have resided on Hyline' Drive in
Jensen Beach, an area that's always
been prone to flooding. To protect

their home, they installed a retaining

Ms. DeStafney pleaded with Martin
County Commissioners Sept. 2 to
bring her neighbors relief.
"Please help us, something needs
to be done down in that area," she
said. "I am experiencing property
damage to my home."
Ms. DeStafney attributed her flood-
ing problems to county work crews

that have been keeping the water I
level higher in Fishers Pond during
recent years.
"Please take a look at the true'level ,
where the pond should be," she said.
"We have a sinkhole in our backyard,
and we are losing our screened in I
patio and our pool deck. Eventually
the pool's going to go as well."
County Engineering Director Don
Donaldson said managing the water
flow in Jensen Beach is a complicated
affair, especiallywhen the Savannas, a
natural water-flow area similar to the

Everglades, is full. In the past, the
county has pumped water directly
into the6Savannas, but federal restric-
tions now allow it on an emergency
basis only. Officials keep close tabs on
the water levels in area retention
ponds in order to know where to
pump excess water.

Another resident of the
road, Anthony Weisbecker,
also asked for the commis-
sion's help to solve the reoc-
curring flooding of his home.
"We have to have some
answers," he said. "As it is right
now, the water is way above
level, and the pump currently
is just not carrying the load.
With these pending storms,
we're going to be in trouble." -
Mr. Donalds6n explained
that a larger, 10-inch pump
had failed during the rains
and was immediately
replaced with a smaller one
while itwas being repaired.
Unlike neighboring St.
Lucie County, Martin Courity
was not declared a federal dis-
aster area because of the
storm, but Commissioner
Michael DiTerlizzi still sug-
gested county homeowners
affected by' flooding check

with the Federal Emergency
Management Agency about
grant programs for elevation
modifications to homes.
Mr. Donaldson, in turn,
explained that homeowners
must have flood insurance
and have filed three prior
flood claims before becoming
eligible for a matching FEMA
grant to raise their homes.
Commission Chairman
Doug Smruth said he under-
,stood the trust~anon of resi-
dents and that county, staff-
was working hard on solu-
tions for the residents of the'
flood-prone area.
Not all of them may be sat-
isfactory to everyone," he
said. "As hard as it is for us to
get our hands around this,
there are no good fixes. We're
going to come up with a series
of different options for the
residents. Some of it may
include buying the homes,
and some may be elevating
the homes."
South Martin County resi-
dents of the Poinciana Gar-
dens development received
more promising news from

commissioners about flood-#
ing in their area. Several of .
them, including Frank Whit- -'
son and Leah Gratton, com-
plained of flooded roadways'.
and inundated septic sys-,
"I have lived in Poinciana
Gardens since 1989,, and we,,.
have had more flooding in dif- .
ferent places than we ever had,,-
before the draining retrofit,
project began in 2002," he-,
said. "The last phase will not-.
be finished until 2017, and we
cannot wait that long.",
Both Commissioner Sarah
Heard and Mr. Donaldson..
assured the Poinciana Gar-,:.
dens residents that their par-
ticular floodirig problem had
been resolved.
"In the Mariner Sands, they:
had put a fish grate, that
caused a four-foot rise that
affected Sea Branch, Heritage
Ridge and Poinciana Gar-.
dens," Mr. Donaldson said.
"So that back flow was signifi-
cant, but will not happen
again because we removed
the fish grate that they had
put over an 84-inch culvert."

The oldest names for gem-
stones can be traced back to
Oriental languages, to Greek
and to Latin. Greek names
especially have left their
stamp. nftMod,.ogwn,
nomenclature. The meaning
.of old names is not always
certain, especially where the
first meaning of the word has
been changed: Also, in
antiquity, totally different
stones were given the same
name simply because they
may have had the same
color. Original names
referred to special character-
istics of the stones, such as
color (for instance "phrase"
for its green color), their
place of discovery ("agate"
for a river in Sicily)1 or myste-
rious powers ("amethyst"
Was thought to protect

mineral names, which were
later also used to name gem-
stones, have their origin in
the .miners' language of the
Middle Ages.. Nomenclature
has been viewed scientifical-
ly only since the beginning of
the modern age. Because of
the discovery of many hither-
to unknown minerals, new
names had to be found. A
principle for naming new
minerals and gemstones was
established Which i1 Siill
adhered to today. A new
name is devised to refer to
some special characteristic

name. Through such name-
giving, not only experts are
honored but also patrons or
others who may or may not

Car dealers' dirty

little secret

Earl Stewart is the owner
and general manager ofEarn
Stewart Toyota in North -

is located at 1215 N. Federal

TA en the Palm
Beach Post broke
the news of my
lawsuit against Ed Morse
Honda a little over a week
ago (a very small article
buried in the metro report),
the reporter who wrote the
story used the phrase "dirty
little secret" to describe the
dealer fee.
That reporter's phrase
stuckwith me, because she
hit it right on the head
about the dealer fee. The
fact that it's a secret is what
makes it so effective for
dealers and dangerous for
car buyers.
In fact, if it wasn't a secret
it would be totally useless to
dealers. This is why, when
the FADA, with their
lobbyists and politicians,
approach me to discuss a
compromise law that will
give "complete disclosure"
to the car buyer of the
dealer fee, I know they can't
be sincere. Think about it.
Car dealers admit the
dealer fee is pure profit
(they also refer to it as
recapture of costs, but that
is synonymous with profit).
All the rest of the dealers
profit is included in the
price he quotes you on the
Common sense and
accounting 101 says that
businesses should include
all of their costs/profits in
the price of their product or
What reason can there
be for a car dealer electing
to remove a portion of his
profit from the price he


quotes you on a car,
renaming it "dealer fee" (or
one of at least 22 other
nebulous names, according,
to the Florida Senate
Investigation of the Dealer
Fee) and then adding that
profit back in when you sign
your paperwork upon the
delivery of your car?
I I submit there can be only
one answer to that ques-
tion. That answer is, the car
dealer wants you to think
that the price he quoted you
includes all of his profit and
is the complete out-the-
door price of the car,
When I debate the dealer
fee with car dealers, I often
say that if they can satisfac-
torily answer that one
question, I will drop my
opposition to the dealer fee.
So far, I've found no one
who can satisfactorily
answer that question
without admitting the
dealer fee is an unfair and
deceptive trade practice.
Since the dealer fee could
not exist if it were not a
"dirty little secret," you have

The Viewpoint page is the first one I turn to; first, to look
at Jim Petrone's cartoon, then the lively Rants & Raves.
As these letters have decreased, I wondered, 'Did that
many people decide not to submit any comments?" I like
this section because it is one of the few places left where
"We the People" can be heard, about primarily "Home-
town" things that either bother us or help us.
It is sad that our writings have to be anonymous, but
with all the nuts and easily offended out there, here we
can air our true feelings without concern of reprisal.
Although, I must say, with certain factions known for
violence, we even have careful there.j
Somehow, our beloved "Land of thi Free and the Home
ot the Brave" is, bit bh bit,putting itself ina straightjacket
of political correctness. What in the world-kind of coun-
try are we leaving to our next generation with which to
deal? '

Going green isn't always easy

I'm absolutely in step with those who want to "save the
planet." Doing with less of that which is. harmful, is cer-
tainly a worthwhile goal. Those who feel privileged to
pay back for their excesses because they're, important
strikes me very wrong. A truth I have always stood by is
that you lead by example. -.
I'm certainly getting off track in. addressing our going
green dilemma. I really don't want to get into ethanol
which uses food by-products to produce a product which
is less efficient to burn in' our cars. We bought into this
while the "bread basket of the world" is not feeding the
masses, but being used to fill our tanks.
'.-I've gone a long way in describing our dilemma. There
are" now tote bags to carrN out your merchandise. The
theory is that you will save a plastic bag from the dump
that will not bio-degrade. Bag boys at Publix are trained
not to mix some items with others. The watermelon
doesn't go on top of the eggs, etc. the stupidity is that
items must be separated and that.a family of four isn't
going to carry out their $200 order in a tote bag.
My family and I have been employees and involved in
DuPont. They were very involved in plastic from the,
beginning. With the concern of plastic bags and diapers,
there should be no problem in having a bio-degradable
bag that will be dust in, lets say, six months. Lets get ift

New browser offers impressive

Then it comes to
Web browsers,
there have always
. been choices, but there
hasn't really been anything
that has come along in a
while that promised
anything groundbreaking.
For the last decade, we
have always had a choice
between Microsoft's
Internet Explorer (which
comes built in with
Windows) or we could run
a version of Netscape or
There have been other
browsers available, such as
the one that is built into
AOL, or even alternates
such as Opera or Slim
browser. Maybe you are'a
Mac user and use the
Safari browser. The point
is, there have always been
alternatives to Internet
Explorer, but they were
just never really anything
to write home about.
For the most part, I've
been using Firefox as my
primary browser and every
now again I run into a site
that has some ActiveX
control or something that
won't run right, so I open
Internet Explorer and
browse the page with that
and life is good. It's not
exciting, but it's good. I get
to surf the Web without
many issues. Every now
and again my browser
crashes and I have to
restart it. But that's no big


deal to me, considering
how hard we push things
these days. It's just the way
things are.
Until now, that is.
A couple of days ago I
started reading comments
about Google's new
browser called Chrome. I
didn't think too much
about it until it was
released and I started
seeing a ton of positive
comments and thought I
ought to check it out. After
running it now for a few
days, I have to-admit I am
The folks at Google (the
same people who brought
us Picasa, Google Earth
and the ever-popular
search engine) have
redefined Web browsing
and have done it in a way
that makes it fast, secure
and with a couple new
features that I hadn't
thought of.
Like Google's other
products, Chrome is free
to download and use and
free of any spyware or
other nastiness. If you're
interested in trying it,
point your browser to

and download a copy to
your desktop. After the
download is complete,
double click the down-
loaded file and let it :
install. Tell it to go ahead
and import all of your
favorites and preferences
and then let it run.
The first thing that you
will see is Chrome's "most
visited" page, which (after
using the browser for a
while) will fill up with nine
of your most frequently
visited Web pages instead
of just one "start page" like,
most other browsers.
The second thing that
you may notice is the tabs
are at the very top of the
browser window instead of
at the top of the Web page.
What this means is that
each tab you open also has
its own address bar, and
each page that is opened
in each tab is essentially
running in its own little
Now, this part is a little
technical, sp bear with me,
as it has to do with each
tab being isolated. In all
the other browsers, we
have one browser with
each tab sharing the
browser's resources. That
means that as you open
and close tabs, you use
more resources, making
the browser slower and
less stable as time goes on.
With Chrome, each tab
runs in its own environ-


ment without bothering
the other tabs, meaning
the browser stays fast and
stable no matter how
many tabs you open or
close. Yes, they really did a
fine job with this one.
Another feature that I
like (again on a technical
level) is that it has its own
task manager built in. This;
means geeks like me will
be able to see what is
going on in the back-
ground with Chrome and
see what tab is using what.
That makes troubleshoot-
ing problem Web sites just
a little bit easier, and
sometimes that is all it
Yet another feature that
is new to the world of
browsers is Chrome's
incognito mode.
Incognito mode opens a
window with no browser
history, no search history
and no cookies collected.
This can be useful on
shared machines for sure.
If you spend any
amount of time surfing the
Web, I invite you to
download Google's new
browser. Try it out for a bit
and then send me an e-
mail. Tell me what you
think and I'll share your
comments here.

election would jump on the
"dealer fee bandwagon."
Making it illegal to quote a
price on a car without
including all of your profit in
that price would save
consumers of Florida
hundreds of millions of
dollars. You would also think
that a newspaper or TV
station would jump all over
this. What a story.
We have more than 1,000
car dealerships in Florida.
These are relatively large
businesses employing-tens
of thousands of Floridians
and paying millions in taxes.
The average price of anew
car now is more than
$25,000. Florida sales tax on
one average car is t1,500. Car
dealers are one of the largest
advertisers in the state,
spending hundreds of
millions annuallywith
newspapers, TV and radio.
Car dealers are very well
organized. Virtually every
larger dealership and most
smaller ones are members of
the Florida Automobile
Dealers Association, FADA,
headquartered in Tallahas-
see. You might wonder why.
the FADAwould locate its
headquarters in Tallahassee
and not Orlando, which is
centrally located. That's
because FADA's main
function is to lobby Florida's
Legislature. The FADA is a
political lobbying group that
gives strong financial
support to all senators and
legislators who "play ball"
with FADA.
Are you beginning to get
the picture? I've been told
"off therecord"by politicians
that they will not go against
the FADA because their
support is too important to
their re-election and because
without their support, you,
cannot get a bill passed into
I've been told by reporters
who tried to run stories I
about the "dirty little secret"
of the dealer fee that their
editors"killed the story."
You have heard or read the
homily, "money is the
mother's milk ofpoidcs"

and this is true. Well,
advertising revenue is the
mother's milk of the media.
Newspapers are suffering
especially, losing ad revenue
to the Internet and other
media. They cannot afford to
offend car dealers in their
editorial or news depart-
ments because car dealers
ate either the largest or the
second largest advertiser in
most newspapers.
Just as I won't paint all car
dealers with the same brush,
I won't paint all of the media
that way, either. Hometown
News has run my weekly
column for more than two
years. I know that it has cost
them some advertising from
car dealers, but publisher
Steve Erlanger has the
courage of his convictions.
He is ajournalist.with the
highest ethical standards for
both his editorial and news
Radio station SeaviewAM
960 airs my weekly talk show
every Saturday morning
between 9 and 10. This is a
live call-in talk showwhere I
expose unethical and illegal
activities of some car dealers.
For a long time, no car dealer
would advertise on Seaview
AM 960, but the station has
gained such good ratings
recently that a lot of car
dealers are now advertising
with them, in spite of my talk
I congratulate Chet Tart,
SeaviewAM 960 general
manager for his integrity and
high journalistic standards,
just as I do Steve Erlanger.
My lawsuit against
Morse Honda is not for
publicity as car dealers have
accused. The court is the
only alternative I have when

coupons. The Burkes used
satiric humor to poke fun at
economists leery to admit
that inflation is running
"We're convinced that
these people (economists) do
not shop," he said. "If they
did, they would know that
there is 6 percent inflation."
Mr. Burke said the cost-cut-
ting'duo had a plan to force
the economic nay-sayers to
view the effects of inflation up
"We've got a plan to send
their housekeepers coupons,
and then when they go out
shopping, 'we'll kidnap

Mahen Sanghrajka, presi-
dent of Stuart-based Big Five
Tours & Expeditions, told
side-splitting stories about
his experience- dealing with
the public in' the tourism
industry. While working at a
hotel in Kenya, he was
approached by a woman at 2
a.m. demanding that the
hotel staff remove a man
from her room.
"'Who is he,'" I asked. 'It's
my husband,' she said. 'He's
snoring and I can't sleep.'
Since he's your husband, did-
n't you already know he

snored, I asked. 'Yes, but we
sleep in separate rooms.'"
When told the hotel had no
more available rooms, the
woman insisted on sleeping
in the lobby, but Mr. Sanghra-
jka told'her she wouldn't be
able to sleep with the noise of
the cleaning staff, so she
ended up sleeping in the
Octogenarian Doris
Thurston, who's spent most
of her life in show business,
charmed the crowd with her
jokes about love and mar-
riage, delivered in a flawless
French accent. The first com-
pared marriage to a three-
ring circus.
"First there's the engage-
ment ring," she said. "Then
comes the wedding ring and
then the stiffer-ring."
When she asked her moth-
er for advice about marrying
a non-religious man, it back-
fired on her.
"I was dating a man who
wasn't very religious and was
concerned because he didn't
believe in Hell," she said. "My
mother told me, just marry
him he'll find out."
Finally, Barbara Taylor
entertained the group with
her tale of being a"collector."
"I'm a saver," she said. "I
save pens, pencils, and my
freezer is loaded with batter-
ies. Only problem is, I don't
have anything that uses bat-
She said it didn't pay to get
rid of things, such as coffee
cans, because there would

always be a use for them.
"They're great," said. "I had
them all stored in a closet.
One day, I opened the door,
and to my surprise, out came
tumbling 75 coffee cans. I
thought to myself, 'Why do I
save these?"'
The one thing she couldn't
save, she said, was "money."

Aloha from the Hawaiian Islands

Editor's note: This is the
first part of a series on the
islands of Hawaii.
Have traveled extensively
in my lifetime, but one of
the places on my own
personal wish list was to visit
the islands of Hawaii.
Well, my wish came true
recently when I had the
opportunity to go to a travel

industry conference held on
the island of Maui. Since the
conference was going to only
take four days, I decided on
adding two additional
islands to my itinerary. After
all, this was on my list of
places to visit, not to
mention traveling almost
5,000 miles to get there. I
wanted to make the most of
My mother accompanied
me (she has been my travel
companion for several years)
and we had a very busy but
wonderful trip.
One thing that strikes me
is that Hawaii has a lot of
very interesting history. Prior
to my visit, I looked into not
only the properties that I
would be visiting, but the
culture and how these
islands came to be.
It is quite a story; from
* underwater volcanos that
formed their islands to the
gods that protected them to
the monarchy throughout
the years.

In our business, we send
many of our clients to exotic
places such as Hawaii. It's
nice to get a feel for it
yourself. So in six days I will
visit three of Hawaii's
beautiful islands with one
day of travel on each end. I
was very excited to see as
much as I could with the
time I had.
My first stop was Kona
(also known as Kailua-Kona)
located on the leeward side
of the Big Island of Hawaii
the biggest and youngest of
the Hawaiian Islands.
Kona was once considered
the capital during the time of
King Kimehameha. There
are f6ur major hotels in
Kona: the King Kamehame-
ha, Royal Kona Resort,
Outrigger Keahu Beach, and
the Sheraton Keauhou Bay
Resort & Spa, as well as
many smaller hotels,
condominium resorts and
vacation homes.
We took a taxi to our
chosen hotel, the beautiful
Sheraton, which was about
30 minutes away. We were
fortunate enough to have

"Hello Muh Darling! How Can I Help Ya?"

In her. boisterous Brooklyn accent, this is what you'll hear
from owner, Doreen Casessa, as you walk in to Royal
Treatment Salon. Once in, you can't help but notice the
friendly atmosphere.
It's apparent that Doreen considers her customers and staff
one big extension of her own family by the way she greets
everyone and makes sure they feel welcome and comfortable
(her skill at remembering names, dates and other details
" doesn't hurt either).
U Five \ ears .ago, Doreen's daughter, lackie, had just earned her
license as a nal technician and was training to become a hair
srylist. Having been in the industry herself
for 16 years, Doreen thought it would be perfect timing to
start her own hair salon with Jackie, so she opened Royal
Treatment Salon in Cedar Pointe Plaza.
Bringing in a few other hair stylists and nail technicians,
Doreen and Jackie started with lour styling and three nail
stations. Within two years, they expanded by taking over
an adjacent unit and now have a staff of 13 full-time stylists
and 6 nail technicians with stations positioned throughout
the salon. Doreen's other daughter, Kellv, helps keep things
running smoothly as the SalornCoordinator. .
Doreen attributes the suc-cess of her salon to her passion
for customer service and commitment to training and UL
excellence in her trade.
That commitment has resulted in Royal Treatment being
designated a Signature Salon by Paul Mitchell. Two of her
srvlits. Faith and Krisoffer, have earned the title of Paul
Mitchell Educators based on their level of experience arid
accumulated hours of training.
To maintain her stylists' expertise, Doreen has Paul Mitchel]
representatives provide continuing training sessions on cut
and color techniques every 60 days. "
Royal Treatment offers its customers an extensive list of
services including: cut, color, perms, manicures, pedicures *
and acrylic nails. They also have stlsts on staff certified to
"provide hair and evelash extensions (Jenn) and Japanese
hair relaxing IM.JI.. Jenn is also certified to pffer Bio Ionic
hair straightening.
lackie, Albert, Erica, Kris, Faith, Beth, Ro, Jenn, M.J.,
Marlene, Lee and Tony are the Stylists and Jennifer, Li,
Steph, Sheila, Brenda and Lisa are the Nail Technicians.
And Jlif does a great job as the stN list assistant.
Royal Treatment welcomes men, women and children and
provides service by appointment.

song history of the island. He
talked (sang) of Hawaii
being the birthplace of King
Kamehameha the great, and
that the island is home to 11
of the earth's 13 climate
zones, from the lush tropical
rainforest to arid deserts to
Mauna Kea's snow-capped
mountaintop. He finished
by singing "Welcome to our
island" in Hawaiian and in
English. What a way to start
off our trip.
The Sheraton Keauhou
Bay Resort is set atop lava
cliffs facing the ocean. Our
oceanfront room included a
lanai (Hawaiian for porch or
balcony). The hotel's "sweet
sleeper" bed could not have
a better name, since it was
11 p.m. in Kona and 5 a.m.
back in Florida
Our first full day started off
with a few cups of the world-
renowned Kona coffee. After
the first cup, I knew I had to
find some room in my bags
for quite a lot of this to come
home with me.
My first order of business
was to check out this

three pools, one of which
was in the lobby and had a
waterfall that fell from the
fifth floor, another had a
swim-up bar and the last
had a water slide.
This lush, 22-acre tropical
setting, with dozens of
singing birds, definitely says
that you have arrived in
We took the trolley that
stopped at the hotel for
some sightseeing and
shopping (of course).
Most of the beaches had
black sand and large
mounds of lava rock.,
There was a constant haze
around the island; this was
because the volcano Kiluaea
was very active and spewing
ash into the air.
We finished up the day by
watching the sun set and
seeing the manta rays feed
in the waters below the cliffs,
glowing in the moonlight.
Tomorrow we fly to Maui
for our four-day tour of '
hotels and attractions. I will
cover this experience in my

Lisa Loeb comes to the Lyric

By Shelley Koppel
Entertainment writer
Lisa Loeb's song "Stay (I
Missed You)" hit the top of
the charts in i994, the first
time an artist without a
record label had accom-
plished that feat.
Her friend and neighbor,
Ethan Hawke, played it for
Ben Stiller, the director of
the film "Reality Bites." It
became part of the
soundtrack, and some
thought that was the
beginning of Ms. Loeb's
career, but the
singer/songwriter had
been plying her craft for
someyears, performing as
a student at/Brown
University and then in
clubs in NewYork and Los
Angeles. :.
The Gramm'y-nominat-
edperformer brings her
guitar to the Lyric Theatre
on Sept. 19; she spoke by
phone from New York
about how her art has
"I had a band in college
with my freshman room-
mate, Liz Mitchell," she
said. "We made a chil-
dren's album.'Catch the
Moon.' After college, we .
moved to New York; we
had started playing and
had a following and it felt
like a good move.
"When we went our
separate ways, I played
with bands in a lot of
clubs and at festivals. I
met Ethan Hawke through

friends from Brown; a
group of actors, play-
wrights and musicians
hung out in New York. He
asked for a copy of 'Stay'
and submitted it to Ben
Stiller. It led to what
seemed like overnight
success, but I still had no
record deal. (The success)
was a unique situation
and very exciting.".
Ms. Loeb has since
recorded several CDs,
including her major label
debut, "Tails," and its
follow-up, the Grammy-
nominated "Firecracker."
She has also appeared
on television, in her
shows, "No. 1 Single" for E!
Entertainment and
"Dweezil and Lisa," for the
Food Network.
The latter featured her
then-boyfriend Dweezil '
She has just released
"Purple Tape" on her own
label; it was'the tape she
used in the very beginning
of her career to try to
interest record executives.
In addition to the
original tracks, it has
some live performances
and interviews about
what it was like in the
easily '90s in New York,
which she finds younger
artists are interested in.
She has not abandoned
children's records, and her
current release "Camp
Lisa," is a reflection of
how much fun she had in

Check conditions for best bites

W nd, rain, more
wind and rain; the
sky looks like at
any moment something is
going to happen.
The fish know and feed,
prepare for the storm. So
now here is the question: to
fish or stay home and put
up the shutters?
The surf was brown and
great for surfing, but usually
these conditions do not
make it good for fishing..
So why were these surfers
buying black and chrome
bomber long A's, wind
cheaters and cast masters?
Because the tarpon, snook
and big jacks were swim-
ming around their boards,
while in motion. When I
asked how far out this was, I
was told just get them wet,
the fish are on the edge.
Heard a lot about mullet,
not much about whiting,
but plenty about big snook,
big jacks and tarpon feeding
on the mullet, so close you
could watch. One angler
had 21 snook. Another filed
the barbs off the hooks and
had too many tarpon in the
air and then the jacks would

come in and take every-
thing they were casting.


This was the report from
the beach, so the question
became fish or stay home
and put up shutters in case
Ike came? Things have
calmed now and there is
plenty of snook, tarpon and
jacks on the beach, plenty
of bait. And, oh yes, the
water is brown.
The bridges have been
busy fishing with black
drum, snook and plenty of
snapper. Strong tidal ,
movement will have plenty
of big snook waiting for the
tide to bring them dinner.
Big baits, big fish, pins,
mullet or big artificial have
been leading the menu,
The water has calmed so
smaller baits will work;,
shrimp for the snapper and
the drum, and fish up close
to the pilings.

The trout bite is there, it's
just that no one has been
looking. Fish the power
plant area; this is not as
influenced by the inlets.
The water looks dark, but
the salinity level is there, so
fish with dark-color baits
and slow down. Shrimp on a
jig head moving slowly
across the bottom is a sure
Offshore, run to the color
lines and start or run all
your lines down. That
brown water is fresh'and it
floats, so the green blue
water is below and that is
where the fish are.
When you find bait with
your machine, you now
know where the salt water
is, so put your baits down.
There's no need to run to
200 to 300 feet. The fish are
up close, just deep and just
when you think you have it
figured out,'the fish will
change it all.
I would rather be lucky
than skillful.

JENSEN BEACH — Conchy Joe’s restaurant got its second green light to expand on both sides of Indian River Drive here with the Martin County Local Planning Agency’s unanimous recommendation of approval March 5 for its revised major final site plan for its own site and that of the long-shuttered Admiral’s Table. The LPA gave it the first green light last June when it recommended a zoning change from CR-3A Liberal Multiple Family to Limited Commercial on the 2.29-acre parcel at 4,000 Jensen Beach Blvd., which was approved by the County Commission the following month. County Planner Pete Walden provided the LPA a quick snapshot of restaurant owner Fritz Ayres’ plans for both properties, including a requested reduction in the county’s minimum parking requirement. “The Conchy Joe’s restaurant is expanding by about 7,000 square feet,” he said. “The Admiral’s Table is expanding as well.

3 927 NE Jensen Beach Blvd. 772.334.2151Mon. Fri. 10am-5pm Sat. 10am 3pm This One’s A Keeper! I’ve written several articles on which is the better choice, leasing or buying your next car. As a rule of thumb, I recommend buying because it’s less complicated and offers fewer opportunities for car dealers to deceive you. I also issue a special warning to seniors who, because of health issues, may not be able to drive at some point during their lease contract. They, or their *estates, are still obligated to make the remainder of the payments. However, there is another negative on leasing which I was remiss in not mentioning in prior articles, and this applies to all age groups. When you buy a car, you’re building equity ownership in the car you’re driving; leasing is just like renting and you build zero equity. If you buy a new vehicle and finance it for 36 months, you can build equity from 50% of the original cost to has much as 70%. The average new vehicle today costs about $40,000, leaving you with an asset worth from $20,000 to $28,000! Why is this important? According to USA Today, 40% of U.S. adults don’t have enough savings to cover a mere $400 emergency! The median amount of the average American’s savings account is only $4,830. When you buy a home or a car, you’re forced to save. More and more Americans are renting their apartment or homes and leasing their vehicles. The auto manufacturers and auto dealers are focusing almost exclusively on leasing rather than selling today, for good reasons. Car dealers make substantially more money when they lease instead of sell, over $1,000. The likelihood of you repeating with the car dealer and the manufacturer is much higher when you lease vs. buy. Why? You must return the lease car to the car dealer, and the dealer begins soliciting your next lease about 6 months before your current lease expires. If you don’t repeat with that dealer/ manufacturer, there’s a penalty called the “lease disposition fee”, about $350. There’s also the likelihood that you will be charged more for “above normal wear and tear” if you buy or lease a different brand. It’s easy for manufacturers and dealers to lure you into leasing, because almost everybody thinks in terms of monthly payments, not the purchase price. If you feel like you can fit the car into your monthly budget, you don’t care what the purchase price is. That’s why so many people are now caught in the “lease trap”; not just the lease trap but forced to repeat with the same make of car they leased previously. They have no equity for a down payment on a purchase and are penalized if they switch to a different make of vehicle. When you’re caught in the “lease trap”, you’re also precluded from buying a used car. Leasing companies and banks won’t lease used cars. A good, late model used car is a better value than a new one. It retains its value much more than a new care. Many people with limited savings and income should be buying used cars instead of new ones, but cannot if they were lured into the lease trap because of a low monthly payment. If you’re fortunate enough to have a substantial savings or investment account that allows you to make the necessary down payment when you purchase a vehicle, that’s great and this article doesn’t apply to you. Unfortunately, it does apply to many people that are being lured into the leasing trap. *Legal pre-arrangements can be made to protect the lessee’s spouse from liabilityDon’t be trapped into leasing ON CARSEARL STEWART Earl Stewart is the owner and general manager of Earl Stewart Toyota in North Palm Beach.

If you take the strict interpretation of our parking code, it would require 387 spaces. There are 278 spaces provided, which is closer to what a CRA redevelopment project would entail. There’s also a request for alter native compliance for the landscaping because of some minor technicalities.” A representative of the applicant, Lucido & Associates Senior Vice-President Morris Crady, told Board members he’d spent the last several months working with county staff to facilitate the dream of Conchy Joe’s founder Fred Ayres of creating a restaurant campus between the buildings on opposite sides of Indian River Drive. Although he died in 2016, his son Fritz Ayres wants to see his father’s dream come true. “This project is a win in various ways,” Mr. Crady said. “It enhances the historical and cultural value of the area; it provides economic entertainment opportunity; and it provides an environmental value that doesn’t exist today.” He explained that Mr. Ayres plans on highlighting the local cultural value as his father did at their other property, the Dolphin Bar near Indian Riverside Park. While that establishment highlights the contributions and legacy of Frances Langford and her renowned Outrigger Resort to the Jensen Beach area, the new expanded Conchy Joe’s complex will build on its own legacy and relationship to Seymour’s Dine & Dance, which previously occupied the cur rent site of Conchy Joe’s and was rumored to have actually been a prohibition-era speakeasy in the 1930s. The original building east of Indian River Drive will be expanded fur ther north along the waterfront by eliminating some of the existing parking. “We’re extending the chickee restaurant along the waterfront, so all of the parking spaces there are being removed,” Mr. Crady said. “We’re putting in a 30-seat bar that will overlook the river and have a larger venue for entertainment. There’ll be an area where you can get drinks outside and a covered porte-cochre. This is an extension of the chickee that will include a covered walkway into the front of the building.” In addition to the expansion of the existing restaurant, the developer plans to refur bish an existing fishing pier and nearby boat dock on the Indian River for the public and connect them to the restaurant via a river walk. Mr. Crady said those features have already been permitted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Department of Environmental Protection. “We are providing access for public use, so that a patron can pull into a boat space here and use the facility,” he added. On the west side of the road, Mr. Ayres plans on adding a second story to the existing 6,400-square-foot Admiral’s Table building to create a bar overlooking the restaurant, additional restaurant seating and the microbrewery. He plans to call this new restaurant Conchy’s on the Bayou: Brewery and Kitchen and will focus on cuisine ranging from Cajun dishes to Northern Florida fare. In between the two restaurants, his plan calls for significant improvements to Indian River Drive, including the addition of on-street parking. “We are developing a street section that’s going to include parallel parking, pedestrian access, a six-foot sidewalk here [on the east side of Indian River Drive], and a 10-foot multimodal path along this side [western side],” Mr. Crady said, pointing to a map on the overhead. “There’ll be street lighting installed, [and] vegetation installed along the street to control and calm traffic. The staff and the local county commissioners all worked with us to create a streetscape plan that will beautify the area and provide a much safer environment for patrons utilizing the restaurant.” After Mr. Crady concluded his presentation, District 2 Board Member William Flanagan expressed concerns about additional stormwater runoff from the planned parking area on the west side of the roadway and wanted to know how the developer planned on handling that potential contamination. “You’re pretty much doubling the hard surface,” he said. “One of my first thoughts was that’s a lot of potential oil-surface stuff that’s going to come out of the parking lot, and it’ll drain down.” The project engineer of record, Melissa Corbett, come to the podium to address his concern, emphasizing the improvements the restauranteur was making to the current stormwater system on the property. “The balance of the site, particularly Admiral’s Table and Indian River Drive, has no control structures and sheet-flows straight into the river,” she said. “It is a redevelopment project, so there are opportunities in the code that allow us to not meet the strictest letter of the law of the county’s cur rent water quality and attenuation standards. We did not take that route. The development meets all current Martin County water quality standards and attenuation. We have control structures added, so this is an extremely big improvement for the river.” District 3 Board Member Donald Foley III then asked for clarification on the proposed speed limit reduction on the section of Indian River Drive bisecting the proper ties. “I’ve walked along that road and had to cross that road, and it can be quite danger ous,” he said. Ms. Corbett agreed, and described other improvements such as new sidewalks and crosswalks being implemented in addition to the developer’s request to reduce the speed limit from 35 to 30 miles per hour in front of his restaurant. “We’re also adding on-street parking and all of the landscaping, so all of that added together will naturally help slow traffic,” she emphasized. For his part, Chairman James Moir wor ried the on-street parking might cause more problems than it would solve. “It may slow the traffic down, but I’m not sure that it provides a great deal more of pedestrian safety because you’ve created a visual obstruction that pedestrians are likely to come from behind,” he said. “There is a lot of high-speed traffic going through there now, and I’m not sure that it’s necessarily going to slow down.” In response to further questioning from Mr. Flanagan, Ms. Corbett emphasized the new crosswalks would not incorporate speed tables but would have the required signage advising motorists of potential pedestrians crossing the road. District 1 Board Member Cynthia Hall wanted to know about sewer connections, and the engineer of record pointed out another environmental improvement. “Conchy Joe’s is currently hooked up to water and sewer, [but] the Admiral’s Table was not,” she said. “It historically was on a private package plant, but it will be hooked up to both potable water and Martin County Utilities sewer.” Three members of the public encouraged the LPA to recommend approval, including Hyline Drive resident Ryan Welsh, who said he regularly takes visiting family and friends to Conchy Joe’s and is eagerly awaiting the opening of the new microbrewery. “This expansion is only going to make that an even more attractive place to bring visitors,” he said. “I am a fan of microbreweries: They are not just simply bars; they are actually wonderful places to go visit. I regularly drive my wife and my two-year-old to Fort Pierce to go to Pierced Ciderworks or Sailfish [Brewing Company]. They’re family friendly places, and they’re usually great places to take kids. I’m very excited for this to happen.” Board Member Hall agreed. “I’ve lived in Jensen for over 34 years and did go to the Admiral’s Table and actually have fond memories of it,” she said. “I’m also a fan of microbreweries, so I’m very excited about the fact that something like this could come to our little neck of the woods.” The LPA then voted unanimously to recommend approval to the County Commission.

While recently dining at an Outback a total stranger stopped at our table (my daughter, my son and his wife). He noticed my cap with a WWII emblem and told me his father had served in WWII and that he also served in the military. We had a nice conversation. We shook hands and thanked each other for our service. The manager brought the check and informed us that the total stranger had paid $50 torwards our check. I don’t know his name, but I hope he reads this and gets our thank you. It must have been in respect for his dad and all the other Vets who have served in WWII. What a wonder ful man. Thanks again and God bless you and your family.Coronavirus AwarenessLike everyone else, I’ve read items about the coronavirus. And we must be more careful now than usual. This does include coving ones mouth when coughing or sneezing. It’s only good common sense. March 1, 2020, I was in my neighborhood Publix shopping. I came upon a man who was shopping with his son who looked to be about 16. The son was constantly coughing very loudly and sneezing. He did not cover his mouth with his hand or sleeve, didn’t even attempt to. The first thing that came to mind was, of course, the coronavirus. Needless to say, I immediately turned around and went to the other side of the store. This young man was coughing so loudly I could actually hear him on the opposite side of the store. A word to the wise (or otherwise): if you’re ill and have someone else to shop for you, please stay at home. If you absolutely must go out in the public, at least cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. Please.Global Warming WorriesI read and hear from young adults often complaining about global warming and wasting plastic, paper and other toss out stuff. Recently I read that the tubes that are in each toilet paper roll in just one year could fill two Empire State buildings. That got me to thinking about disposable diapers. Can you imagine how many of these are in each landfill in the world. Just them fermenting is probably worse than a volcano or a coal fired plant for global warming. To say nothing of the cost. People over fifty years old actually used recycled diapers. Soft cotton that could be cleaned by a diaper ser vice or in many cases right at home in a clothes washer in hot water and soap. Some of the old ideas were better for the environment than what we are doing today. Have you checked the cost of disposable diapers lately? We had two children and had about twenty diapers for the two of them. They are three years apart. Same diapers for both kids. They didn’t cost as much as one box of disposables. Just so you know I hate plastic bags from the grocery stores. I always ask for paper, only if I forget to bring in my own canvas bags. I also hate plastic bottles. We used to reuse returnable bottles, after they were washed. There are some real positives to doing things the old fashioned way.Marijuana Vs. NicotineFL Speaker of the House Oliva is concerned about high healthcare costs, and the dangers of legalizing Marijuana. Yet he’s the scion of a family that sells cigars. One cigar has as much nicotine as a whole pack of cigarettes. The healthcare costs from smokers and chewers of that long legalized drug, have been, and still are, tremendous. Now the Centers for Disease Control has reported even 2nd hand smoke from burning cigars, cigarettes and pipes also is dangerous and costly. Secondhand smoke includes smoke that has been exhaled, or breathed out, by the person smoking. Separating smokers from nonsmokers, opening windows, or using air filters does not prevent other people from breathing secondhand smoke, which can also infiltrate into other units through hallways and stairwells, and linger in cars, restaurants, etc. In children, secondhand smoke causes ear infections, more frequent and severe asthma attacks, coughing, sneezing, and shortness of breath, and respiratory infections such as bronchitis and pneumonia, and a greater risk for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Breathing secondhand smoke causes harm to nonsmoking adults too, and can result in higher rates of heart disease, stroke, and lung damage. Now “vaping”, which is really inhaling who knows what along with nicotine, is getting children hooked on that very danger ous legal drug. As our Republican leaders still rant and rave about Marijuana. To distract us from their failure to improve everyone’s health, by expanding Medicaid, using money from the taxes we have all already paid to the Federal Government? Over 800,000 Floridians would then be able to see a healthcare provider regularly, rather than being rushed to the Emergency room in a crisis. Re: “Fire Hydrants” My husband and I have lived in Lakewood Park for 18 years and like it just fine without city water and sewer. City water is very costly, smells and taste bad. If you want city water and sewer move back to Hialeah. Leave the Lakewood Park residents alone.Re: Young LadyAs a Young Lady in my early twenties, I had a boss who called me Young Lady. We are both retired but still keep in touch. When I answer the phone or I call him and he answers the phone, his Hello Young Lady brings back a lot of good memories. I don’t care to be called Honey but sometimes Young Lady is definitely called for.

Sewall’s Point Town Manager Michelle Berger told commissioners she first began discussions with Florida Power & Light in early January on the cost for the under-grounding idea that she said had been birthed long before her hiring in October of last year. “It was something that when I first start-ed, we had discussed as an open-ended conversation that didn’t get finalized in the past,” she explained. “Since the new FP&L liaison had come on at the same time, we discussed can we get this information so we can close it out, and she assured me we could get it done pretty quickly.” Ms. Berger had hoped to win residents a 25 percent discount but ultimately discov-ered the per capita income of the Sewall’s Point population and average home price quickly disqualified them. “The best we could do would be to break it up into two segments,” she emphasized. “It’s quite expensive: just over $2 million for North Sewall’s Point and just over $7.5 mil-lion for South Sewall’s Point. This is really a policy decision, something I could do long term. The Town of West Palm has decided to move forward on it over a 30-year peri-od.” Most commissioners immediately balked at the price tag, however. Commissioner Kaija Mayfield admitted she’d been curious about the idea of undergrounding the town’s utilities but now expressed reserva-tions. “I think it sounds like a great idea in the-ory,” she said. “It just seems very expensive, and we have higher priorities at the moment, so I don’t see anything in the near future personally.” Commissioner Vinny Barile has served on the Board since 2012 and admitted the town has unsuccessfully flirted with the idea in the past. “We’ve been through this many times,” he said. “We fought over it, everybody swing-ing over it, and the answer has always been the same: no, we can’t afford it, and that’s the biggest issue. I appreciate the report but in all honesty, with saltwater intrusion and the rising tides and everything else, I wouldn’t be so quick to bury cable.” Commissioner James Campo reminded his fellow commissioners that aesthetics were a primary focus of undergrounding proponents and offered them a less expen-sive solution. “If people think that underground utility is good because of the aesthetics, we’ve got something within our reach,” he said. “We need to get the cable companies to get their cables off of the old wooden poles and have them linked up to the concrete poles. I think that would go a long way to improv-ing the aesthetics without spending $11 million.” Commissioner Campo particularly noted empty wooden power poles such as one “on the corner of Rio Vista and South Sewall’s Point Road” that needed to be removed. Both Ms. Berger and Town Engineer Joe Capra insisted this was much easier said than done and spoke of their efforts to resolve that issue to-date. The former said she would soon “knock on doors” in that same neighborhood but described doing the same in North Sewall’s Point with Town Attorney Glen Torcivia and failing to get at least one property owner’s permission for removal. “We have an area where we have 30-footwide road with no right of way in essence, and that pole does fall on private property,” she said. “I already did North Sewall’s Point and tried to have this conversation. He (Mr. Torcivia] brought cookies and [it] was love-ly for the resident, and we thought we made headway. We did not.” Although FP&L switched to taller con-crete poles on the peninsula a few years ago, many other companies still use the older wooden poles, some of which belong to AT&T. Neither firm will remove a pole until all other lines are relocated. “We’ve had some luck with AT&T, FP&L and Comcast, but the fact of the matter is, if they say the power pole is going to be moved tomorrow, I couldn’t tell you when they’d do it,” Mr. Capra said. “They do it at their own pace.” The last member of the Board to speak on the topic, Mayor Frank Fender, described his experience years ago on a spe-cial committee tasked to investigate the possibility of undergrounding the town’s utilities in the aftermath of the devastating 2004 hurricane season. He emphasized, however, that the current agenda discussion had not been his idea. “I didn’t ask to see this item on the agen-da, but I was pleasantly surprised,” he admitted. “I really do believe all our lines should be underground. I was interested to see we got this quote so easily and quickly and also interested to see that the price is about the same it was 15 years ago. When I did the study back then, we determined it would have been about $500 per resident over the course of 30 years.” Mayor Fender believes the ultimate deci-sion should lie in the hands of the voters. “I was not of the opinion that the Com-mission should make such a decision of that magnitude,” he added. “My thought at that time – and it still exists today -is that a large capital project like that should be on the ballot and we should either vote to do it as a community or vote not to do it as a community.”Sewall’s Point revives undergrounding discussionCommission still divided on the cost/potential benefits but asks manager to investigate cost of a possible referendumBy Donald RodrigueFor Hometown NewsSee SEWALL , page 8

While some commission-ers initially balked, both Mayor Fender and Commissioner Mayfield liked the idea. “If it doesn’t cost you any money and doesn’t take you that long, I would like to know,” the latter said. One member of the public spoke to the Commission on the issue, North River Road resident Anthony Dwyer, who opposed under-grounding the utilities and pointed out FP&L’s recent hardening work. “The work that FP&L has done hasn’t been tested yet, the fact that the lines are above the tree line,” he said. “I’m not so sure [undergrounding] it would be wise, I have too many problems with underground cables on my property, whether it’d be tele-phone or cable. I’d love to see the poles gone, but utility-wise, I can’t imagine we’re better off.”SewallFrom page 7 CalendarFrom page 2 See CALENDAR, page 9

So, if you [students] could just tell us your name, age and if you go to a different school, that would be great to get to know you.” The first student to address the Board from Rebecca Erban’s civics class that day was 13-year-old Boden Hester of Stuart, who introduced the three topics students wanted to bring to the attention of commissioners that day. “Good morning honorable commissioners,” he said. “We are here at the County Commission from Mrs. Erban’s Civics Class to present three issues to you. Some of these issues are recent, [and] some have been around for a long time. These issues are homeless issues, water quality and teen vaping.” The rest of his classmates then approached the podium one at a time to share their concerns with those issues. The next three students focused on the problem of homelessness, with Theo Smail of Palm City emphasizing the difficulty sometimes faced by homeless men. “Homelessness is the first issue that we are here to discuss today,” he said. “Some families need a place to stay, and the shelters don’t allow men with their wives and dads with their children.” Jensen Beach resident Killian Brown, 13, told commissioners that she and her fellow students had already researched the difficulties of homelessness in Stuart and Martin County as she continued to drive Theo’s point home with her own comments. “We know that facilities exist for women and children and those affected by domestic abuse,” she said. “However, there are none for homeless men, and many are male veterans. We are cer tain that you have heard – and perhaps seen – evidence of the homeless, especially males in the woods and parking lots of businesses and parks. Killian’s next comment, a quote from Martin County Sheriff William Snyder, particularly made an impact. “Sheriff Snyder has said at the end of the day, I’m just a big, green broom moving them from one landowner to the next,” she said, quoting the sheriff verbatim. The next student, Madeline Kruize, got a round of laughter from the Board with her opening comment. “I come from Stuart – I come in peace,” she said. “We found in the media that you have been talking about homeless people, especially at Flagler Park. It’s our hope that we will see some solutions on your part and perhaps we could assist in some way.” The next student, Andrew Weimer of Hobe Sound, touched on a topic that has plagued not only the residents of Martin County, but those as far away as Palm Beach County and Lee County on Florida’s west coast over the last several years. “It is our pleasure today to address our second researched issue and one that we know you’ve been trying to solve since 2018,” he said. “That year was a disaster for many businesses, homes, families and tourists on the Treasure Coast, and especially for our precious water ways in Stuart. Recently we have heard through media sources that Stuart may plan to sue the Army Corps of Engineers in order to stop them from releasing water from Lake Okeechobee. The creation of algae blooms that would result will be disastrous for all of us. We have also heard that you as the Martin County Commissioners may support this action. If you have plans, we as a group of students would like to help.” The last three students, Aubree Coker of Palm City, Jamie Frizzel of Stuart and Ariana Murphy of Jensen Beach, all spoke on the third topic, one which has caused consternation and concern among school officials across the nation in recent years. Aubree told commissioners that she and her fellow classmates were concerned about the growing use of e-cigarettes and vaping devices by teenagers in Martin County and across the country. “There are disturbing statistics of illness and death due to vaping throughout the United States,” she insisted. “Our laws state that under the age of 18, students are not legally able to buy nicotine. But students under the age of 18 are being caught in our own county with the color ful, varied-flavored cartridges, which make them popular with children and adults.” For her part, Jamie described a serious incident provoked in the Martin County School District by underage vaping. “Three high-school students in Martin County recovered after investigators say they overdosed at two schools and had to be hospitalized in 2019,” she said. “The Martin County Sheriff’s Office said the students smoked THCvape pens that were laced with an unknown substance, possibly a narcotic.” Ariana,13, proposed a couple of potential solutions to the Board that she and her classmates had brainstormed. “We would like to propose the laws of Martin County be changed to age 21 for the sale of nicotine products, especially since many 18-yearolds still attend high school,” she emphasized. “Just as campaigns against drugs and alcohol have been in our schools, it is our suggestion that education courses against nicotine and vaping be included in our community and schools, perhaps for community service hours.” Boden then came back to the podium to bookend the class discussion with the Commission and give credit to AAALC Founder and former School Board Member Tina McSoley. “We would like to thank Ms. Tina McSoley for her suggestions for participating in civic events in our community,” he concluded. “We also appreciate your attention today. We appreciate your hard work, and we applaud two other decisions that [Stuart] city commissioners have reached on the Pelican Caf and plastic straws.” When Boden finished his comments, District 2 Commissioner Stacey Hetherington thanked the group for opining on topics of utmost importance to Martin County. “My sons have attended All About Achieving, and what a great presentation,” she said. “Vaping, we’ve been working on raising the age to 21 and licensing retailers. Water quality is certainly one of our most important issues, and homelessness. Thank you for being so active and engaged in our community.” Commissioner Ciampi echoed her comments. “You know it makes grownups nervous to come before [us] and speak, and you were poised and informative, and it was fantastic,” he said. “A civics class for young people is something that as grownups we all took in school. You’d think that they continue to have those – they don’t at the level at All About Achieving. When you get nervous that the future looks bleak, you have a morning like today where you have these young people come forward. I think we’re going to be just perfectly fine.” Ms. McSoley founded AAALC along with two other educators in 2008 as a private tutor ing company that has since morphed into robotics and much more. She said via email March 6 that this was the first time a group of her students has addressed a governing body as part of their classroom research. “The homeschool program is one big part of what we do at the school,” she said.

10 Wireless printers seem to be all the rage these days and why not? The convenience of being able to place your printer anywhere in the room, even in another room altogether and still be able to print, makes them very appealing indeed. And with just about everyone equipped with a wireless router today, picking a printer that is WiFi enabled makes sense. To top it off, the technology has gotten so common that it can be hard to find a printer that is not wireless capable. But what about the pitfalls? What are some of the “Gotchas!” that you need to keep in mind when considering a wireless printer? On the surface wireless printing looks like a great idea but, like most things computer related, it comes with a price; in this case, the price is a combination of reliability and complexity. I say reliability because wireless printers are notorious for dropping off line for no apparent reason. Usually right when something important needs to be printed, like an airline boarding pass or court document, you go to print and nothing. Worked fine yesterday but today, not so much. Now I know that some of you are reading this and thinking “what? I’ve been using a wireless printer for years and have never had a problem!” and to you I say “Great job!” but keep in mind, people don’t call me when it’s working, they call me when it stops and I hear it from different people all the time. And it’s typically the same story every time – wireless printer, working fine yester day, something really important needs to be printed today and now, nothing Or maybe a message pops up telling you the computer can’t communicate with the printer but it doesn’t matter, the end result is the same – nothing comes out of the printer. That’s when I get the call. I mentioned complexity as being the second trade off and here’s where that comes in. When you connect a printer to your computer with a wire (a USB printer cable with one end plugged into the back of the printer and the other end plugged into a USB port on the computer) that’s often all there is to it. Unless something goes wrong, your computer should automatically detect the printer and set it up often without having to click a thing. On the other hand, when you set up a wireless printer, you have all the added complexity of having to connect the printer to your WiFi router first and that, depending on the make and model of the printer, can involve anything from having to type in your WiFi password on a little control panel on the front of the printer to needing to plug the printer into the computer with a printer cable anyway and then use the computer to program the printer for WiFi access. Then you have to go to the computer and try to find and connect to the printer over the network. And when it does go off line for no apparent reason, you may find yourself reconnecting it to your wifi router all over again. There are so many things that can knock a wireless device off line I couldn’t possibly list them all here. Some of the more common reasons are power fluctuations that cause the equipment to restart, some cordless phones can cause a sort of “jamming” that can cause a printer to drop off line and even microwave interference can suddenly cause a device to drop off line. The cause doesn’t really matter the point that I’m trying to make is that the wireless connection is way more fragile and easily broken than the traditional printer cable jammed into the back of the computer. Sure there are times when a wired printer drops off line but when that happens, resetting the device usually just means unplugging it and plugging it back in. With a wireless device, you often find yourself back at square one trying to re join the printer to the wireless network. I have a rule of thumb when it comes to printers; Even if the printer is capable of running wirelessly, if it’s going to be in the same room as the computer, save yourself a headache in the future and just connect to the printer with a cable. After all, there’s no rule that says you have to use a wireless printer wirelessly they all have a place for a cable. Sean McCarthy fixes computers. He can be reached at 888-752-9049 or (No Hyphens!)

Originally written in 1982, the story follows a play within a play, giving the audience an inside look into three stages of the fictional production “Nothing On,” including the dress rehearsal, opening night, and final per formance. Featuring slapstick comedy, bickering cast members, and plenty of laughs, this comic caper lets audience members take a peek behind the curtain at the inner workings of a theatrical production. Noises Off will run from Thursday March 12 through Sunday March 29. Performance times vary by day. General admission is $35 and $15 for children and students under 18. For tickets and more information, please visit or call (772) 2874884.

13 How much do we spend on food? The answer might surprise you. The average normal family spends less money on food than their parents and grandparents did. In the early 1900s, a family would spend almost half of their income on food. Today we spend closer to 10% of our income on food. I mentioned normal families, because my family is nothing near normal when it comes to food, but I’ll get to that later. Over the past 100 years, food prices have risen dramatical-ly. In 1860, a gallon of Jim Bean was 25 cents. Boy, was I born in the wrong century! A loaf of bread in 1913 cost just over 5 cents. Eggs were 37 cents a dozen. In 1896, a can of Campbell tomato soup was 10 cents and today costs around $1 a can. That is a 10-fold increase in cost; so how are we spending less on food than ever before? The reason is inflation and rising salaries over the past 100 years. It seems to impact food less than it does for other categories of America’s spending. What this means is food prices rise more slowly than consumer spending. OK, now that we got all that math stuff out of way, let’s talk about how we buy food. The average household spends almost half of its food budget on groceries and the other half on going out for the first time in history! I bet you didn’t know the average family of four spends more money on soft drinks and other beverages than any other food item. Wow! Now back to my family, which I stated was not normal when it comes to food. We spend most of our food budget on groceries. Why not? My wife knows there’s a chef in the house. She can order anything she wants. The truth is, any family can reduce the cost of food at home if they are willing to cook a little. Cooking is not that hard, it just takes a little practice and, of course, reading my articles (ha!). Cooking is an ongoing pro-cess of trial and error. You will know, quickly, if it didn’t come out good, and you can always e-mail me; I will be happy to help. Here is your next lesson. How about mac-aroni and cheese, but not just a plain, every-day recipe. This one will make you look like a Chef. Mac & Cheese Ingredients 1 pound macaroni 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 gloves garlic, chopped 1 pound ground meat (your choice lamb, beef or turkey) 1 10 ounce package frozen chopped spin-ach, thawed 1 cup heavy cream (Half and Half or whip-ping cream) 1 can evaporated milk 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese 1cup Feta cheese, crumbled Directions Get a 4-quart pot of water boiling with a teaspoon of salt, add 1 pound macaroni and cook until tender but not too tender, just slightly firm. Set aside. Heat the oil in a large frying pan or pot over medium-high heat until hot and here is a trick, be careful and place your hand over the oil but not too close. You can tell if the oil is hot or not, if you can’t feel the heat, keep heating up until you do. Add garlic, meat and spinach, and cook for about 5 minutes until meat is no longer pink. Add evaporated milk and cook on lower heat 3-4 minutes until it thickens slightly. Reduce heat to low and add all the cheeses. Stir until melted, then salt and pep-per to taste. Drain the macaroni and add to a casserole dish, mix the cooked cream and meat sauce until combined well. Sprinkle 1/2 cup cheddar cheese over top and place in oven at 325 degrees and bake until the cheese melts and sauce is bubbling, around 5 min-utes.

14 When golf fans rattle off their “Top 10” golfers of all time, many of the usual names top the list. I would bet that for most, especially men, their list does not include a single woman. In my humble opinion, leaving out Mickey Wright, would cause me to toss each of those lists into the trash. There are many legends in sports. Many famous athletes who packed up and left at the very peak of their career. They leave fans to wonder what could have been. Perhaps they may have become the greatest of all time had they continued. What records may they have set? Would they have done so in a fashion that left them untouchable for generations? Mary Kathryn “Mickey” Wright was one of those athletes. When you look at her accomplishments, you may likely think, “How could she have done much better?”. It’s an honest question when you consider many golf fans put her on their list of all time greats that this game has seen, and consider her to be the greatest woman golfer of all time. Sadly, just a few weeks ago, we lost this golfing legend. Mickey passed away after having a heart attack just three days after her 85th birthday. In her latter years she called Port St. Lucie, Florida home and it was there that the 1976 World Golf Hall of Fame inductee passed away on February 17th. Wright was born in San Diego, California on Valentine’s Day 1935. She picked up the game as a toddler and showed signs of great talent at the age of 11. She attended Herbert Hoover High School and, while still in high school, won the 1952 U.S. Girls’ Junior. She would go on to play on the team at Stanford University. While in college she finished fourth at the U.S. Women’s Open and after winning the World Amateur Championship in 1954, she would officially turn pro and leave college before graduating. In 1955, Wright joined the LPGA Tour where she would play for only 18 seasons, winning 82 LPGA events, including 13 majors. If you’re thinking that she was the Tiger Woods of the LPGA Tour, you’d be somewhat correct. Only she took seven fewer years than Tiger to get as many wins, and had been retired a more than a decade by the time she was the age that Tiger is today. Wright won the Vare Trophy, given to the LPGA Tour player with the lowest stroke average each season, five times. She was a four-time money title winner and was named Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year twice. Her first win came in 1956 at the Jacksonville Open. She won her first major, the LPGA Championship in 1958, and followed that up a couple of weeks later with a win at the U.S. Women’s Open. In the span of just seven years, from 1958 through 1964, she captured 12 majors and a total of 59 wins. She was as dominating as they come, winning five of those majors by five or more strokes, including a pair by nine shots. She would win her last major in 1966 and retire from full-time competition in 1969 at only 34 years of age. Her final victory would come in 1973 at the Colgate Dinah Shore Winner’s Circle. Her win at the Dinah Shore came before it became a major championship on the LPGA schedule. If you need more to convince you that she was one of the greatest to play this game, ask Ben Hogan. The Hawk once said that Wright “had the finest golf swing I ever saw.” She was quite an extraordinary player according to her peers. She hit a high ball that allowed her to hold greens that many of her competitors could not. It was her long game, however, that set her apart. She was a great driver of the ball well and hit her long irons better than anyone on the Tour. She was long at a time when most players didn’t even think about hitting a golf ball the distances she could. In 1993, after nearly a decade of retirement from the game, Wright was convinced to play in a senior team event with Kathy Whitworth as her partner. She had not played in public for many years and had been given an 8:00 am tee time. When she arrived around 7:00 am at the range to warm up, over 50 tour players were there to watch the swing that Hogan had spoken so fondly of. Those players got to see what many of us never saw and will never have the opportunity to see again. If you didn’t have Mickey Wright in your “Top-10” before, I trust that I have given you reason to now. Rest in peace, Mickey, you were one of the greatest.

15 MARTIN COUNTY — A growing trend finds workplaces making big strides in supporting the health and well-being of their employees by adopting tobacco free workplaces and providing cessation resources to employees who use tobacco. Locally, a good example would be the Martin County School District and the City of Stuart, which provide a tobacco free workplace, and supports their employees’ efforts to quit smoking by providing cessation resources to their employees. They advertise the Quit Your Way program to employees during the annual Great American Smoke Out to further encourage the benefits of a tobacco free lifestyle. Promoting cessation to employees is just one of the Bureau of Tobacco Free Florida’s twelve gold standards for school tobacco policy. These twelve standards provide for reduction of youth and adult tobacco and nicotine use and encourage tobacco free social norms. Some of the twelve standards include: tobacco is specifically named in the policy, not implied by prohibiting drugs, wearing clothing or using other items that advertise or promote tobacco products is prohibited, and school staff are prohibited from using tobacco products on school grounds and at school events, whether on or off school district property. One of the primary reasons an employer chooses to adopt a tobacco free workplace is the high cost associated with tobacco use at work. Pack-a-day smokers are estimated to have 75% more lost productive time during the work day than their non-smoking co-workers, and healthcare costs are an average of 34% higher than those who do not use tobacco. (Estimating the cost of a smoking employee, 2013) In Florida, the average loss in productivity annually for a tobacco user at the workplace is $4,056. The average extra medical expense for tobacco users is $2,056. (Estimating the cost of a smoking employee, 2013.) Tobacco Free Grounds policies also support employees in their attempts to quit, helping them to change their habits and avoid temptations to smoke. The Quit Your Way program is a free ser vice provided through Tobacco Free Florida which connects people to quit counselors via phone, text, computer, or through in-person groups.
