WASHINGTON, D.C. — In less than a year in office freshman U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Jupiter, has made unprecedented strides in putting state issues on Washington’s radar. Murphy, a mere 30 years old, sits on two congressional committees and is a member of 22 caucuses for issues relating to the advancement of veterans, disaster relief funding, the environment, Florida ports and small businesses. The Key Largo native, who earned his bachelor of science in business administration from the University of Miami, graduating with dual majors in accounting and finance, campaigned on the principle of bipartisanship against the oftentimes polarizing Allen West in the costliest congressional and controversial campaigns of 2012. Murphy made good on his campaign promise to work across party lines, teaming

MURPHY from page 3 quit. On the eve of his wildly successful Oct. 3 congressional briefing on the Indian River Lagoon, attended by more than 20 members of Congress, the youngest member of the 113th Congress sat down for a oneon-one in his Washington, D.C., office. Murphy, who didn’t take a paycheck during the 16-day partial shutdown, talked about his future in politics, the government shutdown, environment and more. Q: What was the atmosphere like in Congress in the days and hours leading up to the shutdown? Is it has bad as what we see on TV? Is (the partisanship) as tense? A: Confusion, frustration, disbelief. I was very — and still am every day — growing increasingly more frustrated with the fact that we’re shutdown. It’s almost surreal, it’s like a bad dream that I’m just waiting to wake up from. This couldn’t possibly be happening. I’ve been in Congress for eight months and I campaigned against this sort of ridiculous behavior and eight months into office, this is what goes on because leadership can’t get their act together. It’s an embarrassment for this country. Q: What type of message does a

shutdown send? A: The shutdown itself, the government shutdown, sends a message to Americans and to I think a lot of other countries that our government isn’t functioning, our Congress isn’t functioning, that we’re not doing our basic duties of funding the government. That sort of uncertainty, is bad overseas. Domestically speaking, I’m talking of businesses of all sizes, every day that say ‘Hey, you know I was getting ready to go buy a new piece of equipment, you know, I was going to buy a new piece of land to build a new building, I was going to hire five more people, but I don’t know what is going to happen.’ That sort of uncertainty has left a lot of people, unfortunately, having to keep their money on the sidelines because they don’t have faith in our country. They don’t know what interest rates are going to be in a week from now, in a day from now. If we default, interest rates will go up. They don’t know what the regulatory environment is going to be like. Big-picture items that we have solutions for like immigration, like reducing the debt. These are big-picture items we can solve and we’re not doing the basics, so that the big-picture things aren’t even on the table right now. That’s just sad. Q: Is being a Florida native the

Q: Looking at the water, how do you feel emotionally? A: That’s why I’ve got this bottle of water that I’m carrying it around to show other members of Congress. I brought it to Sen.

reason why the lagoon issue has struck you and been a big concern? A: Yes. Growing up as kid in the Florida Keys, I have two uncles that are charter boat fisherman. I grew up fishing and diving and lobstering and enjoying the outdoors never really understanding how the two were connected, the environment and the economy. But I grew up and realized, wow, they’re really integral and intimately connected in Florida. Our local economy is based in tourism and if you take away the nice, clean water, you take away the fishing and the diving, etc. and the Everglades National Park, then those tourists aren’t going to have any reason to come and there goes the economy. So, certainly, yeah, it’s been a big part of my passion for this issue.

who made the trip on a charter bus with other Treasure Coast residents. “I really feel that they are hearing us and are doing something.” The meeting garnered the presence of more than 20 House and Senate members, a sight she wished her late grandfather, Johnny Jones, lived to see. “My grandparents fought their lives for this and it’s still going on,” she said. The John C. and Mariana Jones Hungryland Wildlife and Environmental Area, which straddles the boundary between Martin and Palm Beach counties, was named after Roberts’s grandparents. John C. Jones, who died in 2010 from chronic health issues at age 77, once served as vice president of the Florida Wildlife Federation and became president in 1972. In 1972, Johnny and his wife Mariana were hired as the first executive director and executive secretary of the Federation. “I don’t feel like I can even hold a match to what they’re done. I told my Grandma, ‘You guys must be really strong because there are days when I get really frustrated, I get down,’” Roberts said. During his 16 years with the Federation, Johnny Jones lobbied 67 environmental bills through the Florida Legislature. “Florida has lost a beloved son and unfaltering environmental leader,” former Gov. Charlie Crist said the day Jones died. “Because of his resolute actions, the Kissimmee River and Everglades restoration efforts are closer to reality while generations to come will enjoy countless acres of wild places because he cared.” Just days before embarking on the historic trip, Roberts had a conversation with her grandmother. “Is there a way the discharges can be changed, I mean it’s the Army Corps, are we really going to be able to take this out of their hands?” Roberts asked Mariana Jones. “She believes it can be done. It was encouraging,” Roberts said. “She really believes we have some momentum going on here in the movement.” Roberts, who recently moved to Stuart from Palm City because of financial reasons, said no stack of bills thanks to the Great Recession was too tall to keep her from lobbying lawmakers on Capitol Hill. “I will do anything. I will clean your house, pick your weeds, we have a pool service business, we will come clean your pool, whatever, so that I could get a couple days off from work,” Roberts said

of the lengths she was willing to go to in order to attend the meeting. Friends and public donations during events held by the “River Warriors” made the trip possible, Roberts said. “These are wonderful people,” Roberts said of her fellow activists. “They energize me and give me excitement in everything again.” The Florida native said her two children are also a motivating factor in her efforts to save the lagoon. “I’ve always been on these waters. I was born and raised in West Palm and my family, that’s what we do for entertainment, go to the beach, go to the river, fish,” Roberts said. “I care very much about this for my kids. My son just turned 18. He just went to get his captain’s license,” Roberts said. “He’s a wonderful fisherman. He’s gifted. He does all kinds of fishing.” “This is where he wants to spend his career and I want him to be able to do that and without the clean water, he’s not going to be able to.” Roberts said in all of her years, the lagoon is in its worst state. “It makes me mad the fact that the government has said they backed this and approved this and pushed for this, but they’re turning around and taking things that they’ve said they’re going to do back or just not moving fast enough. It’s been going on for 80 years,” she said. Roberts, who was thrilled with the congressional turnout, said a fix won’t be easy, but is finally on the right track. “They do need to keep cleaning the water with the natural flow and natural way,” said Roberts, who believes the solution begins in Kissimmee.

MURPHY from page 5 understand. To think that you used to see through that water — years ago that was blue, beautiful water — is appalling. Another story that really stands out to me is I was with (St. Lucie County) Commissioner (Chris) Dzadovsky when we were laying those oysters and he got that little cut and he got a little water in there and it turned into these lesions. Q: With the lagoon, what is the fix? A: That’s one of the complicated parts. There’s no silver bullet. There’s no one easy solution. If there was, it would have been done. This is decades in the making. The Army Corps really messed up the Everglades in the 1920s and moved everything around, I mean that’s just what happened. A lot of interest, a lot Ag (agriculture), a lot of things have happened along the way to put us in this position. So, there’s been a lot of research, a lot of scientists, a lot of money spent on understanding how we can fix it and get it as close back to original form as possible. But that takes money and that takes time. I think we realistically need a 10- to 15year horizon, you know, to really get this, not (to) say solved, but better. And that’s hard to stomach for a lot of people because this has been going on for a very

long time, but I do believe that’s the reality of it. There is no easy solution, but the more we get things like C-44 (canal improvements) funded and CEPP (Central Everglades Planning Project) and CERP (Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan), fixing the Herbert Hoover Dike, get C-43 (canal) funded, raise the Tamiami Trail. You get them all together and there’re all little pieces of the pie, but when you put them all together it adds up. And there’s some low-hanging fruit, some easy things we can do, like the water conservation, the water farming that’s relatively inexpensive and an area that we hope we can try to get some funding from the (Obama) administration to keep that water from ever getting to Lake Okeechobee. Q: What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned in politics? A: Always do what you believe is best. Don’t ever listen to any party or any sort of one constituency group. You have to No. 1 live with your votes, but you have to justify it and you have to be comfortable with those. I haven’t learned it the hard way or anything, but it’s just I’ve always believed that and it’s been reiterated as I’ve been here longer, because there are a certain amount of games that get played up here.

Beach goers to be cautious of saltwater bacteria

decorators finest

Nicole Rodriguez Staff writer

nrodriguez@YourVoiceWeekly.com

TREASURE COAST — State health officials want beach goers to beware of a silent saltwater killer that’s claimed the lives of 10 this year and infected a total of 33. Vibrio vulnificus is a naturally-occurring bacteria found in warm coastal waters during the summer. People can become infected with the bacteria when they eat raw shellfish, particularly oysters. People with open wounds can also be exposed through direct contact with seawater. The flesh eating bacteria tends to thrive best in brackish water like the Indian River Lagoon, but is a separate issue from the toxic bacteria and algae Lake Okeechobee discharges have brought, said Martin County Health Department environmental health director Bob Washam. But an out-of-state study may suggest otherwise. Vibrio vulnificus is “ not necessarily related to a specific pollution source. The two most significant factors for finding them in surface waters are temperature and salinity,” according to informational documents posted on the state of Maryland’s Department of the Environment’s website. “Recent research has suggested that nutrients may play a role invibrio concentration. V. vulnificus bacteria are not commonly found in the winter when water temperatures are low, but may be common in the summer and early fall when water temperatures are

warm,” the literature also states. Those with weakened immune systems are especially susceptible, Washam said. “People that have had health conditions where their immune systems aren’t that strong are affected by it most,” Washam said. Washam added those with liver disease have a heightened vulnerability to infection. So far, Martin County has had no reported cases. St. Lucie County has had two, reported between April and October when the bacteria is most prominent. Both cases were associated with consuming raw or undercooked shellfish and open wound exposure to seawater, said Arlease Hall, public information officer for the Florida Department of Health in St. Lucie County. To help prevent vibrio vulnificus infections, Clint Sperber, deputy administrator of the Florida Department of Health in St. Lucie County “urges residents and visitors to not eat raw oysters or other raw shellfish and to avoid exposure of open wounds or broken skin to warm salt or brackish water.” Ingestion of Vibrio vulnificus can cause vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain. It can also cause an infection of the skin when open wounds are exposed to warm seawater, which may lead to skin breakdown and ulcers. Healthy individuals typically develop a mild disease. Vibrio vulnificus infections in individuals with a compromised immune system can cause severe and life-threatening illness with symptoms like fever, chills and

MURPHY from page 7 stick to your principles and your core, I think you’ll come out OK. Q: Your proudest accomplishment in office? A: I would say two things. One, the amount of constituents we’ve helped out. We’ve been able to help with hundreds of thousands, maybe near a million by now. At least hundreds of thousands of veterans due benefits, seniors that are due Social Security and Medicare checks. So that is very rewarding, being able to call those constituents, that may or may not have voted for me that matter, that may or may not like the government, and say ‘Hey, X,Y and Z. Your veterans benefits you’ve been fighting for two and a half years, we just talked to the VA.’ And that’s because of the hard work of my team and I thank them for that. No. 2, a proud accomplishment would be early on we were able to get some money back to the district for beach renourishment, for inlet dredging and Everglades restoration. That again, was the hard work of my team and very happy to have gotten something substantive done. Q: Best part of what you do?

A: Being able to help constituents. There’s a lot of boloney up here in D.C. that you have to deal with. When you go home and you talk to the senior or the constituent you were able to help, something tangible, that makes it all worth it. Q: Allen West. What comes to mind when you think of him? And how was campaigning against him? A: I’m glad the campaign is behind us and I’m very happy to be up in D.C. now serving the 18th district. I really don’t put a lot of thought into what he’s doing. I still see him on the news here and there, but my focus is serving the district. Q: Election season is coming up. Worst case, you don’t get re-elected, what would your life look like after that? A: I guess I’ll tell you on Nov. 7, 2014. I don’t know. The way I look at election and re-election is the more I can focus on my job and the more that we can do a good job in this office, doing what our job is, you know, helping people out and all the things we just mentioned, veterans and seniors and the river and doing a good job, then voters will hopefully recognize we’re doing the best we can and will vote to re-elect us.

How to prevent Vibrio vulnificus infections • Do not eat raw oysters or other raw shellfish. • Cook shellfish (oysters, clams, mussels) thoroughly. • For shellfish in the shell, either a) boil until the shells open and continue boiling for 5 more minutes, or b) steam until the shells open and then continue cooking for 9 more minutes. Do not eat those shellfish that do not open during cooking. Boil shucked oysters at least 3 minutes, or fry them in oil at least 10 minutes at 375°F. • Avoid cross-contamination of cooked seafood and other foods with raw seafood and juices from raw seafood. • Eat shellfish promptly after cooking and refrigerate leftovers. • Avoid exposure of open wounds or broken skin to warm salt or brackish water, or to raw shellfish harvested from such waters. • Wear protective clothing (e.g., gloves) when handling raw shellfish.

Wound infections may also be serious in people with weakened immune systems, according to the Florida Department of Health’s website. The infection is usually treated by antibiotics.

PALM CITY — The latest generation joined the Greatest Generation on Honor Flight. On Saturday, Oct. 19, Dillon Mason, Martin County High School Air Force Junior ROTC cadet joined World War II veteran Thomas Ochalek on the Southeast Florida hub’s last trip. “I learned about a few key battles,” Mason said after the flight. “I’m a fan of history, so I had some background. But learning about it from their perspective was interesting.” It’s the second time the Education Foundation of Martin County has paid for Air Force and Army Junior ROTC students to be Honor Flight guardians. Lisa Rhodes, executive director of the foundation, said many of the board members have been Honor Flight guardians. “We know what an amazing experience it is and we thought what a fantastic (educational) opportunity for our students in ROTC,” she said in a phone interview before the flight. Two other Martin Junior ROTC students were also on the flight: William McClure, Jensen Beach High School, and Aaron Duerksen, South Fork High School, Stuart. Martin County and Jensen Beach highs have Air Force Junior ROTC units. South Fork an Army Junior ROTC unit. The Junior ROTC instructors at each school were able to select one student each. As guardians, the students spent the day with one World War II veteran each looking after their

young,” the cadet said. Although deceased, Mason said his paternal grandfather still has a strong presence in his family. “I’ve always heard a lot about what he did (in World War II),” he said. “He was in the signal corps.” In addition to paying $400 a student to send the youths, the foundation picked up the tab to send Chief Master Sgt. Rod “Roddy” Hartsook, instructor at Martin County High. He said Martin High has 144 students in the four-year cadet program, and there were a number of good contenders for the Honor Flight spot. He said much of the choice came down to Mason’s ability to coordinate numerous things at once. “Dillon (Mason) is our logistics person,” Hartsook said in a phone interview before the trip. Hartsook, too, was a guardian, in addition to being a Martin County School District employee to oversee the students. The students will make presentations about the Honor Flight trip at the foundation’s Nov. 12 meeting, 5:30 p.m. at the Stuart/ Martin County Chamber of Commerce, 1650 S. Kanner Highway, Stuart. Rhodes, who was a guardian on a previous flight, said the foundation hopes, too, that the students will make presentations at their schools. She said Honor Flight guardians get crash cours-

es in World War II history. “My veteran was 93 years old,” she said. “He was on the beach in Normandy. It was so inspiring being with him. It was so amazing; the stories, the work ethic. We shared lots of laughs and lots of tears all the way up and all the way back.” Todd Tucker, vice chairman of Southeast Honor Flight, said veterans always appreciate the guardians, but they especially like the youth. “The veterans really enjoy spending time with the young kids, especially the ones in the (Junior ROTC) program,” he said in a phone interview. While rules generally require guardians to be 18 or older, Tucker said the Honor Flight Network allows exceptions for youths in programs such as Junior ROTC, Boy and Girl Scouts and other programs. In the past, the Road to Victory Military Museum, Stuart, has sponsored guardians selected from its 804th Venture Crew. The Oct. 19 trip was Southeast Florida Honor Flight’s 15th. The hub has taken more than 1,000 veterans. Back in February, Martin County residents opened their hearts and wallets to give $60,000 to help the hub take veterans to Washington, D.C. “We collected $60,000 in three days,” Tucker said in a previous

interview. “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. Flights cost about $80,000, or nearly $1,000 for each veteran taken. Honor Flight figures the veterans paid their ways by serving in World War II, and charges them nothing. The national World War II Memorial was opened in 2004. Private donations funded it. 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. The Honor Flight Network is a national program that takes World War II veterans to see the memo-

rial. The flights began, almost by accident, a year after it was erected. Honor Flight Southeast Florida, called a “hub,” started in 2009. 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. Now fewer than two 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. Rhodes said donors can give specifically for the Martin County Education Foundation to pay for Junior ROTC students to go on the Honor Flight trips. Mason said he’s considering joining the Air Force after high school. “Probably just a stint,” he said. After that, he wants to finish college. To learn more about the foundation, visit educationfoundationmc. org. Honor Flight Southeast Florida is on the web at honorflightsefl.org.

PALM CITY — Rob Ranieri has a longer drive to work these days. The former chief operating officer at The Firefly Group donned the same hat for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County at the beginning of October. Ranieri said not having a Boys & Girls Clubs when he was young makes him value the organization. “I’ve had a pretty good business career,” the 49-year-old said. “I’ve always enjoyed what I do, but I’ve never worked a mission like this.” Ranieri, his wife, Stacy, and their two children live in Palm City, where Stacy founded a public-relations and marketing firm, The Firefly Group. The family has done volunteer work for the organization for about a decade. “I used to own a couple car washes,” Ranieri said. “The then development director came to me for (financial) support.” Ranieri said giving a few bucks quickly turned into hours and sweat, too.

Local producer who was subplot in shutdown tragedy gets happy ending Patrick McCallister Staff writer

pmccallister@YourVoiceWeekly.com

TREASURE COAST — The recent 16-day partial federal government shutdown looked like it was going to drop the curtain on Curtain Call Productions. Port St. Lucie’s Jake Sanders, artistic director, looks back at the partial shutdown with a storyteller’s eye. “I think it’s a little tragic comedy,” he said. “It’s definitely good theater. Looking at it as a story, it’s a great story. It’s so tragic, but had a comic element.” Before the shutdown’s end, Sanders was looking at it through the eyes of a disaster-story victim — perhaps the one that has the valued item he can’t or won’t release even as the fire nears, or cliff starts crumbling. Act 1: the situation. Sanders had an appointment with the Internal Revenue Service scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 1. Congress’ inability to pass a new federal budget or continuing resolution abruptly cancelled that and countless other appointments. “For two months I waited for

that Tuesday,” Sanders said in an interview before the shutdown ended on Thursday, Oct. 17. “Unfortunately it was on the Tuesday the government shut down.” Act 2: the escalation. Curtain Call put on five shows on a provision not-for-profit status last season. As an upstart theater company largely dependent on donations and other benefits of a not-for-profit status, heading close to a new season without one was a psychological thriller Sanders didn’t want to star in. “I’m not sure how our status will be affected should the shutdown run much longer, because there’s no one there to answer questions,” he said at the time. A big reason Curtain Call needed that not-for-profit status was because it’d moved from the Lyric Theatre, Stuart, to the Jensen Beach Performing Arts Center, Jensen Beach High School. The Martin County School District requires not-for-profit status to rent the theater, Sanders said. The possibility of a theater shutdown stood to cost local actors and workers temporary jobs. Sanders said last year Curtain

Call employed about 100 through the season. This year, he projects Curtain Call will employ about 120. James Channing, Palm City, landed roles in two of this season’s musicals. Channing said Curtain Call was one of the reasons he moved back to the Treasure Coast, where he grew up, from Orlando. He was doing some substitution theater work for a large entertainment complex in Central Florida, but Curtain Call gave him a chance to get paid temporary work here. So, he moved back to his hometown. “(Curtain Call) absolutely helps local businesses to thrive,” Channing said. In addition to the theater work, Channing has regular work. He said the theater income will help him spend and save a few dollars. He said one of Curtain Call’s economic benefits is getting locals to spend entertainment dollars in Martin County, rather than heading to places such as Orlando. “Just the cast alone, every night after a show, we’d go to the same restaurant and spend a lot of money,” Channing said. “You’d see (audience members) after the show going out for drinks.”

Jake Sanders Act 3: the resolution. Back in Washington, D.C., senators Mitch McConnell and Harry Reid famously worked out a proposal that they turned into a bill to end the shutdown. The Senate passed it 81 to 18, as an election to fill the New Jersey seat left vacant by the death of Senator Frank Lautenberg progressed. The House or Representatives

SHUTDOWN from page 18 passed it 285 to 144. Sanders quickly called the IRS to find out what he’d have to do to get a happy ending for Curtain Call. “We were able to handle everything over the phone,” he said, “I won’t even have to go into the office.” Epilogue. So, with the government shutdown of 2013 in the history books, Sanders looks at it as a story weaver. He said it had all the elements needed for a good American novel. There were tracks with an approaching train and a hostage tied to them. The story also had a twist, Sanders said. The victim tied to the tracks didn’t await a saving hero. “We had people try to strap America down to the train tracks, and we did not let them hold that hostage,” he said. “We would not play into it.” Sanders explained, “I think the American people stood up as the hero. We did not give the politicians what they wanted out of this. They did not get to use this as a platform to make themselves look better.” Narratives about the shutdown vary. In general, most seem to agree that a wing of the Republican Party at first forced the shutdown in an effort to defund or delay implementation of the Af-

Sanders explained, “I think the American people stood up as the hero. We did not give the politicians what they wanted out of this. They did not get to use this as a platform to make themselves look better.” fordable Care Act, which is often called Obamacare. Then the hue and cry shifted as the shutdown progressed to more generalized concerns about federal spending and the national debt. The shutdown was replete with shifting story lines and Republicans and Democrats trading charges of intransigence. While most polls during the shutdown seemed to say that voters gave the Republican Party the largest strike on its national popularity, no federal political figures emerged unsinged. “I think it’d make a great musical,” Sanders said. “I like it when politics and musicals combine.” He hopes it’s taken as a morality play by future congresspersons who consider using the threat of a federal-government blackout as a political tool. Curtain Call will perform “The Rocky Horror Show” Oct. 31 to Nov. 2. Channing is portraying Brad in that musical. Other musicals this season are “Spelling Bee,” “Assassins” and “Avenue.” Break a leg.

The Southeast Florida Honor Flight Twilight 5k is taking off this year at the annual Stuart Air Show. “If it goes well, it’ll be an annual event,” Alex Beringer, executive vice president of Fair Wind Air Charter, said. Beringer came up with the 5k idea and presented it to the Treasure Coast Honor Flight hub’s board of directors. Michael Roberts, chairman, said the board immediately liked the idea. Roberts is also on the air show’s board of directors. “We’re hoping to get 30 to 50 runners or more,” Roberts said. Beringer’s company, Fair Wind, was often inconvenienced by the recent 16-day partial federal government blackout. The company does a lot of business with the Federal Aviation Administration and Department of Transporta-

tion. Beringer said his company’s inconveniences suddenly seemed tiny when he saw television images of World War II veterans facing barricades at the National World War II Memorial. “It struck a chord with us and put us on a mission,” Beringer said.   Plans were to use the run as a fundraiser for Honor Flight, as promotion for the air show, and as a First Amendment exercise against the barriers if the shutdown still had them in place. Senators Mitch McConnell and Harry Reid famously worked out a proposal that was turned into a bill to end the shutdown. The Senate passed it 81 to 18, as an election to fill the New Jersey seat left vacant by the death of Senator Frank Lautenberg progressed. The House of Representatives passed it 285 to 144. The government was open for business on Thursday, Oct. 17, a couple days

5k from page 20 before Southeast Honor Flight took its latest group of veterans to Washington, D.C. The National World War II Memorial was opened in 2004. Private donations funded it. 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. 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. Flights cost about $80,000, or nearly $1,000 for each veteran taken. Honor Flight figures the veterans paid their ways by serving in World War II and charges them nothing, so fundraising is very important to its mission. There’s a lot of urgency around the Honor Flight mission. 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. Now fewer than two million are living, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs. No one has an exact 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. The run will be on Friday, Nov. 1, at 5:45 at the Martin County Airport’s Witham Field, 2100 S.E. Airport Road. The air show, too, begins at 5:45, with a parachute team delivering an American flag, followed by twilight performances by the Twin Tiger and AeroShell aerobatic flight teams. The Stewart Air Show continues on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 2 and 3, with acts such as the Lewis & Clark FLS Microjet, Precious

www.YourVoiceWeekly.com Metal Air Racer, Air Sports Parachute Demonstration Team, and the Julie Clark, John Klatt, Dan Buchanan and Gary Ward airshows, along with Elgin Wells’ Starjammer. Veterans will get in free with proof of military service. Witham Field was an auxiliary facility to the Naval Air Station Vero Beach during World War II. It was later named after Paul “Homer” Witham, the first known Navy aviator from Martin County to die in World War II. Registration for the Southeast Florida Honor Flight Twilight 5k is $25.

Birthday bash a trip back in time Shelley Koppel Staff writer

STUART — They knew how to party in the 1920s. It was the era of flappers and zoot suits, jazz and bathtub gin. You can party that way, too, at the Lyric Birthday Bash Benefit Gala on Nov. 16. The evening will begin with a concert at the theater by the Cab Calloway Orchestra, led by the famed orchestra leader’s grandson, Chris. Then it’s on to the Elliott Museum, transformed into a 1920s-style speakeasy. Linda Prange is the Lyric’s director of development. She is also part of the Lyric’s League of Extraordinary Women and a Few Guys, the group that is planning

Reindeer Dash Chair Denise Faherty, along with her Committee, are working hard to ensure that this fun-for-all-ages event will be a huge success. Last year’s race drew more than 400 runners and walkers of all ages, and the Junior League is expecting even more participants this year! Teams of five or more racers are also encouraged to register, and prizes will be awarded for the top individual and team finishers. This is a great event for the whole family!

the event. She said that the fun starts with the concert. There will be fan dancers and zoot suits,” she said. “Chris Calloway enjoys getting the audience involved, just as his grandfather did. It’s high-energy and colorful. We’re encouraging everyone to come in 1920s clothes.” After the concert, luxury coaches will bring audience from the Lyric to the Elliott Museum. “Part of the fun is seeing how the new Elliott is turned into a speakeasy,” Prange said. “We’re calling it the Cotton Club Speakeasy. We’re doing everything we can to give it the feeling of a speakeasy. Alcohol was banned in the 1920s, so they had alcohol in secret places. They were dingy on the outside. You had to knock and give the password. Outside, it was dingy and inside, it was very grand. That’s the fun of what we’re trying to come up with. The whole idea is for it to be fun.” At the Elliott, there will be live music, food and “bootleg” liquor and a lot of surprises. Prange isn’t giving any of the secrets away. The seating will try to create an intimate and cozy atmosphere, in keeping with the speakeasy theme. While fun is the theme, there is a serious purpose to the event. “It’s a benefit for the Lyric and funds will go into the capital cam-

paign,” Prange said. It will go for remodeling and renovations and for residencies by artists and other educational programming. We receive no funds of any kind from any government, city or county, and nothing from national organizations that support the performing arts. It’s what we generate.” Prange has high praise for the committee planning the event. The League of Extraordinary Women and a Few Guys are all volunteers. “This is a new group, Prange said. “This is the first big thing we’re doing. It’s the first of an annual event. We plan to do this each year.” It’s time for all the flappers and fellas out there to dust off the silver dresses and spats and prepare to party. It’s for a good cause and a good time is promised, as long as you know the password. The Lyric Birthday Bash Benefit Gala will be held on Nov. 16. The concert, featuring the Cab Calloway orchestra, begins at the lyric at 6 p.m. Shuttle buses will take party-goers to the Elliott Museum, transformed into a 1920s-style speakeasy. Tickets for the event are $250 and include a ticket to the concert and party at the Elliott Museum. Sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information, call Linda Prange at (772) 2201942, Ext. 209 or send an email to development@lyrictheatre.com.

Hello my name is Miss Molly. At 4 years old, I am a cutie-pie and the sweetest feline you’ll ever find. My fur is a mixture of brown, orange and beige on the outside and a blend of love and tenderness on the inside. I am 8 lbs of pure affection. Are you in search of a lovable 68 lb. gorgeous hunk? You found me, I’m Milo! At 1-1/2 years old, I am a strapping Alaskan Malamute and American Indian Canine. You’ll be impressed with my talents of sit, give paw and lay down. I am energetic and will do best in a fencedin yard where I can exercise, play and have lots of fun. I am a gentle giant and will greet you always with my majestic stance.
