City moves ahead with drainage project


By Jay Meisel
meisel@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST. LUCIE Port St. Lucie
will begin efforts to buy 35 to 40 acres
of land near Lennard Road as part of
a massive project to prevent or
reduce flooding on the city's east
side.
Earlier this month, the City Council
authorized city manager Don Cooper
to being negotiating to buy the land.
The land would be used for reten-
tion ponds for water that otherwise
would flood streets and yards during
major storms.
Port St. Lucie Mayor Patricia Chris-
tensen said the city can't go forward
with construction unless it can buy
the required land for the ponds.


But, she said, she's optimistic Mr.
Cooper will be successful in buying
the land.
Vice Mayor Jack Kelly, who repre-
sents the area, said he's also opti-
mistic.
"We're not going to get land any
cheaper than we can get it for now,"
he said. "People are motivated to
sell."
The city plans to raise the storm
water drainage fee to fund the $20 to
$24 million project, he said, but the
amount of the increase won't be
determined until the final cost figure
is known, he added.
The drainage plan is in response to
flooding frdm Tropical Storm Fay in
2008.
The city held a public hearing last

the top history fair projects
in the state this year, three
Lincoln Park Academy
freshmen, learned, that
Hillary Clinton wasn't the
only former first lady to
have *a role beyond being
the'wife of a president.
Eleanor Roose\ell, the
wife of President Franklin
Roosevelt, broke the mold
of first ladies who spent a
lot of time "in their sitting
rooms looking pretty," said
MAllyson Marks, 15, of Fort
Pierce.
The students chose to
focus on Mrs. Roosevelt
i after looking for someone
who was selfless and had
made an important contri-
bution to society, she said.
"Eleanor Roosevelt, was
one of those people,"
Allyson said.

Getting


the word


out

By Sarah Stover Jacobs
For Hometown News

When schools need to alert
students about something,
they use the public address
system.
When cities, counties or
other agencies want to alert
residents, they use radio and
television.
Now the\ can also use the
telephone.. .
Cities and corporations
have already started using a
new service offered by a Flori-
da company that allows mes-
sages 10o be sent to cell phones
or land lines simultaneously.
Hometown News has used
" it to help with circulation ver-
ification. : ..
BirthCall is the latest offer-
ing under the parent compa-
ny GlobalCall Enterprises,
run bt Naples resident Shawn
SVeme.
The company offers vari-
ous adaptations of a call sys-
rem thai generates multiple
simultaneous calls from a list.
tirthCall allows new par-
ents to record a message
shortly after.a baby is bom to
let everyone know the good
news.
The BirthCall package,
which is $14.95, includes a
call list for up to 50 people in
the U.S. and Canada. More
can be added for a small fee.
When it is' time for the
birth, all parents have to do is
dial in, type in their user iden-
tification information and the
message goes out.
The package includes caller
ID, so recipients know who
the call is coming from, and it
will leave a message onvoice-
mail or message machine if
they do not pick up.
Mr. Veme spent the past
two years developing the
concept and this past year,
put into use.
As his other services gained
popularity, Mr. Veme was
asked about an option for
birth announcements. He has
three boys himself and knows
how hectic it can be.
"Its a mania-like situation
having a kid," he said.
Although the service was
not available when she had
her baby, new mother Erica
King would have "somewhat
taken advantage of it," she
said.
Ms. King is the receptionist
in Hometown News' Fort
Pierce office.
"It would've been helpful,
but I was really sick in the
hospital (from the anesthe-

sia), so I don't think it
would've have mattered
because I couldn't speak to
anyone anyway. If I had (had)
a natural birth that would've
been good," said Ms. King.
Area hospitals contacted for
comment were not familiar
with the product yet. Martin
Memorial Health Systems was
unable to comment "...as we
don't generally make product
endorsements," wrote Scott
Samples, public information
coordinator for MMHS.
Indian River Medical Cen-
ter could not really make a
comment either, as they have
not been given a presentation
or used the system, but "over-
all, we think it's an interesting
concept," said spokeswoman
BetsyWhisman.,
Companies that have seen
presentation or are familiar
with it are enthusiastic.
"It's been pretty receptive so
far by companies we've con-
tacted," said Mr. Verne.
In fact, BirthCall already has
a working relationship with a
company that prints birth
announcements and that
company, as well as others,
have suggested Mr. Verne

announcements as well as job
promotions or moves, which
might be offered in the near
future, Mr. Verne said..
For now, parents-to-be can
sign-up for BirthCall or it can
be purchased as a gift.
Users do not have to worry
about clogging up phone
lines, since the system is
designed to do massive
announcements. It can literal-
ly do over 7 million calls and is
very scalable, such as Google,
said Mr. Verne.
As high tech as the actual
system may be, the services
are not. There is no hardware
or software to buy or install.


"It's easy to use. If you can
dial a phone, you can do it,"
said Mr. Verne.
While the company contin-
ues to expand its services, Mr.
Verne will continue working
on the patent process. The
technology was just approved
for a U.S. and international
patent, he said.

Other
calling


functions

available

In addition to Birth-
call, some of the other
services offered by
GlobalCall Enterprises
run by Naples resident
Shawn Verne are as fol-
lows:
1* MyPatientCall,
which lets doctors'
offices remind patients
Sof appointments.
SAndrew Ress, a plastic
surgeon in Boca Raton,
has praise for .MyPa-
tientCall. His office has
used the program for
about six weeks, and
while they are still get-
ting used to it, Dr. Ress
and' his staff have
already heard positive
feedback from patients,
he said.
"So far the response
from patients has been
very good. It's not robot-
ic or instrusive, it's my
voice. So many of these
types of things are
obnoxious, (but) this
isn't. It's easy to use," i
said Dr! Ress.
MyCustomerCall,
which allows retailers to
remind a customers
about events or special i
offers.
MyFanCall, which is
used by entertainers to
send messages to their
fans.
Country singer Amber
Leigh, the first enter-
tainer to sign oup for
MyFanCall, uses (561)
111-1111 as her caller
[D, so her fans all know
the number, wrote Mr. -
Veme in an e-mail.
GlobalCall,, also -has
contracts with cities.
For instance, the city

ation department uses

know about game can-
celladons or changes.
It has also been used
by Hometown News to
notify newspaper carri-
ers all, at once when
papers were in, rather
than spending time
making numerous calls.
The phone messaging
service was started as a
way to spread the word
quickly in emergency
situations, such as Sept.
11, said Mr.Verne.
Cities have already
found the service useful
in emergency scenanos,
even though it has; only
been around about a
year.
Key 4 West's Police
Department decided to
try it and found it effec-
dive when Hurricane Ike
threatened the area last
September.
David Smith of the
professional standards
division of the Key West
Police Depaitment was
impressed with the
service and penned dris
letter to Mr. Vee.
After the storm ,
passed, the. police
department held a
debriefing session to
evaluate our perform-
ance during it. The most
resounding comment
was regarding the emer-
gency notification call
system," Mr. Smith
wrote.
"The EOC command-
er for the City of Key
West, the City Manager,
Chief of Police and all of
the personnel I spoke
with thought the system
was extremely useful
and informative...In our
discussions, it is clear
this system is a valuable
tool in mass communi-
.cation and can be used
for a variety of incidents,
to include those that are
Weather related," he
wrote.

From page Al
Park students will have the
opportunity to compete at
the national history fair on
June 14 in Washington, D.C.
Selecting a subject and
keeping the presentation
under 10 minutes were two
of the main challenges, the
students said.
Once they chose Mrs.
Roosevelt, who died in 1962,
the students conducted
hours of research, Garrett
said.
They then wrote a script
for a short play, one that was
changed several times.
The students ended up
with a play that included
several scenes depicting dif-
ferent events in the life of
Mrs. Roosevelt, he said.
At times, Garrett and Kelly
would portray narrators
transitioning the audience
from one event to the other.

project.
"It's a good project for the
kids," Mr. Crumbo said,
adding that it gives them
real experience. ,
Acension Gonzalez, a stu-
dent, was the principal
designer for the bunk beds,
he said.
Kenny. Burris, another
student, said he doesn't plan
to become a carpenter.
Instead, he wants to be an
engineer.
But he, still enjoyed the
project, he said.
"I just like helping them,"
he said.
The bunk beds will be
part of the 27,282-square-
foot Douglas M. Anderson
Emergency Operations
Center. The building, is.
named after a former coun-
ty administrator.
Located at the St. Lucie
County Fairgrounds on
Midway Road, the center
will be about four times
larger than the existing one
on Rock Road.


They also acted as other
characters and as interview-
ers of Mrs. Roosevelt, who
was portrayed byAllyson.
The scenes included one
where Mrs. Roosevelt
became the first First Lady
to testify before a Congres-
sional committee, Allyson
said. Mrs. Roosevelt spoke
about nursing homes, say-
ing that many "were a dis-
grace" at the time, she
added.
Another scene, she said,
was when Mrs. Roosevelt
resigned as a member of the
Daughters of the American
Revolution after the organi-
zation refused to allow Mar-
ian Anderson, who .was
black; to sing at Constitu-
tion Hall, she said.
Kelly said she was
impressed with Mrs. Roo-
sevelt' and "everything that,
she accomplished."
"It wasn't normal for a first
lady to be that active," she
said. "..


The entire project is esti-
mated to cost $12.7 million,
with 80 percent of the
money, coming from ,state
and federal grants and
insurance reimbursement
dollars, said Eric Gill, public
information officer for St.
Lucie County.
The building 'will house
the county's public safety
staff, including animal con-
trol, 911, radiological and
marine.,
Mr. Gill said the addition
of the bunk beds and adja-
cent shower rooms will be a
welcome relief, should
emergency workers have to
staff the facility during a
hurricane.
"We had nowhere to sleep
but our desks," Mr. Gill said,
recalling his experience
during the 2004 hurricanes.
The center also will have
a dedicated pressroom for
briefings. At the existing
center, press conferences
were essentially held in a
hallway.
A ribbon-cutting event
for the center is scheduled
for Friday,, June,10, at ,0.
a.m.

PEARLS
The largest and rarest of.all
pearl oysters, and the one
that produces the finest
pearl nacre, is the South
Sea pearl oyster-the
PINCTADA maxima which
is only found in one isolated
region between North
Australia and Burma. Due
to pollution and .over
exploitation, there remain
Very few significant wild
oyster beds and theses are
today protected. through
diving quotas by the
Australian Government.
Each oyster must be indi-i
vidually hand collected by
divers in deep water, or
alternatively may be grown,
although with great difficul-
ty, in hatcheries and 'then
returned to the wild for a
number of years, in order to
allow them to grow into
adult oysters. These oys-
ters ,have great value for
their mother-of-pearl inlay,
trade as well as for the finer
pearls they produce. The
quality of South-Sea cul-
tured pearls is assessed by
five characteristics. These
are luster, complexion,
shape, size and color.
Every pearl is sorted and
graded according to these
virtues, yet when selecting
pearls, it must be remem-
bered that beauty is ulti-
mately in the eye of the.

Community aims to be flood-free

To the editor:

When Tropical Storm Fay hit last summer, John Imperato,
district manager of St. Lucie West Service District, found
himself trapped in his home.
"I could not leave because of the flooding on my street,"
he said. "I soon discovered that so many other people in St.
LucieWest were trapped in their homes too."
In some cases, they we're trapped for as much as four
days
The flooding in some areas prevented emergency vehicles
and police cars from getting through.
Water levels in certain areas, were so high, that vehicles
created wakes which pushed water irito homes and com-
mercial buildings.
This event propelled Mr. Imperato and his staff to develop
an 18-month, $1.5 million project that would improve the:
storm water outflow structures through reconfiguration
and reconstruction of nine gates.
The team worked with the engineers at Arcadis Engineer-
ing and the South Florida Water Management District,
along with the city and county. Now, they wait for precious
funding from the FEMA hazard mitigation grant.
In 2003. the U.S. Census Bureau called St. Lucie West the
fastest growing master-planned community in the country.
Today, it's a bustling town that's become an integral part
of the city of Port St. Lucie, within St. Lucie County;
With more than 6,500 homes and 450 business establish
ments, an estimated 20,000 people live pr work within the
St. Lucie West boundaries.
Shopping malls, restaurants, medical facilities, stadiums
and entertainment complexes have sprouted. The county's
school bus compound and a U.S. post office are also located
in the area.
In the late 1980s, the St. Lucie West Service District %\as
established under the Florida Statutes Chapter 190.
Its public works department maintains the primary stoi m
water management system, as well as surface water man-
agement and wetland maintenance. The utility department
distributes potable water and treats wastewater for reuse in
the irrigation system.
As with any urban growth, come major challenges.
"We've got two," says Mr. Imperato. "During the rain\
season, there's flooding. In the dry season, there's the lack
of enough water to provide adequate irrigation ser-ices."
The five- member board of supervisors approved plans for
SLWSD to go after FEMA flood mitigation grants and federal
stimulus program opportunities.
"I'm delighted with the district's professional staff, their
diligence and perseverance," said Harvey Cu der, the board's
chairman.
. "We arefirmly committed to addressing these problems."
,maid MNr. Imperato.
Together, with the support of homeowner associations
and businesses in the community, SLWSD is working dili-
gently toward preventing another no-wake zone event in Sti
S'Lucie West .

(772) 465-5504
or e-mail news@hohnetownnev'sol.com.
Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous
statements. Statements offact will be checked for
accuracy.

Editor's note: These are in response to -the rant "Illegal
aliens at school," printed May, 15.
Don't judge a student by skin color

Tothe"Illegal Aliens at School" ranter, did y.ou ask them if
they are illegal? Or is it because they have brown skin, o
they must be? Have you not heard of green cards? As far as
closing the borders, sour ex-president turned a blind eyefor
eight years, so corporate farms and ranches had cheap,
labor Don't blame the new guy, he's trying to clean up all the
mess left by the previous incompetents.

More about illegal students

I would like to tell the person thal wrote about the illegal:
aliens in schools: what are the so upset about? If the bor-
ders were closed, their great-great grandparents wouldn't
have been allowed to get into thds country. bYou should have
been with those children who drowned in the water today.
Every child deserves a chance. .
Place blame on right person

We are in deficit due to billions for an illegal war,.and the
deregulation of the financial industry started by Reagan
and finished by Bush. Maybe the finger should be pointed at


the real culprits, the GOP in power in Washington, D.C., not
the current president who's dealing with the garbage that
was left b them forhim.

Too many lawsuits

A man goes into a bar, gets intoxicated, leaves and drives
his Jeep Wrangler off the road and the crash kills him. Need
proof that'we have too many lawsuits? Some unscrupulous
lawyers, denying the man was at fault, have filed a wrongful
death lawsuit against the owners of the property where the
accident occurred, which is quite unbelievable, because the
toxicol)gy report indicates the man's blood was nearly three
times over the legal limit for intoxication.
Questioning rants

Here are two questions about recent Rants and Raves:
"What are teachers teaching:" Where can I find the. direct
quote from National Bureau of Economic Research? I have
searched, but do not know the exact title of the paper the
writer was referring to.
And illegal aliens running around at school? How did the
writer know that the children running around were illegal?
While brevity is- important, solrces and confirmation is
more important.
Editor's note: This is in, response to "What are teachers
reaching?"printed Alay 8,2009. The u'riterdidn't give the spe-
cific name of the paper, and there are literally hundreds of
papers on the National-Economic Bureau's Web site dealing
with education issues. Nor did he or she provide us 'with
information regarding the citizenship status of the students
in question. Hometown News didn't edit the rant for space.
Perhaps the original author will provide the details in ques-
tion ; '. '

Give credit when credit's due

When good people do good things, there is all too often
very little recognition for their efforts. When things go
wrong, tolks seem to love to comment about how the world
is so bad. This leads us to the magnificent achievements, by

Ways to prepare your kids for hurricane season


It's hard to believe that wee
are talking about hurri-
canes again!
While we have had some
calm seasons, we have all
learned that we need to
prepare our homes and take
responsibility for ensuring
we have supplies to get us
through. at the very least, a
few days without power.-
There are many\ free
guides for hurricane
preparedness available,
including the one Home-
town News produces for the
American Red Cross, so I
thought I would focus on
kids and how hurricanes and
other disasters affect them.
After Hurricane Katrina,
we were all shocked to'
discover how vulnerable
children are in a disaster,
both physically and emo-
tionally. We were dismayed
at pictures of parents
frantically searching for
children from whom they
were separated.
Now is a good time to sew
name tapes in the clothing of
young children, including
the name and number of a
contact person outside of
the area, so if phone service
is disrupted, a family
member or friend can take
the call and know the child is
; safe.
Michael Haney, division
director for prevention and"
intervention in the Florida
Departrnentol l-lalthl, ofl'cts
suggestions for creating a
family disaster plan and


ALIVE
& WELL
SHELLEY KOPPEL


handling the stress a disaster
such as a hurricane places
on families and children.
Children fear that they will
be separated from their
family or left alone o0 that
someone will be hurt or
injured. TrN to allay tears
while remaining realistic.
"You can never fully
prepare for a natural disaster
and you don't want to instill
a heightened sense of'
anxiety," said Dr. Haney,
"The key is good commu-
nication with your kids. If
you see something on the
news, talk with them about
how they feel and how they,
think others are feeling. Talk
about what you would do if
something happened in
your community and
reassure them that you will
do everything you can to
keep them safe."
The Department of Health
recommends assembling a
kit to pass the time, whether
you evacuate your home or
remain. It could include:
*A few favorite books, ,
crayons and paper.
*Puzzles, a board game, a
deck of cards.
*Two favorite small toys,
dolls or action figures or
stuffed animals.


*A favorite blanket and
pillow.
*Photos of family and pets.
*Other special items that
will be a comfort.
Both the DOH and the
'Florida Institute for Famild
Involvement, which helps
families with special needs
children, suggest keeping all
of a child's important
information together.
including a photo, birth
certificate, medical and
immunization record, list of.
medications and contact
information.
Perhaps this is something
you and your children can .
do together, making a
booklet for each child that
they can decorate and
personalize. Store each one
in awater-proof, zip-locked
bag, and put it with your
hurricane kit so you won't
forget to take it. If your child
takes medication, make sure
you have at least several
weeks of medicine.
SIt is also a good idea to
limit access to television if
there is bad news being
replayed again and again.
This is true for all sorts of
news and not just hurri-
canes. So much of the news
is bad; try to limit viewing,
especially for younger
children.
If children or teens see
scenes of death and devasta-
tion, talk to them in an age-
appropriate manner and,
watch for symptoms of
depression, such as sleep


disturbance, lack of interest
: in activities or substance
abuse. ,
For school-age children
and teens, suggest some-
thing they can do to help,
such as having a lemonade
stand or a car wash to raise
money for kids in need..
Now is.also a good time to
watch for sales on canned
and packaged goods such as
tuna, vegetables, breakfast
bars and evaporated milk or
long-life milk, such as
Parmalat. Buying little at a
time, on sale, will help your
budget and help you stay out
of long lines.
If you have an infant or
young child, check with your
doctor before a change of
diet. When you finish a .
container or soda or juice,
rinse it out well and fill it
with water. Even if you don't
use it for drinking, have
supplies for personal'
hygiene and cleaning.
For more information
about hurricane prepared-
ness, visit the Web site of the
Department ofHealth at
www.doh.state.fl.us.
Let's hope we don't need to
use the information in the
near future, but let's be
prepared.

SLucie Civic Center.
The event acknowledged
all volunteers and organiza-
ti dons who contributed to this
year's annual fundraising
campaign.
"Everyone in this room has
contributed greatly to creat-
ing a brighter future for all in
St. Lucie County," said Terri
Sloan-Bartz, vice president
of Seacoast National Bank
and this year's campaign


chairman.
"I know that your contin-
ued work and passion to
make a difference will inspire
others in the community to
join our efforts during next
year's campaign," he said.
Mr. Sloan-Bartz later
announced the projected
campaign total for this year
is $1.38 million.
The luncheon recognized
the top fundraising compa-
nies, as well as volunteers,
who helped coordinate the
, campaigns.
Live United awards were
given to companies and indi-
viduals in the community
who were dedicated to giv-
ing, advocating and volun-
teering during this year's
campaign.


Circle of Honor awards,
the highest achievement
United Way can bestow on
an organization, were pre-
sented to companies based
on total contributions, quali-
ty of the campaign, employ-
ee support, percent of partic-
ipation and non-financial

Special guest speaker, Tri-
cia lenkidns of the Boys & Girls

addressed anttendees to urge
them to continue giving
through the Give $5 cam-
paign, which urges people to
give just $5 and ask five other
people to give $5 to United
Way.
"In this time of economic
uncertainty, a small contri-
bution of $5. put with every-
one else's adds up to a huge
difference in people's lives,"
said Ms. Jenkins.
"We have to continue to
come together to advance
the common good in St.
Lucie County," she said.

Compute
From page A6
computer for pictures,
listing the folder that they
are stored in and the
showing actual pictures in
thumbnail form.
I found pictures on my
hard drive that were so
buried I forgot I even had
them!
What I like about Picasa is
the way it searches your
entire system for images,.
and.then organizes them
into one screen. It doesn't
move files around (unless
you manually drag and drop
images from folder to folder
from within the program),
but it does show everything
at-a-glance, sorted by most
recent at the top of the list.
This is a great tool for
finding lost pictures on your
machine and gives you a lot
more.power than the built-
in Windows view options.
OK, so the program is
great for consolidating your
digital images into one
screen, but whaf-else is it
good for? This may seem like
.overkill if you have managed
to keep all your digital
images in one place (such as
your pictures folder), but is
the program good for
anything else?
Well, the answer to that is
an enthusiastic yes.
Picasa allows you to do
some basic editing of your
pictures without having to
launch another program.
Double click on one of the
thumbnail images, and the
picture loads into Picasa's
editing screen.
Now, remember, I said
this was a "basic" photo
editor. You won't be able to
do some of the advanced
stuff that a more in-depth
editor, such as PhotoShop or
Paint Shop Pro will let you
do, but it's a start..
Picasa will let you "clean .
up" a picture in the most
ordinary ways with just a
click of a button.
It will let you remove that
evil "red eye" you get from


flash photography, straight-
en pictures and brighten
dark images. It lets the
computer take its best shot
at automatically cleaning up
a photo, according to how it
thinks the picture should
look.
Just click the "I'm feeling
lucky" button, and the
program will adjust the
picture for the best opti-
mization. It usually does a
pretty good job.
Not happy with the
results? No problem. Click
the "undo" button, and the
picture reverts back to the
way it was before.
Picasa also makes print-
ing a breeze, allowing you to
print multiple sizes (up to
1,000 percent of the original,
spanned over several pages),
collages and proof sheets
(hard copies of your thumb-
nail images).
The program will also
allow you to e-mail images
properly with just the click
of a button. It re-sizes the
picture and optimizes it for
e-mail and sends it in a
universal format (.jpg).
This eliminates the
frustration you can run into
using other programs that
send to e-mail in a propri-
etary format or send the
pictures overly large.
But that's not all it does.
Picasa will also let you
organize your photos into
any sequence you like, and
create screen savers, photo
CDs, special slide shows and
more.
To get a full idea of just
how Picasa can help you
manage your digital pic-
tures, go to the Web site,
http://picasa.google.com,
and click the "take a tour of
Picasa" link near the bottom
of the page; you may be
surprised at just how
powerful this program
actually is. And free, too.
Thanks, Google!

blood drive to help toddler


For Hometown News
News@hometownriewsol.com
ST. LUCIE COUNTY -
Two-year old Gibbs Antoine
is suffering from a brain
tumor that requires regular
blood transfusions to keep
him alive.
On June 3, the Van Duzer
Foundation will partner
with Riverside National
Bank to host a daylong
blood drive at Big Apple
Pizza and Pasta at 2311 S.
35th St., Fort Pierce.
Representatives from
Florida's Blood Centers and
mobile bloodmobiles will be
present to accept blood
donations on behalf of
Gibbs, and, from 4 p.m. to
closing, proceeds from all
sales at Big Apple Pizza and
Pasta will be donated to the
Antoine family.
Each blood donation,
which typically takes 30
minutes, helps save the lives
of three people.
Gibbs' father, Josenel, has
worked for many years for
Florida's Blood Centers,
helping to ensure a safe and
adequate blood supply for
other people's children.
Now, the father of five is
faced with caring for a criti-
cally-ill child, being the only
breadwinner in the large,
young family and trying to


maintain a sense of normal-
cy for the rest of the Antoine
family.
Pending approval from
Medicaid, Gibbs, who has
been battling the malignant
brain tUmor for the past
year, is expected to travel to
Duke University Hospital in
North Carolina this summer
for further treatment.
Meanwhile, Gibbs is in
and out of the hospital for
treatments to fight his dis-
ease.
Scott Van Duzer, founder
of the Van Duzer Founda-
tion and owner of Big Apple
Pizza and Pasta in Fort
. Pierce, hopes the communi-
ty will respond in great
numbers and rally behind
this family in need.
"We are always amazed
and touched by the tremen-
dous outpouring of support
and generosity' from the
community whenever we
present a need," said Mr.
Van Duzer.
"This is a really tough
time for the Antoine family
and we are so hoping that
our combined efforts as
friends and neighbors in the
community will be able to
help them out," he said.

tion.org.

The angels would be proud


BEEPER DEPOT,
Authorized Dealer ,


'A lI ancient manuscripts
give recognition to the
J. iUmportance of the
,,basic law of survival of the
soul: be fruitful and multi-
ply.
Everything created in
physical form starts with a
seed. This is true of a human
child, a flower in the garden,.
events or things we wish to
create in our lives that bring
joy and fulfillment.'
The happiest people are
,those who are passionate
and have a burning desire,
cause and deeper purpose
guiding their lives. At this
time in human evolution,
maybe 5 or 10 percent of
people have found the true
purpose they were born to
fulfill.
An old story says that
when human life was
created, the guardian angels
were debating where to
place the soul. One angel
said, "Let's place it on the.,
highest mountain."
The others said, "No.
Humans are basically good,
but because of their greed,
will find it and destroy it."
Another angel said, "Let's
place it in the middle of the
largest desert."
The others said, "No, that
won't work either. They will
eventually find it and
destroy it." ,
A third angel said, "Let's
place it in the middle of the
%.deepest, widest sea." '
The others said, "No, that.
won't work either. They will
eventually find it there, too,
and destroy it.". ,
The fourth angel said, "I
know the perfect spot. Let's .
.place it deep within the soul
of man himself. That's the
last place he will ever think
to look."'
S All the other angels
agreed. And so it is.
Life in all its form consists
"of three key elements: spirit,
soil and seed.

call it. It is the life force that
is eternal and constantly
'going through the circles of
birth, rebirth and transfor-
mation.
. The second element is the
soil, womb or soul. All of
these could be called the
growing medium. The soil is
the medium for vegetation.
The womb is the medium
for human and most forms
of animal life, taking into
consideration that birds,
reptiles and other forms of
life are created from eggs or
ova.
Then there is the soul.
This is the source of the
deeper mysteries that we
struggle trying to under-
stand in our journey
through life.
Life is sacred and valuable
in all its forms. Self-reliance
and a deeper understanding
of the mysteries should be
the No. I priority in everNy
human life on earth. The
real hunger we feel inside
will never be satisfied alone
with the pursuit of money,
power, fame or material
possessions.
The deepest hunger is to
find our true purpose, go
inside, turn our thoughts
and ideas into the seeds of
desire for inner happiness,
impress them on the
subconscious mind and
surrender them to spirit.
The supreme law of
creation., be fruitful and
multiply, hangs in the
balance.' '.
The happiestpeople are.
those who love to share their
lives and make others
happj, as well. It doesn't,..
matter your level of educa-
tion, experience or breed-
ing. True and lasting.


happiness comes from
creating joy, love and a sense
of hope and purpose.
All the money and
personal possessions in the
world will not make us truly
happy without-becoming
fruitful and sharing happi-
ness with others.
You can do it. It's the great
secret living in your soul
since birth. Maybe the
angels knew the real truth
after all. It's time to go on the
real search for happiness.
This is the priceless treasure
living inside you this very
minute.
My greatest wish is that
you go on this most sacred
journey. Create hope with
positive thinking. Open the
fountain of love in your
great heart.,Keep on keeping,
on until you find the
supreme joy and bliss,.Then
bring it out and set it free.
Your life is now justified. You
have found your trie spirit
and are using it to multiply,
survive and thrive. The
angels would be proud.

TRAVEL



Tuck tips away for savvy, safer, easier travel


W A"th the ever-
I\ changing travel
V industry, there are
more tips from travelers all
over the world.
Some are things we would
never think of, but most are
common sense. Frequent
travelers thankfully share
their thoughts and ideas.
Here are some.oldies but
goodies and maybe some
you never thought of.

Checking through
security

Keep a plastic, zip-locked


bag filled with your basic
liquid toiletries. Shampoo,
conditioner, liquid soap,
lotions, hand sanitizer, etc.,
can be pre-packed for all of
you future flights. Using a
slightly larger bag helps
when you add your last-
minute liquids, such as
make-up, contact solutions
and medications. Carry
extra plastic bags with you.
Carry an empty water
bottle with you, and fill it
after you get through
security. Fill it at a.water
bubbler and bring it on
board with you.
Make sure you stay with:

your carry-on bag as it goes
through the scanner. Do not
allow it to go through until
you are ready to walk
through.
I cannot say this enough:
check in early for flights.
The lines get longer and
longer at the security
checks.
Use TSA-approved locks


on your luggage. If your
luggage is chosen to be
searched, they can open it
without breaking it. Great
hint: e-mail the combina-
tion to your e-mail account.
If you forget it, just pull up
your e-mail.

Keeping safe

Keep cash and valuables
on your persons. For
international travel, make
sure you have a color copy
of your passport, along with
your credit card information

If traveling with a com-
panion, each of you should
have a copy of the other's
information. This way, if
one has their stuff stolen,
then the other will have the
information.
Make sure you leave a
copy of your exact itinerary
with someone at home. Also
when traveling abroad,.be
sure to have all emergency
numbers with you, i.e., local
U.S. embassy, police, etc.,
along with your own
personal emergency
contacts in the event of an
emergency.
You may even want to
register with 'the State
Department online. In the
event of an emergency, they
,will help contact you if there
is a family emergency at
home or help your family
find you. They will not give
out information on your
whereabouts without your

lose any of them, you will
.have access in your Web-
.based e-mail account. You
can even e-mail it to a U.S.

make sure you keep the
credit.card telephone
numbers there as well. This
is a quick way to access the
information and make the
call to the credit card
company to cancel your

Purchase travel
insurance

Just make sure it covers
overseas emergencies. In an
emergency, you will be so
happy you have it.
'If you have an emergency,
make sure you keep all
receipts and diagnosis
information from the
treating physician, along
with all contact informa-
tion. Usually, travel insur-
ance companies have an
international contact
number.

Packing

There are so many great
tips out there and more
come in daily as people find
easier ways of packing.
Place belts around the
circumference of your
suitcase rather than curled
up.
Put small objects in shoes.
Roll clothes for easier
packing'and to help keep
wrinkles away.
Use plastic zip-lock bags
and separate underwear

from T-shirts. If your bag needs to be
searched, you don't have them all over the
place. Also, the bags can be used to
separate dirty from clean.
If you bring your own pillow and small
blanket, put them in a space-saver bag
that rolls up.
Pack some of your clothes in your
companion's bag, and some of theirs in
yours, If a bag gets lost, at least you will
both have something to wear.
Use a soft-sided, six-pack size cooler for
your toiletries. When you get to your warm
destination, empty it in your room and
use it for cold drinks.
Pack a small flashlight. Cruise cabins
and hotel rooms can be dark at night.
Hint: put batteries in backward until you
need the flashlight.
Put shoes in plastic bags. It keeps your
clothes smelling fresh.
If you're going on a cruise, pack a power
strip. There are very limited outlets in the


stateroom.


Keep healthy while traveling

Always carry disinfectant wipes, espe-
cially when traveling with children.
Wipe down the tray table before psing it.
If you get chilly when flying, bring a
small throw and pillow with you. The
airlines do not generally clean theirs
between flights (and they are no longer
free, if they are even available).
Wear closed shoes (with socks) and.keep
them on your feet.
Pack a first-aid kit and include
aspirin/Tylenol and cold remedies, in the
event you cannot acquire them where you
are going, not to mention the cost.
Before your trip,.eat plenty of vegetables
and fruit (the more raw the better).
And make sure you take your vitamins,
especially a dose of vitamin C.

technology to reduce its greenhouse gas
emissions by 35 percent from 2001 levels. At
considerable expense, the company has
increased energy efficiency in both transmis-
sion and distribution systems, and should be
applauded for this very significant achieve-
ment.
A view on immigrants
This about the people who died in the
ocean who were trying to get here from


another country. I'm tired of the media call-
ing the people on these boats migrants. They
are illegals who are trying to break into our
country illegally. Stop using these names like
migrants and undocumented workers. They
are 'illegal aliens. It means stop trying to
break into our country illegally.
Don't call the kettle black
I've heard a lot of people in this area com-
plaining about the illegal aliens taking our
jobs. If you're volunteering at any company
that has laid off Americans, aren't you doing
the same thing?

As you read the
information in the
Official Red Cross
Hometown News
Hurricane Guide,
pay close attention
to your evacuation
routes and Red
Cross shelters you
may need this
hurricane season.
Many of the Sara Ruwe
articles about
volunteers and our
response to disasters other than hurri-
canes will give you valuable insight into
the work of the American Red Cross. We
are here to provide disaster services,
health and safety training, and commu-
nications with our servicemen and
women throughout the year, 365- days,
24-hours-a-day.
But, we would not be able to do our job
without your valuable donation of time
and dollars. Frankly, many people are
still not aware that the American Red
Cross receives no federal, state or local
tax dollars.
That is why it is critically important
that each of you reading this publication'
ask yourself, "What have I done to help


the Red Cross help my community, my
friends and my neighbors?"
Helping the Red Cross can be as simple
as becoming a volunteer or as valuable as
becoming a donor. How you help is your
preference. We only ask that in these very
trying economic times that you help in
some way.
We also urge you to help yourself and
your family be better prepared for
hurricane season or any emergency by
following some very simple steps to be
Red Cross ready:
Make a kit. Purchase or make an emer-
gency-preparedness kit, with at least
three days' worth of essential items need-
ed by each household member. Essential
items include water (1 gallon per person,
per day), nonperishable food, a flash-
light, a battery- or crank-operated radio,
extra batteries, -a manual can opener,
cash and important medications. Store
items in sturdy, sealable, easy-to-carry
containers. Remember to check your kit
every six months and replace expired
items.
Make a plan. The American Red Cross
recommends creating and practicing an
evacuation and communications plan.

Bi-county Red Cross in desperate need of volunteers


to weather the upcoming hurricane season


By Sarah Stover Jacobs
For Hometown News
ST. LUCIE COUNTY When an
organization covers double sites, it
needs double the amount of help, and
that's the situation for the area's Ameri-
can Red Cross.
The North Treasure Coast chapter of
the Ainerican Red Cross serves St. Lucie
and Indian River counties, which have
an estimated population of 276,585 and
132,315 respectively, according to the
U.S. Census Bureau.
The chapter's Web sites states it has
250 volunteers, but in actuality, there
ate 274 on its register, said Sharon-
Rayner, director of emergency services
for the North Treasure Coast's chapter.
However, there are "never enough"
volunteers because "only about 25 per-
cent of (the 274 registered) respond on a
good day," she said in a phone inter-
view.
The organization depends heavily on
volunteers all year round, but all Florida
chapters especially need help for hurri-
cane season, which spans June through
November.


Those interested in volunteering
have a plethora of opportunities to
choose from, including working in shel-
ters, feeding people in areas affected by
the storms from a mobile food service,
performing damage assessments,
assisting with client services, staffing
emergency centers, fundraising and
handling public affairs.
In preparation for hurricane season,
the Red Cross focuses on finding volun-
teers who are willing to work in shelters.
. Each county covered by the Northern
Treasure Coast chapter has a different
number of shelters, since it fluctuates
year-to-year due to school maintenance
and other issues. Regardless, there are
between three .and seven shelters in
each county, said Ms. Rayner.
The amount of volunteers needed at a
shelter varies depending on its size, but
generally, a shelter crew "would be in
the neighborhood of 10 people. If the
shelter holds 500 or so, that number
would increase proportionately," she
said.
The Red Cross offers free training to

Red Cross national fund


helps local efforts


By Jay Meisel
meisel@hometownnewsol.com
Some people may have the mis-
perception that giving money to the
American Red Cross's national fund
won't benefit their local community.
But that couldn't be further from
the truth, said Sharon Rayner, direc-
tor of emergency services for the
North Treasure Coast Chapter of the
American Red Cross. '
Ms. Rayner said individual Red
Cross chapters need help in
responding to major disasters.
Money from the fund is used to
help local chapters any time a situa-
tion is declared.a national disaster,
she said.
The money also helps bring emer-
gency response vehicles and.
kitchens to disaster areas, she said.
During the hurricanes of 2004, she
said, the Red Cross served more
than 1 million meals.
"We could never have served more
than a million meals with our local
volunteers alone," Ms. Rayner said.


The national funds have been,
used to help people in a wide variety
of natural disasters, she said.
Those have included floods, tor-
nadoes and wildfires during the
recent months, she said.
The American Red Cross depends
on people to provide money, so the
organization can respond to nation-
al disasters, she said.
"Some people think we're funded
by the federal government, which
we're not," Ms. Rayner said.
The Red Cross receives all of its
funding from donations frori citi-
zens, she said.
And the need for such donations
has increased, Ms. Rayner said.
For the first time ever, she said,
the Red Cross this year took out
loans to support the national fund.
Taking out loans, she. indicated,
wasn't a favored choice by the Red
Cross, but a necessity one, so the
organization could carry out its mis-
sion to respond to national disas-

Red Cross: inform, then prepare


By Sarah Stover Jacobs
For Hometown News
ST. LUCIE COUNTY One of the
goals of the American Red Cross is to
educate the public on how to prepare
for any disaster; for the area chapter, this
means focusing on preparation for hur-
ricane season.
Hurricane season starts June 1 and
ends on Nov. 30, but staff and volunteers
of the North Treasure Coast chapter of
the American Red Cross work on edu-
cating residents all year long.
"Community disaster education is
necessary to assist with helping people
in times of disaster. Each one of us is
responsible and needs to be.responsible
for ourselves in times of disaster, espe-
cially in tough economic times, when
there are not enough volunteers :or
funds to take care of everyone at a
moment's notice. I can't, stress that
enough," said Sharon Rayner, director of
emergency services for the area chapter.
One way the Red Cross informs the
public about what they need to know is
through volunteers that serve as com-
munity disaster educators.
These volunteers, who serve the
North Treasure Coast chapter, make pre-
sentations at mobile home parks, senior
facilities and anywhere in St. Lucie and


Indian River counties in response to
requests. They also represent the organi-
zation at community events where it
makes sense for the chapter to partici-
pate, said Ms. Rayner in a phone inter-
view.
For instance, there was a Port St. Lucie
Hurricane Expo at the Port St. Lucie
Community Center on May 24.
While people can come to the St.
Lucie office of the Northern Treasure
Coast chapter and pick up free
brochures or call and request them, Ms.
'Rayner listed a few hurricane prepara-
tion pointers that everyone should
know.
Have at least 1 gallon of water per
person a day for a.length of five days,
stock up on food and, if they can
afford to do so, purchase a portable
generator.
If leaving your house,:remember to
secure it and take certain items with
them, such as medications and any
important papers. Contact relatives
or friends and let them know where
they are going.
"Basically, our education programs
and brochures teach people to create
their own evacuation plan," she said.
Also, tips and information pertaining

What does it mean to be a Red Cross
volunteer? Does it cost money to be
trained? Will I have to be on-call all
the time? Can I choose what I would
like to do? Are there any other oppor-
tunities besides disaster response?
The answers to these and many
more questions will be available at
volunteer fairs to be held in June.

Fire safety tips


Here are some. fire protection .tips
offered by the Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency and the Florida.
Department of Elder Affairs:
*Install smoke alarms outside bed
rboms and on every level of the
home.-
Test and maintain the alarms. Make
sure everyone can hear the alarms
from theirbedrooms. -
- Develop an escape plan with two
ways out of every room and prac
rice it.

to hurricane season can be used to be
prepared for any disaster .or other
events.
For instance, in regard to the recent
outbreak of swine flu, if people have
stocked up on food and water they do
not need to go out and expose them-
selves (to the disease)," added Ms. Rayn-
er.
However, despite their best efforts,
some residents still do not heed their
advice.
"One of the things that tells us people
aren't prepared is, before the winds die
down, they're calling- us to bring them
food and water," said Ms. Rayner,
adding people should always have
enough food and water to sustain them-


Volunteers
From page 6 -
those who register to volunteer. The
amount of training involved depends
on the area someone volunteers for, but
there are four core disaster classes that
every .volunteer has to take, said Ms.
Rayner.
The four classes include an introduc--
tion to the Red Cross, an introduction to
mass care, which covers providing shel-
ter care and feeding a large amount of
people, shelter operations and shelter
simulation, which puts volunteers in a
situation where they experience what it
would be like if they had to open a shel-
ter, she said.
Once volunteers are trained, they are
not required to take the courses again
each year. However, the courses do get
updated or rewritten and the organiza-
tion makes veteran volunteers aware in
case they wish to take them again to

family members who cannot

* Never smoke in bed.
* Have house wiring checks and do
not use items with frayed cords.
* Choose furniture items that have
fire resistant fabric.
* Do not leave the kitchen when

ers are on and check periodically to
make sure the burners are off.
* Do not store pots and pans or food

selves for three to five days.
One reason people may not be pre-
pared for or shrug off hurricane season
is because they have become compla-
cent, which is a concern for both the
Red Cross and emergency management,
said Ms. Rayner.
"When there aren't storms, people
forget what it was like to live through
them," she said.
The American Red Cross makes refer-
rals to those who have been impacted
and are seeking assistance after disas-
ters, but people can check any of the
Federal Emergency Management
Agency sites before and during hurri-
canes, as well as the county's emergency
site, www.stlucieco.gov/eoc, in addition
to the Red Cross' site, she said.

redcross.org., or call (772) 878-7077 (the
chapter's St. Lucie office).


brush up on skills, said Ms. Rayner.
A training schedule is available on the
Web site, www.ntc-redcross.org.
While the need for volunteers is great,
there are some restrictions.
"Typically, to work on a disaster, (a
volunteer) has to be 18-years-old,
which has to do with the volunteer
being able to drive any of the disaster
vehicles. However, we can take younger
volunteers with parental permission,"
said Ms. Rayner.
Anyone older than 12 can work -local-
ly, she added.
Apart from the age issue, the organi-
zation welcomes anyone of any skill
level to volunteer.
"All they have to have is a willingness
to serve their community. We pretty
much have a function that will fit any-
one," said Ms. Rayner.

volunteer, .visitwww.ntc-redcross.org, or

Pet owners should make

advance plans for the worst


Staff Report


ST. LUCIE COUNTY Many pet
owners realize too late they haven't
made adequate plans to ensure their
pets' safety in a storm.
The Humane Society of St. Lucie
County urges those who love their
pets to think ahead heading into hur-
ricane season. The foresight to do so
may just save your pet's life.
St. Lucie County does not have a
hurricane shelter that accepts pets. In
addition, owners who think they can
rely on the Humane Society as a shel-
ter during the storm will be turned
away because they are not a hurri-
cane-proof shelter. The last time a
hurricane was approaching, the
Humane Society sent animals as far
away as Georgia, Colorado and New
York tokeep them safe.
The Humane Society* has put
together a hurricane preparation kit in


an effort to educate the public on how
to prepare their animals for a storm.
The "pet preparation packet,"
includes anything you will need for
your pet to survive away from home.
Those items include: food, bottled
water, a litter box, litter and scoop for
cats, garbage bags, toys, a small first-
aid kit, and vaccination and veterinar-
ian records.
The Humane Society cannot stress
enough the importance of microchips
for pets, which are offered for $25. A
microchip is critical in these situa-
tions. It makes reuniting families and
lost pets much easier during times of
natural disasters.

For more information on obtaining
a microchip, contact the Humane Soci-
ety at (772) 461-0687 or visit them at
100 Savannah Road, Fort Pierce. You
may also visit. their Web site at

American Red Cross offers food safety tips


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
If a hurricane impacts our area, you
might be cut off from food, water and.
electricity for days. By preparing emer-
gency provisions, you can turn what
could be a life-threatening situation into a
manageable problem. As we well know, it
is possible that a hurricane can cut off
your food supply for two weeks. There-
fore, you should prepare a supply that will
last that long.
The easiest way to develop a two-week
stockpile is to increase the amount of
basic foods you normally keep on your
shelves and store them. Here are some
tips from the American Red Cross on
planning what to do for your food supply
before a hurricane strikes:
Storage tips
Keep food in a dry, cool spot, a
dark area if possible.
Keep food covered at all times.
Open food boxes or cans carefully,
so that you can close therh tightly
after each use.
*Wrap cookies and crackers in
plastic bags and keep them in tight


containers.
Empty opened packages of sugar,
dried fruits and nuts into screw-top
jars or air-tight cans to protect
them from pests.
Inspect all food for signs of
spoilage before use.
Use foods before they go bad, and
replace them with fresh supplies,
dated with ink or marker. Place new
items at the back of the storage area
and older ones in front.
It is important to keep in mind the shelf
life of foods for storage and rotate when
necessary. Foods such as wheat, vegetable
oils, soybeans, instant coffee, tea and
cocoa, salt, white rice, dry pasta, and pow-
dered milk in nitrogen-packed cans rmay
be stored indefinitely in proper contain-
ers and conditions. '
Canned vegetable soups, peanut butter,
jelly, ready-to-eat cereals, canned fruits,
fruit juices, and vitamin C need to be used.
within one year. And foods such as boxed
powdered milk, dried fruit (in a metal
container), crackers and potatoes must be
used within six months before replacing.
If food supplies are low:
.If activity is reduced, healthy people


can survive on half their usual food intake
for an extended period and without any
food for many days.
Food, unlike water, may be rationed
safely, except for children and pregnant
women.
If your water supply is limited, try to
avoid foods that are high in fat-and pro-
tein, and don't stock salty foods, since
they will make you thirsty. Try to eat salt-
free crackers, whole grain cereals and
canned foods with high liquid content.
You don't need to go out and buy unfa-
miliar foods. to prepare an emergency
food supply. You can use the canned
foods, dry mixes and other staples on
your cupboard-shelves. In fact, familiar
foods are important. They can lift
morale and give a feeling of security in
times of stress.
Also, canned foods won't require
cooking, water or special preparation.
As you stock food, take into account
your family's unique needs and tastes.
Try to include foods that they will enjoy
and are high in calories and nutrition.
Foods that require no refrigeration,
preparation or cooking are best.
Another option is HeaterMeals, com-
plete, self-contained meals that are as
easy as one-two-three to heat and serve.


Each HeaterMeal comes with everything
needed to prepare and enjoy a delicious,
hot meal in minutes. They are perfect as
part of a family hurricane kit because
they don't require refrigeration, and
have a shelf life of 1-2 to 24 months.
HeaterMeals have a generous entree,
fork, napkin, salt and pepper, as well as
the unique water activated food heater.
Simply pour the enclosed pouch of salt
water onto the heater pad, place the
sealed meal onto the heater and slide
the tray back into the box. These can be
ordered from www.heatermeals.com.
Individuals with special diets and
allergies will need particular attention,
as will babies, toddlers and elderly peo-
ple. Nursing mothers may need liquid
formula, in case they are unable to
nurse. Canned dietetic foods, juices and
soups may be helpful, for ill or elderly
people. Make sure you have a manual
* can opener and disposable utensils. And
don't forget nonperishable foods for
your pets.
For more hurricane safety informa-
tion, access the Red Cross Web site at
www.redcross.org/disaster/safety, or
contact your local American Red Cross
chapter.

Staying safe in a storm


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
As a hurricane approaches, there are
often feelings of anxiety and fear. The
American Red Cross reminds you, it is
important to know what to do during
storm watches and warnings, as well as
during and after hurricanes.
When the National Hurricane Center
posts a watch, there is a possible threat
of a tropical storm or hurricane within
36 hours.
Although it is a watch, it is not too
early to begin taking hurricane precau-
tions.
*Review all hurricane plans. Check
supplies. Continue to watch the
news to stay updated on the storm's
status.
*Plan ahead. Make a decision early
on where to ride out the storm.
Remember, a Red Cross shelter is a
shelter of last resort.
If you plan to board your house with
shutters or plywood, make sure you
have all the appropriate tools you will
need.
Start installing shutters in difficult
places to reach.
Fill your cars' gas tanks.


If you have propane gas service, turn
off the valve at the tank. With natural
gas, experts recommend keeping it on,
but ask your provider.
When a hurricane warning is
announced, this means the National
Hurricane Center expects tropical
storm or hurricane conditions in the
area within 24 hours.
*Recheck your lists. Make sure you
have at least the minimum stock
pile of items recommended by your
American Red Cross.
*Make sure your windows, door
openings and garage doors are
covered or braced.
*Reduce the Water in your in-
ground pools by 6 to 12-inches. Put
extra chlorine in your pool. Discon-
nect and protect your pool pump.
*Make sure all unsecured items
around the outside of the house,
such as tables, chairs, bicycles,
hoses, etc. are put away. These
items can become flying missiles
during the hurricane.
*Clean storm drains and swales of
debris.
*Disconnect propane gas at the tank.

Red Cross helps in many


different disaster situations


By Jay Meisel
meisel@hometownnewsol.com
The American Red Cross is an
organization that helps during major
disasters, such as hurricanes and
tornadoes.
But it assists people during a much
wider variety of calamities.
Every time there's a fire, the Red
Cross helps people with temporary
housing, food and assistance in
"getting back on their feet," said
Sharon Rayner, director of emergency
services for the North Treasure Coast
Chapter of the American Red Cross.
When police officers respond to a
situation that lasts for hours, Red
Cross volunteers make sure they have
food and beverages, she said.
And when firefighters are fighting a
blaze, Red Cross volunteers make .
sure they have ample food and water,
she said.
"We are here to serve our commu-
nity," Ms. Rayner said.
On a periodic basis, she said, the
American Red Cross provides volun-


teer training so they can help
respond to disasters in their commu-
nity.
The Red Cross also provides
education programs on a regular
basis so people are prepared for
possible disasters, she said.
The Red Cross provides education
for any type of disaster, whether a
possible pandemic or a hurricane,
she said.
People need to be educated on-
what they need, should a disaster
occur, she said.
That includes making sure they
have enough food in their homes to
allow them to get through a disaster,
if they could not get out and buy
food.
The Red Cross also works with
other agencies to plan for response to
any type of disaster, Ms. Rayner said.
To carry out those responsibilities,
the Red Cross needs volunteers.
Anyone interested in information
on volunteering can call (772) 878-
7077.

Safe
From page 17
*Get your safe room ready.
*Bring refrigerator and freezer down
to the coldest levels.
*Clean your tub with bleach and
rinse well. Fill with water to be used
for flushing and washing.
Fill plastic bottles with water and
freeze them.
Charge cell phone batteries.
*Locate water valves, gas valves and
main electric breaker. Have
instructions on how to turn them off.
During the storm, make'it your main
concern to stay safe. Do not venture
outside, even if the raging winds and
rain calm down. After the "eye" of the
storm passes; the weather will get dra-
matically worse very fast. The hurri-
cane will be over in a few hours. Do not
endanger your life or the lives of others
by going outside.


When inside, stay away from win-
dows and doors. -t
If your pets appear agitated, put
them in their carriers.
If the news reports tell you to go to
your safe room, do-it. If you see that
your house is suffering, head to your
safe room immediately and place a
mattress over you.
Only use the phones for emergen-
cies.
The time after the storm should be
used for recovery. You should not go
outside until the news reports tell you
it is safe, and even then proceed with
caution. Attempt to keep your emo-
tions in check. Seeing things you have
worked for destroyed is overwhelming,
but the important thing to remember
is that you and your family survived.
Remember, the American Red Cross
will be there to help you following a
storm.
The American Red Cross also
reminds you to:

safe, secure location until you have
*had time to examine the damage.
*If damage is severe, find a safe way
to get the rest of the family to a better
location. Call your insurance
company. Take pictures of the
damage, if any. Talk to FEMA.
*When you venture outside, be
attentive of downed power lines.
*Listen to the news reports to find
out if it is all right to drink the tap
water. If not, continue drinking
bottled water.
If your power is out, listen to news
reports on a portable rddio to see if
they are reporting major outages. Call
the power agency for updates. Your.
power could be out for a several days,
be patient. If you are short of supplies,
listen to the news to find out where
these items will be offered in your area.
Watch for Red Cross emergency
response vehicles coming through
your neighborhood with food and
water.
If you are using a generator, follow
operating instructions and precau-
tions.
Never use outdoor grills inside the
house.
Realize finding a contractor is going
to be difficult because they are going
to be in high demand. Be careful of
scams.
Be cautious while working around
your house, taking down shutters and
picking up debris.
Keep things in perspective. If your
power or A/C is out, know that it
could be stressful. Treat both neigh-
bors and strangers with respect; this
is a tense time for everyone and we
are all worn out. The time before and
after a hurricane is nerve- racking for
everyone. However, there are still pre-
cautions and responsibilities to take
in order to help secure you and your
family's safety.'
If you need assistance in planning
how to prepare for, survive and recover
from a hurricane, contact your nearest
American Red Cross chapter for
brochures and other helpful'informa-
tion. You may also find information
online at www.redcross.org.

As part of your communications plan,
choose an out-of-area relative or friend
as an emergency contact and make sure
all your household members know how.

As part of your evacuation plan,
choose two meeting places: one right

prevents you from returning home.
Be informed. Find out what types of

receive information from local officials
in the event of a disaster.
Part of being informed is learning first

Preparing your yard for hurricane season 2009


W ith all the latest hype in the
W news about the active ,
W V hurricane season at hand,
now is the time to plan in case the big
blow comes our way.
Even with this year's forecast to be a
"normal" season, there is still a
chance we could see a major'storm
come our way.
With this in mind, it is not too early
to plan your landscape, so in the
event of a storm, you don't have to
scramble for days to get it ready. With
careful planning, getting ready for a
storm does not have to be so draining.
The first thing you should do before.
hurricane season is trim all your trees
and bushes, Get rid of any foliage that
is dead or might be hanging over your
house. If you have any dead or weak
trees from last year, cut them down so'
they don't have a chance to do dam-
age this year.
Take a tour of your yard and make a
list of items that would be dangerous-
to leave lying around. This list should
include patio furniture, loose garden
ornaments, small, potted plants, yard

torches, arbors and even your gas
grill.
Make a list so you know ahead of
time what you will have to move. If
you have a shed or gazebo, you might
want to add extra tie downs to be sure
they stay put and don't wind up in
Kansas.
You can start .early by limiting what
you keep out in your yard during the
peak months of August and Septem-
ber. If you own a swimming pool, you
can throw all your patio furniture into
the pool to help keep it from traveling
across the state.
There are many plants you can put
in your yard that are both attractive
and also seemed to hold up fairly well
during a hurricane.'
Hibiscus, plumbago, firecracker,
ixoria and even my roses seemed to


hold up very well during our past
hurricanes.
You may also want to consider some
native plant varieties, such as palmet-
to bush, passionflower, azalea bush,
wax myrtle, live oak and southern
magnolia.
Native plants are used to the high
winds that can hit during hurricane
season since they have been around
our area for so many years. They also
add natural beauty to your yard.
If you live near the ocean, planting
becomes even more of a challenge,
because you need to have plants that
are resistant to salt spray. Remember
that a hurricane can carry ocean mist
far inland, with 70-plus mph winds.
Plant varieties such as Indian
hawthorne, saw palmetto, confeder-
.ate jasmine, society garlic, daylily,
pittisporum, oleander and Mexican
petunia can do very well in areas
where salt spray can be a problem.
Gardenia plants also can fare well
with less than 25 percent damage and
full recovery after one growing
season.


When planning your landscape, if
you are going to plant large trees, you
should always keep the distance from
the tree to the house greater than the
height of the tree when it is full
grown.
If you have any trees that are weak
or leaning, either have them secured
or remove them if they are within
striking distance of your home.
Another thing to look for is exposed
roots. If the soil has been washed
away from the roots of your trees, the
root structure may be weakened and
allow the tree to topple easily. Fill in
these areas with soil back to the
original ground level.
As you can see, with a few common
sense tips and some good planning,
you can have both an attractive and
safe yard this hurricane season.
Remember, the Atlantic hurricane
season begins June 1. Remember that
your yard is not the only place that
needs'preparation before hurricane
season starts. Have all your hurricane

Using a generator? Avoid the hazards of carbon monoxide poisoning


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
During and after the hurricane
seasons of 2004 and 2005, the hum of
generators created a cacophony but *
kept lights burning and air condition-
ers, fans and refrigerators running.
While generators provided much-
needed relief to so many, carbon
monoxide, a by-product of generator
operation, killed several people
statewide and sent dozens to area
hospitals.
Since that time, thousands of
generators were sold, placing more
people in danger of CO poisoning
now more than ever before.
When combustion engines, such as
generators, boats, lawnmowers, and
automobiles, are run in enclosed, or
even partially-enclosed areas without
sufficient ventilation, the potential for


CO poisoning increases exponentially.
Care also must be taken with charcoal
grills, as charcoal gives off high
quantities of CO when lit. Places
where generators and grills may be
used, such as garages, porches, or
even outside areas, may present
potential hazards if they are upwind
of open windows; In these situations,
CO gas can invade homes or buildings
and affect the occupants.
Carbon monoxide is a silent,
odorless killer. With more people
using generators to be better pre-
,pared for hurricane season, Red Cross
Officials want people to be equally
aware of the dangers and proper
procedures they should follow to keep
their lives and those of their loved
ones safe.
Many people with CO poisoning
mistake their symptoms for the flu or
are misdiagnosed, which sometimes

results in tragic deaths. Because CO
replaces oxygen in the blood, it can
make people feel sleepy. Or, if they are
asleep, it can prevent people from -
waking up.
Symptoms of CO poisoning include:
headache, nausea, fatigue, flu-like
symptoms, impaired vision anid
coordination, confusion, and a pink
tone to the skin.
Did you know that most people, in
the early stages of CO.poisoning, are
incapable of rescuing themselves or
even recognizing the problem due to
the confusion it causes? Ultimately,


brain damage or death may occur. '
Don't be a statistic. Simple precau-
tions could save your family from
illness or death. Only use generators
and grills in well-ventilated locations.
Do not operate your car in a garage to
charge the battery or even the batter-
ies of cell phones. Keep your family
and friends safe.
For more information, the American
Red Cross has fact sheets on carbon
monoxide poisoning prevention and
using a generator when disaster
strikes. Contact your local American
Red Cross to obtain free copies.

Cleaning up after a storm

If you are like me, one look at the
yard and it makes you wonder where
you should even start when planning
your cleanup effort.
The first tool you will need is a
good-quality chain saw. Gas is
preferred over electric, because gas
chain saws have more power and also,
if your power is out, you will not be
able to use your electric chain saw
unless you have a generator.
Before you start cutting your trees,
be sure to take a-full survey of your
yard.
Confirm that there are no power
lines entangled in your work area and
no large dangling limbs that could fall
and hit you once you start working.
If a large tree needs to be cut down,
it is probably best to leave that to an
expert tree service.
Most of my tree debris was already
on the ground and simply had to be
cut up and taken to the curb.
Once you have all the large debris
removed and cut up at your curb, the
next thing you should do is re-survey

your yard for other damage that may
have been hidden with the larger tree
branches.
When trying to clean up small twigs
and leaves from an area that has
either stepping stones or gravel, a
great tool to use for cleanup is a gas
blower.
I had a large garden area that is
covered with lava rock and trying to
use a rake to get the debris was also
picking up all the lava rock.
I brought out the trusty gas blower
and about 97 percent of the debris
was magically whisked away.
In fact, as a preliminary task before
raking, I successfully removed a good
deal of debris from the lawn area with
the leaf blower. This made the next
pass with a regular garden rake much
easier.
Once you are done with that, a pass
with a mulching lawn mower will
really put the finishing touches on
your yard.
Once you finish getting your yard
back to some kind of normalcy, you
can start planning your yard's
revamping.

STAR SCOPES
James Tucker
Week of 5-29-2009


Aries-March 21-April 19
You know what you want,
so the challenge is already
half met. Now is the time to
take action to set your
dreams underway. If you do,
abundance will be the out-
come. Keep on keeping on.
Never-give up. Quitting is
not in your vocabulary. Go
inside, find this magic, bring
it out and set it free. You are
now on the winning side of
life.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Life is good. You continue to
make steady, forward
progress. You are so accom-
plished. Just. don't go too
fast. Maybe it's time for a
break. Slow down a little.
Make a list of your top priori-
ties. Leave lesser ones alone.
Catch a second wind and
then move forward with
gusto. You are a role model
and a' true inspiration to all
who know you.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
Gemini, it's your time of the
year to lead the zodiac. Now
is the time to move your best
projects forward. It's time to
make your causes -known.
Sow new seeds and ideas
and grow new flowers and
causes. You are Gemini, the
great communicator of the
'written and spoken word.
Speak your truth and let your
desires be known.

Cancer- June 22-July 22
Your emotional capacity is so
enormous. You. are more
powerful than you realize.
Your love of spirit, friends
and family is legend. You
keep us all together. Just be
sure to create a little positive
movement and rhythm in
your life as well. You are
important .too you know.
New rewards are on the way.
Be open to receiving them.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
Pay a lot of attention to
details right now. It is better
to be, over prepared than-
under. Go ahead. Take action
on your causes and move
them forward. They will take
root and grow because of
paying attention and taking
care of the details first. Now
let your actions speak along
with your words and remark-
able results are on the way.

Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Your determination is con-
tagious. You never give up.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY-
The Department of Agri-
culture recently designated
24 Florida counties, includ-
ing St. Lucie, Martin and
Indian River, as primary
natural disaster areas as a
result of the cold weather
and freezing temperatures
that occurred from Jan.. 20-.
23.
. This designation makes
farm operators in both pri-
mary and contiguous coutn-
ties eligible to be consid-
ered for assistance from the
Farm Service Agency, grant-
ed eligibility requirements
are met.
This assistance includes
FSA emergency loans and
the Supplemental Revenue
Assistance Program, which
was approved as part of the
Food, Conservation and
Energy Act of 2008.
FSA will consider each
application on its own
merit, by taking into


account the extent of losses,
security:: available 'and
repayment ability.
At the urging .of Florida
Gov. Charlie Crist, the
USDA reviewed loss assess-
ment reports along with
additional information sub-
mitted by the Farm Service
Agency.
Based on this review,
USDA determined there
were sufficient production
losses to warrant a secretar-
ial natural disaster designa-
ti6n. ,
Agricultural groups that
were affected by the January
freeze should contact, their
local USDA Farm Service
Agency.
The Treasure Coast USDA
Farm Service Agency is
located at, 8400 Picos Road,
Suite 101, Fort Pierce. The
local FSA Agent is Mark
Tomsic and he can be
reached at (772) 461-4546 or

How does your gof course drain?


A after waiting months
S for rain, our prayers
.L -were finally
answered this past week.
Maybe now we'll see
some green fairways and
lakes with water in them!
Of course, we'll all lose 50-
yards of roll on our drives
Sas well (insert sad face
here)..
As the rain washed out
my after-work golf plans
the other day, I wondered
why some courses or holes
drain well'and others do
not.
Most golfers don't ever
think about what is under
' the course. Myriad catch
' basins and drainage pipes
0 installed before the first
' blde of grass grew ointhe
course is usually of no
concern.
When the rains do fall,
' however, all work in
concert with the design of
the course, to rid each hole

of water as quickly as
possible.
"There are three fact
that affect course,
drainage," said Charles
Ankrom, international

"site, soil and the client."
The first factor, site,
varies from course to

located in areas with little
rainfall, strong drying
winds and an abundance

drain well.

Stammer
From page 87
In Florida, courses are
normally subject to a lot of
rain, and while we do have,
strong winds and abundant
sunshine, we suffer from
high humidity. The evapora-
tion rate is much lower than
you'd expect. We also suffer
from not having much
elevation change. Water
simply has no desire to run
anywhere.
Soil content is next. The
greater the amount of
topsoil a course has, the
better it can handle a
downpour. Topsoil will
absorb a large amount of
water, and the thicker the
layer, the more water the
Course can handle.
However, it is the subsur-
face soil stratum has the
biggest influence on course
drainage.
"A course with a sandy
subsurface will have an
excellentabsorption rate,"
said Ankrom. "You look at
Martin County (Golf Club).
they have a very sandy sub-
base. That course stays
open when some of the
exclusive private clubs in
our area have to shut down.
That's because it absorbs
water so well."
Courses unlucky enough
to have a hard sub-surface,
such as marl or sandstone,
will need more lakes, storm.


drains and collection areas
for the water the course will
shed during a storm or the
wet season.
Probably the biggest
factor aside from nature is
the client.
If the course owner or
developer has the money
and is sensitive to the golf
course, he maybe willing to
spend it to design and build
a good drainage system. If
the owner simply wants an
amenity for his housing
development, then chances
are the money will not be
spent and the course won't
drain well.
If the soil can absorb 1
inch of rainfall and it rains 2
inches, the ground is
fighting a losing battle. The
high points of the course
will absorb the first inch
and then the second inch
will flow downhill. As that
water flows to a low point or
a catch basin, it grows.
exponentially, adding itself
to the water already accu-
mulating downhill.
Ankrom, like most
architects, uses many more
drains now than 15 or 20
years ago. He recently
completed a total renova-
tion atWoodmont Country
Club in Tamarac.
"I added 220 drains to:
capture water," he said.
"The original design (circa
early 1970s) had water
running 1,000 feet before
finding a drain. I changed
that. Now it may run 100


feet."
Modern architects also
use nature to help drain the
course. Sand retention areas
and waste areas have
become quite popular.
Lakes are used to do three
things: disperse water,
' generate fill for building the
course and store storm
water.
The fairways and rough
aren't the only places a golf
course architect works to
drain water from the course.
The greens of a modern,
course have a complicated
drainage system built into
them, as well.
Today's modern green is
topped with 12 inches of
custom topsoil. Under that
is 4 inches of gravel followed
by a herringbone system of
drainpipes set 20 feet apart.
'The water that makes it to
the.drainpipes is taken to a
lake, swale, dry well or other
low point, well away from
the green.
Thanks to modern
irrigation, courses are kept
very lush..Unfortunately,
sometimes, very hard rains
follow this irrigation and
simply add too much water
to the equation.
For now I'm happy to see
Sthe rain. We need it desper-
ately! As long as it's over by
Sthetime Saturday rolls
around.
