CHS students go literary


By Bill Fabian
Clewiston High School's jun-
ior English students showcased
their artistic expressions in an
exciting compilation of works of
poetry, prose, and graphic
design. This body of work, com-
prised of an estimated 43 arti-
cles, poems, and essays, all sub-
mitted by 11th-grade English
students, has been published
and released for sale under the
title, "The Collaboration." .
Under the direction of Eng-


lish instructor Nancy Dale,
Ph.D., "The Collaboration" was
an independent student project
that began in February. In order
to give students the opportunity
to display their efforts for others
to appreciate, the project was
developed and co-directed by a
four-member editorial team,
which included Juniors Corwin
Bass, Alicia Stallworth,
Daneisha McBride, and Dawn
Parkerson.
Long hours of editing, proof-


reading, typing, and more edit-
ing paid off for the editors, who
not only have a potentially valu-
able business product, but also
have a complete, well-con-
structed collection of thoughts,
emotions and opinions that will
be preserved, and remembered
for years to come.
"We (the editors) started out
with different, specific assign-
ments and jobs to do in order to
finish this project," said Miss
McBride. "Eventually, we all sort

of ended up doing the same
general things, and just worked
together to get the job done,"
she said.
Many of the poems submit-
ted share common themes and
issues the students encounter
daily, including love, death,
friendship, sports, school, and
spiritual issues. These subjects
became the headings by which
the collection was organized.
Interestingly, "love" was a very
popular theme, comprising over


half the submitted entries.
The collection also includes a
yearly horoscope, and a reflec-,
tive essay submitted by Jamie
Escobedo entitled "Soap Box".
Mrs. Dale hopes this project
will teach the editors and con-
tributors valuable lessons.

Buckle up: Seat belts save lives


An auto accident reported on
the weekend television news
caught my attention. A teenage
driver apparently lost control of his
vehicle, resulting in a fatal crash.
"My son would probably still be
alive if he had worn his seat belt,"
'said the grieving father.
The man urged all parents
watching to make sure their chil-
dren wear their seat belts.
Traveling by automobile can be
dangerous. You can't control what
the other drivers on the road will
do. If you are a passenger, you have
even less control of the situation.
But you can control one aspect of
your own safety when you decide
whether or not you put on a seat
belt.
The Florida Highway Patrol has
spent a lot of time and money try-
ing to get that message across: Seat
belts save lives.
SStatistics from the Florida
Department of Highway Safety and
Motor Vehicles show that more
thanrhalf the drivers and occupants
in crashes; suffer no injuries
because they used seat belts,

airbags or both.
Nearly 60 percent of those who
die in auto accidents were not
wearing their seat belts.
Seat belts don't save people
every time sometimes the
impact is too severe. But they offer
crucial protection, first from the
aftershocks of every collision,
according to the FHP.
An object in motion tends to
stay in motion. In a car crash, the
vehicle may be stopped, but every-
thing in it that is not fastened down
keeps moving. This force can
throw the car's occupants forward
- even through or out a window.
In the case of rollover accidents,

those ejected from the vehicle can
wind up underneath it.
Airbags are an important safety
tool, but they don't take the place
of seat belts.
How can you make sure your
teenage children buckle up? Make
it a habit that becomes automatic.
Insist that every person in your car
wears a seatbelt. And since chil-
dren learn best from example -
make sure'they always see their
parents buckle up as well.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise program, con-
sult your doctor. This is especially
important if you are on any pre-
scription medications. Some drugs
interact badly with foods that
would otherwise be considered
"healthy".

gions of our world, it's not hard to
grasp that there has been fierce
competition and even bloody con-
flict over this holy piece of real
estate. Such warfare has broken
out multiple
times, and
Kingdom of
Heaven takes a
look at what

between the
Second and
Third Crusades,
showing us a Pastor
colorful clash of John Hicks
personalities,
cultures, regions and religions.
Orlando Bloom plays the heroic
peasant who becomes a knight
and saves a kingdom. At the heart
of the film, though, is the honor-
able code of the knight, fairness,
faith and chivalry, right and honor-
able action.
But the film once again raises
the question as to whose action


was right in the age of .the Cru-
sades. Was it the action of the
Knights Temblor, the warrior
monks who wanted Jerusalem for
the Christians? Or was it the action
of Saladin, the Turk and Muslim
paladin who conquered
Jerusalem in 1187?
These questions are coming
up again as the film appears in
theaters across the country.
According to The New York
Times, a Catholic scholar has
stamped it fair and a Muslim
scholar has cried foul. A number,
of British scholars have come to
the opposite conclusion, stating
that the film distorts history to por-
tray Arabs in a favorable light.
Who's right?
A crusader was so-called
because he was someone who
took the sign of the cross. It was'
often emblazoned across his
shield, or his garments. In a cere-
mony, he knelt, and solemnly
swore that he would say his vows
at the Church of the Holy Sepul-


cher, or die in the attempt.
Those who did make it to
Jerusalem, made their way to the
church, and thrust their sword
into the ground, and staring at its
cruciform shape and said their
vows. This is also the way many of
them died on the battlefield the
last image they saw was the image
of the cross.
But the film leaves us with a
question. Where should we be
standing today, as Christians who
trace our history moves back not
only to the Crusades, but also to
the apostles? It is certainly true
that your Christian history moves
from the cross to the. Crusades,
but it goes far beyond the Middle
Ages as well. We have to ask our-
selves if we, as 21st century cru-
saders, are showing the world a
raised cross or a raised sword? The
bottom line is this, When people
look at us, they should see a Christ-
ian code at work. Everything we do
should be marked by right action,
fairness, integrity, and faith.


Pet Corner


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Is it true that
if you see a bird eating a certain
berry, insect, or bug; that you could
consider it to be non-toxic? Thanks
Doc, Tanya in Pt.St. Lucie.
A: Well hey there Tanya! For the
most part yes! However, not 100
percent of the time. Birds have a
learned instinct too. In some cases
they have to eat something that
makes them sick, so to learn not to
repeat the behavior a second time..
Berries probably do not fall into
this category. So, yes! Birds do have
a special berry ESP so to speak. As

That's a very tough situation, I have
been through some, but I don't,
know how I would survive without
my other half.
Q: What is your favorite song?
A: My favorite song is "Nothing
is going to stop.us now" by, Jeffer-
son Starship. It's an old song.
Q: Why is that your favorite
song?


terfly. (My favorite college profes-
sor Dr. Susan Koptur would be so
proud I remembered'1 The Vicroy
looks almost exactly like the
Monarch, but just a tad smaller.
The Monarch is very good eating,
and the Vicroy makes a bird vomit.,
So, if a bird eats a Vicroy and vom-
its, he probably won't try to eat
anything that looks like a Vicroy or
Monarch. Unless, he needs to
make the same mistake twice in
order to learn the lesson. (Kinda a
lot like many humans. Ha! ) So
Tanya, I guess the moral to this
story is don't eat berries, bugs or
insects unless they are properly
packaged for sale at the grocery
store! Best Wishes, Doc Savvy.

Q: Dear Doc Savvy. What is a'
safe, inexpensive product to use in
your home to prevent flea infesta-
tion? We love your radio show -
Jessica and Eric in Loxahatchee.'
A: Well thank you for tuning in
guVs! Ok, I have to premise this
answer by saying that flea control is
in three places. Control and treat-
ment of the outside environment,
inside environment, and on the
pet! If you don't do all three with a
safe and effective product, you will
NOT get the fleas under control.
Even if you do all three, you will still


see an occasional flea. This is part
of being a Floridian. My favorite
choice to control the fleas inside
the hoMe, is a product called "20
Mule power Borax". It's simply an
old brand Of laundry detergent. It
can be safely sprinkled on carpets,
pet bedding, and area rugs, and left
for a few days before vacuuming.
Now, this is non-toxic to pets, but
please don't think it is okay for your
pet to sit there and lick it off the run!
It will cause vomiting and diarrhea!
Keep the pets away from treated
areas until it is vacuumed off. I rec-
ommend that this is repeated every
2 weeks until things are under con-
trol, Some folks do it year round. If
you have mostly tile, then just do
pet bedding and area rugs.
Remember, use a quality VETERI-
NARY ONLY flea product on your
pet, and, consult your local hard-
ware store for a safe and effective"
recommendation for your yard.
Hope that helps Jessica and Eric!
Takecare, Doc Savvy.

StaiT rnoto/ioeyDis GonzalBz
Sandi Rodriguez Patient
Account and Medical
Records Supervisor for the
Florida Community Health
Center.
A: First of all it's my husband
and my song, and second of all just
the theory behind it, sticking on to
each other no matter what hap-
pens you will make it.
Q:Whatirksyou?
A: I think "rudeness" is probably
the worst thing out there in any lan-
guage, but you know, expecting
someone to understand you, when
you're rude, is really tough, so, be
nice, and you would get a lot more
help.
Q: What is the memory you
holddeartoyou?
A: When My kids were Bar-
mitzrahits" (it's like a confirmation
in the Jewish religion. That was
probably the neatest thing.
Q:Areyouashyperson?
A: Well, I guess I would have to
say in between, I don't like standing
up in front of people and talking,
but once I get going, and take a
deep breath, I am fine. It's the get-
ting going part that's hard, so I
would have to say in between.

Lady Ter

By Mark Young
Following their district champi-
onship romp last week, the Moore
Haven Lady Terriers softball squad
continued to pick up momentum
by thrashing Tampa Prep in their
first ever regional championship
tournament appearance.
The clay diamond sparkled for
the Lady Terriers who started off
the action with a bang when Sierra
Dionne led off the game with a drag
bunt base hit. Two more bunt sin-
gles from Ashanti Shepherd and
Kara Anderson loaded up the bags
and Dionne would touch home
plate on a fielder's choice RBI from
Chantell Morris.
Moore Haven opened up the
game with a 1-0 lead, but blew
open the doors in the second
inning when Tampa Prep gave up a
walk and an error, putting a pair of
Lady Terriers in scoring position for
Dionne's second trip to the plate.
Dionne made Tampa Prep pay for
their mistakes with a RBI single fol-
lowed by a RBI single from Shep-
herd. Mary Randolph and Susan
Mathis were the first two on the
bags and good base running,
including a stolen bag from Mathis
allowed both runners to score.


liers topp]
In all, the Lady Terriers crossed
five runners across home plate to
open up a 6-0 advantage. Moore
Haven added another run in the
fourth inning when a pair of errors
allowed Morris to pick up a RBI sin-
gle, as the Lady Terriers jumped out
to a 7-0 lead after four innings of
play.
Tampa Prep closed the gap in
the top of the fifth, scoring a pair of
runs, but the Lady Terriers cush-
ioned their advantage in the bot-
tom of the sixth, scoring a trio of
runs off of a pair of walks, two
errors, two passed balls, a pair of
stolen bags, and a RBI single from
Morris.
Moore Haven's dream season
continued after winning their first
district championship, they con-
cluded their first regional appear-
ance with a solid 10-2. victory over
Tampa Prep, but the reward was to
face the number one team in 2A -
McKeel Academy.
The Lakeland squad found
themselves up against a feisty Lady
Terrier squad and the result was
scoreless battle through the first
four innings of action. McKeel
eventually held a small 1-0 advan-
tage and took advantage of one big
inning to bring the Lady Terriers'


le Tampa
season to a conclusion.
Moore Haven head coach, Chris
Goodwin, said his squad came out
against McKeel Academy a little
nervous and a little flat, but could-
n't be prouder of his squad's 18-10
overall record; their district champi-
onship, and the fact they, advanced
in regional competition. According
to coach Goodwin, this year's per-
formance brings much excitement
for the future of this very young ball
club.
"We only lose one player on
next year's team," he said. "We will
be back with a vengance. Look out
FHSAA 2006 State Finals here
we come."
The team wished to extend a
special thank you to Lisa Randolph
(scorekeeper), Kathy Mathis
(announcer), Dawn and Doug
Manke, and Mr. and Mrs. McQuern
for being so supportive to the
squad.
"Thanks to all of our sponsors
that support us each year and all of
the other parents and fans," said
coach Goodwin. "Mrs. Janice
Brown is to receive special recogni-
tion for all of her hard work that she
contributes to Moore Haven High
School's athletic programs."

Community in Clewiston, a reha-

the mentally disabled. This is a
service provided to approximate-
ly 25 daytime clients, -with an
additional few full time clients,
according to director Darren
Kenyon- The facility also provides
computer access to its clients,
with touch screens and voice-acti-
vated interface. These computers
are aging, however, and they will
use funds from the cyclists' dona-
tion for new equipment. -
"We've been operating in


Clewiston for about nine years
now, providing home care and
day training," said Mr. Kenyon.
"Not everyone, is aware of our
service, but today's event is one
of our biggest all year," he said.
The cyclists ate with the mem-
bers of Sunrise, and then present-
ed them with a $750 donation for
new computer supplies. The
cyclists will continue their trek for
the next two weeks, riding
through cities such as Ft. Myers,

The Clewiston Board of City Commissioners bid farewell and
gave thanks to Mr. Pelham, his wife, Cherri, and his family
during their regular meeting on Monday, May 16.


Pelham
Continued From Page 1
Throughout his service to the
city, Mr. Pelham was the source of
knowledge and advice for other
firemen, who have long revered
the veteran volunteer fireman. Mr.
Pelham was instrumental in the
establishment and maintenance
of an efficient, effective depart-
ment that has grown to adapt to
burgeoning housing and com-


mercial development in Clewis-
ton and the surrounding areas.
This adaptation was highlighted
by the construction of a new fire
station in 1998 near city hall.
In the city proclamation, Mr.
Pelham received thanks for his
service by "commending him for
his many contributions to the
progress of the Clewiston Fire
Department; further, the City
Commission extends its personal

Students-
Continued From Page 1
Were able to tour the sights and
sounds of Lake Okeechobee,
with some of the students seeing
it for the first time.
In order for the students to
meet their yearly goal, they had to
reach an 85 percent or higher
score, as well as accumulate the
right number of points (depend-
ing on each child's reading level).
Some of the students returning
from the tour were very excited
and talked about all the neat
things they saw.
Jennifer Monge, a second
grader said, "I saw a very big alli-


gator, and all kinds of birds."
Katrina Martinez, another Sec-
ond grader said, "I saw a lot of
trees, a 'momma' alligator, and
.birds."
Ruben Gonzalez a First grader
said, "I saw a bird's nest and a 14-
foot alligator, and a lot of different
kind of birds."

Board authorizes public process


At the regularly scheduled meet-
ing of the South Florida Water Man-
agement District on May 11, the
Governing Board authorized the
publication of a Notice of Rule
Development to begin a public
process to develop rules that will
enhance water quality treatment in
much of Southwest Florida.
The Governing Board action
comes after several months of col-
laborative meetings with environ-
mental and development groups to
solicit input on water quality con-
cerns in Southwest Florida.
"The coordination and cooper-


ation from the divergent groups we
have met with has greatly con-
tributed to our ability to set criteria
that will not only enhance water
quality, but will also give clear
direction to the development com-
munity on water quality require-
ments," said Alice Carlson, District
Governing Board member. "I am
hopeful that the expanded public
process we go through in Rule-
Development will allow for addi-
tional input from the public."
Currently, applications are
reviewed and evaluated on a proj-
ect-by-project basis for additional


treatment measures to provide
assurances that the project will not
cause or contribute to the contin-
ued impairment of water bodies. A
basin rule would provide clear cri-
teria regarding the reasonable
assurances necessary to demon-
strate that a project will not cause
or contribute to continued impair-
ment.
.A basin rule will also minimize
potential for healthy waters to
become impaired and may reduce
the cost and difficulty of restoring
impaired waters.
"Most projects in the Southwest


Florida region ultimately discharge
to water bodies designated as Out-
standing Florida Waters or identi-
fied as impaired by the Florida
Department of Environmental Pro-
tection", said Carlson. "We believe
that, if adopted, these new rules
will help us protect our sensitive
water bodies."
After publication of the Notice
of Rule Development the District
will publish a schedule of public
workshops for the purpose of solic-
iting public input in developing the
newrule.


Lake Okeechobee fishing still good


By Loma Jablonski
OKEECHOBEE Despite dirty
water and a large algae bloom,
bass fishing continues to be good
on Lake Okeechobee according to
local anglers and fishing guides.
"Fishing is good because fish
adapt to poor lake conditions, but
you can't count on catching them
in the same spot from day to day,"
stated long-time angler and profes-
sional fishing guide Larry Wright.
"They move around in search of
clear water and you have to go out
and find them."
Thursday, May 12, Wright pulled
in 98 bass including a lunker that
topped the 10-pound mark.
At last week's Christian Team
Trail Classic the top six finishers
brought in a combined total weight
of 85.29 lbs. of bass from safe light
to 1 p.m.
The anglers in the Headturn-
ers3.com two-day tournament in
March brought 529.64 pounds of
bass to the scale. Ninety-nine per-
cent were released back into the
lake. In April, 635.62 pounds of
bass hit the scale in the Headturn-
ers3.com two-day tourney with
another 99 percent being released
back into the dirty water of Lake
Okeechobee.
The algae bloom is large
according to Don Fox, fisheries
biologist with the Florida Fish and.
Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC).
"We saw a large algae bloom
from Little Grassy Island to Obser-
vation Shoal," stated Mr. Fox. "If the
wind blows in the right direction, it

An algae bloom currently appearing onr Lake Okeechobee
has not affected fishing according to local anglers and
guides. The bloom, said fisheries biologist Don Fox, stretch-
es from Little Grassy Island to Observation Shoal.


should work its way toward shore
and break up. The water is
extremely dirty. Aquatic plant life
cannot grow in these conditions.
The sunlight cannot permeate the
muddy water and reach the vegeta-
tion at the bottom of the lake."
He went on to explain that bass
are the top predators among fish in
Lake Okeechobee. They will eat
anything, so their numbers are'still
good, said Mr. Fox. But, something
has to be done to clear up the water
so that the plants that help feed fish
at the lower end of the food chain
will grow and provide bait fish with
food.
The water in Lake Okeechobee
is currently at approximately 14.6
feet above sea level.


"We are going into the normal
rainy season, with the start of the
2005 hurricane season just two
weeks away. In order for bottom
plants to grow, the lake level will
have to be dropped to 12 feet or
even lower and kept that low until
plants begin to grow and get a
good hold of the earth before
allowing the lake to rise again,"
said Mr. Fox.
Captain Terry Garrels, a guide at
Roland Martin's Marina in Clewis-
ton and the owner of "Big 0" Air-
boat Tours, stated, "Something
should have been done a long time
ago. Everything we gained a few
years ago is gone. Last year's hurri-
canes were only a small part of
what has happened to Lake Okee-


chobee. We need to clean this lake
up no matterwhat it takes."


The towns around Lake Okee-
chobee depend on the lake. It
brings in tourists and fishermen. It
provides water to large cities to the
south and enjoyment and income
to the thousands who live and
work on it.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District (SFWMD) met
Wednesday, May 11, to discuss the
plight of Lake Okeechobee. After
hearing from officials such as
Susan Gray, director of the district's
Lake Okeechobee division, the
board agreed that the district might
have to take drastic measures to
clean up the lake. The measures
include creating man-made
drought conditions by dropping the
lake level to 12 feet, and installing
temporary pumps to move water
between the lake and surrounding
farms and utilities.
If they decide to drop the lake
level, it will be sometime next April.
The board approved $5.1 million in
contracts for a filter marsh and the
expansion of a storm-water treat-
ment area both north of Lake
Okeechobee.
"Officials have known about the
problems with the lake for
decades," stated Mr. Garrels. "Now
is the time to take action, not next
April. We're in dire trouble now.
They've been putting off dealing
with the ever-growing problems
and passing them along through
the years. Something must be done
about the lake now, while we still
can."

Nelson requests new probe of reporter's murder


WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S.
Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) has
requested that Peru's President
Alejandro Toledo reopen an
investigation into the death of a
Florida newspaper reporter
murdered on the job near a
Peruvian jungle town more than
15 years ago.
The case was shrouded in
secrecy until recently when pub-
lished reports said new evidence
implicated several men linked to
the drug trade in.the death of
Tampa Tribune reporter Todd
Smith. Smith, 28, was tortured
and strangled to death while
working on a story about Peru's
coca-region.
Spurred by the new revela-
tions, Nelson on Wednesday for-
mally requested another investi-
gation into Smith's murder. The
request came during an after-
noon telephone call to Peru's
ambassador to the U.S., Eduar-
do Ferrero, who told Nelson-
he'd "put all (his) effort into
this."
Nelson described the ambas-
sador's response as encourag-
ing. "I'm hopeful that justice in
this case can finally be served,"
said Nelson, of Florida, who's a
member of the Senate's Foreign
Relations panel. "Todd's parents'
and two sisters deserve no less."
In January, Nelson traveled to
Peru and established a relation-
ship with Toledo and Ferrero,.
which he hopes will help push
through his request for opening
a new murder probe.
At the time of Smith's death
in 1989, Peruvian officials were
quick to say it was the work of
the Shining Path, a Maoist insur-


gent group linked to protecting
coca-plant cultivators. Four
years afterward, a secret count-
er-terrorism trial resulted in a
Shining Path guerrilla receiving
30 years in prison in connection
with the murder. He was the
only person ever tried, and
received early release.
Little else was known until
records of the secret trial
emerged last December, includ-
ing an intelligence report identi-
fying a businessman who found-
ed a Peru airline as one of the
masterminds behind Smith's
killing. The court records were
obtained by a Lima-based insti-
tute for a free society. I
According to an intelligence
report in those records, the guer-
rillas who tortured and strangled
Smith were working for the
Peruvian businessman identi-
fied in published accounts as
Fernando Zevallos and two
others allegedly involved in the
drug trade. Zevallos, labeled a
Peruvian cocaine kingpin last
year by the Bush Administration,
was never charged in the case.
This is not the first time Nel-,
son has sought to come to the
aid of an American killed in
another country. He began
working several years ago to
resolve the fate of a Jacksonville
Navy pilot, Scott Speicher, who
was shot down in the first Gulf
War. Nelson's efforts spurred the
creation of a special military unit
to search for him in Iraq. A
report is due out soon.
(Editor's note: The following
is Senator's Nelson transcribed
speech to the Senate floor.)
May 11,2005, 6:30 p.m.


Mr. President, just today I ini-
tiated an effort to push Peruvian
President Alejandro Toledo to
reopen an investigation into the
brutal torture-murder of a young
journalist from my state.
The 28-year-old reporter,
Todd Smith, was found dead 15
years ago, his body discovered
in Peru's violent coca-producing
region. This son of a Florida
appellate judge worked for The
Tampa Tribune, and was investi-
gating the drug traffic in the
northern Peruvian jungle.
Officials in Peru were quick
to say the murder was the work
of the Shining Path a Maoist
insurgent group said to be
involved in protecting cultivators
of the coca plant. Specifically,
Peru's Interior Ministry said
Todd had been captured by
Maoist rebels and possibly sold
to drug traffickers for $30,000.
Four years later, a secret
counter-terrorism trial in Peru
resulted in a Shining Path guer-
rilla being sentenced to 30 years
in prison for taking-part in the
murder. He was the only person
ever tried for the crime and
even he reportedly has received
an early release.
Little else was known. Now,
however, the transcript of that
secret 1993 trial has emerged,
including an intelligence report
that identifies a businessman
who founded a Peru airline as
one of the masterminds behind
Todd's killing. The complete
court file was obtained by a
Lima-based institute for a free
press and society.
According to one of several
detailed intelligence reports in


the trial transcript, the guerrillas
who tortured and strangled Todd
were working for Peru business-
man Fernando Zevallos, and two
others allegedly involved in the
drug trade.
But Zevallos labeled a
Peruvian cocaine kingpin last
year by the Bush Administration
- was never charged in the case.
The New York Times quotes
American and Peruvian authori-
ties as saying he has evaded jus-
tice for so long by bribing court
officials and killing witnesses.
Mr. President, it's been over
15 years since a son of Florida
and a member of the Fourt4h
Estate was tortured and stran-
gled to death in the jungles of
Peru and clearly, justice has yet
to be served.
In January, I went to Peru.
And there, I established a work-
ing relationship with President
Toledo and was joined by
Ambassador Ferrero, Peru's
ambassador to the United
States.
Today through proper diplo-
matic channels I made a for-
mal request that President Tole-
do immediately reopen the
investigation into Todd Smith's
death; and, that his government
cooperate fully with our State
Department and FBI.
And Ambassador Ferrero told
me he "would put all his effort
into this."
Mr. President, I hope my Sen-
ate colleagues will join me in
demanding that justice finally be
served in this case. Todd's family
deserves no less.

Attorney general reaches agreement in flu case


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist announced
that his office has reached an
agreement with Broward Coun-
ty-based ASAP Meds, Inc., doing
business as Meds-Stat, relating
.to allegations that the company
committed price gouging on flu
vaccinations during last year's
vaccination shortage. Under the
agreement, the company will
refrain from further flu vaccine
sales and will provide more than
$220,000 in reparation for its
activities.,
In October 2004, the Attorney
General's Office sued Meds-Stat
for deceptive and unfair trade
practices over the pricing of flu


vaccines. The company was sell-
ing vials of flu vaccine, which
contained 10 doses per vial, for
$900 when the normal price
range was $63-$85 per vial. This
amounted to a markup of more
than 900 percent per vial. The
suit included both a request for
an injunction that would prevent
Meds-Stat from selling vaccines
at unconscionable prices and a
request for damages and penal-
ties as allowed by law.
A court order was entered
against Meds-Stat shortly after
the lawsuit was filed preventing
the company from buying or
selling any more flu vaccines.
The comrparn was also required


to surrender the remaining vac-
cines, which were made avail-
able to the public free of charge.
"Price gouging is the worst
example of taking advantage of
those in situations of great
need," said Crist. "There is no
excuse for anyone to capitalize
on the unfortunate situation
caused by the vaccine shortage,
and this agreement will prevent
the company from participating
in such activities in the future."
Under the agreement, Meds-
Stat must permanently refrain
from selling flu vaccine. Meds-
Stat also agreed that it will
refrain from intentionally mak-
ing false statements to con-


sumers relating to how much of
a given drug is in stock, how
quickly it is being sold and how
long the current supply will last.
In addition, the company will
provide $150,000 for the Teen
Empowerment Program, affiliat-
ed with the University Area
Community Development Cor-
poration, Inc. This program pro-
vides job training, employability
skills, cultural, recreational and
educational activities to at-risk
youth in the Tampa-Hillsbor-
ough area. Meds-Stat will also
submit more than $71,000 to be
used to assist pharmacies that
were affected by Meds-Stat's
activities.


Land acquisition approved for Everglades restoration


The South Florida Water Man-
agement District continues its
aggressive land acquisition pace
for Everglades restoration. The
agency's Governing Board
unanimously authorized the
acquisition of approximately
12,000 acres in Martin County at
its appraised value of $168 mil-
lion ($14,000 per acre). In sup-
port 'of shared ecosystem
restoration goals, Martin County
Commissioners presented the
Governing Board with a check
for $26.8 million toward the pur-
chase price.
Recreational uses and a park
are being considered by the Dis-
trict and county on open areas of
the property.
"Our shared commitment
with our local partners to restore
and revitalize the greater Ever-
glades ecosystem, which
includes the St. Lucie Estuary
and Indian River Lagoon, is
demonstrated with this gener-
ous check from Martin County,"
said Governing Board Member
Lennart E. Lindahl. "I commend
and thank Martin County for
contributing toward this signifi-
cant acquisition."
The C-44 (St. Lucie 'Canal)


Reservoir/Storm-water Treat-
ment Area land acquisition -
estimated for completion by the
end of 2009 is one of eight
major restoration projects to be
completed more than a decade
ahead of schedule under the
Acceler8 initiative.
"As a component of the $8
billion federal-state Comprehen-
sive Everglades Restoration
Plan's Indian River Lagoon
South Restoration Project, the C-
44 (St. Lucie Canal)
Reservoir/STA project will
improve water quality and
reduce storm-water flow to the
St. Lucie Estuary and Indian
River. Lagoon, revitalizing fish
and oyster habitats by maintain-
ing desirable salinity levels," said
Ken Ammon, South Florida
Water Management District
executive in charge of the Accel-
er8 program.
An 1 l-to-12-foot-deep above-
ground' reservoir will be con-
structed that will provide addi-
tional water storage for the C-44
basin. The project also includes
storm-water treatment areas to
capture and clean excess
stormwater runoff before it
enters the St. Lucie Canal and,


ultimately, the St. Lucie Estuary
and Indian River Lagoon,
improving the overall health of
the ecosystem. The project
includes an option for expan-
sion of an additional reservoir
that would be capable of-reduc-
ing the impact-efEake Okee-
chabeeregulatory releases to
the estuary..
The 12,000-acre property has
these advantages for the project:
--- Ability to increase water
quality treatment flexibility.
Ability to design the storm-
water treatment areas to South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict standards using the pre-
ferred emergent vegetation tech-
nology.
Increased design flexibility
in mitigating off-site seepage
impacts.


I


Increased operational flexi-
bility.
The project allows for a
conservative design with 3,500
to 4,000 acres of reservoir and
7,000 to 8,000 acres of storm-
water treatment areas.
The project is located with-
in 1,000 feet of the main water
source the C-44 Canal (St.
Lucie Canal).
Provided for a recreational
component to be managed by
Martin County.
Funding for the land will be
shared by the state, local govern-
ments and South Florida Water
Management District funds.
The project allows all
storm-water treatment areas to
be situated on the same proper-
ty, increasing operational effi-
ciency.

White footed ants marching our way I


As temperatures start to rise,
homeowners may start to see
increased numbers of critters start-
ing to invade indoors spaces. One
of the most difficult to control
household pests is the White Foot-
ed Ant, a relatively new invader that
is now suspected to be a problem
in our area.
The bad news is that this
Indonesian import has recently
been found in nearly half of Flori-
da's counties. The good news is
that recent UF research has devel-
oped a new liquid bait that will
soon be available, just in time to
battle an expected increase in activ-
ity of this challenging insect pest.
This small black ant received
much attention a couple of years
ago. A native of Southeast Asia, the
White-Footed Ant (WFA) was
found in a Homestead plant nurs-
ery in 1986. Local pest control
companies in our 'area have seen
them in Okeechobee. This year,
there are now reports of Florida
infestations in the Jacksonville
area. These pests have also spread
from Florida to Columbia, SC,
Baton Rouge, LA, Savannah, GA,

Two small Florida military installations set to close


MIAMI Two small military
installations that employ just
over 200 people are the only
ones in Florida on the Pentagon's
list released Friday of domestic
bases scheduled for closure,
according to a copy of the list
provided to members of Con-
gress.
All of the major military bases
in Florida will remain open,
although some would undergo
realignment that would produce
a net loss of military and civilian
jobs at some bases. In total, how-
ever, the state will gain more
than 2,700 personnel at the 13
bases affected.
The Pentagon list, provided by


Florida congressional officials to
The Associated Press, shows that
two installations are proposed
for closure: the Defense Finance
and Accounting Services in
Orlando, employing 209 people,
and the 12-employee Naval
Reserve Center in St. Petersburg.
U.S. Rep. Tom Feeney, R-
Oviedo, said he was working
with Rep. Ric Keller, the Orlando
Republican whose district
includes the accounting center,
to minimize any negative effects
if it is eventually closed. The
accounting center employs nine
military personnel and 200 civil-
ians.
"He said that it was not a huge


shock. It was something we were
worried about," Feeney said.
The biggest Florida losses in
terms of jobs would occur in a
realignment of the Naval Air Sta-
tion in Pensacola, which would
see a net reduction of 1,579 mili-
tary, civilian and contractor per-
sonnel. Patrick Air Force near
Cape Canaveral would lose 195
personnel under the realignment
and Tyndall Air Force Base in
Panama City would lose 56,
according to the Pentagon pro-
posal.
The biggest gains would be at
Eglin Air Force Base in Florida's
Panhandle, where 2,218 new
personnel would be added, and


at the Naval Air Station in Jack-
sonville, with 2,025 new person-
nel. The Naval Station at Mayport
would gain 410 military and cili-
vian personnel.
Precise details of the gains
and realignments affecting Flori-
da were not immediately avail-
able.
Defense Secretary Donald
Rumsfeld is expected to formally
release the list later Friday. The
2005 BRAC Commission will
then have nearly four months to
present a final version to Presi-
dent Bush and Congress, which
must approve or reject it in its
entirety.

and Paradise Island, Bahamas.
White footed ants do not bite,
sting or cause any structural dam-
age to properties. They are very
small, less that 1/8 inch long, and
have light colored legs. They do not
move around like Crazy ants, and
are smaller than Argentine ants,
both of which have dark legs.
They seem to appear from
nowhere in large numbers in
kitchens and bathrooms causing
alarm to homeowners. They are
strongly attracted to sugary food
sources, and will often protect sap-
sucking insects like aphids and
scales that secrete honeydew.
University of Florida student
John Warner has conducted
research on the bait preferences of
these insects. Warner also operates
Shalom Pest Control in Boca Raton,
and reports he has received more
calls from new customers about
WFA problems this year than in the
past few years.
Homeowners who see trails of
small black ants often coming from
trees and shrubs and trailing up
and down the sides of their homes
should not wait to take action.


Warner warns WFA problems get
worse as the weather warms,
increasing the high populations of
this amazing ant.,
Nests tend to be found outside
more than inside. Indoors they nest
in spaces between walls and in
attics. Outdoor nests maybe found:
In tree holes or on the underside of
leaves, on bushes, under palm
fronds and old leaf boots, in loose
mulch, under debris such as news-
paper, fallen coconuts, scrap
wood, etc. in leaf-litter on the
ground and in rain gutters.
Actions that homeowners can
take include cutting trees and
shrubs away from their homes,
and using lots of liquid ant bait
(always maintain a sufficient, fresh
supply).
Warner determined their
favorite foods sources and
matched them with various insecti-
cides. His work has resulted in a
new liquid bait for WFA called
NecDewtm, which has been
patented by the University of Flori-
da, and will soon be released.
Insecticidal sprays directed
against other sap-sucking insects


that produce the honeydew can
also help. In cases of active ant
trails in living areas, some tempo-
rary relief can result from. using
other contact sprays, but this kind
of approach will rarely kill the
colony. A more comprehensive
approach will be needed.
Before using any ant killers
inside, be sure it is LABELED for
INDOOR use. Always be sure to fol-
low the label directions when using
insecticides.
Homeowners might not wish to
tackle the difficult task of dealing
with WFA. Instead, consider con-
tacting local pest control compa-
nies. Consumers with WFA prob-
lems should ask around for a pest
control company with a proven
track record in controlling this ant.
Warner reports that many of his
new customers had used other
companies that were not able to
control the WFA infestation. He
suggests that homeowners
become more informed about this
ant before calling a pest control
company.

WEST PALM BEACH On
May 11, the Health Care District
Board nominated David Goodlett
as Board Chairman. David
Goodlett is Vice President of Gov-
ernment and Community Rela-
tions for the Sugar Cane Growers
Cooperative of Florida.
"I appreciate the confidence
the District Board expressed by
selecting me as Chairman," says
David Goodlett. "I look forward to
working with the Health Care Dis-
trict as it focuses on expanding
coverage for the uninsured,
enhancing access to health care in
western Palm Beach County, and
ensuring availability of health care
services throughout the county."
. Mr. Goodlett was appointed by
Governor Bush in 2000 to serve on
the Health Care District's Govern-
ing Board. Since that time, he has
worked with the Board to advance
countless solutions to meet the


health care needs of Palm Beach
County's residents. In addition to
assisting Health Care District staff
in negotiations with Province
Healthcare Corporation to repur-
chase Glades
General Hospi-
tal in 2003, Mr.
Goodlett estab-
lished a health
care grant pro-
gram for organ-
izations serving
the Glades
community.
Now in its sec- David
ond year, the Goodlett
grant program,
under the leadership of the West-
ern County Health Advisory Com-
mittee, awarded 12 grants in 2004
totaling $176,000. The Committee
.is'currently reviewing proposals
for 2005 grant awards.
Mr. Goodlett replaces Randee


S. Schatz who has chaired the Dis-
trict Board since 2002. Other
board officers include Dr. Stanley
Pierce, Vice-Chairman, and Rep-
resentative Irving Slosberg, Secre-
tary.
About the Health Care District:
The Health Care District has
broad health care experience in
Palm Beach County. Funded by ad
valorem taxes, the Health Care
District is responsible for the care
of trauma patients from the point
of injury to rehabilitation. The Dis-
trict funds two Level II trauma
centers and operates Trauma
Hawk for aeromedical transports
in cooperation with 18 other
emergency response organiza-
tions.
As a leader in children's health,
the District operates 160 school
health clinics and employs 200
school nurses who help to ensure
that 165,000 students are healthy


and ready to learn. Additionally,
our children's health program
includes 48 behavioral health pro-
fessionals who work in elemen-
tary schools to address behavioral
and emotional issues for students.
The District is also responsible for
a 198-bed nursing home for resi-
dents who require long-term
skilled nursing care that they can-
not receive at other nursing home
facilities.
A core responsibility for the
Health Care District is to advance
access to health coverage for low-
income residents of Palm Beach
County. This is accomplished
through a network of physicians,
hospitals, pharmacies, and ancil-
lary health care providers. The
Health Care. District currently
operates an HMO licensed in the

benefits under the Medicaid pro-
gram.
