GRAPPLING FOR CONTROL ... RESERVOIR PROJECT

Centennial High School wrestler Allen Brice-Montas takes down his opponent Clint George of Port St. Lucie High School during a recent competition between the scholastic rivals. CONTINUED FROM PAGE A3

George turned the tables to win the match. PHOTO: MITCH KLOORFAIN usable. And we’re throwing so much fresh
water away, that we’re actually ruining the St.
Lucie River and Indian River Lagoon, two of
the most profoundly diverse ecosystems in
the world. Rather than do that, why don’t we
save it and be able to use it for our growing
population?

“So I think we’re going to contribute to an
overall solution, by doing what makes sense.
I think it’s important, and I think it shows
that cities can be an important part of solv-
ing large-scale issues.”

Oravec also highlights the current project
as another step in the continuum of local en-
vironmental efforts, mentioning the highly
successful septic to sewer conversion pro-
gram in Port St. Lucie and the Eastern Wa-
tershed Improvement Project, a $36 million
system of stormwater treatment areas and
reservoirs in the eastern part of the city.

The entire McCarty project will cost $8 mil-
lion, with a $180,000 yearly upkeep cost. The
first area was funded by a $200,000 alloca-
tion from South Florida Water Management
District’s Cooperative Grant Funding, and a
$425,000 grant from Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (FDEP). Currently
the city is seeking another $644,000 from the
FDEP, to aid in construction costs for area 2.
The approval of this grant is anticipated in
September of this year. 

Getting testy: Debate rages over value of PSA screening

BY MARIA CANFIELD | Correspondent Dr. Raul Storey.

There’s been a debate in the medical PHOTO: DENISE RITCHIE
community for a while about whether pros-
tate-specific antigen (PSA) screening cuts
the risk of death from prostate cancer. A
new study detailed below has just weighed
in on the pro-PSA side, reporting that use of
the test is strongly correlated with reduced
risk of death, but Dr. Raul Storey, a Treasure
Coast medical oncologist, says the debate
still has no clear answer.

Let’s back up. PSA screening, well-known
to men of a certain age, is the most-fre-
quently used way to diagnose prostate
cancer. It measures the levels of an anti-
gen (a protein) produced by the cells in the
prostate gland; the levels are expressed as
“nanograms per milliliter.” A high level may
indicate the presence of cancer.

However, PSA tests can yield “false posi-
tive” results, as there are health conditions
other than prostate cancer that can raise
a man’s PSA levels – including an enlarged
or infected prostate and the presence of
a urinary tract infection. In light of this,
the United States Preventive Services Task
Force (USPSTF) states that “there is con-
vincing evidence that PSA-based screening
for prostate cancer results in considerable
overtreatment and its associated harms.”

The USPSTF actually goes one step fur-

‘GAELIC STORM’ AT
LYRIC THIS FRIDAY STRING FLING

BY SAMANTHA BAITA | Staff Writer DSQ brings a high-energy, electric take on both classical and contemporary music – from Brahms to Bon Jovi – to the Lyric Theatre Feb. 14-15.

1 The audience loved them
on their last visit, so Gael-
ic Storm is returning to the Lyric
this Friday, bringing their interna-
tionally applauded, signature mix
of traditional Irish and Scottish
music, country, rock, folk, wit and
a lot of energy. The Celtic band –
four lads and a lass – got their start
playing in pubs back in 1996, and
were propelled into the touring
scene, says Wikipedia, when they
appeared in the film “Titanic,” as
the steerage band, playing “An
Irish Party in Third Class.” The
band credits their devoted, di-
verse audiences for their success:
The country-music folks adore the
storytelling, the bluegrass-heads
love the instrumentals, Celtic fans
love their devotion to tradition,
and the rockers just love the pas-
sionate way they play. Bring your
toe-tappin’ shoes and fasten your
seatbelt. It’s looking to be a wild
(musical) night. Start toe-tappin’
at 7 p.m. Tickets are $45.
