TREASURE COAST Most of the time, children on the Autism spectrum are misunderstood. There's never enough time, resources or patience to give these special children the quality of care they deserve. They sometimes get lost in the shuffle between special education classes and mainstream classr ooms. How ever, a newly formed nonprofit housed in Jensen Beach is giving these children an outlet. Arts for Autism of the Treasure Coast, founded by Rachel S elph of Port St. L ucie, offers art classes as a way for Au tistic children to express themselves. Each of the classes, which are held several times throughout the w eek, are taught by a group of trained volunteers. The children are encouraged to express themselves with paint, glitter and glue and at the end of each session, have a product to be proud of. Children on the Autism spectrum are usually very visual," Ms. S elph said. "We have children who ra nge from very high functioning to some who don't speak at all. Each one are paired with a volunteered and helped to express the ideas that are living in their heads." The organization has specialized ways to get each child engaged in the activities. Each participant, depending on their level of functioning, absorbs the instructions and creates works of art that are then placed on the walls of the facility. "W e let the children hang their paintings wherever they want to," Ms. Selph said. "Some of them are hanging upside down and some are crooked, but it's all part of how the students express themselves." S ome of the works of art will be framed and sold at an upcoming fundraiser. "W e are trying to raise money for art supplies and for generally keeping the nonprofit afloat. There's no paid staff, and all of the art instructors are here voluntarily because they either have a child on the Autism spectrum or because they love the idea of helping these wonderful children." Pa r ents who bring their child to the art classes have an opportunity to network and talk about ideas that have helped with dealing with the sometimes frustrating life with an autistic child. "I t can be trying," said Ms. Selph, whose daughter was diagnosed with Autism. "It can be hard on the parent and the child, so whenever there's a chance to talk to someone who knows what you're going through and who you can bounce ideas off, it helps. There is a waiting list for children to participate in the class. However, if there are more volunteers and more art supplies, more children will be able to benefit from the program. Ar t supplies can be dropped off every Saturday to Arts for Autism of the Treasure Coast,located at 2317 N.W.Federal Highway,in Jensen B each.For more information,call (772) 260-6941.Art classes bring out creative side of those with Autism 063479 Find out if dealer holdbacks are really holdups A local artist is living out his dream of creating art for comic books ENTERTAINMENTB1 EARL STEWARTA7 COMIC B OOK ART HOLD BACKS?

LUCIE COUNTY B idders from around the world will soon be able to purchase foreclosed properties in St. Lucie County. Starting Sept. 3, the St. Lucie C ounty Clerk's office will begin conducting foreclosure sales online. The new process will allow bidders to submit deposits electronically and view upcoming auctions, bidding history, auction results and more. The interactive site will also allow users to easily r esearch properties, case details, and legal descriptions without having to search through the court records database. The new sales format will make it easier to research and bid on properties from the convenience of your home or office," said Joseph E. Smith, S t. Lucie County Clerk of the Circuit Court. "The process will be more transparent, accessible, and efficient." By switching from in-person to online foreclosure auctions, Mr. Smith expects to save taxpayers an estimated $30,000 in operating costs annually. The added efficiency will allow his staff to dedicate more time toward processing the county's 7,800 properties currently in foreclosure. The online sales compliment the new electronic filing of civil cases and documents, which has been increasing processing of many cases and is expected to save $100,000 in operating and printing costs annually. ClerkAuction, the online system currently operating the Clerk's tax deed sales, will also manage the foreclosure auctions. On Aug. 5, foreclosure auctions will start being posted on the site, https://stlucie.clerkauction.cF or Hometown News NewsFP@hometownnewsol.comSee AUCTIONS, A2"The new sales format will make it easier to research and bid on properties from the convenience of your home or office."Joseph E.

Hillmoor Dr., Ste. 404 W eston-based Florida C ommunity Bank is making the transition from a holding company for the assets of failed banks to one of the state's largest banking operations. FCB recently completed its first negotiated acquisition, buying Great Florida B ank of Coral Gables. Based on Great Florida's most r ecent report of outstanding shares of common stock, the deal is valued at about $42.5 million with FCB paying $2.34 for each share. FCB, a subsidiary of Bond St r eet Holdings, was formed in 2009 and used to maintain the assets of failed banks in cooperation with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Great Florida also was in shaky condition, but FCB already was involved in turning it around, FCB President Kent Ellert said in a telephone interview. "Based on the pricing, we feel OK about the assets of Great Florida." The combined operations put FCB as the fourth largest bank based in Florida with assets of $4.4 billion and 67 offices along both F lorida coasts. Mr. Ellert doesn't expect any of the offices will close. "V ery little overlapped between our two operations," he said. FCB is now poised to become a statewide bank, something Florida hasn't had with a state-based bank in several years. It will need to move into the Jacksonville, Panhandle, Tallahassee and Tampa Bay markets to do it. In the news release announcing the deal, Mr. Ellert said, "The transaction with Great Florida Bank is truly a game changer' for our Company as we have been eager to expand our presence in Miami, Florida's largest metro market. We are a Florida-based, F lorida-focused company and the merger with Great F lorida Bank adds significant scale to our brand and will result in meaningful synergies that will benefit customers and communities of both institutions. "C onsistent with our previously completed eight successful acquisitions, this merger will significantly enhance our Florida footprint and will provide a foundation for us to augment our commercial lending team to further generate organic growth," he said. M. Mehdi Ghomeshi, Pr esident of Great Florida B ank, said in the news re lease, "This merger is a win for our stockholders, customers and banking franchise. This business combination significantly enhances our combined abilities to be one of the financially strongest and most competitive community banking organizations in Florida. We are confident that this merger is a highly attractive strategic alignment for all of our constituents." The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of the fourth quarter of 2013, subject to customary conditions, including r eceipt of regulatory approvals and the approval of Great Florida stockholders.

PORT ST. LUCIE The G uardian Angels, an organization fairly well known on the Treasure Coast for their volunteer team of citizen crime-fighters, is expanding their territory. Long recognized in 200 U.S. cities and 14 countries around the world, the G uardian Angels have been protecting the Treasure C oast since 2004 and are expanding their watchful eye farther into Martin C ounty. Thirty-four years ago it started with a man saddened by the crime-riddled deterioration of his beloved Br onx neighborhood. He decided to take matters into his own hands and his attempts at deterring crime became a nation-wide endeavor. Closer to home in 1989, S teve Horton, now chapter leader for the Treasure C oast, saw an ad on television for the Guardian Angels and immediately knew it was what he was meant to do. "I want to make a difference it's just in my blood. This was an opportunity to do that in a phenomenal way," Mr. Horton said. C ommercial cleaner by day, Mr. Horton spends his spare time with a group of eight other individuals patrolling neighborhoods and intimidating would-be criminals in order to reduce crime. "W e' re here to help the community," Mr. Horton said. They do so with intensive training, by developing a pre-determined course of action, and working hand in hand with local law enforcement, who appreciate their contribution. Their goal is to be present in communities prone to violence and crime to ease the minds of peaceful residents and encourage shady characters to stay away. "W e' re a fantastic deterr ent," Mr. Horton said. "W e' re masters of intimidation." The humanitarian crime fighters capped with their signature red berets are not about violence or vigilantism, but about making a difference and being prepared. They strive to be the eyes and ears of local law enforcement and have never had to resort to using physical force during incidents on the Treasure Coast. What we do works," Mr. Ho r ton said. "We stop a lot of crime before it happens." Their main goal is prevention, knowing that their mere presence helps keep unlawful activity at bay, so they teach neighborhoods how to run watch programs and patrol questionable areas. B ut they are also active participants, helping locate missing teens last fall and striving to find a man who attempted to abduct a woman in Stuart this summer. Mr. Horton said the G uardian Angels are always open to new recruits, men and women, who want to make a difference in their neighborhoods and give local residents the peace of mind the deserve.

Protesters won't gain any respectI drove around and saw people protesting the Zimmerman verdict. I wonder how many of them actually know all of the details. Actually, I'm guessing there's only two who do. And one's dead and one's life will never be the same. J ustified or not, two lives have been lost. I see young men jumping around on street corners in the middle of summer, with hoodies on, sweating to death trying to make a point about a case I'm willing to bet they know nothing about. One young man was screaming obscenities to passersby, while grabbing his crotch, and holding a sign that read "Justice and Peace for Travon." (Yes, Trayvon was spelled incorrectly. I just have to ask myself just how much peace this young man wanted. What kind of justice does he want? Did he follow the trial? Did he do his own r esearch? Or was he being a follower and using this forum as a place to act the fool? Now, before everyone jumps on my case, I'm from the hood.' I'm not new to the racism that exists; however, I know that we have to present ourselves in a different light to be seen in a different light. J umping around with your pants around your thighs, grabbing your crotch and cussing out white drivers will never gain you any respect.W elfare recipients live high on the hog'Fr om the comments I get from a lot of people, they are sick of the people in this city on welfare, living other people's money and living high on the hog. People on welfare are able to purchase the same things the common working person is able to purchase. So here's the reasons they have kids, receive a payment for each one, get into sec 8 housing, and get into all the government subsidized programs they can so they won't have to work. Wow, no wonder they wanted Obama in as president. They don't worry about not getting 40 hours a week for work. They spend more time figuring out how to get stuff for free. By the way, Obamacare,' as it's called, is not a government paid program that money comes from the tax payers, and for the liberal democrats who voted for it before a new congress came to power, they did that just to look good for the people who have the only inclination to live off the government welfare system. Quit having kids! In today's economy, seeing a mother with two or three kids especially in Fort Pierce, there's no way she's got any career going to afford those kids. Sorry people, but welfare is not a career opportunity. H opefully someday welfare will be eliminated and these people will quit breeding just for that government welfare check. To the welfare ranter'I sincerely don't understand how such ignorance still exists. The writer, who constantly complains about people on welfare, (I've dubbed him the welfare ranter'), has way too much time on his or her hands. I know it's only one person writing those rants because the level of ignorance is the same throughout all of them. If you have such a problem with the residents of Fort Pierce, MOVE! Quit whining about welfare and people in government housing. It is what it is. There's always been those less-fortunate, those who still work hard and can't get ahead, those who don't try to better themselves and those who constantly complain about all of them. You are the cancer that needs eradicating. Move to the suburbs, learn how to write effectively, become an activist, but please, shut your stupid mouth up about the city of Fort Pierce and its residents. Y ou get on my last nerve. A view on the Zimmerman caseF or the past one and a half years, the nation has watched and listened about the death of Trayvon Martin. We we re barraged with photos released by the media of a smiling 12-year old child wearing a football jersey. We we re told that Trayvon was on his way home from a store after purchasing a tea and Skittles, when he was confronted and ultimately shot and killed by an overzealous George Zimmerman, a wannabe policeman. The media sold the story that Trayvon was completely innocent and that Zimmerman was a killer. Shortly after the shooting, the president even weighed in saying if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon. After his comments, not only was the case portrayed as a murder involving a child, but a black child, inserting race into the equation. The FBI investigated to see if race was an issue and concluded after an extensive review, that no racism existed. The Sanford Police Department further concluded that the shooting was justified and that no charges would be filed. Not satisfied, Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and other black activists used the shooting to promote hate and to infuriate the black populace. Bowing to pressure, the local decision not to prosecute was overridden, and the State Attorney was brought in to file charges. After the charge of S econd Degree Murder was filed, the state attorneys took to the airwave's to vilify and convict Zimmerman before the case ever went to trial. Du r ing the trial the true facts of the case were revealed. We learned that Trayvon had grown considerably and was not the portrayed smiling 12year old. We learned that the neighborhood where the shooting occurred was being victimized by young black males committing burglary. We learned that Zimmerman, a resident and community watch volunteer, observed a young black man in the neighborhood, who he did recognize. He called the police. When he lost sight of the young man because he r an, he got out of his car to get the number off a nearby condo to tell police the location where he lost sight of the fleeing young man. While returning to his vehicle, he was confronted and assaulted by the awaiting young man. While being pinned on the ground and having his head bashed against the sidewalk, Zimmerman feared for his life and used his licensed firearm in self-defense. The jury after hearing the facts returned a not guilty verdict. Not satisfied with the verdict, Sharpton, Jackson and now A ttorney General Holder, took to the airwaves, to stir hate and call for protests. As a result of their hate speech, across the nation several innocent people have been injured and thousands of dollars in property damage has occurred. It is sad when anybody, regardless of age or race, loses their life. Even worse is when people use a death to promote their own agenda and cause a racial divide in our great country. The constant attempt of some to divide us into groups of black or white should be replace with one, where we all belong to one group, with our colors being r ed, white and blue. No end in sight to social servicesPr etty much lost in the immigration debate is the cost to those of us already living here. We've heard about increased competition for already scarce jobs. But in addition, America is paying the price in increased so-called r edistributive programs. The number of people on food stamps has doubled under President Obama. All of the other costly, government provided social services are increasing rapidly. There is no end in sight.Stop the regulationsO ur oppressive national government is over-regulating us. We are tired of being told how much salt we can put on our food, what kind of windows we can but for our houses, what types of guns we can own, what kinds of prayers we can say, and where we can say them, what type of energy we can use, what type of doctor we can see, and when, and what we are permitted to do to elect political candidates of our choice. This is the tyranny our Founding Fathers fought against. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail newsfp@hometownnewsol.com.

Sometimes when computers malfunction, the timing can be coincidental causing you to chase your tail around trying to fix it. Most of the time when your computer starts acting squirrelly, its good practice to consider the last thing that happened r ight before the problem popped up and then try to undo whatever it is that was changed. B ut then again, sometimes undoing the last thing that happened can be a red herring, causing you to spin y our wheels for hours. Take this email I received from George for instance: "Hi S ean. Read your articles every week and look forward to them. It's the first article I look for in H ometown News. "Sean, I was having a problem with my Microsoft mouse, so my son gave me an optical mouse to install. I just disconnected the old one and plugged in the optical mouse and turned the computer on. It began loading files for it and now, every time I turn on the computer, I have to hit F1 to continue loading windows. "Then I'm told that Windows has updated my computer clock and asks me to check it. It is always wrong and I have to correct the month, year and time. Do you have any ideas what is causing this because it never has done this before? I'm sure it had to do with adding the new mouse (italics added by me). I re call reading one of your articles where you said most computer problems were due to software added to the computer. Any corrections I can make? Thank y ou in advance and please don't stop writing your articles because you certainly have made a big difference to so many of us." George from Port St. L ucie. On the surface, it would appear George is on the r ight track, because he knows that when he added the new hardware (the mouse) and often when new hardware is installed problems can occur. But, after reading his email and considering what was going on, I realized that George was about to start "chasing r abbits." This is how I r eplied to George: "Hi. Thanks for reading! What's happening on your system likely has nothing to do with the new mouse, just coincidence that it started happening at the same time y ou added a new piece of hardware. Your machine is probably older than three y ears, yes? On your motherboard is a small battery, such as that found in a watch. When that battery r uns down, you will have to hit F1 every time you boot and reset the clock. With the battery dead it loses track of time when it powers down and all BIOS settings have to be reset on boot up. Unplug the system, open the 'can' and look for a watchlike battery (probably about the size of a quarter) and r eplace it. That ought to correct the issue. Hope that helps and thanks again for read ing." Sean The next day I opened my email and found the following e-mail from George: "Hello Sean. Thank y ou so much for the info on the dead battery. I never thought of that and yes, my machine is over seven years old and I have never opened the 'can,' but the way you explained it, I think I can do that. I will let you know how I make out. Again thank you so much for your help." And the day after that: "Hello Sean. Just a follow up on your advice regarding r eplacing the computer's battery. It worked like a charm. I looked in the computer manual to find the info on the battery (CR2032), purchased a r eplacement from Radio S hack, opened the 'can' and even I accomplished this task. Will wonders never end?

American Association of Poison Control Centers reported that in 2012 F lorida poison control centers r eceived 5,202 calls involving exposures to illicit synthetic substances, a considerable spike compared to 2,906 calls in 2010. S ynthetic marijuana, often known as K2" or "Spice," is one of the substances whose popularity is "alarmingly high," as noted by the Office of N ational Drug Control Policy. A ccording to the 2011 Monitoring the Future survey of drug-use trends among youth, 11.4 percent of 12th graders used K2 or Spice in the past y ear, ranking it the second most common illicit drug used by that age group. Often sold as incense and falsely marketed as "natural," labels of Spice claim the product contains a psycho-active material taken from plants. Chemical analyses actually reveal that the active ingredients are instead synthetic cannabinoid compounds. Because these chemicals are considered to have high potential for abuse and no medical benefit, the Drug Enforcement A dministration designated its five active chemicals as Schedule I controlled substances, making them illegal to sell, buy, or process. Anyone experiencing an adverse r eaction to an illicit synthetic substance should contact their local poison center at (800) 222-1222. DOH protects, promotes and improves the health of all people in F lorida through integrated state, county and community efforts.

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. B ack in 1968 when I first w ent into the retail car business with my father, I can r emember asking him, "What is holdback?" I was learning the business and had been studying the invoices on new Pontiacs that General Motors sent us when they shipped a new car that we had ordered. We had to pay the invoice immediately when it was issued, sometimes even before the car arrived at our dealership. A ctually, in most cases, it was our bank or GMAC who paid GM and we borrowed the money from them to pay for the car. My father's answer to my question about holdback was that it was an increase in the amount of the invoice that we paid General Motors which was not really part of the price of the car. It was just an extra amount added to the real price of the car and included in the invoice. At that time it was 2 percent of the MSRP [suggested retail], so if a new P ontiac Bonneville had an MSRP of $10,000 and a true cost of $9,000, the factory invoice would be $9,200. I asked my father, "When do we get the $200 back?" He said, "At the end of the year." I asked him if they paid us interest on our money and I can remember him laughing loudly and saying no. Of course my next question was why they do that. He told me that the reason they gave him was to help dealers sell their cars for more money so that they didn't go broke. He said that because they didn't get their holdback money for such a long period of time, they began to think of their invoice as being the actual cost of the car. General M otors felt that many dealers we re such poor businessmen that they might sell their cars so cheaply that they would go out of business. No w, because GM was kind enough to hold back hundreds of thousands of dollars of the dealers' money [and pay them no interest on it] but return the money to them once a year, they could help the dealers make a bigger profit and maintain adequate working capital. At that time I thought this was the biggest bunch of boloney I had ever heard and I was sure that this was a scheme by the manufacturers to keep a free float of millions of dollars of their dealers' money under the guise of helping the dealers. I asked my father why the dealers didn't strongly object to this and he said that most dealers actually "liked" the idea of holdback. When I heard that, I thought that maybe GM and the manufacturers were right about the dealers not being smart enough to sell their cars for a reasonable profit. It took me a few more years in the business before I understood what was really going on with holdback. It was a "no brainer" as to why the manufacturers liked it but at last I understood its attraction to us dealers. Because we had to pay an extra amount ov er the true price of the car and not see that money for up to a year, we began to think of the invoice as the true price, even though it was actually inflated by hundreds of dollars. Because all manufacturers added holdback to all dealers invoices, the net effect was to raise the price of all cars to all buyers by the amount of this holdback. I know this is a dirty word, but it is price fixing on the grandest of scales. This might have been something that Henry Fo r d, Alfred Sloan, and Walter Chrysler concocted while playing golf at Bloomfield H ills Country Club outside of D etroit. Another neat thing about holdback for us dealers is being able to tell our customers that we are only charging them "X dollars" ov er invoice. Or, we can tell them that we will sell them this car at invoice with no profit to us at all! [There's a sucker born every minute]. D ealers often have "invoice sales" with copies of the invoice pasted on the car windows. Who doesn't believe that an invoice is the cost of the car? The truth is in the semantic skullduggery "M r. C ustomer, I solemnly swear to you that this is the exact price that I paid the factory for this car. In fact, here's a copy of the invoice." That's what the dealer "paid" the factory all right, but it's not what the he paid the factory after he got his holdback check in the mail. Y ou might be thinking, so we 'r e talking about $200 more or less on a $10,000 car. Who cares? Don't forget, that was ov er 40 years ago. Holdbacks have expanded considerably and now instead of several hundred dollars we're talking several thousand. Also, dealers no longer have to wait a y ear to get their hold back money back. Now they get it back monthly. Manufacturers even changed the names of these monies they hold back.Is a holdback really a holdup? ON CARSEARL STEWART See EARL, A8

These are innocuous names so that, if you see them on the invoice, you will have no suspicionnames like floor plan assistance, advertising, PDI, Administrative or DAP. Of course there are also cash r ebates to dealers that don't even show on the invoice. I estimate the average car invoice today includes $3,000 to $4,000 in hidden holdbacks to the dealer. The bottom line is that y ou don't rely on the dealer's factory invoice to determine the price you are willing to pay for a car. And be especially suspicions when the dealer quotes you a price of "X dollars over invoice" or actually shows you the invoice. You've heard the old joke, "How can you tell when a politician is lying?" Answer: When his lips are moving. "How can you tell when a car dealer is lying?" Answer: When he shows you the invoice.

TREASURE COAST FAU's H arbor Branch Oceanographic Institute has launched a new website to provide realtime water measurements concerning the Indian River Lagoon. The information comes from the first of Harbor Br anch's Land/Ocean B iogeochemical Observatory units placed in the lagoon to measure important environmental parameters including temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, water color, chlorophyll that is indicative of algae in the water column, and nutrients such as nitrates and phosphates. The website, http://fau-hboi.loboviz.com/, is accessible 24 hours a day. FA U Harbor Branch has a long history of conducting r esearch and monitoring in the lagoon, which is one of the most biodiverse estuaries in North America. Its r esearch includes relating seagrass status with water quality; determining the causes of macroalgae and harmful algal blooms; studying marine mammal health; and population and mercury in the food web and ecosystem change. The L OBO units, and the accompanying website with high quality, freely accessible, realtime data, will transform these long-standing research efforts while providing this information to all who wish to see or use it. This real-time data will allow us to determine critical baselines for the lagoon's environment and its relationships to its plants and animals," said Dennis H anisak, Ph.D., who leads FA U Harbor Branch's LOBO efforts. "We also will be able to study significant events, such as water discharges, algal blooms, and storm events and how these events r elate to ecosystem changes in the lagoon, as they happen. This LOBO technology will provide researchers, colleagues, governmental agencies, students of all levels, and the general public unprecedented IRL environmental data, real-time." The LOBO units were developed by leading chemical oceanographers and estuarine researchers, have been tested, proven and improved over time, as well as have a national and international presence in Canada, C alifornia, Oregon, Delaware, M aine and the west coast of F lorida. FAU Harbor Branch's L OBO units will integrate into the National Ocean Observatory Data System, allowing comparative studies both within the state and on a national scale. A new public outreach video also was released to educate the community on the Indian River Lagoon and the research that is conducted by FA U Harbor Branch scientists in the lagoon www.youtube.com/watch?v= GSxeDCtsOZc&feature=youtu. be.

LUCIE Drawing can start as a hobby. Spending hours in a sketch book with just thoughts and a pencil can be liberating. F or many, seeing their artwork on a record or a poster is a far off dream. F or Marcus Grant, another leap in his career was made in June when his artwork appeared on emerging recording artist Ayron Michael's debut album, Unleashed. Mr. Michael, a Fort Pierce native, was introduced to Mr. Grant through an acquaintance and was given the opportunity to design the album cover. "H e is a high school friend of my girlfriend," Mr. Grant said. "We got together over the phone and talked it out. I had it done in about two we eks." Mr. Grant is no stranger to his artwork being in the limelight. This year, a collaboration with friends Charlie G arrett, Andrew Palmacci and Jon Artigas, will feature the final installment of Beast Knights, a three part comic as a graphic novel. B east Knights, the fantasy novel, was given visualization by Mr. Grant, from a story to reality. He said that while it was one of the hardest undertakings he had ever done, it was one of the most rewarding. "O nce we got the hard copies of the comic it turned into one of the most enjoyable experiences as an artist," he said. "I'm given a script and I look at it like a movie in my head and I have to take snap shots. Then we story board it and put it together." In the meantime, Mr. Grant pushes himself every day with his drawings, literally. Earlier this year, he undertook a drawing challenge of his own called the 100 day challenge' that called for him to do a drawing every day for 100 days. "I wanted to get consistent with my art work," Mr. Grant said. "Drawing was the start to my day. I figured if I completed a small piece it would get the smaller pieces and commissioned work done." No w he is in the midst of a 365 day challenge that will feature superheroes, gaming heroes and va r ious characters of his creation. The drawings will be made into a one of a kind poster board and displayed at SuperCon, held in M iami, next July. F or those who want to get into drawing or want to improve their craft, Mr. Grant suggests practice. "W ork from the best," he said. "Learning what the human body can and cannot do, look at scenery of places you know, emulate it, and then work on your own style. If you have talent, you can utilize it."

The pineapple is one of the world's most exotic and unique fruits. If you recall in the early history of our area, especially Jensen Beach, pineapple plantations were an abundant commodity. The fruits that you grow y ourself will probably not be as large as the ones you buy in the store but they are fun to grow and sweet when they finally ripen. You can grow y our pineapple plants in pots for your porch or patio or even directly in the ground. Pineapple plants planted directly in the ground will yield a larger fruit. The pineapple is actually a member of the bromeliad family. You may have seen or own some of these interesting, colorful ornamental plants. One of the unique features of these plants is that they absorb water and nutrients from water that is caught in the "r eservoir" in the center of the plant. The pineapple differs in the fact that it absorbs its nutrients more like a regular houseplant through the root system. Pineapple plants require bright light in order to thrive. One of the most rewarding ways to grow your plants is by growing it from scratch. If you prefer a shortcut, many nurseries carry pineapple plants already started and ready for planting. Your first step is to find the pineapple to use for your project. Look for fruit that looks healthy and has nice green leaves. This will help to produce a better plant. M any people simply cut off the tops of the fruit and try to plant them in the ground flesh and all. This usually will not work well as the fleshy parts will rot and this will lead to rotting of the roots as well. The best way is to grasp the leafy part of the plant and twist (hard) and it should come out with a part of the center. If you use the method of cutting off the tops, you must cut away the fleshy areas of the pineapple so only the core r emains. The next step is quite simple. Remove some of the lower leaves as you would if yo u were trimming a shrub. S et aside for a day or so before planting to help prevent root-rot. The next thing you need to do is to get the roots of the plant started enough so that it will "take" when it is planted in the soil. Simply place the core is some water (a shallow bowl will do) for a couple of weeks or until you see visible signs of root development. Change the water occasionally to prevent it from stagnating. Once you see some root development, it's time for the fun part. Choose a 12inch or larger pot (clay is the best) and also purchase a good quality potting mix that features good drainage. C actus soil will work great as well as Jiffy Mix or a compatible brand of seed starting soil. It is wise to place a 2-inch layer of stones at the bottom of the container to help keep water that drains from contacting the roots. F inally, plant the crown as y ou would any houseplant in the soil and water well. K eep the plant evenly moist for best results. Do not over water or allow the plant to become bone dry. As the plant grows, bear in mind that many of the original leaves will drop and new growth will begin to take their place. This does not mean the plant is dying, it is a natural process. As the plant grows, you can repot it into a larger container if you desire, or even plant it outdoors. R emember that it can take three years for the plant to produce fruit so y ou may want to plant several plants at different times to help keep a more steady supply of fruit coming. Also remember that these plants will not tolerate very cold temperatures so be sure to protect them during periods of colder winter temperatures. Y ou may occasionally fertilize with a liquid soluble fertilizer such as Miracle Gro but be sure not to ov erdo it. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

Being a true "sports nut," I love the month of July. B aseball is in full swing and pennant races are heating up. Football's training camps are set to open. What I admit to enjoying the most is waking up early, flipping on the television and watching tennis at Wimbledon and then a week or so later, doing the same to tune in golf. As I write this from the comfort of my recliner, The O pen Championship is being played. Just as I did a couple weeks back, I will wake early this weekend, sit down with my tea and crumpets and enjoy golf competition being played on a venue unlike any I've played here in the states. O kay, I don't really care for hot tea and I confess to never having had a "crumpet," but I think coffee and an English muffin will do. The oldest major in golf happens to also be the only one not played on this side of the "pond." That's Britspeak for the Atlantic Ocean. I'm trying to get in character and feel the mood. I even have my umbrella next to my recliner. With the w eather we've been having it feels like Scotland here, but warmer. The Open treats us to a totally different game from what we are used to playing or watching. Golf here is played mainly through the air. We have lots of water hazards, not too much wind and soft, over-watered fairways and greens. Open courses are golf courses in the truest sense. Bunkers are actually penal. In stark contrast to here, pros want no part of any bunker in this w eek's event. There are several reasons why I love The Open. It is not just that it is the oldest of the majors. I think it's because it is played on courses that are as courses we re meant to be. Golf originated with the bored and solitary shepherds of the Dark Ages. It was a quiet way for them to pass the time without going crazy from boredom while endlessly herding their flocks around the meadow. S heep are gentle, lovable creatures, but hardly stimulating company. So, shepherds would pick up a lump of wood and a fairly r ound stone and whack it about while one sheep followed another around the fields from sun-up to sunset. They didn't keep score or argue over who had the better stick or rock. It was simply something to pass the time. The terrain over which shepherds watched their flocks was a rolling, natural meadow. The closer to the sea, the more rolling it became and the more entrenched with long grass, heather and sharp, thorny gorse. It was there that the game became more fun and skill-driven. Who wants to knock a rock around on an empty, flat piece of yard anyway? On those meadows, golf evolved. Of course, there are organic things that just seemed to happen. Mother N ature was the only course architect back then. She allowed the wind and rain to shape the land. The animals hid from the frigid air and spray from the sea in small pits. Shepherds rightfully feared hitting their rock into one of these pits. I'm guessing the sheep were not very fond of those moments either. Over time, some shepherds became quite good at this game and in 1860 the very first Open Championship was played. By then, golf had reached the point where it was a proper game, with proper rules and the best player usually won. A tradition was born and it has grown more glorious with each passing year. With the exception of bombs dropping during world wars, nothing has stopped this event from taking place each summer. The Open is a romantic celebration of the way our game is meant to be played. It encourages risk and r ewards those fortunate enough with a wee bit of luck. Even those who play safe may suffer from an unfortunate bounce here and there. It closely emulates real life with all the crazy bounces, good and bad luck, and the occasional r eward for skill and bravado. B est of all, the winner's trophy, the Claret Jug, is lent to the champion for the next y ear. His name is inscribed on its base and he gets to trot around the globe showing it off. It's the trophy of the "Champion of the Y ear," winner of The Open, golf's oldest, and perhaps, greatest event. No w if you'll excuse me, I'm actually craving a crumpet.

TREASURE COAST Most of the time, children on the Autism spectrum are misunderstood. Theres never enough time, resources or patience to give these special children the quality of care they deserve. They sometimes get lost in the shuffle between special education classes and mainstream classr ooms. How ever, a newly formed nonprofit housed in Jensen Beach is giving these children an outlet. Arts for Autism of the Treasure Coast, founded by Rachel S elph of Port St. L ucie, offers art classes as a way for Au tistic children to express themselves. Each of the classes, which are held several times throughout the w eek, are taught by a group of trained volunteers. The children are encouraged to express themselves with paint, glitter and glue and at the end of each session, have a product to be proud of. Children on the Autism spectrum are usually very visual, Ms. S elph said. We have children who ra nge from very high functioning to some who dont speak at all. Each one are paired with a volunteered and helped to express the ideas that are living in their heads. The organization has specialized ways to get each child engaged in the activities. Each participant, depending on their level of functioning, absorbs the instructions and creates works of art that are then placed on the walls of the facility. W e let the children hang their paintings wherever they want to, Ms. Selph said. Some of them are hanging upside down and some are crooked, but its all part of how the students express themselves. S ome of the works of art will be framed and sold at an upcoming fundraiser. W e are trying to raise money for art supplies and for generally keeping the nonprofit afloat. Theres no paid staff, and all of the art instructors are here voluntarily because they either have a child on the Autism spectrum or because they love the idea of helping these wonderful children. Par ents who bring their child to the art classes have an opportunity to network and talk about ideas that have helped with dealing with the sometimes frustrating life with an autistic child. I t can be trying, said Ms. Selph, whose daughter was diagnosed with Autism. It can be hard on the parent and the child, so whenever theres a chance to talk to someone who knows what youre going through and who you can bounce ideas off, it helps. There is a waiting list for children to participate in the class. However, if there are more volunteers and more art supplies, more children will be able to benefit from the program.

LUCIE COUNTY B idders from around the world will soon be able to purchase foreclosed properties in St. Lucie County. Starting Sept. 3, the St. Lucie C ounty Clerks office will begin conducting foreclosure sales online. The new process will allow bidders to submit deposits electronically and view upcoming auctions, bidding history, auction results and more. The interactive site will also allow users to easily r esearch properties, case details, and legal descriptions without having to search through the court records database. The new sales format will make it easier to research and bid on properties from the convenience of your home or office, said Joseph E. Smith, S t. Lucie County Clerk of the Circuit Court. The process will be more transparent, accessible, and efficient. By switching from in-person to online foreclosure auctions, Mr. Smith expects to save taxpayers an estimated $30,000 in operating costs annually. The added efficiency will allow his staff to dedicate more time toward processing the countys 7,800 properties currently in foreclosure. The online sales compliment the new electronic filing of civil cases and documents, which has been increasing processing of many cases and is expected to save $100,000 in operating and printing costs annually. ClerkAuction, the online system currently operating the Clerks tax deed sales, will also manage the foreclosure auctions. On Aug. 5, foreclosure auctions will start being posted on the site, https://stlucie.clerkauction.cF or Hometown News NewsFP@hometownnewsol.comSee AUCTIONS, A2The new sales format will make it easier to research and bid on properties from the convenience of your home or office.Joseph E.

Hillmoor Dr., Ste. 404 W eston-based Florida C ommunity Bank is making the transition from a holding company for the assets of failed banks to one of the states largest banking operations. FCB recently completed its first negotiated acquisition, buying Great Florida B ank of Coral Gables. Based on Great Floridas most r ecent report of outstanding shares of common stock, the deal is valued at about $42.5 million with FCB paying $2.34 for each share. FCB, a subsidiary of Bond Str eet Holdings, was formed in 2009 and used to maintain the assets of failed banks in cooperation with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Great Florida also was in shaky condition, but FCB already was involved in turning it around, FCB President Kent Ellert said in a telephone interview. Based on the pricing, we feel OK about the assets of Great Florida. The combined operations put FCB as the fourth largest bank based in Florida with assets of $4.4 billion and 67 offices along both F lorida coasts. Mr. Ellert doesnt expect any of the offices will close. V ery little overlapped between our two operations, he said. FCB is now poised to become a statewide bank, something Florida hasnt had with a state-based bank in several years. It will need to move into the Jacksonville, Panhandle, Tallahassee and Tampa Bay markets to do it. In the news release announcing the deal, Mr. Ellert said, The transaction with Great Florida Bank is truly a game changer for our Company as we have been eager to expand our presence in Miami, Floridas largest metro market. We are a Florida-based, F lorida-focused company and the merger with Great F lorida Bank adds significant scale to our brand and will result in meaningful synergies that will benefit customers and communities of both institutions. C onsistent with our previously completed eight successful acquisitions, this merger will significantly enhance our Florida footprint and will provide a foundation for us to augment our commercial lending team to further generate organic growth, he said. M. Mehdi Ghomeshi, Pr esident of Great Florida B ank, said in the news re lease, "This merger is a win for our stockholders, customers and banking franchise. This business combination significantly enhances our combined abilities to be one of the financially strongest and most competitive community banking organizations in Florida. We are confident that this merger is a highly attractive strategic alignment for all of our constituents. The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of the fourth quarter of 2013, subject to customary conditions, including r eceipt of regulatory approvals and the approval of Great Florida stockholders.

PORT ST. LUCIE The G uardian Angels, an organization fairly well known on the Treasure Coast for their volunteer team of citizen crime-fighters, is expanding their territory. Long recognized in 200 U.S. cities and 14 countries around the world, the G uardian Angels have been protecting the Treasure C oast since 2004 and are expanding their watchful eye farther into Martin C ounty. Thirty-four years ago it started with a man saddened by the crime-riddled deterioration of his beloved Br onx neighborhood. He decided to take matters into his own hands and his attempts at deterring crime became a nation-wide endeavor. Closer to home in 1989, S teve Horton, now chapter leader for the Treasure C oast, saw an ad on television for the Guardian Angels and immediately knew it was what he was meant to do. I want to make a difference its just in my blood. This was an opportunity to do that in a phenomenal way, Mr. Horton said. C ommercial cleaner by day, Mr. Horton spends his spare time with a group of eight other individuals patrolling neighborhoods and intimidating would-be criminals in order to reduce crime. W e re here to help the community, Mr. Horton said. They do so with intensive training, by developing a pre-determined course of action, and working hand in hand with local law enforcement, who appreciate their contribution. Their goal is to be present in communities prone to violence and crime to ease the minds of peaceful residents and encourage shady characters to stay away. W e re a fantastic deterr ent, Mr. Horton said. W e re masters of intimidation. The humanitarian crime fighters capped with their signature red berets are not about violence or vigilantism, but about making a difference and being prepared. They strive to be the eyes and ears of local law enforcement and have never had to resort to using physical force during incidents on the Treasure Coast. What we do works, Mr. Hor ton said. We stop a lot of crime before it happens. Their main goal is prevention, knowing that their mere presence helps keep unlawful activity at bay, so they teach neighborhoods how to run watch programs and patrol questionable areas. B ut they are also active participants, helping locate missing teens last fall and striving to find a man who attempted to abduct a woman in Stuart this summer. Mr. Horton said the G uardian Angels are always open to new recruits, men and women, who want to make a difference in their neighborhoods and give local residents the peace of mind the deserve.

Protesters wont gain any respectI drove around and saw people protesting the Zimmerman verdict. I wonder how many of them actually know all of the details. Actually, Im guessing theres only two who do. And ones dead and ones life will never be the same. J ustified or not, two lives have been lost. I see young men jumping around on street corners in the middle of summer, with hoodies on, sweating to death trying to make a point about a case Im willing to bet they know nothing about. One young man was screaming obscenities to passersby, while grabbing his crotch, and holding a sign that read Justice and Peace for Travon. (Yes, Trayvon was spelled incorrectly. I just have to ask myself just how much peace this young man wanted. What kind of justice does he want? Did he follow the trial? Did he do his own r esearch? Or was he being a follower and using this forum as a place to act the fool? Now, before everyone jumps on my case, Im from the hood. Im not new to the racism that exists; however, I know that we have to present ourselves in a different light to be seen in a different light. J umping around with your pants around your thighs, grabbing your crotch and cussing out white drivers will never gain you any respect.W elfare recipients live high on the hogFr om the comments I get from a lot of people, they are sick of the people in this city on welfare, living other peoples money and living high on the hog. People on welfare are able to purchase the same things the common working person is able to purchase. So heres the reasons they have kids, receive a payment for each one, get into sec 8 housing, and get into all the government subsidized programs they can so they wont have to work. Wow, no wonder they wanted Obama in as president. They dont worry about not getting 40 hours a week for work. They spend more time figuring out how to get stuff for free. By the way, Obamacare, as its called, is not a government paid program that money comes from the tax payers, and for the liberal democrats who voted for it before a new congress came to power, they did that just to look good for the people who have the only inclination to live off the government welfare system. Quit having kids! In todays economy, seeing a mother with two or three kids especially in Fort Pierce, theres no way shes got any career going to afford those kids. Sorry people, but welfare is not a career opportunity. H opefully someday welfare will be eliminated and these people will quit breeding just for that government welfare check. To the welfare ranterI sincerely dont understand how such ignorance still exists. The writer, who constantly complains about people on welfare, (Ive dubbed him the welfare ranter), has way too much time on his or her hands. I know its only one person writing those rants because the level of ignorance is the same throughout all of them. If you have such a problem with the residents of Fort Pierce, MOVE! Quit whining about welfare and people in government housing. It is what it is. Theres always been those less-fortunate, those who still work hard and cant get ahead, those who dont try to better themselves and those who constantly complain about all of them. You are the cancer that needs eradicating. Move to the suburbs, learn how to write effectively, become an activist, but please, shut your stupid mouth up about the city of Fort Pierce and its residents. Y ou get on my last nerve. A view on the Zimmerman caseF or the past one and a half years, the nation has watched and listened about the death of Trayvon Martin. We we re barraged with photos released by the media of a smiling 12-year old child wearing a football jersey. We we re told that Trayvon was on his way home from a store after purchasing a tea and Skittles, when he was confronted and ultimately shot and killed by an overzealous George Zimmerman, a wannabe policeman. The media sold the story that Trayvon was completely innocent and that Zimmerman was a killer. Shortly after the shooting, the president even weighed in saying if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon. After his comments, not only was the case portrayed as a murder involving a child, but a black child, inserting race into the equation. The FBI investigated to see if race was an issue and concluded after an extensive review, that no racism existed. The Sanford Police Department further concluded that the shooting was justified and that no charges would be filed. Not satisfied, Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and other black activists used the shooting to promote hate and to infuriate the black populace. Bowing to pressure, the local decision not to prosecute was overridden, and the State Attorney was brought in to file charges. After the charge of S econd Degree Murder was filed, the state attorneys took to the airwave's to vilify and convict Zimmerman before the case ever went to trial. Dur ing the trial the true facts of the case were revealed. We learned that Trayvon had grown considerably and was not the portrayed smiling 12year old. We learned that the neighborhood where the shooting occurred was being victimized by young black males committing burglary. We learned that Zimmerman, a resident and community watch volunteer, observed a young black man in the neighborhood, who he did recognize. He called the police. When he lost sight of the young man because he r an, he got out of his car to get the number off a nearby condo to tell police the location where he lost sight of the fleeing young man. While returning to his vehicle, he was confronted and assaulted by the awaiting young man. While being pinned on the ground and having his head bashed against the sidewalk, Zimmerman feared for his life and used his licensed firearm in self-defense. The jury after hearing the facts returned a not guilty verdict. Not satisfied with the verdict, Sharpton, Jackson and now A ttorney General Holder, took to the airwaves, to stir hate and call for protests. As a result of their hate speech, across the nation several innocent people have been injured and thousands of dollars in property damage has occurred. It is sad when anybody, regardless of age or race, loses their life. Even worse is when people use a death to promote their own agenda and cause a racial divide in our great country. The constant attempt of some to divide us into groups of black or white should be replace with one, where we all belong to one group, with our colors being r ed, white and blue. No end in sight to social servicesPr etty much lost in the immigration debate is the cost to those of us already living here. We've heard about increased competition for already scarce jobs. But in addition, America is paying the price in increased so-called r edistributive programs. The number of people on food stamps has doubled under President Obama. All of the other costly, government provided social services are increasing rapidly. There is no end in sight.Stop the regulationsO ur oppressive national government is over-regulating us. We are tired of being told how much salt we can put on our food, what kind of windows we can but for our houses, what types of guns we can own, what kinds of prayers we can say, and where we can say them, what type of energy we can use, what type of doctor we can see, and when, and what we are permitted to do to elect political candidates of our choice. This is the tyranny our Founding Fathers fought against. 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. Sometimes when computers malfunction, the timing can be coincidental causing you to chase your tail around trying to fix it. Most of the time when your computer starts acting squirrelly, its good practice to consider the last thing that happened r ight before the problem popped up and then try to undo whatever it is that was changed. B ut then again, sometimes undoing the last thing that happened can be a red herring, causing you to spin y our wheels for hours. Take this email I received from George for instance: "Hi S ean. Read your articles every week and look forward to them. It's the first article I look for in H ometown News. "Sean, I was having a problem with my Microsoft mouse, so my son gave me an optical mouse to install. I just disconnected the old one and plugged in the optical mouse and turned the computer on. It began loading files for it and now, every time I turn on the computer, I have to hit F1 to continue loading windows. "Then I'm told that Windows has updated my computer clock and asks me to check it. It is always wrong and I have to correct the month, year and time. Do you have any ideas what is causing this because it never has done this before? I'm sure it had to do with adding the new mouse (italics added by me). I re call reading one of your articles where you said most computer problems were due to software added to the computer. Any corrections I can make? Thank y ou in advance and please don't stop writing your articles because you certainly have made a big difference to so many of us." George from Port St. L ucie. On the surface, it would appear George is on the r ight track, because he knows that when he added the new hardware (the mouse) and often when new hardware is installed problems can occur. But, after reading his email and considering what was going on, I realized that George was about to start "chasing r abbits." This is how I r eplied to George: "Hi. Thanks for reading! What's happening on your system likely has nothing to do with the new mouse, just coincidence that it started happening at the same time y ou added a new piece of hardware. Your machine is probably older than three y ears, yes? On your motherboard is a small battery, such as that found in a watch. When that battery r uns down, you will have to hit F1 every time you boot and reset the clock. With the battery dead it loses track of time when it powers down and all BIOS settings have to be reset on boot up. Unplug the system, open the 'can' and look for a watchlike battery (probably about the size of a quarter) and r eplace it. That ought to correct the issue. Hope that helps and thanks again for read ing." Sean The next day I opened my email and found the following e-mail from George: "Hello Sean. Thank y ou so much for the info on the dead battery. I never thought of that and yes, my machine is over seven years old and I have never opened the 'can,' but the way you explained it, I think I can do that. I will let you know how I make out. Again thank you so much for your help." And the day after that: "Hello Sean. Just a follow up on your advice regarding r eplacing the computer's battery. It worked like a charm. I looked in the computer manual to find the info on the battery (CR2032), purchased a r eplacement from Radio S hack, opened the 'can' and even I accomplished this task. Will wonders never end?

American Association of Poison Control Centers reported that in 2012 F lorida poison control centers r eceived 5,202 calls involving exposures to illicit synthetic substances, a considerable spike compared to 2,906 calls in 2010. S ynthetic marijuana, often known as K2 or Spice, is one of the substances whose popularity is alarmingly high, as noted by the Office of N ational Drug Control Policy. A ccording to the 2011 Monitoring the Future survey of drug-use trends among youth, 11.4 percent of 12th graders used K2 or Spice in the past y ear, ranking it the second most common illicit drug used by that age group. Often sold as incense and falsely marketed as natural, labels of Spice claim the product contains a psycho-active material taken from plants. Chemical analyses actually reveal that the active ingredients are instead synthetic cannabinoid compounds. Because these chemicals are considered to have high potential for abuse and no medical benefit, the Drug Enforcement A dministration designated its five active chemicals as Schedule I controlled substances, making them illegal to sell, buy, or process. Anyone experiencing an adverse r eaction to an illicit synthetic substance should contact their local poison center at (800) 222-1222. DOH protects, promotes and improves the health of all people in F lorida through integrated state, county and community efforts.

I was lear ning the business and had been studying the invoices on new P ontiacs that Gener al M otors sent us when they shipped a new car that we had or der ed. W e had to pay the invoice immediately when it was issued, sometimes even befor e the car arr ived at our dealership A ctually in most cases it was our bank or GMA C who paid GM and w e borr o w ed the money fr om them to pay for the car My father s answ er to my question about holdback was that it was an incr ease in the amount of the invoice that w e paid Gener al M otors which was not r eally par t of the pr ice of the car I t was just an extr a amount added to the r eal pr ice of the car and included in the invoice A t that time it was 2 per cent of the MSRP [suggested r etail], so if a new P ontiac B onneville had an MSRP of $10,000 and a tr ue cost of $9,000, the factor y invoice would be $9,200. I asked my father When do we get the $200 back? H e said, A t the end of the y ear I asked him if they paid us inter est on our money and I can r emember him laughing loudly and saying no Of course my next question was why they do that. H e told me that the r eason they gave him was to help dealers sell their cars for mor e money so that they didn t go br oke H e said that because they didn t get their holdback money for such a long per iod of time they began to think of their invoice as being the actual cost of the car Gener al M otors felt that many dealers we re such poor businessmen that they might sell their cars so cheaply that they would go out of business Now, because GM was kind enough to hold back hundr eds of thousands of dollars of the dealers money [and pay them no inter est on it] but r etur n the money to them once a y ear they could help the dealers make a bigger pr ofit and maintain adequate wor king capital. At that time I thought this was the biggest bunch of boloney I had ever hear d and I was sur e that this was a scheme b y the manufactur ers to keep a fr ee float of millions of dollars of their dealers money under the guise of helping the dealers I asked my father why the dealers didn t str ongly object to this and he said that most dealers actually liked the idea of holdback. When I hear d that, I thought that maybe GM and the manufactur ers w er e r ight about the dealers not being smar t enough to sell their cars for a r easonable pr ofit. It took me a few mor e y ears in the business befor e I understood what was r eally going on with holdback. I t was a no br ainer as to why the manufactur ers liked it but at last I understood its attr action to us dealers B ecause w e had to pay an extr a amount ov er the tr ue pr ice of the car and not see that money for up to a y ear w e began to think of the invoice as the tr ue pr ice even though it was actually inflated b y hundr eds of dollars B ecause all manufacturers added holdback to all dealers invoices the net effect was to r aise the pr ice of all cars to all buy ers b y the amount of this holdback. I kno w this is a dir ty wor d, but it is pr ice fixing on the gr andest of scales This might have been something that H enr y Fo r d, Alfr ed S loan, and W alter Chr ysler concocted while playing golf at B loomfield H ills C ountr y Club outside of D etr oit. Another neat thing about holdback for us dealers is being able to tell our customers that w e ar e only char ging them X dollars ov er invoice Or w e can tell them that w e will sell them this car at invoice with no pr ofit to us at all! [ Ther e s a sucker bor n ever y minute]. D ealers often have invoice sales with copies of the invoice pasted on the car windo ws Who doesn t believe that an invoice is the cost of the car? The tr uth is in the semantic skulldugger y M r. C ustomer I solemnly sw ear to y ou that this is the exact pr ice that I paid the factor y for this car I n fact, her e s a cop y of the invoice That s what the dealer paid the factor y all r ight, but it s not what the he paid the factor y after he got his holdback check in the mail. Y ou might be thinking, so we r e talking about $200 mor e or less on a $10,000 car Who car es? Don t for get, that was ov er 40 y ears ago H oldbacks have expanded consider ably and no w instead of sever al hundr ed dollars w e r e talking sever al thousand. Also dealers no longer have to wait a y ear to get their hold back money back. N o w they get it back monthly M anufactur ers even changed the names of these monies they hold back.Is a holdback really a holdup? ON CA RSEA R L STE W AR T See EARL, A8

These are innocuous names so that, if you see them on the invoice, you will have no suspicionnames like floor plan assistance, advertising, PDI, Administrative or DAP. Of course there are also cash r ebates to dealers that dont even show on the invoice. I estimate the average car invoice today includes $3,000 to $4,000 in hidden holdbacks to the dealer. The bottom line is that y ou dont rely on the dealers factory invoice to determine the price you are willing to pay for a car. And be especially suspicions when the dealer quotes you a price of X dollars over invoice or actually shows you the invoice. Youve heard the old joke, How can you tell when a politician is lying? Answer: When his lips are moving. How can you tell when a car dealer is lying? Answer: When he shows you the invoice.

TREASURE COAST FAUs H arbor Branch Oceanographic Institute has launched a new website to provide realtime water measurements concerning the Indian River Lagoon. The information comes from the first of Harbor Br anchs Land/Ocean B iogeochemical Observatory units placed in the lagoon to measure important environmental parameters including temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, water color, chlorophyll that is indicative of algae in the water column, and nutrients such as nitrates and phosphates. The website, http://fau-hboi.loboviz.com/, is accessible 24 hours a day. FA U Harbor Branch has a long history of conducting r esearch and monitoring in the lagoon, which is one of the most biodiverse estuaries in North America. Its r esearch includes relating seagrass status with water quality; determining the causes of macroalgae and harmful algal blooms; studying marine mammal health; and population and mercury in the food web and ecosystem change. The L OBO units, and the accompanying website with high quality, freely accessible, realtime data, will transform these long-standing research efforts while providing this information to all who wish to see or use it. This real-time data will allow us to determine critical baselines for the lagoons environment and its relationships to its plants and animals, said Dennis H anisak, Ph.D., who leads FA U Harbor Branchs LOBO efforts. We also will be able to study significant events, such as water discharges, algal blooms, and storm events and how these events r elate to ecosystem changes in the lagoon, as they happen. This LOBO technology will provide researchers, colleagues, governmental agencies, students of all levels, and the general public unprecedented IRL environmental data, real-time. The LOBO units were developed by leading chemical oceanographers and estuarine researchers, have been tested, proven and improved over time, as well as have a national and international presence in Canada, C alifornia, Oregon, Delaware, M aine and the west coast of F lorida. FAU Harbor Branchs L OBO units will integrate into the National Ocean Observatory Data System, allowing comparative studies both within the state and on a national scale. A new public outreach video also was released to educate the community on the Indian River Lagoon and the research that is conducted by FA U Harbor Branch scientists in the lagoon www.youtube.com/watch?v= GSxeDCtsOZc&feature=youtu. be.

LUCIE Drawing can start as a hobby. Spending hours in a sketch book with just thoughts and a pencil can be liberating. F or many, seeing their artwork on a record or a poster is a far off dream. F or Marcus Grant, another leap in his career was made in June when his artwork appeared on emerging recording artist Ayron Michaels debut album, Unleashed. Mr. Michael, a Fort Pierce native, was introduced to Mr. Grant through an acquaintance and was given the opportunity to design the album cover. H e is a high school friend of my girlfriend, Mr. Grant said. We got together over the phone and talked it out. I had it done in about two we eks. Mr. Grant is no stranger to his artwork being in the limelight. This year, a collaboration with friends Charlie G arrett, Andrew Palmacci and Jon Artigas, will feature the final installment of Beast Knights, a three part comic as a graphic novel. B east Knights, the fantasy novel, was given visualization by Mr. Grant, from a story to reality. He said that while it was one of the hardest undertakings he had ever done, it was one of the most rewarding. O nce we got the hard copies of the comic it turned into one of the most enjoyable experiences as an artist, he said. Im given a script and I look at it like a movie in my head and I have to take snap shots. Then we story board it and put it together. In the meantime, Mr. Grant pushes himself every day with his drawings, literally. Earlier this year, he undertook a drawing challenge of his own called the day challenge that called for him to do a drawing every day for 100 days. I wanted to get consistent with my art work, Mr. Grant said. Drawing was the start to my day. I figured if I completed a small piece it would get the smaller pieces and commissioned work done. Now he is in the midst of a 365 day challenge that will feature superheroes, gaming heroes and var ious characters of his creation. The drawings will be made into a one of a kind poster board and displayed at SuperCon, held in M iami, next July. F or those who want to get into drawing or want to improve their craft, Mr. Grant suggests practice. W ork from the best, he said. Learning what the human body can and cannot do, look at scenery of places you know, emulate it, and then work on your own style. If you have talent, you can utilize it.

For more information, call (888) 844-8404 or visit Today I would like to talk about a topic that is fun to do and has a delicious ending. Why not try growing your own pineapples? The pineapple is one of the worlds most exotic and unique fruits. If you recall in the early history of our area, especially Jensen Beach, pineapple plantations were an abundant commodity. The fruits that you grow y ourself will probably not be as large as the ones you buy in the store but they are fun to grow and sweet when they finally ripen. You can grow y our pineapple plants in pots for your porch or patio or even directly in the ground. Pineapple plants planted directly in the ground will yield a larger fruit. The pineapple is actually a member of the bromeliad family. You may have seen or own some of these interesting, colorful ornamental plants. One of the unique features of these plants is that they absorb water and nutrients from water that is caught in the r eservoir in the center of the plant. The pineapple differs in the fact that it absorbs its nutrients more like a regular houseplant through the root system. Pineapple plants require bright light in order to thrive. One of the most rewarding ways to grow your plants is by growing it from scratch. If you prefer a shortcut, many nurseries carry pineapple plants already started and ready for planting. Your first step is to find the pineapple to use for your project. Look for fruit that looks healthy and has nice green leaves. This will help to produce a better plant. M any people simply cut off the tops of the fruit and try to plant them in the ground flesh and all. This usually will not work well as the fleshy parts will rot and this will lead to rotting of the roots as well. The best way is to grasp the leafy part of the plant and twist (hard) and it should come out with a part of the center. If you use the method of cutting off the tops, you must cut away the fleshy areas of the pineapple so only the core r emains. The next step is quite simple. Remove some of the lower leaves as you would if yo u were trimming a shrub. S et aside for a day or so before planting to help prevent root-rot. The next thing you need to do is to get the roots of the plant started enough so that it will take when it is planted in the soil. Simply place the core is some water (a shallow bowl will do) for a couple of weeks or until you see visible signs of root development. Change the water occasionally to prevent it from stagnating. Once you see some root development, its time for the fun part. Choose a 12inch or larger pot (clay is the best) and also purchase a good quality potting mix that features good drainage. C actus soil will work great as well as Jiffy Mix or a compatible brand of seed starting soil. It is wise to place a 2-inch layer of stones at the bottom of the container to help keep water that drains from contacting the roots. F inally, plant the crown as y ou would any houseplant in the soil and water well. K eep the plant evenly moist for best results. Do not over water or allow the plant to become bone dry. As the plant grows, bear in mind that many of the original leaves will drop and new growth will begin to take their place. This does not mean the plant is dying, it is a natural process. As the plant grows, you can repot it into a larger container if you desire, or even plant it outdoors. R emember that it can take three years for the plant to produce fruit so y ou may want to plant several plants at different times to help keep a more steady supply of fruit coming. Also remember that these plants will not tolerate very cold temperatures so be sure to protect them during periods of colder winter temperatures. Y ou may occasionally fertilize with a liquid soluble fertilizer such as Miracle Gro but be sure not to ov erdo it. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

Being a true sports nut, I love the month of July. B aseball is in full swing and pennant races are heating up. Footballs training camps are set to open. What I admit to enjoying the most is waking up early, flipping on the television and watching tennis at Wimbledon and then a week or so later, doing the same to tune in golf. As I write this from the comfort of my recliner, The O pen Championship is being played. Just as I did a couple weeks back, I will wake early this weekend, sit down with my tea and crumpets and enjoy golf competition being played on a venue unlike any Ive played here in the states. O kay, I dont really care for hot tea and I confess to never having had a crumpet, but I think coffee and an English muffin will do. The oldest major in golf happens to also be the only one not played on this side of the pond. Thats Britspeak for the Atlantic Ocean. Im trying to get in character and feel the mood. I even have my umbrella next to my recliner. With the w eather we've been having it feels like Scotland here, but warmer. The Open treats us to a totally different game from what we are used to playing or watching. Golf here is played mainly through the air. We have lots of water hazards, not too much wind and soft, over-watered fairways and greens. Open courses are golf courses in the truest sense. Bunkers are actually penal. In stark contrast to here, pros want no part of any bunker in this w eeks event. There are several reasons why I love The Open. It is not just that it is the oldest of the majors. I think its because it is played on courses that are as courses we re meant to be. Golf originated with the bored and solitary shepherds of the Dark Ages. It was a quiet way for them to pass the time without going crazy from boredom while endlessly herding their flocks around the meadow. S heep are gentle, lovable creatures, but hardly stimulating company. So, shepherds would pick up a lump of wood and a fairly r ound stone and whack it about while one sheep followed another around the fields from sun-up to sunset. They didnt keep score or argue over who had the better stick or rock. It was simply something to pass the time. The terrain over which shepherds watched their flocks was a rolling, natural meadow. The closer to the sea, the more rolling it became and the more entrenched with long grass, heather and sharp, thorny gorse. It was there that the game became more fun and skill-driven. Who wants to knock a rock around on an empty, flat piece of yard anyway? On those meadows, golf evolved. Of course, there are organic things that just seemed to happen. Mother N ature was the only course architect back then. She allowed the wind and rain to shape the land. The animals hid from the frigid air and spray from the sea in small pits. Shepherds rightfully feared hitting their rock into one of these pits. I'm guessing the sheep were not very fond of those moments either. Over time, some shepherds became quite good at this game and in 1860 the very first Open Championship was played. By then, golf had reached the point where it was a proper game, with proper rules and the best player usually won. A tradition was born and it has grown more glorious with each passing year. With the exception of bombs dropping during world wars, nothing has stopped this event from taking place each summer. The Open is a romantic celebration of the way our game is meant to be played. It encourages risk and r ewards those fortunate enough with a wee bit of luck. Even those who play safe may suffer from an unfortunate bounce here and there. It closely emulates real life with all the crazy bounces, good and bad luck, and the occasional r eward for skill and bravado. B est of all, the winner's trophy, the Claret Jug, is lent to the champion for the next y ear. His name is inscribed on its base and he gets to trot around the globe showing it off. Its the trophy of the Champion of the Y ear, winner of The Open, golfs oldest, and perhaps, greatest event. Now if youll excuse me, Im actually craving a crumpet.
