Heavy flow on the boulevard

Surf soccer player Fabricio Scaccia steals the ball from his opponent during an exhibition game between the newly formed South Florida Surf PDL soccer team and the Treasure Coast Galleons. The game benefitted the Kyle Conrad Foundation and was played Sunday, Jan. 24 at South County Stadium in St. Lucie West.

ST. LUCIE WEST — It’s an unpopular drive, because the lights take forever. Maybe not forever, but at times if feels that way. Readers will know it well: St. Lucie West Boulevard. At the last regular meeting of the Port St. Lucie City Council, a public commenter said what many do: “The timing (of traffic lights) is essentially set for rush hour, and it’s kept that way all day.” Mayor Greg Oravec told him the city is working on that. There are about 35,000 trips a day on the road between Cashmere Boulevard and Interstate 95, according to the 2015 Traffic Counts and Level of Service Report by the St. Lucie County Transportation Planning Organization. In other words, there are a lot of folks who’d like to know when those lights won’t take forever. By the way, for comparison, Crosstown between the same two roads gets less than half of the trips SLW Boulevard does, close to 15,000. That drops off after California Boulevard heading east to 12,300. Nick Dibenedetto, project coordinator, explained in an emailed response to queries that it’s not just people’s imaginations that they’re sitting for nothing at red lights, besides avoiding tickets, when there’s no cross traffic. “(St. Lucie West Boulevard) runs

ST. LUCIE COUNTY — On Jan. 28, at a press conference at the St. Lucie Civic Center, the South Florida Surf Soccer Club was publicly awarded franchise status in the Premier Development League (PDL), a fourth-tier soccer organization of 67 North American teams that readies players for the major league. The process began last year when Global Sports Group, a corporate sports interest in Lake Worth reached out to Eric Arbuzow and asked him to manage a team “somewhere between West

Palm Beach and Vero.” In October, the newly founded SFSSC began talking with PDL about official induction, and this past November, PDL entered the club in its books. Port St. Lucie was suggested as an ideal location for the team by SFSSC Senior Sports Advisor Tom Power and heartily seconded by Arbuzow, who says that there is a lot of support and demand for a high quality team in the Treasure Coast. Arbuzow, a Treasure Coast local who was formerly assistant coach of the Tampa Bay Rowdies, said he was excited to return home. The inclusion marks a major

cultural event for St. Lucie, said Mayor Gregory Oravec, who spoke at the conference. “Putting the PDL in PSL is a quality first step,” said the mayor in an interview. “This will be a great way to support the extended community, and we can provide a real fan-base. The team will serve as a passion and inspiration for young people, and our goal is to leverage soccer as a major section of our local economy.” According to the mayor, there are more than 3,500 youth soccer players in Port St. Lucie, 500 of whom are in high school.

TRADITION — Lindsay Ghete has always loved animals, but when her mother, Katherine, a former rider, suggested they go feed the horses, Lindsay held back. At 5, she was a bit intimidated by the big animals. A year later, she and her mother came back with carrots for the horse and Lindsay decided she wanted to try riding. “She got on the horse and she was a natural,” Katherine Ghete said. “She had a good seat and the instructor said, ‘Wow, this girl can ride.’” Today, Lindsay, 9, has won many ribbons and competes against riders much older than she. The Tradition resident, 3rd grader at St. Joseph Catholic School in Stuart, recently competed in a show at the Jupiter Horsemen’s Association, where, competing against riders as old as 17, she came home with eight ribbons, including championships in divisions for those 10 and younger and those 17 and younger. Lindsay does much of her riding at Sunny Time Stables in Palm

EQUESTRIAN from page A3 dedication and responsibility. It’s amazing. You don’t ride a horse and go home. She gets the horse groomed, lugs water, and after her ride, bathes the horse and puts away the tack. She brushes other horses, spends a lot of time and works hard at it.” Lindsay is an A student and she does have other interests. “She’s outdoorsy,” Katherine Ghete said, “She likes to ride her bike and skateboard. She’s not one to sit in the house, watching TV. She likes band and plays the recorder.” Still, horses remain Lindsay’s first love and her parents are pleased to encourage it. Dad Romeo Ghete, a professional

photographer, is able to document his daughter’s success and progress. Both parents try to make new opportunities available to her. “The more trainers and opportunities she has, the better she’ll become,” Katherine Ghete said. “We call her a horse whisperer. As a parent, the bond she has takes your breath away. She’d bring it home and put it on the couch if she could.” Lindsay is hoping to compete in bigger competitions and wants to continue to learn. “Once she goes through the gates, she is so focused,” Katherine Ghete said. “Whatever you tell her to do, she processes every move. She’s careful. I think she’s found her passion. We couldn’t be more proud.”

PSL ‘City University’ holds class

T

he first class from “City University” is under our belts, and it’s like looking through a Swiss watch from the inside watching the movements of the gears and springs. We started with the 34 students in attendance taking part in the “getting-to-know-you” portion of the program by going around the room and introducing ourselves by our names, jobs and how long we have lived here. I listened for the bookends of oldest and newest residents that live here as they recited their info around the chamber. Chriesty Jordan moved here from New Jersey only three months ago and earned the title of the newest class resident. Jordan used to visit here as a middle-school student, so had a youth’s perspective familiarity with the area. “I had to learn the roadways because I wasn’t driving when I used to visit,” she replied when asked to compare her days here as a visitor compared to her new role as an adult and a mom. Jordan is also a student at Indian River State College, studying criminal justice. Gilda Weaver was the other bookend and earned the title of the longest resident of Port St. Lucie in the class. Weaver moved here 34 years ago in 1981 with her husband to retire, each having worked in the school system in Westchester

County, New York. “We heard about a land-buying program through the GDC to purchase properties for $10 down and then Mitch Kloorfain just $10 a month,” Weaver said when I asked her what was the hook that brought them here. Carmen Capezutto, project manager/emergency manager for the city, is the point person for the next few weeks of the program. Following his introduction as to what we can expect, he introduced each of the evening’s speakers. First up was a very energized city manager, Jeff Bremer. His time on the floor in the City Council chambers was spent colorfully laying out the hierarchy of the city’s personnel with charts, graphs and PowerPoint. Bremer was followed by Karen Phillips, city clerk, David Pollard, Office of Management and Budget, Ed Fry, finance director and Cheryl Shanaberger, director of procurement, to discuss their departments and how they all communicate within themselves and the 174,000 residents of the

My takeaway from the class was how the city has embraced technology as a way to communicate interdepartmentally and with the residents. The city has an app called “Access PSL,” which allows residents to report and include a photo of issues with city services, flooding, code violations etc. It will show you when it was reported and when the response was made, along with its status. With everybody communicating in different ways, the city is at the tech forefront of not losing that fight against its own future to keep the doors, phones, and roadways open, so that everybody who wants a say can have one. With everybody sitting in the theater-style setting for more than an hour, it was time to

stretch and have an interactive exercise of budgeting and defending projects you find important to the city’s quality of life. Class members were divided into groups and given certain projects, for example in the category of Parks & Recreation and their budget. “We were creative in getting our budget approved, because when there wasn’t enough money, we sought the difference through grants,” said class member Gilda Weaver. The class is a varied bunch, but the newest and longest residents both agreed on why they were here. They just want to know how the movements, gears and springs make the watch tick. Next week we enter the realm of Public Policy & Growth Management. Mitch Kloorfain is chief photographer of Your Voice News & Views, as well as an occasional columnist.

the traditional time-based coordination plan, which, simply put, needs to be manually programmed based on traffic counts. Again, these are done manually. This system works well on roads with consistent peak volumes, but is less than optimal where there are irregular volumes.” Uh, yeah, Dibenedetto isn’t going to get any argument about it being “less than optimal” on the boulevard delivering traffic through the West’s commercial district. But, he had a spot of good news to share. The mayor wasn’t speaking out of turn. There are plans to fix the problem. Like smart phones, traffic tech is getting better. “There are new systems out there that are ‘adaptive’ which

handle varying volumes and peaks much better,” Dibenedetto said. Yay! “We have most of the infrastructure in place such as the fiber optic interconnect and cameras that these systems require, and we are in the process of evaluating the many options available,” Dibenedetto continued. But, don’t start counting all those minutes you’ll save yet. Government moves … well, government moves about as fast as a SLW Boulevard traffic light. “We intend to begin upgrading (St. Lucie West Boulevard) to adaptive next (fiscal year) pending budget,” he wrote in the email. Uh, the next fiscal year starts in September. “Short of adding lanes going adaptive is the best thing to move traffic on that road,” Dibenedetto said.

Former QVC manager files to run for County Commission Bruno Moore

FOR YOUR VOICE NEWS & VIEWS

info@YourVoiceWeekly.com

ST. LUCIE COUNTY — Patrick Campion has nothing but praise for the sitting members of the St. Lucie County Board of County Commissioners. His respect for the governing body and the credit he gives it are heartfelt and sincere. Perhaps that is the motivation behind the veteran QVC manager’s bid for county commission District 3; to be part of that welloiled machine. The seat is also being sought by Port St. Lucie Vice Mayor Linda Bartz. Commissioner Paula Lewis is stepping down at the end of her term, leaving the seat up for grabs, and Campion isn’t shy about telling people he’s the best choice for the gig. “My job in management with QVC St. Lucie saw me managing resources, budgets and people locally and across the globe, as part of a Fortune 500 company with more than 17,000 employees and $9 billion in sales domestically in 2015,” he said. “I will be bringing those skills to the county commission as well.” Campion also attributes his qualifications to the many citizen advisory positions he has held as well. “I will use the knowledge and skills gained through working as a member of St. Lucie County’s Code Enforcement Board, as well as having helped craft county budgets and influencing county fiscal policy as a member of the St. Lucie County Budget Advisory Committee,” he said. The QVC closure, he says, is unfortunate, but insists that those in management positions

(P.S. THE LINE FORMS EARLY SO DON’T BE LATE) Patrick Campion there are working to relocate displaced employees. “Myself and other leaders at QVC have been working diligently to place employees who wish to remain with the company into positions in other locations such as Chesapeake, Virginia and San Antonio, Texas,” he said. This isn’t Campion’s first time running for office, however. In 2014, Campion was unsuccessful as a challenger to St. Lucie County Commissioner Tod Mowery. With the QVC closing, he says, he’s able to focus all his attention to his 2016 run. Commissioner Paula Lewis, a sort of mentor to Campion, is retiring from her seat in District 3, which encompasses much of Port St. Lucie south from St. James Avenue to the western parts of Port St. Lucie Boulevard. It also includes Port St. Lucie’s controversial City Center property on Walton Road and U.S. Highway 1. Campion says Lewis’ performance as commissioner will be tough to match. “She has been a gem in community service on the Treasure

I will do my best to blaze a new path as a county commissioner, but will always be mindful of her successes and attempt to emulate her good works,” Campion said. Among the issues on his radar are balancing the onward march of exponential growth with the lasting effects that growth has on local ecology. Campion has been a local advocate for the Indian River Lagoon and the endangered species that live there. “I want to expand our ability

to attract tourism and events, but be extremely mindful of our fragile ecosystem and unique water issues. And I intend to be a powerful voice against those from the outside who attempt to impose their poor decisions on our beautiful home,” he said. He nods to western communities like St. Lucie West and Tradition as areas which will be most impacted by Port St. Lucie’s expansion. “The future of St. Lucie County is clear. We will continue to grow. It is not a matter of if, but how. Electing responsible and knowledgeable leaders to the county commission are what will keep the area growing responsibly.”

Pre-apprenticeship program designed to fill shortage of workers with trade skills Jay Meisel

FOR YOUR VOICE NEWS & VIEWS

info@YourVoiceWeekly.com

ST. LUCIE WEST — For the past several years, construction-related workers found job hunting to be a challenge in St. Lucie County. But now that demand for construction workers and those skilled in related trades like electrical work, carpentry, masonry, welding and plumbing is increasing, contractors and subcontractors find it a challenge to fill positions. Bob Cenk, vice president of Homecrete Homes in St. Lucie West, says a lot of the problem is that former construction workers moved elsewhere or found different types of jobs. And, he added: “Our younger people are not going into the trades. They are out selling cell phones.”

In recent months, local builders, trades people, the St. Lucie County School District, county commissioners and CareerSource Research Coast have been working on a pre-apprenticeship program. St. Lucie County Commissioner Chris Dzadovsky said the hope is to begin in six months or so the program that will ultimately help to reduce that shortage. He said elected officials, including St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara, CareerSource Research Coast and school district representatives, the Treasure Coast Builders Association and people in the building industry have met to discuss the program. The aim is for teenagers too young for full apprenticeships the chance to learn the trade skills and possibly earn money, before going into full apprenticeships.

SKILLS from page A11 CareerSource and others involved are still working out the details as to how teenagers would enroll in the programs and who would be involved, said Desiree Gorman, executive operations and communications manager. Gorman said that Florida Training Services, based in Palm Beach County, could possibly provide the pre-apprenticeships. She said that the organization “is positioned to provide training in St. Lucie County to prepare students for marketable industry certifications and entry into registered apprenticeships. “The pre-apprenticeship program also provides employability skills training, work experience, and GED preparation and remediation in math and reading that may be needed in preparation for entry into apprenticeship curriculum and training,” she said. St. Lucie County School Board member Carol Hilson said she’s been promoting starting this type of program for years, and is happy the idea is gaining traction. She said she’s familiar with the shortage of skilled trade laborers, and such a program provides “that opportunity to create a bullpen of workers.” Hilson, who has been involved in developing the program, be-

lieves it could reduce future crime by offering young people not on a college track a chance to make a decent living. “If these teens can see a future, they will stay out of gangs,” Hilson said. The goal is to help teenagers “find a place in society that will be positive and something that will be beneficial to our region rather than negative,” Hilson said. When asked if he feels such a program is needed, County Commissioner Chris Dzadovsky said, “Absolutely. Vocational education is an area where we have missed the boat, not only in the state of Florida, but also on the Treasure Coast.” Dzadovsky said that college is not the optimum or desired future for some students. “Some students are better working with their hands,” he said. “These students need to find a job in a vocation that will allow them to be successful in life.” St. Lucie County has a Green Collar Apprenticeship program based in Fort Pierce, but the pre-apprenticeship program would target a younger age population, Dzadovsky said. “There’s definitely a need,” said Maddie Williams, executive direc-

ST. LUCIE COUNTY — Chief John Bolduc will hand his officers citations and the public is invited to watch — and give them some accolades. “I think it’s very important to recognize officers when they go above and beyond,” the chief said. “It adds to that esprit de corps that makes people want to get out there and do a good job.” The Police Awards Ceremony recognizing officers, detectives, civilian employees and volunteers for excellence will be at City Hall, 121 S.W. Port St. Lucie Blvd., on Feb. 9, at 1:30 p.m. Among other annual awards that’ll be handed out are Officer of the Year, and Detective of the Year for 2015. Eugene Gibbins and his K9 partner, Bingo, will receive the Officer of the Year recognition. Robert O’Hara will receive the Detective of the Year award. Something unusual may happen, too. “A member of the public requested to speak to thank the police department,” Bolduc said.

After the family’s home was burglarized and her child’s video-game was among the taken, officers pitched in to buy the lad another, he explained. Buldoc said he’s inspired by the professionalism of the men and women he works with, and he’s got evidence to prove in any court that’s not just platitudes he’s speaking. “We do have the lowest crime rate of any city (in Florida) with a population over 100,000 five years running,” the chief said. From 1998 to 2004, Port St. Lucie had the lowest crime rate of any city with a population greater than 75,000 up to 100,000 in Florida. By 2010, the city exceeded 100,000. It had the lowest crime rate in the state for that category 2010 to 2014. The 2015 Florida Department of Law Enforcement Uniform Crime Report will come out in early spring. The department has 230 sworn officers and detectives, along with about 60 crossing guards and 80 other civilian positions. Additionally, it has numerous volunteers. The chief pointed to one demonstration of the exemplary work found among the award recipients — O’Hara, the detective. “Detective work tends to go unnoticed, because it’s after the

The chief added, “(O’Hara) solves crimes before people know they were victims. He’ll recover property before they know it’s missing.” Buldoc said with national controversy swirling around some law-enforcement departments the last couple years, it’s an important time for local cops to know their community backs them. “There’s a lot of heavy decisions made on the front line every day,” the chief said. The PSL police hasn’t had any unusual complaints against it in recent years. Buldoc said community involvement is a part of making any department successful. “With everything going on nationwide, this police department is committed to proving a safe community while respecting everybody’s rights,” he said.

ST. LUCIE WEST — Lisa Pettey, St. Lucie West resident and local mother, wants to make a difference in the lives of people who are thinking about committing suicide. Her daughter, Ashley Pettey, was 30 years old when she took her life on Feb. 1, 2013. She enjoyed cooking and was a wine sommelier. She volunteered, working with kids. Mrs. Pettey shared, “Ashley was a tremendous artist, English major, in the restaurant business, loved reading, fashion, and she loved with her heart like a giant!” However, after experiencing the loss of several babies to miscarriage, she began a downhill spiral. The doctors prescribed medications, but Ashley slowly lost everything, interest in her favorite activities, work, her home, and then her life. “She was gone before she left us,” said Mrs. Pettey. She also said, “If I can help save one kid or person it makes a difference. There’s a moment of clarity when they don’t want to do it.” Mrs. Pettey suspected her daughter was thinking of hurting herself, but she didn’t know when or how. The stress of suicide for family was described in this way by Mrs. Pettey, “It takes a lot out of a family and destroys marriages.” She tried to intervene, but Ashley was too old and doctors continued giving her medications. Ashley was an only child; Mrs. Pettey regrets she will never experience grandchildren or walking her

Ashley Pettey daughter down the aisle on her wedding day. Mrs. Pettey shared, “People who commit suicide feel there is no other way out and that no one understands the pain. They are in a dark, sad place.” Learning the signs of suicide and asking the right questions could help to prevent a loved one from suicide. “There’s no rich or poor in suicide,” said Mrs. Pettey. By sharing my story, it may open that one person’s eyes. One of Mrs. Pettey’s goals is to start a foundation called Ashley’s Voice. She wants others to know this is a true story that happened to her and it could happen to you. In November 2015, Mrs. Pettey participated in AFSPs (American Foundation for Suicide Prevention) first walk in St. Lucie County called “Out of the Darkness” where over $10,000 was raised. The event featured the band Relayer, a Lifekeeper Memory Quilt

SUICIDE from page A20 (quilted squares with photos of lost loved ones), suicide prevention information, a memory wall, speakers, and more. The next walk will be held on Sunday, Nov. 6, 2016 at the St. Lucie Civic Center. The stigma of mental illness is in our society is starting to shift. Jane Harrington, from AFSP said, “People are starting to talk about it more and they aren’t as scared to admit they need help or to reach out and schedule an appointment with a mental health professional. We all make a yearly physical to check out our bodies from the neck down, why shouldn’t we do that for the neck up?” In Martin and St. Lucie Counties, AFSP has a number of prevention and educational programs they are implementing. Jane Harrington shared her message of hope by saying, “My message of hope for the community and those struggling with mental illness (or have a loved one with a mental illness) is that suicide is preventable. Ninety five percent of those that go on to die by suicide have a mental illness (either diagnosed or undiagnosed). If we can identify those people, connect them with lifesaving resources and get them treatment and help, together we really can save lives. It might not be an easy journey, but it is worth it.” Mrs. Pettey stated this for parents, “Communication is key. There is a sigma with suicide. Notice and look for behaviors that give clues to thoughts of suicide. Pick up literature, read books, research suicide.org, afsp. org, and get information from New Horizons. Check your child’s Facebook, phone messages, is there drug use, who are they hanging out with. The ability to commit suicide comes from drawing on strengths or building up to it. Once the person gets to the point of strength there is no going back and it’s too late.” If you have experienced a loss, Mrs. Pettey urged families to be there for each other, “people need to

help people, don’t play the blame game”, stay together, and support each other. Bringing more awareness can help people contemplating suicide, help them to live, and provide support groups for the family and friends. Pettey went on to say, at the national level, “we need an advocate in government that has had a loss of a child or someone close to stand up and create a voice out of the darkness.” Perhaps the government is headed in the right direction. New Horizons is a community mental health organization that has been open for 58 years on the Treasure Coast. They were one of the few programs chosen to attend the Zero Suicide Academy in Washington, DC. Since attending, New Horizons was awarded a four year grant for the “Zero Suicide” initiative. The state grant is through Florida LINC, (Linking Individuals Needing Care), and the Garrett Lee Smith Act and the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration. The purpose of the grant is sustainability of the program by New Horizons by the end of the four years. The Zero Suicide initiative will provide training on the Treasure Coast to their staff and community partners, such as law enforcement, school personnel, and the general public, to bring us to a place of “zero suicide”. New Horizons is in the process of training staff to approach clients with utilization of standardized tools to uncover thoughts of suicide. By asking the right questions, before it becomes suicide. The first phase, QPR, involves asking the right questions, persuading the person to ask for help or accept help, and refer them to the appropriate agency, such as New Horizons for help. Carruthers shared, “our CEO, John Romano spreads the message of hope and healing this way ‘One life lost to suicide is one to many.” The goal during the second year of the grant is to offer support

Jolien Caraballo to seek Port St. Lucie council seat FOR YOUR VOICE NEWS & VIEWS

ST. LUCIE COUNTY — Jolien Caraballo filed as a candidate for the Port St. Lucie council seat in District 4. Caraballo served briefly on the city council in 2014 during Councilman Ron Bowen’s suspension. Caraballo, 35, has lived in Port St. Lucie for 25 years. She attended Port St. Lucie High School and Indian River State College. Caraballo is director of operations for Fusion Aveda Salon and Spa, where she has worked for eight years. She currently serves on the Port St. Lucie Historical Society board and the Keep Port St. Lucie Beautiful committee. “I am running for city council to provide a voice for the small business community. Our small businesses create most of the local jobs and provide essential services for our residents. I also want to be an advocate for our citizens, helping to ensure that our public processes and records are ‘citizen-friendly,’ not complicated or cumbersome,” said Caraballo. Caraballo and her husband

Benjamin have two children, ages 14 and 5. “I love this city from the bottom of my heart. I want my two children to have a future here too,” said Caraballo. Jolien Caraballo “We need to create opportunities for all our children to be able to choose to stay here by fostering job growth, maintaining and even improving on our ‘safest city’ status, and ensuring city operations are smart and sound.” Even though her tenure on the city council was short, Caraballo’s efforts and enthusiasm were noted. In 2015, State Rep. Gayle Harrell nominated Caraballo as an Outstanding Young Leader for the 83rd District.

groups, which are extremely limited. Treasure Coast Hospice is the only agency that offers a Suicide support group in our area at this time. In the last four years, there were 320 suicides on the Treasure Coast, in which nine were teenagers. In the state teens/youth is the 2nd highest cause of death. The goal of this initiative is to make “suicide a never event”. The impact of suicide is tragic and far reaching. In other words, there are immediate family members that are affected, as well as extended family, friends, co-workers, and the list goes on. Carruthers said, “We need to listen to what our loved ones are saying AND to what they are not saying.” There are signs of suicide and taking the steps to educate ourselves is a proactive measure to prevent suicide. “That’s how we can help them,” stated Carruthers. In Florida, in 2014, there were 2,961 people that died by suicide in confirmed reports (CDC reports 3,035), 801 youth between the ages of 0-24, 243 between the ages of 10 and 18. Nationally, as reported by the Disease Control, in 2014, there were 42,773 deaths by suicide. New Horizons staff believes we

can have “Zero Suicide – By Asking the Important Questions EVERYTIME”. As part of the initiative, New Horizons will be offering free training programs throughout the Treasure Coast for community partners, in the QPR techniques, to assist people who are considering suicide. The first class on February 17th is full; however the class on March 16th, in Okeechobee, has limited seats available. For more information on program availability in your area call 561-316-8653. According to the Suicideaftercare.org website, Treasure Coast Hospice is one organization offering a Suicide Support Group serving Martin and St. Lucie Counties. For more information on this group you can call (772) 403-4530. If you are having thoughts of suicide, please call 911 or go to the nearest hospital. New Horizons has trained staff who give screening assessment for suicide and they are available 24 hours a day by calling (888) 468-5600. For more information on the programs at New Horizons, visit www.nhtcinc.org. In addition, for education specific to suicide, help for people with suicidal signs, and support for survivors visit www. afsp.org.

PSL Newcomers Club elects first-ever male president FOR YOUR VOICE NEWS & VIEWS

TRADITION — For the first time since its inception in 1982, Port St. Lucie Newcomers Club members have elected a male as its president. Greg Snider accepted the position at the Club’s December meeting during the Installation Ceremony for the new board. “I am pleased by the faith the members have placed in me and look forward to the challenges of this position,” Snider said. “This is a great organization. We are a social club; however, we are much more than that. “Our charitable activities are a large part of what and who we are. Not only do we provide yearly scholarships for IRSC students, we donate to local soup kitchens, collect coupons for soldiers and participate in fundraisers such as Alzheimer’s and the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. This is truly an altruistic club, and I’m

proud to be a member.” Other new board members installed during the December meeting included 1st Vice President Terri Watling, 2nd Vice Presidents Pat Newhouse and Nancy Grossman, Secretary Chris Radke, Treasurer Carolyn Snider, Historian Linda Auster, Inspirational Leader Roberta Cook and Parliamentarian Beth Hewitt. Monthly meetings are held the first Monday of every month at the Elks Lodge, 343 N.W. Prima Vista Blvd., Port St. Lucie. Social hour begins at 9 a.m., followed by the meeting at 10 a.m. Yearly dues are $25. “You do not have to be a new Port St. Lucie resident to join,” said Snider. “You only have to live in St. Lucie County and be ready to have some fun while helping some of our less-fortunate citizens.” For more information about the Newcomers Club and its activities, contact Greg Snider at (248) 207-1174 or gksnider@gmail.com

Treasure Coast Food Bank earns Hall of Fame status FOR YOUR VOICE NEWS & VIEWS

TREASURE COAST — Treasure Coast Food Bank has again been named to Feeding America’s Advocacy Hall of Fame, recognizing the agency as a constant advocate for people facing hunger. Treasure Coast Food Bank is the only Florida food bank to earn the distinction and one of only 36 nationwide. Each year since the program was created, Treasure Coast Food Bank has received the distinction from Feeding America as a leading advocate. Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger relief organization, created the national recognition program in 2013. “We’re proud to again be recognized for our role in advocating for people who struggle with hunger,” said Krista Garofalo, Chief Programs Officer for Treasure Coast Food Bank. “For us it’s business as usual to get out to the community a better under-

standing about how policies and programs are going to impact the people in need.” To become a member of the Advocacy Hall of Fame, food banks must show frequent communication that advocates as well as educates with elected leaders, grassroots supporters, and through leaders on issues of concern to the nation’s food bank network. Each year Garofalo and Treasure Coast Food Bank CEO Judith Cruz travel to Washington, D.C., to meet with members of Congress and discuss upcoming legislation or policy issues. Important topics discussed at the national level in 2015 included the Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act, the National School Lunch Program, and summer hunger among school children, maternal, infant and fetal nutrition, and the role of local farmers in providing nutritious food locally.

He said that the problem isn’t new. He said he’s been here for 20 years, and there’s always been an issue in finding trained workers. Cenk said increases in demand for new homes have resulted in subcontractors recruiting employees from other subcontractors. That increases wages, “and it’s not filling the empty hole. It’s shifting people from one place to another,” he said.

Closer to home, ongoing advocacy includes the role of Treasure Coast Food Bank’s Hunger Free Coalitions. Coalition members meet regularly to discuss solutions specific to their county for fighting hunger and poverty. Also in 2015, Treasure Coast Food Bank’s advocacy team worked with local school districts, local growers and farmers, and elected officials to expand the USDA Farm 2 School program throughout the region. During Hunger Action Month in September, Treasure Coast Food Bank engaged the entire Treasure Coast through online campaigns as well as with a series of local and regional public events. Treasure Coast Food Bank will begin immediately this year on two impactful issues: the Child

Nutrition Reauthorization, and the effects of changes to SNAP benefits, formerly known as food stamps, Garofalo said. “We’ll be Judith Cruz working on the Child Nutrition Reauthorization, which was not included in the omnibus bill passed late last year. This is a big, big priority because it affects many important hunger-relief programs,” Garofalo said. “We’ll also be helping people understand what’s going on with some of the changes to SNAP and how it may mean more adults looking to food pantries for food assistance.”

SURF from page A1 The franchise “gives local youth players something to look up to, to inspire them to play, try, and strive,” says Jack DiGiorgio, events specialist at the Civic Center and organizer of the conference, as well as a longtime referee and coach. “This is a really big move,” says Alex Baptiste, a local soccer player who is connected with Port St. Lucie Soccer Club and the Mako Soccer Club in St. Lucie West. “There is a lot of talent in the Treasure Coast, but it is never really recognized. Before now, players have had to seek recognition outside of the Treasure Coast.” Arbuzow is joined by head coach Peter Fuller and assistant coach Trevor Adair, both weathered soccer professionals. Official staff announcements and news on upcoming tryouts will be broadcast sometime next month. While their scouting has been extensive, Head Coach Peter Fuller says they aim to be attentive to local players. Four players from the Treasure Coast have already committed, according to Fuller. Todd Eason, PDL director, said, “The one thing that stands out in St. Lucie is its high aspirations and focus on community impact. They’re going to raise the bar of the league.”

The affiliation also means good things for the team. In the soccer world, the PDL is considered one of the best farm leagues in the world. They boast a yearly 70 per cent success rate for getting players into the professional league, and 12 of their teams are owned by Major League Soccer (MLS). Fuller, who has coached with celebrated MLS teams New York Revolution and Philadelphia Union, says he’s looking forward to helping form the new fran-

chise. “It’s a great opportunity with a great group of people to start building a foundation, to be on the ground floor of something from the beginning. We’re going to present a product that brings pride to PSL,” he says. All of SFSSC’s home games will be played at South County Stadium, beginning May 7.

Shanghai Gardens fuses Chinese style and American tradition FOR YOUR VOICE NEWS & VIEWS

info@YourVoiceWeekly.com

ST. LUCIE COUNTY — Finding a Chinese restaurant that isn’t “buffet style,” and isn’t a bland cobble of tourism posters and ancient calendars is a tough chore. Port St. Lucie’s newest Chinese favorite, however, doesn’t just break that mold — it demolishes it. Shanghai Gardens is a trip through Chinese cuisine that will make you re-evaluate your take on Chinese dining. The restaurant, on the corner of Kitterman and U.S. Highway 1 in Port St. Lucie, is decidedly not a dated, hole-in-the-wall place. Modern décor, color TVs and a gleaming bar stocked with every sort of libation greet guests. The menu, stacked with savory items that couple traditional Chinese cuisine with contemporary American fare, is reasonably priced and the selection is seemingly limitless. For starters, we selected the Pu Pu platter for less than $13. With chicken tenders, teriyaki ribs and a host of other appetizer samplers on this selection, dinner was just a bonus. Four people could have easily eaten. Becca McKinney, a server at Shanghai Gardens, has been there since the business launched in December, and says its popularity can be attributed to the way the restaurant is run. “It’s a family restaurant, and it’s really a nice thing to be a part of. Ray’s family

works in the kitchen, they work up front too,” she said. Ray is head chef Raymond Mui, a transplant from Massachusetts by way of southern China, where he was trained. His goal, he says, was to build on what makes Chinese food popular in the U.S. “Most American people like Polynesian food. We lean more towards that.” According to Chef Ray, their most popular item is Peking Duck, which is Ray’s favorite. But take a spin around the menu and you’ll be intrigued with what you’ll find. One stand-out item is literally called “Strange Flavored Chicken,” and begged to be tried. Sautéed with herbs, a heady sauce and crisp mixed veggies, the “strange flavor” was hardly as strange as it is delicious. Combined with their signature Shanghai Lager from the bar, the meal was rich, flavorful and unique. The restaurant’s sports bar hours are 11 a.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays. With a two-for-one happy hour and soon to launch lady’s night on Thursdays, it’s sure to be a destination for more than just lovers of Chinese cuisine. If it is Chinese cuisine you’re after, the succulent Peking Duck, the Wasabi-inspired hot mustard dipping sauce and free fried won-tons will keep you coming back. Shanghai Gardens located at 6634 S. US Hwy 1 in Port St. Lucie. For more information call (772) 409-4516.

JazzScat It’s a score; Twenty years of the Fort Pierce Jazz & Blues Society

T

wenty years ago, Darryl Bey, Larry Lee, Jr., and a group of individuals who loved music – particularly jazz, got together to create the Fort Pierce Jazz and Blues Society. For twenty years, we’ve been providing great music performed by terrific musicians, and helping to spread the music throughout the Treasure Coast. Along the way, we’ve provided over $100,000 in scholarships for aspiring young musicians from St. Lucie, Indian River, and Martin Counties throughout annual scholarship programs. You can surely understand why we’re so excited to be celebrating our 20th birthday, and we’d like to invite you to share in our year of fun and festivities. In addition to our usual Tuesday Night Jazz Jams at the Sunrise Black Box Theatre in historic downtown Fort Pierce and our twice-monthly Wednesday Evening Jazz Jams at the Port St. Lucie Botanical Gardens, the Fort Pierce Jazz and Blues Society is

long-known for the incredible talent and variety we bring each year to our Jazz Week celebration. To help celebrate our 20th birthday, we’ve Don Bestor stepped our Jazz Week festivities up another notch – if that’s possible, and the entire community is invited to enjoy free concerts, featuring some of the finest music you’ve ever heard, performed by seasoned professionals whose credits include sharing the stage with some of the world’s most highly-respected musicians. This year’s Jazz Week will start on Saturday, March 26, as we provide an assist to our wonderful friends at Main Street Fort Pierce through the fabulous Sandy Shoes Festival, and we’ll keep your toes tapping and your fingers snapping for a full week of fun with our official Jazz Week Celebration starting on Sunday, March 27, with the triumphant

S U N R I S E T H E AT R E

ST. LUCIE COUNTY — St. Lucie County, in partnership with the City of Fort Pierce and the Treasure Coast Sports Commission, has secured the 2016 Southern Kingfish Association’s National Championship Tournament to be held in Fort Pierce Nov. 7-13. The event is expected to draw hundreds of anglers and tournament sponsors from around the country bringing positive economic impact and exposure to the area. Fort Pierce was the host location in 2010 for the SKA’s National Championship Tournament, generating an estimated $750,000 in economic impact, but with the Fort Pierce City Marina’s recent expansion and a healthier economy, county and city officials are hopeful that the event will bring 250-300 teams to the area generating an even larger economic impact. The Treasure Coast Sports Commission (TCSC), which is funded by the St. Lucie Coun-

ty Tourist Development Council using county tourist taxes, will be the funding agency for the event. In addition to the 2016 host agreement, the SKA has committed to hosting the nationals every three years in Fort Pierce and during off years, the SKA has agreed to add Fort Pierce to the tournament’s Pro Tour schedule. “The mission of the Treasure Coast Sports Commission’s mission is not only to recruit sporting events, but to retain them. This multi-year contract allows us to work with the SKA on an annual basis, rather than just every three years. This is excellent for our area and hopefully sets the stage to bring future national tournaments by other fishing organizations to Fort Pierce,” said Rick Hatcher, executive director of the Treasure Coast Sports Commission.

as the chairman of the Tourist Development Council, was instrumental in securing the event making the initial contact to Southern Kingfish Association (SKA) proposing Fort Pierce as its next host city. “We all are familiar with the connotation of the Treasure Coast. To anglers they know that our fishing grounds are a treasure trove in themselves,” said Dzadovsky. “With securing this agreement with the Southern Kingfish Association with a multi-year commitment, our area businesses, hoteliers, restaurants, and tourist venues will benefit annually from the treasures they will experience.” St. Lucie, Florida is home to the historic City of Fort Pierce, the vibrant City of Port St. Lucie and the beautiful uncrowded beaches of Hutchinson Island. St. Lucie is located on the Atlantic Ocean along the east coast of Florida, 120 miles

southeast of Orlando and 115 miles north of Miami with direct access from Florida’s Turnpike, Interstate 95 and State Road 70. The area offers an array of visitor activities including beautiful beaches, championship golf, outdoor and nature adventures for eco-tourists, a thriving arts and cultural scene, world class fishing and dozens of unique attractions.

FOR YOUR VOICE NEWS & VIEWS

ST. LUCIE WEST — The Eagle Regiment, St. Lucie West Centennial High School’s band, would love to go to the Worldstrides Heritage Festival in New Orleans April 15-17. There, they will have the opportunity to meet students from around the country and perform for national judges who will provide critiques and help to make them better musicians. The only impediment to the trip is the cost. To send 78 musicians and their instruments will cost $40,000, $15,000 of it for the rental of two charter buses. The students have raised $8,000 from donations, concerts, a spaghetti dinner, carwashes and a garage sale, but

now they need the help of the community to support them and make the trip a reality. Gary Burnette is in his first year as band director of the Eagle Regiment. He was born in Fort Pierce and went to St. Lucie County schools. He began college and left to join the Florida Army National Guard, where he was deployed to Kosovo. In 2013, he graduated from college and now, in his first teaching job and he has big plans. “I always enjoyed traveling in high school,” he said, “It inspired me to be a better musician. I was able to learn from seeing other cultures, communities and bands. I want to provide the same opportunity.” The Eagle Regiment is an award-winning group and Burnette hopes the community will rally to its aid. “We would like to get community support on a larger scope and reach out to the community of the Treasure Coast to provide a culturally enriching (experience)

so that they would be able to see a community outside their own and perform on a global stage,” he said. “Students will perform and have the opportunity to work with top clinicians to make their performances better. It will be fun and a valuable learning experience.” The bulk of the expense, the $15,000 for charter buses, is necessary because buses can only carry 55 students. Two buses are needed to accommodate students, instruments and parent chaperones. There is also the cost of accommodations, meals, an $850 registration fee, and money for sightseeing and museums in one of the most interesting cit-

ies in the United States. “We’re hoping for sponsorships,” Burnett said, “Any businesses willing and able (to help) would be great. We need all payments by March 15 or the kids can’t go.” Right now, the group is in the middle of the competition season, but they have a concert scheduled for Feb. 19 at the high school. “It’s a mixture of classical and jazz tunes and modern pop tunes,” Burnette said. This is a great opportunity to help a group of kids who don’t always get the recognition they deserve. For some, it’s a first opportunity to travel. Please step up to the plate and help these kids get to New Orleans. The Eagle Regiment will present a band concert Feb. 19 at St. Lucie West Centennial High School, 1485, S.W. Cashmere Blvd, Port St. Lucie. Tickets are $5. They can be purchased at the band room or at www.slwchsbands.org.
