The annual nationwide study en-US uses 16 indicators to rank each county across four en-US domains health, education, economic well-being en-US and family and community as an assessment of en-US child well-being.en-US None of the three Treasure Coast counties en-US scored as high as would be expected from per capen-US -en-US ita income. Martin County, with the third highest en-US per capita income in the state of $35,772, ranked en-US eighth out of 67 counties statewide in 2018.en-US Indian River County, with the seventh highest en-US per capita income of $31,918, ranked 26th out of en-US the 67 counties.en-US St. Lucie County, with the 32nd highest per capen-US -en-US ita income of $23,296, ranked 40th of the 67 counen-US -en-US ties.en-US Regardless of ranking, improvements were en-US noted in all three counties in economic well-been-US -en-US ing, Florida Kids Count Director Dr. Norn Dolen-US-en-US lard told Hometown News. The picture in educaen-US -en-US tion was more mixed across the three counties en-US with Indian River showing consistent improveen-US -en-US ment, but mixed results in Martin and St. Lucie en-US Counties.en-US The four education indicators examined were en-US percentage of young children not in school (ages en-US 3-4), percentage of fourth-graders not proficient en-US in reading, percentage of eighth-graders not profien-US -en-US cient in math, and percentage of high school stuen-US -en-US dents not graduating on time.en-US Education was the domain that Indian River en-US ranked the best in at 19.

LUCIE -The City Council en-US worked at length June 18 debating the en-US details in the Becker Road Comprehenen-US -en-US sive Plan Amendment submitted to the en-US state for comment last April before voting en-US 4-1 to keep the plan the same and ask staff en-US to investigate linking city-owned lands en-US into a natural buffer along the corridor. en-US The original draft crafted by Planning en-US Director Patti Tobin and approved in a en-US 4-1 vote April 9 will change the zoning on en-US 195.6 acres along Becker Road from prien-US -en-US marily singlefamily residential to prien-US -en-US marily a new Office category created as a en-US less intensive alternative to general comen-US -en-US mercial and institutional uses. In addition en-US to the Office zoning, approximately 20 en-US acres would be changed to limited comen-US -en-US mercial, 59 acres to mediumdensity resien-US -en-US dential, seven acres to mixed-use and en-US nearly 10 acres left in open space. Council en-US members and city staff insist the purpose en-US of the amendment is to avoid the mistakes en-US made by the city founders in not planning en-US for commercial development along major en-US thoroughfares resulting in a hodgepodge en-US of businesses jammed up against residenen-US-en-US tial enclaves. en-US Mayor Gregory Oravec cast the lone en-US dissenting vote after the latest discussion, en-US complaining about the intrusion of the en-US Office zoning into the residential neighen-US -en-US borhoods and the perceived lack of green en-US buffers along the road.en-US If we were planning out a community, en-US we would either do what St. Lucie West or en-US Tradition have done [and] have commeren-US -en-US cial with sufficient depth, or what we did en-US with Crosstown, [where] we put up a en-US berm and landscaped it, he said.

Fenn Center, located at 2000 en-US Virginia Ave. in Fort Pierce, will be used as en-US the special needs shelter, while Westwood en-US High School, located at 1801 Panther Lane en-US in Fort Pierce, will be the dedicated en-US pet-friendly shelter. Residents can pre-regisen-US -en-US ter for both shelters online at www.stlucieco.en-US gov/eoc.en-US Only residents and caregivers with specifen-US -en-US ic medical needs will be allowed access into en-US the special needs shelter.

Here's advice en-USEarl Stewart is the owner and general en-US manager of Earl Stewart Toyota in North en-US Palm Beach. The dealership is located at en-US 1215 N. Federal Highway in Lake Park. en-US Contact him at en-USwww.earlstewarttoyota.com, en-US call 561-358-1474, fax 561-658-0746 or en-US emailen-US earl@estoyota.com.en-USHen-USopefully the sales or service en-US experience with your car dealer en-US went well but, all too often, they en-US dont.en-US Now what? The advice I give you applies en-US to all business transactions, not just car en-US dealerships.en-US Your first step should be to communicate en-US your complaint ASAP to the General en-US Manager or, preferably, the owner. Be sure en-US that you are talking to the REAL owner or en-US the general manger. A General Manager is en-US over all employees in the entire company. A en-US general sales manager is not a General en-US Manager. If you cant reach the owner en-US (Many car dealerships are either publicly en-US owned or owned by absentee owners), ask en-US to see the General Manager. Often the en-US owner or General Manager is not aware of en-US everything that goes on with all of their en-US customers and employees. They might have en-US a new employee that should not have been en-US hired or received inadequate training. Or, en-US they may simply have a rotten apple that en-US should not be working there. The ease and en-US speed with which you can meet and speak en-US to a General Manager or an owner is a en-US pretty good measure of the integrity of the en-US company as whole. If the owner or General en-US Manager cares enough about her customers en-US to allow total access, it is probably a very en-US good place to do business. In fact, it is a en-US good idea to find this out before you do en-US business.en-US Second, if you cannot reach the owner or en-US General Manager, contact the manufacturer en-US who franchises the dealership. Car dealers en-US have a contract with the manufacturer en-US called a franchise agreement and this en-US contractual agreement requires that they en-US treat their customers with courtesy, en-US efficiency and integrity. Most manufacturen-US -en-US ers have a customer hotline, 800 number, en-US that allows you to call and register a en-US complaint directly. The owner or General en-US Manager of the dealership will be made en-US aware of your complaint. As you might en-US guess, the manufacturer has quite of bit of en-US clout with their dealer. If a dealer does not en-US live up to his side of the contract, his en-US franchise could be canceled or not renewed.en-US The third step I recommend, if numbers en-US one and two dont work, is to contact a en-US consumer agency like The Better Business en-US Bureau or the County Office of Consumer en-US Affairs. These agencies will send your en-US complaint to the dealership and request a en-US written reply. No car dealership or business en-US wants an unanswered complaint in the file en-US of a governmental or private consumer en-US agency.en-US The fourth step is to en-US call the Florida Departen-US -en-US ment of Motor en-US Vehicles, DMV, and/or en-US the Florida Attorney en-US Generals office. These en-US are extreme steps to be en-US used for serious, even en-US illegal, activities. The en-US DMV has the power to en-US suspend or cancel a en-US dealers motor vehicle en-US retail license, putting en-US him out of business. en-US The Attorney Generals en-US Office can file criminal en-US charges and assess en-US large fines, even jail terms. The DMV en-US phone number is (850) 617-2000 and the en-US Attorney Generals phone number is en-US 866-966-7226. You can access complaint en-US forms at this website,www.FloridaCen-US -en-US arDealerComplaints.com.en-US Your last resort is to contact an attorney. I en-US list this last because hiring an attorney just en-US about eliminates the possibility that you can en-US quickly, amicably and inexpensively resolve en-US your differences with the car dealer. Be very en-US careful which attorney you choose. Try to en-US choose one that is primarily interested in en-US helping you and not in generating large fees en-US for himself. Under the Florida Unfair and en-US Deceptive Trade Practices Act, an attorney en-US is entitled to his fees and costs from the en-US defendant in a lawsuit if he wins. These fees en-US can be much larger than the amount of your en-US claim, motivating an unethical attorney to en-US spend more time than is needed and en-US dragging out a case to generate more fees en-US than are necessary. This can be very dangeren-US -en-US ous for you because the car dealers en-US attorneys fees run roughly parallel to your en-US lawyers and you can be held liable for those en-US if you lose the case.en-US Hopefully you never have to resort to the en-US final step of hiring a lawyer. In trying steps en-US one, two, three and four try to present your en-US complaint as concisely and politely as en-US possible. You have every right to be angry en-US when you are taken advantage of, but try to en-US let your anger subside before you speak to en-US or write to someone about your problem. en-US We all react negatively to someone who is en-US profane, raises his voice, or is sarcastic. en-US Your goal of communicating and resolving en-US your complaint is best reached by commuen-US -en-US nicating clearly, politely and concisely.

Oer expires 7-31-18$39.95 proposing, I think its a mistake. I think this en-USplan is detrimental to the future of Port St. en-US Lucie.en-US In an effort to appease the mayors objecen-US -en-US tions from the April 9 meeting -although he en-US ultimately decided to back the plan that eveen-US-en-US ning at the last minute and Councilman John en-US Carvelli opposed on traffic concerns -Planen-US -en-US ning Director Patti Tobin offered the Council en-US an alternative plan during the latest worken-US -en-US shop. She referred to it as The Green Ribbon en-US Plan from the mayors previous requests for en-US more green space similar to that of the Crossen-US -en-US town Parkway. The Green Ribbon Plan en-US would incorporate the 24 lots the city curen-US -en-US rently owns along the Becker Road and any en-US the city would be able to purchase in the en-US future to form a green buffer between the en-US residential areas and the three primary comen-US -en-US mercial intersections with Port St. Lucie, en-US Darwin and Savona boulevards. en-US The idea with the alternate plan was to en-US provide that transition into the [commercial] en-US nodes, she said. en-US Mayor Oravec agreed the new plan was a en-US big step in the right direction but wanted to en-US tweak it even further. en-US Weve always wanted to experiment with en-US live/work, why wouldnt we do that between en-US the nodes, he said. Why wouldnt we have a en-US little bit more green ribbon, push more to en-US keep it [commercial development] at the en-US nodes, and just do the low intensity office-en-US live/work in between. Why couldnt we do en-US that? en-US Vice-Mayor Shannon Martin, however, en-US worried about the financial impact of the en-US mayors desire to expand the buffer.en-US Im nervous about the property acquisien-US-en-US tion piece and what that may look like for us en-US given our funding abilities and priorities, en-US she said. I look at the lots and maybe I think en-US differently, but a couple miles of Brazilian en-US pepper trees dont exactly equate to me to be en-US a green ribbon. I dont think they really add en-US anything in my opinion to the overall landen-US -en-US scape. We have to do things to make that en-US happen.en-US After Ms. Tobin estimated the price tag to en-US be about $5 million to purchase the 126 lots en-US necessary to link the green ribbon to the city-en-US owned lands, Mayor Oravec insisted her en-US $50,000 estimate per lot was inflated and the en-US city could simply leave the single family zonen-US -en-US ing on the property and let market condien-US-en-US tions dictate the price. en-US So what is the financial incentive to develen-US -en-US op that out as a single-family home on a four-en-US lane divided road? he asked. So at some en-US point if the City Council sticks to the master en-US plan long enough, theyre going to have to en-US sell it at the value of a single-family lot on a en-US four-lane divided road. en-US His newest proposal even further frighten-US -en-US ened Vice Mayor Morgan.en-US Are we putting ourselves in a potential en-US legal issue if were sitting here saying were en-US going to keep it this way and were not going en-US to allow anybody to do anything else with en-US it? she asked. Im nervous about that conen-US-en-US versation, and I dont want to be put in that en-US position where were dictating over property en-US rights.en-US City Manager Russ Blackburn then chimed en-US in, reminding the Council the city had hired en-US an outside consultant to help draft the comen-US-en-US ponents of the amendment and emphasizing en-US that doing nothing with the current zoning en-US could contribute to future development on en-US the lots in question. en-US So if you dont want residential, short of en-US acquiring the property, you cant just say you en-US cant do an office if thats really what youd en-US like to see, he said. Youd like to see properen-US -en-US ties aggregated and build an office -and so en-US the consultant recommended -and this is en-US one of several alternatives available, giving en-US more intensity. Now the mayor suggested as en-US an alternative to acquire these properties en-US at some point in time and have them stay as en-US undeveloped parcels, but you would still have en-US the potential to develop the single-family resen-US -en-US idential.en-US Both Vice-Mayor Martin and Councilen-US -en-US woman Stefanie Morgan emphasized the en-US Council had publicly stated its desire to avoid en-US single-family resident development on major en-US arterials in the past, and the latter fumed en-US about further hindering commercial develen-US-en-US opment at the nodes due to inaction by the en-US Council.en-US We had this moratorium in place, and the en-US reason why weve had it for so long is because en-US we said we wanted to do this plan, she said. en-US Well we need to do this plan and make a en-US decision and get there because there are peoen-US -en-US ple out there that do have properties in these en-US commercial nodes. They cant do anything en-US presently, and theyve been held up as a result en-US of our indecision.en-US One of the two public speakers during the en-US workshop, Port St. Lucie real estate broker Al en-US Wetzel, attempted to debunk the mayors en-US rationale for leaving the zoning untouched.en-US I just wanted to speak to the assumption en-USthat a four-lane highway is not conducive to en-US building houses, he said. D.R. Horton put en-US three spec houses on Becker Road, they went, en-US they got bought and people are in there. No en-US matter how logically you think thats not en-US going to happen in the future, Im sorry en-US youre wrong.en-US The Council subsequently voted 4-1 to en-US approve the current plan and look into uniten-US -en-US ing the citys parcels as a green ribbon along en-US the corridor. en-USBeckeren-USFrom page 1

Although gains were observed en-US in health insurance coverage and in reducen-US -en-US ing the number of teens who reported using en-US drugs or alcohol, no change was observed in en-US low birth weight babies or in the number of en-US overweight or obese students.en-US The four economic well-being indicators en-US studied were percentage of children in poven-US -en-US erty (income of $24,339 for a family of two en-US adults and two children), percentage of chilen-US-en-US dren whose parents lack secure employment en-US (no full-time, year-round work), percentage en-US of children living in households with a high en-US housing cost burden (spend more than 30 en-US percent of pretax income on housing), and en-US percentage of teens not in school and not en-US working (ages 16).en-US Martin County was the best in the region en-US in the economic domain, with a score of 12. en-US Martin County had fewer children living in en-US poverty, a low unemployment rate, and en-US fewer households where 30 percent or more en-US of income was spent on rent or mortgage. en-US No change was observed in the number of en-US teens who were neither in school nor worken-US -en-US ing.en-US Indian River County ranked 32 in ecoen-US-en-US nomic well-being. The county had fewer en-US children living in poverty, more people en-US employed and there were fewer households en-US who expended 30 percent or more on housen-US -en-US ing. There was no change in teens not in en-US school and not working.en-US St. Lucie County showed improvements en-US in all four indicators in the economic en-US well-being domain. However, it only en-US achieved a ranking of 49 because greater en-US gains were observed in other counties.en-US The four family and community indicaen-US-en-US tors were percentage of children living in en-US single-parent families, percentage of chilen-US -en-US dren in families where the household head en-US lacks a high school diploma, percentage of en-US children living in high-poverty areas, and en-US rate of teen births per 1,000 females ages en-US 15.en-US Family and community indicators did en-US not show a consistent picture, though, en-US across the board, improvements were seen en-US in juvenile justice contacts, said Dr. Dolen-US-en-US lard.en-US Martin County and was 29th out of the 67 en-US counties in family and community. Martin en-US County had more children living in houseen-US -en-US holds with a single head of household, and en-US more children with verified maltreatment en-US than it had five years earlier. It improved in en-US reducing the number of children living in en-US areas of concentrated poverty and in reducen-US -en-US ing the number of children who had conen-US -en-US tacts with the juvenile justice system.en-US In Indian River County, family and comen-US-en-US munity was the lowest of the domain ranks en-US with a ranking of 40 out of 67. There were en-US fewer children living in single parent houseen-US-en-US holds, fewer children with verified maltreaten-US -en-US ment and fewer children who had contacts en-US with juvenile justice. There were, however, en-US more children living in areas of concentrat en-US-en-US ed poverty (census tracts where 30 percent en-US or more of residents live below the federal en-US poverty level).en-US St. Lucie was ranked 41 in the family and en-US community domain. There were improveen-US-en-US ments noted in the number of children with en-US verified reports of child abuse and neglect, en-US as well as decreases in the number of youth en-US who came into contact with the juvenile jusen-US -en-US tice system. There was no change in the en-US number of children living in single parent en-US households. The number of children living en-US in areas of concentrated poverty increased.en-US Findings suggest continuing efforts are en-US needed to prevent child abuse and neglect, en-US prevent youth from coming into contact en-US with the juvenile justice system and conen-US -en-US tinuing to expand health insurance coveren-US -en-US age, Dr. Dollard said. While there is en-US always room for improvement, the increases en-US in overweight and obese students is a conen-US -en-US cern.en-US Following statewide expansions of health en-US insurance programs, more kids than ever en-US have access to the health care they need to en-US thrive, Dr. Dollard said. But further investen-US-en-US ments are needed to reach the Florida chilen-US -en-US dren who lack coverage.en-US Nationwide, the top five states overall en-US were New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New en-US Jersey, Minnesota, and Iowa. The bottom en-US five states were Alaska, Nevada, Mississippi, en-US Louisiana, and New Mexico.en-US The study authors warned that a potential en-US undercount in the 2020 Census could put en-US children at risk.en-US If we dont count children, we render en-US their needs invisible and their futures en-US uncertain, said Casey Foundation Presien-US -en-US dent and CEO Patrick McCarthy. A major en-US census undercount will result in overcrowden-US -en-US ed classrooms, shuttered Head Start proen-US -en-US grams, understaffed hospital emergency en-US rooms and more kids without health care.en-US Florida Kids Count is part of a nationen-US -en-US wide Kids Count network, a project of the en-US Annie E.

A 2016 study by the East Central Florien-US -en-US da and Treasure Coast Regional Planning en-US Councils showed the annual economic outen-US -en-US put from the lagoon was about $7.6 billion, en-US not counting the $934 million in real estate en-US value of properties located on or near the en-US IRL.en-US According to the IRLNEP, more than en-US 2,000 species of plants, 600 species of fish, en-US 300 species of birds, and 53 threatened or en-US endangered species inhabit our lagoon. Scien-US -en-US entists say the Indian River Lagoon is one of en-US the most biologically diverse estuaries in en-US North America.en-US All of these plants and animals provide en-US perfect opportunities for photo contest suben-US -en-US missions. The five categories of photos for en-US the contest are Working and Playing on the en-US Lagoon, Lagoon Plants and Animals, en-US Scenic, Living Lagoon-Friendly, and en-US Volunteering to Help the Lagoon.en-US Winning photos and some others will be en-US published in the 2019 Indian River Lagoon en-US Calendar to benefit the IRLNEP. The overall en-US winning image will be featured on the calen-US -en-US endar cover.en-US All images must be taken within the Indien-US -en-US an River Lagoon watershed, including its en-US tributaries. Coastal beach photos like surfen-US -en-US ing photos are not eligible.en-US The IRL spans 156 miles of Floridas east en-US coast, from Ponce de Leon Inlet near New en-US Smyrna Beach in Volusia County to Jupiter en-US Inlet on the southern border of Martin en-US County.en-US Treasure Coast residents have representaen-US -en-US tion on the IRL Council Board of Directors, en-US which includes Chairperson Chris Dzaen-US-en-US dovsky of the St. Lucie County Commisen-US-en-US sion, Secretary Susan Adams from the Indien-US -en-US an River County Commission, Brevard en-US County Commissioner Curt Smith, and en-US Martin County Commissioner Ed Fielding.en-US The IRL includes three main water boden-US -en-US ies, Mosquito Lagoon, Banana River and the en-US Indian River Lagoon, none of which are en-US actually rivers. They have no headwaters en-US and no mouths. Rather, the Indian River en-US Lagoon is an estuary, a transitional environen-US -en-US ment between land and ocean. What makes en-US it a specific kind of estuary called a lagoon is en-US that it is shallow and separated from the en-US ocean by barrier islands.en-US For the photo contest, three entries may en-US be submitted per photographer. All must be en-US in landscape format and should use the en-US highest resolution your camera allows. en-US More specifics about format requirements en-US can be found at en-US www.irlcouncil.comen-US.en-US Contestants retain all rights to their imagen-US -en-US es, but must grant permission for unrestricten-US -en-US ed use by the Indian River Lagoon National en-US Estuary Program and IRL Council to use in en-US publications, educational exhibits, and en-US online. Release signatures of any recognizen-US -en-US able persons in a photograph are also en-US required.en-US It is strongly recommended that photogen-US -en-US raphers read the full contest rules before seten-US-en-US ting out to take photos.

en-US 16 Don't forget to protect your skin daily en-USTen-UShis weekend I stepped outside and en-US came to a quick conclusion. Its en-US getting darn hot out there and the en-US sun can be relentless. Just a few minutes en-US outside was enough to make my cheeks a en-US little red. In just those few moments I en-US realized that I should have protected my en-US skin from the damage that the sun and UV en-US rays cause.en-US For those of us that work indoors, we en-US really dont consider how much damage the en-US sun can do to us in the short time we spend en-US in our cars, walking in from the parking lot en-US or the like. Yet, regardless of how little time en-US you spend outside, you need to consider en-US applying sunscreen.en-US As golfers, we spend a lot of time in the en-US elements subjecting our skin to tremendous en-US danger. If you dont already take precauen-US -en-US tions to prevent skin damage, the time to en-US start is now! Its time to pay attention to en-US your skin, make an effort to protect it, and en-US allow yourself a healthier future.en-US For those of us that work outside or play en-US outdoor sports, applying sunscreen to your en-US face, neck, arms and so forth hopefully has en-US become as routine as brushing your teeth or en-US putting on deodorant. With sunscreen now en-US available in convenient sprays and sticks, its en-US easy to apply quickly and without getting en-US your hands greasy.en-US One in five Americans will develop skin en-US cancer during his or her lifetime and more en-US than one million Americans are diagnosed en-US with skin cancer each year. Statistics show en-US that nearly every hour someone in America en-US will die of melanoma. Of all cancers, skin en-US cancer is the most common and nearly half en-US of all Americans who live to age 65 will en-US develop skin cancer. These are scary en-US numbers. Fortunately, skin cancer is the en-US easiest to prevent and cure if detected early.en-US The key to preventing and curing skin en-US cancer is early detection and use of en-US sunscreens to protect your skin. The most en-US common warning sign of skin cancer is a en-US change in the appearance of the skin, such en-US as a new growth or a sore that will not heal.en-US Studies show that just one sunburn will en-US double your risk of developing skin cancer. en-US Children are especially at risk. On average, en-US anyone under the age of 18 has three times en-US the sun exposure of an adult. en-US Melanomas are especially deadly as they en-US tend to spread quickly throughout the en-US entire body. Basal and Squamous cell en-US cancers are much less deadly, but can leave en-US your skin scarred.en-US When you know that you are going to be en-US spending time outside, you should apply en-US sunscreen at least 30 minutes prior to your en-US activity. Its also best to reapply every two to en-US three hours or immediately after getting out en-US of the water. While any sunscreen is better en-US than none, experts recommend using at en-US least a 30 SPF rated sunscreen.en-US Something many people forget to protect en-US is their lips. We now have lip balm with en-US sunscreen available to us. Just as your lips en-US can dry out and chap during the winter, en-US they can also burn from the Sun at any time en-US during the year.en-US As golfers, we tend to ignore the sun, en-US especially when it isnt too hot outside. We en-US feel that a simple cap or riding in a cart en-US protects us from the worst the sun has to en-US offer. This simply isnt true. In fact, as much en-US as 80 percent of the suns rays penetrate en-US clouds, mist and even fog.en-US Sun damage causes premature aging, en-US wrinkles, age spots and dry skin. None of us en-US want to age, much less age faster than en-US nature intended. Look at some of the older en-US guys on Tour and you can tell which ones en-US spent years without protecting themselves.en-US The most often used excuse for not en-US putting on sunscreen is that it will leave en-US your hands greasy and make gripping the en-US club difficult. Companies have found ways en-US for us sports-happy people to apply en-US sunscreen without dirtying our hands. en-US Sprays are one of the most convenient en-US methods for application. I happen to prefer en-US the stick. It never touches my hands and en-US goes on with just a swipe. I think that I get en-US better coverage with it and it fits neatly into en-US my bag.en-US For extra protection for your face, neck en-US and ears, wear a hat with a wide brim, not a en-US baseball-style cap. There are even special en-US clothing products available to keep your en-US body cool, while covering your arms and en-US neck.en-US Our world is changing and whether you en-US believe in global warming or not, you must en-US remember to protect your skin. en-US We all want to live long, healthy lives. If en-US you suspect that you have already damaged en-US your skin from sun exposure or your skin en-US shows any warning signs, by all means, visit en-US your doctor or dermatologist for a check en-US up. en-US James Stammer has been an avid golfer en-US and golf enthusiast for nearly 40 years.

One of en-US the worst offenders has got to be Adobe with en-US their Flash and Adobe Reader update en-US messages popping up on an almost daily en-US basis. en-US What gives? Why is it that you can hardly en-US make it through a day without some en-US program interrupting your workflow en-US nagging you about an update and insisting en-US that you need it? Does ignoring update en-US messages lead down the path of doom or are en-US these constant messages just noise that can en-US safely be ignored? en-US Well, I have some theories that should en-US answer these questions. en-US First, I like to categorize updates into two en-US slots the first being important updates en-US that are dangerous to ignore and the second en-US slot for updates that are trivial and safe to en-US ignore (until actually needed). en-US Lets talk about the first category; why en-US ignoring them can lead down the road to en-US peril and what you should do about them. I en-US categorize things like operating system en-US updates and antivirus updates as important en-US dont ignore. When you see a message en-US telling you that Windows has x amount of en-US updates available or (if you are running a en-US Mac) important operating system updates en-US are available, set aside some time to apply en-US these updates because the operating system en-US is the one central part of the computer that en-US governs everything. en-US Quite often these updates are patches that en-US correct known bugs and often plug security en-US holes that viruses and malware can take en-US advantage of to infect your system. Ignoring en-US these operating system updates can leave en-US you vulnerable to malware or other en-US problems that the updates just may fix. And en-US the fact of the matter is, if your computer is en-US up and running, you are using the operating en-US system so its not like its an update for a en-US program you never use. en-US Antivirus updates are in the same category en-US they are important and ignoring them can en-US leave your system open to attack from en-US viruses that you may encounter as you surf en-US the Internet. Think of it this way every day en-US new viruses are released into the wild and it en-US takes the antivirus companies a while to en-US come up with a definition for these new en-US threats. Its these definitions that are en-US included in the antivirus updates and en-US applying these updates is the only way your en-US antivirus program can recognize (and en-US block!) new threats as you encounter them en-US online. Sure, were all vulnerable to the new en-US threats that havent been defined yet but en-US ignoring the antivirus updates leaves you en-US vulnerable to threats that have already been en-US discovered. If your antivirus software doesnt en-US update itself automatically, ignoring the en-US update messages is just asking for an en-US infection. en-US OK, so weve covered the first category, en-US lets talk about the second; updates that are en-US safe to ignore. en-US As I mentioned, I have a theory about this. en-US On every computer there are hundreds of en-US programs installed. Some programs are used en-US daily and some hardly ever get used at all but en-US all programs have one thing in common en-US they are all written by people and most of en-US them are working 9 to 5 at their programen-US -en-US ming job. When they write a program and en-US then distribute their program to the masses en-US its not over for them. If it were, they would en-US have to look for a new job every time they en-US finished a program. No, what happens is en-US after they release a program when they show en-US up for work the next day they have to do en-US something to justify their salaries so what do en-US they do? They keep working on the program en-US that theyve already released and push these en-US adjustments out as updates. en-US Now again, this is just a theory but its en-US served me well over the years. Keeping that en-US in mind I adopt the attitude of if its not en-US broke, dont fix it and ignore the cacophony en-US of update messages that all the other en-US programs on my machine make and only en-US apply non operating system or non en-US antivirus updates when Im having en-US problems with that particular program. Its a en-US philosophy that has yet to let me down.en-US Sean McCarthy fixes computers. He can be en-US reached at 888-752-9049 or en-US help@Compuen-US -en-US teThisOnline.com en-US (no hyphens).
