Missing note raises questions
Did commission violate Sunshine Laws?
MARTIN COUNTY — Martin County students are staying ahead of the curve. The state’s Department of Education released the last of its 2013 Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test — what’s now called FCAT 2.0 — results on June 7. Martin scored better than the state average in all courses and grades. Martin County Schools’ reading scores were among the best in the state. “It’s typical Martin County fashion that our students performed as well as they did,” said Martin County School Board member Michael DiTerlizzi, Palm City. The state recently released the reading results for

MARTIN COUNTY — It looked like a possible violation of open record and open meeting requirements, called “Sunshine Laws.” A missing handwritten note raised questions about whether the Martin County Commission accidently violated those rules and the Constitution’s prohibition against government showing religious preferences, what’s known

NOTE from page 1 as the “Establishment Clause.” In May the commission quietly declined to issue a proclamation for the Humanists of the Treasure Coast connected to World Humanist Day, June 21. At the center of the denial was that missing note which ostensibly influenced at least one commissioner’s decision on whether to support the proclamation. County and city governments issue proclamations at almost every meeting. They use the proclamations to recognize and promote everything from National Child Abuse Prevention Month to the accomplishments of local students. A proclamation usually gets little fanfare — the recipients get a reading of it at a meeting, followed by a bit of applause, handshakes, and a photo with smiling commissioners or council members. But proclamations sometimes help raise the awareness of local issues, programs and charities. Martin proclamations have inspired Your Voice stories, such as a recent one about the county’s Drug Court. The new county attorney, Michael Durham, said after speaking to numerous people he’s confident that there were no violations of Sunshine Laws, or promotion of religion over secularism. Rather, he said, the missing note was in the center of
a comedy of errors that exposed problems with how the commission does one of its usually most innocuous jobs — issuing proclamations. “We will be taking a look at this and seeing what changes need to be made,” he said in a telephone interview. Joe Beck, founder and president of the Stuart-based humanist organization, said he understands errors leading to unintended consequences, but would still like that proclamation. “They say there was a mistake, and I say let’s accept that,” he said. “Let’s work together to get a Humanist Recognition Week.” He said that there are other events and dates the commission could use to proclaim a local Humanist Recognition Week. In Beck’s view, it’s a matter of fairness. For the last 12 years, the commission has proclaimed Bible Reading Week for local churches in connection with the annual Bible Reading Marathon at Stuart’s Memorial Park. Last year, the proclamation came with the statement, “Whereas, the Bible has been the foundation for the many blessings from God that we have enjoyed in the United States …” Chairwoman Sarah Heard, Port Salerno, speaking for the commission, declined to issue the requested proclamation for the
local humanist group. David Graham, Martin’s director of administration, told Beck the news. “It is with regret that I inform you that there is a lack of support among the County Commission to support your proclamation request and I have been instructed by the Chairman to withdraw the item from the agenda,” Graham wrote in an email to Beck. “I received no specific reason why the request was denied; but that is the prerogative of the Commissioners.” Turned out that the reason had a lot to do with the handwritten note no one at the county could find by press time. Commissioner John Haddox, Palm City, said he would have signed the proclamation — he’s signed all presented to him since taking office in November. But this one came with the now missing note, which gave him pause. Haddox, who saw the note weeks before he gave a comment, recalled thinking it was written by fellow commissioner, Ed Fielding, Stuart. “The proclamation came across my desk with a note from (a commissioner),” he said in a phone interview. “It was basically saying, ‘I don’t support this resolution.’ I returned (the proclamation) and said, ‘Let this thing run its course.’” He continued, “Before I put my signature on it, I gave it to my
aide and said, ‘Bring it to me last.’ I never saw it again.” Sam Morley, general council of the Florida Press Association, said the missing note raises questions about the commission’s adherence to Sunshine Laws. “In this case the sticky note reflected the views of a board member on an issue pending before the board,” he said in an emailed response to queries. “It was circulated to other board members and another board member acted on the note and indicated his disapproval. The note was part of the deliberations that led to the official action of the board and using the note to avoid deliberating the issue publicly seems to be a violation of the Sunshine Law.” Barbara Petersen, president of the First Amendment Foundation, said in an email that with or without the missing note, passing proclamations for signatures before meetings seemed to steer the commission dangerously close to a legal cliff. “However, the fact that commissioners were to sign the proclamation as a signal of support — and the fact that the proclamation wasn’t put on the agenda due to the lack of sufficient signatures — could be a violation of law,” she wrote. “On page 17 of the ‘2013 Government in the Sunshine Manual’: “Thus,

PALM CITY — “Lo, children are a heritage of HaShem; the fruit of the womb is a reward.” So reads the Jewish Publication Society’s 127th chapter of the Tehilim. Most know that collection of writings as the Psalms. On Monday, June 24, Palm City’s Chabad Jewish Center of Martin & St. Lucie Counties will launch its 15th Camp Gan Israel at the Pine School, Stuart.

They don’t have a good time — they have a super time.” Uminer said the camp is one of the biggest annual functions of Chabad. “The word ‘gan’ is Hebrew and it means ‘garden,’” he said. Among camp activities are zumba, karate, art, music, soccer and softball. “It’s very high in levels of activ-

He said while the camp is inclusive, it has a cultural mission for Martin and St. Lucie counties. “There’s no Jewish school, so we primarily focus on Jewish children,” Uminer said. The center is diverse in its offerings. “The Chabad Jewish Center
doesn’t have membership per se,” the rabbi said. “We’re there to serve every Jew. The people that come are from all walks of life.” The children, he said, talk about the camp when it’s not around. “We get a lot of return customers,” he said. “Kids talk about it all year and can’t wait to come back. We put a lot into this. It’s a lot of planning, care and investment. The camp cost us more than we take out of it, and we have scholarships.” The camp is $310 a session for

Emailed response from county attorney Thank you for giving me some time to look into this matter and gather some facts. I know it is a little late, but I wanted the information to be correct, and this took so more time. I will just bullet point the information, you have the context based upon our discussions. As to the sunshine matter involving the sticky note. After talking to several staff members, it is clear that a staff member wrote the note and put it on a folder in order to communicate with another staff member regarding the proclamation. The folder with the proclamation was then provided to that staff member who was not available to receive it and to remove the
NOTE from page 3 a procedure whereby a board takes official action by circulating a memorandum for each board member to sign whether the board member approves or disapproves of a particular issue, violates the Sunshine Law.’” She added, “This would seem to be the case here, correct? The county employee told the group that the commission ‘declined to support the proposed proclamation’ — in other words, the commission took action by circulating the proposed proclamation among themselves. Based on the Blair opinion, this would appear to be violation of the Sunshine Law.” Which goes to the heart of why Heard declined to put the pro-
sticky note. The folder with the sticky was then provided to another Commissioner. As a result there was the appearance that a Commissioner was communicating with another Commissioner through a sticky note about a proclamation. However, in fact, the communication was between staff members not Commissioners. The Commissioner in receipt of the folder with the sticky note inadvertently got the message. Additionally, no Commissioner saw anyone draft the note. Thus based upon the facts there is no impression of a sunshine violation. As to the public record matter regarding the sticky note. The sticky note would be a public
posed proclamation on the June 4 agenda. “It came to my attention, two commissioners refused to sign it,” she said in a telephone interview. “It was my decision that lackluster approval for a proclamation was worse than none. I decided we wouldn’t issue a proclamation.” That note, Durham said after interviewing numerous people, was written by a county employee, not a commissioner as Haddox recalled, for other county employees, not commissioners. Therefore, he said, the action is well clear of violating Sunshine Laws. He said county employees who remember seeing it have verified the note indicated that Fielding wouldn’t sign the proclamation. Durham also said that Fielding

record as it was intended to communicate information from one staff member to another staff member about public business. In this context the sticky note would be considered a transitory public record because it primarily communicated information which was of short-term value based upon the content and purpose of the sticky note. Therefore, the sticky note should be maintained as a record until the information becomes obsolete, is superseded or its administrative value is lost. Once the sticky note was passed from one staff member to the other, the communication value become obsolete or otherwise its communication value was lost.
told him his refusal to sign the proclamation was for reasons apart from religious sentiments. Fielding is unusual among Martin’s commissioners in that he sometimes won’t sign proclamations. Heard said that in her 10 years on the commission, she’s never seen it decline a proclamation presented in time to make an appropriate meeting. Graham said he’s never seen it happen in 12 years. “It’s never happened before with me,” he said. “I can’t speak to (what may have happened) before my time.” However innocuous and perfunctory, proclamations are official acts that go on commission agendas and require votes. Under Sunshine Laws, elected officials can’t discuss with each other items that will be on meeting agendas, although one-way communications about them are generally allowed. For example, a commissioner could send a memorandum to others about a fact-finding tour he or she took of a property in the center of a rezoning question. Those communications are generally available for public examination. Durham, who started as the county attorney in April, said that current proclamation procedures have been around for awhile, but do seem to steer uncomfortably close to the appearance of Sunshine violations. “By passing them among themselves and signing them, they’re telling each other how they’ll likely vote,” he said in the telephone interview. And there’s the question about whether the commission accidently violated the First Amendment’s prohibition against showing religious preferences by supporting Bible Reading Week,
Therefore the sticky note was disposed of accordingly. Your inquiry has raised a procedural matter involving proclamations, specifically, Commissioners reviewing a proclamation, signing a proclamation, then transmitting a proclamation through staff to another Commissioner. I understand the reason for this practice is so that when a proclamation is presented to the receiving entity during a Board meeting it has all the necessary signatures. The second Commissioner and subsequent Commissioners do see the signatures of the previous Commissioners and this
See RESPONSE page 12 but not Humanist Recognition Week. Baylor Johnson, media relations manager for the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida, said the proclamation refusal seemed to have taken the commission possibly close to that edge. “Just with the facts you’ve given me, it certainly raises concerns that they’re making determinations about promoting certain viewpoints over others, which is problematic,” he said in a telephone interview. “It would depend on whether or not they were allowing other religious viewpoints to be treated the same. The reason we have the Establishment Clause is the idea of religious liberty.” But while humanism might have theological implications, it isn’t a religion. Durham said Fielding was aware of that fact when he declined to sign the proclamation. In a previous interview, Beck said that most secular humanists are either agnostic or atheist, but not always. “Humanism is basically a rational, compassionate, human-centered way of life,” Beck said. “Humanists strive to live fulfilling lives that aspire to help humanity without reference to a god, supernatural creatures, or religion.” However, Beck said the commission’s willingness to proclaim Bible Reading Week compels it to recognize humanists’ requests. “It would be wiser for cities and counties not to be involved in Bible Reading Week, or National Prayer Day, but since they’re involved the Constitution requires they give equal treatment to all others,” he said. Haddox, who is a moderate Catholic, said the incident makes

NOTE from page 6 him wonder whether the commission should have a policy against making proclamations for religious organizations and events at all. “Does the Martin County Board of Commissioners want to get into the business of proclamations of all religions, or uphold separation of church and state?” he said. He wondered aloud if the commission would have supported a World Catholic Day, or World Muslim Day. Heard said she worries about limiting proclamations on religious criteria. “That’s a slippery slope,” she said. “I think we represent all people and there is a clear separation of church and state.” Your Voice asked if she believes the commission represented area humanists in recent events with the requested proclamation. “I concur, we didn’t,” she said. In an email, Durham said the commission will likely discuss

To achieve this, trained youth development professionals offer children ages 6 to 18 a very low-cost, comprehensive, and high-yield curriculum after school and during the summers. In the most recent school year, we served 1,716 registered club members. We charge just $35 a year and estimate that the total cost per Club Member is more than $1,800 to the organization.

Neither did commissioners Anne Scott, Hobe Sound, or Doug Smith, Jensen Beach. The November 14 Bible Reading Week proclamation is at the county’s website, martin.fl.us.

But that’s not the case with competitive swimmers, who must constantly watch what they eat and drink, particularly in the days and hours preceding their races. While you may not ever have to concern yourself with your 400-meter individual medley “splits,” you can learn a lot from swimmers’ consumption patterns — particularly if you’re an investor. For starters, to sustain energy and stamina for a relatively long period of time, competitive swimmers need to eat easyto-digest carbohydrates such as whole wheat, whole grains, apples and bananas. When you invest, you want to build a portfolio that is capable of “going the distance.” Consequently, you need investments that provide
Jamie Chapogas Financial Focus carbohydrate-type benefits — in other words, investments with the potential to fuel a long-term investment strategy. Such a strategy usually involves owning a mix of high-quality stocks, bonds, government securities and certificates of deposit. By owning these vehicles, in proportions ap-
propriate for your risk tolerance and time horizon, you can help yourself make progress toward your financial goals — and lessen the risk of running out of energy “mid-stream.” Of course, competitive swimmers have to be diligent not just in what they do eat, but also in what they don’t. That’s why they avoid sweets, such as sodas and desserts, when it’s close to race time. These items do not provide lasting energy — in fact, they actually sap energy once the sugar wears off. As an investor, you, too, need to avoid the temptation of “sweets” in the form of high-yield or “hot” investment vehicles. You may find some of these investments to be alluring, but you will need to carefully weigh the extra risks involved. For many people, these types of investments may not provide the long-term stability needed to help maintain a healthy, productive investment portfolio. While what swimmers eat, or don’t eat, is important to them, their drinking habits are also cru-

students in grades 4 to 10, math for those in grades 4 to 8, science for those in grades 5 and 8, along with end-of-course assessments for algebra 1, geometry, biology 1 and U.S. History. Statewide, students made gains in all areas, particularly in biology and geometry. Martin’s ninth- and 10th-graders had the third-highest reading scores in the state for their respective groups. The seventh-graders were fifth-highest and eighth-graders sixth in reading. Additionally, all of the county’s middle-school students who took the Algebra I end-of-course assessment passed. Statewide, 64 percent of students taking the algebra 1 assessment for the first time scored achievement level 3 or higher. In other words, passed the test. That’s up from 58 percent last year. Ninety-nine percent of the district’s middle-school students who took the geometry end-ofcourse exam passed, too. Statewide, 64 percent of students taking the geometry exam for the first time passed, an 8 percent increase over last year. In biology, the school district ranked seventh. There are 67 counties and school districts in the state. Tracey Miller, executive director of instructional services, said Martin has implemented several programs to help students with reading, which increases performance in all subjects. “Any time you put an emphasis on something, you’re going to improve,” she said. Miller said Martin also uses a lot of progress monitoring, repeatedly giving students the same exams throughout courses. If students don’t improve on exams as their classes cover the subject, teachers know early on to seek remedies. Miller compared it to regularly stepping on a weight scale to measure the effects of food and exercise habits.
Tracey Miller, executive director of instructional services, said Martin has implemented several programs to help students with reading, which increases performance in all subjects. “Any time you put an emphasis on something, you’re going to improve,” she said. “Getting on the scale doesn’t make you lose weight,” she said. “You have to use that information.” DiTerlizzi — whose district includes Palm City, Citrus Grove and Bessey Creek elementary schools, along with Hidden Oaks Middle — said he believes a number of things contributed to Martin’s good performance in the state’s evaluation tests. He said parent volunteerism is an important one. DiTerlizzi said they gave many of the 165,000 volunteer hours at Martin’s schools this school year. “That all goes to tell you the mindset of our community,” he said. “Parent involvement in their child’s education is paramount.” The state is phasing out the FCAT as it’s implementing the Common Core standards and increasing emphasis on end-ofcourse assessment exams. In the 2014-2015 school year, the test that was started in 1998 will be almost completely replaced by one meeting standards for the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers. Some students will still have the science portion of the FCAT. The FCAT replaced the State Student Assessment Test and High School Competency Test. The FCAT became an important component in the state’s formula for grading districts. The department of education has given Martin an A rating for more than a decade. Martin has about 19,000 students in 22 schools, including two charter schools.

When it comes to the number of retirement accounts you have, the saying “more is better” is not necessarily true. In fact, if you hold multiple accounts with various brokers, it can be difficult to keep track of your investments and to see if you’re properly diversified.* At the very least, multiple accounts usually mean multiple fees.

Stuart/Martin County Chamber of Commerce president’s report

We’re pleased to announce our chamber’s decision to become a “Chamber for Good” by adopting the Chamber for Good webbased GIVE LOCAL system. In order for this to be a successful program, we need help from the entire community. Chamber for Good is a clearinghouse for all LOCAL philanthropic activity. The system connects local donors of time, items and money with local charities and causes in need. Residents will not only be able to browse local charity needs where they can view their needs and profiles, but will also be able to make volunteer or item offers. All locally based 501c3 charities will have a presence on the Chamber for Good website regardless of whether or not they happen to be members of our chamber of commerce. Our goal with “Chamber for Good” is to increase the visibility of all local charities and to create a dynamic climate of local giving to create a true sense of community. While the chamber will be placing a “Give Local” link on

cial. The competitive environment — warm pool water, warm air temperatures and high humidity — can quickly lead to dehydration, so swimmers need to drink sizable amounts of water and sports drinks before and during practice. And you, as an investor, need your own type of liquidity, for at least two reasons. First, you need enough cash or cash equivalents to take advantage of new investment opportunities as they arise; without the ability to add new investments, your portfolio could start to “dehydrate.” Second, you need enough liquid investments — specifically, low-risk vehicles that offer preservation of principal — to create an emergency fund, ideally con-

our website, charities will also be placing the “Give Local “link on their websites. The key to ensuring high visibility for the Give Local program is the willingness of local media partners to regularly promote the Give Local, Chamber for Good movement and of course, the generosity of the community. Additional information will be forthcoming in the very near future. Joseph Catrambone is CEO of the Stuart/Martin County Chamber of Commerce. taining six to 12 months’ worth of living expenses. Without such a fund, you may be forced to dip into long-term investments to pay for unexpected costs, such as a major car repair, a new furnace or a large bill from the dentist. So the next time you see competitive swimmers churning through their lanes, give a thought as to the type of diet that is helping propel them along — and think of the similarities to the type of “fueling” you’ll need to keep your investment strategy moving forward.

MARTIN COUNTY — In May, the Tobacco Free Partnership of Martin County presented its annual Tobacco Prevention Awards to local community leaders at the organization’s quarterly meeting. The Tobacco Prevention Awards are presented each year to groups or individuals who have made an exceptional contribution towards one of the goals of the Tobacco Free Partnership. The 2013 Community Champion Award was shared by Stuart City Commissioner Kelli Glass Leighton and Stuart Mayor Eula Clarke for their work on a resolution encouraging retailers to stop the sale of flavored tobacco products that target children and teenagers. The Resolution was adopted unanimously by the Stuart City Commission in February. Michele Waddill, the Students Working Against Tobacco advisor from Murray Middle School, was presented with the SWAT Advisor of the Year Award, and Megan Koenig, the SWAT president from

Mitch Kloorfain/chief photographer Be CrossFit member Carley Minkler of Palm City was motivated by the cause to finish her reps at Crossfit Tuckpoint in St. Lucie West during a benefit to raise funds to help cover burial costs for 4-year-old Naxhielly Rivera of Port St. Lucie. Rivera died unexpectedly in her mother’s arms Wednesday, June 5. Several area gyms came together for the benefit raising $2,550 to assist the family.
RESPONSE from page 6 is a matter that will come before them for a vote. Naturally, the vast majority of proclamations are innocuous with no debate. However, the Commissioners that I have talked with all acknowledge it is a procedure that has occurred for years, however in light of you bringing this forward, they want to address it and I understand they intend to do so in short order. This appears to be a matter where process is driving substance….. By signing a proclamation, they are not necessarily approving it and clearly are not voting on it, however, it would appear to provide a communica-
tion in and of itself. As to the proclamation not moving forward, it appears, to some degree to be a procedural matter that resulted in this discussion. It would appear the Humanists should reach out to individual commissioners and have conversations directly regarding the matter. Often more dialogue is better than less. It is apparent that each Commissioner recognizes that the federal and state establishment clauses respectively were and are intended to protect against government sponsorship, financial support, or active involvement of government in religious activity.

Seacoast National Bank sponsoring pet food drive for the Council on Aging of Martin County FOR YOUR VOICE NEWS & VIEWS
MARTIN COUNTY —Seacoast National Bank has partnered with the Council on Aging of Martin County at the Kane Center to collect donations of pet food. All Martin County Seacoast branches are participating throughout the summer until Aug. 30. Pet food donations will be distributed to homebound seniors who receive Meals on Wheels through the Council on Aging.
“For many seniors, their pets are their only family and their beloved daily companions,” said Cathy Knowles, manager of Meal Services for the Council on Aging at the Kane Center. “Those who are on limited incomes or those who have no transportation often struggle to buy pet food. We want to ensure that the seniors and their pets receive proper nutrition.” Martin County branches of Seacoast National Bank have donation boxes in the lobby
available to the public. All types of cat and dog food are being accepted. Seacoast National Bank is the operating arm of Seacoast Banking Corporation of Florida (NASDAQ: SBCF). With more than $2 billion in assets and 34 branches from Orlando to Palm Beach Gardens and south central Florida, it is one of the largest community banks headquartered in Florida.

Palm City Grill, a must-try culinary experience Nicole Rodriguez Staff writer
PALM CITY — For 19 years, Palm City Grill has been serving oneof-a-kind dishes with a made-forTV, family-like atmosphere rarely found in real life. Manager Gail Rhine, who’s been with the establishment since its beginning, said she makes it a point to personally welcome new guests and regulars alike.
“It brings a homeyness to the restaurant experience. We don’t like it to be stark,” Rhine said. “During our training one of the owners said he’d like to make this like ‘Cheers,’” and I think we do strive to make that happen.” It’s clear that mission was accomplished and is made evident by witnessing the staff’s interaction with guests. Rhine credits the restaurant’s general manager

Steven Beers and the establishment’s five owners with instilling its staff of 50 with stellar customer service values. The five also own and run Palm City Grill in St. Lucie West, Prawnbroker Grill, Shrimpers and the Black Marlin, as well as five additional restaurants on Florida’s west coast. “We don’t view our clientele as customers, they’re extended family members that just come home to visit, that’s all,” Rhine said. In fact, regulars receive birthday and anniversary cards with discount coupons. And anyone who’d like to keep up with seasonal appetizers and entrees are included on an emailing list, so they can drop by to dine on their favorite dish. One of those menu rarities customers are alerted to is the mouth-watering Palm City Chowder, which was created right in the back kitchen. The soup is made with shrimp, cream, a splash of sherry and imitation crab meat. Rhine describes it as a seafood bisque with mushroom and dill. A must-try starter is the Palm City Escargot baked in mushroom caps with artichoke heart, roasted red pepper, brandy, garlic butter and mozzarella cheese. The delicacy doesn’t get much better than the Palm City way. One of the restaurant’s most popular entrees is the Horseradish Crusted Grouper. One bite and it’s obvious why. The dish comes with a hearty serving of pan-seared grouper with horseradish, panko crumbs, lemon, orange and lime zest, then topped with vanilla rum butter and flash-fried leeks. The fruity zest makes the dish a great summer meal. The locally caught grouper comes straight from New England Fish Market in Jensen Beach, Rhine said. Other fish on the menu always comes from a 100-mile radius, Rhine said. A recommended side with the grouper is the Tropical Sweet Potato made with whipped sweet potatoes, vanilla, butter, brown
sugar and pecans. Another great entree is the Scallops Beurre Blanc made with pan-seared diver scallops, which are bigger in size than sea scallops. The scallops are served on sautéed spinach, capers, a lemon buerre blanc sauce and diced tomatoes. The colorful dish is also a visual treat. The restaurant also offers an array of craft beers and an exotic wine list. Two years ago, Palm City Grill began hosting a wine tasting once a month during the seasonal months of October through March. Guests are treated to a five-course dining experience paired with different, international and domestic wines for $60$75 per person, service included, said beverage program director, Jason Daniels. Daniels said he uses his Ph.D. in history to educate guests about the process of growing and producing wine. Daniels also teaches guests about the geographic regions each wine originates from. The successful program was launched to broaden the palettes of patrons. The restaurant served strictly California wine before the program was introduced, Daniels said. “It was both in part to broaden our perspective on wine and the staff’s perspective on wine and also to kind of broaden our clientele’s perspective,” Daniels said. Palm City Grill now offers red and white wines from regions including Northern Italy and Australia to South Africa and New Zealand.

Arts leagues join forces for summer STUART — Creating art can be a solitary pursuit. One of the great joys for artists is to know that others have enjoyed their work. For the last few years, several arts organizations in Martin County, including the Palm City Art Associates, Hobe Sound Fine Arts League, Art Associates of Martin County and the Jensen Beach Art League, have joined forces to produce a juried exhibition of the best works of their members. The show, entitled “Color Me Creative,” will be on display at the Court House Cultural Center in Stuart from June 14-Aug. 16. The summer show was conceived three years ago when Sharon Ferina of the Art Associates of Martin County, Nancy Steinberg of the Palm City Arts Associates and Carol Kepp of the Hobe Sound Fine Arts League met and decided to coordinate their efforts. They met with the Arts Council of Martin County and became members of the Gallery Committee. A summer art show was planned with members of the three groups; the Jensen Beach Art league joined in the following
Photo courtesy of Jane Blatt ‘Color Me Creative’ is the theme of the summer art juried art exhibition, featuring works by members of the Palm City Art Associates, Hobe Sound Fine Arts League, Art Associates of Martin County and the Jensen Beach Art League. The show runs from June 14-Aug. 16 at the Court House Cultural Center in Stuart. Blatt, who does publicity for the Palm City group, belongs to each of the member organizations. She said that they provide a valuable service for artists. “Each has a demonstration at their monthly meeting,” she said. “It’s a great learning experience and the money goes to scholar-
ships. We were able to award four instead of three this year because of (money collected) from the demonstrations.” “Color Me creative,” a juried exhibition of works by artists from

year. Artists from member organizations may enter two original works in any medium for consideration by the three judges. They are Nancy Dillen, art professor emeritus at Brevard Community College, Joel Johnson, whose work is on display at the Vero Beach Museum of Art, and Ozzie Monzon, past deputy director of the Elliott Museum. The judges will determine which works will appear in the exhibition. Most of the works displayed will be available for purchase during the show. For Sharon Ferina, the show is a wonderful opportunity for Martin County artists. “We love it,” she said. “It gives local artists a chance to show in this prestigious spot. It’s a colorful summer show and everybody gets excited. There are not a lot of places to hang your art locally. We’ve lost galleries. They will feature an artist, but the average artist won’t have a chance. There are volunteer docents to explain the work. It’s a wonderful opportunity and I’m glad we’ve been able to carry it forward.” While the leagues have joined together for this show, each has individual members who enjoy getting together to discuss art and learn from others.
