PALM CITY — The Tobacco Free Partnership of Martin County, 945 S.W. Martin Downs Blvd., turns 5 this month. So, how’s that “reducing tobacco use” thing going? Pretty good, actually. Back in 2007, the year before the partnership started, about 15 percent of Martin County middle- and high-school youths had used a tobacco product at least once during the previous 30 days according to Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey. By 2012, the county partnership’s fourth year, about 7 percent

Sports agent puts family first Staff writer

skoppel@YourVoiceWeekly.com

PALM CITY — Sports agent Mark Rodgers has a “dining room rule” that helps him decide whether he wants to represent an athlete. When he meets a potential client, he asks himself if this is someone he’d invite to his home to sit down for a meal with his wife and five children. “It’s the perfect threshold,” he said. “If I would be embarrassed to have the player in my home, then how can I represent him zealously and without restraint?” Rodgers, a lawyer, has been an agent since 1987. He and his agency, Front Line Sports Management, represent athletes that include Chicago Cub Jeff Samardzija and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. He discussed his career and his family in email answers to questions. Rodgers graduated from Florida State University in 1981 and worked for three years as an English and journalism teacher and football and baseball coach a his alma mater, Christopher Columbus High School in Miami. He then returned to FSU, earning a

law degree. His legal practice involved sports representation. “My law practice had evolved to the point where I was doing less litigation and more sports representation,” he said. “I was at a fork in the road in my career: whether to be a full-time litigator or a fulltime sports attorney. That was the best easiest decision I ever made, and next to asking Karen Stephens to marry me, it was the best decision I ever made.” While Rodgers has represented athletes in sports that include golf, race car driving, basketball and football, most of his focus is on baseball. “Baseball is where I found my niche,” he said. “I love the diversity of the ages. I am able to be involved with players from high school all the way through the major leagues. For me, it offers the greatest challenges and the highest level of satisfaction.” Rodgers lets prospective clients know what they can expect from him, but he also tells them what he expects from them. “More than anything, I stress loyalty,” he said. “That is a twoway street. The relationship can be filled with stress and anxiety. At the end of the day, you want

to know that your client can be trusted, just as you want the client to believe wholeheartedly that he can trust you. “One of the most rewarding aspects of my role as an attorney and agent is dealing with players’ families. That may mean the parents of a high school or college player or the wife and children of a professional player. To me, it adds depth to our relationship. It also affords me the chance to learn more about the young man I am representing. You can learn a lot about a young man by the way he treats his mother and his wife.” While work is very important to Rodgers, it is not the most important thing in his life. Finding time to spend with his family is a priority. “God and family come first, so there is no conflict regarding time,” he said. “I love my job, but I love my family more. Our lives revolve around our children’s activities. Of course, they are not all children anymore. My oldest is 24 and is doing quite well trying to break into the movie industry in California. I have a son who will be a senior at Notre Dame and we have three children at home. Our greatest moments are times

PALM CITY — Custom Agronomics will never be a household name, but it is a company to watch. “We are a manufacturer of liquid fertilizers, bio-stimulants and specialty chemicals for the golf and agriculture industries,” co-owner Mike Williams said.

On Monday, Aug. 5, GrowFL named Customer Agronomics as one of its 50 Florida companies to watch, Getting on the annual list is a coveted prize among young companies. The Business Development Board of Martin County nominated Custom Agronomics. Tim Dougher, executive director, said that being named among GrowFL’s companies to watch helps companies in many business circles. He said it was impressive

that Martin had two finalists. The other was a Stuart company. “It’s definitely an honor for these two companies and puts them on the map for the future,” he said. Williams said Custom Agronomics isn’t constricted to creating a product line customers can take or leave. It has developed a way to customize its products to buyers’ needs. “We have a patent-pending technology that allows us to do some things no one else in the world can do,” he said. Custom Agronomics does those things with silica. “Silica has been used in agriculture for quite a while,” Williams said. “If you apply the right form to a plant, it can make the plant tougher. It’s always been very difficult to work with silica.” He went on to explain, “(Silica) has a lot of benefits, and people have always understood the benefits, but it’s very difficult to mix with other chemicals. What we’ve done — we’ve eliminated all that with the discovery of a new type of silica that can be mixed with virtually anything.” The possibilities are broad. One is sure to be quite popular with

most everyone. “The really cool thing is people can use less chemical pesticides,’ Williams said. “By using this product, you’re reducing the use of chemical pesticides.” Custom Agronomics does international sales from the Caribbean to Asia, but Florida remains its primary beat. The state has an abundance of two businesses that use its products — citrus and golf. Citrus more so than golf. “The average golf course uses our product on only three acres,” Williams said. “You look at a citrus grove; that’s 10,000 acres.” Florida is the second largest orange juice producer in the world. According to many reports, the state’s citrus industry generates about $9 billion in sales and creates about 75,000 jobs. While the industry is facing tremendous challenges with the continued and unrelenting spread of a plant disease commonly called citrus greening, it remains an economic powerhouse for the state. The bacterial infection is spread by the Asian citrus psyllid.

COMPANY from page 4 On the golf side, Custom Agronomics has a rare swing to play. “We don’t sell to the golf courses,” Williams said. “We sell to the people who sell to the golf courses.” That is distributors dealing with a market that was hit hard by the recent protracted recession and slow recovery. They’re hungry for any and every advantage they can get to create customer loyalty. Custom Agronomics can not only custom formulate products for distributors, but it can put them in bottles with their names. “We can go out to the distributers and offer them a full product line with their name on the labels,” Williams said. “They can build a brand in the marketplace. They can sell a product with their name on the package. We can even make literature pieces to support these products.” The formula has been a hit for the almost four-year-old company. It now has 10 workers and is tracking to do $3.5 million in sales this year. Dougher said the trend among economic-development circles in the last decade has been focusing on helping and attracting small-

er, local companies, rather than investing resources on bringing in bigger companies. “Every big company in the world has started with 10 people,” he said. Dougher said that companies such as Custom Agronomics diversify the county’s economic base, helping to insulate it from large swings in particular industries. Williams said Martin County was a natural place to grow the company. It has easy access to major transportation routes and is close to a large customer base. “That’s where we’re hedging our bets — on the Florida agricultural market,” Williams said. He noted that citrus is just one product the state grows that uses Custom Agronomics products. It also has large strawberry, tomato and pepper production. Custom Agronomics has also benefited the county by targeting its employment. “We’ve been heavily involved with the (Business Development Board) with programs to help the unemployed that need skill training,” Williams said. The company is online at customagronomics.com.

TOBACCO from page 1 had. The dramatic reduction follows, but seems well above, state and national trends. It also bodes well for the reduction and prevention of other drug and alcohol abuse and addiction, partnership members said. “Tobacco is often the gateway drug,” Darcy Flierl, director of prevention at Palm City’s notfor-profit Tykes & Teens, said. “People think it’s marijuana, but research shows it’s tobacco.” Flierl was a founding member of the county’s Tobacco Free Partnership. Valerie Graham is a member of the partnership’s advisory board. She said the Martin partnership primarily focuses on making middle- and high-school students more aware of and less susceptible to sophisticated marketing techniques tobacco companies use. “We don’t go to a class and say, ‘Smoking is bad,” Graham said. “They know that. We ask, ‘Why do you smoke even though you know it’s bad?’” It’s more than an academic question for teenagers. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that about 400,000 American youths under the age of 18 become permanent smokers every year. Flierl said many become addicted to tobacco while believing an insidious myth that needs to be exposed. “Kids who use think everyone is using,” she said. “That’s not true. We’re trying to change the social norms in Martin County.” Dr. Barry Hummel applied for the $140,000 state grant to form

the partnership along with Dr. Kirk Voelker. The two also run Quit Doc, a not-for-profit research foundation. It also helped start partnerships in several other area counties. Hummel is a pediatrician and Quit Doc’s program coordinator. He got interested in smoking prevention and cessation when training at the University of North Carolina, and has now largely dedicated his career to it. Hummel said he saw many young patients whose illnesses were almost certainly linked to their parents’ cigarette smoking. “What frustrated me was how little training we had on this issue,” he said. Then there were the children and youths he saw who’d taken up smoking. “Tobacco is a pediatric epidemic,” Hummel said. “About 85 percent of smokers start between 12 and 17.” That is before it’s legal for them to purchase tobacco products. Hummel said one reason for Martin’s success in reducing youth tobacco use is because adults have changed their attitudes about it. He said in the early 2000s many in drug-prevention programs didn’t take tobacco seriously enough. “It was an attitude of, ‘It’s just tobacco,’” he said. “We worked hard to get on task forces and boards.” He said anti-tobacco advocates have, in the last few years, largely convinced others of the seriousness of nicotine use, abuse and addiction. Frequent tobacco users die. So does everyone else. But, frequent tobacco users typically die at younger ages than others. The

Staff photo by Patrick McCallister Dr. Barry Hummel is co-founder of the Tobacco Free Partnership of Martin County. Hummel is a pediatrician who got involved with The Quit Doc, a tobacco-cessation not-for-profit founded by Dr. Kirk Voelker, to expand efforts to stem tobacco experimentation by children and youths. CDC reports that smokers typically die an average of 10 years earlier than their non-smoking peers. Many of those apparently premature deaths can be directly attributed to tobacco use, such as emphysema which is almost exclusively found among smokers. Other younger deaths are likely due in large part to illness complications related to tobacco use. Critics have long charged that tobacco companies aim sophisticated marketing at youths to counter the demographic reality that their customers typically die at younger ages. The critics refer to the new, young tobacco users as “replacement smokers.” Kim Waser, tobacco prevention specialist, said the Martin partnership is mostly working through programs such as Students Working Against Tobacco at area schools to help youths understand how marketing is stealthily aimed at turning them into these replacement smokers. “The kids we work with have opted to be in the SWAT program,” she said. “They are spreading their (anti-tobacco) message on campuses.” Hummel said Martin’s dramatic reduction in teen tobacco use appears to confirm the effectiveness of this approach. “Teenagers are good at being defiant,” he said. “I’m trying to gear some of that defiance at the tobacco industry.” In 2007, almost 10 percent of Florida’s middle- and high-school students had used a tobacco product at least once within the previous 30 days. Last year, that was down to 6.6 percent. Martin went from being well above average to just about average in that time. The CDC reports that although there have been steady declines in youth tobacco use since the middle 1990s, nationally about 18 percent of high-school students had smoked cigarettes within the previous 30 days in 2011.

The CDC estimates that daily about 4,000 youths smoke their first cigarettes. Slightly more than 1,000 a day go from occasional to daily use of tobacco. Youths also report smoking cigars and using smokeless tobacco products. The CDC says most are concurrent tobacco users, meaning those who smoke cigarettes are also smoking cigars, or using smokeless tobacco products. Over the last five years, many of Martin’s youths have become its adults. Back in 2010, around 20 percent of the county’s adults frequently used tobacco products, according to the Robert Woods Johnson Foundation’s County Health Rankings & Roadmap. Today that’s dropped to about 17 percent. In addition to its work with youth, Martin’s Tobacco Free Partnership is reaching out to area businesses to create more smoke-free workplaces and inform adults about low-cost and free smoking-cessation programs. That’s one of its components for reducing youth smoking, Graham said. “Children who see adults smoke are more likely to smoke themselves,” she said. The partnership is also talking with multi-unit housing facilities, such as apartments, about creating tobacco-free sections. The county’s Tobacco Free Partnership grants are from Florida Department of Health’s Bureau of Tobacco Free Florida. That’s funded by monies the state gained from tobacco companies in a 1990s Medicaid lawsuit settlement. So far the county partnership has received $838,000 in grants. The partnership has quarterly public meetings. The next will be on Tuesday, Aug. 20, at 3:30 p.m. That’ll be at the Martin Downs Boulevard office. The website is tfp-martin.org. The phone is (772) 600-7557.

Selling yachts a dream job “It’s a big investment. Where people used to have two boats, they now have one.”

Shelley Koppel Staff writer

skoppel@YourVoiceWeekly.com

STUART — Craig Clements of Palm City Yachts loves what he does. “It’s the best job I’ve ever had,” he said. “Selling boats is fun. You’re selling fun, you’re selling a dream.” Clements has been in Stuart since 1994. He came to work at Travis Boating Center, where he spent eight years. In 2001, he started Palm City Yachts. He said that the business has changed over the years. “We started selling new boats five years ago,” he said. “Nice used boats are hard to find and more people are buying new. Eighty percent of our business is new. It used to be the other way. The banks have loosened up a little and people are doing things closer to home, instead of going away. They can do it as a family.” Clements said that while gas prices are higher, it costs less to run a boat than it used to. “Boats are two to three times

more fuel efficient than they were 10 years ago,” he said. “They’re using less gas today. The price of gas has gone up, but they’re using less.” Palm City Yacht’s biggest seller is a Pioneer with a Suzuki or Yamaha four-stroke engine. “It’s a high-end boat, but they’ve never raised their prices,” Clements said. “It’s underpriced for the quality. It’s got Whaler quality, but not the Whaler price. A Boston Whaler could be $100,000. Ours, loaded up, is $60,000.

MARTIN COUNTY — Kevin Sharkey’s been around air conditioning since the 1970s. He’s got a tip. If air-conditioning bills feel way high, they probably are and there’re always reasons. Take power bills from the handful of months that Florida air conditioners aren’t really doing much, compare them to the ones when they’re working hard, and measure the differences. An air conditioner should chill the air, not a bank account. “Pretty much, if you’re running more than $100 a month per system, you need to look at it,” he said. Sharkey owns Sharkey Air in Stuart. Many also know him for helping found and continuing to work for the not-for-profit Molly’s House, a hospital hospitality house that’s also in Stuart. Sharkey lives in Palm City. “If the unit never shuts off, there’s a problem,” Sharkey said. “They should cycle two or three times an hour.” There are a number of things that can cause air conditioners to work too hard. Of course, the harder they work, the faster they age and break down. The first thing to investigate is the maintenance history. “Regular maintenance is key to reducing at least 50 to 60 percent of our service calls,” Sharkey said. “As units get older, you have to increase the maintenance schedule or you’ll have problems.” Sharkey said that in addition to regularly maintaining the system, reputable air-conditioning companies focus on educating customers about preserving and getting the most from their units. There’s a common problem he encounters that pushes up power bills and wears out air conditioners before their time. “Many times (units for) houses and other new construction are sized on the budget dollar, rather than what really should go into the home,” he said. If an air conditioner is demanding a king’s ransom to cool a house, or breaking down a lot, Sharkey said it’s time to size things up. Literally.

Kevin Sharkey “Have a good air conditioning contractor review the load calculations,” he said. And load calculations aren’t just a matter of square feet. Sharkey said various factors can affect how large an air-conditioning system should be. Additionally, he said even the best chosen and maintained air conditioners have a lifespan. “If your system is over 10 to 12 years old, you need to be seriously planning for replacement, rather than waiting for an emergency situation,” Sharkey said. Oh, and Sharkey said it’s fine to cut corners and save money — in some things, but not others. “(An air conditioner) is typically a 10-year purchase,” he said. “If you buy strictly on price, you will get what you paid for and no more.” That doesn’t mean to throw caution to the wind, however, when someone’s selling an air conditioner. “If you don’t have a long-term relationship with the company, you may want a second opinion,” Sharkey said. Sharkey Air has a few specials. For example, $29 will get a diagnostic for new residential customers, and $49 gets routine maintenance. Sharkey covers all of Martin and St. Lucie counties. While the name has only been around since 2011, Sharkey has been in business in the area since 1989. The phone is (772) 220-2487. The website is sharkeyair.com.

Team Holland opens for business FOR YOUR VOICE NEWS & VIEWS

5035

MARTIN COUNTY — Lisa Holland of Jensen Beach has opened a new business, Team Holland, an event management and fundraising consulting company. Holland recently sold her Stroller Strides franchise to Marie Landry Kavovit after seven successful years. In 2009, the Stuart Stroller Strides, was chosen as the Number One Luna Moms Club of the Year in 2009. The competition was open to 300 franchisees nationwide.

In April, Lisa Holland was named the winner of the Women of Distinction Award in the Business/ Professional category, presented by Soroptimist International of Stuart. Lisa says that launching Team Holland was the next natural step. “I have been lucky enough to discover something that I am truly passionate about — helping others get in better shape and improve their lives and in turn improving the community. Team Holland will allow me to work with

individuals and businesses in a variety of ways beyond fitness.” Lisa is already working with Martin County Healthy Start Coalition on their upcoming “Dancing with the Martin Stars” competition on Sept. 28 at the Lyric Theatre. As a past competitor, she raised $9,000 and Scott Berry, executive director of Healthy Start said, “Lisa was one of our Stars in our first year and she worked tirelessly to promote the event and raise funds. Her creative abilities and intellect definitely helped make the event better.”   “I will be working with nonprofits to help power their fundraising events by identifying their goals, researching resources and sponsorship opportunities and motivating team members to achieve their personal goals and objectives,” Lisa said.  Lisa will also offer corporate event management services for conferences and events. Her experience in site selection, logistics and event planning are key abilities that will benefit her clients. You can learn more about the company at their new website www.teamholland.info or by email at lisa@teamholland.info or by phone at (772) 631-6611. Lisa resides in Jensen Beach with her husband Frank Seymour

She also finds time to pursue her passion of running and recently completed the Baltimore Marathon. She enjoys watching their son play lacrosse and spending time with her family snowboarding and hiking in the mountains of Colorado.

RODGERS from page 3 he has served on the board of directors of the Martin County North Little League for 13 years. He is also still involved in coaching. This past summer Rodgers and his son, Andrew, coached the All-Star team for Martin County North Little League. It was a humbling experience for Rodgers as a dad. “He and I have come full-circle,” he said. “I coached his teams for 10 years. Now we are coaching together. He is the classic example of something I have always preached, never to be too proud to work with people smarter than you. I just hope he hasn’t figured out yet that he’s the smarter one.” Editor’s note: As of press time, Rodgers’ Little League team was scheduled to play in the semifinals on Wednesday. If they win their game Wednesday and again Friday, the team will advance to the Little League World Series beginning Aug. 15.

FLIGHT from page 13

The Perfect Home

Beach International Airport. Martin County Commissioner Doug Smith of Jensen Beach will be on the Sept. 7 flight as a guardian, a volunteer who spends the day with a veteran. This is his fifth Honor Flight as a guardian. “There’s the amazement of what these veterans go through over that 15-hour or so period of time,” he said. “It’s amazing to watch.” He added, “It gets ridiculously emotional. You have these men and women who a long time ago played a significant role in our nation’s history — to a person, they all say what they did was the norm; it’s what anyone would do.” Smith and other guardians don’t just volunteer to spend a day with the veterans. They pay $400 to watch after them. Money well spent, Smith said. He’s worked with at least a dozen charities, but Honor Flight has been one of his favorites. “Anyone who participates gets more than they can imagine out of it,” Smith said. “It’s really cool to see how well done it is. It is the best run volunteer organization I’ve ever been a part of.” The veterans pay … well, Honor Flight figures they paid for the trip with their service. Taryn Kryzda, Martin’s county administrator, went on an Honor Flight to accompany her father,

a World War II veteran. She said it was among the most emotional times she’s shared with him. She, of course, paid $400 to go. “I wanted to buy his ticket, too, and they said, ‘No way,’ she said. “We pay for the veterans all the way.” The Honor Flight Network is a national program with dozens of hubs. The National World War II Memorial was erected in 2004. The Honor Flights began, almost by accident, a year later. Honor Flight Southeast Florida started in 2009. The local hub also started Operation Homecoming at its April 27 flight this year. It organized hundreds to be at the airport after the April and May flights to greet the returning veterans. The hub is organizing the return greetings for its September and October flights, too. Martin County Commissioner John Haddox of Palm City said the county’s current veterans service office supervisor, Tony Reese, more or less got the hub started. Haddox was the office’s supervisor at the time. He retired and ran for the Commission last year. “We were at a county veterans service officers conference, and a guy from the (Florida) West Coast mentioned (Honor Flight),” Haddox said. “Tony asked me if he could organize a meeting about it. I told him that’s fine.”

FLIGHT from page 14 Haddox said he was busy with other veterans projects, and felt Reese was doing a great job with Honor Flight. He made a management decision to stay out of his way. “They took it — it took off like crazy,” Haddox said. “It was coordinated by the county’s veterans service office.” Among those who got involved early on was the Martin County Firefighters and Paramedics, International Association of Fire Fighters 2959 -- which organized and leads what’s turned out to be the largest fundraiser each year for the flights -- an annual fillthe-boot drive. Firefighters from Martin County and other agencies head out to parking lots to ask folks to fill firefighters’ boots with money. And fill they do. “Our average weekend is $55,000 a weekend, over three days,” John Davidson, president of the union said. “One thing about Honor Flight, 100 percent of what we get off the street goes to Honor Flight,” he added. Davidson is also the operations coordinator for the local hub. He makes certain there are planes, buses, food, emergency medical care and anything else the veterans will need ready for them. He said veterans pay nothing for the Honor Flight trips, making fundraising critical. After all, Honor Flight isn’t getting a few tickets for each flight; it rents a whole plane. Sometimes two. “The whole flight with buses, police escorts and food, it’s about $80,000 a trip,” Davidson said. “The planes about $55,000, $60,000.” The average trip sends 85 to 90 veterans to D.C., Roberts said. In addition to volunteer guardians paying their ways, and the boot drive, Southeast Florida

Honor Flight has other fundraisers through the year. But, Davidson said the hub still depends on people acting on their own. “If we didn’t have all the individual donations, we couldn’t do this,” he said. “We’re looking at $250,000, really more like $300,000, a year to do this.” Surrounding everything Honor Flight does is a sense of urgency. It can’t last forever, because World War II veterans won’t. According to an Associated Press estimate, the once 16.1 million World War II veterans are dying at a rate of more than 1,100 a day. Only about 2 million are living, according to a recent report by the Department of Veterans Affairs. No one has an exact daily mortality count, but the VA, AP and others have developed the same estimate by using long-form census data, VA data, and standard mortality tables. The VA estimates that America will have almost no World War II veterans by 2020. If the oldest lives as long as Frank Buckles — the last surviving American World War I serviceman — America will lose its last World War II veteran in 24 years, 2037. Buckles died in 2011 at age 110. The youngest World War II veterans were born in 1927 and are 86. In addition to Honor Flight Southeast Florida there’s another local hub, Space Coast Honor Flight. That volunteer group takes 25 veterans a trip. It has a flight scheduled for Aug. 24. That flight will be from the Orlando International Airport. It also has flights scheduled for Sept. 28 and Oct. 19. Honor Flight Southeast Florida is on the web at honorflightsefl. org. Space Coast Honor Flight is at spacecoasthonorflight.org.

Innovative breast reconstructive surgery now offered on Treasure Coast FOR YOUR VOICE NEWS & VIEWS

MARTIN COUNTY — Board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Avron Lipschitz and Dr. Matthew Goodwin are now offering the advanced DIEP flap reconstructive breast surgery on the Treasure Coast. The advanced surgical procedure was developed to reconstruct breast cancer patients after undergoing a mastectomy. With DIEP (deep inferior epigastric artery perforator) flap reconstructive surgery, only skin, fat, and blood vessels are removed from the belly, and no muscle is removed. The breast is reconstructed entirely with the patient’s own tissue. The risk of hernia is minimal, and no muscle loss enables the patient to retain their abdominal wall strength. DIEP flap surgery is a specialized skill and Dr. Avron Lipschitz, along with Dr. Matthew Goodwin work as a team to bring the surgery to patients on the Treasure Coast and Palm Beaches.  They are the only surgeons from Miami

Dr. Lipschitz was trained at John Hopkins and has the advanced technical expertise to perform the intricate surgery.  Fewer than 1 percent of plastic surgeons can perform the DIEP flap procedure.

New restaurant a welcome addition Shelley Koppel Staff writer

skoppel@YourVoiceWeekly.com

HOBE SOUND – The Hunter’s Grill opened in December 2013, but it was not the first restaurant for brothers Naval and Vijay Mehra. The first Hunter’s Grill opened in Potomac, Maryland, in 1978 and all of the restaurants they have owned have emphasized a “farm fresh to the table” concept using locally sourced, fresh ingredients. The new restaurant is an attractive place, simple and elegant, yet suited to casual dining. My companion and I were seated at a booth that had a small vase of fresh-cut flowers on it.

Austin, our server, brought us warm biscuits and beverages. While we opted for soft drinks that were refreshed often, the restaurant has a full liquor license and a collection of wines, liquor and beer. We ordered the soup of the day, lobster bisque, and it came in a large bowl. It was creamy and did not have an overpowering taste of lobster. It had a touch of sherry. The ample serving was $5. Mehra said that the bisque is typical of all his offerings, made from scratch from the best ingredients. Making the lobster bisque is a two-day process because the Hunter’s Grill uses lobster and not just a lobster base.

HUNTER’S from page 24 Entrees included mussels Provencal, fish and chips, shrimp and scallop linguine and Tuscan chicken pasta. There are also a variety of steaks, burgers and sandwiches. Dinner entrees range from $10.50- $22. For our main courses, I ordered honey-baked wild salmon served with a tomato relish, broccoli and potatoes. When food is fresh, you notice it first in its appearance. The salmon was not overcooked and just the right shade of pink. The broccoli was steamed and again, not overdone, and the potatoes were tasty. My companion was a little more adventurous, choosing sea bass with a morel mushroom risotto, French green beans and a beurre blanc sauce. It was presented in an oval bowl with sauce drizzled over it and made quite an appearance. My friend said it was excellent. Be prepared to leave room for dessert. Austin came out with a platter of different selections that included chocolate mocha cake, key lime pie, an apple cobbler cheesecake with walnuts, molten lava cake, and crème brulee. Our host recommended the apple cobbler cheesecake and it was swoon-worthy. There was a nice contrast between the textures of the cheesecake, cobbler and nuts. The desserts are priced from $5$6.50.
