P HOW WEIRD
IS THAT?!
S SEAN MCCARTHY



pend 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 reuters.con: UK
ministry shuts down UFO
unit
After more than 50 years
of service, Britain's Min-
istry of Defense has shut
down its UFO investiga-
tion unit, saying it could
no longer justify the cost
of running the service.
The ministry said it
found no evidence of a
threat to Britain or proof
of the existence of extra-
terrestrials, despite the
public sending thousands
of reports of UFOs to a
ministry hotline and e-
mail address.
The dedicated UFO
officer who dealt with the
reports has been re-
assigned to another post,
saving 44,000 pounds
($73,000) a year.
From usatoday.com:
When stealing, don't leave
identification
A suspected shoplifter
was found when, after
dropping her purse at the
scene of a crime, she
called police to claim her
bag.
The woman allegedly set
off an anti-theft alarm as
she fled a Family Dollar
store. She dropped her
purse in a parking lot
while being chased. When
she went to the police
station to retrieve her lost
purse, she was promptly
arrested.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY Dozens
walked last week along Virginia
Avenue in Fort Pierce to increase
awareness that AIDS continues to be
a major health concern, but many of
them also had personal motivation.
Terri Ann Palumbo, a Fort Pierce
resident, joined many on World AIDS
Day in writing about people she
knew who have died from AIDS or
have the disease.
"For Stanton, Freddy, Joe Lawrence
and so many more," wrote Ms.
Palumbo, a former actress in New


York, who is now executive assistant
to County Commissioner Chris
Dzadovsky.
Stanton, she said, was someone
she worked with in NewYork. He died
in 1989, long before modern AIDS
drugs were available.
She also worked at a theater with
Joe Lawrence. She found out recently
from his brother that he died three
years ago from AIDS.
Michelle Daniels, who now edu-
cates people about AIDS in St. Lucie
County, lost her brother, Kelvin
Coats, to AIDS in 1993. He found out
he had the disease in 1987, she said.
She said she tries to help families


avoid such a tragedy by focusing on
prevention education.
"There's a lot of misinformation
out there," she said. "Knowledge is
power."
Many involved in the march said
there's still a stigma associated with
AIDS and wore shirts with the mes-
sage "HIV doesn't discriminate. Peo-
ple do."
Veronica Tempone, who is with the
AIDS Research and Treatment Cen-
ter, had a cousin who died in New Jer-
sey in 2007. She said AIDs is an
unpopular topic, but information

FORT PIERCE Last
month, St. Lucie County
residents had the opportu-
nity to learn about the
influence of Native Ameri-
cans on the development
of the county.
To celebrate Native
American Month, the
Seminole Tribe and the St.
Lucie County Regional
History Center presented a
Native American History
exhibit at Indian River
State College.
Brynn Batsche, educa-
tion specialist at the St.
Lucie County Regional
History Center, said many
may not know that Fort


Pierce came into being
because of the Seminoles.
A fort was established
off what is now Indian
River Drive during the sec-
ond Seminole War from
1835 to 1842, Ms. Batsche
said.
William T. Sherman was
intent on capturing Wild
Cat, a Seminole warrior,
she said.
The Seminoles and the
U.S. government never
signed a peace treaty, but
"technically, we are not at
war," said Elizabeth Low-
man, oral history coordi-
nator of the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki
Museum at the Big Cypress
Reservation.

From page Al
Now there's a Seminole
reservation west of Fort
Pierce in St. Lucie Coun-
ty.
It's not open to the
public, but eventually,
people may have the
opportunity to visit a
ranch at the reservation,
she said.
There's also a history of
the Ais Native Americans
in the area, Ms. Batsche
said.


When the Spanish
arrived, they were unsuc-
cessful in converting the
Ais to Christianity, Ms.
Batsche said.
By the middle 1700s,
the Ais ceased to exist
because of disease and
warfare, she said.
History shows the first
Thanksgiving was actual-
ly celebrated near St.
Augustine, she said.
But that's been largely
forgotten because the
English wrote the history
that is taught in schools,
she said.

An executive committee
was formed in 2007 to begin
planning the celebration and
is now seeking memorabilia
from residents relating to the
city's history.
Richard McAfoos, a mem-
ber of the committee, scoffs
at idea the city doesn't really


have much of a history com-
pared to the neighboring
towns of Fort Pierce and Stu-

When people say that, he
said, he refers to a 1961 Mus-

"Those are now consid-
ered vintage vehicles," he
said.

and change, he said.
Port St. Lucie was incorpo-
rated on April 27, 1961, and
did not have a single resident
at the time.
For a good part of its histo-
ry, the city, which now has
more than 120,000 residents,
was truly a "company town,"
he said.
General Development
Corp., which designed and
developed the city, appoint-
ed the early mayors and city
council members, he said.
It was only in the 1970s
that William McChesney,
who was originally appoint-
ed a council member,
became the first elected
mayor.
Although the early council
members were all GDC
employees, Ms. Baranski
said, she felt based on her
research, they "had their
hearts in the right places"
although they also looked
out for GDC's interests.
The transition of Port St.
Lucie from a company town
to a city run by its residents
and its tremendous growth
in the succeeding years were
two major phases in the city's
history, Mc McAfoos said.
In the 1970s, Ms. Baranski
said, the city government
was very limited in what it

SFellow 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
S 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 "My Cu
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your expectant
customers.

IS
ic


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.
'ion and Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
ItiOn 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.

as zoning.
The city would collect
millions in tax revenue and
never spend it, she said.
A law in effect at the
time, she said, allowed only
10 percent of revenue car-
ried over to be spent the
following year.
When in later years, the
city wanted to undertake
major projects, the law was
changed, she said.
Many of the early elected
council members were
retirees who were very con-
servative, she said.
Ms. Baranski, a former
newspaper reporter who
later became director of the
city's Community Relations
Department, said she
attended one meeting
where they discussed a
request by one council
member to be reimbursed
$8 for traveling to Tallahas-
see.
He spent 45 minutes try-
ing to justify it, with one
councilwoman question-
ing every penny, she said.
For most of the early his-
tory of the city, she said, it
contracted with the St.
Lucie County Sheriff's


Foundation, Santa

raising money for child


Office for law enforcement.
Even when the Police
Department was formed in
the 1980s, Mayor McChes-
ney felt the city was too
young to have one, she
said.
During those years, Ms.
Baranski said, the terms of
council members changed
several times from two to
four years and then back to
two years. Now they serve
four year terms.
While the celebration is
only geared for the 50 years
Port St. Lucie has been
incorporated, Mr. McAfoos
said, the area has prior his-
tory.
Ais Native Americans
once occupied the area,
according to the Port St.
Lucie Historical Society.
And in the 1890s, a com-
munity called Spruce Bluff
was formed. It at one point
had a school, but by the
early 1900s, most residents
left because a severe winter
freeze in 1894 discouraged
citrus and pineapple grow-
ers, according to the socie-
ty.
The celebration of the
more modern Port St. Lucie
will include Ms. Baranski's
book, the development of a
history docudrama and a
week of events from April
23 to April 30, 2011.

Law would protect public

To the editor:

I would like to make the people of the Treasure Coast
aware of a serious issue facing our state legislature that will
affect the safety of the public for years to come.
Earlier this year, the Florida Legislature adopted a historic
law requiring that a DNA sample must be collected from all
those arrested for felonies at the time of arrest. The DNA
samples will be added to the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement's DNA database.
This will be an invaluable tool for law enforcement
throughout Florida. State Rep. William Snyder of Stuart and
State Sen. Steve Oelrich of Gainesville, a retired sheriff, co-
sponsored this excellent law.
Unfortunately, the legislature did not appropriate the
money necessary to implement the law. Until the legislature
funds this important reform, the people of Florida will be
deprived of the benefits that the law could make possible.
I urge the people of the Treasure Coast to contact their
state senators and representatives to demand that this law
be fully funded.

Ken J. Mascara
Sheriff of St. Lucie County

Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous
statements. Statements offact will be checked for
accuracy.



Learn to share the road

As more traffic is found on all major roads, we all have to be
more aware of people using bike lanes to ride and walk during
all hours of the day.
The white stripe on the side of the road is for bike riders and
pedestrians, if you weren't knowledgable of that fact, know it
now.
The other week, one of the familiar sights on U.S. 1 is a bike
rider and his little Jack Russell terrier riding on the back of the
bike or running along side of it (a service dog). He was on his
way home from getting groceries, blinking red taillights, reflec-
tors and headlights on in front.
Along comes a woman from behind and hits him, missing
the dog but causing him many internal injuries and road
scrapes on his body, scattering his groceries all over.
When this women finally came back to see what damage she
had done to the (mail box) she hit, she was more concerned
about the damage to her car than the victim, his bike, groceries
or dog.
The local sheriff's department, upon arriving, wasn't too
helpful. It was out of their jurisdiction. Only the Florida High-
way Patrol could handle this case because it happened on U.S.
1.
Maybe it's time for all of us to wake up to what kind of driving
skills we need to improve, or give up our privilege to drive
before someone else is hurt or killed

Still unemployed?

The government watchdog overseeing economic stimulus
spending says the White House was far too quick to take credit
for saving or creating jobs.
Earl Devaney, whose agency collected and released the data,
said the White House claims are flawed and there is no way to
justify job creation.
President Obama trumpeted job figures, saying they prove
that the administration is on track to save or create 3.5 million
jobs by the end of next year, but the unemployment rate has
risen to record highs.

Government vs. health

When politicians overrule doctors in matters of health care,
the results can be a giant step backward, as shown by the gov-
ernment agency called the U.S. Preventative Services Task
Force, which has issued guidelines concerning mammograms.
The resulting confusion about the risks of breast cancer has
been widely criticized by many, but especially by breast cancer

How to find, keep track of file names


his week, I thought
we would talk about
how everything in the
computer is connected.
By connected, I don't
mean by wires and other
mechanical means, but
internally, through the
computer's filing system.
Often, I hear people say a
particular file (picture or
text) "is in my word
processor" or "it's in my e-
mail program." That
implies the file in question
can be accessed only with
that particular program.
Not so.
Let me explain. Each
program on your computer
is capable of opening
different types of files.
For instance, word
processors, such as
Microsoft Word orWorks
are for working with text
files, while photo editors,
such as Paint Shop Pro and
Photoshop, work with
pictures.
The files themselves are
not stored within the
program they are stored
somewhere on the hard
drive available to any
program capable of
working with them. That
means you can share files
with many other programs.


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY


All you really need to
know is where on your
hard drive the files really
live.
"c:\documents and
settings\owner\my
documents\filename.doc"
- This is an example of a
typical file name, complete
with its path on the hard
drive. The path tells how to
get to a file's location on
the hard drive.
Let's take a closer look:
The c:\ indicates what
drive the file is stored on.
Each disk drive, your
floppy drive (typically a),
your hard drive (c) and
your CD-ROM (typically d)
will have a letter assigned
to it. This is how to tell the
computer what drive you
are working with.
The next part of our
path, "documents and
settings\", is a folder or
directory.
Just like the manila
folders you use in a file
cabinet keep files organ-


ized, directories on your
computer organize your
computer files. Each
directory is separated by a
back slash (\) and you can
have directories within
directories.
In our example, the "my
documents" folder is in the
"owner" folder, which is in
the "documents and
settings" folder, which is
on the c drive.
The last part of our path
is the actual file name.
A typical file name
comes in two parts, the
name, separated by a dot
and the extension. The
name is what we call the
file when we saved it (a
fairly important thing to
note when saving). And the
extension tells the comput-
er what kind of file it is so it
knows what kind of
program can open it.
Once you know the path
to a particular file, you can
access it from most of your
favorite programs.
For instance, say you got
a picture e-mailed to you
and you want to use that
picture in a letter you are
writing with your word
processor.
The first step in getting
the picture into your letter


happens when you save
the picture from e-mail.
Note the full path and file
name when you save it and
you can access it any time.
When you are ready to
import your picture, use
the insert menu (typical on
most word processors) to
load your picture. When
the dialogue box comes up
asking what file you want
to insert, type in the file's
full path and filename.
Start with the drive letter,
end with the file name
(dot) extension, separate
your directories with back
slashes and then click OK.
You should have your
picture inserted into your
letter.
As you can see, the path
and file name is enor-
mously important. So often
I hear, "it's on my hard
drive, but I don't know
where" or "that file is in my
word processor."
If you pay attention to
what name and directory
the file is saved under
when you save it, you won't
have this problem.

Cutting out the stress of the holidays


The holidays are
supposed to be times
of joy, but for too
many of us, they have
become so stressful that
we dread the reminders
the holidays are coming.
Difficult economic times
have only added to the
worry about the things we
need to and want to do.
While some holiday
stress may be inevitable,
there are some "stress-
busters" that can help you
keep the stress level down
so that you can enjoy the
holidays more.
We all play an expecta-
tions game. We want the
holidays to be Hallmark
memories and Kodak
moments, and the reality
is that human beings don't
always act and react the
way we'd like them to.
Experts at the Mayo
Clinic suggest several
things we can do to make
the stress level manage-
able and keep us from
getting overwhelmed and
depressed.
Acknowledge your
feelings: If you are griev-
ing, it's normal to feel sad.
This year, I'll be moving, so
I'll be busy, but there's a
layer of sadness at leaving
the home we shared. I
know that this will be a
difficult time for me and I
am scaling back. I don't
plan to send a lot of cards
and give a lot of gifts this
year; I'm not up to it.
Don't force yourself to be


happy. You may feel better
if you seek support from
friends, the community,
religious organizations or
charities that help others.
Helping others often
makes us forget our own
problems and put them in
perspective.
Be realistic: As families
change and grow, tradi-
tions may change, as well.
If your entire family can't
be together anymore,
invite friends to join you
for the day. Share phone
calls, e-mails and photo-
graphs to stay close to
family that's far away.
Set differences aside:
This is not a good time to
discuss long-standing
problems. Everyone is
stressed and everyone
should try to ignore small
problems.
Stick to a budget:
Before you shop, decide
how much you can afford
to spend on gifts and
entertaining; budget for
decorations and food, as
well. Give homemade gifts,
narrow your list and agree
only to buy gifts for the
children. Try a family gift
exchange, where each
person buys for one other
person. Maybe you could


all donate gift money to a
worthy cause. If you get
into debt, you'll be dealing
with the bills and the stress
for months to come.
If you shop early, you
can spread the spending
throughout the year and
get things on sale. You can
give pretty IOUs that
promise gifts of yourself;
walking a friend's dog,
babysitting and other
things that don't cost
money but are from the
heart.
Children can give them
to parents and parents to
kids: a day in the park, a
trip to the zoo or the
beach, a special day just
for that child.
Plan ahead: Get a plan
of action going before the
holidays start. Decide
when you'll shop, when
you'll cook, when you'll
entertain. Plan menus and
make shopping lists to cut
down on runs to the store
at the busiest times.
Learn to say no: Only
agree to do the things you
really want to do, unless
it's impossible to say no,
like to your boss! Don't feel
guilty about saying no.
Forget being perfect:
Your domestic diva should
take a hike! So the cake
falls! The kids act up! Your
mother-in-law criticizes
everything! You do the best
you can. Kids will remem-
ber happy times, not
perfect cakes. Laugh about
it and make a funny story.


Maybe let them help bake
a new one or make easy-
bake cookies, instead.
Don't try to do it all,
either. Have guests bring a
dish or decide not to make
everything from scratch.
Older kids can help, too.
If you asked a lot of
adults what they remem-
ber about the holidays, it
usually comes down to
family, both good and bad.
What people remember
are experiences. Maybe
you won't find the "per-
fect" gifts or cook a
"perfect" meal, but if you
enjoy the holidays, taking
pleasure in the things you
do and not worrying about
the things you can't do,
your family will enjoy
them, too.

According to the police

From page Al

Tuesday, the morning after
the Port St. Lucie City Coun-
cil voted 4-1 to accept Martin
Memorial's bid to take over
the fitness center.
Hospital Corp. of America,
which had operated it for 11
years, announced last month
it intended to end its lease
and close the center as of
Dec. 7 because it was not
breaking even financially.
However, HCA decided to
keep the center open and
rehire three employees it
intended to lay off, pending a
new lease agreement with
the city.
HCA asked the city to
reduce the monthly rent
from $7,000 to $6,000.
Also, HCA planned to be
more aggressive in promot-
ing membership and was
considering a small increase
in membership fees, said
Jana Eschbach, director of
media relations for St. Lucie
Medical Center.


jury duty
Jesus Christ was called
for jury duty in Jefferson
County, but was sent home
for being disruptive.
Court officials were
skeptical at first when a
potential juror submitted a
name change form with
"Jesus Christ" on it. But the
59-year-old Birmingham
woman, who previously
went by Dorothy Lola
Killingworth, assured the
presiding judge that was
her name.
Christ was sent to Judge
Clyde Jones's courtroom
for a criminal case, but was
excused because she was
disruptive, court officials
said. Instead of answering
questions, she was asking
them, a court employee in
Jones's office said.

But the Port St. Lucie City
Council accepted Martin
Memorial's proposal to pay
rent of about $3,324 month-
ly.
Gary Cantrell, chief execu-
tive officer of St. Lucie Med-
ical Center, called the deci-
sion "unfortunate, adding
that St. Lucie Medical was
committed to re-establishing
the fitness center.
The decision "will result in
us having to make decisions
regarding staff reductions in
these tough economic
times," he said.
However, Mr. Samples
said, Martin Memorial
intends to keep the existing
staff, provided the employ-
ees meet Martin Memorial's
personnel requirements.
Port St. Lucie Mayor Patri-
cia Christensen could not be
reached for comment on
why she favored Martin
Memorial.
Vice Mayor Jack Kelly
favored accepting HCAs pro-
posal.
He said at the meeting he
received many calls from
members favoring HCAs


telephone sex line
In an embarrassing
blunder, Gov. Charlie Crist
mistakenly directed
parents of uninsured
children to call a toll-free
sex line.
People calling the
governor's office heard an
on-hold recording of Crist
promoting the toll-free
Florida KidCare line.
Except two numbers were
transposed. Anyone calling
the number Crist gave out
was told to call another
number. The recording on
that second phone number
begins, "Hey there sexy
guys" and says the caller
can have a more graphic
conversation with a
woman for $2.99 a minute.

During the past 11 years,
he said during the meeting,
the city received no com-
plaints.
In taking over the civic
center, Martin Memorial is
continuing its 20-year histo-
ry of running such facilities,
Mr. Samples said.
It has operated five cen-
ters.
Martin Memorial will not
raise membership rates for at
least six months, according
to a letter of intent submitted
to the city.
Details were being worked
out this past week as to
exactly what day Martin
Memorial would officially
take control of the center.
Mr. Samples said details
are also being worked out
regarding membership
plans, but he doesn't antici-
pate the center's estimated
400 members will have to
buy new memberships ini-
tially.
"We want to make the
transition as smooth as pos-
sible for members," he said.

From page A6
survivors who recognize
they have conquered one of
life's most stressful experi-
ences.

Healthcare means
tax increases
When bureaucrats dis-
cuss their plans for the gov-
ernment to get more
involved in the country's
health care, they often say
everyone should "con-
tribute their fair share"
which is code for "tax
increases."
The public is becoming
increasingly skeptical
because the cost for a gov-
ernment take-over is esti-
mated in the range of $1 tril-
lion to $1.5 trillion. Any
politician who would admit
to that number would be
toast.

A parental reminder
To people who mistreat
their children: Just remem-
ber, one day they will be
grown and they will
remember what you did to
them. If they are to young to
remember, they will feel it.

Buy out of pay off?
Why am I concluding that
the AARP support was also
"bought off" or "paid off'?"
It seems to me the Sharp-
ton and Jackson blackmail
tactic of "race-baiting" is
being copied by the
Democrats and now
employed as "legislative
blackmail."
Support the plan and we
(the Democratic Congress)
will throw money at you by
enacting legislation favor-
able to AARP

TRAVEL


Cnising is best, easiest,


most economical way to travel


Did you know there
are cruises designed
to suit nearly every
interest and personal
preference?
With so many choices
large ship cruising on
contemporary ships have
an incredible selection of
entertaining facilities.
There are luxury cruises,
where you can be pam-
pered by white-gloved staff;
classic ships that evoke the
time-honored traditions of
original cruising. Special
interest or exploration
cruises, specializing in
unique destinations with
consideration to cultural
enrichment or river voyages
to the heart of a preferred
destination.
Like I said, nearly every
taste of style can be accom-
modated by a cruise.
There are cruises that
feature light adventure
expeditions to unique
frontiers such as Antarctica,
the Amazon rain forest or
the African Serengeti. Or,
take some time to discover
historical legacies closer to
home with informative
itineraries to New England,
French Canada, colonial
America and America's
rivers, among others.
Experienced travelers
have choices, too with
destination-focused cruises
that specialize in culturally
rich ports of call with
itineraries devoted to
revealing such historic,
world class treasures as the
antiquities of classical
Greece, the Polynesian
paradise of Hawaii, the
enchanted splendor of
Norwegian Fjords or the
castles and museums of
Europe's rivers.
There are many whose
ideas of a perfect vacation
include the non-stop fun
and sun of a tropical resort-
style cruise to the
Caribbean, where a variety
of island cultures and
cuisines can be sampled
while relaxing your worries
and cares away.
To make this even better,
there are a lot of cruise lines
that offer special Themedd"
cruises, with entertainment
ranging from culinary
delights to jazz festivals and
classic music concerts to
golfing at sea.
Some cruise lines offer
something very unique:
learning onboard. To help
travelers discover the spirit
that can only be evoked by
traveling, many cruise lines
have extensive educational
programs available.
Whether you want to
learn how to use your
Blackberry and impress
your children or grandchil-
dren or learn what foods
compliment a bottle of
Chianti, there are a lot of
cruise lines that offer such
educational programs.
There are lectures
highlighting the history and
sights of the ports you will
be visiting. You could even
take part in special presen-
tations from Renaissance
art to strategic financial

economical way to sample
an array of new destina-
tions, try all the things you
have dreamed of doing or
choose to do nothing, with
the ease of not having to
keep packing and unpack-


planning to connoisseur
secrets of classic French
cuisine.
Cruises, as a whole, visit
more than 500 ports of call
worldwide. This includes
almost every destination
accessible by water. You can
start your cruise from one
of the more than 30 North
American ports or travel to
an exotic destination to
start your dream cruise
vacation. The best thing
about cruising is you have
choices and you only have
to unpack once. The ships
take you to different ports
of call where you can stay
for a day or so then hop
back on and head off to
another fun, exciting, exotic
port.
For those who are more
active, you can join an
exercise or dance class or
one of the sports contests
the cruise of your choice
may offer. You can practice
your tennis, basketball, golf
or, on some cruise lines,
practice surfing, all
onboard.
For those who are
onboard just to relax,
stretch out in the sauna,
watch a feature film, be
entertained by a Broadway
style show or almost
anything else you can think
of.
Keep in mind you do not
have to participate if you
don't want to. Remember it
is your vacation. You can do
everything or absolutely
nothing. One of the best
things about being at sea is
it tends to give a feeling of
total freedom that no land
based resort can offer.
Onboard there is plenty
of room; in fact it may take
you a couple days to find
everything that is available.
There is so much to do in
the ports of call, you may
have a hard time choosing.
You can take the time to
explore on your own or take
part in a guided tour.
Guided tours are more
often than not referred to as
shore excursions in the
cruising community. You
can take a shore excursion
to ancient ruins or take a
raft ride over river rapids,
go horseback riding, climb
a waterfall or even a
pyramid, learn to parasail
or windsurf, test your speed
with a wave runner, swim
with dolphins or simply
relax on the beach.
In my opinion, cruising is
the best, easiest and most

New Permanent Teeth...A Life Changing Experience


Modern Advances in
dental technology and
surgical techniques mean
now, more and more peo-
ple who have lost their
natural teeth can live
fuller, richer, and happier
lives. They allow the per-
son to go to favorite
restaurants and order
what they want to eat,
instead of what they can
eat. Dental implants can
restore a person's ability
to eat, smile, kiss and
talk with confidence and
comfort.




A dental implant is a
substitute tooth root that
provides a stable founda-
tion for replacement teeth.
The implant is anchored


into the jawbone through
a process where the bone
and the implant become
integrated, providing the
same stability as natural
teeth. This means that
replacement teeth can
look, feel, and function
just like real teeth!
Since dental implants,
like teeth, are embedded
in the jaw, the painful
chewing associated with
removable teeth is elimi-
nated. Unlike traditional
dentures, implants sup-
ports dentures so that
there is little pressure on
the gums.

Pwaw l6ly^^l


Additionally, dental
implants can be used to
solve a variety of dental
problems. For example,
implants can be used to
replace a single missing
tooth instead of making a
traditional bridge. They
can be placed to support
an entire bridge where the
natural teeth are missing,
or they can be used to give
the patient a better fitting
denture so they can elimi-
nate the problems tradi-
tionally associated with
dentures.
Best of all, you'll be
able to smile more natu-
rally and be comfortable
in normal activities such
as talking, laughing, smil-
ing and eating.
Explore dental im-
plants as a solution to
your personal dental


- ^ -^


Call Dr. Rankin today to
schedule your FREE per-
sonal consultation and
examination. Dental
implants can help you
smile and eat with confi-
dence again!

Motown comes
to our town

If you like to start your
New Year's Eve celebration a
little early, come on down to
the Sunrise Theatre on Dec.
30. The Temptations, the
group that brought us "The
Way You Do, The Things You
Do," "Get Ready" and other
hits, comes to the theater
for an 8 p.m. show.
Otis Williams, an original
singer with the group, still
performs with them.
They're still known for what
they call "straight-up soul,"
and that high tenor sound.

PORT ST. LUCIE I've
been trying to gain weight
after an adverse reaction
to a medication caused
sudden weight loss.
Nothing I did worked
until I visited Europa
Pizza & Pasta and met
Philip Seskin, who insist-
ed my daughter Kimberly
and I try dish after dish
until we knew what
Europa was all about.
Now after eating the
huge amount of leftovers
I'm having trouble but-
toning my pants!
Philip, his brother Joey
and their parents became
the new owners of Europa
about six months ago
with Joey being the
incredible chef.
The senior Mr. Seskin is
the owner and pharma-
cist of Oceanside Phar-
macy on Hutchinson
Island and has been there
for many years.
Europa is located in the
Village Square shopping
center, a strip mall about
1/2-mile north of Village
Green Drive on the west
side of the highway and
seats about 40.

she was exhausted. I
enjoyed a glass of wine,
while Kimberly thorough-
ly enjoyed the coffee fresh
brewed especially for her,
while we perused the
extensive menu.
Pizza may be the main
thing visitors think of, but
Europa has a complete
menu from appetizers to
wonderful desserts.
Enjoying the fresh-


made garlic knots and
looking at the menu
selections, we decided to
pass on an appetizer and
head straight to the din-
ner salad.
Large, with fresh
Romaine lettuce topped
with sliced cucumbers,
tomatoes, sliced black
olives and bits of red,
roasted peppers it looked
like a Christmas salad.
A slice of their pizza,
one of the best I've ever


tasted, and a small, whole
white pizza were served
while we waited for our
dinners.
Kim chose chicken
Francese over penne
pasta. A whole chicken
breast prepared to order,
topped more pasta than
anyone could finish, was
delicious.

Playwright directs own holiday play

Entertainment writer
FORT PIERCE Part
of the joy of the holiday
season is the familiar
and the traditional.
For entertainment, we
return each year to "The
Nutcracker" and "It's a
Wonderful Life." Some-
times, though, it's inter-
esting to try something
new.
This year, David
Moberg, director of the-
ater at Indian River State
College, has written a
play for the season,
"Christmas Doesn't Love
Me Anymore." It will be
performed from Dec. 17- \
19 at the Wynne Black
Box Theatre. Mr. Moberg
spoke about the joys of
playwriting and of
directing his own work.
"I wanted to write a
feel-good Christmas
play, a Hallmark-movie
kind of play reaffirming
the value of family and
friends," he said. "I
thought of the title first
and thought it was really

Aries-March 21-April 19
Your inner search for wisdom
makes you a wise soul. It
defines your passion for the
truth. No one has stronger
feelings. It helps in your pur-
suit and understanding of
the deeper mysteries. This
quest is the main source of
your happiness, more impor-
tant than earthly riches. This
is why we look up to you as
our leader.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Your strong belief in doing
things right is the major fac-
tor in your successful pursuit
of life. People like to be
around you, just to see what
you are going to do next.
When you get that "right"
feeling, nothing can slow you
down or stop you. You are
truly a kind soul and great
holiday blessings are upon
you.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
Continue to have a renewed
sense of hope in the New
Year. You have earned it for
hanging in there this year
and never giving up. Stay
focused on your most impor-
tant visions, desires and pas-
sions. Refuse to let the world
or negative influences pull
you off course. Continue to
speak your truth. Much good
is on the way.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
Your great love of life will
always pull you through chal-
lenging times. Strive for bal-
ance. It will give you the
renewed strength to keep on
keeping on. Refuse to let
yourself be burned out now.
Fall is the harvest time of life
on earth. It should be a time
of plenty for all to end the
year and begin the new with
greater blessings.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
Your positive attitude is con-
tagious. It's hard to say "no"
to Leo. Your inner strength is
the light that guides us on
our path of truth and helps
us in our travels. This is the
universal gift given at birth.
Thanks for being there. You
know what will work. May
life's greatest victories come
back to you as your just
reward.

Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Your natural passion for life
is a positive influence on
everyone. Keep a close focus
on your main goals and pri-

orities. If your heart isn't in it,
don't do it. The upcoming
holidays will be filled with
many opportunities to share
your love and glad tidings.
Give freely and spirit will
pour out the well of happi-
ness back on you.

Libra-Sept. 23-Oct. 22
The new learning about life
this year is paying off. Stress
has gone way down. You
worry less. You are more
relaxed and centered. The list
goes on. Your vision quest is
highly focused and you make
wise choices. It doesn't get
much better than this.
Thanks for teaching us all
about balance, peace, love
and light.

Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Kind words of assurance to
others in need go a long way
toward building cooperation
when life's challenges are
upon you. You are never
alone. Your great heart is an
open channel for the spirit


world to flood you with grace
and guidance. Just be open
to and ask for it and all chal-
lenges will be met with ease.

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Do something really creative
for yourself as a reward for all
your hard work and tenacity.
Let your patience, trust and
faith in the universe continue
to guide you. It is your true,
inner light. When not sure,
wait. The truth will always be
revealed. Today is all we
have. Make today the best
day of your life.

Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
You live life with such a won-
derful spirit of love. When
you turn within and listen
closely for wise answers to
life's challenges, you are at
your best. The joy in your
beautiful heart is a treasure.
This wonderful heritage will
soon be multiplied for all in
the holidays to come from
your sweet grace and giving.
Thanks sweet soul.

Aquarius-Jan 20-Feb. 18
You have so much motiva-
tion. It stems from your pas-


sion and innovative ideas. No
one has more. You were
born with a great gift. You
don't stay down for long. This
fire and grit in your heart and
soul are the great tools mov-
ing you forward to your great
purpose. You are a marathon
runner. We all cheer you on
to victory.

Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
There are three strong rea-
sons for your success. You
are a risk taker. You have
strong faith in life. You have
great love of family and
friends. No one does it better.
This is why spirit made you
the last sign. To tie up loose
ends on the important stuff,
so we can all continue on to
"new beginnings." Thanks
from everyone.

"Every family unit has its
own story woven together
to make the main plot," he
said. "Each unit has a prob-
lem that is solved by the
main action of the story. It's
a melodrama, or an off-
shoot of a romantic drama,
but it's a fun story that's
realistic and that people
can get involved in."
The cast includes


Michael Hurst, Cody Sen-
ger, Jacob Lacroix, Cooper
Ferrell, Maegan Vogel, Ali-
cia Almodovar, Jennifer
Spain, Sarah Johnson and
Felicia D'Ascanio, most of
whom are first-year stu-
dents at IRSC.
"We've been rewriting,
cutting and pasting," he
said. "I've asked for input
about the characters. I love
working on new plays like
that. They come out better
and stronger. These are
really great kids."
Mr. Moberg is more


accustomed to writing
comic murder mysteries or
dramas. His next work,
"Hunting Aliens," will be
produced in April and is a
serious work about the
search for faith. This work,
neither broad comedy nor
deep tragedy or drama, is
new for him.
"I'd like to write more like
this," he said. "I like play-
writing, but I have the per-
fect job. I get to produce my
plays. People beg for that.
To see it in front of an audi-
ence is humbling. I see


what works and what does-
n't and I fix it. It's the oppor-
tunity of a lifetime and I've
become a better writer. I've
got the best of both worlds."

"Christmas Doesn't Love
Me Anymore" will be pre-
sented at the Wynne Black
Box Theatre on the Indian
River State College Main
Campus, 3209 Virginia Ave.,

For Christmas dinner, try fresh ham, appetizers


Hello, smart shoppers.
For Christmas, I
never repeat the
turkey dinner. Recipes I
have given for rib roast,
Virginia ham, lasagna, etc.
are great choices.
This week's dinner: Fresh
ham. Everyone knows about
smoked ham, but not fresh
ham.It's not always avail-
able in local markets. Fresh
ham is ham that has not
been smoked or cured. It's
much less expensive than
loin of pork and the meat is
lean and delicious.
Start the feast with your
choice of two great appetiz-
ers. Enjoy. See you next
week!

ROASTED
VEGETABLE TART
(NIB)
Serves 6-8

This recipe is compli-
ments of Carapelli Olive Oil
company, famous in
Florence, Italy, since 1893.
It's a relatively easy and
excellent appetizer.

4 plum tomatoes (Roma),
coarsely chopped
1 small eggplant,
unpeeled and cubed
1 medium red bell pepper
(seeded, cut in strips that
are 1/2-inch wide and 1
inch long)


1 large zucchini, cut
lengthwise in quarters
and then into 1/4-inch
slices
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4-cup extra virgin
olive oil, divided
1/2-teaspoon salt
1/8-teaspoon ground
black pepper
Cornmeal
Half of 9-ounce package
refrigerated pie crust*
2 tablespoons grated
Parmesan or Romano
cheese

*Note: Use piecrust sold
boxed in sheets, not formed
in a tin. It can be found in
the dairy section.
Heat oven to 450 degrees.
In bowl, toss all vegeta-
bles with garlic, 3 table-
spoons olive oil, salt and
pepper. Place vegetables in
a large pan. Bake 30 min-
utes until golden brown.
Place piecrust on a pan
which has been lightly
sprinkled with cornmeal.
Place roasted vegetables
onto crust, leaving a 2-inch
border. Fold the dough up
(pleating as necessary) to
partially cover the filling
around the round edges.
Brush crust with remaining
oil.
Reduce oven temperature
to 425-degrees. Bake 15-20
minutes until crust is
golden brown. Sprinkle with
cheese, cut into wedges and


serve.


SPINACH-FETA AIOLI
ON CROSTINI (NIB)
8-10 appetizers

Aioli is garlic mayonnaise
that originated in southern
France. This appetizer is
made like bruschetto. The
end result is superb and
may be made lower in fat by
using low-fat creamed
spinach and low-fat or fat-
free mayonnaise.

1 9-ounce package
creamed spinach
3/4-cup mayonnaise
1 4-ounce package
crumbled feta cheese
1 garlic clove, pressed
1/4-teaspoon ground
red pepper
1 loaf French or Italian
bread, cut diagonally
into 1/2-inch slices


Thaw creamed spinach in
microwave at medium (50
percent power) 5-6 minutes.
Stir together mayonnaise
and next 3 ingredients; stir
in creamed spinach.
Spread creamed spinach
mixture evenly on bread
slices, and place slices on
baking sheet.
Bake at 350-degrees for 10
minutes or until cheese
melts. Serve immediately.

FRESH HAM
Serves 10 or more

Ask the butcher to bone
and tie the ham. Save the
bone for a special occasion
spaghetti sauce (adds great
flavor). By removing the
skin and the fat you will
have a wonderful, lean roast
pork. For a special treat,
have the butcher bone the
meat and leave the skin
(rind) on. It will become
crisp and delicious, albeit
loaded with fat. Either way,
the recipe is the same.

7 pound shank half fresh
ham
Garlic powder
Salt and pepper


Score rind with a sharp
knife. Sprinkle roast with
seasonings. Place on a rack
in roasting pan. Roast at
325-degrees, 35 minutes per
pound. Meat juices should
run clear.
Prepare gravy according
to recipe in previous
columns. Remove the rind
and cut up with scissors.
Carve meat in thin slices.
Serve with applesauce.

Europa
From page B1
stuffed shells, eggplant,
manicotti and chicken
Parmigiana. I opted for
this combo, substituting
veal for the chicken and
omitting the shells. Not
one but two plates arrived
to handle the immense
portions.
Nothing is frozen at
Europa, even the shells
and manicotti are fresh
made, so be prepared to
wait a bit. It will sure be
worth while.
Pasta dishes, from plain
marinara sauce to Alfredo,
are only a prelude on the


menu to Parmigiana dish-
es from meatball to
sausage to eggplant.
Chicken, veal, tripe, cala-
mari, mussels are offered,
along with baked pasta
choices.
Lunch offers several sub
choices. A six-inch sub
with fries and soda for only
$5.95.
Pizza choices: two large
slices and a can of soda,
only $3.99.
Not satisfied with roast
beef offered by suppliers,
Philip cooks huge roasts
for his roast beef and his
specialty Philly cheeses-
teak subs.
A special baker prepares
amazing desserts, from
cheesecake to chocolate


mousse cake. Offered by
the slice or whole when
ordered, you never know
what you'll find in the
dessert case. It could be
cupcakes, a pie, etc.
Philip's cappuccino latte is
awesome and topped off
the feast, with many con-
tainers going home.
Special prices for large
company lunch orders,
delivery, take out and
catering are offered.
Europa Pizza & Pasta is

Great gfft ideas for golf enthusiasts on your holiday list


Just in case you were
unable to find the
perfect gift for the golfer
on your list while shopping
in the madness that is Black
Friday, I have a few sugges-
tions.
Equipment is a difficult
buy. Golfers have different
tastes. There is nothing
worse than getting someone
a club only to find out they
won't be using it.
Tour Edge Golf
(www.touredge.com) is so
confident in its products
that every golfer gets a "30-
day play guarantee." If you
don't like the club within 30
days, you can return it for a
refund or store credit.
Tour Edge's new Exotics
XCG-3 fairway wood is the
first to mate a titanium cup
face with a tungsten sole.
The result is a club that
simply bombs the ball,
while providing wonderful
forgiveness. If you don't see
a 20-yard increase in
distance over your current
fairway wood, the company
will even give you your
money back.
A custom-stamped,
personalized putter could
be just the thing for some.
Sizemore Golf's line of
Lux Putters (www.sizemore-


golf com) offers you the
chance to hand-stamp
letters, numbers and some
symbols on one of several
designs. You can put your
golfer's initials, name, or
even "Merry Christmas" in
one or more places on the
putter, making it truly
unique and personal. Best
of all, prices start at just $99.
Golfers are always in need
of replacing their grips.
Most grips wear out within a
season or so and should be
replaced. Instead of those
boring over-the-counter
grips, why not get personal-
ized ones for that special
golfer?
SMT Golf
(www.smtgolfcom) offers
nearly a dozen different
grips, each of which can be
imprinted with the name,
saying or logo you desire.
You can order as many or as
few as you wish, and there is
never an artwork or setup
charge. It's a great way to
personalize their clubs for
them. Imagine grips that
state "World's Greatest Dad"
or "No. 1 Mom" instead of
that obligatory coffee mug
or t-shirt?
Every golfer has his or her
own personality. Most of us
use head covers on our


clubs to protect them from
the abuse they see riding
around in a cart or being
carried along. By using a
head cover resembling the
golfer's favorite animal, or
supporting their favorite
team or college, they not
only protect their invest-
ment, but show a little of
their personality as well.
Daphne's Headcovers
(www.daphnesheadcovers.c
om) has something for
everyone. From covers large
enough to fit over those
huge drivers, to the latest
hybrids, Daphne's has one
to fit. Nearly all of Daphne's
head covers can be embroi-
dered to personalize them
for that special golfer.
Many men, and now
women, have dumped their
wallets and started using
money clips for their cash
and cards.
For 2009, M-Clip
(www.m-clip.com) has
expanded its lineup to
include several new styles


available with new price
points ranging from $99 to
$139 in both lightweight,
anodized aluminum and
stainless steel models.
In addition, the company
has several new signature
series designs with new
inlays that include: exotic
woods, mother of pearl and
abalone and stingray from
$229.95. Crafted with the
quality level that has
become the hallmark of its
products, each of these new
designs will serve customers
well for years to come. I've
had mine for nearly four
years now. All M-Clip
products come with an
unconditional guarantee of
your complete satisfaction.


If you're looking for a
unique way to help that
golfer pass time on a rainy
day, try the GOLO game
(www.igolo.com). GOLO is a
dice game that involves
rolling nine dice. You take
your lowest score and roll
the remaining dice, select-
ing at least one per roll,
until you've played all nine.
Add up your totals and
that's your score.
There are other games
within the game to spice
things up. The game is quite
addicting and you can even
sample it on the company's
Web site.
Finally, there is always a
gift certificate for a round of
golf or even a cap or shirt


from their favorite course.
Some of the more famous
courses in the country will
even ship hats and shirts to
you if you call them and
place an order with your
credit card. I bought a cap
from Augusta National one
year using that method.
Whatever you decide I'm
sure the golfer on your list
will love the thought that
went into it.

an avid golfer and golf
enthusiast for 30 years. He

Show on WPSL 1590-AM

Toy exhibit stay extended


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
EST. LUCIE COUNTY-
The St. Lucie County
Regional History Center is
extending its latest special
exhibit "Florida Girls and
Boys and their Toys,"
through Jan. 30, 2010.
The traveling exhibit, cre-
ated through the center's
own antique toy collections
and complemented with
photographs from the Muse-
um of Florida History in Tal-
lahassee, details the history
of 20th century toys and the
important place these toys
fill, regardless of age.
Learn about the history
and quirky stories behind
many of the century's most
popular toys ranging from
the Etch-a-Sketch, invented
by a French electrician, to
the simple but lovable Teddy
bear named in honor of the
26th president.
Interactive "play stations"
provide visitors of all ages
the opportunity to recapture
the magic of playtime. Other
features of the exhibit
include paper crafts for chil-
dren and a showing of classic
TV toy commercials.
Visit the St. Lucie County
Regional History Center and
explore the exhibit, as well as
the museum's 16 permanent
exhibits of local history and
the 1908 Register-Gardner
