Officials learn about ERA


By Mark Young
ORTONA The Everglades
Restoration Act (ERA) is one of the
single most ambitious undertak-
ings of man attempting to correct
their actions against what Mother
Nature took thousands of years to
create the Florida Everglades -
a waterway system like no other in
the world.
Florida was once a land of
amazing tales of adventure, which
equaled incredible accounts of
fantastic journeys coming out of
the dark continent of Africa and far
away lands that rivaled the best of
imaginary fairy tales. Few people
could comprehend the New
World, and even fewer could
understand the incredible descrip-
tions of Florida with her swamps,
forests, and reptilian monsters


"Unfortunately there are just some people that
waste more time in trying to find a villain than
they are willing to spend on a solution."
Mark Foley, Congressman


described and documented by
early explorers.
Florida, above any other area in
the country, drew the most promi-
nent of high 'society, including
such people as James Audubon,
who in the early 1800s document-
ed his journeys through Florida
and made many of today's popu-
lar animal residents famous
throughout the world through his
writings and artistry.
Florida's famous beginnings
began in 1513 when Ponce De
Leon landed on her shores and


named her after the very thing he
was seeking the fountain of
youth. While Spain marveled at
her beauty, and attempted to set
up early Spanish settlements, the
early American Natives would
eventually drive the Spaniards
from her shores and she would
change hands a few more times
before ending up back in the pos-
session of Spain and eventually the
United States on Feb. 22, 1819,
although Spain herself would not

Expansion




will continue


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON A local
sugar producer may have deliv-
ered a potential long-term solu-
tion to questions concerning its
future.
Well into the 2006 harvest
season, the United States Sugar
Corporation is continuing to
expand and upgrade its Clewis-
ton sugar processing and refin-
ery.facilities, and expects the
t-xparision efforts to give the
company an extra spring in its
steps towards regaining the
prosper it\ of years past.


U.S. Sugar announced in
November plans for consolidat-
ing, expanding and moderniz-
ing its sugar milling operations
at the Clewiston Mill. The proj-
ect, termed "Breakthrough," is
one of the largest private indus-
trial construction projects in the
United States, and will result in
the world's largest raw sugar
milling operations. The highly
automated.-6 operation will
enable U.S. Sugar to be a low-
cost sugar producer and greatly
enhance the long-term future

Cougar's board



being disputed


By Bill Fabian
and Mark Young
CLEWISTON A signifi-
cant change in personnel of the
Clewiston Cougar Football
Board of Directors has been
disputed by former board
members, who claimed they
were misled into leaving a pub-
lic meeting, just before a vote
for new members was taken.
According to former board
member April White and other
volunteers, organizers at the
Jan. 5 meeting for the reelec-
tion of the Cougar Board of
Directors informed certain indi-
viduals that a vote would not
happen until Jan.:19, and so a
number of attendees then left


the meeting.
After those individuals left
the meeting, however, a vote
was tallied for the new Cougar
Board that night, omitting a sig-
nificant number of incumbent
members, including Mrs.
White.
"I just hope that they can do
it over again, and do it right,"
said Mrs. White, who had pre-
viously served as the board's
secretary. "We were told that
night that the vote would be
taken on Jan. 19, and so when
we left the meeting that night,
we were under that impres-
sion," she said.

Second Chance School opens


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON Alternative
education for middle and high
schools students in Clewiston
and Hendry County has come a
long way since its' beginning on a
smaller scale when it was still
known as "The Dome."
Now housed in the former
location of the Clewiston Inter-
mediate School, the Clewiston
Youth Development Academy
has strengthened its internal
resources, and now provides an
alternative teaching and learning
environment for more than 90
middle and high school students.
"We're looking for a
refreshed, positive atmosphere
for the community's youth
involved in the Clewiston Youth
Development Academy, and the
Second Chance School will be
designed to provide that," said
CYDA Lead Teacher Jeremy
Greaves.
In light of the ongoing expan-
sion of the CYDA program, the
Hendry County School Board


and Clewiston Police Department
have joined hands in an effort to
provide support and encourage-
ment to students in need of alter-
native education and counseling,
culminating in the "Second
Chance School" at CYDA. The
grand opening of the Second
Chance School was held Mon-
day, Jan. 29 at the CYDA campus.
The school is part of a pro-
gram to revitalize and intensify
the reach of CYDA's discipline
and counseling functions, and
will also be utilized in an effort to
reform the program's image to a
vital tool for youth outreach.
After assuming lead teaching
responsibilities of the school in
November, Mr. Greaves has
established groundbreaking new
projects to enhance the CYDA's
capabilities, including the instal-
lation of a computer database
that provides better information
for counseling, and strengthens
disciplinary methods by provid-
ing vital information about stu-
dents and alternative education
issues.


Among additional projects
introduced by Mr. Greaves is a
school uniform, which will be
designed in harmony with the
uniform policy at Clewiston Mid-
dle School.
"Our goal is to create a differ-
ent attitude'and atmosphere.that
will encourage better choices
and make a difference as far as
behavioral issues," said Mr.
Greaves. "Another major goal is
to create more accountability on
their roles as students, and to take
a more proactive approach as far
as identifying special needs of the
students," he said.
A native of Miami, Mr. Greaves
taught third grade in Palm Beach
County for two years before com-
ing to CYDA.
"Mr. Greaves is an extremely
hard worker, he really cares
about the kids and he has some
really great ideas for the CYDA,"
said Hendry County Schools Asst.
Superintendent Gordonm Swag-
gerty, who attended the opening

Step Up, Florida promotes active, healthy lifestyle


Glades County
Bridge Walk
upcoming

By Derek Carlton

In February, a relay event will
take place across all of Florida's 67
counties. Beginning Feb. 1, four
routes in different regions of the
state will begin making their way
to meet in Duval County as part of
the third annual Step Up, Florida!
campaign. This year the Florida
Department of Health adopted a


new slogan for Step Up, Florida!
60 A Day the Florida Way to
help participants implement the
United States Department of Agri-
culture dietary guidelines that sug-
gest 60 minutes of physical activity
a day will help manage body
weight and prevent gradual
weight gain.
Step Up, Florida On Our
Way To Healthy Living is an annu-
al statewide initiative promoting
physical activity and healthy
lifestyles to Floridians of all ages
and abilities. Relay race partici-
pants will pass a fitness flag from
county to county until all four flags


reach Duval County Feb. 28 for the
grand finale celebration.
The 2006 event will celebrate
three years of promoting the
importance of physical activity to
Floridians. Each county health
department, in conjunction with
community partners, will deter-
mine specific local routes and
physical activity opportunities that
will be highlighted throughout
their community.
Glades County Health Depart-
ment along with our community
partners will be hosting The Sec-
ond Annual Step Up, Florida
Bridge Walk, on Saturday, Feb. 11.


Registration will be held at the
front of Health Department and
begins at 7 a.m. and ends at 8 a.m.
The Walk will start at 8:15 a.m. All
participants will receive a free Step
Up Florida T-shirt or Step Up Flori-
da Hat.
Everyone knows that regular
exercise greatly improves one's
health, but getting started is not
always easy. Step Up, Florida pro-
vides a great opportunity for
Floridians of all abilities, young
and old, to take the first step
toward healthy living!

Health Fair to take place February 19


The Hendry/Glades Communi-
ty Health Fair will take place Sun-
day, Feb. 19, at the Clewiston Mid-
dle School from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Gate will close at 3 p.m.
The Hendry/Glades Health
Department partners with other
organizations such as Nova South-
eastern University College of
Osteopathic Medicine (NSU-
COM), Everglades Area Health
Education Centers (AHEC), and
local organizations to provide free
services and educational materials,
as well as giveaways.
Last year there were over 500
people attending the fair with 150
people taking advantage of med-
ical exams. The fair had over 40
organizations set up with much
needed educational materials.
This is the third year for the
Hendry/Glades Community Health
Fair and the goal is to continue to
provide a full range of medical
services at no cost to the public.
There will be the featured benefit
of NSU's medical students, as well


as physician assistant, pharmacy,
dentistry, ophthalmology, physical
and occupational therapy, audiolo-
gy, and nursing. Local physicians,
NSU's faculty and local health care
providers will be on hand.
Community physicians have
volunteered their time to provide
services and supervise students. All
medical students will be super-
vised by a licensed practitioner.
Screenings include blood pressure,
glucose, mammogram screening
vouchers, bone density tests,
eye/hearing exams, and confiden-
tial HIV testing. This year, the fair
will provide additional services
such as body fat analysis, skin
analyses for cancer risk and skin
type.
Another exciting addition to this
year's health fair will be the pres-
ence of "Medicare Matters", trained
staff will be on hand with answers
to questions about Medicare Part
D.
Participants will also be able to
sign on to a program with online


access, or receive advice about
other methods for joining a plan.
This is a valuable tool for our senior
and disabled citizens who are
unable to access the Internet to
sort out the various plans.
"Medicare Matters" is sponsored
by The National Council on the
Aging (NCOA) and the Access to
Benefits Coalition.
The Hendry/Glades Communi-
ty Health Fair has received gener-
ous support from Hendry and
Glades Counties and the cities of
Moore Haven and Clewiston. Vol-
unteers from Hendry Regional
Medical Center, headed by Tony
Miracle, will be handing out free
barbeque to the participants. The
Clewiston Lions Club will be doing
the cooking again this year and
there will be volunteers from Palm
Beach Community College School
of Nursing, Mrs. Thomas' class
from Clewiston High School, and
community volunteers to help
guide the participants.
There will also be interpreters


on hand, as well as Lake Okee-
chobee Rural Health Network
(LORHN) to assist with the pre-
scription assistance program. Par-
ticipants will also be able to receive
guidance and referrals for follow
up visits.
Festivities will include a bounce
house for the kids to enjoy and
door prizes will be given out
throughout the day.
Dr. Anthony Silvagni, dean of
NSU-COM will be meeting with
federal, state, and local legislators
during the fair to bring attention to
the need for quality health care in
our rural setting. They will see first-
hand how beneficial health fairs of
this nature are to our area of critical
need. There is a shortage of health
care professions in this area and
there is hope that some of the stu-
dents that participate in this event
will want to practice in a rural area.
Everyone is encouraged to
come out Sunday, Feb. 19, to take
advantage of this unique opportu-
nity.

County building




permits rising


Permits for
site built homes
outstrip mobiles

By Patty Brant

Things are heating up in
Hendry County's planning and
zoning departments. During
2005, all the talk about growth
began to take on a more tangi-
ble form as the numbers
showed a marked increase over
previous years. For the first time,
more permits have been filed to
build site built homes than
mobile homes dramatically
more.
Already Hendry County's
new planner Lynnee Rodriguez,
who has only been with county
since last October, said six build-
ing permits were filed during the
first week of 2006 for the next
six-month cycle. Most of these
are requests to change a land
use from agriculture to residen-
tial or from low density residen-
tial to higher density. In all of
2005, 11 comp plan amend-
ments and 24 rezoning applica-
tions were filed for all of unin-
corporated Hendry County. Also
during 2005, there were two spe-
cial eyent permits, 37 vested
rights (requests to be grandfa-
thered before a zoning change),
12 special exception applica-
tions, four variances and two
administrative waivers were
handled.
According to Ms. Rodriguez,
rezoning requests are the largest
number of actions filed, espe-
cially in Hendry's LeHigh area
where recent county commis-
sion action finally rendered
many lots buildable. There will
be no industrial zoning in that
area, she says, because the road
is not being built to commercial
specifications.
The county is currently
addressing the Department of
Community Affairs (DCA) con-
cerns on the comp plan amend-
ment filed for the 18,000-acre
West LaBelle area north of the
river mainly the CR 78 area. At
present, this is the county's hot
spot for impending growth. The
comp plan calls for a density of
one unit per two acres, one unit
per one acre or two units per
acre, she said. It will also change
the land use on both sides of SR
80 in that area to commercial. At
present, Bonita Bay and several


other large developers are
actively planning developments
for that area.
Bonita Bay is also busy plan-
ning a community for the Paul
property annexed by the City of
LaBelle along SR 29S. A Devel-
opment of Regional Impact
(DRI) is being considered for
that property.
It's apparent that 2006 will be
a busy time for Ms. Rodriguez
and her staff.
"The area is busting out," she
said, "it's boom time." In the
past couple months she has
been meeting lots of folks and
getting her Hendry County feet
wet. She was with the Regional
Planning Council in Bartow for
13 years before coming here:
She says the county needs time
to actively plan for the long
range. Currently, it's all "devel-
oper driven," she said. She's
working on getting a sense of
the area so she can have better
input into how the county
should grow. With so many
large land owners, particularly
farmers, deciding to sell off their
property, large land developers
are currently priming the devel-
opment well, but it's Ms.
Rodriguez goal to jump
ahead of 'the developers and
project the county s"
future needs for schools and
transportation. She will then
take her information to the
county administrator and ulti-
mately to the county commis-
sion for action.
At the present time, interest
in West LaBelle is very high. The
county is in.the midst of plan-
ning water and sewer infrastruc-
ture for the area, as well as
throughout the county. No
development can take place
until that infrastructure is in
place. Input is being gathered
from all interested parties 6
county offices, the City of
LaBelle (which has expressed
an interest in providing serviced
there), developers and current
residents.
On the eastern side of the
county as well, large national.
companies are showing an inter-
est in large tracts of land on SR
80 and south of Clewiston. A
deal for-a truck stop, restaurant
and hotel for Airglades Airport is
also in the works.

Organizations and memories roots


The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston

I recall a mini-test that some-
one told me about a long time
ago. You give someone four
words and ask
which three go .," .
together. The -
words are
"Cathedral .'-...
Temple .
House "
Prayer." Now, .
which three go -
together? The
answer, of
course, Rev, Samuel
depends on S. Thomas
how you
organize things and how you've
practiced in the past.
If you're a contractor or archi-
tect you'd most likely say "Easy,
it's Cathedral Temple -
House; they're all buildings." On
the other hand, if you have reli-
gious beliefs, you'd answer
"Easy, Cathedral Temple -
Prayer, can't you see they're all
about spiritual things?" In reality,
words are more-or-less neutral; it
depends on our organization,


past experiences, practice, and
mindsets. Human beings are
made to search their past experi-
ences for answers to apply
what is already learned in new
situations.
We go back into our mental
closets and look for a way of
reacting to something in front of
us and come up with the most
similar thing we did or remem-
bered to call the "answer" or
"what to do." Television gives us
vicarious experiences we see
what is going on and we are
influenced by it. If the news tells
us who are the good guys and
who are the bad guys we're
not too critical about what is in
front of us because we are usual-
ly in a relaxed setting when we
watch. Home is one of the safer
places in our lives and we're like-
ly to be far less critical about
what comes in there, less likely
to think hard about weather
something is true or an accurate
portrayal of what really goes on.
When we're relaxed, we're more
ready to absorb, to put into
memory storage, to recall as "the
way if really is; when we need to
dig out an answer later on.
The Biblical account of Jesus


healing the demoniac (Luke
827ff) is about a mindset. Jesus
encounters a man who was
described as demon possessed.
Luke recounts that, "When he
saw Jesus, he cried out and fell at
his feet, shouting at the top of his
voice 'what do you want with me
Jesus. I beg you don't torture
me'. (vs. 28)."
You see what his mindset let
him to anticipate; what his past
experiences taught him about
people, what he expected, how
he reacts to anyone who comes
near him. It's tragic, but it's what
he no doubt has repeated time
and again by those who rejected
him, tormented him, shut him
out, gave him a view of "reality"
that wasn't all that real and cer-
tainly didn't help him when the
chance for a new life was in front
of him.
In fact, the reality was that he
would be healed but that seemed
to be the farthest thing from his
mind" that day. People fill their
heads with "reality" by choosing
what they watch, what they read,
what games they play, what
friends they choose, what experi-
ences they have. They go back
into that "reality" when it comes


to being violent or being at peace
with others, being kind and help-
ful or being angry and spiteful,
being competitive or being coop-
erative, being selfish or being self-
less. When we're not careful
about what we put into "stor-
age", we may deny ourselves
healing, kindness, goodness, joy.
We never expect it and people
will live up to our expectations. I
try to think carefully about what I
see, what games I play, what I
read, what I hear, what I do. It is a
safeguard and has a way of keep-
ing me from getting down or
winding up doing something that
healthy, happy, free people really
don't do.
One message from the para-
ble about he demonic is that he
loaded the dice against himself
- I really don't want to do that
- neither do most people that I
know. Part of the preparation for
healing is when sick attitudes are
changed and belief sets the stage
what might take place whole-
ness and peace. It's up to each of
us to set our stages when it
comes to healing of societies. Be
judicious about what is taken in.
It can really come back to haunt
you!


The personal touch makes the difference


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church

One day Lamar Hunt, the man
who started the American Foot-
ball League and owner of the
Kansas City Chiefs, came across
one of his daughter's toys called a
"Super Ball" and was given in that
moment the inspiration for the
name of the championship game
between his upstart AFL and the
old guard National Football
League. "Why not," he won-
dered, "call our championship
game the Super Bowl?" The
name caught on and an American
tradition was born.
Super Bowl XL is coming
towards us. The Pittsburgh Steel-
ers and the Seattle Seahawks.
Who's going to win? Every game
has a winner, every game has a
loser. Every game has a hero,
every game has a goat. Every
game has a moment of triumph
and every game has a moment of
failure.


Some of you might remember
the 1989 MVP of Super Bowl 23 -
Jerry Rice. Before retiring, he
played for the Seattle Seahawks in
2004. Considered one of the
greatest receivers in the history of
football, Rice won three Super
Bowls with San Francisco
(1989,90,95) and is the NFL all-
time leader in touchdowns,
receptions, and receiving yards -
both in regular season and Super
Bowl play.
Rice was wooed by many
large colleges, but chose to play
for Mississippi Valley State Univer-
sity, in Itta Bena, Mississippi, a vir-
tual unknown. When asked why
he chose to attend a small,
obscure college, Rice responded,
"Out of all the big-time schools
(such as UCLA) recruiting me,
MVSU was the only school to
come to my house and give me a
personal visit."
The big-time schools recruited
through cards, letters, and adver-
tisements, but only one came to
meet him and- showed Rice per-


sonal attention. It makes a differ-
ence in this world to meet people
eye to eye and invite them to be a
part.
Cards and letters are nice and
they're meaningful, but they can
only do so much. A shake of the
hand and a personal touch makes
a much greater difference.
Such it is in our evangelism.
Effectively reaching people for
Christ is personal the personal
touch of meeting people where
they are and communicating with
them in their language.
The Chevy Nova was a very
successful car for Chevrolet for
several years. They had such suc-
cess with it in the states they
decided to market the car
throughout the world. In the Latin
markets the car was a complete
failure. The research department
went to work to figure out why
but they remained baffled until
one day they discovered the
answer. In Spanish the word
Nova meant "no.go." No Go! The
Chevy No Go!


Purdue Farms had the same
problem when they tried to
expand their chicken business.
Their popular slogan tried to
appeal to women by making men
prepare a chicken dinner. Do you
recall the slogan? It was, "It takes
a tough man to make a tender
chicken." Desiring to reach into
the Spanish market. they translat-
ed their slogan and announced to
the entire Latino world, "It takes a
virile man to make a chicken
affectionate." Now that's a per-
sonal touch, but not exactly the
kind I would recommend!
The personal touch I recom-
mend means meeting people on
their level, where they are. It
means speaking their language,
understanding their jobs, taking
an interest in their hobbies, and
speaking to them about their fam-
ilies. The personal touch takes
time, but it is the best way to
reach the world for Christ and
realize victory in the Super Bowl
offlife. The personal touch makes
the difference.

Thanks to all the generous
people who attended the 2006
Wild Pig & Pepper Jam in Felda
on New Year s Day, we
were able to raise almost $2,000
for the Harry Chapin Food Bank
of SW Florida. Very special
thanks to Alan and Irene Trask
and Debbie and David Klemmer

for donating their mouth-water-
ing pies and their help with

Pet Corner


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. My cat has
trouble with constipation. As a
result, he has some problems
with personal hygiene resulting in
"dingle berries." Know what I
mean? Any ideas? Thanks, signed
nameless cause I'm shameless in
Belle Glade.
A. Dear
Nameless. Yes!
I do know
what dingle
berries are! It's
a bunch of
dried up clingy.:
stool on your
cat's bottomn-
not very attrac-
tive! This does Noelle
come some- Savedoff
times as a
result of constipation. First of all, I
do recommend a check up with
your vet ASAP to find- out why
there is a problem. In the mean-
time, how about .a little mineral
oil in your cat's food every day for
a few days to see if that can soften


his stool and make him more
comfortable. Good Luck, Doc
Savvy.
Q: Dear Doc Savvy. I'm think-
ing of breeding my female
Labrador this spring. When is an
appropriate age to do so? Thanks,
Betty in Loxahatchee.
A: Hey Betty, that's avery good
question! It is very important to
wait until your Lab is of age to
help ensure a healthy pregnancy
and delivery. In my opinion the
ideal time is her third or fourth
heat cycle. This usually translates
to I 1,2 to 2 years of age. Also
please make sure both male and
*female are healthy, vaccinated,
heartworm tested and free of any
reproductive diseases. Take care,
Doc Savvy.
Be sure to e-mail your pet
questions to DocSavvy@aol.com
and, check out your answers
weekly in The Pet Corner. Tune
into The Savvy Vet Show Thurs-
days at 10:30 a.m. on 93.5 FM The
Big Dawg.

Arrests made in South Florida foreclosure scams


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist, Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
Commissioner Guy Tunnell and
* Miami-Dade County Inspector Gen-
eral Christopher Mazzella
announced the arrest of four indi-
viduals for their roles in two sepa-
rate but related scams. One of the
scams, a fraud scheme involving
surplus foreclosure funds, victim-
ized at least 20 Florida homeown-
ers, while the other victimized an
elderly South Florida homeowner
through surplus foreclosure funds
and mortgage fraud.
FDLE agents arrested attorney
Terrence Rosenberg, ,Shannelle
Brantley and Leighton Brown, all of
Miami, for their roles in the mort-
gage fraud and surplus foreclosure
funds scam. Authorities also arrest-
ed Manuel Rosado Jr. of Miami in
connection with the foreclosure
surplus fraud scheme, in which
Rosenberg also participated. All the
defendants will be prosecuted by
the Attorney General's Office of
Statewide Prosecution.
"Floridians should not have to
worry about being targeted by con
artists trying to cheat them out to
their hard-earned money," said
Crist.
"The arrest of these individuals
is significant because this is not the
kind of criminal case that is made
with any regularity," said Tunnell.
"We hope that these arrests will
send a message that this kind of
fraudulent activity is totally driac-
ceptable and unlawful, and that


cases like this will be actively pur-
sued and prosecuted."
Authorities allege that the fore-
closure. funds scam was master-
minded by Rosado with attorney
Rosenberg's assistance. Rosado,
31, used records from state courts
in Miami-Dade and Hillsborough
counties to locate surplus foreclo-
sure funds left over from homes
auctioned to satisfy mortgages.
Rosenberg would then file court
paperwork typically used to claim
the funds for the homeowners.
However, Rosado would keep the
funds for his personal use instead
of disbursing them to the appropri-
ate homeowners. Rosenberg, -61,
faces pending disbarment action
before the Florida Supreme Court
for his participation in the scheme.
The second scam resulted in the
eviction of an elderly victim from
her South Florida home. Investiga-
tors charge that Rosenberg and an
accomplice approached the 68-
year-old victim after learning she
had recently lost her house due to
foreclosure and persuaded her to
pay them her surplus foreclosure
funds, supposedly taking a fee for
their help in locating a new house
and using the remaining amount to
purchase the house on her behalf.
Brantley, 26, assisted in the fraud by
submitting fraudulent mortgage
documents that enabled the
thieves to purchase a house, which
they quickly resold and kept the
money for their personal use. The
elderly victim, who was living in the
new house when it was resold, was


evicted by the new buyers. During
the investigation that followed,
Brown, 25, allegedly contacted wit-
nesses and urged them to lie to the
police regarding the fraudulent
mortgage documents.
Inspector General Mazzella
expressed his dismay at the prolif-
eration of crimes targeting home-
owners. He said, "As the equity in
homes increases because of the
boost in property values, residential
dwellings become attractive targets
to criminal predators. The elabo-
rate foreclosure and mortgage
scheme.concocted by the defen-
dants.to bleed the equity.out of the
victims' homes is suggestive of a
growing crime problem that is seri-


ously impacting homeowners
nationally and in Miami-Dade
County."
Rosado and Rosenberg are
charged with organized scheme to
defraud and second-degree grand
theft. Brantley is charged with filing
a false document in a mortgage
transaction and second-degree
grand theft, while Brown is
charged with being an accessory
after the fact.
If convicted of all charges, Rosa-
do faces a maximum sentence of
45 years in prison, Rosenberg faces
up to 30 years in prison, Brantley
faces up to 20 years in prison and
Brown faces up to five years in
prison.


Companies violate
consumer privacy
for profit

TALLAHASSEE Profiteers
who obtain or sell phone
records would be subject to
criminal penalties under legisla-
tion filed by Senator Dave Aron-
berg (D-Greenacres).
"Unscrupulous companies
have fueled a growth industry in
which phone records are
obtained through deceptive
means, and then sold to anyone
with less than $100," said Sena-
tor Aronberg.
This is typically done by
impersonating the subscriber,
clandestinely gaining online
account access, or collaborating
with dishonest phone company
employees. Unlike financial
data, there are no laws or regula-
tions protecting consumer
phone records. The unregulated
environment has led to the pro-
liferation of the phone records
industry there are currently
more than 40 companies adver-
tising such services over the
Internet alone.
A former Florida assistant
attorney general in the econom-
ic crimes division, even Aron-


"Selling
records


phone
obtained


through devious
means is a serious
threat to our privacy
and safety"
Dave Aronberg,
Senator (D-Greenacres)

berg was surprised at the prolif-
eration of companies who are
allowed to snoop for a profit.
"Selling phone records
obtained through devious
means is a serious threat to our
privacy and safety," Sen. Aron-
berg said. "Fortunately, the state
of Florida can do something
about it."
Sen. Aronberg's bill would
make it illegal to deceptively
obtain and sell phone records.
First-time violators would face
up to a year in prison and a
$1,000 fine. Repeat offenders
could serve up to five years in
prison.
Aronberg's bill SB 1488 -
is being sponsored by Represen-
tative Tim Ryan (D-Dania) in the
Florida House of Representa-
tives.

Gun range question tabled


Pet of the Week winner
If Webster was ever having trouble coming up with a
definition of cute, all he had to do was plaster a pic-
ture of Copper in the appropriate place. Copper is a
half pitt, half lab and is four months old. According to
his owners Michael and Kristen Alfaro, Copper is the
family's pride and joy and besides being overly curi-
ous about getting his picture taken, is always ready to
play. But a day outdoors at play can get even the
cutest of little pups dirty, so Copper can get all nice
and clean as this week's Pet of the Week winner. As
the winner, Copper will receive a day of pampering at
Doc Savvy's Animal Hospital's pet spa, in Belle Glade.
To contact Veterinarian Doc Savvy, call (561) 996-5500
and arrange Copper's day of leisure with Doc Savvy's
most attentive staff.



Healthy hair starts


with good nutrition


Despite what the ads claim,
conditioners and hot oil treat-
ments can't make hair grow. If
you want long, healthy hair, you
have to start from the inside.
The average person's hair
grows about six inches a year.
Some people just naturally grow
their hair faster. Other's hair may
not grow as fast. -- .
If you are healthy iad eat a
balanced diet, your hair should
reflect it. Certain health prob-
lems and nutritional deficiencies
may cause hair to be brittle or
even to fall out. For example, if
your thyroid is under active, your
hair may be frizzy and brittle. If
your thyroid is overactive, your
hair may be greasy and limp.
Vitamins that are important
to hair growth include B-vita-
mins, beta-carotene, biotin and
folic acid. Minerals such as mag-
nesium, silica and zinc are also
important to healthy hair. But
don't go overboard with vita-
mins taking excessive doses of
some vitamins may cause hair to
fall out!
Hair is made of protein, so a
diet too low in protein may slow
hair growth or even result in
some thinning. Liver, brewer's
yeast and wheat germ are other
foods thought to help provide
the body with the nutrition nec-
essary for healthy hair.
Other good food sources for
protein include fish, eggs, beans
and yogurt. Soy protein has also
been found to be helpful in stim-
ulating hair growth.
Some medications may affect
hair growth. If you are on any
prescription medications and
notice a change in your hair, ask
your doctor if there may be a
connection.
Stress may slow hair growth
or even cause hair to fall out.
Lack of sleep may cause hair to
grow more slowly than normal.
I found the following tips on


A.
Healthier
Life


with Katrina Elsken :


www.hairboutique.com:
Eliminate or cut back on
smoking, caffeine and carbonat-
ed sodas which weaken the
body and block maximum hair
growing potential.
Eat a healthy diet. Avoid
foods that are high in sugar or
fat.
Treat your hair like a piece
of fine old lace. Treat it carefully
avoiding any unnecessary
brushing, combing or handling.
Avoid use of hot water, hot
blow dryers or other hair care
tools that may stress the hair.
Have a weekly scalp mas-
sage to provide stimulation to
the hair follicles.
Do a series of ongoing hot
oil treatments to protect the
hair's shaft.
Have regular trims to elimi-
nate split ends and allow the
hair to look and feel healthier.
Get plenty of rest and sleep
to allow your body to grow hair.
Before making any change in
your diet or exercise program,
consult your doctor. This is
especially important if you are
on any prescription medica-
tions. Some drugs interact badly
with foods that would other-
wise be considered "healthy."
Just because vitamins and other
nutritional supplements are
sold over the counter, this does
not make them safe for every-
one. Consult your doctor about
the appropriate supplements
and dosages for you.


By Patty Brant
Questions on reinstatement
of privileges for a private gun
club at the sheriff's gun range,
located off SR 80 in Pioneer
Plantation, remain unanswered.
At the Jan. 24 county commis-
sion meeting, President of the
Caloosa Sports Shooters Associ-
ation Ed Kuntz said the original
plan was for a dual law enforce-
ment/public shooting facility
and that the arrangement
worked well for four years.
However, questions about insur-
ance and who had keys to the
premises prompted Sheriff Ron-
nie Lee to close the shotgun and
pistol/rifle range to the public.
The skeet and trap range
remains open to the public. The
question involves use of the pis-
tol and rifle range.
It is a certified National Rifle
Association (NRA) range that
attracted sport shooters from
throughout the area and also
served youth -groups including
the Boy Scouts and 4-H. Mr.
Kuntz said he understood the
sheriff's issues but asked for a
temporary permit to use the
facility when law enforcement
was not training there. He added
that since the club is no longer
shooting there, the berms have
become overgrown. The club
previously took care of that type
of maintenance.
County Attorney Kate English
recapped the range's history. The
range started in 1980 as a training
facility for the sheriff's office. In
1995 it was expanded to include
the public. Ms. English said she
could not find information on
what came about after that, but it
was apparent that then Sheriff
Tommy Vaughan saw a need for
a public range. He began to set
up an operating schedule, which
was apparently never completed.
In 2002 former Sheriff Steve Wor-
ley received grant monies, built
the existing facility and improved
the range.
She said the board has two
options if it allows public use of
the range: Direct Sheriff Lee to
operate it as a limited public
range or put out a Request For
Proposals to set up a compre-
hensive public range.
Mr. Kuntz said he would like
to work with the sheriff on an
appropri, e schedule. He said
it's important for young people
especially to learn how to han-
dle firearms saic-, hunter
safety programs and the- ia -x j
the range. He said people could
call for reservations and that
there would be certified person-
nel at the range when members
of the public were using it.
Commissioner Kevin
McCarthy said it is his intention
to open the range to the public.
The board voted to table the
matter till Sheriff Lee could be
on hand for the discussion. In
the meantime, Ms. English was
asked to meet with the sheriff to
work out some details.

Multi-county agent
County Agent Gene McAvoy
received the okay from the
board for a interlocal agreement
to fund three multi-county com-
mercial extension agent posi-
tions to be shared among
Hendry, Glades, Collier, Lee and
Charlotte Counties. He will now
approach the other counties
with the proposal.

Airglades
Jan Groves, Director of the
Hendry County Economic Devel-
opment Council, asked the com-
missioners to reconsider a stipu-
.lation requiring a traffic study by
a possible Airglades tenant. The
company has already made a
firm commitment to Hendry
County, she said, to bring a truck
stop, restaurant and hotel to Air-
glades. The center will include a
truck-tracking center for the
entire southern United States
and will provide services for
transportation 24/7. It will be a
topnotch facility for trucks, she
said, with truck wash, scales,

barbershop and 24-hour road
service. It will provide 30 full
time jobs. The commissioners
agreed and dropped the demand
for a traffic study.

Through the fence
operations
The board decided not to
allow further through-the-fence
operations at county airports.
This will not affect current oper-
ations. Both the FAA and FDOT
discourage such operations,

which could prevent the county
from receiving funding.

Federal projects
The county's, project wish list
priorities for federal dollars are:
SR 80 four-laning ($6 million);
Emergency Operations Center
($1.5 million); Ft. Denaud
Bridge replacement SEIR study
($500,000); Harlem downtown
revitalization ($1 million); Port
LaBelle Regional Park
($300,000); and LaBelle Airport
Terminal ($600,000). Also on the
list are: CR 78 ($2.5 million); CR
833 ($2 million); emergency
radio station $250,000).

In other business
Commissioners approved
donating $1,100 to the Clewis-
ton High School third year juve-
nile justice class for its annual
trip to Washington, D.C. The stu-
dents early fundraising
efforts this term went for Hurri-
cane Katrina victims and left
them short for this important
trip. Still, they managed to earn
about half the funds they need-
ed. Advisor Kristine Peterson
was accompanied by three of
her students, each of whom
spoke on the importance of this
experience. The group has also
been invited to lay a wreath at
the Tomb of the Unknown Sol-
der while in the nation's capitol.
The board also approved a
$1,000 donation to both LHS
and CHS Project Graduations.
Richard A. Bass was
appointed to the Port LaBelle
Utilities Board.
Ms. English was asked to
investigate the enforceability of
an anti-jake brake law in the
county.
The county's leasing of
office space at the old K-Mart in
Clewiston to replace offices
destroyed in Hurricane Wilma is
costing more than anticipated.
An additional $42,000 is needed
to complete the Clerk's Office
and public restrooms that were
overlooked. Additional figures
for the sheriff's office and court
are not in yet but are expected to
be even higher.
The board issued another
state of emergency relating to
Hurricane Wilma since there is
still clean up to be done.
The Tourism Development
Council is considering asking for
an increase in the bed tax, paid

The county has completed

board voted to re-bid a demoli-
tion/replacement at Hookers

funds. Home to a family of four,
the house has substantial lead

commission meeting will be at 4

February brings the state of
South Florida's busy festival sea-
son. Many of these festivals
began under the brainstorming
of our early pioneers. They are
as follows:

Ortona Cane
Grinding Festival
ORTONA The annual
Ortona Cane Grinding Festival is
planned for Saturday, Feb. 4, 10
a.m. until 3 p.m. The Cane
Grinding Festival was started 26
years ago to raise money for the
Ortona Fire Department. It is

located on the north side of
Highway 78 West next to the
Ortona Cemetery. There will be
bluegrass music all day, an old-
fashioned sugar cane grinding

steak or half chicken, potato,
coleslaw and tea or coffee all for

Sour Orange
Festival
LAKEPORT The Sour
Orange Festival is planned for
Saturday, Feb. 11 from 10 a.m.
until 3 p.m. Bring your own fold-

like an old-fashioned communi-
ty picnic. A high note is the Sour
Orange cook-off. Contestants
are asked to bring copies of their
recipe and two full dishes of
their entry, one for judging and
one to raffle off.
The sour orange was brought
to Florida in the 1500s by Span-
ish explorers required by law to
plant orange seeds wherever
they traveled because of their
medicinal value. Sour oranges
are used by many nationalities
to make wine, marmalade,
candy and to flavor meats, such
as in the Cuban mojito sauce.
Sour oranges are more aromatic
than sweet oranges and the
French consider sour oranges
essential for duck a l'orange.
Cointreau, Grand Marinier and
Curaco are made from sour
orange and in the Middle East,
cakes and candies are flavored
with orange flower water. Lake-
port is on Highway 78 between
Moore Haven and Okeechobee.
A "gator band" will play all.
day, plus a clogging demonstra-
tion, arts and crafts booths and
'the annual auction called by
auctioneer Wendell Cooper
from the Okeechobee Livestock
Market.

Bubbles will entertain; and bal-
loon art, face painting and pony
rides will be the order of the day.
Admission is $3, children under
12 are admitted free. A barbeque
dinner is $5 and sour orange pie
will be sold by the slice. Lake-
port is on Highway 78 between
Okeechobee and Highway 27.
Follow the signs to Old Lakeport

information, call 863-946-0371.

Swamp Cabbage
Festival
LABELLE The Swamp
Cabbage Festival in LaBelle will
run Friday, Feb. 24 to Sunday,
Feb. 26. The festival was started
in 1967 as a Jaycee project to
foster community participation
during U.S. Jaycee Week. The
Jaycees knew that the local cab-
bage palms were important to
settlers as both food and build-
ing materials, and created a festi-
val honoring the delicacy known
as "hearts of palm."


The Swamp Cabbage Festival
will include a parade, rodeo,
fishing tournaments, festival
booths, and entertainment in
Barron Park on the Caloosa-
hatchee River in LaBelle. Festival
booths will include Seminole
native craft and food booths, as
well as local and international
artisans, crafters, and food
including the now famous
swamp cabbage. A Pioneer Fam-
ily is honored each year in addi-
tion to the crowning of the
Swamp Cabbage Queen. On Sat-
urday, the "Swamp Stomp," a 5K
run, takes place before the
parade. Applications for booths
and parade entries are available
now from the Hendry County
Supervisor of Elections Office.

Mertie Van de Velde and the storm of '26


"When the lake overflowed
in 1922 with all the rains, we had
to leave the farm because it just
covered the whole land and so
we moved into Moore Haven. I
went to college in Tallahassee
and got my teacher's certificate
and came back and taught
school in 1923 and '24 until I
married Joe Van de Velde in
October of 1924. This house we
are in today is the house that I
came to. It was built in 1921 and
I've lived in it for 64 years off and
on.
"When I taught school I had
one family and there was five
children. They went from the
first grade to the eighth grade.
They were Perry Albritton's chil-
dren and they lived in what is
now Buckhead Ridge. Joe was
just my sweetheart then and he
and another fisherman took me
across the lake. We found Buck-
head Ridge from landmark trees.
"At that time we didn't have
all this vegetation. It was clean
and clear right down to the
shoreline. I lived with Albritton's
during the week. Mr. Ennis


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history


,..' .. e -


Hayes was the school superin-
tendent. They paid me $75 a
month and that was very good
money at that time.
"Now Mr. Stubbs was a fel-
low who lived on the Kissimmee
River and he would come and
pick me up. There was a school-
teacher at Eagle Bay who had
come from Dania. Mr. Stubbs
would pick her up too and we'd
go all the way to Okeechobee
City and come up in Taylor's
Creek.
"We'd dock where the fishing
pier is now, get out of the boat
and wait. The fishermen would
be shopping in town and the


grocery truck would bring their
supplies down to the pier then
we'd get a ride back on the gro-
cery truck.
Raulerson's store was there.
There was quite a few stores in
town quite a few dress shops
and hat shops. A lot of nice
places for ladies to shop. I
remember one time I bought
myself a beautiful green hat
there at Raulerson's. His store
was well stocked with beautiful
merchandise.
"When the storm came in
1926, Joe said to the man next
door that they had better take us
wives to the hotel, the water was
coming up so fast. (This was
one month and one day before
Martha was born.) We had an
old Whippet and we got in and
drove to the hotel. As soon as we
got there, people pulled us in.
the car went and we never saw it
again. The storm just took it.
"We could see from the hotel
the waves washing over this
house from about seven in the
morning until four in the after-
noon. We were up on the sec-


ond floor. Then we could see the
windows coming out and the
water was dropping. The wind
died down and the water went
right down just like you poured
it out of a bucket, it went so fast.

"They had a stove upstairs
there in the hotel and some flour
and water and we had a kind of
hoecake made with jelly that we
had for breakfast the next morn-
ing. Then about ten o clock
we saw people begin to walk
into town to see about us. One
fellow that came was Gene
Sebring and also Dr. Mitchell. He
had his old black bag with him
to see if anyone was injured, but
it seemed like either they
drowned or they survived with-
out any serious injury. Late that
evening, they took us to the rail-
road. They had handcars and
took up to Palmdale where they
put us on the train and took us
up to Sebring where they had set
up a camp for us. I"m proud to
say I was a refugee at one time.
People came in by the hun-
dreds."

On a cool and very windy
morning 50-mile-per-hour
winds over 80 Glades and
Palm Beach Health Care Dis-
trict professionals and family
showed their courage as they
walked from Belle Glade to
South Bay. The beautiful
scenery from the Lake Okee-
chobee Scenic Trail gave them
the motivation to make the

Glades Celebration for Martin
Luther King Day. Barbara
Spence was the coordinator
for the weekend events for the
Glades.
There were five categories
for "Heart of the Champion
Trophies" for this event. From
the friendly rivalry of Belle
Glade and South Bay's com-
missioners for the city with the
"Heart of the Champion Tro-
phy", went to the city of Belle
Glade. Mayor Wilson was their
to walk and motivate his city
and accept the trophy. Paho-
kee and Clewiston have asked
to be a part of the event next
year.
The business trophy went
to Briar's Electric, elementary
school to Gove Elementary,


secondary and college to Palm
Beach Community College,
organization to NAACP, and a
special recognition award to
the Belle Glade Fire Depart-
ment for their dedication to
wellness and safety for our
community.
A big thank you to our vol-
unteers who braved the tough
conditions to make this event
possible: Gove Wellness
Team: Shelly Miller, Sebrena
Winn, Lanie Dixon, Denelada
Ascheman, Cody Knight and

trict: Sharon Greene, Ver-

from the Belle Glade starting
point.
Come join us next year for
the FUN! Everyone received
pedometers, exercise bands,
T-shirts and more for taking
their time to represent their
city, school, organization and
business.


Rural Land Stewardship Program


By MaryAnn Morris

Rural Land Stewardship Pro-
gram (RLSP) was established in
state law by the Florida Legisla-
ture first as a pilot program in
2001, and again in 2004 as a
specifically "encouraged" land
use strategy. The law sets up a
process whereby land (and it
can be more than one owner)
10,000 acres to 250,000 acres
can be valued based not only on
its potential for housing and
shopping centers, but also on
the natural ecosystems exist or
can be restored on the land.
According to the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs (DCA) it is a "county
planning process to develop and
protect rural areas."
A RLSP gives a market value
to the uses and features of a
property that the county decides
are of value to the public, but
which currently have little
saleable value in the market.
These features include the pres-
ence of wetlands, endangered
species, recharge areas for
underground aquifers that pro-
vide drinking water, flight paths
for commercial aircraft and mili-
tary training exercises, scenic
view sheds, open space, etc.
Instead of reducing the develop-
ment potential of land, ecologi-
cally valuable features increase
the value of the land developed
under the RLSP. A RLSP does
away with the public cost of
acquiring land for parks, pre-
serves, etc. by protecting open
spaces.
In South Florida the water
issue is a big issue, not only the
periodic flooding, but also hav-
ing enough clean water to sup-
port the population. In the dry
season Floridians often have
water use restrictions. By not
paving large areas with
sprawled-out development,
rainfall can soak back into the
ground.
The City of Moore Haven was
the vision of James A. Moore
and Clewiston, of A. Clewis. The
result of the RLSP also is a small

Citizens' wants were written down and recurring themes were incorporated into revised
plans for the town of Cloud Grove. Attorney Ernie Cox, who works to assist developers with
RLSPs smiles at the results.


town with residential neighbor-
hoods surrounded by farms,
ranches and open space, much
like American history: one
man's vision or perhaps the nat-
ural grouping of individuals
where transportation ways exist.
Yesterday, it was boats on the
Kissimmee River, today the
Turnpike! The Adams
Ranch/Cloud Grove project in
northwestern St. Lucie County is
a RLSP. Of the 16,446 acres,
about 12,000 are reserved to
nature and cattle ranching. The
remaining land will be turned
into a town center, with schools,
churches, homes and parks with
interconnected local roads and
places to walk and bike. Land
planning calls for about 2 mil-
lion square feet of commercial
development in Cloud Grove.
The developers of RLSP proj-
ects are keenly interested in the
thoughts of the people already
living in the area.
"It's called a visioningg'
process," said Anita Jerikins of
Wilson-Miller, land planners for


the developer. (Wilson-Miller is
also the land planner for the Ave
Maria RLSP project in Collier
County.) In a visioning process,
developers hold public forums
to learn the wants of the general
public. The second of these
meetings for Adams
Ranch/Cloud Grove took place
Wednesday, Jan. 25.
"We took all comments, nar-
rowed it down to common
themes. Now we are working
with those themes to incorpo-
rate t hem into the plans for the
community," said Steve Kauf-
man, director of planning for the
Florida Conservancy and Devel-
opment Group (FCDG). FCDG is
a joint venture between two
developers, Lennar and Centex
Homes.
"It's a way to tap into the eco-
nomic engine of growth to drive
conservation," said Ernie Cox
with Gunster, Yoakley & Stewart,
P.A., attorneys for FCDG.
Mr. Sonny Williamson, Okee-
chobee County Citrus grower
and cattle rancher has a history


of involvement with environ-
mental issues. A past SFWMD
board of governors director, Mr.
Williams currently sits on the
board of directors of the Nature
Conservancy.
"I could have intensified the
use of my land, but my dad and I
looked at it, long ago and we just
said we wouldn't and we never
did. We just left some of the land
like it was. I didn't develop more
pasture," he said. Mr.
Williamson said the RLSP is a
good alternative.
"Agricultural land in Florida is
considered to be 'holding land,'
land that's being held for what
I've heard called the 'last crop'
and that's houses. Houses are
the last crop because once
they're built there, they're never
removed," said Mr. Williamson.
"The RLSP gives that value to the
land. It keeps the best of it, lets
the farmer keep on farming.
Rather than sprawling develop-
ment, it creates towns and vil-
lages within."

award ol $S.2.9r million Irom the
U.S. Department of Housing and
Urban Development (HUD) to
fund critical recovery needs fol-
lowing a second unprecedented
hurricane season. The Commu-
nity Development Block Grant
(CDBG) disaster relief funds are
a portion of the $11.5 billion
allocated nationwide by the fed-
eral government following
destructive Hurricanes Dennis,
Katrina, Rita and Wilma.
"I thank President Bush and
the U.S. Departments of Hous-
ing and Urban Development and
Homeland Security for continu-

We Will Help You Design A Building To Meet Your Needs


Using HUD criteria for the
allocation of these recover\
funds, the Florida .
Department of Communitl
Affairs (DCA) will work with
partner agencies to recommend
a plan for distribution. Based on
careful analysis of hurricane
damage assessment data, DCA
will recommend actions to Gov-
ernor Bush that address the
needs of Florida's most impact-
ed communities.
"In partnership with HUD
and local governments, we will
continue to move recovery
funds quickly into the hands of
Florida's hardest-hit communi-
ties," said DCA Secretary Thad-
deus Cohen. "Disaster recovery
is a challenging process, and


DCA is committed to working
1\\ilh I estate arid local l,'-aders to
ensure ,our,,communities are,
rebuilt tro'Ige-i and more resist-'
ant to future damage."
Last year, Florida received
$100.9 million in HUD disaster
relief grants more than 67 per-
cent of all funds awarded nation-
ally to rebuild from the devas-
tating 2004 Hurricane Season.
Funds were distributed to the fif-
teen hardest-hit counties to aid
ongoing recovery efforts. To
date, 160
CDBG recovery projects
throughout Florida are under-
way, including a new special
needs shelter, repaired and
improved wastewater facilities,
economic development proj-


ects, new affordable housing
and n.lit _thon initiatives... :.;r
Recgitly, Governor Bush and
Lt. GoCernor Toni Jennings
announced new hurricane pre-
paredness, response and recov-
ery budget recommendations.
Governor Bush has marked
establishing a "Culture of Pre-
paredness" as a top priority this
year, ensuring Floridians and
Florida local governments take
necessary safety measures as we
prepare for the 2006 Hurricane
Season.

Time flies when you are having fun


A couple of weeks ago I'was
interviewed by several radio sta-
tions in Ireland. Our FlyLady way
of living was being attacked by
one reviewer. She went on to say
that when a woman is stuck with
the housework she doesn't have
time to pursue business or poli-
tics. I rebuked her misconception
of what we do. I told her we are
not Stepford wives, we were tak-
ing care of things so that we could
be anything we wanted to be. I
also told her I was a wife, mother,
grandmother, former elected offi-
cial, business leader and FLYLA-
DY!
If I had not had my house in
order I would have never stepped
into a political arena to give a
woman's opinion on anything. I
would have been trapped and
silenced by the CHAOS in my
home. That would have been so
sad. If I had not had my house in
order I would have never been
able to jump in and help you.
With the CHAOS turned to
peace I was willing and able to
step up and do what my commu-
nity and my internet family need-
ed. My routines were firmly in
place and I was FLYing! I had a full
time job being a county commis-
sioner and almost at the same
time our FlyLady mentoring sys-


tem began. Yet our home still
looked nice and I felt good about
myself and what I was doing.
Have you ever paid attention to
the number of women there are in
a room of elected officials or who
the bosses are? I have studied this
and I believe with all my heart that
our homes keep us trapped. We
don't feel like we have time to do
anything other than what we are
already doing. So we let the world
pass us by while we just try to
keep our heads above water. We
are so busy putting out fires that
we forget about our passions. I
am not saying that housework is a
woman's job; what I am saying it
is the woman who feels bad about
the house when it is not done. We
can't help that this is how we have
been conditioned by society. We
are the nurturers and the nester.
We have been told that we can


have it all; the home, family,
career and a rewarding life! But no
one ever gave us an instruction
manual. We were just expected to
know how to do it all. When we
struggle with one part and the
guilt begins to take over then we
neglect the other areas. We have
all said it, "I don't have time!"
"I don't have time" goes even
deeper than just getting involved
with your community. Those
words rob you of time with your
family and time taking care of you!
Ultimately you are the one who
loses. You are so rushed that you
don't take care of yourself and
eventually get sick because you
are not eating right or not taking a
few minutes to get a drink of
water.
I never dreamed that my pas-
sion for helping you would
become my calling. My home is
my sanctuary; not an albatross
around my neck weighing me
down in shame. Do you have a
passion for something? Have you
pushed it to the back burner wait-
ing for the right time to rekindle
that passion? Do you even
remember what it is? There is
never going to be a right time! We
have to learn how to balance our
lives. We can do this by establish-
ing simple habits and building


them into babystep routines to get
rid of the CHAOS in our lives.
These simple steps will help you
to find the time even if it is only 15
minutes a week.
Please be on the lookout for
that perfectionism monster that is
lurking inside of you. It is the mon-
ster that pushes you past your
limit on any project you start. You
know those marathon sessions of
painting, scrap booking and vol-
unteer work; when they take over
all your time and the whole house.
You get caught up in it and where
does the time go? This is because
you are having fun. Haven't you
ever heard that time flies when
you are having fun! Well why not
get your homework/routines done
first so you can go out and play!
The house, dinner and everything
else will not be stopping you from
following your passion. You will
have it done and be the envy of
everyone who knows you! How
does she do it all??? Your little
secret is safe with me!

your CHAOS; check out the Flylad

ing group at www.FlyLady.net or

Company to give


cabbage
TALLAHASSEE Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson announced Jan. 30
that a Union Springs, Alabama,
company is offering free cab-
bage plants to all third-graders
who are interested in growing
a vegetable plant.
The company, Bonnie Plant
Farm, will deliver the plants to
any school in Florida whose
third-grade students want to
learn the importance of agri-
culture to the nation. The vari-
ety being offered, the O.S.
Cross, produces heads up to
50 pounds, which should be
interesting to young students.
Each student participating in
the experience will also
receive gardening instructions
for cabbage plants and other
vegetable crops, as well.
"I salute Bonnie Plant Farm
for its efforts in teaching young


plants
students the importance of
agriculture in this country," Mr.
Bronson said.
The company said it will
offer a $1,000 scholarship in
Florida, and the winner will be
selected in a random drawing.
Schools whose students are
interested in participating in
the program can call Keith
Pugh, Bonnie Plant Farm's
Customer Services Director, at
1-800-345-3384, by February
15 or request plants online at
http://www.bonnieplants.com
by that date. The company
will deliver the plants and
growing instructions to
schools shortly after requests
are received.

Bad habits can be overcome by good habits


With the billions of dollars that
are spent each year by people hop-
ing to lose weight once and for all,
it is the people who understand
the principle of exchange and
choice that ultimately win the war
on body clutter (excess weight).
These are the people who become
the success stories we love reading
about and secretly hope that one
day, that will be our story, too. This
very simple principle of exchang-
ing one habit (eating ice cream
after dinner every night) for anoth-
er (taking the dog for a walk) has
the ability to tweak your lifestyle
enough to dramatically alter your
weight-and much less painfully
than you would think.
I call mindless eating uncon-
scious grazing. The hand to mouth
exchange that is done with an
almost numbing rhythm, one chip
at a time, one M & M at a time will
pile it on without the participant's
awareness! It almost doesn't mat-
terwhat
we're eating because it's forgot-
ten about after about the fifth or


sixth munch anyway. This style of
eating is reminiscent of the way a
cow spends her day -grazing. In
other words, eating all day with the
jaw constantly moving. The only
difference being of course, that we
have one stomach and choose not
to throw up and re-chew our food
(one would-hope so anyway).
If we are going to lose the
unconscious grazing habit and
replace it with the healthy new
habit of conscious eating, we need
to bring back the old fashioned
value of mealtimes. Good eating
habits are established one meal at
a time. A great starting place is the
family dinner table. All too often
our dinner time eating habits
become yet another place where
the food is fast, "served" in the
back of a car and amidst a frenzy
of activity. Our "dinner conversa-
tion" becomes, "do you want fries
with that?" instead of asking about
everyone's day.
One of my passions is making
sure people understand that their
dinner table is not just a place of


good family dinners, but also a
place of communion for a family
that desperately needs to recon-
nect at the end of a busy day. Too
often the dinner table becomes a
clutter magnet: a place to dump
the mail, the kids' backpacks and
homework after zipping through
the drive-thru. This is a place
where not only conscious eating
can take place, but the good habit
of relationship building and the
mending of heartstrings that may
have been inadvertently cut by a
rushed parent. Study after study
has shown that children that regu-
larly eat together with their par-
ents, have fewer problems (drugs,
sex, poor performance in school)
than their non-eating-dinner-
together-with-their-families,
peers.
We all know that eating in front
of the TV is an almost guaranteed
reservation at The Overeating
Cafe. It also assures that there will
be no conversation (except
maybe a request for salt being
passed or a fleeting comment


made during a commerciall. It is
an interesting phenomenon how
once that habit of the dinner table
is re-established; the food
becomes healthier and more
nutritious and psychologically, the
whole family does better.
Good habits like establishing
regular meallimes, also haie the
advantage of an almost bull in
control mechanism. Instead of
mindless grazing for hours in front
of the TV there is a beginning and
ending point to the meal. The
mindless feeding is turned off
because the real is oer. Such a
simple concept, and vet so \ery'
pov'erful once started Make it a
point to sit together at the dinner
.able at least tm\ice this week and
see what happens

of the company.
According to U.S. Sugar Cor-
porate Communications Director
Judy Sanchez, the core project
team has a very aggressive fast-
track project schedule that
demands that engineering, pro-
curement and construction are
conducted almost in parallel at
the same time that the mill and
refinery are running full speed in
processing this year's cane crop.
There are 68 individuals in man-
agement, engineering and con-
struction making sure the project
stays on track.
In the past year, a great deal of
progress has been made on the
project. Demolition of existing
structures started in March of last
year, allowing the construction
crews to begin work in mid-April
on cane preparation and evapora-
tor building earthworks and foun-
dation structures.
The hurricanes that struck the
Southeast affected some of the
equipment and structural steel
fabrication facilities located in
Louisiana and Texas, putting the
project slightly behind schedule.
However, with the tremendous
momentum the project has at this
stage, they expect that this lost
time will be caught up within the
next couple of months.

Richard Benjamin said that min-
utes were taken during the Jan. 5
meeting. He stated that the adver-
tising for the public meeting was
done. properly, and that he him-
self had not been informed of any
claims that the election was not
legitimate.
"There were minutes taken
during that meeting, and I don't
know why everyone is claiming
that this happened," Mr. Ben-
jamin said. He denied that anyone
made any statement during the
meeting to suggest that elections
would be held on Jan. 19.
According to Mrs. White, no
minutes of the meeting and board
election were taken, so no public
record of the proceedings has
been available for consideration.
Now former board members, "a
lot of good people who have been
there for years," are being left out
of the administrative process.
Public advertisements by sub-
mitted elections organizers
announcing the upcoming elec-
tions were "vague," and did not
specify a date for the elections,
according to protesters.
Current Treasurer Charlene
Ford insists that the appropriate
information was given to the
newspaper for publication, how-
ever. neither the newspaper nor
Ms. Ford could discover the origi-
nal document to provide as evi-
dence. However, the small brief
that was publicized ran for weeks
leading up to the proposed elec-
tions, with an omission on the
time and location of the elections.
Former board members are up
in arms regarding the location of
the election, which allegedly
occurred at Clewiston Middle
School as opposed to the regular
meeting place within the Cougar
locker room. Former board mem-
bers continue to dispute the elec-
tion's validity based on the lack of
evidence that has been provided
to them with regards to the min-
utes that Mr. Benjamin insists
were taken, but have not yet been
produced.
Mr. Benjamin was asked to
provide those minutes for verifica-
tion, however after promising to
return phone calls, did not.
At the same time, the new
board is insisting that no one
called the Jan. 26 meeting, which
was supposed to review the pos-
sibility of new board elections,
however, no one from the

Evaporator capacity of 1,736
tons/hr is equivalent to evaporat-
ing the water in 28 swimming
pools per hour.
To date, approximately 80 per-
cent of the equipment required
for the process has been procured
and 39 percent of the construc-
tion is completed with the majori-
ty of concrete foundation and
structural steel installed. A total of
366,000 man-hours have been
worked on the project without an
accident.
Major pieces of process equip-
ment have been arriving since
mid-October, including the
milling units from Brazil, juice
heaters from France, and evapo-
rator vessels from Louisiana. The
evaporator vessels were shipped
by barge along the Gulf of Mexico
and through Florida via the
Caloosahatchee River to the Port
of Clewiston. Additional deliveries
of specialized equipment are
expected during the next two
months from England, Sweden
and Finland.
Phase I of the project was
completed prior to the crop in
October, 2005 and the majority of
the project will be completed in
Phase II by October, 2006. The
demolition of some of the existing
raw sugar processing facilities will
begin in May of this year, making
room for the new process equip-
ment that will arrive toward the
end of the year. Once installed,
this equipment will complete the
third and final phase of the Break-
through project.


presently elected board showed
up to a meeting they did not call,
and only three people from the
old board showed up to a non-
existent meeting.
Certain members who called
to confirm the Jan. 5 election
meeting date claim to have been
asked how they knew about the
meeting, according to Mrs. White.
Instead of a public announce-
ment for a Jan. 19 election meet-
ing, a release announcing the
newly elected board of directors
was publicized following the Jan.
5 board meeting.
The complete newly elected
Cougar Board was announced as
follows:
Richard Benjamin (Presi-
dent) G .
Ray Tolbert (Vice-president)
Charlene Forde (Treasurer)
Cynthia Johnson (Secretary)
Debbie Denson (Cheer
Coordinator)
Jerome Forde (Athletic
Director)
Kenny Hardey (Board Mem-
ber)
Dan Page (Board Member)
Antwan Harshaw (Board
Member)
The former board of directors,
for 2005, included:
Ben Cutshaw (President)
Charles Felton (Vice-presi-
dent)
Charlene Forde (Treasurer)
April White (Secretary)
Richard Benjamin (Athletic
Director)
*Al Gary (Board Member)
Jerome Forde (Board Mem-
ber)
Melvin Brook (Board Mem-
ber)
Ray Tolbert (Board Member)
Mr. Benjamin stated that a reg-
ular board meeting is scheduled'
for the second week in February.
The meeting will likely take place
Feb. 16 at the Cougar locker
rooms at John Boy Auditorium.
At that time, the minutes from
the previous meeting should be
approved in accordance to state
law regarding public meetings.
.Any duly elected board of direc-
tors are required to follow state
regulations in accordance to open
meeting laws and upon establish-
ing their own by-laws.
It is still unclear at this time
whether or not the elections,
which occurred earlier this month
followed due process of the law
or whether the claims of the old
board are valid, which would
require new elections to take
place.

ERA

Continued From Page 1
acknowledge the possession until
1821.
Florida would see three great
Seminole Wars before she reached
statehood on March 3, 1845, with
the final Seminole War beginning
in 1835 and ended in 1842 with the
false white flag capture of the great
Seminole warrior Osecola. Florida
would again would see bloodshed
in the Civil War.
But in 1881, Florida saw a new
battle this one against Mother
Nature and while this battle would
eventually save the state, it would
also implant the seeds that many
Floridians have to sew until this
very day. In 1886, Florida was fac-
ing bankruptcy, but Hamilton Dis-
ston, an early prototype of today's
ambitious land developer, pur-
chased four million acres from the
state government. One year later,
the dredging between the Kissim-
mee chain and Lake Okeechobee
began and would continue west to
the Gulf of Mexico, with thousands
of agricultural canals being built in
between.
The opening of Florida's water-
ways to steamboat commerce
brought in settlers by the score and
it didn't take long for a fledgling
state to reach the height of its glory,
but the cost of Florida's statehood
security was unforeseen at the
time.
But it is now..
Major projects are underway, to
include restoring the Kissimmee
River back to its perfectly designed
snake-like characteristic and, of
course, the mother of all projects,
the ERA.
For several years the embattled
Florida waterway has been under
attack by all sides and in the spot-
light, but ironically the least funded,
is Lake Okeechobee. During years
of drought, coastal communities
call on the lake as their own per-
sonal reservoir with little to no con-
sideration to the communities who
depend upon the lake for agricul-
ture and tourism. During the wet
seasons, those same coastal com-
munities call on the lake to be a
storage. area of excess water, again
with little to no consideration to the

This issue is surfacing again as
the city of Sanibel and possibly Lee
County prepares to file litigation to
stop the excess water flow into the

Congressman Mark Foley leads an entourage of high-level
officials representing the Army Corps of Engineers and the
South Water Florida Management District, as the federal and
state government work together in an attempt to satisfy east
and west coast citizens, without ignoring the inland agricul-
tural communities.


Caloosahatchee River, which many
say is causing estuaries to die.
While everyone recognizes there is
indeed a potential crisis that needs
to be averted, sides are being taken
as to how it should be handled.
West coast officials are not only
calling for a halt in pulse releases,
but are pointing accusatory fingers
at the agricultural communities
around the lake for causing exces-
sive pollutants to run through the
river. These accusations were not
taken lightly by local, state, and fed-
eral representatives, as well as local
citizens who defend their right to
exist and must do so because offi-
cials in Lee County are calling for
agricultural land to be flooded with
excess water.
A move many at the govern-
mental level have dismissed as
"irresponsible" equally so is the
threatened litigation, which Con-
gressman Mark Foley' (R-Fla.) calls
a terrible "waste of money."
"They have legitimate con-
cerns," said Congressman Foley in
addressing the concerns of citizens
of Sanibel and Lee County. "But
sugar has a right to exist. They have
a right to their businesses and farm
their lands. We are talking about
people's lives. To call for the flood-
ing of the sugar fields is irresponsi-
ble and when I hear them stand on
their golf courses and volunteer to
flood their country clubs, then I'll
pay attention."
Congressman Foley said that
while he acknowledges the need to
slow the flow of water into the estu-

of Second Chance School along
with Superintendent Tom Conner
and Clewiston Police Chief Don
Gutshall.
The Second Chance School is
an opportunity for students to learn
how to carefully consider everyday
problems, and to make better deci-
sions in those situations.
"We're constantly trying to cre-
ate situations in which the students
are forced to make a positive
choice, and hopefully that will be
something they get out of their time
here," said CYDA Resource Officer
and Clewiston Police Sergeant Greg
Henderson.
Second Chance School and
CYDA work in conjunction with the
Hendry/Glades Mental Health Clin-


works department.
The award for Police Officer of
the Year was given to Steve Whid-
don. "It's an honor to present this
award to the family of Steve Whid-
don, who is on duty tonight, in
honor of his work for the city and
for law enforcement," said Mayor
Mali Chamness. "We appreciate
your dedication and sometimes
giving up your dad so he can get
things done- this is for all ofyou,"
said the mayor.
Finally, the Director of the Year,
Police Chief Don Gutshall, was
awarded by City Manager Wendell
Johnson who chose the Director of
the Year, with the help of votes
from the commission. "It's difficult
to choose because all of our direc-
tors are great, and they're all-
deserving of this award, but we can
only give one," said Mr. Johnson,
who presented the award to.
Clewiston Police Chief Don Gut-
shall.
"Don, I want to thank you for
your leadership, and for what you
mean to this city it's truly an
example for all of us," said Mayor


aries, the issue of the agricultural
community being at fault for the
majority of the pollutants, is not an
issue at all.
"There are more chemicals
used to maintain those putting
greens on their golf courses than
anything else," he said. "There are
a lot of intense chemicals on those
greens."
Congressman Foley said at this
point, following through with any
litigation would only be throwing a
wrench into the work that is
already being done to alleviate the
problem. On Jan. 28, Congress-
man Foley and high-level officials
from the Army Corps of Engineers
and the South Florida Water Man-
agement District undertook a tour
that began with the Indian River
Lagoon project, which Mr. Foley
said is, "the kick off the Everglades
Restoration Project." The officials
were looking over the locks in
Ortona as just one part of a long
watery journey that covers the
entire project and will eventually
pay dividends in helping to clean
the Everglades.
"This isn't just a dog and pony
show," said Congressman Foley.
"There is some real work going on
here. The Corps has a lot of projects
they are working on to help and if
we end up having to go to court, it's
just going to slow things down."
According to Dennis Duke, from
the Corps of Engineers, the federal
government is working closely
with the state, South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD), in


rescheduling their pulse releases.
"Once the lake reaches a level
between 13.5 and 15.5 feet, we
look to the district in less of a flood
control mode and more of a water
control mode," said Mr. Duke. "We
are approaching that point now."
Mr. Duke also disagrees with the
finger pointing that is taking place
towards the agricultural communi-
ties around the lake and acknowl-
edged that much of the pollutants
are indeed coming from parts
north of Lake Okeechobee and
within the Calossahatchee Basin
itself.
"The hurricanes of 2004 really
stirred up the sediment on the bot-
tom of the lake," he said. "That is
an issue because of the storms. We
normally have about 150-170 parts
per billion in phosphorous in the
lake. Following the storms we have
600 parts per billion. That is a lot,
but when you look at the numbers,
the biggest problem is actually
coming from the Caloosahatchee
Basin, not Lake Okeechobee."
Mr. Duke said the Corps and the
District will likely be able to modify
their pulse release schedule by
2007 and have in place an appro-
priate plan that will hopefully satis-
fy everyone.
In the meantime, areas west of
Lake Okeechobee are still saber
rattling and calling for litigation.
"Unfortunately there are just
some people that waste more time
in trying to find a villain than they
are willing to spend on a solution,"
said Congressman Foley. "They
have to decide whether it's more
important to them to find an
enemy or help find a solution and
in this case, they are threatening to
waste tax dollars in search of an
enemy. Sanibel will find they are
wasting money and in the long run
will hurt everything we are trying to
resolve. Everyone is responsible
and there should be no finger
pointing. 1 tell people that every
time they flush a toilet, they are
contributing to the problem. Every-
one's responsible and everybody
needs to work together to be part
of the solution."
Accompanying Congressman
Foley on the tour were Assistant
Secretary of the Army John Paul
Woodley, who is responsible for
the supervision of the Army's Civil
Works Program, as well as several
other high-level officials of the fed-
eral and state agencies responsible
for the health and welfare of Flori-
da's unique waterway system.


For Public Works, David Germany (left) was chosen for the
Outstanding Employee of 2005 award. "Well, you're in public
works, which we all know is the best department in the city,"
said Commissioner Jimmy Pittman, who presented the

"This is for all the police depart-

Tigers return from Lemon Bay Invitational


By Mark Young
The Clewiston High School
wrestling team concluded their reg-
ular season this past weekend at
the Lemon Bay Invitational, their
final opportunity to hone their skills
before the all-important district
tournament kicks off postseason
action on Feb. 10.
Despite fielding a very young
Tiger squad this year, the Clewiston
mat warriors have posted some
impressive outings this year and are
expected to send their fair share of
grapplers on to postseason compe-
tition.
Both the junior and varsity
wrestlers made appearances for
this tournament with Clewiston's
Joey Cordova winning a gold
medal in JV competition at the 137-,
pound weight class. Also placing
within the JV competition was
Brandon Caulkins, who took sec-
ond place in the 121-pound divi-
sion and Adam Haire, who placed
fourth at 217 pounds. Cordoval
ended the tourney with four pins
while the JV Tigers downed both
schools from North Port and
Riverdale and all three would go on
to compete in the following day's
varsity action.
The varsity squad found equal
success with a pair of Tiger grap-


piers bringing home the gold.
Byron Holmes grabbed gold in the
114-pound division while Kris
Smith continues his rampage with
another gold medal in the highly
competitive 147-pound class.
Holmes ended the tourney with a
3-0 record, with one pin, one tech-
nical victory, and a close 6-5 match
with his North Port counterpart for
the gold. Smith went 4-0, picking
up a pair of pins and two techni-
cals.
Caulkins JV success carried over
for a second place varsity finish, as
did Haire who finished third, and
Cordova who also finished third in
their individual weight classes. Also
placing for the Tigers were Alston
Edmond who finished second at
162 pounds, Jared Bacallao who
took fourth at 127 pounds,'and
heavyweight grappler Johnny
Brown ended the tournament .in
third.
North Port wouldin the over-
all tournament, but the young
Tigers took home a second place
trophy, finishing over the host team
from Lemon Bay, LaBelle, Clear-
water Central Catholic, Booker,
Kissimmee, Life Academy, and Gulf
Coast.

half of a team to compete against

CLEWISTON The Lady
Tigers of Clewiston High School
ended their regular season sched-
ule at home against the Lady
Cowbgirls of LaBelle on Thursday,
Jan. 26. The two teams faced each
other earlier in the season, with
LaBelle coming away a 54-37 vic-
tory in that match up.
Clewiston's Nicole Pope, who
leads all Lady Tigers with 303 total
points and a 16.9 points-per-game
average on the season, tried to
ignite an otherwise stagnant
offense in an effort to overcome
an 18-4 halftime deficit. LaBelle's
defensive efforts, led by senior
Chelsa Causseaux, were. too
much for the Lady Tiger offense,
which only put up 14 points in
addition to Pope's 15 for the
game.
The Lady Cowgirls thwarted a
14-point fourth-quarter come-


back effort by Clewiston, and held
off the Tigers for a 42-29 victory.
The Tigers had to overcome a
significant amount of adversity
this season, according to Coach
Chris Barraza. After a 6-3 start, the
ladies lost 10 straight games. The
team lost four starters throughout
the season, the results of which
showed in the Lady Tigers' final 6-
13 record.
Despite the season struggles,
the ladies will.have a clean slate
opportunity to push through to
the playoffs. The Lady Tigers will
take on South Ft. Myers in game
one of a district tournament to
determine the top two teams in
Clewiston's 4A-11 basketball dis-
trict.
Clewiston, seeded #7, lost to
South Ft. Myers 56-29 earlier this
year. The South Ft. Myers girls fin-
ished the season 21-4 and are
seeded #2 for the tournament.

Lake Okeechobee fishery takes center stage at summit


Professional and amateur
anglers, business owners and
biologists discussed the decline
in the Lake Okeechobee's fish
population at the sixth and final
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission s
(FWC), Freshwater Fisheries
Summit on Jan 13.
The lack of aquatic vegeta-
tion, forage fish and sport-fish
production spells big trouble for


the Lake Okeechobee fishery.
"We picked up the lowest
number of black crappie since
the program started in 1973,"
said Jon Fury, FWC South Region
freshwater fisheries administra-
tor, about their recent trawl sam-
ples on the lake. "Our capture
rate of black crappie larger than
eight inches was 25 times lower
than average."
In addition, recent elec'trofish-


ing samples done in October for
largemouth bass on the lake
show a lack of baby, or "young-
of-the-year," bass, indicating a
poor reproduction rate for the
fish.
"We collected one young-of-
the-year bass in 16 hours of elec-
trofishing, which is startling,"
Fury said. "Following the lake
recession and drought in 2000,
we collected 163 young-of-the-


year bass."
Based on biologists' experi-
ence from the past recession,
they expect the recovery of
aquatic vegetation and sport-fish
populations to be a multi-year
process. As a result, the FWC
Division of Freshwater Fisheries
Management experts are dis-
cussing possible changes to bag
limits on sport fish in the lake.
Other topics generated strong


input from participants, ardent
about fisheries issues in south
Florida. They included FWC's
outreach and education efforts,
fishing access to areas controlled
by the South Florida Water Man-
agement District, habitat loss and
backfilling of Everglades canals,.
FWC's freshwater fisheries
experts consider Lake Okee-
chobee, Everglades canals,
access to fishable water, habitat


degradation and exotic fish to be
the top five issues affecting south
Florida freshwater anglers.
The FWC will continue work-
ing with anglers on the issues
that affect Florida's freshwater
fisheries, Fury said.
Notes from the summit, as
well as the FWC's Okeechobee
Fisheries Report, are available at

WaterSIP Grant program saving water


This year, WaterSIP, South
Florida Water Management's
Water Savings Incentive Pro-
gram, will distribute up to $1.
million district-wide for projects
that conserve a measurable
amount of water. To date, Water-
SIP has conserved more than 1.4
billion gallons a day. The appli-
cation process is starting now
\ith informational meetings.
"This grant program serves
as a true incentive to improve
conservation efforts in our city


and throughout all of South
Florida," said Irela Bagu6, Gov-
erning Board vice-chair and one
of the program's creators.
"WaterSIP specifically supports
projects that can produce actual
and immediate water savings.
Our cost-share approach helps
turn innovative ideas into reali-

Last year, for example, the
"Roots in the City" non-profit
group from Miami-Dade's Over-

UF offers Beef Cattle short course


GAINESVILLE -The 55th
Annual Florida Beef Cattle Short
Course at the University of Flori-
da will be held May 3-5, at the
Hilton University of Florida Con-
ference Center in Gainesville.
Beef cattle production in
Florida is a dynamic and chal-
lenging industry. Every producer
faces challenges regarding eco-
nomics and marketing, resource
utilization, and management
decisions. These challenges are
on-going processes that necessi-
tate current information for deci-
sion-making. The 55th Annual
Florida Beef Cattle Short Course
addresses these challenges that
the beef cattle producers face on
an everyday basis.
The Wednesday afternoon
program will begin at 1 p.m.
with the focus on marketing and
land resource utilization chal-
i lenges. As the cattle cycle
evolves, knowing where we are
and where the market may be
headed is always pertinent. In
addition, this session will focus
on a timely and important topic
for the sustainability of the beef
cattle industry. The beef cattle
enterprise's land resources and
the continuing issue of land use
and value in Florida will be
'approached on a number of dif-
' i ferent fronts.
The day will conclude with a
reception and Allied Industry
Trade Show, a great chance for
cattlemen and allied industry
representatives to interact and
share information. The program
Thursday addresses some of the
management issues of beef cat-
tle production. Nutrition,
cowherd management, beef
products, and beef product pro-
curement systems will all be
addressed. These basic issues of
beef production will be
approached with improved pro-
duction efficiency in mind.
Lunch will generously be
sponsored by Farm Credit of
North Florida.
The afternoon program
moves outside to utilize the
UF/IFAS,. Beef Teaching Unit to
demonstrate calf processing,
cattle evaluation, and hay pro-
duction techniques. Thursday
evening is capped by the annual
Cattlemen's Steak-Out, an
opportunity to enjoy a prime rib
dinner and time for conversa-
tion. On Friday rnorning, the
program highlights the- Uniteri-
ty of Florida's ongoing dedic_-
tion to beef cattle production.
Two concurrent sessions will
showcase some of the current
research efforts in the Animal
Sciences and Agronomy depart-
ments that relate directly to the
Florida beef cattle producer.
Alternatively, that morning will
be an opportunity for interested
producers to attend a Florida
Beef Quality Producer training
session. Securing the ability and
the resources to maintain the
beef industry in Florida will con-
tinue to be a challenge: Utilizing
new and innovative production
practices to profitably produce
quality beef cattle and beef
products will be an important
key to maintaining the opportu-
nity we. have to enjoy a profes-
sion and lifestyle in the beef
industry.
Registration cost is $90 per
participant before April 21, and
includes a copy of the Beef Cat-
tle Short Course proceedings,
trade show, refreshments, and
Steak-Out ticket. Complete infor-
mation, schedules, and registra-

Songs and stories of the Civil War


South Florida Community
College is bringing the past alive
with Bobby Horton as he pres-
ents "Songs & Stories of the Civil
War" on Monday, Feb. 6, at 7:30
p.m. in the SFCC University Cen-
ter Auditorium, Highlands Cam-
pus, Avon Park. The Bobby Hor-
ton performance marks the
second installment in the SFCC
Cultural Programs Speakers
Series for the 2005-06 season.
According to Southern Living
magazine, "His work has always
been commended for its quality,
humanity, and authenticity."
Dressed as a 19th century per-
former, using period musical
instruments, Horton explores the
stories of both the North and
South through the music they
loved. Each song is placed in con-
text with historical background
and portrays the struggles, hopes,
and fears of Americans during
this long historical conflict.
These songs and stories tell of
families left behind, fallen com-
rades, the hope of going home,
and the pride, bravery, and patri-
otism of the volunteers who
answered their country's call.
This is not just a performance for


Civil War buffs but for anyone
who loves great music, inspired
storytelling, and an evening of
unforgettable entertainment.
A seasoned performer, Bobby
Horton is a multi-instrumentalist,
composer, producer, and music
historian. For more than 30 years,
he has performed with the musi-
cal-comedy group, Three On A
String. He has also produced and
performed music scores for eight
Ken Burns films, including The
Civil War and Baseball. His series
of recordings of authentic period
music has been acclaimed by his-
torical organizations and publica-
tions throughout America and
Europe.
Bobby Horton: Songs and Sto-
ries of the Civil War is co-spon-
sored by Sevigny and Johnson
Eye Care, Highlands Today, and
the News-Sun.
Tickets are available through
the SFCC Box Office, Monday
through Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30
p.m., at ext. 7178, at 863-453-
6661, 465-5300, 773-2252, or 494-
7500, or at 863-784-7178. Tickets
will also be sold at the door the
evening of the performance.


Special to INI/South Florida
Community College
Bobby Horton presents
songs and stories of the
Civil War.


Crist: Beware of flood-damaged vehicles


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist issued a con-
sumer alert cautioning Floridians
against buying used vehicles that
may have been flood-damaged by
Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and
Wilma. As many as 600,000 vehi-
cles throughout Louisiana, Missis-
sippi, Alabama and Florida may
have been affected by the storms
and are now being shipped to
other states by auto wholesalers.
A flooded car is the personal
property of the owner and it is not
illegal to sell it, but both the buyer
and the seller should be aware that
the car has been flooded. Some
sellers may try to scam the buyer by
concealing the car's water dam-
age, and the buyer would end up
with a car that has serious prob-
lems caused by the floodwater.
"Citizens should be extra careful
when buying an automobile, espe-
cially a used car," said Crist. "By
concealing the damage, unethical
individuals can pass a car off as a
good .bargain, when in fact it is
nothing more than a water-soaked
lemon. If a deal seems too good to
be true, it probably is."
Safety is one of the primary con-
cerns when buying a flood-dam-
aged car. An unsuspecting buyer
could be stuck with a car that does


"Citizens should be extra careful when buying
an automobile, especially a used ca. By conceal-
ing the damage, unethical individuals can pass a
car off as a good bargain, when in fact it is noth-
ing more than a water-soaked lemon. If a deal
seems too good to be true, it probably is."

Charlie Crist, Attorney General


not function properly and could
place them and their loved ones in
serious danger.
Common problems with flood
cars include engines, anti-lock
brake systems and airbag systems
that may malfunction, ruined elec-
trical components and mold and
mildew throughout the air condi-
tioner and heating systems.
Several services are available for
consumers and auto dealers to
check Vehicle Identification Num-
bers (VINs) to help determine if a
particular vehicle has a flood-dam-
age record. The National Insurance
Crime Bureau has compiled a data-
base of vehicles affected by the hur-
ricanes, which can be searched by
the public free of charge. The data-
base is available at www.nicb.org.


Carfax is also helping protect
unsuspecting buyers by making all
of its flood information available to
consumers and dealers free of
charge atwww.carfax.com/flood.
Crist said consumers and deal-
ers should be wary of someone try-
ing to sell a car for well below the
retail value. One obvious sign is a
moldy smell from the seats and car-
peting, although determined rip-off
artists can conceal this through
new carpeting and interior compo-
nents. Sand, silt and salt under the
carpeting is another indication that
the car may be a flood car. Buyers
should also check the engine com-
partment, trunk, and inner doors
for silt and be aware of any electri-
cal problems that recur or change
on a daily basis.
