.( HOW WEIRD
S IS THAT?!
SEAN MCCARTHY



Spend any time surfing
the Web and you are
bound to find stories
that are just too bizarre to
be true. Here's a sampling,
edited for length. And
remember, just because it's
online doesn't mean it's
true!
From NBCLosAngeles.com:
Man discovers biological
father is Charles Manson
When Los Angeles disc
jockey Matthew Roberts
began searching for his
biological parents 12 years
ago, there's no way he could
have imagined the truth
he'd eventually discover. His
father is serial killer Charles
Manson.
"I didn't want to believe it.
I was frightened and angry.
It's like finding out that
Adolf Hitler is your father.
I'm a peaceful person
trapped in the face of a
monster," Roberts told The
Sun.
Roberts, 41, said through
letters with Manson, he has
confirmed the serial killer is
indeed his father. Manson
remains in jail for the 1969
murders of actress Sharon
Tate and six others.
From sfgate.com:
Sparkling reindeer-dung
jewelry sells at zoo
Sparkly reindeer-dung
necklaces are going on sale
at an Illinois zoo that hopes
to attract the same holiday
shoppers who swept up its
dung Christmas ornaments
last year. The limited-
edition Magical Reindeer
Gem necklaces will debut
Friday at the Miller Park Zoo
in Bloomington. The $15
pendant necklaces contain
dried, sterilized reindeer
droppings sprayed with
glitter on a beaded chain.
They'll be available at the

City finalizes deal for


digital production studio

Plan calls for 500 new jobs by 2014


By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST. LUCIE When it
came to a new digital production
studio, Port St. Lucie beat Holly-
wood. Hollywood, Fla., that is.
Wyndcrest Holdings, based in
Hobe Sound, is expected to open
temporary headquarters for a


studio in Tradition by Dec. 2, said
John Textor, company chairman
of Hobe Sound, after the Port St.
Lucie City Council approved a
$51.8 million deal last week.
The deal, in addition to a $20
million incentive package from
the state, helped Port St. Lucie
come out on top of Hollywood,
Orlando and other cities.


Birth parents reunite with daughter

week at Perkin's Restaurant.


By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com

PORT ST. LUCIE Seventeen years
ago by chance, the needs of two fami-
lies merged.
Matthew "Chic" and Barbara Cor-
coran couldn't have a child and Greg
and Virginia Symins felt they needed
to give up their future child for adop-
tion.
Last week, the families gathered for
the first time in 17 years at the Perkins
Restaurant where they talked about
the adoption in 1992.
They had reconnected on Facebook
in September.
Cecile, 16, the Symins' daughter,
who was adopted by the Corcorans,
met her birthparents and her brother,
Sage, 12, for the first time.
"Doing this was the hardest part,"
Cecile said, about meeting her birth


family. She said she plans to stay in
touch with them.
The families quickly noticed that
Sage and Cecile have a strong facial
resemblance.
That the families came together in
the first place resulted from a conver-
sation that took place at Pizza Hut in
Port St. Lucie between Mrs. Corcoran's
mother and the Symins.
The Corcorans lost a child in 1989
and were unable, at the time, to have
another child because Mr. Corcoran
had a vasectomy.
Mrs. Corcoran's mother
approached her one day in 1992 and
asked if she and her husband would
be interested in adopting a child. They
decided they were interested.
The mother, while working at Pizza
Hut, became aware that Greg and Vir-
ginia Symins wanted to have their
child, who was not yet born, adopted.
"I wasn't mentally ready," Mrs.


Symins said about becoming a parent
at the time she was first pregnant.
Greg Symins said he was 17 and not
really ready to be a father.
"In our minds, we thought some-
one else would give a better life to our
child than we could," he said.
He never focused on regretting the
decision because he had confidence
his daughter was being cared for well,
he said.
But he was curious about his
daughter and how she was doing
growing up.
"It was more of a wondering feeling
than a regret thing," he said.
Initially, the families met at Pizza
Hut to discuss the impending adop-
tion. Then they held a longer meeting
at Perkins.
After Cecile was born at Lawnwood
Regional Hospital, the families went

Hospital


has high


record


for organ


donations
By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com

FORT PIERCE Doctors
and nurses struggle to save
every patient with serious
injuries who arrive at the
trauma center at Lawn-
wood Regional Medical
Center and Heart Institute.
Despite those efforts,
some die, but in some
cases, the tragedy leads to
someone else's life being
saved.
Last month, Lawnwood
was recognized for its out-
standing record for organ
donation.
Lawnwood was the only
hospital in South Florida
and the Treasure Coast to
receive the honor from the
U.S. Secretary of Health and
Human Services and the
University of Miami Hospi-
tal Life Alliance Team.
Lisa Sharot, director of
the intensive care unit for
the trauma center, said the
award shows people in the
local community want to
help others, as in 100 per-
cent of the situations where
patients could donate, they
did.
"It speaks volumes about
the community taking
something that's a horrible
situation and turning it in
something positive," she
said.
When it appears that a
patient is not going to
recover, the hospital alerts
Life Alliance of the potential
organ donor, said Jana
Eschbach, director of medi-
al relations for Lawnwood.
The donation can only
happen after the patient is
brain dead, either the
patient or his or her spouse
or other nearest relative has
consented and the organs,
tissues or bones are consid-
ered to be in suitable condi-
tion for a transplant, hospi-
tal officials said.
Since the trauma center
opened, Lawnwood has
communicated with Life
Alliance about 17 possible
donors. Three have actually
been accepted as donors,
said, Martine Morency, hos-
pital services specialist for
the University of Miami.
Ms. Sharot said one per-
son could potentially help
200 people.
With the advent of the
trauma center earlier this
year, she said, more
patients become potential
organ donors because the

St. Lucie resident Bob
Schlock concedes he's a lit-
tle out of shape.
When he went to trendy
gyms, he said, he felt
uncomfortable because
he'd see a lot of people with
a lot of muscles.
But at the fitness center
in Port St. Lucie's Commu-
nity Center, he'd encounter
a lot of people in similar
shape.
"Here you feel comfort-
able," he said.
Mr. Schlock and others


will have to find another
location as of Dec. 4 to get
in shape.
Hospital Corporation of
America, the owner of St.
Lucie Medical Center and
Lawnwood Regional Med-
ical Center and Heart Insti-
tute, has ended its contract
to run the fitness center.
Jana Eschbach, director
of public relations for St.
Lucie Medical Center and
Lawnwood, said the deci-
sion to end the contract
was because of economics.
"This was a business
decision," she said. "The

Wyndcrest Holdings is
the parent company of
Digital Domain of Venice,
Fla., which has won
numerous awards for its
special effects for movies
including the "The Curious
Case of Benjamin Button"
and "Pirates of the
Caribbean."
Digital Domain has done
work for all of the major
movie studios, he said. It
has received eight Acade-
my Awards for special
effects.
The deal to attract Wyn-
dcrest includes $10 million
the city received from
developers. That money
will be doled out by the
city, as Wyndcrest meets its
targets in the contract,
including requiring 500
jobs with an average salary
about $65,000, city manag-
er Don Cooper said.
Additionally, Core Com-


munities, which developed
Tradition, donated 15
acres valued at $10 mil-
lion.
And the city and St.
Lucie County have teamed
to provide $28 million in
bond money to build and
equip the studio and $3.8
million for workforce
development and opera-
tional costs.
Wyndcrest will lease the
building from the city and
the lease payments will
cover all costs, except the
$10 million. After Wynd-
crest makes the final pay-
ment of $1, it will receive
title to the building.
Most people at the meet-
ing supported the deal.
"It is imperative for St.
Lucie County that we bring
in jobs of this caliber," said
Michael Lannon, superin-
tendent of schools for St.
Lucie County.
The studio will be a
source of future jobs for
students, he said.

However, even if initially
many of the employees are

Mr. Cooper said since no

When Fort Pierce Central

EARL STEWART ST"EARTL

( TOYOTA


An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".


Fellow Florida Car Dealers, if you don't
know me, I should tell you that I don't profess
to be some "holier than thou" car dealer who
was always perfect for the past 38 years.
When I look at some of my past advertising
and sales tactics, I am not always proud.
But I have evolved as my customers have
evolved. My customers' expectations, level
of education and sophistication are much
higher today. Your customers are no different.
My remarks are made sincerely and with a
positive intent toward you and your custom-
ers. I am not trying to tell you
how to run your business. I "MV CM
am suggesting a change that -
will reward both you and your expectat
customers.


EMPLOYMENT
If our culture
sounds like one
that fits with your
ideas on the way
business should
be conducted,
please call us.
561*844*3461
We need to add
to our team in all
departments...
sales, service,
parts, body shop,
and accounting.

Virtually every car dealer Of eauca
in Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a Sophistic
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500 much higi
to nearly $1,000. This extra
charge is programmed into
your computer. It has been made illegal in
many states including California, but is still
legal in Florida. The reason you charge this
fee is simply to increase the price of the car
and your profit in such a manner that it is not
noticed by your customers. This is just plain
wrong. I used to charge a dealer fee ($495)
and when I stopped charging it a few years
ago it was scary. But I did it because I could
no longer, in good conscience, mislead my
customers. Just because everybody else
was doing the same thing, did not make it
correct.


Now, here is the good news. After eliminat-
ing the dealer fee my profit per car did drop
by about the amount of the dealer fee, but
my customers realized I was now giving them
a fair shake and quoting a complete out-the-
door price with no "surprises". And the word
spread. My volume of car sales began to rise
rapidly. Sure, I was making a few hundred
dollars less per car, but I was selling a lot
more cars. I was and am selling cars to many
of your former customers. My bottom line
has improved, not because I eliminated the
dealer fee, but because I was
towers' able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
ons, level or used car. You can do the
same.
tion and Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
ation are I think of myself as the new
"sheriff" that has come to
er today." "clean up South Florida". In
fact, I am well aware that this
letter is, to some extent, self-
serving. Many people will read this letter and
learn why they should buy a car from me,
and not you. And, I am also aware that most
dealers who read this will either get angry and
ignore it or not have the courage to follow my
lead. But maybe you will be the exception. If
you have any interest in following my lead,
call me anytime. I don't have a secretary and
I don't screen any of my phone calls. I would
love to chat with you about this.
Sincerely,
Earl Stewart Earl Stewart Toyota

Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous

Cash catastrophe

While he will be in big trouble with the spin doctors in
the Obama administration, White House budget director
Peter Orszag has admitted that the current federal
spending spree is endangering the economy and that
"deficits of this size are serious and ultimately unsustain-
able."
They call it a "shortfall," but with red ink of $9 trillion
over the next 10 years, it is more like a catastrophe.

Healthcare reform

Politicians are claiming their "reform" of our health
care system will be "self-financed," but one blogger has
acknowledged this "subterfuge is historically necessary
to get great reforms enacted."
It has been known for some time, but now the elephant
is out of the room. So-called health care reform is
designed to make the public dependent on the govern-
ment and the costs will be placed squarely on the shoul-
ders of each and every one of us.

Don't buy into public option

Anyone who believes bureaucrats when they try to sell
the "public option" is really buying a pig in a poke.
No one knows how Washington will change our health
care but some things are certain. They do not know that
things will get better. They could get worse. And no one
knows how much these changes will cost. They probably
will get much better.
Of course, taxpayers will be forced to pay the higher
price tag.

Vaccine shortages

Since the government is running the show when it
comes to the distribution of vaccines, why is the supply
so limited, why is the system so inefficient and why are
some physicians recommending that if they do get sup-
plies they will be forced to offer only split doses?
This mess could be a preview of how the government
will operate if and when the politicians are able to take
over our entire health care system.

Disney in China?

I heard they are going to build a Disney World in China.
I sure hope they use a lot of Chinese drywall during con-
struction.

Flu prevention

You see so much about what to do when you get the
H 1N1 virus, but what do we do to prevent it?
I know one thing is dressing properly. Stop wearing the
same things you would wear when it's 95 degrees outside.
It's getting chilly, so cover up. You can get sick that way.
And people should eat better and have a better diet.
Women have to do a better job feeding their husbands
before they go out to work. They need a power breakfast,
just like the children.
Editor's note: In several articles that have appeared in
Hometown News about the H1N1 flu virus, the No. 1 rec-
ommendation from medical personnel for staying healthy
is frequent hand- washing.

Cell phone laws

There's been a lot of talk about passing laws regarding
talking on phones while on cell phones.
Start giving them tickets when they don't use a turn sig-
nal. They only have two hands. One hand on the steering
wheel, one on a cell phone and no hand to turn on the
turn signal. That should start making them put the
phone down.

What to know before calling tech support


Ill, it finally hap-
pened. Your
computer has
issues and it's time to call for
help It happens to every
computer user eventually-
that dreaded call to tech
support.
This week, I will share
some tips that can make that
inevitable call to tech
support go smoothly.
The first question that you
have to ask yourself is: "Who
are you going to call?" That
answer depends on the
issues you are having.
For instance, if you are
having Internet connection
issues, you may want to call
your Internet provider (AOL,
AT&T, Comcast, Road
Runner or whoever you are
using to connect to the
Internet).
If you are having hardware
issues, such as problems
accessing a printer or other
device, you may need to
contact support for that
device.
For problems withWin-
dows (Windows won't load,
etc.), a call to Microsoft's
tech support may be in
order.
If you are having problems
with the computer itself
(getting errors or beep codes
as soon as you turn it on),
you may want to call the


Fighting
he days get shorter at
this time of year, even
in Florida. Many of us
start to feel a little blue.
Those of us who came
from the north are familiar
with the "winter blues,"
when the days get short and
gray, the trees grow bare and
everything seems damp and
cold.
For many of us, escaping
the depression that came
with the winter weather was
a major reason for coming
to Florida to live, and
snowbirds continue to come
here each winter for our
"best season."
While the winter blues
may not be as severe in the
south, it is still a reality for
many people. Even in
Florida, the days grow
shorter and there are far
fewer hours of sunlight each
day. It can be sunny at 3
p.m. and dark by 4:30!
Those of us who are
susceptible to the "winter
blues" or seasonal
affective disorder, as it is
medically known need to
be alert, understand the
symptoms and take action
to ease the distress of SAD.
The first thing you need to
know is that SAD is a
recognized form of depres-
sion that has been linked to
a biochemical imbalance in
the brain. The imbalance is
brought on by the shorter
days and lack of sunlight. It
is real!
Some symptoms of SAD
include: excessive sleeping,
increased appetite and

manufacturer of the com-
puter.
That's a lot of decisions to
make even before making
the call, but you need to be
clear about the nature of the
problem. Answering these
questions beforehand will
help clarify your issues
before you make the call.
Also, don't forget the
warranty. Some devices may
carry warranties that last
years. It would be frustrating
to fix or replace a device only
to find out you could have
had it fixed under warranty.
Once you're clear on
whom to call and why, sit in
front of the computer when
you make the call. There is
little that any phone support
technician can do for you if
you are not sitting in front of
the machine. You have to be
his "eyes and ears" so make
sure that, when you call for
help, you are at your
computer.
After spending some time
on hold, (nothing I can help
with there) you will finally
get someone on the line.


Remember: This person is
new to your issue and has no
idea what you have or have
not tried yet. He's going to
ask you questions and
perhaps have you click some
things.
Even if he is having you
click something you have
already clicked, comments
such as, "I already tried that,"
don't help. He hasn't tried
anything yet and needs to
start somewhere.
Also keep in mind that
even if your tech support
person has a thick accent, he
probably does this 40 hours
a week and knows exactly
what he's looking for.
When he asks you to click
something and you don't
immediately see it, don't
instantly reply with, "I don't
have that." Do a thorough
scan of all of the icons in
whatever screen you are
looking in and make sure.
Nine times out of 10, you'll
find it.
Follow the directions the
support person gives you,
and try not to get distracted
by all the other stuff that will
pop up on the way. Stay
focused on his or her
instructions and you'll
usually get through most
issues quickly and without
too much frustration.
Hopefully, you won't have


to make that call, but when
you do, having as much
information in front of you
will help. Things such as any
specific error messages that
may be popping up, what
you were doing when the
problem occurred and so on.
This information is invalu-
able to the tech support
person on the other end of
the phone.
If you have a "quick
question," that's great. Just
remember that 99 percent of
all tech support calls are just
quick questions. It's the
answer that can drag on for
hours.
So, how did I come up with
this week's subject matter?
Well, I used to work in a
phone support center and
spent better than 10 hours a
week on the phone helping
people walk through their
computer issues. I still fix
computers, and over the
years I found that the calls
that go quickest are the ones
where the caller is at least a
little prepared, in front of the
computer when they call
and follow my instructions
precisely without getting
distracted along the way.

seasonal affective disorder


weight gain (people often
turn to comfort food and
crave starches and sugars),
irritability, difficulties with
other people, especially
feelings of rejection, a heavy,
leaden feeling on the arms
and legs.
The American Psychiatric
Association (www.healthy-
minds.org) suggests a
variety of treatments that
are effective in managing or
staving off SAD.
The first thing to try is to
increase exposure to
sunlight. If possible, take a
walk or arrange an office or
room so that you are
exposed to a window. If you
work in a cubicle, try to get
out on your lunch hour. A
walk also decreases stress
and exercise has been found
to help with the symptoms
of SAD.
If your symptoms don't go
away, or affect your daily
life, then it's time to seek
help. A professional trained
in the treatment of depres-
sion may recommend
several treatments including
some traditional measures
such as talk therapy and
anti-depressants.
However, he or she may
also recommend light
therapy, which has been
very effective in treating


SAD. This involves exposure
to a bright light from a
special fluorescent light box
for between 30 to 90
minutes a day during the
winter. Many people notice
improvement within a few
days, while other may take a
few weeks to see improve-
ment. If there is none at all,
other treatments may be
necessary.
Before investing in a
bright light device, you
should consult with your
physician, because people
with certain eye conditions
and sensitivity to light may
not be good candidates for
the treatment.
In addition, someone
should monitor your
progress, to see how you are
feeling, and if the treatment
is appropriate for you.
Light therapy devices
range from metal boxes to
portable lamps. They
contain white fluorescent
light bulbs behind a diffuser,
so the light is at a downward
angle, allowing more to
enter the eyes. The diffuser
spreads the light evenly and
absorbs and filters danger-
ous ultraviolet rays. It is
extremely important to
purchase a light box from a
reputable company that can
provide independent
verification that the devices
they sell are free of ultravio-
let rays that can damage the
eyes and skin.
If seasonal affective
disorder is a problem for
you, it's a good idea to think
about a solution before the


days grow shorter and
depression sets in. That's
when it seems hard to do
anything, including seek
treatment.
You can call 211 and ask
for organizations that
provide mental health
counseling, many on sliding
scales. You can also check
the yellow pages of the
phone directory under
mental health services.
For more information
about SAD, contact the
National Institute of Health
at (800) 421-4211, or visit
www.nimh.nih.gov.
The Web site of The
Society for Light Treatment
and Biological Rhythms is
intended for professionals,
but it has an extensive
section on SAD for the
general public. The Web site
is www.sltbr.org.

Anniversary committee

seeks community input


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST. LUCIE A vol-
unteer committee is plan-
ning Port St. Lucie's 50th
anniversary celebration.
The city's jubilee activities
will kick-off Sunday, April
24, 2011, with the unveiling
of the city's birthday logo.
Special events are being
planned throughout the city
for a full week in honor of
this important milestone in
the city's history, but resi-
dents and visitors will have
various opportunities to
celebrate this special birth-
day throughout the year.
The anniversary commit-
tee is seeking the public's
help in locating photo-
graphs of Port St. Lucie pub-
lic or commercial buildings
built in the 1970s and 1980s,


, .


as well as photographs of
community events that took
place during those decades.
In addition, the commit-
tee is seeking any artifacts,
newspaper articles or other
memorabilia that would
depict the history and
growth of Port St. Lucie over
the last 50 years.
Any residents in posses-
sion of such photographs or
memorabilia who is willing
to donate them for the
anniversary celebrations is
asked to contact the Port St.
Lucie Historical Society at
(772) 337-5698. If desired,
the historical society will
scan the photographs and
return the originals to the
owners.
As part of the anniversary,
a book detailing the city's
history, "Port St. Lucie at 50:
A City for All Ages," will


soon be available.
Written by Nina Baranski,
former director of the city's
community relations
department (now known as
the communications
department), in collabora-
tion with the Port St. Lucie
Historical Society, the book
is being underwritten by
Riverside National Bank,
Core Communities and
Johnson Brothers Corpora-
tion.
The historical society is
currently taking orders for
limited, signed editions of
the book for $49.99 plus tax
(copies that are not limited,

Ihad the opportunity
recently to tour the
Carnival Dream in Port
Canaveral. She is quite a
vessel.
Much larger than all other
Carnival ships, the Dream has
many firsts for Carnival and
many industry innovations
and enhancements.
The Dream is different from
all other Carnival ships in that
it is bigger and has added
features that will appeal to
many cruisers, whether they
are Carnival fans or not.
As with all their newer
vessels, it was designed by
architect and designer Joe
Farcus who, is in my opinion,
is over-the-top in color and
concept however, I also must
say each of his designs is top
notch.
The Dream, I felt, was more
brass and glass than others,
but still with unimaginable
amounts of color and lines

ric and are lighted in some
form or another.
We entered the Dream on
deck three, right onto the
lowest deck of the 11 story
atrium. There is definitely a
wow factor. You look up from
the atrium floor, following the
glass elevators up to deck 14,
and all you see are squares of
lighted yellow/gold glass with
specs of a darker bronze.
These lighted squares
(sometimes seen in other
shapes) can be found in
various areas around the ship.
Each floor surrounding the
atrium- with its glass
circular stairway that goes up
to deck five has brick-color
banquettes surrounding the
glass railing so you can watch


entertainment that goes on
throughout the day in the
atrium.
From the atrium going
forward will bring you to the
lowest level of the three story
Encore theatre which was
lovely in its orange/brick and
beige tones.
We did see a portion of the
show "Dancing in the Streets"
which was an upbeat musical
and dance ensemble; very
enjoyable. We had a great
view, but there are areas you
will need to avoid due to
obstructions by poles. There
is plenty of seating.
We ate a wonderful lunch
in the Scarlet Restaurant. If
this is indicative of all meals
aboard then there should be
no complaints. The wait staff
was pleasant and efficient.
Speaking of lunch, while
touring the ship we went by
The Gathering, which is the
buffet on lido deck and

From page A10
good, there were lines at all of
the food kiosks and many
folks got off the ship on
excursions. This might be a
concern for me, however it is
a new ship and a new layout,
therefore they can be excused
until everything falls into
place.
On deck four you will find
one of the biggest conference
rooms at sea, with removable
walls so you may have three
meetings at one time or use
the entire space. This is great
for private groups, seminars
at sea or corporate meetings
aboard ship. With the walls
closed off you could use the
room for private bridge
games or even the popular
scrap-booking groups.
The 19,000-square-foot
kids' area is also impressive.
Each age group has its own
areas for activities. This does
not include the incredible
aqua park where they have
the largest slide at sea.
The promenade wraps
around deck five and would
probably be the place to be,
with the Ocean Plaza lying
across the middle of the deck
connecting to a lanai with its
spa hot tubs hanging off the
both sides of the ship.
Ocean Plaza offers enter-
tainment, Plaza Bar and CafO.
There is both day and nightly
entertainment. Walking from
the lanai along the upper
promenade, you will come
across Wasabi sushi bar,
Caliente dance club, The
Song jazz bar, Sam's Piano Bar
and onto the 420-seat


Burgundy Lounge; like I said,
lots of action on deck five.
The Dream offers Cloud 9
Spa staterooms and suites,
which gives you private
access, special amenities and
priority reservations. The
room, although pretty much
the same size, the d6cor and
overall feel of them is relax-
ing, as are the corridors
getting to and from your spa
stateroom.
The technology on board
this ship is unbelievable.
Instead of the Internet cafes
on most ships the Dream has
fun hubs, which are all over
the ship and give guests
totally free access to onboard
activities.
You can create blogs for
other, like-minded folks
onboard to share and you can
leave messages for those in
your family or group to let
them know where you are
and what your plans are,
really fun stuff. The ship has
Wi-Fi almost everywhere on
board and once you sign up
(there is a fee) you can use
your laptop.
The Carnival Dream will
make Port Canaveral its
homeport starting with a
nine-day sailing Dec. 3. She
will then start her regular
alternating Eastern and
Western Caribbean itineraries
leaving on Saturdays.
Carnival lovers of course
will be in heaven on this ship,
others cannot deny the
incredible atmosphere and
style of the ship. It is the fun
ship and it shows.

TREASURE COAST -
Seacoast National Bank
delivered thousands of
pounds of food that were
donated at the bank's 29
branch locations in Indian
River, St. Lucie, Martin
and Palm Beach counties
as a result of the 2009
Food For Families com-
munity food drive.
For the second year as
the food drive sponsor, the
bank gathered non-per-
ishable food donations,
which will be distributed
within the county where it
was gathered, through
established, nonprofit
organizations that distrib-
ute food to economically
challenged families and
individuals.
"We are grateful for the
unprecedented amount of
donations that were
brought into our branches
this year," said Dennis
Hudson, chairman and
CEO of Seacoast National
Bank.
"Our employees, cus-
tomers and the communi-
ty as a whole opened their
hearts and pantries to
help those less fortunate."
Although the bank does-
n't have an official
accounting of the amount
of food donated this year
at this time, the 2008 Food
For Families drive resulted
in 882,022 pounds of food
gathered that benefited
110 nonprofit organiza-
tions that feed families in
need and the homeless on
a regular basis.


Studio
From page A2
"In California it is very
expensive to do business,"
he said.
The trend is for produc-
tion studios to have opera-
tions in other states, he
said.
He also noted the edu-
cational environment in
Florida is good with
schools in Sarasota and
Orlando for digital pro-
duction.
Indian River State Col-
lege already had programs
in the field and is consid-
ering expanding its pro-
grams, he said. It's not
unusual for a production
studio to produce film and
video game special effects,
he said.
"Those two worlds are
coming together," Mr. Tex-
tor said.

TREASURING LIFE


Moe's wife


"When Moe was so sick, he really wanted to be at home. I hesitated to call hospice, because
I thought Moe would have to go somewhere else for care.

"Our daughter knew better and called Treasure Coast Hospice. In just a few hours, they had
him all set up in our home a bed, his medicines, everything. Moe was so happy. He felt he
got his dignity back.

"In addition to Moe, Treasure Coast took care of our whole family. We were able to celebrate
his life together. To me, the people of Treasure Coast are angels on earth."

FORT PIERCE When
Tennessee native Craig
Morgan was 12, he went on
a school field trip. He was
asked to sing the national
anthem, and at the end of
it, a woman came up to
him and told him that he'd
be a famous singer some
day.
The woman was Minnie
Pearl and she was right,
because in 2008, Mr. Mor-
gan was inducted into the
Grand Ole Opry on Ms.
Pearl's birthday.
Mr. Morgan has hit the
charts with songs such as
"That's What I Love About
Sunday," "Bonfire," Red-
neck Yacht Club" and
"Almost Home," and he
maintains a busy touring
schedule. He will appear at
the Sunrise Theatre on
Dec. 11 in a concert spon-
sored by Hometown News.
He spoke recently about
his music and staying
grounded when the music
takes off.
The singer/songwriter
had a varied career before
his success in the country
music world. He worked as
a deputy sheriff and an
assistant dairy manager at
Wal-Mart and spent 10
years in the Army in the


101st and 82nd Airborne
Divisions as a fire support
specialist. He didn't rely
solely on his music until he
was able to support his
family.
"It's easy to forget the
real world if you start
believing all the hype," he
said. "I have a wife, four
kids and knucklehead
friends. I'm just lucky to
have the best job there is.
At the end of the day, it can
all be gone."
What can the audience
expect from a Craig Mor-
gan show?
"It will be high energy
and a lot of fun," he said.
"If we mess up, we admit
it. We do all the songs
everyone's heard on the
radio. We have fun and we
want people to have fun. I
don't consider myself in
competition with other
artists. I'm competing with
the movie theaters and
dinner out. I want them to
want to see more country
shows, and, in particular,
mine. I think of myself as
an entertainer. I like to
entertain."
Mr. Morgan considers
his induction into the
Grand Ole Opry the great-
est honor any entertainer
can receive, but he also
knows that fame can be
fleeting. If it all disap-

peared, he knows what he
will do.
"I'll be in law enforce-
ment," he said. "I enjoy
that. I'm always going to
do something I love, I
promise you that. Life's too
short to do something you
hate."

Endurance is one of your

you and thank you for always
being there. Your fiery nature
lights the way and keeps us
from getting lost. May the
coming holidays be very spe-
cial.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
When life gets overloaded,
take a step back, along with
a deep breath and get a sec-
ond wind. Then refocus and
move forward. Call on family,
friends or loved ones when
you need a helping hand or
friendly voice. That's what
friends are for. You always
give to others. Let it come
back. Now everyone is
happy.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
Keep searching for balance.
Stay happy and glowing
inside. It's all about the
choices we make. Find
humor in small things. You
have a sweet inner child.
Your heart is as large and lov-
ing. When you are happy, the
world is happy. Guide your
life toward peace, love,
health and abundance. It's all
that really matters.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
Your spirit is so strong. Your
heart prevails. People
admire, love and respect
you. There is so much more
you want to do. Stay active
over the holidays, but don't
overdo it. You are a people
person, capable of great hap-
piness and achievement.
When you get fired up and
turned on, this world is a far
better place to be in.

Your life force is so strong
and vibrant. You have a free
flowing connection between
your body, mind, heart and
soul. Use these great gifts to

rejoice over the holidays.
Now is the time to make
plans for the New Year and
start it off on an even higher
path of greatness.

Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept. 22

Scopes
From page B1
Your life path and greatest
happiness comes when you
are serving others. You love
to see everybody well fed
and happy. The more you
receive the more you can
give. This is your harvest of a
good life well lived.

Libra-Sept. 23-Oct.22
A lifetime of accumulated
wisdom and experience
continues to move you for-
ward toward your dreams
and goals. Your decisions
are made on feelings and
instincts and allow you
access to your higher power.
This gives you a distinct
edge. It is the stuff that great
souls use to guide their
lives. You are a great soul.

Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 21
You continue to move for-
ward to new and better
days. You have outgrown
old, outdated patterns. You
aren't stuck anymore. Your
creative juices are flowing
again. Get restarted on the
life project that has been
sidetracked for a while. You
have the blessing of the uni-
verse upon you. You are a
free spirit ready to fly.

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
The universe wants to give
you all the energy you need
to make it safely through
the holidays. Yeah! It's time
to celebrate. Call some fam-
ily members and friends
who love and miss you. In
the giving we receive back
100 fold. Get back to your
roots. Renew your life force
and spirit. Watch out world.
Here I come!

Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
You are doing great. Not
much change is needed.
Stay with your major goals.
Your positive attitude has
set you in an excellent direc-
tion. The holidays will be
great and very exciting for
you. You have overcome life.
People are beginning to tell
you how young you look.
Could anyone be doing bet-
ter? I don't think so.

Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Family matters will take cen-


ter stage the next few
weeks. Stay true to yourself,
but pay attention to others
who need emotional sup-
port. Stay in a festive mood.
A bright attitude brings
cheer to any occasion. Glad-
ly give your support to those
who need you. Return love
received with love given.
This justifies your life.

Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
Stay focused on your main
creative projects. The uni-
verse will reward you with
much increase. Your power
of observation is especially
strong now. Let the holidays
be a time of rejoicing and
celebration for the many
blessings this year. Open up
the heart even more and
know that the coming year
will be the best ever.

Keeping your Christmas tree fresh; Santa explained


Hello, smart shoppers.
Check out my
cookbook special at
the column's end. Need help
setting up the artificial tree?
Call (772) 812-5168.
When buying a live tree,
they will cut some off the
bottom, but you must do it
again; fresh trees seal up with
sap in no time. Fill the stand
with lukewarm water for the
first time, to which you have
added one aspirin for a tree
up to 7 feet and two for a
larger tree. Add cold water


25


Facilities conveniently located in:


once or twice a day thereafter.
If the water is gone, the trunk
will seal and the tree will die.
I'd like to share with you
how I handled the "I wants"
that go on and on with
children at Christmas. I
explained that many children
throughout the world didn't
have anything, so moms and
dads who could afford it sent
Santa money for toys their
children wanted so then
Santa could give presents to
the poor children who had
nothing. Now you can


ROMANCING

with the
Grammy Guru

negotiate, choices can be
made and there will be no
disappointments, since they
know how much money you
can afford to send Santa.
Makes sense, doesn't it?
Common sense tells us that
Santa doesn't have time to set
up a tree and he certainly


doesn't have time to wrap
gifts, especially in the same
paper your kids saw you buy!
In my family, we celebrate
both Christmas Eve and
Christmas day. Of course we
do, we're Italian! How else can
we become martyrs? Gifts are
exchanged on Christmas Eve,
both to family members and
the kids. Presents to be
exchanged are wrapped and
placed under the tree. Since
Santa hasn't come yet
"nobody" knows what he will
bring. Try it my way. It worked

for us through four kids and
they kept the faith longer.
By the way, (God, forgive
me) when my kids said their
friends' parents told them
otherwise, I told my kids they
(the parents) were liars. Now
that I have confessed my sin,
let's get to the recipes.
This week, we'll cover a new
chocolate chip cookie recipe
(mix up most of the batters
now and freeze them, quite a
timesaver). Be aware that
when I recommend Smart
Balance butter substitute,
which works great in place of
butter or margarine, I'm not
talking about "light." It is too
soft and will not work.

ULTIMATE
CHOCOLATE CHIP
COOKIE
This is a superb recipe and
slightly different from the
original.
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons
unsifted, bleached all-
purpose flour
1/2-teaspoon salt
1/2-teaspoon baking soda
1-1/2 sticks unsalted
butter (no substitutes),
melted and cooled 'til
warm (very important)
1 cup brown sugar, 1/2
light and 1/2 dark, firmly
packed
1/2-cup granulated sugar


1 large egg plus I yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1-2 cups chocolate chips
1/2-cup chopped pecans
or walnuts

Heat oven to 325 degrees.
Adjust oven racks to upper
and lower middle positions.
Mix flour, salt and baking
soda together in a medium
bowl, set aside.
Using an electric mixer, mix
cooled butter and sugars until
thoroughly blended. Mix in
egg, yolk and vanilla. Add dry
ingredients, mix until just
combined. Stir in chips and
nuts.
Chill dough about 1/2 hour.
Shape teaspoon-size pieces of
dough into a ball and place
on a cookie sheet 2 inches
apart. Do not flatten.
Bake, swapping cookie
sheets halfway through
baking until cookies are light
golden brown and outer
edges start to harden. Centers
will still be soft and puffy, 12
to 18 minutes. Dough canbe
refrigerated for two days and
frozen for two months.

school, she came home with

Golfers needs met


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST. LUCIE The
Port St. Lucie Sunset Rotary's
first golf collection program
received a tremendous
response from the commu-
nity.
The program was created
to collect used golf equip-
ment to benefit Port St. Lucie
high school's boys' golf team,
who had been sharing a
small collection of clubs.
Larry Breault, Rotary sec-
retary, and Tony Malizia, golf
coach at the school, coordi-
nated this effort together to
help these students in their
quest to learn patience, com-
mitment, and networking
skills through the mastery
and competitive play of golf.
With people responding
from as far away as Vero
Beach, Rotary members
scrambled to set up collec-
tion locations. The collection
resulted in about 900 golf
clubs, eight sets of women's

1/2-teaspoon vanilla
1 stick (1/2-cup) butter or

3/4-cup chopped
walnuts
Sift together flour, baking
soda, salt and cinnamon; set

Beat egg together with
sugars and vanilla. Add


clubs, 35 golf bags, 1,000 golf
balls, and other assorted golf
paraphernalia.
The equipment will go to
the Port St. Lucie High School
Golf Program. The excess
equipment not used by the
school will go to the newly
formed program, The First
Tee of the Treasure Coast.
The First Tee provides young
people of all backgrounds an
opportunity to develop life-
enhancing values such as
confidence, perseverance
and judgment through golf
and character education. Go

In addition to collecting
equipment, the PSL Sunset

Recreational golfers feel the difference of a professional course


W ek in, week out we
watch the pros ply
their trade on
perfectly manicured and set
up courses all over the
world.
We often hear how
difficult it would be for a
recreational golfer to play
well on one of these tracks.
If given the opportunity,
how well do you think you'd
play? You may be surprised
at the answer I found.
I've had the opportunity
to play a PGA tour venue


prior to the event during a
media outing. This is
usually a couple of weeks
prior to the event and things
aren't quite ready.
When I was in high
school, I played at Bay Hill a
few times the weekend or
two after the event. Just a
week or so ago, I got to play
Disney's Magnolia Golf
Course, just a couple of days
after the pros had left.
Playing a course set up to
challenge touring profes-
sionals is so much different

that what we see every day.
A course hosting a tour
event is on the brink of
disaster. The greens are
stressed from being cut so
close and rolling so quickly.
The rough is not only long,
but usually lush, just
waiting to grab your club
and send a shot spiraling
toward doom.
The Magnolia Course at
Disney is not known for
being a brutal golf course.
Fifty-one weeks out of the
year it's a resort course,
designed and set up like
everything on Disney
property, to make visitors
happy. The one week out of
the year that it gets to show
its teeth, it does.
The course is woven
through an abundance of
fragrant, blossoming
magnolia trees. There are
numerous water hazards
and large rolling greens.
From the tees the pros


use, the course plays to just
over 7,500 yards. With stout
length and water at every
turn, the course is a test of
strength and accuracy.
I had no intention of
playing the course from the
pro tees. In fact, the starter
will warn most golfers
against playing from them. I
chose the next set of tees,
with a still-challenging
length of nearly 7,100 yards.
I'm not used to playing
course of this length.
Something about hitting
long irons, hybrids or
fairway woods into almost
every green makes my
palms sweat and raises my
score to a humbling num-
ber.
When I watch the pros
play, one thing I notice is
how far their balls roll. I
used to think it had more to
do with the way they strike
the ball, but it has just as
much to do with the course
conditions. The fairways the
pros enjoy each week are
hard and fast. Magnolia's
fairways were more firm
and rolled faster than the
greens I usually play.
I quickly discover a solid
drive that found the fairway


bound and rolled to dis-
tances I am not used to. I
quickly gained 30 or more
yards on my tee shots. The
problems came when I
missed those inviting
fairways. Drop your ball in
this rough and you better
keep an eye on it.
Bermuda rough doesn't
have to be long to take a toll
on your score. Balls that
find the rough quickly stop
and disappear, nestling to
the bottom. Getting your
club on the ball in the rough
is not an easy task.
Controlling the shot when
you do is another matter. I
hit some knuckle balls out
of the rough and paid a
steep price.
Just because you find the
fairway doesn't mean you've
won. The greens the pros
face are firm and lightning
fast. Not only does one need
to know how far it is to the
flag, you need to know
where to put the ball on the
green so that you're not
facing a downhill putt. I
found out that it's much
better to have a 10-foot putt
up the hill than a 4-footer
down the hill.
Even short putts are scary,


especially if you need to
start the ball outside of the
hole to allow for the break.
If you try to "firm" it in and
miss, you could find
yourself two or three times
farther away than when you
started.
Chipping and pitching are
even more fun. Missing the
green in the rough and
trying to stop that chip near
the hole is a true challenge.
I have an even greater
appreciation for how
talented Phil Mickelson is
after a day trying to get up
and down around these
greens.
In all it was a fun experi-
ence. Toss out a few disas-
trous holes, and I played
better than my handicap.
The guys on tour are truly
good. But give us the same
conditions and we'll find
that it's easier for us to play
better than normal, at least
some of the time.
