o Check out the newspaper and Internet photo-journalism showing athlete Tim Tebow with cult undereye script.

o The palm-tree near the Treasure Coast Hospice Thrift Shop continues to grow with new landscaping. The broken concrete casing burst from the growing tree has been partially removed whereas new soil and turf has been applied as a result from construction of a new foot-care building (concrete block).

The tree continues to more-hugely sprout from the ground only inches away from one of a number of short identification-posts in the area set into the ground that are similar in appearance to yellow gas-line warning-posts, while hugging a squarish concrete electrical pole on SE Ocean Boulevard. No wait -- the warning post is painted sage-green and bears 'AT&T...underground cable' lettering.

The made-lance-like PVC pipe has been decisively bent away from the sidewalk with sharp point now facing the parking lot of the plaza nearby, rather than facing the sidewalk.

o As an opposite-type eyeful, a small 4"X4" square opening mid-roadway in the asphalt on Kingswood Terrace Road holds terrarium-size lush and leafy flora.

o As posted in the laundry room, Kingswood condo complex is planning a 'pool party' during Martin Luther King Day, a totally private affair no doubt, which explains the covered shuffleboard lane as an extension of the swimming-pool deck (and enabling an "innocent infringement" defense).

The former public-housing project has morphed "no pick-up games" into "No Pick-up Trucks, Motorcycles or RVs".

o The Stuart News dated 1/6/2009 gives us 'Legislators may boost traffic fines to patch leaky budget', whereas the vehicular two-license-place (sic) requirement should be reinstated.

o A lawsuit has been filed against Wells Fargo Bank with regard to a (meaning its computer system) fee-imposition method which assesses overdraft fees so as to rake in the maximum possible amount -- a sequencing method. This is the same WFB that raised its overdraft fee for basic checking accounts not from $3.00 to $3.50 but rather to $35.00. Whoopee, I am included in the class action.

The method follows from the also-contested 'success' of the credit-card industry that rakes in cumulative overdraft finance-charge fees even if a credit account is closed as an attempt to avoid those, and that will not generate any account-closure rules which will prevent massive ongoing finance charges applied to closed accounts.
