LUCIE COUNTY Sh e' s walking to educate, to increase awareness and to be the example. And she's hoping her steps through St. Lucie C ounty will prompt someone to make first steps of their own. Lauren Book, the founder of Lauren's Kids, walked through the county on Ma r ch 28 as one of the many stops as she makes her way from Key West to T allahassee to raise awareness of the issue of sexual abuse. This is the third year she is making the 1,500-mile journey, but it isn't one she makes alone. In S t. Lucie County, she stopped at the Port St. Lucie City Hall where she was joined by government officials and volunteers willing to walk with her. She later held an awareness rally and picnic at Sportsman's Park on Prima Vista Blvd. Ms. Book endured sexual abuse for six years by her nanny. Through counseling, I r ealized I needed to turn this negative experience into a positive one," she said. No w, she is a nationally r ecognized advocate and works to change Florida laws to better prevent abuse. One of the changes that would make an out-of-court statement from older child victims of sexual abuse, sometimes called "victimless" prosecution, a stronger tool in trials. S he is also looking to expand the state's existing kindergarten prevention curriculum to include students in grades one through five, and to have the curr iculum include the topics of bullying and Internet safety. "H aving my voice heard catapulted me into advocacy," Ms Book said. H er walk will end on April 23, when she reaches Tallahasee and holds a rally at the state capitol. B ut hopefully, by then, a sexual abuse victim's first steps have already been taken. A ccording to statistics, there were more than 6,000 r apes reported in Florida in 2007, and more than 11,000 sexual offenses that included fondling and other forced sex offenses. The county is prepared for those victims to step forward. April is sexual assault awareness month, and in Fo rt Pierce, there is a program available on 411 South S econd St. The local group reached a milestone last year when the workers and volunteers re cognized 30 years of helping victims in the area. It works as a certified crisis r ape center for the 19th Circuit Court. The programs services include a 24-hour hotline, information and referral, crisis intervention, advocacy, support groups, prevention education and training, medical referrals, victim follow-up and emergency financial assistance. The program is free and is also offered in Spanish. It covers St. Lucie, Okeechobee, Indian River and Ma rt in County. F or more information,call (772) 462-1306.A hotline has been set up,and can be r eached by calling (866) 8287273.Fill pantry during eventST. LUCIE COUNTY Ev ery Thanksgiving the good people of our community rally to ensure that no one goes hungry for the holidays. The shelves of our food pantries are filled and, for a while, we don't have to worry that children and seniors in the community will go to bed hungry. B ut about this time of year, the cupboards once again are now bare in homes and food pantries. But with the community's help, the Van Duzer F oundation, Mustard Seed M inistries, Sarah's Kitchen and Florida's Blood Centers want to change that. On April 10, the Van Duzer F oundation, in conjunction with Big Apple Pizza Fort Pierce, will try to raise awareness by raising 100,000 pounds of food in one day. The goal is to try to reach 100,000 pounds of food raised in one day that will go to Mustard Seed Ministries. F lorida's Blood Centers now known as OneBlood will be on hand collecting donations of blood. P eople are asked to bring food donations to Big Apple Pizza between the hours of 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Wednesday, April 6. Fo r more details about the event,go to www.thevanduzerfoundation.org. Memorial honors abused children ST. LUCIE COUNTY One hundred and twenty-six flags, each one r epresenting a child; each one a name, an age, a memory. And as memories are occasionally called forth into the harsh light of r eality, so the organizers of the CASTLE memory flag field held a service on March 26 in St. Lucie C ounty to bring to light all the children in Florida who died last year of abuse and neglect. The large, white flags we re set up and organized by St. Lucie County firefighters and paramedics, and each one had the name of a child and the age they died attached. The majority of the children were under age 5 when they died. "T oday, I'm asking you to stand up for children that have lost their lives," said Theresa GarbarinoMa y, executive director for CASTLE, to the community leaders, law enforcement and volunteers who stood solemnly by. The organization was founded in 1981 to provide parenting education and resources for families in distress. It currently has a 99 percent success r ate of parents going through the program, and is projected to help approximately 1,600 families this year. This is critical, because less than one percent of the child welfare budget is spent on child abuse prevention," she said. This is the fifth memor ial service of its kind held recently. Similar ones have already taken place in Martin, Okeechobee and Indian River counties. This is a very emotional ceremony, but our goal is to raise awareness so we have fewer flags," she said. "One flag, one child, is too many." CASTLE's ninth annual S tomp Out child Abuse 5K run will take place at 6 a.m. April 20 at the Mets S tadium in Port St. Lucie. The money raised will go towards CASTLE's programs and services.

programs and initiatives for Tr easure Coast Food Bank. "W e' re here meeting a need." The programs offered at the facility include SNAP outreach and benefit assistance, nutrition education, senior programs, children and family programs and other outreaches involving local nonprofit groups. On March 21, the program celebrated its year anniversary by inviting a number of local businesses and nonprofits to share their information with local r esidents. Sa ve-A-Lot brought a mobile pantry, and a $10,000 grant provided from the company enabled volunteer managers and employees from area stores to hand out fruit, vegetables and other foods to residents. I nside Your Plate, there we re cooking demonstrations, nutrition information, a yoga demonstration and other wellness activities. Residents who came for the mobile pantry also came through the store, picking up information and asking nutritional questions. This was a great opportunity to raise awareness," said Ms. Cantu. "It's all about removing barriers for people to understand how to eat healthy." Going into their second y ear, the organization will be continuing with its veteran programs, migrant outreach services, senior nutritional programs and other client services. "W e hope this facility will be eventually duplicated, and the programs here will be offered to everyone in our area," Ms. Cantu said.

Hello, everyone. §I r ecently had one of the most informative w eeks in Port St. Lucie last w eek when two events took place that dealt with educating others about abuse. The first took place at the Po rt S t. Lucie City Hall on Ma r ch 28, as I watched Laur en Book walk to promote physical and sexual abuse awareness. This is the third year the community has seen her. Ms. Book does an annual "W alk in My Shoes," where she travels from Key West to T allahassee, finishing with a r ally at the state capital. S he not only promotes awareness for child abuse, she is also working on expanding the state's kindergarten abuse prevention curriculum to include grades up to the fifth grade, and include Internet safety and bullying. B ullying was also a topic the Port St. Lucie Police D epartment addressed during an informational family forum on March 28. This forum was directed at the students in Port St. L ucie, and helps them learn new ways to discourage bullying and how to support other students who are bullied. It 's good to know that local government has stepped up to address these concerns, and shown their support in helping the community with these difficult topics.

Lucie County was one of 11 Florida counties, including Okeechobee C ounty and the Indian River County School District, to receive the A+ rating. F or its fourth annual awards, the editors at Sunshine Review analyzed more than 1,000 qualifying government websites and graded each on a 10-point transparency checklist.

One of the things that many people are surprised to learn is that even when "nothing is happening," their computer is still extremely busy just keeping things alive. I don't know how many times I have been discussing something with a person as their machine sits "idle" when, all of a sudden, "chug chug chug," the hard drive starts working furiously. Or even more surprising, the machine suddenly crashes, even though no one was "at the wheel." Invariably they look at me and ask, "Why did it just do that?" S ometimes people have a hard time accepting that even though they are not pushing the mouse, typing away or actively doing something, their machine is not "resting." The reality is that even when y our computer appears inactive, it is still very busy with general housekeeping. There are tasks like monitoring the keyboard for input, painting the image on the display (dozens of times per second) or watching to see if the mouse moves. The list of chores goes on. Seriously, the list goes on and on and on! The tasks that your computer is constantly performing in the background are necessary for the function of the computer and are controlled, for the most part, by the operating system W indows. Just because we, the users, aren't giving the computer any input or are not paying attention to what's going on the display does not mean that the computer gets to take a break until we come back. Nope. As long as there is power to the machine and it's turned on, your computer is very busy indeed. U nderstanding that your computer is busy doing something all the time can help ease the fear that something is wrong. I know that when a computer user spends a small fortune on a new machine, it can be pretty disconcerting when, for no apparent reason, their new machine starts chugging and groaning. M any people are also surprised to find out just how much brain power it takes for their computer to move the mouse. People don't realize that even something as simple or basic as moving the mouse pointer takes so much of the computers resources. Often I will see someone move their mouse in big swirls just to make sure the machine is working not r ealizing that moving the mouse will actually distract the computer, drawing its attention away from the task at hand. Let's see just how much "brainpower" it takes your machine to move your mouse. Click the task bar with the right mouse button and then click Task Manager. In T ask Manager, click the Pe rf ormance Tab and take a look at the CPU Usage H istory. This will display your computers "brain activity" on a graph that is updated every second or so. Move your mouse in big arcs about the screen. You can see how hard the computer has to work just to move the mouse. No w, next time your machine is busy and you wonder if your machine has crashed, you may be tempted to "test it" by swirling the mouse around. Remember the performance monitor and r esist the urge. If your machine was close to crashing, "swirling the mouse" can, and often does, push it over the edge and actually cause the crash you we re trying to avoid. Fr ankly, I'm often amazed that modern machines still r un at all, what with all the stuff they have to do.

What immigration reform is really aboutLet's be perfectly clear. "Comprehensive Immigration R eform, or more accurately, "Amnesty for Illegal Aliens," is about one thing and one thing only: votes. Any person in government who says anything, and I mean anything, different is lying. Amnesty is here again (after being roundly trounced by We, the People on multiple occasions) because the Democrats want votes to get in and keep themselves in power in our government at all levels, local, state, and federal. It's clearly not about what's best for the country and its citizens or else Amnesty wouldn't even be discussed for one second. Liberal Sanctuary Cities across the country are controlled by Democrats. Now, even some R epublicans are willing to accept Amnesty because they lost at the polls in the last election. It's all about votes and these people will destroy the country to get them. Anyone who votes for Amnesty should be tried for treason. At the very least they must be targeted for defeat at the polls and kicked out of government for abject failure of their duties to the people who elected them, you know, American Citizens.Obamaism?Ev eryday living is made up of choices. For every negative there is a positive. Being gay is one of them. I believe gays should have the same rights all Americans enjoy as to work, education, achievement, etc. We are not to judge, but are to leave all judging to God. The big decision in Congress now is whether to enact Gay Marriage into law along with many other Godless and unconstitutional trappings liberals are shoving down our throats. Gay's make their own choices, but same sex marriages must not be "Enacted into Law." We can expect the loss of many blessings if this law is passed. Haven't we lost enough? Christianity, the Old and New Testaments, coincides with much history. Both agree the reason great nations fell is exactly where we are today. TV sitcoms today would be considered pornography fifty years ago. Blasphemy, homosexuality (as being funny, the norm, or family orientated). Audiences laughing like crazy at sexual situations and corny sexual jokes. Certain 'Reality' programs, men choosing women, women choosing men, totally sexual, are not entertaining, funny, nor are they intelligent. Mothers entering five year old girls into beauty contests made up to look 21. Kids have no childhood. All this has slipped slowly and silently into our lives and the lives of our kids. How many know the No. 1 cause of death in children in America? The answer is, "Parents." Being a young country we have come a long way as to choices, decisions and the lack of blessings. So, where do we stand today? We have "Obamaism" with his sadistic and satanic decisions (choices) on the table, while our country is failing fast. O ur oceans are polluted with oil, garbage, dead animals washing up on shore. The coral reefs of Florida are infected in some areas. Only one percent of water on earth is fit for human and animal consumption. Certain fish are extinct. How many of a certain age have ever known an asteroid to slam into this earth as of late or tsunami's? Devastating winter and summer storms and draught bombarding the U. S. causing food loss and prices to soar. The horrible abuse of children and crime fill our neighborhoods. Obama is not interested in these problems and has never put America first. O ur so-called leader will raise taxes of 'One Trillion Dollars' ov er the next 10 years. How much is that in one year? That's insane! Will the "Working Middle Class" be able to pay this? In ten years there would be no jobs and the entire population would be on welfare. What welfare? Cutting from our Defense and Law Enforcement (the best the world has ever known), is insane. Pensions are being taken away from the people who paid 'into' it all their working lives. Doctors are leaving their profession or retiring early because of "Obamacare". Where and how are all these millions and millions of immigrants expected to go? Most cannot speak English, won't find jobs (there aren't any), or pay taxes. Taking so much away from certain people and giving so much to others will meet in a huge crash. What part of this does 'ignorance' not understand? I am fed up with Obamaism, wimpy Republicans and D emocrats who will not staunchly fight him. Others have shed much blood, given their lives for many years to fight dictators all over the world. Americans are still dying and shedding blood for the freedom of this country. Lawmakers and all Americans must stand tall, act like men and women of God, and make the right decisions regarding all negative 'choices' for the good of all.Stop tossing trashEv ery day my dogs and I walk or bike ride Fleming Grant Rd. between Micco Rd. and the railroad tracks. Daily, there is new evidence of beer alcoholics, rum drinkers and cancer stick smokers throwing their garbage on the side of the road, rather than putting their cans of Bud, Bush, etc. bottles, cigarette packages in a receptacle at the local Cumberland Farms, W inn-Dixie store or even the re-cycle or garbage can at home. Obviously these people are lacking in education, good manners and a strong moral upbringing, never learning not to litter. Y ou can't call these people smart. Why? Read the following: One woman throws her empty cigarette boxes out the window. She put her credit card in the cellophane alongside the box. When spotted alongside the road, it was taken to the issuing Wells Fargo bank, where everyone had a good laugh. Another individual who also would fail a Mensa screening likes to put his Bud cans, Camel cigarettes boxes and scratch tickets in plastic bags and toss the alongside the road. This person couldn't even read his winning scratch ticket for $50.00. Thank you Mr. Trash throwing out that bag of garbage cost you and made me a winner. One day I noticed an empty McDonald bag, drink container and wrappers someone threw out the window onto Fleming Grant Rd. there was a $1.00 dollar bill laying alongside the bag. Upon further investigation inside the bag was a $10.00 bill more ones and small change. This highly uneducated person chucked the balance of their purchase in the bag and forgot. It is doubtful the persons who litter our road can or ever will r ead this rant, but perhaps when you read this, you might recognize someone you know that would benefit from this story and in telling or repeating it, you just might wake up the trash who are throwing garbage on Fleming Grant Road.Close Video Arcades?Don't our politicians have anything better to do than interfere with a person's right to enjoy and entertain themselves as they wish, as long as no harm is done to others. Well, here's my suggestion. If they are so concerned about video gaming, let's shut them down and convert them into Strip Clubs. That doesn't seem to be on anyone's radar now. Just think of the benefits. Instead of a few game repair clerks, we would employ hundreds of ladies in the workforce, increasing the tax base. And those folks that visit the arcades? I'm sure they will involve themselves in this new form of entertainment. B ut what about those seniors? Not a problem, after a visit to the clubs, they'll go back to their community. It's about time we gave the Villages a run for their money in the world of STD's. Hey, that would probably force the Health Department to reopen more clinics, employing more people. Personally, I don't see a down side It's a win-win situation. 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. In the four years before I took office, Florida lost more than 825,000 jobs, unemployment more than tripled from 3.5 percent to 11.1 percent, and state debt increased by $5.2 billion. T oday, our businesses have created more than 280,000 new private sector jobs, Florida's unemployment rate has dropped below the national average to 7.8 percent, we have paid down state debt by $2 billion; and we are not stopping there. We cut taxes, eliminated thousands of regulations on job creators, and invested in education. It's working. B ecause we made the hard choices over the last two y ears, we are able to make the smart choices to keep our economy growing this year. We have a projected budget surplus for the first time in six y ears. Our challenges are different in this budget, but our goal is absolutely the same: economic growth and job creation. This year, we have two priorities to keep our economy growing: first, remove the sales tax on manufacturing equipment to create more manufacturing jobs, and second, invest in our teachers by providing them a welldeserved pay raise. Our Florida Families First Budget supports these priorities while maintaining substantial r eserves. This is responsible stewardship of taxpayer money. Why are we so focused on creating jobs and improving education? Why do we focus on putting Florida Families F irst in our budget? Because every Florida family wants not just to dream, but to have the opportunity to make those dreams come true. We must invest in our education system, support our teachers and cut taxes to help create more jobs. Our work to cut spending and live within our means over the last two years has allowed us to once again invest in education. Student learning is important to the economy because the workers of tomorrow are in Florida classrooms today. The single most important factor in student learning is the quality of teaching. That is why we eliminated teacher tenure, and signed performance pay into law. It will take effect in 2014. Florida's education system is making tremendous progress, due in large part to our great teachers and many in the Legislature. Our students and teachers were recently ranked sixth for educational quality; and our fourth-graders scored among the highest in the world on a recent reading evaluation. The best way we can build on this progress is to reward our hard-working teachers with a $2,500 pay raise. Some say they are afraid that giving r aises to all teachers may mean that a teacher doing a bad job gets rewarded. But, thanks to our work, we are now in a better position than ever before to reward good teachers and move bad teachers out of the classroom. We don't want a war on teachers; we want a war on failure. An investment in Florida teachers is an investment in Florida's future because teachers change lives. That is why our budget increases K-12 education funding by more than $1.2 billion. This billion dollar commitment builds on our billion dollar investment in K12 education last year and our total education investment in state funding for K-12 schools this year is the highest state funding level in Florida history This represents an increase of more than $400 in per student funding over the current fiscal year. Getting a great education helps dreams come true and those dreams are almost always jobs. That is why our formula for success focuses on education and jobs. As long as even one Florida family needs a job, our work is not done. That is why we are committed to removing the sales tax on manufacturing equipment. Florida is one of only a few states with this tax, and we lag behind the nation in per capita manufacturing jobs. Manufacturing has a major impact on our economy because every manufacturing job supports two to three other jobs in our state. I believe Florida will be the number one place in the world for job creation, the number one place in the world to get a great education and the number one place in the world where families can afford to live. Everything we have done together over the last two years has been geared toward economic growth. It's working.Investing in jobs and education works GOVERNORRICK S COTT Phone (772) 465-5656 Fax (772) 465-5301Classified (772) 465-5551 Rants & Raves (772) 465-5504Circulation Inquiries 1 -866-913-6397 circulation@hometownnewsol.comPORTST.LUCIEV oted # 1 Community Newspaper in America in 2005, 2006, 2007.

Earl Stewart is the owner and general manager of Earl St e wart Toyota in North P alm Beach.The dealership is located at 1215 N.Federal H ighway in Lake Park.Contact him at www.earlstewarttoyota.com,call (561) 358-1474,fax (561) 658-0746 or email earl@estoyota.com. L isten to him on Seaview AM 960,FM 95.9 and FM 106.9, which can be streamed at www.SeaviewRadio.com every Saturday morning between 9 a.m.and 10 a.m.This column originally r an in October of 2006 and I thought the timing was very appropriate to run this column again. The current President of the S enate at that time, Ken Pr uitt, had formed a senate investigation committee to investigate the dealer fee and send the results to the F lorida legislature. In a nutshell, the recommendation was that the legislature ban or at least cap dealer fees as they have in other states. If you want to r ead the entire text of the S enate's recommendation, y ou can click on www.EarlS tewart.com and then "R esults of Florida Senate D ealer Fee Investigation." By the way, dealer fees are just as rampant as they were in 2006 and dealers are actually increasing the amount they charge. You can pick up a copy of almost any newspaper and find illegal ads by dealers who do not include their dealer fees in their advertised prices. Those who do comply with the law, include the price in just one car, and disclose it covertly by an alpha-numeric code, which means this stock number is the only one available that price. A customer would come in for the advertised car and it has "already been sold but they have another one just like it". What they don't tell you is that their dealer fee can now legally be added to advertised price because it isn't the same car that was advertised. D ear fellow Florida car dealer, I started in the retail car business in 1968, about 44 y ears ago, and I have seen a lot of changes in the way we dealers sell cars and the expectations of our customers. My r emarks in this column are made sincerely and with a positive intent toward y ou and your customers. I am not trying to tell you how to run your business; I am suggesting a change that will reward both you and y our customers. Vi r tually every car dealer in Florida adds a charge to the price of the cars he sells, va r iously referred to as a dealer fee," "documentary fee" or "dealer prep fee." This extra charge is printed on your buyer's orders and is programmed into your computers. It has been made illegal in many states, including California. You charge this fee to every customer and it ranges from a few hundred dollars to nearly a thousand. F lorida law requires that, if you charge a dealer fee to any customer, you must charge all customers. It also r equires that you disclose in writing on the buyer's order that this charge represents profit to the dealer. Florida law also requires that you include this fee in all advertised prices. You don't always do this, and you get around the law by limiting the number of advertised vehicles as few as one. The argument that I hear from most car dealers, when I raise this issue, is that the dealer fee is fully disclosed to the buyer on his buyer's order. But, most car buyers are totally unaware that they are paying this. Who reads all of the voluminous paperwork associated with buying a car? The few who notice it assume it is an "official" fee like state sales tax or license and registration fee. Those few astute buyers who do question the fee are told that y our dealership must charge this fee on every car, which would not be true if you we re to make the decision to not charge the dealer fee to anyone. These astute buyers are also told that all other car dealers charge similar fees. This is almost true, but, as you know, my dealership does not. The reason you charge this fee is simply to increase the cost of the car and your profit in such a manner that it is not noticed by your customer. This is just plain wrong. Dealers will admit this to me in private conversations and some will admit that they have considered eliminating the fee as I have, but are afraid of the drastic effect to their bottom line. By being able to count on an extra $895 in profit that the customer is not aware of or believes is an "official fee," y ou can actually quote a price below cost and end up making a profit. Or, if the price you quote the customer does pay you a nice profit, you can increase that profit by several hundred dollars. This "extra, unseen" profit is even better for you because you don't pay your salesmen a commission on it. That's being unfair to your employees as well as your customers. When the rare, astute buyer objects to the dealer fee, the law permits y ou to decrease the quoted price of the car by the amount of the dealer fee. This would have the same net effect of removing it. The salesman often won't permit this because he will lose his commission (typically 25 percent) on the decrease in his commissionable gross profit. If y ou don't know me, I should tell you that I don't profess to be some "holier than thou" car dealer who was always perfect. Although I never did anything illegal, when I look at some of my advertising and sales tactics 20+ years ago and more, I am not always proud. But, I have evolved as my customers have evolved. My customers' expectations, level of education, and sophistication are much higher today. Your customers are no different. As I began treating my customers and employees better, I discovered that they began treating me better. Ye s, I used to charge a dealer fee ($495), and when I stopped charging it a few y ears ago, it was scary. But I did it because I could no longer, in good conscience, mislead my customers. Just because everybody else was doing the same thing did not make it right. No w here is the good news. My profit per car did drop by about the amount www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, April 5, 2013 Po rt St. Lucie A7 772988 772867FP772-464-0019Hours: Mon-Sat 1pm 9pmR E N T A L SA V A I L A B L E50% OFF! 50% OFF!Allregular pricedAdult DVD'sADULTD VD'sstarting atADULT VHS TAPESBuy 1 Adult at $4& Get Another at3223 S.

But, when my customers realized that I was now giving them a fair shake and quoting the complete out-thedoor price with no "surprises," the word spread. My volume began to rise rapidly. Sure, I was making a few hundred dollars less per car, but I was selling a lot more cars. I was, and am, selling a lot to your former customers. My bottom line is far better than it was when I was charging a dealer fee. Y ou can do the same. Why am I writing this letter? I'm not going to tell you that I think of myself as the new Marshall that has come to "clean up Dodge." In fact, I am well aware that this letter is to some extent selfserving. Lots of people will r ead this letter to you and learn why they should buy a car from me, not you. And, I'm also aware that most dealers who read this will either get angry and ignore it, or not have the courage to follow my lead. But maybe y ou will be the exception. If y ou have any interest in following my lead, call me anytime. I don't have a secretary and I don't screen any of my phone calls. I would love to chat with you about this.

LUCIE COUNTY The Peter Busch Family F oundation and Southern Eagle Distributing donated $10,000 to the Chuck H ill Unit Boys & Girls Club in Port St. Lucie to help keep kids off the streets and in a safe environment. In S eptember, the Boys & G irls Club announced that the Chuck Hill Unit was in danger of closing its doors if $150,000 wasn't raised to help fund the Club. It costs the organization $1,000 per child to have them as a member afterschool per y ear; costs are kept as low as $10 per year for members as many are on free or r educed lunch. So the Peter Busch Family Foundation and Southern Eagle Distributing donated $10,000 to sponsor club members to attend the Chuck Hill Unit and participate in their effective youth development programs. The Chuck Hill Unit opened its doors over a y ear ago in a response to a neighborhood in need of a y outh development program, and currently serves 150 members.

TREASURE COAST The University of Florida's Tr easure Coast Gator Club will hold the sixth annual Tr easure Coast Gator Toast on May 8, at 5:30 p.m., at the M oorings Club in Vero B each. This year's event will prove to be another exciting evening to celebrate the G ator Nation, featuring scholarship awards to local students and UF Athletic Di r ector, Jeremy Foley as keynote speaker. Mr. Foley has handled virtually every aspect of UF's $96 million athletic program during his administrative career, rising from a ticket intern in 1976, and now, in his 21st year as athletic director. He is widely recognized for moving UF Athletics into the upper echelon of college sports, but is also known for being equally committed to student-athlete success in the classr oom, said Anthony Guettler, Treasure Coast Gator Club president. "This is going to be an evening to remember," Mr. G uettler said. "Not only is Je r emy Foley a great role model for our scholarship r ecipients, but he will give us an incredible perspective on the condition and future of UF sports. Everyone is excited and honored to welcome Mr. Foley to the Treasure Coast." In addition to Foley's keynote address, the Club will present more than $25,000 in scholarships to 18 students from Indian River and St. Lucie County who will attend UF in Gainesville or the UF Indian River R esearch and Education C enter in Fort Pierce in the fall. The evening will also include a sit-down dinner, one-of-a-kind silent auction items and vendors selling unique Gator gear. The Treasure Coast Gator T oast, is the signature event of the Treasure Coast Gator Club, which has awarded ov er $100,000 in scholarships to local UF students since 2007. Mr. Guettler said the Club's scholarship program is different from others because it is open to all students from Indian River or St. Lucie County who are pursuing an undergraduate degree from UF, not just graduating high school seniors. "With our program, we want to make sure that great students, who need a little help to complete their education, have the support they need," Mr. Guettler said. "Our scholarships are very helpful for older students pursuing a bachelor's degree, who have more limited options for applying for scholarship support." The Gator Toast is the major fundraising event for the scholarship program. O ther sources of funding are named scholarships which this year include the Arthur and Marian Block Endowment Fund, the Br yan Schirard Memorial F und, the Elizabeth F. Addison Memorial Scholarship, the Clint S. Malone Memorial Scholarship, the Mark and R obbie Pierce for the Hardee Family Foundation Scholarship, and a scholarship in honor of Ray and B eth Smith given by Trey S mith. The Club also hosts a va r iety of fundraising events throughout the year. The Treasure Coast Gator Club is a 501(c)3 organization governed by a local board of directors that celebrates UF and provides networking opportunities for local alumni and UF fans alike. The Club's core mission is to raise money to provide scholarships for I ndian River and St. Lucie C ounty students. F or more information, visit www.tcgatorclub.org.

LUCIE For some, celebrating who y ou are is easy. There are Ir ish Festivals, Renaissance Fairs, Star Trek C onventions and tattoo expos. But, for a growing segment of the community, celebrations haven't always been easy or accepted. That's why this y ear's Treasure Coast Pr ideFest, which celebrates gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual members of the community, and its board members are overwhelmed with the community's support. "O ver the past few y ears, it seems interest in Pr ide of the Treasure C oast, and our efforts to help the community while putting on a great event, has increased," said Cory Pfister, president, Treasure Coast Pr ide. "We're a small board of officers and directors who work yearr ound to collect donations from the community. Every dollar that is brought in to the organization is put right back into supporting organizations like Parents, F amily and Friends of Lesbians and Gays of Ve ro B each, Project R esponse, St. Lucie Coun ty on Aging, and ultimately PrideFest." Pr ideFest welcomes many vendors, from companies and charitable organizations, to corporate sponsors and food and craft vendors. This y ear, there will be many new vendors, along with plenty of returning ones. "I think over the years the community has seen and recognizes our efforts and the vision we have for the Pride organization," Mr. Pfister said. This coming year, the board of Pride of the Tr easure Coast would like to focus on bringing new members, volunteers and committee members on board to help put on an amazing event, have fun and serve the community." Throughout the year Pr ide of the Treasure C oast puts on several events to help raise donations for PrideFest. The most successful and most talked about event is Dining with the Stars; a dinner and celebrity illusion event performed by entertainers from across the state. This year's sponsors include Treasure Coast Lexus and Treasure Coast To y ota, REBAR nightclub, home of the official afterparty, and Bottom's Up Bever age. There will be plenty of entertainment, including: DJ Joshua Atom, Kelli R andell; Dominique Taylor; Shelita Taylor; Miss Tr easure Coast Continental Elite, Trish Stevens; Dr agon Blade Taylor, R eggie B. Coxworthy and F amily; Roxxxy Andrews, current contestant on Ru P aul's Drag Race; S pikey Van Dykey; Palm Be ach Makos cheerleaders; Rafael Gomez, with C enter Stage Dance Production; Category 5 & the S torm Horns; and a few more surprises.

LUCIE Those who consider chicken wings as a major food group can rejoice at the South F lorida Wingfest on April 6. Fr om hot and spicy to tangy raspberry, the most adventurous palates will be tempted by vendors who are making it top priority to win the one of the annual chicken wing titles. "W e have lots of restaur ants involved this year," said John Mangan of All in F un. "Last year's winner, Chinese Thai To Go, is in the competition again, but they've got some competition. It'll be great to see who wins this year." A wards for "People's Choice, "Best Wing in South F lorida," "Most Creative," and "Hottest" are up for grabs. The event, which will take place from noon to 9:30 p .m. at the Martin Health S ystem Village Square at the Po rt S t. Lucie Civic Center, will also include a large entertainment area for children that will include bounce houses and slides and other kid activities. Entrance into the Kid Zone is $5 and is good for all day. The kids will have a large play area and for $5 they can go in and out as much as they want," he said. "It'll give them a place to run off some energy." F or $20, visitors can purchase a ticket that lets them taste a wing from each of the contestants. Judges will decide on the winners, who will be announced at 7 p.m. This year's event will also feature live music, a car show, and a seating area for guests who want to relax after sampling the delicious wings.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY The Indian River State C ollege Hallstrom Planetarium will present the galactic show, The Planets. In a recorded narration by K ate Mulgrew (Captain K athryn Janeway of "Star Tr ek: Voyager"), Ms. Mulgrew takes the audience on a grand tour of the solar system and visits to Earth's neighboring worlds. S ee a comet collide with J upiter, fly along the Ma r iner Valley, the Grand C anyon of Mars and stand at the edge of the 10-mile-high ice cliffs of Uranus' moon, Mi r anda. Travel to far-flung P luto and out to the distant r ealms of other solar systems in this exciting show. The Planets will be presented on April 5 and 6, Ap r il 19 and 20, May 17 and 18, and June 14 and 15. P lanetarium show times are Fr iday evenings at 7 and 8 p .m. and Saturday afternoons at 1 and 2 p.m. Tickets are $3 each and may be purchased at the IRSC Box Office at the McAlpin Fine Arts Center or by calling (800) 220-9915 with VISA, D iscover, American Express, or MasterCard or visit www.irsc.edu. P lanetarium shows are recommended for adults and for children over the age of four. The Hallstrom planetarium's temperature is maintained at 72 degrees and visitors may want to bring a light jacket or sweater. The first day of the fourth month of every y ear is a time when strange happenings occur, and this year is no exception. At B ushwood Golf and C ountry Club in Farfaraway, N ew York, sides have been taken with regard to the club's lone mime member. Ye s, I said "mime." Gerard Pa r doo is a student of the late, great Marcel Marceau and a long-standing member at Bushwood. The problem seems to be in that the other members at this prestigious club no longer wish to see Mr. Pardoo and his "antics." "I t started a couple years back when he petitioned the club to have a member/mime tournament," said Club President J oe Knowitall. "We have traditionally had a member/guest, but he wished to expand it to have mimes playing with every member. That was not acceptable to the rest of our membership." No w, in court papers filed on the first of this month, the club is taking action to expel Mr. Pardoo and revoke his membership. The documents filed cite that he is a distraction when playing, that he never speaks to anyone and that his makeup scares the children of other club members. Mr. Pardoo's response, sent through his attorney, states, "I have never been anything but the perfect member. Never have I voiced my opinions out loud. When I play I always hear the female members gossiping and interrupting the quiet others need to hit their shots. I do no such thing. I'm always quiet and r espectful." B ushwood's members offer a slightly different version. "H e used to be fun to play with, but now he is trying too hard," said one member who asked to not to be identified. "My daughter loved him when she was r eally small. Now, when he plays in the summer and his makeup runs from sweating in the heat, he looks very scary. He made my daughter cry the last time she saw him. She calls him 'the scary clown.'" Mr. Pardoo's attorney r esponded, "A clown? Se r iously? This just goes to show you the lack of understanding these people have for my client. A mime is nothing like a clown. A mime is a true artist, not a birthday party sideshow!" How ever, the complaints are coming in from more than just one member. "O ur members are complaining that his act is w earing thin," Mr. Knowitall continued. "Every time after hitting his tee shot he will not leave the tee box without going through the whole 'I'm stuck in an invisible box' routine. He then makes someone from the group go to his cart, r emove the key and come unlock the invisible door so that he can leave the tee box. It's funny on the first hole, but gets quite old about the third time." O ther complaints about Mr. Pardoo include having to use an imaginary rope to pull himself out of bunkers. M embers say that he always r equires one or more players in his group to help pull on the rope to get him out of the trap. The court documents also state that Mr. Pardoo has become a hazard on the course. "H e never yells 'Fore!' when he hits a wayward shot," states the club's champion, Dave Shooter. "I was hit once by one of his many poor drives and he said nothing. He just stood there holding up four fingers and shrugged his shoulders." "H e also holds up play," said another member. "If his putt just misses and stops within an inch or two from going in, he will drop to the ground and use some sort of pantomime to get the ball to go in the hole. He pretends to pull on a string that's attached to the ball, or to use an imaginary pool cue to knock the ball in. He thinks it's darn funny that w e're waiting to putt and he's going through this garbage. Soon I'm going to toss him in one of the lakes." Mr. Pardoo's written r esponse to these accusations was simple. I'm using mime telepathy. It's like mental telepathy, but better (smiley face). As for throwing me in a lake, I'm not scared, I will just put myself in an airtight bubble and stroll out of the lake. B esides, with all the balls these numbskulls hit into the water, it can't be very deep." So the sides have been drawn in what could be a long and very nasty battle between the members at B ushwood. I'm unsure who I would side with, but I'm glad I don't have to be on the jury should it get that far. Stay tuned as I continue to watch this monumental case unfold.

With everybody getting his or her yards ready for spring, the one thing everybody wants is color. C olor is one of the main elements that make your yard stand out. One of the most practical ways is through the use of roses. R oses are beautiful flowers that symbolize love and friendship. I magine yourself entertaining your friends in a lovely alcove surrounded by colorful flowers. Roses are relatively easy to grow and are a great choice because they will often grow where other flowers won't because of Florida's intense summer sun. R oses can be successfully planted in either containers or in the ground. In either case, the plants should be in welldrained soil in a sunny location. If y ou plant your treasures in the ground, be sure the soil drains well. Dig a hole about 15 18 inches wide and eighteen inches deep. Put a layer of gravel on the bottom of the hole. This is to allow drainage so water drains away from the root system. The same would apply if you plant y our roses in a container. The next step is to prepare the soil you are going to use to plant your r oses. You should use a mix of a good quality potting soil with around half the mixture composed of organic matter such as mulch or peat. You can also use some bone meal with your soil mixture. No w, it's finally time to plant your prize. Carefully r emove the plant from its original container. Place the plant in your prepared hole so the top of soil layer on the plant is the same level as the surrounding soil. Fill the gap underneath the plant with your prepared soil mixture. No w, fill the gaps around the remaining parts of the plant and pack down lightly. You are now ready to water in your newly planted rose. Y ou finally have your r oses planted and they are bursting with color, now y ou need to do some periodic maintenance to maintain that beauty. S ince we live in such a humid climate, certain diseases such as black powdery mildew and black spot can both be a common problem. Both diseases are much easier to control if you prevent them happening in the first place. Once established, both are very difficult to get rid of. Although there are many products on the market that are used for disease control on roses, Orthenex r eigns as the king. The product controls not only diseases, but also controls insect infestation as well. If y ou are interested in an all-natural cure for fungus, how about baking soda? Plain ordinary baking soda added at the r ate of three teaspoons per gallon of water. You then can add a small amount of mild dish detergent to the mix to act as a spreader sticker. This will work as a preventive measure, but will not work well if an infection is present. Be sure not to make your mix too strong as damage to y our roses could result. W ith all the remedies that we have at our disposal for controlling r ose problems, probably the best way is prevention. One way is to avoid watering late in the day so the leaves of the plant do not stay wet all night. Also it is important to have good soil drainage. R oses are heavy feeders and like a good supply of food. Roses should be fed at least once a month. You can use a good quality commercial food or you can use your own mix, which should consist of one cup of bone meal, one cup cottonseed meal, onehalf cup blood meal, onehalf cup fishmeal and onehalf cup Epsom salts. You can spread this mix around each plant and then water in. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

LUCIE COUNTY Sh e s walking to educate, to increase awareness and to be the example. And shes hoping her steps through St. Lucie C ounty will prompt someone to make first steps of their own. Lauren Book, the founder of Laurens Kids, walked through the county on Mar ch 28 as one of the many stops as she makes her way from Key West to T allahassee to raise awareness of the issue of sexual abuse. This is the third year she is making the 1,500-mile journey, but it isnt one she makes alone. In S t. Lucie County, she stopped at the Port St. Lucie City Hall where she was joined by government officials and volunteers willing to walk with her. She later held an awareness rally and picnic at Sportsmans Park on Prima Vista Blvd. Ms. Book endured sexual abuse for six years by her nanny. Through counseling, I r ealized I needed to turn this negative experience into a positive one, she said. Now, she is a nationally r ecognized advocate and works to change Florida laws to better prevent abuse. One of the changes that would make an out-of-court statement from older child victims of sexual abuse, sometimes called victimless prosecution, a stronger tool in trials. S he is also looking to expand the states existing kindergarten prevention curriculum to include students in grades one through five, and to have the curr iculum include the topics of bullying and Internet safety. H aving my voice heard catapulted me into advocacy, Ms Book said. H er walk will end on April 23, when she reaches Tallahasee and holds a rally at the state capitol. B ut hopefully, by then, a sexual abuse victims first steps have already been taken. A ccording to statistics, there were more than 6,000 r apes reported in Florida in 2007, and more than 11,000 sexual offenses that included fondling and other forced sex offenses. The county is prepared for those victims to step forward. April is sexual assault awareness month, and in Fo rt Pierce, there is a program available on 411 South S econd St. The local group reached a milestone last year when the workers and volunteers re cognized 30 years of helping victims in the area. It works as a certified crisis r ape center for the 19th Circuit Court. The programs services include a 24-hour hotline, information and referral, crisis intervention, advocacy, support groups, prevention education and training, medical referrals, victim follow-up and emergency financial assistance. The program is free and is also offered in Spanish. It covers St. Lucie, Okeechobee, Indian River and Ma rt in County. F or more information,call (772) 462-1306.A hotline has been set up,and can be r eached by calling (866) 8287273.Fill pantry during eventST. LUCIE COUNTY Ev ery Thanksgiving the good people of our community rally to ensure that no one goes hungry for the holidays. The shelves of our food pantries are filled and, for a while, we dont have to worry that children and seniors in the community will go to bed hungry. B ut about this time of year, the cupboards once again are now bare in homes and food pantries. But with the communitys help, the Van Duzer F oundation, Mustard Seed M inistries, Sarahs Kitchen and Floridas Blood Centers want to change that. On April 10, the Van Duzer F oundation, in conjunction with Big Apple Pizza Fort Pierce, will try to raise awareness by raising 100,000 pounds of food in one day. The goal is to try to reach 100,000 pounds of food raised in one day that will go to Mustard Seed Ministries. F loridas Blood Centers now known as OneBlood will be on hand collecting donations of blood. P eople are asked to bring food donations to Big Apple Pizza between the hours of 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Wednesday, April 6. Fo r more details about the event,go to www.thevanduzerfoundation.org. Memorial honors abused children ST. LUCIE COUNTY One hundred and twenty-six flags, each one r epresenting a child; each one a name, an age, a memory. And as memories are occasionally called forth into the harsh light of r eality, so the organizers of the CASTLE memory flag field held a service on March 26 in St. Lucie C ounty to bring to light all the children in Florida who died last year of abuse and neglect. The large, white flags we re set up and organized by St. Lucie County firefighters and paramedics, and each one had the name of a child and the age they died attached. The majority of the children were under age 5 when they died. T oday, Im asking you to stand up for children that have lost their lives, said Theresa GarbarinoMa y, executive director for CASTLE, to the community leaders, law enforcement and volunteers who stood solemnly by. The organization was founded in 1981 to provide parenting education and resources for families in distress. It currently has a 99 percent success r ate of parents going through the program, and is projected to help approximately 1,600 families this year. This is critical, because less than one percent of the child welfare budget is spent on child abuse prevention, she said. This is the fifth memor ial service of its kind held recently. Similar ones have already taken place in Martin, Okeechobee and Indian River counties. This is a very emotional ceremony, but our goal is to raise awareness so we have fewer flags, she said. One flag, one child, is too many. CASTLEs ninth annual S tomp Out child Abuse 5K run will take place at 6 a.m. April 20 at the Mets S tadium in Port St. Lucie. The money raised will go towards CASTLEs programs and services.

programs and initiatives for Tr easure Coast Food Bank. W e re here meeting a need. The programs offered at the facility include SNAP outreach and benefit assistance, nutrition education, senior programs, children and family programs and other outreaches involving local nonprofit groups. On March 21, the program celebrated its year anniversary by inviting a number of local businesses and nonprofits to share their information with local r esidents. Sa ve-A-Lot brought a mobile pantry, and a $10,000 grant provided from the company enabled volunteer managers and employees from area stores to hand out fruit, vegetables and other foods to residents. I nside Your Plate, there we re cooking demonstrations, nutrition information, a yoga demonstration and other wellness activities. Residents who came for the mobile pantry also came through the store, picking up information and asking nutritional questions. This was a great opportunity to raise awareness, said Ms. Cantu. Its all about removing barriers for people to understand how to eat healthy. Going into their second y ear, the organization will be continuing with its veteran programs, migrant outreach services, senior nutritional programs and other client services. W e hope this facility will be eventually duplicated, and the programs here will be offered to everyone in our area, Ms. Cantu said. F or more information or for volunteering opportunities,call (772) 464-9617 or go online to stophunger.org. Hello, everyone. I r ecently had one of the most informative w eeks in Port St. Lucie last w eek when two events took place that dealt with educating others about abuse. The first took place at the Po rt S t. Lucie City Hall on Mar ch 28, as I watched Laur en Book walk to promote physical and sexual abuse awareness. This is the third year the community has seen her. Ms. Book does an annual W alk in My Shoes, where she travels from Key West to T allahassee, finishing with a r ally at the state capital. S he not only promotes awareness for child abuse, she is also working on expanding the states kindergarten abuse prevention curriculum to include grades up to the fifth grade, and include Internet safety and bullying. B ullying was also a topic the Port St. Lucie Police D epartment addressed during an informational family forum on March 28. This forum was directed at the students in Port St. L ucie, and helps them learn new ways to discourage bullying and how to support other students who are bullied. It s good to know that local government has stepped up to address these concerns, and shown their support in helping the community with these difficult topics.

One of the things that many people are surprised to learn is that even when nothing is happening, their computer is still extremely busy just keeping things alive. I dont know how many times I have been discussing something with a person as their machine sits idle when, all of a sudden, chug chug chug, the hard drive starts working furiously. Or even more surprising, the machine suddenly crashes, even though no one was at the wheel. Invariably they look at me and ask, Why did it just do that? S ometimes people have a hard time accepting that even though they are not pushing the mouse, typing away or actively doing something, their machine is not resting. The reality is that even when y our computer appears inactive, it is still very busy with general housekeeping. There are tasks like monitoring the keyboard for input, painting the image on the display (dozens of times per second) or watching to see if the mouse moves. The list of chores goes on. Seriously, the list goes on and on and on! The tasks that your computer is constantly performing in the background are necessary for the function of the computer and are controlled, for the most part, by the operating system W indows. Just because we, the users, arent giving the computer any input or are not paying attention to whats going on the display does not mean that the computer gets to take a break until we come back. Nope. As long as there is power to the machine and its turned on, your computer is very busy indeed. U nderstanding that your computer is busy doing something all the time can help ease the fear that something is wrong. I know that when a computer user spends a small fortune on a new machine, it can be pretty disconcerting when, for no apparent reason, their new machine starts chugging and groaning. M any people are also surprised to find out just how much brain power it takes for their computer to move the mouse. People dont realize that even something as simple or basic as moving the mouse pointer takes so much of the computers resources. Often I will see someone move their mouse in big swirls just to make sure the machine is working not r ealizing that moving the mouse will actually distract the computer, drawing its attention away from the task at hand. Lets see just how much brainpower it takes your machine to move your mouse. Click the task bar with the right mouse button and then click Task Manager.

Move your mouse in big arcs about the screen. You can see how hard the computer has to work just to move the mouse. Now, next time your machine is busy and you wonder if your machine has crashed, you may be tempted to test it by swirling the mouse around. Remember the performance monitor and r esist the urge. If your machine was close to crashing, swirling the mouse can, and often does, push it over the edge and actually cause the crash you we re trying to avoid.

What immigration reform is really aboutLet's be perfectly clear. "Comprehensive Immigration R eform, or more accurately, Amnesty for Illegal Aliens," is about one thing and one thing only: votes. Any person in government who says anything, and I mean anything, different is lying. Amnesty is here again (after being roundly trounced by We, the People on multiple occasions) because the Democrats want votes to get in and keep themselves in power in our government at all levels, local, state, and federal. It's clearly not about what's best for the country and its citizens or else Amnesty wouldn't even be discussed for one second. Liberal Sanctuary Cities across the country are controlled by Democrats. Now, even some R epublicans are willing to accept Amnesty because they lost at the polls in the last election. It's all about votes and these people will destroy the country to get them. Anyone who votes for Amnesty should be tried for treason. At the very least they must be targeted for defeat at the polls and kicked out of government for abject failure of their duties to the people who elected them, you know, American Citizens.Obamaism?Ev eryday living is made up of choices. For every negative there is a positive. Being gay is one of them. I believe gays should have the same rights all Americans enjoy as to work, education, achievement, etc. We are not to judge, but are to leave all judging to God. The big decision in Congress now is whether to enact Gay Marriage into law along with many other Godless and unconstitutional trappings liberals are shoving down our throats. Gay's make their own choices, but same sex marriages must not be "Enacted into Law." We can expect the loss of many blessings if this law is passed. Haven't we lost enough? Christianity, the Old and New Testaments, coincides with much history. Both agree the reason great nations fell is exactly where we are today. TV sitcoms today would be considered pornography fifty years ago. Blasphemy, homosexuality (as being funny, the norm, or family orientated). Audiences laughing like crazy at sexual situations and corny sexual jokes. Certain 'Reality' programs, men choosing women, women choosing men, totally sexual, are not entertaining, funny, nor are they intelligent. Mothers entering five year old girls into beauty contests made up to look 21. Kids have no childhood. All this has slipped slowly and silently into our lives and the lives of our kids. How many know the No. 1 cause of death in children in America? The answer is, "Parents." Being a young country we have come a long way as to choices, decisions and the lack of blessings. So, where do we stand today? We have "Obamaism" with his sadistic and satanic decisions (choices) on the table, while our country is failing fast. O ur oceans are polluted with oil, garbage, dead animals washing up on shore. The coral reefs of Florida are infected in some areas. Only one percent of water on earth is fit for human and animal consumption. Certain fish are extinct. How many of a certain age have ever known an asteroid to slam into this earth as of late or tsunami's? Devastating winter and summer storms and draught bombarding the U. S. causing food loss and prices to soar. The horrible abuse of children and crime fill our neighborhoods. Obama is not interested in these problems and has never put America first. O ur so-called leader will raise taxes of 'One Trillion Dollars' ov er the next 10 years. How much is that in one year? That's insane! Will the "Working Middle Class" be able to pay this? In ten years there would be no jobs and the entire population would be on welfare. What welfare? Cutting from our Defense and Law Enforcement (the best the world has ever known), is insane. Pensions are being taken away from the people who paid 'into' it all their working lives. Doctors are leaving their profession or retiring early because of "Obamacare". Where and how are all these millions and millions of immigrants expected to go? Most cannot speak English, won't find jobs (there aren't any), or pay taxes. Taking so much away from certain people and giving so much to others will meet in a huge crash. What part of this does 'ignorance' not understand? I am fed up with Obamaism, wimpy Republicans and D emocrats who will not staunchly fight him. Others have shed much blood, given their lives for many years to fight dictators all over the world. Americans are still dying and shedding blood for the freedom of this country. Lawmakers and all Americans must stand tall, act like men and women of God, and make the right decisions regarding all negative 'choices' for the good of all.Stop tossing trashEv ery day my dogs and I walk or bike ride Fleming Grant Rd. between Micco Rd. and the railroad tracks. Daily, there is new evidence of beer alcoholics, rum drinkers and cancer stick smokers throwing their garbage on the side of the road, rather than putting their cans of Bud, Bush, etc. bottles, cigarette packages in a receptacle at the local Cumberland Farms, W inn-Dixie store or even the re-cycle or garbage can at home. Obviously these people are lacking in education, good manners and a strong moral upbringing, never learning not to litter. Y ou cant call these people smart. Why? Read the following: One woman throws her empty cigarette boxes out the window. She put her credit card in the cellophane alongside the box. When spotted alongside the road, it was taken to the issuing Wells Fargo bank, where everyone had a good laugh. Another individual who also would fail a Mensa screening likes to put his Bud cans, Camel cigarettes boxes and scratch tickets in plastic bags and toss the alongside the road. This person couldnt even read his winning scratch ticket for $50.00. Thank you Mr. Trash throwing out that bag of garbage cost you and made me a winner. One day I noticed an empty McDonald bag, drink container and wrappers someone threw out the window onto Fleming Grant Rd. there was a $1.00 dollar bill laying alongside the bag. Upon further investigation inside the bag was a $10.00 bill more ones and small change. This highly uneducated person chucked the balance of their purchase in the bag and forgot. It is doubtful the persons who litter our road can or ever will r ead this rant, but perhaps when you read this, you might recognize someone you know that would benefit from this story and in telling or repeating it, you just might wake up the trash who are throwing garbage on Fleming Grant Road.Close Video Arcades?Dont our politicians have anything better to do than interfere with a persons right to enjoy and entertain themselves as they wish, as long as no harm is done to others. Well, heres my suggestion. If they are so concerned about video gaming, lets shut them down and convert them into Strip Clubs. That doesnt seem to be on anyones radar now. Just think of the benefits. Instead of a few game repair clerks, we would employ hundreds of ladies in the workforce, increasing the tax base. And those folks that visit the arcades? Im sure they will involve themselves in this new form of entertainment. B ut what about those seniors? Not a problem, after a visit to the clubs, theyll go back to their community. Its about time we gave the Villages a run for their money in the world of STDs. Hey, that would probably force the Health Department to reopen more clinics, employing more people. Personally, I dont see a down side Its a win-win situation. 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. In the four years before I took office, Florida lost more than 825,000 jobs, unemployment more than tripled from 3.5 percent to 11.1 percent, and state debt increased by $5.2 billion. T oday, our businesses have created more than 280,000 new private sector jobs, Floridas unemployment rate has dropped below the national average to 7.8 percent, we have paid down state debt by $2 billion; and we are not stopping there. We cut taxes, eliminated thousands of regulations on job creators, and invested in education. Its working. B ecause we made the hard choices over the last two y ears, we are able to make the smart choices to keep our economy growing this year. We have a projected budget surplus for the first time in six y ears. Our challenges are different in this budget, but our goal is absolutely the same: economic growth and job creation. This year, we have two priorities to keep our economy growing: first, remove the sales tax on manufacturing equipment to create more manufacturing jobs, and second, invest in our teachers by providing them a welldeserved pay raise. Our Florida Families First Budget supports these priorities while maintaining substantial r eserves. This is responsible stewardship of taxpayer money. Why are we so focused on creating jobs and improving education? Why do we focus on putting Florida Families F irst in our budget? Because every Florida family wants not just to dream, but to have the opportunity to make those dreams come true. We must invest in our education system, support our teachers and cut taxes to help create more jobs. Our work to cut spending and live within our means over the last two years has allowed us to once again invest in education. Student learning is important to the economy because the workers of tomorrow are in Florida classrooms today. The single most important factor in student learning is the quality of teaching. That is why we eliminated teacher tenure, and signed performance pay into law. It will take effect in 2014. Floridas education system is making tremendous progress, due in large part to our great teachers and many in the Legislature. Our students and teachers were recently ranked sixth for educational quality; and our fourth-graders scored among the highest in the world on a recent reading evaluation. The best way we can build on this progress is to reward our hard-working teachers with a $2,500 pay raise. Some say they are afraid that giving r aises to all teachers may mean that a teacher doing a bad job gets rewarded. But, thanks to our work, we are now in a better position than ever before to reward good teachers and move bad teachers out of the classroom. We dont want a war on teachers; we want a war on failure. An investment in Florida teachers is an investment in Floridas future because teachers change lives. That is why our budget increases K-12 education funding by more than $1.2 billion. This billion dollar commitment builds on our billion dollar investment in K12 education last year and our total education investment in state funding for K-12 schools this year is the highest state funding level in Florida history This represents an increase of more than $400 in per student funding over the current fiscal year. Getting a great education helps dreams come true and those dreams are almost always jobs. That is why our formula for success focuses on education and jobs. As long as even one Florida family needs a job, our work is not done. That is why we are committed to removing the sales tax on manufacturing equipment. Florida is one of only a few states with this tax, and we lag behind the nation in per capita manufacturing jobs. Manufacturing has a major impact on our economy because every manufacturing job supports two to three other jobs in our state. I believe Florida will be the number one place in the world for job creation, the number one place in the world to get a great education and the number one place in the world where families can afford to live. Everything we have done together over the last two years has been geared toward economic growth. Its working.Investing in jobs and education works GOVERNORRICK S COTT Phone (772) 465-5656 Fax (772) 465-5301Classified (772) 465-5551 Rants & Raves (772) 465-5504Circulation Inquiries 1 -866-913-6397 circulation@hometownnewsol.comPORTST.LUCIEV oted # 1 Community Newspaper in America in 2005, 2006, 2007.

Earl Stewart is the owner and general manager of Earl Ste wart Toyota in North P alm Beach.The dealership is located at 1215 N.Federal H ighway in Lake Park.Contact him at www.earlstewarttoyota.com,call (561) 358-1474,fax (561) 658-0746 or email earl@estoyota.com. L isten to him on Seaview AM 960,FM 95.9 and FM 106.9, which can be streamed at www.SeaviewRadio.com every Saturday morning between 9 a.m.and 10 a.m.This column originally r an in October of 2006 and I thought the timing was very appropriate to run this column again. The current President of the S enate at that time, Ken Pr uitt, had formed a senate investigation committee to investigate the dealer fee and send the results to the F lorida legislature. In a nutshell, the recommendation was that the legislature ban or at least cap dealer fees as they have in other states. If you want to r ead the entire text of the S enates recommendation, y ou can click on www.EarlS tewart.com and then Results of Florida Senate D ealer Fee Investigation. By the way, dealer fees are just as rampant as they were in 2006 and dealers are actually increasing the amount they charge. You can pick up a copy of almost any newspaper and find illegal ads by dealers who do not include their dealer fees in their advertised prices. Those who do comply with the law, include the price in just one car, and disclose it covertly by an alpha-numeric code, which means this stock number is the only one available that price. A customer would come in for the advertised car and it has already been sold but they have another one just like it. What they dont tell you is that their dealer fee can now legally be added to advertised price because it isnt the same car that was advertised. D ear fellow Florida car dealer, I started in the retail car business in 1968, about 44 y ears ago, and I have seen a lot of changes in the way we dealers sell cars and the expectations of our customers. My r emarks in this column are made sincerely and with a positive intent toward y ou and your customers. I am not trying to tell you how to run your business; I am suggesting a change that will reward both you and y our customers. Vir tually every car dealer in Florida adds a charge to the price of the cars he sells, var iously referred to as a dealer fee, documentary fee or dealer prep fee. This extra charge is printed on your buyers orders and is programmed into your computers. It has been made illegal in many states, including California. You charge this fee to every customer and it ranges from a few hundred dollars to nearly a thousand. F lorida law requires that, if you charge a dealer fee to any customer, you must charge all customers. It also r equires that you disclose in writing on the buyers order that this charge represents profit to the dealer. Florida law also requires that you include this fee in all advertised prices. You dont always do this, and you get around the law by limiting the number of advertised vehicles as few as one. The argument that I hear from most car dealers, when I raise this issue, is that the dealer fee is fully disclosed to the buyer on his buyers order. But, most car buyers are totally unaware that they are paying this. Who reads all of the voluminous paperwork associated with buying a car? The few who notice it assume it is an official fee like state sales tax or license and registration fee. Those few astute buyers who do question the fee are told that y our dealership must charge this fee on every car, which would not be true if you we re to make the decision to not charge the dealer fee to anyone. These astute buyers are also told that all other car dealers charge similar fees. This is almost true, but, as you know, my dealership does not. The reason you charge this fee is simply to increase the cost of the car and your profit in such a manner that it is not noticed by your customer. This is just plain wrong. Dealers will admit this to me in private conversations and some will admit that they have considered eliminating the fee as I have, but are afraid of the drastic effect to their bottom line. By being able to count on an extra $895 in profit that the customer is not aware of or believes is an official fee, y ou can actually quote a price below cost and end up making a profit. Or, if the price you quote the customer does pay you a nice profit, you can increase that profit by several hundred dollars. This extra, unseen profit is even better for you because you dont pay your salesmen a commission on it. Thats being unfair to your employees as well as your customers. When the rare, astute buyer objects to the dealer fee, the law permits y ou to decrease the quoted price of the car by the amount of the dealer fee. This would have the same net effect of removing it. The salesman often wont permit this because he will lose his commission (typically 25 percent) on the decrease in his commissionable gross profit. If you dont know me, I should tell you that I dont profess to be some holier than thou car dealer who was always perfect. Although I never did anything illegal, when I look at some of my advertising and sales tactics 20+ years ago and more, I am not always proud. But, I have evolved as my customers have evolved. My customers expectations, level of education, and sophistication are much higher today. Your customers are no different. As I began treating my customers and employees better, I discovered that they began treating me better. Ye s, I used to charge a dealer fee ($495), and when I stopped charging it a few y ears ago, it was scary. But I did it because I could no longer, in good conscience, mislead my customers. Just because everybody else was doing the same thing did not make it right. Now here is the good news.

TREASURE COAST The University of Florida's Tr easure Coast Gator Club will hold the sixth annual Tr easure Coast Gator Toast on May 8, at 5:30 p.m., at the M oorings Club in Vero B each. This year's event will prove to be another exciting evening to celebrate the G ator Nation, featuring scholarship awards to local students and UF Athletic Dir ector, Jeremy Foley as keynote speaker. Mr. Foley has handled virtually every aspect of UF's $96 million athletic program during his administrative career, rising from a ticket intern in 1976, and now, in his 21st year as athletic director. He is widely recognized for moving UF Athletics into the upper echelon of college sports, but is also known for being equally committed to student-athlete success in the classr oom, said Anthony Guettler, Treasure Coast Gator Club president. "This is going to be an evening to remember," Mr. G uettler said. "Not only is Jer emy Foley a great role model for our scholarship r ecipients, but he will give us an incredible perspective on the condition and future of UF sports. Everyone is excited and honored to welcome Mr. Foley to the Treasure Coast." In addition to Foley's keynote address, the Club will present more than $25,000 in scholarships to 18 students from Indian River and St. Lucie County who will attend UF in Gainesville or the UF Indian River R esearch and Education C enter in Fort Pierce in the fall. The evening will also include a sit-down dinner, one-of-a-kind silent auction items and vendors selling unique Gator gear. The Treasure Coast Gator T oast, is the signature event of the Treasure Coast Gator Club, which has awarded ov er $100,000 in scholarships to local UF students since 2007. Mr. Guettler said the Club's scholarship program is different from others because it is open to all students from Indian River or St. Lucie County who are pursuing an undergraduate degree from UF, not just graduating high school seniors. "With our program, we want to make sure that great students, who need a little help to complete their education, have the support they need," Mr. Guettler said. "Our scholarships are very helpful for older students pursuing a bachelor's degree, who have more limited options for applying for scholarship support." The Gator Toast is the major fundraising event for the scholarship program. O ther sources of funding are named scholarships which this year include the Arthur and Marian Block Endowment Fund, the Br yan Schirard Memorial F und, the Elizabeth F. Addison Memorial Scholarship, the Clint S. Malone Memorial Scholarship, the Mark and R obbie Pierce for the Hardee Family Foundation Scholarship, and a scholarship in honor of Ray and B eth Smith given by Trey S mith. The Club also hosts a var iety of fundraising events throughout the year. The Treasure Coast Gator Club is a 501(c)3 organization governed by a local board of directors that celebrates UF and provides networking opportunities for local alumni and UF fans alike. The Club's core mission is to raise money to provide scholarships for I ndian River and St. Lucie C ounty students. F or more information, visit www.tcgatorclub.org.

LUCIE For some, celebrating who y ou are is easy. There are Ir ish Festivals, Renaissance Fairs, Star Trek C onventions and tattoo expos. But, for a growing segment of the community, celebrations havent always been easy or accepted. Thats why this y ears Treasure Coast Pr ideFest, which celebrates gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual members of the community, and its board members are overwhelmed with the communitys support. O ver the past few y ears, it seems interest in Pr ide of the Treasure C oast, and our efforts to help the community while putting on a great event, has increased, said Cory Pfister, president, Treasure Coast Pr ide. We're a small board of officers and directors who work yearr ound to collect donations from the community. Every dollar that is brought in to the organization is put right back into supporting organizations like Parents, F amily and Friends of Lesbians and Gays of Ve ro Beach, Project R esponse, St. Lucie Coun ty on Aging, and ultimately PrideFest. Pr ideFest welcomes many vendors, from companies and charitable organizations, to corporate sponsors and food and craft vendors. This y ear, there will be many new vendors, along with plenty of returning ones. I think over the years the community has seen and recognizes our efforts and the vision we have for the Pride organization, Mr. Pfister said. This coming year, the board of Pride of the Tr easure Coast would like to focus on bringing new members, volunteers and committee members on board to help put on an amazing event, have fun and serve the community. Throughout the year Pr ide of the Treasure C oast puts on several events to help raise donations for PrideFest. The most successful and most talked about event is Dining with the Stars; a dinner and celebrity illusion event performed by entertainers from across the state. This years sponsors include Treasure Coast Lexus and Treasure Coast Toy ota, REBAR nightclub, home of the official afterparty, and Bottom's Up Bever age. There will be plenty of entertainment, including: DJ Joshua Atom, Kelli R andell; Dominique Taylor; Shelita Taylor; Miss Tr easure Coast Continental Elite, Trish Stevens; Dr agon Blade Taylor, R eggie B. Coxworthy and F amily; Roxxxy Andrews, current contestant on RuP aul's Drag Race; S pikey Van Dykey; Palm Be ach Makos cheerleaders; Rafael Gomez, with C enter Stage Dance Production; Category 5 & the S torm Horns; and a few more surprises. P rideFest will take place from noon to 9 p.m. A pril 7 at the Port St. Lu cie Civic Center.For more information,visit www.prideofthetreasurecoast.org.Rejoicing with dance W ing fest returns to city centerPORT ST. LUCIE Those who consider chicken wings as a major food group can rejoice at the South F lorida Wingfest on April 6. Fr om hot and spicy to tangy raspberry, the most adventurous palates will be tempted by vendors who are making it top priority to win the one of the annual chicken wing titles. W e have lots of restaur ants involved this year, said John Mangan of All in F un. Last years winner, Chinese Thai To Go, is in the competition again, but theyve got some competition. Itll be great to see who wins this year. A wards for Peoples Choice, Best Wing in South F lorida, Most Creative, and Hottest are up for grabs. The event, which will take place from noon to 9:30 p .m. at the Martin Health S ystem Village Square at the Po rt S t. Lucie Civic Center, will also include a large entertainment area for children that will include bounce houses and slides and other kid activities. Entrance into the Kid Zone is $5 and is good for all day. The kids will have a large play area and for $5 they can go in and out as much as they want, he said. Itll give them a place to run off some energy. F or $20, visitors can purchase a ticket that lets them taste a wing from each of the contestants. Judges will decide on the winners, who will be announced at 7 p.m. This years event will also feature live music, a car show, and a seating area for guests who want to relax after sampling the delicious wings. The event is bigger than last years, Mr. Mangan said. Its a great time. Ev erybody should check it out and come eat some wings.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY The Indian River State C ollege Hallstrom Planetarium will present the galactic show, The Planets. In a recorded narration by K ate Mulgrew (Captain K athryn Janeway of Star Tr ek: Voyager), Ms. Mulgrew takes the audience on a grand tour of the solar system and visits to Earth's neighboring worlds. S ee a comet collide with J upiter, fly along the Mar iner Valley, the Grand C anyon of Mars and stand at the edge of the 10-mile-high ice cliffs of Uranus' moon, Mir anda. Travel to far-flung P luto and out to the distant r ealms of other solar systems in this exciting show. The Planets will be presented on April 5 and 6, Apr il 19 and 20, May 17 and 18, and June 14 and 15. P lanetarium show times are Fr iday evenings at 7 and 8 p .m. and Saturday afternoons at 1 and 2 p.m. Tickets are $3 each and may be purchased at the IRSC Box Office at the McAlpin Fine Arts Center or by calling (800) 220-9915 with VISA, D iscover, American Express, or MasterCard or visit www.irsc.edu. P lanetarium shows are recommended for adults and for children over the age of four. The Hallstrom planetarium's temperature is maintained at 72 degrees and visitors may want to bring a light jacket or sweater. The first day of the fourth month of every y ear is a time when strange happenings occur, and this year is no exception. At Bushwood Golf and C ountry Club in Farfaraway, N ew York, sides have been taken with regard to the club's lone mime member. Ye s, I said mime. Gerard Par doo is a student of the late, great Marcel Marceau and a long-standing member at Bushwood. The problem seems to be in that the other members at this prestigious club no longer wish to see Mr. Pardoo and his antics. I t started a couple years back when he petitioned the club to have a member/mime tournament, said Club President J oe Knowitall. We have traditionally had a member/guest, but he wished to expand it to have mimes playing with every member. That was not acceptable to the rest of our membership. Now, in court papers filed on the first of this month, the club is taking action to expel Mr. Pardoo and revoke his membership. The documents filed cite that he is a distraction when playing, that he never speaks to anyone and that his makeup scares the children of other club members. Mr. Pardoo's response, sent through his attorney, states, I have never been anything but the perfect member. Never have I voiced my opinions out loud. When I play I always hear the female members gossiping and interrupting the quiet others need to hit their shots. I do no such thing. I'm always quiet and r espectful. B ushwood's members offer a slightly different version. H e used to be fun to play with, but now he is trying too hard, said one member who asked to not to be identified. My daughter loved him when she was r eally small. Now, when he plays in the summer and his makeup runs from sweating in the heat, he looks very scary. He made my daughter cry the last time she saw him. She calls him 'the scary clown. Mr. Pardoo's attorney r esponded, A clown? Ser iously? This just goes to show you the lack of understanding these people have for my client. A mime is nothing like a clown. A mime is a true artist, not a birthday party sideshow! How ever, the complaints are coming in from more than just one member. O ur members are complaining that his act is w earing thin, Mr. Knowitall continued. Every time after hitting his tee shot he will not leave the tee box without going through the whole 'I'm stuck in an invisible box' routine. He then makes someone from the group go to his cart, r emove the key and come unlock the invisible door so that he can leave the tee box. It's funny on the first hole, but gets quite old about the third time. O ther complaints about Mr. Pardoo include having to use an imaginary rope to pull himself out of bunkers. M embers say that he always r equires one or more players in his group to help pull on the rope to get him out of the trap. The court documents also state that Mr. Pardoo has become a hazard on the course. H e never yells 'Fore!' when he hits a wayward shot, states the club's champion, Dave Shooter. I was hit once by one of his many poor drives and he said nothing. He just stood there holding up four fingers and shrugged his shoulders. H e also holds up play, said another member. If his putt just misses and stops within an inch or two from going in, he will drop to the ground and use some sort of pantomime to get the ball to go in the hole. He pretends to pull on a string that's attached to the ball, or to use an imaginary pool cue to knock the ball in. He thinks it's darn funny that w e're waiting to putt and he's going through this garbage. Soon I'm going to toss him in one of the lakes. Mr. Pardoo's written r esponse to these accusations was simple. I'm using mime telepathy. It's like mental telepathy, but better (smiley face). As for throwing me in a lake, I'm not scared, I will just put myself in an airtight bubble and stroll out of the lake. B esides, with all the balls these numbskulls hit into the water, it can't be very deep. So the sides have been drawn in what could be a long and very nasty battle between the members at B ushwood. I'm unsure who I would side with, but I'm glad I don't have to be on the jury should it get that far. Stay tuned as I continue to watch this monumental case unfold.

With everybody getting his or her yards ready for spring, the one thing everybody wants is color. C olor is one of the main elements that make your yard stand out. One of the most practical ways is through the use of roses. R oses are beautiful flowers that symbolize love and friendship. I magine yourself entertaining your friends in a lovely alcove surrounded by colorful flowers. Roses are relatively easy to grow and are a great choice because they will often grow where other flowers wont because of Floridas intense summer sun. R oses can be successfully planted in either containers or in the ground. In either case, the plants should be in welldrained soil in a sunny location. If you plant your treasures in the ground, be sure the soil drains well. Dig a hole about 15 18 inches wide and eighteen inches deep. Put a layer of gravel on the bottom of the hole. This is to allow drainage so water drains away from the root system. The same would apply if you plant y our roses in a container. The next step is to prepare the soil you are going to use to plant your r oses. You should use a mix of a good quality potting soil with around half the mixture composed of organic matter such as mulch or peat. You can also use some bone meal with your soil mixture. Now, its finally time to plant your prize. Carefully r emove the plant from its original container. Place the plant in your prepared hole so the top of soil layer on the plant is the same level as the surrounding soil. Fill the gap underneath the plant with your prepared soil mixture. Now, fill the gaps around the remaining parts of the plant and pack down lightly. You are now ready to water in your newly planted rose. Y ou finally have your r oses planted and they are bursting with color, now y ou need to do some periodic maintenance to maintain that beauty. S ince we live in such a humid climate, certain diseases such as black powdery mildew and black spot can both be a common problem. Both diseases are much easier to control if you prevent them happening in the first place. Once established, both are very difficult to get rid of. Although there are many products on the market that are used for disease control on roses, Orthenex r eigns as the king. The product controls not only diseases, but also controls insect infestation as well. If you are interested in an all-natural cure for fungus, how about baking soda? Plain ordinary baking soda added at the r ate of three teaspoons per gallon of water. You then can add a small amount of mild dish detergent to the mix to act as a spreader sticker. This will work as a preventive measure, but will not work well if an infection is present. Be sure not to make your mix too strong as damage to y our roses could result. W ith all the remedies that we have at our disposal for controlling r ose problems, probably the best way is prevention. One way is to avoid watering late in the day so the leaves of the plant do not stay wet all night. Also it is important to have good soil drainage. R oses are heavy feeders and like a good supply of food. Roses should be fed at least once a month. You can use a good quality commercial food or you can use your own mix, which should consist of one cup of bone meal, one cup cottonseed meal, onehalf cup blood meal, onehalf cup fishmeal and onehalf cup Epsom salts. You can spread this mix around each plant and then water in. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.
