Debra Stallings has often men-
tioned that some people do not
use seat belts because they are
afraid of not being able to escape
from a fire or from being sub-
merged underwater. She main-
tains that occupants who do not
use seat belts are too impaired
from their injuries to make an es-
cape.
The Glades County CTST dis-
covered that less than 50 percent
of local drivers used seat belts on
neighborhood or county roads in
this rural area. Traffic team obser-
vations occurred within the last
two years. Statewide seat belt use
is about 80 percent.

first campaign for the statewide

GLADES -- Visitors find that
there are many ways to view the
rural and undeveloped country-
side of Glades County. Besides
traveling along the roads, visitors
can navigate the waterways or
hike along the trails. Recently, a
new marina project had a ground


breaking ceremony in the river
town of Moore Haven, which
sits at the intersection of Lake
Okeechobee and the Caloosa-
hatchee River; and is a section of
the Okeechobee Waterway.

Lock is located at this waterway
intersection. The original 1918

Special to The Sun
During the week in
Belle Glade and Paho-
kee, many kids are off
the streets and in the
gym where they are
safe and out of trouble
says Deputy Sheriff Mi-
chael LeStrange who
coaches kids at the
Palm Beach County
Sheriff Police Athletic
League Youth Center in
Pahokee. Felix Sanchez
"Since the youth Sanchez proudl
boxing program start- PAL Boxing pro!
ed in the Glades nine
years ago, we have
seen multitudes of kids make good choices
by not succumbing to negative peer pres-


sure. We mandate that
our youth boxers follow
a strict code of conduct
to maintain membership.
The PAL youth boxer will
agree to respecting par-
ents, teachers, persons
of authority, and respect
all peobpler as they'd ld
liet b epetd Tey
cannot be a gang mem-
ber, and must stay clear of
all unlawful activity. In ad-
dition, the PAL boxer can-
not use drugs, alcoholic
beverages, tobacco prod.
Icts Ho estyis reqounrdedd
as sir and ma'an s


ership of PBSO Colonel Mike Gauger he
learned the value of the school watch pro-
gram in community policing. Consequently
he visits Pahokee Middle/High School once a
week to ensure that his PAL boxers are in
school and behaving. "The boxers will pro-
duce their report cards when asked to do so.
We will help our struggling students. Asst.
Principal Mary Ford is an outstanding asset
to her students and will tutor the PAL pro-
gram participants."
Verbain Curry is the first college student
in the PBSO boxing program in the Glades.
Curry joined the program in 2003 under Sgt.
Sean Flynn and Coach Willie Wiggens.
"Curry is a role model for his peers, we
are proud of him" said Flynn. Curry is a 5
time Florida champion and was ranked
nationally. Last Saturday, Coach LeStrange
brought the Pahokee and Belle Glade PAL
boxing teams to the Boca Raton Police Ath-


letic League to compete. Fifteen-year-old Fe-
lix Sanchez from Pahokee High School won
a convincing three-round decision against
Mark James from Ft. Lauderdale.
Sixteen-year-old Nicholas Sanchez also a
student of Pahokee High School also won a
three-round decision against Kendall Louis
from Hollywood.
"The Sanchez brothers are very hard
working athletes who take their sport very
seriously. "They help each other" said LeS-
trange.
Also eight-year-old Deonte Altman who
is a student at Grove Elementary School
in Belle Glade won a three-round decision
against John Conley from Miami Dade. Ten-
year-old Michael Guerrier from Pahokee
Elementary had a very good 3 round box-
ing match against Zackary Bram from Royal
Palm Beach.

It's true: An13

By Pat Dobbins
Even the cutest, cuddliest, fuzziest, sweet-

et ppywcna obite Mt p)Tspl ae bten
know. Unfortunately, some owners actually
promote aggression in their dogs or allow
aggression to go unchecked.
Dog bites are a serious problem. In the
U.S. over 800,000 dog bites are reported an-
nually. Many bite injuries go untreated. On
average, about a dozen people die each year
from dog bite injuries. There are steps we
can take to address this problem.
Who's being bitten? The number of
recorded dog bite injuries is significantly
higher in children than adults. The elderly
and home service providers such as mail
carriers, meter readers and cable workers
are also high on the list of frequent dog bite

Watt can you do? Be a responsible pet
owner. Obey leash laws. Use a leash in pub-
lic to ensure you are able to control your
dog. If you have a fenced yard, make sure
the gates are secure.
Make sure your pet is socialized as a pup-
py so it feels comfortable around people and
other animals. Don't put your dog in a posi-
tion where it feels threatened or teased.
How can you and your family avoid be-
ing bitten? Be cautious around strange dogs
and treat your own pet with respect.
Other tips that may prevent or stop a dog
attack include: Don't run past a dog. Dogs
naturally love to chase and catch things.
Don't give them a reason to become excited
or aggressive. Never disturb a dog that's car-
ing for puppies, sleeping or eating. Never
reach through or over a fence to pet a dog.
Dogs can be protective of their territory, and
may see your action as a threat.
If a dog approaches to sniff you, stay still.
In most cases, the dog will go away when it
determines you are not a threat. If you are
threatened by a dog, remain calm. Try not to

sce~ram orsyell. What should you do if your
Even if the bite can be explained (e.g ,
someone stepped on your dog's tail), it's in -
portant to take responsibility for your dog's
actions by taking these steps: Restrain the
dog immediately. Separate it from the scene
of the attack. Confine it. Wash wounds with

uate bite wounds and the risk of rabies or
other infections. Provide important informa-
tion including your name, address and infor-
mation about your dog's most recent rabies
vaccination. .
If your dog does not have a current rabies
vaccination, it may be necessary to quaran-
tine it or even euthanize it for rabies testing.
What if you are bitten?
If your own dog bites you, confine it im-
mediately and call your vet to check your
dog's vaccination records. Talk with them
about your dog's aggressive action.
Your vet can examine your dog to make
sure it's healthy, and may provide you with
information about training your dog. If
someone else's dog bites you, first seek
medical treatment for your wound.

West Palm Beach, FL -Health Care Dis-
trict of Palm Beach County employees made
more than $12,000 in personal financial do-
nations through an internal employee fund-
raising campaign to aid victims of the devas-
tating earthquake in Haiti.
The total $12 143.08 in donations were
presented to the Greater Palm Beach Area
Chapter of the American Red Cross to sup-
port the agency's emergency relief and re-
covery efforts that include raising money
for the Haitian Red Cross and working with
local Haitian-Arnerican residents and their
families.
As a part of the relief drive, which con-
cluded Friday, February 12, employees also
donated food supplies for survivors of the
natural disaster.
Many of the Health Care District's 1,000
employees have strong farnily ties to Haiti,
and sorne have been personally affected by
the earthquake.
"At a time when the need in Haiti is so
great, we wanted to provide a collaborative
way for our employees to not only help the
earthquake victims in Haiti, but also allow
then to show support for their neighbors
and co-workers who have farnily there,
said Dwight D. Chenette, MBA, MPH, Chief
Executive Officer of the Health Care District
of Palin Beach County. "I am deeply moved
by our employees' overwhelming generosity


and good will, which is even more irnpres-
sive considering many of us have already
donated to various relief efforts in our con-
Inunity.
Food donations were delivered to Food
for the Poor, an international emergency re-
lief organization based in South Florida that
raises funds and provides direct assistance
to impoverished people throughout Latin
America and the Caribbean.
Because of its ongoing work in Haiti,
Food for the Poor was able to irnrediately
respond and find alternative ways to deliver
aid in spite of the distribution challenges that
arose in the days following the quake.
Employees contributed to the campaign
via personal check, payroll deduction, and
by donating accrued paid time off, which
the District converted to a monetary contri-
bution.
"The outpouring of support by our ern-
ployees for those in need in this irnpover-
ished country is both impressive and ap-
preciated," said Mr. Chenette. "I arn proud
to work with such a charitable, kindhearted
and caring group of employees."
One Health Care District employee was
able to donate his free time and expertise to
provide medical relief in the days following
the quake. Daniel B. Kairys, MD, a surgeon
at Lakeside Medical Center in Belle Glade,
which is owned and operated by the Health


Care District, was among the first wave of
medical responders after the earthquake
struck on January 12.
He and his Haitian-born wife, Junia, a
physician's assistant, made their way to the
capital city of Port-au-Prince as part of Proj-
ect Medishare for Haiti, a non-profit medical
relief organization, to provide medical care
to those injured in the disaster.

Free health fair for residents to be held March 14


12 Glades County Democrat


Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


Health care access is more
difficult for rural people

By Nena Bolan
INI Florida

HENDRY/GLADES -- Each year there is
a free health clinic held at Hendry Regional
Medical Center (HRMC) in Clewiston, The
screening and testing are free to Glades and
Hendry residents. About 130 medical stu-
dents attend the fair with doctors, nurses
and technicians who volunteer their time.
At last year's health fair, a medical stu-
dent detected a problem with a young
Inan's heartbeat. After an examination by a
physician, he was rushed to the emergency
room and air lifted to a facility where he had
surgery that night on his nine-centirneter
aneurysm. The procedure saved his life. He
had not been to a doctor and was unaware
of his serious condition.
This episode is a clear example of the
importance of offering free services to rural
residents. Medical students have discovered
shocking numbers of newly diagnosed cases
of diabetes, high blood pressure and other
medical conditions identified by health care


volunteers.
"This is something that will always stay
in the minds of the approximately 130 Inedi-
cal students who corne here each year," said
Ellen Geake, medical office manager and
health fair organizer.
This free health fair is one of the tools that
may encourage future physicians to live and
work in rural areas. This year's health fair
will be held on Sunday, March 14 at HRMC
in Clewiston. The gates open at 10 a.In. and
close at 3 p.In. Services offered are rnedi-
cal and dental screening, bone density test-
ing, eye and hearing exarns, HIV education
and testing, quit smoking programs, breast
exarns and vouchers for Inarnrograrns,
if medical workers determine it is needed.
There are many more services for all age
groups.
The Hendry/Glades Health Department
will be on hand to give out free safety hel-
rnets. Children have to be present to be fitted
for the free helmet. Along with free medical
services, vendors will have educational ma-
terial and products to share with residents.
Additionally, a free lunch is provided for
every person who takes advantage of these
services. Through local support, as well as
the Everglades Area Health Education Cen-
ters and Lake Okeechobee Rural Health Net-


work, this unique event has been successful
each year since 2003. Over 4,000 people of
Hendry, Glades and surrounding cornruni-
ties have benefited from these services.
Local officials and health care providers
know that it is difficult for rural people to
find adequate health care as easily as their
urban neighbors. The National Rural Health
Association (NRHA) is a non profit organi-
zation that provides research and leadership
on rural health issue. Its nernbers share a
cornron interest in rural health care and
have bonds with their local cornrunities.
Research accumulated by NRHA has sone
interesting facts about the condition of rural
health care in the United States.
Did you know that nearly one-fourth of
the population lives in rural areas, yet only
10 percent of physicians practice in rural ar-
eas? Rural residents are less likely to be cov-
ered by Medicaid benefits than their urban
counterparts, and they have less employer-
provided health care coverage or prescrip-
tion drug coverage.
Even though one-third of all motorvehicle
accidents happen in rural areas, at least two-
thirds of all motor vehicle deaths happen in
rural areas. According to NRHA, people who
live in rural cornrunities are nearly twice as
likely to die from unintentional injuries other


than motor vehicle accidents, as compared
to urban residents.
According to NRHA, from 57 to 90 per-
cent of first responders are volunteers. Rural
residents have greater transportation chal-
lenges than urban dwellers, often traveling
great distances to reach doctors, specialists,
dentists or hospitals.
Medicare payments to rural hospitals and
physicians are drastically lower than their ur-
ban counterparts for equivalent services. It
is no surprise that nearly 500 rural hospitals
have closed within the last 25 years.
Rural residents tend to be poorer, and
nearly 24 percent of rural children live in
poverty. Rural residents have a higher per-
centage of alcohol and tobacco use, a high-
er occurrence of hypertension; and a higher
suicide rate among its men and children.
The suicide rate among rural wornen is in-
creasing.
A free health fair is welcome in this ru-
ral area. Let your relatives, neighbors and
friends know that this event takes place on
March 14 in Clewiston at Hendry Regional
Medical Center.

sonville District cornrander. The Corps is
rehabilitating the dike's most vulnerable
section of the dike -the 22-rnile southeast
stretch between Port Mayaca and Belle
Glade.
Pantano said the Corps worked with FWS
experts to develop a good plan, including es-
tablishing a 660-foot buffer zone around the
nest several months ago to help protect the
birds and the tree. "After many discussions,
relocating the eaglets was the best cornpro-
Inise to save the eaglets and continue con-
struction that's critical to the safety of south
Florida residents. As we take actions to re-
duce risk to public safety, we recognize that
other interests may be affected. We try very
hard to reduce these affects," Pantano said.
The Corps' goal is to complete the quarry
fill prior to hurricane season, and delaying
work until the eaglets fledged would have
required work at both sites stop for two
months. The cost of putting two contractors
on standby for two months equates to about
$2.5 million. The Corps always strives to use
public funds as responsibly and efficiently as
possible.
The rehabilitation tearn was aware of the
nest's presence and the potential risk asso-
ciated with the eagles using the nest during
construction. According to FWS specialists,
eagle-breeding season runs from October
through May- so there isn't a "good" time to
perform long-terrn work that must be done.
"This solution is considered the best al-
ternative under the circumstances for the ea-
glets' safety, as well as for human health and
safety concerns. In order to get the job done
before the 2010 hurricane season starts, the
Corps needs to continue vital work on the
Herbert Hoover Dike project," said Paul Sou-
za, the FWS's South Florida field supervisor.

Local agencies removed two eaglets from the site of the continuing Herbert
Hoover Dike Rehabilitation project.


"There are always risks associated with
removing eaglets from the nests and foster-
ing then into adoptive nests. However, the
Service has confidence in and considers
Audubon to be the best qualified eagle reha-
bilitators in this situation to make the most
appropriate decisions in the best interest of
the survival of these eaglets."
The Corps began working with its con-
struction contractors in early October to
gather information for a FWS eagle distur-
bance permit, should the need for one arise.
In early December 2009, the eagles laid two
eggs. The Corps provided a permit applica-
tion to the FWS later that month. After two
eaglets hatched in Inid-January, the Corps
and FWS began to develop a plan to protect
both the eaglets. Though eagles are no lon-


ger covered by the Endangered Species Act,
they remain protected under the Bald and
Golden Eagle Protection Act, the Migratory
Bird Treaty Act and the state bald eagle rule.
The Corps will continue monitoring the
nest and adult pair until all dike construc-
tion in the area is finished. Contractors on
the work site will also take measures to pro-
tect the nest tree for future nesting activities.
Project engineers anticipate the contractors
will complete construction in the area prior
to another nesting.
For more information and photos of the
eaglets' removal activity, please go to the

Agencies work together to relocate, foster Bald Eaglets


Critical Dike Rehabilitation
COntinueS

Jacksonville -Federal, State and non-
governmental agencies worked together to
successfully remove two six-week old bald
eaglets Thursday from a nest near two Her-
bert Hoover Dike Rehabilitation Project sites
in Palin Beach County.
Relocating the eaglets allows the 11.S.
Arrny Corps of Engineers to maintain con-
struction mornenturn and complete priority
work in the southeast section of the dike pri-
or to hurricane season. Corps' contractors
are filling a quarry at one site and installing
a partial cutoff wall from the dike crest to
about 70 feet below at the second site. Both
projects are critical to stopping and prevent-
ing excess seepage and erosion that can
lead to dike failure
Two five-pound eaglets were safely re-
moved from a nest located four miles south
of Pahokee. Working with U.S. Fish & Wild-
life Service officials, the Corps contracted the
Audubon Center for Birds of Prey (ACBOP)
to conduct the relocation and care for the
eaglets until a suitable foster nest is found.
Audubon specialists routinely foster eagles
and other orphaned birds of prey into foster
nests with great success. Two hundred eagle
nests are now in the organization's Eagle-
Watch program.
"It was a bitter-sweet event, but we're
extremely pleased the eaglets were safely
removed and are in Audubon's care. At this
point in our rehabilitation process, continu-
ing to make progress on this high-priority
stretch requires work in the vicinity of the
nest," said Col. Al Pantano, the Corps' Jack-

in sheep's clothing but inwardly they are
ferocious wolves (Matthew 7:15)." People
misrepresent for personal gain and do great
harm to those who really want to help.
Periodically, I get announcements about
persons impersonating clergy who seek to
raise funds for some "cause" and want the
support of unsuspecting people. One lady
in a church I served was asked to support
Church-run orphanage overseas and asked
me about it. I wrote to our Church in the
region to check on the legitimacy of the so-
licitation for her; she was pleased to know
just where her money was going from an
independent source. In these times of fi-
nancial hardships, there are more and more
solicitations from Churches and to Church
members for aid; some being questionable
and of doubtful veracity.
Like the buyer, the giver must also be-
ware in his efforts to do good. Churches are
vulnerable and I am always suspect when
a request comes from a source that I really
do not know much about. As a rule, I get
in touch with the supposed benefactor (if I
can) and check out the organization that is
purported to be represented. Recently, the
clergy of our own Ministerial Association
were discussing how we could help those

dahrage reH icti andofher cnens amhing"
the clergy was that we would work with or-
ganized, known charities who had a track
record of helping in the area we wished to
serve.
All too often, it is in times of crises that
people want to help, only to support a cause
(or group) other than what they intended.
My recommendation to people is to chan-
nel their resources through local Churches
(or local organizations) that have some
contact with the region, the cause, the need
for which support is solicited. In the past I
have called my neighboring clergy when
there is a question about a cause, and oth-
ers have checked with me when someone
represents himself/herself as a member of a
Church I serve. Funds are tight these days;
money is short and the needs are great. My
hope is to make every dollar count and go
to the causes intended; to (literally) get "the
biggest bang for the buck!" The old adage,

an h ederoe utschn rsotu tess ape he re
they are intended, really helping people in
need, and doing good. I am happy to help
people to check and would suggest that
local resources would be the best place to
begin.

The key lessons life taught
me
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I thought, "Age should speak; advanced
years should teach wisdom." But it is the
s irit in a man, the breath of the Almi It '
that gives him understanding. It is not only
the old who are wise, not only the aged
who understand what is right. Therefore I
say: "Listen to me; I too will tell you what I
know." (Job 32:7-10)
Time heals almost everything. Give time
time. However good or bad a situation is, it
will change.
Don't take yourself so seriously. No one
else does. Believe in miracles. Your children


get only one childhood.
Don't audit life. Show up and make the
most of it now. Growing old beats the alter-
native -- dying young.
Envy is a waste of time. You already have
all you need. The best is yet to come. Yield. If
we all threw our problems in a pile and saw
everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.
No matter how you feel, get up, dress up
and show up. Life isn't tied with a bow, but
it's still a gift.
Burn the candles, use the nice sheets,
wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a
special occasion. Today is special.
Over prepare, then go with the flow. Be
eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to
wear purple. The most important sex organ
is the brain
No one is in charge of your happiness
but you. Frame every so-called disaster with
these words "In five years, will this matter?"
All that truly matters in the end is that you
loved. God loves you b because of who God is,
not because of anything you did or didn't do.
Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting
everywhere. (By Regina Brett, 90 years old).

What have you taught your
kids?
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
In Proverbs 4:10-11 it says "Hear, O my
son, and receive my sayings, and the years
of thy life shall be many. I have taught thee
in the ways of wisdom; I have led thee in
right paths." Can you as a parent say that to
your children?
Many times I have heard parents lament,
"What have I done wrong?" Parents are all
too willing to take the blame when their chil-
dren make poor choices or get themselves
into trouble. Parents want so much for their
children to succeed and have pleasant, care-
free lives. That is why there is special joy in
seeing children succeed. Mothers and Fathers
can feel pride and take some credit fo their
children when they do well. It is an honor
to the parents of children who succeed, that
they have done a good job of bringing them
up. When parents take interest in their chil-
dren and treat them with respect and care,
they are giving them as great a gift as is pos-
sible. Those children who come from fami-
lies where they are supposed to have the
neatest hoan e of living good lives when

Our heavenly Father has tried to instruct
us in the ways that lead to eternal life. He
has allowed us to make our own choices,
though, and we must take responsibility for
them, bad or good. It is His greatest wish
that we follow the wisdom of His will. When
we do so it is to His glory as well as ours,
that we have learned well. By listening to
our heavenly Father, our lives are enriched
and the years of our lives will be multiplied.
The Bible says, "Train up a child in the
way he should go, and when he is old he
will not depart from it." Have you taught you
kids what Sin is (I John 3:4, James 4:17),
what the wage of sin is (Romans 6:23), how
their sins can be forgiven (John 14:6, Mark
16:15-16, Acts 2:38, 8:26-39), and what it
means to live the Christian Life (Galatians
2:20). Have you taught them the importance
of Church attendance (Hebrews 10:24-31),
the importance of the Lord's Supper (John

hs3 prospre te ( eC 162 : al coh
3:10) and the importance of Personal Evan-
gelism (John 15:1-8. Have you set the right
example by doing these things yourself
(Matthew 6:33). If "Love" (Agape) means to
"seek the HIGHEST GOOD", are you seeking
their highest good do you really love them
by this definition?

Link-Up America is a federally-sponsored program that provides discounted service installation
charges to qualifying low-income customers. It provides a 50 percent discount, up to a maximum

ers.

by the Lone Cypress, which served as a land-
mark for early sailors. In 1935, the lock was
re-constructed when the Herbert Hoover
Dike was built.
The local rim canal was excavated as a
result of building the Herbert Hoover Dike
around Lake Okeechobee in the 1930s. The
rim canal is a deep channel that runs along
the inside edge of the dike. Sometimes the
canal appears to be part of the lake, while in
other places it is separated from the lake by
marshes or grassy islands.
Boaters can use the rim canal as a means
to circumnavigate the lake. Many cuts or
small channels give access to the big lake
from the deeper rim canal. Lake Okeecho-
bee is a shallow body of water, and a boater
truly needs to allow for natural obstructions.
This makes the rim canal a convenient route
for navigation.
Visitors to the historic section of Moore
Haven can see the Lone Cypress and a sec-
