PORT ST. LUCIE – Mike Sancho, new chief executive officer of the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County, has spent more than 25 years helping young people. Sancho, who learned to play tennis while growing up in upstate New York, began his career as a director of the Ashe/Bollettieri Cities’ Tennis Program. The organization was founded by tennis great Arthur Ashe and

famed tennis instructor Nick Bollettieri to bring the sport to inner city kids. “The mayor of Newark (New Jersey) asked us to Mike Sancho send a group of tennis pros to Newark and said they would fund the project,” Sancho said. “We came to Newark and it was

TRADITION — It seems that a months-long reign of terror over the Townpark at Tradition community by wild hogs has been abolished. Feral, or wild hogs, weighing in at more than 300 pounds, wreaked havoc on residential properties since January, but ceased abruptly in June after news reports by Your Voice News & Views and other media outlets surfaced exposing the reoccurring problem, resident George Rudolph said. Residents believed sounders of wild hogs were originating from an undeveloped parcel of land just beyond their backyards and demanded the large tract be enclosed. After months of complaining, Rudolph is glad The Minto Group, the subdivision’s developer, acted swiftly to mend the issue. “Since then, Minto has been working on a fence. It’s a galvanized metal fence with wooden posts,” said the Crestwood Circle resident. Rudolph said he was told steel reinforcements a foot underground should keep the hogs from digging free. Rudolph said he expects the last tract of the fence to be erected once flooding from recent rain storms drains.

Pastor W. R. Roundtree III makes a statement during a rally seeking justice following the verdict in the murder trial against George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin last year.

In wake of Zimmerman verdict, rally calls for repeal of state self-defense law Nicole Rodriguez Staff writer

nrodriguez@YourVoiceWeekly.com

ST. LUCIE COUNTY — Protestors peacefully channeled their anger and outrage outside of a Fort Pierce federal courthouse last week at George Zimmerman’s recent acquittal in last year’s shooting death of unarmed Sanford teen Trayvon Martin. They called for a repeal of the state’s “Stand Your Ground” law, which came under fire during the course of the trial. The Fort Pierce gathering was one of at least 100 others of its kind across the nation on July 20

organized by the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network. The Rev. William F. Richardson III of Grace Baptist Church in Port St. Lucie led the local gathering, which attracted a crowd of close to 200. “It’s not just about Trayvon Martin. We respect what the jurors have said, but more importantly at this point, it’s to make change, change laws and legislation,” Richardson said. The “Stand Your Ground” law allows people to use deadly force to protect themselves, often without any compulsion to retreat.

SANCHO from page 1 a public-private partnership. We used city parks and when it got too cold, we went inside, sometimes to Boys & Girls Clubs. The kids loved it. We had some very talented kids that I still mentor. They have their own kids, but I taught them to play tennis when they were 8.” The program quickly became about more than tennis. “We helped kids with homework on the tennis court while they were waiting,” Sancho said. “We had rap sessions where we’d talk and listen. When Arthur Ashe announced he had AIDS, we talked about it.” Sancho eventually went to work for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Newark as a unit director and then director of technology and vice president of program services. As he developed a technology program to bring computers to the youngsters in the program, he traveled the country, developing similar initiatives for Boys & Girls Clubs of America. He saw clubs in inner cities but also in rural areas. Sancho and his wife planned to move to Florida when she retired after 25 years with the Newark school system, but her parents needed assistance sooner than that. When a spot opened at the Martin County Boys & Girls

Clubs in 2010, Sancho applied for the job as chief operating officer. In Martin County, he began several initiatives. “There was a teen program, but it was not the focus of the organization,” Sancho said. “If you want to impact teens, you have to have a focused staffed dedicated to working with teens. The training of the staff is different. I said, ‘Let’s take the teen program to the next level.’” Sancho also started some academic projects, focusing on literacy. He and others spent more than 1,000 hours researching literacy programs. They spearheaded a program that uses teachers in a non-school environment. “I think it will change the game on how organizations teach literacy,” he said. “It’s fun, but it’s using experts.” Sancho also challenged his staff to reach and serve more kids. “The average daily attendance from 2011-2012 increased 19 percent,” he said. “We had a 29 percent increase in members. It was a very intentional focus on better programming and safer clubs. “We have a well-organized child safety program with good supervision and programs that are well-structured and organized. Kids vote with their feet. A kid comes because a friend goes

We can present positive alternatives to kids and get positive role models in their lives. We can connect kids and families to services. We will touch all the kids we can. Mike Sancho, CEO Boys & Girls Club of St. Lucie County or a parent makes them. They keep coming back because of the staff.” Sancho assumed his new post on June 17 and he has been assessing and evaluating everything from programs to scheduling, training and safety. He has also been searching for a chief operating officer to help the organization that has four club sites and 13 school-based sites, as well 125 as employees. An announcement of that appointment is expected soon. Sancho is examining every aspect of the organization and meeting with board and community members. He knows that youth violence is a problem in the county and he said that a robust Boys & Girls Clubs program can help. “It starts with a simple premise, that kids and young people

need an outlet,” he said. “We are focusing on what we can do. We can present positive alternatives to kids and get positive role models in their lives. We can connect kids and families to services. We will touch all the kids we can. “Kids join a gang because someone makes them feel wanted. (We can) catch them before and make them feel wanted. We can partner with Big Brothers and Big Sisters to get mentors, with Workforce Solutions for jobs, with sports. If we get them connected to their interest, doing that gets more and more kids off the streets. A lot of kids we deal with, no one holds them accountable or sets high expectations.” For more information about Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County, visit the website, www. bgcofslc.org.

Come one, come all to help with school supply drive FOR YOUR VOICE NEWS & VIEWS

ST. LUCIE COUNTY — School supplies for children in need will be sorted and packed at Forest Grove Middle School on Saturday, July 27, Wednesday, July 31, and Saturday, Aug. 3. This is the last phase of a project that will provide 4,000 school children in St. Lucie County with the supplies they need to succeed in school. Started in 1997, School Supplies for Students has provided more than 47,000 packages of supplies at the beginning of the school year in August. All St. Lucie County Schools are recipients of the supplies in addition to several nonprofit agencies that serve children and their families. “Even small children can walk through the assembly line with the help of an adult and fill a backpack with supplies,” said Cris Adams, the lead on this proj-

ect. “This is a great opportunity for community groups and individuals to give back by volunteering their time.” Supplies are donated by businesses, community organizations and individuals. Bulk supplies are also purchased with financial donations. Each backpack is filled with age and grade appropriate supplies that include crayons for kindergarteners and pens and composition books for older children. County schools and organizations will pick up their assigned backpacks and supplies once the sorting and packing is completed and they are responsible for distribution to children they serve. For more information on the School Supplies for Students and to volunteer for sorting and packing, please call (772) 464-5300 or visit our website www.unitedwayslc.org and our Facebook page www.facebook.com/unitedwayslc.

RALLY from page 3 Although Zimmeman didn’t use the law as part of his defense, the community is still calling for its elimination. “‘Stand Your Ground’ gives people greater license to act on feelings they already have,” protestor Allen Rosskopf of White City said. Rosskopf believes loopholes in Florida law cleared the way for an acquittal. “I think the way the law was written, maybe he was not legally guilty, but I also think he was guilty as hell and I think we all know that,” Rosskopf said. U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Jupiter, said “Stand Your Ground” should be reviewed by state lawmakers. “I do think ‘Stand Your Ground’ needs to be re-examined,” Murphy said. Democratic State Rep. Larry Lee Jr., a PGA Village resident, said he plans to call for the law’s review. “‘Stand Your Ground’ should be reviewed,” Lee said. “I will be one of the legislators calling for a review.” Lee’s Republican counterpart Rep. Gayle Harrell, R-Stuart said the law is clear cut. “I have no interest whatsoever in repealing ‘Stand Your Ground.’ The legislation is very carefully crafted,” Harrell said. “The George Zimmerman case was not about ‘Stand Your Ground.’” “I think people have the right to protect themselves if they are threatened, they have to have the ability to be able to stand

their ground and not have the duty to retreat, now they don’t have the ability to pursue,” Harrell said. “They do not have the duty to retreat. There’s a difference.” Demonstrators also called for racial tolerance. “We have to continue the conversation,” Richardson said. “There’s something wrong. We don’t understand each other.” Port St. Lucie resident Lisa McCrum said that it’s shameful individuals from different ethnic makeups can’t join together to embrace one another. “I don’t see what the color of skin has to do with anything. We come from different cultures, we come from different traditions and we should be sharing those,” said McCrum, who has a biracial son and grandson. “How wonderful to share those with each other.” “But to judge another person just because of the tradition they come from or the way they look, this is what it leads to.” “(This) young man did nothing. He did nothing wrong. He had every right to be where he was,” McCrum added. “We shouldn’t even be having this conversation. He shouldn’t be dead. It’s a great tragedy.” On July 13, a jury of six women in Sanford found neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman not guilty of second-degree murder in the 2012 killing. Zimmerman, a Hispanic, said he fired his gun in self-defense after Martin attacked him. The teen was carrying canned iced tea and a bag of candy at the time of his death.

pmccallister@YourVoiceWeekly.com

TREASURE COAST — Steve Friend has advice to those considering new cars. “I think there’s never been a better time,” the director of operations at Treasure Coast Lexus and Treasure Coast Toyota-Scion said. “The interest rates and lease rates have never been better.” Additionally, he said used cars are fetching good prices. “I think it’s definitely a buyer’s market right now,” he said. Treasure Coast’s Toyota-Scion showroom is at 5101 S.E. Federal Highway, Stuart. The Lexus showroom is at 5121 South U.S. Highway 1, Fort Pierce. Economic numbers strongly back Friend’s words. The state’s employment numbers are steadily

improving, and consumer activity is increasing. Statewide employment has been consistently improving for about the last 30 months. The Treasure Coast is keeping a strong pace with the improvements. For example, the Port St. Lucie Metropolitan Statistical Area, which includes St. Lucie and Martin counties, has seen a 3.9 percent improvement in its employment numbers from June of 2011 to last month. At the same time, the Federal Reserve has kept its interest rates low, meaning consumers are getting good rates these days. The result is higher consumer confidence; people are buying. Those consumers are increasingly equipped with a tool to find exactly what they’re looking for — smart phones and other portable

sive hogs. As long as the fence is constructed properly, it should do the trick, Gioeli said. “Having it go a foot underground would be fine. They just have to make sure it’s sturdy,” he said. “Even if it’s not dug down into the ground, they can maybe use steel guards down at the bottom to make sure the hogs are not going to be able to pound through it.” “These are large animals. I’ve seen them rub up against fullgrown pine trees and they’ve just fallen down from being abused by feral hogs,” Gioeli said. Before the fence, neighbors were scared to venture outside after dark, Rudolph said. The attacks on property, totaling thousands of dollars in damages, were a nightly occurrence, Rudolph said. “I’m delighted. We don’t worry anymore,” Rudolph said. He added neighbors can once again take their small dogs out for evening walks without fearing an attack. “We wish they would have done this sooner,” Rudolph said. “It would have saved ourselves $3,000 on a fence we don’t want.” Gioeli cautions feral hogs are extremely aggressive and very destructive on land, especially on moist ground where they wallow and turn up the ground. They also sharpen their tusks on vegetation, eventually damaging or killing the vegetation. They are also opportunistic omnivores that will eat plants and mammals including small pets if given the chance, he added. “People need to be aware, that in their minds, feral hogs are at the top of the food chain,” Gioeli said. “Usually they look at people as being one notch above them, but I’ve been around some feral hogs that don’t see it that way.” Feral hogs are found in every county in Florida and in at least 35 states and Canadian provinces. Southeast Florida’s feral hog population is second only to Texas and is estimated to have more than 500,000. They can cause

damage by rubbing or tusking small trees and by rooting up native vegetation. Gioeli believes the hogs were introduced as a food source to Florida in the late 1500’s by Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon through Charlotte County on the state’s west coast. Complete species eradication is unlikely, but population management is possible, Gioeli said. “The feral hogs have a reproductive rate that is just astronomical,” Gioeli said. “A female feral hog can give birth within a year of herself being born.” One female can produce two litters of piglets per year averaging five to seven piglets per litter. Some litters can include up to 16 piglets in good conditions. Rapid reproduction, along with a lack of predators, adaptability and intelligence makes feral hogs difficult to manage, Gioeli said. “Feral hogs are incredibly intelligent, so a lot of the management techniques that people will use, feral hogs wise up to it fairly quickly,” Gioeli said, referring to ineffective single box traps. “Somehow the message is communicated throughout the rest of the community of feral hogs to avoid that location. So they wise up to it almost immediately.” Traditional hunting practices are diminishing because of the wariness of using firearms so closely to residential neighborhoods, but permits may still be available though some municipality police departments. If wild hogs are hunted during the day by dogs, archery and firearms, they tend to only come out at night, presenting a new problem, Gioeli said. The most effective trapping method is a metal corral trap, Gioeli said. Some can measure 20 feet by 20 feet or larger and residents can make them at home. These traps contain a oneway door. The trap should be pre-baited with fermenting corn and sugar in a bucket, which should be dug into the ground. Gioeli recommends leaving the

Friend said autotrader.com reports that the average car buyer now spends almost 12 hours online evaluating everything from car models to dealership reputations before stepping foot in showrooms. This has been a boon for Treasure Coast Toyota-Scion and Lexus. “We have the largest share of the luxury market on the Treasure Coast,” Friend said. The reason is simple, he said. Consumers are electronically connected to all the information needed to select cars, and dealerships such as Treasure Coast Lexus and Toyota-Scion that emphasize relationships before, during and after sales are getting their business. Much of the reason for that is because folks have a chance to see what others say about businesses with a growing

After a certain level of comfort is reached, close the door and watch the hogs funnel in, one after another with no way to escape. The larger the trap, the more hogs that will be caught, Gioeli said. Two options remain after capture. “It’s perfectly legal for people to go and humanely kill feral hogs for consumption purposes and things like that,” Gioeli said. The second is obtaining a permit from the Florida Department of Agriculture to handle the rest.

Port St. Lucie Police arrested rookie Gulf Coast Mets player, Alex Machillanda Romero, 21, of St. Lucie West, the night of July 21 for felony shoplifting, resisting a merchant, battery and resisting an officer without violence. A loss prevention officer for Bealls Department Store located at 1713 N.W. St. Lucie West Blvd. told police that he observed Romero, who was carrying a backpack, selecting clothing from the rack and removing the price tags. Romero was seen taking pictures of the merchandise and it appeared he was sending the photos via his cell phone. Loss prevention told police that Romero then entered the dressing room with the items. Romero was suspected to have concealed the clothes inside the back pack he was carrying. Romero exited the store without purchasing the merchandise, which totaled $461.97. When the loss prevention officer attempted to stop Romero for not paying for the clothes, Romero punched the loss prevention officer and took him to the ground, slamming his head on the concrete. Romero then fled on foot and was witnessed by responding officers

While police were arresting Romero, he resisted by yelling and pulling away from the officers. The stolen property was recovered by police inside the backpack Romero was carrying. The property was returned to the store and Romero was transported to the St. Lucie County Jail for booking. As of press time, Romero remained in a St. Lucie County jail pending $40,000 bail.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY — Most teens would admit that they worry about being popular, but for today’s teens the pressure to fit in is just the tip of the iceberg. Issues like drugs, violence, alco-

hol and being sexually active all play a part in the pressures teens face. Unfortunately, most parents would admit that they are fearful about discussing those topics

with their teenagers. And often, what teens need most to battle those pressures is honest, open communication with their parents. That’s where Parent Teen Community Connection can help.   “The Parent Teen Community Connection program forces parents to address serious issues that are affecting teens today. For many families and cultures, it’s taboo to talk about sex,” said Jose Tabar, a father of four whose two teenage daughters are enrolled in the program. “It’s better for parents to be open and talk about the issues their kids are facing. There is just too much misinformation and mixed messages in the world for kids to sort through on their own to make smart decisions.”   Parent Teen Community Connection is a healthy decision making and teen pregnancy prevention program providing education to teens and their parents.  The program also provides community service learning projects through youth leadership and community partnerships. The free small group educational workshops are interactive and fun featuring incentives and prizes to increase enthusiasm and engagement. Teens who complete all of the workshops have an opportunity to work on social media proj-

ects and earn community service hours. The funding to support the Parent Teen Community Connection program is provided by the Children’s Services Council of St. Lucie County. “Research tells us that teens want their primary educators regarding healthy decision making to be their parents,” says Sean Boyle, executive director of the Children’s Services Council. “We saw the need for a program like this and have been encouraged with the results this program is having on our local families.”   Parent Teen Community Connection program facilitator Hector Ramirez first spoke to Jose and his wife, Lila, about the program in November. Soon after, Karina and Sara signed up.  “Some of the topics were a little worrisome,” Lila said. “But these workshops don’t just focus on sex and pregnancy. The group also talks about college, scholarships and volunteering.” “This is a great program for teens that are struggling to deal with a variety of issues in their lives,” Karina said. “You can come to Parent Teen Community Connection, talk to people about what is going on in your life and get the help you need. The program also teaches valuable skills, and you get to meet new people.”

“It’s good for kids to have other people to talk to besides their parents,” expressed Lila. “Not all kids have parents they can talk to about anything, and it’s important to have an adult you can speak to freely. Some topics can be uncomfortable to talk about, but they are important, and Parent Teen Community Connection is a safe, positive place to do this.”   Sara and Karina have reaped the benefits of the Parent Teen Community Connection program. Not only have they gained confidence in themselves, they are also better communicators. Many kids enter the program with little to no self-esteem, often whispering when they talk. As they continue to participate in workshops, these quiet kids blossom into confident teens learning valuable leadership and

If they are not learning from you, they will learn from someone else. Sign up for the program. It’s a great way to have an honest conversation where both the parent and child get to listen and talk.” For more information, call (772) 408-1100.

PORT ST. LUCIE — It’s the middle of summer in Florida and a lot of the entertainment venues are closed until the season begins. For those of us who remain all year long, and there are more of us

each year, August means finding ways to entertain yourself and perhaps kids or grandkids. There are some classes and groups that meet in August. You can make new friends and learn a new skill while having fun. The Port St. Lucie Community Center, located at 2195 S.E. Airoso Blvd., has a variety of dance classes to help you keep fit while

avoiding the hot sun. George and Judy Go teach ballroom dancing, and for August, the dance is the tango. Classes will be held on Aug. 5, 12 and 19 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. The cost is $30 for the three sessions or $12 as a drop-in. Having a partner is not required. The online registration code is 134113. Setareh has been teaching belly

dancing for many years and it’s not just for the ladies. In fact, she welcomes students of both genders who are 12 and older. The class is held on Mondays from 7:30-8:30 p.m. “Belly dancing is the oldest dance in the world,” she said. “It empowers women and gives them confi-

dence. It’s for anybody. Dancers should wear comfortable clothing such as yoga pants. You don’t have to show your midriff. “Wear something you’re comfortable in that is just below the navel, so that I can see the body mechanics. Wear a tank top and you can be barefoot or wear socks or soft ballet slippers. A sash or hip shawl is good to tie around the hips to better see the movements.” The class costs $35 for the month and $10 a class for dropins. The online registration code is 114113. For those seeking to kick up their heels, Kathy Parker offers country line mix dance classes. The music is both country and non-country. Beginner classes are offered on Monday and Wednesday and beginner and intermediate combined classes are offered on Wednesday and Thursday. For a compete list of classes and times, call (772) 878-2277. Legacy dance classes for kids will be offered at the Community Center under the direction of Dawn Nabors. Saturday from 11:30 a.m.-12: 30 p.m., junior hip hop classes for kids 7-12 are scheduled. Older kids 13-18 can enjoy jazz fusion on Saturday from 12:30-1:30 p.m. For more information, contact Dawn Nabors at (561) 329-6289. If dancing is not your thing,

She’s originally from Ireland and they had to learn to knit and crochet. She’s not well and we miss her, but several others have taken up her mantle. We share patterns and websites we’ve found.” While knitting and crocheting are the pursuits, they’re not the only activity that takes place. “It’s a very social group,” Perez said. “It’s a support group, too.

ST. LUCIE WEST — Lola’s Seafood has only graced St. Lucie West for less than year, but it already has a fierce following. One bite of any of the eatery’s dishes and the reason becomes rapidly apparent. Lola’s part-owner, Lise Uffer, who runs the restaurant with her

husband Bernard, said the St. Lucie West location is the couple’s third to its Stuart and Palm Beach Gardens fronts. The newest location has become a destination for some northern Treasure Coast faithfuls, who are now spared a greater trek, Uffer said. “We have people (driving) two hours to come over here,” Uffer

LOLA from page 25 said. “They were happy we opened here because before they had to go to Stuart.” “It’s very refreshing to see that. And we have a lot of repeat customers, which is really nice.” Many travel from Okeechobee, Sebastian and Vero Beach to feast on Uffer’s most popular dishes, including her favorite blackened shrimp tacos. Uffer also sells wine and beer. They come topped with cabbage, red onions and peppers, cheese, sour cream and bam bam sauce, a mayo-based sauce with just the right amount of spice. The dish also comes with fresh coleslaw and the restaurant’s unique bottleneck fries, which are hand-battered in beer. “It’s different textures, different flavors,” she said. “It’s yummy. It’s an explosion of flavors.” Another great entrée with an equally stellar presentation is the pan-seared grouper Francaise with French green beans, artichokes and tomatoes served over a bed of rice. Cranberries with freshly squeezed lemons gives the dish a tart, fruity taste. A must-try is the eatery’s sea food sampler with breaded and fried belly clams, clam strips and

cod atop beer-battered bottleneck fries. Nowhere but New England will you find cod this fresh. A perfect side dish or appetizer is the conch fritters, breaded and fried to perfection, with hardly any fillers like celery or carrots. A staple starter on the menu is Lola’s salad, a mixture of baby greens tossed in an orange basil vinaigrette topped with Italian tomatoes, corn salsa, sweet dried cranberries, crispy noodles and feta cheese. The description speaks for itself. A dining experience at Lola’s wouldn’t be complete without a dessert order of the restaurant’s signature beignets. The mouthwatering pieces of freshly fried dough resemble doughnut holes and are served hot and sprinkled with confectioner’s sugar. Drizzle some of Lola’s chocolate hazelnut glaze to top off the flavor. Lola’s Seafood Eatery is located at 962 St. Lucie West Blvd., St. Lucie West. To place a to-go order, call (772) 871-5533.

Finish off your meal at Lola’s Seafood in St. Lucie West with an order of authentic, warm beignets with drizzled chocolate. Lola’s is located in the Village Shoppes Plaza on St. Lucie West Boulevard.
