PORT ST. LUCIE A Port St. Lucie man is showing his support for a local organization by heading out to the Intracoastal and paddling for a cause. It all started when Russell Hernandez, 51, spent some time at M ollys House in Stuart a few y ears ago during hospital procedures for his broken neck and other related issues. It was their care and kindness that prompted him to grab his paddleboard and get wet in order to raise money for the organization. As soon as Mr. Hernandez started feeling better he threw together plans for a 300-mile paddleboard trek from Jacksonville to Miami to raise awareness for all that Mollys House does offering affordable, tempora ry accommodations for patients and their families r eceiving medical care on the Tr easure Coast. U nfortunately, waters were r ough when he planned to begin his journey at the end of November and he was forced to move his launch site to Cocoa Beach. The first leg of his journey brought him 120 miles to PGA Blvd. and now R ussell is taking a much deserved breather as he r ests, recuperates and rallies for support. I m testing the waters with my o wn health, Mr. Hernandez said. He s still suffering from muscle spasms and memory loss due to his multiple surgeries and health conditions, but he was determined to get out there and do everything he could for Mollys H ouse while he was feeling as good as he has in years. The first 120 miles were rough with cold, windy mornings and r ough water, But I wouldnt take it back, Mr. Hernandez said.Paddle boarder to raise money for Mollys House 084785Earl discusses the true costs of buying a car Jans Steakhouse is one of the areas best kept secrets for seafood, steak ENTERTAINMENTB1 EARL ON CARSA7 GOOD FOOD C AR COSTS PORT ST.

LUCIE COUNTY Local dentist Michael Huber and his daughters, T ess, 20, and Abigail, 17, lost their lives in a plane crash on Dec. 8. A ccording to Melissa B ujeda, public information officer with the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office. the 1978 Cessna model 310R aircraft was headed to the Jacksonville Executive Airport when it missed an approach and crashed at the edge of a large retention pond in a subdivision in Jacksonville. They reported to the tower that they couldnt see the runway, Ms. Bujeda said in a video on the S heriffs Office website. They were told to fly around. At that time the tower got an alert that it was low altitude and then we started getting calls around 6:20 p.m. that a plane had crashed. Mr. Huber, a popular Fo rt Pierce dentist and his two daughters, Tess, a sophomore at University of North Florida, and Abigail, a senior at Lincoln Park Academy, lived in Po rt S t. Lucie. The FAA and National Tr ansportation Safety B oard are investigating the crash.

LUCIE Dogs and cats in Port St. Lucie waiting to be adopted now have a new place to call their temporary home. The culmination of a long-awaited dream of the H umane Society of St. Lucie C ounty has finally come, as the shelter opens its doors to a new, second facility, this one at 8890 N.W. Glades C ut-Off Road in Port St. L ucie. B ecause of the constant ov ercrowding, the Humane S ociety built the new facility, which will allow the staff to save, treat, house and place more animals in forever homes. "Our new facility, which is housed on more than four acres, couldn't come at a better time," said Rita Hart, marketing and outreach coordinator with The H umane Society of St. Lucie C ounty. The new facility will service animals brought in through the City of Port St. L ucie Animal Control, while the facility on Savannah R oad will continue to service County Animal Control and the City of Fort Pierce Animal Control. "The new facility offers things that the older one isn't able to provide, such as an area that can quarantine cats with respiratory illness and a separate area for those who are bringing in their animals for routine physicals and shots," Ms. Hart said. The new facility will also offer a sanctuary for pet o wners who have brought older, sick animals in to be euthanized. "The sanctuary gives grieving pet owners' time to spend with their beloved animals," Ms. Hart said. "It's hard to do that at the other facility because the reception area is quite small.Beautiful girls at the parade Sevin Bullwinkle/staff photographerFive year olds Kayla Ward and Cassidy Obrian, wave to the crowd from the middle of the Girl Scout Daisy Troop Float at the The Festival of Lights Christmas Parade at the Port St. Lucie Civic Center in Port St. Lucie on Saturday, Dec. 7.

Fo rt Pierce Mayor Linda H udson, along with the hard-working Steering C ommittee members, dedicated Captains, volunteers, elected officials, donors, and dignitaries, held an official ribbon cutting ceremony on Nov. 20 to officially re-open the playground. A dditionally, the City of Fo rt Pierce presented a Pr oclamation in honor of the volunteers to Joey Trefelner, the projects general coordinator, at a City Commission meeting on Dec. 2, with fellow Steering Committee members proudly in attendance. They say it takes a community to build a playground such as this, but I say, this playground helped to build our community, said Joey Trefelner, general coordinator. S ince the playground has been officially re-opened, the outpouring of positive feedback has been sensational. The playground, which was designed by local children, has already been enjoyed by hundreds of children, along with their families and friends.

FORT PIERCE It is the goal of a group of concerned citizens that no child spends Christmas without a party. The Community Outr each Youth Program in Fo rt Pierce has leaned on area businesses, volunteers and a youthful insight to bring happiness to those who may not have the means to enjoy the holiday season. When I was younger, there used to be carnivals and things to do for the kids, said Jakeem Jordan, director of the youth program. I started brainstorming and thought that along with the other parades and activities that take place during Christmas, we should have a carnival for the children on Av enue D. One thing led to another and we started the annual Christmas carniv al. The event will include S antas arrival on his sleigh at 4 p.m., pony rides, an obstacle course, bounce houses, carolers, a manger scene, food vendors, face painting, a cake-tasting contest, and animal train r ide and other activities for the children to enjoy. V olunteers and businesses have really stepped up and helped up offset some of the costs, Renee Jo r dan-Wyatt, president of the organization said. The arm bands for the children to ride all day long cost $5 each and businesses have come together to sponsor some of the children. Toys for Tots have donated toys to the children so they are able to have a Christmas present. Its so important that the volunteers and businesses know how thankful we are that they have helped the children in the area have a fun time away from the crime and every day hardships that some encounter. CO YP is in the planning stages of a community forum that will encourage y outh to offer ideas on how to combat the violence that is plaguing the area. I think sometimes the y outh, the ones that are out there on the streets, have better ideas on how to prevent some of the tragedies that are occurr ing, Ms. Jordan-Wyatt said. We focus on youth leadership, how to help deter the spread of gang violence, prevention of teen pregnancy, HIV and AIDS prevention and how to keep young people in schools and off the streets. The organization is expecting at least 300 children at the carnival and would like businesses and volunteers to come together to make this event memorable for those who attend. The event will take place from 48 p.m. on Saturday, De c. 14, on Avenue D, between 18th and 21st streets.

B uilding this community gathering place, which will last fifty years, was no small feat. Steering committee members Bruce Abernethy, Jr., Monique Bruhn, Douglas D avis, Michelle Franklin, M elinda Gonano, Bud H olmes, Joe Lott, Frankie Lott, Erik Melville, Julia M elville, Stephen Neill, Tom Per ona, Sarah Pride, N atasha Santoro, Holly Theuns, and Jennifer M. Trefelner, have been strategically planning this endeavor for more than one year. The monumental task could not have been done without the tireless efforts of the construction Captains. These volunteers worked 14hours per day, for 5 days, and were tasked with coordinating thousands of volunteers on-site. The dedicated captains Bruce Abernathy, Bud Holmes, Tom Per ona, Bob Benton, Clay Schumann, Glen Bounty, Linda Sampson, Derek F ogal, Jack Crumbo, Dan N oelke, Earl Gordon, and Mar cel Bergeron, are to commended for their support to this project. A dditionally, the playground could not have been built without the churches, civic organizations, businesses, youth groups, schools, and local volunteers who helped to coordinate fundraisers and helped to build the playground, which many call a work-ofart. A pproximately $250,000 was raised throughout the past year to build the playground, which will be an asset to several generations. F or more information, visit www.KidsCrossingP layground.com. There are sad, grieving owners, sitting next to excited, new owners, who share a waiting room with distraught people who have had to turn in animals they can no longer provide for along with those who have brought in animals to get spayed or neutered. In the new facility, we are able to give everyone their own space." The new facility can house up to 140 dogs and has a cat condo for cats. The condo gives felines an opportunity to socialize, an important step in the adoption process. There will also be a separ ate post-surgical area for cats and dogs, creating a soothing atmosphere for animals waking up from surgery. "Soon, we will have a fenced in area in the front of the building that will give visitors a chance to see some of the dogs at play," Ms. Hart said. "There is also an area in the lobby that showcases some of the animals that are up for adoption. These might be older dogs and cats that have been at the shelter for a while and really need to find their forever home." A Grand Opening celebration of the Port St. Lucie facility is scheduled for Saturday, Jan.18, 2014, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. F or more information,visit www.hsslc.org. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 13, 2013 Po rt St. Lucie A3 076860901 SEMonterey Commons Blvd., Stuart, Florida 34996772-283-3414Dr. Hal Tobias, Board Certified by American Board of Pain Medicine and Ninety Eighth (98th) in the world to be certified by the American Academy of Neurology in Pain MedicineNeurology Associatesof the Treasure Coast Hal M.Tobias,M.D.CHCQM,FAIHQ,CIME Board Certified in Neurology and Pain MedicineMOST INSURANCE ACCEPTEDMedicare,BC/BS,Aetna,Most commercial carriers, A uto accidents,Workmans compensation cases Now Taking United Health Insurance Including AARP Secure Horizons DONT WAIT!!

TREASURE COAST The Florida Department of Children and Families, Florida Community-Based Care organizations and the Florida State Foster/Adoptive Parent Association have partnered with One Simple Wish to grant wishes for Floridas current and former foster children. O ne Simple Wish is a wonderful program that allows donors to grant small wishes that have a big impact on the lives of our foster children, said Esther Jacobo, DCF Interim Secretary. By having the ability to see who their donation is helping, donors know they are making a tangible difference. One Simple Wish matches individuals who want to give with current and former foster children in need of simple wishes. Wishes start at $10 and have a maximum gift amount of $500. Wishes can be granted all year-round. "One Simple Wish is proud to support Florida's foster children by empowering people all across the country to brighten their lives through our wish granting program. Granting their wishes not only creates positive memories and a sense of normalcy but also proves how much love, support and hope is out there for all children, Danielle Gletow, executive director of One Simple W ish said. F loridas foster children often arrive in the community-based care system with little to nothing and organizations such as One Simple W ish support their hopes and dreams by providing them with a wish granted, said Kurt Kelly, CEO of Florida Coalition for Children. This campaign is a r eminder of the wonderful partnerships we have here in F lorida and how coming together as a community we can better the lives Florida's abused, abandoned and neglected children." S ince the Southwest Florida Foster and Adoptive Parent Association signed up in Ma r ch 2013, more than 150 wishes have been granted for its children.

Politicians avoid that question, but under current law, the unemployed can get up to 99 weeks of benefits capped at $564 per week. This sounds very much like permanent pay from the government. R ecipients do not have to get up every morning to go to work. They do not have to pay for transportation to and from work. They do not have to purchase appropriate work clothing and they do not have to pay for lunch. Do we want to provide permanent compensation? And, if the answer is yes, can this nation afford it?Just not worth itTheres not enough money in the world to make me sit behind a desk and deal with todays youth. They are disrespectful hooligans who do not care about themselves, their peers, parents or the teachers that try to teach them. M aybe the school system should bring back corporal punishment. If teachers could swat these wisecracking kids, then maybe they would be able to gain a little r espect.In the wake of tragedyIt amazes me how the community comes together after a tragedy, but soon thereafter, the police presence rescinds and the thugs find their ways back onto the streets. Dont the police understand that they have to maintain a presence in afflicted areas? Dont parents realize what their children are doing out at night? Par ents turn an ignorant eye to their kids, leaving them to either get killed on the street or spend their lives in prison. These parents know their kids are up to no good, but dont do a thing. However, when the truth comes to light, they want to scream and fuss. The screaming and fussing should have been aimed at those kids years ago. I feel sorry for those who are hurting, but the violence hurts us all. We, as a community, must continue to work together to rid our streets, schools and neighborhoods of these no-good thugs.To all dog ownersI am a dog owner. I like all dogs, well not the ankle biting yippy ones, but I don't like owners who do not clean up after their pets. If the sight or presence of dog feces doesn't bother you, great, keep your dog at home and enjoy it. If y ou choose to venture off your property, clean it up!Unfit mothers should not be drivingS ome people are not made to be mothers. I was driving side-by-side with this woman who had a baby in a car seat, the wrong way in the back of the car. She was on a cell phone, driving with her legs, and drinking a coke. She had no regard for anybody on the road. I could not believe my eyes. Where are the police? This person could get into a car accident. What has happened to parents? Dont they have any brains? I pity that poor child.Medical technicians need more trainingThis is in response to the rant about medical technicians. I wholeheartedly agree with you but you have given them top quality title. M ostly, they are aides who receive a mere 40 hours of training and are allowed to administer medication, take blood pressure, draw blood, and perform all kinds of medical and nursing procedures that only qualified nurses should perform. This can only happen in Florida because they dare not do these things in other states. No wonder there are always outbreaks of infections and other diseases that even the physicians have a hard time diagnosing. Y ou see, these aides and assistants, whichever you want to call them, use stethoscopes around their necks as a status symbol. Im sure they do not even know which end goes on the patients chest. This is what nursing has come to. What a disaster. 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 poop is the curse of our age, the symbol of all that is wrong with our modern society, the carelessness, the selfishness, the lack of individual responsibility." 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?Tired of messy neighborsI have a problem with the outrageous behavior of my neighbor. I went to the county zoning committee. They told me it was illegal to rent a room in the county in a residential neighborhood, yet there were 15 rooms for rent in the paper today. What do I have to do? It is constant party time at my neighbors house and the yard is a mess.On computersIt is my choice not to own a computer. It is also my choice not to be a patron of a business that gives an e-mail address as its only form of contact.T oo many flaws in Medicaid systemThis is regarding Medicaid. My wife and I just got on Me dicaid. 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. I dont know where to turn.What happened to pet registration law?Whatever happened to the county requirement that dogs and cats and breeders must be registered for a fee? There seems to be no verification of registration at all. P uppy mills are flourishing. Dogs and cats are being euthanized. Responsible pet owners have complied and the creeps who breed animals havent. Why wont the county follow up on these regulations?Living next to a dumpI have a neighbor who has four unregistered cars on his property that he fills with junk. For me, its like living next to a dump. Why wont code enforcement do something about it? I have complained, yet nothing has happened. How can the city expect more businesses to come to the area when it looks like a dump?Expectations are downLow expectations by public-school teachers result in poor performance by our students. Compared to other countries, the U.S. ranks 21st out of 30 in science and 25th in mathematics. W orse yet, 1.2 million students each year fail to graduate. We should shake up K-12 education so that every American child is prepared for higher education or a productive career. 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. Many people are surprised (shocked even) when they r eplace their ancient computer with a brand spanking new machine with 10-times the horsepower than their old one, but somehow their new computer still crawls at a snails pace when connected to the internet. I often get calls from frustrated people who tell me stories like I just got a new machine but my home page takes forever to load or every time I try to watch a video online, it freezes, goes for a bit then stops again over and over! I cant stand it! The frustration is usually mixed with confusion because they figure that, since its a new machine with gobs of ram and all sorts of processor power, it should be much faster than their old machine. Now as a rule this is usually true their new machine is actually much faster than their old machine and if you set the two of them up side by side yo u ll see the new one start up much faster, open programs much faster and visibly outperform the old machine with every test you throw at it. That is until you start doing things that depend upon a fast internet connection. If you are trying to do things like watching a Y ouTube video or waiting for a page like the Yahoo portal to load and if the internet connection is not what it should be, things grind to a halt and start working at the same pace as the old machine. When people start off by telling me that watching videos over the internet is frustrating because it pauses and skips, I usually tell them about the old work around of starting the video and then immediately hitting the pause button for a while. (I still use this technique just to make sure, especially if its a long video Ill start the video then pause it and go get a cup of coffee or something. Then when I come back Ill hit play and it usually plays without a hitch). What were doing by starting it and pausing for a while is giving the data stream a good head start before releasing the play head in the hopes that the point of the video that we are watching doesnt catch up with the data stream thats downloading. If the internet connection is slow and we hit play and dont hit the pause button, the video will sometimes play faster than the computer can download the data that makes up the video and the whole thing stops while it downloads a bit more. This process is called buffering and has more to do with the speed of the internet connection than it does with the speed of the computer. Pause the video and give the data stream plenty of time to buffer and when you hit the play button again the play head wont have a chance of catching the data stream and it should play smoothly. Wi th YouTube videos you can even see it in action start a video and hit pause, then watch and youll see a thin red line start to grow from the left to the right even though the video isnt playing. That line is an indication of how much of the data stream is downloaded and the trick is to make sure its far enough ahead. Catch up to the line and the video will pause and try to buffer on its own but usually the automatic buffering doesnt give the data stream enough of a head start and the process r epeats itself over and over. O k, so we know that even a brand new computer will come to a screeching halt if its trying to do something ov er a slow internet connection, but how does one go about testing that? One way to check is to fire up your w eb browser and go to www.speedtest.net and click the begin test button. This will run a series of tests and give you a good idea of just what your download andCheck your internet connection speed 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.

This might sound crazy, but many dealers dont know the true cost of their cars. The manufacturers and distributors invoice their dealers for an amount when they ship them a car that is almost always several hundreds of dollars more than the true cost. Its fair to say that in virtually every case the invoice for a new car is much higher than the true cost. By true cost, I am r eferring to cost as defined by GAAP, generally accepted accounting principles. Y ou probably have heard about holdback. That is an amount of money added into the invoice of a car r anging from 13 percent of the MSRP which is returned to the dealer after he has paid the invoice. Some manufacturers include the cost of regional advertising in the invoice which offsets the dealers advertising costs. Another fairly common charge included in invoices is floor plan assistance. This goes to offset the dealers cost of financing the new cars in his inventory. Another is PDI or predelivery expense which r eimbursed the dealer for preparing the car for delivery to you. I could name several more, depending on the manufacturer or distributor. S ome of these monies that are returned to the dealer are not shown as profit on his financial statement and some are. Technically a dealer could say that the cost he showed you reflected all of the profit (by definition of his financial statement), but the fact would remain thatWhat is the true cost of that new car? ON CARSEARL STEWART Local company makes national listST. LUCIE COUNTY St. Lucie Battery & Tire has made the top 100 list in the category of Largest Independent U.S. Retailers by Tire Business Magazine. The dealership grew to 12 stores with the opening of three new locations in the past year which tied them for a not too shabby 73rd place nationwide. Ser ving the Treasure Coast for more than 40 years the company has gained r egional market share selling over 8,000 tires per month, and performing ov er 2,000 oil changes monthly. The company now operates service centers in St. Lucie, Okeechobee, Martin, Indian River and Palm Beach C ounties. Eleven of their locations provide full service maintenance and r epair of passenger vehicles and light duty trucks by offering everything from tune-ups to oil changes, alignments to a/c service. Additionally, five of their locations provide commercial truck, fleet and RV service, as well as mammoth tractor tires to the agricultural industry. O ur philosophy has remained the same since our humble beginnings in Fo rt Pierce. said founder Joey Miller. W e provide honest and reliable service to everyone who walks through our doors. In early 2013 the company opened new locations in Jensen Beach, St. L ucie West and West Palm Beach providing new job opportunities for skilled technicians and managers. The company now employs over 140 skilled workers, managers and administrative personnel combined. W e always listen to our customers. Pro viding industry leading service continues to be our core growth component. said Doug Miller, company president. As a result, most folks who visit us become long time patrons. We continue to add quality products to our line, and were proud to carry Americas favorites brands like Michelin, Cooper Tires, BFGoodrich, Uniroyal, Toyo and many others. F ocused on continued growth for 2014 forward, the company has hired award winning agency TAS Advertising to lead the charge with new marketing campaigns which will include soon to be released television commercials aimed at expanding awareness for the company and its services. The companys growth indicators remain on track for continued market expansion as they move into 2014. F or Hometown News NewsFP@hometownnewsol.com See S TEWART, A8

more money would come to back to him after he sold y ou the car. To me, thats called profit. B esides holdbacks and r eimbursements for expenses, you must contend with customer and dealer incentives when trying to figure out the cost of that new car. Y ou will probably be aware of the customer incentives, but not the dealer incentives. Most dealers prefer and lobby the manufacturers for dealer rather than customer incentives just for that reason. Also, performance incentives are paid to dealers for selling a certain number of cars during a given time frame. These usually expire at the end of a month and are one reason why it really is smart to buy a new car on the last day of the month. Last but not least, remember the dealer fee, dealer prep fee, doc fee, dealer inspection fee, etc. which is added to the price you were quoted by the salesman. It is printed on the buyers order and is lumped into the real fees such as Florida sales tax and tag and registration fees. Most dealers in Florida (it is illegal in many states) charge this fee which ranges from $500$1,000. If you are making your buying decision on your perceived cost of the car, even if you were r ight, here is up to $1,000 more in profit to the dealer. Ho pefully you can now understand why it is virtually impossible to precisely know the cost of the new car y ou are contemplating buying. Most often the salesman and sales manager is not completely versed on the cost either. Checking the cost on a good internet site like www.kbb.com or www.edmunds.com is about the best you can do. C onsumer Reports is another good source. One reason that Internet sites dont always have the right invoice price is that different distributors for cars invoice their dealers at different prices. Do not make a decision to buy a car because the dealer has agreed to sell it to you for X dollars above his cost/invoice. This statement is virtually meaningless. As I have advised you in an earlier column, you can only be assured of getting the best price by shopping several dealers for the exact same car and getting an out the door price plus tax and tag only.

Look for the boats capacity plate on the transom or by the helm, or look up the passenger capacity in the boats manual. 3. Dont forget your life jacket. Make sure everyone onboard the boat is wearing warm clothes topped by either a traditional or an inflatable life jacket that fits. N avigating at night in a crowd of other vessels can be just as dangerous as boating in stormy weather or in fog. 4.Things look different at night. Remember that at night, visual navigation markers you rely on during the day may be invisible. Chart your route to the onwater parade-viewing zone in advance, and use GPSenabled electronics to help y ou find it, if necessary. 5.Relax and enjoy the show.

FLL introduces students in grades 4-8 to engineering challenges by building and competing with robots constructed from LEGOs and programmed to complete certain tasks. The Jones James and S tacey and their four children A ustin, Hailey, Hannah and N athan will all be involved in one way or another in the tournament hosted by Martin Countys S.P.A.M. Robotics team. Its something theyve just always done. S ome people do sports, we do robots, said Mrs. J ones, who is the tournament director. It s the way its been since before her children were born. Mr. Jones helped start the S.P.A.M. Robotics team 16years ago and both were at Disney World for regionals when Stacey was nine months pregnant with their oldest. Now the whole family is hooked on robotics. Austin, 15, is enjoying his first year with S.P.A.M., Hailey, 13, and H annah, 9, will both be competing with their FLL teams on the 14, and Nathan, 7, is now part of the Jr. FLL. W e enjoy being together as a family, said Mrs. Jones, who also home schools her kids and volunteers with FLL. I t s brought us closer, said A ustin who will be mentoring H annahs team, Mindcrafters, in the upcoming competition. B ut its more than a good opportunity to have a great time together building robots out of LEGOs. FLL teams are learning, too, developing skills that will help them succeed. W e re learning valuable skills, Hailey said. She particularly enjoys the research projects and solutions the teams are required to produce. The free event will begin at 9 a.m. at South Fork High School. By 4 p.m., awards will be distributed and the top four teams will receive their bids to continue on to Orlando for Regionals.

And, if what y ou have a taste for isnt on the menu, Mr. Trudel will do his best to make sure yo u re accommodated. W e have people call all the time and tell us they are coming in and would like to have lobster, for example, so we make sure there is lobster ready for them when they get here, Mr. Trudel said. More often than not, someone at another table notices the lobster and says, wow, I didnt see that on the menu, so the next time they come in, they call ahead, too. The restaurant is famous for its steaks, and when my guest and I sat down in the quaint outside dining area, which was absolutely delightful with its festive lighting and intimate setting, we decided to see what all the fuss was about.

I spent many of my teenage years and then some in Palm Bay. I remember the excitement I felt when a new course would open. My father, a few of his golf buddies, along with my friends would play the municipal courses around the area. My family belonged to Port Malabar Country Club and I spent a lot of time r oaming those fairways. One thing I remember well was the feeling of anticipation as we watched Palm Gar dens Golf Course being built on Minton Road in West M elbourne. We couldn't wait to try a new course. P alm Gardens GC opened in 1979, the same year I started senior high at Palm B ay High School. It was nothing like what we were used to playing. The course took no tee times. It was first come, first served all day, every day. There was no driving range, but there were practice or warm-up nets and a putting green. One thing I remember about the course, that is true to this day, is that it is family o wned and operated. It's easy to feel right at home when you're here. The course, designed by E dward C. Ryder, consists of only nine holes, and plays to a par of 30. There are two sets of tees, one playing to 1,596 yards, the other 1,411. The layout is great for seniors, beginners and juniors, as w ell as better players who wish to work on their accuracy and course management. The many lakes, narrow fairways and pesky bunkers offer plenty of challenge to golfers of every skill. If you're looking for a quick game after work or to start the weekend before the rest of the family gets out of bed, this is your course. You can walk it very easily and without having to carry more than a half-dozen clubs. P alm Gardens starts off with its most intriguing hole. The first is a par-4 that makes A trip down memory lane GOLFJAMES STAM MER See G OLF, B5

freshly cut fruit, warm, crispy baguette slices, and a generous slice of warm, creamy brie. This appetizer would be perfect for lunch or for those who enjoy wine. The appetizer is definitely large enough for a meal. As we were gushing over the incredible brie, we were served steaming cups of New England clam chowder, which is homemade by Mrs. Tr udel. The soup is hearty and full of lumps of clam and potatoes. F or our entre, my guest decided to try the 16-ounce r ib eye, which is served with either house or Caesar salad or a cup of soup, a vegetable and choice of potato. The steak that was brought out was, without a doubt, one of the finest steaks weve had the pleasure of eating. I had to share the steak with my guest and each bite I had melted in my mouth. I decided to try one of the many seafood dishes available. It was a hard choice between the blackened Mahi with mango salsa, almond encrusted tilapia and all of the different combinations of shrimp and scallops, however, I decided to try the almond encrusted grouper with a pineapple sherry sauce. The fish was unbelievably delicious and pared perfectly with the sauce. I chose the twice-baked potato as a side dish, however next time I visit, I will treat myself to the twice baked sweet potato. When my guest and I were finished with our dinner, Mr. and Mrs. Trudel stopped by our table to chat something that they do frequently with guests. I asked them about the atmosphere and why they suggest folks leave their cell phones in the car while they dine. I think its important that families take the time to enjoy a meal together, Mr. Trudel said. Dinner shouldnt be a quick stop when youre in a hurry. We are a destination. F amilies should enjoy conversation, enjoy a break from the hectic lifestyle that we all have and enjoy an hour or so of good food and great company. Mrs. Trudel agreed. This is a great little spot to r eally enjoy a meal, she said. W e live close and when I dont cook at home, we come here for dinner. Not because its our restaurant, but because the food is phenomenal. We have a wonderful chef, Michael DAquila, who is simply incredible. His sauces and seafood are topnotch. The Trudels likened the atmosphere to where Mrs. Tr udel grew up on Marthas V ineyard. O n the island, you find many little restaurants with patios that are nestled between buildings and offer a great dining experience,Mr. Tr udel said. We have tried to r ecreate that experience, and hope our customers sincerely enjoy the space. I nside the restaurant is intimate seating downstairs and an upstairs area that is available for parties. The Trudels also own and operate the ever-so popular Ja n s Place in Jensen Beach which is an area staple for delicious breakfasts and lunches. Ja n s Steakhouse is open for dinner Monday through Saturday and is located at 614 S.W.Bayshore Blvd.,in Port St. L ucie.To make a reservation, special order your favorite lamb,lobster or crab leg dinner or ask a question,call (772) 878-6555.SteakF rom page B1 F riday, December 13, 2013 B4 Port St. LucieHometown News 08527750% Off Any MealPurchase any meal and 2 beverages at full price and get y our 2nd meal at 50% OFF.Coupon valid Mon-Fri only Dine In Only Must present coupon Excludes Side Orders & Daily Specials.2nd Item Must be of Equal or Lesser Value.Expires 12/31/13American CafeServing Breakfast and Lunch 398-231310193 S.Federal Hwy, PSL (Town Centre Shopping Center)Mon thru Sat 7am 2pm Sun 7am 1pm Breakfast OnlyAmerican Cafeof Stuart Serving Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner781-86003286 S.Federal Hwy,Stuart (Wedgewood Commons) Mon thru Sat 7am 2pm Sun 7am 1pm Breakfast Only50% Off Any Meal Soup & 1/2 Sandwich $5.50 AMERI CANCAFE PurchaseTickets Online @www.barn-theatre.com2400 E.

a 90 degree dogleg right that starts about 200yards off the tee. Hit your drive much farther than that and you will find yourself in trees or water. Anything too short and you'll find your short approach blocked by trees. The second hole is a 135yard par-3 with a very narrow, yet deep green. M issing right or left means y ou will likely find sand. The third is a 300-yard par4 that requires a well-placed fairway wood or hybrid off the tee. A large bunker guards the front of the large green. M easuring about 175yards from the back tees, the fourth hole is the second longest par-3 on the course. It is also the only hole without a bunker and boasts the largest green. At the par-3 fifth, you will likely hit another different club from the tee. While Palm Ga r dens GC is short and tight, every hole is a different length and makes you hit different clubs at nearly every tee. It's a great design trait, which often isn't found on much longer, much more expensive tracks. Fr om the back tees, the sixth hole can play as long as 200 yards. Bunkers guard this green on both sides. Between the tee and the green trees pinch in at the sides, making the hole feel narrower than it is The eighth hole has water from the tee all the way to the green and guarding the left side. If you play too safely to the right you bring more sand and trees into play. The ninth is a par-4 that can be played in many ways. Fr om the tee you can thread a wedge or short iron onto the fairway protected by water on both sides. P alm gardens GC is quite fun and a quick stroll if you only have a couple of hours to play.

You should water the plant as usual and use a gentle plant starter fertilizer to help get the first set of leaves to pop out. W ith El Nino in full swing, not only are we in danger of cold snaps but also to heavy r ain. Normally, the winter months harbor plenty of dry w eather but during El Nino y ears, above normal rainfall may be the rule. Certain annuals, such as impatience, can get fungus diseases and die if they are in standing water. The best way to prevent this is to raise your annual flowerbeds above y our normal ground level. This is especially important if y ou are planting in an area that may flood during heavy r ains. Raising the bar will help the plants to drain quicker and not be in pools of standing water for an extended period of time. As you can see, El Nino y ears can bring about some definite gardening challenges but it also is the determining factor that can put the brakes on what would have been an exceptionally busy hurricane season.

PORT ST. LUCIE A Port St. Lucie man is showing his support for a local organization by heading out to the Intracoastal and paddling for a cause. It all started when Russell Hernandez, 51, spent some time at M olly's House in Stuart a few y ears ago during hospital procedures for his broken neck and other related issues. It was their care and kindness that prompted him to grab his paddleboard and get wet in order to raise money for the organization. As soon as Mr. Hernandez started feeling better he threw together plans for a 300-mile paddleboard trek from Jacksonville to Miami to raise awareness for all that Molly's House does offering affordable, tempora ry accommodations for patients and their families r eceiving medical care on the Tr easure Coast. U nfortunately, waters were r ough when he planned to begin his journey at the end of November and he was forced to move his launch site to Cocoa Beach. The first leg of his journey brought him 120 miles to PGA Blvd. and now R ussell is taking a much deserved breather as he r ests, recuperates and rallies for support. "I 'm testing the waters with my o wn health," Mr. Hernandez said. He 's still suffering from muscle spasms and memory loss due to his multiple surgeries and health conditions, but he was determined to get out there and do everything he could for Molly's H ouse while he was feeling as good as he has in years. The first 120 miles were rough with cold, windy mornings and r ough water, "But I wouldn't take it back," Mr. Hernandez said.Paddle boarder to raise money for Molly's House 084785 Earl discusses the true' costs of buying a car Jan's Steakhouse is one of the area's best kept secrets for seafood, steak ENTERTAINMENTB1 EARL ON CARSA7 GOOD FOOD C AR COSTS PORT ST.

LUCIE COUNTY Local dentist Michael H uber and his daughters, T ess, 20, and Abigail, 17, lost their lives in a plane crash on Dec. 8. A ccording to Melissa B ujeda, public information officer with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. the 1978 Cessna model 310R aircraft was headed to the Jacksonville Executive Airport when it missed an approach and crashed at the edge of a large retention pond in a subdivision in Jacksonville. They reported to the tower that they couldn't see the runway, Ms. Bujeda said in a video on the S heriff's Office website. They were told to fly around. At that time the tower got an alert that it was low altitude and then we started getting calls around 6:20 p.m. that a plane had crashed." Mr. Huber, a popular Fo rt Pierce dentist and his two daughters, Tess, a sophomore at University of North Florida, and Abigail, a senior at Lincoln Park A cademy, lived in Po rt S t. Lucie.

LUCIE Dogs and cats in Port St. Lucie waiting to be adopted now have a new place to call their temporary home. The culmination of a long-awaited dream of the H umane Society of St. Lucie C ounty has finally come, as the shelter opens its doors to a new, second facility, this one at 8890 N.W. Glades C ut-Off Road in Port St. L ucie. B ecause of the constant ov ercrowding, the Humane S ociety built the new facility, which will allow the staff to save, treat, house and place more animals in forever homes. "Our new facility, which is housed on more than four acres, couldn't come at a better time," said Rita Hart, marketing and outreach coordinator with The H umane Society of St. Lucie C ounty. The new facility will service animals brought in through the City of Port St. L ucie Animal Control, while the facility on Savannah R oad will continue to service County Animal Control and the City of Fort Pierce Animal Control. "The new facility offers things that the older one isn't able to provide, such as an area that can quarantine cats with respiratory illness and a separate area for those who are bringing in their animals for routine physicals and shots," Ms. Hart said. The new facility will also offer a sanctuary for pet o wners who have brought older, sick animals in to be euthanized. "The sanctuary gives grieving pet owners' time to spend with their beloved animals," Ms. Hart said. "It's hard to do that at the other facility because the reception area is quite small.Beautiful girls at the parade Sevin Bullwinkle/ staff photographerFive year olds Kayla Ward and Cassidy O'brian, wave to the crowd from the middle of the Girl Scout Daisy Troop Float at the The Festival of Lights Christmas Parade at the Port St. Lucie Civic Center in Port St. Lucie on Saturday, Dec. 7.

Thanks to the overwhelming support of volunteers, the 11,000 squarefoot playground was completed in just over five days. Fo rt Pierce Mayor Linda H udson, along with the hard-working Steering C ommittee members, dedicated Captains, volunteers, elected officials, donors, and dignitaries, held an official ribbon cutting ceremony on Nov. 20 to officially re-open the playground. A dditionally, the City of Fo rt Pierce presented a Pr oclamation in honor of the volunteers to Joey Trefelner, the project's general coordinator, at a City Commission meeting on Dec. 2, with fellow Steering Committee members proudly in attendance. They say it takes a community to build a playground such as this, but I say, this playground helped to build our community," said Joey Trefelner, general coordinator. S ince the playground has been officially re-opened, the outpouring of positive feedback has been sensational. The playground, which was designed by local children, has already been enjoyed by hundreds of children, along with their families and friends.

FORT PIERCE It is the goal of a group of concerned citizens that no child spends Christmas without a party. The Community Outr each Youth Program in Fo rt Pierce has leaned on area businesses, volunteers and a youthful insight to bring happiness to those who may not have the means to enjoy the holiday season. When I was younger, there used to be carnivals and things to do for the kids," said Jakeem Jordan, director of the youth program. "I started brainstorming and thought that along with the other parades and activities that take place during Christmas, we should have a carnival for the children on Av enue D. One thing led to another and we started the annual Christmas carniv al." The event will include S anta's arrival on his sleigh at 4 p.m., pony rides, an obstacle course, bounce houses, carolers, a manger scene, food vendors, face painting, a cake-tasting contest, and animal train r ide and other activities for the children to enjoy. "V olunteers and businesses have really stepped up and helped up offset some of the costs," Renee Jo r dan-Wyatt, president of the organization said. "The arm bands for the children to ride all day long cost $5 each and businesses have come together to sponsor some of the children. Toys for Tots have donated toys to the children so they are able to have a Christmas present. It's so important that the volunteers and businesses know how thankful we are that they have helped the children in the area have a fun time away from the crime and every day hardships that some encounter." CO YP is in the planning stages of a community forum that will encourage y outh to offer ideas on how to combat the violence that is plaguing the area. "I think sometimes the y outh, the ones that are out there on the streets, have better ideas on how to prevent some of the tragedies that are occurr ing," Ms. Jordan-Wyatt said. "We focus on youth leadership, how to help deter the spread of gang violence, prevention of teen pregnancy, HIV and AIDS prevention and how to keep young people in schools and off the streets." The organization is expecting at least 300 children at the carnival and would like businesses and volunteers to come together to make this event memorable for those who attend. The event will take place from 48 p.m. on Saturday, De c. 14, on Avenue D, between 18th and 21st streets.

B uilding this community gathering place, which will last fifty years, was no small feat. Steering committee members Bruce Abernethy, Jr., Monique Bruhn, Douglas D avis, Michelle Franklin, M elinda Gonano, Bud H olmes, Joe Lott, Frankie Lott, Erik Melville, Julia M elville, Stephen Neill, Tom Pe r ona, Sarah Pride, N atasha Santoro, Holly Theuns, and Jennifer M. Trefelner, have been strategically planning this endeavor for more than one year. The monumental task could not have been done without the tireless efforts of the construction Captains. These volunteers worked 14hours per day, for 5 days, and were tasked with coordinating thousands of volunteers on-site. The dedicated captains Bruce Abernathy, Bud Holmes, Tom Pe r ona, Bob Benton, Clay Schumann, Glen Bounty, Linda Sampson, Derek F ogal, Jack Crumbo, Dan N oelke, Earl Gordon, and Ma r cel Bergeron, are to commended for their support to this project. A dditionally, the playground could not have been built without the churches, civic organizations, businesses, youth groups, schools, and local volunteers who helped to coordinate fundraisers and helped to build the playground, which many call a work-ofart. A pproximately $250,000 was raised throughout the past year to build the playground, which will be an asset to several generations. F or more information, visit www.KidsCrossingP layground.com. There are sad, grieving owners, sitting next to excited, new owners, who share a waiting room with distraught people who have had to turn in animals they can no longer provide for along with those who have brought in animals to get spayed or neutered. In the new facility, we are able to give everyone their own space." The new facility can house up to 140 dogs and has a cat condo for cats. The condo gives felines an opportunity to socialize, an important step in the adoption process. There will also be a separ ate post-surgical area for cats and dogs, creating a soothing atmosphere for animals waking up from surgery. "Soon, we will have a fenced in area in the front of the building that will give visitors a chance to see some of the dogs at play," Ms. Hart said. "There is also an area in the lobby that showcases some of the animals that are up for adoption. These might be older dogs and cats that have been at the shelter for a while and really need to find their forever home." A Grand Opening celebration of the Port St. Lucie facility is scheduled for Saturday, Jan.18, 2014, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. F or more information,visit www.hsslc.org. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 13, 2013 Po rt St. Lucie A3 076860901 SEMonterey Commons Blvd., Stuart, Florida 34996772-283-3414Dr. Hal Tobias Board Certified by American Board of Pain Medicine and Ninety Eighth (98th) in the world to be certified by the American Academy of Neurology in Pain MedicineNeurology Associatesof the Treasure Coast Hal M.Tobias,M.D.CHCQM,FAIHQ,CIME Board Certified in Neurology and Pain MedicineMOST INSURANCE ACCEPTEDMedicare,BC/BS,Aetna,Most commercial carriers, A uto accidents,Workmans compensation cases Now Taking United Health Insurance Including AARP Secure Horizons DONT WAIT!!

TREASURE COAST The Florida Department of Children and Families, Florida Community-Based Care organizations and the Florida State Foster/Adoptive Parent Association have partnered with One Simple Wish to grant wishes for Florida's current and former foster children. "O ne Simple Wish is a wonderful program that allows donors to grant small wishes that have a big impact on the lives of our foster children," said Esther Jacobo, DCF Interim Secretary. "By having the ability to see who their donation is helping, donors know they are making a tangible difference." One Simple Wish matches individuals who want to give with current and former foster children in need of simple wishes. Wishes start at $10 and have a maximum gift amount of $500. Wishes can be granted all year-round. "One Simple Wish is proud to support Florida's foster children by empowering people all across the country to brighten their lives through our wish granting program. Granting their wishes not only creates positive memories and a sense of normalcy but also proves how much love, support and hope is out there for all children," Danielle Gletow, executive director of One Simple W ish said. "F lorida's foster children often arrive in the community-based care system with little to nothing and organizations such as One Simple W ish support their hopes and dreams by providing them with a wish granted," said Kurt Kelly, CEO of Florida Coalition for Children. This campaign is a r eminder of the wonderful partnerships we have here in F lorida and how coming together as a community we can better the lives Florida's abused, abandoned and neglected children." S ince the Southwest Florida Foster and Adoptive Parent Association signed up in Ma r ch 2013, more than 150 wishes have been granted for its children. The fact that One Simple W ish provides gifts for foster children that are donated by people from around the country shows our children that there is hope and that they are never alone," Trudy P etkovich, president of the F lorida State Foster/Adoptive Parent Association said. To grant a wish,visit www.onesimplewish.org to view current needs.Wishes are searchable by location, organization,child age,price r ange and type of gift.Florida children have already r eceived numerous gifts through One Simple Wish, including more than 20 wishes granted so far this month.

Politicians avoid that question, but under current law, the unemployed can get up to 99 weeks of benefits capped at $564 per week. This sounds very much like permanent pay from the government. R ecipients do not have to get up every morning to go to work. They do not have to pay for transportation to and from work. They do not have to purchase appropriate work clothing and they do not have to pay for lunch. Do we want to provide permanent compensation? And, if the answer is yes, can this nation afford it?Just not worth itThere's not enough money in the world to make me sit behind a desk and deal with today's youth. They are disrespectful hooligans who do not care about themselves, their peers, parents or the teachers that try to teach them. M aybe the school system should bring back corporal punishment. If teachers could swat these wisecracking kids, then maybe they would be able to gain a little r espect.In the wake of tragedyIt amazes me how the community comes together after a tragedy, but soon thereafter, the police presence rescinds and the thugs find their ways back onto the streets. Don't the police understand that they have to maintain a presence in afflicted areas? Don't parents realize what their children are doing out at night? Pa r ents turn an ignorant eye to their kids, leaving them to either get killed on the street or spend their lives in prison. These parents know their kids are up to no good, but don't do a thing. However, when the truth comes to light, they want to scream and fuss. The screaming and fussing should have been aimed at those kids years ago. I feel sorry for those who are hurting, but the violence hurts us all. We, as a community, must continue to work together to rid our streets, schools and neighborhoods of these no-good thugs.To all dog ownersI am a dog owner. I like all dogs, well not the ankle biting yippy ones, but I don't like owners who do not clean up after their pets. If the sight or presence of dog feces doesn't bother you, great, keep your dog at home and enjoy it. If y ou choose to venture off your property, clean it up!Unfit mothers should not be drivingS ome people are not made to be mothers. I was driving side-by-side with this woman who had a baby in a car seat, the wrong way in the back of the car. She was on a cell phone, driving with her legs, and drinking a coke. She had no regard for anybody on the road. I could not believe my eyes. Where are the police? This person could get into a car accident. What has happened to parents? Don't they have any brains? I pity that poor child.Medical technicians need more trainingThis is in response to the rant about medical technicians. I wholeheartedly agree with you but you have given them top quality title. M ostly, they are aides who receive a mere 40 hours of training and are allowed to administer medication, take blood pressure, draw blood, and perform all kinds of medical and nursing procedures that only qualified nurses should perform. This can only happen in Florida because they dare not do these things in other states. No wonder there are always outbreaks of infections and other diseases that even the physicians have a hard time diagnosing. Y ou see, these aides and assistants, whichever you want to call them, use stethoscopes around their necks as a status symbol. I'm sure they do not even know which end goes on the patient's chest. This is what nursing has come to. What a disaster. 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 poop is the curse of our age, the symbol of all that is wrong with our modern society, the carelessness, the selfishness, the lack of individual responsibility." 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?Tired of messy neighborsI have a problem with the outrageous behavior of my neighbor. I went to the county zoning committee. They told me it was illegal to rent a room in the county in a residential neighborhood, yet there were 15 rooms for rent in the paper today. What do I have to do? It is constant party time at my neighbor's house and the yard is a mess.On computersIt is my choice not to own a computer. It is also my choice not to be a patron of a business that gives an e-mail address as its only form of contact.T oo many flaws in Medicaid systemThis is regarding Medicaid. My wife and I just got on Me dicaid. 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 can't be taken care of because they don't meet the criteria. My wife makes $1,400 a month and our expenses are more than $1,600. I don't know where to turn.What happened to pet registration law?Whatever happened to the county requirement that dogs and cats and breeders must be registered for a fee? There seems to be no verification of registration at all. P uppy mills are flourishing. Dogs and cats are being euthanized. Responsible pet owners have complied and the creeps who breed animals haven't. Why won't the county follow up on these regulations?Living next to a dumpI have a neighbor who has four unregistered cars on his property that he fills with junk. For me, it's like living next to a dump. Why won't code enforcement do something about it? I have complained, yet nothing has happened. How can the city expect more businesses to come to the area when it looks like a dump?Expectations are downLow expectations by public-school teachers result in poor performance by our students. Compared to other countries, the U.S. ranks 21st out of 30 in science and 25th in mathematics. W orse yet, 1.2 million students each year fail to graduate. We should shake up K-12 education so that every American child is prepared for higher education or a productive career. Got something to say?

C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Many people are surprised (shocked even) when they r eplace their ancient computer with a brand spanking new machine with 10-times the horsepower than their old one, but somehow their new computer still crawls at a snail's pace when connected to the internet. I often get calls from frustrated people who tell me stories like "I just got a new machine but my home page takes forever to load" or "every time I try to watch a video online, it freezes, goes for a bit then stops again over and over! I can't stand it!" The frustration is usually mixed with confusion because they figure that, since it's a new machine with gobs of ram and all sorts of processor power, it should be much faster than their old machine. No w as a rule this is usually true their new machine is actually much faster than their old machine and if you set the two of them up side by side yo u' ll see the new one start up much faster, open programs much faster and visibly outperform the old machine with every test you throw at it. That is until you start doing things that depend upon a fast internet connection. If y ou are trying to do things like watching a Y ouTube video or waiting for a page like the Yahoo portal to load and if the internet connection is not what it should be, things grind to a halt and start working at the same pace as the old machine. When people start off by telling me that watching videos over the internet is frustrating because it pauses and "skips," I usually tell them about the old work around of starting the video and then immediately hitting the "pause" button for a while. (I still use this technique just to make sure, especially if it's a long video I'll start the video then pause it and go get a cup of coffee or something. Then when I come back I'll hit play and it usually plays without a hitch). What we're doing by starting it and pausing for a while is giving the data stream a good head start before releasing the play head in the hopes that the point of the video that we are watching doesn't catch up with the data stream that's downloading. If the internet connection is slow and we hit play and don't hit the pause button, the video will sometimes play faster than the computer can download the data that makes up the video and the whole thing stops while it downloads a bit more. This process is called "buffering" and has more to do with the speed of the internet connection than it does with the speed of the computer. Pause the video and give the data stream plenty of time to buffer and when you hit the play button again the play head won't have a chance of catching the data stream and it should play smoothly. Wi th YouTube videos you can even see it in action start a video and hit pause, then watch and you'll see a thin red line start to grow from the left to the right even though the video isn't playing. That line is an indication of how much of the data stream is downloaded and the trick is to make sure it's far enough ahead. Catch up to the line and the video will pause and try to buffer on its own but usually the automatic buffering doesn't give the data stream enough of a head start and the process r epeats itself over and over. O k, so we know that even a brand new computer will come to a screeching halt if it's trying to do something ov er a slow internet connection, but how does one go about testing that? One way to check is to fire up your w eb browser and go to www.speedtest.net and click the "begin test" button. This will run a series of tests and give you a good idea of just what your download andCheck your internet connection speed 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.

This might sound crazy, but many dealers don't know the true cost of their cars. The manufacturers and distributors invoice their dealers for an amount when they ship them a car that is almost always several hundreds of dollars more than the true cost. It's fair to say that in virtually every case the "invoice" for a new car is much higher than the true cost. By true cost, I am r eferring to cost as defined by GAAP, generally accepted accounting principles. Y ou probably have heard about "holdback." That is an amount of money added into the invoice of a car r anging from 13 percent of the MSRP which is returned to the dealer after he has paid the invoice. Some manufacturers include the cost of regional advertising in the invoice which offsets the dealer's advertising costs. Another fairly common charge included in invoices is "floor plan assistance." This goes to offset the dealer's cost of financing the new cars in his inventory. Another is "PDI" or predelivery expense which r eimbursed the dealer for preparing the car for delivery to you. I could name several more, depending on the manufacturer or distributor. S ome of these monies that are returned to the dealer are not shown as profit on his financial statement and some are. Technically a dealer could say that the cost he showed you reflected all of the profit (by definition of his financial statement), but the fact would remain thatWhat is the true' cost of that new car? ON CARSEARL STEWART Local company makes national listST. LUCIE COUNTY St. Lucie Battery & Tire has made the top 100 list in the category of "Largest Independent U.S. Retailers" by Tire Business Magazine. The dealership grew to 12 stores with the opening of three new locations in the past year which tied them for a "not too shabby" 73rd place nationwide. Se r ving the Treasure Coast for more than 40 years the company has gained r egional market share selling over 8,000 tires per month, and performing ov er 2,000 oil changes monthly. The company now operates service centers in St. Lucie, Okeechobee, Martin, Indian River and Palm Beach C ounties. Eleven of their locations provide full service maintenance and r epair of passenger vehicles and light duty trucks by offering everything from tune-ups to oil changes, alignments to a/c service. Additionally, five of their locations provide commercial truck, fleet and RV service, as well as mammoth tractor tires to the agricultural industry. "O ur philosophy has remained the same since our humble beginnings in Fo rt Pierce." said founder Joey Miller. "W e provide honest and reliable service to everyone who walks through our doors." In early 2013 the company opened new locations in Jensen Beach, St. L ucie West and West Palm Beach providing new job opportunities for skilled technicians and managers. The company now employs over 140 skilled workers, managers and administrative personnel combined. "W e always listen to our customers. Pr o viding industry leading service continues to be our core growth component." said Doug Miller, company president. "As a result, most folks who visit us become long time patrons. We continue to add quality products to our line, and were' proud to carry America's favorite's brands like Michelin, Cooper Tires, BFGoodrich, Uniroyal, Toyo and many others." F ocused on continued growth for 2014 forward, the company has hired award winning agency TAS Advertising to lead the charge with new marketing campaigns which will include soon to be released television commercials aimed at expanding awareness for the company and its services. The company's growth indicators remain on track for continued market expansion as they move into 2014. F or Hometown News NewsFP@hometownnewsol.com See S TEWART, A8

more money would come to back to him after he sold y ou the car. To me, that's called profit. B esides holdbacks and r eimbursements for expenses, you must contend with customer and dealer incentives when trying to figure out the cost of that new car. Y ou will probably be aware of the customer incentives, but not the dealer incentives. Most dealers prefer and lobby the manufacturers for dealer rather than customer incentives just for that reason. Also, performance incentives are paid to dealers for selling a certain number of cars during a given time frame. These usually expire at the end of a month and are one reason why it really is smart to buy a new car on the last day of the month. Last but not least, remember the "dealer fee," "dealer prep fee," "doc fee," "dealer inspection fee," etc. which is added to the price you were quoted by the salesman. It is printed on the buyer's order and is lumped into the real fees such as Florida sales tax and tag and registration fees. Most dealers in Florida (it is illegal in many states) charge this fee which ranges from $500$1,000. If you are making your buying decision on your perceived cost of the car, even if you were r ight, here is up to $1,000 more in profit to the dealer. Ho pefully you can now understand why it is virtually impossible to precisely know the cost of the new car y ou are contemplating buying. Most often the salesman and sales manager is not completely versed on the cost either. Checking the cost on a good internet site like www.kbb.com or www.edmunds.com is about the best you can do. C onsumer Reports is another good source. One reason that Internet sites don't always have the right invoice price is that different distributors for cars invoice their dealers at different prices. Do not make a decision to buy a car because the dealer has agreed to sell it to you for "X dollars above his cost/invoice." This statement is virtually meaningless. As I have advised you in an earlier column, you can only be assured of getting the best price by shopping several dealers for the exact same car and getting an "out the door" price plus tax and tag only.

Many local boaters participate, festooning their vessels with lights and joining the parade, while others line the route with their boats in order to enjoy the best view of the show. These seasonal events can cause crowded and disorienting conditions on the water, however. The nonprofit Sea Tow Foundation offers the following tips to boaters who are thinking of taking their vessels out to watch a holiday boat parade, in order to ensure they will be safe for everyone. 1. Designate a Sober Skipper to stay at the helm all evening and be responsible for returning the boat and its passengers safely to shore after the parade is over. 2. Watch your weight.

FLL introduces students in grades 4-8 to engineering challenges by building and competing with robots constructed from LEGO's and programmed to complete certain tasks. The Jones' James and S tacey and their four children A ustin, Hailey, Hannah and N athan will all be involved in one way or another in the tournament hosted by Martin County's S.P.A.M. Robotics team. It's something they've just always done. "S ome people do sports, we do robots," said Mrs. J ones, who is the tournament director. It 's the way it's been since before her children were born. Mr. Jones helped start the S.P.A.M. Robotics team 16years ago and both were at Disney World for regionals when Stacey was nine months pregnant with their oldest. No w the whole family is hooked on robotics. Austin, 15, is enjoying his first year with S.P.A.M., Hailey, 13, and H annah, 9, will both be competing with their FLL teams on the 14, and Nathan, 7, is now part of the Jr. FLL. "W e enjoy being together as a family," said Mrs. Jones, who also home schools her kids and volunteers with FLL. "I t' s brought us closer," said A ustin who will be mentoring H annah's team, Mindcrafters, in the upcoming competition. B ut it's more than a good opportunity to have a great time together building robots out of LEGO's. FLL teams are learning, too, developing skills that will help them succeed. "W e' re learning valuable skills," Hailey said. She particularly enjoys the research projects and solutions the teams are required to produce. The free event will begin at 9 a.m. at South Fork High School. By 4 p.m., awards will be distributed and the top four teams will receive their bids to continue on to Orlando for Regionals.

LUCIE COUNTY B egin your day with Captain B arry "Chop" Lege on his pontoon boat, The Gator, all while supporting the Indian River Lagoon. O perating his boat in Fo rt Pierce since 1997, C aptain Chop discovered his passion for the water and wildlife as a young boy growing up in southern Louisiana on the Bayou. As a young man he joined the U. S. Navy where he explored new waters. He later settled in Okeechobee where he was able to live out his childhood dream and continue his passion for a life on the water. While there he o wned and operated Sw ampland Tours and started the nonprofit organization, COKEE. C aptain Chop now resides in Fort Pierce where he serves on various boards and committees in the community. Those who take the cruise on the lagoon will meet at the Fort Pierce Ma r ina at 10 a.m. and kick off the morning with an educational, as well as, entertaining tour with Ca ptain Chop who will update the group on the latest efforts to "Save the Lagoon" while adding some historical highlights about the area. D id you know that Little J im's Marina was around before and during World W ar II and was a stopping point (for a little relaxation) for the Navy Seals? Little Jim's Marina later opened as a bait and tackle shop where it still operates today -extending its service to include meals and entertainment. The Captain will take cruisers to Little Jim's Ma ri na where they will have a choice of a delectable house-favorite sandwich, like their popular Sh r imp Po Boy. Then guests will be able to enjoy the waterside views with a cold beverage while listening to some soft tunes played by a local musician. The event will benefit C OKEE and the Lagoon (Conservation Center for Lake Okeechobee, Kissimmee and Indian River and Ev erglades Education. The cost is $47 per person and includes the unique boat tour, full lunch complete with beverage and side. F or more information or to make a reservation,call (772)569-8372.

I spent many of my teenage years and then some in Palm Bay. I remember the excitement I felt when a new course would open. My father, a few of his golf buddies, along with my friends would play the municipal courses around the area. My family belonged to Port Malabar Country Club and I spent a lot of time r oaming those fairways. One thing I remember well was the feeling of anticipation as we watched Palm Ga r dens Golf Course being built on Minton Road in West M elbourne. We couldn't wait to try a new course. P alm Gardens GC opened in 1979, the same year I started senior high at Palm B ay High School. It was nothing like what we were used to playing. The course took no tee times. It was "first come, first served" all day, every day. There was no driving range, but there were practice or warm-up nets and a putting green. One thing I remember about the course, that is true to this day, is that it is family o wned and operated. It's easy to feel right at home when you're here. The course, designed by E dward C. Ryder, consists of only nine holes, and plays to a par of 30. There are two sets of tees, one playing to 1,596 yards, the other 1,411. The layout is great for seniors, beginners and juniors, as w ell as better players who wish to work on their accuracy and course management. The many lakes, narrow fairways and pesky bunkers offer plenty of challenge to golfers of every skill. If y ou're looking for a quick game after work or to start the weekend before the rest of the family gets out of bed, this is your course. You can walk it very easily and without having to carry more than a half-dozen clubs. P alm Gardens starts off with its most intriguing hole. The first is a par-4 that makes A trip down memory lane GOLFJAMES STAM MER See G OLF, B5

freshly cut fruit, warm, crispy baguette slices, and a generous slice of warm, creamy brie. This appetizer would be perfect for lunch or for those who enjoy wine. The appetizer is definitely large enough for a meal. As we were gushing over the incredible brie, we were served steaming cups of New England clam chowder, which is homemade by Mrs. Tr udel. The soup is hearty and full of lumps of clam and potatoes. F or our entrŽe, my guest decided to try the 16-ounce r ib eye, which is served with either house or Caesar salad or a cup of soup, a vegetable and choice of potato. The steak that was brought out was, without a doubt, one of the finest steaks we've had the pleasure of eating. I had to share the steak with my guest and each bite I had melted in my mouth. I decided to try one of the many seafood dishes available. It was a hard choice between the blackened Mahi with mango salsa, almond encrusted tilapia and all of the different combinations of shrimp and scallops, however, I decided to try the almond encrusted grouper with a pineapple sherry sauce. The fish was unbelievably delicious and pared perfectly with the sauce. I chose the twice-baked potato as a side dish, however next time I visit, I will treat myself to the twice baked sweet potato. When my guest and I were finished with our dinner, Mr. and Mrs. Trudel stopped by our table to chat something that they do frequently with guests. I asked them about the atmosphere and why they suggest folks leave their cell phones in the car while they dine. "I think it's important that families take the time to enjoy a meal together," Mr. Trudel said. "Dinner shouldn't be a quick stop when you're in a hurry. We are a destination. F amilies should enjoy conversation, enjoy a break from the hectic lifestyle that we all have and enjoy an hour or so of good food and great company." Mrs. Trudel agreed. This is a great little spot to r eally enjoy a meal," she said. "W e live close and when I don't cook at home, we come here for dinner. Not because it's our restaurant, but because the food is phenomenal. We have a wonderful chef, Michael D'Aquila, who is simply incredible. His sauces and seafood are topnotch." The Trudel's likened the atmosphere to where Mrs. Tr udel grew up on Martha's V ineyard. "O n the island, you find many little restaurants with patios that are nestled between buildings and offer a great dining experience,"Mr. Tr udel said. "We have tried to r ecreate that experience, and hope our customers sincerely enjoy the space." I nside the restaurant is intimate seating downstairs and an upstairs area that is available for parties. The Trudel's also own and operate the ever-so popular Ja n' s Place in Jensen Beach which is an area staple for delicious breakfasts and lunches. Ja n' s Steakhouse is open for dinner Monday through Saturday and is located at 614 S.W.Bayshore Blvd.,in Port St. L ucie.To make a reservation, special order your favorite lamb,lobster or crab leg dinner or ask a question,call (772) 878-6555.SteakF rom page B1 F riday, December 13, 2013 B4 Port St. LucieHometown News 08527750% Off Any MealPurchase any meal and 2 beverages at full price and get y our 2nd meal at 50% OFF.Coupon valid Mon-Fri only Dine In Only Must present coupon Excludes Side Orders & Daily Specials.2nd Item Must be of Equal or Lesser Value.Expires 12/31/13American CafeServing Breakfast and Lunch 398-231310193 S.Federal Hwy, PSL (Town Centre Shopping Center)Mon thru Sat 7am 2pm Sun 7am 1pm Breakfast OnlyAmerican Cafeof Stuart Serving Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner781-86003286 S.Federal Hwy,Stuart (Wedgewood Commons) Mon thru Sat 7am 2pm Sun 7am 1pm Breakfast Only50% Off Any Meal Soup & 1/2 Sandwich $5.50 AMERI CANCAFE PurchaseTickets Online @www.barn-theatre.com2400 E.

I know we are still experiencing warmer than normal temperatures. Sometime in the near future that will begin to change and we will be hit with some cold temperatures that could fall below freezing. He re are some tips on what to look for and how to cope with it. After a freeze, you may see plants that are shedding their leaves excessively or possibly plants that are showing signs of wilted looking leaves. In some extreme cases, you might have plants that have lost all their foliage completely. U pon inspection, your first r eaction may be that of a panic attack as you see your prized plants damaged. Your first reaction is most likely going to be to trim off all the old leaves and stems that are dead and damaged. The best advice I can give is not to do it just yet. Leave the dead or damaged leaves and branches as they are for now. In a few w eeks when all danger of frost and freeze warnings are over, start your regime of trimming back the damaged plants. This will give the plants a good start for the brisk spring growing season. If y ou happen to have plants that have little or no foliage, don't give up on them just yet. F irst, check to be sure that y ou still have green just under the outer skin of the plant. You can do this by gently scraping a very small area of the skin away to see if the core is green or brown. If you still see a green core, there is a chance that the plant will come back to life. If y ou are nursing a nearly How to deal with winter GARDEN NOOKJOE ZELENAK See GARDEN, B5

a 90 degree dogleg right that starts about 200yards off the tee. Hit your drive much farther than that and you will find yourself in trees or water. Anything too short and you'll find your short approach blocked by trees. The second hole is a 135yard par-3 with a very narrow, yet deep green. M issing right or left means y ou will likely find sand. The third is a 300-yard par4 that requires a well-placed fairway wood or hybrid off the tee. A large bunker guards the front of the large green. M easuring about 175yards from the back tees, the fourth hole is the second longest par-3 on the course. It is also the only hole without a bunker and boasts the largest green. At the par-3 fifth, you will likely hit another different club from the tee. While Palm Ga r dens GC is short and tight, every hole is a different length and makes you hit different clubs at nearly every tee. It's a great design trait, which often isn't found on much longer, much more expensive tracks. Fr om the back tees, the sixth hole can play as long as 200 yards. Bunkers guard this green on both sides. Between the tee and the green trees pinch in at the sides, making the hole feel narrower than it is The eighth hole has water from the tee all the way to the green and guarding the left side. If you play too safely to the right you bring more sand and trees into play. The ninth is a par-4 that can be played in many ways. Fr om the tee you can thread a wedge or short iron onto the fairway protected by water on both sides. P alm gardens GC is quite fun and a quick stroll if you only have a couple of hours to play.

You should water the plant as usual and use a gentle plant starter fertilizer to help get the first set of leaves to pop out. W ith El Nino in full swing, not only are we in danger of cold snaps but also to heavy r ain. Normally, the winter months harbor plenty of dry w eather but during El Nino y ears, above normal rainfall may be the rule. Certain annuals, such as impatience, can get fungus diseases and die if they are in standing water. The best way to prevent this is to raise your annual flowerbeds above y our normal ground level. This is especially important if y ou are planting in an area that may flood during heavy r ains. Raising the bar will help the plants to drain quicker and not be in pools of standing water for an extended period of time. As you can see, El Nino y ears can bring about some definite gardening challenges but it also is the determining factor that can put the brakes on what would have been an exceptionally busy hurricane season.
