Causes of Death You Won’t Want on Your Death Certificate

Among the more interesting details you may find on a death record is the cause of death. Even more so when that cause leads a story:

Pint-sized problems

Anyone who has spent long hours staring small screens or reading small type knows a little about eye strain, but who knew it could be fatal? This 1880 census mortality schedule from Leadville, Colorado reveals that J. Nash died from “Sore Eyes.” Consider yourself warned.

Accidental deaths may be reported in newspapers, as was the case with Ohio politician and lawyer, Clement Vallandigham. Clement was defending a murder suspect and trying to demonstrate the possibility that the victim had shot himself. He attempted to demonstrate his theory, but grabbed a loaded gun by accident. His reenactment proved fatal. This article from The Herald and Torch Light of Hagerstown, Maryland (21 June 1871) describes the accident and the aftermath.

The defendant was eventually acquitted, but in 1875, he too succumbed to a bullet wound when he was shot in his saloon.

Death by Safe

Although Jack Daniel’s death certificate only lists “blood poisoning from operation,” the full story of the famous distiller’s death is a bit unusual. Apparently in frustration in not being able to open his safe, he kicked it, injuring his toe. The resulting infection was responsible for his death. The deadly safe is on display in Jack Daniel’s distillery in Lynchburg.

It Really Was a Wild, Wild West

If you think that the gunfights of the American West were a product of Hollywood, a look at some mortality schedules might change your mind. This Arizona City, Yuma County, Arizona mortality schedule is a good example. Eleven of the thirty-one deaths reported were due to wounds, a fracture of the skull, shootings, or stabbings.

At the bottom of the page, in the remarks section, the enumerator notes that, “I expect a great many violent deaths, this being a frontier county where all disputes are settled by the use of weapons, and it occurs between transient and single men who have no families.”

STARS AND STRIPES WAVE PROUDLY IN HOBE SOUND

Out2News.com

Hobe Sound — The Hobe Sound Murals project continues to create a sense of place along Hobe Sound’s main corridors with the newest mural, titled “Stars and Stripes”. Hobe Sound Mural #22 unfurls majestically with a 30′ x 15′ painted American Flag and Bald Eagle imagery along the south wall of the AMVETS Post #14 at the corner of 10450 SE Dixie Highway and Rohl Way. It is the 7th mural in the project to pop up along Dixie Hwy.

AMVETS, also known as American Veterans, is the largest and oldest veterans service organization open to all veterans and their families. Their mission is “to enhance and safeguard the entitlements for all American Veterans who have served honorably and to improve the quality of life for them, their families, and the communities where they live through leadership, advocacy and services.”

Local AMVETS First Trustee Danny Robinson, initiated the idea for the mural with artist, Nadia Utto. “I’m delighted to sponsor this mural to honor our local chapter and members, and to celebrate the 18th anniversary of the post at its present location. The flag and bald eagle represent the ideas and values that every veteran carries with them and we are so proud to have them on our wall for all those who pass by to see.”

As is custom, Hobe Sound Mural Project coordinator, Nadia Utto invites area artists to contribute to the mural projects. Jennifer Chaparro is the featured contributing artist for “Stars and Stripes”. Jennifer is an accomplished painter, chalk artist, head of AmazingStreetPainting and the non-profit International Street Painting Society, Inc. She is also the Communications and Outreach Coordinator for the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta. She has been invited to create temporary and permanent works throughout the country and around the world. Most recently she won the highly competitive People’s Choice award at the Local Showdown within the 2016 CANVAS outdoor Museum Show in West Palm Beach.

The Mural process began June 1st and will wrap up with an artist meet and greet on-site, Flag Day, Wednesday June, 14th beginning at 6 p.m. The public is invited to stay and enjoy a drink and appetizer with members at the Post.

Thanks to Benjamin Moore/Regal Paints in Hobe Sound for the generous donation of red, white, and blue paint.

Hobe Sound Murals began transforming the town with creative murals in 2009, with the mission of “Creating an outdoor gallery of beautiful walls, honoring our past, present vitality, and future promise.” This past fall, the Arts Council of Martin County honored the entire Hobe Sound Murals project with its Special Recognition Award at the 2016 mARTies event! Hobe Sound Murals is one of the 21 towns that have been designated to be part of the newly formed Florida Mural Trail.

Hobe Sound Murals is a project of Landmark Arts, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to “Creating Community Culture.”

Palm City, FL – On Sunday, May 14 at 4:00 pm more than 200 community members gathered in Palm City, FL for the first annual Mother’s Day Memorial Butterfly Release at Forest Hills Memorial Park located at 2001 SW Murphy Road. The remembrance, designed to support loss of parent, loss of child and general loss was organized by Forest Hills Community Outreach, a program of Forest Hills Funeral Homes, Memorial Park & Crematory.

The Mother’s Day Memorial Butterfly Release was a free community event open to the entire public. The remembrance featured invited speakers, Lisa Gillis Teetor and Christina Stamper who shared messages of hope and healing, and an uplifting special performance by five local women who performed an inspirational reading titled, ‘Remembering Mom.’ At the conclusion of the remembrance each guest received a live butterfly and together they released those beautiful butterflies into the sky as a symbol of love, transformation and hope.

Forest Hills Funeral Home Manager, Susan Niemi said this, “For some, Mother’s Day is accompanied by emotion that brings with it grief. Our desire is to provide special inspiration to our community to honor the memory of mothers. Forest Hills Community Outreach is committed to offering quality healing experiences for all those affected by loss.”

The Mother’s Day Memorial Butterfly Release is part of many activities and events conducted throughout the year by Forest Hills Community Outreach, a program of Forest Hills Funeral Homes, Memorial Park & Crematory.

Stuart Air Show Gearing Up For 2017

Out2News.com

New performers, attractions, ticket options; over $25,000 benefits Treasure Coast charitable partners in 2016

STUART, FL (April 24, 2017) — Planning of the 2017 Stuart Air Show is well underway and show organizers are thrilled to announce this year’s performers, new attractions, and ticket options, as well as celebrate the positive impact Air Show proceeds generated for its 2016 charitable partners.

This year’s premier act is Screamin’ Sasquatch, sponsored by Jack Links, a 1929 Taperwing Waco bi-plane with a jet engine that allows the plane to fly vertically, flip, tumble, and hammerhead torque roll, which is flown by one of the top aerobatic performance pilots in America, Lt. Col. John Klatt. Just a teaser–Sasquatch will have special meaning at this year’s show. Details to come!

Other new performers and attractions for 2017 include:

Jacquie B. The first female pilot to enter the aerobatic arena at the age of 50, and the first female solo pilot to perform at the 2010 Al Ain Aerobatic Show in the United Arab Emirates, Jacquie performs in a bright red Extra 300 two-seat, tandem, mid-wing aerobatic monoplane sprinkled with silver iridescent stars. Her show combines maneuvers as simple as a pull to vertical flight to the most difficult end-over-end gyroscopic tumbling an airplane can pull off.

Batcopter and Bat Mobile. Loved by all ages wherever it goes, this crime fighting helicopter flew and was filmed in the original 1966 BATMAN movie and the original television series BATMAN. Capt. Eugene A. Nock, A.T.P., has fully restored this nostalgic flying machine to complete airworthy condition and it appears at air shows, state fairs, special events and comic book events around the United States. Definitely not to be missed!

Wild Blue Rodeo. Jerry “Jive” Kerby, a retired U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, will perform a special night-time dedication to first responders on Friday evening in Wild Blue, a RV-8A that wants to be a fighter jet. The performance combines music, lights and aerobatic maneuvers.

U.S. Army Black Daggers. The official U.S. Army Special Operations Command Parachute Demonstration Team, the Black Daggers are a team of highly-skilled staff noncommissioned officers who perform free fall parachute demonstrations worldwide, completing an average of 1,250 practice and performance jumps every year. Audiences can expect smoke grenades, pyrotechnics and flags during the team’s demonstrations.

AeroShell. This five-man AT-6 Texan Advanced Trainer unit are real crowd-pleasers and has performed before at the Stuart Air Show. The North American AT-6 Texan, nicknamed “The Pilot Maker” first appeared in 1938, originally as a basic trainer for the U.S. Army Air Corps, and was also the primary training platform for all U.S. Airmen in World War II that went on to fly other fighter aircraft, such as the P-51 Mustang, F4U corsair, P-40 Warhawk and others.

Returning performers and attractions include:

U.S. Navy Leap Frogs. The official parachute demonstration team of the United States Navy. The team is part of the United States Naval Special Warfare Command, and is made up of active-duty Navy SEALs, Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen (SWCC) and support personnel.

U.S. Air Force F16 Viper Team and U.S. Navy F18 – Hornet Demo Team. These air combat comand demonstration teams perform precision aerial maneuvers to demonstrate the unique capabilities of these multi-role fighters. They are fast and they are loud, and crowds love them!

Chefpitts. This Stuart, FL based pilot, Clemens Kuhlig, flies a Pitts S1S, built in a garage over a three-year period while he was working as a professional chef—hence the name “Chefpitts”! The show Clemens performs is inspired by the pilots he watched as a kid. Jim Parker, The Red Devils, Leo Loudenslager, Al Hauff, Art Scholl, the French Connection. The Pitts Special is an iconic airplane that lends itself well to beautiful rolling, curving lines, snap rolls, and excellent outside capability.

Redline Airshows. An exciting two-ship formation aerobatic flight team that thrills crowds with a display of skill, nerve and showmanship. Pilots Ken Rieder and Jon Thocker have been flying formation together for more than 12 years. They proudly claim “Redline…the goal…not the limit.”

Greg Shelton Airshows. Made up of the father-daughter team of Greg Shelton and Ashley Shelton, Ashley defies gravity and flies on the wing of a colorful and patriotic decorated bi-wing Boeing 450 Super Stearman piloted by her father.

Round Canopy Parachuting Team (RCPT-USA). A hit with the audience last year, this year the RCPT-USA team returns to perform another unique and interactive WWII Airborne demonstration on the flight line, but with twice the number of jumpers.

Tickets are now on sale online at www.StuartAirShow.com. The website pre-sale price of $10 is good until Labor Day, $15 online through Nov. 5, and $25 at the gate. Veterans and Military pricing is $5; youth, 6-12, $5; Spectator Seating has been reduced to $8; Dirty Flight Suit Party is $115 (limited availability); Beer Garden Upgrade, $25 (limited availability); Bombers Squadron Upgrade, $60 (limited availability); and Premium parking, $20 per day, may now be purchased online, instead of at the gate. Admission for children 5 and under is free.
Each year, the Stuart Air Show provides financial support to area non-profit organizations. Funds are a combination of show profits, as well as contributions by the show’s concessionaire, National Concessions. This past year (2016), more than $25,000 was distributed to the following charitable partners: United Way of Martin County, Road to Victory Military Museum, Buffalo Soldiers, City of Stuart Police Explorers, Venture Crew, Special Olympics, Martin County Community Foundation, Civil Air Patrol, and the St. Lucie Centennial High School NJROTC.
The Stuart Air Show, presented this year by Martin County Airport-Witham Field, Pratt & Whitney – A Lockheed Martin Company, and Sikorsky Aircraft – A United Technology Company, continues the show’s commitment to honoring the past and inspiring the future. The three-day event draws 40,000 spectators annually and is the largest air show in southern Florida.

Treasure Coast Food Bank kickoff
25th annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive

Out2News.com

FORT PIERCE, Fl. May 1, 2017 – Treasure Coast Food Bank invites the community to join in a kick-off party for the 25th annual National Association of Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. The kick-off takes place from 3 to 6 p.m. on Monday, May 8 at Your Plate, 1203 Orange Avenue.

Pick up some fresh produce and enjoy music while learning about Stamp Out Hunger and other programs to fight hunger and poverty across the Treasure Coast. The event also includes several family-friendly activities – a hula hoop contest, rock-painting, and smoothies created on Treasure Coast Food Bank’s own Smoothie Bike in which the rider pedals to power the blender. Treasure Coast Food Bank also will be distributing bug spray to everyone to help prevent the spread of mosquito-borne illnesses.

The 25th annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive takes place on Saturday, May 13th. It is the nation’s largest one-day food collection event, and helps replenish the shelves at Treasure Coast Food Bank and food banks in every community across the country. That day, letter carriers will collect non-perishable food that residents leave in or near their mailboxes.

Last year, the event collected a record 80 million pounds of food, including more than 248,731 pounds, enough for more than 200,000 meals on the Treasure Coast. All food stays in the community from which it was collected. Letter carriers ask that on May 13th, everybody place nonperishable food in a bag and leave the bag in or near their mailbox. The letter carriers collect all the food, and distribute it to the food banks in each community.

“By placing food by your mailbox on May 13th, you are directly impacting the lives of the more than 100,000 individuals along the Treasure Coast struggling with food insecurity.” said Treasure Coast Food Bank President and CEO Judith Cruz. “Stamp Out Hunger helps fill our shelves just as summer arrives and the need for food assistance is at its highest. Please join us at the kick-off party on May 8, and please remember to donate on May 13.”

Human Trafficking is a modern day form of slavery in which human beings are controlled and exploited for profit. The two most commonly known forms of human trafficking are sexual exploitation and forced labor. Trafficked persons come from positions of vulnerability and are predominately children as young as 8 years old. There are 1859 human trafficking cases reported each year and 41% of sex trafficked victims are US citizens – 85% of those are female. Human sex trafficking generates $9.5 billion in illegal profits each year and it’s going on right here in Martin County.

Mimi McCallum’s Art Reflection

Out2martincounty.com

Through my art I aspire to capture moments in time that relate to memories that touch our hearts. I aspire to create images of objects, places and figures with pleasing shapes and energetic color.

My “people stories” are paintings including figure in them. This is a subject I enjoy painting. My people are All People and an experience we can share. The “At the Beach” series provides glimpses of sensual and relaxing times that are the beach. The beach offers a refuge from the routine and mundane. The figures enjoy the warm sun, the wind blowing their hair, umbrellas, towels, sand in their toes and the beauty of the ocean.

SPECIAL OLYMPICS LAW ENFORCEMENT TORCH RUN
MOVES THROUGH MARTIN COUNTY

Stuart – On Friday morning deputies and civilian employees with the Martin County Sheriff’s Office joined together to run in the 2017 Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.

The Special Olympics athletes work very hard throughout the year training for events such as track, equestrian competition, swimming, surfing, golf, gymnastics, soccer, softball, cycling, basketball, and bowling. The torch run has long been an important and very symbolic way in which we help kick off the Olympic Games for these very special athletes.

A big thank you to the spectators who came out to support our efforts during the race by gathering along the run route.

Night Out On Us

Out2News.com

Palm City — If you were one of the lucky beautiful people of Martin County last evening and found your way to Monarch Country and Golf Club you took part in the Symphony At Stuart “Night Out On Us” event.

Yes it was a blatant marketing effort on their part, Symphony of Stuart marketing staff that is, but hey you had FREE food, enterainment and you got to see many new faces.

As the premier senior living community in the region, the Symphony at Stuart community will be welcoming its first residents in early 2017. Our commitment is to set the standard for assisted living and memory care in a community setting.

Often cited as one of “The Best Small Towns in America to Visit,” Stuart is a gem on the Florida Treasure Coast that allows for a wide variety of leisure and recreation – everything from fine dining, live music and theater, to tee times and toes in the sand is well within easy reach. And, while the location is unstoppable, it is our ongoing commitment to our resident’s well-being that sets us apart from the others. There is no real need to ever leave – we’ve thought of everything.

Hey Monarch was the host for the evening sowe need to give them a shout as well.

A community considered ‘Paradise’ by its residents, is situated along the Treasure Coast of Florida in Palm City. A perfect location just minutes from beaches, shopping, theaters, highways and major airports.

Started in 1987 and completed in 2003 the 430 single family homes, 52 golf villas and 44 townhouses provide a comfortable setting in an ivy walled, 24 hour guarded, gated community that provides security to raise a family or retire to and enjoy your sunset years.

Not Just A Routine Traffic Stop!

Out2News.com

Article by: Robin Hall – Out2News

Port St. Lucie – You know that feeling in your stomach when you see those lights flashing behind you when a cop is pulling you over? Yup! That’s the one!

Today on U.S. Federal Highway I in Port St Lucie, I had that happen to me, I had that feeling in my stomach and I wasn’t even driving! Coming back from the Fort Pierce Women’s Club driving home. The officer pulled my friend over.

She knew right away what the problem was,she had just purchased her new license plate the day before but had not put it on because she did not have a screwdriver!

The officer came over to her window and ask for her license, insurance, etc., which she gave him. She asked him if she was being pulled over because the plate was out-of-date (yesterday). The officer replied, “yes.” She told him that the plate was in the car and he asked her to show it to him, which she did.

He then went back to his cruiser and came back with a screwdriver started putting her new license plate on her car. That was too cool! I own Out2News a local online newspaper in St. Lucie County so I thought this is way too cool for this officer to do this, so I asked him if I could take a photo. I took the photo of the “Good Samitarian” act of kindness the Port St.Lucie officers’ name is B. Cuevas. There were four of us in the car before everything was done we were all out of the car thanking the officer and his back up officer B. Saliba, for doing such a good deed. So, you see don’t always need to think that you are getting pulled over and it’s going to be a awful experience, sometimes it’s just too cool.

Thank you once again to the Port St. Lucie Police Department for the kindness and thoughtfulness to four crazy ladies on a Friday afternoon!

2nd Bi-Annual Healing Hearts Event:
An Indian Night to Remember

Jupiter Island — More than 120 guests attended the 2nd bi-annual event to raise funds for Bart’s Blue Star Foundation: An Indian Night to Remember.

Co-chaired by Leila Tauil Kallop and Jennifer Soffan, the gala was held at the exclusive and tropically lush Jupiter Island Club.

Guests enjoyed friendly bidding on an array of luxury items during the silent auction, however, the attention turned to several very special gifts during dinner and the live auction. None other than C. Hugh Hildesley, from Sotheby’s New York, did the honors of auctioning off a 7 day/6 night getaway to a triplex penthouse in Lima Peru, as well as one to an Italian Tuscan Villa located on the famous estate of Villa d’Arceno (setting of the Hollywood film, “Stealing Beauty”). For those less interested in travel, and more so in fine jewelry, a lovely pair of green amethyst and diamond earrings in 18K gold, donated by Tresor, were also available. Those who were not successful in bidding had opportunities to donate to the cause at every level from $100 to $5000, and did so enthusiastically, especially following the presentations given by both the Founder of Bart’s Blue Star, Ginny Luther and DJ Batiste, whose life’s story gave living testimony to the benefits of the programs funded by the Foundation.

Before hitting the dance floor for a night of Indian and American tunes, guests were treated to a show by the Bhangra Dance Team of the University of South Florida, who performed a traditional Indian dance ceremony. Henna tattoo artists and other forms of entertainment rounded out the evening.

This was the second Healing Hearts event hosted by Bart’s Blue Star. Proceeds from the first one, held at a private residence on Jupiter Island in 2015, enabled the BBS Foundation to provide scholarships for training to many teachers, families and non-profits in the Martin and Palm Beach communities. Bart’s Blue Star was founded by Ms. Luther following the violent murder of her son Bart at Fort Hood in 2008. With her background as a life-long teacher and trainer with the national movement Conscious Discipline, Ms. Luther was able to transform her personal tragedy into a foundation which continues to benefit at risk and traumatized children, teaching them the skills to overcome obstacles, solve problems and succeed in their young lives.

A detailed list of the Foundation’s current initiatives is available at www.bartsbluestar.org. For more information about the Foundation and how you too might become a sponsor, donor, advisory board member or obtain a grant application for the 2017-18 funding cycle, please see the group web site at: http://www.bartsbluestar.org or contact Jack Luther, President at 772-486-5788 or Jeanne Dunn, Secretary at (772) 486-4695.

HONOR FLIGHT TO CELEBRATE 80 LOCAL
WWII & KOREAN WAR VETERANS APRIL 8TH

Out2News.com

Thirty Florida State Society
Daughters of the American Revolution to Honor Veterans as Guardians

Stuart — Southeast Florida Honor Flight is set to pay tribute to 35 WWII veterans and 45 Korean War veterans on Saturday, April 8th by flying them to Washington, DC for the day to visit the memorials created in their honor. And for the first time, Honor Flight welcomes the participation of thirty members of the Florida State Society Daughters of the American Revolution who will be acting as guardians for thirty veterans for the special day. The thirty patriotic volunteers, ages 19 to 65, represent many of Florida’s 105 local DAR chapters, including Junior members (under the age of 36) and four members from the Sons of the American Revolution.

The DAR participation in April 8th’s Honor Flight represents one tangible way for DAR members to say “thank you” and recognize our veterans’ service, sacrifice, and commitment to the preservation of our nation’s freedom. DAR’s patriotic mission to support veterans continues among Florida’s more than 10,000 DAR members through ongoing participation in local stand downs for homeless veterans, special visits to local VA facilities, responding to requests for donations, and partnering with local community-based programs.

This Honor Flight is the first of four regularly scheduled flights per year for Southeast Florida Honor Flight and as always, begins very early with veterans and guardians arriving at Palm Beach International Airport about 4:00am. After checking in and boarding the chartered American Airlines Airbus 321, the flight arrives at Reagan National to a welcoming crowd cheering the arriving veterans. With a police escort throughout the day, four motor coaches will transport the group to visit the U.S. Marine Memorial (Iwo Jima), Arlington National Cemetery for the Changing of the Guard Ceremony, the World War II Memorial and the Korean War Memorial.

The contingent to fly to Washington, DC on the first 2017 trip is comprised of veterans from four military branches—Marines (6), Air Force/Army Air Corps (16), Navy (21) and Army (36). Just a few of the wartime positions represented are radar builder, combat medic, bar rifleman, aerial radio operator, B-25 gunner, B-4 navigator and flight instructor. Many of these brave men experienced combat throughout Europe and Asia, and many participated in major battles such as the D-Day Invasion, Iwo Jima, the Battle of Okinawa, the Battle of Leyte and the Battle of Heartbreak Ridge. Regardless of position or geographical assignment, these 80 veterans served the Nation and Honor Flight serves to celebrate each one.

In Honor Flight tradition, the public is invited and encouraged to attend “Operation Homecoming” at Palm Beach International Airport, the evening of April 8th to welcome home the veterans from their day of honor.

Operation Homecoming is always an emotional event for both the veterans and the crowd. Hundreds of people from the local community, including members of the military, community and civic groups, family and friends, gather in the airport, awaiting the veterans’ arrival to give them a true welcome home, a welcome that most never received years ago. Between cheering well-wishers, emotional family and friends and thankful citizens, the veterans receive hundreds of grateful handshakes, topping off a day that most veterans say is one of the best days of their lives.

Signs of thanks, flags, cheers and handshakes are encouraged. Operation Homecoming takes place at Palm Beach International Airport, Level 2, Concourse A/B. The Honor Flight will arrive at PBIA at 7:20PM. Early arrival is recommended. Please come be part of a heart-warming evening! Look out for professional cheers coming from a few Dolphins Cheerleaders who will be in attendance to also welcome the veterans home.

For more information on Operation Homecoming, please call 1-855-FLYAVET (855-359-2838).

As no accessible official veteran database exists with the federal government, Southeast Florida Honor Flight relies on word of mouth, public education via presentations and civic and veteran groups to find WWII and Korean War veterans to sign up for their Honor Flight. If you are, or if you know of a WWII or Korean War veteran who would like to take their Honor Flight (and has not already done so), please either call 1-855-FLYAVET (855-359-2838) or fill out the veteran application online at www.honorflightsefl.org. Southeast Florida Honor Flight is now taking veteran applications from Vietnam veterans, who will become the next group of veterans to be honored.

Just as the DAR members recognize the importance of honoring veterans and acting as guardians, anyone can apply to be a guardian, and Honor Flight always needs them for their four flights per year. For those interested, please visit www.honorflightsefl.org and complete the online guardian application. It is an extremely meaningful day for both guardian and veteran.

Southeast Florida Honor Flight, along with the 133 other hubs in the nationwide Honor Flight Network, is dedicated to flying America’s veterans to their respective memorials in Washington, DC, free of charge to the veteran. With America’s WWII and Korean War veterans now in their later years of life, Honor Flight is truly in a race against time to honor these veterans by bringing them to see their memorials, especially the WWII memorial, which was not completed until 2004. Top priority continues to be given to WWII veterans and terminal veterans of any war.

Other Southeast Florida Honor Flights on the schedule for 2017 are: May 20th, September 23rd , October 28th.

Humane Society’s Pet Therapy Teams
Make Friends At Lyric Theatre

Out2news.com

PALM CITY —  The Lyric Theatre and the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast recently formed the perfect partnership: A dog-related show called Mutts Gone Nuts and volunteers from Misty’s Pals, the HSTC’s pet therapy group.

The volunteers greeted guests in the lobby before two shows and attracted the affection of kids and adults alike. The pet therapy volunteers were Mary Christopher and her dog Kate; Christine Apted and Maggie; Joe and Nancy Wertheim and Karma; Laurie Volpe and Luke, Nancy Bowden and Sydney; Joan Hewitt and Lilli; and Joan Dutton and Sparticus.

“The Lyric was thrilled to have the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast’s pet therapy group greeting our patrons,” said Lyric Theatre Executive Director Kia Fontaine. “It was a perfect partnership as the amazing canine performers of Mutts Gone Nuts are all adopted from shelters and rescues. The creators, Scott and Joan Houghton, are dedicated to spreading the positive message of animal rescue and adoption.”

Jessie Clifford, the shelter’s humane education director, echoed Fontaine’s sentiments.

“This type of partnership is representative of our community outreach and we thank The Lyric Theatre for giving us this opportunity,” she said. “Our pet therapy volunteers visit nursing homes and assisted living facilities, participate in our Paws to Read program, where kids read with a dog at their side, and much more.”

The HSTC’s humane education department also offers shelter tours and obedience and agility classes to the public and organizes a number of educational programs. For more information, visit the website, http:www.hstc1.org.

STUART, Fla. — Through the end of March, Unity of Stuart is inviting the public to bring a new teddy bear to its location at 211 SE Central Parkway. On the last Sunday in March, Unity will give them to Camelot Community Care to bless children being placed in foster homes.

Unity of Stuart congregants are hoping this project will make a difference, however small, in the foster children’s lives, to symbolically let them know they are cared for and loved.

THE ART OF TOUCH

Out2News.comBy Lee Noonan LMT

This is the first of an on-going column devoted to massage

therapy by Lee Noonan, a therapist licensed since 1973 in

New York State and since 2015 in Florida. After 35+ years

of private practice in the heart of New York City—and now

on the Treasure Coast—Lee will be sharing her insights, understandings and experiences.

Therapeutic massage is mostly detective work. The crucial lasting aspect of treatment is discovering the underlying cause of pain, whether acute or chronic. This sleuthing is as important as releasing stuck, painful muscle fibers.

A recent client whose lower back “never ached like this before,” told me all about his new car as I rubbed his sore lumbar muscles (the truth behind a problem often comes rushing out as soon as I touch a painful part). It seemed his back had been hurting for only the last three weeks. When did he get his new car, I asked. Oh, three and a half weeks ago, he answered. I then told him about a wealthy client of mine who owned seven cars, one for each day of the week. The reason for that was a very conscious one: the man understood that each car’s seat was different and placed unique stresses on his body. By changing cars daily—like some people change shoes—his body never got stuck in a chronic painful pattern.

But most people are not rich, and the man with the lower back pain certainly wasn’t. I did suggest that he adjust the lumbar support of the new car seat. He emailed two weeks later that his back had been perfect ever since.

It took almost the entire therapeutic hour before I ferreted out the cause of an elderly woman’s sore hip: her seven-month-old granddaughter who she’d begun caring for each Tuesday. Most parents—grand or otherwise—tend to hold a child on one side habitually, usually with the hip and supporting arm of the non-dominant side in order to allow full use of the dominant hand. But in order to hold a child on one hip, we lift that side of the pelvis, both to support the weight and so the child doesn’t slide off. This creates a pelvic torque that strains ligaments, tendons and muscles. My suggestion was that my client remember to keep changing sides whenever she held her grandchild, allowing the stress to be spread more evenly throughout her lumbar and pelvic musculature over the course of her Tuesdays.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is another frequent complaint these days. New mothers and people who use a computer mouse for many hours a day are often beset by soreness, tenderness and weakness of the thumb and/or wrist. Mothers of young infants are suddenly weight-lifting 10-20 pounds at many different angles, causing pressure on the median nerve at the point where it goes through the carpal tunnel of the wrist. When my son was born, I was the only one of my Mothers’ Group who had no wrist or thumb problems. Years of massage work had strengthened my wrists and hands and prepared me for the burdens of motherhood.

Physical therapy to strengthen the muscles and ease inflammation and nerve pressure is the conservative approach to carpal tunnel syndrome. Homeopathic remedies can also be helpful (consult a homeopath if you are not familiar with remedies). Surgery should be a last option.

Those who get carpal tunnel symptoms from high-density computer mouse use can much more easily alleviate their pain. Simply switch the mouse to the other hand. The first hour or so, you’ll feel pretty clumsy, but the brain adapts amazingly quickly. And non-surgical freedom from pain is worth patience and effort. I have artist clients who were forced by pain to change the position of the mouse, and all were quickly able to achieve fine results with their non-dominant hands

Massage therapy, or as I like to call it, “The Art of Touch,” is extremely effective for many acute or chronic problems. As always, you should first consult a physician to determine the diagnosis and treatment options. Hopefully, for musculo-skeletal issues, your physician will refer you to either a massage therapist or physical therapist to assist your recovery. And don’t forget the value of massage therapy as a preventive to help alleviate stresses before they cause problems!

In my next column, I will address some causes and solutions for the common complaint of a stiff neck.

You may send topics/questions to leenoonan5@yahoo.com. Lee will endeavor to address them in the column whenever possible.

Woman’s Club of Stuart to Support Local S.P.A.M Team

Out2News.comOut2News.com

Stuart — Our fundraising has enabled the Woman’s Club of Stuart to support our local S.P.A.M Team with $2,000 this year. As a sponsor, they have shared the following update with us that you may enjoy reading:

Our students submitted entries for the FedEx Innovation Challenge to compete for $5000. We were required to post our responses to 4 challenges to Instagram or Twitter. Some of the scoring is based on the number of LIKES or RETWEETS we can get. So we are asking you, and your friends, and your acquaintances, and anyone else you can think of to please go to @FRC180 on Twitter and LIKE or RETWEET our 4 tweets. You can’t miss them. They each contain the hashtags #fedexcontest, #OMGRobots, and #FRC180.

The Martin County Fair starts this Friday and runs through the following weekend. S.P.A.M. is an integral part of the Science Center activities and once again we will be there with our robots sharing the exciting message of the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math in our lives. We have made wonderful friends from throughout the community as a result of our presence there each year. SPAM will be leading all kinds of STEM activities including a LEGO building contest. We hope you will stop by and lend your support when you visit the fair.

And right next door to our booth this year will be a new addition to the fair, the Small Bots of Mass Destruction. This exciting tournament is brought to us by our very own alumnus, mentor, coach and sponsor Kurt Durjan and the Treasure Coast Maker Space. The two-day event begins on Saturday, 2/11. So please be sure to add Kurt to your list of “must see” booths.

Work continues at the Pit–two more weeks until STOP BUILD DAY (2/21). If you want to see the robot in its pre-production stage or you want to see drive team practice or you want to see our busy Pit in action, stop by. We’re there every weeknight from 6:30-8 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m. You can reach out to us through this email address if you need help with directions.

Finally, we want to THANK YOU for your support as sponsors this year. Some of you have been with us for many, many years and we can’t thank you enough for your continued financial and in-kind support and encouragement. We have a BIG team once again this year (77 at last count) and as always, travel costs make up the bulk of our budget. We couldn’t do this without you. In addition, we sent out an urgent request for funds for a new trailer last week and we’re pleased to announce that you answered the call. Thank you to this generous community. We’re almost ready to GO MAKE YOU PROUD when we leave for our first regional tournament on March 9-11 in Orlando. This year’s game, called FIRST STEAMworks, is once again challenging and interesting. We can’t wait. Thanks for making it all possible.

Funds raised by the Woman’s Club provide college scholarships for senior girls at Martin County public high schools. This year, $26,000 in scholarships were awarded, and during the past six years, $96,000 has been awarded to 23 high school students.

“Each year, we’ve been able to increase our scholarship support and we hope to do that again this year,” Ms. Pharo said. On the day of the tour, more than 100 Woman’s Club members will assist in the event, by volunteering as hostesses at the homes, directing traffic and organizing the reception.

The Woman’s Club of Stuart began 103 years ago, when Stuart was a new town. The club comprises women united by a dedication to community improvement through volunteer service.

Airspace, President Trump, and the Destiny of
Our St Luice River/Indian River Lagoon, SLR/IRL

Out2News.com

Stuart — Witham Air Field in Martin County is north, just outside of the circles….the circles that designate “No Fly Zones”during Presidient’s Trump’s return home today to Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach. Many Palm Beachers will be flying into Witham who can’t get into Palm Beach due to the flight restrictions. Perhaps as they pass through they will be learning about the vociferous but sleepy little town of Stuart, to their north, with the toxic water problems stemming from discharges from Lake Okeechobee?

Martin and Palm Beach counties have a long history. In fact, Martin County was formed of north Palm Beach County in 1925. Our destiny is connected…

Looking at the circles on the “Temporary Fly Restriction” map above, sent to my husband, reminded me of some other circles that are also causing a stir. Senate President Joe Negron’s proposed circles for land purchase in the EAA. I know you are familiar with that map! I hope President Trump reads the local paper while he’s here. Or maybe he’ll even get a chance to meet with the President of the Florida Senate?

As we know, in today’s world, anything can happen…

A “no fly” zone in a 1-mile radius. Commercial flights that normally would leave or arrive on a straight line from PBIA must instead angle north or south.

A ring of 10 nautical miles bars all private planes from landing at either PBIA or Lantana unless they came from a “gateway airport,” at which they’ve been screened by the Transportation Safety Administration. Any planes that land at Lantana can’t leave until Trump is gone.

A ring of 30 nautical miles allows only planes traveling to or from fields outside the 10 mile ring, all of those closely monitored by air traffic controllers.

Banned at Lantana during visits: all flight training, practice approaches, parachuting, and flights of aerobatic aircraft, gliders, seaplanes, ultralights, gliders and hang-gliders, balloons, and even crop-dusters. Also banned: banner-towing and sightseeing, maintenance test flights, model rockets and aircraft, utility and pipeline surveys and drones.

Artist Karen Leffel-Massengill
Opens A New Art Studio in Jensen

Out2News.com

Adrienne Moore, APR, CPRC
With artist Karen Leffel-Massengill opening her first formal studio in Jensen Beach, Helping People Succeed is working on A Raffle Of Love / Show Your Heart Through Art event as a thank you to the local non-profit organization and to promote the art as a valuable service.

The local artist selected two paintings – Let’s Get Wet and Backlit Bromeliad – to donate the original art work created as a silent auction item. Each painting is valued at $1,400. Tickets are $10 each or 3 for $25, with the drawing at 3 p.m. on February 14th, Valentine’s Day. Tickets can be purchased at Helping People Succeed at 1100 SE Federal Hwy. in Stuart, online at hpsfl.org, or by phone at 772.320.0770.

Leffel-Massengill’s new studio is at The Art Cottages on 3211 NE Maple Avenue in Jensen Beach. She has always wanted an art studio for her art displays and for teaching area residents about art. Pencils and crayons were her constant companions as her family moved around the world. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree from Florida State University, but was sidetracked by the demands of family and she wound up with a nursing career. The painting and childhood dream returned many years later.

With a large career in the art circuits of Florida, Michigan, and other locations, Leffel-Massengill is currently seen in Helping People Succeed’s 2017 Art for Living Calendar, featured in the month of September. Her painting in the calendar is titled Gliding, showing local waterways and skies.

“This Raffle of Love is a thank you to Helping People Succeed for supporting my art and others who are in the 2017 calendar,” she said. “It is a pleasure to be included in the latest calendar edition.”

Leffel-Massengill’s studio opened on January 5th. The artist may be reached at 772.263.6061 or by email at karenleffel@comcast.net.

Helping People Succeed is a local non-profit organization that has been serving the Treasure Coast for over 50 years.

Treasure Coast Food Bank Earns Coveted
4-Star Rating from Charity Navigator

Out2News.com

FORT PIERCE, Fla. Dec. 29, 2016 – Treasure Coast Food Bank’s strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency has earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, the highest rating possible the very first time Treasure Coast Food Bank was evaluated.

“We’re very proud to have earned the top rating given by Charity Navigator,” Treasure Coast Food Bank CEO Judith Cruz said. “We take very seriously not only our commitment to fighting hunger but our commitment to our supporters that our work is done with the utmost fiscal integrity and transparency.”

Since 2002, Charity Navigator, using objective analysis, has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating. In 2011, Charity Navigator added 17 metrics, focused on governance and ethical practices as well as measures of openness to its ratings methodology. These accountability and transparency metrics, which account for 50 percent of a charity’s overall rating, reveal which charities operate in accordance with industry best practices and whether they are open with their donors and stakeholders.

Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator, again upgraded its methodology for rating each charity’s financial health on June 1, 2016. The enhancements to the evaluation further substantiate the financial health of each 4-star charity.

“Treasure Coast Food Bank’s exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” said Michael Thatcher, President and CEO of Charity Navigator. “Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our 4-star rating. This adds Treasure Coast Food Bank to a preeminent group of charities working to overcome the world’s most pressing challenges. Based on its 4-star rating, people can trust that their donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity when they decide to support Treasure Coast Food Bank.”

The Charity Navigator 4-star rating is the most recent of several recognitions earned by Treasure Coast Food Bank in the past year. Treasure Coast Food Bank also recently was upgraded to a Platinum Guidestar participant for sharing its progress and results in fighting hunger, and earlier this year, Treasure Coast Food Bank was named among SLC’s Best Places to Work in 2016.

Humane Society Looks To Foster Out
All Its Animals During The Holidays

Out2News.com

In photo: The Humane Society of the Treasure Coast’s goal is to get every animal fostered during the holidays as part of its Home for the Holidays annual program.

The Humane Society of the Treasure is looking for animal lovers to bring joy to their shelter pets by fostering one or more of them this holiday season. Known as its “Home for the Holidays” program, pick up begins on Tues., Dec. 20, from its shelter, 4100 SW Leighton Farm Ave., Palm City, or its Stuart-based thrift stores, 2585 SE Federal Highway and 1099 NW 21st St.

The HSTC’s goal is to get every single animal at its shelter placed in a foster home as part of this annual program. Individuals must complete the appropriate foster paperwork and requirements before taking a pet home. Starting at 10 a.m., Dec. 20,approved foster families may come to the shelter and choose an animal in the adoption area. The animals must be picked up no later than 2 p.m., Sat., Dec. 24. The foster parents, or “guardian angels,” will be encouraged to help the HSTC find a permanent home for their foster pet. All animals need to be adopted or returned back to the shelter by Wed., Jan. 4, 2016.

The HSTC prefers that participants provide food bowls, bedding and toys for their foster pet, but the shelter will assist if needed. Through last year’s program, the HSTC fostered 25 animals and 10 were adopted. To view the pets currently available for adoption, go online to http://www.hstc1.org.

For those who are ready to adopt an animal, the HSTC is offering a generous discount during the entire month of December as part of the national animal welfare organization Best Friends Animal Society’s “Bring Joy” annual animal adoption campaign. All dog and cat adoptions will be reduced to $25 (normally $125 for dogs and 45 for cats). Adoptions for animals over 7 years old are free.

For more information about the Home for the Holidays program or adoption special, call HSTC Foster Care Coordinator Emily Recco at (772) 600-3220 or email her at erecco@hstc1.org.

Okeechobee Landfill Eagle Rescue

Out2News.com

SCS Engineers Superintendent John Jones made an unexpected discovery during his work day at Okeechobee Landfill, Inc. John discovered an injured American bald eagle on the floor of a cell in the project area. With the help of friends from Arnold’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Center (AWRC), the young eagle was rescued and is now recovering at Arnold’s facility.

No one knows how the eagle became injured, but three eagles were observed earlier in the morning in what appeared to be territorial combat. The young bird had the good luck of being found by John and according to Sue Arnold, the founder of AWRC, “is on his way to a full recovery and will be released back into the wild.”

When asked if the eagle has been named, Sue Arnold said they don’t usually name the rescued animals because their ultimate goal is to rescue, rehabilitate, and return recovered animals to their natural habitat. She suggested, “call him ‘JJ’ since John took the time and effort to help us rescue the eagle, which is awesome.”

The south-central Waste Management Okeechobee landfill is certified by the National Wildlife Habitat Council with 2,000 of its 4,000 acres dedicated as a wildlife habitat. The site will soon become home again to the young eagle “JJ.”

Arnold’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, Inc., is a non-profit 501(c) educational-based wildlife care facility. The Center is dedicated to bringing people and wildlife together to develop a community awareness of the value of Florida wildlife.

Pictured are John Jones of SCS Engineers, Lisa Martin of AWRC, and JJ the rescued eagle.

MARTIN AND PALM BEACH COUNTY FIRST RESPONDERS
ESCORT HONOR FLIGHT

Out2News.com

In photo: The Alicia and Ralph story

Stuart — In the wee hours of the morning on Saturday, Fire Rescue and Law Enforcement Personnel from both Palm Beach and Martin Counties simultaneously escorted and displayed honorary salutes to the WWII and Korean War veterans on board buses headed to Palm Beach International Airport. Few saw the tribute so early in the morning, but for those who did it is meant, the veterans on board, it will have the desired effect. It began a day or honor for these veterans flying to Washington, DC on their Honor Flight.

From the southern rally point in Palm Beach County, the tribute begins at 4800 Linton Boulevard and Military Trail in Delray Beach at 4:00 a.m. These veterans not only received a six-unit motorcycle police, patrol car and fire engine escort but also salutes of honor from uniformed Fire Rescue personnel standing at attention in nine locations on I-95 overpasses along the bus route to Palm Beach International Airport. Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue, Delray Beach Fire Rescue, Boynton Beach Fire Rescue, Boynton Beach Police Department and Lantana Police Department will contribute to the display of respect.

Due to the large number of Palm Beach County veterans on Honor Flights, a bus was organized this year to accommodate their early morning transport. Southeast Florida Honor Flight is proud to have the support of Honor Flight volunteer Samuel Eaton, also a Battalion Chief for PBCFR, who has coordinated the tribute efforts.

From the northern rally point in Martin County, also at 4:00a.m., veterans board a bus at the Martin County Administration Building in Stuart. Veterans departing Martin County for their trip of a lifetime have long enjoyed VIP treatment from the fire department and law enforcement community there. Since the hub was founded in 2009, Martin County Fire Rescue, Martin County Sheriff’s Office, City of Stuart Fire Rescue, and the Stuart Police Department have honored the veterans as they rode the buses out of town, headed towards PBIA. “Martin County’s public safety community has been wonderful to our Honor Flight veterans for many years”, said Todd Tucker, Chairman of Southeast Florida Honor Flight and a Martin County Fire Rescue Lieutenant. Deputies and officers provide a police escort, while the firefighters stage the fire trucks, and stand at attention at each intersection to salute the veterans as the buses travel towards I-95. “The veterans are often in tears before they even get to the airport”, Tucker said. In addition to the roadside displays of respect, at least eight Martin County firefighter-paramedics are on each Honor Flight, volunteering their time to care for the aging warriors.

These Honor Flight veterans will receive the same Fire Rescue and Police tribute escort and route-lined salute for the veterans’ ride home to conclude their journey around 9:30 p.m. the evening of November 19th.

The veterans aboard Saturday morning’s bus rides will join other veterans meeting at PBIA and will be flown to Washington, DC for a day dedicated to honor them and to visit and reflect at the memorials built to commemorate their service and sacrifices. This Honor Flight is the fourth of four regularly scheduled trips to Washington, DC per year for Southeast Florida Honor Flight, based in Stuart, FL.

Southeast Florida Honor Flight, along with the 133 other hubs in the nationwide Honor Flight Network, is dedicated to flying America’s veterans to their respective memorials in Washington, DC, free of charge to the veteran. With America’s WWII veterans now in their later years of life, predominantly in the 90’s age range, Honor Flight is truly in a race against time to honor these veterans by bringing them to see their memorials, especially the WWII memorial, which was not completed until 2004. The next Southeast Florida Honor Flight will be April 8, 2017.

From the southern rally point in Palm Beach County, the tribute begins at 4800 Linton Boulevard and Military Trail in Delray Beach at 4:00 a.m. These veterans not only received a six-unit motorcycle police, patrol car and fire engine escort but also salutes of honor from uniformed Fire Rescue personnel standing at attention in nine locations on I-95 overpasses along the bus route to Palm Beach International Airport. Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue, Delray Beach Fire Rescue, Boynton Beach Fire Rescue, Boynton Beach Police Department and Lantana Police Department will contribute to the display of respect.

Due to the large number of Palm Beach County veterans on Honor Flights, a bus was organized this year to accommodate their early morning transport. Southeast Florida Honor Flight is proud to have the support of Honor Flight volunteer Samuel Eaton, also a Battalion Chief for PBCFR, who has coordinated the tribute efforts.

From the northern rally point in Martin County, also at 4:00a.m., veterans board a bus at the Martin County Administration Building in Stuart. Veterans departing Martin County for their trip of a lifetime have long enjoyed VIP treatment from the fire department and law enforcement community there. Since the hub was founded in 2009, Martin County Fire Rescue, Martin County Sheriff’s Office, City of Stuart Fire Rescue, and the Stuart Police Department have honored the veterans as they rode the buses out of town, headed towards PBIA. “Martin County’s public safety community has been wonderful to our Honor Flight veterans for many years”, said Todd Tucker, Chairman of Southeast Florida Honor Flight and a Martin County Fire Rescue Lieutenant. Deputies and officers provide a police escort, while the firefighters stage the fire trucks, and stand at attention at each intersection to salute the veterans as the buses travel towards I-95. “The veterans are often in tears before they even get to the airport”, Tucker said. In addition to the roadside displays of respect, at least eight Martin County firefighter-paramedics are on each Honor Flight, volunteering their time to care for the aging warriors.

These Honor Flight veterans will receive the same Fire Rescue and Police tribute escort and route-lined salute for the veterans’ ride home to conclude their journey around 9:30 p.m. the evening of November 19th.

The veterans aboard Saturday morning’s bus rides will join other veterans meeting at PBIA and will be flown to Washington, DC for a day dedicated to honor them and to visit and reflect at the memorials built to commemorate their service and sacrifices. This Honor Flight is the fourth of four regularly scheduled trips to Washington, DC per year for Southeast Florida Honor Flight, based in Stuart, FL.

Southeast Florida Honor Flight, along with the 133 other hubs in the nationwide Honor Flight Network, is dedicated to flying America’s veterans to their respective memorials in Washington, DC, free of charge to the veteran. With America’s WWII veterans now in their later years of life, predominantly in the 90’s age range, Honor Flight is truly in a race against time to honor these veterans by bringing them to see their memorials, especially the WWII memorial, which was not completed until 2004. The next Southeast Florida Honor Flight will be April 8, 2017.

Treasure Coast Super Moon

16-nov-big-moon-pt-2

Treasure Coast, Fl. — What is so super about tomorrow’s supermoon?

Last evening, a full moon occured that appears slightly larger and brighter than usual. The reason is that the Moon’s fully illuminated phase occurs within a short time from perigee – when the Moon is its closest to the Earth in its elliptical orbit.

Although the precise conditions that define a supermoon vary, yesterday’s supermoon will undoubtedly qualify because it was be the closest, largest, and brightest full moon in over 65 years.

One reason supermoons are popular is because they are so easy to see — you can just go outside at sunset and watch an impressive full moon rise!

Since perigee actually occured yesterday morning, last night’s full moon, visible starting at sunset, was impressive as advertised.

Pictured here, is a young lady and her optical illusion.

Given many definitions, at least one supermoon occurs each year, with another one coming next month (moon-th). However, a full moon will not come this close to Earth again until 2034

Women in Philanthropy Grant Supports Grieving Families
Through Treasure Coast Hospice Family Support Groups

Out2news.com

In photo: Jeanine Webster is the current chair of Women in Philanthropy (WIP) and Diane Dadko is co-chair of the WIP Grants Selection Committee.

Fort Pierce, Florida – Women in Philanthropy (WIP) recently made an $18,500 donation to the Treasure Coast Hospice Counseling Services ( TCHCS) Youth and Family Program in support of the family support groups that aid families in the community who are grieving from the death of a loved one.

Family support groups provide a formal, structured therapeutic environment for the family unit. They help families identify feelings, utilize healthy ways to express feelings and strengthen family bonds. The counselors leading the groups specialize in individual and family bereavement.

The WIP grant helps provide food and materials for the group activities. Families come together at 6:30 p.m. twice a month. They begin with sharing a meal and having a connection time within their own family and with the other participants. Having this connection time helps provide opportunities for normalizing the grief process.

“During the connection time, all ages are together,” said Jennifer Melvin, Manager of TCHCS Youth and Family Program. “This is the time where families discover they are not the only ones grieving and they don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. There are other families who are experiencing the same thing and can understand what they are going through.”.

After dinner and connection time the families participate in the main activity which may include hands on activities, talking & sharing, games or creating things such as a family shield. The activities are designed to increase positive coping and to encourage healthy expression and communication.

“As the group continues, families begin to be able to laugh again, lean on one another and become stronger and closer than they ever thought possible,” said Melvin.

These family support groups are currently the only ones of their kind on the treasure coast. The groups directly benefit the families involved but are geared to benefit the community as a whole as these families integrate back into their community and interact with others as stronger and self-sufficient people.

“We are so grateful to the Women in Philanthropy for helping us continue to support families walking through their grief journey,” said Melvin.

Treasure Coast Hospice is a non-profit community organization of caring professionals and dedicated volunteers whose mission is to provide compassionate, comprehensive, high-quality care for our patients and those who share their lives in Martin and St. Lucie Counties. Services are available to anyone regardless of their ability to pay. Treasure Coast Hospice palliative, hospice and grief support programs are made possible through the generous support of our community.

Out2News.com

STUART, FL – From January through April, the Martin County Library System will present an arts and education series called Chautauqua South-an eclectic array of artists, authors, storytellers, dramatists, historians, educators, and entertainers.

Tracing its roots to open-air classrooms for Sunday school teachers on the shores of Chautauqua Lake in New York State in 1874, the Chautauqua movement grew rapidly, with summer Chautauquas springing up across the nation. In 1992, led by Chautauqua South core committee chair Nina Taylor, then Executive Director of the Library Foundation of Martin County, Martin County Library System created its own Chautauqua experience in Florida.What began as one month of events has grown to a four-month explosion of programs highlighting the original theme of Chautauqua, described by Webster as “popular education combined with entertainment.”

Chautauqua South represents a culturally rich landscape of offerings designed to appeal to a wide range of tastes. Funding for Chautauqua South is provided by the Friends of the Martin County Library System, Inc. Find the Chautauqua icon in our monthly newsletters, go to our event calendar http://martin.evanced.info/signup and select the Chautauqua South Event Type, or call (772) 221-1403 for more information.

Stuart, FL – Hurricane Matthew left quite the mess for residents, businesses, and government officials throughout several states to clean up. With many focused on removing debris from their yards and public roadways, local beaches had not yet been addressed until Junior League of Martin County members hit Stuart Beach on Sunday, October 16 armed with trash bags, gloves, and an optimistic attitude.

“After the hurricane, I took my daughters to the beach to play and noticed a lot of garbage and other debris littering the sand,” said Brittany Holdy, JLMC Community Committee Chair. “Our beaches are so important ecologically and economically that I knew they needed to be cleaned up sooner rather than later. To help get the job done, the ladies of the Junior League of Martin County rallied to lead our post-hurricane local beach clean up efforts.”

League members and their families donned their sunscreen and JLMC red as they scoured the beach for several hours picking up trash from Styrofoam to bottle caps and cigarette butts to straws and plastic dishware.

“It was great to see so many helping hands cleaning up one of our local treasures,” said Samantha Kayser, a JLMC member. “Together we were able clean up a large section Stuart Beach in just a few short hours. League members are looking forward to cleaning up another beach in the near future.”

The Junior League of Martin County proudly celebrates 25 years promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. As our members embark on another year of serving the community, we are also taking this opportunity to reflect on the impact and success we have had over the last 25 years. The Junior League of Martin County is thankful to all of our supporters, community partners, and sponsors throughout the years, and hope we will have the opportunity to continue to partner together to tackle the issues facing our community and bring about everlasting change. For more information please feel free to visit our website: www.jlmcflorida.org; follow us on facebook; or email us at info@jlmcflorida.org.

Stuart — The Woman’s Club of Stuart began 103 years ago, when Stuart was a new town. The club comprises women united by a dedication to community improvement through volunteer service.

Mary Ellen Costa, chair of the Education Committee of the Woman’s Club of Stuart, reads to preschoolers every week at the Gertrude Walden Day Care Center, 601 SE Lake Street in Stuart. Literacy has always been an important focus of the Woman’s Club, which created and operated for 40 years the first public library in Stuart.

Funds raised by the Woman’s Club provide college scholarships for senior girls at Martin County public high schools. This year, $26,000 in scholarships were awarded, and during the past six years, $96,000 has been awarded to 23 high school students.

In photo: Kevin Sharkey, Mollys’ Dad, welcomes supporters for Molly’s House to the 20th Anniversary celebration “Havana Nights”

Stuart/Sailfish Point — Last evening and celebration of a little girls dream for families she saw in distress when loved ones are sick enough to be hospitalized and they had no place to go.

Havana Nights was an evening of “50’s retro” inclusive with Salsa, Cuban cuisine, casino, and Cuban music and dance.

Molly’s House is a hospital hospitality house that provides temporary lodging for patients and their families who are in a medical crisis and receiving medical care on the Treasure Coast. Molly’s House services Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties. The house has 14 bedrooms with private baths, living room, two kitchens, laundry, chapel and outside areas for relaxing.

For more information about Molly’s House, call 772.223.6659 or visit http://www.MollysHouse.org.

As a bit of an added attraction tours of many of the rooms that have undergone a complete makeover were available by many of the Interior Designers from the Martin County area.

Serenity Gardens are a form of relaxation for patients and their families and the garden in it’s second year provided a beautiful outdoor location for this year’s event. Which included the Healing Fountain funded by the Education Foundation of Martin County and private donors, along with students of Jensen Beach High School.

Proceeds benefit the Molly’s House Adopt-a-Family program that subsidizes room costs for families and patients who cannot make a donation.

House of Hope receives grant from Community Foundation for the Golden Gate Center for Enrichment

Out2News.com

Stuart — House of Hope is pleased to announce it has received a $128,362 grant from the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties. These funds will support the Golden Gate Center for Enrichment over the next three years.

With the help of the Community Foundation’s grant, the historic Golden Gate building will be transformed into a vibrant community Center for Enrichment that will offer programs, classes and information sessions in the areas of education, vocational training, life skills, health and nutrition, arts and culture, library services and more. Access to computers and software will provide technology that is lacking in the community. There also will be information and artifacts to recognize and celebrate the history of the building and the Golden Gate community.

House of Hope, Indian River State College (IRSC), the Martin County Health Department, the Martin County Library System, Habitat for Humanity, Project LIFT, the Martin County Community Foundation and the United Way of Martin County are partnering to develop the program schedule based on their collective data and input from residents and other partners.

“The Community Foundation is proud to support the great work House of Hope is doing with the Golden Gate Center for Enrichment,” said Bradley Hurlburt, President and CEO at the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties. “The Golden Gate Center will further educate, enrich and equip the residents of Martin County.”

The multifaceted project represents the partnership’s commitment to offering a hand up to those who need it. House of Hope CEO Rob Ranieri said “the Center will provide a pathway towards self-improvement and empowerment for participants. We will be offering ways to enhance their education, vocational training opportunities, programming for healthier households and support in developing a plan for where they want to go and how to get there.”

7 Foods to Eat for Sun Protection

Out2News.com

New research suggests some foods have the power to guard skin from the damage caused by the sun’s UV radiation. While a salad is no substitute for sunblock, these healthy foods could add inner protection against sunburn and wrinkles at the cellular level.

Citrus fruits: Citrus fruits have the potent ingredient limonene, associated with a whopping 34 percent lower risk of skin cancer in one University of Arizona study of 470 women and men.

Green tea: This delicately flavored tea is full of antioxidants called EGCGs. Among their health-promoting capabilities: EGCGs stopped genetic damage in human skin cells exposed to UV light in one University of Wisconsin study.

Carrots: Carrots—or any other red, yellow, and orange fruits and vegetables—are packed with carotenoids, and studies show they reduce sunburn intensity.

Red Peppers: Like carrots, red peppers are also especially helpful in reducing sunburn intensity.

Spinach: Leafy greens, like dark green lettuce, spinach, kale, and Swiss chard, are top sources of the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin, which halted cell growth prompted by UV light in animal studies.

Salmon: This fish is a great source of oils rich in omega-3 fatty acids. In a small British study, fish oils guarded against sunburn and DNA changes that can lead to cancer.

Walnuts: Like salmon, walnuts are high in essential fatty acids that could guard against sunburn.

41 MILLION SPEEDING TICKETS PER YEAR!

Out2News.com

Out2News.com

WILL YOU GET ONE OF THOSE?

Out2News.com
Police issue more than 41 million speeding tickets a year. Without a LegalShield membership hiring an attorney to fight your ticket could cost more than $150.

If you receive a ticket this summer LegalShield has you covered.

Snap is a new benefit of the revamped LegalShield app that lets you take a picture of your traffic ticket with your smartphone and send it directly to your LegalShield provider law firm.

You can download the LegalShield app with Snap at the iTunes or Android store today.

Here is what you should do if you are pulled over and how to use Snap if you receive a ticket.

1. Drive safe and avoid speeding. If you are pulled over you should first move safely off the road, turn your interior light on at night and keep your hands on the steering wheel. Avoid taking off your seatbelt, searching or moving around in your vehicle while waiting for the officer. Do not exit the vehicle unless you are directed to do so by the officer.

2. It is important to be polite and cooperative. Avoid arguing with the officer. Comply with the officer’s requests for your name, driver’s license, registration and insurance information. Let the officer know you need to look for your insurance or registration information.

3. Signing the ticket is not an admission of guilt, it only shows that you were provided with a copy of the citation. Save any objections or arguments for court. Ultimately a judge will decide if the ticket is valid.

4. You are not required to consent to a search of your car. If the officer searches over your objection, stay calm and tell the officer you object to the search but do not physically resist the search.

5. If you are issued a ticket use Snap to send it directly to your LegalShield provider law firm. Make sure the image is legible before submitting to the attorney.

6. Once received, your LegalShield provider law firm will process the information and call you within 8 business hours. Submitting your ticket right away helps ensure an attorney is available for your court date and has plenty of time to prepare your case.

7. If you have questions or do not hear back from your LegalShield provider law firm within 8 business hours you should call them directly.

Contact Faith directly at 612-205-6526 to get more information about becoming a LegalShield member. https://www.legalshield.com/?hub=faithjames

House of Hope is fresh!

Out2News.com

In photo: Volunteers Ray Nappi and Jon Ludlam, with some of the red peppers from Florida Organic Farms

House of Hope has received a bounty of fresh food this week.

Many thanks go to the following companies for their fresh and healthy gifts:

Florida Organic Farms International of Okeechobee donated seven pallets of red peppers.

Erneston Produce of Stuart donated nearly 3,000 pounds of bananas.

Ground Floor Farm of Stuart donated several crates of arugula.

This fresh food is being distributed to Martin County residents in need at the main Stuart food pantry as well as House of Hope’s branch service centers — Hobe Sound, Indiantown and Jensen Beach.

The abundance of peppers also was shared with the Treasure Coast Food Bank, which will spread the nutritious, delicious food to other local pantries and hot meal sites.

Throughout 2015, House of Hope distributed 663,000 pounds of food to Martin County residents in need, serving an average of 4,650 people each month.

The House of Hope food pantries are operated on a Client Choice model, meaning that people who qualify get to shop — at no cost — for a full array of grocery products.

The process empowers clients to make healthy choices, perhaps with the guidance of staff or volunteers. Recipes are often available, especially for items that are unusual or in abundance.

Food pantry items typically include fresh fruits and vegetables, frozen meat, bread and pastries, canned and dry goods, peanut butter & jelly, deli and dairy items, juice and other beverages. When available, the pantry also offers toiletries, diapers, cleaning products and paper goods.

In between their full shopping experience, clients can come to House of Hope every day for bread and produce, which has been donated by Publix and Fresh Market.

For people who are homeless, House of Hope offers a “day bag,” which typically contains pop-top, single-portion entrees, vegetables and fruit; juice boxes; cold drinks; granola bars and other snacks; fresh deli sandwiches, if available; and personal hygiene products.

In total, the House of Hope pantry service could equate to about $350 in a month, helping families and individuals meet their nutritional needs while freeing up money that they can point toward other household expenses.

Most of the food in the pantry program has been donated directly to House of Hope. The rest is purchased through donated dollars, especially the meat products.

Food donations range from the massive Stamp Out Hunger food drive each May, to people who donate a grocery bag of buy-one, get-one-free items. And, of course, we often receive delicious, nutritious fresh fruit and vegetables straight from the farm.

Supporting our Community…

Nothing is more American than the county fair. And it’s in that thinking that the Martin County Fair Association see fit to give back to our community. We are probably one of the only 501(c)3 non-profits that actually give cash back to the community.

The fair awards thousands of dollars each year in the form of scholarships. We send money to support the Indiantown rodeo. We buy ads to support high school sports teams. We “Adopt-A-Class” in 4 school classroom each year. During the fair, we often make scholarship donations to other groups who volunteer for us.

We also support in ways other than money. Our buildings and grounds are used every week by over 25 local charities, plus (34) 4-H clubs (including the archery club that shoots in the arena every week), the FFA (Future Farmers of America), the Boy Scouts, the Girl Scouts, the police explorers, the sheriff and fire departments, and many others mostly at no charge. The fairgrounds is a resource FOR & ABOUT COMMUNITY! Ask us how we can accommodate your charity.

Stay tuned next week for more interesting insights into our county fair.

Have a fair day!

The Power of Goal Setting

by Donna McGoff

Most behavior is goal directed. The process of how to reach goals is a skill that children can use throughout their lives. This book evolved out of my persistence in finding a way for helping children help themselves. A child’s personal engagement and investment in the whole process creates higher motivation, inspiration, and energy to achieve a goal. What better way for children to become more responsible and build character for successful management of behavior, aspire to reach greater scholastic achievement, or help draw out personal passion and interests than learning the process of goal setting?

The Garden Club Of Stuart’s

Flower Show And Garden Expo

In photo:   The Hydro-Stacker™, too cool!

Stuart — Close to 50 garden vendors display their beauty at Halpatiokee Park this weekend.

Along with the vendor displays were exhibits from the Martin County Schools Junior gardeners.

These vendors from all over the state are wholesalers assisting our local garden suppliers with sharing techniques and instructions on where and how the local home gardener can obtain the species seen at the Expo.

One of these vendors was Hydro-Fresh U-pick Farms and their “Hydro-Stacker” growing system.

Hydroponics is a revolutionary way to grow fruits and vegetables without the use of soil. Derived from the Greek words hydro (“water”) and ponos (“labor”) – hydroponics literally means “water working.” The Hydro-Stacker™ takes this technology one step further.

Easy to set up and use, the Hydro-Stacker™ is a tower of styrofoam pots filled with non-soil growing media. Drainage holes in the base of each pot create a filtration system, ensuring that the entire vertical stack receives the nutrients it needs. A base-swivel system allows the units to be rotated to achieve sun exposure for all of the plants.

The new Out2 is a photo journal featuring people, “Who they are, what they do and where they do it”. We also try where their “going” to do it.
