PORT ST. LUCIE In an emotional morning, the Port St. Lucie City Council voted 4-0 at a special meeting on Feb. 7 to accept a separ ation agreement between the city and City Manager Greg Oravec. His last day was Feb. 8. When this first started, unfortunately things began to unravel very quickly," said Mayor JoAnn Faiella. and I really wanted a fair process to this. The majority of the council wanted this to be done very quickly." Mr. Oravec and the city agreed to a separation package giving him five months of severance pay, approximately $90,000. The meeting was recessed within minutes of first starting because the final agreement had not yet been r eached, and the legal department wanted additional time to finalize the details. Mr. Oravec became city manager when Jerry Bentrott was fired by the council last year. In No vember, Mr. Oravec received a raise and praise from the council on his performance. A ccording to documentation compiled by Mr. Oravec, there seemed to be a conflict between him and Councilman Ron Bowen, who was elected to the position in No vember. The documentation also indicated Mr. Oravec's attempts to correct the strained r elationship, including asking for direction from the members of the city council and the legal department. Assistant City Manager Jeff Bremer will step into the role until a replacement has been selected. There was no discussion on how or when a replacement search will take place. C ouncilwoman Michelle Berger was out of town and not present at the meeting. "S he asked me to make the statement to the council that she had posted her calendar in advance advising she was unavailable for meetings this week," said Roger Orr, the city attorney. "She expressed her concern that the council would have a meeting in her absence on a matter of this importance." "I 'm extremely sad and disappointed about what has occurred," said Councilwoman Shannon Ma r tin. "However, under the circumstances, the amicable separation agreement is the best course of action."

LUCIE COUNTY The next generation of scientists filled three floors of the Kight Center at Indian River State College last w eek as the St. Lucie County Regional Science Fair held its milestone 25th y ear. Mo re than 300 middle and high school projects we re entered in this year's fair, and ranged from using ocean currents to generating electricity to the reproductions of amoeba. All the schools were repr esented, from middle schools and K-8s to the high school level. It also included magnet schools, charter schools and the Olivet Priv ate Academy School. These kids have worked so hard," said Beth Bonvie, one of the committee members for the science fair. The projects are exceptional this year." Thanks to a partnership with IRSC, the science fair was able to use one of its buildings to display the projects. Junior-level science projects took over the main floor, while seniorlevel projects occupied the second and third floors. In all, 13 fields of science from social science to zoology sat next to each other. Fr om the community, dozens of scientists, engineers and other experts came to the science fair on Fe b. 8 to act as judges for the event. The projects were open for the public to view on Fe b. 7. The next day, stu-Shelter nearing completion PORT ST. LUCIE The H umane Society of St. Lucie C ounty came a step closer to seeing the opening of its new shelter in Port St. Lucie on Feb. 4. That's when the large cupola was lifted to complete the roof of the facility, scheduled to open by the end of September this year. "I t' s beyond words," said D avid Robertson, the director of operations for the facility. The approximately 10,500 square-foot shelter, called the Port St. Lucie Kindness C enter, will feature animal housing, a low-cost spay/neuter clinic, a volunteer and education center and a memorial wall for animals on the almost fiveacre site on Glades Cut-Off R oad. M embers of the humane society's board of directors we re on hand to witness the building milestone. "B efore we even put a shovel to dirt, we spent almost five years planning this," said Joanne Ferrara, one of the board members. "I t' s exciting for all of us." The construction is ahead of schedule as well, according to Frank Andrews, executive director of the humane society. He's also happy to be on budget. "So far, we have 60 percent of the monies raised to pay for this project," he said. "None of the money has come from operating expenses or tax dollars." The humane society, a nonprofit charity, is using bequests and capital gifts r eceived specifically for a kindness center for this project. The center will be able to house approximately 200 animals. When additional funds are available, a dog park will be added. In the meantime, the society is preparing for its annual fundraiser, the ninth annual Fur Ball and Ca tsino Night, to be held on Ma r ch 9 at the Pelican Yacht Club. This year the gala has a W estern theme, and guests are encouraged to come in their best period attire for a night of cocktails, dinner, music and silent auctions. T ickets are $100 per person, and both tickets and sponsorships for the event are still available.

LUCIE COUNTY When Assistant Chief Chris B ushman started with the St. L ucie County Fire District in 1979, Fire Department Headquarters was at North 7th street and Avenue D in Fort Pierce. Fire service operations were provided from seven fire stations spread throughout St Lucie County, and run volume was around 500 to 600 calls a month depending on the season. The fire district responds to about 3,400 calls a month, some 40,000 a year, out of 17 fire stations. Assistant Chief Bushman started his career in the fire service in 1977 as a Forest R anger with the Florida Division of Forestry. He moved to the Fire District in 1979 and is retiring after serving 34 years as a St L ucie County firefighter. When he joined SLCFD, most of the stations were staffed with three firefighters who were cross trained as certified firefighters, and emergency medical technicians or paramedics. Whatever the call was, we took the rescue vehicle (ambulance), or the fire truck and managed most calls with those three firefighters," said Mr. Bushman. "T oday, we staff all fire stations with a minimum of four cross-trained personnel and most calls get at least five firefighters responding so that there is enough manpower to handle the emergency." The standard of care has changed rather drastically since I started," said Mr. B ushman. "Both firefighting and emergency medical services has seen a multitude of regulations and standards for both equipment and the types of medications allowed to administer prior to delivering a patient to the hospital. We also have a state approved trauma center in the county which is a tremendous benefit to the citizens." One of Bushman's biggest challenges was being part of establishing a Hazardous M aterials response team for the fire district in 1991. This was partly in response to an anhydrous ammonia explosion in Fort Pierce which killed three workers, as well as the trend in the number of hazardous materials incidents that necessitated this type of specialization. Chief Bushman was also the initial on scene incident commander for the large brush fires that consumed 44 houses in Port St Lucie back in 1999. That is just one of the memories that invade your mind from time to time," said Mr. Bushman. "Mother Na ture took control that day and showed all of us who was in charge." Chief Bushman has also worked every hurricane and tropical storm since Hurricane David back in 1979. "I t' s just what we do, anytime, anyplace, anywhere," he said. Chief Bushman will maintain his teaching credentials at Indian River State College and plans on additional volunteering with local organizations and spending time with his family traveling. Commissioners name Mets Spring Training homePORT ST. LUCIE The S t. Lucie County Board of C ounty Commissioners unanimously approved a naming rights agreement with Tradition Florida to once again rename the spring training home of the New York Mets to Tradition Field. The New York Mets are celebrating 25 years of spring training in Port St. L ucie. The ballpark, originally known as Thomas J. White Stadium, was named Tradition Field from 2004-09. "W e are encouraged that the New York Mets were able to reach a deal with Tr adition. The arrangement is another positive step forward in furthering our efforts to improve M ajor League Baseball and its impacts on our community," said St. Lucie County C ommission Chairman T od Mowery "W e are pleased to have a new partner for the stadium's naming rights as we look forward to a great season with the New York M ets and our Tradition partners," added St. Lucie C ounty Commissioner and T ourist Development C ouncil Chairman Chris Dzadovsky. "It's apparent that the economy is back and this is a great indicator." The naming rights will generate additional revenues for both the New Yo rk Me ts and St. Lucie C ounty. The county, which pays for the debt service and operations of the facility, will receive $75,000 in the first year of the naming-rights agreement, which runs through 2017. Tr adition Field underw ent an expansion in 2012. In addition to an upgraded and enhanced scoreboard and video screen, the metal bleacher seating area beside the first base line was converted into traditional seats along with open picnic tables and outdoor bars. A paved walked away and terrace was also added to give guests easier access to the grassy outfield berm. The New York Mets will open their 2013 spring training schedule on Saturday, Feb. 23 against the W ashington Nationals at 1:10 p.m. in Port St. Lucie. The Mets will play 18 home games at Tradition Field, located at 525 NW Peacock Bl v d., Port St. Lucie.

If you have played golf for any length of time, chances are the game has provided you with something that helped mold you into the person y ou are today. The greatest compliment that we can pay our game is to pass those lessons learned to the next generation. Thanks to The First Tee Tr easure Coast, the next generation has a program in place to teach our youth, ages seven through 17 living in St. Lucie and Ma r tin Counties, the v alues of our great game. F ounded in the summer of 2012, the program has partnered with the Boys and Girls Club of Hobe S ound and Indiantown and the East Stuart Community C enter. The First Tee N ational School Program is being implemented in four Tr easure Coast elementary schools funded by the F lorida Junior Golf Council license program. In addition, Hammock Cr eek Golf Club in Palm City, as well as The Saints Golf Course in Port St. L ucie, have Saturday programs. Recent programs have seen a few hundred kids attend and complete the program. Usin g the game of golf as a vehicle, the program teaches The First Tee Nine Co re V alues: honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, r espect, confidence, r esponsibility, perseverance, courtesy and judgment. The mission is to impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill lifeenhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf. The creation of The First T ee Treasure Coast was made possible by the contributions of the r emarkable Hunt family. Alcoa Aluminum was founded in 1888 by Alfred H unt. In the early 1900s, Ro y A. Hunt worked his way from mill clerk to chairman. The Roy A. Hunt F oundation traces its roots back to 1951, when Roy and his wife Rachel established the family foundation in Pittsburgh to support organizations that strive to improve the quality of life. In 1996, the Foundation set up three special initiatives, one being youth development. Twice a year, three generations of the H unt family gather from across the country to make grants to worthy non-profit organizations. Andrew Hunt, a Treasure C oast resident and chairman of the Roy A. Hunt F oundation's Youth De velopment Initiative, has sponsored several grants to many youth organizations including the Boys and Girls Club of S t. Lucie County. An advocate for youth development and an avid golfer himself, he has discovered that golf is a great way to connect with today's y outh. After an evaluation of junior golf programs, it became clear that The First T ee is a perfect fit for the Tr easure Coast," said Mr. H unt. "The First Tee offers a lot more than learning golf as character building. Co re v alues and healthy habits are essential elements of the program." In M ay of 2012, he attended a breakfast meeting at The Breakers R esort in Palm Beach with former President George W. B ush, the Honorary Chairman of The First Tee. At the meeting, Mr. Hunt accepted the invitation to become a Trustee. His commitment accelerated the impact and presence of The First Tee in the Treasure Coast Region. Mr. Hunt joined The First T ee Treasure Coast Council of Directors and serves as chairman of the chapter. Charlie D'Agata, a close r elative of Mr. Hunt, also joined the council as vice chairman. Mr. D'Agata's main focus is to articulate the mission of The First Tee to major funding and social agencies, institutions, media and local government. He has a long history of service to Tr easure Coast non-profit and community organizations, including serving on four of their local boards of directors. Br inging new trustees to The First Tee is a very important endeavor for The Campaign for 10 M illion Young People" as they seek to raise funds that will expand the reach of the character education and life-skills programs to help young people prepare for success in high school, college and life. We can all stand to be a little more honest. Integrity in life is one of the world's most important traits. Sh o wing sportsmanship and conducting yourself in a respectful manner will get anyone far in life, as will respecting yourself, y our partners, your opponents, the course and traditions. Being confident is a great feeling. B eing responsible for y our own actions has sadly become something our world has lost sight of. To truly succeed, one must learn perseverance. A little courtesy goes a long way. S haking someone's hand, giving credit where it's due has become another lost art. F inally, learning good judgment to make a decision or form an opinion takes time to master. S tarting the process early pays big dividends.

Where are the hairnets?My wife was an accredited chef and after being told only once that she must wear a hairnet and gloves every time she was preparing food, she never went without again. So how come a Fort Pierce Central High School student was not wearing either a hairnet or gloves in her picture in the H ometown News of Feb. 8, 2013? Her long braided hair was almost into the chocolate mousse she was preparing. S ame thing as to the other students, also pictured without hairnets or gloves. One had extremely long hair and a beard. Shame on all of you. When was the last time these folks were checked out for food code violations? Extremely gross. I don't want to purchase food by any of these people because hair and germs may be contained in the products they prepare for the general public.Obama's lottery?H ey here's a title for the welfare program; call it either the Obama lottery or the government lottery, all you have do to qualify is be female, have kids, be unwed, and for the gals, just don't give the government your man's social security, or then he'll have to pay for his own kids. God forbid that would happen. Here's an idea for the doctors: if these females are on welfare, then they should be made not to produce anymore at the taxpayer expense. Now that would slowly end poverty. Or, the government should make it where they have to get a license to get pregnant. H eck, you have to have a license for everything else. Why not for the people on welfare? The taxpayer should get paid back from those who want an easy life without working. Sounds cruel, huh? Well, so is having kids without r eally wanting them, just to maintain yourselves on the government payroll. Sick and madWe are grandparents and great-grandparents of nine wonderful kids. That said, we are both sick and mad at all the adults that voted for Mr. Obama. How could any caring senior vote for a man that is spending at such a rate that he will saddle out kids forever with debt? How could you be so selfish as to destroy your kids? We don't condone it, but we see why selfish unions do it. We also know why minorities do it. But for seniors, well, it's just wrong. It's like the bumper stickers I see around, saying you can't be catholic and for abortion. Well you cannot be a grandparent and vote for Obama. Shame on you!Double talkObama's comments on New Amnesty Immigrants are double talk and two-faced. He stated, "They must learn English, get a job and pay Taxes. N umber one, learning English or any language takes time or schooling. Number two, what kind of jobs can they (or Obama) expect to get without speaking English? Number three, how can they pay taxes with no job? There are no jobs for American citizens now. He speaks about entrepreneurship, but when and if they become successful, he will call them 'rich' and take their hardearned money. Ev erything he says is contradictory. Where are these people to live? I hope they all find shelter next door to all the people who voted for him, along with the millions of other immigrants. Don't think they won't be! Do we have the resources to take on millions upon millions? Of all the water on this earth, under gravity, only 1 percent is fit for human and animal consumption. In America's early days, new citizens migrating West had gun fights ov er water rights. This is a global problem. Why don't we have the right to vote on these important issues? Why is he absolutely vehement on bringing in all these people? He does have his reasons, you know. Ha ven't you Obama butt-kissers wondered about this, too? He r e's one of his latest bird-brained ideas: He wants more safety in Football! This is just too much, even for him. I don't think he's thinking of the millions and millions of Football (sports) fans in America. I think he will be in for more than one surprise if he messes with the NFL! F ans are voters too, Mr. Double Talker.Re: FEMAThe writer talks about a special group of property owners who receive a subsidy. After our dual hurricanes, a neighbor informed me that my tenants had vacated my home they were renting. Arriving at the home, I discovered the inside was destroyed, dog feces everywhere and the central air conditioning unit was destroyed. N eighbors said the tenants bragged they had received a check from FEMA for damages from the hurricane, and moved out without my knowledge and of course, no forwarding information. I was so upset that they received money for damages. There was absolutely no damage from either hurricane, the damage was from the tenants. I left several messages and my contact info with FEMA letting them know I knew of a fraud. No one ever returned my calls. I t's no wonder they claim to be losing money, they are giving it away without verifying all the facts. All the r epairs and clean-up came out of my pocket, not the gover nm ent.A U.S. PonziF or years, the U. S. Treasury has taken our payments, designated for our Social Security, and spent it on all kinds of wasteful and frivolous giveaways. To cover themselves, they dreamed up a pretense of putting IOUs in a so-called lock box. It is a scam. Texas governor Rick Perry has exposed it as a giant Ponzi scheme.On gunsS top with the big lie that "politicians want to take our guns away." They are talking about banning semi-assault and assault weapons and magazines that hold over 10 r ounds. That is not banning our guns, it's keeping militarystyle weapons away from maniacs who butcher civilians. What is wrong with that? F avoritism?Pr esident Obama's two daughters attend the prestigious Si dwell Friends private school. No inferior public schools for them. It's perfectly OK to have armed guards at the White House and everywhere he and his family travel. But, no guns anywhere near public schools to protect our children. Go figure.National debtLed by President Obama, the U.S. has become the largest debtor nation on the face of the earth, the largest debtor nation in the history of the world. Any government, like any family, can for a year spend a little more than it earns, but it's clear that a continuation of the habit means the poorhouse. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail news@hometownnewsol.com. C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Modern family life can sure be confusing. Sure, all this new technology that we're all blessed with does make us more efficient, but it also comes at a price. As each of us gets better at managing our own schedules and such, it gets harder and harder for today's family to stay coordinated. M om has her own schedule and list of priorities, Dad has his own stuff going on, and with each family member added to the list, keeping family activities and priorities coordinated gets harder all the time. Thank God our pets don't have their own agendas or things could get real confusing! No w, I'm not saying that this is something new families have always had to juggle the priorities and commitments of all the family members, but in the past back in the day when everyone sat down to dinner every night and communicated face to face rather than by text or through messages posted on each other's F acebook "walls" families we re more likely to see each other every day and talk about what's going on. What I'm saying is that today things move so fast that the modern family can have a hard time keeping everything straight. W ouldn't it be nice if we could use the same technology that makes us so efficient (and therefore so much busier) to manage the family's differing schedule efficiently, too? W ell, I'm happy to report that the answer is yes! Fire up your web browser and head on over to www.cozi.com and take a look around. What you'll find is a central hub that was designed to help families keep all the differing tasks and priorities of each family member in one place and y et available "everywhere" at the same time. Co zi offers a private, shared online calendar, grocery shopping list and todo list that the whole family can access anytime and anywhere. This way the whole family has instant access to the family schedule and can check things off as they get done, keeping everyone informed as to the status of everyone's priorities. K ind of like the good old "kitchen calendar" of days past, only with Cozi you don't have to be in the kitchen to see it. Co zi offers an automatic color-coded system so everyone can see at a glance where they are supposed to be and when they're supposed to be there. This is great for avoiding conflicting schedules and makes managing multiple tasks simple. Cozi will even synchronize with Outlook's calendar so you don't have to make entries twice. Add an event in your Outlook calendar and it shows up in Co zi color coded for you, without having to update the family calendar manually. Things like shopping lists and to-do lists are centralized with Cozi, too. For instance, with your shopping list in one place and accessible by everyone, you can shop and check things off your list from your Android or iPhone app while shopping. Don't have a new ultra-fancy smart phone that will run the free Cozi app? That's OK, too. If your phone has web access, you can log on from your phone's browser and still be able to check things off in real time. Y ou can even call a toll-free number and have your list r ead to you over the phone or sent to you by text. Co zi isn't just about calendars and shopping lists, either. The "Family J ournal" section is an awesome way to be able to capture special moments and memories and have them uploaded to a central family bulletin board. Again, the iPhone or Android app makes this super easy, but even without a smart phone Co zi makes accessing the family journal a snap from any web browser.

L isten to him on Seaview AM 960,FM 95.9 and FM 106.9, which can be streamed at www.SeaviewRadio.com every Saturday morning between 9 a.m.and 10 a.m.Buying, leasing, or servicing a car is in an "e volutionary time warp" compared with most other retail transactions. B uying an iPhone from an A pple store, a TV set from Ta r get, or a dress from Macy's is actually a pleasant experience. People shop in modern stores as a form of pleasurable recreation without any intention of buying anything. My wife, Nancy, and I go to C ostco often on Saturdays, not because we have a lot to buy, but because it's a pleasurable way to spend an hour or two. C ontrast this with buying a car, which many compare to having a root canal or a colonoscopy. F lash back about 75 years in the retail evolutionary tree, and you have the "21st century" car-buying experience. Everybody you deal with is paid a commission on whatever you buy a car, service for your car, parts for y our car, or financing or insurance for your car. This commission is directly proportional to how high a price they can coerce you into paying for the car, part, service, finance or insurance. Fu r thermore, everybody pays a different price for everything they buy. You might buy a new 2013 Jeep Wr angler Sahara today for one price and find out that y our next door neighbor paid $2,000 less the following day from the same Jeep dealer y ou bought yours from. In fact, it's almost certain that she paid a different price than what you paid. The price each of you paid depended on the buying and negotiating skills of you and y our neighbor. The difference in price is also affected by the skill, ethics and integrity of the car salesman and manager you dealt with. C ar salesmen, on the average, earn about 25 percent of the profit they make when they sell or lease y ou a car. The average profit on a new car is about $2,000, but this average is made up of wild variations from "zero profit" to $20,000 and even higher. Why would a car salesman sell a car for zero profit if he's paid on commission?" y ou ask. There are two reasons. F irst, some cars are "real dogs," very hard to sell and may have sat on the dealer's lot for months or even years. S alesmen are paid what is called a "flat commission" to sell these "dogs," anywhere from $100 to $1,000. The second reason is that manufacturers often pay big bonus money to dealers for hitting a monthly objective. To ward the end of the month, dealers will also pay flat commission to salesmen so that they can hit their volume objective. How could a dealer possibly make a $20,000 profit on a car?" you may also ask. The most common way is by leasing a car, and tricking the customer into thinking he is buying the car. A large down payment or trade in added to the normal profit on a lease can be gigantic, and the monthly payment is r educed so much by the down payment that the unsuspecting lessor is not suspicious. S ometimes people are talked into leasing by the salesman promising them that they can return the car at any time, just as if it was a daily rental. R emember that a salesman will earn a $5,000 commission on a lease with a $20,000 profit. Another way people are tricked into paying exorbitant profits when buying is by dealers marking up the manufacturer's sticker price with an addendum label. The dealer advertises that price as the "list price" or sticker price" but what he doesn't tell you is that it's his sticker/list price, usually thousands higher than the manufacturer's MSRP. The same wild variation in price for the same products or services also applies to what you pay for service, parts, finance and insurance. Y our neighbor, who was smart enough to finance his car with his credit union, can easily save $3,000 over what y ou paid in the dealer's finance and insurance department if you weren't careful. If y ou allowed the "assistant service manager" or service advisor," who is r eally a commissioned service salesman, to sell you unneeded services, you also paid more than your more careful, prepared neighbor. As most regular readers of my blog, newspaper column and listeners to my radio show know, my mission is to educate you so that you will be the winner in the contest between the car salesman, service salesman and finance and insurance salesman. My frustration is that you're probably already survivors." The mere fact that you r ead my blog and column §and listen to my radio show proves that you're trying to improve your skills, and you are not overly trusting of car dealers who may be out to deceive you. In other words, I'm "preaching to the choir" in a sense. Last week, I received a call from an 82-year-old man who thought he had bought a new 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe but found out when he drove it home he had signed a lease, not a purchase contract. The dealer made at least a $15,000 profit and the salesman made about a $3,750 commission. When he realized what they had done to him, he brought the car back and offered the dealer $1,000 to take back the Hyundai Santa Fe and r eturn his trade-in, a 2010 S anta Fe. They refused, saying "You signed the paper and you've leased a car." I'm working with the elderly man now to try and help any way I can. I've spoken to the general manager of the Hyundai store, and am trying to get him to do the right thing. At this point, things don't look too promising. The problem is that there's a group in our society that are, unfortunately, natural victims. They're too trusting, not w ell enough educated, very y oung (first car purchase), mental faculties failing (maybe the last car purchase), or language impaired (immigrants). U nscrupulous car dealers and salesmen lay in wait for these victims, just like a lion lays in wait on the Serengeti plains for a young or injured antelope. That's why I used "survival of the fittest" in my title. Y ou can easily recognize the advertisements that are aimed at the victims. You'll see or hear phrases like "W e' ll match your down payment," "We'll allow you $8,000 over book for your trade-in," "We guarantee the lowest price," "Bad credit or ON CARSEARL STEWART See S TEWART, A8

PORT ST. LUCIE The St. L ucie Medical Center Auxiliary has successfully established and implemented a new program at the hospital. The volunteer patient repr esentative program is a service with a mission that is a bit different from most volunteer services. This program is designed to interact with patients and their families at the hospital. The auxiliary is excited r egarding the success of the new program as we conclude our first year of operation," said Maryann Prell, chairwoman of the new program. V olunteers explain various hospital programs that are available to patients. Ms. Pr ell said it is a wonderful experience to just sit next to an emotionally, concerned or lonely patient or family member. "W e may hold their hand and just listen to what they have to say. We never give advice, but we have experienced that the simple act of verbalizing, to a non-judgmental listener, often brings clarity and peace of mind to the patient," she said. P atients often share with volunteers little problems they do not want to bother the staff with, i.e. squeaks, door noises in the hall, too dark, too light or their room not being a comfortable temperature. The volunteer can take care of these problems right away. These types of concerns maybe minute, but we realize no one wants to be in the hospital, but while they are at our hospital, we want them to be as comfortable as possible," she said.

Locally there have been cases reported in Palm Beach and Highlands counties. Clinical signs of canine influenza include persistent, occasionally moist productive cough, low grade fever, nasal discharge, lethargy, inappetance, and in severe cases, pneumonia, and even death.The cough can persist up to a month and can be confused with the less virulent kennel cough.Kennel cough is caused by the bacteria Bordeteila bronchiseptica and is treated with antibiotics.Canine influenza should be suspected in a dog that does not respond quickly to antibiotics. Dogs that are at highest risk are ones that are kenneled in boarding facilities, go to grooming salons, doggie parks, and areas where they are exposed to other dogs.Canine influenza is generally spread through aerosol contact through coughing, direct contact like kissing, licking, and nuzzling. Tr ansmission can also occur through contact with contaminated surfaces and clothing.A person can transmit the virus when they get the virus on their hands and touch things like doorknobs exposing other people to the virus. There is no specific treatment for canine influenza. T reatment is supportive with antibiotics, hospitalization, iv fluids, and good nutritional support.Infected patients sometimes need to be hospitalized for many days on oxygen support. Prevention and minimizing exposure is the key to controlling the disease.A well cared for dog, that is up to date on its v accines, on a good plane of nutrition, and is current on heartworm prevention will be much more likely to have a good immune system, and more capable of fighting the disease. There is an effective, safe vaccine to prevent the canine influenza virus.It is given twice the first year/2 weeks apart, and then yearly after that.Dogs that are boarded or groomed regularly should be vaccinated and pet owners should select those establishments that require dogs to be vaccinated against canine influenza over those that do not.Dog owners should avoid areas where dogs congregate like stores, doggie parks, kennels, and grooming shops when news that the virus is present, in a particular area.

LUCIE Fresh fruit, lush plants, puppies, woodwork and reggae are some of the vast array of surprises visitors will find at the C ommunity Green Market. Each Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., market organizer and founder Arthur D'Amato makes sure patrons find hidden local treasures alongside the bounties of fresh fruit and vegetables and organic products. This market is comparable to any other local market," said Mr. D'Amato. "We have a great location at the Civic Center, so we bring in a mix of people along with a mix of selected vendors. P eople are very happy that they don't have to drive far to find everything they want." S ince opening a few months ago, Mr. D'Amato said the market has grown tremendously. They have moved the market out of the grassy area in front of the civic center to the cemented area in front of the entrance. The market is now more accessible to mothers who are pushing baby strollers and those who may have physical limitations and need the assistance of a wheelchair," he said. I nitially, the market was going to close May. 25, but now plans are to stay open y ear-round. The market is expanding and the vendors wanted to stay open all year. Because it's so popular, we decided to honor their requests." Among the many popular stops at the market is the live music area, which offers the sounds of local reggae music. There is also an area to sit and relax or eat some of the hot food or drinks offered by vendors. The market is pet-friendly and also offers a tent manned by the H umane Society of St. Lucie C ounty. The Humane Society offers pets for adoption as well as information about the organization. Mr. D'Amato said the future looks bright for the market. "W e, in conjunction with the Civic Center, are trying to bring an RV or boat show to the area," he said. "We'd still host the market at the same time, bringing our goods to the many people who would be visiting the show. It's a win-win."

LUCIE COUNTY St. L ucie County has two new artificial reefs after deploying more than 2,000 tons of concrete light poles that were donated by Florida Power & Light Company. D eployed by McCulley Ma r ine Services and SeaRover Se r vices in late December, the two new artificial reefs have maximum profiles of 27 and 25 feet and are located several miles offshore in depths of 62 feet and 102 feet. The reefs consist primarily of 130 concrete power poles that were r eplaced by FPL just south of Easy Street in Port St. Lucie. F unding for these new reefs came from a Florida Fish and W ildlife Conservation Commission grant and the St. L ucie County Erosion District. Pr eliminary GPS locations for the two new St. Lucie C ounty artificial reefs are: N 27¡23.551 and W 80¡02. 961' max depth: 102 feet. N 27¡32.083' and W 80¡ 11.433' maximum depth: 62 feet. Artificial reefs at similar depths have supported gag, Goliath grouper, red snapper, scamp and snook. A study by the University of F lorida shows that artificial r eefs attract more than just marine life. After studying six southwest Florida counties' artificial reef programs, r esearchers were able to show that the reefs reeled in more than $253 million into the r egion during one year. While it only costs a saltwater fishing license to use the submerged structures as a fishing spot, anglers spend money on food, lodging, fuel, tackle and other necessities. R esearchers found that $136 million came from residents, while $117 million was spent by visitors. S ince its reinstatement in 2005, St. Lucie County's Artificial Reef Program has spared more than 18,000 thousand tons of clean concrete from the landfill, while at the same time creating nearly 50 underwater habitats for marine life, fishermen and divers to enjoy. R eports from divers indicate that the reefs are providing habitat for more than 100 species of fish, including adult snapper and grouper, snook, sharks and other fishes as well as baitfish and juvenile fishes.

STUART A moving letter from a family who sold their house to pay for cancer treatments and a conversation with another recovering from a recent foreclosure reassures Robin S utherland, YMCA's director of special projects, of the importance of her organization's annual Easter House r affle to the community. F or 26 years YMCA of the Tr easure Coast has raffled a dream house, with tickets selling for $10. For the last two years, the group has partnered with developer DR Horton to offer homes in the Murano Community in P alm City, just off Sunset Tr ail. The website, ymcaeasterhouse.org, describes the house as three-bedroom, two-bath with a two-car garage and covered patio. R affle organizers said the winner would get a house worth around $230,000 for the price of a $10 ticket. "E xpenses continue to r ise every year, but we've kept the ticket price steady for 26 years," Ms. Sutherland said. "We feel anybody can afford a $10 chance to win a house." R affle sales have typically been strong for the nonprofit, which sold 62,749 tickets last year. B ut this year, sales lagged, perhaps because many of its buyers are part-time residents who travel from the northeast, and have r emained home to deal with the after-effects of Hurricane Sandy. YMCA officials had projected sales of around 65,886 tickets this year, but are about $30,000 off budget, compared to this time last year. Officials said fewer guests are visiting the model house and supporters are assuming they have more time than they do to purchase r affle tickets for the March 28 drawing. "J anuary tends to be a slow time for us. People think of Easter House as something for Easter time, and they wait for the last minute to buy their tickets. The date of Easter changes every year, but they're usually not thinking of buying Easter House tickets until Ap ri l, and by then the drawing would have already come and gone," Ms. S utherland said. "W e' re just trying to get the word out that the house is open for tours." The model house is open for tours every day from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. It is located at 2689 S.W. Gallery Circle, Palm Circle, off High M eadow Road. Customers who buy three tickets at a time are eligible to win a second prize of an eightday, seven-night Caribbean cruise for two on the Norwegian Epic. That prize is worth $9,500 and is fully transferable.

LUCIE The Po rt S t. Lucie Historical Society presented the Boys & G irls Club of St. Lucie County Chuck Hill Unit with a check for $2,569, the r emaining funds collected from the Jack Kelly farewell party. Mr. Kelly served on the Po rt S t. Lucie City Council for 12 years in district four before retiring in November. A farewell tribute party, presented by the Port St. Lucie H istorical Society, was held in December at the Port St. L ucie Botanical Gardens. At a time when hundreds of children and teens in St. L ucie County are not receiving the guidance they need to graduate from high school, avoid the effects of violence, gangs and drugs, or become responsible adults, the Boys & Girls Club of St. L ucie County 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 to help fund the club. It costs the organization $1,000 per child to be a member in the afterschool program per y ear. Costs are kept as low as $10 per year for members, as many are on free or reduced lunches. The Port St. Lucie Historical Society donated $2,569 to sponsor club members to attend the Chuck Hill Unit and participate in their effective youth development programs. 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. The Boys & Girls Club of S t. Lucie County is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the youth of the community. With 18 locations throughout the county, the Boys & Girls Club programs serve a diverse group of more than 4,200 kids ages 5-18.

LUCIE COUNTY Once again, the St. Lucie C ounty Fair has planned 10 days of fun for the whole family from clowns to crooners and everything in between. "W e try to bring in something new every year, but keep the old favorites," said Jeanne Keaton, the general manager of the fairgrounds. Last year, the St. Lucie C ounty Fair saw 119,000 people pass through its gates to enjoy the rides, exhibits and special concerts. This year is no different. T wo concerts are featured this year, and both offer free seating. "I t' s our gift to the St. L ucie County residents," said Ms. Keaton. The first concert featuring the group The Guess Who, will perform the first night of the fair on Feb. 22. B ut if one doesn't care for live music, there are also rides, school exhibits, r acing pigs, a clown circus, a rowdy rooster stage show, a master hypnotist and a 12-string guitarist to enjoy. And that's just the first night. Pa r king is $3 per vehicle, and admission is $3 for children aged 6 to 12; $10 for adults age 13 to 49; and $5 for seniors age 50 and older. Special prices on admissions and rides vary from day to day to make the fair affordable for every budget. The fair is all about the animals too, with exhibit barns featuring steer, pigs and small animals. Students spend all year raising the animals to bring them to the fair. There will be daily livestock competitions, shows, demonstrations and auctions by the S t. Lucie County youth. One of the highlights of this year's fair is Kellie Pickler in concert on Feb. 23. She became famous on the fifth season of the reality show American Idol, and has made a name for herself as a country singer. No w in its 48th year, the fair is honoring Florida's heritage with the theme "500 Years of Florida." There will be a variety of exhibits showing the different aspects of our F lorida heritage," Ms. K eaton said. "We were happy to coordinate that." Also on hand will be displays by residents, who compete in events such as crafty men, art and photography. Displays will showcase quilting, wood burning, scroll-saw workmanship and bowl turning. B ut no county fair can be complete without the r ides, and this year there will more than 40 rides spread across 15 acres. The r ides will also feature special pricing to make the fun affordable for everyone. The fair will be open from 4 p.m. to midnight M onday through Thursday, from 4 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. Fridays, from noon to 1:30 a.m. Saturdays and from noon until midnight S undays.

A silent auction will also be available, with donations from area residents and businesses, to help with the proceeds. This is a special event in celebration of the 50th anniversary," Mr. Kosoff said. The proceeds raised will be directed toward local initiatives supported by the United Way of St. Lucie County." The organization was first formed in the county in 1962, r aising $67,000. Just this past y ear, the organization invested $1,240,291 in the community. The choice of the name "O r ange Blossom Ball" was to help create a local identity for the event. The Orange Blossom was a natural choice, and was suggested by Bradley Guffin, a St. Lucie County resident and the board chair for this y ear's United Way board." P lanning for this extravaganza began almost a year ago by the dedicated committee made up Mr. Kosoff, Mr. Guffin and Terri SloanBa r tz. The silent auction chairwomen are Julie Bland and Marsha Thompson. Employees from Seacoast N ational Bank will be handling the silent auction that evening. The event is being cosponsored by Seacoast N ational Bank and Florida Po w er and Light. The goal of the United Way of St. Lucie County is to focus on education, income and health, and create long-lasting changes to better everyone in the community. "W e' re extremely proud of the work all United Wayfunded programs are accomplishing," said Karen Knapp, the CEO of the organization. "O ur donors will continue to see a tangible return on their investments as our community works collectively to improve lives." The Orange Blossom Ball will take place from 5:30 to 11:30 p.m. on Feb. 16 at the H arbour Ridge Yacht and C ountry Club, 12600 Harbour Ridge Blvd., in Palm City.

PORT ST. LUCIE In an emotional morning, the Port St. Lucie City Council voted 4-0 at a special meeting on Feb. 7 to accept a separ ation agreement between the city and City Manager Greg Oravec. His last day was Feb. 8. When this first started, unfortunately things began to unravel very quickly, said Mayor JoAnn Faiella. and I really wanted a fair process to this. The majority of the council wanted this to be done very quickly. Mr. Oravec and the city agreed to a separation package giving him five months of severance pay, approximately $90,000. The meeting was recessed within minutes of first starting because the final agreement had not yet been r eached, and the legal department wanted additional time to finalize the details. Mr. Oravec became city manager when Jerry Bentrott was fired by the council last year. In November, Mr. Oravec received a raise and praise from the council on his performance. A ccording to documentation compiled by Mr. Oravec, there seemed to be a conflict between him and Councilman Ron Bowen, who was elected to the position in November. The documentation also indicated Mr. Oravecs attempts to correct the strained r elationship, including asking for direction from the members of the city council and the legal department. Assistant City Manager Jeff Bremer will step into the role until a replacement has been selected. There was no discussion on how or when a replacement search will take place. C ouncilwoman Michelle Berger was out of town and not present at the meeting. S he asked me to make the statement to the council that she had posted her calendar in advance advising she was unavailable for meetings this week, said Roger Orr, the city attorney. She expressed her concern that the council would have a meeting in her absence on a matter of this importance. I m extremely sad and disappointed about what has occurred, said Councilwoman Shannon Mar tin. However, under the circumstances, the amicable separation agreement is the best course of action.

LUCIE COUNTY The next generation of scientists filled three floors of the Kight Center at Indian River State College last w eek as the St. Lucie County Regional Science Fair held its milestone 25th y ear. Mo re than 300 middle and high school projects we re entered in this years fair, and ranged from using ocean currents to generating electricity to the reproductions of amoeba. All the schools were repr esented, from middle schools and K-8s to the high school level. It also included magnet schools, charter schools and the Olivet Priv ate Academy School. These kids have worked so hard, said Beth Bonvie, one of the committee members for the science fair. The projects are exceptional this year. Thanks to a partnership with IRSC, the science fair was able to use one of its buildings to display the projects. Junior-level science projects took over the main floor, while seniorlevel projects occupied the second and third floors. In all, 13 fields of science from social science to zoology sat next to each other. Fr om the community, dozens of scientists, engineers and other experts came to the science fair on Fe b. 8 to act as judges for the event. The projects were open for the public to view on Fe b. 7. The next day, stu-Shelter nearing completion PORT ST. LUCIE The H umane Society of St. Lucie C ounty came a step closer to seeing the opening of its new shelter in Port St. Lucie on Feb. 4. Thats when the large cupola was lifted to complete the roof of the facility, scheduled to open by the end of September this year. I t s beyond words, said D avid Robertson, the director of operations for the facility. The approximately 10,500 square-foot shelter, called the Port St. Lucie Kindness C enter, will feature animal housing, a low-cost spay/neuter clinic, a volunteer and education center and a memorial wall for animals on the almost fiveacre site on Glades Cut-Off R oad. M embers of the humane societys board of directors we re on hand to witness the building milestone. B efore we even put a shovel to dirt, we spent almost five years planning this, said Joanne Ferrara, one of the board members. I t s exciting for all of us. The construction is ahead of schedule as well, according to Frank Andrews, executive director of the humane society. Hes also happy to be on budget. So far, we have 60 percent of the monies raised to pay for this project, he said. None of the money has come from operating expenses or tax dollars. The humane society, a nonprofit charity, is using bequests and capital gifts r eceived specifically for a kindness center for this project. The center will be able to house approximately 200 animals. When additional funds are available, a dog park will be added. In the meantime, the society is preparing for its annual fundraiser, the ninth annual Fur Ball and Ca tsino Night, to be held on Mar ch 9 at the Pelican Yacht Club. This year the gala has a W estern theme, and guests are encouraged to come in their best period attire for a night of cocktails, dinner, music and silent auctions. T ickets are $100 per person, and both tickets and sponsorships for the event are still available.

In addition, a number of special awards were given to specific projects from organizations such as the American Meteorogical S ociety. This event was a collabor ation among the schools, the science fair coordinators and the district, Ms. Bo nvie said.

This has been extremely difficult, she said. There was no question on my part when Mr. Oravec became the city manager.

Fire service operations were provided from seven fire stations spread throughout St Lucie County, and run volume was around 500 to 600 calls a month depending on the season. The fire district responds to about 3,400 calls a month, some 40,000 a year, out of 17 fire stations. Assistant Chief Bushman started his career in the fire service in 1977 as a Forest R anger with the Florida Division of Forestry. He moved to the Fire District in 1979 and is retiring after serving 34 years as a St L ucie County firefighter. When he joined SLCFD, most of the stations were staffed with three firefighters who were cross trained as certified firefighters, and emergency medical technicians or paramedics. Whatever the call was, we took the rescue vehicle (ambulance), or the fire truck and managed most calls with those three firefighters, said Mr. Bushman. T oday, we staff all fire stations with a minimum of four cross-trained personnel and most calls get at least five firefighters responding so that there is enough manpower to handle the emergency. The standard of care has changed rather drastically since I started, said Mr. B ushman. Both firefighting and emergency medical services has seen a multitude of regulations and standards for both equipment and the types of medications allowed to administer prior to delivering a patient to the hospital. We also have a state approved trauma center in the county which is a tremendous benefit to the citizens. One of Bushmans biggest challenges was being part of establishing a Hazardous M aterials response team for the fire district in 1991. This was partly in response to an anhydrous ammonia explosion in Fort Pierce which killed three workers, as well as the trend in the number of hazardous materials incidents that necessitated this type of specialization. Chief Bushman was also the initial on scene incident commander for the large brush fires that consumed 44 houses in Port St Lucie back in 1999. That is just one of the memories that invade your mind from time to time, said Mr. Bushman. Mother Na ture took control that day and showed all of us who was in charge. Chief Bushman has also worked every hurricane and tropical storm since Hurricane David back in 1979. I t s just what we do, anytime, anyplace, anywhere, he said. Chief Bushman will maintain his teaching credentials at Indian River State College and plans on additional volunteering with local organizations and spending time with his family traveling. Commissioners name Mets Spring Training homePORT ST. LUCIE The S t. Lucie County Board of C ounty Commissioners unanimously approved a naming rights agreement with Tradition Florida to once again rename the spring training home of the New York Mets to Tradition Field. The New York Mets are celebrating 25 years of spring training in Port St. L ucie. The ballpark, originally known as Thomas J. White Stadium, was named Tradition Field from 2004-09. W e are encouraged that the New York Mets were able to reach a deal with Tr adition. The arrangement is another positive step forward in furthering our efforts to improve M ajor League Baseball and its impacts on our community, said St. Lucie County C ommission Chairman T od Mowery W e are pleased to have a new partner for the stadiums naming rights as we look forward to a great season with the New York M ets and our Tradition partners, added St. Lucie C ounty Commissioner and T ourist Development C ouncil Chairman Chris Dzadovsky. Its apparent that the economy is back and this is a great indicator. The naming rights will generate additional revenues for both the New Yo rk Me ts and St. Lucie C ounty. The county, which pays for the debt service and operations of the facility, will receive $75,000 in the first year of the naming-rights agreement, which runs through 2017. Tr adition Field underw ent an expansion in 2012. In addition to an upgraded and enhanced scoreboard and video screen, the metal bleacher seating area beside the first base line was converted into traditional seats along with open picnic tables and outdoor bars. A paved walked away and terrace was also added to give guests easier access to the grassy outfield berm. The New York Mets will open their 2013 spring training schedule on Saturday, Feb. 23 against the W ashington Nationals at 1:10 p.m. in Port St. Lucie. The Mets will play 18 home games at Tradition Field, located at 525 NW Peacock Blv d., Port St. Lucie.

If you have played golf for any length of time, chances are the game has provided you with something that helped mold you into the person y ou are today. The greatest compliment that we can pay our game is to pass those lessons learned to the next generation. Thanks to The First Tee Tr easure Coast, the next generation has a program in place to teach our youth, ages seven through 17 living in St. Lucie and Mar tin Counties, the v alues of our great game. F ounded in the summer of 2012, the program has partnered with the Boys and Girls Club of Hobe S ound and Indiantown and the East Stuart Community C enter. The First Tee N ational School Program is being implemented in four Tr easure Coast elementary schools funded by the F lorida Junior Golf Council license program. In addition, Hammock Cr eek Golf Club in Palm City, as well as The Saints Golf Course in Port St. L ucie, have Saturday programs. Recent programs have seen a few hundred kids attend and complete the program. Usin g the game of golf as a vehicle, the program teaches The First Tee Nine Co re V alues: honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, r espect, confidence, r esponsibility, perseverance, courtesy and judgment. The mission is to impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill lifeenhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf. The creation of The First T ee Treasure Coast was made possible by the contributions of the r emarkable Hunt family. Alcoa Aluminum was founded in 1888 by Alfred H unt. In the early 1900s, Ro y A. Hunt worked his way from mill clerk to chairman. The Roy A. Hunt F oundation traces its roots back to 1951, when Roy and his wife Rachel established the family foundation in Pittsburgh to support organizations that strive to improve the quality of life. In 1996, the Foundation set up three special initiatives, one being youth development. Twice a year, three generations of the H unt family gather from across the country to make grants to worthy non-profit organizations. Andrew Hunt, a Treasure C oast resident and chairman of the Roy A. Hunt F oundation's Youth De velopment Initiative, has sponsored several grants to many youth organizations including the Boys and Girls Club of S t. Lucie County. An advocate for youth development and an avid golfer himself, he has discovered that golf is a great way to connect with today's y outh. After an evaluation of junior golf programs, it became clear that The First T ee is a perfect fit for the Tr easure Coast, said Mr. H unt. The First Tee offers a lot more than learning golf as character building. Co re v alues and healthy habits are essential elements of the program. In M ay of 2012, he attended a breakfast meeting at The Breakers R esort in Palm Beach with former President George W. B ush, the Honorary Chairman of The First Tee. At the meeting, Mr. Hunt accepted the invitation to become a Trustee. His commitment accelerated the impact and presence of The First Tee in the Treasure Coast Region. Mr. Hunt joined The First T ee Treasure Coast Council of Directors and serves as chairman of the chapter. Charlie D'Agata, a close r elative of Mr. Hunt, also joined the council as vice chairman. Mr. D'Agata's main focus is to articulate the mission of The First Tee to major funding and social agencies, institutions, media and local government. He has a long history of service to Tr easure Coast non-profit and community organizations, including serving on four of their local boards of directors. Br inging new trustees to The First Tee is a very important endeavor for The Campaign for 10 M illion Young People as they seek to raise funds that will expand the reach of the character education and life-skills programs to help young people prepare for success in high school, college and life. We can all stand to be a little more honest. Integrity in life is one of the world's most important traits. Sho wing sportsmanship and conducting yourself in a respectful manner will get anyone far in life, as will respecting yourself, y our partners, your opponents, the course and traditions. Being confident is a great feeling. B eing responsible for y our own actions has sadly become something our world has lost sight of. To truly succeed, one must learn perseverance. A little courtesy goes a long way. S haking someone's hand, giving credit where it's due has become another lost art. F inally, learning good judgment to make a decision or form an opinion takes time to master. S tarting the process early pays big dividends.

Where are the hairnets?My wife was an accredited chef and after being told only once that she must wear a hairnet and gloves every time she was preparing food, she never went without again. So how come a Fort Pierce Central High School student was not wearing either a hairnet or gloves in her picture in the H ometown News of Feb. 8, 2013? Her long braided hair was almost into the chocolate mousse she was preparing. S ame thing as to the other students, also pictured without hairnets or gloves. One had extremely long hair and a beard. Shame on all of you. When was the last time these folks were checked out for food code violations? Extremely gross. I don't want to purchase food by any of these people because hair and germs may be contained in the products they prepare for the general public.Obamas lottery?H ey heres a title for the welfare program; call it either the Obama lottery or the government lottery, all you have do to qualify is be female, have kids, be unwed, and for the gals, just dont give the government your mans social security, or then hell have to pay for his own kids. God forbid that would happen. Heres an idea for the doctors: if these females are on welfare, then they should be made not to produce anymore at the taxpayer expense. Now that would slowly end poverty. Or, the government should make it where they have to get a license to get pregnant. H eck, you have to have a license for everything else. Why not for the people on welfare? The taxpayer should get paid back from those who want an easy life without working. Sounds cruel, huh? Well, so is having kids without r eally wanting them, just to maintain yourselves on the government payroll. Sick and madWe are grandparents and great-grandparents of nine wonderful kids. That said, we are both sick and mad at all the adults that voted for Mr. Obama. How could any caring senior vote for a man that is spending at such a rate that he will saddle out kids forever with debt? How could you be so selfish as to destroy your kids? We dont condone it, but we see why selfish unions do it. We also know why minorities do it. But for seniors, well, its just wrong. Its like the bumper stickers I see around, saying you cant be catholic and for abortion. Well you cannot be a grandparent and vote for Obama. Shame on you!Double talkObama's comments on New Amnesty Immigrants are double talk and two-faced. He stated, "They must learn English, get a job and pay Taxes. N umber one, learning English or any language takes time or schooling. Number two, what kind of jobs can they (or Obama) expect to get without speaking English? Number three, how can they pay taxes with no job? There are no jobs for American citizens now. He speaks about entrepreneurship, but when and if they become successful, he will call them 'rich' and take their hardearned money. Ev erything he says is contradictory. Where are these people to live? I hope they all find shelter next door to all the people who voted for him, along with the millions of other immigrants. Don't think they won't be! Do we have the resources to take on millions upon millions? Of all the water on this earth, under gravity, only 1 percent is fit for human and animal consumption. In America's early days, new citizens migrating West had gun fights ov er water rights. This is a global problem. Why don't we have the right to vote on these important issues? Why is he absolutely vehement on bringing in all these people? He does have his reasons, you know. Ha ven't you Obama butt-kissers wondered about this, too? Her e's one of his latest bird-brained ideas: He wants more safety in Football! This is just too much, even for him. I don't think he's thinking of the millions and millions of Football (sports) fans in America. I think he will be in for more than one surprise if he messes with the NFL! F ans are voters too, Mr. Double Talker.Re: FEMAThe writer talks about a special group of property owners who receive a subsidy. After our dual hurricanes, a neighbor informed me that my tenants had vacated my home they were renting. Arriving at the home, I discovered the inside was destroyed, dog feces everywhere and the central air conditioning unit was destroyed. N eighbors said the tenants bragged they had received a check from FEMA for damages from the hurricane, and moved out without my knowledge and of course, no forwarding information. I was so upset that they received money for damages. There was absolutely no damage from either hurricane, the damage was from the tenants. I left several messages and my contact info with FEMA letting them know I knew of a fraud. No one ever returned my calls. I t's no wonder they claim to be losing money, they are giving it away without verifying all the facts. All the r epairs and clean-up came out of my pocket, not the gover nment.A U.S. PonziF or years, the U. S. Treasury has taken our payments, designated for our Social Security, and spent it on all kinds of wasteful and frivolous giveaways. To cover themselves, they dreamed up a pretense of putting IOUs in a so-called lock box. It is a scam. Texas governor Rick Perry has exposed it as a giant Ponzi scheme.On gunsS top with the big lie that politicians want to take our guns away. They are talking about banning semi-assault and assault weapons and magazines that hold over 10 r ounds. That is not banning our guns, its keeping militarystyle weapons away from maniacs who butcher civilians. What is wrong with that? F avoritism?Pr esident Obama's two daughters attend the prestigious Si dwell Friends private school. No inferior public schools for them. It's perfectly OK to have armed guards at the White House and everywhere he and his family travel. But, no guns anywhere near public schools to protect our children. Go figure.National debtLed by President Obama, the U.S. has become the largest debtor nation on the face of the earth, the largest debtor nation in the history of the world. Any government, like any family, can for a year spend a little more than it earns, but it's clear that a continuation of the habit means the poorhouse. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail news@hometownnewsol.com. C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Modern family life can sure be confusing. Sure, all this new technology that were all blessed with does make us more efficient, but it also comes at a price. As each of us gets better at managing our own schedules and such, it gets harder and harder for todays family to stay coordinated. M om has her own schedule and list of priorities, Dad has his own stuff going on, and with each family member added to the list, keeping family activities and priorities coordinated gets harder all the time. Thank God our pets dont have their own agendas or things could get real confusing! Now, Im not saying that this is something new families have always had to juggle the priorities and commitments of all the family members, but in the past back in the day when everyone sat down to dinner every night and communicated face to face rather than by text or through messages posted on each others F acebook walls families we re more likely to see each other every day and talk about whats going on. What Im saying is that today things move so fast that the modern family can have a hard time keeping everything straight. W ouldnt it be nice if we could use the same technology that makes us so efficient (and therefore so much busier) to manage the familys differing schedule efficiently, too? W ell, Im happy to report that the answer is yes! Fire up your web browser and head on over to www.cozi.com and take a look around. What youll find is a central hub that was designed to help families keep all the differing tasks and priorities of each family member in one place and y et available everywhere at the same time. Cozi offers a private, shared online calendar, grocery shopping list and todo list that the whole family can access anytime and anywhere. This way the whole family has instant access to the family schedule and can check things off as they get done, keeping everyone informed as to the status of everyones priorities. K ind of like the good old kitchen calendar of days past, only with Cozi you dont have to be in the kitchen to see it. Cozi offers an automatic color-coded system so everyone can see at a glance where they are supposed to be and when theyre supposed to be there. This is great for avoiding conflicting schedules and makes managing multiple tasks simple. Cozi will even synchronize with Outlooks calendar so you dont have to make entries twice. Add an event in your Outlook calendar and it shows up in Cozi color coded for you, without having to update the family calendar manually. Things like shopping lists and to-do lists are centralized with Cozi, too. For instance, with your shopping list in one place and accessible by everyone, you can shop and check things off your list from your Android or iPhone app while shopping. Dont have a new ultra-fancy smart phone that will run the free Cozi app? Thats OK, too. If your phone has web access, you can log on from your phones browser and still be able to check things off in real time. Y ou can even call a toll-free number and have your list r ead to you over the phone or sent to you by text. Cozi isnt just about calendars and shopping lists, either. The Family J ournal section is an awesome way to be able to capture special moments and memories and have them uploaded to a central family bulletin board. Again, the iPhone or Android app makes this super easy, but even without a smart phone Cozi makes accessing the family journal a snap from any web browser. It r eally is simple to use and with each family member posting picturesMaking home organization easy 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.

L isten to him on Seaview AM 960,FM 95.9 and FM 106.9, which can be streamed at www.SeaviewRadio.com every Saturday morning between 9 a.m.and 10 a.m.Buying, leasing, or servicing a car is in an e volutionary time warp compared with most other retail transactions. B uying an iPhone from an A pple store, a TV set from Tar get, or a dress from Macys is actually a pleasant experience. People shop in modern stores as a form of pleasurable recreation without any intention of buying anything. My wife, Nancy, and I go to C ostco often on Saturdays, not because we have a lot to buy, but because its a pleasurable way to spend an hour or two. C ontrast this with buying a car, which many compare to having a root canal or a colonoscopy. F lash back about 75 years in the retail evolutionary tree, and you have the st century car-buying experience. Everybody you deal with is paid a commission on whatever you buy a car, service for your car, parts for y our car, or financing or insurance for your car. This commission is directly proportional to how high a price they can coerce you into paying for the car, part, service, finance or insurance. Fur thermore, everybody pays a different price for everything they buy. You might buy a new 2013 Jeep Wr angler Sahara today for one price and find out that y our next door neighbor paid $2,000 less the following day from the same Jeep dealer y ou bought yours from. In fact, its almost certain that she paid a different price than what you paid. The price each of you paid depended on the buying and negotiating skills of you and y our neighbor. The difference in price is also affected by the skill, ethics and integrity of the car salesman and manager you dealt with. C ar salesmen, on the average, earn about 25 percent of the profit they make when they sell or lease y ou a car. The average profit on a new car is about $2,000, but this average is made up of wild variations from zero profit to $20,000 and even higher. Why would a car salesman sell a car for zero profit if hes paid on commission? y ou ask. There are two reasons. F irst, some cars are real dogs, very hard to sell and may have sat on the dealers lot for months or even years. S alesmen are paid what is called a flat commission to sell these dogs, anywhere from $100 to $1,000. The second reason is that manufacturers often pay big bonus money to dealers for hitting a monthly objective. To ward the end of the month, dealers will also pay flat commission to salesmen so that they can hit their volume objective. How could a dealer possibly make a $20,000 profit on a car? you may also ask. The most common way is by leasing a car, and tricking the customer into thinking he is buying the car. A large down payment or trade in added to the normal profit on a lease can be gigantic, and the monthly payment is r educed so much by the down payment that the unsuspecting lessor is not suspicious. S ometimes people are talked into leasing by the salesman promising them that they can return the car at any time, just as if it was a daily rental. R emember that a salesman will earn a $5,000 commission on a lease with a $20,000 profit. Another way people are tricked into paying exorbitant profits when buying is by dealers marking up the manufacturers sticker price with an addendum label. The dealer advertises that price as the list price or sticker price but what he doesnt tell you is that its his sticker/list price, usually thousands higher than the manufacturers MSRP. The same wild variation in price for the same products or services also applies to what you pay for service, parts, finance and insurance. Y our neighbor, who was smart enough to finance his car with his credit union, can easily save $3,000 over what y ou paid in the dealers finance and insurance department if you werent careful. If you allowed the assistant service manager or service advisor, who is r eally a commissioned service salesman, to sell you unneeded services, you also paid more than your more careful, prepared neighbor. As most regular readers of my blog, newspaper column and listeners to my radio show know, my mission is to educate you so that you will be the winner in the contest between the car salesman, service salesman and finance and insurance salesman. My frustration is that youre probably already survivors. The mere fact that you r ead my blog and column and listen to my radio show proves that youre trying to improve your skills, and you are not overly trusting of car dealers who may be out to deceive you. In other words, Im preaching to the choir in a sense. Last week, I received a call from an 82-year-old man who thought he had bought a new 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe but found out when he drove it home he had signed a lease, not a purchase contract. The dealer made at least a $15,000 profit and the salesman made about a $3,750 commission. When he realized what they had done to him, he brought the car back and offered the dealer $1,000 to take back the Hyundai Santa Fe and r eturn his trade-in, a 2010 S anta Fe. They refused, saying You signed the paper and youve leased a car. Im working with the elderly man now to try and help any way I can. Ive spoken to the general manager of the Hyundai store, and am trying to get him to do the right thing. At this point, things dont look too promising. The problem is that theres a group in our society that are, unfortunately, natural victims. Theyre too trusting, not w ell enough educated, very y oung (first car purchase), mental faculties failing (maybe the last car purchase), or language impaired (immigrants). U nscrupulous car dealers and salesmen lay in wait for these victims, just like a lion lays in wait on the Serengeti plains for a young or injured antelope. Thats why I used survival of the fittest in my title. Y ou can easily recognize the advertisements that are aimed at the victims. Youll see or hear phrases like W e ll match your down payment, Well allow you $8,000 over book for your trade-in, We guarantee the lowest price, Bad credit or ON CARSEARL STEWART See S TEWART, A8

PORT ST. LUCIE The St. L ucie Medical Center Auxiliary has successfully established and implemented a new program at the hospital. The volunteer patient repr esentative program is a service with a mission that is a bit different from most volunteer services. This program is designed to interact with patients and their families at the hospital. The auxiliary is excited r egarding the success of the new program as we conclude our first year of operation, said Maryann Prell, chairwoman of the new program. V olunteers explain various hospital programs that are available to patients. Ms. Pr ell said it is a wonderful experience to just sit next to an emotionally, concerned or lonely patient or family member. W e may hold their hand and just listen to what they have to say. We never give advice, but we have experienced that the simple act of verbalizing, to a non-judgmental listener, often brings clarity and peace of mind to the patient, she said. P atients often share with volunteers little problems they do not want to bother the staff with, i.e. squeaks, door noises in the hall, too dark, too light or their room not being a comfortable temperature. The volunteer can take care of these problems right away. These types of concerns maybe minute, but we realize no one wants to be in the hospital, but while they are at our hospital, we want them to be as comfortable as possible, she said.

The victims flock into dealerships that run these ads like sheep to the slaughter. B ecause I dont advertise this way, I rarely see victims in my Toyota dealership. My customers are mostly well-informed consumers and lucky for me, there are a lot of them and they are growing in numbers.

How ever, I must say that as a businessman and a humanitarian, Im very sorry that I cannot sell cars to those who suffer the most, the victims of our society.

Locally there have been cases reported in Palm Beach and Highlands counties. Clinical signs of canine influenza include persistent, occasionally moist productive cough, low grade fever, nasal discharge, lethargy, inappetance, and in severe cases, pneumonia, and even death.The cough can persist up to a month and can be confused with the less virulent kennel cough.Kennel cough is caused by the bacteria Bordeteila bronchiseptica and is treated with antibiotics.Canine influenza should be suspected in a dog that does not respond quickly to antibiotics. Dogs that are at highest risk are ones that are kenneled in boarding facilities, go to grooming salons, doggie parks, and areas where they are exposed to other dogs.Canine influenza is generally spread through aerosol contact through coughing, direct contact like kissing, licking, and nuzzling. Tr ansmission can also occur through contact with contaminated surfaces and clothing.A person can transmit the virus when they get the virus on their hands and touch things like doorknobs exposing other people to the virus. There is no specific treatment for canine influenza. T reatment is supportive with antibiotics, hospitalization, iv fluids, and good nutritional support.Infected patients sometimes need to be hospitalized for many days on oxygen support. Prevention and minimizing exposure is the key to controlling the disease.A well cared for dog, that is up to date on its v accines, on a good plane of nutrition, and is current on heartworm prevention will be much more likely to have a good immune system, and more capable of fighting the disease. There is an effective, safe vaccine to prevent the canine influenza virus.It is given twice the first year/2 weeks apart, and then yearly after that.Dogs that are boarded or groomed regularly should be vaccinated and pet owners should select those establishments that require dogs to be vaccinated against canine influenza over those that do not.Dog owners should avoid areas where dogs congregate like stores, doggie parks, kennels, and grooming shops when news that the virus is present, in a particular area.

STUART A moving letter from a family who sold their house to pay for cancer treatments and a conversation with another recovering from a recent foreclosure reassures Robin S utherland, YMCAs director of special projects, of the importance of her organizations annual Easter House r affle to the community. F or 26 years YMCA of the Tr easure Coast has raffled a dream house, with tickets selling for $10. For the last two years, the group has partnered with developer DR Horton to offer homes in the Murano Community in P alm City, just off Sunset Tr ail. The website, ymcaeasterhouse.org, describes the house as three-bedroom, two-bath with a two-car garage and covered patio. R affle organizers said the winner would get a house worth around $230,000 for the price of a $10 ticket. E xpenses continue to r ise every year, but weve kept the ticket price steady for 26 years, Ms. Sutherland said. We feel anybody can afford a $10 chance to win a house. R affle sales have typically been strong for the nonprofit, which sold 62,749 tickets last year. B ut this year, sales lagged, perhaps because many of its buyers are part-time residents who travel from the northeast, and have r emained home to deal with the after-effects of Hurricane Sandy. YMCA officials had projected sales of around 65,886 tickets this year, but are about $30,000 off budget, compared to this time last year. Officials said fewer guests are visiting the model house and supporters are assuming they have more time than they do to purchase r affle tickets for the March 28 drawing. J anuary tends to be a slow time for us. People think of Easter House as something for Easter time, and they wait for the last minute to buy their tickets. The date of Easter changes every year, but theyre usually not thinking of buying Easter House tickets until Ap ri l, and by then the drawing would have already come and gone, Ms. S utherland said. W e re just trying to get the word out that the house is open for tours. The model house is open for tours every day from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. It is located at 2689 S.W. Gallery Circle, Palm Circle, off High M eadow Road. Customers who buy three tickets at a time are eligible to win a second prize of an eightday, seven-night Caribbean cruise for two on the Norwegian Epic. That prize is worth $9,500 and is fully transferable.

LUCIE The Po rt S t. Lucie Historical Society presented the Boys & G irls Club of St. Lucie County Chuck Hill Unit with a check for $2,569, the r emaining funds collected from the Jack Kelly farewell party. Mr. Kelly served on the Po rt S t. Lucie City Council for 12 years in district four before retiring in November. A farewell tribute party, presented by the Port St. Lucie H istorical Society, was held in December at the Port St. L ucie Botanical Gardens. At a time when hundreds of children and teens in St. L ucie County are not receiving the guidance they need to graduate from high school, avoid the effects of violence, gangs and drugs, or become responsible adults, the Boys & Girls Club of St. L ucie County 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 to help fund the club. It costs the organization $1,000 per child to be a member in the afterschool program per y ear. Costs are kept as low as $10 per year for members, as many are on free or reduced lunches. The Port St. Lucie Historical Society donated $2,569 to sponsor club members to attend the Chuck Hill Unit and participate in their effective youth development programs. 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. The Boys & Girls Club of S t. Lucie County is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the youth of the community. With 18 locations throughout the county, the Boys & Girls Club programs serve a diverse group of more than 4,200 kids ages 5-18.

LUCIE COUNTY Once again, the St. Lucie C ounty Fair has planned 10 days of fun for the whole family from clowns to crooners and everything in between. W e try to bring in something new every year, but keep the old favorites, said Jeanne Keaton, the general manager of the fairgrounds. Last year, the St. Lucie C ounty Fair saw 119,000 people pass through its gates to enjoy the rides, exhibits and special concerts. This year is no different. T wo concerts are featured this year, and both offer free seating. I t s our gift to the St. L ucie County residents, said Ms. Keaton. The first concert featuring the group The Guess Who, will perform the first night of the fair on Feb. 22. B ut if one doesnt care for live music, there are also rides, school exhibits, r acing pigs, a clown circus, a rowdy rooster stage show, a master hypnotist and a 12-string guitarist to enjoy. And thats just the first night. Par king is $3 per vehicle, and admission is $3 for children aged 6 to 12; $10 for adults age 13 to 49; and $5 for seniors age 50 and older. Special prices on admissions and rides vary from day to day to make the fair affordable for every budget. The fair is all about the animals too, with exhibit barns featuring steer, pigs and small animals. Students spend all year raising the animals to bring them to the fair. There will be daily livestock competitions, shows, demonstrations and auctions by the S t. Lucie County youth. One of the highlights of this years fair is Kellie Pickler in concert on Feb. 23. She became famous on the fifth season of the reality show American Idol, and has made a name for herself as a country singer. Now in its 48th year, the fair is honoring Floridas heritage with the theme Years of Florida. There will be a variety of exhibits showing the different aspects of our F lorida heritage, Ms. K eaton said. We were happy to coordinate that. Also on hand will be displays by residents, who compete in events such as crafty men, art and photography. Displays will showcase quilting, wood burning, scroll-saw workmanship and bowl turning. B ut no county fair can be complete without the r ides, and this year there will more than 40 rides spread across 15 acres. The r ides will also feature special pricing to make the fun affordable for everyone. The fair will be open from 4 p.m. to midnight M onday through Thursday, from 4 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. Fridays, from noon to 1:30 a.m. Saturdays and from noon until midnight S undays.

A silent auction will also be available, with donations from area residents and businesses, to help with the proceeds. This is a special event in celebration of the 50th anniversary, Mr. Kosoff said. The proceeds raised will be directed toward local initiatives supported by the United Way of St. Lucie County. The organization was first formed in the county in 1962, r aising $67,000. Just this past y ear, the organization invested $1,240,291 in the community. The choice of the name Or ange Blossom Ball was to help create a local identity for the event. The Orange Blossom was a natural choice, and was suggested by Bradley Guffin, a St. Lucie County resident and the board chair for this y ears United Way board. P lanning for this extravaganza began almost a year ago by the dedicated committee made up Mr. Kosoff, Mr. Guffin and Terri SloanBar tz. The silent auction chairwomen are Julie Bland and Marsha Thompson. Employees from Seacoast N ational Bank will be handling the silent auction that evening. The event is being cosponsored by Seacoast N ational Bank and Florida Pow er and Light. The goal of the United Way of St. Lucie County is to focus on education, income and health, and create long-lasting changes to better everyone in the community. W e re extremely proud of the work all United Wayfunded programs are accomplishing, said Karen Knapp, the CEO of the organization. O ur donors will continue to see a tangible return on their investments as our community works collectively to improve lives. The Orange Blossom Ball will take place from 5:30 to 11:30 p.m. on Feb. 16 at the H arbour Ridge Yacht and C ountry Club, 12600 Harbour Ridge Blvd., in Palm City. Tickets are $150 per person, or $250 per couple.
