County Celebrates our Area’s Colorful History During Historic Preservation Month

Out2News.com

Martin County Commission Chairman Edward Ciampi presenting Historic Preservation Month proclamation to Douette Pryce, Chair of the Martin County Historic Preservation Board.

Stuart – At their meeting this morning, the Martin County Board of County Commissioners presented a proclamation declaring May as Historic Preservation Month in Martin County. “In issuing this proclamation, we recognize the important role that historic preservation plays in our lives in Martin County,” said Board Chairman and District Five Commissioner Ed Ciampi. “The events that have been planned for this very special month are a great way for our community to celebrate the people and places that have made Martin County so unique.”

This year marks the Martin County Historic Preservation Board’s (HPB) tenth year of coordinating Historic Preservation Month events on behalf of the commission. According to HPB member, Joette Lorion Rice, who has been there for all of them, “It was the board’s hope, when we launched the first celebration a decade ago, that public education about our historic treasures would help a preservation ethic take root in Martin County. The 2018 Schedule of Events, that lists more 36 events by a diversity of groups, is proof that a preservation ethic has, indeed, taken root.”

The festivities will kick off on Tuesday, May 1 at 5 p.m. at the Stuart Heritage Museum, housed in the historic Stuart Feed Store (1901), where preservationists will gather to celebrate the beginning of Historic Preservation Month. Two other highlights of the month include: a plaque dedication at All Saints’ Episcopal Church (1898) on May 13 to commemorate placing Martin County’s oldest church on the Martin County Register of Historic Landmarks, and a reception at the Mansion at Tuckahoe on May 17 to present the Preservationist of the Year Award to Julie Preast.

The Captain Sewall House (circa 1889) will be open each Wednesday with historian Sandra Thurlow on hand to tell its story on May 2, and Bruce and Barbara Osborn appearing in period costume as Captain and Mrs. Sewall each week. There will also be tours of the Mansion at Tuckahoe offered each Wednesday. Open houses will be held at the Apollo School (1924), Martin County’s only surviving two-room schoolhouse; the Salerno Colored School (circa 1930), Martin County’s only surviving one-room schoolhouse; the Audubon House; the Environmental Studies Center; the House of Refuge (1876), Martin County’s oldest structure; and All Saints’ Episcopal Church (1899). There will be an open house at the Golden Gate Building (1925) with a lecture on Preserving the Golden Gate Building by Julie Preast and Saadia Tsaftarides that will culminate with a plaque unveiling to commemorate the building’s placement on the National Register of Historic Places.

Other lectures on Martin County’s rich history include: Dr. Porter of Stuart, John Wilkes Booth and the President Lincoln Conspirators by local historian Alice Luckhardt, and The History of Salerno and Its Commercial Fishing Village by John Hennessee. The historic Lyric Theatre (1926) will also offer a lecture by its Executive Director, Kia Fontaine, on Preserving the Lyric for Stuart Heritage’s monthly meeting.

The historic Art Deco style Martin County Court House (1937) Cultural Center will open its doors as well, by hosting a Sunset Concert, the Marvin S. Cone 32nd Annual Juried Art Show, Cultural Conversations about Edith Wharton and a panel discussion on Historic Buildings Repurposed by the Arts Community.

Other activities include: a Remembrance and Re-Dedication Ceremony at the Hobe Sound Allen Temple Cemetery, a National World War I Centennial Memorial Tree Dedication and a Dedication Ceremony for the sailfish statues that have been placed around the city. On May 12, Stuart Main Street, in partnership with the Stuart Heritage Museum, will host Stuart Heritage Day featuring a tour of vintage locations with an emphasis on Seminole Street.

According to Douette Pryce, Chair of the Martin County Historic Preservation Board, “Historic Preservation Month is a great way to celebrate the rich history that contributes to our sense of place here in Martin County. Our board invites Martin County residents to join us as we commemorate this very special month along with the rest of the country.”

Local Youth Impacted by Children’s Home Society to Open Race on April 21

Out2News.com

It takes a village.

Maria is 20. She is funny, smart, and with the help of the village, Maria is empowered and on a path to a bright future.

Last year, Maria stepped in to help care for her 15 and 17-year-old siblings when her father was sent to prison. Working at a restaurant, daycare, and in a beach rentals store in Jensen Beach allowed for Maria to help out with food and other household needs. When it became clear that her step mother did not want Maria in her home any longer, Maria set out to find somewhere new to call home while still helping her siblings financially. After a few days of sleeping in her car, Maria’s friend did some online research and found the Transitional Living Program (TLP) with Children’s Home Society (CHS), which provides temporary housing for 18-22-year-olds on the Treasure Coast.

Maria met with a CHS counselor, who explained that all TLP residents must work and/or be enrolled in school. As a TLP client, Maria would be able to enroll in classes at Indian River State College at no cost.

While she is pursuing classes in business she has many other interests, like travel, fashion and educational podcasts. She currently works at our very own local radio station Coast 101.3 at the front desk, in promotions, and most recently as a voice over actress.

Adding to her endeavors, Maria will be the Race Starter for the Treasure Coast Heroes 5K and 1 Mile Walk, celebrating and benefitting children in our community who are super heroes. The event is on Saturday, April 21 at Indian Riverside Park in Jensen Beach, and pre-registration is available at BeAHero5k.com through April 19th.

There’s no doubt that Maria is going to be successful in spite of the obstacles she’s had to overcome (and those that are still to come). But with the help of the community and CHS, Maria and others in similar situations will find support, and a “hand up” in getting there.

Free Tire Recycling Event Helps Martin County Combat Mosquitoes

Out2News.com

The rainy season is quickly approaching and more rain means an increase in mosquitoes. In preparation, Martin County is ramping up efforts to reduce Zika mosquito breeding sites throughout the county. As part of this initiative, and in honor of Earth Day, Martin County is hosting the second annual Tire Recycle Mania event. Martin County residents can drop off up to 10 passenger car tires per family at no cost. No commercial tires or tractor tires will be accepted.

Tire Recycle Mania will be held each Saturday from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m., beginning April 7 and continuing through May 5.

Specific locations and dates
April 7 New Monrovia Park, 4453 SE Murray St, Stuart
April 14 Lamar Howard Park, 2824 SE Ellendale St, Stuart
April 21 Langford Park, 2369 NE Dixie Hwy, Jensen Beach
April 28 Post Family Park, 15700 SW Warfield Blvd, Indiantown
May 5 Hobe Sound Community Center, 8980 SE Olympus St, Hobe Sound

Tires are one of the main breeding sites for Zika mosquitoes as they collect water, organic matter, and retain heat. Martin County hopes to collect as many tires as possible before mosquito season starts. Tire Recycle Mania is a collaboration among Martin County’s Mosquito Control Division, Utilities and Solid Waste Department, Parks and Recreation Department, and the Florida Department of Health in Martin County.

For additional information call Martin County Mosquito Control at (772) 419-6974 or visit the website at www.martin.fl.us/mosquitocontrol. For current information on projects, happenings and more, residents are encouraged to follow Martin County on Facebook at www.facebook.com/MartinCountyBoardofCountyCommissioners and Twitter @martincountygov.

Prestley Blake Shares his Friendly Story

Out2News.com

In Photo: Pres Blake – greets friends prior to the presentation about his autobiography “A Friendly Life” at the Blake Library in March

Stuart– Martin County philanthropist S. Prestley “Pres” Blake served up a multimedia presentation of his autobiography “A Friendly Life” in March at the Blake Library in Stuart.

The co-founder of the Friendly Ice Cream Corporation signed copies of his book and treated the audience to a sprinkling of the 82 years he spent creating, growing, and ultimately rescuing the Friendly Ice Cream Corporation.

The Blakes came to Martin County over 30 years ago and currently reside in Sailfish Point. “A Friendly Life” is the story of how Blake and his brother founded the company in Springfield, Massachusetts with $547 during the Great Depression, grew it into a chain of more than 500 stores, ultimately selling it to the Hershey Corporation. It’s also a chronicle of the seven-year battle Blake undertook at age 86 to wrest the company away from the management team who had purchased it from Hershey, the subject of a classic Harvard Business School case study in corporate governance and activist shareholders.

Blake and his wife Helen are major benefactors of The Library Foundation of Martin County and the Martin County Library System. “Helen and Pres Blake were instrumental in the success of the capital campaign to build new libraries for Martin County. The Blakes’ contribution to that campaign is memorialized with the name of our flagship library but their commitment goes much further,” said Stacy Ranieri, president of the foundation’s board of directors.

In his book, Blake explains his dedication to libraries. “I’ve been a lucky guy. My brother and I had loving parents, good health, ambition, and self-discipline. Those were my advantages. Success in business, in the courtroom, and in life came to me mainly because of these. I always remember I came from an ordinary background. That’s why I give to schools and libraries. I want to help other people who are looking for the tools to do well in life.”

About The Library Foundation of Martin County

Founded in 1992, the mission of The Library Foundation of Martin County, Inc. is to acquire and administer funds to enrich library services and facilities not met by public funding and to endow the library system for future generations. In addition to the Kiplinger Literary Award Luncheon, the foundation hosts the annual A Literary Affair dinner in March in conjunction with the Book Mania! Festival and a Young Literary Leaders awards event. For more information, visit http://www.libraryfoundationmc.org.

South Florida Dry Season Rainfall Less than Half of Average

Governing Board to recognize Water Conservation Month and promote residents to practice conservation

Out2News.com

About 0.72 inches of rain fell throughout South Florida in March, about 26 percent of the average March rainfall. Click on the map for a larger version.
About 5.29 inches of rain fell throughout South Florida between Nov. 2 and March 31, about 48 percent of the average amount of rainfall during that time period. Click on the map for a larger version.

West Palm Beach – From November through March, an average of 5.29 inches of rain fell District-wide. This total represents less than half of the average amount of rainfall that normally falls on the region during this same time period of the annual dry season.

District-wide, about 0.72 inches of rain fell in March, about 2.05 inches or 74 percent below average for the month. Most watersheds in the District received 30 percent of their average March rainfall or less. For the dry season so far, the Upper Kissimmee basin has been the driest at 8.34 inches or 67 percent below the average 12.5 inches.

Despite the below average rainfall so far this dry season, the South Florida Water Management District’s (SFWMD) water managers are working with other state, local and federal partners to ensure adequate water supply for the region’s 8.1 million residents through careful water management.

“While last year’s heavy rainfall and the smart management of our water resource has helped avert a shortage situation so far this dry season, this Board always encourages its residents and businesses to practice daily conservation year-round,” said SFWMD Governing Board Chairman Dan O’Keefe. “Water Conservation Month is a great time to remind everyone of the simple ways they can do their part to make every drop of water count.”

Lake Okeechobee, the backup water supply for millions of South Floridians, currently sits at an elevation of about 13.81 feet National Geodetic Vertical Datum (NGVD), still more than 2 feet above the level typically deemed a “water shortage” condition.

April is typically the driest month of the year in South Florida, and the SFWMD Governing Board will once again recognize April as Water Conservation Month at its meeting on April 12.

A La Niña weather cycle suppressed rainfall from November through March. Typical dry season conditions where evaporation rates are higher than rainfall rates are expected to continue until the start of the traditional wet season in late May or June.

As the 2017 wet season ended, the District used excess water to maintain canal levels near the upper end of their higher dry season ranges. With the below average rainfall the past several months, the District has been moving water from regional storage into canals along the Lower East Coast from Palm Beach County to Miami-Dade County to maintain water levels necessary to recharge underground aquifers used for drinking water supply and to hold back saltwater intrusion.

NAI Southcoast Announces the Sale of 21.7 Acres in Palm City for a Future Residential Subdivision

Out2News.com

STUART, Fla – NAI Southcoast is proud to announce the sale of two infill land parcels in Palm City that will be developed as the Berry Grove subdivision.

In Sunshine State Carnations selected Nikolaus M. Schroth with NAI Southcoast to represent the sale of the 9.8 acre parcel that originally served as a flower farm, but had since gone fallow.

The land was quickily sold to DR Horton, a home construction company, at which time Schroth teamed up with local commercial realtor John Leighton to present an additional 12.5 adjacent acres to DR Horton.

“DR Horton is now the owner of a 21.7 acre property with a prime location in Palm City,” said Schroth. “The site will be the home of the future Berry Grove community, providing much-needed housing for families looking to reside in Palm City.”

The approval process was handled by Rod Kennedy and Brad Currie of EDC and was navigated successfully, securing site plan approval for Berry Grove, a 62-lot single family home subdivision.

For more information on this transaction and other opportunities, contact Nikolaus M. Schroth CCIM at NAI Southcoast 772-403-3752.

Red Cross Giving Day

Out2News.com

Miami, FL., February 28, 2018 — March it’s Red Cross Month and the American Red Cross South Florida Region is asking people across South Florida to become a hero by giving blood, becoming a volunteer or making a donation to #help1family on Giving Day – March 28.

“The Red Cross is powered by our volunteer heroes who give their time, talents and compassion to fulfill our vital humanitarian mission of preventing and alleviating human suffering,” said Joanne Nowlin, Chief Executive Officer for the American Red Cross South Florida Region. “They are people from your neighborhood who donate blood, who teach First Aid and CPR classes, who support those in need at what may be the worst time in their lives. We honor them during Red Cross Month and ask you to consider joining us and making a difference.”

March was first proclaimed Red Cross Month in 1943 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to raise awareness of the organization and its humanitarian mission. President Roosevelt’s last radio talk to the nation on March 20, 1945 was in support of the Red Cross War Fund. He died 23 days later, on April 12, 1945.

This year the Red Cross salutes all the heroes who make a difference in their communities by:

Donating blood or platelets

Volunteering to help people impacted by a disaster

Taking a first aid or CPR class to help in an emergency

Providing comfort to a member of the military, a veteran or their family

Home fires are the most common disasters that the Red Cross responds to each year. On average, the South Florida Region responds to home fires every 20 hours. In the last year, the South Florida Region responded to more than 850 home fires. Volunteers drop everything – at any time of the day or night – to help people who have lost everything. “These are the moments when I can witness strangers helping other strangers in their greatest moments of need,” said Red Cross volunteer Cindy Huge. Read more about why Huge leaves her home in the middle of the night to her others: https://redcrosschat.org/2017/12/05/compassion-after-a-home-fire/.

WHAT WE DO The Red Cross has been helping people in need for more than 130 years. And much of our work is accomplished through the work of our volunteers. The Red Cross:

Responds to nearly 64,000 disasters across the country providing hope and comfort to people in need.

Trains and provides information to nearly 5.9 million people in first aid, water safety and other skills that help save lives.

Collects nearly 4.9 million units of blood from more than 2.8 million volunteer donors to meet the needs of patients at hospitals and transfusion centers across the country.

Provides nearly 391,000 support services to military members, veterans and their families.

Helps more than 181 million people outside the U.S. through disaster management and disease prevention efforts.

Locally, American Red Cross South Florida responded to over 800 home fires, educated more than 1300 kids in the Pillow Case Project and installed over 1400 smoke alarms within in the last year.

GIVING DAY The Red Cross is asking everyone to support people impacted by disasters and #help1family on Giving Day – Wednesday, March 28. Your donation can help provide hope and urgent relief such as food, blankets and other essentials to people who need it most. Giving Day is a 24-hour fundraising campaign supporting the work of the Red Cross, helping people across the country in need of emergency assistance. Donate now by visiting redcross.org/givingday, or by texting REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10.

During March, be a hero and join the humanitarian mission of the Red Cross. More information is available on how you can help at redcross.org/southflorida.

About the American Red Cross:
The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation’s blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

SFWMD Python Hunters Eliminate 900th Snake During National Invasive Species Awareness Week

Out2News.com

Eliminated snake total highlights District’s ongoing efforts to eradicate invasive species to protect the ecosystem

West Palm Beach, FL – This week hunters participating in the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) Governing Board’s Python Elimination Program achieved the latest milestone for this highly successful initiative by eliminating the 900th snake. An average of three pythons have been eliminated per day from SFWMD lands since the program began in March 2017.

“This Governing Board program has been enormously effective in killing this relentless predator in an effort to preserve native Everglades wildlife,” said SFWMD scientist Mike Kirkland, project manager for the Python Elimination Program. “The sheer numbers and the sizes of the snakes being caught demonstrate how massive a threat these predators are to our beautiful habitat.”

Hunter Eric Bramblet dispatched the 900th python in Collier County, a 5.5-foot long snake. This record high total comes as SFWMD observes National Invasive Species Awareness Week, Feb. 26-March 2, which is meant to bring attention to the problem of exotic and invasive plants and animals that are wreaking havoc on ecosystems throughout the world. In addition to the innovative program fighting the spread of Burmese pythons, the SFWMD Governing Board for years has budgeted millions of dollars in cooperation with other state and federal partners to eradicate and control invasive species such as Melaleuca, Brazilian pepper trees and the invasive fern Lygodium.

All the pythons eliminated by the program would stretch approximately 6,400 feet – or roughly 1.25 miles – and weigh more than 15,000 pounds, or the equivalent of approximately 7.5 tons. Elected officials and celebrities ranging from U.S. Rep. Francis Rooney, R-Fla., to superstar chef Gordon Ramsey have taken part in the hunt, bringing international awareness to the issue of this invasive species and the District’s efforts to eradicate them. Kirkland and the python hunters were also featured in a Discovery Channel television special highlighting the program.

“The taxpayers of Florida have invested billions of dollars to restore the natural beauty and health of Florida’s Everglades, a rare ecosystem that is critical to our state,” said U.S. Rep. Francis Rooney, R-Fla., a participant and champion for the Python Elimination Program. “It is important that we all do our part to control invasive species, protect native wildlife, and protect the taxpayer’s investment. I applaud Mike, the python hunters, and the entire South Florida Water Management District staff for their efforts in removing 900 Burmese Pythons.”

Midnight Masquerade Raises $90,000 for Pediatric Care Program

Out2News.com

Stuart -Almost 300 came together for a night of dinner, dancing, and intrigue at the Midnight Masquerade at Mariner Sands Country Club in Stuart. The event raised $90,000 for the Treasure Coast Hospice Foundation in support of Treasure Health’s specialized pediatric care program, Little Treasures, which focuses on the unique needs of children facing serious illness.

Amid a flurry of fanciful masks, participants heard about the lives touched by the Little Treasures’ program. Oralea Marquardt, the mother of William Marquardt, was the keynote speaker. William received hospice care for seven years beginning in 2007 after he was diagnosed with Gm1 gangliosidosis. Oralea shared how Treasure Health’s pediatric care program provided her son and the entire family with support and guidance to help William live his life to the fullest until his death at the age of eight and a half in 2014.

U.S. Representative Brian Mast made a visit to the event, aiding the Little Treasures program by offering “A Day with a Congressman” for the live auction. The event also featured a silent auction, a best dressed/mask contest and music from The Incredible Johnny L.

Agnes Palmer, Treasure Health Development Officer, said “We are blessed to have Event Chair Charity Parsons and her wonderful committee of dedicated volunteers. The success of this event reflects their hard work as well as the generosity of many donors in our community who support Treasure Health’s pediatric program, which provides individualized palliative and hospice care to children with serious illness.”

Midnight Masquerade Raises $90,000 for Pediatric Care Program

Out2News.com

Stuart – Almost 300 came together for a night of dinner, dancing, and intrigue at the Midnight Masquerade at Mariner Sands Country Club in Stuart. The event raised $90,000 for the Treasure Coast Hospice Foundation in support of Treasure Health’s specialized pediatric care program, Little Treasures, which focuses on the unique needs of children facing serious illness.

Amid a flurry of fanciful masks, participants heard about the lives touched by the Little Treasures’ program. Oralea Marquardt, the mother of William Marquardt, was the keynote speaker. William received hospice care for seven years beginning in 2007 after he was diagnosed with Gm1 gangliosidosis. Oralea shared how Treasure Health’s pediatric care program provided her son and the entire family with support and guidance to help William live his life to the fullest until his death at the age of eight and a half in 2014.

U.S. Representative Brian Mast made a visit to the event, aiding the Little Treasures program by offering “A Day with a Congressman” for the live auction. The event also featured a silent auction, a best dressed/mask contest and music from The Incredible Johnny L.

Agnes Palmer, Treasure Health Development Officer, said “We are blessed to have Event Chair Charity Parsons and her wonderful committee of dedicated volunteers. The success of this event reflects their hard work as well as the generosity of many donors in our community who support Treasure Health’s pediatric program, which provides individualized palliative and hospice care to children with serious illness.”

Victoria Defenthaler Files as Candidate for Martin County School Board District 3
An Educator, a Parent, and a Champion for Children

Out2News.com

Hobe Sound – Victoria Defenthaler, former principal of Bessey Creek Elementary, has filed as a candidate for Martin County School Board District 3.

Victoria recently retired after an outstanding 40- year career in public education. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education and a Master’s Degree in Educational Administration and Supervision. In her earlier years, she taught elementary and middle school; later, she worked at the district level as a Mainstream Consultant and District Program Specialist. For the last 16 years, Victoria was principal at national award-winning Bessey Creek Elementary.

Victoria’s campaign is built around her commitment as a Champion for Children.

Victoria’s #1 goal is to refocus and address ALL students’ educational needs.

This requires strong Safe School initiatives and a marked increase in student progress and graduation rates. To do this, new and talented instructors must be recruited to our district. New and innovative programs must become the norm for our students. “Tried and true” programs will be the basis, but we must move forward and address tomorrow….today!

Victoria’s #2 goal is fiscal accountability to the taxpayers.

Board decisions must be made using data-driven information and based on common sense. Using the district’s resources diligently and efficiently, the best practices and best programs must be implemented in a timely fashion. Delaying tactics cost taxpayers dollars and accomplish nothing for students.

“I will use my knowledge and experience, coupled with my business background and common sense approach, to represent our taxpayers fairly and give ALL our students the materials to achieve success,” said Defenthaler. “The School Board and Superintendent work as a team and I’m ready to be a part of that team.”

Treasure Health Honors Volunteers with Appreciation Celebrations

Out2News.com

STUART – Treasure Health kicked off the new year by honoring the service of their many volunteers at two appreciation parties held in Martin and St. Lucie counties. Last year, 375 volunteers collectively provided more than 42,000 hours to support the mission of Treasure Health by visiting patients, working in thrift stores, caring for patients’ pets, preparing materials to educate families and caregivers, serving on boards and committees and helping with other services.

In a show of appreciation, clinical leadership and members of the executive team served lunch to the volunteers and personally expressed their gratitude for the important role volunteers play within the organization.

“Volunteers are an integral part of our team and their contributions are invaluable to the work we do each and every day to deliver care to patients and families in our community,” said Angella Williams, Vice President of Human Resources. “It is an honor to recognize and thank so many dedicated volunteers who inspire us daily with their warmth and generosity.”

Many members of the community share their time and talents at Treasure Health as a way to give back after receiving services that can include hospice, palliative care, grief support counseling and pediatric care.

“I love what I do,” said volunteer Pat Andrini. “I enjoy giving back for the care I received. It feels good to be making a difference.”

During the appreciation celebrations, volunteers were introduced to Treasure Health’s new Volunteer Manager Deborah Kotrady. In addition to lunch and the presentation of service pins and certificates, volunteers enjoyed entertainment from Joe Sapienza, June and Gordon Pickett, and Balloon Masterz.

Local Homeowner Wants You to Know

Out2News.com

Palm City – Can you imagine going up North for the summer and coming home to find your house was robbed and worse’ the thieves moved in for a month. They used a crow bar to break 2 locks on the kitchen slider .Had to be someone passing my house every day many times to see I left town. I live by a dead end so most people have no reason to pass my home and many residents leave for the summer.

FPL gave me a day by day account when they used my electric. Martin Utilities let me know how much water they used that I had to pay for. A neighbor saw a strange car in my garage but never said anything to anyone. It seems the squatters worked during the day since no one from HOA ever saw them and I live next to HOA. I also live directly across from the security guard house. I don’t know if anyone saw anything because the head of security MDPOA never returned my phone call from a month ago. Wouldn’t matter because they replace guards here every 2 weeks so you never know who you should trust.

They took a hammer to my Onyx marble bathroom vanity. They broke several tiles in 3 bathrooms by sinks and took the enamel off utility sink from some kind of acid or paint thinner. He used my tuperware and kitchen spatula’s to mix his paint. He stole all the tools, elec. screwdrivers and everything else he wanted. He left his caulking gun filthy from caulk & white paint. My white kitchen set is filthy from their dirty work clothes. They broke my garage door and left grease marks all over my 8 ft. doors.

The woman wore my clothes & threw her dirty blouses in back of closet,. She stole several pairs of my expensive shoes and left the empty shoe boxes. She stole expensive jewelry and designer clothes. She stole everything she wanted from my kitchen and 4 bedrooms.. She rearranged everything in my hse to make things confusing and camouflaged. They stole my Llardo from Barcelona and my Grandmother’s fine silverware & replaced it with imitation. My white kitchen set is filthy dirty from their work clothes as are my carpets and rugs.. Someone worked with a lot of paint since residue and caulking were left in so many places. They wore my designer sunglasses while they painted because white paint was all over them..

There is a paint trailer parked next to my home for the last two years. A truck full of men go back and forth all day long to get their paint. HOA refuses to move it to another location because they told me they wouldn’t know what to say to them.

How does this tragedy happen when one lives in one of the most expensive HOA country clubs in Palm City? No one came thru security using my name so obviously they came in thru another name and maybe still here.

MONARCH HOA has done nothing; not even made their residents aware of what could happen to them. It could happen to any of us again when we leave town and Monarch does not care.

Treasure Coast Food Bank Named to Advocacy Hall of Fame

Out2News.com

FORT PIERCE, Fla, Jan. 26, 2918 – As Hurricane Irma approached and again in its aftermath, Treasure Coast Food Bank was constantly in touch with Florida’s federal and state legislators so they could tell their constituents where to find help.

It’s one of many types of routine communication for which Treasure Coast Food Bank was once again named to the 2017 Feeding America Advocacy Hall of Fame. It marks the fifth consecutive year that Treasure Coast Food Bank attained the honor.

Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger relief organization, created the national recognition program in 2013 to recognize leading advocates. In 2017, 43 member food banks earned the recognition.

“Ending hunger begins with an understanding of this important issue, not only at the grass roots level but also in Tallahassee and Washington,” said Krista Garofalo, Chief Strategy & Advocacy Officer for Treasure Coast Food Bank. “We make it part of our mission to communicate regularly with the community and our elected officials so they understand our collaborative partnerships and what impact they have creating food security. When Hurricane Irma threatened the Treasure Coast, we were glad to be a resource for our elected officials to help their constituents.”

Each year, Feeding America sets out a list of challenges for its member food banks to be named to the Advocacy Hall of Fame. The 2017 list included multiple communications with grassroots supporters, community and business leaders, state and local legislative staff, members of congress and stories in local media.

In addition to numerous contacts before and after Hurricane Irma, Garofalo and Treasure Coast Food Bank President & CEO Judith Cruz met with members of Congress in Washington D.C. about the federal nutrition safety net and shared progress on Treasure Coast Food Bank’s new food production facility and their Florida Agriculture and Nourishment Collaborative program. They also participated in the National Diaper Bank Network Lobby Day conference and in the USDA National Advisory Council on Maternal, Infant, and Fetal Nutrition, representing non-profit public interest organizations. Treasure Coast Food Bank’s food production plant was featured in the USDA’s Southeast Regional Office Food and Nutrition Services end-of-year report.

Within Florida, Treasure Coast Food Bank representatives also attended numerous area-wide meetings to educate community leaders about topics affecting hunger and poverty, including child nutrition, SNAP eligibility, and tax reform.

Vietnam Veterans Help Deployed Military

Out2News.com

Chapter 1041 of Martin County, Vietnam Veterans of America representatives met at Edible Spirits on Tuesday, January 23, 2018. The reason? To commemorate the efforts of those who donated to their care packages going to military in combat zones.

Judy Trousdale stands with these veterans in spirit and in support. As owner of Edible Spirits located at 6058 SE Federal Hwy in south Stuart, she has been sending cakes to soldiers since 2010. She joined the VVA’s Care Package promotion effort in late 2017, by including her cakes in their packages.

According to VVA, Chapter 1041 President, Lew Jones, their group’s purpose is:
• To help foster, encourage, and promote the improvement of the condition of the Vietnam-era Veteran.
• To assist disabled and needy veterans and their dependents, widows and orphans.
• To promote patriotism, military service, and service to the United States of America.

The care package includes:
• iTune cards for games and communications
• cakes from Edible Spirits,
• letters from school children.

Events such as the Air Show, provided space and utensils for children to write letters to military. Member’s interaction with grandchildren and their school projects has also provided heartfelt letters to the soldiers.

Mr. Jones stated that they had been sending toiletries and such, but were told the above items were what helped most.

Some of the drives by the VVA to fund these packages involves mornings in front of Publix. If you’ve been looking for a way to support your military, stop and talk to these veterans when you see them outside your Publix.

Otherwise, you can send your donation to the Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 1041, P.O. Box 1996, Stuart, FL. 34995.

Garber Buick GMC & Madison’s Miracles Partner to Donate a Cuddle Cot to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center

Out2News.com

In Photo : Tiffany Thompson, Blake Thompson & Ward Thompson

Ft. Pierce – After Tiffany Thompson experienced the tragic still born death of her daughter, her employer Garber Buick GMC assists in fundraising to purchase a Cuddle Cot for Lawnwood Regional Medical Center.

Not feeling movement of her unborn baby, the family drove to Martin Health System where she was told the heartbreaking news, “I am sorry, there is no heartbeat”. After her delivery, Mrs. Thompson was offered to use a Cuddle Cot. A Cuddle Cot keeps the baby cool so no signs of the physical changes that happen shortly after death are noticed. This gives the family more time if they choose too and promotes health closure. Martin Health System was the very first hospital in the state to have a Cuddle Cot in October of 2016 by Madison’s Miracles. Mrs. Thompson chose to use the Cuddle Cot and said, “This really made a huge difference. I was able to spend time cuddling. We got pictures and family members and friends came to say goodbye.”

Shortly after returning to work, Mrs. Thompson brought literature educating her fellow co-workers, customers and anyone who asked about her baby. The service department at Garber Buick GMC in Ft. Pierce, FL became very interested in the Cuddle Cot and how it helped Mrs. Thompson. They allowed her to display brochures and even sell bracelets. One day, the service manager, Mike Mantovi and his staff surprised Mrs. Thompson with a poster that hangs in the lobby still today encouraging anyone who would like to support efforts to raise funds for a Cuddle Cot to be donated in her daughter’s name. General Manager, Ralph Lenoci and owner, Dick Garber also contributed funds towards the Cuddle Cot.

On Friday, February 2nd just one month shy of Mrs. Thompson’s loss, Mrs. Thompson along with Garber Buick GMC and Madison’s Miracles will donated a Cuddle Cot to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center in honor of Taylor Estelle Lee Thompson. Mrs. Thompson said, “There is an importance to this. I want families to have the opportunity I did. It helped me so much in my own grieving process”. The dedication will be a public event held at Lawnwood Regional Medical Center located at 1700 S 23rd St, Fort Pierce, FL on Friday, February 2nd at 9:00am.

Madison’s Miracles is a 501 (c) 3 founded by Chris and Christina Stamper after the loss of their daughter, Madison Elizabeth Stamper. Mrs. Stamper wanted to use her tragedy and turn it into helping other families who experience loss. Madison’s Miracles is dedicated in helping families who experience pregnancy and infant loss. They strive to honor all babies gone too soon every day. For more information on the Cuddle Cot and Madison’s Miracles, please visit www.madisonsmiracles.org.

Children’s Services Council of St. Lucie County Honored at Treasure Coast Hospice Foundation’s 2017 Thanks for Giving

Out2News.com

STUART – The Children’s Services Council of St. Lucie County (CSC) was one of three honorees recognized at Treasure Coast Hospice Foundation’s 2017 Thanks for Giving reception and dinner for demonstrating outstanding commitment to the Foundation and its support of Treasure Health’s mission.
For the past 17 years, the CSC has partnered with Treasure Health, generously contributing more than $300,000 to the Grief Support program to aid hundreds of children and families in St. Lucie County experiencing difficult situations.
A significant portion of CSC’s support has funded Camp Good Grief, a program designed to help children who are coping with the loss of a parent or sibling find the support that is essential to healing. Planned and facilitated by Treasure Health Grief Support counselors and staff, Camp Good Grief offers children the opportunity to enjoy the freedom, fun and activities of childhood while meeting and bonding with other kids who are struggling with similar emotions.

The partnership between Treasure Health Grief Support and the CSC also provides support for programs throughout the school year. These programs help children in St. Lucie County who may experience other feelings of loss, whether it’s from being displaced because of a hurricane or witnessing violence within their communities.
“The CSC is committed to the mental, physical and emotional well-being of children throughout the County, and we are acutely aware of how vulnerable children can feel when they encounter loss in its many different manifestations. When we turn to reach out to the counselors at Treasure Health, we are confident that each child in need will find comfort and understanding,” said Ashley Mock, CSC Communications Coordinator.
“Treasure Health is grateful to the Children’s Services Council of St. Lucie County for its continued partnership and unwavering support of our grief counseling services and bereavement camps,” said Jacki Nardone, Director of Counseling and Pediatric Services.

About Treasure Health

Mimi McCallum’s Art Reflection

Out2martincounty.comThrough my art I aspire to capture moments in time that relate to memories that touch our hearts. I aspire to create images of objects, places and figures with pleasing shapes and energetic color.

My “people stories” are paintings including figure in them. This is a subject I enjoy painting. My people are All People and an experience we can share. The “At the Beach” series provides glimpses of sensual and relaxing times that are the beach. The beach offers a refuge from the routine and mundane. The figures enjoy the warm sun, the wind blowing their hair, umbrellas, towels, sand in their toes and the beauty of the ocean.

Stuart, Florida (January 11, 2018) – Midnight Masquerade, an elegant night of dinner, dancing, and intrigue to benefit the Treasure Coast Hospice Foundation, will be held Saturday, February 10, starting at 5 p.m. at Mariner Sands Country Club in Stuart. Funds raised from Midnight Masquerade will support Treasure Health’s specialized pediatric care program, Little Treasures.

This year, Ms. Parsons and her committee are preparing another captivating evening of dinner, dancing, live and silent auctions. Guests will also enjoy music by The Incredible Johnny L, who has performed in venues in Vegas, Atlantic City and more.
“Though I support many local charities, Little Treasures holds a special place in my heart,” said Charity Parsons. “I have often heard there is no pain like losing your own child. I believe that to be true. I feel every effort should be made to keep a family whole while dealing with a seriously ill child and well after they have gone to heaven. The programs of Treasure Health, and specifically Little Treasures, make that possible.”

University of Florida/lFAS Extension Florida Master Gardeners Martin County Hosts Annual Florida Arbor Day Tree Seedling Giveaway

Out2News.com

Stuart, FL – In celebration of Florida Arbor Day, the UF/IFAS Extension Florida Master Gardeners Martin County Program will be offering free sand pine tree seedlings to residents of Martin County on Saturday, January 20, 2018, from 9:00 to 11:45 a.m. at the UF/IFAS Extension Martin County Office, located at 2614 SE Dixie Highway in Stuart. Trees are being offered thanks to a donation from Val Martin of Florida Classics Library. The Martin County Extension Interim Director and Master Gardener Volunteers will offer educational display tables and presentations with information about the trees and how to best care for them after planting. No advance reservations please. The giveaway trees will be available on a first-come, first-served basis the day of the event.

It has been more than 130 years since J. Sterling Morton founded Arbor Day, and his simple idea of setting aside a special day for tree planting is now more important than ever. Properly sited trees can reduce energy costs through shading, provide wildlife habitat, reduce erosion and stormwater runoff, sequester greenhouse gas emissions, and increase property values. As January is the optimal time to plant trees across the state, Florida Arbor Day is celebrated on the third Friday in January.

A Florida native pine tree, sand pine (Pinus clausa) grows well in our often sandy, nutrient-poor soils. Sand pines are small- to medium-sized trees and they have conical crowns, which makes them a Floridian Christmas tree option, with proper shearing. As they mature, the trunk and branches often grow in a curving manner, lending a picturesque, bonsai-like appearance. The sand pines to be offered at this year’s Arbor Day event are the Choctawhatchee variety (Pinus clausa var. immuginata), sourced from the Florida Forest Service. Choctawatchee sand pine survives transplanting well and therefore is often planted for habitat restoration. Sand pine scrub habitats are in decline in Florida, due to development, but local examples can be found at Doc Meyers Park, Halpatiokee Park, Maggie’s Hammock, Twin Rivers Park, Haney Creek Park, Kiplinger, Peck Lake Park, Gomez, Jonathan Dickinson State Park, Savannas State Park, Hobe Sound Nature Center, and other public parks. Visit https://www.martin.fl.us/parksandrec and https://discovermartin.com/see-do/ecotourism/ to learn more.

The University of Florida/IFAS Extension Martin County administers the Martin County Master
Gardener program, training and providing continuing education for horticulture volunteers. Trained Master Gardener volunteers provide residents with environmentally sound, research-based horticultural information. Goals of the program are to increase the availability of horticultural information for the community at large and to improve the quality of life for the residents of Martin County through horticultural volunteer activities.

Christmas Is For Kids

Out2News.com

Jensen Beach – Christmas was in the air at Jan’s place where partnering with The Women’s Power Lunch was 3G Delights, AAA of Stuart, Colorado Pawn, Got Windows Need Blinds, Out2News, Sailfish plumbing and Suit Yourself Swinwear, it was all for the kids at Hibicus Children’s Center and House of Hope.

House of Hope has been providing basic human needs for struggling people in Martin County, Fla., since 1984.

A nonprofit community service agency, House of Hope provides its core service programs at each of its four locations — Stuart (Golden Gate), Hobe Sound, Indiantown and Jensen Beach

Those served by House of Hope typically are people who work for low wages and exist paycheck-to paycheck, victims of personal life tragedies (such as a major medical catastrophe, death in the family or sudden job loss) and low fixed-income retirees who live on Social Security benefits of only a few hundred dollars a month.

Our clients are people like the cashier at the grocery store, the laundress who dry cleans your clothes, the waiter who serves your meals, the laborer who cuts your grass, the elderly man who helps take your groceries to the car, the tradesman who lost his job in the economic downturn, the saleswoman whose hours were cut. They are people you know, people you like. They are your neighbors in need.

The Hibiscus Children’s Shelter in Jensen Beach, Florida provides a safe environment for newborns to 12-year olds removed from their homes because of abuse, neglect or abandonment.

Children receive 24-hour “awake” supervision, nursing and therapeutic treatment by trained professionals in a safe and loving environment. The children’s Shelter has provided tens of thousands of safe nights of service to thousands of children from Florida’s four-county Treasure Coast who have come to Hibiscus Children’s Center seeking refuge from their own home. As a result, the impact of abuse on their long–term health, safety and self-esteem has been significantly reduced.

What began as an afternoon luncheon for ten friends has grown into a calling list of over 600 women at the monthly luncheons. Anne Schafer, the founder of the Ladies Power Lunch, attributes the success of the group to great networking and support for one another! The group meets on the third Thursday of Each Month at Eagle Marsh Golf Club.

Christmas Is For Kids

Out2News.com

Jensen Beach – Christmas was in the air at Jan’s place where partnering with The Women’s Power Lunch was 3G Delights, AAA of Stuart, Colorado Pawn, Got Windows Need Blinds, Out2News, Sailfish plumbing and Suit Yourself Swinwear, it was all for the kids at Hibicus Children’s Center and House of Hope.

House of Hope has been providing basic human needs for struggling people in Martin County, Fla., since 1984.

A nonprofit community service agency, House of Hope provides its core service programs at each of its four locations — Stuart (Golden Gate), Hobe Sound, Indiantown and Jensen Beach

Those served by House of Hope typically are people who work for low wages and exist paycheck-to paycheck, victims of personal life tragedies (such as a major medical catastrophe, death in the family or sudden job loss) and low fixed-income retirees who live on Social Security benefits of only a few hundred dollars a month.

Our clients are people like the cashier at the grocery store, the laundress who dry cleans your clothes, the waiter who serves your meals, the laborer who cuts your grass, the elderly man who helps take your groceries to the car, the tradesman who lost his job in the economic downturn, the saleswoman whose hours were cut. They are people you know, people you like. They are your neighbors in need.

The Hibiscus Children’s Shelter in Jensen Beach, Florida provides a safe environment for newborns to 12-year olds removed from their homes because of abuse, neglect or abandonment.

Children receive 24-hour “awake” supervision, nursing and therapeutic treatment by trained professionals in a safe and loving environment. The children’s Shelter has provided tens of thousands of safe nights of service to thousands of children from Florida’s four-county Treasure Coast who have come to Hibiscus Children’s Center seeking refuge from their own home. As a result, the impact of abuse on their long–term health, safety and self-esteem has been significantly reduced.

What began as an afternoon luncheon for ten friends has grown into a calling list of over 600 women at the monthly luncheons. Anne Schafer, the founder of the Ladies Power Lunch, attributes the success of the group to great networking and support for one another! The group meets on the third Thursday of Each Month at Eagle Marsh Golf Club.

Treasure Health Invites Community to Honor Loved Ones This Holiday Season Through Tree of Life Celebrations

Out2News.com

STUART-Treasure Health will hold its annual Tree of Life celebrations in December, giving the community an opportunity to come together to honor loved ones during the holiday season. The seasonal celebrations will be held in Stuart on Wednesday, Dec. 6; Fort Pierce on Thursday, Dec. 7; and Port St. Lucie on Monday, Dec. 18 at 6 p.m.

The annual events are held in partnership with the City of Stuart, City of Fort Pierce, and Town of Tradition. Locations are as follows:

Stuart: Downtown Gazebo at 100 E. Ocean Ave.
Fort Pierce: Downtown Gazebo at the corner of Avenue A/Indian River Dr.
Port St. Lucie: Tradition Lakeside Gazebo, SW Meeting St.

The celebrations will include an inspirational message of hope from Treasure Health and live holiday music by local school choirs. Attendees can also purchase a porcelain keepsake ornament engraved with the words “Forever in our Hearts” for $15 to support Treasure Health Grief Support services in Martin and St. Lucie counties.

“The holidays can be challenging for some who have experienced the loss of a loved one,” said Jacki Nardone, Treasure Health Grief Support Director of Counseling and Pediatric Services. “The Tree of Life events provide an opportunity to acknowledge and express those feelings while being surrounded by a supportive group of people who have experienced a similar loss.”

Guests at all of the Tree of Life celebrations may acknowledge their loss by writing the names of their loved ones on a special memory tag that is placed on the decorated tree. For those who are unable to attend their local ceremony, memory tags may be picked up at the Mayes Center or the Thomas Counseling Center and hung on any of the trees at their convenience. The trees will be displayed in the downtown gazebos throughout the holiday season.

County Settles Lake Point Lawsuit; Gains Over 400 Acres Adjacent to C-44/Okeechobee Waterway and Reconfirms Support for Lake Point Public Works Project

Out2News.com

The Martin County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) approved a legal settlement with the owners of Lake Point today, coming after the South Florida Water Management District’s settlement with Lake Point in August.

“After months of working toward a resolution through court-ordered mediation, we have reached an agreement which we believe is in the best financial interest of the County. The settlement is considerably less than the original amount requested by Lake Point, and will be structured with payments over time to offset the impact to residents,” said Board Chairman Doug Smith.

As part of the settlement agreement, the County will purchase over 400 acres of land adjacent to the C-44/Okeechobee Waterway to develop as a stormwater treatment area (STA), providing significant environmental benefits as well as other uses for 12 million dollars.

In the spirit of cooperation, the County is formally apologizing to the Lake Point owners, principals and its employees. “We realize the meaningful economic contribution of the continued public-private partnership with Lake Point, and this settlement allows us to move forward in our continued efforts to protect and improve environmental resources of Martin County,” said Taryn Kryzda, County Administrator.

This case began in 2013 and is set for trial in February 2018. By settling the case, the County eliminates its exposure for possible damages and the further expenditure of attorney’s fees and costs. It also reconfirms its support for the Lake Point Public Works Project.

Humane Society Celebrates 2016-2017 Accomplishments While Looking Ahead to 2018

Out2News.com

In Photo: A total of 3,137 animals were placed in loving homes through HSTC programs this past year through adoptions and owner returns

STUART – The Humane Society of the Treasure Coast (HSTC) is aggressively moving ahead with its plans for the future while celebrating its 2016-2017 fiscal year as another banner year filled with accomplishments.

For a record fifth consecutive year, the HSTC topped over 2,000 total adoptions. Its 2,445 adoptions amount to the second highest total in the shelter’s 62-year history. Since 2013 and the opening of its new clinic and isolation unit, the shelter has adopted out 11,491 animals through its adoption center in Palm City, thrift stores and other offsite adoption venues.

A total of 3,137 animals were placed in loving homes through HSTC programs this past year through adoptions (2,445), owner returns (352) — with 47 percent of the stray dogs being returned to their owners — and transfers (340) to other rescue groups and partner shelters across the country.

The HSTC also continues to provide the only low cost and no cost spay-neuter programs in the area. The number of animals spayed or neutered through its community program this past year was 1,598. Since opening its onsite surgical suite five years ago, more than 20,000 animals have been spayed or neutered including 11,500 at low or no cost.

“We continue to save more lives than ever and we also have expanded our humane education programs in the schools, senior living facilities, hospitals and recovery centers, other nonprofits and now the Martin County Court System,” said HSTC President and CEO Frank Valente.

The HSTC’s volunteer base expanded as did its veterinary staff. Its volunteer base has grown from 400 to over 520 volunteers. Dr. Patricia Diskant came on board as a fulltime veterinarian in July. She joined veterinarians Dr. Kea Apilado and Dr. Roderick Wood.

The HSTC received a 4-star rating, the highest ranking possible from Charity Navigator, America’s premier and largest independent charity evaluator of financial management and accountability and transparency. No other animal-related charity on the Treasure Coast received a 4-star rating. Charity Navigator has rated the HSTC 4 stars six out of the last eight years, and never below 3 stars.

Valente is looking for 2018 to be even more successful as the nonprofit organization looks to accomplish the following goals.

• Building the “Jane and Shirley Wurz Training Center” as part of its shelter renovation project, thanks to a $1 million gift from longtime supporter Jane Wurz. The building is named in honor of her and her sister and will be used seven days a week for obedience classes for the public, agility classes, seminars, workshops, events, and shelter animal enrichment activity.

• The Frank and Millie Savastano Dog Adoption Enrichment project to renovate the indoor dog adoption areas, improve outdoor play areas, increase dog enrichment and create a more serene environment for the shelter dogs.

• New construction for free roaming cat space and rabbit and small animal adoptions, including the creation of new enrichment activities for cats.

The new construction is expected to begin sometime this fiscal year. The shelter’s pet therapy program also will be expanding into the Martin County court system in the coming year.

Stuart’s Newest Retirement Community Puts a Fresh Spin on Memory Care

Out2News.com

Symphony at Stuart introduces concept of Memory Support to local seniors

STUART, Fla. (October 19, 2017) – A brand new senior living community is inviting Florida families to change the way they think about Assisted Living, Memory Care, and Alzheimer’s Disease. Symphony at Stuart is gearing up for its Grand Opening Gala on Thursday, November 2, and a key topic of discussion is sure to be its signature In the Moment® Memory Support program.

“Senior living, especially Memory Care is a greater need in Stuart than most people understand,” explained Andrea Abbott, Regional Director of Sales and Marketing. “Since Alzheimer’s impacts the mind and body, it’s absolutely crucial that we treat both of them. In the Moment lets us do that.”

The In the Moment program, which is exclusive to Symphony at Stuart, is a team-approach to Dementia care that focuses on holistic healing, promoting overall well-being, and celebrating resident individuality. “It sounds complicated, but it’s really not,” explained Abbott. “We take the time to sincerely learn who the resident is, what their wants and needs are, and what they still enjoy. We understand how much emotional health ties into overall well-being, so we try to create everyday moments where our residents enjoy being a part of our family.”

“We strive to create an environment where our residents can truly thrive once they move in with us,” added Edward Trotta, Symphony at Stuart’s Executive Director. “We’ve earned a reputation for outstanding customer service, and making sure our residents are happy, whether it’s their first day or 500th day, is a huge component. We don’t just want seniors to move in. We want them to move in, make friends, get involved, and really flourish here.”

The community also offers Assisted Living and Respite, or short-term care. “The most important thing I can share about what we offer is that it’s fully customizable,” added Trotta. “No two residents are the same, so their care package shouldn’t be either. Whether you’re looking for a long-term care solution for a loved one or a winter respite for your favorite snowbird, we can help.”

The Grand Opening Gala, which will be held at 4900 SE Willoughby Blvd. on Thursday, November 2, from 4:30 – 7:00 p.m., is free to attend and open to the public.

“If someone you love is in the market for senior living, this is a great chance to meet the leadership team, see the location, and ask questions,” said Trotta. “You’ll want to join our family early, because once the word gets out, it’s going to grow fast!”

Stuart’s Newest Retirement Community Puts a Fresh Spin on Memory Care

Symphony at Stuart introduces concept of Memory Support to local seniors

STUART, Fla. (October 19, 2017) – A brand new senior living community is inviting Florida families to change the way they think about Assisted Living, Memory Care, and Alzheimer’s Disease. Symphony at Stuart is gearing up for its Grand Opening Gala on Thursday, November 2, and a key topic of discussion is sure to be its signature In the Moment® Memory Support program.

“Senior living, especially Memory Care is a greater need in Stuart than most people understand,” explained Andrea Abbott, Regional Director of Sales and Marketing. “Since Alzheimer’s impacts the mind and body, it’s absolutely crucial that we treat both of them. In the Moment lets us do that.”

The In the Moment program, which is exclusive to Symphony at Stuart, is a team-approach to Dementia care that focuses on holistic healing, promoting overall well-being, and celebrating resident individuality. “It sounds complicated, but it’s really not,” explained Abbott. “We take the time to sincerely learn who the resident is, what their wants and needs are, and what they still enjoy. We understand how much emotional health ties into overall well-being, so we try to create everyday moments where our residents enjoy being a part of our family.”

“We strive to create an environment where our residents can truly thrive once they move in with us,” added Edward Trotta, Symphony at Stuart’s Executive Director. “We’ve earned a reputation for outstanding customer service, and making sure our residents are happy, whether it’s their first day or 500th day, is a huge component. We don’t just want seniors to move in. We want them to move in, make friends, get involved, and really flourish here.”

The community also offers Assisted Living and Respite, or short-term care. “The most important thing I can share about what we offer is that it’s fully customizable,” added Trotta. “No two residents are the same, so their care package shouldn’t be either. Whether you’re looking for a long-term care solution for a loved one or a winter respite for your favorite snowbird, we can help.”

The Grand Opening Gala, which will be held at 4900 SE Willoughby Blvd. on Thursday, November 2, from 4:30 – 7:00 p.m., is free to attend and open to the public.

“If someone you love is in the market for senior living, this is a great chance to meet the leadership team, see the location, and ask questions,” said Trotta. “You’ll want to join our family early, because once the word gets out, it’s going to grow fast!”

Local Children’s Advocate Honored with Tree of Love Dedication

Out2News.com

STUART -“Her legacy will keep going.”

These were the words of Phil Harvey, husband of community leader and children’s advocate Ollie Harvey, during the recent presentation to place her name on the Anne M. and Joel L. Pearl Tree of Love, a memorial painting displayed in the Mayes Center on Treasure Health’s Stuart campus. The hand-painted canvas, generously donated by the Pearls, allows community members to establish a lasting tribute to loved ones while aiding Treasure Health Grief Support, which provides grief counseling to anyone in Martin and St. Lucie counties who has experienced the loss of a loved one.

Throughout her life, Ollie Harvey, who passed away in August after a stroke, was an advocate for those who needed it most. Working as a social worker for 30 years, Harvey saw a need in the community when children were falling through the gaps for vital services.

“She worked 30 years as a social worker so she knew where there were holes in the system,” said Phil Harvey. “We saw the need. We wanted to make a difference and Building Bridges was born.”

The Harveys founded Building Bridges to Youth, Inc. in the early 2000s to provide outreach programs to children in East Stuart. To this day, the organization offers after-school activities, mentoring and summer programs, dress for success tips and interviewing skills and even provides nutritious meals to children in need. Building Bridges goes beyond immediate need in an attempt to build a brighter future for kids. The organization’s mentoring program introduces children to business professionals, retired law enforcement officers, teachers, and others in the community. One of those professionals was local artist Brenda Leigh, who painted the Tree of Love that now bears a lovely hand-painted flower with Ollie Harvey’s name.

“We gave the children the opportunity to see and be connected to an artist,” said Phil Harvey. “Now she is not just someone who paints to them but a professional they are connected to and can put a face to.”

Brenda Leigh accompanied both Phil Harvey and Anne and Joe Pearl in reflection as Phil tearfully placed her handiwork in its chosen spot among other names honored on the beautiful mural. Family friends Eula Clarke and Helen Quintana joined Treasure Health President and CEO Susan de Cuba along with other Treasure Health staff members at the presentation honoring Ollie Harvey.

The delicate pink flower with Ollie Harvey’s name is not only a tribute to her legacy of support for children in the community but it also represents how she is helping Treasure Health Grief Support serve families today. The program supports individuals and families navigate their grief journey, giving them the assistance and guidance they need to find hope and healing after experiencing the loss of a loved one. In addition to individual and group grief counseling sessions, Treasure Health offers Camp Good Grief for children, crisis support in schools and in the community as well as other outreach efforts at no cost to those receiving services.

To learn more about the Tree of Love or other ways to honor a loved one and support Treasure Health services in the community, call 772.403.4500 or visit treasurehealth.org/ways-to-give.

Channel Your Inner Pilot With an Audi Stuart Air Show
Flight Experience & Celebrate Those “Flight Wings” With VIP UPGRADES

Out2News.com

STUART — The 2017 Audi Stuart Air Show is just three weeks away from takeoff. And, for those of you who have secretly dreamed of being a Top Gun pilot, cross that adventure off your bucket list by flying high above the air show action in a vintage aircraft or military helicopter.

Over the three-day air show (Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017) several exclusive and limited opportunities will literally put you in the pilot’s seat, when you reserve a thrilling, once-in-a-lifetime ride in one of the following aircraft:

Cobra Attack Helicopter. Both standard (6-7 minutes) and extended (13-14 minute) flights available Saturday and Sunday between 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and throughout the day.

UH-1 Huey Helicopter. One of the most recognizable and iconic helicopters in history! Flights are 8-10 minutes; available Saturday and Sunday between 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., and throughout the day.

T-6 Texan. Fly like the ‘aces of yester-year’ in this classic fighter-trainer of World War II. Flights are available between 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. and after 4 p.m., both Saturday and Sunday. Two ‘instructional’ flight options are also available: a pattern-only-flight, lasting for 15 minutes, and an aerobatic flight, lasting for 20-30 minutes.

Don’t let the fun stop there-celebrate your “flight wings” with a VIP ticket upgrade ranging from special Spectator Seating on the show line ($8/day per person upgrade), to shaded seating in the Heineken Beer Garden, which includes two complimentary beers ($25/ day per person upgrade) or entry into the Florida Craft Beer Experience, featuring show-line seating and unique and delicious craft beers-two complimentary-hosted by brewery representatives from Walking Tree and Tequesta Brewing Company ($25/day per person upgrade), or access to the Bombers Squadron sponsored by CenterState Bank, providing great views of the action from show line seating, lunch, adult beverages and soda ($60/day per person upgrade).

The air show’s traditional Friday Night air show, complete with a crowd-pleasing firework spectacular, sponsored by Ron Rowars, Trial Attorney, and twilight aerobatics is always a sell-out. Grab those tickets before they are gone to the show or treat your friends and family to show line Spectator Seating ($8 per person) or the highly popular TDBank sponsored Dirty Flight Suit Party, complete with a buffet dinner, complimentary beer and wine, live entertainment, and a premier viewing for the night time flight action. Besides offering the best seats in the house, at this “Top Gun” party, you’ll mix and mingle with the performers and pilots of the show, as well as the air show sponsors, supporters and other aviation aficionados. Dirty Flight Suit Party tickets are $115 per person and include general admission to Friday Night’s air show.

Standard pre-purchase ticket options are $5 for veterans/military (military ID required) and children 6-12 (5 and under free), $15 for children 13+ and adults. Tickets at the gate will be $25 (age 13+) and $5 for veterans/military (military ID required). Premium parking is $20.

Mimi McCallum’s Art Reflection

Out2martincounty.com

Through my art I aspire to capture moments in time that relate to memories that touch our hearts. I aspire to create images of objects, places and figures with pleasing shapes and energetic color.

My “people stories” are paintings including figure in them. This is a subject I enjoy painting. My people are All People and an experience we can share. The “At the Beach” series provides glimpses of sensual and relaxing times that are the beach. The beach offers a refuge from the routine and mundane. The figures enjoy the warm sun, the wind blowing their hair, umbrellas, towels, sand in their toes and the beauty of the ocean.

Stuart — Last evening The Martin County Healthy Start Coalition (Healthy Start), a non-profit organization that offers support and education to pregnant women, presented the 2016 edition of Dancing with the Martin Stars to a sold out audience at the Lyric Theatre.

This signature fundraiser pairs well-known members of the community with professional dance instructors who trained with them on a dance routine performed in front of a live audience at the Lyric Theatre.

The community stars included:

Randy Pennington & Megan Acosta

Rosi Shepard & Craig Galvin

John Gonzalez & Marianella Tobar

Misty Moody & Bob Murray

Brian Moriarty & Holly Perle

Liz Bishop & Armando Vega Perez

In addition to learning challenging choreography and performing on stage in front of the sold out crowd, the community stars were also tasked with raising funds for Healthy Start. While the cast is excited to get onstage and compete to win the Best Performance category, there is also an award category for the fundraising portion. These scores are then combined to determine the overall winner of the event. To date, Dancing with the Martin Stars has raised nearly $470,000 and this evening’s total was $165,850 which has been and will be used to pay for services and programs for pregnant women and families with newborns in Martin County.

SEPTEMBER 23rd HONOR FLIGHT READY TO CELEBRATE
82 LOCAL WWII & KOREAN WAR VETERANS

Stuart, FL (September 17, 2017) Alarm clocks will be set very early the morning of September 23rd for 22 WWII veterans and 60 Korean War veterans who will be flown from Palm Beach International Airport to Washington, DC for a day of honor. This September flight is the third of four scheduled trips for 2017 organized by Southeast Florida Honor Flight. Every Honor Flight is designed to bring local veterans to Washington, DC to visit and reflect at the memorials built to honor their service and sacrifices.

After a 4:30am check-in of veterans, their guardians and Honor Flight staff, all will board the chartered American Airlines Airbus 321 and head for Washington, DC. The group will visit, via four police-escorted motor coaches, the U.S. Marine Memorial (Iwo Jima), Arlington National Cemetery for the Changing of the Guard Ceremony, the World War II Memorial and the Korean War Memorial.

The September 23rd trip is made up of 82 veterans who served during WWII and the Korean War from these military branches: Army (41), Air Force/Army Air Corps (13), Marines (6), Navy (21), and Merchant Marines (1). Just a few of the wartime positions represented are: B-24 aviator, instructor pilot, shipboard radio operator, clerk typist, radio repairman, B-24 navigator, aviation ordinance, air crew, gunner’s mate, cannoneer, rifleman, communications sergeant, B-17 aircraft mechanic, infantryman, diesel machinist, fireman, tactical instructor, Sherman tank driver and carpenter.

Through an Honor Flight, veterans are remembered, thanked and honored for their service and sacrifices, no matter what part of the mission they served. They were called when their nation needed them most and, as most every veteran states, they did what they had to do. Most of them remember, uncannily, almost every detail and date of their service. Here are just a few memories from some of the September 23rd veterans:

· Robert Dimmitt of Hobe Sound, US Navy, will also celebrate his 97th birthday the day of the September 23rd flight. He served in WWII as a B-24 pilot and was shot down in the South Pacific. He also served in the Korean War and the Vietnam War.

· Jerome Winsten of Boca Raton, US Merchant Marines, a radio operator on freighters that carried ammunition, tanks, aircraft and food to Europe remembers being attacked by German submarines.

· Joseph Kistler of Vero Beach, US Army, served in the Battle of the Bulge and still feels the bitter cold and wet conditions in fox holes.

· Bernard Dunetz of West Palm Beach, Army Air Corps, recollects bombing runs as a B-24 navigator during the invasion of Leyte Gulf.

· Edward Fitzgerald of Port St. Lucie, US Navy, remembers attacks from enemy planes and submarines as he served as an armed guard on cargo ships carrying supplies throughout the European and Pacific theaters.

· Alvin Lesser of Boca Raton, US Army, fought his way through France and Germany, and remembers being strafed by enemy aircraft.

· Rolland Gaudreau of Port St. Lucie, US Army, fought six straight months as a rifleman on the Korean War’s main line of resistance, helping back up the Marine forces on Mount Baldy and is thankful to have come home alive.

· William Davis of Stuart, Army Air Corps, remembers his air base being bombed by enemy planes on D-Day.

· Boris Kushnir of Boynton Beach, US Army, part of the 3rd Division that invaded North Korea, was wounded by a missile to his thigh.

· Allan Clements of Riviera Beach, US Navy, fought throughout the Phillipines, was hit by a kamikaze and his ship took down two torpedo planes.

· John Battaglia of Boynton Beach, US Army, served as a medic on the DMZ in Korea, where they had to boil needles and triage soldiers to send to M.A.S.H. units.

These brave men served in the United States, and all over the globe, and many participated in major battles such as the D-Day Invasion, Guadalcanal, the Battle of Okinawa, the Battle of Leyte, Porkchop Hill, Punchbowl, Old Baldy and the Choisin Resevoir.

In Honor Flight tradition, the public can show how they remember these veterans by attending the “Operation Homecoming” at Palm Beach International Airport, the evening of September 23rd to welcome home the veterans from their day of honor.

Operation Homecoming is an emotional event for both the veterans and the crowd. Hundreds of people from the local community, including members of the military, community and civic groups, family and friends, gather in the airport, awaiting the veterans’ arrival to give them a true welcome home, a welcome that most never received years ago. The veterans receive hundreds of grateful handshakes, topping off a day that most veterans say is one of the best days of their lives.

Signs of thanks, flags, cheers and handshakes are encouraged. Operation Homecoming takes place at Palm Beach International Airport, Level 2, Concourse A/B. The Honor Flight will arrive at PBIA at 7:20PM. Early arrival is recommended. Please come be part of a heart-warming evening!

For more information on Operation Homecoming, please call 1-855-FLYAVET (855-359-2838).

As no accessible official veteran database exists with the federal government, Southeast Florida Honor Flight relies on word of mouth, public education via presentations and civic and veteran groups to find WWII and Korean War veterans to sign up for their Honor Flight. If you are, or if you know of a WWII or Korean War veteran who would like to take their Honor Flight (and has not already done so), please either call 1-855-FLYAVET (855-359-2838) or fill out the veteran application online at www.honorflightsefl.org. Southeast Florida Honor Flight is now taking veteran applications from Vietnam veterans, who will become the next group of veterans to be honored.

Honor Flight also always needs guardians—trip escorts for the veterans- for the four flights per year. For those interested, please visit www.honorflightsefl.org and complete the online guardian application. It is an extremely meaningful day for both guardian and veteran.

Southeast Florida Honor Flight, along with the 133 other hubs in the nationwide Honor Flight Network, is dedicated to flying America’s veterans to their respective memorials in Washington, DC, free of charge to the veteran. Southeast Florida Honor Flight is based in Stuart, FL and serves Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin, Okeechobee and Palm Beach Counties. With America’s WWII and Korean War veterans now in their later years of life, Honor Flight is truly in a race against time to honor these veterans by bringing them to see their memorials, especially the WWII memorial, which was not completed until 2004. Top priority continues to be given to WWII veterans and terminal veterans of any war.

The next scheduled Honor Flight for Southeast Florida Honor Flight is October 28th.

Our Ocean And Coastal Ecosystems
Are Of the Utmost Importance

Out2News.comBy: Mark Perry

We should do everything we can, individually and collectively, to stop the pollution and destruction of our oceans and the planet where we live.

The ocean holds 98 percent of the water and provides 95 percent of the living space here on Earth. It is a home to many creatures, and is our life support system.

The ocean feeds billions of people around the world, it drives our climate, it absorbs heat and carbon dioxide and it produces 70 percent of the oxygen we breathe. Every breath we take and every drop we drink depends on a healthy ocean. Every life here on Earth depends on the ocean and now, the ocean’s life depends on every one of us.

There are many threats to our ocean, but our largest concern is related to an increase in the Earth’s temperature.

The ocean regulates the earth’s temperature, with roughly 90 percent of climate heating being absorbed by the ocean. This leads to an increase in ocean temperature, which impacts both the delicate health of organisms such as coral reefs, as well as increasing the ocean volume by thermal expansion and causing a physical rise in sea level.

We are causing the global changes to our atmosphere and the ocean. Since 1970 ocean temperatures have increased by 1 degree, and since 1950, the sea level has risen 7.5 inches.

More disturbingly, since 1993 the rate of sea level rise has accelerated to roughly twice as fast as the long-term trends have predicted. We are now on track for forecasted sea level rise to reach 20 inches by 2050 and 60 inches by 2100.

Our ocean also functions as a filter for our atmosphere by balancing and absorbing carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide concentrations in our atmosphere have risen 46% since 1950 due to the burning of fossil fuels. Human-generated CO2 emissions are currently 66 million tons per day and our ocean only absorbs 22 million tons per day.

We are out-producing the amount of carbon dioxide that can naturally be absorbed by the planet. Additionally, the carbon dioxide that is absorbed is saturating the ocean waters forming carbonic acid, a process called ocean acidification.

The historical pH of the ocean was 8.16 and has declined to 8.05, a 25 percent increase in acidity. Acidity levels in this range start to dissolve the shells of plankton, corals, oysters, clams, shrimp, crabs and lobsters.

We must take action now for the future of Florida’s ocean and coastal environments and for our ocean planet.

We must stop the land-based activities that are directly polluting our ocean and coastal waters.

We must significantly reduce and ultimately stop our emission of carbon dioxide and similar greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

We must invest in and support the growing economy of innovative renewable, clean energy companies in the United States and around the world.

Here in the US we produce 3.8 billion tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year. Rather than leaving the Paris Climate Agreement, we should be leading the initiative to reduce CO2 and protect our planet, preserving our environment for life in the future.

Let’s do everything we can, individually and collectively, to stop the pollution and destruction of our oceans and the planet where we live. We must all work to increase awareness and inspire stewardship of our living ocean and coastal ecosystems.

Mark D. Perry is executive director of Florida Oceanographic Society.

The Stuart Rotary Charitable Foundation in partnership with the City of Stuart hosted the 1st Annual Mayors Gala Dinner & Dance on Thursday, at Mariner Sands Golf and Country Club.

The attendees celebrated past Stuart Mayors and City accomplishments, with proceeds benefiting “The Distinguished Services Memorial” to be dedicated in Memorial Park on Memorial Day.

The “Premier Sponsor” was C. Wayne York, retired First Executive Director of the YMCA and a Rotarian for 35 years. “Being a sponsor for this event has given me the opportunity to express my deepest appreciation to some of the people who were most helpful in getting the YMCA started here on the Treasure Coast. I am happy to also support the Stuart Rotary Charitable Foundation and the many community projects it funds.”

The Distinguished Services Memorial sculpture, created by Eduardo Gomez Rojas, was unveiled at the event, with Jim Chrulski, Community Services Director for the City of Stuart as Master of Ceremonies. The sculpture will be placed at the base of the flag pole in Memorial Park to commemorate Distinguished Service nominees.

The artist described his thought process at the Gala as “These are the hands of a West Point graduate soldier holding his father’s flag.” This will remind residents and visitors as they enter the park of the sacrifices made to ensure our freedom.

Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace in the world. Rotary was the first service organization in the world. There are approximately 1.2 million Rotary members and about 30,000 clubs in 190 countries.

What Are We Doing to Protect Our Oceans?

Out2News.comBy: Vincent Encomio

We are currently celebrating Oceans Month at Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center, a time for us to honor and reflect upon our oceans, their health and their value to us.

To put the importance of our oceans in perspective, we can start by looking out to space. Much of the planetary research has focused on finding the existence or at least previous existence of water on other planets in our solar system.

Why is that important? Because the presence of water points to the potential for the existence of life. And if water is key to supporting life, then our oceans, containing 97 percent of the Earth’s water and covering 70 percent of the surface of the planet, are critical to our survival on this planet.

We are able to breathe because of our oceans (70 percent of the world’s oxygen is produced by marine plants).

Our climate is regulated by the ocean.

We are fed by the ocean.

But the oceans are in peril. Climate change is pushing the ocean’s capacity to regulate our climate. Fisheries are depleted. And pollution, especially plastics, is now found in the most remote areas of the ocean.

What are we doing to help protect and conserve our oceans? At Florida Oceanographic, we are trying to do our part by, first, looking outside our front door. The ocean is but a stone’s throw away from us, and so are two estuaries (the St. Lucie River and the Indian River Lagoon) that feed into the ocean, connecting land with the ocean and serving as the nurseries of the sea.

These bodies of water simultaneously represent the good and the bad phenomena associated with their connectivity.

The good are: the biological diversity and the bounty it has yielded for us; the waterways are useful for transport and commerce; the recreational opportunities afforded by living so close to waterways that connect with the ocean.

The bad are: the over-fishing of that bounty; the many artificial connections made in the attempt to expand transport and commerce — leading to excessive freshwater and nutrients in our estuary and ocean — and our overuse and alterations to these waters and their shorelines in our attempt to live in, but not with, such a beautiful and wondrous place.

So what do we do? What can we do?

We build oyster reefs, plant sea grass, mangroves and other native plants and monitor water quality and coastal habitats. But more importantly, we do those things with the community. At Florida Oceanographic Society, our goal is to take actions that not only help restore and conserve our ocean’s precious resources, but engage and directly involve our community in those efforts.

We hope each action taken not only results in our oceans being left in a better state, but that the people who helped us learned something new about why that action was important; and that they will, in turn, be inspired to take another action (for example, clean a beach, recycle, teach someone else what they learned, vote, etc.) that will ultimately lead to a cleaner, healthier ocean.

So on World Oceans Day on June 8, we celebrated every action, great or small, that helps restore and improve our oceans. That seagrass you planted or that oyster shell you dropped in the water causes a ripple that builds and builds into a wave of inspiration across our community and beyond.

Vincent Encomio is director of scientific research and conservation at Florida Oceanographic Society in Stuart.

Stuart Air Show Gearing Up For 2017

Out2News.com

New performers, attractions, ticket options; over $25,000 benefits Treasure Coast charitable partners in 2016

STUART, FL (April 24, 2017) — Planning of the 2017 Stuart Air Show is well underway and show organizers are thrilled to announce this year’s performers, new attractions, and ticket options, as well as celebrate the positive impact Air Show proceeds generated for its 2016 charitable partners.

This year’s premier act is Screamin’ Sasquatch, sponsored by Jack Links, a 1929 Taperwing Waco bi-plane with a jet engine that allows the plane to fly vertically, flip, tumble, and hammerhead torque roll, which is flown by one of the top aerobatic performance pilots in America, Lt. Col. John Klatt. Just a teaser–Sasquatch will have special meaning at this year’s show. Details to come!

Other new performers and attractions for 2017 include:

Jacquie B. The first female pilot to enter the aerobatic arena at the age of 50, and the first female solo pilot to perform at the 2010 Al Ain Aerobatic Show in the United Arab Emirates, Jacquie performs in a bright red Extra 300 two-seat, tandem, mid-wing aerobatic monoplane sprinkled with silver iridescent stars. Her show combines maneuvers as simple as a pull to vertical flight to the most difficult end-over-end gyroscopic tumbling an airplane can pull off.

Batcopter and Bat Mobile. Loved by all ages wherever it goes, this crime fighting helicopter flew and was filmed in the original 1966 BATMAN movie and the original television series BATMAN. Capt. Eugene A. Nock, A.T.P., has fully restored this nostalgic flying machine to complete airworthy condition and it appears at air shows, state fairs, special events and comic book events around the United States. Definitely not to be missed!

Wild Blue Rodeo. Jerry “Jive” Kerby, a retired U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, will perform a special night-time dedication to first responders on Friday evening in Wild Blue, a RV-8A that wants to be a fighter jet. The performance combines music, lights and aerobatic maneuvers.

U.S. Army Black Daggers. The official U.S. Army Special Operations Command Parachute Demonstration Team, the Black Daggers are a team of highly-skilled staff noncommissioned officers who perform free fall parachute demonstrations worldwide, completing an average of 1,250 practice and performance jumps every year. Audiences can expect smoke grenades, pyrotechnics and flags during the team’s demonstrations.

AeroShell. This five-man AT-6 Texan Advanced Trainer unit are real crowd-pleasers and has performed before at the Stuart Air Show. The North American AT-6 Texan, nicknamed “The Pilot Maker” first appeared in 1938, originally as a basic trainer for the U.S. Army Air Corps, and was also the primary training platform for all U.S. Airmen in World War II that went on to fly other fighter aircraft, such as the P-51 Mustang, F4U corsair, P-40 Warhawk and others.

Returning performers and attractions include:

U.S. Navy Leap Frogs. The official parachute demonstration team of the United States Navy. The team is part of the United States Naval Special Warfare Command, and is made up of active-duty Navy SEALs, Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen (SWCC) and support personnel.

U.S. Air Force F16 Viper Team and U.S. Navy F18 – Hornet Demo Team. These air combat comand demonstration teams perform precision aerial maneuvers to demonstrate the unique capabilities of these multi-role fighters. They are fast and they are loud, and crowds love them!

Chefpitts. This Stuart, FL based pilot, Clemens Kuhlig, flies a Pitts S1S, built in a garage over a three-year period while he was working as a professional chef—hence the name “Chefpitts”! The show Clemens performs is inspired by the pilots he watched as a kid. Jim Parker, The Red Devils, Leo Loudenslager, Al Hauff, Art Scholl, the French Connection. The Pitts Special is an iconic airplane that lends itself well to beautiful rolling, curving lines, snap rolls, and excellent outside capability.

Redline Airshows. An exciting two-ship formation aerobatic flight team that thrills crowds with a display of skill, nerve and showmanship. Pilots Ken Rieder and Jon Thocker have been flying formation together for more than 12 years. They proudly claim “Redline…the goal…not the limit.”

Greg Shelton Airshows. Made up of the father-daughter team of Greg Shelton and Ashley Shelton, Ashley defies gravity and flies on the wing of a colorful and patriotic decorated bi-wing Boeing 450 Super Stearman piloted by her father.

Not Just A Routine Traffic Stop!

Out2News.com

Article by: Robin Hall – Out2News

Port St. Lucie – You know that feeling in your stomach when you see those lights flashing behind you when a cop is pulling you over? Yup! That’s the one!

Today on U.S. Federal Highway I in Port St Lucie, I had that happen to me, I had that feeling in my stomach and I wasn’t even driving! Coming back from the Fort Pierce Women’s Club driving home. The officer pulled my friend over.

She knew right away what the problem was,she had just purchased her new license plate the day before but had not put it on because she did not have a screwdriver!

The officer came over to her window and ask for her license, insurance, etc., which she gave him. She asked him if she was being pulled over because the plate was out-of-date (yesterday). The officer replied, “yes.” She told him that the plate was in the car and he asked her to show it to him, which she did.

He then went back to his cruiser and came back with a screwdriver started putting her new license plate on her car. That was too cool! I own Out2News a local online newspaper in St. Lucie County so I thought this is way too cool for this officer to do this, so I asked him if I could take a photo. I took the photo of the “Good Samitarian” act of kindness the Port St.Lucie officers’ name is B. Cuevas. There were four of us in the car before everything was done we were all out of the car thanking the officer and his back up officer B. Saliba, for doing such a good deed. So, you see don’t always need to think that you are getting pulled over and it’s going to be a awful experience, sometimes it’s just too cool.

Thank you once again to the Port St. Lucie Police Department for the kindness and thoughtfulness to four crazy ladies on a Friday afternoon!

Humane Society’s Pet Therapy Teams
Make Friends At Lyric Theatre

Out2news.com

PALM CITY —  The Lyric Theatre and the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast recently formed the perfect partnership: A dog-related show called Mutts Gone Nuts and volunteers from Misty’s Pals, the HSTC’s pet therapy group.

The volunteers greeted guests in the lobby before two shows and attracted the affection of kids and adults alike. The pet therapy volunteers were Mary Christopher and her dog Kate; Christine Apted and Maggie; Joe and Nancy Wertheim and Karma; Laurie Volpe and Luke, Nancy Bowden and Sydney; Joan Hewitt and Lilli; and Joan Dutton and Sparticus.

“The Lyric was thrilled to have the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast’s pet therapy group greeting our patrons,” said Lyric Theatre Executive Director Kia Fontaine. “It was a perfect partnership as the amazing canine performers of Mutts Gone Nuts are all adopted from shelters and rescues. The creators, Scott and Joan Houghton, are dedicated to spreading the positive message of animal rescue and adoption.”

Jessie Clifford, the shelter’s humane education director, echoed Fontaine’s sentiments.

“This type of partnership is representative of our community outreach and we thank The Lyric Theatre for giving us this opportunity,” she said. “Our pet therapy volunteers visit nursing homes and assisted living facilities, participate in our Paws to Read program, where kids read with a dog at their side, and much more.”

The HSTC’s humane education department also offers shelter tours and obedience and agility classes to the public and organizes a number of educational programs. For more information, visit the website, http:www.hstc1.org.

Woman’s Club of Stuart to Support Local S.P.A.M Team

Out2News.comOut2News.com

Stuart — Our fundraising has enabled the Woman’s Club of Stuart to support our local S.P.A.M Team with $2,000 this year. As a sponsor, they have shared the following update with us that you may enjoy reading:

Our students submitted entries for the FedEx Innovation Challenge to compete for $5000. We were required to post our responses to 4 challenges to Instagram or Twitter. Some of the scoring is based on the number of LIKES or RETWEETS we can get. So we are asking you, and your friends, and your acquaintances, and anyone else you can think of to please go to @FRC180 on Twitter and LIKE or RETWEET our 4 tweets. You can’t miss them. They each contain the hashtags #fedexcontest, #OMGRobots, and #FRC180.

The Martin County Fair starts this Friday and runs through the following weekend. S.P.A.M. is an integral part of the Science Center activities and once again we will be there with our robots sharing the exciting message of the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math in our lives. We have made wonderful friends from throughout the community as a result of our presence there each year. SPAM will be leading all kinds of STEM activities including a LEGO building contest. We hope you will stop by and lend your support when you visit the fair.

And right next door to our booth this year will be a new addition to the fair, the Small Bots of Mass Destruction. This exciting tournament is brought to us by our very own alumnus, mentor, coach and sponsor Kurt Durjan and the Treasure Coast Maker Space. The two-day event begins on Saturday, 2/11. So please be sure to add Kurt to your list of “must see” booths.

Work continues at the Pit–two more weeks until STOP BUILD DAY (2/21). If you want to see the robot in its pre-production stage or you want to see drive team practice or you want to see our busy Pit in action, stop by. We’re there every weeknight from 6:30-8 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m. You can reach out to us through this email address if you need help with directions.

Finally, we want to THANK YOU for your support as sponsors this year. Some of you have been with us for many, many years and we can’t thank you enough for your continued financial and in-kind support and encouragement. We have a BIG team once again this year (77 at last count) and as always, travel costs make up the bulk of our budget. We couldn’t do this without you. In addition, we sent out an urgent request for funds for a new trailer last week and we’re pleased to announce that you answered the call. Thank you to this generous community. We’re almost ready to GO MAKE YOU PROUD when we leave for our first regional tournament on March 9-11 in Orlando. This year’s game, called FIRST STEAMworks, is once again challenging and interesting. We can’t wait. Thanks for making it all possible.

Funds raised by the Woman’s Club provide college scholarships for senior girls at Martin County public high schools. This year, $26,000 in scholarships were awarded, and during the past six years, $96,000 has been awarded to 23 high school students.

“Each year, we’ve been able to increase our scholarship support and we hope to do that again this year,” Ms. Pharo said. On the day of the tour, more than 100 Woman’s Club members will assist in the event, by volunteering as hostesses at the homes, directing traffic and organizing the reception.

The Woman’s Club of Stuart began 103 years ago, when Stuart was a new town. The club comprises women united by a dedication to community improvement through volunteer service.

Airspace, President Trump, and the Destiny of
Our St Luice River/Indian River Lagoon, SLR/IRL

Out2News.com

Stuart — Witham Air Field in Martin County is north, just outside of the circles….the circles that designate “No Fly Zones”during Presidient’s Trump’s return home today to Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach. Many Palm Beachers will be flying into Witham who can’t get into Palm Beach due to the flight restrictions. Perhaps as they pass through they will be learning about the vociferous but sleepy little town of Stuart, to their north, with the toxic water problems stemming from discharges from Lake Okeechobee?

Martin and Palm Beach counties have a long history. In fact, Martin County was formed of north Palm Beach County in 1925. Our destiny is connected…

Looking at the circles on the “Temporary Fly Restriction” map above, sent to my husband, reminded me of some other circles that are also causing a stir. Senate President Joe Negron’s proposed circles for land purchase in the EAA. I know you are familiar with that map! I hope President Trump reads the local paper while he’s here. Or maybe he’ll even get a chance to meet with the President of the Florida Senate?

As we know, in today’s world, anything can happen…

A “no fly” zone in a 1-mile radius. Commercial flights that normally would leave or arrive on a straight line from PBIA must instead angle north or south.

A ring of 10 nautical miles bars all private planes from landing at either PBIA or Lantana unless they came from a “gateway airport,” at which they’ve been screened by the Transportation Safety Administration. Any planes that land at Lantana can’t leave until Trump is gone.

A ring of 30 nautical miles allows only planes traveling to or from fields outside the 10 mile ring, all of those closely monitored by air traffic controllers.

Banned at Lantana during visits: all flight training, practice approaches, parachuting, and flights of aerobatic aircraft, gliders, seaplanes, ultralights, gliders and hang-gliders, balloons, and even crop-dusters. Also banned: banner-towing and sightseeing, maintenance test flights, model rockets and aircraft, utility and pipeline surveys and drones.

Okeechobee Landfill Eagle Rescue

Out2News.com

SCS Engineers Superintendent John Jones made an unexpected discovery during his work day at Okeechobee Landfill, Inc. John discovered an injured American bald eagle on the floor of a cell in the project area. With the help of friends from Arnold’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Center (AWRC), the young eagle was rescued and is now recovering at Arnold’s facility.

No one knows how the eagle became injured, but three eagles were observed earlier in the morning in what appeared to be territorial combat. The young bird had the good luck of being found by John and according to Sue Arnold, the founder of AWRC, “is on his way to a full recovery and will be released back into the wild.”

When asked if the eagle has been named, Sue Arnold said they don’t usually name the rescued animals because their ultimate goal is to rescue, rehabilitate, and return recovered animals to their natural habitat. She suggested, “call him ‘JJ’ since John took the time and effort to help us rescue the eagle, which is awesome.”

The south-central Waste Management Okeechobee landfill is certified by the National Wildlife Habitat Council with 2,000 of its 4,000 acres dedicated as a wildlife habitat. The site will soon become home again to the young eagle “JJ.”

Arnold’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, Inc., is a non-profit 501(c) educational-based wildlife care facility. The Center is dedicated to bringing people and wildlife together to develop a community awareness of the value of Florida wildlife.

Pictured are John Jones of SCS Engineers, Lisa Martin of AWRC, and JJ the rescued eagle.

Treasure Coast Super Moon

16-nov-big-moon-pt-2

Treasure Coast, Fl. — What is so super about tomorrow’s supermoon?

Last evening, a full moon occured that appears slightly larger and brighter than usual. The reason is that the Moon’s fully illuminated phase occurs within a short time from perigee – when the Moon is its closest to the Earth in its elliptical orbit.

Although the precise conditions that define a supermoon vary, yesterday’s supermoon will undoubtedly qualify because it was be the closest, largest, and brightest full moon in over 65 years.

One reason supermoons are popular is because they are so easy to see — you can just go outside at sunset and watch an impressive full moon rise!

Since perigee actually occured yesterday morning, last night’s full moon, visible starting at sunset, was impressive as advertised.

Pictured here, is a young lady and her optical illusion.

Given many definitions, at least one supermoon occurs each year, with another one coming next month (moon-th). However, a full moon will not come this close to Earth again until 2034

Stuart, FL – Hurricane Matthew left quite the mess for residents, businesses, and government officials throughout several states to clean up. With many focused on removing debris from their yards and public roadways, local beaches had not yet been addressed until Junior League of Martin County members hit Stuart Beach on Sunday, October 16 armed with trash bags, gloves, and an optimistic attitude.

“After the hurricane, I took my daughters to the beach to play and noticed a lot of garbage and other debris littering the sand,” said Brittany Holdy, JLMC Community Committee Chair. “Our beaches are so important ecologically and economically that I knew they needed to be cleaned up sooner rather than later. To help get the job done, the ladies of the Junior League of Martin County rallied to lead our post-hurricane local beach clean up efforts.”

League members and their families donned their sunscreen and JLMC red as they scoured the beach for several hours picking up trash from Styrofoam to bottle caps and cigarette butts to straws and plastic dishware.

“It was great to see so many helping hands cleaning up one of our local treasures,” said Samantha Kayser, a JLMC member. “Together we were able clean up a large section Stuart Beach in just a few short hours. League members are looking forward to cleaning up another beach in the near future.”

The Junior League of Martin County proudly celebrates 25 years promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. As our members embark on another year of serving the community, we are also taking this opportunity to reflect on the impact and success we have had over the last 25 years. The Junior League of Martin County is thankful to all of our supporters, community partners, and sponsors throughout the years, and hope we will have the opportunity to continue to partner together to tackle the issues facing our community and bring about everlasting change. For more information please feel free to visit our website: www.jlmcflorida.org; follow us on facebook; or email us at info@jlmcflorida.org.

Stuart — The Woman’s Club of Stuart began 103 years ago, when Stuart was a new town. The club comprises women united by a dedication to community improvement through volunteer service.

Mary Ellen Costa, chair of the Education Committee of the Woman’s Club of Stuart, reads to preschoolers every week at the Gertrude Walden Day Care Center, 601 SE Lake Street in Stuart.

The Garden Club Of Stuart’s

Flower Show And Garden Expo

Out2martincounty.com

In photo:   The Hydro-Stacker™, too cool!

Stuart — Close to 50 garden vendors display their beauty at Halpatiokee Park this weekend.

Along with the vendor displays were exhibits from the Martin County Schools Junior gardeners.

These vendors from all over the state are wholesalers assisting our local garden suppliers with sharing techniques and instructions on where and how the local home gardener can obtain the species seen at the Expo.

One of these vendors was Hydro-Fresh U-pick Farms and their “Hydro-Stacker” growing system.

Hydroponics is a revolutionary way to grow fruits and vegetables without the use of soil. Derived from the Greek words hydro (“water”) and ponos (“labor”) – hydroponics literally means “water working.” The Hydro-Stacker™ takes this technology one step further.

Easy to set up and use, the Hydro-Stacker™ is a tower of styrofoam pots filled with non-soil growing media. Drainage holes in the base of each pot create a filtration system, ensuring that the entire vertical stack receives the nutrients it needs. A base-swivel system allows the units to be rotated to achieve sun exposure for all of the plants.

The new Out2 is a photo journal featuring people, “Who they are, what they do and where they do it”. We also try where their “going” to do it.
