PALM CITY — A train running through the center of Old Palm City from Mapp Road to the St. Lucie River. Well, not the sort with locomotives and tracks. “A stormwater treatment train,”

Kevin Freeman, Martin County’s community development director, said at the last regular meeting of the Old Palm City Neighborhood Advisory Committee, on Monday, May 19. Freeman said the county is examining ways to eliminate the need for large, cumbersome stormwater retention and treatment areas

when planned work starts on the Mapp Road by instead having a series of small treatment areas in

Talented artist, backed by all-star band, to debut ‘Salute’ to wounded heroes Free Memorial Day weekend concert May 25 at Crest Theater to benefit Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes FOR VETERAN VOICE

PALM CITY— Cassidy Diana was first exposed to the sacrifices of America’s military through the multiple tours of duty served by her father. Those experiences led the aspiring singer and songwriter from Palm City to pen her first song, “The Call,” in tribute to her dad. Last December, Cassidy was invited to sing the National Anthem at the Road to Recovery Conference, a five-day, all-expenses-paid event in Orlando for combat-wounded veterans hosted by the Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes. She was so moved by the Coalition’s work that she composed another piece, entitled “Salute,” and pledged all proceeds from the song to the veterans’ service organization. On Sunday, May 25, Cassidy

will officially debut “Salute” at a free Memorial Day concert at the Delray Center for the Arts. She will be joined onstage at the Crest Theater by the all-star band of world-renowned musicians that performed on the track, produced by SeaSide Music Management, Technical Productions and OffShore Talent, including The Livesays, featuring Billy Livesay, songwriter, guitarist and vocalist who played for 13 years with Clarence Clemons’ Temple of Soul, Tony Stevens’ Original Foghat, and has multiple credited recordings and performances with many other chart-topping bands; The Vinyl Connection Band, featuring five world-touring musicians from Brooks & Dunn, Foreigner, Three Dog Night, Poco, Michael McDonald, The Rascals, Leon Russell, Whitesnake and many others. Also assisting are Wayne Nelson, lead singer and bassist of the Little River Band; and Phil Kenzie, who has played saxophone on countless iconic records, including The Beatles’ “Let It Be” and The Eagles’ “Long

On Sunday, May 25, Palm City resident Cassidy Diana will officially debut ‘Salute at a free Memorial Day concert at the Delray Center for the Arts.

TREASURE COAST — During a recent stop in St. Lucie West to promote his new book, former U.S. Rep. Allen West hailed America as a land of endless opportunity but, criticized the country’s shortfalls, one being its inability to provide clean water to its residents in his home state of Florida. West, 53, who once represented the 22nd district of Congress, which included parts of the Treasure Coast, said he once fought to repair the damaged Indian Lagoon and find a solution to heavy Lake Okeechobee discharges laden with dirty water and bacteria. “I was in the Army forever, so a lot of these Corps of Engineers guys I know very well, and we brought all the coastal commu-

Morales memorialized Nicole Rodriguez Staff writer

nrodriguez@YourVoiceWeekly.com

ST. LUCIE COUNTY —A year after his violent death in the line of duty, St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Sgt. Gary Morales, 35, was eternally memorialized in stone on two sacred walls that pay tribute to his selfless sacrifice. Morales’ name was engraved in the granite walls of the Florida Sheriffs Law Enforcement Memorial in Tallahassee in April and unveiled on May 5 during National Peace Officers Week. Members of the Morales family, Sheriff Ken Mascara, Chief Deputy Garry Wilson and the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office Honor Guard visited the state’s capital for the ceremonial reveal. It was a bittersweet moment for the sergeant’s father, a retired New York Police sergeant and St. Lucie West resident. “We are proud of him, very proud of him. We miss him,” William Morales said at a May 7 St. Lucie County Sheriff’s ceremony that honored the agency’s six deputies lost in the line of duty since its beginnings. Gary Morales and 10 other fallen St. Lucie County law enforcement officers were remembered during a service at St. Bernadette Catholic Church in St. Lucie West later that day. “It’s nice that they have his name etched up here, but we miss him dearly.” In 2002, the Florida Sheriffs Association established the me-

morial to honor all the heroes of Sheriffs’ Offices killed in the line of duty. Names are added each April, for those who died the prior year. Last year, four Florida sheriff’s deputies, including Morales, were killed in the line of duty. Sgt. Gary Morales was fatally shot on Feb. 28, 2013 during a traffic stop. The man responsible for his death is awaiting trial in a Martin County jail. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. William Morales said being surrounded by other families who share his pain was a unique experience. “Many of the survivors of fallen heroes were there and it was a great day. It was very comforting,” Morales said. “You just feel for them also that they’ve lost their loved ones.” The service and sacrifice of the nation’s fallen law enforcement officers should not go unnoticed, Sheriff Mascara said. “Each of the deputies that were put on the wall had a story, and when you hear those stories, you realize how fortunate we as a community and as country are to have warriors, men and women, that go out every day to protect us,” Mascara said. Morales’s name was also added to the marble walls of the National Law Enforcement Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C., along with 285 other fallen law enforcement officers. Sheriff Mascara and members of the Morales family attended the event. On average, one law enforcement officer is killed in the line of duty somewhere in the United

Gary Morales, at the National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service in Washington, D.C., held May 15. St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara and other members of the Morales family attended the event. Sgt. Gary Morales was shot to death during a traffic stop in Fort Pierce on Feb. 28, 2013. States every 58 hours. Since the first known line-of-duty death in 1791, more than 20,000 U.S. law enforcement officers have made the ultimate sacrifice, statistics show. William Morales said his fallen son was a special kind of cop. “Gary became a cop, but he became a super cop and I’m not saying this because he’s my son, but because he was just witty and sharp,” Morales said. “He knew the streets, he knew his job, so I lost a son, but Florida lost a crime fighting hero, a tremendous loss.” A glance at Gary Morales’s record of service shows the Bronx native was destined for his chosen line of work, which William Morales said is in the family’s blood. Sgt. Gary Morales’s brother, Brad Morales is a St. Lucie County Sheriff’s deputy and Gary Morales’s nephew, Nick, 16, plans on following in his grandfather’s and uncle’s footsteps. Gary Morales joined the Air Force in 1995, serving first in San Antonio, Texas, before being stationed in Panama from 1996 to 1998. He returned to San Antonio and was honorably dis-

charged in 1999. Morales received the Air Force Achievement Medal, Outstanding Unit Award, Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Overseas Long Tour Ribbon Longevity Service Award Ribbon and Air Force Training Ribbon. He joined the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office in October 2000 and served in the uniform patrol, school resource, SWAT, special investigations and training unit. He was also a firearms, defensive tactics, driving and CrossFit instructor. In 2001, Morales went undercover and posed as a high school student in “Operation Safe Kid.” His efforts helped the Sheriff’s Office make 21 arrests on 73 charges ranging from drug violations to removing serial numbers from a firearm. Morales was promoted to sergeant Jan. 18, 2013. His departmental honors include four unit citations, three citations for exceptional duty and two Safe Driver Awards. Morales held bachelor’s and master’s degrees in criminal justice from Keiser University.

TREASURE COAST — The Treasure Coast would benefit from All Aboard Florida if it’s constructed, Russell “Rusty” Roberts said. He’s the vice president of corporate development at Florida East Coast Industries, owner of the proposed, high-speed passenger rail service that’d run from downtown Miami to the Orlando International Airport. The 235mile service could start as early as 2016. Roberts was speaking at the Martin County Taxpayers Association’s All Aboard Florida Community Forum at Stuart’s Blake Library on Thursday, May 15. “This is the initial phase of what we hope is an expanded system,” Roberts said.

tandem from Mapp to the river. “We’re looking for locations we can hold the water, clean it and move it on,” Freeman said at the meeting. In an interview after the meeting, Freeman said the county has identified three small properties in the Old Palm City neighborhood east of Mapp close to 28th and 29th streets that could start an innovative, and less obtrusive, approach to handling storm water. “The new part of this is to analyze on a neighborhood level a storm water treatment approach,” he said. Freeman was unable to identify the exact locations of the three properties by press time. He said for now the properties are unused. “They’re doing nothing,” he said. “They’re properties that (the county) purchased for one reason or another.” He said the county is now examining the hydrodynamics around the area along with rights of way to see if it can create the series of small treatment areas without acquiring additional rights of way or property. “You’re talking about single lots,” he said. “They’re not big. They don’t have to be big if you have the right system.” Palm City has been the site of other innovative approaches to stormwater treatment. For example, the county is testing whether it can reduce nutrients such as nitrogen and prosperous reaching the St. Lucie River by using a Florida company’s floating planters at the Old Palm City West STA, that’s the stormwater treatment area nestled between Cornell and Butler avenues by 35th Street. The beemats, as they’re called, were installed in October. Additionally, Bessey Creek will get 30 years of prosperous scrubbing with an unusual mix of natural and chemical technology, Hybrid Wetland Chemical Treatment. At its regular meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 7, the Martin County Commission approved the 30-year lease of a 46-acre storm-water treatment area adjacent to Citrus Boulevard to the state. The area was constructed in 2008. The agriculture department will put about $2 million into renovations

to adapt it to the hybrid-treatment technology. “It’s a technology that will take inflow water from any land use — urban, agricultural, industrial — and treat it with alum,” said Rich Budell, director of office of water policy at the Florida Depart of Agriculture and Consumer Services. “It’s an aluminum sulfate product. When you mix that chemical into water, it preferentially bonds with phosphorus.” The advisory committee’s last meeting was in February. At that meeting, the committee unanimously agreed to recommend that the county commission acting as the Community Redevelopment Agency to adopt a Mapp Road Town Center Design that included divided service roads with onstreet parking, landscaping, bicycle lanes and 8-foot sidewalks that allow water to seep right through. Mapp is the centerpiece of Palm City’s Community Redevelopment Area. The CRA, adopted in 2002, includes 610 acres, and has about $1.3 million available for projects, which can circumstantially be combined with grants and other county dollars. The area is nestled along Mapp Road from Southwest Rio Vista Way south to Southwest All American Boulevard. It goes from the St. Lucie River South Fork west to a few blocks past Mapp. There’s a western extension nestled along Southwest 34th and Southwest 36th streets to Southwest Berry Avenue. In a CRA some county taxes paid on property values higher than what they were in a base year — when the area was established — stay in that district for economic development and blight elimination for a set period of time. It’s called Tax Increment Financing. In Martin the amount of that money CRAs retain for projects is between 50 and 95 percent. The commission annually decides the rate. This year the rate is 75 percent. The primary goal of Palm City’s 30-year CRA was construction of The Mapp Road Town Center Design, which was first crafted in 2003 and revised since. In short, the aim is to create a downtown-like aesthetic to Mapp. Freeman said storm-water management is a central concern to efforts to vitalize Mapp to be a thriving commercial center.

Patrick McCallister/staff photographer Russell ‘Rusty’ Roberts pitched about 500 Treasure Coast residents on All Aboard Florida at a forum organized by the Martin County Taxpayers Association, May 15. Roberts is vice president of corporate development at Florida East Coast Industries, which is proposing the 235-mile, high-speed passenger rail that would cut through the Treasure Coast as it transported passengers from downtown Miami to the Orlando International Airport.

ABOARD from page 7 Treasure Coast for now. If current plans, announced in 2012, are

realized, the service would run 32 high-speed trips a day north and south, 16 north and 16 south from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. The company uses the same tracks for

freight trains. Local opposition has been growing rapidly to the proposed All Aboard Florida. Many of the objections center around the train bridge traversing the St. Lucie River nestled between the Roosevelt and Old Dixie Highway bridges. Boating businesses and groups say that the 32 additional trains a day will effectively close the St. Lucie to navigation and destroy the marine industry on the Treasure Coast. The most visible opposition group, Florida Not All Aboard, didn’t exist until the middle of February. In about three months, the group has garnered about 14,000 electronic and paper petition signatures opposing All Aboard Florida. It also attracted Representative Patrick Murphy, D-Jupiter, along with commissioners from Martin and Indian River counties, and a South Florida radio personality, to speak at its first rally. That was on May 4. Roberts said at the more recent forum that rail is an increasingly attractive option for helping to satisfy Florida’s growing transportation needs as many critical roadways are reaching maximum expansions and cannot accommodate more traffic. He said the Treasure Coast will in coming decades benefit from the expansion of rail. “Stuart is a logical place to consider a stop,” he told the audience. He later said, “There are future opportunities all over the state, because of (All Aboard Florida).” Nevertheless, Roberts didn’t seem to be persuading the about 500 attendees, many of whom wore shirts and pins showing opposition to the proposed rail service. Palm City’s Tom Rising was among them. “That’s his demeanor — I don’t care about you guys,” Rising said. “That’s how he came across to me.” Ed Fielding — Martin County Commissioner, Stuart — gave opening remarks at the forum. In a telephone interview after the meeting, he said information about All Aboard Florida has been coming out painfully slowly giving elected officials and the public little opportunity to form educated opinions. Nevertheless, he’s sure about one thing. “I believe this will destroy business in Stuart,” Fielding said. “It’ll stop it completely.” That’s because the train tracks that would carry All Aboard Florida’s passenger cars go through the heart of downtown Stuart. Fielding said he took some comfort from learning at the meeting that there’s a possibility Florida East Coast will move some of its freight traffic onto tracks owned by CSX Transportation. Those

www.YourVoiceWeekly.com tracks run westward through Okeechobee toward Winter Haven. Fred Wise, manager of the Florida Department of Transportation’s Rail and Motor Carrier Operations Office, said at the forum the move of freight westward seems likely if the passenger service launches. “These companies have been discussing it at high levels and I haven’t seen any deal busters,” Wise said. Many opponents believe All Aboard Florida should also move to those westward tracks. Roberts nixed the proposal. “The passenger railroad will stay on Florida East Coast tracks,” he said. St. Lucie County Commissioner Chris Dzadovsky was at the May 4 rally as a participant, not speaker. He had a scheduling conflict preventing him from attending the May 15 forum. He, too, complained that critical information about All Aboard Florida has come out piecemeal. “My concern is that the story continues to evolve,” Dzadovsky said. “As an elected official, it’s hard to get a handle on something when you don’t know what the facts are. It’s a moving target.” Dzadovsky said in St. Lucie County, the passenger train would particularly affect Fort Pierce and St. Lucie Village. “The entire section that goes through St. Lucie is a residential center and it goes through the center of Fort Pierce,” he said. “It would shut down Fort Pierce.” Representative Murphy spoke at the opposition rally and at the forum. Among his concerns, he said at both, are the proposed 110 mph speeds the passenger trains may hit in certain areas, along with the company’s request for an about $1.5 billion Railroad Rehabilitation & Improvement Financing loan from the Department of Transportation’s Federal Railroad Administration. If granted, it would be the largest loan of its type ever. “It’s important to scrutinize that loan,” Murphy said at the forum. He added, “There’s not a single passenger rail in this country that’s profitable, that aren’t subsidized by something else.” Roberts said that some of Amtrak’s routes are profitable. “The Northeast corridor could be a profitable system, but it supports the long-distance runs,” he said. Congress created Amtrak in 1970 to keep intercity rail operating in the United States. Congress annually subsidizes the passenger rail service, which has service between Miami and Orlando. It’s not high-speed service

similar to what All Aboard Florida is proposing. The railroad administration is now drafting an Environmental Impact Statement on All Aboard Florida that will likely be published by the end of June. After it’s published, there’ll be a 45- to 90-day comment period. After that comment time, a final draft will be written, followed by the railroad administration’s Record of Decision. Roberts told skeptics that Florida East Coast didn’t rush into All Aboard Florida lightly, and the company intends to make money taking passengers to and fro. “You don’t make this kind of investment without studying the market very, very carefully,” he said. Information about All Aboard Florida is at the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council’s website, www. tcrpc.org. Florida Not All Aboard has a website, www. floridanotallaboard.com.

May is for mental health Staff writer

nrodriguez@YourVoiceWeekly.com

TREASURE COAST — Each year, May is designated as a month to raise awareness for mental health illness with the objective of decreasing the stigma of seeking treatment. Treasure Coast mental health therapists say sound mental health for children, especially, should be a top priority. “We want to spread awareness of mental health issues our children are facing,” said Caroline Beale, director of mental health services at Hibiscus Children’s Center. “If they’re not addressed early, it can get progressively worse,” Beale warned. Overlooking mental illnesses in children can lead to a higher rate of incarceration, substance abuse, suicide and chronic depression, Beale said. The latest data from the National Institute of Mental Health reports that about 8 percent of teens ages 13-18 have an anxiety disorder, with symptoms commonly emerging around age 6. However, of these teens, only 18 percent

received mental health care. About 11 percent of adolescents have a depressive disorder by age 18, statistics show. Hibiscus Children’s Center, which serves the Treasure Coast, including Okeechobee County, currently sees 300 child clients for mental health issues, Beale said. The center has served the area for 27 years with a mission to provide safety for abused, abandoned and neglected children through prevention programs, residential programs, shelter programs, and recovery programs. Most children who suffer from mental health illness have experienced a trauma, but that’s not always the case, Beale said. There’s also no shame in seeking help, she added. “You might be seen as vulnerable or weak, but anybody can experience an episode of depression or anxiety,” Beale said. “Your mental health has a direct relation to your overall physical health.” Beale said parents should pay close attention to their child’s behavior to avoid missing a mental

FOR YOUR VOICE NEWS & VIEWS

Great things happen when people from all walks of life give back to the community through United Way of Martin County.   United Way offers residents and businesses the opportunity to give back by encouraging them to support the annual fundraising campaign, advocate for a cause they’re passionate about, volunteer their time or help create a community of character.   By focusing on six measurable strategic priorities — ending hunger, strengthening families, good health for all, increasing access to early education, creating job opportunities and ensuring safety — United Way is determined to improve the lives of Martin County residents by inspiring the community to LIVE UNITED.   “Caring is a community tradition in Martin County,” says Amy Albury, United Way’s 2013-14 campaign chairwoman. “United Way gives people an opportunity to care and I’m extremely proud of what we were able to accomplish together this year.”   On May 6, United Way honored those individuals and businesses that made significant contributions during the past year at its annual Champions of the Community awards dinner. The event took place at Willoughby Golf Club in Stuart where Albury

had the privilege of announcing to the community that United Way’s 2013-14 campaign had raised $2.55 million — the largest amount in the organization’s 41year history.   This year’s campaign success was bolstered by its three largest contributors — Publix Super Markets, Florida Power & Light, and the Sailfish Point community — that combined contributed more than $1.1 million. Publix Super Markets raised $466,326 – the largest corporate gift in United Way’s history — while FPL contributed $404,912 and Sailfish Point contributed $259,470.   “This year’s success would not have been possible without the collective support of Martin County residents and businesses,” said Jim Vojcsik, executive director of United Way. “We thank everyone who continues to support our mission and it was our pleasure to recognize this year’s champions for all they have done.”   2013-14 Champions of the Community Corporate Champion: Publix Super Markets LIVE UNITED Award: Florida Power & Light, Martin Health System, UPS and Wells Fargo Community Champion: Sailfish Point Agency Spirit Award: Caring

TREASURE COAST — Former Treasure Coast chief assistant public defender who handled many of the area’s most notorious criminal cases, died in a diving incident last week in Key Largo. Mark Harllee, 54, was diving 150 yards offshore with his mother and wife nearby at the time of this death, a Monroe County Sheriff’s report states. Harllee, an advanced certified scuba diver who dived the waters before, would come to the surface every so often to let his family know he was OK, Harllee’s mother Elnora Harllee told authorities. When Elnora noticed her son had not come to the surface for an hour, she swam from the shore to find him where she last saw him, the report states. The two women were watching Harllee dive from Elnora’s elevated porch. Harllee’s mother, who found her son’s tickle stick and net in the water, called 911 after she couldn’t find her son. Monroe County Fire Rescue found Harllee’s body near his dive site and pulled him aboard a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission boat where they performed CPR. Harllee was pronounced dead on the scene. The investigation remains open pending an autopsy. Police don’t suspect foul play. Harllee and his wife, Emily, had been married for a month. The two were in Key Largo visiting Harllee’s mother. The couple arrived at Harllee’s mother’s home

the night before. The dive gear Harllee used appeared new and was stored at his mother’s home, the report states. Harllee’s former boss, public defender Diamond Litty of PGA Village, said her office was saddened by the news. “For many years Mark helped build this office. As many people know, he handled a great number of the most serious cases in our office for many years,” Litty said. “He’ll be missed terribly.” Harllee left his post at the public defender’s office last July. The Fort Pierce resident became a private attorney with an office in Stuart. Harllee worked for the 19th Circuit Public Defender’s Office for more than two decades. The office covers Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties. As a death penalty-certified lawyer, Harllee represented Eriese Tisdale shortly before he left his post. Tisdale is facing the death penalty in last year’s shooting death of St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Sgt. Gary Morales. Harllee represented Tyler Hadley, who brutally bludgeoned his Port St. Lucie parents to death with a hammer in 2011. He also represented Eugene McWatters, a serial killer from Port Salerno convicted in the 2004 deaths of several women and Eryn Allegra, a Port St. Lucie woman sentenced to life in prison for smothering her child to death on Christmas Day 2008. Harllee graduated from law school at the University of Florida in 1984, according to The Florida Bar Association.

St Lucie Battery & Tire opens store No. 13 New location offers convenience to area business district FOR YOUR VOICE NEWS & VIEWS

TREASURE COAST — In keeping with its growth projections for 2014, St. Lucie Battery & Tire has opened its 13th service center located in south Fort Pierce at 3602 Oleander Drive. This new location offers complete car care and light duty truck service for the adjacent business district and surrounding residential neighborhoods. Fort Pierce residents and business owners now have three convenient locations to choose from: downtown, Orange Avenue West and Oleander Drive. Serving the Treasure Coast for more than 40 years, St. Lucie Battery & Tire continues to gain regional market share selling more than 8,000 tires per month, and performing more than 2,000 oil changes monthly. The company now operates retail, commercial, fleet & agricultural service centers in St Lucie, Okeechobee, Martin, Indian River and Palm Beach counties. Twelve of their locations provide full service maintenance and repair of passenger vehicles and light duty trucks by offering everything from tune-ups to oil changes, alignments to air conditioning service. Additionally, six of their locations provide commercial truck, fleet and RV service, as well as mammoth tractor tires to the agricultural industry. “We are excited at the opening of our new location. Many patrons have already expressed their gratitude in having a service center immediately available to them in their community,” said company president Doug Miller. In 2013 the company opened new locations in Jensen Beach, St. Lucie West, and West Palm Beach providing new job opportunities for skilled technicians and managers. The company employs more than 160 skilled workers, managers and administrative personnel combined, making them a reliable economic source for many along the Treasure Coast and South Florida.

Center teaches children vital coping skills, including thought stopping, which is refraining depressive and anxious thoughts. “Journaling is always a good coping skill,” Beale said. So is exercise. Talking to a supportive person also helps, Beale said. The center has a psychiatrist on staff, but using medication is a last resort, Beale said. “We try to use the least intrusive method first, which would be counseling,” Beale said.

Run.” “It’s difficult to express how grateful we are to Cassidy, and to the extraordinary artists that assembled around her, for the gift they have bestowed upon us in the form of ‘Salute,’” said David Walker, CEO of the Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes, a leading not-for-profit organization dedicated to rebuilding the lives of severely wounded veterans of the global War on Terror. “Not only is the song absolutely sensational, but its message of pride, heroism and patriotism is truly inspiring. I can’t wait for the world to hear ‘Salute’ for the first time on Memorial Day weekend; and from there, I believe the sky’s the limit for Cassidy and her promising career.” Cassidy Diana is no stranger to the bright lights. The 15-year-old singer/songwriter has already opened for such chart-topping artists as Darryl Worley, Tyler Farr and recorded with Trace Atkins touring band. “I’m really excited to perform ‘Salute’ on stage for the first time, and it’s really cool that the incredible musicians that lent their talents in the recording studio have agreed to join me,” she said. “It’s going to be a great show, featuring a lot of awesome tunes everyone will recognize, and it will all be in tribute to the brave men

and women that have sacrificed so much to defend our freedom.” The public is invited to the free, two-hour concert at the 325seat Crest Theater, which will also be attended by dozens of combat-wounded veterans from across Florida invited by the Coalition. The show will begin at 7 p.m. A special meet-and-greet reception with the artists will follow the performance. This event is free, courtesy of the Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes. General admission only. Donations to the Coalition will be accepted at the venue. The Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes, based in Leesburg, Va., has provided an invaluable lifeline to thousands of America’s wounded veterans since its establishment in 2004. The Coalition is distinguished from other veteran-focused organizations by its direct financial assistance to America’s wounded heroes. Its Emergency Financial Aid program has stopped foreclosure proceedings on veterans’ homes and kept their vehicles from being repossessed.

Lyric series offer nostalgia, Broadway Staff writer

skoppel@YourVoiceWeekly.com

STUART – The Lyric Theatre’s Broadway and Nostalgia series for 2014-2015 take you back to the Middle Ages and as far away as Mars and Venus. The Nostalgia Series begins Dec. 2 with Medieval Baebes. This group takes medieval music and poetry and performs it in everything from Latin, Middle English and French to Cornish and medieval Welsh. The group also takes texts of the period and sets them to original compositions, often featuring the group’s brand of sometimes dark humor. There are tales of unrequited love, the darker side of faerieland and alcohol-induced misadventures. If your taste in music runs several centuries later, Darlene Love presents “A Darlene Love Christmas: Love for the Holidays.” A member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Love, has become famous for her Christmas shows and her hit song, “Baby, Please Come Home.” She will make her Lyric debut Dec. 8. The Bronx Wanderers, Lyric favorites, return with “Merry

Bronxman” Dec. 15 and 16 for four shows. Yo’ Vinny and sons Vinny “The Kid” and Nicky “Stix” will rock the house with songs from their new album, “Merry Bronxman.” It’s a holiday show with a Bronx twist. Ya dig? Tito Puente Jr. presents “A Walk in my Father’s Shoes” Jan. 17. With a mission to keep his legendary father’s music alive, the performer has toured the country, taking the mambo and salsa rhythms of his father and giving them a modern edge. La Diva Tenors return to the Lyric Feb 14 for a performance of the best of contemporary pop, Broadway show tunes, a dash of opera and their blend of humor and wit. The three tenors and a soprano have worked with some of the biggest names in show business and a ticket to the show makes an excellent Valentine’s Day gift. March 2 brings “Stayin’ Alive: One Night with the Bee Gees.” Singers Mitch Seekins, Todd Sharman and Tony Mattini recreate the unique sound of a group that defined a musical style. If swing time is more your style, The Jive Aces come from the United Kingdom to make their Lyric debut. The “Britain’s Got

Earl Turner’s Box of 45s returns to the lyric after a successful show last year. Las Vegas’ “Male Vocalist of the Year” brings the best of the 70s rhythm and blues from the O’Jays, the Temptations and more. The Duprees close the Nostalgia Series March 22. It is more than 50 years since their song, “You Belong to Me,” became a national hit. They are known for taking love songs and giving them a romantic interpretation. The Broadway series begins Jan. 9-10 with the show, “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus Live!” The show is based on the famous book by John Gray and has played throughout Europe. It’s sexy, fast-paced and definitely for adults. The Tony-winning musical, “Next to Normal” comes to the

Bank supports YMCA Children’s Art Auction FOR YOUR VOICE NEWS & VIEWS

MARTIN COUNTY — Seacoast National Bank once again supported The YMCA’s Annual Children’s Art Auction at the Louis Dreyfus Citrus Branch YMCA in Indiantown.  This marks the tenth year the event has showcased framed artwork designed by the young children who attend the YMCA.  Seacoast National Bank has consistently supported the auction for seven years.   “This event is not so much about the art, it is about changing lives,” said Shawn Keil, executive director of the YMCA Indiantown and Okeechobee Branches. “Seacoast has been a wonderful supporter in helping our children attend summer camp, learn to swim, and participate in our Y Reads Program.”   “It is an inspiration to be involved with such a great community based program,” said Seacoast National Bank Financial Advisor Carl Newton, who attended the event along with Seacoast National Bank Assistant Vice President Jennifer Powers. “We purchased several pieces of art this year,
