TORINO — Residents who staunchly oppose a drug treatment center in their neighborhood won the initial battle against the facility’s developers on Sept. 3 when the city’s planning and zoning board opposed the detoxification portion of the project. After hearing more than 40 residents passionately plead their case countering the facility, citing a potential for increased crime and decreased property values, the board voted 5-2 against granting a special exception recommending the detox cen-

OVER 200 MEDICATION CAN CAUSE HEARING LOSS

ARE YOU TAKING ONE OF THEM? Approximately 200 prescription and over-the-counter medications are known to be ototoxic — which, quite literally, means “poisonous to the ears.”

Be informed before taking medications

Symptoms of ototoxicity

Drugs considered ototoxic have the potential to damage the inner ear or cause vestibular dysfunction, which could result in: • Hearing loss • Tinnitus • Balance disorders While many of the ototoxic effects are temporary and go away once a medication is stopped, some can be long term or permanent. Even medications taken as a child could be the cause of hearing loss today.

If you’re taking a known or suspected ototoxic drug and begin to notice any of the following symptoms, consult with your healthcare professional right away. • Mild tinnitus or ringing in the ears • Noticeable hearing loss, especially high-frequency hearing loss • Issues with balance

What can you do?

Unfortunately, there is no “one size fits all” solution to preventing ototoxic-related hearing What medications are ototoxic? loss. However, depending on Time, probable connection and scientific studies are required to determine a drug’s ototoxic capabilities. There- each individual’s situation, certain recommenfore, it’s difficult to make a precise list, especially with new dations can be followed: medications. Many drugs have been tested, and the list of • Before treating serious illnesses or medical conditions with ototoxic drugs, discuss known ototoxic drugs includes: the risks vs. benefits with your healthcare team • Aspirin • Follow medication instructions carefully • Quinine • Avoid taking multiple ototoxic drugs simultane• Loop diuretics (or “water pills”) ously (like aspirin and loop diuretics) • Certain antibiotics • When around environmental chemicals, • Some anticancer drugs ensure proper ventilation and minimize usage/ • Some anesthetics exposure • Environmental chemicals like carbon monoxide, hexane and mercury

Get a hearing screening

Most importantly, before receiving treatment for any condition that involves known or suspected ototoxic drugs (both prescribed or over-the-counter), you should get a hearing screening taken by a hearing professional.

Listen for any changes

A pre-treatment hearing screening will set a baseline for your hearing that can be used to measure against during the course of your treatment. Then, regular hearing tests throughout treatment can help detect any changes. These could be shared with your healthcare professional. I’m so very happy, I just cannot believe the difference Mutter’s Hearing Center made in my life!

Entomologist seeks safe ways to get the bugs out Shelley Koppel Staff writer

skoppel@YourVoiceWeekly.com

ST. LUCIE WEST — Ronald Cave went into college knowing that he wanted to study insects. “I was unusual,” he said. “I went into college as an entomology major. I got into it in 4-H at (age) 11. I had parental support and a summer job at an entomology lab.” Cave received a bachelor of science in entomology from the University of California-Davis, a master’s degree from the University of California-Berkeley, and a doctoral degree from Auburn University. Now at the University of Florida, he has served for 11 years as one of two research professors for the university’s Norman C. Hayslip Biological Control Research and Containment Laboratory in Fort Pierce. There, scientists do leading-edge research in the use of biological control agents, or insects, for effective and sustainable pest control. Cave was recently promoted to full professor. He spoke about the challenges of controlling pests while minimizing the use of pesticides.

Photo courtesy of the University of Florida Ronald Cave, who holds a doctoral degree in entomology, was recently promoted to professor at the university’s Norman C. Hayslip Biological Control Research and Containment Laboratory, located at the Indian River Research and Education Center in Fort Pierce. Cave has several species of insects named after him and his work was featured in National Geographic magazine. The researcher said that the idea of using insects to control other insects is not a new one. In the third century, the Chinese sold ants nests to citrus growers. “It’s the idea of using natural enemies, good bugs, to fight bad bugs,” he said. “In 1888, in

Australia, the citrus industry was saved by bringing in the parasitic fly and predatory lady beetle.” In time, pesticides became a widely-used method of pest control. “At that time, there was no broad knowledge of the conse-

quences,” Cave said. “Some were aware and not listened to. Rachel Carson’s book, ‘Silent Spring,’ awoke the public and the government. Pesticides can be very useful but they can’t be the sole

TRADITION — Residents of TownPark at Tradition who petitioned the county to spray the community to rid it of pesky mosquitos will soon get to vote on the issue. On Oct. 9, the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections will mail ballots to the community’s 526 registered voters, supervisor Gertrude Walker said. The referendum’s ballot will ask residents if they’d like to be included in the county’s Mosquito Control and Coastal Management Services district. A majority vote — or 50 percent of the vote plus one — will rule. Ballots must be returned by Oct. 29 at 7 p.m., the actual day of the election. Votes will be counted that night. Voters can mail the ballot back or return it to the Fort Pierce

office in person, Walker said. Walker is urging residents to update their information with her office before she mails the ballots. “The ballot will not be forwarded if they’re away on vacation,” Walker said. “The post office cannot forward an actual ballot.” Out of town registered voters can vote from their current location if they update their information. Residents have until Sept. 30 to register to vote, Walker said. To participate in the weekly spraying, it will cost residents approximately 40 cents per $1,000 of their property value next year, Mosquito Control director Jim David said. The county recently received a petition from TownPark residents asking to join the district. It had more than 200 signatures, David said. The St. Lucie County Board of County Commissioners ap-

DETOX from page 1 ter. Board members Ken Martin and Christine Skurka had the minority vote. Not a single resident spoke in favor of the project during the meeting, which lasted more than four hours at City Hall. “The Torino area is a family-friendly residential area and it should stay that way,” Enrique Crespo said. “There are many, many other areas that have plenty of available lots and space to accommodate this type of facility in size and scope.” Crespo, along with dozens of his neighbors, fear addicts will leave the facility early and commit crimes in the area. “I respect and applaud their choosing a path to sobriety, but am concerned that sadly, many will not be reaching their goals and they will be getting out into our neighborhoods,” Crespo told the board. During the meeting, Port St. Lucie Police Chief John Bolduc said crime surrounding two other detox facilities near homes have not been a problem. He did say, however, that officers have responded to calls from the facilities for medical emergencies in the centers. The founder of New Life Addiction Treatment Center, which is located in Port St. Lucie, wants to build a facility with two buildings on a 3.93-acre property he owns on the northeast corner of Northwest East Torino Parkway and Zenith Drive. New Life currently has six sober homes in the city. The proposed complex is to include a 30-bed detox and a rehabilitation center. The first

phase would be a 9,900-squarefoot, one-story building with 30 beds, where patients would stay five to seven days to detox from drugs, planners representing New Life Center said. The second phase was to be a 20,500-squarefoot, two-story structure where 80 patients would go once they complete detoxification. That part of the plan was changed in recent weeks to appease residents, project representatives said. It is now planned to be a single-story 14,000 square feet, 40-bed facility. Group or sober homes do not need approval from the planning and zoning board. But, detox and convalescent homes, which administer medication, do. “Port St. Lucie deserves a stateof-the-art facility. It deserves a facility we can all be proud of,” the center’s planner Brad Currie said to loud scoffs from the audience and a bang of the gavel from the board’s vice chair. An issue residents highlighted was the validity of the property deed. A special warranty deed in 1987 states “the premises shall be used for the sole purpose of church use.” The stipulation was to remain in place for 20 years. An Evangelical Lutheran church owned the land at the time. In 1994, the deed was transferred to different owners and included the same language. The city’s assistant attorney Pam Booker said the inclusion of the 20-year restriction in the 1994 deed was to notify the purchaser that the restriction was in place from 1987. Residents say the restriction was reinstated for another 20 years from 1994 to 2014. Residents are responsible for consulting an attorney to “determine whether the

Mitch Kloorfain/chief photographer Brad Currie, planner for New Life Center lobbied for approval of the Port St. Lucie Planning and Zoning Board during a hearing Tuesday, Sept. 3 at the Port St. Lucie City Council chambers. The Port St. Lucie City Council has the final say on Sept. 23. “The Torino area is a family-friendly residential area and it should stay that way. There are many, many other areas that have plenty of available lots and space to accommodate this type of facility in size and scope.” Enrique Crespo Torino resident deed restriction is still in place,” because the city doesn’t participate in deed disputes, Booker said. Martin called every testimony discriminatory because recovering drug and alcohol addicts are considered disabled under the Americans with Disabilities Act and are protected under the Fair Housing Act. That means there is little a local government can do to stop a sober or group home from opening in a residential area. It also gives municipalities little recourse to deny a detox treatment center on an institutionally zoned lot without being sued. Outraged residents shouted

during the meeting, some marching out after Martin’s declaration. “You sit there all smug, you jerk,” one attendee yelled. Later, the audience rejoiced after the decision. Residents will see if they win the war when the Port St. Lucie City Council has the final say on Sept. 23. “I was very proud that they decided this was not right for our area,” resident Diane Goldberg said. “We still have the city council who will still have to vote even though the planning and zoning board does not make a recommendation for it. We hope that they will do the right thing also.”

Dengue fever spreading swiftly Nicole Rodriguez Staff writer

nrodriguez@YourVoiceWeekly.com

TREASURE COAST — As the number of confirmed Dengue Fever cases on the Treasure Coast continues to swell, the Florida Department of Health in both Martin and St. Lucie counties are continuing to ask residents to remain diligent in mosquito protection efforts. In the past two weeks, eight additional cases of the mosquito-borne illness were confirmed in the Rio area of Jensen Beach, bringing the total to 15. Of the cases, nine are Martin County residents, two are out-of-state visitors and four are St. Lucie residents, health department officials said. Jensen Beach resident and Indian Riverkeeper, Marty Baum, encourages his neighbors to take official alerts seriously by tipping and tossing standing water in yards where mosquitos breed and

always using a repellant during outings, day or night. Before contracting the excruciating virus, often referred to as “break-bone fever” because of the intense joint pain it causes, Baum paid mosquitos little mind, saying the insects came along with the Florida way of life. Baum, who believes he was bitten by an infected mosquito in his significant other’s Rio back yard three weeks ago, said thanks to the high fever the illness brought, he remembers little from the experience, except for the pain. “I had a 102-degree fever,” said Baum, whose girlfriend also fell ill. The fever lasted for eight days, Baum added. “I was almost convulsing with shivers.” Baum said it all started with a headache. Symptoms usually appear three to 14 days after the bite of an infected mosquito and include sudden onset of fever, severe headache, eye pain, muscle and joint pain and bleeding, ac-

In all, Baum said he was bedridden for three weeks. “Nothing was comfortable,” Baum said. “Every joint hurt.” “… It totally, totally wiped me out,” said Baum, who works as an Indian River advocate. “I’m really glad it’s over.” Quick recognition and management of symptoms is effective at ensuring the condition doesn’t worsen.

MOSQUITO from page 4 proved sending the issue to an election at a late August meeting. TownPark has 383 homes, David said. When the district was established in 1927, it primarily encompassed Fort Pierce, David said. Since then, its boundaries have expanded to include areas in Port St. Lucie, St. Lucie West and Tradition by request. Townpark is the latest to make a request, David said. “The boundaries are never changed unless residents request to enter the district,” David said. Since her property isn’t waterfront, TownPark resident Sue Rudolph said the pests haven’t been that big of a problem. But she and her husband will still vote to join the district out of concerns for their community, Rudolph said. “We’re going to vote for it because they carry diseases,” Rudolph said. “We heard from the people in the front by the swampy area that the kids can’t even go out there. I fear for the children.”

“Forty-seven thousand acres of sea grass have been killed to date in the Indian River Lagoon since 2010, which far exceeds any documented or remembered events in terms of geographic scale, bloom intensity and duration. It is alarming because sea grass is an indicator of the lagoon’s health, a food source for manatees and a nursery, refuge and a place of forage for a variety of fish and other marine life.” John Haddox Martin County Commissioner

LAGOON from page 1 which far exceeds any documented or remembered events in terms of geographic scale, bloom intensity and duration,” the draft says. “It is alarming because sea grass is an indicator of the lagoon’s health, a food source for manatees and a nursery, refuge and a place of forage for a variety of fish and other marine life.” Another concern, the draft notes, is how hazardous the water has become to humans. “This runoff is causing a public health threat as microcystis aeruginosa, a single-celled blue green alga, or cyanobacterium, has proliferated in the lagoon to form dense blooms, which produce multiple toxins, including liver toxins, as well as neurotoxins,” the draft states. What would a state-issued state of emergency mean for the area? Patrick Gillespie, press secretary for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection explained in an emailed statement last week action could be swift. “If a state of emergency is declared, the public is alerted or warned of an imminent or actual threat,” Gillespie wrote. “Executive orders can suspend rules and statutes for permitting, though the department quickly issued a permit within its rules last week to cut a gap in (the) Tamiami Trail near Broward and Miami-Dade counties to improve water flow. Work on that started this week by the South Florida Water Management District.” Dzadvosky said he expects the draft’s final version will be approved by the commission sometime this month. A copy of

the draft was sent to the Martin County Board of County Commissioners with the hope they will be on board and also approve the draft. Commissioner John Haddox, who represents Palm City, said he has already read through it, saying it was “well prepared.” If another commissioner doesn’t request the item to be heard, Haddox said he will. “It will send a strong message to the federal government of the severity of the discharges and condition of the lagoon,” Haddox said. The lagoon, which generates an estimated $3.7 billion a year for the Treasure Coast, supports 15,000 full- and part-time jobs and provides recreational opportunities for 11 million people per year. It’s also the most bio-diverse waterway in all of North America, boasting more than 4,000 plant and animal species, including manatees, oysters, dolphins, sea turtles and seahorses. Indian Riverkeeper Marty Baum said a state of emergency should have been declared months ago. “These discharges have absolutely wrecked the biodiversity in our end,” Baum said. “The biodiversity in all of North America is now moot. It doesn’t exist.” Jim David, director of St. Lucie County’s Mosquito Control and Coastal Management Services Department said it’s dire the governor issue a state of emergency declaration. “If this were a billion dollar oil spill, the Coast Guard would have been here the next day,” said David, who has proposed cleaning the lagoon using booms, which are used to clean oil spills.

CAVE from page 3 method of pest control.” Cave served in the Peace Corps in Paraguay and El Salvador and taught for 15 years at the Escuela Agricola Panamerican, Zanorano, in Honduras. Central and South America present special problems in pest control. “A lot of the times, we don’t know the pest causing the problem,” he said. “There are so many more species in the tropics and they’re not nearly as well known. It’s fairly easy to get identification in the United States, but when things attack a crop in Central America, getting it identified can be a challenge. “It may be new and you don’t know its natural enemies. Here, we know the natural enemies. In the Tropics, you don’t know what a bad bug is and what good bugs eat it. If we find an adult, where do the larvae live? It hasn’t been researched.” Cave’s area of interest has always been beetles and their identification. Several species have been named for him. “There are many, many thousands of beetles,” he said. “They’re what flipped my switch. It’s not difficult to find new species in the Tropics. They’re bound to name one after me now and then. “The great majority are not

known to science. In some 250 years of taxonomy, only 1 million species of insects have been named and described, while it is estimated that there are between 3 million and 50 million species in the world.” The researcher said that one component of effective and sustainable pest control will involve cultural control. “That is the manipulation and management of the environment to disfavor the pest and favor its natural enemies,” he said. “It is employing new agronomic methods that are less favorable for the pest, such as eliminating some weeds or allowing some weeds to grow. It may be the way the crop is irrigated or the soil prepared.” Cave said that there is a great deal of research going on in breeding varieties of crops that are resistant or tolerant of pests. It is not only university researchers, but growers and governmental agencies that are tackling the problem. Cave said that Florida is fertile territory for an entomologist. “It’s a hotbed for invasive species,” he said. “The subtropical climate means no hard freeze to kill things off. There is also a great diversity of vegetation, both native and non-native. Invasive insects find food and a hospitable environment. It’s a huge salad bar for them.”

Tips on repellent use Always read label directions carefully for the approved usage before you apply a repellent. Some repellents are not suitable for children. Products with concentrations of up to 30 percent DEET (N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide) are generally recommended. Other U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-approved repellents contain Picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus or IR3535. These products are generally available at local pharmacies. Look for active ingredients to be listed on the product label. Apply insect repellent to exposed skin or onto clothing, but not under clothing. In protecting children, read label instructions to be sure the repellent is age-appropriate. According to the Centers for Disease Control, mosquito repellents containing oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children under the age of 3. DEET is not recommended on children younger than 2 months old. Avoid applying repellents to the hands of children. Adults should apply repellent first to their own hands and then transfer it to the child’s skin and clothing. If additional protection is necessary, apply a permethrin repellent directly to your clothing. Again, always follow the manufacturer’s directions. Source: Florida Department of Health

Dengue Fever. Baum said he used ibuprofen and aspirin to manage his symptoms. Dengue Fever is a disease transmitted to humans by the bite of an infected mosquito, not person to person. In the Western Hemisphere, the Aedes aegypti mosquito is the main transmitter of dengue viruses. In some cases, the Aedes albopictus mosquito has also transmitted the disease. Both of these tropical mosquitoes are found in large numbers in Martin and St. Lucie counties. Locally acquired dengue is rare in the U.S. Prior to the 15, the last case was contracted by a resident of Port Salerno in August 2011. There have been no previous locally acquired cases of dengue in St. Lucie County, officials said. Nearly all dengue cases reported in the 48 continental states were acquired elsewhere by travelers or immigrants, according to the Centers for Disease Control website. Most dengue cases in U.S. citizens occur in those inhabitants of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Samoa and Guam, which are endemic for the virus, the website states. Both Martin and St. Lucie county mosquito control officials have been going doorto-door to drain spots in backyards with standing water. Efforts in Martin County have been concentrated in the Rio area, officials said. In St. Lucie County, five areas have been swept. “The way dengue is controlled is by putting boots on the ground,” Mosquito Control director Jim David said. “It’s not controlled by spray.” The mosquitos contract the

illness from biting infected humans then breeding with each other, David said.

Local Hero: Joann Rodriguez Opens Ali’s Place Kelly Jadon

FOR YOUR VOICE NEWS & VIEWS

ST. LUCIE COUNTY — This month, Joan Rodriguez opens the only after school program for youth ages 13-22 with disabilities in St. Lucie West. Named appropriately after her daughter, a young woman with Down syndrome, Ali’s Place is a program which will teach socialization, life skills and self-sufficiency to those who attend. The goal: ready these youth for work in the community after high school graduation. Joann Rodriguez is a two-year brain cancer survivor. Her inspiration for this start-up is her daughter, Ali. Ali attends a local public high school in St. Lucie County where she is in the 11th grade. When Ali was born, a hospital employee asked Joann if she would like to give her daughter up for adoption. Shocked, Joann responded, “No!” Her thoughts were, “She’s beautiful.”

Down syndrome occurs in one in every 691 babies in the United States, affecting all races. It is caused when a fetus has a “full or partial extra copy of chromosome 21,” which alters the baby’s development. In the U.S., there are more than 400,000 people with the Down syndrome. In the past, people with Down syndrome lived shortened lives, usually until around age 25 (1983), but because of new medical technology and pharmaceuticals, today, life expectancy for Down syndrome has risen to age 60. These citizens work, act, run businesses, vote, and are employees. Some even write news columns. Chris Burke played Corky Thacher on ABC’s “Life Goes On.” Today he writes a monthly column and is a member of the National Down Syndrome Society acting as a Goodwill Ambassador. http://www.ndss.org/AboutNDSS/Our-Team/Ambassadors/

Goodwill-Ambassador/StraightTalk-with-Chris-Burke/ Tim Harris is the owner of the restaurant Tim’s Place. Tim has been featured on CBS and NBC. He is a Special Olympics athlete. http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=y6He0FWoFj0 According to the National Down Syndrome Society’s website, the keys are “quality educational programs, a stimulating home environment, good health care and positive family and community support.” “Youth with disabilities can be a valuable part of society,” says mother Joann Rodriguez. She speaks from first-hand experience. Conney Dahn, Florida State Teacher of the Year, who is an expert in teaching those with disabilities, says this: “I believe there’s a place for them.” (Prior to the recession, 90 percent of Dahn’s high school graduates found jobs through a Career Ex-

perience program, much like that of Ali’s Place.) http://kellyjadon. com/blog/2013/7/15/ iobuq5kq8652evvlgij0l5dbzu5kvu. Ali’s Place is working with local businesses who have agreed to bring youth from her program into their work places as volunteers for training. One such business is the Vincent De Paul Thrift Shop in St. Lucie West. More local businesses are needed to open their doors and allow the youth to have on-the-job-training. Ali’s Place is open to youth, not just with Down syndrome, but also to other youth with disabilities. It is licensed and insured and Ali’s Place is a Medicaid Waiver provider. The program costs $50 weekly. The program employs a behavior tech who has experience within the public school setting, a sign language teacher, and several volunteers.

Club brings computers to kids Shelley Koppel Staff writer

skoppel@YourVoiceWeekly.com

ST. LUCIE WEST — When Sandy Lingle moved to the Cascades several years ago, the Computer Club was already in full swing. The group, founded by resident Bill Whetzel, its co-president, had between 250-300 members who got together to share knowledge about computers with users at all skill levels. Lingle joined the club to learn about computers; now, she serves as club communications liaison. Eighteen months ago, the group decided to take discarded computers, restore them and donate them to after-school and other programs. The kids who use the refurbished computers often do not have access to one at home. Lingle said that member Joyce Grossman noticed a lot of computers that were put out for trash collection. “She approached our board,” Lingle said. “She said that a lot of good equipment was going to waste. She proposed the idea that we make them work again and give them to after-school

programs where kids who haven’t had access to computers could become part of the computer age. Today, if you don’t know how to use computers, you’re lost.” The group decided to support the program and word soon spread throughout the community. People getting new computers were asked to donate their old ones. Financial contributions were also accepted to pay for additional memory and peripheral equipment that had to be purchased. Lingle said that the group follows strict procedures in handling the computers. “People trust us,” she said. “They give us computers with personal information. We use a hard drive shredder to scrub the hard drive. We take out the operating system so it is a box with hardware but no software. We match the software to the original equipment. Everything is according to factory specifications.” The group went on the Internet and discovered several free downloads for kids from groups like “Sesame Street.” They have since discovered that several of the programs are used in the schools. The club members also install

These are all free downloads that

work beautifully.” Surprisingly, it is not the age of the computer that determines whether it can be restored, but the operating system used.

Center in Stuart; and a desktop, four laptops and three printers to the Jensen After School Experience program in Jensen Beach. Lingle said she was no computer expert when she joined the club. “I wanted to learn how to use them,” she said. “Like many people, they intimated me.” She learned quickly and now has the pleasure of helping kids. “It’s very satisfying to do this kind of work,” she said. “I’ve never seen this done anywhere else. A program like this helps children keep pace with the technological advances they need to master to

succeed in school and business.” The group is not accepting computers or financial contributions right now because they have an embarrassment of riches. “Our storage facility is bursting at the seams,” Lingle said. “It takes a number of days to fully restore each computer to factory default and then update it to today’s standards. This has resulted in a situation where we are accruing donations faster then we can restore them.” They have that list of facilities and after-school programs that need computers. The dedicated group is working as fast as it can to give kids the tools they need to succeed in the 21st century.

As part of the It Can Wait anti-texting-and-driving movement, AT&T is urging people to share their commitment to never text and drive with their families, friends, neighbors and co-workers on Drive 4 Pledges Day, Sept. 19. Individuals can sign up at ItCanWait.com to get resources that will help them share their commitment on social media and personalize the movement on the streets of their communities. Aiming to create a social stigma around the dangerous habit of texting and driving, Drive 4 Pledges Day will focus on getting individuals to become advocates of the It Can Wait movement and help spread the word about the dangers of texting behind the wheel. Individuals are encouraged to do things like change their social profile photos and banner to It

Can Wait graphics, and share their personal pledge stories using the hashtag #ItCanWait. Advocates are also encouraged to host pledge drives and distribute posters in their schools, workplaces and neighborhoods. All materials, such as graphics and posters, will be available for download from ItCanWait.com. The It Can Wait movement is making a difference. One in three people who’ve seen the texting while driving message say they’ve changed their driving habits, the campaign has inspired more than 2.5 million pledges never to text and drive, and the recently launched “From One Second To The Next” documentary (twww.youtube.com/watch?v=_ BqFkRwdFZ0) has received more than 2 million views since Aug. 8. The It Can Wait campaign was started by AT&T in 2010 but has grown into a movement, with Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile and 200-plus other organizations joining the cause.

There’s also pork, fried chicken, marinated Bourbon Street chicken and pot roast, which is simmered for 12 hours before serving.

PORT ST. LUCIE — Lori Dolan Revilla doesn’t give much away. Dolan is the owner and manager of Actors with a Clue, which stages interactive murder mysteries. She is not about to tell who did it to a reporter. If you want to play Sherlock Holmes or Miss Marple, you can see the troupe at the Port St. Lucie Civic Center on Sept. 19 for an evening of dining and deduction. After dinner, they will present “Yer Cheatin’ Heart…Just Stopped Beating.” Revilla and her group are all pro-

fessional actors who have experience in theater, film and television. Many have improvisational skills, a well, because the audience gets involved and the performers have to think on their feet. While the murder mystery is a staple, the group does other types of programs including scavenger hunts and mock weddings. They have performed at corporate events and for summer camps. “The kids went nuts for it,” Revilla said. “There are kid and adult-oriented tasks. It’s not just a list of things to find. People have to do a task to get a clue. It’s really interactive.” While the group was originally

great atmosphere, clean restaurant.” The 10,330-square-foot restaurant, which seats 364, opened in early August and has been bustling with business since, Olama said. “The city of Port St. Lucie has welcomed us real good and we enjoy serving them,” he said. Olama said being in the restaurant business is “in his blood.” During his three decades in the business, Olama owned a chain of Denny’s Restaurants in the Orlando area before opening his first Golden Corral in 2006. Olama is planning to open a fifth Golden Corral in the St. Petersburg area. “It’s something that I’m good at and I love meeting different people every day,” Olama said. Olama’s St. Lucie West location is a shining example of his passion for stellar service and wholesome food with a family-friendly atmosphere.

and French toast. Although the restaurant is a buffet, the service is superior. Servers make sure customers are satisfied and always have a fresh drink. Owner Fred Olama said he’s happy his staff has gained that great reputation in the short span the restaurant has been open. “We’re seeking to make a pleasurable dining (experience) for all of our guests and enjoy the dollar amount they spend with the quality of food,” said Olama, who favors the pot roast. “Great food,

geared toward adults, they did a lot of work at time shares where there were kids in the audience. The kids didn’t want a murder in the story, so they came up with the scavenger hunts. Each of the shows is self-contained. The group brings its own sound system and microphones and averages five actors per show, although mock weddings may have as many as 10. “It’s set up like a real wedding, but it’s comical,” Revilla said. “We did “Bubba Bags a Bride,” with a hillbilly theme, way before ‘Honey Boo Boo.’ We also have ‘Goombas in Garters: A Love Story.’ It can be Italian, Latin or gay. The story stays the same. The dialogue and characters change. I like to customize my shows.” The group appeared at the Civic Center in July, with a different show. Revilla knows there can be too much of a good thing. “I don’t do overkill,” she said. “I don’t do a show every week.” The group will return to the Civic Center in November with a different program, “Hooray for Holly-weird.” While Revilla never reveals a plot, she does say that the cast of characters might include Candy Coqauvin, a wine sommelier; Hay R. Ewing, son of the deceased owner of the West Spoon Ranch; Judy Garlic, a world-famous actress; and Cecil B. DePille, the famous director. “Any or all may appear,” Revilla

said. “There may be others. That’s all I’m giving away.” Some members of the audience will have bit parts. “We do a couple of scenes with the audience playing characters,” she said. “They don’t have to learn anything. If it’s a private group, we might ask the host who the six biggest hams are. We hand them a paragraph to read. They really get into it. Sometimes we have to stop them because they get into it.” Everything the group performs is written by them, so they are able to tailor the show to the audience. That means that shows can be tamed down to make them suitable for younger audiences. They have performed at theater camps. “We’re professionals,” Revilla said. “It’s fun, and we’ve been doing this awhile. We get compliments from the staffs (at the venues) on the level of professionalism.” Feeling like Colombo, I wanted to ask Revilla just one more thing, but she clammed up. She had said all she was going to. You’ll just have to wait until Sept. 19 if you want to know more. Actors with a Clue presents an evening of dinner theater at the Port St. Lucie Civic Center, 9221 S.E. Civic Center Place, on Sept. 19 at 7 p.m. Tickets for dinner and the show are $40 and are only available in advance. For more information, call (772) 807-4499 or visit the website www. actorswithaclue.com. You can select your dinner and order tickets at the website.
