Dying veterans deserve peace


Free hospice and
palliative care from
Veterans Admin.

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
-
BEnd-of-life health care work-
ers and family caretakers may
not be aware of the important
differences that some veterans
may have had during their mili-
tary life. A veteran who had com-
bat experience or post-traumatic


stress disorder (PSTD) can have
a totally, different philosophy of
suffering and death than other
terminal patients.
Deborah Grassman is the di-
rector of hospice and palliative
care at Bay Pines VA Medical
Center near St. Petersburg. She
has lead the way in innovative
care of dying veterans, and edu-
cating their families about the
needs of former military person-
nel. According to Ms. Grassman,
many terminally ill veterans put
on the mask of a strong and si-
lent type soldier, seaman or air-


man. They were psychologically
conditioned to be stoic about
death and pain when they were
in the armed services, and it was
for a good reason back then. It
was part of survival.
However, back home and
decades later, a veteran may not
realize he does not have to be
what Deborah Grassman calls a
"grin and bear it" type any more.
These stoic patients have not tak-
en introspective time to seek out
the hospice and palliative care
that is offered for free from the
Veterans. Administration. Con-

GLADES COUNTY -- Sena-

Economy hurts small



local businesses


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

ORTONA Residents in
the Glades County community
of Ortona rely on the Country
Corner store. It is the only retail
business along this part of S.R.
78, and comes in handy when
folks do not want to drive all
the way to Moore Haven or La-
Belle for bread, soda or fuel.
The convenience store,
owned by Ronald and Ester
Steigerwald of LaBelle, was
a good business when they
bought it in 2006. Mr. Steiger-
wald has always been self-
employed. He had his own
landscaping and construction
company in the 1980's and 90's.
He, his wife and kids wanted to
work, and flourish together as
a family. The little Ortona store
seemed like the kind of place
that would allow them to earn
a living and develop a relation-
ship with residents in the rural
community on the north side of


the (aloosahatchee River.
It turned out to be a good
idea for awhile. Mr. Steigerwald
had grown up in Naples when
much of it was still considered
a small. town. He has done his
best to communicate with lo-:
cals to find out what they need.
It was his goal to hire local
people' and do business with
companies in the area.
Many patrons in Ortona are
pleased with the home cooked
food that Ester Steigerwald and
her daughter, Elena Kenning-
ton, prepare daily. They have
specials for breakfast, lunch
and dinner.' Local favorites are
fried turkey, chicken gizzards
and wings. Sometimes shrimp
and fried fish are available. A
custom built hamburger, can
be ordered any time. Coun-
try Corner has a dine-in area
or take-out, staple groceries,
household goods, and fuel.
Ronald Steigerwald had
made plans to expand and en-
large the dining area when they

Country Corner is the only store along S.R. 78 in Ortona,
Glades County


first opened up. The economy
was better then, but recently
his business has plummeted
approximately 50 percent.
He believes fewer winter resi-
dents and farm workers have
returned, some residents have
moved to find jobs, 'and the
amount of truck drivers has di-
minished. His upkeep is about
$2,500 a month, and does not
include the cost of products
and labor. He realizes other
small Businesses are hurting,
too.
"I really feel for any small
business out there," he said.
The store owners have hope
that the on-going road con-
struction will result in better,
wider roads which will make
it more convenient for motor-
ists when they stop to shop.
Also, his family wants to stay
in the area because they enjoy
the people. They wonder if the
economy will improve one of
these days.
"We pray a lot," Mr. Steiger-
wald said.
Small businesses have not
fared well in Glades County this
past year. The drought and the
slow economy closed down or
severely crippled marinas, bait
shops, convenience stores, re-
altors, land titles, restaurants,
apparel shops, laundromats
and appliance stores.
Local patrons hope that
more travelers and commut-
ers will stop, shop and fuel up
at Country Corner. They fear
.that one day they will not have
a community store where they
can buy milk or a freshly grilled
cheeseburger.

gress passed a law several years
ago that entitled veterans for this
care. The end-of-life service is
provided at hospitals and during
in-home care, too.
In order for family members
and health care workers to ease
the mental and physical suffering
of "grin and bear it" vets that are
dying, they must be prepared to
have an up front talk that is of the
sincerest psychological relief. Ac-
cording to hospice experts, cre-
ating a peaceful emotional envi-
ronment is what combat vets, or
vets with PSTD need the most.


This is because the last expe-
rience the vet may have had with
death was in the field of battle,
or at a field hospital where their
world was full of fear, horror and
helplessness. Some vets have
been fighting that last fight every
day of their lives since'they got
home. A great many World War
II veterans have already passed
on, but some in their late eight-
ies and in their nineties are still
with us. Numerous Korean War
and Vietnam War vets are facing

The Lord builds a house!


By Jackie Miller
I don't know about you, but
it upset me when an elementary
grade school teacher out in Cali-
fornia took her class on a "field
trip" to her own lesbian mar-
riage.
With such as this going on I'm
afraid the frog is in hot water and
he is almost cooked!
Psalm 127:1 reads, "Unless the
Lord builds the house, its builders
labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over
the city, the watchmen stand
guard in vain. .
What does the Lord build into
a marriage that the world does
not?
1. God builds on commitment.
If the Lord is not in the marriage,
it often deteriorates into a trial-
and-error experiment.
The world regards marriage.as
a human institution that can be
easily dissolved "if things don't


work out," when the romance
fades and the inevitable irritations
mount.
But when the Lord builds the
house, the couple both mean it
when they say, "'Til death do us
part."
When the romance fades, the
partners think, "I've got to find a
way to work this out, because I
made a vow to God to stay with
this person regardless, and I don't
want to be miserable all my life."
2. He builds on purity.
If the Lord builds the house,
Christians are careful not to give
Satan a foothold through drugs,
alcoholism, pornography, abuse,
unfaithfulness, and other sins of
impurity that are so devastating to
a marriage.
Tho godly couple protects their
relationship from these primary
enemies of the home by submit-
ting to God's standards.
3. He builds on a common


value system.
Just as the sun holds our so-
lar system together, so the Son
of God is the unifying force in a
marriage.
Attending church together;
praying and reading the Bible
together; developing Christian
friends who reinforce the rela-
tionship; having the same attitude
toward work, child rearing, mon-
ey matters, entertainment choices
- all serve to solidify the home.
When the Lord isn't building
the house, those areas can be-
come sources of "irreconcilable
differences."
4. He builds on the power of
the Holy Spirit.
"The fruit of the spirit is love,
joy, peace, patience, kindness,
goodness, faithfulness, gentle-
ness, and self-control" (Galatians
5:22-23).
Those unselfish, edifying quali-
ties don't come naturally, but they


are always deepening in the life of
the Spirit-filled couple and serve
to solidify the relationship.
There's a constant restlessness
in the heart of man, but the Holy
Spirit grants peace and content-
ment.
"In vain you rise early and stay
up late, toiling for food to eat for
He grants sleep to those He loves"
(Psalm 127:2).
A marriage counselor drew a
triangle on a chart in front, of an
engaged couple.
At the pinnacle he wrote,
"GOD." In the bottorh two cor-
ners he wrote, "HUSBAND" and
"WIFE."
Then, tracing the ascending
lines of the triangle, he spoke
words of eternal wisdom: "Notice
that the closer you get to God, the
closer you are to each other."
Marriage is between a Man
and a Woman!

Compassion, combat, and fatigues


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Someone was commenting
on the upcoming elections as a
group of us were gathered and
sharing thoughts.
The comment that got an
"Amen!" from everyone was that
"I'm just tired of it all."
This has been one of the lon-
gest, if not the longest political
campaigns in our history; and
now that it is coming to an end, I
wonder if there are people suffer-
ing from "Political Fatigue."
It isn't that the messages aren't
important, or that what is being
said should be ignored.
It isn't that people don't need
information, it just a case of repe-
tition wearing down a level of tol-
erance to a message that seems
to be coming across again and
again and again.
I get asked frequently to sup-
port some cause or need, or
donate to some charity or cam-
paign.
I look at the amount that is
spent for advertising it and won-
der if the funds might be better
used for direct support rather than
trying to get others to support it.
+ The number of catalogues that
are received in the mail, glossy pa:
per and multicolored, well-bound


and frequently updated, make me
wonder about the prices for the
items within them.
I've often thought that maybe I
can do better with someone that
mails out an occasional flyer in
black-and-white and who con-
tributes less to my "advertising
fatigue."
There is something about
"overkill" that turns me off.
I have learned instinctively to.
"tune out" or change channels
or throw away some mail that
comes marked "important" on
the envelope, or to hang up when
there is no voice on the other end
of the telephone but only a re-
cording.
A famous doctor referred to
this ability as "selective inatten-
tion." It frequently happens over
dinner tables, or at lectures or
when someone nags once too
often.
The difficulty is that every now
and again something important
comes through during one of
those moments or from a person
who has too often been tuned.
out, and we miss something.
Someone did a study of stu-
dents learning history.
There was some history in the
fourth grade curriculum and his-
tory wastaught again in the sev-
enth grade, but students would
say "We've hedrd this before"


SHERIFF SHERIFF

LEE CO. OKEECHOBEE CO.


and would not listen.
It was taught again in the
eleventh grade, but it was also
taught twice before and students
wouldn't be likely to pay atten-
tion.
If theywere to go on to college,
it might come up once more and
become a real teaching chore to
make it alive and interesting, es-
pecially when it was required and
repetitive at the same time.
The trouble is that we miss
something along the way when
"fatigue" sets in.
Whenever I begin to teach a
course, I try to let students know
why it is important to study that
particular subject.
Once that is clear, the place
in life of what we'were studying
gives a reason other than "be-,
cause it's required" and makes it
easier to see relevance, and not
shift into a mental neutral gear.
In all of the advertising and
overkill, there is a still small voice
that we hear every once and
awhile that says "Have faith" or
"Believe in God" or "God is the
answer." .
It says "God has a purpose in:
your life and even if "We've heard
it all before" it might be important
to stop, listen and give it our at-
tention
SEven when we think we know,
we miss something if we tune

out. Even if it seems boring or
even if we have our reasons or.
even if we're mad at God, or the
Church and all of those disagree-
able people who seem to attend
them, there is something to be
heard.
My answer for "message fa-
tigue" is to encourage people to
ask the questions that are on their
minds and find answers for them
that are satisfying to them in re-
turn... real. questions that deserve
real answers.
That's not saying "You've got to
believe..." or "because Isaid so..."
or by trying to wear someone out
by repetition until "religious fa-
tigue" sets in and they give up. It
is in answering, helping, sharing,
doing, being an example, being
as humanly honest as I can.
The first book of Kings talks
about a still, small voice.
God reveals Himself to Elijah
not in great winds or powerful
earthquakes or devastating fires,
but in a "still small voice' (1 Kings
19:10)."
In the midst of allof the "fa-
tigues" that can cause us:to ignore
or tune out, pray that we may still
hear the 'quiet; sriall voide that
really has something to say and
something we need to hear.

Why democracies fall


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I don't know about you, but I
have become somewhat cynical
of much of what I hear from many
of the politicians these days.
I have a hard time believing
that they will be able to do every-
thing they are promising they will
do, and it's hard trying to discern
the truths in who says what.
I find myself checking and
trying to verify any information I
receive, including the following
quotes.
Who penned the quotes be-
low?
If one were to put one's faith
in the reliability of the Internet,
the obvious answer would be Al-
exander Tytler.
Despite their frequent use, the
authors) of the quotes are un-
known. The earliest usage I found
was in the 1950's.
President Ronald Reagan used
the first quote in several speeches
in 1964 and 1965, attributing it to
"Fraser Tydler."
The fatal sequence was used


in a speech delivered by Eugene
Wilsori in 1950. It was years later
that they were put together.
My research leads me to sus-
pect that these quotes were prob-
ably coined by separate individu-
als in the first half of the twentieth
century.
The authors were probably
not famous people or respected
scholars, but rather private politi-
cal thinkers who got their words
in print, and whose words then
happened to strike a chord in oth-
ers.
We may not be able to say
for sure where the quotes came
from, but I believe the substance
of them stands especially in
what's happening around us in
these times.
Read and see what you think!
"A democracy cannot exist
as a permanent form of govern-
ment. It can only exist until the
voters discover that they can vote
themselves largesse (hand-outs)
from the public treasury. From
that moment on, the majority
always votes for the candidates


promising the most benefits from
the public treasury with the result
that a democracy always collaps-
es over loose fiscal policy."
It makes one think and won-
der what's happening in our lives
today, and to wonder where we
might be in the "fatal sequence":
"Great nations rise and fall.
People go from bondage to spiri-
tual faith, from spiritual faith to
great courage, from courage to
liberty, from liberty to abundance,
from abundance to complacency,
from complacency to apathy,
from apathy to dependence, and
from dependence back again into
bondage."
It reminds me of what hap-
pened to the Israelites in their rise
and fall from greatness to bond-
age, and then rise and fall again.
It worries me about what
might be happening in our coun-
try today.
If the above statement is natu-
ral law, then we are doomed.
My faith in God persuades
me that, despite periods of weak
leadership, it is still possible for us


I -Li

r"HUtl


to check the downswing before it
is too late.
Democracies fall when people
turn to themselves and away from
God.
It is then that personal gain
becomes the end all to be all and
morals collapse in preference to
personal desires.
It is then when leaders will say
anything to get elected and feel
they can get away with just about
anything.
The Scriptures tell us not to
conform to the pattern of this
world, but be transformed by the
renewing of our minds.
God promises, "If my people,
who are called by my name, will
humble themselves and pray and
seek my face and turn from their
wicked ways, then will I hear
from heaven and will forgive their
sin and will heal their land."
Some trust in chariots and
some in horses, but like the
psalmist, I trust in the name of the
LORD our God.

4 OPINION Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee Thursday, October 23, 2008


Speak Out
Speak Out has moved online, where it is quicker and
easier to share your ideas and converse with others. Go to
www.newszap.com, click on the community name and your
local or state Public Forum. There, you can create new
topics or comment on existing topics. You can also e-mail
comments to clewnews@newszap.com or call 863-983-9140,
but online comments get posted faster and not all phone calls
can be printed. What follows is a sampling of some of the
discussions currently taking place. Thanks for participating!
MHES SPEAKOUT: Let's look at the real picture... you can sit there
and complain or maybe even use your mouth for something other
than bashing everyone who actually tries to make our kids and com-
munity better. As a parent, maybe you should try and support our
teachers instead of beating them down especially in front of your kids.
Then again when the going gets tough and there is no one else to
blame for the failure of the youth. Let's just blame the people who give
most of their time each day to your kids -- teachers. I do agree that the
higher ups need much improvement, but let's focus on changing the
bigger picture instead of beating down the teachers who are actually
giving their all each and every minute of the day-night-weekend and
so on to our kids. I will agree that maybe all the teachers aren't the
best in the world, but they are what we have and are willing to give
there time to our kids. Unlike many of the surrounding counties, all of
our teachers are considered highly qualified by the state. And for the
letter that you may or most likely may not of received, it is giving you
options for your child's education. Now let's focus on the parents, if
you would do your homework you would find that the statistics show
that the real issue our youth's education is the parents. Both of my kids
attend Glades County schools and I feel fortunate as a parent and ac-
tually reinforce the teachings of their HIGHLY QUALIFIED TEACHERS
everyday when they get home. Let's face it, it would be really easy to
focus all the disappointments of our kid's education on the teachers,
but aren't you the parent. Here's a thought, maybe we could boost
our schools and teachers up to our children and they would become
more excited about going to school and learning. This is not some-
thing that can be conquered overnight, but instead of everyone always
bickering, we need to become one with the issues that really mat-
ter... OUR CHILDREN. It is extremely hard and disappointing when the
same people are on every committee and board that the schools offer.
I admit we need help! But what does this forum really accomplish
anything?... I say NO! There are many people that are willing to spend
their precious time typing to anyone who will read this, but step up
and help the few of us that are going crazy trying the make our chil-
dren's school days pleasantly memorable. I for one will try anything
that will help our youth thrive.

Voting for the World as it Should Be


By Michelle Obama
When I was a kid, my father
volunteered as a precinct captain
for the Democratic Party in our
neighborhood on the South Side
of Chicago. Some of my earliest
memories are of tagging along
as he went from door to door.
He registered people to vote. If
our neighbors needed absentee
ballots, he arranged it. He helped
them figure out how they'd get to
the voting booth on Election Day.
He did all this because he
believed in the value of each
person's voice in the political
process. But it took me years to
appreciate what he was teaching
me during those walks around
the neighborhood.
Like so many people, I took
my right to vote for granted. I
never had to march for it. I never
knew what it felt like to be turned
away while others were told that
their voice counted. So when I got
to vote for the first time, I did it
dutifully-but without any excite-
ment.
But now I feel differently. And
I hope every person in this coun-
try, young and old, can learn from
me. Because what my dad was
trying to show me was that voting
is not a dry responsibility. Partici-
pating in the political process is
challenging, fascinating and fun.
Many young Americans al-
ready know this. During the past
20 months, I've traveled to every
corner of the country with my


husband on his thrilling cam-
paign for the presidency. We have
been dazzled by the young people
we've met. Our country is full of
bright, curious, creative, and pas-
sionate young men and women,
who have an enormous capacity
for hard work and a deep belief
that a better world is possible.
I've seen this youthful energy
and optimism before-when I
met Barack, 20 years ago.
When we were first getting to
know one another, Barack took
me to a community meeting in a
neighborhood in Chicago where
people were working hard to get
back on their feet after local steel
plants shut down and jobs dried
up. There, Barack gave a talk
about his experiences as a com-
munity organizer. He spoke about
the gap between the world as it
is and the world as it should be.
And he said that ordinary people
can narrow that gap, if they work
together for change.
I fell in love with that idea. It
conveys a simple but powerful
truth, which is illustrated every
Election Day when people line
up to cast their ballots. When we
vote, we don't just choose a can-
didate. We choose to begin build-
ing the world as it should be.
For the young woman I met in
Colorado, it's a world where she
can get the education she dreams
of, even though her parents don't
have a lot of money. For the men I
met in Virginia, it's a world where

New date set for Sour
Orange Festival
The date for the Sour Orange

returning soldiers never have to
worry about getting the mental
health care they might need. For
the students I met in Iowa, it's a
world where invest in clean-en-
ergy that ends our dependence
on foreign oil and protects our
environment. And for the woman
I met in New York, it's a world
where gays and lesbians can fi-
nally live free from discrimina-
tion.
When we vote in this upcom-
ing election, we'll be casting our
ballots for that world.
I've heard people say, "My vote
doesn't matter," "My vote won't
count," or, "I'm just one person.
What possible difference can I
make?" But this year, all our votes
matter more than ever.
If you are satisfied with the
world as it is, your choice this fall
is easy. But if you believe, as I do,
that we can change the world to-
gether, please join me in voting
this election cycle.
There are three ways to vote
in Florida but the easiest is to
vote early between Oct. 20 and
Nov. 2, when the lines will shorter
and you don't need to remember
your specific polling location. In
fact, any registered voter in Palm
Beach County can vote early at
Belle Glade City Hall from 10am-
6pm Monday through Friday, and
10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and
Sunday. If you miss the early vote
period you can always cast your
ballot on Election Day, Nov. 4.

Extension Service
serves
up edible landscapes
You don't have to tear up your
yard to grow some food. Incorpo-
rate good-looking edible plants in
your landscape. Fruit trees pro-
duce shade and there are beauti-
ful and fruitful vines and bushes.


Voting is easy. It takes just a
minute, but it makes a huge dif-
ference. The Obama campaign
has set up a Website to help:
www.VoteforChange.com. There,
you can arrange for an absentee
ballot, find out if you're already
registered, and get information
on your polling place.
Share this information with
your friends, classmates, family
and neighbors. And encourage
everyone you know to go to the
polls early between Oct. 20 and
Nov. 2, or on Tuesday, Nov. 4.
This year, I'll be voting for my
daughters' future and my father's
memory. I'll vote for the thou-
sands of regular folks who fought
to get me the right to vote. And
I'll vote for young people across
America-and the generations
of young people that will follow,
who will someday look back at
this time with gratitude that we
summoned the courage to begin
building the world as it should
be.
To early vote in the Glades:
Bring your driver's license or
other current identification card
showing your picture and your
signature to Belle Glade City Hall,
110 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Blvd.
Early Voting is open from Mon-
day, Oct. 20 to Sunday, Nov. 2.
Hours: Monday thru Friday,
from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sat-
urday, Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 2

Letters to the Editor


Amendment 4
Dear Voters,
On November 4 you will be ask
for a yes or no vote on Amend-
ment 4. I urge you to VOTE NO.
While it might sound good for
their to be an exemption for land
placed in conservation this would
be devastating to our rural coun-
ties. This amendment would al-
low a significant amount of land
placed under conservation to be
exempt from ad valorum taxes.
I am very concerned the pro-
posed purchased of U.S. Sugar
land could eventually end up with
this exemption. There are those
who think this could not happen
I think we should ensure it does
not happen. We do not need this
language in our constitution if
it is needed then legislators need
to step up and accomplish it with
legislation. I also remind you the
amendment was crafted by envi-
ronmentalist recommendation to
the Florida Taxation and Budget
Reform Commission. That says
everything to me. Hope you agree
and vote NO ON FOUR. Thank
you for helping preserve our pre-
cious way of life in the Glades.

Hockey mom for
president?


Can you imagine a "hockey"
mom (or dad) as being an acting
President of the United States, or
in a worse case scenario, as be-
ing President of the United States?
This can easily come to pass.
Is someone with experience as
governor of the least populated
state in the union VP material?
Someone whose life experience
is living in an isolated state? A per-
son who even brags about such
things? A person whose proximity
to Siberia was suppose to give her
international political experience?
Is this suppose to be humorous?
Such an occurrence is not far
fetched. On 9-11, President Bush
was in the air on Air Force 1 for
a period of time for safety rea-
sons. Vice President Cheney act-
ed in command at the sheltered
command area under the White
House; Remember when Reagan
was shot and unconscious for a
period of time, thus leaving the
vice president in charge? Presi-
dent Kennedy was shot and killed
while in office, leaving Lyndon B.
Johnson as president. Many other
historical instances abound.
If such a situation were to oc-
cur, this would leave the most
inexperienced vice president
in U.S. history to be in charge,
should McCain become the next
president. And this is considered
by many to be a plus for McCain.


General News and


Plan now for
November Lake walk
It is time to organize your
schedule so that you can take
the time off during Thanksgiving
week to attend the Big "O" Hike
around Lake Okeechobee.
The Hike will begin in Pahokee
on Nov. 22, and end at Pahokee
on Nov. 30.
That's nine days of walking
from 9 to 14 miles a day to make
it all the way around the lake.
There is a little bit of a challenge
to this walk.
Hundreds of people have tried
over the years and (for some rea-
son) only about 20 to 30 percent
of the walkers manage to finish
the 9 days. So plan now and get
in shape for November.
For further information please
call Paul at 561-963-9906.

Obama's experience is suppose
to be lacking but compared to
him, she is a rank amateur.
Ms. Palin was on Saturday
Night Live to demonstrate her
sense of humor, not that she was
very funny. Both McCain and Pa-
lin must have a sense of humor
though if she is considered a bo-
nus to senator McCain as a run-
ning mate for president. And say-
ing that she is a maverick is about
the same thing as saying she is
different due to her inexperience
and she doesn't know any better.
Having Sarah Palin in charge
of the U.S.. during a moment of
crisis, or otherwise, gives me a
chill. How is having been mayor
of a small town to contribute as
acting president of the U.S.? Be-
sides, her personal experience as
a mother isn't that sterling either.
This scenario is like having a
person who knows how to fly a
cessna and having her pilot a 747.


It would be extremely irrespon-
sible to say the least.
My point is that someone hav-
ing little experience and being
basically naive of political abil-
ity should not be vice president
of my country, much less act-
ing president or president of my
country.
The tone of this letter is very
mild compared to Palin's state-
ments about Obama. Is it sup-
pose to be a plus when she
makes scalding remarks about
Senator Obama? I consider some
of the things she has said about
Obama to be outright slanderous.
Definitely not a good thing for a
vice presidential candidate in my
opinion, very immature.

Florida Crystals and Energy Independence


Looking at
Greenhouse Gas
Reduction measures

By Jerry Karnas
Florida Climate Project Director
Environmental Defense Fund

Green groups are. usually
known for singling out corpora-
tions that threaten the environ-
ment, but here in Florida dozens
of companies have been identified
as "Faces of Climate Change."
They are being praised for tak-
ing the initiative to solve environ-
mental problems.
In the process, these corpora-
tions are also finding that there
really is gold in green.
As the director of Environmen-
tal Defense Fund's "Faces of Cli-
mate Change" project, I identify
Florida businesses and entrepre-
neurs that are finding new ways
to meet the challenge of global
warming by implementing alter-
native eco-friendly ways to power
their operations and developing
clean energy solutions.
These companies range from
the Mosaic Company, which pro-
duces 150 megawatts of electric-
ity from waste heat enough to
power 50,000 homes to the Tal-
lahassee Antique Car Museum,
powered by solar, to Petro-Algae,
which is developing a technology
that can yield 14,000 gallons of
diesel from one acre of algae -
that's right, ready-to-use fuel from
a renewable microorganism.
Each of these Florida firms is
creating jobs 'and growing the


economy the old-fashioned way:
innovation.
They are finding solutions
to our toughest environmental
problems.
In the process, they're reduc-
ing our dependence on foreign
oil and helping to safeguard our
natural resources (not to mention
our tourism economy) from the.
ravages of climate change.
Today, we're shining the spot-
light on another face of climate
change Florida Crystals Corpo-
ration.
Florida Crystals is one of the
largest sugar companies in the
nation and manufacturer of the
world's first and only certified
carbonfree natural and organic
sugar products.
More than a decade ago, Flor-
ida Crystals built North America's
largest biomass power plant, lo-
cated in South Florida.
Today, the plant stands as one
of the most potent and important
symbols of energy independence
and greenhouse gas reduction in
Florida.
Florida Crystals uses bagasse,
sugar cane fiber, along with re-
cycled urban wood waste, as fuel
to power its operations. -
The company's power plant
also has the capacity to generate
enough eco-friendly electricity to
meet the daily needs of nearly
60,000 homes.
Florida Crystals hopes to con-
tinue its growth in the renewable
energy field.
In collaboration with the Uni-
versity of Florida, Florida Crys-
tals will soon break ground on
the state's first cellulosic ethanol
plant.


The facility will produce up to
two million gallons of advanced
ethanol and is expected to be-
come a world-class cellulosic
ethanol research facility.
Florida Crystals will be able to
produce food products, electricity,
and ethanol from the same crop
- all while reducing global warm-
ing pollution and the amount of.
waste sent to landfills.
As a leader in renewable en-
ergy production, Florida Crystals
recently joined our call on the
U.S. Congress to put a cap on
greenhouse gas emissions.
Why?
Because when Congress
caps global warming pollution,
companies that develop cleaner
power sources will have a market
to sell their innovations beyond
Florida's borders, and a leg up
in the massive global market for
low-carbon technologies.
"Cap and trade" is the leading
approach in Congress today for
greenhouse gas reduction.
Under "cap and trade" compa-
nies that reduce pollution below
the cap can sell their excess emis-
sions credits to others that have
failed to do so.


This approach will bring down
the cost of reducing pollution
across the board and thereby in-
crease the bottom line for com-
panies.
It also potentially means hun-
dreds of millions of dollars in new
revenue for Florida farmers and
foresters.
In fact, a University of Florida
study paid for by the Environmen-
tal Defense Fund recently found
that agriculture producers in Flor-
ida could earn $340 million a year
under a cap-and-trade system.
That's why it is imperative that
the next President works with the
Congress to approve a cap-and-
trade bill within the first 100 days
of the new administration.
It's a window of opportunity
for the incoming President to use
his goodwill and momentum to
enact a plan that will stimulate
the economy, reduce our oil de-
pendence, and finally deal with
climate change.
Others are sure to follow the
trail being blazed by Florida Crys-
tals south of Lake Okeechobee,
developing climate-friendly op-
erations and keeping Florida at
the forefront of reducing global

Child lead poisoning still a threat


By Brenda Barnes
Hendry County Dept. of Health
Lead poisoning is a serious
threat to a child's behavioral de-
velopment.
The effects of lead poisoning
can cause irreversible damage
and could be fatal.
Lead-based paints are the ma-
jor source of exposure. Houses
that were built before 1978 could
contain lead-based paints and
children could be exposed as the
paint starts to peel or when the
cracked paint creates dust par-


tides.
Other possible sources can
include imported toys, some pot-
tery, imported home remedies,
imported candy, make-up, jew-
elry, and mini-blinds.
Another source is "take-home
lead". This happens when lead-
dust is carried home on clothes
and shoes of people that have
hobbies or occupations that in-
volve lead.
A couple of hobbies that in-
volve lead are pottery and stained
glass creations. Two common


work activities that can cause
"take home lead" exposure are
home renovations and home re-
pairs.
Children under the age of six,
especially toddlers are at risk for
lead exposure because of the fre-
quent hand-to-mouth contact.
Early identification and treat-
ment of lead poisoning reduces
the risk of permanent damage.
Lead poisoning is preventable.
The key to prevention is mak-
ing sure that your child does not
come into contact with lead.


If you suspect that your child
may have been exposed to lead,
ask your health care provider if
they offer blood-lead testing.
Oct. 19-25, is recognized as
Childhood Lead Poisoning Pre-
yention Week.
If you would like more infor-
mation regarding lead poisoning
prevention, please contact the
Hendry County Health Depart-
ment at 863-674-4041.


Workshop open for S.R. 29 roadwork


Public is encouraged to attend
and provide comments about
proposed road expansion
The Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) is holding
a public information workshop
regarding proposed widening of
State Road 29 from State Road 82
to County Road 80A on Tuesday,
Oct. 28, at the LaBelle Civic Cen-
ter.
The workshop will be held in
an open house format.
People may stop at the civic
center (behind City Hall at 481
West Hickpochee Avenue) any-
time from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. to re-


view aerial maps and materials
and discuss the project one-on-
one with department staff.
FDOT encourages anyone in-
terested in the project residents,
commuters, business owners,
etc. to attend and offer com-
ments about proposed improve-
ments.
This workshop is part of a
Project Development and En-
vironment (PD &E) study that
evaluates engineering and envi-
ronmental considerations associ-
ated with widening the existing
two-lanes of State Road 29 in this
18-mile segment to four lanes.


During the study, public in-
volvement helps the department
determine a preferred concept for
roadway improvements.
This preferred roadway align-
ment will be presented at a for-
mal public hearing (tentatively
scheduled for spring 2009) near
the end of the study.
The PD &E study is a federally
required first step that produces
a conceptual design for road im-
provements.
It also identifies right-of-way
effects to business owners and
homeowners and preliminary
cost estimates for subsequent


phases of production.
At the end of the study, the
conceptual design is submitted to
the Federal Highway Administra-
tion for approval.
Future phases (preparation
of formal design plans, appraisal
and acquisition- of needed right-
of-way, and construction) are not
presently funded in the depart-
ment's five year work program
for this segment of S.R. 29.


Bank helps with mammography device


WEST PALM BEACH-Every
Three minutes a woman in the
U.S. is diagnosed with breast can-
cer.
Advanced technologies to de-
tect the disease early are critical to
survival. As a long-time supporter
of breast cancer health and early
detection, National City Bank has
provided a $50,000 gift to support
the purchase of a digital mam-
mography, machine for the new
$73 million regional hospital the
Health Care District of Palm Beach
County is currently constructing
in the Glades.
The donation was presented
to Glades Healthcare Foundation,
which is leading the fund raising
campaign for the new hospital.
The new facility will replace
Glades General Hospital, which
serves 40,000 residents in west-
ern Palm Beach County.
Digital mammography will
provide better detection and di-
agnostic .capabilities and allow
physicians to generate images in
seconds.
The technology provides the
added benefit of magnifying, ma-
nipulating and sharing images
electronically not' possible with
traditional film-based mammog-
raphy systems currently in use at
Glades General.
"National City's generous
gift will have a direct impact on
the health and well-being of our
patients by offering them more
comprehensive diagnoses, which
will ultimately save lives," said Dr.
Ron Wiewora, Glades General
Hospital interim chief executive
officer. Glades General Hospital
averages 265 positive breast can-
cer diagnoses per year in a com-
munity where more than one-
third of residents live below the
Federal Poverty Level.
"Our community relies on us
for care close to home," said Dr.
Wiewora.
"This gift will help us deliver
on our commitment to advance
healthcare in the Glades region."
National City is announcing
the gift in honor of October's Na-
tional Breast Cancer Awareness
Month.
"National City is committed
to and passionate about breast
cancer awareness, prevention
and support initiatives," said Jay
Shearouse, National City Bank
President of the Southeast Florida
Region.
"This opportunity is a direct
and meaningful way to help resi-
dents in the Glades better prevent
and detect breast cancer. We are

proud and honored to provide this
essential support to the Glades
Healthcare Foundation."
Glades Healthcare Foundation
is raising the remaining funds to
purchase the $350,000 machine.
Those interested in making a
donation toward the digital mam-
mography unit or the hospital
campaign can call 561-833-8999
or e-mail info@gladeshealthcare.

The campaign has reached 87
percent of its funding goal.

Vaccinations critical
in dealing with the
season

That dreaded Flu season is al-
ready upon us!
Unfortunately, there are many
reasons people give for not get-
ting their flu shot, including, "I
don't like needles; it's not effec-
tive; it has side effects; it causes
the flu, or I didn't think about it."
Each year approximately
36,000 people in the United States
die from Influenza and complica-
tions of the virus.
Don't let excuses prevent you
from getting your flu shot.
Hendry Regional Medical.Cen-
ter wants to help protect you,
your family, and your friends from
getting the flu.
The hospital is offering dis-
counted flu shots at its various.
facilities.

Extension Service: How does your garden grow?


By Dan Culbert
Extension Horticulture
Agent
Tangerine dieback
I have an early-bearing tan-
gerine hybrid about seven years
old. For the last two or three years
whole branches have died back,
with peeling bark and cankers.
I'm afraid I am losing the tree. Is
there anything I can do? Alan -
Branch dieback on citrus trees
is not uncommon when trees are
stressed by cycles of strong winds,
drought, and then flooding.
Excessive dieback can be an
indication of root damage from
stressful environments which of-
ten encourage insect or disease
problems.
Peeling bark and cankers can
be an indication of some citrus
diseases.
The term canker means dif-
ferent things to different people'
- some "cankers" turn out to be
harmless lichens that just grow
on the bark of citrus trees.


I certainly hope it is not the
dreaded citrus canker, which
looks like raised brown spots
surrounded by a yellow halo.
Because Citrus Canker is so eas-
ily transmitted, we do NOT want
folks bringing in diseased citrus
branches.
A better approach is to get us
a clear picture showing us what
you see is going on.
Or, come by our office to look
at one of our University of Florida
picture guides to citrus pests and
problems.
Identification of symptoms is
the first step in solving branch
dieback.
Be sure you are providing ad-
equate citrus special fertilizers
to insure that a young tree is not
stressed by nutritional deficien-
cies.
Watering in times of drought
will also help dooryard citrus
trees produce high quality fruit in
the Florida Yard.
Dead branches can be pruned
back into healthy green wood;
otherwise, pruning of citrus trees
is often not necessary.


Fallen Fruit
How much water do zucchi-
nis need? When is the best time
to start planting zucchinis from
seeds? My zucchini plants started
out beautiful, the fruit started,
then the leaves turned yellow
and all my plants died. The fruit
also turned yellow and never
matured. What did I do wrong?
- Denise
Zucchini and most other veg-
etable plants only need 1/2 inch of
water each week through most
of our gardening season (i.e. "the
winter").
With all of our recent rain, few
gardens have needed supplemen-
tal watering.
Zucchini and other "summer"
squash can be planted here from
September through October or
from January to March for a
spring crop.
It may be that your flowers
were not pollinated because not
enough bees were around or as
you suspect, they may fall off if
there was too much water.


Another possibility could be
blossom end rot a lack of solu-
ble calcium.
Unless there is proof of some
specific disease, the use-of a fun-
gicide is not recommended.
Bring in a sample of your fall-
en fruit to help find out of any of
these conditions exist.
Field grass in my lawn
This isn't about a garden, but
grass, how does one get rid of
what I call field grass which I be-
lieve is a form of a weed, but also
looks like a form of grass. How
would you grow good grass, can
you plant it in spots and it will
spread? Is there a way without
moving out all of what's there
and putting down all new sod?
It's impossible for me to do fi-
nancially that way. I have three
acres I want to get the weeds out
and have new grass growing on.
Help!- Miss K

The key to having a great look-
ing lawn is to follow three basic


rules for growing good grass:
Mow correctly (cut the lawn to a
4" tall height), fertilize correctly
(use a no-phosphorus, slow re-
lease granular fertilizer applied at
1# N/1000 square feet 2x year),
and water correctly (1/2 inch of
water per application; don't wa-
ter again till the grass starts to
wilt. Following these three rules
will prevent most weeds from
getting into your lawn.
If your lawn isn't healthy, make
sure that the grass gets 6+ hours
of sunlight, and be sure that your
pH isn't too high or low.
Violate these rules and you get
pests: insects, diseases and weeds
are all pests.
When you are not healthy,
take your medicine.
When your lawn is not healthy,
the medicines are called pesti-
cides.
To "prescribe" the right kind of
weed killer, I would need to know
the kind of grass you are growing,
(Bahiagrass and St. Augustine-
grass are the best ones for our


area) and the weed that is caus-
ing problems. Bring a sample of
the weed by our office or send us
a clear picture so it can be prop-
erly identified.
If less than half of the plants in
an area of your lawn are not the
kind of grass you want, it makes
sense to kill everything and start
over.
The area you are renovating
might be small or large, and can
be done in stages from small bite-
sized chunks to entire landscapes,
depending on how much money
you have to spend and how
quickly you want to see results.
Using a non-selective weed
killer with glyphosate (e.g. Round-
up) kills everything, waiting a few
weeks, then replant by sodding,
plugging, sprigging or seeding.
Some of .this renovation could
be done now if you want to use
annual ryegrass for the winter,
but permanent lawn replanting
should wait until spring.

Tips for reducing the
risk for breast
cancer

By Brenda Barnes
Dept. of Health
There's lots of information to
tell women the importance of get-
ting a yearly mammogram after
the age of 40.
This is very important infor-
mation, but is there anything a
healthy woman can do to reduce
her odds of getting breast cancer?
SOctober is Breast Cancer Aware-
ness Month so in honor of that
here are some tips that could help
reduce the risks of Breast Cancer:

Pay attention to your weight
Research suggests that obesity
may increase the risk of breast
cancer in women after meno-


pause by increasing the levels of
estrogen in their bodies. Make
slow changes in your eating hab-
its. Each week make a healthy
goal for yourself. For instance, tell
yourself "This week, I will eat a
salad at least two times".

SExercise Most people say
there's never enough time to ex-
ercise. Get creative. If you love
to dance, turn up the music and
dance while you are cleaning
the house. (You might get a few
laughs from the family at first, but
the results will be worth it). Walk
in place while you're talking on
the phone. You'd be surprised at
the number of steps you can take
while talking with a friend. While
you watch TV, grab a can of veg-
etables and lift it up and down to
give your arms a workout or get
up and walk around during the
commercials.


Cut back on red meats Eat
only two servings of red meat
per week. One serving is around
three ounces, or the size of a deck
of cards. Get creative with chick-
en, turkey and fish. When you are
browsing the computer, instead
of reading the latest gossip about
a movie star or politician, find a
new recipe!
Drink limited amounts of
alcohol Research has suggest-
ed that drinking one glass of red
wine each day can be healthy, but
the glass they refer to is about 4
ounces, not 16!

Have children High pro-
duction of estrogen can cause an
increased risk of breast cancer but
pregnancy decreases exposure to
estrogen.


Get a "base-line" mammo-
gram Get your first mammo-
gram between the ages of 35 and
40 so doctors can compare it to
future tests.
Then get a mammogram each
year.
Testing has drastically im-
proved and now they can detect
tiny changes in breast tissue.
Even if you regularly go to a
doctor and have yearly mammo-
grams, the best defense is to prac-
tice self exams.
If you're not sure that you're
doing it correctly, do it anyway.
You'll get used to the way
things feel, and you'll be the first
one to recognize when something
doesn't feel quite right.
Take care of yourselves ladies!
You are worth the extra effort!
Be healthy and be happy!

Track plans memorial


for Kim Allen


:-On. April 17, 2007, Hendry
County lost one of its favorite
sons when Kim Allen lost his val-
iant battle against colon cancer.
Kim was a wonderful father
of five, a good husband and ex-
cellent businessman, a friend for
many and most of all, a good
man.
Many will remember Kim as
Vice President/Branch Manager
of Clewiston National Bank from
1982-1993 and owner of Central
Mobile Homes in Clewiston from
1993 until his death.
He loved the outdoors, scuba,
camping, airboating and the Ever-
glades.
One Oct. 25, the New Hendry
County Speedway, located just
north of the intersection of Hwy
.80 and U.S. 27, will play host to
the United Dirt Late Model Chal-
lenge Series, which will hold the
first ever Kim Allen Memorial
Race.


This race will be to honor the
life of Kim Allen and to raise mon-
ey for the Hendry County ESE pro-
gram, where Kim Allen's widow,
Sandy, is currently employed.
Tickets for this event are cur-
rently being sold for $10 at Cen-
tral Mobile Homes in both LaBelle
and Clewiston.
Tickets will also be sold at the
gate, however, the price will be
$20 per person.
Donations for this great cause
are also being accepted and,
again, a portion of the ticket sales
will be donated to the Hendry
County ESE program.
To make a donation, please
contact Ken Kinney at 863-675-
8888 or 863-673-4325 for details.

Devon Land, Chief Deputy

Steve Whidden
2100 Scott Road
LaBelle, Florida 33935

Dear Mr. Whidden,


In March of 2005, as a courtesy to you I wrote a letter for you that was to
be used by you in applying for a Law Enforcement Officer. It has come to
my attention that you are using such a letter as a part of your political adver-
tisements strongly to inferring Hendry County voters that I am "support-
ing", "endorsing", or "recommending" you for Sheriff of Hendry County.
The use of such a letter without my written consent, constitutes a violation
of Florida's election laws, specifically Section 106.143 (3), Florida Statutes.
I have previously advised you to discontinue the use of this letter.

Such a letter, published in such a manner as it infers that I am supporting
you for office, commits fraud upon the voters of Hendry County since I have
previously advised you that I feel that you are not qualified to be Sheriff of
Hendry County. After leaving your employment with the Sheriff's Office, I
learned that you had filed a false employment application with the Sheriff's
Office as you failed to reveal on your application that you received some 10
traffic citations and that two traffic bench warrants for your arrest and one
civil court contempt order had been entered against you according to the
official records of Collier County and your City of Clewiston employment
application.

I have also learned through a memorandum contained in your file at the City
of Clewiston that you were removed from the DEA Task Force for being inef-
fective and failing to produce cases. This memorandum to you was written
by the Clewiston, Florida Chief of Police.

I demand that you remove my letter from any and all political advertisement
used by you in your campaign.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month


I..

all~


It is estimated that 13,430 Florida women will
be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.
When breast cancer is'detected early and treated promptly, suffering and ultimately the loss
of life can be significantly reduced. Mammography (an x-ray picture of the breast) is
the single most effective method to detect breast changes that may be cancer, long
before physical symptoms can be seen or felt. This is why, in recognition of Breast Cancer
Awareness Month, Glades General Hospital is offering Mammograms for a
special discounted rate of $60 throughout the month of October.


For further information or to schedule
your mammogram please call, 561-996-6571, ext. 286
Patient must pay cash, check or charge at the time of mammogram.

We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go wrong, and
citizens need to know about problems.)

Still, we give most of our attention to good news the kind you clip and

sult of losses caused by rainfall,
flash flooding, high winds, light-
ning and multiple tornadoes as-
sociated with Tropical Storm Fay.

lin, Gadsden, Gulf, Hardee, Jack-
son, Lafayette, Lake, Levy, Liberty,

Farm. Service Agency, provided


eligibility requirements are met,"
said Florida Farm Bureau Presi-
dent John L. Hoblick.
Assistance includes FSA emer-
gency loans and the Supplemen-
tal Revenue Assistance Program

Senator
Continued From Page 1
have you had?...l worked for four
years as an attorney in the law
firm of Steel Hector & Davis LLP
in Miami and West Palm Beach. I
left the law firm to work with then-
Insurance Commissioner (and
now U.S. Senator) Bill Nelson to
investigate insurance companies
that were accused of defrauding
our citizens. From there, I worked
as an Assistant Attorney General


in the economic crimes division,
where I led the fight against con-
sumer fraud. In 2000, I took a
year off to work as a White House
Fellow in the Clinton and Bush
Administrations, where I was
assigned to the Treasury Depart-
ment to investigate international
money laundering.
What puts a smile on your
face?...I love public service. Noth-
ing makes me happier than when
I am able to help a constituent in
need. My focus as a State Sena-
tor has been consumer protec-


tion, and I started a consumer
fraud project in my office that
has already returned more than
$4 million to people who have
called about being ripped-off. It
is a great feeling to give hope to
people who have nowhere else
to turn. I am proud to be the only
State legislator with such a con-
sumer fraud project in his office.
No matter how big or small your
consumer complaint, we try to
help everyone. You can reach my
consumer fraud project by calling
us toll-free at 877-435-7351.


What would you like to say
to residents of Glades County?...
Since I was first elected in 2002,
I have made Glades County a pri-
ority, and I am grateful to have
become a part of the community.
I want to assure the people of
Glades County that I am focused
on the effects of the potential
U.S. Sugar deal, and I am work-
ing across party lines to preserve
the future of this wonderful place.
I am grateful to have the support
of so many local elected officials,
and I am working with them to


bring an inland port to the area,
and to prevent job losses if the
U.S. Sugar deal goes through.
What would you like to say
to young people in Glades Coun-
ty?...As the youngest member of
the State Senate, I have reached
out to the young people of Glades
County to encourage them to
get involved in government and
politics. I lead a non-profit orga-
nization called "Teens Take Talla-
hassee," where we take students
from Moore Haven Junior-Senior
High School on an all-expense


paid trip to our capital during the
legislative session to see govern-
ment in action. With the help of
great teachers like Ms. Crystal
Drake, our Teens Take Tallahas-
see trip has been a big success.
The future leaders of Glades
County and the State of Florida
have been part of the program,
and I encourage all students to
apply through their social studies
teachers. Please look for our next
trip in April 2009!

Grow house raid: A near miss


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Glades County Sheriff Depu-
ties raided a suspected grow
house at 3475 County Road 731
last Wednesday with high hopes
they would seize a large amount
of marijuana.
They broke up the marijuana
grow house but found just a small
portion of the crops that have
been cultivated there over the
past year.
Detective Sgt. Steve Harris said
they will seek warrants against
the owner of the property, which


included a single wide trailer, a
small barn, and a shed.
About two pounds of marijua-
na was recovered at the location.
Sgt Harris noted that over $40,000
in electricity was Jikely stolen by
the grow house.
Sheriff Stuart Whiddon said
his department has been busy in
the past year battling marijuana
grow houses. This case in Glades
County could be related to sus-
pected grow houses in other ju-
risdictions.
Some of the grow house cases
have.resulted in federal prosecu-

grow house in Glades County.


tions, Whiddon noted.
He predicted these types of
facilities will continue in his rural
county. He noted outdoor grow-
ing of marijuana is a thing of the
past, "We brought a helicopter in
last year and didn't find anything,"
he explained.
Sgt. Harris said pot buckets for
over 120 plants were seized along
with potting soil. The operation
itself was shut down. It included
two strong air conditioning units,
and various items used in grow-
ing marijuana indoors.
Authorities said the grow
house probably had been in oper-
ation for over a year. They point-
ed out it was located off the road
and was not easily accessible.
The home owner, from Miami,
was not identified.

In response to a letter from Devon
Land, Chief Deputy of Ronnie Lee,
who wrote in part: C.-
I" have also learned through a
memorandum contained in your file I
at the City of Clewiston that you were
removed from the DEA Task Force, www.WeWantWhidden.com
for being ineffective and failing to produce cases."

Earlier Steve Whidden responded by stating:
" requested that I be removed from the Taskforce due to the fact that
there were literally no drug activity on the street and could not justify my
resources being assigned to the them any longer. I requested that
the DEA transfer me back to active duties in the City, as this was a
waste of resources at that time."

Quoting the minutes from the official transcript as written in the notes
in the Regular Commission Meetingon August 15th, 2005 by the City
Clerk:

" PRESENTATION- Police Department"
"Mayor Chamness read a letter written by Police Chief Don Gutshall to
the Clewiston Police Departments Narcotics Enforcement Unit, that
said in part, "I have served more than 15 years at a command level and
more than 23 years total in law enforcement..........I have never seen
or been associated with a group of people so dedicated to the com-
munity they serve... the Narcotics Enforcement Unit has managed to
virtually shut down and seal off the operations of local illegal drug oper-
ations in a span of eight months..."

The Commission commended the police officers, which included Matt
Duncan, Chad Pelham, Kelly Taylor, Max VanD'Huynslager, Don
Weathers, Steve Whidden, and Assistant Chief Kristine Peterson. The
audience joined the commission in applauding their outstanding
efforts."

I sincerely hope that this now sets.the record straight. As many citi-
zens have already contacted me and expressed their support, I would
appreciate your vote as your next Sheriff of Hendry County!

Respectfully,

U.S. Sugar refinery


breaks production records


Clewiston, FL October 21,
2008 U.S. Sugar Corporation an-
founced that the Clewiston Re-
finery has refined 13 million cwt.
for the first time in its history, far
Surpassing its previous total pro-
duction record of 11.34 cwt. set in
2005-06.
The refinery hit this important
milestone by refining its raw sug-
ar and more than 48,000 tons of
Mexican sugar.
| In addition, United Sugars re-
cently ranked the Clewiston Re-
finery as the highest quality facil-
ity in its organization.
The sugarcane haryesting.and
processing season started on Oc-
tober 3 and is expected to run un-
til late April.
The company plans to harvest
170,396 acres, yielding an esti-
mated 6.3 million tons of sugar-
cane and producing 13.8 million


cwt. of raw sugar.
The Clewiston Refinery is pro-
jected to produce 13.1 million
cwt. refined sugar.
President and CEO Robert H.
Buker praised employees, "After
an excellent repair season, we
have had a good, smooth start
up. in the fields, factory and rail-
road."
Three years ago, the Refinery's
capacity was expanded to enable
the facility to refine all of the com-
pany's raw sugar production.
Current capacity is 45,000 cwt.
or 2250 tons per day.
The expansion along with the
enhanced high quality sugar pro-
duced by the modernization and
consolidation of the Clewiston
Mill and a stable team of refinery
Employees are credited with the
record production.

be saved with these high-tech in-
terventions.
The largest reduction in death
-- 40%-- will result from the adop-
tion of healthier habits.
"Human attitude has a tre-
mendous influence on health,"
says Rakel.
"If you are happy, you are
more likely to go out jogging or
adopt positive lifestyle behaviors
because you have hope. You see
what's good in the world instead
of what's bad.
"If. I'm seeing what's bad in
the world, I won't have the hope
that encourages positive lifestyle
choices."
Studies of laboratory rats with
a gene that increases the risk of
diabetes further build the case for
epigenetics.
When the pregnant mothers
of genetically identical rats who
had this gene ate foods that in-
fluence gene expression (garlic,
beets, onions), their offspring did
not develop diabetes.
*But when mothers were fed
a diet that did not include these-
foods, the offspring became
obese and developed diabetes.
What the mothers ate influ-
enced the expression of genes in
their offspring.
This and evolving research are
teaching us that epigenetic influ-
ences leave an imprint on our ge-
netic code that is passed down to
future generations.
"If I choose to eat fruits and


vegetables versus high-fat foods,
if I choose to fill my heart with
compassion versus hate and hos-
tility, this can leave a mark in my
code that can be passed on," says
Rakel.
"The question is not who you
are now, but who do you want to
become?
"And who do you want your
kids and your kid's kids to be-
come? Choices now may influ-
ence future generations."
Rakel says epigenetics also
advocates less dependence on
drugs and greater reliance on re-
cruiting self-healing mechanisms.
"If I have 10 minutes with


a patient, I could write them a
prescription to lower their cho-
lesterol. But I'm just treating one
thing," he says.
"If I encourage them to ex-
ercise and eat better, I'm doing
much more than lowering their
cholesterol. I'm reducing their risk
of cancer, Alzheimer's disease,
diabetes...the list goes on. Epi-
genetics impacts the whole body,
but drugs are geared toward one
specific disease."
While Rakel admits it is easier
said than done to take an optimis-
tic attitude and change one's be-
havior, sometimes little things can
lead you down the path to better


health.
"It could be a matter of forgiv-
ing that person who has made
you angry for 30 years," he says.
"If you can do that, maybe your
shoulders feel lighter or that ache
in your gut doesn't feel as bad.
"Maybe you stop getting head-
aches or neck pain. That's an
epigenetic example of how that
choice, forgiveness, results in tre-
mendous change in your overall
outlook, well-being and physical
health.

More Dodge car models now eligible


INI Florida Effective Oct.
1, Florida Farm Bureau members
can receive $500 cash savings on
the retail purchase or lease of new
2008 and 2009 Dodge Avenger,
Charger and Caliber automobiles.
Those models have been added to

includes Ram 1500/2500/3500,
Dakota, Durango, Neon, Stratus
Coupe/Sedan, Caravan/Caravan
CV, Grand Caravan/Grand Cara-
van CV, Magnum and Nitro. SRT
models, Viper, Challenger and the
Sprinter van are not included in
the incentive program.
"This is a significant expan-


sion of members' Dodge vehicle
choices," said Florida Farm Bu-
reau President John L. Hoblick.
"It expands a popular program
that has saved our members hun-
dreds of thousands of dollars."
Individuals who have been
members of the Florida Farm
Bureau for at least 30 days can
obtain a bonus certificate from
their county Farm Bureau enti-
tling them to the $500 rebate. The
rebate, which can be combined
with any national consumer
incentives, is available only to
Florida Farm Bureau members in
Florida.


The incentive cannot be com-
bined with the Dodge ON THE
JOB Commercial Incentive Pro-
gram, Chrysler Employee Advan-
tage, Dealership Employee Pur-
chase, Friends Program, College
Graduate Program or certain oth-
er printed certificate programs.
The Dodge $500 Farm Bu-
reau Bonus program is part of
a broad menu of member ben-
efits that includes banking and
insurance services, medical dis-
counts, discounts on travel, lodg-
ing and theme park admissions,

ture magazine, discounts from


Grainger and the Farm Bureau

eration's Web site, http://Florida-
FarmBureau.org. Farm Bureau's

prove the quality of rural life. Any-
one can become a member.
The Florida Farm Bureau Fed-
eration is the state's largest gener-
al-interest agricultural association
with about 140,000 member-fam-
ilies statewide. Headquartered in
Gainesville, the Federation is an
independent, nonprofit agricul-
tural organization.


Credit Unions play positive role in economy


INI Florida Credit unions,
not-for-profit financial institutions
owned by their members, may be
among the safest financial institu-
tions in the nation, despite our na-
tion's current economic struggles.
And as a result, they are gaining
recognition among consumers as
well as on Capitol Hill for not only
having avoided the problems that
created today's financial mess,
but for being a huge part of the
solution.
"In the wake of the Lehmann
Bros. and Merrill Lynch debacles,
many consumers are becom-
ing more and more concerned
about the financial soundness of
their financial institutions," said
Guy M. Hood, President/CEO of
the Florida Credit Union League
(FCUL). "Where some financial
institutions are reeling from the
economy, credit unions are not.


There has also been some hype
about money in credit unions
being unsafe, when, in fact, it is
just as safe being insured with the
National Credit Union Association
(NCUA) as money with FDIC."
Credit union deposits, called
shares, are insured by the Nation-
al Credit Union Administration
(NCUA), a federal agency offer-
ing deposit account coverage just
like the FDIC, to at least $100,000
per insured account. Although
there have been many news
that have focused exclusively on
FDIC insurance at banks the fed-
eral insurance provided by NCUA
for credit unions has often been
overlooked.
Recent segments on CNN and
other news shows as well as an
article in Politico magazine on
Capitol Hill recognized credit
unions as strong and secure insti-


tutions that avoided the bad lend-
ing practices that caused today's
financial crisis.
According to the Credit Union
National Association's (CUNA)
Senior Vice President Research
Chief Economist, Bill Hampel:
Credit unions are in very
good shape although it's not
pleasant with low earnings.
This year is the lowest earn-
ings seen in the history of. credit
unions due to rising loan losses
but credit unions are still very
well capitalized.
With the weakening econo-
my, consumers are spending less
but saving more, therefore loans
have slowed down but saving
deposits have increased at credit
unions.
First mortgage loan charge-
off rates are up but low in com-
parison to other financial institu-


tions. Last year the rate was at .02
percent, this year, .06 percent.
Credit unions are still lending
while others are not however, as
always, they are prudent lenders.
"When it comes to personal
finances, credit unions are here
to serve, to counsel, and to pro-
tect their membership compas-
sionately," said Hood. "Florida's
4.5 million credit union members
need to know that as long as their
individual accounts remain with-
in coverage limits, their funds are
safe."
The NCUA website, at www.
ncua.gov, has additional tools to
help consumers determine the
coverage on their accounts as
well as brochures and bulletins
that detail coverage for regular
savings and retirement accounts
and more.

reau's Young Farmer and Rancher

end turkey hunt with Commis-
sioner of Agriculture Charles H.
Bronson.

Differing views on definition of marriage


The recent articles in the
Democrat by Pastor Brian Ham-
rick reflect his views on a variety
of sensitive topics and no one
should question his right to the
free expression of -how he sees
these topics. However, in his
most recent article appearing in
the Sept. 25, Democrat, Pastor
Hamrick cited an eminent British
anthropologist and an eminent
Russian-American sociologist to
bolster his argument in support
of a proposed Florida Constitu-


tional Amendment defining the
meaning of marriage, drawing
the conclusion that opposing
this amendment is a "recipe for
disaster" based on science as
well as his interpretation of theol-
ogy. However, as someone with a
master's degree in sociology and
anthropology (as well as a doc-
torate in psychology), I feel obli-
gated to mention the conclusions
of the sociologist and anthropolo-
gist cited by Pastor Hamrick are
nearly a century old and do not


reflect current thinking in these
fields, where research has pro-
gressed remarkably over these
many years.
The American Anthropologi-
cal Association's website states
the following: "The results of
more than a century of anthropo-
logical research on households,
kinship relationships, and fami-
lies, across cultures and through
time, provide no support what-
soever for the view that either
civilization or viable social orders


depend upon marriage as an ex-
clusively heterosexual institution.
Rather, anthropological research
supports the conclusion that a
vast array of family types, includ-
ing families built upon same-sex
partnerships, can contribute to
stable and humane societies." In
2004, this organization resolved
to strongly oppose any constitu-
tional amendment limiting mar-
riage to heterosexual couples.
Likewise, the American Sociologi-
cal Association's website features


a similar resolution made by that
organization in 2004 that opposes
defining marriage in any narrow-
ly proscribed way, stating such a
definition would be "based on
prejudice rather than empirical
research." Last, the American Psy-
chological Association (of which I
am a member) has a similar 2004
resolution on its website, stating
"psychological research on rela-
tionships and couples provides
no evidence to justify discrimina-
tion against same-sex couples."


Although religious interpretations
may vary considerably, to imply
that scientific data, such as from
the fields of sociology and anthro-
pology, would support approval
of this amendment is simply un-
true.

search Professor of Psychol-
ogy, University of Florida.


McCollum warns Floridians about mortgage fraud


Tips to avoid mortgage fraud-
related identity theft and fraud
from the U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Development
include:
*Be wary of any attempt to
persuade you to make a false
statement on your loan applica-
tion, such as overstating your in-
come or the source of your down
payment, and failing to disclose
the nature and amount of your
debts or how long you have been
employed. Lying on a mortgage


INI Florida In recognition
of National Protect Your Identity
Week, October 19-25, Attorney
General Bill McCollum today is-
sued a consumer advisory warn-
ing Floridians about mortgage
fraud-related identity theft.
The crime can occur when
"straw borrowers" are recruited
to perpetuate a mortgage scam
on a lending institution. The per-
son who allows their good credit
to be used as a straw borrower
typically ends up with ruined
credit, significant debt and poten-
tial criminal charges. The crime
can also be perpetuated through
criminal identity theft, which oc-
curs when thieves steal a person's.
identity or personal information,
unbeknownst to the victim, and
use that information to secure
mortgages or other home loans.
"Identity theft.can be one of
the more personally damaging
results of mortgage fraud," said
Attorney General McCollum.
"This financial destruction can
ruin a person's name, credit, and
other personal financial aspects,
and may even result in litigation
against a straw buyer engaged in
a mortgage fraud scheme."
Just last month, Attorney Gen-
eral McCollum sued 10 compa-
nies and 15 individuals for a mas-
_ sive $37 million mortgage fraud
scheme utilizing straw borrowers
in Central Florida. In that case, the
ringleaders allegedly defrauded
banks by recruiting straw buyers
with good credit to create false
mortgage loan applications. The
scammers also allegedly created
fraudulent supporting documen-
tation for the applications includ-
ing bogus employment informa-
tion for the straw buyers. In many
cases, the defendants failed to
make the required mortgage pay-
ments on behalf of straw buyers
and allowed at least 50 properties
to fall into foreclosure.
Six alleged straw borrowers
are named as defendants in the
Attorney General's lawsuit.

application is fraud and may re-
sult in criminal penalties.
*Be wary of any attempt to
persuade you to borrow more
money than you know you can
afford to repay.
*Never sign a blank docu-
ment or a document containing
blanks. If information is inserted
by someone else after you have
signed, you may still be bound to
the terms of the contract.
*Read everything carefully and
ask questions. Do not sign any-


thing that you don't understand.
*Be honest about your inten-
tion to occupy the house. Stating
that you plan to live there when
in fact you do not violates federal
law and is a crime.

may be victims of identity theft or
fraud may contact the Attorney

A UNIQUE COMMUNITY SERVICE NEWSPAPER


to bring good
^- Oubt mission is

journalism to
the communities
S IN we serve. We
try to provide
citizens with the
knowledge they need to participate
fully in the community. This includes
covering meaningful issues and
trends, publicizing community
activities and showing people how
they can get involved.


OUR STANDARDS

L As a community
institution, we strive
I to use good
journalism to bring
out the best in the
community and its
people. As a
business, we are
committed to
achieving success on the high road,
maintaining high ethical standards
and seeking win-win relationships.
As an employer, we encourage our
people to develop their full potential
and become all they can be.


OUR GOAL



^ ]. ,r
i i'"a''W 'W nt to "e

Sof our
communities
with the best
newspaper the market
can support. Each newspaper
strives to be among the best of its
size and type in the nation.






OPEN DOOR POLICY

With matyv
news ,-pap.~'r,
it's hard to i
get
something
published in the '
paper. We essentially follow a policy :
of "if you get it to us and it's
legitimate community news, we'll get.
it in". In fact, involving the community
in routine news-gathering allows our
editors to spend more time covering
critical local issues and facilitating
the community's discussion of those
issues.


OPINIONS PAGE

Oir Qopli in pages belong to the
:bbnmmu ty. Everybody's views are
Swelcbried. The editors do not push
their own views on the community;
instead they encourage the
community's discussion of issues and
seek out a broad range of opinions. To
return to the values of the American Revolution,
the newspapers offer a call-in column in which
citizens can express their opinions anonymously
(edited to keep the discussions as open as
possible, within the bounds of fair play). There
are also letters to the editor and guest
commentaries from experts on various topics.

Castaways on the wild shores of Florida


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
A blaze of fiery red fingers
probed the evening sky, until the
passage of night slowly descend-
ed and vanquished the sun's last
appendages of light.
Now only the glowing lanterns
shielded the Spanish galleon from
the darkness, as the sea's tempest
strengthened, threatening the
ships voyage through the dreaded
Florida Straits.
The navigator and two sailors
clung fearfully to the massive til-
ler as huge, grey bearded waves
hissed and rolled upon the lum-
bering ship, sending tons of
green, white, frothy water stream-
ing across the ship's deck.
Deck hatches securely bat-
tened down, resisted the raging
tropical storm's deluge of water,
but failed to stop the foreboding
storm that intensified within the
ship's hull.
The ship's interior was gripped
in the pervasive smell of fear that
swept over the men, women and
children in cold waves of pungent
perspiration as they huddled like
lost souls in the darkness. .
Suddenly a plunge of the gal-
leon into a wave sent a shutter


through the ship.
A loud moan erupted from the
outer hull as the ship's timbers
cracked and splintered on the hid-
den reef that held the rigid ship in
its jagged jaws.
Cold, merciless, waves struck
and battered the impaled ship,
until it tore apart amidst the wails
and shrieks of the living and dying
that were swept into the pitiless
sea.
It was morning and those who
had survived the horrible night
now looked up stupefied, as tall,
brown Calusa warriors, armed
with clubs, walked menacingly
toward them along the storm lit-
tered beach.
This story is fiction but reflects
the hardships and, dangers that
the early sailors and passengers
endured along the coast of Flor-
ida.
The perils of the voyage were
heightened because there was no
refuge for the castaways. In the
early 1500s, death or a life of en-
slavement was the norm for cast-
aways.
It is time to take "A Walk in
The Past" 'and listen to the tall
tales of Fontanado and other
shipwrecked castaways, who en-
countered the Calusa on the wild


shores of Florida.
Escalante Fontaneda was 13
years old when taken captive by
the Calusa.
He was a slave among the
Calusa for 17 years until rescued
in 1566, by a Spanish expedition
sent by Don Pedro Menendez in
search of his lost son and a water
route across south Florida.
Fontaneda returned to Spain
after his rescue and later wrote
his memoirs in 1575.
In his memoirs, Escalante Fon-
taneda describes the beginning of
his voyage: "On board this ship
were the two sons of Alonso De
Mesa and their uncle.
."They were all rich, and I the
poorest among them, yet. I had
twenty-five pesos of fine gold. My
father (who was a commander)
and my mother had both served
his Majesty in Pdru, and subse-
quently in Carthagena, where
they established a colony.
"I, as well as one of my broth-
ers, was born there. They were
sending us to Spain to be educat-
ed, when we were shipwrecked
on the Florida coast; as well as
the .fleet from New Spain, com-
manded by the son of Don Pedro
Menendez (Adelantado of fFlori-
da)."


He and others, including his
brother, survived the shipwreck,
but were taken captive by the
Calusa Indians.
His older brother and the other
survivors of that fateful night nev-
er returned to Spain.
Their bones and the bones of
many other, shipwreck survivors
are scattered across Florida, but
remain to this day silent witness-
es to the brutality they received at
the hands of the Calusa and other
Indian nations in South Florida.
.The brutality and executions
that European castaways received
at the hands of some Indian na-
tions is likened to a two-edge
sword.
Florida Indian nations were
subjected to cruelty by the roving
Spanish expeditions that passed
through their territories in search
of Gold.
Spanish journals record in-
stances where trained attack dogs
were used to kill Indian captives,
simply because they failed to pro-
vide information.
Spanish slave ships plied the
Florida coast capturing Indians
and separating families forever.
The seeds of hatred and bit-
terness were planted deep in the
hearts of wronged Indian nations


that later bore fruit, when ship-
wrecked men, women and chil-
dren were cast on their shores.
Many of the shipwreck survi-
vors were killed immediately by
the Indians, when discovered on
the beaches.
Others became slaves, endur-
ing the harsh physical hardships,
knowing their only hope was res-
cue.
This desperate hope was re-
corded on a clam shell found in
Glades County by an archeologist
in the early 1900s. A rough map
is inscribed on the shell indicating
where the Spanish captive was
living.
The Indians used shells as
trade items, and no doubt the
captive was hoping the shell map
would one day bring Spanish res-
cuers.
Enslavement was an .ironic
twist of fate for wealthy passen-
gers, who weeks before had lived
the lives of gentlemen and noble
ladies with Indian slaves to do
their every biding.
Now they were most miser-
able and probably longed for just
the simple comforts that they had
provided to their slaves.
Even more ironic was the fate
awaiting black runaways, flee-


ing slavery in Cuba or the black
slaves that were journeying with
their owners, only to find that
they must succumb to slavery
again on the shores of Florida.
The year 1492 was the begin-
ning of "Life and Death" struggles
between multiple cultures that
clashed and fought until the 18th
century in the Americas.
It is sad but true that history
repeats itself and that we fail to
learn from the past.
The "Life and Times" of the
Calusa will continue in Tall Tales
of Fontaneda's memoirs in the
next edition of "A Walk in The
Past."
I hope you enjoyed this story.

seum if you have questions, arti-

Tale" that you would like to share.

Smoke stinks in a slow real estate market


76% of Potential,
Home Buyers Say
Cigarette Smoke
Odor Would Be a
Deal Breaker

Tallahassee, FL As 'For Sale"
signs dot yards throughout Flori-
da, plummeting sales and home
prices and soaring foreclosures
signal that the housing crisis con-
tinues tb deepen.
When the real estate market is
competitive, a home with a pun-
gent odor such as cigarettes can
make or break the deal.
According to a 2008 Home Fea-


tures Survey done by Zip Realty,
76% of respondents say that bad
odor, such as cigarette smoke,
would sway their decision against
purchasing a home.
Tobacco Free Florida wants
to help Floridians maintain their
edge in a competitive market and
live healthier lives.
The stale, lingering odor of
cigarette smoke seeps into and
sticks bn furniture, carpets, walls,
curtains and just about every sur-
face it comes in contact with.
Household cleaners alone
won't get the job done, therefore
professionals need to be hired to
deep clean the stubborn odors,
and remove stains. Smokers incur
extra costs when selling a house


that non-smokers do not.
Homes may require new paint
and professional carpet and drap-
ery cleaning.
For an average sized home
this could run a homeowner ap-
proximately $3,000 in additional
expenses.
Think smoking outside is the
answer?
. "It is not," says Kim Berfield,
Deputy Secretary of the Florida
Department of Health.
"Smoking outside helps re-
duce tobacco odor, but does not
eliminate it.
"Clothes absorb the smell,
dragging it back into the home
and undoubtedly finding its way
to closets and drawers. Quitting


smoking is the only way to com-
pletely rid a home of the smell."
In addition to the effect that
cigarette .smoke can have to a
home's interior, smoking inside
puts others at risk of the dangers
of second-hand smoke.
There is no safe level of expo-
sure to secondhand smoke and
there is no ventilation (i.e., an
open window) that can eliminate
Sthe exposure.
"Secondhand smoke is a sig-
nificant health, issue for Florid-
ians," says Berfield.
"Approximately 11 million
youth'age 12-18 live in a house-
hold with at least one smoker,
and over 6 million are exposed to
second hand smoke daily.


"Smoking inside the home
puts others at an increased risk
for respiratory illness, lung can-
cer, and cardiovascular disease."
Tobacco Free Florida is stress-
ing to Floridians that the decision
to quit smoking is the only way to
ensure a home will not be over-
looked due to an odor and will
play a major part in turning "For
Sale" signs on front lawns into
"Sold" signs.
Free cessation assistance is
provided by calling the Quitline
at 1-877-U-CAN-NOW (1-877-822-
6669).
Bilingual counselors who are
specially trained to help tobacco
users quit are available twenty-
four hours a day,-seven days a


week.
Additional cessation resources
such as Qwitter, an online social
networking platform for smok-
ers to track their quitting progress
with the support of friends and
family, are available at www.to-
baccofreeflorida.com.
For local information regard-
ing free cessation assistance,
please call Valarie James or Jen-
ni Dyess at the Hendry County

Autumn Apples: The Very Last Fruits of the Season


- By Carrie Madren
Polishing a Pink Lady on my
sleeve, I take a bite into my first
fresh-picked apple of autumn.
The crisp crunch echoes
sounds of raspy, fallen leaves
underfoot. Fall is apple-picking
time.
It's a tradition I've adopted for
the past handful of years, harvest-
ing my own apples by the bagful
at a local apple orchard.
I delight in twisting firm fruits
off woody stems, taking my time
as I search for the best fruits.
My autumn apple pilgrimage
marks a milestone each year, like
the first glimpse of green leaves in
spring, or catching the first firefly
of summer.
In harvesting these last fruits of


the season Fuji, Granny Smith,
Rome Beauty or Braeburn -- we
can savor both the sweet and the
tart of the year's harvest as we be-
gin to reflect back on the year.
All summer I had delighted in
plucking blueberries, snapping
off snow peas and picking sun-
warmed tomatoes.
My first green pepper of the
year tempted a chipmunk to nib-
ble it to pieces.
My once-lush dill dried to a'
crisp during an August dry spell.
A yellow cherry tomato plant
surprised me in my flower bed,
yielding sunburst-colored spheres'
of juicy fruit to pick as I arrived
home.
Now, out in the orchard, I
wander through summer's boun-
ty one last time for the year.


Apples mottled in reds, yel-
lows and greens weigh down
boughs of orchard trees, ripe and
ready for harvest.
Make the most of autumn's
golden afternoon sun and crisp
air full of cricket symphonies;
frosty mornings will soon have us
reaching for warmer jackets.
Choose a day that you.can lin-
ger among rows of trees, breathe
fresh air deeply, smell the autumn
foliage and sample one of your
selections.
As you snack, adopt summer's
slower pace one last time.
Notice the birds skittering
through the orchard trees, and fly-
ing south. Stop and turn skyward
if a V of geese crosses overhead.
- In this last foray out into farm
and field -- not unlike the lazy


hikes and humid hunts for berries
that made up summer days -- take
a mental picture to hold onto as
cooler air settles across the East
Coast.
Such traditions help us keep
track of a year's time, a comfort-
able annual routine that lets us
know where and when we are. .
It's at about this time, too,
that the farmers' markets and the
roadside stands of summer wind
down for the year. Pick your own
apples -- or discover a late-season
roadside stand -- and you'll sup-
port local growers,' extending
your 'Buy Local' momentum far-
ther into cooler weather.
At some orchards, you can
pick up mums, maize, gourds
and pumpkins with your apples.
Pluck your own apples from


local orchards, and you'll keep
growers in business.
With development and sprawl
hungering to claim more fields
and forests, farms need our help
to stay growing year after year.
Mega-grocery stores beckon
us with a dream-world of pro-
duce, including apples trucked in
from Washington and elsewhere
beyond the Mid-Atlantic.
Our local farms need otir sup-
port.
Plus, there's virtue in baking
pies, drizzling caramel over fresh-
cut wedges or stewing home-
made applesauce -- with apples
nurtured at a local orchard.
Visit different orchards from
year to year, visiting at various
times during the fall.
Sample new varieties and find


your favorites.
The more tart, the better for
baking. The sweeter, the better
for munching.
Pick a variety of apples to keep
heaped in a bowl at home, too.
.It's the apple -- the most humble
of fruits -- that suggests home-
coming, simpler times.
Bringing this last harvest of the
year indoors will help set the stage
for upcoming family gatherings.
Cozy into a mug of warm ci-
der, or pack an apple on a journey
away from home.
Revel in the apples of autumn
and you'll weave summer's last
fruit into the fabric of fall.


Insurance and disaster assistance may still be available


Fay Victims with
Insurance May Be
Eligible Assistance

ORLANDO October 21,2008
- As the Nov. 10 deadline to apply
for disaster assistance approach-
es, the Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency (FEMA), and the
State Emergency Response Team
(SERT) are reminding those indi-
viduals who were initially denied
assistance because they have ho-
meowners' or flood insurance
that they may still be eligible for
assistance.
If insured applicants applied
for assistance from FEMA, they
should have received a letter stat-
ing that they were not eligible for


certain types of state and federal
disaster assistance until they were.
able to provide evidence of the
status of their insurance claim.
This is to prevent possible du-
plication of benefits.
All requests for disaster assis-
tance are put on hold when an
applicant indicates they have in-
surance coverage, and a letter is
sent out denying assistance at
least until a more complete pic-
ture is available.
If an applicant receives the
final insurance settlement and
still has unmet needs, they must
appeal FEMA's initial decision by
providing insurance documenta-
tion.
After FEMA receives the insur-
ance settlement letter, it can then
determine the extent of the appli-


cant's unmet needs and complete
an appeal-review and determine
if there is eligibility for assistance.
Tlose who registered for assis-
tance with FEMA and who have
settled with their insurance com-
panies have 60 days from the date
of their original correspondence
(from FEMA) to submit an ap-
peal.
In cases where the applicant
is under-insured, disaster assis-
tance may be granted and used
for further household repair and
personal property losses.
To get information about writ-
ing an appeal letter, an applicant
may call the toll-free Helpline at
800-621-FEMA (3362).
The hard of hearing, deaf and
speech impaired may call the TTY
number at 800-462-7585. Mul-


tilingual assistance is available,
and operators are available from
7 a.m. to midnight daily until fur-
ther notice
Applicants must submit their'
appeal in writing (including cop-
ies of the' insurance. documents)
to: FEMA Appeals Officer, Na-
tional Processing Service Center,
P.O. Box 10055, Hyattsville, MD
20782-7055 or you may fax them
to 800-872-8112.
Your appeal must be post-
marked within 60 days of the date
of the original correspondence:
Appeals will not be accepted
after this date.
FEMA will review your appeal
and make a ruling as soon as pos-
sible, usually within 30 days of re-
ceiving your request.
Applicants will be notified in


writing of the appeal decision.
FEMA coordinates the federal
government's role in preparing
for, preventing, mitigating the ef-
fects of, responding to, and recov-
ering from all domestic disasters,
whether natural or man-made,
including acts of terror.
Disaster recovery assistance is

Michelle Obama Meets with Military Community in Pensacola


Mrs. Obama
introduced by Wendy
Bennett whose
husband served in
Gulf War and Iraq

PENSACOLA Michelle
Obama, wife of Democratic Presi-
dential nominee, Senator Barack
Obama, met with 14 members of
the military community in Pensa-
cola today before taking the stage
for an 'Early Vote for Change'
rally.
Among those who met with
Mrs. Obama were Wendy Ben-
nett, a military wife and mother


whose husband is serving in Iraq,
and Amanda Allen, a junior at-
tending the University of West
Florida, whose husband currently
serves in the Navy.
Also in attendance were mili-
tary community members who
volunteer for the Obama-Biden
campaign and serve as Team Pen-
sacola members and have been
heavily involved in the campaign's
grassroots voter registration and
early vote for change efforts.
At Tuesday's meeting, Mrs.
Obama thanked them for their
service tothe country, and shared
her perspective on the opportu-
nity that military families have in
this year's election to cast their
ballot for the only candidate who


shares their vision of a military
system that does more to support
its troops and their families.
"If there's one thing I've
learned from these roundtables,
it's that when our military goes to
war, their families go with them,"
said Mrs. Obama.
"Barack is the only candidate
in this race who wants to create a
21st century VA that offers world-
class care and rejects the idea that
we should only treat combat in-
juries, but not those sustained in
training or on the deck of an air-
craft carrier.
"And Barack is the only candi-
date in this election who has put
the middle class at the heart of his
economic plan."


Today's meeting builds on
the series of roundtable discus-
sions that Mrs. Obama has hosted
with military families over the last
several months to give a voice to
the concerns of men and women
who are facing the challenges of
balancing work and family par-
ticularly in a troubled economy -
and to help communicate Obama
and Biden's plans to support
America's families.
Mrs. Obama has met with mili-
tary spouses and families in North
Carolina, Kentucky, Virginia, New
Mexico and Pennsylvania.
The rally is part of the Obama-
Biden campaign's three day barn-
storm across the state to mark
the beginning of early voting in


Florida.
Democratic Presidential Nom-
inee Barack Obama, Michelle
Obama, U.S. Senator Hillary Clin-
ton and New Mexico Governor
Bill Richardson will crisscross the
state, speaking with Floridians
about the importance of early vot-
ing and making their voice heard
at the polls in advance of Election
Day in order to bring the change
we need in Florida and across the
nation.
Mrs. Obama will join her hus-
band in Miami for an 'Early Vote
for Change' rally.
Tomorrow, Mrs. Obama will
host similar events in Jackson-
ville and Gainesville, where she
will be introduced by Command


Sergeant Major Michelle Jones,
who served as the 9th Command
Sergeant Major of the Army Re-
serve from October 2002 through
August 2006, and retired in March
2007 after 25 years of service.
Wendy's father served in the
Navy, her husband entered Active
Duty service during the Vietnam
era and recently retired from the
U.S Army reserve, following ser-
vice in the war in Iraq.
He is currently on a civilian De-
partment of Defense assignment
in Baghdad. Wendy's. two sons
have also served in the Army.
