LUCIE COUNTY More than 50 years after Irene Caudle grew up in a house at Indian River Drive and M idway Road, she recalled some happy childhood memories. "A large tree grew just north of the windmill, which was used as a playhouse," she recalled in a letter she wrote in 1980 to the family who o wned the property at the time. The limbs were so low we spent many hours climbing in it." The letter, written by the daughter of William Robinson, who built the house, is included in the archives at the Faulkner Regional History Center. B ut the sounds of children playing there have been absent for years and the house has become dilapidated with part of it falling in. C urrently, the property is the only one included on the St. Lucie County historic property registry. No one seems certain as to why it's the only one, but part of the reason, officials speculated, is that the county focused on other priorities for the last several years. B ut a newly appointed historical board is looking at ways of possibly adding properties to the list, although that generally requires the consent of the property owner. J ack Connolly, a member of the board, said he hopes publicity will r esult in someone wanting to save the house at Indian River Drive and M idway Road. C urrently, county officials say, the house is in foreclosure and has been since 2008. L ucille Rights, a St. Lucie County historian, said the county can do little on its own to preserve the house. The house at 4955 Indian River Dr ive was placed on the list in 2008 after the county received a petition from the African American Historical Association of St. Lucie County. In a July 17, 2008 letter, Peter W. J ones, who was then the county's historic preservation officer, wrote that the house deserved placement on the list. The residence, built circa 1901, is City to receive piece of steel from World T rade Center PORT ST. LUCIE A piece of history will soon find a new home in Port St. L ucie. In a unanimous vote, the city council approved accepting a donation of one of the steel beams from the Grants to help police department PORT ST. LUCIE With city officials keeping budget expenses to a minimum for the next few years, the Po rt S t. Lucie Police D epartment will use grants to help with equipment needs next year. At the July 11 city council meeting, the council approved two Justice Assistance grants. One is from the state for approximately $32,000, while the other is a federal grant for approximately $55,000. The grants are specific in that they cannot be used for anything other than purchasing equipment. Pa rt of the money will go toward purchasing 25 bioSome new faces to greet students this year PORT ST. LUCIE As students return to schools in Po rt S t. Lucie, some will be greeted by new administrators. The changes were made as a result of the school district changing its organizational chart. These changes will ultimately shave nearly $300,000 from the district office payroll," Superintendent Michael Lannon said. "I t' s another step in this district's commitment to holding the classroom harmless in the face of further drastic reductions in funding for public education." In all, 16 administrative appointments were made in Historical house in disrepair Staff photo by Jay MeiselThis house, known as the Robinson House, is the only house on St. Lucie County historic registry. It is located at Indian River Drive and Midway Road. 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. Remember, just because it's online doesn't mean it's true! Fr om nydailynews.com : F ugitive taunts police on F acebook to catch him A fugitive from upstate N ew York who taunted police on his Facebook page to "catch me if you can. I'm in Brooklyn" has been arrested. The Daily News said U.S. marshals and NYPD detectives tracked Victor Bu r gos down to an apartment in Brooklyn, sitting at his computer with his F acebook page open. The 29-year-old was wanted by U tica police on multiple arrest warrants for domestic violence and harassment of his former girlfriend. He allegedly issued the F acebook challenge after his mug shot appeared on the Utica Police Department's 10 most wanted list.

LUCIE COUNTY Du r ing the past several y ears, the St. Lucie County School District has made cuts and put money into r eserves. It appears that will pay off this year when the school district passes a smaller budget, but won't have to make any layoffs. "I t' s an extremely delicate balancing act," said Kathryn He nsley, school board chairwoman. "It's not for sissies." Last week, the school board gave tentative approval to lowering the tax r ate from $8.17 per $1,000 of taxable property value to $7.87 per $1,000 of taxable property value. Ms. Hensley said the o wner of a home valued at $92,000 will save about $46 annually.

TREASURE COAST Area chapters of the American Red Cross are holding town meetings across the Tr easure Coast to deal with fallout from firing its local administrators. The nonprofit emergency management group gave pink slips to 19 of its 52 salaried employees in a seven-county area that included Martin, St. Lucie, I ndian River and Okeechobee counties. It r elies mainly on a network of 3,200 volunteers, said spokesman Joe H ansen, who added that the cuts were a necessary financial measure, but did not say how much the group saved. The job cuts were part of an organization-wide r estructuring to ensure that a greater percentage of donations goes toward its mission, and not administrative expenses. As it stands, about 91 cents of every dollar the R ed Cross gets goes to its clients, Mr. Hansen said. B ut local volunteers say r egional executive Rob Levine's strategy for achieving that goal alienated the workforce and violated the organization's humanitarian spirit. It 's a situation that has led the group to announce a series of town hall meetings across the region to discuss the layoffs of executives and staff. Let go was longtime Martin County head Mary S awyer, along with Rob S helt, director of disaster services, his assistant, Betty Sp r inger and Mary Jones, community disaster education director. Sa r ah Ruwe, former executive director for the North Tr easure Coast chapter, which covered St. Lucie and In dian River counties, is now director of regional volunteers for a seven-county re gion, including Indian River, Martin and St. Lucie counties. Ms. Sawyer and other former employees declined comment on the separation. B ut some of their former colleagues voiced anger and shock at the move. Thomas Campenni, disaster chairman, lead disaster volunteer and member of the board of directors, gave up a near decade-long affiliation with the group as a sign of protest. He said he joined the Red Cr oss to help in natural disasters, but felt the unannounced cuts of key staffers left the organization unable to properly function. It 's a feeling that Tonya Ma rshall, who lives in Stuart, shared. She called news of upheaval in the group unsettling." "D uring a disaster is probably when you need to trust each other most and r ely on other people. They deal in emergencies and disasters and it seems there's no trust there," Ms. Ma rshall said. "That makes me uncomfortable in terms of how they can coordinate help for the rest of us." B ut Mr. Hansen said the R ed Cross is as strong as it's ever been. He said the cuts we re no different from those taking place in priv ate sector firms across the country in response to tough economic conditions. "P eople react to change in different ways. What we're trying to do is make sure people understand that this is part of a nationwide change to make sure our communities are safe and are good stewards of donor dollars," he said. The group increased its volunteer resources those who recruit and r etain volunteers by 66 percent, and grew its fundraising crew by 60 percent. The changes meant that while it cut 19 positions, it created nine new ones, Mr. Ha nsen said. Another major change included consolidating some of its operations so that it had one region in the area, instead of multiple ones. There was no reason to have three accountants for a 120-mile area," he said. To communicate that message, the group scheduled town hall meetings in Ma r tin, St. Lucie and Indian River counties.

They allow the person to go to favorite r estaurants and order what they want to eat, instead of what they can eat. Dental implants can r estore 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 foundation 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! S ince dental im-plants, like teeth, are embedded in the jaw, the painful chewing associated with removable teeth is eliminated. Unlike traditional dentures, im-plants supports dentures so that there is little pressure on the gums.A dditionally, 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 eliminate the problems traditionally associated with dentures.B est of all, you'll be able to smile more naturally and be comfortable in normal activities such as talking, laughing, smiling and eating.

The event, sponsored in part by AT&T, created six teams of Boys & Girls Club members to create a video focusing on responsible use of broadband technology.Broadband awareness education project helped club membersST. LUCIE COUNTY The Bo ys & Girls Club of St. Lucie C ounty's Garden Terrace Club members participated in Project Youth for Broadband A wareness Literacy & Education a program offered and taught by AT&T on Thursday, J uly 7 and Friday, July 8. The two-day program offered hands-on training in computer technology for the club members. Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County and A T&T's goal was to educate club members on the value of wireless broadband in their communities by using technology through a variety of media components including television, radio, web streaming, and face-to-face education. Club members produced a 30to 60-second video emphasizing the importance of wireless broadband technology in their lives and community. Club members were split into groups and each group chose a topic to do their video on.Topics included kids against bullying, kids who care; I'm making my world better, why exercise is W orld Trade Center. The 9/11 First Responders of the Treasure Coast are donating the approximately 20-foot long beam to the city. D ennis McKenna, president of the 9/11 First R esponders, spoke to the city council at the July 25 meeting. "I was a rescue worker at the World Trade Center, and we vow never to forget that day and the people who sacr ificed their lives while saving other people," he said. Mr. McKenna indicated that transporting and erecting the steel beam at an approved site would not cost the city any money. There is no other motive than having a piece of steel erected that was from the W orld Trade Center," he said. Area residents and businesses have stepped up to help. One is Pursuit Boats B uilders in Fort Pierce that, according to Mr. McKenna, volunteered to transport the steel from the Port Authority in New York to Port St. Lucie. "I t isn't going to cost the city a dime," he said. "We're here to help." Mr. McKenna requested that the steel beam be stored at a law enforcement facility, and said that once the steel arrives, his group would wrap it in a tarp and cover it with a flag until it was put on a proper site. Location of where the steel beam was to eventually go was briefly discussed. "I was under the impression it was designated for the Po rt S t. Lucie Civic Center," Mr. McKenna said. Ma y or JoAnn Faiella said the council hadn't decided y et, and indicated that other locations were being considered for hosting the beam. Mr. McKenna also said that with the steel beam in the city's possession, the city would eventually become part of a book that will detail where all the steel has been placed. There's a lot of New Yorkers here, and a lot of people from the tri-state area," he said. "Everyone here has a good intent on having the steel here. It's something we ll never forget."F or Hometown News newsfp@hometownnewsol.comSteelF rom page A1 See MEMBERS, A8

Well, mosquito control is not working and I want my money back.A thank youI'd like to thank a couple of young men who stopped and helped me change my tire. They pulled behind me, they changed the tire and put the donut on. When I pulled off, the donut was flat. They stopped again and gave me a card of a guy who I called and he came out and helped me. Thank you to those guys who helped this lady get to work. The librariesI see on the television how the governor's wife is encouraging children to go to the library to read. What I want to know is when are the libraries even open anymore?About Sept. 11This is for the mental midget who asked why we celebrate Sept. 11. We don't celebrate, we remember those who lost their lives. Bring back The PatioI don't have a rant or a rave, but I do have a wish. I wish someone would put the Patio Restaurant back together the way it used to be. It was always crowded and had good food and they made the best martinis around.Stop the handoutsIt is painfully obvious that some in Washington have no real interest in cutting government spending. Among the huge number of ways to save taxpayers' money is the Agency for International Development. We've been giving handouts ever since World War II and all that money has gotten us almost nothing. The Brookings Institute reports that the U.S. ranks worst of all international donors in following up on who r eceives the money. For example, $28 million wound up in the rogue state, North Korea. This is worse than waste. It is immoral. Stop the lenient sentencesWe are witnessing a scary trend as Florida judges sentence drivers who are impaired by drugs and alcohol. When people drink and drive, then proceed to injure or kill innocent individuals, we have sentencing guidelines judges are supposed to apply. T oo often, they seem to believe they are smarter than the guidelines and proceed to give more lenient sentences. Too often, when hauled into court, the guilty cry and plead for mercy. But it is too late to show remorse. It does little for the victims and it does nothing to deter others from careless, unlawful behavior.Regarding teachersAs public school budgets are strained, teachers should be put on notice that they must improve their teaching skills. The education establishment has been failing us for years as pupil test scores continue to go down. A pparently, too many teachers are just going through the motions, just putting in time and waiting for retirement. Fe w er than one of every 1,000 teachers has been successfully fired, and that is usually for serious misconduct, not for being a lousy teacher. Teaching can no longer be the only profession where you have no rewards for excellence and no consequences for failure. On the economyW ith President Obama and the Republicans inching to the debt deadline, the economy is stuck in the doldrums, or worse yet, may be sliding back into recession. This decline should tell Washington that current policies have failed. It should be beyond dispute that the big government, big spending policies of the past two-and-a-half years do little to stimulate the economy and do little to produce jobs. Un fortunately, dreary economic news has apparently done nothing to convince the president that what he learned at the Ivy League is economic nonsense and he has almost brought this country to its knees. More on the economyTo its credit, the House of Representatives chopped 6.4 percent off what it will spend next year. However, that leaves a $3.3 billion expenditure. As the reduction was announced, there was an admission that 10,000 people are employed there. That number is extremely high just to handle the administrative duties of the House. The 6.4 percent cut initially appeared to be a step in the right direction, but the number of employees is far more than justified, additional cuts are in order. Getting around spendingD espite growing consensus that our nation needs spending caps, there is still debate about how they should be applied. We have seen numerous attempts in the past decade to enforce fiscal discipline. All have failed. H istory tells us that Congress will always find ways to get around spending limitations. C ongress is addicted to spending. Conclusive evidence indicates the only way is a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution. Our current rate of spending, $100 billion each and every month, is obscene. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail news@hometownnewsol.com.

Hustling around, getting school supplies, clothes, book bags and all the latest accessories. Lots of things to do getting r eady for the first day of school. One thing that is going through a lot of parents' minds this time of year is what to do to be prepared in the computer department. Lots of parents are wondering if they should get a new computer for the school year and, if so, what kind. And many families already have computers but have questions as to whether they should upgrade and what kinds of peripheral can be added to their systems to get ready for the new school year. This week, I hope to shed some light on backto-school computer questions. F irst, let's go over the subject of adding a new computer to the list of back-to-school supplies. If y ou are a family that has a computer and feel you are already equipped for the school year, ask yourself this question: Who was president when your machine was born? If y our machine was born under any president other than our current one, then you may want to consider updating your hardware to something a little more current. I know the president test isn't very scientific, but think of it this way: C omputer years are like dog years; we get seven y ears of advancement for every year. That means a machine that is new today is 21 years more advanced than a machine that was born just three years ago. Three years makes a big difference in computers, so if you're about to enter the new school year with old gear, consider updating to something a little more current. It's worth the investment. The next question you need to answer is do you want the stability of a fullblown tower (or desktop machine)? Or do you want the portable convenience that a laptop would offer? Lots of people are surprised to learn that today's laptops punch just as much wallop as desktop machines. You can get a nice laptop for a fraction of what a desktop or tower model used to cost. Are you planning to move around a lot with y our computer? If so, then a laptop may be for you. Ho we ver, if you're like many families with a home computer that everyone uses for school, it's important that the machine stay in one place. In that case, you would want to consider a tower or desktop model. If y ou have young kids in the house that will be using the machine, it's also important for their safety to have the Internet-connected computer in a common room where everyone can see what's going on. This brings us to the last question. What kinds of peripheral can be added to systems to get ready for the new school year? Pe r ipherals are devices that, when plugged into the computer, enable you to do so much more with y our machine. Pr inters are used for getting data out of the computer in hard copy form while scanners allow y ou to get hard copy data back into the computer. D igital cameras allow us to capture moments, but instead of keeping the memories on film, they're saved on hard drives and CDs and DVDs. By far, the most useful peripheral would have to be the printer.

LUCIE Over the 31 years that Steve M ahlschnee has been in business, he has seen the city of Port St. Lucie grow up around him. B ut that doesn't stop the o wner of K & S Industries from continuing to provide the quality of service his customers have become used to. Whatever we do, we build it as quickly and efficiently as we can," he said. The business began in 1980, when Mr. M ahlschnee began putting up seamless gutters. Since then, the business has expanded into providing storm shutters, screen enclosures for pools and screen patios from Jupiter to Sebastian. And he builds things to last. "I 'v e had screen enclosures up for 20 years," he said. He said one of the biggest misconceptions about screen porches and enclosures is how durable they really are. The codes have changed for their construction," he said. "The screens and enclosures are now built to withstand hurricane winds, just like a house." He said since the codes have changed and the engineering for the mater ials has improved, screens are now built to withstand winds between 130 and 140 miles per hour. And, after the first of the year, that standard will go up to 150 miles per hour," he said. Ev ery two years, Mr. M ahlschnee goes to workshops to continue his education in his business, and he feels that helps him bring the best he can to his customers. "Y ou need to know your industry, and know the things that are coming along and changing," he said. K & S Industries is located at 1379 S.W.Biltmore St. in Port St.Lucie.Hours are from 7 a.m.to 4 p.m.Monday through Friday.For more information,call (772) 879-6885.Business Staff photo by Dawn KrebsSteve Mahlschnee, owner of K & S industries, stands by one of his many work vehicles.

B ecause of the reduced tax r ate and lower property values, the district's budget of about $130 million will drop $5 million. B ut despite the drop, r eserve funds and increased efficiency will allow the district to avoid layoffs, she said. The district also was able to give its employees a 3 percent bonus, which will make up for the 3 percent of salaries employees must now put in the retirement fund. M oney to do that won't be available next year, she said. Employees haven't received a r aise for several years, she said. "E very year our employees have an opportunity to do more for the same pay," she said. S he said the district administration and union representatives decided the goal is to keep the district whole and not lay off employees. Du r ing the past several y ears, the district also has concentrated on improving efficiency in administration, transportation and energy costs, she said. The district has substantially cut administration primarily at the central office with the result of remaining administrators doing more work. To cut transportation, the district has consolidated some bus stops, among other cuts. The district also has worked to save on energy. Among other things, all computers are shut off district wide as of 6 p.m., she said. F or the 2012-13 school y ear, there's no guarantee the district won't have to lay off employees, she said.SavingsF rom page A1 TELLEMYOUREADITINTHE

The biometric fingerprint readers will be distributed to road patrol officers," said the police department's public information officer Thomas Nichols. The readers will help officers when there is a suspect who is not carrying identification. A single finger is scanned, and then sent through a database to see if there are any matches. Another item the grant money will supply is for digital surveillance equipment, protective garments and crime scene equipment. One of the items will even help with training with the city's K-9 unit. The Port St. Lucie Police D epartment has canines of its own and the K-9 tracking software will track and r ecord K-9 training sessions, along with the certifications the K-9 officers and the K-9s receive," Officer Nichols said. The city is not required to match any funds for these grants. In addition, these grants are not automatically renewed every y ear. The grants which the police department applies for each has to be reapplied for and resubmitted," he said. "Prior to application, the grant has to be brought before the city council to be approved, and if the grant monies are awarded, the monies are brought before the city council for acceptance." D espite all the work it takes to get them, the grants are beneficial. Any grant monies awarded to the Port St. L ucie Police Department help fund needed equipment so police can continue to effectively and efficiently perform their duties as well as keep up with technology," Officer N ichols said.GrantsF rom page A1 TREASURE COAST F irst Peoples Bank was closed by the Florida Office of F inancial Regulation on July 15, which appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as receiver. To protect depositors, the FDIC entered into a purchase and assumption agreement with Premier American Bank N ational Association, to assume all deposits of First P eoples Bank. The six branches of First P eoples Bank reopened as branches of Premier American Bank on July 16. D epositors of First Peoples B ank will automatically become depositors of Premier American Bank D eposits will continue to be insured by the FDIC, so there is no need for customers to change their banking relationship in order to r etain their deposit insurance coverage up to applicable limits. C ustomers of First Peoples B ank should continue to use their existing branch until they receive notice from Premier American Bank that it has completed systems changes to allow other Premier American Bank branches to process their accounts, as well. As of March 31, First Peoples Bank had approximately $228.3 million in total assets and $209.7 million in total deposits. In addition to assuming the deposits of the failed bank, Premier American B ank agreed to purchase essentially all of its assets. C ustomers with questions about the transaction can call the FDIC toll-free at (800) 895-3212.Interested parties also can visit www.fdic.gov/bank/individual/failed/firstpeoples.html. The FDIC estimates that the cost to the deposit insurance fund will be $7.4 million. Compared to other alternatives, Premier American Bank's acquisition was the least costly r esolution for the FDIC's DIF. F irst Peoples Bank is the 54th FDIC-insured institution to fail in the nation this year, and the seventh in Florida. The last FDICinsured institution closed in the state was First Commerce Bank of Tampa Bay on June 17. C ongress created the FDIC in 1933 to restore public confidence in the nation's banking system.

PORT ST. LUCIE After r eviewing recommendations from the city's sign code review committee and analyzing input from the public, the Port St. Lucie City Council unanimously approved changes to the city's sign ordinance. The changes included a new requirement for businesses to obtain a permit from the city for all window/door signs and provided an 18-month grace period to allow businesses time to comply. The new requirements, r egulating the size of window signs, takes effect Sept. 8 and the city's Planning and Z oning Department is asking affected businesses to apply for the required permits to ensure the new standards are met. The Code Enforcement D epartment notified local businesses last fall and this summer about the new window requirements. The ordinance defines window sign as "any sign which is attached or painted, either permanently or temporarily, on the interior or exterior of a window, glass door, glass wall, or which is placed within 12 inches of the window, glass door, or glass wall and is intended to be viewed from the outside." U nder the new requirements detailed in Section 155.08 (T) http://library.municode.co m/HTML/13414/level2/TIT XVLAUS_CH155SICO.html# TITXVLAUS_CH155SICO_S 155.08REPEIDSIREPE, the total allowable area of text and images used in window sign has increased from 20 to 40 percent of a window's total area. The change does not apply to convenience stores, which are limited under separate Florida law to a maximum of 20 percent coverage on any window. Legal window signs that existed before March 8, 2010 and complied with the prior ordinance requirement of no more than 20 percent coverage will be required to file a fee waiver application and will be issued a sign permit at no charge. A pplications for window sign permits cost $50. Up to four windows/doors may be included on one application and will be issued a permit if they comply. F or measurement purposes, the size of each individual window pane (or glass door) is calculated independently. The applications include a sketch to show the distribution and location of the 40 percent coverage of signage on the glass. A new permit will be required if there is a change in business o wnership or distribution of the signage. W indow sign permits must be prominently displayed along with the business tax receipt. The new window sign r equirements do not apply to faade signs or monument signs.

I would have to say stock up on printer ink. Why ink? Most everyone who has a computer also has a printer and, being fairly expensive, ink has a tendency to get neglected. If y ou take the time to stock up on ink cartridges before the school year starts, there won't be any last minute out-of-ink emergencies as junior tries in vain to print the science r eport he should have been working on all week.

" When he got there, the driver examined the body, checked his pulse, looked for a heartbeat, but there was nothing," Maqolo told the Associated Press. B ut a day after, morgue workers heard someone shouting for help. They thought it was a ghost, the morgue owner said. "I couldn't believe it!" M aqolo said. "I was also scared. But they are my employees, and I had to show them I wasn't scared, so I called the police." He said the man was pale when they pulled him out. "H e asked, How did I get here?'" Maqolo said. The health department said the man was then taken to a nearby hospital for observation and later discharged by doctors who deemed him stable. Fr om kansascity.com : Man attempts self-surgery with butter knife A Southern California man stuck a butter knife into his belly in a failed bid at selfsurgery to remove a painful hernia, police said. The wife of the 63-year-old G lendale man called 911 and told the emergency operator her husband was using a knife to remove a protruding hernia, Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. Officers found the man naked on a patio lounge chair outside his apartment with a 6-inch butter knife sticking out of his stomach. While waiting for paramedics, the sergeant said, the man pulled out the knife and stuffed a cigarette he was smoking into the bleeding, open wound. What he was thinking, I don't know. I don't know if he was cauterizing it (the wound)," Lorenz said. The man wasn't screaming or showing any signs of pain, the sergeant said. B ased on his actions and statements from the wife, Lorenz said the man was placed on psychiatric hold and taken to Los Angeles C ounty-USC Medical C enter. Fr om telegraph.co.uk : G oldfish survive 134 days without food T wo goldfish have become the smallest and hardiest survivors of the February earthquake in Christchurch, N ew Zealand, that killed 181 people. The fish spent 134 days trapped in their tank in the city's off-limits downtown without anyone to feed them or any electricity to power their tank filter before they were discovered this month. They lived in a 26-gallon tank and may have gleaned some nutrition from eating algae growing on the tank's r ocks and walls. "I t' s certainly an incredible story. I wouldn't have guessed that fish could survive on their own for four months," said Paul Clarkson, curator at the Monterey B ay Aquarium in California. "G oldfish are very hardy critters." He said naturally growing bacteria may have helped keep the water clean enough to sustain life. Fr om msnbc.msn.com : D angling,fake testicles get woman in trouble The police chief of a small S outh Carolina town will ask a jury to decide if a woman broke the state's obscenity laws by driving a pickup truck with plastic testicles hanging from the back. B onneau Police Chief Fr anco Fuda ticketed Vi r ginia Tice, 65, after spying the adornment dangling from her truck. S outh Carolina law considers a bumper sticker, decal or device indecent when it describes, in an offensive way as determined by contemporary community standards, "sexual acts, excretory functions or parts of the human body." The offense carries a maximum fine of $445 but no jail time, Fuda said. This is certainly not a staple of my ticket writing in B onneau," the police chief told Reuters. The Charleston law firm Sa v age & Savage will r epresent Tice for free, attorney Scott Bischoff said. "S he's such a sweet lady, and she just says, I don't want to pay the fine.' We'll let a jury decide whether this is really criminal behavior. I don't want to take away from the importance of free speech, but it's re ally comical," he said.

The average household cannot borrow and spend its way out of debt, so why do Washington bureaucrats believe that borrowing, printing and spending money will fix the problem? The tough reality is that under President Obama's watch, the goose thatlaid the golden egg is on life support. Here's why it's getting uglyD emocrats have more or less been in charge of our government in Washington since the days of the New D eal starting in 1932. They have been accustomed to having their own way.Big government and big spending have been more or less accepted.Their definition of "compromise" has become "we get most of what we want, but we may be forced to concede a few crumbs to the neanderthal Republicans."

Ms. Bland has served on the board of directors since 2008 and has been an active participant in the community assessment process for numerous years. "I am excited for our year ahead, as the United Way continues to be a catalyst for change in our community," said Ms. Bland. "W e will work harder than ever with our agencies to help them maximize their impact. Through our efforts with the volunteer center, we will help our community members become advocates for change, understanding that each can make a difference. "W ith our difficult economic challenges the past few years, the impact we each can have has expanded. We have an exciting year ahead as United Way of St. L ucie County prepares to celebrate 50 years of investing in this community," she said. Ms. Bland, who has worked for QVC in various positions and locations for 18 years, started the QVC, St. L ucie's community affairs team when the contact center opened in 1999. S he has a master's degree in international business from Texas A&M University. F or more information,call (772) 464-5300 or visit www.unitedwayslc.org.

"The timing of construction of this residence places it near the end of the (so called) Victorian period. As of 2008, he noted, the house did not appear to have been lived in for some time, but had retained its physical design integrity." A historical designation r eport states the residence exhibits all the traits of a building designed and/or built by someone with architectural training. The residence certainly r epresents a historical one of the last of its kind,' in both the county and the White City area by virtue of its being a fine example of the folk-style Victorian architecture. Given the fact that as St. Lucie County continues to grow, fewer historic examples of this type remain and thus, the v alue in this particular residence is increased tremendously," the report states. That was probably an expensive home in that day," Mr. Jones said in a r ecent interview about when the house built. The historical designation report notes the location of the property has some significance. The property can lay claim to its location being in the heart' of connection between White City and the Indian River Lagoon and, and as such, given White City's role in the history of the growth of S t. Lucie County, demonstrates a strong associative attachment to the area," the report said. The house also was adjacent to a small train depot that existed at the time in White City. Ms. Caudle wrote that the house was built by my father from cypress off a wrecked barge in the river. My father was from Newton, Kansas, and a cowboy and wanderer, so seeking a new adventure he came to F lorida in 1897 or 1898. "He got a job as Florida East Coast railroad agent at the little White City depot, which was right behind the house," she wrote. Ms. Caudle also noted her father bought hundreds of acres of land to grow pineapple.HouseF rom page A1 TREASURE COAST WPBF TV 25, the area's ABC TV affiliate, has launched the WPBF 25 hurricane tracker application for free download on both iPhone and Android platforms.

Organizer Eddie MercaFORT PIERCE As a student portraying a disabled veteran in a student production of a Broadway hit, Tyler Beauregard has gained more understanding of what it's like to be handicapped, he said. "I t makes me feel for those who can't get up and walk because all I want to do is get up and walk," he said. He 's acting in a student production at the Pineapple Playhouse of "Songs for a New World," a musical that was first performed on Br oadway in 1995.

ducer, Mr. Beauregard and other students from Port St. L ucie High School will perform "Songs for a New W orld," at the Pineapple Playhouse on Aug. 11, Aug. 12, A ug. 13 and Aug. 14. Mr. Sanders said he produced a cabaret while a senior and then decided to look into producing "Songs for a N ew World," at the Pineapple P layhouse. He did research and found out that it would cost $1,200 to secure the rights to put on the show. With help from the community, which he said was crucial, he came up with the money for the show, he said. "I t' s not like we (students) have an extra grand lying around," he said. The community also helped in other ways, he said. Pe r kins Medical Supply provided a wheelchair for Mr. B eauregard's role and the St. L ucie County School District loaned a ladder apparatus for the stage. Mr. Sanders said that "S ongs for a New World," has become a cult classic through its sound track. There's a story that the writer, Jason Robert Brown, created several musicals, but achieved success after combining music from several of those plays, Mr. Sanders said. "S ongs for a New World," contains a series of songs connected by themes and covers such topics as motherhood, fear, relationships, war, death and survival, he said. S ome performers portray multiple characters. Mr. Beauregard, who, like other students, has performed in school plays, said he joined because Mr. S anders is a friend and he liked "Songs for a New W orld." "I always loved the show," he said. "The songs were really cool." Throughout the show, he portrays a homeless Army veteran who is handicapped. H is songs focus on the desire to be able to walk. W ith the wheelchair, he said, "It is very difficult to maneuver around the stage," he said. H illary Councillor, another student actress, said she portrays a woman in a troubled r elationship. After her boyfriend leaves her, she finds out she is pregnant, she said. S he likes her role because she fits into all the stories in "S ongs for a New World." J essica Phipps, another student actress, said her inspiration to act came from an aunt who was an actress for years. H er aunt has appeared in shows at the Lyric Theatre in St uart, she said. In her role, she is referred to only as "Woman No. 2," and she portrays several different people, all of whom want to be noticed, she said. A udiences should hold the students to the same standards as adult actors, Mr. S anders said. The show is designed to bring out the emotions of the audience, he said. "I don't think there will be a dry eye in the house," he said. Sh o ws will be at 8 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 11, Friday, A ug. 12 and Saturday, Aug. 13. A matinee will be held Sunday, Aug. 14 at 2 p.m. T ickets cost $12 and are on sale at the South Florida D ance Company, 529 Prima V ista Blvd., Suite 309, Port St. L ucie and the Pineapple Playhouse, 700 W.

Hello smart shoppers. I was doing a little r eminiscing back to my childhood as I was eating my favorite candy, peanut M&M's. How I loved those little r ound dots. The original chocolate-only M&M's were created in 1941 as a treat for the military "they melt in y our mouth, not in your hand" and only came in brown. Times were not like today and little girls only made up and wore lipstick on Halloween, so when they finally brought out M&M's in other colors, I loved the r ed ones best because I could pretend they were lipstick. By the time the peanut M&M's came out I was already a mother and it annoyed me how everyone gobbled them up before I could even get my fair share. I made a rule that no one followed, except my little granddaughter, Christy. You must carefully suck off the shell then the chocolate, finally eat the peanut; it was against the law to gobble them up. She still follows that law" to this day, as do I. It's su mmertime, do your kids know how to swim? I was 11 before I learned. My U ncle Vinnie and Aunt Ma r gie lived in Long Island, N ew Yorkon a canal. She had been a life guard and insisted it was time. With a donut shaped life preserver around my chubby body she helped me into the canal. Close to the bulk head the water was shallow. "W alk out into the middle, kick your legs and swim!" I was told. When the bottom dropped out I panicked. Ha ve you ever heard of anyone flipping themselves ov er? The preserver held me up all right, FEET up! She dove in, clothes and all and pulled me upright. "How could anyone do what you just did?" The next day I was forced to do it again. "This time, make sure it's heads up!" I learned. Did I have a choice? This week's column will answer a request for biscuits made with a heart healthy oil rather than solid shortening and then some sweet treats. U ntil next week!H H O O M M E E MAD MAD E E B B I I S S C C U U ITS (N ITS (N I I B) B)B iscuits made with a heart-healthy oil are easy to make and healthier. 2 cups sifted flour* 3 teaspoons baking powder 1/2-teaspoon salt 1/3-cup canola oil 2/3-cups milk *Remember, first sift the flour then measure; do not shake down.

NEAR INTERMEDIATE DISTANCE 664286MINI IMPLANTS Many denture wearers are dissatisfied or even upset because they cant eat many of the foods they crave. Pastes, pads and worry about embarrassing slips and slides are a way of life. Dr. James Strawn has been practicing general dentistry on the Treasure Coast for over twenty years. Many of his patients wear dentures with varying degrees of success. Even a perfect fit may not provide the ability and comfort most people wish for,Ž he said recently, and lets face it, were using a treatment method that hasnt changed much over the last hundred years. That is until now!Ž About two years ago, Dr. Strawn began offering a new way to stabilize dentures with mini implants. This has opened a whole new world of ability and comfort, and is life-changing in most cases,Ž he stated. One patient exclaimed that to him it is the biggest human advance since the discovery of water, he is so happy to have teeth that feel solid when he talks and enjoys a meal. I dont feel so much like an old man anymore.Ž And it is surprisingly simple and affordable, according to Dr. Strawn. If a persons current denture is in good working condition, we can usually match it up to the new mini implants. That is a big savings right there,Ž he said. The mini implants themselves are much less expensive than conventional implants. Minis are about one third as wide, so there is usually no need for extensive bone removal or gum surgery or months of healing. In most cases, the implants are immediately solid enough to connect to the denture and the patient walks out the first day with a stabilized denture. Each patient is shown how to snap the denture in over the implants and unsnap it too. Also, because the mini implants are so small, they can be used in situations where there would not be enough bone for conventional implants. Every person is differentŽ said Dr. Strawn, but we have found very few people who could not benefit from this treatment.Ž A question we are often asked is, how long will they last, and how much maintenance is involved?Ž said Dr. Strawn, He continued, My goal for each case is ten years or more. Mini implants have an excellent long term track record and have been classified by the FDA as such. Success can be affected by a persons overall health and the condition of the bone to be implanted, but we are very pleased with the results we are getting, and the patients are delightedŽ. According to Dr. Strawn, a regular check-up and cleaning schedule is important for maintaining the function and health of the implants. While decay is no longer an issue, tartar and plaque can accumulate to cause gum inflammation and create a problem. The flexible o-rings that provide the denture grip on the implants also need to be changed about once a year. Check ups also allow for the denture itself to be checked and adjusted as needed. When its time for a new denture, can the same implants be used to hold it in? Yes, answers Dr. Strawn, as long as they are solid in place and the tissues are in good shape. We design the new denture to snap into them and continue the benefits of comfort and the solid feel. Another frequently asked question is how much discomfort and down time do patients experience after implant placement. I often compare this to having a tooth extractedŽ said Dr. Strawn. The amount of discomfort can vary for each person, but we tailor every approach to control it so that the post operative period is as smooth and easy as possible. Dr. Strawn offers a free consultation for all who wish to consider mini implants.

One of the most ignored health problems in the countryDry Eye Syndrome also known as K eratoconjunctivitis Sicca is a progressive eye disease in which dryness is caused by decreased tear production, increased tear evaporation, or more commonly a combination of both. This condition affects 1 in 3 people over the age of 40 and has been on the upswing in younger generations as well. It is easily one of the most common eye problems patients suffer from, yet do nothing about. What are the symptoms of dry eyes? Common symptoms include transiently blurry vision, excess tearing (watering), dryness, burning, sandy feeling, and tired sensation all of which can worsens as the day goes on or with increased reading or computer use. Other symptoms include itching, stingy, redness, or pressure sensation in the eyes. Why do these things occur? A normal tear film requires a balance of not only aqueous tears, but an oil film, and mucin layer as well. Lets look at the common mechanisms for dryness, first, is aqueous tear deficiency (ATD). The lacrimal gland is unable to produce sufficient aqueous tears to keep the whole eye moisturized. The leading reasons for this include rheumatologic disease, decreased corneal nerve sensation, multiple drugs (oral contraceptives, antidepressants, antihypertensives, antihistamines, betablockers, etc). The second type of dryness is a lack of tears do to evaporation. This is caused when you have a decreased production of oil on the eye. Without the oil the aqueous layer evaporates off the eye in seconds. Age is one of the main reasons for the eye to decrease production of the oil layer of the eye. Lastly decreased mucin production can cause serious dry eye disease by not allowing tears to form on the eye properly. F ortunately this is fairly uncommon and is usually caused by poor nutrition. How can my eye care professional check me for these problems? The most important thing is to not ignore these symptoms. Visit your eye doctor for a comprehensive evaluation and complain about your dryness! Dont suffer in silence with this problem. Your eye care professional will review your medical history for risk factors. Performing a biomicroscope slit lamp examination of your tear glands and tear film will give your doctor a better idea of your specific case. Additional testing including Schirmers test, tear break up time dye testing, and tear assay analysis can help your doctor understand how your dryness is occurring. How can I treat my eyes now that I know whats going on? There are many treatments for dry eye syndrome! There are many over the counter lubricating tear drops you could use. I caution my patients that not all tear drops are the same. Many have harsh preservatives harmful for the eyes. Others are exceptionally viscous and blur the vision. Holistic hot compress and lid hygiene treatments are extremely helpful as well. If these basic treatments are not sufficient medical treatment with cyclosporine agents, non-steroidal or steroidal anti inflammatory medicines may be needed. Minor surgical procedures used to decrease tear drainage can be utilized as well. If you are suffering with any of these problems I strongly recommend you visit your eye care professional for a comprehensive dry eye evaluation. You dont have to continue to ignore this health concern! Christopher Frey O.D. Dr Christopher Frey O.D.Board Certified Optometrist Subscribe Today!

ST. LUCIE COUNTY "S tuff the bag" is a new slogan for the School Supplies for Students program sponsored by United Way of St. L ucie County. Donors can fill bags or boxes with new school supplies and return to the U nited Way office or a community drop off site for sorting and packing. B usinesses, organizations, clubs and places of worship are encouraged to collect and deliver supplies. "W e can't gather too many supplies," said Cris A dams, vice president of C ommunity Impact, United Way of St. Lucie County, "16,000 students in this school district qualify for this kind of help." S ince its inception in 1997, School Supplies for S tudents has provided children in need with the basic tools necessary to be successful in school. Educators ov erwhelmingly agree that students with the appropriate supplies at the start of school are more prepared for class, eager to work, and in general have a better attitude toward school. For older students, it can be a r eason to stay in school. Pa r ticipants in School S upplies for Students are those children eligible for free lunch who are recommended by their school. The program has provided supplies for more than 39,000 children in the past 15 years. "U nited Way wants to boost every child's chance for success in school and we need community partners to make that happen," said Ms. Adams. There are many ways to participate in the School S upplies Program. Those who want to help can: Collect general school supplies. Fill supplies requests for individual children. Adopt-A-School or A dopt-A-School Grade. Sort and pack supplies at Southern Oaks Middle School on July 30, Aug. 3, and Aug. 6, from 9 a.m.-3 p .m. each day To make cash donations, send checks to united Way of St. Lucie County, 4800 S.

Usually, when someone turns 50, people show up dressed in black, toting black balloons, black flowers and so forth. The idea is to tease the one turning 50 and have a little fun. On Sept. 8, when the P atrick Women's Golf Association turns 50, the atmosphere will be festive and lively. No black balloons will be tolerated. The celebration will be held at Manatee Cove Golf C ourse at Patrick Air Force B ase, starting at 12:30 pm. M embers, guests and dignitaries will meet to share refreshments and memories with this wonderful, longstanding group of women. In 1961, Lt. Gen. Bernard A. Shriver, commander of Air Force Systems Command, cut the traditional r ibbon at the opening of the Patrick AFB Golf C ourse. The course was built with a meager $45,000 budget from the C entral Welfare Fund. P ersonnel volunteered their labor and used second-hand materials to keep costs down. When completed, the course, designed by r enowned architect Robert Tr ent Jones, was the longest in Brevard County, measuring 6,125 yards and carrying a course rating of 74. And that was from the ladies' tees! Over the years, tees were moved and today the course plays just ov er 5,000 yards with a r ating of 69.8 and a slope of 120 from the forward tees. The course wasn't the only thing that evolved. Over time, the clubhouse has seen changes, updates and more. In the early 1970s the nines were switched so members could watch the winners finish from the comfort of the clubhouse. Originally, the greens fees were $3 during the we ek and $5 on weekends and holidays. An annual membership was available to officers and civilians for $60 single and $72 family. Airmen received a discount and could join for $48 single and $60 family. The Patrick Women's Golf Association was organized on Aug. 10, 1961, with Terry Morrow serving as the first president. Ladies day officially began on Sept. 8 with 12 members competing. The next year was quite busy for the ladies. The association joined the F lorida State Golf Association. Golf Hall of Famer K athy Whitworth, winner of 88 professional titles, hosted a clinic and more than 300 golfers played the course during Labor Day w eekend. In 1966, Patty Berg played the course and held a clinic. During her ninehole match Berg asked, "A re n' t there any short holes on this course?" She would return in 1984. The association formed a new tournament in 1975, the Grandmothers' Tournament. A total of 42 grandmothers signed up and enjoyed the event. C ontinuing their tradition of coming up with unique tournaments and events, in 1976, the PWGA held its inaugural smokers versus non-smokers tournament with half the proceeds going to the American Cancer Society. Over the years that followed, the PWGA continued its charitable work within the community. Christmas tournaments are held to donate to the Meals on Wheels program. The annual memorial tournament r aises money for the American Cancer Society and the American Heart Association. The group, in lieu of exchanging Christmas gifts, in 1987 started a tradition of donating funds to the Florida Children's Home in M elbourne. An annual auction of Christmas decorations and ornaments is held at the association's Christmas party with proceeds going to the Christmas basket fund for needy enlisted personnel. In 2007, member Pat P ettinato started a carepackage program for servicemen in Afghanistan, with contributions from PWGA members. Mazie Saunders began making hats for children in Afghanistan. Ev en husbands have gotten involved. Bill S hepherd, member Judy S hepherd's husband, donates his tip money from driving the shuttle from the parking lot to the clubhouse on ladies day to cover postage for the packages. In 2009 Gen. Teal presented the PWGA with a certificate of appreciation and a flag for their generous support. The flag was flown on Nov. 22, 2007, over Camp Lighting Ga rd ez in Afghanistan. The PWGA celebrates the birthdays of all of its members. They have put on special celebrations for those turning 90, giving them wonderful flower bouquets. When you think about friendships, it's hard to top that of members Gwena N ylander and Virginia M andeville, who began playing together two or three times a week in 1968. "We have many members in their 80s," said J udy Shepherd. "They are quite active and play every w eek." The 50th anniversary celebration will be dedicated to all of the past and present members of the PWGA who have made the organization not only great, but also so much fun. And to the future members who will continue to carry on. He re 's to you, ladies! F ifty never looked so good.

LUCIE COUNTY More than 50 years after Irene Caudle grew up in a house at Indian River Drive and M idway Road, she recalled some happy childhood memories. A large tree grew just north of the windmill, which was used as a playhouse, she recalled in a letter she wrote in 1980 to the family who o wned the property at the time. The limbs were so low we spent many hours climbing in it. The letter, written by the daughter of William Robinson, who built the house, is included in the archives at the Faulkner Regional History Center. B ut the sounds of children playing there have been absent for years and the house has become dilapidated with part of it falling in. C urrently, the property is the only one included on the St. Lucie County historic property registry. No one seems certain as to why its the only one, but part of the reason, officials speculated, is that the county focused on other priorities for the last several years. B ut a newly appointed historical board is looking at ways of possibly adding properties to the list, although that generally requires the consent of the property owner. J ack Connolly, a member of the board, said he hopes publicity will r esult in someone wanting to save the house at Indian River Drive and M idway Road. C urrently, county officials say, the house is in foreclosure and has been since 2008. L ucille Rights, a St. Lucie County historian, said the county can do little on its own to preserve the house. The house at 4955 Indian River Dr ive was placed on the list in 2008 after the county received a petition from the African American Historical Association of St. Lucie County. In a July 17, 2008 letter, Peter W. J ones, who was then the countys historic preservation officer, wrote that the house deserved placement on the list. The residence, built circa 1901, is City to receive piece of steel from World T rade Center PORT ST. LUCIE A piece of history will soon find a new home in Port St. L ucie. In a unanimous vote, the city council approved accepting a donation of one of the steel beams from the Grants to help police department PORT ST. LUCIE With city officials keeping budget expenses to a minimum for the next few years, the Po rt S t. Lucie Police D epartment will use grants to help with equipment needs next year. At the July 11 city council meeting, the council approved two Justice Assistance grants. One is from the state for approximately $32,000, while the other is a federal grant for approximately $55,000. The grants are specific in that they cannot be used for anything other than purchasing equipment. Pa rt of the money will go toward purchasing 25 bioSome new faces to greet students this year PORT ST. LUCIE As students return to schools in Po rt S t. Lucie, some will be greeted by new administrators. The changes were made as a result of the school district changing its organizational chart. These changes will ultimately shave nearly $300,000 from the district office payroll, Superintendent Michael Lannon said. I t s another step in this districts commitment to holding the classroom harmless in the face of further drastic reductions in funding for public education. In all, 16 administrative appointments were made in Historical house in disrepair Staff photo by Jay MeiselThis house, known as the Robinson House, is the only house on St. Lucie County historic registry. It is located at Indian River Drive and Midway Road. Spend any time surfing the Web and you are bound to find stories that are just too bizarre to be true. Heres a sampling, edited for length.

LUCIE COUNTY Dur ing the past several y ears, the St. Lucie County School District has made cuts and put money into r eserves. It appears that will pay off this year when the school district passes a smaller budget, but wont have to make any layoffs. I t s an extremely delicate balancing act, said Kathryn He nsley, school board chairwoman. Its not for sissies. Last week, the school board gave tentative approval to lowering the tax r ate from $8.17 per $1,000 of taxable property value to $7.87 per $1,000 of taxable property value. Ms. Hensley said the o wner of a home valued at $92,000 will save about $46 annually.

TREASURE COAST Area chapters of the American Red Cross are holding town meetings across the Tr easure Coast to deal with fallout from firing its local administrators. The nonprofit emergency management group gave pink slips to 19 of its 52 salaried employees in a seven-county area that included Martin, St. Lucie, I ndian River and Okeechobee counties. It r elies mainly on a network of 3,200 volunteers, said spokesman Joe H ansen, who added that the cuts were a necessary financial measure, but did not say how much the group saved. The job cuts were part of an organization-wide r estructuring to ensure that a greater percentage of donations goes toward its mission, and not administrative expenses. As it stands, about 91 cents of every dollar the R ed Cross gets goes to its clients, Mr. Hansen said. B ut local volunteers say r egional executive Rob Levines strategy for achieving that goal alienated the workforce and violated the organizations humanitarian spirit. It s a situation that has led the group to announce a series of town hall meetings across the region to discuss the layoffs of executives and staff. Let go was longtime Martin County head Mary S awyer, along with Rob S helt, director of disaster services, his assistant, Betty Spr inger and Mary Jones, community disaster education director. Sar ah Ruwe, former executive director for the North Tr easure Coast chapter, which covered St. Lucie and In dian River counties, is now director of regional volunteers for a seven-county re gion, including Indian River, Martin and St. Lucie counties. Ms. Sawyer and other former employees declined comment on the separation. B ut some of their former colleagues voiced anger and shock at the move. Thomas Campenni, disaster chairman, lead disaster volunteer and member of the board of directors, gave up a near decade-long affiliation with the group as a sign of protest. He said he joined the Red Cross to help in natural disasters, but felt the unannounced cuts of key staffers left the organization unable to properly function. It s a feeling that Tonya Ma rshall, who lives in Stuart, shared. She called news of upheaval in the group unsettling. D uring a disaster is probably when you need to trust each other most and r ely on other people. They deal in emergencies and disasters and it seems theres no trust there, Ms. Ma rshall said. That makes me uncomfortable in terms of how they can coordinate help for the rest of us. B ut Mr. Hansen said the R ed Cross is as strong as its ever been. He said the cuts we re no different from those taking place in priv ate sector firms across the country in response to tough economic conditions. P eople react to change in different ways. What were trying to do is make sure people understand that this is part of a nationwide change to make sure our communities are safe and are good stewards of donor dollars, he said. The group increased its volunteer resources those who recruit and r etain volunteers by 66 percent, and grew its fundraising crew by 60 percent. The changes meant that while it cut 19 positions, it created nine new ones, Mr. Ha nsen said. Another major change included consolidating some of its operations so that it had one region in the area, instead of multiple ones. There was no reason to have three accountants for a 120-mile area, he said. To communicate that message, the group scheduled town hall meetings in Mar tin, St. Lucie and Indian River counties.

They allow the person to go to favorite r estaurants and order what they want to eat, instead of what they can eat. Dental implants can r estore a persons ability to eat, smile, kiss and talk with confidence and comfort. A dental implant is a substitute tooth root that provides a stable foundation 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! S ince dental im-plants, like teeth, are embedded in the jaw, the painful chewing associated with removable teeth is eliminated. Unlike traditional dentures, im-plants supports dentures so that there is little pressure on the gums.A dditionally, 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 eliminate the problems traditionally associated with dentures.B est of all, youll be able to smile more naturally and be comfortable in normal activities such as talking, laughing, smiling and eating.

LUCIE COUNTY The Bo ys & Girls Club of St. Lucie C ountys Garden Terrace Club members participated in Project Youth for Broadband A wareness Literacy & Education a program offered and taught by AT&T on Thursday, J uly 7 and Friday, July 8. The two-day program offered hands-on training in computer technology for the club members. Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County and A T&Ts goal was to educate club members on the value of wireless broadband in their communities by using technology through a variety of media components including television, radio, web streaming, and face-to-face education. Club members produced a 30to 60-second video emphasizing the importance of wireless broadband technology in their lives and community. Club members were split into groups and each group chose a topic to do their video on.Topics included kids against bullying, kids who care; Im making my world better, why exercise is W orld Trade Center. The 9/11 First Responders of the Treasure Coast are donating the approximately 20-foot long beam to the city. D ennis McKenna, president of the 9/11 First R esponders, spoke to the city council at the July 25 meeting. I was a rescue worker at the World Trade Center, and we vow never to forget that day and the people who sacr ificed their lives while saving other people, he said. Mr. McKenna indicated that transporting and erecting the steel beam at an approved site would not cost the city any money. There is no other motive than having a piece of steel erected that was from the W orld Trade Center, he said. Area residents and businesses have stepped up to help. One is Pursuit Boats B uilders in Fort Pierce that, according to Mr. McKenna, volunteered to transport the steel from the Port Authority in New York to Port St. Lucie. I t isnt going to cost the city a dime, he said. Were here to help. Mr. McKenna requested that the steel beam be stored at a law enforcement facility, and said that once the steel arrives, his group would wrap it in a tarp and cover it with a flag until it was put on a proper site. Location of where the steel beam was to eventually go was briefly discussed. I was under the impression it was designated for the Po rt S t. Lucie Civic Center, Mr. McKenna said. May or JoAnn Faiella said the council hadnt decided y et, and indicated that other locations were being considered for hosting the beam. Mr. McKenna also said that with the steel beam in the citys possession, the city would eventually become part of a book that will detail where all the steel has been placed. Theres a lot of New Yorkers here, and a lot of people from the tri-state area, he said. Everyone here has a good intent on having the steel here.

Well, mosquito control is not working and I want my money back.A thank youId like to thank a couple of young men who stopped and helped me change my tire. They pulled behind me, they changed the tire and put the donut on. When I pulled off, the donut was flat. They stopped again and gave me a card of a guy who I called and he came out and helped me. Thank you to those guys who helped this lady get to work. The librariesI see on the television how the governors wife is encouraging children to go to the library to read. What I want to know is when are the libraries even open anymore?About Sept. 11This is for the mental midget who asked why we celebrate Sept. 11. We dont celebrate, we remember those who lost their lives. Bring back The PatioI dont have a rant or a rave, but I do have a wish. I wish someone would put the Patio Restaurant back together the way it used to be. It was always crowded and had good food and they made the best martinis around.Stop the handoutsIt is painfully obvious that some in Washington have no real interest in cutting government spending. Among the huge number of ways to save taxpayers money is the Agency for International Development. Weve been giving handouts ever since World War II and all that money has gotten us almost nothing. The Brookings Institute reports that the U.S. ranks worst of all international donors in following up on who r eceives the money. For example, $28 million wound up in the rogue state, North Korea. This is worse than waste. It is immoral. Stop the lenient sentencesWe are witnessing a scary trend as Florida judges sentence drivers who are impaired by drugs and alcohol. When people drink and drive, then proceed to injure or kill innocent individuals, we have sentencing guidelines judges are supposed to apply. T oo often, they seem to believe they are smarter than the guidelines and proceed to give more lenient sentences. Too often, when hauled into court, the guilty cry and plead for mercy. But it is too late to show remorse. It does little for the victims and it does nothing to deter others from careless, unlawful behavior.Regarding teachersAs public school budgets are strained, teachers should be put on notice that they must improve their teaching skills. The education establishment has been failing us for years as pupil test scores continue to go down. A pparently, too many teachers are just going through the motions, just putting in time and waiting for retirement. Few er than one of every 1,000 teachers has been successfully fired, and that is usually for serious misconduct, not for being a lousy teacher. Teaching can no longer be the only profession where you have no rewards for excellence and no consequences for failure. On the economyW ith President Obama and the Republicans inching to the debt deadline, the economy is stuck in the doldrums, or worse yet, may be sliding back into recession. This decline should tell Washington that current policies have failed. It should be beyond dispute that the big government, big spending policies of the past two-and-a-half years do little to stimulate the economy and do little to produce jobs. Un fortunately, dreary economic news has apparently done nothing to convince the president that what he learned at the Ivy League is economic nonsense and he has almost brought this country to its knees. More on the economyTo its credit, the House of Representatives chopped 6.4 percent off what it will spend next year. However, that leaves a $3.3 billion expenditure. As the reduction was announced, there was an admission that 10,000 people are employed there. That number is extremely high just to handle the administrative duties of the House. The 6.4 percent cut initially appeared to be a step in the right direction, but the number of employees is far more than justified, additional cuts are in order. Getting around spendingD espite growing consensus that our nation needs spending caps, there is still debate about how they should be applied. We have seen numerous attempts in the past decade to enforce fiscal discipline. All have failed. H istory tells us that Congress will always find ways to get around spending limitations. C ongress is addicted to spending. Conclusive evidence indicates the only way is a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution. Our current rate of spending, $100 billion each and every month, is obscene. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail news@hometownnewsol.com.

Hustling around, getting school supplies, clothes, book bags and all the latest accessories. Lots of things to do getting r eady for the first day of school. One thing that is going through a lot of parents minds this time of year is what to do to be prepared in the computer department. Lots of parents are wondering if they should get a new computer for the school year and, if so, what kind. And many families already have computers but have questions as to whether they should upgrade and what kinds of peripheral can be added to their systems to get ready for the new school year. This week, I hope to shed some light on backto-school computer questions. F irst, lets go over the subject of adding a new computer to the list of back-to-school supplies. If y ou are a family that has a computer and feel you are already equipped for the school year, ask yourself this question: Who was president when your machine was born? If your machine was born under any president other than our current one, then you may want to consider updating your hardware to something a little more current. I know the president test isnt very scientific, but think of it this way: C omputer years are like dog years; we get seven y ears of advancement for every year. That means a machine that is new today is 21 years more advanced than a machine that was born just three years ago. Three years makes a big difference in computers, so if youre about to enter the new school year with old gear, consider updating to something a little more current. Its worth the investment. The next question you need to answer is do you want the stability of a fullblown tower (or desktop machine)? Or do you want the portable convenience that a laptop would offer? Lots of people are surprised to learn that todays laptops punch just as much wallop as desktop machines. You can get a nice laptop for a fraction of what a desktop or tower model used to cost. Are you planning to move around a lot with y our computer? If so, then a laptop may be for you. Howe ver, if youre like many families with a home computer that everyone uses for school, its important that the machine stay in one place. In that case, you would want to consider a tower or desktop model. If you have young kids in the house that will be using the machine, its also important for their safety to have the Internet-connected computer in a common room where everyone can see whats going on. This brings us to the last question. What kinds of peripheral can be added to systems to get ready for the new school year? Per ipherals are devices that, when plugged into the computer, enable you to do so much more with y our machine. Pr inters are used for getting data out of the computer in hard copy form while scanners allow y ou to get hard copy data back into the computer. D igital cameras allow us to capture moments, but instead of keeping the memories on film, theyre saved on hard drives and CDs and DVDs. By far, the most useful peripheral would have to be the printer.

Enclosures built to stand test of timePORT ST. LUCIE Over the 31 years that Steve M ahlschnee has been in business, he has seen the city of Port St. Lucie grow up around him. B ut that doesnt stop the o wner of K & S Industries from continuing to provide the quality of service his customers have become used to. Whatever we do, we build it as quickly and efficiently as we can, he said. The business began in 1980, when Mr. M ahlschnee began putting up seamless gutters. Since then, the business has expanded into providing storm shutters, screen enclosures for pools and screen patios from Jupiter to Sebastian. And he builds things to last. I v e had screen enclosures up for 20 years, he said. He said one of the biggest misconceptions about screen porches and enclosures is how durable they really are. The codes have changed for their construction, he said. The screens and enclosures are now built to withstand hurricane winds, just like a house. He said since the codes have changed and the engineering for the mater ials has improved, screens are now built to withstand winds between 130 and 140 miles per hour. And, after the first of the year, that standard will go up to 150 miles per hour, he said. Ev ery two years, Mr. M ahlschnee goes to workshops to continue his education in his business, and he feels that helps him bring the best he can to his customers. Y ou need to know your industry, and know the things that are coming along and changing, he said. K & S Industries is located at 1379 S.W.Biltmore St. in Port St.Lucie.Hours are from 7 a.m.to 4 p.m.Monday through Friday.For more information,call (772) 879-6885.Business Staff photo by Dawn KrebsSteve Mahlschnee, owner of K & S industries, stands by one of his many work vehicles.

B ecause of the reduced tax r ate and lower property values, the districts budget of about $130 million will drop $5 million. B ut despite the drop, r eserve funds and increased efficiency will allow the district to avoid layoffs, she said. The district also was able to give its employees a 3 percent bonus, which will make up for the 3 percent of salaries employees must now put in the retirement fund. M oney to do that wont be available next year, she said. Employees havent received a r aise for several years, she said. E very year our employees have an opportunity to do more for the same pay, she said. S he said the district administration and union representatives decided the goal is to keep the district whole and not lay off employees. Dur ing the past several y ears, the district also has concentrated on improving efficiency in administration, transportation and energy costs, she said. The district has substantially cut administration primarily at the central office with the result of remaining administrators doing more work. To cut transportation, the district has consolidated some bus stops, among other cuts. The district also has worked to save on energy. Among other things, all computers are shut off district wide as of 6 p.m., she said. F or the 2012-13 school y ear, theres no guarantee the district wont have to lay off employees, she said.SavingsF rom page A1 TELLEMYOUREADITINTHE

The biometric fingerprint readers will be distributed to road patrol officers, said the police departments public information officer Thomas Nichols. The readers will help officers when there is a suspect who is not carrying identification. A single finger is scanned, and then sent through a database to see if there are any matches. Another item the grant money will supply is for digital surveillance equipment, protective garments and crime scene equipment. One of the items will even help with training with the citys K-9 unit. The Port St. Lucie Police D epartment has canines of its own and the K-9 tracking software will track and r ecord K-9 training sessions, along with the certifications the K-9 officers and the K-9s receive, Officer Nichols said. The city is not required to match any funds for these grants. In addition, these grants are not automatically renewed every y ear. The grants which the police department applies for each has to be reapplied for and resubmitted, he said. Prior to application, the grant has to be brought before the city council to be approved, and if the grant monies are awarded, the monies are brought before the city council for acceptance. D espite all the work it takes to get them, the grants are beneficial. Any grant monies awarded to the Port St. L ucie Police Department help fund needed equipment so police can continue to effectively and efficiently perform their duties as well as keep up with technology, Officer N ichols said.GrantsF rom page A1 TREASURE COAST F irst Peoples Bank was closed by the Florida Office of F inancial Regulation on July 15, which appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as receiver. To protect depositors, the FDIC entered into a purchase and assumption agreement with Premier American Bank N ational Association, to assume all deposits of First P eoples Bank. The six branches of First P eoples Bank reopened as branches of Premier American Bank on July 16. D epositors of First Peoples B ank will automatically become depositors of Premier American Bank D eposits will continue to be insured by the FDIC, so there is no need for customers to change their banking relationship in order to r etain their deposit insurance coverage up to applicable limits. C ustomers of First Peoples B ank should continue to use their existing branch until they receive notice from Premier American Bank that it has completed systems changes to allow other Premier American Bank branches to process their accounts, as well. As of March 31, First Peoples Bank had approximately $228.3 million in total assets and $209.7 million in total deposits. In addition to assuming the deposits of the failed bank, Premier American B ank agreed to purchase essentially all of its assets. C ustomers with questions about the transaction can call the FDIC toll-free at (800) 895-3212.Interested parties also can visit www.fdic.gov/bank/individual/failed/firstpeoples.html. The FDIC estimates that the cost to the deposit insurance fund will be $7.4 million. Compared to other alternatives, Premier American Banks acquisition was the least costly r esolution for the FDICs DIF. F irst Peoples Bank is the 54th FDIC-insured institution to fail in the nation this year, and the seventh in Florida. The last FDICinsured institution closed in the state was First Commerce Bank of Tampa Bay on June 17. C ongress created the FDIC in 1933 to restore public confidence in the nations banking system.

PORT ST. LUCIE After r eviewing recommendations from the citys sign code review committee and analyzing input from the public, the Port St. Lucie City Council unanimously approved changes to the citys sign ordinance. The changes included a new requirement for businesses to obtain a permit from the city for all window/door signs and provided an 18-month grace period to allow businesses time to comply. The new requirements, r egulating the size of window signs, takes effect Sept. 8 and the citys Planning and Z oning Department is asking affected businesses to apply for the required permits to ensure the new standards are met. The Code Enforcement D epartment notified local businesses last fall and this summer about the new window requirements. The ordinance defines window sign as any sign which is attached or painted, either permanently or temporarily, on the interior or exterior of a window, glass door, glass wall, or which is placed within 12 inches of the window, glass door, or glass wall and is intended to be viewed from the outside. U nder the new requirements detailed in Section 155.08 (T) http://library.municode.co m/HTML/13414/level2/TIT XVLAUS_CH155SICO.html# TITXVLAUS_CH155SICO_S 155.08REPEIDSIREPE, the total allowable area of text and images used in window sign has increased from 20 to 40 percent of a windows total area. The change does not apply to convenience stores, which are limited under separate Florida law to a maximum of 20 percent coverage on any window. Legal window signs that existed before March 8, 2010 and complied with the prior ordinance requirement of no more than 20 percent coverage will be required to file a fee waiver application and will be issued a sign permit at no charge. A pplications for window sign permits cost $50. Up to four windows/doors may be included on one application and will be issued a permit if they comply. F or measurement purposes, the size of each individual window pane (or glass door) is calculated independently. The applications include a sketch to show the distribution and location of the 40 percent coverage of signage on the glass. A new permit will be required if there is a change in business o wnership or distribution of the signage. W indow sign permits must be prominently displayed along with the business tax receipt. The new window sign r equirements do not apply to faade signs or monument signs. The city councils tempora ry policy to allow banner signs outside businesses will r emain until Jan. 12, 2012, when businesses will be r equired to remove those signs.

If you take the time to stock up on ink cartridges before the school year starts, there wont be any last minute out-of-ink emergencies as junior tries in vain to print the science r eport he should have been working on all week.

When he got there, the driver examined the body, checked his pulse, looked for a heartbeat, but there was nothing, Maqolo told the Associated Press. B ut a day after, morgue workers heard someone shouting for help. They thought it was a ghost, the morgue owner said. I couldnt believe it! M aqolo said. I was also scared. But they are my employees, and I had to show them I wasnt scared, so I called the police. He said the man was pale when they pulled him out. H e asked, How did I get here? Maqolo said.

Fr om kansascity.com: Man attempts self-surgery with butter knife A Southern California man stuck a butter knife into his belly in a failed bid at selfsurgery to remove a painful hernia, police said. The wife of the 63-year-old G lendale man called 911 and told the emergency operator her husband was using a knife to remove a protruding hernia, Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. Officers found the man naked on a patio lounge chair outside his apartment with a 6-inch butter knife sticking out of his stomach. While waiting for paramedics, the sergeant said, the man pulled out the knife and stuffed a cigarette he was smoking into the bleeding, open wound. What he was thinking, I dont know.

Fr om telegraph.co.uk : G oldfish survive 134 days without food T wo goldfish have become the smallest and hardiest survivors of the February earthquake in Christchurch, N ew Zealand, that killed 181 people. The fish spent 134 days trapped in their tank in the citys off-limits downtown without anyone to feed them or any electricity to power their tank filter before they were discovered this month. They lived in a 26-gallon tank and may have gleaned some nutrition from eating algae growing on the tanks r ocks and walls. I t s certainly an incredible story. I wouldnt have guessed that fish could survive on their own for four months, said Paul Clarkson, curator at the Monterey B ay Aquarium in California. G oldfish are very hardy critters. He said naturally growing bacteria may have helped keep the water clean enough to sustain life. Fr om msnbc.msn.com: D angling,fake testicles get woman in trouble The police chief of a small S outh Carolina town will ask a jury to decide if a woman broke the states obscenity laws by driving a pickup truck with plastic testicles hanging from the back. B onneau Police Chief Fr anco Fuda ticketed Vir ginia Tice, 65, after spying the adornment dangling from her truck. S outh Carolina law considers a bumper sticker, decal or device indecent when it describes, in an offensive way as determined by contemporary community standards, sexual acts, excretory functions or parts of the human body. The offense carries a maximum fine of $445 but no jail time, Fuda said. This is certainly not a staple of my ticket writing in B onneau, the police chief told Reuters. The Charleston law firm Sav age & Savage will r epresent Tice for free, attorney Scott Bischoff said. S hes such a sweet lady, and she just says, I dont want to pay the fine. Well let a jury decide whether this is really criminal behavior. I dont want to take away from the importance of free speech, but its re ally comical, he said.

The average household cannot borrow and spend its way out of debt, so why do Washington bureaucrats believe that borrowing, printing and spending money will fix the problem? The tough reality is that under President Obamas watch, the goose thatlaid the golden egg is on life support. Heres why its getting uglyD emocrats have more or less been in charge of our government in Washington since the days of the New D eal starting in 1932. They have been accustomed to having their own way.Big government and big spending have been more or less accepted.Their definition of compromise has become we get most of what we want, but we may be forced to concede a few crumbs to the neanderthal Republicans.

www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, August 5, 2011 Po rt St. Lucie A13Nonprofit announces new chairwomanFORT PIERCE Julie B land, operations area manager for QVC in St. Lucie C ounty, assumed the position of board chairwoman for the United Way of St. L ucie County. Ms. Bland has served on the board of directors since 2008 and has been an active participant in the community assessment process for numerous years. I am excited for our year ahead, as the United Way continues to be a catalyst for change in our community, said Ms. Bland. W e will work harder than ever with our agencies to help them maximize their impact. Through our efforts with the volunteer center, we will help our community members become advocates for change, understanding that each can make a difference. W ith our difficult economic challenges the past few years, the impact we each can have has expanded. We have an exciting year ahead as United Way of St. L ucie County prepares to celebrate 50 years of investing in this community, she said. Ms. Bland, who has worked for QVC in various positions and locations for 18 years, started the QVC, St. L ucie's community affairs team when the contact center opened in 1999. S he has a masters degree in international business from Texas A&M University. F or more information,call (772) 464-5300 or visit www.unitedwayslc.org. Julie BlandF or Hometown News newsfp@hometownnewsol.coma fine example of folk-Victorian architecture, fearing ornate detailing, a twostory bay window and an ov erall attention to design and detail that is both unique and exceptional, he said. The timing of construction of this residence places it near the end of the (so called) Victorian period. As of 2008, he noted, the house did not appear to have been lived in for some time, but had retained its physical design integrity. A historical designation r eport states the residence exhibits all the traits of a building designed and/or built by someone with architectural training. The residence certainly r epresents a historical one of the last of its kind, in both the county and the White City area by virtue of its being a fine example of the folk-style Victorian architecture. Given the fact that as St. Lucie County continues to grow, fewer historic examples of this type remain and thus, the v alue in this particular residence is increased tremendously, the report states. That was probably an expensive home in that day, Mr. Jones said in a r ecent interview about when the house built. The historical designation report notes the location of the property has some significance. The property can lay claim to its location being in the heart of connection between White City and the Indian River Lagoon and, and as such, given White Citys role in the history of the growth of S t. Lucie County, demonstrates a strong associative attachment to the area, the report said. The house also was adjacent to a small train depot that existed at the time in White City. Ms. Caudle wrote that the house was built by my father from cypress off a wrecked barge in the river. My father was from Newton, Kansas, and a cowboy and wanderer, so seeking a new adventure he came to F lorida in 1897 or 1898. He got a job as Florida East Coast railroad agent at the little White City depot, which was right behind the house, she wrote. Ms. Caudle also noted her father bought hundreds of acres of land to grow pineapple.HouseF rom page A1 TREASURE COAST WPBF TV 25, the areas ABC TV affiliate, has launched the WPBF 25 hurricane tracker application for free download on both iPhone and Android platforms.

ducer, Mr. Beauregard and other students from Port St. L ucie High School will perform Songs for a New W orld, at the Pineapple Playhouse on Aug. 11, Aug. 12, A ug. 13 and Aug. 14. Mr. Sanders said he produced a cabaret while a senior and then decided to look into producing Songs for a N ew World, at the Pineapple P layhouse. He did research and found out that it would cost $1,200 to secure the rights to put on the show. With help from the community, which he said was crucial, he came up with the money for the show, he said. I t s not like we (students) have an extra grand lying around, he said. The community also helped in other ways, he said. Per kins Medical Supply provided a wheelchair for Mr. B eauregards role and the St. L ucie County School District loaned a ladder apparatus for the stage. Mr. Sanders said that S ongs for a New World, has become a cult classic through its sound track. Theres a story that the writer, Jason Robert Brown, created several musicals, but achieved success after combining music from several of those plays, Mr. Sanders said. S ongs for a New World, contains a series of songs connected by themes and covers such topics as motherhood, fear, relationships, war, death and survival, he said. S ome performers portray multiple characters. Mr. Beauregard, who, like other students, has performed in school plays, said he joined because Mr. S anders is a friend and he liked Songs for a New W orld. I always loved the show, he said. The songs were really cool. Throughout the show, he portrays a homeless Army veteran who is handicapped. H is songs focus on the desire to be able to walk. W ith the wheelchair, he said, It is very difficult to maneuver around the stage, he said. H illary Councillor, another student actress, said she portrays a woman in a troubled r elationship. After her boyfriend leaves her, she finds out she is pregnant, she said. S he likes her role because she fits into all the stories in S ongs for a New World. J essica Phipps, another student actress, said her inspiration to act came from an aunt who was an actress for years. H er aunt has appeared in shows at the Lyric Theatre in St uart, she said. In her role, she is referred to only as Woman No. 2, and she portrays several different people, all of whom want to be noticed, she said. A udiences should hold the students to the same standards as adult actors, Mr. S anders said. The show is designed to bring out the emotions of the audience, he said. I dont think there will be a dry eye in the house, he said. Sho ws will be at 8 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 11, Friday, A ug. 12 and Saturday, Aug. 13. A matinee will be held Sunday, Aug. 14 at 2 p.m. T ickets cost $12 and are on sale at the South Florida D ance Company, 529 Prima V ista Blvd., Suite 309, Port St. L ucie and the Pineapple Playhouse, 700 W.

Hello smart shoppers. I was doing a little r eminiscing back to my childhood as I was eating my favorite candy, peanut M&Ms. How I loved those little r ound dots. The original chocolate-only M&Ms were created in 1941 as a treat for the military they melt in y our mouth, not in your hand and only came in brown. Times were not like today and little girls only made up and wore lipstick on Halloween, so when they finally brought out M&Ms in other colors, I loved the r ed ones best because I could pretend they were lipstick. By the time the peanut M&Ms came out I was already a mother and it annoyed me how everyone gobbled them up before I could even get my fair share. I made a rule that no one followed, except my little granddaughter, Christy. You must carefully suck off the shell then the chocolate, finally eat the peanut; it was against the law to gobble them up. She still follows that law to this day, as do I. Its su mmertime, do your kids know how to swim? I was 11 before I learned. My U ncle Vinnie and Aunt Mar gie lived in Long Island, N ew Yorkon a canal. She had been a life guard and insisted it was time. With a donut shaped life preserver around my chubby body she helped me into the canal. Close to the bulk head the water was shallow. W alk out into the middle, kick your legs and swim! I was told. When the bottom dropped out I panicked. Ha ve you ever heard of anyone flipping themselves ov er? The preserver held me up all right, FEET up! She dove in, clothes and all and pulled me upright. How could anyone do what you just did? The next day I was forced to do it again. This time, make sure its heads up! I learned. Did I have a choice? This weeks column will answer a request for biscuits made with a heart healthy oil rather than solid shortening and then some sweet treats. U ntil next week!H H O O M M E E MAD MAD E E B B I I S S C C U U ITS (N ITS (N I I B) B)B iscuits made with a heart-healthy oil are easy to make and healthier. 2 cups sifted flour* 3 teaspoons baking powder 1/2-teaspoon salt 1/3-cup canola oil 2/3-cups milk *Remember, first sift the flour then measure; do not shake down.

NEAR INTERMEDIATE DISTANCE MINI IMPLANTS Many denture wearers are dissatisfied or even upset because they cant eat many of the foods they crave. Pastes, pads and worry about embarrassing slips and slides are a way of life. Dr. James Strawn has been practicing general dentistry on the Treasure Coast for over twenty years. Many of his patients wear dentures with varying degrees of success. Even a perfect fit may not provide the ability and comfort most people wish for, he said recently, and lets face it, were using a treatment method that hasnt changed much over the last hundred years. That is until now! About two years ago, Dr. Strawn began offering a new way to stabilize dentures with mini implants. This has opened a whole new world of ability and comfort, and is life-changing in most cases, he stated. One patient exclaimed that to him it is the biggest human advance since the discovery of water, he is so happy to have teeth that feel solid when he talks and enjoys a meal. I dont feel so much like an old man anymore. And it is surprisingly simple and affordable, according to Dr. Strawn. If a persons current denture is in good working condition, we can usually match it up to the new mini implants. That is a big savings right there, he said. The mini implants themselves are much less expensive than conventional implants. Minis are about one third as wide, so there is usually no need for extensive bone removal or gum surgery or months of healing. In most cases, the implants are immediately solid enough to connect to the denture and the patient walks out the first day with a stabilized denture. Each patient is shown how to snap the denture in over the implants and unsnap it too. Also, because the mini implants are so small, they can be used in situations where there would not be enough bone for conventional implants. Every person is different said Dr. Strawn, but we have found very few people who could not benefit from this treatment. A question we are often asked is, how long will they last, and how much maintenance is involved? said Dr. Strawn, He continued, My goal for each case is ten years or more. Mini implants have an excellent long term track record and have been classified by the FDA as such. Success can be affected by a persons overall health and the condition of the bone to be implanted, but we are very pleased with the results we are getting, and the patients are delighted. According to Dr. Strawn, a regular check-up and cleaning schedule is important for maintaining the function and health of the implants. While decay is no longer an issue, tartar and plaque can accumulate to cause gum inflammation and create a problem. The flexible o-rings that provide the denture grip on the implants also need to be changed about once a year. Check ups also allow for the denture itself to be checked and adjusted as needed. When its time for a new denture, can the same implants be used to hold it in? Yes, answers Dr. Strawn, as long as they are solid in place and the tissues are in good shape. We design the new denture to snap into them and continue the benefits of comfort and the solid feel. Another frequently asked question is how much discomfort and down time do patients experience after implant placement. I often compare this to having a tooth extracted said Dr. Strawn. The amount of discomfort can vary for each person, but we tailor every approach to control it so that the post operative period is as smooth and easy as possible. Dr. Strawn offers a free consultation for all who wish to consider mini implants.

One of the most ignored health problems in the countryDry Eye Syndrome also known as K eratoconjunctivitis Sicca is a progressive eye disease in which dryness is caused by decreased tear production, increased tear evaporation, or more commonly a combination of both. This condition affects 1 in 3 people over the age of 40 and has been on the upswing in younger generations as well. It is easily one of the most common eye problems patients suffer from, yet do nothing about. What are the symptoms of dry eyes? Common symptoms include transiently blurry vision, excess tearing (watering), dryness, burning, sandy feeling, and tired sensation all of which can worsens as the day goes on or with increased reading or computer use. Other symptoms include itching, stingy, redness, or pressure sensation in the eyes. Why do these things occur? A normal tear film requires a balance of not only aqueous tears, but an oil film, and mucin layer as well. Lets look at the common mechanisms for dryness, first, is aqueous tear deficiency (ATD). The lacrimal gland is unable to produce sufficient aqueous tears to keep the whole eye moisturized. The leading reasons for this include rheumatologic disease, decreased corneal nerve sensation, multiple drugs (oral contraceptives, antidepressants, antihypertensives, antihistamines, betablockers, etc). The second type of dryness is a lack of tears do to evaporation. This is caused when you have a decreased production of oil on the eye. Without the oil the aqueous layer evaporates off the eye in seconds. Age is one of the main reasons for the eye to decrease production of the oil layer of the eye. Lastly decreased mucin production can cause serious dry eye disease by not allowing tears to form on the eye properly. F ortunately this is fairly uncommon and is usually caused by poor nutrition. How can my eye care professional check me for these problems? The most important thing is to not ignore these symptoms. Visit your eye doctor for a comprehensive evaluation and complain about your dryness! Dont suffer in silence with this problem. Your eye care professional will review your medical history for risk factors. Performing a biomicroscope slit lamp examination of your tear glands and tear film will give your doctor a better idea of your specific case. Additional testing including Schirmers test, tear break up time dye testing, and tear assay analysis can help your doctor understand how your dryness is occurring. How can I treat my eyes now that I know whats going on? There are many treatments for dry eye syndrome! There are many over the counter lubricating tear drops you could use. I caution my patients that not all tear drops are the same. Many have harsh preservatives harmful for the eyes. Others are exceptionally viscous and blur the vision. Holistic hot compress and lid hygiene treatments are extremely helpful as well. If these basic treatments are not sufficient medical treatment with cyclosporine agents, non-steroidal or steroidal anti inflammatory medicines may be needed. Minor surgical procedures used to decrease tear drainage can be utilized as well. If you are suffering with any of these problems I strongly recommend you visit your eye care professional for a comprehensive dry eye evaluation.

Usually, when someone turns 50, people show up dressed in black, toting black balloons, black flowers and so forth. The idea is to tease the one turning 50 and have a little fun. On Sept. 8, when the P atrick Womens Golf Association turns 50, the atmosphere will be festive and lively. No black balloons will be tolerated. The celebration will be held at Manatee Cove Golf C ourse at Patrick Air Force B ase, starting at 12:30 pm. M embers, guests and dignitaries will meet to share refreshments and memories with this wonderful, longstanding group of women. In 1961, Lt. Gen. Bernard A. Shriver, commander of Air Force Systems Command, cut the traditional r ibbon at the opening of the Patrick AFB Golf C ourse. The course was built with a meager $45,000 budget from the C entral Welfare Fund. P ersonnel volunteered their labor and used second-hand materials to keep costs down. When completed, the course, designed by r enowned architect Robert Tr ent Jones, was the longest in Brevard County, measuring 6,125 yards and carrying a course rating of 74. And that was from the ladies tees! Over the years, tees were moved and today the course plays just ov er 5,000 yards with a r ating of 69.8 and a slope of 120 from the forward tees. The course wasnt the only thing that evolved. Over time, the clubhouse has seen changes, updates and more. In the early 1970s the nines were switched so members could watch the winners finish from the comfort of the clubhouse. Originally, the greens fees were $3 during the we ek and $5 on weekends and holidays. An annual membership was available to officers and civilians for $60 single and $72 family. Airmen received a discount and could join for $48 single and $60 family. The Patrick Womens Golf Association was organized on Aug. 10, 1961, with Terry Morrow serving as the first president. Ladies day officially began on Sept. 8 with 12 members competing. The next year was quite busy for the ladies. The association joined the F lorida State Golf Association. Golf Hall of Famer K athy Whitworth, winner of 88 professional titles, hosted a clinic and more than 300 golfers played the course during Labor Day w eekend. In 1966, Patty Berg played the course and held a clinic. During her ninehole match Berg asked, A re n t there any short holes on this course? She would return in 1984. The association formed a new tournament in 1975, the Grandmothers Tournament. A total of 42 grandmothers signed up and enjoyed the event. C ontinuing their tradition of coming up with unique tournaments and events, in 1976, the PWGA held its inaugural smokers versus non-smokers tournament with half the proceeds going to the American Cancer Society. Over the years that followed, the PWGA continued its charitable work within the community. Christmas tournaments are held to donate to the Meals on Wheels program. The annual memorial tournament r aises money for the American Cancer Society and the American Heart Association. The group, in lieu of exchanging Christmas gifts, in 1987 started a tradition of donating funds to the Florida Childrens Home in M elbourne. An annual auction of Christmas decorations and ornaments is held at the associations Christmas party with proceeds going to the Christmas basket fund for needy enlisted personnel. In 2007, member Pat P ettinato started a carepackage program for servicemen in Afghanistan, with contributions from PWGA members. Mazie Saunders began making hats for children in Afghanistan. Ev en husbands have gotten involved. Bill S hepherd, member Judy S hepherds husband, donates his tip money from driving the shuttle from the parking lot to the clubhouse on ladies day to cover postage for the packages. In 2009 Gen. Teal presented the PWGA with a certificate of appreciation and a flag for their generous support. The flag was flown on Nov. 22, 2007, over Camp Lighting Ga rd ez in Afghanistan. The PWGA celebrates the birthdays of all of its members. They have put on special celebrations for those turning 90, giving them wonderful flower bouquets. When you think about friendships, its hard to top that of members Gwena N ylander and Virginia M andeville, who began playing together two or three times a week in 1968. We have many members in their 80s, said J udy Shepherd. They are quite active and play every w eek. The 50th anniversary celebration will be dedicated to all of the past and present members of the PWGA who have made the organization not only great, but also so much fun. And to the future members who will continue to carry on. He re s to you, ladies! F ifty never looked so good.
