U sually I ask them what they are planning on using the machine for and how much memory the machine has. Then I usually can't help but to laugh inside when I hear the answer. I t's very common today to hear things like, "well it only has 2 gigabytes of memory and all I'm planning on doing with it is email and surfing the Web. Will 2 gigs be enough?"

Until now. The Courage Mud Run, the first of its kind on the Treasure Coast, is scheduled for April 26 and 27 at Halpatiokee Pa rk in Stuart and is for anybody looking for a challenge. It is five miles of romping through the mud as competitors tackle 22 obstacles to get from start to finish. Its a grueling, empowering experience and business partners Jennifer Camp of Stuart and Travis Humphreys of Port S t. Lucie are excited to be bringing C ourage Corp.s inaugural event to their own backyards. This area is completely untapped, Ms. Camp said. We love Stuart. Its our home. R egistered runners will be timed and will all receive an event T-shirt and finisher medal, not to mention bragging r ights, provided they can run, walk or crawl their way to the finish line. Athletes can go it alone or register with a team and there are even competitive heats, the first three of each day. The fastest man, woman and team will walk away with a $500 cash prize. Theres even a race for kids ages 7-13, a one-mile course with seven obstacles so they can get down and dirty with mom or dad. W e want to encourage this younger generation to get out there and be active, Ms. Camp said. The Courage Mud Run will also be a spectator-friendly event complete with inflatables for the kids, live music in the afternoons, and the Food Truck Inv asion providing sustenance. The S outh Florida Roller Girls will even be providing a demo at the end of the day on Saturday. I t s meant to be a family friendly environment, Ms. Camp said. B ut its not all mud, fun and games. A portion of the proceeds from the event will go to Hibiscus Childrens Center and Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Each event will be about doing some positive for the community as w ell as having a good time and being part of something empowering, Ms. C amp said. The race may be the first like it in S tuart, but it wont be the last. Ms. C amp and Mr. Humphreys are planning to do another later this year followed by four next year. I m re ally excited to see it all come together, to get it off the ground and see where it goes from here, Ms. Camp said. Those interested in participating must register online before midnight on April 25. The cost for individuals is $145 or $155 for the competitive heats but discounts can be found at multiple locations in the area including LA Fitness, CrossFit and Nutrition Smart. The cost is $50 per person for teams of four or more. Children from 7-13 are $25.

Earl Stewart is the owner and general manager of Earl Stewart Toyota in Nor th Palm Beach.The dealership is located at 1215 N.Federal Highway in L ake Park.Contact him at www.earlstewarttoyota.com, call (561) 3581474,fax (561) 658-0746 or email earl@estoyota.com.Alot of people think that all used cars have a specific value and they can learn this by looking it up in the Blue Book or some other used car wholesale book. Nothing could be further from the truth. The wholesale books that dealers use and those that are available online to consumers have varying degrees of accuracy, but you cant rely on a book tell you the best price at which you can sell or trade in your car. The most accurate book is the Manheim Auto G uide because its based on the latest wholesale auctions nationwide and its updated weekly and daily online. The least accurate book is the National A utomobile Dealers Association guide which relies solely on surveys sent to dealers. The dealers exaggerate the wholesale value of their make to make it easier to take in trades. All of the wholesale books, except NADA, are based on prices of cars sold at auction. However, you must understand that those prices dont give you an accurate price that you should expect for your trade. A car sells at an auction for the price offered by the highest bidder if the seller chooses to accept that bid. I often dont sell my used cars to the highest bidder that w eek because I might get a much higher price the next week. Lots of things affect the level of prices at a car auctionthe weather, holidays, bribing the auctioneer and bribing the buyers. On a cold, rainy day when few dealers show up to buy or sell cars, prices are lower as well as shortly before and after holidays. Sometimes it happens that a buyer greases the palm of the auctioneer so that he doesnt hear (fast gavel) the higher bid from another dealer who bids higher than the dealer who has let the auctioneer know the price at which he wants to buy the car. Sometimes the sellers pay the buyers cash under the table to bid an unrealistically high price for their car. A car doesnt even have to go through the auction block for the o wner to believe it was sold at the auction. Buyers and sellers can make a deal before it goes through the blockvery cozy, only one bidder. Why would they do that? Often the buyers and sellers are employed by the dealer who actually owns the car. The used car manager or wholesale buyer employed by the dealer might pay $2,000 too much for a car if he can earn $500 cash in his pocket from the seller. His boss, the dealer, is never the wiser. Let me hasten to add that the Manheim auctions are very careful to police these kinds of shenanigans and never encourage them. However, as in every large organization (Manheim is the auto auction in the world), there are a few r otten apples. OK, then if the books are wrong and the auctions are wrong, then surely the car dealer must know the value of my trade-in.wrong again. I have a little test on used car appraisal knowledge that I administer to my sales managers from time to time. By the way, my managers are among the most knowledgeable and competent anywhere. This isnt just my opinion but that of all of their peers in this market. My test goes like this. Without prior notice I r andomly select a car from among the 100 or so that come into my service department each day. I ask each of my eight mangers individually to appraise this car for what they think the current wholesale market value is. They keep their appraisal secret from the others and write it down on a piece of paper and hand it to me. Ive been doing this for 30 or more years and Ive never had a variance in appraisals of less than $3,000. Some have been greater than $10,000. The reason I do this is to r emind all of my managers of exactly what Im explaining in this article.Nobody knows the exact v alue of a used car. Thats important to my managers because under appraising a used car can cost us a sale. Over appraising a used car can cost us a wholesale loss at the auto auction. Therefore we always check and r echeck our appraisals and go so far as to call other dealers and even put carsHometown News PORT ST.

Save moneyI want to say that one trash day a week would be sufficient. It would save the county a lot of money. B ut there should be a separate day for r ecyclables, too.Be nice, momsI had run in with a mom with her two kids in the car giving me the one finger salute. What kind of message is this to give our kids? I think some moms need anger management classes. Moms, keep it clean for the kids sake.Preaching no to TV?Is there a church in the area that discourages TV use? I don't mean forbid. In our culture that wouldn't work and anyway, that's not what I'm looking for. I mean a church that discusses, explains and teaches why it's unhealthy to sit there and watch the boob tube. I'd like to learn about propaganda in the media, how to spot it and how it affects us. What I've found is that our churches actually encourage TV use and haven't the foggiest clue as to what's going wrong. If there isn't such a church, is there any church that would like to explore this?Be courteous, bikersI normally dont complain about a lot of things, but these bicyclists on Sunday mornings on A1A, are just getting too much and the audacity of some of them blows my mind. What gives them the right and privilege of riding across the whole lane of highway so that the cars have no choice but to r ide behind them or take a serious chance and try and pass them? If there are police or sheriffs reading this, please just tell me why you are not seeing this, patrolling this area or are allowing this? If we motorists have to obey the rules of the road, why dont the bicyclists? Riding six abreast and blocking the whole lane is totally wrong and dangerous! And if you lightly beep your horn, they turn around and ignore you or show some other kind of distaste. My tax dollars should be taking care of this in a manner of police patrol on Sunday mornings, or dont you work on Sundays? Driving concernsI'm pretty sure the driver of a car is supposed to stop at a red light, and, if the coast is clear, make a right turn after stopping. What's up with these ignorant drivers who pull up to an intersection where they have a red light and never even look to see if another vehicle is proceeding through the intersection? Aren't drivers supposed to stop before turning right? It also amazes me about u-turns. The people with the red lights trying to make r ight turns seem to think they have the r ight of way for making a right turn, while the driver with the green light is trying to make a u-turn onto the same street. No one wants to wait their turn. Then kaboom, there's an accident where no one will assume the blame and passengers are hurt. Sl ow down people! Try adjusting your schedule to leave more time to get to y our destination. And hang up those cell phones.On teachersMy child is in public school. What's my struggle? Hoping he'll get a teacher who finds favor with the administration so there aren't too many behavioral students in his class. Why? Because there are few consequences for the behavioral student today. One would think the behavioral (using the politically correct term here) student would be sent home to lessen interruptions in the classroom and be disciplined by the parent. If mom or dad have to interrupt their day, maybe the student will be less likely to interrupt the classroom. I can tell you it doesn't happen at our school. What about your school?

Another good reason not to accept only one dealers appraisal is that dealers will often knowingly undervalue your trade-ink, especially if youve negotiated a very low price for your new car. The dealer vernacular for his is stealing the trade. Now that weve established that nobody has any idea what your trade-in is worth, what does that mean to you? It means you should stop worrying about getting an accurate appraisal because theres no such thing. However, what you should positively insist on is getting the highest appraisal. In fact, you should hope that the guy who gave y ou the highest appraisal was very inaccurate and made a huge mistake that will cost his dealership a large wholesale loss at the auction. Y ou accomplish this by never accepting only the appraisal by the car dealer from whom youre buying y our next car. Before you allow him to appraise your car, you should get at least two other bids from dealers of the make of car you are buying. F or example, a Ford dealer will usually appraise a Ford for more than a Honda dealer because more people wanting to buy a used Ford will shop the larger selection at a Fo rd dealer. Deal directly with the used car department at these other dealerships. Tell the used car manager that you need to sell your car for cash and that youre getting two more bids from two other dealers. If you have the time to get more than two more bids its even better. Another good place to get a bid on your used car is from CarM ax, the largest retailer of used cars in the world. They buy lots of cars directly from owners even when they dont buy a car from CarMax. Their prices are sometimes higher than dealers will offer you. After you determine the highest bidder, if its not the dealer from whom youre buying, give him the r ight of last refusal. If he can match the price from his competitor, you save the sales tax on the price of y our trade. EarlF rom page 3 clothing makeover from Eco and a local hair salon will be provided as w ell.

very important to me and I want to make sure my new machine is going to be able to run it OK. Are you sure that just 2 gigabytes is going to be able to do the job? And, "the ad says this machine can take up to 4 gigabytes. M aybe I should get four just to be safe. What do you think?" I t's at that point I usually have to stifle a chuckle because to me that's funny. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to be rude, cocky or arrogant, it's just that I've been doing this for a while and I can remember, not too long ago, when just the idea of having a gigabyte of memory in your home computer was the stuff of science fiction. I can even remember writing a column in 1996 explaining to readers how they should be able to run their machines with just 16 megabytes of memory. (Just to put that in perspective, 1,000 megabytes equals 1 gigab yte). Again, don't get me wrong, I'm not saying you can run one of today's machines with only 16 mb; you certainly do need considerably more than that to run 8, 7, Vista (or even the now discontinued XP), but even with a fancy operating system such as W indows 8, the basic tasks haven't changed much and 2 gigs of memory should be just fine to check email, surf the Web and run Quicken. Another way to put the whole memory question into perspective is to think of it in terms of money. B ack around 1996, when Windows still in its infancy, RAM was very expensive. At the time that I wrote that previous column, saying 16 mb was enough, RAM was going for about $50 per megabyte, meaning that the 16 mb I was advocating cost about $800. So that means a gigabyte (1,000 megabytes) back then would have cost about $50,000! Another factor that I consider is the level of machine that they are replacing. Very often, I will speak to someone who is replacing an old system (maybe an old Pentium with 128 mb or ram or something) and they wonder if 2 gigabytes will work for them on the new machine. Doesn't it stand to r eason that if you were able to surf the We b, check your email and run Q uicken on the machine you are r eplacing, then a new machine, with more than 10 times the memory, shouldn't have a problem handling those same tasks? T oday, the tasks haven't changed. I t's still email, the Web and yeah, maybe some critical program such as Q uicken or something, but whenever I hear people pondering whether 2 gigabytes will do it for them I can't help but hear that little "grandpa voice" in the back of my head saying, "back in my day we couldn't afford a gigabyte. We got by with 16 megs and we liked it!" B ack in 1996, I don't think I could have ever imagined being able to get a gigabyte of RAM, let alone pay less than $100 for it. The whole thing makes me wonder what things will be like a decade or so in the future. In 10 years will we have people wondering if 1 terabyte (1,000 gigab ytes) will be enough or if maybe they should spring for two? Regardless, I'm sure they will probably still only use their machine for checking e-mail, surfing the Web and running Quicken.

One of which is the owner, artistic director, instructor and former professional ballet dancer Loretta M iller. S he has danced with the Pennsylv ania Ballet, Boston Ballet, toured in Eur ope and Asia and even taught Br oadway stars. She has taught locally at Indian River State College and was the artistic director at Florida Arts and Dance Company for six y ears, but decided it was high time she went out on her own. When the opportunity presented itself, with a 30-year career behind her and the encouragement of students, Ms. Miller opened The D ancers Studio in January of this y ear and started teaching her students her way. It is a way that includes artistry, discipline, a firm grasp of the fundamentals, and a love for the craft. I t s always been a passion for me. I cant imagine my life without ballet or any kind of dance, really, Ms. M iller said. It s a passion that she aims to pass on to her students, no matter what their age or aspirations. At The Dancers Studio, Ms. Miller and former student Cristina Martin who went on to dance professionally, offer classes for both young and old, beginner and experienced alike. B ecause the classes are taught by former professionals, students can take away extra knowledge and insight from classes, according to Ms. Miller. I was there. I did it, Ms. Miller said. Because I experienced it I have the capacity to inspire the children truly, honestly.

The festival takes place on April 25-26 and according to Fair Manager J ay Spicer, there will be something for everyone to enjoy. There will be vendors, bounce houses for the kids, musicians and dancers, a cornhole tournament with cash prizes, lots of beer, and more barbeque than anywhere else in the area. This is the largest barbeque event on the Treasure Coast, Mr. S picer said. Local bands like Gravel Kings and J upiter Trailer Trash will provide the tunes and Juliet the Cow will lead Co w Chip Bingo as a fundraiser for child care provider Treasure Coast F amilies. Cash prizes will be awarded. The Humane Society will also be on site with adoptable pets and the S tuart Police will bring their dogs, too, for a K-9 demonstration. The Mar tin County Sheriffs Department will offer fingerprinting for children and a variety of food venders will serve up sustenance. B ut the main attraction for the w eekend is the barbeque. There will be barbeque, barbeque and more barbeque, said Mr. Spicer. B arbeque vendors will be doing more than serving up their ribs, chicken, beef and pork, theyll be competing with it, too. Pr ofessional barbequers from across Florida will cook up their best in the Florida barbeque Association event in hopes of winning the title of barbeque champ and valuable prizes. Last year, 25 professional teams r olled in with their oversized smokers and grills to participate. I f you want to see how the pit masters do it, come by for a quick education, Mr. Spicer said. Of course, amateur grillers are w elcome to compete in their own division if they think theyve got what it takes. How ever, its not all fun and games and finger-licking cuisine; the event is also a fundraiser for the Martin County Fair Scholarship Fund. The proceeds for the event, together with money raised at this years Martin County Fair will go toward scholarships for area seniors who are pursuing a degree in agriculture. Mr. Spicer said while it may not be a glamorous fundraiser, its an important one. W e dont have sick kids, abused puppies, or disabled veterans, but no farmers, no food, said Mr. Spicer. The Festival runs from 410 p.m. on April 25 and from 10 a.m. to midnight on April 26. Admission is free. FRIDAY, APRIL 18, 2014 PORT ST.

The wind cant stop a good day on the waterDays are starting off with cool mornings, then lots of sunshine with the light showers. The weathers not bad, but the wind is still blowing. March and Apr il seem to be a little confused. S eas have been less than polite, not crazy but not inviting either. The waves are four feet and about four seconds apart, so I would say a bigger boat is the answer. So the hardcore angler, or one with a big boat, found some nice dolphin south of the inlet trolling small ballyhoo. The easterly wind created many weed lines and color lines that hold fish if you can get to them. C obia and permit are the happiest fish. Conditions have given them some time to recover with plenty of them eating live baits. Now if the seas will quiet down a bit just maybe I might get out there. S eas have been too close for bottom fishing, but this is a new w eek. In spite of the wind and sea conditions, the surf has not been that bad and the best part is the fish are eating, no matter the time. One would get tired of the wind on the beach, but you only had to be there a short time when the fish are biting, who cares? Blues have been caught in numbers for the early angler with a mix of macs and some r eal big jacks all eating cut baits. Whiting, big croaker and some pompano have been biting for the r est of the day and in that mix will be blues, macs and jacks. P ompano have finally been biting at the bridges. They have been biting early one day and late the next, but it they were there. The little jigging spoons did their job. They werent big fish, but they werent at the bottom of the slot either. Then came the Jacks and everybody left they missed the best part. Br idges have been the place with a large variety from black drum to trout, blues, macs, sheep head, snook and a few I have forgotten. The best part was there was some one there all day and shrimp caught them all. There have been lots of trout from many locations from Middle Cove south to Sail Fish Flats, but the bite was early about two hour after sun up and they were gone, but plenty we re eating shrimp or small jigs. R eds were in the mix, not a lot of them, but they were there and then came the blues eating everything. S nook continue to be strong, lots for the late night bridge anglers. If you were fishing the flats they we re probably eating anything you pitched. Ye s, the wind can be a bit uncomfortable but when it comes to fishing it depends whom you talk to.

In a previous article we talked about termites and roaches. This week we will talk a little about spiders and ants. Did you know there we re ov er 40,000 species of spiders in the world? The fact is that most spiders are actually beneficial and they eat a huge number of undesirable insects in y our yard or home (up to 100 per year per spider!). The problem is that many people are deathly afraid of these tiny creatures. It is partly due to the four var ieties of spiders that are poisonous. The only spiders we need to fear are the brown recluse, black widow, yellow sac and hobo. In actuality, you are usually within range of a spider wherever y ou are at any given time. You might not see him, but he is there. Remember, 99 percent of all spiders are harmless. In our region, we need to be most concerned with two types, the brown r ecluse and black widow. The brown r ecluse lives up to his name very well. M ost inspections will not allow you to visibly find these guys as they love dark, moist areas. The bite is very painful and requires immediate medical attention. The venom will immediately begin to eat away at the tissue causing a painful sore. This spider can be identified by a violin shaped markings on its back. The black widow spider does not like confrontation and will usually try to r un away from you rather than just attack. They will usually only bite if provoked to do so. They are identified by the famous hour glass symbol on their abdomen. If bitten, immediate medical attention is usually required. M any other harmless spiders can bite but usually it will be a matter of local swelling similar to what you might get from a mosquito bite. If you want to keep your home as spider free as possible, try using the non-chemical solution of soap and water. Simply use your favorite dish soap and add enough water to make the solution easy to spray or apply. Use along window sills, baseboards, around pipes or anywhere a small creature might be able to enter the home. You can also get an insecticidal soap mixture at your favorite garden center. Using the soap solutions are not only good for the environment but it is also good for you since you are avoiding the use of dangerous chemicals. Another natural method for use outdoors is a salt and water solution. M ix about an ounce of table salt in a gallon of water and spray or apply around the perimeter of your house.

W ater safety and safe practices are essential in preventing drowning, said D ennis Miles, DCF Southeast Regional M anaging Director. Its important to always supervise children, know how to swim, teach all children to swim, use water safety barriers, know what to do in an emergency and learn CPR. These tools and skills can make a critical difference in saving a childs life and preventing a tragedy. In F lorida, drowning is the leading cause of death among children ages 14. The state loses more children under the age of 5 to drowning than any other state in the nation. As swim season approaches, here are some key steps to preventing drowning deaths: S upervision: A responsible adult should always actively watch children when they are in the pool. Distractions such as using your phone or getting involved in a big conversation should be avoided as drowning can happen in just a few minutes. Designate a Water W atcher to keep an eye on swimmers. B arriers: A child should never enter a pool area unaccompanied by an adult, and Florida law requires barriers for home pools. Barriers should be used to physically block a child from the pool such as child-proof locks on all doors, a pool fence with self-latching and self-closing gates, as well as door and pool alarms. Pool covers should be professionally fitted, as a simple canv as covering can trap a child in the water. S wimming Lessons: The American A cademy of Pediatrics recommends that children ages 4 and older get swimming lessons and parents of children ages 1-3 consider swimming lessons, as studies have shown it reduces drowning incidents. Caregivers should learn to swim as well or designate an adult who can swim to accompany children who are swimming. Emergency Preparedness: When a child stops breathing there is a small window of time in which resuscitation may occur, but only if someone knows what to do. All Floridians are urged to learn CPR. In an emergency, it is critical to have a phone nearby and immediately call 911.

Ants are one of the most common insects on the planet and can be found everywhere, including your home. They come in all sizes and shapes and they seek or eat a variety of foods. The best way to keep ants of the house is by prevention. Be sure to look for old caulking that might be cracked or peeling away around windows and doors. Repair as necessary. Be sure to keep plants from touching the structure. Ants can use the branches as highways. Be sure all sweets and leftov ers are covered tightly. It also helps to clean the crumbs from your toaster r egularly. If you do encounter ants in your home, there are a number of methods y ou can use to eradicate them. There are a large variety of ant traps out there that are safe to use because the ingredients are stored within the trap and y ou do not handle them directly. For a more natural approach, try baiting the ants with cream of wheat cereal. The ants will eat the cereal and afterward, the mixture expands and kills the ant. I have also heard of folks using pancake syrup as bait in small low containers. The ants find the mixture and die because they get trapped by the sticky solution. These methods will work for most common house ants. If you have fire ants, that will require a whole different article. As you can see you can often control pests with common household products you already have on your shelves. U sing these natural methods are good for you and the environment.

My late friend, Mike M urphy, used to refer to my golf bag as a travesty. Being in the media, I get to test and try new clubs all the time. I hate not having my trusty old version with me if the new one happens to not quite work for me. W atching the Masters this weekend, I heard a story on how Phil Michelson considered only carrying 12 clubs in his bag. I'm sure his caddy would have liked the lighter weight, but I cannot see why one would take less clubs than the rules allow. Phil stated that he found that over all his rounds at A ugusta National, he had used only 12 clubs out of his arsenal. This entire thing started me thinking about why the rules give us 14 clubs. Why not 18 or 10? I was determined to find out. Perhaps I could find a loophole that allows me to carry an extra driver or wedge without being r idiculed. There is a famous old painting of King Charles I of England playing golf at the Links of Leith in Scotland back in 1641. Next to the King stands a young man holding his Majesty's clubs. All six of them. It seems that I would have had a difficult time playing this game nearly 375 years ago. I nto the mid-1800s most paintings and other depictions of golfers, show players and caddies carting along an assortment of clubs, but never more than eight or nine. It seems our sport's forefathers had the skill and imagination to hit many, if not all, shots with just a few clubs. Then along came Lawson Little, winning the U.S. And British Amateurs in 1934 and 1035 with a collection of around 30 clubs in his bag. If you think the USGA and the R&A are upset over 'anchoring your putter, you can imagine the uproar over Little's bag. If the use of 30 clubs surprises you, Little had good reason. Before the mid1920s wood shafts were all that were approved for play. When the USGA and the R&A approved the use of steel in shafts in the late 1920s golfers now had a shaft that was stronger, lighter and more consistent. The problem was steel shafts took time to get used to. As a result players felt that the new shafts inhibited their ability to work the ball and create a variety of shots from one club. To make certain they could hit any shot they faced during a round, they began to carry more clubs. In 1935 one player showed up with 32 clubs in his bag. He had a full set of r ight and left handed clubs so that he could hit any and every possible shot from any place on the course. This fanned the flames for some sort of r uling by the powers in charge of protecting the game. George Jacobus, president of the PGA of America, asked the ruling bodies if they had any plans to restrict the number of clubs allowed for a player and stated that his organization would back any such rule. For tunately for both the USGA and the R&A, the industry already had a solution, a new equipment idea, the matched set of clubs. Up until the 1920s players carried all sorts of mismatched clubs. Then in 1926, Scotsman George Nicoll introduced the first matched set. By decade's end all manufacturers had introduced a matched set of nine irons. Su rv eys were taken at the U.S. Open and British Amateur in 1935 and it was found that the average player was carrying 18 clubs. This concerned the USGA as it felt that such a large number of clubs took away from the skill factor of competitive golf. It also felt it caused inequality between those w ealthy enough to afford a large cache of clubs and those who could not. In 1938 the 14-club limit went into effect. No one truly knows how they came to that number, but many believe that it was the acceptance of nine matched irons, plus a putter and four woods that gave them the total. I t's been that way ever since.The Michael Murphy Memorial Golf OutingA few weeks back I mentioned that I was putting on a memorial golf outing for my late friend and radio co-host. I now have all the details. On Sunday, May 18th the Inaugural M ichael Murphy Golf Outing will take place at St. James Golf Club in Port St. L ucie.
