8C THE PALM BEACH POST SUNDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1997 MSL Board members remain divided over salary issue system, and we're certainly not trying to pick a fight," Allen said, stressing his group's otherwise good relationship with the school board. ; "We' just want to keep the school system as good as it is today." ; pressure may convince one or two board members to change their minds and swing the board in favor of the teachers. That's an effort in which the union may receive invaluable help from the Economic Council and others trying to find a way to end the crisis. "We're not against the school firm by its "final offer" for a 3.5 percent increase, on top of an already-approved 2 percent increase. They point out that teachers have received more than a 10 percent raise over the last two years. ! The union's appeal to the public is a logical next step: Public member Hal Wilson. Several weeks ago, Wilson provided a clue to the board's infighting when he angrily convened a special board meeting to ask district negotiators to return to the table after they had already declared impasse. But the next two meetings didn't resolve much; the union's next proposal called for a slightly higher increase than before, and the teachers still would not agree to consider extending their working hours. The school district held have begun the process of calling in a state mediator to study both sides and propose a solution. After hearing the mediator's recommendation, school board members will have the legal authority to impose a final settlement. But if the union gets its way, that decision won't come without a political consequence. "(At that meeting), every board member will have to state his or her position on the issues and the public will be able to judge them accordingly," said board TEACHERS FromlC Last week, teachers said they will demonstrate at several locations to rally community support. On Friday, they passed out fliers during the Soroptimist International Annual Christmas Parade in downtown Stuart. , On Monday, they say they'll demonstrate between 4-6 p.m. on the south sicte of the Roosevelt Bridge.

Act now, because after December 31, 1997, it's business as usual. The advantage of ownership and the comfort of security Oak Harbor is unlike many retirement communities that charge residents an entrance fee to live in homes they do not own. Instead, members of Oak Harbor own their homes. So they reap the rewards of tax benefits and their home's potential appreciation in value. There is a very wide range of homes from which to choose, and each style is available in several different floor plans. Elegant villas, cottages and condominiums vary in size from 1,175 to 2,850 square feet. With the help of an on-site construction coordinator, purchasers who sign contracts prior to construction have the freedom to literally design and configure the layout of their home in any way they like. Primary to their peace of mind, residents have a relaxed assuredness that comes from the knowledge that Oak Harbor is a completely self-contained and gated community with 24-hour roving security. Each residence is equipped with an emergency call system. And on-site facilities and health professionals are available to provide for both immediate and long-term health care needs. Our Healthcare Center offers assisted-living in a comfortable, homelike atmosphere. In addition, skilled nursing care is available at the highly regarded Royal Palm Convalescent Center, which is under the same ownership as Oak Harbor, and located only three miles away. Caring, responsive management from the recognized leader The last detail to complete this most tranquil and colorful retirement picture is the fact that the community is managed by the recognized leader in the industry, Life Care Services Corporation (LCS). LCS has been actively involved in the planning, development and management of 70 life-care communities nationwide over the past 35 years. And with each project, they seem to set a new standard of stable, responsive and responsible management, which makes everything else possible. If you are interested in more information about Oak Harbor, or you would like to take a personal tour please call 1-800-801-7770. This is not a solicitation or offer to sell. Before making any decision c;,. obtain the appropriate disclosure materials from the developer and vitrei. advice of an attorney. VERO BEACH, FLORIDA - Oak Harbor, located on Florida's south Atlantic coast, offers a retirement lifestyle of comfort and luxury that exceeds even the most discriminating expectations. Far removed from the congestion and crime of larger cities, it is just a short drive from the quaint, seaside shops, restaurants and cultural attractions of Vera Beach, recently recognized as "one of the best small towns in Florida." Yet, as if luxury and peaceful seclusion weren't enough of an attraction, Oak Harbor's greatest charm is its beautiful and unusual "island essence." Although not literally an island in the truest sense of geography, Oak Harbor's lush neighborhood enclaves are separated for the sake of privacy by sparkling water inlets and federally protected estuaries. ' In keeping with the island theme, elegant villas, cottages and condominiums are painted in cheerful Bermudian colors of rose, citrus and turquoise. And decorative architectural accents, including contrasting shutters, white-tiled roofs and fancy cupolas, are all reminiscent of Bermuda's distinctive style. In fact, Oak Harbor feels 'very much like a quaint and remote vacation paradise. Palm trees rustle in the gentle breeze. The air is delicately sweetened by magnolia, geranium and oleander. And a majestic Clubhouse stands at the center of everything, surrounded by a private golf course, tennis courts, outdoor pool and croquet. Living at its finest, service at its best A wealth of amenities and services transform otherwise ordinary, everyday living into the epitome of comfort, luxury and activity. "Beyond the island mystique, the greatest appeals of Oak Harbor are its magnificent homes, incomparable level of service and inviting, social ambiance," says Oak Harbor President Doug Widell. "Our professional Club Services' staff handles all maintenance, lawncare and housekeeping. We even do windows. And we have a Concierge to attend to most any personal request." With these time-consuming duties taken care of, residents have more time to live life to the fullest, enjoying the company of friends or family while engaging in an endless array of stimulating activities. The impressive Clubhouse has a fully equipped fitness center and indoor exercise, pool, plus a game room, art studio, hobby shop, library, auditorium, dining rooms and lounge. Residents can. even take advantage of such conveniences as hair styling and financial or postal services. i .free, i keypad i I ($95 value) Enhance the essential Scott AkrmSeairity I I package with an extrakeypadtlwt you can have installeaat a second entrance for added convenience.
