Officials work to relieve flooding


By Katrina Elsken
POLK COUNTY Efforts to
reduce flooding around Polk
County lakes will mean more
water flowing south down the
Kissimmee River, and into Lake
Okeechobee.
Polk County officials are
working to relieve flooding
around area lakes, but heavy
rainfall continues to make it dif-
ficult to bring the lake levels
down.
The high lake levels are the


result of heavy rainfall in recent
years, according to Jeff Spence,
Polk County Director of Natural
Resources.
Since 1990, Crooked Lake
has risen 17 feet, he said.
Since 1995, the amount of
rainfall each year has been
increasing, he said. Last year
the area was hit by three hurri-
canes and a tropical storm. The
"dry" season did not do much
to lower the lake levels. A wet
spring and record rainfalls in
June combined to swell the


lakes. Hurricane debris in ditch-
es and creeks prevented water
from moving south.
Crooked Lake is connected
to Lake Clinch through a man-
made ditch first dug in 1891, Mr.
- Spence explained. He said for
many years, due to low water
levels, the ditch was not needed
for flood control. It became
overgrown with vegetation.
Mr. Spence said earlier this
year when Crooked Lake's ris-
ing waters threatened area
homes, county officials cleaned


out and removed vegetation
from the ditch for the first time
in many years.
Crooked Lake is '123. feet
above sea level. Lake Clinch's
lake level is 109 feet, he said.
"Water runs downhill."
From Lake Clinch, water
runs through a ditch and pipe
system through downtown
Frostproof to Lake Reedy,-
which has a lake level of about
80 feet above sea level, Mr.
Spence said.
He said originally there was a


Something to cheer about: Terrier cheerleading squad


INI/Mark Young
There may not have been a lot to cheer about at last week's Kick Off Classic where the Terriers were blanked by
the Okeechobee Brahmans, but it didn't stop Moore Haven's cheerleading squad from entertaining the crowd. They
are from left front, Vaushea Lewis. Whitney Ball. Amy Lundy. and Jenna Bryant. From left back, Ronnesia Myers,
Anita Duncanson, Lindsey Ringstaff, Rachel Broome, Kimberly Minott, and Alisha Beck.


Beautiful and talented are the Terrier cheerleaders who will try to spark Friday night's crowd as the Moore Haven
Terriers take the field against Lake Placid at 7:30 p.m. in the regular season opener.


creek that ran through the city
of Frostproof from Lake Clinch
to Lake Reedy. Over the
decades, some property owners
- have put pipes in where the
creek once ran, he said. Some
of these pipes are not large
enough to accommodate the
needed water flow, he said. The
county, is currently in the
process of replacing these with
larger pipes.

A special thanks goes to Mr.
Doug Martin, owner/operator of
Jim's Parts Place, Inc. for his
donation of the vehicles used by
the firefighters in this training.
Mr. Martin's generosity has
proved .to be a vital training
resource for area fire depart-
ments. His support is greatly
appreciated and is sure to bene-
fit the community.
The rigorous training these
firefighters, undergo are an
essential aspect of -providing
quality emergency care to those
who find themselves in the posi-
tion of needing it.
Without quality training
experiences such as this, first
responders could lose valuable
time in saving the lives the oth-
ers. In times of need, we all
count on the expertise of others,
As the Labor Day holiday
approaches, please remember
to drive safely on the roadways
and keep these valuable first

minimum?


Kelley named Edison dean


By Patty Brant
LABELLE LaBelle Middle
School students, staff and par-
ents barely had time to get
acquainted with new principal
Lucinda Kelley, but will already
be saying goodbye. Ms. Kelley
just took over at LMS July 1, but
Sept. 30 will be her last day
there. The 16-year education
veteran has been named 'the
new dean of Hendry/Glades
Services for Edison College.
Dr. Sally Berg, who has
served as Edison College
Hendry/Glades Services Direc-
tor for the past 11 years, will
retire Dec. 31. In the intervening
months, Ms. Kelley will have the
opportunity of training with Dr.
Berg before she takes the reins.
EC has had a campus at
LaBelle High School grounds
since 1995. At that time, the
LaBelle campus had some 189
students. Now, some 400 full
time students are getting basic
college level courses at the cam-


pus.
Plans call for a new campus,
located on the Paul property in
what is now being called the
South LaBelle Community, with
the larger community wrapping
around the college. EC itself will
be part of an educational vil-
lage, which will include the per-
manent home of the Education
.Center of Southwest Florida,
Inc., vocational school and
eventually, a high school. Once
the new facility is open, it
should accommodate about
1,000 students.
An Arkansas native, Ms. Kel-
ley came to Florida at the age of
nine. She earned a bachelors
degree in English, second level,
from Southeastern College in
Lakeland and her masters in
education leadership from
NOVA Southeastern University.
Her first teaching job was in
Polk County. After moving to
LaBelle in 1997, she opened
LaBelle Youth Development
Academy at that time. She has


served as assistant principal at
LHS; assistant principal at Cen-
tral elementary School in
Clewiston; and has been princi-
pal at Clewiston High School for
the past five years.
Ms. Kelley says she sees the
new position at Edison College
as a chance to try to make a dif-
ference in a larger context: The
position is an "exciting'oppQrtiu-
nity" on the ground floor to be
an important part of education
'in the larger community. She
will be responsible for helping
to build a new campus as well
as the educational program at a
time of unprecedented growth.
With that growth will come an
even greater demand for higher
education here, she.says. In fact,
she herself will be working
toward her doctorate in the
'future.
The opportunity "just came
up," she commented, "I never
thought I'd leave the K-12 pro-

Water managers expand toxin monitoring program


As result of widespread blooms
of floating glue-green algae, the
South Florida Water Management
District has increased blue-green
algae toxin monitoring locations
and frequency throughout the
agency's 16-county region.
Beginning Aug. 22, samples will
be collected at 41 stations every
two weeks from May to October,
and every month from November
to April. The tests will be conduct-
ed in the Caloosahatchee and St.
Lucie estuaries, Lake Okeechobee,
the Kissimmee River and upper
chain of lakes as well as many
canals throughout the district.
Here is a primer on blue-green
algae that you. may find useful in
explaining this phenomenon:
What are blue-green algae?
Blue-green algae are natural to
the environment and are found all
over the world. They are not
unique to South Florida Water
Management District water bodies.
They are also common throughout
the state as well as in other states,
including Georgia, Texas, Alaba-
ma, Maryland, Virginia, Michigan,
Oregon and others.
What causes blue-green algae
blooms?
Blue-green algae multiply
quickly in Water bodies with high
nutrient levels such as phosphorus,
particularly when the water is
warm and the weather is calm.
This proliferation causes "blooms"
of floating blue-green algae that
turn the water green. These three
ingredients warm water, calm
weather and high levels of nutri-
ents are presently fueling the


blooms in our area.
Where are the blue-green algae
blooms today?
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is experiencing
blooms in Lake Okeechobee, St.
Lucie River, Caloosahatchee River,
C-51 Canal in Palm Beach County
and a light bloom in the Upper
Kissimmee Chain of Lakes.
Our area is not alone. Blooms
are occurring in other Florida water
bodies outside of the South Florida
Water Management District region,
such as the St. Johns River near
Jacksonville. Blue-green algae
blooms were also recently report-
ed in Michigan (Lake Huron) and
Oregon (Odell Lake).
Are blue-green algae toxic and a
health risk to humans?
It is important to understand
that some not all species of
blue-green algae can produce tox-
ins that can affect public health.
Those blue-green algae that are
known to produce toxins, do not
always do so. Little is known about
the environmental conditions that
trigger toxin production.
The blooms in South Florida
Water Management District water-
ways are caused by blue-green
algae called Mycrocystis. This blue-
green algae are not always toxic
but can form toxic, strains. The
toxin called microcystin can
be a threat to fish, pets, livestock,
wild animals and humans if ingest-
ed or inhaled. However, informa-
tion regarding toxins from blue-
green algae and risks to humans,
fish and wildlife is very limited.
Currently, there are no estab-


lished state or federal guidelines for
standard toxic levels of concern.
The World Health Organization
suggests 1.0 microgram per liter for
drinking water.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is working closely
with the state Health Department
medical experts, who will provide
information regarding known
human health risks associated with
varying levels of toxic blue-green
algae. Health Department officials
recommend staying out of the
water where algae blooms are
concentrated as a precaution.
What is the South Florida Water
Management District doing about
the blue-green algae blooms?
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is coordinating
monitoring, evaluation and com-
munication efforts with local,
county, state and federal agencies
including the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection, Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission/Florida Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute, Florida
Department of Health, St. Johns
River Water Management District,
Southwest Florida Water Manage-
ment District, University of Florida,
county governments and local utili-
ties.
The district has increased blue-
green algae toxin monitoring loca-
tions and frequency throughout
central and southern Florida.
Beginning Aug. 22, samples will be
collected at 41 stations every two
weeks from May to October,. and
every month from November to
April. The tests will be conducted


in the Caloosahatchee and St.
Lucie estuaries, Lake Okeechobee,
the Kissimmee River and upper
chain of lakes as well as many
canals throughout the district.
We are looking to utilize the
help of a nationally renowned
blue-green algae expert to serve as
a consultant.
Are there toxic blue-green algae
in Lake Okeechobee and the
coastal estuaries?
Elevated toxin levels ranging
from 20 to 373 micrograms per liter
were found this month in samples
collected from Lake Okeechobee,
St. Lucie River and C-51 Canal and
analyzed by the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute. Results
from recent testing in the Caloosa-
hatchee are expected next week.
Can large blue-green algae
blooms cause fish kills?
Blooms of blue-green algae that
last more than a few months can
be harmful to lake/river ecosys-
tems and cause fish kills because of
the decrease in oxygen levels and
direct ingestion in the food chain:
How long will the blooms last?,
Blooms can last days, weeks or
months, depending on conditions.
Scientists cannot predict when or
where blooms will occur or how
long they will last; the blooms will
run their course and dissipate natu-
rally.

Food additives may increase health risks


Concerns about foods contain-
ing high fructose corn syrup
(HFCS) are back in the news as
researchers link the food additive
to obesity, diabetes and heart prob-
lems.
Fruit is generally a healthy food.
Five to nine servings of fruits and
vegetables per day are recom-
mended on the USDA food pyra-_
mid. And HFCS is found in a veg-
etable. So why isn't HFCS a
"healthy" choice? The answer goes
back to the issue of processed
foods: The human body is just not
designed to consume fructose in
this processed form.
When you eat an ear of corn,
you don't just consume the corn
syrup. You also consume the fiber
and vitamins in the corn. When
you consume products with HFCS,
you ingest refined sugars, without
any of the corn's vitamins or fiber,
and you consume it in a form not
found naturally.
According to the HFCS "white

paper" published by the Corn
Industry, "the corn wet milling
industry makes HFCS from corn
starch using a series of unit
processes that include steeping
corn to soften the hard kernel;
physical separation of the kernel
into its separate components -
starch, corn hull, protein and oil;
breakdown of the starch to glu-
cose; use of enzymes to invert glu-
cose to fructose; removal of impu-
rities; and blending of glucose and
fructose to make HFCS-42 and
HFCS-55."


Drainage issues part of Florida history


By MaiyAnn Morris
Coastal residents are voicing
concerns about how drainage
from Lake Okeechobee affects
the Caloosahatchee and St.
Lucie Rivers. Dn
Drainage
issues have 'r a
long been part
of South Flori-
da history.
The Calusa
Native Ameri-
.cans estab-
lished the first .4
connection Hamilton
from Lake Disston.
Okeechobee
to the Caloosahatchee long
before any settlers came from
Europe or the northern United
States. They wanted to be able
to go between Lake Okee-
chobee and the Caloosahatchee
River in their dugout canoes.
Hamilton Disston of the Dis-
ston Saw Company of Philadel-
phia, Pa. came to Florida in 1873
and saw a fabulous opportunity
for agriculture. He gathered
together a group of investors
and approached the state to buy
the land "east of the Peace River
south of and west of." The Legis-
lature agreed on the condition
that the land be "DRAINED".
The deal was closed in 1881 and
Mr. Disston set about his work.
An account published in the
New York Times, o6n Feb. 18,
1881 reported that "within six
months (Disston's company)
was to put a force equal to 100
men on the work" the work
in part was "to drain the land by
a canal from Lake Okeechobee
to the Caloosahatchee River.
Another canal may also be con-
structed to the east, tapping the
St. Lucie River. These canals will
entirely drain the swamp, and

Naturally occurring sugars, like
sucrose, contain fructose bound to
other sugars. But high fructose
corn syrup has been chemically
altered and contains "free" fruc-
tose. This free fructose is metabo-
lized only in the liver and as a result
can put a strain on the liver and the
heart. According to'a report by the
Weston A. Price Foundation,
research indicates this free fructose
interferes with the heart's use of
key minerals and has been linked
to elevated cholesterol levels.
Recent university studies indi-
cate there may be a link between
consumption of HFCS and Type 2
diabetes. Type 2 is the form of dia-
betes that used to be called "adult
onset". The alarming rise in the
number of children suffering from
Type 2 Diabetes may be linked to
poor diet and consumption of too
many processed foods.

than double the risk of developing
Type 2 diabetes.
HFCS consumption has also
been linked to obesity because it
appears to promote fat storage in
the body. It's not enough to count
calories. The body processes some
calories differently from others.
Food manufacturers put HFCS
in foods because it is cheaper than
other sweeteners and because it
has a longer shelf life.
How can parents fight back?
Read labels and avoid prod-
ucts containing HFCS. You may not
be able to control everything your
child eats outside your home, but
you can control the food and
drinks in your home.
Encourage your children to
drink milk with meals and water
between meals.
If they are old enough to be
concerned about their weight, start
teaching your children about nutri-
tion and how to make healthier
food choices.

Pet Corner


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Through
observation, I feel certain that
some animals are much smarter
or more intelligent than others of
the same breed. Are there actual
tests, which measure "animal
intelligence"? Are there any tests
we can try at home?
Thanks, Doc. Your Friendly.
anonymous pet observer.
A: Dear Pet Observer! That is
an awesome question, and one
that led me to do a bit of net surf-
ing! I know by my observations
that some pets are obviously
more intelligent than others. My
feeling is that genetics, and
socialization play a huge factor.
So, the answer is yes. I did find a
few sites for dog and cat IQ tests.
Of those I examined, my favorite
cat IQ site is found at:
Wuzzle.org:cat IQ test. For the
dogs I preferred: Richmond
pets.com: Dog IQ Test. The
questions are a series of tasks
that you can gently challenge
your pet to do, and then you
score them, Based on the points
they score, you then see at what
level you can measure their intel-
ligence. Maybe you should have
a third party with you for objec-
tiveness. I know, I think my Sami
and Luigi are the smartest in the
world. Would you think you
would agree?
Instead of a second question
this week, I thought I would
include an example question
from the IQ tests:
With your dog watching, pre-
tend to reach for a snack and eat
it. Your dog:


A. Watches you intently as if
you are actually eating.
B. Investigates the spot from
which you took the "food" to see
if anything is there.
C. Couldn't be less interested.
D. Seems to realize you're just
pretending.
For your cat:
If you crouch, bark, and grind
your teeth, your cat: ,
Jumps scared on the nearest
chair,
Becomes angry,
Looks at you inquiringly,
Yawns.
Thanks for making me learn
something new! Best Wishes,
Doc Savvy.

Savvy Show on 95.5 F.M. every
Thursday morning at 10:30 a.m.

Priorities; and getting them in order


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Every organization where I
hold membership is concerned
about: Membership! There have
been member- ,.
ship drives in
service organi-
zations, frater-
nal orders, vol-., ,,.
unteer groups, -
clubs related to
hobbies or
other activities,
and churches
as well. Rev. Samuel S.
When peo- Thomas
ple tell me
about "how
things used to be" with great
attendance and all sorts of pro-
grams, they are quick to point out
that it isn't that way now. All of my
life, I've heard aboutthe "good
old days" and how things used to
be; and being old enough to
remember some of the "good old
days" it's not all imagination. I
have a theory about what's hap-
pened and why things seem to
have changed.


There are two parts to it: One
has to do with our lifestyle and the
other has to do with the effects of
an attitude in society. Americans
are supposed to work more hours
than any people n the world. We
also live in a society where there
are usually two breadwinners in
each household. It's no longer
dad who goes to work and moth-
er stays home to raise the chil-
dren. The other night, I saw some
figures on the cost of a new house
and know that the mortgage
alone could eat up one salary for
many households. If you have a
car payment to make, and some
other payments along the way,
that second job is a necessity.
When the weekend or the
evening rolls around, there is the
urge to collapse on the couch and
do something very, very passive. If.
you want to get someone out,
you'd better have something to
offer and it better be very good. It
had better be aimed at giving
something;., not full of problems
or heavy demands or involve
"choosing up sides" in some
organizational squabble. A sec-
ond part of concern over mem-
bership has to do with commit-


ment. Commitment takes energy,
requires time, treasure and talent.
I have heard many times peo-
ple talk about joining and say, "It's
all the same anyway." They will
shop for cars, doctors, appli-
ances, banks, and everything else,
but not when it comes to belong-
ing to a group other than to see if
that's where their friends go. Criti-
cal thinking and "try-before-you-
buy" seems suppressed when
there is a vague feeling that the
group-club-church-organization
does good works, and besides
they have good suppers and share
good stories.
Those on the inside know that
there is more to it than that but
people can belong for years
before they realize just what it is
that they have committed them-
selves to sharing. In spite of
attempts o be "up front" with
newcomers, attrition rates are still
there. The answers for us all are to
try to come up with a straightfor-
,ward statement of what we're
about.
In the case where I'm most
involved, the Church, I've shared
with people that we are a reposi-
tory of values in a society where


there are fewer and fewer values.
That will sometimes strike a
chord with parents who are con-
cerned about how their children
are growing up, or a newly mar-
ried couple that have decided
there must be more to life than
working overtime, or someone
who is suddenly facing a crisis
and has no answers.
For me, the answer lies within
the area where I have made a
commitment and knowing the
answer is there. Sharing that
answer can also answer why it's
worth getting up on a weekend
morning, or what is returned
when support is given.
Today, when membership is a
prime concern for many organi-
zations, my answer is "we have
something special to offer and
we'll share it with you." We have
a "product" like no other and that
makes it all worthwhile. When
we share it, membership will take
care of itself. A Lord that started
out with 12, apparently wasn't
overly-concerned with numbers
but faith. It's about a "pearl of
great price" and being faithful,
and the rest will follow.


Opening the door to personal wholeness


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I didn't know it at the time,
but I grew up in a family with
issues. Don't misunderstand me.
My family was and is a loving
family, but
there were a ,-
few places in
our lives
where things. '.
weren't quite .
right. Even ..
though I know .
that statement
could be made
about every PastorJohn
family I've ever
known, it is Hicks
still hard to
admit that there was dysfunction
in our home. But that fits,
because a large part of dysfunc-
tionality is denying that there is a
problem.
I share this with you because
I've learned that who I was back
then has a big impact on who I
am now. By looking back at the
formative influences of my life, I
can better understand some of
the reasons I act and react the
way I do today. The better I


understand theses traits, the
more likely I am to control,
change, or overcome the ones
that I don't like or that aren't
healthy. That's true for all of us.
All of us can greatly benefit from
some serious self-examination.
Most people learn to live with
their problems. I've seen married
couples living in opposite ends of
the same house. I've seen a man
stay in a job he hated for 20
years. I've seen people with a
secret an elephant in the living
room that everyone knew was
there, but no one dared talk
about. Common problems
include alcoholism or drug use,
and along with it co-dependency
on the part the rest those who
enable the addictions.
Somehow we convince our-
selves that it is easier to live with
a problem than to fix it. It is easi-
er to accept the way things are
than to change the way things
are. And the truth is, sometimes
it is easier, but that doesn't nec-
essarily make it right! Ours is a
faith that proclaims the possible
and the hopeful and the beautiful
in the face of all that is unholy. To
allow ourselves to wallow in


,sickness and sadness is to deny
the single greatest truth of our
faith new life is possible. New
life is always possible.
God gives us the ability to
overcome the problems that
weigh us down. Sometimes we
just need help discovering how
to do it. I found help through a
counselor who told me that I
needed to be more self-centered.
I was shocked. The worse part of
what happened, however, was
that I was prohibited from doing
anything, for my support group
for six weeks. It spread through-
out the whole seminary, and for
six weeks I couldn't even open a
door for anyone. I just had to
receive. My problem was I loved
to do things for others, which
isn't bad in itself, but I was shap-
ing my whole identity and life
around giving. I was taking care
of others. I needed to take care of
myself as well. That six weeks
helped me put my love of giving
,and doing for others into a
healthy perspective.
My counselor didn't fix me,
but my time with my counselor
was a valuable' mirror that
helped me understand how to


help myself be a better person. It
helped me to see what God
could do when I saw myself in a
truer light.
The most difficult thing for
any of us to do is to admit we
need help. Sometimes admitting
our need for help might seem
harder than living with the hurt.
But it isn't. Don't be afraid to do
what you need to do. Don't be
afraid to make the changes you
need to make. If you take noth-
ing else away from this article,
take the message that help, from
God and others, is always avail-
able. All you have to do is ask.
Above all, remember this,
God does provide a way out. Like
the rainbow at the end of days
and nights of rain, like the har-
vest of grain that yields a hun-
dred-fold despite the weeds in
which it grows, like the empty-
tomb of Easter morning, God
promises a happy ending. It may
not be'easy, it may not be quick,
but I am convinced that with
God's help and our best effort, a
new life is always possible. Ask,
knock,' seek. YOU, will receive.
You will find. And the door to
\\ holienri-esS \ ill be opened.


We lived in jail and grew up with history


By Susanne Conrad Morton,
Bobby Conrad and Cossie
Conrad, As told to MaiyAnn
MorrisI

OKEECHOBEE The old
Okeechobee County jail was built
in 1919. It was built with living
quarters for the sheriff's family.
There was a living room, kitchen,
and dining room downstairs and
three bedrooms upstairs. We lived
there while daddy, Louis L. Con-
rad was sheriff, from 1941 to 1945.
Daddy came to Okeechobee
from Michigan in 1919, after
World War I. He worked in Grand-
daddy Edward Conrad's sawmill
at first. Later on he was a deputy
for Pogey Bill when he was sheriff.
He met and married our mother,
Alma Walker Conrad here. She
was from Basinger.
Then when Pogy Bill ran for
chief of police, daddy ran against
him and won. Eventually daddy
ran for sheriff, won and we moved
into the family quarters in the jail;
six of us kids, mama and daddy.
Mama cooked for the prisoners
and us. We had all the land west of
the jail to the railroad. That's
where we had a cow and daddy's
big garden.
All of the kids in town walked
to school and played together
after school. We didn't really have
toys to speak of. We made our
own. I remember we used guava
leaves for money for our games.
In summer, the garden would
be really wet, so we'd make a boat
out of an old piece of roofing tin
and some boards, then pole our-
selves out there into the flooded
garden.
We'd swim in Taylor Creek
with other boys from town: Dude
Watford, Mike Barber, Johnny
Lightsey come to mind.
In the 1930s and '40s the creek
water was clear and clean. It was
nothing to scoop up a handful and
drink when you were thirsty. The
whole area from Taylor Creek to
the lake, to past the cemetery just
before the boys school was our
playground.

Growing up in
Okeechobee
"I used to go up with them on
the barn roof," said Susanne.
"Then they'd get off and throw the
ladder down so I'd have to jump
off by myself. I never got hurt, but
it would have been their fault if I
had!


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history


"Living in the jail was an adven-
ture. If there was a mentally ill per-
son, they stayed at the jail until
there was a bed at the mental hos-
pital in Chattahoochee. Then
daddy would drive them up to
Chattahoochee.
"Then there were jail breaks.
Cossie was old enough to help
daddy find the escaped prisoners.
One time a trustee took the key
from the pantry and took off and
ran out west of town. Cossie was
helping daddy and came across
the escaped men crawling
through the high palmettos."
"I got around in front of them. I
had a big black rubber club we
used as a Billy club and I kept
them there 'til daddy came," said
Cossie, a teenager at the time.
They almost didn't see me, but I
saw them!
"Daddy, as sheriff, was the
security guard for the town. Every
night, he'd go around all the stores
.and check to be sure the doors
were locked. One night, he got a
call' that someone was inside the
A&P store, so he went down to
check.
"He talked the man out and
talking to him found out that he
was stealing groceries to feed his
wife and baby. He had been out of
work and was desperate. Well,
daddy talked to the manager of
the A&P who gave the man a job,
so the problem was solved," he
continued.
"Playing locked in jail was
one of our favorite games, or
forms of torture, depending on
which part you were playing at the
time. After a particularly long stay
one time, I memorized a saying
that was written on the wall of one
of the cells:
"Good, better, best.
Never let it rest.
Till good is better than better,
Then better is better than best."
"When I was about 12 years
old, I'd climb up the bars of the
first level to the second level and
on up to the roof. Daddy never
knew that, of course!" said Bobby.


Independent Newspapers/MaryAnn Morris
Today the old jail building on Fifth Avenue north of Park
Street, in Okeechobee, where the Conrad family lived from
1941 to 1945 waits for grant money to repair the roof as the
first phase of it's restoration.

Sheriff Stuart Whiddon
announces that on Tuesday, Aug.
16, W/M Steven Anthony Pickett,
19, of Palmdale was arrested on
misdemeanor traffic charges of
Driving while License Suspended.
On Wednesday, Aug. 17 at
approximately 4 p.m. Mr. Pickett
was released from the Glades
County Jail and given a court date.
Upon Mr. Pickett's release he
walked across the street to the
Glades County Court House
where there was an unlocked
vehicle. Mr. Pickett entered the
vehicle and stole a pack of Marl-
boro cigarettes.
While in the victim's vehicle,
EMS Director Bob Jones observed
the suspect and yelled to him. Mr.
Pickett exited the vehicle and fled
south on Avenue J. Mr. Jones was
able to flag down Sheriff Whid-


don who was passing by after the
incident occurred and advised
him of the situation.
Sheriff Whiddon began to
chase the suspect who entered
the Country K Drive convenience
store in Moore Haven. Upon Sher-
iff Whiddon entering the store he
identified himself as a law
enforcement officer and the sus-
pect attempted to flee from the
scene. When Sheriff Whiddon
apprehended the suspect he
attempted to fight. Sheriff Whid-
don was able to hold the suspect
until backup units arrived.
Mr. Pickett was booked into
the Glades County Jail on the fol-
lowing charges, burglary of a con-
veyance, petit theft, resisting
arrest with violence, with the
bond to be set by the judge.


Florida employment


rates for July 2005


The state's seasonally adjust-
ed July 2005 unemployment rate
was 3.8 percent, down from the
revised rate of 4.0 percent in
June and down 0.9 percentage
point from 4.7 percent a year
ago. Florida's July 2005 unem-
ployment rate was the lowest
experienced by the state since
November 2000.
Florida's seasonally adjusted
unemployment rate for July
2005 was over a full percentage
point lower than the national
rate of 5.0 percent.
In July 2005, seasonally
adjusted nonagricultural
employment grew by 242,700
jobs over the year, growing at
3.2 percent, nearly twice the
national rate. The national rate
of growth was 1.7 percent for
the same period.
Florida continues to see the
rate of growth exceed other
comparable states. Based on
data from June 2005, the latest
month for which comparable


data are available from other
states, Florida had the fastest
rate of annual job growth
among the 10 most populous
states.
Solid growth continued in
manufacturing's durable goods
sector, which gained 5,500 jobs
(+2.1 percent) since last July.
Much of the growth in durable
goods was in transportation
equipment manufacturing
(+2,100 jobs, +5.0 percent).
Overall, manufacturing has
exhibited over-the-year growth
in 15 of the past 16 months and
has gained 4,300 jobs over the
year.
The Miami-Ft. Lauderdale-
Miami Beach MSA led the state
in employment growth
(+51,800 jobs, +2.3 percent),
followed by the Orlando and
Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwa-
ter MSAs with over-the-year job
growth in July 2005 of +39,800
jobs and +34,700 jobs, respec-
tively.

AG announces reward for resolving Moore case


ORLANDO Attorney Gener-
al Charlie Crist announced that a
reward has. been offered for
information leading to the identi-
fication of the perpetrators of the
Christmas 1951 bombing mur-
ders of civil rights pioneer Harry
T. Moore and his wife Harriette.
Joining the attorney general in
making the announcement was
Frank Brunner of the Florida
Association of Crime Stoppers
(FACS) and Juanita Evangeline
Moore, daughter of Harry and
Harriette Moore.
Anyone with information that
would resolve this case is urged
to call the Crime Stoppers'
Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS (or
1-800-423-8477).
Callers, riay remain anony-
mous if they wish. Should that


information lead to the killer, or
killers, of the Moores whether
living or deceased the person
providing the tip would be eligi-
ble for up to $25,000. The reward
money is being provided by
Crime Stoppers.
"There is someone out there
who knows what happened on
Christmas night, 1951," said
Crist. "Whether the reasons for
coming forward are to clear a
conscience or strictly financial,
we want to hear from those who
can help."
The announcement is the lat-
est step in the investigation,
which was re-opened by Attor-
ney General Crist on Dec. 21,
2004. The investigation, under
the direction of the Attorney Gen-
eral's Office of Civil Rights, has


received tips and has been assist-,
ed by the cooperation of the Unit-
ed States Department of Justice.
Dozens of interviews have
been conducted in search of the
identity of the bomber or
bombers.
"I join with Attorney General
Crist in asking that anyone with
knowledge of this case come for-
ward," said Evangeline Moore."I
am grateful that he and his office
are committed to bringing clo-
sure to those of us who have had
to live with this tragedy for more
than 50 years."
Crime Stoppers is equally
pleased to lend their aid in resolv-
ing this five-decade old mystery.
"The Florida Association of
Crime Stoppers is pleased to part-
ner with the attorney general and


law enforcement to help solve
this 54-year-old crime," said
Frank Brunner, chairman of the
association's Moore Committee.
"We look forward to receiving
critical information through our
anonymous tip line that will ulti-
mately make the difference," he
added.
Harry T. Moore was Florida's
first civil rights pioneer. In 1934,
he organized the Brevard chapter
of the National Association for
the Advancement of Colored Peo-
ple (NAACP). He fought for equal
pay for black teachers, for voting
rights for black citizens and
equality in the justice system.
Harry Moore died from the
blast while Harriette died nine
days later. No one was ever
charged with the crimes.


Crist warns of new scam involving bogus checks


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist warns
Floridians to avoid a new scam
that has surfaced in Florida and
at least 17 other states over the
past week involving forged doc-
uments that appear to be official
checks issued by the state of
Arkansas.
The scam can victimize indi-
viduals or businesses that cash
the checks, costing the victims
several thousand dollars. The
scam targets individuals who
post resumes online, primarily at
the Careerbuilder.com Web site.
These individuals receive e-mail
messages that purport to be
from a European computer
company interested in hiring
them.


The "company" claims to do
business with clients in the Unit-
ed States but needs someone in
the U.S. to help process checks it
has received from those clients.
One of the supposed clients is
the state of Arkansas.
If the target agrees, he is sent
two forged state of Arkansas
checks made out in his name,
one for $2,800 and the other for
$2,400. The checks are high-
grade forgeries of an actual state
of Arkansas check and may not
be detected until they are reject-
ed by a bank, by which time it is
too late. Unlike a more common
check-cashing scheme, in which
victims are instructed to deposit
a check into their own account
and then wire money from that


account, in this scam the recipi-
ents are told to cash the checks
and then wire most of the
money to the "company".
One sure sign of the scam,
Crist said, is that the recipients
are directed to avoid banks and
instead use check-cashing busi-
nesses, liquor stores or similar
businesses willing to convert the
"Arkansas" check into cash. As a
result, Florida businesses that
agree to cash the bogus checks
risk losing the entire amount
when the state of Arkansas treas-
ury refuses to honor them.
. "This is yet another example
of scam artists targeting trusting.
citizens in order to steal their
money," said Crist. "This scam
takes the public's confidence in


checks issued by the govern-
ment and turns it on its head.
Floridians and Florida business-
es should be diligent to make
sure they are not victimized by
this audacious scheme."
According to the Arkansas
Attorney General's Office, the
scam appears to be based in
Turkey, with possible connec-
tions to Latvia and Russia.
Arkansas is working with fed-
eral authorities to investigate,
and has determined that so far
the scam has quickly spread
throughout the nation. While
reports of check sittings in Flori-
da have surfaced, the Attorney
General's Office has not yet
received complaints from any
victims.

'Delight your doggie and pamper your pooch


Independent Newspapers/Mark Young
Billie-Jo Bunting and Ashley (Downtown) Brown file the nails
of Oso, owned by Julio and Carmen Sanchez who was a
recent client at Doc Savvy's Animal Hospital Pet Spa. Oso
had a bath, nail trim, specialized shampoo and conditioning
treatment, and a haircut. Oso was actually twice this size
before she had her hair done.


Roxie, owned by Pete Wessel, gets the finishing touches on a
day at the Pet Spa. Roxie received the works, capped by some
designer doggie cologne and gets her favorite bandanna put
back on by Billie-Jo Bunting, Doc Savvy's newest employee.


By Mark Young
BELLE GLADE If we
haven't actually done it we've
certainly wanted to. It's been a
long, hard week of working.
Hours spent staring at a compOt-
er or sweating in the heat of the
Florida sun. White-knuckled
commutes, dodging, incompe-
tent drivers bordering on the
realm of insanity, and trying to
talk your way out of an expensive
ticket after the typical summer
power outage killed your alarm
clock the night before, making
you late for work yet again.
. The stress builds throughout
your body with the non-stop effi-
ciency of ancient Egyptian pyra-
mid builders. Little invisible
armies of workers pounding and
grinding away at your nerves
until your very existence on earth
becomes the very symbol of
stress.
Our minds wander to the last
vacation where we climbed
aboard our temple the mas-
sage table. Or perhaps it's just
the last time we slipped onto our
throne at the local hair and nail
salon.
Wherever it is, it's just a place
where all of our needs are taken
care of and our only worry is
knowing that the experience
won't last forever. We are left
with a sense of sadness as we
venture back into the everyday
rat race, but also with-a sense of
hope that one day, soon, we will
return to Shangri-La, if only for a
moment of peace.
It's simply a day at the "spa", a
once secret place of servitude
known only to women, but
quickly becoming known to men
who once considered the spa an.
alien, hostile place controlled by
women armed with hot stones
and sharp tools. But men always
wondered what really happened
behind the closed, steamy doors.
Men have quickly broken the
barrier and have discovered the
pleasures of pampering.
But now, the business of
pampering our pooches is
becoming equally popular and
specialty bakeries and groomers


are popping up with.the regulari-
ty of Starbuck's Coffet- shops
along a downtown street in Seat-
tie. But what can these pooch
pampering sessions entail? Just
ask Belle Glades' own Doctor
Noelle Savedoff, a.k.a. Doc
Savvy, a well-respected 'veteri-
narian in Belle Glade who offers
her-infamous "Pet Spa" services
to coincide with several other
unique services such as Doggie
Daycare.
Doc Savvy understands that
releasing stress from the body
isn't just about the pleasures of
being pampered, but that the
therapeutic benefits of routine
spa services are immeasurable to
the health of both humans and
animals.
"Since I love going to the spa
myself, I wanted to create a spe-
cial treatment for my patients,
too," she said.
Doc Savvy said some of the
services offered at her pet spa
include a personalized bath and
conditioning treatment, nail trim,
nail file, ear cleaning, a squirt of
specialized doggie designer
cologne, "followed by a light spa
lunch," said Doc Savvy with her
trademark smile.
The regular clients of Doc
Savvy's Animal Hospital have,
known about and used her serv-
ices for some time, because it's.
offered as a courtesy service to-
her regular clients, but that word
is spreading and the service is
being utilized just for the spa
experience itself. Doc Savvy gives
out certificates at her place of
business and offers them as
prizes on The Doc Savvy Vet
Show, which' airs on 95.5 every,
Thursday morning at 10:30 a.m.
It's a phenomenon that is.
sweeping the country, but while
terminology such as pampered
pooches and doggie daycare
may lead to somebody thinking
it's all about the dogs, Doc Savvy
deals with all sorts of unique ani-
mals and her services are open
to them all.
But the treatment will also
depend on what the dog's need
may be, very much like a human
will require different treatments


Lake Area Varsity Sports Schedules


when they go to the spa.
"Not all animals get the same
treatment," she said. "We make
it a very personalized thing. If a
patient has dry skin, then they get
a certain shampoo treatment. If
the skin is oily, then they get a dif-
ferent shampoo treatment. But
they all get the nails done, their
ears cleaned, and the doggie
cologne."
Doc Savvy is a pioneer in pet
care and offers several unique
services not found anywhere
else. Her doggie daycare busi-
ness has become very popular
for pet owners who work and
would rather leave their beloved
pet in the care of a quality profes-
sional than home alone, or out-
side to fend for themselves. Doc
Savvy and her entire staff have
been trained by the American
Red Cross for pet and people
CPR and are qualified instructors
themselves.
Her attentive staff has gained
the praises of animals across the
Glades area, and, of course, their
owners who love to pick up their
fresh and fluffy loved ones. But a
day at the spa and personalized
attention from Doc Savvy and her
staff begs the question, "Can
humans take advantage of your

Oso up to inspect which brand
of doggie designer cologne
she would like to try. Will be

9, or White Dalmations.
services?"
With a short laugh and know-
ing smile, Doc Savvy said, "Ha!
Well no, but a few gentlemen
have tried! No names mentioned
to protect the innocent!"
Doc Savvy can be reached at
(561) 996-5500 and her hospital
is located at 250 SE 1st Street, in
Belle Glade.

the instructor were very proud


about these students achieve-
ment at 'this tournament. Con-
gratulations to all of them.
The belt testing for students
of Mr. Luis Maisonet Taekwon-
do was held Aug. 6, and was a
successful testing. These stu-
dents worked very hard for this
event.

Every teacher wishes she or
he had more time to give to
each student to listen and
respond, to individualize
instruction, and to meet the
unique needs of each learner.
Volunteers can help make
this wish come true. They
offer an extra pair of hands,
eyes and ears. Through an
organized, structured school
volunteer program, school
volunteers can help give each
child more read-aloud time,
extra chances to respond,
immediate confirmation of
correct answers, and the car-
ing that motivates a child to
learn and to succeed. They
also serve as bridges to the
community and supportive
spokespersons for the
school's programs.


No longer are school volun-
teers only parents they are
also grandparents, high school
and college students, retirees
and other older Americans.
Would you like to become a
school volunteer? Plan to
attend the Volunteer Registra-
tion and Orientation on
Wednesday, Aug. 31, at 8:30
a.m. at Moore Haven Elemen-
tary School. All of our volun-
teers must be approved by the
Glades County School Board
and may be subject to a back-
ground check. If you have
more questions concerning
volunteering, contact the coor-
dinator at the elementary
school, Kristi Hingson, at 946-

ence in the life of a child this

Lady Tigers face


the unknown


By Mark Young
Under the guidance of first-
year coach Dace Mazzei, the
Clewiston Lady Tigers volley-
ball team will face several
unknown factors as the begin-
ning of net season nears.
Coming off one of the best
seasons the program has seen
in years, expectations are still
high, despite the typical prob-
lems that tend to occur when a
coaching change is made.
Thrown into the equation is the
fact that coach Mazzei has
recently arrived from Ohio and
will have to face programs that
are virtually unknown.
But despite the many prob-
lems that face this year's net
squad, the Lady Tigers are
ready to take this season one
match at a time leading up to
the mid October district tourna-
ment and return plenty of expe-
rience from last year's success-
ful season.
Senior Miranda Waddell will
be a key figure in repeating that
success, as she will be looked
to for team leadership on the
court. Also returning are sen-
iors Brittani McNeil, Krystal
Walker, and Dynisha Thomas.
The Lady Tigers will fill the
court with plenty of experience
and the athleticism of freshman
Josie Boykin, who coach
Mazzei said could make an
impact for her squad this year,
as a young up and comer, as
well as sophomore Mary Heg-
ley whose sheer athletic skills
could earn her a starting spot.


But there is much to be done
before Clewiston's season
opener against. Dunbar, at
home, with a game time sched-
uled for 6:30 p.m.
"We need a lot of improve-
ment in certain areas, but as a
team, we are working very well
together," said coach Mazzei. "I
haven't seen a lot of that extra
stuff that comes with this kind
of deal. They are all very sup-
portive of one another and I'm
seeing daily improvements
because they are all committed
to working hard."
The Lady Tigers are busy try-
ing to perfect their offense, but
coach Mazzei is fairly
impressed with the passing
skills of her squad, which is the
key in launching a successful
offense. Only the start of the
season will gauge what
improvements the Lady Tigers
really need.
"We are very capable of
being a good team," said coach
Mazzei. "All we need to do is
pull all of these things we are
working on together and put to
the test what we've learned.
Right now it's hard to deter-
mine where we are at because
our test is playing against our
JV team who is veryyoung."
That first test will come Aug.
29 against Dunbar, but the Lady
Tigers are being realistic in.
approaching the regular season
as something of a test period
.for when it really counts come
mid October.


Pahokee tops Tigers in Kickoff Classic


By Bill Fabian
and Jeff Barwick
CLEWISTON The Pahokee
Blue Devils visited Cane Field on Fri-
day to face the Clewiston Tigers in
the Kickoff Classic and came out on
top, 21-0. The Blue Devils brought a
lot with them namely, the crown
as the reigning State Champion in
Class 2B, a lot of talented athletes,
and a huge crowd.
When the game was called with
less than 30 seconds remaining due
to a technical problem with the sta-
dium lights, Pahokee had clearly
made the case that they have their
sights set on a repeat as state cham-
pion.
The Tigers, clearly hoping to
rebuild after last year's disappoint-
ing 3-5 campaign, showed some
bright spots in their defensive rush-
ing abilities but have work left in
most other phases.
For Pahokee, senior Quarter-
back Robert Love completed 7-of-
20 passes for 122 yards with sopho-
more wide receiver Martavious
Odoms catching five for 97 yards,
including a 39-yard touchdown
with only seconds left in the first
half.
Love was impressive as a dual
passing and running threat, having
also scored a one-yard rushing
touchdown on third and goal
against a stacked Tiger defense
The Blue Devil rushing attack
was led by senior Anthony Atwell
with 75 yards on 15 attempts,
including a 15-yard touchdown run
with 34 seconds remaining in the
contest. Freshman Vincent Smith
also gained 62 yards on nine carries
for the Blue Devils.
The Pahokee offensive and
defensive lines also managed to
dominate the Tiger front. Led by a
young and very big front, the Paho-
kee defense managed to hurry the


INI/Bill Fabian
Clewiston head coach Tommy Morrell led a Tiger squad look-
ing to rebuild after a disappointing 3-5 season last year.


Tiger offense throughout the game,
and allowed very little penetration
on the other side of the ball.
The Tigers had little offensive
success in the first half. Several big
opportunities to take advantage of
great field position were lost to
interceptions and dropped passes..
The Blue Devils committed a big
turnover in the second quarter on a
fumble recovery by Tiger senior
Daniel Collins during asteamrolling
drive by the Pahokee offense. How-
ever, the Tigers failed to capitalize,
instead losing possession to an
interception by senior defensive
back Ricky Gary on a long gamble
of a pass on first and 10.
The Tigers did mount an offen-
sive drive in the third period, but ran
out of gas when they reached the
Blue Devil 19-yard line and turned


the ball over on downs. That was
generally how the game. went for
the Tigers, who exhibited shaky
play with several broken plays, and
dropped passes to open receivers..
Pahokee also showed some
signs of being a new squad, getting
off to a slow start during a scoreless
first half. In fact, the Tiger defense
managed to keep the game close
by holding Pahokee scoreless
through the first and third quarters.
The. Tiger rushing defense put for-
ward a respectable .performance
led by junior linebackers Carl
Whitehead (seven tackles) and
David Pope (five tackles) and senior
Nose Tackle Pedro Diaz (five tack-
* les). The run defense had a strong
game, which could have made a
difference had the offense found its
footing against the phN sical Paho-


kee defense.
However, the Blue Devils ulti-
mately managed to control the
game, as theywere able to keep the
offense on the field for long drives
throughout the game.,
Clewiston's junior Tailback
Jamal Hubert rushed for 82 yards
on 10 carries and senior Randi Scott
added 41 yards on eight attempts.
Tiger junior Quarterback Jared
Combasswas unable to get Clewis-
ton's passing game going in the
face of a hard rushing defensive
front and the speedy Blue Devil
defensive secondary. Combass dis-
played considerable arm strength,
but could not consistently get the
ball within reach for the Tiger
receivers.
Clewiston Coach Tommy Mor-
. rell, beginning his third season,
said, "Well, it's evident that we have
a lot of work to do before we are up
to an acceptable level for a Clewis-
ton team. We must improve our
line blocking, both rushing and
pass protection, and our pass
defense has got to get tough. We
made too many mental errors
tonight."
The Tigers open the regular sea-
son Friday, Aug. 26, when Planta-
tion American Heritage visits Cane
Field in a non-district 2A match-up.
The Blue Devils will travel in
their season opener against Royal
Palm Beach on Friday.

Gators topple Rams in Kick Off Classic


By Mark Young
BELLE GLADE The Glades
Day Gators treated their hometown
fans to a 40-13 victory during the
Aug. 19 Kick Off Classic with the
junior varsity and varsity clubs shar-
ing equal duty on the gridiron bat-
tlefield.
The JV squad received the call to
play the first half and walked away
with a 20-6 when behind the run-
ning of freshman upstart Brandon
Dean who accounted for all of the
Gator scoring. Dean put up the first
points of the game after breaking
loose for 30-yards of open- real
estate in the Gators' first drive of the
game. The two-point conversion
attempt failed, but the Gators
jumped out to a quick 6-0 lead with
8:35 left in the first quarter.,
The Rams would not answer
until early in the second quarter
when a Gator pass attempt slipped
out of the hands of the quarterback
and fell well short of his intended
'target. A Ram defensive back
picked off the errant pass and
returned it 25 yards for the score,.
but their two-point conversion also
failed, knotting up the game at 6-6
with 11:51 left in the second quar-
ter.
The Gators responded on the
ensuing kick off with Dean scam-
pering through the Ram special
teams unit for an 85-yard touch-
down return to put the Gators back
in front 12-6 after a second, two-
point attempt failed.
The Gator defense was relent-
less behind freshman linebacker
Hudson Hawkins whose hard-hit-


ting intensity fortified the middle,
stifling the Ram running attack.
Dean would put the icing on the
cake with a 45-yard touchdown run
late in the second quarter and Gator
quarterback. Coleman Sample
connected with Clay Crissman for
the two-point conversion to seal
their 20-6 victory over the JV Rams.
The Rams conducted one last
desperation drive, but that drive
ended when Gator defensive back
Cody Davis picked off a Ram pass
to secure the Gator victory.
The clock and the scoreboard
.were cleared for the two varsity
squads who took over the second
half action and after exchanging
possessions to open the game, it
would be the Gators who would
strike first. If there was any doubt
that junior Gator quarterback Josh
McGregor could resume a potent
Gator air attack, following the grad-
uation of their 1,800 yard passer
from a year ago, McGregor ensured
Gator fans that there is plefity of
excitement to come.
McGregor led a precision air
attack against the Ram secondary
with a 30-yard strike to Andrew
Boccanfuso and a 20-yard strike to
Ricky Reitz. Boccanfuso had also -
hauled in a 26-yard touchdown
pass, but it was called back on a
penalty, McGregor hit Frank Lugo
on a nine-yard' connection before
his 20-yard hook up to Reitz set the
ball up on the Ram one-yard line
and Lloyd Monds took care of the
rest with a one-yard plunge for the
score.
Dustin Anaya drilled the point


after attempt and the Gators went
up 7-0.with 6:22 left in the third. The
Rams were determined to test their
own air campaign, but a Gator
defensive secondary would have
nothing of it and put the Rams out
after three plays on their ensuing
drive. The Gator offense went back
to work on their own 43-yard line,
but wouldn't stay there for long.
Ismael Ceniceros broke free for
34 yards to set up the Gators on the
John Carroll 21-yard line but back
to back penalties pushed the Gators
back to the 36, but that was no
problem for McGregor who, subse-
quently connected with Andrew
Joseph for a 36-yard strike. The
Gators went up 13-0 with 4:08 left in
the third after a low snap forced
Joseph, who also holds for the kick-
er, to attempt a two-point try, which
ultimately failed. I
Glades Day would strike again
early in the fourth quarter when
McGregor picked off a Kevin
O'Brien pass and returned it 17.
yards to the Ram 33-yard line. Lugo
picked up 11 yards on the first play,
McGregor hit Travis Hendry for a
dozen yards on the second play,
and Lugo punched it in from eight
yards out on the third play of the
short drive. Anaya drilled the point
after and the Gators claimed a 20-0
advantage with 11:38 left to play.
John Carroll took advantage of a
Gator fumble midway through the
final quarter and drove from their
38-yard line to pay dirt with O'Brien
connecting with Dave Lineburg
from nine yards out to cap the drive.
But with 2:37 left to play, the


Gators would run out the clock to
secure the varsity 20-7 victory and
the overall 40-13 win.
"I saw a lot of good things
tonight," said Gator head coach
Craig Dobson. "We distributed the
ball to everybody on offense and
the defense played superbly. Our
offensive line locked on tonight and
punched a lot of nice holes."
Coach Dobson was happy with
his squad's overall performance,
but expressed some concern in
secondary's pass coverage.
"I have some concern about our
pass defense," he said. "And %e
didn't get any sacks tonight and did-
n't really get a lot of pressure on the
quarterback. They threw the ball a
lot tonight and when you throw
that many times, you are going to
have to some completions."
The Rams went to the air 23
times with O'Brien completing
eight passes with one TD and one
pick. Through a flurried air attack,
the Rams only mustered 43 yards of
passing.
McGregor had seven comple-
tions in a dozen attempts for 141
yards, had one TD pass, and one
interception for two quarters of
play.
The Gators will officially open
the season on the Road, Aug. 26, as
they make the three and a half hour
trip to Eustis.
"They are saying -that we can't
go up and their win," said coach
Dobson to his teamafter the game.,
"I'm telling you that we aren't going
all the way up thereto lose."

Terriers struggle at Kick Off Classic; blanked by Brahmans


By Mark Young
It took all of 11 seconds for
the Okeechobee Brahmans to
score their first touchdown after
Moore Haven won the coin toss
but opted to defer to Okee-
chobee who gladly took 'the
opening kick 78 yards for the
score. Okeechobee's Rashad
Kelly hauled in the kick off at the
22-yard line, ducked and dodged
through a sea of black jerseys,
and was untouchable after find-
ing enough daylight to make it a
sprint to the goal line.
Moore Haven's Nathaniel
Sanders blocked the point after
attempt, but the Brahmans
jumped out to a 6-0 lead with
11:49 left in the first quarter.
Sophomore Jerrell Smith
almost returned the favor after a
25-yard kick off return set up the
Terriers on Okeechobee's 35-
yard line, but the Brahman
defense set the early tone and sti-
fled the Terriers up front. Moore
Haven attempted to convert on a
fourth and four play, but came
up two yards short.
The Brahman defense quickly
turned the ball over to their
offense who marched 73 yards
on a 3:12 drive, highlighted by a
59-yard run from Kenny Spencer
who eventually capped the drive
with a three-yard plunge. Moore
Haven's Jyles Langdale blocked
the kick, but the Brahmans
opened up a 12-0 lead with 6:20
left in the first.
Moore Haven put together
their best drive of the day in
response with Smith and Barrett
Ringstaff providing much of the
work out of the backfield. After a
short kick, the Terriers marched
from their own 40-yard line all
the way to the Brahman 24.
Moore Haven's Huggins
dropped back for his first pass
attempt of the game and found
Brahman linebacker Codey
Storey instead, who subsequent-
ly took the interception 65 yards
in the other direction. A holding
penalty after the pick, brought
the ball back to the Terrier 49-
yard line and after driving to the
Terrier 10,. returned the favor
with a fumble.


Irdnependeri Newspapers Mark Young
Moore Haven's Ronald Huggins puts a potential punt block-
er on his back, giving Barrett Ringstaff just enough time to
get the punt away during last Thursday's Kick Off Classic.


Terrier head coach Andy Ringstaff addresses players from
both Moore Haven and Okeechobee following a joint post-'
game gathering. Coach Ringstaff offered thanks to both
teams for their display of sportsmanship and class.


Moore Haven's Nathaniel
Sanders fell on the loose ball on
his own 10-yard line, but a
relentless Brahman defense
drove the Terriers back to their
own one, where they were
forced to punt. Okeechobee
resumed offensive operations on
the Moore Haven 34-yard line
and after two long runs from
Spencer and Kelly, Timmy


Williams capped the short drive
with a three-yard run.
Okeechobee took an 18-0
lead with 4:55 left in the first
after failing to complete a two-
point conversion attempt. Moore
Haven put the ball on the ground
on their next possession, allow-
ing the Brahmans to set up shop
on the Terrier 24-yard line.
Okeechobee responded


quickly to the opportunity with a
24-yard TD reception.
The Brahmans duplicated
their efforts in the second half,
following an exchange of
turnovers. Okeechobee's Rafe
Erwin recovered a fumble on
Moore Haven's opening second
half drive, but Moore Haven's
Ringstaff picked off a Conrad
pass.
Moore Haven drove to, Okee-
chobee's 18-yard line where they
were halted on a fourth and
short conversion attempt by a
stubborn Brahman defense. The
Brahmans drove 82 yards, high-
lighted by a 64-yard run, and
capped the drive with a five-yard
score and the two-point conver-
sion for a Brahman 34-0 lead
with 4: r left to play in the third.
The Brahmans would score
again to round out their 41-0 win
over the Terriers.
Moore Haven is looking to
improve upon their 3-6 record of
a year ago and the good news is
that Kick Off Classic doesn't
count, but the bad news is that
there is work to be done.
"We have a lot of work to do
on the offensive front," said
coach Ringstaff. "Our offensive
scheme is fine, but the execution
of the offense needs a lot of
work. We just have to step up
and get it done. Our younger
players have to step up and fill in
roles. We are asking them to
grow up fast."
Moore Haven's biggest chal-
lenge will be overcoming the
morale buster of a 41-0 loss, as
they look at a much-improved
Lake Placid team as their home
opener Aug. 26. The Dragons
concluded last season with a 1-9
record, but coach Ringstaff said:
they will come to play when they
arrive to Terrier Field.'
The Terriers have a solid
opportunity to open their season
with a strong statement, as they
play host to the first three games
of the years. They will face Lake
Placid, Frostproof, and Christian
out of Jacksonville as their first
three opponents. The three
squads have a combined record
of 9-21.
Lake Placid's only victory last


year came against the Terriers in
a 37-7 victory. The Terriers will
face some familiar district foes in
St. John Neumann arid Evangeli-
cal, but adds Glades Day to their
district rivals this year. Moore
Haven defeated St. John last year
and lost to Evangelical.
Other familiar opponents
from last season include Ben-
jamin, who Moore Haven beat
44-14 and LaBelle who defeated
Moore Haven 42-13.
The Terriers averaged more
than 20 points a game last year,
but improvements on the offen-
sive line will be needed to put up,
the kind of numbers Moore
Haven scored last year. The Terri-






In I[( G\ Lilk nnd Hilih
I" nl urin.u c:.mp( n


er defense allowed more than 27
points per game and- the ratio
obviously led to the 3-6 season a
year ago.
It's difficult to judge a 41-0
defeat at the hands of a larger
school like Okeechobee who is
now 4A compared to Moore
Haven's Class A status. District
competition will determine
where the Terriers truly stand
and they host two out of the
three district games. Shaking off
the 41-0 loss in the Kick Off Clas-
sic will also be a gut check for
the Terriers who have an oppor-
tunity with three consecutive
home games as the official sea-
son gets ready to get underway.

Raiders prepare for their season opener


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza

BELLE GLADE Raider Head
Coach Willie Snead said it feels
good to be at the helm of the
Glades Central football team, the
coach having roots dug deep in
Belle Glade.
He remembers his own ascen-
sion in the football world, starting
with humble beginnings in Belle
Glade and leading all the way to
the pros. With the opportunity to
lead the Raiders this year, Coach
Snead is taking all that he's
learned and, applying it to the-
young players now under his
watch.
The coach says he is faced
with guiding a young team this
year, with plenty of new faces.
Though wide-eyed and excited,
the players have been applying
themselves in preparing for the
new season, the coach said, start-
ing practice as early as spring in
anticipation of the fall.
As he heads into the new sea-
son, Coach Snead is pushing one
thing more than anything else -
the fundamentals. The coach said
the Raiders in the past two years
have performed exceptionally,
but, entering the playoffs, the
team, is sometimes unable to per-


form as it has during the regular
season .
Last year, the Raiders went 10-
0 heading into the playoffs,
defeating the Pahokee Blue Dev-
ils, before losing in the playoffs.
The Devils eventually won the
state championship title in their
division.
Coach Snead is no stranger to
the Glades, having graduated
from Glades Central High School
before moving on to college and
then the pros, drafted by the Jets
and playing for the Houston Oil-
- ers at one time.
"Some of us here have been at
the highest level and we can
share that with our players," he
said. In fact, the coach said, some
former Raiders still come back
from time to time to work with
the players, including, among
others, Ray McDonald.
Though the team is young, the
coach notes the fact as one of the
strengths of the football team, as
players preparing for their first
run in varsity display the hunger
and the energy and the determi-
nation that, the coach said, will
factor heavily in winning games.
Already, the coaches are keep-
ing a close eye on a few stand
outs on the team, including jun-


ior running back Deonte Thomp-
son, quarterback Bi yoiii Mann
and running,back Aston Samuels
- players the coaches feel will
play a pivotal role in the team's
success.
The coach fully realizes the
expectations that the community
has for the football team, and he
hopes to make the community
proud, but, at least during prac-
tice and among the head coach-
es, living up to expectations is not
heavy in the minds of staff, he
said. It all boils down to practic-
ing and focusing on the simple
fundamentals, coach Snead said.
Everything else, he believes, will
fall into place.
Of course, having a good
coaching staff goes a long way,
also, coach Snead said. Of his
staff, he remarked, "They are just
outstanding. This is the best
coaching staff I've ever had. They
are passionate and energetic and
we don't coach with our hands in
our pockets. It's a good situa-
tion."
Last week, the team prepared
to face off against Royal Palm
Beach and this week faces Palm
Beach Central High School.
Coach Snead said he expected to
do well in both games.


Coach Stephen Fields, a new
addition to the team this year, is
':,ptirnistic. "These kids want to
-be loved, coached," said Coach
Fields. "They're definitely
focused. The coaching staff does
not accept mediocrity."

Lohmann takes gold at Junior Olympics


On Thursday, Aug. 4, Brianna
Lohmann, a gymnast at Royal
Gymnastics in Wellington and a
resident of Belle Glade, compet-
ed in New Orleans at the Junior
Olympic Games with a gold
medal finish.
Hundreds of gymnasts from
around the country traveled to
the Municipal Auditorium at the
edge of the French Quarter for
this national competition. By 7
a.m. the gymnasts were warm-
ing up and getting ready to com-
pete. Lohmann's first event was
the floor exercise, which she
completed with a score of 9.25.
The performance irritated an
old heel injury causing a notice-
able limp, but she decided to
continue to compete. She then
moved to the vault where she
scored an impressive 9.5. She
scored a 9.1 on the bars, her
third event, and she closed her
competition with a strong 9.6
routine on the beam.
At the awards ceremony, the
23 competitors in the 11-year old
division had no idea how they
had placed in the events. The
vault results were called first and
Lohmann was excited to hear
her name announced as the gold
medal score. She went on to
claim the silver medal on beam,


the bronze medal on bars, and
6th place on floor. She finished
with a total score of 37.4, which
was the highest for her division
and allowed her to capture the
overall gold. She was admittedly
very excited about her accom-
plishment and commented,
"This is so cool! I guess hard


work really does pay off!"
Brianna is a sixth grader at
Glades Day School, and her
mother, Angee Lohmann,
grandmother, Frances Adams,
sisters Lizzee and Hana
Lohmann and friend Sara Lez-
cano accompanied her on the
trip.

Kevin Lutkenhaus. They are both
"very committed." to continuing
LMS' success, she commented.
Already this year, administration
has changed the class schedule to
a straight seven-period day (no
alternating days as they were
doing the past few years) and
have allowed more choices in the
dress code. So far, she said, stu-
dents and parents have respond-
ed well.
This year there are also extra
requirements for students below

County, the city of Frostproof
and South West Florida Water
Management District, a plan is
under way to put a pipe under
Wall Street from Lake Clinch to
Lake Reedy. They have hired the
engineering firm Chastain Skill-
man to do the design work and
to find the best option for the
project. The engineering phase
of the project is budgeted at
$75,000, with $25,000 each com-
ing from the city, the county and
the water management district.
From Lake Reedy, -water
flows through a creek to Lake
Arbuckle, then from Lake
Arbuckle through Arbuckle
Creek to Lake Istapoga and
eventually to the Kissimmee
River, which empties into Lake
Okeechobee.
Flooding around Lake Clinch
caused some Frostproof resi-
dents to be concerned about
potential health hazards due to
septic tank overflows. Gene Jef-
fers of the Polk County Health
Department said the public
swimming areas in Lake Clinch
were tested last week for bacte-
ria and came back in the safe
range. He said fish caught in the
lake should be safe as long as it
is cooked properly.
Approximately 20 miles from
Frostproof, Saddlebag Lake has
flooded, threatening homes. Mr.
Spence said power to more than
250 homes was turned off due to
safety concerns because of the
high water.
"We 'have seen an extreme
rise in the lake levels, wetland
levels and groundwater levels in
the past five years, just from
rainfall," he said.
Mr. Spence said they hope to
pump water from Saddlebag
Lake two miles to Lake Rosalie.
This will require getting permis-
sion from two water manage-
ment districts as well as private
property owners. He added they
will also have to make sure the
project will not negatively
impact Lake Rosalie. He said the
county has allocated $500,000
for that project and they hope to
be able to start work in two to
three weeks.
Bill Graf with the South Flori-
da Water Management District
said last hurricane season left
natural waterways that
would normally let the water
move slowly south clogged
with debris. Polk County was hit
by Hurricanes Charley, Frances
and Jeanne and received a lot of
water from Ivan in the form of a
tropical storm.
"We had a lot of water from
the hurricanes," Mr. Graf said,


"If my home was sitting
in water, I would want
faster relief too, but
natural systems take
time."
Bill Graf,
South Florida
Water Management District

and the area did not dry out dur-
ing the "dry" season. A wet
spring meant the lakes were
already higher than normal at
the start of the "wet" season in
June.
"In June, the Polk County
area received 200 percent of nor-
mal rainfall and June is histori-
cally awet month," Mr. Graf con-
tinued. "That's an incredible
amount of rainfall."
The debris clogging the
creeks made it more difficult for
the lakes to drain and this led to
flooding.
Mr. Graf said a grant from the
Natural Resource Conservation
Service is being used to remove
the storm debris. He said even
after the creeks are clear of
debris, it will take time for the
water to move.
"Creeks aren't as efficient in
flow as a canal," he said. Creeks
are better environmentally
because the vegetation in the
creeks helps clean the water as it

flows through the system, but
canals move water faster.
"In the long run, creeks are
healthier because they are natu-
ral, but it will take a little while
for water to get through the nat-
ural creeks," he said.
Mr. Graf said homeowners
are upset that the lakes can't be
lowered faster and this is under-
standable.
"If my home was sitting in
water, I would want faster relief
too, but natural systems take
time,." he said.
Pumping is not an option
because it would just move the
problem and flood someone
else, he continued.
Continued rains, nearly every
afternoon, also make it difficult
to lower lake levels.
Mr. Graf said water managers
have been able to lower the
Kissimmee Chain of Lakes to
within normal schedules, so
there is room for the water once
it gets through the creek system.
He said there is some con-
cern about how much water is
coming down the Kissimmee
River into Lake Okeechobee,
which is also much higher than
normal.
"We would like Lake Okee-
chobee to be lower," he said.
"But when there are people
whose homes are in water, they
are our first concern."
He said they are bound by
federal mandate.

STRAIGHT TALK ABOUT |

HENDRY REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER I

SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT:

COURT RULING DID NOT "CLEAR" HOSPITAL

SUSPICIOUS LACK OF IMPORTANT RECORDS SHOWS
4 QUESTIONABLE MANAGEMENT

The hospital's failure to keep detailed financial records makes it impossible to determine how the
taxpayers' $4.5 million a year is being spent.
U.S. Sugar filed a lawsuit demanding that public records, showing how taxpayer dollars are spent, be
made public.
The Judge ruled that, "THE COURT CAN
ORDER THE HOSPITAl TO PRODUCE DOCUMENTS I '
THAT DON'T EXIST, EVEN IF THEY SHOULD HAVL
EXISTED."
The hospital admitted in court that:
It doesn't have bids or appraisals for a $750,s)000i
real estate deal, (another sweetheart deal). .I
SIt doesn't keep detailed financial records and I a
SIt doesn't know if it's making or losing money
in any individual department.
The hospital's largest vendor, Physical Therapy
Dynamics:
Is owned by the wife of the hospital board
chairman,
Is paid more than $400,000 a year,
Possesses a no bid, automatic renewing contract
and
Has its rent and overhead expenses paid for by
your tax dollars.

THE BOTTOM LINE--
Tax dollars that should be used to improve our community's hospital and build new
facilities are being wasted by gross mismanagement.




The people of Hendry County deserve quality health care and they have a
RIGHT TO KNOW HOW THEIR TAX DOLLARS ARE BEING SPENT
'IHOwithout having to go to court.

USDA reminds producers of


their sign-up deadlines


Farm Bureau urges focus on

plight of Panhandle farmers


GAINESVILLE State Execu-
tive Director Kevin Kelley urged
farmers and ranchers to sign-up
for the Crop Disaster Program
(CDP) and Livestock Assistance
Program (LAP) in advance of the
approaching deadline.
"These programs have
helped thousands of producers
recover from the devastating
effects of severe weather in
counties that have received a
Presidential disaster declara-
tion," said Kelley. "I encourage
all eligible farmers and ranchers
to enroll in these programs now
before the sign-up periods close
in order to participate and
receive this valuable assistance."
For the CDP 2003 and 2004,
the sign-up deadline is Sept. 9,
2005. For the CDP 2005, the
enrollment period ends Dec. 16,
2005. The CDP provides assis-
tance to producers who suffered


2003, 2004 or 2005-crop losses
as the result of damaging weath-
er or related conditions. The
2005 crop losses are limited to
those losses caused by a hurri-
cane season in counties that had
a Presidential disaster declara-
tion. Nearly $2 billion has been
paid to producers since'sign-up
began in mid-March 2005.
Producers can receive disas-
ter benefits for crop losses for
only one of the 2003, 2004 or
2005 crop years. However, if a
producer has been paid a CDP
payment for a 2003 or 2004 crop
loss and is subsequently
approved for a CDP payment for
a greater 2005 crop loss, the
amount of the 2003 or 2004 pay-
ment will be deducted from the
2005 payment and the difference
will be paid to the producer.
The sign-up period for LAP
2003 and 2004 ends Sept. 9,


2005. The LAP provides pay-
ments to livestock producers for
grazing losses that occurred in
2003 or 2004 if the producers'
grazing lands are in counties
declared primary disaster areas
under Presidential or Secretarial
declarations. Livestock produc-
ers in contiguous counties are
not eligible. Payments to produc-
ers enrolled in LAP are expected
to begin in late summer.
USDA has also made other
programs available to assist
farmers and ranchers, including
the Emergency Conservation
Program, Federal Crop Insur-
ance, Noninsured Crop Disaster
Assistance Program and emer-
gency loans.
USDA's Web site, http://disas-
ter.fsa.usda.gov/, provides pro-
ducers with one convenient
location for details on new and
existing disaster assistance.


GAINESVILLE Florida Farm
Bureau is urging the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture to help resi-
dents of the Florida Panhandle
who are still suffering from dam-
age to crops and infrastructure
resulting from Hurricane Dennis,
which made early-season landfall
July 10, 2005.
Farmsteads in Santa Rosa,
Okaloosa, Escambia and Franklin
Counties bore the brunt of the
storm and farmers there are
struggling to repair and rebuild
structures as the harvest season
*draws near.
"Emergency funding from
USDA is critical," said Florida
Farm Bureau President Carl B.
Loop Jr. in a letter to USDA Secre-
tary Mike Johanns. "It is my
understanding that over $40 mil-.
lion of the previously allocated
Section 32 hurricane disaster
funds for Florida remains after all
other hurricane damage claims


have been settled from 2004. I am
hopeful that you will consider
using a portion of this remaining
allocation to fund this request."
Loop said Florida Farm
Bureau, the state's largestgeneral
interest agricultural organization,
is emphasizing the plight of West
Florida farmers. Santa Rosa
County was the hardest hit in
Florida with farmers losing about
half of the cotton crop and virtual-
ly all of the of bean, corn and pea
crops. Santa Rosa also lost an esti-
mated 40 percent of pine trees
planted under the USDA's Conser-
vation Reserve Program.
Okaloosa and Escambia Counties
lost 25-40 percent of the cotton
crop. Other crops were also dam-
aged, as was the oyster industry
in coastal communities, particu-
larly in Franklin County.
On July 25,2005 those counties
were declared federal disaster
areas, along with Bay, Calhoun,


Gadsden, Gulf, Hernando,
Holmes, Jefferson, Lafayette, Leon,
Liberty, Madison, Taylor, Wakulla
and Washington Counties.
Florida Farm Bureau wants
USDA and other government agen-
cies to keep focused on the fact that
the effects of Hurricane Dennis are
still being felt, said Loop.
"I appreciate any assistance
you can provide to further allevi-
ate the pain being felt by the farm
families impacted by Hurricane
Dennis," he told Johanns.
Loop praised USDA's immedi-
ate response in the wake of Den-
nis. The USDA's Food and Nutri-
tion Service procured USDA food
commodities for mass feeding in
shelters and worked in partner-
ship with nonprofit agencies
including the Red Cross and Salva-
tion Army. Local USDA offices also
obtained formula, food and water
specifically for feeding infants in
the Florida hurricane shelters.

March of Dimes Florida awards grant to UF Florida


GAINESVILLE To help edu-
cate health care professionals
about the importance of folic acid
in women's diets, the March of
Dimes Florida Chapter has award-
ed a $49,400 grant to the Universi-
ty of Florida.
The funds are being used by
the Florida Folic Acid Coalition,
based in UF's food science and
human nutrition department, to
encourage women to take 400
micrograms of the vitamin every
day to help reduce their risk of
having a baby with serious birth
defects of the brain and spine,
also known as neural, tube
defects.
Gail Rampersaud, a registered
dietitian and assistant in nutrition
research and education at UF's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences, said an estimated 50 to
70 percent of neural tube defects
could be prevented if all women
of childbearing age took folic acid


every day. She said research
shows the vitamin may also
reduce the risk of other types of
birth defects, including defects of
the heart, face and limbs.
Despite ongoing education
efforts, less than one-half of
women age 18 to 45 years in the
United States and Florida take
folic acid on a daily basis. Ram-
persaud said healthcare providers
are a vital link in helping promote
folic acid awareness and use
among women in Florida.
"However, a survey of health-
care professionals in Florida
found that less than two-thirds of
pediatricians and family physi-
cians in Florida knew the specific
folic acid recommendations, and
one-half or fewer recommended
folic acid to their female patients
of childbearing age all or most of
the time," she said. "These data
indicate a- need for ongoing and
continued education of health-


care providers regarding folic acid
health benefits and recommenda-
tions."
With the help of the March of
Dimes grant, existing folic acid
educational materials will be
updated and training will be con-
ducted at healthcare sites in Flori-
da. Rampersaud said the coalition
will also develop a Web:based
training module on its Web site
http://www.FolicAcidNow.net.
Other educational activities
include staffing exhibit booths at
healthcare provider meetings in
Florida to distribute materials,
producing and distributing folic
acid newsletters to healthcare
providers in Florida, and distribut-
ing folic acid "starter kits" to
healthcare providers for their
patients.
Rampersaud said the starter
kits include multivitamins with
folic acid along with other folic
acid-themed items. The effort is


being coordinated with the
statewide VitaGrant project
(http://www.doh.state.fl.us/fami-
ly/mch/vg/vg.html), a three-year
program spearheaded by the
Florida Department of Health and
March of Dimes Florida Chapter
to distribute 450,000 bottles of
free multivitamins containing
folic acid to underserved women
in Florida.
"Almost 50 percent of the preg-
nancies in the United States are
unplanned, so women need to
take folic acid every day," Ram-
persaud said. "Women can readi-
ly meet folic acid intake recom-
mendations by taking a
multivitamin with folic acid or eat-
ing folic acid-fortified grain foods.
Women also should eat foods
containing the natural form of
folic acid called food folate -
including orange juice, dark green
leafy vegetables, legumes such as
dried beans and peas, and straw-


berries."
Since 1998, the Food and Drug
Administration has required the
addition of folic acid to enriched
cereal grain products such as
breads, cereals, flours, pastas, rice
and other grain products. Accord-
ing to -the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention, fortifica-
tion has helped reduce the rates
of neural tube defects by approxi-
mately 26 percent.
This grant-funded project will
be overseen by Rampersaud and
Gail Kauwell, a professor in the
UF food science and human nutri-
tiod department and folate
researcher. Kauwell said about
3,000 babies in the United States,
including 97 babies in Florida, are
born each year with a neural tube
defect, resulting in substantial
emotional and financial impacts
on affected families. Although
many women are aware of folic
acid, less than half take a multivit-


amin containing folic acid every
day.
"Taking a multivitamin with
400 micrograms of folic acid
every day is such a simple thing
for women to do to increase the
chances that they'll have a
healthy baby someday," she said.
"Emerging research shows that
folic acid may help reduce the risk
of chronic diseases such as heart
disease and some cancers. So the
benefits of getting enough folic
acid every day extend beyond
those associated with neural tube
defect risk reduction," Kauwell
said.
The coalition works closely
with the National Council on Folic
Acid in Alexandria, Va. Other
coalition members include the
Florida Department of Health, the
March of Dimes Florida Chapter,
the Florida Birth Defects Registry
and the University of South Flori-
da Birth Defects Center.


Consumers are going


to receive $5.6 million


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist announced
that Florida consumers will receive
$5.6 million from a settlement with
Fast Payday Loans, formerly
known as Florida Auto Loans,
relating to allegations that the com-
pany forced borrowers to buy trav-
el club memberships in order to
obtain title loans.
The company agreed to pay up
that amount in restitution and debt
forgiveness, stemming from activi-
ties that claimed 37,000 victims in
Florida.
With 43 retail outlets across the
state, FloridaAuto Loans sold travel
club memberships offered by
Nation Safe Drivers, Inc., to more
than 37,000 consumers between
January 2001 and May 2004. In
many cases, Florida Auto Loans
forced customers to add $200 to
$900 travel club memberships to
the price of a title loan. Victims are
receiving a mailer from Direct Mail
Express, a company hired to con-
tact the 37,000 victims in this case.
"Companies must deal fairly
with our citizens, especially when
those citizens come to them in
need," said Crist. "For a company
to tack on unwanted travel club


memberships adds insult to injury.
Florida Auto Loans duped Florida
consumers, and now the company
must pay for it."
Florida Auto Loans has agreed
to pay up to $3.5 million in restitu-
tion and to forgive more than $2.1
million of outstanding consumer
debt. Consumers may be able to
receive up to 100 percent of their
money back, depending on the
number of consumers who seek
restitution from the settlement
fund. Under the settlement, the
company will not sell any products
or services in conjunction with
payday loans without permission
from state regulators.
The attorney general's investi-
gation into the company's con-
sumer lending practices was
opened in November 2003 at the
request of the state Office of Finan-
cial Regulation.
Floridians who obtained a title
loan from Florida Auto Loans
between January 2001 and May
2004 may be eligible for restitution
for sums paid for a Nation Safe Dri-
vers travel club membership. Con-
sumers with additional questions
should call the company toll-free at
(800) 922-8803.
