The qualifying period for citi-

place on the ballot for city com-

those wishing to be considered
for a commission seat will be

primary elections are to be
held, if necessary.
Voters must register in time
to be eligible to vote at the
Clewiston primary election


before the deadline, which is 5

will be held Aug. 30. Primaries
will only be necessary if any of
the sitting candidates have

Members of the Clewiston
City Commission are elected at-

At each general election,

Medical



lab receives



accreditation


By Bill Fabian
The Hendry Regional Med-
ical Center celebrated an
impressive accolade for its lab-
oratory facilities at the hospital
in Clewiston, when it received
an accreditation from the Col-
lege of American Pathologists
(CAP). The HRMC lab was
awarded an accreditation by
the Commission on Laboratory
Accreditation of the CAP, based
on the results of a recent on-site
inspection.
Laboratory .Director Mike
O'Keefe \\as adsised of this
national recognition, and con-
gratulated for the "excellence

CAP-accredited laboratories

Despite recent public scruti-
ny of each the hospital's depart-

raises in taxes, the HRMC has
weathered several storms and
appears to be in a steady state
of improvement. The accredita-

Be ready


for the

hurricane

,season
As hurricane season progress-
es, Floridians have gotten used to
;* checking the National Hurricane
Center's Web site regularly. If
-your hurricane supplies are
stocked up, other precautions can
help get you through the storm
" season:
Keep the laundry caught up
as much as possible. If a storm is
headed our way, you'll be glad to
have clean clothes and lots of dry
towels. And if we don't have a
hurricane, you'll still need clean
clothes.
Gas up all of your vehicles -
1 you might need them. For exam-
ple, if a tree falls across the drive-
way, trapping your family car in
the garage, you'll be glad if you
gassed up the truck you don't
drive very often.
e If you have an RV, keep it
fueled. One reader told me that
after Hurricane Frances left their
neighborhood without power, the
family piled into the RV, only to
find it was out of gas. The last
time they drove it, they forgot to
fill it up.
Check the food you have in
Sthe freezer and consider eating
some of it. If the power is out for
an extended time, running a gen-
erator to just keep a freezer cold
can get expensive especially
.considering the price of gasoline.
Reducing the amount of perish-
able food on hand means that
much less to spoil.
-, ,9 If you have room in the
,freezer, start saving ice so you
, won't have to buy it in case of a
, storm. If a storm is coming close,
fill a cooler with drinks and ice. If
you go to a shelter, you'll want to
take the cooler with you. If you
4stav home and our hqoe loses
power, you'll have cold drinks on
Jrhand. (If we don't have a storm,
,you can use the extra ice for par-
' ties.)
If you have a generator, read
Sthe instruction manual and work
lout a chart for which appliances
; can be plugged into it at the same
time. If you don't have the instruc-
tion manual, look up the manu-
facturer online to get one. Last
year some people damaged appli-
ances or started fires by misusing
a generator.
If you have pets, make sure
you keep stocked up on dry
and/or canned food for them. And
make sure you have a plan for
what you will do with them if you
have to evacuate. Most shelters
cannot accept pets. Some hotels
will accept small animals, but you
need to call in advance.
Before making any changes in
your diet or exercise plan, consult
your doctor. This is especially
important if you are on any pre-
scription medications. Some
drugs interact badly with foods
that would otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy".

books to enhance its library. E-
Tu-Makee earned the distinction
from among more than 1,000
applicants competing for one of
160 grant awards totaling
$770,000..
Funds will be used to pur-
chase books to support a com-
prehensive bibliotherapy com-
ponent of the library program.
Bibliotherapy (utilizing books
and storytelling to help children
cope with life) has been used
extensively with the camp's pop-
ulation as a successful "adjunc-
tive" therapy to the intensive
therapy provided outside the
instructional program.
Books must, first of all, be
chosen for their literary merit,
because reading quality litera-
ture is beneficial to students,
even outside the context of bib-
liotherapy. The focus will be on
literature that reflects the
increase of societal and familial
problems that our youth face, as
well as "grief and loss, and sub-
stance abuse."
Media and instructional staff
will also involve themselves with
students in mutual sharing of lit-
erature and how problems have
been solved by others with simi-
lar issues.
It is a major .focus of the
camp's school program to instill
in students that reading for infor-
mation and pleasure is a neces-
sary and positive lifelong activity.
It is also important for students
to understand that they share
.common issues and problems
with other youth in society.
Funds to support a compre-
hensive bibliotherapy compo-
nent will assist the camp in
achieving their therapeutic pro-
gram goals: to enhance the heal-
ing process; to promote cogni-
tive development, and learning;


to stimulate creativity and imagi-
nation; and to develop positive
attitudes toward books.

Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the Clewiston issues blog at http:/riewsblog.info/0902. It is a home-
town forum so visit the page as often as you would like and share your
comments (but no personal attacks or profanities, please). You can
also make a comment by calling our Speak Out 24-hour
opinion line at 983-9140. Comments will be published in the newspa-
per as space permits.
THE GRASS IS GREENER. In regards to this week's Speak Out, the post
office did go through a transition period that, unfortunately, the grounds
were let go. Thankfully, approximately two months ago, we were able to
contract Season 2 Season to take care of it. So, I say you should visit us
again soon to see the cared for lawn.

YOU'VE GOT GAS: The gas companies in Clewiston and this area
upped the prices due to the storm. I don't know what the deal is, but they
all raised the prices between seven and eight cents over the period of the
storm. I really don't think that's fair to people around town. I don't really
understand that at all. It makes me not trust the local companies for doing
this crazy thing.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. This call was extremely garbled and
we did our best to transcribe it while keeping its' meaning and apologize
for guessing on some of the words. But the spirit of the call remains intact
and we can tell you that the gas price issue in Clewiston has been on the
minds of many people. There are several complicated factors that go into
gas pricing across the state, but the Clewiston News is investigating the
legitimacy of those factors. This caller also registered complaints about
the need for the levy and the expense of paving a walkway on top it, but
again, most of the call contained too much static to transcribe.

NARCOTICS ANONYMOUS IS NOT NARCONON: I'm calling about
the article in the July 14 issue: Marijuana related ER visits. I just want to
point out to people that you are referencing L. Ron Hubbard who is the
founder of Scientology and Narconon is the drug rehabilitation or service
for Scientology, it is not the same as Narcotics Anonymous. Narconon
costs you money and NA is free. If you have a problem and are interested
in getting help, Narcotics Anonymous address on the Web is
www.na.org. Thankyou.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling and for that clarification. Those arti-
cles were submitted to us andwe chose to run them as apublicservice as
to the dangers of "smoking pot". Itwas not our intention to promote any
organization, and we do recognize the great benefits of Narcotics Anony-
mous.

LOOKING IN THE MIRROR: Some people tend to forget that they are
not perfect and judge others. In this case, it is a very complicated one.
Because it involves divorced parents dealing with their spouses. I am a
parent, by all means not perfect, but I truly love and thank God everyday
for giving me my miracles. The worse thing is dealing with their new wife
or husband. They pretend and think they have peopled fooled, but my
friend we both know the truth always comes out. They know who they
are and I pray that God can one day erase all the hurtful things they have
said to each other for the sake of their children. The irony is my ex hus-
band is so caught up with his newwife that he does not see any wrongdo-
ing on her part. She pretends to be the victim all the time and blame the ex
wife. I know I am not alone. This will touch a lot of people and doing so,
maybe they can look in the mirror and see that they are more troublemak-
ers than victims. From one mother to another mother.

Don't let the scorpions win


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
A holy man was engaged in his
morning meditation under a tree
whose roots stretched out over the
riverbank. During his meditation
he noticed that the river was rising,
and a scorpion caught in the roots
was about to drown.,
He crawled out on the roots and
reached down to free the scorpion,
but every time he did so, the scorpi-
on struck back at him. An observer
came along and said to the holy
man, "Don't you know that's a
scorpion, and it's in the nature of a
scorpion to want to sting?" To
which the holy man replied, "That
may well be, but it is my nature to
save, and must I change my nature
because the scorpion does not
change his?"
There is a lot going on around
us and there is a lot of pressure for
us to close our eyes to certain situa-
tions, to compromise some of the
values we have, and in some
instances to change our very
nature because of the nature of
those around us.
Should we change our nature
just because the scorpions of the
world do not change theirs?
Any successful artist or athlete
will tell you there is a price to be
paid for excellence. There is sacri-
fice, but there is also reward. Like-
wise, with Christians, there is a
price to be paid for excellence.
Sometimes we may get stung. But
there is also a reward.
It has been my observation that
even the holiest people I know


have grown in wisdom and grace
over time by paying the price, every
day, of living a life of faith. Not
many of us will rise to the fame of a
Billy Graham or a Mother Theresa,
but all of us may be an example in
the faith that will inspire someone
and make a powerful impact.
Several centuries ago 'in a
mountain ,village- in Europe, ..a
wealthy nobleman wondered
what legacy he should leave to his
townspeople. He decided to build
them a church. No one was per-
mitted to see the plans or the inside
of the church until it was finished.
At its grand opening, the people
gathered and marveled at the
beauty of the new church. It was a
masterpiece.
But then someone said, "Wait a
minute! Where are the lamps? It is
really quite dark in here. How will
the church be lighted?" The noble-
man pointed to some brackets ii
the walls, and then he gave each
family a lamp, which they were to
bring with them each time they
came to worship. "Each time you
are here," the nobleman said, "the
place where you are seated will be
lighted. Each time you are not here,
that place will be dark. This is to
remind you that whenever you fail
to come to church, some part of
God's house will be dark."
Each of us has a light to shine..
Without it, the world will be darker.
The poet Edward Everett Hale had
this thought: I am only one, but still I
am one. I cannot do everything, but
still I can do something. And because
I cannot do everything, I will not
refuse to do the something I can do.

Letters to the Editor


Camp E-Tu-Makee
celebrates reading
Dear editor:
Camp E-Tu-Makee, an Eckerd
Youth Alternatives, Inc. Wilder-
ness Education program, had a
wonderful celebration on June 6
in honor of our second RIF
(Reading is Fundamental) Com-
munity Reading Challenge Award
as Florida Small School State
Champions of 2005.
The kids worked enthusiasti-
cally the previous week to gener-
ate book lists (we purchased a
new book for each child with
$500 worth of Borders Bookstore
gift cards, which were awarded
to us from RIF), create a recipe
for an ice-cream cake and then
made the cake for the party (the
most delicious ice-cream cake
ever!), and decorated chuckwag-
on with theme-related window
paintings.
All of this was done in great
anticipation for the grand cele-
bration of the campers of E-Tu-
Makee's achievements in read-
ing.
We had a number of commu-
nity members join us for our cele-,
bration to help reinforce the
importance of reading and to.
congratulate our kids on their
recent accomplishments. Hunter
Latham donated cool Harry Pot-
ter bookmarks for each child and
soft drinks for everyone. In addi-
tion to Mr. Hunter, Police Chief
Don Gutshall, Kathy Crawford,
Johanna Huss, Jeremy Crossland;
and Christina Bodie all joined in
with the festivities.
Each of our guests participat-
ed in passing out books, book-
marks, "reading is magic" wrist
bands, "super reader" pencils,
and RIF Medals to the kids. Keith
Philipson (EYA Director of Educa-
tion Services) and Rick Wolfe
(EYA Education Specialist) spoke
eloquently about the importance
of reading for everyone and the
significance of our campers'
accomplishments in reading and


then presented us with an EYA
trophy for reading.
The kids are extremely proud
of their award and the recogni-
tion that they have received.
Thanks to all of our community
members and the EYA Corporate
representatives for taking the
time out of your very busy days to
acknowledge our efforts!

Accomplish your
education goal
Dear editor:
The Community Services
Block Grant Program of Hendry
County will be taking applica-
tions from low-income candi-
dates that are preparing or are
prepared to further their educa-
tion or job skills and are needing
support services to accomplish
their goals.
The objective of CSBG is for
low-income families or individu-
als to become self-sufficient by
increasing needed education or
job skills to attain employment or
.better employment. that can
enable them to move off assis-
tance programs.
The candidates will follow a
managed case plan determined
by the individual and a case man-
ager on goals and steps needed
to follow to attain self-sufficiency.
Support services may be daycare,
travel, uniforms, supplies or a
need to be determined by the
candidates.
Education is not a primary
expense as many grants, loans
and programs are already in exis-
tence, but many students lack
resources to help get them to a
class and be able to complete the
course of study or skill.
We will be looking for candi-
dates who will be committed to
following through on a case plan


with monthly attendance and
grade reports. You may apply by
calling Anna for more informa-
tion at 675-5356 from August 1-5.
Sincerely:
Anna Ripperdan
Ladie Auxiliary VFW
supports our troops
Dear editor:
One of the highest goals of the
VFW and Ladies Auxiliary is car-
ing for the men and women serv-
ing in the U. S. Armed Forces. The
Ladies Auxiliary VFW Post 4185
in Clewiston is committed to
honoring our military personnel.
Many of us are aware of the
consequences and sacrifices of
war. We have loved ones fighting
the war on terrorism in Iraq and
Afghanistan. We have lost loved
ones and we have friends and rel-
atives uncertain if and when they
will also be called to serve over-
seas. Our troops leave loved ones
behind and face an uncertain
future but they face that future
with courage and dignity.
Today's military personnel are
not just fighting the enemy -
they are acting as policemen,
peacekeepers and humanitarians
keeping watch on foreign soil,
bringing food and medical sup-
plies to those oppressed by ter-
rorism.
The VFW has worked to make
sure our military is well trained
and equipped to fight and that
they are properly compensated,
honored and supported. But still
they are in desperate need of per-
sonal supplies and items to make
their lives more enjoyable, to
boost their morale or to put a
smile on their faces. Basic items
such as foot powder, shoe
insoles, deodorant, magazines,
batteries, microwave popcorn,
facial tissue, shaving cream, dis-
posable razors, pens, paper,
envelopes, mouth wash, snack
foods and many, many more
things.
A soldier serving in a foreign
country gets very. lonely and


homesick and one of the best
ways to cheer them up is to send
cards and letters. These cards and
letters are a way of "Supporting
Our Troops" and saying thank
you for serving. Many soldiers
away from home, many for the
first time, are asking for cards, let-
ters and care packages.
Many more soldiers are recov-
ering from wounds in hospitals
overseas, as well as here in the
United States. They also are in
desperate need of cards and let-
ters they need to know they
did not and do not risk their
lives in vain.
The Ladies Auxiliary VFW Post
4185 here in Clewiston is com-
mitted to honoring and "Support-
ing Our Troops" and we are ask-
ing the community to help us
collect items, cards and letters to
send to our troops.
The list of items needed is long
and each day new troop units
asking for them are added to the
list. The Ladies Auxiliary is asking
everyone to join us in "Support-
ing Our Troops" by donating
items and writing cards and let-
ters addressed to "Any Soldier".
Children's.cards and letters are
especially appreciated and the
best way to make a soldier smile.
If you, individually, or you and
other members of your church or
organization are interested in
helping, please join us in our
effort to make our military men
and women smile.
This project will not be a one-
time project, we will continue to
do this as long as there are sol-
diers fighting wars in foreign
lands and we need your help. If
you have items or cards to donate
or would like a list of some other
items needed, please call and
leave a message for Brandi at
(863) 983-9748 or Linda at (863)
902-3502. Please join us in show-
ing our troops that we care.
Sincerely:
Linda Meier
President Ladies Auxiliary

Pet Corner


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Is it really
that bad to feed your dog people
food? I give my dog, Rex, scraps
nearly every day, and he does not
have any digestive or weight prob-
lems. Why do vets in general say it
is so bad to do? Jason in Clewis-
ton.
A: Well that's a great question
Jason! Once upon a time, in a land
not too far away there was no such
thing as people food or dog food
there was just "food"!
I guess I'm trying to make the
point that only a few decades ago,
most families fed the family dog
leftovers from the dinner table. So
why all the big to do about dog
food vs. people food?
In recent years there has been
much research in animal nutrition,
and veterinary medicine has taken
on a whole new outlook for the
family pet's care. As human nutri-
tion became more of an important
factor, so did domestic animal
nutrition. Although it is perfectly
ok, and in my opinion even a better
choice to home cook for your pet,
most veterinarians will recom-
mend a good quality pet feed
. instead. Dogs, cats, rabbits, ham-
sters...etc. do have their own per-
sonal nutritional requirements,
and can become ill if certain vita-
mins, and nutrients are not present
in their feedings.
A perfect example is cats need-
ing to have a certain amount of a
protein called taurine in their diet. If
they lack it, it may cause heart and
eye problems. Another example is
the guinea pig needing vitamin C in
their diets, or they will develop
scurvy. Scurvy is a disease affecting
the teeth and musculo-skelletal
systems seen only in the guinea pig
and primates.
So, in a nutshell it is not bad to
feed your dog leftovers from the
table as long as it is a healthy
choice of leftover, with proper
nutritional requirements for your


pet's needs. Another point to con-
sider is, where are the products for
pre-packaged pet food coming
from?
Manytimes all the bi-products
that are not suitable for human
consumption are filtered into the
pet food industry as opposed to
throwing it
away. It's about
economics too!
Unless yofir pet
has a certain
medical reason
to have a spe-
cial diet, it is .
quite good to
give them a
veggie and pro-
tein home-cooked meal e.g, chick-
en and broccoli or carrots with a
multivitamin and a bit of kibble to
help promote healthy teeth and
gums.
Well Jason, I bet you didn't
expect such a long answer! I think
it is important to clarify the truth
about "pet food". I also feel a
responsibility to help clarify that
feeding cooked meals for your dog
will not hurt them when done cor-
rectly. Take care, Doc Savvy.
Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Hello my
name is Mark, and I'm new to the
South Florida area. There seems to
be so many different things for my
black lab "Nascar" to get into here.
Is there a poison control phone
number for pets? Just curious,
thought it would be a good idea to
have on hand. Thanks Doc, and by
the way nice photo hint, hint.
A: Well hello Mark, and thank
you! The number is (888) 426-
4435. Also check out the Web site
through the ASPCA. Best wishes,
Doc Savvy.

ronment where I don't know
anybody, it's probably the other
way around.
Q: What scares you?
A: What scares me, well, I
guess forgetting to file an indi-
vidual or a tax return onh time.'n
other words messing updoing
what I'm supposed to be doing.
Q: Why does that scare you?
A: Because, there's ramifica-
tions to an individual when a tax
return is filed late or incorrect,
there will be penalties and inter-
est that will be charged.
Q: What is your favorite
song?
A: What's my favorite song -
I really don't have a favorite
song. I like all music in general. I
enjoy listening to all kinds of
music.
Q: Have you ever been in a
situation were you haven't been
able to help a client resolve a tax
issue?
A: No, I don't think so, but


typically we file the tax return
first and see what the problem is
and then try to resolve the prob-
lem the best we can. Sometimes
it works out easy sometimes not
so easy, depending on the prob-
'lAem, and sometimes the solution
h.prfaby in ither.ejnind wasn't
the best, but'it was the best we
were able to do.
Q: What irks you?
A: When people don't do
what they say they are going to
do. When they're late, or when
they don't show up at all, that's
what irks me more than any-
thing.
Q: What is the memory you
hold dear to you?
A: I have so many, but they all
revolve around my wife Mimi,
my son Jay, and my daughter
Marcy. Those three people are
very special to me.

Police to crack down on DUI enforcement Arrest Reports


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
PAHOKEE Even before the
statewide campaign "You Drink
and Drive. You Lose" begins, the
officers at the Pahokee Police
Department are getting ready to
target unlawful drivers.
Two weeks into this month
alone, the officers had logged
1,000 traffic citations in anticipa-
tion of the busy Labor Day holiday
period.
According to Acting Police
Chief Calipto Gonzalez, the goal is
to prevent yet another senseless
death from occurring. With the
city of Pahokee joining the cam-
paign, the police department staff
hopes to prevent another tragedy
through a strong enforcement of
driving under the influence laws.
Starting Aug. 19, the police
department will be hot on the trail
of drunk drivers who ignore
established laws and choose to
drive a vehicle rather than get a


ride home. The chances of getting
home without being caught driv-
ing drunk, Chief Gonzalez said,
will be a much harder proposition
through the campaign period,
which ends Sept. 5.
"We're going to be hitting any-
body who breaks the law," he
said.
When drivers forego good
sense, Chief Gonzalez said, the
results can sometimes be deadly.
Chief Gonzalez takes heed of
the sobering statistics that plague
the country as motivation for tar-
geting drunk drivers. The statistics
show that every 32 minutes,
someone in the United States dies
in an alcohol- or drug-related
crash, and every two minutes
someone is injured in an
impaired driving crash.
Chief Gonzalez is no stranger
J6 the experience, having seen the
scene unravel time and again: A
drunk driver losing control of his
vehicle and crashing into an


unsuspecting driver or pedestrian.
"It's always the innocent per-
son crossing the street who dies,
never the driver of the vehicle," he
said.
If all goes well, that will not be
the case this year, said Chief Gon-
zalez.
Regarding arresting drivers
under the influence, Chief Gonza-
lez said, "We're hoping we won't
have to arrest anyone."
If the increased enforcement
of the issuance of tickets serves as
an proper warning, then residents
and drivers who roake use of
Pahokee's roads will think twice
.before getting into a vehicle drunk
in August.
Though the program urges
officers to make arrests as an indi-
cator of its success, Chief Gonza-
lez prefers that everyone stays
safe during the upcoming holi-
days. "We're hoping we'll save
somebody's life," said Chief Gon-
zalez.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
THE LAKEPORT WATER ASSOCIATION WATER TREATMENT
SYSTEM HAS A LEVEL OF TOTAL TRIHALOMETHANES WHICH EXCEEDS STANDARDS
SITUATION
The Department of Environmental Protection requires disinfection of drinking water to inac-
tivate possible pathogens, because the health benefits of disinfection far outweigh its risks.
However, when used in the treatment of drinking water, some disinfectants combine with
organic and inorganic matter present in the water to form chemicals called disinfection
byproducts (DBP's). A number of DBP's such as Total Trihalomethanes (TTHM's) and
Haloacetic Acids (HAA5's) may be a health concern at certain levels of exposure.
The Department has reveiwed the laboratory analysis results for the fourth consecutive quar-
terly set of samples for TTHM's collected on May 9, 2005, as well as the first, second, and
third quarterly sets of TTHM sample results from the Lakeport Water Association public
drinking water system. The laboratory analysis results for the TTHM sample collect on
August 9, 2004, November 30, 2004, March 1, 2005 and May 9, 2005 now indicate a run-
ning annual average TTHM concentration of 105.25 micorgrams per liter (ug/L). Therefore,
the Department has determined that this water system has generated a Maximum
Contaminant Level (MCL) violation for TTHM's, since Table 3 of Rule 62-550, Florida
Administrative Code (FA.C.), identifies the MCL for TTHM's as 80 ug/L.
HEALTH EFFECTS
Some people who drink water containing Trihalomethanes in excess of the Maximum
Contaminant Level (MCL) over many years may experience problems with their liver, kid-
neys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
WHAT SHOULD CUSTOMERS DO?
This is not an immediate risk, however, until the problem is correct, any customers who are
concerned about their exposure to TTHM's may wish to use alternative sources of water for
ingestion, such as commercial bottled water, or water treated by an appropriate home Water
treatment device. Appropriate home water treatment devises are those certified by the
National Sanitation Foundation' (NSF) for reducing TTHM's in drinking water.
WHAT IS BEING DONE?
The problem will be corrected when the Seminole Tribe builds their new water treatment
plant on the Brighton Reservation. Construction is to begin no later than September, 2005,
with construction schedule indicating completion in March of 2007.

Herbert Hoover Dike restoration being planned


By MaryAnn Morris
After years of planning, the
Army Corps of Engineers has
finally been successful in getting
the Herbert Hoover Dike restora-
tion project off the ground. On
June 20, 2005, the Corps official-
ly solicited bids for the first
phase of this critical work. The
Bids are due Aug. 19.
"We estimate about one
week for evaluation, a contract
to be awarded around Sept. 11,
2005 and the chosen contractor
to be able to begin in October,"
said Contract Specialist Pam
Owens with the Army corps of
Engineers in Jacksonville, Flori-
da.


The. dike is a critical part of O
South Florida's economy. In r
1928 a hurricane roared up from : ,
the Caribbean and destroyed
many of the towns along the
lake and thousands of people
died. To prevent this from hap- e ""
opening again, the federal govern-
ment built the Herbert Hoover Lake Okeechobee has risen r.

and the sugar industry adds $7 --

to Florida's economy. The bass
fishing industry adds another "
$2.2 billion each year to Florida's
gross domestic product. More
than 40,000 people make their
lives in the towns that ripg the
lake, protected by the Hoover
Dike.

repair of the dike out for bids.
Reach One, the area about
from Port Myacca to South Bay
had problems in. 1995-96 when
the water level in the lake
reached 17.5 feet. Lake water
came bubbling up outside the
dike, pushed out by the tremen-
dous weight of high water.
Emergency repairs were made at
that time.
"The condition of the dike
and the development of the sur-
rounding land were the deter-
mining factors in deciding in
which area to begin," said Steve
Duba, P.E. Chief of the Engineer-
ing Division of USACE.
"Reach One" is shown on the
location map. All construction
will be located within the "foot-
print" of the existing dike, so that
no homes or other buildings
along the dike will be affected.
A majot consideration for the
Corps are the homes and build-
ings within reach of the Dike,
including the adjacent towns of
Canal Point, Pahokee, Belle
Glade, South Bay and Lake Har-
bor. After studying: four different
alternatives, the best solution
was finally determined.
The Army Corps of Engineers
will contract to 'construct a wall,
called a "cut-off wall," part way
up' the dike, approximately
where the FP&L power poles are
now on the outside slope of the
dike. As part of the construction,
FP&L will move their poles.
This cut-off wall will block
any water seeping through the
dike and force it to go deeper
where the dike is thicker. Then a
trench filled with porous materi-
al located in the same general
area, will carry off any remaining
seepage so the dike will not be
jeopardized. The top of the dike
is at elevation 34.0 feet above sea
level. This construction will be at
the elevation of 26 feet.
"This construction will actu-
ally make the dike safe at a high-
er water level that it was original-
ly designed for," said Luis Ruez,
P.E. Chief of the Geotechnical
Branch of USACE.
"The Herbert Hoover Dike is
:not maintained just as a levee, it
is actually maintained to the
same safety standards as any
dam to 'core dam safety stan-
dards,'" said Jacob Davis, project
engineer. "This is a much higher
standard of maintenance than
*for a levee, which is how the
dike is actually classified." The
development around, the lake
and the nature of the lake and
Florida's weather make safety
more'important. Currently, the
Corps is checking areas of the
dike that have historically had
problems at least twice a week,
because the water levels in the
lake have been unusually high.
"We want to be able to repair
any problem areas when they are
still small," said Mr. Ruez, "Right
now the area around Lake Har-
bor is one of those areas. Prob-
lem areas will be checked daily
at 17.5, just to be careful."

Finding the right words at a sad moment; a celebration


The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
During my past 39 years of
ministry, I've conducted my share
of funerals. Most times they are
sad occasions, giving people
hope at a time of a serious loss.
They serve as reminders of our
inheritance as members of the
household of the faithful and they
give us a meaningful way of
expressing the grief that is normal
- expected when someone
departs this life.
There have been times when
the burial is punctuated by some-
thing unexpected. I recall one
family that contracted me to con-
duct a service for a loved one, a
brother living with two sisters in a
modest home. They were immi-
grants that knew the horrors of
the Second World War and then
usurpations of powers by the
Communists.
They fled to North America


and made a new life. I visited with
the sisters and expressed my con-
dolences, and offered the services
of the Church. They sat passively
and without emotion. As I went
over the service, I explained that I
hope that it would be a personal
service remembering parts of
the life of their lost brother.
I asked what he did and
received a perfunctory answer. I
asked about hobbies -- they did-
n't reply. I asked what he did in his
spare time did he like hunting
or fishing, for example? No reply
came forth. I asked about any
activity he might have had and
received a one-word answer:
"Boozing." That wasn't much to
go on! Surely there was some-
thing more to his life than "booz-
ing'" "Anything else," I asked?
The one-word answer came
again: "Boozing." I decided that
there must have been more to this
human being than revealed by his
family. What does one say at
funerals anyway?


My answer has always been
that we commemorate a human
life, whose earthly ministry was
done, and who was called home
by a loving God. Very few have
passed through this life without
major struggles, without difficul-
ties, without falling short of their
own ideals or those of others.
I don't believe in long procla-
mations about a saintly life that
always comes after the departure
from this life, and sometimes
long, long afterward. I believed
that life to be celebrated is one
who shared with ,others the hard-
ship and difficulties that come
with every life.
Once and awhile I've celebrat-
ed the life of someone who has
overcome a great difficulty or
problem, or who has made a spe-
cial contribution to others and it is
worth remembering as we cele-
brate a life lived.
The greatest life is not the one
with little or no difficulties, but the
one that has faced them head-on


and overcame them.
The Lord said, "Those who are
well have no need of a physician,
but those who are sick
(Matthew9:12ff) and tells His fol-
lowers 'Go and learn what this
means.'" He goes on to tell them,
"For I came not to call the right-
eous but sinners." The call from
God is not for the perfect I sus-
pect they would already be called
into Heaven, but these who are
growing toward perfection.
I could only imagine what it
might have meant to have one's
country taken hostage by an
oppressive tyrant, to lose every-
thing one had, to live in continual
fear, to flee one's homeland, to
build a new life and support his
remaining family. Suffering and
hardship must have been beyond
the imagination of most of us.
My thoughts were that "here
was a man who lived, and who
died, knowing hardships and
joys; suffering and renewal; love
of family and loving them in


Annual Teen Sweep held for volunteers


W UW,"d. WW,- f
Counselors and counselors in training line up for the mad
dash at the annual Teen Sweep where the participants had a
select amount of time to run the aisles in search of the mosi
expensive groceries.


Submitted to Independent Newspapers
Kristi McCArthy was the top shopper, hauling in close to
$200 in groceries in the allotted time given at the annual
Teen Sweep. McCarthy earned herself one minute in the
school supply aisle where she won $87 worth of merchan-
dise for the coming school year.


The Clewiston Recreation
Department held its Annual Teen
Sweep for the Summer Camp
Program Teen Volunteers. These
volunteers are called Counselors
In Training (CIT's). Their job, is to
assist the counselors with their
daily duties and activities. This
I program was designed to give the
a teens experience on job responsi-
t abilities, they have to fill out an
application, attend orientation,
attend a babysitting course, and
Turn in time sheets for daily hours.
This year, 23 teens participated in
the Counselor In Training Pro-
gram.
Each Teen Volunteer receives a
pool pass, T-shirt, Volunteer
Award, and $25 gift certificate.
This year's Teen Sweep took
place Thursday, July 14, at 7 a.m.
J.D. Limousines picked up the
volunteers from the Youth Center
and supplied transportation for
the Volunteers to and from the
center, which the teens very
much enjoyed. Ten volunteers
participated in the sweep along
with counselors. They could not
be chosen by their qualifications
because all of them were excel-
lent. The runners were deter-
mined by finding 10 helium bal-
loons. Whoever found the
balloon would participate in the
,sweep, each balloon was num-
bered, whichever number was
picked by the volunteer deter-
mined their place in line for the
sweep. '

The winner of the Teen Sweep
with a total of groceries in the
amount of $196.04 was Kristi
McCarthy with Counselor/James
Miracle.
For this, Kristi McCarthy won
(one) minute in the school supply
aisle in which he collected $87
worth of merchandise that he got
to keep.
The Clewiston Recreation
Department would like to thank
the sponsors for their help, and
J.P. Morgan Limousines for trans-
portation to and from the' Teen
Sweep.
C.I.T.
The purpose and goals of the
C.I.T. program is to help our teens
develop leadership skills that
young people can use throughout
their lives to help others and to
help themselves identify and
achieve goals. In addition our
C.I.T. program helps young peo-
ple to learn how to effectively lead
children.
This year's volunteers have
contributed approximately 2,800
hours to the Clewiston Recreation
Department Summer program.

return in short; a human being
like the rest of us."
It was precisely for this kind of
human being that the Lord came
and lived among us and died.


That was a message worth shar-
ing and that I shared with the few
that came to remember this child
of God who had been called
home. It was enough.

Dike inspected for leaks; concerns rise as lake levels rise


By D. Hamilton
Okeechobee News
Concerns rise with lake levels
Record rainfall since June 1
has some officials discussing
potential problems with the Her-
bert Hoover Dike, which sur-
rounds Lake Okeechobee.
The water level in Lake Okee-
chobee has risen more than 1.5
feet in the past 30 days. According
to a report from the Army Corp of
Engineers (COE) meeting
* on Friday, July 9 in Jacksonville,
the 14 inches of rain during the
a month of June was well above
average.
Barry Vorse, Director of Com-
munications with the COE in
Jacksonville, provided informa-
tion from the meeting, which
answers the question of why
there is so much water in the
basins and in other areas, which
normally handle runoff.
Due to regional rainfall, inflow
from the Kissimmee basin,
Fisheating Creek, Lake Istokpoga,
Taylor Creek and Nubbins Slough
has been very high, he explained.
The groundwater system wide is
: saturated due to a wetter than
i normal month' of June and also
the rainfall from tropical storms
and hurricanes including, Arlene,
Cindy and Dennis. The Upper
i. Kissimmee basin area received
twice the normal June rainfall and
the Lower Kissimmee and Lake
S Okeechobee area received about
1.5 times the normal amount for
the month of June.
: With all of the rain and not
much in the way of sunny days,
) the water level in Lake Okee-
: chobee now stands at over 16.5
J feet. That amount is nearly four
; feet higher than it was this time
: last year and almost two feet high-
er than it was even after getting hit
With last year's record four hurri-
canes.
It is important to gain an accu-
: rate measurement of lake water
levels which are wind driven and
: they differ in measurement by as
much as three inches at any given
; point. When the lake levels are


Belle Gla
Vernon (Dex)
Sand Jeanette Dexter
As told to MaryAnn Morris
By 1936 the Herbert Hoover
: Dike was completed and Belle
Glade changed forever. For the
first time, there was no way for
people to go right from town to
the lake. But with the news of the
hurricane, news of the rich soil
and long growing season in the
I glades brought many more farm-
ers.
f Farmers worked small plots
and harvested by hand close in to
town. But at the same time, with-
out the threat of storms flooding
crops, farming got bigger. Land
further out from town dried
enough to plant. Workers came to
plant and harvest the green beans
*,that Belle Glade, Pahokee and
South Bay became known for all
over the country. Green beans
were picked, packed and shipped
from the towns along the lake.
Farmers driven from the Mid-
west by drought and the Great
Depression came to hire on at the
farms for wages as a last resort or
buy some land of their own.
After the Civil War, large num-
bers of former slaves had settled
in and around the Mohawk Valley
;in New York State. The area
allowed for less prejudice and
better wages than the South
could offer. Many people worked
,on the local farms picking sum-
mer vegetables and fruit and fall
apples.
SWith the growth of large farm-
S ing in Belle Glade, many of these
people came down in the winter
to work the farms there to
return to New York in the sum-
mer. Early on, large rooming
houses built of wood with tarpa-
per roofs served as shelter, but fire
was a problem. Eventually, they
stayed and built homes, shops
and churches and a real commu-
nity.
The Dexters came to Belle
Glade in 1948 to bring Glades Gas
Company to Belle Glade about
the same time as the McCarthys
took the company to Clewiston.
SMr. Dexter remembers:
"When I came here it was a

Engineers are doing their best to keep water levels in the
lake at a normal level, but Mother Nature is not cooperating
with manmade schedules.


measured from each of four inte-
rior stations, those measurements
are combined and averaged to
come up with a total amount.
What steps are taken to main-
tain the Herbert Hoover Dike?
The current lake level meas-
urement is significant at this time
because at 16.5 feet, the Army
Corp of Engineers (COE) begins
an intensive monitoring program
on a weekly basis. The monitor-
ing is to ensure the integrity of the
143 miles of the Herbert Hoover
Dike, which surrounds the lake
and ties into high ground in the
area of Fisheating Creek.
Special attention is given to
flood control and safety of the
dike structure during times when
water levels are high. The dike is
between 100 to 300 feet thick and
was constructed from local geo-
logical materials (silt, clay, peat,
sand, shell and gravel). According
to COE information, all earthen
structures leak and must be moni-
tored on a regular basis. The
Corps' South Florida Operations
Office regularly maintains and
inspects the dike. The frequency
of inspections increases as lake.


waters rise. The data collected
during the inspections are evalu-
ated against past performance of
the dike and monitoring is adjust-
ed as needed. The COE inspects
areas as far as a mile away from
the dike checking for "wet spots"
and "boils" or bubbles of water
coming up from the ground
which indicates headwater in the
lake are far above land. Water tun-
nels under the dike and comes up
and "puddles," possibly endan-
gering the dikes structural integri-
ty.
The dike was inspected after
Hurricanes Charlie, Frances and
Jeanne. After Hurricane Jeanne,
COE inspectors found that the
wind and waves from Frances did
result in some sand and rock
movement on the south shore of
the lake, near Pahokee. Inspec-
tors also found some areas of ero-
sion around culverts and also
near the Port Mayaca lock. This
means that some sand, soil and
rock were washed away where a
culvert and the soil of the dike
come together.
It has been eight months since
the occurrence of Hurricane


Jeanne, and the problem has
been assessed, but not yet
repaired.
If any seepage areas from the
dike are identified during inspec-
tion, they will be marked and
monitored. If the seepage shows
any movement of material they
would be monitored daily.
Currently the dike is inspected
weekly. If lake levels increase to
17.5 feet, the inspections will
increase to a daily monitoring
schedule. These daily inspections
would be to identify any prob-
lems as quickly as possible. If
problems are detected early on,
repair measures can be taken in
an effort to prevent any additional
problems.
Where does the water go?
If the rainfall continues to be
above normal and the lake levels
continue to rise, then water man-
agers may have to deviate from
the Water.Supply/Environmental
(WSE) regulation schedule,
which is the schedule which
guides water managers on the
amount to release in accordance
to what zones the lake water lev-
els are in. Water managers are
currently following a normal pro-
gression of regulating the lake lev-
els in accordance with the WSE
schedule.
, The COE meets regularly with
the SFWMD to evaluate the
progress of the discharges. Sys-
tem-wide water levels are evaluat-
ed on a daily basis and decisions
are made accordingly.
In order to lower the lake lev-
els, water is currently being
released into the Caloosahatchee
and the St. Lucie Rivers. Missie
Barletto of the SFWMD stated,
"The water is released at a rate of
3,092 cubic feet per second (cfs)
which is equivalent to 1.5 swim-
ming pools or 15,000 gallons per
second from all outflow areas
combined."
Ms. Barletto said, "On any
given .summer day with a little
wind and plenty of sunshine, the
lake levels will be evaporated at a
rate of nearly one inch per day
and we cannot release the water


levels at that rate. The rains this
year coupled with not as many
sunny days does not provide for
the evaporation levels to reduce
the lake water at a fast enough
rate. Unfortunately, the inflow of
water to the lake far exceeds the
outflow at a rate of 11,112 cfs,
which is equivalent to nine swim-
ming pools having 15,000 gallons
each. We will need to continue to
have scheduled releases of the
lake water."
According to Barry Vorse,
"The Corps has been making reg-
ulatory releases from the lake


almost continuously since Sep-
tember 2004. The releases were
made through most of the dry
season in an effort to prepare the
lake for this season's possible hur-
ricanes."
Mr. Vorse continued by saying,
"The releases will be evaluated on
a daily basis and each week the
strategy for the continued releas-
es will be reviewed and revised as
necessary. Discharges from the
lake are necessary to stay ahead
of the potential for additional rain-
fall and to prevent future prob-
lems."

Special to Independent Newspapers/Florida Archives
In 1947 and later, the harvesting of green beans was done by
hand in the towns around the Lake. Machines to harvest
crops had not been invented yet.


divided town. The white and the
African American. It had been like
that through the 1930s and 40s
until after World War II. When
there were small farmers farming
the land there were fertilizer peo-
ple, inspectors, produce buyers,
all associated with the vegetable
farming. With the coming of the
University of Florida Agricultural
Experiment Stations employees,
we used to say there were more
PhD's in Belle Glade than- any-
where. Other crops were grown:
Celery, lettuce, radishes.
"After the war, bean produc-
tion fell off. The green beans we
grew in Belle Glade wouldn't cold
pack. There was too much water
in the beans that grew here. A lot
of the farms were turned to pas-
ture and cattle became a big busi-
ness here. There were still farm-
ers in town but cattle ranching
out on the fringes until the late
1960s.
"The Ag Extension people, sci-
entists, worked to develop vari-
eties of vegetables that could be
cold-packed or shipped without
spoiling. Take sweet corn, for
instance.
"The soil and climate here
grow excellent sweet corn, but
corn looses its sugar soon after
picking. Because we grow miles


of corn, it had to ripen all at the
same time so it could all be
picked at the same time and keep
its sugar for a week to 10. days.
One of the scientists at the Agri-
cultural Experimental Station
here in Belle Glade, Emil Wolfe,
worked 25 years with varieties of
corn to develop the hybrid that
everyone in the United States can
now buy at their local grocery
store."
Mrs. Dexter (Jeanette) remem-
bers seeing a field of radishes: "As
far. as I :could see, I saw radishes
growing. I saw entire trucks full of
nothing but radishes! They would
be washed and sorted in the pack-
inghouse here in Belle Glade.
Some of them would be shipped
in 40-pound bags by rail to New
York. From New York they would
be shipped to Holland where they
would be repacked and shipped
all over Europe."
"The Cuban Revolution
changed things again. The Cuban
farmers forced out by Castro had
the technology to grow sugar suc-
cessfully. I remember that the Fan-
juls lived in Pahokee at one time,"
Mr. Dexter continued.
The vegetable buyers,
inspectors and so forth, just went
away. From about 1954 until 1960
the largest cattle market in state


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history


was in Belle Glade, right across
from the courthouse. Then the
cattle disappeared, too as more
and more land was turned into
more profitable sugar crops.
Many of the original pioneering
families moved away. But they
kept their ownership of the land
and leased it to the sugar compa-
nies. They needed a different kind'
of farm worker to plant and har-
vest the sugar cane. When
mechanical cutters replaced the
human cane cutters in the fields.
When the cane workers left Belle
Glade many of the people who
were in service businesses left,
too."
Time has brought so many
changes to the Everglades. Belle
Glade and its sister towns, Paho-
kee, Canal Point and South Bay
change with the times. Agricul-
ture is stable, progress continues
and people value their history.
"Potluck in the Muck" the play
based on the stories of over 50
residents, was produced by and
starred many, many residents of
Belle Glade who were eager to tell
some of their history. It was a
smash hit every time it played.
"Potluck in the Muck, a pro-
duction held at the old Fantastic
Produce packinghouse. in Belle
Glade brought rave reviews and
standing room only crowds this
past weekend," said the review in
the Pahokee Sun, Thursday, May
28, 1998. Hopefully it will play
again.

minds of our peers."
Mr. Hosick thanked DCF and
the United Way for their active
participation in HGMHC cultural
diversity efforts with their fund-
ing.
"Both DCF and United Way
approved our proposals and
have followed our progress
closely." Mr. Hosick also gave
credit to all HGMHC staff for
making such an award even pos-
sible. "Mostly our staff have
made the necessary effort to
address the cultural barriers that
exist in every mental health inter-
action between a staff member
and person seeking services,
such as language, transportation,
religious beliefs, legal issues,


etc., that may impede the effec-
tive delivery of health and social
services to minorities. Everyone
from receptionist to counselor to
physician is involved in this pro-
gram.
"While it's difficult for any
agency to adequately address the
needs of a culturally diverse clien-
tele, it is especially difficult for a
small agency like ours. It is very
satisfying that FADAA has recog-
nized our staff's efforts," he said.
Based on the 2000 federal cen-
sus information, the resident His-
panic/Latino portion of Hendry
County's total population was 39
percent and growing, ranking
Hendry County first in the five-
county service area designed by
the Florida Department of Chil-
dren and Families' District 8
which also includes Lee, Collier,
Charlotte and Glades. Counties.
Of the four remaining counties,
Collier County (primarily the
Immokalee area) ranks second
and Glades County ranks third

ties.

The laboratory is directed by a

The CAP Laboratory Accredi-
tation Program, begun in the early
1960's, is recognized by the feder-
al government as being equal to,
and perhaps even more stringent,


than the government's own
inspection program.
During the CAP accreditation
process, inspectors examined the
,laboratory's records and quality,
control of procedures for the pre-
ceding two years. CAP inspectors
also examined the entire staff's
qualifications, the laboratory's
equipment, facilities, safety pro-
gram and record, as well as the
overall management of the labo-
ratory. This stringent inspection

USDA Farm Service Agency surveys

damage from Hurricane Dennis


GAINESVILLE Help is avail-
able for farmers who suffered
agricultural losses as a result of
Hurricane Dennis, the first major
hurricane of the season, which
struck the western panhandle on
July 10, said Florida's Farm Ser-
vice Agency State Executive
Director Kevin Kelley.
Florida's State Emergency
Board member agencies met July
13 in Gainesville to review Prelim-
inary damages reported by USDA
agencies in the affected areas.
Escambia and Santa Rosa coun-
ties were declared
Presidential Major Disaster
Declaration Areas on July 10,
making them eligible for federal
emergency programs. Okaloosa,
a contiguous county, is also eligi-
ble for assistance, as well as Bald-.
win County, a contiguous Alaba-
ma county.
"FSA is assessing crop dam-
ages, and these preliminary
reports will be submitted to our
national office for review," said
Kelley who is also chairman of
the USDA State Emergency Board
and Food and Agriculture Com-
mittee.
"It is still too early to predict if
Congress will authorize a special
program with regard to providing
assistance to agricultural produc-
ers as a result Of Hurricane Den-
nis, but we do,have emergency
assistance programs in place to
help producers."
An FSA Jump Team, which
deployed July 9, completed an
initial assessment of affected
counties to ensure the safety of
employees. The team reported
the farming area of Santa Rosa
County took a major hit with
barns and some homes damaged
or destroyed and surrounding


counties were also affected.
Santa Rosa County's FSA
office remains closed and is
expected to reopen within the
next two weeks. Producers serv-
iced by that office should contact
the Florida FSA State Office at
(352) 379-4500. Escambia Coun-
ty's FSA office reopened July 14,
after a temporary power failure
caused by the hurricane. .
"FSA employees are visiting
farms, meeting with producers
and teaming up with local offi-,
cials to ensure that we address
the needs of the agricultural com-
munity," said Kelley. "We are
doing everything we can to help
farmers who were affected by
hurricane Dennis while still work-
ing with farmers who were affect-
ed by last year's devastating hurri-
canes."
The U.S. Department of Agri-
culture's Farm Service Agency
(FSA) has the following programs
available to assist producers suf-
fering losses caused by a natural
disaster:
Disaster Debt Set-Aside Pro-
gram-FSA borrowers located in
designated disaster areas or con-
tiguous counties, who are unable
to make their scheduled pay-
ments on any debt, may be
authorized to have certain set
asides.
Emergency Conservation
Program (ECP)-ECP offers pay-
ments for rehabilitation of farm-
land damaged by natural disas-
ters, including debris removal and
repair of fencing for eligible live-
stock, and. emergency loans to
help qualified farmers cover crop,
machinery and structural losses.
Emergency Loans (EM) --
FSA's low-interest emergency
loans help producers recover


from production and physical
losses due to drought, flooding,
other natural disasters, or quaran-
tine.
Noninsured Crop Disaster
Assistance Program (NAP)-FSA
provides financial assistance to
producers ,of certain non-insur-
able crops when low yields, loss
of inventory, or prevented plant-
ing occurs as a result of a natural
disaster.
Last year's four devastating
hurricanes resulted in three USDA
programs to provide special dis-
aster relief to producers who suf-
fered from crop damage and tree.
losses. To date, FSA has issued
approximately $393.5 million
through the 2004 Florida Hurri-
cane Disaster Assistance Pro-
grams.
Payments for this assistance
were authorized under Section 32
of the Agricultural Adjustment Act
of Aug. 24, 1935, which allows
the Secretary of Agriculture, to
implement programs to help
restore producers' purchasing
power; .
S"'Farmers need our immediate
assistance, and we want to be
sure they are informed ot the
types of emergency benefits avail-
able and how to apply for our
programs," said Kelley. "I encour-
age producers to contact our
local FSA office or USDA Service
Center for questions regarding
available disaster assistance pro-
grams."
There are 37 FSA county offices
throughout Florida. If unable to
reach an FSA county office, pro-
ducers should call the FSA.State'
Office at (352) 379-4500. Addition-
al disaster assistance information
is available online at: httpV/disas-
ter.fsa.usda.gov/fsa.asp.


Grapes are the pick of the season


To promote the nutritional ben-
efits of fresh produce, Weight
Watchers continues Pick of the Sea-
son, a public health initiative spot-
lighting seasonal fruit and vegeta-
bles. This quarter, the recipes
feature grapes, a highly portable
produce selection that tastes great
and provides nutritional value at
any time of the day.
Grapes are loaded with phy-
tonutrients biologically active
substances that come from plants
and have beneficial effects on
-health, such as resveratrol,
quercetin, anthocyanin and cate-
chin. Research studies have shown.
that resveratrol, found. primarily in
the skin of grapes, has antioxidant
properties and may help increase
HDL (good) cholesterol and
reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol.
Resveratrol is also.believed to have
other heart-healthy benefits that
may help reduce the risk of this dis-
ease, as well as provide anti-inflam-
matory benefits.
Additionally, grapes are a good
source of potassium and vitamin C,
while being naturally low in fat and
sodium. Not only are they good for
you, but they're delicious, whether
you eat them as a snack or use


them in a recipe.
That's one reason grapes were
chosen as Weight Watchers(r) Pick
of the Season this quarter.
This bite-sized treat can form
the basis of delicious desserts, side
dishes and even main 'courses.
Below are three flavorful grape
recipes to share with your readers:
Grape Chicken Caesar Wrap,
Chilled Orzo with Grapes and Nuts,
and for dessert, Grape-Orange
Thick Shake.

Disaster preparedness for families with children


TALLAHASSEE Children's
fears can stem from their imagi-
nations, and adults should take
their feelings seriously. Words and
actions can provide reassurance
to a child who feels afraid.
When talking to your child, be
sure to present a realistic picture
that is both honest and manage-
able. Be aware that after a disas-
ter, children most fear that:
*They will be separated from
family, and they will be left alone.
*The event will happen again.
*Someone will be injured or
killed.
DOH recommends assem-
bling a kit for your child, includ-
ing:.
*A few favorite books, crayons


and paper.
*Puzzles, a board game, deck
of cards.
*Two favorite small toys, such
as a doll or action figure, a stuffed
animal.
*Favorite blanket, pillow.
ePictures of family and pets.
*Other special items that will
comfort children.
Children's immunizations
should be up-to date to protect
from vaccine-preventable dis-
eases, including an unexpected
outbreak during a disaster.
*Keep a copy of your chil-
dren's complete immunization
histories in your disaster kit
attached to the family emergency
information.


*All family members should
also record the date of their last
tetanus-diphtheria shot in this
record as well.
ADVICE ON COMMUNICAT-
ING WITH CHILDREN ABOUT
DISASTERS
In response to the tragic events
of September 11, 2001, the Ameri-
can Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)
offered some advice on commu-
nicating with children/adoles-
cents during times of crisis.
It is important to communi-
cate to children that the family cir-
cle is strong. Children need to be
assured by their parents that the
family is safe. Adolescents, in par-
ticular, can be hard hit by this type
of disaster. Parents should watch


Making a family plan for disasters and


TALLAHASSEE In the event
of a hurricane, the Florida Depart-
ment of Health (DOH) recom-
mends families to establish a disas-
ter or emergency plan.
EVALUATE
Identify potential threats in
your community, such as the loca-
tion of flood prone areas, power
plants and hazardous chemicals.
e Discuss how natural and
man-made threats could affect
your family.
Evaluate your property's vul-
nerability to hazards, such as storm
surge, flooding and wildfires.
Check your insurance cover-
age.
PREPARE
Identify the safest areas of
your home for each threat. In many


circumstances, the safest area may
not be your home but elsewhere in
your community. During times of
evacuation, you will be given
instructions on evacuation routes.
Specify escape routes from
your home and places to meet
(rally points), such as a neighbor's
home, a school or a public loca-
tion.
Make a plan for evacuating
the area if required.
Designate an out-of-area con-
tact-friend or family member-so
that each of your immediate family
members has the same single
point of contact. Plan to have at
least two means of communica-
tion, (e.g., e-mail, phone and cell
phone).
Make a plan for your pets


should you need to evacuate. Most
shelters will accept service ani-
mals.
Have your family emergency
information accessible, including
important family documents such
as prescriptions and insurance
information.
Post emergency telephone
numbers by your phones and
make sure your children know
how and when to call 911. Make
sure any cell phones are fully
charged.
Assemble and maintain a dis-
aster supply kit. A battery-powered
weather radio equipped with a
special alarm tone feature is a vital
tool.
During an emergency, National
Weather Service forecasters will


for signs such as sleep distur-
bances, fatigue, lack of pleasure
in activities previously enjoyed
and illicit substance abuse.
Overexposure to the media
can be traumatizing. It is best not
to let children or adolescents
repeatedly view footage of trau-
matic events. Children and ado-
lescents should not view these
events alone. Adults need to help
children understand the emer-
gency or disaster. Discussion is
critical. More information is avail-
able at www.aap.org.
For further information, please
contact your local county health
department, or visit
www.doh.state.fl.us or
www.FloridaDisaster.org.

emergencies
interrupt routine weather radio
programming and send out the
special tone that activates weather
radios in the listening area.
MONITOR & ACT
When a disaster occurs, listen
to news sources for information
and instructions.
Evacuate or seek medical
attention quickly if instructed by
authorities. If you cannot obtain
information, determine as best you
can if you are in a danger area.
Whether you stay or evacu-
ate, don't panic. Follow your family
plan.
For further information, please

Genators can be deadly; know which one to choose


With the onset of the 2005 Hur-
ricane season, the sale of genera-
tors has been reaching record num-
bers and that record creates more
dangers of fatal accidents.
When the power goes off, many
consumers turn to emergency gen-
erators to power refrigerators,
freezers, lights, fans and other appli-
ances. If you use a generator,
extreme caution is required. While
convenient and. useful, generators
C can create hazards for homeown-
ers and utility workers. Always read
and follow the manufacturer's safe-
ty and operating instructions.
If a generator is connected to the
house wiring, the home must have
a transfer switch installed by a
licensed electrician. A transfer


switch connects your house to the
generator and disconnects it from
the utility power. This prevents
back feed energizing circuits out-
side your home.
Back feed most commonly
occurs when a generator is con-
nected directly to the electric panel
or circuit in a home. Feeding power
back into the utility system during
an outage will energize the trans-
former serving the house and could
pose a serious threat to crews
working to restore power in the
area who may not know they are
working with an energized line,
even possibly causing death.
Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a col-
orless, odorless and tasteless poi-
son gas. It is a component of the


exhaust from the generator engine.
The symptoms of exposure are
subtle, but deadly. Never run your
generators inside your home or
garage or in any other enclosed
space. Inexpensive CO detectors,
similar to smoke alarms, are readily
available and recommended as an
added safety precaution.
After Hurricane Charley, the
Cape Coral Fire Department con-
ducted over 400 safety inspections
of households in the city using gen-
erators. One-fourth of the homes
had potentially dangerous levels of
Carbon Monoxide in their houses,
and 10 people required hospital
treatment. To avoid Carbon
Monoxide poisoning, never use a


generator indoors or in attached
garages. Only operate the generator
outdoors in a well-ventilated, dry
area away from air intakes to the
home.
To avoid electrocution, plug
individual appliances into the gen-
erator using heavy duty, outdoor
rated cords with a wire gauge ade-
quate for the appliance load. Do
not operate more appliances and
equipment than the output rating
of the generator. This will overload
and damage the generator and pos-
sibly create a fire hazard.
When purchasing a generator
for your home it is difficult to know
what you should buy. Use this
* guide to help determine which gen-
erator is right for you.


Harris moves to

permanently ban oil

drilling off Florida


Washington, D.C. U.S.
Rep. Katherine Harris was joined
by 18 of her colleagues from the
Florida Congressional delegation
in introducing legislation Tues-
day to permanently ban oil
drilling off the Florida Coastline.
"The Florida Coastline Pro-
tection Act of 2005" (H.R. 3251)
would amend the Outer Conti-
nental Shelf Lands Act to prohibit
any oil and gas leasing in areas of
the Outer Continental Shelf,
including the Eastern Gulf of
Mexico, the Straits of Florida, and
the South Atlantic planning area,
which extends from the Straits of
Florida planning area to the bor-
der between Florida and Geor-
gia.
"This legislation will make
sure that the Florida coastline is
protected from the incursions of
oil companies and other pro-
drilling interests," Harris said.
"The people of Florida treasure
our beaches and coastal areas,
not only for their beauty, but also
because they are critical to our
state's tourism industry and
economy. The best way to pro-


tect these precious areas is to
ensure that the ban on drilling is
extended permanently. I am
delighted that we have built a
bipartisan coalition to stand unit-
ed to protect our coastline
against these assaults."
The moratorium on drilling,
which currently is slated to
expire in 2012, has played a criti-
cal role in protecting the Gulf's
delicate ecosystem and Florida's
beaches and tourism industry
from the potentially devastating
effects of an oil spill in the Gulf.
During consideration of the
Energy Bill in the U.S. Senate on
June 21, the Senate voted to
allow an inventory of offshore oil
and gas resources in the Western
Gulf a move that many fear
could open the door to further
exploration and drilling in the
area, with serious consequences
for the Florida coastline and
tourism. Harris has pledged to
work with other members of the
Florida Congressional delegation
to ensure that' the inventory pro-
posal is stripped from the final
conference bill later this year.

Portable Generators: Know watt's right and wrong


TAVARES, Fla. -With seven to
nine hurricanes predicted for the
:current season including two or
three that will hit the United States
-- sales of portable generators are
rising fast, and so are the safety
concerns about using them.
University of Florida extension
safety experts say common mis-
takes include operating generators
in closed spaces without proper
ventilation, overloading them with
too many appliances and plugging
or wiring them directly into house
electrical systems.
"First, if you're going to buy a
generator, don't wait until the last
minute,"' said Julie England, a Lake
County extension agent, with UF's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences, or UF/IFAS. "Buying


before demand peaks will save
money."
Before you buy, determine your
power needs. She said some peo-
ple think a generator will provide
enough power to run everything in
the house. An average household
needs 3,000 to 5,000 watts to pro-
vide enough energy for basic needs
such as lighting, cooking, refrigera-
tion and pumping water.
Calculate the wattage needed
for additional appliances that are
convenient but not essential 'for
day-to-day living. Then find the
right combination of power and
price to fit your needs. Most gener-
ators in this wattage range sell for
$400 to $700.
"When you determine how
many watts of generating capacity


you will need, calculate running
watts and starting watts," England
said. ."Starting watts are the extra
power needed to start the appli-
ance, and they are usually at least
twice the amount needed to oper-
ate the appliance. Add the running
and starting watts to get. the total
wattage that will be needed -
overloading your generator can
damage the appliances and gener-
ator."
England said it's important to
start the generator without the
appliances plugged, in. Start by
plugging in the most necessary
appliance and the one that con-
sumes the highest wattage. Add
other appliances one .at time,
allowing the generator to stabilize


as each one is added. Stay under
the wattage rating, and do not
operate the generator at maxi-
mum wattage for more than 30
minutes.
"Never plug a generator into a
household outlet," England said.
"This may cause a problem
known as back feeding, sending a
surge of power through the lines
that can injure or kill power work-
ers or your neighbors. When your
electric utility restores the. power,
the resulting power could damage
your generator."
She said the only way to hook
up a generator to house wiring is
with a transfer switch installed by
a licensed electrician. This may
require a permit from the local


electric utility provider.
Carol Lehtola, an associate
professor and safety expert at
UF/IFAS in Gainesville, said
portable generators should be
operated in a safe, secure, well-
ventilated place.
"Generators give off dangerous
carbon monoxide (CO) gas that
cannot be seen or smelled. Do not
place generators near doors, win-
dows, ventilation intakes or any
other place that lets gas into your
home," she said.
Generators should be at least
five feet from buildings or any-
thing that might catch fire. Protect
the generator from rain by placing
it under a roof or canopy. Keep
children away from the generator,


and keep it out of view to prevent
theft.
"Be courteous to your neigh-
bors," Lehtola said. "'A generator
can be very noisy, so try to place it
in an area that's as far away from
other homes as possible. Make
sure fumes from the generator
don't enter their homes."
Lehtola said it's important to
read the owner's manual before
starting the generator for the first
time. "Don't wait until you need
the generator before using it. Start
your generator every month to
help maintain the engine and
recharge the battery. If you wait
until there is a power failure to
start the generator, it may not start
or run properly," she said.
