LUCIE Citing the need to build up its reserves, the city council voted 3-2 to propose an increase in the property tax for the next budget year.By Dawn Krebsdkrebs@hometownnewsol.com Residents might see increased tax rateSpend 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 ClickonDetroit.com : M an tries to drive home using feet as brakes, unsuccessfully The feet of a 24-year-old D etroit-area man failed him as he tried to use them to brake his pickup on a busy highway. R oseville Police Deputy Chief James Berlin said the man rolled about 2 miles on Groesbeck Highway while sticking his feet outside his truck in attempts to stop it, hitting four vehicles along the way. B erlin said the man admitted he knew the brakes weren't working but wanted to get home because he was tired and had to go to work the next day. The chief called it a case of "moronic decisionmaking," reported The D etroit News. He was unable to stop the truck at a red light at an intersection and hit two vehicles, Berlin said. He continued on and hit two more at another intersection. He said the driver was finally stopped when an officer caught up with him and told him to put the truck in park. No one was injured, but the man received a citation for reckless driving. Berlin said the man passed field sobriety tests, but his driver license also was suspended at the time of the accidents. He faces charges of reckless driving and driving with a suspended license. Fr om nydailynews.com : M an,61,suing over skimpy lifeguard trunks A 61-year-old New York man said he lost his job as a lifeguard when he refused to w ear skimpy swim trunks for the annual swim test. Ro y Lester told the New Yo rk D aily News he was forced out of the job after 40 y ears in 2007 when he wanted to take the swim test in biking shorts instead of the tiny swim trunks.

LUCIE The Po rt S t. Lucie City Council, meeting as the Port St. Lucie C ommunity Redevelopment Agency, officially heard a proposal to include approximately 3,400 acres w est of the city into its community redevelopment plan. The property is referred to as Southern Grove, and encompasses the land next to Interstate-95 from Tradition Parkway south to Becker Road. The proposal suggested including the property as part of a modified community redevelopment plan, because the recent downturn in land values have made it difficult to attract School opening goes smoothly ST. LUCIE COUNTY The first day of school went well on Monday, Aug. 22, but there were some small glitches. One parent at Samuel G aines Academy in Fort Pierce said her son was put in third grade when he should have been in second. Then somehow he was put in first grade, she said. "H e' s averaging second," said Michael Lannon, superintendent of schools. Mr. Lannon visited Samuel G aines and several other schools. He participated in K ids at Hope tunnels of hope events at those schools. Building to bring more technology classes PORT ST. LUCIE A new building being constructed on the Indian River State Co llege campus in Port St. L ucie will not only teach students the latest technologies, but also use some of those technologies itself. C alled the STEM Center, which stands for Science, T echnology, Engineering and Math, the completed center will have 56,000 square feet when it opens in the fall semester of 2012. "W ith the college experiencing 20 percent enrollment growth in the natural sciences, the STEM Center will provide much-needed classroom and laboratory space," said Casey Lunceford, associate dean of arts and sciences for Indian River State College. There will be laboratories to support the new bachelor in science biology program that will be housed in the center. The labs will support microbiology, molecular biology, genetics, botany, biochemistry and ecology. C urrently, there are 98 T echnology allows sheriff's office to educate residents, deputies on safety ST. LUCIE COUNTY Over the last 10 years, computers, cell phones and other high-tech devices have integrated themselves into society. People of all ages, from all walks of life, now use technology on an almost-daily basis to improve or benefit their lives. The St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office has recognized this, and has created different ways to use the same technology to help residents of the county be safer and better educated. "W e are in such an advanced society," said Sgt. Chris Cicio of the S t. Lucie County Sheriff's Office. There is so much available to the public, and we bear that re sponsibility of getting that information to them. We can do that by using technology that's already been created and is in use." There are a variety of ways the sheriff's office uses technology to address issues and aid residents. One of the more recognizable Heart screenings for students to be held PORT ST. LUCIE A special heart screening being conducted by a Port St. L ucie nonprofit might save the life of a student athlete. C alled "Know Your Heart: S tudent Screening 2011," the event will take place on S ept. 9 and 10 at St. Lucie W est Centennial High School. It is being organized by the Jessica Clinton M.V.P.

S uperintendent Michael Lannon said he put out a request to see if any corporations or other entities would want to help St. Lucie County in certain academic or related areas. The result is a $23 million, fivey ear partnership with Houghton M ifflin Harcourt, a Boston-based corporation that produces educational materials and textbooks.

D eborah Johnson Hawley, a school board member, said she attended the first such event for high school students at Fort Pierce Westwood High School. K ids at Hope is a philosophy that all children can succeed. The tunnels of hope are designed to convey that message to the students. Mr. Lannon said he was unaware of any major problems as schools opened. The district's enrollment, including charter schools, was expected to increase from 40,000 to around 41,000, Mr. Lannon said. The increase is nowhere what it was during the economic boon of 2005 and 2006, he said. The actual increase won't be known for several days and the economy will have some effect, Mr. Lannon said. S ome parents who expected to enroll their students in a St. Lucie County school may have been forced to move to find jobs, he said. At S amuel Gaines, a lot of parents arrived with their kids in the front lobby. M any of them had questions about bus routes and schedules and class schedules, said Carolyn Wilkins, principal. The school's enrollment was estimated at 1,350 last w eek, but it appeared that would increase, she said. S he said she hoped the w eek would proceed smoothly, despite the possibility of a hurricane affecting the area. A lot of the students we re telling her they would get a day off this week because of the storm. "I don't think any of the students are meteorologists," she said.SchoolF rom page A1 ways is through the sheriff's television show "10-8," which is the police terminology meaning "in service." "W e just revamped the whole show, and started showing episodes at the beginning of August," Sgt. Cicio said. The focus of the show is on crime prevention information. It includes showing the deputies in action, going through their day. O ther parts of the show explain the inner workings of the sheriff's office in more detail, highlighting va r ious departments and describing how they work. Pa rt of the show also discusses crime prevention and airs public service announcements. The show not only airs on the county channel SLC-TV, but individual episodes are shown on the I nternet site You Tube, under "stluciesheriff." Another place where the sheriff's office can now be found is on Facebook. "W e use Facebook to announce programs that we are doing," he said. "W e' ve been online for 14 months, and promote different campaigns, such as the teen driver challenge. We also use the site to post crime prevention tips." R ecently, a Facebook page for the office's E xplorer group was created to help show support for the St. Lucie County S heriff's Explorer Office P ost 400. P hones are another example. Not only does the sheriff's office use a re verse 911 system, where notices are sent to residents by phone to educate them about crime trends in that area, it also passes along information, such as a phone application called Child ID. This free phone app for iPhones allows users to keep up-to-date information on their phones about their children, such as photos and physical descriptions. The information can quickly be shown to law enforcement if needed, or even e-mailed. Another way technology is used involves the office's w ebsite. There, residents can find out about upcoming classes, or print out crime prevention bulletins or brochures. "F ive years ago, there would have been paper costs and printing costs associated with this," he said. "Now, this way, we make as many as needed with no production costs." One of the more recent projects is a fleet watch program. That's where residents who are part of the county utility truck department, school bus drivers, some Port St. L ucie city employees and W aste Pro employees were trained to look for suspicious activity and call 911 if needed. "I t' s extra eyes and ears," Sgt. Cicio said. "They are sent information about possible criminal activity on a regular basis, so they know what to look out for. Another tool the sheriff's office uses addresses the I nternet, and its broad appeal to both adults and children. Ass a result the sheriff's office has developed a compact disc for parents to teach them how to safeguard their children while they are on the computer. B ut technology isn't just helping residents. D eputies are also incorpor ating technology into their everyday duties. F or example, all department policies are now on the Internet. Deputies who need to read policy notices and updates are required to log in and sign off on the policy when completed. A supervisor is notified when the program finds an employee has not read the necessary information. Also, any training information that needs to be r ead is accessible by computer and must be completed before training begins. "W e' re getting more hands-on training, because all the paperwork and policy work is done beforehand," he said. R eport writing has also r eached the technology age. Deputies can now write and file their reports online, while in their patrol cars, without having to come back to the office. "R eports can be filed throughout their shift," he said. "This allows the deputies to stay in their z one and keep the residents safe." The sheriff's office is also one of first agencies in the state to have mapped out all public and private schools in the county to have that information available if necessary. "W e have blueprints, demographics, aerial photos and more," he said. "It took seven months to make." And computers don't just help deputies with the paperwork part of their duties. They also use computer simulators, which allow deputies to practice shooting skills and certain scenarios, while receiving almost immediate feedback on their performance. The sheriff's office is currently looking at training deputies with laser pistols. The pistols will enable the deputies to focus on accuracy and control in any room at the sheriff's office. The combination of all these things adds up to spending less taxpayer money. "W ith the current economy, we are always trying to be able to do more with less people," Sgt. Cicio said. "With the technology that's available, now we can do that." The St.Lucie County S heriff's Office website is www.stluciesheriff.com.T echnologyF rom page A1

Making sure children are w ell prepared when they enter public school and have the skills that are expected of them at that point. Training teachers at the elementary and middleschool level to be able to teach beginning levels of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, with the goal of having students in a better position to get high-paying jobs in scientific research and digital design. Finding a way to make sure all families have access to information on the Internet. Mr. Lannon said the district will provide about $12 million toward the partnership from textbook funds. In r eturn, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt will provide $11 million that includes some money, materials and training, he said. He said he believes H oughton Mifflin was interested in St. Lucie County because it's a stable district that is progressive and has r oom for growth. As a result of the partnership, Houghton will benefit by being able to export new education programs worldwide after fiver years, he said. Allen S. Burgtorf, senior vice president, national strategic accounts for H oughton Mifflin Harcourt, said the partnership will allow the company to expand research into other areas. S t. Lucie County School D istrict was the right size for such a partnership and the school district and the company have a long-standing r elationship, he said. S t. Lucie County needs such a partnership, as state funding declines, he said.

The HANDS Pediatric Dental Clinic will be at Digital Domain Park on Aug. 26 to hold free dental screenings for children at 6:30 p.m.Photo courtesy of the HANDS clinic Clinic to offer free dental screenings for kids PORT ST. LUCIE Coming up on its year anniversary, the HANDS Pediatric D ental Clinic will undertake its largest event yet. The clinic will offer free oral health exams to all children at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 26 at D igital Domain Park in Port S t. Lucie. "W e' ve been planning this for about two months with the St. Lucie Mets," said Doug Anderson, executive director of the HANDS Clinic in St. Lucie County, which handles medical needs for the uninsured. To date, the pediatric dental clinic has seen about 3,100 of the county's y oungest residents since its inception on Sept. 27. Since then, the mobile clinic has traveled to wherever children are located. "W e' ve taken the program to preschools and elementary schools for the children up to second grade," Mr. Anderson said. "Over the summer, we've gone to summer camps to conduct exams on children of all ages." They've been seen in other public events, as well. The dental clinic was r ecently spotted at the Fenn C enter in Fort Pierce, during a back-to-school event. "W e try to make the public aware of what we are doing," he said. They will continue their program when school starts this year. When visiting schools, program participants not only examine the students and provide toothpaste, toothbrushes and toothbrush holders, but also work with teachers to provide educational materials about dental health. Their efforts have not gone unnoticed. In March, the pediatric dental program won one of only four 2011 Children's Week Community Innovation Awards that was presented by the U nited Way of Florida and Whole Child Florida. The event at Digital Domain Park is for children up to age 18," Mr. Anderson said. "We will also be handing out free toothbrushes to the first 500 children that attend to help promote healthy dental care." Also taking place at the event is a raffle of a Mets major leaguer's authentic signed baseball bat. Proceeds will benefit the HANDS clinic. "F lorida ranks last in our children's dental care," Mr. Anderson said. "We really want to turn that around here in St. Lucie County." The free pediatric teeth screenings will take place at 6:30 p.m.Aug.26 at Digital D omain Park,525 N.W.Peacock Blvd.in Port St.Lucie.

C urrently located within the area are Torrey Pines I nstitute for Molecular Studies, a biotechnology institute, the Vaccine and Gene Therapy I nstitute, Martin Memorial Health Systems and Mann R esearch Center. Mr. Oravec said recent improvements to the area, such as updating the I-95 interchanges at Tradition Pa r kway and Becker Road, widening and developing r oads in that area, construction of Tradition Parkway and Village Parkway, and installing water, sewer and storm water there will help it ov ercome market barriers. "I f development is going to occur anywhere in our r egion in the current economic environment or even in an improving one, it will happen here first," he said, as long as we create the opportunity." The issue that exists with the land is its value has dropped considerably. Pr eviously, the land with all the recent improvements was in excess of $1 billion. How ever, in today's real estate market, the same property is now valued at approximately $100,000. This is less than the cost of $156 million in bonds that we re issued to the landowners to cover the cost of all the improvements to the area. HelpingF rom page A1The current tax rate is 5.4723 percent. If passed, the new tax rate would increase to 5.7289 percent, the suggested r ollback rate. By r aising the tax rate, also known as the millage rate, to what's called the rollback rate, the city can recover income that was lost when residents' property values declined, and allow the city to collect the same revenue in taxes that it did last year. This rate also includes additional revenue for the city from the Crosstown Parkway R oad Project, where the millage rate residents pay is 1.22 percent. The Crosstown millage rate was based on a voter referendum that determined the city could charge such a rate as necessary to retire the debt on $165 million in bonds. What the increase in the tax r ate means is that a homeo wner with a home worth $100,000, after the $50,000 homestead exemption would pay approximately the same amount if their home value dropped from the year before. If the value of their home stayed the same or increased, the homeowner would see a slight increase in their property bill. The reason for the increase was the outlook of coming budget years. When city manager Jerry B entrott presented his budget of approximately $424 million for the upcoming 2011-12 year to the council, it was $44 million less than this year's budget. He said the city is using money that was previously in r eserve to keep the budget balanced. C urrently, the city only has 4 percent set aside in contingency funds. This money would be used in an emergency, such as a hurricane. But 4 percent would only fund the city for two weeks, officials said. While the proposed tax increase initially passed, council members were split on the decision. C ouncilwoman Shannon Ma r tin was the first to recommend the increase, and cited her concern for future years. "I think our reserves need to be kept at 20 percent," she said. "And the 4 percent contingency, we absolutely have to raise that and get it back up to the 8 percent level. But the extra money would go into the future use contingency funds." V ice Mayor Linda Bartz was also concerned about the future. "I think it's important we're going to be fiscally responsible to cover that debt," she said. "I want to see us build that r eserve."

S he supported staying at the current millage rate of 5.4723 percent. Ma yo r JoAnn Faiella also indicated she would not support an increase. "I will not support the rollback rate," she said. "I can't put any more burden on the residents." When the vote came, Councilwoman Berger, Councilman Kelly and Vice Mayor Ba r tz voted for the increase and Councilwoman Berger and Mayor Faiella voted against.

A6 VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, AUGUST26, 2011 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM Raising a stinkIf there's a psychologist or psychiatrist reading this, please tell me what kind of thinking goes on in the minds of these people who take their dog to foul someone else's yard? Or do they just turn it loose in the dark of night so it won't be seen? When I see a trashcan overturned and the garbage strewn about, I think that must have been a wandering dog. M aybe these people think now that they have us convinced their child can do no wrong, it's time to convince us their dog can do no wrong. W ell, I'm not convinced, in either case. I feel they are despicable, inconsiderate, undesirable citizens. When I find dog feces in my yard I take my trowel and toss it into the street where people can drive over it and spread it around so others can enjoy it, too.A response about thrift storesP lease allow me to comment on a rant written July 29, entitled "No manners at thrift stores." I have always given to charity.In 2007 when I found I had to sell my home quickly in order to prevent foreclosure, I dropped the sale price $100,000 and luckily it sold in four days. When I found myself having to leave the area in an effort to end the intrusive thoughts from a trauma which resulted in PTSD,I found myself returning just under a year later because Ohio certainly didn't work out. I learned facts about some nonprofit charity organizations. In S eptember 2008, while in Ohio, I found myself financially broke and unable to secure employment.When I went into a thrift store and told them that I needed some winter clothes, I was told that it was against their policy to give them away.I told them that I had given thousands of quality goods to them shortly before I left Florida and that I could prove it with receipts.They sent me to another agency. B efore I sold my home, I had many garage sales.Before I hit the road north with no idea where I was headed, I gave away whatever was left to local charities. Trucks pulled up and loaded my treasures.I have dozens of receipts from four charities and can honestly say that an estimate value of the goods say, $20,000 is conservative. When I returned just before the New Year, I found myself going to these same charities I generously gave to. To my surprise, when I asked for an ironing board, they r ummaged through the five they had on hand and chose the r usted one with mildew on the covering pad.I took it home, washed the rusted metal and threw away the covering pad. When I went back months later needing some professional working clothes in the event I got interviews, I was told which racks of clothing I could choose from. Hmm.I wasn't allowed to choose two outfits from the better racks. It is difficult for me to ask for anything and yet for the first time in my life, I had to ask for assistance. It left me feeling ashamed. I learned about Charity Navigator on-line. I learned how many sick people wrap themselves in flags of caring, concern and humanitarian efforts, only to look good.I learned about the nice cars many nonprofit owners drive around in, as well as their incomes, which I'm sure would stagger many of you. M any nonprofits are not all what they are cracked up to be.I have reason to believe the rise of nonprofits over the past decade is also reason for our declining economy.The days of my generous volunteered hours and charitable heart are gone now.These are tough lessons learned and add insult to my injury.What happened to the registration law?Whatever happened to the county requirement that dogs and cats and breeders must be registered for a fee? There seems to be no verification of registration at all. P uppy mills are flourishing. Dogs and cats are being euthanized. Responsible pet owners have complied and the creeps who breed animals haven't. Why won't the county follow up on these regulations?Living next to a dumpI have a neighbor who has four unregistered cars on his property that he fills with junk. For me it's like living next to a dump. Why won't code enforcement do something about it? I have complained, yet nothing has happened. How can the city expect more businesses to come to the area when it looks like a dump?F ed up with propagandaIs everyone as disgusted and fed up with all the political propaganda we have been subjected to for the last several months? U nsolicited phone calls all hours of the day and night. By the way, political and charitable phone solicitations can't be blocked on a do not call list and no junk mail lists. I hang up as soon as the recording starts or let the answering machine screen my incoming calls, as well as take the junk political mail directly to the recycle bin in the garage. P olitical pundits, listen up. People don't want the calls or the mail and it has a negative effect instead of a positive influence, so save your campaign funds for something more productive. I read the newspapers, including editorial comments and letters from subscribers to form my opinions, as well as listen to the candidates themselves.What's e-mail?R egarding computers; some of us didn't go to school long enough to hunt and peck, never mind have e-mail, whatever that is. Don't be greedyFi rst of all, I give to charities. I give what I can. I can't give a large amount, but I try to give to different ones. One thing I don't like about some organizations is they say, "thank you for your $25 donation" before I have a chance to offer them anything. I never give them that much money, but I think they try to trick you. I don't know why they do it. I can't give that much, but I try to give what I can. I think that's unfair of them. They might end up with nothing.T oo many flaws in Medicaid systemThis is regarding Medicaid. My wife and I just got on Me dicaid. We are taking care of our three grandchildren. I am in a program called "medically needy," which means I have to have medical bills that exceed $750 a month for me to be eligible. I am not currently working because I am sick. I am unable to get a Medicaid number because my bills are not yet over $750 a month, but the bills I have can't be taken care of because they don't meet the criteria. My wife makes $1,400 a month, and our expenses are more than $1,600. I don't know where to turn.Dealing with trespassingThis is about those who want to put up signs to keep people out of their yard. We have a lot of Jehovah's Witnesses who come to our door. They think because they are a church group, that it's OK to come and harass us. In our neighborhood, we call the police, because you never know who is going to try and rob your house. Maybe they should do the same.T urn sprinklers off during rainy seasonI think sprinkler systems are wonderful to have, but I don't think they should be set to automatically turn on during the rainy season, like now. It's obscene to see sprinklers going off during a downpour, in addition to wasting of water. C an you imagine seeing that occur during Fay when we had water standing everywhere? Another thing: why are businesses, private communities and city sites allowed to water whenever it suits them, while most of us follow the regulations?Equality for allThe feminists have finally reach equality with men. Now they have as many women in the police report as there are men. What a wonderful achievement! Got something to say?

That's what government is for," Mr. Oravec said. "We do things that don't have a profit." By incorporating Southern Grove into the city's community redevelopment plan, the city would be able to develop programs to strengthen economic development there. The move would not increase taxes or take away existing taxes from the city, and any tax dollars created in that area stay there. "I ncluding Southern Grove in the CRA is not a magic bullet, it's not going to make all the problems go away," he said. "But it is a tool to make the property more valuable to encourage the owners to reinitiate the marketing efforts to sell it." The board was in unanimous agreement to take the first step and move forward with the suggestion of looking at the proposal in more detail. A public hearing will be held during a city council meeting on Aug. 29 to hear more about the proposal and its possibilities. "I t shows the end user the future," Mr. Oravec said. And it shows them the potential, without mortgaging the city's future."HelpingF rom page A4conducting experiments. There will also be different scientific learning objects placed throughout the facility, such as a stairway constructed to look like a DNA double helix and stairwells will contain the elements of the periodic table. The school recently r eceived assistance from the government when a $1.13 million economic development administration grant from the U.S. D epartment of Commerce was awarded to the college for the building. This investment will allow the college to develop a thermal energy storage plant at the building. This type of chiller plant will enhance and increase the energy efficiency of the building and the 88-acre campus," he said. The plant will shift electrical demand load to offpeak hours, resulting in savings for the college. The plant will be built with open windows and viewing areas so the engineering students can see how it works.

Fr om sfgate.com : Sw edish house up for sale, complete with skeleton A Swedish real estate agent has an unusual piece of property for sale: a fivebedroom house, complete with medieval tomb and skeleton in the cellar. The central Visby townhouse on the Baltic S ea island of Gotland was built in 1750 on the foundations of a Russian church. The kitchen lies on the presbytery, and the tomb containing the skeleton visible through a glass panel is in the cellar. The real estate agency's o wner Leif Bertwig said there is no reason to be afraid as the skeleton "lies in consecrated soil and r ests in peace." Be r twig said the remains likely belong to a Russian man who died some 800 y ears ago. The starting price for the house all included is 4.1 million kronor ($640,000).

Ad am's Air Conditioning added three positions to its payroll this year, and is set to bring on 50 new hires within the next 90 days, said A dam Emanuel, the company's president. The failed economy has created an opportunity for us to really expand our business," said Mr. Emanuel. That's really the bottom line. In an economy where a lot of businesses are limiting and shutting down, with less competition, we are making the most of the situation and growing." In the last five years, the company that started in 1997 serving Martin and St. L ucie counties has expanded its customer base across the Treasure Coast and No r thern Palm Beach. W ithin the next three months, its business plan includes a strategy to hire technicians across Florida as part of a statewide expansion. It 's a move that will help the company continue to deliver the high level of customer service that earned it an "A+" rating from the Better Business Bureau for its contractual, maintenance, installation and repair of air conditioning, heating and ventilation systems for residential and commercial clients. W ith 30 to 50 service calls per day in its current market, company representatives said Adam's Air Conditioning is positioned for growth. "I t' s just as much a question of geography as it is a question of making ourselves available 24 hours a day," said Ronnie DeChambeau, one of the employees to benefit from the company's expansion. He was promoted to sales and marketing manager in May. A dam's Air Conditioning has a staff of 14 and a 24hour customer service line. It serves hospitals and several customers in the healthcare industry, so a technician typically r esponds to each client within two hours. "O ur residential customers also benefit from that extremely high level of service," Mr. Emanuel said. "O ur slogan is on time, anytime, no overtime.' We're the greatest and the best. A dam's Air Conditioning's corporate office is located at 850 N.W.Federal Highway, S tuart.Its warehouse and r epair shop is located at 1547 S.E.Village Green Drive,Port St.Lucie.For more information,call (772) 337-6559.

Special event weekend to promote businessesPORT ST. LUCIE Over the past year, Port St. Lucie has held free business workshops in a variety of languages, lowered fees for contractors and businesses and sponsored workshops for real estate agents. No w it plans to waive fees for businesses in the city that want to hold a special event on the weekend of No v. 11 and 12, just in time for the upcoming holiday shopping season. "I t is an opportunity for all the businesses in Port St. L ucie to promote their businesses that weekend for free," said Joel Dramis of the building department. No r mally, it would cost approximately $375 for a business to hold a special event in the city for various fees, including permitting, sign and removal fees. If the business is located in St. L ucie West, there is an additional $100 fee. B ut on this weekend, businesses that register their special event with the city would have all fees waived, including those from St. Lucie West. "W e talked to the folks in S t. Lucie West and they said they would waive their fees if we waived ours," Mr. Dr amis said. The special events the businesses might have on that day range from coupons to giveaways.

Church, and others have objected to any funding going to Planned Parenthood because it provides abortion services elsewhere. B ut Children's Services C ouncil members have maintained the programs they have funded have nothing to do with abortion and accomplish the goals of the council. In light of the controversy, the council earlier this year submitted proposals for two programs: Comprehensive, r esearched-based yeararound, after-school programs that involve families, with special consideration for Creole and Spanishspeaking families.

"J essica had two physicals within six months of each other, and it was never spotted," said her mother, Cheryl Lalloo. "Jessica is the whole r eason we are doing this. She is the whole reason my family does what we do." Ms. Lalloo heads up the foundation, which has worked since Jessica's death to make sure every school has an automated external defibr illator, a device used to shock the heart. There was no defibr illator at the school when J essica died. "N ow every school in St. Lu cie County has at least one," she said. "There is between one and five defibrillators at every school. We place them and hope they never have to be used. But so far, they've saved five lives." Ms. Lalloo said between 600 and 800 students are expected to attend the heart screening, the first one for the foundation. "W e' ve always wanted to do a heart screening to help students catch any problems," she said. "The students have to have physicals before they do any sports, but their hearts are never tested." The event is for all middleand high-school students. The cost of the heart screening is $20, which will cover an electrocardiogram telehealth technology screening. Normal cost for an ECG r uns approximately $1,000. The screening is being conducted by CompuMed, in partnership with Indian River S tate College, the Heart Institute at Lawnwood Regional and St. Lucie Medical Center. I nterested students are asked to register for the screening ahead of time. While this is planned to become an annual event, Ms. Lalloo wanted the first one to be held at St. Lucie West Centennial High. "W e wanted to do the first heart screening there, because that's where we lost J essica," she said. The foundation is looking for anyone who would like to volunteer to help on that day with registrations, refreshments or assisting the nurses. "W e have a great support system," she said. "The community and school board are always supportive and extremely helpful with whatever we do." They are also looking for sponsors for the event. "W e want everyone to have the chance to have the heart screen," Ms. Lalloo said. The Know Your Heart:Student Screening 2011 will take place Sept.9 and 10 in the g ymnasium of St.Lucie West C entennial High School,1485 S.W.Cashmere Blvd.in Port St. L ucie.It is open to all middleand high-school students for $20.To register for the event or for more information,call (772) 215-1912.HeartF rom page A1

for the people that come in by way of a special or a discount," he said. "Customers will get a chance to see what the business is all about." An informal poll by the city's business department indicated positive interest in the event. The department contacted 125 businesses with the event information, and all 125 stated they would be interested in participating. B usinesses that register with the city for the special event weekend will also have their information posted on the city's website. There will be a special link on the website for people to see what is available to them in the city," Mr. Dr amis said. The information will include information about the business, along with details on its special event. He said the idea for the special weekend came from a brainstorming session with staff. "I t shows people that they can shop Port St. Lucie first, without leaving the city," he said. The business department is always trying to find a way to help the businesses in the city, he said. "I f we have the opportunity to do it for free, we can pass along the savings to the businesses," he said. "We're not in the business to make money. We look at the serving the businesses the cheapest way possible, and pass that savings along." The event will not cost the city any money, either. The businesses will go online to r egister for the event, and the business department will e-mail a permit for the event to them. "I t' s important for government to assume the role of helping the businesses here," Mr. Dramis said. "It's the right thing to do."

This is car dealer jargon for switching a customer who originally intended to buy a car to leasing the car. Of course the motivation to do this is more profit for the dealer and a bigger commission to the salesman. That's not to say that leasing a car is always more costly than buying one, but it can be if you're not careful. And not being careful is exactly what happens when a purchase intender becomes a lessee. He re 's how it happens. Y ou come into the dealership to buy a car. You may have seen the dealer's advertisement in the newspaper or TV for a particular model. More than likely, you are prepared to make a down payment and/or trade in y our old vehicle. You have a monthly payment in mind because almost everybody has a budget and we usually translate most purchases into whether or not we can fit them into our monthly budgets. You negotiate the best price you can to buy the car, or maybe the sale price is good enough. No w the salesman or more often the F&I manager/business manager tells you what y our monthly payment will be. Let's say that you have a trade-in worth $15,000 and aren't going to put any cash down. The finance and insurance manager tells you your monthly payment will be $427 per month. But that's way more than you can afford and you tell him y ou can't buy the car because you can't afford that big a payment. He asks you how much youDon't be flipped' to a lease ON CARSEARL STEWART See S TEWART, A11 impersonators in Rome U ndercover police have donned togas, capes and sandals to stop a turf battle among Italians who impersonate gladiators outside the Coliseum and other landmarks in Rome and make money by posing for camera carrying tourists. The trade has been tolerated for years, but that was before about 20 practitioners began assaulting and intimidating their competitors to take over lucrative tourist spots. So police decided to intervene disguised as gladiators, garbage collectors and tourists, but their operation at the ancient arena and the nearby Piazza V enezia wasn't easy. P olice impersonating gladiators were attacked when they told competitors to leave the scene, but police dressed as garbage collectors and tourists came to their rescue. W eirdF rom page A6

Now he has you set up perfectly for the lease flip. Mrs. Smith, I think I have just the right thing for you. What would you say if I told y ou that you can drive that new car home today for just $349 per month?" Y ou say, with glee, "We have a deal!" G uess what? You've just been flipped. If you had bought the car at the advertised price or negotiated a very good price, the dealer probably would have made about $1,000 profit and the salesman would have made about a $200 commission. Now that yo u' ve let yourself be flipped to lease, the dealer could be making $15,000 and the salesman could be making a $3,000 commission. I'm not exaggerating. I get calls weekly from victims of lease flips. Many of the callers are elderly and many of them are widows who never bought a car before, but had relied on their husbands. There's no law that limits the profit that a dealer can make when he sells or leases a car. Ten thousand, $15,000 and even $20,000 profits are made and usually on leases. The dealers can do this by using the trade-in as a capital cost reduction on the lease, but allowing less for the trade than it is actually worth. In the example above, y our trade-in may be worth $15,000 but you were allowed only $5,000 to r educe the capitalized costs of the lease. Also, the dealer could have raised the price of the car you negotiated or the sale price to MSRP or even 110 percent of MSRP, which is allowable by the leasing companies. By manipulating the number of months of the lease and the down payment (capitalized cost r eduction), a dealer can give y ou as low a payment as you ask for and still make an exorbitant profit. M ost buyers are so focused on monthly payments that they don't carefully analyze what they are agreeing to and signing. The shorter the number of months of a lease, the greater impact the down payment has on the monthly payment. A $5,000 down payment r educes the monthly payment on a 36-month lease by $139 per month, $208 on a 24-month lease, and $417 on 12-month lease. I ncredibly, many victims of the lease flip, never thought about the fact that after the 12, 24 or 36 month term of the lease, they own nothing. After 36 months, a car with a good resale value should be worth about half of what you paid for it. M any people who have never leased before think they can bring their leased car back early if they want. Leasing is not renting and y ou can bring your car back early only if you make all of the remaining lease payments. If y ou had bought the car for $30,000 and financed it for 36 months, you would have about $15,000 in equity at the end of 36 months and no monthly payments. You were building equity with every monthly payment in the purchase, but you were building zero equity with y our 36 lease payments. As I said before, don't let this frighten you from ever leasing a car. Leasing can be a good choice and sometimes the best choice. You can find six articles I've written for Hometown News and for my blog at www.EarlStewartOnCars.co m. "Lease a new car before y ou buy it," "Car leasing booby traps," "Be very careful when leasing a car," The lease acquisition fee: the bank's gotcha," "Buy or lease your car at the right time of year" and "Should I buy or lease my next car?" StewartF rom page A10students," he said. The first part of the partnership, the parent academy, came about, in part, from a local attorney reading about such a program in other areas of the country. Pa r ents attend workshops on various topics to help them help their children, he said. It's a good idea, but the district has no funding to implement it, he said. As part of the partnership, H oughton Mifflin will pay for a director and also construction of an office for the program, he said. The second part involves children, beginning at age 3 through third grade, Mr. Lannon said. Oftentimes, children who live in poverty enter the school district without the same skills as their classmates from more affluent families, he said. The district wants to help create a level playing field. "W e' re not trying to bring anyone down," he said. "W e' re trying to lift everyone up." To accomplish that, the district plans to develop a curriculum that will be provided, without charge, to all pre-school providers. The only string attached is that providers must use it to help the children become better prepared, he said. The third part is to train primary school teachers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. "O ur teachers are smart," he said. "They didn't get the training. Many of the teachers are not skilled in the hard sciences." To accomplish this, he said, the district will buy materials at a 50 percent discount from Houghton M ifflin. H oughton Mifflin will provide trainers for the teachers, he said. U ltimately, Mr. Lannon said, he envisions a situation where students will be able to do virtual scientific experiments on computers that will enable them to learn skills at an earlier age. In the fourth area, the school district will work to make educational materials and textbooks available online, he said. Du r ing the next five years, the district will work to find or develop an affordable device that would be available to all students to allow them to access that information, he said. "I envision a time when backpacks will be a thing of the past," he said. W ith changes in the job market, it is critical to get students more prepared, he said. Mr. Burgtorf said the Du v al County School District has a pilot program where some students are equipped with boxes that connect to a television. Through that box, parents and students receive information via the television, he said.P artnershipF rom page A3

LUCIE R esidents visiting Abingdon at Tradition to attend a health fair on Aug. 31 will quickly realize why it's been dubbed, "Not Your Typical H ealth Fair." This free event will feature a variety of nonprofit groups handing out information to the community, as well as a va r iety of activities. There will be approximately 22 exhibitors," said Chris Collins, director of community relations for the facility. "U nfortunately, due to an ov erwhelming interest and support, we had to turn many potential exhibitors away this year." The nonprofit groups coming out to the event include the Alzheimer's Association, which will distribute free safe return bracelets; the Council on Aging of St. Lucie County; C ouncil on Aging of Martin C ounty; American Red Cr oss; Treasure Coast R esource Center for the B lind and Visually Impaired; The Big Red Bus bloodmobile; Martin Memorial H ealth Systems, St. Lucie M edical Center, Lawnwood M edical Center and Alzheimer's Community Ca re. It took the organizers approximately three months to plan the event. This began with our wellness coordinator, Sadie Br ookman, as a resource for our members who live with us, as many have moved from other areas and do not know the St. Lucie community well," Ms. Collins said. "It grew from there, and became open to the public." In addition to the nonprofit groups, there will be hand paraffin treatments and interactive classes featuring cooking, water aerobics, jazzercise, chair Pilates and chair massages. CVS pharmacy will be on hand to provide free flu shots to seniors with Medicare B. They will also vaccinate those under 65 with limited insurance. Also, HCA hospital systems will have a cardiologist and dietician at the event to speak on health-related topics. There are great contacts that are happy to help and be a resource to the community at large, so it was easy to find exhibitors," Ms. Collins said. They organizers are already planning for this expo becoming an annual event. "W e are looking forward to an even bigger event next y ear," she said.

T here are only so many productive hours in a day. Work eight, sleep eight and use the other eight to do the necessary things for your life that keep you healthy, informed, relaxed and in balance. Yours is a good life well lived.Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21Courage in the face of adversity is your strongest virtue. Many quit or give up in the face of adversity. You keep on keeping on.

Yeah!Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19Act decisively on your immediate goals. You are on the edge of unprecedented growth. It's like, "I've done my work, it's time to play." Now we're talking.

She also keeps a strong focus on academics. The children here only practice two, maybe three, times a week," she said. This gives them time to keep up with their schoolwork and still have time with their families." Another of her focuses is including special needs children in the classes. "E very single student performs in the recital," she said. "I know they all can do it, because I believe in all of them. And when I believe in them, they believe in themselves."

Hello smart shoppers, hope you had a good w eek. Last week, I gave you the recipe for my spaghetti sauce. This week's column offers great additions for the sauce that make it perfect for a special dinner. A casatta cake, an Italian specialty, tops off the menu. Ricotta, the soft creamy cheese used in pasta dishes is also used in fillings and frostings for cakes. Love cannoli? The filling is made with ricotta. Enjoy, see you next week!IT IT ALIAN M ALIAN M EA EA TB TB ALLS ALLS Ser Ser ves 4 or more ves 4 or more regular or low fat regular or low fatWhen you use fresh ground beef, meat balls can be lowfat. My meatball r ecipe was handed down to my mother. A combination of ground beef, pork and veal can be used but we prefer them only with beef. I can remember as a teenager being told, "There are seven ingredients in the r ecipe plus the meat." You must count on your fingers: salt, pepper, egg, garlic, cheese, parsley and bread. If y ou use regular ground chuck or beef, which contains a fair amount of fat, the seven ingredients still holds true. When using fresh, virtually fat-free ground beef, an eighth ingredient must be added to keep the meatballs from going flat; that is bread crumbs. NOTE: Using fresh ground beef? Add 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil per pound. 1 pound fresh ground fat-free" beef 2 large eggs or equivalent egg substitute or 3 egg whites 4 slices white bread or equivalent of Italian bread 2 medium cloves garlic, chopped 1 tablespoon plain bread crumbs 1 teaspoon salt 1/2-teaspoon black pepper 5 or 6 sprigs fresh Italian parsley, chopped, or 1 tablespoon dried 1 handful grated Romano cheese N ote: Double or triple the r ecipe to freeze the extra for future meals. S oak bread in water, squeeze dry. If using Italian bread (preferred), remove as much crust as possible. P lace all ingredients in a bowl and mix with your hands. Shape into balls a little larger than a golf ball. Y ears ago you would fry the meatballs, but now, to cut down on fat, we bake them. Place on a cookie sheet that has been treated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. M eatballs should be cooked in the spaghetti sauce an additional 30 minutes. Over-cooking will make them fall apart.IT IT ALIAN S ALIAN S AU AU S S A A G G E E FO FO R S R S P P A A G G H H E E T T TI TI S S AU AU C C E ETo r educe the fat, cut sausage into 3or 4-inch pieces. Prick all over with a fork and bake on racks in a cookie sheet at 350 for about 30 minutes. Add to spaghetti sauce and cook for 30 minutes longer. HINT: If you use both sweet and hot sausages, place a toothpick in the hot sausage to avoid unwelcome surprises.PO PO R R K S K S P P AR AR E R E R I I B B S S FO FO R S R S P P A A G G H H E E T T TI TI S S AU AU C C E E Ser Ser ves 4-5 ves 4-5C ut ribs apart between each bone and trim as much fat as possible.

Years ago flank steak was used; today we use round steak. This is my family's recipe.

I presume from her instructions it is a high cake. 1 sponge cake 1/3-cup raspberry jam 1 cup confectioner's sugar 1 cup candied fruit 1 container (2 pounds) r icotta 3/4-tablespoon orange liqueur 3 squares semi-sweet chocolate, chopped fine 5 tablespoons pistachio nuts, chopped B eat ricotta in a large bowl until smooth. Add sugar, chocolate, nuts and candied fruit (save best pieces of fruit to decorate top of cake). NOTE: Candied fruit is hard to find during the year, buy extra around the holidays or ask for it at your local bakery. C ut cake into thin layers (3 or 4), moisten top of layers with liqueur, spread a little jam over top of layer and top with some ricotta mixture. Continue stacking layers, leaving top of cake plain. Chill until set, (at least 2 hours). Cover top with leftover ricotta mixture or dust with confectioner's sugar. Decorate with r eserved fruit.

This Labor Day weekend, please think about the men and women serving to protect and defend our freedom. Ev eryday, the men and women of our armed forces put their lives on the line so we can safely enjoy our swimming pools, cookouts, baseball games and time with our loved ones. When they come home, many return bearing the scars of combat and service. Others come home in a simple, flagdraped coffin. P atriot Golf Day is about all of these fine men and women. If you tee it up over the holiday, please do so at a participating course. Proceeds from your rounds will go to the families of those who have been injured or killed defending our great nation. To fully appreciate Patriot Golf Day's mission, it's important to know how it came to be. Br ad and Brock Bucklin, twins born in Grand Rapids, M ich., were two of five sons of Duane and Dawn Bucklin of Caledonia, Mich. Br ock followed his brother into the military, enlisting a y ear after him in August 2004. Br ock told his father he planned to enter Officer Tr aining School and make the U.S. Army his career. After he got in the service, he found his way," said D uane "Buck" Bucklin, 71. Br ock wasassigned to the 1st Battalion, 68th Armor R egiment, 3rd Heavy Brigade C ombat Team and 4th I nfantry Division of Fort C arson, Colo. In December 2005, he received his call to service in Iraq. At age 28 on May 31, 2006, Cpl. Brock Bucklin was the acting mayor of Forward O perating Base GABE on the outskirts of Baqubah, 40 miles northeast of Baghdad. The mayor of FOB GABE was the go-to guy when soldiers had problems or needs with their facilities. It was Brock's duty to coordinate and manage the independent contractors and support resources to address those needs. On this particular day, he was assigned to assist a contractor in identifying equipment and property for transport as FOB GABE was closing down. The civilian contractors we re r esponsible for moving concrete barriers. While they we re moving them onto trailers for transport, one of the trucks became stuck. They decided to pull the truck with another. A cargo chain was attached between the two trucks. As the workers stood off to the side, the chain snapped. A broken link found Brock, slicing an artery in his neck. A Special Forces medic arrived to provide treatment. E ighteen minutes later, a MEDEVAC helicopter transported him to LSA Anaconda Air Force Hospital. A half-hour later, Brock died. "I t is a tragedy when a son or daughter dies before you. It is unnatural. It's the thing that's unacceptable and most troubling," said his father. Br ad, stationed in Germany, pressed his military command to be allowed to accompany his brother's coffin home to Grand Rapids. Then-Capt. Dan Rooney, a PGA Professional from Br oken Arrow, Okla., and member of the Oklahoma Air N ational Guard, was on the flight as it carried home the body of Cpl. Bucklin. The plane landed at 11:35 p .m., and Rooney watched through the plane's window as the Bucklins awaited Brad and the coffin of their late son. Brock's son, Jacob, was clinging to the leg of his mother. The pilot requested that passengers remain in their seats until the remains of the fallen hero could be transferred to his family. Rooney looked up and saw that half of the passengers had left the plane. At that moment, R ooney said, he was inspired to give back to fallen heroes' families. A little over a year after the funeral, Rooney called Buck to let him know his son and the families of those who had perished or become disabled in the line of duty would not be forgotten. "I am an ordinary person that has been blessed with the extraordinary opportunity to be the flight leader on the Patriot Golf Day mission," said Rooney. "I simply planted a small seed, which has been cultivated by PGA professionals and great citizens around the United States." J acob is now 8 and the r ecipient of a scholarship generated from the Folds of H onor Foundation and its largest fundraiser, Patriot Golf Day. "I t was good to know that something good comes from this," said Buck. There are a lot of other sons, a lot of other daughters who did not come home. I'm a patriot and I have served in the military. We only have our freedom because of our military. "N ever could I imagine what it was that Dan R ooney wanted to do," Buck said. "But I know that my son would be extremely proud."

Heres a sampling, edited for length. Remember, just because its online doesnt mean its true! Fr om ClickonDetroit.com : M an tries to drive home using feet as brakes, unsuccessfully The feet of a 24-year-old D etroit-area man failed him as he tried to use them to brake his pickup on a busy highway. R oseville Police Deputy Chief James Berlin said the man rolled about 2 miles on Groesbeck Highway while sticking his feet outside his truck in attempts to stop it, hitting four vehicles along the way. B erlin said the man admitted he knew the brakes werent working but wanted to get home because he was tired and had to go to work the next day. The chief called it a case of moronic decisionmaking, reported The D etroit News. He was unable to stop the truck at a red light at an intersection and hit two vehicles, Berlin said. He continued on and hit two more at another intersection. He said the driver was finally stopped when an officer caught up with him and told him to put the truck in park. No one was injured, but the man received a citation for reckless driving. Berlin said the man passed field sobriety tests, but his driver license also was suspended at the time of the accidents. He faces charges of reckless driving and driving with a suspended license.

The property is referred to as Southern Grove, and encompasses the land next to Interstate-95 from Tradition Parkway south to Becker Road. The proposal suggested including the property as part of a modified community redevelopment plan, because the recent downturn in land values have made it difficult to attract School opening goes smoothly ST. LUCIE COUNTY The first day of school went well on Monday, Aug. 22, but there were some small glitches. One parent at Samuel G aines Academy in Fort Pierce said her son was put in third grade when he should have been in second. Then somehow he was put in first grade, she said. H e s averaging second, said Michael Lannon, superintendent of schools. Mr. Lannon visited Samuel G aines and several other schools.

LUCIE A new building being constructed on the Indian River State Co llege campus in Port St. L ucie will not only teach students the latest technologies, but also use some of those technologies itself. C alled the STEM Center, which stands for Science, T echnology, Engineering and Math, the completed center will have 56,000 square feet when it opens in the fall semester of 2012. W ith the college experiencing 20 percent enrollment growth in the natural sciences, the STEM Center will provide much-needed classroom and laboratory space, said Casey Lunceford, associate dean of arts and sciences for Indian River State College. There will be laboratories to support the new bachelor in science biology program that will be housed in the center. The labs will support microbiology, molecular biology, genetics, botany, biochemistry and ecology.

LUCIE COUNTY Over the last 10 years, computers, cell phones and other high-tech devices have integrated themselves into society. People of all ages, from all walks of life, now use technology on an almost-daily basis to improve or benefit their lives. The St. Lucie County Sheriffs Office has recognized this, and has created different ways to use the same technology to help residents of the county be safer and better educated. W e are in such an advanced society, said Sgt. Chris Cicio of the S t. Lucie County Sheriffs Office. There is so much available to the public, and we bear that re sponsibility of getting that information to them. We can do that by using technology thats already been created and is in use. There are a variety of ways the sheriffs office uses technology to address issues and aid residents. One of the more recognizable Heart screenings for students to be held PORT ST.

D eborah Johnson Hawley, a school board member, said she attended the first such event for high school students at Fort Pierce Westwood High School. K ids at Hope is a philosophy that all children can succeed. The tunnels of hope are designed to convey that message to the students. Mr. Lannon said he was unaware of any major problems as schools opened. The districts enrollment, including charter schools, was expected to increase from 40,000 to around 41,000, Mr. Lannon said. The increase is nowhere what it was during the economic boon of 2005 and 2006, he said. The actual increase wont be known for several days and the economy will have some effect, Mr. Lannon said. S ome parents who expected to enroll their students in a St. Lucie County school may have been forced to move to find jobs, he said. At S amuel Gaines, a lot of parents arrived with their kids in the front lobby. M any of them had questions about bus routes and schedules and class schedules, said Carolyn Wilkins, principal. The schools enrollment was estimated at 1,350 last w eek, but it appeared that would increase, she said. S he said she hoped the w eek would proceed smoothly, despite the possibility of a hurricane affecting the area. A lot of the students we re telling her they would get a day off this week because of the storm. I dont think any of the students are meteorologists, she said.SchoolF rom page A1 ways is through the sheriffs television show -8, which is the police terminology meaning in service. W e just revamped the whole show, and started showing episodes at the beginning of August, Sgt. Cicio said. The focus of the show is on crime prevention information. It includes showing the deputies in action, going through their day. O ther parts of the show explain the inner workings of the sheriffs office in more detail, highlighting var ious departments and describing how they work. Pa rt of the show also discusses crime prevention and airs public service announcements. The show not only airs on the county channel SLC-TV, but individual episodes are shown on the I nternet site You Tube, under stluciesheriff. Another place where the sheriffs office can now be found is on Facebook. W e use Facebook to announce programs that we are doing, he said. W e ve been online for 14 months, and promote different campaigns, such as the teen driver challenge. We also use the site to post crime prevention tips. R ecently, a Facebook page for the offices E xplorer group was created to help show support for the St. Lucie County S heriffs Explorer Office P ost 400. P hones are another example. Not only does the sheriffs office use a re verse 911 system, where notices are sent to residents by phone to educate them about crime trends in that area, it also passes along information, such as a phone application called Child ID. This free phone app for iPhones allows users to keep up-to-date information on their phones about their children, such as photos and physical descriptions. The information can quickly be shown to law enforcement if needed, or even e-mailed. Another way technology is used involves the offices w ebsite. There, residents can find out about upcoming classes, or print out crime prevention bulletins or brochures. F ive years ago, there would have been paper costs and printing costs associated with this, he said. Now, this way, we make as many as needed with no production costs. One of the more recent projects is a fleet watch program. Thats where residents who are part of the county utility truck department, school bus drivers, some Port St. L ucie city employees and W aste Pro employees were trained to look for suspicious activity and call 911 if needed. I t s extra eyes and ears, Sgt. Cicio said. They are sent information about possible criminal activity on a regular basis, so they know what to look out for. Another tool the sheriffs office uses addresses the I nternet, and its broad appeal to both adults and children. Ass a result the sheriffs office has developed a compact disc for parents to teach them how to safeguard their children while they are on the computer. B ut technology isnt just helping residents. D eputies are also incorpor ating technology into their everyday duties. F or example, all department policies are now on the Internet. Deputies who need to read policy notices and updates are required to log in and sign off on the policy when completed. A supervisor is notified when the program finds an employee has not read the necessary information. Also, any training information that needs to be r ead is accessible by computer and must be completed before training begins. W e re getting more hands-on training, because all the paperwork and policy work is done beforehand, he said. R eport writing has also r eached the technology age. Deputies can now write and file their reports online, while in their patrol cars, without having to come back to the office. Reports can be filed throughout their shift, he said. This allows the deputies to stay in their z one and keep the residents safe. The sheriffs office is also one of first agencies in the state to have mapped out all public and private schools in the county to have that information available if necessary. W e have blueprints, demographics, aerial photos and more, he said. It took seven months to make. And computers dont just help deputies with the paperwork part of their duties. They also use computer simulators, which allow deputies to practice shooting skills and certain scenarios, while receiving almost immediate feedback on their performance. The sheriffs office is currently looking at training deputies with laser pistols. The pistols will enable the deputies to focus on accuracy and control in any room at the sheriffs office. The combination of all these things adds up to spending less taxpayer money. W ith the current economy, we are always trying to be able to do more with less people, Sgt. Cicio said. With the technology thats available, now we can do that. The St.Lucie County S heriffs Office website is www.stluciesheriff.com.T echnologyF rom page A1

Making sure children are w ell prepared when they enter public school and have the skills that are expected of them at that point. Training teachers at the elementary and middleschool level to be able to teach beginning levels of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, with the goal of having students in a better position to get high-paying jobs in scientific research and digital design. Finding a way to make sure all families have access to information on the Internet. Mr. Lannon said the district will provide about $12 million toward the partnership from textbook funds. In r eturn, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt will provide $11 million that includes some money, materials and training, he said. He said he believes H oughton Mifflin was interested in St. Lucie County because its a stable district that is progressive and has r oom for growth. As a result of the partnership, Houghton will benefit by being able to export new education programs worldwide after fiver years, he said. Allen S. Burgtorf, senior vice president, national strategic accounts for H oughton Mifflin Harcourt, said the partnership will allow the company to expand research into other areas. S t. Lucie County School D istrict was the right size for such a partnership and the school district and the company have a long-standing r elationship, he said. S t.

The HANDS Pediatric Dental Clinic will be at Digital Domain Park on Aug. 26 to hold free dental screenings for children at 6:30 p.m.Photo courtesy of the HANDS clinic Clinic to offer free dental screenings for kids PORT ST. LUCIE Coming up on its year anniversary, the HANDS Pediatric D ental Clinic will undertake its largest event yet. The clinic will offer free oral health exams to all children at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 26 at D igital Domain Park in Port S t. Lucie. W e ve been planning this for about two months with the St. Lucie Mets, said Doug Anderson, executive director of the HANDS Clinic in St. Lucie County, which handles medical needs for the uninsured. To date, the pediatric dental clinic has seen about 3,100 of the countys y oungest residents since its inception on Sept. 27. Since then, the mobile clinic has traveled to wherever children are located. W e ve taken the program to preschools and elementary schools for the children up to second grade, Mr. Anderson said. Over the summer, weve gone to summer camps to conduct exams on children of all ages. Theyve been seen in other public events, as well. The dental clinic was r ecently spotted at the Fenn C enter in Fort Pierce, during a back-to-school event. W e try to make the public aware of what we are doing, he said. They will continue their program when school starts this year. When visiting schools, program participants not only examine the students and provide toothpaste, toothbrushes and toothbrush holders, but also work with teachers to provide educational materials about dental health. Their efforts have not gone unnoticed. In March, the pediatric dental program won one of only four 2011 Childrens Week Community Innovation Awards that was presented by the U nited Way of Florida and Whole Child Florida. The event at Digital Domain Park is for children up to age 18, Mr. Anderson said. We will also be handing out free toothbrushes to the first 500 children that attend to help promote healthy dental care. Also taking place at the event is a raffle of a Mets major leaguers authentic signed baseball bat. Proceeds will benefit the HANDS clinic. F lorida ranks last in our childrens dental care, Mr. Anderson said. We really want to turn that around here in St. Lucie County. The free pediatric teeth screenings will take place at 6:30 p.m.Aug.26 at Digital D omain Park,525 N.W.Peacock Blvd.in Port St.Lucie.

C urrently located within the area are Torrey Pines I nstitute for Molecular Studies, a biotechnology institute, the Vaccine and Gene Therapy I nstitute, Martin Memorial Health Systems and Mann R esearch Center. Mr. Oravec said recent improvements to the area, such as updating the I-95 interchanges at Tradition Par kway and Becker Road, widening and developing r oads in that area, construction of Tradition Parkway and Village Parkway, and installing water, sewer and storm water there will help it ov ercome market barriers. I f development is going to occur anywhere in our r egion in the current economic environment or even in an improving one, it will happen here first, he said, as long as we create the opportunity. The issue that exists with the land is its value has dropped considerably. Pr eviously, the land with all the recent improvements was in excess of $1 billion. How ever, in todays real estate market, the same property is now valued at approximately $100,000. This is less than the cost of $156 million in bonds that we re issued to the landowners to cover the cost of all the improvements to the area. HelpingF rom page A1The current tax rate is 5.4723 percent. If passed, the new tax rate would increase to 5.7289 percent, the suggested r ollback rate. By r aising the tax rate, also known as the millage rate, to whats called the rollback rate, the city can recover income that was lost when residents property values declined, and allow the city to collect the same revenue in taxes that it did last year. This rate also includes additional revenue for the city from the Crosstown Parkway R oad Project, where the millage rate residents pay is 1.22 percent. The Crosstown millage rate was based on a voter referendum that determined the city could charge such a rate as necessary to retire the debt on $165 million in bonds. What the increase in the tax r ate means is that a homeo wner with a home worth $100,000, after the $50,000 homestead exemption would pay approximately the same amount if their home value dropped from the year before. If the value of their home stayed the same or increased, the homeowner would see a slight increase in their property bill. The reason for the increase was the outlook of coming budget years. When city manager Jerry B entrott presented his budget of approximately $424 million for the upcoming 2011-12 year to the council, it was $44 million less than this years budget. He said the city is using money that was previously in r eserve to keep the budget balanced. C urrently, the city only has 4 percent set aside in contingency funds. This money would be used in an emergency, such as a hurricane. But 4 percent would only fund the city for two weeks, officials said. While the proposed tax increase initially passed, council members were split on the decision. C ouncilwoman Shannon Mar tin was the first to recommend the increase, and cited her concern for future years. I think our reserves need to be kept at 20 percent, she said. And the 4 percent contingency, we absolutely have to raise that and get it back up to the 8 percent level. But the extra money would go into the future use contingency funds. V ice Mayor Linda Bartz was also concerned about the future. I think its important were going to be fiscally responsible to cover that debt, she said. I want to see us build that r eserve. S he also pointed out the city has been doing well, so far, budget-wise. W e have come out of this, as tough as its been, fairly w ell, she said, as compared to many places across this country. C ouncilman Jack Kelly also indicated he would support the higher rate. C ouncilwoman Michelle Berg er disagreed. A t this point, we are in a r ecovery mode, she said. S he supported staying at the current millage rate of 5.4723 percent. Ma yo r JoAnn Faiella also indicated she would not support an increase. I will not support the rollback rate, she said. I cant put any more burden on the residents. When the vote came, Councilwoman Berger, Councilman Kelly and Vice Mayor Bar tz voted for the increase and Councilwoman Berger and Mayor Faiella voted against. B ut the vote was just the beginning of the process of r aising the tax. There will be two public hearings about the tax increase at the Sept. 12 and S ept. 26 city council meetings before a final decision is made.ResidentsF rom page A1students in the program, which began in January 2011.

A6 VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, AUGUST26, 2011 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM Raising a stinkIf theres a psychologist or psychiatrist reading this, please tell me what kind of thinking goes on in the minds of these people who take their dog to foul someone elses yard? Or do they just turn it loose in the dark of night so it wont be seen? When I see a trashcan overturned and the garbage strewn about, I think that must have been a wandering dog. M aybe these people think now that they have us convinced their child can do no wrong, its time to convince us their dog can do no wrong. W ell, Im not convinced, in either case. I feel they are despicable, inconsiderate, undesirable citizens. When I find dog feces in my yard I take my trowel and toss it into the street where people can drive over it and spread it around so others can enjoy it, too.A response about thrift storesP lease allow me to comment on a rant written July 29, entitled No manners at thrift stores. I have always given to charity.In 2007 when I found I had to sell my home quickly in order to prevent foreclosure, I dropped the sale price $100,000 and luckily it sold in four days. When I found myself having to leave the area in an effort to end the intrusive thoughts from a trauma which resulted in PTSD,I found myself returning just under a year later because Ohio certainly didnt work out. I learned facts about some nonprofit charity organizations. In S eptember 2008, while in Ohio, I found myself financially broke and unable to secure employment.When I went into a thrift store and told them that I needed some winter clothes, I was told that it was against their policy to give them away.I told them that I had given thousands of quality goods to them shortly before I left Florida and that I could prove it with receipts.They sent me to another agency. B efore I sold my home, I had many garage sales.Before I hit the road north with no idea where I was headed, I gave away whatever was left to local charities. Trucks pulled up and loaded my treasures.I have dozens of receipts from four charities and can honestly say that an estimate value of the goods say, $20,000 is conservative. When I returned just before the New Year, I found myself going to these same charities I generously gave to. To my surprise, when I asked for an ironing board, they r ummaged through the five they had on hand and chose the r usted one with mildew on the covering pad.I took it home, washed the rusted metal and threw away the covering pad. When I went back months later needing some professional working clothes in the event I got interviews, I was told which racks of clothing I could choose from. Hmm.I wasnt allowed to choose two outfits from the better racks. It is difficult for me to ask for anything and yet for the first time in my life, I had to ask for assistance. It left me feeling ashamed. I learned about Charity Navigator on-line. I learned how many sick people wrap themselves in flags of caring, concern and humanitarian efforts, only to look good.I learned about the nice cars many nonprofit owners drive around in, as well as their incomes, which Im sure would stagger many of you. M any nonprofits are not all what they are cracked up to be.I have reason to believe the rise of nonprofits over the past decade is also reason for our declining economy.The days of my generous volunteered hours and charitable heart are gone now.These are tough lessons learned and add insult to my injury.What happened to the registration law?Whatever happened to the county requirement that dogs and cats and breeders must be registered for a fee? There seems to be no verification of registration at all. P uppy mills are flourishing. Dogs and cats are being euthanized. Responsible pet owners have complied and the creeps who breed animals havent. Why wont the county follow up on these regulations?Living next to a dumpI have a neighbor who has four unregistered cars on his property that he fills with junk. For me its like living next to a dump. Why wont code enforcement do something about it? I have complained, yet nothing has happened. How can the city expect more businesses to come to the area when it looks like a dump?F ed up with propagandaIs everyone as disgusted and fed up with all the political propaganda we have been subjected to for the last several months? U nsolicited phone calls all hours of the day and night. By the way, political and charitable phone solicitations cant be blocked on a do not call list and no junk mail lists. I hang up as soon as the recording starts or let the answering machine screen my incoming calls, as well as take the junk political mail directly to the recycle bin in the garage. P olitical pundits, listen up. People dont want the calls or the mail and it has a negative effect instead of a positive influence, so save your campaign funds for something more productive. I read the newspapers, including editorial comments and letters from subscribers to form my opinions, as well as listen to the candidates themselves.Whats e-mail?R egarding computers; some of us didnt go to school long enough to hunt and peck, never mind have e-mail, whatever that is. Dont be greedyFi rst of all, I give to charities. I give what I can. I cant give a large amount, but I try to give to different ones. One thing I dont like about some organizations is they say, thank you for your $25 donation before I have a chance to offer them anything. I never give them that much money, but I think they try to trick you. I dont know why they do it. I cant give that much, but I try to give what I can. I think thats unfair of them. They might end up with nothing.T oo many flaws in Medicaid systemThis is regarding Medicaid. My wife and I just got on Me dicaid. We are taking care of our three grandchildren. I am in a program called medically needy, which means I have to have medical bills that exceed $750 a month for me to be eligible. I am not currently working because I am sick. I am unable to get a Medicaid number because my bills are not yet over $750 a month, but the bills I have cant be taken care of because they dont meet the criteria. My wife makes $1,400 a month, and our expenses are more than $1,600. I dont know where to turn.Dealing with trespassingThis is about those who want to put up signs to keep people out of their yard. We have a lot of Jehovahs Witnesses who come to our door. They think because they are a church group, that its OK to come and harass us. In our neighborhood, we call the police, because you never know who is going to try and rob your house. Maybe they should do the same.T urn sprinklers off during rainy seasonI think sprinkler systems are wonderful to have, but I dont think they should be set to automatically turn on during the rainy season, like now. Its obscene to see sprinklers going off during a downpour, in addition to wasting of water. C an you imagine seeing that occur during Fay when we had water standing everywhere? Another thing: why are businesses, private communities and city sites allowed to water whenever it suits them, while most of us follow the regulations?Equality for allThe feminists have finally reach equality with men. Now they have as many women in the police report as there are men. What a wonderful achievement! Got something to say?

Thats what government is for, Mr. Oravec said. We do things that dont have a profit. By incorporating Southern Grove into the citys community redevelopment plan, the city would be able to develop programs to strengthen economic development there. The move would not increase taxes or take away existing taxes from the city, and any tax dollars created in that area stay there. I ncluding Southern Grove in the CRA is not a magic bullet, its not going to make all the problems go away, he said. But it is a tool to make the property more valuable to encourage the owners to reinitiate the marketing efforts to sell it. The board was in unanimous agreement to take the first step and move forward with the suggestion of looking at the proposal in more detail. A public hearing will be held during a city council meeting on Aug. 29 to hear more about the proposal and its possibilities. I t shows the end user the future, Mr. Oravec said. And it shows them the potential, without mortgaging the citys future.HelpingF rom page A4conducting experiments. There will also be different scientific learning objects placed throughout the facility, such as a stairway constructed to look like a DNA double helix and stairwells will contain the elements of the periodic table. The school recently r eceived assistance from the government when a $1.13 million economic development administration grant from the U.S. D epartment of Commerce was awarded to the college for the building. This investment will allow the college to develop a thermal energy storage plant at the building. This type of chiller plant will enhance and increase the energy efficiency of the building and the 88-acre campus, he said. The plant will shift electrical demand load to offpeak hours, resulting in savings for the college. The plant will be built with open windows and viewing areas so the engineering students can see how it works.

Fr om sfgate.com : Sw edish house up for sale, complete with skeleton A Swedish real estate agent has an unusual piece of property for sale: a fivebedroom house, complete with medieval tomb and skeleton in the cellar. The central Visby townhouse on the Baltic S ea island of Gotland was built in 1750 on the foundations of a Russian church. The kitchen lies on the presbytery, and the tomb containing the skeleton visible through a glass panel is in the cellar. The real estate agencys o wner Leif Bertwig said there is no reason to be afraid as the skeleton lies in consecrated soil and r ests in peace. Ber twig said the remains likely belong to a Russian man who died some 800 y ears ago. The starting price for the house all included is 4.1 million kronor ($640,000).

BusinessArea air conditioning contractor expands statewide MARTIN COUNTY At a time when most companies are cutting expenses and conservatively managing their business, a Stuartbased contractor is reaping the benefits of doing the opposite. Ad ams Air Conditioning added three positions to its payroll this year, and is set to bring on 50 new hires within the next 90 days, said A dam Emanuel, the companys president. The failed economy has created an opportunity for us to really expand our business, said Mr. Emanuel. Thats really the bottom line. In an economy where a lot of businesses are limiting and shutting down, with less competition, we are making the most of the situation and growing. In the last five years, the company that started in 1997 serving Martin and St. L ucie counties has expanded its customer base across the Treasure Coast and Nor thern Palm Beach. W ithin the next three months, its business plan includes a strategy to hire technicians across Florida as part of a statewide expansion. It s a move that will help the company continue to deliver the high level of customer service that earned it an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau for its contractual, maintenance, installation and repair of air conditioning, heating and ventilation systems for residential and commercial clients. W ith 30 to 50 service calls per day in its current market, company representatives said Adams Air Conditioning is positioned for growth. I t s just as much a question of geography as it is a question of making ourselves available 24 hours a day, said Ronnie DeChambeau, one of the employees to benefit from the companys expansion. He was promoted to sales and marketing manager in May. A dams Air Conditioning has a staff of 14 and a 24hour customer service line. It serves hospitals and several customers in the healthcare industry, so a technician typically r esponds to each client within two hours. O ur residential customers also benefit from that extremely high level of service, Mr. Emanuel said. O ur slogan is on time, anytime, no overtime. Were the greatest and the best. A dams Air Conditionings corporate office is located at 850 N.W.Federal Highway, S tuart.Its warehouse and r epair shop is located at 1547 S.E.Village Green Drive,Port St.Lucie.For more information,call (772) 337-6559.

Special event weekend to promote businessesPORT ST. LUCIE Over the past year, Port St. Lucie has held free business workshops in a variety of languages, lowered fees for contractors and businesses and sponsored workshops for real estate agents. Now it plans to waive fees for businesses in the city that want to hold a special event on the weekend of Nov. 11 and 12, just in time for the upcoming holiday shopping season. I t is an opportunity for all the businesses in Port St. L ucie to promote their businesses that weekend for free, said Joel Dramis of the building department. Nor mally, it would cost approximately $375 for a business to hold a special event in the city for various fees, including permitting, sign and removal fees. If the business is located in St. L ucie West, there is an additional $100 fee. B ut on this weekend, businesses that register their special event with the city would have all fees waived, including those from St. Lucie West. W e talked to the folks in S t. Lucie West and they said they would waive their fees if we waived ours, Mr. Dr amis said. The special events the businesses might have on that day range from coupons to giveaways.

Church, and others have objected to any funding going to Planned Parenthood because it provides abortion services elsewhere. B ut Childrens Services C ouncil members have maintained the programs they have funded have nothing to do with abortion and accomplish the goals of the council.

J essica had two physicals within six months of each other, and it was never spotted, said her mother, Cheryl Lalloo. Jessica is the whole r eason we are doing this. She is the whole reason my family does what we do. Ms. Lalloo heads up the foundation, which has worked since Jessicas death to make sure every school has an automated external defibr illator, a device used to shock the heart. There was no defibr illator at the school when J essica died. N ow every school in St. Lu cie County has at least one, she said. There is between one and five defibrillators at every school. We place them and hope they never have to be used. But so far, theyve saved five lives. Ms. Lalloo said between 600 and 800 students are expected to attend the heart screening, the first one for the foundation. W e ve always wanted to do a heart screening to help students catch any problems, she said. The students have to have physicals before they do any sports, but their hearts are never tested. The event is for all middleand high-school students. The cost of the heart screening is $20, which will cover an electrocardiogram telehealth technology screening. Normal cost for an ECG r uns approximately $1,000. The screening is being conducted by CompuMed, in partnership with Indian River S tate College, the Heart Institute at Lawnwood Regional and St. Lucie Medical Center. I nterested students are asked to register for the screening ahead of time. While this is planned to become an annual event, Ms. Lalloo wanted the first one to be held at St. Lucie West Centennial High. W e wanted to do the first heart screening there, because thats where we lost J essica, she said. The foundation is looking for anyone who would like to volunteer to help on that day with registrations, refreshments or assisting the nurses. W e have a great support system, she said. The community and school board are always supportive and extremely helpful with whatever we do. They are also looking for sponsors for the event. W e want everyone to have the chance to have the heart screen, Ms. Lalloo said. The Know Your Heart:Student Screening 2011 will take place Sept.9 and 10 in the g ymnasium of St.Lucie West C entennial High School,1485 S.W.Cashmere Blvd.in Port St. L ucie.It is open to all middleand high-school students for $20.To register for the event or for more information,call (772) 215-1912.HeartF rom page A1

for the people that come in by way of a special or a discount, he said. Customers will get a chance to see what the business is all about. An informal poll by the citys business department indicated positive interest in the event. The department contacted 125 businesses with the event information, and all 125 stated they would be interested in participating. B usinesses that register with the city for the special event weekend will also have their information posted on the citys website. There will be a special link on the website for people to see what is available to them in the city, Mr. Dr amis said. The information will include information about the business, along with details on its special event. He said the idea for the special weekend came from a brainstorming session with staff. I t shows people that they can shop Port St. Lucie first, without leaving the city, he said. The business department is always trying to find a way to help the businesses in the city, he said. I f we have the opportunity to do it for free, we can pass along the savings to the businesses, he said. Were not in the business to make money. We look at the serving the businesses the cheapest way possible, and pass that savings along. The event will not cost the city any money, either. The businesses will go online to r egister for the event, and the business department will e-mail a permit for the event to them. I t s important for government to assume the role of helping the businesses here, Mr. Dramis said. Its the right thing to do.

This is car dealer jargon for switching a customer who originally intended to buy a car to leasing the car. Of course the motivation to do this is more profit for the dealer and a bigger commission to the salesman. Thats not to say that leasing a car is always more costly than buying one, but it can be if youre not careful. And not being careful is exactly what happens when a purchase intender becomes a lessee. He re s how it happens. Y ou come into the dealership to buy a car. You may have seen the dealers advertisement in the newspaper or TV for a particular model. More than likely, you are prepared to make a down payment and/or trade in y our old vehicle. You have a monthly payment in mind because almost everybody has a budget and we usually translate most purchases into whether or not we can fit them into our monthly budgets. You negotiate the best price you can to buy the car, or maybe the sale price is good enough. Now the salesman or more often the F&I manager/business manager tells you what y our monthly payment will be. Lets say that you have a trade-in worth $15,000 and arent going to put any cash down. The finance and insurance manager tells you your monthly payment will be $427 per month. But thats way more than you can afford and you tell him y ou cant buy the car because you cant afford that big a payment. He asks you how much youDont be flipped to a lease ON CARSEARL STEWART See S TEWART, A11 impersonators in Rome U ndercover police have donned togas, capes and sandals to stop a turf battle among Italians who impersonate gladiators outside the Coliseum and other landmarks in Rome and make money by posing for camera carrying tourists. The trade has been tolerated for years, but that was before about 20 practitioners began assaulting and intimidating their competitors to take over lucrative tourist spots. So police decided to intervene disguised as gladiators, garbage collectors and tourists, but their operation at the ancient arena and the nearby Piazza V enezia wasnt easy. P olice impersonating gladiators were attacked when they told competitors to leave the scene, but police dressed as garbage collectors and tourists came to their rescue. W eirdF rom page A6

Now he has you set up perfectly for the lease flip. Mrs. Smith, I think I have just the right thing for you. What would you say if I told y ou that you can drive that new car home today for just $349 per month? Y ou say, with glee, We have a deal! G uess what? Youve just been flipped. If you had bought the car at the advertised price or negotiated a very good price, the dealer probably would have made about $1,000 profit and the salesman would have made about a $200 commission. Now that yo u ve let yourself be flipped to lease, the dealer could be making $15,000 and the salesman could be making a $3,000 commission. Im not exaggerating. I get calls weekly from victims of lease flips. Many of the callers are elderly and many of them are widows who never bought a car before, but had relied on their husbands. Theres no law that limits the profit that a dealer can make when he sells or leases a car. Ten thousand, $15,000 and even $20,000 profits are made and usually on leases. The dealers can do this by using the trade-in as a capital cost reduction on the lease, but allowing less for the trade than it is actually worth. In the example above, y our trade-in may be worth $15,000 but you were allowed only $5,000 to r educe the capitalized costs of the lease. Also, the dealer could have raised the price of the car you negotiated or the sale price to MSRP or even 110 percent of MSRP, which is allowable by the leasing companies. By manipulating the number of months of the lease and the down payment (capitalized cost r eduction), a dealer can give y ou as low a payment as you ask for and still make an exorbitant profit. M ost buyers are so focused on monthly payments that they dont carefully analyze what they are agreeing to and signing. The shorter the number of months of a lease, the greater impact the down payment has on the monthly payment. A $5,000 down payment r educes the monthly payment on a 36-month lease by $139 per month, $208 on a 24-month lease, and $417 on 12-month lease. I ncredibly, many victims of the lease flip, never thought about the fact that after the 12, 24 or 36 month term of the lease, they own nothing. After 36 months, a car with a good resale value should be worth about half of what you paid for it. M any people who have never leased before think they can bring their leased car back early if they want. Leasing is not renting and y ou can bring your car back early only if you make all of the remaining lease payments. If you had bought the car for $30,000 and financed it for 36 months, you would have about $15,000 in equity at the end of 36 months and no monthly payments. You were building equity with every monthly payment in the purchase, but you were building zero equity with y our 36 lease payments. As I said before, dont let this frighten you from ever leasing a car. Leasing can be a good choice and sometimes the best choice. You can find six articles Ive written for Hometown News and for my blog at www.EarlStewartOnCars.co m. Lease a new car before y ou buy it, Car leasing booby traps, Be very careful when leasing a car, The lease acquisition fee: the banks gotcha, Buy or lease your car at the right time of year and Should I buy or lease my next car? StewartF rom page A10students, he said. The first part of the partnership, the parent academy, came about, in part, from a local attorney reading about such a program in other areas of the country. Par ents attend workshops on various topics to help them help their children, he said. Its a good idea, but the district has no funding to implement it, he said. As part of the partnership, H oughton Mifflin will pay for a director and also construction of an office for the program, he said. The second part involves children, beginning at age 3 through third grade, Mr. Lannon said. Oftentimes, children who live in poverty enter the school district without the same skills as their classmates from more affluent families, he said. The district wants to help create a level playing field. W e re not trying to bring anyone down, he said. W e re trying to lift everyone up. To accomplish that, the district plans to develop a curriculum that will be provided, without charge, to all pre-school providers. The only string attached is that providers must use it to help the children become better prepared, he said. The third part is to train primary school teachers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. O ur teachers are smart, he said. They didnt get the training. Many of the teachers are not skilled in the hard sciences. To accomplish this, he said, the district will buy materials at a 50 percent discount from Houghton M ifflin. H oughton Mifflin will provide trainers for the teachers, he said. U ltimately, Mr. Lannon said, he envisions a situation where students will be able to do virtual scientific experiments on computers that will enable them to learn skills at an earlier age. In the fourth area, the school district will work to make educational materials and textbooks available online, he said. Dur ing the next five years, the district will work to find or develop an affordable device that would be available to all students to allow them to access that information, he said. I envision a time when backpacks will be a thing of the past, he said. W ith changes in the job market, it is critical to get students more prepared, he said. Mr. Burgtorf said the Duv al County School District has a pilot program where some students are equipped with boxes that connect to a television. Through that box, parents and students receive information via the television, he said.P artnershipF rom page A3

LUCIE R esidents visiting Abingdon at Tradition to attend a health fair on Aug. 31 will quickly realize why its been dubbed, Not Your Typical H ealth Fair. This free event will feature a variety of nonprofit groups handing out information to the community, as well as a var iety of activities. There will be approximately 22 exhibitors, said Chris Collins, director of community relations for the facility. U nfortunately, due to an ov erwhelming interest and support, we had to turn many potential exhibitors away this year. The nonprofit groups coming out to the event include the Alzheimers Association, which will distribute free safe return bracelets; the Council on Aging of St. Lucie County; C ouncil on Aging of Martin C ounty; American Red Cross; Treasure Coast R esource Center for the B lind and Visually Impaired; The Big Red Bus bloodmobile; Martin Memorial H ealth Systems, St. Lucie M edical Center, Lawnwood M edical Center and Alzheimers Community Ca re. It took the organizers approximately three months to plan the event. This began with our wellness coordinator, Sadie Br ookman, as a resource for our members who live with us, as many have moved from other areas and do not know the St. Lucie community well, Ms. Collins said. It grew from there, and became open to the public. In addition to the nonprofit groups, there will be hand paraffin treatments and interactive classes featuring cooking, water aerobics, jazzercise, chair Pilates and chair massages. CVS pharmacy will be on hand to provide free flu shots to seniors with Medicare B. They will also vaccinate those under 65 with limited insurance. Also, HCA hospital systems will have a cardiologist and dietician at the event to speak on health-related topics. There are great contacts that are happy to help and be a resource to the community at large, so it was easy to find exhibitors, Ms. Collins said. They organizers are already planning for this expo becoming an annual event. W e are looking forward to an even bigger event next y ear, she said. The health fair will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. A ug. 31 at Abingdon at Tradition, 10685 S.W. Stony Creek W ay in Port St. Lucie, 2 miles w est on Tradition Parkway at I-95 exit 118.

In Po rt S t. Lucie, she obtained her certification and began teaching at W indmill Point Elementary School for the past eight years while working for a dance studio in the city at the same time. I decided it was time to open my own studio that was family oriented, she said. S he designed a dance studio with programs that allowed students to participate competitively or just for fun. She also keeps a strong focus on academics. The children here only practice two, maybe three, times a week, she said. This gives them time to keep up with their schoolwork and still have time with their families. Another of her focuses is including special needs children in the classes. E very single student performs in the recital, she said. I know they all can do it, because I believe in all of them. And when I believe in them, they believe in themselves. W ith the expansion, she is taking some time off from teaching to focus on the studio. This year, I will be offering daytime dance classes for home-schooled students, she said. Our whole concept is to get the family involved. The event will feature a r ibbon cutting at 1 p.m., games, face painting and dance performances put on by the students.

Hello smart shoppers, hope you had a good w eek. Last week, I gave you the recipe for my spaghetti sauce. This weeks column offers great additions for the sauce that make it perfect for a special dinner. A casatta cake, an Italian specialty, tops off the menu. Ricotta, the soft creamy cheese used in pasta dishes is also used in fillings and frostings for cakes. Love cannoli? The filling is made with ricotta. Enjoy, see you next week!IT IT ALIAN M ALIAN M EA EA TB TB ALLS ALLS Ser Ser ves 4 or more ves 4 or more regular or low fat regular or low fatWhen you use fresh ground beef, meat balls can be lowfat. My meatball r ecipe was handed down to my mother. A combination of ground beef, pork and veal can be used but we prefer them only with beef. I can remember as a teenager being told, There are seven ingredients in the r ecipe plus the meat. You must count on your fingers: salt, pepper, egg, garlic, cheese, parsley and bread. If you use regular ground chuck or beef, which contains a fair amount of fat, the seven ingredients still holds true. When using fresh, virtually fat-free ground beef, an eighth ingredient must be added to keep the meatballs from going flat; that is bread crumbs. NOTE: Using fresh ground beef? Add 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil per pound. 1 pound fresh ground fat-free beef 2 large eggs or equivalent egg substitute or 3 egg whites 4 slices white bread or equivalent of Italian bread 2 medium cloves garlic, chopped 1 tablespoon plain bread crumbs 1 teaspoon salt 1/2-teaspoon black pepper 5 or 6 sprigs fresh Italian parsley, chopped, or 1 tablespoon dried 1 handful grated Romano cheese N ote: Double or triple the r ecipe to freeze the extra for future meals. S oak bread in water, squeeze dry. If using Italian bread (preferred), remove as much crust as possible. P lace all ingredients in a bowl and mix with your hands. Shape into balls a little larger than a golf ball. Y ears ago you would fry the meatballs, but now, to cut down on fat, we bake them. Place on a cookie sheet that has been treated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. M eatballs should be cooked in the spaghetti sauce an additional 30 minutes. Over-cooking will make them fall apart.IT IT ALIAN S ALIAN S AU AU S S A A G G E E FO FO R S R S P P A A G G H H E E T T TI TI S S AU AU C C E ETo r educe the fat, cut sausage into 3or 4-inch pieces. Prick all over with a fork and bake on racks in a cookie sheet at 350 for about 30 minutes. Add to spaghetti sauce and cook for 30 minutes longer. HINT: If you use both sweet and hot sausages, place a toothpick in the hot sausage to avoid unwelcome surprises.PO PO R R K S K S P P AR AR E R E R I I B B S S FO FO R S R S P P A A G G H H E E T T TI TI S S AU AU C C E E Ser Ser ves 4-5 ves 4-5C ut ribs apart between each bone and trim as much fat as possible.

Add sugar, chocolate, nuts and candied fruit (save best pieces of fruit to decorate top of cake). NOTE: Candied fruit is hard to find during the year, buy extra around the holidays or ask for it at your local bakery. C ut cake into thin layers (3 or 4), moisten top of layers with liqueur, spread a little jam over top of layer and top with some ricotta mixture. Continue stacking layers, leaving top of cake plain. Chill until set, (at least 2 hours). Cover top with leftover ricotta mixture or dust with confectioner's sugar. Decorate with r eserved fruit.

This Labor Day weekend, please think about the men and women serving to protect and defend our freedom. Ev eryday, the men and women of our armed forces put their lives on the line so we can safely enjoy our swimming pools, cookouts, baseball games and time with our loved ones. When they come home, many return bearing the scars of combat and service. Others come home in a simple, flagdraped coffin. P atriot Golf Day is about all of these fine men and women. If you tee it up over the holiday, please do so at a participating course. Proceeds from your rounds will go to the families of those who have been injured or killed defending our great nation. To fully appreciate Patriot Golf Days mission, its important to know how it came to be. Br ad and Brock Bucklin, twins born in Grand Rapids, M ich., were two of five sons of Duane and Dawn Bucklin of Caledonia, Mich. Br ock followed his brother into the military, enlisting a y ear after him in August 2004. Br ock told his father he planned to enter Officer Tr aining School and make the U.S. Army his career. After he got in the service, he found his way, said D uane Buck Bucklin, 71. Br ock wasassigned to the 1st Battalion, 68th Armor R egiment, 3rd Heavy Brigade C ombat Team and 4th I nfantry Division of Fort C arson, Colo. In December 2005, he received his call to service in Iraq. At age 28 on May 31, 2006, Cpl. Brock Bucklin was the acting mayor of Forward O perating Base GABE on the outskirts of Baqubah, 40 miles northeast of Baghdad. The mayor of FOB GABE was the go-to guy when soldiers had problems or needs with their facilities. It was Brocks duty to coordinate and manage the independent contractors and support resources to address those needs. On this particular day, he was assigned to assist a contractor in identifying equipment and property for transport as FOB GABE was closing down. The civilian contractors we re responsible for moving concrete barriers. While they we re moving them onto trailers for transport, one of the trucks became stuck. They decided to pull the truck with another. A cargo chain was attached between the two trucks. As the workers stood off to the side, the chain snapped. A broken link found Brock, slicing an artery in his neck. A Special Forces medic arrived to provide treatment. E ighteen minutes later, a MEDEVAC helicopter transported him to LSA Anaconda Air Force Hospital. A half-hour later, Brock died. I t is a tragedy when a son or daughter dies before you. It is unnatural. Its the thing thats unacceptable and most troubling, said his father. Br ad, stationed in Germany, pressed his military command to be allowed to accompany his brothers coffin home to Grand Rapids. Then-Capt. Dan Rooney, a PGA Professional from Br oken Arrow, Okla., and member of the Oklahoma Air N ational Guard, was on the flight as it carried home the body of Cpl. Bucklin. The plane landed at 11:35 p .m., and Rooney watched through the planes window as the Bucklins awaited Brad and the coffin of their late son. Brocks son, Jacob, was clinging to the leg of his mother. The pilot requested that passengers remain in their seats until the remains of the fallen hero could be transferred to his family. Rooney looked up and saw that half of the passengers had left the plane. At that moment, R ooney said, he was inspired to give back to fallen heroes families. A little over a year after the funeral, Rooney called Buck to let him know his son and the families of those who had perished or become disabled in the line of duty would not be forgotten. I am an ordinary person that has been blessed with the extraordinary opportunity to be the flight leader on the Patriot Golf Day mission, said Rooney. I simply planted a small seed, which has been cultivated by PGA professionals and great citizens around the United States. J acob is now 8 and the r ecipient of a scholarship generated from the Folds of H onor Foundation and its largest fundraiser, Patriot Golf Day. I t was good to know that something good comes from this, said Buck. There are a lot of other sons, a lot of other daughters who did not come home. Im a patriot and I have served in the military. We only have our freedom because of our military. N ever could I imagine what it was that Dan R ooney wanted to do, Buck said. But I know that my son would be extremely proud.
