.By Mark Young
CLEWISTON United
States Sugar will look to new
leadership following last
month's retirement
announcement from current
U.S. Sugar President and CEO
Robert Dolson.
Stepping into the role of
president and CEO of U.S.
Sugar will be Robert Buker,
, who didn't, have to take a big
leap from his curieni positions
as vice president arfd accord-
ing to Bill White, chairman of
the board for U.S. Sugar,; there
were several factors that made
Mr. Buker's selection a natural


fit for the corporation.
"There are three or four
main reasons," said Mr. White.
"Number one is the fact' that
Buker is already familiar with
U.S. Sugar's re-engineering
project, which is a big project
expected to take several years
to complete. We have some
68 engineers on this project,
some from other parts of the
world because this is a project
that everyone wants to get

Director commits to serving community


By Bill Fabian
The Clewiston Chamber of
Commerce has received a new
executive director after the
retirement of. Jeff Barwick,
whose dedicated service of
more than six years came to an
end last month.
Mr. Barwick had previously
retired before accepting the
position in 1999, and empha-
sizes that though this is his "sec-
ond attempt" at retirement, he
intends to remain actively
involved in Hendry County
tourism.
Assuming the directorial
duties at the chamber will be
Paul W Preston, a former finan-
cial analyst and corporate con-
troller, who began service at the
Chamber on May 2.
, A native of Brookfield, .IL
(just outside of Chicago), Mr.
Preston received a Bachelor of
Science degree in Finance, with
minors in math and accounting,
at Marquette University in Mil-
waukee, WI.


After graduating, he passed
the Certified Management
Accountant exam, and later
went on to continue his educa-
tion at the University of Wiscon-
sin in Milwaukee, where he
received an MBA degree, with
sub-studies in Business Law
and Economics.
Mr. Preston found his way to
Florida in 1992, moving to Coral
Springs where he was named
Director of Finance for a home
health care company. While
residing in Coral Springs, Mr.
Preston was able to discover the
community of Clewiston while
fishing in bass tournaments.
Though he found little success
in those tournaments.
"I never caught anything," he
said, but he never forgot his
impressions of Clewiston dur-
ing his visits. He continued at
the home health care company
in Coral Springs until 1998,
when he returned to Chicago to
teach at the college level.
After a few years of teaching,
Mr. Preston was able to return


to Clewiston during Spring
Break in 2003,' recalling the
"quaintness and progressive-
ness" of the city. This led to the
decision to move to Clewiston
in October 2004.
"I am very grateful for the
confidence the Board has given
.me in offering this position. Jeff
Barwick has done a tremen-
dous job, and is the proverbial
'tough act to follow,'" said Mr.
Preston.
As for his philosophy in serv-
ing as executive director, Mr.
Preston maintains that it is
important to emphasize the fact
that all members of the com-
munity are on the same side,
and should be committed to
openness, and to focusing upon
the community's benefit.
"Many businesses in Clewis-
ton compete, but in order for us
all to be successful, we must all
pull on the same side of the
rope, and continue to be a
City/Chamber of cooperation
See Director Page 12

Paul Preston is hard at work making the transition as the
Clewiston Chamber of Commerce Executive Director. Mr. Pre-
ston will work side by side with current outgoing Executive
Director Jeff Barwick who will be semi-retiring after six years
of devotion to the Clewiston chamber.

Perfumes linked to health problems


For years one of my friends
complained about adverse reac-
tions to perfumes due to chemical
sensitivities. While I sympathized,
I couldn't really understand what
she was going though until last
week when a blast of "body
spray" wafted toward me. My
throat closed up; I was having
trouble breathing; my eyes
watered; I became nauseated.
What was going on?
A little online research
revealed that I am not alone. More
and more people are having bad
reactions to perfumed products
such as body sprays, perfumes,
deodorants, carpet cleaners and
air fresheners.
There are several reasons for
the increase in bad reactions. One
is simply that there are more
scented products- on the market.
Body sprays are being marketed
to both men and women. And the
companies that make these prod-
ucts are targeting younger con-
sumers, who prefer stronger
scents. Younger consumers may
also be a little more liberal with
applying the sprays. All of this


A
Healthier
Life


with Katrina Elsken


means there are more perfumed
products in the market place and
in the air.
Another potential health haz-
ard is the ingredients in the per-
fumes. Traditionally, perfumes
were made from natural sub-
stances, and only a tiny percent-
age of the population is allergic to
nature's perfumes like citrus or
rose oil.
Today more and more scented
products are synthetic made
from things like petroleum prod-
ucts. Some of the ingredients'
used are indeed toxic and
depending on your level of sensi-
tivity, can cause physical discom-
fort.


Research also shows that
chemical sensitivity can develop
over time, after repeated expo-
sure to a toxin. You might not
have symptoms the first few times
you are exposed, but develop
them after repeated exposure.
According to a study conduct-
ed in the 1990s by the Environ-
mental Protection Agency, the
percentage of the population suf-
fering from adverse reaction to
perfumed products is increasing.
They attribute this in part to the
increase in scented products.
Another problem might be the
combination of the toxins in the
perfumes with other toxins
already in the environment, such
as cigarette smoke.
What can you do about the sit-
uation?
Be considerate: If you work
in an office with many workers
sharing the same open space,
don't wear perfumes or body
sprays. *
Use moderation. If you wear
perfumes or body sprays, use just
a small amount.
Complain: If you have a bad


reaction to a perfume or scented
product, report it to the Food and
Drug Administration. If the FDA
receives enough complaints
about a product, they will investi-
gate the problem. To report an
adverse reaction to the FDA, call
FDA's Office of Cosmetics and
Colors at '1-202-401-9725, or file
online. You may also send your
report in writing to: FDA, Office of
Cosmetics and Colors (HFS-100),
200 C St., SW, Washington, DC
20204.
Ask for compassion: Some
chemically-sensitive people can't
attend church services due to the
perfume worn by others there. To
help, pastors may ask their con-
gregation to forego perfume on
the days they attend church serv-
ices.
Avoid known problem
areas: If you have a bad reaction
to perfumes, stay out of perfume
departments in stores and let
store managers know that you
will not shop at their store if they
post "perfume sample" sprays in
other areas of the store.

My mom can turn the sim-
plest things into special memo-
ry. When she bought a cup
shaped like an: elephant .with a
trunk for. spoui fromr- which, to.
drink, all four of us children
wanted to drink' out of it. We
. argued over who would get to
use it so much that Mom said we
could only use it on our birthday.


S every birthday I remember get-
ting the treat of being able to
drink from the elephant cup. A
small thing-but it was special to
all of us.
Now at 85 years, my mom
continues to bring special mem-
ories into our lives and is a bless-
ing to her family.
We love you Mom (Nannie),
Your children, your grandchil-
dren, and your great grandchil-
dren.

4 OPINION Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee Thursday, May 12,2005

Pesky critters
This is for the mosquito people. I am a resident of Clewiston.
Why is that you wait until the mosquitoes get so bad before you
start spraying? I can't go-outside my yard because the mosquitoes
are biting me.and it's not even dark. We need you to start spraying
before it gets bad.
Bad cop, no doughnut
This is Wednesday, May 4, and we're traveling on (U.S.) 27
about 2:10. I thought they were passing a new law about riding in
the left hand lane blocking traffic when you should get over. Well.,
we got behind a Hendry County sheriff in a jeep going 50 miles per
hour in a 65, blocking everybody making everybody go around
him while he was talking on his phone. They don't give a cop a tick-
et for doing the same thing that you would give other people a tick-
et for? Well, he sure deserves one.

No more business for you
I do not understand how a local retail store can make any
money. On Monday I went to purchase a computer and was told
that I had spent too much money there in the last three days and
that I would not be able to purchase the computer. I go to this store.
practically every day and do my shopping. Yes I do spend a lot of
money there but they offer everything in one place. I have never
bounced a check there and I do understand that they have to pro-
tect themselves against such things. But it's as if you are being pun-
ished for wanting to give them money. I know how to manage my
checkbook and don't need them to inform me and everyone else
in line how much I have spent in 3 days. The way it seems is there
really isn't a one stop shopping, because if you want to buy your
groceries, tires, computer or anything else you best do it over a peri-
od of a month or more because they don't want your- money all at
one time. Why would you sell a $500 computer and everything else
imaginable if people can'tbuy it and other things at the same time. I
wanted a computer that night as my daughter's birthday is Satur-
day, well you've lost my $500 and any other future purchases from
me. I'll do my grocery shopping elsewhere in town and order any-
thing else I might need online.

Happy Mother's Day
I would like to salute all mothers who participated in that
moment of time when they became a mother when they
gave birth.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. Indeed, we also raise our
hand in salute to all mothers who have offered so much selfless
sacrifce to bring life, love, and compassion to all of us. Happy
Mother'sDayl


Pet corner


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. How do you
feel about de-clawing cats? And at
what age is it the best time for this
surgery? Thanks Doc. Rosemary in
Belle Glade.
A: Hey there Rosemary. Hmm,
how do I feel about de-clawing
cats? Well, I would really prefer to
not do it! However, that isn't entire-
ly realistic. I would prefer to de-
claw a cat, rather than see it get
kicked out of the house for scratch-
ing the new furniture.
And, the very best time to do
this surgery is at the same time as
spaying or neutering. Ideally, any-
time from three to six months of
age. This way, they are small and
recover much easier. Also you save
money, as it is two procedures with
one anesthesia.
Great question Rosemary! Take
care, Doc Savvy.

Q: Dear Doc Savvy. My son
Angel came home with a new
puppy last week. We took him to
the veterinarian because he started
to loose hair. We found out he has
mange that he was born with, and
will need-to have a special dip put
on him once a week for a long.
time. Is there something we could
have done differently? And, will it
come back again? .
Thank you. Maria, in Lake
Worth.
A: Hello Maria. It sounds like
both you and your son are very car-
ing for taking in this puppy. Unfor-
tunately there was nothing you
could have done to prevent this.
This type of. mange is called


DocSavvy,

Demodex, and it is hereditary. If the
mother dog has it, then she should
not breed because the puppies will
have it too. Usually a pup breaks
with it for the first time during a
period of stress like in this case,
going to a new home. The diagno-
sis is with a skin scraping and
microscopic diagnosis. Treatment
can range from a topical cream to
bathing, dipping and oral medica-
tions. In most cases.Maria, it does
get better. Also it can come back
later in life, and the treatments will
have to be repeated. Have a conver-
sation with your veterinarian about
cost, treatments, and recurrence so
you will knowwhat to expect.
Good Luck Maria. Doc Savvy.

Letters to the Editor


Contractors
should act now
Letter to the Editor:
A year has come and passed
since the reorganization of the
Hendry County Construction
Licensing Board. The board con-
sists of nine members, some orig-
inal members, as well as New
Contractors and New Consumers.
As chairman, I would like to thank
all the members, and the county
staff for their time and contribu-
tion to this board.
On February 24, 2005 history
was made at the monthly meeting
when disciplinary' action was
taken upon a locally licensed spe-
cialty contractor for various per-
mitting and inspection infrac-
tions, by then acting building
official, Mr. Kenneth Bennett.
Since the retirement of Easton
Burchard, in April, Mr. Bennett
has taken the position of Head
Building Official, and is doing a
superb job; the Board and the
Community wish him well in all
of his endeavors.
We have held hearings on
other complaints, and in some
cases, have had to have continu-
ances in order to obtain legal rep-.
resentation, and also, have had to
take action against others; we are
now in the process of scheduling
more hearings, for this month.
As of November 2004 when
the Hendry County Board of
County Commissioners approved
the new ordinance, there were
some trade categories added and
-these new fields of trade will
require licensure, as do the cate-
gories previously included. The


Board of County Commissioners
upon the recommendation of the
Licensing Board, allowed a One-
Year Grace Period from Novem-
ber 2004 to November 2005; to
apply for and take the necessary
test, appropriate for the particular
trade. This grace period is only for
those whom have been in busi-
ness prior to the new ordinance.
The board has already
received many applications for
newly licensed trades, some of
which we have approved, and
some of which we have put on a
probationary status. If locally
owned contracting businesses
are not licensed at this time, they
can go to the Hendry County
Building Department, and apply
for a license; the application must.
be made prior to testing to the
Hendry County Building Depart-
ment so that the Department can
sponsor the candidates to take the
test. The Board can issue a proba-
tionary license prior to the appli-
cant taking the test. It is highly rec-
ommended that you do so, as
soon as possible, because the
grace period is coming to a close
in a few months. And it would be
considered unlicensed activity for
anyone performing a contracting
business without a license, which
is a felony in the state of Florida,
and you would be, forwarded to
the State Department of Business
and Professional Regulations.
A list ofrequired trade licenses
is available at the Building Depart-
ment.
State certified, registered, and
specialty contractors have always
been required to comply with the
Hendry County Ordinance, con-
tractors (other than State Ce'rti-


fled) from adjoining counties, are
required to comply, and request a
Hendry County Certificate of
Competency, which will come
before the Construction Licensing
Board for approval, after applica-
tion to the Building Department
has been processed.
It is important for properly
Licensed Contractors, Building
Department officials, and citizens,
to observe and follow all the
proper procedures, so that the
consumer will be protected in
Hendry County.
If anyone needs assistance or,
wishes to file a complaint against
a contractor, you can contact the
Hendry County Building Depart-
ment, or it's Code Enforcement
Division at (863) 675-5245.
If you need to check on a State
Certified or State Registered Con-
tractor you can contact the
Department of Professional Regu-
lations.
Board meetings are held in the
Board of County Commissioners
Chambers,
6:30 p.m. the fourth Thursday
of each month, which are open to
the public.
Richard Yoraschek
Chairman
Hendry County Construction
Licensing Board

Doing our part to keep things from getting out of hand


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
We never know when some-
thing will come out of the blue to
strike us. I used to work with per-
sons convicted
of alcohol and
drug-related
offenses.
They'd tell me
that they were of th"
stopped for
having a burnt-
out taillight
that they had
been meaning Rev.Samuel
to get fixed. S. Thomas
One thing one a
led to another, and the faulty tail-
light would lead to a conviction
for driving under the influence.
That meant a suspended license,
that meant problems getting to
work and higher insurance rates,
that meant the rest of the family
was really upset and the boss
wasn't going to take any more
excuses, and the lawyer demand-
ed his money up front.
We have had- some more
shootings lately. In one case, a
youngster was going to play.a


prank on a senior citizen; in
another case a youngster tried to
flee when he was driving without
a license and potentially endan-
gering others. I am sure that
nobody but nobody intended
either situation to get out of hand,.
but that's what seemed to have
'happened.
Two men in Broward County
were arguing outside of a theater.
One struck the other and when
he fell, he suffered a fatal injury. I
had to ask myself, "Over what?"
In reality, I. don't know, but
understand that the men were
relative strangers, according to
news reports. I wonder what
could have been important
enough to cause one or both of
them to lose perspective on what
was going on that evening as they
waited for the movies to open. I
suspect that I know their answers
would be "if I had it to do all over
again."
Broken taillights or attacks on,
pranksters or attempts to flee
begin a long, long time before
.they actually happen. They are
formed in attitudes that are
taught, or learned from others.
When there is a car problem, it is
easy to "letit slide," and put it off


until much, much later. Older
people are less likely to retaliate
for pranks, but every now and
again you may guess wrong.
Maybe if you flee from authori-
ties, you'll get away with it and'
that will be the end of the prob-
lem, but maybe not.
Human beings depend on
their abilities to predict how oth-
ers will act and react, but some-
times they're wrong and the con-
sequences are tragic. The best
bet is to meet our obligations, to
respect others, to respect authori-
ty, to love our neighbors no mat-
ter how well we think we can
predict what will happen.
Tragedies often begin with
something very simple that
quickly leads to something else
and soon has people involved in
life-threatening situations. There
is an admonition in scriptures:
"Make friends with your adver-
sary quickly," (Matthew 5:25) for
your accuser may hand you over
to the judge and the judge may
hand you over to the guard and
you'll wind up in prison and
you'll never get out until you've
paid the last penny (and that may
be very, very hard to do because
they don't pay much for prison

Virthavious Robinson, lyanna


labor these days!).'
The idea, of course, is to take
things in hand before they get out
of hand, and when they can be
resolved peacefully, quietly, and
calmly. In our homes, on our
streets, in our communities, and
among nations, things seem to
escalate very rapidly, and con-
frontations happen all too soon.
I'd venture to say that in every
case,, or nearly so, nobody stops
to ask, "What is this really
about?" or "Is it reallyworth it?"
An attorney of my 'acquain-
tance told me that he was suing a
hotel for several thousands of
dollats.. His client had a coat
stolen ;while she stayed there.
When-she reported it, all the staff
did was quote the limits of their
liability and treated her in a very
abrupt way. "All she wanted was
an apology or some indication
that they were sorry that it hap-
pened," he said. Now both sides
are going to the limit and seeking
the last penny.
Our responsibility is to our
. children and ourselves to teach
respect and kindness. It may be
lifesaving literally!


Robinson, and all born this week
of May 10. God bless each of you.

Sick and shut-ins
Remember to visit the sick and
shut-ins in the hospitals, health
care centers and their homes. A
visit will help make their day.
Remember to pray for the
bereaved families in the commu-
nity and surrounding areas. There
are many among us. Pray for
those incarcerated. Prayer
changes all things.

Crist hails unanimous

passage of Anti-Looting Bill


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist hailed the
Legislature's unanimous passage
of an anti-looting bill proposed by
the Attorney General to protect
homeowners and businesses in
areas ravaged by hurricanes and
other disasters. The bill, spon-
sored by Senator Dave Aronberg
and Representative Holly Benson,
was passed by the Senate 40-0 fol-
lowing the 111-0 approval in the
House.
If approved by Governor Bush,
the bill will increase penalties for
looting during any state of emer-
gency declared by the Governor.
"This legislation sends a strong
message to those low enough to
steal from disaster victims," said
Crist. "Senator Aronberg and Rep-
resentative Benson deserve great
credit for leading this good bill
through the legislative process.
There is only so much we can do
to control nature's ability to create
victims, but this new law shows
that much can be done to stop
criminals from re-victimizing vul-
nerable citizens."
The legislation, which was
adopted as House Bill 207, was
prompted by Florida's record-set-
ting 2004 hurricane season. It will
increase penalties for certain
offenses committed during a
declared emergency by reclassify-
ing the degree of offenses, so that
a burglary that might otherwise
be classified as a second-degree


felony would instead become a
first-degree felony with a maxi-
mum penalty of 30 years in
prison.
"Theft is bad enough already,
but theft during a time of emer-
gency is even worse. Taking
advantage of people who are at
their most vulnerable such as
in the aftermath of one or more
hurricanes, is a particularly despi-
cable crime that merits this
tougher penalty," Senator Aron-
berg said.
"In the aftermath of the devas-
tating hurricanes of 2004, homes
and businesses across the state
were. left vulnerable to intruders
and countless reports of looting,"
said Representative Benson. "In
an effort to deter such criminal
acts, HB 207 tightens criminal
penalties against looting during
declared emergencies."
The anti-looting bill is a com-
ponent of Crist's' two-part legisla-
tive proposal to address situations
that arise during a declared state
of emergency. The other meas-
ure, dealing with price gouging,
would prohibit the sale of goods
or services during an emergency
by anyone who does not have a
valid occupational license, mak-
ing a violation a second-degree
misdemeanor. That bill was
approved unanimously by the
Senate April 21, and a companion
measure has cleared all four of its
House committees without a dis-
senting vote.

Faith in Action: Heart Beats and Hands


How does FAITH IN ACTION
make a difference in your commu-
nity? One way is by providing vol-
unteer services that would normal-
ly cost the community over
$82,000 a year. It is estimated that
the national value of services pro-
vided by volunteers is $17 per hour.
Some volunteer services, however,
'create more long-term caring
friendships that are truly priceless.
The generosity of the communi-
ty doesn't always come in the form
of hands-on volunteer care-giving
, duties. Sometimes a business or
,businesses pitch in and do what
others simply do not have the
expertise to do. The following is a
true FAITH IN ACTION story from
our own community.
Ms. E. was referred to FAITH IN
ACTION for any assistance the pro-
: gram could provide. She had been
recently widowed, was behind on
her bills, unable to aftord-her daily
medications, and to make matters
-worse, the brakes had gone out on
her vehicle, leaving her without
Transportation. She received no


public assistance and had a stroke
early in life, which resulted in her
right side being partially paralyzed.
FAITH IN ACTION made refer-
rals to other local agencies to begin
the process of help for Ms. E. for
grief counseling,: medication assis-
tance and credit counseling to
assist her with budgeting. The one
.challenge left was her vehicle.
With no. extra finances the car
would have to stay parked, and Ms.
E. would have to rely on whomev-
er she could for doctor visits, gro-
cery shopping and other necessary
trips.
The staff at FAITH IN ACTION
began making phone calls to local
businesses to get the brakes
repaired on the vehicle. Three dedi-
cated business owners, who wish
to.remain anonymous, stepped up
to help. One donated the time and.
expense of towing her vehicle to
the garage. The garage owner then
donated mechanics' time to repair
the brakes-with materials donated
by still another business. Within
two days her vehicle was running,


and Ms. E. had very gratefully
regained some measure of inde-
pendence. Every act of human
kindness can make a difference in
another person's life, as was
shown in this true example. Heart-
felt thanks go out to these everyday
heroes who define the term, "Faith
in Action."
If you know of someone who
may need assistance or would like
to become a FAITH IN ACTION yol-
unteer please call Barbara Marshall
at (863) 675-1446 or Liz Taylor at
(863) 983-7088. FAITH IN ACTION
is a Senior Connections of South-
west Florida program with funding
from the United Way of Hendry &
Glades Counties and the Robert
Wood Johnson Foundation. Senior
Connections of Southwest Florida,
Inc., a United Way partner agency,
receives state and federal grants
through the Area Agency bn Agifig
for SW FL, Dept. of Elder Affairs,
and donations from individuals
and groups in order-to assist the
elderly in our rural communities
maintain a better quality of life.

Other Hendry family helped area grow


As told to

MaryAnn Morris
By Judge William Hendry
OKEECHOBEE The Hendry
family made its way east from
Arcadia to Okeechobee to become
part of the history of Okeechobee
County. Judge William Hendry,
retired chief judge of the Nine-
teenth Judicial circuit, now a senior
judge for the Circuit remembers:
"James J. (Jack) Hendry, my
grandfather, came east from Arca-
dia sometime in the early 1900s. He
was born Joshua Creek, later the
family, moved to Venus. They
always had a cattle ranch where
they lived. Here in Okeechobee
County, too. We're not the Hendry
County Hendrys. No relation at all.
"Eventually, my grandfather had
a fishing business in Lakeport. That
was 1912.
"My dad, William J. Hendry,
served in World War I, when he
came home on leave it was to
Lakeport. My dad and his brothers
worked in my grandfather's fishing
business. My grandfather had the
fishing boat and crew and his boys
worked for him. He also had 40
acres on Fisheating Creek.
"My dad really had three jobs.
All he did was work. He owned a
camp in Buckhead Ridge in the
1930s and 40s called Keego Sports
Fishing Camp. It was right across
SR 70 from where the Buckhead
Ridge Fire Station is now. My Uncle
Cab (Calvin Hendry) managed it
for my dad. My dad's other broth-
ers, Russell and Albert, worked the
cattle and fish business with my
dad. My dad would work the fish
business during the week and cat-
Stile on the weekends.
"My dad bought a house in
Okeechobee in 1923 off South Par-
rot near where Skip's Barbeque is
now and had his fish business next
door. I went through school here in
Okeechobee. Few roads, even in
downtown were paved when we
were growing up. Even close to the
courthouse, not all the roads in

town were paved. We went to
school in the building where the
Freshman Campus is now.
"In grade school no one really
wore shoes back then. In high
school you did, but not grade
school. Growing up we made our
own fun. We had chores to do. I
worked in my dad's fish business,
which was here in town off South
Parrott by then. But Saturday or
Sunday afternoons, someone.
would show up over in the park
(Flagler Park) and it didn't take too
long to get a game going. There
were several grocery stores in
town when I was growing up:
Wise's on South Park, McCarthy's
on North Park and Raulerson's at
the corner of South Park and Har-
graves' in East Okeechobee.
"After high school and the mili-
tary, I went on to college to the Uni-
versity of Florida in Gainesville and
earned a degree in agriculture.
Later, I went to law school there. I
remember the road from the cam-
pus into downtown Gainesville
was a two-lane dirt road with big
live oak trees arching over it com-
pletely. I've been back since, but I
don't recognize anything, so much
has changed.
"I grew up in Okeechobee. The
house I grew up in was built in
1924. It sat about a block from the
courthouse near the old jail. My
mother's father was contractor on
the building of the old courthouse.
Thatwas 1926 to 1927.
"My dad served in the State Leg-
islature from 1941 to 1951. He had
a nickname, too. He stood 6 foot 5
inches tall and the Seminoles
called him "Big Boy" and it stuck."

By Ideybis Gonzalez
On Friday April 29, fourth
grade students at Westside Ele-
mentary performed a musical
play "We Come From Every-
where". The students' play con-
sisted of children on a cross train
wishing they were going on a
world-wide adventure, instead,


they soon discovered the world
can be found in the roots of the
people on the train.
The play celebrated the
diverse origins of Americans and
Native Americans to immigrants
from all over the globe and the
opportunities and challenges
such diversity presents.

Nelson bill would reward states that track sex predators by satellite


MIAMI Encouraged by
Florida lawmakers' quick pas-
sage of a state bill that aims to
improve tracking of sex offend-
ers, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson has
unveiled legislation to provide
federal funding for Florida and
other states that adopt similar
programs.
Nelson's bill would give up to
$30 million in grants to support
states with programs that get
tougher on those convicted of
preying on children by tracking
them with satellites, if they get
out of prison. A measure that just
passed in Florida requires 25-
year minimum prison terms for
those convicted of sex crimes
against children under 12, and
lifetime tracking by global posi-
tioning satellites (GPS) once out-
side prison.
The Florida law was prompt-
ed by the abduction and killing of
9-year-old Jessica Lunsford,
whose body was found March 19
near her Homosassa home. The
slaying of a second girl, Sarah
Lunde, 13, of Ruskin, whose
body was found April 16, has-
tened passage of the bill, called
the Jessica Lunsford Act. In both
cases, convicted sex offenders
have been accused.
"To be effective, however,
tough laws must be properly,
funded," Nelson said, speaking
about his bill that would require
the U.S. attorney general to over-
see $10 million in grants this
year, and $20 million next year,
for states that use GPS monitor-
ing of sex offenders.
In the U.S., there are an esti-
mated 380,000 registered sex
offenders. But thousands have
disappeared, authorities say.
Nelson will present the bill -
The Sexual Predator Monitoring
Act to the American Civil Lib-
erties Union Foundation at a 7


p.m. Saturday dinner in Miami,
where the group is commemo-
rating its 40th anniversary; and,
also honoring U.S. Rep. Alcee
Hastings with a public-service
award named for a crusading for-
mer St. Petersburg Times editor,
Nelson Poynter.
The ACLU promotes itself as a
nonpartisan organization. And
the group often opposes govern-
ment restraints on individual lib-
erties. But it supports GPS moni-
toring of sexual predators.
The technology consists of
satellite systems and a tracking
device worn around the ankle.
When the wearer of the device is
in the wrong place, parole offi-
cers and police can be alerted.
Attached is a copy of Nelson's
legislation, and an AP back-
ground article.

109TH CONGRESS
1ST SESSION
A BILL to provide state and
local governments with financial
assistance that will increase their
ability and effectiveness in moni-
toring convicted sex offenders by
developing and implementing a
program using global positioning
systems to monitor convicted
sexual offenders or sexual preda-
tors released from confinement.
. IN THE SENATE OF THE
UNITED STATES
Mr. NELSON of Florida intro-
duced the following BILL:
To provide state and local gov-
ernments with financial assis-
tance that will increase their abil-
ity and effectiveness in
monitoring convicted sex offend'-
ers by developing and imple-
menting a program using global
positioning systems to monitor
convicted sexual offenders or
sexual predators released from
confinementL
Be it enacted by the Senate
and House of Representatives of


the United States of America in
Congress assembled.
SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.
This Act may be cited as the
"Sexual Predator Monitoring Act
of 2005".
SEC. 2. FINDINGS.
Congress finds that:
(1) in recent years we have
seen multiple cases of convicted
sexual offenders serving proba-
tion abducting and murdering
young children;
(2) several states have begun
the development and implemen-
tation of outfitting convicted sex-
ual offenders with Global Posi-
tioning Systems to track their
movements while on probation;
(3) the employment of these
devices will assist law enforce-
ment in tracking the movements
and location of probationers in
real time to within 10 ft. of their
location;
(4) Global Positioning System
tracking will permit law enforce-
ment to ensure that convicted
sex offenders do not go to areas
restricted according to the terms
of their probation;
(5) Global Positioning Sys-
tems will serve to deter sexual
predators from re-offending as.
they will know that their move-
ments are monitored and
tracked by law enforcement; and
(6) in the event that a conviet-
ed sexual offender commits an
additional sex offense while on
probation and monitored with a
Global Positioning System, the
Global Positioning System tech-
nology will aid law enforcement
in the investigation of these
crimes by quickly determining
the location of sexual offenders
-within the area of the suspected
crime.
SEC. 3. SEXUAL PREDATOR
MONITORING PROGRAM.

(1) IN GENERAL The Attor-


ney General is authorized to

which assistance under this Act
is sought; and
(B) provide such additional
assurances as the Attorney Gen-
eral determines to'be essential to
ensure compliance with the
requirements of this Act.
SEC. 4. PROPORTIONAL
SHARE
The Attorney General shall
ensure that each State with eligi-
ble programs receives a propor-
tional share of funding under this
Act based on the total number of
eligible states and the population
of sex offenders to be monitored
with global positioning systems
in those States.
SEC. 5. DEFINITION

offender" means an offender 18
years of age or older who com-
mits a sexual offense against a

USDA announces approval of county eligibility


GAINESVILLE Levy County
was recently approved as eligible
to participate in,the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture's (USDA) Live-
stock Assistance Program (LAP),
announced Kevin Kelley, state
executive director for the Farm Ser-
vice Agency. This brings the total
number of eligible counties in
Florida to forty-two, which is equiv-
alent to 63 percent of the state.
"This program provides much
needed relief to livestock produc-
ers who had grazing losses due to
drought, severe weather and relat-
ed causes," said Kelley.
Producers of dairy and beef cat-
tle; bison and beefalo; goats;
swine; sheep; and certain equine,
elk and reindeer are now eligible to
participate in LAP.
To be eligible for LAP, a produc-
er's grazing land must be located in
a county designated as a primary
disaster under a Presidential or Sec-


retarial disaster declaration. The
county must have been approved
as a primary disaster county on or
after Jan. 1, 2003, for a disaster
occurring through Dec. 31, 2004.
To be approved, a county must
also have suffered a 40 percent or
greater loss of available grazing for
at least three consecutive months
as a result of damage caused by a
natural disaster.
Another eligibility requirement
is that a producer must have
owned their livestock during cer-
tain timeframes, which FSA refers
to as payment periods. Based on
Florida FSA County Committee rec-
ommendations approved by the
FSA State Committee, the follow-
ing lists LAP payment periods,
along with eligible counties for cal-
endaryear 2004:
March 1 July 31 Collier,
DeSoto, Hardee, Hendry, Hillsbor-
ough, and Sarasota Counties;


March 1 August 31 Levy,
Palm Beach and Volusia Counties;
March 15 -July 15 -Alachua,
Bradford, Dixie, and Gilchrist
Counties.
March 15 July 31 Baker
and Columbia Counties;
March 15 August 31 -
Pasco, Polk and Hernando Coun-
ties;
March 15 September 15 -
Martin and Okeechobee Counties;
April 1 July 31 Lafayette,
Madison and Taylor Counties;
April 1 August 15 Union
County;
April 1 September 30 Indi-
an River and Lee Counties
April 15 July 15 Santa
Rosa County;
May 15 November 15 -
Broward, Glades, Highlands, and
St. Lucie Counties;
June 1 October 31 Orange
County;


June 1 November 15 Cit-
rus and Sumter Counties;
June 15 October 31 Duval,
Nassau County;
June 15 November 15 -
Osceola and Brevard Counties;
July 1 November 15 Char-
lotte County;
August 1 November 15 -
Lake County;
August 15 November 15 -
Marion and Seminole Counties.
Santa Rosa County livestock
producers who owned livestock
from June 1 though Oct. 31, 2003
may also be eligible for LAP if they
had grazing losses due to drought,
severe weather and related causes.
A. county may meet eligibility
requirements for both 2003 and
2004; however, a producer in that
county may receive benefits for
only one of those calendar years.
Assistance will not be available in
contiguous counties.


Authorized by the Military Con-
struction and Appropriations and
Emergency Hurricane Supplemen-
tal Appropriations Act, 2005 (2005
Act), the programs also provide
that producers who reduced the
number of livestock because of a
natural disaster shall not be penal-
ized for those reductions. Produc-
ers will receive compensation for
the entire disaster payment period.
Benefits will be based on the num-
ber of livestock the producer
would have owned if the disaster
had not occurred. For livestock that
were sold in the course of routine
business, producers will receive
benefits for those animals only up
to the date of sale.
More details on LAP and other
disaster assistance programs are
available on USDA's Web site,
http://disaster.fsa.usda.gov/ or at
local USDA Service Centers and
FSA County Offices.

Livestock imports restricted


TALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bronson
has announced the placement of
restrictions on the importation of
animals from states affected with
Vesicular Stomatitis following a
confirmed case in New Mexico, the
first such case reported in the Unit-
ed States this year.
Vesicular Stomatitis is a highly
contagious, viral disease that
affects horses,. cattle, swine and
occasionally sheep, goats and deer.
The virus can also cause flu-like
symptoms in people working with
infected animals.
Symptoms on animals include
blister-like lesions in the mouth, on
the tongue, lips, nostrils, hooves
and teats. While the virus doesn't
usually kill the animals, it does


result in significant weight loss and
milk production loss. It is also diffi-
cult to distinguish between this
virus and foot and mouth disease,
a' devastating livestock disease
found outside the United States.
States and other countries often
impose movement restrictions on
animals from Vesicular Stomatitis
affected areas.
Last week, the USDA National
Veterinary Services Laboratories
confirmed the finding of two posi-
tive horses with clinical signs on a
cattle and horse ranch in Grant
County, New Mexico.
"I'm pleased to see that New
Mexico has taken immediate
action to hold animals on the
affected premises," Mr. Bronson
said, "but the possibility that this
disease could be in other areas


makes it imperative that we have
rules in place to prevent the disease
from being imported into Florida."
Florida requires veterinary
inspection of susceptible animals
coming from states affected with
Vesicular Stomatitis. Hoofed ani-
mals entering Florida from New
Mexico will require prior permis-
sion for entry and must be accom-
panied by an official certificate of
veterinary inspection stating that
they are free of clinical signs of this
disease and have not been
exposed nor located within 10
miles of a positive premises within-
the previous 30 days. Susceptible
animals will also be required to
have documentation to show they
have been tested and found nega-
tive within 10 days of movement to
Florida.


Florida Hall of Fame seeks nominations


The Florida Women's Hall
of Fame is now being accepted
by the Florida Commission on
the Status of Women. Since its
inception in 1982, the Hall of
Fame has recognized and hon-
ored Florida women who,
through their lives and works,
have made significant contri-
butions to the improvement of
life for all citizens of the state.
The commission accepts
nominations to the Hall of
Fame annually between April 1
and July 15. Following deliber-
ations, the commission will
recommend 10 nominees to
Governor Jeb Bush, who will
select up to three women for
induction into the Hall in a
March ceremony.
Last year's inductees were


Shirley D. Coletti, an advocate
for substance abusing women
and their families, and a driv-
ing force behind the founding
of Operation PAR (Parental
Awareness and Responsibili-
ty); Marion P. Hammer, a
nationally renowned
firearms/civil rights advocate
and the first woman president
of the National Rifle Associa-
tion (NRA), Hammer created
the highly acclaimed "Eddie
Eagle Gun Safety" program;
and Judith Kersey, first woman
guidance systems engineer in
the history of NASA, Kennedy
Space Center, and a strong
advocate for women in science
and engineering.
"The Florida Commission
on the Status of Women is


proud to honor these out-
standing women who mean so
much to our state and our his-
tory," said Hall of Fame Com-
mittee Chair Anita Mitchell.
"Each year it is more difficult
to choose 10 finalists to send
to the Governor because of the
many superb nominations we
receive."
Nomination forms may be
obtained by writing: The Flori-
da Commission on the Status
of Women, Office of the Attor-
ney General, PL-01, The Capi-
tol, Tallahassee, FL 32399-
1050, or by calling (850)
414-3300. Forms are also avail-
able for download on the
Commission Web site at

MDA honors
TUCSON, Ariz., The Mus-
cular Dystrophy Association has,
created a competitive postdoctor-
al fellowship to honor former
MDA National Goodwill Amlbas-
sador Mattie Stepanek, who died
last June from complications
associated with his rare neuro-
muscular disease, mitochondrial
myopathy (MM).
The Mattie Stepanek Postdoc-
toral Research Fellowship pro-
vides a salary stipend of $60,000
per year for two years to a post-
doctoral fellow specializing in
MM research. Application forms.
are available at
www.mdausa.org/research/rrga-
form.html.
MM causes generalized mus-
cle weakness and can affect res-
piration, heart rate, blood pres-
sure, speech, swallowing and


late goodwill
digestion. Stepanek's case
required a ventilator and supple-
mental oxygen as well as a power
wheelchair. The 13-year-old from
Maryland became world-famous
for his advocacy of peace and his
best-selling "Heartsongs" poetry
books, as well as his eloquent
presentations for MDA.
The fellowship is designed to
draw new scientists into MDA's
extensive worldwide research
program and to expand its efforts
to defeat mitochondrial myopa-
thy. MDA currently, funds nearly
400 research teams worldwide
seeking cures and treatments for
more than 40 neuromuscular dis-
eases.
"We're on the cutting edge of
medical science, and the Mattie
Stepanek Postdoctoral Research
Fellowship will increase the num-


ambassador
ber of brilliant minds working to
eradicate mitochondrial myopa-
thy," MDA President and CEO
Robert Ross said. "The fellowship
is a tribute to my dear friend, Mat-
tie, who lived his life with much
meaning and purpose, despite
the devastating effects of this dis-
ease."
In addition to its research pro-
gram, MDA serves adults and
children affected by neuromus-
cular diseases at 235 MDA clinics
nationwide, and through assis-
tance with purchase of wheel-
chairs, leg braces and assistive
communication devices, educa-
tional information, support
groups and summer camps.
The Association's programs
are funded almost entirely by
individual private.contributors.


Attorney General issues consumer alert


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist issued a con-
sumer alert, warning Floridians
about the unauthorized solicitation
of funds by Protect and Serve.USA,
an organization that is using the
picture of murder victim Jessica
Lunsford to collect money.
The organization has placed
pictures of Jessica and John Evan-
der Couey, the man accused of her
murder, on approximately 500 col-
lection boxes placed in conven-
ience stores across the state. The
boxes also carry a statement that
asks consumers to donate $1 to
stop sexual predators. Jessica's pic-
ture is being used without the per-
mission of her father, Mark
Lunsford.
"This is absolutely uncon-
scionable," said Crist. "To use a
deceased child's picture without
the parent's, permission is despica-
ble. Consumers need to be aware
that this organization is not con-
nected with the Lunsford family in
any way, and appears to be doing
nothing more than capitalizing on
a tragedy that shocked our eQtire
state,"
The solicitation could result in


civil or criminal actions against the
organization. The Attorney Gener-
al's Office has launched a formal
investigation under the Deceptive


and Unfair Trade Practices statute
and is working closely with the
Tampa Police Department in that
agency's investigative efforts.

May Is National Osteoporosis Month


DOVER, DE Osteoporosis
affects an estimated 44 million
people in the United States,
according to the National Osteo-
porosis Foundation (NOF). In
honor of National Osteoporosis
Awareness Month, the staff at
General Nutritiori Center of Dover
is offering advice on how to get
enough calcium in your diet;
which has been identified as a key
component in reducing the risk of
the disease.
Nearly 50 percent of women
and 25 percent of men over the
age of 50 will have an osteoporo-
sis-related fracture in their
remaining lifetime, according to
the NOF. Along with weight-bear-
ing exercise, NOF recommends a
diet rich in vitamin D and calcium
to help prevent this bone-weak-
ening disease.
"Ninety-nine percent of the
calcium in your body is found in
the bones and teeth where it is an
essential structural component,"
said Rachel Jones, MS, RD, nutri-
tionist at GNC.
If your calcium intake is too
low to meet metabolic demands,
your body's control mechanisms
will pull calcium out of your
bones to maintain a healthy sup-
ply and to keep your cells func-
tioning normally.
"In other words, the rest of
your body takes precedence over
your bones when it comes to
available calcium," Jones said.
"For this reason, inadequate calci-
um intake can lead to a weaken-
ing of the bones over time."
The National Academy of Sci-
ences recommends that Ameri-
cans consume between 500mg
and 1,300mg of calcium daily.
According to the United States
Department of Agriculture
(USDA), all age groups fall short
on getting the calcium they need
each day. For example, anyone
over the age of 50 should ingest
1,200 milligrams of calcium each
day.
To get adequate amounts of
calcium, the USDA recommends
three servings of dairy products
per day. One dairy serving
includes:


Milk: 8 ounces (1 cup) con-
tains up to 300 milligrams of calci-
um.
Cheese: (natural e.g. Ched-
dar, Mozzarella): 1-1.5 ounces
(the size of a matchbox) contains
up to 300 milligrams of calcium.
Yogurt: 8 ounces (1 cup)
contains up to 400 milligrams of
calcium.
"If you can't get enough calci-
um through your diet, we strongly
recommend a nutritional supple-
ment," said Brian Teti, franchise
operator of GNC in Dover.
Equally critical to the amount
of calcium intake is the absorp-
tion rate of that calcium into the
bones. Not all calcium sources
are created equal in terms of
absorption. If you are taking a
supplement, Teti said, it is impor-
tant to consider the. type of calci-
um being used. The most com-
mon calcium sources in
supplements include:
Calcium citrate malate (CCM):
Calcium citrate malate, is one of
the most absorbable calciums
available. It is composed of calci-,
um and two organic fruit acids,


citric acid (from citrus fruits) and
malic acid (from apples). This
form has the highest absorption
rate of all calcium sources at 40
percent.
Calcium carbonate: Calcium
carbonate is mined from the earth
and has been one of the most
commonly used sources of sup-
plemental calcium. It is the most
economical form of calcium and
is available in a variety of tablets,
capsules and chewables. Calcium
carbonate is about 26 percent
absorbable.
Calcium citrate: Calcium cit-
rate is a combination of calcium
and citric acid, Because stomach
acids are needed for calcium to
be absorbed by the body, citric
acid (from fruits) provides an
acidic environment for improved
calcium absorption. Calcium cit-
rate is about 24 percent
absorbable.
For more information on
selecting the right calcium sop-
plement, visit GNC's Web site at
www.gnc.com or the Dover GNC
at Gateway West S.C., 1030 Forest
Ave.

4-H leader welcomes challenges as Cattlewomen's president


SARASOTA As a 4-H
leader, Marlene Strickland
helped build a program so pop-
ular there's a waiting list to join
- now she hopes to bring simi-
lar results to the nation's largest
beef industry organization for
women.
In February, Strickland took
office as president of American
National CattleWomen Inc.
(ANCW), a national, nonprofit
group of about 2,000 women
.involved in ranching and relat-
ed agribusiness. She will guide
the organization for one year,
and plans to boost membership
using what she's learned during
three decades leading a Saraso-
ta 4-H club with her husband,
Don. The two are business
owners and part-time ranchers.
"My 4-H experiences have
given me ideas, hopes, 'goals
and training, which assisted me
in reaching this level in the beef
industry," she said.
The Stricklands lead the
Ridin' Rednecks, a Sarasota 4-H
club that boasts about 55 mem-
bers, so many that newcomers
are admitted only when previ-


ous members depart, she said.
Like all clubs in the Florida 4-H
Youth Development Program,
it's administered by the Univer-
sity of Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences. The
Stricklands became 4-H leaders
in 1975, because their daugh-
ters were involved in the club.
Though their children have
long since grown up 4-H
membership is open to youth
ages 8 to 18 the Stricklands
enjoy the work so much that
they've stayed on. For Marlene,
running the club was invalu-
able preparation for her new
role.
"Planning meetings, agen-
das, trips, assigning commit-
tees, raising funds, recognizing
achievement, these are all goals
which should be common to
any organization," she said.
"And through 4-H I was able to
meet many people in livestock,
agriculture and the legislative
arena."
One of the'most important
lessons Strickland took from 4-
H was that organizations stay
strong by reaching out to mem-


bers, she said. This spring,
she's putting the concept .into
practice by crisscrossing the
nation to visit ANCW members
in Washington State, Washing-
ton, D.C., Oklahoma, Arizona,
Alabama, Colorado and North
Dakota.
"I have been revitalized by
visiting all these states and see-
ing where our members live,
getting a glimpse of their
lifestyles and problems, and
getting their feedback," she
said.
Part of the reason for Strick-
land's hectic travel schedule is
that her presidency coincides
with an effort by ANCW to
determine how the organiza-
tion can best help its members
keep pace with the industry,
she said.
Founded in 1952, ANCW has
witnessed, and encouraged,
expansion of the opportunities
available to women in agribusi-
ness. Consumer education and
beef promotion are the back-
bone of ANCWs public out-
reach efforts, Strickland said.
The group's best-known proj-


ects are the. National Beef
Cook-Off recipe contest and the
National Beef Ambassador Pro-
gram, a public speaking com-
petition for teenagers.
ANCW boasts 26 affiliate
organizations, including Florida
CattleWomen, a statewide
group Strickland joined in 1987.
Though she grew up on large
commercial cattle ranches in
Florida and Arizona, as an adult
Strickland has raised cattle
largely as a hobby. Marlene and
Don Strickland operate an elec-
trical contracting business,
Land Electric, but began keep-
ing a few head of angus beef
cattle at their family farm in
1970 because they wanted their
children to enjoy the education-
al opportunities ranching
brings.
"My family background and
membership in Florida Cattle-
Women taught me about the
cattle business in Florida," Mar-
lene Strickland said. "We have
continued raising cattle
because it helps us stay abreast
of everything happening in the
industry, like inoculation and


marketing, and we can teach
our 4-H kids what we learn."
Strickland's involvement in
the beef industry at a national
level began .via Florida Cattle-
Women and the ANCW Nation-
al Beef Ambassador Program,
she said. In 1991, Florida Cattle-
Women asked her to help a
Florida youth compete in the
ambassador program's nation-
al finals and Strickland found
the program to be an ideal way
to help teens develop self-confi-
dence and leadership skills. In
the mid-1990s she was twice
elected president of Florida Cat-
tleWomen, which enabled her
to attend national ANCW meet-
ings, where she learned more
about the program and began
prompting it more in Florida.
In 1999, Strickland began
serving on a national commit-
tee for the ambassador pro-
gram, and also became a
regional director for ANCW In
2003, she was elected ANCW
vice president and the follow-
ing year was selected president-
elect at the ANCW national
convention in Phoenix.


Despite her responsibilities
with ANCW, Strickland spends
as much time as ever with the
Ridin' Rednecks, said Marcia
Morris, a UF extension agent
working for the Sarasota Coun-
ty 4-H program. The two have
been acquainted for five years.
"Marlene hasn't slowed
down one bit," Morris said.
"She's also very involved with
her family, her business and her
church. She does so much, it's
almost like she has a twin."
Strickland says her leader-
ship philosophy can be
summed up in a phrase she
uses as the theme for her
ANCW presidency, "spread a
little sunshine, each one'reach
one." She believes communica-
tion and cooperation are cru-
cial to any organization's suc-
cess, and sees 4-H promoting
those values within families.
"4-H provides entertain-
ment, education and some-
thing where a family can work
together and see progress," she
said. "In 4-H, winning is nice
but it isn't everything. Participa-
tion is more important."
