One leaves the game en-US with those lofty ideals confirmed; the en-US other leaves dejected and defeated.en-US The match-up Friday night at South en-US County Regional Stadium between en-US Vero Beach High School and St. Lucie en-US West Centennial has all that drama. en-US The two powerhouses enter the game en-US as the only 5-0 undefeated teams on en-US the Treasure Coast.en-US An equally intriguing subplot is the en-US first ever gridiron battle between two en-US close childhood friends, Jahfari Haren-US -en-US vey of Vero Beach and Myles Youngen-US -en-US blood of Centennial.en-US Defensive end Jahfari was one of his en-US teams heroes last week, scooping up a en-US fumble in the last minute of play and en-US returning it for a touchdown to give en-US Vero Beach a 27-20 win over Pahokee.en-US Myles Youngblood, who plays both en-US wide receiver and quarterback, has en-US developed into a triple threat who can en-US pass, catch, and run. His Centennial en-US team rolled over Martin County 30-0 en-US last week, setting up this weeks battle en-US against not only VBHS, but also his old en-US friend Jahfari.en-US Both know that there will likely be at en-US least one time during the game when en-US they have to hit each other really hard. en-US Whoever succeeds most in that en-US encounter will carry the burden of en-US knowing that his friend was defeated. en-US Both are ready for that hit, even eager.en-US Theres no holding back on the en-US field, Jahfari told Hometown News. en-USFootball en-US clash en-US features en-US battle of en-US two best en-US friendsen-USBy Mike Winikoffen-USmwinikoff@hometownnewsol.com LOOKING FOR A HOME 7 en-USThis pretty kitty is ready en-US for a family to call her en-US own en-USMEET JEZEBEL en-USVISIT US ONLINEen-USWant to catch up on a en-US favorite columnist or see en-US more pictures and more en-US community news? en-USMISSING A en-US FAVORITE FEATURE? en-USTAKE US WITH YOUen-USTouring with en-US the Townies en-US features en-US reader-suben-US-en-US mitted en-US photos from en-US travels.

LUCIE COUNTY The Humane Society en-US of St. Lucie County will have to rely on a month-en-US to-month contract with both the City of Fort en-US Pierce and St. Lucie County for the next few en-US months after both municipalities refused to en-US approve the organizations annual contract en-US recently due to numerous allegations of misen-US-en-US management. en-US The Fort Pierce City Commission launched en-US the debate Sept. 17 when Commissioner Rufus en-US Alexander asked to pull the contract approval en-US off the Consent Agenda for discussion. Code en-US Compliance Manager Peggy Arriaz told him en-US and his fellow commissioners that the 2019 proen-US -en-US posed Humane Society contract reflected only a en-US moderate $3,000 increase from the 2018 conen-US -en-US tract.en-US There have been concerns about the manen-US -en-US agement of the Human Society, she said. One en-US of the concerns I had last year was that we did en-US not have a vet at our Savannah shelter, and that en-US was a change that they did make this year. en-US Theyre not there all the time, but theyre there en-US more than they were last year.

Ever.en-US So if hes got to totally lay Myles out with en-US a hit, will he do it?en-US Most definitely, Jahfari said. And I en-US hope he does the same to me.en-US Myles Youngblood feels the same way.en-US Im going to give him my worst, Myles en-US said. Our whole friendship is about keepen-US-en-US ing our heads on the field and watching en-US everything that goes on. He knows that, so en-US if I catch him slipping, Ive got to do it.en-US Jahfari and Myles played together one en-US year, when they were freshman at John en-US Carroll High School.en-US He transferred to Centennial first, then en-US I transferred to Vero Beach a couple of en-US weeks later, Jahfari said.en-US Both men have great respect for each en-US others game.en-US There is nothing I could say that is en-US weak about his game, Myles said about en-US Jahfari. Hes not normal. Theres nothing I en-US can say that he does wrong. He just keeps en-US working and getting better.en-US Hes an athlete, Jahfari said about en-US Myles. He can do multiple things. He can en-US play quarterback, receiver, he can move, en-US but I have more speed than him, Ive got en-US more speed.en-US Yeah, Id give him that, Myles replied.en-US Hometown News spoke with each just en-US before last weeks games, when Vero Beach en-US was about to play Pahokee and Centennial en-US was preparing for Martin County. But it en-US was clear they each had their eyes on their en-US upcoming face-off.en-US This will be the first time we have en-US played against each other in a real game, en-US Jahfari said. Im really excited! Theres en-US something special going against my buddy en-US for the first time. Both of our teams are en-US undefeated. Its going to be a fun game.en-US Its definitely something we have to en-US prepare for, but I dont think its something en-US that were not ready for, Myles said. I en-US think well come out with the win by about en-US 7 points. Its going to be a tight game.en-US On that point they disagreed.en-US I say Vero Beach over Centennial by at en-US least 30 points, Jahfari said. Nah, Ill say en-US 21 points.en-US The two friends talk every day, and en-US though Jahfari says theyve been taunting en-US each other in preparation for the game, en-US Myles says Nah, not at all, were just keepen-US -en-US ing it humble. Asked if they expected to en-US trash-talk each other during the game, en-US both said they did.en-US Oh yeah, definitely, Jahfari said. en-US I might get in his face a couple of times, en-US just to let him know, Myles responded. It en-US is what it is. If he says something, Im en-US going to say something back.en-US Asked if they had a bet on the game, like en-US Myles having to wear a VBHS jersey or en-US Jahfari having to wear a Centennial jersey en-US if the other team wins, Jahfari said Not en-US yet, but thats not a bad idea, Im going to en-US have to talk to him about that.en-US We dont know if they ever made that en-US bet, but if you see one of them wearing the en-US jersey of the other team next week, youll en-US know why.en-US One thing Myles Youngblood and Jahen-US -en-US fari Harvey agreed on is that no matter en-US what happens in the game, they will en-US remain the best of friends.en-US It doesnt matter, well always be brothen-US-en-US ers, Jahfari said.en-US Oh, of course. Hes my best friend, closen-US -en-US est friend, and I love him, said Myles.en-US Vero Beach High School travels to en-US South County Regional Stadium to play en-US Centennial Friday Sep 28, 7 p.m. The staen-US -en-US dium is located at 560 NW University en-US Blvd., Port St. Lucie.en-USClashen-USFrom page 1 Photo courtesy of Jahfari Harvey en-USJahfari Harvey, left, a senior at en-US Vero Beach High School, and en-US Myles Youngblood, right, a senior en-US at St. Lucie West Centennial High en-US School, will face each other when en-US their respective teams play each en-US other Friday night in St. Lucie en-US West.en-USPhoto courtesy of Myles Youngblooden-USMyles Youngblood, left, and Jahen-US-en-US fari Harvey, right, have been best en-US friends since they started their en-US freshman seasons at John Caren-US -en-US roll High School in 2015.

That en-US would be helpful to me; Ive heard a lot of en-US rumors also, so I think its time for them to en-US speak to us and speak to the community en-US and tell us what challenges theyre facing en-US and how theyre addressing each one of en-US those.en-US Commissioner Reginald Sessions then en-US made it clear hed lost faith in the Humane en-US Society and wants to consider alternatives.en-US If theres an agency that is financially en-US capable of doing so, then we need to en-US explore other avenues for the future en-US because we dont know what the future en-US holds, he said. At the end of the day, en-US youre going to be responsible for these en-US animals and were going to have to put en-US them somewhere. So I dont think we en-US should be putting a whole lot of faith in en-US this agency, at least from what Im being en-US told, and if that is the case, we need to be en-US exploring other possibilities.en-US For his part, Commissioner Jeremiah en-US Johnson said he was pleased city staff had en-US rejected the Humane Society request to en-US raise its annual budget from $130,000 to en-US $180,000 in the 2019 contract. en-US The other thing that I am happy about en-US is the quarterly payment terms, he said. I en-US think I can hold steady at that $133,000 in en-US quarterly payments, but were going to en-US hold their feet to the fire a little bit more, en-US he said. And in six months I think we do en-US need to have a joint meeting with all the en-US municipalities and the Humane Society en-US and figure out what the future holds.en-US Commissioner Reginald Sessions ultien-US-en-US mately made a motion to postpone the en-US discussion until mid-October. That en-US motion passed unanimously and caused en-US the contract to automatically lapse and en-US the Humane Society service go into a en-US monthly agreement instead. The next eveen-US-en-US ning the County Commission took up the en-US same discussion, with Commissioner en-US Kathy Townsend asking her fellow comen-US -en-US missioners to consider alternative agenen-US-en-US cies for providing animal care services in en-US the future.en-US There are serious, serious issues going en-US on there, she said. It is of great concern en-US to me, and I also know three of the biggest en-US contributors that have supported and en-US funded that Humane Society have pulled en-US their funding. However, we have amazing en-US non profits, and I have had conversations en-US with a couple of veterinarians in the area en-US that are willing to step up to the plate and en-US take over the Humane Society.en-US Commissioner Linda Bartz agreed with en-US Commissioner Townsends desire for a en-US month-tomonth agreement with the en-US organization but said interested parties en-US needed to put actions with their words.en-US If we have people who are volunteering en-US to be vets, we need to have them come to en-US the table because the fact is we know we en-US need it, we cant sit back and say if were en-US willing to come up to the table, she said. en-US This is important -we need to give up en-US our time, we need to just do it. This also en-US gives time for the partners to check with en-US the Humane Society of the USA and also en-US look at other alternatives. en-US Commissioner Bartz then made the en-US motion to approve a month-to-month en-US contract and waive the second discussion en-US on the issue so the funding could be in en-US place by the beginning of the fiscal year en-US Oct. 1, which passed unanimously. en-USContracten-USFrom page 1 en-US en-US Race for Recovery:en-US 8th annual race, en-US hosted by New Horizons Mental Health, will en-US be held from 6:30-10 a.m. at First Data Field, en-US 525 N.W.

The opinions included are not those of Hometown News or its employees.en-USPlease limit your submissions to 250 words, so that we can include more entries. en-US Readers are asked to refrain from making slanderous or libelous statements. en-USFlorida's toxic algaeen-USThis is in answer to the man who said the en-US Feds dont want to clean up Florida's waters. en-US The Federal Government has been trying en-US to get FL to clean up its waterways since en-US 1998. When they finally got tough 6 years en-US ago, Gov. Scott and the Repubs in control all en-US stonewalled, and said these onerous reguen-US -en-US lations would be too hard on FL businesses. en-US Gov. Scott slashed the budgets of all 5 of en-US FLs water management districts, by 40 peren-US -en-US cent. Scientists and engineers were laid off; en-US all land buying projects seem to have en-US stopped. Then FLs Environmental Commisen-US -en-US sion, whose board is appointed by Governor en-US Scott, weakened criteria for 23 toxic chemien-US -en-US cals in FL waterways, allowing higher levels en-US of benzene, for instance.en-USLive clerks vs. machinesen-USA reader lamented the limited number of en-US live clerks vs. scan checkout options and his/en-US her preference for live clerks. I heartily en-US endorse those sentiments and clerks en-US replaced by machines certainly felt the same en-US way. Its a safe bet that overworked real peoen-US-en-US ple who are still employed are earning minien-US-en-US mum wage and stay because they dont have en-US a choice. Florida minimum wage is among en-US the lowest, if not the lowest in the nation.en-US Big corp billionaires tempt consumers en-US with low prices and the ease of ordering. en-US The downside is: lost jobs and lost privacy. en-US Every time you access the Internet for inforen-US -en-US mation and order via the internet you are en-US tracked and your information can be used en-US for more than marketing purposes. Apps en-US are required in some stores for sale items. en-US No app you pay regular price. The Interen-US -en-US net is largely responsible for the creation of en-US this go along to get along society.en-US This morning this headline caught my en-US attention: Should cashless retail stores be en-US banned? Amazon and Walmart are fighting en-US a New Jersey bill that would require stores to en-US accept cash, i.e., if corporations get their en-US way all purchases would have to be made via en-US plastic or app or from some other technical en-US device. Again, technology taking away conen-US-en-US sumer choice and rights.en-US Would Hometown News consider doing en-US a survey about how locals feel about this? en-US Businesses would benefit from the informaen-US-en-US tion which comes directly from consumers, en-US who should be the ones determining how en-US they want to do business.en-USAlso prefers live clerksen-USI happen to agree. People need to stop en-US and realize you don't get a discount for not en-US only doing your own shopping, but checken-US -en-US ing yourself out and bagging your items and en-US taking them to your car.en-US You're paying as much, if not more, and en-US there are less employees. The only place en-US making money off this scam is the store.en-US I have gotten into the habit now if there en-US are only one or two lanes open with a real en-US person and the lines are long, I go back into en-US the store, fill my cart to the brim with non-en-US food items and then leave it.en-US At least one of the few employees left in en-US the store might get some overtime pay for en-US putting the stuff back. If I want to self check, en-US I will stay home, save my gas and shop on en-US Amazon. At least they deliver.en-US'Give bicyclists more room'en-USWhere would you propose bicycle riders en-US ride? On the sidewalks that are meant for en-US pedestrians?en-US It sounds to me you are one of the people en-US who dont move over and give a bicycle rider en-US proper clearance. The only time I see a bicyen-US -en-US cle in the middle of the road is usually when en-US the rider is crossing a road, or going around en-US an obstacle, or in a neighborhood on a back en-US street. This is where you find the neighboren-US -en-US hood children riding who delight in racing en-US and riding in circles and generally doing en-US innocent kid stuff.en-US Bicycles are subject to the same rules as en-US motor vehicles. Just like motor vehicle operen-US -en-US ators, you will find some breaking the law, en-US riding against traffic. This is a danger to all en-US because most cars, when pulling out of a en-US driveway or into an intersection, are not en-US looking for bicycles riding on the wrong en-US side of the road, and just not paying attenen-US -en-US tion.en-US They should be ticketed as should a en-US motorist. Maybe we need more bicycle rider en-US education, but how in the world would en-US requiring a bicycle to be registered solve any en-US of these issues? How about motorists and en-US bicyclists alike use more of what seems to be en-US missing in large amounts these days comen-US -en-US mon sense and courtesy?en-US As it stands, the law is give bicyclists three en-US feet of clearance. That means stay three feet en-US off of the bicycle lane, not drive next to or en-US on the line. Give more than three feet when en-US driving highway speeds.en-USDemocratic socialism en-USoften misunderstooden-USA democratic socialist is not Marxist en-US socialist or communist.en-US A democratic socialist is one who seeks to en-US restrain the self-destructive excess of capien-US -en-US talism and channel the government's use of en-US our tax money into creating opportunities en-US for everyone.en-US Democratic socialists believe that the en-US economy and society should be run demoen-US -en-US cratically, to meet public needs not to make en-US profits for a few.en-US If you're tired of the rich getting richer, en-US consider socialism.en-US13 State Constitution en-US amendmentsen-USThe first two times I saw the amendments en-US published in a local newspaper, I read en-US through the article twice once increduen-US-en-US lously, the second more studiously and took en-US notes to try to understand what was being en-US proposed to no avail. There is no underen-US -en-US standing or reasoning behind these proposen-US -en-US als presented as they are, other than to conen-US -en-US fuse, obfuscate, and trick voters into voting en-US for some things / rules no one wants, and no en-US legislator wants to be blamed for. This is an en-US example of government at its worst.en-US I STRONGLY urge every voter to vote en-US NO on all 13 items. None of these need to en-US be elevated to the level of incorporation into en-US the states constitution, but should be en-US addressed individually by the legislature, en-US where each elected official must take a puben-US -en-US lic stand for or against each item. Vote NO en-US to the process which only serves to benefit, en-US via power and/or money, to a few, and takes en-US rights / power away from the people of the en-US state of Florida.

But Ive received thousands of en-US replies from car buyers thanking me for en-US taking a stand against the Unfair and en-US Deceptive Trade Practice of dealer fees. I en-US thought that Id give it another try.en-US SUBJECT: ELIMINATE THE DEALER en-US FEEen-US Dear Fellow Florida Car Dealer,en-US I started in the retail auto business in en-US 1968, about 50 years ago, and I have seen a en-US lot of changes in the way we dealers sell cars en-US and the expectations of our customers. My en-US remarks in this column are made sincerely en-US and with a positive intent toward you and en-US your customers. Im not trying to tell you en-US how to run your business; Im suggesting a en-US change that will reward both you and your en-US customers.en-US Every car dealer in Florida (except me) en-US adds charges to the price of the cars he sells, en-US variously referred to as a dealer fee, en-US documentary fee, dealer prep fee, en-US electronic filing fee, notary fee, closing fee, en-US tag agency fee, e-filing fee, etc. This extra en-US charge is printed on your buyers orders and en-US is programmed into your computers. It is en-US regulated in many states including Califoren-US -en-US nia. You charge this fee to every customer en-US and it ranges from a few hundred dollars to en-US several thousand. Florida law requires that en-US you disclose in writing on the buyers order en-US that this charge represents en-US profit to the dealer. en-US Florida law also requires en-US that you include this fee in en-US all advertised prices. You en-US dont usually do this, and en-US you get around the law by en-US limiting the number of en-US advertised vehicles (as few en-US as one). You also disclose en-US only in the fine print that en-US there is a dealer fee, but en-US dont include in the price. You dont even en-US disclose the amount of the fee. You usually en-US have multiple dealer fees by different en-US names.en-US The argument that I hear from most car en-US dealers when I raise this issue is that the en-US dealer fee is fully disclosed to the buyer on en-US his buyers order. But, most car buyers are en-US totally unaware that they are paying this. en-US Who reads all the voluminous paperwork en-US associated with buying a car? The few who en-US notice it assume it is an official fee like en-US state sales tax or license and registration fee. en-US Those few astute buyers who do question en-US the fee are told that your dealership must en-US charge this fee on very car which is not en-US true. These astute buyers are also told that en-US all other car dealers charge similar fees. en-US This is almost true, but, as you know, my en-US dealership does not.en-US The reason you charge this fee is simply en-US to increase the price of the car and your en-US profit in such a manner that it is not en-US noticed by your customer. This is just plain en-US wrong. Dealers will admit this to me in en-US private conversations and some will admit en-US that they have considered eliminating the en-US fee as I have but are afraid of the drastic en-US effect to their bottom line. By being able to en-US count on an extra $999 in profit that the en-US customer is not aware of or believes is an en-US official fee, you can quote a price below en-US cost and end up making a profit. Or, if the en-US price you quote the customer does pay you en-US a nice profit, you can increase that by en-US several hundred dollars.en-US This extra, unseen profit is even better en-US for you because you dont pay your en-US salesmen a commission on it. Thats being en-US unfair to your employees as well as your en-US customers. When the rare, astute buyer en-US objects to the dealer fee, the right thing to en-US do would be to decrease the quoted price of en-US the car by the amount of the dealer fee. This en-US would have the same net effect of removing en-US it. The salesman wont permit this because en-US he will lose his commission (typically 25 en-US percent) on the decrease in his commisen-US -en-US sionable gross profit.en-US If you dont know me, I should tell you en-US that I dont profess to be some holier than en-US thou car dealer who was always perfect. en-US Although, I never did anything illegal, e Brooklyn Kid is a dramatic story of events which lead a boy to manhood, only to reach not a crossroad, but four crossroads. He could only choose one to follow. Aer reading these interesting adventures, which road will you choose? Domenick Scarlato, a second-generation Italian-American, was born and raised in the slums of Brooklyn. He was expelled from high school and joined the U.S. Navy at 16 years old. He served as a Frogman as part of the Underwater Demolition Team during WWII. Domenick worked as a Welder in the Brooklyn Navy Yard and during that time he went to evening school. While raising ve daughters, he completed his H.S. diploma and went on to receive his B.S., M.A., and Doctorate from New York University. Before his retirement, he was a high school teacher, an administrator, and an adjunct professor for New York University at New Paltz. e Brooklyn Kid Purchase on Amazon Price $6.99 r ff nt b btr f rr n20126-7rnr nr nr r f t r fnt bb rnf t rr r r THE PATIENT AND ANY OTHER PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT HAS A RIGHT TO REFUSE TO PAY, CANCEL PAYMENT, OR BE REIMBURSED FOR PAYMENT FOR ANY OTHER SERVICE, EXAMINATION, OR TREATMENT THAT IS PERFORMED AS A RESULT OF AND WITHIN 72 HOURS OF RESPONDING TO THE ADVERTISEMENT FOR THE FREE, DISCOUNTED FEE, OR REDUCED FEE SERVICE, EXAMINATION OR TREATMENT. rr ntf t (D5110, D5120) (D7140) Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers: ON CARS en-USEARL STEWART See en-US en-US EARLen-US page 9

PORT ST. LUCIE772-618-2336 when I look at some of my advertising and en-USsales tactics 20+ years ago and more, I am en-US not always proud. But, I have evolved as my en-US customers have evolved. My customers en-US expectations, level of education, and en-US sophistication are much higher today. Your en-US customers are no different. As I began treaten-US -en-US ing my customers, and employees, better I en-US discovered that they began treating me en-US better. Yes, I used to charge a dealer fee en-US ($495), and when I stopped charging it en-US many years ago, it was scary. But I did it en-US because I could no longer, in good conen-US -en-US science, mislead my customers. Just because en-US everybody else was doing the same thing en-US did not make it right.en-US Now here is the good news. My profit per en-US car did drop by about the amount of the en-US dealer fee when I stopped charging it. But, en-US when my customers realized that I was now en-US giving them a fair shake and quoting the en-US complete out-the-door price with no en-US surprises the word spread. My volume en-US began to rise rapidly. Sure, I was making a en-US few hundred dollars less per car, but I was en-US selling a lot more cars! I was, and am, en-US selling a lot of your former customers. My en-US bottom line is far better than it was when I en-US was charging a dealer fee. You can do the en-US same!

Lots of people en-US will read this letter to you and learn why en-US they should buy a car from me and not you. en-US And, Im also aware that most dealers who en-US read this will either get angry and ignore it en-US or not have the courage to follow my lead. en-US But maybe you will be the exception.

en-US 10 en-USMen-USany people are surprised when en-US they get their new machine home en-US and someone sends them email en-US with a Word or XL document attached and en-US they cannot open it. en-US Isnt this thing supposed to be able to en-US handle these files already? I often hear.en-US en-US The assumption people make is, if they get en-US a machine with enough horsepower, RAM en-US and hard drive space that it ought to do en-US anything they need it to and, to a degree en-US that is true. But the one thing thats missing en-US is the software (or program) to do the job. en-US Programs that are installed after the en-US operating system is installed (Windows in en-US this article) enhance the system and allow en-US the computer to run at its full potential. en-US What programs we need installed depends en-US on the files that we are trying to open and en-US work with. en-US Many of the files that we work with on en-US the Internet, such as jpg, html and txt files en-US all will open with the built in Windows en-US applications (called apps or programs en-US interchangeably) but other files, such as xls, en-US doc, docx, pdf etc. need programs that en-US specifically handle those kinds of files.en-US en-US The three-letter extension is what identifies en-US to the computer what kind of file it is, what en-US icon to display for it and what program to en-US use to open it. en-US If the program that is required to open a en-US file is not installed on the machine, then en-US the file will be displayed with a generic en-US Windows icon. When you try to open it, en-US the computer will open a screen listing en-US some of the installed applications asking en-US what program you want to use to open it. en-US The computer takes a look at the file, en-US doesnt recognize it so it lists all the en-US programs installed and lets you pick what en-US program to open it with because it doesnt en-US have a clue. en-US Unfortunately, when we see that en-US program list, usually we dont have a clue en-US what to open it with either, for the same en-US reason the computer got stumped: there is en-US no program installed for that type of file. en-US So, that brings us back to the beginning en-US with the question of what programs does a en-US typical computer need installed, on top of en-US Windows, in order to be able to handle en-US most of the file formats that everyone else en-US in the world is using? en-US Why is it that some model machine can en-US already handle certain files and some en-US machines (same model) cannot? And, en-US when you buy a computer, what should en-US you look for as far as bundled software en-US goes? en-US Lets take the last question first and talk en-US about bundled software. Some computer en-US manufacturers have made deals with en-US software vendors to bundle their en-US software with every computer they sell. en-US They, of course, get some sort of commisen-US -en-US sion for including the software in with the en-US price of the machine and, often, its the en-US bundling agreement that has brought the en-US price of the computer so low, but where en-US things get tricky is every computer en-US manufacturer has a different bundling en-US agreement (or even none at all) so every en-US computer comes with different software en-US loaded on top of Windows. en-US What that means is one computer en-US bought from one manufacturer will usually en-US have different software installed than what en-US may be installed in another computer of en-US the same hardware specs (horsepower) en-US from another manufacturer. en-US OK, so youve decided to get a new en-US computer. What bundled software should en-US you look for (above and beyond Windows) en-US that will allow you to do some of the more en-US common tasks without getting the dreaded en-US unknown file type message? en-US Well, the most common bundle that en-US ought to be installed is some level of office en-US suite. An office suite, (such as MS Office, en-US or Open Office), is a package of software to en-US handle Word processing, spreadsheets, en-US databases, etc.; a must-have for productivien-US -en-US ty or if you want to open the common file en-US types like .doc and .xls. en-US For things such as .pdf files (Adobe en-US portable document format) the Acrobat en-US reader can be installed. Adobe Reader and en-US Open Office are free and can sometimes be en-US found bundled with other software or en-US easily downloaded from the Internet. But en-US that is the subject of another column en-US altogether.en-US Sean McCarthy can be reached at en-US 888-752-9049 or en-US help@ComputeThisOnen-US-en-US line.comen-US (no hyphens). 150 SW Chamber Court, Ste 101, Port St. Lucie, FL 34986 optimalcarepeds.com (772)301-0123Accepting New Patients Flu Shots AvailableYour child deserves Optimal Care!Monique Mondesir, MDBoard Certied Pediatrician Were Here Day and NightFULL CIRCLE SENIOR CARE 'Why cant I open this en-USattachment?'

en-US 12 en-USWen-USith cooler temperatures (hopefulen-US -en-US ly soon) and the fall season just en-US around the corner, many of us en-US want to start introducing color back into en-US our yards. A popular variety that is now en-US widely available at most garden centers is en-US Geraniums. Annual Geraniums are very en-US popular for their wide range of brilliant, en-US colorful flowers plus their foliage is also en-US very attractive. en-US The types and varieties of these colorful en-US plants vary widely from cultivars that grow en-US six inches high to some that grow to be en-US several feet tall. Geraniums need a bright en-US location with at least a couple of hours of en-US direct sun in order to thrive. These en-US wonderful plants also need to be planted in en-US well-drained soil otherwise the plants will en-US be prone to fungus infection and disease. en-US After planting your colorful treasures, en-US you will want to water them abundantly the en-US first few days, taking care to be sure they en-US drain between watering. Water regularly en-US thereafter still ensuring the plants drain and en-US the soil to dry out between watering en-US intervals. When you water your plants, try en-US to avoid getting water on the leaves of the en-US plant as this can lead to possible disease en-US problems. Do not plant geraniums where en-US they will receive their water from a en-US sprinkler system. en-US Geraniums are heavy feeders and if not en-US fertilized properly, their leaves may yellow en-US and drop. There are several options you can en-US use for fertilizer such as a slow release fertilen-US-en-US izer or a water-soluble fertilizer. The slow en-US release fertilizer will need less intervention en-US on your part as some products such as en-US Osmocote and Dynamite feed for as long as en-US six months. Water-soluble fertilizers such as en-US Miracle Gro provide a more immediate fix en-US but will require more frequent feedings en-US about every two to three weeks. The en-US water-soluble feeding solutions are quite en-US safe and there is little chance of burning en-US your plants. en-US There are a couple of things you can do en-US to prolong how many flowers your plants en-US will produce. Probably the single most en-US important solution is to pinch the spent en-US flowers off the stems on a regular basis. en-US This will ensure a season beautiful color. en-US Pinching also has the advantage of helping en-US to produce well-branched and full plants. A en-US good rule of thumb when choosing your en-US treasures is to pick plants that not only have en-US abundant flowers but that have lots of tight en-US buds also. Look for dark green foliage with en-US not a lot of yellow leaves or yellowing at the en-US tips of the leaves.en-US Todays garden tip: If you are growing en-US Crotons in a container inside your home, en-US yellowing, dropping leaves can often be a en-US problem. To avoid or reverse this problem, en-US there are several things that can help. First en-US of all, you should try to keep your plants at en-US a fairly constant temperature. These en-US tropical plants also enjoy a humid, moist en-US climate so misting the plant will help raise en-US the humidity levels around the leaves for en-US optimal growth. Water your plants on a en-US regular basis with tepid water and keep the en-US soil evenly moist. Be sure to provide bright en-US light near a window otherwise the plant en-US may shed leaves if the area is too dark. Also en-US be sure to fertilize once a month with a en-US water-soluble fertilizer. With a little care en-US and TLC, your colorful crotons will thrive en-US for many years to come and will add a en-US delicate tropical fare to your dcor. en-US Joe Zelenak has more than 30 years en-US experience in gardening and landscape.

J en-USust for the record, I dont really care, but en-US I love eggs and I think you should, too. en-US The chicken was probably domesticaten-US -en-US ed for its eggs from a jungle fowl around en-US 3200 BC according to Indian history. en-US Egyptian and Chinese records indicate fowl en-US were laying eggs for man in 1400 BC, and en-US Europe has had domesticated hens since en-US 600 BC. I find this interesting because the en-US jungle fowl was not raised for meat, but for en-US their eggs, creating one of our first sustainen-US -en-US able food sources. en-US Eggs are such an amazing food source en-US and often times misunderstood. Let me try en-US to clear up a few facts. Eggs contain the en-US highest quality of protein you can buy. The en-US protein from eggs has an almost perfect mix en-US of essential amino acid for humans to build en-US tissue. It is compared to the nutrition of en-US mothers milk.en-US Egg yolks are one of the few foods that en-US contain natural vitamin D. Egg whites and en-US egg yolks contain 3 grams of protein each. en-US One egg white contains 15 calories and one en-US egg yolk has 60 calories. en-US New clinical studies show dietary en-US cholesterol found in eggs has a modest en-US effect on blood cholesterol. The 2015-2020 en-US Dietary Guidelines have removed the 300 en-US mg dietary cholesterol limit, referencing the en-US fact all available evidence suggests there is en-US no relationship between consumption of en-US dietary cholesterol and levels of blood en-US cholesterol. en-US If you want to keep calories down, eat egg en-US whites.en-US Generally brown eggs are more expensive en-US than white eggs, but that is not an indicaen-US -en-US tion of quality. Chickens that lay brown en-US eggs are bigger than chickens that lay white en-US eggs. It costs more to feed these chickens, en-US resulting in a more expensive egg. en-US Egg cartons will advertise the type of eggs en-US you are buying, so lets look at some of the en-US hype. en-US Since 1950, the FDA has required that all en-US eggs are hormone free. en-US Cage free means a chicken has 120 square en-US inches to move about, but is still indoors en-US with not much room. Free range means en-US chickens have the ability to go outdoors and en-US come in at night, but often times not all en-US chickens will roam outside. en-US Pasture-raised hens will feed outdoors in en-US pastures, consuming a more nutrient-dense en-US diet with an increase in micronutrient en-US values. Certain antioxidant carotenoids like en-US lutein and beta-carotene in yolks can be up en-US to 100 times higher. en-US I personally believe the type of feed en-US chickens eat will affect the taste of eggs. My en-US suggestion is to try different eggs to make a en-US plain omelet and compare tastes. en-US Now here are some fun facts. Chickens en-US have earlobes, and if the color is white, the en-US eggs will be white. If the earlobes are red or en-US brown, the eggs will be brown. en-US All eggs are not the same size in your egg en-US carton either. Rather than requiring a en-US specific size and weight for individual en-US eggs, the USDA has guidelines for egg en-US weights per dozen. en-US You can tell if an egg is cooked in the en-US shell by spinning it. A cooked egg will en-US spin like a top and raw eggs will not. en-US The US produces 75 billion eggs a en-US year, which is 10 percent of the worlds en-US supply. So now youre an expert on en-US eggs. en-US Oh, by the way, to cook hard boiled en-US eggs, place eggs in a one quart pot, en-US cover with water, bring to a boil and en-US take off the heat. Let the eggs cool. en-US Perfect every time! en-US Try this egg recipe that is great en-US tasting and nutritious.en-USEGGS FRITTATAen-USYield: 6 servings en-US en-US Ingredientsen-US 8 large eggs, beaten en-US 1 ounce Parmesan cheese, grated en-US 1/2 teaspoon black pepper en-US Pinch salt en-US 1 teaspoon butter and 1 teaspoon olive oilen-US 1/4-cup half and halfen-US 1/2-cup chopped red pepperen-US 1/2-cup chopped tomato en-US 1/2-cup chopped red onionsen-US 1/2-cup chopped country ham en-US en-US Directions en-US Preheat oven to bake setting. en-US In medium size bowl, using a fork, blend en-US milk and eggs together, add Parmesan, en-US pepper, tomato, ham and salt.
