LUCIE COUNTY S itting on more than 1,000 acres on Hutchinson Island in St. Lucie County, the two r eactors at the St. Lucie N uclear Power Plant have been serving county residents for more than 30 y ears. Now, after a monthslong project upgrading equipment, residents will have at least another 25 y ears of efficient energy production. "W e wanted to make sure we we re able to get as much power as possible," said Jack H offman, the licensing manager for the power upgrade project. N uclear power is created when water is pumped through a nuclear reactor without being exposed to r adiation. The heated water is converted to steam and that is then converted to electricity. ST. LUCIE COUNTY An area company is gearing to donate a bike in the name of each of the next 1,000 customers who make purchases at its stores across Martin, St. L ucie and Palm Beach counties. B ikeStreet USA, a chain of chain of specialty retail cycling stores, is partnering with Bikes for Tykes to make the donations this month and next, in time for the holiday season.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals urged city officials to inspect the animals. No code violations were found.Circus animal's safety is priority for manyPORT ST. LUCIE When the circus came to town the weekend of Nov. 15-17, the activist group P eople for the Ethical Tr eatment of Animals, was close behind. Earlier in November, D elcianna Winders, director of captive animal law enforcement for PETA, sent a letter to city officials asking them to inspect the animals used in the Cole Br os. circus acts. On Nov. 16, the city r eported code enforcement personnel found no violations at the event. Animals have always been a part of the traditional, American-style circus," said Bill Carter, one of the marketing directors for C ole Brothers circus, "and they've always been a part of our show." Mr. Carter stressed the animals' safety is a priority for the circus. The exotic animals are all under federal jurisdiction and all the animal handlers are federally licensed," he said. The circus was previously fined $15,000 by the U.S. D epartment of Agriculture for its treatment of two elephants, which were r emoved from the circus' care in 2009. "I was glad to learn that the city of Port St. Lucie is taking seriously its duties to enforce animal control ordinances," said Ms. W inders in a press release. S he urged the city council to use an independent exotic-animal expert to help inspect the animals used in the performances in the city. While city officials didn't call in an exotic-animal expert, they stated code enforcement would conduct an inspection. "W e will have code enforcement there, absolutely," said Ed Cunningham, communications director for the city of Po rt S t. Lucie. "B ut they are only going to look for city code violations. The animal inspections can only be done by the U.S. Department of Agriculture or Florida Fish and Wildlife." The USDA makes r equired inspections of circuses several times a year, looking at both the animals and the records of animal care. In 2011, a bill was introduced to Congress the "T ra velling Exotic Animal Pr otection Act," which, if Sevin Bullwinkle /staff photographerIt's elephant feeding time at Digital Domain Park on Thurs., Nov. 15. The Cole Brother's Circus was in town last week and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals asked city officials to complete an inspection of the animals. No code violations were found.

C ANDY & CAKE SUPPLIES 048168The vertebrae or backbone are a series of bones that support and protect the spinal cord.In between these vertebrae are disks that cushion the bones and act as spacers between the vertebrae.These disks can herniate or protrude into the spinal column causing pain and neurologic deficits.This tends to occur in middle aged to older, small, long back breeds.The most overly represented breed is the dachshund, but this syndrome can occur in all breeds including the larger breeds.We see an average of 3 cases a week in our practice. The clinical signs can range from mild back pain to complete paralysis.Typically a dog will present with the complaint that it is not jumping up on the couch as usual, and cries when picked up.Often the owner will say their appetite is less and they may be reluctant to "go to the bathroom."This occurs because the back and neck are painful and the dog is reluctant to bend to eat, or assume the position to defecate or urinate.On the physical examination there may be conscious proprioceptive deficits, weakness especially in the rear legs, and pain when the neck is manipulated or the back palpated.CP deficits are documented when the toes are turned with the topside down.The dog should immediately right the foot to the proper position.A delay signifies and interruption in the signal from the foot to the brain.More serious clinical signs include dragging the rear legs, crossing of the rear legs when walking, and a frog legged stance. Diagnosis is made on clinical signs, and occasionally with radiogr aphy.The more serious cases are referred to a veterinary neurologist who will perform myelograms, or an MRI to identify the exact location of the herniated disk. T reatment depends on the severity of signs.Early cases are treated with cage rest and steroids or non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, m uscle relaxants, pain medication, and intravenous polyethylene glycol.We have a therapeutic laser machine that is a wonderful treatment modality.The light laser is anti-inflammatory, and relieves pain. This is also used post surgery to speed up recovery.A study at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine showed that paralyzed dogs that received post operative laser therapy walked an av erage of 5 days post op versus dogs that didn't that walked an av erage of 17 days later.There are no side effects and we use it e xtensively in the treatment of iv disk disease.Surgery is recommended by a board certified neurologist if there is significant paresis or weakness in the legs, or if the dog is very painful and does not respond to medical treatment.Prognosis depends on the severity of the herniation, how soon after the occurrence of the disk herniation the dog is seen by a veterinarian, and how aggressively the dog is treated.Surgery involves removal of the disk, and occasionally making a window in the vertebrae to make room for the disk material. Prevention entails keeping the dog physically fit, as overweight dogs have a much higher incidence of intervertebral disk disease.I try to discourage clients with predisposed breeds to allow them to get on couches and beds as puppies.It is much easier to train them not to do this than to try and keep them off a bed after the condition develops.

One of the greatest joys of the holiday season is the colorful Christmas cactus. These majestic plants come in a va r iety of colors including r ed, white, pink, magenta, y ellow and orange. These plants are a popular commodity at most retail outlets during the holidays and usually will sell out fast. The individual flowers can add a burst of color to your dŽcor for a week or more, while a single plant's blooming cycle can continue for a month or more. Christmas cacti, or schlumbergera russelliana, are not true cacti so they will not tolerate totally dry conditions for long periods of time. These plants are native to Brazil and normally grow up in the trees and thrive on organic materials such as mold and r otting leaves. S ince they enjoy the shade of the tropical forest, they will not tolerate direct sun or dry conditions. These plants can last for many years under the right conditions and with a little TLC. When the plants mature, the leaves tend to form a cascading burst of color that looks great in a hanging basket. You can also easily propagate the plants by taking cuttings and planting them directly in a high quality potting soil that is light in texture. Christmas cacti are fairly easy to grow in an indoor home atmosphere. They have a great ability top withstand cool temperatures and short periods of dry spells. As easy as it is for these plants to grow, it will take a little extra TLC to get the bountiful flowers that are their trademark. One important factor in the flowering process is to start allowing the soil to dry out between watering cycles as winter approaches. It is also very important to place the plants in an area that will have less than 12 hours of natural or artificial light for at least six w eeks. Also, it is important to keep the temperature cool during this process. Once y ou have your flowers started, you can resume y our normal watering schedule along with your normal room temperatures. As you can see, with a little TLC and some special care, you can have beautiful flowering Christmas cacti year after year without the cost of having to r eplace your plants every y ear. If y ou buy poinsettias for the holidays, one of the most common pest problems you might encounter is the whitefly. If you shake the leaves of the plant and y ou see little white specs flying around the plant, y our poinsettia is infested with whiteflies. Whiteflies are typically very hard to control but with this quick tip, you can avoid dangerous insecticides. You can use a handheld vacuum to get rid of these pests, simply disturb the leaves of the plant (carefully) with one hand while you vacuum the whiteflies away with a sweeping motion around the plant. This process can also be used for other houseplants that might acquire these pests. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY For more than 60 years, AT&T and the AT&T Foundation have been strong supporters of the United Way, both at national and local levels. T oday, AT&T continues this legacy of support through a contribution of $6,000 to U nited Way of St. Lucie C ounty. In 2012 alone, AT&T gave $5.77 million to 574 local U nited Ways across the country. The United Way of St. L ucie County will use the contribution to support programs that create longlasting change in the local community. The United Way is dedicated to improving lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities around the world to advance the common good, as is evident from the work the United W ay is doing in Florida. In 2012, the United Way of S t. Lucie County, and volunteers, raised more than $1 million to support programs that center on education, income and health. Last year alone, more than 4,400 St. Lucie County children were given school supplies to start the school year. N early 8,000 dental screenings have been performed throughout 12 St. Lucie C ounty elementary schools with more than 14,000 tooth brushes distributed to youth in pre-K to second grade. The United Way of St. L ucie Counties efforts, coupled with the ongoing support of the community, has provided thousands of families throughout the county with the resources they need to live a better life. "U nited Way of St. Lucie C ounty has transformed into an organization that not only raises dollars for selected health and human service programs, but is proactive in identifying unacceptable community conditions and then focuses its many resources on creating and supporting initiatives that work to improve those conditions,"said Brad G uffin, United Way of St. L ucie County board chairman. "We attribute our success to our donors, to our volunteers who have given of their time and talents, to our community partners and to the health and human service agencies we support." In addition to this contribution, each year AT&T employees take part in an employee giving campaign that provides millions to the U nited Way. In 2011, AT&T employees, including employee members of the Communication Wo r kers of America, the I nternational Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and the T elecommunications International Union, pledged $33.8 million through this campaign. "A T&T shares United W ay's commitment to strengthening communities and improving lives," said C athy McKenzie, who handles legislative and external affairs for AT&T Florida. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, November 23, 2012 Po rt St. Lucie A11 769620 AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMAll Around Gymnastics2012/2013 SCHOOL YEARFor Boys &Girls!

ST. LUCIE COUNTY The community is invited to participate in the second annual "Take Back the N ight," an event to help r aise awareness and shatter the silence for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence. The event will be held on De c. 7 from 7-10 p.m. at the dance studio of Tryst Downtown, 305 Orange Ave., Fort Pierce, which has donated its space. A clearinghouse of support agencies will be on hand to answer questions and distribute literature and information on services and r esources. Local teenage girls who have been affected by sexual violence have hand-decor ated T-shirts with personal expressions and artwork. The shirts will be strung on a clothesline suspended in the space as part of the Clothesline Project. The Clothesline Project is a program started in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women by offering a vehicle for women and girls affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. They then hang the shirt on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women. A march through downtown Fort Pierce will be followed by a candlelight vigil and speak out for victims of sexual violence to share their stories. The event is free and open to the public. One in every three women is the victim of a sexual assault, often at the hands of someone she knows and loves. Whether it is in the form of incest, date-rape, intimate partner violence or sexual assault by a stranger, without the community's awareness, it will continue to happen. "She might be your sister, y our daughter, your niece or even you. She's a victim of a crime we don't speak about comfortably and she's probably suffering in a silence that could ruin her life," said M indi Fetterman, the event's organizer. "It's important that victims break the silence and know that there are local r esources that she or he can turn to." Y ou don't have to be victim of sexual violence or even know someone who has been, though chances are you do know someone who hasn't shared it yet. The event is sponsored by the I nner Truth Project.

There's no major prer equisite to donating the bike," said Pat Patregnani, founder and chairman/CEO, which has its flagship store in Stuart."You can come in and purchase a 50-cent item. We will donate a bike to a child in your name." The bikes are suitable for boys and girls, ages 7-10. "B ottom line is if you look at our personal history it's always been about growing the sport. Where better an opportunity to grow the sport than to get children back out riding bikes?" Mr. Patregnani said. The bike giveaway is the latest philanthropic venture for the Juno-based company, which opened eight area stores in November. This month it donated $10,000 to Habitat for H umanity's Women Build project and contributed $5,000 to a ride to support families displaced by natur al disasters. Mr. Patregnani said his nonprofit, zMotion, has r aised millions for Florida nonprofitsThe retail value of the bikes, plus expenses promoting the giveaway, brings its total costs to about $270,000.

"I t' s simple, no child should be without a bike," Mr. Patregnani said in a press release.

Editor's note: This is a list of arrests,not convictions, and all arrestees are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty in a court of law. "I carefully considered the pleadings," Judge Vaughn said. "For what it's worth, I appreciate the significance of this." He also stated he read the transcript of the Palm Beach C ounty court proceeding, where the congressman was denied an injunction on No v. 9 to impound the county's voting machines and ballots there. "I n my view, Mr. West and the other plaintiffs have not established sufficient evidence," Judge Vaughn said. He w ent on to state he "simply doesn't have the authority to grant the request under the circumstances." He also stressed his decisions should not affect future actions of the county's canvassing board who met later that afternoon. This cannot bind the canvassing board," Judge V aughn said. "I trust that they are aware of their duties and obligations." At their meeting, the board decided to recount all the early voting ballots, and began early on the morning of Nov. 17. They reconvened to finish on Nov. 18 and according to an employee in the supervisor of elections office, were able to send the final results to the state in time to meet the Nov. 18 noon deadline. In the Nov. 6 election, C ongressman West lost by 0.8 percent of the total votes. In the unofficial results, C ongressman West received 157,872 votes or 49.6 percent to Mr. Murphy's 160, 328 or 50.4 percent, a difference of 2,456 votes. In S t. Lucie County, the congressional race was part of a retabulation of ballots the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections conducted on Nov. 11, because some issues, such as the memory cards that were being used on certain days, did not transfer the data like they we re supposed to. The canvassing board only retabulated the early ballots that were cast from No v. 1 through Nov. 3, which we re the early voting days in question. As a result of the retabulation, Congressman West lost 132 votes in St. Lucie, while Mr. Murphy lost 667. But while the gap between the two candidates closed slightly, it was still a .57 percent difference, and wasn't enough to trigger an automatic recount, which r equires one half of one percent or less. On Nov. 13, Rep. West filed a lawsuit demanding a r ecount of all the early votes in St. Lucie County. The county canvassing board had to certify the final r esults by noon on Nov. 18 and the state issued its final certification numbers by Nov. 20. Re p. W est is currently in W ashington, D.C., serving in C ongress, while Mr. Murphy r eturned to his temporary office in Palm Beach Gardens after finishing orientation in Washington, D.C.RecountF rom page A4

In the past, whenever M icrosoft released a new operating system, I have always advised people not to jump on the band wagon r ight away but rather stay with their proven operating system for as long as possible (a year or more) to give the folks at Microsoft enough time to work out all the bugs that get submitted after the new operating system has been released into the wild. S ometimes the transition goes smoothly (as it did with the transition to W indows XP) and sometimes the transition is a disaster (as it was with W indows ME) but in the past, it was always fairly easy to find new machines r unning the older, more proven operating systems and wait until they got all the bugs fixed on the new system before making a change. This strategy helped many people avoid the Windows Vista fiasco several years ago and instead transition straight into the more stable W indows 7. W ell here we are just a couple weeks after the r elease of Windows 8 and I'm afraid the strategy of waiting a goodly amount of time for them to prove the new system in the real world just might be limited this time around. Y ou see, just a few days after the release of Windows 8 I ventured down to the local big-box office supply store to have a look and was r eally surprised to find only W indows 8 machines on the floor! I asked the sales guy if they still had any Windows 7 machines. He brought me ov er to a rack with a half a dozen tags or so that you could bring to the cashier and they would get one of the remaining Windows 7 machines from the back but was told they have none "on the floor." And when the ones they have in the back we re gone that was it. No more Windows 7 machines would be available from that big box store. This time around I'm not so sure how long the older, proven Windows 7 operating systems are going to be available on new machines. So what exactly is wrong with Windows 8? Well, that's the real question now isn't it? Until the new system has had some time in the real world to shake out the bugs we r eally don't know what, if anything, is wrong with it. It may be the most stable system yet but one thing that is obvious at a glance is that Windows 8 is the most r adical operating system change since it went from W indows 3.1 to Windows 95. The biggest, most glaring change is that with Windows 8, Microsoft has seen fit to do away with the W indows start button (the button at the lower left corner of the desktop that first came out with Windows 95) and replace it with a new-fangled start screen that in no way resembles the start menu that we've been using for almost 20 y ears! It 's like they've decided that all machines are tablets now which they most certainly are not. Last week I answered my first call on a Windows 8 machine and I'll be honest, I wasn't prepared at all for what I encountered. I spent a considerable amount of time just looking around trying to find the familiar features, tools and controls that we've come to expect in Windows and found that (thankfully) most of the tools and features are still there, it's finding them that's the problem. After I successfully completed that call I did something I'd advised against oh so many times and went out and bought a machine with Windows 8 just so I would have a system to become familiar with. The You Tube videos just weren't going to cut it this time around. I'm happy to say that I can indeed support the new VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, NOV. 23, 2012 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM Laughingstock of the country?Once again, Florida and the Treasure Coast have lived up to its reputation as the capital of FloriDUH! Ha ven't we learned that counting votes correctly is essential? I mean, we've had how many years to learn? But, no, not us. It's time to kick out the incompetent officials and maybe get some third-graders in there. I'm sure they're more able to count since they have to pass the FCAT to move on. Maybe that's what we need for those officials who have royally screwed up the election. Test their ability to count.Be an educated voterI am in favor of uneducated Americans being tested before they are eligible to vote. My friend asked me, "What does secular mean?" I did my best to explain after the election, he had already voted. Sorry, too late now. I am very concerned that we will become a nation that will be secularized like they are in Europe. It means that man will believe in his own salvation and will reject the supernatural by a so-called new right during the 1980s. S ecularism is a belief that education, morality and the state should be independent of religion. To be secular would be to transfer from the control or use of the church to that of the state. I believe now more than ever we need to base our country on the values our forefathers built our country on in the past. I am sure you remember the pledge and Lord's Prayer in grade school and for those parents who were too busy, the teacher filled our hearts with pride; pride to produce not be entitled. Entitlement creates laziness. I visited a man from the UK and he is very disappointed in socialized medicine. Europe is bordering bankruptcy, experiencing riots and in need of more bailouts. The government of Europe is run by socialist misfits. In four years we are headed to a communist state. We must not let this happen educate our children with pride for the U.S. (T oo bad campaign money was not spent on the devastation of Hurricane Sandy up north.) In response to Land of rednecks'I have to ask the writer, do you know any the people you labeled as rednecks? I am from the north, as many are who live here, and I have seen the same if not worse from northerners be it in Florida or up north. Let's try not to label everyone.Same opportunities?Hmm, interesting how we elect the same president. Welcome to a socialist/Marxist government. For the people who ever-so-blindly voted for Obama, have you ever heard of no taxation without representation. Of course not. The only thing you were most were interested in was what are we getting for free? Well, when your food stamp doesn't buy you much that's the repercussions of it. No w I go to the library and see people of many nationalities. However, when I hear the black community complaining about how they don't get opportunities, well they're not going to go far in life when all they do is go to the library and get onto all the social websites, Facebook, or download music. Yeah, you're making real opportunity come to you. How would I know this? I see it quite a bit as I inhabit the libraries myself. These people don't want to apply themselves, but just cry because they don't want to acknowledge their own truth, they're flat out lazy. Why do I take the time to write this? maybe because I might strike a chord to one of these parasites. Well enough said. Hope these people realize what a drain they are to the economy, and that goes for the second and third generation baby factories who have kids to pay for their wellbeing as well. When I see a young gal with two or three kids in tow you know dang well she has a welfare career going. God I wish our governor would cut them off from producing.In response to, Does it matter who wins?' from Nov. 9I have unfairly received unwelcome glares and hurtful comments from strangers in public as a result of such angry, prejudiced sentiment. I appear as if I'm in my early 20s and have a toddler and a school-age boy out of wedlock. But, I actually earned my bachelor's degree, married and then had my two children. My husband divorced me after 10 years of marriage, which made money tighter. This writer could benefit from such a life lesson, a bad experience, financially. I don't know how he could handle it, since he puts so much importance on his ability to earn money. I suggest he consider spending less time with angry people and more time on introspect and Bible teachings. He does have one thing right, though. It doesn't matter who wins. Whoever wins, which in this case is Obama, we need to come together as Americans to support, not judge, and label fellow Americans as "kids having kids," "lazy with entitlement mentality" and "freeloaders" who only pay attention to "stupidity, commercials and reality shows."Use your librariesF or these all too-young mothers with their welfare kids: later on in life tell your kids, if you don't want them out to the streets before then, the way things go. Ya'll kick them to the streets when they're 13-14 years old, old enough to breed. Anyhow, the libraries have kids toddler reading programs that enlighten the young ones to story time, teach these kids to learn and not just run to the welfare office. Yes I see these young mothers come into the library and go straight to the computer to get onto Facebook or listen to their socalled music or play video games. Hey, if you look around there are books to actually educate yourself and maybe even learn. Wow, what a concept! Allow me to repeat myself: don't give the excuse you don't get opportunity. O pportunity is abundant in the public library. Too many of y ou just drain the government system of dollars that could be used better and for government workers. I don't know how you sleep at night. Maybe it's easy knowing you just have a five-day work week then you can just turn a blind eye. You're just as much as the problem, as w ell. Someday all this will catch up to these who just don't want to care at the moment and go with the flow. Eventually that flow changes with time. Show support for vetsV eterans often face real challenges as they return to civilian life. It is our obligation and our privilege to assist them. Americans should provide a continuous outpouring of support. More than 40,000 nonprofit organizations focus on helping veterans. Let's all get behind their efforts.Where was Clinton?H illary Clinton was subpoenaed to testify next week before Congress about her involvement with the four Americans' murdered in Benghazi on Sept. 11.She said can't make it. If y ou are ever subpoenaed into court and don't want to go, just follow her lead. Just say it is not convenient, that y ou will be out of town. See if that works for the regular public or just for the crooks running the country. Editor's note: H illary Clinton has not been subpoenaed to testify before Congress,though that idea is being proposed by I leana Ros-Lehtinen,House Foreign Affairs Committee chairwoman.At press time,Secretary Clinton was on a previously scheduled visit to Australia.Sluggish economy hurtsLowand middle-income blacks and Latinos are hurt disproportionately by a sluggish economy, which can be r evived by less government spending, fewer mandates, fewer rules and regulations and lower taxes. These people desperately need someone to care, to focus on their communities and explain the facts of life to them. Too bad our public schools fail to teach these truths anymore.

LUCIE Port S t. Lucie's Huntington Learning Center received a 35 year anniversary community service award at the 2010 Huntington national franchise convention, held October 20-22 in Orlando. There were 175 franchisees and staff and 25 corporate employees in attendance. "Our mission at Huntington is to give students the best education possible, to help them master skills so that they can succeed in school," said Craig P erry, Port St. Lucie Huntington Learning Center operator. "To be given an award for excellence in what we do is a great honor. We will continue to do our very best work so we can make a difference in as many Port St. Luciearea students' lives as possible." The 2010 Huntington national franchise convention provided a forum for H untington franchisees, staff and corporate employees to discuss curriculum, marketing and advertising strategies, 2011 goals and initiatives, and more. N ew board members for the Huntington advertising fund were also elected and all participants completed fundamentals of leadership training. S ince Huntington was founded in 1977, the company has grown to more than 350 learning centers in 42 states. H untington was also one of the first supplemental education service providers to provide federally funded tutoring services to students at underperforming schools through the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. The Huntington School Se r vices franchise has helped hundreds of school districts across the country improve their academic performances.

The project involved increasing the electricity output of the two nuclear reactors by replacing pipes, v alves, pumps, heat exchangers, electrical transformers and generators. It was done in conjunction with a similar project at the Tu r key Point plant in south F lorida, and cost approximately $1 billion. Florida Pow er & Light brought in about 4,000 additional contractors to help with the project, which took about three y ears to complete. The materials are more efficient," Mr. Hoffman said. "J ust getting the equipment here and moving it into place was a monumental feat." The company transported some materials to the plant in the middle of the night, when traffic was decreased, using large trucks with numerous wheels to be able to maneuver around roundabouts and smaller corners. They also used barges to bring large items to the plant by water. In addition, more than 4,000 additional contractors we re brought in to help with the project. The majority of the contractors were temporary craft workers, including welders, carpenters and electricians," said Doug Andrews, the site communication supervisor. The updates for unit 1 were completed in July and the update for unit 2 is expected to be completed shortly. The upgrades were made during planned outages at the plant. The plant shuts down the reactors on a scheduled basis in order to upgrade equipment and make repairs. This upgrade, however, involved replacing some of the original components of the plant. This will allow us to generate more power safely," Mr. Andrews said. "So we will be able to increase the power output without increasing the size of the plant." U pgrades for both of the units will provide an additional 300 megawatts to the total output, to bring the ov erall output of the plant to more than 1,000 megawatts. That means the plant can safely supply power to an additional 150,000 homes. It is also expected to r educe annual fossil fuel costs by approximately $3 billion over the life of the upgrades.

Over in Tradition, holiday events are in full swing on De c. 1 with the lighting of the holiday tree and menor ah. There will be entertainment and food vendors and the fun takes place from 6 p .m. to 8 p.m., with Santa making an appearance during that time. Fireworks will finish the evening. Fo rt Pierce starts the holiday season with a holiday festival open house and art sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Nov. 30 and from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the A.E. Backus M useum and Gallery, located at 500 Indian River Drive. A dmission is free to the event, which will feature numerous local artists. On Dec. 2, Fort Pierce picks up the holiday spirit with "Sights & Sounds on S econd," the all-day Christmas festival and parade that takes place in historic downtown Fort Pierce. The theme this year is the "12 Days of Christmas," and the events begin at 10:30 a.m. with a church service by C ommon Grounds Vineyard Church.

If yo u' re heading somewhere that doesn't have snow on the ground, there may be a chance that you're taking your clubs. After all, what's a holiday without a r ound or three of golf? There is also the chance that you may leave the sticks at home and rent a set at the course. This is always a good idea if the thought of y ou playing golf while with the family on a holiday trip isn't likely to be met with unbridled enthusiasm by the family. The last time I went to visit family and rented a set, I was a little less than excited by what I saw in the bag. While I wasn't expecting a $1,000 set of rental clubs, I was hoping for something a little better than I what I wound up with. My set consisted of a pretty good driver, a model from about a half-decade ago. The fairway woods we re one of the first steel headed woods of their kind. The grips must have been original as they were as hard as my head and slick as ice. The irons were a mixedmatch of three or four different brands and two of the wedges were the same loft. The putter came from a miniature golf course. You know, the ones with the plastic heads. Only five or six of the clubs in this set had grips that I could actually hold onto. I should have suspected something was up when the course only charged me $5 to rent them. S omewhere on the front nine I decided that no matter how hard it was, the next time I traveled and intended to play golf, my trusty sticks were coming with me. A friend of mine who listened to my rant about the clubs I rented had a simple solution. If you're driving, take all the clubs out of your bag and place them in the trunk or back of the van. If necessary, bring only half the set. I could have easily found a spot for my driver, putter, a wedge, a hybrid and four irons. I shook my head at how stupid I was for not thinking of that at the time. If y ou actually have the r oom, packing your clubs can be a breeze. Just use a lot of common sense and think light, especially when yo u' re flying to your destination. T ake as light a golf bag as possible. Many seasoned golf travelers have a light carry bag, one that fits easily into their travel bag. Make sure that the travel bag is easily identifiable. When shopping for a travel cover, look for one that has room for that extra long driver, y our shoes, a sweater or a jacket and maybe even a change of clothes. The airlines will no longer allow y ou to lock your checked bags, so take a thorough inventory of what's in the bag. T ake your golf balls out of y our bag and pack them in y our suitcase. This saves a tremendous amount of w eight. To trim even more, leave the balls at home and buy them when you get to the course. To prevent your clubs from clanking and scratching, wrap your towels around the heads and put the rain cover on. To help protect that extra-long driver, cut a broom handle down to about two inches longer than your driver and place it in the golf bag. This puts any pressure on the broom handle and not your precious clubs. Cut a hole in a tennis ball and use it to cover the end so that the handle won't rip through the bag. While waiting for your luggage in the baggage claim area, find out where the oversized bags are unloaded. Bags that are too big for the carousels are often brought out separately and staged in a different area. If yo u' re r enting a car, look around for the rental counters when you get to the baggage claim area. M ost travelers retrieve their luggage and then head for the rental car counters, which tend to get busy all at once. It's a good idea to consider getting your car first. Chances are the line will be shorter and it's a lot better than watching strange luggage go around and around and around. Whatever you do when traveling, be sure to call the course first if you are depending on them for clubs to play your round with. Golf is difficult enough without having to use equipment that's impossible to play with.

10ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2012GIFT GUIDE Shoppers urged to remain alert this season ST. LUCIE COUNTY While everyone is busy tackling their holiday lists, area law enforcement has some suggestions to keep the holidays safer. P eople are more attracted during the holiday season, said Sgt. Chris Cicio, who is part of the St. Lucie C ounty Sheriffs Office crime prevention unit. The first place people should be aware is while shopping. B eing alert and aware of your surr oundings is important, Sgt. Cicio said. R esidents should only carry only what they need in their purse or wallet. Also, always carry the purse. Ne ver leave it in a shopping cart. Another suggestion is to park in w ell-traveled areas. W ith the time change, darkness will come sooner, he said. Carry a lighted keychain and a whistle, and try to park in lighted areas. He also said never assume you are alone. P lacing your purse, wallet or purchases in your vehicles trunk may seem safe, but not if someone is watching you do it, he said. I f you place your packages in the trunk but are planning to keep shopping, move your car to a different location in the parking lot so someone watching thinks youve left. Children should also be informed of safety issues when shopping. H ave a conversation with them about wandering off, and what to do if they become separated from an adult, he said. B ut its not just while shopping that r esidents need to be careful. Holiday safety is important at home, as well. T ake time to inventory valuables. The sheriffs office recommends engraving them with the owners driver license number. This greatly increases the chance of recovery, should the item be stolen, Sgt. Cicio said. He also suggests homeowners keep a list of valuables, complete with make, model, serial numbers and a photo in a separate location in case of a home burglary. If a homeowner plans to be away for a period of three days or more, they can call the crime prevention unit at (772) 871-5303 and request a deputy check on their home while they are away. Also, make a point to stop the mail and paper delivery, close your blinds and even play a radio so a potential burglar will hear voices. In the end, it boils down to trusting y our instincts. I f your gut tells you something is wrong, listen to it, he said.

15ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2012GIFT GUIDE Holiday program helps struggling seniors enjoy the season TREASURE COAST With so many older adults living alone and in poverty, some Treasure Coast seniors will undoubtedly be struggling to make ends meet this holiday season. Thats why the area Home Instead S enior Care office has partnered with r etailers and community organizations to make sure isolated seniors r eceive gifts and companionship through the Be a Santa to a Senior program. S eniors faced with medical bills and the high cost of living can find they have little left at the end of the y ear, said Patricia Strickland, coo wner with her husband, Michael, of the Home Instead Senior Care office serving St. Lucie and Martin counties. Thats not the only issue, though. P ersonal needs may become magnified for so many living alone with no one to share their problems. A ccording to the U.S. Census Bur eau, 9 percent of U.S. seniors 65 and older are living in poverty and 27 percent are widowed. W ith the support of Butterfields P harmacy & Medical Supplies and the C ouncil on Aging of St. Lucies Mealson-Wheels program, volunteers, members of the community and the local Home Instead Senior Care office will collect and distribute gifts to seniors who might otherwise spend the holiday alone. The Be a Santa to a Senior program will kicked off Nov. 15 at a special event at Butterfields Pharmacy & M edical Supplies on Saint Lucie West Bl vd and will run through Dec. 17. Christmas trees, which will go up at B utterfields in Port St. Lucie and Fort Pierce, as well as at Abingdon at Tradition, 10685 S.W. Stony Creek Way in Po rt S t. Lucie, will feature ornaments with the first names of the seniors and their respective gift requests. H oliday shoppers are asked to pick up an ornament, buy items on the list and return them unwrapped to the store, along with the ornament attached. The Home Instead Senior Care office will then enlist the volunteer help of its staff, senior-care business associates, nonprofit workers and others to collect, wrap and distribute the gifts. B e a Santa to a Senior is another way to say thank you to the many seniors who have made such important contributions to our community throughout the years, said Ms. Strickland. Helping a needy older adult can bring fulfillment to the giver as well as the receiver.It does make a difference.

The event r aised $13,134 during the one night event for Abby, who is battling stage four Hodgkin's Lymphoma.File photo see B.B. King in concert on Jan. 4 at the S unrise Theatre in Fort Pierce. Tickets start at $65. U pcoming musical shows in January at the Sunrise Theatre include Natalie C ole, Englebert Humperdinck and V ince Gill, to name only a few. How about the members of your family who like to watch live performances? There is a large variety in St. Lucie C ounty to choose from. In Fo rt Pierce, the Pineapple Playhouse will perform the play "Small Talk" during January. Also, the McAlpin Fine Arts Center at Indian River State College will feature the musical comedy "Broadway's Next H!T Musical." S unrise Theatre has a number of live performances in January, including The Nutopians Celebrating the Music of John Lennon," "Cinderella," presented by the State Ballet Theatre of Russia, The Barber of Seville" and the National T ouring Company's production of M onty Python's "Spamalot." If y ou are looking to surprise someone with an experience of a more outdoorsy kind, the Savannas Preserve S tate Park is offering guided kayak tours for $10, which offers a special guided tour of the park by water. Interested residents would have to supply their own kayak, but it offers a completely different view of the park. "K ayak guides are trained in the ecology of the Savannas and have a diverse set of knowledge that they love to share," said Debra Goodrich, one of the organizers of the event. These tours fill up quickly." There is even a full moon paddle on De c. 28 for $15, where kayakers can experience the waters at night.

8ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2012GIFT GUIDE Look to small businesses for unique gifts ST. LUCIE COUNTY For that hard-to-shop-for person on your holiday list, look no further than the multitude of small businesses in St. L ucie County. In Fo rt Pierce, the downtown area has a large variety of small businesses to peruse, offering everything from jewelry to items for the home to personal services.

One of the trends the store offers is called the Karisma line, where bracelets, rings, earrings, bangles and pendants are available with interchangeable jewels in the center of the piece that can be replaced with different ones to match a style or mood. "S ilver jewelry with gold accents is also popular this year," said Jan Russell, the owner. "It keeps the price r easonable, while giving the customer that gold look."

10ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2012GIFT GUIDE Shoppers urged to remain alert this season ST. LUCIE COUNTY While everyone is busy tackling their holiday lists, area law enforcement has some suggestions to keep the holidays safer. "P eople are more attracted during the holiday season," said Sgt. Chris Cicio, who is part of the St. Lucie C ounty Sheriff's Office crime prevention unit. The first place people should be aware is while shopping. "B eing alert and aware of your surr oundings is important," Sgt. Cicio said. R esidents should only carry only what they need in their purse or wallet. Also, always carry the purse. Ne ver leave it in a shopping cart. Another suggestion is to park in w ell-traveled areas. "W ith the time change, darkness will come sooner," he said. "Carry a lighted keychain and a whistle, and try to park in lighted areas." He also said never assume you are alone. "P lacing your purse, wallet or purchases in your vehicle's trunk may seem safe, but not if someone is watching you do it," he said. "I f you place your packages in the trunk but are planning to keep shopping, move your car to a different location in the parking lot so someone watching thinks you've left." Children should also be informed of safety issues when shopping. "H ave a conversation with them about wandering off, and what to do if they become separated from an adult," he said. B ut it's not just while shopping that r esidents need to be careful. Holiday safety is important at home, as well. T ake time to inventory valuables. The sheriff's office recommends engraving them with the owner's driver license number. This greatly increases the chance of recovery, should the item be stolen," Sgt. Cicio said. He also suggests homeowners keep a list of valuables, complete with make, model, serial numbers and a photo in a separate location in case of a home burglary. If a homeowner plans to be away for a period of three days or more, they can call the crime prevention unit at (772) 871-5303 and request a deputy check on their home while they are away. Also, make a point to stop the mail and paper delivery, close your blinds and even play a radio so a potential burglar will hear voices. In the end, it boils down to trusting y our instincts. "I f your gut tells you something is wrong, listen to it," he said.

15ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2012GIFT GUIDE Holiday program helps struggling seniors enjoy the season TREASURE COAST With so many older adults living alone and in poverty, some Treasure Coast seniors will undoubtedly be struggling to make ends meet this holiday season. That's why the area Home Instead S enior Care office has partnered with r etailers and community organizations to make sure isolated seniors r eceive gifts and companionship through the "Be a Santa to a Senior" program. "S eniors faced with medical bills and the high cost of living can find they have little left at the end of the y ear," said Patricia Strickland, coo wner with her husband, Michael, of the Home Instead Senior Care office serving St. Lucie and Martin counties. That's not the only issue, though. P ersonal needs may become magnified for so many living alone with no one to share their problems." A ccording to the U.S. Census Bu r eau, 9 percent of U.S. seniors 65 and older are living in poverty and 27 percent are widowed. W ith the support of Butterfield's P harmacy & Medical Supplies and the C ouncil on Aging of St. Lucie's Mealson-Wheels program, volunteers, members of the community and the local Home Instead Senior Care office will collect and distribute gifts to seniors who might otherwise spend the holiday alone. The Be a Santa to a Senior program will kicked off Nov. 15 at a special event at Butterfield's Pharmacy & M edical Supplies on Saint Lucie West Bl vd and will run through Dec. 17. Christmas trees, which will go up at B utterfield's in Port St. Lucie and Fort Pierce, as well as at Abingdon at Tradition, 10685 S.W. Stony Creek Way in Po rt S t. Lucie, will feature ornaments with the first names of the seniors and their respective gift requests. H oliday shoppers are asked to pick up an ornament, buy items on the list and return them unwrapped to the store, along with the ornament attached. The Home Instead Senior Care office will then enlist the volunteer help of its staff, senior-care business associates, nonprofit workers and others to collect, wrap and distribute the gifts. "B e a Santa to a Senior is another way to say thank you to the many seniors who have made such important contributions to our community throughout the years," said Ms. Strickland. "Helping a needy older adult can bring fulfillment to the giver as well as the receiver.It does make a difference."

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals urged city officials to inspect the animals. No code violations were found.Circus animals safety is priority for manyPORT ST. LUCIE When the circus came to town the weekend of Nov. 15-17, the activist group P eople for the Ethical Tr eatment of Animals, was close behind. Earlier in November, D elcianna Winders, director of captive animal law enforcement for PETA, sent a letter to city officials asking them to inspect the animals used in the Cole Br os. circus acts. On Nov. 16, the city r eported code enforcement personnel found no violations at the event. Animals have always been a part of the traditional, American-style circus, said Bill Carter, one of the marketing directors for C ole Brothers circus, and theyve always been a part of our show. Mr. Carter stressed the animals safety is a priority for the circus. The exotic animals are all under federal jurisdiction and all the animal handlers are federally licensed, he said. The circus was previously fined $15,000 by the U.S. D epartment of Agriculture for its treatment of two elephants, which were r emoved from the circus care in 2009. I was glad to learn that the city of Port St. Lucie is taking seriously its duties to enforce animal control ordinances, said Ms. W inders in a press release. S he urged the city council to use an independent exotic-animal expert to help inspect the animals used in the performances in the city. While city officials didnt call in an exotic-animal expert, they stated code enforcement would conduct an inspection. W e will have code enforcement there, absolutely, said Ed Cunningham, communications director for the city of Po rt S t. Lucie. B ut they are only going to look for city code violations. The animal inspections can only be done by the U.S. Department of Agriculture or Florida Fish and Wildlife. The USDA makes r equired inspections of circuses several times a year, looking at both the animals and the records of animal care. In 2011, a bill was introduced to Congress the T ra velling Exotic Animal Pr otection Act, which, if Sevin Bullwinkle/staff photographerIts elephant feeding time at Digital Domain Park on Thurs., Nov. 15.

C ANDY & CAKE SUPPLIES 048168The vertebrae or backbone are a series of bones that support and protect the spinal cord.In between these vertebrae are disks that cushion the bones and act as spacers between the vertebrae.These disks can herniate or protrude into the spinal column causing pain and neurologic deficits.This tends to occur in middle aged to older, small, long back breeds.The most overly represented breed is the dachshund, but this syndrome can occur in all breeds including the larger breeds.We see an average of 3 cases a week in our practice. The clinical signs can range from mild back pain to complete paralysis.Typically a dog will present with the complaint that it is not jumping up on the couch as usual, and cries when picked up.Often the owner will say their appetite is less and they may be reluctant to go to the bathroom.This occurs because the back and neck are painful and the dog is reluctant to bend to eat, or assume the position to defecate or urinate.On the physical examination there may be conscious proprioceptive deficits, weakness especially in the rear legs, and pain when the neck is manipulated or the back palpated.CP deficits are documented when the toes are turned with the topside down.The dog should immediately right the foot to the proper position.A delay signifies and interruption in the signal from the foot to the brain.More serious clinical signs include dragging the rear legs, crossing of the rear legs when walking, and a frog legged stance. Diagnosis is made on clinical signs, and occasionally with radiogr aphy.The more serious cases are referred to a veterinary neurologist who will perform myelograms, or an MRI to identify the exact location of the herniated disk. T reatment depends on the severity of signs.Early cases are treated with cage rest and steroids or non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, m uscle relaxants, pain medication, and intravenous polyethylene glycol.We have a therapeutic laser machine that is a wonderful treatment modality.The light laser is anti-inflammatory, and relieves pain. This is also used post surgery to speed up recovery.A study at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine showed that paralyzed dogs that received post operative laser therapy walked an av erage of 5 days post op versus dogs that didnt that walked an av erage of 17 days later.There are no side effects and we use it e xtensively in the treatment of iv disk disease.Surgery is recommended by a board certified neurologist if there is significant paresis or weakness in the legs, or if the dog is very painful and does not respond to medical treatment.Prognosis depends on the severity of the herniation, how soon after the occurrence of the disk herniation the dog is seen by a veterinarian, and how aggressively the dog is treated.Surgery involves removal of the disk, and occasionally making a window in the vertebrae to make room for the disk material. Prevention entails keeping the dog physically fit, as overweight dogs have a much higher incidence of intervertebral disk disease.I try to discourage clients with predisposed breeds to allow them to get on couches and beds as puppies.It is much easier to train them not to do this than to try and keep them off a bed after the condition develops.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY For more than 60 years, AT&T and the AT&T Foundation have been strong supporters of the United Way, both at national and local levels. T oday, AT&T continues this legacy of support through a contribution of $6,000 to U nited Way of St. Lucie C ounty. In 2012 alone, AT&T gave $5.77 million to 574 local U nited Ways across the country. The United Way of St. L ucie County will use the contribution to support programs that create longlasting change in the local community. The United Way is dedicated to improving lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities around the world to advance the common good, as is evident from the work the United W ay is doing in Florida. In 2012, the United Way of S t. Lucie County, and volunteers, raised more than $1 million to support programs that center on education, income and health. Last year alone, more than 4,400 St. Lucie County children were given school supplies to start the school year. N early 8,000 dental screenings have been performed throughout 12 St. Lucie C ounty elementary schools with more than 14,000 tooth brushes distributed to youth in pre-K to second grade. The United Way of St. L ucie Counties efforts, coupled with the ongoing support of the community, has provided thousands of families throughout the county with the resources they need to live a better life. U nited Way of St. Lucie C ounty has transformed into an organization that not only raises dollars for selected health and human service programs, but is proactive in identifying unacceptable community conditions and then focuses its many resources on creating and supporting initiatives that work to improve those conditions,said Brad G uffin, United Way of St. L ucie County board chairman. We attribute our success to our donors, to our volunteers who have given of their time and talents, to our community partners and to the health and human service agencies we support. In addition to this contribution, each year AT&T employees take part in an employee giving campaign that provides millions to the U nited Way. In 2011, AT&T employees, including employee members of the Communication Wor kers of America, the I nternational Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and the T elecommunications International Union, pledged $33.8 million through this campaign. A T&T shares United W ays commitment to strengthening communities and improving lives, said C athy McKenzie, who handles legislative and external affairs for AT&T Florida. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, November 23, 2012 Po rt St. Lucie A11 769620 AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMAll Around Gymnastics2012/2013 SCHOOL YEARFor Boys &Girls!

ST. LUCIE COUNTY The community is invited to participate in the second annual "Take Back the N ight," an event to help r aise awareness and shatter the silence for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence. The event will be held on De c. 7 from 7-10 p.m. at the dance studio of Tryst Downtown, 305 Orange Ave., Fort Pierce, which has donated its space. A clearinghouse of support agencies will be on hand to answer questions and distribute literature and information on services and r esources. Local teenage girls who have been affected by sexual violence have hand-decor ated T-shirts with personal expressions and artwork. The shirts will be strung on a clothesline suspended in the space as part of the Clothesline Project. The Clothesline Project is a program started in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women by offering a vehicle for women and girls affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. They then hang the shirt on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women. A march through downtown Fort Pierce will be followed by a candlelight vigil and speak out for victims of sexual violence to share their stories. The event is free and open to the public. One in every three women is the victim of a sexual assault, often at the hands of someone she knows and loves. Whether it is in the form of incest, date-rape, intimate partner violence or sexual assault by a stranger, without the community's awareness, it will continue to happen. "She might be your sister, y our daughter, your niece or even you. Shes a victim of a crime we dont speak about comfortably and shes probably suffering in a silence that could ruin her life," said M indi Fetterman, the event's organizer. "It's important that victims break the silence and know that there are local r esources that she or he can turn to. Y ou dont have to be victim of sexual violence or even know someone who has been, though chances are you do know someone who hasnt shared it yet. The event is sponsored by the I nner Truth Project.

Theres no major prer equisite to donating the bike, said Pat Patregnani, founder and chairman/CEO, which has its flagship store in Stuart.You can come in and purchase a 50-cent item. We will donate a bike to a child in your name. The bikes are suitable for boys and girls, ages 7-10. B ottom line is if you look at our personal history its always been about growing the sport. Where better an opportunity to grow the sport than to get children back out riding bikes? Mr. Patregnani said. The bike giveaway is the latest philanthropic venture for the Juno-based company, which opened eight area stores in November. This month it donated $10,000 to Habitat for H umanitys Women Build project and contributed $5,000 to a ride to support families displaced by natur al disasters. Mr. Patregnani said his nonprofit, zMotion, has r aised millions for Florida nonprofitsThe retail value of the bikes, plus expenses promoting the giveaway, brings its total costs to about $270,000. B ikeStreet USA is working with 10 charities in Mar tin, St. Lucie and Palm B each to help identify children for the bike donations. I t s simple, no child should be without a bike, Mr. Patregnani said in a press release. As passionate cyclists, my team and I understand and appreciate the things that cycling has done for us in our lives and we want to make sure every child has the same opportunity to have that feeling.

Editors note: This is a list of arrests,not convictions, and all arrestees are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty in a court of law. I carefully considered the pleadings, Judge Vaughn said. For what its worth, I appreciate the significance of this. He also stated he read the transcript of the Palm Beach C ounty court proceeding, where the congressman was denied an injunction on Nov. 9 to impound the countys voting machines and ballots there. I n my view, Mr. West and the other plaintiffs have not established sufficient evidence, Judge Vaughn said. He w ent on to state he simply doesnt have the authority to grant the request under the circumstances. He also stressed his decisions should not affect future actions of the countys canvassing board who met later that afternoon. This cannot bind the canvassing board, Judge V aughn said. I trust that they are aware of their duties and obligations. At their meeting, the board decided to recount all the early voting ballots, and began early on the morning of Nov. 17. They reconvened to finish on Nov. 18 and according to an employee in the supervisor of elections office, were able to send the final results to the state in time to meet the Nov. 18 noon deadline. In the Nov. 6 election, C ongressman West lost by 0.8 percent of the total votes. In the unofficial results, C ongressman West received 157,872 votes or 49.6 percent to Mr. Murphys 160, 328 or 50.4 percent, a difference of 2,456 votes. In S t. Lucie County, the congressional race was part of a retabulation of ballots the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections conducted on Nov. 11, because some issues, such as the memory cards that were being used on certain days, did not transfer the data like they we re supposed to. The canvassing board only retabulated the early ballots that were cast from Nov. 1 through Nov. 3, which we re the early voting days in question. As a result of the retabulation, Congressman West lost 132 votes in St. Lucie, while Mr. Murphy lost 667. But while the gap between the two candidates closed slightly, it was still a .57 percent difference, and wasnt enough to trigger an automatic recount, which r equires one half of one percent or less. On Nov. 13, Rep. West filed a lawsuit demanding a r ecount of all the early votes in St. Lucie County. The county canvassing board had to certify the final r esults by noon on Nov. 18 and the state issued its final certification numbers by Nov. 20. Re p. W est is currently in W ashington, D.C., serving in C ongress, while Mr. Murphy r eturned to his temporary office in Palm Beach Gardens after finishing orientation in Washington, D.C.RecountF rom page A4

In the past, whenever M icrosoft released a new operating system, I have always advised people not to jump on the band wagon r ight away but rather stay with their proven operating system for as long as possible (a year or more) to give the folks at Microsoft enough time to work out all the bugs that get submitted after the new operating system has been released into the wild. S ometimes the transition goes smoothly (as it did with the transition to W indows XP) and sometimes the transition is a disaster (as it was with W indows ME) but in the past, it was always fairly easy to find new machines r unning the older, more proven operating systems and wait until they got all the bugs fixed on the new system before making a change. This strategy helped many people avoid the Windows Vista fiasco several years ago and instead transition straight into the more stable W indows 7. W ell here we are just a couple weeks after the r elease of Windows 8 and Im afraid the strategy of waiting a goodly amount of time for them to prove the new system in the real world just might be limited this time around. Y ou see, just a few days after the release of Windows 8 I ventured down to the local big-box office supply store to have a look and was r eally surprised to find only W indows 8 machines on the floor! I asked the sales guy if they still had any Windows 7 machines. He brought me ov er to a rack with a half a dozen tags or so that you could bring to the cashier and they would get one of the remaining Windows 7 machines from the back but was told they have none on the floor. And when the ones they have in the back we re gone that was it. No more Windows 7 machines would be available from that big box store. This time around Im not so sure how long the older, proven Windows 7 operating systems are going to be available on new machines. So what exactly is wrong with Windows 8? Well, thats the real question now isnt it? Until the new system has had some time in the real world to shake out the bugs we r eally dont know what, if anything, is wrong with it. It may be the most stable system yet but one thing that is obvious at a glance is that Windows 8 is the most r adical operating system change since it went from W indows 3.1 to Windows 95. The biggest, most glaring change is that with Windows 8, Microsoft has seen fit to do away with the W indows start button (the button at the lower left corner of the desktop that first came out with Windows 95) and replace it with a new-fangled start screen that in no way resembles the start menu that weve been using for almost 20 y ears! It s like theyve decided that all machines are tablets now which they most certainly are not. Last week I answered my first call on a Windows 8 machine and Ill be honest, I wasnt prepared at all for what I encountered. I spent a considerable amount of time just looking around trying to find the familiar features, tools and controls that weve come to expect in Windows and found that (thankfully) most of the tools and features are still there, its finding them thats the problem. After I successfully completed that call I did something Id advised against oh so many times and went out and bought a machine with Windows 8 just so I would have a system to become familiar with. The You Tube videos just werent going to cut it this time around. Im happy to say that I can indeed support the new VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, NOV. 23, 2012 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM Laughingstock of the country?Once again, Florida and the Treasure Coast have lived up to its reputation as the capital of FloriDUH! Ha vent we learned that counting votes correctly is essential? I mean, weve had how many years to learn? But, no, not us. Its time to kick out the incompetent officials and maybe get some third-graders in there. Im sure theyre more able to count since they have to pass the FCAT to move on. Maybe thats what we need for those officials who have royally screwed up the election. Test their ability to count.Be an educated voterI am in favor of uneducated Americans being tested before they are eligible to vote. My friend asked me, "What does secular mean?" I did my best to explain after the election, he had already voted. Sorry, too late now. I am very concerned that we will become a nation that will be secularized like they are in Europe. It means that man will believe in his own salvation and will reject the supernatural by a so-called new right during the 1980s. S ecularism is a belief that education, morality and the state should be independent of religion. To be secular would be to transfer from the control or use of the church to that of the state. I believe now more than ever we need to base our country on the values our forefathers built our country on in the past. I am sure you remember the pledge and Lord's Prayer in grade school and for those parents who were too busy, the teacher filled our hearts with pride; pride to produce not be entitled. Entitlement creates laziness. I visited a man from the UK and he is very disappointed in socialized medicine. Europe is bordering bankruptcy, experiencing riots and in need of more bailouts. The government of Europe is run by socialist misfits. In four years we are headed to a communist state. We must not let this happen educate our children with pride for the U.S. (T oo bad campaign money was not spent on the devastation of Hurricane Sandy up north.) In response to Land of rednecksI have to ask the writer, do you know any the people you labeled as rednecks? I am from the north, as many are who live here, and I have seen the same if not worse from northerners be it in Florida or up north. Let's try not to label everyone.Same opportunities?Hmm, interesting how we elect the same president. Welcome to a socialist/Marxist government. For the people who ever-so-blindly voted for Obama, have you ever heard of no taxation without representation. Of course not. The only thing you were most were interested in was what are we getting for free? Well, when your food stamp doesnt buy you much thats the repercussions of it. Now I go to the library and see people of many nationalities. However, when I hear the black community complaining about how they dont get opportunities, well they're not going to go far in life when all they do is go to the library and get onto all the social websites, Facebook, or download music. Yeah, youre making real opportunity come to you. How would I know this? I see it quite a bit as I inhabit the libraries myself. These people dont want to apply themselves, but just cry because they dont want to acknowledge their own truth, theyre flat out lazy. Why do I take the time to write this? maybe because I might strike a chord to one of these parasites. Well enough said. Hope these people realize what a drain they are to the economy, and that goes for the second and third generation baby factories who have kids to pay for their wellbeing as well. When I see a young gal with two or three kids in tow you know dang well she has a welfare career going. God I wish our governor would cut them off from producing.In response to, Does it matter who wins? from Nov. 9I have unfairly received unwelcome glares and hurtful comments from strangers in public as a result of such angry, prejudiced sentiment. I appear as if I'm in my early 20s and have a toddler and a school-age boy out of wedlock. But, I actually earned my bachelors degree, married and then had my two children. My husband divorced me after 10 years of marriage, which made money tighter. This writer could benefit from such a life lesson, a bad experience, financially. I don't know how he could handle it, since he puts so much importance on his ability to earn money. I suggest he consider spending less time with angry people and more time on introspect and Bible teachings. He does have one thing right, though. It doesn't matter who wins. Whoever wins, which in this case is Obama, we need to come together as Americans to support, not judge, and label fellow Americans as "kids having kids," "lazy with entitlement mentality" and "freeloaders" who only pay attention to "stupidity, commercials and reality shows."Use your librariesF or these all too-young mothers with their welfare kids: later on in life tell your kids, if you dont want them out to the streets before then, the way things go. Ya'll kick them to the streets when theyre 13-14 years old, old enough to breed. Anyhow, the libraries have kids toddler reading programs that enlighten the young ones to story time, teach these kids to learn and not just run to the welfare office. Yes I see these young mothers come into the library and go straight to the computer to get onto Facebook or listen to their socalled music or play video games. Hey, if you look around there are books to actually educate yourself and maybe even learn. Wow, what a concept! Allow me to repeat myself: dont give the excuse you dont get opportunity. O pportunity is abundant in the public library. Too many of y ou just drain the government system of dollars that could be used better and for government workers. I dont know how you sleep at night. Maybe its easy knowing you just have a five-day work week then you can just turn a blind eye. Youre just as much as the problem, as w ell. Someday all this will catch up to these who just dont want to care at the moment and go with the flow. Eventually that flow changes with time. Show support for vetsV eterans often face real challenges as they return to civilian life. It is our obligation and our privilege to assist them. Americans should provide a continuous outpouring of support. More than 40,000 nonprofit organizations focus on helping veterans. Let's all get behind their efforts.Where was Clinton?H illary Clinton was subpoenaed to testify next week before Congress about her involvement with the four Americans' murdered in Benghazi on Sept. 11.She said can't make it. If you are ever subpoenaed into court and don't want to go, just follow her lead. Just say it is not convenient, that y ou will be out of town. See if that works for the regular public or just for the crooks running the country. Editors note: H illary Clinton has not been subpoenaed to testify before Congress,though that idea is being proposed by Ileana Ros-Lehtinen,House Foreign Affairs Committee chairwoman.At press time,Secretary Clinton was on a previously scheduled visit to Australia.Sluggish economy hurtsLowand middle-income blacks and Latinos are hurt disproportionately by a sluggish economy, which can be r evived by less government spending, fewer mandates, fewer rules and regulations and lower taxes. These people desperately need someone to care, to focus on their communities and explain the facts of life to them. Too bad our public schools fail to teach these truths anymore. Our republic suffers and the less fortunate suffer from the peoples' ignorance. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or email news@hometownnewsol.com.

The project involved increasing the electricity output of the two nuclear reactors by replacing pipes, v alves, pumps, heat exchangers, electrical transformers and generators. It was done in conjunction with a similar project at the Tur key Point plant in south F lorida, and cost approximately $1 billion. Florida Pow er & Light brought in about 4,000 additional contractors to help with the project, which took about three y ears to complete. The materials are more efficient, Mr. Hoffman said. J ust getting the equipment here and moving it into place was a monumental feat. The company transported some materials to the plant in the middle of the night, when traffic was decreased, using large trucks with numerous wheels to be able to maneuver around roundabouts and smaller corners. They also used barges to bring large items to the plant by water. In addition, more than 4,000 additional contractors we re brought in to help with the project. The majority of the contractors were temporary craft workers, including welders, carpenters and electricians, said Doug Andrews, the site communication supervisor. The updates for unit 1 were completed in July and the update for unit 2 is expected to be completed shortly. The upgrades were made during planned outages at the plant. The plant shuts down the reactors on a scheduled basis in order to upgrade equipment and make repairs. This upgrade, however, involved replacing some of the original components of the plant. This will allow us to generate more power safely, Mr. Andrews said. So we will be able to increase the power output without increasing the size of the plant. U pgrades for both of the units will provide an additional 300 megawatts to the total output, to bring the ov erall output of the plant to more than 1,000 megawatts. That means the plant can safely supply power to an additional 150,000 homes. It is also expected to r educe annual fossil fuel costs by approximately $3 billion over the life of the upgrades.

Over in Tradition, holiday events are in full swing on De c. 1 with the lighting of the holiday tree and menor ah. There will be entertainment and food vendors and the fun takes place from 6 p .m. to 8 p.m., with Santa making an appearance during that time. Fireworks will finish the evening. Fo rt Pierce starts the holiday season with a holiday festival open house and art sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Nov. 30 and from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the A.E. Backus M useum and Gallery, located at 500 Indian River Drive. A dmission is free to the event, which will feature numerous local artists. On Dec. 2, Fort Pierce picks up the holiday spirit with Sights & Sounds on S econd, the all-day Christmas festival and parade that takes place in historic downtown Fort Pierce. The theme this year is the Days of Christmas, and the events begin at 10:30 a.m. with a church service by C ommon Grounds Vineyard Church. Afterward, the Sights and S ounds festival begins at 1 p .m. and runs through 4:30 p .m. There will be childrens crafts, games, bounce houses, art and craft vendors. Santa will make an appearance at 1:30 p.m. and Ronald McDonald will visit at 3:30 p.m. The Christmas parade will begin at 4:30 p.m. at T ickle Tummy Hill, then travel south on Second Str eet to Orange Avenue, turn east to Indian River Dr ive, then head north to finish at the Riverwalk Center. After the parade, Fort Pierces community Christmas tree, located at the r oundabout, will be lit. The holiday light spectacular, a light and sound show featuring more than 100,000 light synchronized to holiday music, will begin at Marina Square following the tree-lighting ceremony. The light show will run every night from 6 p.m. to 9 p .m. through Jan. 6. The estimated cost of the holiday tree lighting and the light show is estimated to be approximately $50,000. In years past, business owners and city residents donated to the event. The community has been wonderful in stepping up in the past to help offset the cost of the tree and the lights, said Anne Satterlee, communications and marketing manager for the city of Fort Pierce. W e look forward to working with everyone again this year. Any donation would be greatly appreciated.

Ther e is also the chance that y ou may leave the sticks at home and r ent a set at the course This is always a good idea if the thought of y ou playing golf while with the family on a holiday tr ip isn t likely to be met with unbr idled enthusiasm b y the family The last time I w ent to visit family and r ented a set, I was a little less than ex cited by what I saw in the bag. While I wasn t expecting a $1,000 set of r ental clubs I was hoping for something a little better than I what I wound up with. My set consisted of a pr etty good dr iver a model fr om about a half-decade ago The fair way woods we re one of the first steel headed woods of their kind. The gr ips must have been or iginal as they w er e as har d as my head and slick as ice The ir ons w er e a mixedmatch of thr ee or four differ ent br ands and two of the w edges w er e the same loft. The putter came fr om a miniatur e golf course Y ou kno w the ones with the plastic heads Only five or six of the clubs in this set had gr ips that I could actually hold onto I should have suspected something was up when the course only char ged me $5 to r ent them. S omewher e on the fr ont nine I decided that no matter ho w har d it was the next time I tr aveled and intended to play golf, my tr usty sticks w er e coming with me A fr iend of mine who listened to my r ant about the clubs I r ented had a simple solution. I f y ou r e dr iving, take all the clubs out of y our bag and place them in the tr unk or back of the v an. I f necessar y br ing only half the set. I could have easily found a spot for my dr iver putter a w edge a hybr id and four ir ons I shook my head at ho w stupid I was for not thinking of that at the time If you actually have the r oom, packing y our clubs can be a br eez e J ust use a lot of common sense and think light, especially when yo u re flying to y our destination. T ake as light a golf bag as possible M any seasoned golf tr avelers have a light carr y bag, one that fits easily into their tr avel bag. M ake sur e that the tr avel bag is easily identifiable When shopping for a tr avel co ver look for one that has r oom for that extr a long dr iver y our shoes a sw eater or a jacket and maybe even a change of clothes The airlines will no longer allo w y ou to lock y our checked bags so take a thor ough inventor y of what s in the bag. T ake y our golf balls out of y our bag and pack them in y our suitcase This saves a tr emendous amount of w eight. T o tr im even mor e leave the balls at home and buy them when y ou get to the course To pr event y our clubs fr om clanking and scr atching, wr ap y our to w els ar ound the heads and put the r ain co ver on. T o help pr otect that extr a-long dr iver cut a br oom handle do wn to about two inches longer than y our dr iver and place it in the golf bag. This puts any pr essur e on the br oom handle and not y our pr ecious clubs C ut a hole in a tennis ball and use it to co ver the end so that the handle won t r ip thr ough the bag. While waiting for y our luggage in the baggage claim ar ea, find out wher e the o v ersiz ed bags ar e unloaded. B ags that ar e too big for the car ousels ar e often br ought out separ ately and staged in a differ ent ar ea. If yo u re renting a car look ar ound for the r ental counters when y ou get to the baggage claim ar ea. M ost tr avelers r etr ieve their luggage and then head for the r ental car counters which tend to get busy all at once I t s a good idea to consider getting y our car first. Chances ar e the line will be shor ter and it s a lot better than watching str ange luggage go ar ound and ar ound and ar ound. Whatever y ou do when tr aveling, be sur e to call the course first if y ou ar e depending on them for clubs to play y our r ound with.

10ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2012GIFT GUIDE Shoppers urged to remain alert this season ST. LUCIE COUNTY While everyone is busy tackling their holiday lists, area law enforcement has some suggestions to keep the holidays safer. P eople are more attracted during the holiday season, said Sgt. Chris Cicio, who is part of the St. Lucie C ounty Sheriffs Office crime prevention unit. The first place people should be aware is while shopping. B eing alert and aware of your surr oundings is important, Sgt. Cicio said. R esidents should only carry only what they need in their purse or wallet. Also, always carry the purse. Ne ver leave it in a shopping cart. Another suggestion is to park in w ell-traveled areas. W ith the time change, darkness will come sooner, he said. Carry a lighted keychain and a whistle, and try to park in lighted areas. He also said never assume you are alone. P lacing your purse, wallet or purchases in your vehicles trunk may seem safe, but not if someone is watching you do it, he said. I f you place your packages in the trunk but are planning to keep shopping, move your car to a different location in the parking lot so someone watching thinks youve left. Children should also be informed of safety issues when shopping. H ave a conversation with them about wandering off, and what to do if they become separated from an adult, he said. B ut its not just while shopping that r esidents need to be careful. Holiday safety is important at home, as well. T ake time to inventory valuables. The sheriffs office recommends engraving them with the owners driver license number. This greatly increases the chance of recovery, should the item be stolen, Sgt. Cicio said. He also suggests homeowners keep a list of valuables, complete with make, model, serial numbers and a photo in a separate location in case of a home burglary. If a homeowner plans to be away for a period of three days or more, they can call the crime prevention unit at (772) 871-5303 and request a deputy check on their home while they are away. Also, make a point to stop the mail and paper delivery, close your blinds and even play a radio so a potential burglar will hear voices. In the end, it boils down to trusting y our instincts. I f your gut tells you something is wrong, listen to it, he said.

15ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2012GIFT GUIDE Holiday program helps struggling seniors enjoy the season TREASURE COAST With so many older adults living alone and in poverty, some Treasure Coast seniors will undoubtedly be struggling to make ends meet this holiday season. Thats why the area Home Instead S enior Care office has partnered with r etailers and community organizations to make sure isolated seniors r eceive gifts and companionship through the Be a Santa to a Senior program. S eniors faced with medical bills and the high cost of living can find they have little left at the end of the y ear, said Patricia Strickland, coo wner with her husband, Michael, of the Home Instead Senior Care office serving St. Lucie and Martin counties. Thats not the only issue, though. P ersonal needs may become magnified for so many living alone with no one to share their problems. A ccording to the U.S. Census Bur eau, 9 percent of U.S. seniors 65 and older are living in poverty and 27 percent are widowed. W ith the support of Butterfields P harmacy & Medical Supplies and the C ouncil on Aging of St. Lucies Mealson-Wheels program, volunteers, members of the community and the local Home Instead Senior Care office will collect and distribute gifts to seniors who might otherwise spend the holiday alone. The Be a Santa to a Senior program will kicked off Nov. 15 at a special event at Butterfields Pharmacy & M edical Supplies on Saint Lucie West Bl vd and will run through Dec. 17. Christmas trees, which will go up at B utterfields in Port St. Lucie and Fort Pierce, as well as at Abingdon at Tradition, 10685 S.W. Stony Creek Way in Po rt S t. Lucie, will feature ornaments with the first names of the seniors and their respective gift requests. H oliday shoppers are asked to pick up an ornament, buy items on the list and return them unwrapped to the store, along with the ornament attached. The Home Instead Senior Care office will then enlist the volunteer help of its staff, senior-care business associates, nonprofit workers and others to collect, wrap and distribute the gifts. B e a Santa to a Senior is another way to say thank you to the many seniors who have made such important contributions to our community throughout the years, said Ms. Strickland. Helping a needy older adult can bring fulfillment to the giver as well as the receiver.It does make a difference.

10ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2012GIFT GUIDE Shoppers urged to remain alert this season ST. LUCIE COUNTY While everyone is busy tackling their holiday lists, area law enforcement has some suggestions to keep the holidays safer. P eople are more attracted during the holiday season, said Sgt. Chris Cicio, who is part of the St. Lucie C ounty Sheriffs Office crime prevention unit. The first place people should be aware is while shopping. B eing alert and aware of your surr oundings is important, Sgt. Cicio said. R esidents should only carry only what they need in their purse or wallet. Also, always carry the purse. Ne ver leave it in a shopping cart. Another suggestion is to park in w ell-traveled areas. W ith the time change, darkness will come sooner, he said. Carry a lighted keychain and a whistle, and try to park in lighted areas. He also said never assume you are alone. P lacing your purse, wallet or purchases in your vehicles trunk may seem safe, but not if someone is watching you do it, he said. I f you place your packages in the trunk but are planning to keep shopping, move your car to a different location in the parking lot so someone watching thinks youve left. Children should also be informed of safety issues when shopping. H ave a conversation with them about wandering off, and what to do if they become separated from an adult, he said. B ut its not just while shopping that r esidents need to be careful. Holiday safety is important at home, as well. T ake time to inventory valuables. The sheriffs office recommends engraving them with the owners driver license number. This greatly increases the chance of recovery, should the item be stolen, Sgt. Cicio said. He also suggests homeowners keep a list of valuables, complete with make, model, serial numbers and a photo in a separate location in case of a home burglary. If a homeowner plans to be away for a period of three days or more, they can call the crime prevention unit at (772) 871-5303 and request a deputy check on their home while they are away. Also, make a point to stop the mail and paper delivery, close your blinds and even play a radio so a potential burglar will hear voices. In the end, it boils down to trusting y our instincts. I f your gut tells you something is wrong, listen to it, he said.

15ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2012GIFT GUIDE Holiday program helps struggling seniors enjoy the season TREASURE COAST With so many older adults living alone and in poverty, some Treasure Coast seniors will undoubtedly be struggling to make ends meet this holiday season. Thats why the area Home Instead S enior Care office has partnered with r etailers and community organizations to make sure isolated seniors r eceive gifts and companionship through the Be a Santa to a Senior program. S eniors faced with medical bills and the high cost of living can find they have little left at the end of the y ear, said Patricia Strickland, coo wner with her husband, Michael, of the Home Instead Senior Care office serving St. Lucie and Martin counties. Thats not the only issue, though. P ersonal needs may become magnified for so many living alone with no one to share their problems. A ccording to the U.S. Census Bur eau, 9 percent of U.S. seniors 65 and older are living in poverty and 27 percent are widowed. W ith the support of Butterfields P harmacy & Medical Supplies and the C ouncil on Aging of St. Lucies Mealson-Wheels program, volunteers, members of the community and the local Home Instead Senior Care office will collect and distribute gifts to seniors who might otherwise spend the holiday alone. The Be a Santa to a Senior program will kicked off Nov. 15 at a special event at Butterfields Pharmacy & M edical Supplies on Saint Lucie West Bl vd and will run through Dec. 17. Christmas trees, which will go up at B utterfields in Port St. Lucie and Fort Pierce, as well as at Abingdon at Tradition, 10685 S.W. Stony Creek Way in Po rt S t. Lucie, will feature ornaments with the first names of the seniors and their respective gift requests. H oliday shoppers are asked to pick up an ornament, buy items on the list and return them unwrapped to the store, along with the ornament attached. The Home Instead Senior Care office will then enlist the volunteer help of its staff, senior-care business associates, nonprofit workers and others to collect, wrap and distribute the gifts. B e a Santa to a Senior is another way to say thank you to the many seniors who have made such important contributions to our community throughout the years, said Ms. Strickland. Helping a needy older adult can bring fulfillment to the giver as well as the receiver.It does make a difference.
