LUCIE COUNTY F or Gary Blackburn, it was a life or death decision. In July 2010, the St. Lucie C ounty resident's weight hit an all-time high of 538.8 pounds. Today, he sits quietly on his back porch, sipping water, 306 pounds lighter. "I had to make the decision then whether I wanted to live or die," he said. "I decided I wanted to live." And that's when his journey back to health began. B ut it wasn't always that way. H is struggle with weight has followed him his entire life. "I 'v e always been pretty big," Mr. Blackburn said. "I n high school, I weighed about 250-260 pounds." By the time he reached his 30s, health problems and his eating habits were spiraling out of control, and his weight reached more than 400 pounds. "F r om 2001 to 2008, I was hospitalized 15 times for infections from water r etention, after being diagnosed with lymphedema," he said. L ymphedema is where the lymph passages are blocked, which causes swelling and keeps tissue from draining fluid. The condition affected Mr. B lackburn's legs. F eeling helpless and constantly sick, his weight soon crept to more than 500 pounds and he was diagnosed with clinical depression. "I was unhappy and unhealthy," he said. In 2010, he made the decision to change his life for the better and the r esearch began. "I started to count calor ies and write down everything I ate," he said. "I realized I was eating between 3,000 and 3,500 calories a day. I never knew." Mr. Blackburn started a 1,500 calorie diet, eating fresh fruits, vegetables, light protein and grains. "I made some major changes," he said. "I tried to keep everything low sodium. Now, I do all my own co oking." Then, in January 2011, the walking started, on the street where he lives. "A t first, I could only go two houses down the street before I had to come back home," he said. "But I tried to walk a little further every TREASURE COAST The crackdown on illegal drug dissemination at some re gional pain clinics has led to an increase in the use of another narcotic. Law enforcement sources said prescription monitoring has made it more difficult to obtain controlled substances, driving some addicts to manufacture their own drugs and turn to the use of methamphetamine or meth,a drug that stimulates the central nervous system. In S t. Lucie County, the special investigations unit alone has busted nine labs and made 16 arrests in the last six months, said supervisor Sgt. Scott Wells. "I 'v e been in this unit for about six years as a supervisor and I don't remember City hires assistant manager PORT ST. LUCIE To help city manager Gregory Oravec with the many responsibilities that come with running one of the largest cities in the state, Jeff Bremer recently took his place as assistant city manager. Mr. Bremer moved with his wife, Christine, from Michigan for the position, and with him come his 34 y ears of experience in public administration. "I t' s been an educational first month," he said. "I think that this is such an incredibly dedicated group that works here." H is expertise in city government comes from his work within the cities of Birmingham and Fraser in Mi chigan. He holds a master's degree in public administration and a bachelor's degree in political science. Hi s new job responsibilities include overseeing a number of city departments, including parks and r ecreation, community services, building, zoning and public works.

in 1988 was when he broke into a school and ate some ice cream.Tr easure C oast Crime Stoppers allows local residents to pass along information about local crimes and wanted people in the area. All the information given is anonymous, and in some cases, an award is offered. T ips have included information about a large variety of crimes, including murders, r obberies, drugs and firearms possession. Each tip is assigned a number. The anonymous tipster uses the number to identify himself or herself. Another recent arrest based on a crime stopper tip was that of K elvin Smith, who was wanted in connection with the shooting of four people in Fort Pierce in July 2012. "T r easure Coast Crime S toppers sends us written notifications of any tips that come in for Port St. Lucie," said Master Sgt. Frank S abol, public information officer for the Port St. Lucie P olice Department. "We love working with them, and they are a great benefit to the community."

"The tasks keep coming in and I'm going to keep tackling them." H is dedication to public service is a family event. H is grandfather served as a mayor in Muskegon, Mich., and his sons have also served in city government. "W e' ve always encouraged volunteerism and public service in our family," he said. There won't be much of a learning curve for the Bremer family when it comes to the area, however.

LUCIE COUNTY Thanks in part to oceanfront residents' continued compliance with sea turtlefriendly lighting requirements, St. Lucie County experienced an increase in turtle nesting. R esident's efforts to conserve endangered sea turtle populations have helped sea turtle nesting activities on local beaches. Sea turtle lighting requirements r emained in effect during nesting season which ran from March 1 through Nov. 15. Erik Martin, scientific director for Ecological Associates, reported end-of-season results showing that from Normandy Beach south to the St. Lucie Inlet, a total of 3,956 loggerhead, 195 green turtle and 239 leatherback nests were observed and reported. This compares to 2011 nesting totals of 3,478 loggerhead nests, 243 green turtle nests and 376 leatherback nests. In addition, St Lucie C ounty's Mosquito Control and Coastal Management D epartment commissioned a lighting survey which was published in August 2012. Mo re than 90 beach-front facilities were surveyed. Hi gh-intensity lighting violations were observed on only three properties. Moderateto low-intensity lighting problems were identified on other locations. The county's code compliance is currently working with these properties to help them be in compliance by the next nesting season which begins March 1, 2013. The UF/IFAS St. Lucie C ounty Extension provided educational programs designed to teach residents about sea turtle-friendly beaches and how to comply with lighting requirements. R esearch has shown that improper beach front lighting greatly increases sea turtle mortality. Because of the danger posed by improper beach-visible lighting, there are federal and state laws that protect the area's threatened and endangered sea turtle populations. St. L ucie County enforces these r ules. Failure to obey can r esult in a code violation and increased sea turtle mortality. A ccording to county code, exterior light sources directly visible from the beach or illuminating areas seaward of the primary dune must be turned off between sunset and sunrise during nesting season. Existing artificial light sources should not be directly visible from the beach and cannot illuminate areas seaward of the primary dune. Lights illuminating beach access points, dune crossovers, beach walkways, piers or any other structure seaward of the primary dune designed for pedestrian traffic must be shielded so they are not directly visible from the beach. To prevent interior lights from illuminating the beach, window treatments are required on all windows of single and multi-story structures if these windows are within the line of sight of the beach. Blackout draperies or shade screens are preferred. Alternatively, window tint may be applied to beachfront windows. People should turn out all unnecessary interior lights during nesting season. F or more information on sea turtle-friendly beaches, call (772) 462-1660.For more information about nesting survey results,call (772) 3343729 or email erik@ecological-associates.com. F or Hometown News newsfp@hometownnewsol.comday and by February I could walk one lap around the block." One lap built up to two, then four. Now, he walks 10 laps a day, averaging about 4.5 miles. "I would walk five laps in the morning and five laps at night," he said. The weight has come off slowly and steadily over time, motivating Mr. Blackburn to keep with the program. "M y doctor is stunned," he said. "He keeps a close eye on my progress." H is progress has not gone unnoticed by others, either. R esidents of the neighborhood where he lives have stopped to cheer him on and tell him how much he inspires them. "I get stopped all the time," he said. "I'm more than happy to talk to people and answer questions. I know almost everyone on a first-name basis now and I've gotten so much inspiration from their praise." No w, at 232 pounds, his goal is to lose another 40, and get below 200 pounds. He joined Indrio Gym in Lakewood Park and walks there three times a week to work out on the treadmill and with weights. The staff there has really supported me," Mr. Blackburn said. "Tom, one of the trainers, has really inspired me." C urrently, Mr. Blackburn is talking to plastic surgeons about the excess skin he now carries all over his body. "I found that my insurance doesn't cover the skin r emoval, since it's seen as a cosmetic procedure," he said with a smile. "But I'll keep trying." It 's that positive attitude that keeps him walking and eating well, too. "I t was a blessing in disguise," he now says of his time at his heaviest weight. "M aybe I needed to go through the stuff that I did so I could do it on my own. It 's changed me." B ut while overall he found the process easier than he thought, he knew he was going to have bad days. There are some days I don't want to eat healthy or I don't want to walk," he said. "B ut it's important for me to r emember that as human beings we go through ups and downs. We feel frustrated or depressed, and that's OK. Just work through it." F or those out there still struggling with their weight, Mr. Blackburn has this advice. "H old yourself accountable," he said. "Everything y ou do is a conscious decision. You just have to be patient. Losing weight isn't an overnight thing. Set a plan and then stick with it." Mr. Blackburn has a Facebook page detailing his journey and offering inspiration.

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. our unit doing this much (in terms of meth-related investigations)," Sgt. Wells said. These cases were very spor adic. You'd get one every once in a while." In Ma r tin County, investigators from the sheriff's office and Drug Enforcement Administration discovered a meth lab on Nov. 29 after executing a search warrant at a Palm City home. The investigation led to the arrest of four people on manufacturing and possession charges. T wo months earlier, detectives with the special investigations unit arrested two people for manufacturing methamphetamine at a S tuart motel. So far this year, detectives have uncovered three labs, compared to the remnants of one discovered in a garage in 2011, according to information from Rhonda Ir ons, Sheriff's Office spokeswoman. B ut law enforcement sources said tougher regulation to stop prescription drug abuse has boosted methamphetamine manufacturing. "P art of the issue is that ov er the last couple years, several of the pain clinics throughout the state have been shut down, so there are fewer pain clinics where people can go get pills," Sgt. W ells said. "W ith many of the people we interview that have (meth) labs, one of the reasons they cite is that pills are more expensive now and harder to get. So this is kind of an alternative." M any of the area labs are operated by people making the drug for personal use, he said. In a market where one ox y codone pill can sell for $20 to$30, addicts are turning instead to meth, a drug with cheap ingredients, such as drain cleaner, acetone and cold medicine, Sgt. W ells said. The drug's popularity is also growing, thanks to r eadily available manufacturing instructions, videos, r ecipes and step-by-step instructions posted online. "B ut even if it wasn't online they were still going to find it. There's a lot of word of mouth. A lot of the labs are interrelated, with one person doing it and showing a friend," Sgt. Wells said. When people are used to getting something like the people who are used to pain meds as that availability decreases, they find something else to fill that void."NarcoticF rom page A1

The community has particpated in this toy drive for more than 10 years. Santa was on hand, too. Donations are neededI read in your paper last week about the shoebox campaign. It never ceases to amaze me that so many people take care of children in other countries and there are so many in America that need help. I am a compassionate person and feel for all the children, but it would be nice to take care of our own first. I recently read an article about a program started in Port S t. Lucie called "Grace Packs." At this particular school, there are children starting at 6 years of age and up. There are 41 children to date who receive a "Grace Pack" on Friday so they will have food for the weekend, if not, many would have no food until Monday when they return to school. Donations are a variety of foods that are kid friendly (i.e. microwavable mac and cheese, soup, pasta, granola bars, juice boxes, etc.). I personally have asked my local Curves if I could place a box in our gym and the ladies have come through for the children, giving food daily for this cause. I magine if local businesses and individuals started giving even one item a week we could feed so many who are less fortunate.More on welfare systemNo w, to let the readers know, first the welfare system was never designed to live off of. As I see these young gals breeding kids, our socialized Medicare and Social Security was never meant for what people do today with it. I see Haitians and Latinos getting into the "free" system that they never paid into, so that's a drain on the economy r ight there. Some immigrants come into this country knowing that they'll be able to get free stuff. You never hear of them writing to a congressperson to thank them for giving them that stuff. Oh, wait, they need to be able write and read in English in order to do that. Although the forms are in Latin or Creole hmm perhaps we need to make English the official language of Florida. There's a state out in the midwest that has done that. They have no budget problems at all. Go figure. Oh, by the way the democrats are now blocking the congress because they don't want to concede to the budget for the free handout "entitlements" that helped them get elected from the people who they bought off so they could have their cushy jobs in Washington. Anyhow, the welfare system was never intended to be used the way it is now. Just wait, people, for that big flushing sound of the U.S. That would be us becoming part of Eu r ope with dysfunctional budget woes all at the expense of taking care of people who just want to rely on the government for their livelihood. Hope they sleep well at night. P oor education systemThe decision to turn over the education of our children has been exposed as stunningly ignorant. U nionized monopolies have created ossified, bloated bureaucracies which fail to serve students or parents. S ingapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, Taipei and many Eu r opean countries produce high-school graduates with far better test scores. Students in the United States are not stupid, but they are poorly educated and poorly prepared to enter the competitive world of work.F rom a self-described flag-waverTo the person who wrote; "Know your facts:" F irst of all, I wrote about Obama coming to Florida (again). It's my opinion this man should have been doing his job instead of running back and forth, state after state, campaigning. I don't remember an incumbent president campaigning hell-bent-for-leather like Obama. It's also my opinion he was running scared. It's also my opinion (and many others), his amnesty for Latinos (as Obama put it), put him over the election, which wasn't a landslide. You stated, "Your TV has more than one station and if you don't like what's on one station, you' change stations." F or your information, everything he did and does is on "e very" station. I thought everyone knew that. You also say Obama saved jobs by bailing out GM and Chrysler. (It's the second time for Chrysler) The reason is the same: China; not enough export, too much import. You're right about the jobs part, as least for now. In my day (I'm 77), there were no Toyotas, Nissans, Kias, etc. As long as our government allows so many foreign imports into the U.S. we will be back in the same situation soon. L osing perspective?While there are obviously sincere, patriotic individuals and groups very concerned with the environment, who isn't? B ut the movement is being held hostile by fanatics who v alue their cause like religious fundamentalists. When flowers or shrubs or birds or bugs become more v alued than people, we've lost perspective. There are such things as property rights, but legislation such as the Endangered Species Act has handed busybody bureaucrats a club to stamp all over the average American citizen. Editor's note: The Endangered Species Act was passed in 1973.It will celebrate its 40th year in 2013.Overpaid dog sitter?Obama wants to raise taxes, while at the same time, have a White House staff with a salary in excess of $1 billion a y ear. He pays a dog sitter a salary in excess of $100,000 per y ear. W ith a wife, two daughters and a mother-in-law all living in the White House on taxpayer money. I think somebody could watch the dog.

C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. If there is one computer issue I can name that annoys both Windows and Mac users alike it would have to be automatic updates. If yo u' ve used a computer for any length of time you've experienced it, annoying messages that pop up telling y ou that one program or another needs to update and usually the message is worded in such a way as to make you believe that if you ignore the message horrible things will happen. One of the worst offenders has got to be Adobe with their "Flash" and "Adobe R eader" update messages popping up on an almost daily basis. What gives? Why is it that y ou can hardly make it through a week without some program interrupting y our workflow nagging you about an update and insisting that you need it? Does ignoring update messages lead down the path of doom or are these constant messages just noise that can safely be ignored? W ell, I have some theories that should answer these questions. F irst, I like to categorize updates into two slots: the first being "important updates that are dangerous to ignore" and the second slot for "updates that are trivial and safe to ignore (until actually needed)." Let's talk about the first category; why ignoring them can lead down the road to peril and what you should do about them. I categorize things such as operating system updates and antivirus updates as important. Don't ignore them. When you see a message telling you Windows has "x amount of updates available" or (if you are running a Mac) "important operating system updates are available," set aside some time to apply these updates because the operating system is the one central part of the computer that governs everything. Q uite often, these updates are "patches" that correct known bugs and often plug security holes that viruses and malware can take advantage of to infect your system. Ignoring these operating system updates can leave you vulnerable to malware or other problems that the updates just may fix. And the fact of the matter is, if your computer is up and r unning, you are using the operating system so it's not like it's an update for a program you never use. Antivirus updates are in the same category. They are important and ignoring them can leave your system open to attack from viruses that you may encounter as y ou surf the net. Think of it this way: every day new viruses are released into the wild and it takes the antivirus companies awhile to come up with a definition for these new threats. It's these definitions that are included in the antivirus updates and applying these updates is the only way your antivirus program can r ecognize (and block) new threats as you encounter them online. Sure we're all vulnerable to new threats that haven't been defined y et, but ignoring the antivirus updates leaves you vulnerable to threats that have already been discovered. If y our antivirus software doesn't update itself automatically, ignoring the update messages is just asking for an infection. OK, so we've covered the first category, let's talk about the second; updates that are safe to ignore. As I mentioned, I have a theory about this. On every computer there are hundreds of programs installed. S ome programs are used daily and some hardly ever get used at all but all programs have one thing in common: they are all written by people and most of them are working 9 to 5 at their programming job. When they write a program and then distribute their program to the masses it's not over for them. If it we re, they would have to look for a new job every time they finished a program. No, what happens is after they r elease a program when they show up for work the nextWhich updates can, should not be skipped COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Phone (772) 465-5656 Fax (772) 465-5301Classified (772) 465-5551 Rants & Raves (772) 465-5504Circulation Inquiries 1 -866-913-6397 circulation@hometownnewsol.comPORTST.LUCIEV oted # 1 Community Newspaper in America in 2005, 2006, 2007.

LUCIE COUNTY Alto "Bud" Adams Jr. will be the guest of honor at the second annual "L ov e Your Lagoon" dinner on Feb. 8 at 6 p.m. at the Harbor Branch O ceanographic Institute, 5600 U.S. 1 North in Fort Pierce. Pr oceeds from the event will support HBOI's r esearch of the lagoon. "I n order to alleviate the flooding and drought cycle, Adams Ranch builds a system of reservoirs connected by canals with risers to retain the water," said Mr. Adams. "W e store billions of gallons of water in the r eservoirs, the canals and pastures, which helps to ensure the health and w ellbeing of the Indian River Lagoon." Mr. Adams is best known for presiding over A dams Ranch, a 40,000acre cattle ranch spanning St. Lucie, Okeechobee and Osceola counties. The ranch helps preserve rivers, swamps, marshes, prairies, wooded areas and a vast array of wildlife. He was selected by the HBOIF board of directors to serve as this year's guest of honor because of his leadership in using best practices in agriculture, greatly benefitting the lagoon. The Indian River Lagoon is the most biologically diverse estuary in North America. Like estuaries and coastal waters throughout the world, the lagoon faces mounting threats related to increasing population and economic pressures. The "Love Your Lagoon" dinner will be held waterside, at HBOI's newly constructed, open-air plaza. G uests will enjoy cocktails and music under the stars, while savoring the flavors of sustainably sourced seafood and local produce. T ickets are $125 per person and sponsorship opportunities are still available.

Sports program expanding ST. LUCIE COUTNY i9Sports has been successfully providing flag football and soccer leagues for children ages 3 through 17 in St. L ucie West for four years. The programs will expand in January to two locations in Fort Pierce: Lawnwood Field and Lakewood Regional Park. F lag football will be available for children as young as 4 and children as young as 3 for soccer. G ames will be played Saturday mornings at Lawnwood Field or Sundays at Lakewood Regional Park, with practices scheduled one hour before the game. Every effort is made to accommodate special requests to play with siblings, friends or coaches. i9 Sports is focused on fun and fundamentals. Emphasizing good sportsmanship instead of the score, every w eek the focus is on a new skill that will help players become successful both on and off the field. A weekly sportsmanship award is given to a deserving player on each team for skills such as listening, fair play and best effort. Ce r tified coaches ensure the focus is on the i9 Sports core principles: fun, safety, good sportsmanship, everybody plays and everybody wins. There are no tryouts or drafts. Each child receives equal playing time and has the opportunity to play every position. A child who has never had a chance to play key positions in other leagues will get that chance in an i9 S ports league. "Y ou should see the look on a kid's face when you tell them they get to play quarterback," said Joe Greco, executive director of i9 Sports in St. Lucie County. "It's amazing what it does for their self-esteem." Mr. Greco says parents are usually very appreciative of the convenience of his i9 S ports leagues. "I had a busy mother of three tell me that only going to the field once a week has given her more family time. It can be hard to get multiple kids to multiple practices and games throughout the week," he said. "And they don't have to volunteer at the concession stand, so they get to watch their kids play."

ST. LUCIE COUNTY The N.Y. Mets/St. Lucie M ets donated $5,000 to the Chuck Hill Unit of the Boys & Girls Club in Port St. Lucie to help save the club and keep kids in a safe environment. In a time when hundreds of children and teens in the county are not receiving the guidance they need to graduate from high school, avoid the effects of violence, gangs and drugs or become r esponsible adults, the Boys & Girls Club of St. Lucie C ounty is there to help children and young adults. In S eptember, the Boys & G irls Club announced the Chuck Hill Unit was in danger of closing its doors if $150,000 wasn't raised by the end of the year to help fund the club. It costs the organization $1,000 per child to have them as members after school per year. Costs are kept as low as $10 per year for members, as many are in the free or reduced lunch program. The N.Y. Mets/St. Lucie M ets donated $5,000 to sponsor club members to attend the Chuck Hill Unit and participate in their effective youth development programs. The Mets are a big part of the community and see the importance of helping the y outh in the county," said P aul Taglieri, director of F lorida operations for the M ets. After touring the clubhouse, it only takes a moment to see how these programs enhance the lives of all the children attending and help them reach their full potential." The Chuck Hill Unit opened its doors one year ago in a response to a neighborhood in need of a youth development program and currently serves 150 members.

LUCIE COUNTY Open Arms Early Childhood Learning Center is asking community members to donate to the WPSL Christmas Kids toy drive. O pen Arms will collect unwrapped children's toys through Dec. 16 and donate them to the Christmas K ids project, the oldest continuous toy drive in St. L ucie County. The toys will be delivered to underprivileged children in the area, giving them a Christmas celebration which they wouldn't have otherwise. Donations can be dropped off at Open Arms of Fort Pierce, co-located within Trinity Lutheran Church, on the corner of Virginia Avenue and 13th Street at 2015 S. 13th St.. The Christmas Kids originated in 1946 when the first radio station on the Treasure Coast broadcast an appeal to help a little girl with brain cancer. The generosity of listeners was overwhelming and the toys and money donated helped little Reba Nell and many more children. The campaign has continued every holiday season since. Over the years, the Christmas Kids expanded to include summer recreation programs for children, plus medical supplies and school clothing for families with no other place to turn. O pen Arms Early Childhood Learning Center, a nonprofit organization, offers Christian-based, early learning for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years and afterschool care for children up to age 12.

This week, I am going to talk about a couple of plants that just don't seem to have as much fame as some of the other holiday plants. Although you may find these varieties a bit harder to locate locally, they are available at some specialty garden centers. One choice is cyclamen. The blossoms of the cyclamen twist and turn almost like the small wings of a butterfly. The foliage has a distinct silvery, marbleized coloring that makes this plant unique. These plants are quite beautiful but they do r equire a lot of care to stay healthy. The most important criteria for success are temperature and moisture. Cy clamen require low temperatures in order to thrive for any length of time. You must keep them out of the warm, outdoor temperatures and try to keep them in an area of y our house that is cool. This is tricky because at the same time, they also must be in an area that has ample light. Cy clamen also are finicky about watering. They need to be watered daily so that the soil is kept evenly moist. Always water your cyclamen by wetting the soil and not the plant. Watering the plant foliage can cause the plant to rot and die. S ince the plants like humidity, placing them on a tray filled with pebbles and water will help provide the moisture the plant needs. F eed your plants monthly with a liquid plant food designed for houseplants. Anthurium is another great plant that is popular during the holidays and can make a really nice holiday table decoration. These plants can grow in the most diverse habitats and do really well in our hot, tropical climate. Unlike the delicate cyclamen, these plants will serve well as both a holiday table decoration and as an outside potted plant. These plants are native to both Ha waii and also South America. They are also r eadily available at most local garden centers. Anthurium are relatively easy to care for and enjoy. They have very attractive foliage and can produce flowers almost year round! They prefer a growing medium that is course and w ell drained. The best mixture is a composite of peat moss, pine bark and perilite. These plants like to be watered completely and then allowed to dry slightly before watering again. Anthurium will grow either indoors or out and will do well in very bright locations. I have had tremendous luck with my plants under the protected ov erhang of my front porch. They also require regular fertilization in order to keep their lush green foliage and colorful flowers. Fertilize using a slow-release fertilizer such as Osmocote for indoor plants. Although I have never had any pest problems with my plants, they are susceptible to the usual indoor pests such as scale, mealy bugs and aphids. If problems arise, use a plant insecticide that is designed for indoor plants and be sure to spray all parts of the plant, especially under the leaves.

The most important step is to get your new puppy checked out by a v eterinarian as soon as possible.The veterinarian should perform a thorough e xamination to ensure you have a healthy free of any diseases or congenital abnormalities.I always tell my clients that the most important visit they will ever have is that first visit so we can get that puppy on a good healthy start to life. Feeding Puppies should be fed puppy food.This is a no brainer, but you would be surprised what some people feed their dogs.There are many good quality puppy foods available on the market.I have no preference of dry vs.canned, b ut there are some advantages of feeding dry food.Dry food is cheaper, better f or their teeth and doesn't smell if not consumed immediately.I generally recommend to feed as much as a puppy will eat in 30 minutes, then pull the food up and do this two to three times a day.The toy breeds may need to eat three times a day to avoid hypoglycemia.Following this schedule will accomplish two things: Housetraining puppies poop after naps, meals and playtime, so what is going to happen if the puppy is allowed to free feed all day long? Obesity prevention puppies that free feed as puppies will free feed as adults and when they stop growing vertically, they will grow horizontally and have obesity issues. Do not feed table scraps, people food.This can cause pancreatitis and metabolic bone disease in growing puppies. V accinations We normally vaccinate puppies with the core distemper, parvo vaccinations at 8,12, and 16 weeks of age.At 16 weeks, they are given a rabies vaccination. This is the time we normally spay or neuter, and microchip.Spaying a female puppy before her first heat cycle virtually eliminates any chance of developing breast cancer at a later date. Heartworm Prevention We start puppies on some form of heartworm prevention on the very first visit.Mosquitoes transmit heartworms and they will not respect the fact that these are puppies, and not bite and transmit heartworm disease.The longer one waits to start heartworm prevention, the greater the chance that they will contract the disease.There is a six month incubation for heartworms, from the time they get bitten, until it shows up in the blood, so puppies younger than 6 months of age are not tested prior to administering heartworm prevention. P arasite Contro l We ask that all new pet owners bring in a fresh fecal sample, even if the puppy has been dewormed.It would be a mistake to assume that just because a puppy has been appropriately dewormed, it is parasite free.We outline flea and tick control both on the puppy and in the environment before a problem arises.It is always easier to prevent a problem, than it is to treat one. Housetraining Puppies that are on a feeding schedule are much easier to housetrain.Do not spank or put the puppies nose in it's mess.They do not know better and need to be educated.That is our job.Puppies are not that much different than children.I don't think anyone would argue that infants are not spanked if they soil their diapers.My wife got our kids out of diapers with an M & M reward program.If they pottied in the little potty, they got 2 M & IVTs.If they went in the big potty, they got 4 M & IVTs because Mommy and Daddy did not have to clean the little potty.When a puppy has an accident in the house, take them to it and say no in a firm voice.Pick the mess up and take puppy and mess outside, place it on the ground and make a big deal and reward the puppy as if he/she had done it.Carry treats to reward the puppy when they go outside correctly.Positive reinforcement is the best way to housetrain a new puppy.We do not recommend crate training until a puppy is at least 12 weeks of age, because their sphincter muscles cannot hold in their urine or feces for longer than 2 hours. F ollowing these simple steps will help ensure that your Christmas puppy gets off to a good, healthy start. Caring for your Christmas Puppyby Patrick Kelly, DVM Dr J.

One of the most difficult things to ov ercome is a bad r eputation. That's not to say that you cannot, but it can be difficult. I ndianwood Golf Club in I ndiantown is trying to do just that. Over the past several y ears, neglect and drought caused the course to become nearly unplayable. There were fairways devoid of grass, greens with bare spots and ball marks, bunkers with dirt instead of sand and more. Then in Ma r ch of this year, members decided they were tired of their course sitting in such a state of neglect. They decided to purchase the club and bring it back to the course they had known and loved a few years ago. Last weekend I was invited to play the course for the first time in five years or more. I didn't see it in its neglected state. After visiting the course, it's hard to imagine just how bad it had become. The membero wners and their new management team have done a marvelous job in getting the course back to its former self. In A ugust, Jeff Stange was brought in as the club's new general manager. In the few short months that he has been at Indianwood, the club has experienced a r ebirth. The course has been overseeded for the winter, the fairways have come back, the bunkers have been cleaned up, the restaurant has a new menu and expanded hours and the pride the member's once felt in their club has been r estored. Of course the most important part of any golf club is the course itself. You know the old saying, "you cannot judge a book by its cover"? With a golf course the saying is, "you cannot judge a course by its scorecard". There are few courses where that saying fits better than at Indianwood.. One may think that a course that plays to just more than 6,000 yards from the back tees is a mere push-over. Here that is certainly not the case. While the course's par-5s may be somewhat short, and there are a few par-4s where you can and should hit a fairway wood or hybrid from the tee, it's the par-3s where I ndianwood shows its teeth. P laying to a par of 70, the course has six par-3s. The shortest of these plays to 140 yards from the back tees. Even this hole is fraught with danger, as the green is guarded by water and a large bunker at the front. The course has a wonderful variety of holes. On each of the par-3s I hit a different a club, using a 5-wood down to a 7-iron depending on the wind and pin placement. The fairways are generous in spots, narrow in others with gentle hills and undulations. You will need to navigate your tee shots between trees, bunkers and ponds. Most of the greens are elevated and well protected by trees and bunkers. Shots missing the green will require a deft touch if you plan to save par. One of the most intimidating tee shots I have ever hit comes at the par-4 eighth. Playing from the back tees, the hole measures just 518 yards. A solid tee shot will allow you to possibly reach the green in two and have a chance for eagle. The tee shot however must first carry a wetland and land in a narrow fairway with more wetland left, deep bunkers right and trees right of those. The par-4 ninth hole is one of the best in the county. Playing to about 400 yards, you must drive the ball down a narrow fairway guarded by bunkers and w etlands. Your approach must find a small green with water front and left, and a bunker right. The back nine plays a little shorter than the front, but features narrower fairways and smaller greens with more trees guarding them. The second-shortest par-4, the 12th, is the sixth hardest hole on the course because of this. P laying to just 486 yards, the par-5 17th, offer golfers the chance to pick up a stroke or two on their competitors. The 18th is the longest par-4 on the property and a solid finishing hole. After your round, you should check out the r estaurant. Now staying open until 8 p.m., you can enjoy a nice dinner after y our round, or arrive early on Thursday through S unday and grab breakfast before you play. For lunch I would recommend the grilled chicken sandwich with mesquite bacon, lettuce and tomato on grilled jalapeno cornbread. My r ound at Indianwood made for a pleasant Sunday afternoon. I'm glad to see the course coming back and the rates and specials are as good or better than any in the county.

LUCIE COUNTY F or Gary Blackburn, it was a life or death decision. In July 2010, the St. Lucie C ounty residents weight hit an all-time high of 538.8 pounds. Today, he sits quietly on his back porch, sipping water, 306 pounds lighter. I had to make the decision then whether I wanted to live or die, he said. I decided I wanted to live. And thats when his journey back to health began. B ut it wasnt always that way. H is struggle with weight has followed him his entire life. I v e always been pretty big, Mr. Blackburn said. I n high school, I weighed about 250-260 pounds. By the time he reached his 30s, health problems and his eating habits were spiraling out of control, and his weight reached more than 400 pounds. Fr om 2001 to 2008, I was hospitalized 15 times for infections from water r etention, after being diagnosed with lymphedema, he said. L ymphedema is where the lymph passages are blocked, which causes swelling and keeps tissue from draining fluid. The condition affected Mr. B lackburns legs. F eeling helpless and constantly sick, his weight soon crept to more than 500 pounds and he was diagnosed with clinical depression. I was unhappy and unhealthy, he said. In 2010, he made the decision to change his life for the better and the r esearch began. I started to count calor ies and write down everything I ate, he said. I realized I was eating between 3,000 and 3,500 calories a day. I never knew. Mr. Blackburn started a 1,500 calorie diet, eating fresh fruits, vegetables, light protein and grains. I made some major changes, he said. I tried to keep everything low sodium. Now, I do all my own co oking. Then, in January 2011, the walking started, on the street where he lives. A t first, I could only go two houses down the street before I had to come back home, he said. But I tried to walk a little further every TREASURE COAST The crackdown on illegal drug dissemination at some re gional pain clinics has led to an increase in the use of another narcotic. Law enforcement sources said prescription monitoring has made it more difficult to obtain controlled substances, driving some addicts to manufacture their own drugs and turn to the use of methamphetamine or meth,a drug that stimulates the central nervous system.

LUCIE COUNTY Thanks in part to oceanfront residents continued compliance with sea turtlefriendly lighting requirements, St. Lucie County experienced an increase in turtle nesting. R esidents efforts to conserve endangered sea turtle populations have helped sea turtle nesting activities on local beaches. Sea turtle lighting requirements r emained in effect during nesting season which ran from March 1 through Nov. 15. Erik Martin, scientific director for Ecological Associates, reported end-of-season results showing that from Normandy Beach south to the St. Lucie Inlet, a total of 3,956 loggerhead, 195 green turtle and 239 leatherback nests were observed and reported. This compares to 2011 nesting totals of 3,478 loggerhead nests, 243 green turtle nests and 376 leatherback nests. In addition, St Lucie C ountys Mosquito Control and Coastal Management D epartment commissioned a lighting survey which was published in August 2012. Mo re than 90 beach-front facilities were surveyed. Hi gh-intensity lighting violations were observed on only three properties. Moderateto low-intensity lighting problems were identified on other locations. The countys code compliance is currently working with these properties to help them be in compliance by the next nesting season which begins March 1, 2013. The UF/IFAS St. Lucie C ounty Extension provided educational programs designed to teach residents about sea turtle-friendly beaches and how to comply with lighting requirements. R esearch has shown that improper beach front lighting greatly increases sea turtle mortality. Because of the danger posed by improper beach-visible lighting, there are federal and state laws that protect the areas threatened and endangered sea turtle populations. St. L ucie County enforces these r ules. Failure to obey can r esult in a code violation and increased sea turtle mortality. A ccording to county code, exterior light sources directly visible from the beach or illuminating areas seaward of the primary dune must be turned off between sunset and sunrise during nesting season. Existing artificial light sources should not be directly visible from the beach and cannot illuminate areas seaward of the primary dune. Lights illuminating beach access points, dune crossovers, beach walkways, piers or any other structure seaward of the primary dune designed for pedestrian traffic must be shielded so they are not directly visible from the beach. To prevent interior lights from illuminating the beach, window treatments are required on all windows of single and multi-story structures if these windows are within the line of sight of the beach. Blackout draperies or shade screens are preferred. Alternatively, window tint may be applied to beachfront windows. People should turn out all unnecessary interior lights during nesting season.

F or Hometown News newsfp@hometownnewsol.comday and by February I could walk one lap around the block. One lap built up to two, then four. Now, he walks 10 laps a day, averaging about 4.5 miles. I would walk five laps in the morning and five laps at night, he said. The weight has come off slowly and steadily over time, motivating Mr. Blackburn to keep with the program. M y doctor is stunned, he said. He keeps a close eye on my progress. H is progress has not gone unnoticed by others, either. R esidents of the neighborhood where he lives have stopped to cheer him on and tell him how much he inspires them. I get stopped all the time, he said. Im more than happy to talk to people and answer questions. I know almost everyone on a first-name basis now and Ive gotten so much inspiration from their praise. Now, at 232 pounds, his goal is to lose another 40, and get below 200 pounds. He joined Indrio Gym in Lakewood Park and walks there three times a week to work out on the treadmill and with weights. The staff there has really supported me, Mr. Blackburn said. Tom, one of the trainers, has really inspired me. C urrently, Mr. Blackburn is talking to plastic surgeons about the excess skin he now carries all over his body. I found that my insurance doesnt cover the skin r emoval, since its seen as a cosmetic procedure, he said with a smile. But Ill keep trying. It s that positive attitude that keeps him walking and eating well, too. I t was a blessing in disguise, he now says of his time at his heaviest weight. M aybe I needed to go through the stuff that I did so I could do it on my own. It s changed me. B ut while overall he found the process easier than he thought, he knew he was going to have bad days. There are some days I dont want to eat healthy or I dont want to walk, he said. B ut its important for me to r emember that as human beings we go through ups and downs. We feel frustrated or depressed, and thats OK. Just work through it. F or those out there still struggling with their weight, Mr. Blackburn has this advice. H old yourself accountable, he said. Everything y ou do is a conscious decision. You just have to be patient. Losing weight isnt an overnight thing. Set a plan and then stick with it.

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. our unit doing this much (in terms of meth-related investigations), Sgt. Wells said. These cases were very spor adic. Youd get one every once in a while. In Mar tin County, investigators from the sheriffs office and Drug Enforcement Administration discovered a meth lab on Nov. 29 after executing a search warrant at a Palm City home. The investigation led to the arrest of four people on manufacturing and possession charges. T wo months earlier, detectives with the special investigations unit arrested two people for manufacturing methamphetamine at a S tuart motel. So far this year, detectives have uncovered three labs, compared to the remnants of one discovered in a garage in 2011, according to information from Rhonda Ir ons, Sheriffs Office spokeswoman. B ut law enforcement sources said tougher regulation to stop prescription drug abuse has boosted methamphetamine manufacturing. P art of the issue is that ov er the last couple years, several of the pain clinics throughout the state have been shut down, so there are fewer pain clinics where people can go get pills, Sgt. W ells said. W ith many of the people we interview that have (meth) labs, one of the reasons they cite is that pills are more expensive now and harder to get. So this is kind of an alternative. M any of the area labs are operated by people making the drug for personal use, he said. In a market where one oxy codone pill can sell for $20 to$30, addicts are turning instead to meth, a drug with cheap ingredients, such as drain cleaner, acetone and cold medicine, Sgt. W ells said. The drugs popularity is also growing, thanks to r eadily available manufacturing instructions, videos, r ecipes and step-by-step instructions posted online. B ut even if it wasnt online they were still going to find it. Theres a lot of word of mouth. A lot of the labs are interrelated, with one person doing it and showing a friend, Sgt. Wells said. When people are used to getting something like the people who are used to pain meds as that availability decreases, they find something else to fill that void.NarcoticF rom page A1

The community has particpated in this toy drive for more than 10 years. Santa was on hand, too. Donations are neededI read in your paper last week about the shoebox campaign. It never ceases to amaze me that so many people take care of children in other countries and there are so many in America that need help. I am a compassionate person and feel for all the children, but it would be nice to take care of our own first. I recently read an article about a program started in Port S t. Lucie called Grace Packs. At this particular school, there are children starting at 6 years of age and up. There are 41 children to date who receive a Grace Pack on Friday so they will have food for the weekend, if not, many would have no food until Monday when they return to school. Donations are a variety of foods that are kid friendly (i.e. microwavable mac and cheese, soup, pasta, granola bars, juice boxes, etc.). I personally have asked my local Curves if I could place a box in our gym and the ladies have come through for the children, giving food daily for this cause. I magine if local businesses and individuals started giving even one item a week we could feed so many who are less fortunate.More on welfare systemNow, to let the readers know, first the welfare system was never designed to live off of. As I see these young gals breeding kids, our socialized Medicare and Social Security was never meant for what people do today with it. I see Haitians and Latinos getting into the free system that they never paid into, so thats a drain on the economy r ight there. Some immigrants come into this country knowing that theyll be able to get free stuff. You never hear of them writing to a congressperson to thank them for giving them that stuff. Oh, wait, they need to be able write and read in English in order to do that. Although the forms are in Latin or Creole hmm perhaps we need to make English the official language of Florida. Theres a state out in the midwest that has done that. They have no budget problems at all. Go figure. Oh, by the way the democrats are now blocking the congress because they dont want to concede to the budget for the free handout entitlements that helped them get elected from the people who they bought off so they could have their cushy jobs in Washington. Anyhow, the welfare system was never intended to be used the way it is now. Just wait, people, for that big flushing sound of the U.S. That would be us becoming part of Eur ope with dysfunctional budget woes all at the expense of taking care of people who just want to rely on the government for their livelihood. Hope they sleep well at night. P oor education systemThe decision to turn over the education of our children has been exposed as stunningly ignorant. U nionized monopolies have created ossified, bloated bureaucracies which fail to serve students or parents. S ingapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, Taipei and many Eur opean countries produce high-school graduates with far better test scores. Students in the United States are not stupid, but they are poorly educated and poorly prepared to enter the competitive world of work.F rom a self-described flag-waverTo the person who wrote; Know your facts: F irst of all, I wrote about Obama coming to Florida (again). Its my opinion this man should have been doing his job instead of running back and forth, state after state, campaigning. I dont remember an incumbent president campaigning hell-bent-for-leather like Obama. Its also my opinion he was running scared. Its also my opinion (and many others), his amnesty for Latinos (as Obama put it), put him over the election, which wasnt a landslide. You stated, Your TV has more than one station and if you dont like whats on one station, you change stations. F or your information, everything he did and does is on e very station. I thought everyone knew that. You also say Obama saved jobs by bailing out GM and Chrysler. (Its the second time for Chrysler) The reason is the same: China; not enough export, too much import. Youre right about the jobs part, as least for now. In my day (Im 77), there were no Toyotas, Nissans, Kias, etc. As long as our government allows so many foreign imports into the U.S. we will be back in the same situation soon. L osing perspective?While there are obviously sincere, patriotic individuals and groups very concerned with the environment, who isnt? B ut the movement is being held hostile by fanatics who v alue their cause like religious fundamentalists. When flowers or shrubs or birds or bugs become more v alued than people, weve lost perspective. There are such things as property rights, but legislation such as the Endangered Species Act has handed busybody bureaucrats a club to stamp all over the average American citizen. Editors note: The Endangered Species Act was passed in 1973.It will celebrate its 40th year in 2013.Overpaid dog sitter?Obama wants to raise taxes, while at the same time, have a White House staff with a salary in excess of $1 billion a y ear. He pays a dog sitter a salary in excess of $100,000 per y ear. W ith a wife, two daughters and a mother-in-law all living in the White House on taxpayer money. I think somebody could watch the dog.

C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. If there is one computer issue I can name that annoys both Windows and Mac users alike it would have to be automatic updates. If yo u ve used a computer for any length of time youve experienced it, annoying messages that pop up telling y ou that one program or another needs to update and usually the message is worded in such a way as to make you believe that if you ignore the message horrible things will happen. One of the worst offenders has got to be Adobe with their Flash and Adobe R eader update messages popping up on an almost daily basis. What gives? Why is it that y ou can hardly make it through a week without some program interrupting y our workflow nagging you about an update and insisting that you need it? Does ignoring update messages lead down the path of doom or are these constant messages just noise that can safely be ignored? W ell, I have some theories that should answer these questions. F irst, I like to categorize updates into two slots: the first being important updates that are dangerous to ignore and the second slot for updates that are trivial and safe to ignore (until actually needed). Lets talk about the first category; why ignoring them can lead down the road to peril and what you should do about them. I categorize things such as operating system updates and antivirus updates as important. Dont ignore them. When you see a message telling you Windows has x amount of updates available or (if you are running a Mac) important operating system updates are available, set aside some time to apply these updates because the operating system is the one central part of the computer that governs everything. Q uite often, these updates are patches that correct known bugs and often plug security holes that viruses and malware can take advantage of to infect your system. Ignoring these operating system updates can leave you vulnerable to malware or other problems that the updates just may fix. And the fact of the matter is, if your computer is up and r unning, you are using the operating system so its not like its an update for a program you never use. Antivirus updates are in the same category. They are important and ignoring them can leave your system open to attack from viruses that you may encounter as y ou surf the net. Think of it this way: every day new viruses are released into the wild and it takes the antivirus companies awhile to come up with a definition for these new threats. Its these definitions that are included in the antivirus updates and applying these updates is the only way your antivirus program can r ecognize (and block) new threats as you encounter them online. Sure were all vulnerable to new threats that havent been defined y et, but ignoring the antivirus updates leaves you vulnerable to threats that have already been discovered. If your antivirus software doesnt update itself automatically, ignoring the update messages is just asking for an infection. OK, so weve covered the first category, lets talk about the second; updates that are safe to ignore. As I mentioned, I have a theory about this. On every computer there are hundreds of programs installed. S ome programs are used daily and some hardly ever get used at all but all programs have one thing in common: they are all written by people and most of them are working 9 to 5 at their programming job. When they write a program and then distribute their program to the masses its not over for them. If it we re, they would have to look for a new job every time they finished a program. No, what happens is after they r elease a program when they show up for work the nextWhich updates can, should not be skipped COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Phone (772) 465-5656 Fax (772) 465-5301Classified (772) 465-5551 Rants & Raves (772) 465-5504Circulation Inquiries 1 -866-913-6397 circulation@hometownnewsol.comPORTST.LUCIEV oted # 1 Community Newspaper in America in 2005, 2006, 2007.

F or more information, visit www.cscslc.org.Council grants funds for county programST. LUCIE COUNTY The TD Charitable Foundation donated a total of $10,000 to the Early Learning Coalition of St. Lucie C ounty as part of the banks commitment to giving back to the community. The Early Learning Coalition of St. Lucie County is a nonprofit organization offering child care resource and referral services; the school readiness program; the voluntary prekindergarten program and the father and child connection program. T ogether, these programs served more than 20,000 local families in fiscal year 2011-12. C CR&R Specialists refer an average of 200 callers per day to childcare providers and community services. The SR and VPK programs provide highquality early childhood education in order to prepare children for kindergarten and beyond.

Sports program expanding ST. LUCIE COUTNY i9Sports has been successfully providing flag football and soccer leagues for children ages 3 through 17 in St. L ucie West for four years. The programs will expand in January to two locations in Fort Pierce: Lawnwood Field and Lakewood Regional Park. F lag football will be available for children as young as 4 and children as young as 3 for soccer. G ames will be played Saturday mornings at Lawnwood Field or Sundays at Lakewood Regional Park, with practices scheduled one hour before the game. Every effort is made to accommodate special requests to play with siblings, friends or coaches. i9 Sports is focused on fun and fundamentals. Emphasizing good sportsmanship instead of the score, every w eek the focus is on a new skill that will help players become successful both on and off the field. A weekly sportsmanship award is given to a deserving player on each team for skills such as listening, fair play and best effort. Cer tified coaches ensure the focus is on the i9 Sports core principles: fun, safety, good sportsmanship, everybody plays and everybody wins. There are no tryouts or drafts. Each child receives equal playing time and has the opportunity to play every position. A child who has never had a chance to play key positions in other leagues will get that chance in an i9 S ports league. Y ou should see the look on a kids face when you tell them they get to play quarterback, said Joe Greco, executive director of i9 Sports in St. Lucie County. Its amazing what it does for their self-esteem. Mr. Greco says parents are usually very appreciative of the convenience of his i9 S ports leagues. I had a busy mother of three tell me that only going to the field once a week has given her more family time. It can be hard to get multiple kids to multiple practices and games throughout the week, he said. And they dont have to volunteer at the concession stand, so they get to watch their kids play.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY The N.Y. Mets/St. Lucie M ets donated $5,000 to the Chuck Hill Unit of the Boys & Girls Club in Port St. Lucie to help save the club and keep kids in a safe environment. In a time when hundreds of children and teens in the county are not receiving the guidance they need to graduate from high school, avoid the effects of violence, gangs and drugs or become r esponsible adults, the Boys & Girls Club of St. Lucie C ounty is there to help children and young adults. In S eptember, the Boys & G irls Club announced the Chuck Hill Unit was in danger of closing its doors if $150,000 wasnt raised by the end of the year to help fund the club. It costs the organization $1,000 per child to have them as members after school per year. Costs are kept as low as $10 per year for members, as many are in the free or reduced lunch program. The N.Y. Mets/St. Lucie M ets donated $5,000 to sponsor club members to attend the Chuck Hill Unit and participate in their effective youth development programs. The Mets are a big part of the community and see the importance of helping the y outh in the county, said P aul Taglieri, director of F lorida operations for the M ets. After touring the clubhouse, it only takes a moment to see how these programs enhance the lives of all the children attending and help them reach their full potential. The Chuck Hill Unit opened its doors one year ago in a response to a neighborhood in need of a youth development program and currently serves 150 members.

LUCIE COUNTY Open Arms Early Childhood Learning Center is asking community members to donate to the WPSL Christmas Kids toy drive. O pen Arms will collect unwrapped childrens toys through Dec. 16 and donate them to the Christmas K ids project, the oldest continuous toy drive in St. L ucie County. The toys will be delivered to underprivileged children in the area, giving them a Christmas celebration which they wouldnt have otherwise. Donations can be dropped off at Open Arms of Fort Pierce, co-located within Trinity Lutheran Church, on the corner of Virginia Avenue and 13th Street at 2015 S. 13th St.. The Christmas Kids originated in 1946 when the first radio station on the Treasure Coast broadcast an appeal to help a little girl with brain cancer. The generosity of listeners was overwhelming and the toys and money donated helped little Reba Nell and many more children. The campaign has continued every holiday season since. Over the years, the Christmas Kids expanded to include summer recreation programs for children, plus medical supplies and school clothing for families with no other place to turn. O pen Arms Early Childhood Learning Center, a nonprofit organization, offers Christian-based, early learning for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years and afterschool care for children up to age 12.

The blossoms of the cy clamen twist and tur n almost like the small wings of a butter fly The foliage has a distinct silver y marbleiz ed color ing that makes this plant unique These plants ar e quite beautiful but they do r equir e a lot of car e to stay healthy The most important cr iter ia for success ar e temper atur e and moistur e Cy clamen r equir e lo w temper atur es in or der to thr ive for any length of time Y ou must keep them out of the war m, outdoor temper atur es and tr y to keep them in an ar ea of y our house that is cool. This is tr icky because at the same time they also must be in an ar ea that has ample light. Cy clamen also ar e finicky about water ing. They need to be water ed daily so that the soil is kept evenly moist. Always water y our cy clamen b y w etting the soil and not the plant. W ater ing the plant foliage can cause the plant to r ot and die S ince the plants like humidity placing them on a tr ay filled with pebbles and water will help pr o vide the moistur e the plant needs F eed y our plants monthly with a liquid plant food designed for houseplants Anthur ium is another gr eat plant that is popular dur ing the holidays and can make a r eally nice holiday table decor ation. These plants can gr o w in the most diverse habitats and do r eally w ell in our hot, tr opical climate U nlike the delicate cy clamen, these plants will ser ve w ell as both a holiday table decor ation and as an outside potted plant. These plants ar e native to both Ha waii and also S outh Amer ica. They ar e also r eadily av ailable at most local gar den centers Anthur ium ar e r elatively easy to car e for and enjo y They have ver y attr active foliage and can pr oduce flo w ers almost y ear r ound! They pr efer a gr o wing medium that is course and w ell dr ained. The best mixtur e is a composite of peat moss pine bar k and per ilite These plants like to be water ed completely and then allo w ed to dr y slightly befor e water ing again. Anthur ium will gr o w either indoors or out and will do w ell in ver y br ight locations I have had tr emendous luck with my plants under the pr otected ov er hang of my fr ont por ch.

The most important step is to get your new puppy checked out by a v eterinarian as soon as possible.The veterinarian should perform a thorough e xamination to ensure you have a healthy free of any diseases or congenital abnormalities.I always tell my clients that the most important visit they will ever have is that first visit so we can get that puppy on a good healthy start to life. Feeding Puppies should be fed puppy food.This is a no brainer, but you would be surprised what some people feed their dogs.There are many good quality puppy foods available on the market.I have no preference of dry vs.canned, b ut there are some advantages of feeding dry food.Dry food is cheaper, better f or their teeth and doesn't smell if not consumed immediately.I generally recommend to feed as much as a puppy will eat in 30 minutes, then pull the food up and do this two to three times a day.The toy breeds may need to eat three times a day to avoid hypoglycemia.Following this schedule will accomplish two things: Housetraining puppies poop after naps, meals and playtime, so what is going to happen if the puppy is allowed to free feed all day long? Obesity prevention puppies that free feed as puppies will free feed as adults and when they stop growing vertically, they will grow horizontally and have obesity issues. Do not feed table scraps, people food.This can cause pancreatitis and metabolic bone disease in growing puppies. V accinations We normally vaccinate puppies with the core distemper, parvo vaccinations at 8,12, and 16 weeks of age.At 16 weeks, they are given a rabies vaccination. This is the time we normally spay or neuter, and microchip.Spaying a female puppy before her first heat cycle virtually eliminates any chance of developing breast cancer at a later date. Heartworm Prevention We start puppies on some form of heartworm prevention on the very first visit.Mosquitoes transmit heartworms and they will not respect the fact that these are puppies, and not bite and transmit heartworm disease.The longer one waits to start heartworm prevention, the greater the chance that they will contract the disease.There is a six month incubation for heartworms, from the time they get bitten, until it shows up in the blood, so puppies younger than 6 months of age are not tested prior to administering heartworm prevention. P arasite Control We ask that all new pet owners bring in a fresh fecal sample, even if the puppy has been dewormed.It would be a mistake to assume that just because a puppy has been appropriately dewormed, it is parasite free.We outline flea and tick control both on the puppy and in the environment before a problem arises.It is always easier to prevent a problem, than it is to treat one. Housetraining Puppies that are on a feeding schedule are much easier to housetrain.Do not spank or put the puppies nose in it's mess.They do not know better and need to be educated.That is our job.Puppies are not that much different than children.I don't think anyone would argue that infants are not spanked if they soil their diapers.My wife got our kids out of diapers with an M & M reward program.If they pottied in the little potty, they got 2 M & IVTs.If they went in the big potty, they got 4 M & IVTs because Mommy and Daddy did not have to clean the little potty.When a puppy has an accident in the house, take them to it and say no in a firm voice.Pick the mess up and take puppy and mess outside, place it on the ground and make a big deal and reward the puppy as if he/she had done it.Carry treats to reward the puppy when they go outside correctly.Positive reinforcement is the best way to housetrain a new puppy.We do not recommend crate training until a puppy is at least 12 weeks of age, because their sphincter muscles cannot hold in their urine or feces for longer than 2 hours. F ollowing these simple steps will help ensure that your Christmas puppy gets off to a good, healthy start. Caring for your Christmas Puppyby Patrick Kelly, DVM Dr J.

Thats not to say that you cannot, but it can be difficult. I ndianwood Golf Club in I ndiantown is trying to do just that. Over the past several y ears, neglect and drought caused the course to become nearly unplayable. There were fairways devoid of grass, greens with bare spots and ball marks, bunkers with dirt instead of sand and more. Then in Mar ch of this year, members decided they were tired of their course sitting in such a state of neglect. They decided to purchase the club and bring it back to the course they had known and loved a few years ago. Last weekend I was invited to play the course for the first time in five years or more. I didnt see it in its neglected state. After visiting the course, its hard to imagine just how bad it had become. The membero wners and their new management team have done a marvelous job in getting the course back to its former self. In A ugust, Jeff Stange was brought in as the clubs new general manager. In the few short months that he has been at Indianwood, the club has experienced a r ebirth. The course has been overseeded for the winter, the fairways have come back, the bunkers have been cleaned up, the restaurant has a new menu and expanded hours and the pride the members once felt in their club has been r estored. Of course the most important part of any golf club is the course itself. You know the old saying, you cannot judge a book by its cover? With a golf course the saying is, you cannot judge a course by its scorecard. There are few courses where that saying fits better than at Indianwood.. One may think that a course that plays to just more than 6,000 yards from the back tees is a mere push-over. Here that is certainly not the case. While the courses par-5s may be somewhat short, and there are a few par-4s where you can and should hit a fairway wood or hybrid from the tee, its the par-3s where I ndianwood shows its teeth. P laying to a par of 70, the course has six par-3s. The shortest of these plays to 140 yards from the back tees. Even this hole is fraught with danger, as the green is guarded by water and a large bunker at the front. The course has a wonderful variety of holes. On each of the par-3s I hit a different a club, using a 5-wood down to a 7-iron depending on the wind and pin placement. The fairways are generous in spots, narrow in others with gentle hills and undulations. You will need to navigate your tee shots between trees, bunkers and ponds. Most of the greens are elevated and well protected by trees and bunkers. Shots missing the green will require a deft touch if you plan to save par. One of the most intimidating tee shots I have ever hit comes at the par-4 eighth. Playing from the back tees, the hole measures just 518 yards. A solid tee shot will allow you to possibly reach the green in two and have a chance for eagle. The tee shot however must first carry a wetland and land in a narrow fairway with more wetland left, deep bunkers right and trees right of those. The par-4 ninth hole is one of the best in the county. Playing to about 400 yards, you must drive the ball down a narrow fairway guarded by bunkers and w etlands. Your approach must find a small green with water front and left, and a bunker right. The back nine plays a little shorter than the front, but features narrower fairways and smaller greens with more trees guarding them. The second-shortest par-4, the 12th, is the sixth hardest hole on the course because of this. P laying to just 486 yards, the par-5 17th, offer golfers the chance to pick up a stroke or two on their competitors. The 18th is the longest par-4 on the property and a solid finishing hole. After your round, you should check out the r estaurant. Now staying open until 8 p.m., you can enjoy a nice dinner after y our round, or arrive early on Thursday through S unday and grab breakfast before you play. For lunch I would recommend the grilled chicken sandwich with mesquite bacon, lettuce and tomato on grilled jalapeno cornbread. My r ound at Indianwood made for a pleasant Sunday afternoon. Im glad to see the course coming back and the rates and specials are as good or better than any in the county.
