Hospital is cleared in court


Judge declares
hospital in full
compliance
By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON Hendry
Regional Medical Center was
cleared of any wrongdoing at an
evidentiary hearing ,by Judge
Frederick Hardt of the 20th Cir-
cuit Court in LaBelle on Tuesday,
July 26.
After hearing presentations of


evidence from the counsel for
the hospital and U.S. Sugar,
Judge Hardt ruled that the hospi-
tal was in full compliance with
the Open Meetings Act and
denied U.S. Sugar's request for a
Writ of Mandamus.
The hospital .had claimed for
several months to have been in
compliance with the regulation.
, Concerned about the future of
the local hospital, U.S. Sugar filed
the public information suit in
February. The suit was filed


against the hospital and its part-
ner, Physical Therapy Dynamics
Inc. to obtain specific informa-
tion that had been requested on
several occasions.
According to U.S. Sugar, the
company had to file suit after the
requests were "stonewalled" by
the medical staff.
After a significant delay from
the date of the original hearing
on April 1, which was actually
held June 27, the court deferred
judgment for further considera-


tion until a hearing was held in
LaBelle on July 26.
At that hearing, hospital repre-
sentatives testified as to what the
hospital could and could not pro-
vide in terms of departmental
accounting. The arguments
specified that net revenue could
not be. reported for a specific
department, which was a major
point of contention between the
companies.
HRMC Chief Financial Officer
Nick Braccino attended the hear-


ing, and presented additional evi-
dence compiled from financial
reports, as Well as factual evi-
dence to give the judge a com-
plete profile of the hospital's
financial structure.
"Once we specified what
information we, were responsi-
ble for reporting, and after care-
fully considering the entire body
of evidence, the judge declared
that no wrongdoing had

What's going on in the world of art


3


Editor's note: Mrs. Ann Tyler is
a well-respected artist and
author, living in the Glades. Her
newest column, "Art Talk", will
run monthly in the first week's
editions of the Clewiston News,
Glades County LDemocrat, and
SThe Sun.
Hey! Welcome to Art Talk.
When I was invited to write this
art column for The Sun my first
thought was, what goes around
really does come around
because back in the 70's I wrote
the column Art Talk for The Belle
Glade Herald for several years.
So, here we go again.
If you're not an art person join
us anyway because art is for
everyone! You'll be surprised at
"some of the things I'm going to
show you, through the eye of the
artist, about your home the
Glades.
Before I start to fill the lines of
. this column with what I hope
will entertain and enlighten you,
let me first take a few lines to
introduce myself to those who
might be thinking, "Who is Ann


Tyler?" I'm the Artist of the
Glades. I took that title for myself
many years ago when I stopped
being just a portrait artist and
realized that my "Giverny gar-
den," Monet's inspiration, was
the beautiful tropical Everglades.
This is my place, the Glades I
was born here, raised here, and
hope to die here.
I can get real excited about
painting Seminoles, alligators,
turtles, exotic orchids, and Beany
Backus Florida skies. You may
have. seen some of my work on
the covers of the Black Gold
Jubilee booklets, or in the Bank
of Belle Glade, Fidelity Federal


banks, Everglades Research and
Education Center, different
museums, and businesses
around the county.
I've been teaching the art of
fine oil painting here in Belle
Glade for over 30 years, and the
Glades Art Group is actually the
hundreds and hundreds of
Glades people that have come to
my studio seeking to enrich their
lives through the fine arts. The
Glades Art Group has their yearly
art showing at the Black Gold
Jubilee.
Let me end this first column
by telling you about one of my
favorite artists the caveman.


Did you know that the prehistoric
clans supported their artist, and
they were amazed and enthralled
with the drawings on the cave
walls. These weren't some scrib-
bling by a lower intelligence, but
ecstatic drawings that were
15,000 years ahead of their time.
Surely a sign that man wasn't
"monkeying around" way back
there in those cave days.
I certainly realize that the sup-
port of my Glades community
has made it possible for me to

Home remedies include Epsom salts


I love home remedies espe-
cially when an inexpensive house-
hold product has a number of uses.
Epsom salt is one of those useful
substances that falls into that cate-
gory.
I first purchased Epsom salt
about three years ago, on the
advice of a veterinarian. He pre-
scribed an Epsom salt foot soak for
an injured horse. I noticed on the
package that the substance has
mar.. other uses. A little online
research uncovered more uses.
Epsom salt is the common
name for magnesium sulfate
(MgSo4). I have also found it
spelled "Epson salt".
Epsom salt is naturally occur-
ring part of sea salt, About two per-
cent of sea salt is Epsom salt. It has
medical, veterinary, nutritional, and
* horticulture uses.

the shampoo mixture to your hair

rinse and wash with your regular

GAINESVILLE To help Flori-
da schoolchildren understand
farming and its impact on their
lives, University of Florida experts
are 'contributing to a statewide
program that enables teachers to
incorporate agricultural educa-
tion in a variety of courses:
-Florida Agriculture in the
Classroom, or FAITC, offers free
or nominally priced materials suit-
able for students from pre-K to
through grade 12 to public and
private school teachers, said Lisa
Gaskalla, executive director of the
program. Although the program
is housed at UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences, or
UF/IFAS, it is an independent
- organization funded by sales of
the agriculture specialty license
plate, and supported by UF/IFAS,
Florida agriculture industry
organizations and the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services.
"Many children think food
comes from the grocery store,"


Gaskalla said. "Farming may be in
a family's background, but it's
generally two or more genera-
tions back. For us, the challenge is
to make agriculture relevant to
these kids, and provide informa-
tion in a form that's practical for
teachers to use."
FAITC offers an array of grade-
specific lesson plans that use agri-
cultural topics to teach language
arts, math, science and social
studies lessons, she said. A typical
example gives students citrus
juice production data and teaches
them about percentages by ask-
ing them to calculate how much
production has changed from
one year to another.
The program includes four
other features, Gaskalla said. One
provides grants to pay for school
gardens and agricultural field
trips. Another brings small lend-
ing libraries called Ag Learning
Barns to schools, where teachers
can check out agriculturally
-themed books, puzzles and


videos for students.
The third feature, AgriSmarts,
has officers from The National
FFA Organization visit schools to
discuss everyday items that come
from the farm, she said. The


fourth, Ag Literacy Day, brings FFA
officers, farmers, ranchers and
industry representatives to
schools to read a designated chil-
dren's book about agriculture to
students.

Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the Clewiston issues blog at httpV//newsblog.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 bepublished in the newspa-
per as space permits.
HOW COULD YOU?: This is to the grandma of the twin girls. You
took them away from their dad that has been mom and dad for
seven years, because he was unhappy you said he cheated, but so
did you. They didn't take your kid away. I used to be your best
friend, but you went the wrong way. Now, I want to know can you
favor one grandkid over the other? So, how can you look at yourself
in the mirror and call yourself, "Nanny"?

SHOPPING CART GRAVEYARD: This is aimed at the city of
Clewiston. I seen you guys pulling shopping carts out of the canals
around town. Looked like they had a whole mess of them they were
putting on a trailer. Why can't the city manager talk to these grocery
stores about having someone pick these things up? I see them all
over the town. Looks like the city of Clewiston is paying these water
people to pull these shopping carts out of the canals. People at the
grocery stores. should have someorie come out and pick these
things up before they end up there. City manager needs to do some-
thing instead of sitting around and riding in a car and talking about
trash in canals and things. He needs to get out and talk to these peo-
ple. We're taxpayers you know, keep our grocery bills down. I
know those shopping carts cost about $100-$150 apiece, if not
more. And here they're hauling them off to the trash. City manager
needs to see this or hear this.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. You are correct that shopping
cart theft eventually comes back on the consumer, however, it is a
theft and falls under law enforcement, business, and individual
responsibility. We encourage citizens to report any individual who
is pushing a shopping cart outside of a grocery store environment to
the police.

A CELEBRATION OF BLACKNESS: Being a former president of
the Harlem Academy Alumni Association, I was dumbfounded by
the comments that were made in the recent article that appeared in
the Clewiston News concerning "The Brown Sugar Festival". First I
would like to say that I was sorry to hear, about the young man that
lost his life, it was tragic, however, there's no way the festival can be
blamed for it. Number one, the incident happened more than five.
hours after the event. There were no incidents at the teen dance or
the adult dance. If you are looking for someone to blame, try our
honorable sheriff, Ronnie Lee, as sheriff he is responsible for the
safety of all the people in his county. Mr. Lee has lived in the county
all of his life and has been here for all 25 previous festivals. He knew
that an inordinate amount of people would be in'town and should
have adjusted his staff accordingly.
I would also like to address the comments made by the residents
of Harlem. The Brown Sugar Festival is a celebration of blackness,
it's the way we black people have fun. One minister commented
about the music that is being played at the festival, let's examine the
music that is being played in the churches nowadays. It's hard to tell
the difference between gospel and the blues (RAP and R&B). Fur-
thermore, ministers have adjusted to the way women dress for
church. When I was a boy, it was unheard of for women wearing a
low-cut (cleavage baring), tight mini shirt, pants, or shorts to
church, but it is accepted now. The festival is not only a celebration
of blackness, it's a celebration of our black culture. Integration
robbed us of our neighborhood school, let's not let them take away
our celebration. Keep the festival in the community and provide
more patrolling officers for the safety of all our citizens.

The, reality is, you won't always
catch a fish every time you go
fishing no matter how good
the bait, the equipment, or the
location. But persistence pays
off. We kept at it and were finally
rewarded with a catch at the
11th hour.
One. day Jesus was walking
along the seashore when he saw
two brothers named Peter and
Andrew. Jesus knew that they
were fishermen, so he said to
them, "Come, follow me and I
will make you fishers of men."
Do you know what they did?
'They laid down their nets and
followed Him.
Jesus wants you and me to be
fishers of men too. That means
Jesus wants us to tell others
what He has done for Us and
what He wants to do for them.
What does it take to be a fisher
of men? Go back to the fishing
basics.
First, we need to have the
right equipment. We need to


know what the Bible says and
know how to share it with oth-
ers. Second, we need to remem-
ber that we can't just sit around
reading the Bible and talking
about being fishers of men and
expect to bring people to Christ.
We have to go out to % here the
people are and share with them
there.
Finally, we must learn
patience and persistence. Every-
body we tell about Jesus isn't
going to believe. Some people
just won't be interested. Others
may just take time and persist-
ence. The main thing is not to
give up. We need to keep on
sharing with people and let the
Holy Spirit take care of the rest. If
we will do these things, we can
become fishers of men like
Jesus wants us to be. And if you
think there is a tremendous feel-
ing of excitement when you
catch a fish, just imagine how
exciting it will be to bring some-
one to a closer relationship with
Christ!

Sincerely: you tell when your dog has
Laura M. Gay arthritis? Jessica in Belle Glade.
A: Hey Jessica, that's a very
commonly asked question by
many of my clients! Most dogs,
and humans too, will eventually
e S suffer from some form of arthrit-
Sic pain as time goes by.. Since
ew dogs can't tell us if they are
uncomfortable we need to be
aware of certain signs. Some of
the things that dogs will do
when they have arthritis is: Act-
vspapers of ing slower in general, taking a
enables long time getting up from a good
dce tohe nap, having difficulty with going
Standardss: up stairs, and sometimes limp-
s mission of ing. The best thing to do is to talk
s sts o to your veterinarian. I can some-
the times feel arthritis when I pal-
pate a dog. The biggest help to
diagnose arthritis in a pet is lis-
tening to what their owner has
to.say about how the pet has
been acting. In either case I usu-
ally recommend anti-inflamma-
tory medication.. My favorite one
is a product called Metacam. It is
once a day and dogs love the fla-
.em vor!
irn Great question Jessica. Take
care, Doc Savvy.
gee Q: Dear Doc Savvy. I am wit-
dauis ting to get an opinion. Earlier
ya this month we applied Frontline
pears on our Pomeranian dog. I don't
think it's working very well
because she seems to still have
fleas., Do you have any recom-
ations. TomByrd mendations to help? Signed,
,.n "Please help in Royal Palm
Beach!"
A: Hello there, "Please help in
Royal Palm Beach!" You are not
I Press alone here, so don't worry, there
ataon are a few things you can do. First


If they take the attitude that,
"I got away with it once, I'll get
away with it
again", they're' : I
tempting fate
and asking for
real trouble. 'w-
There is a ..
great Biblical -
parable, about
the wheat and
the tares, or,
the wheat and e.amuel
the weeds ev.Samuel
(Mathew S. Thomas
13:24ff)..
A man sows good seed in his'
field but when the wheat sprout-
ed up, weeds also appeared. His
servants ask.about pulling up
the weeds, but the man is afraid
that in pulling up the weeds, the
wheat will be uprooted as well.
He advises, "Let them both grow
together until the harvest." The
weeds will be separated when
the wheat has formed and has
strength enough to stand on its
own.
In reality, we're all a combi-
nation of good and bad and our
salvation rests not in our good
deeds (real or imagined ones!),
but in our slowly growing
toward the.good. I believe a big
part of seeing the just prevail is


p .' m'm

of all make. sure the shampoo
you use to bathe your dog is
compatible with Frontline. It has
to be a soap-free product. Also,
keep in mind that Frontline is
not something that,repels fleas,
it acts as something to kill them
when they land on the pet and it
is not immediate. It may take
several hours for the fleas to die.
There are two other areas that
need to be treated for proper
flea control in the home, and
in the yard, It is very important
to control the fleas in the com-
plete environment in order to
get good flea control. Remem-
ber we live in one the biggest
flea havens in North America, so
going the extra mile is impera-
tive. Hope that helps. Take care,
Doc Savvy.

having patience to let things
work out as they should. In the
parable, it is obvious that the
weeds are there and should be
eliminated. The owner of the
vineyard shows patience he
knows how things will come out
and knows that the good can be
weak at times too. In his wis-
dom, he sees that it will work
out, and because he firmly
believes that the good will tri-
umph, he is willing to wait.
There are many times that we
don't like to wait, and I'm one of
the first to want things to hap-
pen NOW! I know though, that
things don't always happen as
I'd like them but I also know that
one day they will work out, as
God wants things to be. I don't'
know about the outcome of
some of the conflicts I hear
about nightly on television, or
know about how many people
Will suffer in the meantime. I
have only a limited knowledge
of economics and see, shifting
patterns around the world when
it comes to buying selling, man-
ufacturing and trading.


I see the hand of God at work
in past conflicts and see correc-
tions taking place in the industri-
al sector. see the same people
appearing in the public eye and
watch the pressure .on them
change their views as time goes
on.
There was another saying
that T heard a long time ago that
gives me hope in the midst ofn'
everything; "The mills 'of God'
grind slowly, but the grind is
exceedingly fine." When it
seems that the bad guys are win-
ning or that- things are getting
worse, I can say to myself, "That-
maybe for the moment."
Then every once and awhile, the
wrongdoers are caught in their
own schemes and they suffer for'
them. Those are the moments,
which affirm that it is God who
is in control, finally, and we get a
reminder about just whose way
we're supposed to follow. Every
once and awhile the good guys
win on the 11 p.m. news too,
but that's how it is, supposed to ,
be. That's how God has destined
itto happen.

trolled drugs, state agents arrested
nine people on charges they oper-
ated unlicensed Internet-based
"pill mills," Attorney General
: Charlie Crist and Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement Com-
missioner Guy Tunnell
Announced.
The defendants' operation,
one of the first of its kind broken
up in Florida, filled nationwide
- orders for powerful painkillers
.Jand other medications without
prescriptions or pharmacists, the
officials said. -
The South Florida-based crimi-
nal organization, which allegedly
I was headed by Abel Rodriguez of
SNorth Bay Village, is accused of
illegally filling more than $10 mil-
lion worth of Internet drug orders
since late 2003. The vast majority
of the drug distributions were for
the pain killer hydrocodone, but
also included alprazolam, phen-
termine and other prescription
drugs.
More than 650,000 pills, valued
at $1.9 million, have been seized
by members of a Diversion
Response Team task. force.
Authorities have also obtained thed
:forfeiture of more than: $2.2 m,-
lion in cash and property,and the
state Department of Heath' has
issued emergency orders halting
activities at licensed pharmacies
involved in the operation. The
investigation is continuing.
"Internet pill pushers operate
without regard to the law or med-
ical necessity, and certainly with-
out regard to safety. Their primary
focus is on making a quick buck,"
said Crist. "There is no place in
Florida for these kind of drug deal-
ers, and the Diversion Response
Team has done an outstanding job
of shutting down this operation."
The arrests were the culmina-


Response Team.
The task force included repre-
sentatives of FDLE, the Attorney
General's Medicaid Fraud Control
Unit and Office of Statewide Pros-
ecution, the U.S. Drug Enforce-
ment Administration and the state
Department of Health.
"Operation Backroom is a
great example of the success that
can come from inter-agency
cooperation," said FDLE Commis-
sioner Tunnell. "By working with
the Attorney General's Office of
Statewide Prosecution, their. Med-
icaid Fraud Unit, Florida's Depart-
ment of Health and the federal
Drug Enforcement Administra-
tion, this collaborative effort has
produced results.that none of us
could have gained through a sin-
gle, individual effort."
Added DEA Special Agent in
Charge Mark R. Trouville, "Drug
traffickers who pursue their illegal
business via the Internet are no
different than street corner drug
peddlers and DEA, along with
state and local authorities in the
Miami area, consider pharmaceu-
tical drug diversion a priority and
will not tolerate cyber drug traf-
ficking."
The nine suspects were picked
up in early morning sweeps
throughout Miami-Dade County,
and a tenth defendant was being
sought out of state.
Among those arrested were
the organization's alleged ring-
leader, Abel Rodriguez, 48; his
wife, Nuria Rodriguez, 48; the
couple's sons, Erik Abel
Rodriguez, 24, and Kris Abel
Rodriguez, 22; and the organiza-
tion's operations manager, Emilio
Urratia, 53.
Bonds for the 10 defendants
total $51 million. All those arrested
in Miami-Dade were transported


operated at several licensed and
unlicensed locations throughout
Miami-Dade County to fill Internet
orders that were not accompa-
nied by legitimate prescriptions.
The investigation showed that, for
example, customers paid about
$200 for an order of .60
hydrocodone pills, which the.
defendants purchased through
their shell pharmacies for about
$7 from a pharmaceutical whole-
saler. Agents estimate that each of
the operation's locations filled at
least 2,000 orders perweek.
"Any practitioner who endan-
gers the health or safety of Floridi-
ans should be fully investigated
and disciplined accordingly," said
Department of Hbalth Deputy Sec-
retary for Health Nancy Humbert.
"DOH is proud to have been a part
of this collaborative effort to com-
bat criminal activity that puts the
public's health at risk, and we
implore consumers to use the
resources we have in place to veri-
fy the status of their health care
provider's license to, ensure they
are receiving quality health care."'
The defendants allegedly used
several licensed pharmacies,
including Nuria's.a Familia Phar-
macy, JR Pharmacy, K&N'Group
and International Latin. Medical
Corp., to order and receive large
wholesale shipments of various
medications. The investigation
revealed that several of the phar-
macies never opened, for legiti-
mate business and were only
being used as "fronts" or "shell"
businesses to order the medica-
tions.
Once the medications were
received at the various pharma-
cies, they would be shipped to
other locations throughout South
Florida where the pills would be
counted, packaged, labeled and,


the pill packages were taken to
legitimate couriers for shipment to
customers.
Investigators found no valid
prescriptions for filled Internet
orders; in some instances, the
only requirement imposed on the
person requesting the pills was
completion of an Internet ques-
tionnaire. Investigators also said
the defendants who filled the
Internet orders, at times, used
unsanitary back rooms at the
"shell" businesses to fill the
requests. The defendants were
not licensed pharmacists, nor
were they licensed in the health
care profession. Investigators said
the pill bottlesthey seized were
not properly labeled.
Conviction for conspiracy to
commit trafficking of 28 grams or
more of hydrocodone carries an
automatic 25-year minimum
mandatory sentence. In addition
to the 10 suspects arrested today
in Miami-Dade County or sought
out of state, another man, Jorge
Luis Salazar, 22, is a fugitive being
sought for arrest. The arrests bring
to 22 the total number of individu-
als who have been arrested in the
case over the course of the investi-
gation, including 12 who were
arrested earlier this year.
Florida's Diversion Response
Teams were formed in July 2004
following legislative authorization.
These teams currently operate
throughout Florida and are based
in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Orlan-
do, Fort Myers, Tampa, Tallahas-
see, Pensacola and Jacksonville.
The goal of the teams is to work
with other state, local and federal
law enforcement and regulatory
agencies to combat crimes con-
nected with the organized diver-
sion of pharmaceutical drugs.


SATOP outreach program has free consultation


Not every company can
afford their own private engineer
and when problems arise and
service is needed the company
ends up paying a pretty penny
for consulting fees. Not so if you
check into Space Alliance Tech-
nical Outreach. Program
(SATOP) through the Hendry
County Economic Development
Council (HCEDC).
A contract for 40 hours of free
consulting service between
SATOP and HCEDC .is at your dis-
posal. Most, problems can be


solved in those 40 hours. Plus,
you end up with your own pri-
vate engineer, or team of engi-
neers, who work tirelessly to
help you solve your problem.
For your 40 hours, usually far
quicker, you get your problem
analyzed and the solution identi-
fied. The consultants are scien-
tists who have earned their cre-
dentials working on the NASA
space program over the years
and they take their knowledge to
apply day-to-day technical prob-
lems that all ofus confront from


time-to-time. Access to their
broad based technical expertise
is a big plus for us. Don't think of
these scientists as too "High
Tech" for you and don't think
your problem is too insignificant
to address. No problem is too
small for the SATOP team.
SATOP is a state-run aid proj-
ect and has been helping small
business since 1995. The pro-
gram went national in 2001 and
receives over $3 million year in
funding. The economic impact
of their services is far reaching


and in August of 2004 they
reported that over $134 million
total has impacted the economy
of our nation.
Local businesses like South-
ern DataStream of LaBelle have
taken advantage of this service
and received help solving their
problems. Why not give us a call
today to discuss how you can
take advantage, too.

Death can occur as fast as 15

Getting kids ready to go back to school School briefs


With a new school year just a
few weeks away, many parents
are facing one of their largest
single expenses of the year -
getting their kids ready to go.
"Buying school supplies,
along with new shoes and
clothes, can put a strain on the
family budget," said Jessica
Cecere, president of Consumer
Credit Counseling Service of
Palm Beach County & the Trea-
sure Coast (CCCS). "And waiting
until the last minute to shop can
lead to frenzied shopping, over-
spending, and unnecessary
credit-card debt. A little planning
can save time and money."
CCCS offers tips to help families
get ready.
Start by taking a thorough
inventory of what you already
have. Round up all your excess
school supplies and check the
closets for clothes and shoes
that fit and are still in good
shape. Make a list of things you
still need, and develop a budget.
Then, prioritize your list, with
the most important at the top. If
your budget requires you to cut
items from your list, start at the
bottom.
The next step is to compare
prices of different items. If a
store five miles away is offering
a low price on blue jeans or uni-
form prices, it may be worth the
drive. Buy underwear, socks,
and other basics in quantity
when they are on sale, making
sure to allow for growth.
Check as many newspaper
advertisements and catalogs as
possible before you finally make
your purchases. And don't forget
to check consignment, discount


and outlet stores, as many carry
quality school clothes and uni-
form components at lower
prices. For younger children,
who grow so quickly, consider
swapping clothes with friends,
family and neighbors.
Another important strategy is
to remember that what you buy
is as important as how you buy.
Basic, durable clothing will
stretch your dollars significantly.
Check for strong buttonholes,
secure buttons, reinforced
stitching, firmly woven or knit-
ted fabric, and basic styles. And
avoid fad items, as they will like-
ly be cool for only a short time.
Some important things to
remember about back-to-school
.shopping:.
Children grow quickly. What
fits in August might not fit in Jan-
uary. So look for clothes that
your kids won't outgrow too
quickly, like blouses and shirts
with long tails, or shorts and
pants with elastic waistbands.
During the school year, you can
turn pants into shorts or make
short sleeves out of long sleeves,
as your child grows. Consider
consigning clothes that no
longer fit as a way to earn
money for new clothes.
Kids like easy clothes. For
younger children, getting the
best value for your dollar means
buying clothes they like to wear.
Look for articles they can man-
age without much. help. For
example, front openings, flat
buttons, easy-to-reach pockets,
elastic waistbands, and large,
necklines make it easier for kids
to get dressed in the morning.
Remember, the easier it is for


them to dress themselves, the
less stressful your mornings will
be.
Save- on school supplies.
Before you run to the "back to
school" section at an expensive
retailer, compare prices with
lower-priced outlets and office-
supply stores. You might find
that the spiral notebook with the
really colorful cover is more
expensive and has less paper
than the one with the plain
cover. Some schools will bundle
school supplies and offer them
for sale this' may be a less
expensive way to get what you
need, and will certainly save you
time.
Shopping for school clothes
and supplies also gives parents a
great opportunity to teach their
children about spending habits.
Sit down with your children and
talk about the budget for sup-
plies and clothes. Let them do
the comparison shopping and
point out that if they get the
more expensive sneakers, they
have to cut back in other areas.
Not only will they learn about.
smart shopping, they will value
what youi buy for them much
more.
In Florida, parents can also
take advantage of a sales tax hol-
iday. From July 23 through July
31, shoppers will not pay sales
tax on the following back to
school items: Clothing and relat-
ed items with a sales price of $50
or less, books with. a sales price
of $50 or less, and school sup-
plies with a sales price of $10 or
less. This can help your back-to-
school budget go a little further.
The most important strategy


for back-to-school shopping is
to stick to the budget you set.
Bring only as much cash as you
need, based on your budget, and
leave your credit cards at home.
You will prepare your children
for another wonderful school
year without breaking the family'
budget.

Two arrested for poaching gators


NAPLES Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion officers arrested two Heritage
Greens Golf Club maintenance
workers for cruelty to animals and
unlawful possession/taking of alli-
gator, both third degree felonies.
Arrested were Mark J. Metzger
(DOB 05-04-1971) and Fred J.
Rowe (DOB 07-21-1963), and
each could face up to five years in
jail and/or up to a $5,000 fine for
each charge.
FWC officers received a July 3


report of a stolen "live capture alli-
gator trap" and alligator from a
pond at the golf club. During the
investigation, both suspects
admitted to tampering with a nui-
sance wildlife trapper's equip-
ment, dragging the seven-foot alli-
gator approximately one-half mile
behind a golf cart to the mainte-
nance facility, and using a fillet
knife to remove the animal's tail
and other meat. Both men also
admitted that the alligator was
alive, but died while being


dragged to the maintenance facili-
ty.
The arrest went without inci-
dent and both men cooperated
during the investigation.
These arrests follow the July 22
arrest of a Charlotte County cou-
ple for deliberately feeding an alli-
gator, a second-degree misde-
meanor. Anyone having
information about the feeding of
alligators is urged to report the
incident to the toll free Wildlife
Alert Hotline at (888) 404-3922.


Those reporting violations may
remain anonymous and be eligi-
ble for a reward.
The FWC recommends
observing alligators from a dis-
tance. Information on how to live
with alligators is listed in the
FWC's "Living with Alligators"
brochure found online at
MyFWC.com/gators.
Nuisance alligators should be
reported to the FWC by calling toll
free (866) FWC-GATOR, (866)
392-4286.

Hot temperatures cause health problems


By MaryAnn Morris
The heat has been. hovering at
-the-90-plus-degree mark and the
heat index is reportedly 11.0
S "We have treated 66 percent
more heat victims in the past two
weeks," said Hendry Regional
Medical Center Director of Mar-
keting Rodney Larson.
According to the Center for
Disease Control (CDC), exposure
to excessive heat (10 degrees
higher than the normal average)
working outdoors in higher tem-
peratures that you are used to can
make you sick. Heat stroke, left
untreated can cause death and
heat exhaustion left untreated can
lead to heat stroke: If you get heat
cramps, you'll have to stop what
you're trying so hard to get done
while you take steps to relieve the
symptoms.
To avoid these problems, wear
loose, lightweight, light-colored
clothes, wear a broad-brimmed
hat, work early in the morning or
early in the evening. Drink two to
four glasses of water every hour.
Take it slow and stop periodically
to rest and cool off. Listen to your
body. Be aware of the following
symptoms and knowwhat to do if
you experience one or all of them.
Warning signs of HEAT
STROKE vary but may include the
following:
S An extremely high body tem-
perature (above 103iF, orally)
a *e Red, hot, and dry skin (no
sweating)
S Rapid, strong pulse
Throbbing headache
Dizziness
S Nausea
Confusion


Unconsciousness
Heat stroke occurs when.the
body is unable to regulate its tem-
perature. The body's temperature
rises rapidly, the sweating mecha-
nism fails, and the body is unable
to cool down. Body temperature
may rise to 106iF or higher within
10 to 15 minutes. Heat stroke can
cause death or permanent disabil-
, ity if emergency treatment is not
provided.
WHAT TO DO If you see
any of these signs, have someone
call for immediate medical assis-
tance while you begin cooling the
victim. Do the following:
Get the victim to a shady
area.
Cool the victim rapidly using
whatever methods you can. For
example, immerse the victim in a
tub of cool water; place the per-
son in a cool shower; spray the
victim with cool water from a gar-
den hose; sponge the person with
cool water; or if the humidity is
low, wrap the victim in a cool, wet
sheet and fan him or her vigor-.
ously.
Monitor body temperature,
and continue cooling efforts until
the body temperature drops to
101-102iF.
If emergency medical per-
sonnel are delayed, call the hospi-
tal emergency room for further
instructions.
Do not give the victim fluids
to drink.
Get medical assistance as
soon as possible.
Sometimes a victim's muscles
will begin uncontrollably as a
result of heat stroke. If this hap-
pens, keep the victim from injur-


ing himself, but do not place any
object in the mouth and do not
give fluids. If there is vomiting,
make sure the airway remains
:open by turning the victimon his
or her side.
HEAT EXHAUSTION is a
milder form of heat-related illness
that can develop after several days
of exposure to high temperatures
and inadequate or unbalanced!
replacement of fluids. It is the
body's response to losing too
Much of the water and salt con-
tained in sweat.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
*Heavy sweating
*Paleness
*Muscle cramps
*Tiredness
*Weakness
*Dizziness
*Headache
*Nausea or vomiting
*Fainting
The skin may be cool and
moist. The victim's pulse rate will
be. fast and weak, and breathing
will be fast and shallow. If heat
exhaustion is untreated, it may
progress to heat stroke. Seek
medical attention immediately if
any of the following occurs:
*Symptoms are severe.
*The victim has heart prob-
lems or high blood pressure.
Otherwise, help the victim to
cool off, and seek medical atten-
tion if symptoms worsen or last
longer than one hour.
WHAT TO DO: Cooling meas-
ures that may be effective include
the following:
Cool, nonalcoholic bever-
ages, as directed by your physi-
cian.


Rest
Cool shower, bath, or
sponge bath
..* An air-conditioned envirorin-
merit
Lightweight clothing .
HEAT CRAMPS usually affect
people who sweat a lot during
strenuous activity. This sweating
depletes the body's salt and mois-
ture. The low salt level in the mus-
cles causes painful cramps. Heat
cramps may also be a symptom
of heat exhaustion.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR: Heat
cramps are muscle pains or
spasms usually in the
abdomen, arms, or legs- that
may occur in association with
strenuous activity. If you have
heart problems or are on a low-
sodium diet, get medical attention
for heat cramps.
WHAT TO DO: If medical
attention is not necessary, take
these steps:
*. Stop all activity, and sit quiet-
ly in a cool place.
Drink clear juice or a sports
beverage.
Do not return to strenuous
activity for a few hours after the
cramps subside, because further
exertion may lead to heat exhaus-
tion or heat stroke. Seek medical
attention for heat cramps if they
do not subside in one hour.

Coach

when the school takes on the Uni-
versity of Florida in the fall.
An impressive football resume
is almost an understatement
when talking about coach Schnel-
lenberger. A 42-year veteran as a
football coach, Schnellenberger
has served as a head coach in
both the NCAA and the NFL.
Among his most impressive
posts was as an assistant coach of
the Miami Dolphins during the
team's historic undefeated season
in 1972. He later was the head
coach of the Baltimore Colts.
After a successful 13-year NFL
career, Schnellenberger became
the head coach of the University
of Miami Hurricanes, which was
on the verge of phasing out its
football program in 1979. Instead,
the Hurricanes, led by quarter-
back Jim Kelly, received an
Orange Bowl bid and won the
NCAA National Championship
four years later.
The title was Schnellenberg-
er's first'as a head coach, having
previously won three consecutive
titles as an assistant coach with
Paul "Bear" Bryant at Alabama.
He is one of only 10 active coach-
es who have won a national title.
Schnellenberger has coached
former and current NFL greats
such as Kelly, Bernie Kosar, Vinny
Testaverde, Browning Nagle,


Lawsuit

occurred," Braccino said. "It was
a concrete, definitive ruling,
which went quickly to summa-
tion," he said.
The hospital will still face
mounting financial issues after
the smoke has cleared. Braccino
stated that it would be a relief to
be able to dedicate more of its
staff to those issues after the
judge's ruling.
Despite the relief, Braccino
said, the ruling was anti-climactic,
since the ruling was based on a
state of affairs the hospital
believed to exist throughout the
lawsuit.
"We'd like to continue dedicat-
ing our maximum effort for good
patient care, as well as improved
financial stewardship, and keep-
ing things running on the right
track," said Braccino.
Rodney Larson, director of
Marketing and Human
Resources, said that there will
have to be some time to adjust
from having spent $11,000 on
legal fees, as well as having dedi-
cated a dozen staff members
towards researching and defend-
ing against the lawsuit.

nesses receive any recognition for
the contributions they make to
their community. This is a "once

the economic development coun-
cil office at admin@hendrycoun-

The guidelines are the same as
last year. The nominee should be
a business that has contributed to
the economic development of
Hendry County this past year.
Expansion, new hires, deci-
sion to locate here, and training
programs are just a few reasons
why someone could be nominat-
ed. A committee will select from
the nominations and judging will
be based on commitment to the
community and economic devel-
opment. Fill out the nomination
form and submit before Aug. 30.

Michael Irvin, Brian and Bennie
Blades, and Ray Buchanan,
among many others.
Coach Schnellenberger
encouraged the guests to come
out to support the FAU Owls, who
will no doubt be playing some
exciting games in the coming
years. He outlined plans for build-
ing a new stadium for the Owls,
modeled after the famous domed
stadium in Syracuse.
The proximity of the FAU cam-
pus makes it one of the closest
NCAA football programs to
Clewiston.
When discussing his aspira-
tions with the Owls, Schnellen-
berger was confident and excited
about the opportunity to play for
another national title. He made
several references to Florida State
head coach Bobby Bowden, who,
like, Schnellenberger, has "no
plans for retiring. Never thought
about it once, ever."
Also in attendance was FAU
staff member Karson Turner.
Turner is a Clewiston High School
graduate who joined the FAU staff
as a graduate assistant in 2004,
after serving as an offensive coor-
dinator at Huntingdon College in
Alabama.
Coach Schnellenberger
thanked the Clewiston Lions and
Rotary members, as well as Joe,
Sassy and Melissa Whitehead,
who helped in arranging the
coaches'visit to Clewiston.


The financial department will
begin formulating budgets in
August and September, and pre-
pare the budgets for presentation
to the Hendry County Hospital
Authority Board following the
administrative approval.

Jupiter youth group on a mission


BELLE GLADE Four middle
school youth and two adults from
First United Methodist Church in
Jupiter recently completed a mis-
sion trip where they spent two days
helping hurricane victims in Belle
Glade. The youth were Will Twee-
Sdie and Derek Parchesco of
Tequesta, Kevin Kiger and Rebecca
Weischman of Jupiter. Chaperon-
ing were David Parzek, youth
group volunteer, and Katie Gilson,
a Florida Southern College student
interning at First United Methodist
Church.
Gilson arranged the mission trip
through C.R.O.S. (Christians
Reaching Out to Society) Ministries
and the Palm Beach County Long-
STerm Recovery Coalition. The
Coalition consists of 28 community
leaders, nonprofit organizations,
business, government, and inter-
faith groups that are working
together and combining resources
in order to help rebuild PalmBeach
County and homes damaged by
Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne in
2004.
The youth group spent a day
and a half applying Kool Seal on
the roof of a mobile home dam-
aged by the hurricanes. The White
seal will stop the roof from leaking
so that damaged walls inside the
home can be repaired. The second
hurricane-related project involved

den, which originally appeared in
the Cewiston News Sept 26, 1983.
Mrs. Bowden was one of the
founders of the Clewiston Muse-
um.-
CLEWISTON During the
1920s a petite Japanese woman
won the hearts of early Clewiston
settlers. Her story is dear to the his-
tory of that town.
SClewiston, then known as
"Sand Point," was settled by a
group of Japanese farmers in 1915.
They came by, boat.,up4, 1'N~'
River Canal from Fort-Laude'rdale
to Ritta island, and then walked the
wilderness up the shore of Lake
Okeechobee to Sand Point. Mr. and
Mrs. S. %Wtanabe, who came to be
known as "Papa" and "Madam"
Watanabe were among them.
They lived in a cabin among the
custard apple trees along the ridge
near the O'Brien's home site..
When the O'Briens. came to
Clewiston they were surprised to
Find someone already there. The,
Watanabes had been vegetable
farming in the area for six years
with the other Japanese families.
But most of the others had moved
back, giving in to the wet season
and slow boat shipping for their
vegetables. This left the Watanabes
and one other couple, Albert and,
Anna Tokieda.
You might think it odd that!
SJapanese farmers would be found
Sin South Florida back then, but it
really wasn'tunusual.
Joseph Sakai, a Japanese citi-
zen, had been educated inAmeri-
ca. He thought to relieve the
crowded living conditions in his
homeland by recruiting Japanese
farmers to come to America. His,
ideas were approved from then
Florida governor William Jennings
and leading businessmen. The
Yamato community, including
George Morikami came into being
south of Delray Beach in Palm
Beach County around -the same
time.
The Watanabes welcomed the
O'Briens and gladly went to work,
running the O'Briens' home.
A frame building was complet-
ed to house a hotel upstairs and a
store and dining room downstairs.
At the O'Briens' request, the
Watanabes operated it. Their
name, uncommon in America,
had a "Hiawatha" lilt to it, so when
the hotel was named the "Watan-
abe Hotel" many people thought it
was an Indian name.
Papa Watanabe was in charge
of the kitchen and Madame was
the greeter and housekeeper. Her
smiling welcome and cheerful face
helped many newcomers adjust to
the otherwise rough lifestyle of
these early days.
Viola Owen arrived with a two-
month and two-year-old sons to
dirt paths and jungle vegetation,
she cried, as many women did
when faced with the task of mak-
ing a home and having, very little to
workwith!
"Madame is looking forward to
meeting you and she has made a
special dinner for you," her hus-
band told her.
Three Clewiston ladies, teenage
girls at the time, remember wait-
ressing for Madame at the hotel.
They remember her absolute
cleanliness, energy and her talent
for flower arrangement. Madame
had flowers everywhere: Yellow

Popular Okeechobee


boat ramp at heart


of controversy


By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
.OKEECHOBEE Residents of
Taylor Creek Lodge once again
asked the Board of County Com-
missioners July 28 for assistance
in resolving some of the issues at
Taylor Creek Lodge.
Billy Hesch, a homeowner at
the Lodge, had broached the
issue of lack of access to the Flori-
da Scenic Trail .that runs around
Lake Okeechobee on top of the
dike and the closing of the boat
ramp at Taylor Creek at the 'last
County Commission meeting on.
July 14. At that time she asked the
commission to check into the
legality of the new owners of the
Lodge, Taylor Creek Resort RV
Park LLC, being able to close off
access to the popular Trail. At that
meeting, the BOCC asked County
Attorney John Cassels to check
into the matter and prepare a
report for them.
Ms. Hesch had requested that
she be able to speak of other con-.
cerns at the park at the next meet-
ing.
The BOCC met last Thursday.
Ms. Hesch and other concerned
homeowners in Taylor Creek
Lodge were in attendance at this
meeting.
Ms. Hesch again addressed the
issue of the lack of access to the
Scenic Trail. Ms. Hesch explained
that the homeowners had been in
contact with Jena Brooks, direc-
tor of the Office of Greenways &
Trails; Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection in Tallahas-
see, regarding the lack of access
to the trail. In an e-mail from Ms.
Brooks, she stated that she was
not aware of this situation and
would look into it. Ms. Brooks
also stated that the Army Corps of
Engineers managed the trail
through an agreement with her
department.
Mr. Cassels gave the board
some of the background concern-
ing the property including the fact


that the state had approached the'
county about purchasing it, but
the county had declined due to
various issues surrounding the
possible purchase. At that point
Commissioner Posey requested a
clear and concise explanation as
to why the county did not pur-
chase the property.
There was a lengthy discus-
sion by the commissioners with
Mr. Cassels about what could be
done to rectify the situation. Mr.
Cassels made several suggestions
including the possibility of negoti-
ating with the new owner for
emergency access.
Commissioner Betts suggested
that the county look into-the pos-
sibility of placing a boat ramp on
the property where the old sewer
plant stands on S.E. 5th Ave. He
stated that this would give the
community access to Taylor
Creek. But, a consensus of opin-
ion was that just providing access
to Taylor Creek was. not the issue.
Anglers liked the location of the
old boat ramp at Taylor Creek
because of its proximity to the
lock and direct access to the lake.
The board authorized Mr. Cas-
sels to continue investigating the
issue.
.Ms.. Hesch also explained to
the commissioners that those res-
idents able to move their homes
from the park had to wait 30 or
more days for permits. She asked
if anything could be done to
speed up the process.
The commissioners explained
to her that the building depart-
ment had been inundated with
permit applications and were
,working as quickly as possible to
meet the needs of everyone in the
-community.
Many of the residents left the
meeting with no sense of resolu-
tion. Others felt that headway had
been made and stated that they
would continue to fight for their
homes up to the time that they
were forced to leave.

tion arts as well as science and
technology.

weeklong program. The attendees
were Jessica Bechtel, Jaydee Hull

USDA to extend conservation reserve program contracts


GAINESVILLE Farmers and
ranchers with certain Conserva-
tion Reserve Program (CRP) con-
tracts expiring this year may
extend their contracts for one
year, announced Kevin Kelley,
state executive director for USDA's
Farm Service Agency (FSA).
"The expiration affects
approximately 1,969 acres now
protected by the CRP in 10 Florida
counties," said Kelley. "Extending
certain existing contracts will
ensure that CRP's environmental
benefits are preserved."
Local FSA offices will notify eli-
gible CRP participants of their
option to modify and extend their


CRP contracts. The deadline, to
apply for this extension is Sept. 2.
The extension option applies
to CRP participants with contracts
scheduled to expire Sept. 30, and
whose original contract with the
extension will not exceed 15
years. About 7,000 contracts,

nationwide, are affected.
The extension will not change
participants' rental rates. All or a
portion of the acreage under
contract may be included in an
extension, but no new acreage
may be added. Obligations and
responsibilities under the origi-
nal contract continue to apply to
contracts that are modified and


extended. USDA is not planning
to offer a general CRP signup in
fiscal year 2005.
However, producers may con-
tinue to enroll relatively small,
highly-desirable acreage, such as
filter strips and riparian buffers,
in the continuous CRP at. any
time at their local FSA office.
The CRP is a voluntary pro-
gram available to agricultural
producers to help them safe-
guard environmentally sensitive
land. Producers enrolled in CRP
plant long-term, resource-con-
serving covers to improve the
quality of water, control soil ero-
sion, and enhance wildlife habi-


tat. In return, FSA provides partici-
pants with rental payments for 10-
15 years and cost-share assistance
to establish the practice.
Since its inception in 1986,
CRP continues to reduce soil ero-
sion, improve water quality and
wildlife habitat, and sequester
atmospheric carbon in the 35-mil-
lion acres currently enrolled in the
program.
For more information on the
CRP program, contact your local
FSA office or visit the FSA Web site
at:
http://www.fsa.usda.gov/dafp/ce
pd/crp.htm.


Rep. Harris: CAFTA to boost Central American stability


WASHINGTON D.C. U.S.
Rep. Katherine Harris, after meet-
ing with representatives of the
Nicaraguan democracy move-
ment, noted the importance of
free trade for promoting political
stability in the Central American
region and urged her colleagues
to pass the DR-CAFTA trade pact
when it comes before the House.
Harris met with several mem-
bers of "Movimiento Por
Nicaragua" (MPN), a civic move-
ment that seeks to reinforce the
country's democratic institutions,
which are threatened by the
machinations of two former
Nicaraguan presidents, Arnoldo
Aleman and Daniel Ortega, who
are collaborating to strip power
from the executive branch and
from the current president,
Enrique Bola-os.
The MPN members empha-
sized that DR-CAFTA, or the


Dominican Republic-Central
American Free Trade Agreement,
would support their efforts to
strengthen Nicaragua's democrat-
ic political system, arguing that a
strong system of free enterprise
would extend economic opportu-
nity and distribute political power.
"Twenty years ago, the United.
States sent troops and supplies to
support these fledgling democra-
cies, and now we have a second
opportunity to offer them our sup-
port through peaceful and mutu-
ally beneficial trade," Harris said.
"I urge my colleagues to extend
this great opportunity for cooper-
ation to the people of the Central
American region, so that they can
build a stronger and more stable
political culture based on democ-
racy, individual rights, free enter-
prise and the rule of law."
The House vote on DR-CAFTA,
or the Dominican Republic-Cen-


tral America Free Trade Agree-
ment, is expected as early as
Wednesday night.
The agreement would create a
free trade zone between the Unit-
ed States and Costa Rica, El Sal-
vador, Guatemala, Honduras,
Nicaragua and the Dominican
Republic. Harris, a longtime advo-
cate of trade policies to expand
markets for U.S. products, is a
strong supporter of the CAFTA
bill, not only because of the eco-
nomic growth and jobs it would
bring to Florida communities and
the United States, but also
because of the benefits it would
bring to the nation's trading part-
ners in the region.
The Nicaraguan democratic
activists who met with Harris
Wednesday included Nelsoni
Estrada, Rosa Marina Zelaya,'
Rhina Cardenal and Klaus
Stadthagen. Estrada noted the


importance of the DR-CAFTA
agreement for Nicaragua, arguing
that the Marxist politicos in
Nicaragua are opposed to the bill
and to free enterprise because "it
dilutes their power."

The MPN civic movement is
dedicated to strengthening the
rule of law and democracy in
Nicaragua, with the goal of ensur-
ing free, fair and transparent elec-
tions in 2006. Most recently, the
movement organized a march of
more than 100,000 people to
protest the anti-democratic
actions of Aleman and Ortega.
MPN leaders are in Washington,
D.C., this week to meet with,
members of Congress, State
Department officials and non-
governmental organizations to
enlist support for the organiza-
tion's objectives.

Florida employment/unemployment report for June 2005


The state's seasonally adjusted
June 2005 unemployment rate
was 3.9 percent, down from the
revised rate of 4.1 percent in May
and down 0.9 percentage point
from 4.8 percent a year ago. Flori-
da's June 2005 unemployment
rate was the lowest experienced
by the state since December 2000.
Florida's seasonally adjusted
unemployment rate for June 2005
was over a full percentage point
lower than the national rate of 5.0


percent.
In June 2005, seasonally
adjusted nonagricultural employ-
ment grew by 228,100 jobs over
the year, growing at 3.0 percent,
nearly twice the national rate. By
comparison, the national rate of
growth was 1.6 percent for the
same period.
The state continued to see the
rate of Prowth exceed other com-
parable states. Based on data from
May 2005, the latest month for


which comparable data are avail-
able from other states, Florida had
the fastest rate of annual job
growth among the 10 most popu-
lous states.
Solid growth continued in
manufacturing's durable goods
sector, which gained 5,400 jobs
(+2.1 percent) since last June.
Much of the growth in durable
goods was in transportation
equipment manufacturing
(+2,000 jobs, +4.8 percent).


Overall, manufacturing gained
3,200 jobs over the year.
The Orlando MSA led the state
in employment growth (+39,500
jobs, +4.1 percent), followed by
the Miami-Ft. Lauderdale-Miami
Beach MSA Orlando and Tampa-
St. Petersburg-Clearwater MSAs
with over-the-year job growth in
June 2005 of +37,300 jobs and
+32,600 jobs, respectively.
NOTE: There is an unusual
drop in local government employ-


ment in Florida when comparing
June of this year to June 2004. The
reason for this decline is that pub-
lic schools in Broward and Miami-
Dade Counties closed earlier this
year, so the drop in local govern-
ment employment that occurred
in those areas in July in past years
is reflected in the estimates a
month earlier.
Similarly, since schools in
those areas will be back in session
in August rather than September


as they have in the past, there will
be an unusually large over-the-
year increase in August. This is not
considered an economic change
since it is being caused by the shift
-in the school calendar. All other
counties in the state already fol-
low the earlier, opening and clos-
ing schedule, so the seasonal pat-
tern in Broward and Miami-Dade
Counties is now consistent with
other Florida counties.


Crist announces new consumer protection tool


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist announced
the creation of a new tool designed
to provide consumers with imme-
diate updates on fraud protection
measures. Through the new Con-
sumer Alerts service, citizens can
subscribe to an electronic notifica-
tion network and receive fraud
warnings directly as they are
announced.
"In a world of rapidly changing
technology, criminals are constant-
ly coming up with new ways to pull


off old scams," said Crist. "This
new service lets us fight fire with
fire by using the latest in technolo-
gy tohelp consumers stay fully
informed on .threats to their finan-
cial well being."
By subscribing to the Consumer
Alerts service, citizens add their e-
mail address to a list of individuals
who will receive instantaneous
notification whenever the Attorney
General's Office issues a warning
or notice to consumers. Consumer
notices are also posted to the attor-


ney general's Web site, but prior to
the introduction of the new service
were not otherwise delivered
directly to consumers.
Citizens may subscribe to Con-
sumer Alerts by visiting the attor-
ney general's Web site at
http://myfloridalegal.com and
clicking on the.red "Subscribe to
the Attorney General's Electronic
Newsletter and. Consumer
Updates" link at the top of the
page. That link also offers the
opportunity for citizens to sign up


for other subscription services
available to the public, including
the attorney general's weeldy elec-
tronic newsletter news briefs and
the semi-monthly consumer news
publication Consumer Bulletin.
The Consumer Alerts service is
the latest addition to anti-fraud activi-
ties by the Attorney General's Office:
Since January 2003, the office has
operated a toll-free fraud hotline at 1-
866-NO-SCAM (1-866-966-7226),
which to date has handled more.
than 148,000 consumer calls.


Prescription drug settlements to deliver widespread relief


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist announced
that more than $2.5 million in
checks are now on their way to
Florida consumers and public
agencies from two prescription
drug settlements reached by his
office. More than 5,600 individual
Floridians who overpaid for the
common heart medication
Caridzem CD should begin receiv-
ing their checks.
The checks mailed to con-
sumers come as part of the
Cardizem CD settlement, reached
in January 2003 to resolve antitrust
claims against Aventis Pharmaceu-
ticals, Inc., Andrx Corporation and


affiliated entities.
Florida consumers who previ-
ously submitted valid claims will
share $1.95 million in restitution to
cover amounts they overpaid for
the medication. The settlement
represents the third highest con-
sumer recovery ever among Flori-
da pharmaceutical antitrust cases'
in which restitution has been made
to consumers. Based on the num-
ber of claims,received from resi-
,dents, Florida will receive more for
consumer restitution than any
other state.
"Obviously, when Floridians are
able to get back money they over-
paid for necessary medical care, it's a


good day in the state of Florida," said
Crist. "These settlements will help us
keep our citizens in good health
while easing undue financial stress."
A separate settlement, involving
the anti-inflammatory drug Relafen,
was reached in February between
the Attorney General's Office and
SmithKline Beecham Corporation
and SmithKline Beecham, Plc. The
settlement resolved allegations that
public entities overpaid for medica-
tions because SmithKline's conduct
prevented a low-priced generic
equivalent of Relafen from being
available.
Florida taxpayers will recover
$597,000 to make up for over-


charges paid by the state's Medic-
aid program and other state and
local public health entities.
Attorney General Crist has also
filed a claim for more than
$480,000 from a private class action
settlement to reimburse the state
for purchases it made on behalf of
government employees. Attorney
General's Offices in Florida, Mary-
land and New York negotiated the
settlement on behalf of all 50 states,
as well as the District of Columbia
and U.S. territories.
Since 2003, the Attorney Gener-
al's Antitrust Division has produced
close to $37 million in recoveries in
antitrust lawsuits.


Businesses should be

wary of out-of-state

compliance notices


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist issued a
warning to Florida consumers,
particularly business owners,
alerting them to a new trend in
deceptive marketing practices.
Some out-of-state companies
have recently targeted Florida
businesses in a bid to sell servic-
es purportedly designed to help
them comply with legal require-
ments in Florida. These services,
which often are offered in offi-
cial-looking solicitations, are
often unnecessary or can be
completed for free elsewhere.
"The most important thing
for Florida consumers is to be
aware that these scams exist,"
said Crist. "These companies
masquerade as government
agencies to deceive Florida busi-
nesses that wish to comply with
the law. Anyone receiving these
demands should report them
immediately."
Over the past several months,
the Attorney General's Office has
received, numerous complaints


against several of these compa-
nies. Last week the attorney gen-
eral settled a lawsuit against one
such company, Corporate Com-
pliance Center, over allegations
that the company misled Florida
businesses relating to the sale of
corporate minutes reports. Two
other companies, Corporate
Minutes Compliance Service
and Corporate Minute Services,
were prevented from operating
in Florida when the Attorney
General's Office threatened liti-
gation.
Crist advised consumers to
examine all notices carefully,
especially those that come from
outside the state and offer fee-
based services to comply with
Florida laws. Businesses and
individual consumers are
advised to check with the Florida
Department of State if they sus-
pect a notice they received is not
from official sources. The attor-
ney general's Fraud Hotline is 1-
866-9-NO-SCAM (1-866-966-
7226).

Senator blasts FEMA for denying residents help


WASHINGTON, D.C. Pan-
handle residents wrongly are being
denied federal disaster assistance
for certain expenses they incurred
in preparation for Hurricane Den-
nis, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson charged in
a letter to the nation's top disaster
management official.
In the wake of hurricanes and
other disasters, the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency
(FEMA) generally reimburses resi-
dents for purchases of certain
items like, generators, dehumid-
ifiers, heating fuel and chain saws
- made up to several days in
advance of an incident. That's what
FEMA did for the four hurricanes


that hit Florida last year.
But in the case of Hurricane
Dennis, which struck the Panhan-
dle July 10, residents now are being
told by FEMA that such storm-
preparation expenditures will not
be covered.
'"As things stand now, you are
punishing people for taking steps
necessary to protect their lives or
property," Nelson said in his July 21
letter to FEMA chief Mike Brown.
Nelson asked Brown to make
federal assistance available to Pan-
handle residents for qualifying
items they bought a day or two
before the storm. Because the state
response actually began three days


before Dennis, and because the
storm was preceded by high
winds, torrential rains and torna-
does, residents who went to the
expense of preparing themselves
should not be punished, Nelson
said.
Nelson noted FEMA has extend-
ed its so-called "incident period"
for covering such expenses in the
past. For instance, the agency
extended coverage from one to five
days following severe weather and
flooding in Wisconsin in Septem-
ber 2002.
For Hurricane Charley in August
of last year, FEMA covered resi-
dents' authorized storm-related


expenses two days before the
storm. For Hurricane Frances three
weeks later, FEMA allowed one day
before the storm in which to pur-
chase such things. For Hurricane
Ivan in mid-September, FEMA cov-
ered expenses for up to three days
beforehand. For Hurricane Jeanne
in late September, FEMA paid for
certain uninsured and unmet
needs made two days before the
storm.
But for Dennis, the agency says
it will pay for expenses beginning ,
the day of the storm.
"I feel that the action of FEMA is
causing a lot of undue stress to citi-
zens in Santa Rosa County," a Mil-


Florida officials to lobby military


NEW ORLEANS U.S. Sen.
Bill Nelson will join a delegation of
federal, state and local officials
from Florida scheduled to testify
before the Base Realignment and
Closure Commission in New
Orleans. Although the Depart-
ment of Defense (DOD) recom-
mended no Florida bases be
closed, the delegation will ask
commission members to reject
DOD recommendations that
adversely impact a few Florida
military bases.
The Defense Department has
recommended relocating naval
training and education headquar-
ters at Pensacola Naval Air Station
and ordinance testing activities at
Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
Nelson will ask the commis-
sion to endorse efforts to make
upgrades to Mayport Naval Statibn
in Jacksonville that will enable the
base to house a nuclear powered
aircraft carrier.
Besides Nelson, the so-called
BRAC panel also will hear from
Sen. Mel Martinez and Gov. Jeb


Bush.
Senator Bill Nelson statement:
Base Realignment and closure
commission
Mr. Chairman and members of
the Commission, I am grateful for
this opportunity to address the
Commission and share my views
on the Department's recommen-
dations regarding military bases
and activities in the state of Flori-
da.
We are convinced that on bal-
ance the Department's recom-
mendations provide ample evi-
dence of its profound and
complete endorsement of the cur-
rent and future military value of
Florida's bases, activities, and our
extensive training and testing air,
land and sea ranges.
Despite this confirmation of
Florida's exceptional contribution
to national security, we share the
Commission's view, as indicated
in Chairman Prinicpi's letter to
Secretary Rumsfeld, that the
Department's recommendations,
in some cases, may be technically


flawed, short-sighted, illogical or
perhaps unnecessarily cautious.
.Florida's testimony today high-
lights for you all these shortcom-
ings.
For example, the Navy is now
unequivocal and on the record.
The nation needs two aircraft car-
rier ports on the east coast. We
have two carrier ports now, but
only one is nuclear capable. It is
inevitable that the Navy will estab-
lish the required nuclear aircraft
carrier capability at Naval Station
Mayport. We should do it sooner
rather than later, and we urge the
Commission to include this in its
recommendations.
Also, as you have heard, the
Department's recommendation to
move the Naval Ordnance Test
Unit off of Cape Canaveral Air
Force Station and the Eastern
Range appears to have been
made without consideration of its
"on site" mission or the econom-
ics of its current and future con-
tractor-support situation. We urge
the Commission to reverse this in


its recommendations.

ton woman wrote Nelson in a July
20 letter, after FEMA denied her
claim for reimbursement on a gen-
erator. "Last'year I was without
power and a generator for eleven
days. Therefore I purchased a gen-
erator two days before (Dennis).
"We are working class people
who don't have the money to just
go out and purchase these items,
but my understanding was that we
would be reimbursed," she wrote,
"Please help us recover our
losses."
A Pensacola woman, who also
was a Dennis victim, wrote Nelson
too, saying: "FEMA made the deci-
sion to reimburse for the purchase


of a generator only if the purchase
was made on the day of the hurri-
cane (July 10, 2005) or after that
date. This is totally unfair. What
were people supposed to do?
There were no generators in Pen-
sacola before the date of the hurri-
cane.
"My husband purchased our
generator in Georgia, because I
tried to locate one in Pensacola and
could not. The people who are
being shafted by FEMA need to
stand up for themselves and
appeal to any government officials
who is willing to speak for the peo-
ple of this country."

Florida Kids count responds to national. calls to action for unemployed parents


A report released by the Annie
E. Casey Foundation. reveals that
the number of children living with
unemployed parents has
increased from three million to
four million since 2000.
According to the 16th annual
KIDS COUNT Data Book, unem-
ployed parents are often faced
with issues that make connecting
to the workforce especially diffi-


cult domestic violence, depres-
sion, substance abuse, and prior
.incarceration. The Annie E. Casey
Foundation KIDS COUNT project
is a national and state-by-state
effort to compile the best avail-
able data to describe the educa-
tional, social, economic and phys-
ical well being of the nation's
children.
KIDS COUNT seeks to enrich


local, state, and national discus-
sions concerning ways to secure
better futures for all children by
providing policymakers and citi-
zens with benchmarks of child
well being. This year's report
shows that in 2003, approximately
168,000 children in Florida lived in
low-income households where no
adult worked in the past year,
accounting for four percent of


Florida's total child population.
The report also found an
increased rate of children in single
parent households.
In 2003, 36 percent of Florida's
children lived in households led
by a single parent, compared to 35
percent in 2000. This year's data
book reveals a critical need for
state and local leaders to build
.support for vulnerable parents in a


more systematic, comprehensive,
and integrated way. The 2005 Data
Book's essay highlights public and
private initiatives around the
country that address the needs of
America's most- persistently
unemployed families.
The Department of Child &
Family Studies and the USF Louis
de la Parte Florida Mental Health
Institute are involved in a number


of initiatives with the same goals.
Information on those initiatives
and contact information can be
found at:
http://cscf.fmhi.usf.edu/flkc/fmhi
