City to honor Independence Day with a bang Nicole Rodriguez Staff writer

nrodriguez@YourVoiceWeekly.com

PORT ST. LUCIE — For more than 20 years, city residents have gathered to remember history, give thanks to today’s military freedom fighters and celebrate the nation’s independence, declared on July 4, 1776. In keeping with its patriotic customs, the city will host Freedomfest on July 4 at the Port St. Lucie Civic Center. The family-friendly tradition is one of the city’s biggest, one time attracting a whopping 10,000, city council members said. “Freedomfest is the culmination of all of our best holidays and it is a community event,” Councilwoman Michelle Berger said. “There is no bigger

event in Port St. Lucie, I don’t think, than Freedomfest ... People are out in droves.” The free event, which includes free parking, takes more than eight months to plan and

ST. LUCIE COUNTY — Just as the St. Lucie County School Board was to choose a new superintendent, several developments caused the board to halt the decision indefinitely and expand the search to include more candidates. The school district’s two remaining candidates, Darci Mohr and Agnella Perera, are on standby after two of their competitors recently withdrew from the running. Scott Bailey, chief academic officer of Washoe County School District in Reno, Nev., cited health reasons, while the only local candidate, Mark Rendell, St. Lucie County School District assistant superintendent, said his family needed stability, something the race for superintendent hindered, board members said. He will continue working at his current position at the

TREASURE COAST — Statewide the unemployment numbers continue an inching decline, but St. Lucie and Martin counties had an upward bump from April to May. “This time of year, our rate always bumps up a little bit,” Odaly Victorio, communications coordinator for Workforce Solutions of the Treasure Coast, said. According to the monthly jobs report the state’s Department of Economic Opportunity released on Friday, June 21, Florida’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was at 7.1 percent in May, the lowest it’s been since September 2008. That month the unemployment rate was 7.0 percent. The state’s unemployment rate has declined in year-over-year comparisons for 31 straight

Garden Club looks to help disabled enjoy nature with ease Nicole Rodriguez Staff writer

nrodriguez@YourVoiceWeekly.com

ST. LUCIE WEST — The St. Lucie West Garden Club is looking to help the community while promoting the club’s love of nature. Members recently bought a wheelchair from a local second-hand shop and are searching for the perfect home for the chair after its original recipient was unable to accept it for legal reasons. Club President Uta McFadden said she gave the wheelchair to the Port St. Lucie Botanical Gardens, a gift the gardens accepted with open arms. But the fine print got in the way, McFadden said. Because of strict liability rules, the Botanical Gardens was unable to keep the wheelchair, a disappointed McFadden said. “It was a good idea and they were very, very happy and now we’re in a dilemma,” McFadden said. The wide wheelchair, perfect for heavier users, would have made it easier for anyone with even the slightest of disabilities, to enjoy the 20-acre grounds, which contains a Bromeliad Island Garden. The St. Lucie West Garden Club regularly maintains the garden they created last year. McFadden said she and her 40 members are researching other gardens in the area. “I would like to do it for a garden,” she said. “It’s just like

an extension to give something to people who enjoy flowers and gardening and everything like that.” If worse comes to worst, the club may consider keeping the wheelchair for its own disabled members, the club’s vice president Paula Eliasek, said. “In the club we have several ladies who feel like they don’t necessarily have to go out on outings with us because they can’t walk well. We have field trips every year,” Eliasek said. “The idea of us having one to use on our own would solve that issue.” Finding the perfect home for its newest purchase isn’t the club’s first dabble in paying it forward. Each year, the club sends a handful of children to a nature camp in the central part of the state. “We sent six last year. This year only three,” said McFadden, who said raising funds was a challenge this year. To help pay for the annual trip, the club hosts a yearly fashion show and even does its own clothes exchange auction among members. Anything raised goes to the camp fund, McFadden said. McFadden said sending the kids to camp is always a joy. “The kids always send us beautiful ‘Thank you’ notes when they get back,’ McFadden said. For more information on the St. Lucie West Garden Club or if you believe your nature organization is a match for the wheelchair, call Uta McFadden at (772) 871-0830.

FREEDOMFEST from page 1 costs less than $10,000 to pull off. Last year, a band provided the event’s live music. This year, it’s one big dance party from 7:30-10 p.m., a city representative said. New food eating contests have also been added for aspiring competitive eaters just waiting for his or her big break on Travel Channel. “We do it every year and it gets bigger and better every year,” Mayor JoAnn Faiella said. “We’re pretty excited to have it again this year.” A staple of the event is the spectacular fireworks display that ends the night. The show is set to last 30 minutes long. “The fireworks are second-to-none,” Vice Mayor Linda Bartz said. “It really is a great, great day.” Fanfare aside, Bartz said the day’s significance lies in honoring America’s independence, Constitution and troops who keep the nation free. “We all have a chance on July 4 to go out there and say, ‘We are free,’ ‘We thank you because we know freedom is not free,’” Bartz said, referring to honoring our nation’s veterans. The Martin Health System Village Square and the Port St. Lucie Civic Center are on the southeast corner of U.S. Highway 1 and Walton Road. Call (772) 807-4499 for more information. Freedomfest begins at 2 p.m. and ends at 10 p.m. For prime firework seating and an expanded food menu, the Freedomfest VIP party will feature a buffet (including pulled pork, chicken quarters or strips, hot dogs and all the fixings) starting at 6:30 p.m. on the back patio of the Civic Center. Tickets are on sale now for the VIP Party at a cost of $25 for adults and $10 for children 3 to 12 years old. Children 2 and younger are admitted free.

Noted cancer researcher joins VGTI Shelley Koppel Staff writer

skoppel@YourVoiceWeekly.com

PORT ST. LUCIE — The Vaccine & Gene Therapy Institute of Florida recently announced the appointment of Keith Knutson as oncology program director. Knutson, who holds a doctorate in pharmacology from the University of Georgia, previously served as director of the Ovarian Cancer and Immunology Program at the Mayo Clinic. Knutson’s work at VGTI, located at the Tradition Center for Innovation, will continue to focus on using the immune system and vaccine to help the body fight ovarian and breast cancers. He recently received a $3.7 million grant from the National Cancer Institute to identify proteins or other markers in the body that make certain patients unlikely to respond to some therapies. In a phone interview, Knutson spoke about the challenges of his new position and the work ahead. He is excited about his move to VGTI. “VGTI is in its infancy,” he said. “We just moved within the last year into a new facility. There is a long road ahead on terms of

establishing a strong cancer presence. We hope to develop a strong interactive team to come up with novel solutions for treatments for several types of cancers. “One of the buzzwords is ‘Dream Team.’ It is an effective approach to bring investigators with different expertise to work collaboratively in a synergistic fashion. That’s the long-term vision of VGTI and a most powerful magnet for me to take this position.” The idea of vaccine to prevent cancer is not a new one and some have proved successful. “A good example of a cancer vaccine is the cervical cancer vaccine,” he said. “It generates an immune response against and an infective agent, HPV. We have a specific target. Breast and ovarian cancer don’t have an agent like a virus. Some people are working to find a bacterial or viral cause, but there are no strong contenders.” Knutson noted that there are clinical trials ongoing to test vaccines to prevent the recurrence of breast cancer. “The hope on the prevention front is to conduct clinical trials testing a variety of antigens in individuals at high risk,” he said. “We don’t know what causes

breast cancer, but we do know it represents a lifetime of risk. It may have its origins early on. “It could be that some subsets have some kind of exposure that causes a mutation, or it could be multiple hits. One of the challenges at VGTI is to understand the host (body) and how it contributes to the development of disease. What are the sequences that have to occur? The researcher noted that for some cancers, such as lung cancer, we have identified a behavior, smoking, that causes disease. That behavior can be modified. “There is some evidence with breast cancer that environment plays a role,” he said. “Women who come from other cultures and adopt a Western lifestyle are at higher risk.” Research is ongoing to try to identify the factors that increase that risk and to try to determine why certain people develop cancer while others do not. “Imagine, for a moment, a healthy individual who develops a tumor,” Knutson said. “The immune system sees it and the tumor disappears. We have no idea it was there. There is no clinical evidence of its existence. For those who do develop tumors,

it has gotten around those mechanisms. They are being identified and immune modulators are on the horizon to activate an immune response. For breast cancer, part of the challenge of treatment is identifying the characteristics of the tumor. The goal in making the identification is to target tailor treatments to the tumor type, “We need clinical trials to correlate features with outcomes,” Knutson said. “We’re just starting to understand the genomic features. We don’t have good understanding of biomarkers that Keith Knutson would inform us how pathogenic a tumor is or what treatment (would work.) Over the next decade or two, we’ll have a better understanding of treatments. Herceptin is a great example of a targeted therapy.” Herceptin is used for breast cancer patients who are HER2 positive. That means they overexpress a protein that causes cancer cells to multiply. The therapy has proved successful with many such patients.

VGTI from page 5 Knutson was recently selected as a committee member of the National Institutes of Health’s Tumor Microenvironment Study Section with the Center for Scientific Review. “What it brings to VGTI is exposure to the latest research,” he said. (It’s also an opportunity) to take part on helping NIH decide what applications are meritorious for further funding. It brings a level or responsibility to VGTI and exposure to a group of individuals

to potentially establish collaborations. I’m excited.” Excitement, in fact, is a word Keith Knutson uses frequently. It is a challenging time to be a researcher. “I think this is an exciting time. There are a lot of resources being put into developing targeted therapies. We hope to develop something that works well for patients.” For more information about VGTI, visit the website, www.VGTIFL. org.

Meet your St. Lucie Mets: Aderlin Rodriguez 3rd baseman Patrick Bernadeau

FOR YOUR VOICE NEWS & VIEWS

Aderlin Rodriguez ing six long balls and driving in 29 RBIs. “Through the struggles and still trying to adjust to the league, pitch recognition has been the key to my improvement from the beginning of the year,” Rodriguez said. “At the end of the day, swinging at strikes and making sure I’m not swinging outside of the strike zone is what’s going to help me get better.” At the time of press, Rodriguez ranks second on the Mets in hits (64), home runs (9), and RBIs (41). Asked who some of the current players are that he admires, Rodriguez was quick to name fellow countrymen David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox, Albert Pujols of the Los Angeles Angles, Alex Rodriguez and Panamanian Mariano Rivera of the New York Yankees. With Pujols and Rivera, Rodriguez’ admiration has as much to do with their actions off the field as it does on it. “Although they’ve been in the spotlight and are playing in big cities, they’ve always had this lifestyle where they’re never in trouble,” Rodriguez said.

ST. LUCIE WEST — The Dominican Republic has been a breeding ground for major league baseball players for more than half a century. Late in the 1956 MLB season, Ozzie Virgil, from Monte Cristi, Dominican Republic, became the Dominican to play in the majors. From the time Virgil stepped on the field for the New York Giants, 866 players from the Dominican Republic have accomplished their dream of putting on a Major League uniform. St. Lucie Mets’ third baseman Aderlin Rodriguez, he soon hopes to be amongst the next batch of players to push that number into the thousands. At the tender age of 16, Rodriguez’ baseball journey began in 2008 after signing as an undrafted free agent from Santo Dominigo with the New York Mets organization. He signed a minor-league deal worth $600,000. “Getting signed was the first step for me to fulfilling my dream,” Rodriguez said. “With the money I got from my deal, I was able to put my family back home in a better position economically. They are living in a new home. Life has changed.” “But being signed is just the first step in the big picture. My vision is to play in the major leagues.” Rodriguez would play in 300 games before making his debut with the St. Lucie Mets in the summer of 2012. Delivering on what scouts believe to be his greatest attribute, Rodriguez displayed his raw power by clubbing eight home runs, driving in 24 RBIs and hitting .242 in 42 games for St. Lucie last year. Still acclimating to Class A+ pitching, Rodriguez slumped out of the gate this season, hitting just .186 through the first month before a complete reversal of fortune in May. In 26 games in May, Rodriguez would nearly double his April average, hitting .343 while smash-

SUPER from page 1 district. In the meantime, Deputy Superintendent Genelle Yost will become interim superintendent when Michael Lannon retires after a decade at the district’s helm. Although a good candidate, Yost becoming the superintendent is unlikely, national search consultant Jim Huge said. “She is in that drop window when she has to retire in two years,” Huge said. School board member Kathryn Hensley said she’s confident Yost will be a good leader as the board continues its search. “We do not have a timeline. We have left it very open-ended because we have an extremely strong interim who will be our interim superintendent (starting) July 1,” Hensley said. “It is much more important for us to find the right match than to have a line on the sand with a date,” said Hensley, who said her frontrunner had been Scott Bailey. Hensley added after Bailey withdrew, she believed the community consensus was mixed. Hensley said the extra time will be beneficial in the long run. “It is very important we take our time to make sure that we get someone who understands us, has a fairly significant term of commitment to us. I’d like see someone who can be committed five years to St. Lucie County,” Hensley said. “It is extremely important, because it is not just the schools, it is the community.” “We know that you build economic sustainability through your K-12 system. So it is important that we have someone who is going to work with the community at large. We spent many years building collaborative coalitions,” she said. “Somebody coming in needs to have that ability to kind of step in that and move us even further in those opportunities.” Huge said twists and turns in the search process are common in recent times. “This happens more frequent-

Although a timeline hasn’t been fixed, Huge said he expects interviews to resume soon. “We will re-advertise and reopen the search and do interviews again (this) fall with the expectation that person will report next fall (in 2014),” said Huge, who already has two potential candidates in mind. School board member Carol Hilson said at the end of the day, she’d like a unanimous board when it comes to selecting a new leader. “Even if we had a 3-2 vote, that’s not what you want to do when you’re selecting a superintendent. I would say, I’d like it to be a unanimous decision,” said Hilson, who added the board was not in agreement before the pair withdrew. Still in the running:

“I’m looking at the region’s numbers, and for April it was 8.1 and for May 8.5 (percent),” Victorio said. “Last year, it was 9.9 in April and 10.1 in May. The increase we had has been historically consistent.” She said the region has a different tourism season than other parts of the state, which contributes to a May to August unemployment slump. “(The unemployment rate will) inch upward a little more before it goes down again,” she said. “In September, traditionally, it goes down. It peaks in August.” Victorio said looking at yearover-year comparisons show that the local area is recovering slowly but nicely from the recent economic downturn along with the state and nation.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY — St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara is cautioning area residents to beware of a new mystery shopper scam that issues participants bogus checks and also asks for money. “No legitimate ‘secret shopper’ program asks you to send someone else any money,” Mascara said in a news release. “If this happens to you, don’t deposit the check in your account and don’t send payment to another individual. Instead, call 911, and we’ll send a deputy.” An immediate red flag that a program is illegitimate, the Sheriff’s Office warns, is when dishonest promoters request money or ask for funds to be sent or wired to someone else. If participants attempt to deposit or cash a bad check from the mystery shopper scam, the bank will hold the participant responsible for the fraudulent transaction, the Sheriff’s Office said. “That’s why you should call law enforcement and not deposit the check,” Mascara said in the release. “No legitimate company will pay you and ask you to pay someone else as part of a mystery shopper program or for any other reason.” Individuals usually get involved with a secret shopper scam through printed or Internet advertising or by receiving an e-mail message. To date, less than a dozen local residents have contacted authorities about the scam, the Sheriff’s Office said. According to the Federal Trade Commission’s website, retailers occasionally hire companies to evaluate the quality of service in their stores and frequently use mystery shoppers to get the information. Retailers instruct a mystery shopper to make a particular purchase in a store or restaurant and then report back about the experience. Usually, the shopper is reimbursed and keeps the product or service. Sometimes the shopper even receives a small payment, the website states. If you believe you are being asked to participate in a fraudulent mystery shopper program,

or any program in which you are paid money and asked to pay someone else, the Sheriff’s Office asks that you call 911.

Tips for finding legitimate mystery shopping jobs: • Research mystery shopping. Check libraries, bookstores, or online sites for tips on how to find legitimate companies hiring mystery shoppers, as well as how to do the job effectively. • Search the Internet for reviews and comments about mystery shopping companies that are accepting applications online. • Remember that legitimate companies don’t charge people to work for them — they pay people to work for them. • Never wire money as part of a mystery shopping assignment. • Visit the Mystery Shopping Providers Association website at mysteryshop.org to search a database of mystery shopper assignments and learn how to apply for them. The MSPA offers certification programs for a fee, but you don’t need “certification” to look — or apply — for assignments in its database.

Don’t do business with mystery shopping promoters who: • Advertise for mystery shoppers in a newspaper’s ‘help wanted’ section or by email. • Require that you pay for “certification.” • Guarantee a job as a mystery shopper. • Charge a fee for access to mystery shopping opportunities. • Sell directories of companies that hire mystery shoppers. • Ask you to deposit a check and wire some or all of the money to someone.

ST. LUCIE WEST — Thomas Bold is the music director of St. Bernadette Catholic Church, but he is gaining renown throughout the Treasure Coast for the musicians he brings to the church during its annual concert series. The series, begun by Bold in 2010 with one concert, has grown into a season running from December through March. It opens Dec. 2 with the Academy Orchestra, the premier ensemble from the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony. That ensemble pairs outstanding young musicians with professional musicians. The concert will present the music of Mannheim Steamroller, including holiday and non-holiday selections. On Dec. 15, OPUS, the prestigious choral ensemble from Martin County High School, will present a concert of Christmas music. The group made its Paris debut last year. Italian pianist Francesco Attesti returns to St. Bernadette Jan. 6 to play Gershwin’s

an interview earlier this year, Bold spoke about the reason for the series. “Here at St. Bernadette, we celebrate stewardship in the highest level with artists from around the world and around the corner,” he said. “Our mission is to bring the Treasure Coast world-class entertainment at incredibly affordable ticket prices.” The St. Bernadette Catholic Church Concert Series begins on Dec. 2 with the Academy Orchestra of the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony. Concerts are held at the Church, 350 N.W. California Blvd., Port St. Lucie at 7 p.m. Packages will be available for mixing and matching programs. Individual tickets will range from $20-35, depending on the performer. Children sixth grade and under are admitted free; children seventh grade and up pay half-price. Information about the concerts and the performers and to purchase tickets will be available at a new website, www.boldtunes.com., which will be up and running by the end of the summer. There is also a new phone number for the series, (772) 224-7089.
