Impact fee discussion set


County invites LaBelle, Clewiston to workshop May 17


: By Patty Brant
Anticipating unprecedented
growth over the next few years,
local government has been
exploring the use of impact
fees, paid by new residents and
businesses, to pay for that
growth. Road impact fees are
the first to be considered. Oth-
ers are likely to be considered to


support additional schools and
emergency services later.
The county, city of LaBelle
and city of Clewiston have all
expressed their acceptance of
impact fees as a means for
development .to help pay its
own way. In fact, the Depart-
ment of Community Affairs
(DCA) sees impact fees as a vital


Brown Sugar


component in planning for,
growth. Road impact fees have-
been the first to be discuised.
However, there has been an
impasse over the levels needed.
The county and city of Clewis-
ton basically approving fees

Rodriguez named new Miss


Latina of the Glades 2005


By Ideybis Gonzalez
CLEWISTON The cur-
rent Miss Latina of the Glades,
Yadira Lorenzo, turned in her
crown to First Runner-up Alex-
is Rodriguez, during a special
ceremony held at John Boy
Auditorium April 28.
Before handing the crown
over to Miss Rodriguez, Miss
Lorenzo stated, "I have some
personal issues going on in my
life right now and I don't think
I am totally prepared to wear
this crown, therefore I have
decided to turn in my crown to
the first runner up. And I know
Alexis will. do a great job,"
added Miss. Rodriguez.
Alexis Rodriguez is the
daughter of Julio and
Annabelle Rodriguez, owners
of the Cuban cuisine restau-


'rant "Cafe Tropical" in Clewis-
ton.
It was a very emotional
moment when- Miss Lorenzo,
accompanied by Milagros
Navarro, pageant coordinator
for Miss Latina of the Glades,
when she turned over the
crown to Miss Rodriguez, who
was joined by her family to
witness the acceptance of the
crown, thus accepting her title
as the new Miss Latina.
The event was held Thurs-
day evening at the Clewiston
Inn, where family, friends, and
all the past contestants were
present to say farewell to Miss.
Lorenzo and to be apart of the
unforgettable day for Miss
Rodriguez, who will now fulfill
her role in taking on the
responsibilities of being the


2005 Miss Latina of the Glades,
There was some specula-
tion as to why Miss Lorenzo
opted out of her reign, but ulti-
mately cited "personal" rea-
sons as to why she could not
go forward with retaining the
title she won just a few weeks
ago.
The duty of the first runner-
up in any pageant is to under-
stand that, if for any reason the
current queen cannot fulfill
her obligations to the crown, it
would be the first runner-up
who would assume the title.
That is the case for Miss
Rodriquez who will now carry
the title and crown of Miss
Latina of the Glades, as well as
continuing on with the many
obligations of a beauty queen.

In Remembrance:

Nellie Louise
Stiles Lang
(Aurhor ot Little Tree)


Tiny found work as a Santa Claus
for department stores in the
Racine area and would also make
appearances at private homes.
Tiny truly enjoyed his employ-
ment as Santa Claus.
Tiny began working for the
Nels P. Nelson Shoe Repair and
Family Shoe Store in Racine. In
the 1950's, Tiny purchased:the
shoe repair business from Mr.
Nelson, and in 1958, purchased
the family shoe store. Tiny also
developed the orthopedic design
for shoes for people with special
needs. The business became
known as Tiny's Shoe Store.
Tiny, being a large man, found
it difficult to purchase clothing of
ample size. When he was able to
locate large sizes, Tiny would pur-
chase a small quantity, keeping
some for himself and selling the
remainder to the public. The
demand for the clothing
increased and Tiny began stock-
ing an inventory for the store,
which became known as "Tiny's
Big and Tall Store."
In his spare time, in an effort to
provide for his family, Tiny began
purchasing and maintaining
rental property.
In 1985, Tiny became semi-
retired, moved to Genoa, WI, and
opened a second "Tiny's Big and
Tall Store" in Onalaska. He spent
the last 20 years enjoying family,
the state of Wisconsin and his
many friends. Weeklong fishing
trips to Clewiston with his good
friend Tom Bellaire led. Tiny to
establishing a winter residence in
Clewiston.
Tiny is survived by daughter,
Nancy (Roy) Shutes of Racine;
sons Donald, Thomas, Robert,
and James Cook, of Racine; step-
son Larry Wallace of Florida;
grandchildren Jennifer, Brian and
Robert, Jr.; six step-grandchil-
dren; a soon to be great-grand-
daughter, Nevaeh; and longtime
friend and companion, Jeannie
Wallace.
He was preceded in death by
his wife Ruth and his parents,
Lucille (Denzel) and his stepfa-
ther Philip Kloss.
Friends may call at the Dickin-
son Family Funeral Home, 1425

al services and burial were held in

There are two Pitanga bushes
growing in my yard planted as
ornamental shrubs. When I
noticed bright red fruit on one of
the bushes, I wondered if it was
edible. A little Internet research
revealed that not only is the fruit
safe to eat, it is also quite nutritious.
Pitanga, also called Surinam
Cherry, has a very' sour fruit
because it is high in Vitamin C. One
cup of raw fruit has about 57 calo-
ries and contains 52 percent of the
USDA minimum daily requirement
of Vitamin A and 75 percent of the
daily requirement of Vitamin C a
nice surprise for something I just
found growing in, the yard.
, Since the fruit is quite tart, I don't
think I would want to eat acup of raw
Surinam Cherries. But the fruit can be
used in jams to add vitamin boost to
a morning treat, or pitted and
chopped to add color to fruit salad.

protection. Use a wide brimmed hat
to keep the sun off your face and
wear sunglasses to protect your eyes,
and the delicate skin around the eyes.
For those working outdoors in the
sun, long-sleeved shirts offer some
protection, but in the heat of the day
you can be burned even through a
cotton shirt, so try to stay out of the
midday sun (noon to 3 p.m.)
Before making any change in
your diet or exercise program, con-
sult your doctor. This is especially
important if you are on any pre-
scription medications. Some foods
that would otherwise be consid-
ered ."healthy" interact badly with
prescription medications.

Letter to the Editor


No privacy
Dear editor:
On April 14, 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 confi-
dentiality is violated, that person
involved needs to call, write or
visit the agency head and report
the individuals) 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.

,tor of Hendfy/Glades County

First of all, I don't have just an
ordinary Mom. I have a Mother. My
Mother is a friend, a caregiver and a
role model. My Mother is someone
who makes me want to always
strive for the best and never give up.
I remember when I was grow-
ing up my Mother always told me
that whatever I decide to become
in life, wther it be a prestigious
career or a not so prestigious career
be good at it.
Those words still follow me
toda\ and I live by them. Mother's
encouragement gives rne the drive
to strive for success. The lady in
question is Katie Perry. I love you
Mother, Your Daughter Shelia.,


Irene Christle, AKA Mom
"Mother" is such a big word
with an even bigger meaning.
My Mom was a single parent
with xto girls. Sometimes we went
without, but not from my Mom's
lack of trying. I wasn't easy to raise.
I gave her a hard time;
I never understood her or really lis-
tened when she said, "I've been
where you are and trust meyourway
won'twork! Iwant more foryou."
Never have I understood her more
than I do now that I'm a mother.
SMorm, you were right!! Thank
you for understanding me and let-
ting me grow and not giving up on
me. I love you with all my heart,
your daughter, Charlene Johnson.

The tragedy of disrupted lives


The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, PH.D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston.
A lady who had been robbed
told me about the terrible feelings
that followed. She said that her
house was not the same now a
special space had been invaded.
What she had always felt was
secure was no longer secure -
someone had entered who was
not welcome or invited and it might
happen again. In a sense, her
home was no longer her home and
she was affected by the intrusion as
well as the loss of what was hers.
The sanctuary was no longer
safe the mementos, the jewelry
with its sentimental value, the
money that was set aside to pay
bills or buy food was now gone.
Along with the tangible losses,
there was an image, a worldview
that was shattered. Whatwas felt to
be once a safe place was now no
longer safe at all. I have encoun-
tered other "shattered worldviews"
that have impressed me more
deeply. These have been the world-
views of returning service person-
nel.


I remember young persons
coming home from the Viet Nam
war. They had grown up and lived
in their familiar communities -
marrying their high school sweet-
hearts and beginning to settle into a
routine. They were growing togeth-
er and sharing life as a couple. It
was a very rewarding experience
for me to share in their growing
together as a new couple and
watching them get their lives
underway.
The separation and the experi-
ences of war had each of them
growing at different paces, each
having different experiences, each
having things happen that were not
or could not be shared. They would
come home, but it was difficult to
try to pick up where they had left
off.
Saturday would come and one
partner would want to go to the
movies or to a dance, the other was
content to sit home and be quiet.
One would want to go to the
movies or to a dance, the other was
quite happy being alone. Readjust-
ment back was a slow process and
took lots of patience and under-
standing. I remember the words of

a face of hell is different than for
those who have not experienced it.

chameleon came out of a wall
toward him, and watched him spin
around suddenly when there was a
sharp noise behind him.
Jesus confronts a man who
lived in the tombs and who had an
"evil spirit". He lived away from
society and Mark tells us that he
tore apart the chains of those who
wanted to subdue him, and he
could cry out and cut himself (Mark
5:1 fo. His first encounter with Jesus
led him to say, "What do you want
with me... swear to God that you
won't torture me." His view of the

arrived, and I shared my misery. He
opened up the hood of the truck,
looked around for a minute, then
reached over and tightened the bat-

up. I couldn't believe that all of my
turmoil could have been solved so
simply. A friend of mine shared
something that I didn't appreciate
so much at the time, but appreciate -
more now: "Sometimes we are
stuck on the garbage piles of life
because we are not connected to
our power source.",
The statement is more true than
we sometimes realize. Many times
a solution to the problems we are
facing can be found when we con-
nect to our power source. God. is
our power source. Prayer is one
strong way we connect to Him.

The account tells us that Jesus
"gave permission" for the evil spir-
its to come out of him (Mark 5:13).
The evil spirits were displaced
and sent off and the man who had
been possessed was found sitting,
dressed and in his "right mind". His
worldview was changed for the
better, even after years of trauma
and hurt. Out there, there are still
loving people, out there we can
find people that are kind, there still
exist people that want to live in
peace and who aren't out to torture
or kill or terrorize or destroy.
Our message to those who have
"seen hell" is that we have a better
view of the world and one that will
be shared and restored to those
who have been hurt if they give it
enough time. We have Jesus' call to
help in the healing and restoration.
Those who come home to us
changed need us and we must not
fail them. We must be there for
them and let them know we still
believe.


r source
in life, a call is going out today for all
people of our United States to con-
nect to our power source. Today,
May 5th, is the 54th annual National
Day of Prayer.
The National Day of Prayer pro-
vides each of us with a powerful
opportunity and reminder to come
together and bow. our heads in
prayer and ask God to bless our
leaders with wisdom and discern-
ment, to turn our nation from its
ungodly ways, and to,bless our -
community, our schools, our chil-
dren, our churches, our families,
and ourselves.
This year's theme is "God Shed
His Grace On Thee" and is based
on Hebrews 4:16 "Let us then
approach the throne of grace with
confidence so that we may receive
mercy and find grace in our time of
need." In other words, to find
mercy and grace .and help in our
time of need, let us make' sure we
connect to our Power Source!

Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Hello. My
name is John, and I try to listen to
your show whenever I can. On
occasion I have heard you men-
tion, "Do not feed any stray wild
animals!" Well, ,
I have a small -
family of rac- .
coons on my .
property that I
have been feed-
ing for about a
month. They
are so adorable, [
and it really
seems' harm-
less. Why is it such a bad idea?
Thank you. John from Loxa-
hatchee.
A: Well hey John, and thankyou .
for tuning in to the show. You
should call in sometime! OK, Feed-
ing wild raccoons is a bad idea, no
matter how cute they are. The
problem you are creating is a
dependency and, teaching them it
is ok to approach humans! If you
provide feed for them, they will not
hunt for themselves. Also, they may
start to come closer, or into your
home thinking you are "OK". John
did you know that raccoons are


one of the top rabies carriers? What
if you were bitten? You would have
to go through a series of shots as a
prevention! So, I strongly recom-
mend you stop feeding them ASAP.
Take care John, Doc Savvy.

Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Is it true that
antifreeze kills pets? Myriah in Belle
Glade.
A: Hello Myriah, yes, it is true.
Antifreeze has a chemical in it
called ethylene glycol and it is
extremely toxic. Antifreeze for
some reason has a attractive taste
to it, which seems to attract pets!
There are some pet friendly
antifreeze products out on the mar-
ket, but I don't know enough about
them to comment. Ethylene Glycol
causes an acute onset of renal fail-
ure, so in other words, it puts your
pet into kidney failure ASAP! And it
is not common to remedy the
problem with a good prognosis.
Treatment is very time sensitive!
There are other common house-
hold products with ethylene glycol
in it too. Liquid Plumber is one of
them, so be careful! Great question
Myriah. Thanks, Doc Savvy.

Dogs attack Bellle Belle Glades Arrest Report


Glade policeman


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE Two vicious
dogs attacked a Belle Glade
police officer, who was caught
by surprise by the roaming dogs.
The dogs managed to bite the
officer, who is now in good con-
dition and expected to make a
quick recovery.
The dogs seized the officer,
with the dogs grabbing at both
of his legs, before another officer
stepped in to help.
Officers were called to the
600 Northwest Avenue L, where
dispatch reported that someone
at the Morales Produce Business
was in need of help. The person
who called for help was inside of
a green pick up truck near the
site.
When he arrived, Sergeant E.
Britt exited his patrol car while a
second officer, D. Smith,
approached the person who had
made the call for help.
According to Sergeant Britt,
"Suddenly there appeared in
front of me two mongrel-type
dogs, both growling and
snarling."
The dogs immediately
attacked, lunging at him and
grabbing hold to each of the offi-
cer's legs. The two dogs, a medi-
um-sized black dog and a small,
tan dog one is thought-to have
been a Pitbull -. continued to
attack the officer.
"I attempted to fight the dogs
off, and at one time grabbed
each dog and was holding them
off of my legs, but they managed
to slip free and continued biting
my legs," Sergeant Britt said.


Officer Smith, taking note of
the attack, went to aid his part-
ner and sprayed pepper spray on
the dogs to get them to stop
attacking.
Only then was Sergeant Britt
able to get away from the dan-
ger, though in a painful state
from the multiple bite wounds
he suffered.
Emergency workers were
called in to the scene and treated
Sergeant Britt while Officer
Smith continued to hold back
the dogs. Police Chief Albert
Dowdell also arrived at the scene
and personally helped keep the
dogs from getting out of the area
and attacking anyone else.
One of the dogs had to be
shot because he could not be
contained, while the other was
captured, by personnel with the
animal department.
Sergeant Britt. suffered mod-
erate wounds to his left calf, his
right knee and his right thigh.
The dogs penetrated his left fore-
arm and the inside of his right
wrist. He was taken to Glades
General Hospital, where he
received a tetanus shot.
According to the police, the
dogs had been roaming the area
before the attack. It is unknown
how they escaped, but it is
believed that one of the dogs
belonged to the owner of a near-
by mechanic shop. Authorities
will be following up on any sub-
sequent action to the owner or
owners of the dogs, though it is
uncertain at this point what that
may be.

From black nothing to black gold


How her soil became her fortune


By Ashley Tripp
Glades Historical Society
Dr. Robert Verrill Allison was
born June 25, 1895 on a farm in
Stryker, Ohio. He came to Belle
Glade in 1926 as vice-director of
the University of Florida's new
agricultural research center, the
Everglades Experiment Station.
Dr. Allison is most notably
known for being the soil chemist
who unlocked the secrets to suc-
cessfully growing crops in the
rich enigmatic Everglades soil
known as peat. The secrets are
known as the "Four Horsemen
of the Everglades Agriculture"
and are the four missing trace
elements copper, man-
ganese, zinc and boron need-
ed to make the peat soil suitable
for growing crops and raising
livestock.
Because of Dr. Allison's scien-
tific research of the Everglades'
soil, what once was hundreds of
thousands of acres of unproduc-
tive land is now and has been for
nearly a century one of the high-
est yielding agricultural areas in
the world.
Dr. Allison was very well edu-
cated in soil science. He attend-
ed Purdue University where he


received in 1920 his Bachelor of
Science degree in soils. He then
attended Rutgers University on a
scholarship where he received
his M.S. in 1921 and his PhD in
soil chemistry in 1923. While
attending Rutgers he worked in
the science laboratory under the
instruction of Dr. Selman Waks-
man, the famous Russian soil
microbiologist who is credited
for discovering the antibiotic
streptomycin from a soil
microorganism.
In 1924, Dr. Allison traveled to
England where he did his post-
doctoral study at Rothamsted,
the world's oldest agriculture
research center and pioneering
contributor to soil science.
Upon returning to the United
States, Dr. Allison was spon-
sored in a joint study of Cuban
soils with Hugh H. Bennett, the
father of the U. S. soil conserva-
tion and the first Chief of the Soil
Conservation Service. They
were in Cuba for two years
(1925-26) analyzing all of the
island's soils and documenting
their findings in the book, "The
Soils of Cuba," which Cuba uses
to this day as a valuable agricul-
tural resource.


Days before Dr. Allison's
arrival in the fall of 1926, Belle
Glade was hit by a hurricane
which left water standing for
weeks making it unsuitable for
research and farming. Once he
was able to settle in, he began
his aggressive research to find
out why some plants sprouted,
grew, and then failed. Just
before his scientific break-
through, the infamous 1928
storm struck Belle Glade leaving
devastation and destruction
everywhere and leaving the sta-
tion with a staff of only two, Dr.
Allison and George Tedder.
For the next six years, Dr. Alli-
son worked tirelessly in his soil
research at the station before
being "borrowed" for two years
to do the Cuban soil surveys. In
1936 he returned to the Universi-
ty of Florida in Gainesville as
Head of the Soil Chemistry
Department until 1944 when, he
returned to Belle Glade as the
Everglades Experiment Station's
vice-director in charge. In 1952,
the station appointed him Fiber
Technologist because of the
growing interest in the durable
fabric ramie, a fiber-producing
plant, which Dr. Allison original-


ly introduced to the experiment
station during his first few years
there. He concentrated his last
25 years of research to ramie
and is considered the "father of
ramie".
Other noteworthy accom-
plishments and achievements by
Dr. R.V. Allison are:
1939 founding charter mem-
ber and chairman of the Soil and
Crop Science of Society of Flori-
da.
Completed the first aerial
map of the state of Florida which
proved to be very useful for the
rapid growth of the 1950s.
Llife member of the Ameri-
can Association for the Advance-
ment of Science.
Listed in Who's Who in
American Scientists.
Author of many bulletins and
articles in his-field.
Dr. Allison and his passion in
soil and farming research are
chief contributors of Florida's
agricultural and economic suc-
cess for the past century. The
history of Belle Glade and other
surrounding Palm Beach County
communities (Canal Point,
Pahokee, South Bay, and Lake
Harbor) are indebted to him and
the University of Florida for their
scientific achievements and dis-
coveries that turned their
swamp into a sugar bowl.


Winners announced for 'Treemendous' contest


BELLE GLADE On Satur-
day, April 23, the City of Belle
Glade held its annual "Great
American Cleanup," which is
sponsored by the Solid Waste
Authority (SWA) and Keep Palm
Beach County Beautiful, Inc.
(KPBCB). Several local neigh-
borhoods were cleaned up as
well as Main Street, which the
Belle Glade Chamber of Com-
merce sponsored.
Over 34 tons of trash and lit-
ter were collected that day by
140-registered volunteers, cit\
employees and chamber mern-
bers. Many thanks to Barbaia
Bell-Spence, Johnny Goode-,,
Maggie Sallet, and Linda Towell I
for planning this event and to the
host of sponsors and volunteers
who made such a positive
impact in our community.
In conjunction with the
"Great American Cleanup Day ',
the Chamber announced the
winners of their list e\er
"TREErr,erndoius Beauilicatiorn
Contest". Contestamn-A-ere
judged by Lourdes Ferris, the
executive director of KPBCB,
Joanna Aiken and Heather
Wayde, both liaisons of SWA.
Winners were selected based
upon the overall, most improve-
ments made to beautify the exte-
rior of their property grounds
and/or building.
First place prize of $1,500 was
awarded to Gove Elementary
School for the creation of their
1st grade reading garden, which
gave the previously lifeless area


a very vibrant and inviting place
for reading. Second place prize
of $1,000 was given to Wee Care
Child Development Center for
the admirable paint job of their
facility as well as landscaping
the grounds and making a new
sign. Third place prize of $500
was awarded to Glades Day
School for enhancing their cam-
pus with landscaping, especially
in their courtyard and around


their newly painted sign, which
is very attractive to those passing
by. In addition to these winners,
KPBCB sponsored the tied
fourth place winners, Taco Bell
and The Paint Store and More,
with $250 each for their out-
standing improvements.
The Chamber is thrilled with
the community spirit displayed
in all of the contestants' efforts
and hard.work. They believe the

Pahokee to wait on new police chief


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
PAHOKEE City Manager Lillie
Latimore .told commissioners and
residents that she would like to
hold off on the city filling the vacant
police chief slot until later this year.
With a slew of new and recent
hires at city hall, she said she would
like the opportunity to see the
important positions comfortable in
their new roles before adding any
more employees to the top ranks at
the city chief of police included.
The city manager conveyed that
thought to the community at a
recent city meeting, held in Paho-
kee April 26, in response to a ques-
tion from a commissioner inquir-
ing as to the process.
Recent disruptions in the hierar-
chy at city hall have led to the resig-
nations of a number of employees.
With such a high turnover rate, city
staff continues working through
the transition and adapt to the new
faces, Ms. Latimore explained.
The city manager told the com-
mission in the past that most of the
resignations were of people look-
ing to expand their careers by pur-
suing other projects in the corpo-
rate and governmental arenas. The
city of Pahokee cannot compete
with the pay of other organizations,


I -


,i.


which has lured some of the
employees away.
According to Ms. Latimore, the
city, in only the last few months,
has hired a new city clerk, a new
human resources person and
finance director and added a con-
tract compliance officer and an
assistant to the city manager.
"In even large organizations, the
change of three positions is already
too much," she said after the meet-
ing.
To focus the city's efforts at sta-
bilization, she hopes the commis-
sion will agree that waiting a few
months will be the best way to
approach the hiring of the new
chief.
She calls the flood of hires a
"shock" to the city's administra-
tion. "I'm stretched in 2,000 direc-
tions trying to get them settled,"
Ms. Latimore said.
The city manager asked the
commission to support her recom-
mendation to hold off on the deci-
sion until the end of summer, when
she imagined the city would select
the new chief.
The process, though, would
begin in July, with the city advertis-
ing for the position at that time and
allowing a grace period in which to


accept the applications..
Until today, the city has received
less than a handful of applicants to
inquire about the position and sub-
mit their resumes for review.
City staff will review all entries
following the official advertisement
forthejob.
Ms. Latimore remains mindful
of the community's push to select a
new chief as quick as possible. Fol-
lowing the resignation of the for-
mer police chief under what the
city has described as lackluster per-
formance, the community has
wondered what would happen to
the empty slot.. '
Almost immediately following
the former chief's departure, the
city named Detective Calipto Gon-
zalez to the interim police chief
position, which he has held for
approximately two months now.
Though the commission has
expressed approval for Chief Gon-
zalez's performance thus far, the
city manager said she would like to
offer a fair opportunity to all appli-
cants.
"I know that's not what the peo-
. ple want to hear," said Ms. Lati-
more, "but it would be worse to
keep adding new people."

Lady Tigei
By Mark Young
Clewiston High School's Lady
Tigers placed sixth overall, out of
40 teams vying for the regional
championship, which took place
April 23, but also returned a
regional champ and a regional
championship relay squad.
Senior Alisa Abreu, senior
Everlyn Thompson, sophomore
Tequilla Weston, freshman Mary
Hegley, and sophomore Curtissa
Franklin combined to win the
4x400-meter relay race, emerging
as regional champs, and securing
a spot in the state championship
finals with a winning time- of
4:14.21.
Joining the Lady Tiger relay
team as champions was Nichole
Pope who dominated the regional
shot put action with a victorious
toss of 36'08". Pope's winning
shot put throw powered her to
victory by just under three feet.
Earning valuable points for
Clewiston was Teadra Jackson,
who captured tenth place in the
dicus and Thompso took fifth in
the long jump. Clewiston's
mighty relay team was not done
making noise as individuals from
the squad separated to accom-
plish some impressive individual
feats, as well.

after winning the district final"
This was also the first time the
Lady Terriers entered the district
tournament as the number one
seed and after Evangelical knocked
off Cantebury 23-12, but was little
match to the overpowering Lady
Terriers who put on an offensive
showcase, backed by solid pitch-
ing from Sera Griffin and Megan.
Randolph who combined to throw
the one-hit 21-0 shutout.
The victory pitted Moore Haven
against St. John Neumann who
had defeated Community School
of Naples, the only team to have
achieved the upper hand against
Moore Haven during the regular
season. It proved to be a battle.
Randolph was a blistering force
from the mound, striking out 15,
with no walks, and only allowing
three hits. But the pitching was
equally effective from the other
side, and it took more than seven


3208. Coaches and volunteers are
needed for the soccer program to
reach its fullest level of success.

innings before the Lady Terriers
found the chink in the armor to
capture the game and champi-
onship.
Susan Mathis drew a lead off
walk in the seventh, but a failed
bunt attempt left a solo runner
aboard with one out. Sierra Dionne
made it safely to first to avoid the
double play and Dionne stole sec-
ond base as Moore Haven's next
hitter went down on strikes, leav-
ing a runner in scoring position,
but with two outs on the board in
the final inning.
The throw down to second.
went awry, getting by the infielders
and just past the glove of the cen-
terfielder. Coach Goodwin gam-
bled that Dionne could make it
home before the Lady Celtic could
gather in the loose ball and make
the throw, and the gamble paid off
'with Dionne scoring the winning
run.

First run for child abduction team proves successful


FT. MYERS The Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
(FDLE) is pleased to announce the
successful recovery of 12-year-old
Margarita Aguilar-Lopez who went
missing from Manatee County on
Tuesday. Margarita was located in
South Carolina by FDLE and FBI
special agents.
"We are extremely happy that
Margarita is safe. It was a total team
effort on the part of local, state and
federal law enforcement who did
outstanding investigative work,"
said FDLE Assistant Special Agent
in Charge Steve Emerson of the Ft.


Myers office.
The disappearance of Margarita
spurred the first activation of the
Fort Myers Regional Child Abduc-
tion Response Team (CART). CART
was established earlier this year to
form a team of law enforcement
investigators and analysts through-
out the region that could respond
quickly to a reported abduction
and assist local law enforcement
with the investigation.
On Tuesday, FDLE was contacted
by the Bradenton Police Department
with the report of a missing child.
FDLE's Missing Children's Informa-


tion Clearinghouse, located in Talla-
hassee, quickly issued a missing
child alert across the state. The CART
was activated and responded to the
Bradenton Police Department.
Working from the intelligence
gathered by the BPD, agents began
interviewing witnesses and family
members. Information revealed
that Margarita had been missing
since Monday evening. Family
members waited to report her dis-
appearance to laW enforcement
until the next morning. It was
believed that Margarita was with
Antonio Paulino-Perez, age 25.


Police learned that Paulino-Perez
may try to take Margarita out of the
state. An Amber Alert was issued
and law enforcement around the
country was notified of the descrip-
tion of the victim and the suspect
and a possible vehicle in which
they might be traveling.
Cart members continued to
work through the night Tuesday
and into Wednesday morning fol-
lowing approximately 80 tips gen-
erated through the Amber Alert sys-
tem. Through the use of a
confidential informant and inves-
tigative techniques, agents were


Attorney General sues health provider


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist announced
that he has sued a Collier County
mental health provider for submit-
ting more than 3,700 false claims to
receive more than $514,000 from
Florida's Medicaid program.
The lawsuit filed under Florida's
False Claims Act alleges that case
managers at David Lawrence Men-
tal Health Center routinely billed
Medicaid up to $40 per hour for
activity that was not eligible for
reimbursement by the Medicaid


program. Case managers submit-
ted claims for "targeted case man-
agement" to Medicaid for such
things as accompanying a recipient
to the beach for the day, attending
parties and carnivals, running per-
sonal errands for recipients, shop-
ping for and delivering a birthday
cake and snack chips, and taking
recipients to lunch.
"Florida is sending a message
that defrauding the Medicaid pro-
gram has consequences," said
Crist. "The taxpayers fund this life-


line that is designed to provide
services for low income taxpayers.
While Medicaid is there is help
needy patients, it was never intend-
ed to fund escorts for a trip to the
beach or to attend parties."
The lawsuit alleges that when
David Lawrence Mental Health
Center provided actual case man-
agement services, case managers
routinely inflated the amount of
time claimed. The center then sub-
mitted those inflated claims to
Medicaid for payment. The pri-


mary goal of targeted case man-
agement is to coordinate the provi-
sion of services by others.
The Attorney General is seeking
triple damages for the amount
falsely submitted to Medicaid, for a
total of more than $1.5 million,
plus $10,000 for each false claim
submitted by David Lawrence
Mental Health Center.
A copy of the complaint is avail-
able at

Extension Service offers cleanup course


able to locate Margarita and Pauli-
no-Perez at a Wal-Mart in Easley,
South Carolina at approximately
8:30 p,m, on Wednesday evening.
The case is still under investigation
and charges are pending against
Paulino-Perez.
"The CART is a work in'
progress," Emerson said. "But from
what I have seen during this case I
believe the CART will be extremely


helpful in cases in the future."
The CART in this case included
the Bradenton Police Department,
Manatee County Sheriff's Office,
FDLE, FBI, Immigration and Cus-
toms Enforcement, and the Nation-
al Center for Missing and Exploited
-Children. FDLE is working with
local, state and federal law enforce-
ment agencies to establish CART
across the state.

The Atlantic hurricane season
runs from June 1 through Nov. 30.
In advance of the 2005 Hurricane
Season,.. the University of
Florida/St. Lucie County Coopera-
tive Extension office in conjunc-
tion with the UF/Indian River
Research and Education Center
and the Indian River County
Extension office are offering the
2005 Ditch and Canal Weed Man-
agement Short Course.
This short course will be
offered Wednesday, May 4 at the
St Lucie County Cooperative
Extension in Ft. Pierce.
Most of St. Lucie County's ele-
vation is only slightly higher than
sea level. Our storm-water
drainage system is able to handle


typical rainfall events. Unfortu-
nately, catastrophic events such
as a hurricane can raise water lev-
els beyond normal capacity.
Hurricane-related debris such
as fallen trees, erosion, structural
debris and aquatic vegetation can
contribute to the problem by
clogging up the system, impeding
water flow and causing flooding.
Local University of Florida
Extension experts are working
with local storm-water drainage
system managers to prepare for
the 2005 Hurricane Season. These
experts will be teaching partici-
pants strategies for "Keeping
Waterways Clear of Debris and
Pesticide Pollutants;" "Aquatic
Plant and Ditch Bank Brush Id &


Management;" and "Pesticides,
Water Chemistry and Water Qual-
ity Indicators." ,
Participants will learn how to
utilize flashboard risers to control
sediment. Erosion control fabrics
and devices will be displayed. The
pros and cons of hydro-seeding
for erosion control will be dis-
cussed.
Overall, the goal of this pro-
gram is to help abate flooding
issues by teaching storm-water
drainage system managers strate-
gies to prepare for the possibility
of another catastrophic hurricane
season.

please contact Linette Trabulsy,

AG office settles price-gouging case

Kickin' up the sugar
The Country Rhythm Cloggers were just one of many tal-
ented group of youngsters taking center stage at this
year's Sugar Festival.


Sweet turtles?
Little turtles were big business at the Sugar Festival in
Clewiston Saturday April 16.


TALLAHASSEE Attorney Gen-
eral Charlie Crist announced the set-
tlement of a price-gouging lawsuit
against a Crestview motel located in
Okaloosa County that overcharged
consumers for basic necessities dur-
ing a declared state of emergency
resulting from Hurricane Frances.
Under the settlement agreement,
Budget Inns of Crestview, Inc., doing
business as Days Inn of Crestview at
4255 South Ferdon Boulevard, has
agreed to pay $10,000, including half
of which will go to the Florida Hurri-
cane Relief Fund. The motel will also
pay restitution to victims who were
charged in excess of the "Average
DailyRate."
"Florida will continue to aggres-
sively pursue those who take
advantage of its citizens in their
time of greatest need," said Crist.
"We will never tolerate price goug-
ing and will always prosecute cases
to the fullest extent of the law."
The Attorney General's Office
received initial complaints of price
gouging from consumers who
contacted the office's price gouging
hotline, and additional complaint
information was received after the
Attorney General's Economic
Crimes Unit launched an investiga-
tion into the allegations.
According to one complaint, the
Crestview Days Inn overcharged a
Palmetto man who had evacuated.
his home seeking safe shelter from
Hurricane Frances September 3.
The motel charged the man
$116.55 for one night even though
rates averaged $40-$50 during the
month prior to the storm, a markup
greater than 130 percent.
A Leesburg senior citizen who
reserved rooms at the Crestview
Days Inn September 1 received a
confirmed rate of $69.95 but was
instead charged $98 per night, or
40-percent higher than the con-
firmed rate. An evacuating Braden-
ton resident was charged $63 per
night, which increased to $93 per
night after three days. A hotel clerk
informed him the increase was due


to Hurricane Frances.
Under Florida's price-gouging
law, this increase constitutes a
"gross disparity" between the two
rates, subjecting the motel to price-
gouging action.
Victims .of the Crestview Day's
Inn illegal billing practices associat-
ed with Hurricane Frances may file


a claim with the Attorney General's
Office for up to one year from the
date of the settlement.
Today's action marks the Attorney
General's fifth settlement of hurri-
cane-related price-gouging actions
stemming from last year's hurricane
season. Previously, motels in Vero
Beach, West Palm Beach, Naples and

EW SECC forecast help southeast

farmers reduce production risks


TALLAHASSEE Farmers in
the Southeastern United States can
now learn about changes in sea-
sonal climate patterns earlier than
ever, thanks to a new long-term
forecasting system developed by
the Southeast Climate Consortium
(SECC), a partnership among six
universities in Alabama, Florida
and Georgia.
SECC researchers are using
data that has been collected daily
for the past 50 years from 214
weather stations in Alabama, Flori-
da and Georgia to make county-by-
county forecasts that farmers can
view on the Internet. The SECC,
which produces its forecasts at
Florida State University in Tallahas-
see, has issued the first in a series of
quarterly forecasts aimed at help-
ing farmers reduce risks to their
crops and increase their odds of a
successful growing season.
The SECC's new spring outlook
indicates that unseasonably heavy
rain in March has recharged soil
moisture, thereby allowing crops
to flourish.
"March rainfall was up to three
times above normal in Georgia,"
said David Stooksbury, a SECC
researcher and state climatologist
at the University of Georgia in
Athens. "By the middle of April, soil
moisture across most of Georgia is
ranked near the 80th percentile for
this time of the year. This means
that in 80 out of 100 years we
would expect soils to. be drier in
mid-April than they currently are."
Recent heavy rains have also
reduced the risk of wildfires this
season, the SECC spring outlook
said. The outlook is based on the
Keetch Byram Drought Index,
which provides a monthly assess-
ment of wildfire risks in the South-
east.
"The SECC approach to, fore-
casting is based on climate phases
and works great during an El Ni-o
or a La Ni-a phase, but it's less use-
ful during what's called a neutral
phase," Stooksbury said.
"For the past two years, the
Southeast has been in a neutral
phase," said Jim.O'Brien, director
of the Center for Ocean-Atmos-
pheric Prediction Studies at. FSU.
"People often assume that a neu-
tral phase will bring average
weather." But, he said, that's not
true. "Weather can be all over the
place from dry to wet or average


- in a neutral phase. Still, there's
currently no indication of drought
this summer, so chances are good
that crops will have adequate
moisture," he said.
Stooksbury also said that, with
the variability associated with day-
to-day weather during the neutral
phase, a cold spell or two is still
possible across much of the South-
east. .
SECC's Web site, http://agcli-
mate.org, is available to the public
and provides monthly forecasts of
rainfall and temperature for all
counties in Alabama, Florida and
Georgia.
It also allows farmers in some
counties to get personalized pre-
dictions of the probability that their
yields for peanuts, potatoes and
tomatoes will be good, average or
poor. Users can tailor their crop
yield forecasts based on the soil
type of their land, whether or not
they irrigate and their average yield
in the past.
The Web site's highly specific
forecasts are important because
what a producer is experiencing
frequently is quite different than
what's happening in neighboring
counties, said John Bellow, an


SECC extension specialist at FSU.
"We hope that more growers
will use our Web site when they
plan their planting and harvesting,
and prepare for freezes," said Clyde
Fraisse, an extension specialist and
SECC researcher at the University
of Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences, or UF/IFAS,'
in Gainesville. "Growers also can
use it to link to other information
about climate, crop management
and crop insurance."
Jim Jones, a distinguished pro-
fessor of agricultural and biological
engineering at UF/IFAS and SECC
researcher, said additional crop
data is being added to the site to
help farmers.
SECC member institutions are
the University of Florida, Florida
State University, University of
Miami, University of 'Georgia,
Auburn University and University
of Alabama at Huntsville.
SECC is funded by the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Admin-
istration (NOAA), the USDA Coop-
erative States Research, Education
and Extension Service (CSREES)
and the USDA's Risk Management
Agency.

Got Rodents? Get owls as a solution


Do you know any places that
have too many rats? UF Profes-
sor Richard Raid has been con-
cerned that agricultural areas
have relied on chemical rat poi-
sons to manage these furry
fiends.
He's discovered at the Ever-
glades Research and Education
Center a non-chemical way to
help reduce these pests by
encouraging barn owls the
focus of this week's feature col-
umn.
Over the past few weeks, sev-
eral Okeechobee High School
students are learning about pest-
management practices like
using barn owls and nest boxes.
They will be using this idea and
many more in a new late May
event: The Integrated Pest Man-
agement (IPM) Brain Bowl.
They will be showing residents
north of the lake that we can
also get rid of excess rodents
with these fine-feathered
friends.
Rodents, primarily in the
form of rats and mice, cause mil-
lions of dollars in damages
annually to crops grown in the
Everglades Agricultural Area
south of Lake Okeechobee. Not
only do rodents destroy and con-
taminate crops, they frequently
damage equipment and struc-
tures with their gnawing. Rats
also can spread human diseases
such as Plague and Hantavirus.
In 1994, the University of
Florida initiated a nesting box
program in the EAA in an


attempt to enhance native barn
owl populations. One of
nature's most efficient rodent
predators, a nesting pair of barn
owls may easily destroy more
than 1,500 rodents per year,
serving as a sustainable form of
rodent control.
Five different species of owls
are found in Florida. Barn owls
are a species that inhabits areas
much like Okeechobee par-
tially open country, farmlands,
meadows, and towns. They fly
during the night over two miles
from their roosting areas,
searching for small rodents.
These are big birds, standing
14 inches tall, with a heart-
shaped "monkey" face. Barn
owls range in color from white
to buff to a cinnamon-brown.
They get their name from their
common nesting places: Aban-
doned farm buildings like barns,
and pump houses. Sometimes
they are called "ghost" owls
because of their white face and
underbelly feathers. They are
not "hoot" owls; rather, they
make a sound described much
like a screaming person.
Bird atlas data suggests that
the Barn Owl is common and
widespread in the southern
Florida peninsula. But, it also
shows that Okeechobee has
fewer documented cases of
Barn Owl nesting than areas
nearby around our county.
That's kind of surprising, consid-
ering we have the right kind of
habitat for these predators.


In Florida, nesting usually
takes place from March through
July. A pair of owls often pro-
duces two broods per year. The
natural nest sites are secluded
places like tree cavities with a
depth of four feet,, abandoned
machinery, or old buildings.
Although the owls are excel-
lent rodent controls, their nest-
ing habits may harm buildings,
barns, and pump houses on
farms when nesting. By building
and placing nesting boxes along
ditches and canals surrounding
farmlands, Dr. Raid has watched
barn owl populations in the
Glades rise toa point where they
had a significant impact on
rodent pest populations. And
when the barn owls moved into
nest boxes, the owl's destructive
behavior to structures was also
reduced.
Barn owls have quickly
adapted to the nesting box
design promoted by EREC
researchers. More than 90 per-
cent of boxes showed signs they
were being used within a year of
placement. In addition, due to
their safe, protective nature, the
nesting boxes appear to support
an extremely high rate of young
owlet survival.
Although research on the ulti-
mate impact on rodent popula-
tions is currently in progress,
some Everglades growers
already attest to the effective-
ness of the owls by reducing
their use of rodenticides.
Besides learnilig how to build
i .


and place owl nest boxes, IPM
Brain Bowl participants have
dissected sterilized barn owl pel-
lets the undigested regurgitat-
ed remains of the barn owl's
prey. They will follow in the foot-
steps of thousands of other stu-
dents south of the lake that have
learned first-hand what the barn
owls have been eating a les-
son they never forget.
UF Barn Owl project leaders
have involved hundreds of stu-
dent volunteers in the construc-
tion of nesting boxes. Now the
Brain Bowl participants will help
extend this effort to our area and
throughout the Treasure Coast.
This direct participation in assist-
ing a desirable wildlife species
provides bur youth with a sense
of accomplishment and contri-
.bution. All in all, this is a win-
win proposition unless you're
a rodent!
I've placed more information,
including instructions on how to
build your own barn owl nest
box on our Okeechobee Web
page,
http://okeechobee.ifas.ufl.edu.
If you need additional informa-
tion on barn owls, please email
us at okeechobee@ifas.ufl.edu
or call us at (863) 763-6469.

office at 458 Hwy 98 North in

chobee County Master Garden-

Crist praises




Anti-Murder Act


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist praised the
Senate Criminal Justice Commit-
tee for its unanimous approval of
Senate Bill 608, the Anti-Murder
Act of 2005. The legislation is an
effort to protect innocent Floridi-
ans from violent criminals by
requiring a "danger to the com-
munity" hearing for violent felons
who violate their probation.
"Senators have already
shown their commitment to pro-
tecting Florida's children by pass-
ing the Jessica Lunsford Act,
which targets sexual predators.
With this vote, committee mem-
bers have recognized that theAn-
ti-Murder Act will go even further
by making sure sexual predators
and other violent criminals are
kept behind bars in the first
place," said Crist. "We look for-
ward to this bill being heard by
the full Senate."
The Anti-Murder Act was
inspired by the 2004 murders of
Carlie Brucia in Sarasota and six
young adults in Deltona, and
generated renewed focus in the
wake of the tragic slaying of
nine-year-old Jessica Lunsford in
Homosassa and Sarah Lunde in
Ruskin last-month. The suspects
in each murder has a lengthy
criminal history.
The Anti-Murder Act would
create a new definition of
"forcible felony violator" to cover
any probation violator who has a


forcible felony in his or her past.
This group of probation violators
could not be granted bail without
first having a hearing, and before
a court could release a forcible
felony violator the judge would
be required to hold a "danger to
the community" hearing to
assess the offender's likelihood of
committing another crime that
could cause physical harm.
If the court finds that the
forcible felony violator does not
pose a danger to the community,
the judge must enter a written
order stating that fact. The pro-
posal would give judges the
opportunity to affirmatively
decide that a forcible felony vio-
lator is or is not too great a
risk to be released. Offenders
found to be a danger to the com-
munity may not be returned to
probation and must be sen-
tenced to prison.
The Anti-Murder Act has been
endorsed by the Florida Sheriffs
Association, The Florida Police
