Woman accused of
shoplifting attempt
leaves behind photo
It wasn't hard for authori-
ties to identify a woman sus-
pected of attempting to
shoplift almost $200 of mer-
chandise from WalMart in
Port St. Lucie, according to a
police report.
WalMart employees told
Port St. Lucie Police officers
that two women paid for $70
in merchandise, but fled
after they were questioned
whether they paid for all the
items in their shopping carts
as they were leaving. They
left behind everything,
including the merchandise
for which they paid, the
report added.
WalMart security employ-
ees discovered they had left
behind envelopes contain-
ing photos of Christy Lynn
McGaw, one 'of the suspect-
ed attempted shoplifters,
the report said.
The envelope included
her name, address and tele-
phone number, the report
said.
After police contacted Ms.
McGaw, she and Tammy
Lynn Sharp returned to the
store where they were
arrested.
'Ms. McGaw, 40, and Ms.
Sharp, 37, both of 1892 S.E.
Manth Lane, Port St. Lucie,
were charged with retail
theft.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
During the 'upcoming
monthnt. St. Lucie County
School district officials will
plan for school closures, lay-
offs, program cuts and salary
decreases.
But they'll al'o be putting
together a plan to deal with
the situation it ii changes and
more revenue is available.
Last week, in wha tSuperibi-
tendent Michael Lannon
called a "dark day," the School
Board unanimously approved
his recommendations for $30
million in cuts. ,
That follows $23 million in
cuts last year.
In voting for the cuts on
April 7, School Board Chair-
woman Judi Miller said she
felt she had no choice.
S "It's painful. i's difficult,"
she said. "It's something we
must do."
Board member Kathryn
Hensley expressed a similar
sentiment.
"I don't like any of this, but
there's no (other) place to go,"
she said.

primarily help people who can't :
pay for their prescriptions. But Dr.
Singh has said some of it may be
used for other crucial needs, such
as purchasing school supplies, M\s.
See SEED, Al4


Although the plan calls for
laying off 331 employees,
including 157 teachers, no
personnel decisions will be
made until the end of May,
officials said.
Mr. Lannon's plan also calls
for closiingPort St. Lucie Ele-
mentary School, Southbend
K-8 School and the Angle-
wood Center, which serves
students with children.
Other features include a 1
percent across-the-board pay
cut elimination offunding for
school resource officers and
district support for junior var-
sity athletics.
Mr. Lannon said the prob-
lem isn't that too much money
is being spent on education.
"It's not about expenses," he
said. "It's about revenues."
He said the cuts are more,
painful than anything "other
than the death of a loved one."
No part of the school dis-
trict was immune from. cub,
he said.
"If you look through the
plan, we have looked every-
where (for cuts)," Mr. Lannon
said.

Eco-center holds Earth Day celebration


By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
This year's Earth Day cele-
bration theme at the
Oxbow Eco-Center is
"growing green together,"
but it's not just about creat-
Sing a garden.
Jen Howard, program
coordinator, said one part
of the message is those who
adopt green practices in
their lives can actually grow
their wallets.
Using reusable products
and compact fluorescent
,light bulbs are two money-
saving ideas that will be
promoted.
Ms. Howard said the
event, which is the largest
Earth Day festival in St.
Lucie County, promotes
conservation in general.
"We want to make people
aware of some things they
can do to improve the envi-
ronment, and to highlight


the many conservation
organizations and nonprof-
its we have in the county,":
she said.
The St. Lucie Young
Democrats, for example,
will give away magazines
and other prizes at their
booth, said Carol Brick,
who has operated the
booth for several years.
This year, she said, they
will encourage attendees to
use reusable items, such as
containers.
She decided on that after
reading about a beach
cleanup, involving a lot of
trash that could have been
avoided if reusable contain-
ers had been used, she said.
Additionally, she will give
out information about
plants that attract butter-
flies and ways to make their
backyard friendly to
wildlife, Ms. Brick said.
Other highlights of the.
festival include:
The St. Lucie Regional


Herpetological Society will
display reptiles, while the
Treasure Coast Wildlife
Center will have birds of
prey.
A wildlife parade, where
participants dress up as
animals.
Indian River State Col-
lege students will present
the happy home, where
homeowners can get ideas
about making their homes
green. This includes using
recycled furniture and
organic fabrics.
The Fort Pierce Utilities
Authority will give away
compact fluorescent light
bulbs.
A sort of scavenger
hunt, where participants
look for answers to ques-
tions about the environ-
ment.

JADE
There Is no other stone (not crys-
tal) that is as resistant to breakage
and chipping as jade.
This inherent toughness made it a
superior weapon and tool for early
man. To him it meant survival, and
its colors were reminiscent of
nature. As a result, jade became
known as a gift from heaven. It
was even' more esteemed' than
diamonds or gold to some civiliza-
,tions in Asia, Central American
and the South Pacific. According
-to the great Chinese philosopher
Confucius, jade was highly valued
for a variety of reasons-its polish
and brilliancy represents the
.hole of purity;,its compactness
and hardness represent the sure-
ness of intelligence ; the pure and
prolonged sound which it gives
Iforth when one strikes it,repre-
sents music; its color represents
loyalty. Today jade is worn by mil-
lions of Orientals for good luck and
health, and.it is given tb celebrate
itl important occasions in life such
,as 'births, marriages, anniver-
s ides and business agreements.
,The Spanish conquistadors are
credited for giving us the term
'lade' When they learned that
Sr.3ires in Mexico were wearing
jade to relieve kidney ailments.
they called it PIEDRA DE IJADA
meaning "stone of the- loins'.
G;ad aily., the Spanish term
erokred to "jiade" The early
Romnans had also considered lade'
to be a goob cure for kidney ail-
ments such as nephritis (kidney
intlameation) and called jade
LAPIS NEPHRITICUS-"stone of
*.-p.l iu. Later the Latin terri was
reduced to nephritee" and was
usia sa an alternate word for3de
In, 1863, the French chem;si
Augustine Damour realized that
jade was hvo diltereni minerals. so
he coined the world jadeate lor
Burmese jade to distinguish ii from
Chinese lade-nephila. The
Chinese had been aware ol mhe

split tele-microscope system for her designed
to function like a bifocal." The top part
allowed her to see the cards on the table and
the bottom was for her hand."

expensive. Some reading glasses cost as -little
as $475 and some magnifiers $100. Every case
is different because people have different lev-

23 to discuss the project,
Mayor Christensen said.
"We just have to keep the
topic hot on their agenda,"
she said.
At a political function
recently, she mentioned the
project to Senate majority
leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.,
who she's hoping can help in
the effort to get the federal.
permits.
Sen. Reid was interested
in the project because the
money is available and it
would provide jobs quickly
once approval is granted,
she said.
Sen. Reid's transportation
manager will attend the
April 23 meeting, she said.
Because of the bureaucra-
cy involved, she said, "I wish
we could have avoided
using federal money."
Mayor Christensen urged
residents to contact legisla-
tors about the project to
speed up the approval.
In another matter, Mayor
Christensen said, the city is
looking at the possibility of
layoffs next year.
Efforts to get the unions
representing city employees
to agree to a pay freeze to
avoid layoffs have been
unsuccessful, she said.
She has asked for a $2 mil-
lion reduction in the Police
Department budget and a
$1 million cut in the Parks
and Recreation Department
budget, she said.

Criminals on the street

'"' A convicted drug dealer is being held for trial on charges of
4'2aggravated assault and other offenses after police said he was
.,.armed with a semiautomatic handgun in a struggle with an
officer.
,aTorrunately, the officer was wearing his bulletproof vest with
a a trauma plate and as a result, hewas not injured, but the ques-
tion remains, why was this dangerous convict permitted to.
Sroam our streets?

A personal view on the president

.:Editor's note: This is a response to 'Obama is Everyone's
president, printedApril 3.
You are correct on two fronts only: Obama is.our president,

occasions were very rude.
But maybe, like myself, they are sick and tired of hearing
what a great president Obama is. They are smart enough to
know the majority of the American people voted him in, only
because they were bush wacked by his sly and obviously
crooked campaign. He used the Association of Community
SOrganizations for Reform Now to drunk up crooked voter regis-
t radons. He ran on "change," but he didn't tell anyone what the
change would be. Thus, we now have a president who is going
along with the European countries, trying to change our laws
Sand our currency.
SHe is releasing Guantanamo prisoners to who knows where.
Some, if not most of these prisoners, are people who tried to kill
Americans wherever they could find them. In fact, one of the
prisoners said just this week that he will take a month off and
Then rejoin theTaliban and kill every American he can.
Obama is against water boarding to make prisoners talk.
SWhat about our soldiers and prisoners over in Iraq who were
beheaded and set on fire? They weren't given the option of
C water boarding.
What about the stimulus package and the budget package?
. He is saddling our grandchildren and great-grandchildren with
. trillions of debt.
5 \ What about increasing the taxes on energy, which would
. have every American household pay thousands of a year for
those taxes?
He will not drill foroil on our coasts, even though the price of
oil keeps rising.
He doesn't say anything about building more nuclear plants,
't which are cleaner and less expensive than the oil from the
Arabs. -
He was a senator for only one year when he campaigned for
the office of president, so he has no experience to run a country..
How sad is that?
His cabinet is made up of people who didn't even pay their
income taxes until they were nominated.
He wants to nationalize our health system when every coun-
try that has this system tells us how bad it is.
I could go on and on.
I don't consider Obama my presidentjustbecause the major-
ity of the blind and confused people voted for him. '
George Bush was my president, whom I voted for, even
though I was a democrat at the time.
By the way. I switched parties when the democrats and left-
ists started to go to the far left just before Obama came along. I
could see through them like a piece of saran wrap.
George Bush kept us free and safe for seven years before he
got out of office. He fought for our freedom so the terrorists
wouldn't return to our soil and attack us again. This certainly
won't happen with Obama in office. He seems to be cozying up
to our enemies.
The thing that irks me th.e most is that President Bush was
maligned and spat upon by the leftists and most democrats.
They tried to stop everything he ever tried to do to make this
country great.
Why do you feel that the conservatives don't have a right to
do the same to Obama if they don't like what he's doing?
I feel that Obama, the leftists and the Democrats have put us
in the awful predicament we are in today.
SuIe, some of it was caused during the Bush administration,
but Obama has made e erything worse.
Please don't say that Obama has been in office for only a
month, because what he has done so far is far worse than the
situationwe were in before he came into office. ,
One more point. I have two grandsons in the military, a
marine who has been in Iraq, and a sailor who has been to the
Persian Gulf twice. I also have a granddaughter who was in the
U.S. Navy when Iraq war started. All three have been proud to
serve their country under President Bush.
I resent it when you say that you are a true American only if

Gift from the heart


Mitch Kloorfain/chief photographer
F. K. Sweet fourth grade students Charles DeLorenzo, Gaby Nixon and Natalie Baumgarten present Michael Lannon,
school superintendent, with a book of poetry they had written in class using their language skills and descriptive
words to describe colors. Touched by their generosity,-'l will be taking this book to share with my family in North Car-
olina' said Mr. Lannon after sharing a personal moment with the students,



Multiple computers can share devices


M anypeople don't
realize the full
networking poten-
tial their wireless hot spot
Presents, and are still
walking files back and forth
across the house on a disk
("sneaker net") to use a
printer, scanner or whatever.
I thought this week I'd go
over more details on what
kinds of things are possible
andhowto get started.
Let's sayyou have three
different computers in the
house, all connected to the
Intemet using a wireless
router.
All three machines "see"
the Internet just fine, but
only one of them is connect-
ed to a printer. At this point.
if you were surfing the net on
of'tifthetwo machines not
connected to the printer,
and wanted to print aWeb
page or an e-mail (or any file
for that matter), the only
options you have are to save
the file to a disk and walk it
over to the machine con-
nected to the printer, open
the file andprint it..
I suppose.you could e-
mail the file to the other
machine, but instead, let's
just consider "sharing" the
printer like we share the
Internet. Then, all the
computers in the house
could access the printer just
asiftheywere connected
directly to that machine.
Wouldn't that be nice? \


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY



The first thing we need to
do to set this up is make sure
that all the machines are in
the same "workgroup."
Ifyour machines are all
runningWindows XPand
you haven't changed
anything networkrelated,
thenyou may already be set
up correctly.
Let's say that instead of
having three XPmachines to,
connect, you have one XP
machine, oneWindo% s 2000
machine and one running
vWindows 98 '
We'll start with the XP box
first. Right click your "my
computer" icon, and then
click properties. Next click
the "computer name" tab.
The page that opens will
have a computer descrip-
tion, full computer name
and a workgroup field.
Whatever is in the work-
group field, write that down
(or, you can change it by
clicking the change button,
just be sure to write down
whatever you change it to
because you're going to need
it).
Next, go to the Windows
2000 box and right click that
my computer icon. Next,


click properties and then
click'the network identifica-
tion tab: There you should
see the full computer name
and the workgroup listed. If
the workgroup does not
match what you wrote
down, click the properties
button and change the'
workgroup field to match
whatever you wrote down,
click OK, apply, then reboot.
When the machine wakes
backup, itwill be inthe
same workgroup.-.
Next, we'll look at the
Windows 98 box. Instead of
right clicking the my
computer icon, right click
the network neighborhood
icon instead. Then click the
identification tab. Here you
will find ite cnrtputer,nanme.
\\orkgrtiu and de'scri'pdon
fields. Again, make sure the
workgroup matches what.
you previously wrote down,
click OK, then reboot.
OK, so now all three
machines are in the same
workgroup. We have to share
the printer so the other
machines can'print to it. On
Sthe computer that has the
printer physically attached
to it, click start, go to control
panel and double click the
printer icon.
Next, right click the printer
you wait to share and click
sharing. Make sure the "share
'this printer" button is clicked,
and write down the share

Drug interactions can be deadly serious


Iwas recendy taking m%
medication and looked
down to see three pills
that looked exactlythe
same in my hand.
I really hadn't been
paying attention and I
,,..didn't know if I'd taken out .
the right combination of
two of one pill and one of
the other. I took out the
vials, pulled out a pillfrom
each and compared the
numbers on each tablet to
make sure I had it right.
The experience reminded
me how important it is to
know what you're taking,
why you're taking it, what
the correct dosage is and
whether it interacts with
food or other medications.
I did some research and
found out that there are
many drugs that shouldn't
be taken together and even
foods that can cause
problems when mixed with
drugs or supplements.
The Duke University
"Health News" newsletter
for April 2009 lists seven
potentially life-threatening
combinations.
-They include Dilatrate,
used for heart disease and
Viagra, used for hyperten-
sion and erectile dysfunc-
tion; Sporanox, prescribed
for fungal infections an
Zocor, used for high
cholesterol; Eldepryl, used
for Parkinson's disease and
Demerol, used for pain;
y ,'.:,-' '''.. 1" '. .-. '


and Flomiax, used for
enlarged prostate and
SViagra, used for erectile
dysfunction.
However, the list doesn't
stop there. Michael Bihari,
on-the Web site about.com,
reminds readers that.over-
the-counter medications
and supplements can cause
problems as well.
Many. people know that
combining aspirin and i
blood-thinners, such as
Coumadin.or Plavix, can
cause excessive bleeding.
Did you know that gingko
biloboa can cause bleeding
if taken with aspirin?
Neither needs a prescrip-
tion, but the.combination
can produce serious side
effects.
Some antacids can
interfere with the absorp-
tion of antibiotics; the
labels often note that they
shouldn't be taken at the
same time. The same is true
of dairy products.
Vegetables containing
vitamin K, such as broccoli,
kale and spinach can
decrease the effectiveness
of the blood thinner
Coumadin.
Alcohol mixed with over-


the-counter anti-inflam-
matory and pain medica-
tions, such as aspirin,
ibuprofen and acetamino-
phen (Tylenol) can increase
the risk of stomach bleed-
ing or li er damage
In addition, taking
several medications with
acetaminophen at one time
for a cold or other
symptoms can lead to
liver damage and et en .:
death.
Even grapefruit is not
.ris k-free. Dr. Bihari reports
that more than 50 prescrip-
tion drugs are affected by
grapefruit and grapefruit.
juice: It inhibits an enzyme
in the intestine that breaks
down certain drugs. More
of;the drug enters the blood
stream and you may get too
much of a good thing.
While drugs for many
conditions, including
abnormal heart rhythm,
allergies, anxiety, epilepsy,
enlarged prostate and pain
can be affected by grape-
fruit juice, stations, used to
treat high cholesterol and
calcium-channel blockers,
used to treat hypertension
and heart disease, are the
ones most likely to cause
problems when combined
with grapefruit juice.
The doctor suggests
several measures to prevent
drug.interactions:
*When taking a new
prescription, find out
exactly how and when to


take it and if there are any
interactions.
*Tell your doctor or
pharmacist about any
supplement you take.'
*Read the label and insert
about drug interaction.
*Make a list of everything
you take and review it with
your doctor and pharma-
cist.
*Try to use one pharma-
cy, so there is record of
.wh a you take."'' '
*Don't be embarrassed to
ask questions. You are
better safe than sorry.

River tour features native wildlife

PORT ST. LUCIE -
Cruising with River Lilly
Cruises is more than just a
boat ride. It's a chance to see
Florida's wildlife in its native
habitat.
SCruise goers often see
alligators, birds, wild pigs
and hogs, manatees, river

Dana Wade and his wife,
Deena, say they operate the

'They began offering eco-

The business offered a

PORT ST. LUCIE -
Beginning April 19 at 9
a.in., anyone with Internet
access will have a chance to
win a Port St. Lucie home
that has received the highest
"green" designation.-
The home, constructed in
the town of Tradition,
received a platinum designa-
tion from U.S. Building
'Council, because it contains
numerous features to
protect the environment and
conserve energy.
It cost about $750,000 to
build the 2,430-square-foot,
three-bedroom, three-bath
house, with screened porch
and two-car garage, said
Leon Camarda, the builder
for Tradition.
But with today's economy,
it's hard to say what the

selling price would be if the
home was put on the
market, Mr. Camarda said.
The house will be featured
on the television network on
April 19 at 8 p.m.
From the inside to the'
outside, he said, the home
contains green features.
The first step was to decide
on the placement of the
house on the lot, so that
during the day it would
receive the most daylight
and the least heat.
"We're getting a lot of
natural light in the house,"
he said.
In a hallway is a solar tube
that concentrates daylight,
enough so that it appears an
electric light is on. At night,
an.electric light replaces the
sun.
The foundation, made of
concrete, is recyclable, while
the walls are made of 6-inch
solid concrete and 2 1/2
inches of Styrofoam on both
sides, he said. That made the
Foundation durable, while
reducing the need for air
conditioning and heating,
SMr. Camarda said.
The air conditioning
system has a high filtration
system, he said.
In the bathrooms, the
toilets contain low-flow, dual
flush systems to reduce the
use of waterwhen necessary.
Aerators are included in the
facets to reduce use of
water.
Many of the fixtures in the
house are made of compo-
nents that have low volatility,
thus keeping the air cleaner,
he said.
A lot of the furnishing,
linens and other materials,
he said, are made of organic
and recycled components.
A table, for example, is made
ofreclaimed wood, he said.
The Sears Kenmar appli-
ances in the kitchen are
rated high for energy
efficiency, Mr. Camarda said.

of water.
A garden includes spinach,
strawberries, onions, lettuce
and citrus trees.
A rain barrel was placed
under a water spout from the
roof to captured water that
can used for the garden, Mr.
Camarda said.
The house alsohas solar
panels and a solar water
heater.
Mr. Camarda said the
green features probably
added 15 to 20 percent to the
cost of the house, but over a
period of time, that will pay
for itself in lower utility bills.
"It's a trade-off between
pay now or pay later," he
said.
The architect for the
project, Michael Carlson,
who owns CarlsonStudio
Architecture in Sarasota, said
one major challenge was to
design the house in a month.
As preparation, he said, he
held a workshop to get ideas
for what green features
would be included before
construction began.,
One feature not in many
homes today is a computer
with an energy monitoring ,
system. At any one time, Mr.
Carlson said, it can tell for
example, how much of solar
energy is being used. Such a
monitoring system is more
common in large businesses,
he said.
But he added that in the
near future, the monitoring
system will become more
common.
Many people, Mr. Carlson
said, cannot afford a home
that qualifies for a platinum
designation.
But some lesser designa-
tions can be achieved
without adding significant
cost to the house. he said.
The winner of the HGTV
sweepstakes will not only get
the house, but all the
furnishings and the moni-
toring system.

Fraud
From page Al
That's considering the
probability of budget cuts
and a limited number of
investigations, he said.
With Internet cases that
often involve the criminals in
other countries, investigators
can spend large amounts of
time and never get anywhere,
he said.
With those type of Internet
scams becoming more
prevalent, the Port St. Lucie
Police Department held a
seminar to help people avoid
being scammed. Future sem-
inars are planned for July 29
and Nov. 5.
Detective Wade Willnow.
said scammers typically offer
people a chance to make
money.
"They're going to get
money from you and string
you along," he said.
It usedto be that scammers 1
would send out letters, but
now there are many varia-
tions.
One type of scam involves
an offer to make money while
sending goods overseas, Mr.
Willnow said.
The victim doesn't know
the goods are purchased with
stolen'credit card numbers
and then shipped to them
initially, he said.,
In the end, law enforce-
ment will look. to the initial
receiver as the criminal, Since -
there's virtually no way to
find the real criminals, he
said, .
''There's going to be a war-
rant for-your arrest if we don't
get this rraigh[ened out," he
said.
Another scam involves e-
mail that directs a pet son to a
phony bank site that appears
real. '
The scanmmers know if rhe\
send out enough e-manil, a
certain percentage will use
the bank involved, he said .
"If it happens to be your
bank, you might be suscepti-
ble," he said.


Once a person submits
information, the criminals
can then get access to real
accounts, Detective Willnow
said.
The scammers don't know
who gets the e-mail, he said.
But once somebody
responds, the criminals know
the address is being used, the
detective said.
Another common scam,
Detective Willnow said, is for
criminals to send a bad check
or money order.
The letter may say recipi-
ents have won a prize in a for-
eign lottery, but in order to
'claim winnings, they must
return part of the money.
In the end, the check or
money order bounces, and
the victim must return all the
money to the bank, including
the fee sent to the scammers,
Detective Willnow
said.Recipients may feel that
"they (the bank) wouldn't
have cashed it if it wasn't
good."But, he said, there's a
federal law requiring the
bank to provide the cash.
However, Mr. Willnow said,
"You are ultimately responsi-
ble for the money you took
out and sent'away."
Besides not being able to
win a lottery that you didn't
enter, he said, it's illegal to
participate in such a foreign
lottery.
Some solicitations that
border on fraud include
offers to help with foreclo-
sure, he said.
The recipient ends up pay-
ing money "to, do exactly
what you could have done
yourself," he said.
Identity theft is increasing-
'ly becoming another tool to
steal money, Detective Kim
'Bailey said.
One way to prevent it is to
protect personal informa-.
tion, she said.
That includes not leaving.a
purse a car, even for a short
amount of time. *
The problem is, people
think, "of course, it's :not
going to happen to me," she
said.


According to a video pres-
entation at the seminar, day-
care centers and gyms are
popular venues for thieves to
get identity information.
In many cases, she said,
paying a bill online may be
safer than mailing a check.


Criminals will steal checks
left in mail boxes and then
use chemicals to remove the
writing from the checks, she
said.
They can then re-write the
check to whomever they
want.


The proposed Florida EnergySecure Line
could provide you and your neighbors with:
ENERGY SECURITY. The pipeline would generate
an uninterrupted supply of a safe, dependable
and clean energy source something Floridians
have been demanding and FPL is committed to
continuing to deliver.
JOBS. At its pdak, the pipeline would positively
impact more than 7,500 jobs, including the
creation of approximately 3,500 construction jobs.
TAX REVENUE. The pipeline would generate more
than $400 million in property tax benefits.
Please visit any time during the open house hours
in your community to review the proposed pipeline
corridor and personally speak with members of the
FPL project team about this important initiative for
Florida. Your feedback is important to us!

Mustard
From page Al
Malinowski said.
The donation comes at a
time Mustard Seed has
seen continual increases
in the number of people
seeking help with pre-
scriptions, utility bills,
rent and school supplies,
she said.
"We get literally hun-
dreds of telephone calls
every day," she said.


In many cases, people
are laid off from work, she
said, and they delay any
medical care until their
situation is critical enough
for them to end up in the
emergency room.
At the same time, she
said, donations of money,
food and clothing have
dropped.
In the past, she said, the
Mustard Seed thrift store

There's a great demand

Cheaper to operate
overseas
One of the nation's
largest chemical compa-
nies, Rohm & Haas, is cut-
ting jobs in the U.S. ,At the
same time, it maintains
facilities inVietnam, Turkey,
Russia and China, and is
expanding a plant in Tai-
wan. This is so sad.
'It is understandable,
however, as it is cheaper to
operate overseas. Our
shortsighted government
taxes production here at
one of the highest rates on
earth.
Outrage at spending
It is an understatement to
say the current bunch in
charge of our government
in Washington is guilty of
wildly extravagant spend-
ing.
I One.outrage from a long
list of costly itemsis a $2 bil-
lion increase in the subsidy
for childcare, however there
seems to be little outcry
about the huge deficit we
are leaving for our children
and grandchildren.


Delayed justice
There is an old but true
saying that justice delayed
is justice denied. However,
the lawyers enjoy the cur-
rent system of ridiculous
delays, because they benefit
financially by the unending
appeals and needless.

Aries-March 21-April 19
Making, a little quality time
for yourself will recharge
your batteries quicker than
anything else you could do.
This down time is planning
time. Make a list of the most
important things you want to
do in the next three months.
This makes the commitment.
Then act on the commit-
ments to create the realities.
Now success is assured.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Stay cool when others
around you are losing it.
Pace yourself and move for-
ward toward your daily,
weekly, monthly, quarterly or
yearly goals. Without a posi-
tive goal, it's easy to get stuck
or sidetracked on unimpor-
tant things that offer no
reward for the time, effort or
energy expended. Your suc-i
cess depends on it.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
This is your time of the year.
The spring is when you come
alive. You are in your ele-
ment and very protected. It's
time to create new visions
and ideas and set them into
motion. Release old, outdat-
ed things from your life.
Make firm plans for the next
12 months. You have started
your new year with a bang.
Now, keep it going.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
See, it's working. Being open
with your feelings and speak-
,ing from your heart has
earned the respect and
cooperation from those cl6s-
est to you. Now that you are
feeling more support and
security, it is time to make'
new.plans. You don't have t6l
do all the work anymore. It is
time to ask for help and give
others a chance to help cre-
ate the fun.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
All the hard work is paying
off. Your aggressive work
ethic is an inspiration to
everyone around you. You
are a tireless worker for the
visions and causes that live
in your spirit. You care about
family, friends and associ-
ates. You can always be
counted on to come through
when the chips are down.
Great job, Leo.

Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
One of your main challenges
is to find ways to maintain
good health and balance in
your active life. You must do
things every day to maintain
this balance. It starts by tak-

There is just no way to
scream at you loud enough
to get your attention and
hope you do this.

heartedness," she said. "We
want it to be something he'd
have enjoyed seeing or pre-
senting to the people of Mar-
tin County.
i "Bob Berky is a long-time
friend of Phil's. He's a comic,
mime and juggler who has
performed with symphonies,
including at Lincoln Center.
That's why we decided to use
him in collaboration with the
string ensemble. It's a nice
pairing of music and come-
dy."
Mr. Berkywill spend several
days before and after the
event at area schools, includ-
ing South Fork and Jensen
Beach high schools and the
Pine School.
Ms. Whitmer hopes that
having an artist "in residence"
for a week will become an
annual event, and hopes that
more artists can be brought to
Stuart throughout the year.
She adds that donations to
the Library Foundation for
that purpose are welcome.
"To honor Phil's legacy, we
have to honor him in a way
that reminds us of him," she
said. "Its my hope that people
will enjoy it and their hearts
will be lifted enough for it to
be an annual event to have an
artist-in-residence for a
week."

renovations are complete at

DINING & ENTERTAINMENT


Hold off on adding more salt to stay healthier


Hello smart shoppers.
First, a request from
Contfie regarding a
pizza with bottom andtop
crust her grandmother made
filled with anchovies, olives
and escarole sauteed in.olive
oil.


Let's learn some interest-
ing facts. We have talked
about sugar and sugar
substitutes and we know we
are addicted. Most of us are
told to cut the salt (sodium)
but if you think passing up
the salt at the table is the


answer, think again.
SProcessed foods and pre-
packaged dinners have an
astronomical amount of salt
added. If we ever added that
much to a home-cooked
dinner it would be inedible; I
can't figure that out.
SVegetables, whether
canned or frozen; have salt
added. Even canned fruits
have added salt. Chickenhas
salt added, just read the
label.
While looking through my
recipes I realized I am guilty
of not paying attention.
Unless you buy canned
products with no salt added,
they have salt, and yet in
every recipe, including mine,
the ingredients say add salt.
With canned tomato
sauces, all kinds have salt
added, yet you're told to add
salt I recently made spaghet-
ti sauce and after realizing it,
SIdidn't add salt, it was
delicious.
'Ity to buy canned foods


with no salt added. Raw
chicken contains salt; it's a
great preservative. Try to buy
canned foods with no salt
added.
More information: When a
recipe instructs you to drain
a canned vegetable it means
exactly that, drain! Open the
can then press the lid down
into the can as you're
draining as much liquid as
possible. If the end result is
squashed veggies, drain in a
strainer.
When cooking fresh
veggies, don't drown them in
water, but steam or cook in
as little water as possible.
A colander fitted into a pot
works great for steaming, but
remember, the water must
not touch the veggies when
it's boiling. The steam is what
cooks them. The less water
you use, the more nutrients
stay in the vegetable.
. In this week's column I'
have a change in an old
.recipe and a new twist on


WA W


another. I recently had a corn
bread casserole cooked in
cupcake liners. What a great
way to serve a vegetable.
Enjoy. See you next week.

The sugar has been
reduced from 1/2-cup to 2
tablespoons. Try omitting
the salt if there is salt in the.

.DAN'S L Ownedand Operted Check your equipment before



S f .getting back into the swing


Many Florida golfers
take the winter off.
Between crowded
tee sheets and higher prices,
many of us choose to let our
games hibernate.
By now, some of you are
dusting off your clubs in
anticipation of that first
round since late last year. If
you plan to play your best
golf this spring and sum-
mer, it's important that your
equipment be up to the
task.
You need to take a good
look at your clubs. Examine
the heads, grips and shafts.
Most importantly, make
sure that they are as ready
to play as you are.
Start with your grips.
Grips are probably the.
most overlooked part of a
club. Since the grip is the
only place that you actually
contact the club, your grips
must be in good shape for


you to maintain control and.
hit good shots.
If your grips are simply
Dirty, wash them off. It's a
good idea to wash your
grips every couple of weeks
in soap and water. Between
the dirt and oil on your
hands and the dirt and dust
that settle into your golf
bag, you'd be surprised how
much crud you need to
remove.
If your grips are hard or
show.wear in spots from
where you hold the club,
then it's time for replace-
ments. When you replace
your grips, take a look at
your hand size in relation-
ship to the grip size. Proper-
ly-sized grips are an easy,
change to make and one
that will make you a more
consistent player.
Larger grips take your
wrists out of your swing and
may help if you're hitting an
ugly hook. Smaller grips will
help promote a release and
get rid of a push or fade:
Think about making sure
that all of your grips, except.
for your putter, are the
same. This is one way to
allow your hands to have
the same feel with every
club in the bag.
The shafts re next.
Check for rust. Surface
rust can be removed with
WD-40 or a No. 2 pencil. If
the rust returns, it's time to
replace the shaft before it
fails. A more serious shaft
problem would be a dent or


ding in a steel shaft. These
make the shaft weak and
inconsistent, and should be
replaced to avoid snapping
it during a swing.
Make sure that none of
your shafts are loose. To test
your shafts, grab onto the
head with one hand and the
grip with the other and
twist. Any movement or
squeaks indicate a loose
head. Shafts can become
loose through normal play,
especially if you store your,
clubs in your car. Extreme
heat or cold can cause the
epoxy to break down. ;
You want all of your shafts !
to have a similar flex. If all of
your irons' shafts don't
match, the playability of :
one club to the next could
be compromised. :
With graphite shafts,
check to make sure the
shafts aren't wearing where
they touch the top of your;,
golf bag. Overtime, many
graphite shafts will have a,;;,
worn patch from rubbing ,,
against the bag. A good .,
solution is using covers thai
protect that area or a bag ,,
designed to protect graphite
shafts.
How do the clubheads
look? Clean out the grooves ,,
with a brush. The buildup df
dirt in the grooves prevents'r
the club from imparting tlg 4
proper spin on the ball. A '!'i
ball with little orno spin !
acts like a knuckle ball in
the air and doesn't pene- "
trate the wind or fly very fd.
Lastly, check the loft and'')
lie. Clubs can get out of leib'
alignment through normal' 'r-
*play. A two-degree changed's
in loft can mean as much as
10 yards in distance. A

Softball star gets chance to shine


By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST: LUCIE It'
not surprising that St.
Lucie West Centennial's
Rachael Appell wants to be
a paramedic, considering
the way she's helped to
breathe new life into the
Eagles' softball program.
"She has been playing for
us for four years," head
coach Cheryl East said.
"Every year she's gotten
stronger mentally and
physically.
"She's grown so much."
Appell has played a big
role in the team's 18-5 start
to this season. She has
come on especially of late,
driving in both runs in
Ceotennial's recent 2-0 win
over Seminole Ridge. One
of those RBIs came via the
long ball, her second blast
in three games.
"She was struggling at
first, 'but now she's starting
to c6me around," East said.
"She has a .395 average."
Although Appell's first
home run came in a losing
effort against Sebastian
River a few days earlier, it
sh&vs the senior's extra
work has been paying off.
Vve been working a lot
with our athletic director,
John Messina," Appell said..
"Ijgs been working with
me,,every day on my hit-
tin This year I'm a com-
pletely different hitter. I'm
more confident.
"I'm putting it all togeth-
er."
The same can be said for
Centennial. Heading into
district playoffs next week,
thehEagles have a strong
chance to walk away with a

title, considering the sea-
son they have had so far.
While 18 wins is'impressive
in its own right, the team's
mark could be even better
since four of their five loss-
es have.been by one run,
"We're doing really well,"
Appell said. "We keep get-
ting better.
"If we put it all together,
we'll be unstoppable."
Appell said one of the
keys to the team's success
has been the relationship
'between the veterans and
the rookies.
"The seniors help the
underclassmen, but 'it's a
back-and-forth .thing,"
Appell said. "Yoq can leajn

something from the
younger kids too."
Appell is well aware of
the plight of the newcom-
ers, having been on varsity
since her freshman year.
"I was so nervous,"
Appell said. "I knew that I
had to prove myself to
keep my spot."
The 17-year old did so
and more, showing her
versatility in 'te field.
"My freshman year I
played left field," Appell,
said. "Each year I've been
in a different position.
"Wherever I went, I was
happy."
