Apartments for single moms finished


City utility lays
off employees

Because 'of declining
utility hookups for new
homes, the Port St. Lucie
Utilities Department has
laid off 21 employees, offi-
cials said.
Those included six
employees still in their
probation period.
In recent months, offi-
tials said, inspections and
installations .declined
because of the collapsing
housing market. -
Additionally, officials
said, the city's building
department has lost 23'
employees during the last
year ,because of the
decline .of new construc-
tion,
Of those 23 employees,
seven were laid off and the
rest either retired, were
transferred to other
departments or quit their
jobs voluntarily.

Residents turn
in outdated
medications

On March 14, St. Lucie.
County residents dropped
off more than'200,000 pills
at CVS, Wal-Mart and Wal-
greens locations. ;
It was, part of Operation
Safe Medicine Cabinet,
during which residents
were .urged to safely dis-
-<_- pose pf outdated or
unused prescription med-
icines.
Authorities say that it
prevents children from
having access to the pills.
Those dropping off the
pills received $5.gift cards.
Residents can continue
to dropoff pills at the St.'
Lucie 'County Sheriff's,
Office; at 4700 Midway
Road, but the gift certifi- .
caies are no longer avail-
able.

any other child.
She enjoys playing with
toys, swims, attends school
and does gymnastics.
But she copes with having
cystic fibrosis, a disease that
affects her ability to digest
food and creates -a lot of
mucus in her sinuses.
In the hope that
researchers will eventually
find a cure for their dau -
ter's illness, her parents,'
and Lisa Taylor, have or
ized the third-annual Great
Strides event.
The walk for cystic fibrosis
will be held Saturday, April 4,
near the pond at Tradition
Town Center. It begins at 8:30
p.m.
SMrs. Taylor said she's bop-
ing people will attend the
event and make donations,

the disease.
The problems started when
Cassidy was 2-1/2. She
coughed a lot and doctors
recommended her adenoids
be removed.
"She was supposed to get
better within a month and
she never did," Mrs. Taylor
said.
Because she has the dis-
ease, Cassidy receives breath-
ing treatments and enzymes
to help her digest food and


vitamins. She also takes
antibiotics.
For Cassidy, her mother
said, a cold can last much
longer for her than for a child
without the disease.
At times, she's been pre-
scribed the most potent
antibiotics, which can cost
thousands.
She also receives, on a regu-
lar basis, surgery to clean out
the mucus from her sinuses.
"She rebounds well," Mrs.
Taylor said. "She feels sb
much better afterwards."

STAR SAPPHIRE
In 1947, synthetic star ruby and
sapphire stones were intro-
duced to the market by the
Linde Division of the Union
Carbide Corporation in the/
United States. They. were an
instant success and ever since
that time there has been a ten-
dency to expect natural stones
to resemble them, It's true that
there are some very fine deep
blue and red specimens in
museums and private collec-
tions, but these are the excep-
tion rather than the rule. Most
natural star sapphires are nor-
mally more pale than natural
jaceted sapphires. and their
slars are not ac well defined as

a maroon rather than red color
and their stars tend to be indis-
tinct and imperfect. Star gems
nave often been worn as good-
iuck charms. In his book, the
Curious 'Lore of Precious
Stones, George Kunz states
that thethree cross-bars of the,
star were ihougrt to represent
laith, hope and ,destiny.
Supposedly, star sapphires
were so powerful at warding.off
Dad omens that they would
exercise their good influence
over their first owners even
after passing into other hands.
Even today, solar stones are
worn for good luck, and they
are still available. However,

Doctors and nurses deter-

qualified, he said.
The most common wishes,
he said, include trips to Dis-
ney World or other countries,
opportunities to meet celebri-
ties and shopping sprees.
One of the most unusual
wishes the foundation grant-
ed was from a boy who want-
ed to ring the opening bell at
the NewYork Stock Exchange ,
he said. I
Last week the foundation
held Make-A-Wish Day in St.
Lucie County, where Mr. Wed-
derbum met with community
leaders and held an apprecia-
tion dinner for volunteers.
At the dinner, Jonathon
received the, foundation's
ambassador award for his
willingness to talk about
Make-A-Wish.
He said he's had lupus, for
two years, and as a result had
to be home-schooled. He
often spends time in the hos-
pital. . ..
All that, as well as the costs
involved, made it difficult to
record Christian music, he
said.
So, he wished for home
recording studio equipment.
he said. ; ,
"I was very surprised that
my wish was going to be
granted." he said.
He specializes in Christian
hip hop music and performs

Make-A-Wish intends to
open an office in Nartin or St.

the Treasure Coast, he said.
But, he said, since the chap-

Key West to Sebastian to Fort
Myers, it's a difficult task to
serve the large area.
"We need help, in the corn -
munity to do it." he said.
One misperception about
Mlake-A-Wish is that it only
grants wishes for terminally ill

Global warming issues

I am surprised that intelligent people are making such
intelligent comments that are in conflict with a radical gov-
ernment hell-bent on giving the public problems.
Ron Pritchard was endrely correct in that there is no man-
made global warming. I am not a chemist, but I spent 15%
years on the briny seas ahd am well aware that the oceans are
made from contaminated water, namely sodium chloride,
the very thing they say is causing global warming.
Strangely, the politicians can spread fear of furo-carbons,
while they refuse to stop polluting the atmosphere with car-.
bon monoxide. It is strange that the government can ruin
anybody who tries to expose the real racket and problem.

Part 2: Risk factors for a stroke


T his week I'll discuss ,
the risk factors for
stroke. There are
quite a few, but some, such
as high blood pressure, are
easily controlled and may
prevent the onset of other
risk factors such as heart
disease.
. There are some risk
factors you can't do any-
thing about.
Age. The risk doubles
for each'decade after age
55, although younger ,
people do have strokes.
Family history and race.
Your risk is greater if a close
relative had a stroke.
African-Americans have a
higher risk as well.
Gender. Stroke is more
common among men, but
women are more likely to
die of a stroke if they have
one. Birth control pills and
pregnancy pose special
risks.
Prior stroke, transient
ischemic attack or small
stroke and heart attack
increase the risk of major ,
stroke.


ALIVE
& WELL
SHELLEY KOPPEL


There are also risk factors
that can be controlled.
High blood pressure.
This is the most control-
lable risk factor.'
Cigarette smoking.
Smoking is an important
risk factor as chemicals in
cigarettes damage the .
cardiovascular system. The
use of oral contraceptives
while smoking further
increases the risk.
Diabetes. While dia-
betes doesn't cause stroke,
many people with diabetes
have other risk factors as
well.
Carotid or other artery
disease. Blocked arteries or
narrowed blood vessels
raise the risk of stroke.
Atrial fibrillation. This
heart rhythm disorder and
other heart diseases are risk


factors.
Sickle-cell anemia. This
genetic disease, affecting
mostly African-American
and Hispanic children,
prevents blood from
flowing properly.
High cholesterol. It's
just one more reason to
bring the bad kind down
and the good kind up.
Poor diet. Diets high in
saturated fats, sodium and
excess calories lead to
other problems that can
lead to stroke. Fruits and
vegetables may reduce the
risk.
Physical inactivity and
obesity. Again, these can
lead to other conditions
that increase your risk.
There are other risk
factors that have been as
well documented, but that
can still cause problems,
even if researchers are not.
sure why.
Geography. Strokes are
more common in the
southeastern part of the
United States. These are
called the "stroke belt"


An alternative pricey office


A computer without
/A productivity software
.L js kind oflike a truck
without gas. You're not
going to get a lot of work
done withit. \
Sure, in atruck without
gas you could sit in the cab
and talk on the citizens
band radio, but you are not
going to be doing what the
truck was designed for:
hauling cargo. ,
On a computer without
productivity software, you
can still surf the Web, chat
and send e-mail, but try to
do anything really produc-
tive, such as work on a word
processor document,
spreadsheet or database,
and you will quickly find
yourself going nowhere fast.
Unfortunately, many
computers do not come
with any productivity
software at all (unless the
machine comes loaded
with a trial version that only
works for a month or two),
leaving people stuck trying
to figure out how to open
common work-related files.
Then, to make matters
worse, people find out that
it can cost hundreds of
dollars to purchase an
office suite to open com-
mon business files. Talk
about frustration.
So what exactly do I mean
by productivity software
and an office suite?.Well,
the most prolific package
out there has to be the


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY


'Microsoft Office suite (a
suite is a bundle of separate
programs that all work
together and it's thissuite
that most businesses rely
on daily to open, edit and
manipulate basic office
type files such as docu-
ments and spreadsheets.
The Microsoft Office suite
(typical package) will
include MicrosoftWord,
Excel, Access, Outlook and
Power Point.
Word is Microsoft's
flagship word processor;
Excel is its spreadsheet
program; Access is for
databases; Outlook is for
calendar, enterprise e-mail
and contact management;
and Power Point is a
program for creating
slideshow presentations.
I All are the typical work-
related applications rolled
into one software package.
And the price for this
package?
On Microsoft's Web site,
the upgrade (for a machine
that comes with a trial
version) runs $329 for the
Microsoft Office professiofi-
al version. The full version
costs a whopping $499.
' Understandably, this can


come as quite a shock to
someone who orders a
computer expecting it to be
able to do everything they
need it to do right out of the
box.
I am happy to inform you
that there is a free solution
available.
If you are one of the many
people who have just
received a new computer
only to find out that you
can't open Excel files or edit
Word documents and you
aren't too happy with the
thought of having to spend
more money to do so, then
go to www.openoffice.org.
There you will find an
office productivity suite
that is able to keep up with'
all the files that you would
typically need Microsoft
Office to open. And it's free.
Open Office is what is
called an "open source"
product that is constantly
in development. Open
source products are free
because users contribute to
the development and
support of the project. In
order for a program to be
considered open source,
there are few restrictions on
licensing anrd distribution.
What that means is that it
is perfectly acceptable
(encouraged, even) to

Socioeconomic factors.
There is some evidence
that poor people are more
likely to have strokes, but
this maybe because of,
other, untreated health
problems
Alcohql abuse. Stroke is
just one of the complica-

alcohol use.
Drug abuse. Abusing
cocaine, amphetamines
and heroin have been
associated with increased
risk oft stroke.

some of the things you can

The whole thing down-

What is that?

Every night, about 7:30,; there is a really big, bright star in
the northern sky. I'd like to know what planet it is. I've,
called some places, and they don't know. I'd really like to
find out.
Don't blame AIG

Are we still a democracy? Everyone is so upset with AIG.
They were in a contract. Why didn't the president know that
when he signed the stimulus package? If we take it back, we
are socialists. If we don't honor contracts, next time you
sign one, know it won't be any good.

Tax everyone

Am I still in America?
My ancestors came here and had to learn English. The,
have punished the people that smoke cigarettes. Get real.
The fast stood chains have done more damage with their
tfaty foods.
It tou want to make us pay for insurance and education
for illegal people and their children then all of us should be


taxed.
What about liquor? We giyp all this money to foreign
countries, when our own people need to be helped. Then
they burn our flags and sayAhey hate us.
I think we would be beer off being illegal with a string of
children, then being born here and fighting for our country.
Experiment on humans?

What's good for rats is good for humans? Does it make
sense to do experiments in laboratories on rats? They try to
find a cure for cancer on rats? How can they find a cure for
cancer on rats?
We need to research on humans. Stop producing things
that are harmful, such as synthetic ingredients. Toxins are
hurting all life and is causing cancer.

Fix house numbers

About two or three years ago, I wrote about the numbers
on streets and apartments. I haven't seen anything done
about them. The\ are still haid to find. Fire departments
and ambulances can't find the right apartment when
somebody needs them.
With hurricane season coming, shouldn't we do some-
thing about it?
And what about the small print in newspapers? They list a
restaurant, and list the address in tiny print at the bottom.
It's something to think about.

Ms. Bonet said. '
On Friday, April 3, a
panel discussion will be
held at IRSC from 2-4 p.m.
that will include Stetson
Kennedy, who knew Ms.
Hurston. '
Author Pamela Bordelon
will talk about Ms.
Hurston's participation in
the Works Progress Admin-

focus on Ms. Hurston's last
decade of life.
A trolley tour of sites
related to Ms. Hurston will
be held from 10 a.m. to 1:30
*p.m. Anyone who wants to
participate should call
(772) 462-1767.
That evening at 7- p.m.,

ship between Ms. Hurston
and Matjorie Kinnan Rawl-
ings, a Florida author.
Admission is free, but

are not well known, Ms.
Moylan said.
That included working
with Sara Creech, a Miami
resident, to create an
anthropologically correct
black doll.
Although black dolls had
been made before, Ms.
Moylan said, Ms. Creech
felt they were "insulting to
you black children."
Ms. Hurston also worked
as a housekeeper for former
U.S. Sen. George Smathers,
who was known for being
anti-communist and anti-
civil rights legislation.
That may seem surpris-
ing, but Ms. Hurston shared
'Sen. Smathers' opposition
to communism and was
also opposed to forced inte-
gration, Ms. Moylan said.
Eventually, she helped to
ghost write an autobiogra-
phy for Sen. Smathers'
father, who was a judge.
She also wrote a book
about King Herod and had
"a great obsession" to dis-
pel the story that King
Herod was a baby killer, Ms.
Moylan said. However; the
book was never published. ;
For a time, she lived in a
primarily white section of
Brevard County in Eau Gal-
lie, a former ,city that
merged with Melbourne.
"She was the kind of per-
,son who transcended race,"
Ms. Moylan said.
Ms. Hurston also did
some work as a journalist.
She covered the trial of a
black woman who was
accused of killing her white
lover, a newly-elected state
senator, Ms. Moylan said.
That took gumption on
Ms. Hurston's part because
the Ku Klux Klan was
involved, Ms. Moylan said.
During the 1950s, she
.moved to Fort Pierce to
write for the Fort Pierce
Chronicle. She! also taught
at Lincoln Park Academy.
Ms. Moylan said she was
also known to attend jam
sessions'with A.E. "Bean"
Backus, a landscape
painter who lived in Fort
Pierce.
Although during much of
the time, Ms. Hurston was
very poor, she continued to
pursue her art of literature
with passion, Ms. Moylan
said.
"She wrote about things
she cared about," Ms. Moy-
lan said. "She wrote about
things she thought were
worth writing about."

Explore some of the wonders of Russia


W Tayback in the day,
when I was in ,
sixth grade, my
classmates and I entered
our classroom to find a
slew of pictures and
posters of Russia (at that
time, it was the USSR) all
over the classroom walls
and our desks.
We had just entered into
our history lesson on
Russia. Thankfully, we had
a very enthusiastic teacher
who got us thinking and
appreciating the subject
more than just reading
from a text book. She was
quite a teacher and I am
thankful I was in her class.
One of the things that
fascinated me about Russia
,was the famousFabergd'
eggs made initially for the
Russian Czar Alexander III
to give to his wife, Maria
Feodorovna, for Easter.
Of course, very little of
this subject was in the text
book- we had an assign-
ment to find something
interesting about Russia-

and I do not remember
how it came about, but I
ended up reading about
these fascinating jeweled
eggs made by Peter Carl
Faberg6 and his assistants
from latter part of the
1800s to about 1917.
Not sure what grade I
received, either, but I'll
always remember the eggs.
By reading about the
eggs I learned more about
the Czars Alexander III and
Nicholas II of Russia who --
commissioned Faberg6 to
create these beautiful
gems.
I believe what fascinated
me most about Russia was
it. seemed always shrouded
in mystery, secrecy and
intrigue.
It was rich in history and
culture, with most of the
public buildings adorned
with gilded domes and
bronze statues.
Visiting Russia has
become increasingly
popular with travelers.
St. Petersburg is one of
the main starting points for
the many tours and river
cruises.
With incredible land-
marks such as Peter and
Paul Cathedral, the Grand
Choral Synagogue, the
Summer Palace of Peter the
Great and the State Her-
mitage Museum, with its
" vast collection of art,
antiquities, jewelry and
sculptures, St. Petersburg is
also home to the Mariinsky


j1


PATTY TOPPA ,



Theatre, which houses the
world renowned Mariinsky
Ballet.
Moscow is another must-
see city. A visit to Red
Square, one of the most
famous city squares in the
world, gives you much
insight into the Soviet rule.
Back in my sixth grade
classroom, I am sure there
were pictures of military
parades showing the
powerful Soviet Army
marching in Red Square. '
The square is flanked by
,the Kremlin, St. Basil's
Cathedral with its colorful
onion domes, and Lenin's
Mausoleum, each rich in
its own history.
The 64-acre Kremlin is
home to not only the
government seat, but
magnificent gold-domed
cathedrals, and the.Krem-
:.in Armory Museum, home
'* to the fabulous collection
of imperial treasures,
'including the famed
Faberge eggs.
There are many tour
companies offering various
Russia itineraries, but what
is becoming more popular
are the Russian river
cruises.

river cruises out there, here
is an ideal cruise that gives
many of the Russian
highlights:
Viking River Cruises
offers an incredible 13-day
waterways of the czars,
from St. Petersburg to
Moscow (or vice versa),
which includes 10 guided
tours.
From St. Petersburg, sail
on the Neva River, then
cross Lake Ladoga,
Europe's largest lake.
Cruise along the Svir River
into the tranquil waters of
Lake Onega, Europe's
second largest lake. En
route, you will enjoy a stop
in the island village of Kizhi
where you can view the
collection of ancient
Russian wooden houses,
windmills and churches
highlighted by the famous
three-tiered Preobranzhen-
skaya (transfiguration)
,Church, built in 1714
without a single nail. Pretty
amazing!
Continue cruising along
the Volga-Baltic Waterway,
which is a.system of rivers
and canals spanning 229
miles and seven locks, links
the Volga'River with the
Baltic Sea.
Arriving in Goritzy, a
typical Russian village;
here you will visit the
renowned Kirillov-Belozer-
sky Monastery, founded by
St. Cyril in 1397. Onto the
city of Yaroslavl, one of the
Golden Ring cities (ancient


towns that preserve the
memory of Russia's histori-
cal events) here you'can
see the Church of the
Epiphany and visit the
Church of St. Elija the
Prophet, featuring detailed
frescoes and icons and be
treated to a traditional
choir performance.
The next stop is the
provincial village of Uglich,
another Golden Ring city.
See the former Kremlin of
Uglich and visit the Church
of St.. Dmitry on the Blood,
built on the site where Ivan
the Terrible's son Dmitry
was mysteriously killed.
Cruise through the night
to Moscow where you will
enjoy a couple of days
visiting the sights of
Moscow using the ship as
your hotel for the days you
are in Moscow, quite an
experience.
With the current eco-
nomic issues, you will find
early booking discounts
and additional on board
amenities being offered for
many of tours and cruises.
Take advantage of these
incredible fares. Once
things balance out, the
fares will go up.

Italian for 'eat'
ml


this restaurant

IS secret waiting

to gout.


By Arlene Borg
News@hometownnewsol.coni
PORT ST. LUCIE -
Tucked away in the
Morningside shopping
center in Port St. Lucie is
a new: Italian restaurant,
Mangia, Mangia. In Ital-
ian that means eat, eat,
and I promise you, you
can't eat it all.
John Gaddoniex
opened the doors Nov. 1
last year and apparently,
it's a secret that's got to
get. out.
Mr. Gaddoniex is not'
new to the business. He
had two restaurants in
Key West, New York 'Pasta
and BoGos, for many
years. ,
My daughter. Kimberly.
and I, arrived for dinner
and were greeted by
manager, Paul Rick.
Donna Guiffre, our serv-
er, was there for our
every need.


While perusing the
extensive and reasonable
menu we sipped a glass
of their excellent wine;
several varieties of wine,
beer and soft drinks are
available.
Mangia, Mangi is a
squeaky-clean, small
restaurant with seating
for 40 inside with two
tables outside. There are
',six appetizers offered,
but they strive to make
the customer happy.
Even though mussels
were not offered as an
appetizer, at my request,
Chef Glen, Azevldo pre-
pared mussels marinara
for us to share, prepared
in a delicious spicy red
sauce.
Along with the.appetiz-
er came some of the best
garlic knpts I've ever had.
The salad that comes
with. dinners was as it
should be; no lettuce, but,
a fresh mix. of baby

Italian restaurant is their
tomato sauce and meat-
balls so of course, I had to
try that.
The sauce is mild and
tasty with not a hint of
sugar or too much oregano
and the large meatballs,
were good and tender.
Noticing I didn't see a
dessert list on the menu
Mr. Rick said, "Folks are
usually too full to order
dessert."
We then sat at an outside
table to enjoy the fresh air
and try to digest our meal,
when out he comes with
two freshly-made cannoli
in crusty shells overstuffed
with delicious cannoli fill-

Zora
From page B1
Zora was the anti-Sarah."
While many think of Zora
Neale Hurston primarily as a
novelist and author of "Their
Eyes Were Watching God,"
her niece offered a differ-
ence perspective.
"She was an anthropolo-
gist," Ms. Hurston said. "Her
literature showed the
essence of the anthological
training. She wrote in the
vernacular, because she saw
the' importance of language
in understating subordinat-
ed groups,"
Zora Neale Hurston's love
for hats was a part of her
personality and what the
Zora Fest organizers call her
attitudede"
"It was another aspect of
Zora -being different," Ms.
Hurston said. "It. was rele-
vant for women in that area
and it was fashionable. She
had to go one up. Being the
most flamboyant was her
trademark."
"Speak, So You can Speak
Again," by Lucy 'Anne
Hurston, will be available for
purchase, at Zora Fest or at
the ` author's Web site,
www.LucyAnneHurston. corn
"Zora Neale' Hurston,"
starring Elizabeth Van Dyke,
will be presented at the Sun-
rise Theatre, 117 S. Second

Meatballs, sausage, ribs,


brasciole and a special cake


Hello smart shoppers,
hope you had a good
week.
This week's column has
additions to my spaghetti
sauce that completes the
feast. A Casatta cake or a
cannoli cake, an Italian
specialty tops off the menu.
Ricotta, the soft creamy
cheese used in pasta dishes,
is also used in fillings and
frostings for cakes. Love
cannoli? The filling is made
with ricotta.
Enjoy. See you next week.

ITALIAN MEATBALLS
Serves 4 or more
Regular or low fat


When you use fresh ground
beef, meatballs can be low fat.
My meatball recipe was
handed down to my mother.
A combination of ground
beef, pork and veal can be
used, but we prefer them only
withbeef.
I can remember as a
teenager being told, "there
are seven ingredients in the
recipe plus the meat." You
must count on your fingers:
salt, pepper, egg, garlic,
cheese, parsley and bread..
If you use regular ground
chuck or beef, which contains
a fair amount of fat, the seven
ingredients rule still holds
' true.,When using fresh,,
virtually fat-free ground beef,
an eighth ingredient must be


ROMANCING

Grammy Guru ,
ARLENE BORG

added oo keep the meatballs
from going flat, and that is
bread crumbs.
NOTE: Using fresh ground
beef? Add 2 tablespoons extra
virgin olive oil per pound.
1 pound fresh ground fat-.
free beef
2 large eggs, an equivalent
amount of egg substitute,
or3 egg whites
4 slices white bread, or
equivalent of Italian bread
(preferred)
2 medium cloves garlic,
chopped
1 tablespoon plain bread
crumbs
1 teaspoon salt
1/2-teaspoon black
pepper
5 or 6 sprigs fresh Italian
parsley, chopped, or 1
tablespoon, dried
1 handful grated Romano
cheese

Soak.bread in water,
squeeze dry. If using Italian
bread, remove as much of the
crust as possible.
Place all ingredients in a
bowl andmix with your
hands. Shape into balls a little
larger than a golf ball. Place
on a cookie sheet that has


been treated with cooking
spray. Bake at 350-degrees for
about 30 minutes. Meatballs
should then be cooked in the
spaghetti sauce for 30
minutes. Over cooking will
make them fall apart.

ITALIAN SAUSAGE
FOR SPAGHETTI
SAUCE
To reduce the fat, cut
sausage into 3- or 4-inch
pieces. Prick all over with a
fork and bake on racks in a
cookie sheet at 350 degrees
for about 30 minutes. Add to
spaghetti sauce.and cook for
30 minutes.
HINT: If you use both sweet
and hot sausages, place a
toothpick in the hot sausage
to avoid unwelcome surpris-
es.

PORK SPARE RIBS
FOR SPAGHETTI
SAUCE
Serves 4-5
Cut ribs apart between
each bone and trim as much
fat as possible. Place on rack
in cookie sheet, bake at 350
degrees for 30 to 40 minutes
until browned. Add to sauce.
Ribs should be cooked in the
sauce for about 1 hour or
until fork-tender.

BRACIOLE
Serves 6
Ask the butcher for
brasciole. Years ago, flank
steak was used. Today we use
round steak. This is my
family's recipe. I recently had
brasciole with a sprinkling of
breadcrumbs added to the
meat and it was very good.
1 pound brasciole
3 or 4 large cloves garlic,
chopped
Several sprigs fresh Italian
parsley chopped
Grated'Romano cheese
Salt and pepper
White butcher's string
Spaghetti sauce

Score meat, cover with
waxed paper and pound to
flatten and tenderize. Cover
meat with next five ingredi-
ents. Roll and tie securely
with string. Brown in a little
oil or cooking spray. Add to
sauce. Cook for 1-1/4 to 1-
1/2 hours until meat is fork-
tender. Remove from sauce,
cut away string and slice in
1/2-inch pinwheels

ITALIAN CASSATA
CAKE

This recipe is from my
cousin, Ermalina. The cake is
purchased from the bakery of
a supermarket or a bakery
store. I presume from her
instructions it is a high cake.


1 sponge cake
1/3-cup raspberryjam
1 cup confectioner's sugar
1 cup candied fruit.
1 container (2 pounds)
ricotta
3/4-tablespoon orange
liqueur
3 squares semi-sweet
chocolate, chopped fine
5 tablespoons pistachio
nuts, chopped
Beat ricotta in a large bowl
until smooth. Add sugar,
chocolate, nuts and candied
fruit (save the best pieces of
fruit to decorate top of cake).
Cut cake into thin layers (3
or 4), moisten top of layers
with liqueur, spread a little
jam over top of layer and top
with some ricotta mixture.
Continue stacking layers,
leaving top of cake plain.
Chill until set, (at least 2
hours). Cover top with
leftover ricotta mixture,
whipped cream or dust with
confectioner's sugar. Deco-
rate with reserved fruit.

his year could very well
become known as the
year of the wedge.
This may be the last year
equipment manufacturers
can make wedges with all
sorts of deep grooves that
help golfers spin and control
the ball from all kinds of ugly
lies.
Next January, the USGA
will likely rule clubs with.
those deep, box grooves -
grooves that are too close
together and more to be
non-conforming.
We recreational golfers
can still play the wedges
with the soon-to-be-
outlawed grooves, but the
pros will not, nor will any
new such wedge being
submitted for USGA
approval pass.
With that in mind, several
companies introduced their
most technologically-
advanced Wedges this year.
They come in all kinds of
shapes, lofts, bounces and
colors.
Cleveland Golf's newest
wedge, played by Boo
Weekly, is camouflage
colored to fit his personality.
If you think forged feel in
irons is the. only way to go,
you simply must have forged
wedges.
Fourteen Golf (www.four-
teengolf.com) introduced a
new generation of wedges /
this year. The MT28 andV4'
wedges come in a range of,
nine different lofts/bounces
and multiple shaft optioAs.
The result is a line that ;
allows a wide variety of,
players to customize tfeir
setup.
Forged from nickel/
chrome molybdenugi, the
head is extremely doable,
yet soft, allowing foya
superb feel. The miror

precision shaping, replicat-
ingthat of many hand-
ground TOUR-level wedges.
Each wedge features
variable bounce technology,
which gives each club less .
bounce on the heel and toe,
providing more versatility
for opened- and closed-face
shots, and additional relief
from difficult lies.
The new black series ,
features a CNC milled face
for consistency in distance
control and additional spin
on shorter shots, especially
greenside.
Bridgestone uses a
precision milling process
'that cuts more consistently
shaped and spaced U-
grooves. These produce
higher and more consistent
backspin from all lies and
turf conditions. The wedges
are constructed of 8620 mild
carbon steel and heat-
treated for a softer, yet more
solid feel at impact.

Whwwind. It is written
that March comes
in like a lion and leaves like
a lamb, so where is the
lamb?
. Offshore, the first three
days of the week were less-
than-comfortable, but the
next four were out of
control.
These strong winds will
move the gulfstream in and
with it, the weed lines and
temperatures breaks which
all hold fish.
When ift settles down, I
would start looking in the'
30-foot zone for the cobia
and kingfish. A sardine will
catch both, along with',>
some excellent snapper


Look north of the inlet, in
front of the House of
Refuge. This is what,
happens when the wind
blows and you have
nothing to report; you start
to give away your favored
locations. Catch'zones will
move in, have your baits in
the water at 60 feet.

north of the Power Plant, or
just south of the House of
Refuge. Good catches were
reported, but there was no
pattern to the time of the
bite. Sand fleas and clam
. strips were the favored
baits in these locations.
River anglers can always
find a place to hide from
the wind, and the best part
was that the fish were there.
Excellent reports of trout,
redfish, pompano and
more were reported from
the Iridian River all the way
up into the North Fork.
Now, there's one group of
anglers who like these
conditions; bridge anglers
with big snook in their
sights.
With strong currents
moving everything around,
there is one fish that is
strong enough t9 take
advantage of these condi-
tions: big snook.
Big currents, big baits
and big fish, so please do
not bring a knife to the
gunfight.
These fish will all be
above the slot, 20-pound
tackle, 50-p6und leaders
and you are ready. Now you
pick the bridge and hold
on, you are about to be
tested.'

three games with an ailing
knee, the St. Lucie West Cen-
tennial pitcher hurled a per-
fect game while striking out
12 in a 24-0 win.
"I tried blocking it out of
my mind about the perfect
game," Conger said. "I
expected to go in there and
have a game like that."
The victory moved the
senior to 4-2 on the season
and lowered her ER\ to a
miniscule 1.04. Her double-
digit strikeout day brought
her total to 59 in 40 1/3
innings while she has
walked only four.
"She's always been a great
person to go to in a pinch,"
Centennial head coach
Cheryl East said. "She's
always pulled through.
"She's one of those types
of people that if I asked to
run through a wall, she
would."
Mostly this season, Con-
ger has been knocking dowrn
opponents. In February, she
struck out 10 while going 3-
for-5 in Centennial's 16-7
win 'over Wellington, as the
Eagles moved to 3-1 on the
season.
Conger was equally as
effective a few days later, fir-
ing a two-hit shutout while
striking out 10 in a 14-0 win
over Martin County. The 18-
year-old also came through


at tlh plate, going 2-for-3
with arun and two RBIs.
"Shi gives .100 percent all
the tine," East said.
Perhaps Conger's biggest
win to late came over Vero
Beach ii the Indians' open-
er. Conjer struck out nine,
and St. licie West won 7-5,
hlandingVerb Beach one of
its few loses this season.
"I was lappy to come out
with a ir" Conger said. 1
For mo6 players nearing
graduation, and wishing to
compete a the next level,
-this time if year can be

dering whici school will be
the right fit. longer was able
to get the decision out of the
way, signing vith St. Peters-
burg Collegt on Florida's
west coast., three weeks
before the season started.
"I talked to he coach and
I looked at' the school
online," Congir said. "Then
I went on m' visit and I
knew it was thEplace for me.
"The atmosphere sur-
rounding the school was
exciting."'
Playing collegately will be
the next step fo: the Port St.
Lucie resident vho became
enthralled with he sport at
a young age.
"I started when I was 6
years, old," Conler said. "I
always wanted t oitch."
Conger first sutd up, for
Centennial as atfreshman
and has been tnpressing
ever since.
"She is a leadernd one of
our captains," ast said.
"She has a great aitude."
While her pitcltng reper-
toire has gotten better, so
has Conger's ability to han-
die less-than-favcrable cir-
cumstances on the dia-
mond.
"Her maturity level has
'improved," East sad. "There
was a time whin other
teams would start hit and
we would get into situations
wbLre errors were made
around her and sae would
lose focus," East slid. "Now
she's a lot more focused in
her game and she doesn't let
any of those things bother
her."
For Tie most part, Con-
ger's pitching and Centenni-
al's explosive offense has led
to a lot of success, as the
Eagles' 9-3 record would
attest. Conger feels the team
can continue to excel and
make a legitimate run at a
state championship.
"(Coming into this sea-
son) I expected the team to
do real well and better than
last year," Congpr said. "The
only improvement we need
is catching our f1i balls.
"If we can dothat, there
will be no stopping us."
