sur-
rounded. They can also have
been formed from a melt at the
same time as the host crystal,
which surrounded the smaller
ones because its growth rate was,
greater. There are also mineral,
inclusions -that are younger than
thehost crystal; these' were
formed out of liquids that entered
into the crystal through cracks
and fissures. In some casds inclu-
sions form within the crystal as it
cools.

I (772) 465-5504
or e-mailnews@hometounneuisol.com.
Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous
Statements. Statements of fact will be checked for
accuracy.


Parking lot cops

There is a parking lot at U.S. I and Prima Vista Boulevard,
west of Bank of America. Almost every day two to three coun-
ty sheriffs are sitting in the back for hours doing nothing. Yes,
our tax dollars at work.

Online payments

The ranter cited that only city officials could pay their bill
while she/he has to go to pay her bill in person.
I wanted to inform you (and the ranter) that this is not the
d case at all.
As a resident of Port St. Lucie, I pay the majority of my bills
online, including my water bill.
It's actually very simple. The bill or any bill you receive,
gives you their e-mail address for payments.
www.cityofpsl.com is the Web address. It says plain as day:
pay water/sewer bill on their home page.
You will need the pin number that is on your bill.
You also can print out your entire transaction.
I don't understand how someone can overlook this infor-
mation on his or her monthly bill. I also don't understand
where the ranter came up with "only city officials" are
allowed to pay their bill online.
I am also concerned that Hometown News would print
' something false, misleading their readers.
Editor's note: We did nor print misleading information.
Here is what the rant stated, in part: "I have to 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
nme." Read the fidl rant by logging onto www.hometownnew-
sol.com, Feb. 27 rants and raves

More on parked cops

I agree about the rant talking about the cops wasting
money. They do sit around and just talk to each other, wast-
ing taxpayer's money. You can see two or three cruisers just
Sitting together in a parking lot talking.
On' U.S. I, you can see three or four of them following each
'. other domn the road. We have city and county police, and
they are all wasting money.

G A response to pride fest

I can't believe that we still have such ignorant members of
the.community. If we have a St. Patrick's Day celebration,
Greek Festival, Okioberfest and Black History Month, why
can't the gay and lesbian community celebrate as well?
It's a shame that we still have to worry about who's doing
] what and where they are doing it. Why can't we all just be
happy and get along?

About President's Day

Not all the working class has this holiday off. Why the sar-
castic"thanks Obama?"
What aboui his predecessors? Since the holiday was start-
ed, are they to blame also?
Disgruntled Republican maybe? Are there not more impor-
tant subjects to complain about?
It's time to move forward and stop blaming the other guy
for all our problems and work together for the common
good. Yes, we can! :

No more soda

After being a loyal Pepsi drinker for 45 years, I'm switching
to water.
In Appalachia, Mountain Dew has had a whole lot to do
with tooth decay. Pepsi is now sending dentists to help after
first claiming that the people there did not know how to drink
Ssoda responsibly.
In Florida they have increased the price of canned Pepsi
products by 33 percent. In New jersey and Pennsylvania over
the holidays, a 12-pack of Pepsi could be purchased at the
price of five cartons for $10. Here, we can get five eight-pack
cartons for $10 if there is a holiday or a special sale. That's 33
percent more than we paid a year ago.
From what I've been told, the other soda manufacturers
are following suit. Maybe people will stop buying soda and
they can get a handout from the government.

Working without a mouse can be done
"' .a ,use.-*,,ca


f you use computers
long enough, it's bound
to happen; you go to
move the mouse and
nothing happens.
You may even get a pop-
up from Windows saying "a
mouse or pointing device
was not found" or some
such message, but the end
result is the same--no
mouse.
So, what do you do? If
you have the time to mess
around with it, you can try
shutting down the
machine and checking to
'see whether the mouse is
still plugged in, and then
re-boot.
Sometimes that's all it
takes to fix the lost mouse
syndrome, but wait! If the
mouse isn't working, how
do you shut down the
machine? How do you
click "Start" then "Shut
Down" without a clicker?
And what happens if after
re-starting the mouse still
doesn't work?
Don't panic. Windows
was designed to workwith
a mouse, but did you know
that you can use Windows
pretty effectively with just
the keyboard? That's right.
.Most of the things that we
do with the mouse, such as
selecting and clicking, can
be done if you pay close
attention to where the
computer is focused and
think about what you're


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY


doing.
-Let's take it from the top.
Let's say you just powered
up your computer, and
you get a message that
there is no mouse present
(or you go to use it and the
S.mouse justwon'tnmovei. '
You'd like to tr\ iebuoung,
but you just don't have
time, so ou decide to
check your e-mail (or
whatever) without the
mouse. Here's a crash
course on navigating
through Windows using
only the keyboard.
First, press and hold the
"CTRL" button and then
hit "ESC." This pops up the
Windows Start menu
where everything starts.
Next, press the UP ar row
on the keyboard. Notice -'
that the first option in the
Start menu highlights. This
is your visual clue that the
computer is "focused" on
that particular item. Press
the UP arrow a couple
more times uhtilAll
Programs is highlighted
.and then-hit the RIGHT
arrow. Now the list of
programs installed on your
computer pops up. Use the"


ariowkeys to select the
program that you t\ant to
run, and when you have it
highlighted, hit the ENTER
button. The computer acts
just like you clicked it, with
the mouse, and the
program launches.
With Windows, we direct
'the computer's focus by
pointing at objects or
icons (with the mouse)
and thenclicking to trigger
whatever action we're
pointing at. The arrows oh6,
tfie keybdard ias'vt=l as ''
the tab button) are ways to
move the computer's focus
around the screen until
you have selected the
option or icon that you
want to run. Then, once
you have the computer
focused on what you want
to do, the "Enter" button
acts like the clicker (or the
space bar, in some cases.
* The key to using the
computer without the
mouse is following the
focus of the machine. You
have to pay close attention
to what's highlighted lor to
what buttons have the
little dotted line)'in order
to get it 0o work properly.
The cool thing about it is
that these keyboard steps
will work even with the
mouse present. Go ahead.
give it a try. It's good
practice for that inevitable
time when your mouse
dies, but you still need to


get some work done.
On another subject, I
'would like to remind "
everyone that on March
14, I will be working with
the Indian River Sheriff's
Office, helping host an
official "Protect \our
Identity Day!" at the Outlet
Mall substation, just west
of 95 on State.Road 60 in
Vero Beach.
,, We.willbe starting at 10
a.m. and plan on finishing
up around 2 i0.m. I will be ,
speaking along with'others
on how to best "Deter,
Detect and Defend"
against identity theft and
answering questions, too.
(Even computer-related
ones.)
If you have questions or
would like to have me
speak to you or your
group, please call me at
(772) 408-0680.
Identity theft is a real
threat and everyone is
concerned about protect-
ing themselves. Unfortu-
nately most people are
doing it wrong.

s is si. months since
Roy died and it ha
passed more quickly
than I could have imag-
ined.
When I thought I would
devote the six months
after his death to getting ,
myself healthy physically
and emotionally, I was a
little unrealistic. It will be
awork in'progress andl
won't set a time limit.
I have learned that grief
doesn't have a timetable
and if you have one, you'll
have to adjust it. I am
doing better than I was,
but as I have said before,
grief is not linear. Some'
days are better than
others andlit is impossible
to predict what will send
you running for a tissue.
I have learned that
while loneliness and
,being alone are hard
things to bear, they
present opportunities, as
well. I have the chance to
shape my.life going
forward as I would like it
to be. I am trying to clear
out not only physical


clutter, but emotiofial
clutter.
I value calm and peace a
great deal now and I am
String to avoid things that
disturb that. I want to,
think positively and Ilam
trying to surround myself
with people who make me
feel good.
That may sound like I've
read one-too-many self-
help books, but in truth, I
haven't read any. It was
just a growing realization I
had as I grappled with
being alone and tried to
find some good in it.
That's when I realized I
could change some things
in my life that made me
feel bad.
I have been exercising
faithfully and have found
that it is a great stress-
reliever. I have also
started taking a yoga class.'


I am surprised, both at
how strong it makes me
feel and how relaxing it is.
I look and feel better and
that is a great morale
booster.
I have continued grief
counseling at Treasure
Coast Hospice and have
found it invaluable. For
Valentine's Day, I went to
a lovely tea there and had
a chance to share memo-
ries with others.
I have learned that just
as it is possible to let grief
overwhelm you, it is also
possible to try to pretend
it doesn't exist. Neither
works very well.'
I kept trying to do
things, hoping I'd find
something that made the
pain go away. When I
stopped fighting it so
hard, I had a little more
energy to do some of.
these other things. ,
Going forward, I-will
take baby steps, trying
new things and seeing
what works for me. I
expect that I'll try some-
thing new and find it's not,


my thing. I will try hard
not to see that as a step
backwards, but as part of
my making a new life as a
"civilian."
I was married a long.
time and being single will.
take time, too. I have tried
to reach out to people
,who are single, either by
choice or chance, so that
there are more people
who are free in the
evening or on weekends,
which are difficult times
for me.
What lies ahead? I don't
know. Next week is my
birthday. I plan to cele-
brate with friends. And
yes, I will celebrate the
progress I've made. I can
just hear Roy saying, "I'm
very proud of you."
I'm.proud of me, too.

Karate champion is minister of self-defense


By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com
While some might say
that records are made to be
broken, Fred LaSala feels
the same way about boards,
concrete and barriers.
The 48-year-old, who
operates several karate
schools in St. Lucie County,
lists ,three world, power
breaking championships
among his ever-growing list
of .accomplishments, but
his primary goal is reaching
out to others.
"People say to me, 'what
do you do? Beat them up
and then pray for them?'"
LaSala said.
"We offer a Christ-cen-
tered martial art," LaSala
said. "The 'emphasis is on
the Lord; It's all about disci-
pline."
ih wasn't always that way,
for the White City resident.
"I was a spoiled brat,"
LaSala said. "My family put
me in karate school and I
didn't want to listen so I
originally quit."
'As a teenager, LaSala
turned his attention to
wrestling where he quickly
excelled.
"I wrestled throughout
high school," LaSala said. "I
stayed with it and went to a
lot of wrestling camps."
During that time, LaSala
didn't completely close the
door on karate. Despite
being unable to find the
right fit, his knowledge of
martial arts and grappling
proved to be a deadly com-
bination.
"I became pretty danger-
ous," LaSala said. "I was like
Rocky (Balboa). They called
me '"the regulator."'
"If somebody owed you
money, you would come to
me and I would get your
money."
Still searching for
answers, LaSala discovered
Stai chuan do. Founded by
grand master Ken Champ,
the martial art combines
different styles of karate
:.and !self-defense,, incorpo-

rating the best techniques
available from disciplines
such as jujitsu and aikidp.
LaSala's training proved
immensely beneficial, not
just immediately; but over
the course of his career. He
has won 13 state champi-
onships in fighting, break-
ing, kata; weapons kata and
self-defense. Besides the
three world power breaking
Championships, he also
holds a submission grap-
pling title.'
LaSala won a silver medal
in a jujitsu competition for
the Wide, World of Sports
and has been inducted into
three different martial arts
halls of fame.
"I'm just a little Italian,,
but it's not about the size of
the fight in the dog, but the
size of your heart," LaSala
said.,
:While LaSala 'found a lot


of success on the mat, he
still couldn't pin down hap-
piness.
"There was still some-
thing missing," LaSala said.
"One day a pastor came and
knocked on my door and
asked me why I would be'
going to heaven.
"I told him because I was
a good person. He told me
that's not going to get you
to heaven.
"From then on I left Jesus
up front and I got in the
back seat."
Looking for a way to com-
bine his faith and knowl-
edge of the martial arts,
LaSala began his Karate for
Christ Ministries and now
operates six schools in Port
St. Lucie and Fort Pierce.
His programs have also
become a family affair with
'his wife, two sons and
daughter" l accomplishedd


students and teachers.
"It's something our whole
family can relate to," Stacey
LaSala said. "We're always
* there to push each other."
The 18-year-old who
started when she was 4 is
a standout in her own right,
earning many champi-
onships, including a 17-
and-under crown in self-
defense.
"I was very proud," Stacey
said. "I wanted to win it for
my dad."
Stacey is just one of the
success stories that LaSala's
dojos have produced.
"We teach everything
from what you would see in
a Steven Segal movie to Mr.
Miyagi," LaSala said. "We
preach the gospel and do
martial arts.
"I've been extremely
blessed and it's my way of
giving backlto the Lord."

In today's world, the trend
is toward white; white teeth,
that is.
But with many people on
tight budgets, they may not
.pe able to afford spending
several hundred dollars at a
dentist's office for a whiten-
ing program. And other
choices, including limited
products at stores, may be
less effective.
James Strawn, a dentist
who has owned a practice in
-St. Lucie County for more
than 20 years, is offering an
alternative: a free whitening
program.
Some may think there's a
catch, but Dr. Strawn of Mid-

Pierce said that is not the
case.
"There is no catch for peo-
ple who want to join our
practice as regular patients,
or who are already in our

a gift shop and nature cen-
ter.
Seminars, lectures and
,other events will be held at
the nature center.
It's also expected that peo-
ple will book weddings and
receptions at the garden.
Once the garden is built,
Friends of the Garden, a
group with more than 100
members, will help main-
tain it.
Many of the plants will be
natives and ornamentals,
with, emphasis on plants
that can survive in dry con-
ditions.
Vice Mayor Jack Kelly said
he and County Commis-
sioner Doug Coward were
instrumental in getting the
funds for the original pur-
chase of the land, which
included 40 acres.
Besides 20 acres for the
garden, 40 acres will include
land that will be preserved
near the river and an area
open to some commercial
* development, including
restaurants.
More than 90 percent of
the land near the North Fork
of the St. Lucie River in Port
St. Lucie is not open for
development, he said.
That makes the commer-,
cial portion of the land par-
ticularly valuable, he said.

"But for those who can, the take-home
technique will provide as effective, if not
better, results, for virtually no cost," he
said.
Midway Dental Center has provided
dental solutions for Treasure Coast resi-
dents for mqre than 20 years.
Dr. Strawn caters to the treatment
expectations and circumstances of each
patient, combining the latest technology
with a down-to-earth approach.
"We take time to listen to each one's
wishes and concerns, then we work to find
treatment choices they are comfortable
with," he said.
"Each person is special," Dr. Strawn
added. "Some want a complete mouth
-makeover; others simply want to maintain
what they have in a healthy state. Most
people fall somewhere in between, but it's


a personal decision, and we support their
right to choose what's best for them.
"We don't believe in confronting some-
one with a treatment plan they don't
understand or can't pay for," he said.
Julie Serra, treatment coordinator for the
practice, said she understands the anxiety
people feel about going to a dentist.
"So, at each step of the patient's experi-
ence, our goal is for them to be comfort-
able,".she said.
* "Whether it's the doctor's gentle touch at
the chair, or working with a person's budg-
et or busy schedule, we want it to feel
right," she said.
"Many of our patients comment on how
warm and friendly our office is, and that
makes us feel good. It's a great place to
work," Ms. Serra said.

Rants
From page A6
Who do we turn to?
Rant & rave all you want;
sometimes it doesn't help.
When we arrived here in
mid-January, we found we
had no electricity due to
lighting damage to the elec-
tric pedestal that belongs to
the park. The park manager
called the electrician and I
paid more than $800 to have
it repaired. Our prospectus
says it is the park's responsi-
bility to pay and is owned by
the park. It took five days for
them to get here to repair it. I
paid up front, because we
were very cold without heat
or hot water.
I'm still waiting to get my
money back from the park
owners. What do I have to do


to get my money from the
park?
Drive your
kids to school
Here's my answer to "safety
.is the reason:" These cars sit
out there for a long time
before the busses get here
and after they leave. If you're
so concerned about side-
walks and safety, why not just
take the kids to school? You
won't have to worry about
rain or them getting to school
on time. You sit here talking
on the phone; why not drive
them to school instead? I
know I did when my kids
were young.

"The majority of the peo-
ple in our city are either
Christian or Jewish,". he
said. "That is the reason
why we have a celebration
this time of year. We are not
having a celebration
because we want. to give

city attorney Roger Orr to

Mr. Orr could not be

Vice Mayor Jack Kelly
said he's willing to discuss
the matter again.
"It is something we'll
have to .rehash," Council-
man Chris Cooper said.
The new civic center may
be the more appropriate

than City Hall, which is

political signs are removed
from the roads. I thought
there was a time frame in
which these had to be
taken down. It doesn't help
an already unattractive
area of town.

Stop throwing trash

Am I the only person
who wants a clean county?
There is trash everywhere.
Animals don't throw trash,
humans do. Put it in the
proper receptacles.

Overpriced cookies
Last month when the


Girls Scouts were selling
their cookies, they were
moaning that people
weren't buying them. Well,
they cost too much. If they
would reduce the price to $2
a box, they'd sell more and
still make a profit.

It's a safety issue

This is about the two
deputies who pulled over
one car. Deputies have to
pull over in twos. They
have to be safe, and have to
wqrry about their welfare.
It's not patting each other
on the back; it's a safety
issue.
Maybe you should give
them more recognition
instead of complaining
about them.

Tony winner at Lyric

Tommy Tune has won
nine Tony Awards in four
different categories, as.
well as the National Medal
for the Arts.
The singer/dancer/
director/choreographer
will perform at the Lyric
Theatre on March 21 and
he. spoke recently about
his 50 years in show busi-
ness.
"I'm a showman," he
said. "That's what I really
am. It's an umbrella effect
where you do it all.
Michael Bennett said to
me, 'It's all one talent.
Spend it the way you want
to.'"
The 6-foot 6-inch tall
Mr. Tune wanted to dance
in the ballet, but as he got
taller and skinnier, he
realized that tights were
not his look. Then his
mother, took him to see
"Easter Parade" with Fred
Astaire.
"He was the one who
inspired' me," Mr. Tune
said., "He looked really tall
and skinny on screen and
he was wearing pants.
'Well, OK,' I said to myself.
Maybe I could do that I've
been dancing in my pants
every chance I get."
e For the show at the
Lyric, Mr. Tune performs
with the 'Manhattan
Rhythm Kings, with whom
he has worked for 25
years.
"This Jan. 1, I officially
began my 50th year in
show business," he said.
It was a shock. I decided to
put on a show. I have so
many stories, and done so
many shows. It's hard to
know what to leave out.
"The difference between
this and other acts is that
it has a story, a trajectory. I
draw from the Broadway
canon, but not all of the
songs are from my shows.
Some fit a place in my life.
It's a Broadway biography
in song and dance."
Mr. Tune doesn't want
the audience to forget the
rest of his umbrella of tal-
ents, so in addition to
singing and 'story-teling,
he dances.
"I'm a showman, that's-
what I really am," he said. ;
"I am so blessed."

'American Idols' tour comes to Sunrise


By Shelley Koppel
Entertainment writer
FORT. PIERCE --Four
finalists from seasons 6
and 7 of '"American Idols"
will perform at the Sunrise
Theatre on March 15 in
"Idols in Concert: The
Spring Break Tour."
The performers include
Melinda Doolittle, who
sang Whitney Houston's "I
Believe in You and Me;"
Phil Stacey, a season 6
finalist,, who recently.
signed- with Reunion
Records, a Christian label
owned by Sony music;
Gina Glocksen, who sang
the Rolling Stones "Paint it
Black" and Chikezie Eze, a
finalist from season 7, who
performed Luther Van-
dross classics on the show.
Mr. Stacey and Ms.
Doolittle spoke by phone
recently about h6w the
show changed their lives.
Mr. Stacey was in the
Navy and unable to be best
man at a friend's wedding.
The friend told Mr. Stacey.
he'd be forgiven if he tried
out for 'American Idol."
Mr. Stacey took it as a joke,
but his wife didn't, andt
soon the singer and a
buddy were in Nashville
for try-outs.
"We just wanted to have,
fun," he said. "It was like a
mini-vacation. I didn't
think I would go anywhere
and I wasn't nervous. There
were many really, really tal-
ented people.
When he was chosen as a
semi-finalist, he was a bit
sad. w
"It was bittersweet," he


said. "I was really excited,
but I didn't know how I'd
balance it with the Navy
and I felt like I was taking
someone's place. These
people were my friends
and you saw their dreams
being crushed."
The nerves really set in
toward the end.
"I was shocked to make
it into the finals," he said.
"That's when I really start-
ed getting nervous. I could
hardly walk on stage. I
wondered if this were my
big shot."
The show definitely
changed Mr. Stacey's life.
"I have my second
.major-label .release com-
ing out," he said. "The first
charted on Billboard's Top
S20. I've' seen so many
things that I never thought
possible. I've sung at the
Grand Ole' Opry and
Carnegie Hall. It never
would have, happened
without 'American Idol.'"
Ms. Doolittle was also a
reluctant contestant, even-
tually traveling, to Mem-
phis with several friends to
audition. She was the only
one who made it through
to subsequent rounds.
"I\ told my mother I was-
n't going back because it
was too scary," she said.
"My mom made me go,
back because she said she
raised me to be a woman of
*my word."
Ms. Doolittle had no
expectations for the com-
petition.
"You look at the room of
16,000, listening to people
who got send home who
were wonderful," she said.

Singers Melinda Doolittle, below, and Phil Stagey,
above, finalists on 'American Idol,' are among the per-
formers when 'American Idol: The Spring Break Tour'
comes tothe Sunrise Theatre on March 15.
"I didn't know what they
were looking' for, but I
made up my mind that it
wasn't me."
Ms. Doolittle always
considered herself a back-
up singer and said "Ameri-
can Idol" completely
changed her life.
"I owe them a lot," she
said. "I never thought I'd
sing lead and people
would enjoy it and be sup-
portive of it., I'm really
excited. I'm starting to
rehearse my own band and
4ee IDOLS, B2 "

foods.
I've said before let's start
getting smart again by
saving money in the
supermarket. Ground beef
literally flies off the shelf in
tough fimes. You can make
the least expensivemheals
with ground beef, or can
*you? You look for cheap
and grab those "fantastic".
i buys, ground beef at under
$1 a pound. That's nuts, it's
almost half fat! Stop!


tough times by shopping smarter


ROMANCING
THE STOVE
with the
Grammy Guru
ARLENE BORG


After browning the meat
and pouring off the fat,
you're left with about a half
pound. The cuts of beef
that contain the least
amount of fat and choles-
terol are: flank steak, eye
round, top round, bottom
round, sirloin tip or steak
and lean chuck.
Some stores offer buy
one, get one free frequent-
ly. Any of these cuts can be
used for ground beef. I
prefer bottom round roast
for grinding. It's lean, good
tasting and-frequently on'
sale. Pick a lean one and .
bring it to the butchers at


the meat counter. Tell
them what you want. They
are the nicest and most
accommodating people in
the store, Tell them you
want the meat ground
, twice. You decide: Low fat?
Grind as is. Very low fat?
Trim most of the fat, first.
Virtually fat free? Trim all
the fat.
Do you want it portioned
out? They will package it
for you. Ask them to
package the trimmed fat
separately. Then you know
it has been trimmed and
just how much fat you've
kept out of your diet. Now
you're becoming a smart
shopper.
You will end up, after
cooking, with just about
what you started with;
good, lean, fresh ground
beef.,
In most casserole dishes,
you. can use less meat than
you usually Would since
there is no waste. Give back
the good fat by adding .1 or
2 tablespoons olive or.
canola oil to, each pound of
m eat. -


When you shop, you
must pay attention to
labels. Many additions,
such as Hamburger Helper,
contain fat; cholesterol and
a great deal of salt, not to
mention fancy words for
MSG. Not only does it add
things you don't need in
your diet, it also costs just
about as much as the meat.
That bottom round roast
also makes a delicious
roast beef or pot roast and
if you ask the butcher, he
will also make you cubed
steaks.
I cringe when I see
people buying pork neck
bones. Why are you paying
money for bones when you
can barely feed your family
meat?
Buy a pork shoulder, trim
the fat and cut it up. Want
pork chops? Buy a loin of
pork when it's on sale arnd
have the butcher cut it into
chops. Take advantage of
buy one get one free on a
boneless pork loin. You car
cut it into cutlets, chops,

It makes me laugh when
we constantly hear, "eat at
least five fresh fruits and
vegetables daily." Right now
the prices are untouchable
for many. Remember, a
vegetable is fresh when it's
sold or eaten no more than
two days after picking. After
that, you lose vitamins daily.
Frozen is cheaper and
packaged the same day it is
picked. Canned veggies are
still much, much cheaper
and packaged the same day
they're picked; still loaded
with vitamins.
Look for veggies with no
salt added'Tfty to buy store
brands. Who do you think
makes them? Ifiyou said the
big guys, you're right.
Drain and puree canned
veggies su6h as carrots,
beans, green beans, anything
you can think of, and mix it.
with the ground meat. They'll
never know the difference,
you're stretching the meat
and feeding them healthy
-food.
Five fruits a day? On what
planet? I remember years ago
raising four kids saying, "I just
want to be rich enough to
keep my family in bananas."
Including me and my
husband, that's 49 bananas a
week.
However; store-brand
canned fruits prepared in
pear juice or light syrup solve
the problem.,
Oatmealis great, but the
old fashioned kind, not the
instant, has the most
nutrition. Forget the instant
flavored ones; expensive
junk. You can add apple-
sauce, cinnamon, maple

the international squad.
Last year, the team finished
13th out of 33 teams.
"I was scared out of my
mind," Brittany Gomez
said. "We made it to the
second day (of competi-
tion) which is what we
wanted."
The experience was an eye-
opening one for Gomez and
her teammates.
"Now we know what we
expect and what we need to
work on," Gomez said. "We
didn't have as many tricks
(as the other teams). We
need more precision and
more synchronization.
"We want a top 10 finish
(this year). That's what we're
hoping for.
"We're working really hard
and we're coming together
as a team."
While Brittany Gomez
readily admits hip-hop
dancing is her passion, she
has benefitted from a
lifelong love of athletics.
"I played a lot of sports,"
Gomez said. "I liked softball
and soccer, but my favorite
was gymnastics.
"I started that when I was


4."
Gomez competed in
gymnastics for nine years
-while dabbling in softball
and soccer. She cheered for
the Eagles all four years
before graduating in 2007.
"It was really great," Gomez
said of cheerleading. "It
didn't really get a lot of
recognition when I was in
high school.
"It (cheerleading) has
helped me a lot with the
tricks we cpo in dance and
the athleticism."
While Gomez's years of
training have proved
invaluable on the hip-hop
team, she also devotes a lot


of time in helping to pass,
on that knowledge.
"I've been able to coach for
about five years," Gomez
said. "I love doing it. I love
working with kids."
Working alongside her
mom who has been
coaching for 20 years and
the other instructors,
Gomez helped several of
the other hip-hop teams
shine at nationals. The
youth team made up of 18
members ages 9 to 11
finished first, as did the
junior team made up of 16
members from ages 11 to
14.

GOLF
JAMES
STAMMER


L ooks like my friends at
the United States Golf
sociation are at it
again.
Just when one thinks the
USGA cannot possibly do
anything more to screw up
the game that I so love,
along comes the latest
memo.
On March 4, a memo was
sent to equipment manu-
facturers regarding submis-
sion of equipment for
testing by the USGA.
Before we get to what was
in that memo, I want to
point out that the USGA's
approval or rejection of a
piece of equipment, with
regard to conforming to the
rules of golf, means the
difference between selling
the club to the general
public or tossing years of
* research and development
* along with the clubs, :
produced into the trash can.
Without the USGA's
approval stamped on a
piece of equipment, the


follows: woods $150 each;
hybrids $150 each; iron sets
$500 per set;4individual iron
heads $150 each; putters
$50 each; other (tees, gloves,
shoes, etc.) $50 each.
"The USGA has charged
for golf ball evaluations
since 1979. During this
time, the USGA has not
generally charged for
evaluations of golf clubs.
However, in the past
decade, advances in golf
club technology have
resulted in the USGA
dedicating a substantially
increased amount of time,
expense and sophisticated
research to evaluate clubs
for conformance with the
rules of golf.
"In addition, during the
same time period, the
number of equipment
submissions to the USGA
has also increased signifi-

Almost perfect


fishing weather


F finally the seas are
starting to settle
down, the wind has
slowed and temperatures
have nfioderated.
The dolphin and sailfish
still have no pattern, but
anglers are catching them.
This week, most found fish
were from 80- to 150-feet
trolling. Some were caught
on live baits, but some just
took dinner to the fish.
There were lots of small
fish and a few gaffer-sized
dolphin but most were
small. The kings were in
the 30-foot zone both
north and south of our
inlet. They were perfect
size for the grill.
As the seas and temper-
atures get into their
normal pattern so will the
fish. Yes, they will get
bigger. You pick a reef and
the muttons have been
there in good number.
There were a few big
ones, but all were of
excellent size. Sardines
were the favored bait.
Sometime while you are
out there trolling around,
you might want to drift
over some of the reefs.
That's where the nice fish
that you've been missing
are hanging out.'
Surf anglers, it is all
about the blue fish. They
are up close and far out.
These fish are 3 to 5
pounds and it seems they
are everywhere and all
they do is eat. Cut baits,
spoons and top water are a
few of the favored baits.
Pompano have been
spotty this week. If you are
not catching at your
beach, move north or
south and you will find
them.
Bite times vary from
location to location and
clam strips were the
favored bait this week.
If whiting was your
target, sleep in and go

' Mig tr6ui and quality
reds are taking about any
thing you put in the water.
It seems the trout are
every- where. We have had

weighing his options for a
collegiate career.
S"It was a big decision, a
tough decision," McGee
said. "I wanted to make sure
the setting, the coaches and
the school was the most
comfortable fit for me.
"In the end, it was the
coaching staff. They are
committed- to making you
better."
Having his older brother,
Mike, on- the team didn't
hurt either.
"He was letting me find
my own way," McGee said.
"Once in a while he would
say, 'If you go to UF we're
going to trash you when we
play you,' but he was only
messing around."
Tallahassee's gain is deft-
nitely Gainesville's loss as
McGee has established him-
self as not only one of the
elite players on the Treasure
Coast, but across Florida as ,
.well.-,
"I definitely feel we have
one of the best catchers in
the state," Port St. Lucie
head coach Tony Mallzia
said. "He's a very hard work-
er.
"He's been a fixture for us
for four years."I
Despite the demands that
.come with the most gruel-
ing position on the dia-
mond, McGee has steadily
improved throughout his
tenure with the jaguars. As a
sophomore in 2007, MlcGee
helped fuel Port St. Lucie's
state title run, batting .344
with seven doubles, one
triple and 26 RBIs, McGee's
productivity at the plate and
his knowledge behind it,
were: key factors in the
Jaguars advancing to the
Class 5A state title game.
"That was amazing,
McGee said. "There is noth-
ing like p0stseason high- "
school baseball. .*:
"We were working as hard
as we possibly could. We-felt
we could go all the way."
Unfortunately, the team
came up a little bit short.
"That was rough, but
that's the game of baseball,"
McGee said. "If we play that
game again, two out of three
times we win it."

Golf
From page B8


"Therefore, the USGA has
determined that it is now
appropriate and equitable
to apply a charge for all golf
equipment conformance
decisions. The USGA will
continue to fund a substan-
Stial majority of research and
test center costs."
SSo, in order for apy
I, manufacturer'to have a club
evaluated, they must now
Spay a fee. While the fee is
not very large, who's to say
'that it won't double or triple
in the year to come?
My problem with this is
simple. The USGA has
literally created its'own jdb
' here. '
The USGA created a
.system and forced th e
entire golf industry to fall
into place, lock step,
without question. Now they
have the nerve to complain
about the fact that they are
"busy."
To top it off, the USGA
then puts a cost to do
business with them on a
"service" that they not only
own, but have created out
of thin air and forced
everyone to follow.
"It's paramount to
creating the drink, forcing
everyone to drink it and
then complaining that they
have to make so much of it
to fill the demand." said
S Mike Tai of SMIT Golf. "It's
absolutely beyond words!"
The USGA was founded,
or founded itself, to assure
that there remained some
control of the rules and
evolution of equipment, to
keep the game fair.
i But fair for whom? Only
for those who compete
, against other golfers in
What is termed "USGA
*-. sanctioned events."
Db'" For the USGA to go a step
or two or sLx further by
insisting that only equip-
ment which has passed its
certification process can be
used in "JSGA sanctioned
events" is, in my opinion,
an improper extension ofits
I authority.
91 .It seems proper for the
23 1-SG.A to special perform-
ance parameters, but leave
9V, i t up to each equipment
company and each golfer to
9 decide how they will assure
bi their products meet those
parameters.
I Submitting equipment to
the USGA for conformance
I testing should just be one
option, and not mandatory.
The USGA should simply
-' audit equipment for,
ci :compliance. Have testers
8 available at every tourna-


ment site, where competi-
tors can have their equip-
ment tested for a small fee
before the competition or
have it included in the entry
fee.
In short, put the expense
on the USGA and the
competing golfers, not the
equipment companies, to
test equipment for confor-


mance.
Why is this approach
better? The vast majority of
amateur golfers do not
compete in UGSA events so
they should not pay (indi-
rectly through equipment
price) for conformance
testing. And if you think

tinued to excel, breaking
the school record for bat-
ting average at .531. He alsp
added 12 doubles, one
triple, 22 runs and 16 RBI.
McGee's stats are even
more impressive consider-
ing the relative inexperi-
ence surrounding him.
Twelve seniors from the
second-best team in the
state graduated, leaving
McGee as one 'of the few


upperclassmen left to carry
the load.
"It was a little stressful,
but you get used to it,"
McGee said. "I should be
helping the team as much
as I can."
McGee hopes the same
thing happens this year.
The Jaguars have started off
slow, but recently had an
11-2 victory over Fort
Pierce Central for their first
win of the season. In the
game, McGee collected his
100th hit for Port St. Lucie,.
a milestone he is extremely


proud of.
"It's great," McGee said.
"Getting 100 hits in four
years when you only get
25 games per season,
that's like a hit a game.
"That's really big time."
In early March, Port
St. Lucie notched another
important win, this time
over city rival St. Lucie
West' Centennial to pull
closer to the .500 mark at
2-3. McGee acknowledges
the team has struggled of
late, but he has seen signs
of improvement along the
way.
"We're getting better
and better," McGee said.
"The catcher plays a
.huge role on the field.
He's like the quarterback
of the football team. He
calls all the plays, con-
trols the team and takes
care of the pitchers and
the players.
"He has to keep their
heads right as well as his
own."


Golf
From page BI11

that a company can
make every club to the
exact same specs as the
one tested and passed,
you are sadly mistaken.
My main point is that
the USGA is making an
improper extension of its
authority by insisting
that all equipment be
approved specifically by
it, and in the process
charging a fee for that.
This isn't an issue of
whether the equipment
companies can afford it, -
because it might increase
the cost per piece of
equipment by a few cents
each. It is more a matter
of the principle of an
organization improperly
going beyond its charter.
And it's time we all spoke
up about it!

depending on the day.
Snook continue to hang
at the bridges; baits that
are run deep are pre-
ferred and night fishing
has been most produc-
tive.
There are plenty of
sheephead and black
drum out there if you
can keep the sand perch
off your baits.
River fishing has been
busy, and yes, the
pompano continue to
bite. Catch the last two
hours of the incoming
water through the first
two of the outgoing.
Pompano like the
deeper water, deeper
cuts and plenty of them.
