076735 Boost small businesses on Nov. 30 ST. LUCIE COUNTY Most shoppers are scouring sales papers searching for the best deals taking place on Black Friday and Cyber M onday. However, to keep money in the local economy and to help locally owned shops boost holiday sales, on Nov. 30, residents are invited to Small Business Saturday, a day to support businesses that create jobs and boost economies in our own backyard. The Small Business Saturday movement encourages the community to shop small the day after most shoppers spend hours fighting crowds in larger department stores. Now in its fourth year, millions of consumers around the country are expected to shop on Small Business S aturday this year. The idea behind this national movement is to teach how smart it is to shop local, said Doris TIlman, M ain Street Fort Pierce manager. When a consumer buys from a locally owned business, 52 percent of what is spent remains in the local economy. S hoppers searching for the perfect gift can find anything they desire at many of the small businesses located throughout the area. There is a high concentration of small businesses in downtown Fort Pierce; however, Port St. Lucie also has many Mom and Pop shops that offer most things on those lengthy Christmas lists. S pas, hair and nail salons, tattoo shops and restaurants are just a few of the locally-owned shops that offer gift certificates. The convenience of gift certificates takes some of the painstaking what if questions out of buying. M any of the little quaint stores offer things that arent found in larger department stores. Unique gift ideas are abound in many of the little shops that sometimes get looked over during the hustle and bustle of the holidays. B eing aware of small businesses all through the year is very important, said Ms. Tilman. But now, during the holidays, making sure that the money being spent on lavish gifts is kept in the community is very important. It makes sure that everyone not only has a happy holiday, but it sustains the local economy year-round. F or a list of locally owned businesses, visit your local Chamber of C ommerce website.

The Tree of Life is a memorial to organ donors.V eteran receives new homeST. LUCIE COUNTY Just in time for Thanksgiving, a wounded U.S. Army veteran has been given a mortgage-free home in Port St. Lucie. Sgt. Noe Santos Dilone received the keys to his new home in Port St. L ucie in a ceremony at the house earlier in November. The donation was made possible through a partnership between Bank of America and the Military Warriors Support F oundation. Sgt. Dilone was in the Army from 2003 to 2008 and served a tour in Ir aq. He suffered combat related injuries and earned a Purple Heart. Du r ing his career in the Army, Sgt. D ilone received numerous other awards, including the Bronze Star M edal, Army Good Conduct Medal, N ational Defense Service Medal, G lobal War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Iraq Campaign M edal, Army Service Ribbon and C ombat Action Badge. The home, located in Port St. L ucie, was built in 2005. It is about 2,000 square feet with four bedrooms and 2.5 baths. Repairs and upgrades included new appliances, carpet, and paint and window treatments. B ank of America announced in 2012 a three-year commitment to make available up to 1,000 properties to nonprofit organizations and local government programs that provide homes for military veterans and first responders. Since that announcement, the bank has donated more than 800 homes to nonprofits that support military service members seeking housing. A hundred of those homes are in Florida. ST. LUCIE COUNTY In an effort to empower victims against sexual violence, Mindi Fetterman is hosting the third annual "Take Back The Night," on Dec. 6. The event, which will be held at River Walk Center in Fo rt Pierce from 6-10 p.m., will help raise awareness and shatter the silence for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence. This is a way for the victims of sexual assault to speak out and to help them r elieve some of the demons they live with, said Ms. Fetterman, a survivor and advocate for victims. We hope to raise our voices so the community is aware of the dangers of sexual assault. The community is invited to participate in the third annual event to help raise awareness and shatter the silence for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence. There will be many community resources which will be on hand to answer questions and distribute literature and information on services and resources, Ms. Fetterman said. Local teenage girls who have been affected by sexual violence have hand-decorated T-shirts with personal expressions and artwork. The T-shirts will be strung on a clothesline suspended in the space as part of the Clothesline Project. The Clothesline Project is a program started in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women by offering a vehicle for women and girls affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. They then hang the shirt on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women. T ypically, when a person is a victim of a sexual assault, they are asked, F or Hometown News News@hometownnewsol.com Photo courtesy of Bank of AmericaF rom right to left: Art Kite, Consumer Market Manager; Dolores Vega, Consumer Market Manager; Noe Santos Dilone, Retired injured vet/donation recipient; Gabriel Santos, Brother of vet; Doug Sherman, Market President T reasure CoastBy Anna-Marie Menhenottnews@hometownnewsol.com See N IGHT, A2 WEEKEND WEATHERFriday: Mostly cloudy, breezy; high: 77; low: 64; high tide: 4:54 a.m.; low tide: 1 0:52 a.m. Saturday: Par tly cloudy; high: 77; low: 66; high tide: 5:48 a.m.; low tide: 11: 42 a.m. Sunday: Pa r tly cloudy; high: 79; low: 66; high tide: 6:40 a.m.; low tide: 12:31 p.m. W eather courtesy of www.weather.com

what could you have done differently to prevent what happened, Ms. Fetterman said. That doesnt prevent the crimes. It lays a sense of blame on the victim. We shouldnt be afraid to be outside at night. We have to look at the perpetrators, not the victims. We are giving a voice to the victims and trying to take away the voice of the perpetrator. A march through downtown Fort Pierce will be followed by a candlelight vigil and speak-out of victims of sexual violence sharing their stories. M any times, during the speak-out part of the event, someone comes forward for the first time to speak about how they were a victim of abuse,Ms. Fetterman said. One in every three women is the victim of a sexual assault, often at the hands of someone she knows and loves. Whether it is in the form of incest, date-rape, intimate partner violence, or sexual assault by a stranger, without the community's awareness, it will continue to happen, Ms. Fetterman said. "She might be your sister, your daughter, your niece, or even you. Shes a victim of a crime we dont speak about comfortably and shes probably suffering in a silence that could ruin her life. It's important that victims break the silence and know that there are local r esources that she, or he, can turn to. Y ou dont have to be victim of sexual violence or even know someone who has been, though chances are you do know someone who hasnt shared it yet. The event is sponsored by The Inner Truth Project.

TREASURE COAST The YMCA of the Treasure C oast is growing, which means the organizations programs and community outreach will be expanding, too. The nonprofit that aims to strengthen the community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility recently promoted three current employees, filling one position that had been empty for several years. I think a lot is going to change, said Christine C oller, COO for the YMCA of the Treasure Coast. She has heard about the newly promoted employees goals for the area and she cant wait to see what comes of them. It was all part of the YMCAs strategic plan to grow and expand their services which required a bit of internal restructuring. It just so happened that the company already employed skilled staff members who we re looking for more opportunity and responsibility. Elisha Stoecklin, who started at the YMCA 13 years ago as a lifeguard climbed the ranks and is now branch executive director of the S tuart location. She was senior program director previously and is looking forward to advancing the YMCAs mission in her new position. M y goal is two-fold: I want to continue to improve the programs and services that we offer and educate the community about what the Y does, Ms. Stoecklin said. S hawn Keil has been a YMCA employee for 19 years and as district executive director will oversee programming, volunteers, staff and fundraising for the YMCAs in Indiantown, Indian River, Okeechobee and S t. Lucie counties. Its in St. L ucie County that Mr. Keil plans to do the most work, expanding programs and building awareness. I t s a very rewarding, challenging job, Mr. Keil said. J ami Melnick is the new Association Childcare Director, a promotion from Childcare Services Director at the S tuart Branch. She will now be overseeing the preschools in Stuart and Indiantown. I v e worked very closely with all three of them and they all have a passion for the Y, Ms. Coller said. I hope they achieve things for the Y that we werent able to before. Ms. Coller believes the possibilities of what the YMCA can achieve with a staff like this are endless and was glad to provide the opportunities to individuals who are passionate about the YMCA and their mission of building strong families and communities.

Thank you for remembering the Veterans of all wars and all of our Fallen Heroes.F rom the perspective of a snowbirdI am writing this in response to a letter I read from someone complaining about us snowbirds. It struck a nerve with me because I recently had a run in at the grocery store checkout line with someone who had similar feelings. I said some things out of frustration that I was not very proud of, however, I am tired of having to defend being a snowbird. Over the past 15 years I have been lucky enough to winter in Florida. I consider Florida to be home to me, as well as my home up north. I realize it is a blessing to have two homes, and I am grateful, but I dont understand why I need to apologize for it. I cant speak for all people, but this idea that snowbirds think they are better is just not true. There are arrogant people everywhere, whether they are snowbirds, full-time residents, on vacation, or just passing through. A rude person will be a rude person no matter where they are from, where they live or how long they stay in one particular place. Fur thermore, whether people like to admit it or not, snowbirds and tourists bring revenue to Florida. I dont come here for free. I pay my property taxes, shop at local businesses, bought my car here, and I am not the only one. I come from a tourist town up north and understand what it feels like to have to deal with heavy traffic during certain seasons and events. Yes, it can be frustrating, but many of our local businesses rely on these people to get them through their slow season as well. Do I get angry when I am driving behind someone who doesnt know the area and may find themselves in the wrong lane? Yes. But there are some horrible drivers who live there all year long as w ell. There was a gentleman who recently told me to let him know when I was going back to Massachusetts so that I could take some people with me. Maybe he was just having a bad day, I know his comment made me speak out of frustration, but no one deserves to be made to feel that they are not welcome. I am such a horrible person because I only live here 7 months out of the year? Do snowbirds cause you so many problems that you have to make a rude comment to an 80 year old widow at the grocery store? Should people in Massachusetts be equally as r ude to me when I am there because I dont live there all y ear? One thing I love about coming to my Florida home is how kind and accommodating most of the stores and r estaurants are to people my age. I am grateful for these people. It takes so little to be friendly and kind to people and it goes a long way. Truthfully, there are so many more nice people than there are mean, but the mean ones, unfortunately, are so hurtful. M aybe traffic is a little heavier when I am here, or you may have to wait a little longer at your favorite restaurant, but this is my home, too, and I shouldnt have to feel bad about that. It is hurtful to hear, I hate when the snowbirds are here, or go home snowbirds. Sorry to disappoint y ou, I am home. -Clara the SnowbirdW ebsite messThe health care website mess and the confusing health plan offerings are perfect reasons for less government. U ntil we begin to elect proven business professionals who can effectively operate an organization and make prudent decisions, and dismiss lawyers and life-long politicians, we are doomed. Plenty of candy for teensIn r esponse to the rant about not wanting the older children to Trick-or Treat at his/her house: Seriously, these children could be out doing drugs, getting drunk, having premarital sex, instead, they are asking for a lousy piece of candy. I say if you are old, young or just young at heart, come to my house there is candy for everyone!Snowbird loveGranted, the "Snowbirds" make us year round residents crazy. Granted the traffic gets unbearable when they arrive and it is almost impossible to get into a restaurant or find a decent parking space. However, please consider that they do support our economy and without them our state would suffer. We do not pay city or state income taxes, our sales tax is much lower than in other states and they pay property taxes for year round use and are only here for part of the year. I have been a full time resident of Florida for more than 20 years. Let's face it, the summers are brutal and the winters are fabulous. I say, even the birds know enough to get out when it's hot and come back when it's cold up north. Are we all jealous that they can afford the luxury we would love to have? Or are they and the birds smarter than we are?F ood stamp costThe cost of food stamps has grown 258 percent since 2000, largely because of relaxed eligibility rules issued by Obama administration. This is fiscally untenable. More importantly, our dependence on government to give money to the poor reduces our responsibility to giving. We are allowing bureaucrats to take our tax money to let us off the hook morally. Not a positive trend.Whose laws do we obey?We are told Obamacare is the law of the land and, therefore, must be implemented, funded and enforced. On the other hand, the president has done everything he can to dismantle and discourage enforcement of our immigration laws. Are his laws the only ones we must obey?Do they really care?Government agencies do not care about the children. We call them about abuse in the home and they go in and question the child in front of the child that is being abused. Dont they know better? Once the agency leaves, the child is then subjected to abuse again. Why would you question a child in front of their abusers? Its no wonder people dont trust them. If a child is stabbing themselves with a pencil or cutting themselves and hurting animals, there is something going on in the home. The workers need to listen to the child, not the parent. Thats why there is so much violence in the world. There is raping and killing, and we wonder why this kind of thing goes on. And all the agency does is give the parent an anger management course. Thats not going to help these poor children.We need helpIm trying to raise my grandchildren on disability. The r unaround that people get when they apply for government assistance is horrible. The economy is poor and so are the people who are trying to survive. The government makes trying to get by nearly impossible.Clean up after your dogI quote from a page of a page-a-day calendar if only to show that I'm not the only one who feels this way: "Dog Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail newsfp@hometownnewsol.com. C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. One of the pitfalls Web surfers are bound to encounter are the hideous advertisements that are created to look like official W indows messages. If you've surfed the Web at all, then you've seen them; they look like regular Windows dialogue boxes complete with the red, round X that denotes a Windows error and an ominous message like "Your system is dangerously low on resources" or "Your system is unprotected and is open to hackers." Us ually, these messages (after alarming you that something is wrong) will invite you to click what looks like a normal Windows button to resolve the problem. What happens when you click it? Nine out of 10 times, y ou are brought to a Web site selling some type of optimization or security software. To make this tactic even more insidious, the messages usually will have the three standard buttons on the top, r ight-hand corner you know, the Minimize, Restore and Close buttons. The deceptive part of including those three buttons within the ad is that they do NOT minimize, restore or close the ad! Usually, those buttons are a part of the advertisement and clicking "Close" (or any of the other buttons) will give y ou the same result as if you had clicked the fake "OK" button. Arghh! It's infuriating. I once encountered a Web ad that was promoting some type of security software. The text of the ad said something like this: "Internet hackers are a menace that can infiltrate y our computer and YOU ARE NOT PROTECTED; click here to see just what kind of information hackers can see about your computer." Then there was a link, and when I clicked it, up popped a window displaying the contents of my hard drive. Wo w, I thought to myself. I wonder how many people are falling for this one? And then I proceeded to look at the source code (the underlying code that makes up a Web page) to see how they performed that trick. What I found was that they had crafted a simple link that just calls up the user's hard drive. N othing really wrong with that; you'd get the same r esults typing c:\ into the address bar of your browser and clicked "Go," but to craft it into an alarming message just to sell software? That's low. I t's amazing these companies don't get sued out of existence for deceptive advertising. What's even worse is most of the software advertised in those fake "Windows" ads is garbage anyways that is more apt to slow your machine down than to help it. OK, enough of my rant this w eek on unscrupulous advertisers. Now let's go over a few things to look for so you won't get suckered into clicking on an ad thinking it's a Windows message. F irst thing to understand is if you are on the Web with I nternet Explorer, Firefox, A OL's Browser, Google Chrome, Opera or any of the other Web browsers out there and you come across a message that looks like a W indows message (has the same title bar, minimize r estore and close button and generally looks like a message that Windows occasionally spits out) there is a strong chance that it's an ad, and if y ou click it you will be, in effect, answering that ad and be whisked away from what y ou were doing to look at a sales pitch. The second thing to r emember is you can always see where you are going when y ou are about to click something online by looking at the status bar at the bottom of your browser window. When you hold your mouse ov er a link in your Web browser, the URL or address where that link will take you is shown in the status bar before you click. If it is a genuine windows message, no address will appear in the status bar! So the next time you're online and you run across a "Windows message" telling y ou that you have a message waiting, or your system is notDont fall for fake messages COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Phone (772) 465-5656 Fax (772) 465-5301Classified (772) 465-5551 Rants & Raves (772) 465-5504Circulation Inquiries 1 -866-913-6397 circulation@hometownnewsol.comPORTST.LUCIEV oted # 1 Community Newspaper in America in 2005, 2006, 2007.

Sgt. Feola and Trooper Ivey were selected from more than 100 deserving nominees for their heroic efforts in saving the life of a motorist who was trapped in a burning vehicle last year. The 2013 r ecognition was presented by Commissioner Putnam. I m proud to recognize Sergeant Alvaro Feola and Trooper Robert Iv ey with the Florida Highway P atrol Trooper of the Year award, said Commissioner Putnam. S ergeant Feola and Trooper Ivey demonstrated true heroism by risking their own lives to save the life of a fellow Floridian in need. I want to thank Sergeant Feola and Trooper Iv ey, and all Florida Highway Patrol troopers, for their commitment and service to the state of Florida. This years Trooper of the Year award goes to two deserving members of the FHP who displayed their courage and commitment to protecting Floridians, said Col. David Br ierton, director of the Florida H ighway Patrol. Both men risked their lives to save a life, which exemplifies the commitment that a Tr ooper makes every day he or she puts on their uniform. On Jan. 14, 2012, Sergeant Feola and Trooper Ivey responded to a traffic crash that occurred on the F lorida Turnpike in St. Lucie County. When they arrived at the scene, they found a driver trapped inside a vehicle that was on fire. As the vehicle filling up with smoke, Se r geant Feola was able to break out out a window of the vehicle and Tr ooper Ivey proceeded to enter the smoke-filled car and cut the seat belt, freeing the driver. Both Troopers then pulled the driver from the burning vehicle and to a safe location. Se r geant Feola, who was a corpor al at the time of the incident, has been with the Florida Highway P atrol for 11 years. He was promoted to Sergeant in September, 2012 and is currently stationed in M iami-Dade County. Trooper Ivey has six years of service with the P atrol. For the past three and a half y ears he has worked as a K-9 handler with in Fort Pierce. The Trooper of the Year award was created more than 40 years ago by the Florida Petroleum Council to r ecognize Florida Highway Patrol Tr oopers for the work they do each day keeping Floridians and visitors safe on our roads. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement.

I'm not too crazy about dog urine, either. Even those who pick up seem to have no qualms about the urine. It's my yard. I work in it, not being able to afford yard maintenance, and thinking a dog might have been there makes me uncomfortable. Why can't dogs use their own yard?T oo many flaws in Medicaid systemThis is regarding Medicaid. My wife and I just got on Medicaid. We are taking care of our three grandchildren. I am in a program called medically needy, which means I have to have medical bills that exceed $750 a month for me to be eligible. I am not currently working, and because I am sick, I am unable to get a Medicaid number because my bills are not yet more than $750 a month, but the bills I have cant be taken care of because they dont meet the criteria. My wife makes $1,400 a month and our expenses are more than $1,600.

TREASURE COAST Wor kforce Solutions r eceived a $7,000 community development grant through Wells Fargo to provide Work Certified training to individuals in I ndian River, Martin and S t. Lucie counties to assist them in developing work r eadiness skills that will help them advance in today's job market. Wo rk Cer tified, a national career readiness certification program, was developed right here on the Research Coast by workforce development staff, area employers and community partners. "Work Certified is a dynamic program designed by employers to ensure that today's job seeker is ready to work," said Susan Waller, work certified manager/regional workshop coordinator for Workforce Solutions. "Wells Fargo has provided us with resources to not only offer this program to develop incumbent employees into viable candidates for promotions, but also to develop even more job seekers into strong, competitive candidates that are ready to work." "Employers not only want specific skills for the job they are seeking to fill, but the right attitude, confidence, and work ethic that will enhance their organization," Ms. Waller said. "The grant will allow us to provide this training to more individuals and for the first time, provide this training to employed individuals interested in pursuing promotions at their current employer." W ells Fargo makes contributions in areas they believe are important to the future of the nation's vitality and success. They prioritize support programs and organizations whose chief purpose is to benefit lowto moderateincome individuals and families. They provide grants in two primary areas: Community Development and Education. They also consider grants in Human Services, Arts and Culture, Civic Engagement, and Environment. In 2012, Wells Fargo granted more than $16 million to communities across F lorida including more than $160,000 on the Treasure Coast. Wo rk force Solutions is a private, nonprofit, Florida corporation with a Board of Directors consisting of private business, economic development and education representatives, community and state agencies, and elected officials. Members of the B oard represent the diversity of businesses, organizations and trades that operate in the Research Co ast Region, including I ndian River, Martin, O keechobee, and St. Lucie counties.

TREASURE COAST The F lorida Forest Service wants to remind everyone to enjoy the winter holidays with safety in mind. Holiday wildfire safety begins the first day as your family searches for the perfect Christmas tree and Holiday wildfire safety ends with the carefully planned disposal of the tree at the end of the holiday season. Christmas tree fires are more likely to cause a house fire; a wildfire can result from the flames. C alin Ionita, Senior For ester with the Florida Forest Service wants to provide families with a few tips on protecting yourself, your home and your property. One of the first things you can do to prevent Christmas tree fires is to pick the right tree. When choosing a Christmas tree, it is important to buy a fresh tree. Cut an inch off the bottom or ask the vendor to do it for you. This new cut will allow water to be taken up. Put your tree in water as soon as you get home and be sure to top-up daily. A fresh tree will drink about a pint a day for the first couple of days. How ever, do not think the danger ends just because the holidays are over and the tree is down. G et to know the burn laws in your area before your strike that match. It is unsafe and illegal to burn wrapping paper and gift boxes. Consider recycling instead of burning your Christmas trees in order to reduce the chances of sparking a wildfire, said M elissa Yunas, Wildfire Mitigation Specialist Florida Forest Service. Christmas trees may be ground up for mulch or used to help stabilize sand dunes, build structure for fish in a lake or pond or provide shelter for birds and other wildlife. Contact your local S olid Waste Authority for r ecycling information. If you decide to burn your Christmas tree, here are a few outdoor burning tips: -Never leave a fire unattended, and make sure it is out before you leave -Keep a shovel and water hose handy -Dont burn on windy days or when the humidity is below 35 percent -Your fire must be contained to an 8foot diameter pile or non-combustible barr el and must be at least 25feet from forests, 25feet from your house, 50feet from a paved public road and 150feet from other occupied buildings -If your fire escapes, you may be held liable for suppression costs and damage to the property of others. -Burning yard waste does not require an authorization from the Florida Forest Service, but you should check with your local city, county or Florida Forest Service officials to see if there are any r estrictions in your area F or more information about picking out the perfect tree, call (863) 655-6409 C alin.Ionita@FreshFromF lorida.com.

Pa r ades are practically a S tuart staple and the holiday season is no exception. This year marks the 53rd annual Stuart Christmas parade and the citys 100th anniversary and Stuart M ain Street, the parade organizer, is celebrating in a big way. The city will commemor ate its centennial in March, so the parade theme is Christmas past, present and future: Celebrating 100 Y ears on the St. Lucie. It s that milestone that has more than the usual number of businesses and groups interested in participating in the parade this y ear, according to Thondra Lanese, Stuart Main Street Manager. B ut the line-up for the hour-long parade is set and ov er 50 participants will be walking, driving or towing massive floats for spectators viewing pleasure. The nighttime parade will have East Ocean aglow with twinkling lights and holiday tunes and the floats will be judged on the best parade theme, illumination and musical presentation, the best representation of Stuarts 100 years, and the judges overall favorite. S anta will be there, too, but Stuart Main Street is r emaining hush-hush as to how hell arrive. I t s a tradition for the whole community, Ms. Lanese said. It will be the best parade in 100 years. The parade will run from Georgia Avenue to Monterey Road on East Ocean B oulevard on Friday, Dec. 6 starting at 7 p.m. Bu t thats not the only parade scheduled to thrill r esidents this season. The day after floats take to the street, boats will take to the water for a display the community can enjoy riverside. The 30th annual Martin C ounty boat parade, organized by Marine Industries Association of the Treasure C oast, is scheduled for Dec. 7 at 6:30 p.m. In the past, big boats, little boats and everything in between have impressed onlookers with bright lights and creative displays including swashbuckling pirates and dolphin-led Sa nta sleighs. Ev ery boat is judged on creativity, technical application of lights and effects, and enthusiasm and the best display will be awarded a trophy. I t s pretty spectacular, said Michele Miller from MIATC. Some of these guys get pretty crazy but in a good way. It s always a good time for the boaters, but spectators can make a night of it, too. Ms. Miller said it is a great opportunity to get the family together, lay out a blanket, fire up a charcoal grill, and show some enthusiasm shore side with glow sticks and air horns. F or a more refined experience, make reservations early for any of the restaura nts in Manatee Pocket where the parade ends. Holiday dinners with family and friends will only be enhanced by the parade that will continue all the way into the Pocket. The parade begins near Loggerhead Marina, cruises past the hospital and Sandsprit Park around 7:15 p.m., to Manatee Pocket where there will also be an after party at a local restaurant. The best viewing locations will be from Sandsprit Pa rk and Manatee Pocket, but parade-goers will want to arrive early for the best view. The Riverwalk stage in Downtown Stuart is a good place to see the kick off, but details will be lost in the distance between the boats and the shore. B oaters can still register to participate until Dec. 6. Br eak out the holiday sweaters, tune the radio to a favorite Christmas station, and celebrate the joy of the season with two of Stuarts most popular annual traditions.

W ith the holidays r apidly appr oaching, soon one of the most popular plants on ear th will be av ailable for sale The plant I am r eferr ing to is the color ful P oinsettia plant. These beautiful plants ar e most commonly kno wn for their r ed color but they also can come in many other colors such as white pink and some can even be multi-color ed. S ince most r etailers offer mass displays of these gems y ou will have an almost unlimited choice of which plants y ou will want to br ing home As beautiful as these plants ar e they ar e also ver y fr agile and y ou must handle them gently or the delicate br anches will br eak and fall off. D ur ing my lifetime I have unpacked and display ed no less than 100,000 of these beauties and I still do not tir e of their delicate appear ance P oinsettias have an inter esting histor y that dates back to the 14th centur y I n fact, dur ing the per iod fr om the 14th to the 16th centur y the A ztec I ndians called P oinsettias C uetlax ochitle and they used the sap to contr ol fevers and the leaves or br acts w er e used to pr oduce a r ed dy e The actual botanical name for the P oinsettia was named by the Ger man botanist W ileno w and he called it E uphorbia P ulcherr ia. H e first disco ver ed the plant gr o wing thr ough a cr ack in his gr eenhouse and he was so amaz ed at the color of the plant that he gave it that name which means v er y beautiful. F or many y ears and in fact still today many people believe that poinsettias ar e poisonous The tr uth is that they ar e not. I t is tr ue ho w ever that some people ar e aller gic to the white sap of the plant and skin irr itation can develop I f y ou ar e one of those people with sensitive skin, y ou should handle the plants with car e F or a r etailer dur ing the holiday season, having a fr esh batch of P oinsettias is like a pot of gold at the end of the r ainbo w These wonder ful plants cr eate an ey e-catching display that will cer tainly dr aw a cr o w d. S o with all these choices ho w do I pick that per fect plant? The first thing y ou want to look for ar e plants that have been r emo ved fr om their sleeves M any r etailers will display the plant with the sleeve intact and if the plant sits on the shelf too long, this can cause the leaves to y ello w and dr op and eventually the plant may die I t is much better to choose plants that have been r emo ved fr om their sleeves I f y ou do choose a plant that is sleeved, r emo ve the plastic as soon as y ou get the plant home The next thing y ou want to look for ar e plants that have little or no pollen sho wing on the flo w er clusters This is a good indicator of the matur ity of the flo w er br acts Y ou should always choose plants that have a lush, gr een color to their foliage and have a good healthy appear ance A v oid plants that look dr oop y or have y ello wing leaves While choosing y our plants handle the plants car efully so as not to br eak the adjoining plants so ever ybody can have a chance at getting a pr ime looking plant. Once y ou have chosen y our gem and y ou have y our plant in its new home some standar d TL C will ensur e that y ou get a long lifespan fr om y our new houseguest. I f y ou ar e keeping y our plant indoors and it is not near a good light sour ce occasionally put it in a sunny location so it can get the light it needs to maintain a healthy look. I f the plant star ts to dr op leaves ex cessively it is pr obably not getting enough br ight light and y ou will need to mo ve it.

I think I may have just found one. He r itage Ridge Golf Club in Hobe Sound recently invited me out to spend a morning chasing a little white golf ball across splendid green fairways and green. I love playing golf in new places, and since it had been several years since I last traveled these links, I thought it a good idea to accept. To my surprise I found out that Heritage Ridge had r ecently undergone renovations to its greens. The club's owners and management tweaked the course a bit, adding some length and getting the greens up to today's standards. At one time, the club was an equity-owned facility. W ith over 700 members, it was difficult at best for outsiders to find a tee time. As a result this sweet golf course went relatively unnoticed for many years. A bout a decade ago, the club was purchased from the original owner, who had bought it back from the membership. It was decided that the club needed more outside play to afford r enovations and upgrades. The idea worked at what y ou have now at Heritage Ridge is a course that has been polished with beautiful foliage, plush fairways and perhaps the best greens in the area. Now, he wants to share his gem with everyone. When you look at the scorecard you may ruffle y our nose and think that a par-70 layout with five sets of tees, measuring 6,014 yards from the tips could never test your game. You had better think again. The course is no easy walk-inthe-park round of golf. The course starts you off gently with a straightforward up-hill par 4. The second hole grabs your attention quite quickly. The 180-yard tee shot is downhill to a narrow, yet wide green tucked behind water and a timber wall. You do not want to be short, but long isnt a picnic either as there are numerous mounds to give you a scary pitch back toward the water. The front nine features a drivable, for some big hitters, par-4 and a trio of tricky par-5s. Heritage Ridge requires you to use y our brain, not just your muscles. The signature hole here is the 535-yard par-5 eighth, with water coming in to play on every shot, there is little room for error. Even if y ou manage to avoid the w et stuff, there is sand guarding the green and outof-bounds just over the green. My favorite hole on the course is number 10. After stopping to refuel with a cold drink and a snack, you climb atop an elevated tee and smoke your drive down the fairway. The approach shot must clear the water, avoid the bunkers and settle nicely on a very tricky green. The back nine plays to a par of 34 with only one par 5, the 13th. It's a reachable par 5 playing to a length of only 510yards from the tips. But dont let the length fool you, no one plunders birdies here without risk. What you lose in length on the par-4s, you make up for on the par-3s. Four of the par-3 on the course are ov er 200yards long from the back tee. I found myself hitting nearly every club in the bag, the mark of a truly good golf course. When you play Heritage Ridge, make a point of bringing your best putting game along for the round. Y ou will need it. The greens are quick and roll ever-sosmoothly. In addition to being fast, the greens are quite undulating. If you leave yourself a downhill or sidehill putt, you had best r ead it well and put a good stroke on the ball or you may find yourself threeputting as I did on a couple occasions. A feature that one usually only finds at expensive, exclusive resorts and fancy country clubs is beautiful landscaping. Here it can be found in abundance. The club prides itself on keeping everything pleasing to the eye. With palm trees swaying in the breeze and flowering foliage its easy to get distracted from your game and actually relax on the course. You just cant bring your lawn chair or sand shovel to look for more treasure. F or more information or to schedule a tee time,call the pro shop at (772) 5462800 or visit www.heritageridgegolf.com.

076735 Boost small businesses on Nov. 30 ST. LUCIE COUNTY Most shoppers are scouring sales papers searching for the best deals taking place on Black Friday and Cyber M onday. However, to keep money in the local economy and to help locally owned shops boost holiday sales, on Nov. 30, residents are invited to Small Business Saturday, a day to support businesses that create jobs and boost economies in our own backyard. The Small Business Saturday movement encourages the community to "shop small" the day after most shoppers spend hours fighting crowds in larger department stores. No w in its fourth year, millions of consumers around the country are expected to shop on Small Business S aturday this year. The idea behind this national movement is to teach how smart it is to shop local," said Doris TIlman, M ain Street Fort Pierce manager. When a consumer buys from a locally owned business, 52 percent of what is spent remains in the local economy." S hoppers searching for the perfect gift can find anything they desire at many of the small businesses located throughout the area. There is a high concentration of small businesses in downtown Fort Pierce; however, Port St. Lucie also has many Mom and Pop shops that offer most things on those lengthy Christmas lists. S pas, hair and nail salons, tattoo shops and restaurants are just a few of the locally-owned shops that offer gift certificates. The convenience of gift certificates takes some of the painstaking "what if" questions out of buying. M any of the little quaint stores offer things that aren't found in larger department stores. Unique gift ideas are abound in many of the little shops that sometimes get looked over during the hustle and bustle of the holidays. "B eing aware of small businesses all through the year is very important," said Ms. Tilman. "But now, during the holidays, making sure that the money being spent on lavish gifts is kept in the community is very important. It makes sure that everyone not only has a happy holiday, but it sustains the local economy year-round. F or a list of locally owned businesses, visit your local Chamber of C ommerce website.

The Tree of Life is a memorial to organ donors.V eteran receives new homeST. LUCIE COUNTY Just in time for Thanksgiving, a wounded U.S. Army veteran has been given a mortgage-free home in Port St. Lucie. Sgt. Noe Santos Dilone received the keys to his new home in Port St. L ucie in a ceremony at the house earlier in November. The donation was made possible through a partnership between Bank of America and the Military Warriors Support F oundation. Sgt. Dilone was in the Army from 2003 to 2008 and served a tour in Ir aq. He suffered combat related injuries and earned a Purple Heart. Du r ing his career in the Army, Sgt. D ilone received numerous other awards, including the Bronze Star M edal, Army Good Conduct Medal, N ational Defense Service Medal, G lobal War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Iraq Campaign M edal, Army Service Ribbon and C ombat Action Badge. The home, located in Port St. L ucie, was built in 2005. It is about 2,000 square feet with four bedrooms and 2.5 baths. Repairs and upgrades included new appliances, carpet, and paint and window treatments. B ank of America announced in 2012 a three-year commitment to make available up to 1,000 properties to nonprofit organizations and local government programs that provide homes for military veterans and first responders. Since that announcement, the bank has donated more than 800 homes to nonprofits that support military service members seeking housing. A hundred of those homes are in Florida. ST. LUCIE COUNTY In an effort to empower victims against sexual violence, Mindi Fetterman is hosting the third annual "Take Back The Night," on Dec. 6. The event, which will be held at River Walk Center in Fo rt Pierce from 6-10 p.m., will help raise awareness and shatter the silence for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence. "Thi s is a way for the victims of sexual assault to speak out and to help them r elieve some of the demons they live with," said Ms. Fetterman, a survivor and advocate for victims. "We hope to raise our voices so the community is aware of the dangers of sexual assault." The community is invited to participate in the third annual event to help raise awareness and shatter the silence for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence. There will be many community resources which will be on hand to answer questions and distribute literature and information on services and resources," Ms. Fetterman said. Local teenage girls who have been affected by sexual violence have hand-decorated T-shirts with personal expressions and artwork. The T-shirts will be strung on a clothesline suspended in the space as part of the Clothesline Project. The Clothesline Project is a program started in 1990 to address the issue of violence against women by offering a vehicle for women and girls affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. They then hang the shirt on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women.

what could you have done differently to prevent what happened," Ms. Fetterman said. "That doesn't prevent the crimes. It lays a sense of blame on the victim. We shouldn't be afraid to be outside at night. We have to look at the perpetrators, not the victims. We are giving a voice to the victims and trying to take away the voice of the perpetrator." A march through downtown Fort Pierce will be followed by a candlelight vigil and speak-out of victims of sexual violence sharing their stories. "M any times, during the speak-out part of the event, someone comes forward for the first time to speak about how they were a victim of abuse,"Ms. Fetterman said. "One in every three women is the victim of a sexual assault, often at the hands of someone she knows and loves. Whether it is in the form of incest, date-rape, intimate partner violence, or sexual assault by a stranger, without the community's awareness, it will continue to happen," Ms. Fetterman said. "She might be your sister, your daughter, your niece, or even you. She's a victim of a crime we don't speak about comfortably and she's probably suffering in a silence that could ruin her life. It's important that victims break the silence and know that there are local r esources that she, or he, can turn to." Y ou don't have to be victim of sexual violence or even know someone who has been, though chances are you do know someone who hasn't shared it yet. The event is sponsored by The Inner Truth Project.

TREASURE COAST The YMCA of the Treasure C oast is growing, which means the organization's programs and community outreach will be expanding, too. The nonprofit that aims to strengthen the community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility recently promoted three current employees, filling one position that had been empty for several years. "I think a lot is going to change," said Christine C oller, COO for the YMCA of the Treasure Coast. She has heard about the newly promoted employees' goals for the area and she can't wait to see what comes of them. It was all part of the YMCA's strategic plan to grow and expand their services which required a bit of internal restructuring. It just so happened that the company already employed skilled staff members who we re looking for more opportunity and responsibility. Elisha Stoecklin, who started at the YMCA 13 years ago as a lifeguard climbed the ranks and is now branch executive director of the S tuart location. She was senior program director previously and is looking forward to advancing the YMCA's mission in her new position. "M y goal is two-fold: I want to continue to improve the programs and services that we offer and educate the community about what the Y does," Ms. Stoecklin said. S hawn Keil has been a YMCA employee for 19 years and as district executive director will oversee programming, volunteers, staff and fundraising for the YMCA's in Indiantown, Indian River, Okeechobee and S t. Lucie counties. It's in St. L ucie County that Mr. Keil plans to do the most work, expanding programs and building awareness. "I t' s a very rewarding, challenging job," Mr. Keil said. J ami Melnick is the new Association Childcare Director, a promotion from Childcare Services Director at the S tuart Branch. She will now be overseeing the preschools in Stuart and I ndiantown. "I 'v e worked very closely with all three of them and they all have a passion for the Y," Ms. Coller said. "I hope they achieve things for the Y that we weren't able to before." Ms. Coller believes the possibilities of what the YMCA can achieve with a staff like this are endless and was glad to provide the opportunities to individuals who are passionate about the YMCA and their mission of building strong families and communities.

Thank you for remembering the Veterans of all wars and all of our Fallen Heroes.F rom the perspective of a snowbirdI am writing this in response to a letter I read from someone complaining about us snowbirds. It struck a nerve with me because I recently had a run in at the grocery store checkout line with someone who had similar feelings. I said some things out of frustration that I was not very proud of, however, I am tired of having to defend being a snowbird. Over the past 15 years I have been lucky enough to winter in Florida. I consider Florida to be home to me, as well as my home up north. I realize it is a blessing to have two homes, and I am grateful, but I don't understand why I need to apologize for it. I can't speak for all people, but this idea that snowbirds think they are better is just not true. There are arrogant people everywhere, whether they are snowbirds, full-time residents, on vacation, or just passing through. A rude person will be a rude person no matter where they are from, where they live or how long they stay in one particular place. Fu r thermore, whether people like to admit it or not, snowbirds and tourists bring revenue to Florida. I don't come here for free. I pay my property taxes, shop at local businesses, bought my car here, and I am not the only one. I come from a tourist town up north and understand what it feels like to have to deal with heavy traffic during certain seasons and events. Yes, it can be frustrating, but many of our local businesses rely on these people to get them through their slow season as well. Do I get angry when I am driving behind someone who doesn't know the area and may find themselves in the wrong lane? Yes. But there are some horrible drivers who live there all year long as w ell. There was a gentleman who recently told me to let him know when I was going back to Massachusetts so that I could take some people with me. Maybe he was just having a bad day, I know his comment made me speak out of frustration, but no one deserves to be made to feel that they are not welcome. I am such a horrible person because I only live here 7 months out of the year? Do snowbirds cause you so many problems that you have to make a rude comment to an 80 year old widow at the grocery store? Should people in Massachusetts be equally as r ude to me when I am there because I don't live there all y ear? One thing I love about coming to my Florida home is how kind and accommodating most of the stores and r estaurants are to people my age. I am grateful for these people. It takes so little to be friendly and kind to people and it goes a long way. Truthfully, there are so many more nice people than there are mean, but the mean ones, unfortunately, are so hurtful. M aybe traffic is a little heavier when I am here, or you may have to wait a little longer at your favorite restaurant, but this is my home, too, and I shouldn't have to feel bad about that. It is hurtful to hear, "I hate when the snowbirds are here," or "go home snowbirds." Sorry to disappoint y ou, I am home. -Clara the SnowbirdW ebsite messThe health care website mess and the confusing health plan offerings are perfect reasons for less government. U ntil we begin to elect proven business professionals who can effectively operate an organization and make prudent decisions, and dismiss lawyers and life-long politicians, we are doomed. Plenty of candy for teensIn r esponse to the rant about not wanting the older children to Trick-or Treat at his/her house: Seriously, these children could be out doing drugs, getting drunk, having premarital sex, instead, they are asking for a lousy piece of candy. I say if you are old, young or just young at heart, come to my house there is candy for everyone!Snowbird loveGranted, the "Snowbirds" make us year round residents crazy. Granted the traffic gets unbearable when they arrive and it is almost impossible to get into a restaurant or find a decent parking space. However, please consider that they do support our economy and without them our state would suffer. We do not pay city or state income taxes, our sales tax is much lower than in other states and they pay property taxes for year round use and are only here for part of the year. I have been a full time resident of Florida for more than 20 years. Let's face it, the summers are brutal and the winters are fabulous. I say, even the birds know enough to get out when it's hot and come back when it's cold up north. Are we all jealous that they can afford the luxury we would love to have? Or are they and the birds smarter than we are?F ood stamp costThe cost of food stamps has grown 258 percent since 2000, largely because of relaxed eligibility rules issued by Obama administration. This is fiscally untenable. More importantly, our dependence on government to give money to the poor reduces our responsibility to giving. We are allowing bureaucrats to take our tax money to let us off the hook morally. Not a positive trend.Whose laws do we obey?We are told Obamacare is the law of the land and, therefore, must be implemented, funded and enforced. On the other hand, the president has done everything he can to dismantle and discourage enforcement of our immigration laws. Are his laws the only ones we must obey?Do they really care?Government agencies do not care about the children. We call them about abuse in the home and they go in and question the child in front of the child that is being abused. Don't they know better? Once the agency leaves, the child is then subjected to abuse again. Why would you question a child in front of their abusers? It's no wonder people don't trust them. If a child is stabbing themselves with a pencil or cutting themselves and hurting animals, there is something going on in the home. The workers need to listen to the child, not the parent. That's why there is so much violence in the world. There is raping and killing, and we wonder why this kind of thing goes on. And all the agency does is give the parent an anger management course. That's not going to help these poor children.We need helpI'm trying to raise my grandchildren on disability. The r unaround that people get when they apply for government assistance is horrible. The economy is poor and so are the people who are trying to survive. The government makes trying to get by nearly impossible.Clean up after your dogI quote from a page of a page-a-day calendar if only to show that I'm not the only one who feels this way: "Dog Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail newsfp@hometownnewsol.com. C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. One of the pitfalls Web surfers are bound to encounter are the hideous advertisements that are created to look like official W indows messages. If y ou've surfed the Web at all, then you've seen them; they look like regular Windows dialogue boxes complete with the red, round X that denotes a Windows error and an ominous message like "Your system is dangerously low on resources" or "Your system is unprotected and is open to hackers." Us ually, these messages (after alarming you that something is wrong) will invite you to click what looks like a normal Windows button to resolve the problem. What happens when you click it? Nine out of 10 times, y ou are brought to a Web site selling some type of optimization or security software. To make this tactic even more insidious, the messages usually will have the three standard buttons on the top, r ight-hand corner you know, the Minimize, Restore and Close buttons. The deceptive part of including those three buttons within the ad is that they do NOT minimize, restore or close the ad! Usually, those buttons are a part of the advertisement and clicking "Close" (or any of the other buttons) will give y ou the same result as if you had clicked the fake "OK" button. Arghh! It's infuriating. I once encountered a Web ad that was promoting some type of security software. The text of the ad said something like this: "Internet hackers are a menace that can infiltrate y our computer and YOU ARE NOT PROTECTED; click here to see just what kind of information hackers can see about your computer." Then there was a link, and when I clicked it, up popped a window displaying the contents of my hard drive. Wo w, I thought to myself. I wonder how many people are falling for this one? And then I proceeded to look at the source code (the underlying code that makes up a Web page) to see how they performed that trick. What I found was that they had crafted a simple link that just calls up the user's hard drive. N othing really wrong with that; you'd get the same r esults typing c:\ into the address bar of your browser and clicked "Go," but to craft it into an alarming message just to sell software? That's low. I t's amazing these companies don't get sued out of existence for deceptive advertising. What's even worse is most of the software advertised in those fake "Windows" ads is garbage anyways that is more apt to slow your machine down than to help it. OK, enough of my rant this w eek on unscrupulous advertisers. Now let's go over a few things to look for so you won't get suckered into clicking on an ad thinking it's a Windows message. F irst thing to understand is if you are on the Web with I nternet Explorer, Firefox, A OL's Browser, Google Chrome, Opera or any of the other Web browsers out there and you come across a message that looks like a W indows message (has the same title bar, minimize r estore and close button and generally looks like a message that Windows occasionally spits out) there is a strong chance that it's an ad, and if y ou click it you will be, in effect, answering that ad and be whisked away from what y ou were doing to look at a sales pitch. The second thing to r emember is you can always see where you are going when y ou are about to click something online by looking at the status bar at the bottom of your browser window. When you hold your mouse ov er a link in your Web browser, the URL or address where that link will take you is shown in the status bar before you click. If it is a genuine windows message, no address will appear in the status bar! So the next time you're online and you run across a "Windows message" telling y ou that you have a message waiting, or your system is notDon't fall for fake messages COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Phone (772) 465-5656 Fax (772) 465-5301Classified (772) 465-5551 Rants & Raves (772) 465-5504Circulation Inquiries 1 -866-913-6397 circulation@hometownnewsol.comPORTST.LUCIEV oted # 1 Community Newspaper in America in 2005, 2006, 2007.

Sgt. Feola and Trooper Ivey were selected from more than 100 deserving nominees for their heroic efforts in saving the life of a motorist who was trapped in a burning vehicle last year. The 2013 r ecognition was presented by Commissioner Putnam. "I 'm proud to recognize Sergeant Alvaro Feola and Trooper Robert Iv ey with the Florida Highway P atrol Trooper of the Year award," said Commissioner Putnam. "S ergeant Feola and Trooper Ivey demonstrated true heroism by risking their own lives to save the life of a fellow Floridian in need. I want to thank Sergeant Feola and Trooper Iv ey, and all Florida Highway Patrol troopers, for their commitment and service to the state of Florida." This year's Trooper of the Year award goes to two deserving members of the FHP who displayed their courage and commitment to protecting Floridians," said Col. David Br ierton, director of the Florida H ighway Patrol. "Both men risked their lives to save a life, which exemplifies the commitment that a Tr ooper makes every day he or she puts on their uniform." On Jan. 14, 2012, Sergeant Feola and Trooper Ivey responded to a traffic crash that occurred on the F lorida Turnpike in St. Lucie County. When they arrived at the scene, they found a driver trapped inside a vehicle that was on fire. As the vehicle filling up with smoke, Se r geant Feola was able to break out out a window of the vehicle and Tr ooper Ivey proceeded to enter the smoke-filled car and cut the seat belt, freeing the driver. Both Troopers then pulled the driver from the burning vehicle and to a safe location. Se r geant Feola, who was a corpor al at the time of the incident, has been with the Florida Highway P atrol for 11 years. He was promoted to Sergeant in September, 2012 and is currently stationed in M iami-Dade County. Trooper Ivey has six years of service with the P atrol. For the past three and a half y ears he has worked as a K-9 handler with in Fort Pierce. The Trooper of the Year award was created more than 40 years ago by the Florida Petroleum Council to r ecognize Florida Highway Patrol Tr oopers for the work they do each day keeping Floridians and visitors safe on our roads. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement.

TREASURE COAST Wo r kforce Solutions r eceived a $7,000 community development grant through Wells Fargo to provide Work Certified training to individuals in I ndian River, Martin and S t. Lucie counties to assist them in developing work r eadiness skills that will help them advance in today's job market. Wo rk Ce r tified, a national career readiness certification program, was developed right here on the Research Coast by workforce development staff, area employers and community partners. "Work Certified is a dynamic program designed by employers to ensure that today's job seeker is ready to work," said Susan Waller, work certified manager/regional workshop coordinator for Workforce Solutions. "Wells Fargo has provided us with resources to not only offer this program to develop incumbent employees into viable candidates for promotions, but also to develop even more job seekers into strong, competitive candidates that are ready to work." "Employers not only want specific skills for the job they are seeking to fill, but the right attitude, confidence, and work ethic that will enhance their organization," Ms. Waller said. "The grant will allow us to provide this training to more individuals and for the first time, provide this training to employed individuals interested in pursuing promotions at their current employer." W ells Fargo makes contributions in areas they believe are important to the future of the nation's vitality and success. They prioritize support programs and organizations whose chief purpose is to benefit lowto moderateincome individuals and families. They provide grants in two primary areas: Community Development and Education. They also consider grants in Human Services, Arts and Culture, Civic Engagement, and Environment. In 2012, Wells Fargo granted more than $16 million to communities across F lorida including more than $160,000 on the Treasure Coast.

TREASURE COAST The F lorida Forest Service wants to remind everyone to enjoy the winter holidays with safety in mind. Holiday wildfire safety begins the first day as your family searches for the perfect Christmas tree and Holiday wildfire safety ends with the carefully planned disposal of the tree at the end of the holiday season. Christmas tree fires are more likely to cause a house fire; a wildfire can result from the flames. C alin Ionita, Senior Fo r ester with the Florida Forest Service wants to provide families with a few tips on protecting yourself, your home and your property. One of the first things you can do to prevent Christmas tree fires is to pick the right tree. When choosing a Christmas tree, it is important to buy a fresh tree. Cut an inch off the bottom or ask the vendor to do it for you. This new cut will allow water to be taken up. Put your tree in water as soon as you get home and be sure to top-up daily. A fresh tree will drink about a pint a day for the first couple of days. How ever, do not think the danger ends just because the holidays are over and the tree is down. "G et to know the burn laws in your area before your strike that match. It is unsafe and illegal to burn wrapping paper and gift boxes. Consider recycling instead of burning your Christmas trees in order to reduce the chances of sparking a wildfire," said M elissa Yunas, Wildfire Mitigation Specialist Florida Forest Service. Christmas trees may be ground up for mulch or used to help stabilize sand dunes, build structure for fish in a lake or pond or provide shelter for birds and other wildlife. Contact your local S olid Waste Authority for r ecycling information. If y ou decide to burn your Christmas tree, here are a few outdoor burning tips: -Never leave a fire unattended, and make sure it is out before you leave -Keep a shovel and water hose handy -Don't burn on windy days or when the humidity is below 35 percent -Your fire must be contained to an 8foot diameter pile or non-combustible barr el and must be at least 25feet from forests, 25feet from your house, 50feet from a paved public road and 150feet from other occupied buildings -If your fire escapes, you may be held liable for suppression costs and damage to the property of others. -Burning yard waste does not require an authorization from the Florida Forest Service, but you should check with your local city, county or Florida Forest Service officials to see if there are any r estrictions in your area F or more information about picking out the perfect tree, call (863) 655-6409 C alin.Ionita@FreshFromF lorida.com.

Pa r ades are practically a S tuart staple and the holiday season is no exception. This year marks the 53rd annual Stuart Christmas parade and the city's 100th anniversary and Stuart M ain Street, the parade organizer, is celebrating in a big way. The city will commemor ate its centennial in March, so the parade theme is Christmas past, present and future: Celebrating 100 Y ears on the St. Lucie." It 's that milestone that has more than the usual number of businesses and groups interested in participating in the parade this y ear, according to Thondra Lanese, Stuart Main Street M anager. B ut the line-up for the hour-long parade is set and ov er 50 participants will be walking, driving or towing massive floats for spectators' viewing pleasure. The nighttime parade will have East Ocean aglow with twinkling lights and holiday tunes and the floats will be judged on the best parade theme, illumination and musical presentation, the best representation of Stuart's 100 years, and the judges' overall favorite. S anta will be there, too, but Stuart Main Street is r emaining hush-hush as to how he'll arrive. "I t' s a tradition for the whole community," Ms. Lanese said. "It will be the best parade in 100 years." The parade will run from Georgia Avenue to Monterey Road on East Ocean B oulevard on Friday, Dec. 6 starting at 7 p.m. Bu t that's not the only parade scheduled to thrill r esidents this season. The day after floats take to the street, boats will take to the water for a display the community can enjoy riverside. The 30th annual Martin C ounty boat parade, organized by Marine Industries Association of the Treasure C oast, is scheduled for Dec. 7 at 6:30 p.m. In the past, big boats, little boats and everything in between have impressed onlookers with bright lights and creative displays including swashbuckling pirates and dolphin-led Sa nta sleighs. Ev ery boat is judged on creativity, technical application of lights and effects, and enthusiasm and the best display will be awarded a trophy. "I t' s pretty spectacular," said Michele Miller from MIATC. "Some of these guys get pretty crazy but in a good way." It 's always a good time for the boaters, but spectators can make a night of it, too. Ms. Miller said it is a great opportunity to get the family together, lay out a blanket, fire up a charcoal grill, and show some enthusiasm shore side with glow sticks and air horns. F or a more refined experience, make reservations early for any of the restaura nts in Manatee Pocket where the parade ends. Holiday dinners with family and friends will only be enhanced by the parade that will continue all the way into the Pocket. The parade begins near Loggerhead Marina, cruises past the hospital and Sandsprit Park around 7:15 p.m., to Manatee Pocket where there will also be an after party at a local restaurant. The best viewing locations will be from Sandsprit Pa rk and Manatee Pocket, but parade-goers will want to arrive early for the best view. The Riverwalk stage in Downtown Stuart is a good place to see the kick off, but details will be lost in the distance between the boats and the shore. B oaters can still register to participate until Dec. 6. Br eak out the holiday sweaters, tune the radio to a favorite Christmas station, and celebrate the joy of the season with two of Stuart's most popular annual traditions.

W ith the holidays r apidly approaching, soon one of the most popular plants on earth will be available for sale. The plant I am referring to is the colorful Poinsettia plant. These beautiful plants are most commonly known for their red color but they also can come in many other colors such as white, pink and some can even be multi-colored. S ince most retailers offer mass displays of these gems, you will have an almost unlimited choice of which plants you will want to bring home. As beautiful as these plants are, they are also very fragile and you must handle them gently or the delicate branches will break and fall off. During my lifetime, I have unpacked and displayed no less than 100,000 of these beauties and I still do not tire of their delicate appearance. P oinsettias have an interesting history that dates back to the 14th century. In fact, during the period from the 14th to the 16th century, the Aztec I ndians called Poinsettias "C uetlaxochitle" and they used the sap to control fevers and the leaves, or bracts, were used to produce a red dye. The actual botanical name for the Poinsettia was named by the German botanist W ilenow and he called it E uphorbia Pulcherria. He first discovered the plant growing through a crack in his greenhouse and he was so amazed at the color of the plant that he gave it that name which means "v ery beautiful." F or many years and in fact still today, many people believe that poinsettias are poisonous. The truth is that they are not. It is true, however, that some people are allergic to the white sap of the plant and skin irritation can develop. If you are one of those people with sensitive skin, you should handle the plants with care. F or a retailer during the holiday season, having a fresh batch of Poinsettias is like a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. These wonderful plants create an eye-catching display that will certainly draw a crowd. So, with all these choices, how do I pick that perfect plant? The first thing you want to look for are plants that have been r emoved from their sleeves. Many retailers will display the plant with the sleeve intact and if the plant sits on the shelf too long, this can cause the leaves to yellow and drop and eventually, the plant may die. It is much better to choose plants that have been removed from their sleeves. If you do choose a plant that is sleeved, r emove the plastic as soon as you get the plant home. The next thing you want to look for are plants that have little or no pollen showing on the flower clusters. This is a good indicator of the maturity of the flower bracts. You should always choose plants that have a lush, green color to their foliage and have a good healthy appearance. Avoid plants that look droopy or have y ellowing leaves. While choosing your plants, handle the plants carefully so as not to break the adjoining plants so everybody can have a chance at getting a prime looking plant. Once you have chosen y our gem and you have y our plant in its new home, some standard TLC will ensure that you get a long lifespan from your new houseguest. If you are keeping your plant indoors and it is not near a good light source, occasionally put it in a sunny location so it can get the light it needs to maintain a healthy look. If the plant starts to drop leaves excessively, it is probably not getting enough bright light and you will need to move it. Always keep your plant away from cold drafts and low temperatures. Poinsettias will not do well if the temperatures drop below 45. You should also check your plants for soil moisture daily and be sure your plant has good drainage and does not sit in standing water. Keep the plant evenly moist but not soaking wet. If y ou follow these simple tips, you should be able to enjoy your plants through the entire holiday season. After the holidays are over, you can plant them outdoors in a protected location, such as under a tree, and you can enjoy them year after y ear! That's all for this week's column and I hope you enjoyed it. I will see you next week with more great garden tips and solutions. S ee you then!

I think I may have just found one. He r itage Ridge Golf Club in Hobe Sound recently invited me out to spend a morning chasing a little white golf ball across splendid green fairways and green. I love playing golf in new places, and since it had been several years since I last traveled these links, I thought it a good idea to accept. To my surprise I found out that Heritage Ridge had r ecently undergone renovations to its greens. The club's owners and management tweaked the course a bit, adding some length and getting the greens up to today's standards. At one time, the club was an equity-owned facility. W ith over 700 members, it was difficult at best for outsiders to find a tee time. As a result this sweet golf course went relatively unnoticed for many years. A bout a decade ago, the club was purchased from the original owner, who had bought it back from the membership. It was decided that the club needed more outside play to afford r enovations and upgrades. The idea worked at what y ou have now at Heritage Ridge is a course that has been polished with beautiful foliage, plush fairways and perhaps the best greens in the area. Now, he wants to share his gem with everyone. When you look at the scorecard you may ruffle y our nose and think that a par-70 layout with five sets of tees, measuring 6,014 yards from the tips could never test your game. You had better think again. The course is no easy walk-inthe-park round of golf. The course starts you off gently with a straightforward up-hill par 4. The second hole grabs your attention quite quickly. The 180-yard tee shot is downhill to a narrow, yet wide green tucked behind water and a timber wall. You do not want to be short, but long isn't a picnic either as there are numerous mounds to give you a scary pitch back toward the water. The front nine features a drivable, for some big hitters, par-4 and a trio of tricky par-5s. Heritage Ridge requires you to use y our brain, not just your muscles. The signature hole here is the 535-yard par-5 eighth, with water coming in to play on every shot, there is little room for error. Even if y ou manage to avoid the w et stuff, there is sand guarding the green and outof-bounds just over the green. My favorite hole on the course is number 10. After stopping to refuel with a cold drink and a snack, you climb atop an elevated tee and smoke your drive down the fairway. The approach shot must clear the water, avoid the bunkers and settle nicely on a very tricky green. The back nine plays to a par of 34 with only one par 5, the 13th. It's a reachable par 5 playing to a length of only 510yards from the tips. But don't let the length fool you, no one plunders birdies here without risk. What you lose in length on the par-4s, you make up for on the par-3s. Four of the par-3 on the course are ov er 200yards long from the back tee. I found myself hitting nearly every club in the bag, the mark of a truly good golf course. When you play Heritage Ridge, make a point of bringing your best putting game along for the round. Y ou will need it. The greens are quick and roll ever-sosmoothly. In addition to being fast, the greens are quite undulating. If you leave yourself a downhill or sidehill putt, you had best r ead it well and put a good stroke on the ball or you may find yourself threeputting as I did on a couple occasions. A feature that one usually only finds at expensive, exclusive resorts and fancy country clubs is beautiful landscaping. Here it can be found in abundance. The club prides itself on keeping everything pleasing to the eye. With palm trees swaying in the breeze and flowering foliage it's easy to get distracted from your game and actually relax on the course. You just can't bring your lawn chair or sand shovel to look for more treasure. F or more information or to schedule a tee time,call the pro shop at (772) 5462800 or visit www.heritageridgegolf.com.
