S he bought a car phone charger and got permission to try it outside in her car. The woman walked back into the store and returned the original packaging with a charger inside. The only problem was the store clerk noticed the charger in the box was of a different brand than the one sold in his store. He demanded she return his charger and pursued her. In the end, she threw it out the car window. When confronted by St uart police, the woman insisted it was a mistake, as she had put the wrong charger in the box. What she couldnt explain when confronted was why she got to her car and frantically called for boyfriend to return, instead of just opening the door getting the right charger and handing it to the clerk,Not understanding her jobA Fort Pierce woman who worked at a business in J ensen Beach may not have understood her job.

They dont want their school to be seen as a place where children come from abuse or neglect, said M ichelle Akins, a former employee of the State D epartment of Children and Family Services.

To claim the money, the person must provide valid photo identification, such as a driver license, and fill out an affidavit for unclaimed monies form. Bu sinesses must submit the claim form on their business letterhead, along with their taxpayer identification number. After it gets turned over to the state, however, the money cant be claimed locally. After the money is sent to the state, its out of our hands and we cant do anything more for them, Ms. Francis said. To claim the money after that point, a claim has to be filed with the state. F or more information, go to the clerk of circuit court website at www.stlucieclerk.com. Ms. Bowman spent her time mentoring local students a few hours a week through a r eading program administered by the Big Brothers Big S isters organization. The mother of boys, she felt she connected better with the male students. Then she met Kristina. The young girl had severe medical issues such as seizures, migraines and difficulty walking as a result of surviving brain cancer. The first day our eyes met there was an immediate connection, Ms. Bowman said. W ithin a year, Ms. Bowman had agreed to be Kristinas Big S ister. I liked De from the very beginning, said Kristina. I love De and she loves me, and I know it will be that way forever. The Big Brothers Big Sisters organization matches adults called Bigs to children ages 6 through 18 called Littles. The Big works with the Littles to develop a positive relationship. In S t. Lucie County, the organization is funded by the Childrens Services Council. Last year, we were able to serve 1,637 children in St. L ucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties, said Judi M iller, CEO of Big Brothers B ig Sisters. (Ms. Bowman) always leads by example, and has participated in other facets of the agency, such as speaking at events and re cruiting volunteers. While Ms. Bowman considers the recent award an honor, she feels her time spent with Kristina as a blessing. I have seen Kristina grow from a shy little girl into a confident, smart young woman, she said. She plays volleyball, shes a cheerleader and excels academically. Shes a real hero in every sense of the word. While mentors share their gift of time and caring, the Littles make an impact as w ell, Ms. Miler said. S hes a part of my family, said Ms. Bowman. Ill be at her high school graduation, her college graduation and her wedding. I cant imagine my life without her, and Im so grateful for that.

In about 90 days, a variety of plants will be ready for harvesting. Growing in the garden will be tomatoes, onions, squash, zuchinni, pigeon peas and collard greens. The project began when the Rev. Robert Coleman of Goodwill Presbyterian Church spoke about starting a community garden. He started a similar garden at Lincoln Park Academy. F irst we grew periwinkles, he said. Now the garden grows onions, tomatoes and okra. Part of the food goes to the LPA Center. Mr. Coleman is working with the Rev. Jonathan Weeks of St. Simons Episcopal Church to help bring the garden to life. This morning, he was moving through the garden, showing the volunteers how to space the buckets. This is going to grow, its going to work and its going to help feed the families, he said. Local businesses and government agencies were also on hand helping set up the garden. Na tures Keeper, a FortPierce based business, donated soil, mats and pots. The community gives back to Natures Keeper, said Stewart Feketa, vice president. Mr. Feketa said the owner and founder, Mike W est, believes you reap what y ou sow. W e believe in giving back to the community. We heard about this, and offered our services. Also offering their services we re S tefanie Myers and R enee Scott with St. Lucie C ounty Community Services. Part of the Treasure C oast Community Action Agency used community service block grant dollars to purchase materials for the garden. This is the first step to put fresh fruits and vegetables in the food box, said Ms. My ers. The challenge is that people know how to eat or prepare the fresh food. The next step after the food is picked is to teach people how to prepare and eat it. W e have some fruit and vegetables that we give to people, but they give them back because they dont know how to prepare them, Ms. Malinowski said. This way, we can show them how to cook the food to benefit their family. The final step to the community garden is to teach people how to grow their o wn food, starting with buckets of their own. W e want to work with people to build their own community gardens, said Ms. Myers. To keep the garden sustainable, the ministry is looking for donations of shade cloth, 5-gallon buckets with lids, compost and a compost bin, an irrigation system, a shade structure and volunteers to water and weed the plants. M ustard Seed Ministries is located at 3130 S.U.S.1 in Fo rt Pierce.For more information about volunteering, call (772) 465-6021.For more information about starting a community garden,call Ms. M yers at (772) 462-1777.

S heriff Mascara announced the results of O peration Crackdown, which was in response to that resurgence, he said. D eputies arrested 55 individuals, with the majority being drug dealers well known to investigators, the sheriff said. Ad ditionally, authorities are still looking for 13 other suspects, he said. As the arrests occurred following the two-month operation, people in the community thanked deputies for making their neighborhoods safer, the sheriff said. S ome people may see drug crime as victimless crime, he said. I disagree. Dr ug activity destroys lives, degrades the community and threatens the safety of people who live in areas where drug activity takes, place, he said. The primary purpose of the operation was to reduce the availability of crack cocaine in St. Lucie County, he said. A secondary goal is to gather criminal intelligence from arrestees in an attempt to work our way up the chain in an attempt to eliminate the larger drug traffickers. S heriff Mascara speculated the resurgence of cocaine may be a result of changes in laws that make it more difficult for people to get prescription drugs. The operation targeted the northwest part of St. L ucie County. M any of those arrested have extensive criminal r ecords, he said. It s fr ustrating, he said, that people are still out committing crimes after having been arrested many times previously. S ome of the most notable arrests included: Roger Alcott, 35, who was charged with sale/delivery of marijuana, has previously been arrested 10 times and convicted seven times on charges that included murder, robbery, illegal weapon possession and cocaine offenses. McKinley Parker, 47, who was charged with sale/delivery of cocaine and possession of cocaine, has been arrested previously 29 times and convicted nine times, including on drug charges involving marijuana and cocaine possession. Reginald Grant, 49, who was charged with sale/delivery of cocaine and possession of cocaine, has previously been arrested 23 times and been convicted 16 times, many of them involving cocaine. Those still being sought are: Dymonic Aiken, 21, on charges of sale of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school and possession of cocaine. Joshua Deontae Anthony, 29, on charges including two counts of sale of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a designated area and two counts of possession of cocaine. Darrell Thomas Brunson, 50, on charges of sale of cocaine, possession of cocaine and sale of oxycodone. Jordon A. Ewing, 17, on charges of possession of marijuana and sale of marijuana. Willie Fulton, 46, on charges including two counts of sale of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a church and two counts of possession of cocaine Cornealius Grant, 27, on charges of possession of cocaine and sale of cocaine. Bernarda Kee-Shae K ing, 19, on charges of sale of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a church and possession of cocaine.

Cops bullying citizens would be a good place to start. Ev en though Tom Rooneys district has been dramatically changed by redistricting, we are fortunate that he will be able to remain in Congress. He has consistently represented common sense in the form of smaller and more responsible government, a prosperous economy and perhaps most important, muchneeded private-sector jobs. Anything he can do to help get Florida moving forward again would help people with homes under water.Deadbeat dads should payIt is destructive that our legal system has the tools but is not using them effectively. If a deadbeat dad is caught he should pay the consequences. Among the guilty in the legal system are state attorneys, judges, hearing officers, child support enforcement employees and lawyers. We have the laws in place. Lets insist on prompt and vigorous enforcement.P ostal service demiseOne of the reasons the postal department is going broke is because they have high rates for us regular people and very low rates for the people who send out junk mail. I received three junk-mail envelopes today and all paid only 19 cents and I pay 45 cents.Check your childs social sitesPar ents need to monitor your childs Facebook, Twitter, I nstagram and any other social accounts they have. Some of your children are not who you think they are. I can tell you from reading my daughters wall that your student of the year is not the character of the year. Some of y our children are really nasty and mean. P lease take a moment to look at your childs pages. Look in their inboxes at the conversations they have and read what they post on others walls. Some of you may be shocked! Some of you may be pleasantly surprised. T ake the time and do it now before another student gets hurt. I am begging you, this time it was my daughter who got hurt, next time it could be yours.Europe?What do people mean when they say, Dont follow Eur ope? Thats the whole point! We are already part of Eur ope. What do you think the word global means? Ev erything talked about today is global. I cant believe so many people dont get it. Pr ograms and documentaries (even PBS) showing documentaries about how wonderful it is to visit China, Vietnam, Guam and even Moscow. With arms outstretched, w elcome to China. Obama pushing for less-strict laws letting other countries visit Florida! For me, I dont think so! Is n t it enough China is shipping bugs (ticks) into our ports literally killing people and destroying elm trees in M assachusetts? How many of you hear gravel-voiced Henry Kissinger quote, Its time for a new world order? Thats global. One world order,one world system. one currency (eventually), one leader. Its here. Like the Three M usketeers, all for one and one for all, which, in the global game, is pure and simple communism. What happens to one country happens to the rest. Who doesnt get this yet?W estern suicide?S ome years ago there was a book about the suicide of the w est. C uts in the size of our defense budget may make the books dire predictions come true. At a time when the U.S. faces serious threats from Iran, a near civil war in Syria, a shooting war in Afghanistan and a w eird, unpredictable dictator in North Korea, any reductions in our preparedness are unthinkable. The administrations budget, 12.2 percent down from the level the Pentagon requested last year, is unthinkable. It could mean the suicide of the West. Got something to say?

When it comes to sending attachments through email, most people have one thing in mind: pictures. B ut sending other file types through email can be one of the most massively useful abilities the Internet offers. Picture this: youre working on a file at the office, and its a Word or Ex cel document. A colleague in another part of town or another office needs to see the file. Many people will take the time to print out and physically deliver or fax the document to their colleague, not r ealizing the email system can be used to deliver any kind of file right to another computer. A ttach the file in an email message to your colleague, just as you would if you we re sending a picture. As long as your colleague has the same software that you used to create it, he or she should be able to save it to his or her hard drive or open it just like any other file. Then your colleague can print the document, if he or she wants, or handle it as needed. It is, however, the senders responsibility to make sure the recipients will be able to open the file before it is sent. Nothing is more frustrating than getting an email message marked Heres the file you wanted only to find that the file is in some format that youve never heard of and your computer cant open it. F or instance, if youre planning to send a Word document, find out what word processor the recipient uses. Even if he is also using Word, he may be using an older version of Wo rd than you are, which could cause a problem if he tries to open a file that was created in a newer version. A quick peek in the help pull-down menu and clicking on the about option will tell you what version your word processor is. Ha ve your friend or coworker check his version also, and then try to save y our document in whatever version he is using. If you click save as and look at the file type or format pull-down menu on the save as box that pops up, yo u ll see you have the ability to save your document in many different formats. This puts the control of the file type in y our hands. The same thing applies when you are trying to send a picture. Make sure its a file that is saved in a format that your intended recipient can open. Usually a .jpg (jpeg) is a safe bet. M ost peoples familiarity with email attachments ends with the occasional picture, but once the idea of transferring files that way becomes clear, a lot of possibilities present themselves. He re are the steps for sending a file: F irst, you need to know where the file you want to send is located on your computer, and exactly what its called. So, if you have a document you want to send, save it and pay attention to the file name and the name of the folder that its saved in. Then, when you have y our e-mail program open, click new message and begin to compose your message. Enter the recipients e-mail address, a comment in the subject field and then click the attach button (which is usually represented by a paperclip icon). N ext, your computer will give you some options. You want to indicate to the computer that you are attaching a file to. Click the appropriate button and then navigate to the location on your hard drive where the file that you want to send resides. (Look in the same folder where you saved it in, and then click on the name of the file to select it). Click OK, and the file name will be listed as an attachment. Y ou can even send multiple files by repeating the procedure.

Ms K av anagh, 69, of Po rt S t. L ucie is the executive vice pr esident of T r easur e C oast B uilders Association. S he is r eappointed for a ter m beginning J an. 26, ending J an. 9, 2015. The appointment is subject to confir mation b y the F lor ida S enate the G uar dian ad Litem pr ogr am, which pr o vides advocated for childr en who ar e victims of abuse and neglect. G uar dians for N ew F utur es decided to hold the tr aining sessions in the wake of a number of child abuse cases that have been publiciz ed locally The aim was to incr ease awar eness of and r epor ting possible child abuse Ms Akins has dealt with childr en as an emplo y ee of the D epar tment of Childr en and F amily S er vices for 21 y ears and curr ently as quality assur ance coor dinator for the state Child A buse D eath R eview T eam. S he said the law mandates ever y one to r epor t suspected child abuse B ut those in cer tain categor ies such as teachers law enfor cement officers judges health car e wor kers and social wor kers must pr o vide their identity when r epor ting a case to the state child abuse hotline H o w ever the identity of that person is not disclosed to others unless they give consent, she said. Ther e have been cases wher e people w er e char ged with failur e to r epor t child abuse she said. Ms Akins said she personally became awar e of a situation wher e teachers w er e being discour aged fr om r epor ting child abuse That changed after she pr o vided administr ators with infor mation about state law she said. The need for mor e r epor ting is evident in F lor ida, a state that r anks eighth in the number of child deaths associated with neglect and abuse she said. Only O klahoma, W est V irginia, G eor gia, T exas M issour i, O hio and K entucky r anked abo ve F lor ida. T eachers who suspect child abuse shouldn t immediately infor m par ents of the concer n, she said. That can lead to the family fleeing or par ents coaching their childr en on what to say to investigators Ms Akins said. B ut investigators have to be car eful when inter viewing childr en. Y ou can never use leading questions she said. That can r esult in a child saying what they believe the inter view er wants to hear she said. S igns that a child is being abused ar en t always ob vious she said. A busers lear n not to leave signs wher e y ou can see them, she said. A victim of abuse might sho w fear of family members be war y of adults have a poor self-image be withdr awn, avoid physical touch and have a fear of home she said. Childr en who ar e victims of sexual abuse may have inappr opr iate sexual kno wledge lo w self-wor th, sleep pr oblems and a dr op in gr ades she said. They also may miss school, be pr omiscuous r un away fr om home and engage in pr ostitution, she added.

S he was observed taking merchandise, voiding it and then handing it to customers who had not paid for it. It might be a nice gesture, but perhaps she didnt consider the economics of it. The business gets money to pay her salary by selling those items. If the business collects no money, she ends up without a job.L eaving evidence behindA Fort Pierce man was r ather startled when he arrived home and found a female in his house. She fled and he discovered she had taken $150, a paycheck for $228 and other items. The man didnt know the woman, but he discovered she left a Metro PCS cell phone behind. An officer took the cell phone to a Metro PCS business and learned the identity of the owner. As it turned out, the woman had been in the store shortly before he arrived. She bought a new phone. When confronted later, the woman denied everything, but changed her story after being told she had left her cell phone there. The woman has an extensive criminal record dating back to 1994, when she was charged with burglary. It would seem that after being a criminal for more than 17 years she would know not to leave a cell phone at a residence she burglarized.Community consignment event taking place March 16-18 F or Hometown News newsfp@hometownnewsol.comBlotterF rom page A1 KNOWLEDGEISATERRIBLETHING TOW ASTE... www.hometownnewsol.comSubscribe Today!

Central Park Plaza Port St. Lucie,FL 34986(772) 336-8111kellysanimalhospital.com Addisons Diseaseby Patrick Kelly, DVMAddisons disease, also known as h ypoadrenocorticism, is a condition where the adrenal gland does not produce adequate levels of hormones needed to balance metabolic functions.The adrenal gland produces two types of hormones Corticosteroids are hormones that allow us to handle stress, the flight or flight syndrome.They control glucose and fat which are the main sources of energy that allow us to cope with stress factors. Mineralocorticoids are hormones that control electrolyte balance.This in turn affects kidney function.The cause of Addisons disease is rarely found, but it typically affects younger patients, typically 4-5 years of age and it affects f emales twice as often as males.This disease affects dogs, and ve ry r arely, cats.Clinical signs can range from no signs, to an acute crisis where the patient is presented comatose.The first signs an owner might notice is a dog that is consuming more w ater and urinating more.As the disease progresses, lethargy, inappetance, vomiting and cardiac signs develop as the potassium levels rise. Diagnosis is made based on clinical signs, urinalysis, and b loodwork.The classic Addisonian has an elevated potassium and a decreased sodium.The ratio of sodium to potassium usually drops below 25.Kidney values will begin to elevate as the disease progresses.Not all Addisonian patients fit this classic presentation and the clinician must be open to the possibility of Addisosns disease in a young dog that presents with unexplained signs of kidney disease even with normal electrolyte levels.Confirmation of the disease is made with a blood test called an ACTH Stimulation test.ACTH (adreno corticotropic hormone) is a hormone produced in the pituitary gland in the brain that stimulates the adrenal gland to secrete corticosteroids and mineralocorticoid hormones.Addisonian patients have low corticosteroid levels and do not stimulate post acth administration. T reatment is usually very successful.A patient in crisis is given intravenous fluids with sodium chloride, and corticosteroids. Mineralocoricoid supplementation is begun and can be accomplished with an oral medication called Florinef, or an every 28 day injection called Percortin.Dogs tend to do better with the injection.Care must be taken with future stresses such as surgery, and low dose oral steroid supplementation may be needed for life. Dogs can live normal happy, productive lives with Addisons disease as long as they are managed appropriately.The most f amous human that had Addisons disease was President John F.

I r eceived an email from a reader attacking my suggestions r egarding sell by and use by dates found on food products. I suggested you can use products past these dates. A ccording to the FDA they have nothing to do with dates, they are added by the manufacturer. Outside of baby formula and some forms of poultry, the FDA has nothing to do with it. Using a product just past the dates and handling it properly, they said, it is hardly likely to do you harm, except for boxed products, such as baking mixes, which must not be used past these dates. Good refrigeration, clean surfaces and hand washing must be observed. Dates are an indicator of quality rather than safety. Once a perishable product is frozen it doesnt matter if the date expires because foods kept frozen continuously are safe for long periods of time. If a product smells and looks good it is hardly likely to cause harm. I have been doing this for years and never had a problem. My suggestion is when in doubt, throw it out, it is your choice. F ebruary is Black History M onth, and before the month is gone, I must share some delicious recipes. When I previously wrote a r ecipe for black-eyed peas, I r eceived an email from a r eader with her family story and recipe. Sylvias Florida heritage goes back for generations, before Florida became a state. Although not black, her recipe is truly Celebrate Black History Month ROMANCING THE STOVEwith the Grammy Guru ARLENE BORG See GRAMMY, B3Out &about SPECIALEVENTS FRIDAY, FEB. 24SUNDAY, MARCH 4 St. Lucie County Fair will run for 10 action packed days and nights with national concerts, livestock shows, midway rides and the very best in entertainment, with acts performing every day.

B ut I felt I had truly stumbled into a resort as I settled into a comfortable chair. And comfortable was what owner Stephen Schenk was going for when he first opened the bistro in M ay 2010. The location is a challenge. You have to know its here, he said. But once y ou find us, you realize we have a very casual, laidback atmosphere. The bistro has quite a following, with Mr. Schenk sending out specials to diners by special email. W e offer special parties each month, and we change our specials constantly, he said. He said the bistro is mostly a lunch destination, with dinner being offered twice a w eek. One thing I noticed was the prices are very reasonable. I v e tried to keep it affordable so people get the atmosphere for a reasonable price, he said. Looking over the menu, I could see myself coming here for a variety of reasons, all of them sounding delicious. Its obvious at a glance the chef brings his skills to every dish. While the menu offered a wide selection ranging from sandwiches to chicken wings, the bistro has become well known for its burgers and salads. H amburgers are created using Angus beef, and are for those looking for more than just the basics. One burger, called the sofrito queso, is served with avocado, onion, cilantro, salsa, queso cheese and fajita seasoning. The day I visited, I was feeling more like a salad, and Mimis Bistro offers a fantastic selection of unique salads to choose from. I chose the chicken schnitzel salad, made up of panko-breaded herb chick-Local fighter to participate in cage matchBig names, big shows coming to SunrisePORT ST.

I discovered the chef created his own dressing for this salad, and it was just an example of the detail placed into every dish. E verything here is fresh, and made here, said Mr. Schenk. When my salad arrived, I was glad I had skipped breakfast that morning. The generous presentation looked amazing. The panko crumbs added a lightness to the chicken that complimented the crisp salad, and the combinations of all the flavors blended beautifully. The apples and almonds added a nice crunch. What made the presentation more unique was that the chicken was served at the bottom of the salad. Mr. Schenk explained that was for the flavors of the salad to lightly coat the chicken without losing its crunch. No knife was needed though, I easily cut the tender chicken with my fork. The dressing was served on the side, and added a deeper level of flavor to the salad. The addition of the herbs gave it a slightly sweet, slightly acidic flavor, which blended well with the fruit and the cheese in the salad. By the end of the meal, I had to resist licking my fork. If thats what lunch holds in store, I can hardly wait to come back and try dinner. W ednesday night the bistro offers a made-toorder pasta bar and holds a trivia contest.

LUCIE COUNTY Whips will be cracking and horses will be prancing as the Florida Cracker Trail Riders, nearly 170 strong, not including horses, mules and wagons, will parade on horseback through downtown Fort Pierce on Feb. 25 at approximately 10:30 a.m. The parade celebrates the end of the 25th annual 120mile trail ride commemorating Floridas settlers and their rugged cattle raising heritage. The parade begins on N. Se cond Street and Seaway Dr ive and travels south to Orange Avenue, through the farmers market and ends at C obbs Landing by the traffic r oundabout on North Indian River Drive. F ollowing the Civil War, a r ugged bunch of individuals settled along Floridas east coast and central flatlands. They scratched out a living r aising cattle, pigs, vegetables and fishing. These early settlers became known as Florida Cr ackers; a reference to the cracking sound made by the braided, leather whips they used to drive their cattle, r ather than a food preference or a particular philosophy. The leather-tough pioneers, known as Cracker Co wmen, from up and down the east coast and throughout central Florida, gathered with their scrub cattle each y ear, congregating west of Fo rt Pierce to drive their giant herd across the state to P unta Rosa, near todays S anibel. The passageway between Fort Pierce and P unta Rosa was the only dry trans-Florida passageway. Fo rt Pierces historic P.P. C obb Store figured prominently in the cattle drive. Each day, as the cattle massed west of town, Cobbs store ran 10 wagons, day and night, taking supplies out to the cattlemen and their herds as they prepared for the month-long journey. As they crossed the state, they were faced with untold hardship; thieves, snakes, swarms of mosquitoes, swamps and disease were just some of the challenges faced by the cowmen. F ollowing the Cracker Tr ail parade, the public is invited to join the riders to learn more about Florida history and this historic event by meeting the trail r iders and learning about local history and the Florida Cr acker Trail Association. O pportunities for children to get their pictures taken aboard a horse or mule will be available. Of course, carr ots and apple slices are always appreciated. The Florida Cracker Trail Association is a nonprofit association dedicated to preserving the unique history of Florida through the r eenactment of this historic r ide and other educational activities.

S antana, who threw 25 pitches to catcher Josh Thole in that session, said it felt great to get back to throwing on the mound. I finally had a chance to get on the mound and throw to a catcher, to Thole, and I felt really good, Santana said. The approach that we had from the beginning was to do everything like I always do to get ready for the season. For me, its about time to get on the mound and start throwing. And I was able to throw all of my pitches and it felt good after that. S antana said his arm and mechanics are getting back to where they we re before his injury. When I was hurt, I wasnt able to finish and my mechanics were totally different, he said. Now, Im getting back to what I used to be and thats what Im looking for. Being able to get that delivery with no problems and let the ball do everything. Im not trying to push it or muscle it or anything, just let the ball go and build up from there. M ets manager Terry C ollins was pleased with S antanas session, calling it a huge first step. C ollins expects Santana to participate fully in drills with pitchers once spring training begins. As we sit here today the answer to that is y es, Collins said. Ob viously, we have to make an adjustment on a daily basis, as we did last year with (former M ets outfielder) Carlos (Beltran). But you saw the smile on his face. You dont think hes happy with whats going on? Its a huge step for us. Its a big day for him. Now its just gradually moving forward and building him up. B ut Santana is up for the challenge. I m not afraid of anything, he said. Im actually excited about being out on the mound and being able to start competing.PitcherF rom page B6 Finz Waterfront Grille, 4290 S.E. Salerno Road, Port Salerno, (772) 283-1929.

2ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG A taxing subject There are several memorable lines from Gone with the Wind, but one of my favorites is Death, taxes and childbirth! Theres never any convenient time for any of them. That is true, but at this time of year, while we may avoid death and childbirth, taxes are with us. This months F orever Young theme is financial and tax planning. Its a subject that makes a lot of us nervous. To ease some of the panic, the issue contains interviews with financial advisers and certified public accountants who have tips on how to plan for r etirement and have the type of r etirement youve dreamed of. My father, Alfred Koppel, of Stuart, is 93. He has been a CPA for nearly 70 y ears and still has a client or two. In fact, he went to the IRS office in Port S t. Lucie a few months ago for a client audit. He has seen a lot of changes in the industry and the practice of accounting in the days before computers and tax programs. B efore I got certified, I worked as an assistant bookkeeper, he said. I decided I might as well get a job as an accountant. I had two introductory courses under my belt. I answered a few questions and got a job as an accountant. In those days, you had to have a college degree and a years experience before you could complete all four parts of the CPA exam, which included theory, law, auditing, and problems. D ad wanted to start his own practice, but didnt know where to begin.

4ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Planning key to comfortable retirement FORT PIERCE David Pittinos is a Certified Financial Pl anner with PCC Financial Advisers, a division of Pr octor, Crook, Crowder & Fogal. The first thing he tells his clients do to when they begin to plan for retirement is to get a copy of The Total Money Makeover, by Dave R amsey. I t s a great blueprint on finances and getting and keeping control of them, he said. The next step in the process is to have a budget. Y ou need to know where your expenses go and where you can make cuts, Mr. Pittinos said. Get annual bids on homeowners and auto insurance to make sure youre getting the best deal. The adviser said that paying down credit card and automobile debt more rapidly is another important way to get control of your finances. If you have a 401 (k) through your employer, its important to maximize contributions and take advantage of matching programs. If your employer doesnt have a plan, set up an IRA. The emphasis is on reducing debt and saving. P eople get a windfall, like an inheritance or a bonus, Mr. Pittinos said. Its important not to spend it. Save it, invest it or use it to pay down debt.

5ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Carver brings life to wood FORT PIERCE In Joe Millers woodcarving studio in Fort Pierce, there is a picture of Johnny Depp, holding a walking stick made by Mr. Miller. The picture is inscribed by the actor, thanking Mr. Miller for the amazing stick and saying he made good use of it in the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie. In addition to woodcarving, Mr. M iller belongs to an RV club, the Go Go Angels. In that club is his good friend, J ohn Depp, father of the swashbuckling pirate. Mr. Miller made John Depp a walking stick and Mr. Depp asked the carver to make one for his son. Mr. Miller doesnt know if Johnny D epp used it in the movie or was just being kind in accepting the gift, but he is proud that the actor has one of his works. The Long Island native retired from the railroad in 1999 and moved to Florida. A bridge inspector, he had worked with wood and sketching throughout his career, but he hadnt found his calling. I came here and didnt have a hobby, he said. I tried golf, but I didnt like it. I tried fishing, and liked it, but when I got a taste of wood carving, that was it. I live it, I love it and I love to share it. Mr. Millers introduction to woodcarving came on an RV trip to Yosemite N ational Park in California. A man named Knotty Old Man was carving and Mr. Miller asked him how to begin carving faces on the walking sticks he collected H e said, Get a sharp knife, get a mirr or and carve, Mr. Miller said. When Mr. Miller returned to Florida, he found a carving club in Port St. Lucie. After several years of taking classes and practicing, he began offering beginners By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor See CARVER, Page 12 Photo courtesy of Joe MillerJoe Miller and his student, Danny are keen wood carvers. 681126

We had pledged to each other that we could make the planet a better place by avoiding the 9-to-5 rat r ace that had ensnared our hapless parents. We vowed that the pursuit of the almighty dollar would never be a part of our future. N ot us. We would spend our time hanging out with friends, smoking Mother Na ture and listening to cool music. It was all to be so idyllic and pastoral. O ur very own take on living the good life. Then it happened. Z AP! R eality hit like a lightning bolt. C ollege money dried up and our parents cut us loose. We had no choice but to take our two years of P oly-Sci or our philosophy degree out into the workplace and try to turn them into cash. It proved to be very difficult. Y et, when we did go to work, we excelled like none before us. The post war generation authored an explosion of new and exciting ideas that carry us till this day. Technology would be our gift to the world. While we were doing that, however, we ignored one basic fact: Our country was built on hard work. The kids who went to San Francisco with flowers in their hair had no interest in doing the mundane labor that carries this great nation. Ours was a larger, more ethereal (and less physically demanding) calling. At least that was how we perceived it. As for me, I found out that once I married my little hippy girlfriend a whole lot of responsibility was part of the deal. When the kids came along forget about it I had no choice but to immerse myself in the work that would provide the cash to sustain us. It was amazing how fast my ideals began to conform. My peace sign quickly turned into a Mercedes emblem. In my younger days I had searched for the perfect high, but now my goal was the perfect mutual fund. The horror! The changes were insidious. As the years passed I didnt even r ealize that my interest in the Rolling S tones had been replaced by my worry over kidney stones. I had started out protesting against the man and now I was the man. R unning a business, raising children, paying a mortgage and fretting about my federal income taxes. When I looked into the mirror I could no longer see the long-haired kid who lounged away his days playing harmonica in the park at Haight Ashbury. Back then I had been concerned about mans injustice to man, but now my problems were personal. I had gone from scoring killer weed to buying weed killer. I nstead of growing pot I was growing a pot belly.6ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Even hippies gotta worry about money eventually LAND LINESD AN SMITH See JUMP, Page 10 010291

FORT PIERCE When youre getting r eady to retire, you dont want any surprises. Thats why Chris Fogal, a certified public accountant and shareholder with Proctor, Crook, Crowder & Fogal, counsels his clients to prepare for that time well in advance. O ne of the biggest traps people fall into between 50 and Medicare is medical insurance, he said. When they leave employment, either voluntarily or involuntarily, theres a void in coverage. It s very costly and it catches many people by surprise. F or many people past 50, their health is not what it was when they were 30, and that may make it difficult to be insured. The presidents plan could change that, but we dont know what it will be. The cost of providing for health insurance is one expense many people dont anticipate. What Im finding is that people who thought they were OK find that health insurance can be as much as a mortgage payment, he said. Theres the loss of income and the increased cost of insurance as youre no longer part of a group. B efore they make life-changing decisions, people need to have a plan for health insurance or be aware of the costs. A key step for people approaching r etirement is to quite literally get your house in order. A person is better off having the house paid for and taking the standard deduction, Mr. Fogal said. The more people can move to reduce debt around them, the better off theyll be. Mr. Fogal sees clients whose expectations for retirement are not realistic. P eople think they will be fine, but they are not putting money aside and they are using credit cards unwisely. I have longtime clients who have been r etired for years who are looking for a job. Thats not what should be happening. Y ou need a good, solid plan. When a person decides to build a house, there is a tremendous amount of planning, from the foundation to the roof. Why should your retirement (planning) not be the same thing? Mr. Fogal approaches each case individually. P eople need to understand that everyones circumstances are different, he said. When you hear t his is what you should do, you need to listen to y our own professional and not to the neighbor. The situations are generally different.

8ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Youve been researching your family and entering names, dates and other pieces of the puzzle, but have you noted where y ou obtained this information? W ill you remember where you found it, next month, year, or 10 y ears from now? The answer is a guaranteed NO. So starting today, document everything before you get to far down the road and have to backtrack.. This will help your research tremendously in the future, when y ou need to find that elusive bit of information that will help you climb the inevitable brick wall. It also gives other researchers 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. For tunately, I did get copies of most of the official documents, or can remember 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 v alidation. 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 exactly 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 B eth. 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, by a person r easonably knowledgeable about the event. A secondary record is one that was created sometime later. The secondary source is not viewed as being as accurate 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 possible. All that said, there are no sources that are guaranteed as being corr ect. Death certificates often contain wrong information, with the informant not knowing the deceased birth date or parents names. T ombstones also frequently contain incorrect information. A r elative in our family is actually buried under the wrong name. Document your sources in tracing your roots GENEALOGYB RENDA K.

9ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG go into business, he said. I went from one job to another. I would pick up an account from someone I knew and eventually got a part-time job and had private clients. One of his first clients was a Russian migr. H e had a small shop making cartridges for the Army during the war. We liked each other and one day I got a call from him. He wanted to build houses on post-World War II Long I sland because the construction of the Whitestone Bridge made it easier to get there. He wanted me to be his accountant. Fr om then on, my father built a practice on Long Island, made up of an interesting mix of Europeans and Americans. There was even a Russian princess. My father worked from home at a time when most of my friends fathers traveled into The City on the Long Island Railroad every day. A ccounting, he said, was very different. When you prepared a tax return in those days, there might be 100 calculations to finish. If there was one mistake, you had to do the whole thing ov er because every calculation changed. It was all done with a pencil, a good eraser, a song and a prayer. A tax return took one to two hours, but if you had to redo it, it took you four. My mother checked the math, going over each calculation. There were so many that you were bound to make a mistake, my father said. Even the calculators were primitive and it was easy to make a mistake. Most of the time, I did it without a calculator. When I first started, I added every long column by hand. Y ou never knew if you picked up the r ight numbers. Sometimes you had to do it over three or four times. It was a lot of extra hard, dirty work. My father noted that both the tax code and audits have become much more complicated. Theres no question the tax code has become more complex, he said. I m not sure if it would have become so complex without computers and calculators because it wouldnt be possible to do it. As computations have become easier to make, the tax codes have become more complicated. T ax audits have also become more complicated. Y ears ago, it was a relaxed situation, he said. The IRS agent came, he knew his stuff and was able to do the job. He would come in, relax, put his briefcase down, work, wed go out to lunch, have a cocktail, come back and finish. He came up with the tax and it was all done that way. The average return did not take very long. I t slowly became more difficult to get an audit done in a short period. The agent has audit procedures and he has to check off everything before he gets finished. They can make no decisions on their own. Theyre not allowed to go out to lunch, but it takes a day or two instead of three to four hours to come up with the same amount of tax. At the end of the interview with my father, my mother, Lillian, got on the phone and told a story that seemed to encapsulate how different things are today. My fathers first cousin, also named Alfred, was also preparing to become a CPA. He was doing his year of work experience to qualify and the firm was not paying him because they knew they had a captive audience. He finally asked for subway fare, then 5 cents each way. The firm fired him. S helley Koppel is an associate news editor of Forever Young.You can r eacher her at S helleyKoppel@comcast.net.T axingFrom page 2 018321 681119

10ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG W ith my kids wanting to attend college I had to cut corners. The guy who wanted to change the world was r educed to hunting down the best early bird special. Most of the time I r emained optimistic that my financial situation would change for the better and I would soon be back on my feet. In r eality, if I didnt come up with a car payment I would be on my feet soon enough. As tight as money was I remember how shot down I was when the girl at M cDonalds gave me a senior discount on a cup of coffee. Me? A senior? I had to bite my tongue to keep from telling her where to put that discount. I was only 55. Still, once I calmed down, I had to admit that my dreams of a smooth-running BMW had now become dreams of a smooth-running BM. Now when I heard the name Grateful Dead, an image of Dr. Kevorkian would pop into my mind. It was just awful. Now, as a semi-retired individual, I am happy to receive a check from the same government that I once wanted to overthrow. My savings receive almost no interest, and I pay for M edicare that will probably not even be there when I need it. Instead of acid I need an antacid. My K-E-G is now an E-K-G. B ut you know, life these days is pretty good. My beautiful hippie wife Lana is still with me and we raised two great kids. We are OK financially and I have plenty of time to reflect on the journey that I traveled. Becoming my parents was not nearly as traumatic as I once believed. Somewhere deep inside I know that if I had to, I could still spend my days in the park living off Ramen Noodles and peanut butter. I just hope that all of my brothers and sisters survived the trip as well as I did. LandlinesFrom page 6 ing professional advice because the cost. Ask attorneys or bankers to recommend an adviser, he said. You want to find a financial adviser that is independent. This way they can maintain their objectivity by offering a vast array of non-proprietary services and solutions that meet the unique needs of their clients. I believe that independence and objectivity are paramount values for the financial services professional. It s critical for retirement planning. One of Mr. Fogals passions is eldercare and he has spoken to groups of CPAs about the special needs of an aging population. (Suppose) you have a lady who seems to be in great shape and she always prepares her documents for y ou, he said. The next year, everything is messy. You know there is a problem.

He suggests that clients go to the Social Security w ebsite www.ssa.gov. to access the benefit calculator and get an idea of what you will receive. As you go into your 60s, you can take it out at different times, he said. If yo u re in good health and your family has a history of longevity, wait and let the benefits build up. The longer you wait, the higher the benefits. Its roughly 8 percent higher each year. Mr. Pittinos said that its important to ask yourself how you envision retirement.

Make sure you like each other and are compatible. Get credentials and make sure theyre welltrained.

By 2007, so many men and women we re interested that they rented a r oom at the Moose club in Vero Beach to hold meetings of the Indian River W oodcarvers Club. Today, it has close to 100 members and about 45 attend every Thursday to practice their craft. In 2010, Mr. Miller wanted to get more involved in teaching. He joined other artists in Art Mundo on Orange Av enue. The space has some 40 artists who display their work. N ow I have a studio to show my work and teach, he said. Among his students is Mike DeBenedetto, who has been studying for six weeks. I wanted to do it since I was a kid, he said. That was 70 years ago. I never could find a place. When Im doing it, I cant think about anything else. Its r elaxation. Another student is Danny Bell, a 16y ear-old with a lot of talent. H e is blessed, Mr. Miller said. He can carve anything. Hes won awards and has a great imagination. The club members love him. I have high hopes for him. I told him that eventually he can become my partner. One of the most important projects for the group is the Purple Heart Program. W e make canes for Purple Heart vets, Mr. Miller said. All vets are important, but we have to limit it. When we get six to 10 canes completed, we have a ceremony, with a color guard and refreshments. M aking these special canes is a labor of love. They give us a copy of their discharge papers ands we are able to go online and get information about where they served and their medals. We put it on a special paper and print it. It comes out on the cane. They get a certificate signed by the carver that states how proud we are of them. It can be used or displayed. It brings tears to some of their eyes. The group has also decorated a Christmas tree with hand-carved ornaments and raffled it off for chariot. Right now, they are carving 13 trophies to donate to an environmental group made up of teens. W e re always trying to get involved, Mr. Miller said. Mr. Miller uses basswood, the preferred wood of hand carvers. I t s from the linden tree. Its not that soft and it holds details.

18ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Delaying retirement has financial, social benefits The need to save for retirement is something professionals start hearing about from the moment they begin their careers. Whether it's parents extolling the virtues of retirement plans or employers who encourage their employees to take advantage of their r etirement programs, saving for r etirement is never far from the minds of professionals. As important as such savings can be, many workers are deciding to delay their retirements. As much as men and women envision retiring to a faraway seaside villa for their golden years, such r etirements are not terribly common, and many older workers have begun to r ecognize the economic and social benefits of delaying retirement. Those undecided about when they want to say goodbye to the office should consider the following benefits to delaying r etirement. Fewer years to worry about financing your lifestyle. Thanks to advancements in medicine and more and more people living healthier lifestyles, men and women are now living longer than in years past. While living longer, healthier lives is a plus, it does have an effect on retirement. Because people can now expect to live longer, they must ensure their money lasts long enough. By delaying retirement, men and women will have fewer retirement years to finance. More chances to save money. It might be your dream to retire early, but y ou could be doing yourself a great disservice by ending your career prematurely. Men and women at or near the end of their careers are often making more money than they ever have, which enables them to save more than they have in the past, especially if children are full grown and supporting themselves. Take advantage of these high-salary years, even if it means working an extra few years. If you do, when you retire you could have substantially more in savings than you would have had you retired early. Stay socially active. In addition to economic benefits, delaying retirement has social benefits as well. Many people get the bulk of their social interaction with colleagues and coworkers. When men and women retire, these opportunities for social interaction can dwindle r ather quickly, and it's not uncommon for retirees to battle feelings of isolation. D elaying retirement allows you to easily maintain contact with friends and colleagues, and can lead to a better quality of life. The chance to give back. Many older professionals view retirement as being put out to pasture, where their years or experience aren't utilized. However, individuals who delay retirement can use their extra years around the office as an opportunity to leave a legacy for the next generation. This is something professionals find especially valuable as their retirement draws nearer and they want to leave a lasting mark, be it on their company, within their industry or in the community in which their company operates. Delaying retirement provides more time to build this legacy, and can create a greater sense of fulfillment when men and women do decide to retire. D elaying retirement is growing increasingly popular. Men and women often see it as a chance to build a bigger nest egg and leave a more lasting legacy within their company and community. metrocreativeconnection.comF or Hometown NewsDelaying retirement is growing increasingly popular.

S he bought a car phone charger and got permission to try it outside in her car. The woman walked back into the store and returned the original packaging with a charger inside. The only problem was the store clerk noticed the charger in the box was of a different brand than the one sold in his store. He demanded she return his charger and pursued her. In the end, she threw it out the car window. When confronted by St uart police, the woman insisted it was a mistake, as she had put the wrong charger in the box. What she couldnt explain when confronted was why she got to her car and frantically called for boyfriend to return, instead of just opening the door getting the right charger and handing it to the clerk,Not understanding her jobA Fort Pierce woman who worked at a business in J ensen Beach may not have understood her job.

Ms. Bowman spent her time mentoring local students a few hours a week through a r eading program administered by the Big Brothers Big S isters organization. The mother of boys, she felt she connected better with the male students. Then she met Kristina. The young girl had severe medical issues such as seizures, migraines and difficulty walking as a result of surviving brain cancer. The first day our eyes met there was an immediate connection, Ms. Bowman said. W ithin a year, Ms. Bowman had agreed to be Kristinas Big S ister. I liked De from the very beginning, said Kristina. I love De and she loves me, and I know it will be that way forever. The Big Brothers Big Sisters organization matches adults called Bigs to children ages 6 through 18 called Littles. The Big works with the Littles to develop a positive relationship. In S t. Lucie County, the organization is funded by the Childrens Services Council. Last year, we were able to serve 1,637 children in St. L ucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties, said Judi M iller, CEO of Big Brothers B ig Sisters. (Ms. Bowman) always leads by example, and has participated in other facets of the agency, such as speaking at events and re cruiting volunteers. While Ms. Bowman considers the recent award an honor, she feels her time spent with Kristina as a blessing. I have seen Kristina grow from a shy little girl into a confident, smart young woman, she said. She plays volleyball, shes a cheerleader and excels academically. Shes a real hero in every sense of the word. While mentors share their gift of time and caring, the Littles make an impact as w ell, Ms. Miler said. S hes a part of my family, said Ms. Bowman. Ill be at her high school graduation, her college graduation and her wedding. I cant imagine my life without her, and Im so grateful for that.

In about 90 days, a variety of plants will be ready for harvesting. Growing in the garden will be tomatoes, onions, squash, zuchinni, pigeon peas and collard greens. The project began when the Rev. Robert Coleman of Goodwill Presbyterian Church spoke about starting a community garden. He started a similar garden at Lincoln Park Academy. F irst we grew periwinkles, he said. Now the garden grows onions, tomatoes and okra. Part of the food goes to the LPA Center. Mr. Coleman is working with the Rev. Jonathan Weeks of St. Simons Episcopal Church to help bring the garden to life. This morning, he was moving through the garden, showing the volunteers how to space the buckets. This is going to grow, its going to work and its going to help feed the families, he said. Local businesses and government agencies were also on hand helping set up the garden. Na tures Keeper, a FortPierce based business, donated soil, mats and pots. The community gives back to Natures Keeper, said Stewart Feketa, vice president. Mr. Feketa said the owner and founder, Mike W est, believes you reap what y ou sow. W e believe in giving back to the community. We heard about this, and offered our services. Also offering their services we re S tefanie Myers and R enee Scott with St. Lucie C ounty Community Services. Part of the Treasure C oast Community Action Agency used community service block grant dollars to purchase materials for the garden. This is the first step to put fresh fruits and vegetables in the food box, said Ms. My ers. The challenge is that people know how to eat or prepare the fresh food. The next step after the food is picked is to teach people how to prepare and eat it. W e have some fruit and vegetables that we give to people, but they give them back because they dont know how to prepare them, Ms. Malinowski said. This way, we can show them how to cook the food to benefit their family. The final step to the community garden is to teach people how to grow their o wn food, starting with buckets of their own. W e want to work with people to build their own community gardens, said Ms. Myers. To keep the garden sustainable, the ministry is looking for donations of shade cloth, 5-gallon buckets with lids, compost and a compost bin, an irrigation system, a shade structure and volunteers to water and weed the plants. M ustard Seed Ministries is located at 3130 S.U.S.1 in Fo rt Pierce.For more information about volunteering, call (772) 465-6021.For more information about starting a community garden,call Ms. M yers at (772) 462-1777.

S heriff Mascara announced the results of O peration Crackdown, which was in response to that resurgence, he said. D eputies arrested 55 individuals, with the majority being drug dealers well known to investigators, the sheriff said. Ad ditionally, authorities are still looking for 13 other suspects, he said. As the arrests occurred following the two-month operation, people in the community thanked deputies for making their neighborhoods safer, the sheriff said. S ome people may see drug crime as victimless crime, he said. I disagree. Dr ug activity destroys lives, degrades the community and threatens the safety of people who live in areas where drug activity takes, place, he said. The primary purpose of the operation was to reduce the availability of crack cocaine in St. Lucie County, he said. A secondary goal is to gather criminal intelligence from arrestees in an attempt to work our way up the chain in an attempt to eliminate the larger drug traffickers. S heriff Mascara speculated the resurgence of cocaine may be a result of changes in laws that make it more difficult for people to get prescription drugs. The operation targeted the northwest part of St. L ucie County. M any of those arrested have extensive criminal r ecords, he said. It s fr ustrating, he said, that people are still out committing crimes after having been arrested many times previously. S ome of the most notable arrests included: Roger Alcott, 35, who was charged with sale/delivery of marijuana, has previously been arrested 10 times and convicted seven times on charges that included murder, robbery, illegal weapon possession and cocaine offenses. McKinley Parker, 47, who was charged with sale/delivery of cocaine and possession of cocaine, has been arrested previously 29 times and convicted nine times, including on drug charges involving marijuana and cocaine possession. Reginald Grant, 49, who was charged with sale/delivery of cocaine and possession of cocaine, has previously been arrested 23 times and been convicted 16 times, many of them involving cocaine. Those still being sought are: Dymonic Aiken, 21, on charges of sale of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school and possession of cocaine. Joshua Deontae Anthony, 29, on charges including two counts of sale of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a designated area and two counts of possession of cocaine. Darrell Thomas Brunson, 50, on charges of sale of cocaine, possession of cocaine and sale of oxycodone. Jordon A. Ewing, 17, on charges of possession of marijuana and sale of marijuana. Willie Fulton, 46, on charges including two counts of sale of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a church and two counts of possession of cocaine Cornealius Grant, 27, on charges of possession of cocaine and sale of cocaine. Bernarda Kee-Shae K ing, 19, on charges of sale of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a church and possession of cocaine.

Cops bullying citizens would be a good place to start. Ev en though Tom Rooneys district has been dramatically changed by redistricting, we are fortunate that he will be able to remain in Congress. He has consistently represented common sense in the form of smaller and more responsible government, a prosperous economy and perhaps most important, muchneeded private-sector jobs. Anything he can do to help get Florida moving forward again would help people with homes under water.Deadbeat dads should payIt is destructive that our legal system has the tools but is not using them effectively. If a deadbeat dad is caught he should pay the consequences. Among the guilty in the legal system are state attorneys, judges, hearing officers, child support enforcement employees and lawyers. We have the laws in place. Lets insist on prompt and vigorous enforcement.P ostal service demiseOne of the reasons the postal department is going broke is because they have high rates for us regular people and very low rates for the people who send out junk mail. I received three junk-mail envelopes today and all paid only 19 cents and I pay 45 cents.Check your childs social sitesPar ents need to monitor your childs Facebook, Twitter, I nstagram and any other social accounts they have. Some of your children are not who you think they are. I can tell you from reading my daughters wall that your student of the year is not the character of the year. Some of y our children are really nasty and mean. P lease take a moment to look at your childs pages. Look in their inboxes at the conversations they have and read what they post on others walls. Some of you may be shocked! Some of you may be pleasantly surprised. T ake the time and do it now before another student gets hurt. I am begging you, this time it was my daughter who got hurt, next time it could be yours.Europe?What do people mean when they say, Dont follow Eur ope? Thats the whole point! We are already part of Eur ope. What do you think the word global means? Ev erything talked about today is global. I cant believe so many people dont get it. Pr ograms and documentaries (even PBS) showing documentaries about how wonderful it is to visit China, Vietnam, Guam and even Moscow. With arms outstretched, w elcome to China. Obama pushing for less-strict laws letting other countries visit Florida! For me, I dont think so! Is n t it enough China is shipping bugs (ticks) into our ports literally killing people and destroying elm trees in M assachusetts? How many of you hear gravel-voiced Henry Kissinger quote, Its time for a new world order? Thats global. One world order,one world system. one currency (eventually), one leader. Its here. Like the Three M usketeers, all for one and one for all, which, in the global game, is pure and simple communism. What happens to one country happens to the rest. Who doesnt get this yet?W estern suicide?S ome years ago there was a book about the suicide of the w est. C uts in the size of our defense budget may make the books dire predictions come true. At a time when the U.S. faces serious threats from Iran, a near civil war in Syria, a shooting war in Afghanistan and a w eird, unpredictable dictator in North Korea, any reductions in our preparedness are unthinkable. The administrations budget, 12.2 percent down from the level the Pentagon requested last year, is unthinkable. It could mean the suicide of the West. Got something to say?

When it comes to sending attachments through email, most people have one thing in mind: pictures. B ut sending other file types through email can be one of the most massively useful abilities the Internet offers. Picture this: youre working on a file at the office, and its a Word or Ex cel document. A colleague in another part of town or another office needs to see the file. Many people will take the time to print out and physically deliver or fax the document to their colleague, not r ealizing the email system can be used to deliver any kind of file right to another computer. A ttach the file in an email message to your colleague, just as you would if you we re sending a picture. As long as your colleague has the same software that you used to create it, he or she should be able to save it to his or her hard drive or open it just like any other file. Then your colleague can print the document, if he or she wants, or handle it as needed. It is, however, the senders responsibility to make sure the recipients will be able to open the file before it is sent. Nothing is more frustrating than getting an email message marked Heres the file you wanted only to find that the file is in some format that youve never heard of and your computer cant open it. F or instance, if youre planning to send a Word document, find out what word processor the recipient uses. Even if he is also using Word, he may be using an older version of Wo rd than you are, which could cause a problem if he tries to open a file that was created in a newer version. A quick peek in the help pull-down menu and clicking on the about option will tell you what version your word processor is. Ha ve your friend or coworker check his version also, and then try to save y our document in whatever version he is using. If you click save as and look at the file type or format pull-down menu on the save as box that pops up, yo u ll see you have the ability to save your document in many different formats. This puts the control of the file type in y our hands. The same thing applies when you are trying to send a picture. Make sure its a file that is saved in a format that your intended recipient can open. Usually a .jpg (jpeg) is a safe bet. M ost peoples familiarity with email attachments ends with the occasional picture, but once the idea of transferring files that way becomes clear, a lot of possibilities present themselves. He re are the steps for sending a file: F irst, you need to know where the file you want to send is located on your computer, and exactly what its called. So, if you have a document you want to send, save it and pay attention to the file name and the name of the folder that its saved in. Then, when you have y our e-mail program open, click new message and begin to compose your message. Enter the recipients e-mail address, a comment in the subject field and then click the attach button (which is usually represented by a paperclip icon). N ext, your computer will give you some options. You want to indicate to the computer that you are attaching a file to. Click the appropriate button and then navigate to the location on your hard drive where the file that you want to send resides. (Look in the same folder where you saved it in, and then click on the name of the file to select it). Click OK, and the file name will be listed as an attachment. Y ou can even send multiple files by repeating the procedure.

LUCIE Gov. Rick Scott announced the reappointment of Gail Kavanagh to the Florida Inland Navigation District. Ms. Kavanagh, 69, of Po rt St. Lucie, is the executive vice president of Treasure Coast Builders Association. S he is reappointed for a term beginning Jan. 26, ending Jan. 9, 2015. The appointment is subject to confirmation by the F lorida Senate. the Guardian ad Litem program, which provides advocated for children who are victims of abuse and neglect. G uardians for New Futures decided to hold the training sessions in the wake of a number of child abuse cases that have been publicized locally. The aim was to increase awareness of and r eporting possible child abuse. Ms. Akins has dealt with children as an employee of the Department of Children and Family Services for 21 y ears and currently as quality assurance coordinator for the state Child Abuse Death R eview Team. S he said the law mandates everyone to report suspected child abuse. B ut those in certain categories, such as teachers, law enforcement officers, judges, health care workers and social workers must provide their identity when reporting a case to the state child abuse hotline. However, the identity of that person is not disclosed to others unless they give consent, she said. There have been cases where people were charged with failure to report child abuse, she said. Ms. Akins said she personally became aware of a situation where teachers were being discouraged from r eporting child abuse. That changed after she provided administrators with information about state law, she said. The need for more reporting is evident in Florida, a state that ranks eighth in the number of child deaths associated with neglect and abuse, she said. Only Oklahoma, West Virginia, Georgia, Texas, Missouri, Ohio and Kentucky r anked above Florida. T eachers who suspect child abuse shouldnt immediately inform parents of the concern, she said. That can lead to the family fleeing or parents coaching their children on what to say to investigators, Ms. Akins said. B ut investigators have to be careful when interviewing children. Y ou can never use leading questions, she said. That can r esult in a child saying what they believe the interviewer wants to hear, she said. S igns that a child is being abused arent always obvious, she said. Abusers learn not to leave signs where you can see them, she said. A victim of abuse might show fear of family members, be wary of adults, have a poor self-image, be withdrawn, avoid physical touch and have a fear of home, she said. Children who are victims of sexual abuse may have inappropriate sexual knowledge, low self-worth, sleep problems and a drop in grades, she said. They also may miss school, be promiscuous, run away from home and engage in prostitution, she added. J ust because a parent didn t abuse one child doesnt mean that all of their children wont be abused, she said.F or Hometown News newsfp@hometownnewsol.comSignsF rom page A1 EATOUT!

The business gets money to pay her salary by selling those items. If the business collects no money, she ends up without a job.L eaving evidence behindA Fort Pierce man was r ather startled when he arrived home and found a female in his house. She fled and he discovered she had taken $150, a paycheck for $228 and other items. The man didnt know the woman, but he discovered she left a Metro PCS cell phone behind. An officer took the cell phone to a Metro PCS business and learned the identity of the owner. As it turned out, the woman had been in the store shortly before he arrived. She bought a new phone. When confronted later, the woman denied everything, but changed her story after being told she had left her cell phone there. The woman has an extensive criminal record dating back to 1994, when she was charged with burglary. It would seem that after being a criminal for more than 17 years she would know not to leave a cell phone at a residence she burglarized.Community consignment event taking place March 16-18 F or Hometown News newsfp@hometownnewsol.comBlotterF rom page A1 KNOWLEDGEISATERRIBLETHING TOW ASTE... www.hometownnewsol.comSubscribe Today!

Central Park Plaza Port St. Lucie,FL 34986(772) 336-8111kellysanimalhospital.com Addisons Diseaseby Patrick Kelly, DVMAddisons disease, also known as h ypoadrenocorticism, is a condition where the adrenal gland does not produce adequate levels of hormones needed to balance metabolic functions.The adrenal gland produces two types of hormones Corticosteroids are hormones that allow us to handle stress, the flight or flight syndrome.They control glucose and fat which are the main sources of energy that allow us to cope with stress factors. Mineralocorticoids are hormones that control electrolyte balance.This in turn affects kidney function.The cause of Addisons disease is rarely found, but it typically affects younger patients, typically 4-5 years of age and it affects f emales twice as often as males.This disease affects dogs, and ve ry r arely, cats.Clinical signs can range from no signs, to an acute crisis where the patient is presented comatose.The first signs an owner might notice is a dog that is consuming more w ater and urinating more.As the disease progresses, lethargy, inappetance, vomiting and cardiac signs develop as the potassium levels rise. Diagnosis is made based on clinical signs, urinalysis, and b loodwork.The classic Addisonian has an elevated potassium and a decreased sodium.The ratio of sodium to potassium usually drops below 25.Kidney values will begin to elevate as the disease progresses.Not all Addisonian patients fit this classic presentation and the clinician must be open to the possibility of Addisosns disease in a young dog that presents with unexplained signs of kidney disease even with normal electrolyte levels.Confirmation of the disease is made with a blood test called an ACTH Stimulation test.ACTH (adreno corticotropic hormone) is a hormone produced in the pituitary gland in the brain that stimulates the adrenal gland to secrete corticosteroids and mineralocorticoid hormones.Addisonian patients have low corticosteroid levels and do not stimulate post acth administration. T reatment is usually very successful.A patient in crisis is given intravenous fluids with sodium chloride, and corticosteroids. Mineralocoricoid supplementation is begun and can be accomplished with an oral medication called Florinef, or an every 28 day injection called Percortin.Dogs tend to do better with the injection.Care must be taken with future stresses such as surgery, and low dose oral steroid supplementation may be needed for life. Dogs can live normal happy, productive lives with Addisons disease as long as they are managed appropriately.The most f amous human that had Addisons disease was President John F.

I r eceived an email from a reader attacking my suggestions r egarding sell by and use by dates found on food products. I suggested you can use products past these dates. A ccording to the FDA they have nothing to do with dates, they are added by the manufacturer. Outside of baby formula and some forms of poultry, the FDA has nothing to do with it. Using a product just past the dates and handling it properly, they said, it is hardly likely to do you harm, except for boxed products, such as baking mixes, which must not be used past these dates. Good refrigeration, clean surfaces and hand washing must be observed. Dates are an indicator of quality rather than safety. Once a perishable product is frozen it doesnt matter if the date expires because foods kept frozen continuously are safe for long periods of time. If a product smells and looks good it is hardly likely to cause harm. I have been doing this for years and never had a problem. My suggestion is when in doubt, throw it out, it is your choice. F ebruary is Black History M onth, and before the month is gone, I must share some delicious recipes. When I previously wrote a r ecipe for black-eyed peas, I r eceived an email from a r eader with her family story and recipe. Sylvias Florida heritage goes back for generations, before Florida became a state.

LUCIE With the Florida weather living up to its gorgeous reputation, I looked for a place where I could sit outside and enjoy a delicious meal. I found all that and more at M imis Bistro in Port St. L ucie. Fr om the brick drive that takes you there, to the scenic view overlooking the pool and grounds, it was easy to see why some diners would want to keep this r estaurant a secret. B ut I felt I had truly stumbled into a resort as I settled into a comfortable chair. And comfortable was what owner Stephen Schenk was going for when he first opened the bistro in M ay 2010. The location is a challenge. You have to know its here, he said. But once y ou find us, you realize we have a very casual, laidback atmosphere. The bistro has quite a following, with Mr. Schenk sending out specials to diners by special email. W e offer special parties each month, and we change our specials constantly, he said. He said the bistro is mostly a lunch destination, with dinner being offered twice a w eek. One thing I noticed was the prices are very reasonable. I v e tried to keep it affordable so people get the atmosphere for a reasonable price, he said. Looking over the menu, I could see myself coming here for a variety of reasons, all of them sounding delicious. Its obvious at a glance the chef brings his skills to every dish. While the menu offered a wide selection ranging from sandwiches to chicken wings, the bistro has become well known for its burgers and salads. H amburgers are created using Angus beef, and are for those looking for more than just the basics. One burger, called the sofrito queso, is served with avocado, onion, cilantro, salsa, queso cheese and fajita seasoning. The day I visited, I was feeling more like a salad, and Mimis Bistro offers a fantastic selection of unique salads to choose from. I chose the chicken schnitzel salad, made up of panko-breaded herb chick-Local fighter to participate in cage matchBig names, big shows coming to SunrisePORT ST.

I discovered the chef created his own dressing for this salad, and it was just an example of the detail placed into every dish. E verything here is fresh, and made here, said Mr. Schenk. When my salad arrived, I was glad I had skipped breakfast that morning. The generous presentation looked amazing. The panko crumbs added a lightness to the chicken that complimented the crisp salad, and the combinations of all the flavors blended beautifully. The apples and almonds added a nice crunch. What made the presentation more unique was that the chicken was served at the bottom of the salad. Mr. Schenk explained that was for the flavors of the salad to lightly coat the chicken without losing its crunch. No knife was needed though, I easily cut the tender chicken with my fork. The dressing was served on the side, and added a deeper level of flavor to the salad. The addition of the herbs gave it a slightly sweet, slightly acidic flavor, which blended well with the fruit and the cheese in the salad. By the end of the meal, I had to resist licking my fork. If thats what lunch holds in store, I can hardly wait to come back and try dinner. W ednesday night the bistro offers a made-toorder pasta bar and holds a trivia contest.

Served over r ice with a side of corn bread, it is rib-sticking and wonderful. Using ham instead of pork or bacon makes it low fat. 1 large package blackeyed peas 1/4-pound salt pork or bacon, cut up, or 1 ham hock or chunks of ham 1/2-teaspoon each of salt and pepper 1 large clove garlic and 1 large onion, chopped H ot sauce (optional) Co ver peas with cold water; discard any that float. Drain. P lace in pot, cover with water. Br ing to a boil, reduce heat and cook for two minutes. Co ver and let stand for one hour. NOTE: You can let peas soak in the pot overnight. This method removes most of the gas-producing properties. Dr ain peas and return to pot. Add the ham or salt pork, salt and pepper and about 11/2 cups water. Cover and cook for one hour. Add garlic, onion and a few dashes of hot sauce and cook until peas are tender. The gravy will be thick. Add more water if necessary. Se rv e over rice with corn bread.

Fr ogmore is a town located in the low country, just outside of Beaufort, S.C., where the stew was created by slaves. Cr abs were added when available. 6 quarts of water 1/4-cup seafood boil (found in supermarket in spice section) 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 3 tablespoons salt* 2 cloves garlic, peeled 4 extra-large onions, peeled and halved 8 to 10 medium-size red potatoes, whole and unpeeled 2 pounds smoked sausage, cut into 2-inch pieces 12 ears shucked corn on the cob, broken into 4inch pieces 4 pounds large shrimp, unpeeled Add half the salt and tastetest at the end. In a large stockpot, combine the water with next five ingredients, bring to a boil. A dd potatoes and onions, cook for 15 minutes. Add the sausage and cook for 5 minutes. Add the corn and cook for 5 minutes longer. A dd the shrimp and cook until pink, about 3 minutes. Dr ain and serve. I served this dish the authentic way; try it. Cover the table with newspaper, place the bowl of stew in the center, pass around the plates and silverware and go at it!

LUCIE COUNTY Whips will be cracking and horses will be prancing as the Florida Cracker Trail Riders, nearly 170 strong, not including horses, mules and wagons, will parade on horseback through downtown Fort Pierce on Feb. 25 at approximately 10:30 a.m. The parade celebrates the end of the 25th annual 120mile trail ride commemorating Floridas settlers and their rugged cattle raising heritage. The parade begins on N. Se cond Street and Seaway Dr ive and travels south to Orange Avenue, through the farmers market and ends at C obbs Landing by the traffic r oundabout on North Indian River Drive. F ollowing the Civil War, a r ugged bunch of individuals settled along Floridas east coast and central flatlands. They scratched out a living r aising cattle, pigs, vegetables and fishing. These early settlers became known as Florida Cr ackers; a reference to the cracking sound made by the braided, leather whips they used to drive their cattle, r ather than a food preference or a particular philosophy. The leather-tough pioneers, known as Cracker Co wmen, from up and down the east coast and throughout central Florida, gathered with their scrub cattle each y ear, congregating west of Fo rt Pierce to drive their giant herd across the state to P unta Rosa, near todays S anibel. The passageway between Fort Pierce and P unta Rosa was the only dry trans-Florida passageway. Fo rt Pierces historic P.P. C obb Store figured prominently in the cattle drive. Each day, as the cattle massed west of town, Cobbs store ran 10 wagons, day and night, taking supplies out to the cattlemen and their herds as they prepared for the month-long journey. As they crossed the state, they were faced with untold hardship; thieves, snakes, swarms of mosquitoes, swamps and disease were just some of the challenges faced by the cowmen. F ollowing the Cracker Tr ail parade, the public is invited to join the riders to learn more about Florida history and this historic event by meeting the trail r iders and learning about local history and the Florida Cr acker Trail Association. O pportunities for children to get their pictures taken aboard a horse or mule will be available. Of course, carr ots and apple slices are always appreciated. The Florida Cracker Trail Association is a nonprofit association dedicated to preserving the unique history of Florida through the r eenactment of this historic r ide and other educational activities.

S antana, who threw 25 pitches to catcher Josh Thole in that session, said it felt great to get back to throwing on the mound. I finally had a chance to get on the mound and throw to a catcher, to Thole, and I felt really good, Santana said. The approach that we had from the beginning was to do everything like I always do to get ready for the season. For me, its about time to get on the mound and start throwing. And I was able to throw all of my pitches and it felt good after that. S antana said his arm and mechanics are getting back to where they we re before his injury. When I was hurt, I wasnt able to finish and my mechanics were totally different, he said. Now, Im getting back to what I used to be and thats what Im looking for. Being able to get that delivery with no problems and let the ball do everything. Im not trying to push it or muscle it or anything, just let the ball go and build up from there. M ets manager Terry C ollins was pleased with S antanas session, calling it a huge first step. C ollins expects Santana to participate fully in drills with pitchers once spring training begins. As we sit here today the answer to that is y es, Collins said. Ob viously, we have to make an adjustment on a daily basis, as we did last year with (former M ets outfielder) Carlos (Beltran). But you saw the smile on his face. You dont think hes happy with whats going on? Its a huge step for us. Its a big day for him. Now its just gradually moving forward and building him up. B ut Santana is up for the challenge. I m not afraid of anything, he said. Im actually excited about being out on the mound and being able to start competing.PitcherF rom page B6 Finz Waterfront Grille, 4290 S.E. Salerno Road, Port Salerno, (772) 283-1929.

2ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG A taxing subject There are several memorable lines from Gone with the Wind, but one of my favorites is Death, taxes and childbirth! Theres never any convenient time for any of them. That is true, but at this time of year, while we may avoid death and childbirth, taxes are with us. This months F orever Young theme is financial and tax planning. Its a subject that makes a lot of us nervous. To ease some of the panic, the issue contains interviews with financial advisers and certified public accountants who have tips on how to plan for r etirement and have the type of r etirement youve dreamed of. My father, Alfred Koppel, of Stuart, is 93. He has been a CPA for nearly 70 y ears and still has a client or two. In fact, he went to the IRS office in Port S t. Lucie a few months ago for a client audit. He has seen a lot of changes in the industry and the practice of accounting in the days before computers and tax programs. B efore I got certified, I worked as an assistant bookkeeper, he said. I decided I might as well get a job as an accountant. I had two introductory courses under my belt. I answered a few questions and got a job as an accountant. In those days, you had to have a college degree and a years experience before you could complete all four parts of the CPA exam, which included theory, law, auditing, and problems. D ad wanted to start his own practice, but didnt know where to begin.

4ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Planning key to comfortable retirement FORT PIERCE David Pittinos is a Certified Financial Pl anner with PCC Financial Advisers, a division of Pr octor, Crook, Crowder & Fogal. The first thing he tells his clients do to when they begin to plan for retirement is to get a copy of The Total Money Makeover, by Dave R amsey. I t s a great blueprint on finances and getting and keeping control of them, he said. The next step in the process is to have a budget. Y ou need to know where your expenses go and where you can make cuts, Mr. Pittinos said. Get annual bids on homeowners and auto insurance to make sure youre getting the best deal. The adviser said that paying down credit card and automobile debt more rapidly is another important way to get control of your finances. If you have a 401 (k) through your employer, its important to maximize contributions and take advantage of matching programs. If your employer doesnt have a plan, set up an IRA. The emphasis is on reducing debt and saving. P eople get a windfall, like an inheritance or a bonus, Mr. Pittinos said. Its important not to spend it. Save it, invest it or use it to pay down debt.

5ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Carver brings life to wood FORT PIERCE In Joe Millers woodcarving studio in Fort Pierce, there is a picture of Johnny Depp, holding a walking stick made by Mr. Miller. The picture is inscribed by the actor, thanking Mr. Miller for the amazing stick and saying he made good use of it in the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie. In addition to woodcarving, Mr. M iller belongs to an RV club, the Go Go Angels. In that club is his good friend, J ohn Depp, father of the swashbuckling pirate. Mr. Miller made John Depp a walking stick and Mr. Depp asked the carver to make one for his son. Mr. Miller doesnt know if Johnny D epp used it in the movie or was just being kind in accepting the gift, but he is proud that the actor has one of his works. The Long Island native retired from the railroad in 1999 and moved to Florida. A bridge inspector, he had worked with wood and sketching throughout his career, but he hadnt found his calling. I came here and didnt have a hobby, he said. I tried golf, but I didnt like it. I tried fishing, and liked it, but when I got a taste of wood carving, that was it. I live it, I love it and I love to share it. Mr. Millers introduction to woodcarving came on an RV trip to Yosemite N ational Park in California. A man named Knotty Old Man was carving and Mr. Miller asked him how to begin carving faces on the walking sticks he collected H e said, Get a sharp knife, get a mirr or and carve, Mr. Miller said. When Mr. Miller returned to Florida, he found a carving club in Port St. Lucie. After several years of taking classes and practicing, he began offering beginners By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor See CARVER, Page 12 Photo courtesy of Joe MillerJoe Miller and his student, Danny are keen wood carvers. 681126

It was a little confusing for me to watch our peace and love generation morph into our parents. We had pledged to each other that we could make the planet a better place by avoiding the 9-to-5 rat r ace that had ensnared our hapless parents. We vowed that the pursuit of the almighty dollar would never be a part of our future. N ot us. We would spend our time hanging out with friends, smoking Mother Na ture and listening to cool music. It was all to be so idyllic and pastoral. O ur very own take on living the good life. Then it happened. Z AP! R eality hit like a lightning bolt. C ollege money dried up and our parents cut us loose. We had no choice but to take our two years of P oly-Sci or our philosophy degree out into the workplace and try to turn them into cash. It proved to be very difficult. Y et, when we did go to work, we excelled like none before us. The post war generation authored an explosion of new and exciting ideas that carry us till this day. Technology would be our gift to the world. While we were doing that, however, we ignored one basic fact: Our country was built on hard work. The kids who went to San Francisco with flowers in their hair had no interest in doing the mundane labor that carries this great nation. Ours was a larger, more ethereal (and less physically demanding) calling. At least that was how we perceived it. As for me, I found out that once I married my little hippy girlfriend a whole lot of responsibility was part of the deal. When the kids came along forget about it I had no choice but to immerse myself in the work that would provide the cash to sustain us. It was amazing how fast my ideals began to conform. My peace sign quickly turned into a Mercedes emblem. In my younger days I had searched for the perfect high, but now my goal was the perfect mutual fund. The horror! The changes were insidious. As the years passed I didnt even r ealize that my interest in the Rolling S tones had been replaced by my worry over kidney stones. I had started out protesting against the man and now I was the man. R unning a business, raising children, paying a mortgage and fretting about my federal income taxes. When I looked into the mirror I could no longer see the long-haired kid who lounged away his days playing harmonica in the park at Haight Ashbury. Back then I had been concerned about mans injustice to man, but now my problems were personal. I had gone from scoring killer weed to buying weed killer. I nstead of growing pot I was growing a pot belly.6ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Even hippies gotta worry about money eventually LAND LINESD AN SMITH See JUMP, Page 10 010291

FORT PIERCE When youre getting r eady to retire, you dont want any surprises. Thats why Chris Fogal, a certified public accountant and shareholder with Proctor, Crook, Crowder & Fogal, counsels his clients to prepare for that time well in advance. O ne of the biggest traps people fall into between 50 and Medicare is medical insurance, he said. When they leave employment, either voluntarily or involuntarily, theres a void in coverage. It s very costly and it catches many people by surprise. F or many people past 50, their health is not what it was when they were 30, and that may make it difficult to be insured. The presidents plan could change that, but we dont know what it will be. The cost of providing for health insurance is one expense many people dont anticipate. What Im finding is that people who thought they were OK find that health insurance can be as much as a mortgage payment, he said. Theres the loss of income and the increased cost of insurance as youre no longer part of a group. B efore they make life-changing decisions, people need to have a plan for health insurance or be aware of the costs. A key step for people approaching r etirement is to quite literally get your house in order. A person is better off having the house paid for and taking the standard deduction, Mr. Fogal said. The more people can move to reduce debt around them, the better off theyll be. Mr. Fogal sees clients whose expectations for retirement are not realistic. P eople think they will be fine, but they are not putting money aside and they are using credit cards unwisely. I have longtime clients who have been r etired for years who are looking for a job. Thats not what should be happening. Y ou need a good, solid plan. When a person decides to build a house, there is a tremendous amount of planning, from the foundation to the roof. Why should your retirement (planning) not be the same thing? Mr. Fogal approaches each case individually. P eople need to understand that everyones circumstances are different, he said. When you hear t his is what you should do, you need to listen to y our own professional and not to the neighbor. The situations are generally different.

8ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Youve been researching your family and entering names, dates and other pieces of the puzzle, but have you noted where y ou obtained this information? W ill you remember where you found it, next month, year, or 10 y ears from now? The answer is a guaranteed NO. So starting today, document everything before you get to far down the road and have to backtrack.. This will help your research tremendously in the future, when y ou need to find that elusive bit of information that will help you climb the inevitable brick wall. It also gives other researchers 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. For tunately, I did get copies of most of the official documents, or can remember 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 v alidation. 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 exactly 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 B eth. 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, by a person r easonably knowledgeable about the event. A secondary record is one that was created sometime later. The secondary source is not viewed as being as accurate 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 possible. All that said, there are no sources that are guaranteed as being corr ect. Death certificates often contain wrong information, with the informant not knowing the deceased birth date or parents names. T ombstones also frequently contain incorrect information. A r elative in our family is actually buried under the wrong name. Document your sources in tracing your roots GENEALOGYB RENDA K.

9ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG go into business, he said. I went from one job to another. I would pick up an account from someone I knew and eventually got a part-time job and had private clients. One of his first clients was a Russian migr. H e had a small shop making cartridges for the Army during the war. We liked each other and one day I got a call from him. He wanted to build houses on post-World War II Long I sland because the construction of the Whitestone Bridge made it easier to get there. He wanted me to be his accountant. Fr om then on, my father built a practice on Long Island, made up of an interesting mix of Europeans and Americans. There was even a Russian princess. My father worked from home at a time when most of my friends fathers traveled into The City on the Long Island Railroad every day. A ccounting, he said, was very different. When you prepared a tax return in those days, there might be 100 calculations to finish. If there was one mistake, you had to do the whole thing ov er because every calculation changed. It was all done with a pencil, a good eraser, a song and a prayer. A tax return took one to two hours, but if you had to redo it, it took you four. My mother checked the math, going over each calculation. There were so many that you were bound to make a mistake, my father said. Even the calculators were primitive and it was easy to make a mistake. Most of the time, I did it without a calculator. When I first started, I added every long column by hand. Y ou never knew if you picked up the r ight numbers. Sometimes you had to do it over three or four times. It was a lot of extra hard, dirty work. My father noted that both the tax code and audits have become much more complicated. Theres no question the tax code has become more complex, he said. I m not sure if it would have become so complex without computers and calculators because it wouldnt be possible to do it. As computations have become easier to make, the tax codes have become more complicated. T ax audits have also become more complicated. Y ears ago, it was a relaxed situation, he said. The IRS agent came, he knew his stuff and was able to do the job. He would come in, relax, put his briefcase down, work, wed go out to lunch, have a cocktail, come back and finish. He came up with the tax and it was all done that way. The average return did not take very long. I t slowly became more difficult to get an audit done in a short period. The agent has audit procedures and he has to check off everything before he gets finished. They can make no decisions on their own. Theyre not allowed to go out to lunch, but it takes a day or two instead of three to four hours to come up with the same amount of tax. At the end of the interview with my father, my mother, Lillian, got on the phone and told a story that seemed to encapsulate how different things are today. My fathers first cousin, also named Alfred, was also preparing to become a CPA. He was doing his year of work experience to qualify and the firm was not paying him because they knew they had a captive audience. He finally asked for subway fare, then 5 cents each way. The firm fired him. S helley Koppel is an associate news editor of Forever Young.You can r eacher her at S helleyKoppel@comcast.net.T axingFrom page 2 018321 681119

10ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG W ith my kids wanting to attend college I had to cut corners. The guy who wanted to change the world was r educed to hunting down the best early bird special. Most of the time I r emained optimistic that my financial situation would change for the better and I would soon be back on my feet. In r eality, if I didnt come up with a car payment I would be on my feet soon enough. As tight as money was I remember how shot down I was when the girl at M cDonalds gave me a senior discount on a cup of coffee. Me? A senior? I had to bite my tongue to keep from telling her where to put that discount. I was only 55. Still, once I calmed down, I had to admit that my dreams of a smooth-running BMW had now become dreams of a smooth-running BM. Now when I heard the name Grateful Dead, an image of Dr. Kevorkian would pop into my mind. It was just awful. Now, as a semi-retired individual, I am happy to receive a check from the same government that I once wanted to overthrow. My savings receive almost no interest, and I pay for M edicare that will probably not even be there when I need it. Instead of acid I need an antacid. My K-E-G is now an E-K-G. B ut you know, life these days is pretty good. My beautiful hippie wife Lana is still with me and we raised two great kids. We are OK financially and I have plenty of time to reflect on the journey that I traveled. Becoming my parents was not nearly as traumatic as I once believed. Somewhere deep inside I know that if I had to, I could still spend my days in the park living off Ramen Noodles and peanut butter. I just hope that all of my brothers and sisters survived the trip as well as I did. LandlinesFrom page 6 ing professional advice because the cost. Ask attorneys or bankers to recommend an adviser, he said. You want to find a financial adviser that is independent. This way they can maintain their objectivity by offering a vast array of non-proprietary services and solutions that meet the unique needs of their clients. I believe that independence and objectivity are paramount values for the financial services professional. It s critical for retirement planning. One of Mr. Fogals passions is eldercare and he has spoken to groups of CPAs about the special needs of an aging population. (Suppose) you have a lady who seems to be in great shape and she always prepares her documents for y ou, he said. The next year, everything is messy. You know there is a problem. Something has happened. F amilies need to know about changes in behavior. They may need to reorganize who will take care of things like bill paying, especially if they are at a distance. The CPA may be the point of communication. F or those still uncertain about paying a CPA for financial advice, Mr. F ogal has a practical idea, tied in with the ending of the tax season on Apr il 15.

He suggests that clients go to the Social Security w ebsite www.ssa.gov. to access the benefit calculator and get an idea of what you will receive. As you go into your 60s, you can take it out at different times, he said. If yo u re in good health and your family has a history of longevity, wait and let the benefits build up. The longer you wait, the higher the benefits. Its roughly 8 percent higher each year. Mr. Pittinos said that its important to ask yourself how you envision retirement. He suggests having four plans: A ctivities Those are the reasons to get up in the morning and include things like joining the board of a non profit organization, taking classes and starting an exercise program R ecreation plan While you may enjoy taking a day off to play golf, y ou may not want to do it every day. M ix it up to keep it enjoyable. M edical plan senior health care expenses are exploding because of inflation. Have a long-term health plan. F inancial plan Have a budget and take out a certain amount every y ear. It makes more sense to take a percentage, so that if investments fluctuate, the amount you take out is adjusted. Mr. Pittinos said that a financial adviser can help you work out the plans, but you must feel comfortable with that individual. I nterview the person, Mr. Pittinos said. Make sure you like each other and are compatible. Get credentials and make sure theyre welltrained. Find out how they are compensated and if there are additional costs and ask what happens if your adviser leaves the company. Is there back up? Check the website of the F inancial Industry Regulatory A uthority (www.finra.org.) to find out if they had any past issues that r equired disclosure. F inally, Mr. Pittinos said there is one last, direct question to ask: Why would I choose you to be my adviser? If you are not satisfied with the answer, keep looking.

12ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG classes at local libraries in Fort Pierce, Ve ro Beach and Sebastian. By 2007, so many men and women we re interested that they rented a r oom at the Moose club in Vero Beach to hold meetings of the Indian River W oodcarvers Club. Today, it has close to 100 members and about 45 attend every Thursday to practice their craft. In 2010, Mr. Miller wanted to get more involved in teaching. He joined other artists in Art Mundo on Orange Av enue. The space has some 40 artists who display their work. N ow I have a studio to show my work and teach, he said. Among his students is Mike DeBenedetto, who has been studying for six weeks. I wanted to do it since I was a kid, he said. That was 70 years ago. I never could find a place. When Im doing it, I cant think about anything else. Its r elaxation. Another student is Danny Bell, a 16y ear-old with a lot of talent. H e is blessed, Mr. Miller said. He can carve anything. Hes won awards and has a great imagination. The club members love him. I have high hopes for him. I told him that eventually he can become my partner. One of the most important projects for the group is the Purple Heart Program. W e make canes for Purple Heart vets, Mr. Miller said. All vets are important, but we have to limit it. When we get six to 10 canes completed, we have a ceremony, with a color guard and refreshments. M aking these special canes is a labor of love. They give us a copy of their discharge papers ands we are able to go online and get information about where they served and their medals. We put it on a special paper and print it. It comes out on the cane. They get a certificate signed by the carver that states how proud we are of them. It can be used or displayed. It brings tears to some of their eyes. The group has also decorated a Christmas tree with hand-carved ornaments and raffled it off for chariot. Right now, they are carving 13 trophies to donate to an environmental group made up of teens. W e re always trying to get involved, Mr. Miller said. Mr. Miller uses basswood, the preferred wood of hand carvers. I t s from the linden tree. Its not that soft and it holds details. The grain is tight. With sharp tools, you can do majestic things with it. Y ou can even impress a pirate. J oe Millers studio is located at Art M undo,111 Orange Ave,Fort Pierce.

18ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Delaying retirement has financial, social benefits The need to save for retirement is something professionals start hearing about from the moment they begin their careers. Whether it's parents extolling the virtues of retirement plans or employers who encourage their employees to take advantage of their r etirement programs, saving for r etirement is never far from the minds of professionals. As important as such savings can be, many workers are deciding to delay their retirements. As much as men and women envision retiring to a faraway seaside villa for their golden years, such r etirements are not terribly common, and many older workers have begun to r ecognize the economic and social benefits of delaying retirement. Those undecided about when they want to say goodbye to the office should consider the following benefits to delaying r etirement. Fewer years to worry about financing your lifestyle. Thanks to advancements in medicine and more and more people living healthier lifestyles, men and women are now living longer than in years past. While living longer, healthier lives is a plus, it does have an effect on retirement. Because people can now expect to live longer, they must ensure their money lasts long enough. By delaying retirement, men and women will have fewer retirement years to finance. More chances to save money. It might be your dream to retire early, but y ou could be doing yourself a great disservice by ending your career prematurely. Men and women at or near the end of their careers are often making more money than they ever have, which enables them to save more than they have in the past, especially if children are full grown and supporting themselves. Take advantage of these high-salary years, even if it means working an extra few years. If you do, when you retire you could have substantially more in savings than you would have had you retired early. Stay socially active. In addition to economic benefits, delaying retirement has social benefits as well. Many people get the bulk of their social interaction with colleagues and coworkers. When men and women retire, these opportunities for social interaction can dwindle r ather quickly, and it's not uncommon for retirees to battle feelings of isolation. D elaying retirement allows you to easily maintain contact with friends and colleagues, and can lead to a better quality of life. The chance to give back. Many older professionals view retirement as being put out to pasture, where their years or experience aren't utilized. However, individuals who delay retirement can use their extra years around the office as an opportunity to leave a legacy for the next generation. This is something professionals find especially valuable as their retirement draws nearer and they want to leave a lasting mark, be it on their company, within their industry or in the community in which their company operates. Delaying retirement provides more time to build this legacy, and can create a greater sense of fulfillment when men and women do decide to retire. D elaying retirement is growing increasingly popular. Men and women often see it as a chance to build a bigger nest egg and leave a more lasting legacy within their company and community. metrocreativeconnection.comF or Hometown NewsDelaying retirement is growing increasingly popular.
