Pictures, stories and sales P ageA8ST. LUCIE COUNTY For some, wildlife is something that can be enjoyed at a zoo or on television. But, for Winnie Burns and her husband, Bo b, wildlife is a way of life. "W e' ve been here for 20years," Mrs. Burns said. "We started out with two rabbit cages and now we have acres dedicated to helping save the lives of creatures big and small." W ith plans to expand, which will include paddocks for the animals and a community garden, Mrs. Burns is excited about the future. "W e are hopeful that we are able to continue helping the helpless," said Mrs. Burns. "Animals that end up here are usually very sick or injured. We nurse them back to health and give them another chance at life. One of the most rewarding experiences in life is to see an animal that was near death return to its home in the wild. It is simply amazing." The wild' oasis is full of animals whose gratitude is expressed through their peaceful existence. A Catahoula Cu r, affectionately named Katie H oula, stands guard of her adopted home. Although she does nothing more than carefully watch those who come and go her presence is a staple on the premises. Once past Katie, a barrage of hellos from happy parrots greets those lucky enough to take a tour through the property. "I have a parrot named Mozart who I received from an older lady who r elocated to live with her daughter," Mrs. Burns said with a smile. "She was absolutely heartbroken that she had to leave Mozart and called nearly every day to check up on him. When he first got here, all he did was cry Oh, Mo zart,' much like his owner did before she had to pass him on to me. B ut after a while, he started saying hello' to everybody. She was happy to know that he was adjusting and that his heartbreak from leaving her was starting to subside." It was evident that each animal arrived at Creature Safe P lace with its own story and, Mrs. Burns knew each one of them. As we were guided through the sanctuary, Mrs. Burns pointed out a Barred Owl named Warren whose wing had been broken. "H e' s almost better," Mrs. Bu r ns said proudly. "He'll be able to go home soon. We do our part to get them well, but what these animals r eally want is to get back to their homes. Getting them there is our job." Another creature that made its way to Mrs. Burns is Belle, a deer that was brought to the refuge still in her amniotic sac. "B elle's mother was hit by a car and killed on impact. She was pregnant with Belle and Belle's twin who also didn't survive. A State Trooper brought Belle to me and I tore open the amniotic sac, blew air in her nose and mouth and popped her on the chest to get her heart going. I had to bottle feed her and now she thinks I'm her mother," Mrs. Burns said with a look of love that any mom would have. "Now, Belle is a surrogate mom to other fawns that come in. She nurtures them while I bottle feed them. She is an amazing creature that knows that she has a job to do. She shares her community with a swan, three fawns and a tortoise."

S adly, automotive sales people are also ranked among the lowest in r egards to honesty and ethical standards. So as a car dealer who has literally written the book about how to avoid getting ripped off when buying or servicing your car, I would like my readers of the top 10 things not to do: (1) Don't believe automotive ads. Often the extremely low price or discounts apply to only one car or to a very select group that you won't fit in. It is best to just ignore these ads. (2) Never buy a car on impulse on the first day y ou start shopping. There is something about a new car that excites people and appeals to them on an emotional level. Go home and think about it this major purchase. Research the model of car you looked at and the price on the Internet. You should take at least a week or two in the decision making process before you buy a car. (3) Don't trade your old car in to the dealer you buy from without shopping its v alue. The dealer can make it appear that he is giving y ou a lot of money for your trade by taking some of the high markup on the new car and showing it as part of the appraisal value. Check Kelly Blue Book (kbb.com) and E dumnds.com on the I nternet. Get at least three bids from other dealers of the same make for your trade. Make the purchase of the new car and the sale of your trade two separate transactions. (4) Don't use the dealer's financing without checking with your bank or credit union. Shop for the best price on your financing just like you shop for the best price on your trade-in and the best price on new y our car. Oftentimes credit unions, which you don't have to be a member of, have the best rates. (5) Don't believe it when they say "This low price is good today only". This is one of the favorite ruses used by car sales people and dealers. In 99% of the cases, you can buy that car for the same or an even lower price later. The only time that you can't is when factory incentives expire on a certain date, typically at the end of the month. If that is the claim, demand to see the written factory incentive by the manufacturer. (6) Don't agree to "Make me a written offer with a deposit and I will submit it to my manager." This is to get you psychologically engaged in the buying process. Once you have signed a buyer's order and written out a check, you will remain in the dealership for a while and are more likely to buy. The salesman knows that. I nsist on getting their best price on the car you have selected. You should never make the first offer. Once y ou have their price, compare it with at least 3 other prices from other dealers on the same make and model. (7) Never agree to "take this new car home and see how you like it." This is the famous "puppy dog" technique so named because once you take a puppy dog home overnight, who has the heart to return it the next day? You, your neighbors, and friends will see that shiny new car parked in your driveway. It sure looks good! How can you explain to anybody that y ou didn't buy it? (8) Don't commit to "buy the car if you can get my monthly payments below $___.__" Most of us tend to think in terms of our monthly budgets. We might feel that we can afford a new car as long as it costs us less than $350 per month, but there is a big difference between $350 per month for 36 months and $350 per month for 72 months. I r ecommend that you finance a car for no more than 42 months, preferably 36. (9) Don't believe "You have my word on that." Be absolutely sure that every promise or commitment made to you by your sales person is in writing and signed by a manager. No exceptions! (10) Don't accept that All dealers charge a dealer fee and we can't remove it from the invoice." In fact, all dealers do not charge a dealer fee. I don't. But unfortunately most do charge this "gotcha" ranging from $495 to $1,000. It is true that Florida law (which should prohibit dealer fees entirely) r equires that the dealer fee appear on all invoices. If y ou charge just one customer a dealer fee, you must charge everybody. The state legislators, in their infinite wisdom, decided if a car dealer is going to take advantage of even one buyer, he must take advantage of all of the buyers.never discriminate. But the loophole in this stupid law is for you to demand that the dealer r educe the price of the car by the amount of the dealer fee, making it a wash. All of this information and much more is contained in my book, "Confessions of a Recovering C ar Dealer." I donate 100 percent of the sales of the book to charity as I make my living selling cars, not books. Many local groups have used this as a fundraiser, by having me speak at their meeting and re ceiving all of the proceeds from the books purchased that day by their members and guests. You can purchase my book on www.Amazon.com. I know I will never win a popularity contest among other car dealers, but I am ashamed of the ethics of our industry and am dedicated to doing everything I can to change it.How to avoid getting ripped off ON CARSEARL STEWART

affected by the harmful blue-green algae, murky water and dying ocean life are those who rely on the ri ver to make a living. C aptain Marcia Foosaner r uns a fishing charter along the Treasure Coast but hasn' t put her boat in the water since the end of June. "I wouldn't have the heart to take anybody fishing in this sewer," Capt. Foosaner said. D an and Rochelle Neumann, owners of Coastal P addle Boarding in Stuart, should be busy this time of y ear, but can't offer paddleboard rentals when people are instructed not to come in contact with the water. "O ur business is D-E-AD. D ead in the water," Mr. N eumann said. "D ead because of the water," Mrs. Neumann said. The Neumanns, along with other local business o wners, have even gone as far as sending bills to the Army Corps of Engineers for lost wages due to lack of business. The kicker is that they have a daughter going off to college this fall with no business revenue to pay for it. B oth believe this is a disaster for the entire Treasure C oast and its economy and S tuart Mayor Eula Clarke agreed, attributing the core issue to government mismanagement and greed. "W e can't have a vibrant community when we have an almost dead St. Lucie River," Mayor Clarke said. "I t' s like a part of us is dying." Ev en some non-marine based businesses are feeling the negative effects of the toxic slime that has taken over the waterways. D ale Davenport, who originally moved to Stuart because of its beautiful waters, now owns a wealth management company and is noticing that clients are leaving the city in search of greener pastures and bluer waters. "I f no one's going to fix this, a lot of businesses are going to suffer," Mr. Davenport said. Businesses still have to pay rent and feed their families despite having no business. B ut Mayor Clarke, Captain Foosaner, even the N eumann's are hopeful that if residents from Hobe S ound to Fort Pierce continue to raise their voices in protest, they will not go unnoticed. The river can't speak for itself. We need to support the river when the ri ver needs help," Mayor Clarke said. "I think if we keep at it we can make something happen," Capt. Foosaner said. Mo re scheduled protests are in the works in the hopes that concerned residents will continue to come out and fight for their businesses and their way of life on the Treasure Coast.DamageF rom page A1 three events each Month.

Is it six months? Who checks up on them? Florida is losing a lot of tax money by not following up on this credit and the rest of us who do live here all the time are paying for their credit. W elfare should not be a way of lifeThis is to the person whom labeled me as the "welfare r anter." Have you been following congress lately? Food stamp money is at 71 billion dollars, 51 million people are on the system in this great nation. Did you research that? Or are you just like some of the people out there who just want that supposed free government handout to help you? The government is not helping you at all. You have to get an education; you know reading, writing and math. And maybe even speak fluent English. And I'm not talking street English either. Now as far as some of these young women having kids Some just have kids to get into the w elfare system, so in truth they're using young lives as a tool to support themselves. That's a moral crime itself. So when you decided to give me a title and tell me I'm ignor ant, perhaps you might want to meet me and I'll show you my research I do. By the way areas that have a high poverty r ate are due to many factors, but the biggest one is welfare. W elfare was never meant to be a way of life, thank you! Oh and the wonderful democrats that supposedly represent us they can't make you get an education only you can do that and where can you find educational material oh at the public library. That's the tax payer funded program, I use it all the time. However I don't go there to play games or listen to music on the computer. But I'm in charge of my o wn destiny and I'm not about to become a victim of the governments system. So next time you write in to bash me acknowledge the facts first. By the way they should make w elfare a charity through the government then people wouldn't just get the money then see how many people would produce young lives. I'm guessing not too many. Editor's note: A fact check regarding the amount of money spent on food stamps and the amount of people r eceiving food stamps revealed that Congress has spent 81 B illion dollars and the amount of people benefitting from the Food Stamp program is 47 million.Questioning the quotes1. When Government fears the People there will be Liberty." Thomas Jefferson. 2. The Liberties of a people never were, nor ever be secure, when Transactions of their 'Rulers' may be concealed from them." Patrick Henry. Q uestion for No. 1. Does this Administration fear American Citizens? No! Q uestion for No. 2. Are transactions being concealed from our Rulers (this administration)? Yes! Ba r ack Hussein Obama gives billions to rebel countries. How many Americans know when, to whom, and how much? Recently, billions to Egypt...to the Muslim Brotherhood Rebels. He admitted openly on TV that he was going over the head' of Congress in a particular matter. He has been going ov er American heads as well as Congress since day one. Why?2 016 already?Is it really happening? Are politicians, pundits and the news media already starting to float names of potential 2016 presidential candidates? The election is three years away. Do we really need to start the 2016 presidential campaign in 2013? I heard that Senator Ted Cruz is bouncing around the country on a "fact finding" tour. Is this just a prelude to an announcement for candidate in 2016? Who is paying for this fact finding tour? This reminds me of H illary Clinton's fact finding tour prior to her run for the N ew York senate seat while she was still first lady. She also "bounced" around the country, but 70 percent of her trips we re to New York. Paid for by the taxpayer. Politicians on both sides of the aisle spend too much time trying to grab headlines and get their names out there to actually do the jobs they were elected to do. Ted Cruz represents Texas. So why is he travelling the country on the taxpayer dime? H illary's fact finding tour was done while she was first lady, before she announced she was running for senate under the guise that, as first lady, she was taking the pulse of the country. What she was actually doing was finding out which state she was most popular in, so she could move there and run for senate. I found it funny that she didn't choose her home state of Illinois. All her trips were paid for by, guess who? The taxpayer. The American people are not idiots. We do not need three years to make a decision on who gets our vote. We do not want to see rock'em, sock'em politicians battling it out for the next three years. There ought to be a law stating y ou cannot announce your candidacy until January 1st of the election year. If you can't get your message across in ten months, you don't deserve the job.What happened to teaching?T eaching was once a revered profession, dominated by people dedicated to the children. Teachers were highly r espected and appreciated. Along came teachers' unions. F or many, teaching became just a job. Teachers' unions became a powerful force. Pay scales increased but respect decreased. The kids got lost in the shuffle..Stop breaking the lawsOne of the values that makes America great is we respect the rule of law. Foreigners who come here illegally do not subscribe to that concept. After all, by definition, their coming here breaks our immigration laws. If it were just a few, it would still be wrong but we might be able to accommodate a few. However, CBO estimates that the number under the Senate passed bill which relaxes immigration r ules is the number expected to arrive during the next decade is 20 million people. That number cannot possibly be assimilated.Don't ban gunsChicago is the murder capital of the country. Likewise, W ashington, DC. They have another thing in common. B oth outlaw guns. While premeditated crimes with guns are uncontrollable, fatal gun accidents have dropped to six per million. Hundreds of thousands of crimes are avoided when law-abiding citizens possess weapons. Those who are determined to ban guns are on the wrong track. 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. One of the features that make laptop computers so appealing is the fact that they are portable. W ith a laptop you are free to r oam where you want to. A laptop with a wireless I nternet connection gives you the ability to work in any r oom in the house and even beyond. With a laptop you have the freedom to leave y our home (or office) entirely and still have the full blown computer power that you would expect to have with a desktop machine. And with free wireless "hot spots" popping up all over the place the possibilities are endless you can get the same amount of work done that you would expect to get done if you were confined to a desk all day from places like coffee shops, airports, the lobby of a fine hotel or even (if y ou live in a gated community) down at the clubhouse by the pool. B ut (as is true with all good things) there are a few gotcha's" that you have to be aware of if you decide to take y our machine out on the r oad. No w, not everyone has this problem. There are plenty of people out there who are able to use their laptops wherever they want and sending isn't a problem but there are others who (try as they might) can't send an email when away from home to save their life. The answer usually lies in what email service their system is set up to use when the mail fails to send versus the email services that works no matter where they are. C onfused? Let's back track a bit and talk about the typical home internet service and what's included. When y ou sign up for internet service for your home one of the things that you get with that service is an email address. Your Internet Service Pr o vider gives you access to the internet from home and sets up a username which typically becomes your email address. Then your email program (Outlook Express, O utlook, Windows Live Mail etc.) gets set up with your username, password, "POP" and "SMTP" settings. Now the POP settings (POP= "Post Office Protocol") are the settings that tell your email program from where on the internet your incoming mail can be retrieved and the SMTP settings (SMTP= "S imple Mail Transfer Pr otocol") tells your mail program where on the internet your outgoing mail needs to go when you click the "Send" button. The problem sending mail usually lies with the SMTP settings. Y ou see Internet Service Pr o viders take SPAM very seriously and in an effort to try to thwart SPAM, some providers will prohibit r elaying outgoing mail through their SMTP servers. What this means is that when an outgoing mail message is being sent from within their network, it goes along without a hitch. But when y ou try to use your machine in a network that is different than network you use at home (maybe your home network is AT&T and the coffee shop you are trying to send email from is Comcast for example) then the SMTP server rejects the outgoing mail because it's not originating from within its network but from some other network. The message gets blocked as part of the service provider's efforts to thwart SPAM. M any ISPs have a different SMTP address for people when they are on the road but one of the easiest ways to work around this issue is to set up a free "web based" email service like Gmail so it doesn't matter where you are when you try to send email. W ith an email service like Gmail you can set up your SMTP settings in your email program to point to Gmail's server and bypass your ISP's SMTP settings altogether. It's a simple fix and using a web based email service also lets y ou keep using the same email address even if you move or change internet service providers. But that's a whole other issue altogether isn't it?

LUCIE COUNTY W ith the excitement of each new school year comes intense preparation from teachers and administrators in hopes that this year will be as, if not more, successful than lasts. The St. Lucie County School District begins the 2013-14 school year on Aug. 19, with approximately 41,000 students expected in its 42 elementary, K-8, middle, high, and alternative schools, including five charter schools and Mosaic Digital Academy, a three-county virtual K-12 school operated by S t. Lucie Public Schools. A new school choice for families this year is the R enaissance Charter School at Tradition, a K-6 school located in Port St. Lucie. The Ga r den City Early Learning A cademy in Fort Pierce was closed in June, 2013, as part of the school district's budget reduction strategies implemented to meet declining revenues, which totaled $11 million for the 2013-2014 school year. The entire St. Lucie C ounty School District family is eager to begin this new school year with a renewed spirit of moving our community forward," said Genelle Yost, interim superintendent. "We anticipate continuing the work of the district and the upward trend of student achievement, with a sharp focus on providing each child, every day, the tools and skills needed to be successful, lifelong learners." The district enters the third year of a pioneering five-year partnership between the St. Lucie County School Board and educational publisher Houghton M ifflin Harcourt. This partnership enhances educational resources for students, and advances teacher capacity and parenting skills through four major components: ensuring the success of the St. Lucie Parent Academy; professional development support for private and public early learning centers; a focused approach to science, technologies, engineering and mathematics curriculum and teacher preparation for grades K-8; and creating a public access internet "cloud" environment for textbook, reference and research materials to r eplace textbooks and backpacks with technologically based resources available equitably to all. F or students who attended one of the F-rated schools, parent are allowed to fill out a transfer request. "W e are prevented from asking them why they are r equesting a change," said J anice Karst, director of communications of St. Lucie C ounty Schools. "Our choice plan allows parents to move their child as long as there is a seat available in their child's grade level, and the school is in their attendance z one." I nformation specific to each school, including locations, safe routes to school and bell times, is at www.stlucie.k12.fl.us/schoo l/index.aspx. Parents should be sure to check their child's school listed on the page, and click on the link to the school's web page. The district's web site, www.stlucieschools.org, offers easy to navigate links to a myriad of information r esources. Most notable is the School Search option, which links to a map that assists parents in identifying the schools within their attendance zone as determined by the district's open enrollment system in which parents can select from among schools close to where they live. Parents can also utilize the district's choice system for magnet schools or those outside of their attendance zone, within specific guidelines. I ndividual department w eb pages have detailed information for parents and students at http://www.stlucie.k12.fl.us/district/index.a spx including: The transportation department page, which includes links to add students to bus stops and an interactive pedestrian safety awareness program. Automated telephone calls with bus stop information will be sent to parents on Sunday, A ug. 11 and again on Sunday, Aug. 18. The Food Services program provides the students of St. Lucie County Public schools with nutritious, high-quality food choices to enhance their ability to learn. This page has information on how to apply for free or reduced priced meals and the prices for meals for the 2013-14 school year. Pa r ents are also highly encouraged to sign in to the F amily Access portal, for student information such as attendance, grades, health data, and communications from their child's school. This link is found under the Pa r ents and Students tab at the top of the district web page at www.stlucieschools.org. If parents do not have internet access at home they may use computers at schools, or at many other public locations such as libraries.By Anna-Marie Menhenottnews@hometownnewsol.comGetting everything needed for the first day Marisa Gordon, 8, of Port St. Lucie, chooses a blue backpack for school at the third annual Back to School Fair Trinity United Methodist Church and School gave 300 backpacks filled with school supplies to school age children in Jensen Beach on Aug. 3.Sevin Bullwinkle staff photographer Sevin Bullwinkle/staff photographerP ort St. Lucie residents Keagan and Jordan Varney, 5 and 11 respectively, receive backpacks with school supplies for the upcoming school year.

TREASURE COAST As parents begin preparations for the new school year, the F lorida Department of H ealth is urging parents to make sure their children's immunizations are up to date. Ce r tain immunizations and a recent physical are r equired for school entry into kindergarten. Students entering the seventh grade are required to have a Tdap booster which provides protection against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis. Pr oof of immunizations from a physician's office on a 680 form is required. "W e want all kids to start school on time, so we urge parents not to wait until the last minute to get immunizations," said Maureen Ryan, assistant director for Community Health. "If parents have already obtained the r equired vaccinations for their child, we ask that they turn in the 680 form from their physician to their school as soon as possible, so it can be processed prior to the start of the school year." Pa r ents are urged to contact their child's pediatrician and schedule an appointment to obtain the required v accinations and 680 form. S ome community urgent care centers are also offering back to school physicals and immunizations. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, August 16, 2013 Po rt St. Lucie A9 St .L ucie County Sheriff K en J.Mascara asks that you watch for busses and students riding bikes or walking to school F or all emergencies call 9-1-1.www.stluciesheriff.com/crime_preventionBICYCLE SAFETY: Ride in well-lit areas and never take shortcuts.

When calling for help using 9-1-1 the landline systems will automatically begin locating where the call is coming from. Teach them NOT to hang up the phone 1. Tell the call-taker the phone # of the phone they are using. If they are disconnected the operator will be able to call back. 2. Tell the call-taker which cityyou're calling from. 3. Tell the call-taker what type of emergencyyou have.

A call-taker in a far-away city or county may answer your call. To get help to you, there are two pieces of information the call-taker needs to know immediately:T each your child to... Different emergency services use different dispatch centers. With the right information, the call-taker will transfer you to the right center. Even if you have a cell phone that is not in serviceŽ officially, as long as it is charged, it will allow a 9-1-1 call. If you are disconnected, however, the operator will not be able to call you back, so you must redial 9-1-1 if you lose your connection. The FCC says 30% of all 9-1-1 calls come from cell phones. With this simple advice, you can summon the help you need from your cell phone.

H aving breakfast is not only critical to a child's overall nutrition; it can also play a key role in enhancing academic performance. A recent study reinforces the "learning connection" the crucial link between quality nutrition, physical activity and academic performance. Key findings from the study suggests: More than half (62 percent) of all teens say they do not eat breakfast every day of the week. Students who eat breakfast have better attention and memory than students who don't. Students who eat school breakfast increase their math and reading scores, and improve their cognitive speed and memory. Three out of four high school students aren't active for the recommended 60 minutes each day. Students who were more active during school performed better on standardized tests for reading, math and spelling. When preparing breakfast at home, incorporating dairy foods such as milk, cheese and yogurt can deliver essential nutrients that help kids maintain a healthy diet. These foods contain key vitamins and minerals including calcium, protein, vitamins A, D and B12, potassium, phosphoru s, r iboflavin and niacin. Getting your child off to a great, healthy start in the morning can be achieved with little effort. Breakfast foods like fruit and yogurt smoothies, yogurt topped with granola, low-fat cheese sticks and whole-grain cereal with fruit and low-fat milk are nutritious and can be prepared quickly.

PORT ST. LUCIE One of the most frustrating things as a parent is helplessly watching as a child struggles with the learning process. When all teaching methods have been tried and exasperation has set in, families have found that there is hope at the end of the tunnel. That hope encompasses study skills, out of the box teaching methods, an uncanny reward system and teachers that genuinely care about the success of each individual. "H untington works," said Cr aig Perry, owner of the H untington, Your Tutoring S olution, franchise in Port S t. Lucie. "We have been around for decades and this is a solution to learning problems. Whether the student is struggling with FCAT testing, having a hard time with algebra or difficulty r eading, we are able to combat those issues and get the student on the track to success." The original Huntington Learning Center was founded by Eileen and Raymond H untington in 1977. More than 30years later, there are 400 Huntington franchises across the country. Each one has brought the satisfaction that with dedication, goals can be met. "O ur goal is to help the student feel confident in their abilities," Mr. Perry said. "Once they feel confidence, the possibilities are F riday, August 16, 2013 A10 Port St. LucieHometown News We Offer Full Day Programs as well as Before & After School Care074794 Call for a tour of facility or for more information772-489-4800www.OpenArms4Kids.comLic.# C19SL0143 Conveniently located at 2015 South 13th St.in Fort Pierce,near Lawnwood Hospital50% OFF REGISTRATION ENROLLING NOW 075241€ Christian Values € Religious Instructions € Up-to-Date Computer Lab € Extended Day € Air Conditioned Gymnasium € FREEVPKDevelopmental Focus€ Spiritual € Intellectual € Social/ Emotional € PhysicalCo-curricular Activities € Athletics € Field Trips € Music € Clubs772-286-09322450 SEOcean Blvd. Stuart, FL34996 Igniting Souls and Minds Since 1955 REDEEMER LUTHERAN CHURCH &SCHOOLPreparing Christian LeadersŽNow enrolling for 2013-20146 Weeks 8th Grade Redeemer Lutheran School is a mission of Redeemer Lutheran Church, serving students 6 weeks through 8th grade.Redeemer Lutheran Church combines a devotion to Christ with a dedication to excellence in education. 075201 ** Boys Only Classes ** Ballet Tap Jazz Lyrical Acro Hip Hop Zumba Modern Contemporary Pointe Musical Theater Artistic Director T oni T.

endless. Self-esteem is one of the most important aspects to learning. Once a child feels that they can learn something it opens up endless possibilities." The first step in the process is an evaluation that diagnoses exactly what the problem is for each student. Many students enter the program feeling as if they are against a wall, but with the right diagnosis, the r ight methods can be explored, therefore making learning an easier process. Once the diagnosis is made, the transition to learning is a quick one. The student is not supposed to know everything," Mr. Perry said. "But, they have the ability to learn everything." W alking around the center provides sense of comfort and security. Each student has his or her own desk with a separate area for younger students. Children in third grade or y ounger develop phonics, a key to learning success. O lder students work at their own pace in a one-onone environment. Pa r ents are invited to participate in a free class that offers survival tips on how to help with homework. "M any parents haven't seen some of the math problems their children are bringing home in years," Mr. Perry said. "We offer a way for them to not get lost in the process and how to be a help to their child." Children aren't the only ones who attend classes at the center. "I had a senior citizen who attended some classes because he wanted to learn how to read. It was a long process, but after about six months, he was able to r ead. It was such a rewarding experience." Mr. Perry speaks fondly of meeting a student who he helped with study skills y ears earlier. There was a student who ran up to me and was so excited to see me," Mr. P erry said. "I couldn't r emember who she was because it had been nearly 10 years since I had taught her. But she came up to me and thanked me for helping her. She was heading to college and I was so incredibly proud to know that I had a hand in helping her get there. It really is a rewarding experience."

T ickets, which include a S outhern-style barbeque dinner, are available for $25 for Alumni Association members and $35 for nonmembers. C oach Donovan intended to make this appearance last August but his trip was canceled due to inclement weather which later developed into Hurr icane Sandy. The coach promised to reschedule as soon as possible and is now making good on that commitment, said M ichael-Brianne Pressley, president of the Treasure C oast Gator Club. "W e are proud to host C oach Donovan's only appearance in South F lorida this year," Mr. Pr essley said. "Coach Donovan is a legend in G ator sports history and we hope all Gators will come out to learn more about our championship program and the athletes that that make basketball season so exciting." U nder Coach Donovan's leadership, the UF basketball program has become one of a very short list of elite programs in the nation. In 2007, Coach Donovan's Gators became just the seventh team in NCAA history and the first in 15 years to win backto-back titles. He is only the second coach in the history of the Southeastern Conference to guide his team to multiple national titles. In April of 2010, Coach Donovan r eceived the Wooden A ward's "Legends of C oaching" honor, becoming the youngest coach to earn the award. All proceeds from this special Gator Gathering will go to the Treasure C oast Gator Club scholarship program. Since 2007, the program has provided ov er $100,000 in scholarships to local students attending UF. The scholarship program is open to any student from Indian River or St. Lucie County pursuing a UF undergraduate degree either at the main campus in G ainesville or at the UF I ndian River Research and E ducation Center in Fort Pierce. This is not only an opportunity for Gator fans to celebrate UF and hear from our wonderful basketball coach, but it also a way to further our mission by raising money for scholarships," Mr. Pr essley said. The event is sponsored by G ould Cooksey Fennell, Sam Block, Jennifer W atson in memory of Clint S. Malone and The Br eeze 93.7.

MARTIN COUNTY Br eak out your dancing shoes and get ready for Stuart's biggest and best street party: Dancin' in the Streets 2013. On Aug. 24, from noonmidnight, all of downtown S tuart will be fenced off and transformed into a music festival full of sweet sounds, good food and plenty of entertainment. Fi ve stages, 17 bands, DJ's and youth performers will take over the streets from noon to midnight all in the name of fun and fundraising. There will be vendors, beer and wine, an impressive children's play area, local restaurants serving up their fare street-side, and the popular Food Truck In v asion. "I t' s our biggest event yet," said Thondra Lanese, Stuart M ain Street manager. The bands performing include long-time local favorites like Ben Prestage, N ouveaux Honkies and Fr esh Catch, as well as newer names like Brooke E den and Laura Vivas. The R esolvers are also returning to perform along with Artikal Sound System and W onderama. B etween the reggae, S outhern rock, contempora ry pop, upbeat Latin music and more, blasting live from every corner of downtown, there promises to be a little something for everyone to enjoy. This is Martin County's best street party and we have the best soundtrack," Ms. Lanese said. "We really have a diverse range of music." F estivalgoers will experience all of the excitement and fun they've come to expect from the annual event, with a few upgrades this year. The party kicks off earlier than ever this time around, offering more time to enjoy the music and creating a more family-friendly atmosphere. The addition of food trucks is new, as is the festiva l' s partnership with the Ly r ic Theatre which allows r esidents to buy tickets in advance over the phone or online with a credit card. B lood, Sweat and Tears will also be performing at the Ly ri c during the event and tickets to that show include admission to Dancin' in the St r eets. T ickets can be purchased in advance at a discounted $10 or at the door for $15. Ad v anced tickets also include a $5 coupon to D uffy's. "I t' s definitely worth it to buy your tickets ahead of time," Ms. Lanese said. M oney raised from ticket sales supports the downtown area, funding parades, Music on the Riverwalk, even design development like r estaurant patio seating. The festival is something everyone can enjoy, but it serves a real purpose," Ms. Lanese said. Children 12 and under and music-loving canines on leashes can enjoy free admission with an adult. For everyone else, tickets are available for purchase at the Lyric box office, Seacoast National B ank, Kilwin's, Terra Fermata and Stuart Coffee Company. Ms. Lanese suggests arriving with an empty stomach to best sample the wide variety of victuals available and be prepared to have a great time with the thousands of others who show up every y ear. A hat, sunscreen, and other necessities to beat the heat aren't a bad idea, either.

One of the most common subjects that many people ask me about is about Armadillos, those strange-looking mammals. Many people think that these animals are r odents but in reality, they are not. These animals actually belong to the X enarthra family. Their closest relatives are sloths and anteaters. The main characteristic of these animals is the hard shell that covers their body. This shell is made up of bone that covers and protects the animals back. They also have bony plates that protect their tails. Armadillos love to dig. This will be attested by many Florida homeowners who wake up in the morning to see their lawn look like a battlefield. They have short and very strong legs that are well adapted for digging for insects or for making a shelter in the ground. They also have very sharp claws that act as a defense mechanism and also helps them to dig in the hardest of dirt. The diet of the armadillo consists mainly of insects such as ants, beetles and grubs. This is what they are digging for in your lawn. Although these animals are not blind, they do have very poor eyesight. The best way to keep these critters from making y our yard look like a battlefield is to control the food that they crave. Since Armadillos are after your insects and grubs, treat your lawn on a regular basis with a good quality insect control. Be sure to treat your entire lawn area for best r esults. Keep in mind that armadillo's like thinner bladed grass such as Bahia or Bermuda as opposed to the very thick Floratam or S t. Augustine varieties. M any people use herbs to flavor their food but what about the flowers that these plants and many others produce? You will be surprised to know that many of them are edible and are great for seasoning y our favorite recipes. An example of this is garlic blossoms. These flowers can be white or pink and the flower has a zingy garlic flavor that is not as strong as the flavor from the garlic bulb. Basil is another great example. You know the flavor of the basil herb but the flowers they produce are also edible. They have a flavor similar to the basil plant but it has a milder taste. This can add a great flavor to salads. Broccoli is another example that produces edible flowers. If broccoli is left to grow long enough, they will produce bright yellow flowers called florets. These yellow flowers are edible and will have a mild spicy flavor that tastes great in salads or stir-fry. If y ou are from the North C ountry, you will be familiar with the bright yellow flowers called dandelions. M ost of us thought of them as a nuisance that we had to pick out of our lawns. The surprising fact is that these flowers are edible. Dandelions are actually in the daisy family and they have a very sweet honey-like flavor. The flowers taste best when they are picked as young flowers. You can eat these blooms steamed or even ra w. Great in salads or as a garnish for other dishes. P ansies, most of us have used them as a great winter flowering annual for years but the flowers are also edible. The flower petals have a slightly green or grassy flavor. The petals are great in salads and soups. S unflowers, you know them for their distinctive large flowers that look great in your yard. These large colorful flowers are also edible. The flower is best when eaten in the bud stage that is described to have a taste similar to artichokes. Once the flowers are open, the taste can be very bitter. The buds can be steamed and used in many of your favorite dishes. W ith all these great flowers that are available for consumption I will caution that you should know where the flowers came from and if they have sprayed with any insecticides etc. before experimenting with them. Pr obably the best scenario is to grow the plants y ourself from seed. This way y ou know they have not been sprayed with any hazardous chemicals.

Congratulations to Jason Dufner on winning his first major and hoisting the Wannamaker Trophy. It was especially nice to see Dufner win this. Two y ears ago, he squandered a five shot lead over the final four holes and lost the PGA Championship in a playoff with Keegan Bradley. This y ear, as Dufner walked off the 18th green, Bradley was there to congratulate him and give him a huge hug. There is talk that the PGA of America, the governing body of the PGA Championship and organization r esponsible for club professionals across the United S tates, is considering moving its championship from August. The PGA of America may find itself in a bind in a few y ears when the PGA Championship, the Olympics in Br azil, and the Ryder Cup all fall within a few weeks of one another. One consideration is to move the championship to October. This would cause a bit of conflict with the PGA Tour and its F edEx Cup finale and the end of the Tour's season when players are trying to keep their cards for the next y ear. It would also mean chances of cold weather keeping the event from being held too far north. It bothers me enough that the World Series seems to fall later and later every y ear. I hate seeing baseball players wearing mittens, scarfs and wool beanies. I cannot imagine seeing golfers similarly attired while determining a major championship. The other majors are almost certain to not want to move or give up their spot. The green jackets in A ugusta depend on the beauty of the spring to showcase their fantastic course. The Masters isn't going anywhere else on the calendar. The Unites States Open has been a Fathers' Day w eekend staple for far too long to consider giving up its June slot. The Open Championship is the oldest of all the majors and any expectation that the Royal and Ancient would slide its championship to any month other than July is beyond silly. W ould the PGA of America consider moving its championship to before The M asters? I doubt the members of Augusta N ational could stop them, but being the first major of the year is a feather on their cap that they will not easily let go. Besides, holding a major golf tournament in Ma r ch subjects you to the same cold weather problems you get in October. That leaves us with the possibility of a May date. Of course, the PGA Tour would certainly balk at moving its marquee event, The Players Championship, yet again. There was a time, not long ago, that The Players was held just a couple weeks before The Masters. It was moved to put this nearmajor in between The M asters and U.S. Open. So I have to ask you, my faithful readers, what you would do if you had to move the PGA Championship? By moving it later in the year, y ou can actually consider playing in places like F lorida, southern California, Arizona and the like. Even as hot as it can be up north in August, no one wants to play in Miami or Phoenix. In 1987 the PGA Championship was held at PGA N ational Resort and Spa in P alm Beach Gardens. Most of the field nearly melted in the oppressive heat. Larry N elson won the title in a playoff over Lanny Wadkins. The pair set a record for highest winning score, crushing the old record by five shots. Of those making the cut, only ten rounds in the 60s would be carded that week. There were 17 r ounds in the 80s. Do you think that the sweltering heat may have had something to do with it? I think the PGA of America has a conundrum. Mo ving the date for its championship seems like a great idea. They just have to figure out to when. Maybe bouncing it around the calendar is an option. One y ear it's in march or May, the next in September or O ctober. Personally, May seems like the best spot to me, even though it will certainly twist the knockers of the lads in Ponte Vedra. Later in the year just conflicts with too much unless it goes to being played over Labor Day w eekend. But that isn't much of a move. However, any later and between the F edEx Cup, the World Se r ies, and hockey and basketball seasons beginning, the PGA Championship could become lost in the shuffle. Of course, that may be just what the PGA Tour wants. That would allow the Tour to tout The Players as the 'true" fourth major. Let me know what you would do. There are some fantastic courses in the deep south that could suddenly become an option for the PGA.

Pictures, stories and sales P ageA8ST. LUCIE COUNTY For some, wildlife is something that can be enjoyed at a zoo or on television. But, for Winnie Burns and her husband, Bo b, wildlife is a way of life. W e ve been here for 20years, Mrs. Burns said. We started out with two rabbit cages and now we have acres dedicated to helping save the lives of creatures big and small. W ith plans to expand, which will include paddocks for the animals and a community garden, Mrs. Burns is excited about the future. W e are hopeful that we are able to continue helping the helpless, said Mrs. Burns. Animals that end up here are usually very sick or injured. We nurse them back to health and give them another chance at life. One of the most rewarding experiences in life is to see an animal that was near death return to its home in the wild. It is simply amazing. The wild oasis is full of animals whose gratitude is expressed through their peaceful existence. A Catahoula Cu r, affectionately named Katie H oula, stands guard of her adopted home. Although she does nothing more than carefully watch those who come and go her presence is a staple on the premises. Once past Katie, a barrage of hellos from happy parrots greets those lucky enough to take a tour through the property. I have a parrot named Mozart who I received from an older lady who r elocated to live with her daughter, Mrs. Burns said with a smile. She was absolutely heartbroken that she had to leave Mozart and called nearly every day to check up on him. When he first got here, all he did was cry Oh, Mo zart, much like his owner did before she had to pass him on to me. B ut after a while, he started saying hello to everybody. She was happy to know that he was adjusting and that his heartbreak from leaving her was starting to subside. It was evident that each animal arrived at Creature Safe P lace with its own story and, Mrs. Burns knew each one of them. As we were guided through the sanctuary, Mrs. Burns pointed out a Barred Owl named Warren whose wing had been broken. H e s almost better, Mrs. Bur ns said proudly. Hell be able to go home soon. We do our part to get them well, but what these animals r eally want is to get back to their homes. Getting them there is our job. Another creature that made its way to Mrs. Burns is Belle, a deer that was brought to the refuge still in her amniotic sac. B elles mother was hit by a car and killed on impact. She was pregnant with Belle and Belles twin who also didnt survive. A State Trooper brought Belle to me and I tore open the amniotic sac, blew air in her nose and mouth and popped her on the chest to get her heart going. I had to bottle feed her and now she thinks Im her mother, Mrs. Burns said with a look of love that any mom would have. Now, Belle is a surrogate mom to other fawns that come in. She nurtures them while I bottle feed them. She is an amazing creature that knows that she has a job to do. She shares her community with a swan, three fawns and a tortoise.

And, I know I forgot lots. I feel like Im a missionary for animals, Mrs. Burns said. There is an amazing amount of generosity from volunteers and people from the community. I have some Eagle Scouts who are making larger cages for the rabbits, and a Brownie Tr oop who turned water bottles into feeders for the rabbits. I have an amazing circle of people who know how hard it is to keep this type of organization running. From an amazing vet, Dr. Kelly, who donates his time, services and expertise, to members of the community who donate items... We couldnt do this without them. Fr om Sept. 715, boxes will be placed around the community to help collect supplies for the animals at Creature Safe Place, which is a nonprofit, wildlife rehabilitation sanctuary and exotic animal refuge located in western part of St. Lucie County. S upplies such as bleach, vinegar, laundry and dish soap, paper towels, cloth towels, garden and building tolls, all types of animal food (especially canned dog and cat food), toys for habitat/cage enrichment, Pedialyte (regular flavor), baby wipes, money and gift cards from local merchants are welcomed. C ollection boxes can be found at several locations, including Hometown News in Lakewood Park, Kellys Animal Hospital, Tractor Supply in Fort Pierce, Ox-Bow Eco C enter, Thomas Feed and Ha y, B ig Apple Pizza Fort Pierce, Morningside Veterinary Hospital, Tri-County Animal Hospital and Tranquility Spa. B eing fortunate enough to help these wonderful, helpless creatures is a way the community can give back, Mrs. Burns said. The animals here can really do put things into perspective.

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.It pained me, but did not surprise me, to r ead that automobiler elated complaints once again topped the list of consumer concerns (Automobile-related complaints top the complaints list once again A ug. 12, Susan Salisbury). S adly, automotive sales people are also ranked among the lowest in r egards to honesty and ethical standards. So as a car dealer who has literally written the book about how to avoid getting ripped off when buying or servicing your car, I would like my readers of the top 10 things not to do: (1) Dont believe automotive ads. Often the extremely low price or discounts apply to only one car or to a very select group that you wont fit in. It is best to just ignore these ads. (2) Never buy a car on impulse on the first day y ou start shopping. There is something about a new car that excites people and appeals to them on an emotional level. Go home and think about it this major purchase. Research the model of car you looked at and the price on the Internet. You should take at least a week or two in the decision making process before you buy a car. (3) Dont trade your old car in to the dealer you buy from without shopping its v alue. The dealer can make it appear that he is giving y ou a lot of money for your trade by taking some of the high markup on the new car and showing it as part of the appraisal value. Check Kelly Blue Book (kbb.com) and E dumnds.com on the I nternet. Get at least three bids from other dealers of the same make for your trade. Make the purchase of the new car and the sale of your trade two separate transactions. (4) Dont use the dealers financing without checking with your bank or credit union. Shop for the best price on your financing just like you shop for the best price on your trade-in and the best price on new y our car. Oftentimes credit unions, which you dont have to be a member of, have the best rates. (5) Dont believe it when they say This low price is good today only. This is one of the favorite ruses used by car sales people and dealers. In 99% of the cases, you can buy that car for the same or an even lower price later. The only time that you cant is when factory incentives expire on a certain date, typically at the end of the month. If that is the claim, demand to see the written factory incentive by the manufacturer. (6) Dont agree to Make me a written offer with a deposit and I will submit it to my manager. This is to get you psychologically engaged in the buying process. Once you have signed a buyers order and written out a check, you will remain in the dealership for a while and are more likely to buy. The salesman knows that. I nsist on getting their best price on the car you have selected. You should never make the first offer. Once y ou have their price, compare it with at least 3 other prices from other dealers on the same make and model. (7) Never agree to "take this new car home and see how you like it." This is the famous puppy dog technique so named because once you take a puppy dog home overnight, who has the heart to return it the next day? You, your neighbors, and friends will see that shiny new car parked in your driveway. It sure looks good! How can you explain to anybody that y ou didnt buy it? (8) Dont commit to buy the car if you can get my monthly payments below $___.__ Most of us tend to think in terms of our monthly budgets. We might feel that we can afford a new car as long as it costs us less than $350 per month, but there is a big difference between $350 per month for 36 months and $350 per month for 72 months. I r ecommend that you finance a car for no more than 42 months, preferably 36. (9) Dont believe You have my word on that. Be absolutely sure that every promise or commitment made to you by your sales person is in writing and signed by a manager. No exceptions! (10) Dont accept that All dealers charge a dealer fee and we cant remove it from the invoice. In fact, all dealers do not charge a dealer fee. I dont. But unfortunately most do charge this gotcha ranging from $495 to $1,000. It is true that Florida law (which should prohibit dealer fees entirely) r equires that the dealer fee appear on all invoices. If y ou charge just one customer a dealer fee, you must charge everybody. The state legislators, in their infinite wisdom, decided if a car dealer is going to take advantage of even one buyer, he must take advantage of all of the buyers.never discriminate. But the loophole in this stupid law is for you to demand that the dealer r educe the price of the car by the amount of the dealer fee, making it a wash. All of this information and much more is contained in my book, Confessions of a Recovering C ar Dealer. I donate 100 percent of the sales of the book to charity as I make my living selling cars, not books. Many local groups have used this as a fundraiser, by having me speak at their meeting and re ceiving all of the proceeds from the books purchased that day by their members and guests. You can purchase my book on www.Amazon.com. I know I will never win a popularity contest among other car dealers, but I am ashamed of the ethics of our industry and am dedicated to doing everything I can to change it.How to avoid getting ripped off ON CARSEARL STEWART

I wouldnt have the heart to take anybody fishing in this sewer, Capt. Foosaner said. D an and Rochelle Neumann, owners of Coastal P addle Boarding in Stuart, should be busy this time of y ear, but cant offer paddleboard rentals when people are instructed not to come in contact with the water. O ur business is D-E-AD. D ead in the water, Mr. N eumann said. D ead because of the water, Mrs. Neumann said. The Neumanns, along with other local business o wners, have even gone as far as sending bills to the Army Corps of Engineers for lost wages due to lack of business. The kicker is that they have a daughter going off to college this fall with no business revenue to pay for it. B oth believe this is a disaster for the entire Treasure C oast and its economy and S tuart Mayor Eula Clarke agreed, attributing the core issue to government mismanagement and greed. W e cant have a vibrant community when we have an almost dead St. Lucie River, Mayor Clarke said. I t s like a part of us is dying. Ev en some non-marine based businesses are feeling the negative effects of the toxic slime that has taken over the waterways. D ale Davenport, who originally moved to Stuart because of its beautiful waters, now owns a wealth management company and is noticing that clients are leaving the city in search of greener pastures and bluer waters. I f no ones going to fix this, a lot of businesses are going to suffer, Mr. Davenport said. Businesses still have to pay rent and feed their families despite having no business. B ut Mayor Clarke, Captain Foosaner, even the N eumanns are hopeful that if residents from Hobe S ound to Fort Pierce continue to raise their voices in protest, they will not go unnoticed. The river cant speak for itself. We need to support the river when the ri ver needs help, Mayor Clarke said. I think if we keep at it we can make something happen, Capt. Foosaner said. Mo re scheduled protests are in the works in the hopes that concerned residents will continue to come out and fight for their businesses and their way of life on the Treasure Coast.DamageF rom page A1 three events each Month.

Is it six months? Who checks up on them? Florida is losing a lot of tax money by not following up on this credit and the rest of us who do live here all the time are paying for their credit. W elfare should not be a way of lifeThis is to the person whom labeled me as the "welfare r anter." Have you been following congress lately? Food stamp money is at 71 billion dollars, 51 million people are on the system in this great nation. Did you research that? Or are you just like some of the people out there who just want that supposed free government handout to help you? The government is not helping you at all. You have to get an education; you know reading, writing and math. And maybe even speak fluent English. And Im not talking street English either. Now as far as some of these young women having kids Some just have kids to get into the w elfare system, so in truth theyre using young lives as a tool to support themselves. Thats a moral crime itself. So when you decided to give me a title and tell me Im ignor ant, perhaps you might want to meet me and Ill show you my research I do. By the way areas that have a high poverty r ate are due to many factors, but the biggest one is welfare. W elfare was never meant to be a way of life, thank you! Oh and the wonderful democrats that supposedly represent us they cant make you get an education only you can do that and where can you find educational material oh at the public library. Thats the tax payer funded program, I use it all the time. However I dont go there to play games or listen to music on the computer. But Im in charge of my o wn destiny and Im not about to become a victim of the governments system. So next time you write in to bash me acknowledge the facts first. By the way they should make w elfare a charity through the government then people wouldnt just get the money then see how many people would produce young lives. Im guessing not too many. Editors note: A fact check regarding the amount of money spent on food stamps and the amount of people r eceiving food stamps revealed that Congress has spent 81 B illion dollars and the amount of people benefitting from the Food Stamp program is 47 million.Questioning the quotes1. When Government fears the People there will be Liberty." Thomas Jefferson. 2. The Liberties of a people never were, nor ever be secure, when Transactions of their 'Rulers' may be concealed from them." Patrick Henry. Q uestion for No. 1. Does this Administration fear American Citizens? No! Q uestion for No. 2. Are transactions being concealed from our Rulers (this administration)? Yes! Bar ack Hussein Obama gives billions to rebel countries. How many Americans know when, to whom, and how much? Recently, billions to Egypt...to the Muslim Brotherhood Rebels. He admitted openly on TV that he was going over the head of Congress in a particular matter. He has been going ov er American heads as well as Congress since day one. Why?2 016 already?Is it really happening? Are politicians, pundits and the news media already starting to float names of potential 2016 presidential candidates? The election is three years away. Do we really need to start the 2016 presidential campaign in 2013? I heard that Senator Ted Cruz is bouncing around the country on a fact finding tour. Is this just a prelude to an announcement for candidate in 2016? Who is paying for this fact finding tour? This reminds me of H illary Clintons fact finding tour prior to her run for the N ew York senate seat while she was still first lady. She also bounced around the country, but 70 percent of her trips we re to New York. Paid for by the taxpayer. Politicians on both sides of the aisle spend too much time trying to grab headlines and get their names out there to actually do the jobs they were elected to do. Ted Cruz represents Texas. So why is he travelling the country on the taxpayer dime? H illarys fact finding tour was done while she was first lady, before she announced she was running for senate under the guise that, as first lady, she was taking the pulse of the country. What she was actually doing was finding out which state she was most popular in, so she could move there and run for senate. I found it funny that she didnt choose her home state of Illinois. All her trips were paid for by, guess who? The taxpayer. The American people are not idiots. We do not need three years to make a decision on who gets our vote. We do not want to see rockem, sockem politicians battling it out for the next three years. There ought to be a law stating y ou cannot announce your candidacy until January 1st of the election year. If you cant get your message across in ten months, you dont deserve the job.What happened to teaching?T eaching was once a revered profession, dominated by people dedicated to the children. Teachers were highly r espected and appreciated. Along came teachers' unions. F or many, teaching became just a job. Teachers' unions became a powerful force. Pay scales increased but respect decreased. The kids got lost in the shuffle..Stop breaking the lawsOne of the values that makes America great is we respect the rule of law. Foreigners who come here illegally do not subscribe to that concept. After all, by definition, their coming here breaks our immigration laws. If it were just a few, it would still be wrong but we might be able to accommodate a few. However, CBO estimates that the number under the Senate passed bill which relaxes immigration r ules is the number expected to arrive during the next decade is 20 million people. That number cannot possibly be assimilated.Dont ban gunsChicago is the murder capital of the country. Likewise, W ashington, DC. They have another thing in common. B oth outlaw guns. While premeditated crimes with guns are uncontrollable, fatal gun accidents have dropped to six per million. Hundreds of thousands of crimes are avoided when law-abiding citizens possess weapons. Those who are determined to ban guns are on the wrong track. 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. One of the features that make laptop computers so appealing is the fact that they are portable. W ith a laptop you are free to r oam where you want to. A laptop with a wireless I nternet connection gives you the ability to work in any r oom in the house and even beyond. With a laptop you have the freedom to leave y our home (or office) entirely and still have the full blown computer power that you would expect to have with a desktop machine. And with free wireless hot spots popping up all over the place the possibilities are endless you can get the same amount of work done that you would expect to get done if you were confined to a desk all day from places like coffee shops, airports, the lobby of a fine hotel or even (if y ou live in a gated community) down at the clubhouse by the pool. B ut (as is true with all good things) there are a few gotchas that you have to be aware of if you decide to take y our machine out on the r oad. Now, not everyone has this problem. There are plenty of people out there who are able to use their laptops wherever they want and sending isnt a problem but there are others who (try as they might) cant send an email when away from home to save their life. The answer usually lies in what email service their system is set up to use when the mail fails to send versus the email services that works no matter where they are. C onfused? Lets back track a bit and talk about the typical home internet service and whats included. When y ou sign up for internet service for your home one of the things that you get with that service is an email address. Your Internet Service Pro vider gives you access to the internet from home and sets up a username which typically becomes your email address. Then your email program (Outlook Express, O utlook, Windows Live Mail etc.) gets set up with your username, password, POP and SMTP settings. Now the POP settings (POP= Post Office Protocol) are the settings that tell your email program from where on the internet your incoming mail can be retrieved and the SMTP settings (SMTP= Simple Mail Transfer Pr otocol) tells your mail program where on the internet your outgoing mail needs to go when you click the Send button. The problem sending mail usually lies with the SMTP settings. Y ou see Internet Service Pro viders take SPAM very seriously and in an effort to try to thwart SPAM, some providers will prohibit r elaying outgoing mail through their SMTP servers. What this means is that when an outgoing mail message is being sent from within their network, it goes along without a hitch. But when y ou try to use your machine in a network that is different than network you use at home (maybe your home network is AT&T and the coffee shop you are trying to send email from is Comcast for example) then the SMTP server rejects the outgoing mail because its not originating from within its network but from some other network. The message gets blocked as part of the service providers efforts to thwart SPAM. M any ISPs have a different SMTP address for people when they are on the road but one of the easiest ways to work around this issue is to set up a free web based email service like Gmail so it doesnt matter where you are when you try to send email. W ith an email service like Gmail you can set up your SMTP settings in your email program to point to Gmails server and bypass your ISPs SMTP settings altogether. Its a simple fix and using a web based email service also lets y ou keep using the same email address even if you move or change internet service providers. But thats a whole other issue altogether isnt it?

LUCIE COUNTY W ith the excitement of each new school year comes intense preparation from teachers and administrators in hopes that this year will be as, if not more, successful than lasts. The St. Lucie County School District begins the 2013-14 school year on Aug. 19, with approximately 41,000 students expected in its 42 elementary, K-8, middle, high, and alternative schools, including five charter schools and Mosaic Digital Academy, a three-county virtual K-12 school operated by S t. Lucie Public Schools. A new school choice for families this year is the R enaissance Charter School at Tradition, a K-6 school located in Port St. Lucie. The Gar den City Early Learning A cademy in Fort Pierce was closed in June, 2013, as part of the school districts budget reduction strategies implemented to meet declining revenues, which totaled $11 million for the 2013-2014 school year. The entire St. Lucie C ounty School District family is eager to begin this new school year with a renewed spirit of moving our community forward, said Genelle Yost, interim superintendent. We anticipate continuing the work of the district and the upward trend of student achievement, with a sharp focus on providing each child, every day, the tools and skills needed to be successful, lifelong learners. The district enters the third year of a pioneering five-year partnership between the St. Lucie County School Board and educational publisher Houghton M ifflin Harcourt. This partnership enhances educational resources for students, and advances teacher capacity and parenting skills through four major components: ensuring the success of the St. Lucie Parent Academy; professional development support for private and public early learning centers; a focused approach to science, technologies, engineering and mathematics curriculum and teacher preparation for grades K-8; and creating a public access internet cloud environment for textbook, reference and research materials to r eplace textbooks and backpacks with technologically based resources available equitably to all. F or students who attended one of the F-rated schools, parent are allowed to fill out a transfer request. W e are prevented from asking them why they are r equesting a change, said J anice Karst, director of communications of St. Lucie C ounty Schools. Our choice plan allows parents to move their child as long as there is a seat available in their childs grade level, and the school is in their attendance z one. I nformation specific to each school, including locations, safe routes to school and bell times, is at www.stlucie.k12.fl.us/schoo l/index.aspx. Parents should be sure to check their childs school listed on the page, and click on the link to the schools web page. The districts web site, www.stlucieschools.org, offers easy to navigate links to a myriad of information r esources. Most notable is the School Search option, which links to a map that assists parents in identifying the schools within their attendance zone as determined by the districts open enrollment system in which parents can select from among schools close to where they live. Parents can also utilize the districts choice system for magnet schools or those outside of their attendance zone, within specific guidelines. I ndividual department w eb pages have detailed information for parents and students at http://www.stlucie.k12.fl.us/district/index.a spx including: The transportation department page, which includes links to add students to bus stops and an interactive pedestrian safety awareness program. Automated telephone calls with bus stop information will be sent to parents on Sunday, A ug. 11 and again on Sunday, Aug. 18. The Food Services program provides the students of St. Lucie County Public schools with nutritious, high-quality food choices to enhance their ability to learn. This page has information on how to apply for free or reduced priced meals and the prices for meals for the 2013-14 school year. Par ents are also highly encouraged to sign in to the F amily Access portal, for student information such as attendance, grades, health data, and communications from their childs school. This link is found under the Par ents and Students tab at the top of the district web page at www.stlucieschools.org.

TREASURE COAST As parents begin preparations for the new school year, the F lorida Department of H ealth is urging parents to make sure their childrens immunizations are up to date. Cer tain immunizations and a recent physical are r equired for school entry into kindergarten. Students entering the seventh grade are required to have a Tdap booster which provides protection against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis. Pr oof of immunizations from a physicians office on a 680 form is required. W e want all kids to start school on time, so we urge parents not to wait until the last minute to get immunizations, said Maureen Ryan, assistant director for Community Health. If parents have already obtained the r equired vaccinations for their child, we ask that they turn in the 680 form from their physician to their school as soon as possible, so it can be processed prior to the start of the school year. Par ents are urged to contact their childs pediatrician and schedule an appointment to obtain the required v accinations and 680 form. S ome community urgent care centers are also offering back to school physicals and immunizations. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, August 16, 2013 Po rt St. Lucie A9 St .L ucie County Sheriff K en J.Mascara asks that you watch for busses and students riding bikes or walking to school F or all emergencies call 9-1-1.www.stluciesheriff.com/crime_preventionBICYCLE SAFETY: Ride in well-lit areas and never take shortcuts.

Use basic concepts like when an adult can't wake up, any fire that happens without an adult, or an intruder in the home. Kids get the number down (its only three digits after all), but they sometimes get confused with when to call. Encourage them to trust their gut feelings, and if in doubt, to call. When calling for help using 9-1-1 the landline systems will automatically begin locating where the call is coming from. Teach them NOT to hang up the phone 1. Tell the call-taker the phone # of the phone they are using. If they are disconnected the operator will be able to call back. 2. Tell the call-taker which cityyou're calling from. 3. Tell the call-taker what type of emergencyyou have.

A call-taker in a far-away city or county may answer your call. To get help to you, there are two pieces of information the call-taker needs to know immediately:T each your child to... Different emergency services use different dispatch centers. With the right information, the call-taker will transfer you to the right center. Even if you have a cell phone that is not in service officially, as long as it is charged, it will allow a 9-1-1 call. If you are disconnected, however, the operator will not be able to call you back, so you must redial 9-1-1 if you lose your connection. The FCC says 30% of all 9-1-1 calls come from cell phones. With this simple advice, you can summon the help you need from your cell phone.

PORT ST. LUCIE One of the most frustrating things as a parent is helplessly watching as a child struggles with the learning process. When all teaching methods have been tried and exasperation has set in, families have found that there is hope at the end of the tunnel. That hope encompasses study skills, out of the box teaching methods, an uncanny reward system and teachers that genuinely care about the success of each individual. H untington works, said Cr aig Perry, owner of the H untington, Your Tutoring S olution, franchise in Port S t. Lucie. We have been around for decades and this is a solution to learning problems.

endless. Self-esteem is one of the most important aspects to learning. Once a child feels that they can learn something it opens up endless possibilities. The first step in the process is an evaluation that diagnoses exactly what the problem is for each student. Many students enter the program feeling as if they are against a wall, but with the right diagnosis, the r ight methods can be explored, therefore making learning an easier process. Once the diagnosis is made, the transition to learning is a quick one. The student is not supposed to know everything, Mr. Perry said. But, they have the ability to learn everything. W alking around the center provides sense of comfort and security. Each student has his or her own desk with a separate area for younger students. Children in third grade or y ounger develop phonics, a key to learning success. O lder students work at their own pace in a one-onone environment. Par ents are invited to participate in a free class that offers survival tips on how to help with homework. M any parents havent seen some of the math problems their children are bringing home in years, Mr. Perry said. We offer a way for them to not get lost in the process and how to be a help to their child. Children arent the only ones who attend classes at the center. I had a senior citizen who attended some classes because he wanted to learn how to read. It was a long process, but after about six months, he was able to r ead. It was such a rewarding experience. Mr. Perry speaks fondly of meeting a student who he helped with study skills y ears earlier. There was a student who ran up to me and was so excited to see me, Mr. P erry said. I couldnt r emember who she was because it had been nearly 10 years since I had taught her. But she came up to me and thanked me for helping her. She was heading to college and I was so incredibly proud to know that I had a hand in helping her get there. It really is a rewarding experience.

T ickets, which include a S outhern-style barbeque dinner, are available for $25 for Alumni Association members and $35 for nonmembers. C oach Donovan intended to make this appearance last August but his trip was canceled due to inclement weather which later developed into Hurr icane Sandy. The coach promised to reschedule as soon as possible and is now making good on that commitment, said M ichael-Brianne Pressley, president of the Treasure C oast Gator Club. W e are proud to host C oach Donovans only appearance in South F lorida this year, Mr. Pr essley said. Coach Donovan is a legend in G ator sports history and we hope all Gators will come out to learn more about our championship program and the athletes that that make basketball season so exciting. U nder Coach Donovans leadership, the UF basketball program has become one of a very short list of elite programs in the nation. In 2007, Coach Donovans Gators became just the seventh team in NCAA history and the first in 15 years to win backto-back titles. He is only the second coach in the history of the Southeastern Conference to guide his team to multiple national titles. In April of 2010, Coach Donovan r eceived the Wooden A wards Legends of C oaching honor, becoming the youngest coach to earn the award. All proceeds from this special Gator Gathering will go to the Treasure C oast Gator Club scholarship program. Since 2007, the program has provided ov er $100,000 in scholarships to local students attending UF. The scholarship program is open to any student from Indian River or St. Lucie County pursuing a UF undergraduate degree either at the main campus in G ainesville or at the UF I ndian River Research and E ducation Center in Fort Pierce. This is not only an opportunity for Gator fans to celebrate UF and hear from our wonderful basketball coach, but it also a way to further our mission by raising money for scholarships, Mr. Pr essley said. The event is sponsored by G ould Cooksey Fennell, Sam Block, Jennifer W atson in memory of Clint S. Malone and The Br eeze 93.7.

MARTIN COUNTY Br eak out your dancing shoes and get ready for Stuarts biggest and best street party: Dancin in the Streets 2013. On Aug. 24, from noonmidnight, all of downtown S tuart will be fenced off and transformed into a music festival full of sweet sounds, good food and plenty of entertainment. Fi ve stages, 17 bands, DJs and youth performers will take over the streets from noon to midnight all in the name of fun and fundraising. There will be vendors, beer and wine, an impressive childrens play area, local restaurants serving up their fare street-side, and the popular Food Truck Inv asion. I t s our biggest event yet, said Thondra Lanese, Stuart M ain Street manager. The bands performing include long-time local favorites like Ben Prestage, N ouveaux Honkies and Fresh Catch, as well as newer names like Brooke E den and Laura Vivas. The R esolvers are also returning to perform along with Artikal Sound System and W onderama. B etween the reggae, S outhern rock, contempora ry pop, upbeat Latin music and more, blasting live from every corner of downtown, there promises to be a little something for everyone to enjoy. This is Martin Countys best street party and we have the best soundtrack, Ms. Lanese said. We really have a diverse range of music. F estivalgoers will experience all of the excitement and fun theyve come to expect from the annual event, with a few upgrades this year. The party kicks off earlier than ever this time around, offering more time to enjoy the music and creating a more family-friendly atmosphere. The addition of food trucks is new, as is the festiva l s partnership with the Lyr ic Theatre which allows r esidents to buy tickets in advance over the phone or online with a credit card. B lood, Sweat and Tears will also be performing at the Ly ri c during the event and tickets to that show include admission to Dancin in the Str eets. T ickets can be purchased in advance at a discounted $10 or at the door for $15. Adv anced tickets also include a $5 coupon to D uffys. I t s definitely worth it to buy your tickets ahead of time, Ms. Lanese said. M oney raised from ticket sales supports the downtown area, funding parades, Music on the Riverwalk, even design development like r estaurant patio seating. The festival is something everyone can enjoy, but it serves a real purpose, Ms. Lanese said. Children 12 and under and music-loving canines on leashes can enjoy free admission with an adult. For everyone else, tickets are available for purchase at the Lyric box office, Seacoast National B ank, Kilwins, Terra Fermata and Stuart Coffee Company. Ms. Lanese suggests arriving with an empty stomach to best sample the wide variety of victuals available and be prepared to have a great time with the thousands of others who show up every y ear. A hat, sunscreen, and other necessities to beat the heat arent a bad idea, either.

One of the most common subjects that many people ask me about is about Armadillos, those strange-looking mammals. Many people think that these animals are r odents but in reality, they are not. These animals actually belong to the X enarthra family. Their closest relatives are sloths and anteaters. The main characteristic of these animals is the hard shell that covers their body. This shell is made up of bone that covers and protects the animals back. They also have bony plates that protect their tails. Armadillos love to dig. This will be attested by many Florida homeowners who wake up in the morning to see their lawn look like a battlefield. They have short and very strong legs that are well adapted for digging for insects or for making a shelter in the ground. They also have very sharp claws that act as a defense mechanism and also helps them to dig in the hardest of dirt. The diet of the armadillo consists mainly of insects such as ants, beetles and grubs. This is what they are digging for in your lawn. Although these animals are not blind, they do have very poor eyesight. The best way to keep these critters from making y our yard look like a battlefield is to control the food that they crave. Since Armadillos are after your insects and grubs, treat your lawn on a regular basis with a good quality insect control. Be sure to treat your entire lawn area for best r esults. Keep in mind that armadillos like thinner bladed grass such as Bahia or Bermuda as opposed to the very thick Floratam or S t. Augustine varieties. M any people use herbs to flavor their food but what about the flowers that these plants and many others produce? You will be surprised to know that many of them are edible and are great for seasoning y our favorite recipes. An example of this is garlic blossoms. These flowers can be white or pink and the flower has a zingy garlic flavor that is not as strong as the flavor from the garlic bulb. Basil is another great example. You know the flavor of the basil herb but the flowers they produce are also edible. They have a flavor similar to the basil plant but it has a milder taste. This can add a great flavor to salads. Broccoli is another example that produces edible flowers. If broccoli is left to grow long enough, they will produce bright yellow flowers called florets. These yellow flowers are edible and will have a mild spicy flavor that tastes great in salads or stir-fry. If you are from the North C ountry, you will be familiar with the bright yellow flowers called dandelions. M ost of us thought of them as a nuisance that we had to pick out of our lawns. The surprising fact is that these flowers are edible. Dandelions are actually in the daisy family and they have a very sweet honey-like flavor. The flowers taste best when they are picked as young flowers. You can eat these blooms steamed or even ra w. Great in salads or as a garnish for other dishes. P ansies, most of us have used them as a great winter flowering annual for years but the flowers are also edible. The flower petals have a slightly green or grassy flavor. The petals are great in salads and soups. S unflowers, you know them for their distinctive large flowers that look great in your yard. These large colorful flowers are also edible. The flower is best when eaten in the bud stage that is described to have a taste similar to artichokes. Once the flowers are open, the taste can be very bitter. The buds can be steamed and used in many of your favorite dishes. W ith all these great flowers that are available for consumption I will caution that you should know where the flowers came from and if they have sprayed with any insecticides etc. before experimenting with them. Pr obably the best scenario is to grow the plants y ourself from seed. This way y ou know they have not been sprayed with any hazardous chemicals.

Congratulations to Jason Dufner on winning his first major and hoisting the Wannamaker Trophy. It was especially nice to see Dufner win this. Two y ears ago, he squandered a five shot lead over the final four holes and lost the PGA Championship in a playoff with Keegan Bradley. This y ear, as Dufner walked off the 18th green, Bradley was there to congratulate him and give him a huge hug. There is talk that the PGA of America, the governing body of the PGA Championship and organization r esponsible for club professionals across the United S tates, is considering moving its championship from August. The PGA of America may find itself in a bind in a few y ears when the PGA Championship, the Olympics in Br azil, and the Ryder Cup all fall within a few weeks of one another. One consideration is to move the championship to October. This would cause a bit of conflict with the PGA Tour and its F edEx Cup finale and the end of the Tour's season when players are trying to keep their cards for the next y ear. It would also mean chances of cold weather keeping the event from being held too far north. It bothers me enough that the World Series seems to fall later and later every y ear. I hate seeing baseball players wearing mittens, scarfs and wool beanies. I cannot imagine seeing golfers similarly attired while determining a major championship. The other majors are almost certain to not want to move or give up their spot. The green jackets in A ugusta depend on the beauty of the spring to showcase their fantastic course. The Masters isn't going anywhere else on the calendar. The Unites States Open has been a Fathers' Day w eekend staple for far too long to consider giving up its June slot. The Open Championship is the oldest of all the majors and any expectation that the Royal and Ancient would slide its championship to any month other than July is beyond silly. W ould the PGA of America consider moving its championship to before The M asters? I doubt the members of Augusta N ational could stop them, but being the first major of the year is a feather on their cap that they will not easily let go. Besides, holding a major golf tournament in Mar ch subjects you to the same cold weather problems you get in October. That leaves us with the possibility of a May date. Of course, the PGA Tour would certainly balk at moving its marquee event, The Players Championship, yet again. There was a time, not long ago, that The Players was held just a couple weeks before The Masters. It was moved to put this nearmajor in between The M asters and U.S. Open. So I have to ask you, my faithful readers, what you would do if you had to move the PGA Championship? By moving it later in the year, y ou can actually consider playing in places like F lorida, southern California, Arizona and the like. Even as hot as it can be up north in August, no one wants to play in Miami or Phoenix. In 1987 the PGA Championship was held at PGA N ational Resort and Spa in P alm Beach Gardens. Most of the field nearly melted in the oppressive heat. Larry N elson won the title in a playoff over Lanny Wadkins. The pair set a record for highest winning score, crushing the old record by five shots. Of those making the cut, only ten rounds in the 60s would be carded that week. There were 17 r ounds in the 80s. Do you think that the sweltering heat may have had something to do with it? I think the PGA of America has a conundrum. Moving the date for its championship seems like a great idea. They just have to figure out to when. Maybe bouncing it around the calendar is an option. One y ear it's in march or May, the next in September or O ctober. Personally, May seems like the best spot to me, even though it will certainly twist the knockers of the lads in Ponte Vedra. Later in the year just conflicts with too much unless it goes to being played over Labor Day w eekend. But that isn't much of a move. However, any later and between the F edEx Cup, the World Ser ies, and hockey and basketball seasons beginning, the PGA Championship could become lost in the shuffle. Of course, that may be just what the PGA Tour wants. That would allow the Tour to tout The Players as the 'true fourth major. Let me know what you would do. There are some fantastic courses in the deep south that could suddenly become an option for the PGA.
