GC Schools: A growing need


By Barbara Oehlbeck
GLADES COUNTY It's a
known fact that growth in
Glades County has been and is
exceptional, therefore growth of
our public schools is a matter of
necessity.
It's also a known fact that
rumors are flying high and wide
as to how much property has
been sold in Glades County
especially in the Muse area.
There are those in the court-
house who keep up with such


property sales and it's said that
considerable acreage has been
sold; however, as one real estate
agent said, "It's one thing to
hang out a sign that a property is
for sale, but quite another to
write a contract and collect the
money."
Regardless of the properties
that have changed hands, the
fact remains that the education
of our children is of foremost
concern and educational facili-
ties must continue to meet the


demand. The estimation for a
student count the first year at
West Glades was between 150
and 200 students. Yet, the actual
student count the first year was
some 300, and that count for this
current term is expected to be
between 350 and 400.
The one-year-old West
Glades Elementary School in
western Glades County is an
extraordinary example of going
forward. During its first year,
West Glades housed kinder-


garten through sixth grade. As of
this fall term, the school will go
through the seventh grade, and
next year, 2006, through the
eighth.
According to Principal Larry
Russell Luckey, II, there are 24
teachers, six paraprofessionals
plus various aides and volun-
teers. "We have a staff that's pre-
pared for both growth and
change. And we are particularly
proud of the community support
in our PTO (Parent-Teacher


Organization). This is most
exceptional for a new school.
Surprisingly," Luckey adds,
"many of those who have joined
in the support of the PTO have
no children in the school, nor do
they have grandchildren. This is
outstanding! And we are expect-
* ing even more this year. It's a
known fact now that West
Glades Elementary came into
being in just the nick of time

LAKE OKEECHOBEE -
Selected cadets from Okee-
chobee's Naval Sea Cadet pro-
gram recently completed their
Special Warfare Maritime Opera-
tions course at Okee-Tantie on
Lake Okeechobee, the Navy's
SEAL Museum beach training
area, and in Atlantic Ocean off-
shore from Fort Pierce.
Sixteen .cadets from the Tri-

the advanced Maritime Opera-
tions Course. The cadets com-
pleted their SCUBA diving qualifi-
cations including ocean dives,
range qualifications with Special
Operations Command pistols,
and advanced long-range com-
bat raiding craft operations.
The Trident program is
administered locally by the Okee-
chobee County Sheriff's Office as
their official pro-active youth
development activity, and is
directly sponsored by the' UDT-
SEAL Association, the UDT-SEAL
Museum Association, and the
Naval Special Warfare Founda-
tion. In addition, the Trident pro-
gram is directly supported and
funded by the Children's Services

Cadets S. Fullerton, G. Mattson, J. Cofield, and J. Solis
with the SEAL Museum's "dune buggy" in Fort Pierce.
The vehicle is used by the Navy SEAL's in Afghanistan
and Iraq for long range reconnaissance patrols in the
deserts and mountains. The cadets assisted the museum
with several exhibits during the training.


Council of Okeechobee County.
Okeechobee District School stu-
dents enrolled in the Trident pro-
gram receive high school elective
credit in Naval Science for each
year they are involved with the
program. Successful completion
of the program and graduation
from high school qualifies cadets
to enter the Armed Forces at
advanced pay grade levels.
The Trident also accepts some


students from Glades County.
The Trident program is
accepting applications for enroll-
ment for the fall semester in
August. There are a limited num-
ber of openings available. Par-
ents and prospective cadets who
are interested in the Trident
should call (863) 357-1600
before the Aug. 15 for additional
information and to receive an

The monster under the bed


and other sleep assassins


By MaryAnn Morris
Do kids in our computer-lit-
erate, cable-ready households
get enough sleep? School-age
children need at least nine to 11
hours of sleep every night
according to the National Insti-
tute of Health and the National
Sleep Foundation.
Without enough sleep, oth-
erwise polite, intelligent chil-
dren can become frustrated,
impulsive, emotional and for-
getful crying easily, showing
their temper or simply falling
asleep wherever they are. This
applies to both young children
and teens. They're all still grow-
ing and sleep makes a night and
day difference in kids ability to
do well in school and have a
good day.
Crankiness getting dressed,
fussing about eating skyrocket,
when kids are sleep-deprived.


Their attention span drops,
causing more accidents and
lower grades.
Unlike adults, children may
become over-active without
sleep, unable to sit still or pay
attention. These are also symp-
toms of Attention-Deficit Hyper-
active Disorder (ADHD) diag-
nosed today. Like water
spinning down the bathtub
drain, the child's self-control
spirals down. Hour after hour of
lost sleep piling up. At bedtime
they're so wired, sleep is nearly
impossible. Bedtime becomes
its own nightmare. They don't
FEEL tired.
Why?
Dark tells the body to sleep
- light says wake up. Both
computer and television
screens generate light, chang-
ing, flashing light. Noise is a cul-
prit. TV and video games make


noise bouncy, slam-bang,
whiz-pop noise, often played
louder than necessary. A regu-
lar rhythm to the day is a factor.
What to do?
Limit TV and video games.
No more than two hours a day
of quality programming. Keep
evenings quiet for a while
before they need to be asleep. If
you decide to allow TV at all,
censor active TV programs for
quieter shows. Limit video
games. Going outdoors to play
or taking a walk both blow off
steam and set the stage for
good sleep. Allow enough time
for a warm bath or shower and
story or reading time. You might
like it, too!
The rhythm of the day also
affects sleep. Schedule bedtime
and rising for the same time

What's going on in the world of art


Editor's note: Mrs. Ann Tyler is
a well-respected artist and
author, living in the Glades. Her
newest column, "Art Talk", will
run monthly in the first week's
editions of the Clewiston News,
Glades County Democrat, and
The Sun.
Hey! Welcome to Art Talk.
When I was invited to write this
art column for The Sun my first
thought was, what goes around
really does come around
because back in the 70's I wrote
the column Art Talk for The Belle
Glade Herald for several years.
So, here we go again.
If you're not an art person join
us anyway because art is for
everyone! You'll be surprised at
some of the things I'm going to
show you, through the eye of the
artist, about your home the
Glades.
Before I start to fill the lines of
this column with what I hope
will entertain and enlighten you,
let me first take a few lines to
introduce myself to those who
might be thinking, "Who is Ann


Tyler?" I'm the Artist of the
Glades. I took that title for myself
many years ago when I stopped
being just a portrait artist and
realized that my "Giverny gar-
den," Monet's inspiration, was
the beautiful tropical Everglades.
This is my place, the Glades I
was born here, raised here, and
hope to die here.
I can get real excited about
painting Seminoles, alligators,
turtles, exotic orchids, and Beany
Backus Florida skies. You may
have seen some of my work on
the covers of the Black Gold
Jubilee booklets, or in the Bank
of Belle Glade, Fidelity Federal


banks, Everglades Research and
Education Center, different
museums, and businesses
around the county.
I've been teaching the art of
fine oil painting here in Belle
Glade for over 30 years, and the
Glades Art Group is actually the
hundreds and hundreds of
Glades people that have come to
my studio seeking to enrich their
lives through the fine arts. The
Glades Art Group has their yearly
art showing at the Black Gold
Jubilee.
Let me end this first column
by telling you about one of my
favorite artists the caveman.

I first purchased Epsom salt
about three years ago, on the
advice of a veterinarian. He pre-
scribed an Epsom.salt foot soak for
an injured horse. I noticed on the
package that the substance has
many other uses. A little online
research uncovered more uses.
Epsom salt is the corrimon
name for magnesium sulfate
(MgSo4). I have also found it
spelled "Epson salt".
Epsom salt is naturally occur-
ring part of sea salt. About two per-
cent of sea salt is Epsom salt. It has
medical, veterinary, nutritional, and
horticulture uses.
Some common uses of Epsom
salt, found on the Epsom Salt
Council Web site:
A foot soak (for people or
horses): It soothes sore muscles,
draws toxins out of sores and helps
reduce foot odor. Mix one cup
Epsom salt to one-gallon hot water.
Soak for 20-30 minutes, twice a day.

UF experts help bring agriculture to classrooms


GAINESVILLE To help Flori-
da schoolchildren understand
farming and its impact on their
lives, University of Florida experts
are contributing to a statewide
program that enables teachers to
incorporate agricultural educa-
tion in a variety of courses.
Florida Agriculture in the
Classroom, or FAITC, offers free
or nominally priced materials suit-
able for students from pre-K to
through grade 12 to public and
private school teachers, said Lisa
Gaskalla, executive director of the
program. Although the program
is housed at UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences, or
UF/IFAS, it is an independent
organization funded by sales of
the agriculture specialty license
plate, and supported by UF/IFAS,
Florida agriculture industry
organizations and' the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services.
"Many children think food
comes from the grocery store,"


Gaskalla said. "Farming may be in
a family's background, but it's
generally 'two or more genera-
tions back. For us, the challenge is
to make agriculture relevant to
these kids, and provide informa-
tion in a form that's practical for
teachers to use."
FAITC offers an array of grade-
specific lesson plans that use agri-
cultural topics to teach language
arts, math, science and social
studies lessons, she said. A typical
example gives students citrus
juice production data and teaches
them about percentages by ask-
ing them to calculate how much
production has changed from
one year to another.
The program includes four
other features, Gaskalla said. One
provides grants to pay for school
gardens and agricultural field
trips. Another brings small lend-
ing libraries called Ag Learning
Barns to schools, where teachers
can check out agriculturally
themed books, puzzles and


videos for students.
The third feature, AgriSmarts,
has officers from The National
FFA Organization visit schools to
discuss everyday items that come
from the farm, she said. The


fourth, Ag Literacy Day, brings FFA
officers, farmers, ranchers and
industry representatives to
schools to read a designated chil-
dren's book about agriculture to
students.

Did you know that the prehistoric
clans supported their artist, and
they were amazed and enthralled
with the drawings on the cave
walls. These weren't some scrib-
bling by a lower intelligence, but
ecstatic drawings that were
15,000 years ahead of their time.
Surely a sign that man wasn't
"monkeying around" way back
there in those cave days.
I certainly realize that the sup-
port of my Glades community
has made it possible for me to
become a professional artist.
They've been with me all the
way, buying my work and
encouraging me to be the Artist
of the Glades. I'm so glad that I
was born early enough to per-
sonally know our early pioneers.
I've written and illustrated a book
about the history of this last fron-
tier: The Glades. Torry Island Boy
of the Everglades is on sale at the
Belle Glade Chamber Commerce
and you can check it out at your
local public library.
Hope you'll join me for the

Glades County




is important


By Mark Young
The most common complaint I
receive is the dissemination of
information from different counties
and would like to take a moment to
clarify our newspaper for those
who do not realize that we are
actually three papers in one.
Our staff is responsible for the
publication of the Glades County
Democrat, the Clewiston News,
and The Sun, which covers the
cities of Belle Glade, Pahokee, and
South Bay.
The design of our three papers
is to provide local coverage on the
front page, the opinion page, and
the school page, with the remain-
ing pages geared towards regional
news and issues. The reason why
Glades County citizens read police
news from Hendry County and
Western Palm Beach County is
because page five is open for all
police agencies in our coverage
area to submit their news and
arrest reports.
Glades County has the same
opportunity to do so, but to date,
have provided little information.
Our full-time staff consists of
myself, and two reporters. My
duties, in editing three newspapers,
keep me fairly tied up in our Clewis-
ton office. I have one reporter in the


Belle Glade area and one reporter
to cover both Clewiston and Glades
County.
Due to staff transitions, Glades
County news coverage has been
hurt, but we are developing the
most efficient means possible to
bring Glades County readers the
news theywant and deserve.
I invite the communities of
Glades County to get involved with
their community newspaper. I ask
for cooperation from law enforce-
ment agencies and the school dis-
trict in providing us with informa-
tion and story ideas. But most of all,
I encourage the citizens of Glades
County to work side by side with us
in producing a quality product, in
which we can all call our own.
We encourage submissions and
welcome potential "stringer"
reporters to let us know what is
occurring in Glades County, as we
have no staff members currently
residing in the area. Make no mis-
take that Glades County is impor-
tant to us. When I assumed this
position six months ago, I made
Glades County a top priority, but
have only recently settled staff
issues. It is my sincerest desire to
provide Glades County readers
with the news you deserve.
Help us to help you.


Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the MooreHaven/Glades issues blog at httpV//newsblog.info/0903. It
is a hometown forum so visit the page as often as you would like and
share your comments (but no personal attacks or profanities, please).
You can also make a comment by calling our Speak Out 24-hour
opinion line at 946-2002. Comments will be published in the newspa-
per as space permits.
UTOPIA GONE TO RUIN: An open plea to all new and future residents
of Glades County. PLEASE remember WHY you originally wanted to
move into this enchanted area? With the sudden rapid growth boom of
our Utopia, I am quite sure it won't be long now before we lose it all and
become just another Miami/Fort Lauderdale. Too bad so many of these
newcomers just won't assimilate into our lifestyle, but rather feel the
need to have all the "big city" trappings and conveniences in our rural
paradise. There's big cities everywhere, but so few places like ours exist
today. Preserve our way of life before it's nothing more than a memory?

LOSING SERVICES: After attending the last city council meeting and
found out that the EMS station is moving out to the road department
because of the lack of funds:They are now down to twoEMS in the coun-,
ty! Why are we losing the EMS and we still have.twgaFire Departments in
the city limits. Why not put the County Fire Department out at the road
department and keep the EMS in the city whereit belongs. If we don't
start speaking up about these matters we're going to be in deep trouble if
we need the EMS in a hurry. How many deaths are we going to have
before they change their minds and give us the services we are paying for.


When the good guys don't seem to win; what then?


The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church,
Clewiston
A guy defined "television" as
"the ox in the living room where
the good guys fight the bad guys
and the good guys win on every
show but the 11 p.m. news."
There seems to be some truth
to that claim to the surface, but I
don't believe it. I've seen news
about people who seemed to
get off when everyone felt they
did something wrong. People
are disappointed, feeling that the
person is really guilty and should
be punished. My thoughts were
more likely to be "not this time."
I take solace in knowing that
the same persons keep coming
to the attention of the authorities
when they are really out of line. I
notice that the name keeps com-
ing up again and again in the
news, and every so often the cir-
cumstances change and some-
thing happens. When the per-
son is involved in a one-time
only situation, and they learn
from their experiences, they
seem to fade back into the
appropriate annoying to let life


continue as it should.
If they take the attitude that,
"I got away with it once, I'll get
away with it again", they're
tempting fate and asking for real
trouble. There is a great Biblical
parable about the wheat and the
tares, or the wheat and the
weeds (Mathew 13:24ff).
A man sows good seed in his
field but when
the wheat
sprouted up,
weeds also
appeared. His
servants ask
about pulling
up the weeds,
but the man is
afraid that in
pulling up the Rev.sSamuel
weeds, the S.Thomas
wheat will be
uprooted as well. He advises,
"Let them both grow together
until the harvest." The weeds
will be separated when the
wheat has formed and has
strength enough to stand on its
own.
In reality, we're all a combi-
nation of good and bad and our
salvation rests not in our good
deeds (real or imagined ones!),


but in our slowly growing
toward the good. I believe a big
part of seeing the just prevail is
having patience to let things
work out as, they should. In the
parable, it is obvious that the
weeds are there and should be
eliminated. The owner of the
vineyard shows patience he
knows how things will come out
and knows that the good can be
weak at times too. In his wis-
dom, he sees that it will work
out, and because he firmly
believes that the good will tri-
umph, he is willing to wait.
There are many times that we
don't like to wait, and I'm one of
the first to want things to hap-
pen NOW! I know though, that,
things don't always happen as
I'd like them but I also know that
one day they will work out, as
God wants things to be. I don't
know about the outcome of
some of the conflicts I hear
about nightly on television, or
know about how many people.
will suffer in the meantime. I
have only a limited knowledge
of economics and see, shifting
patterns around the world when
it comes to buying selling, man-
ufacturing and trading.


I see the hand of God at work
in past conflicts and see correc-
tions taking place in the industri-
al sector. I see the sarrfe people
appearing in the public eye and
watch the pressure on them
change their views as time goes
on.

There was another saying
that I heard a long time ago that
gives me hope in the midst of
everything; "The mills of God
grind slowly, ,but the grind is
exceedingly fine." When it
seems that the bad guys are win-
ning or that things are getting
worse, I can say to myself, "That
maybe for the moment."
Then every once and awhile, the
wrongdoers are caught in their
own schemes and they suffer for
them. Those are the moments,
which affirm that it is God who
is in control, finally, and we get a
reminder about just whose way
we're supposed to follow. Every
once and awhile the good guys
win on the 11 p.m. news too,
but that's how it is supposed to
be. That's how God has destined
it to happen.


Letters to. the Editor


Thank you GCSO
Dear editor:
Who says you can't. good
health care at home? I'm living
proof that you can.
I like to thank the staff at
Hendry Regional Mem6rial Hos-
pital staring with the emergency
room staff,, dr. Arnold Moss,
M.D.,- bonnie winter, R.N.,
Manon Thivierge, R.N., and
Wanda Croffi, R.N. These won-
derful people were on duty
Thursday, July 7, when I walked
into the emergency room.
I was very ill, but didn't know
just how ill I was at that time. I
thank God for getting me to
them alive and them for keeping
me alive. I credit these profes-
sionals with saving my life.
We are all blessed to have
such a well educated, caring
staff at our small community
hospital. I also would like to
thank the nursing staff. They are
Carl Corents, R.N., Deborah Ful-
ford, R.N., Celena Oliveras, R.N.,
and Sandra Haynes, C.N.A. ,,
The physicians, Dr. Arnold
Moss, M.D., Dr. Mohammed
Kabbesh, M.D., and Dr. Fedele.
Thankyou to each of them.


I'd like to say to the residents
of Hendry County to put to rest
the rumors and myths that you
can't get good medical care at
home. You can and will receive
quality medical care at our small
community hospital. Each and
every member of every depart-
ment had a hand in making my
stay as comfortable and pleasant
as possible under the circum-
stances, from Angela Holligan in
the lab, to Angelia in housekeep-
ing, to Mike Usher in admitting.
Thank you to all.
I'd also like to thank my fami-
ly and friends, as well as mem-
bers of the Glades County Sher-
iff's Department for all their
thoughts, prayers, and phone
calls.
Sincerely:
Laura M. Gay

Moore Haven since 1965, and Sincerely:
until recently the Democrat Barbara Brown


WHO LET THE DOGS OUT: Why do I keep seeing the dogcatcher,
truck at traffic accidents? This isn't just in the day time either, but at all
times during the night and on weekends. If he can find his way the acci-
dents why can't he find the stray dogs that everyone sees in town? This is
a waste of taxpayers' dollars and needs to be stopped.

SOMETHING STINKS: What is going on with the landfill issue? I think
the county commissioners were fools for letting the deal with Waste Man-
agement slip through their fingers. Waste Management was going to take
the garbage and haul it to the regional landfill in Okeechobee. We could
have closed the landfill here and not had a landfill at all. With the prices of
real estate going up, why would we want to put a big landfill in our rural,
environmentally-sensitive county? Who wants to live next to a landfill?
Waste management was going to put a glass recycling plant in which
would have provided some jobs and not caused any pollution. You blew it
Glades County Commission. I won't forget this, come election time.

DO SOMETHING BESIDES TRAFFIC STOPS: I want to know when the
sheriff's department is going to do more than write speeding tickets. Six
businesses on the north.side of 27 have been robbed in the last month
and one of them twice. Anyone who knows anything about these rob-
beries please step up and do the right thing. You could be next. Druggies
and thieves don't care who they take from.

TIME FOR CHANGE: It's not just the county that doesn't want to see
growth but the city of Moore Haven as well. This town can't afford any
more poor people. We have about 20 percent of the people in the city
paying 100 percent of the taxes. Where else in the state can you live in a
singlewide trailer outside of a trailer park? Most of these are on single lots
and homesteaded, which means there is no taxes. Everybody complains
about the lack of funds to improve the roads, schools and public ser-
vants. Why do we have two fire departments in the city limits? Come next
election let's get the good old boys out of office and make some changes
around this town.

WHATACHANGE: Over the last fewyears MHHS has become a joke!
I am looking around for answers but can only seem to find one, the
MHHS Staff! There are only about 450 students 7-12 and no one seems to
be able to take advantage of such a small number! If our school staff
doesn't get their heads out of there (behinds), the future of Glades Coun-
ty is going to be a bunch of low-lives! This is my last year in school and I
can remember how my friends and I use to dream of our senior year! Boy
was my dream bubble popped! I look around at my classmates and real-
ize they are all like me...they desire some kind of school pride and spirit!
Unfortunately there is none!
Most students come to school stoned or hi and the faculty never
notices! Wanna know why? Because they only pretend to care! The real
truth about most of the MHHS Faculty is that they are there for one, of two
reasons; a paycheck or their retirement! The school system continues to
waste money on silly gift cards for good behavior when they could be
spending money on getting students more active in school activities I
mean look at us; we have the facilities to have so many different clubs
and organizations. When I was a junior I tried to get a Drama Club started
and amazingly couldn't get any teacher support. That explains it allI
Maybe instead of trying to bribe the students to make good grades & stay
out of trouble with gift cards and BBQ's, you should look back 10 years
and see how well things worked without the expensive bribes! Want
some even more simple answers; ask the teachers that have been there
to witness the change! Instead of focusing on bad mouthing the two
teachers that were senior class sponsors for years, ask them for advice!
Wake up Moore Haven we have lives on the line

Pet Corner


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. How can
you tell when your dog has arthri-
tis? Jessica in Belle Glade.
A: Hey Jessica, that's a very
commonly asked question by
many of my clients! Most dogs,'
and humans too, will eventually
suffer from some form of arthritic
pain as time goes by. Since dogs
can't tell us if they are uncomfort-
able we need to be aware of cer-
tain signs. Some of the things that
dogs will do when' they have
arthritis is: Acting slower in gener-
al, taking a long time getting up
from a good, nap, having difficulty
with going up stairs, and some-
times limping. The best thing to
do is to talk to your veterinarian. I
can sometimes feel arthritis when
I palpate a dog. The biggest help
to diagnose arthritis in a pet is lis-
tening to what their owner has to


say about how the pet has been
acting. In either case I usually rec-
ommend anti-inflammatory med-
ication. My favorite one is a prod-


uct called Metacam. It is once a
day and dogs love the flavor!
Great question Jessica. Take
care, Doc Savvy.
Q: Dear Doc Savvy. I am wit-
ting to get an opinion. Earlier this
month we applied Frontline on
our P6meranian dog. I don't think
it's working very well because she
seems to still have fleas. Do you
have any recommendations, to.
help? Signed, "Please help in
Royal Palm Beach!"
A: Hello there, "Please help in
Royal Palm Beach!" You are not
alone here, so don't worry, there
are a few things you can do. First
of all make sure the shampoo you
use to bathe your dog is compati-
ble with Frontline. It has to be a
soap-free product. Also, keep in
mind that Frontline is not some-
thing that repels fleas, it acts as


something to kill them when they
land on the pet and it is not imme-
diate. It may take several hours for
the fleas to die. There are two
other areas that need to be treated
for proper flea control in the
home, and in the yard. It is very
important to control the fleas in
the complete environment in
order to get good flea control.
Remember we live in one the
biggest flea havens in North
America, so going the extra mile
is imperative. Hope that helps.
Take care, Doc Savvy.

Arrests break up Internet "pill mill" operation Start NewCareer in Your New Job in Just 4 weeks!


MIAMI In Florida's largest
state prosecutions of an organiza-
tion filling Internet orders for con-
trolled drugs, state agents arrested
nine people on charges they oper-
ated unlicensed Internet-based
"pill mills," Attorney General
Charlie Crist and Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement Com-
missioner Guy Tunnell
announced.
The defendants' operation,
one of the first of its kind broken
up in Florida, filled nationwide
orders for powerful painkillers
and other medications without
prescriptions or pharmacists, the
officials said.
The South Florida-based crimi-
nal organization, which allegedly
was headed by Abel Rodriguez of
North Bay Village, is accused of
illegally filling more than $10 mil-
lion worth of Internet drug orders
since late 2003. The vast majority
of the drug distributions were for
the pain killer hydrocodone, but
also included alprazolam, phen-
termine and other prescription
drugs.
More than 650,000 pills, valued
at $1.9 million, have been seized
by members of a Diversion
Response Team task force.
Authorities have also obtained the
forfeiture of more than $2.2 mil-
lion in cash and property, pd the
state Department of Health has
issued emergency orders halting
activities at licensed pharmacies
involved in the operation. The
investigation is continuing.
"Internet pill pushers operate
without regard to the law or med-
ical necessity, and certainly with-
out regard to safety. Their primary
focus is on making a quick buck,"
said Crist. "There is no place in
Florida for these kind of drug deal-
ers, and the Diversion Response
Team has done an outstanding job
of shutting down this operation."
The arrests were the culmina-


tion of "Operation Backroom," a
nine-month investigation by the
Miami-area drug Diversion
Response Team.
The task force included repre-
sentatives of FDLE, the Attorney
General's Medicaid Fraud Control
Unit and Office of Statewide Pros-
ecution, the U.S. Drug Enforce-
ment Administration and the state
Department of Health.
"Operation Backroom is a
great example of the success that
can come from inter-agency
cooperation," said FDLE Commis-
sioner Tunnell. "By working with
the Attorney General's Office of
Statewide Prosecution, their Med-
icaid Fraud Unit, Florida's Depart-
ment of Health and the federal
Drug Enforcement Administra-
tion, this collaborative effort has
' produced results that none of us
could have gained through a sin-
gle, individual effort."
Added DEA Special Agent in
Charge Mark R. Trouville, "Drug
traffickers who pursue their illegal
business via the Internet are no
different than street corner drug
peddlers and DEA, along with
state and local authorities in the
Miami area, consider pharmaceu-
tical drug diversion a priority and
will not tolerate cyber drug traf-
ficking."
The nine suspects were picked
up in early morning sweeps
throughout Miami-Dade County,
and a tenth defendant was being
sought out of state.
Among those arrested were
the organization's alleged ring-
leader, Abel Rodriguez, 48; his
wife, Nuria Rodriguez, 48; the
couple's sons, Erik Abel
Rodriguez, 24, and' Kris Abel
Rodriguez, 22; and the organiza-
tion's operations manager, Emilio
Urratia, 53.
Bonds for the 10 defendants
total $51 million. All those arrested
in Miami-Dade were transported


to the Turner Guilford Knight
Detention Center.
Authorities said the group
operated at several licensed and
unlicensed locations throughout
Miami-Dade County to fill Internet
orders that were not accompa-
nied by legitimate prescriptions.
The investigation showed that, for
example, customers paid about
$200 for an order of 60
hydrocodone pills, which the
defendants purchased through
their shell pharmacies for about
$7 from a pharmaceutical whole-
saler. Agents estimate that each of
the operation's locations filled at
least 2,000 orders per week.
"Any practitioner who endan-
gers the health or safety of Floridi-
ans should be fully investigated
and disciplined accordingly," said
Department of Hbalth Deputy Sec-
retary for Health Nancy Humbert.
"DOH is proud to have been a part
of this collaborative effort to com-
bat criminal activity that puts the
public's health at risk, and we
implore consumers to use the
resources we have in place to veri-
fy the status of their health care
provider's license to ensure they
,are receiving quality health care."
The defendants allegedly used
several licensed pharmacies,
including Nuria's La Familia Phar-
macy, JR Pharmacy, K&N Group
and International Latin Medical
Corp., to order and receive large
wholesale shipments of various
medications. The investigation
revealed that several of the phar-
macies never opened for legiti-
mate business and were only
being used as "fronts" or "shell"
businesses to order the medica-
tions.
Once the medications were
received at the various pharma-
cies, they would.be shipped to
other locations throughout South
Florida where the pills would be
counted, packaged, labeled and


prepared for distribution.


Some of those addresses were
used on the mailing labels when
the pill packages were taken to
legitimate couriers for shipment to
customers.
Investigators found no valid
prescriptions for filled Internet
orders; in some instances, the
only requirement imposed on the
person requesting the pills was
completion of an Internet ques-
tionnaire. Investigators also said
the defendants who filled the
Internet orders, at times, used
unsanitary back rooms at the
"shell" businesses to fill the
requests. The defendants were
.not licensed pharmacists, nor
were they licensed in the health
care profession. Investigators said
the pill bottles they seized were
not properly labeled.
Conviction for conspiracy to
commit trafficking of 28 grams or
more of hydrocodone carries an
automatic 25-year minimum
mandatory sentence. In addition
to the 10 suspects arrested today
in Miami-Dade County or sought
out of state, another man, Jorge
Luis Salazar, 22, is a fugitive being
sought for arrest. The arrests bring
to 22 the total number of individu-
als who have been arrested in the
case over the course of the investi-
gation, including 12, who were
arrested earlier this year.
Florida's Diversion Response
Teams were formed in July 2004
following legislative authorization.
These teams currently operate
throughout Florida and are based
in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Orlan-
do, Fort Myers, Tampa, Tallahas-
see, Pensacola and Jacksonville.
The goal of the team's is to work
with other state, local and federal
law enforcement and regulatory
agencies to combat crimes con-
nected with the organized diver-
sion of pharmaceutical drugs.


SATOP outreach program has free consultation


Not every company can
afford their own private engineer
and when problems arise and
service is needed the company
ends-up paying a pretty penny
for consulting fees. Not so if you
check into Space Alliance Tech-
nical Outreach Program
(SATOP) through the Hendry,
County Economic Development
Council (HCEDC).
A contract for 40 hours of free
consulting service between
SATOP and HCEDC is at your dis-
posal. Most problems can be,


solved in those 40 hours. Plus,
you end up with your own pri-
vate engineer, or team of engi-
neers, who work tirelessly to
help you solve your problem.
For your 40 hours, usually far
quicker, you get your problem
analyzed and the solution identi-
fied. The consultants are scien-
tists who have earned their cre-
dentials working on the NASA
space program over the years
and they take their knowledge to
apply day-to-day technical prob-
lems that all of us confront from


time-to-time. Access to their
broad based technical expertise
is a big plus for us. Don't think of
these scientists as too "High
Tech" for you and don't think
your problem is too insignificant
to address. No problem is too
small for the SATOP team.
SATOP is a state-run aid proj-
ect and has been helping small
business since 1995. The pro-
gram went national in 2001 and
receives over $3 million a year in
'funding. The economic impact
of their services is far reaching


and in August of 2004 they
reported that over $134 million
total has impacted the economy
of our nation.
Local businesses like South-
ern DataStream of LaBelle have
taken advantage of this service
and received help solving their
problems. Why not give us a call
today to discuss how you can
take advantage, too.

Fighting Lupus




and promoting


good wi

By Mark Young
CLEWISTON Father John
Dingle, a former Clewiston minis-
ter, is traveling across the Western
Hemisphere battling the ravages
of Lupus, while promoting good
will between Florida cities and
Brazil.
Father Dingle was recently
granted citizenship in Brazil and
now holds dual citizenship as an
American, allowing him to travel
freely in both countries. As an
emissary of both countries, Father
Dingle is looking for ways to unite
the peoples of America and Brazil.
"I'm looking for something that
bring people together," he said.
"The people of Brazil have no idea
about foreigners. They meet a for-
eigner and they come up and want
to touch them it's an amazing
sight. I want to bring together sis-
ter to sister, brother, to brother,
church to church."
Father Dingle specifically tries
to bring professionals of America
and professionals of Brazil togeth-
er for an exchange of ideas and
goodwill conversations. He is ask-
ing anyone who may be interested
in chatting with counterparts in
Brazil to e-mail him at fatherd-
ingle@hotmail.com.
What brought Father Dingle to
Brazil was his tireless campaign
against Lupus, a debilitating
immune disease that is almost
impossible to diagnose.
He first came became aware of
the significance of the disease
while ministering in Puerto Rico
and came across four individual
cases. Father Dingle began to
understand the complexities of the
disease when he contacted med-
ical professionals in the states.
"But over time, I learned that
what we know about Lupus isn't in
the books," Father Dingle
explained. "We were told that
Lupus mostly affects young
women and I was told that we
(America) weren't doing too much
about Lupus. So, I bought a mobile
home and traveled the country."

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


11 to all


Residents around the lake area
will likely remember Father Din-
gle's mobile home with "Lupus"
written on the side and his efforts
to bring awareness about the dis-
ease to all
those who
came into con-
tact with him.
So, what
brought him
back to the lake
area?
"I think
most people
probably thing Father John
I've passed ingle
away," he H. Dingle
joked. "But I'm
just here to visit a few friends and
try to get the word out that I want
the people of Florida to get to
know the people of Brazil."
Father Dingle's battle against
Lupus is providing invaluable
information for the few medial
researchers who are investigating
the disease. It was previously
thought to strike a selected gender
and age, but through Father Din-
gle's own research, he feels like it
could be more of an environmen-
tal issue.
"I've traveled to different areas
and what I'm finding is that there
are pockets of the disease in cer-
tain areas," he said. "It seems to
strike certain environments and it
strikes men and women, young
and old, red haired or black
haired."
Father Dingle is one of the few
individuals, who are not afflicted
.with the disease, who is single-
mindedly focused on probing the
mysteries of Lupus, a disease that
appears to mimic other diseases in
their symptoms, but is often asso-
ciated with extreme fatigue.
Pockets of Lupus exist quite
predominately around the lake
area, according to Father Dingle.
Ongoing research is expected in
establishing the similarities of the
environmental conditions where
these "pockets" or outbreaks
seem to occur.


Submitted to INI/Clewiston Animal Clinic
Kim Fielder, from the Clewiston Animal Clinic, holds the
dreaded Bufo Toad, a frog, which carries enough toxins that
can kill a small animal.



Keep pets away




from dreaded




Bufo Frogs


By Kim Fielder
After a phone call was
answered at the Clewiston Animal
Clinic, regarding a puppy that may
have come into contact with a large
frog in a small kiddy pool, we made
a trip to the house to find an
extremely poisonous cane toad
(Bufo Marinus). Luckily the puppy
hadn't come in close enough con-
tact with the toad.
When we got back to the CAC,
the doctors that were present
described to us that it's the largest
of Florida frogs and toads. When
this non-native species is threat-
ened, it secretes a highly toxic,
milky substance from its large
glands in the back of the head. This
secretion can kill cats and dogs if
they ingest it.
These toads became abundant


in our area during the rainy sum-
mer months when pets seem
exceptionally attracted to these
slow hopping creatures, especially
at dusk. When your pet grasps or
licks the toad, it causes the toxin to
be secreted into their mouth where
it absorbs through their gums and
stomach lining.

Death can occur as fast as 15
minutes, if left untreated. Symp-
toms of a poisoned pet vary due to
size and the amount of toxin
absorbed.

If you think your animal has
come into contact with one of
these toads at any time, call your
veterinarian immediately and rinse
your pet's mouth out with water,
but make sure not to. squirt water
directly down the throat and nose.

Water conservation areas reflect district's dilemma


In the aftermath of the clo-
sure of Everglades Water Con-
servations Areas by the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) at 12 a.m.
on July 18, water managers are
exploring every possibility of
moving water out of the system
to alleviate the problem. Howev-
er, recurring rain events and
physical limitations of drainage
structures from. the Water Con-
servation Areas have prevented
the movement of water quickly.
The extremely high water lev-
els in most of the Everglades
have prompted the immediate
closing of public access to
730,000 acres, including Water
Conservation Areas 2B and 3
(WCA) by FWC, which provides
law enforcement to state lands.
The immediate goal of the clo-
sure is to protect wildlife in
those areas. With near record
water levels in these areas con-


tinuing to rise, deei and other
animals are forced to move onto
levees and tree islands for food
and shelter. In an additional
measure, the South Florida
Water Management District has
suspended all levee mowing
activities in the WCAs.
In some cases water levels
are five feet higher this year than
in July 2004. All appropriate
water release structures and
flood control structures avail-
able to lower water levels in the
WCAs and the entire system are
running non-stop to control the
large build-up of water. In addi-
tion to direct rainfall, the WCAs
receive inflows from the north in
the form of partially treated
storm water from the Everglades
Agricultural Area. Sometimes
excess water from Lake Okee-
chobee is released to the WCAs
when the water is desirable or
has minimum impacts. Releases


from Lake Okeechobee to the
WCAs have not been made dur-
ing the past few months due to
high WCA water levels. N
The entire 16-county South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict's system is currently saturat-
ed, and each rainfall event
increases the need to move
more water out of the system.
Because this is a rain-driven sys-
tem, inflows into the WCAs will
continue. The outlets from
WCA-3A to Everglades National
Park are fully open.
Lake Okeechobee, at the cen-
ter of the South Florida Water
Management District, reached
its highest level for July in 70
years at 16.69 feet earlier this
month. This has prompted larg-
er releases to protect the health
and safety of the public and pre-
vent possible flooding. Current-
ly, releases of excess water are
not being sent to the WCAs


since the operating criteria pre-
vent these releases when the
WCA water levels are high. The
excess water in the lake is being
released to tide via the lake's pri-
mary outlets: The St. Lucie Canal
and the Caloosahatchee River.
The Water Conservation
Areas (WCAs) reflect what is
happening throughout the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict system, said Carol Wehle,
District executive director. Water
levels are reaching record highs
from north to south following
last year's hurricane season and
the extremely heavy rainfall
events of this year.
With more than three
months left in the wet season,
the possibility of a much wetter
than usual summer and poten-
tial for future hurricanes are tax-
ing the system to its limits.


INI/Katrina Elsken
School crosswalks are there for a purpose and primarily
serves the safety of children en route to school. The Glades
County School District, as well as local law enforcement agen-
cies encourages schoolchildren to utilize the crosswalks and
not attempt to cross dangerous roads to and from school.

Parents give your


kids a heads up


Coming home from
school in Moore Haven
By MaryAnn Morris
When your children go to or
come home from school in
Moore Haven, do they know how
to cross a busy street? The multi-
lane traffic on State Road 27 is a
real danger.
On the way home, kids like to


stop for a snack and laugh with
their friends before homework
starts, but most children are tak-
ing chances by running directly
across the busy highway instead
of going to the crosswalk where
traffic can be stopped for a safe
crossing.
Please, please tell your kids to
take a few minutes more and
cross at the crosswalk. Don't let
them take foolish chances!

Two arrested for- poaching gators


NAPLES Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion officers arrested two Heritage
Greens Golf Club maintenance
workers for cruelty to animals and
unlawful possession/taking of alli-
gator, both third degree felonies.
Arrested were Mark J. Metzger
(DOB 05-04-1971) and Fred J.
Rowe (DOB 07-21-1963), and
each could face up to five years in
jail and/or up to a $5,000 fine for
each charge.
FWC officers received a July 3


report of a stolen "live capture alli-
gator trap" and alligator from a
pond at the golf club. During the
investigation, both suspects
admitted to tampering with a nui-
sance wildlife trapper's equip-
ment, dragging the seven-foot alli-
gator approximately one-half mile
behind a golf cart to the mainte-
nance facility, and using a fillet
knife to remove the animal's tail
and other meat. Both men also
admitted that the alligator was
alive, but died while being


dragged to the maintenance facili-
ty.
The arrest went without inci-
dent and both men cooperated
during the investigation.
These arrests follow the July 22
arrest of a Charlotte County cou-
ple for deliberately feeding an alli-
gator, a second-degree misde-
meanor. Anyone having
information about the feeding of
alligators is urged to report the
incident to the toll free Wildlife
Alert Hotline at (888) 404-3922.


Those reporting violations may
remain anonymous and be eligi-
ble for a reward.
The FWC recommends
observing alligators from a dis-
tance. Information on how to live
with alligators is listed in the
FWC's "Living with Alligators"
brochure found online at
MyFWC.com/gators.
Nuisance alligators should be
reported to the FWC by calling toll
free (866) FWC-GATOR, (866)

Hot temperatures cause health problems


By MaryAnn Morris
The heat has been hovering at
the 90-plus-degree mark and the
heat index is reportedly 110.
"We have treated 66 percent
more heat victims in the past two
weeks," said Hendry Regional
Medical Center Director of Mar-
keting Rodney Larson.
According to the Center for
Disease Control (CDC), exposure
to excessive heat (10 degrees
higher than the normal average)
working outdoors in higher tem-
peratures that you are used to can
make you sick. Heat stroke, left
untreated can cause death and
heat exhaustion left untreated can
lead to heat stroke. If you get heat
cramps, you'll have to stop what
you're trying so hard to get done
while you take steps to relieve the
symptoms.
To avoid these problems, wear
loose, lightweight, light-colored
clothes, wear a broad-brimmed
hat, work early in the morning or
early in the evening. Drink two to
four glasses of water every hour.
Take it slow and stop periodically
to rest and cool off. Listen to your
body. Be aware of the following
symptoms and know what to do if
you experience one or all of them.
Warning signs of HEAT
STROKE vary but may include the
following:
*An extremely high body tem-
perature (above 103iF, orally)
Red, hot, and dry skin (no
sweating)
Rapid, strong pulse
Throbbing headache
Dizziness
Nausea
Confusion


Unconsciousness
Heat stroke occurs when the
body is unable to regulate its tem-
perature. The body's temperature
rises rapidly, the sweating mecha-
nism fails, and the body is unable
to cool down. Body temperature
may rise to 106iF or higher within
10 to 15 minutes; Heat stroke can
cause death or permanent disabil-
ity if emergency treatment is not
provided.
WHAT TO DO If you see
any of these signs, have someone
call for immediate medical assis-
tance while you begin cooling the
victim. Do the following:
Get the victim to a shady
area.
Cool the victim rapidly using
whatever methods you can. For
example, immerse the victim in a
tub of cool water; place the per-
son in a cool shower; spray the
victim with cool water-from a gar-
den hose; sponge the person with
cool water; or if the humidity is
low, wrap the victim in a cool, wet
sheet and fan him or her vigor-
ously.
Monitor body temperature,
and continue cooling efforts until
the body temperature drops to
101-102iF.
If emergency medical per-
sonnel are delayed, call the hospi-
tal emergency room for further
instructions.
Do not give the victim fluids
to drink,
Get medical assistance as
soon as possible.
Sometimes a victim's muscles
will begin uncontrollably as a
result of heat stroke. If this hap-
pens, keep the victim from injur-


ing himself, but do not place any
object in the mouth and do not
give fluids. If there is vomiting,
make sure the airway remains
open by turning the victim on his
or her side.
HEAT EXHAUSTION is a
milder form of heat-related illness
that can develop after several days
of exposure to high temperatures

and inadequate or unbalanced
replacement of fluids. It is the
body's response to losing too
much of the water and salt con-
tained in sweat.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
*Heavy sweating
*Paleness
*Muscle cramps
*Tiredness
*Weakness
*Dizziness
*Headache
*Nausea or vomiting
*Fainting
The skin may be cool and
moist. The victim's pulse rate will
be fast and weak, and breathing
will be fast and shallow. If heat
exhaustion is untreated, it may
progress to heat stroke. Seek
medical attention immediately if
any of the following occurs:
*Symptoms are severe.
*The victim has heart prob-
lems or high blood pressure.
Otherwise, help the victim to
cool off, and seek medical atten-
tion if symptoms worsen or last
longer than one hour.
WHAT TO DO: Cooling meas-
ures that may be effective include
the following:
Cool, nonalcoholic bever-
ages, as directed by your physi-
cian.


Rest
Cool shower, bath, or
sponge bath
S* An air-conditioned environ-
ment
Lightweight clothing
HEAT CRAMPS usually affect
people who sweat a lot during
strenuous activity. This sweating
depletes the body's salt and mois-
ture. The low salt level in the mus-
cles causes painful cramps. Heat
cramps may also be a symptom
of heat exhaustion.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR: Heat
cramps are muscle pains or
spasms usually in the
abdomen, arms, or legs- that
may occur in association with
strenuous activity. If you have
heart problems or are on a low-
sodium diet, get medical attention
for heat cramps.
WHAT TO DO: If medical
attention is not necessary, take
these steps:
Stop all activity, and sit quiet-
ly in a cool place.
Drink clear juice or a sports
beverage.
Do not return to strenuous
activity for a few hours after the
cramps subside, because further
exertion may lead to heat exhaus-
tion or heat stroke. Seek medical
attention for heat cramps if they
do not subside in one hour.

Jupiter youth group on a mission


BELLE GLADE Four middle
school youth and two adults from
First United Methodist Church in
Jupiter recently completed a mis-
sion trip where they spent two days
,helping hurricane victims in Belle
Glade. The youth were Will Twee-
die and Derek Parchesco of
Tequesta, Kevin Kiger and Rebecca
Weischman of Jupiter. Chaperon-
ing were David Parzek, youth
group volunteer, and Katie Gilson,
a Florida Southern College student
interning at First United Methodist
Church.
Gilson arranged the mission trip
through C.R.O.S. (Christians
Reaching Out to Society) Ministries
and the Palm Beach County Long-
Term Recovery Coalition. The
Coalition consists of 28 community
leaders, nonprofit organizations,
business, government, and inter-
faith groups that are working
together and combining resources
in order to help rebuild Palm Beach
County and homes damaged by
Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne in
2004.
The youth group spent a day
and a half applying Kool Seal on
the roof of a mobile home dam-
aged by the hurricanes. The white
seal will stop the roof from leaking
so that damaged walls inside the
home can be repaired. The second
hurricane-related project involved
caulking the windows of another
home damaged by the hurricanes.
The youth group spent an addi-
tional two days of their mission trip
serving food and completing a
painting project at Lighthouse
Caf, a soup kitchen in Belle Glade,
and completing projects at Com-
munity Methodist Church in Belle
Glade. Community Methodist
Church provided the group with

Oriental pioneers and a tradition of hospitality


By MaryAnn Morris
Information for this article was
taken from an article by Beryl Bow-
den, which originally appeared in
the Clewiston News Sept 26,1983.
Mrs. Bowden was one of the
founders of the Clewiston Muse-
um.
CLEWISTON During the
1920s a petite Japanese woman
won the hearts of early Clewiston
settlers. Her story is dear to the his-
tory of that town.
Clewiston, then khown as
"Sand Point," was settled by a
group of Japanese farmers in 1915.
They came by boat up the New
River Canal from Fort Lauderdale
to Ritta Island, and then walked the
wilderness up the shore of Lake
Okeechobee to Sand Point. Mr. and
Mrs. S. Watanabe, who came to be
known as "Papa" and "Madam"
Watanabe were among them.
They lived in a cabin among the
custard apple trees along the ridge
near the O'Brien's home site.
When the O'Briens came to
Clewiston they were surprised to
find someone already there. The
Watanabes had been vegetable
farming in the area for six years
with the other Japanese families.
But most of the others had moved
back, giving in to the wet season
and slow boat shipping for their
vegetables. This left the Watanabes
and one other couple, Albert and
AnnaTokieda,
You might think it odd that
Japanese farmers would be found
in South Florida back then, but it
really wasn't unusual.
Joseph Sakai, a Japanese citi-
zen, had been educated in Ameri-
ca. He thought to relieve the
crowded living conditions in his
homeland by recruiting Japanese
farmers to come to America. His
ideas were approved from then
Florida governor William Jennings
and leading businessmen. The
Yamato community, including
George Morikami came into being
south of Delray Beach in Palm
Beach County around the same
time.
The Watanabes welcomed the
O'Briens and gladly went to work
running the O'Briens' home.
A frame building was complet-
ed to house a hotel upstairs and a
store and dining'room downstairs.
At the O'Briens' request, the
Watanabes operated it. Their
name, uncommon in America,
had a "Hiawatha" lilt to it, so when
the hotel was named the "Watan-
abe Hotel" many people thought it
was an Indian name.
Papa Watanabe was in charge
of the kitchen and Madame was
the greeter and housekeeper. Her
smiling welcome and cheerful face
helped many newcomers adjust to
the otherwise rough lifestyle of
these early days.
Viola Owen arrived with a two-
month and two-year-old sons to
dirt paths and jungle vegetation,
she cried, as 'many women did
when faced with the task of mak-
ing a home and having very little to
workwith!
"Madame is looking forward to
meeting you and she has made a
special dinner for you," her hus-
band told her.
Three Clewiston ladies, teenage
girls at the time, remember wait-
ressing for Madame at the hotel.
They remember her absolute
cleanliness, energy and her talent
for flower arrangement. Madame
had flowers everywhere: Yellow

lotus and wild periwinkle, which
Madame could arrange just so to
make a beautiful arrangement
from a lowly weed. Today, the girls,
now grown women, remember
the free course in Japanese flower
arranging they could have had. As
teenagers they weren't the least
interested.
I Madame loved company and
would invite some of the wives in
for afternoon tea, serving in the
small Japanese cups without han-
dles. Sometimes she would have a
small gift from Japan for each
guest.
After the hurricane of Septem-
ber 1926, Clewiston had damage,
but no loss of life. In Moore Haven
200 people had drowned. Many
were friends of people in Clewis-


ton. By December people in the
lake area were worn out from all
the cleanup and loss.
Papa and Madame Watanabe
invited everyone up and down the
lakeshore to come to a party at-the
hotel in December. Everyone
came. The hotel was crowded;
Madame had decorated with her
artistic flair, using small tree
branches, paper flowers, her
Japanese lanterns and some lovely
tapestries from her homeland. The
place sparkled!
They served dinner.atten o
clock and had an orchestra come
from Fort Myers for dancing. The
party and the kindness, with which
it was given lifted the deepest
gloom and helped life return to
normal. The coming years were
prosperous, but the Watanabes
were homesick.
They had been away from
Japan for a long time and had an
80-year-old mother and two grand-
children they had never seen.
There was a farewell party for them
at the hotel with Elbert Stewart and
F.L. Williamson as spokesmen to
wish them a safe trip and present
them with a matched set of lug-
gage from their many friends in

Several letters were exchanged,
over the coming years, the last
from Papa Watanabe saying
Madame's health was very poor,
but he himself was well and they
missed their friends in America and
that was the last known word from
this very delightful pioneer couple.

4-H members excel at 4-H Congress


By Sonja Crawford
More than 400 4-H youth, ages
13-18, were able to get a taste of
college life by participating in the
2005 Florida 4-H Congress held at
the University of Florida on July 25-
29. This fabulous week enabled
many 4-H members to learn and
share with other 4-H'ers across
Florida.
Congress is divided into com-
petitive and non-competitive ses-
sions. The non-competitive portion
is devoted to educational/leader-
ship workshops addressing the
interest of Florida's youth including
animal science, individual and
family resources, plant science,.
environmental education, citizen-
ship and leadership, communica-
tion arts as well as science and
technology.
The competitive portion of Con-
gress is where the first place senior
District winners compete against
other county District winners in a
variety of events, such as fashion
revue, demonstrations/illustrated
talks, and public speaking. County
4-H Judging teams participate with


other teams across the state in vari-
ous judging contests. Furthermore,
interviews for State Recognition
and Scholarships are also conduct-
ed during this event.
Three 4-H members from
Hendry County participated in this
weeklong program. The attendees
were Jessica Bechtel, Jaydee Hull
and Morgan Musgrave. Jaydee
competed in the Fashion Revue
event where she captured the first
place trophy in the School/Infor-
mal Wear category. The fashion
revue event consists of clothing
construction and clothing selec-
tion.
In each of the divisions, there
are five categories: Dressed for
work, special occasion, my choice,
active sports wear, and
schooVinformal wear. Jessica and
Morgan attended Congress as vot-
ing delegates.
All of the members had an
opportunity to learn, grow, and test
their abilities as they participated in
the educational programs and
competitive events throughout the
week.


Members of the Hendry County 4-H team, which attended
this year's 4-H Congress at the University of Florida are (not
necessarily in order) Jessica Bechtel, Morgan Musgrave,
and Jaydee Hull.

ment and knowledge to make
decisions on county commodity
price-support loan eligibility,
establishment of allotments and
yields, conservation programs,
disaster programs, employment
and other farm program-related
issues.

themselves or others as a candi-
date. In addition, eligible candi-


dates can be nominated by com-
munity-based and other organi-
zations in the county where the
election is being held before the
close of the nomination period,
especially groups representing
socially disadvantaged farmers
or ranchers.
Nominations and elections
are open to all eligible candi-
dates and voters without regard
to race, color, religion, nation
origin, age, sex, marital status or
disability. The nomination form
(FSA-669A) is available at USDA

USDA to extend conservation reserve program contracts DR. MERCER'S DENTURE CLINIC
U I C' SJq Al Iq.FT- M V S


GAINESVILLE Farmers and
ranchers with certain Conserva-
tion Reserve Program (CRP) con-
tracts expiring this year may
extend their contracts for one
year, announced Kevin Kelley,
state executive director for USDA's
Farm Service Agency (FSA).
"The expiration affects
approximately 1,969 acres now
protected by the CRP in 10 Florida
counties," said Kelley. "Extending
certain existing contracts will
ensure that CRP's environmental
benefits are preserved."
Local FSA offices will notify eli-
gible CRP participants of their
option to modify and extend their


CRP contracts. The deadline to
apply for this extension is Sept. 2.
The extension option applies
to CRP participants with contracts
scheduled to expire Sept. 30, and
whose original contract with the
extension will not exceed 15
years. About 7,000 contracts,
nationwide, are affected.
The extension will not change
participants' rental rates. All or a
portion of the acreage under
contract may be included in an
extension, but no new acreage
may be added. Obligations and
responsibilities under the origi-
nal contract continue to apply to
contracts that are modified and


extended. USDA is not planning
to offer a general CRP signup in
fiscal year 2005.
However, producers may con-
tinue to enroll relatively small,
highly-desirable acreage, such as
filter strips and riparian buffers,
in the continuous CRP at any
time at their local FSA office.
The CRP is a voluntary pro-
gram available to agricultural
producers to help them safe-
guard environmentally sensitive
land. Producers enrolled in CRP
plant long-term, resource-con-
serving covers to improve the
quality of water, control soil ero-
sion, and enhance wildlife habi-


tat. In return, FSA provides partici-
pants with rental payments for 10-
15 years and cost-share assistance
to establish the practice.
Since its inception in 1986,
CRP continues to reduce soil ero-
sion, improve water quality and
wildlife habitat, and sequester
atmospheric carbon in the 35-mil-
lion acres currently enrolled in the
program.
For more information on the
CRP program, contact your local
FSA office or visit the FSA Web site
at:
http://www.fsa.usda.gov/dafp/ce
pd/crp.htm.


Rep. Harris: CAFTA to boost Central American stability


WASHINGTON D.C. U.S.
Rep. Katherine Harris,, after meet-
ing with representatives of the
Nicaraguan- democracy move-
ment, noted the importance of
free trade for promoting political
stability in the Central American
region and urged her colleagues
to pass the DR-CAFTA trade pact
when it comes before the House.
Harris met with several mem-
bers of "Movimiento Por
Nicaragua" (MPN), a civic move-
ment that seeks to reinforce the
country's democratic institutions,
which are threatened by the
machinations of two former
Nicaraguan presidents, Arnoldo
Aleman and Daniel Ortega, who
are collaborating to strip power
from the executive branch and
from the current president,
Enrique Bola-os. '
The MPN members empha-
sized that DR-CAFTA, or the


Dominican Republic-Central
American Free Trade Agreement,
would support their ,efforts to
strengthen Nicaragua's democrat-
ic political system, arguing that a
strong system of free enterprise
would extend economic opportu-
nity and distribute political power.
"Twenty years ago, the United
States sent troops and supplies to
support these fledgling democra-
cies, and now we have a second
opportunity to offer them our sup-
port through peaceful and mutu-
ally beneficial trade," Harris said.
"I urge my colleagues to extend
this great opportunity for cooper-
ation to the people of the Central
American region, so that they can
build a stronger and more stable
political culture based on democ-
racy, individual rights, free enter-
prise and the rule of law."
The House vote on DR-CAFTA,
or the Dominican Republic-Cen-


tral America Free Trade Agree-
ment, is expected as early as
Wednesday night.
The agreement would create a
free trade zone between the Unit-
ed States and Costa Rica, El Sal-
vador, Guatemala, Honduras,
Nicaragua and the Dominican
Republic. Harris, a longtime advo-
cate of trade policies to expand
markets for U.S. products, is a
strong supporter of the CAFTA
bill, not only because of the eco-.
nomic growth and jobs it would
bring to Florida communities and
the United States, but also
because of the benefits it would
bring to the nation's trading part-
ners in the region.
The Nicaraguan democratic
activists who met with Harris
Wednesday included Nelson
Estrada, Rosa Marina Zelaya,
Rhina Cardenal and Klaus
Stadthagen. Estrada noted the


importance of the DR-CAFTA
agreement for Nicaragua, arguing
that the Marxist politicos in
Nicaragua are opposed to the bill
and to free enterprise because "it
dilutes their power."

The MPN civic movement is
dedicated to strengthening the
rule of law and democracy in
Nicaragua, with the goal of ensur-
ing free, fair and transparent elec-
tions in 2006. Most recently, the
movement organized a march of
more than 100,000 people to
protest the anti-democratic
actions of Aleman and Ortega.
MPN leaders are in Washington,
D.C., this week to meet with
members of Congress, State
Department officials and non-
governmental organizations to
enlist support for the organiza-
tion's objectives.

Florida employment/unemployment report for June 2005


The state's seasonally adjusted
June 2005 unemployment rate
was 3.9 percent, down from the
revised rate of 4.1 percent in May
and down 0.9 percentage point
from 4.8 percent a year ago. Flori-
da's June 2005 unemployment
rate was the lowest experienced
by the state since December 2000.
Florida's seasonally adjusted
unemployment rate for June 2005
was over a full percentage point
lower than the national rate of 5.0


percent.
In June 2005, seasonally
adjusted nonagricultural employ-
ment grew by 228,100 jobs over
the year, growing at 3.0 percent,
nearly twice the national rate. By
comparison, the national rate of
growth was 1.6 percent for the
same period.
The state continued to see the
rate of growth exceed other com-
parable states. Based on data from
May 2005, the latest month for


which comparable data are avail-
able from other states, Florida had
the fastest rate of annual job
growth among the 10 most popu-
lous states.
Solid growth continued in
manufacturing's durable goods
sector, which gained 5,400 jobs
(+2.1 percent) since last June.
Much of the growth in durable
goods was in transportation
equipment manufacturing
(+2,000 jobs, +4.8 percent).


Overall, manufacturing gained
3,200 jobs over the year.
The Orlando MSA led the state
in employment growth (+39,500
jobs, +4.1 percent), followed by
the Miami-Ft. Lauderdale-Miami
Beach MSA Orlando and Tampa-
St. Petersburg-Clearwater MSAs
with over-the-year job growth in
June 2005 of +37,300 jobs and
+32,600 jobs, respectively.
NOTE: There is an unusual
drop in local government employ-


ment in Florida when comparing
June of this year to June 2004. The
reason for this decline is that pub-
lic schools in Broward and Miami-
Dade Counties closed earlier this
year, so the drop in local govern-
ment employment that occurred
in those areas in July in past years
is reflected in the estimates a
month earlier.
Similarly, since schools in
those areas will be back in session
in August rather than September


as they have in the past, there will
be an unusually large over-the-
year increase in August. This is not
considered an economic change
since it is being caused by the shift
in the school calendar. All other
counties in the state already fol-
low the earlier opening and clos-
ing schedule, so the seasonal pat-
tern in Broward and Miami-Dade
Counties is now consistent with
other Florida counties.


Crist announces new consumer protection tool


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist announced
the creation of a new tool designed
to provide consumers with imme-
diate updates on fraud protection
measures. Through the new Con-
sumer Alerts service, citizens can
subscribe to an electronic notifica-
tion network and receive fraud
warnings directly as they are
announced.
"In a world of rapidly changing
technology, criminals are constant-
ly coming up with new ways to pull


off old scams," said Crist. "This
new service lets us fight fire with
fire by using the latest in technolo-
gy to help consumers stay fully
informed on threats to their finan-
cial well being."
By subscribing to the Consumer
Alerts service, citizens add their e-
mail address to a list of individuals
who will receive instantaneous
notification whenever the Attorney
General's Office issues a warning
or notice to consumers. Consumer
notices are also posted to the attor-


ney general's Web site, but prior to
the introduction of the new service
were not otherwise delivered
directly to consumers.
Citizens may subscribe to Con-
sumer Alerts by visiting the attor-
ney general's Web site at
http://myfloridalegal.com and
clicking on the red "Subscribe to
the Attorney General's Electronic
Newsletter and Consumer
Updates" link at the top of the
page. That link also offers the
opportunity for citizens to sign up


for other subscription services
available to the public, including
the attorney general's weekly elec-
tronic newsletter news briefs and
the semi-monthly consumer news
publication Consumer Bulletin.
The Consumer Alerts service is
the latest addition to anti-fraud activi-
ties by the Attorney General's Office.
Since January 2003, the office has
operated a toll-free fraud hotline at 1-
866-NO-SCAM (1-866-966-7226),
which to date has handled more
than 148,000 consumer calls.


Prescription drug settlements to deliver widespread relief


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist announced
that more than $2.5 million in
checks are now on their way to
Florida consumers and public
agencies from two prescription
drug settlements reached by his
office. More than 5,600 individual
Floridians who overpaid for the
common heart medication
Caridzem CD should begin receiv-
ing their checks.
The checks mailed to con-
sumers come as part of the
Cardizem CD settlement, reached
in January 2003 to resolve antitrust
claims against Aventis Pharmaceu-
ticals, Inc., Andrx Corporation and


affiliated entities.
Florida consumers who previ-
ously submitted valid claims will
share $1.95 million in restitution to
cover amounts they overpaid for
the medication. The settlement
represents the third highest con-
sumer recovery ever among Flori-
da pharmaceutical antitrust cases
in which restitution has been made
to consumers. Based on the num-
ber of claims received from resi-
dents, Florida will receive more for
consumer restitution than any
other state.
"Obviously, when Floridians are
able to get back money they over-
paid for necessary medical care, it's a


good day in the state of Florida," said
Crist. "These settlements will help us
keep our citizens in good health
while easing undue financial stress."
A separate settlement, involving
the anti-inflammatory drug Relafen,
was reached in February between
the Attorney General's Office and
SmithKline Beecham Corporation
and SmithKline Beecham, Plc. The
settlement resolved allegations that
public entities overpaid for medica-
tions because SmithKline's conduct
prevented a low-priced generic
equivalent of Relafen from being
available.
Florida taxpayers will recover
$597,000 to make up for over-


charges paid by the state's Medic-
aid program and other state and
local public health entities.
Attorney General Crist has also
filed a claim for more than*
$480,000 from a private class action
settlement to reimburse the state
for purchases it made on behalf of
government employees. Attorriey
General's Offices in Florida, Mary-
land and New York negotiated the
settlement on behalf of all 50 states,
as well as the District of Columbia
and U.S. territories.
Since 2003, the Attorney Gener-
al's Antitrust Division has produced
close to $37 million in recoveries in
antitrust lawsuits.


Businesses should be

wary of out-of-state

compliance notices


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist issued a
warning to Florida consumers,
particularly business owners,
alerting them. to a new trend in
deceptive marketing practices.
Some out-of-state companies
have recently targeted Florida
businesses in a bid to sell servic-
es purportedly designed to help
them comply with legal require-
ments in Florida. These services,
which often are offered in offi-
cial-looking solicitations, are
often unnecessary or can -be
completed for free elsewhere.
"The most important thing
for Florida consumers is to be
aware that these scams exist,"
said Crist. "These companies
masquerade as government
agencies to deceive Florida busi-
nesses that wish to comply with
the law. Anyone receiving these
demands should report them
immediately."
Over the past several months,
the Attorney General's Office has
received numerous complaints


against several of these compa-
nies. Last week the attorney gen-
eral settled a lawsuit against one
such company, Corporate Com-
pliance Center, over allegations
that the company misled Florida
businesses relating to the sale of
corporate minutes reports. Two
other companies, Corporate
Minutes Compliance Service
and Corporate Minute Services,
were prevented from operating
in Florida when the Attorney
General's Office threatened liti-
gation.
Crist advised consumers to
examine all notices carefully,
especially those that come from
outside the state and offer fee-
based services to comply with
Florida laws. Businesses and
individual consumers are
advised to check with the Florida
Department of State if they sus-
pect a notice they received is not
from official sources. The attor-
ney general's Fraud Hotline is 1-
866-9-NO-SCAM (1-866-966-
7226).

Senator blasts FEMA for denying residents help


WASHINGTON, D.C. Pan-
handle residents wrongly are being
denied federal disaster assistance
for certain expenses they incurred
in preparation for Hurricane Den-
nis, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson charged in
a letter to the nation's top disaster
management official.
In the wake of hurricanes and
other disasters, the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency
(FEMA) generally reimburses resi-
dents for purchases of certain
items like, generators, dehumid-
ifiers, heating fuel and chain saws
- made up to several days in
advance of an incident. That's what
FEMA did for the four 'hurricanes


that hit Florida last year.
But in the case of Hurricane
Dennis, which struck the Panhan-
dle July 10, residents now are being
told by FEMA that such storm-
preparation expenditures will not
be covered.
"As things stand now, you are
punishing people for taking steps
necessary to protect their lives or
property," Nelson said in his July 21
letter to FEMA chief Mike Brown.
Nelson asked Brown to make
federal assistance available to Pan-
handle residents for qualifying-
items they bought a day or two
before the storm. Because the state
response actually began three days


before Dennis, and because the
storm was preceded by high
winds, torrential rains and torna-
does, residents who went to the
expense of preparing themselves
should not be punished, Nelson
said.
Nelson noted FEMA has extend-
ed its so-called "incident period"
for covering such expenses in the
past. For instance, the agency
extended coverage from one to five
days following severe weather and
flooding in Wisconsin in Septem-
ber 2002.
For Hurricane Charley in August
of last year, FEMA covered resi-
dents' authorized storm-related


expenses two days before the
storm. For Hurricane Frances three
weeks later, FEMA allowed one day
before the storm in which to pur-
chase such things. For Hurricane
Ivan in mid-September, FEMA cov-
ered expenses for up to three days
beforehand. For Hurricane Jeanne
in late September, FEMA paid for
certain uninsured and unmet
needs made two days before the
storm.
But for Dennis, the agency says
it will pay for expenses beginning
the day of the storm.
"I feel that the action of FEMA is
causing a lot of undue stress to citi-
zens in Santa Rosa County," a Mil-


ton woman wrote Nelson in a July
20 letter, after FEMA denied her
claim for reimbursement on a gen-
erator. "Last year I was without
power and a generator for eleven
days. Therefore I purchased a gen-
erator two days before (Dennis).
"We are working class people
who don't have the money to just
go out and purchase these items,
but my understanding was that we
would be reimbursed," she wrote,
"Please help us recover our
losses."
A Pensacola woman, who also
was a Dennis victim, wrote Nelson
too, saying: "FEMA made the deci-
sion to reimburse for the purchase


of a generator only if the purchase
was made on the day of the hurri-
cane (July 10, 2005) or after that
date. This is totally unfair. What
were people supposed to do?
There were no generators in Pen-
sacola before the date of the hurri-
cane.
"My husband purchased our
generator in Georgia, because I
tried to locate one in Pensacola and
could not. The people who are
being shafted by FEMA need to
stand up for themselves and
appeal to any government officials
who is willing to speak for the peo-
ple of this country."


Florida officials to lobby military base


NEW ORLEANS U.S. Sen.
Bill Nelson will join a delegation of
federal, state and local officials
from Florida scheduled to testify
before the Base Realignment and
Closure Commission in New
Orleans. Although the Depart-
ment of Defense (DOD) recom-
mended no Florida bases be
closed, the delegation will ask
commission members to reject
DOD recommendations that
adversely impact a few Florida
military bases.
The Defense Department has
recommended relocating naval
training and education headquar-
ters at Pensacola Naval Air Station
and ordinance testing activities at
Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
Nelson will ask the commis-
sion to endorse efforts to make
upgrades to Mayport Naval Station
in Jacksonville that will enable the
base to house a nuclear powered
aircraft carrier.
Besides Nelson, the so-called
BRAC panel also will hear from
Sen. Mel Martinez and Gov. Jeb


Bush.
Senator Bill Nelson statement:
Base Realignment and closure
commission
Mr. Chairman and members of
the Commission, I am grateful for
this opportunity to address the
Commission and share my views
on the Department's recommen-
dations regarding military bases
and activities in the state of Flori-
da.
We are convinced that on bal-
ance the Department's recom-
mendations provide ample evi-
dence of its profound and
complete endorsement of the cur-
rent and future military value of
Florida's bases, activities, and our
extensive training and testing air,
land aud sea ranges.
Despite this confirmation of
Florida's exceptional contribution
to national security, we share the
Commission's view, as indicated
in Chairman Prinicpi's letter to
Secretary Rumsfeld, that the
Department's recommendations,
in some cases, may be technically


flawed, short-sighted, illogical or
perhaps unnecessarily cautious.
Florida's testimony today high-
lights for you all these shortcom-
ings.
For example, the Navy is now
unequivocal and on the record.
The nation needs two aircraft car-
rier ports on the east coast. We
have two carrier ports now, but
only one is nuclear capable. It is
inevitable that the Navy will estab-
lish the required nuclear aircraft
carrier capability at Naval Station
Mayport. We should do it sooner
rather than later, and we urge the
Commission to include this in its
recommendations.
Also, as you have heard, the
Department's recommendation to
move the Naval Ordnance Test
Unit off of Cape Canaveral Air
Force Station and the Eastern
Range appears to have been
made without consideration of its
"on site" mission or the econom-
ics of its current and future con-
tractor-support situation. We urge
the Commission to reverse this in


its recommendations.
The Department's proposal to
realign large training policy and
management activities now at
Naval Air Station Pensacola away
from actual training may have
unintended negative conse-
quences for the quality of both.
We do not agree that the colloca-
tion of officer education and train-
ing makes intuitive or analytical
sense-education and training
often require dramatically differ-
ent resources and environments.
Finally, as mentioned by Admi-
ral Natter in our opening testimo-
ny, Florida has submitted sepa-
rately other issues for the
Commission's consideration that
time does not allow us to explore
today. I would only highlight two
realignments related to Tyndall Air
Force Base that the Commission
should find very useful to exam-
ine. First, we agree with the
Department's recommendation to
regionally consolidate F-100 series

Florida Kids count responds to national calls to action for unemployed parents


A report released by the Annie
E. Casey Foundation reveals that
the number of children living with
unemployed parents has
increased from three million to
four million since 2000.
According to the 16th annual
KIDS COUNT Data Book, unem-
ployed parents are often faced
with issues that make connecting
to the workforce especially diffi-


cult.- domestic violence, depres-
sion, substance abuse, and prior
incarceration. The Annie E. Casey
Foundation KIDS COUNT project
is a national and state-by-state
effort to compile the best avail-
able data to describe the educa-
tional, social, economic and phys-
ical well being of the nation's
children.
KIDS COUNT seeks to enrich


local, state, and national discus-
.sions concerning ways to secure
better futures for all children by
providing policymakers and citi-
zens with benchmarks of child
well being. This year's report
shows that in 2003, approximately
168,000 children in Florida lived in
low-income households where no
adult worked in the past year,
accounting for four percent of


Florida's total child population..
The report also found an
increased rate of children in single
parent households.
In 2003, 36 percent of Florida's
children lived in households led
by a single parent, compared to 35
percent in 2000. This year's data
book reveals a critical need for
state and local leaders to build
support for vulnerable parents in a'


more systematic, comprehensive,
and integrated way. The 2005 Data
Book's essay highlights public and
private initiatives around the
country that address the needs of
America's most persistently
unemployed families.
The Department of Child &
Family Studies and the USF Louis
de la Parte Florida Mental Health
Institute are involved in a number


of initiatives with the same goals.
Information on those, initiatives
and contact information can be
found at:
http://cscf.fmhi.usf.edu/flkc/fmhi
