PALM CITY — Enough cable to stretch from Palm City to Hallandale Beach. That’s how much is getting put into the Veterans Memorial Bridge. The bridge gives Palm City a second over-the-river connection to Stuart. Most are still calling it the Indian Street Bridge. “This month, we’ve completed three more decks,” George Denti, project manager, said. “We’ve set three more spans of beams. We’ve also completed phase one of post tensioning and grouting.” Bridges are built in parts. The cables joining them are stretched to 500,000 pounds per square inch. “It makes (the bridge) act as one big happy unit,” Denti said. The cables are weaved through beams with ducts. If stretched straight, the cables would be the length of three and a half marathons — 92 miles. That’s 179 tons of steel that’ll hold up an

Physician specializes in primary, urgent care By Shelley Koppel Staff writer

skoppel@yourvoiceweekly.com

STUART — Dr. Michele Libman of Treasure Coast Urgent and Primary Care is one of only a few physicians in south Florida who are board-certified in two specialties, internal medicine and emergency medicine. “When I was in med school, you really only got three weeks in each specialty,” she said. “When I graduated, I was not 100 percent sure (of my specialty.) I figured I’d do internal medicine. You could work in the emergency room with internal medicine. While I was doing my residency, I picked a program where they spent time in the ER. I liked that aspect, figuring out what was wrong.” Libman said that the two areas present different challenges. “When you’re a medical resident, you’re given a patient where you know what’s wrong,” she said. “In the ER, you’re starting from scratch and finding pieces of the puzzle. It’s more challenging. Now, to work in the ER you have to be ER-trained.” The doctor received her medical degree from Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. She

completed her internal medicine residency at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia and her emergency residency at Jacobi Hospital and Montefiore Medical Center in New York. Dr. Libman moved to Martin County in 2000 and has practiced as an emergency room physician at Martin Health System and Lawnwood Regional Medical Center. She lives in Palm City with her husband, son, and three dogs, Jack, Casey and Stitch. At Treasure Coast Urgent and Primary Care, she is able to treat patients and families. “In internal medicine, you see people who haven’t seen a doctor in years and have symptoms,” she said. “You have patients you have had for awhile where you are managing conditions and educating them. It’s nice. You develop a relationship with them and their families. In the ER you don’t have that rapport.” The practice began with the urgent care, but as it grew, people who came in for emergencies asked Dr. Libman to be their regular doctor. “The ER treats the most serious patients,” Libman said. “We care for sprains, lacerations, nebulizers for mild asthma and upper respiratory problems. We

If patients think they are having a heart attack or stroke, they should go to the ER.” Libman said that her patients like having a continuum of care. “We can continue to see most of our urgent care patients,” she said. “Their records are here. It’s nice for the primary care patients. If they get acutely sick, they can go to the urgent care.

The office is located on Monterey Road in Stuart, in a building with other physician offices. “What’s nice about this building is that there are sub-specialists here. We can usually get them a same-day appointment. We have good relationships with them.” In addition to primary and urgent care, the practice handles

More reasons why this Wash is different?

PALM CITY — Commissioner John Haddox, Palm City, summed it up with one sentence. “Unfortunately, equestrian trails are probably the most contentious issue in my district.” At its last regular meeting, the Martin County Commission unanimously approved plans for the proposed 26-acre Citrus Grove Community Park beside Citrus Grove Elementary, 2527 S.W. Citrus Blvd., Palm City. However, the commission nixed plans for a horse trail going through part of the park. The move displeased Ron Shewmaker, founder and director of the Palm City Farm Trails Association. He said the proposed park will cut an existing 35-mile equestrian trail in half. “There was connectivity there before, but there won’t be after you put this park in,” he told the commission. “In the past we did agree

to give up something for another use, and now you’re taking it away.” In an interview after the meeting, Shewmaker referred Your Voice News & Views to the association’s website for additional information. “I believe that trail exists and it’s platted land,” he said in the interview. Shewmaker later said, “This is fodder for lawyers, and I’m not a lawyer.” In a separate interview after the meeting, Haddox said that his head is swimming in legal questions about whether the county would have been legitimizing the entire trail — which traverses some private properties — by adding the proposed link. That, he said, was why he opted to remove it for now. “In (Palm City Farms), there on the plat there are public-private right of ways,” Haddox said. “Somewhere around 10, 12 years ago, the Palm City Farm Trails Association asked neighbors to open up some of their properties, so

Weekend ‘thing’ blossoms into full-fledged floral business By Patrick McCallister Staff writer pmccallister@yourvoiceweekly.com PALM CITY — Christina Pardo’s DNA probably looks like orchids and bromeliads. “My mother always had orchids and bromeliads around the house,” she said. “My mother always had gorgeous gardens; people always had something to say about them.” Pardo owns Blooming Freedom at 3993 S.W. Leighton Farm Ave. in Palm City. The nursery specializes in orchids and bromeliads. She started the business in her garage back in 1995. Pardo hit the flea market on weekends, and started selling to a growing list of area florists the following Mondays. Pardo was startled at how quickly her business grew. By ’98, Blooming Freedom moved to its 5-acre property. That’s a lot more than Pardo was expecting when she started the business. “It was just a weekend thing,” she said. But, Pardo’s business plan followed actor Barry Williams’ famous quote: “The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and

express yourself through your passion.” Pardo not only loves flowers, but giving folks tips about growing the perfect orchids and bromeliads. “A lot of people kill these plants with overwatering,” she said. “We water orchids only once a week, once every 10 days.” There are plenty of tips for successful orchid growing at bloomingfreedom.com. For example, beginning orchid growers should stick to established plants — all the better if those plants are in bud with at least one open flower. Orchids have different lighting needs, ranging from the phalaenopsis on the lower to the vanda on the higher ends of light preferences. Direct sunlight is not the orchid’s favorite. All the different orchids prefer diffused light. Orchids also like the air humidity around 40 to 70 percent. There are a few easy ways to ensure this with home plants. Another tip about orchids — they don’t like stagnant air. Like people, the flowers enjoy ceiling fans. Of course, tips are also available by visiting Blooming Freedom. “We have classes for free,” Pardo

Orchids at 10 a.m., and bromeliads at 2 p.m. “We get 50 people in the classes, sometimes more,” Pardo said. What’s interested a lot of folks is Pardo’s talent at growing full-sun

bromeliads. “There’re not many bromeliads that grow in full sun,” Pardo said. In addition to selling the flowers and teaching classes, Blooming Freedom has everything needed to grow them, from soil to the

try on Earth with the ability and the willingness to call the evil for what it is, confront it and defeat it.” Before his speech, Rubio said he plans to make amendments to his immigration policy and begin to strengthen elements of the bill in question. Defending the bill, Rubio said it enforces entry and exit tracking, includes $5.5 billion in border security funding and puts illegal immigrants through a years-long rigorous process to obtain citizenship. “They’ll have to come forward. They’ll have to undergo a criminal background check, a national security background check,” Rubio said. “They have to pay a $2,000 fine and an application fee. They don’t qualify for any federal benefits. They only get the permit for six years. They have to come back and reapply and prove they’ve been paying taxes.” Rubio also dodged questions about a 2016 presidential run. “I have my hands full,” Rubio said. “I don’t have time for thinking about the future quite like that.” Attendee and Tradition resident Teri Pinney said although Rubio’s immigration reform isn’t perfect,

it’s a starting point. “He has developed at least a solution where others are full of criticism. I like that. That shows vision and that shows leadership.” Palm City resident Medora Reading said before Rubio’s speech she was concerned his immigration bill would grant immediate amnesty to the nation’s estimated 11 million illegal immigrants. “I didn’t know how I felt about that issue and he explained why we had to address it in a manner I understood. I didn’t understand it before,” Reading said. “... He made me realize we need to know who’s here, why they’re here and what they’re doing.” Ominous skies outside brightened by bolts of lightning didn’t deter a crowd from gathering on an aligning sidewalk to rally against Rubio’s proposed immigration reform. Jack Oliver, legislative director of the nonprofit corporation Floridians for Immigration Enforcement, disagrees with Rubio’s policy, claiming the senator misled constituents during his campaign

the hotly debated immigration-reform bill he helped write. Big government is the catalyst to a stagnant economy, Rubio said during the St. Lucie Republican Party’s annual Lincoln Day dinner at the Polish American Club in Port St. Lucie. Calling Republicans the “party of upward mobility,” Rubio said the political group consists of hard workers who are capable of the American dream if large government doesn’t stifle the process. Rubio commended the party for allowing small businesses to blossom. “If you are successful economically, if you are successful professionally, we celebrate it. We hold you up as an example and an inspiration,” Rubio said. “But for the most part, if you have made it, all you want government to do is basically leave you alone so you can continue to make it and help others make it, too.” Although he believes the war against terrorism will endure for generations, Rubio, who stressed the U.S. shouldn’t get involved in unnecessary conflicts, said the U.S. is the only country capable of one day stopping extremists. “We have got to be committed to win it, because there is still evil in the world and evil must be defeated,” Rubio said. “And the U.S. remains the only coun-

No other local news companies won more than we did. “We walked away with 12 awards, but keep in mind that we only had four months of papers to pull entries from. Imagine what we will do with 12 months’ of papers!” The breakdown went as follows: four first place, one second and seven third-place awards. Chief photographer Mitch Kloorfain was the big winner with three first places and one third. First place: Ad campaign, Martin County dentist Dr. Michael Sohl.

Jewelry is intensely personal. What you wear expresses your personality, the events in your life, your feelings, your dreams. And nothing does that better than Custom handcrafted jewelry designed and created just for you by a master craftsman. Bring Terry a picture of your Deep Sea catch, show us your style, tell us your taste and we’ll create a unique, made to order, custom jewelry design that will be as much a part of you as your finger print. Terry’s son, Joseph loves fishing and inspired the idea for her to create custom made Sea Life so you may “Wear Your Memories of the first Sailfish you caught Close To Your Heart”. The marine life jewelry such as the Manatee, Humpback Whale, Sea Lion, Sailfish, the Blue Marlin, Tuna, Sea Turtles, Dolphin, whatever lives in the Ocean, Rivers or Lakes were inspired by his love of fishing He once told her “Mom when you create a piece of jewelry for fishermen it must look just like their catch Terry always felt that jewelry was a sculpture. Diamonds and Precious stones, I believe, should be set in gold as artfully carved masterpieces. Bring Terry a picture of your big catch & and she will create a memory that will last forever.

leading up to his November 2010 victory. Oliver believes Rubio’s reform lacks backbone, making it too easy to gain citizenship. “When he was running for Senate, he promised there would be no legalization and now he’s trying to backtrack and redefine the word ‘amnesty,’” the Indiantown resident said. “It has nothing to do with the pathway to citizenship. It has nothing to do with green cards. It has to do with legalization. When you forgive the penalty of deportation, that’s amnesty.” Mexico City native Jaser Colin stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Oliver for a drastically different reason. The teen said Rubio

is his only hope at becoming a citizen in the country he has called home since age 8. Current immigration policy is flawed and handles undocumented workers inhumanely, Colin said. “Illegals, as they choose to call them, get treated as if they weren’t people. They get mistreated,” the Fort Pierce resident said. “They don’t really come here for anything but work. That’s all they want to do.” “First of all, there are better jobs here. We can progress better. Right now I’m finishing high school and I’m going to college,” he said. “I couldn’t afford that in Mexico and I’m not getting it for free here. I have to work for it. And I’ve had to work all my life for it.”

The Lego Club helps younger children start learning about the applications of science, technology, engineering and math. The Martin County Library System is making at least half of its children and youth programs related to STEM education. Cummings is launching Discover Science @ Your Library, a monthly science lesson, on Wednesday, May 15.

I’m so happy I could say I work at SunTrust …” Looking toward the future, the 15-year banking veteran said her long-term goal is to continue to help people achieve the American dream. “I’m going to remain here and just keep working and helping my clients (become) able to buy homes.”

ST. LUCIE WEST — For the first time in five years, financial loan officers are seeing substantial signs of hope. St. Lucie West SunTrust Bank assistant vice president and mortgage loan consultant Monica Brown says, the area’s economic future looks bright, a stark contrast from the crippling years since 2008 when unemployment numbers skyrocketed and foreclosed homes were a common sight. “We are seeing a huge comeback … I’m getting appraisals in now, where I’m shocked. It’s a good shock.” Borrower and bank morale has also risen, Brown said. “The atmosphere has definitely changed. It’s not going to come roaring back like how we were in 2005, 2006 when loan officers could literally just sit at their desks and have people waiting in the lobby,” said Brown, who cited a recent trend report that predicts a 44 percent increase in home buying in 2014. “All they did was write loan after loan after loan. It was just like that because of the big boom.” The Tradition resident said shortly after she joined the branch, St. Lucie West’s oldest bank established in 1995, the market began to take a nosedive. “Everything kind of went back to old-fashioned loan writing. Lots and lots of documentation, no shortcut-type underwriting or anything like that,” Brown said of an ominous 2007. “The values totally plummeted,” she said. Brown said she’s proud to be a part of the SunTrust

MARTIN COUNTY — As the needle on the thermometer rises, many high school football programs across the Treasure Coast recently began their preparations for their respective spring games held at the end of the month. While the focus for the coaching staffs is on player development and seeing who is deserving of playing time, Martin County football head coach Chuck Kenyon sees the opening of spring practice as an opportunity to add another generation to his Tiger football family. Entering his eighth season as Tigers head coach, Kenyon is coming off a season where he led Martin County to its third straight postseason appearance, a feat that’s a first in school history. Despite finishing the 2012 season with a losing record (5-6), the Tigers rallied to capture a dramatic 34-31 opening round playoff victory at Charlotte High School. It was the second straight year the Tigers traveled to Charlotte and brought home a playoff win.

With the spring game approaching, Kenyon is looking to continue the program’s momentum. After the offseason workouts, what has impressed Kenyon is the amount of kids looking to continue it with him. “In workouts, I’ve consistently had 70-75 kids come out and that’s not including incoming freshmen,” Kenyon said. “That’s all current freshmen, sophomores and juniors. I think that’s a great number to have. “We have a lot of guys that are coming back that have bought into what we are trying to do and we’re looking out of the windshield.” While looking toward the future, Kenyon is calling on the past help build his ball club. “I’m bringing in a couple guys who played for me in the past to help us coach and develop these kids,” Kenyon said. “I think that’s a testament to what they feel about how we do things Martin County High School.” One of the players returning to assist with this current crop of players is former Tigers running back Lyle Dankenbring. Dankenbring graduated from Martin County in 2008 and went to

star at the University of Central Florida. While at UCF, Dankenbring was named an Academic All-American in 2012. Dankenbring’s return symbolizes a deeper message that Kenyon attempts to instill into his program. Putting on the blue and gold is more than just playing football for you. It’s about building a bond with the brothers you go to battle and for the school and community you represent, lasting long after the playing days are over. “If they don’t want to come back and show that loyalty to the program, then I feel like I’m doing something wrong,” Kenyon said. “If they actually come back wanting to see you or wanting to help out by coaching, then I’m doing something right. “So to have some of my old players come back, it brings a level of continuity and togetherness that I’m trying to instill in this current group. It’s about building a loyal family that extending beyond the time they walk through this locker room.” Martin County will travel to compete against at Rockledge High School on May 24.

Additionally, Hellenschmidt is planning an art project that will further teach children about plant growth and life cycles. “The class is limited to 20, and they can register at any library,” Hellenschmidt said. “I’ve got kids signed up already.” The Discover Science series is for children 7 to 12. Future sessions will include chemistry experiments with lemons, and exploration of one of the four basic forces of physics — magnetism.

New county attorney now on the job By Patrick McCallister Staff writer pmccallister@yourvoiceweekly.com MARTIN COUNTY — Michael Durham has taken his seat as Martin County’s new attorney. Sure, he’s got some pairs of the obligatory shiny shoes lawyers have to wear sometimes, but the 45-year-old would just as soon don some snake boots. “I’ve caught many alligators, snakes, coons and armadillos,” he said. Durham started the job at the last regular meeting of the Martin Commission, Tuesday, April 23. He grew up in parts south of Martin. “Plantation, when I was born, was the boondocks,” he said.

PORT ST. LUCIE — Everglades Area Health Education Center and Workforce Solutions have launched a public awareness campaign to promote Everglades AHEC’s tobacco cessation services to new audiences throughout its four-county region-Quit Burning Cash, Quit Smoking Today. Workforce Solutions will provide information on their website and in their centers for the Quit Burning Cash, Quit Smoking Today campaign to educate participants about the Everglades AHEC’s cessation programs; Quit Smoking Now uses a six-week format and Tools to Quit uses a two-hour format. Everglades Area Health Education Center seeks the enrollment of tobacco users wanting to quit and will provide all the necessary tools, resources and skills they will need to be set up for success. “Quitting smoking can make a significant financial impact on a struggling family affected by unemployment,” Workforce Solu-

tions President/CEO Richard Stetson said. “This partnership allows our staff to refer interested clients to the Everglades AHEC program.” For those trying to quit alone, the success rate is quite low, around 7 percent. These cessation programs have a significantly higher success rate of approximately 33 percent. Workforce Solutions will refer interested job seekers and local businesses to the program. If you are interested in being referred or learning more about this free program, please log on to the Workforce Solutions at www.YourWorkforceSolutions.com and fill out the referral form. Everglades Area Health Education Center is funded by the Florida Department of Health to provide tobacco dependence treatment services to help people quit using tobacco. They also train current health professionals and health professions students about how to work with patients that use tobacco. Ev-

PARK from page 4 people could have trails throughout the area. “Over the course of years, the Trails Association has been at times very politely knocking on doors and showing their neighbors maps and saying, ‘You’ve got a public-private right of way on your property and you’ve got it fenced.’ Over the years, they became at times more forceful writing letters saying, ‘You need to take the fences down.’” The association’s web site, palmcityfarmstrails.com, states that the original developer, the Palm Beach County Land Company, platted portions of the land for public roadways, and despite the county’s failure to claim them they remain open to pubic use. Haddox said the situation has long been untenable. “For me, it’s a very sad situation to have any community pitting neighbor against neighbor,” he said. “The situation needs to get resolved.” Additionally, Haddox said he’s awaiting answers from

www.YourVoiceWeekly.com the new county attorney, Michael Durham, about whether the county would essentially inherit maintenance and liability for the entire contended trail by adding a link through a park. “That concerned me,” he said. “That’s another question I had. Someone’s riding a horse and someone comes through on an (all-terrain vehicle) and the horse gets spooked and the rider is thrown off — who’s responsible?” The commission approved plans to build the park with four baseball fields, a playground, picnic areas, an open play field, and infrastructure. Gabriella Ferraro, communications outreach director, said the commission has put out a request for proposals from contractors able to construct the park. “Now there’s a bid open on our website for contractors to bid at approximately $3.4 million,” she said. “The board will have final approval (on bidding companies) at a later meeting.

BRIDGE from page 1 been overcapacity for about a decade, preventing some new construction. Martin County Commissioner John Haddox, Palm City, said he has some concerns that the bridge will generate too many trips on Mapp Road between S.W. Martin Downs Blvd. and S.W. Martin Highway. The area is part of Palm City’s Community Redevelopment Area. He hopes to get additional traffic studies done before the bridge opens. Denti figures that’ll be in November. The Martin County Board of County Commissioners in 2011 voted to name the 3,100-foot structure Veterans Memorial Bridge. The Federal Highway Administration is funding the $65 million construction through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The project was originally estimated to cost more than $120 million. However, due to the construction bust in 2008, the cost of building materials dropped significantly, and contractors generally lowered their bids. The project was slated to be finished by summer, but there have been some delays. Construction started in April, 2011. The bridge spans a portion of the St. Lucie River that is part of the Okeechobee Waterway, a 1937 Army Corps of Engineers project that connected natural waterways to create a 152mile shortcut across Florida. Those cables weaving through the bridge are made of high-carbon steel designed for super strength and low relaxation.

“Those qualities are produced by a rigorous manufacturing process,” Denti said. “It’s a very specialized industry.” Relaxation is a metallurgical term describing how metal will stretch over time under pressure. An experiment to demonstrate the concept is to size a rubber band and place it around an object it narrowly fits when stretched. After a few days, remove the rubber band and size it again. “The rubber band no longer returns to its original size,” Denti said. The stretching also weakens the rubber band, making it easier to break. The same’s true for metal cables that aren’t made with that important low relaxation. “We don’t like lagging steel,” Denti said. Additionally, workers have to be very careful about concrete they pour curing too quickly. Concrete cured too fast is prone to splitting. “The kiss of death for any concrete structure is cracks,” Denti said. Cracks allow moisture to reach steel girders and corrode them. As steel corrodes, it swells, which can generate more concrete cracks. Rachael Wallace, public info officer for the project, said community interest in the project remains high. “As we’re approaching the bridge opening, viewing the (areal pictures) of each month is great for anyone to see the bridge coming together,” she said. “As we get closer (to finishing), people can see we’re closing the bridge gaps.” Those pictures are at indianstreetbridge.com. For information about group presentations, call (772) 283-4323.

TREASURE COAST — May Is National Foster Care Month! During this time, Hibiscus Children’s Center would like to extend special recognition and thanks to all the wonderful, selfless families and single parents that come forward and provide loving homes for abused, abandoned and neglected children here on the Treasure Coast. The number of abused children in our community continues to grow, and they desperately need caring foster and/or adoptive parents to take them into their hearts and homes. Our faltering economy and poverty at a level we haven’t seen in decades is making it even more difficult for families to care for their own children. Children have profound losses when they come into foster care; they have lost their sense of safety, their family, their possessions, their community, and their sense of self. They need a sense of normalcy and an overwhelming outpouring of love and nur-

turing. Foster parents provide a loving, safe and nurturing haven for these children and help them begin the process of healing and instill in the children a sense of value and security. Foster parents make all the difference in these children’s lives and make a significant impact on their future. We are truly grateful to these incredible families and individuals who have made children a priority in their communities and in their lives.

Martin County sheriff donates TV to nonprofit Tykes and Teens MARTIN COUNTY — Following a visit and tour of nonprofit children’s counseling center Tykes and Teens, Martin County Sheriff’s Office representatives were impressed with the work the agency was doing for local kids in need, and eager to offer assistance. Tykes and Teens’ employees mentioned that the television in the training room was broken, and the next day the agency received a call to say that the Martin County Sheriff’s Western Operations Division, under the direction of Sheriff William Snyder, would donate a television to Tykes and Teens, using funds from a specialized private grant

established to help children in our community. The television will help in the staff training process as well as give counselors the ability to use therapeutic viewing materials in group sessions, including the Adolescent Substance Abuse Program, an alcohol and drug prevention and treatment program for local youth. Sheriff Snyder presented the donation at a Tykes and Teens Board meeting and commented that “Tykes and Teens is an outstanding organization that we are proud to support.” Established in 1996, Tykes

He has a dental CAT scan unit on premises for computer guided implant placement protocols for Nobel Biocares All-on Four/Teeth in a DayTM procedures. All-on-Four/Teeth in a DayTM was developed to minimize the number of implants required to anchor a complete set of dentures. A full arch can be replaced with four implants in a single visit, as opposed to as many as eight implants and multiple office visits.
