Nevertheless, DeShazo and Pickle said it
had become clear that the best option for
everybody was for the district to gain land
for water-storage projects and build a per-
manent office on Utility Drive.
“We have a great relationship with the
district and will give them water storage,”
DeShazo said. “In the last couple days it’s
been made evident it’s needed.”

posed additional storm-water storage. Ad-
ditionally, Lake Forest Pointe and Country

benefit, however, is Cashmere Boulevard

If the board approves, the district will of-
fer $166,650 for the water-storage acres.
Until recently, the district had been de-
signing a $1.2 million permanent office.

‘TUESDAYS WITH to much bigger studio
MORRIE’ AT A.C.T. PAGE B7
OVER 3 WEEKENDS
BY SAMANTHA BAITA | Staff Writer
PHOTO COURTESY OF THE ST. LUCIE BALLET
1 “Tuesdays with Morrie”
opens this Saturday at Stu-
art’s popular black box perfor-
mance venue, A.C.T. Studio The-
atre. The play is from a memoir
by newspaper sports columnist
Mitch Albom. It was adapt-
ed as a stage play and opened
off-Broadway in 2002. Accord-
ing to Wikipedia, “Tuesdays
with Morrie” is Albom’s recount
of the time he spent with his
78-year-old Brandeis Universi-
ty sociology professor, Morrie
Schwartz, who is dying from
amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
(ALS). The two had reunited 16
years after Albom’s graduation,
and the story looks at his life in
the years since. What starts as a
simple visit to Albom’s former
professor turns into a weekly
pilgrimage and a last class in
the meaning of life. The name
Morrie comes from the Hebrew
word meaning “my teacher.”
“Tuesdays with Morrie” runs
June 2-3, 8-10 and 15-17. Show
times are Fridays and Saturdays,
8 p.m.; Sundays, 3 p.m. Tickets
are $25. 772-932-8880.
