Wilma brings devastation


At least 94
homes destroyed
By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON Hurricane
Wilma made an early Monday
morning approach to South
Florida, making landfall just
south of Naples, and blasting
northeast directly through
Clewiston, as the devastating
eye wall battered the city for a
total of 43 minutes, and with


the devastating winds lasting
more than eight hours.
Many residents evacuated,
hundreds were housed in emer-
gency shelters, and many more
weathered the storm in their
homes. It has been reported by
the state of Florida's Urban
Search and Rescue (USAR)
response task force that at least
94 homes were destroyed in
and among the adjacent areas
'of Clewiston.
Immediately following the


storm, the USAR began search
and rescue efforts to provide
emergency care services and to
asses storm damage, and was
able to confirm on Tuesday
morning that no major injuries
or deaths had been reported,
and that 94 homes had suffered
moderate to high levels of dam-
age.
According to USAR Deputy
IC Response Commander
Lorien Mock, the storm caused
multiple down-blasts and possi-


ble tornadoes to the area,
which was shaken from the
early morning hours until
approximately 2 p.m. when
emergency crews were able to
begin recovery efforts.
"The USAR crews have fin-
ished assessing the Clewiston
area, and will search the outly-
ing areas within Hendry and
Glades Counties in the next few
days," said Mock. "Fortunately,
there have been no casualties
to report," he said. Early reports


Aftermath: Wilma's path


INI/Mark Young
Clewiston was one of the hardest hit areas in the state following Hurricane Wilma's arrival to South Florida. Clewis-
ton suffered plenty of wind damage, but was also drenched by torrential rains. :


Hurricane Wilma ripped the skin right off of downtown
businesses.


Deoris tell on top of parKed vehicles, as residents triea
to figure out the safest place to park against a hurri-
cane coming in from the west coast.


It took hundreds of years
to grow, but it only took
the strength of Hurricane
Wilma to bring it down as
this once proud giant
took up new residence in
the middle of the road.

from Florida officials estimated
six deaths related to Hurricane
Wilma throughout Florida.
Rumors were rampant ol
wanton violence and looting
and an imposed martial law, all
of which did not happen,
according to Chief Don Gutshall

ment. "We had one incident

Officials


assess


damage

By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON Lieutenant
Governor Toni Jennings arrived in
Clewiston Tuesday afternoon to
survey storm damage from Hurri-
cane Wilma and brief city and
county officials as to the short-and
long-term efforts by the state of
Florida during recovery efforts in
the coming months.
The Lt. Governor arrived by
helicopter with the U.S. Army
National Guard to meet with city
and county officials at the city's
utilities building, which is operat-
ing with electricity by generator
power. Also attending was Repre-
sentative Mark Foley, who
announced plans for recovery
funding and food aid for Glades
area residents.
Lt. Governor Jennings was
able to survey the damage in
Clewiston from aerial views from
the helicopter.
"I saw a very large number of
instances of roof damage, as well
as a lot of signs of flooding. There
seems to be much more damage
in this area than the other areas I
was able to see so far," said Lt.
Governor Jennings.
According to Lt Governor Jen-
nings, the most pressing need for
the people is that of food supply
to those who lost food in the
storm, and are in need of financial
support for food and supplies.
"We are awaiting federal
authorization to begin the distri-
bution of temporary food stamps,
which I should hear back for
within a day or two," said Lt. Gov-
ernor Jennings. "I expect that the
food stamps should be available
for distribution, possibly as early
as Thursday," she said.
Lt. Governor Jennings was
briefed by Hendry County Com-
missioner and Clewiston Utilities
Director Kevin McCarthy, who has
been on constant patrol for
power restoration efforts.
"The utilities department has
been all over town assessing the
damage, and finding out what we
need to do to get power up and
running, and at this point there is
an estimate of approximately one
to two weeks before power will
be fully restored," he said.
Despite major flooding in the
downtown area and throughout
all residential areas, as well as

Glades area was prepared


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON Even four
named storms roaring through
the South Florida area in 2004
did not cause quite the stir
Wilma has since her initial pro-
jected path was released via
broadband Internet and 24-
hour telecasts declared South
Florida as the prime target of
the most powerful hurricane in
recorded history.
None of the storms of the
now-infamous 2004 hurricane
season were quite as surprising
or teasing as Wilma, who intro-
duced herself as a "tropical
storm" on a slow, sleepy Tues-
day afternoon.
Segue to Wednesday, Oct.
19, when residents were


shocked to hear that Wilma
was a category five hurricane
with a projected path drawn to
meander down U.S. 27 from
Moore Haven to Clewiston,
then continue to Belle Glade
and make a timely, welcome
exit over the eastern Florida
coast sometime late Monday
afternoon.
Yes, not only was this hurri-
cane the strongest and most
powerful storm on record, but
renowned and venerated fore-
casters like Max Mayfield pre-
dicted that the storm was to
make a slightly less-than-wel-
come stopover in the South.
Lake region, which would end
up feeling more like an unso-
licited hit and run attack when


the deadly wind and rains rip
through the area.
So, one must react. Of
course, the surrounding region
was very recently argued to
have been prone to extensive
flooding in the event of a Cate-
gory III-V event, which Wilma
promised to flirt with during her
sojourn to southern Florida.
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
promised that the Herbert
Hoover Dike had been closely
examined and was proven to
withstand any type of hurricane
available, from any category
allowable by Saffir-Simpson et
al., etc.
Evacuation was certainly a

Short and simple
A short and simple message awaits Hurricane Wilma's
arrival to Clewiston. "Pray" says it all and while Wilma
devastated structures, no fatalities have been reported.

Purchasing an Indian River
Lagoon specialty license plate
for your vehicle does much
more than just paying a registra-
tion fee. You are helping to
restore a 156-mile-long water-
way by contributing to local
environmental protection and
restoration efforts for the
Lagoon.
The Indian River Lagoon
license plate was the 16th most
popular of the state's 91 author-
ized plates last year. Four million
dollars has been raised from the
sale of the plate since it's incep-
tion in 1996.
Fifteen dollars from the sale
of each lagoon license plate are
combined with funding from
other sources and used to
restore and protect the lagoon,
which is considered the most
diverse estuary in North Ameri-
ca. No administrative salaries or
studies are paid from license
plate revenue. The Florida
Department of Transportation
collects the license fees then
makes it available to the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict, which provides funding to
qualified applicants.
This year, three Martin Coun-
ty projects totaling $74,975 were
selected by the District. These
projects include native plantings

Hospital volunteers help furnish lobby


Check out local happenings at
www.newszap.com


CLEWISTON Furniture that
was purchased for the Hendry
County Regional Medical Center
lobby by the H.R.M.C. Auxiliary
was made possible by the hard-
working volunteers within the
hospital. The auxiliary has sup-
plied various items for H.R.M.C.
including medical and surgical
equipment. The volunteers pro-
vide their time and energy to the
hospital and perform a variety of
duties.
But their central activity
revolves around the gift shop, a
small store within the hospital
that offers several different pick-
me-up shopping opportunities for
those currently in the hospital for
various reasons. The gift shop is
run .by the volunteers and the pro-
ceeds from the shop go back into
the hospital to purchase items
normally outside of the range of
the hospital's normal budget.
This includes the new lobby
furniture and other items the vol-
unteers feel the hospital needs in
terms of small updates.
The auxiliary of Hendry
Regional Medical Center consists
of approximately 10 volunteers
who provide their services as fre-
quently as their schedules will
allow. These dedicated women,
recognized primarily by their pink
smocks, work behind the scenes

.rotate through to thank the volun-
teers for their hard work and con-
tributions. During the tea, the
ladies are also provided with gifts
in token of the hospital's appreci-
ation.
Although they are located
most often in the gift shop, the
auxiliary has offered their assis-


tance in other departments as
well. They may be seen folding
towels; offering directions, or
making copies. The auxiliary uses
proceeds from the gift shop to
make purchases for the hospital.
In prior years, purchases have
included surgical blood pressure
monitors and bed-chairs for fami-
ly members. If you visit the hospi-
tal lobby, you can admire their
most recent purchases the
beautiful, new furniture, lamps


and other amenities.
"These volunteers represent
our hospital in the most cheerful,
helpful and friendliest manner,
said HRMC Director of Human
Resources, Rodney Larson.
"Patients, visitors, hospital per-
sonnel, and other volunteers are
treated with courtesy and respect
all times. The auxiliary is truly an
asset to Hendry Regional Medical
Center. Thank you Ladies Auxil-
iary!"

When the chips are down,


the Buffalo is empty


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
There's nothing like stepping in
a warm cow pie to realize that
some life experiences really stink.
Super-size it
and you have a
buffalo chip
experience.
There's a
story of a little
bird that got
caught in a
freeze and
couldn't fly. He
was about to John
freeze to death Hicks
on the ground Hicks
when a buffalo
came by and dropped a big pie
right on him.
I don't know about you, but I
can relate to that experience.
Things are going rough and just
when I think things can't get any
worse plop a big stinky situa-
tion is dropped on me.
I would like to say that God
makes life easy for all those who
love Him, but it simply is not true.
Life happens. And sometimes life
can be terribly, terribly difficult -
even for those who love Jesus.
Most of the time we take life for
granted and view it as a given. And
within life there are cow pie and
buffalo chip experiences. For many
it's not so much that we "have life
to live" as that "we have to live life."
But let's get back to the little
bird. Covered with the steaming
buffalo chip up to his neck, he
began to warm up. Feeling a lot bet-
ter, the bird began to shift around,
and then burst out in song. A pass-
ing fox happened to hear him and
plucked him out of the pile.
The moral of this little tale is that
being dumped on isn't necessarily
a bad thing, and being pulled out of


a situation isn't always the best
thing for us.
Sometimes we will go through a
difficult experience and it will make
us stronger. Often we'll have a new
appreciation for our family and
friends. More often than not, we'll
grow to rely on the promises of
God. Jesus has told us, "In this
world you will have trouble. But
take heart! I have overcome the
world." (John 16:33)
We cannot know all of God's
plan and purpose, but this we can
know: Life is hard, but God is good,
because life with God is filled with
promise, and in Him we have a
Friend who is able to help us be
more than conquerors in life's situ-
ations. (Romans 8:37-38)
So, what are we to do when we
step in life's cow pies or get
dumped on? We are to go on. We
are to do what we can do. We pick
up the pieces and go forward the
best we can, trusting that God, fam-
ily, and friends will help us through
it all. We take inventory and realize
anew the really important things
and people in our life and embrace
them. We turn to God and trust in
His providence.
I can relate well to this anony-
mous quote: "I asked God for
strength that I might achieve; I was
made weak that I might learn
humbly to obey. I asked for health
that I might do great things; I was
given infirmity that I might do better
things. I asked for riches that I might
be happy; I was given poverty that I
might be wise. I asked for all things
that I.might enjoy life; I was given
life that I might enjoy all things. I got
nothing that I asked for but every-
thing I had hoped for. Despite
myself, my prayers were answered.
I am, among all people, most richly
blessed."
Be most richly blessed.

Q: Dear Doc Savvy. I am a new
cat owner, and I am very surprised
to see that my cat Kujo seems to
sleep an awful lot. Does this mean
there is something wrong with
him? Do I need to take him to the
vet? James K. in Belle Glade.
A: Hello James K! That is a
great question. A domesticated,
well cared for cat with little to
worry about can sleep 15 to possi-
bly 18 hours a day. This can be
very normal indeed. However if
you think that Kujo is not feeling
well, certainly take him to your
veterinarian for a check up. This
way you can be sure, and not have
any worries yourself. Take care
James K and best wishes, Doc
Savvy.
Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Hello Doc,
my name is Carlos. I have a new
Pit-bull puppy, and I was told I
needed to have his ears trimmed.
Is it something I have to do?
A: Carlos, I am so happy you
asked that question! No, it is NOT
something you have to, need to,
or are supposed to do at all! Trim-
ming or cutting ears for certain
breeds is an old fashioned cos-
metic thing that at one time was
considered the thing to do. Today
it is something that is frowned
upon. Also it is against the law to
perform this surgery in the United


Doc Savvy
Kingdom and Canada. Legislation
to make this procedure illegal in
the United States is expected
sometime in 2006. So in other
words, Carlos, save your money! It
is a costly and painful experience
for both dog and owner. Use
those funds to make sure your
puppy is fully vaccinated and pro-
tected against disease instead.
Hope that helps Carlos! Take care,
Doc Savvy.

Nelson urges defense to stop hounding troops


WASHINGTON, D.C. The
Pentagon is using collection
agencies to hound combat-
wounded soldiers, sailors, air-
men and Marines to pay for their
helmets and other equipment
lost in battle. And some of these
service members have had their
finances blackened by negative
reports to credit bureaus. ,
Still other wounded troops
have found themselves in debt
to Uncle Sam and besieged
by bill collectors, as well -
because the Pentagon's com-
puterized pay system routinely
makes mistakes in figuring pay-
checks.
But the controversial practice
of sending private collection
agencies after the combat
wounded could end soon if
Defense Secretary Donald
Rumsfeld heeds the request of at
least one U.S. senator on the
Armed Services Committee.
"I urge you to immediately
suspend, all collection efforts,
directed at wounded service
-members whether still on active
duty or released to the care of
the veterans' health system,"
Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL )
wrote in a letter to Rumsfeld this
week. "Until- we achieve an
acceptable standard of accuracy
and reliability in the-systems for
administering service members'
debts, the (defense) Depart-
ment cannot justify using collec-
tion agencies or filing negative
credit reports against our
wounded soldiers, sailors, air-


men or-Marines."
Because of the wars in
Afghanistan and Iraq, there are
more wounded troops coming
home than at any time since the
Vietnam War in the late 1960s
and early 1970s. Although the
Pentagon can't pinpoint the full
number of wounded active-duty'
troops with debts, an Army offi-
cial recently told the Washing-
ton Post it had identified 331 sol-
diers who have been hit with
military debt after being wound-
edatwwar a
In a detailed report on the
problem last week, the. Post
cited the' case of one soldier
whose hand had been blown off
in Iraq and his body pierced by
shrapnel. He flew home for a
long and intensely painful recov-
ery at Walter Reed Army Medical.
Center.
But nine months after he was
wounded, the Army garnished
his wages because it said he
owed them $6,200; and, a col-
lection agency went after him
for another $646 for military
housing, the Post said.
Last Spring, such pay-and-
debt problems across the mili-
tary branches came under
scrutiny from a U.S. House com-
mittee, which asked the Govern-
ment Accountability Office -
the investigative arm of Con-
gress to conduct a thorough
review.
In July of 2004, the GAO
reported that 95 percent of Army
Reserve soldiers experienced'


pay problems. Some pay issues
took as long as a year to com-
pletely resolve. Of the 348 sol-
diers participating in the study,
256 received overpayments -
and thus were in debt, another
294 received underpayments,
and 285 received late payments
of active duty pay and
allowances. In February of 2005,
the GAO found that 63 percent
of soldiers participating in a case
study experienced problems
with the active duty medical
extensions process, causing
them to lose their active duty
pay without-cause.
As a result of Pentagon
errors, military service mem-
bers are being forced into debt
through no fault of their own,
Nelson said, citing an illustrative
complaint his own office
received. One particular con-
stituent from Ocala, Florida has
experienced pay problems asso-.
*ciated with two deployments in
Iraq as a military police officer,
and still is struggling to sort out
a mess that originally began in
early 2003.
Although payment mistakes
were made by the Pentagon, the
man was expected to repay the
military for a $2,249.51 overpay-
ment including $562.12 he
never received because it was
withheld for federal taxes.
The outdated military-pay
system has deeply affected this
soldier's ability to provide
necessities for his wife and chil-
dren, Nelson said; and, adding

insult to injury the defense
department last month denied
an appeal on the man's behalf
-by Nelson's office. ,
Nelsoil said the Pentagon
using collection agencies poses
a particular hardship for combat
wounded troops and their fami-
lies. Calling the dogs off these
troops is a starting point, he
said, adding that the Pentagon
also needs to understand the
hardships its flawed pay system
causes other service members
and to explore appropriate
relief.

Hurricanes not a problem for Tigers in their 54-6 win


By Bill Fabian
CANE FIELD The usually
jovial and electric feel of a Clewis-
ton Tigers home game was one of
the earliest, distant changes
affected by Hurricane Wilma,
even as the giant storm churned
hundreds of miles away in the
Western Caribbean.
Instead of a relaxed roar of
support for the home team, the
Tigers took the field to the sound
of heightened anticipation and
apprehension, as the city of
Clewiston and the rest of South
Florida began preparations for the
approach of yet another hurri-
cane.
In a meeting previously
rescheduled from a Friday game
in Riviera Beach to a Thursday
night (before Hurricane Wilma),
the Tigers stayed home to host the
Hurricanes of Inlet Grove Com-
munity High School. Though the
game was held in Clewiston, the
proceeds of the gate fees were
given to Inlet Grove, which shares

a field with other organizations
and could not host the game due
to a conflict in field scheduling.
The crucial advantage ofhome
turf was greatly beneficial to the
Tigers in their third district match-
up, and became a shot in the arm
for the boys of Clewiston, who
scored a season high 54 points
against Inlet Grove. The Hurri-
canes were held scoreless until
seconds remained in the game.
The Tigers got off to a blazing
start with a 40-yard touchdown
run by Carl Whitehead, who
broke a tackle while sweeping to
the right and was off to the races
for the score on the opening drive.
Freshman kicker and backup
quarterback Isandro Marques
provided the extra point.
Most of the Hurricanes' first
offensive drives of the first half
ended in punt attempts, and two
of those attempts were busted by
bad snaps resulting in great field
position for the Tigers.

Melton absolutely shined in his
second start as Clewiston's num-
ber one passer, starting Thursday
night with a well-executed drive
that resulted in a 35-yard touch-
down pass to Jasper Hunter wait-
ing in the end zone.
Marques added the extra
point, and at the end of the first
quarter, the Tigers found them-
selves on top 14-0.
The second quarter featured a
Tiger offense that appeared ready
to score at any cost. The Tigers
went up 28-0 after two consecu-
tive touchdowns by senior run-
ning back Richard Pope, who at
first capitalized on an Inlet Grove
fumble that gave the Tigers the
ball deep into Hurricanes territo-
ry, and Pope ran ten yards in for
the score. He then found pay dirt
once again with a 20-yard run
midway through the second quar-
ter. The kick by freshman Mar-
ques made the score 28-0.
The wild series of events lead-
ing up to that point gave way for a

defensive show ignited by defen-
sive end Delvin Hughes, who
blasted through the Hurricanes
offensive front to pressure the
quarterback. Hughes batted the
ball high into the air, intercepted
the ball, and ran untouched into
the end zone.
The Tigers ended the first half'
with a ten yard score by Colin
Ricketts to make the score 41-0.
In the third quarter, the Tigers
continued their domination of the
Hurricanes on both offensive and
defensive efforts. Freshman quar-
terback Isandro Marques gained
some vital experience as the
newly promoted backup on the
varsity squad.
The Tigers continued running
the ball, and Delvin Hughes ran in
for another score in the third
quarter. In the fourth quarter, Tan-
ner Wells closed the door on the

run.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month J

















It is estimated that 13,430 Florida women will
be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.
When breast cancer is detected early and treated promptly, .urffcring ajiid ultimately the loss
of life can be significantly reduced. Mammography (an x-ray picture of the breast) is
the single most effective method to detect breast changes that may be cancer, long
before physical symnptomnis can be seen orfelt.This is why, in recognition of Breast Cancer
Awareness Month, Glades General Hospital is offering Mammograms for a
special discounted rate of $60 throughout the month of October.


For further information or to schedule
your mammogram please call, 561-996-6571, ext. 460.
Patient must pay cash, check or charge at the time of maminogram.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


Water pollution program starts locally


Edward L. Ayen has been
appointed to introduce the Flori-
da Yards & Neighborhoods
(FY&N) program in the Okee-
chobee region, which includes
Highlands, Okeechobee and
Glades counties.
The Okeechobee region is
faced with a growing number of
problems with regard to lake and
ground water quality and natural
resource degradation. The FY&N
program will initiate programs


that will educate participants as
to the importance of natural
resource protection through
responsible lawn management.
The core FY&N programs will
target homeowners, garden cen-
ter personnel and landscape pro-
fessionals, with recruitment of
neighborhoods, yards and busi-
nesses. This will be accom-
plished by distribution of infor-
mation, training and utilization of
volunteer groups and a yard cer-


tification program.
Organizations cooperating
with the FY&N program are: Uni-
versity of Florida (OF) Depart-
ment of Environmental Horticul-
ture, UF Cooperative Extension
Service, county and municipal
governments, Florida Lake-
watch, Water Management Dis-
tricts, UF multi-county Sea Grant
Program, and public utility com-
panies within the three county
area.


Manatees may be removed from ES Act

Introducing the DemlDoseTM Pill Splitter


DEVMIDOSET
I L L S=L I T rT E


As if the passage of Congress-
man Richard Pombo's bill virtual-
ly gutting the federal Endangered
Species Act (ESA) wasn't bad
enough, it also included a poorly
drafted, and hastily written
amendment spearheaded by
Florida's Congressional member
Adam Putnam to exclude the
endangered manatee from pro-
tections under the Marine Mam-
mal Protection Act (MMPA).
Conservationists are alarmed,
as the last minute amendment
provided no opportunity for pub-
lic testimony. They say the
amendment was evidently
designed to strip manatees of crit-
ical protections that were vital to
the recent adoption of federal
sanctuaries and refuges in areas
of historically high manatee mor-
tality and injury.
Under Putnam's amendment,
if the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
(Service) performs an ESA con-
sultation with a federal permit-
ting agency on dock building
projects that could affect mana-
tees, the consultation will be con-
sidered the equivalent of an
MMPA incidental take authoriza-
tion and will allow projects that
would likely hurt or kill manatees
to move forward.
The MMPA extends additional
protections beyond the ESA to
endangered marine mammals to
assist in their recovery to sustain-
able populations. Specifically,
Putnam's amendment means
that any individual dock permit
can only be denied if that particu-
lar dock would jeopardize the
entire population of manatees,


even though the dock's construc-
tion and subsequent use by boats
would likely lead to more mana-
tees being killed or injured by
boat collisions.
Conservationists say the intro-
duction and passage of Repre-
sentative Putnam's amendment
is a blatant attack on manatees -
especially since boat strikes con-
tinue to be the largest known
cause of manatee deaths in Flori-
da.
"More docks are being built in
Florida than at any time I can
remember and very few dock
permits have been denied. Even
so, Putnam has been working
with the Florida Marine Contrac-
tor's Association (FMCA) to elim-
inate protections for manatees
afforded them under the existing
MMPA," said Patrick Rose, mana-
tee expert and director of Govern-
ment Relations for Save the Man-
atee Club. "FMCA filed a lawsuit
last year against the Service alleg-
ing that the MMPA did not apply
to Florida's inland waters. They
wanted to get their permits to
build docks and marinas without
having to worry about how many
manatees their boating activities
would kill, so long as each indi-
vidual dock would not cause the
manatee to go extinct."
Earlier this year, the judge in
FMCA's case ruled that the MMPA
did, indeed, apply to the inland
waters of Florida. The conserva-
tion community expressed aston-
ishment that President Bush's
Department of the Interior
argued the MMPA should protect
manatees in Florida waters dur-


ing the court case, but then did a
complete about face and sup-
ported Putnam's legislative
amendment.
With development profits sky-
rocketing from waterfront prop-
erty sales in recent years, the bat-
tle to protect the manatee versus
developing what's left of Florida's
coastline has heated up. In some
cases, individual docks built over
public lands have been sold/con-
veyed for over $1 million. Devel-
opers and the marine industries
are anxious to ensure manatees
don't get in the way of their mod-
ern-day gold rush.
According to environmental
attorney, Eric Glitzenstein, of
Meyer Glitzenstein and Crystal in
Washington D.C., "Presently
under MMPA regulations, the Ser-
vice cannot authorize the 'taking'
of manatees from dock building
and boating activities and there-
fore proposed projects must
either be modified to include
conservation measures or in
extreme cases even denied, if
there is a reasonable assurance
that manatees will be killed or
injured. The practical effect of the
Putnam amendment is a legal
sanction to actually injure or kill a
manatee during dock building or
associated boating activities."
With the House of Represen-
tatives' passage of the Pombo bill
that repeals protections for
endangered species criti-
cal habitat, and the removal of
manatees from the protections of
the MMPA, the future prospects
for recovery of the manatee look
grim.


Harris urges mortgage deduction limit


WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S.
Representative Katherine Harris
(R-Fla.) voiced her opposition to a
proposed recommendation to
limit mortgage interest tax deduc-
tions. According to recent press
accounts, the President's Adviso-
ry Panel on Federal Tax Reform is
considering a recommendation
to cap the mortgage interest tax
deduction at $300,000.
Harris and Representative
Steve Israel (D-N.Y.) are leading a
bipartisan effort to urge the Presi-
dent's Tax Reform Panel to recon-
sider a proposed recommenda-
tion to limit mortgage deductions.
Harris and Israel are working to
garner support among members
of Congress and plan to send a let-
ter to the Advisory Panel.
"While I commend the Presi-
dent's bold effort to examine
avenues for tax reform, I oppose
efforts that would discourage
homeownership and stifle eco-
nomic growth. Therefore, I urge
the panel to reconsider proposed
recommendations to limit the
mortgage interest deduction,"
said Harris.
Currently 37 million taxpayers
benefit from the mortgage inter-


est deduction, saving families $70
billion annually. Additionally, the
President's projections to create
5.5 million new homeowners by
the end of the decade would
inject $256 billion into our econo-
my. The creation of new home-
owners magnifies housing con-
struction and helps many small
businesses grow.
"Savings from mortgage
deductions are essential to many
families especially those in the
first years of a new mortgage,"
Harris stated.
According to the Florida Asso-
ciation of Realtors, the median
home price for the Sarasota-
Bradenton area, which Congress-
woman Harris represents, has
increased 34 percent in one year
to $347,400.
The letter, which will be sent to
the President's Advisory Panel on
Federal Tax Reform, states:
"Since the enactment of the
federal tax code in 1913, one of
the most powerful incentives for
expansion and preservation of
homeownership has been the
deductibility of mortgage interest.
"We encourage you to consid-
er'other options that do not ham-


per the ability of our constituents
to achieve the American dream,
which would bring about numer-
ous negative social and economic
ramifications."
Congresswoman Harris has
worked tirelessly to make the
American dream a reality for all
Americans, according to the Con-
gresswoman's press agent. Harris
authored the American Dream
Down payment Act, which was
signed into law in 2003. The
American Dream; Down payment
Act helps approximately 40,000
families each year make home-
ownership a reality by assisting
with down payment and closing
costs while educating buyers
through the purchasing process.
Earlier this year Harris spon-
sored an amendment that suc-
cessfully restored $60 million in
funding to the HOPE VI grant pro-
gram. Additionally, Harris has
sponsored the Housing Afford-
ability for Teachers and Public
Officers Act of 2005 which would
provide a one percent down pay-
ment on mortgage loans so that
teachers and public officers can
afford to purchase homes within
the communities they serve.


> SAFE > ACCURATE > EASY-TO-USE


DemiDoseTM half-splits many high-priced brand name prescription
medications, and does so with 92% to 100% accuracy.
DemiDoseTM features different pill beds for different pill sizes within
particular families of medication. It is more accurate for more
medications than any other splitter on the market today. The
Doctor who designed DemiDoseTM made it safe and easy to use
even for individuals with tremor disorders or visual impairments.

DemiDoseTM can save you between 35% and 55% on the cost of
many brand name prescription medications.


How is it possible to save
SO much?,
The secret behind saving 35%
to 55% on your monthly
prescription costs is that many
medications are "flat-priced."
"Flat-priced" means that all
tablet sizes of a medication cost
about the same. Because these
medications are flat-priced, an
80 mg tablet costs the same as a
40 mg tablet. Split it in half and
one 80 mg tab is equal to two
40 mg tabs.

After you consult with your MD or
Healthcare provider, and show
them your DemiDoseTM pill splitter
they should prescribe your medica-
tion at twice your current tablet
size, but indicate you take only 1/2
tablet daily. Instead of paying
for 30-tablets per month, you now
pay for 15-tablets that are twice
the size of what you now take..
When you half-split those larger
tablets, you use 'flat-pricing' to your
advantage.


DemiDose" accurately, easily and
safely splits leading brand prescrip-
tion medications used for:

> Cholesterol
> Heart Disease
> High Blood Pressure
> Thyroid
> Erectile Dysfunction
> Allergies
> Women's Health
> Mood
> Migraines

What" indication, ca.' I,,1 !
With i ;..
DemiDose'" half-splits different


dose sizes
medications:
> Accupril
> Fosamax@
> Levitra
> Levaquin
> Norvasc
> Premarin
> gynthroid
Socore
> Zyprexa


of the following

> Clalis
> ImItrex Oral
> Lipitor
> Lexapro
> Pravachol
> Prempro
> Viagra
> Zoloft
> Zyrtec


DemiDoseM also comes with a
generic splitting bed for accurately
splitting other medications.

Structures around the marina in Clewiston didn't fare too well
against the powerful winds of Hurricane Wilma.


Damage

sensible plan of action, but all that
Florida residents left behind
would still be tossed around like
toys in a toddler's room when
Wilma made landfall.
So, what to do while Wilma
approached? The entire popula-
tion of South Florida essentially
halted, putting aside all wedding
plans and vacation reservations to
be as prepared as one could pos-
sibly be. Storm troopers Ander-
son Cooper and Jim Cantore
seemed to be doing just fine
when they set up their camera
crews in the direct paths of dan-
gerous oncoming tropical mon-
sters. Many found themselves all
prepared and no storm to show,
with every hatch battened and no
possible way to be caught
unawares when Wilma actually
made landfall.
Shelters opened on Sunday
evening in Clewiston and Moore
Haven, where hundreds
appeared to seek safe refuge from
what was sure to be a deadly
storm.
"It's tough to be here, away
from home and a little less com-
fortable, but it's much better than
getting blown away in this
storm," said Carlos Garcia, 20,

ing the storm, but they were
driven out by Clewiston Police
deputies on patrol," said Chief
Gutshall. "There was also an
isolated incident involving a
mentally ill individual, who we
were able to subdue," he said.
No arrests were made follow-
ing the incidents.
The Clewiston Police Depart-
ment, with reinforcements from
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, will impose and
enforce a dusk curfew begin-
ning Tuesday night, as crews
begin cleanup efforts to clear all
roadways. The curfew was not
heavily enforced Monday night
(when residents did not yet
know about it), but it will be
more strictly enforced in the
days to come.
Representative Mark Foley
made thorough assessments
within the city of Clewiston, and
reported heavy damages to
many major facilities.
"There was a very large blow
to the United States Sugar Refin-
ery, where a roof was severely
damaged," Representative Foley
said. "There are reports that the
harvest will be severely affected,
most of the sugar cane has been
absolutely decimated," he said.


Visit
Continued From Page 1
many canals overflowing, the
water supply and drainage system
has been restored to normal
operations.
"The water system is already
up and running. We have full
capacity of our lift stations and
there are currently no boil water
alerts for the area," yMcCarthy
said.
Mayor Mali Chamness greeted
the Lt. Governor and thanked her


who was with his mother at the
shelter at Clewiston High School.
The maximum amount of
preparation may not have been
enough to absorb the shock of
the violent, ferocious winds of
Wilma on Monday morning.
Residents of the Glades area
knew just how to prepare them-
selves. The widespread plywood
window coverings displayed hun-
dreds of messages, curious art-
work, and business hours. One of
the most simple, straightforward
messages was both comforting
and ominous: "PRAY".
Now, as everyone bands
together with hundreds of volun-
teers from nearly every county in
Florida and across the nation, res-
idents seek a sense of normalcy.
With power expected to be
offline until at least a week to 10
days after the storm, power gen-
erators are putting out a low hum
that seems to shake everyone's
already shaken souls.
No serious injuries have been
reported from the storm, and
everyone appears to have sur-
vived the absolute devastation
caused by the 110 + mph winds.
Most residents will readily say
that the storm damage caused by
Hurricane Wilma "is just stuff".
What is important is that your
loved ones are safe, and that
everyone needs help each other
rebuild their community.


Adolfo Pena also indicated that
early estimates of crop damage
were that approximately 50 per-
cent of the sugar and orange
crops have been lost.
"There is a legislative effort
.underway to include Hurricane
Wilma victims in the Disaster
Relief Bill, originally designated
for Katrina, and that will provide
a major boost to recovery efforts
in the area," said Representatji e
Foley. "FEMA is incredibly pre-
pared to assist with recovery
efforts," he added.
FEMA relief was expected
Monday night, but had not
arrived as of Tuesday afternoon,
but was expected shortly. Initial
FEMA relief supplies included
tarps and water and ice. Mone-
tary distributions would not be
made anytime soon.
USAR search and rescue
efforts were based in Clewiston
and the Southwest Florida quad-
rant. FEMA search and rescue
was based in the Palm Beach,
Dade and Broward areas.
A temporary closure was
made to U.S. 27 northbound
due to fallen trees, but is expect-
ed to be open by the end of the
week.
Temporary food stamps have
been requested by state officials
and are expected to be available
as early as this week, according
to Lt. Governor Toni Jennings.


for the response by the state of
Florida.
"We were very impressed by
the quick response of the state of
Florida. Even before the storm
had passed, we saw the search
and rescue response teams here
to begin recovery efforts," said
Mayor Chamness.
The search and rescue efforts
were conducted by the Urban
Search and Rescue response task
force, which is operated by the
state and is comprised of emer-
gency response crews from Mari-
on County and Jacksonville.

Lady Gators



head to regions

By Mark Young


WEST PALM BEACH The
Lady Gators will take their region-
al championship aspirations on
the road to Pompano Beach to
take on Highlands Christian fol-
lowing their second place finish at
districts Oct. 20, in West Palm
Beach.
As of press time, the Lady
Gators are already in tournament
competition, but were forced on
the road after succumbing to
King's Academy who swept
Glades Day on the Lady Lion
home court in three straight.
But not before the Lady Gators
blistered a trail through the district
tournament by overpowering
Summit Christian by scores of 25-
8, 27-25, and 25-9 to open the dis-
trict tournament Oct. 24. The vic-'
tory pitted Glades Day against St.
Edwards Oct. 25 for the opportu-
nity to secure a place in regionals
as either the district champion or
the runner-up.
Glades Day had little trouble in
dispatching St. Edwards to guar-
antee a regional appearance, as
the Lady Gators gobbled up the
victory with a three-game sweep.
Glades Day took the victory with
scores of 27-25, 25-21, and 25-18.
Senior Ashley Baughman led
the Lady Gators to victory with 13
kills, but had plenty of help from
Glades Day's sophomore sensa-
tion Danielle Sly who tallied 11
kills and 22 service points, and the
Lady Gator on court leader, junior
Alleigh Schlechter who posted 11
kills of her own for the match.
The two victories gaw the Lady
Gators take the court against the
host team from King's Academy
who entered the tournament as
the number one seed and the
favorite to win the championship.
The Lady Lions had defeated the
Lady Gators twice during the reg-
ular season and despite Glades
Day sailing through the tourna-
ment to pick up their 11th victory
of the season, were tentative
against the Lady Lions to open the
championship match. '
Glades Day entered the final
match a little on edge and the jit-
ters were somewhat apparent in a
match that exposed some confi-
dence issues. Those early jitters
would cost the Lady Gators as
King's Academy broke open a
quick 5-0 lead as Glades Day
struggled to get their offense in
sync.
The Lady Lions opened up an
11-4 lead before Sly gave the Lady
Gators an emotional lift with a

Sophomore sensation
Danielle Sly goes up for one
of her two match kills against
King's Academy who Glades
Day would succumb in a bid
for the district title.
strong kill, followed by a kill from
sophomore Natalie Harville. The
back to back kills pulled the Lady
Gators within five, but the Lady
Lions would hold that advantage
until late in the match when they
broke it open with a four-point
run and eventually closed out a
25-16 victory in game one.
Game two saw a repeat per-
formance as the Lady Lions
jumped out to a quick 7-1 advan-
tage. The Lady Gators composed
themselves and mounted a brief
comeback behind the net play of
Sly and junior Candace Pavey. Sly
mounted a solid defensive per-
formance, denying two Lady Lion
kill attempts to help pull the Lady
Gators within a four-point deficit.
King's Academy held a 13-9
advantage, but launched a six-
point run in collecting triple aces
to open up a 19-9 lead. The Lady
Lions would hold on to a 25-12
victory in game two.
Fighting for the championship,
the Lady Gators claimed their first
lead of the match in game three
with Baughman leading the way
with a kill and block to give her
squad a 4-2 advantage, but the
lead would be fleeting after a 5-5
deadlock was shattered by a Lady
Lion six-point run. King's.Acade-
my would duplicate that effort to
take a 20-7 lead later in the match


Senior Ashley Baughman eyes the ball in all the way as the
Lady Gator backcourt was kept busy with a strong Lady Lion
net game.

Local businesses sought for Acceler8 projects


By Cindy Bailey
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District hosted an Accel-
er8 Construction and Business Out-
reach Symposium at LaBelle Civic
Center, on Wednesday Oct. 19, to
introduce the Acceler8 and
SFWMD construction projects, to
local businesses in LaBelle.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District, as stated on its
website, is a regional, agency that
oversees the water resources in the
southern half of the state. It is the
oldest and largest of the state's five
water management districts.
The eight Acceler8 projects are:
C-43 (Caloosahatchee River) West
Reservoir, Everglades Agricultural
Area Reservoir Phases 1 with
Bolles and Cross canals improve-
ments, Everglades Agricultural Area
Stormwater Treatment Area Expan-
sion, Picayune Strand (Southern
Golden Gate Estates) Restoration,
C-44 (St. Lucie Canal),
Reservoir/Stormwater Treatment
Area, Water Preserve Areas, Bis-
cayne Bay Coastal Wetlands -
Phase 1 and C- 111 Spreader Canal.
The symposium addressed all
eight projects, with reference to Job
Training and Business Develop-
ment, Small Business Develop-
ment, Enterprise Zone Benefits and
the SFWMD Construction Projects
overview.
In the next three months more
than $70 million in contract servic-
es will be solicited by the SFWMD
under the Acceler8 program. Sever-
al solicitations will be issued for
smaller projects in order to involve
small companies in the area.
SFWMD allows companies to
bid on contacts up to $50,000 with-
out being registered. Pre-registra-
tion is required for construction
work above $50,000.
"The whole intention of Accel-
er8 is to spread the work around,"
said Frank Hayden, Procurement
Development Director.
Stated on an information leaflet
given out on Wednesday evening,
an expanded business outreach ini-
tiative by the SFWMD is helping
smaller, local firms be part of the
action. Rio-Bak Corporation, a gen-
eral contractor with an office in
Belle Glade, was awarded two con-
tracts in September for the Acceler8

Alico-Agri announces 291 acre land purchase


LABELLE Alico, Inc. (NAS-
DAQ:ALCO), one of the South's
best-known agribusiness compa-
nies operating in Central and
Southwest Florida, announced
that Alico-Agri, Ltd., a wholly
owned subsidiary of Agri-Insur-
ance Co., Ltd. and Alico, Inc.,
purchased approximately 291
acres in Polk County, Florida on
Oct. 11, 2005 for $9.2 million.


The property contains 2,100
feet of road frontage on U.S. 27
and 2,600 feet of road frontage
on County road 640. The proper-
ty also includes approximately
2,640 feet of lakefront along
Crooked Lake, a 6,.00.:.-acei lake.
The company ideniihed the
property as an exchange proper-
ty under section 1031 of the Inter-
nal Revenue Code and intends to


defer tax on $9.2 million of pro-
ceeds from the recently
announced Ginn sale in connec-
tion with the acquisition.
John R. Alexander, chairman
and CEO of Alico, Inc. said, "We
are excited about the Crooked
Lake acquisition. The property
currently contains citrus grove,
woodlands and pasture. We will
be exploring alternative uses for


the property, including commer-
cial and residential development.
The property met with our goal
of acquiring undeveloped prop-
erty with development potential
in the path of progress. We
believe the returns from this
investment over the next five
years will prove rewarding to our
shareholders."


time, although work can be divided
between several contractors if a
project was too big for a company
to complete alone.
Ferrano said, "You have the
opportunity to work on three differ-
ent smaller projects, rather than
one big project or just work on one
big project. That is what is so great
about our program-the choice is
yours."
Qualification training is available
through SFWMD. Pre-employment
to a company that will support the
Acceler8 program will be paid in
full by SFWMD. For post employ-
ment training SFWMD will con-
tribute 50 percent toward the cost.

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most cit-
izens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their public
officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions are carrying
out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role as
humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courteous
tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your editor.

Unusual climate pattern affects lake


By MaryAnn Morris


The current weather pattern
has not taken place for the past
50 or 100 years, say scientists.
"We are experiencing an
uncommon event. South Florida
climate varies in cycles, some
that form patterns with long
return frequencies. This certain-
ly is an event of a magnitude that
normally occurs once every 50
to 100 years. That these weath-
er/climate factors are happening
at the same time, is a rarity," said
Dr. Jayantha Obeyserkera,
Director of the Hydrologic and
Environmental Systems Model-
ing Department at the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict. Educated in India and the
U.S., Dr. Obeyserkera has prac-
ticed water resource engineer-
ing for over 20 years and taught
in five countries: Dominican
Republic, Columbia, Spain, Sire
Lanka and the U.S.
Working with Paul Trimble, a
lead engineer working with
SFWMD for 28 years whose
work in hydrologic and climate
has been verified statistically by
scientists at NOAA's national
research lab in Miami, Dr. Obey-
sekera and his colleagues have
studied past weather patterns
and have closely followed them
since last year's unusual hurri-

Statistics from the National

the Atlantic Ocean has warm

typically last several decades.
The last previous warm phase
occurred from the middle 1920s

wet conditions. This is verified
in the ring patterns in the cut
cross-sections of old trees also.
By studying the tree-ring pat-
terns and information about the
climate in the past, scientists
know that the warm and cold
cycles are a regular part of the
global climate. At this time,
however, the tropical Atlantic
Ocean is even warmer than
would be expected in this cycle.
According to the scientists, it is
not known if this is due to global
warming or another natural vari-
able.
The effect of the warm/cold
cycles on Lake Okeechobee is
also shown by history. Histori-
cally, during warm phases,
inflow into the lake can be dou-
ble the inflow of cold periods.
The National Climate Data


Center's 111-year period of
record that begins in 1895
shows that the Florida statewide
wet season rainfall from 2001 to
2004 was the largest rainfall of
any other similar four-year peri-
od. Only during the middle of
the 20th century did any other
four-year period. August 2004 to
July 2005 was the wettest period
on record. Scientists at SFWMD
will be monitoring both the cli-
matic and conditions of the
watershed on a weekly basis to
be aware of the current outlook.
"Though seasonal climatic
forecasts may have significant
uncertainties, the water man-
agers need to take actions in
advance when climatic outlooks
indicate a risk of extremely wet
conditions," said Dr. Obeysek-
era.

Federal aid available for Florida hurricane victims


WASHINGTON The head of
the U.S. Department of Homeland
Security's Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA)
announced Monday that federal
disaster aid has been made avail-
able for Florida to help people
and community's recovery efforts
in the area struck by Hurricane
Wilma beginning on Oct. 23,
2005, and continuing.
... Acting Director of FEMA R.
David Paulison, said the assis-
tance was authorized under a
major disaster declaration issued
for the state by President Bush,
and designated the following
counties eligible for aid to stricken
residents and business owners:
Collier, Lee and Monroe Counties.
The assistance, to be coordi-
nated by FEMA, can include
grants to help pay for temporary
housing, home repairs and other
serious disaster-related expenses.
Low-interest loans from the U.S.
Small Business Administration
also will be available to cover resi-
dential and business losses not
fully compensated by insurance.
Additionally, Mr. Paulison said
federal funds will be provided for
the state and affected local gov-
ernments and certain private non-
profit communities to pay 75 per-
cent of the eligible costs for
restoring damaged facilities in the
counties of Brevard, Broward,
Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto, Glades,
Hardee, Hendry, Highlands, Indi-
an River, Lee, Martin, Miami-
Dade, Monroe, Okeechobee,
Osceola, Palm Beach, Polk, St.


Lucie, and Sarasota.
For a period of up to 72 hours,
assistance for debris removal and
emergency protective measures,
including direct Federal assis-
tance, will be provided at 100 per-
cent of the total eligible costs.
Federal funding is also available
on a cost-sharing basis for hazard
mitigation measures statewide.
Mr. Paulison indicated that
more counties and additional
forms of assistance may be desig-
nated after assessments are fully
completed in the affected areas.
He named Justin DeMello as the
Federal Coordinating Officer for
Federal recovery operations in the
affected areas.
Mr. DeMello said those who
sustained losses in the counties
designated for aid to affected resi-
dents and business owners can
begin the disaster application
process tomorrow by registering
online at http://www.fema.gov or
by calling 1-800-621-FEMA
(3362), or 1-800-462-7585 (TTY)
for the hearing and speech
impaired. The toll-free telephone
numbers will operate 24 hours a
day, seven days a week until fur-
ther notice.
FEMA prepares the nation for
all hazards and manages federal
response and recovery efforts fol-
lowing any national incident.
FEMA also initiates mitigation
activities, trains first, responders;
works with state and local emer-
gency managers, and manages
the National Flood Insurance Pro-
gram and the U.S. Fire Adminis-


tration. FEMA became part of the
U.S. Department of Homeland
Security on March 1,2003.

Use care when trimming damaged trees


By MaiyAnn Morris

If the storm has left broken trees
or large branches in your yard,
other than dragging the pieces to
the roadside for pickup, here's the
best way to deal with the mess.
Broken trees can be sawed into
pieces and stacked for firewood or
placed at the roadside edge of the
property for pick up. Broken or
hanging branches can be pruned
off. Like anything else, there is a
right way to do this.
Cut as illustrated, close to the
trunk, on aslant and leave the "col-
lar" as shown. If it's a long, heavy
branch, cut it off in pieces, starting
at the small end. Before you cut,
look to see where the tree or


branch will fall. Oak wood, for
instance is very heavy, and even
small pieces can cause injury, dam-
age or death.
Hatchets, machetes or other
hacking tools leave an ugly, dis-.
ease-prone stub. Use a chain saw,
if you know how to use one. If you
have purchased a new chain saw,
practice on something on the
ground before trying to use one up
over your head. Read the direc-
tions. Think before you cut. You
don't want to become a post-hurri-
cane injury statistic. You can also
use a hand saw. It takes longer, but
it will do the job.
Dan Culbert, Extension Agent,
Horticulture, for Okeechobee
County, advises "Stand away off


with a pencil or other such object
in your hand. Hold the pencil (or
whatever you have chosen)
upright at arms length and sight
along its length the height of the
overhanging tree or branch. Move
the top of the pencil right and left to
see where the tree (or branch)
might possibly fall to minimize the
chances of damage."
Don't pile branches in ditches
or on the road pavement. Branches
will slow the drainage of storm
water and collect trash that can
block the ditch completely.
Branches on road pavement can
cause an accident and slow the
progress of fire trucks, ambulances
and other emergencyvehicles.
Remember, when working in


the heat, pace yourself, take your
time and drink 2 to 4 glasses of
water every HOUR. If you wait until
you're thirsty, you are already dehy-
drated. Being dehydrated puts you
at risk for heat stroke, heat exhaus-
tion and other heat-related illness-
es. Take frequent "cool-off" breaks
while you work. Do not work in the
mid-day heat. Work early, work late
and use mid-day for a siesta!
Use insect repellent contain-
ing DEET. Apply lightly to both
clothing and exposed skin.
Information for this article
was provided by the Okee-
chobee County Extension Office
and Okeechobee County and
University of Florida IFAS.


Special to INI/ Edward F. Gilman/IFAS
Remove all dead or damaged wood without cutting into the
"collar" of the branch, close to the trunk of the tree. Cutting
Into the collar amounts to cutting into the trunk.
