ST. LUCIE COUNTY The Curtis King B oulevard substation was dedicated in memory of Master Deputy Joseph S. Hover in a ceremony on Oct. 8. S t. Lucie County Sheriff Ken J. Mascara dedicated the substation to the memory of Master D eputy Hover, one of six Sheriff's Office members who lost his life in the line of duty. M aster Deputy Hover faithfully served the people of St. Lucie County as a member of the S t. Lucie County Sheriff's Office from September 1981 to Oct. 8, 2005. He had a distinguished 24-year career with the Sheriff's Office in Road Patrol, the K-9 Unit, D etective Division and School Resource D eputy Unit. M aster Deputy Hover was injured during defensive tactics training and tragically lost his life as a result of complications from surgery to treat his injury. He was honored on the anniversary of his death, as one of six S heriff's Office members to lose his life in the line of duty. M aster Deputy Hover was also honored as the first deputy of the agency to specialize in the investigation of motor vehicle theft. He took an interest in these cases long before law enforcement agencies made this a specialty area of law enforcement. He also was for many years a specialist in the investigation of criminal activity in the agricultural areas of the county. The Sheriff's Office airport substation houses the Agricultural Crimes Unit, Auto Theft Unit, Warrants Unit and Sex Offender U nit. The substation is located at 2850 Curtis King Bl v d., Fort Pierce, at the entrance to the airport.Sheriffs building dedicated in memory of fallen officerTREASURE COAST Dr. E dwin R. Massey, president of I ndian River State College, has been selected from more than 1,200 state and community college presidents nationwide to receive the Association of Community C ollege Trustees highest CEO award. The 2013 Marie Y. Martin Chief Executive Officer Award was presented to Dr. Massey in front of a standing-roomonly crowd of more than 2,000 college trustees and presidents on Oct. 4 at the N ational ACCT Leadership C onference in Seattle. H onored for his exceptional leadership, talent for translating vision into action and strong record of accomplishments, Dr. Massey was previously named the Southern R egional CEO of the Year, which qualified him as one of five regional finalists for the national award. A ccepting the national award on behalf of the entire I ndian River State College family, Dr. Massey credited the dedication of the College faculty and staff, great students, sound direction by the B oard of Trustees, and tremendous community support for IRSCs achievements. W e have an outstanding team, and attaining this level of national stature is absolutely due to the combined efforts and contributions of all those committed to the Colleges success, Dr. M assey said. IRSC Board of Trustees members Werner Bols, Chairman, of Stuart, and Jose Conr ado, of Vero Beach, were present at the ACCT Leadership Conference when the award was announced. We couldnt be more proud, Mr. Bo ls csaid. This recognition of Dr. Massey is exceptionally w ell-deserved. O ne of the hallmarks of Dr Masseys presidency is his intense commitment to community needs, building numerous collaborative partnerships at the local, state and national levels to foster economic and workforce development, Mr. Bols said. Under his leadership, IRSC has become a nationally r espected, high-performing institution with far-reaching benefits for the Treasure C oast and our students. In r ecognition of Dr. Masseys dedication to excellence and world-class results, the IRSC B oard whole-heartedly commends and congratulates him. Dr Massey was appointed IRSCs third president and CEO in 1988, and his tenure in office has been marked by a legacy of exceptional accomplishments. Examples include: E xpanding enrollment by 300 percent in over 130 D egree and Certificate programs. S ignificantly expanding the C olleges five campuses to include over 700 acres and 1.5 million square feet of stateof-the-art educational facilities. Leading the Colleges transition from Indian River C ommunity College to Indian River State College, expanding the College mission to become a Baccalaureate degree-granting institution, and establishing 23 new B achelors Degree programs linked directly to regional workforce needs. A chieving national rankings for IRSC as the 10th best college in the Southern Re gion by U.S. News & World R eport and 4th most affordable college by the U.S. D epartment of Education.

It s about raising money and voices to grant Americas veterans what theyve longed for years to see. The fundraising 5K takes place at Witham Airport right after the National Anthem at the Stuart Air Sh ow and benefits Honor F light, an organization that flies World War II veterans to Washington D.C. to see the World War II monument. B ut with the recent government shutdown, the monument, along with many other attractions, has been closed to the public. So in an effort to ensure those who served get to see the memorial erected in their honor, not only will race registration proceeds benefit honor flight, but Fair Wind Air Charter, who is sponsoring the r ace, is asking participants to write to politicians asking for the barricades to be lowered. The memorial was built in their honor and having them stand outside the gates is just a disgrace, said Alex Beringer, executive vice president atArea veterans to benefit from inaugural runBy Alisha McDarrisF or Hometown News See RUN, A2 See AWARD, A2 Y es, We Do Deliver!

ST. LUCIE COUNTY The season for gathering together, giving thanks, lighting candles and trimming trees is close at hand. In an effort to help local families enjoy holiday dinners together in their homes, F amily Meals is hosting its 2013 Food Drive through De c .6. T ight budgets and concerns about job stability keep festive holiday meals out of reach for many hardworking St. Lucie County residents. In response to local economic challenges, Family M eals provides free, uncooked meal ingredients to help families prepare and enjoy bountiful holiday dinners together. The nonprofit group encourages residents to develop a positive family r outine of gathering around their tables talking, laughing and enjoying each others company. F amily Meals volunteers started delivering holiday dinner ingredients to St. L ucie County families last Thanksgiving. Volunteers assisted 20 families in November, 2012. The groups Christmas outr each helped 60 families, and 150 families were provided groceries for Easter dinners in March, 2013. Family M eals Summer Outreach in J uly benefitted 341 families. I ngredients for 1,000 meals we re provided, including dinners for 400 children. F amily Meals enormous growth in 2013 has depleted the organizations funds. C ommunity help is needed.

Rita Lindsey, Food Drive chairwoman, placed donation bins throughout St. L ucie County, with one dropoff location in Martin County. All donated, non-perishable canned and boxed food items will go directly to St. L ucie County homes for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.

No one is certain whether or not the barricades will be open when the next group of area veterans arrive on Oct. 19, but the trip is still on. What Mr. Beringer and so many others are hoping is that so many people appeal to their congressmen, senators, and even the president, that the politicians will reopen the memorial to the public. The corporation has even gone as far as providing links on their website with contact information for those politicians to make it as easy as possible for the community to email or send Facebook and twitter messages their r epresentatives to fight for the cause. Mr. Beringer suggests calling on elected officials to work together to find a way to allow the deserving veterans to enjoy the memorial, something many of them may never have the opportunity to see again. K eep it polite and keep it respectful, but let your opinions be known, Mr. Be r inger said. Im hoping a lot of people reach out to their leadership. He doesnt know if barricades will be lifted in time for the October flight, but he hopes the veterans find open doors, open arms and no obstacles when they arrive in the nations capital.

Y ou may be familiar with A utoTrader.com, A utoByTel.com,Cars.com C ostco, Sams Warehouse, and TrueCar.com. There are thousands of local, private brokers who will buy a car for y ou for a fee. There are also a lot of other organizations that provide auto buying services for their members. AAA, American Express, Consumer Reports, PenFed, N ationwide, GEICO, USAA are just a few. The first thing to remember is that all auto buying services are in the business to make a profit. They are all middle men that you and/or the dealers pay fees to. Paying a fee raises the cost of the car to the dealer. That means that if y ou are a shrewd negotiator who really does their homework you should be able to buy a car for as low a price as any auto buying service and save the cost of the fee. R ealistically, very few people are that good at negotiating. Remember that car salesmen and managers are professional negotiators. This brings to mind the old jokeWhen you sit down at a poker game and look all around the table but dont see a sucker. Youre the sucker! B esides lacking professional negotiation skills, few people have the thick skin to be able to deal with the gameplaying and insulting shenanigans of car salesmen and their managers. In addition to the pain of buying a car is the inordinate amount of time it can take. I consider local, individual brokers as being the least efficient and trustworthy of all auto buying services. Most auto brokers are ex car salesmen. They charge you a fee and they often charge the dealer a fee too. A private brokers fee is usually much higher than a national auto buying services. At my dealership Ive paid brokers several thousand dollars to his customer and had to charge a lot more for the car than if the customer had come to me directly. The broker probably charged the customer a fee too. There are a few brokers who are trustworthy and wont gouge their customers, but they are few and far between. As far as all of the national buying services, its still buyer beware. My two favorites are TrueCar.com and Costco, but even with these two you should never let your guard down. The C ostco program is administered by a separate company from Costco that is licensed by C ostco to use their name. Tr ueCar is owned by a group of private investors and is new on the scene but are growing very rapidly. Im signed up with TrueCar and C ostco and Im also a member of the TrueCar national dealer council. I do business with Cars.com, AutoTrader, and Autobytel. The auto buying services advise you or the dealer of the price you should pay for the car. But, you have to remember that they dont come into the dealership with you when y ou actually purchase the car. Ev en though I dont recommend local car brokers, this is one advantage they have over national auto buying services. A broker will go into the dealership with you to assist you in the buying process or actually to the buying himself. If he is honest and his loyalty is to y ou, not the dealer, he can protect you from being tricked into paying more than you we re told the price was. This is the biggest problem with national auto buying services. Every service will, or should, give you the name of the salesman in the dealership that administers their program. They usually have more than one person, and you should be sure that you deal only with their designated repr esentative. All too often, members of auto buying services and companies just walk into the dealership and say I m a Costco member and I want to buy a car at the special C ostco price. The person you are talking to is likely a commissioned sales person and hes also likely to say, Sure, Ill be happy to sell you a car at the Costco price. Of course, what happens is he sells you the car at the highest price he can because hes paid 25 percent of the total profit he makes on that car. Never deal with anyone else at a car dealership except the designated member of that car buying service. Y ou should also know the auto-service quoted out-thedoor price of the car youre buying before signing the papers or taking delivery. One of the reasons I like Tr ueCar.com is that they give y ou that price before you ever go into the dealership. Costco does not give you the price but they require the car dealer to give you an official Costco price sheet for the specific car yo u re buying. Unfortunately this doesnt always happen. I r ecently mystery shopped a C ostco dealer and they did not show my mystery shopper the C ostco price sheet, but they said it was. My definition of an outthe-door price is one that excludes only government taxes and fees. All too often, the car dealers add their own fees which they variously refer to as doc fees, dealer fee, prep fee, administrative fee, dealer handling fee, electronic filing fee, etc. One of my gripes with Tr ueCar.com is that they give y ou a TrueCar Price but below that in the fine print they say Dealers Name charges a $XXXX.00 Documentary Fee. Be sure that you r ead your auto buying services quoted price very carefully including the fine print. Another common trick by dealers is to add dealer installed accessories to the price quoted by the auto buying service. My advice is to never buy a dealer installed accessory, only factory installed. There are always exceptions to this but be very careful when making one. D ealer accessories are typically low cost items, virtually worthless with hugely inflated prices. Examples are nitrogen in tires, paint sealant, fabric coat, pin stripes, VINs etched in glass, and roadside assistance. If y ou cannot get the dealer to agree to the price that was given you by the auto-buying service, leave the dealership, call your auto buying service, and report that dealer. Usually there are other dealers in y our area who are also affiliated with the same buying service and they may recommend one of them. The auto buying service is paid by the dealer and that can be a problem. They have to keep the dealers happy so that they can make money. They like to keep the car buyers happy so that they will come back and tell their friends. The wise auto-buying service will realize that the best long term strategy is to put the car buyer over the dealer. The auto buying services first loyalty should be to the car buyer, not the dealer. This means that services should police their dealers and cull out those dealers who try to take advantage of car buyers by r aising the agreed upon prices. Auto buying services offer safe way to buy ON CARSEARL STEWART

FORT PIERCE Thats r ight! Gourmet food trucks are making their way to downtown Fort Pierce, bringing delicacies to the ri verfront area for all to enjoy. Whether youre in the mood for a specialty cupcake or a gourmet taco, chances are you will be able to satisfy your craving on Fr iday evening. S t. Andrews St. Andrew's E piscopal Academy will host the event from 6-10 p.m. along the picturesque Indian River. W e are so excited to bring this event to Fort Pierce, said Dawn Doyle, president of the Parent Teacher Organization of St. Andrews. We couldnt believe that the food trucks hadnt made their way here yet, so we worked really hard to make it happen. This event is likened to a massive outdoor picnic where a plethora of different food trucks prepare food that is cooked to order. The trucks are run by chefs who make the gourmet cuisine in front of customers. There is a great deal of fusion cuisine, comfort foods and desserts to choose from. P atrons should prepare for some long lines, but they are worth the wait. W e have studied other F ood Truck events to try and prepare for this one, Ms. Doyle said. We are hoping to have everything run smoothly. This is our first time and were getting our feet wet, but were anxious to get this event off the ground. Its going to be great for the downtown area, for Fo rt Pierce and for the community. The whole family is welcome and encouraged to attend since this is a family friendly atmosphere and everyone is invited. There will be a cash bar available, too.

This year honors the 1,013th anniversary of Leif Eriksons discovery of North America. The Treasure Coast Sons Of Norway Gulfstream Lodge 3-541 hosted the event. Scary time at local storeNo it's not Halloween yet. I had my debit card number stolen at Walmart last Tuesday and somebody cleaned out my bank account! All is back to normal now, money back in account, new debit card, went to the bank yesterday morning and they had taken care of it. For tunately I had checked my bank account Wed. night (within the 48 hour period you're allowed to report unauthorized transactions) so a man at the customer service line which is open 24/7 was able to file a dispute and stop the transaction for me; all the money was replaced by Friday morning, thank goodness. I was using the new "Self-service" machine, they just put them in a month or so ago and the first time I used it I was delighted, it saves standing in long lines, etc. The second time I used it, not so good! I'd put money from my debit card on a shopping card to buy gas, so I could save three cents a gallon. Not much of a savings when somebody rips off your debit card number and uses it online to buy hundreds of dollars worth of stuff. So be careful. Christmas is around the corner and the scammers are out there looking for little ole ladies who don't look like they know enough to check their bank accounts on line every day.Cant feel safeThere are so many things to worry about these days. There are so many crimes being committed by young and old alike. Its impossible to feel safe leaving your windows open or going for a walk in the evening time. Its as if we live in a time in which we must carry a stick or worse, a gun, to feel safe. Enough with commercialsT oday we are flooded with cable TV, Direct TV and Dish N etwork programming. These are old technology and old money-making schemes, and we are bombarded with commercial after commercial, with little entertainment, unlike the good old days, when each and every program had at least one sponsor, we now have as many as 10 or more 30-second annoying commercials. Why not have these satellite programs on the new digital side channels of the local T.V. stations? That would be as close to ala carte programming as possible. The religious and Latino channels are already enjoying the riches of local audiences, so why not CNN, MSNBC, Br avo, HBO, etc. Cable TV, Dish network and Direct TV are expensive for the amount of real entertainment. The massive doses of commercials are negating the entire entertainment process. Using digital channels will also spread the profits around to our local affiliates and, as a result, our local governments will benefit more. I am aware that these networks especially cable TV pay hefty fees for use of the local utilities, but new taxes are being discovered all the time, so why not from digital TV instead of satellite TV programming?F ood stamp run aroundI have a rant about our state's assistance programs. I have had to apply for food stamps since having to stop working due to injuries sustained from a car accident. Ev eryone has proclaimed that the "new system" of obtaining assistance from the state will be very userfriendly and easier in the long run for all involved. Well, I don't feel that way at all. I applied for food stamps and temporary cash assistance due to the fact that I have no income and have a child and the child support that I do get is very sporadic. (I am thankful that I do receive it when I do.) I couldn't apply online and had to phone in. I had them send me the application in the mail and then when I received it, I faxed in my proof of income, mortgage, utilities and medical bills, and I did so the day after I received my letter from DCF. I used a friends fax machine, because I couldn't afford to use a professional one that charged $1 a page, much less I don't have use of my car due to no insurance or an up-todate registration. I waited 15 days, like the lady had said, for expedited food stamps. I called many times after the 15 days were up, trying to get an answer only to be hung up on several times due to too many lines being used. After 30 days of not hearing from them again, by mail, I w ent online, since they had an updated website for applicants and found that I "chose not to apply." I wanted to pull every last hair out of my head. I had to repeat the process all over again. In between, I've had friends drive me to the Salvation Army and a few other small food banks so as to not starve. After applying for the expedited food stamps online, where they take your information and just believe it for now, kind of thing, I finally got some help, 35 days later, of $150 for one month, of expedited food stamps. I still had to fax in my proof paperwork again and this would be for the next six months. I could see online how much they already allotted to us and was quite excited that we would be able to eat every day, much less three times a day. This time a friend took me to a professional fax and paid the $9 for my fax usage. I have been waiting 22 days for this months allotment of food stamps. I have called DCF three times and got through: once a lady told me that yes, my food stamp allotment was approved and it would be available in 24 hours. The second time a lady said that she didn't know what the holdup was, that it looked like they were just processing it and I would have to wait for the social worker to approve it and they would send a letter. F or some reason, the system isn't working for my case even though I have no income and was diligent in getting all my proof of income and bills into the DCF office. The third time I called, I asked if there was anything they we re waiting on and was told no and I had to wait for my social worker to approve it. I was told I can't ask for my social worker by name for some reason and no one seems to know what's going on. The website tells me how much is allotted to us and we can't get it. I don't understand. Why we are waiting so long? Especially when we were allotted the amount and all the T's were crossed and I's were dotted. We're hungry.Stop for busesC orrect me if I'm wrong, but isn't it a law to stop when a school bus is flashing its lights and slowing down to stop? Don't drivers realize that means a child is near and about to walk to get on that bus? That child could be coming in any direction. Drivers be aware. There have been Got something to say?

C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Well, it finally happened. Your computer has issues and it's time to call for help. It happens to every computer user eventually that dreaded call to tech support. This week, I will share some tips that can make that inevitable call to tech support go smoothly. The first question that y ou have to ask yourself is: "Who are you going to call?" That answer depends on the issues you are having. F or instance, if you are having Internet connection issues, you may want to call y our Internet provider (AT&T, Comcast, Road R unner, or whoever you are using to connect to the I nternet). If you are having hardware issues, such as problems accessing a printer or other device, you may need to contact support for that device. F or problems with your operating system (Windows won't load, etc.), a call to M icrosoft's tech support may be in order. If you are having problems with the computer itself (getting errors or beep codes as soon as you turn it on), you may want to call the manufacturer of the computer. That's a lot of decisions to make even before making the call, but you need to be clear about the nature of the problem. Answering these questions beforehand will help clarify y our issues before you make the call. Also, don't forget the warranty. S ome devices may carry warranties that last years. It would be frustrating to fix or replace a device only to find out you could have had it fixed under warranty. Once you're clear on whom to call and why, sit in front of the computer when y ou make the call. There is little that any phone support technician can do for you if you are not sitting in front of the machine. You have to be his "eyes and ears" so make sure that when you call for help, you are at your computer. After spending some time on hold, (nothing I can help with there) you will finally get someone on the line. R emember: This person is new to your issue and has no idea what you have or have not tried yet. He's going to ask you questions and perhaps have you click some things. Ev en if he is having you click something you have already clicked, comments such as, "I already tried that," don't help. He hasn't tried anything yet and needs to start somewhere. Also keep in mind that even if your tech support person has a thick accent, he probably does this type of thing 40 hours a week and knows exactly what he's looking for. When he asks you to click something and you don't immediately see it, don't instantly reply with, "I don't have that." Do a thorough scan of all of the icons in whatever screen y ou are looking in and make sure. Nine times out of 10, you'll find it. F ollow the directions the support person gives you, and try not to get distracted by all the other stuff that will pop up on the way. Stay focused on his or her instructions and you'll usually get through most issues quickly and without too much frustration. H opefully, you won't have to make that call, but when you do, having as much information in front of you will help. Things such as any specific error messages that may be popping up, what you were doing when the problem occurred and so on. This information is invaluable to the tech support person on the other end of the phone. If you have a "quick question," that's great. Just r emember that 99 percent of all tech support calls are just quick questions. It's the answer that can drag on for hours.

The Common Core Standards have been adopted by 45 states and the District of C olumbia. Governor Scott has been a supporter for three years, but now states he supports the standards but not the test. State Representative Debbie Mayfield has proposed a bill, (HB25), r equiring more extensive public hearings and cost analysis for implementing the standards. The establishment of national standards and a national test is the BEST way to prepare students in the U nited States. For too long, students have been evaluated by state tests. The performance on a state test does not show how well educated the Florida students are in comparison to students throughout the country. For the Governor to say he supports the Common Core S tandards but not the national test is counter-productive. How ever, I can understand the Governors wanting to create a state test using the C ommon Core Objectives.

LUCIE The fourth annual Child's Cry for Help's "Weathering Purple Reign" luncheon and silent auction, sponsored by the Peter W. Busch Family F oundation, will take place Nov. 1 at The Legacy Golf & T ennis Club in Port St. Lucie starting at 11:30 a.m. The silent auction and lunch will begin at noon. Par ticipants will take part in an individual Monarch butterfly release to empower others about the transformation one must take to ov ercome domestic violence. The emphasis of the event is to educate, raise awareness and empower others about domestic violence while changing societal attitudes and inspiring the community about this epidemic. Domestic violence transcends all ethnic, racial, sexual orientation and socioeconomic boundaries. Domestic violence is not prejudice to its victims. One out of three women are victims in their lifetime. Over 10 million children a year are witness to domestic violence. Domestic violence is a critical national problem affecting all of us in every community from our children to the elderly. The Keynote speaker will be Aria Dunham, on-air personality for Sea View Radio's "Game Changer" show, founder, president and CEO of Platform-Power, advocate and survivor of domestic violence. The silent auction will consist of decorative baskets and gift certificates ranging from an in-home wine tasting from PRP Wine, a cruise for two nights and three days to the Bahamas from C elebration Cruise Lines, to a doggie lovers basket from Love on A Leash. The event's art sponsor is Edna Hibel. O ctober is the National Domestic Violence Awareness month. Activities during the month provide an excellent opportunity for the community to learn more about domestic violence. All proceeds will benefit Child's Cry for Help. T ickets for luncheon are $35 per person. All ages are w elcome to attend.

FA U Harbor Branch will host a workshop for the Our G lobal Estuary initiative, which will bring together 50 invited participants from across the U.S. and from Australia. T op estuarine scientists, r esource managers, urban planners, environmental lawyers, tribal, coastal and ocean observing system managers, educators and other stakeholders will come together to work toward new solutions for regional and global sustainability. There will be a press conference following the final session of the workshop on Oct. 22 at noon on the Harbor Br anch campus (5600 U.S. 1 Nor th, Fort Pierce.) There is an urgent need to anticipate and manage envir onmental changes in estuaries, both regionally and globally, said Antnio Baptista, P h.D., workshop co-chair and director of the NSF Science and Technology Center for C oastal Margin Observation & Pr ediction. These critical but sensitive ecosystems provide some of the worlds most valuable natural resources, and are essential for economic and environmental sustainability. This workshop is the first in a series of events which aim to provide a powerful set of recommendations to answer science questions, aid management, develop policy and promote stewardship activities. I am excited to be a part of this ground-breaking initiative, said Margaret Leinen, P h.D., workshop co-chair and director of Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San D iego. Bringing together this high-level group of experts is the first step in providing recommendations that can be used to respond to the risks and opportunities facing the worlds estuaries. The workshop, funded by proceeds from the HBOI F oundations annual Love Y our Lagoon dinner held each February, has been coordinated by a nine-member steering committee of nationwide experts with backgrounds in observatories, estuarine science and management. This workshop would not be possible without the grant support from the HBOI Foundation and the hard work of the steering committee, said M egan Davis, Ph.D., workshop co-chair and HBOI associate executive director of r esearch. We are very pleased that HBOI was chosen as the location to host this timely and much needed national workshop on estuarine observ ation and predication networks.

U pon Governor Scott being elected, he reduced the education budget by $1 billion dollars. To use a state produced test will create the r esults the legislators want the public to see curve the r esults any way you want. The students in Florida deserve a good education built upon the Common Co re S tandards and national testing.

too many tragedies already because cars/trucks do not stop. I take my granddaughter to her bus stop at 7 a.m. I have had to jump from my car and stand in the middle of the street waving my arms as my granddaughter crossed the street to board her school bus. Only then do they start slowing down. W ake up, drivers, before y ou get behind the wheel in the morning. It's the law: stop. matter? W ell, Ive been doing r emote computer support ov er the phone for more than 15 years and often spend up to 40 hours a w eek on the phone helping people walk through their computer issues. I still fix computers and over the y ears I found that the calls that go quickest are the ones where the caller is at least a little prepared, in front of the computer when they call and follow my instructions precisely without getting distracted along the way.

If any of y ou are like me, the consistency is sometimes off and theyre never perfectly browned or round. When I visited Golden B ear Pancake House, I wasnt aware I was about to eat the perfect pancake. The restaurant was packed with families enjoying breakfast and lunch. My guest and I arrived late morning and decided to find out what all the fuss was about. The owner and head chef, Alex Fotsis, sat down with us and talked pancakes, the restaurant business and how to make customers smile. I v e been doing this a long time and I know the key to keeping a customer happy, Mr. Fotsis said. I try to make sure the food they eat is better than theyve ever had. I want the pancakes to be perfect. I want them to try a new breakfast dish and be amazed. Its what I pride myself in. And, perfect pancakes they were. The chef sent out bacon, scrambled eggs, hash browns, grits, toast and a healing serving of pancakes for my guest and me to try. Be fore I touched anything else in front of me, I bit into a fluffy, yet faintly crispy, hot, perfectly r ound pancake. The pancakes are served with a choice of syrups and toppings, including fruit and whipped cream. Mr. Fotsis then sent out a Mexico City skillet ta combination of chorizo sausage, diced onions, tomatoes and jalapeno peppers with shredded W isconsin cheddar and M onterey jack cheeses. The incredible dish is served with homemade salsa and sour cream. Each of the components of our breakfast was delicious. The grits were creamy and cooked to perfection, the bacon was crispy and the eggs couldn t have been more enjoyable. As we were enjoying our breakfast, Mr. Fotsis asked us to try his homemade biscuits and gravy. The buttermilk biscuits were out of this world and were Ghost tour sure to fright, delight FORT PIERCE Join M ain Street Fort Pierce for a memorable, leisurely walk into the ghosts of Fort Pierce past during the G hosts of Fort Pierce Past H istoric Walking Tour on W ednesday, Oct.30.

Adoption Orientation This past weekend my wife, Carol, and I had the immense pleasure of visiting the old Cypress Gar dens in Winter Haven. The park is now called Legoland and it has something to offer for all ages. U pon first entering the park, you are greeted by an array of colorful animal figures made from Lego bricks. In fact, most everything you see is made from colorful Legos throughout the park. If you have been there when it was Cypress Gar dens, you will recognize many of the buildings and landmarks. In the center of the park instead of topiaries and plant gardens, you will find miniature cities all made from Legos. It is highly detailed and amazing to look at. You will need quite a bit of time to explore this part of the park. As you move deeper into the park, you will see the all-familiar waterfall with all the landscaping just as it was in the old park. The landscaping is amazing with a varied collection of tropical and native plants surrounding the water fall. It is truly an amazing sight. If you follow the park all the way to the end, you will hit the pot of gold. This is where the original Cypress Gar dens botanical garden is located. It is worth the price of admission just to see these gardens. The botanical gardens abound with plant species from both native to varieties from all corners of the globe. The garden paths are clean and the gardens are all welltrimmed and manicured. While on your stroll, be sure to have your picture taken at the historic gazebo. Also, be sure to spend some time at the old Banyan tree that is in the center of the gardens. After leaving the gardens, be sure to see the ski show. Although themed different from the original, it is truly entertaining to see. T oday I want to talk about a couple of the plants that I encountered on the tour that has a very interesting background. The first is a plant called the Travelers P alm. The Travelers Palm (ravenala madagascariensis) is actually not a palm at all. This plant is a member of the bird-of-paradise family. In fact, looking at the plant from a distance, it is very difficult to tell them apart. This plant has a very interesting history. Back in the explorer days, this plant actually was a source of water for travelers, hence the name travelers palm. The stems hold rainwater that can be used as an emergency drinking supply. Each stem can hold as much as a pint of water. I ts huge paddle shaped leaves that indeed have both a tropical and a majestic appearance characterizes the plant. Tr avelers Palm is a very easy to grow plant choice and can really offer a distinct tropical look to any landscape. The plant requires a fairly sunny location and should be planted so the shape of the plant goes from east to w est. I was not able to do that with mine but the plant is still thriving beautifully. They require moderate water but once wellestablished they are very easy to maintain. The main maintenance issue with this plant would be trimming off the dry and/or broken branches. Although quite hardy, they can be damaged in high winds or hard freeze conditions. My plant has been through both and has r ecovered every time. Y ou can fertilize with a high nitrogen fertilizer during the summer growing season if desired. This will help to keep the dark green leaf color and aid in faster plant growth. These plants are available at many local nurseries. The next plant I would like to mention is a variety known as the Song of India. The Song of India is a tropical plant that has long narrow leaves that have green centers with a creamy y ellow edge. The plant can grow up to four feet high. This plant is often used as an indoor tropical but can also be planted outdoors in a tropical garden or on a deck or patio in a pot. Song of India requires bright light but will burn if placed in all day direct sun. The plant is easy to grow and only r equires small amounts of water. They do not like their feet to be soaking wet. Since the plant loves humidity, it grows quite well in our area. This plant is widely available at many local nurseries. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

TREASURE COAST When planning Halloween festivities its important to remember that safety is essential for both the parents of little ghouls and goblins, but also for homeowners who will pass out the treats. He re are a few tips that will hopefully prepare parents for make the evening fun for everyone. 1.Encourage the kids to use facial make up instead of a mask. 2.Spend the extra dollar and purchase quality makeup. You dont want your kid to have that same look w eeks later. 3.If possible, design the costume to accommodate a sweater or even a jacket underneath depending on the weather. 4.Make sure that all costumes and accessories are flame resistant. 5.Keep in mind how much walking theyll be doing for their age. You dont want to have to carry your little ghoul home. 6.Carry extra bags to dump candy in so the kids dont get overly tired. 7. If you have more than one kid to supervise, try bringing a wagon or cart to unload the candy in as they go door to door. 8.If youre taking other kids with you, set out the r ules before you leave and make sure they understand. 9.Instruct the kids to stay with you and off the lawns and out of the gardens. 10.Remind the kids to say thank you, even if they get crappy candy. 11.Be prepared to carry their props after a while. 12.Inspect all candy when y ou get home. Throw away homemade, unwrapped or open candy. 13.Let them have one piece of wrapped candy while on the walk as a treat/break. 14.Bring a flashlight and give them glow sticks to wear. 15.Dont let them walk in the middle of the streets. C ars will still travel on roads O ctober 31st. 16.If the front light is out but they have Halloween decorations, there is a good chance that they have no more candy. 17.If the lights are out and dont have any decorations, the people are most likely hiding in the back and have no candy to give. 18.Carry a small, portable first aid kit for those little cuts and injuries. 19.Many people bring their dogs with them and dress them up in costumes such as a hot dog or a devil. I nstruct the kids to ask the o wner if they can pet the animal before they do. There is a good chance that the animal is embarrassed to be in a costume and may want to take it out on a kid. 20.When the kids go to the door, stay close by and watch carefully. 21.Set a strict curfew for older kids that go out on their own. 22.Kids are never to go into the house unless you know them. 23.If you have to drive, slow down more than usual. 24.Give the kids a snack before they go out. They wont complain about being hungry and want to eat the candy. 25.Take half the candy and place it in the freezer for use in the summer. He re are a few tips for homeowners on Halloween: 1. Keep the path to your door clear of all obstacles and well lit. 2. Dont terrorize the kids. It s all about fun and not making them wet their pants. 3. Be extremely careful with the candle in your pumpkin so that nothing bursts into flames, including a kids costume. Consider using a battery powered light or glow sticks. 4.Use flashlights, glow sticks or electric lights with the power cord safe and secured. 5. If you have a dog, keep it in another room and away from the door. 6. If youre going to give candy, give only store bought and wrapped items such as chocolate bars, chips, etc. Loose candy will be thrown out by the parents. 7.Alternative giving can include pencils, erasers or stickers with a Halloween theme. 8. If youve spent a lot of time on your Halloween display, you may want to consider putting some sort of safe fencing around it so that everyone can enjoy it without it being trampled. 9.Halloween candy is magically calorie and fat free on October 31st so feel free to use the one for you, one for me rule. 10.Check out our website for more tips and special effects.

JENSEN BEACH A Bahamian marketplace will line the streets, carnival r ides will light up the sky and more bands than ever before will thrill festivalgoers from near and far during this years Pineapple Festival in Jensen Beach. The 26th annual festival celebrates the citys 125th anniversary in a big way with live music, street vendors, parades and entertainment. Jensen Beachs signature event will showcase the streets of Downtown and all that it has to offer for locals and tourists alike. R onald Rose, executive director of the Jensen Beach Chamber of Commerce said its not only a hit with those who live in Martin County y ear round, but gives winter r esidents a reason to head south a bit early, draws former residents back to their old stomping grounds, and those looking for a vacation spot an exciting destination. Almost 40 bands, including local groups like Fresh C atch and The Ohana Band, will perform on four stages ov er the three-day event and two headlining concerts are scheduled for each night instead of the usual one per evening. I t s pretty much non-stop entertainment, Mr. Rose said. This years headliners include Joel Crouse and Jerr od Neimann on Friday, The M arshall Tucker Band and Little River Band on Saturday, and Kidz Bob Kids and The Expendables on Sunday. W ith our incredible number of headline concerts were really looking forward to creating a worldclass event, Mr. Rose said. B ut what he is looking forward to most is reconnecting with the residents from Eleuthera, Bahamas who come to the festival every y ear to present an authentic B ahamian Market and entertain with a colorful J unkanoo band. Ca r nival rides, including the ever-popular Ferris wheel, are always a hit with kids who can grab an unlimited ride wristband for $20 on Sunday. M agic shows, dancing, jugglers and kids workshops will fill out the entertainment lineup for the weekend. Pa r king for the event is limited, so there are shuttles that run between the festival and Jensen Beach High School every 20 minutes.

If I had to call a course my home course, H ammock Creek in Palm City would likely be my choice. The club sponsored my weekly golf radio show for several years, and I enjoyed a round at the course several times a month for quite some time. I know the course almost as w ell as the back of my hand. A bout four years ago, Ray F inch purchased the course. He spent the next y ear or so using his knowledge and experience to complete many upgrades to the course and facilities. One of his first upgrades was to put asphalt and curbing in the parking lot and bag drop areas. The curbing may not sound like much, but it helped tremendously with traffic flow and drainage, and r eally set off the new landscaping around the clubhouse and cart barn. This past summer H ammock Creek closed from early June until just this past week. Finch's desire was to upgrade the greens with new Tiff Eagle grass, improve drainage on and around the greens and drop a few more tweaks here and there around the course. Ha mmock Creek, located within a mile of Florida's Tu rn pike and also I-95, originally opened in 1995. The course was the first designed by the father-son team of Jack Nicklaus and J ack Nicklaus II and quickly became one of the finest daily fee courses in the area. It was also home to the Golden Bear Tour, hosted many mini tours, U.S. Open Qualifying, and even hosted the Taste of Ma r tin County. Those who have played H ammock Creek know it for its expansive fairways, large greens, variety of holes and friendly staff. The course is also tops with many lady golfers as it features few forced carries and greens complexes that allow for many different shots around the green. The course also features the Visage GPS yardage system on every cart, allowing for easier club selection and hole management. There are even tips on how to play each hole. If yo u re hungry, you can also order some food to pick up at the turn or have waiting when you finish your r ound. The staff can even use the system to alert you to approaching storms or r espond to a lost club or emergency. One impressive thing that I learned is that the entire staff has returned from the summer hiatus. The same smiling, friendly faces that have been a staple at Hammock Creek are there again awaiting y our return. For me it was like seeing old friends and it immediately put me in a great mood. On the course, golfers who have played here before will find just a few changes other than the new and impressively improved greens. The most obvious is the newly paved cart paths. Fr om the first tee all the way to the 18th green, the paths have been fixed and r epaved. It's a nice smooth r ide the whole way around. The other changes come from clearing out or thinning palmettos, knocking down tall grass and previously un-kept areas to keep golfers from having a blind tee shot. The area behind the third green is one such place. Us ed to be if you hit your approach long, the ball would tumble across the cart path and simply disappear in tall weeds and palmettos. That area has been cleaned out and you now have a good 10 feet for y our ball to settle. The areas directly in front of the fifth and seventh tees have also been cleaned up and knocked down, allowing golfers an unimpeded view of the fairway. The cart path on number five, no longer backtracks toward the fairway before heading ov er to the sixth tee, making for a safer environment when the group behind you is ready to hit their second shots. Ha mmock Creek has five sets of tees playing from just over 5,000yards up to 7,119yards. The course is usually set up to play hard and fast, giving your drives some extra distance. There is also plenty of room to hit driver on almost every hole. There are few nasty bunkers to avoid, but most wont ruin your day should y ou find them. F inally, what you've been waiting to hear about: the greens. They are, to put it mildly, wonderful. Every putt I hit rolled smoothly and predictably. They are firm and fast, and should only get better as they mature. The design of each appears to be almost exactly as it was before. No strange bumps or false fronts have been slipped in on us. It truly is like going back home. F or more information, visit www.hammockcreekgolfclub.com or call (772) 220-2599 and speak to any of the clubs friendly staff.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY The Curtis King B oulevard substation was dedicated in memory of Master Deputy Joseph S. Hover in a ceremony on Oct. 8. S t. Lucie County Sheriff Ken J. Mascara dedicated the substation to the memory of Master D eputy Hover, one of six Sheriff's Office members who lost his life in the line of duty. M aster Deputy Hover faithfully served the people of St. Lucie County as a member of the S t. Lucie County Sheriff's Office from September 1981 to Oct. 8, 2005. He had a distinguished 24-year career with the Sheriff's Office in Road Patrol, the K-9 Unit, D etective Division and School Resource D eputy Unit. M aster Deputy Hover was injured during defensive tactics training and tragically lost his life as a result of complications from surgery to treat his injury. He was honored on the anniversary of his death, as one of six S heriff's Office members to lose his life in the line of duty. M aster Deputy Hover was also honored as the first deputy of the agency to specialize in the investigation of motor vehicle theft. He took an interest in these cases long before law enforcement agencies made this a specialty area of law enforcement. He also was for many years a specialist in the investigation of criminal activity in the agricultural areas of the county. The Sheriff's Office airport substation houses the Agricultural Crimes Unit, Auto Theft Unit, Warrants Unit and Sex Offender U nit. The substation is located at 2850 Curtis King Bl v d., Fort Pierce, at the entrance to the airport.Sheriff's building dedicated in memory of fallen officerTREASURE COAST Dr. E dwin R. Massey, president of I ndian River State College, has been selected from more than 1,200 state and community college presidents nationwide to receive the Association of Community C ollege Trustees highest CEO award. The 2013 Marie Y. Martin Chief Executive Officer Award was presented to Dr. Massey in front of a standing-roomonly crowd of more than 2,000 college trustees and presidents on Oct. 4 at the N ational ACCT Leadership C onference in Seattle. H onored for his exceptional leadership, talent for translating vision into action and strong record of accomplishments, Dr. Massey was previously named the Southern R egional CEO of the Year, which qualified him as one of five regional finalists for the national award. A ccepting the national award on behalf of "the entire I ndian River State College family," Dr. Massey credited the dedication of the College faculty and staff, great students, sound direction by the B oard of Trustees, and tremendous community support for IRSC's achievements." "W e have an outstanding team, and attaining this level of national stature is absolutely due to the combined efforts and contributions of all those committed to the College's success," Dr. M assey said. IRSC Board of Trustees members Werner Bols, Chairman, of Stuart, and Jose' Conr ado, of Vero Beach, were present at the ACCT Leadership Conference when the award was announced. "We couldn't be more proud," Mr. Bo ls csaid. "This recognition of Dr. Massey is exceptionally w ell-deserved." "O ne of the hallmarks of Dr Massey's presidency is his intense commitment to community needs, building numerous collaborative partnerships at the local, state and national levels to foster economic and workforce development," Mr. Bols said. "Under his leadership, IRSC has become a nationally r espected, high-performing institution with far-reaching benefits for the Treasure C oast and our students. In r ecognition of Dr. Massey's dedication to excellence and world-class results, the IRSC B oard whole-heartedly commends and congratulates him." Dr Massey was appointed IRSC's third president and CEO in 1988, and his tenure in office has been marked by a legacy of exceptional accomplishments. Examples include: E xpanding enrollment by 300 percent in over 130 D egree and Certificate programs. S ignificantly expanding the C ollege's five campuses to include over 700 acres and 1.5 million square feet of stateof-the-art educational facilities. Leading the College's transition from Indian River C ommunity College to Indian River State College, expanding the College mission to become a Baccalaureate degree-granting institution, and establishing 23 new B achelor's Degree programs linked directly to regional workforce needs. A chieving national rankings for IRSC as the 10th best college in the Southern Re gion by U.S. News & World R eport and 4th most affordable college by the U.S. D epartment of Education. S ecuring more than $90 million in local, state and national grant awards over the past ten years for projects r anging from the highly successful Regional Center for N uclear Education and Training to the new Lasers and F iber Optics Regional Education Center.

It 's about raising money and voices to grant America's veterans what they've longed for years to see. The fundraising 5K takes place at Witham Airport right after the National Anthem at the Stuart Air Sh ow and benefits Honor F light, an organization that flies World War II veterans to Washington D.C. to see the World War II monument. B ut with the recent government shutdown, the monument, along with many other attractions, has been closed to the public. So in an effort to ensure those who served get to see the memorial erected in their honor, not only will race registration proceeds benefit honor flight, but Fair Wind Air Charter, who is sponsoring the r ace, is asking participants to write to politicians asking for the barricades to be lowered. The memorial was built in their honor and having them stand outside the gates is just a disgrace," said Alex Beringer, executive vice president atArea veterans to benefit from inaugural runBy Alisha McDarrisF or Hometown News See RUN, A2 See AWARD, A2 Y es, We Do Deliver!

ST. LUCIE COUNTY The season for gathering together, giving thanks, lighting candles and trimming trees is close at hand. In an effort to help local families enjoy holiday dinners together in their homes, F amily Meals' is hosting its 2013 Food Drive through De c .6. T ight budgets and concerns about job stability keep festive holiday meals out of reach for many hardworking St. Lucie County residents. In response to local economic challenges, Family M eals provides free, uncooked meal ingredients to help families prepare and enjoy bountiful holiday dinners together. The nonprofit group encourages residents to develop a positive family r outine of gathering around their tables talking, laughing and enjoying each other's' company. F amily Meals volunteers started delivering holiday dinner ingredients to St. L ucie County families last Thanksgiving. Volunteers assisted 20 families in No vember, 2012. The group's Christmas outr each helped 60 families, and 150 families were provided groceries for Easter dinners in March, 2013. Family M eals' Summer Outreach in J uly benefitted 341 families. I ngredients for 1,000 meals we re provided, including dinners for 400 children. F amily Meals enormous growth in 2013 has depleted the organization's funds. C ommunity help is needed. All food donate dwill off-set grocery expenses for Family M eals' upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas outreaches in November and December, 2013. Rita Lindsey, Food Drive chairwoman, placed donation bins throughout St. L ucie County, with one dropoff location in Martin County. All donated, non-perishable canned and boxed food items will go directly to St. L ucie County homes for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. Arrangements to donate frozen turkeys or gift cards for turkeys can also be made. F amily Meals' 2013 Food Dr ive Drop-off Locations in S t. Lucie County: ABC Realty 946 A Seaway Dr ive, Fort Pierce.

No one is certain whether or not the barricades will be open when the next group of area veterans arrive on Oct. 19, but the trip is still on. What Mr. Beringer and so many others are hoping is that so many people appeal to their congressmen, senators, and even the president, that the politicians will reopen the memorial to the public. The corporation has even gone as far as providing links on their website with contact information for those politicians to make it as easy as possible for the community to email or send Facebook and twitter messages their r epresentatives to fight for the cause. Mr. Beringer suggests calling on elected officials to work together to find a way to allow the deserving veterans to enjoy the memorial, something many of them may never have the opportunity to see again.

Y ou may be familiar with A utoTrader.com A utoByTel.com,Cars.com C ostco, Sam's Warehouse, and TrueCar.com. There are thousands of local, private brokers who will buy a car for y ou for a fee. There are also a lot of other organizations that provide auto buying services for their members. AAA, American Express, Consumer Reports, PenFed, N ationwide, GEICO, USAA are just a few. The first thing to remember is that all auto buying services are in the business to make a profit. They are all "middle men" that you and/or the dealers pay fees to. Paying a fee raises the cost of the car to the dealer. That means that if y ou are a shrewd negotiator who really does their homework you should be able to buy a car for as low a price as any auto buying service and save the cost of the fee. R ealistically, very few people are that good at negotiating. Remember that car salesmen and managers are professional negotiators. This brings to mind the old joke"When you sit down at a poker game and look all around the table but don't see a sucker. You're the sucker!" B esides lacking professional negotiation skills, few people have the "thick skin" to be able to deal with the gameplaying and insulting shenanigans of car salesmen and their managers. In addition to the "pain" of buying a car is the inordinate amount of time it can take. I consider local, individual brokers as being the least efficient and trustworthy of all auto buying services. Most auto brokers are ex car salesmen. They charge you a fee and they often charge the dealer a fee too. A private broker's fee is usually much higher than a national auto buying services. At my dealership I've paid brokers several thousand dollars to his customer and had to charge a lot more for the car than if the customer had come to me directly. The broker probably charged the customer a fee too. There are a few brokers who are trustworthy and won't gouge their customers, but they are few and far between. As far as all of the national buying services, it's still "buyer beware." My two favorites are TrueCar.com and Costco, but even with these two you should never let your guard down. The C ostco program is administered by a separate company from Costco that is licensed by C ostco to use their name. Tr ueCar is owned by a group of private investors and is new on the scene but are growing very rapidly. I'm signed up with TrueCar and C ostco and I'm also a member of the TrueCar national dealer council. I do business with Cars.com, AutoTrader, and Autobytel. The auto buying services advise you or the dealer of the price you should pay for the car. But, you have to remember that they don't come into the dealership with you when y ou actually purchase the car. Ev en though I don't recommend local car brokers, this is one advantage they have over national auto buying services. A broker will go into the dealership with you to assist you in the buying process or actually to the buying himself. If he is honest and his loyalty is to y ou, not the dealer, he can protect you from being tricked into paying more than you we re told the price was. This is the biggest problem with national auto buying services. Every service will, or should, give you the name of the salesman in the dealership that administers their program. They usually have more than one person, and you should be sure that you deal only with their designated repr esentative. All too often, members of auto buying services and companies just walk into the dealership and say "I 'm a Costco member and I want to buy a car at the special C ostco price." The person you are talking to is likely a commissioned sales person and he's also likely to say, "Sure, I'll be happy to sell you a car at the Costco price." Of course, what happens is he sells you the car at the highest price he can because he's paid 25 percent of the total profit he makes on that car. Never deal with anyone else at a car dealership except the designated member of that car buying service. Y ou should also know the auto-service quoted out-thedoor price of the car you're buying before signing the papers or taking delivery. One of the reasons I like Tr ueCar.com is that they give y ou that price before you ever go into the dealership. Costco does not give you the price but they require the car dealer to give you an official Costco price sheet for the specific car yo u' re buying. Unfortunately this doesn't always happen. I r ecently mystery shopped a C ostco dealer and they did not show my mystery shopper the C ostco price sheet, but they said it was. My definition of an "outthe-door price" is one that excludes only government taxes and fees. All too often, the car dealers add their own fees which they variously refer to as doc fees, dealer fee, prep fee, administrative fee, dealer handling fee, electronic filing fee, etc. One of my gripes with Tr ueCar.com is that they give y ou a "TrueCar Price" but below that in the fine print they say "Dealer's Name charges a $XXXX.00 Documentary Fee." Be sure that you r ead your auto buying services quoted price very carefully including the fine print. Another common trick by dealers is to add "dealer installed accessories" to the price quoted by the auto buying service. My advice is to never buy a dealer installed accessory, only factory installed. There are always exceptions to this but be very careful when making one. D ealer accessories are typically low cost items, virtually worthless with hugely inflated prices. Examples are nitrogen in tires, paint sealant, fabric coat, pin stripes, VIN's etched in glass, and roadside assistance. If y ou cannot get the dealer to agree to the price that was given you by the auto-buying service, leave the dealership, call your auto buying service, and report that dealer. Usually there are other dealers in y our area who are also affiliated with the same buying service and they may recommend one of them. The auto buying service is paid by the dealer and that can be a problem. They have to keep the dealers happy so that they can make money. They like to keep the car buyers happy so that they will come back and tell their friends. The wise auto-buying service will realize that the best long term strategy is to put the car buyer over the dealer. The auto buying service's first loyalty should be to the car buyer, not the dealer. This means that services should police their dealers and cull out those dealers who try to take advantage of car buyers by r aising the agreed upon prices. Auto buying services offer safe way to buy ON CARSEARL STEWART

FORT PIERCE That's r ight! Gourmet food trucks are making their way to downtown Fort Pierce, bringing delicacies to the ri verfront area for all to enjoy. Whether you're in the mood for a specialty cupcake or a gourmet taco, chances are you will be able to satisfy your craving on Fr iday evening. S t.

"W e are so excited to bring this event to Fort Pierce," said Dawn Doyle, president of the Parent Teacher Organization of St. Andrew's. "We couldn't believe that the food trucks hadn't made their way here yet, so we worked really hard to make it happen." This event is likened to a massive outdoor picnic where a plethora of different food trucks prepare food that is cooked to order. The trucks are run by chefs who make the gourmet cuisine in front of customers. There is a great deal of fusion cuisine, comfort foods and desserts to choose from. P atrons should prepare for some long lines, but they are worth the wait. "W e have studied other F ood Truck events to try and prepare for this one," Ms. Doyle said. "We are hoping to have everything run smoothly. This is our first time and we're getting our feet wet, but we're anxious to get this event off the ground. It's going to be great for the downtown area, for Fo rt Pierce and for the community." The whole family is welcome and encouraged to attend since this is a family friendly atmosphere and everyone is invited. There will be a cash bar available, too.

Fo r tunately I had checked my bank account Wed. night (within the 48 hour period you're allowed to report unauthorized transactions) so a man at the customer service line which is open 24/7 was able to file a dispute and stop the transaction for me; all the money was replaced by Friday morning, thank goodness. I was using the new "Self-service" machine, they just put them in a month or so ago and the first time I used it I was delighted, it saves standing in long lines, etc. The second time I used it, not so good! I'd put money from my debit card on a shopping card to buy gas, so I could save three cents a gallon. Not much of a savings when somebody rips off your debit card number and uses it online to buy hundreds of dollars' worth of stuff. So be careful. Christmas is around the corner and the scammers are out there looking for little ole ladies who don't look like they know enough to check their bank accounts on line every day.Can't feel safeThere are so many things to worry about these days. There are so many crimes being committed by young and old alike. It's impossible to feel safe leaving your windows open or going for a walk in the evening time. It's as if we live in a time in which we must carry a stick or worse, a gun, to feel safe. Enough with commercialsT oday we are flooded with cable TV, Direct TV and Dish N etwork programming. These are old technology and old money-making schemes, and we are bombarded with commercial after commercial, with little entertainment, unlike the good old days, when each and every program had at least one sponsor, we now have as many as 10 or more 30-second annoying commercials. Why not have these satellite programs on the new digital side channels of the local T.V. stations? That would be as close to ala carte programming as possible. The religious and Latino channels are already enjoying the riches of local audiences, so why not CNN, MSNBC, Br avo, HBO, etc. Cable TV, Dish network and Direct TV are expensive for the amount of real entertainment. The massive doses of commercials are negating the entire entertainment process. Using digital channels will also spread the profits around to our local affiliates and, as a result, our local governments will benefit more. I am aware that these networks especially cable TV pay hefty fees for use of the local utilities, but new taxes are being discovered all the time, so why not from digital TV instead of satellite TV programming?F ood stamp run aroundI have a rant about our state's assistance programs. I have had to apply for food stamps since having to stop working due to injuries sustained from a car accident. Ev eryone has proclaimed that the "new system" of obtaining assistance from the state will be very userfriendly and easier in the long run for all involved. Well, I don't feel that way at all. I applied for food stamps and temporary cash assistance due to the fact that I have no income and have a child and the child support that I do get is very sporadic. (I am thankful that I do receive it when I do.) I couldn't apply online and had to phone in. I had them send me the application in the mail and then when I received it, I faxed in my proof of income, mortgage, utilities and medical bills, and I did so the day after I received my letter from DCF. I used a friend's fax machine, because I couldn't afford to use a professional one that charged $1 a page, much less I don't have use of my car due to no insurance or an up-todate registration. I waited 15 days, like the lady had said, for expedited food stamps. I called many times after the 15 days were up, trying to get an answer only to be hung up on several times due to too many lines being used. After 30 days of not hearing from them again, by mail, I w ent online, since they had an updated website for applicants and found that I "chose not to apply." I wanted to pull every last hair out of my head. I had to repeat the process all over again. In between, I've had friends drive me to the Salvation Army and a few other small food banks so as to not starve. After applying for the expedited food stamps online, where they take your information and just believe it for now, kind of thing, I finally got some help, 35 days later, of $150 for one month, of expedited food stamps. I still had to fax in my proof paperwork again and this would be for the next six months. I could see online how much they already allotted to us and was quite excited that we would be able to eat every day, much less three times a day. This time a friend took me to a professional fax and paid the $9 for my fax usage. I have been waiting 22 days for this month's allotment of food stamps. I have called DCF three times and got through: once a lady told me that yes, my food stamp allotment was approved and it would be available in 24 hours. The second time a lady said that she didn't know what the holdup was, that it looked like they were just processing it and I would have to wait for the social worker to approve it and they would send a letter. F or some reason, the system isn't working for my case even though I have no income and was diligent in getting all my proof of income and bills into the DCF office. The third time I called, I asked if there was anything they we re waiting on and was told no and I had to wait for my social worker to approve it. I was told I can't ask for my social worker by name for some reason and no one seems to know what's going on. The website tells me how much is allotted to us and we can't get it. I don't understand. Why we are waiting so long? Especially when we were allotted the amount and all the T's were crossed and I's were dotted. We're hungry.Stop for busesC orrect me if I'm wrong, but isn't it a law to stop when a school bus is flashing its lights and slowing down to stop? Don't drivers realize that means a child is near and about to walk to get on that bus? That child could be coming in any direction. Drivers be aware. There have been 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. Well, it finally happened. Your computer has issues and it's time to call for help. It happens to every computer user eventually that dreaded call to tech support. This week, I will share some tips that can make that inevitable call to tech support go smoothly. The first question that y ou have to ask yourself is: "Who are you going to call?" That answer depends on the issues you are having. F or instance, if you are having Internet connection issues, you may want to call y our Internet provider (AT&T, Comcast, Road R unner, or whoever you are using to connect to the I nternet). If y ou are having hardware issues, such as problems accessing a printer or other device, you may need to contact support for that device. F or problems with your operating system (Windows won't load, etc.), a call to M icrosoft's tech support may be in order. If y ou are having problems with the computer itself (getting errors or beep codes as soon as you turn it on), you may want to call the manufacturer of the computer. That's a lot of decisions to make even before making the call, but you need to be clear about the nature of the problem. Answering these questions beforehand will help clarify y our issues before you make the call. Also, don't forget the warranty. S ome devices may carry warranties that last years. It would be frustrating to fix or replace a device only to find out you could have had it fixed under warranty. Once you're clear on whom to call and why, sit in front of the computer when y ou make the call. There is little that any phone support technician can do for you if you are not sitting in front of the machine. You have to be his "eyes and ears" so make sure that when you call for help, you are at your computer. After spending some time on hold, (nothing I can help with there) you will finally get someone on the line. R emember: This person is new to your issue and has no idea what you have or have not tried yet. He's going to ask you questions and perhaps have you click some things. Ev en if he is having you click something you have already clicked, comments such as, "I already tried that," don't help. He hasn't tried anything yet and needs to start somewhere. Also keep in mind that even if your tech support person has a thick accent, he probably does this type of thing 40 hours a week and knows exactly what he's looking for. When he asks you to click something and you don't immediately see it, don't instantly reply with, "I don't have that." Do a thorough scan of all of the icons in whatever screen y ou are looking in and make sure. Nine times out of 10, you'll find it. F ollow the directions the support person gives you, and try not to get distracted by all the other stuff that will pop up on the way. Stay focused on his or her instructions and you'll usually get through most issues quickly and without too much frustration. H opefully, you won't have to make that call, but when you do, having as much information in front of you will help. Things such as any specific error messages that may be popping up, what you were doing when the problem occurred and so on. This information is invaluable to the tech support person on the other end of the phone. If y ou have a "quick question," that's great. Just r emember that 99 percent of all tech support calls are just quick questions. It's the answer that can drag on for hours.

The Common Core Standards have been adopted by 45 states and the District of C olumbia. Governor Scott has been a supporter for three years, but now states he supports the standards but not the test. State Representative Debbie Mayfield has proposed a bill, (HB25), r equiring more extensive public hearings and cost analysis for implementing the standards. The establishment of national standards and a national test is the BEST way to prepare students in the U nited States. For too long, students have been evaluated by state tests. The performance on a state test does not show how well educated the Florida students are in comparison to students throughout the country. For the Governor to say he supports the Common Core S tandards but not the national test is counter-productive. How ever, I can understand the Governors wanting to create a state test using the C ommon Core Objectives.

LUCIE The fourth annual Child's Cry for Help's "Weathering Purple Reign" luncheon and silent auction, sponsored by the Peter W. Busch Family F oundation, will take place No v. 1 at The Legacy Golf & T ennis Club in Port St. Lucie starting at 11:30 a.m. The silent auction and lunch will begin at noon. Pa r ticipants will take part in an individual Monarch butterfly release to empower others about the transformation one must take to ov ercome domestic violence. The emphasis of the event is to educate, raise awareness and empower others about domestic violence while changing societal attitudes and inspiring the community about this epidemic. Domestic violence transcends all ethnic, racial, sexual orientation and socioeconomic boundaries. Domestic violence is not prejudice to its victims. One out of three women are victims in their lifetime. Over 10 million children a year are witness to domestic violence. Domestic violence is a critical national problem affecting all of us in every community from our children to the elderly. The Keynote speaker will be Aria Dunham, on-air personality for Sea View Radio's "Game Changer" show, founder, president and CEO of Platform-Power, advocate and survivor of domestic violence. The silent auction will consist of decorative baskets and gift certificates ranging from an in-home wine tasting from PRP Wine, a cruise for two nights and three days to the Bahamas from C elebration Cruise Lines, to a doggie lovers basket from Love on A Leash. The event's art sponsor is Edna Hibel. O ctober is the National Domestic Violence Awareness month. Activities during the month provide an excellent opportunity for the community to learn more about domestic violence. All proceeds will benefit Child's Cry for Help. T ickets for luncheon are $35 per person. All ages are w elcome to attend.

FA U Harbor Branch will host a workshop for the "Our G lobal Estuary" initiative, which will bring together 50 invited participants from across the U.S. and from Australia. T op estuarine scientists, r esource managers, urban planners, environmental lawyers, tribal, coastal and ocean observing system managers, educators and other stakeholders will come together to work toward new solutions for regional and global sustainability. There will be a press conference following the final session of the workshop on Oct. 22 at noon on the Harbor Br anch campus (5600 U.S. 1 No r th, Fort Pierce.) There is an urgent need to anticipate and manage envir onmental changes in estuaries, both regionally and globally," said Ant—nio Baptista, P h.D., workshop co-chair and director of the NSF Science and Technology Center for C oastal Margin Observation & Pr ediction. "These critical but sensitive ecosystems provide some of the world's most valuable natural resources, and are essential for economic and environmental sustainability." This workshop is the first in a series of events which aim to provide a powerful set of recommendations to answer science questions, aid management, develop policy and promote stewardship activities. "I am excited to be a part of this ground-breaking initiative," said Margaret Leinen, P h.D., workshop co-chair and director of Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San D iego. "Bringing together this high-level group of experts is the first step in providing recommendations that can be used to respond to the risks and opportunities facing the world's estuaries." The workshop, funded by proceeds from the HBOI F oundation's annual "Love Y our Lagoon" dinner held each February, has been coordinated by a nine-member steering committee of nationwide experts with backgrounds in observatories, estuarine science and management. This workshop would not be possible without the grant support from the HBOI Foundation and the hard work of the steering committee," said M egan Davis, Ph.D., workshop co-chair and HBOI associate executive director of r esearch. "We are very pleased that HBOI was chosen as the location to host this timely and much needed national workshop on estuarine observ ation and predication networks."

U pon Governor Scott being elected, he reduced the education budget by $1 billion dollars. To use a state produced test will create the r esults the legislators want the public to see curve the r esults any way you want. The students in Florida deserve a good education built upon the Common Co re S tandards and national testing. The states collectively will be creating the national test; it will not be the federal government. Only then will the students of Florida r eally understand how they are performing when matched with students throughout the United S tates. Florida is famous for producing some of the best high school football teams and marching bands. Now is the time for Florida to produce the best students in the U nited States.

If any of y ou are like me, the consistency is sometimes off and they're never perfectly browned or round. When I visited Golden B ear Pancake House, I wasn't aware I was about to eat the perfect pancake. The restaurant was packed with families enjoying breakfast and lunch. My guest and I arrived late morning and decided to find out what all the fuss was about. The owner and head chef, Alex Fotsis, sat down with us and talked pancakes, the restaurant business and how to make customers smile. "I 'v e been doing this a long time and I know the key to keeping a customer happy," Mr. Fotsis said. "I try to make sure the food they eat is better than they've ever had. I want the pancakes to be perfect. I want them to try a new breakfast dish and be amazed. It's what I pride myself in." And, perfect pancakes they were. The chef sent out bacon, scrambled eggs, hash browns, grits, toast and a healing serving of pancakes for my guest and me to try. Be fore I touched anything else in front of me, I bit into a fluffy, yet faintly crispy, hot, perfectly r ound pancake. The pancakes are served with a choice of syrups and toppings, including fruit and whipped cream. Mr. Fotsis then sent out a Mexico City skillet ta combination of chorizo sausage, diced onions, tomatoes and jalapeno peppers with shredded W isconsin cheddar and M onterey jack cheeses. The incredible dish is served with homemade salsa and sour cream. Each of the components of our breakfast was delicious. The grits were creamy and cooked to perfection, the bacon was crispy and the eggs couldn' t have been more enjoyable. As we were enjoying our breakfast, Mr. Fotsis asked us to try his homemade biscuits and gravy. The buttermilk biscuits were out of this world and were Ghost tour sure to fright, delight FORT PIERCE Join M ain Street Fort Pierce for a memorable, leisurely walk into the ghosts of Fort Pierce past during the G hosts of Fort Pierce Past H istoric Walking Tour on W ednesday, Oct.30.

The park is now called Legoland and it has something to offer for all ages. U pon first entering the park, you are greeted by an array of colorful animal figures made from Lego bricks. In fact, most everything you see is made from colorful Legos throughout the park. If y ou have been there when it was Cypress Ga r dens, you will recognize many of the buildings and landmarks. In the center of the park instead of topiaries and plant gardens, you will find miniature cities all made from Legos. It is highly detailed and amazing to look at. You will need quite a bit of time to explore this part of the park. As you move deeper into the park, you will see the all-familiar waterfall with all the landscaping just as it was in the old park. The landscaping is amazing with a varied collection of tropical and native plants surrounding the water fall. It is truly an amazing sight. If y ou follow the park all the way to the end, you will hit the pot of gold. This is where the original Cypress Ga r dens botanical garden is located. It is worth the price of admission just to see these gardens. The botanical gardens abound with plant species from both native to varieties from all corners of the globe. The garden paths are clean and the gardens are all welltrimmed and manicured. While on your stroll, be sure to have your picture taken at the historic gazebo. Also, be sure to spend some time at the old Banyan tree that is in the center of the gardens. After leaving the gardens, be sure to see the ski show. Although themed different from the original, it is truly entertaining to see. T oday I want to talk about a couple of the plants that I encountered on the tour that has a very interesting background. The first is a plant called the Traveler's P alm. The Traveler's Palm (ravenala madagascariensis) is actually not a palm at all. This plant is a member of the bird-of-paradise family. In fact, looking at the plant from a distance, it is very difficult to tell them apart. This plant has a very interesting history. Back in the explorer days, this plant actually was a source of water for travelers, hence the name traveler's palm. The stems hold rainwater that can be used as an emergency drinking supply. Each stem can hold as much as a pint of water. I ts huge paddle shaped leaves that indeed have both a tropical and a majestic appearance characterizes the plant. Tr aveler's Palm is a very easy to grow plant choice and can really offer a distinct tropical look to any landscape. The plant requires a fairly sunny location and should be planted so the shape of the plant goes from east to w est. I was not able to do that with mine but the plant is still thriving beautifully. They require moderate water but once wellestablished they are very easy to maintain. The main maintenance issue with this plant would be trimming off the dry and/or broken branches. Although quite hardy, they can be damaged in high winds or hard freeze conditions. My plant has been through both and has r ecovered every time. Y ou can fertilize with a high nitrogen fertilizer during the summer growing season if desired. This will help to keep the dark green leaf color and aid in faster plant growth. These plants are available at many local nurseries. The next plant I would like to mention is a variety known as the Song of India. The Song of India is a tropical plant that has long narrow leaves that have green centers with a creamy y ellow edge. The plant can grow up to four feet high. This plant is often used as an indoor tropical but can also be planted outdoors in a tropical garden or on a deck or patio in a pot. Song of India requires bright light but will burn if placed in all day direct sun. The plant is easy to grow and only r equires small amounts of water. They do not like their feet to be soaking wet. Since the plant loves humidity, it grows quite well in our area. This plant is widely available at many local nurseries. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

TREASURE COAST When planning Halloween festivities its important to remember that safety is essential for both the parents of little ghouls and goblins, but also for homeowners who will pass out the treats. He re are a few tips that will hopefully prepare parents for make the evening fun for everyone. 1.Encourage the kids to use facial make up instead of a mask. 2.Spend the extra dollar and purchase quality makeup. You don't want your kid to have that same look w eeks later. 3.If possible, design the costume to accommodate a sweater or even a jacket underneath depending on the weather. 4.Make sure that all costumes and accessories are flame resistant. 5.Keep in mind how much walking they'll be doing for their age. You don't want to have to carry your little ghoul home. 6.Carry extra bags to dump candy in so the kids don't get overly tired. 7. If you have more than one kid to supervise, try bringing a wagon or cart to unload the candy in as they go door to door. 8.If you're taking other kids with you, set out the r ules before you leave and make sure they understand. 9.Instruct the kids to stay with you and off the lawns and out of the gardens. 10.Remind the kids to say thank you, even if they get crappy candy. 11.Be prepared to carry their props after a while. 12.Inspect all candy when y ou get home. Throw away homemade, unwrapped or open candy. 13.Let them have one piece of wrapped candy while on the walk as a treat/break. 14.Bring a flashlight and give them glow sticks to w ear. 15.Don't let them walk in the middle of the streets. C ars will still travel on roads O ctober 31st. 16.If the front light is out but they have Halloween decorations, there is a good chance that they have no more candy. 17.If the lights are out and don't have any decorations, the people are most likely hiding in the back and have no candy to give. 18.Carry a small, portable first aid kit for those little cuts and injuries. 19.Many people bring their dogs with them and dress them up in costumes such as a hot dog or a devil. I nstruct the kids to ask the o wner if they can pet the animal before they do. There is a good chance that the animal is embarrassed to be in a costume and may want to take it out on a kid. 20.When the kids go to the door, stay close by and watch carefully. 21.Set a strict curfew for older kids that go out on their own. 22.Kids are never to go into the house unless you know them. 23.If you have to drive, slow down more than usual. 24.Give the kids a snack before they go out. They won't complain about being hungry and want to eat the candy. 25.Take half the candy and place it in the freezer for use in the summer. He re are a few tips for homeowners on Halloween: 1. Keep the path to your door clear of all obstacles and well lit. 2. Don't terrorize the kids. It 's all about fun and not making them wet their pants. 3. Be extremely careful with the candle in your pumpkin so that nothing bursts into flames, including a kid's costume. Consider using a battery powered light or glow sticks. 4.Use flashlights, glow sticks or electric lights with the power cord safe and secured. 5. If you have a dog, keep it in another room and away from the door. 6. If you're going to give candy, give only store bought and wrapped items such as chocolate bars, chips, etc. Loose candy will be thrown out by the parents. 7.Alternative giving can include pencils, erasers or stickers with a Halloween theme. 8. If you've spent a lot of time on your Halloween display, you may want to consider putting some sort of safe fencing around it so that everyone can enjoy it without it being trampled. 9.Halloween candy is magically calorie and fat free on October 31st so feel free to use the "one for you, one for me" rule. 10.Check out our website for more tips and special effects.

JENSEN BEACH A Bahamian marketplace will line the streets, carnival r ides will light up the sky and more bands than ever before will thrill festivalgoers from near and far during this year's Pineapple Festival in Jensen Beach. The 26th annual festival celebrates the city's 125th anniversary in a big way with live music, street vendors, parades and entertainment. Jensen Beach's signature event will showcase the streets of Downtown and all that it has to offer for locals and tourists alike. R onald Rose, executive director of the Jensen Beach Chamber of Commerce said it's not only a hit with those who live in Martin County y ear round, but gives winter r esidents a reason to head south a bit early, draws former residents back to their old stomping grounds, and those looking for a vacation spot an exciting destination. Almost 40 bands, including local groups like Fresh C atch and The Ohana Band, will perform on four stages ov er the three-day event and two headlining concerts are scheduled for each night instead of the usual one per evening. "I t' s pretty much non-stop entertainment," Mr. Rose said. This year's headliners include Joel Crouse and Jerr od Neimann on Friday, The M arshall Tucker Band and Little River Band on Saturday, and Kidz Bob Kids and The Expendables on Sunday. "W ith our incredible number of headline concerts we're really looking forward to creating a worldclass event," Mr. Rose said. B ut what he is looking forward to most is reconnecting with the residents from Eleuthera, Bahamas who come to the festival every y ear to present an authentic B ahamian Market and entertain with a colorful J unkanoo band. Ca r nival rides, including the ever-popular Ferris wheel, are always a hit with kids who can grab an unlimited ride wristband for $20 on Sunday. M agic shows, dancing, jugglers and kids' workshops will fill out the entertainment lineup for the w eekend. Pa r king for the event is limited, so there are shuttles that run between the festival and Jensen Beach High School every 20 minutes. A dmission is $20 at the door or discount tickets can be purchased for $15 up until Nov. 7 at Sonic DriveIn locations in Jensen B each, Fort Pierce, Lake Pa r k, Vero Beach and Lake Wo r th.

If I had to call a course my "home course", H ammock Creek in Palm City would likely be my choice. The club sponsored my weekly golf radio show for several years, and I enjoyed a round at the course several times a month for quite some time. I know the course almost as w ell as the back of my hand. A bout four years ago, Ray F inch purchased the course. He spent the next y ear or so using his knowledge and experience to complete many upgrades to the course and facilities. One of his first upgrades was to put asphalt and curbing in the parking lot and bag drop areas. The curbing may not sound like much, but it helped tremendously with traffic flow and drainage, and r eally set off the new landscaping around the clubhouse and cart barn. This past summer H ammock Creek closed from early June until just this past week. Finch's desire was to upgrade the greens with new Tiff Eagle grass, improve drainage on and around the greens and drop a few more tweaks here and there around the course. Ha mmock Creek, located within a mile of Florida's Tu rn pike and also I-95, originally opened in 1995. The course was the first designed by the father-son team of Jack Nicklaus and J ack Nicklaus II and quickly became one of the finest daily fee courses in the area. It was also home to the Golden Bear Tour, hosted many mini tours, U.S. Open Qualifying, and even hosted the Taste of Ma r tin County. Those who have played H ammock Creek know it for its expansive fairways, large greens, variety of holes and friendly staff. The course is also tops with many lady golfers as it features few forced carries and greens complexes that allow for many different shots around the green. The course also features the Visage GPS yardage system on every cart, allowing for easier club selection and hole management. There are even tips on how to play each hole. If yo u' re hungry, you can also order some food to pick up at the turn or have waiting when you finish your r ound. The staff can even use the system to alert you to approaching storms or r espond to a lost club or emergency. One impressive thing that I learned is that the entire staff has returned from the summer hiatus. The same smiling, friendly faces that have been a staple at Hammock Creek are there again awaiting y our return. For me it was like seeing old friends and it immediately put me in a great mood. On the course, golfers who have played here before will find just a few changes other than the new and impressively improved greens. The most obvious is the newly paved cart paths. Fr om the first tee all the way to the 18th green, the paths have been fixed and r epaved. It's a nice smooth r ide the whole way around. The other changes come from clearing out or thinning palmettos, knocking down tall grass and previously un-kept areas to keep golfers from having a blind tee shot. The area behind the third green is one such place. Us ed to be if you hit your approach long, the ball would tumble across the cart path and simply disappear in tall weeds and palmettos. That area has been cleaned out and you now have a good 10 feet for y our ball to settle. The areas directly in front of the fifth and seventh tees have also been cleaned up and knocked down, allowing golfers an unimpeded view of the fairway. The cart path on number five, no longer backtracks toward the fairway before heading ov er to the sixth tee, making for a safer environment when the group behind you is ready to hit their second shots. Ha mmock Creek has five sets of tees playing from just over 5,000yards up to 7,119yards. The course is usually set up to play hard and fast, giving your drives some extra distance. There is also plenty of room to hit driver on almost every hole. There are few nasty bunkers to avoid, but most won't ruin your day should y ou find them. F inally, what you've been waiting to hear about: the greens. They are, to put it mildly, wonderful. Every putt I hit rolled smoothly and predictably. They are firm and fast, and should only get better as they mature. The design of each appears to be almost exactly as it was before. No strange bumps or false fronts have been slipped in on us. It truly is like going back home. F or more information, visit www.hammockcreekgolfclub.com or call (772) 220-2599 and speak to any of the club's friendly staff.
