Detox derailed Nicole Rodriguez Staff writer

nrodriguez@YourVoiceWeekly.com

TORINO — Torino residents won a months-long war they waged against a proposed detoxification center in their neighborhood when the Port St. Lucie City Council shot down the plan at its regular Sept. 23 meeting. The council unanimously denied a special exception that would allow the detox portion of the project. Council was also unified when they denied the group home site plan. “I was very proud of the mayor and city council. I think they did the right thing,” Torino resident Diane Goldberg said after the meeting, which endured for more than four hours. “I certainly thought that I worked very hard to

Mutter’s Hearing Center, Inc. The Fitting That Was Heard Around the World Thirty years ago this month, President Ronald Reagan made headlines when he appeared in public wearing Starkey INTRA hearing aids. As a powerful world influencer and one of the first public figures to be fitted with a hearing aid, President Reagan increased the acceptance of hearing devices and marked a monumental turning point in the hearing healthcare. Starkey Hearing Technology had a front row seat at this momentous event! Having fit President Regan and his public appearance wearing his Starkey Hearing Aids the perception of hearing loss in America changed almost overnight. Americans soon realized if the “Great Communicator” was able to be helped with better hearing, they could be too. President Regan sparked a movement focused on reducing the stigma of wearing hearing aids and became an advocate for those with hearing loss and advanced the accessibility of hearing healthcare to those Americans with hearing loss. At Mutter’s Hearing Center our goal is the same as President Regan’s and Starkey Hearing Technologies; provide every person who needs hearing help with the best technology, care, and service available.

Hearing Aid Specialist Joe Mutter Fits and Dispenses American-owned and operated Starkey hearing aids to clients in St. Lucie County and the surrounding area.

DETOX from page 1 bring up points that were steadfast for them to deny the facility.” Residents argued many of the project’s pitfalls, including its vast size. Mayor JoAnn Faiella agreed. “My thing is, it’s not compatible to that area and that’s the bottom-line for me – the intensity,” Faiella said. The founder of New Life Addiction Treatment Center, which is located in Port St. Lucie, wanted to build a facility with two buildings on the 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 was to include a 30-bed detox and a rehabilitation center. The first phase would have been 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 completed detoxification. That part of the plan was changed in recent weeks to appease residents, project representatives said. It changed to be a single-story 14,000-square-foot, 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 and allow for a longer stay and more patients, do. Recovering drug and alcohol addicts are considered disabled under the Americans with Disabilities Act and are protected under the federal 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. Councilmembers said they expect a lawsuit, but reserved the right to vote on the item. “Until the federal government says we have hands off on this issue, and as long as there’s something in front of me that says I get to votes ‘yes’ or ‘no,’ that means I get to vote ‘yes’ or ‘no’ depending on what I feel is compatible with a neighborhood,” Councilwoman Michelle Berger said. Vice Mayor Linda Bartz echoed the same sentiment. “We have to start making some decisions until we are told we can’t,” Bartz said.

YOUR VOICE NEWS & VIEWS • ST. LUCIE WEST/TRADITION • SEPTEMBER 27, 2013 • 3 Councilman Ron Bowen questioned past statements by the project’s developer Brad Currie. During earlier meetings and interviews, Currie said each potential patients would undergo a background check and anyone with a criminal record would be turned away. The center would also deny court-mandated patients, Currie and the site’s head doctor and owner Jose Toledo said in the past. On Sept. 23, Currie said the detox facility would be a better alternative than jail for those with repeat DUIs. Bowen pointed out the discrepancy. “A lot of people with substance abuse issues may or may not have police records,” interjected James Green, a West Palm Beach lawyer who is representing the developers. That didn’t sit well with residents. “I don’t like that they said that they wouldn’t be accepting criminals and then that kind of changed tonight,” MaryAnn Ketcham said. Goldberg, who was one of 1,035 residents who signed a petition against the center, said there are no regulations in place that would enforce the developers’ promises to deny treatment to individuals with a criminal record. “I know that whatever they said as far as how they’re going to work the facility is not something that they have to do,” she said. “So what they say here today could be something totally different than what will transpire.” Currie said the treatment facility would essentially bolster the area’s reputation as a hub for research and medical treatment and would not negatively affect residents. “There’s no evidence placed on the record since the project has been proposed that this project will impact the health, convenience and safety of residents,” Currie said. Currie said patients would have little to no free time to “go outside and wander” and would be located by staff every thirty minutes. If a patient did exit the facility, they would not be let back in, Currie said to scoffs from the crowd. Resident Norma Pratt said that was her main concern. “It would be a very sad day if this proposal gets approved and our kids get killed, raped and mugged, never mind the property values will drop to zero,” Pratt said before the council took its vote. James Green and Brad Currie declined comment during their heavily police-guarded exit from City Hall.

manatees, 60 bottlenose dolphins and 250 brown pelicans have died in the Indian River since 2010,” the resolution states. Commissioner Kim Johnson said the resolution is the first step toward a permanent fix. “This is not a Band-Aid problem. It’s been like a lingering disease going on for years,” Johnson said. “Enough is enough. It’s time to go to the hospital. It’s time to go to the doctor.” The draft is also telling of the dangers the dirty water poses to humans who come in contact with it. “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 resolution states. Commissioner Chris Dzadovsky estimates the economic hit the Treasure Coast has taken since the Army Corps of Engineers ramped up Lake Okeechobee discharges over the summer is great. The lagoon is an important commercial and recreational fishery and economic resource to the state and region. Its total estimated annual economic value is $3.7

Mitch Kloorfain/chief photographer Martin County Commissioner Ed Fielding listens as St Lucie County Commissioner Chris Dzadovsky makes a point during a meeting of six county commissioners met to work together on an agenda for the future involving the health of the Indian River Lagoon and protecting the lifestyles of those who rely on the lagoon as a source of income and recreation. The attending commissioners also included Peter O’Brien of Indian River County, Josh Wagner of Volusia County, Hal Valeche of Palm Beach County and Chuck Nelson of Brevard County. billion, supporting 15,000 full and part-time jobs and providing recreational opportunities for 11 million people each year. Tourism is down 9 percent. The county is still looking for definitive evidence the drop was caused by the discharges, Dzadovsky said. Ahead of the resolution’s final approval, governmental representative from six counties in and around the Treasure Coast met to discuss the waterway’s disastrous effects on the economy. “I think what’s important is that people of each of these counties has spoken very loudly ... more importantly, so many people have lost their businesses. Local fisherman can’t fish and hotel stays are down,” Dzadovsky said. The office of U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Jupiter, hailed local government for its efforts to be heard. “While declaring a state of emergency is a state issue up to the governor, Congressman Murphy is pleased to see that all levels of government are looking at many options on how to address the health of the St. Lucie River and Indian River Lagoon,” Murphy’s communications director, Erin Moffet Hale, said in an emailed statement. “This has been a top priority and the Congressman has been continuously advocating not only for long-term solutions but outside-the-box, short-term solutions and supports all options being on the table.” The governor’s administration responded to the resolutions a day after by describing the federal re-

quirements St. Lucie and Martin counties must meet if the counties want reimbursement for damage done to the lagoon and estuary. Economic impact is not included, making reimbursement for monetary losses a tough case to make. The administration’s Division of Emergency Management issued a letter to St. Lucie County Commission Chair Tod Mowery and Martin County Commission Chair Sarah Heard dated Sept. 18. “FEMA’s Public Assistance program allows for the reimbursement of eligible costs to governmental agencies, as well as to some private non-profit entities that provide governmental-like services,” the letter, signed by the division’s director Bryan W. Koon states. “Under the Public Assistance program, reimbursable expenses are those costs necessary for implementing debris removal and emergency protective operations, as well for completing permanent repairs to physically damaged facilities of eligible applicants. Loss of revenue and increased operating expenses are not eligible for reimbursement,” it continued. Low-interest loans for small businesses may be the only solution available for those who suffered financial losses due to the lagoon’s state, the letter says. “This program offers low-interest loans for individuals and businesses under two different loan programs: Physical Damage Loans and Economic Injury Loan,” the letter states.

Sept. 11 feud continues to flame long after a phone call Patrick McCallister Staff writer

pmccallister@YourVoiceWeekly.com

TREASURE COAST — A phone call can change everything. Few things unify the nation and generate goodwill like Sept. 11. But the Treasure Coast has a Sept. 11 feud that’s often played out in the press for about a year. At its heart are two men who both claim — and have shown evidence that — they were among the hundreds of first responders who rushed to the Twin Towers as the buildings flamed and finally fell by terrorists’ hands. The men appeared together at Sept. 11 memorial events in 2010. They were associated with a charitable, but not incorporated as a not-for-profit, organization. That was 9/11 First Responders of the Treasure Coast. One campaigned for the other’s Port St. Lucie mayoral campaign. Now the two make dueling swirls of dizzying claims and counter-claims against one another. Both cast doubt on the significance of the other’s role on Sept. 11, 2001. Both tell stories about the same events, but their details are usually miles apart. They both claim to have information discrediting the other. In Stuart there’s former Department of Homeland Security officer Dennis McKenna. In Port St. Luc-

ie, former New York City Police Department detective and Counterterrorism Bureau member Al Hickey. So, what started the feud between Sept. 11 first responders that’s played out very publicly at times? McKenna said it’s all about jealousy over four pieces of metal from the World Trade Center he helped obtain and the city of Port St. Lucie and Martin County now have. The metal pieces arrived on the Treasure Coast in 2011. “I swear on the Blessed Mother, and I’m Catholic, (it’s) because (Al and his wife Christine Hickey) didn’t get steel,” McKenna said in a Your Voice News & Views interview. Hickey agreed the men’s falling out started shortly after those pieces of the World Trade Center arrived. However, he disputes whether McKenna obtained them. “Dennis (McKenna) did not get the steel,” he said. “It was Councilman Jack Kelly who called the Port Authority and got them.” Kelly, a former Port St. Lucie councilman, didn’t return calls for comment by press time. Additionally, Hickey said that around the time the Trade Center metal arrived, he had growing questions about the veracity of McKenna’s employment and other claims. He requested that Your Voice not quote him about those questions. However, he referred

the newspaper to fellow former New York detective and Sept. 11 first responder Steve Cafino, Port St. Lucie. “(McKenna) shouldn’t be collecting money saying ‘I’m a New York City cop, a federal agent,” he said. After folding 9/11 First Responders of the Treasure Coast, McKenna started USA 911 First Responders. He said it has nine members, and doesn’t raise money. Rather, he said, the organization facilitates charity by connecting donors and those with needs. McKenna said he’s consistently claimed to have worked for the New York City Department of Health and Hospitals Police from 1984 to 1989, not the New York City Police Department. The department operates under the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation, and enforces state and city laws at facilities it operates. McKenna said he went to work for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, ICE, in 1991. The agency is now under the Department of Homeland Security, which formed in 2002. He was terminated from the job in 1995. He claims the termination was “politically motivated.” McKenna appealed the termination, and was restored in 2001, according to records he provided the newspaper. The department later moved him to Florida. He’s now retired. Cafino and others claim that McKenna worked as a detention officer — a prison guard — not as an agent, for ICE. McKenna said his last job title was “detention enforcement officer,” but that it entailed field investigations. He showed Your Voice identification cards identifying him as Immigration Enforcement Agent, and authorizing him to “execute search and arrest warrants,” “make arrests without warrant,” and other law enforcement duties. The Department of Homeland Security didn’t return calls by press time to clarify the duties of detention enforcement officers. McKenna denies that Kelley was instrumental in getting the Trade Center metal. “No politicians got involved until after I brought the steel,” he said. After the pieces of the World Trade Center arrived, the city of Port St. Lucie formed a committee to consider where and how an 11foot beam should be displayed. It’s at the Port St. Lucie Civic

Staff photo by Patrick McCallister Dennis McKenna, founder of USA 911 First Responders, has been a controversial figure on the Treasure Coast for about a year. Questions have swirled about the veracity of his claims about being a Sept. 11 first responder, a cop, and later an Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agent. One of his most visible skeptics and critics is former New York City detective Al Hickey. The two used to be associates through 9/11 First Responders of the Treasure Coast, a charitable organization that wasn’t an incorporated not-for-profit corporation. McKenna lives in Stewart. Hickey in Port St. Lucie.

ods of keeping water off the streets during downpours. A method district engineer Bob Lawson is building is one that centers on hydraulic gravity connections, the linkage of lakes to increase drainage flow. “The preliminary results that we see are that we get almost as much gain from doing a much less expensive gravity-type connection, rather than the pump,” Lawson said. The potential project will target the Lake Forest area, which has been identified as an area that accumulates surface water rapidly during major storm events. “The focus right now is the eastern edge along the Lake Forest area in the Basin 2C and 3B, which is pretty much everything on both sides of Cashmere Boulevard,” Lawson said. Lawson said he’s looking at the possibly of connecting one of the district’s wetlands with a neighboring lake and also connecting a lake in Country Club Estates with one in Lake Forest to speed up water flow for drainage. “We think those two together will give us our maximum amount of gain for a reasonable amount of money,” Lawson said during the district’s Sept. 10 board meeting. Although Lawson said he can’t put a price tag on the potential project, it will be cheaper than the $1 million to $1.3 million to install a pump. Once he’s done building models to weigh the pros and cons of hydraulic connections, Lawson will report back to the board. The pump concept was scratched because models showed that surface water would only be eliminated in the pump’s immediate area. The farther away one traveled from the pump site, the benefits wouldn’t be as bountiful, Lawson said. “Basically, looking at the pump, although it looks like a great idea, it really doesn’t have enough gain to make it worthwhile,” Lawson said. The current drainage system operates on a series of 24 gates, which are driven by gravity, Lawson said, and activated once water pressure reaches a certain level. Although the current system has performed remarkably well during large-scale rainfall events, Lawson said there’s always room for improvement. “We’re constantly working and looking for an alternative that will help the residents of St. Lucie West and not break the bank trying to get there,” Lawson said. “So it’s appropriate that we take our time and try to make sure we make the best decisions on behalf of the residents.” Lawson’s research comes in the wake of the rainy season’s wettest start since 1968. South Florida Water Management District meteorologists reported district-wide, 10.36 inches of rain fell in July, which is 3.33 inches above average. District meteorologists also reported the soggiest April through July period since 1932. South Florida’s rainy season usually begins around May 20 and ends Oct. 13. August gave residents a reprieve from rain with lower-than-normal rainfall. District-wide, 6.08 inches of rain fell, 1.70 inches below average for the 16 counties in the district. Average rainfall marked the first nine days of September, according to the district’s website. “August provided a much-needed respite from four months of heavy rainfall across the region,” Susan Sylvester, the district’s chief of the Water Control Operations Bureau, said in a press release. “Water managers have been using this drier period to regain storage in the system needed for the rest of the wet season.”

Hickey agreed that city officials shut him out of the memorial committee. “This is politically driven,” he said. “I ran for mayor in 2010. My wife had filed campaign complaints against (Mayor JoAnn Faiella).” In 2010, Hickey was running against the current Port St. Lucie mayor. McKenna assisted his campaign. In 2011, the Florida Elections Commission found probable cause that the campaign treasurer, Stephen Adkins, might have committed up to 24 violations of campaign finance laws. Faiella said the possible violations were oversights due to campaign experience. Rather than contesting the issue, she paid a $5,000 fine. Faiella said she wasn’t responsible for Hickey’s exclusion from the memorial committee. “I’m pretty sick of being accused by Al Hickey

www.YourVoiceWeekly.com now,” she said. “Again, it is not true.” Both men said they spoke on the phone after Hickey’s exclusion from the committee, and McKenna said he would serve on the Port St. Lucie memorial committee, although he lived in Stuart. Both said they went into the conversation as friends. Both said the friendship was past by the time the phone call was done. “After everything was done, I said, ‘This guy is not a friend; he’s a phony,’” McKenna said. “‘It’s all about him.’” Your Voice asked Hickey if he believed McKenna acted in disloyalty that ended their friendship. “That’s exactly right,” he said. Martin County is storing its pieces of the World Trade Center. There are hopes to build an appropriate monument at the new Veterans Memorial Bridge after it opens later this year.

Mitch Kloorfain/chief photographer St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara recognized Deputy Nate Stubley of St. Lucie West with the Combat Cross award for his role in the arrest of Eriese Tisdale following the killing of Sgt. Morales earlier this year.

Heroes who tried to save deputy honored Staff writer

nrodriguez@YourVoiceWeekly.com

ST. LUCIE COUNTY — The heroes from what is considered one of the darkest days of the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office emerged from the cloak of ambiguity to receive recognition for their display of immense solidarity and bravery in the moments surrounding the shooting death of Sgt. Gary Morales. “Gary exemplified everything you’d want to see in a phenomenal deputy, phenomenal police officer. We carry that tradition every day,” Deputy Nate Stubley said minutes after receiving the Combat Cross from Sheriff Ken Mascara during a ceremony at the Sheriff’s Office on Sept. 17. “Every day we come into work we give it 100 percent. We do that not only to honor him, but to honor the legacy of this sheriff’s office,” Stubley said. Stubley, a St. Lucie West resident who has been a law enforcement officer for various Treasure Coast agencies since 2008, said the morning of Feb. 28 started out routinely. As a recent hire, Stubley was still participating in

a field training program, which requires another deputy ride along to ensure Stubley was operating at Sheriff’s Office standards. While patrolling southern Fort Pierce, the scanner crackled with noise. “We did hear that there was a traffic stop and the subject took off. There was a brief chase,” Stubley said. “There was a description given of the vehicle and the guy that was sought after and I immediately drove to that area. I saw him (the suspect) and there was a car chase. A classic car chase.” “He ended up crashing,” Stubley said. “He immediately surrendered and I took him into custody.” Morales’s assailant, Eriese Tisdale, 26, was indicted in March on a first-degree murder charge. If convicted, he faces the death penalty. Morales, 35, was shot at point-blank range during the traffic pursuit at 9:28 a.m. near Oleander Avenue in Fort Pierce. Morales, who was seated in his marked patrol cruiser, gun still holstered, was shot in the side of the head, neck and arm. He died instantly.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY — St. Lucie County Schools spokeswoman Janice Karst is on unpaid leave following an arrest last month in Columbia County for driving while under the influence of alcohol, school officials have confirmed. Karst, 62, was arrested by a Florida Highway Patrol officer on Aug. 10 in Lake City, located west of Jacksonville, on a misdemeanor charge of DUI, an arrest report shows. A BOLO or “be on the lookout” was issued alerting Florida Highway Patrol to keep an eye out for a gold BMW driving erratically in the area. Dispatch received five calls about the car’s reckless driving, according to the report. Karst was stopped at 4:10 p.m. after her vehicle was spotted weaving in the northbound lane of SR 93, the report states. Karst admitted to having a red plastic cup filled with vodka, located between the passenger seat and

The trooper reported the cup was filled with approximately one-quarter of the alcohol. The trooper also noted Karst’s appearance. “As the defendant was searching for her license, I smelled the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her mouth area and her eyes were bloodshot and watery,” the trooper wrote. Noted, as well, were Karst’s mannerisms. “As I was talking with the defendant I noticed that her speech was slurred and she would ask

me the same questions over and over,” the report states. Karst failed a field sobriety test. A breath test measured her blood alcohol content at 0.209 and 0.215. The legal limit is 0.08. Karst’s unpaid leave began on Aug. 20, school officials said. Per policy, Karst reported her arrest within 48 hours, said Susan Ranew, Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources. “Until we come to a resolution involving Ms. Karst, she will be on unpaid leave,” Ranew said. Karst could not be reached for comment.

TREASURE COAST — After a couple stagnant months at 7.1 percent, Florida’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate dipped slightly from July to August. “We seem to be improving,” Odaly Victorio, communications coordinator for Workforce Solutions of the Treasure Coast, said. “Things seem to be getting better. We see actual evidence of it.” Florida’s unemployment rate dropped to 7.0 in August. The state’s unemployment rate for the same month in 2012 was 8.6 percent. The last time the state’s unemployment was that low was in September, 2008. That month is was also 7.0 percent. Locally, the Port St. Lucie Metropolitan Statistical Area, MSA, not-seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for August was 9.2 percent. The MSA includes all of St. Lucie and Martin counties. The two counties’ combined not seasonally adjusted unemployment rate in July was 9.5 percent. From May to June, the area’s not seasonally adjusted unemployment rate went from 8.5 percent to 9.4 percent. Victorio said the Treasure Coast typically has a summer jobs slump that lasts from June to Oc-

Lang Realty gets in the pink for breast cancer awareness month ST. LUCIE COUNTY— Lang Realty, with 11 offices from Boca Raton to Port St. Lucie, will literally go “pink” for the month of October in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and a donation to American Cancer Society,

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, for each home closed from Oct. 1 – 31. As part of the month-long promotion, Lang’s branding and advertising will be pink; offices will reflect pink with décor and “Lang Goes Pink” bracelets worn by all staff and agents. In addition to Lang Realty’s donation to American Cancer Society, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, the company’s Realtors will also be

JOBS from page 12 Monroe County, 4.0 percent. The state went from four to three counties with double-digit unemployment from July to August. The Port St. Lucie MSA also had the third highest not-seasonally adjusted unemployment rate among the state’s 23 MSAs and metropolitan divisions. “Unfortunately across the state, we’re still an area with some of the highest unemployment and that’s something we can’t ignore,” Victorio said. “We can’t lose focus. It’s still bad for our area residents.” However, she said there’s a silver lining to the subtropical gray cloud. “As much as we’re among the highest unemployment rates, we’re also among the highest job-growth rates,” she said. The unemployment rate is calculated using a variety of methods. Among them are telephone interviews with workers. Those that report not having jobs and looking for employment in the previous 30 days are counted as unemployed. Discouraged workers — those who are able to work and want jobs, but have not sought employment in the previous 30 days — are not counted in the unemployment figure. Many call this “shadow unemployment,” and it’s inherently difficult to track due to variations for why people don’t seek jobs. Victorio said there’s much evidence that the area’s unemployment rate is greatly affected by discouraged workers reentering job hunts. “I think people have become encouraged since last year, and we’ve been able to absorb it,” she said. As is usually the case, Martin County did much better than its neighbor on the jobs front. Its not-seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 7.5 percent in August. In July, it was 7.8 percent. Victorio said local housing activity has been increasing, which is a large contributor to better job numbers. Additionally, she said, there’s been an increase in area retail jobs. The monthly jobs report for July to August was released on Friday, Sept. 20.

making a donation for each home they close throughout October.    “Everyone has been affected by breast cancer in some way,” said Scott Agran, president of Lang Realty. “Many of our own agents and staff have personally battled this disease or have gone through this with loved ones.”

TREASURE COAST — Veterans unemployment is a national problem, but that means it exists in and must be solved by local communities. Martin Veterans aims to help reduce veterans unemployment in Martin County. “We formed a committee and exploring things that could be done,” said Ed Maxwell, first vice president of the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 1041, Stuart. The VVA is a Martin Veterans member organization. Martin Veterans will co-host a veterans job fair — called Veteran Connection — from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 17, at

shop are welcome to attend the next two. Among those who’ll help veterans build resumes and ready themselves to meet employers at the job fair are members of the Palm City Presbyterian Church’s Men’s Bible Study. Tom Lytle, elder, said the group members wanted to help the community. Many are veterans. “We thought, since we have business skills and have all hired, we could help vets prepare for interviews as they seek jobs,” the Vietnam veteran said. There’s wide disagreement about what the veterans unemployment rate is. What’s not disputed is that veterans — particularly young veterans — are more likely to be unemployed, or underemployed, than their non-veteran counterparts. Federal labor statisticians put veterans unemployment at about 10 percent, compared to a national average at about 7.3 percent for August. However, the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, and some other veterans organizations, hold that it’s closer to 15 percent. So, why the high unemployment? Numerous reasons are cited for veterans unemployment. What’s generally at the center of those explanations are the all-important resume and interview.

“A lot of veterans can’t translate their skills into the civilian world,” said Jose Tabar, veterans employment representative, Workforce Solutions of the Treasure Coast. “They don’t realize in the outside world, you get paid for those skills.” In short, many veterans are inept at speaking civilian job skills. Conversely, a number of hiring managers don’t speak military. In other words, they don’t understand how military experiences translate to job skills. “There’s an example of, ‘Have you ever done structured presentations?,’” Tabar said. “In the military, the junior doesn’t even think about it. It’s just, ‘They asked me to show some new recruits something and I did.’ It gets lost in translation. The manager is thinking one thing, and the veteran says, ‘Oh, that’s not what he’s looking for.’’” Lytle said the Men’s Bible Study members have helped veterans learn to speak civilian workplace. “Our group had worked with Workforce Solutions on one or two occasions,” he said. “We went over there and did mock interviews, looked at resumes and talked about their career goals. We’d look at what they did in the military.” In addition to learning to speak civilian workplace, Lytle said

Staff photo by Patrick McCallister Brent Williams spends time at the veterans room at Workforce Solutions of the Treasure Coast’s veterans room. The room is at the Port St. Lucie office, 584 N.W. University Blvd. in St. Lucie West. He recently discharged from the Marine Corps and is seeking work in technology and tech security.

WORK from page 18 many young veterans need help with self-evaluation and –expression. “We’ll sit with them and ask what their objectives are,” he said. “Find out a little about them. What they do well. What they like to do. Then we’ll look at their resumes and see if they reflect what they’re telling us.” Frank Tidikis, treasurer of the local VVA, said Martin Veterans is also finding out which local businesses speak military. “No one has a listing of veteran-owned businesses in the community,” he said. Tidikis said volunteers are calling the about 2,500 businesses in Martin County to find out if they’re veteran-owned or –managed. Martin Veteran will publish a directory to veteran owned businesses when that’s done. Maxwell, who owns Computer Station in Stuart, said he’s always been happy with veterans he’s employed. “They’re a good hire,” he said. “Usually they’re far more disciplined than the guy off the street. They know that there’s a mission

and a mission needs to be done.” Tabar said veterans throughout the Treasure Coast have resources at Workforce Solutions many don’t know about. “In Port St. Lucie, we actually have a resource room,” Tabar said. “It’s got 14 computers and it’s just for veterans.” That office is at 584 N.W. University Blvd. Tabar said Workforce Solutions has five veterans representatives. “We go to the employers and try to get them to open jobs to veterans,” he said. Martin Veterans is a collaborative project started with a $21,000 federal grant by the United Way’s Martin Volunteers. The Business Development Board of Martin County, Indian River State College and Workforce Solutions are among participating organizations. For more about Martin Veterans, visit martinveterans.org. Workforce Solutions is on the web at yourworkforcesolutions.com. The phone number is (866) 482-4473.

BACKUS from page 22 Focus on the Indian River Lagoon” will take a good long look at our beloved waterway. Enjoy originals of the Indian River and its western watershed by A.E. Backus and many of his contemporary students. Working in conjunction with the Ocean Research and Conservation Association, there will also be photographs of the lagoon by noted environmentalist and National Geographic photographer, Carlton Ward. A special symposium on the river will be held during the exhibition. The season’s premier exhibition, “Pop Rocks — Heroes, Icons and the Mundane” brings in nationally recognized leaders in the Pop Art world including New York City artists John “CRASH Maltos, Ronnie Cutrone and Ceravolo and Shalene Valenzuela. We will wrap up the season with the annual “Through the Eye of the Camera Juried Photography Show.” There is something for everyone at the A.E. Backus Museum of Art. Founded in 1960 as the Fort Pierce Art Gallery, and renamed following Backus’ death in 1990, the Backus Museum has always focused on exhibiting the artwork of local artists. While our focus and direction have broadened, we are still committed to exhibiting local talent, hence the juried shows we hold in the fall and in the spring. The juried competitions are open to anyone who wishes to enter. The rules and requirements are detailed in the application, available at the museum’s website www.backusmuseum.com. The juried show is judged from actual work. Artists can enter in any of four categories: Watercolor, Oil/ Acrylic, Varied Techniques or Three Dimensional. Only original artwork is accepted, no photography, no reproductions and no copies of another artist’s work. The entry fee is $25 per piece. The deadline for submission is 3 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 5. The A.E. Backus is a not-for-profit visual arts facility. All donations are tax-deductible. For more information about museum memberships or entering the juried show, please contact the A.E. Backus (772) 4650630, info@backusmuseum.com. The A.E. Backus Museum of Art is located at 500 N. Indian River Drive in downtown Fort Pierce.

AWARDS from page 9

Mitch Kloorfain/chief photographer St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara presented, Deputy Clarence Bennett with the Medal of Honor for his role in the apprehension of Eriese Tisdale following the killing of Sgt. Morales earlier this year. Deputy Bennett posed with Brian Morales, Holly Morales and Candy Morales of Lake Charles. ed together is also etched in his heart, Mascara said. “What I remember most about that scene, that darkest day, through tears and heavy hearts, each and every one of you performed your jobs flawlessly,” Mascara said. Despite the searing loss deputies experienced, devastated members of Morales’s Squad C canvassed the area to conduct witness interviews, collect evidence and secure the crime scene. Sgt. Gary Morales’s brother, Brian, attended the event with his mother, Candy Morales of Lake Charles, and the sergeant’s widow, Holly Morales. Brian Morales was touched by the tales of courageousness. “It’s a great honor to be here and to be alongside all of these heroes that are being honored today,” Brian Morales said. “It brings tears of pride.”

Stubley credited his extensive training for helping him remain focused and quickly apprehend Tisdale. His teammates were also an integral part in the operation, Stubley said. “I’m extremely proud. I couldn’t imagine being part of a better team. I’m really blessed to be here,” Stubley said. Major David Thompson was emotional while recounting the events from that day for the packed room of attendees. “We are extremely proud of the actions of all personnel on that terrible day,” Thompson said. “The people of St. Lucie County have good reason to be proud of their Sheriff’s Office, which functioned with such tremendous teamwork and skill.” Twenty-five-year law enforcement veteran Detective Scott DeMichael received the lifesaving award for his efforts to revive the mortally wounded Morales. “We were the first plain clothes on site and I just jumped in the ambulance with him,” DeMichael recalled. DeMichael performed chest compressions on Morales during the ride to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center & Heart Institute. “I was saying, ‘Gary, stay with us, Gary stay with us,’” DeMichael said. Asked if he could speak to Morales for a brief moment, DeMichael said, “I miss you brother.” Mascara also took to the podium to recount his memories from that tragic day. Off duty and close by, Mascara said he immediately sped to the scene after hearing the news. “I went up to Sgt. Morales’s car, not thinking the worst. His legs were out of the car,” Mascara said. “I assumed he was waiting for rescue. And (then) I saw the condition he was in and I immediately fell to my knees. I couldn’t believe it.” Mascara said the sobs and screams of one of his responding deputies still rings clearly in his ears. The way his deputies band-
