PORT ST. LUCIE For the second time in less than a year, there is a new interim city manager. At the Fe b. 11 meeting, the Port St. Lucie City Council unanimously approved for the assistant city manager, Jeff Bremer, to step into the position recently vacated by Greg Oravec. "I just want to truly thank you," said Michelle Berger, city councilwoman, to Mr. Bremer. "I thank you for the professional transition yo u' re making with the department heads." Mr. Oravec's last day was Feb. 8, when he reached an amicable separation agreement between himself and the city. Earlier in the year, Mr. Oravec had r eleased emails indicating he was experiencing working difficulties with some members of the city council. Mr. Bremer was hired by Mr. Oravec in December. Originally from Michigan, Mr. Br emer brings 34 y ears of public administration exper ience to the position. He holds a master's degree in public administration and a bachelor's degree in political science. H is dedication to public service is a family event. His grandfather served as a mayor in M uskegon, Mich., and his sons have also served in city government.

LUCIE COUNTY On Feb. 16, students from the six middle schools in S t. Lucie County spent a S aturday at Fort Pierce W estwood's Marine O ceanographic Academy in Fort Pierce competing against each other in the school district's first science bowl competition. Last year, we had a team at the regional level, but no local competition," said Steve Shotola, title one science support specialist. "This is the first time we've brought the schools together, and hopefully it is something we will be able to do every y ear." Answering questions like "What are the four main human blood types?" and "Which best describes the relationship between a human forearm and a bat's PORT ST. LUCIE The non-profit organization CASTLE helps the community by teaching the residents the skills they need to be better families. B ut sometimes, the organization that helps so many needs some help themselves. So when the city of Port St. Lucie was removing some kitchen cabinets from a home it was refurbishing for storage, building department head Joel Dramis r emembered the nonprofit, and picked up the phone to ask if the cabinets could be used. The main office has been in need of employee kitchen cabinets for several years," said Rossana Gonzalez, an employee of the nonprofit. "M r. Dr amis could have thrown them out, but he remembered our need and offered them to us." The next obstacle the nonprofit faced was getting the cabinets to the main office, but once again employees of the city stepped in to help. "W e didn't have a car big enough to transport the cabinets," Ms. Gonzalez said. "Again, the city stepped forward in the form of four employees who used their own vehicles to bring the donation to the main office." J ohn Wolf, Vince Dellacroce, Marc B all and Chuck Tyrrell made short work of the delivery and the organization now has kitchen cabinets."Thanks to everyone at the city for thinking of CASTLE," Ms. Gonzalez said. CASTLE offers parenting education for the four-county area of St. L ucie, Indian River, Martin and O keechobee counties.

I nterim City Manager Jeff Br emer was asked by Mayor J oAnn Faiella to share his thoughts. "I am willing to research and present you with some information relative to a professional headhunter for the search for a city manager," he said. "I will look to several different locations, including the Florida League of Cities, which may be able to provide that level of service for us." He indicated the service is inclusive and will have the professionalism the council is looking for. "I 'm in favor of that," said C ouncilwoman Shannon Ma r tin. "We're looking for a more statewide or national search." C ouncilwoman Michelle Be r ger, however, wanted to make sure that a national search didn't preclude the council from looking at local Sevin Bullwinkle /staff photographerF rom left, Jaqueline and Alejo Perera of Port St. Lucie, Laura and David Plunkett, Scott and Katherine Lindenberg of Fort Pierce, George and Carol Krouse of Port St. Lucie, and Steven and Brenda Hurst of Okeechobee are married at the Valentine's Day Sweet Deal Group Wedding Ceremon.

wing?," the 12 teams from S outhport Middle School, Da n McCarty K-8, Southern O aks Middle School, Forest Grove Middle School, Allapattah Flats K-8 and Fort Pierce Magnet Schools of the Arts played three r ounds, with the top four teams advancing to an elimination round. MOA and school district staff assisted with the event. "W e' re very excited to host this first event," said D ebra Kohuth, assistant principal for Fort Pierce W estwood High School, MOA campus. "This gives middle-school students a chance to see the campus and meet the teachers." Also helping with the competition were MOA students preparing for a competition of their own. The six students will be in Miami this weekend to representing St. Lucie County in the r egional competition of the O cean Bowl, where in the past two years the team has qualified for national competition. After the morning rounds, the teams traveled to the nearby Florida Atlantic University's Harbor Branch O ceanographic Center. At its education center, the top scoring teams played each other in an elimination r ound, with Forest Grove M iddle School emerging as the winners. This competition gives the school teams practice for the upcoming regional competition, which takes place on March 2 in Cocoa B each. This year, St. Lucie C ounty will be represented by six teams. INDIAN RIVER COUNTY The red, white and blue flag that represents the land of the free and the home of the brave can move some to shed proud tears and others to action. V eterans are often hailed as heroes for their service to this country, but the masses often have no clue the sacrifices and life changing events that happen during that service. Rick Wood of Fort Pierce is a combat veteran who served in operations such as D esert Shield and Desert S torm, and later served in the U.S. Army reserves, and worked as a civilian for the military, and later worked as a journalist at a military base. He is currently a film student at Indian River State C ollege and is preparing to film a 20-minute dramatic short film in Vero Beach and Fo rt Pierce based on some of his life experiences. "T ideline" follows the life of Nicole Young, a former military police captain turned therapist, working with a troubled veteran with thoughts of suicide, Mr. W ood said. "O ur intent is to start the conversation. If we can get folks talking about these things openly, we stand a good chance of possible helping veterans out there who struggle with their own experiences," Mr. Wood said in a press release. In an email interview, Mr. W ood said after he returned to the U.S. from his tours of duty, he noticed he had classic signs of post-traumatic stress disorder: difficulty concentrating, reoccurring dreams related to combat experiences and anxiety in crowded areas. "I still have to sit in the back of restaurants and face out, in the direction of the entrance," he said. C asting is currently underway and filming is expected to be in full swing by Ma y. The film will include locations in Vero Beach and Fo rt Pierce. "I t' s both difficult and cathartic to dive into the subject matter of the film," Mr. Wood said. "Post-traumatic stress disorder, loss of comrades, survivor's guilt and suicidal feelings are hard things to think about even if you have no connection. But here's the thing: the majority of deaths in the military each year don't come from the battles in the wars we are fighting. Suicide is the number one killer in the military. That's a huge thing when you look at it." Mr. Wood was 19 when he r eturned from combat in 1991. "I t took a long time to digest some of what I'd seen and things I had done. I'm still working on it," he said. Mr. Wood and his filming partner, Micah Bolen of Po r t. St. Lucie, want the film to bring veterans issues to the forefront while at the same time convey a message of hope. The film will portray potential real-life situations and reactions. In addition to addressing post traumatic stress disorder, the film will also address the issue of women in combat and sexual assault overseas, Mr. Wood said. "W omen are more likely to be sexually assaulted in a combat zone than to be injured or die from enemy action," he said. "Behind the camera, I get a chance to tell this story, share these ugly and difficult things. In a way, I get to let go of some of that baggage by doing so." "W e want veterans to know that these aren't their invisible burdens to bear."

Modern-day depressionI've heard my parents talk about the Great Depression. As a child, I never understood why it was called "great." It never seemed that great. I've heard the stories about food rations. I heard about how it brought communities together. And now I hear that as a country, we are going to pot. Du r ing my childhood, those stories seemed so distant and nothing more than the way things used to be. But now, as I struggle to make ends meet for my own family, I'm r eminded of the times in which many of our grandparents we re r aised. As we sink into this modern-day depression, I sure wish I would've taken more notice on how my grandparents made ends meet. There seems to be no light at the end of this tunnel. We are faced with decisions such as a gallon of milk or a gallon of gas; cell phone or cable; electricity or rent. Employers are struggling to make payroll. And those still fortunate enough to call themselves employees are struggling to live from one paycheck to another. B ecause we are all aware that the job market is bleak, we dare not complain about wages that are gone as soon as earned. We know that there is somebody more than willing to take the job we are fortunate enough to have. So how does one get ahead? How can we start to feel at ease? When does the comfort in knowing that having a job means having a roof over your family's head return? I suppose, we, nor anyone else, knows the answer to that question. But we can't, as a community, start turning on each other. We can't start robbing and stealing from someone who is struggling, as well. We have to start doing for each other. A pinch of kindness and a smile can go a long way. Drivers be carefulP lease, drivers, do not take your eyes off the road while y ou drive. W ith everyone in such a hurry or full of stress lately, it only takes a split second for you to accidentally run a light or sign, or someone else not seeing you coming because they reached over to tune the radio or something, and your whole day and possibly your world can change in a moment with an accident. This happened to me recently and although I was not hurt, my car is now in the shop getting fixed, and all it took was a quick, momentary distraction. Then, I had a big dent in the door. There are so many ways we can lose our focus with driving: texting, phone conversations, tuning radios, reaching on the floor for something, putting makeup on or even eating. Be careful out there, everyone, and keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel for your own protection. I could have been paralyzed for life.Seatbelt rightsThis is about the seatbelt law. We should all make our o wn choices. If you get hurt while you don't wear it, oh w ell. We are all adults. But there is a dummy on a motorcycle without a helmet flying down the road, and nobody does anything about that. Why don't they change that law?On food stampsI see people in stores with nice clothes and fancy cars, y et are buying steaks and lobsters with food stamps. My husband and I are living on $17,000 a year Social Security. I have bills I can't pay. I'm afraid that my lights or water are going to be turned off. We were turned down for food stamps. People who have fought for this country can't get them, but those who haven't been here long can.W atering the road?I drive to work every morning on A1A and there are sprinklers that shoot right into the road. Why are we watering the pavement?Health care dilemmaOne of the leading advocates of a government takeover of the nation's health care admits that, "We are the world leaders in medical innovation, research, education and advanced technology" and that we provide the best medical care in the world. How ever, she then proceeds to argue that we still must assume massive debt in attempt to change it for the better. If we are already the world leader, this sounds like throwing out the baby with the bath water.What about the victims?At a time when this nation is experiencing a wave of crime, often committed by illegal immigrants, a far left group called the Sentencing Project has come out with a r ecommendation to abolish life without parole. These dogooders who have so much sympathy for criminals seem to have little concern for those of us who are law-abiding citizens and who are so often the victims of crime.Revise systemI have a son who's incarcerated in Miami. He was sentenced to 27 years. He had no weapons or drugs. It was a r acketeering charge. He has filed motions to have his sentence reduced, but they've done nothing. He doesn't deserve this sentence. But they've done nothing. I'm very disturbed by the system.No kids at the barWhat happened to the state laws on alcohol? Aren't they supposed to be watching what goes on at places that serve alcohol? I was at a restaurant and there was a child at the bar. They serve food to children while others drink. Where are the MADD mothers?D CF needs to get it togetherI have reported abuse to the Department of Families and Children and they are doing nothing about it. They need to do their job and take care of the children. They don't understand the psychological abuse that a child goes through when they are in an abusive home. Nobody seems to care about these innocent children who have to fend for themselves. I hope somebody from the department sees this rant and does something about it. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail newsfp@hometownnewsol.com. C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Have you ever wanted to contribute some of y our own "expert knowledge" to some encyclopedia entry to bring the article up to the level you think would be most helpful to other people? Well, thanks to Wikipedia, now you can. W ikipedia ( www.wikipedia.org ) is an online encyclopedia boasting more than four million articles, all editable by its r eaders. For a size comparison, the Encyclopedia Br itannica has approximately 85,000 entries and Encarta has approximately 63,000 entries. And none of them are changeable. W ikipedia is a combination of the word "wiki" (which is an editable form of w ebsite) and the last part of the word encyclopedia. In essence it's an editable encyclopedia. The project has grown since its inception in 2001, with more articles posted every day. The beauty of it is the ability to contribute to any article by any reader, so the content of the project grows by leaps and bounds. When I first stumbled upon the site, I didn't give it much thought; it was interesting and had some good information on what I was looking for but the power of what I was looking at didn't appear to me at the time. Then, over time, I started to realize that more and more of the searches I would do on Google (or other search engines) were returning r esults from Wikipedia. Overall, I found the information returned to be r elevant, until one day I found an article that I thought needed a little clarification. After looking at the page for a bit, I found the edit button and read the frequently asked questions (FAQ) on editing a page. W ithin minutes I was adding my thoughts to that particular entry. Now the article contained the information that it was lacking. For the first time, I had actually contributed to an encyclopedia entry! OK, I know what you are thinking, "How could an encyclopedia that is edited and modified by any reader possibly be accurate?" W ell, there are some basic r ules that appear to be broken here; so what's stopping pranksters or just plain ignorant people from posting information on this site that is completely bogus? J ust because you read something on the Internet doesn't necessarily make it true. That's always important to keep in mind when surfing the Web. W ell, if you browse the site's FAQs, you will find that they have indeed addressed much of the criticism people have posed regarding the site's validity, and it seems that the checks and balances they have in place to prevent such inaccurate entries again r elies on the users themselves. Each edit or new entry gets immediately posted to the "recent changes" page where thousands of W ikipedia devotees proofr ead and verify all new entries. So, if someone posts a bogus entry, it's corrected ra pidly, usually the same day. How does one go about using Wikipedia? Type www.wikipedia.org into your W eb browser and then clicking the English link (or whatever language you are most comfortable with). This will bring you to the main page, which changes daily, where you will find some trivia, some random subjects and some news articles from va r ious sources. On the left-and side of the page, you will see a series of links, and at the top left of the page there is a search dialogue box. Type in whatever you are looking for, click search and that instantly brings you to the most r elevant match. If the results are not what y ou are looking for, look for a link labeled "other uses." This will bring you to a page that lists all the matched r esults, rather than the one match that it thinks is most r elevant. After reading up on whatever you are looking for, if you feel you have something to contribute, click the "edit this page" link and have at it. If you have trouble figuring out how to edit the page, click the "editing help" link and learn how.

Here it is: "H i Earl, good article. As a car sales professional, I have heard this saying and whilst I always approach every prospect with the right attitude, I have lost count of the number of lies I have been told. Things like: C ustomers telling you another dealer will give them an extra $4000 for their trade in when you know the dealer deals with the same wholesaler. Or the customer tells me that another dealer will throw in a polished alloy bulbar. Two problems: that product was not available for that vehicle yet, but they still insisted, and the store it was going to come from didn't even make tow bars for that model. Lo and behold, the other dealer hadn't even met this guy. Or when the customer comes to me, and we build a great rapport, then goes shopping elsewhere and buys elsewhere. Then they phone me to ask if I will match a deal that is so far below cost it couldn't be anything other than a figment of their imagination. After calling the dealer, I find out it is just that, and the real buyer was not the person who came to me. This other clown comes and parades the car and restates what deal they got, yet can't produce the invoice. That said, I love the car business and these people are part and parcel of it. I quickly work them out and eliminate them now." This comment is just another example of why car salesmen develop a negative attitude toward their customers. It's reminiscent of what soldiers do when they go to war, they demonize the enemy to justify in their minds to do their job to wound, kill or capture them. During WWII, the J apanese were the "Yellow Pe ri l" and we called them J aps. The Japanese referred to us as Yankee Devils. Just like soldiers, car salesmen are often only "following orders" and they demonize their customers when they're ordered to do things that their conscience wouldn't permit them to do to a "good person." I don't claim to be a psychologist, but I have r ead articles explaining how humans will stereotype other people in a fashion that falsely justifies their negative behavior toward those same people. We also see this with racism. If you make yourself believe that car buyers are out to take advantage of you, "buyers are liars," you can't feel guilty about tricking them into paying a dealer fee. If y ou trick a "roach" or a slug" into coming in to buy a car on credit when they probably can't, why should y ou feel guilty? After all, r oaches and slugs don't have feelings. I'm always amazed by the way car dealers who use deceptive advertising and unethical sales tactics r ationalize their behavior by actually blaming you, their customer. The following is a direct quote from an anonymous car dealer's email I received this morning in response to one of my r ecent columns in this newspaper: "I don't think you would make any of these comments if you sold Fords in a non-metro market. How do y ou expect dealers to change when consumers think they should pay less than dealer cost for a car and then walk into any other form of retail store and pay what they are asking? Your ideas are noble, but there are other dealers who have tried 'your' methods who are no longer in business." This dealer is saying that his customers are so r uthless and cunning that they won't buy a car unless they can buy it below his cost and his only solution is to trick them into thinking that they are buying it below his cost, like tacking on a dealer fee" to the price they quoted the customer. He also goes on to say that my "ideas are noble," but I can't possibly be successful and I will go broke trying. I truly appreciate his concern and I want to assure him, if he is reading this article that my business is doing very nicely. This attitude is actually a prevailing part of the culture in many car dealerships. Many dealers, dealer managers and sales people don't trust their customers. How paradoxical! They don't even like their customers. A very common expression among car dealers and their sales staff is "Buyers are liars." This means that a prospective customer will not tell you the truth about the condition of his trade-in, he will lie to you about the price he got from your competitor, and he is likely to remove those new tires that were on his trade-in when the dealer appraised it when he comes in to pick up his new car. There are also a lot of dealerships where used car buyers and people with bad credit are held in especially low esteem. They have nicknames for people with bad credit like "slugs" and "r oaches." A pparently dehumanizing these unfortunate members of our society with derogatory labels makes it easier to treat them so shabbily. People with bad credit are targeted with direct mail and newspaper ads making absurd promises that convince prospective customers that they can finance a car no matter how bad their credit. In some dealerships, applicants are coached on how to falsify credit application and pay records. In some cases, the applicant may not even know he is signing a false credit application, which is a federal offence. In most cases, the credit is refused and the applicants are not even given the courtesy of a r eturn phone call to tell them this. What these kinds of dealerships don't understand is that you must trust a person first before you can expect her to trust you. Y ou have to treat a person with respect before you can expect that person to r espect you. Somebody has got to go first. My experience over the past 40+ years as a car dealer is that 99.9 percent of my customers are good people who I can believe and trust. Those are pretty good odds, and I just assume that every customer I am dealing with is part of that 99.9 percent. Once in a great while I get burned, but the loss from that one in a thousand that takes advantage is far outweighed by the other 999, who respond positively to my trusting them and treating them with respect. Buyers don't give all the information needed ON CARSEARL STEWART

A facilitator-led, interactive kick-off workshop is to be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on March 23 at the Havert L. F enn Center, 2000 Virginia Av e. in Fort Pierce. The current port master plan has been successful with its primary infrastructure projects, Taylor Creek dredging and Second Street improvements, which have been fully funded through FDOT and are currently under way. However, the master plan includes no more projects to bring the port up-to-date to attract desired business activity. P ublic input is vital to the process of determining the Po rt of Fort Pierce's future, including identification of projects. The study team is being led by AECOM Technical Se r vices, with sub-consultants including Adams Consulting Group Inc., St. Lucie C ounty-based planner and architect Ray Chladny, and facilitator James AnastonKaras.

TREASURE COAST T aking an airboat ride can be a thrilling experience, but learning about nature unfolding around you while yo u' re r iding is what makes it a memory. That how Robert Montuoro, also known as Capt. Bo b, feels every time he takes a group out on one of his airboats. As owner of Capt. Bob's Airboat Adventures Tours, he makes sure the people that ride on his airboats experience the natural F lorida waiting just outside Ve ro Beach city limits in the B lue Cypress Conservation Area, known to locals as Lake Garcia. "I 'v e always been an outdoorsman," Capt. Bob said. "I make sure that people get to see everything that they can." H is airboat business focuses on making sure the customer has a good time. The large 20-foot-long boats offer stadium seating, so everyone has a clear view. In addition, he also provides headsets to the r iders, so they can ask questions and hear what he says during the tour. The headsets really magnify the experience," he said. "I get lots of questions, and it's easy to show people wildlife right away, as it happens." F or the first-time air boater, Capt. Bob says there's nothing to worry about. "D epending on the season, we try to tell people what they can expect and what to wear to be comfortable," he said. "We want them to have fun." S afety is a priority as well, and Capt. Bob provides 31 y ears of experience with the I ndian River County Fire D epartment before his r etirement last year with the rank of Lieutenant Emergency Medical Technician. The one-hour tours are done by reservation only, and private tours can be arranged. "W e get a lot of people from all over the Treasure C oast," he said. "It's unbelievable how popular it has grown in 10 years, and we thank our customers for that." So for a beautiful ride and a great vacation memory, call Capt.

Cats tend to be affected more readily than dogs, and kittens are the most easily infected because of their immature immune systems. Clinical signs in pets tend to be non-specific and can look like most any other form of skin disease.Scabs appear on the skin that may or may not have the red ring around them.Most cases are diagnosed when a pet has not responded to an appropriate course of antibiotics to treat the much more common staph infection. Diagnosis is made definitively with fungal cultures. Screening tests include fluorescence under a Wood's lamp and looking at hair samples microscopically.Most ringworm cases will fluoresce under a Wood's lamp;but not everything that fluoresces is ringworm.Microscopic identification can be difficult, so most veterinarians do ringworm culture tests when ringworm is suspected. T reatment is aimed at minimizing shedding of the spores into the environment while treating the patient.Some cases require shaving to facilitate topical treatment with antifungal shampoos.Oral antifungal medication:itraconazole and gr iseofulvin are the mainstays of successful treatment but it can be expensive and typically must be given for at least 6 w eeks.Infected animals should be segregated from other pets and human family members to reduce the risk of infection and to prevent shedding of infective spores throughout the environment.Lime sulfur dips can be effective, but are ve ry f oul smelling (rotten eggs), and can stain clothes and carpets.Some pets fight off the infection without treatment, b ut those cases are rare.The environment can be disinfected by using dilute bleach to disinfect animal bedding and carpets.

These colorful plants are always a sure sign of spring when they burst into full color. Even though spring is officially still several weeks away, now is the time to start planning where you want to show off these heavy bloomers. Y ou should consider a location where the plants will only receive filtered light. They do not like full direct sun all day. An area under the eaves of your house or an area that r eceives filtered sun through pine trees would be an excellent location. If y ou want your plants to live a long and healthy life, proper soil is the key. A zaleas like a soil that is acidic, with a ph of around 5.5. Generally, soil that is exposed to pine needles will be naturally acidic in nature and when mixed with a good organic soil, y ou have an excellent planting medium to give y our plants a good start. Y ou should also be sure y our plants are in a welldrained area so they won't sit in water for long periods. Preparing a raised bed is the best assurance for good drainage. Once the soil is properly prepared, you want to apply a slow-release fertilizer directly to the soil. Osmocote for acidloving plants is an excellent choice. Once you have your azaleas planted and established, the rest is easy. The beauty of these plants is that they require very little maintenance. They are not heavy feeders, and thus do not need to be fertilized on a regular basis. The best time for feeding is after they have finished their bloom cycle in the spring. Always use a slow-release fertilizer, and do not let the fertilizer come in direct contact with the roots. O kay, you got your plants established, fertilized and your soil is perfect, so what's next? The next step is to ensure that your plants bloom year after year. One of the best ways to insure this is by proper pruning. You always want to prune and shape your plants right after they have finished blooming. Don't wait till the dead of summer to do this, or you r isk losing flowers next season. Ev en though azaleas have a fairly short bloom cycle, the plants stay healthy and green all year long. Because of this, they are considered evergreens. This is what makes them such a desirable choice for a year-round plant. J ust to summarize, azaleas are heavy bloomers, they are easy to take care of and they do very well in both winter cold and hot summers provided they are in filtered sunlight.

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 C enter, so we bring in a mix of people along with a mix of selected vendors. People 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. In itially, 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 r elax or eat some of the hot food or drinks offered by vendors. The market is petfriendly and also offers a tent manned by the Humane S ociety of St. Lucie County. 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 winwin."

Last year the school nominated nearly every sports team, and this year the school is proud to do the same. F or more information on J ohn Carroll High School visit www.JohnCarrollH igh.com. One of the clubs that golfers tend to pay the least attention to is the wedge. We worry about our driver and how well our putter r olls the ball, but we seldom pay close attention to the clubs we use to truly save us when we miss a green. And if you're like most amateurs, y ou miss more than you hit in regulation. The right wedge will have a wonderful feel to it. It will have a sole that allows you to play it from different lies and increase or decrease loft as needed. Having a w edge in your bag that you are comfortable with is essential. M any pros change their w edges every few weeks as course conditions dictate and to keep wedges with fresh, sharp grooves in their bag. Being able to put spin on the ball is important to players who want to control the ball around the greens. T our Edge Exotics ( www.touredgegolf.com ) T our Prototype Wedge combines a thin, stainlesssteel face backed with a thermal elastomer gel that provides a soft feel and feedback not available in traditional steel wedges. The sole is ground to eliminate turf interaction at the heel and toe, minimizing drag and the potential for the clubface to twist, allowing for superior shot versatility. T our Edge's Triple Grind S ole lineup is available for men and women. This w edge features a traditional pear-shaped head design, and a Tour-inspired triple grind sole eliminates bounce from the heel and toe. This allows players to open and close the club when creating shots without the fear of the club digging or grabbing the turf. The CNC-milled grooves deliver precise control. S ome of the most beautiful clubs I saw at the show came from Edel Golf ( www.edelgolf.com ). The company has an inline fitting system designed to put the perfect wedge for y our unique swing into your hands. To help your wedge game, E del has moved the sweet spot toward the toe and shortened the hosel to move unwanted weight from the heel to the true center of the clubface. A rounded leading edge allows the club to sit close to the ground and maintain a square look no matter whether the club is set open, closed or square. E del offers eight different sole grinds and 18 different w edge shaft options. Using the website's online fitting page you can choose from several options, even down to the way the wedge is stamped and paint-filled to create your own personal work of art. N ot all manufacturers pay pros to play their equipment. One of the Tour's most popular wedges, and one that pros are not paid to play, comes from Fourteen ( www.fourteengolf.com ). This Japanese company forges some of the sweetest feeling clubs in the business. The company makes three lines of wedges, the RM-12, RM-11 and the J S pec IV. The new RM-12 line comes in nine lofts, two finishes and has been named to Golf Digest's 2013 H ot List. The RM-11 features grooves that are 15 percent larger for better spin and control. The J Spec IV is made from the softest forged metal available to provide great feel and touch. W ilson Golf ( www.wilson.com ) has been around for many decades and is known for its iron technology, including the new FG T our TC Wedge and the next generation of wedges featuring Traction Control technology. Aggressive Tour-Y grooves are milled for consistency and to enhance spin on full swings. Between the grooves are laser-etched micro-spin enhancers that help produce greater spin on partial shots. Two sole options and nine different loft/bounce combinations offer a choice of 54 unique combinations to find the r ight wedge for your needs. F inally, we have the Polara Golf Wedge ( www.polaragolf.com ) that will hit stores this spring. The wedges feature a corrugated grooved plate behind the face that will create 35 percent more backspin. The result is better spin on short shots without having to perfectly pinch the ball or play a very soft golf ball. I hit several shots with these and was amazed at how easily they produced spin. I was able to put the brakes on chip shots, and spin full shots back when they landed or have them simply stick and stop. While the wedge isn't USGA approved, it will make your short game more enjoyable. At the PGA Merchandise Sh ow I picked up a few trinkets, and I would like to share the wealth with you, my readers. The Grand Prize is a Tour E dge Exotics fairway wood of your choice. The winner will get to select the loft and shaft they wish from the company's website and have it shipped directly to them. I also have golf balls, sunglasses, caps and more to give away. To have your name put into the pot for the drawing I will hold in a few weeks, drop me an email at stammergolf@yahoo.com or send me a post card at PO Bo x 2012, Palm City, FL 34991.

3ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2013FOREVER YOUNG Since I was little, I loved to travel. Each trip, whether it was a school trip in fourth grade or a family trip to North Carolina, it has been all about visiting new places and seeing new things. Each trip, by plane, land or sea, stays near to my heart when I am thinking of a happy thought.' S ome vacations don't require a ticket; some only need a tank of gas and a little imagination. S etting a day aside and taking off in your car can be liberating. There are several places all over the Space and Treasure Coast that y ou might have never known before. This issue of Forever Young will highlight some of the best day trips for you and your family. We 'v e talked to mechanics in each market about what you need to do with your car before heading to the open road. And, just in case your sights for travel are headed a little farther than the East Coast, we've talked to travel agents on what the best tricks and tips are for traveling on a budget. One of my favorite day trips was with my family. We drove to Orlando for the day and instead of going to the usual theme parks, we went off the beaten path and on a train. We had looked in the newspaper and saw a train station had been r emodeled, so the Celebration Station train took us on a round-trip tour of Central Florida. The impromptu trip still stays highlighted in my mind. In the morning we started out in a direction, and by that night we had a memory. So take a day, grab a friend and head out and see this beautiful state that people travel from all over the world to see. Fo re v er Young is continually expanding with the help from our readers and our loyal advertisers. We want to make our publication have something for everyone.

F or a vacation, the biggest hindrance can be lack of money. B ut have no fear. R enee Thompson, of Thompson Tr avel Service, has sent plenty of happy customers on a budget friendly vacation. When you figure out where you want to go, book early and book a fare that will allow you to take advantage of a lower rate if one appears," Ms. Thompson said. "K eep in mind that if you do see a good deal, go ahead and book it. M ost of the time prices are going to go up, especially with air travel."

One of the first things that a road tripper needs to do to their car is to check the fluids. Check all of your fluids and make sure the oil is changed or has been changed," Mr. M azzoni said. "Make sure all the belts, hoses and brakes have been checked." While some may need a tuneup to their car, it isn't necessary. The quickest drain to your wallet on a trip is the stop at the gas station. Mr. Mazzoni said there are plenty of myths of saving gas during a trip, but two hold true. Do a fuel service on your car and check the air filters," Mr. Mazzoni said. "If maintenance has been done on your car, whatever miles per gallon you were going to get are what you'll get. Even setting your cruise control won't save gas. Ti r es also play a major role in the r oad trip. No one wants to be on the side of the road with a flat or blown-out tire. If y ou turn a penny upside down, in the tread and it touches the head, the tread is worn down. F or any road trip, whether it is a short or long trip, make sure the spare tire in the car is in good shape. In an emergency kit for long trips, make sure you have a jack and the supplies needed to remove a tire; jumper cables; water, for the engine overheating and yourself; a cellphone; flashlights and road flares.

"Cruise Lines are coming up with different fares codes with incentives to book early. Most of the cruise lines book their summer sailings now. The travel agent would be able to help you find the best fare for what type of travel yo u' re looking for, in particular, a good itinerary. If you're a firsttime cruiser, they can help you select the best cruise for your budget." When you talk to a travel agent, they should ask you some basic questions, including what your budget is and what type of vacation you want to have and how to save you money. There are discounts for state r esidents, seniors and military veterans," she said. "Travel agents get emails and deals all the time. If I know what my clients are looking for, I can give them a call and let them know when something comes up."

PORT ST. LUCIE From trivia to kid's night, there is good fun and good food at the St. Lucie Draft House and S ports Bar. My dining companion and I went to the restaurant at what we thought was early for dinner. The crowd of people in the dining room that continuously came and went quickly alerted us that it is a favorite place for many. The restaurant is more than just beer, as the name suggests, although they do have 25 beers on tap, and even more bottled ones. As far as food goes, it just depends on what a hungry diner is in the mood for. The menu has something for everyone, from seafood to burgers. Every month, a different selection of lunch and dinner specials is offered. Not that hungry? More than 20 different appetizers are available, including raw and steamed oysters, clams and mussels. We started off our dinner with an order of chicken wings, but couldn't decide on which one of 20 different sauces to choose from. O ur server, Philip, informed us we could mix together a variety of sauces and create our own flavor. So we had the medium garlic-Parmesan wings, and they were delicious. We ordered them without breading, and they came out hot and juicy, with a good mix of butter and sauce. I ordered one of the monthly dinner specials, the pecan-crusted chicken, with a salad and au gratin potatoes. My companion ordered the nightly special, the baby back ribs, with vegetables and a baked potato. While we enjoyed our wings, I looked around at the large booths and long tables, all big enough to fit a family or crowd of friends. Flat-screen televisions hung every few feet, and there was a different channel playing on each one. A smoking area was provided on the outside patio of the restaurant, and there was also a game room for both children and adults near the front. My salad arrived nice and cold with crisp vegetables and large croutons. The dinners arrived shortly after. The full rack of baby back ribs was slow cooked, and you could tell by how tender the meat was. The sauce on the ribs was tangy, but sweet, and left us licking our fingers. Wet naps were provided, and the ribs were savory enough to need them. The broccoli and carrots with the meal were cooked until they we re crisp but not overdone, and the baked potato was perfectly roasted, r ubbed in salt and oozing melted butter. My dinner featured two huge portions of chicken crusted with crushed pecans and drizzled with maple sauce. The chicken was juicy, and the combination of the salty nut coating and sweet maple sauce complimented each other perfectly. My potatoes were wonderful, cut in a chunky style and served in a side dish coated in butter and melted cheese. I could quickly get used to this style of au gratin potatoes. A ccording to manager Kathleen S parkman, the restaurant has been a fixture in Port St. Lucie for the past 18 y ears, having just celebrated its anniversary in November. Owner Tami McHale has made sure that no member of the family is forgotten. There is a kid's night every Thursday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., offering face painting and balloon animals On Wednesday at 8 p.m. and Friday at 9:30 p.m., trivia buffs come out to play. The restaurant is available for corpor ate parties, and is currently gearing up for an upcoming busy football weekend and the St. Patrick Day's celebration. W eekly specials include Monday night Snow Crab, Ribs on Tuesday and $5 burgers on Wednesday. The St.Lucie Draft House and Sports B ar is located at 6630 S.U.S.1 in Port St. L ucie.For more information,call (772) 460-2338.8ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2013FOREVER YOUNG Published monthly by Hometown News, L.C. 5059 Turnpike Feeder Road, Fort Pierce, FL 34951V oted No. 1 Community Newspaper in America by the Association of Free Community Papers.

9ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2013FOREVER YOUNG Staying afloat:tips for beginnersBOATING Learning to boat or sail is similar to learning to drive an automobile. Neither one happens overnight. Learning to get around on the water can be exciting, but it can also be intimidating to take over the reins of a boat for the first time. Though beginners might be apprehensive when they first start to boat or sail, there are some tips that can make it a little easier for those new to captaining their own ship. S tart small. M uch like teenagers learning to drive are often more comfortable learning behind the wheel of a compact car, boating beginners might be more comfortable learning to sail on a small boat. Smaller boats are easier to maneuver, making even the most nervous novice a little more comfortable. Choose calm waters in which to practice. A ccording to the United S tates Coast Guard, in 2010, there we re more than 4,600 recreational boating accidents that involved 672 deaths. Beginners should always practice in calm waters that don't boast big waves or lots of fellow boaters. This gives beginners the chance to learn the feel of the boat without the added pressure of handling choppy waters or traffic. R ead the weather reports. V eteran boaters struggle with inclement w eather from time to time, so beginners should expect to struggle with adverse conditions, as well. But don't be caught off guard by bad weather. Always check the weather reports before going out, and be sure to bring along appropriate attire and gear. Do n' t go it alone. B oating and sailing come with their own terminology, which beginners are typically unfamiliar with. Before heading out on the water, learn as much of this terminology as possible be it by studying manuals or books or even asking experienced friends for help. R espect other boaters. Boati ng is a hobby enjoyed by millions, and boaters should always respect that there are other people on the water, as well. Whether you're out in the middle of the ocean or relaxing at the pier on your docked boat, respect the other boaters by keeping the music down and always discarding of trash in a responsible way. F or Hometown News A group of boaters at the Sebastian Inlet State Park.Cliff Partlow staff photographer My genealogy research has suffered lately due to the holidays and life in general. I finally made an appointment to have some long-needed outpatient surgery. The day came, and of course, genealogy was the last thing on my mind. As I lay on the surgery table, I was patted and reassured by the nurses that everything would be fine. I would only be asleep for a few minutes, and when I woke up, everything would be over. Then the nurse slipped the needle into my arm, (almost painlessly). A few minutes later, I was instantly awake. There were two nurses standing above my head, just out of sight, having a conversation. It concerned the sister of one grandmother being r elated to someone else in the family, and they were wondering what relationship that made these people to each other. I was right there with them. I r emember saying "Oh, are you talking about genealogy?" I'm sure they must have been pretty surprised, and maybe annoyed, to have the patient join in on their private conversation. They answered back and agreed that, yes, they were discussing genealogy. I told them I was a genealogist and if I had my computer with me, I could give them their answer immediately. Of all times not to have my computer with me, just when I needed it! Why didn't I think to take it to the surgery room?? Genealogy Lesson No. 1: Always have your data close at hand. A few minutes later, as a nice nurse was slipping the needle out of my arm, I asked her who was asking the genealogy question. "O h that was the surgery nurses," she said, "You are now in recovery." We agreed that I must have taken another little nap after my conversation. I remember telling her that they had my information, and if they needed my help, they knew where to find me. I guess those drugs caused my ego to inflate dramatically! After leaving the facility, I began to think about this with skepticism, and suspect that it was a dream, but it seemed so real. I didn't have any names or faces to put with this incident, and I didn't want to make any bigger fool of myself by going back and asking everyone if it really happened. So how was I ever going to know if it was real or a dream? On my next visit, I asked how long I had been asleep. Then I asked if it was possible to wake up in the surgery room. "Why?" said the doctor. "Did you want to?" I explained that I thought that maybe I had, but wasn't sure if it was real or a dream. The nurse chimed in at this point. "Y es, you woke up and joined right in on the conversation!" I was both embarrassed to have intruded on someone's conversation, and elated that the mere subject of genealogy could actually bring me back to consciousness. So with this thought in mind, to my family and friends, if I ever become unconscious, slip into a coma, or suffer from dementia (which runs in my family), just start talking to me about genealogy. I will instantly regain consciousness or sanity for at least a few minutes, and you can ask what you need to know before I leave you again.Genealogy keeps your mind sharpGENEALOGY GENEALOGY B RENDA K.

Few hobbies can be as enjoyable one moment and as frustrating the next as golf. Golfers know a great putt can be quickly followed by a bad tee shot, and maintaining their composure through the highs and lows of the game is a key to success on the links. M aintaining composure isn't always easy, even for the professionals. It's even more difficult for beginners, who quickly learn golf involves more than just spending sunny weekend afternoons on pristine golf courses. In fact, golf can be quite demanding and beginners would be wise to heed a few tips before hitting the course. Don't commit to an expensive set of clubs right off the bat. Golf clubs can be very expensive, so beginners should buy an affordable secondhand set of clubs so they can get the hang of what they like before spending a lot of money. Visit a pro shop and explain that you are a beginner. The shop will likely make some valuable suggestions and might even let you try out some clubs. In addition, many driving r anges allow customers to rent clubs and this can be a great and inexpensive way to find the right clubs for you. T ake lessons. Even the very best at self-teaching might find it extremely difficult to become a self-taught golfer. When first trying your hand at golf, take some lessons and don't expect to be playing 18 holes any time soon. Before hitting the course where you might be discouraged and y ou might frustrate those golfing behind you learn the fundamentals by taking a few lessons at the driving r ange. Learn from a professional, who won't offer you any hidden secrets to golfing glory (there aren't any) but will offer sound advice on the game's fundamentals. T ake the game home with you. B eginners can even take advantage of golf's vast popularity by taking the game home with them. This doesn't mean building a putting green in your backyard. Rather, purchase some instructional DVDs to learn the game during your down time throughout the week. Many golfers don't have time to hit the links during the week, but they do have time to watch some D VDs when they get home from work. S uch instructional DVDs can help you master your grip and stance, which y ou can then take with you to the course over the weekend. Ha ve fun. Golf is a fun game; it just takes time to hone your skills. But even if you aren't ready for the professional tour after your first few rounds, y ou can still have fun. Don't let some beginner's frustration, which every golfer experiences, ruin the fun of the game. Take note of your surroundings when you hit the links, and appreciate the time you're spending with your group. If the game becomes more a source of frustration than fun, then take a break and put in some more work away from the course, be it at the driving range or studying at home.10ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2013FOREVER YOUNG GOLF D AN CAV ERLY PGA, DIRECTOR OF INSTRUCTIONGOLFTips for newcomers to golf 046472 051956 051626SUDOKU PUZZLE ANSWER

4March 2013FOREVER YOUNGVO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS WHERE DO YOUR NEI GHBORS GO?TRAVEL T ens of millions of visitors come to F lorida every year, and a good many of them come to Volusia County. That's no surprise. B ut where do East Volusia residents go when they want to travel? Well, that depends on whom you ask. "C r uises to the Caribbean, and they're going back to Europe," said D enise Goins, owner of Discovery Tr avel in South Daytona. "People are doing their bucket lists and going to Alaska and Hawaii or to Europe some big trip." "I n my office, it's Europe or cruises to the Caribbean or Panama, depending on the time of year," said Angie S haron, owner of Beachside Travel in N ew Smyrna Beach. B ut Marcya Wantuch, owner of Ro yal Coach Tours & Cruises in Port Orange, said this time of year, the travel markets are closer to home. "D uring the winter, snowbirds like to take day trips (by bus), some place within a two-hour radius, like Amelia Is land," Ms. Wantuch said. "They also enjoy mystery trips, not knowing where they're going but knowing they'll have a good time." Ro yal Coach also offers multi-day trips by bus, such as a 3-day/2-night trip to Fort Myers she led last month or the trek to Key West she leads nearly every year. They also like cruises, which are very easy because (the price) includes food and entertainment," she added. S heryl Emmett, owner of Vivo T ours, also offers trips within the state. "I want to educate (my clients) about Florida," Ms. Emmett said. "I'm trying to do things they would never think to do on their own. Fun and creative trips." F or example, a Vivo trip might take in Micanopy, near Cross Creek where M arjorie Rawlins lived and wrote "T he Yearling" and other stories, and towns to the north such as High Sp r ings and Alachua, both of which have historic downtowns. Or it might be a day in Jacksonville, which has a w ealth of things to do that most people are unaware of, she said. "(I take clients) somewhere they haven't been, where they can spend the day and maybe have a nice lunch," she said. Vi vo's day trips tend to stay in Florida, but Ms. Emmett also organizes ov ernight trips, such as her annual visit to Macon, Ga., ever year to see the cherry blossoms. She also has a multi-day trip by train coming up to Ybor City and the Tampa area "F or me, it's just a love of going places and learning something new," she said. "There are all kinds of things y ou can make into fun tours, and that's my job." S ome travel agencies offer trips to other destinations, too. What we're seeing is Europe is too expensive and risky, but cruises are always popular," said Don Franchi of A tlas Travel in Port Orange. "(And) we 'r e seeing a lot of tours to Alaska and Hawaii; they are popular right now." B ut Franchi said the popularity of Alaska and Hawaii as destinations can be "almost a cyclical thing, with H awaii being popular one year and not so much the next year. Maybe (those trips are popular) because it's safer than travel to Europe, too." Ms. Goins is active in the local Polish-American Club, so she gets a lot of folks who want to travel to Eastern Eu r ope to see where their families came from. "N ot just Poland, but other countries, too, (such as) Lithuania," she said. O ur travel experts agree that during the winter, most East Volusia residents stay home unless they're taking a cruise. They stay here and wait for the families to come visit them," Ms. Goins said, citing Bike Week as just one of the attractions for out-oftowners. While winter and summer are the busy seasons for cruises, she said travelers can get better prices in May and the September-to-November periods both for cruises and for trips to Europe. Ms. Sharon of Beachside Travel said local residents don't want to head north in the winter. "I t' s too cold," she said. "In the winter, I get snowbirds who want to travel. Fall and spring are kind of deadish, but you can get a lot of discounts then." F or Royal Coach Tours, the busy season is "usually September to Ap r il," Ms. Wantuch said. "B ut we still have day trips occasionally," she said. "Right now we have six lined up for May, and one each in June, July and August." The locals who go on cruises generally drive to the port where they will board the ship; typically, for East Vo lusia residents, that means an easy drive to Port Canaveral. But as Ms. Goins pointed out, cruise ships also use ports in Jacksonville, West Palm B each, Fort Lauderdale/Miami and T ampa. S ome frequent travelers do make trips involving flights to out-of-state destination. Goins said most of them would use Orlando International Airport because the fares are lower and there are more airlines linking it with many more destinations. But some people would rather use Daytona B each International Airport when they can. D iane Rogers and her husband, Gene, fall into that category. The New S myrna Beach couple travel a lot and use Discovery Travel's services, she By Joe CrewsF or Forever Young Photo by Joe CrewsVe rn and Doris Hargan of New Smyrna Beach board the bus for a Royal Coach Tours & Cruises trip to Fort Myers.

5FOREVER YOUNGVO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2013 When traveling,especially ov erseas,follow these "tried and true"tips from Denise Goins at D iscovery Travel: Travelwith your passport as we ll as your birth certificate and driver's license.If you lose one, the other documents will help you prove your identity! Always takeXerox copies of y our passport and driver's license, and leave a copy at home. Take notes of your credit card numbersand the important telephone numbers for customer service for those credit cards.If they are lost or stolen, you will know whom to call. Call your credit card companies and advise them what countries you will visit, on which dates and with what ship or tour company. A BIGGY: if a husband and wife are traveling together, pack half of each other's clothes in the other's suitcase.The chance of two suitcases getting lost is half as likely. Use the new squeeze-by-hand v acuum-packing bags. They are great because they compress your clothes to 1/4 the thickness, and the apparel get less wrinkled because it doesn't slosh around in your suitcase. Always travel with a smallroll of packing tape; it can repair your suitcase, shoes, handbags, glasses, and other items. F or details on these and other topics,go to www.tsa.gov.TIPS FOR TR AVEL ERS said. "I prefer Daytona Beach if I can," D iane Rogers said. "I like to fly D elta, which goes through Atlanta, but I like the Atlanta airport." The cost of flying out of Daytona B each isn't much more than that of flying out of Orlando, Ms. Rogers said. And the local airport is much more convenient, as the couple discovered when they arrived home from an early February trip to P hoenix, Ariz. "O ur flight from Atlanta was an hour late, but it was no problem at Da ytona coming in at 11 p.m.," she said. "It would have been a problem coming back to Orlando that late." Bu t sometimes, the Rogerses have to settle for using OIA, like on a trip to California they took with another couple later in the month. The foursome was able to cut down on the number of layovers by flying out of Orlando, she said. Donna Lampe of Daytona Beach is another customer who takes Discovery Travel cruises a couple of times a year. But Lampe, a widow, also usually makes two trips a year to see her adult children one in Oregon and the other in California. "I f all I do is fly and have a car r ental, I do it myself online," Ms. Lampe said. "I use (Ms. Goins) for cruises. I wouldn't do that on my o wn. As a travel agent, she knows the ins and outs." And she appreciates some of the other advantages a good travel agent can provide. In her case, Ms. Goins helps find traveling partners for her so they can get doubleoccupancy rates instead of paying higher single-occupancy rates. "I 'm very, very comfortable using her," Ms. Lampe said.Tr avelF rom page 4 045264Royal Coach T ours & Cruises,Inc.

6March 2013FOREVER YOUNGVO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS Wo rk is becoming a memory. Good food, beautiful scenery and a great time are ahead. In Georgia Interstate 95 is under construction as usual, but the traffic's flowing pretty well. Then a noise, something doesn't feel right, doesn't smell right. Steam is billowing from under the hood. B etter pull over. Just like that you can find yourself having a Chevy Chase v acation, at the mercy of a roadside r epair shop mechanic in another state who will stare at you without an ounce of compassion as he swipes y our credit card adding an extra thousand or two to your balance. Chilling isn't it? That's the price of procrastination. J ohn Abramovic has owned Ormond Fine Autos in Ormond B each since he retired 10 years ago. The former insurance agent doesn't take chances, and he doesn't want his customers to, either. He's seen it before. The factory designates 80,000 miles as the time to change the timing belt. The car owner lets it slide to 110,000 and ends up having to buy a new engine. Unlike the insensitive r oadside guy in Georgia, Mr. Ab r amovic cannot bear to see people in this situation. So with every oil change, Ormond F ine Autos completes a 28 point check including hoses, belts, fluids, brakes, coolants, wiper blades, hydraulic system, tires, struts, shocks, muffler/exhaust pipes, battery cables, filters, air conditioning, leaks, fuel injectors and more. "A basic oil change is always the first thing you should do," Mr. Ab r amovic said. "Get belts, fluids and hoses checked. Those are very inexpensive things that could be a nightmare on the road." O ther things Mr. Abramovic said people tend to neglect are lights and tires. There could be a license plate light or brake light out," he said. "It's just the price of a light bulb when who knows what the price of a ticket in some other state would be?" C orrect tire pressure saves money in fuel and wear and tear on tires, he added. Another really important thing is the spare tire," Mr. Abramovic said. "S ome people with new cars don't even know where their spare is. Or the spare sits so long that it's gone flat and the car owner doesn't realize it until it's needed." Pr evention is best, but Mr. Ab r amovic advises customers to call their hometown technician if they find themselves in the hands of a mechanic elsewhere who's telling them they need costly repairs. "P ut that technician on the phone with your regular technician, the one y ou trust, and have him explain the problem, the price and other details. There are a lot of unscrupulous people out there," Mr. Abramovic said. Ormond Fine Autos, which services both foreign and domestic cars, is at 82 N. Yonge St., Ormond Beach.

7FOREVER YOUNGMarch 2013 VO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS Within 100 miles of any home in Volusia County, there is a wealth of unexpected and fun places to visit. S ome like the Orlando theme parks and Daytona International Speedway are obvious, but there are many smaller and less well-known spots that also can be entertaining. Taking the time to investigate some of these out-of-the-way spots can be rewarding. One of my favorites is Spring Garden Ranch near DeLeon Springs in We st Volusia. The ranch is a large training facility for trotter horses and jockeys. The restaurant that overlooks the big clay track serves a nice breakfast and lunch, and while you dine, y ou can watch the trainers put the horses through their paces through the big windows. The whole scene is pastoral and soothing to the senses and jangled nerves of urban dwellers. S ome may recall the ranch was featured in an iconic TV commercial back in the 1980s. The ad told of the special place deep in the central F lorida forests and warned if you visit, don't bring your Master Card. V isa was then the only card they accepted. That has changed, but the beauty of Spring Garden Ranch hasn' t. Call (386) 985-5654 for details. Also in DeLeon Springs, you will find a rustic pancake house in D eLeon Springs State park. You can have breakfast in a most unique way. The restaurant provides the materials for you to cook your pancakes on the griddle at the center of each table. Good fun for the whole family. If your grandkids are mostly bored spending time with you, this one is guaranteed to be a hit with them. The beautiful spring boil is a year-round swimming hole and there is boating available. To get in on the fun, call (386) 985-4212. Another spring to visit is Ocala's famous Silver Springs. While the park and glass bottom boat rides can be great fun, you might want to try boating it on your own. Just west of the big O cklawaha River Bridge on State Ro ad 40, you will find public boat r amps where you may launch your outboard, canoe or kayak to traverse the gorgeous Silver River. From the launch up to the spring boil is a long, no wake ride of about four miles. Along the way you may encounter F lorida whitetail deer, wild hogs and turkeys, otters, scores of turtles and many alligators. The most famous r esidents there are the troops of wild r hesus monkeys that inhabit the shore. Word has it that years ago a few monkeys were either left behind or r eleased by a movie company and through the years they have done quite well. Now there are several large families that come to the waters edge to beg for food. The river itself is enough for you to make the trip. In most places it is over 30 feet deep and so clear you can spot a dime on the bottom. When my own children were yo ung, we watched a seven-foot alligator trying to chase down a river otter in the deep, clear water. That was an exciting sight to be sure.

8March 2013FOREVER YOUNGVO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS Over on the east coast, don't forget about the original Marineland, the oldest water park in the U.S. There you can swim with the dolphins and see a great show and it lies just 15 miles north of Flagler B each. Back in the day, the place was the site of many movies with the most famous being "The Creature From The Black Lagoon." While the attraction is great, you won't want to miss the beach. As y ou may or may not know, there is no natural stone in Central or S outh Florida but there the beach is laden with boulders. The big "r ocks" are actually fossilized seashells, coral, sand and clay in the form of coquina, the only solid building material found locally. For show times, call (877) 933-3402. Those are some of my favorite places in Florida and they are all within a few hours drive. Enjoy. LandlinesF rom page 7 Staying afloat:tips for beginnersBOATING Learning to boat or sail is similar to learning to drive an automobile. Neither one happens overnight. Learning to get around on the water can be exciting, but it can also be intimidating to take over the reins of a boat for the first time. Though beginners might be apprehensive when they first start to boat or sail, there are some tips that can make it a little easier for those new to captaining their own ship. S tart small. M uch like teenagers learning to drive are often more comfortable learning behind the wheel of a compact car, boating beginners might be more comfortable learning to sail on a small boat. Smaller boats are easier to maneuver, making even the most nervous novice a little more comfortable. Choose calm waters in which to practice. A ccording to the United S tates Coast Guard, in 2010, there we re more than 4,600 recreational boating accidents that involved 672 deaths. Beginners should always practice in calm waters that don't boast big waves or lots of fellow boaters. This gives beginners the chance to learn the feel of the boat without the added pressure of handling choppy waters or traffic. R ead the weather reports. V eteran boaters struggle with inclement w eather from time to time, so beginners should expect to struggle with adverse conditions, as well. But don't be caught off guard by bad weather. Always check the weather reports before going out, and be sure to bring along appropriate attire and gear. Do n' t go it alone. B oating and sailing come with their own terminology, which beginners are typically unfamiliar with. Before heading out on the water, learn as much of this terminology as possible be it by studying manuals or books or even asking experienced friends for help. R espect other boaters. Boat ing is a hobby enjoyed by millions, and boaters should always respect that there are other people on the water, as well. Whether you're out in the middle of the ocean or relaxing at the pier on your docked boat, respect the other boaters by keeping the music down and always discarding of trash in a responsible way.

9FOREVER YOUNGVO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2013 My genealogy research has suffered lately due to the holidays and life in general. I finally made an appointment to have some long-needed outpatient surgery. The day came, and of course, genealogy was the last thing on my mind. As I lay on the surgery table, I was patted and reassured by the nurses that everything would be fine. I would only be asleep for a few minutes, and when I woke up, everything would be ov er. Then the nurse slipped the needle into my arm, (almost painlessly). A few minutes later, I was instantly awake. There were two nurses standing above my head, just out of sight, having a conversation. It concerned the sister of one grandmother being r elated to someone else in the family, and they were wondering what r elationship that made these people to each other. I was right there with them. I remember saying "Oh, are you talking about genealogy?" I'm sure they must have been pretty surprised, and maybe annoyed, to have the patient join in on their private conversation. They answered back and agreed that, yes, they were discussing genealogy. I told them I was a genealogist and if I had my computer with me, I could give them their answer immediately. Of all times not to have my computer with me, just when I needed it! Why didn't I think to take it to the surgery room?? Genealogy Lesson No. 1: Always have y our data close at hand. A few minutes later, as a nice nurse was slipping the needle out of my arm, I asked her who was asking the genealogy question. "O h that was the surgery nurses," she said, "You are now in recovery." We agreed that I must have taken another little nap after my conversation. I remember telling her that they had my information, and if they needed my help, they knew where to find me. I guess those drugs caused my ego to inflate dramatically! After leaving the facility, I began to think about this with skepticism, and suspect that it was a dream, but it seemed so real. I didn't have any names or faces to put with this incident, and I didn't want to make any bigger fool of myself by going back and asking everyone if it really happened. So how was I ever going to know if it was real or a dream? On my next visit, I asked how long I had been asleep. Then I asked if it was possible to wake up in the surgery r oom. "Why?" said the doctor. "Did you want to?" I explained that I thought that maybe I had, but wasn't sure if it was real or a dream. The nurse chimed in at this point. "Y es, you woke up and joined right in on the conversation!" I was both embarrassed to have intruded on someone's conversation, and elated that the mere subject of genealogy could actually bring me back to consciousness. So with this thought in mind, to my family and friends, if I ever become unconscious, slip into a coma, or suffer from dementia (which runs in my family), just start talking to me about genealogy. I will instantly regain consciousness or sanity for at least a few minutes, and you can ask what you need to know before I leave you again.Genealogy keeps your mind sharpGENEALOGY GENEALOGY B RENDA K.

10March 2013FOREVER YOUNGVO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS Let's talk divots.So many of my students think that if they take a divot, it means that they've hit a good golf shot. That's not necessarily true, it depends on where that divot is in relation to the ball. There are two critical things that you must do to take a correct divot', one that is in front of the ball, and these two movements can be rehearsed, practiced, and learned. A proper weight shift is critical. A good divot starts either at the ball or even a little on the target side of the ball. In fact, LPGA and PGA Tour players start their divots anywhere from 2 to 4 inches in front of the ball. They seldom hit the ball fat' where the club strikes the ground before it strikes the ball. This is how they do it: As they near the top of the backswing, their left hip starts to move toward the target. This slight lateral movement shifts their weight early in the swing from the right foot to the left foot so that at impact, their left foot has 75 percent of their weight on that foot. This w eight shift keeps the grip end of the club ahead of the club head resulting in a solid ball-first contact. A sitting' of the knees and hips My first instructor, Jack Mackie Jr., told me y ears ago how all great players sit' through the impact area. Their knees flex more through impact then their original knee flex in the setup position. So as their weight shifts to the left foot before impact, their knees and hips are lowering slightly, so that not only is the ball struck before the club hits the ground, but the club is lowered thus taking the divot on the target side of the ball. W ant to try it for yourself? Here's how to rehearse, practice, and learn in two steps. 1. S tep 1 Get into your address position to an imaginary ball with a lawn chair 2 inches from your left hip. S wing to the top of the backswing and feel that 70 to 85 percent of your weight has naturally shifted to your right foot. Then slowly move your left hip laterally into the chair as the hips naturally turn. Get to the impact position and feel that most of your weight is on the outside of your left foot and your right heel is slightly off the ground. If you do this in front of a mirror, it should look like Photo No. 1. Do this enough times so that it feels natural before trying it with range balls. 2. S tep 2 Either with a bag stand on the range or with a carton of milk in y our snowed in living room, get your trusty 7 iron right up against the object. Now, move your left hip toward y our target and feel the weight move more to your left foot as your knees flex more than they were at setup; your left wrist remaining flat', and your right heel coming off the ground. This is what all good teachers teach in the golf swing, a correct impact position. By r ehearsing these two critical moves your ball striking will drastically improve through more solid contact of club to ball. Oh, and your friends will be impressed with your divots!

ORMOND BEACH The Beach Bu cket thinks of itself as "the locals' secret little piece of paradise." So do its customers, who won't be happy that we're divulging one of the beachside's best kept secrets. B ut Managing Partner Edee D alke is ready for the secret to come out. Everyone should be able to enjoy the restaurant, its attentive service, its wonderful food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and its scenic oceanfront location. It's all just too good not to share. Y ou can "kick back, relax and enjoy watching or listening to the ocean's waves and watch surfers while eating breakfast, lunch or dinner" states its website, and there's no argument there. Ms. Dalke said the spectacular swells at the Harvard Beach approach attract surfers and spectators who enjoy watching them. Sh e' s starting a T-shirt line, Surf Ha rv ard, and has added fire pits for ambiance. C ustomers share the fire pits, she said, and soon they are having interesting discussions with people they just met.

Ms. Dalke, who spent a year crewing on sailboats before being hired at the Beach Bucket a year ago by owner Scott Studner, has r un in four marathons and 10 half marathons. She also spent 26 years in advertising sales. While on the sailboat, she wrote a blog, "Changing Courses," and is writing a book about her travels. "I had an amazing adventure," she said. After graduating from Kansas S tate University in journalism, Ms. D alke said she had two requirements, live near an ocean and work in the media. "O ne of my favorite things about working here is the awesome staff," said the former Kansas truck stop waitress. Sh e' s got new promotions, such as BFF Night from 5:30 to 8:30 W ednesdays, which she bills as "a time to hang with your girlfriends," not a ladies night. There are $3 martini specials and $10 bottles of wine, as it is "whine wine Wednesdays," she said. U pcoming is a Gnarley Charley surf contest in June, and a bike parade in October, yep with decor ated bicycles. Last year, she said, 50 bikes and riders in costumes participated. As a runner, Ms. Dalke is aware of good nutrition. The Beach Bucket's chef, Peter Vr ochopoulos, has a special menu for the Ormond Beach Mayor's H ealth and Fitness Challenge that's underway through April 6. The dishes were created by the cooks in a contest. On April 7, the second annual B each Bucket Kiwanis' Fun Run starts at noon at the restaurant. The special dishes include shrimp and grits, made with lowfat milk, drizzled with Cheddar cheese sauce and topped with plump shrimp. I can attest to its great flavors, even with only 190 calories. Ms. Dalke said their customers like the laid-back atmosphere and good food.

13FOREVER YOUNGVO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2013 Tr aveling with HerbsHERB C ORNER As an herbalist I never travel without my herbal first-aid kit, which is fortunate because it has come in handy on many occasions. My kit is a makeup case but it can be a plastic box, tackle box, sewing box, or an old purse. The herbs I carry have addressed many issues such as colds, blisters, nausea, diarrhea, sunburn, sea-sickness and muscle aches. The more I travel the more issues I come up with. The most important thing to remember is to clearly label all that you are carrying with the herb name, uses and dosage. You'd be surprised what y ou forget in an emergency. My kit contains the following herbs along with band-aids, gauze, scissors, tape and tweezers. With these you too can be prepared for many conditions encountered on y our travels. E chinacea extract helps both internal and external infections including wounds a cold or the flu. I've used it on venomous bug bites and as a gargle for a sore throat. H omeopathic Arnica and Arnica salve help reduce inflammation and pain. When used immediately they can help prevent bruising. I carry a small amount of homeopathic Arnica with me in my purse; it helped when I was in a car accident to prevent bruising. It works by influencing levels of NF kappa-B a central mediator of inflammation. Dried Ginger comes in handy for sea sickness, motion sickness and nausea when made into a tea. In a tea as a nasal wash I have used it to relieve sinus congestion and when added to a bath it helped a severe cold and body aches. Powdered Yarrow applied topically on wounds disinfects and stops the bleeding. This is probably why soldiers carried Yarrow with them since medieval times. Burn Salve made with Calendula, Plantain, Comfrey and St. Johns Wort. This blend helps sunburns, cuts, bruises, splinters, blisters, dry skin, chapped lips and nose bleeds. Elderberry extract for cough and respiratory infections, it contains compounds that prevent flu viruses from invading and infecting cells. I also carry the essential oils of P eppermint, Tea Tree and Lavender. P eppermint is used to relieve sore muscles and headaches. It works by depleting substance P (a neurotransmitter that registers pain). I dilute P eppermint with jojoba oil because it can be irritating to skin. I have also used it on long road trips to keep me alert. Tea Tree works as an antiseptic for the mouth, cuts and bug bites plus it keeps bugs form biting you. 23 drops of Lavender can be put directly on a burn to relieve pain or to r elive the itch of a bug bite. 20 drops added to 2oz. cool water can be dabbed or sprayed on to sunburn. It can be applied to your temples to r elieve headaches and for insomnia. I have had plenty of opportunities to use my first aid kit, having it with me gives me peace of mind while I'm on the road.

PORT ST. LUCIE For the second time in less than a year, there is a new interim city manager. At the Fe b. 11 meeting, the Port St. Lucie City Council unanimously approved for the assistant city manager, Jeff Bremer, to step into the position recently vacated by Greg Oravec. I just want to truly thank you, said Michelle Berger, city councilwoman, to Mr. Bremer. I thank you for the professional transition yo u re making with the department heads. Mr. Oravecs last day was Feb. 8, when he reached an amicable separation agreement between himself and the city. Earlier in the year, Mr. Oravec had r eleased emails indicating he was experiencing working difficulties with some members of the city council. Mr. Bremer was hired by Mr. Oravec in December. Originally from Michigan, Mr. Br emer brings 34 y ears of public administration exper ience to the position. He holds a masters degree in public administration and a bachelors degree in political science. H is dedication to public service is a family event. His grandfather served as a mayor in M uskegon, Mich., and his sons have also served in city government. I have no interest in being the city manager, and I will not be applying for the position, he 050586 051636Kellie PicklerSat, Feb 23rd @ 7:30pmThe Guess WhoFri, Feb 22nd @ 7:30pm www.stluciecountyfair.com PORT ST.

LUCIE COUNTY On Feb. 16, students from the six middle schools in S t. Lucie County spent a S aturday at Fort Pierce W estwoods Marine O ceanographic Academy in Fort Pierce competing against each other in the school districts first science bowl competition. Last year, we had a team at the regional level, but no local competition, said Steve Shotola, title one science support specialist. This is the first time weve brought the schools together, and hopefully it is something we will be able to do every y ear. Answering questions like What are the four main human blood types? and Which best describes the relationship between a human forearm and a bats PORT ST. LUCIE The non-profit organization CASTLE helps the community by teaching the residents the skills they need to be better families. B ut sometimes, the organization that helps so many needs some help themselves. So when the city of Port St. Lucie was removing some kitchen cabinets from a home it was refurbishing for storage, building department head Joel Dramis r emembered the nonprofit, and picked up the phone to ask if the cabinets could be used. The main office has been in need of employee kitchen cabinets for several years, said Rossana Gonzalez, an employee of the nonprofit. M r. Dr amis could have thrown them out, but he remembered our need and offered them to us. The next obstacle the nonprofit faced was getting the cabinets to the main office, but once again employees of the city stepped in to help. W e didnt have a car big enough to transport the cabinets, Ms. Gonzalez said. Again, the city stepped forward in the form of four employees who used their own vehicles to bring the donation to the main office. J ohn Wolf, Vince Dellacroce, Marc B all and Chuck Tyrrell made short work of the delivery and the organization now has kitchen cabinets.Thanks to everyone at the city for thinking of CASTLE, Ms. Gonzalez said. CASTLE offers parenting education for the four-county area of St. L ucie, Indian River, Martin and O keechobee counties.

I nterim City Manager Jeff Br emer was asked by Mayor J oAnn Faiella to share his thoughts. I am willing to research and present you with some information relative to a professional headhunter for the search for a city manager, he said. I will look to several different locations, including the Florida League of Cities, which may be able to provide that level of service for us. He indicated the service is inclusive and will have the professionalism the council is looking for. I m in favor of that, said C ouncilwoman Shannon Mar tin. Were looking for a more statewide or national search. C ouncilwoman Michelle Berger, however, wanted to make sure that a national search didnt preclude the council from looking at local Sevin Bullwinkle/staff photographerF rom left, Jaqueline and Alejo Perera of Port St. Lucie, Laura and David Plunkett, Scott and Katherine Lindenberg of Fort Pierce, George and Carol Krouse of Port St. Lucie, and Steven and Brenda Hurst of Okeechobee are married at the Valentines Day Sweet Deal Group Wedding Ceremon.

wing?, the 12 teams from S outhport Middle School, Da n McCarty K-8, Southern O aks Middle School, Forest Grove Middle School, Allapattah Flats K-8 and Fort Pierce Magnet Schools of the Arts played three r ounds, with the top four teams advancing to an elimination round. MOA and school district staff assisted with the event. W e re very excited to host this first event, said D ebra Kohuth, assistant principal for Fort Pierce W estwood High School, MOA campus. This gives middle-school students a chance to see the campus and meet the teachers. Also helping with the competition were MOA students preparing for a competition of their own. The six students will be in Miami this weekend to representing St. Lucie County in the r egional competition of the O cean Bowl, where in the past two years the team has qualified for national competition. After the morning rounds, the teams traveled to the nearby Florida Atlantic Universitys Harbor Branch O ceanographic Center. At its education center, the top scoring teams played each other in an elimination r ound, with Forest Grove M iddle School emerging as the winners. This competition gives the school teams practice for the upcoming regional competition, which takes place on March 2 in Cocoa B each. This year, St. Lucie C ounty will be represented by six teams. INDIAN RIVER COUNTY The red, white and blue flag that represents the land of the free and the home of the brave can move some to shed proud tears and others to action. V eterans are often hailed as heroes for their service to this country, but the masses often have no clue the sacrifices and life changing events that happen during that service. Rick Wood of Fort Pierce is a combat veteran who served in operations such as D esert Shield and Desert S torm, and later served in the U.S. Army reserves, and worked as a civilian for the military, and later worked as a journalist at a military base. He is currently a film student at Indian River State C ollege and is preparing to film a 20-minute dramatic short film in Vero Beach and Fo rt Pierce based on some of his life experiences. T ideline follows the life of Nicole Young, a former military police captain turned therapist, working with a troubled veteran with thoughts of suicide, Mr. W ood said. O ur intent is to start the conversation. If we can get folks talking about these things openly, we stand a good chance of possible helping veterans out there who struggle with their own experiences, Mr. Wood said in a press release. In an email interview, Mr. W ood said after he returned to the U.S. from his tours of duty, he noticed he had classic signs of post-traumatic stress disorder: difficulty concentrating, reoccurring dreams related to combat experiences and anxiety in crowded areas. I still have to sit in the back of restaurants and face out, in the direction of the entrance, he said. C asting is currently underway and filming is expected to be in full swing by Ma y. The film will include locations in Vero Beach and Fo rt Pierce. I t s both difficult and cathartic to dive into the subject matter of the film, Mr. Wood said. Post-traumatic stress disorder, loss of comrades, survivors guilt and suicidal feelings are hard things to think about even if you have no connection. But heres the thing: the majority of deaths in the military each year dont come from the battles in the wars we are fighting. Suicide is the number one killer in the military. Thats a huge thing when you look at it. Mr. Wood was 19 when he r eturned from combat in 1991. I t took a long time to digest some of what Id seen and things I had done. Im still working on it, he said. Mr. Wood and his filming partner, Micah Bolen of Por t. St. Lucie, want the film to bring veterans issues to the forefront while at the same time convey a message of hope. The film will portray potential real-life situations and reactions. In addition to addressing post traumatic stress disorder, the film will also address the issue of women in combat and sexual assault overseas, Mr. Wood said. W omen are more likely to be sexually assaulted in a combat zone than to be injured or die from enemy action, he said. Behind the camera, I get a chance to tell this story, share these ugly and difficult things. In a way, I get to let go of some of that baggage by doing so. W e want veterans to know that these arent their invisible burdens to bear.

Modern-day depressionIve heard my parents talk about the Great Depression. As a child, I never understood why it was called great. It never seemed that great. Ive heard the stories about food rations. I heard about how it brought communities together. And now I hear that as a country, we are going to pot. Dur ing my childhood, those stories seemed so distant and nothing more than the way things used to be. But now, as I struggle to make ends meet for my own family, Im r eminded of the times in which many of our grandparents we re r aised. As we sink into this modern-day depression, I sure wish I wouldve taken more notice on how my grandparents made ends meet. There seems to be no light at the end of this tunnel. We are faced with decisions such as a gallon of milk or a gallon of gas; cell phone or cable; electricity or rent. Employers are struggling to make payroll. And those still fortunate enough to call themselves employees are struggling to live from one paycheck to another. B ecause we are all aware that the job market is bleak, we dare not complain about wages that are gone as soon as earned. We know that there is somebody more than willing to take the job we are fortunate enough to have. So how does one get ahead? How can we start to feel at ease? When does the comfort in knowing that having a job means having a roof over your familys head return? I suppose, we, nor anyone else, knows the answer to that question. But we cant, as a community, start turning on each other. We cant start robbing and stealing from someone who is struggling, as well. We have to start doing for each other. A pinch of kindness and a smile can go a long way. Drivers be carefulP lease, drivers, do not take your eyes off the road while y ou drive. W ith everyone in such a hurry or full of stress lately, it only takes a split second for you to accidentally run a light or sign, or someone else not seeing you coming because they reached over to tune the radio or something, and your whole day and possibly your world can change in a moment with an accident. This happened to me recently and although I was not hurt, my car is now in the shop getting fixed, and all it took was a quick, momentary distraction. Then, I had a big dent in the door. There are so many ways we can lose our focus with driving: texting, phone conversations, tuning radios, reaching on the floor for something, putting makeup on or even eating. Be careful out there, everyone, and keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel for your own protection. I could have been paralyzed for life.Seatbelt rightsThis is about the seatbelt law. We should all make our o wn choices. If you get hurt while you dont wear it, oh w ell. We are all adults. But there is a dummy on a motorcycle without a helmet flying down the road, and nobody does anything about that. Why dont they change that law?On food stampsI see people in stores with nice clothes and fancy cars, y et are buying steaks and lobsters with food stamps. My husband and I are living on $17,000 a year Social Security. I have bills I cant pay. Im afraid that my lights or water are going to be turned off. We were turned down for food stamps. People who have fought for this country cant get them, but those who havent been here long can.W atering the road?I drive to work every morning on A1A and there are sprinklers that shoot right into the road. Why are we watering the pavement?Health care dilemmaOne of the leading advocates of a government takeover of the nation's health care admits that, "We are the world leaders in medical innovation, research, education and advanced technology" and that we provide the best medical care in the world. How ever, she then proceeds to argue that we still must assume massive debt in attempt to change it for the better. If we are already the world leader, this sounds like throwing out the baby with the bath water.What about the victims?At a time when this nation is experiencing a wave of crime, often committed by illegal immigrants, a far left group called the Sentencing Project has come out with a r ecommendation to abolish life without parole. These dogooders who have so much sympathy for criminals seem to have little concern for those of us who are law-abiding citizens and who are so often the victims of crime.Revise systemI have a son whos incarcerated in Miami. He was sentenced to 27 years. He had no weapons or drugs. It was a r acketeering charge. He has filed motions to have his sentence reduced, but theyve done nothing. He doesnt deserve this sentence. But theyve done nothing. Im very disturbed by the system.No kids at the barWhat happened to the state laws on alcohol? Arent they supposed to be watching what goes on at places that serve alcohol? I was at a restaurant and there was a child at the bar. They serve food to children while others drink. Where are the MADD mothers?D CF needs to get it togetherI have reported abuse to the Department of Families and Children and they are doing nothing about it. They need to do their job and take care of the children. They dont understand the psychological abuse that a child goes through when they are in an abusive home. Nobody seems to care about these innocent children who have to fend for themselves. I hope somebody from the department sees this rant and does something about it. Got something to say?

C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Have you ever wanted to contribute some of y our own "expert knowledge" to some encyclopedia entry to bring the article up to the level you think would be most helpful to other people? Well, thanks to Wikipedia, now you can. W ikipedia ( www.wikipedia.org) is an online encyclopedia boasting more than four million articles, all editable by its r eaders. For a size comparison, the Encyclopedia Br itannica has approximately 85,000 entries and Encarta has approximately 63,000 entries. And none of them are changeable. W ikipedia is a combination of the word "wiki" (which is an editable form of w ebsite) and the last part of the word encyclopedia. In essence it's an editable encyclopedia. The project has grown since its inception in 2001, with more articles posted every day. The beauty of it is the ability to contribute to any article by any reader, so the content of the project grows by leaps and bounds. When I first stumbled upon the site, I didn't give it much thought; it was interesting and had some good information on what I was looking for but the power of what I was looking at didn't appear to me at the time. Then, over time, I started to realize that more and more of the searches I would do on Google (or other search engines) were returning r esults from Wikipedia. Overall, I found the information returned to be r elevant, until one day I found an article that I thought needed a little clarification. After looking at the page for a bit, I found the edit button and read the frequently asked questions (FAQ) on editing a page. W ithin minutes I was adding my thoughts to that particular entry. Now the article contained the information that it was lacking. For the first time, I had actually contributed to an encyclopedia entry! OK, I know what you are thinking, "How could an encyclopedia that is edited and modified by any reader possibly be accurate?" W ell, there are some basic r ules that appear to be broken here; so what's stopping pranksters or just plain ignorant people from posting information on this site that is completely bogus? J ust because you read something on the Internet doesn't necessarily make it true. That's always important to keep in mind when surfing the Web. W ell, if you browse the site's FAQs, you will find that they have indeed addressed much of the criticism people have posed regarding the site's validity, and it seems that the checks and balances they have in place to prevent such inaccurate entries again r elies on the users themselves. Each edit or new entry gets immediately posted to the "recent changes" page where thousands of W ikipedia devotees proofr ead and verify all new entries. So, if someone posts a bogus entry, it's corrected ra pidly, usually the same day. How does one go about using Wikipedia? Type www.wikipedia.org into your W eb browser and then clicking the English link (or whatever language you are most comfortable with). This will bring you to the main page, which changes daily, where you will find some trivia, some random subjects and some news articles from var ious sources. On the left-and side of the page, you will see a series of links, and at the top left of the page there is a search dialogue box. Type in whatever you are looking for, click search and that instantly brings you to the most r elevant match. If the results are not what y ou are looking for, look for a link labeled "other uses." This will bring you to a page that lists all the matched r esults, rather than the one match that it thinks is most r elevant. After reading up on whatever you are looking for, if you feel you have something to contribute, click the "edit this page" link and have at it. If you have trouble figuring out how to edit the page, click the "editing help" link and learn how.

Here it is: H i Earl, good article. As a car sales professional, I have heard this saying and whilst I always approach every prospect with the right attitude, I have lost count of the number of lies I have been told. Things like: C ustomers telling you another dealer will give them an extra $4000 for their trade in when you know the dealer deals with the same wholesaler. Or the customer tells me that another dealer will throw in a polished alloy bulbar. Two problems: that product was not available for that vehicle yet, but they still insisted, and the store it was going to come from didnt even make tow bars for that model. Lo and behold, the other dealer hadnt even met this guy. Or when the customer comes to me, and we build a great rapport, then goes shopping elsewhere and buys elsewhere. Then they phone me to ask if I will match a deal that is so far below cost it couldnt be anything other than a figment of their imagination. After calling the dealer, I find out it is just that, and the real buyer was not the person who came to me. This other clown comes and parades the car and restates what deal they got, yet can't produce the invoice. That said, I love the car business and these people are part and parcel of it. I quickly work them out and eliminate them now. This comment is just another example of why car salesmen develop a negative attitude toward their customers. Its reminiscent of what soldiers do when they go to war, they demonize the enemy to justify in their minds to do their job to wound, kill or capture them. During WWII, the J apanese were the Yellow Pe ri l and we called them J aps. The Japanese referred to us as Yankee Devils. Just like soldiers, car salesmen are often only following orders and they demonize their customers when theyre ordered to do things that their conscience wouldnt permit them to do to a good person. I dont claim to be a psychologist, but I have r ead articles explaining how humans will stereotype other people in a fashion that falsely justifies their negative behavior toward those same people. We also see this with racism. If you make yourself believe that car buyers are out to take advantage of you, buyers are liars, you cant feel guilty about tricking them into paying a dealer fee. If y ou trick a roach or a slug into coming in to buy a car on credit when they probably cant, why should y ou feel guilty? After all, r oaches and slugs dont have feelings. Im always amazed by the way car dealers who use deceptive advertising and unethical sales tactics r ationalize their behavior by actually blaming you, their customer. The following is a direct quote from an anonymous car dealers email I received this morning in response to one of my r ecent columns in this newspaper: I don't think you would make any of these comments if you sold Fords in a non-metro market. How do y ou expect dealers to change when consumers think they should pay less than dealer cost for a car and then walk into any other form of retail store and pay what they are asking? Your ideas are noble, but there are other dealers who have tried 'your' methods who are no longer in business. This dealer is saying that his customers are so r uthless and cunning that they wont buy a car unless they can buy it below his cost and his only solution is to trick them into thinking that they are buying it below his cost, like tacking on a dealer fee to the price they quoted the customer. He also goes on to say that my ideas are noble, but I cant possibly be successful and I will go broke trying. I truly appreciate his concern and I want to assure him, if he is reading this article that my business is doing very nicely. This attitude is actually a prevailing part of the culture in many car dealerships. Many dealers, dealer managers and sales people dont trust their customers. How paradoxical! They dont even like their customers. A very common expression among car dealers and their sales staff is Buyers are liars. This means that a prospective customer will not tell you the truth about the condition of his trade-in, he will lie to you about the price he got from your competitor, and he is likely to remove those new tires that were on his trade-in when the dealer appraised it when he comes in to pick up his new car. There are also a lot of dealerships where used car buyers and people with bad credit are held in especially low esteem. They have nicknames for people with bad credit like slugs and r oaches. A pparently dehumanizing these unfortunate members of our society with derogatory labels makes it easier to treat them so shabbily. People with bad credit are targeted with direct mail and newspaper ads making absurd promises that convince prospective customers that they can finance a car no matter how bad their credit. In some dealerships, applicants are coached on how to falsify credit application and pay records. In some cases, the applicant may not even know he is signing a false credit application, which is a federal offence. In most cases, the credit is refused and the applicants are not even given the courtesy of a r eturn phone call to tell them this. What these kinds of dealerships dont understand is that you must trust a person first before you can expect her to trust you. Y ou have to treat a person with respect before you can expect that person to r espect you. Somebody has got to go first. My experience over the past 40+ years as a car dealer is that 99.9 percent of my customers are good people who I can believe and trust. Those are pretty good odds, and I just assume that every customer I am dealing with is part of that 99.9 percent. Once in a great while I get burned, but the loss from that one in a thousand that takes advantage is far outweighed by the other 999, who respond positively to my trusting them and treating them with respect. Buyers dont give all the information needed ON CARSEARL STEWART

A facilitator-led, interactive kick-off workshop is to be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on March 23 at the Havert L. F enn Center, 2000 Virginia Av e. in Fort Pierce. The current port master plan has been successful with its primary infrastructure projects, Taylor Creek dredging and Second Street improvements, which have been fully funded through FDOT and are currently under way. However, the master plan includes no more projects to bring the port up-to-date to attract desired business activity. P ublic input is vital to the process of determining the Po rt of Fort Pierces future, including identification of projects. The study team is being led by AECOM Technical Ser vices, with sub-consultants including Adams Consulting Group Inc., St. Lucie C ounty-based planner and architect Ray Chladny, and facilitator James AnastonKaras.

TREASURE COAST T aking an airboat ride can be a thrilling experience, but learning about nature unfolding around you while yo u re r iding is what makes it a memory. That how Robert Montuoro, also known as Capt. Bo b, feels every time he takes a group out on one of his airboats. As owner of Capt. Bobs Airboat Adventures Tours, he makes sure the people that ride on his airboats experience the natural F lorida waiting just outside Ve ro Beach city limits in the B lue Cypress Conservation Area, known to locals as Lake Garcia. I v e always been an outdoorsman, Capt. Bob said. I make sure that people get to see everything that they can. H is airboat business focuses on making sure the customer has a good time. The large 20-foot-long boats offer stadium seating, so everyone has a clear view. In addition, he also provides headsets to the r iders, so they can ask questions and hear what he says during the tour. The headsets really magnify the experience, he said. I get lots of questions, and its easy to show people wildlife right away, as it happens. F or the first-time air boater, Capt. Bob says theres nothing to worry about. D epending on the season, we try to tell people what they can expect and what to wear to be comfortable, he said. We want them to have fun. S afety is a priority as well, and Capt. Bob provides 31 y ears of experience with the I ndian River County Fire D epartment before his r etirement last year with the rank of Lieutenant Emergency Medical Technician. The one-hour tours are done by reservation only, and private tours can be arranged. W e get a lot of people from all over the Treasure C oast, he said. Its unbelievable how popular it has grown in 10 years, and we thank our customers for that. So for a beautiful ride and a great vacation memory, call Capt.

Cats tend to be affected more readily than dogs, and kittens are the most easily infected because of their immature immune systems. Clinical signs in pets tend to be non-specific and can look like most any other form of skin disease.Scabs appear on the skin that may or may not have the red ring around them.Most cases are diagnosed when a pet has not responded to an appropriate course of antibiotics to treat the much more common staph infection. Diagnosis is made definitively with fungal cultures. Screening tests include fluorescence under a Wood's lamp and looking at hair samples microscopically.Most ringworm cases will fluoresce under a Wood's lamp;but not everything that fluoresces is ringworm.Microscopic identification can be difficult, so most veterinarians do ringworm culture tests when ringworm is suspected. T reatment is aimed at minimizing shedding of the spores into the environment while treating the patient.Some cases require shaving to facilitate topical treatment with antifungal shampoos.Oral antifungal medication:itraconazole and gr iseofulvin are the mainstays of successful treatment but it can be expensive and typically must be given for at least 6 w eeks.Infected animals should be segregated from other pets and human family members to reduce the risk of infection and to prevent shedding of infective spores throughout the environment.Lime sulfur dips can be effective, but are ve ry f oul smelling (rotten eggs), and can stain clothes and carpets.Some pets fight off the infection without treatment, b ut those cases are rare.The environment can be disinfected by using dilute bleach to disinfect animal bedding and carpets.

LUCIE Now in its fourth year, the Festiv al Italiano is shaping up to be one of the largest this area has seen. Last year, more than 3,000 people came out for the festival, said G ioacchino Jack DiGiorgio, festival president.

These colorful plants are always a sure sign of spring when they burst into full color. Even though spring is officially still several weeks away, now is the time to start planning where you want to show off these heavy bloomers. Y ou should consider a location where the plants will only receive filtered light. They do not like full direct sun all day. An area under the eaves of your house or an area that r eceives filtered sun through pine trees would be an excellent location. If you want your plants to live a long and healthy life, proper soil is the key. A zaleas like a soil that is acidic, with a ph of around 5.5. Generally, soil that is exposed to pine needles will be naturally acidic in nature and when mixed with a good organic soil, y ou have an excellent planting medium to give y our plants a good start. Y ou should also be sure y our plants are in a welldrained area so they wont sit in water for long periods. Preparing a raised bed is the best assurance for good drainage. Once the soil is properly prepared, you want to apply a slow-release fertilizer directly to the soil. Osmocote for acidloving plants is an excellent choice. Once you have your azaleas planted and established, the rest is easy. The beauty of these plants is that they require very little maintenance. They are not heavy feeders, and thus do not need to be fertilized on a regular basis. The best time for feeding is after they have finished their bloom cycle in the spring. Always use a slow-release fertilizer, and do not let the fertilizer come in direct contact with the roots. O kay, you got your plants established, fertilized and your soil is perfect, so whats next? The next step is to ensure that your plants bloom year after year. One of the best ways to insure this is by proper pruning. You always want to prune and shape your plants right after they have finished blooming. Dont wait till the dead of summer to do this, or you r isk losing flowers next season. Ev en though azaleas have a fairly short bloom cycle, the plants stay healthy and green all year long. Because of this, they are considered evergreens. This is what makes them such a desirable choice for a year-round plant. J ust to summarize, azaleas are heavy bloomers, they are easy to take care of and they do very well in both winter cold and hot summers provided they are in filtered sunlight.

PORT ST. LUCIE Fresh fruit, lush plants, puppies, woodwork and reggae are some of the vast array of surprises visitors will find at the Community Green Market. Each Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., market organizer and founder Arthur DAmato 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. DAmato. We have a great location at the Civic C enter, so we bring in a mix of people along with a mix of selected vendors. People are very happy that they dont have to drive far to find everything they want. S ince opening a few months ago, Mr. DAmato 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. In itially, 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 its 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 r elax or eat some of the hot food or drinks offered by vendors. The market is petfriendly and also offers a tent manned by the Humane S ociety of St. Lucie County. The Humane Society offers pets for adoption as well as information about the organization. Mr. DAmato 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. Wed still host the market at the same time, bringing our goods to the many people who would be visiting the show. Its a winwin.

One of the clubs that golfers tend to pay the least attention to is the wedge. We worry about our driver and how well our putter r olls the ball, but we seldom pay close attention to the clubs we use to truly save us when we miss a green. And if you're like most amateurs, y ou miss more than you hit in regulation. The right wedge will have a wonderful feel to it. It will have a sole that allows you to play it from different lies and increase or decrease loft as needed. Having a w edge in your bag that you are comfortable with is essential. M any pros change their w edges every few weeks as course conditions dictate and to keep wedges with fresh, sharp grooves in their bag. Being able to put spin on the ball is important to players who want to control the ball around the greens. T our Edge Exotics (www.touredgegolf.com ) T our Prototype Wedge combines a thin, stainlesssteel face backed with a thermal elastomer gel that provides a soft feel and feedback not available in traditional steel wedges. The sole is ground to eliminate turf interaction at the heel and toe, minimizing drag and the potential for the clubface to twist, allowing for superior shot versatility. T our Edge's Triple Grind S ole lineup is available for men and women. This w edge features a traditional pear-shaped head design, and a Tour-inspired triple grind sole eliminates bounce from the heel and toe. This allows players to open and close the club when creating shots without the fear of the club digging or grabbing the turf. The CNC-milled grooves deliver precise control. S ome of the most beautiful clubs I saw at the show came from Edel Golf (www.edelgolf.com). The company has an inline fitting system designed to put the perfect wedge for y our unique swing into your hands. To help your wedge game, E del has moved the sweet spot toward the toe and shortened the hosel to move unwanted weight from the heel to the true center of the clubface. A rounded leading edge allows the club to sit close to the ground and maintain a square look no matter whether the club is set open, closed or square. E del offers eight different sole grinds and 18 different w edge shaft options. Using the website's online fitting page you can choose from several options, even down to the way the wedge is stamped and paint-filled to create your own personal work of art. N ot all manufacturers pay pros to play their equipment. One of the Tour's most popular wedges, and one that pros are not paid to play, comes from Fourteen (www.fourteengolf.com). This Japanese company forges some of the sweetest feeling clubs in the business. The company makes three lines of wedges, the RM-12, RM-11 and the J S pec IV. The new RM-12 line comes in nine lofts, two finishes and has been named to Golf Digest's 2013 H ot List. The RM-11 features grooves that are 15 percent larger for better spin and control. The J Spec IV is made from the softest forged metal available to provide great feel and touch. W ilson Golf (www.wilson.com) has been around for many decades and is known for its iron technology, including the new FG T our TC Wedge and the next generation of wedges featuring Traction Control technology. Aggressive Tour-Y grooves are milled for consistency and to enhance spin on full swings. Between the grooves are laser-etched micro-spin enhancers that help produce greater spin on partial shots. Two sole options and nine different loft/bounce combinations offer a choice of 54 unique combinations to find the r ight wedge for your needs. F inally, we have the Polara Golf Wedge (www.polaragolf.com ) that will hit stores this spring. The wedges feature a corrugated grooved plate behind the face that will create 35 percent more backspin. The result is better spin on short shots without having to perfectly pinch the ball or play a very soft golf ball. I hit several shots with these and was amazed at how easily they produced spin. I was able to put the brakes on chip shots, and spin full shots back when they landed or have them simply stick and stop. While the wedge isn't USGA approved, it will make your short game more enjoyable. At the PGA Merchandise Sh ow I picked up a few trinkets, and I would like to share the wealth with you, my readers. The Grand Prize is a Tour E dge Exotics fairway wood of your choice. The winner will get to select the loft and shaft they wish from the company's website and have it shipped directly to them. I also have golf balls, sunglasses, caps and more to give away. To have your name put into the pot for the drawing I will hold in a few weeks, drop me an email at stammergolf@yahoo.com or send me a post card at PO Bo x 2012, Palm City, FL 34991.

3ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2013FOREVER YOUNG Since I was little, I loved to travel. Each trip, whether it was a school trip in fourth grade or a family trip to North Carolina, it has been all about visiting new places and seeing new things. Each trip, by plane, land or sea, stays near to my heart when I am thinking of a happy thought. S ome vacations dont require a ticket; some only need a tank of gas and a little imagination. S etting a day aside and taking off in your car can be liberating. There are several places all over the Space and Treasure Coast that y ou might have never known before. This issue of Forever Young will highlight some of the best day trips for you and your family. We v e talked to mechanics in each market about what you need to do with your car before heading to the open road. And, just in case your sights for travel are headed a little farther than the East Coast, weve talked to travel agents on what the best tricks and tips are for traveling on a budget. One of my favorite day trips was with my family. We drove to Orlando for the day and instead of going to the usual theme parks, we went off the beaten path and on a train. We had looked in the newspaper and saw a train station had been r emodeled, so the Celebration Station train took us on a round-trip tour of Central Florida. The impromptu trip still stays highlighted in my mind. In the morning we started out in a direction, and by that night we had a memory.

6ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2013FOREVER YOUNG Getting your car ready for the driveROAD TRIPS When setting off for a day trip or even a long voyage out to different states, the vehicle, whether it is a car, RV or motorcycle, needs to be ready to make the trip. Fr ank Mazzoni, owner of Treasure C oast Auto Repair, has seen cars of all types roll or towed into his shop. One of the first things that a road tripper needs to do to their car is to check the fluids. Check all of your fluids and make sure the oil is changed or has been changed, Mr. M azzoni said. Make sure all the belts, hoses and brakes have been checked. While some may need a tuneup to their car, it isnt necessary. The quickest drain to your wallet on a trip is the stop at the gas station. Mr. Mazzoni said there are plenty of myths of saving gas during a trip, but two hold true. Do a fuel service on your car and check the air filters, Mr. Mazzoni said. If maintenance has been done on your car, whatever miles per gallon you were going to get are what youll get. Even setting your cruise control wont save gas. Tir es also play a major role in the r oad trip. No one wants to be on the side of the road with a flat or blown-out tire. If you turn a penny upside down, in the tread and it touches the head, the tread is worn down. F or any road trip, whether it is a short or long trip, make sure the spare tire in the car is in good shape. In an emergency kit for long trips, make sure you have a jack and the supplies needed to remove a tire; jumper cables; water, for the engine overheating and yourself; a cellphone; flashlights and road flares.

PORT ST. LUCIE From trivia to kids night, there is good fun and good food at the St. Lucie Draft House and S ports Bar. My dining companion and I went to the restaurant at what we thought was early for dinner. The crowd of people in the dining room that continuously came and went quickly alerted us that it is a favorite place for many. The restaurant is more than just beer, as the name suggests, although they do have 25 beers on tap, and even more bottled ones. As far as food goes, it just depends on what a hungry diner is in the mood for. The menu has something for everyone, from seafood to burgers. Every month, a different selection of lunch and dinner specials is offered. Not that hungry? More than 20 different appetizers are available, including raw and steamed oysters, clams and mussels. We started off our dinner with an order of chicken wings, but couldnt decide on which one of 20 different sauces to choose from. O ur server, Philip, informed us we could mix together a variety of sauces and create our own flavor. So we had the medium garlic-Parmesan wings, and they were delicious. We ordered them without breading, and they came out hot and juicy, with a good mix of butter and sauce. I ordered one of the monthly dinner specials, the pecan-crusted chicken, with a salad and au gratin potatoes. My companion ordered the nightly special, the baby back ribs, with vegetables and a baked potato. While we enjoyed our wings, I looked around at the large booths and long tables, all big enough to fit a family or crowd of friends. Flat-screen televisions hung every few feet, and there was a different channel playing on each one. A smoking area was provided on the outside patio of the restaurant, and there was also a game room for both children and adults near the front. My salad arrived nice and cold with crisp vegetables and large croutons. The dinners arrived shortly after. The full rack of baby back ribs was slow cooked, and you could tell by how tender the meat was. The sauce on the ribs was tangy, but sweet, and left us licking our fingers. Wet naps were provided, and the ribs were savory enough to need them. The broccoli and carrots with the meal were cooked until they we re crisp but not overdone, and the baked potato was perfectly roasted, r ubbed in salt and oozing melted butter. My dinner featured two huge portions of chicken crusted with crushed pecans and drizzled with maple sauce. The chicken was juicy, and the combination of the salty nut coating and sweet maple sauce complimented each other perfectly. My potatoes were wonderful, cut in a chunky style and served in a side dish coated in butter and melted cheese. I could quickly get used to this style of au gratin potatoes. A ccording to manager Kathleen S parkman, the restaurant has been a fixture in Port St. Lucie for the past 18 y ears, having just celebrated its anniversary in November. Owner Tami McHale has made sure that no member of the family is forgotten. There is a kids night every Thursday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., offering face painting and balloon animals On Wednesday at 8 p.m. and Friday at 9:30 p.m., trivia buffs come out to play. The restaurant is available for corpor ate parties, and is currently gearing up for an upcoming busy football weekend and the St. Patrick Days celebration. W eekly specials include Monday night Snow Crab, Ribs on Tuesday and $5 burgers on Wednesday. The St.Lucie Draft House and Sports B ar is located at 6630 S.U.S.1 in Port St. L ucie.For more information,call (772) 460-2338.8ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2013FOREVER YOUNG Published monthly by Hometown News, L.C. 5059 Turnpike Feeder Road, Fort Pierce, FL 34951V oted No. 1 Community Newspaper in America by the Association of Free Community Papers.

9ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2013FOREVER YOUNG Staying afloat:tips for beginnersBOATING Learning to boat or sail is similar to learning to drive an automobile. Neither one happens overnight. Learning to get around on the water can be exciting, but it can also be intimidating to take over the reins of a boat for the first time. Though beginners might be apprehensive when they first start to boat or sail, there are some tips that can make it a little easier for those new to captaining their own ship. S tart small. M uch like teenagers learning to drive are often more comfortable learning behind the wheel of a compact car, boating beginners might be more comfortable learning to sail on a small boat. Smaller boats are easier to maneuver, making even the most nervous novice a little more comfortable. Choose calm waters in which to practice. A ccording to the United S tates Coast Guard, in 2010, there we re more than 4,600 recreational boating accidents that involved 672 deaths. Beginners should always practice in calm waters that dont boast big waves or lots of fellow boaters. This gives beginners the chance to learn the feel of the boat without the added pressure of handling choppy waters or traffic. R ead the weather reports. V eteran boaters struggle with inclement w eather from time to time, so beginners should expect to struggle with adverse conditions, as well. But dont be caught off guard by bad weather. Always check the weather reports before going out, and be sure to bring along appropriate attire and gear. Do n t go it alone. B oating and sailing come with their own terminology, which beginners are typically unfamiliar with. Before heading out on the water, learn as much of this terminology as possible be it by studying manuals or books or even asking experienced friends for help. R espect other boaters. Boati ng is a hobby enjoyed by millions, and boaters should always respect that there are other people on the water, as well. Whether youre out in the middle of the ocean or relaxing at the pier on your docked boat, respect the other boaters by keeping the music down and always discarding of trash in a responsible way. F or Hometown News A group of boaters at the Sebastian Inlet State Park.Cliff Partlow staff photographer My genealogy research has suffered lately due to the holidays and life in general. I finally made an appointment to have some long-needed outpatient surgery. The day came, and of course, genealogy was the last thing on my mind. As I lay on the surgery table, I was patted and reassured by the nurses that everything would be fine. I would only be asleep for a few minutes, and when I woke up, everything would be over. Then the nurse slipped the needle into my arm, (almost painlessly). A few minutes later, I was instantly awake. There were two nurses standing above my head, just out of sight, having a conversation. It concerned the sister of one grandmother being r elated to someone else in the family, and they were wondering what relationship that made these people to each other. I was right there with them. I r emember saying Oh, are you talking about genealogy? Im sure they must have been pretty surprised, and maybe annoyed, to have the patient join in on their private conversation. They answered back and agreed that, yes, they were discussing genealogy. I told them I was a genealogist and if I had my computer with me, I could give them their answer immediately. Of all times not to have my computer with me, just when I needed it! Why didnt I think to take it to the surgery room?? Genealogy Lesson No. 1: Always have your data close at hand. A few minutes later, as a nice nurse was slipping the needle out of my arm, I asked her who was asking the genealogy question. O h that was the surgery nurses, she said, You are now in recovery. We agreed that I must have taken another little nap after my conversation. I remember telling her that they had my information, and if they needed my help, they knew where to find me. I guess those drugs caused my ego to inflate dramatically! After leaving the facility, I began to think about this with skepticism, and suspect that it was a dream, but it seemed so real. I didnt have any names or faces to put with this incident, and I didnt want to make any bigger fool of myself by going back and asking everyone if it really happened. So how was I ever going to know if it was real or a dream? On my next visit, I asked how long I had been asleep. Then I asked if it was possible to wake up in the surgery room. Why? said the doctor. Did you want to? I explained that I thought that maybe I had, but wasnt sure if it was real or a dream. The nurse chimed in at this point. Y es, you woke up and joined right in on the conversation! I was both embarrassed to have intruded on someones conversation, and elated that the mere subject of genealogy could actually bring me back to consciousness. So with this thought in mind, to my family and friends, if I ever become unconscious, slip into a coma, or suffer from dementia (which runs in my family), just start talking to me about genealogy. I will instantly regain consciousness or sanity for at least a few minutes, and you can ask what you need to know before I leave you again.Genealogy keeps your mind sharpGENEALOGY GENEALOGY B RENDA K.

Few hobbies can be as enjoyable one moment and as frustrating the next as golf. Golfers know a great putt can be quickly followed by a bad tee shot, and maintaining their composure through the highs and lows of the game is a key to success on the links. M aintaining composure isnt always easy, even for the professionals. Its even more difficult for beginners, who quickly learn golf involves more than just spending sunny weekend afternoons on pristine golf courses. In fact, golf can be quite demanding and beginners would be wise to heed a few tips before hitting the course. Dont commit to an expensive set of clubs right off the bat. Golf clubs can be very expensive, so beginners should buy an affordable secondhand set of clubs so they can get the hang of what they like before spending a lot of money. Visit a pro shop and explain that you are a beginner. The shop will likely make some valuable suggestions and might even let you try out some clubs. In addition, many driving r anges allow customers to rent clubs and this can be a great and inexpensive way to find the right clubs for you. T ake lessons. Even the very best at self-teaching might find it extremely difficult to become a self-taught golfer. When first trying your hand at golf, take some lessons and dont expect to be playing 18 holes any time soon. Before hitting the course where you might be discouraged and y ou might frustrate those golfing behind you learn the fundamentals by taking a few lessons at the driving r ange. Learn from a professional, who wont offer you any hidden secrets to golfing glory (there arent any) but will offer sound advice on the games fundamentals. T ake the game home with you. B eginners can even take advantage of golfs vast popularity by taking the game home with them. This doesnt mean building a putting green in your backyard. Rather, purchase some instructional DVDs to learn the game during your down time throughout the week. Many golfers dont have time to hit the links during the week, but they do have time to watch some D VDs when they get home from work. S uch instructional DVDs can help you master your grip and stance, which y ou can then take with you to the course over the weekend. Ha ve fun. Golf is a fun game; it just takes time to hone your skills. But even if you arent ready for the professional tour after your first few rounds, y ou can still have fun. Dont let some beginners frustration, which every golfer experiences, ruin the fun of the game. Take note of your surroundings when you hit the links, and appreciate the time youre spending with your group. If the game becomes more a source of frustration than fun, then take a break and put in some more work away from the course, be it at the driving range or studying at home.10ST LUCIE CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2013FOREVER YOUNG GOLF D AN CAVERLY PGA, DIRECTOR OF INSTRUCTIONGOLFTips for newcomers to golf 046472 051956 051626SUDOKU PUZZLE ANSWER

4March 2013FOREVER YOUNGVO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS WHERE DO YOUR NEI GHBORS GO?TRAVEL T ens of millions of visitors come to F lorida every year, and a good many of them come to Volusia County. Thats no surprise. B ut where do East Volusia residents go when they want to travel? Well, that depends on whom you ask. Cr uises to the Caribbean, and theyre going back to Europe, said D enise Goins, owner of Discovery Tr avel in South Daytona. People are doing their bucket lists and going to Alaska and Hawaii or to Europe some big trip. I n my office, its Europe or cruises to the Caribbean or Panama, depending on the time of year, said Angie S haron, owner of Beachside Travel in N ew Smyrna Beach. B ut Marcya Wantuch, owner of Ro yal Coach Tours & Cruises in Port Orange, said this time of year, the travel markets are closer to home. D uring the winter, snowbirds like to take day trips (by bus), some place within a two-hour radius, like Amelia Is land, Ms. Wantuch said. They also enjoy mystery trips, not knowing where theyre going but knowing theyll have a good time. Ro yal Coach also offers multi-day trips by bus, such as a 3-day/2-night trip to Fort Myers she led last month or the trek to Key West she leads nearly every year. They also like cruises, which are very easy because (the price) includes food and entertainment, she added. S heryl Emmett, owner of Vivo T ours, also offers trips within the state. I want to educate (my clients) about Florida, Ms. Emmett said. Im trying to do things they would never think to do on their own. Fun and creative trips. F or example, a Vivo trip might take in Micanopy, near Cross Creek where M arjorie Rawlins lived and wrote T he Yearling and other stories, and towns to the north such as High Spr ings and Alachua, both of which have historic downtowns. Or it might be a day in Jacksonville, which has a w ealth of things to do that most people are unaware of, she said. (I take clients) somewhere they havent been, where they can spend the day and maybe have a nice lunch, she said. Vi vos day trips tend to stay in Florida, but Ms. Emmett also organizes ov ernight trips, such as her annual visit to Macon, Ga., ever year to see the cherry blossoms. She also has a multi-day trip by train coming up to Ybor City and the Tampa area F or me, its just a love of going places and learning something new, she said. There are all kinds of things y ou can make into fun tours, and thats my job. S ome travel agencies offer trips to other destinations, too. What were seeing is Europe is too expensive and risky, but cruises are always popular, said Don Franchi of A tlas Travel in Port Orange. (And) we r e seeing a lot of tours to Alaska and Hawaii; they are popular right now. B ut Franchi said the popularity of Alaska and Hawaii as destinations can be almost a cyclical thing, with H awaii being popular one year and not so much the next year. Maybe (those trips are popular) because its safer than travel to Europe, too. Ms. Goins is active in the local Polish-American Club, so she gets a lot of folks who want to travel to Eastern Eur ope to see where their families came from. N ot just Poland, but other countries, too, (such as) Lithuania, she said. O ur travel experts agree that during the winter, most East Volusia residents stay home unless theyre taking a cruise. They stay here and wait for the families to come visit them, Ms. Goins said, citing Bike Week as just one of the attractions for out-oftowners. While winter and summer are the busy seasons for cruises, she said travelers can get better prices in May and the September-to-November periods both for cruises and for trips to Europe. Ms. Sharon of Beachside Travel said local residents dont want to head north in the winter. I t s too cold, she said. In the winter, I get snowbirds who want to travel. Fall and spring are kind of deadish, but you can get a lot of discounts then. F or Royal Coach Tours, the busy season is usually September to Apr il, Ms. Wantuch said. B ut we still have day trips occasionally, she said. Right now we have six lined up for May, and one each in June, July and August. The locals who go on cruises generally drive to the port where they will board the ship; typically, for East Vo lusia residents, that means an easy drive to Port Canaveral. But as Ms. Goins pointed out, cruise ships also use ports in Jacksonville, West Palm B each, Fort Lauderdale/Miami and T ampa. S ome frequent travelers do make trips involving flights to out-of-state destination. Goins said most of them would use Orlando International Airport because the fares are lower and there are more airlines linking it with many more destinations. But some people would rather use Daytona B each International Airport when they can. D iane Rogers and her husband, Gene, fall into that category. The New S myrna Beach couple travel a lot and use Discovery Travels services, she By Joe CrewsF or Forever Young Photo by Joe CrewsVe rn and Doris Hargan of New Smyrna Beach board the bus for a Royal Coach Tours & Cruises trip to Fort Myers. Royal Coach specializes in tours within Florida, including Key West, and also has some outof-state tours.

5FOREVER YOUNGVO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2013 When traveling,especially ov erseas,follow these tried and truetips from Denise Goins at D iscovery Travel: Travelwith your passport as we ll as your birth certificate and drivers license.If you lose one, the other documents will help you prove your identity! Always takeXerox copies of y our passport and drivers license, and leave a copy at home. Take notes of your credit card numbersand the important telephone numbers for customer service for those credit cards.If they are lost or stolen, you will know whom to call. Call your credit card companies and advise them what countries you will visit, on which dates and with what ship or tour company. A BIGGY: if a husband and wife are traveling together, pack half of each others clothes in the others suitcase.The chance of two suitcases getting lost is half as likely. Use the new squeeze-by-hand v acuum-packing bags. They are great because they compress your clothes to 1/4 the thickness, and the apparel get less wrinkled because it doesnt slosh around in your suitcase. Always travel with a smallroll of packing tape; it can repair your suitcase, shoes, handbags, glasses, and other items. F or details on these and other topics,go to www.tsa.gov.TIPS FOR TR AVEL ERS said. I prefer Daytona Beach if I can, D iane Rogers said. I like to fly D elta, which goes through Atlanta, but I like the Atlanta airport. The cost of flying out of Daytona B each isnt much more than that of flying out of Orlando, Ms. Rogers said. And the local airport is much more convenient, as the couple discovered when they arrived home from an early February trip to P hoenix, Ariz. O ur flight from Atlanta was an hour late, but it was no problem at Da ytona coming in at 11 p.m., she said. It would have been a problem coming back to Orlando that late. Bu t sometimes, the Rogerses have to settle for using OIA, like on a trip to California they took with another couple later in the month. The foursome was able to cut down on the number of layovers by flying out of Orlando, she said. Donna Lampe of Daytona Beach is another customer who takes Discovery Travel cruises a couple of times a year. But Lampe, a widow, also usually makes two trips a year to see her adult children one in Oregon and the other in California. I f all I do is fly and have a car r ental, I do it myself online, Ms. Lampe said. I use (Ms. Goins) for cruises. I wouldnt do that on my o wn. As a travel agent, she knows the ins and outs. And she appreciates some of the other advantages a good travel agent can provide. In her case, Ms. Goins helps find traveling partners for her so they can get doubleoccupancy rates instead of paying higher single-occupancy rates. I m very, very comfortable using her, Ms. Lampe said.Tr avelF rom page 4 045264Royal Coach T ours & Cruises,Inc.

6March 2013FOREVER YOUNGVO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS Wo rk is becoming a memory. Good food, beautiful scenery and a great time are ahead. In Georgia Interstate 95 is under construction as usual, but the traffics flowing pretty well. Then a noise, something doesnt feel right, doesnt smell right. Steam is billowing from under the hood. B etter pull over. Just like that you can find yourself having a Chevy Chase v acation, at the mercy of a roadside r epair shop mechanic in another state who will stare at you without an ounce of compassion as he swipes y our credit card adding an extra thousand or two to your balance. Chilling isnt it? Thats the price of procrastination. J ohn Abramovic has owned Ormond Fine Autos in Ormond B each since he retired 10 years ago. The former insurance agent doesnt take chances, and he doesnt want his customers to, either. Hes seen it before. The factory designates 80,000 miles as the time to change the timing belt. The car owner lets it slide to 110,000 and ends up having to buy a new engine. Unlike the insensitive r oadside guy in Georgia, Mr. Abr amovic cannot bear to see people in this situation. So with every oil change, Ormond F ine Autos completes a 28 point check including hoses, belts, fluids, brakes, coolants, wiper blades, hydraulic system, tires, struts, shocks, muffler/exhaust pipes, battery cables, filters, air conditioning, leaks, fuel injectors and more. A basic oil change is always the first thing you should do, Mr. Abr amovic said. Get belts, fluids and hoses checked. Those are very inexpensive things that could be a nightmare on the road. O ther things Mr. Abramovic said people tend to neglect are lights and tires. There could be a license plate light or brake light out, he said. Its just the price of a light bulb when who knows what the price of a ticket in some other state would be? C orrect tire pressure saves money in fuel and wear and tear on tires, he added. Another really important thing is the spare tire, Mr. Abramovic said. S ome people with new cars dont even know where their spare is. Or the spare sits so long that its gone flat and the car owner doesnt realize it until its needed. Pr evention is best, but Mr. Abr amovic advises customers to call their hometown technician if they find themselves in the hands of a mechanic elsewhere whos telling them they need costly repairs. P ut that technician on the phone with your regular technician, the one y ou trust, and have him explain the problem, the price and other details. There are a lot of unscrupulous people out there, Mr. Abramovic said. Ormond Fine Autos, which services both foreign and domestic cars, is at 82 N. Yonge St., Ormond Beach.

7FOREVER YOUNGMarch 2013 VO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS Within 100 miles of any home in Volusia County, there is a wealth of unexpected and fun places to visit. S ome like the Orlando theme parks and Daytona International Speedway are obvious, but there are many smaller and less well-known spots that also can be entertaining. Taking the time to investigate some of these out-of-the-way spots can be rewarding. One of my favorites is Spring Garden Ranch near DeLeon Springs in We st Volusia. The ranch is a large training facility for trotter horses and jockeys. The restaurant that overlooks the big clay track serves a nice breakfast and lunch, and while you dine, y ou can watch the trainers put the horses through their paces through the big windows. The whole scene is pastoral and soothing to the senses and jangled nerves of urban dwellers. S ome may recall the ranch was featured in an iconic TV commercial back in the 1980s. The ad told of the special place deep in the central F lorida forests and warned if you visit, dont bring your Master Card. V isa was then the only card they accepted. That has changed, but the beauty of Spring Garden Ranch hasn t. Call (386) 985-5654 for details. Also in DeLeon Springs, you will find a rustic pancake house in D eLeon Springs State park. You can have breakfast in a most unique way. The restaurant provides the materials for you to cook your pancakes on the griddle at the center of each table. Good fun for the whole family. If your grandkids are mostly bored spending time with you, this one is guaranteed to be a hit with them. The beautiful spring boil is a year-round swimming hole and there is boating available. To get in on the fun, call (386) 985-4212. Another spring to visit is Ocalas famous Silver Springs. While the park and glass bottom boat rides can be great fun, you might want to try boating it on your own. Just west of the big O cklawaha River Bridge on State Ro ad 40, you will find public boat r amps where you may launch your outboard, canoe or kayak to traverse the gorgeous Silver River. From the launch up to the spring boil is a long, no wake ride of about four miles. Along the way you may encounter F lorida whitetail deer, wild hogs and turkeys, otters, scores of turtles and many alligators. The most famous r esidents there are the troops of wild r hesus monkeys that inhabit the shore. Word has it that years ago a few monkeys were either left behind or r eleased by a movie company and through the years they have done quite well. Now there are several large families that come to the waters edge to beg for food. The river itself is enough for you to make the trip. In most places it is over 30 feet deep and so clear you can spot a dime on the bottom. When my own children were yo ung, we watched a seven-foot alligator trying to chase down a river otter in the deep, clear water. That was an exciting sight to be sure.

8March 2013FOREVER YOUNGVO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS Over on the east coast, dont forget about the original Marineland, the oldest water park in the U.S. There you can swim with the dolphins and see a great show and it lies just 15 miles north of Flagler B each. Back in the day, the place was the site of many movies with the most famous being The Creature From The Black Lagoon. While the attraction is great, you wont want to miss the beach. As y ou may or may not know, there is no natural stone in Central or S outh Florida but there the beach is laden with boulders. The big r ocks are actually fossilized seashells, coral, sand and clay in the form of coquina, the only solid building material found locally. For show times, call (877) 933-3402. Those are some of my favorite places in Florida and they are all within a few hours drive. Enjoy. LandlinesF rom page 7 Staying afloat:tips for beginnersBOATING Learning to boat or sail is similar to learning to drive an automobile. Neither one happens overnight. Learning to get around on the water can be exciting, but it can also be intimidating to take over the reins of a boat for the first time. Though beginners might be apprehensive when they first start to boat or sail, there are some tips that can make it a little easier for those new to captaining their own ship. S tart small. M uch like teenagers learning to drive are often more comfortable learning behind the wheel of a compact car, boating beginners might be more comfortable learning to sail on a small boat. Smaller boats are easier to maneuver, making even the most nervous novice a little more comfortable. Choose calm waters in which to practice. A ccording to the United S tates Coast Guard, in 2010, there we re more than 4,600 recreational boating accidents that involved 672 deaths. Beginners should always practice in calm waters that dont boast big waves or lots of fellow boaters. This gives beginners the chance to learn the feel of the boat without the added pressure of handling choppy waters or traffic. R ead the weather reports. V eteran boaters struggle with inclement w eather from time to time, so beginners should expect to struggle with adverse conditions, as well. But dont be caught off guard by bad weather. Always check the weather reports before going out, and be sure to bring along appropriate attire and gear. Do n t go it alone. B oating and sailing come with their own terminology, which beginners are typically unfamiliar with. Before heading out on the water, learn as much of this terminology as possible be it by studying manuals or books or even asking experienced friends for help. R espect other boaters. Boat ing is a hobby enjoyed by millions, and boaters should always respect that there are other people on the water, as well. Whether youre out in the middle of the ocean or relaxing at the pier on your docked boat, respect the other boaters by keeping the music down and always discarding of trash in a responsible way.

9FOREVER YOUNGVO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2013 My genealogy research has suffered lately due to the holidays and life in general. I finally made an appointment to have some long-needed outpatient surgery. The day came, and of course, genealogy was the last thing on my mind. As I lay on the surgery table, I was patted and reassured by the nurses that everything would be fine. I would only be asleep for a few minutes, and when I woke up, everything would be ov er. Then the nurse slipped the needle into my arm, (almost painlessly). A few minutes later, I was instantly awake. There were two nurses standing above my head, just out of sight, having a conversation. It concerned the sister of one grandmother being r elated to someone else in the family, and they were wondering what r elationship that made these people to each other. I was right there with them. I remember saying Oh, are you talking about genealogy? Im sure they must have been pretty surprised, and maybe annoyed, to have the patient join in on their private conversation. They answered back and agreed that, yes, they were discussing genealogy. I told them I was a genealogist and if I had my computer with me, I could give them their answer immediately. Of all times not to have my computer with me, just when I needed it! Why didnt I think to take it to the surgery room?? Genealogy Lesson No. 1: Always have y our data close at hand. A few minutes later, as a nice nurse was slipping the needle out of my arm, I asked her who was asking the genealogy question. O h that was the surgery nurses, she said, You are now in recovery. We agreed that I must have taken another little nap after my conversation. I remember telling her that they had my information, and if they needed my help, they knew where to find me. I guess those drugs caused my ego to inflate dramatically! After leaving the facility, I began to think about this with skepticism, and suspect that it was a dream, but it seemed so real. I didnt have any names or faces to put with this incident, and I didnt want to make any bigger fool of myself by going back and asking everyone if it really happened. So how was I ever going to know if it was real or a dream? On my next visit, I asked how long I had been asleep. Then I asked if it was possible to wake up in the surgery r oom. Why? said the doctor. Did you want to? I explained that I thought that maybe I had, but wasnt sure if it was real or a dream. The nurse chimed in at this point. Y es, you woke up and joined right in on the conversation! I was both embarrassed to have intruded on someones conversation, and elated that the mere subject of genealogy could actually bring me back to consciousness. So with this thought in mind, to my family and friends, if I ever become unconscious, slip into a coma, or suffer from dementia (which runs in my family), just start talking to me about genealogy. I will instantly regain consciousness or sanity for at least a few minutes, and you can ask what you need to know before I leave you again.Genealogy keeps your mind sharpGENEALOGY GENEALOGY B RENDA K.

10March 2013FOREVER YOUNGVO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS Lets talk divots.So many of my students think that if they take a divot, it means that theyve hit a good golf shot. Thats not necessarily true, it depends on where that divot is in relation to the ball. There are two critical things that you must do to take a correct divot, one that is in front of the ball, and these two movements can be rehearsed, practiced, and learned. A proper weight shift is critical. A good divot starts either at the ball or even a little on the target side of the ball. In fact, LPGA and PGA Tour players start their divots anywhere from 2 to 4 inches in front of the ball. They seldom hit the ball fat where the club strikes the ground before it strikes the ball. This is how they do it: As they near the top of the backswing, their left hip starts to move toward the target. This slight lateral movement shifts their weight early in the swing from the right foot to the left foot so that at impact, their left foot has 75 percent of their weight on that foot. This w eight shift keeps the grip end of the club ahead of the club head resulting in a solid ball-first contact. A sitting of the knees and hips My first instructor, Jack Mackie Jr., told me y ears ago how all great players sit through the impact area. Their knees flex more through impact then their original knee flex in the setup position. So as their weight shifts to the left foot before impact, their knees and hips are lowering slightly, so that not only is the ball struck before the club hits the ground, but the club is lowered thus taking the divot on the target side of the ball. W ant to try it for yourself? Heres how to rehearse, practice, and learn in two steps. 1. S tep 1 Get into your address position to an imaginary ball with a lawn chair 2 inches from your left hip. S wing to the top of the backswing and feel that 70 to 85 percent of your weight has naturally shifted to your right foot. Then slowly move your left hip laterally into the chair as the hips naturally turn. Get to the impact position and feel that most of your weight is on the outside of your left foot and your right heel is slightly off the ground. If you do this in front of a mirror, it should look like Photo No. 1. Do this enough times so that it feels natural before trying it with range balls. 2. S tep 2 Either with a bag stand on the range or with a carton of milk in y our snowed in living room, get your trusty 7 iron right up against the object. Now, move your left hip toward y our target and feel the weight move more to your left foot as your knees flex more than they were at setup; your left wrist remaining flat, and your right heel coming off the ground. This is what all good teachers teach in the golf swing, a correct impact position. By r ehearsing these two critical moves your ball striking will drastically improve through more solid contact of club to ball. Oh, and your friends will be impressed with your divots!

13FOREVER YOUNGVO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2013 Tr aveling with HerbsHERB C ORNER As an herbalist I never travel without my herbal first-aid kit, which is fortunate because it has come in handy on many occasions. My kit is a makeup case but it can be a plastic box, tackle box, sewing box, or an old purse. The herbs I carry have addressed many issues such as colds, blisters, nausea, diarrhea, sunburn, sea-sickness and muscle aches. The more I travel the more issues I come up with. The most important thing to remember is to clearly label all that you are carrying with the herb name, uses and dosage. Youd be surprised what y ou forget in an emergency. My kit contains the following herbs along with band-aids, gauze, scissors, tape and tweezers. With these you too can be prepared for many conditions encountered on y our travels. E chinacea extract helps both internal and external infections including wounds a cold or the flu. Ive used it on venomous bug bites and as a gargle for a sore throat. H omeopathic Arnica and Arnica salve help reduce inflammation and pain. When used immediately they can help prevent bruising. I carry a small amount of homeopathic Arnica with me in my purse; it helped when I was in a car accident to prevent bruising. It works by influencing levels of NF kappa-B a central mediator of inflammation. Dried Ginger comes in handy for sea sickness, motion sickness and nausea when made into a tea. In a tea as a nasal wash I have used it to relieve sinus congestion and when added to a bath it helped a severe cold and body aches. Powdered Yarrow applied topically on wounds disinfects and stops the bleeding. This is probably why soldiers carried Yarrow with them since medieval times. Burn Salve made with Calendula, Plantain, Comfrey and St. Johns Wort. This blend helps sunburns, cuts, bruises, splinters, blisters, dry skin, chapped lips and nose bleeds. Elderberry extract for cough and respiratory infections, it contains compounds that prevent flu viruses from invading and infecting cells. I also carry the essential oils of P eppermint, Tea Tree and Lavender. P eppermint is used to relieve sore muscles and headaches. It works by depleting substance P (a neurotransmitter that registers pain). I dilute P eppermint with jojoba oil because it can be irritating to skin. I have also used it on long road trips to keep me alert. Tea Tree works as an antiseptic for the mouth, cuts and bug bites plus it keeps bugs form biting you. 23 drops of Lavender can be put directly on a burn to relieve pain or to r elive the itch of a bug bite. 20 drops added to 2oz. cool water can be dabbed or sprayed on to sunburn. It can be applied to your temples to r elieve headaches and for insomnia. I have had plenty of opportunities to use my first aid kit, having it with me gives me peace of mind while Im on the road.
