Congressman Murphy Participates

NOT All Aboard Florida Forum

Out2martincounty.com

Stuart — Representatives of All Aboard Florida, the Florida Department of Transportation and the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County were part of an All Aboard Florida forum held at the Blake Library on Wednesday evening.

Sponsored by the Martin County Taxpayers Association. The forum was intended to raise awareness about the plan to provide high-speed passenger rail service from Miami to Orlando. The trains would not stop on the Treasure Coast, according to Richard Geisinger, president of the organization.

“I didn’t even know what (All Aboard Florida) was 90 days ago. At first we heard it was a done deal, and we were thinking how could this happen without public input? It’s not a done deal. If we didn’t know, probably other people don’t either,” he said.

The association’s concerns about the rail service outweigh any potential benefits, he said.

If All Aboard Florida becomes a reality, it would more than double the number of trains traveling through the Treasure Coast. All Aboard Florida plans to run 16 round trips daily. Florida East Coast Railway — an All Aboard Florida sister company — uses the same tracks to run 14 trains daily between Miami and Jacksonville.

Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Jupiter, who has been speaking out against All Aboard Florida, gave the opening address. His remarks were followed by a panel discussion.

The public comment that got the most approval by the attendees was a comment that suggested that the local governments seize railway right-of-way property via Eminent Domain.

Martin County High School Homecoming 2014

Out2martincounty.com

Stuart – I tell this story each year and it seems to be more important as each year goes by. A profound comment was made last evening just before the beginning of the 2008 Homecoming Parade in downtown Stuart.

”You can’t get any more “small town America than this.”

Each year I think immediately of how right this gentleman was, I simply hope that these kinds of events do not disappear from our culture it restores our connection to each other when we knew each other in different place in time.

Lyric Theater Under Construction

Out2martincounty.com

Stuart — If you “Native New Yorkers” have not been downtown lately you need to visit the front of the Lyric Theater.

Under construction and rehab until November the front of the theater takes one back, at least for me, to the fifties, when on 10th Ave., in what is today know as the Lincoln Center district, all the buildings looked like this. The buildings were condemed and old doors from the apartments were lined up side-by-side as a protection wall. On that wall was everything from the next fight at the old Garden to who might be appearing at Basin Street East.

Thank you John Lesser for the memories.

Gold’s Gym of Stuart Hosts Zumba for Tatas

Out2martincounty.com

By Megan Morris

STUART — Stuart broke out their pink attire and danced for a cause on Saturday. Visitors to Gold’s Gym Zumbaed for Tatas raised money to fight breast cancer.

Zumba infuses Latin rhythms with exercise to create a workout routine that is fun and easy to follow. This total workout combines all elements of fitness – cardio, muscle conditioning, balance and flexibility.

Because it was a fundraiser, Zumba for Tatas had a nominal fee of $10 for pre-registration or $15 at the door. All proceeds benefited the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk on Oct. 25 in Port St. Lucie. There will be raffles, prizes, giveaways, snacks, free child care and even a competition for Best Dressed in Pink. This is the second annual Zumba for Tatas held at Gold’s Gym.

“Every breast cancer walk and event is an incredible and inspiring opportunity to honor those who have battled breast cancer, raise awareness about what we can do to reduce our breast cancer risk, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease with research, information, services and access to mammograms for women who need them,” said Sharon Horton of the American Cancer Society. “We are deeply grateful to Roy and Mary Jane Stefanowski and Gold’s Gym of Stuart for lending their facilities to assist us in reaching these goals.”

“We are more than excited that we can kick-off this event with Zumba for Tatas,” said Mary Jane Stefanowski. “This program emphasizes the role fitness plays in having a positive attitude in breast cancer prevention and recovery. What could be better than combining a fun workout with raising money to fight breast cancer?”

Palm City Dolphins Defeat Stuart Bulldogs 36 – 30

In Double Overtime

 Out2martincounty.com

By Dick Hall

Palm City –- As a little boy the idea that you could play in a game against one of your biggest your rivals in a “mud” bowl in this day and age is rare. However, that is exactly what happened on Saturday as the Pop Warner Palm City Dolphins met the Stuart Bulldogs.

Overnight the skies opened up with about 2 inches of rain and normally that would be no big deal but in this early Fall season, however, after an extremely wet summer the water did not run off the field as usual.

There was no lightening, which normally would stop a game with all this water, and the experience of a lifetime began for these little guys. These are the kind of conditions, childhood football was made for. In an age when every field is either inside or synthetic or overly manicured, the aspect providing probably the safest condition to play this evermore dangerous sport, “mud” is gone to the ages.

The photos that follow are a pictorial record of that game. Enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them and remember when you little guys over the age 65 played in games like this one..

The Palm City Dolphins participates in the Pop Warner Little Scholars Program.

Pop Warner Little Scholars, Inc. (PWLS) is a non-profit organization that provides youth football and cheer & dance programs for participants in 42 states and several countries around the world. Consisting of approximately 400,000 young people ranging from ages 5 to 16 years old, PWLS is the largest youth football, cheer and dance program in the United States.

Pop Warner was founded in 1929, continues to grow and serves as the only youth football, cheerleading & dance organization that requires its participants to maintain academic standards in order to participate. Pop Warner’s commitment to academics is what separates the program from other youth sports around the world.

As the only national youth sports organization that requires scholastic aptitude to participate, Pop Warner is committed to developing America’s young people on the field and off. Each year Pop Warner continues to expand its efforts in team and activity participation, as well as visibility and outreach in the community.

Stuart — “I am here to defend the Constitution of the State of Florida”, was the overriding theme of the address Florida Attorney general tried to covey at the Charles and Rae Kane Center before a more than supportive audience.

“I put my hand on the Bible and swore to uphold the constitution and weather it be issues from Gay Marriage, Medical Marijuana or Anti-Human Trafficking I will continue to do just that.

Attorney General Bondi also thanked Governor Rick Scott for his support on all those issues and his success in the fight for restoring Florida jobs over the past four years.

NASA Awards Space Taxi Contract to

Boeing and SpaceX

Out2martincounty.com

NASA has awarded the highly-anticipated space taxi contract to Boeing and SpaceX, a move which will end the agency’s reliance on Russian technology to transport U.S. astronauts to the International Space Station.

The Commercial Crew Transportation Capability contract aims to restore an American capability to launch astronauts from U.S. soil to the International Space Station by the end of 2017. Since the end of the Space Shuttle program in 2011, American astronauts have been transported to space on Russian-built Soyuz vessels.

“We know that going to space is hard,” said Kathy Lueders, NASA’s Commercial Crew program manager, during a press conference at Kennedy Space Center. “NASA and aerospace industry have accomplished hard things in the past.”

In addition to SpaceX and Boeing, Sierra Nevada and Blue Origin were all in the running for the $6.8 billion contract.

During the press conference, Lueders explained that NASA’s deals with Boeing and SpaceX are worth $4.2 billion and $2.6 billion, respectively. “There’s a maximum of 6 missions under that contract value,” she added.

Boeing’s CST-100 spacecraft, which recently completed its critical design review of integrated systems, was at the core of the company’s bid. SpaceX’s Dragon craft led its bid.

Sun Unleashes Major Solar Flare at Earth

 Out2martincounty.com

A big storm erupted on the sun today (Sept. 10), and Earth was in the crosshairs.

The sun unleashed an X-class solar flare — the most powerful type — at 1:45 p.m. EDT (1745 GMT) today from an Earth-facing sunspot known as Active Region 2158, which also fired off another intense solar flare yesterday. Both space weather events were captured on camera by NASA’s sun-watching Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft.

Today’s solar flare qualifies as an X1.6 storm but poses no danger to anyone on Earth or the astronauts living aboard the International Space Station, NASA officials told Space.com. However, some people’s lives could be affected by the solar tempest.

“Impacts to HF [high-frequency] radio communications on the daylight side of Earth are expected to last for more than an hour,” researchers with the National Weather Service’s Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) wrote in an online update today.

Further effects could be felt later in the week if the sunspot also fired off a cloud of superhot plasma known as a coronal mass ejection (CME). CMEs often accompany powerful flares and can trigger geomagnetic storms when they hit Earth, typically two to three days after erupting.

Geomagnetic storms can temporarily disrupt GPS signals, radio communications and power grids, as well as intensify the beautiful auroral displays known as the northern and southern lights.

It’s probable that Wednesday’s eruption did indeed produce a CME, SWPC researchers said.

“Initial information suggests that a CME is likely associated with this event, but further analysis is underway at this time,” they wrote in today’s update.

Scientists classify strong solar flares according to a three-tiered system, with C flares being the weakest, M flares medium-strength and X flares the most powerful.

Wednesday’s X1.6 flare qualifies as intense, but is far from the strongest blasted out by the sun this year. For example, our star fired off a monster X4.9 flare in February. (X4 flares are four times as powerful as X1 flares.)

The sun is currently at or near the peak phase of its 11-year activity cycle, which is known as Solar Cycle 24. But our star has been relatively quiescent during Solar Cycle 24, whose max phase is the weakest in about 100 years, scientists say.

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory is one of several spacecraft regularly monitoring the sun to track space weather events and their potential risks to astronauts and satellites.

Ultimate Frisbee Continues In Martin County

Out2martincounty.com

Palm City — Ultimate was developed in 1968 by a group of students at Columbia H.S. in Maplewood, NJ. Although Ultimate resembles many traditional sports in its athletic requirements, it is unlike most sports due to its focus on self-officiating, even at the highest levels of competition. This concept, called Spirit of the Game, is integrated into the basic philosophy of the sport, written into the rules, and practiced at all levels of the game from local leagues to the World Games.

If you’re interested come out2 Palm City Park, 6:00 PM Mondays.

Inner Tube Water Polo Finals

Out2martincounty.com

Stuart — On Saturday four teams played an inner tube water polo double elimination tournament at Sailfish water Park for United Way of Martin County.

Inner tube water polo is a variation of the sport water polo with the important difference that players, excluding the goalkeeper, are required to float in inflatable inner tubes. By floating in an inner tube, players experience less contact and expend less energy than traditional water polo players, not having to tread water. This allows casual players to enjoy water polo without undertaking the intense conditioning required for conventional water polo.

“We wanted a new and entertaining summer fundraising event that family, friends or co-workers could all participate in,” said Wendie Berardi, director of corporate engagement and donor relations. “Inner tube water polo is perfect because everyone can keep cool in the pool and the inner tube evens the playing field.”

While inner tube water polo might be all fun and games; ending hunger, strengthening families, improving people’s health, creating job opportunities, providing solid education for all, and ensuring safety are no laughing matter. In fact, United Way has made it a priority to solve these problems and all proceeds from the event will be put back into the community where they’re needed most.

Palm City -– Domestic Violence is a pattern of abusive behaviors used to establish power and control over an intimate partner often leading to the threat or use of violence. Abuse is any controlling behavior, hurtful acts, word, or gesture that injures another’s body or emotions. Domestic violence is not a disagreement, a marital spat, or an anger management problem.

All Treasure Coast victims of domestic violence who are requesting emergency shelter receive safe housing at one of our two residential shelter facilities.

Anyone can access SafeSpace services by the 24-hour hotline 1-800-500-1119 or referral by friends or family, law enforcement, or other social services agencies.

2014 Surfers For Autism

 Out2martincounty.com

Stuart Beach — Surfers For Autism mission is to unlock the potential of people with developmental delays, support advocacy for autism issues and scientific research. Our focus is to eliminate stigma through public awareness and education and to unite communities through volunteerism. Our History It was December of 2007 when a simple idea was presented to a small group of South Florida surfers by a member whose life and family have been touched by autism. The concept of introducing children on the autism spectrum to surfing took hold and the group began planning for the inaugural Deerfield Beach event.

Fundraising efforts help us fulfill our mission of bringing these life-changing events to as many communities as possible and to help fund autism research, awareness and advocacy. Fundraising would be conducted by soliciting local businesses to donate product and services for a raffle and through the sale of event specific T-shirts.

On April 5, 2008, the inaugural Surfers For Autism event was held on the north side of the Deerfield Beach Pier where 40 surfers with autism hit the water and over $10,000 was raised to benefit autism associated charities. The organization has since hosted events in several locations on Florida’s East Coast, and single events have registered as many as 200 surfers and raised close to $20,000.

At the Stuart SFA event, our surfers are provided a safe environment where two to four highly skilled and trained surf instructors carefully guide them into waves. Our surfers and their families are treated like rock stars and enjoy a day filled with a range of activities including stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, live music, face-painting, games, bounce houses, fire engine tours and much more. A catered lunch is also provided, all at no cost. This is a very special day where children with ASD interact with typical peers and wow families with their capabilities. This event is an example of inclusion at the highest level.

2014 Single Fin Showdown

 Out2martincounty.com

In photo: That’s why it’s called “Single Finn”

Stuart — Raising money for United Way and Martin County’s less fortunate residents was as easy as catching a wave and enjoying the day at the beach.

Back by popular demand for the sixth consecutive year, the Single Fin Showdown is a unique surf contest that challenges surfers to ride retro surfboards at random while at the same time raising money for United Way of Martin County’s 2013-13 campaign.

The Showdown has raised $25,000 during the past five years for United Way’s Common Good Fund that supports everything from early learning opportunities to adult day care programs at 46 local nonprofit agencies.

The 2013 Single Fin Showdown took place on St Patrick’s Day weekend again this year at Stuart Beach, and featured seven divisions for surfers of all ages. Registration included an event T-shirt, as well as a chance to win one of many prize packs loaded with all kinds of surf-related gear.
