LUCIE A request by a local business led to the creation and adoption of Port St. L ucie's first city flag. At the Nov. 21 city council meeting, city manager Jerry Bentrott told the council that Club Med contacted the city requesting to fly the city flag at its facility. "I had no objection and appreciated the chance to promote the ST. LUCIE COUNTY At a workshop held by St. Lucie County Commissioners, it was agreed the contract currently being created between the county and the H umane Society will contain specific language addressing the care and handling of animals that reside there. In addition to a revised contract, the county commission also directed staff to write an ordinance, dubbed the "animal bill of rights," that will detail specific standards of care of animals being housed by all shelters in the county. "C oncerns were brought up, and we will address them as a team," said J ack Southard, director of public safety for St. Lucie County. S taff will also work on putting together a committee of animal control workers from all municipalities in the county, local veterinarians, humane society personnel and volunteers from other shelters to address specific concerns as they arise. This issue can be emotional," FORT PIERCE In the darkness of a windy night last week, a few women shed light on the abuse they suffered years earlier and how they overcame it. M any of the women said it was the first time they had spoken publicly about a subject that's been taboo to discuss over the years. One Port St. Lucie woman was among those who spoke publicly for the first time during the "Take B ack the Night," rally outside the A.E. Backus Museum and Gallery in downtown Fort Pierce. She said that as a child, she was abused by her father and an older boy in the neigh-City preserve officially opensPORT ST. LUCIE The crisp, clear weather was the perfect backdrop, as Po rt S t. Lucie city officials and members of the Conservation Alliance of St. L ucie County celebrated the opening of the Mariposa Cane Slough Preserve. "T oday we stand on a property that can be measured not by size, but by its decades of life," said Gregory Oravec, assistant city manager. "The city council had the leadership to set aside money from developers to be able to do this." The 20-acre piece of city property was adopted by PSL man charged in death PORT ST. LUCIE A Po rt S t. Lucie man was arrested last week in connection with the fatal shooting of his cousin. Ev ans Honord, 18, was charged on Dec. 1 with manslaughter in connection with the death of S hadrac Honord, 21. The investigation showed the brothers were attending a farewell party for a friend at 1816 S.W. C ameo Blvd., according to a press release. Du r ing the party, a fully loaded Taurus, a .40-caliber handgun, belonging to a friend was on the couch, police said. While the suspect was Man accused of battering co-worker PORT ST. LUCIE A 65y ear-old Port St. Lucie man was arrested last week after being accused of inappropriately touching a 17-yearold female employee. T wo days later, police arrested Edward Leviness, 65, 466 S.E. Verada Ave., Po rt S t. Lucie, again, after r eceiving accusations that he attempted to tamper with the witness/victim, according to reports. Mr. Leviness, who was initially charged with battery, faces an additional charge of tampering with a witness, police said. The initial arrest occurred on Nov. 29 after the 17-yearold victim reported she had just started working at American Insurance and In vestments when her boss acted inappropriately, the r eport said. "S he advised that Edward asked her questions like if she enjoyed sleeping with other women and if she was w earing any underwear," the report said.

Some criminal cases are unusual, humorous or just outright odd. And there's no shortage of them on the Treasure Coast. This column highlights cases that often leave observers shaking their heads. Extensive damage A Martin County man, in addition to facing a criminal charge of driving under the influence, may not be too popular in one Stuart neighborhood, and that's putting it mildly. The man's SUV went off the road and over a culvert causing about $250 worth of damage. Then the vehicle traveled through the lawn of that r esidence, into another and hit a large oak tree, uprooting it. Pa r ts of the tree landed on the roof of the house at that property, causing about $1,000 of damage to the roof and siding. Then the SUV overturned and hit a car at that property causing about $15,000 worth of damage. And as it turns out, the man had no driver license. N or did he own the SUV. The man was arrested and charged with driving under the influence. A bad day It wasn't a good day last w eek for a Port St. Lucie woman. S he was not only knocked off her scooter by a car, but she was also arrested. The Port St. Lucie woman, who suffered minor injuries, told police a vehicle backed up into her scooter, causing her to fall off of it. The driver of the vehicle who hit her saw her throw a cigarette box into the grass and went over to check on what she threw. He found a wooden container. An officer discovered a wooden container in the cigarette box contained a BE ST OF THE BLOTTERJA Y MEISEL See B LOTTER, A11County to draft animal Bill of Rights' By Dawn Krebsdkrebs@hometownnewsol.com See FLAG, A4By Dawn Krebsdkrebs@hometownnewsol.com See PR E SERVE, A2 By Jay Meiseljmeisel@hometownnewsol.comBy Dawn Krebsdkrebs@hometownnewsol.comDocument would create specific standards of careSee ABUSE, A11By Jay Meiseljmeisel@hometownnewsol.com See AC CUSED, A4 See ANIMAL, A9Staff ReportDon't miss the IRSC holiday show which runs through Dec. 10 ENTERTAINMENTB1 HOLIDAY FUN IN DEXClassifiedB8 Crossword B7 Obituaries B5 Out & AboutB1 P olice Report A5 Rants & Raves A6 Star Scopes B1 V iewpoint A6 WEEKEND WEATHERF riday: Scattered showers; high: 79; low: 64; high tide: 7:22 a.m.; low tide: 1:18 p.m. Saturday: Cloudy; high: 74; low: 65; high tide: 8:03 a.m.; low tide: 1:56 p.m. Sunday: Showers; high: 75; low: 64; high tide: 8:43 a.m.; low tide: 2:34 p.m. W eather courtesy of www.weather.com FLORIDA FINANCEA6 2 012 LEGI SLATURE Florida's Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater prioritizes the 2012 sessionSee CHARGED, A2

the conservation in a firstof-its-kind, adopt-a-preserve program. The property is located east of Lennard Road on the south side of Mariposa R oad. It had been purchased by the city using conservation trust funds. The preserve always bestows a gift every time someone visits," said Shari Anker, a member of the alliance. "We can now hear the stories the preserve is trying to tell us." The half-loop takes about 45 minutes to complete, and the path offers more than two dozen spots where walkers can see plants and animals in their natural habitat. A full-loop trail is planned to be complete by fall 2012. At a May 23 city council meeting, Ms. Anker went before the city council to r equest permission for the alliance to adopt the property and name it Mariposa C ane Slough Preserve. The council approved both r equests unanimously. By adopting the property, the alliance will inventory the plants and animals that live there, develop educational programs, conduct guided tours and remove litter and exotic plant species. This is the first preserve the city has allowed to be adopted. So far we have identified more than 70 native plants at that location," she said. The preserve officially opened to the public on De c. 3, and guided tours we re offered with conservation volunteers and displays from nature artists. A nyone interested in scheduling a tour of the land can contact Ms.Anker at sranker@mac.com. F riday, December 9, 2011 A2 Port St. LucieHometown News 686365 760042 LEONARDS.

LUCIE COUNTY T wo St. Lucie County OB/GYN physicians were honored by the Office of the N ational Coordinator of H ealth Information Technology and the South Florida Regional Extension Center for being "Meaningful U se Vanguards" in adopting and using certified electronic medical records in their group medical practice. J uliette Lomax-Homier and Leigh Hoppe, who operate Just Ladies Healthcare of the Treasure Coast in Fort Pierce, were presented certificates and plaques by F lorida Rep. Gayle Harrell, RD istrict 81, a member of the OCN policy committee and current chairwoman of the health and human services access subcommittee. Re p. H arrell has 25 years of experience in health care and served on the national health Information technology policycCommittee, making recommendations on the expenditure of more than $44 billion to promote the use of electronic health r ecords. The ceremony took place at the Fort Pierce regional campus of Florida State University College of Medicine. Dr s. Lomax-Homier and H oppe have also received financial incentive funding from the Centers for M edicare and Medicaid Services for their achievement. In addition to her private practice, Dr. Lomax-Homier coordinates training medical students at the FSU College of Medicine's Fort Pierce campus and is on staff at Lawnwood Regional M edical Center. These doctors are leading the way for health care providers throughout the Tr easure Coast," said Rep. H arrell. "The electronic health record is the way of the future and will ultimately have a positive impact on all of us." Ce r tified electronic health r ecords will improve the efficiency, quality, access and value of care and is a key component to the overall transition in the delivery of health care in the U.S. P hysicians must show they are using their system meaningfully, including transmitting pharmacy prescriptions and lab results and sharing information with other health-care providers. The electronic health record will also more fully engage patients in the care process. "W e are delighted to recognize these early adopting physicians from the Treasure Coast area," said Lisa R awlins, executive director of the South Florida Regional Extension Center, who also honored the doctors and their office staff for early adoption efforts. The SFREC is a federallyfunded, nonprofit organization providing assistance and guidance to physicians as they acquire, implement and meaningfully use their electronic health record system. They are currently working with more than 2,000 providers from Key W est to Vero Beach. F or Hometown News newsfp@hometownnewsol.com

The victim further said that Mr. Leviness "stood up in front of her and started r ubbing both his hands on her outer thighs and was working his way up to her underwear when she felt his breath on her face." Then, she ran out the door and ran home, the woman told police. Mr. Leviness told police that he rubbed the 17-yearold's legs, "but not in a sexual manner," the report said. "H e then advised all he did was give her a hug (and) then drove her home," the r eport said. When asked if hugging new employees was common, Mr. Leviness told police that "it just happened," the report said. Although he denied knowing the employee is 17, he said he had taken a picture of her driver license, the report said. T wo days after police arrested Mr. Leviness, the 17-year-old, while working at an apparently new job as a sign holder, reported that Mr. Leviness stopped his vehicle nearby and handed her a note. The note asked for them to have a one-on-one meeting and said, "I can lose my business that I worked at for the last 20 years," according to a report. "W e must set down and talk anywhere you choose, but only us," the note stated. As a result of that, police arrested Mr. Leviness on the tampering with a victim charge. city," said assistant city manager Gregory Oravec in a memo. "Unfortunately, no one around here can r ecollect a city flag being in existence." After some research by city staff, it was determined the city did not have a flag created to represent it. So five designs were created by staff and presented to the city council. The designs ranged from a simple white flag with the city's logo and motto, "A city for all ages," to a variety of vertical white and green stripes and backgrounds. After a moment's perusal, the council unanimously decided on the simple design of the white flag with the logo and motto. "I t has a clean look to it," said Vice Mayor Linda Bar tz. At this time, the final details of when Club Med is expected to receive the flag have not yet been worked out. L evinessAccusedF rom page A1FlagF rom page A1

Y ou have two other streets to use that would completely r esolve the issue. Just flip the plan over and use the street on the north side. I really do not believe anyone ever looks at a city plan for anything anymore. Why doesn't the press put out a drawing of the proposeddesign for the public? It seems the city doesn' t want to share too much information anymore.Missing a tax paymentIf y ou miss paying an installment on your income tax, the IRS knows instantly and will be after you. If y ou enter this country illegally, the border patrol doesn't have a clue. S ome estimates are that there are 12 million illegals here but no one really knows. The truth is that the Obama administration does not care. The truth is that the Obama administration hopes that Americans will lose interest in this problem and that eventually the illegals will be permitted to vote (for Democrats, of course).No place for envyThe top 1 percent is a mathematical palace which many people visit, but where few reside very long. F our fifths of 40-year old Americans do better than their parents did when they were 40. That is one of the things which make the U.S. great.It is called opportunity but there are no guarantees. O pportunity is based on hard work, sometimes mixed in with a little good luck.If we get rid of all the 1 percenters today, a new top 1 percent would take their place. It is a mathematical certainty. There is no place in this country for class envy.Lights, trash need attentionI wonder who is responsible for the sprinklers around the Fo rt Pierce Yacht Club?

No w, having learned nothing, they are using something called the Home Affordable Refinance Program to do more of the same.They are determined to save millions of home o wners regardless of how much their homes have fallen in v alue.Such foolishness is rewarded only in Washington.Give Cain the benefit of the doubtWhy is it when somebody is arrested, they are presumed innocent untilfacts prove guilt in a court of law, versus the case of Herman Cain being presumed guilty until heproves his innocence? Why is he being treated unfairly? I think it is another example from the bunch of crooks we have in Washington trying to keep an honest man out of office. Don't allow this injustice toruin a good man's efforts to bring honesty and integrity back to the White House.In response to Counties should help'When did local counties state they, "refuse to create work, affordable housing and eliminate homelessness?" Whether they did or did not say this doesn't matter though. In your opinion, how is a county (or city) of any kind going to "c r eate work" as you put it? B efore work is created, there must be some sort of project (job) at hand. Depending on how big this project is, it will obviously require people to run the project. These people will then, and only then, be considered workers of the project, therefore, work has been created. However, these people will have to go through the normal hiring process to be accepted for the work just like any other job. If and only if they meet the qualifications for the job and pass the screening, will they be considered for the job. As a lot of people already know from looking for jobs everywhere, a lot of jobs require at least a year or more of experience before even getting considered for the job. Ev en if you just got out of college with your A/C (or mechanic, electrical, etc.) certs, you just spent a lot of money and time on, no experience equals no job. If they cannot find people for the job, the job will get contracted out to the lowest bid of a company who has the experienced workers for the job. This applies to the counties and cities, as well. Instead of going through the whole hiring and training process, they place a bid on the job and give the job to the company with the lowest bid. As for the "hard for both counties to create work" part, see the above answer for that. As far as the "affordable housing" part, correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe not too long ago the county (and city) we re purchasing foreclosed houses, fixing them up and r eselling them to low-income families with a very low interest mortgage. With that said, they have, in a sense, created affordable housing. Did this eliminate homelessness? I'm sure it has to an extent. Y ou are correct, there are people out of work or about to lose their jobs but saying they are going to be put on the street and become homeless is a bit drastic, although it is possible and may happen eventually. I have a friend who has been out of work (laid off, like a lot have during that time) for over three years who had tried to make ends meet by cutting lawns until he finally got hired as a sub-contractor (with no benefits) for an airplane manufacturing plant in Stuart, which had been bought out by a larger company a few years ago. He was doing great until this larger company decided to "r estructure" (read: operate less expensively) a section of the warehouse of which my friend has been working in for ov er a year and my family member who has been working in for more than 35 years and have another company (read: sub-contractor) take over that section. No w, they both have to reapply for the same position they already had and, if all goes well, get rehired! Might not sound so bad to you, but my family member's pay will now be cut down to more than half! How is he expected to still pay his mortgage, utilities and other bills? Does anyone who has been working so hard for over 35 years, who isn't even a boss making the "big bucks," deserve that treatment? Of course not but that's what these big corporations do. They take over the small companies, merge, lay off the workers who have been there for over 20 years (well-experienced) with great benefits and a pension (but can't retire because they are still too young), and bring in new faces who get paid less, get barely any benefits and need to be trained. M aybe, instead of companies merging and buying out other companies all over the place, they should expand separately, keeping the current workers and hiring new workers to keep the companies afloat. But that will be just too much work! Sounds kind of ironic, don't ya think? Who are these same people you refer to? The people who are out of work or about to lose their jobs or the county? You then say "they look the other way to not solve the problem?" Is this the people or county? If you mean the people or county or both, how do you think they can solve this problem you speak of? M aybe before posting these rant questions (problems), y ou should think if they have possible answers (solutions). B ut what does a 30-year-old man like me know who, with a college degree, is trying to make ends meet by having his o wn computer business and charging less than the big (geek) boys because, even though he has more than 15 years of computer experience, and more than eight years of customer service experience from working in retail, can't get a "r eal job" with a steady salary and pension because he, unfortunately, doesn't have the paper proof (read: computer certificates and degree) of his experience.. Is there really many careers out there with a steady and livable salary and a pension these days? Sounds too good to be true now! How ever, if there still is, would I want to risk the current success of my current business by trying to get hired by another company doing the same I already do with the possibility of getting laid off six months down the line and end up with nothing? I don't think so! Is the above really the reason we have a bad reputation nationwide? Because we blame everyone else for our own ignorance? I nstead of people blaming people, why don't we just all blame none, come together to work on solving the problems and have fun? Got something to say?

Seuss characters on paradeMakayla McSweeney of St. Lucie County parades through downtown Fort Pierce as Dr. Seuss' Susie Who, with the Seacoast National Bank team of other Dr. Seuss characters during the annual Sight & Sounds parade in Fort Pierce Sunday, Dec. 4.Mitch Kloorfain chief photographer Since I took office almost a year ago, a few core missions and values drive my decisions as your chief financial officer. You deserve a government that protects your hard-earned dollars and that is why my key initiatives continue to focus on transparency and accountability, finance and economy, fraud and consumer protection. W ith the next legislative session beginning in J anuary, my 2012 legislative agenda will focus on four core themes that support these initiatives: transparency in contracts and government spending, protecting consumers, fighting fraud and r educing regulatory burdens on Florida's businesses. H onoring my commitment to government transparency, several of my proposed reforms are aimed at strengthening accountability in state contracting. This effort includes expanded powers to monitor state agency procurements for compliance, as well as authority to review and approve or r eject state contracts prior to execution. To ensure that tax dollars are being spent wisely, my aim is to increase competition in the state bidding process. R ecent news reports have highlighted increasing trends in identity theft in Florida.As a consumer protection measure, I will work to close a loophole that allows certain groups to obtain Social Security information from the D epartment of Financial Se r vices' Bureau of Un claimed Property. In an effort to curb the increase of PIP fraud and give Floridians the relief they deserve on their auto insurance rates, my appointed insurance consumer advocate convened a working group to gather and develop ideas to address fraud and other potential alternatives to Florida's current no-fault system which will be presented to the legislature. To address a new worker's compensation fraud scheme that is putting pressure on rates and crippling the business community, I called for a work group to make r ecommendations for combating workers' compensation premium fraud. As I host business r oundtables across the state, a top concern has been the burdensome r egulations that stifle business growth. I am asking the legislature to r epeal or rework laws that do not add value to F lorida's consumers or businesses, starting with some I have identified in my own agency. Fu r ther, Florida must streamline its information technology services, and I am pursuing a modern IT structure to accomplish this goal. In this challenging economic climate, we have a deep responsibility to create conditions that will bring down costs for F lorida's families and businesses. I'm confident the legislature is equally committed to fostering economic success and r educing financial burdens on Florida's businesses and families, and I look forward to working with them toward these important goals.

A fundraiser is planned to benefit the Sheriff's Explorer Post 400 as part of the businesses' grand opening on Dec. 11.Staff photo by Dawn KrebsPORT ST. LUCIE Education about gun ownership is just as important as o wning the gun itself. That's the belief behind co-owners Natalie and Eric Knipfer and John and S tephanie Colucci, who r ecently became the newest owners of 2nd Amendment Firearms in Po rt S t. Lucie. "O verall, we have a lot of combined experience," said Ms. Knipfer. "We do a lot of education." In addition to all of the guns and gun supplies they sell, the business also offers concealed weapon permit classes, either in a group or privately. B ut education isn't just doled out in classes. "W e teach customers how to clean the weapon, and what the basic maintenance is," said Mr. Colucci. "W e break it down right in front of them. The customer is going to leave feeling fully comfortable with their decision." The business also sells and trades firearms as well, which is good for area collectors. They also offer transfers, where when someone buys a firearm from the Internet or another gun shop, they can pick up the firearm and fill out all the necessary paperwork there. "W e work closely with the sheriff's office with everything we do," Ms. Knipfer said. As part of the business' grand reopening, a raffle fundraiser is planned from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, De c. 11, with the proceeds benefiting the St. Lucie C ounty Sheriff's Office E xplorer Post 400. The post is made up of kids ages 14 through 21 interested in law enforcement or the military," said D eputy Sal Anicito, a senior advisor for the explorer program. "We do community events throughout the y ear." R epresentatives from the sheriff's office will be at the fundraiser, providing fingerprinting for children, as w ell as welcoming a visit from McGruff the Crime Dog. Also taking place that day is a variety of raffles, including one from 2007 H arley Davidson Screaming Eagle 103 Phatback made by Treasure Coast H arley Davidson. "I did a lot of charity work before I opened the store," Ms. Knipfer said. "W e chose the explorer program because it made sense with our business." There will also be raffles for tasers, knives and survival gear. Free concealed w eapons classes will be given away every hour.

Earl Stewart is the owner and general manager of Earl Stewart Toyota in No r th Palm Beach.The dealership is located at 1215 N.Federal Highway in Lake Pa rk Contact him at www.earlstewarttoyota.co m, call (561) 358-1474,fax (561) 658-0746 or e-mail earls@earlstewarttoyota.co m. L isten to him on Seaview AM 960 and 95.9,which can be streamed at www.seaviewam960.com every Saturday morning between 9 a.m.and 10 a.m.Alocal attorney emailed me yesterday morning, asking me to send him the various articles I'd written on the infamous dealer fee. He is trying a case in Akron, O hio, and wanted to r esearch this issue. I've written so many articles ov er the years that I sent him seven and also my blog address, www.EarlStewartOnCars.com so that he could read all of them if he chose. Later that afternoon, I r eceived a call from a y oung couple in Fort Lauderdale who had just discovered they had paid $1,248 in dealer fees after they bought a new Toyota and drove it home. They wanted to know what they could do about it. They asked if they had any legal r ecourse. They had not r esponded to an advertisement on a specific car, which is the case with most buyers, so they had no legal r ecourse. They had recently moved to Florida from C alifornia (where they do have a good dealer fee law) and were amazed how F lorida had such a weak law and that even that was not regulated. These two occurrences made me realize that I can't be quiet on this subject just because things have gotten better in my local market. The number of dealers in my market charging the dealer fee has abated by four: Royal Palm Toyota in the Wellington area, Palm B each Toyota in West Palm B each, Treasure Coast To y ota in Stuart and Delray To y ota all eliminated their dealer fees. I call this the domino effect." Why only Toyota dealers? That's because of the economic impact that my dealership, which does not charge a dealer fee, has had on each of them. I've grown from the second smallest To y ota dealership in Palm B each, Martin and St. Lucie counties to No. 1, by far. My dealership is in Lake Park, which has a population of only 9,000. In fact I advertise being in North Palm B each (on the border with Lake Park) because most people don't know where Lake Park is. The only way I was able to grow Earl S tewart Toyota to No. 1 was to sell into the other Toyota dealers' markets. The 21st century consumer is far more intelligent and discriminating than most dealers give them credit for. If y ou arm the consumer with information, they usually make the right buying decision. I've done a good job of arming the Toyota buyers in my market with that information, but I can't quit now. The word must be spread throughout Florida and the other states in the U.S. that still have ineffective consumer laws and r egulation. This blog is read on the Internet all over the world. National news stories have been written and talked about my battle against the dealer fee. It's been reported on CNN, Fo x, ABC, the Wall Street J ournal, New York Times, USA Today and many other national media. The reason the dealer fee is such a bad thing lies in one undisputable and fundamental right of the consumer. That is the right to be told the true and full price of any product or service before committing to purchase it.

Exp 12-16-11All Grooming ServicesGROOMING SPECIAL 686440 L ymphoma is a cancer of the lymph system, which is part of the immune system.It is the most common type of cancer in humans and pets. L ymphoma can affect almost any part of the body.Dogs typically are presented with enlarged lymph nodes or glands.The ones that are usually the first to enlarge are the sub mandibular lymph nodes which are just below the jawline.Dogs that are brought in f or "enlarged glands" are usually totally normal, eating, and active, but have generalized lymph node enlargement.Cats rarely present with enlarged lymph nodes.Their disease is usually manifested with gastro intestinal signs, kidney signs, or respiratory signs.Cats usually present thin, with chronic diarrhea, lethargic, and a lack of appetite.Palpable lymph nodes are more likely to be internal, with the lymph nodes that drain the intestines being enlarged.Diarrhea, and weight loss that is not responsive to treatment should alert the clinician and pet owner that lymphoma is a possibility. Diagnosis is made with fine needle aspirates, or biopsies. Sometimes special stains have to be used to confirm the diagnosis.Lymphoma usually is very responsive to chemotherapeutic drugs.Lymphoma has been studied e xtensively in humans and effective chemotherapy protocols are readily available.Remission can usually be achieved in 93% of dogs using a combination drug protocol.Length of remission va r ies, but the usual first remission length is 12-13 months. Smaller dogs tend to stay in remission longer than their larger counterparts.Once dogs come out of remission, they have a reduced chance of going into a second remission, and the length of remission is usually half of the first remission. The usual protocol is weekly chemo treatments for 4 treatments, then every other week for 20 weeks with a week off between cycles.Weekly CBC's (complete blood counts) have to be done before chemotherapy treatments.If the white count total is less than 2500, the treatment is postponed.These drugs tend to suppress the bone marrow/immune system and make the patient susceptible to infection.Treatment is usually tolerated very well and the quality of life is excellent.I can attest to this.My dog Candi has had lymphoma for 17 months and is undergoing her second cycle of treatment and she just came out of her second remission. My cat Charlie has nasal lymphoma and just started his first round of treatment last week.The tumor has shrunk almost completely and is barely detectable. Radiation therapy has shown promise in lymphoma patients especially those affecting the head and sinuses and is now av ailable in several institutions in the state.

He addressed the crowd who was seated along the walls of the conference r oom, where the workshop was held. M embers of the crowd included a group of local animal rights advocates who have been working to formalize complaints of alleged abuse of animals at the humane society. At an informal meeting of the St. Lucie County Commission on Nov. 15, two veterinarians who used to work for the St. Lucie County H umane Society, along with former humane society board members asked for the county's help in what they consider to be poor conditions for the animals housed there. The workshop, however, did not address any specific allegations, but instead focused on how much oversight is warranted on a government level. "W e need to make sure a standard of care is there," said Commissioner Chris Cr aft. "What's important is to put in a safety valve.'" He suggested the contract should include wording to allow the county to have unannounced inspections, C ommissioner Tod Mowery agreed. "I f we are setting up a contract, we should be looking at how an agency is run," he said. "Some structure should be in place." C ommissioner Paula Lewis liked the idea of forming a committee in order to work through issues together. "W e are not giving them a grant," she said of the contract with the humane society. "We are paying for a service. I think what we can do in our function of government is to put standards of care in place and make sure the animals that are entrusted to their care are handled appropriately and ethically." D avid Robertson, director of operations for the humane society, agreed to everything the commissioners proposed. "W e would completely support any standard of care initiatives in the new contract," he said. The first step the commission will take is to show written support for Senate B ill 818, which states that every opportunity is taken to adopt an animal held at a shelter. It also details that r ecords have to be kept of the process and include any foster programs. A ccording to Mr. S outhard, the new contract with the humane society should be ready for the commission to view at a J anuary meeting. In the meantime, an animal-control ordinance will be revised to include an animal bill of rights, and should be ready for the commission by F ebruary. "H opefully, before the ordinance is in place we can have a committee established," Mr. Southard said. "W e will require a certain standard of care for the animals." www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 9, 2011 Po rt St. Lucie A9 Custom Made Verticals ArchesMini Blinds W oven WoodsW ood Blinds ShuttersCellular & Pleated ShadesSheer-Wrapped Verticals 221-06272201 S.E.

One of the most ignored health problems in the countryDry Eye Syndrome also known as K eratoconjunctivitis Sicca is a progressive eye disease in which dryness is caused by decreased tear production, increased tear evaporation, or more commonly a combination of both. This condition affects 1 in 3 people over the age of 40 and has been on the upswing in younger generations as well. It is easily one of the most common eye problems patients suffer from, yet do nothing about. What are the symptoms of dry eyes? Common symptoms include transiently blurry vision, excess tearing (watering), dryness, burning, sandy feeling, and tired sensation all of which can worsens as the day goes on or with increased reading or computer use. Other symptoms include itching, stingy, redness, or pressure sensation in the eyes. Why do these things occur? A normal tear film requires a balance of not only aqueous tears, but an oil film, and mucin layer as well. Lets look at the common mechanisms for dryness, first, is aqueous tear deficiency (ATD). The lacrimal gland is unable to produce sufficient aqueous tears to keep the whole eye moisturized. The leading reasons for this include rheumatologic disease, decreased corneal nerve sensation, multiple drugs (oral contraceptives, antidepressants, antihypertensives, antihistamines, beta-blockers, etc). The second type of dryness is a lack of tears do to evaporation. This is caused when you have a decreased production of oil on the eye. Without the oil the aqueous layer evaporates off the eye in seconds. Age is one of the main reasons for the eye to decrease production of the oil layer of the eye. Lastly decreased mucin production can cause serious dry eye disease by not allowing tears to form on the eye properly. F ortunately this is fairly uncommon and is usually caused by poor nutrition. How can my eye care professional check me for these problems? The most important thing is to not ignore these symptoms. Visit your eye doctor for a comprehensive evaluation and complain about your dryness! Dont suffer in silence with this problem. Your eye care professional will review your medical history for risk factors. Performing a bio-microscope slit lamp examination of your tear glands and tear film will give your doctor a better idea of your specific case. Additional testing including Schirmers test, tear break up time dye testing, and tear assay analysis can help your doctor understand how your dryness is occurring. How can I treat my eyes now that I know whats going on? There are many treatments for dry eye syndrome! There are many over the counter lubricating tear drops you could use. I caution my patients that not all tear drops are the same. Many have harsh preservatives harmful for the eyes. Others are exceptionally viscous and blur the vision. Holistic hot compress and lid hygiene treatments are extremely helpful as well. If these basic treatments are not sufficient medical treatment with cyclosporine agents, non-steroidal or steroidal anti inflammatory medicines may be needed. Minor surgical procedures used to decrease tear drainage can be utilized as well. If you are suffering with any of these problems I strongly recommend you visit your eye care professional for a comprehensive dry eye evaluation. You dont have to continue to ignore this health concern! Christopher Frey O.D. Dr Christopher Frey O.D.Board Certified Optometrist 686448

Pastes, pads and worry about embarrassing slips and slides are a way of life. Dr. James Strawn has been practicing general dentistry on the Treasure Coast for over twenty years. Many of his patients wear dentures with varying degrees of success. Even a perfect fit may not provide the ability and comfort most people wish for,Ž he said recently, and lets face it, were using a treatment method that hasnt changed much over the last hundred years. That is until now!Ž About two years ago, Dr. Strawn began offering a new way to stabilize dentures with mini implants. This has opened a whole new world of ability and comfort, and is life-changing in most cases,Ž he stated. One patient exclaimed that to him it is the biggest human advance since the discovery of water, he is so happy to have teeth that feel solid when he talks and enjoys a meal. I dont feel so much like an old man anymore.Ž And it is surprisingly simple and affordable, according to Dr. Strawn. If a persons current denture is in good working condition, we can usually match it up to the new mini implants. That is a big savings right there,Ž he said. The mini implants themselves are much less expensive than conventional implants. Minis are about one third as wide, so there is usually no need for extensive bone removal or gum surgery or months of healing. In most cases, the implants are immediately solid enough to connect to the denture and the patient walks out the first day with a stabilized denture. Each patient is shown how to snap the denture in over the implants and unsnap it too. Also, because the mini implants are so small, they can be used in situations where there would not be enough bone for conventional implants. Every person is differentŽ said Dr. Strawn, but we have found very few people who could not benefit from this treatment.Ž A question we are often asked is, how long will they last, and how much maintenance is involved?Ž said Dr. Strawn, He continued, My goal for each case is ten years or more. Mini implants have an excellent long term track record and have been classified by the FDA as such. Success can be affected by a persons overall health and the condition of the bone to be implanted, but we are very pleased with the results we are getting, and the patients are delightedŽ. According to Dr. Strawn, a regular check-up and cleaning schedule is important for maintaining the function and health of the implants. While decay is no longer an issue, tartar and plaque can accumulate to cause gum inflammation and create a problem. The flexible o-rings that provide the denture grip on the implants also need to be changed about once a year. Check ups also allow for the denture itself to be checked and adjusted as needed. When its time for a new denture, can the same implants be used to hold it in? Yes, answers Dr. Strawn, as long as they are solid in place and the tissues are in good shape. We design the new denture to snap into them and continue the benefits of comfort and the solid feel. Another frequently asked question is how much discomfort and down time do patients experience after implant placement. I often compare this to having a tooth extractedŽ said Dr. Strawn. The amount of discomfort can vary for each person, but we tailor every approach to control it so that the post operative period is as smooth and easy as possible. Dr. Strawn offers a free consultation for all who wish to consider mini implants. Dr James Strawn H ealth 686450W ellness S amsung refrigerator from Lowe's. I researched it in "C onsumer Reports" and it was the No. 1 ranked sideby -side refrigerator. "C onsumer Reports" also indicated what I could expect to pay for this model. I expected to and did, in fact, but for slightly less than "Consumer R eport" suggested and Lowe's advertised. Of course, I did have to add sales tax, but even the delivery and installation we re both included in the advertised price. If I had bought a car in Florida, the chances are about 99 percent there would be a surprise charge" anywhere between $500 and $2,500 (or maybe higher). O ur Florida law on this subject restricts the dealer to not advertising a price that does not include the dealer fee. F irst of all, the law is not enforced at all. On any given day, I can show you many examples of car dealers who simply ignore this law. Some totally ignore it, some simply note in the fine print that the price quote in the large print is plus a dealer fee and do state the amount. S ome don't even state the amount. Many display a small innocuous number by the price, such as STK#123B. This means there is only one car advertised at this price. STK# stands for stock number. Your chances of buying this one car when y ou arrive are slim and none. What you can buy is another stock number car, which may be exactly the same, but, because it wasn't the specific advertised car, the dealer can legally add any amount to the price that he calls his dealer fee. F lorida law calls for no cap to the amount of a dealer fee it's left up to the dealers' gall and imagination. Of course the name dealer fee is just the most common one. There are dozens of different names because Florida law also does not specify one. This would make it too easy for the consumer. Dealer prep, doc fee, notary fee, pre-delivery fee and administrative fee are just a few. Sometimes the dealers will have two or three "dealer fees." A popular one now is to mark up the electronic filing fee. This costs the dealer $12 and they can mark that up as much they want to. The law says this should be disclosed because it is considered a dealer fee, but many just ignore that. The legal disclosure on the buyer's order should be: "This charge represents costs and profits to the dealer for items such as inspecting, cleaning and adjusting vehicles and preparing documents related to the sale." What happens most of the time to customers is they don't have a chance to learn about the dealer fee until they get into the F&I office also known as the finance office or business office. This is when the dealer tries to make another profit by selling you products such as warranties and marking up the bank's interest rate. Let me be clear, a fair profit is a good thing and y ou should consider buying warranties or letting the dealer sell you a warranty if he is competitive in his pricing. But what else happens in the F&I office is that you are confronted by a large number of documents with lots of fine print that y ou must sign. On one of these, if you're lucky, you will finally learn of the marked up electronic filing fee, doc fee, dealer prep fee or whatever else the dealer decides to call it and how much he decides to charge you. As often as not, you will believe these fees are legitimate federal, state or local taxes or fees. Y ou may not even notice them at all until you get home when it's too late. Or y ou may believe that you have to pay these fees and everybody charges them so what's the harm? He lp me spread the word. Just say no to the dealer fee! Always get a competitive out-the-door price and shop and compare. If the dealer insists on adding a dealer fee, just be sure it's included in the out-thedoor price and compare it with at least two other dealers' prices. Wr ite your legislator and tell him how you feel about the dealer fee. Call y our local newspaper and TV station and tell them the same thing. We need laws like they have in C alifornia that keep the dealer fee under control. It 's limited to $65 and every dealer calls it by the same name and charges the same thing. The C alifornia car buyer knows what he's paying for the car before he commits. StewartF rom page A8borhood. Du r ing a Christmas party, her father came to her and said, "I know you're doing it with everyone else," she r ecalled. F ollowing that, her father abused her, she said. Y ears later, she told her mother about the abuse and discovered she had known about it all along. H er mother told her she stopped her father from doing it "some of the time," she said. Over time, she said, she came to realize that "these things were not my fault." In starting a family, she said, "I had to break the cycle (of abuse). I had to do it for my children." As a mother, she vowed she would never let that happen to her daughters, she said. The event was organized by M indy Fetterman, a St. L ucie County resident, who also suffered child abuse. Pa rt of the message of the event was that perpetrators, not the victims, should be the ones suffering shame, she said. It would have been much more difficult to speak publicly about being a victim without having heard Ms. F etterman speak about the abuse from multiple perpetrators, including a boyfriend of her mother, the Po rt S t. Lucie woman said. What I learned from M indy was I wasn't alone," she said. The Rev. Nell Wilkins, a Po rt S t. Lucie pastor, who said she also suffered abuse, added that many women suffer in the darkness because they feel shame after being abused. The only thing I know to get rid of the darkness is light," the Rev. Wilkins said. S he said that years ago, she was at a church service attended by a number of older women, some of whom had suffered abuse. F or the first time, she said, she told church members about her story of abuse. That led some of the other women in attendance to talk about what happened to them, she said. "W e were set free that night," the Rev. Wilkins said. As the Rev. Wilkins and others stood outside the museum, she said, "We stand here for our grandmothers who did not have the courage to tell their stor ies." Another woman who told her story at the event said she was abused by the son of her godparents. F or years, she said, she felt worthless and suffered from eating disorders. Now she realizes none of it was her fault. Another woman who survived years of domestic abuse said she broke her silence in hope that others facing the same situation will escape. S he looked into her husband's eyes and knew he could kill her, she said. "I learned to behave for 26 years." O thers should not wait 26 y ears to exit an abusive relationship, she said. The event included a walk through downtown with some participants carrying signs promoting an end to abuse and a self-defense demonstration from St. L ucie County deputies who teach rape aggression defense program classes. Ms. Fetterman said she plans to organize such an event again. "I think it made a lot of people feel empowered," she added.AbuseF rom page A1 metal-cigarette type device with marijuana packed on one end of it. The woman told an officer that she was taking the marijuana with her on a fishing trip. I nstead of going fishing, she ended up getting treated at an emergency room and then heading toward the St. Lu cie County jail where she was charged with possession of 20 grams or less of marijuana, tampering with evidence and possession of drug paraphernalia. M aybe the old adage is true that there are days when it is better to stay in bed. M aybe they should appear on Judge Judy A pparently, a neighborhood in Port St. Lucie is not the type of neighborhood that was portrayed in Mr. R ogers's show that aired on the Public Broadcasting S ystem. A report indicated a woman and a man living next to each other have had problems for 14 years. Those problems apparently boiled to the surface last w eek when the man started taking pictures of his neighbor's unleashed dogs. After seeing this, the woman became enraged and began knocking down a r ock wall separating their properties. S he also told St. Lucie C ounty deputies that she pulled her pants down "in order to give him (the neighbor) something to take a picture of." S he was arrested and charged with lascivious behavior, disturbing the peace and criminal mischief. The report didn't say whether the neighbor took photos of her as she was led away in handcuffs.BlotterF rom page A1

I ncluded in the performance will be the songs "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year," "J ingle Bell Rock," "Fr osty the Snowman," "Hav e Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and the H allelujah chorus from H andel's "Messiah."

An annual show, "Star of Wonder" will have viewers tracing what may have been the path of the star the wise men followed, and will show where the constellations and planets were at that time. What was it in the sky that compelled the Magi to embark on a journey hundreds of miles across deserts and mountains?" asked Jon Bell, planetarium director. Also, there will be a live, one-night special concert "Upon a Midnight Clear," that will feature electronic music of the season by composer and artist John Serrie. Mr. Serrie will perform on keyboards as Mr. Bell projects special effects of stars. The holiday show will take place on Dec. 9 at 8 p .m. and Dec. 10 at 2 p .m. and 8 p.m. Tickets are $12.

Today we will make my family's traditional Christmas Eve appetizer, an antipasto. Antipasto is not a salad, but sectioned trays filled with delectable foods. No lettuce is used. Genoa salami, provolone cheese, roasted red peppers, pickled mushrooms, pickled eggplant, marinated artichoke hearts, caponata (eggplant appetizer), sardines, anchovies, capers, black and green olives create a magnificent display. You can add tomato wedges, tuna, hard-boiled egg or any other appetizer food that will fit. Each appetizer is prepared separately. The salami must be sliced paper-thin and rolled pencil-thin. The provolone is not the slicing kind found in supermarkets, but a strong cheese found in gourmet cheese sections, delis or meat markets. The domestic is a little milder than the imported; cut in w edges. Each is placed in its own section for individual selection. Cr usty Italian or French bread completes the feast. No w I'd like to share with y ou a very old and special family tradition that my grandfather, Luciano C amerino, born in Bari, I taly, brought to America. A crche (nativity with a stable, Mary and Joseph, a cradle for the Christ child, kings, stable hands, animals, etc.) is set up, but the infant child is placed elsewhere, since he hasn't been born yet. On Christmas Eve at midnight, with appropriate music in the background, the lights are extinguished. Ev eryone carries a lit household candle, except the youngest child, who carries the baby Jesus on a silver tray. The oldest family member navigates the child in a procession throughout the home, blessing each room. The procession goes in birth order, and guests are always included. The Christ child is then placed into His cradle. All kneel and pray, the candles are extinguished and all embrace and wish each other a blessed Merry Christmas. Enjoy. See you next week. NOTE: All can be made days in advance, refrigerated and served at room temperature.R R O O A A STE STE D D R R E E D P D P E E P P P P E E R R S SSw eet red bell peppers come jarred, but roasting y our own is easy and the flavor is wonderful.

LUCIE A request by a local business led to the creation and adoption of Port St. L ucies first city flag. At the Nov. 21 city council meeting, city manager Jerry Bentrott told the council that Club Med contacted the city requesting to fly the city flag at its facility. I had no objection and appreciated the chance to promote the ST. LUCIE COUNTY At a workshop held by St. Lucie County Commissioners, it was agreed the contract currently being created between the county and the H umane Society will contain specific language addressing the care and handling of animals that reside there. In addition to a revised contract, the county commission also directed staff to write an ordinance, dubbed the animal bill of rights, that will detail specific standards of care of animals being housed by all shelters in the county. C oncerns were brought up, and we will address them as a team, said J ack Southard, director of public safety for St. Lucie County. S taff will also work on putting together a committee of animal control workers from all municipalities in the county, local veterinarians, humane society personnel and volunteers from other shelters to address specific concerns as they arise. This issue can be emotional, FORT PIERCE In the darkness of a windy night last week, a few women shed light on the abuse they suffered years earlier and how they overcame it. M any of the women said it was the first time they had spoken publicly about a subject thats been taboo to discuss over the years. One Port St. Lucie woman was among those who spoke publicly for the first time during the Take B ack the Night, rally outside the A.E. Backus Museum and Gallery in downtown Fort Pierce. She said that as a child, she was abused by her father and an older boy in the neigh-City preserve officially opensPORT ST. LUCIE The crisp, clear weather was the perfect backdrop, as Po rt S t.

T oday we stand on a property that can be measured not by size, but by its decades of life, said Gregory Oravec, assistant city manager. The city council had the leadership to set aside money from developers to be able to do this. The 20-acre piece of city property was adopted by PSL man charged in death PORT ST. LUCIE A Po rt S t. Lucie man was arrested last week in connection with the fatal shooting of his cousin. Ev ans Honord, 18, was charged on Dec. 1 with manslaughter in connection with the death of S hadrac Honord, 21. The investigation showed the brothers were attending a farewell party for a friend at 1816 S.W. C ameo Blvd., according to a press release. Dur ing the party, a fully loaded Taurus, a .40-caliber handgun, belonging to a friend was on the couch, police said. While the suspect was Man accused of battering co-worker PORT ST. LUCIE A 65y ear-old Port St. Lucie man was arrested last week after being accused of inappropriately touching a 17-yearold female employee. T wo days later, police arrested Edward Leviness, 65, 466 S.E. Verada Ave., Po rt S t. Lucie, again, after r eceiving accusations that he attempted to tamper with the witness/victim, according to reports. Mr. Leviness, who was initially charged with battery, faces an additional charge of tampering with a witness, police said. The initial arrest occurred on Nov. 29 after the 17-yearold victim reported she had just started working at American Insurance and In vestments when her boss acted inappropriately, the r eport said. S he advised that Edward asked her questions like if she enjoyed sleeping with other women and if she was w earing any underwear, the report said.

Some criminal cases are unusual, humorous or just outright odd. And theres no shortage of them on the Treasure Coast. This column highlights cases that often leave observers shaking their heads. Extensive damage A Martin County man, in addition to facing a criminal charge of driving under the influence, may not be too popular in one Stuart neighborhood, and thats putting it mildly. The mans SUV went off the road and over a culvert causing about $250 worth of damage. Then the vehicle traveled through the lawn of that r esidence, into another and hit a large oak tree, uprooting it. Par ts of the tree landed on the roof of the house at that property, causing about $1,000 of damage to the roof and siding. Then the SUV overturned and hit a car at that property causing about $15,000 worth of damage. And as it turns out, the man had no driver license. N or did he own the SUV. The man was arrested and charged with driving under the influence. A bad day It wasnt a good day last w eek for a Port St. Lucie woman. S he was not only knocked off her scooter by a car, but she was also arrested. The Port St. Lucie woman, who suffered minor injuries, told police a vehicle backed up into her scooter, causing her to fall off of it. The driver of the vehicle who hit her saw her throw a cigarette box into the grass and went over to check on what she threw. He found a wooden container.

the conservation in a firstof-its-kind, adopt-a-preserve program. The property is located east of Lennard Road on the south side of Mariposa R oad. It had been purchased by the city using conservation trust funds. The preserve always bestows a gift every time someone visits, said Shari Anker, a member of the alliance. We can now hear the stories the preserve is trying to tell us. The half-loop takes about 45 minutes to complete, and the path offers more than two dozen spots where walkers can see plants and animals in their natural habitat. A full-loop trail is planned to be complete by fall 2012. At a May 23 city council meeting, Ms. Anker went before the city council to r equest permission for the alliance to adopt the property and name it Mariposa C ane Slough Preserve. The council approved both r equests unanimously. By adopting the property, the alliance will inventory the plants and animals that live there, develop educational programs, conduct guided tours and remove litter and exotic plant species. This is the first preserve the city has allowed to be adopted. So far we have identified more than 70 native plants at that location, she said. The preserve officially opened to the public on De c. 3, and guided tours we re offered with conservation volunteers and displays from nature artists.

LUCIE COUNTY T wo St. Lucie County OB/GYN physicians were honored by the Office of the N ational Coordinator of H ealth Information Technology and the South Florida Regional Extension Center for being Meaningful U se Vanguards in adopting and using certified electronic medical records in their group medical practice. J uliette Lomax-Homier and Leigh Hoppe, who operate Just Ladies Healthcare of the Treasure Coast in Fort Pierce, were presented certificates and plaques by F lorida Rep. Gayle Harrell, R-D istrict 81, a member of the OCN policy committee and current chairwoman of the health and human services access subcommittee. Re p. H arrell has 25 years of experience in health care and served on the national health Information technology policycCommittee, making recommendations on the expenditure of more than $44 billion to promote the use of electronic health r ecords. The ceremony took place at the Fort Pierce regional campus of Florida State University College of Medicine. Dr s. Lomax-Homier and H oppe have also received financial incentive funding from the Centers for M edicare and Medicaid Services for their achievement. In addition to her private practice, Dr. Lomax-Homier coordinates training medical students at the FSU College of Medicines Fort Pierce campus and is on staff at Lawnwood Regional M edical Center. These doctors are leading the way for health care providers throughout the Tr easure Coast, said Rep. H arrell. The electronic health record is the way of the future and will ultimately have a positive impact on all of us. Cer tified electronic health r ecords will improve the efficiency, quality, access and value of care and is a key component to the overall transition in the delivery of health care in the U.S. P hysicians must show they are using their system meaningfully, including transmitting pharmacy prescriptions and lab results and sharing information with other health-care providers. The electronic health record will also more fully engage patients in the care process. W e are delighted to recognize these early adopting physicians from the Treasure Coast area, said Lisa R awlins, executive director of the South Florida Regional Extension Center, who also honored the doctors and their office staff for early adoption efforts. The SFREC is a federallyfunded, nonprofit organization providing assistance and guidance to physicians as they acquire, implement and meaningfully use their electronic health record system. They are currently working with more than 2,000 providers from Key W est to Vero Beach. F or Hometown News newsfp@hometownnewsol.com

The victim further said that Mr. Leviness stood up in front of her and started r ubbing both his hands on her outer thighs and was working his way up to her underwear when she felt his breath on her face. Then, she ran out the door and ran home, the woman told police. Mr. Leviness told police that he rubbed the 17-yearolds legs, but not in a sexual manner, the report said. H e then advised all he did was give her a hug (and) then drove her home, the r eport said. When asked if hugging new employees was common, Mr. Leviness told police that it just happened, the report said. Although he denied knowing the employee is 17, he said he had taken a picture of her driver license, the report said. T wo days after police arrested Mr. Leviness, the 17-year-old, while working at an apparently new job as a sign holder, reported that Mr. Leviness stopped his vehicle nearby and handed her a note. The note asked for them to have a one-on-one meeting and said, I can lose my business that I worked at for the last 20 years, according to a report. W e must set down and talk anywhere you choose, but only us, the note stated. As a result of that, police arrested Mr. Leviness on the tampering with a victim charge. city, said assistant city manager Gregory Oravec in a memo. Unfortunately, no one around here can r ecollect a city flag being in existence. After some research by city staff, it was determined the city did not have a flag created to represent it. So five designs were created by staff and presented to the city council. The designs ranged from a simple white flag with the citys logo and motto, A city for all ages, to a variety of vertical white and green stripes and backgrounds. After a moments perusal, the council unanimously decided on the simple design of the white flag with the logo and motto. I t has a clean look to it, said Vice Mayor Linda Bar tz. At this time, the final details of when Club Med is expected to receive the flag have not yet been worked out. L evinessAccusedF rom page A1FlagF rom page A1

Y ou have two other streets to use that would completely r esolve the issue. Just flip the plan over and use the street on the north side. I really do not believe anyone ever looks at a city plan for anything anymore. Why doesnt the press put out a drawing of the proposeddesign for the public? It seems the city doesn t want to share too much information anymore.Missing a tax paymentIf you miss paying an installment on your income tax, the IRS knows instantly and will be after you. If you enter this country illegally, the border patrol doesnt have a clue. S ome estimates are that there are 12 million illegals here but no one really knows.

F our fifths of 40-year old Americans do better than their parents did when they were 40. That is one of the things which make the U.S. great.It is called opportunity but there are no guarantees.

Why is he being treated unfairly? I think it is another example from the bunch of crooks we have in Washington trying to keep an honest man out of office. Dont allow this injustice toruin a good mans efforts to bring honesty and integrity back to the White House.In response to Counties should helpWhen did local counties state they, refuse to create work, affordable housing and eliminate homelessness? Whether they did or did not say this doesnt matter though. In your opinion, how is a county (or city) of any kind going to cr eate work as you put it? B efore work is created, there must be some sort of project (job) at hand. Depending on how big this project is, it will obviously require people to run the project. These people will then, and only then, be considered workers of the project, therefore, work has been created. However, these people will have to go through the normal hiring process to be accepted for the work just like any other job. If and only if they meet the qualifications for the job and pass the screening, will they be considered for the job. As a lot of people already know from looking for jobs everywhere, a lot of jobs require at least a year or more of experience before even getting considered for the job. Ev en if you just got out of college with your A/C (or mechanic, electrical, etc.) certs, you just spent a lot of money and time on, no experience equals no job. If they cannot find people for the job, the job will get contracted out to the lowest bid of a company who has the experienced workers for the job. This applies to the counties and cities, as well. Instead of going through the whole hiring and training process, they place a bid on the job and give the job to the company with the lowest bid. As for the hard for both counties to create work part, see the above answer for that. As far as the affordable housing part, correct me if Im wrong, but I believe not too long ago the county (and city) we re purchasing foreclosed houses, fixing them up and r eselling them to low-income families with a very low interest mortgage. With that said, they have, in a sense, created affordable housing. Did this eliminate homelessness? Im sure it has to an extent. Y ou are correct, there are people out of work or about to lose their jobs but saying they are going to be put on the street and become homeless is a bit drastic, although it is possible and may happen eventually. I have a friend who has been out of work (laid off, like a lot have during that time) for over three years who had tried to make ends meet by cutting lawns until he finally got hired as a sub-contractor (with no benefits) for an airplane manufacturing plant in Stuart, which had been bought out by a larger company a few years ago. He was doing great until this larger company decided to r estructure (read: operate less expensively) a section of the warehouse of which my friend has been working in for ov er a year and my family member who has been working in for more than 35 years and have another company (read: sub-contractor) take over that section. Now, they both have to reapply for the same position they already had and, if all goes well, get rehired! Might not sound so bad to you, but my family members pay will now be cut down to more than half! How is he expected to still pay his mortgage, utilities and other bills? Does anyone who has been working so hard for over 35 years, who isnt even a boss making the big bucks, deserve that treatment? Of course not but thats what these big corporations do. They take over the small companies, merge, lay off the workers who have been there for over 20 years (well-experienced) with great benefits and a pension (but cant retire because they are still too young), and bring in new faces who get paid less, get barely any benefits and need to be trained. M aybe, instead of companies merging and buying out other companies all over the place, they should expand separately, keeping the current workers and hiring new workers to keep the companies afloat. But that will be just too much work! Sounds kind of ironic, dont ya think? Who are these same people you refer to? The people who are out of work or about to lose their jobs or the county? You then say they look the other way to not solve the problem? Is this the people or county? If you mean the people or county or both, how do you think they can solve this problem you speak of? M aybe before posting these rant questions (problems), y ou should think if they have possible answers (solutions). B ut what does a 30-year-old man like me know who, with a college degree, is trying to make ends meet by having his o wn computer business and charging less than the big (geek) boys because, even though he has more than 15 years of computer experience, and more than eight years of customer service experience from working in retail, cant get a r eal job with a steady salary and pension because he, unfortunately, doesnt have the paper proof (read: computer certificates and degree) of his experience.. Is there really many careers out there with a steady and livable salary and a pension these days? Sounds too good to be true now! How ever, if there still is, would I want to risk the current success of my current business by trying to get hired by another company doing the same I already do with the possibility of getting laid off six months down the line and end up with nothing? I dont think so! Is the above really the reason we have a bad reputation nationwide? Because we blame everyone else for our own ignorance? I nstead of people blaming people, why dont we just all blame none, come together to work on solving the problems and have fun? Got something to say?

Seuss characters on paradeMakayla McSweeney of St. Lucie County parades through downtown Fort Pierce as Dr. Seuss Susie Who, with the Seacoast National Bank team of other Dr. Seuss characters during the annual Sight & Sounds parade in Fort Pierce Sunday, Dec. 4.Mitch Kloorfain chief photographer Since I took office almost a year ago, a few core missions and values drive my decisions as your chief financial officer. You deserve a government that protects your hard-earned dollars and that is why my key initiatives continue to focus on transparency and accountability, finance and economy, fraud and consumer protection. W ith the next legislative session beginning in J anuary, my 2012 legislative agenda will focus on four core themes that support these initiatives: transparency in contracts and government spending, protecting consumers, fighting fraud and r educing regulatory burdens on Floridas businesses. H onoring my commitment to government transparency, several of my proposed reforms are aimed at strengthening accountability in state contracting. This effort includes expanded powers to monitor state agency procurements for compliance, as well as authority to review and approve or r eject state contracts prior to execution. To ensure that tax dollars are being spent wisely, my aim is to increase competition in the state bidding process. R ecent news reports have highlighted increasing trends in identity theft in Florida.As a consumer protection measure, I will work to close a loophole that allows certain groups to obtain Social Security information from the D epartment of Financial Ser vices Bureau of Un claimed Property. In an effort to curb the increase of PIP fraud and give Floridians the relief they deserve on their auto insurance rates, my appointed insurance consumer advocate convened a working group to gather and develop ideas to address fraud and other potential alternatives to Floridas current no-fault system which will be presented to the legislature. To address a new workers compensation fraud scheme that is putting pressure on rates and crippling the business community, I called for a work group to make r ecommendations for combating workers compensation premium fraud. As I host business r oundtables across the state, a top concern has been the burdensome r egulations that stifle business growth. I am asking the legislature to r epeal or rework laws that do not add value to F loridas consumers or businesses, starting with some I have identified in my own agency. Fur ther, Florida must streamline its information technology services, and I am pursuing a modern IT structure to accomplish this goal. In this challenging economic climate, we have a deep responsibility to create conditions that will bring down costs for F loridas families and businesses. Im confident the legislature is equally committed to fostering economic success and r educing financial burdens on Floridas businesses and families, and I look forward to working with them toward these important goals.

A fundraiser is planned to benefit the Sheriffs Explorer Post 400 as part of the businesses grand opening on Dec. 11.Staff photo by Dawn KrebsPORT ST. LUCIE Education about gun ownership is just as important as o wning the gun itself. Thats the belief behind co-owners Natalie and Eric Knipfer and John and S tephanie Colucci, who r ecently became the newest owners of 2nd Amendment Firearms in Po rt S t. Lucie. O verall, we have a lot of combined experience, said Ms. Knipfer. We do a lot of education. In addition to all of the guns and gun supplies they sell, the business also offers concealed weapon permit classes, either in a group or privately. B ut education isnt just doled out in classes. W e teach customers how to clean the weapon, and what the basic maintenance is, said Mr. Colucci. W e break it down right in front of them. The customer is going to leave feeling fully comfortable with their decision. The business also sells and trades firearms as well, which is good for area collectors. They also offer transfers, where when someone buys a firearm from the Internet or another gun shop, they can pick up the firearm and fill out all the necessary paperwork there. W e work closely with the sheriffs office with everything we do, Ms. Knipfer said. As part of the business grand reopening, a raffle fundraiser is planned from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, De c. 11, with the proceeds benefiting the St. Lucie C ounty Sheriffs Office E xplorer Post 400. The post is made up of kids ages 14 through 21 interested in law enforcement or the military, said D eputy Sal Anicito, a senior advisor for the explorer program. We do community events throughout the y ear. R epresentatives from the sheriffs office will be at the fundraiser, providing fingerprinting for children, as w ell as welcoming a visit from McGruff the Crime Dog. Also taking place that day is a variety of raffles, including one from 2007 H arley Davidson Screaming Eagle 103 Phatback made by Treasure Coast H arley Davidson. I did a lot of charity work before I opened the store, Ms. Knipfer said. W e chose the explorer program because it made sense with our business. There will also be raffles for tasers, knives and survival gear. Free concealed w eapons classes will be given away every hour.

Earl Stewart is the owner and general manager of Earl Stewart Toyota in Nor th Palm Beach.The dealership is located at 1215 N.Federal Highway in Lake Pa rk. Contact him at www.earlstewarttoyota.co m, call (561) 358-1474,fax (561) 658-0746 or e-mail earls@earlstewarttoyota.co m. L isten to him on Seaview AM 960 and 95.9,which can be streamed at www.seaviewam960.com every Saturday morning between 9 a.m.and 10 a.m.Alocal attorney emailed me yesterday morning, asking me to send him the various articles Id written on the infamous dealer fee. He is trying a case in Akron, O hio, and wanted to r esearch this issue. Ive written so many articles ov er the years that I sent him seven and also my blog address, www.EarlStewartOnCars.com so that he could read all of them if he chose. Later that afternoon, I r eceived a call from a y oung couple in Fort Lauderdale who had just discovered they had paid $1,248 in dealer fees after they bought a new Toyota and drove it home. They wanted to know what they could do about it. They asked if they had any legal r ecourse. They had not r esponded to an advertisement on a specific car, which is the case with most buyers, so they had no legal r ecourse. They had recently moved to Florida from C alifornia (where they do have a good dealer fee law) and were amazed how F lorida had such a weak law and that even that was not regulated. These two occurrences made me realize that I cant be quiet on this subject just because things have gotten better in my local market. The number of dealers in my market charging the dealer fee has abated by four: Royal Palm Toyota in the Wellington area, Palm B each Toyota in West Palm B each, Treasure Coast Toy ota in Stuart and Delray Toy ota all eliminated their dealer fees. I call this the domino effect. Why only Toyota dealers? Thats because of the economic impact that my dealership, which does not charge a dealer fee, has had on each of them. Ive grown from the second smallest Toy ota dealership in Palm B each, Martin and St. Lucie counties to No. 1, by far. My dealership is in Lake Park, which has a population of only 9,000. In fact I advertise being in North Palm B each (on the border with Lake Park) because most people dont know where Lake Park is. The only way I was able to grow Earl S tewart Toyota to No. 1 was to sell into the other Toyota dealers markets. The 21st century consumer is far more intelligent and discriminating than most dealers give them credit for. If you arm the consumer with information, they usually make the right buying decision. Ive done a good job of arming the Toyota buyers in my market with that information, but I cant quit now. The word must be spread throughout Florida and the other states in the U.S. that still have ineffective consumer laws and r egulation. This blog is read on the Internet all over the world. National news stories have been written and talked about my battle against the dealer fee. Its been reported on CNN, Fo x, ABC, the Wall Street J ournal, New York Times, USA Today and many other national media. The reason the dealer fee is such a bad thing lies in one undisputable and fundamental right of the consumer. That is the right to be told the true and full price of any product or service before committing to purchase it.

said Commissioner Chairman Chris Dzadovsky. We have to deal with the contract, and any concerns should go to law enforcement. He addressed the crowd who was seated along the walls of the conference r oom, where the workshop was held. M embers of the crowd included a group of local animal rights advocates who have been working to formalize complaints of alleged abuse of animals at the humane society. At an informal meeting of the St. Lucie County Commission on Nov. 15, two veterinarians who used to work for the St. Lucie County H umane Society, along with former humane society board members asked for the countys help in what they consider to be poor conditions for the animals housed there. The workshop, however, did not address any specific allegations, but instead focused on how much oversight is warranted on a government level. W e need to make sure a standard of care is there, said Commissioner Chris Cr aft. Whats important is to put in a safety valve. He suggested the contract should include wording to allow the county to have unannounced inspections, C ommissioner Tod Mowery agreed. I f we are setting up a contract, we should be looking at how an agency is run, he said. Some structure should be in place. C ommissioner Paula Lewis liked the idea of forming a committee in order to work through issues together. W e are not giving them a grant, she said of the contract with the humane society. We are paying for a service. I think what we can do in our function of government is to put standards of care in place and make sure the animals that are entrusted to their care are handled appropriately and ethically. D avid Robertson, director of operations for the humane society, agreed to everything the commissioners proposed. W e would completely support any standard of care initiatives in the new contract, he said. The first step the commission will take is to show written support for Senate B ill 818, which states that every opportunity is taken to adopt an animal held at a shelter. It also details that r ecords have to be kept of the process and include any foster programs. A ccording to Mr. S outhard, the new contract with the humane society should be ready for the commission to view at a J anuary meeting. In the meantime, an animal-control ordinance will be revised to include an animal bill of rights, and should be ready for the commission by F ebruary. H opefully, before the ordinance is in place we can have a committee established, Mr. Southard said. W e will require a certain standard of care for the animals. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 9, 2011 Po rt St. Lucie A9 Custom Made Verticals ArchesMini Blinds W oven WoodsW ood Blinds ShuttersCellular & Pleated ShadesSheer-Wrapped Verticals 221-06272201 S.E.

Pierce: 2402 Frist Blvd, Ste. 201 PSL: 1700 S.E. Hillmoor Dr., Ste. 404 Dry Eye Syndrome. One of the most ignored health problems in the countryDry Eye Syndrome also known as K eratoconjunctivitis Sicca is a progressive eye disease in which dryness is caused by decreased tear production, increased tear evaporation, or more commonly a combination of both. This condition affects 1 in 3 people over the age of 40 and has been on the upswing in younger generations as well. It is easily one of the most common eye problems patients suffer from, yet do nothing about. What are the symptoms of dry eyes? Common symptoms include transiently blurry vision, excess tearing (watering), dryness, burning, sandy feeling, and tired sensation all of which can worsens as the day goes on or with increased reading or computer use. Other symptoms include itching, stingy, redness, or pressure sensation in the eyes. Why do these things occur? A normal tear film requires a balance of not only aqueous tears, but an oil film, and mucin layer as well. Lets look at the common mechanisms for dryness, first, is aqueous tear deficiency (ATD). The lacrimal gland is unable to produce sufficient aqueous tears to keep the whole eye moisturized. The leading reasons for this include rheumatologic disease, decreased corneal nerve sensation, multiple drugs (oral contraceptives, antidepressants, antihypertensives, antihistamines, beta-blockers, etc). The second type of dryness is a lack of tears do to evaporation. This is caused when you have a decreased production of oil on the eye. Without the oil the aqueous layer evaporates off the eye in seconds. Age is one of the main reasons for the eye to decrease production of the oil layer of the eye. Lastly decreased mucin production can cause serious dry eye disease by not allowing tears to form on the eye properly. F ortunately this is fairly uncommon and is usually caused by poor nutrition. How can my eye care professional check me for these problems? The most important thing is to not ignore these symptoms. Visit your eye doctor for a comprehensive evaluation and complain about your dryness! Dont suffer in silence with this problem. Your eye care professional will review your medical history for risk factors. Performing a bio-microscope slit lamp examination of your tear glands and tear film will give your doctor a better idea of your specific case. Additional testing including Schirmers test, tear break up time dye testing, and tear assay analysis can help your doctor understand how your dryness is occurring. How can I treat my eyes now that I know whats going on? There are many treatments for dry eye syndrome! There are many over the counter lubricating tear drops you could use. I caution my patients that not all tear drops are the same. Many have harsh preservatives harmful for the eyes. Others are exceptionally viscous and blur the vision. Holistic hot compress and lid hygiene treatments are extremely helpful as well. If these basic treatments are not sufficient medical treatment with cyclosporine agents, non-steroidal or steroidal anti inflammatory medicines may be needed. Minor surgical procedures used to decrease tear drainage can be utilized as well. If you are suffering with any of these problems I strongly recommend you visit your eye care professional for a comprehensive dry eye evaluation. You dont have to continue to ignore this health concern! Christopher Frey O.D. Dr Christopher Frey O.D.Board Certified Optometrist

Call Today for a complimentary cosmetic consult Freshen Up Your Look for The Holidays Botox Juvederm Latisse MINI IMPLANTS Many denture wearers are dissatisfied or even upset because they cant eat many of the foods they crave. Pastes, pads and worry about embarrassing slips and slides are a way of life. Dr. James Strawn has been practicing general dentistry on the Treasure Coast for over twenty years. Many of his patients wear dentures with varying degrees of success. Even a perfect fit may not provide the ability and comfort most people wish for, he said recently, and lets face it, were using a treatment method that hasnt changed much over the last hundred years. That is until now! About two years ago, Dr. Strawn began offering a new way to stabilize dentures with mini implants. This has opened a whole new world of ability and comfort, and is life-changing in most cases, he stated. One patient exclaimed that to him it is the biggest human advance since the discovery of water, he is so happy to have teeth that feel solid when he talks and enjoys a meal. I dont feel so much like an old man anymore. And it is surprisingly simple and affordable, according to Dr. Strawn. If a persons current denture is in good working condition, we can usually match it up to the new mini implants. That is a big savings right there, he said. The mini implants themselves are much less expensive than conventional implants. Minis are about one third as wide, so there is usually no need for extensive bone removal or gum surgery or months of healing. In most cases, the implants are immediately solid enough to connect to the denture and the patient walks out the first day with a stabilized denture. Each patient is shown how to snap the denture in over the implants and unsnap it too. Also, because the mini implants are so small, they can be used in situations where there would not be enough bone for conventional implants. Every person is different said Dr. Strawn, but we have found very few people who could not benefit from this treatment. A question we are often asked is, how long will they last, and how much maintenance is involved? said Dr. Strawn, He continued, My goal for each case is ten years or more. Mini implants have an excellent long term track record and have been classified by the FDA as such. Success can be affected by a persons overall health and the condition of the bone to be implanted, but we are very pleased with the results we are getting, and the patients are delighted. According to Dr. Strawn, a regular check-up and cleaning schedule is important for maintaining the function and health of the implants. While decay is no longer an issue, tartar and plaque can accumulate to cause gum inflammation and create a problem. The flexible o-rings that provide the denture grip on the implants also need to be changed about once a year. Check ups also allow for the denture itself to be checked and adjusted as needed. When its time for a new denture, can the same implants be used to hold it in? Yes, answers Dr. Strawn, as long as they are solid in place and the tissues are in good shape. We design the new denture to snap into them and continue the benefits of comfort and the solid feel. Another frequently asked question is how much discomfort and down time do patients experience after implant placement. I often compare this to having a tooth extracted said Dr. Strawn. The amount of discomfort can vary for each person, but we tailor every approach to control it so that the post operative period is as smooth and easy as possible. Dr. Strawn offers a free consultation for all who wish to consider mini implants. Dr James Strawn H ealth 686450W ellness S amsung refrigerator from Lowes. I researched it in C onsumer Reports and it was the No. 1 ranked sideby -side refrigerator. C onsumer Reports also indicated what I could expect to pay for this model. I expected to and did, in fact, but for slightly less than Consumer R eport suggested and Lowes advertised. Of course, I did have to add sales tax, but even the delivery and installation we re both included in the advertised price. If I had bought a car in Florida, the chances are about 99 percent there would be a surprise charge anywhere between $500 and $2,500 (or maybe higher). O ur Florida law on this subject restricts the dealer to not advertising a price that does not include the dealer fee. F irst of all, the law is not enforced at all. On any given day, I can show you many examples of car dealers who simply ignore this law. Some totally ignore it, some simply note in the fine print that the price quote in the large print is plus a dealer fee and do state the amount. S ome dont even state the amount. Many display a small innocuous number by the price, such as STK#123B. This means there is only one car advertised at this price. STK# stands for stock number. Your chances of buying this one car when y ou arrive are slim and none. What you can buy is another stock number car, which may be exactly the same, but, because it wasnt the specific advertised car, the dealer can legally add any amount to the price that he calls his dealer fee. F lorida law calls for no cap to the amount of a dealer fee its left up to the dealers gall and imagination. Of course the name dealer fee is just the most common one. There are dozens of different names because Florida law also does not specify one. This would make it too easy for the consumer. Dealer prep, doc fee, notary fee, pre-delivery fee and administrative fee are just a few. Sometimes the dealers will have two or three dealer fees. A popular one now is to mark up the electronic filing fee. This costs the dealer $12 and they can mark that up as much they want to. The law says this should be disclosed because it is considered a dealer fee, but many just ignore that. The legal disclosure on the buyers order should be: This charge represents costs and profits to the dealer for items such as inspecting, cleaning and adjusting vehicles and preparing documents related to the sale. What happens most of the time to customers is they dont have a chance to learn about the dealer fee until they get into the F&I office also known as the finance office or business office. This is when the dealer tries to make another profit by selling you products such as warranties and marking up the banks interest rate. Let me be clear, a fair profit is a good thing and y ou should consider buying warranties or letting the dealer sell you a warranty if he is competitive in his pricing. But what else happens in the F&I office is that you are confronted by a large number of documents with lots of fine print that y ou must sign. On one of these, if youre lucky, you will finally learn of the marked up electronic filing fee, doc fee, dealer prep fee or whatever else the dealer decides to call it and how much he decides to charge you. As often as not, you will believe these fees are legitimate federal, state or local taxes or fees. Y ou may not even notice them at all until you get home when its too late. Or y ou may believe that you have to pay these fees and everybody charges them so whats the harm? He lp me spread the word. Just say no to the dealer fee! Always get a competitive out-the-door price and shop and compare. If the dealer insists on adding a dealer fee, just be sure its included in the out-thedoor price and compare it with at least two other dealers prices. Wr ite your legislator and tell him how you feel about the dealer fee. Call y our local newspaper and TV station and tell them the same thing. We need laws like they have in C alifornia that keep the dealer fee under control. It s limited to $65 and every dealer calls it by the same name and charges the same thing. The C alifornia car buyer knows what hes paying for the car before he commits. StewartF rom page A8borhood. Dur ing a Christmas party, her father came to her and said, I know youre doing it with everyone else, she r ecalled. F ollowing that, her father abused her, she said. Y ears later, she told her mother about the abuse and discovered she had known about it all along. H er mother told her she stopped her father from doing it some of the time, she said. Over time, she said, she came to realize that these things were not my fault. In starting a family, she said, I had to break the cycle (of abuse). I had to do it for my children. As a mother, she vowed she would never let that happen to her daughters, she said. The event was organized by M indy Fetterman, a St. L ucie County resident, who also suffered child abuse. Pa rt of the message of the event was that perpetrators, not the victims, should be the ones suffering shame, she said. It would have been much more difficult to speak publicly about being a victim without having heard Ms. F etterman speak about the abuse from multiple perpetrators, including a boyfriend of her mother, the Po rt S t. Lucie woman said. What I learned from M indy was I wasnt alone, she said. The Rev. Nell Wilkins, a Po rt S t. Lucie pastor, who said she also suffered abuse, added that many women suffer in the darkness because they feel shame after being abused. The only thing I know to get rid of the darkness is light, the Rev. Wilkins said. S he said that years ago, she was at a church service attended by a number of older women, some of whom had suffered abuse. F or the first time, she said, she told church members about her story of abuse. That led some of the other women in attendance to talk about what happened to them, she said. W e were set free that night, the Rev. Wilkins said. As the Rev. Wilkins and others stood outside the museum, she said, We stand here for our grandmothers who did not have the courage to tell their stor ies. Another woman who told her story at the event said she was abused by the son of her godparents. F or years, she said, she felt worthless and suffered from eating disorders. Now she realizes none of it was her fault. Another woman who survived years of domestic abuse said she broke her silence in hope that others facing the same situation will escape. S he looked into her husbands eyes and knew he could kill her, she said. I learned to behave for 26 years. O thers should not wait 26 y ears to exit an abusive relationship, she said. The event included a walk through downtown with some participants carrying signs promoting an end to abuse and a self-defense demonstration from St. L ucie County deputies who teach rape aggression defense program classes. Ms. Fetterman said she plans to organize such an event again. I think it made a lot of people feel empowered, she added.AbuseF rom page A1 metal-cigarette type device with marijuana packed on one end of it. The woman told an officer that she was taking the marijuana with her on a fishing trip. I nstead of going fishing, she ended up getting treated at an emergency room and then heading toward the St. Lu cie County jail where she was charged with possession of 20 grams or less of marijuana, tampering with evidence and possession of drug paraphernalia. M aybe the old adage is true that there are days when it is better to stay in bed. M aybe they should appear on Judge Judy A pparently, a neighborhood in Port St. Lucie is not the type of neighborhood that was portrayed in Mr. R ogerss show that aired on the Public Broadcasting S ystem. A report indicated a woman and a man living next to each other have had problems for 14 years. Those problems apparently boiled to the surface last w eek when the man started taking pictures of his neighbors unleashed dogs. After seeing this, the woman became enraged and began knocking down a r ock wall separating their properties. S he also told St. Lucie C ounty deputies that she pulled her pants down in order to give him (the neighbor) something to take a picture of. S he was arrested and charged with lascivious behavior, disturbing the peace and criminal mischief. The report didnt say whether the neighbor took photos of her as she was led away in handcuffs.BlotterF rom page A1

The fun kicks off with the fine arts department and the IRSC holiday show, which is slightly different than previous shows. This is the first time we have given the event more of an entertainment focus, said Becky S hearer, manager for the M cAlpin Fine Arts Center. W e are combining dance with vocal and instrumental. The show will feature a combination of contemporary and traditional music for the whole family, and approximately 30 students are scheduled to perform. E veryone is excited, she said. We are expecting sold-out crowds. I ncluded in the performance will be the songs Its the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, J ingle Bell Rock, Fr osty the Snowman, Hav e Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and the H allelujah chorus from H andels Messiah. The show will also feature a special appearance from a secret S anta, as well as an audience sing along. The Hallstrom Planetarium has also planned some holiday festivities. An annual show, Star of Wonder will have viewers tracing what may have been the path of the star the wise men followed, and will show where the constellations and planets were at that time. What was it in the sky that compelled the Magi to embark on a journey hundreds of miles across deserts and mountains? asked Jon Bell, planetarium director. Also, there will be a live, one-night special concert Upon a Midnight Clear, that will feature electronic music of the season by composer and artist John Serrie. Mr. Serrie will perform on keyboards as Mr. Bell projects special effects of stars. The holiday show will take place on Dec. 9 at 8 p .m. and Dec. 10 at 2 p .m. and 8 p.m. Tickets are $12.

Today we will make my familys traditional Christmas Eve appetizer, an antipasto. Antipasto is not a salad, but sectioned trays filled with delectable foods. No lettuce is used. Genoa salami, provolone cheese, roasted red peppers, pickled mushrooms, pickled eggplant, marinated artichoke hearts, caponata (eggplant appetizer), sardines, anchovies, capers, black and green olives create a magnificent display. You can add tomato wedges, tuna, hard-boiled egg or any other appetizer food that will fit. Each appetizer is prepared separately. The salami must be sliced paper-thin and rolled pencil-thin. The provolone is not the slicing kind found in supermarkets, but a strong cheese found in gourmet cheese sections, delis or meat markets. The domestic is a little milder than the imported; cut in w edges. Each is placed in its own section for individual selection. Cr usty Italian or French bread completes the feast. Now Id like to share with y ou a very old and special family tradition that my grandfather, Luciano C amerino, born in Bari, I taly, brought to America. A crche (nativity with a stable, Mary and Joseph, a cradle for the Christ child, kings, stable hands, animals, etc.) is set up, but the infant child is placed elsewhere, since he hasnt been born yet. On Christmas Eve at midnight, with appropriate music in the background, the lights are extinguished. Ev eryone carries a lit household candle, except the youngest child, who carries the baby Jesus on a silver tray. The oldest family member navigates the child in a procession throughout the home, blessing each room. The procession goes in birth order, and guests are always included. The Christ child is then placed into His cradle. All kneel and pray, the candles are extinguished and all embrace and wish each other a blessed Merry Christmas. Enjoy. See you next week. NOTE: All can be made days in advance, refrigerated and served at room temperature.R R O O A A STE STE D D R R E E D P D P E E P P P P E E R R S SSw eet red bell peppers come jarred, but roasting y our own is easy and the flavor is wonderful.
