Camp goal: Love and care


EDITORS NOTE: This is the
first of a two-part series looking
into the effectiveness of Eckerd
Youth Alternatives' wilderness
camp, located in Hendry County
since 1985.
By Mark Young
Tucked away on 269 acres of
pristine Florida wilderness, amidst
towering oak trees entangled in
native Florida Palms, lies the Eck-
erd Youth Camp Camp E-Tu-
Makee.
Under the guidance and


philosophies of Eckerd Youth
Alternatives, founded by Jack and
Ruth Eckerd in 1968 with the fun-
damental philosophies of love,
care, and respect as the founda-
,tion's goal, the Hendry County
camp currently hosts close to 50
children ranging in ages from 10-
17.
Eckerd Alternatives opened
their first facility in Brooksville and
spread up and down the East
Coast over its 35 years in exis-
tence. Camp E-Tu-Makee broke


ground in 1985, offering a unique
wilderness setting for children to
build their self-confidence and
self-esteem that, very often, they
were not getting from home.
The wilderness camp is con-
sidered to be a "moderate" living
facility in terms of custody, care
and control for juveniles who
were either court ordered or
referred by their parents or school
system to attend.
The average length of stay at
the camp is about one year and


Swinger!: Boy gets needs fulfilled

A grandmother of 12, Joyce Ervin adopted young Brian, who has been diagnosed with
cerebral palsy. Helping Joyce get Brian into his favorite swing Is her granddaughter
Heather Thomas.


Wish comes true for local boy


By Mark Young
Thanks to the ongoing efforts
of Make A Wish Foundation, a
Clewiston special needs child can
now hang out, literally, in his
favorite place.
According to Jennifer Tate, .of
Make A Wish Foundation, the
national organization kicked off
in South Florida in 1983 and has
since helped more than 110,000
children see their dreams come
true many of them experienc-
ing their final dream before suc-
cumbing to disease. But Make A
Wish Foundation doesn't limit
their goals to just children who
are expected to pass away, they
review each child's situation case
by case and when a child is found
who is in need, they act.
Six-year-old Brian Ervin has
Cerebral Palsy, and his one true
love in life is his swing on his back
porch. But the heat of the day and
a multitude of Florida insects very
often limited his time on his


beloved swing, the one real activi-
ty Briah is capable of doing while
at the same time stimulating his
brain activity.
Make A Wish Foundation
answered the call of his adopted
mother, Joyce Ervin, a mother of
four and a grandmother of 12,
with two great-grandchildren on
the way. Make A Wish'recipients
often head to such places as Dis-
ney World or meel .up with their
sports heroes. But in Brian's case,
he can't speak and Joyce said a
trip to Disney World would have
been lost onrBrian.
"He needed something that
would fit his needs," she said.
"He loves to be out on the porch
in his swing. But I couldn't keep
the mosquitoes and Illes away
from him and I'd have to run him
back inside."
Thanks to a newly built screen
porch, compliments of Make A
Wish, Brian can swing well into

while many of the children are
considered to be "in the system",
the camp goes out of their way to
promote everything about respon-
sibility and consequences without
making it appear they are a cus-
tody facility.
"We do everything we can not.,
to promote a jailhouse mentality,"
said Program Director James E.
Green. "We have about a 77 per-
cent success rate as far as these
kids leaving our program and
never breaking the law again. We


have that kind of success because
we confront the problems instead
of isolating the problems in a way
a lockdown facility does where
they may put the youth in cuffs or
lock them away in solitary con-
finement."
Mr. Green said the camp focus-
s. on morals and values and pro-
moting opportunities for the chil-
dren to see success on their own
terms. According to Public Rela-

Museum gets



new design


By MaryAnn Morris
The Clewiston Museum,-
located just off U.S. 27 on
Commercio Street in Clewis-
ton, normally closes for staff
vacations in summer, reopen-
ing in fall for another year.
This year, there will be a dif-
ference.
A new space of 8,800-
square feet of space (the cur-
rent space is around -1,000-
square feet) at 109 Central
Avenue is expected to "wow"
museum goers this fall when
the museum reopens.
It will house the museum.
with greatly enlarged display
space, a library, theater and
sales area, and
classroom,.conference room,
together with offices for the
museum director and the,
executive director .of the
Clewiston Chamber of Conm-


merce and general visitor
information.
Designed by Stevenson
Architects, Inc., the entry area
will lead visitors into the build-
ing, where multiple tall,
arched widows will give natu-
ral light for the interior.
"It's a lot of work," said
museum director Gretchen
DeBree "but the results will
make it all worthwhile. We
will do all the moving this
summer and be able to have
so much more on display."
The Clewiston Garden
Club and the Green Thumb
Garden Club of Clewiston are
making a joint project of the
landscaping. An attractive and
safe pedestrian area and the
area between the building and
Central Avenue will be cre-

Jake brakes



to be outlawed


By Bill Fabian
The Clewiston City Commis-
sion enacted an ordinance last
Monday to prohibit the use of
thunderous engine brakes-.by
trucks traveling within the
Clewiston City limits. Signs will
be posted at the city limits giving
notice to truck drivers of the poli-
cy.
The use of the engine brakes
was defined to the Commission
as any mechanical exhaust,
device, or any other engine
retarding device or system that
brakes on the engine rather than
the wheels as a means of slow-
ing a truck, truck tractor, semi,
motor carrier, or other vehicle.
More commonly known as


Jakee brakes", these brakes are
used to slow the traveling vehi-
cle, which in turn cause a very
loud, but familiar noise that can
often be heard inside buildings
Adjacent to major roadways. The
enactment of this ordinance will
help reduce noise pollution in
Clewiston, which may still feel
other effects of increased traffic
as the area becomes more
developed.
The ordinance will also pro-
vide that signage be posted to
inform drivers of the ordinance.
The city will post and maintain
"conspicuous, clearly legible
road signs," similar to those
See Brakes Page 10


Summer camp is underway


The Recreation Depart-
ment's Summer Camp is one of
the most successful programs
offered by the city of Clewiston,
and parents rush to enroll their
children in. one of the two ses-
sions. Where else can you send
your child for three weeks of fun
for only $35, and they also get a
T-shirt and a daily lunch?
Each year, Recreation Direc-
tor Angie Kelley goes to the
annual FRPA conference and
comes back inspired with excit-
,ing ideas for the next year's
camp. Her association with'the
American Camping Association
has also provided creative activi-
ties. Angie looks at Web sites for
additional ideas, but most of all,
she listens to the kids.
Angie says, "I have been
developing this program for
more than 16 years and each
year gets better. The key to a
successful program is planning,
planning, and more planning.
Counselors, lifeguards, swim-
ming and tennis instructors,


and the support staff who are
enthusiastic and energetic cre-
ate an atmosphere that makes
the children eager to return for
another session." ,
More than 220 campers go to
camp, learn how to swim, and
take tennis lessons each ses-
sion. Camp leaders generally
have a teaching background but
the main requirements are that
they have to love kids, be
responsible, be fun loving, be a
team player, and are not afraid
to get dirty.
Angie implemented the
Counselor-in-Training (CIT)
program that introduces chil-
dren, ages 12 to 15, who are too
old for camp but too young to
work, to the camping experi-
ence. To be eligible, one must
complete the Red Cross Babysit-
ter's Program. CITs provide
invaluable assistance to the
counselors. Each week, a "CIT
of the Week" is recognized for
his or her outstanding volunteer
service, and at the end of the


camp, they participate in a
"Teen Sweep" contest spon-
sored by Wal-Mart and the city.
Teaching children how to
swim is a huge responsibility,
and the swimming instructors
are ready for that challenge
when the pool opens. They
must complete 80 rigorous
hours of Red Cross training
before they are eligible to teach
or serve as lifeguards. They also
work pool, parties where the
$75 fee reserves the pool just for
your party for two hours.
About 25 children are learn-
ing to play tennis, thanks to the
tennis instructors who teach the
basics of the game. The Recre-
ation Department provides ten-
nis racquets and balls. This is
also a three-week course and
costs $25 per session.
The kids stay busy at camp,
swimming, playing outdoor
games, making crafts, visiting
the library for story time, and

Area's horse population is growing


As the South Florida area grows
and changes, the horse population
is increasing. More people seeking
the rural lifestyle are purchasing
* horses for pleasure riding. Some
just have them as pets or "four-
legged lawn mowers." Others are
becoming interested in raising and
showing horses.
Horse owners follow their own
set of safety rules for properly hous-
ing, handling and riding horses.
But those who share a neighbor-
hood with horse owners should
also take care when interacting
with horses.
Horses and humans can easily
co-exist safely as long as the
humans take the time to under-
stand a little about their equestrian


A
Healthier
Life


with Katrina Elsken


neighbors.
For example, if you are out
walking and see a horse next to a
fence, it may be tempting to go
over and pet the horse. But that is
not a good idea unless you first ask
the owner. Some friendly-looking


horses may not want you to pet
them. Horses can bite. Likewise,
never enter a pasture without the
owner's permission, even if the
horse is not near the fence.
If you are a dog owner, obey the
county's leash laws, which require
you to keep the dog under control.
This means that if your dog is out-
side your house, it must be in a
fence or on a leash. If your dog is
loose and gets into a pasture, you
might find yourself liable for any
injuries to the horses, cattle or
other livestock.
Horses can tolerate loud, steady
noises, but may be startled by sud-
den, loud noises. So if you are driv-
ing a car, ATV or other motorized
vehicle near a fenced horse or near


someone on horseback, don't
"rev" the engine or honk the horn.
A sudden, loud noise could spook
the horse, and a frightened horse is
very unpredictable. It could try to
jump a fence or bolt into the path
of vehicle.
Don't litter and don't let others
in your car throw trash on the road-
sides. Cans and glass bottles are a
hazard for horses and for people
who walk along the roadside.
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 medicines. Some drugs
interact badly with foods that
would otherwise be considered
"healthy".

cate as much time to their new
business, their main focus are
their current careers, "but our
tanning salon will be run by fam-
ily members and overseen by us,
so the service will be excellent.
"We will be offering our
clients two tanning beds, one
stand-up booth, which will soon
be upgraded to a spray tanning
booth. We are just beginners,"
said Teri, "but we are very excit-
ed and have ldts of future plans.


:Our main one is to make it a
one-stop-shop, full-service salon
and day spa."
Remember it's hurricane sea-
son, so don't get caught without
that glowing tan. Come on in
and enrich that natural beach
tan that you worked so hard on.
Visit Total Radiance and get your
daily dose of relaxation with a

Airless in Montura
I'm a customer of Glades Electric, living in the Montura area and I
see that Glades Electric has a double standard. Customers in Flaghole,
Montura, Pioneer, and Big Cypress are not a priority customer. It's
hard to understand that on a clear day we have power failures in
places where the power is out for hours. Living in Florida, in the sum-
mer, air conditioning is not a luxury, it is a necessity. Not to forget peo-
ple living in these areas, if they have no electricity, they have no water. I
think it's time Glades Electric steps up to the plate and provides us
with priority service that is provided to other customers.

Pesky pests
To the city of Clewiston, would it be possible for the mosquito
truck please change its time that it makes it rounds from 11 p.m. to
midnight. It is not possible for people to walk or ride their bikes after
dinner when it is cooler. Even though the driver usually does not
always stop spraying when he sees people walking because it's still in
the air and it's unpleasant and I would think terribly unhealthy.

Trash talking
I think it's time we had some rnew garbage men in Clewiston.
They've gotten so soft that they can't pick up a carton or box unless
it's in a plastic box. I've had a cardboard box sitting beside my
garbage can now for four weeks. They won't pick it up and put in it in
the garbage because it's not in a plastic box. If they're too old and crip-
pled, we need to get new garbage men and we need to change the
rules.


Wish

Continued From Page 1
the night, which according to
Joyce, is exactly what he likes to do.
"He likes to sleep all day and
swing all night," she explained.
"We're out here until one or two in
the morning sometimes."
Taking care of a special needs
child can be an exhaustive task for
most anyone, but Joyce considers
it a labor of love beyond measure-
ment. Despite being a grandmoth-
er of 12, Joyce always room in her
heart for another child.
"I adopted Brian at birth," she
recalled. "The real mom still comes
over to see him and she's always
told me that she can't believe I let
her do that. I tell her, 'This baby
needs all the love in the world.' But
so many have helped. When we
needed some special equipment
that Medicaid wouldn't pay for, so
many people came forward."
Joyce said that whenever equip-
Sment is designated for a .special
needs child, "the price tag always
goes way up." Such is the case for
Brian's bedroom dilemma. Brian
was sleeping on a regular bed, but
came close to hanging himself one
night.
Since then, Joyce has been on
the hunt for a bed that will fit
Brian's needs, but a special needs
bed carries a price tag of $4,600.
Following the close call, Joyce now
sleeps with Brian on a air mattress
and is afraid to even put him in her
own bed.
Having a, large family can have
its perks and Brian is the benefici-
ary of a lot of loving support. Joyce
said that everyone in her family
chips in when it comes to helping
out Brian. Currently, Joyce's 10-
year-old granddaughter, Heather
Thomas, is staying with her for the
summer.
"She helps me with everything,"
said Joyce. "Everything from dirty
diapers, to rocking him in his
swing. Brian loves the attention."
Brian is fed through a special
tube, which is inserted directly into
his stomach. He eats every three
hours, and besides the daily
demands of raising a special needs
child, Joyce must also have some


medical knowledge of Brian's con-
dition. When asked why a grand-
mother of 12 would take on such a
large responsibility, her answer
came quick and easy.
"Because I love children," she
said.
Brian's long-term prognosis is
unknown. Joyce said his doctors
are unsure if he will ever walk or
function on his own. Joyce has a
prognosis of her own.
"He hasn't had to go to the hos-
pital in a year and a half," she
explained. "They don't know his
prognosis, but I hope he will walk
some day. He says 'Ma' and 'No,
no.' I can't wait for the day he can
walk. My family thinks that I won't
be able to keep up, but I don't care
if I have to buy a bicycle to keep up,
just so long he walks and I tell them
anyway that, 'I can still work rings
around you.'"
Joyce said Brian is no trouble at
all to take care of and in some
cases, is easier than her other chil-
dren were. --
"Some of them were just,
spoiled rolled hen- they were lit-
tle," she said with a smile. "Brian's
not hard to deal with. You just read
to him and rock him and he loves
it."
Joyce, admittedly, has had
some physical problems of her
own to overcome. Psoriasis almost
claimed her life two years ago, but
she has a mission to complete and
won't leave until she's done so. ,
"It's Brian that keeps me going,"
she said.
Joyce is more than appreciative
for Make A Wish Foundation and
what they were able to do for her
adopted son.
' "Make A Wish is wonderful,"
she said.-"It's not tooorganizations
that you give money to that you
ever see what they do with it. With
Make A Wish, you see the money
going to the children."
The screen porch has an esti-
mated value of $5,000 and a lot of
effort and genuine compassion
went into providing Brian a com-
fortable place for his favorite activi-
ty. It's true that Brian can't vocalize
his thoughts on the subject, but the
smile on his face is worth a thou-
sand words.

Stand firm and let freedom ring


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I still believe in baseball, mom,
and apple pie. Something still
happens to me when I see people
waving flags and hear patriotic
songs being sung. Call me opti-
mistic, but I still believe in one
nation under God. In God I still
trust.
We are privileged to live in a
wonderful country that has an
amazing message for the world.
That message is freedom. Two
hundred and twenty-nine years
ago 56 men signed a document to
state that freedom was not only
important, but also essential. The
preamble to this document, the
Declaration of Independence,
states: "We hold these truths to
be self evident, that all men are
created equal, that they are-
endowed by their creator with
certain unalienable rights, that
among these are life, liberty and
the pursuit of happiness."
Freedom is our heritage as
Americans. Freedom is our legacy
as Christians. But with freedom,
comes a cost and an obligation.


The trut]

The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewis-ton
One young person I knew
be-lieved that her adopted daugh-
ter was really her daughter in a
pre-vious life. She was involved in
spiritualism and the idea that peo-.
ple were reincarnated from past
lives.
After a long, long discussion
about it, she realized that she
believed in reincarnation because
she wanted her daughter to be
really her natural daughter. In
reality, it seems that she believed
in it because of the comfort it
brought to her even if she knew it
wasn't real. That was unfortu-nate
- she deprived herself of her spe-
cial relationship with her daugh-
ter and wanted to hide some-
thing.
One of the screenings that is
regularly given for people suffer-
ing from seeing things or hearing
things that are not really there is to
ask them if they have ever seen or
heard things that are not really
there. If they have, they will
answer "yes" and can tell you
about them. What is apparent is


Fifty-six men signed the Declara-
tion of Independence. Five of
those men were captured as trai-
tors, tortured and killed. Twelve
had their homes ransacked and
burned. Nine fought and died in
the Revolutionary War. Carter
Braxton, of Vir-.
ginia, saw his
trading ships
sunk by the
British Navy.
He sold his
plantation to
pay the debts
and he died in
rags.
John Hart PastorJohn
and his nine Hicks
children were
driven from his wife's bed as she
lay dying. He never saw any of his
family again. Thomas Nelson was
at the Battle of Yorktown with
George Washington. When
informed that the British General
Cornwallis had established his
headquarters in Nelson's home,
he urged. General Washington to
bomb the home. Thomas Nelson
died bankrupt and penniless. ,

What a legacy has been hand-
ed down to us! It is a legacy that
includes a call to action, for we
are the freedom fighters of today.
For our freedom to work, howev-
er, we must be good citizens -
we must vote, pay taxes, obey the
laws, respect property, be loyal
and keep the peace. Also, we
must be careful that we don't
define the freedoms we enjoy so
much solely as "freedom from",
forgetting that the real test of free-
dom's value is how we use our
"freedom to."
It's easy to take freedom and
make it into something it's not
meant to be, or confuse liberty
with license. Sometimes we use
our freedom as an excuse to go
wherever we want to and do
whatever we wish. "I get to
choose. You can't make me. I
don't have to listen to you. I'm my
own man."
The Scriptures tell us that free-
dom is our God-given right, but
we are not to use our freedom as
an opportunity for self-indulgence
(Galatians 5:13). Freedom for
God is not so much a matter of

Letters to the editor


Miracle child
Dear editor:
Sergeant Mike Hall of the Lake
Worth Police Department and Cor-
poral Bob Cresswell of the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office are
joining forces to hold a benefit for
the "Miracle Child of Lake Worth".
On Sunday, May 22, 2005, over
100 of .our fellow officers and the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement's. Child Abduction
Response Team were involved in a
search for a missing eight-year-old
girl. On the list of areas to be
searched was a large landfill about
a quarter-mile from where the girl
was last seen. The minute we
drove into the landfill we had our
'doubts she would be found alive.
The uncertainty was almost a reali-
ty when Sergeant Hall opened the
lid of a rock filled recycling bin and
saw her tiny hand and foot. She did
not respond to the calling of her
name or. the shaking of the bin.
Our hearts grew heavy as we
thought our worst fears were con-
firmed. And then, a few minutes
later, it happened, the movement
ever so slight that it didn't seem
real, but it was. She was alive! She
was alive! It was at that moment, at
10:28 a.m., on a hot Sunday morn-
ing that she touched so many lives,
our families, our friends, many oth-
ers and ours across the nation. Not
only are we extremely happy for
her and her family, but we are also
happy for all the officers involved in
the search that had such an amaz-
ing ending. It isn't often a missing
child is found alive. We have a rea-
son to be thankful, a reason to cele-
brate, for her and for us.
On Sunday, July 10, 2005, a Golf
Tournament will be held at the
Westchester Country Club to raise
donations for the "Miracle Child of
Lake Worth". Donations that will


go towards a scholarship fund for a
college education. A college educa-
tion, which had a few more min-
utes passed, she may not have
grown to experience. Let's give her
something to look forward to in the
future and a chance for us to cele-
brate the day that ended in a "mira-
cle".
Please see Sgt. Mike Hall or Cpl.
Bob Cresswell to sign up for the
golf tournament or to help with the
activities on that day. Kindly pass
the word to your family and friends
who may be interested in the tour-
nament or in making a contribu-
tion to the fund. Donations can be
mailed to Fidelity Federal Bank and
Trust, 412 Lucerne Avenue, Florida
33460. Please make. checks
payable to "Miracle Child of Lake
Worth".
We thank you in advance for
your support and help in making
this benefit a huge success.


A sincere thank you

cere thank you to all those who

that sent condolences. Most impor-
tantly, aside from the food and
flowers provided, we would like to

vails every second, but even more
dominantly in times like these.
Thanks for all your love and sup-

. asserting our own rights as it is
standing -up for the rights of oth-
ers.
Many years ago, Patrick Henry
stood before the Virginia legisla-
ture, the House of Burgess and
urged them to join in the battle for
freedom.
"Why stand we here idle?
What is it that gentlemen wish?
What would they have? Is life so
dear or peace so sweet as to be
purchased at the price of chains
and slavery? Forbid it almighty
God! I know not what course oth-
ers may take; but as for me, give
me liberty or give me death!"
Who in your world is not free?
Who is being oppressed? Are you
willing to stand for freedom today
not just your freedom, but the
freedom of everyone? In the
name of God, with the strength
and love of God, stand and
stand firm. It is for freedom that
Christ has set us free. Stand firm,
then, and do not let yourselves be
burdened again by a yoke of slav-
ery. (Galatians 5:1)


telling it
when evil can cause us to doubt
what we know. For various rea-
sons, there are those who cannot
help themselves because of ad-
diction or illness, but at a certain
level they are aware of the decep-
tion involved. Others work hard at
building stories to comfort them
even if the story is a bit far-
fetched. Still others build for
themselves a system of beliefs
and refuse to hear anything that
might shake them up. Jesus' com-
ment to our spiritual ances-tors
dealt with the truth, "You will
know the truth and truth will
make you free (John 8:32)." That
is not only the things that others
tell us and we may believe, or the
things we tell others, even in good
faith. It is also the things we tell
ourselves that is a truth that
deserves our utmost atten-tion
and respect. Pontius Pilate, who
asks, "What is truth? (John
18:38)" is one who doubts him-
self; the one who proclaims, "I am
the way and the truth and the life
(John 14:6)" gives the final
answer.


this last week of June. God bless
each of you with many more.

Domestic violence assistance program


The Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office has implemented sev-
eral new programs to combat
domestic violence. The tradi-
tional response of law enforce-
ment to domestic violence was
not always effective because
even though the suspect may
have been arrested, the victim
was often left alone without any
assistance.
This in turn was cause for
concern because the root of the
problem was not being
addressed and deputies would
therefore continue to respond to
.the same address time and time
again and the "Cycle of Vio-
lence" would continue. This was
not only placing victims at risk
for further harm, but also endan-
gered the children living in the
home, the responding deputies,
and society as a whole.
The Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office has taken aggressive
steps to combat this "cycle" by
creating various innovative pro-
grams. In 1997, the agency spe-
cially trained a small cadre of
deputies for expertise in investi-
gating domestic violence cases.
Today this unit, known as the
Domestic Abuse Response Team
(DART) has grown to 120 offi-
cers. To work hand in hand with
the DART program, this agency
also initiated the "Volunteer
Domestic Violence Victim Assis-
tance Program".
This program is highly cre-
ative in that it utilizes profession-
al volunteers from the commu-
nity that are specially trained to
work with victims of domestic
violence immediately from the
scene via telephone. This pro-
gram also has a partnership with
"Aid to Victims of Domestic
Abuse" (A.V.D.A.), which is a
local Certified Domestic Vio-
lence Shelter for abused women
and men.
Also, to assist in combating
domestic violence, the Sheriff's
Office has obtained two grants
in order to implement two other
new programs. One of the pro-


grams is the "Internet Project"
which consists of sheriff's
deputies taking photographs of
domestic violence crime scenes
* and transmitting them via the
Internet to first appearance
judges, domestic violence shel-
ters, and victim service
providers.
The other program is the
"KIDS" (Kids In Domestic Situa-
tions) program in which sher-
iff's deputies identify children
living in homes in which domes-
tic violence has occurred so that
the children's names can be pro-
vided to a specific contact per-
son who works for the School
Board of Palm Beach County.
The contact person then
informs each child's guidance
counselor or school principal
about the violence the child has
witnessed, so that follow-up can
be initiated with these children
and counseling can be provided
to them if needed.
The Volunteer Domestic Vio-
Lence Victim Assistance Program
is comprised of a step-by-step
protocol utilized by sheriff's
deputies and D.A.R.T. officers,
which is as follows: Once a
DART Officer responds to a
Domestic Violence call, they
must determine the severity of
the crime and place them into
one of two categories.
Level-1 cases involve serious
injury or severe psychological
trauma to the victim or children
and the victim is often taken to
the hospital. In this instance, the
DART officer will contact a Palm
Beach County Victim Services
Advocate to respond to the
scene or hospital to provide cri-
sis intervention. Fortunately,
only a small percentage of our
cases are classified as Level-1
cases. Level-2 cases (which is
the majority of the domestic vio-
lence responses) involve victims
who do not have severe injuries.
When a level-2 case occurs,
the deputies are trained to get in
contact with the "on-call" Volun-
teer Domestic Violence Victim

Advisor. The Volunteer Victim
Advisor is fully trained on what
questions to ask the deputy over
the telephone regarding the inci-
dent, and then the Volunteer Vic-
tim Advisor requests to speak
with the victim. Once on the
telephone with the victim, the
Volunteer Victim Advisor com-
pletes an "Abuse Indicator
Assessment". This assessment is
a tool utilized to determine the
level of abuse the victim has
been suffering from the abuser
and is used as an indicator of
potential future violence.
The Volunteer Victim Advisor
then goes over a "Safety Plan"
with the victim and provides him
or her with important communi-
ty service referrals. The Volun-
teer Victim Advisor also com-
pletes a follow-up contact with
the victim in order to check on
their safety and to inquire if they
followed through with,the refer-
rals made.
This program has been in
existence since January of 2001
and has helped many victims
break the silence about domes-
tic violence by giving them the
power through knowledge
about the abuse. It has also been
instrumental in making victims
aware of the local services avail-
able to assist them in order to
seek out.help for themselves and
for their children.
The success of this program
can be illustrated in two very sig-
nificant ways. First, over 6,392
victims have been provided with
special assistance through this
volunteer program. Secondly,
since the implementation of the
D.A.R.T. and Volunteer Victim
Advisor Program, the agency has
noticed a steady and significant
decline in Domestic related vic-
tim homicides. This decline is
reflected below in the following
chart, which shows the number
of homicides that occurred in
their jurisdiction over the past
six years:
TOTAL # OF DOMESTIC VIO-
LENCE HOMICIDE CASES YEAR


OCCURRED
Total number of domestic-
violence homicide cases year

Seven-1998
Five-1999
Eight-2000
Implementation of D.A.R.T.
and Volunteer Program
One-2001
Zero-2002
Three-2003
In conclusion, by providing
victims of domestic violence
with an immediate and effective
response from law enforcement
and volunteer victim advisors,
they have been able to collec-
tively increase the safety of vic-
tims and their children while at
the same time send a message
that victims do not need to suffer
in silence. Through this Victim
Assistance Program they have
been able to empower victims
and at the same time let them
know that people within their
own community care about
them and want to help.
If you would like to be part of
the solution to the trauma of
domestic violence, the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office is
presently recruiting profession-
als in the counseling or social
services field to become Volun-
teer Domestic Violence Victim
Advisors. Currently there are 20
Volunteer Victim Advisors but
they are still in need of some
more good people. The volun-
teer hours are very flexible and
you can volunteer out of the
convenience of your home, as
all contacts made with victims
are done via telephone.
If you are interested in volun-
teering and if you want to know
if you qualify to participate in
this program, please contact the
Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office at (561) 688-4195 and ask
for'Marla Galindez (Volunteer
Program Coordinator and
Domestic Violence Victim Advo-
cate).

Trekking across the dangerous
plains of the Serengeti is no place
'for small children, unless the
adventure is born within the imagi-
nation of the child.
Such was the case for local chil-
dren who attended the Serengeti-
themed vacation bible school, held
at First United Methodist Church
last week. For more than 50 chil-
dren, teenagers, and adult teachers,
the week of June 13-17 featured a
ride into the African wilds while
relating their discoveries of exotic
animals to their bible studies.
Each night began with a light
supper, followed by singing, excit-
ing bible study and crafts, and of
course, wild jungle games.

South Florida saturated


from repeated soakings


Drenching rain over the past
several weeks has left all areas of
the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District saturated from the
soakings.
S"While the primary flood
control system continues to
operate as needed to help man-
i age water levels throughout the
region, additional rainfall could
Lead to localized flooding and
ponding of water in some areas
overwhelmed by the down-
pours," said SFWMD executive
director Carol Wehle.
In Miami-Dade County, the
forecast calls for up to an addi-
tional five inches of rainfall. In
response, the District is taking
further action to put recently
completed emergency flood
control measures into operation
in order to reduce the potential
for flooding in low-lying areas
such as Sweetwater, West Miami
and the Flagami area.
Two pumping stations -
completed in 2002 and 2003 -
are already at work near the
Miami International Airport to
move water from the area to the
coast when tides permit. In addi-
tion, for the first time that condi-
tions warranted, water man-.
agers cranked up the G-420
pumping station in order to
move excess water, into the new
C-4 Emergency Detention Basinr
Impoundment just east of,
Krome Avenue off the Tamiami
Trail.
This reservoir is capable of
holding more than one billion
gallons of storm-water runoff.


Wet and wild


The reservoir was constructed
using state and federal funds as
an initiative of the District,
FEMA, Miami-Dade County and
the cities in the C-4 basin
plagued by chronic flooding due
to heavy rain events.
In all other areas of Miami-
Dade and Broward Counties, the
District has placed many of the
large regional canals on low-
range configuration which
means- canal water levels are
adjusted to accommodate large
amounts of storm-water runoff
from the city and county'
drainage systems.
The District will maintain
communications throughout the
night with field crews in South
Florida and will continue flood
control .operation procedures
until the threat of flooding sub-
sides. The District is working
closely with city and county
storm-water agencies through-
out the region to ensure the pri-
mary system is operating at opti-
mum levels.
While the South Florida
Water Management District has
the ability to greatly reduce the
amount and duration of flooding
that may occur, complete flood
prevention is not possible -
especially during rainfall events
that can dump 5-7 inches in iso-
lated areas in a short amount of
time. Downpours like that can
easily, overwhelm local drainage
systems causing street flooding
and potential damage to homes
and businesses.

Youth

tions Director Lance Ramer the
camp is highly structured, but at
the same time offers the juveniles
ample opportunity to learn how to
function as an individual, as part of
a group, and as a member of socie-
ty.
"Through the camp's setup,
these kids learn conflict resolution
and proper social skills through
early intervention," said Mr. Ramer
"But it's not just what they learn
here, it's our aftercare program
where we track their progress once
they leave. We get them mentors,
we get them into clubs like the
Boys and Girls Club, we help them
find jobs, we help them to contin-
ue their education whether its col-
lege or tech school. We don't stop
caring about them just because
they are no longer in the camp."
According to Mr. Green, who,
has worked all facets of operations
for the camp, including the after-
care program, Eckerd employees
stay involved at all times.
"A lot of times there are still stan-
dards set by the courts that have to
be completed," he- explained.
"Whether its community service or
paying restitution or meeting cur-
fews, we make sure they are meet-
ing those standards and we help
them do it. We get them the help
they need whether its meeting
those standards or finding a job."
Mr. Green said there is an intri-
cate network of outside contacts
Eckerd has established, which
includes working closely with the
Workforce Development Council,
the Job Corp, or sometimes its just
assessing the educational needs in
helping a teenager receive a GED
or getting them into adult educa-
tion.
"Sometimes we have someone
who is 19'and is in ninth grade," he

posted at the city limits in Moore
Haven, who have enacted a similar
noise-reducing policy.
The enforcement of the policy
will be carried out by the Clewiston
Police Department, who will issue
a $29 citation for first-time violators,
according to Police ChiefDon Out-
shall.
"It shall be unlawful for the driv-
er of any vehicle to use, permit or
operate a jake brake within the
incorporated limits of Clewiston,
Florida," according to the amend-
ment t6o the city's Code of Ordi-
nances.

become effective immediately
upon adoption, must first undergo

It's not Survivor, nor it is Gilligan's Island. This outdoor

esteem and self-confidence building program at the Eckerd
Youth Camp, in Hendry County.


said. "We have to assess that case
by case and determine what's best
for that situation whether it's help-
ing him get his GED or getting him
into adult education."
But there is another end of the
spectrum. Mr. Green cited one
example where a juvenile entered
the camp, observed to a bright
child, but was disturbed from,
being 'physically and emotionally
abused at home.
"Being able to 'get him here to
work with him and showing him
that not all adults are bad adults by
interacting with our counselors, he
was able he way to suc-
cess," said Mr. Green. "We saw this
individual come in with a loss of
self esteem, but through giving him
the skills he needed to find success,
* his grades improved and he's cur-
rently enrolled in college."
Every aspect of the camp
revolves around education in one


a public hearing set for the next reg-
ular Commission meeting on
August 22.
According to City Manager
Wendell Johnson, the ordinance
may be enforced as soon as a week
after the hearing. He added that the
city will take all measures to com-
ply with the state of Florida's
Department of Transportation stan-
dards while implementing the poll-
cy.
According to the city commis-
sion agenda item report, it was
noted to the staff during the March
regular commission meeting that
signs should be posted at the city
limits to prohibit use of jake brake
equipment due to excessive noise
levels. The Ordinance was entitled
"Ordinance 2005-05", and will pro-
vide that the signs be posted on
FDOT right-of-way.


form or another. The wilderness
aspect of the camp teaches more
than just self-confidence for rough-
ing it. The residents of the camp
build their own. structures from the
ground up. Everything from filling
out their cookout menus, to pur-
chasing their needs from the gener-
al store, to filling out requisition
forms for their campsites, is geared
towards teaching them life skills, as
well as basic math and grammar.
The .campers use sample
checks to purchase supplies and
are taught how to keep their check-
books balanced, as well as priori-
tizing on their purchase lists their
needs before their wants.


Constant evaluations are ever
present within the environment,
within the groups, and within their
selves as individuals. Campsites are
broken down to about 10 residents
per group. They must work as a
team from the time they wake to
the time they go to bed. Planning
sessions and evaluation sessions
on chores and activities are ongo-
ing.
Each night before they go to
bed, the residents light their pow
wow sticks, talk about the good
and bad judgments they made that
day, and toss the stick into the fire.
It signals the end of the day and
whatever took place that day has
passed. There will be no judg-
ments for that day's .activities and
the importance of the lesson that
"tomorrow is another day" issuc-
cessfully taught and understood.
Consequences are often self-
inflicted in terms of one member of
a group may not want to perform
his duties for the day and may be
frustrated and refuse to go to
lunch. That child has the option not
to eat a prepared meal in the com-
fort of an indoors environment and
will have to prepare his own meal
at the campsite. But so will the rest
of the group. Consequences that
one's actions affect those around
you are successfully. taught and
understood.
But children will be children
and there are those few who just
can't be reached and will make
every attempt to buck the system:
When asked what happens to a
child who refuses to adapt to the
program, Mr. Ramer simply said,
"We don't ever give up."

Vacation driving tips for the dog days of summer


Summer is here and many
drivers will be hitting the road for
vacations and weekend get-a-
ways.
"Hot weather brings unique
challenges," said Ray Palermo,
director of public relations for
auto insurer, Response Insur-
ance. "It can present dangerous
conditions for both the vehicle
and its occupants."
Each summer sees more than
seven million car breakdowns on
the road and he suggests that
most summer breakdowns can
be easily avoided.
Before heading out be sure
you check out the basics, includ-
ing: Oil. transmission fluid, wind-


strengtH, tire pressure (including
the spare), cooling system
(which should be flushed and
refilled at least every two years),
belts and hoses and have a well
equipped emergency kit and tool
box in the trunk.
Drivers need to stay cool as
well," noted Palermo. "Our stud-
ies have shown that 75 percent of
drivers are fearful of encounter-
ing road rage and 37 percent said
they had personally experienced
it in the previous six months."
Don't escalate aggression on
the road by responding to it. Stop
periodically to refresh yourself -
take along moist towelettes and
water.


it's particularly important to keep
an eye on the lights and gauges.
If your temperature gauge moves
up, turn off your air conditioner
and turn on your vehicle's heater
to its highest and hottest setting.
It will be uncomfortable, but it
will help draw some of the heat
away from the engine. If you are
stopped in traffic put the car in
"park" and lightly step on the gas
to help circulate coolant. If the
temperature light goes on or if
the gauge enters the red zone,
immediately pull off the road to a
safe spot, well away from traffic.
Do not drive any further not
even to the next exit. Driving with
an overheated engine can cause


Do not attempt to remove the
radiator cap itself. The pressur-
ized coolant is extremely hot and
will spray out with great force.
Do not pour water over the radia-
tor or engine, since a dramatic
change in temperature could
cause damage. After the engine
cools a bit, add a 50-50 mix of
coolant and water to the reser-'
voir to bring it up to its proper
level.
Even when not stranded due
to a breakdown, summer heat
can pose dangers. Never leave a
child or pet in a parked car in
summer heat. Even an outside
temperature in the 80's can
quickly bring a car interior to

Summer pet safety advisory issued ATTENTION


NEW YORK Summer is
here and warmer weather can
mean danger for your cats and
Jogs. The ASPCA(r) (American
Society for the Prevention of Cru-
alty to Animals(r)) issued a pet
safety advisory urging pet owners
:0 protect their companion ani-
mals during the sweltering sum-
mer days:
The organization offers these
guidelines as a way to keep pets
safe when the temperatures
:egin to rise:
Never leave an animal alone in
a vehicle, since even with the
windows open, a parked car,
truck or van can quickly become
a furnace. Parking in shade offers
little protection, as the sun shifts
During the day. When traveling,
carry a gallon thermos filled with.
fresh, cold water for your pet.
Do not force your animal to
exercise after a meal in hot,
humid weather. Always exercise
him in the cool of the early morn-
ing or evening.
Always provide plenty of
shade for an animal staying out-
.side the house. A properly con-
structed doghouse serves best.


A tI tI


Bring your dog or cat inside dur-
ing the heat of the day and let
him/her rest in a cool part of your
house. Always provide plenty of
cool, clean water for your animal.
Please be sensitive to the
needs of old and overweight ani-
mals in hot weather. Brachy-
cephalic (snub-nosed) dogs
(especially Bulldogs, Pugs,
Pekingese, Boston Terriers, Lhasa
Apsos and Shih Tzus) and those
with heart or lung diseases
should be kept indoors in air-con-
ditioning as much as possible.
Avoid walking your dog in
areas that-you suspect have been
sprayed with insecticides or other
chemicals, as poisonings
increase during the summer
when gardens, lawns and trees
are sprayed. These chemicals can
sicken or kill an animal. Call your
veterinarian or the ASPCA Animal
Poison Control Center (1-888-
4ANI-HELP) if you suspect your
animal has been poisoned.
Be alert for coolant leaking
from your vehicle. Animals are
attracted to the sweet taste of
coolant and ingesting just a small
amount can cause an animal's.


death. Consider using animal-
friendly products that use propy-
lene glycol rather than those con-
taining ethylene glycol.
A clean coat can help to pre-
vent summer skin problems, so
keep your dog or cat well
groomed. If he has a heavy coat,
shaving your dog's hair to a one-
inch length will help prevent
overheating. Do not shave a dog's
hair down to the skin this robs
him of protection from the sun. A
cat should be brushed frequently
to keep his coat tangle free. Never
take an animal to the beach
unless you can provide a shaded
spot and plenty of fresh water for
him to drink. Rinse him off after
he has been in. salt water.
Never leave your dog standing
on hot asphalt. His body can heat
up quickly and his sensitive paw
pads can burn.
Bring your companion animal
to the veterinarian for a spring or
early summer check-up -
including a test for heartworm, if
your dog is not on year-round
preventive medication. Ask your
doctor to, recommend a safe pest-
control program to combat fleas


and ticks.
To prevent escape and/or acci-
dental falls, make sure all win-
dows in your home are properly
screened.
About the ASPCA(r):
Founded in 1866, the Ameri-
can Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animal (ASPCA). was
the first humane organization
established in the Western Hemi-
sphere and today has one million
supporters. The ASPCA's mission'
is to provide an effective means
for' the prevention of cruelty to
animals throughout the United
States. The ASPCA(r) provides
national leadership in humane
education, government affairs
and public policy, shelter sup-
port, and animal poison control.
The NYC headquarters houses a
full-service animal hospital, ani-
mal behavior center, and adop-
tion facility. The Humane Law
Enforcement department
enforces New York's animal cru-
elty laws and is featured on the
reality television series Animal
Precinct on Animal Planet. Visit

mation.


Children are at high risk for skin cancer


NEWYORK- Summer is final-
ly here, and more than ten million
children and young .adults will
pack their bags for camp. The
number of day and resident camps
in the U.S. has grown by nearly 90
percent in the past 20 years, which
means that more and more chil-
dren are making their way to the
great outdoors and for long days of
fun in the sun.
What many parents and camp
directors sometimes fail to remem-,
ber is time spent outdoors requires
proper protection against the suns
harmful UV rays.
Sports and outdoor activities
are daily events for children attend-
ing camp. Unfortunately, if chil-
dren are not properly protected,
the time they spend outdoors can
result in painful sunburns, prema-
ture signs of aging later in life and
even skin cancer.
"Just one blistering sunburn in.
childhood can double the risk of
getting melanoma later in life,"
said Perry Robins, MD, president of
the Skin Cancer Foundation. "That
risk can be avoided by following
some simple, sun-safe guidelines."
To protect your children, the
Foundation recommends the fol-
lowing camp-specific sun-safety
tips:
Are counselors trained in sun
safety? UV protection should be a
regular part of training.
"We impress on counselors
that they basically have a parental
role in making sure campers are
protected," said Michael Humes,
director of a particularly sun-safe
camp called Regis-Applejack in the
Adirondack Mountains of upstate
NewYork.


When are outdoor activities.
scheduled? Ideally, most should be
scheduled for earl\ n-,morning or late
afternoon,Aas UL. \. rno'st intense
from 10 a.m. to 4p.m. Are campers
directed to apply sunscreen before
going outside? An SPF 15+ sun-
screen (water-resistant formula-
tions are especially good) needs to
be used regularly. Campers and
staff should be instructed to bring it
from home, apply it 20-30 minutes
before outdoor activities, and reap-
ply it every two hours and right
after swimming. The camp also
should have a supply.
Are campers urged to wear pro-
tective clothing? Historically,
campers wore only a T-shirt,
shorts, artd perhaps a baseball cap.
We now know that's not enough.
"We ask campers and staff to
wear broad-brimmed hats, which
protect more of the face than base-
ball caps do," said Humes.
The Skin Cancer, Foundation
also advises "wearing a long-
sleeved shirt, long pants, and UV-
protective sunglasses. In addition,
washing campers' clothes with a
laundry aid such as SunGuard(r)
will wash a minimum of 30 UPF
protection into clothing and will
last through at least 20 washings.
Is shade available? Shade
should be easily accessible. At
Camp Regis-Applejack, campers'
cabins lie among tall pine trees,
and the athletic fields, beach, and
tennis court are all tree-lined.
With proper guidance, children
can learn to protect themselves
and enjoy, summer fun without
sacrificing the health of their skin.

By MaryAnn Morris
The words of history are spo-
ken by people. Whenever possi-
ble, listen.
The history of Clewiston and
the Lake Okeechobee area begins
with the first prehistoric people to
inhabit the area. But gradually'
people came from across the
oceans in search of new worlds. It
had been suggested by scholars
that the earth was round and that
theory had to be tested.
Orange trees; hogs and cattle
were brought to Florida by early
European explorers. But perma-
nent settlement by European,
African and the Caribbean Island
emigrants came gradually. People
drifted south, down from the
Northern areas, looking for a bet-
ter life. Some who came across
the Atlantic stayed. Settlements
grew near the old U.S. Army Forts
Basinger, Pierce, Lauderdale and
others. Until the invention of, the
steam-driven boat in 1807 by
Robert Fulton, most of Florida
remained a mystery.
But with the ease of steam nav-
igation along Florida's winding
rivers the interior became accessi-
ble to people from the north..
Although there were settlers on
the banks of the Kissimmee River
in the 1860s and .1870s, much of
the area around Lake Okee-
chobee waited.
Cow hunters, descended
mainly from Scottish and Irish
emigrants who had settled in
Georgia and the Cagolinas found a
good living in Central Florida in
the mid-1800s. These cattlemen
.came from the. cattle herding cul-
ture in the British Isles, so it was
!second nature to round up. the
.wild cattle on the prairies of Cen-
tral Florida with herd dogs like the
Scottish border Collies and drive
them across the state to the port
of Punta Rassa on the Gulf Coast.
The dense palmetto and thick
woods of Central. Florida were
nothing like the open prairie of
the American West. Both brand-
ing and earmarking of livestock
have their roots in Celtic culture.
Florida asked Congress for the
land south of the Caloosahatchee
River, north of Lake Okeechobee,
from the Gulf of Mexico to the
Atlantic Ocean around 1847. Con-
gress realized that the long coast
of Florida was a threat to' national
,security and the shipping trade
and granted the state's request in
1848, on the condition that the
land be "reclaimed by drainage."
In 1855, the State Legislature
passed the Internal Improvement
Act. A report to the trustees of the
fund stated, "drainage of the
immense territory embraced in
the Kissimmee Valley, Okee-
chobee Lake and Caloosahatchie
Valley had for at least a generation
been the theme of discussion, by
eminent engineers educated in

Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history


'. a
. .i f A" .


the principles of Hydraulics."
Florida was $5 million in debt,
having backed railroad projects
that had been disrupted by the
Civil War.
Hamilton Disston, a young
rr.an from Phrladelphia had inher-
ited a forturie fr:rn his fairer. His
faihetr marnufactuied '.salws. Mr.
Disst,'n bcoughi tih land, over one
million acres, from the state in
January of 1:881. The state,
though, needed cash to clean up
and title these lands. To help the
state, Mr. Disston was. persuaded
to buy four million more acres of
land at 25 cents an acre in June of'
1881. The deal made him the
largest landowner in the United
States.
The first dredge boat was built
at Cedar Key. Steam-powered,
she came down the Gulf coast to
Charlotte Harbor and up the
Caloosahatchee River. The
Caloosahatchee was cleared out,
and on the other side of the lake,
the Kissimmee River was cleared
to 50 feet wide and eight feet deep
and fallen trees were removed
from the channel.
By 1882, there was a 350-mile
continuous waterway from the
city of Kissimmee to the Gulf of
Mexico and the Lake Okeechobee
area was open to steam boats.
Ranchers then dug smaller
channels to link up with Disston's
canal system, draining their
iharshes for pastureland in the


process. More channels were dug
from the south shore of the lake
and for the first time, more water
flowed out of the lake than in. As
a result, groundwater levels
dropped sharply.
Mr. Disston purchased half
interest in a sugar plantation in
1887. It paid off and he expanded.
In addition, his land companies
promoted prices starting at $1.25
an acre (five times the 25 cents an
acre he paid in 1881) 'for farming
throughout this country and
"Europe. If not for Mr. Disston's
vision, much of Central Florida
would be more suitable today for
mosquitoes than people and cat-
tle.
Word of Mr. Disston's success--
ful sugar mill and plantation
caught the ear of Tampa banker
Alonzo C. Clewis. Son of a Geor-
gia plantation owner, he came to
Tampa in 1888 to work for Hills-
boro Loan and Abstract. After the
steamboats came to Basinger, it
became busier. Shortly after that,
in terms of a brief history, Peter
and Louisiana 'Raulerson left
Basinger to settle closer to the
northern 'shore's of the lake in
1896.
You had to like adventure!
What we are really talking about
here is best explained by Mrs. M.F.
George, who left Palm Beach July
27, 1915 with her husband, five
other men, four women and two
young boys for the Everglades
and Lake Okeechobee. She
turned the account of her experi-
ences into an article, published in
1917. These are sturdy people.
She wrote: "We had great air-
castles built as to what we were
going to do and the outing we
were going to have. All kinds of
scary tales had been told us about
the dangers of wild animals,
whirlpools'in the New River and
the great Lake Okeechobee,
which was supposed to have a
,muck bottom and should your,


boat upset in one of the much-
talked-of sudden storms, you
would sink out of sight and keep
on going as though you were in
quicksand with no chance of res-
cue."
After five and a half days of
river travel, fromrf Lake Worth by
way of Fort Lauderdale and up the
New River the party arrived at
Ritta on the south shore of the
lake. They slept in the Bolles
Hotel. After a short time there,
they set out across the Lake to
Moore Haven.
The party reached Moore
Haven Oct. 1, 1915 and found, as
Mrs. George wrote: "One
screened tent, occupied by Mrs.
King and her cook and used as a
boarding house, t\\o other very
small buildings of one room
each."
As to the land, she continues:
"The ground was only partially
cleared and so full of cracks that it
was dangerous to walk about for
fear of breaking and ankle. I think
this point must have been burned
over at some time previous, leav-
ing it exposed to the hot sun
which caused the soil to crack.."

Zoo keel

NAPLES According to a
recent study, less than two per-
cent of the nation's cell phones
are being recycled and about a
quarter of all cell phones and
their toxic materials are dis-
posed of in landfills.
The majority of cell phones,
however, are still at home or
work sitting in a desk drawer.
The good news is that all those
phones lying around can be
cleared out of the house and
recycled. In order to help
wildlife and raise money for a
yet to be announced Zoo exhib-
it, members of Naples Chapter
of the American Association of
Zoo Keepers, Inc. (AAZK) have
set up collection boxes at
Caribbean Gardens: The ZOO
in Naples, Chrissy's Wild Side
Caf, The Conservancy Nature
Center, and St. Francis Animal


)ers accept old cell phones


Clinic.
Helping Wildlife? Mining for
columbite-tantalite (or coltan),
a key component in cell
phones, takes place in some of
the most wildlife rich environ-
ment in Africa where mining
activities have contributed to a
90 percent decline in gorilla
populations and similar
declines in other species in the
Congo's national parks.
"While companies and gov-
ernments negotiate solutions,
we can come alongside them
by insuring we do the right
things with our used phones,"
explained Stephanie Bolster,
AAZK Naples Chapter Liaison.
"This is also a bonus for the
zoo's animals as our partner in
this donates funds to the AAZK
chapter for many of the
phones. And since most people

Attorney General

responds to Supreme

Court's Grokster ruling


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist issued the
following statement on the U.S.
Supreme Court's decision in
MGM Studios vs. Grokster, in
which the justices unanimously
ruled that software developers
violate federal copyright law
when they take "affirmative steps
to foster infringement" by provid-
ing computer users with the
means to share files downloaded
from the Internet. The Attorney
General's Office filed an amicus
(friend-of-the-court) brief with
the Supreme Court that argued
the position ultimately adopted
by the Court.
"The Supreme Court has sent
a clear message that illegal con-
duct on peer-to-peer computer
networks will be punished,


whether it is for stealing copy-
righted material or distributing
child pornography. Peer-to-peer
networks make it entirely too
easy for child pornographers to
swap pictures and videos with
one another and for unsuspect-
ing children to come across
images never intended for their
innocent eyes. The Court's ruling
is a victory for parents as they try
to protect their children from this
despicable activity.
"Today's decision echoes the
arguments we made into the
court, that those who help in the
commission of a crime are just as
responsible as those who actually
commit the illegal act. We will be
watching the actions of all peer-
to-peer providers to see how they
respond to this decision."

Lawsuit won over sale of phony insurance bonds


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist announced
his office has won a lawsuit
against a state of Washington-
based company that sold fraudu-
lent bonds purporting to elimi-
nate the need for ,standard
insurance coverage, a false
claim that cost 425 Florida vic-
tims $300 per person, for a total
loss of $127,500.
Leon County Circuit Judge
Jonathan Sjostrom entered a
final judgment against Global
Healings Society and owner
Joseph Michael Gardinier,
requiring the defendants to pay
restitution, as well as fines of
$1,000 per victim, a total of more
than $550,000.


"This judgment marks a victo-
ry for Florida consumers and
sends a clear message that fraud
of this type has no place in our
state," said Crist. "Floridians
depend on insurance offered by
reputable agents to protect them
from significant financial liabili-
ty, and those offering, phony
alternatives face serious legal
consequences."
An investigation conducted
by the Attorney General's Eco-
nomic Crimes Division revealed
that Global Healings Society was
selling what it claimed were
"financial bonds" over the Inter-
net. Gardinier, owner and care-
taker of the organization, direct-
ed its activities and was


responsible for the various bond
programs sponsored by Global
Healings.
The bonds purported to pro-
tect the bearers from financial
responsibility in the event of any
incident that would warrant an
insurance claim. Not only were
the bonds fraudulent, but there
was no money available for the
injured party in the event that a
claim was filed against a bearer
of the bonds. Types of bonds
offered by Global Healings
included an auto bond, a health
bond, a home equity bond, a
student bond, a "Benefit for Life"
bond and a community financial
bond.
The organization was not


licensed to do business in Flori-
da, nor was it an authorized
insurer in the state.
The Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Motor Vehi-
cles determined that the organi-
zation's auto bond card was not
valid to prove insurance cover-
age as required by law. In
response, Gardinier conducted a
series of conference calls to
members of the organization
soliciting donations to cover the
cost of suing the state of Florida.
Similar solicitations were
made in Montana and Washing-
ton, where Global Healings has
already been prohibited from
conducting business.

Florida will benefit from Central American pact


WASHINGTON, D.C A pro-
posed trade pact between the
United States and six Central
American countries would
Enhance Florida's economy while
bringing significant economic
benefits to the nation's regional
- trading partners, said U.S. Rep.
Katherine Harris of Florida.
The Dominican Republic-Cen-
tral American Free Trade Agree-
ment (DR-CAFTA), which is
expected to come before Con-
gress in the coming weeks, would
I create a free trade zone between
the United States and Costa Rica,
El Salvador, Guatemala, Hon-
duras, Nicaragua and the Domini-
can Republic. Harris, a longtime
advocate of trade policies to


expand markets for U.S. products,
is a strong supporter of the CAFTA
bill because of the economic
growth and jobs it.would bring to
Florida communities.
"With this trade agreement,
we have the opportunity to pro-
mote growth and economic
opportunity in our hemisphere
that will benefit everyone
involved," Harris said. "The coun-
tries named in DR-CAFTA repre-
sent Florida's largest export mar-
ket. By lowering trade barriers,
we can develop that market even
further, which is good news for
Florida business, good news for
Florida agriculture, and good
news for Florida workers."
The DR-CAFTA pact would


create a level-playing field for
'American businesses, farmers
and ranchers, and workers by
lowering trade barriers on exports
to Central America. Harris point-
ed to key facts about Florida trade
with Central American and how
the DR-CAFTA pact would benefit
the state:
DR-CAFTA would increase
U.S. agricultural exports to Cen-
tral American countries by nearly
$900 million.
Eliminate tariffs on 50 per-
cent of all U.S. exports immedi-
ately. Most remaining- duties
would be eliminated within 15
years. Eliminating duties would
benefit a number of. Florida's
industries and agricultural pro-


ducers, including meat and poul-
try producers.
For manufacturers, DR-
CAFTA would immediately elimi-
nate tariffs on 80 percent of U.S.
exports. Within 10 years, all man-
ufacturing tariffs would be elimi-
nated including tariffs on Flori-
da's electrical products,
chemicals, machinery, paper,
processed food and transporta-
tion equipment; This would
enhance competitiveness and
level the playing field for Florida
manufacturers, since most
exports from Central American
countries enter the United States
without tariffs.
Florida is the main gateway
for merchandise trade between


Central America and the United
States roughly $16 billion in
goods enter or leave the United
States annually through Florida's
airports and seaports, providing
thousands of jobs for the state.
Harris also emphasized the
importance of Central American
markets for Florida exports a
relationship that would only
improve with the implementation
of DR-CAFTA. In 2004, DR-CAFTA
countries represented Florida's
largest export market, with $3.2
billion worth of Florida products
going to these countries. Florida is
the leading U.S. state in exports to
Central America.
Harris urged Floridians to learn
more about the DR-CAFTA pact,


which she will support when it
comes before the U.S. House of
Representatives.

"Anti-trade forces have worked
tirelessly to paint the Central
American trade agreement in a
negative light, but their claims
simply don't stand up to the
facts," Harris said. "Both Florida
and the DR-CAFTA countries
stand to gain a great deal from
this agreement. The simple fact is
that Florida needs this trade
agreement, and so does Central
America. I encourage the people
of Florida to learn more about DR-
CAFTA and how it will help our
state's economy."

Water resource challenges
and solutions of the past, pres-

well as present Gov. Jeb Bush.
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection Secretary.

agement districts arid the Flori-
da Department of Environmen-
tal Protection, representatives
from academia, and members
of the business community.

sions on topics such as the his-
tory and future of water man-
agement, environmental
restoration,, water supply and
technology in water manage-
ment will be featured during

Red leafed hibiscus


When does a Hibiscus look
like a Maple tree? An office v'itor
brought in a cutting to identify
last week from a low mainte-
nance shrub with a dark red
three-lobed leaf. A little searching
showed that this plant was False
Roselle, which can quickly add a
patch of deep maroon color to
your Florida Yard.
False Roselle, Maroon mallow,
Red-Shield hibiscus and Cranber-
ry hibiscus are all different names
for Hibiscus acetosella. A tropical
African native, it has been collect-
ed to the point of disappearing in
those lands. Not only does it have
use as an attractive short-lived
flowering perennial in the land-
scape, its young leaves and
shoots have been added to salads
for color, cooked with rice or veg-
etables because of their slightly
acid flavor and are sometimes


used for tea.
One of the challenges about
this plant is that it is confused
with another Hibiscus plant
known as Roselle, sometimes
called Florida Cranberry (H. sab-
dariffa). Roselle is grown in the
tropics for its red-seed pod that is
cooked, preserved or used in
teas. A popular brand of herbal
hibiscus tea uses Roselle fruit as
its source, not the False Roselle.
Young leaves of this Maroon
Mallow are burgundy, and get
darker and turn grayish as they
become older. The plant stickers
and thickens quickly, and may
reach a height of 10 feet, if left un-
pruned. But if allowed to grow
too tall, the woody stems will
bend and break. As an ornamen-
tal, it looks best if kept trimmed to
a three-six foot height, which
encourages branching and a

Harris vows to fight offshore oil inventory issues


WASHINGTON D.C. U.S.
Rep. Katherine Harris, of Florida,
vowed last Tuesday to fight a pro-
posed inventory of offshore oil
and gas resources off the state's
Gulf Coast.
The U.S. Senate voted last
Tuesday to conduct the oil and gas
inventory in the Western Gulf of
Mexico, an area where oil and gas
exploration has been banned
since 1981, when Congress placed
a moratorium on the develop-
ment of oil and gas sources in the
area. Currently,, the moratorium is
scheduled to expire in 2012.-


"This inventory scheme is an
attempt to make an end-run
around the protections that Con-
gress placed on the Outer Conti-
nental Shelf to protect the marine
habitat and ecology of the Gulf,"
Harris said. "I have stood with my
colleagues in the Florida delega-
tion to ensure that these protec-
tions are kept in place, and I will
continue to do so. We'll fight to
ensure that this fragile ecosystem
is not victimized by those who
would subject these areas to oil
and gas drilling, for the good of
our environment and our state's


tourism industry."
Harris, who represents Flori-
da's 13th District along the state's,
Western Gulf Coast, noted that the
inventory amendment would
compromise the protections
extended by the moratorium,
potentially opening the door to oil
and gas drilling in an environmen-
tally sensitive area, with disastrous
consequences for the Western
Gulf.
The inventory calls for "seismic
3-D exploration surveys," which
produce powerful and repeated
explosions in the water and would


be disruptive and harmful to the
sea life in the area, as well as to the
state's tourism industry. Harris
also noted that increased oil
exploration in the Gulf could be
disruptive to military training exer-
cises in the area.
The inventory amendment
was sponsored by Sen. Mary Lan-
drieu of Louisiana, a vigorous sup-
porter of expanded oil and gas
exploration in the Gulf. Harris
vowed to, continue the fight
against the inventory-from her
seat in the U.S. House of Repre-
sentatives.

Police cars


are not



commercial
` DAVIE Attorney General
Charlie Crist concluded that a
police officer can park a police
car in the driveway of his home
even though a homeowners
association rule bars "commer-
cial" vehicles from being parked
in the neighborhood. Crist deter-
mined that police cars are not
commercial vehicles, and there-
fore the association's rules can-
not prevent the officer from leav-
ing the cruiser in his driveway
when he is off duty.
Crist issued Attorney Gener-
al's Opinion 05-36, at the request
of Davie Town Council member
Susan Starkey, who on behalf of,
the town asked for a formal
determination of whether a
marked police vehicle assigned
to a law enforcement officer is a
commercial vehicle.
S "Public safety is the first duty
of government, and law enforce-
ment officers are among the
most heroic citizens in our socie-
ty," said Crist. "To suggest that
these officers are somehow
Engaged in commercial activity
Stretches common sense
Beyond the breaking point. Offi-
Scers provide an invaluable pub-
lic service, and the visible pres-
ence of a police car in a
residential neighborhood can
Only contribute to the safety of
That neighborhood."
S The opinion was requested in
*response to the situation of
Miami Beach police officer Kevin
Millan, a resident of the Davie
neighborhood of Garlton Ranch-
es. The neighborhood's home-
owners association said Officer


Millan's practice of parking his
police cruiser in his driveway
violated association rules against
commercial vehicles.
The attorney general traveled
to Officer Millan's home to pres-
ent the opinion personally to
Council member Starkey and
Officer Millan.
