City to sell Digital Domain building for $14 million

Learning the ropes and reins

TRADITION — The city has agreed to sell the vacant Digital Domain studio for $14 million, but details about the buyer and his plans for the building are still hazy. The Port St. Lucie City Council voted 4-1 to accept the offer from Horizon Central Global LLC at its July 8 meeting. City staff expects to close the deal on or before Nov. 28. The only dissenting vote belonged to Councilwoman Michelle Berger, who said a 30-minute meeting with the purchaser, Richard Friedberg, left her with even more questions. “I’d prefer more than a half hour meeting with an individual who gave me not enough details,” Berger said. Horizon Central Global is a company registered in Delaware, interim city manager Jeff Bremer said. It created a Vero Beachbased corporation this year solely to purchase Tradition Studios. The parent company’s name is unknown, but Bremer said it is involved in investment, construction and property purchase. Horizon Central Global’s mother company, owned by Richard Friedberg, is currently conducting construction on upscale student housing at Florida Atlantic University and has done similar

McCarty Ranch conflict resolution could be win for SLW Nicole Rodriguez Staff writer

ST. LUCIE WEST — Should the city soon wrangle control of an expansive tract of land it owns just west of PGA Village, the benefits to St. Lucie West Services District customers would be bountiful, officials said. The 3,107-acre tract of land, known as McCarty Ranch located off Glades Cutoff and Range Line roads, is currently controlled and zoned by St. Lucie County because it is located in an unincorporated area within the county’s

boundaries. The city of Port St. Lucie bought the land in November for $10 million to use for water treatment and recreational use. If the land is annexed into the city, the St. Lucie West Services District could acquire acres at a low price to use as storm water retention ponds, which would help ease flooding in the area, district manager Dennis Pickle said. For every acre purchased, the district would be required to mitigate, or set aside, 1.5 acres as preserved areas, the ranch’s current designation per state

Golfers to receive new greens Nicole Rodriguez Staff writer

nrodriguez@YourVoiceWeekly.com

ST. LUCIE WEST — Golfers eager to make par on the PGA Country Club course can’t play the game until fall, but the wait will be well worth it, course pros said. The course will be closed until Oct. 1 because of a massive capital improvement project to the turf on all 18 holes, Chris Donahue, head golf professional at PGA Golf Club, said. The club’s Wanamaker and Ryder courses underwent the process within the past five years, Donahue said. “We decided back in February to replace all of the greens. It’s a pretty normal thing to do. About every 10 years, you replace greens,” Donahue said. The project began close to two months ago, Donahue said. It includes replacing all 18 greens, the practice putting green and the driving range turf. The time-consuming process includes removing 20 inches of turf and dirt and replacing it with newand-improved soil and grass. The project will improve the course’s health and improve play.

“It gets rid of all of the contamination,” said Donahue, who added the course will be installing high-quality Tiff Eagle grass. “It gives a better and truer putting surface.” The course, which lies just beyond the gates of the Country Club Estates, was created by acclaimed course designer Jim Fazio, and is noted for its small greens and already fast putting surfaces. The course contains 10 holes with water and more than 80 bunkers that provide an added challenge to the relatively narrow fairways, according to PGAVillage. com. Other amenities at The PGA Country Club include a refurbished clubhouse complete with a fine dining room, grill room for quick items including burgers and sandwiches, full-service golf shop and men’s and ladies’ locker rooms. Also included are five HarTru tennis courts, a swimming pool and spa, the site states. Donahue, who didn’t disclose the project’s cost, said members are excited about the October tee time. “The members are dying to get out there,” Donahue said. “They’re very excited about it.”

Inmate labor contracted to work out west Nicole Rodriguez Staff writer

ST. LUCIE WEST — In an effort to eradicate invasive plant species from St. Lucie West, the Services District voted overwhelmingly in a 4-1 decision to approve an agreement that will allow Florida Department of Corrections inmates to complete the task. Historically, district staff has been responsible for the removal of exotic plants from district-owned wetlands, wetland buffers and upland pine preserves. To help with the undertaking, the district has occasionally contracted the work out every two to three years to private contractors, district staffers said. Contract costs for 40 to 60 days of work ranged anywhere from $75,000 to $100,000. Under the parameters of the

contract, a five-man inmate crew and supervising officer would work approximately 250 days a year at a little more than half the amount of the private contractor. The year-long contract is worth $65,122. Pending state approval, work is expected to begin in August, staffers said. “Over time, we’re going to spend about the same amount of dollars, but we’re going to see more of a benefit, because they’re going to clean more preserves,” district manager Dennis Pickle said. Two district employees would be trained in criminal justice standards to assign work and relay safety aspects of using power equipment, the contract states. A vehicle, radio and cell phone will also be provided by the district. Pickle said similar inmate programs are a success in St. Lucie County, Martin County and the

ST. LUCIE COUNTY — It was the hug heard around the world. President Barack Obama came into Big Apple Pizza & Pasta in Fort Pierce during the 2012 campaign, looking for owner Scott Van Duzer. Van Duzer, a big man, embraced the president and lifted him off the ground. The photo and story were carried from California to China. “It wasn’t staged,” Van Duzer said. “I wasn’t in the store. I’ll never forget. It was Sept. 9. He was in Melbourne and we got a call that he would stop by if I would be there. He wanted to thank us for our community service.” Van Duzer rushed back to the store, arriving just before the president. “It was very cool,” Van Duzer said. “The convention was a couple of days earlier. He (came in) and said, ‘Where’s Scott?’ I said, ‘Here I am, sir.’” Then he said, ‘You’re the biggest pizza man I’ve ever seen. Will I get as strong as you if I eat your pizza? ‘I said, ‘You want to see strong…’’’ That’s when he lifted the pres-

ident off the ground. The chief executive took it in stride. “What a great guy,” Van Duzer said. “He’s a caring family man. We were invited to a debate and sat next to the first lady.” Van Duzer was being honored for the work of the Van Duzer Foundation, an organization he founded that helps families in need in St. Lucie County and raises awareness about the need for blood donations. Still, the hug showed him a different side of people. There were bomb threats and hate mail. “I saw the good side and the bad side,” he said. “I was on the Anderson Cooper show and talked about the Foundation. There were 11,000 online donations of $24,000 from all over the world. I’ll take the hate any day. We used that money to help those in St. Lucie County. A lot of the hatred was nationwide. I don’t think it was local.” Van Duzer began in the pizza business in 1983, with a summer job. “I’ve had one job my whole life, with Big Apple Pizza,” he said. “I started out washing dishes and now I’m the owner. It was a cool place to work in the summer. I started in high school. My mom told me if you like what you do,

RANCH from page 6 rated due to the disagreement. “We’re looking forward to meeting with the city staff and we’re hopeful, of course, that we can resolve any issues that we have,” said county attorney Dan McIntyre, who said the county is “just trying to determine what they’re proposing to do with it and what the effect on the county is.” “I think from the county’s perspective, we have a pretty good relationship with the city,” McIntyre said. Interim city manager Jeff Bremer maintains the city has no hidden agenda of turning the land into residential development.

He added no bridges with the county have been burnt. “It’s an issue of disagreement. I mean, are the relations strained? I don’t know,” Bremer said. “I’ve heard that there has been strained relations in the past and we’re certainly not looking forward to embarking on a strained relationship.” The county would like the city to use the parcel under the county’s jurisdiction. McCarty Ranch is not adjacent to Port St. Lucie for a large part of its boundary. It’s only connected to the city by a 650-foot strip of land, county officials said. The city contends since it owns McCarty Ranch, it should be their sole responsibility to control it.

“Our position has been we own it, we’re going to annex it and we’re going to rezone it,” Bremer said. “That makes it easier for us to control the use of the property through our own zoning and our own processes, rather than have to deal with others, like the county, for example.” The city said McCarty Ranch will be a pivotal parcel for the 400,000 customers expected to live in Port St. Lucie by 2060. “It is really to provide water for our residents for the next 50 to 100 years and to provide some solid conservation and recreational usage for the property,” Bremer said. “Those are our two main goals and they remain our goals.” The city’s plans for the property

will also benefit the environment, Bremer said. “This provides us an opportunity to really take water that’s coming from Lake Okeechobee, for example, treat it and use it for future water use,” Bremer said. “It’s almost like a reuse of wasted water.” It also provides an area for new and exciting recreational activities, Bremer said. “If you’ve seen the property, it’s awesome in terms of recreational opportunities,” Bremer said. “It’s part of an old mining operation, so there are large areas of water that can be used for kayaking. I even know a couple who have been out there for fishing and they say the fishing is great.”

Jayce Boyd Series. After losing to the eventual National Champion University of Arizona in the National Semifinal, Boyd had a short and hectic fourday turnaround to report to his first minor league assignment. Without an offseason at his disposal to train for a long season, Boyd was slow out of the gate in his assignment with Class A- Brooklyn. He battled just .239, with five home runs and 19 RBIs in 54 games in a Cyclones uniform. Boyd believes having time and a winter to work on strength training is the best possible explanation behind his first two years as a professional baseball player. “When I went through my season in Brooklyn, I was a little tired and sluggish coming straight out of college,” Boyd said. “It was a long season, but afterwards, I finally had an offseason and a couple of months to hit the weight room and get stronger. I can definitely tell and feel the difference for sure.” Boyd doesn’t expect to be hovering around Ted Williams territory for the remainder of his time with the St. Lucie Mets, but whether he continues his success or not, like many players lucky enough to put on a uniform, he just appreciates the opportunity to reach the baseball mountain top. “Just given the opportunity to play in a professional organization is something I’ll never take for granted, whether I make it out of high A-ball or not,” Boyd said. “It’s just awesome to be a part of this. “It’s an amazing feeling to be chasing this dream and to know that you are getting closer with each step you take.”

cities of Fort Pierce and Stuart. Board Chairman Harvey Cutler said invasive plants, Brazilian pepper trees in particular, have been a thorn in the district’s side for decades. Brazilian pepper trees belong to a vegetation family that includes poison oak and poison ivy. There are over 700,000 acres in Florida infested with the tree, which originates from Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. Brazilian pepper trees produce a dense canopy that shade out all other plants and provides a very poor habitat for native species, eventually damaging or killing them, according to the website of the Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants, an arm of the University of Florida. People sensitive to poison oak and ivy may also be allergic to Brazilian pepper trees and experience respiratory problems when the tree blooms in September, the website states. “I know myself from previous experience that you cannot keep up with these exotics,” Cutler said. “It’s one of my peeves.” With the new contract in place, Cutler said staff can possibly focus their work on other district needs. “That would maybe free up some of our guys to work on the landscaping which they’ve neglected because the exotics get ahead of them all the time.” During the board’s recent meeting, Country Club Estates resident Gregg Ney acknowledged the contract’s benefits, but

voiced some concerns. “My problem is just that if they’re going to be working in our community, that they not come close to our residential areas,” Ney said. “I’m ambivalent, but in general, I think it’s probably a good idea. It’s a cost-saving measure.” The board and district staff assured Ney inmates from Martin Correctional Institution will not perform work near homes. “We were assured that where they would be working would not be in residential areas,” Cutler said. Inmate crews would be prohibited from working inside any H.O.A or within 1,000 feet of any school for the first year of the contract. They may be allowed within H.O.A’s and closer proximity to schools on the second year pending approval from the district, according to the agreement signed July 2. Pickle said violent felons will not participate in the program. “According to what we’re told, these are not hardened criminals. They’re more the DUI cases or the I guess ‘low crime’ cases, as it was explained to me,” he said. The only dissenting vote belonged to board supervisor Sal Mancuso, who sees no reason to cease using district workers or local contractors. “My concern is not who does the work, or who we subcontract to, but we have been doing exotic (plant removal) since 1987,” Mancuso said.

YOUR VOICE NEWS & VIEWS • ST. LUCIE WEST/TRADITION • JULY 12, 2013 • 11 Scott Van Duzer greets President Barack Obama at the podium after announcing him during a campaign stop in Palm Beach County last October. Van Duzer earned some popularity and notoriety for his foundation following a surprise visit by the president to his pizza shop in Fort Pierce last September. Mitch Kloorfain chief photographer

FOUNDATION from page 5 someone needs blood and 44,000 people would have to donate blood to meet the need. “We recognized that there’s a serious problem and we have ‘Be a Hero Day’ to underscore that there’s a crisis all the time. Unless a family member needs it, it’s not at the top of your list. Someone, somewhere does need it. We never want there to be a shortage.” Van Duzer does extensive work with the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County, inviting summer campers to make pizzas. He was that organization’s 2009 Man of the Year. He represented South Florida at the national Jefferson Awards for Community Service and was named Outstanding Small Business Philanthropist by the Association of Fundraising

Professionals. Van Duzer is married to Dawn, a critical care nurse. He has two sons, Scott and Jordan, and a stepson, Joseph. Joseph is still in school, but the older boys work in the store. He plans to keep making pizza and to continue to help county residents in need. “We’ll continue to try to make St. Lucie County better for the less fortunate,” he said. “There’s nothing better than helping others without expecting anything in return. If we work together, we’ll be a lot better as a community and a nation.” Big Apple Pizza is located at 2311 South 35th St., Fort Pierce, across from Indian River State College. Call (772) zz466-8303.

SOLD from page 1 work for a university in North Carolina, Bremer said. It has also had a hand in developing a town in Connecticut, Bremer said. Bremer said the buyer plans to turn the now defunct 115,000-square-foot animation studio into either a furniture manufacturing plant or a culinary office with retail space. A third option is an art museum with revolving exhibits, Bremer said. “He hasn’t divulged all of his interests to us,” Bremer said. “He’s simply demonstrated the wherewithal to purchase the building and have the backing in order to make one of those three areas come to fruition.” Councilman Ron Bowen said since the city will not partner with the new buyer, as it had with Digital Domain, there is no need to know how the building will be used as long as it complies with zoning laws. “It’s not a public-private partnership, so I don’t care what the guy does with the building, as long as it’s not illegal (or) it’s not bringing the moral standards of the city down.” “If he pays $14 million in cash, he could do what he wants to do with the building,” said Bowen, who added, “It’s time to sell the building. It’s time to cut our loss-

“It’s not a public-private partnership, so I don’t care what the guy does with the building, as long as it’s not illegal (or) it’s not bringing the moral standards of the city down.” Ron Bowen PSL City Councilman es short.” Vice mayor Linda Bartz echoed Bowen’s sentiment. “As long as it falls into the basic city criteria, zoning and all of that, they own it and once they own it, they have the ability to do what they want with it,” she said. “It’s a pretty dynamic building and someday they will turn it around and make some really good money on it. In the meantime, they will be paying those taxes.” Last year’s unexpected closing of Tradition Studios was expected to cost the city $3.4 million in annual debt costs. A portion of the first installment was due this fall if the building didn’t sell. The $14

SOLD from page 14 million sale will lower the city’s debt to $1.4 a year, which will be paid annually until 2041, Bremer said. The city expects to receive an estimated $75,000 a year from taxes paid on the building, city attorney Roger Orr said. The rest of the tax dollars will go to the county, Orr said. Should the purchaser file for bankruptcy after closing, it is unclear how or if taxes will be paid on the building. “There are too many variables to answer that question,” Orr said. The $39.9 million building, which opened in January 2012, was constructed with millions in city incentives and promised a thriving economy and 500 jobs by 2014. That pact was broken when Digital Domain filed for bankruptcy in September, laying off more than 300 employees, leaving the city to foot the enormous bill. The property has been appraised for $13.5 million, according to city documents. “We fell for it, we trusted and we did what we had to do back then and now we’re paying for it,” Mayor JoAnn Faiella said. “Are we going to do the same thing? Absolutely not.” Since the building went on the market in December, the city has

received six to seven offers, but none panned out, Bremer said. “It’s a clean sale. It is perhaps and by far the best of all of the proposals that have been received and reviewed with the help of the (Economic Development Council),” Bremer said. “This one doesn’t require us to come forward as a joint partnership. This doesn’t require us to (get into) leasing the facility ... it presents us with what could be the best of the worst.” Berger contended the deal needs more thought, especially during a time when the market is mending. She suggested possibly retaining the building for future city use. “I’m just not quite sure what the rush is to move forward so fast in a changing market,” Berger said. “Based on the information we’re receiving, the market is changing in a positive direction.” “Additionally, why would we do that with risk of not knowing exactly who these partners are that are moving in?” Councilwoman Shannon Martin said the time to sell is now. “Councilman Bowen is correct. We’re not going to get the return on the investment,” Martin said. “The market is not going to come back to where this property is worth the construction cost. It probably won’t happen for many, many years.”

the talons of the Pure Ones.

Irish music enlivens a hot summer evening Shelley Koppel Staff writer

skoppel@YourVoiceWeekly.com

TREASURE COAST — The Rowdy Micks hope to have you dancing in the aisles. The band, which plays traditional Celtic music, will appear at the Blake Library on July 25, as part of the inaugural Sounds of Summer Series. The band, with some changes, has been together since 2002.

ROWDY from page 19 was blind and managed to travel around. If he was captivated by you, he wrote a song about you.” The group will play traditional songs such as “Danny Boy,” and songs like “When Irish Eyes are Smiling” and “Take Me Home Again, Kathleen.” “Mick is the most Irish of us,” Porter-Zogran said. “He refers to them as New Irish-American tunes. They were written in America for people remembering the homeland. A lot of people, especially the World War II generation, like to hear these kinds of songs.” For Porter-Zogran and her colleagues, the band has become more than a group of musicians. “We all have full-time jobs, except for John, who is a retired firefighter. It’s a hobby for all of us. We love it so much and we have become great friends. Irish music is all we’ve ever played together. It’s been my focus since I left college. “It was an opportunity to play with a contradance band, which is traditional English dancing, to Celtic music, similar to square dancing. I didn’t know the wealth of material out there. People know the same songs. You can sit in with a group of strangers and you all know it. We all hope to go

to Ireland together and play in the pubs.” Although many of the songs are audience favorites, the group doesn’t stand pat. “We’re always trying to add new material,” Porter-Zogran said. “We have an extensive set list to keep it fresh. (The show) is upbeat, with some storytelling, too. Mick is quite a storyteller, in the true Irish sense of the word. Hopefully, people will get up and dance.” The Rowdy Micks play at Shindigs in Port St. Lucie several Sundays a month and are also available for private parties and weddings. “A couple had a blind date at Shindigs and they had us play at their reception,” Porter-Zogran said. “John played at his own daughter’s wedding.” The Rowdy Micks appear at the Blake Library, 2351 S.E. Monterey Road, Stuart, July 25 at 6 p.m., as part of the library’s Sounds of Summer Music Series. The concert is free and tickets are not required. For more information, call (772) 221-1403 or visit the website, www.library.martinfl. us. The Rowdy Micks appear at Shindigs Irish Pub, 464 S.W. Port St. Lucie Blvd., several Sundays a month.

Palm City Grill II a dining delight Staff writer

skoppel@YourVoiceWeekly.com

ST. LUCIE WEST – When you dine at Palm City Grill II in St. Lucie West, it’s a good idea to pace yourself. If you don’t, there’s a good chance you’ll fill up on the delicious home-baked bread, served with a dipping sauce of melted butter and garlic. It would be a shame to do that, because you would miss out on some wonderful food. My dining companion and I started off with an appetizer of Portobello mushrooms, stacked tall with eggplant Parmesan and layered with chunky marinara sauce and mozzarella and ricotta cheese. A balsamic glace was drizzled over it. It looked like a

dessert and was enough for a meal. Other appetizers include Palm City escargot, calamari chipotle, lemon garlic mussels and jumbo coconut shrimp. Appetizers range in price from $5.95-$12.95. Soup, including the special New England clam chowder, is $2.50 a cup and $3.75 a bowl. We each had a house salad that was crisp and fresh. All of the dressings are homemade; I had vinaigrette and my friend had the house dressing, a dill ranch. She said it was light and zesty, with a little tang. One of the most popular entrees at the restaurant is the horseradish crusted grouper, but my friend and I opted to eat from the Sunset Specials menu, available

GRILL from page 23 from 4-5:30 p.m. Two dinners, with bread, soup or salad, potato or vegetables and beverage, are $22.95. I had pan-seared salmon, served with a side of dill, and fresh vegetables. My friend had baked stuffed shrimp with vegetables. The presentation was lovely. The vegetables, obtained locally, were fresh and steamed. Carrots, squash and onions were a colorful foil for the pink salmon, cooked just right. It’s very easy to overcook salmon, but this was perfect. My friend said that the stuffed shrimp was also perfect. Served in

a casserole dish, the shrimp were stuffed with a seafood stuffing and cream sauce that included breadcrumbs and crackers, crab and butter. It was as rich as it sounds. Other entrees on the Sunset Specials menu include eggplant Parmigian, coconut shrimp, sirloin steak and stuffed basa. Justin Blodgett is the general manager of the restaurant, which is part of the Prawnbroker Group that owns five restaurants on the east coast of Florida and several more on the west coast.

While the restaurant is a success, Blodgett is not content to stand pat. The restaurant has begun serving prime ribs for $16.95 on Saturday night and is inaugurating Friday night steamed Maine lobster at $17.95. While they keep signature entrees like the grouper and appetizers like Palm City escargot, they are not afraid to add something new and see how the diners receive it. My friend and I did not have wine or beer, but the restaurant has a nice wine list and serves a variety of draft beers. We also did not have room for dessert, but could have chosen from key lime pie, chocolate peanut butter pie, chocolate cake, Florida orange sunshine cake and heated brownies

a la mode. I have no doubt each would have been delicious. On its website, the restaurant says “We serve it fresh or we don’t serve it at all.” That was certainly our experience. I hope to have the opportunity to dine there again and sample something else. For more information about the Palm City Grill II, visit www.prawnwbroker.com or call (772) 3438180. Palm City Grill II is located at 1347 St. Lucie West Blvd. Hours are Sunday-Thursday 4-10 p.m. and Friday-Saturday 4-11 p.m. Daily Happy Hour is from 4-6 p.m. Sunset Specials are served from 4-5:30 p.m. Reservations are accepted for parties of six or more.
