PORT ST. LUCIE This holiday season, a Port St. L ucie attorney has something for which to be thankful. Leonard S. Villafranco, the attorney, is back at work advocating the needs of clients in Port St. Lucie and elsewhere on the Treasure Coast. Earlier in the year, an unavoidable accident r esulted in him being unable to work for weeks. F or two months, I was completely out of commission, Mr. Villafranco r ecalled last week. It was on May 23, while he was traveling on his motorcycle on Airoso B oulevard, when the unexpected happened, he said. Ahead of him a vehicle was stopped in the roadway. The vehicle directly in front of him made a sudden stop to avoid hitting the stopped vehicle, he said. To avoid slamming into the second vehicle, Mr. Villafranco said, he had to drop his motorcycle. He had no choice because traffic on the road stopped him from changing lanes, he said. And that busted up his left leg, resulting in damage to the cartilage. He also suffered injuries to six r ibs in nine different places, he said. S ince then, hes needed four surgeries, Mr. Villafranco said. He still walks with a limp and is hoping to avoid having to have a knee r eplacement, he said. As an attorney who has practiced in St. Lucie C ounty since 2005 and handles family law, personal injury and criminal cases, Mr. Villafranco said he may find himself in a different role in legal action. B ut hes hoping to avoid that, he said. The accident hasnt diminished his enthusiasm for riding a motorcycle and he looks forward to r iding one again, he said. At the time of the accident, he was riding his H arley Davidson Electroglide Classic. He r ode a motorcycle when he was younger and got back into it five years ago. H is office is located at 1430 S.W.St.Lucie West Bl vd .,Suite 103 and the telephone number is (772) 871-6441. Jail decision postponeduntil SeptemberST. LUCIE COUNTY At least until October, St. L ucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara will continue operating the county jail. Earlier this year, Sheriff Mascara notified the county that as of Jan. 1, 2012, he would be handing over the operation of the jail to county administrators. S heriff Mascara sent the letter after county administrator Faye Outlaw asked him to cut $7 million from the jail budget and suggested priv ately managing the jail could save the county money. B ut since then, attorneys representing the sheriff and county have disagreed the sheriff can legally hand over the jail to county administrators. In view of that, the sheriff wrote a letter to Chris Cr aft, chairman of the St. Lucie County Commission, in September, saying he would postpone handing over the jail until the end of September 2012. The disagreement between the attorneys should be resolved, he said in the letter. As both attorneys have confirmed, while each is confident in their position, there is little direct guidance provided by existing case law, he said.

This column highlights cases that often leave observers shaking their heads.Convicting yourselfIt s been said that most liars eventually trip themselves up. That appears to be the case with a Port St. Lucie man. The man claimed he thought someone had burglarized his mobile home and in the darkness he fired a shot at a burglar he never saw. B ut a woman told police that the mans girlfriend had given her a key to the mobile home so she could pick up a baby jumper she let a girlfriend borrow. S he said she knocked on the door and no one answered. So she used the key and retrieved the baby jumper. As she and a friend were leaving, the man confronted her and threatened her with a gun. When confronted with what the woman and her friend said, the man told police she didnt have any r ight to be in the home. The problem with that was the police officer never mentioned the victim was a female, yet the man claimed he never saw the supposed burglar.

LUCIE Being one of the states most populous cities has its perks. At the Port St. Lucie City Co uncil meeting Dec. 12, the council unanimously passed a resolution the city be granted a seat on the board of the Florida League of Cities. The league is a state grouping of all of Floridas municipal governments. It first formed in 1922, and has since grown to represent more than 400 cities in the state. The group uses the collective voice of all the members to help guide state legislation and share municipal ideas. It is overseen by a group of officials elected in theirClinic performs exclusive researchST. LUCIE COUNTY In a small building off Midway R oad sits the Midway I mmunology and Research C enter. While area residents might know it for its work in HIV and hepatitis C diseases, few realize its only one of four clinics in the country currently in the clinical trial phase of the management of the diseases. I try to do things quietly and efficiently, said Moti R amgopal, the clinics director. His clinic has been here for 12 years. When we first started, HIV was a large disease in the community, he said. N ow HIV is still just as prominent, but we are also are looking at the rise of hepatitis C cases. The two diseases are both part of a larger group of infectious diseases that theAttorney back at work after serious accidentMitch Kloorfain /chief photographerT reasure Coast High Schools Holly Delbusto tries to work through Lincoln Park Academys Teresa Cortes (No. 22) during a game played at Calvin Trippet Field before the holiday break.

clinic sees. Most people have experienced infectious disease when they suffer through a bout of the flu. B ut certain ones are increasing in the number of people infected because of the way the disease is passed from one person to another. W ith younger people, y ou see a new wave of IV drug users, said Dr. Ramgopal. Also, prescription drug abuse has increased the usage of needles and other injection devices, which drug users share with each other. He says sharing such items, along with sexual contact, are some of the ways a person can develop hepatitis C or HIV. Pa rt of the reason those diseases remain active is that those who carry them dont know to be tested for them, which allows the diseases to progress to dangerous levels before discovery. P atients have to request to be tested, he said. If more patients are treated earlier, it would reduce the ov erall cost of the diseases. He hopes the research he is doing can also help toward that goal. Dr Ramgopal and his clinic have been involved in more than 50 clinical trials and are actively involved in 20 different protocol trials. He r ecently entered into a partnership with VGTI in Po rt S t. Lucie, and using the technology there has treated more than 300 patients using the latest cutting-edge antiretroviral therapy on the market. B ut its not the first time. Ev ery treatment that has been on the market in the last three years had Midway Im munology Research Center involved in its clinical trial stage. Right now, the center is treating 13 patients, studying immune functions with V GTI. The groups are looking for how HIV replicates and spreads. I f we can stop the replication, we can kill the virus and cure the patient, he said. There have been significant gains. Through their work, HIV treatment has changed, so now patients taking six pills a day can now take just one pill a day. H epatitis C has seen groundbreaking results, as w ell. Instead of being known as the disease with no cure, new treatments and medications have seen patients cured of the disease in as little as six months. O ur challenge is the next five to 10 years, he said. The progress we have made in the last five years is very exciting.

S heriff Mascara invited C ommissioner Craft and the county commission to join him in asking a court to r esolve the issue. C ommissioner Craft could not be reached for comment. How ever, Eric Gill, the countys public information officer, said the county is waiting on a study, which among other things would look at the pros/cons of county administrators operating the jail. That study is expected to be completed by February, Mr. Gill said. In his original letter to the county, Sheriff Mascara said he feels he runs the jail efficiently. I f the county believes there is an opportunity to save millions of dollars in the operating budget of the jail by some other method of management or entity doing so, then it would be irresponsible of me to prevent the taxpayers from enjoying such savings, he said. M ajor cuts in the jail budget would compromise safety and also affect the constitutional rights of prisoners, he said.

D id it ever occur to you and some Republicans that you will all be voted out? W ake up. They already have their own people ready to step in. I know how hard you fight for felons and illegal aliens to vote, just about as hard as you try to block our brave soldiers votes. At least some felons are legal citizens. What part of illegal is so hard to understand? Crossing our borders is just the first law that is broken. I consider it invading a sovereign country. Driving and holding a license is a privilege. I know a few people who have been jailed for losing this privilege. What about the issue of identity theft and giving out false Social Security numbers? Again, American citizens are jailed for this crime. My daughters could not cross lines to attend public schools, y et illegal aliens are welcomed with open arms. My children could not travel to an out-of-state school and expect to get in-state tuition, yet we give it to illegal aliens, not to mention every form of public aid and top priority for scholarships. There is absolutely no respect for this country. Now the M exican flag is flown over ours. They have the right to be patriotic to a country they fled, in our homeland, yet we have to fight to be patriotic in our own country. Enough is enough, Id move my family to Mexico when it finally empties out, but guess what, you can never become a full citizen there. Funny, their southern border is protected by the military.Stay warm in chilly weatherThis is a grandmother giving advice to some younger people. P lease cover up the little children. It gets chilly in the stores and we have a couple more months of cooler weather. And the older folks should keep warm, too. We dont want you getting sick and passing your germs along.Native American discrimination?We are entering 2012 and the group most discriminated against is Native Americans. Everybody is worried about where they are from and what continent they were born on, but the truth is, the most discriminated group is the group who was here before everyone. The Indian people need to get their land back and everyone else needs to stop thinking its theirs. Go back to where y ou came from. You brought poverty and crime. Give the land back to who deserves it.More ways to conserveId like to give a couple more ideas on how to conserve water. I keep water in the refrigerator so I dont have to wait for the tap water to get cold, and I turn the faucet under the sink in the bathroom to low, so I dont waste water when I brush my teeth. Thinking about the primariesThe primaries are for Americans to vote for who they think is best to serve this nation. The election will be a vote against President Obama and his job killing war on the middle class. Unjust regulation, litigation, taxation and mandated health care are big boots on the necks of small businesses and small banks, which by the way, employ the vast majority of the middle class. Only the big corporations and big banks can afford the burdensome costs that Obamination has caused. So yes, America, even though he says he is for the middle class, President Obama is destroying the middle class with his policies and it has always been the middle class that has made America prosperous and free. M any, if not all, of the worlds greatest leaders were womanizers, but they improved the lives of regular people. A mans sex life is none of our business and what was done to Her man Cain and his family is unforgivable. If Mr. Cain had been another bankrupt career politician, he would have sacr ificed his familys well-being, but he is not a career politician. I live in Florida and Mr. Cain is on the ballot here. I will be voting for the true outsider. I will be voting for a man who knows what a small business needs to grow and provide jobs for all Americans. I will be voting for the 9-9-9 plan, which will take power and control and corrupt cronyism out of W ashington. No deductions, no loopholes, no subsidies to the powerful. No special interests payoff to corrupt, entitled politicians. I will be voting for a man who knows how to solve problems. I like a president with a clear view of foreign policy. Why do we make nice and give money to our enemies? I will be voting for a man who wants to make America energy independent. I will be voting for a man who will support a fair and just immigration policy. I will be voting for a man who will neutralize class and race warfare by just being himself, a man who has lived the true American dream. I will be voting for a true leader, Herman Cain, in the primary. Americans have said we want change in Washington, a much smaller and fiscally sound government and one whose programs work properly, while providing the service they we re originally meant to do. This man can bring us together and lead us back to prosperity. Herman Cain can and will get America back on its feet. He loves America and will never hurt her. Repeal ObamacareIf we accomplish just one thing in 2012 it should be to r epeal Obamacare. When we allow political ideology to trump the health of the individual, we have made a terrible mistake. The federal government response to Hurricane Katrina compounded a natural disaster. The present recession is an example of how politicians permitted political correctness to bring down the economy of the entire nation. The post office annually loses $5 billion and has no idea of how to correct the situation. H opefully, we can make more than one improvement next y ear, but getting rid of a federal mandate controlling our health would be super.Scare tactics didnt workD espite the scare tactics of environmentalists, shale gas is shaving energy bills for an increasing number of customers. And the savings are huge. R eflecting improving technology and significant increases in supply, in some places, prices have fallen by almost half in three years. As the industry expands, expect to hear even more positive news.Justice system failureM ichael Plumadore, a 39-year-old, is another example of how the Florida system of so-called justice is a colossal mess. Living in a trailer park in Fort Wayne, Ind., Mr. Plumadore has admitted to killing and using a chain saw to cut up the r emains of a 9-year-old girl. This despicable murderer had a criminal record here for assault and trespassing. The Florida legal system allowed him to walk free with disastrous results. Its time for reform. Got something to say?

He thanked them and the rest of the choir for their charitable performances and the way they have given back to the community through song and positive behavior during a holiday dinner at Big Apple Pizza. Happy New Year. It looks like 2012 is going to be a much better year. On the business side of things, with the addition of Ver non and Chris Smith's leadership and support to our management team, H ometown News has made some great strides in several key areas. We also have some very exciting news we will be announcing soon. On the personal side of things, anything would be better than the year my wife, my family and I have gone through this past year. The year started with the passing of my father on Dec 23, a few days before 2011 began and then, of course, the terrible and tragic accident that took the life of my incredible 16-yearold son, Austin, in July. The 150 days that have followed, have been shearagony. There has not been one day that tears have not been shed by both my wife, Elaine, and myself. I know it has been tougher for her, as she was always proud of her status as a stay-athome mom. Now she stays home, but stays there alone. I, on the other hand, am able to block thesaddening thoughts through out most of the day as I focus on the challenges and successes we have experienced here at the paper. Ev eryday we spend time talking to Austin and praying to God that he is OK and doing the work that God took him to do. We talk, but you always wonder if anyone is listening. Is there really something else after you leave y our physical body? Is there r eally another chapter? You want to believe, but you always wonder if it is real or justreligions way of keeping people on the straight and narrow while we are here on earth. Let me tell you of a couple of recent experiences that have taken those questions away from us and have pretty much given us hard-core proof that this life is just the beginning. The first incident happened this past November. I had been having some chest pains. Not all the time but they would come at any time, last for anywhere from 5 minutes to 20 minutes; very uncomfortable and somewhat painful. Being the tough guy that I am, I put off going to the doctor until it was happening so often that it was becoming a problem to do all the things that I needed to do. I went in, had the first r ound of tests, and the doc said I better come back for another round as something didn't look right. The second round of tests led to a third visit to go in with the heartcatheter to see exactly where the blockage was and to put in a stint. I didn't think of it as any real big deal. It runs in the family. My father had a pacemaker implanted in his late 40s. The night before I went in, I had a talk with Austin and God. I don't want to go into details, but I would imagine it was pretty standarddialogue any of us would have in a situation like this. The next morning, Elaine took me to the hospital for the procedure. The doc was ready to go and even was bragging to the other doctors that he could tell them where the blockage was to save them some time. They put me under and slid the catheter up and into the heart. Much to the amazement of all the personnel in the room, there was no blockage, it was gone. The heart was pumping as pure as a newborn baby. This gave me cause to pause. Did Austin and God fix my heart? I wanted to think so but Then it happened. The event soblatant, so obvious, in black and white, that it could not be explained away. Austin sent me a text. That's right.

Central Park Plaza Port St. Lucie,FL 34986(772) 336-8111kellysanimalhospital.com 687190 Hyperthyroidism (thyrotoxicosis) is the most commonly diagnosed endocrinological disorder in older cats.It usually affects cats ov er 10 years of age but can be seen in cats younger than that.The most common clinical sign is an older cat that is losing weight in spite of having a ravenous appetite.The paired thyroid glands lie in the neck on either side of the trachea.They control the bodys metabolism.An overactive gland produces too much thyroid hormone increasing the cats metabolic r ate as well as the heart rate.Vomiting, increased thirst and urination, and diarrhea are other common clinical signs of hyperthyroid cats. Diagnosis is made with a thorough physical exam and bloodwork.Most h yperthyroid cats have at least one enlarged thyroid that can be palpated by a veterinarian during a routine physical exam.We encourage complete b lood panels and thyroid profiles in any cat over 7 years of age.We have diagnosed hyperthyroidism in many cats with bloodwork results before they became clinically apparent.Hyperthyroidism can lead to a heart condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, increased liver enzymes, h ypertension and kidney disease. There are 4 treatment options for cats diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. Medical:This treatment has been the most popular alternative because of the relatively low cost.The downside is cats do not like to be pilled and this option usually requires twice a day pilling for the rest of the cats life, and at least biannual blood test monitoring. Surgical:This option is a much less common choice with the availability of the third option.Mammals have 2 thyroid glands and only one can be removed at a time to avoid serious post operative complications.The cost of bilateral thyroidectomies is comparable to the next and best option. (I 131) radioactive iodine treatment:This is the treatment modality that people get when diagnosed with hyperthyroidism or Graves Disease. This treatment has to be done at special treatment centers.We use the Animal Emergency and Referral Center in Fort Pierce.Radioactive iodine is injected under the skin of an affected cat.The cats thyroid gland needs iodine to produce thyroid hormone so it picks up the r adioactive iodine.The radioactive iodine burns the overactive gland and cures the disease.There is only about a 5% recurrence rate with this treatment and eliminates the necessity of twice a day pilling. Hills Y/Ddiet:Hills Science diet has come out with an iodine free prescription diet food that can be given to hyperthyroid cats.Cats on this diet cannot get any other food or any treats, because they contain iodine.The thyroid gland cannot produce thyroid hormone without iodine so the disease is managed and controlled in that manner.The diet is e xtremely palatable, and if the client can comply with this diet only, it is a very reasonable, and cost effective way to control the disease Cats that have concurrent kidney disease may do better with medical or dietary management of the disease rather than the permanent options of surgery or the (I 131) radioactive treatment.

www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, January 6, 2012 Po rt St. Lucie A9 M odern Advances in dental technology and surgical techniques mean now, more and more people who have lost their natural teeth can live fuller, richer, and happier lives. They allow the person to go to favorite r estaurants and order what they want to eat, instead of what they can eat. Dental implants can r estore a persons ability to eat, smile, kiss and talk with confidence and comfort. A dental implant is a substitute tooth root that provides a stable foundation for replacement teeth. The implant is anchored into the jawbone through a process where the bone and the implant become integrated, providing the same stability as natural teeth. This means that replacement teeth can look, feel, and function just like real teeth! S ince dental im-plants, like teeth, are embedded in the jaw, the painful chewing associated with removable teeth is eliminated. Unlike traditional dentures, im-plants supports dentures so that there is little pressure on the gums.A dditionally, dental implants can be used to solve a variety of dental problems. For example, implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth instead of making a traditional bridge. They can be placed to support an entire bridge where the natural teeth are missing, or they can be used to give the patient a better fitting denture so they can eliminate the problems traditionally associated with dentures.B est of all, youll be able to smile more naturally and be comfortable in normal activities such as talking, laughing, smiling and eating. E xplore dental im-plants as a solution to your personal dental problems. C all Dr. Rankin today to schedule your FREE personal consultation and examination.

Hello smart shoppers. This week were gonna make some delicious meals with leftover turkey. F irst, lets get even smarter by learning what cooking terms mean with my cook-a-cabulary, a vocabulary about cooking. Alphabetically speaking, here we go! BASTE: to moisten food while cooking with pan drippings to prevent dryness. BLANCH: to precook in steam or boiling water to r emove skin or to prepare food for canning or freezing. BLEND: to thoroughly mix ingredients with an electric mixer or a whisk until smooth. BRAISE: to cook slowly in a little liquid with the pan tightly covered. BREAD: to coat with breadcrumbs before cooking. BROIL: to cook by direct heat under the broiler of a stove. BUT TERFLY: to split foods horizontally, such as chicken breasts or meat, without separating the sections then laying flat. CARAMELIZE: to melt sugar slowly over low heat until it becomes brown in color. To caramelize onions the same process is followed using a little shortening or water until they become lightly golden and translucent. CO AT : to cover foods with crumbs, flour or batter before cooking. DREDGE: pressing food firmly into seasoned flour to coat heavily. FOLD: to add ingredients gently, such as folding in beaten egg whites by placing a spatula down into the mixture at the side of the bowl scraping along the bottom then coming up and ov er turning the bowl often until well incorporated. GLAZE: to brush a mixture over top of food to give it a shine or hard finish. KNEAD: to work dough with the heel of your hand in a pressing and folding motion. PUREE: to convert food into a liquid or paste using a blender, food processor or food mill. REDUCE: to boil a mixture to evaporate liquid so it becomes thicker. SCORE:to cut narrow criss-cross slits on each side of meat or poultry without cutting through. Any more questions? Ca n t you feel yourself getting smarter by the minute? Enjoy.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY It isnt his first go round, but for Coach Jeff Merit and his Port St. Lucie Pirates, it was may have been their most dramatic. On Dec. 9, the Pirates defeated the Marsh Creek Eagles from Pennsylvania 12-8 to collect their second P op Warner Football national championship at ESPNs Wide World of S ports Complex in Orlando. N icholas Celidonio ran in the go-ahead touchdown from 1-yard out to put the Pirates on top with just 30 seconds left in the game and to complete a 17-0 season. Along with Celidonio, the championship roster included: Michael Cheyne, C edrick Wilcox IV, Luis Gonzalez, Jalen Mitchell, D an Vaughn, Julian Rivera, Z ac Barsuglia, Jacob Dutton, Jerry Johnson, Mikey F aurot, T.J. Curd, Dylan Pfeiffer, Codee Keighley, Q uwayne Brown, Riley O'Neill, D.J. Robinson, Dwight Toombs, Jahfari Ha rv ey, Connor Slappey, Lance Bianchini, Rolando Linares, Austin Estes, Z achary Schandelmeier, J ustin O'Leary, Maurice Green, Xavier Correa and Anthony Brown. M uch like at the highschool or college levels, on the game-winning drive, C oach Merit called on the spread option offense, where receivers are spread across the field, often creating running lanes. This offense and the chunks of yards they were getting on the ground allowed the Pirates to march down the field from their own 18yard line. We just ran zone-read plays that we ran and had r eal good success with all y ear, Merit said. W e couldnt have done it without our offensive line. They blocked it up good and actually our r eceivers, even though we we re n t passing the ball, did an excellent job blocking, to really spring those ru ns to be being 10 yards to being 30 yards. That sounds complex for a bunch of 8 to 11 year olds, but the work has been put in by these kids on the practice field since A ugust. B efore the start of school, they are allowed four days of practice a w eek. During the school y ear, they are allowed to practice six hours a week. Although offense often makes the headlines, Merit credits his defense for not only giving the Pirate offense a shot at the end, but credits them for their dominance all season. O ur defense kept us in that game, Merit said. W e didnt give up a first down until midway through the fourth quarter and our defense has only given up three offensive touchdowns all year long in 17 games. W ith their efforts, one of the benefits of making it this far in Pop Warner F ootball is that the ESPN Sp orts Complex in Orlando where they compete for the title is located in Disney. Nonetheless to say, the work was worth the reward. They had a blast, said Mer it. We go up on Friday. We played Saturday, came back, then we went up again Monday and played T uesday. Tuesday night we w ent to Disney Quest and spent five to six hours at D isney Quest Wednesday. Mer it added, We want to win but we want to have fun, too. We have to balance the winning, working and letting our hair down and having some fun.

I hope the holidays left you with pleasant memories and new-found promise for 2012. F or us, a successful year in golf may mean just getting out a few more times to play. It may mean a new set of irons or a trip to a course youve longed to play. Perhaps it means a career-best round or one with an old friend or r elative. Whatever it is, I hope that you find it. F or the more famous people in golf, I have a few predictions for 2012. While I am nowhere near as famous as Nostradamus, I hope I can be just a bit more accurate with my crystal ball. W ith that, here are my top predictions for 2012. In a move to increase his slipping chances of catching Jack Nicklaus, T iger Woods petitions the powers-that-be at Augusta N ational to trim their invite list for The Masters to 18 players. S eeing as Tigers lone win in the last two years came at his own, limited-field event, he hopes the samesize field at Augusta will better his odds of winning at put him that much closer to Jacks record for major wins. Alas, despite protests by Al Sharpton and the Rev. J essie Jackson outside M agnolia Lane, the Green J ackets will politely turn down Tigers request. While T iger will be in the hunt, it will be Jason Day who holds off Luke Donald to slip on the coat come w eeks end. To which Tiger will comment sorely, I wouldnt have even invited him. At the U.S. Open, we will witness the most tightly packed leaderboard in decades. With the Olympic Club playing to a mere 7,060 yards, nearly the entire field will find themselves in the hunt. N ot having to hit long irons and fairway woods into concrete-hard greens will help the short hitters stay in contention. I look for a short-but-accurate player to win this major. We may even see someone from the Champions Tour hoist the cup by nightfall on Fathers Day. On the flip side, I expect to see the youngest champion in history win a major on the ladies side of golf. Lexi Thompson will win a major this year and become the youngest woman to do so by nearly a y ear. That is if Yani Tseng cools off long enough for anyone other than her to win any tournament. At the Open Championship, Sergio Garcia will finally get that giant gorilla off his back. He will claim his first major in style beating the hottest youngster in golf, Rory McIlroy and the man everyone thought hed be rival to, T iger Woods, in a playoff at Ro yal Lytham & St. Annes. F or Garcia it will complete his career comeback that began with back-toback wins on the European T our late this past year. For T iger, it will be his second near miss of the year, something that will begin to eat at him as the year progresses. At the years final major, we will see a shootout between no less than six 20-somethings. In the end, Rickie Fowler will triumph. At his press conference after the tournament, he will show up sans hat and with a new haircut. I think we will see the demise of a fine man and golfer this year. Ernie Els putting woes will continue and he will go from the belly putter, to the long putter, to putting lefthanded, to trying a wedge and then a hybrid in an effort to drop a putt. Els slipped from 42nd in putting in 2010 to 180th in 2011. Its difficult to stay competitive and even harder to stay positive when you cannot make a 3foot putt. The final nail in the coffin for Els, and the beginning of a slide for others, will come when the Ro yal & Ancient actually bans the long putter. There is currently a rule limiting how short a putter may be. While its difficult to limit the overall length of a specific club, I expect to see the R&A make the swinging of a club by anchoring it to any spot on the body, other than the hands or the wrists, against the rules. With its usual aplomb, the USGA will wait another two years before implementing the same r ule. F inally, we will see a mainstay of the U.S. Ryder C up team not make the squad. Sadly, Phil Mickelson, who has seen more than his fair share of mountains to climb, will slide out of the players qualifying for the team on points. Its unlikely that captain Davis Love III, will pick him with so many hot, y oung players to choose from.

S eeing the kids grow up to be good, productive yo ung men means more to me than the wins and losses said Merit. F ootball is my avenue to help these kids. Some of them need guidance. S ome of them might not have father figures around and I really look at that as my biggest satisfaction. The impact that me and all the coaches try to have on these boys, teaching them right from wrong, being good young men, respectful and hard working to help them achieve their dreams. If yo u work hard enough, y ou can achieve whatever dream you have. I dont think we had the most talented team in the country but I think we had the hardest working team in the country. We had a goal, we r eached it.

2ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOUNG New year a chance to try something new It s a new year and many of us have made resolutions. Some of us have already broken them. We may want to exercise more, eat better or lose weight. Perhaps we want to reconnect with friends and family. Some of us may want to try something new. Thats our focus this month. In this issue of Fo re v er Young, yo u ll meet people who tried something they hadnt done before. In some cases it was exercising or taking up a sport. In other cases, it was a change in career or a new pursuit after r etirement. Some of the people had physical limitations. Others had survived cancer and r ethought their priorities. The common thread for all the stories is that it is never too late to try something new. It doesnt have to be a life-changing move. So metimes its as simple as taking up bridge or ballroom dancing. All of the people interviewed for these pages have taken that first step, the hardest one of all. M ost were apprehensive. Many we re afraid theyd make fools of themselves. They decided not let that bother them. What they found was that challenging themselves kept them young, gave them confidence and made them feel better about themselves.

3January 2012FOREVER YOU NG Heroic cop an acting pro PORT ST. LUCIE Emmett Fitzsimmons comes from a long line of cops. H is father was a police lieutenant and all of his uncles served. He joined the NYPD in 1967, as a civilian employee, because he was too young. He was sworn in, but could not carry a firearm. Y ou did clerical work, he said. On y our 21st birthday, they gave you a gun and a badge. That was Mr. Fizsimmons day job, but he had another budding career, as an actor. H is twin brother, Tom, was doing some modeling. They were looking for twins for a Gillette ad and Tom wanted them to audition. Emmett refused until his brother told him how much the job paid, I got my Screen Actors Guild card on the spot, he said. We did a series of commercials for twin things. Thats when it started. It was a lot easier and nobody was shooting. In 1974, a shootout with robbers r esulted in his receiving the Combat Cross, the NYPDs second highest departmental award. It is given to police officers by the mayor of New York for acts of extraordinary heroism, while engaged in personal combat with an armed adversary under circumstances of imminent personal hazard to life. Mr. Fitzsimmons left the force after 20 y ears. He had been taking acting lessons as his schedule permitted, studying at HB Studios and Weist-Barron Studios in N ew York. I had my (Equity) card and was able to move around the industry, he said. I started looking at film work. In the theater, even with Equity, theres a low pay r ate. I was working full time and I couldnt take the time off to rehearse. I kept studying and doing work as an extra to see what happened on movie sets. It was a great experience and I learned a lot. When Mr. Fitzsimmons father had a stroke, he took early retirement and moved to Florida to help care for his father. He made several appearances in M iami Vice and Americas Most W anted. In the s and s, there was a lot of film work in Florida and Mr. Fitsimmons kept busy. I was the right age range and look for almost everything that came to Florida, he said. I got more and more work. When Florida discontinued tax incentives for filmmaking, the industry moved to Louisiana and Texas. Mr. F itzsimmons started working as a priv ate investigator. He also began shooting short films and won an award at the Fo rt Lauderdale International Film Festival. Mr. Fitsimmons began making trips to New York to continue studying and auditioning. He had purchased a house in Port St. Lucie as an investment, hoping to sell it quickly. When the real estate market collapsed, he decided to stay. I saw an opportunity for volunteer work, he said. I volunteered where I could do the most good, in local community theater. He found that the local groups, including the Pineapple Playhouse and the Barn Theatre, have their own r ewards. C ommunity theater is not as pressure-filled, he said. Theyre doing it By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor Emmett FitzsimmonsSee ACTING, Page 18 680939ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWS

LUCIE During the week, Arlene Brown is one of the owners of Ally Parker Brown Title Insurance Agency. On the weekends, though, she and a group of friends shes dubbed the Golden Girls, take to the water with paddleboards for fun and exercise. Ms. Brown is a long time resident of the area. I v e lived more then 30 years in Port St. Lucie, she said. I v e been here since before grocery stores. I came from Por tsmouth, Va. and ended up here with my son. Now this is my home. H er son, Moose, and his wife, Jennifer, introduced Ms. Bro wn to paddle boarding. They have a business in Jensen Beach, Treasure Coast P addle, she said. They got interested and they both lost a tremendous amount of weight and were so excited. They had so much fun and I wanted to do it. They got the boards and told me I could do it. I started in the spring and it was so addictive. It was fun exercise and you dont know yo u re exercising. Ms. Brown enjoyed the activity so much that she got together several of her friends.

6ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOUNG Photo courtesy of Wendy DwyerGail and John Luchka have been active behindthe scenes at the Pineapple Playhouse for many years. John recently retired from FP&L and has begun directing plays with Gail as his stage manager. Couple keeps active in community theater PORT ST. LUCIE When Gail L uchka decided to audition for a part in a community theater production, she brought her husband, John, along for moral support. She didnt get a part, but John did. I w ent to help Gail, John said. I knew there wouldnt be that many men. I got roped in. B oth Luchkas eventually decided they preferred to work behind-thescenes. Today, they are involved in the Pineapple Playhouse, where John builds sets and is sound and lighting director and Gail manages the box office. J ohn recently retired after 37 years at FPL in the nuclear quality assurance department. Building sets, though, came naturally. I always had a construction background, he said. My father was in construction and I liked building things. Learning the technical areas of lighting and sound came later. A friend was doing it and he taught me everything he knew, John said. I just enjoy it. Its almost more stressful than being on stage. You can make or break a show by messing up the lights and sound. G ail got involved with the theater for a very personal reason. I used to be very, very shy, she said. I took a class in speech before our daughter was born. I thought the next thing Id love to do was to try to be on stage.

7ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOU NG IN HEALTHHappiness PORT ST. LUCIE Two years ago, when Bob Zeller was 63, he had no health insurance. He went for free health screenings offered near his home. The report was not good. There were warnings I was heading for a heart attack, stroke or diabetes, he said. There were also steps I could take to reduce the risk. I looked at the report every day for a w eek. Then I began to cry and said, I want to do something, I want to change. A light went on and I wanted to take action. That wake-up call sent Mr. Zeller and his wife, Mary, on a journey to health. Mary Zeller, a diabetic, was taking four shots of insulin a day. They began reading and studying, and after talking to their physician, began making changes. W e took it seriously, Mr. Zeller said. We began to look at what was being recommended and learned step-by-step. We started out with low fat and exercising every day. As the Zellers began to lose weight and feel better, something happened inside, as well. The basic difference was that it w ent from my head to my heart, Mr. Z eller said. I was able to put into action what we were learning and apply it every day. W e encouraged each other to just do it. It was getting over the hurdle of putting away the junk food and preparing and enjoying healthy food. The Zellers began planning what they were going to eat each day and thinking about what they would eat if they went out.

9ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOU NG Being an informed voter On Jan. 31, Florida Republican voters go to the polls to say wholl get Floridas delegates to the GOP national convention in T ampa this August. While Florida Democrats wont vote in a presidential primary most observers say its virtually certain that the Democratic national convention will nominate President Obama F loridas Jan. 31 primary election could play a major role in the outcome of the race for the Republican nomination. To help older Floridians sort out where candidates stand on issues important to voters 50+, AARP Florida is helping voters to track the candidates positions especially on critical pocketbook issues such as protecting and strengthening Social Security and M edicare. AARP is nonpartisan and does not endorse candidates for any election or contribute money to any politicalaction committee or campaign. AARP does work to educate its 37 million members, including 2.7 million members in Florida, on key issues. In O ctober, an AARP Florida poll showed a significant and troubling gap between where some Republican candidates stood on cuts to Social S ecurity and Medicare and where F lorida Republican voters stood. The poll showed that by huge margins at least two to one GOP voters stoutly opposed cuts to future r ecipients Social Security benefits, or cuts to Medicare benefits, as a way to r educe the federal deficit. F or example, Florida Republicans who identified themselves as Tea Party supporters, and who also said they had attended Tea Party events, opposed cuts to Social Security for future beneficiaries as a way to reduce the deficit by a margin of 56.1 to 37.9 percent. The same voters opposed cuts to Medicare as a way to reduce the deficit by 62.1 to 31.8 percent, almost exactly two to one. In other groups of Florida Republican voters, the margins were far more lopsided. Hispanic Republicans opposed Social Security cuts as a deficit-reduction measure by 84.5 percent to 13.5 percent, a crushing sixto-one margin. While Florida Republicans overall opposed cuts to Medicare as a means of reducing the deficit by 70.4 percent to 22.2 percent, Hispanic R epublicans opposed Medicare cuts 77 percent to 16.5 percent, more than a four-to-one margin. Y et much of the political buzz about the GOP primary has centered on ideas for cutting Social Security benefits for future retirees, or reductions to Medicare reimbursements, as a way of lowering the federal governments operating deficit. AARP believes this poll shows a startling disconnect between what W ashington and the candidates are thinking about Social Security and M edicare, and what Florida GOP voters want them to do. The poll showed that those Florida R epublicans likely to vote in the Jan. 31 primary are overwhelmingly 50+, for whom Social Security and M edicare are very important issues. AARP Florida believes it can play an important role by helping voters learn where candidates stand on these critical issues. To make sure voters are getting accurate information, we have posted unedited video voters guides in which several candidates explain their views on Social Security and Medicare in their own words. The voters guide can be found at www.aarp.org/youearnedit If yo u re registered as a Democrat or independent, stay tuned for AARPs voter-education efforts later in the y ear. Our association will focus on helping voters get access to important information on state and Congressional candidates and issues in preparation for primary elections in August and general elections in November.

I woke them all to come sit with me and watch the ball drop, and was usually rewarded with daughter No 1 moaning, Thats nice Mom can we go back to bed now? And mumbled grumblings from daughters No 2 through four concerning the sanity of waking someone up in the middle of the night to watch TV when the waker informs them daily that they watch too much TV. As they will years and life events fly past in a blur of school plays, report cards, (theirs) job transfers and the gaining of a few pounds (Mine). Now Im the Wakee. Mom! You said you would come and celebrate with us! The ball is going to drop in five minutes and we are making raisin toast, do you want yours with cream cheese? When I asked this enthusiastic 12-year-old why we were celebrating with raisin toast, the answer made perfect sense. Partiers sip champagne to celebrate, champagne is made from grapes, and grapes turn into raisins! This champagne cousin makes a wonderful toast, literally. Especially if enjoyed snuggled on the couch with loved ones and hot tea served in the good china. Mo re life changing events for my offspring graduations, coming of age, starting college, two of them living on their own more poundage added to my hips and I have become both the Waker and the W akee. This provided me with the opportunity to to question the mental stability of the Wakers. I answered the giggly midnight call with, What the heck are you doing out on the worst night of the year?! Youre not drinking, are you? Do you really think calling the one person who worries about y ou with each breath is the most mentally balanced thing to do? Yes, I love you, and I thank you from the bottom my heart for thinking about y our mother and raisin bread when y ou could be kissing someone. Can I go back to bed now? The tears that flowed when the doorbell rang and my offspring walked in toting loaves of raisin bread and cream cheese while I was still holding the phone dried quickly as we woke their siblings to join us. Only now it was child No. 5 who was declaring the loss of mental cognizance by the three of us. To this day he still allows he had to eat six pieces of toast because he feared for his health should he refuse. The rest of us allow we feared for his health should he eat the seventh. A word to the wise: Chasing-a-caffeine-and-raisin-filled 6-year-old around the couch to rip a smashed piece of toast from his hand is best not done in a nylon gown and bunny slippers, while laughing hysterically. The New Years Eve that rolled around after several more graduations, a couple of new additions to our little clan, and more than a couple of additional pounds was for me one of the more memorable ones. Due to certain changes involving Power Su r ges, sleepless nights and Empty N est Syndrome I went full circle and am once again the Waker and once ROS ES ROOMROSE PADRICK See ROSES 13 A champagne and cinnamon toast New Year!

12ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOUNG Document your sources in genealogy Youve been researching your family and entering names, dates and other pieces of the puzzle, but have you noted where you obtained this information? Will you remember where you found it, next month, next y ear, or 10 years from now? The answer is a guaranteed No. So, starting today, document everything before you get too far down the road and have to backtrack. This will help your research tremendously in the future, when you need to find that elusive bit of information that will help you climb the inevitable brick wall. It also gives other r esearchers confidence in your work. When I first started researching, I excitedly took down every fact I found. Of course it was correct, it was right there on the official document, in the book at the library, or Grandmother told me. Fortunately, I did get copies of most of the official documents, or can r emember where the tombstone is, but I didnt actually document it in my database. There are still many facts in my database that are not documented properly. It is still one of my major downfalls, getting caught up in the story and not wanting to take the time to document. S ending your genealogy out into the world without citing your sources is sending it out with no validation. Almost invariably, when I find some exciting new fact about my ancestor, there is no source given. This leaves me totally in the dark. Exactly where did this date, spouse name, etc., come from? Someone must have known, but chances are, the person that put the information on the Internet, or in the book, just copied it from someone else, who also copied it from someone. As far as I know, it could have, and might as w ell be, just made up to suit the purpose. Each fact recorded for your ancestor should be documented with the exact location from where it was obtained. A source, regardless of how informal, is where we obtained the information. It may have come from a probate record, family Bible, census record, or from Grandma Bessy. Everything needed for another researcher to find this source, should be included. This leaves a trail for you, as well as others who want to follow your line of descent. Tr aditionally, sources have been classified as primary and secondary. A primary record is one created close to the event, such a birth or marriage r ecord or by a person reasonably knowledgeable about the event. A secondary record is one that was created sometime later. The secondary source is not viewed as being as accur ate as a primary source, since time and distance often dims memories and distorts the facts. So a secondary source should always be backed up with as many other sources as possible, including a primary one when available. All that said, there are no sources that are guaranteed as being correct. Death certificates often contain wrong information, with the informant not knowing the deceased birth date or parents names. Tombstones also frequently contain incorrect information. A relative in our family is actually buried under the wrong name. This makes a strong case for thoroughly r esearching each person and finding as many sources as you can. The more sources you find, the closer you can come to deciding which is the correct data. W ith the tremendous amount of information being put on the web, you must always remember that it is all suspect until you have personally verified that it is correct. Never download someone elses information into y our work until you document it and are satisfied that the preponderance of evidence shows that this data belongs to y our family. Trying to sort out unrelated individuals, much less whole family groups, from your database, is a nightmare. Br enda Knight Smith Tr easure Coast Genealogical Society GENEALOGYB RENDA K.

13ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOU NG again the subject of my mental stability came up in the conversation. B eginning with daughter No. 1 and working my way down I struck gold on my third telephone try. My H appy New Year!! was met with, Mom! I totally understand you are having problems sleeping and y our thermostat is on the fritz, but menopause is not supposed to make me miserable for 10 more years! And then its supposed to be mine! I not so gently reminded her that when she was under the influence of morphine following surgery, she had called me 14 times in six hours complaining the fish in the bathroom we re making to much noise. Sipping tea and chewing toast is almost as good via the modern technology of cell phones as it is in person. I cant think of another person for whom the bumper sticker Please be patient Gods not done with me yet is more appropriate than me, I have been perpetually unfinished for many decades. Evolving and revolving around those that I love and whatever the world hands me is a full-time job for me and Im thoroughly enjoying every moment. Sometimes it is to the consternation of those who take life more seriously than I do. This year Im resolving to not r esolve. I am replacing resolves with wishes. I wish my bathroom scale would take a backward slide. I wish my tongue would freeze in place at certain times. I wish I could remember to buy books on disks so I could r ead them on the way to work B ut most of all I wish you raisin toast, hot tea and hearts full of enough love to enjoy them.

14ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOUNG A man of many interests is never bored Iam a man of many interests and hobbies. Since I was a kid I have been a serious fisherman and I have pursued that hobby all across the United S tates. I have fly fished for brook trout in the rushing streams of the high Rocky M ountains, trolled for salmon and walleye in the Great Lakes, trapped crawfish in the swamps of Louisiana, and caught horned pout in M aine. I have landed bonito in S outhern California and scooped up grunion from the beach. I have caught cutthroat trout in I daho and large mouth bass from the Santee Cooper in South Car olina. With a fly rod I caught small mouth, northern and white bass in the Wolf River west of Green Bay, Wisconsin. Of course, I have caught most of the fish that swim in Florida waters both fresh and salt. I have given fishing my all. F or most of my life I have also been a car guy and have restored many classic autos. I did a 1959 Chevy pick-up, a very rare 1960 F acel Vega, one of only 200 handmade in Paris, France. I had a 1970 Mercedes, a 1977 Lincoln V ersailles, a Chrysler sedan, a 1966 Plymouth Valiant, and a Br icklin gull wing sports car. I did a fabulous 1949 Chrysler W oody Convertible and many more. I loved each and every one of them. I am a lifelong sports fan and chased most of the balls when I was a young man. It was my honor to see Roberto Clemente play in Pittsburghs venerable F orbes Field and I saw Sandy K oufax pitch in Chavez Ravine. I watched Stan Musial play a game against Willie Mays in the original Bush Stadium in St. Louis. As a young man I saw a game between the old Washington S enators and the Philadelphia A thletics in D.C.

15ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOU NG said. W e have energy. We plan what were going to eat. M aybe its a shopping day. We do the best we can to make the right choices. Those choices have paid off. The Zellers have lost a combined 135 pounds and their health has improved. I was a diabetic for 10 years, Mrs. Zeller said. I was taking pills and more pills. I was on insulin for four years. I started eating healthy, counting grams of sugar. Now, with my doctors approval, Im taking no medications. A year ago, the Zellers had the opportunity to attend a live-in counseling opportunity to learn about nutrition and healthy eating. They came back even more enthusiastic and wanting to share what theyd learned. They told their friends Art and Shirley Hensel about what theyd learned. W e left in July to go up north, still eating the regular American diet, Mr. Hensel said. Bob and Mary had talked to us and we read what theyd read. When we we re in our motor home this summer, we started. I didnt think much of a vegetarian diet, but Im sold. In three months, I lost 32 pounds, my blood pressure is normal and I dont take pills. I have to eat crow. I feel so much better and have so much more energy. Its a new lifestyle for me. Ive learned how to r ead labels. The first few weeks, we read labels and cleared out all the junk we had in our house. We had to clean a lot of our cupboards. The Zellers recently began a Healthy Eating club in their community. It meets once a week and they discuss a particular book and what theyve read. They encourage each other, as well. Mary Zeller plans to do a sugar demonstration. W e take a look at how much sugar is in the ingredients of the foods we eat, she said. We take that much sugar and put it in a bowl. Its a visual demonstration to show how much sugar is in the junk food we consume out of habit. B ob and Mary Zeller hope the idea for Healthy Eating clubs spreads to other communities, and eventually across the country. W e re r eally excited about it, he said. Wed like to see it spring up everywhere. The best recommendation came from the Zellers o wn doctor. H e asked us to call his daughter who was battling some health issues, Mr. Zeller said.

16ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOUNG S taci Storms, Linda Bartz, Maria Wells and Linnie Luoma, all in their 50s or 60s, became the Golden Girls and began paddle boarding on weekends. M y daughter-in-law and one of their crew came out and got out the boards, she said. They said OK, ladies, try to stand up. There was wobbling, staggering and a lot of wet. Three of the women became regulars and can now stand up on the boards. I was so proud I was on my feet, Ms. Brown said. I even posted myself on Facebook. Its the very fact that Im doing something other than going home and doing nothing. It makes me feel young and good about myself. Ms. Brown said that being a strong swimmer is not required. I m not a strong swimmer, she said. My exercise before was floating in the pool, reading People magazine. Now Im really doing something I feel good about. You work up a sweat. You dont have to stand. Its an upper body exercise even if you dont stand. Ms. Brown has made paddle boarding a family affair. W e go in at the foot of the Stuart C auseway or at Sunset Bay Marina, she said. My grandson Killian is 5 and he paddles. When we get tired, we play in the sand. Sometimes he rides with me and we sing. Ms. Brown and her friends are all still working, so for now, paddle boarding is on the weekends. In the spring, when the days are longer, she will be able to paddleboard every day. S he thinks its the perfect activity for people of all ages. Age is no obstacle, she said. My grandson is 5 and Im 63. It doesnt slow me down. You dont have to stand up or you can sit down if you get tired. Guys even put chairs on the boards and fish. Its a hoot. While paddle boarding is fun, Ms. Bro wn recognizes other benefits. I get more exercise, she said. Y ou dont even realize youre doing it. I think it makes you younger. Im so glad I found this. I will do it until I die or my arms fall off. Its so much fun.P addleboardingFrom page 4 house and Gail helped out. She took a class at Indian River State College in constriction and stagecraft. I learned how to use saws and drills and power tools, she said. I was the oldest one. I enjoyed it backstage. I was also involved with the Tr easure Coast Opera Society.

17ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOU NG same in Wrigley Field. Always a football fan, I once watched a game between the H ouston Oilers and Boston Patriots before each changed their names. In Chicagos Soldier Field I watched the great Walter Payton score many times and in Tampa I saw the Bucs in their championship season. Once I even saw the legendary El Cor dobes fight a bull in Barcelona S pain. I am a pretty fair amateur historian and some consider me to be an authority on beach racing. From time to time I am called on to speak publicly about some of my hobbies. Somehow, with all of that going on, I found time to run a construction business for 26 years and help Lana, my wife of nearly 38 y ears, raise two great children. WO W! I have really been busy. As most of you have guessed, these days my most rewarding hobby is what I am doing right now writing. Since I was in fifth grade I have been told that I have the ability to spin a pretty good tale on paper. I used that talent to cruise through the English classes while in school, so if some of you detect flaws in my composition it is a r esult of my youthful laziness. In my life I have emptied hundreds of ballpoints and covered reams of paper with words that no one will ever read. Thats OK, for I do it mostly for myself. S ince I have been writing for this newspaper I have met many of you who have been kind enough to tell me that you enjoy what I do. That, to me, is priceless. Hopefully, some of you have discovered through my simple style just how easy it is to write and will consider trying it for y ourself. Writing is good for your psyche. It is a release that can cleanse the mind and perhaps even the soul. Everyone has a story to tell. Maybe it is your own life story or maybe the accomplishments of y our grandchildren. Your subject need not be interesting to the masses. Do it for yourself. I am certain many of you have thought about it. You may have even said to y ourself, I bet I could do what that D an guy does. You know what? You are right. T ake a close look at my columns. N othing complicated, right? I try to write as though I am talking with a friend. I work hard to keep out pretentious words that I would not use in everyday conversation. It seems to work. You need not have a huge vocabulary and if you do you certainly shouldnt hit people over the head with it. Words that are inserted to show off your language skills tend to remind your reader that someone is writing at them; not talking to them. As I said before, I write for myself. I am very fortunate to have my musings published, but if that ended tomorrow I would continue to write. I just like doing it. I encourage you to find something you enjoy doing and do the hell out of it. Who knows you may even find someone who will allow you to do it professionally.
