Child IDs can prevent tragedy


By Mark Young
In an ongoing effort to bring the
spotlight to April's Child
Abuse/Neglect prevention month,
parents can take steps.to help pre-
vent possible tragedy from occur-
ring.
Florida has been hit with an
epidemic as of late, with several
child abductions, which have ulti-
mately ended in tragedy. While the
state must contend with a growing
number of incidents relating
directly to known sex offenders,


the number of children who are
abducted daily across this country
is staggering. More than 766,000
children disappear every year in
America.
The Amber Alert system has
been an effective tool in combat-
ing child abductions and is directly
responsible for saving the lives of
childreri, but this system only
works when parents are aware of
where their children are and what
they are wearing.
A solid description and the


availability of a current data base is
a sad necessity of modern times,
but is a valuable tool for law
enforcement authorities to act
quickly when a child has been
taken.
The identification program is
one step a parent can take in help-
ing to prevent a possible tragedy
and could be the difference
between the rescue of their child
or having to face the unbearable
facts of an alternate outcome.

Sweet sugar: Sugar Festival draws thousands


Slalf proios.Mark Young
Two young sisters show a proud mom how
much they care for one another by taking
each other's hands during this past week-
end's Sugar Festival, in Clewiston.


Not quite old enough for her first horse,
this little cowgirl is plenty comfortable
riding mpm's shoulder.


These young dancers drew quite a crowd of
supporters, as entertainment was non-stop
throughout Saturday's Sugar Festival,
which drew thousands to the festivities.


This young leopard drew the attention of
many curious people, both young and old,
as part of several areas of interest among
the walkways of the Sugar Festival.


Clewiston Sugar Festival attendees were
treated to some top-notch local and
national entertainment April 16. Mixing it
up on stage, as one of the primary head-
liners was Sugarland, climbing national
record charts with the 'current number
two single, "Baby Girl". Country super-
stars Restless Heart closed out the
night's entertainment.

Ask any parent the whole
world resides inside their child.
There is no fear like the fear of
losing a child, and no joy like the
return of one you thought was
lost.
Little Taylor Martin is a bright-
eyed, very busy little girl. There is,.
after all, so much for a curious

A sweet time at


the sweet taste


By Mark Young
Dreams of chocolate moun-
tains topped with whipped
cream snow, with rivers of multi-
colored candies flowing into the
soft, creamy valley below filled at
least one judge's head the night
before the Sweet Taste of Sugar
contest.
And when that judge entered
the Sugar and Spice Room, Satur-
day, April 16, he saw tables of
cakes, pies, breads, cookies,
'brownies, and more that put his
childhood fantasy of visiting
Willie Wonka's Chocolate Facto-
ry to shame.
Cakes almost a foot high, pies
as soft as clouds, cinnamon buns
dripping with caramel, and so
many tantalizing tastes laid out
before him, tempting him into
sweet, sugary desire.
This particular judge along
with Hendry County Commis-
sioner Janet Taylor, Palm Beach


Post columnist L.J. Margolis and
Karl Larsen had their work cut
out for them as close to 59 entries
were submitted into this year's
annual Sweet Taste of Sugar con-
test.
Dozens of samples were
placed before them and each
judge had their hands, and
mouths, full with more than two
hours of solid tasting. Sure, it's a
dirty job, but someone had to do
it.
It didn't take long before the
judges became giddy with the
kind of sugar high only known to
a child the day after Halloween.
Smiles and laughter became the
,highlight of the judging, but oh,
that sugar crash can be rough.
Thirty samples into the con-
test and the sugar began to take
its toll, but still the judges worked,
taking their civic duty seriously,

INI brings Ideybis Gonzalez aboard


The Clewiston News, Belle
Glade Sun and Glades County
Democrat welcome News Clerk
Ideybis Gonzalez. A recent addi-
tion to the staff of the three news-
papers, Ms. Gonzalez looks for-
ward to her new assignment.
Ms Gonzalez, mother of three
and a resident of the Clewiston
area for three years now, says she
is primed and ready to serve the
community through a series of
upcoming articles and feature
stories that are poised to high-
light her writing talents.
Though she is a newcomer to
the newspaper industry, Ms.
Gonzalez has nevertheless con-
stantly turned to writing as a way
of expressing herself and lists
writing poetry as one of her
favorite hobbies.
Cuban-born, and raised in


Miami, Ms.
Gonzalez is
enjoying her
new home in
Clewiston and
talks of the city -
almost as '
much as of the "
people who
live in it.
"Clewiston is a Ideybis
small commu- Gonzalez
nity where
everybody is
really friendly," she says. "It's a
good place to raise a family."
Before coming to work for
Independent Newspapers, Ms.
Gonzalez worked at Southern
Gardens and Sugar Realty.
Since coming to work for the
.newspaper in mid-March, she
has been praised for the work


she has done. "Of all the appli-
cants, she was the only one we
recognized something special in
that could, develop into a real
asset," said News Editor Mark
Young.
Ms. Gonzalez is quite happy
with her new job and hopes to
continue serving in her position,
and through good work advance
her career in the future. Her goal
is to become a full-time reporter.
"I see myself here for many
years to come," said Ideybis,
who was also quick to point to
her desire to serve her communi-
ty. I like working with peo-
ple. I like to help people, to show
them that we care about them."
If she continues the work she
has been doing, it seems Ms.
Gonzalez's aspirations just might
become.reality.

Do children need vitamin supplements? r

Some children are particularly
"picky" eaters or go through phas-
es in which they would exist on a
diet of macaroni and cheese and
French fries unless coerced,
threatened or bribed to eat other
foods.
In general, most nutritionists
and doctors advise parents to offer
a variety of good foods at each
meal. The best way for the body to
absorb vitamins and nutrients is
from foods. A balanced, varied
diet, with lean meat, dairy foods
such as milk and cheese and at
least five servings of fruits and veg-
etables a day (nine servings is rec-
ommended) should provide all of
.the nutrients a child needs. For
older children and adults, a "serv-

nutritionist I interviewed suggest-

For a two-year-old, two table-
spoons of a vegetable is a "serv-

tablespoons is an appropriate
serving size.
For some children, pediatri-

who are not ready to swallow vita-

Taking too many vitamins can be
dangerous. Vitamin overdose can
cause stomachache, headaches,
diarrhea, nausea and cramps.
Parents should always consult
the child's pediatrician before giv-
ing the child any nutritional sup-
plements.
If you do give vitamin supple-
ments, don't skimp on quality.
Consult the doctor about what
type of vitamins are best for your
child. Remember that chewable
vitamins have expiration dates and
can degrade if exposed to heat.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise plan, consult
your doctor. This is especially
important if you are on prescrip-
.tion medications. Some drugs
interact .badly with foods that
would otherwise be considered
"healthy".

Too much.Belle Glade news
I'm calling about the Clewiston News. Yesterday I bought the
Sun in Belle Glade and today I bought the Clewiston News, but it
only has the news from what was in the Belle Glade paper. What I
want to know is what happened to Harlem Highlights and the
Clewiston police blotto. I've noticed a trend the last month or two
that you have not printed any information about that. So, can you
please put that back in our paper?
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. Unfortunately a blaring mis-
take was made two weeks ago where the Sun and the Clewiston
News opinion pages were duplicated. Thus, Clewiston received
an eyeful of what occurs in the Glades. area. Occasionally, the
secret gets out that there are actual mere mortals behind the
scenes of your community papers and thus, mistakes are made.
We apologize for the inconvenience and will certainly trby to con-
tinue to provide what Clewiston readers want to read.
Help!
We the "715 mhp residents" especially the elderly, need some-
one to help us about our mailboxes, the kids have torn and are
still tearing up the mailboxes. We the elderly live on fixed incomes
and can't afford to rent boxes at the post office, plus if some of us
could, we don't have transportation to get the mail from post
office, some of us have called the sheriff's office to report it, when
the deputy comes, they're gone or they see the car and run. Please
someone help us! Thankyou, "715 mhp residents".


A Bible in the jury room: A Religious or judicial error?


The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church
The news first came out to me
on the "streamers" at the bottom
of our TV screen, telling me that a
death sentence in Colorado had
been overturned because some-
one brought a Bible into the jury
room.
One of the jurors carried her
Bible into the deliberations and
the Supreme Court of Colorado
felt that was sufficient reason to
overturn a death sentence and
commute it to life imprisonment,
Later, in another television
account, the prosecutor on the
case said it certainly was a "slam-
dunk" murder case and the death
penalty was warranted.
I recalled being subpoenaed
for jury duty once. The subpoena
told me that "jury duty was an
honor" but it was the first honor I
ever received that required me to
be subpoenaed to have it
bestowed. I wasn't to bring any-
thing into my decision other than
the evidence given in the court.
My reply was "I will try". In reality,


I was supposed to be a peer of the
man being tried. I apparently was
supposed to bring my "peerage"
into the jury room when it came
time to deliberate, but it was a
robbery case and I had no experi-
ence in being a robber.
Still, I bought a body of knowl-
edge with me. In the case of the
overturning of a death sentence a
woman brought her Bible. In my
case, my Biblical knowledge and
the bearing it would have on my
decision was in my mental reper-
toire and engrained in my Psyche.
As I heard of the case, I won-
dered if a Bible was used to swear
in witnesses in the murder case. If
so, wouldn't it be part of the
materials presented at the trial?
They would have to be rejected
from jury duty, too! I have a cross
that I keep in my pocket at times.
Might that render me suspect if I
looked at it during deliberations?
The woman chose to read an
Old Testament passage: "An eye
for an eye and a tooth for a tooth."
Unfortunately she didn't have it
memorized or, more likely, was
trying to make her point more
emphatic. Out came the Bible


and it lead to "an eye not being for
an eye" in the case of the slam-
dunk murder. I would have
referred her to other passages that
would be better for guidance
when making judgments, espe-
cially life-and-death ones.
The New Testament has
another slant on "eye for an eye",
for example Romans that coun-
sels "You, therefore have no
excuse, you who pass judgment
on someone, for whatever point
you judge the other, you are con-
demning yourself because you
who pass judgment do the same
things (Romans 2:1).
The passage goes on to point
out that if humans work in such a
fashion, we should be aware that
God could work that way too, but
He doesn't. Paul's reflection of the
parable about the mote and the
beam (se Luke 6:40 off which
begins "Do not judge, and you
will not be judged.") should help
us shift from "How should I pun-
ish, to "How can I help in this situ-
ation?" In fact, that is what the
Bible is about: "How can I help in
this situation?" It should help us
ask what we can do to correct a
wrong, to see that something


wrong doesn't happen again, to
help reconcile between those
who were wronged and the
wrongdoer, to guide us in work-
ing toward correction and not
revenge, to help us understand
what God would do in similar sit-
uations.
As I reflected on these things, I
wondered about the "wrong" that
had been done to someone
because his juror considered the
Bible. Certainly, the Bible has
often been quoted out of context,
and certainly has been misused
by people grinding axes and seek-
ing to twist God's word to support
their own ideas. I'd be careful,
though, before I'd reject "the
Bible" categorically as the source
of being unfair to someone who
was convicted because it was
considered in weighing a fate.
I haven't heard of a better
source of advise or found any-
thing in print that would substi-
tute redemption for condemna-
tion, healing for inflicting
suffering or understanding
instead of revenge. What if a juror
brought a book on.the law of the
jungle instead?

each of you with many more.

Community concern
Many citizens of the commu-
nity are concerned about the
crowed and usage of the Young
Men Progressive Park, located
by Harlem Gardens. Many are
complaining about, the traffic
flow on the weekends, cars liter-
ally parking in the road not
allowing the traffic to pass, etc.,
usage of alcohol, and general
disturbance (fighting, etc.). Our
parks are to be used as such for
recreation and enjoyment, not
to cause problems for others.
Parks users, lets get it together
and do the right thing.

Thought for the week
"God don't want just week-
/end visits; He wants full cus-
tody"

Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Sometimes a very simple act
can make us aware of God in the
midst of us, and that awareness
changes the situation. In a book
entitled "Living Life on Purpose,"
Greg Anderson, tells a story about
Phil, a man whose wife had recent-
ly left him. Phil was completely
depressed. He had lost faith in him-
self, in other people and in God. He
found no joy in living.
One rainy morning Phil went to
a small neighborhood restaurant
for breakfast. Although several peo-
ple were at the diner, no one was
speaking to anyone else. The only
sound was the sound of the cook
frying the eggs and bacon in the
back. The hopelessness in the
place was pervasive. Phil sat
hunched over the counter, stirring
his coffee with a spoon wondering
if life was worth living.
In one of the small booths along
the window was a young mother
with a little girl. They had just been
served their food when the little girl
broke the sad silence in the diner
by almost shouting, "Momma,
don't we say our prayers here?"
The waitress who had just
served their breakfast without a


word turned around and said,
"Sure, honey, we pray here. Will
you say the prayer for us?" The little
girl turned and looked at the rest of
the people- in the restaurant and
said, "Bowyour heads."
Surprisingly, one by one, the
heads went down. The little girl
then bowed her own head, folded
her hands, and said with the trust of
a child, "God is great, God is good,
and we thank him for our food.
Amen."
That prayer changed the entire
atmosphere as people began to
talk with one another. The waitress
said, "We should do that every
morning" and many of the regulars
nodded their heads in agreement.
Phil said, "All of a sudden, my
whole frame of mind started to
improve." What happened in the
diner? The presence of God was
suddenly recognized.
God is here! I don't care where
here is in our sanctuary, in your
office, on a street corner down-
town, in a classroom, in a doctor's
office, in an airplane 30,000 feet up.
On a battlefield in Iraq, in a board-
room in New York, in a mud hut in
Sudan or even a house in Clewis-
ton, God is here! God is here in the
nervousness of the young couple


Letters to the Editor


I s not third world to me
This is the first time I have ever
attempted to send any correspon-
dence to a newspaper. But, there
was an article in the News Press on
April 9 about Hendry County being
a. third world country, that I just
could not ignore. I am a 67-year-old
and my husband and I built a
house in Pioneer Plantation in
1992, where the author of that letter
lives. We enjoy being out here and
my family just loves coming out to
this "third world community
t every chance they get.
I must point out that we first
moved in 1962 from New York City
to Miami,,and at that time Miami
was a so called "one horse town".
We lived by the airport and we had
to go downtown to be able to go to
the movies and church. Flagler
Street was a two-lane road without
sidewalks and there were horses
just west of the airport. Yes, it was
cultural shock, but a pleasant one.
We escaped' Miami to this area
because Miami was now intolerable
with traffic, noise, etc. We knew that
this was pure country wilderness
arid a sugar-sand road was the only
access to my house until recently.
But, we accepted it as part of the
price of living in a quiet, full-of-
nature area, which included a cou-
ple of black bears traipsing through
my yard, and deer frolicking in my
pond and an occasional alligator.
And the best treasure of the area
is the people the wonderful,
friendly people who will give you a
hand when you need one, and
who wave at you when you go by
and share the potluck suppers at
the community center.
The county has limited financial
resources and no doubt tries to
accomplish what they can but, in
order to have all the full services that
the big cities have we also must pay
larger sums in taxes, which most
people are reluctant to do:.
Our population density is very
light and we have miles of farm-
land and probably big tax breaks.
So, how do we come up with more
funds for this growing area? We do
not have industry, but if there is any
talk of industry, nobody wants any
in their area.
Where can people have to work
in order to earn more than thee]
minimum. As it is, the majority of
the citizens have to work in
Broward, Palm Beach or Lee Coun-
ties or further out. These are ques-
tions we must answer. I am willing
to "sacrifice" in order for this area
to remain as close to what it is as
possible because, to me it is my

I pray that Pioneer does not

Change is in the air and we

when it comes we all will be remi-

Baby miracle
Dear editor:
On March 15, 20051 I accidental-
ly fell into our swimming pool.
When my mommy pulled me out
of the pool I was gray and had no
pulse my mommy started
screaming. Our friend and neigh-
bor Tim Weathington heard her.
He ran out back to us and started
CPR. Mr. Tim did CPR on me for
several minutes before I started
breathing. I want to say THANK
YOU Mr. Tim for breathing life back
into my body. You are truly my
HERO.Iwuvyou! ,
I know if it was not for Jesus
Christ, Mr. Tim, and my own spe-
cial guardian angel Joey Peeples
(my pepa) I would not be here
today. My doctors and nurses call
me a miracle. I have no brain,
heart, or lung damage. I also want
to thank my paramedics, flight
crew, doctors and nurses for every-
thing they did for me, and to all my
friends, family, and my pastor Don-
nie Murphy for coming to see me in
the hospital! Thank you to every-
one who called to check on me. I
am sending a big hug and kiss and
many thank yous to all of the
churches, and all the prayers for
me from friends, family and people
who did not now me. The prayer
chain worked God answered
your prayers. I am truly one of
God's special miracles.
Love, Taylor Dane Martin

You have protections
On April 14, 2005, an article
appeared in the "Speak Out" sec-
tion of the Clewiston News about a
government agency where a client
was not given appropriate privacy
and confidentiality was violated.
This should not happen and, in fact
is illegal. Unfortunately, the called
anonymous "Speak Out" does
nothing to help anyone fix the
problem. Whenever confidentiality
is violated, that person involved
needs to call, write or visit the
agency head and report the individ-
ual(s) involved so that the incident
can be investigated and remedial
action can be taken. I hope that the
person who made the complaint
will call or visit the head of the
agency involved and make a report
of the incident.

Community Profile: Don Gutshall


By Ideybis Gonzalez.
Q: What is your name?
A: Don Gutshall
Q: Where were you born?
A: I was born in 1962 in Perry,
Florida.
Q: What do you do?
A: I am the Chief of Police for the
city of Clewiston.
Q: Why do you do what you do?
A: I began doing this believing
that I can make a difference, hope-
fully I have made a difference along
the way, and along the way it
became a challenge to me, I feel
like if am the underdog, I guess is
what am trying to say. But, the odds
are actually stacked against law
enforcement.
In sports or anything else that I
do, I always cheered for the under-
dog, and I began to view myself as
that, but there's no quitting then.
And although I fear sometimes,
that am not making a difference
anymore, the drive to make a differ-
ence become stronger every time.
Q: Can you describe yourself?
A: Yes, I am easy going to a fault,
am forgiving even when I shouldn't
be sometimes. I view myself in my
official capacity as, maybe being
inside a triangle, and the citizens in
one side of the triangle, police offi-
cers in the other side and city gov-
ernment in the third side, and each
one of those sides, there's very spe-
cific requirements they .expect of
me and different things they would
like to see accomplished. I some-
how have to marry these three
together. .
Q: What scares you?
A: What scares me are the ele-

ments my children are subject to
when am not present, that's what
drives me to do what I do.
Q: what is your favorite song?
A: My favorite song is a Gospel
one, the name of it is "In Remem-
brance of Me."
Q: What irks you?
A: What irks me are the
Supreme Court justices, their abuse
of the constitution, and continued
erosion of law enforcement pow-
ers in our country, and I say that
based on the level of Supreme
Court decisions over the past 30
years, that continually eroded the
effectiveness and the ability of law
enforcement to do their job.
Q: What is the memory you
hold dear to you?
A: The memory I hold dear to
me has not changed, and that
would be the vision of my mother
through the kitchen window with
dinner on the stove, and the smell
coming out through the window
- I can still smell it. Both my moth-
er and father passed away last year.

crack burglary spree


Hendry County Sheriff Ronnie
Lee has reported that four sepa-
rate burglaries with thefts and
damages in excess of $1,500
have been solved with the arrest
of three juveniles.
The addresses, dates, and vic-
tims of the burglaries are March
24, at the residence of Francisco
Gallegos on 2036 Steamboat Cir-
cle, in Labelle, a car stereo val-
ued at $350 was stolen; late April
10 or early April 11, a pick-up
truck owned by Javier Castillo of
3101 Tulip Road, in LaBelle, was
burglarized with an assortment
of hand tools valued at $200; the
juveniles then walked tto the resi-
dence of Annette Schuetz at 3003
Tulip Road where they broke into
a storage shed, stealing a weed-
eater, fishing equipment, and
power tools valued at $450.
Their last stop of the crime-
filled night was at Earl Claxton's
residence at 3071 West Briar-
wood Circle, in LaBelle, where
they gained entry by breaking a


window in the rear of the resi-
dence. Once inside, they
attempted to remove a stereo
system from a car in the garage.
Mr. Claxton was awakened by
the noise and called the sheriff's
office. As the responding deputy
arrived, the juveniles fled the
scene after causing damages of
$500 to the home and vehicle.
The investigation of the series
of burglaries by Criminal Investi-
gations Unit Sergeant Joe Lee,
led to the three juveniles who,
after questioning by Sgt. Lee,
admitted to the burglaries and
gave explicit details of each
crime.
Through information gained
during the interviews, most of
the stolen property was recov-
ered and returned to the owners.
Each juvenile was charged with
one count of burglary of an occu-
pied dwelling,, three counts of
grand theft, and two counts of
criminal mischief and booked
into the Hendry County jail.

FWC to update imperiled species listing process


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
is gearing up to give the state's
imperiled species listing process an
upgrade..
FWC leaders say, if the pro-
posed updates are approved, Flori-
da will have the most effective, sci-
ence-based, recovery-oriented
process in the world.
"We are excited about this proj-
ect," said FWC Executive Director
Ken Haddad. "We've devoted the
past two and a half years to gather-
ing public input and fine tuning the
listing process. We believe putting
the proposed updates into action
will result in healthier and more
diverse fish and wildlife popula-
tions throughout our state."
The proposed updates build on
the current process, which the
FWC adopted in 1999, when a
well-balanced citizen panel recom-
mended implementation of a more
scientific and internationally
proven process. FWC. staff has
since reconvened that panel to
address perceived flaws in the list-
ing process. The panel created a list


of enhancements that all agreed
would strengthen any listing
process. Those enhancements
form the basis of the proposed
updates to the listing process.
One of the updates involves
incorporating the latest criteria and
guidelines developed by the Inter-
national Union for the Conserva-
tion of Nature (IUCN), which have'
the respect of the scientific com-
munityworldwide and are in use in
at least 25 countries. Since 1999,
the IUCN has further refined its
global criteria and created guide-
lines to apply them at a regional
level. FWC biologists say adopting
those changes will enhance the
agency's ability to preserve and
protect Florida's ecological diversi-
ty.
"This will give us a better meas-
uring stick," said FWC biologist
Dan Sullivan. "We'll be better
equipped to identify which species
are in danger, monitor their
progress and determine whether
the corrective actions we're taking
are working."
Sullivan said how those correc-


tive actions will be identified and
put in place is another key strength
of the proposed process. Whenev-
er the agency considers listing .or
reclassifying a species, FWC staff
will develop a management plan
tailored to that individual species'
needs. The plan will outline
species-specific protections, replac-
ing less-effective blanket prohibi-
tions of the past, whichwere tied to
the classification categories of
endangered, threatened or species
of special concern.
"This approach makes sense,
because the steps we need to take
to promote the recovery of the
manatee are vastly different from
the needs of Key Deer," Sullivan
said. "Our imperiled species listing
process, via the required manage-
ment plan, will identify those
unique needs."
"Several groups have expressed
concern about the possibility of a
species shifting from endangered
to threatened and then losing pro-
tections, but that's the beauty of the
proposed process," Haddad said.
"If a species improves and shifts


categories, its management plan
will outline the protections needed
to keep that species' recovery mov-
ing in the right direction."
The proposed updates will fur-
ther strengthen the process by
involving a biological review panel
throughout the evaluation process
and requiring an additional' peer
review of that panel's assessment.
FWC staff and select stakeholders
will also receive training.to ensure
correct application of IUCN criteria.
These layers in the listing process
will serve to ensure all species
receive the attention and protec-
tions they need.
"Our agency is charged with
managing and preserving fish and
wildlife, and this plan does that,"
Haddad said. "More importantly, it
accomplishes that goal through a
public and objective process.
Floridians have come to demand
that level of accountability and
transparency from their govern-
ment agencies."

species to learn more about the
proposed updates.

Belle Glade woman named top Scout leader


WEST PALM BEACH Sister

Glades Kids, an after-school pro-
gram in Belle Glade, was recently
recognized for another group of
children she's in charge of: Three
Girl Scout troops.
Sister Cavanaugh was named
Scout Leader of the Year by the
Arthur R..Marshall Foundation, a
non-profit West Palm Beach organ-
ization dedicated to the preserva-
tion and restoration of the Florida
Everglades.
"I'm thrilled and surprised," said
Cavanaugh, who leads Belle Glade
Girl Scout troops 719, 449 and 910.
"The Marshall Foundation is doing
some wonderful work to save the
Everglades and I'm honored to be
recognized by them."
Sister Cavanaugh received the
award March 2 at the Marshall
Foundation's Annual Anniversary
and Recognition Luncheon at the
Kravis Center in West Palm Beach.

Sister Laura Cavanaugh received her Scout Leader of the
Year award at the Kravis Center for her dedication to Glades
area scouts and her efforts to get her young scouts involved
in projects to help save the Everglades.


Also honored were Lake Worth
sculpture artist Norman Gitzen Jr.,
who was named Volunteer of the
Year, longtime Florida Department
of Environmental Protection scien-
tist Herb Zebuth, who received the


award for Conservationist of the
Year, and Boy Scout Jeff Whitney
Jr., who was the 2005 recipient of
the Marshall Foundation's Eagle
Scout Award.
Sister Cavanaugh, who is


known simply as "Sister Laura" to
the many children she serves at
Glades Kids, has participated in
Marshall Foundation events for sev-
eral years and never turns down an
opportunity to provide children
with environmental education
opportunities. Recently, a group of
Glades Kids' students planted trees
on Torry Island as part of a Marshall
Foundation project to restore a his-
toric pond apple forest.
"The kids really enjoyed it," said
Sister Laura.
Foundation Executive Director
John Marshall said he was proud to
have all four award recipients asso-
ciated with his organization.
"We are lucky to have a lot of
good people who work with us,
and these are some of the .best.
When I see how smart and dedicat-
ed our volunteers are, I know we
will succeed in saving the Ever-
glades," he said.

Belle Glade Woman's Club helps support troops


The Woman's Club of Belle
Glade has been purchasing items
that the service men in Iraq are in
need. The International Affairs Dis-
trict 10 project for all Women's
Clubs was supplying items to the
troops in Iraq.
The Woman's Club of Belle
Glade decided to join in this project
to make sure Glades service men
and women were able to receive
these packages as well. The club


collected items such as chap-
sticks, sun block, hand sanitizer,
dental floss, toothpaste, powered
kool-aid, snacks, candies, batteries,
and many other items from the
wish list provided from the military.
So far there have been 12
names of service members who
will be receiving a box full of much
needed items.
Ms. Cayson said, "As the chair of
this project, it feels rewarding to be
able to just help a couple of our


troops who are serving to protect
Us and the least that we can do is
send our service men from the
Glades a little something so that
they know we are appreciative of
what they are doing for our coun-
try". I've spoken with several
moms, dads, and friends of these
soldiers who say they are so glad
that we are sending packages to
their loved ones because they tell.
me that many servicemen don't
have anyone to send them any-


thing and it can get expensive
when you mail a box overseas. I'm
just glad that we are able to help
out in this way."
The Woman's Club of Belle
Glade would like to continue this
project and if any one in the com-
munity would like to contribute or
provide additional names to the
list, please contact Elizabeth
Cayson at (561) 996-0129.

Poster winners announced

at Eastside Elementary


The fifth grade poster contest,
sponsored by the Florida Work-
force Development Board, came to
a conclusion April 8, with the final
winners being announced.
The theme of this year's contest
was "Picture this as a Career". The
design aspect was expected to
encourage young students to con-
sider what they want to be when
they grow up' and transform their
hopes and ambitions into art.
The posters were on display
April 10-11, for the public to view
and students from Hendry and,
Glades Counties put their future
dreams on display. In all, there
were 50 submissions into the con-
test from area students and it
would be two young artists from
Eastside Elementary, in Clewiston,
who would rein in the distin-


guished honors.
Fifth-grader Grant Polhill won
Outstanding Poster. Young Polhill is
the student of Mrs. Tammy
Mitchells. Runner-up honors went
to Angela Fountain and the out-
standing classroom participation
award went to Mrs. Linda Davis'
fifth grade class.
Representing the Florida Work-
force Development Board were
Jim Way and Bernice Kertarage,
program manager, and they pre-
sented the awards to the young
artists of Eastside Elementary. Mr.
Way said that this effort would not
have been so successful without
Eastside art teacher Lori Gibson
who obviously has a knack for
inspiring her young students to
express themselves eloquently
through the forum of art.

Rescue
Continued From Page 1
live at the end of the school term
Although new, the family quickly
became part of the neighborhood
About 6 p.m., March 15, Linda, Tay
lor and Haley were all in their fron
yard, enjoying their new neighbors
Dane was still at work. The yard
was filled with kids doing what they
do best having a good time. I
was an enjoyable evening till Linda
realized that Taylor was gone. She
had been right beside her mom.
feeding-the neighbor's dog, Cocoa
only a moment earlier. So Linda
went around back to fetch her
youngest daughter.
The next thing neighbors heard
were frantic screams that brought
neighbor Tim Weathington
through the house, over a kitchen
counter and bouncing off the slid-
ing glass doors to the pool area at a
dead run. He found Linda holding a
limp, dripping Taylor. Her lips were
blue her skin was ashen and she
wasn't breathing.
A former volunteer firefighter,
Tim took the child and began CPR
at once. Tim's son, T.J., assisted
Linda who was so hysterical she
couldn't remember what to tell the
911 dispatcher. Meanwhile, Tim
continued CPR until Taylor finally
started to respond. When the water
and stomach contents started to
come up, he said he worked even
harder to keep it coming. Another
neighbor came in with a cell phone
and assisted with the.911 call.
Taylor finally began to whimper,
then cry and the EMTs arrived, tak-
ing her to meet a medivac helicop-
ter in Alva, then on to Lee Memorial
HealthPark. Tim remained calm,
packed a bag for Taylor and drove
Linda to the hospital. All the way,
Tim was on the phone, calling
Dane and answering calls from
concerned friends and family while
Lindachewed her nails and prayed.
The family's minister, Pastor Don-
nie Murphy of Lighthouse Min-
istries in Moore Haven, had already
been contacted and little Taylor
was already on prayer chains
throughout the area.
Word travels fast and some 40-
well-wishers crowded the waiting
room at the hospital by the time it
was all over. Linda remained
secluded, praying for her baby. She
knew Taylor would live, but said
her greatest fear was that her pre-
cious child had sustained brain
damage.
At the hospital, Dr. Roberto
Monge, a pediatric intensive care
physician, gave his full attention to
his small patient. When he was cer-
tain she was out of danger, he final-
ly talked to the distraught mother.
Linda said she heard little of what
he told her, only recalling the words
she had been praying to hear lit-


tfie Taylor had no brain damage.
Once she knew her daughter
was miraculously all right, the self-
recriminations began. "If only -
what if what should I have
y done?"
. Dr. Monge, a member of Health-
- Park's drowning recovery team,
t took pains to explain to Linda that
. she was not a "bad mother". Every
1 parent, at one time or another, has
y a similar experience, most often
t with no serious consequences.
a Sometimes, though, a tragedy
occurs. She should not blame her-
, self, Dr. Monge assured her. She
, had done all the right things: The
a pool was enclosed Taylor had
r been taught to stay away from the
pool. Linda tried to get Taylor into
swimming lessons, but could find
no one to take her until she turned
two. The family had been trying to
get a childproof fence installed
around the pool, but 'no one from
Fort Myers would come out to do
;thework.
"Kids are called kids because
that is what they are they are not
small adults," Dr. Monge said,
"These things happen because
children do not understand conse-
quences. No one can watch a child
100 percent of the time." .
For Tim, the hardest part of the
ordeal was calling Dane to tell him
what happened.
Looking back on the ordeal,
Linda said she thinks that Taylor fol-
lowed her little dog, Bear, around
the house and through the doggie
door into the pool enclosure. A
teacup Yorkie, Bear was barking,
trying to pull her out when Linda
found the child. He stayed right by
Taylor's side as Tim worked on her.
In the weeks since the accident,
Linda found a pool company in
Clewiston that came right out the
next day to begin putting up a child-
proof fence and Taylor will be
enrolled in swimming lessons in
June, after she turns two. Taylor's
family thanks God land wonderful
neighbors that their baby is still
with them, whole and sound. With
wide grin Linda says, "I can't keep
my hands off her!"
Tim and Taylor hav& forged a
strong bond through their ordeal.
He and fiance, Winn Tanner, will
be married next month. They were
supposed to be married last month
and, in fact, should have been on
their honeymoon when Taylor
nearly drowned. Fortunately for the
Martin family, those plans did not
work out.
Knowing how blessed they are,
Linda and Dane have committed to
participating in a drowning aware-
ness seminar at HealthPark, part of
April Drowning Awareness Month,
to share their important message.
Because of Tim's quick and self-
less action, Taylor will be able to
enjoy her secoro birthday on April
29. Her mom is planning a doozy.

administrator; $72,500 for public
safety/EMS director, and $90,000
for the county engineer. The pack-
ages also include health care, retire-
ment, life insurance and four
weeks vacation.
Commissioner Janet Taylor
tried to veer away from personali-
ties and consider the employment


packages for each position, not the
individual.
Commissioner Maddox said he
would feel more comfortable if the
salaries were gradually raised.
Several citizens spoke, including
former county commissioner Carl
Berner, who said it was an "insult
to the people who elected you and
those who work for you." Resident
Charmaine Montgomery saidshe'd
be more amenable to pay increas-
es for teachers and deputies,


adding that the raises were
"absurdly out of proportion."
Speaking as a private citizen,
Jeff Barwick said he spent 25 years,
with the federal government and
did a lot of salary classifications. He
said they should be based on the
scope of the job. These adjust-


ments are being asked for because.
these employees are taking on new
responsibilities, he said, and are a
separate issue from a normal raise.
In the end, the board opted to
keep the positions the same and
take the subject up at a workshop
meeting in May.

tomer service relations and market-
ing department at Glades Ford. "My
daughter is getting ready to go
away to college arid even though
she is 18 1 still have the fear that this
might happen to her. I have gath-
ered information on my daughter,
so I will have the information in
case (GOD for bid) something
should happen to her at college."
Ms. Gorecki said people find it
natural to prepare for such things
as natural disasters, and it should
be a natural response to prepare
for any such emergency, even the
possible abduction of your child.
"No one wants to think that the
unimaginable could happen to
them; but according to statistics,
nearly 2,000 children are reported
missing or abducted each and
every day in the United States," she
said. "Gathering all of the informa-
tion law enforcement officials need
after the fact can be a daunting
task, especially under duress.
According to the National Center
for Missing & Exploited Children a
current good quality photo is the
single most effective tool in locating .


a missing child."

New UF/IFAS economic study out


GAINESVILLE In a new
study that reveals the changing
face of Florida agriculture, Uni-
versity of Florida researchers say
the forestry industry now has
the biggest economic impact on
the state eclipsing citrus, veg-
etables and ornamentals in
terms of output.
Annual output or sales
impacts in the forest products
industry exceed $16.6 billion,
creating 133,475 jobs, with $7.5
billion in value-added personal
and business income, and gen-
erating more than $581 million
in local, state and federal taxes
(excluding income taxes), said
Alan Hodges, an economist in
UF's .Institute of Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences, or UF/IFAS.
"Citrus is the crop most peo-
ple associate with Florida, and
the state still leads the nation in
citrus production, but our study
indicates forestry is now the
economic heavyweight in the
state's $67 billion agricultural
and natural resources industry,"
he said.
By comparison, the output in
the fruit and vegetable industry
is approximately $12.8 billion,
generating 125,000 jobs and
$437 million in taxes, according
to the most recent data sources.
The environmental horticulture
or "ornamentals" industry,
which includes production of
landscape plants, flowers,
foliage, turfgrass and associated
landscaping services, generates
$8.9 billion in output impacts in
Florida.
While forestry has a bigger
economic impact on the state,
environmental horticulture still
generates more jobs 154,205
- than forestry in Florida, he
said. Environmental horticulture

money spent on fuel, lodging,
and meals as well as recreation-
al equipment such as boats and


also is the fastest growing seg-
ment of agriculture in the United
States, and Florida is ranked as
the second largest production
state in the nation.
Hodges, who studies the eco-
nomics of Florida agriculture
with David Mulkey, a professor
in the UF/IFAS food and
resource economics depart-
ment, said other faculty con-
tributed to the report on forestry.
They include Janaki Alavalapti
and Douglas Carter, associate
professors in the UF/IFAS School
of Forest Resources and Conser-
vation.
The forestry. industry is con-
centrated mainly in North and
Central Florida, with more than
16-million acres or 25,000-
square miles of forests, repre-
sentiffg nearly half of the state's
land area, Hodges said. Forests
in Florida are managed to .pro-
duce a variety of wood and fiber
products, with about 650-mil-
lion-cubic feet of wood harvest-
ed annually.
Forests also support outdoor
recreational opportunities for
residents and.millions of visitors
to the state, providing important
no market environmental servic-
es such as biodiversity, water
recharge and mitigation of glob-
al climate change by absorbing
carbon dioxide from the atmos-
phere, Hodges said.
The growth of the Florida
forestry industry mirrors that'of
other states in the southeastern
United States, where forestry is
now the leading agricultural
commodity.
"The success of the industry
in Florida and the Southeast is
also driven by the fact that large
tracts of forest land are privately
owned, while forests in the

western part of the nation are
largely on public lands," Hodges
said. "In many cases, state and
federal restrictions on publicly
owned lands govern the amount
of logging that can take place,
particularly in old-growth
forests, which accounts for the
decline of the industry in the
West."
Hodges and Mulkey also esti-
mated the values of recreation
and tourism in their study on the
Florida forestry industry.
While tourism is the largest
and most well /known sector of
the Florida economy, forested
landscapes provide environmen-
tal amenities that support this
industry, particularly for the
growing eco-tourism market,
Hodges said. Visitors spend
about, $47 billion annually,
which translates into an overall
economic impact of $117 bil-
lion.
Various surveys indicate that
more than half of Florida visitors
engage in some type of nature-
based activity during their visit,
and 19 to 33 percent of all travel
and tourism in the southern
United States is linked to out-
door recreation, he said.
"Using the more conservative
19-percent figure, we estimate
that outdoor recreation in Flori-
da has a total economic impact
of at.least $22.3 billion annually,
creating 332,000 jobs," Hodges
said. "And some share of this
can be attributed to forest
ecosystems."
He cited U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service data showing
that wildlife-related recreational
activities including hunting,,
fishing and wildlife viewing -
account for total expenditures in
TFlorida of an estimated $6.05 bil-


/4


guns.
"While not all wildlife-related
recreational activity is directly
attributed. to forest resources,
most of the recreation, hunting
and wildlife watching takes
place in forested ecosystems,"
he said.
In addition to these commer-
cial and recreational use values
associated with forests in Flori-
da, there is an array of no market
environmental services that are
important to recognize,
although they may be difficult to
measure, he said.
These no market environ-
mental services include: Surface
and ground water storage,
purification of air and water, mit-
igation of droughts and floods,
stabilization of climate, genera-
tion and preservation of soils,
decomposition of wastes,
cycling and movement of nutri-
ents, provision of wildlife habitat
and maintenance of biodiversity.
Hodges said Florida.forests
absorb or "sequester" about 5.8-
million tons of carbon from the
atmosphere every year, which
helps reduce the effects of glob-
al warming. Using the figure of
$5 per ton, this positive environ-
mental impact is worth about
$29 million annually, he said.

Disaster helpline hours changing


ORLANDO The operational
hours for the disaster helpline are
being .changed by the Department
of Homeland Security's Federal
Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) and the state of Florida as
the number of inquires has
decreased, federal and state offi-
cials said.


Beginning April 11, the Helpline
will be open to receive phone calls
from disaster victims during the
new hours from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Monday through Friday.
The toll free helpline number is
(800) 621-3362, and for those with
hearing and speech impairments
the TIY number is (800) 462-7585.
"FEMA and the State Emer-


agency Response Team (SERT) will
continue to respond to all ques-
tions from those who suffered
damages, have registered with
FEMA for aid and now have ques-
tions regarding their applications,"
said Craig Fugate, state coordinat-
ing officer for SERT.
Bill Carwile, FEMA coordinator


for the disaster, said, "This is only a
change in hours of operation appli-
cants needing help from FEMA and
the state can be assured that the
helpline is still available Monday
through Friday. For more informa-
tion on SERT go to www.floridadis-

Lawmakers call for investigations


WASHINGTON The IRS esti-
mates that some 50-million Ameri-
cans will scramble in the first
weeks of this month to meet the
April 15 deadline to file their tax
returns. But among those mailing
last-minute returns may be
inmates getting refunds for work
they didn't do because they're
behind bars.
Recent published accounts
found that with the help of a few
outsiders, two inmates serving
long sentences in Florida prisons
for murder filed fraudulent tax
returns and received refunds of
around $5,000 from the IRS for
wages they never earned.
And as it turns out their scam
isn't unique to Florida. For exam-
ple, Donald Sanders was indicted


last year for filing a fake tax return
for himself and 65 other inmates
while serving time at the Missouri
Eastern Correctional Center in
2002. Prosecutors believe the
scheme cost taxpayers over
$73,000. And in 2003, two inmates
at the Carson City Correctional
Facility in Michigan were sentenced
to an additional 27 months in
prison when authorities discovered
their plans to file false tax returns
on behalf of fellow prisoners for
refunds totaling more than
$46,000.
According to the IRS itself,
bogus returns from prison inmates
is a growing problem. Inmates
long have been among those filing
multiple returns for illegal refunds,
IRS officials say. Though the scope
of the problem is unknown.


That's why four legislators from
Florida, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and
U.S. Reps. Jim Davis, Ric Keller and
Tom Feeney, want to put a stop to
this tax scam. They've asked the
investigative arm of Congress to
find out how widespread the prob-
lem is and to identify ways law-
makers could safeguard the system
from prisoners .who aim to cheat
the government.
"Convicts should go to prison to
pay their debts to society, not to rip
off American taxpayers," Nelson
said.
"It is outrageous that as millions
of law-abiding citizens are strug-
gling to pay their taxes, criminals in
prisons- across the nation are
already receiving thousands in IRS
refunds from fraudulent claims,"
David added. "This scam needs to


be fully investigated immediately
so that we can put a stop to this
activity."
"We need the IRS to explain to
us in the light of day why in the
world they can't crack down on
this blatant fraud by prisoners,"
stated Keller.
'American taxpayers deserve to
know the full extent to which they
are being swindled by prison
inmates. A GAO inquiry will help
Congress gather more information
about this scheme so we can pre-
vent it from happening in the
future," said Feeney.
Nelson, Davis, Keller and
Feeney are concerned that access
to the Internet in U.S. correctional
facilities may make it easier for
inmates to file phony returns.

Rep. Harris urges Congress: Move now


WASHINGTON," DC U.S.
Rep. Katherine Harris (R-FLi has
urged Congress to permanently
free America's hard working
farmers, ranchers, small business .
owners, and their families from
the specter of the death tax by
passing H.R. 8, the Death Tax
Repeal Permanency Act of 2005.
The U.S. House of Representa-
tives is slated to consider H.R. 8,
this week.
"Benjamin Franklin said that,
'in this world nothing is certain
,but death and taxes,' but I doubt
that even the inventive Mr.
Franklin imagined the taxation of
death itself," Rep. Harris said.
"Americans get taxed when they


earn money. They get taxed again
when they spend what is left.
Unquenched, government then
pursues taxpayers beyond the
grave causing devastating con-
sequences for the grieving rela-
tives they leave behind, many of
whom must sell the family farm
or the family business just to pay
the taxes.
"Worse yet, the death tax may
cost more to collect than it gener-
ates in revenue, while it stifles the
creation of jobs and opportunity
by punishing thrift, deterring
investment, and diverting capital
to unproductive activities like tax
avoidance. I urge my colleagues
to join me in writing the obituary


for the death tax, so that we may
finally liberate America's families
from this useless relic."
The Economic Growth and
Tax Relief Recoficiliation Act of
2001, which provided over $1.35
trillion in. tax relief for America's
workers, gradually eliminated the
death tax over 10 years, but with
one major catch in 2011, the
death tax returns in full force.
H.R. 8 removes this expiration
or "sunset" provision, perma-
nently eliminating the possibility
that like a vampire, this unfair tax
might rise from the dead to once
again suck the blood from a life-
time of hard work.

FIVE TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR HOME'S VALUE


Are you among the thousands
of people who are thinking about
improving their current 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 necessary, 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 mainte-
nance 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 prop-
erty adequately will decrease its
value by whatever it will cost to
repair the damage or implement
necessary maintenance proce-
dures. Think of home mainte-
nance improvements as a way of
protecting your home's value
from going down.
3. Cosmetic improvements neu-
trally effect a home's value. Jobs
like stripping wallpaper or paint-
ing are cosmetic improvements
that most homeowners can do
themselves, making the percep-
tion of their value seem less.
Therefore, it makes more sense
to do most cosmetic work your-
self instead of paying someone
else to do it.
4. Be aware of over-improving
your home, especially if you plan
to sell it within 2 to 5 years.
Before you commit to a big proj-
ect, such as installing a three-car
garage or an in-ground pool,
check to see if it's out of character
for your neighborhood. If your
house is improved way beyond
others in the neighborhood, 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 neighborhood. Realtors use
home sales information on com-
parable 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.
