By the time he got back, much of what he'd worked his life at building had been destroyed. "W e suffered a total loss," Mr. Hoover said. "W e had to start over and luckily the building next door was available." The new shop has a much more spacious interior, a larger waiting r oom and enough room for Mr. Hoover to display the many different speakers, stereo systems, tires and rims that are available at the shop. The store is loaded with more electronic devices that one can imagine. Each device can be installed into various modes of transportation. "I've hooked up fourwheelers, tractors and golf carts with and stereos," Mr. Hoover said. "If a customer can dream it, we do whatever we can to make that dream come true.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY E. Brett Culpepper, 65, of Po rt S t. Lucie, passed away on Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014. He was born in St. Petersburg on Dec.25, 1948, to the late Robert and Blanche C ulpepper. Brett graduated from St. Petersburg High School and received a degree in civil engineering from the University of Florida in 1971. He married Judy Fl ow ers Culpepper the following year on Sept. 23, 1972 and moved to Fort Pierce to begin his engineering career. Br ett was a professional engineer and professional land surveyor who began his career locally as an associate of Wood, Beard and Associates in 1972. In 1975 Br ett with two other partners bought Wood, Beard and Associates and formed CFS and Associates, consulting engineers and land surveyors. In the beginning, much of Br ett's work was in Palm B each County the most recognizable of which today is the city of Royal Palm B each. Early projects in St. L ucie County included O cean Village on Fort Pierce's south beach as well as all five of the Spanish Lakes communities. Working in conjunction with S tebbins and Scott architectural firm, Brett was also r esponsible for the civil engineering of several school construction projects in St. Lucie County. The firm continued to grow in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Then, after talking at a UF alumnae gathering in 1985, he and B utch Terpening decided to merge their firms and become Culpepper and Terpening. C ulpepper and Terpening continued to grow and prosper while changing the face of the Treasure Coast in the process. Culpepper and T erpening currently employs 40 people and serves 17 to 20 governments in Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties. In the 1990s, the firm helped expand Port St. L ucie's water and sewer system, an $81 million project that provides more than 820 miles of potable water and sewer installation that helped stimulate the city's unprecedented growth in the last decade. "B r ett Culpepper and his namesake firm played an important role in Port St. L ucie's water and sewer expansion program in the 1990s," said Donna Rhoden, public information manager in the city's Utility Systems Department. "His contributions helped the utility become one of the best in F lorida." Pa r kinson's disease forced Br ett to resign from his company in 1999. He was also a director of the St. Lucie County Chamber of Commerce GO Team, the predecessor of the Economic Development Council. Brett enjoyed golf, bridge, and Florida football. As an avid Florida fan, his love of the university was immortalized in the bricks of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Br ett leaves behind his wife of more than 41 years, J udy Culpepper, a former St. L ucie County Commissioner. He is survived by his three daughters and their spouses: Ceci and Nate Be rm an of Tampa; Kelly and Chris Bender of Plano, T exas; and Wendy Culpepper and Eric Mondschein of T ampa. Brett is also survived by four grandchildren: Pr esley and Heath Berman, and Katarina and Ava Bender. F or almost 26 years, Brett battled Parkinson's disease and lost that fight on Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014. He would have appreciated very much anyone willing to help in the fight against Pa r kinson's disease.

"I 'v e been in this location for five years, but I've been in the area since 1970," said R alph Fogg, owner of Ralph's P lace. "This is a great place to be. The weather is wonderful, the people are great and I wouldn't want to live and work in any other community." Br idging the gap between down payment and monthly payment is something that Mr. Fogg and his staff pride themselves on. "W e don't want someone to come in here and get in ov er their head," said James T aylor, credit manager. "We know times are tough and we know that everyone needs a vehicle to get around. We work with those who work with us. We try to work out a payment schedule that is convenient and also a payment amount that doesn't leave the customer in a bad situation." W ith more than 75 cars, trucks, vans and SUVs, there are plenty of vehicles to choose from. "W e have a wide assortment of vehicles," said Mr. F ogg while pointing toward a lot full of shiny, tuned-up cars and trucks. "I have a lot of small trucks and we make sure all of our vehicles have been looked over from head to toe. We do maintenance on the vehicle before it is set out on the lot. We take a lot of pride in the vehicles we sell." Each of the vehicles are inspected by mechanics on the lot. Mr. Fogg said that if a customer has an issue with his or her vehicle, they can bring it in to be serviced. "R alph is very caring and generous," Mr. Taylor said. "S ometimes, if there's a problem with a car, we can fix it on site and some r epairs can be put on a payment plan. We always try to work something out with the customer. Our main concern and goal is customer satisfaction." The laidback, friendly environment is sure to make something as stressful as buying a car a pain free experience. Mr. Fogg and Mr. Taylor are joined by Leo Gault in sales and Brian Ford, sales member and service manager. Each of the members of the team are friendly, caring and don't give customers a feeling of being hustled. "W e' ve all been doing this a long time and we know that a customer doesn't want to be smothered," Mr. T aylor said. "Buying a car is a big deal. We want the customer to know that they are in the right place and making the right decision." R alph's Place gives every customer peace of mind that that's exactly what they're doing.

It's a good time for papers in Florida to investigate where all of the money that the lottery brings in actually goes. There must be somebody taking from the pot. S omebody should look into this. Pray for less fortunateWe need to pray for those who are less fortunate and those who are homeless. We need to hope that we have more for our youth and that our leaders make the right decisions. What happened to quote?I don't know how an auto dealer can quote you one price when you're buying a car, and then give you another price when things are being finalized.Beware of bank rulesI just want to make everyone aware of something I didn't know and my bank did not tell me. When you have a CD (certificate of deposit) that is ready to roll over, if you don't tell the bank that you want the new higher interest rate, they will just roll over your CD with the same old low-interest you we re getting. We were not aware of this until someone pointed it out and have lost hundreds over the last couple y ears that my bank should have been paying to me. Y ears ago, it was automatic to roll over to the higher rate. S omehow they changed the rules and never told the customer. Public beware! Check everything, all your receipts, too, as the computers in the stores are also making mistakes, but not in your favor! Keep your eyes open! T oo many flaws in Medicaid systemThis is regarding Medicaid. My wife and I just got on M edicaid. We are taking care of our three grandchildren. I am in a program called "medically needy," which means I have to have medical bills that exceed $750 a month for me to be eligible. I am not currently working, and because I am sick. I unable to get a Medicaid number because my bills are not yet more than $750 a month, but the bills I have can't be taken care of because they don't meet the criteria. My wife makes $1,400 a month and our expenses are more than $1,600. I don't know where to turn.Tipping is getting out of handM any years ago, tipping used to be reserved mainly for sit-down restaurants. Now, it's everywhere: nail salons, hair salons, dog groomers, bars and donut shops, just to name a few. Now restaurants want you to tip for just preparing your food for takeout. R estaurants and other businesses should pay their waiters and waitresses a salary. It's not the patron's responsibility to support your employees. Ti pping has really gotten out of hand. I have never been in favor of tipping someone for providing good service. A part of customer service is providing excellent service to customers who might otherwise patronize a competitor. That's the American way! An order is placed, I prepare your food, now you not only ow e me for the food, but you owe me for handing it to you and being polite. There are many people in jobs who don't and can't ask or mandate that you tip them. If anyone should be owed a substantial tip, it's schoolteachers. They're underpaid and overworked. I notice parents don't even give their children's teachers a gift at holiday time anymore. Contrary to what society chooses to think, teaching is a job just like any other job. Mo r tgages have to be paid, if they can afford one. Car dealerships don't hand out free cars to teachers, and utility companies don't discount their utilities. Neither do grocery stores or clothing stores, the last time I checked. Mo re people are cooking at home rather than going out to eat. Employers, pay your employees a salary. If you can't afford to, then find another way to make a living. He r e's a tip: play the lottery, the same as many of us do or find another job where you don't have to rely on tips. I t's highway robbery. Sick of deadbeat dadI realize that in this day and age with the economy in the state it's in, everyone has something to complain about, the price of gas, the price of food, rising health costs, just to name a few. All these things affect me, but like many other women, I am also faced with the never-ending chore of trying to collect child support from my son's "deadbeat dad." Fo r years it's been a game of "catch me if you can," so I put the problem in the hands of court system to collect this debt. It 's of no surprise that they haven't been successful, either. It seems to me that they don't really try too hard. Most of the burden of information gathering lands right back in my lap. Y ou would think with the technology they have at their fingertips, they could find out where he's working or even if he's working. And if he works off the books, as I suspect is the case here, there should be another way of collecting this money. In my case, both I and my current husband are lucky enough to be working, but between his two kids and my one there isn't a spare penny to be had. I have a growing son who needs clothing, shoes, school supplies and other expenses. None of those expenses are being shared by his so-called father. If the system that we depend on to help us is ineffectual, then it needs to be fixed. Perhaps the people who are doing these jobs should find employment more suited to their talents, which are evidently slim to none. The only time we hear about how the state is going to crack down on "deadbeat dads" is during an election years. I heard it a year ago, but what happened?Downtown delightsI'm going to visit Fort Pierce's downtown shops and r estaurants more often! The owners and shopkeepers we re, without exception, friendly and accommodating. What I saw was attractive merchandise and appealing places to eat. I've lived here less than two years, but just learned yesterday that downtown Fort Pierce is a great place to shop.Fix the welfare systemI would like to know, as some others here, what is going on with the offices here? Why are so many illegal immigrants able to get food stamps and have Social Security cards, and get free stuff from this state? Why are we are taking care of people who sneak into the U.S. and we can't even take care of the people who were born here and work their whole life here? Then we have people who are on welfare who don't need to be on it at all. Are the people who work these jobs really checking the paperwork or just once in a while? If the immigrants want to stay, let them go through the right channels. The Social Security office should have a special card for immigrants to use, with pictures on them that they can't take off or change with someone. The same thing goes for the food stamp office. The office heads should get off their bottoms and do something about it. The offices should link together by computers, too. Why does the Social Security office issue new cards and numbers when someone loses theirs? They should look up the person on the file database before issuing new card, then issue a new one with the same number. There are some people with two or more Social Security cards. Then they head to food stamp office to get help with these new cards. There are so many Americans who need help in this area and can't get it because of this problem. The system we have is broken down, so, let's fix it now.A few questions Why is it that we don't have benches at bus stops, when the disabled, elderly and poor, are using them? Why can't they put a back-up battery for the traffic light clocks so that they will stay timed? All it takes is a small battery such as your alarm clock at home. This isn't rocket science.

C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. One of the questions that I am asked frequently has to do with the icons on the typical W indows desktop. "Aren't they slowing things down? I never use most of them; can't we get rid of them?" M ost of the icons on the average desktop are not slowing the computer down at all but are actually more like "speed dial" buttons on a phone. Most desktop icons are just shortcuts to programs buried deeper in the system and are on the desktop so you don't have to navigate through all sorts of menus to launch a program. If y ou look at the icons on y our desktop, you may notice that some icons have a little arrow in a little white box at the lower left corner of the icon. The arrow itself is kind of curvy and will point to the top right corner of the icon. You may also notice that other icons (like the C omputer icon, the User folder icon, the Recycle Bin, etc.) do not have the little arrow. There is a big difference between the two types of icons the icons with the little arrows are actually just shortcuts and not the actual program (or file). Shortcuts are really, really tiny and don't slow the computer down at all. "B ut what about the icons that don't have the little arrow? Are they safe to get rid of?" That question is a little harder to answer. You see, any icon on your computer that does not have the little shortcut indicator is either a user file or a system file and messing with it can cause problems. Icons on your desktop that are not shortcuts are either files that have been saved on the desktop or system files that have been set there by the operating system, and care should be taken when manipulating them. Another point that I want to make is that people have different ideas as to what the phrase "get rid of" means! When someone asks me to get rid of all of the unused icons on their desktop what they are invariably asking me to do is to delete them. If you have been reading my column for any length of time then you know how I feel about deleting things from your computer it's not something I do casually. In fact I have a saying, "if I were king I'd have the delete button stricken from the keyboard!" My idea of cleaning a Windows desktop by getting rid of" a bunch of stuff is not to delete everything but leans more in line with the phrase "out of sight, out of mind." People will watch with a puzzled look on their face as I create yet another icon on their desktop (a new folder), name it something like "Desktop Clutter" and then drag all of the unused icons into the new folder. Then, once the desktop is down to just the icons that actually get used, I drag the Desktop Clutter folder and drop it into the U sers folder. Then I usually spend the next ten minutes of so explaining why I went through all that trouble r ather than just deleting everything. My explanation r eally boils down to habit. One of the worst habits people get into with their machines is the habit of deleting stuff every time they tidy up. Sure it's great to have a tidy desktop but if you are in the habit of casually deleting stuff then eventually y ou are going to delete something you actually need. Even worse is the habit some people have of emptying the recycle bin every time they delete something. That's just a disaster waiting to happen. My philosophy is "out of sight, out of mind." Tidying up my system by sweeping a bunch of unused shortcuts (and actual files for that matter) into a folder and then moving the folder out of sight ensures that if I accidentally do "get rid of something" that I need, I can r ecover it easily enough by digging into the folder where I moved it. Does this mean that I am completely against deleting everything? Of course not. S ome things are indeed trash and I have no problem deleting them I just have a r eal problem with the habit of deleting things with barely a second thought. I've seen too many people delete their way into too many problems.

There's another very common trick that most dealers use that is equally prevalent, deceptive and called "dealer installed options". D ealer installed options are products that have very low cost and value that have huge markups. T ypically they are preinstalled on all of the dealer's cars in inventory, with the exception of a few "ad cars." These ad cars are ordered in small quantities, stripped of factory accessories and often without even an automatic transmission. They are typically ordered in the least desirable color and trim. The advertised car also either pays no commission to the salesman or a very small one. Typically only one car is available and when you ask to see it, the salesman will tell you that it's been sold. The advertisement will sometimes say, "Many cars are available at similar prices" or words to the effect that there is more than one, but they are all priced higher than the one car advertised. The dealers will put a stock number in the fine print. This is the stock number of the advertised car and is the dealer's defense for having only one car (which was just sold) at that low price. Ev en if you are able to read the fine print, seeing something like "#6339A" is not something that would give anyone a clue that this means there's only one car available at this price. I recently sent a mystery shopper in to investigate an advertisement by a S outh Florida dealer who was advertising a new 2014 To y ota Corolla for $14,988. The shopper was told by the salesman that this offer was for only one Corolla and it was a stick shift. When she asked to see the car, the salesman said the car was "unavailable". Then the salesman explained that all of their other Co r ollas had an additional charge of $897. This was for dealer installed options" consisting of pin stripes ($199), floor mats $299), and nitrogen in the tires ($399). The dealer's approximate cost for these items is about $100, about a 900 percent markup! There was also a charge of $24.99 for an "electronic filing fee" and $75 for a "T ag Agency Fee." These sound like state fees but they are not, only costs from subletting to outside private companies being passed along to the car buyer for more profit to the dealer. The bottom line is that the car advertised for $14,988 really cost $15,985, almost a thousand dollars more! What I've described above is the rule, not the exception, with most South F lorida car dealers. The only way to avoid this sort of thing is to insist on a bottom line price. The only charge you should pay in addition to an advertised or quoted price is state sales tax and fees for the license tag and registration. You can check with the Florida Department of Motor V ehicles to confirm what a tag and r egistration costs. C osts the dealer may claim he incurs for obtaining these like electronic filing fee" and "tag agency fee" are bogus charges which simply reimburse the dealer for his normal operating expenses. When you pay a dealer for his expenses, you are paying him a higher price and profit on the car. The law r equires that this be disclosed as a dealer fee and included in all advertised prices. As far as "dealer installed options" go, the safest bet is just don't buy them. Make it clear from the beginning that you insist that all options or accessories be factory installed. If a dealer won't agree to this, don't buy a car from him. If there is an option the factory doesn't offer that you want to buy, be extra careful to compare prices on that option with others who offer the same thing. The only reason dealers install options on cars is because they can mark them up exorbitantly as in the "900 percent" example above. Also, r emember that dealerinstalled options are not warranted by the manufacturer of the car and their quality is not as high. By getting at least three out-the-door prices on the exact same year, make, model car you want with identical MSRP's you are assured of getting a good price. Don't be fooled by dealer list" which many dealers quote you to make y ou think it's the manufacturer's suggested retail price, MSRP. Also, do the same thing with getting the best price on your trade-in and the best rate on your financing. S hop your trade-in just like y ou want to sell it without buying another car. Be sure y ou check interest rates with your bank or credit union and another bank just to be sure. ON CARSEARL STEWART

New Patients Only 781918 Love your heart in February and year-roundFebruary is dedicated to raising awareness to the number one killer of men and women in the United States, heart disease. It is most appropriate that it is aligned with the month most associated with love. Along with the pink and red boxes of candy and Valentine's Day cards, you will also notice messages about taking care of your heart, risk factors and symptoms. This February make sure that fluttering in your chest is for the one you love. Take a few minutes to learn your r isk factors and make a commitment to change those risk factors that you can directly impact. Make a y ear-long commitment to improving not only your heart health but the ones yo u love, too! The best way to avoid heart problems in the future is by adopting healthier habits today. While there are some risk factors that you cannot change, you can focus on those you can change. The first step to improving your heart health is knowing y our risk factors. Some risk factors are beyond your control: Age As men and women age, the risk of heart attack increases. Gender Men have a greater risk than women of having a heart attack. Family History of heart attack in grandparents, parents and siblings may increase your risk. Race African-Americans as well as American I ndians are more at risk than Caucasians for having heart disease. N ext, make a commitment to lifestyle changes that can improve the health of your heart. Choose a heart healthy diet full of whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Get active! Try incorpor ating 30 minutes of physical activity into your day. Of course, consult your doctor before starting a new routine. Quit smoking as this more than doubles your r isk of heart disease. Work toward achieving a healthy weight. Control your diabetes with a healthy diet, exercise and taking any prescription medication, if necessary. Manage your high blood pressure. Improve your numbers: Cholesterol should be less than 200 mg/dl total; over 40 mg/dl for the "good" HDL cholesterol; under 130 mg/dl for the LDL cholesterol. Learn how to manage stress. There are no guarantees that making these lifestyle changes will keep heart disease at bay; however, it will certainly improve your general health. This February, and all y ear long, make a commitment to your heart health. Although you may decide to give into the temptation to buy your loved one some r ich, delicious truffles, make sure his or her heart is ra cing only because of you. If y ou do have any medical concerns, contact your doctor. If you do not have a doctor, call(800) 382-3522 for a free physician referral or information.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY A ccording to the 2010 C ensus, more than 4 million children under age 18 are living in households headed by their grandparents. Locally, close to 3,000 grandparents are currently serving as primary guardians for their grandchildren. The Children's Se r vices Council of St. L ucie County understands how different the roles between parenting and grand parenting may be. B eginning March 4, the Children's Services Council of St. Lucie County is partnering with WellMed to bring the "Redirecting Children's Behavior" course to local families. These free classes will be offered every Tuesday morning from 9:30 a.m. 12:30 p.m. at the Children's Se r vices Council offices in S t. Lucie West. Grandparents who participate will enjoy highly interactive sessions that educate them about building self-esteem in their grandchildren, disciplining without yelling and developing mutual respect. RegST. LUCIE COUNTY In an effort to keep up with technology, the St. Lucie County Library System has added 300 new children's titles to its eBook collection. M ost suited for ages 3 12, these 300 new additions include popular children's titles such as The Berenstain B ears and Curious George series, as well as young adult titles, including the Witch & W izard Series by James Patterson. A recent study by Scholastic and the Harrison Group shows that the percent of children who have read an eBook has nearly doubled since 2010 (from 25 percent to 46 percent). Additionally, half of the children age 9-17 say they would read more books for fun, if they had greater access to eBooks (a 50 percent increase since 2010). F indings also reveal the potential for eBooks to motiv ate boys, who are more commonly known to be r eluctant readers, to read more. One in four boys who has read an eBook says he is now reading more books for fun. Locally, St. Lucie County's eBook readership mirrors the national tread. During fiscal y ear 2013, the library had more than 35,000 e-circulations. While the selections continues to grow, so do the number of check outs, as the C ounty is on track to double last year's e-circulation. If y ou are new to eBooks, stop by the Morningside Br anch Library's free E-Books D ecoded sessions on the first and third Friday of each month at 2 p.m. to learn how to gain access to St. Lucie C ounty's growing eBook collection. The Morningside Br anch is located at 2410 SE Mo r ningside Blvd., Port St. L ucie.

Why do I have to drive behind a car that has tint so dark that I can't see the brake lights of the car in front of them? That is the purpose of the high middle brake light. Why is it that in my house, with the air conditioning on, I can't hear my television in my bedroom in the back of the house because of loud car stereos? Why is it that people are setting off professional fireworks in their back yards?Even pet toys are foreign madeW ith all of the items being r ecalled from China, you can't be too safe. Since most of the items in the media are children's toys and my children are all grown and on their own, I should doublecheck all the items that I buy for my other children (Chihuahuas). I was in for a great surprise as my husband and I w ent from store to store and almost everything was stamped with Made in China. Fr om dog treats to dog toys, you are highly unlikely to find more than one item in each store that isn't made in China. After even asking for assistance from store clerks, we found that they we re as surprised as we we re that the items for our four legged loved ones, aren't American made either. What a wake-up call for an American who lives in the U.S.A, not to be able to purchase American-made products. I've never been so disappointed, to not find more than one item for our doggies that wasn't made in China. Liberal hypocrites?If liberals were true to their big government convictions, they would be sending stacks of their extra cash to the IRS to fund their bloated, inefficient government agencies and programs. That they don't, makes them hypocrites.Don't follow EuropeAs bad as our economy is with little job creation and high taxes, Europe's situation is worse. Government spending is leading several countries there into a tailspin. Government revenues are under performing while demands for government provided services are unabated. Government economists there are finally doing some soul searching, but the sad reality is that Eu ro pe is going to hell in a hand basket.

his commitment to recovering the historical and religious artifacts on board the sunken ship has not wavered. W ith records he uncovered from the Spanish government, Capt. Bob discovered that salvage ships brought up the treasure that was aboard the Maravillas. How ever, those ships, too, met their demise in the waters between the B ahamas and Florida. C apt. Bob believes that one of the ships' final resting places is in the waters of J uno beach and that is where he is centering his search. C apt. Bob, an ordained minister, feels the Madonna is buried in sand off the F lorida shoreline and is working to bring it back to S pain. The people of Spain deserve to have their M adonna back," Capt. Bob said. "It's not for fame or fortune, but for doing what's r ight." C apt. Bob was able to take some of the artifacts he r ecovered from the shipwreck of the Maravillas and show them to officials in S pain to indicate his seriousness of finding the artifact. F or his efforts, the King of S pain awarded him a commendation and he was made a knight in the Byzantine Order of the Holy Sepulchre in Malta. C aptain Bouchlas, author of a 700-page, three-volume book on his adventure, is sure that his quest for the M adonna will produce the artifact. Aside from not being able to acquire the necessary permits to salvage the site, Capt. B ob knows that several entities would claim ownership if the treasure were found. This is a battle. It seems that the importance of finding the religious artifact has been preempted by government red tape," Capt. Bob said. "I want to do what's r ight and I'm going to continue to fight until I can." C apt. Bob spoke with the public on Feb. 8 regarding his quest to find the Madonna. His expedition is far from ov er. While sitting among deep sea treasures, telling stories of adventure and mystery, Capt. Bob is fixated on discovering the hidden treasures that are buried deep in the Atlantic.

The smell of gyros is in the air, traditional music is being played and the community is invited to learn and enjoy Greek culture. S t. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church has been hosting its annual festival for 35 years, and in that time the event has expanded and developed into one of the most popular festivals of the year. Each year, about 11,000 people visit the festival," said Adam Black, event cochairman and vice president of the church. "It's great to have such a supportive community and to be part of such a great event. Each year we offer great Greek food and entertainment for old and y oung alike. There's something for everyone to do." This year's event will include a bounce house and bungee jump for children, a Greek coffee shop, live music and dancing, church tours, Greek beer, wine and ouzo, a Greek liqueur, arts and crafts and a raffle with cash prizes. "W e offer Greek specialties such as mouffaka, spanakopita, the everpopular gyros and pastries like baklava," Mr. Black said. "M any people come for the entertainment and for a chance to sit down and watch the dancers and listen to the music, while some come because they love the food and can't wait to have some of the authentic cuisine that is offered." The three-day event will offer a plethora of different ways to enjoy the Greek culture. While most will indulge in the sweet treats and savory dishes, there are a lot of people who enjoy the social aspect of the event. "M any people come and sit under the giant tent and reminisce about the memories that the food and music bring up," said Mr. Black. "This is a time for friends and families to gather and to enjoy the Greek culture. Not only is this a big community event, this is a huge event for the Greek community as well." The festival kicks off on Fe b. 21 and will run through Feb. 23. Gates are open from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and from 11 a.m. 7 p.m. on Sunday.

MARTIN COUNTY There will be music, entertainment, food and fun for all at the Martin County Fair, kicking off on Valentine's Day this year. It will be a week of thrilling r ides, savory cuisine, live music and of course livestock, because according to J ay Spicer, fair manager, that's r eally what separates the fair from any other festival. There will be plenty of food vendors selling everything from funnel cakes to frog legs, live animal showings, arts and crafts on display, agricultural education and plenty of midway rides and games. O ld favorites that fairgoers have come to love will still be there. The Railroad club will be displaying their cars and tracks, Miss and Mini Miss Ma r tin County will be crowned and more than 260 small animals will be poised and ready to be adored. B ut there will be plenty of new attractions to draw guests, too. "W e try to find something new each year that's different," Mr. Spicer said. There will be a petting zoo this year for kids of all ages to enjoy in addition to a Wolves of the World live show. In what Mr. Spicer calls the man cave" there will be a beer garden, beef jerky, fishing gear and more. There is even a new thrill ride called "V ertigo" that whisks riders through the air on swings 100-feet above the ground. "W e try to find something new each year that's different," Mr. Spicer said. A talent competition called "V ocal Extravaganza" is also new this year and the Barn Theatre will be offering a few preview numbers from their musical "Curtains" coming up in March. There's something for everybody," Mr. Spicer said. That includes music. This year's headliners include country singers Tyler F arr and Eric Paslay, who both have hit singles. Other groups like Joey Dee and the S tarlighters and Thunder R oad will be entertaining audiences as will local talent like Fresh Catch and 11-yearold, Eliza Levy. "W e try to keep new, fresh music every year. We don't want it to get stale," Mr. S picer said. There are also themed days that cater to specific groups. S enior Day is Tuesday and offers a kid-free atmosphere and vendors and music geared toward that age group. S unday is Faith Day and will offer lots of gospel and contemporary Christian music. On Monday, kids can snag an unlimited ride ticket for $15 and Friday and Saturday will be Soul Night and Latin N ight, respectively. It will be a full week of fun, according to Mr. Spicer. "J ust like Disney World, it takes more than one day to see and enjoy everything," Mr. Spicer said. "Come find y our fun at the fair."

Agreat way to start fixing up your outdoor space for spring is to install a backyard or deck fountain. There are many types of fountains you can utilize and you are only limited by your imagination. You can buy a readymade fountain kit, which are available at most home improvement stores, or you can opt to build one y ourself. F ountains can add charm and character to almost any landscape. The sound of r unning water has long been a great way to create a r elaxing space you can enjoy, especially after a hard day at the office. To me, one of the most relaxing experiences is eating dinner on our deck at twilight while viewing and listening to our r ock waterfall fountain. It gives our deck a feel like you eating at a quaint Key West r estaurant. The first thing to think about is where you want to locate your fountain. If you have a deck, this is a great location and the added advantage is that an electric outlet is close at hand. If y ou decide to install your fountain in your yard, you will need to have a power source installed to operate y our fountain. You will need to run your electric cable through impact resistant plastic conduit laid in a trench in soil or sand. It is r ecommended you have the power source installed by a qualified electrician. There are also solar pumps that are available if you install y our fountain in a full sun environment. The next thing you need to consider is what type of fountain or pond you want to install. You can use a kit or you can buy your pump and tubing separate and get creative. You can use an old galvanized tub, an old hand water pump or almost any container that can hold water. I have even seen fountains made from flowerpots. My favorite is a fountain made from rocks or a simulated rock fountain made from resin. M ost fountain pumps are similar in the way they operate however there are several sizes available depending on how much water flow you will need. S ubmersible pumps are safe to use if they are properly installed and operated. Once you have all your parts, simply build your fountain, install the pump and tubing and you are r eady to enjoy! Your fountain pumps will last for many years if you take care not to run your pumps when the water levels are too low. No w that you have your fountain installed, the next step is to create your landscaping design around the fountain. Most fountains will look best if they are nestled inside a canopy of tropicals. There are a number of choices you can use to create your space including areca palms, r ubber plants, marginatas, and majesty palms. If you are using a rock or other type of waterfall fountain, y ou might want to place a few of the higher areca palms or majesty palms in the rear part of the fountain then use some mid-height tropicals such as marginata or the plants on the side areas of the fountain. You can then use some liriope, mondo grass, or another choice of low growing plants around the front of the fountain. This type of setup will create a step effect with the higher plants to the rear of the fountain and lower plants toward the front of the fountain. This effect is r eally intense if you install y our fountain in a corner area on your deck. If you install your fountain in your yard, you can surround it with seasonal flowers to create a great space to get away from the daily stresses of everyday life. In short, you can make y our project as simple or as involved as you want but the end result will be satisfying no matter which course you take. So go ahead and dig in today and start relaxing tomorrow! J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

The week of the PGA Me r chandise Show in Orlando is a bit crazy. We the media, try to cram as much work and play in as possible. Our quest is to find out as much about the newest equipment, swing aids, and more as possible so that we can make you, our readers, a more informed customer. My w eek started out at the T our Edge Media Demo Day. F or many years now, I have started my week off at this event, and I have to say, it's a great way to begin the w eek. Tour Edge is joined by several other companies who want to get their products to us to try firsthand. I am convinced one of the best advancements in r ecent club design is the ability for the consumer to change the loft, lie, and even the weight configuration on their driver. There was a time when one would go to find a driver that they could hit and you would spend all kinds of time looking for the r ight loft with the right shaft and more. Now, you can switch out the shaft and change the loft and lie with the use of a simple tool. It's made club-fitting so much easier. T our Edge's new line of clubs was what I had the chance to test out that day. The new XCG7 Driver and F airway Woods are true w eapons. I hit a few balls, answered a few questions, and within a couple adjustments I was hitting bombs, straight down the driving ra nge. If I want to change my ball flight any, the driver adjusts from 8.5 to 12.0degrees of loft. I can even set the lie to open, square or closed. Since I don't swing the same from one round to the next, being able to tweak my driver to match my swing of the day, is a god-send. The jewel of the new Ex otics lineup is the CB PRO fairway wood. This club combines a smaller head size with a revolutionary S lip Stream Sole to create the ultimate fairway wood for accomplished players. I found that the size really appeals to my eye, and the boring ball flight is perfect for windy Florida afternoons. Even with my humble 10-handicap swing it works quite well. There are a few new sets of irons in the Exotics line as w ell. The XCG7 has all the technological bells and whistles, with a pleasing top line that is all you see at address. One thing that I have noticed in the last year and especially at the show this y ear is that irons are becoming much easier to hit. The new Exotics CB PROh iron set is a hybrid iron set that combines two distinctive designs that deliver distance and accuracy. The long and mid irons are a full-hollow design combined with a thin forged face that creates an extremely high C.O.R. And a soft, responsive feel. I haven't hit many long irons as I carry a hybrid or three in my bag. I was impressed at how easy these long irons we re to hit. In the short irons, the CB PROh incorporates a cavity blade design for precision and trajectory control. M ade from soft 431 stainless steel and featuring a multimaterial vibration dampening plaque for feel and control, these irons are a must-try." T our Edge's Bazooka line of hybrids continues to be one of the best-selling lines in golf. The new Bazooka M ax D-45 drivers and fairways promise to add more weapons to your bag. After hitting the Bazooka M ax D-45 irons, you too will gain an appreciation for what the new technology has done for irons. W ith a 30-day "no questions asked" play guarantee, there is no reason to not try any of the Tour Edge or Ex otics clubs.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY Several local couples will share Valentines D ay nuptials during a joint ceremony performed by Clerk Joe S mith. Tw enty lovebirds are being given the opportunity to get married at the clerks annual group wedding ceremony at Fairwinds Golf Course in Fort Pierce. A wedding cake, roses, floral arrangements, hors d'oeuvres, and photography are among the many services being donated by businesses. I t s great to see the community come together to support such a wonderful event, said Clerk Smith. Their involvement provides a ceremony some couples would not be able to have otherwise and allows them to fully enjoy the happiest day of their lives. Tw elve years ago, Aundrea Wilks and Lavoris Hair, friends from high school, started dating. Though they have considered themselves marr ied for a while now, they decided to make things official on Valentines Day. W e ve been planning to get marr ied for some time now, Ms. Wilks said. Were really excited to be a part of the ceremony. We v e done lots of preparation and think this is perfect timing. F or April Symonds and Antonio Fields, this wedding ceremony is the final piece to their journey. W e ve been together for about two years now and Antonio asked me to marry him on the day our daughter was born in March last year, Ms. S ymonds said. She will be a year old next month and this is perfect. Were r eally excited to get marr ied and were getting the final things taken care of, but were soCouples to wed at ceremony 087582 LMTs WantedGift Certificates Av ailable Some options are really not options at all EARL STEWARTA7 OPTIONS?

"I've hooked up fourwheelers, tractors and golf carts with and stereos," Mr. Hoover said. "If a customer can dream it, we do whatever we can to make that dream come true.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY E. Brett Culpepper, 65, of Po rt S t. Lucie, passed away on Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014. He was born in St. Petersburg on Dec.25, 1948, to the late Robert and Blanche C ulpepper. Brett graduated from St. Petersburg High School and received a degree in civil engineering from the University of Florida in 1971. He married Judy Fl ow ers Culpepper the following year on Sept. 23, 1972 and moved to Fort Pierce to begin his engineering career. Br ett was a professional engineer and professional land surveyor who began his career locally as an associate of Wood, Beard and Associates in 1972. In 1975 Br ett with two other partners bought Wood, Beard and Associates and formed CFS and Associates, consulting engineers and land surveyors. In the beginning, much of Br etts work was in Palm B each County the most recognizable of which today is the city of Royal Palm B each. Early projects in St. L ucie County included O cean Village on Fort Pierces south beach as well as all five of the Spanish Lakes communities. Working in conjunction with S tebbins and Scott architectural firm, Brett was also r esponsible for the civil engineering of several school construction projects in St. Lucie County. The firm continued to grow in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Then, after talking at a UF alumnae gathering in 1985, he and B utch Terpening decided to merge their firms and become Culpepper and Terpening. C ulpepper and Terpening continued to grow and prosper while changing the face of the Treasure Coast in the process. Culpepper and T erpening currently employs 40 people and serves 17 to 20 governments in Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties. In the 1990s, the firm helped expand Port St. L ucies water and sewer system, an $81 million project that provides more than 820 miles of potable water and sewer installation that helped stimulate the citys unprecedented growth in the last decade. Brett Culpepper and his namesake firm played an important role in Port St. L ucies water and sewer expansion program in the 1990s, said Donna Rhoden, public information manager in the citys Utility Systems Department. His contributions helped the utility become one of the best in F lorida. Par kinsons disease forced Br ett to resign from his company in 1999. He was also a director of the St. Lucie County Chamber of Commerce GO Team, the predecessor of the Economic Development Council. Brett enjoyed golf, bridge, and Florida football. As an avid Florida fan, his love of the university was immortalized in the bricks of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Br ett leaves behind his wife of more than 41 years, J udy Culpepper, a former St. L ucie County Commissioner. He is survived by his three daughters and their spouses: Ceci and Nate Be rm an of Tampa; Kelly and Chris Bender of Plano, T exas; and Wendy Culpepper and Eric Mondschein of T ampa. Brett is also survived by four grandchildren: Pr esley and Heath Berman, and Katarina and Ava Bender. F or almost 26 years, Brett battled Parkinsons disease and lost that fight on Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014. He would have appreciated very much anyone willing to help in the fight against Par kinsons disease.

I v e been in this location for five years, but Ive been in the area since 1970, said R alph Fogg, owner of Ralphs P lace. This is a great place to be. The weather is wonderful, the people are great and I wouldnt want to live and work in any other community. Br idging the gap between down payment and monthly payment is something that Mr. Fogg and his staff pride themselves on. W e dont want someone to come in here and get in ov er their head, said James T aylor, credit manager. We know times are tough and we know that everyone needs a vehicle to get around. We work with those who work with us. We try to work out a payment schedule that is convenient and also a payment amount that doesnt leave the customer in a bad situation. W ith more than 75 cars, trucks, vans and SUVs, there are plenty of vehicles to choose from. W e have a wide assortment of vehicles, said Mr. F ogg while pointing toward a lot full of shiny, tuned-up cars and trucks. I have a lot of small trucks and we make sure all of our vehicles have been looked over from head to toe. We do maintenance on the vehicle before it is set out on the lot. We take a lot of pride in the vehicles we sell. Each of the vehicles are inspected by mechanics on the lot. Mr. Fogg said that if a customer has an issue with his or her vehicle, they can bring it in to be serviced. R alph is very caring and generous, Mr. Taylor said. S ometimes, if theres a problem with a car, we can fix it on site and some r epairs can be put on a payment plan. We always try to work something out with the customer. Our main concern and goal is customer satisfaction. The laidback, friendly environment is sure to make something as stressful as buying a car a pain free experience. Mr. Fogg and Mr. Taylor are joined by Leo Gault in sales and Brian Ford, sales member and service manager. Each of the members of the team are friendly, caring and dont give customers a feeling of being hustled. W e ve all been doing this a long time and we know that a customer doesnt want to be smothered, Mr. T aylor said. Buying a car is a big deal. We want the customer to know that they are in the right place and making the right decision. R alphs Place gives every customer peace of mind that thats exactly what theyre doing.

Its a good time for papers in Florida to investigate where all of the money that the lottery brings in actually goes. There must be somebody taking from the pot. S omebody should look into this. Pray for less fortunateWe need to pray for those who are less fortunate and those who are homeless. We need to hope that we have more for our youth and that our leaders make the right decisions. What happened to quote?I dont know how an auto dealer can quote you one price when youre buying a car, and then give you another price when things are being finalized.Beware of bank rulesI just want to make everyone aware of something I didnt know and my bank did not tell me. When you have a CD (certificate of deposit) that is ready to roll over, if you dont tell the bank that you want the new higher interest rate, they will just roll over your CD with the same old low-interest you we re getting. We were not aware of this until someone pointed it out and have lost hundreds over the last couple y ears that my bank should have been paying to me. Y ears ago, it was automatic to roll over to the higher rate. S omehow they changed the rules and never told the customer. Public beware! Check everything, all your receipts, too, as the computers in the stores are also making mistakes, but not in your favor! Keep your eyes open! T oo many flaws in Medicaid systemThis is regarding Medicaid. My wife and I just got on M edicaid. We are taking care of our three grandchildren. I am in a program called medically needy, which means I have to have medical bills that exceed $750 a month for me to be eligible. I am not currently working, and because I am sick. I unable to get a Medicaid number because my bills are not yet more than $750 a month, but the bills I have cant be taken care of because they dont meet the criteria. My wife makes $1,400 a month and our expenses are more than $1,600. I dont know where to turn.Tipping is getting out of handM any years ago, tipping used to be reserved mainly for sit-down restaurants. Now, it's everywhere: nail salons, hair salons, dog groomers, bars and donut shops, just to name a few. Now restaurants want you to tip for just preparing your food for takeout. R estaurants and other businesses should pay their waiters and waitresses a salary. It's not the patron's responsibility to support your employees. Ti pping has really gotten out of hand. I have never been in favor of tipping someone for providing good service. A part of customer service is providing excellent service to customers who might otherwise patronize a competitor. That's the American way! An order is placed, I prepare your food, now you not only ow e me for the food, but you owe me for handing it to you and being polite. There are many people in jobs who don't and can't ask or mandate that you tip them. If anyone should be owed a substantial tip, it's schoolteachers. They're underpaid and overworked. I notice parents don't even give their children's teachers a gift at holiday time anymore. Contrary to what society chooses to think, teaching is a job just like any other job. Mor tgages have to be paid, if they can afford one. Car dealerships don't hand out free cars to teachers, and utility companies don't discount their utilities. Neither do grocery stores or clothing stores, the last time I checked. Mo re people are cooking at home rather than going out to eat. Employers, pay your employees a salary. If you can't afford to, then find another way to make a living. Her e's a tip: play the lottery, the same as many of us do or find another job where you don't have to rely on tips. I t's highway robbery. Sick of deadbeat dadI realize that in this day and age with the economy in the state its in, everyone has something to complain about, the price of gas, the price of food, rising health costs, just to name a few. All these things affect me, but like many other women, I am also faced with the never-ending chore of trying to collect child support from my sons deadbeat dad. Fo r years its been a game of catch me if you can, so I put the problem in the hands of court system to collect this debt. It s of no surprise that they havent been successful, either. It seems to me that they dont really try too hard. Most of the burden of information gathering lands right back in my lap. Y ou would think with the technology they have at their fingertips, they could find out where hes working or even if hes working. And if he works off the books, as I suspect is the case here, there should be another way of collecting this money. In my case, both I and my current husband are lucky enough to be working, but between his two kids and my one there isnt a spare penny to be had. I have a growing son who needs clothing, shoes, school supplies and other expenses. None of those expenses are being shared by his so-called father. If the system that we depend on to help us is ineffectual, then it needs to be fixed. Perhaps the people who are doing these jobs should find employment more suited to their talents, which are evidently slim to none. The only time we hear about how the state is going to crack down on deadbeat dads is during an election years. I heard it a year ago, but what happened?Downtown delightsI'm going to visit Fort Pierce's downtown shops and r estaurants more often! The owners and shopkeepers we re, without exception, friendly and accommodating. What I saw was attractive merchandise and appealing places to eat. I've lived here less than two years, but just learned yesterday that downtown Fort Pierce is a great place to shop.Fix the welfare systemI would like to know, as some others here, what is going on with the offices here? Why are so many illegal immigrants able to get food stamps and have Social Security cards, and get free stuff from this state? Why are we are taking care of people who sneak into the U.S. and we can't even take care of the people who were born here and work their whole life here? Then we have people who are on welfare who don't need to be on it at all. Are the people who work these jobs really checking the paperwork or just once in a while? If the immigrants want to stay, let them go through the right channels. The Social Security office should have a special card for immigrants to use, with pictures on them that they can't take off or change with someone. The same thing goes for the food stamp office. The office heads should get off their bottoms and do something about it. The offices should link together by computers, too. Why does the Social Security office issue new cards and numbers when someone loses theirs? They should look up the person on the file database before issuing new card, then issue a new one with the same number. There are some people with two or more Social Security cards. Then they head to food stamp office to get help with these new cards. There are so many Americans who need help in this area and can't get it because of this problem. The system we have is broken down, so, let's fix it now.A few questions Why is it that we dont have benches at bus stops, when the disabled, elderly and poor, are using them? Why cant they put a back-up battery for the traffic light clocks so that they will stay timed? All it takes is a small battery such as your alarm clock at home. This isnt rocket science. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail news@hometownnewsol.com. C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. One of the questions that I am asked frequently has to do with the icons on the typical W indows desktop. Arent they slowing things down? I never use most of them; cant we get rid of them? M ost of the icons on the average desktop are not slowing the computer down at all but are actually more like speed dial buttons on a phone. Most desktop icons are just shortcuts to programs buried deeper in the system and are on the desktop so you dont have to navigate through all sorts of menus to launch a program. If you look at the icons on y our desktop, you may notice that some icons have a little arrow in a little white box at the lower left corner of the icon. The arrow itself is kind of curvy and will point to the top right corner of the icon. You may also notice that other icons (like the C omputer icon, the User folder icon, the Recycle Bin, etc.) do not have the little arrow. There is a big difference between the two types of icons the icons with the little arrows are actually just shortcuts and not the actual program (or file). Shortcuts are really, really tiny and dont slow the computer down at all. B ut what about the icons that dont have the little arrow? Are they safe to get rid of? That question is a little harder to answer. You see, any icon on your computer that does not have the little shortcut indicator is either a user file or a system file and messing with it can cause problems. Icons on your desktop that are not shortcuts are either files that have been saved on the desktop or system files that have been set there by the operating system, and care should be taken when manipulating them. Another point that I want to make is that people have different ideas as to what the phrase get rid of means! When someone asks me to get rid of all of the unused icons on their desktop what they are invariably asking me to do is to delete them. If you have been reading my column for any length of time then you know how I feel about deleting things from your computer its not something I do casually. In fact I have a saying, if I were king Id have the delete button stricken from the keyboard! My idea of cleaning a Windows desktop by getting rid of a bunch of stuff is not to delete everything but leans more in line with the phrase out of sight, out of mind. People will watch with a puzzled look on their face as I create yet another icon on their desktop (a new folder), name it something like Desktop Clutter and then drag all of the unused icons into the new folder. Then, once the desktop is down to just the icons that actually get used, I drag the Desktop Clutter folder and drop it into the U sers folder. Then I usually spend the next ten minutes of so explaining why I went through all that trouble r ather than just deleting everything. My explanation r eally boils down to habit. One of the worst habits people get into with their machines is the habit of deleting stuff every time they tidy up. Sure its great to have a tidy desktop but if you are in the habit of casually deleting stuff then eventually y ou are going to delete something you actually need. Even worse is the habit some people have of emptying the recycle bin every time they delete something. Thats just a disaster waiting to happen. My philosophy is out of sight, out of mind. Tidying up my system by sweeping a bunch of unused shortcuts (and actual files for that matter) into a folder and then moving the folder out of sight ensures that if I accidentally do get rid of something that I need, I can r ecover it easily enough by digging into the folder where I moved it. Does this mean that I am completely against deleting everything? Of course not. S ome things are indeed trash and I have no problem deleting them I just have a r eal problem with the habit of deleting things with barely a second thought. Ive seen too many people delete their way into too many problems.

Theres another very common trick that most dealers use that is equally prevalent, deceptive and called dealer installed options. D ealer installed options are products that have very low cost and value that have huge markups. T ypically they are preinstalled on all of the dealers cars in inventory, with the exception of a few ad cars. These ad cars are ordered in small quantities, stripped of factory accessories and often without even an automatic transmission. They are typically ordered in the least desirable color and trim. The advertised car also either pays no commission to the salesman or a very small one. Typically only one car is available and when you ask to see it, the salesman will tell you that its been sold. The advertisement will sometimes say, Many cars are available at similar prices or words to the effect that there is more than one, but they are all priced higher than the one car advertised. The dealers will put a stock number in the fine print. This is the stock number of the advertised car and is the dealers defense for having only one car (which was just sold) at that low price. Ev en if you are able to read the fine print, seeing something like #6339A is not something that would give anyone a clue that this means theres only one car available at this price. I recently sent a mystery shopper in to investigate an advertisement by a S outh Florida dealer who was advertising a new 2014 Toy ota Corolla for $14,988. The shopper was told by the salesman that this offer was for only one Corolla and it was a stick shift. When she asked to see the car, the salesman said the car was unavailable. Then the salesman explained that all of their other Cor ollas had an additional charge of $897. This was for dealer installed options consisting of pin stripes ($199), floor mats $299), and nitrogen in the tires ($399). The dealers approximate cost for these items is about $100, about a 900 percent markup! There was also a charge of $24.99 for an electronic filing fee and $75 for a T ag Agency Fee. These sound like state fees but they are not, only costs from subletting to outside private companies being passed along to the car buyer for more profit to the dealer. The bottom line is that the car advertised for $14,988 really cost $15,985, almost a thousand dollars more! What Ive described above is the rule, not the exception, with most South F lorida car dealers. The only way to avoid this sort of thing is to insist on a bottom line price. The only charge you should pay in addition to an advertised or quoted price is state sales tax and fees for the license tag and registration. You can check with the Florida Department of Motor V ehicles to confirm what a tag and r egistration costs. C osts the dealer may claim he incurs for obtaining these like electronic filing fee and tag agency fee are bogus charges which simply reimburse the dealer for his normal operating expenses. When you pay a dealer for his expenses, you are paying him a higher price and profit on the car. The law r equires that this be disclosed as a dealer fee and included in all advertised prices. As far as dealer installed options go, the safest bet is just dont buy them. Make it clear from the beginning that you insist that all options or accessories be factory installed. If a dealer wont agree to this, dont buy a car from him. If there is an option the factory doesnt offer that you want to buy, be extra careful to compare prices on that option with others who offer the same thing. The only reason dealers install options on cars is because they can mark them up exorbitantly as in the percent example above. Also, r emember that dealerinstalled options are not warranted by the manufacturer of the car and their quality is not as high. By getting at least three out-the-door prices on the exact same year, make, model car you want with identical MSRPs you are assured of getting a good price. Dont be fooled by dealer list which many dealers quote you to make y ou think its the manufacturers suggested retail price, MSRP. Also, do the same thing with getting the best price on your trade-in and the best rate on your financing. S hop your trade-in just like y ou want to sell it without buying another car. Be sure y ou check interest rates with your bank or credit union and another bank just to be sure. ON CARSEARL STEWART

ST. LUCIE COUNTY A ccording to the 2010 C ensus, more than 4 million children under age 18 are living in households headed by their grandparents. Locally, close to 3,000 grandparents are currently serving as primary guardians for their grandchildren. The Childrens Ser vices Council of St. L ucie County understands how different the roles between parenting and grand parenting may be. B eginning March 4, the Childrens Services Council of St. Lucie County is partnering with WellMed to bring the Redirecting Childrens Behavior course to local families. These free classes will be offered every Tuesday morning from 9:30 a.m. 12:30 p.m. at the Childrens Ser vices Council offices in S t. Lucie West. Grandparents who participate will enjoy highly interactive sessions that educate them about building self-esteem in their grandchildren, disciplining without yelling and developing mutual respect. RegST. LUCIE COUNTY In an effort to keep up with technology, the St. Lucie County Library System has added 300 new childrens titles to its eBook collection. M ost suited for ages 3 12, these 300 new additions include popular childrens titles such as The Berenstain B ears and Curious George series, as well as young adult titles, including the Witch & W izard Series by James Patterson. A recent study by Scholastic and the Harrison Group shows that the percent of children who have read an eBook has nearly doubled since 2010 (from 25 percent to 46 percent). Additionally, half of the children age 9-17 say they would read more books for fun, if they had greater access to eBooks (a 50 percent increase since 2010). F indings also reveal the potential for eBooks to motiv ate boys, who are more commonly known to be r eluctant readers, to read more. One in four boys who has read an eBook says he is now reading more books for fun. Locally, St. Lucie Countys eBook readership mirrors the national tread. During fiscal y ear 2013, the library had more than 35,000 e-circulations. While the selections continues to grow, so do the number of check outs, as the C ounty is on track to double last years e-circulation. If you are new to eBooks, stop by the Morningside Br anch Librarys free E-Books D ecoded sessions on the first and third Friday of each month at 2 p.m. to learn how to gain access to St. Lucie C ountys growing eBook collection. The Morningside Br anch is located at 2410 SE Mor ningside Blvd., Port St. L ucie.

Why do I have to drive behind a car that has tint so dark that I cant see the brake lights of the car in front of them? That is the purpose of the high middle brake light. Why is it that in my house, with the air conditioning on, I cant hear my television in my bedroom in the back of the house because of loud car stereos? Why is it that people are setting off professional fireworks in their back yards?Even pet toys are foreign madeW ith all of the items being r ecalled from China, you can't be too safe. Since most of the items in the media are children's toys and my children are all grown and on their own, I should doublecheck all the items that I buy for my other children (Chihuahuas). I was in for a great surprise as my husband and I w ent from store to store and almost everything was stamped with Made in China. Fr om dog treats to dog toys, you are highly unlikely to find more than one item in each store that isn't made in China. After even asking for assistance from store clerks, we found that they we re as surprised as we we re that the items for our four legged loved ones, aren't American made either. What a wake-up call for an American who lives in the U.S.A, not to be able to purchase American-made products. I've never been so disappointed, to not find more than one item for our doggies that wasn't made in China. Liberal hypocrites?If liberals were true to their big government convictions, they would be sending stacks of their extra cash to the IRS to fund their bloated, inefficient government agencies and programs. That they don't, makes them hypocrites.Dont follow EuropeAs bad as our economy is with little job creation and high taxes, Europe's situation is worse. Government spending is leading several countries there into a tailspin. Government revenues are under performing while demands for government provided services are unabated. Government economists there are finally doing some soul searching, but the sad reality is that Eu ro pe is going to hell in a hand basket.

his commitment to recovering the historical and religious artifacts on board the sunken ship has not wavered. W ith records he uncovered from the Spanish government, Capt. Bob discovered that salvage ships brought up the treasure that was aboard the Maravillas. How ever, those ships, too, met their demise in the waters between the B ahamas and Florida. C apt. Bob believes that one of the ships final resting places is in the waters of J uno beach and that is where he is centering his search. C apt. Bob, an ordained minister, feels the Madonna is buried in sand off the F lorida shoreline and is working to bring it back to S pain. The people of Spain deserve to have their M adonna back, Capt. Bob said. Its not for fame or fortune, but for doing whats r ight. C apt. Bob was able to take some of the artifacts he r ecovered from the shipwreck of the Maravillas and show them to officials in S pain to indicate his seriousness of finding the artifact. F or his efforts, the King of S pain awarded him a commendation and he was made a knight in the Byzantine Order of the Holy Sepulchre in Malta. C aptain Bouchlas, author of a 700-page, three-volume book on his adventure, is sure that his quest for the M adonna will produce the artifact. Aside from not being able to acquire the necessary permits to salvage the site, Capt. B ob knows that several entities would claim ownership if the treasure were found. This is a battle. It seems that the importance of finding the religious artifact has been preempted by government red tape, Capt. Bob said. I want to do whats r ight and Im going to continue to fight until I can. C apt. Bob spoke with the public on Feb. 8 regarding his quest to find the Madonna. His expedition is far from ov er. While sitting among deep sea treasures, telling stories of adventure and mystery, Capt. Bob is fixated on discovering the hidden treasures that are buried deep in the Atlantic.

The smell of gyros is in the air, traditional music is being played and the community is invited to learn and enjoy Greek culture. S t. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church has been hosting its annual festival for 35 years, and in that time the event has expanded and developed into one of the most popular festivals of the year. Each year, about 11,000 people visit the festival, said Adam Black, event cochairman and vice president of the church. Its great to have such a supportive community and to be part of such a great event. Each year we offer great Greek food and entertainment for old and y oung alike. Theres something for everyone to do. This years event will include a bounce house and bungee jump for children, a Greek coffee shop, live music and dancing, church tours, Greek beer, wine and ouzo, a Greek liqueur, arts and crafts and a raffle with cash prizes. W e offer Greek specialties such as mouffaka, spanakopita, the everpopular gyros and pastries like baklava, Mr. Black said. M any people come for the entertainment and for a chance to sit down and watch the dancers and listen to the music, while some come because they love the food and cant wait to have some of the authentic cuisine that is offered. The three-day event will offer a plethora of different ways to enjoy the Greek culture. While most will indulge in the sweet treats and savory dishes, there are a lot of people who enjoy the social aspect of the event. M any people come and sit under the giant tent and reminisce about the memories that the food and music bring up, said Mr. Black. This is a time for friends and families to gather and to enjoy the Greek culture. Not only is this a big community event, this is a huge event for the Greek community as well. The festival kicks off on Fe b. 21 and will run through Feb. 23. Gates are open from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and from 11 a.m. 7 p.m. on Sunday.

Agreat way to start fixing up your outdoor space for spring is to install a backyard or deck fountain. There are many types of fountains you can utilize and you are only limited by your imagination. You can buy a readymade fountain kit, which are available at most home improvement stores, or you can opt to build one y ourself. F ountains can add charm and character to almost any landscape. The sound of r unning water has long been a great way to create a r elaxing space you can enjoy, especially after a hard day at the office. To me, one of the most relaxing experiences is eating dinner on our deck at twilight while viewing and listening to our r ock waterfall fountain. It gives our deck a feel like you eating at a quaint Key West r estaurant. The first thing to think about is where you want to locate your fountain. If you have a deck, this is a great location and the added advantage is that an electric outlet is close at hand. If y ou decide to install your fountain in your yard, you will need to have a power source installed to operate y our fountain. You will need to run your electric cable through impact resistant plastic conduit laid in a trench in soil or sand. It is r ecommended you have the power source installed by a qualified electrician. There are also solar pumps that are available if you install y our fountain in a full sun environment. The next thing you need to consider is what type of fountain or pond you want to install. You can use a kit or you can buy your pump and tubing separate and get creative. You can use an old galvanized tub, an old hand water pump or almost any container that can hold water. I have even seen fountains made from flowerpots. My favorite is a fountain made from rocks or a simulated rock fountain made from resin. M ost fountain pumps are similar in the way they operate however there are several sizes available depending on how much water flow you will need. S ubmersible pumps are safe to use if they are properly installed and operated. Once you have all your parts, simply build your fountain, install the pump and tubing and you are r eady to enjoy! Your fountain pumps will last for many years if you take care not to run your pumps when the water levels are too low. Now that you have your fountain installed, the next step is to create your landscaping design around the fountain. Most fountains will look best if they are nestled inside a canopy of tropicals. There are a number of choices you can use to create your space including areca palms, r ubber plants, marginatas, and majesty palms. If you are using a rock or other type of waterfall fountain, y ou might want to place a few of the higher areca palms or majesty palms in the rear part of the fountain then use some mid-height tropicals such as marginata or the plants on the side areas of the fountain. You can then use some liriope, mondo grass, or another choice of low growing plants around the front of the fountain. This type of setup will create a step effect with the higher plants to the rear of the fountain and lower plants toward the front of the fountain. This effect is r eally intense if you install y our fountain in a corner area on your deck. If you install your fountain in your yard, you can surround it with seasonal flowers to create a great space to get away from the daily stresses of everyday life. In short, you can make y our project as simple or as involved as you want but the end result will be satisfying no matter which course you take. So go ahead and dig in today and start relaxing tomorrow! J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

The week of the PGA Mer chandise Show in Orlando is a bit crazy. We the media, try to cram as much work and play in as possible. Our quest is to find out as much about the newest equipment, swing aids, and more as possible so that we can make you, our readers, a more informed customer. My w eek started out at the T our Edge Media Demo Day. F or many years now, I have started my week off at this event, and I have to say, it's a great way to begin the w eek. Tour Edge is joined by several other companies who want to get their products to us to try firsthand. I am convinced one of the best advancements in r ecent club design is the ability for the consumer to change the loft, lie, and even the weight configuration on their driver. There was a time when one would go to find a driver that they could hit and you would spend all kinds of time looking for the r ight loft with the right shaft and more. Now, you can switch out the shaft and change the loft and lie with the use of a simple tool. It's made club-fitting so much easier. T our Edge's new line of clubs was what I had the chance to test out that day. The new XCG7 Driver and F airway Woods are true w eapons. I hit a few balls, answered a few questions, and within a couple adjustments I was hitting bombs, straight down the driving ra nge. If I want to change my ball flight any, the driver adjusts from 8.5 to 12.0degrees of loft. I can even set the lie to open, square or closed. Since I don't swing the same from one round to the next, being able to tweak my driver to match my swing of the day, is a god-send. The jewel of the new Exotics lineup is the CB PRO fairway wood. This club combines a smaller head size with a revolutionary S lip Stream Sole to create the ultimate fairway wood for accomplished players. I found that the size really appeals to my eye, and the boring ball flight is perfect for windy Florida afternoons. Even with my humble 10-handicap swing it works quite well. There are a few new sets of irons in the Exotics line as w ell. The XCG7 has all the technological bells and whistles, with a pleasing top line that is all you see at address. One thing that I have noticed in the last year and especially at the show this y ear is that irons are becoming much easier to hit. The new Exotics CB PROh iron set is a hybrid iron set that combines two distinctive designs that deliver distance and accuracy. The long and mid irons are a full-hollow design combined with a thin forged face that creates an extremely high C.O.R. And a soft, responsive feel. I haven't hit many long irons as I carry a hybrid or three in my bag. I was impressed at how easy these long irons we re to hit. In the short irons, the CB PROh incorporates a cavity blade design for precision and trajectory control. M ade from soft 431 stainless steel and featuring a multimaterial vibration dampening plaque for feel and control, these irons are a must-try. T our Edge's Bazooka line of hybrids continues to be one of the best-selling lines in golf. The new Bazooka M ax D-45 drivers and fairways promise to add more weapons to your bag. After hitting the Bazooka M ax D-45 irons, you too will gain an appreciation for what the new technology has done for irons. W ith a 30-day no questions asked play guarantee, there is no reason to not try any of the Tour Edge or Exotics clubs.
