should expect increases
in their cable television,
telephone, Internet and
cell phone bills. -
The Cir Council last
week increased the com-
municadon. tax from 1.5
percent to 5.22 percent.
Councilman .. Chris
Cooper cast the lone dis-
senting vote..
The tax increase is
expected to generate
about $4.6 million a year.
Last month, Mayor
Patricia Christensen said
that without the addi-
tional revenue, the city
would face laying off 250
employees at a time/
when the unemployment
rate is increasing.
In other matters, the
Council approved a site
plan for the Ravenswood

spend $6.5 million for a

Following that, the city,
opened the road from the
Interstate 95 interchange
to Manth Lane.
"Thank you for believing
in this project, believing in
the vision and believing in
our future," Mayor Patricia
Christensen said to several
dozen people who attend-
ed the ribbon cutting.
The completion of the


section from Manth Lane
to 1-95 a continuation
project from there to Tra-
dition is expected to open
in May leaves only one-
uncompleted portion.
That's the section from
Manth to U.S. 1. It has
been held up by delays in

mental permits to build a
bridge crossing the St.
Lucie River.

Mayor Christensen said
the federal government is
handing out billions in
stimulus money, while
delaying a project that
would put people to work.
"We sit here not needing
the money, just the per-

Families of children with cancer

support need for blood donations


By Jay Meisel

PORT ST. LUCIE -Were
it not for the tragedy of'
cancer, Kate Prokop and
Kyle Wahl would be shar-
ing the same kindergarten
classroom at Floresta Ele-
mentary School.
The families of both
children united last week
at Floresta Elementary to
support the need for
blood donations.
"It's very hard," Sasha
* Wahl, the mother of Kyle,


said about dealing with
the subject. Kyle died Feb.
24 after a long battle with.
the disease.
Kate, 5, who has only,
attended one day of
school because of her ill-
ness, appeared with her
Smother, Mary Prokop, at a
press conference.
Both children shared
the need for numerous
blood transfusions during
their battles with cancer.
Kate alone has needed
17 blood transfusions and
12 platelets transfusions,


cells found in blood ves-
sels that help clot blood.
She'll continue to need
more blood transfusions
at a time when the blood
supply is low,, said Pat
Michaels, executive direc-
tor of public relations for
Florida's Blood Centers.
To help with that need,
the school held a blood
drive on Saturday, March
28, the day after the press
conference.Mr, Michaels

isn't just about reaching
the finish line first.
On every car that Ryan
Rust races, there's a logo
inviting fans to partici-

"His racing is atool we

"We have had people
sign up from every

Those who sign up for
the program receive
names of troops to whom
they can send care
packages.
And last weekend, Ryan

state awards for two pro-

and save money.
One program is mental

The other helps offend-

Stuart, helped make it
possible.
Ryan, a duel enrollment
student at Treasure Coast
High School and Indian
River State College, races in
North Carolina and Florida.
The wall of the family
room of the Rust house is
lined with his trophies.
He hopes to participate
in professional races after
he reaches 18.
Ever since he watched a
race on television at age 3,
he said, he's been interest-
ed in racing.
By the time he was 8, he
wanted to become a racer,
Mrs. Rust said. She and her
husband, Marcel, allowed
their son to participate in
go-cart racing, and it went


from there.
"We know this is some-
thing he has a passion for,"
she said. "It hasn't changed
since he was 3 years old."
She said feels confident
in her son's racing ability,
but added, "The heart
racing will never go away."
Ryan said he's had
accidents, but none that
landed him in the hospital.
"I've had a few bruises,
but never any broken
bones," he said.
The fastest he's ever
raced was 150 mph on a
track in Bristol, Tenn.
"You can actually floor it
around the track," he said.
Having a "top notch car,"
is the most important
factor in racing, with a
good driver being second-
ary, Ryan said.
As Ryan progresses as a
racer, he said, he will
continue helping the
troops.


As of last week, Mrs. Rust
said they have 300 partici-
pating in the program:
The relationship
between the sender and
-receiver is more important
than what is sent, she said.
"That you care means .
more than anything in the
package," she said.
They work with the USO
to get names of troops to
support, she said.
Next month, Ryan said,
he and his father will go to
Fort Bragg, N.C., when a
National Guard unit is
deployed to Iraq.
"We want to sign up as
many (guard unit mem-
bers) as possible in the
program," he said.
The family got started
helping troops when an
uncle mentioned that two
of his friends were sta-
tioned overseas. '
They sent care packages
to those friends and the

On his Web site, Ryan

whether they agree with

Afghanistan.
"As you can see, this was
never intended to be a

Organization helps keeps



players in the game


By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com
While the Boys and Girls Clubs of
America are billed as "The Positive
Place for Kids," they are quickly becom-
ing one of the only spots for them, as
well.
With middle school sports programs
being slashed or eliminated and high
schools feeling the brunt of budget cuts
too, the organization is. helping to pick
up the slack along the Treasure Coast.
"All of these clubhouses are beacons
of positivism," Tommie Gibson said. "It
means a lot for these kids to participate'
in sports. -
"There are other places out there, but
they do n6t do it as well as we do since
we are a national organization."
Gibson, the director of operations for
the Boys and Girls Club of St. Lucie
County helps oversee one of the most
successful sports programs on the Trea-
sure Coast.
"We have an active tri-county basket-
ball league with teams from Martin, St.
Lucie and Indian River counties that
plays in the Mac Mascioli Unit gym in
Fort'Pierce," Gibson said. "We have full-


league play on Friday and Saturday for
kids 8-years-old to 18.
"It's just one way to fill in the gap for
athletic activities."
Jose Torres, who helps coach the
Martin County squads, has seen the
benefits of the league, not just for his
teams but also for the competition.
"It's grown so much, it's unbeliev-
able," Torres said. "We have seven (Mar-
tin County) teams including the girls.
They're all doing well.
"It's great for the St. Lucie County
teams also because they don't have a
middle school program so they can still
feel part of a team."
, St. Lucie County Middle School stu-
dents have felt the brunt, of the cost-
cutting measures. All sports were elimi-
nated this year and now intramural
activities are in doubt. One of the fortu-
nate few is Lincoln Park's Brandy Mont-
gomery, an eighth-grader who earned
her way onto the varsity basketball
squad.
"I don't know what I would do if I was-
n't able :to .play basketball," Mont-
gomery said. "I'have such a passion for
the game. If they took it away it would
hum so bad"


Other bounties are suffering as well.
At Gifford Middle School inVero Beach,
the administration has had to take a
proactive stance in the face of the state's
woes.
"From last year to this year, we made
a 35 percent cut in basketball games in
anticipation of budget restrictions,"
Principal Dave Kramek said. "We made
similar cuts in soccer and volleyball.'
Stuart Middle School made some vol-
untary reductions as well.
"We cut back on teams we played at a
distance the Seba-uan and Vero
Beach area," principal Sigrid George
said. "We doubled up on schools in the
county, but still lost four to six games.".
Sebastian River Middle School offers
severe sports over the course of the year,
but has seen the number of games'
slashed over the last fewyears.
"We had 15 or 16 baseball games last
year," athletic director Bill McCarthy
said. "This year we only have 10 games.
"Girls basketball we had 21 games
two years ago. This year we had 11.
"We have to keep our kids active and
involved."

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
dentists, hygienist and any other dental assistants should wear facemasks that coyer 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 a
on a new pair of gloves. The federal Centers for Disease Control consider hand hygiene the most
important factor in prc-en&ng the spread of organisms. Ask your dentist about precautions in place at LO
her office. "I '

PRECIOUS METAL
Many people believe that fine-
ness of .precious metal must be
stamped on a jewelry item
made of gold or silver. This is
certainly the case in many juris-
dictions outside the US. But in
the' US, you.are required to
identify .the fineness of thie
quality of the precious metal,
but you do not need to stamp it
on the item itself. You can iden-,
tify it on the invoice, on a hang-
tag, 'or on other descriptive
material accompanying the
piece. If the manufacturer
chooses to quality stamp the
jewelry item made of gold or sil-
ver;, the law' requires that they
place a federally registered
trademark in close proximity to
the quality stamp: This has the
effect of providing assurance to
the purchaser that the item's
precious metal quality is guar-
anleed by the entity that
stamps the item. The National
Gold and Silver Stamping Ace
is a federal law that was enact-
ed in 1905. Violations of this
law carry sanctions that include
forfeiture, civil and criminal
monetary penalties and even
jail. The Federal Trade
.Commission Guides for the
Jewelry, Precious Metal and
Pewter Industries was pub-
lished in its current form in
1996. These guidelines estab-
lish the standards the FTC will
apply to claims and representa-
tions at all levels of the trade
about "industry products"
regarding any material aspect
of the product. This includes
labeling, promotional material,
and all other forms of market-
ing, including advertising. FTC
guidance standards are fully
subject to the National Gold
and Silver Stamping Act.

$1,000 donation to the
foundation in Kyle's memo-
ry.
'Ms. Wahl said the founda-
tion helps families of chil-
dren 'with cancer. It helped
with their transportation to
New York to get Kyle treat-
ment, she said.
Meanwhile, the efforts to
get enough blood for other
children with such needs
continue.
Mr. Michaels said blood
donations tend to be off


their criminal behavior,"
The said.
The aim isto "keep them
in jobs and housing so
they don't get arrested
time and time again," she
' said.
Ms. Litty said she
believes the program is
unique in Florida. One
other county has a re-en;ry
program, but it begins only
after the prisoner is
released, she said.
The mental health court
also reduces recidivism by
treating offenders as peo-
ple with illnesses, rather
than as criminals who
should be locked up in a
cell, she said.
"We help them so they.
are not again repeating
criminal behavior,". she
said. "It's curing the dis-
ease rather than punishing
them."
"If they get the counsel-
ing they need or the medi-
cines they need, they won't


during the period sur-.
rounding spring break, as"
some donors travel then.
"It's a day-to-day thing,"'
said Tracey Skinner, who
also is with Florida's Blood.
Centers. "We're trying to'
keep the blood supply up."

she said.
For that award, Ms. Litiy.'
Lisa Fonteyn, client serv-w
ice program coordinator!
and Katie Alonzo, drug&
court coordinator,
received recognition.
As to how much money
the programs have saved
the system, she said, it's
hard to come up with anr
exact dollar amount.
"If there's one less victim'
that could be hospitalized!
or killed, what's that
worth?" she asked.

said, partners such as,

School closings

Before the School Board of St. Lucie County decides to close
down schools and eliminate positions throughout the system,
putting hundreds from within the community out of work, they
really ought to amend their own crippling spending habits.
Some suggestions:
First, revise purchasing practices bynot using only approved
vendors that historically overcharge the government because
they can. Stop purchasing items up to 10 or more times higher
than the usual or customary cost.
Second, stop sending buses on field trips that are less than
halffull.
Third. revise the school zones so that five buses don't have to
go to the same stop just to pick up kids going to five different
schools throughout the county. What a waste of fuel, time and
salaries.
,Fourth, the school district iA the largest employer group in
the county. As such, why do they have the highest insurance
premiums? This should be used as leverage when negotiating
withinsurance carriers, not as a hindrance..
Fifth, make better use ofthe school year. Compact the school
year, limiting the number of half-days and teacher work days,
where utilities and salaries are utilized. If kids need to be in
school 180 days, get them through with limited interruption
fromAugustto May. "
In all, the school board is a tax-supported system and the
abuse and mismanagement needs to be stopped, now more
than ever. This community cannot afford the impact of more
, families in crisis.

More ways to fix the school budget

I do agree with most of the ideasof an easy fix for the educa-
tional budget crisis. School board members do not have to
have an annual salary, they can be paid for (only) time worked,'
a set hourly rate.
They should make room for assistant principals to move up
and be put on a waiting list for any possible future administra-
tive or teaching positions that may open.
The general public was asked to write in comments on the
district Web site. Well, they certainly had many comments with
a variety of very good suggestions.
Some suggestions were so good they actually could start
doing them right now, instead of waiting for the legislative ses-
sions to end in May.
For example, they closed schools during the Christmas break
to cut the costs of running buildings, then plan to do this for
spring break week (I believe this has already been planned).
They are already saving money by doing these things. Why
stop there? Why not go ahead and plan to close schools that are
not offering any summer school for most of the summer sea-
son?
Ifthere is no summer school, there is obviously less work to
do.Why do we have as much staff as we do running our schools
during the summer months? Many other states do not do this.
Steps should be taken now. Plans should be put in place now
for future cost saving, regardless of the outcome of the May leg-
islative sessions.

Schools vs. pretty roads

They just closed down three schools because they couldn't
find any moneyfor them. But I read that we are spending hun-
dreds if not thousands on beautification of roads. Is that really
necessary?
With the drought coming, we'll have more trucks out there
watering the new plants and trees, wasting more money We
don't need that. There are more important things for us to
spend our tax money on.
How about forgetting raises for county and city employees?
What about no new trucks and cars for those employees? Buy
used ones like we have to.-
Those are some of the things that'we can save money on.

Overpriced bananas?

This about grocery stores in the area. There must be a lot of
money to be made on bananas. They are sold for 69 cents a
pound in Indian River County. But in St. Lucie County, at a store
that's not panrt of a major chain, they are 33 cents a pound. HoW
come?

Rebuilding what nature took


Mitch Kloortain/Clcer photographer
Stacy Howell, 17, of Fort Pierce, and Tiffany Brannigan, 15, of Port St. Lucie, plant mangroves along the perimeter of
Blind Creek on Hutchinson Island Saturday, March 28. The project was part of the posthumous completion of Frank
Smith's Eagle Scout project that was finished in his name to earn him the Spirit of the Eagle award. Frank Smith died
suddenly earlier this year and was looking to restore this area damaged by hurricanes to earn the rank of Eagle Scout.




Leamr all about Adobe Reader


T his week I thought I
would touch on an
issue that seems to
have been pppping up
more of late. '
I keep getting requests
for help from people who
either have a file that was
e-mailed to them that is
supposed to be "universal
portable document
format," but they can't
open it, or they click on a
rlink,inwaWeb site and then
get message they need
something called "Adobe
Reader" in order to read
that file. Has this ever
happened to you?
The confusion seems to
come from the idea that
when you get a computer
it's filly loaded and ought
to be able to open anm- -
thing, especially so-called
"universal" files such as
Adobe files.
To further confuse
things, some computers ,
do come with Adobe
Reader already installed in
its "core build" (that is, the
standard package of
programs installed for that
model), but many do not.
Since the ability to read
Adobe files is not some-
thing that Windows can do
on its own, you can run
into some confusion the
first time you encounter
one of these Adobe files.
You can recognize an


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY


Adobe file by its extension:
.pdf. The extension (the
last three characters of a
file name after the dot)
tells Windows what kind of
file it is and what program
to use to open it.
In this case ".pdf" stands
for "portable document t,
format" and it is supposed
to be universal. That is, it's
supposed to look the same
no matter what kind of
computer you try to view it
with.
The problem comes
from the fact that,
although this is a universal
format, you must have a
special reader installed in
order to see the file exactly-
the way it was created,
hence the need for the
Adobe reader "plug-in" or
"helper app." (a plug-in or
helper app., is a small
program that takes over
when Windows can't do
the job.
I can hear all these
questions going through
your heads and I have an
answer for all of them.
- If the icon isn't present
in your programs list, or it
is there but you still have


trouble opening .pdf files,
then you should consider
downloading the latest
copy.
If you don't have it, it's a
sure bet you'll need it
someday and if you have
it, but.it won't open files,
then it may be an older
version trying to open a
file that was created with a
newer version. That can
happen from tiine to time,
too. ,
Do you really need it?
Well, it's good to have on
your machine. Eventually,
you will encounter a .pdf
file and having the latest
version installed will
ensure-you are able to
open it when you
encounter one.
The reader is available for,
free by downloading it
from Adobe's Web site; just
visit www.Adobe.com and
click the "get Adobe
Reader" button.
Follow the directions
and soon your system will
be opening .pdf files with
no problems at all.,
As for the spyware
question, the answer is
that there's no spyware.
Adobe Reader is complete-
ly safe.
But it is good to be alert
when downloading.
"freebies" from the
Internet. Sometimes free
comes with a cost, but in


this case, it's OK. Installing
Adobe Reader won't load
your machine with
bunch of spyware garbage,
and it won't cause you to
get a ton of spam so you
can relax. This is a safe
one.
So, in a,nutshell, some-
times Windows needs help'
opening even "universal"
files and the way that is
accomplishfed'is by-"
downloading and -
installing the appropriate
"helper app."
When you encounter a
message that Windows
can't open a file, don't
panic. Make a note of the
file's extension to tell you
how to open it. If it's .pdf,
then you know you need
to have Adobe Reader
installed.
If it's some other exten-
sion, remember you can
always Google it to find
out what kind of program
you need to open it. The
nice thing is that once you
download and install the
helper app.. you never
have to do it again. From
that point on, Windows
will know how to open
files with that extension.

Part 3: Tips for preventing a stroke


S:n the last few weeks,
I've given you all the
.bad news about the
dangers of heart disease
and stroke. Now, I have
some good news. There
are things you can do to
lower your risk.
Eat a healthy diet. You
know you've been mean-
ing to get with the pro-
gram. The American Heart
Association offers some
tips:
Use at least as many
calories as you take in.
Know what you eat and
don't eat more than you
can burn up in a day.
Eat a variety of foods
from all food groups. To
get the nutrients you.
need, choose vegetables,
fruits, whole-grain.
products and fat-free or
low-fat dairy products
most often. Vegetables are
high in vitamins, minerals
and fiber and lower in'
calories. Whole grains can
help lower your choles-
terol and help you feel

& WELL

full. -
East fish at least twice a
week. Recent research
suggests that the benefits
from omega-3 fatty acids
fo.undin salmon and ,
other fish may lower the
risk of coronary artery
disease.
If you are pregnant, talk
to your doctor about
limits on fish intake
because of mercury. For
others, that is not a
problem.
Don't consume empty
calories. Limit foods that
are high in calories but
not nutrients, such as soft
drinks. Limit saturated
fats, trans fats and sodi-
um, as well. Read the
labels.
Choose lean meats and
poultry without the skin.


Cook with herbs and
without saturated fats.
Choose fat-free, 1
percent fat and low-fat
dairy products.
Cut back on foods with
partially hydrogenated
vegetable oils to reduce
trans fats. Choose a
spread such as Smart
Balance.
Try to eat less than 300
milligrams of cholesterol
a day. Try0to eat less than
2,300 milligrams' of
sodium per day. Check
canned food labels; they
have a lot of sodium.
Only drink in modera-
tion. That means one
drink a day for a woman
and two for a man, but
you don't have to have it.
Watch portion size.
Exercise every day. Walk
or do physical activity for
at least 30 minutes most
days. Check with your
doctor before beginning.
Know your blood
pressure. If you need
medication, take it even if


you have no symptoms.
Stop smoking.
A lot of this sounds
overwhelming. I'm going
to suggest that you start
with one thing at a time.
For example, buy a salt
substitute or use herbs
instead of added salt this
week.
Next week, buy low or
non-fat milk and other
dairy products. Then add
a fruit each day.
Take a walk in the
morning or after dinner.
Before you know it, your
diet and your health will
both improve!

said.
Having spent so much
time there made the news
that Superintendent
Michael Lannon has rec-
ommended closing the
school particularly devas-
tating.


Free
Estimates


"We're just one big fami-
ly," she said. "To separate
the faculty here is going to
be a big deal."
The $30 million in rec-
ommended cuts include
closing not only Port St.
Lucie Elementary, but also
Southbend K-8 School and
the Anglewood Center in
Fort Pierce, which helps
students who have chil-
dren.

Other proposed cuts
include an across-the-
board 1 percent pay cut, no
funding for school
resources officers, cuts in
athletics and layoffs of 331
employees, including 157
teachers. Those with year-
to-year contracts were
termed at risk for losing
their jobs.
The St. Lucie County
School Board is expected to
vote on those recommen-
dations April 7.
Superintendent Lannon
placed a lot of the blame
for the situation oh the
state.
The Florida Constitution
establishes that education
is a paramount duty of the
state.
"I believe they are failing
to live up to that," Mr. Lan-
non said.
"If we don't wake up and
invest in education, it is my
greatest fear that my grand-
child (will have trouble
competing for a job)," Mr.
Lannon said.
He said Florida ranks
toward the bottom regard-


ing tax funding of educa-
tion.
"Our friends in business
understand you get what
you pay for," he said.
Mr. Lannon said an
underfunded school system
will hurt growth.
"Mommas do not bring
their babies to inferior
school systems," he said.
School board member
Kathryn Hensley said she
also believes the state
needs to fund education as
the top priority it should be.
Since the school board
meeting, Judi Miller, chair-
woman of the board, said
she's heard many people
express shock over the
magnitude of the cuts.
Another frequent reac-
tion, she said, is that cutting
administration would solve
the problem.
But St. Lucie County
ranks 65 of 67 among Flori-
da counties in spending on
administration, she said.
As to what else to cut, she
said, people express differ-.
ent opinions.
, "What is important varies
from one person to anoth-
er," Mrs. Miller said.
She agrees with Mr. Lan-
non in that the state needs
to more adequately fund
education.
Until that happens, the
'pain of the cuts is especially
sharp at Port St. Lucie Ele-
mentary School, where
many in the faculty have
worked together for
decades, Mrs. Laster said.
"We're all devastated,"


"If we don't wake up and invest in education, it
is my greatest fear that my grandchild (will
have trouble competing for a job).


Michael Lannon
Superintendent
she said.
Not only did she begin
and continue her career
there, but also her two chil-
dren went to the school, she
said.
The atmosphere is differ-
ent from large schools,
where people working in
the same building don't
know each other, she said.
Often, Mrs. Laster, who
also is Parent Teacher Orga-
nization president this year,
said faculty members
spend time together out-
side of work, such as going
camping together.
Deb Mock, a reading
coach who has been at the
school for 31 years, said she
was also disappointed at
the news.
"The school is like a sec-,
ond family to me," she said.
She said she's worked
with many of the same peo-
ple during those 31 years.
"We've been doing a lot of
reminiscing," she said.
That reminiscing has
included memories of get-
ting through hurricanes
and flooding, raising more
than $5,000 for. Relay for
Life, helping staff members
and children in need, the
annual breakfast with Santa
for the children and cele-


rating the school's 25th
anniversary in 2000.
"It's been a wonderful
place to work," she said.
Currently, the school has
675 students in grades
kindergarten through five
and 75 employees, Princi-
pal Glenn H. Rustay said.
School officials said part
of the reason for recom-
mending the school for clo-
sure is the age of the build-
ing and the increasing need
for repairs.
The situation is just the
opposite for Southbend,
which is being housed in
temporary facilities.
Plans were to build a per-
manent school off Becker
Road. But the district lacks
the money to build the
school, officials say.
"We're just sad to see the
situation turn out the way it
did," said Bernadette Floyd,
principal.
She said the faculty and
staff work together closely,
and that makes the situa-
tion more devastating.
The recommendation for
closing the school was a
shock, but with the situa-
tion as it is, "you kinda pre-
pared yourself that this
maybe could happen," Ms.
Floyd said.

Keeping children on the go

of the school's reduced offer-

With patience, you ,c-an win the grciysore price' cyl


H ave you ever gone to
the grocery store and
wondered why prices
on the same items change so
much each week?
A box of pasta may cost 79
cents one week and $2.39 the
next. A, bote of juice that
costs $2 today may cost $4.29
just a few days from now.
Most people ,accept these
price fluctuations as normal.
Many don't even notice then
at all.,
Why do prices at the gro-
cery store change so much in


a short periodof time?
Grocery stores sales run in
12-week cycles. Most every-
thing in the store is at its low-,
est price, point just once
every 12 weeks.
Throughout the rest of the.
cycle the price may fluctuate
a bit, but it won't go to its
rock-bottom low again until
the 12-week cycle is com-
plete.
, You might be thinking

in one trip when the price
was low.
Granted, this approach
goes against everything we
typically do as shoppers.
When it's time to go to the
store, most of us look around
the house, see what we're out
of and then go to the store to
buy it. But the problem with
this is that it's impossible for
every item on our list to be at,
its lowest price point, since
different categories of gro-
cery items operate on differ-
ent pricing cycles.
Thafs part of the grocery
store's marketing plan. Stores
know that if shoppers come
in for a sale item, it's likely
they will buy many other full-
priceditems.
As shoppers, changing the
waywe shop is the key to sav-
ing money.
Obviously, it's not easy to
stock up on perishable pro-
duce and dairy items. But
many other products are easy
to store for long periods. If
you start saving money on


slow-to-outdate items, cere-
al, canned and frozen foods
and personal-care items such
as toothpaste and shampoo,
your entire grocery bill will
start to come down.
Here's the challenge: We
are just not in the habit of
buying 12 boxes of pasta at a
time. But why not? Pasta has
a long shelf life. It doesn't
spoil. It's easy to store. Yet,
when we see it on sale, we
usually don't think, "That's a
great price. I'm going to buy a
dozen."
When I became a super
couponer I started seeing
shopping in a new light. I
started buying larger quanti-
ties of my household staples
when they were at their low-
est prices.
Die-hard couponers refer
to buying in quantity as
"stockpiling."
When you buy more than
you need because the price is
low, you can "shop from
home" the next time you
need that item, because you


M I A rutt a. %-


cle game
have stockpiled it in youth
kitchen cupboard. r-og
And you've avoided paying)
the higher price for the idemu
tical item in the grocery store
this week, because you punr
chased enough to last youth)
household almost thrpel
months when the price wasi
lowest. A
And we haven't even .dis,
cussed coupons yet! 0j
Imagine that during thl
pasta sale, I had coupons f6r'
75 cents off each box 'of.
pasta. I would now be buying

the importance of having travel insurance
FM M_ WIN." -MM


o you need travel
insurance? In a word,
yes.
npilrchase travel insurance
and if nothing happens
Here you needed to use it,
thgi you lost money. So kick
yourself, but be grateful you
dlMot need it.
However, if you needed it
and did not have it, the
initial cost could really have
been the lesser of all evils,
depending on what you
njded it for.
Setting sick or injured out
ofthe country can not only
be a'bummer, but it can be
very expensive'(now you can
really kick yourself).
DIn't think for one minute
thatthe health insurance
policy you pay (big) money
tothave here in the states is,
going to cover all of your
cpsts when you are out ofthe
c-4Dttatry.
qsTuite the opposite. They
may cover some your basics
(but not without plenty of
legNwork on your part for
reimbursement).,
A trip to a local hospital on
ardnote island can be very
costly. Then you still have to
gethome, if the ship left
without you.
, So many times we see or
hear of someone getting
airlifted off of a cruise ship
because of a fall or sickness.
Y'i,start to think to yourself,
'"ihppe they have insur-
ance."
,(What does travel insur-
anpe cost? What does it
cpyer? Which policy would
Sbglest for me?
-.J these are all questions
ynqneed to ask yourself or
yujr travel consultant. What
ig iportant is that you have
-cogerage in the first place.,
Most travel insurance
companies offer a variety of
o pions for you to choose

board medical bills and
transportation home, if
necessary, for you and your
travel partner.
Do you need it? Consider
these circumstances.
You are looking forward to
your long-awaited cruise
vacation, but the day before
you are to fly out to meet
your ship, you become ill
and need to cancel;
What to do? You contact
either your travel consultant
or the cruise line directly and
cancel your cruise and the
airline to cancel your flight.
Had you purchased travel
insurance, you will be
reimbursed the entire
amount you are out (less the
cost of the policy of course).
Now, had you not had
insurance? You will lose it all.
Not only your own monies,
but the person you are to
travel with will lose his as
well if he chooses not to go
without you.
Your child gets hurt a
couple of days prior to your
trip and you cannot possibly
go. You are covered, with
most insurance policies, for
this as well. You have an
unexpected death in the,
family: covered. You broke
your leg: covered. Your house
had a fire: covered. A natural
disaster occurred and you
could not leave: covered.
Many scenarios are covered
with most travel insurance
policies.
If you are cruising, you can
purchase travel insurance
through the cruise line that
will cover cancellations,
baggage issues, on-board
sicknesses, death in the
family, etc.
Some cruise lines policies
have a coverage that you can
choose, not to cruise, but you

toward a future cruise with
the same line.
,Hey, it is better than
nothing if you had to cancel
for a reason not covered by
the policy.
Cruise lines insurance vs.
third-party insurance.
: The differences can vary,
but basically, the cruise lines'
insurance is generally more
economical and will cover
cancellation (interruption),
medical, death, baggage, etc.
What it does not cover is any
airfare not purchased
through the cruise line and
default if the cruise line goes
bankrupt, to name a couple.

cruise in a luxury suite for an
important anniversary. The
total fare was more than
$10,000 for both of them.
Now, they had never pur-
chased insurance prior to
this and felt they did not
need it.
I convinced them that they
should have travel insurance
for this cruise.
Two weeks prior to their
travel, the gentleman got
sick and they had to cancel.
They were so happy that I
insisted they get the insur-
ance. Since then, they always

have since had to use it for
lost baggage, trip delay
because of flights and on-

various cruises. Go figure!
They won't travel without it
any longer.
If you are planning to
travel, make travel insurance
part of the entire package.
What did a great fare do for
you when you had to cancel
and got nothing back? Do it.
At some point, you won't be

-:She said the road, as com-
pleted, so far fulfills the
vision of a limited-access

sidewalks, buffers from
neighborhoods and decora-
tive lighting;
State Rep. Adam Fetter-
man, D-port St. Lucie, who
appeared with his 3 1/2-
year-old son, Noah, said he


would work to have the
project completed at least
by the time his son is 10
years old.
Despite the many years
the project has taken, Vice
Mayor Jack Kelly said the
project is on schedule so far.
* It's a project, he said,
that's been supported by
nearly 90 percent of the res-
idents.
He predicts the 'road will
have a lot of traffic, as it will
save driving time by at least
10 minutes for residents in


the southern part of the
city.
Former Mayor Bob Min-
sky, who attended the rib-
bon cutting, said the need-
for environmental permits
was responsible for a lot of
the time involved in finish-
ing the project.
The city had the money
for years,, but had to wait
getting permits.
He predicted the city will
complete the final stretch.
"It's looking good," Mr.
Minsky said.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY St. Lucie"
County residents are being urged to
conserve water during what might be a-
record dryseason. -
At the end of January, the area had
only received just more than 2 inches
of rain. -
That's the fourth-driest start to the,
dry season .since 1932, South-Florida
Water Management District officials
say. .
It's not surprising, said Iynente Tra-
bulsy, a spokeswoman for the district.
"Florida is a land of rwo extremes,"
she said. "We are either too wet or too
dry."' -
*During this part of the year, she said,
the area is clearly too dry.
.Thelevel 'of Lake Okeechobee. is
dropping every day, and "we are starl?-
ing to see the effects of ouir dry. sea'
son," she said.
SBecause of the situation, residents.
are only allowed to wafer lawns rice a
week, 'and not between the hours of 10
a.m. and 4 p.m. -
That would be the time when the
largest amount of water would evapo-


rate.
If this doesn't work, she said, the dis-
trict could impose stricter measures,
such as one-day-a-week watering.
"It is very important to stress water
conservation, so we 'don't have to.
resort to those pleasures?" Ms. Trabul-'
sysaid. .
sOne danger of not conserving water,
she said, is that wells could suffer from
:saltwater intrusion. "
Conserving water is not only good
for. rte environment and water supply,
it also lowers water bills. Ms. Trabulsy
said.
Some ways of saving water are obvi-
ous, she said, but many people don't
think ofthem. I
Turn off water while brushing teeth,
use an aerator to clean the driveway
and cover the pool, to reduce evapora-
':tfioh.

More conservation tips
provided by the district:
Don't over water your lawn, no
more than once a week in the winter or
twice a week in the summer. A good
rain eliminates the need for watering
-for up to-two weeks. Buy a rain gauge,

From page 2
Plant native and/or drought-toler-
ant grasses, grounrid covers, shrubs and
trees. Once established, they don't
need water as frequently and usually
will survive a dry period without
watering.
Use a broom or blower instead of a
hose to clean your driveway or side-
walk.
Use. a shut-off nozzle on your hose.
When finished, turn-it off at the faucet
instead of at the nozzle.
Do not leave sprinklers or hoses
unattended. A hose can waste 600 gal-
lons or more in only a few hours.
Consider using a commercial car
wash that recycles water. If you wash
your own car, park on the grass and
use a hose with an automatic shut-off
nozzle.
Avoid installing ornamental water
features (such as fountains), unless,
they use recycled water.

'Use it to .water your indoor plants or

Make sure your home is leak-free.
Check your water meter %when you are
certain that no water is being used. If
the meter reading changes. you have a

Repair dripping faucets by replac-
ing washers. One drop per second
wastes 2.700 gallons of water per year.
Retrofit all household faucets by
installing aerators with -flow restric-

If the toilet handle frequently sticks
in the flush position, replace or adjust
it.
Install a toilet displacement device
to cut down on the amount of water
needed for each flush. Consider low-
.volume toilets, which use less than
half the water of older models.
Take shorter showers. Replace your
showerhead with an ultra-low-flow

When the smoker puffs on the end,
it results in the release of nicotine.
The smoker inhales and exhales
steam.
There is no second-hand smoke
and no odor to clothing, Ms. Mayer
said.
Another positive aspect, she said, is
that smokers avoid the chemicals that


growers spray on tobacco. It also pro-
tects the environment because ciga-
rette butts contain leach cadmium,
arsenic and lead into the ground
when the butts come in contact with
rain, Ms. Mayer said. -
Fish and animals often die from
eating the cigarette butts, which can
take 25 years to decompose, she said.
She can be reached at- (772) 879-
6664. Find out more about the product

Even pet owners can promote a
green lifestyle.
Kim Lafferty, owner of All Star Pet
and Grooming, said she sells natural
foods and treats, shampoos and other
products for cats'and dogs.
"We can- do any kind of special
orders," she said.
She also does natural grooming that

Living gluten-free and healthy with better infonnation


By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST. LUCIE For years, just
going shopping was like playing
Russian roulette for Pat Meier,
She didn't know what foods were
loaded and which weren't.
"I was suffering for years and
years," Meier said. "I tried alternative
diets.
"I went to the doctor and he told me
my colon was shutting down.
"I would have been in trouble."
With her life in jeopardy, Ms. Meier
finally found out what her longtime
affliction was.
"I had celiac disease," Meier said. "I
was told that I was gluten-sensitive,
but I didn't know what gluten-sensi-
tive really was."
Helping to make things easier for
Meier and the estimated more than 2
million people in the United States
that have the condition is education.
Recently, Nutrition S'mart in Port St.
Lucie had a "Gluten Free Day" to help
raise awareness and enable those that
have celiac disease to eat healthier


and not feel isolated.
"People come in hereall the time
looking for gluten-free products,"
general manager Erica Kunzman said.
"This makes it a little easier."
While for many, gluten the
common. name given to proteins in
specific grains, including all forms of
wheat, as well as rye, barley and -
triticale is harmless. For people
with celiac disease, it can be deadly.
The digestive disorder, that affects
children and adults, flares up when
gluten is ingested, causing the villi in
the small intestine to become dam-
aged. Once damaged, the villi are
unable to effectively absorb basic
nutrients such as proteins, vitamins
and minerals.
Left untreated, many longterm
conditions such as osteoporosis,
intestinal lymphomas, diabetes, liver
and thyroid disease can occur.
While gluten is mostly found in
food, it can sometimes be found in
other products such as medicines,
vitamins and lip balm.
"It was life-changing,"Ms. Meier
said. "You can become depressed."


With heightened awareness of the disease, more products have
become readily available in recent years. While improvements in
health don't happen overnight, adhering to a gluten-free diet will
help them come sooner than later.


Now 61 years old, Ms. Meier was
diagosed six years ago.
"You have to be totally aware going
into the grocery store to effectively
buy," Ms. Meier said. "It's hard to
prepare meals. I have to make every-
thing from scratch."
Life was anything but, simple for
Alan Oxendine. The 43-year-old had
health-related problems for years, but
had no clue what the culprit was.
"I was sick all the time," Mr. Oxen-
dine said. "My parents didn't know
what I had. In school I had a lot of
problems.
"The other students would hear my
stomach grumbling and it bothered
me."
For Mr. Oxendine, finding out he
had celiac disease was just half the
battle.
"It was hard to find products (that.


were gluten-free) just five years ago,"
Mr. Oxendine said. "Also, a lot of the
stuff in grocery stores didn't taste
right."
With heightened awareness of the
disease, more products have become
readily available in recent years.
"I'm finding a way to enjoy life
again," Mr. Oxendine said. "I can eat
bread and pizza."
While improvements in health don't
happen overnight, adhering to a
gluten-free diet will help them come
sooner than later.
"It took about a year later to feel
better once I was diagnosed," Ms.
Meier said. "'I'm healthier than most
people. Sometimes the organs have
suffered so badly (before a diagnosis
is made).
"When I was diagnosed I felt so
alone. Now I know I am one of many."

Writingabout a


healthier ifestyle


became a family affair


By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com
While Gen Short-Hamiwka has
only been publishing the Treasure
Coast edition of "Natural Awaken-
ings" for just about four years, her,
knowledge of healthy living,
learned over a lifetime, could fill
volumes.
"People need to be educated,"
Mrs. Short-Hamiwka said. "If you
teach people preventive care, then
they will rarely get sick. It's such a
simple concept.
"I'm 53 years old and I feel better
than when I was 23. I'm healthier
and more vibrant."
Armed with a desire to help oth-
ers, Mrs. Short-Hamiwka took over
the monthly publication when a lot
of people were still skeptical over


the benefits of the holistic
approach to healing and nutrition.
"People were a lot less open,"
Mrs. Short-Hamiwka said.. "Now it's
becoming more mainstream. The
buzz word is green. To some people
it's just trendy, but it's a step in the
right direction."
The change in attitude and the
overall acceptance of the "alterna-
tive" lifestyle is reflected in the
spike in circulation of the maga-
zine.
"When I took over there were just
32 publishers," she said. "Now there
are 66 publishers over the United
States. In Miami we have an English
and Spanish edition.
"We have over 2 million readers.
We've really spreading the word."

Best of Broadway


comes to Sunrise


By Shelley Koppel
Entertainment writer
FORT PIERCE When
Neil Berg brings his revue,
"100 Years of Broadway" to
the Sunrise Theatre on
April 9, he brings Broad-
way performers, as well.
The five actors have
extensive Broadway and
national touring company
credits. This was one of Mr.
Berg's goals in putting'
together the show.
"I'd worked with so
many stars as a producer,"
he said. "I'd been doing it
for a long time, and I put it
together for my mother,
for the average musical
theater lover. I put in songs
that people who love
musicals would love. It
brings back so many
memories."
Mr. Berg is a
composer/lyricist who
wrote the off-Broadway
show, "The Prince and the
Pauper" and is at work at a
musical version of the film
"Grumpy Old Men."
For the revue, he plays
the piano and' provides
background on the songs,
the shows and the per-
formers.
"I've met a lot of people
and can give backstage/
stories," he said. "It's like
I'm in my living room and
the singes are my friends
and have come to have a
party. The audience is
invited. It's a lot of fun."


The "friends" he's invited
include Brad Little, who
has performed the role of
the Phantom in "The
Phantom of the Opera,"
nearly 2200 times on
Broadway and around the
world. He also appeared at
Linrcoln Center in "Any-
thing Goes."
He will sing some songs
from "Phantom," opposite
Rita Harvey, who per-
formed the role of Chris-
tine on Broadway and in
the national touring com-
Spany and who recently
portrayed Hodel in the
Broadway revival of "Fid-
dler on the Roof."
Carter Calvert appeared
as Grizabella in the nation-
al touring -company of
"'Cats" .and toured Europe
in "Smokey Joe's Caf6."

STAR SCOPES
James Tucker
Week of 4-3-2009


Aries-March 21-April 19
You are well known for daring
to dream big dreams and
then being bold enough to act
on and create them. Why? Not
only is it your time of the year,
but you climb up thehigher
slopes of life because of your
lofty thinking, strength and
courage. You are able to sur-
vey all things around you and
then pick and choose the
ones you love the best. This is
one of the main reasons why
you are such a.great leader.

Taurus-April 20-May20
Venus in Taurus gives you ahn
edge in the heart department
this week. Your motivation' is
fueled by the desires living in
your heart for a better life. No
one is more hard working and
determined than Taurus.
When you set your plans into
motion you are capable of
performing miracles. Why?
Because you never quit or
give up until you victory is
assured. You are an inspira-
tion to others even if they
don't always tell you.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
Working the divine plan living
in your soul continues to bring
you mastery over life. You
know how to communicate
and manifest in that order.
The funny thing is that physi-
cal rewards don't bring you as
much satisfaction nowadays
as much as the spiritual. These
are respect, love, honor and
human dignity. Living a quality
life is more important to you
now than quantity. You are
creating an awesome life.
Cancer-June 22-July 22
Don't fret over life's recent
struggles. This is just life's ebb
and flow. The secret to bal-
ance is to work harder when
things are flowing and
increasing. Then hold back
when they are ebbing. Being
in the flow of monthly cycles
of energy is just as important
as finding daily balance. Fol-
low your heart, trust your
instincts and use the natural
rhythms of life to enhance
and bring you your well-
earned and deserved good.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
Measure the quality of your
life by the joy you feel in your
heart. You were born to rule
by being of service to others.
You are at your best when you
are able to help someone else
find the answer to their life
challenge. Everyone gains

Hello smart shoppers,
hope you had a good
week. I
Please note, some of this
week's recipes contain
Crisco. It has been around
since 1911. Before that
time, lard (pork fat) was
used. Today's Crisco has no
trans-fat, whether you
purchase the blue or green
label.
Easter is coming! Today's
column will give you
recipes for very old, tradi-
tional Italian Easter pies. If
it weren't for the requests I
have received, I would
never have thought to print
them. They're time con-
suming but with some,
tradition is tradition.
Pizza Rusticais a spicy
meat pie. I will give you a
family recipe and another
from a friend.
Ricotta pie is a sweet,
cheesecake-like dessert
that's not too hard to make
with a sweet cookie crust. It
requires the optional
addition of candied diced
orange and citron. I always
thought citron meant all
kinds of candied citrus,
didn't you?
I went to my World Book
encyclopedia. The citron
tree, native to Asia, bears a
grapefruit-size lemon-like
fruit with a thick rind. The
fruit is considered inedible,
but the aromatic rind is
candied and used in
baking.
SWhile reading this
information, I remembered
a huge tree my parents had
in Boynton Beach. Itwas
there when they bought the
house and we could never
* understand why anyone
would plant such a strange
tree with inedible fruit.
Noticing the tree, an
Asian family knocked on
rnoms door and asked if.,.
they could buy the fruit.
SModmntold them torhelp
themselves, but they
insisted on paying. Twenty-
five cents'apiece seemed,
fair and they picked several.
A few days later, many
more friends appeared and
as the tree was getting bare,
the price went up to 75
Scents each. When I finally
Learned what citron was I
put two and two together;
mom and dad had a citron
re.
i See you next week.

baseball

team's

season
By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com-
PORT ST. LUCIE As a
Tampa Bay Rays fan, Danny
Davis watched intently as his
team partied after dispatch-
ing the Red Sox in the Ameri-
can League Championship
Series lastyear.
This year, Davis h6pes to be
the one celebrating.
The Treasure Coast senior is
one of the reasons the Titans
baseball team had gotten off
to their best start in school
history at 10-0, gearing up for
a run at the state title. The
squad has suffered a couple of
setbacks since, but Davis feels
the lull is temporary.
. "We're coming off of two
losses right now," Davis said.
"We need to wake up the bats
a little bit. We need to learn
how to be more disciplined at
the plate."
While the last few games
might have been disappoint-
ing for Davis and the Titans,
they don't diminish the way
the team exploded out of the
gate.
Combining solid pitching,
strong defense and timely hit-
ting, the Titans were domi-
tiant, including big victories
over South Fork and John Car-
roll, state finalists year ago.
"Those two wins stood out
for me," Davis said.
The meeting with the Bull-
dogs was definitely highlight-
ed on the Titans schedule.
South Fork defeated Treasure
Coast 3-2 in the regional quar-
terfinals last year on their way
to Sarasota.
"That was the one game we
were all waiting for," Davis
said. "We wanted it bad."

New Permanent Teeth......

A Life Changing Experience


Modern Advances, in dental'
technology and surgical techniques
mean now, more and more people who
have lost their natural teeth can live
fuller, richer, and happier lives. They
allow the person to go to favorite
restaurants and order what they want
to eat, instead of what they can eat.
Dental implants can restore a person's
ability to eat, smile, kiss and talk with
confidence and comfort.
A dental implant is a substitute
tooth root that provides a stable foun-
dation for replacement teeth. The
implant is anchored into the jawbone
through a process where the bone and
the implant become integrated, pro-
viding the same stability as natural
teeth. This means that replacement
teeth can look, feel, and function just
like real teeth!
Since dental implants, like
teeth, are embedded in the jaw, the
painful chewing associated with
removable teeth is eliminated. Unlike
traditional dentures, implants sup-
ports dentures so that there is little
pressure on the gums.
While dental implants have
been available for many years, new
advance for many years, new advances
make them available to more people.
.New techniques can provide support
for implants where the implants could
not have been placed before.
Additionally, dental implants
can be used to solve a variety of dental
problems. For example, implants can
be used to replace a single missing
tooth instead of making a traditional
bridge. They can be placed to support


an entire bridge where the natural.
teeth are missing, or they can be used
to give the patient a better fitting den-
ture so they can eliminate the prob-
lems the problems traditionally associ-
ated with dentures.
Best of all, you'll be able to
smile more naturally and be comfort-
able in normal activities such as talk-
ing, laughing, smiling and eating.
Explore dental implants as a
solution to your personal dental prob-
lems. Cal Dr. Rankin today to schedule
your FREE personal consultation and
examination, dental implants can help
you smile and eat with confidence
again!

Xlped manufacture the
"IbI'as second run, stroking a
leadoff single before advanc-
g to second on awild pitch.
An error sent him to third
and Davis scored on single to
leA-center.
.' That was a really good win
for us," Davis said. "It gave us
a lot of confidence.",
The same could be said for
Davis' play on the diamond.
He has excelled in all areas of
4 game, whether he's on the
nlund, in the field or at the
plate.
"He has improved tremen-
dously on offensee" head
coach Kyle Smith said. "The
- first year he had the most"

18: Last year, he had the least
with six. :

pitching," Smith said. "If he
gets himself into tight spots,
he manages to get himself out
of the tight spots."
Davis' progress on the
mound is tremendous con-
sidering this is his first season
as part of the Titans' regular
starting rotation.
"Last year, I,only pitched in
a few games," Davis said.
While growing as a pitcher
is reward enough, Davis also
draws inspiration from trying
to duplicate his brother Paul's
success while a member of
the Titans.
"I'm trying to do just as
good as he. did," Davis said.
"Last year (as a senior) he had,
.an 8-1 record. I'm trying to
compete with him, but I don't
want to jinx it.
"I think I could have done
better. I need to hit my spots a
"little more."
When not pitching, Davis
easily transitions to shortstop,
where his coach says he has
few equals.
"He has the qualities of a
Division I shortstop, Smith
said. "If a ball is hit to the left
side of the infield, I'm confi-
dent he's making the play.
", Ninety-nine percent of the
time, he does.
"When a college asks about
him, I say he's a shortstop."
While Davis said he-' is
undecided about making the


central site in 1988.
"That would be amazing,"
Davis said. "It would be like a
home field for us.
"Our team chemistry is
strong. That's helped us out a
lot."
