Long-term price increases expected to ease


Editor's note: This is the final seg-
ment of a series looking at afford-
ability trends of real estate in the
localmarket
By Mark Young
CLEWISTON The long-term
picture of the current real estate
boom is what you could expect
from any boom and bust cycle,
and that it should reach a peak
eventually.
.But while the exploding real
estate industry will begin to sub-
side as the federal government
begins a steady increase in interest


rates, which were dropped to
record lows following the Sept. 11
terrorist attacks, which temporari-
ly stalled the economy, the norm
of affordability has been changed
for good.
* It's inevitable that the cost of
living will increase over time, but
this current real estate trend has
jump started the affordability lev-
els of many people.
Developers took full advantage
of the current market and new-
home construction has been
booming across South Florida to
coincide with the "seller's mar-


ket".
As real estate prices begin to
steady, as is predicted by financial
experts in the short-term future,
the impact the boom had on
median income families will have
a long-lasting effect. Coastal com-
munities in Florida will feel that
effect for a long time to come, but
smaller rural areas, which exist in
Hendry County and surrounding
communities, can ,still hold onto
some hope that solutions exist to,
at least, bring some sense of
affordability back into the equa-
tion.

Some local realtors feel city
and county governments' can play
a major role in the solutions by
simply expanding city limits and,
taking advantage of outlying areas
for development. Clewiston is
need of housing, this cannot be
disputed, but there are limitations
because of the way the city was
initially designed.
"You can't go south because
U.S. Sugar is there," said Laura
Smith, from Dyess Realty. "You
can't go north, you can go a little
east,'but going west right now, I
don't see anything going west


within the city limits.
Mrs. Smith said the city will
have to start looking at annexation
of outlying lands as a solution to
begin building more homes with-
in the city limits, which can help
keep affordability within reason,
because the city would have some
control over the development
process.
"The city center will eventually
be all commercial, which it basi-
cally is now," she said. "Resi-
dences will have to eventually go

Children caught


in the middle


Editor's note: As part of honor-
ing ChildAbuse/Neglect Preven-
tion Month, the following is a
guest article from Reverend
Samuel Thomas who has
worked with abused children
throughout the course of his
career.
By Reverend
Samuel Thomas
Following a divorce and
alleged "kidnapping" of a young
boy by the father, the mother's
lawyer took the case to another
court. She won custody.
I was asked to see the boy by
the mother. For most of his life-,
he had grown up with his father.
Now, suddenly, he was to start
life with his mother. The mother
was advised to get someone
who could help with the adjust-


ments the boy would have to
make. He would tell me that the
judge didn't listen to him he
wanted to live with his father.
He told me about the peti-
tions of his classmates to let him
stay and continue with his
schooling and friends he told
about how he didn't like his new
situation. Each time his mother
saw me, the first words out of
her mouth were, "Did my
lawyer contact you yet?" I would
talk to her about trying to under-
stand the adjustment that this
child was having to make a
new school, loss of friends, toys
..and souvenirs that were left
behind, new and different cloth-
ing, all of those things.
I suggested that she should

Animal rehab focus of Rotary meeting


By Mark Young
CLEWISTON Arnold's
Wildlife Rehabilitation Center
was built from the ground up by
Sue Arnold and over the past
decades has emerged into one of
the region's premier places to
bring Florida wildlife for rehabili-
tation and hopeful release back
into the wild.
Located in Okeechobee,
14895 N.W. 30th Terrace, there
are still many across the lake
region who do not know of the
tremendous work this organiza-
tion has performed in helping to
preserve the valuable wildlife in
Florida.
Stacy Hayworth, an intern at
the center and a FSU graduate
with a BS in biology, was the
guest speaker at this week's
Clewiston Rotary Club, and pro-


vided more of an insight as to
what the center's function is all
about.
"We are a non-profit, educa-
tional-based facility very dedicat-
ed of bringing people and
wildlife together to build a com-
munity of understanding," said
Ms. Hayworth. "It's important
that everyone understands the
wildlife in Florida because we
believe that it's everyone's
responsibility to pitch in to save
them and help preserve them."
Currently, the center is home
to six Florida Panthers, the most
endangered species in the state
with only an estimated 80 ani-
mals currently in the wild and
less than 200 in captivity. Out of
the six panthers, only one was
born at the center Lily, the
daughter of Jake, the first panther
to take up residence at the center.


"Sue wanted an animal that
she could take around the
schools to educate children, but
wanted an. animal that would
inspire awe," said Ms. Hayworth.
"That's when she got Jake."
Jake has fulfilled his role of
inspiring awe very well, as the
center began to draw curiosity-
seekers and animal lovers alike,
drawing together man and ani-
mal into a common bond of
understanding. The center is
home to a variety of Florida
wildlife from the endangered
panther, to the common skunk
and deer, to the bobcat, to sever-
al species of raptors.
It was a run-in with a raptor
and Rotary President-elect Scott
Egan-Wyer, that eventually
brought Ms. Hayworth to the

Brown Sugar is more than festival fun


By Mark Young
HARLEM The upcoming
Brown Sugar Festival, kicking off
the last weekend in April and run-
ning through the first weekend of
May, is much more than a week-
long event filled with festival fun
and goodies.
According to Jackie Young, sec-
- retary of the Harlem Academy, the
event serves as a fundraiser for
scholarships, which benefit all of
Clewiston's students.
"I can't stress enough that these
scholarships are not just for the
Harlem community," said Ms.
Young. "It's for kids at Clewiston
High School or whoever qualifies
and meets the criteria."


Last year, the Brown Sugar Fes-
tival raised $7,500 for scholarships,
which were awarded to as many as
a dozen students.
"The amount depends on how
much we raise each year, but last
year we awarded scholarships to
everyone who applied," Ms. Young
explained. "That means some of
the scholarships may have been
only a couple of hundred dollars,
but everyone who applied received
something."
The problem this year is that
haven't been any students who
have applied for these scholarships
and the deadline is quickly
approaching. Ms. Young said the
deadline for submitting an applica-
tion April 25.


While the festival takes pride in
giving back to their Clewiston com-
munity, it remains one of the pre-
mier draws of tourists from all over.
Ms. Young said they are expecting
as many as 10,000 visitors to this
year's festival activities, which
kicks off officially April 30, with a
gospel concert at Mt. Calvary Bap-
tist Church.
Events will be held throughout
the week, which ends May 7, with
the main festival activities. The
activities are many, which has
brought on some additional con-
cerns for organizers.
"We need as many volunteers
as we can get to help us," said Ms.
Young. "We are looking for man-
power."


For more information on help-
ing out with this year's Brown
Sugar Festival, contact Dan Paige,
president of the Harlem Academy
Alumni Association at (561) 996-
9255 or Ms. Young at (863) 228-
1550. Scholarship applications can
be picked up at the, Harlem Library
or at the Clewiston High School
guidance office.
The parade, which is May 7, is
still looking for entries and Ms.
Young said it is open to anyone
who wants to enter the parade and
welcomes Miss Hendry County and
Miss Sugar to participate alongside
this year's Miss Brown Sugar.
To participate in the parade,
interested people must contact the
Harlem Library.

Godz to lead Social Security reform awareness effort


The National Center for Policy
Analysis (NCPA) announced that
Wanda E. Gozdz will lead its Team
NCPA initiative in Florida. Team
NCPA is a special project of the
Dallas-based think tank to educate
the general public about the criti-
cal need for Social Security reform
and the benefits of a personal
investment-based approach.
"The number one domestic
policy issue being debated in halls
of Congress and around water
coolers all across America is Social
Security reform, and Florida is
primed to play a key role," said
NCPA chairman Gov. Pete du Pont,
former Governor of Delaware.
"Wanda understands the true
nature of the .problem and the
benefits personal investment-
based reform can have for individ-


uals, as well as the nation's overall
economy. We are happy she has:
agreed to join our efforts as she
brings a great deal, of expertise
and insight to the issue."
' A resident of Fort Lauderdale
and Hutchison Island, Gozdz is
the president and owner of W
Gozdz Enterprises, Inc., a compa-
ny that provides services designed
to assist people in managing.print
and electronic information and
communications resources.
"As a businesswoman I am
concerned about the impact the
troubled Social Security system
will have on our economy," said
Gozdz. "But I am more anxious as
a proud grandmother about the
burden my grandkids will face if
we do not act now to permanently
save and modernize the system."


Gozdz and the Florida advisory
board will speak to organizations
across the state, outlining in sim-
ple terms why Social Security
reform is important, why Congress
must act sooner rather than later,
and why personal retirement
accounts are an essential part of
any solution, '
Gozdz is active in public policy,
and was a founding board mem-
ber and served as Founding Presi-
dent of the Boca/Delray Chapter of
the National Organization of
Women Business Owners
(NAWBO); President of NAWBO
of Florida, Inc., and currently
serves as President of Florida
Women Impacting Public Policy
(WIPP). She is also a member of
the League of Women Voters and
Leadership Broward.


Team NCPA is a special project
of the NCPA to educate policy
makers, opinion leaders and the
general public about the crisis fac-
ing Social Security and the benefits
of personal investment-based
reform. The two-year old project is
an all-volunteer network of con-
cerned citizens who are dedicated
to saving Social Security in a way
that protects current and near
retirees, and gives younger Ameri-
cans the. opportunity to enjoy a
secure retirement.

The night 2,500 perished in 1928 ,hurricane

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE -- "Hurricane
SFrances and Jeanne were just a
windy and rainy day compared to
the 1928 hurricane," Dr. Janis .
Andrews told a crowd of faces in .
Agreement. Only the survivors of .


Small three hurricanes Knew truly
what she spoke about.
Dr. Andrews was one of sever-
: al presenters at an event at the
Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center
April 8 that focused on the terrible
circumstances of that fateful
j storm and a student documentary
0 that chronicles the story of several
of its survivors.
Pam Campbell, who helped
the west area gifted student to
achieve their extraordinary stu-
dent project, remembered the
experiences at the event she and
her students shared in the making
of the film.
"It was agreed that the story
that most needed to be, told was
of the 1928 hurricane," she said.
Soon, the 1987-1988 gifted stu-
,. dents took to researching and set-
ting up interviews with hurricane
survivors. The fear that the stu-
dents and survivors might not
have such an easy task ahead of
::them quickly turned to be an
excellent experience for the stu-
dents, who were enthralled at the
stories of the survivors. "I found
every story that every citizen told
us to be compelling," Ms. Camp-
bell said.
The film was shown again to
those attending the event last
( week at the-Dolly Hand Cultural
Arts Center. Filled with both tragic
and humorous anecdotes, the 50-

FIour survivors of the fateful storm that took the lives of thousands, attended an event at the
Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center where they saw a documentary of the storm. Pictured:
Lucille Salvatore Herron, Iris Salvatore Hodges, Mary Salvatore Paulette and Kathryn Rice
Fountain. Ms. Fountain still lives in the family home that survived the storm.


First shown to coincide with
the 60th anniversary of the storm,
the film remains a poignant look
at the storm, and the personal
effect it had on Glades citizens.
"So many of the film's voices are
now silent," said Ms. Campbell.
The stories in the film are var-
ied, but each has an important
message. In the telling of the sto-
ries, the interview subjects
remember the fears they. had that
day, struggling against being swept
away from the waters, which had
escaped the boundaries of Lake
Okeechobee to devour the com-
munities that stood by it.
One of the survivors recounts
her parents resorting to climbing


remembers the tranquility of hav-
ing 19 people riding out the storm
in a single house, which quickly
turned to horror the next day,
when the survivor, as a little girl,
realized that 17 of the 19 perished.
They remembered being young,
but faced with a terrible reality
that few in their old age live to see.
"We were enjoying it, not hav-
ing sense enough that something
bad was going to take place,"
Vernie Boots, one of the survivors
said in the film, as he remem-
bered seeking' shelter with his
family and a number of other
people. "The black folks were
singing and praying," he said, "the
white folks were very quiet."

Dr. Helen Franke, Provost a'

remarked how the film shows.
"The indestructible spirit of the
people of the Glades, no matter
what the calamity."
The students who made the
film later turned over approxi-
mately nine hours in interviews,
the raw footage for the film, to the

Does daylight savings time
leave you tired? You are not alone.
Mariy people take a week or
a longer to adapt to a chaqrie in
their sleep pattern-s ; "' '
Humans are diurnal creatures
-we are designed to sleep when
-it is dark and be active when it is
light. Your body's internal clock
gets used to a certain schedule
that responds to sunlight. Chang-
ing the time is not just a matter of
a setting your clocks ahead an hour
S--your internrial'clock also must
Sbe readjusted and. that doesn't
happen overnight.
Children are most affected by
the time changes, according to Dr.
Jodi Mindell, author of "Sleeping
through the Night." Changing the
clock for Daylight Savings Time
means parents need to help their
children adjust to the schedules.
Dr. Mindell advises parents to
t be strict about bedtimes. Darken
the room if it is'still daylight
outside and go through the
normal bedtime routines. Insist


bed on schedule. If you let them
sleep late, it will only be that
much harder to get the child to
sleep at night.
Nutrition and exercise are also
important to resetting the body's
internal clocks. A healthy diet and
regular exercise will give you
more energy during the day.
For ,extreme, cases, some
researchers say melatonin sup-
plements may help to reset the
body's internal clock. Melatonin
is a substance manufactured by
the human body during' sleep.
However, while melatonin is sold
over the counter as a nutritional
supplement, health officials warn
that it should not be taken unless
you first consult your doctor.
There could be adverse effects for
those taking this supplement. For
example, taking melatonin in
supplement form may make you
drowsy.
Before taking any over the
counter drugs to help you
sleep or to help you stay awake -
consult your doctor. Just because
these drugs are sold without a
prescription, it does not mean
they are safe foryou. Consult your
physician before taking any nutri-
tional supplements or over-the-,
counter remedies. This is-espe-
cially important if you are on any

4 OPINION Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee Thursday, April 14, 2005


Speak Out

Speak Out is our free 24-hour opinion line. Call 983-9140
to express your opinion or ask a question about public
issues. You are not required to give your name. While we
want you to speak freely, the newspaper reserves the right to
edit calls for clarity, brevity, relevance and fairness.

Out of the loop?


I must. not be in the rumor mill of the area because I did not
really understand why the blame on the hospital and what kind of
records they want. The only thing I do know is I've been going to
the hospital for about eight years and the emergency room has
really improved in the last two years. I've gotten the best treat-
ment and the best care out there you can possibly get. I know I
would be hurt, if they ever closed that hospital. I sure hope that
they can this problem solved and straightened out so our hospital
still stays here.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. The quality of care the hospi-
tal provides has recently received high marks from their latest
evaluation. You are not alone, as an informal survey has over-
whelming support for the hospital to remain operational in
Hendry County, as it would be detrimental to the county if it were
not.
Praise the city workers
This is in reference to the Speak Out, "Put a lid on it." I just
want to say that instead of complaining about the city workers,
these people ought to praise them because they do a really fine
job in Clewiston.
No Privacy
The citizens of Hendry Counties should be aware that if you go
to certain government agencies, you do not have any privacy. Your
personal information is subject to gossip and hindrance if you are
seeking help. Clients are helped if the worker likes you or if you
are included in a program to benefit the worker. This needs to be
investigated and monitored from people who are unbiased when
it pertains to John Q public and taxpayers.'
Athletic scholarships
I need to know if there is anything I can do as a concerned resi-
dent and parent of an athlete in Clewiston. If there are as many
athletes, boys and girls, that go to college in Pahokee, Belle Glade,
Okeechobee, Moore Haven on athletic scholarships and there's
none at Clewiston. Clewiston has a great tradition of athletics, but
kids never seem to be able to go to college on athletic scholar-
ships. Is there a problem with our coaching staff? Is there anything
I can do? Can anybody help me?
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. With all of the available lev-
els of competitive colleges these days, student athletes have a
very good opportunity to continue their athletic careers. But even
in today's recruitment arena, it takes a combination of the coach,
parent, and student to make themselves attractive to the right
school. Some parents work very closely with their son or daugh-
ter's coach, some parents actively prepare video tape of their
child's performance, the athletes can begin a letter-writing cam-
paign to potential schools, and newspaper clippings are often
kept as a scrapbook and for self-promotion. Clewiston High
School has a great reputation and the school has sent several
athletes on to higher education through athletics, but in the
world of highly competitive recruitment, it truly does take a vil-
lage to raise an athlete.

Noise pollution
I'm calling about the annoying loud music that's playing here
in Clewiston on people's radios and homes. You can even sit in
your own home and listen to a decent program without some-
body driving by, or your neighbor next door or three door down or
next block over blaring their loud music.1t is,very annoying and
the police Ean'j.Ldo nothing about it until after- 11 p.m.I think the\
Sshould'o' something atoutl it before II p m.AThis is an ongoing
prol'lem and it does need to be taken care of it and frankly, I am'
sick and tired of hearing loud music.

No respect for your elders
I'm a resident of Harlem. Some boys, on bicycles, ride their
bicycles late at night, well past nightfall, and some of them threw
stones at the roof of my house. It's because their parents can't
control them. Boys can be incorrigible at times. I was thinking
that school board, the board of county commissioners, and the
city government and the sheriff's office and the city police should
issue a dusk to dawn curfew to curtail the young hooligans. A cur-
few worked during the hurricane emergency. It's the only way to
keep them safe. I have nothing against children in general, but the
kids nowadays have no respect for their elders and they should be
controlled. I'm only requesting this for their safety and our safety
as well.

You don't have to put this in Speak Out, but I think you're
gonna be hurting some feelings this time of year seeing the Sugar
Pageant is in full force. You have the pictures of the former queen
And the soon to be former queen and you've forgot to put one of
the contestants in the paper. That's going to make her feel pretty
bad when she sees everybody but herself. I'm surprised that you
don't recheckyour paper before it goes to print.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. Sometimes our own human-
ity shows and our imperfections are displayed for all to see. The
contestant that was left out of the pictures was the victim of
human error. We certainly hope this young girl knows that we
feel badly for the error and would not have intentionally done
this.


Choosing Church leaders; casting lots, rolling dice


The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Often someone will tell me
about a new Church leader and the
process of selection. My observa-
tion on the ; 1
process is that it /
is "like doing
cabinet-making .
with chain-
saws." It seems
to make use of
rough tools for
a fine end prod-
uct. It involves
committees Rev. Samuel
and screenings, S .ThoSa
applications, S.Thomas
interviews, visi-
tations to congregations to see the
person in, action, listening to ser-
mons, and a kind of, "dog and
pony show" process where one
can exhibit wares and talents.
- The Biblical account of the call-
ing of Matthias was somewhat dif-
ferent. Peter quotes the book of
Psalms (Actsl:20f0 and says that
Judas' office must be replaced to
bring the number of apostles back


to 12. They decided that someone
who would: "Have been with us
the whole time the Lord Jesus
went in and out among us" would
be the best candidate. Two were
proposed Joseph called Barsab-
bas and Matthias. /Theh they
prayed then they cast lots!
The lot fell upon Matthias and
he was admitted to the circle of 11
apostles. I have sat on interview
boards, I have worked with super-
vising clergy in the selection
process, I have been involved in
elections and I have worked devel-
oping screening procedures. Many
times, the process is colored by the
last person to have held the job.
The person, who is to be involved
want someone just like the former
minister, or someone exactly
opposite.
People who haven't been. near
a church in years will come out of
the woodwork to have a say. A list
will be drawn up that even Jesus
Himself couldn't fill and there are
those who have a dear friend who
would be just perfect for the job.
Give the complications in the
process, perhaps rolling dice (or


casting lots) has something to be
said for it. Thee is a long, compli-
cated process that depends on
people understanding what it is
they want and need often they
cannot articulate it nor are they
aware of what would be best.
Once, I had one group that told
me they wanted a "pastor". I asked
them to tell me what a pastor did
and what it was that they felt would
be helpful to them. Their definition
was that of a preacher of inspiring
sermons rather than someone
who visited, counseled, shared in
special events.
The leader, by other Biblical
standards, shall be a shepherd
(John 10:1 1ff) and servant (Luke
22:27-30). Those who are involved
in a selection process should have
sufficient screening means avail-
able to sort out those who are inca-
pable of relating to people, those
who exploit relationships, those
who seek to receive comfort from
their work rather than produce it
for others, those who lack suffi-
cient stability or maturity to hold an
office, those with insufficient train-
ing, those who have problem areas


Give us this day our daily bread -


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I caught myself grumbling the
other day. I really don't remember
exactly what bothered me, and it
really didn't matter I was in a
mood for grumbling. So I grum-
bled. I looked for things to grumble
about. I dared anybody to try to
bother me with the bigger picture
of everything good that was going
on.
It was very similar to what was
happening to the Israelites when
they were in the wilderness. They
were so involved in their own situa-
tion that the grumbling began.
"Why did we ever leave Egypt? We
had it good there! Moses! It's all his
fault. He brought us out here to the
wilderness to starve. He brought us
out here to die!" Grumble. Grum-
ble. Grumble.
The thing I love about these Old
Testament stories is that even


though the settings are foreign to
our life and world today, the mes-
sage is still clear. We have our
places of wilderness, and when we
find ourselves in these places of
wilderness, we, like the Israelites,
tend to grumble and complain,'
and look for things to grumble and
complain about.
Is that where you are today? Are
you in the midst of some wilder-
ness? Are you feeling engulfed by it,
trapped by it? Are you frustrated
and looking for things to grumble
about? The wilderness is like that,
and in the midst of our wilderness
we are tempted, so very tempted,
to give up or to blame someone or
to lash out and be angry.
The term for this is "awfulizing".
It's taking a bad situation and mak-
ing it worse by imagining the worst
possible outcome. When one has
a headache and imagines that it is
the onset of a brain tumor that's
awfulizing. When one sees a tur-


ban and imagines the wearer to be
a terrorist that's awfulizing. Our
tendency is to awfulize the world
around us and, seeing it in negative
ways, start looking for things to be
negative about:
The truth is that when we look
for negative things, we will find
them. But something else also hap-
pens. In our complaining, grum-
bling, and awfulizing: God's heart
and love and promise of provision
for us is overshadowed. In the
wilderness, the Hebrew people
succumbed to this. Forgetting all
that God had done for them, they
grumbled about their current situa-
tion. So Moses talked to God on
their behalf.
And God responded, "I will
send manna fresh every morning. I
will provide." Manna in the wilder-
ness! The miraculous gift of God,
which was enough to, feed the peo-
ple! But when the morning came
and the dew left behind the flakes


which could impede ministry. Like,
many secular situations, the talents,
required to get a job are not always
those required to carry it out.
A consultant to a group of offi-]
cers who formed a committee to'
pick persons to fill their ranks:
observed that they always picked
persons like themselves. That's a'
good way to perpetuate what is
going on but not a good way to
make improvements or grow.
In reality, it takes a balance
among people involved in selec-.
tion process, including those who,
assure the professional competen-,
cies to minister, those who assure,
character development sufficient
to meet the needs of people in the;
congregations or regional min-
istries where they will serve, and
those who will be served who seek
someone capable of being a part of,"
their local Church family.
Then there is the work of God's'
Spirit and the willingness of people
to work together in spite of differ-
ences or weakness on either side.
The disciples chose someone who
had been a part of their fellowship'
"from the beginning". That's why'
rolling dice worked!


and forgive;

of heavenly bread, the Israelites
didn't recognize what it was..
Moses had to tell them, "It is the8
bread that the LORD has given you
to eat." .
How often dowe not recognize-
the gifts of God in our midst?
Maybe we think God has left us in
the wilderness to die. But maybe"
God is feeding us and we don't'
realize it. Maybe the lesson we can
learn from this story of the bread!
from heaven that falls in the wilder-'
ness of our lives is that we have a
God who cares about our anxieties
and our fears, and knows our]i
needs. Maybe it's a challenge for us I
to walk with a kind of radical and
dangerous faith that puts trust in J
God for all things. Maybe it's a call
to remember that when we hit-
those wilderness 'times in our lives
to be more proactive than reactive,"
remembering that when we pray,
"Give us this day our daily bread,"
God gives it!

No problemwithhospital
Dear editor:
I recently spent eight days in the
Hendry Regional Medical Center
while I was treated for pneumonia,
which has serious implications for
someone my age. This was fol-
lowed by several trips to the outpa-
tient center for additional treatment
and x-rays. I would like to com-
mend the hospital and it's staff for
the excellent treatment I received.
Everyone I had contact with were
not only very professional in carry-
ing out their duties but did all they


could to make things as comfort-
able and pleasant as possible.
In addition, the fact that most of
my family live in Hendry County
and were able to visit me at any*
time without it being a hardship on,
them, ,was a great comfort to me.


Pet Corner


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. I'm a real cat
person! There is so much conver-
sation about how many dog years
are equal to one human year. What
about for cats? Is it the same thing?
Jessica in RPB.
A: Yes! Dogs get all the hype! So
let's make this answer all about the
cats! Best way to answer this one is
to include a cool chart: This way
you can figure out a cat's age in
record time. Best Wishes Jessica
I-Doc Savvy.


throughout my hospital stay.-
The residents of this area are,
indeed fortunate to have the,
Hendry Regional Medical Center in

will aita\s be available to them..,

Watch out for the blind


There have been some ques-
tions brought to the attention of the
public, following a couple of near
misses with blind residents in the
area.
The following is a reminder as
to what the law says and is quoted
from the Florida's. Driver's Hand-
book.
"The primary traveling aids for a
person who is blind are often a
white cane or a trained guide dog.
Independent travel involves some
risk that can be greatly reduced


when you, the driver, are aware of
the use and meaning of a white
cane or guide dog.
"Drivers must always yield the
right-of-way to persons who are
blind. When a pedestrian is crossing
the street or highway guided by a
dog or carrying a white cane, vehi-
cles must come to a complete stop."
Drivers are asked to remember
that blind persons do reside in the
area and to use extreme caution
when approaching city intersec-
tions.

Most of us are familiar with
the Salvation Army and its serv-
ices,,or are at least have heard
reports on the itews when the
Salvation Army responds to dis-
asters.
Many military personnel are
grateful for the suppliers from
home, the spiritual counseling
and the emotional support dur-
ing wartime. Families who have
lost their homes due to fire or
severe weather know the Salva-
tion Army can help at the worst
times in their lives.
The average American, how-
ever, is more familiar with the
- Salvation Army Thrift Store, and
of course with Red Kettle collec-
tors during the holidays. These
help provide the funds, which


make it possible for the Salva-
tion Army to help our residents
locally who face emergency sit-
uations.
What you may not realize is,
that Clewiston has a service cen-
ter to help those whose emer-
gency makes it hard for them to
feed or cloth their children, or
who need help providing essen-
tials for living. The money col-
lected in the Red Kettles, or
donated to the Salvation Army in
Clewiston, stays right here,
except for 10-percent adminis-
trative, fees. The Salvation Army
in Clewiston has no employees,
only volunteers. The Red kettle
collectors are neighbors who
you might know from your local
bank, or Garden Club or Lyons


Hendry County Sheriff's

Office recovers stolen

vehicles at Chop Shop


CLEWISTON Hendry
County Sheriff Ronnie Lee
announced that an ongoing
investigation, which began
Feb.:26, has led to the arrest of
26-year-old Ariel Cardoso of
3600 SW 114 Avenue, in
Miami.
Hendry County Sheriff's
Office Sergeant Joe. Lee and
members of HCSO Criminal
Investigations Unit were act-
ing on information that there
were possibly stolen vehicles
at 555 N. Palm Avenue in.
Clewiston.
As the Deputies
approached the driveway they
noticed several semi-trucks,
all which were inside the,
fenced property. The deputies
were met at the locked gate
by Rolando Yanes who resides
at the 555 Palm N. Palm
Avenue address. Mr. Yanes
was advised of the criminal
investigation and signed a
consent form to search his
property.
As the Deputies began their
search, they noticed several
more individuals on the
grounds. One of these individ-
uals was Mr. Cardosowho
said he was the owner of the
white dually pick-up. Mr. Car-
doso provided a certificate of
title for a 1995 Ford truck.
Examination of the truck
revealed that the factory vehi-
cle identification number
(VIN) was missing. It was also


noticed that some of the
truck's major components
had been replaced and did not
match the year and model of
the vehicle. The vehicle was
removed from the property
for further investigation.
On, March 31, in conjunc-
tion with Officer James
Woodruff of the Miami-Dade
Police Department Auto
Task Force Sgt. Lee was
able to identify the compo-
nents/parts that were on the
seized vehicle as being from a
1992 Ford truck that was
reported stolen through the
Cape Coral Florida Police
Department Dec. 20, 2004.
The stolen truck was val-
ued at $11,000. The Investiga-
tion also revealed that other
vehicles at the 555 N. Palm
Avenue address were con-
firmed as stolen and had been
dismantled and chopped. Mr.
Cardoso was interviewed
again April 4, at which time he
stated he had been in sole
possession of the 1995 Ford
truck since Oct. 25, 2004
through Feb. 26. Based on evi-
dence of the investigation, Mr.
Cardoso was arrested and
booked into the Hendry
County Jail for grand theft.
Sheriff Lee praised the
work of the Criminal Investi-
gations Unit and the assis-
tance of the Miami-Dade Task
Force in the successful investi-
gation.


Firefighter license plate hottest seller in 2004


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
i Salutes Firefighters specialty
license plate was the hottest sell-
ing new plate in 2004.
In a celebration in the Capitol
Courtyard, it was announced that
its 10,000th license plate was
j sold and its $200,000 in proceeds
will benefit charities throughout
the state. The tag, depicting a
firefighter with a patriotic back-
ground, was sponsored by the
Florida Professional Firefighters'.'"
The plate, which welitonisale
throughout Florida last June, was


ranked 38th out of a field of 91
specialty plates in 2004, accord-
ing to the Department of High-
way Safety & Motor Vehicles.
The idea for the specialty tag
came from Palm Beach County
Fire Rescue's Lt. Armand Nault,.
shortlyafter the Sept. 11th terror-
ist act. With the outpouring of
community support, he thought
a specialty plate would give the
public an opportunity to show
their support 365 days a year and
help local charities at the same
time .. .


"The money raised from the
sale of each plate will be collect-
ed by the Florida Firefighter Char-
ities and will be distributed back
to eligible, local charities chosen
by the firefighters where the
plate was sold," said Mr. Nault.
The plate is available to the
general public for an additional
$20 plus a $2 processing fee
required by the state.
"Florida has specialty plates
for many worthy causes,, from
child abuse prevention to wildlife
conservation," said CFO/Fire


Marshal Tom Gallagher. "This
new tag is a wonderful way to
show the men and .women of
fire-rescue here in Florida and
throughout the nation that we
appreciate their heroic service to
our communities."
The FPF has over 19,000
members' including firefighters,
emergency medical personnel
and the state's forestry workers.
Last year, the FPF ranked second
among the 50 states for their
$1.2-million contribution to
MDA, just one of the charities
that firefighters support.
Bob Carver, president of the
FPF said, "The statewide license
plate was designed so citizens
can be proud to show their sup-
port and salute Florida's firefight-
ers."

UF: Double trouble as new termite discovered


By ChuckWoods
I FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -
Another highly destructive termite
- a close relative of the Formosan
,'super termite" that's gnawing its
Way across many Southern states'
- has become established in
iouth Florida, according to Univer-
sity of Florida researchers.
"The Asian subterranean ter-
mite, a major pest in tropical areas
such as Brazil and the West Indies,:
was not considered to be a serious
threat to Florida until now," said
Nan-Yao Su, a professor of ento-
mology with UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences, or
UF/IFAS. "I thought it could not sur-
vive north of the tropics, and I am
puzzled by its rapid spread in South
Florida."
The pest (Coptotermes gestroi)-
was found in Key West and Miami'
a few years ago, and now UF
researchers have discovered a
Well-established population in Riv-
iera Beach, more than 70 miles
porth of Miami. The researchers
Say they're not sure how much far-
ther north the tropical species can
move and survive.
"Four buildings in a one-square-
mile area of Riviera Beach are
infested with the termite, and we
believe there may be more infesta-
tions in the area," Su said. "We are
asking those who think they have
Seen this termite to contact us at
the UF/IFAS Fort Lauderdale
Research and Education Center."
Su is working with Rudolph
Scheffrahn, a professor of entomol-
ogy at the center, and Brian Cabr-
era, an assistant professor of ento-
mology, to track and stop the
invasive pest.
: Su said South Florida is the only
place on Earth where the new


Asian termite and the Formosan
termite (C. formosanus) share the
same territory. The new termite is
considered to be the most destruc-
tive pest in many countries of the
tropics areas between the Trop-
ics of Cancer and Capricorn.
To identify possible infestations
of the pest, Su said residents should
look for winged, termites flying
around lights at dusk and in the
evening. The head and dorsal sur-
face of the body are dark brown in
contrast to its yellow-brown under-
side, thereby giving. the flying
insects a "two-toned" appearance.
Termite "soldiers" are character-
ized by their teardrop shaped
heads and the presence of a pore
that secretes a sticky, milk-like fluid.
When in doubt, homeowners
should contact a professional pest
control operator and have a thor-
ough inspection of their property.
For more information on the new
termite, visit UF's "Featured Crea-
ture" and "Pest Alert" Web sites.
http://creatures.ifas.ufl.edu/urban/t
ermites/havilandi.htm and
http://creatures.ifas.ufl.edu/urban/t
ermites/formosantermite.htm.
Meanwhile, as UF researchers
and pest control 'officials try to get
an accurate estimate of the new
termite's range in South Florida,
the Formosan termite continues to,
.spread its destruction across Flori-
da and much of the Southeastern
United States.
First identified by UF/IFAS
researchers in Miami-Dade and
Broward counties in the 1980s, the
Formosan termite is now well
established along the southeastern
coast of Florida. Infestations have
been found in 14 other Florida
counties: Citrus, Collier, Duval,
Escambia, Hillsborough, Lee,
Leon, Marion, Martin, Orange,
Pasco, Palm Beach, Putnam and


Volusia.
Fortunately, Su developed a
new baiting system that controls
the Formosan and other subter-
ranean termites, including the new
Asian termite. His bait system has a
chemical called noviflumuron, a
growth regulatorthat prevents ter-
mites from molting, thereby reduc-
ing the ability of the worker popu-



lation to sustain underground
colonies. The chemical has a low
toxicity to humans and the envi-
ronment. Less than one gram kills
an entire colony containing mil-
lions of termites.
The control is marketed world-
wide as the S'ien ,ii r I'ieri f -rii
Colony Elimination System by
DowAgroSciences.

that the Clewiston liger tennis
squad netted a clean sweep over
the Cowboys from LaBelle, and
despite this week's match up
being a little closer, the Tigers
served up their fourth victory of
the season.
Josh Ingram, sitting at the
number one seed for the Tigers,
put Clewiston on the right track
with a 3-6, 6-1, 6-1 victory, but the
Cowboys knotted the match up
with a closely contested victory at

emerged from a first set battle (7-
5) to take control of the number
three seed contest and took the
second set without much struggle
with a 6-0 score. Raymond Guerra
put the Tigers in position of clos-
ing out the match with wins of 6-2
and 6-4 at the number four seed.
Guerra's victory gave the Tigers
their third win on the day, one
short of closing out the team victo-

Morton and Guerra teamed up

The victory gives the Tigers

more matches to accomplish that,
but will also be sending their play-
ers into the Tiger Slam Tennis

BELLE. GLADE The third
annual Chihuahua relay race drew
35 dogs and hundreds of people to
the Black Gold Jubilee held at the
Belle Glade Marina over the week-
end.
Held by Doctor Noelle Saved-
off, a Belle Glade veterinarian, the
event has grown steadily over the
last three years.
"We had 35 dogs enter the
race," said Dr. Savedoff. "The first
year we had about 20 and people
really seem to like it. We had close
to 30 dogs register early and had
dozens of last minute calls from
people who wanted to get
involved."

further and further out of town."
Annexation of outlying lands is
a possible solution, but Mrs. Smith
said the county and the city could
work together for the. same pur-
pose and that even though infra-
structure needs would be expen-
sive, she supports impact fees for
that very reason.
"I think impact fees are a good
idea," she said. "It retards explosive
growth, but it puts in perspective to
help those who are existing, so we
don't bear the load for all new
development. It will help our
schools, our hospital, and our city


infrastructure. Impact fees will help
pay for all of that and at the same
time slow development down just
a little bit."
The city of Clewiston is more
than aware of the real estate situa-
tion, according to City Manager
Wendell Johnson. Mr. Johnson said
the city is looking several different
options at how to bring affordable
housing back into the city.
"Annexation is something we
are looking at, but of course, it is a
volunteer process," he said. "We
have been in discussions with pri-
vate landowners out of the west
end of town. We are looking at lay-
ing the foundation for annexation
in the future with conditions of our
sewer plant expansion and how


successful it will be in providing
those kinds of services to outlying
areas."
Mr. Johnson said annexation as
a primary solution may be prema-
ture in relying on that as a short-
term solution, but said the city has
two other scenarios in which short-
term solutions may be more
viable.
"One is that the city is working
with developers in encouraging
them to provide affordable hous-
ing," he said. "We talk to all devel-
opers who come forth with an
interest in developing within the
city and we encourage them to
lean towards affordable housing,
but it's complex because ultimate-
ly, it's up to them. Affordable hous-


ing in Clewiston, like everywhere
else, is a major problem and
there's only so much the city can
do."
Mr. Johnson said holding dis-
cussions with potential developers
is one of those things, but the city
has also started, a Community
Redevelopment Area (CRA),
which is in its infancy, that will tar-
get certain areas of the city for rede-
velopment, with affordable hous-
ing in mind.
"CRA was just established a few
weeks ago to look at older areas of
town," he said. "Primarily we are
looking at the southeast end of
town where the city can in-fill or
redevelop some older homes,
again with affordable housing in


mind. So, we are trying to do things
to a point ofwhatwe can do."
The city is looking at as many
short-term possibilities as they can
do as a government entity, while
keeping in mind the costs of


expanding infrastructure. It is
hopeful that by the time the city
can enact some long-term solu-
tions, such as annexation, the real
estate boom will have, at least lev-
eled off to reasonable levels.

"We want to help older citizens

Faith in Action volunteers from
the already established LaBelle
area related stories of success, but
the one common theme among
Faith in Action volunteers is that
they all eventually say the same
thing: "I think I get more out of this
than the person I'm working with."
The rewards of sacrificing a little
time each week, while helping to
change the life of another human
being are well worth the effort.

from all walks of life, all religions,

have a common goal and that is to
make a difference and Faith in

goal.

Volunteers can take on simple
roles as making a friendly visit, a

Investors warned about financial scams


TALLAHASSEE Florida's
Chief Financial Officer Tom Gal-
lagher recently released a list of
Florida's top 10 scams used to
cheat investors out of hundreds
of millions of dollars. Gallagher
said that while his department is
always on the lookout for
crooks peddling bogus invest-
ments, the best defense against
these characteYs often is a vigi-
lant citizenry.
"The calls we get from
Floridians to check out an
investment or the person selling
it often lead us to unregistered
investments and unlicensed
salesman and brokers," said Mr.
Gallagher. "When the public
calls us to verify a deal, they not
only protect themselves, they
might also protect others by tip-
ping off our investigators."
The top 10 threats to Florida
investors for 2005 are:
. 1. Ponzi Schemes: The prem-
ise is simple: Pay early investors
with money raised from later
investors. The only people who
make money are the promoters
who set the Ponzi in motion. On
July 30, 2004, Charles William
Cox, of Ft. Myers, and Charles D.
Gregory Jr., of Pensacola, were
sentenced for running the
schemes "European Marketing
Group", "Mammoth Capital"
and "Skyward 'Enterprises."
Investor's money was laun-
dered through various U.S. and
offshore businesses and bank
accounts and thennmisapoiropri-
ated by the defendants. Cox was
sentenced to 48 months and
Gregory was sentenced to 23
months in prison. They agreed
to pay over $2.7 million in resti-
tution.
2. Unlicensed Individuals
Selling Securities: Anyone sell-
ing securities without a valid
securities license should be a
red alert for investors. Call (800)
342-2762 or go to


www.fldfs.com to Verify Before
You Buy.
3. Unregistered Investment
Products: Con artists bypass
stringent .state registration
requirements to pitch viatical
settlements, pay telephone and
ATM leasing contracts, and
other investment contracts with
the promise of "limited or no
risk" and high returns. James
Dent, of Plantation, Fla, was
sentenced in April of 2004 for
the sale of unregistered securi-
ties. Dent is serving eight years
probation and was ordered to
pay $290,000 in restitution.
4. Promissory Notes: Empty
promises can leave these notes
worth less than the paper they
are printed on. On Feb. 23,
2004, Alfred Michael Jaillette, of
Altamonte Springs, president of
World Vision Entertainment,
was sentenced to 51 months'
incarceration and ordered to
pay restitution of $18,973,279
for the sale of guaranteed prom-
issory notes which were backed
by a shell company with no
assets.
5. Senior Investment Fraud:
Because-of their access to a life-
time of savings, seniors contin-
.ue to face investment fraud by
con artists peddling unsecured
promissory notes, and other
investments that are either
fraudulent or unsuitable for
them. On Aug. 12, 2004, Philip
Mehl, age 65, of Stuart, was sen-
tenced to 20 years and ordered
to pay restitution for running
workshops and advertisements
that offered 10-percent returns
on investments that were guar-
anteed against loss. The scam
sold over $20 million of these
bogus securities..
Last year lawmakers passed
the Senior Annuity Suitability
law, which was proposed by
Gallagher. It requires annuities
to be compatible with the needs


of the person purchasing it.
6. High-Yield Investment
Schemes: Con artists lure
investors with promises of
triple-digit returns through
access to "risk-free guaranteed
high-yield instruments" or
something equally deceptive.
7. Internet Fraud: Stock pro-
moters are using online "boiler
rooms," instant messaging, and
fake Web sites to lure investors
into "pump-and-dump" stock
schemes.
8. Affinity Fraud: Con artists
are increasingly targeting reli-
gious, ethnic, cultural, and pro-
fessional groups. The Miami
Herald recently reported on a
Miami Beach couple who was
told about an investment by a
neighbor who attended the
same church. Their $25,000 was
stolen along with $180 million
that a bogus company
scammed through churches
across Florida.
9. Variable Annuity Sales
Practices: Senior investors
should beware of the high sur-
render fees and steep sales
commissions agents often earn
when they move investors into
variable annuities.
10. Viatical Settlement Agree-
ments: Many Floridians have
been the victims of viatical
investment companies that
promise very high returns with
very low risk. Gallagher has
been fighting to have lawmak-
ers pass a bill to regulate viatical
investments as securities, but
many in the industry are trying
to block this oversight.
The legislation, House Bill
1437 by Rep. Dudley Goodlette
and Senate Bill 2412 by Sen.
Rudy Garcia, would require
investments in viatical settle-
ments to be regulated as "secu-
rities". For investors, this would
mean access to company infor-
mation, any promises made to


investors would have to be doc-
umented and approved by state
regulators, and a determination
of the investment's suitability
would have to be considered,
including the purchaser's finan-
cial and tax status, and the pur-
chaser's investment objectives.
The legislation would also
require the broker and sales
agent selling viaticals to be
licensed.
Viatical providers, like Mutu-
al Benefits and Lifetime Capital,_
buy life insurance policies for
less than the face value and
resell them to investors who
seek to make money upon the
insured's death. By selling a pol-
icy for a percentage of its face
value, the insured can get cash .
now for medical, living or other
expenses. The tradeoff is giving
up a bigger payoff at death for
one's beneficiaries.
Before making any invest-
ment, Gallagher urged investors
to ask the following questions:
Are the seller and investment
properly licensed and regis-
tered?
Has the seller given you writ-
ten information, that fully
explains the investment?
Are claims made for the
investment realistic?
Does the investment meet
your personal investment goals?
Mr. Gallagher also urged
investors to contact the Depart-
ment of Financial Services with
any questions about an invest-
ment product, broker or adviser
before making an investment.
Please Verify Before You Buy.

Department of Financial Ser-
vices at (800) 342-2762 or go to

WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S.
Sen. Bill Nelson said he's with-
drawing his opposition to the
president's pick to lead the
Environmental Protection
Agency, following the nomi-
nee's decision to cancel a highly
controversial g:'.-rirnent pro-
gram ,to test pesicides'. on

testimony to cancel the pro-
*gram that would pay Jack-
sonville families for allowing
young children to be exposed to
pesticides in exchange for cash.
payments, a T-shirt and a calen-
dar. The program was contro-'
versial not only because it,
involved exposing babies to
pesticides, but also because it
was funded in part by the chem--
ical industry.
"I'm glad. I'm happy. EPA
came to its senses," ,Senator
Nelson said Friday, when
informed of Johnson's change
of heart about canceling the so-
called Children's Health Envi-
ronmental 'Exposure Research
Study. Nelson spoke by phone
with Johnson Friday about 3:45
p.m.
Johnson told Nelson the pro-
gram was "dead" and said the
EPA would return the American
Chemical Council's $2.1 million
contribution intended to partial-
ly fund it. A 24-year. veteran
employee of EPA, Johnson
recently was nominated by
President Bush to become the
agency's, head. He has to be
confirmed by the Senate, which
likely would not have held a
hearing because of Nelson's
expressed opposition.
Statement by Stephen L.
Johnson, Acting Administrator
of the Environmental Protection


Agency, canceling research
study:
(Washington, D.C.-April 8,
2005) "On April 8, 2005, I can-
celled the Children's Health
Environmental Exposure
'Research Study.
"The Children's Health Envi-
lonrnental Exposure Research
Study was designed to fill criti-
cal data gaps in our understand-
ing ol how children may be
exposed to pesticides (such as
bug spray) and chemicals cur-
rently used in households.
Information from the study was
intended to help EPA better pro-
tect children. EPA will continue
-to pursue the goal of protecting
children's health. .
"Last fall, in light of ques-
tions about the study design, I
directed that all work on the
study stop immediately and
requested an independent
review. Since that time, many
misrepresentations about the
study have been made. EPA sen-
ior scientists have briefed me on
the impact these misrepresenta-
tions have had on the ability to
proceed with the study.
"I have concluded that the
study cannot go forward,
regardless of the outcome of the
independent review. EPA must
conduct quality, credible
research in an atmosphere
absent of gross misrepresenta-
tion and controversy.
"As a scientist and a 24-year
employee of the EPA, I have a
deep passion for the Agency's
mission to protect human
health and the environment.
Continual review and reassess-
ment is a fundamental aspect of
scientific ,progress, and I am
committed, to ensuring that
EPA's research is based on
sound science with the highest
ethical standards."

Five Tips to Improve Your Home's Value
Are you among the thousands of people
who are thinking about improving their cur-
rent home or buying a "fixer-upper" home?
Before you start spending money doing
either, here are five things you should know.
1. Lifestyle improvements to a kitchen or
bathroom always increase the value of a
home, so they are your best investment.
Other areas to consider include the master
bedroom, media rooms and "outdoor
rooms."
2. Maintenance improvements are neces-
sary, but don't expect the value of your home
to go up as a result. Exterior paint jobs may
help increase the "curb appeal" of your
home, but since maintenance is a necessary
part of home ownership, don't expect a
$5,000 paint job to translate into $5,000 more
in home equity. But do note that failing to
maintain your property adequately will
decrease its value by whatever it will cost to
repair the damage or implement necessary
maintenance procedures. Think of home
maintenance improvements as a way of pro-
tecting your home's value from going down.
3. Cosmetic improvements neutrally effect
a home's value. Jobs like stripping wallpaper
or painting are cosmetic improvements that
most homeowners can do themselves, mak-
ing the perception of their value seem less.
Therefore, it makes more sense to do most
cosmetic work yourself instead of paying
someone else to do it.
4. Be aware of over-improving voir home.
especially if you plan to sell it within 2 to 5
years. Before you.commit r.'. 1 i'; f,....:. r.
such as installing a three-car garage or an in-
ground pool, cheek-to. :,: itr '. I'" char-
acter for your neighborhood. If your house is
improved way beyond others in the neigh-
borhood, you may have inadvertently placed
it on the "odd" list, making it highly unlikely
to increase its market value when it comes*
time to sell.
5. Keep up with home values in your neigh-
borhood. Realtors use home. sales informa-
tion on comparable sales (comps) to put a
value on a home. The best way to assess the
value of yours is to look at home sales of
properties that are similar to yours in your
area. For example, if you know that 15 Hedge
Lane is comparable to yours and it sold for
$325,000 with a new kitchen, you can get an
idea of what the value of your home would be
with a new kitchen. Comps give you the most
accurate picture of what-your home is worth.

FDEP conducts water quality project as test model


BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. The
Bonita Bay Group is partnering
with the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection to par-
ticipate in four projects, each
designed to measure the effects
of various practices on water
quality. The projects may be used
as case studies in the FDEP man-
ual that define best management
practices and provide examples
of low-impact development
(LID) techniques. LID incorpo-
rates development in harmony
with a site's existing natural fea-
tures while employing pollution
prevention measures.
"The ultimate goal is to use
this information to create a sin-
gle, statewide storm-water treat-
ment rule," said Eric Livingston,
bureau chief of the FDEP's
Watershed Management Pro-
gram.
Shadow Wood Preserve, The
Brooks and Bonita Bay, all mas-
ter-planned communities being
developed by The Bonita Bay
Group, were chosen as project
sites.
Livingston and Kim Fikoski,
senior environmental manager
for The Bonita Bay Group,
designed the experimental proj-
ects to illustrate methods devel-
opers can use to improve and


preserve the quality of natural
waterways, lakes and under-
ground water supplies by reduc-
ing the contaminants carried by
storm-water runoff.
Two projects are under way at
Shadow Wood Preserve, the 440-
acre community in South Lee
County.
1. A rooftop garden some-
times referred to as an eco-roof
or green roof is growing atop
the maintenance storage build-
ing. The experimental garden,'
with a total of 2,400-square feet,
is the first green roof without irri-
gation in southwest Florida. The
purpose is to determine which
plant materials grow best in this
environment and the garden's
effect on the volume and quality
of storm-water runoff. According
to Livingston, the green roof is
the first in Florida.
2. Pervious (porous) paving
materials are being compared to
standard asphalt in a select park-
ing area within the community.
The porous materials allow rain-
water to seep through instead of
running off too. quickly. The
objective of this study is already
being met to demonstrate that
the volume of runoff can be sig-
nificantly reduced, and can be fil-
tered in a natural way, meaning a
higher quality water will make its


way to southwest Florida's reten-
tion ponds and natural water-
ways.
At The Brooks, the 2,532-acre
community in Bonita Springs,
one project is currently under
way:
Lake aeration, which prevents
deterioration of retention ponds,
has historically been used when
the water depth is greater than 12
feet. This project is evaluating
whether the principle applies to
ponds in Southwest Florida.
Bonita Bay, The Bonita Bay
Group's 2,400-acre flagship com-
munity in Bonita-Springs, was
chosen for the fourth project:
The water quality of a large
water-retention pond that has a
minimal littoral zone was tested.
Littoral zones are the marshy
areas that surround lakes and the
shallow waters of the lake
perimeters. Natural plants, such
as marsh.grasses, act as filters .to
remove contaminants as runoff
makes its way into lakes and
waterways. In this study, littoral
plants will be installed this
spring, and the water quality of
the pond will be monitored to
measure the plants' effective-
ness. The plantings also provide
additional food sources and shel-
ter for marsh and wading birds.
"In order to do the studies, we


needed a company that was will-
ing to partner with the agency,
and that is not easy to find," said
Livingston. "It's very unusual for
a company to volunteer for proj-
ects like this and to want to work
closely with regulatory agencies.
One of the great things about The
Bonita Bay Group is their com-
mitment to environmental inno-
vation, environmental quality
and their investment in studies
and projects like these."
"The Bonita Bay Group has
been a leader in environmental
responsibility and sustainable
development," said Fikoski.
"Declining water quality in our
natural waterways is a critical
issue in Southwest Florida. We
also partner with other agencies
in drafting solutions and then
implementing them. Collaborat-
ing with the FDEP is a natural
complement to that work."
Fort Myers-based Johnson
Engineering is participating in
the studies and collecting the
data being used in the evalua-
tions.
For information about FDEP's
efforts, visit their Web site at
www.dep.state.fl.us/water/water
sheds/index.htm.
The Bonita Bay Group is a-
diversified company involved in
the planning, development, sales


and management of master-
.planned communities and free-
standing recreational facilities
throughout southwest Florida.
The company employs more
than 1,500 individuals and is
developing seven maste'r-
planned communities Bonita


Bay, The Brooks, Shadow Wood
Preserve, Mediterra, The Estates
at TwinEagles, Verandah and
Sandoval along with 12 golf
courses and two marinas. Addi-
tional information about the
company is available at

TALLAHASSEE Florida's
Chief Financial Officer Tom Gal-
lagher has alerted Floridians who
are still waiting to have their roofs
replaced and repaired that costs
for replacing temporary blue
tarps are reimbursable by their
insurance company.
Because of the widespread
damage caused by the four hurri-
canes that crossed the state last
year, Florida is now facing a
shortage of available contractors
to repair all of the property dam-
age caused by the storms.
"As we enter the spring season
in Florida, we are seeing the sun
get stronger and the heavy rains
are starting," said Mr. Gallagher.
"Many of our neighbors, unfortu-
nately, have had these tarps, on
their roofs for over six months,
and the tarps may be getting
worn or loose and will provide
less protection from UV rays or
water. While we want storm vic-
tims to get a real roof over their
heads as soon as possible, we at
least want the tarps they have-to
be in good shape while they
wait."
Mr. Gallagher said homeown-

Regional and

ers' policies approved in Florida
require insurance companies to
pay reasonable costs incurred by
homeowners for necessary
measures to protect covered
property from further damage,


including purchasing and
installing the tarps. Gallagher
added that homeowners should
not risk injury trying to replace
the tarps because materials and
labor costs are reimbursable.
