PALM CITY — George Denti, project manager, predicts that the Veterans Memorial Bridge will span the St. Lucie River by the end of October. Drivers will be using it by the Christmas shopping season — middle to late November. Then what? How will Palm City’s traffic change? John Haddox, PRSRT STD US POSTAGE PAID FORT PIERCE, FL PERMIT NO. 248

Martin County Commissioner, Palm City, wonders that a lot. “I keep asking and you would think you could get a minimum of a ballpark figure,” he said. “I have not had anybody give me any kind of figures, besides we have to wait to see.” Turns out that there’s a catch to asking about how the new bridge will affect traffic patterns. The requisite predictive studies looking at that question were done a decade ago, said Lisa Dykstra, plan-

Then there was a development no traffic study is designed to predict — the housing crash that hit Florida in full cry around 2008, along with the Great Recession. Those events put numerous question

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The paramount voice on Capitol Hill during an Oct. 3 congressional briefing on the toxic Indian River Lagoon came from a pint-sized, four-year-old Palm City resident clad in ruffles and polka dots with a teal satin bag filled with dead oysters from her backyard. Little Celia Traylor made a splash in Washington, D.C., as the smallest lagoon activist, who was able to make an indelible impression on the largest and most powerful lawmakers in the nation. In a poignant moment in the hallway of the Rayburn House office building, Celia approached U.S. House of Representatives Minority Speaker Nancy Pelo-

Obama invited to tour toxic river devastation Nicole Rodriguez Staff writer

nrodriguez@YourVoiceWeekly.com

WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Barack Obama was sent an official invitation last week to tour the discharge-ravaged Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie rivers. U.S. Reps. Patrick Murphy, D-Jupiter, and Trey Radel, R-Fort Myers drafted the letter on behalf of millions of Floridian families negatively affected by the Army Corps of Engineers’ discharges of freshwater from Lake Okeechobee, making good on a promise the pair made during an Oct. 3 Indian River Lagoon congressional briefing to persuade the president to see the toxic waterways. Both are still awaiting a presidential response. “During our discussion, which included the support of Minority Leader Pelosi, Minority Whip Hoyer, Chairman Bill Shuster and a majority of the Florida delegation, it became apparent that a visit by you to the affected areas may be the only way to give our neigh-

bors along the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie Rivers confidence that you intend to deliver on the federal government’s Everglades restoration promises,” the letter, dated Oct. 8 states. Murphy and Radel gave Obama a glimpse into how long the devastation has endured, writing the issue transcends party lines. “We invite you and members

of your administration to tour impacted areas and see how this environmental crisis, decades in the making, is devastating our families, neighbors, and communities,” both wrote. “Your administration’s attention to environmental issues leaves us with no doubt that once you bear witness to the destruction of our once thriving waterways you will be all-in with our efforts to prioritize real solutions.” “Even though we lack seniority, we cannot sit back and wait our turn to protect our communities,” the letter continues. “We think you can appreciate such boldness and desire to break through the polarization and gridlock of Washington. Our residents need our help.” It’s vital Obama sees the devastation firsthand, Murphy said in a telephone interview. “I think it’s like anything in life. Once you touch it and feel it, you get a different appreciation for it,” Murphy said.

Hoyer, Murphy tour devastated lagoon Nicole Rodriguez Staff writer

nrodriguez@YourVoiceWeekly.com

WEST PALM BEACH — After a Monday morning aerial tour of the Treasure Coast’s toxic waterways, U.S. House of Representatives Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said a presidential visit is in order. “I think it will be a useful visit for the president to visit South Florida,” Hoyer said from a private terminal at Palm Beach International airport. “South Florida is a very dynamic part of our country, a lot of people (live) here and I will suggest to the president and to Mr. McDonough, his chief of staff, that when they next come to Florida that they take a half an hour (tour) … to get a sense of the magnitude of the challenge and the immediacy of the challenge and the need to act.” Hoyer toured the area with U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Jupiter, in a South Florida Water Management helicopter. The flyover included the St. Lucie Inlet, Lake

Okeechobee, C-44 and the Herbert Hoover Dike. Hoyer, who is dealing with similar pollution problems in the Chesapeake Bay in his home district, expressed dismay at the sight of the dark and dirty plume of water that has infiltrated the Treasure Coast. “If you look at the Susquehanna River up my way, there’s a plume coming out of there. It’s a very similar kind of thing,” Hoyer said. “You know that that plume is bad news. Bad news for the Chesapeake Bay, bad news for (Treasure Coast) residents and for the fish, for recreation, for all the things that make Florida such a wonderful asset to our country.” “Florida is a national resource, the Everglades a national resource, and so it’s incumbent upon us at the federal level to work in partnership with states and localities,” Hoyer said. “One of the critical things is having a member who will bring the local problem, which I don’t see every day, to the attention of federal officials and very frankly, Patrick Murphy has been extraordinarily successful in doing that. That’s

Mitch Kloorfain/chief photographer Congressman Patrick Murphy and Martin County Commissioner Sarah Heard listen as U.S. House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer offers his own assessment of the state of our local water ways following a helicopter tour of the Indian River Lagoon Monday, Oct. 14. Congressman Murphy encouraged Hoyer to see the debilitated lagoon first hand before the two returned to Washington, D.C., to work on the issues of the government shutdown. why I’m here.” Hoyer pledged to share the Treasure Coast’s plight with his colleagues on Capitol Hill. “Patrick’s given me this opportunity to come down here and see the vastness of the challenge that confronts South Florida,” Hoyer said. “It’s very important so that when I go back I talk to my colleagues, I talk to the leadership on both sides of the aisle because this is not a partisan problem, this is not a Republican problem or a Democratic problem, this is a Floridian’s problem, an American’s problem.” With the rainy season coming to a close later this month, now is not the time to waiver in the fight for clean water, Murphy said. “We can’t lose sight of this just

because we’re entering the dry season. Next year there will be another rainy season and we could have the same issues again,” Murphy said. “So we can’t take our foot off the gas. We’ve got to keep this drumbeat going in Congress and ensure everyone knows how important projects like CERP and CEPP and C-44 (are).” “It’s not going to happen overnight. There’s no silver bullet to solve this, but piece by piece, if we look at all these solutions, whether it’s water farming, fixing the dike, whether it’s (improving) C-44 (canal), we’ll be able to make a difference and help out

si, D-Calif., to show the veteran congresswoman just how grim conditions on the St. Lucie River have become. Celia presented Pelosi with a once vibrant oyster that would clean up to 50 gallons of river water per day to keep the waterway in pristine shape. It is now dry, cracked and dead. “I’m going to keep this on my desk,” Pelosi promised as she embraced Celia. Pelosi, who attended the hearing, hosted by Reps. Patrick Murphy, D-Jupiter, and Trey Radel, R-Fort Myers, said the close to 200 Treasure Coast “River Warriors” caught her attention. “It’s really important to come the distance that these people came to know how important their mobilization of coming is and that they will be heard. We appreciate and understand the value of what they’ve come here to do.” The plight facing the lagoon, which has been inundated with dirty freshwater from Army Corps discharges for months now, is not just a Florida problem, Pelosi said. “This is not even an issue. It’s a value. It’s about protecting this beautiful God given planet, God’s creation,” Pelosi said. “…It really is a national and global issue in terms of the environmental impact.” Pelosi also praised Murphy for his tireless work to save the lagoon. “He’s a very talented new member committed to working in a bipartisan way for the good of his community,” Pelosi said. “This is a big challenge that he had to face almost immediately and he’s risen to the occasion.” Celia’s mother, K.C. Traylor, was proud of her young daughter who approached Pelosi amid a media crush. “We just happened to be out in the hallway when (Pelosi) came out. I feel very honored that we can actually highlight (this

problem.) This needs to be fixed for these kids,” Traylor said. “We need every congressman and congresswoman, Republicans and Democrats, to fix this for the kids so they’re not up here in 40 years still asking for the discharges to stop.” Traylor said her daughter’s oysters are physical proof of the destruction the discharges are causing. “She brought these today as a symbol of what we’re losing,” Traylor said. Shortly after the meeting’s conclusion, Celia walked the yard of the Capitol Building, chanting, “Save the river” and “When are you going to stop this?” The Traylors have called Palm City home for nearly Celia’s lifespan. They previously lived in Michigan, where K.C. Traylor said the water is clean and clear straight to the seafloor. “I live on Bessey Creek and I see what these discharges are doing to it,” Traylor said. “It’s very important for me to involve my daughter even though she’s only 4.” “I don’t want her to be my age, having to come up here and ask the same question.” Celia used to spend her summer days at the sandbar, a routine trip she has been forced to cease because of the coffee-colored water that can sicken her. For now, Celia can only gaze at the river from behind her home’s glass window, wistful that she’ll be able to frolic in the water one day. “It’s been devastating. Life has been gone. It’s like a dead river. It really is,” Traylor said. “You don’t see fish jumping anymore, mullet, birds don’t fly down anymore, I don’t see manatee in there anymore. I’ve found dead crabs on the side of the river.” “These discharges have been going on long enough and it’s time we start fixing the problem,” Traylor said. Asked what needs to be done about the Indian River Lagoon, Celia simply said, “Save it.”

www.YourVoiceWeekly.com “I am very terrified to hear about the toxic algae that is going on at the Indian River Lagoon, in Stuart, Florida and this is upsetting to me.”

OBAMA from page 5 The congressman is hopeful Obama will treat the toxic water as a priority. “If we are chosen, I think we’ll have a much better chance of getting that funding going forward for projects like C-44, C-43 (canals) or the Tamiami Trail, strengthening the Herbert Hoover Dike. Those are all key projects.” Murphy also included several hand-written letters from area students. “I am very terrified to hear about the toxic algae that is going on at the Indian River Lagoon, in Stuart, Florida and this is upsetting to me,” Janessa Kloorfain, a fourth-grade student at J.D.

Okeechobee has toxic algae and all the sea creatures are dying and people are getting sick,” Wilberto wrote. “Manatees could get sick and even die.” Humans have been gravely affected as well, he wrote. “People won’t be able to eat fish because we could eat infected fish … we won’t be able to swim in the water.” Murphy said the inclusion of student letters will hopefully strike a chord with the president. “I wanted to include the students because that’s why we’re doing this. It’s all about the future,” Murphy said. “A big part, at least for me, why I care so much about the environment is not only do I enjoy it, but I want it to be there and I want my children and grandchildren to be able to enjoy it as did I growing up.”

Dual enrollment becomes duel enrollment

GRAND OPENING

decorators finest

Patrick McCallister Staff writer

pmccallister@YourVoiceWeekly.com

MARTIN COUNTY — Dual enrollment has become duel enrollment. For the first time since the educational program to help youths earn college credits for free started in Florida, school districts are paying for dual-enrolled students at state colleges this year. Parent Michael DiTerlizzi loves dual enrollment. It’s helped his family afford college. But, Martin County School Board member Michael DiTerlizzi, Palm City, has soured on it since the Florida Legislature made the change during its last 60-day session. Now there’s a lurking variable in the district’s expenses. “They’ve basically given the college system a signature line on our checks,” he said. Martin students in dual enrollment attend one to a semester full of classes at Indian River State College. DiTerlizzi’s daughter, Danielle, graduated from the program with an associate’s degree a couple years ago. “She was one of four Martin County students to graduate with an associate’s degree that year,” he said. “It was great. It didn’t cost us anything.” DiTerlizzi’s son, Domenic, is also in dual enrollment. “My son is dual enrolled in one class,” he said. “I don’t believe he should be dual-enrolled.” As a parent, DiTerlizzi wants the best for his son, and trusts the guidance advice his son gets

at Martin County High School. As a school board member, he knows Domenic’s class at IRSC costs the district $71.98 a credit. That’s less than an off-thestreet student would pay, and is based on an agreement reached between the district and IRSC. Still, it’s $71.98 that the district has no choice but to pay. DiTerlizzi said state law mandates that if a student qualifies for and wants dual enrollment, he or she gets it. The district can’t turn off the financial faucet at any point. That creates a conundrum, because state laws require districts to have balanced budgets, limits what they can collect in property taxes, and punishes them for going below certain levels in reserves. All that requires careful, exact budgeting, DeTerlizzi said. “How do I do that if I don’t know the numbers?” he said. “I don’t know how many students are going to dual-enroll. I don’t know what the cost of the textbooks is going to be.” At press time, the district couldn’t give Your Voice News & Views a count of dual-enrolled students. But, Domenic’s credits are among 4,127 that Martin high schoolers are taking at IRSC this semester. “Just this first semester, it’s going to cost us $297,000,” said Ginger Featherstone, director of secondary adult and community programs at the Martin County Schools. In addition to paying for each credit, the district is on the hook

The History of Halloween Brought to you by

Once upon a time a man called Stingy Jack invited the devil to have a drink with him. Jack, who lived up to his Moniker, did not want to spend money so he persuaded the devil to turn himself into a coin that Jack could use to pay. The devil agreed but instead of buying the drinks Jack decided to keep the money. He put it deep down inside his pocket beside a silver cross which kept the devil from turning back to his original form. Eventually Jack decided to let the devil go as long as he promised not to bother Jack for one more year and if Jack died the devil would not claim his soul. A year later Jack convinced the devil to climb a tree for a piece of fruit, while the devil was picking the fruit Jack carved a cross in the tree bark which prevented the devil from climbing down until the devil promised Jack that he wouldn’t bother him for 10 more years. When Jack died God wouldn’t allow him into heaven and the devil, upset by the tricks that jack had played on him but keeping his word not to claim his soul would not let Jack into hell. He sent Jack off into the dark night with only a burning coal to light his way. Jack put the coal into a carved turnip and has wandered the earth with it ever since. The Irish call this ghostly figure Jack of the lantern. Eventually it was shortened to the term that we use today Jack-O’-Lantern. Folks in Ireland and Scotland started carving their own versions of Jack’s lanterns by etching scary faces into turnips or potatoes and setting them near the windows and the doors to scare away Stingy Jack and other evil spirit. When they emigrated to America the tradition came with them. They realize that pumpkins were native to our country and that they made perfect Jack-O’-Lanterns and that’s why we carve pumpkins to this very day.

marks behind road and bridge projects throughout the state and nation. Many were put on shelves as local, state and the federal governments struggled with sudden funding uncertainties. Then came the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. States scrambled to get “shovel-ready” projects before the Federal Highway Administration for funding. The proposed Indian Street Bridge was one. It fetched about $65 million, far less than the original construction estimates, and work started soon thereafter. Dykstra said the old traffic predictions are likely still valid, even if a few years off. She said the FDOT has more recently measured traffic on Martin Highway from Mapp Road west to the Ronald Reagan Turnpike as a temperature gauge. “Traffic volumes haven’t really changed on this portion of the roadway in the last 10 years,” she said. They range from about 9,500 to 14,000 trips a day along different sections. Whispering Sound Community Awareness Committee member Hal Smith has a prediction about the bridge opening, however. “It’s going to be congestion (on Martin Highway),” he said in a previous interview. “We think there’s a major safety problem.” Smith’s concern is that the bridge has four lanes, and most of Martin Highway, County Road 714, has two. Work to four-lane that roadway is slated to start between spring and summer of 2014, said Betsy Jeffers, design project manager at FDOT. It’ll continue in portions until at least 2017. Smith and others are advocating for expedited road work to widen Martin Highway. Haddox has a different concern. “What is the traffic going to be on Mapp Road between Martin Downs and Martin Highway?” he said. That’s where Haddox thinks the new bridge will likely shift traffic for the worse. The old traffic study said he’s almost right. Dykstra said the bridge opening will only add a few thousand trips a day to Martin Highway for at least the first few years. “What we see is there’s a significant force of traffic coming to and from the bridge on Mapp Road,” she said. However, Dykstra said few of those Mapp Road trips will be

new. She said most are existing trips now heading to the Palm City Bridge on Martin Downs. It has about 45,000 trips a day. Terry Rauth, deputy county engineer, said planning for the Veterans Memorial Bridge started shortly after the Palm City Bridge hit about 43,000 trips a day, or what traffic engineers deem a service level D for a four-lane bridge. That was in 1996. Rauth said the Palm City Bridge now has about 45,000 trips a day. In the ‘90s, projections were that it’d have about 64,700 trips a day within a decade if another bridge wasn’t opened. “But it didn’t,” Rauth said. “It went to 44,507. The reason is the 43,300 (trips) is more than a fourlane road can handle. People start finding other ways. They start avoiding it.” And Rauth thinks she knows how drivers are avoiding the Palm City Bridge until Veterans Memorial opens. “People will get on (Interstate Highway 95) to go around to get in Palm City,” she said. “What ended up happening is (The Kanner Highway interchange) ended up reaching capacity. We feel that happened because of a lot of people avoiding going over the Palm City Bridge.” Rauth said much of that avoidance traffic is likely heading to and coming from the southern and western ends of Palm City, and many of those drivers will head to Martin Highway to use Veterans Memorial. Maybe. Rauth said many of those drivers will again find it more convenient to use I-95 to get around traffic when the Martin expansion work starts. A dedication ceremony for the Veterans Memorial Bridge is scheduled for Nov. 16. Among other festivities, folks will be able to walk on the bridge all they want to take in a simultaneous antique-car and boat parade. Dedication festivities will launch with a 5k run at about 7 a.m. MCM Timing and Results, Jensen Beach, is organizing the run. After the 5K, dignitaries such as county commissioners will ceremonially dedicate the bridge. The Martin County Board of County Commissioners in 2011 voted to name the 3,100-foot structure Veterans Memorial Bridge. For construction updates, visit indianstreetbridge.com.

Local Honor Flight gets ready to take off into Washington, D.C., melee Staff writer

pmccallister@YourVoiceWeekly.com

Editor’s note: Press time for this story was Monday, Oct. 14. Because of the dynamic nature of the partial government shutdown that began on Oct. 1 numerous changes can develop by publication. Many federal government offices weren’t answering their press lines to answer inquiries, instead leaving messages for reporters that they’re short on staff due to the shutdown and may take weeks to respond to interview requests. MARTIN COUNTY — World War II veteran John Domino, Stuart, has some childhood experience getting past barricades. “A football game was a quarter,” he said. “We had no money.” Domino was a broke sports fan growing up in New Jersey. Buddies and he developed some ingenuity in getting past fences and into games. “I’ll find a way,” he said. He hopes that experience doesn’t come in handy when he goes to visit the National World War II Memorial. On Saturday, Oct 19, Southeast Florida Honor Flight will take its 15th group of veterans to Washington, D.C., to visit the memorial on the National Mall and other sites. Yeah, the memorial that’s been a highly-publicized flashpoint during the partial government shutdown that started on Oct. 1. Back in February, Martin Coun-

ty residents opened their hearts and wallets to give $60,000 to help the Honor Flight hub take 85 to 90 veterans to Washington, D.C. “We collected $60,000 in three days,” Todd Turner, vice chairman of the hub, said. “One hundred percent of that money goes to a flight each year and this is the flight.” Among those that got involved early on in Southeast Florida Honor Flight was Martin County Firefighters and Paramedics, International Association of Fire Fighters Local 2959, which leads what’s turned out to be the largest fundraisers for the flights: an annual fill-the-boot drive. Back in February, firefighters from Martin County and other fire-rescue agencies in the county, went to parking lots and street corners to ask folks to fill firefighters’ boots with money. And fill Martin County did. In a previous interview, John Davidson, the hub’s operations coordinator, said flights cost about $80,000, or nearly $1,000 for each veteran taken. But with news of barricades at the National Mall and Congresspersons showing up to greet Honor Fight veterans, things are likely to be different from previous flights. Television and photographic images of Honor Flight veterans from other hubs heading past barricades at the National Mall to visit the memorial quickly became iconic. And political fodder.

for textbooks. As the college updates its required textbooks, Martin Schools has to buy new ones. “We spent $113,000 for textbooks, just for the fall semester,” Featherstone said. Many of those textbooks now have accompanying, secured websites, too, that require access codes keyed to single users. There’s a charge for those. “That’s a single-use fee that’s $75 per student,” Featherstone said. “Access codes are for (individual) students, so that’s an increasing costs.” At a recent public meeting of

state legislators who represent Martin County, Sen. Joe Negron, Stuart, agreed with Superintendent of Schools Laurie Gaylord, that there were problems with the new dual-enrollment payment system. He also wondered aloud if dual enrollment was a good idea. “What about high school students actually attending high school?” he said. Negron said dual enrollment students get less state scrutiny for their college classes than high school ones. “The challenge to me is with dual enrollment is there’s no way to measure what the students are actually learning,” he said.

Southeast Florida’s last flight was in September, before the shenanigans started. Folks at the hub are unsure what they’ll encounter at the memorial, but hope for the best. Domino, who served in the Army from 1943 to 1946, filled out an application to go on the flight back in June, long before there was any talk about shutdowns and closed memorials. He isn’t interested in being an iconic image or making political statements by visiting the memorial. Frankly, Domino hopes the shutdown is finished history when he goes on his Honor Flight. But if it’s not, he plans to see the monument up close. He has some experience getting around fences. This trip, the Southeast Florida Honor Flight folks will have company likely because of the interest in the national Honor Flight program generated by unrequested attention it’s gotten lately. A film crew from Fox News will go along with the Treasure Coast veterans. Tucker said Southeast Florida Honor Flight ain’t about to let itself become anyone’s political prop. “I’ve been to the Memorial 13 or 14 times, and I’ve never seen a politician there, except for Bob Dole,” he said. “I’ve never seen any of these (Congress members). It’s a little disappointing that they found out that the World War II Memorial was closed and they rushed over there to be in front of the cameras.” Congressman Patrick Murphy, Jupiter Democrat representing the 18th District, hopes to again be at Operation Homecoming when the veterans return to the Palm Beach International Airport. That’ll be at 8 p.m., and the public is urged to show up to greet the veterans. Murphy said he’s been to Operation Homecoming before, and it’ll give him a chance to blend in with other well-wishers largely obscured from national television cameras. Tucker said

he’s seen Murphy at Operation Homecoming before, which started in April. “I really hope by the 19th, the government is reopened,” Murphy said. The Office of Management and Budget, which reportedly directed the closures of more than 400 national park closures, didn’t return requests for explanation by press time. A message warned that due to the government shutdown, the OMB was short on staff to respond to media requests for interviews. However, the closures are due to the Antideficiency Act, an 1880s law aimed at strengthening Congress’ constitutional hold on the federal purse strings. The law forbids the executive branch from authorizing any expenditures that exceed what Congress has appropriated. Additionally, the executive is largely forbidden from accepting voluntary services under the law, except in cases Congress has authorized. The law has provisions for protecting people from harm and protecting property. Murphy said he’s certain about what Honor Flight veterans should do if they encounter barricades. He noted that his grandfather was a 101st Airborne Screaming Eagle in World War II. “I know if he was here, he wouldn’t think twice about jumping over the barricade,” the congressman said. Private contributions funded the National World War II Memorial, which was dedicated in 2004. The fundraising campaign, which started in the early 1990s, raised nearly $200 million. Design and construction of the memorial cost about $182 million. The remainder went to groundbreaking and dedication ceremonies, along with a maintenance fee required by the Commemorative Works Act. Those funds went to the National World War II Memorial Trust Fund administered by the U.S.

water quality and our local environment,” he said. Each fix will require federal funding, both said. “It’s all about funding now and getting these projects approved and that’s why it’s important we had Congressman Hoyer down here to see it firsthand,” Murphy said. “Like I told you before, it’s about educating the Congress.” One source of funding, Hoyer said, is the Water Resource and Development Act, which recently passed in the Senate. It includes millions for Everglades restoration. “Unfortunately my Republican colleagues have not brought it to the floor,” Hoyer said. “We can’t pass it if they don’t bring it to the floor. In my view, it will pass.” Martin County Commissioner Sarah Heard greeted the lawmakers after they disembarked from

as human beings, so that we can all discuss this and really come up with some plans,” Pipes, 35, said a week before departing for Washington, D.C., to attend a congressional hearing on the lagoon hosted by Murphy and U.S. Rep. Trey Radel, R-Fort Myers. More than 20 members of the House and Senate showed up

Heard, a Republican, commended the Democrats for their efforts on behalf of the waterways. “Whoever is willing to step up and get serious about ecosystem restoration has my support and the support of most residents in the county,” Heard said. “We have to make this a priority and we have to get serious about enforcing pollution limits and we have to recognize that this is a state and federal partnership.” She also called for more federal support. “The state has done a remarkable job acquiring many of the lands necessary for Everglades restoration. It’s time for the federal government to step up and do their part,” Heard said. “Martin County alone of the 16 counties in the South Florida Water Management District has contributed a gift of $75 million in order to implement Everglades restoration projects.”

FLIGHT from page 19 Treasury. The American Battle Monuments Commission is charged to use them exclusively for the memorial. The Honor Flight Network is a national program that takes World War II veterans to see the memorial. The flights began, almost by accident, a year after it was erected. Honor Flight Southeast Florida, called a “hub,” started in 2009. In a previous interview, John Haddox — Martin County Commissioner, Palm City — said the county’s current veterans service office supervisor, Tony Reese, more of less got the hub started. Haddox was the office’s supervisor at the time. He retired and ran for the commission last year. “They took it — it took off like crazy,” Haddox said. “It was coordinated by the county’s veterans service office.” There’s a lot of urgency around everything Honor Flight does. According to a 2008 Associated Press estimate, the once 16.1 million World War II veterans are dying at a rate of more than 1,100 a day. Only about 2 million are living, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs. No one has an exact daily death count, but the VA, AP and others have developed the same estimate

by using long-form census data, VA data, and standard mortality tables. The VA estimates that America will have almost no World War II veterans by 2020. Honor Flight trips are free to the veterans. They’re accompanied by guardians, volunteers who pay to their own ways to care for the veterans during their visits to Washington, D.C. Turner said the hub has made protocols for dealing with barricades and National Park Service employee it could encounter at the World War II Memorial this flight. They’re aimed at keeping all interactions cordial as possible. Turner said that as a fire-department lieutenant he understands the need for maintaining a strong chain of command and following orders. “I’ve become friends with a lot of the National Park Service employees,” he said. “They’re up there day in and day out. They’re there by choice. They love the memorial. They love the veterans. I can only imagine what they’re going through carrying out this order (to close the memorial).” Honor Flight Southeast Florida is on the web at honorflightsefl.org.

Area business owner hatches creative fundraising idea for high school auto body program Anne Checkosky

FOR YOUR VOICE NEWS & VIEWS

PALM CITY — When Mark Smith puts his mind to something, his aim is to succeed and overcome any obstacle put in his path. The co-owner of Crown Collision, with partner Todd Harris, and sole owner of Dangerous Curves custom painting and graphics, both in Palm City, likes to come up with ways to help area groups fundraise. He recently raised $4,000 to cover the costs of a new roof for the Road to Victory Military Museum in Stuart, has sent nearly a dozen veterans to Washington, D.C., via Honor Flight, to view the museums there and delivered a World War II-era Mig fighter plane to students enrolled in the auto collision, repair and refurbishing program at Martin County High School so they could polish it up and paint insignias on it. Smith has worked with the MCHS auto body program for the last 15 or so years, said Ryan Kinne, its instructor for the past 21 years. As part of its state certification requirements, an advisory board made up of automotive professionals in a wide range of disciplines — insurance agents, car dealerships and others — meet three to four times a year to exchange ideas and help the program stay on the forefront of changes in the automotive industry. Smith is on that board and became dismayed recently when

he saw five empty toolboxes at the school. Realizing that the budget for the program had been slashed to next to nothing, Smith decided to brainstorm ideas for raising money so Kinne could afford to purchase the tools the students need, he said. “There are so very few auto body programs left,” Smith said. The fundraising idea he came up with was unique, even by his standards. He persuaded the owner of a Volkswagen Beetle to donate the car to the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast and then turn the car over to the auto body students at Martin County High to “trick it out” as a traveling animal education vehicle. When completed, it will feature paw prints on the sides that will change color when children touch them, a PA system, a horn that will have both a dog bark and cat meow, and the backseat will be removed so a cage can be installed to accommodate smaller animals such as rabbits or ferrets for demonstration purposes, Smith said. His ideas for detailing the car are limitless and once he and the students get to work on it, hopefully before the end of this month, who knows how many special features or added touches it might have? Frank Valente, executive director of the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast, is delighted with the project. “We’re excited to be part of it,” he said. Once finished, the car

to the Oct. 3 briefing. Each one pledged their support of solutions to fix the lagoon. The long list included U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. “For the first time, I think we really are slowly but surely getting the information into our lawmakers’ hands in a way that they’re starting to understand,” Pipes said. Pipes and close to 200 fellow “River Warriors” raised $8,000 to make the trip. Some trekked by bus, others flew. The river advocates linked up on social media sites several months ago and quickly became a grassroots force to be reckoned with. To date, they’ve mobilized dozens of rallies attended by more than 7,000 Treasure Coast residents. They speak to students and the elderly about the toxic waterways. They’ve also held fundraisers to help environmental organizations. “It’s sunup to sundown and it’s a lot of communication. People are tired and they’re working very hard,” Pipes said of the effort. “There’s so much planning and so many phone calls to our lawmakers and each other.” Sometimes the mother of two becomes weary, but won’t stop because clean water is too precious a resource to let dry up. “I moved clear across this country and I didn’t move here to not

be able to touch my water. So I’m driven,” Pipes said. “I feel so deeply connected to the water that I couldn’t imagine Florida without it and I’m afraid that’s where we’re headed. We have poisonous bacteria killing people in our water in this state and that is not OK.” “I get very mad (and experience) anger and frustration. Tears sometimes,” the Washington state native said. “I’m not going to lie, I’ve cried because I’ve seen it so much more beautiful than what it is.” Pipes recalls sailing days when dolphins would frolic in the clean water. These memories and her children’s future fuel her on. “It’s so hurtful to watch them do that in the dirty water,” Pipes said of the marine life. “I hurt for our river.” Many times dishes in the Pipes household pile up while she dredges on for the river. Her children and husband understand the battle and back her all the way, Pipes said. “My family has taken a little bit of a toll. My daughter was in the backseat one day saying, ‘Save our river! Save our river!’ all the way down U.S. 1,” Pipes said. “That’s when I really realized I have a very supportive family.” Pipes’s friend and neighbor Maria Sanclemente, 33, also joined the fight. “Any spare minute off, I devote it to this,” Sanclemente, a mother

of two said. Sanclemente decided to take a stand after encouragement from Pipes and a chance encounter in June with a stranger at a Martin County beach. “Don’t touch the water. The water is filthy, it’s dirty, it’s disgusting,” a beach-goer said. “I said, ‘Oh my God. How could that be?’” Sanclemente said. Although Pipes and Sanclemente live several miles away from the river, they encourage other inland residents in areas like St. Lucie West and Tradition, to join their efforts for the sake of the economy and future generations. “For my children I need to leave behind knowledge and education for them,” Sanclemente said. “I want to leave behind a clean world.” Sanclemente, who traveled to Capitol Hill to have her voice heard, said she will stop at nothing to save the St. Lucie River. “If we have to swim across the ocean or go anywhere in the country that we have to, we will do what we need to do,” she said. She believes the congressional hearing was a major milestone in the fight for clean water. “The main thing is that they know that we’re making noise,” Sanclemente said. “We’re not just making noise in front of our home. We’re not just making noise in the corner of the highway on some bridge somewhere. We’re making noise where it matters.”

I never thought anything could be more exciting than the day we said, “I do.” But moving into our own home is right up there. I was nervous at first. There was so much we didn’t know!

MARTIN COUNTY — St. Mary’s Episcopal Church will be hosting a three-day event featuring Dr. Chris Hall theologian, writer and teacher beginning on Friday, Oct. 18 through Sunday, Oct. 20 in the Pittenger Center, 701 S.E. Ocean Blvd. in Stuart. Hall is chancellor of Eastern University and dean of the Templeton Honors College. “’Can Real Change Happen?’ is the title of the weekend presentation by Dr. Hall and with all that is taking place in our world a lot of us wonder if it is possible”, said Father Todd Cederberg, rector of St. Mary’s Church. The event begins Friday evening with a potluck dinner and a presentation from Hall, who is a premier Biblical scholar.

“Our congregation is currently studying the fascinating writings of Dr. Hall on the Book of Revelation,” said Cederberg. Chris Hall is an editor-at-large at Christianity Today and associate editor of the Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture. “Don’t let that intimidate you because his teaching and preaching style is both entertaining and informative,” Cederberg said. Saturday, Oct. 19, attendees will be served a light breakfast and lunch between Hall’s lively presentations. Sunday will feature Hall in services at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. at St. Mary’s Church.

Firm helps raise $50k in one day FOR YOUR VOICE NEWS & VIEWS

MARTIN COUNTY -- The numbers are in and A Law Firm of Schmitt, Cambron and Reynolds P.L. is proud to announce it has helped three local nonprofit organizations raise more than $50,000 in a single day. “Our donated electronic billboard at Kanner and Monterey has been helping get the word out on local events and the results have been amazing,” said Attorney Kelly Cambron, Managing Partner of the firm. Saturday October 5 2013 was the day and the New Horizons Race for Recovery was the first event of the day. It was held in Mets Stadium in Port St. Lucie. Over two hundred runners raced for funds and collected over $10,000. The next event was The Sunshine Sprint held on Stuart Beach where one hundred thirty bicyclists from age 8 to 60 rode the course and

AUTO from page 23 will be used on a daily basis traveling to area schools and community groups, not to mention the various festivals that occur throughout the area such as the Pineapple Festival in Jensen Beach in the spring and at the annual Mutt March, Valente said. Smith’s goal is to raise $10,000 for the Martin County auto body students. Already, just by mentioning this project, he’s gotten three donations, he said. He’s giving himself until the end of February to reach his goal and if the donations keep coming after that, he’ll continue to accept them. In addition, he plans to hold monthly car shows at Hurricane Grille & Wings in Palm City with proceeds from raffles going to benefit the auto body program. He held one last month but didn’t raise any money because he’s still working out the kinks. The prob-

raised over $30,000 for the Sunshine Kids Foundation that helps children with cancer. Event number three was for the Treasure Coast Down Syndrome Awareness Group. Two hundred and fifty walkers joined the sixth annual Buddy Walk at Indian Riverside Park in Jensen Beach. The event raised over $10,000 and donated books about Down syndrome to the St. Lucie County Public Library System. “With all the negative things happening, it’s wonderful to be a part of positive events that help us care for those in our community”, said Attorney Kelly Cambron. For more information about A Law Firm of Schmitt, Cambron and Reynolds P.L. please visit www. FEMALEINJURYLAWYER.com or stop by their office at 1330 S. Federal Highway in Stuart. Their toll free number is 866-675-4427. Hundreds join friends and family for Buddy Walk in Jensen Beach.

lem was too many people showed up, parking was an issue and it wasn’t organized well. He’s learning from his mistakes, he said. As for Kinne, he marvels at Smith’s energy level. “He’s nonstop. He’s got like three phones on him and they’re all ringing at the same time. That would drive me (crazy), but he thrives on it,” Kinne said. Right now the car’s title is in the process of being transferred to the Humane Society. Once the paperwork is complete, the car will be delivered to the students so they can begin work. Smith plans to give an airbrushing demonstration and invite students from the school’s art department to come and watch. “This is pretty incredible. It’s a new venture for me,” Smith said. For more information on this project, contact Smith at (772) 287-4244.

STUART – Leave it to Jake Sanders and Curtain Call Productions to serve up something deliciously creepy, just in time for Halloween. For the first show of the new season, from Oct. 31-Nov. 1, he will direct the musical cult favorite, “The Rocky Horror Show.” Many people are familiar with the movie, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” also a cult favorite. Before the movie came the musical, first in London and then on Broadway. With characters that include Dr. Frank-N-Furter,

a cross-dressing mad scientist, a hunchback named Riff Raff and songs like “Sweet Transvestite,” this is not a show for the politically correct. The show is about a squeakyclean suburban couple, Brad and Jean, who get lost in the middle of nowhere. Wackiness ensues as they meet a strange brew of freaky characters. In the end, as befits any good theater, they learn some lessons about themselves. Sanders said that the show is in keeping with Curtain Call’s goals. “I like to call what we do daring-

See HORROR page 33

Mitch Kloorfain/chief photographer James Channing and Nicole Kinzel take on the roles of newlyweds Brad and Janet seeking solace from Casey Huneycutt’s character, Dr. Frank-n-Furter in the Curtain Call production of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Performances run Oct. 31Nov. 2 at Jensen Beach High School.

HOROR from page 30 ly intelligent musical theater,” he said. “I don’t think ‘Rocky Horror’ is an exception. It’s been billed as campy trash, but when you look at it, it is a really intelleigent, well-written satire of American sexuality in the 1970s. It’s very witty, very smart. While it’s known for its absurdity factor, it’s show that has something to say.” The cast includes Casey Huneycutt as Dr. Frank-N-Furter; Nicole Kinzel as Janet; James Channing as Brad; Sam Streich as Columbia; Christopher Cromer as Riff Raff; Melissa Brodzinski as Magenta; Joseph Machesko as Rocky; Mariano Garcia as Eddie; Heidi Condon as Dr. Scott; Michelle Lucey as the Usherette; and Arianna White, Quintin Smith, Rafael Gomez, Rosseroni Parris and Sarah Kenny as the Ensemble. Curtain Call will launch the 500 Club campaign this year. “Our goal is to get 500 people to donate $130 during the course of a year,” Sanders said. “With the economy, people can’t afford to give a lot. That number puts up at a point to break ground for a theater of our own, that can present longer runs and year-round programming.”

The group will hold a fundraiser early next year, with details to be announced later. Part of Sanders’ goal is to keep theater affordable. “We’re striving to keep ticket prices low. Donations are what will allow us to keep them low. We have two Equity actors in the show, Casey Huneycutt and Chris Cromer. There’s no place else in south Florida where you can see professional performers for $25. It’s usually $40-$45.” Sanders hopes that die-hard fans of the show and movie as well as first-timers will come out to see the musical. “We have a big, beautiful set that looks a lot like a rock show,” he said. “It’s partly rock concert and partly musical. I think it’s the way it’s intended to be. People will be excited. If they’re seeing it for the 30th time or the first, they will have a lot of fun.” Curtain Call Productions presents “The Rocky Horror Show Oct. 31-Nov. 2 at 8 p.m. at the Jensen Beach High School Performing Arts Center, 2875 N.W. Goldenrod Road, Jensen Beach. Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for students. For more information, visit the website, www.curtaincallfl.com. Tickets can be ordered online.

MARTIN COUNTY – Dust off those cowboy boots and polish your belt buckles, the Indiantown Rodeo will be riding back into town on Friday, October 25 and Saturday, October 26. The gates at Timer Powers Park, 14000 SW Citrus Boulevard, will open at 4 p.m. each day. Tickets are on sale now at all Seacoast National Bank branches. Advance ticket prices are $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. Don’t wait for event day to purchase tickets; last year’s Saturday show was a sellout! Tickets will sell for $15 per adult and $8 per child at the gate. The Indiantown Rodeo is a Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and Women’s Pro Rodeo Association sanctioned event featuring bareback riding, saddle bronc riding, bull riding, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, team roping, barrel racing and more. Before the official events start at 7:30 p.m., there are plenty of opportunities to get into the cowboy spirit with food, drink, specialty shopping and a live band that will play starting at 5 p.m. The Indiantown Rodeo’s presenting sponsor is Seacoast National Bank, the media sponsor is Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers. For more information, call the Indiantown Chamber of Commerce at (772) 597-2184 or visit www.indiantownchamber.com.
