Second round of vision process


Final workshop
scheduled for April

By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON The follow-
up meeting of the workshop for
the Hendry County Visioning
Process was held Thursday,
March 9 at the John Boy Audito-
rium, where hundreds of ideas
for the future of the county have
been introduced and discussed.
Among the categories of ideas


discussed by citizens, city and
county governments, and busi-
ness leaders were community
development, housing, zoning,
transportation, environment,
health, education, economy, cul-
ture, recreation, and governance.
The ideas were each present-
ed as originally submitted by
participants in last month's ini-
tial workshop, and the extensive
list of ideas were prioritized and
narrowed down for further dis-
cussion at the final meeting for
the visioning process on April


13 at the LaBelle Civic Center.
Facilitators Chris Pederson
and Tom Taylor have adminis-
tered the workshops and pre-
pared the collected data
describing the ideas of mem-
bers of the community. The
visioning process is being
designed and facilitated by the
Florida Conflict Resolution Con-
sortium, a state university serv-
ice center that conducts consen-
sus-building projects around
the state.

to define specific goals based on
the needs and desires of mem-
bers of the community. Partici-
pants in Thursday's meeting
were allowed to amend those
goals, which had been present-
ed along with the body of ideas
for future projects in the county.
"(The citizens) would like
development in Hendry County
to be thoughtful, attractive, and
compatible with the rural char-
acter and charm of the county,"
stated one objective, which was
designed to summarize the


overall desired result of devel-
opment to occur in the coming
years.
The categorical objective was
followed by the submitted ideas
for development, which included
subheadings such as planning,
building regulation, infrastruc-
ture, commercial development,

opment, affordable housing, and
general housing.

Additional
businesses still await
repairs, relocation

By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON A local den-
tal care provider has finally
opened its doors, after suffering
extensive damage during Hurri-
cane Wilma on Oct. 24.
The offices of Dr. Alan Wei-
land, D.D.S., M.A.G.D. were
severely damaged by the hurri-
cane, blowing off a great portion
of the office roof and completely
soaking the building's interior.
Extensive repairs and recon-
struction, as well as replacement
of dental equipment kept the
longtime Clewiston dentist out of
business for more than four
months.


Roof replacement was com-
pleted quickly by Roofing For
Less, which covered the exposed
building before major rainfall fol-
lowing the storm could cause
further damage.
In addition to roof repairs, the
office had to undergo extensive
interior wall and flooring
replacements, which were com-
pleted by local workman Gary
Hartman.
"We had a lot of damage, but
we were able to get a lot of things
repaired soon," said Dr. Weiland,
during his first week back in
business. "We were fortunate
enough to have quick emer-.
gency repairs to the roof, and I
had the whole family in here
cleaning up after the storm. We
even got help from some
patients of mine," he said.

Engagement


Marta Baez
Marta Baez was born in
Artemisa, Cuba Feb. 24, 1931
and married Israel Baez, Sr.
March 27, 1951. In October of
1963, the bold couple made a
very risky decision to escape out
of communist Cuba with her
two sons, Israel Jr. and Juan, as
well as her brother, Joaquin
Alvarez and other family mem-
bers and friends. They arrived
safely in Texas where they
resided for four months before
moving to Belle Glade in 1964.
During the 42 years she lived
in Belle Glade, she was not just a
great mother and a great wife,
but she was also an ambassador
for Belle Glade, telling friends
and family members how much
she loved this town.
Marta acquired two daugh-
ters when Israel and Cindy (Hen-
ley) were married in 1975 and
when Juan and Ana (Gomez)
were married in 1979. In 1981,
she became a grandmother with
the birth of Israel III (Boo) and
Carla Ceellia. Her third grand-
child, Jay, was born in 1984 and
in 1985, she enjoyed the arrival
of her fourth grandchild, Pre-
ston.
Through the years, Marta
enjoyed watching her grandchil-
dren become young adults. On
Feb. 25, 2006, after fighting res-
piratory problems for several
years, Marta embarked on
another adventure in life, leaving
her family, friends, and Belle
Glade and moved to be with the
Lord where she is resting and
not suffering. She will be
missed.

Letters to the Editor


Vision Hendry County
2015: Setting priorities
Dear editor:
The second Public Workshop
for Vision Hendry County 2015
was held in Clewiston March 9,
in the John Boy Auditorium. An
energetic group of Clewiston
and LaBelle citizens worked
through a comprehensive ses-
sion selecting those priorities
important to them and based on
input from the Clewiston and
LaBelle meetings last month.
Following a review of our
treasures and citizen desires, as
reported from results from the
February meetings, the group
went straight to the core of this
meeting. Participants were
asked to evaluate a series of
goals and objectives beginning
with a Development Goal for
planning, building regulations,
infrastructure, commercial
development, redevelopment,
residential development, afford-
able housing, and all housing.
The next series included
transportation, natural environ-
ment, health, education, econo-
my, economic development,
culture, recreation, community,
and ending with governance. All
goals were rated for support and
objectives were rated by the
most important of each of the
participants. Results from this
meeting will provide input for
the Thursday, April 13 meeting
where prioritizing the objectives

Standing up for rights
Florida citizens have the con-
stitutional right to keep and bear
arms for self-protection and
Florida law specifically guaran-'
tees the right to transport and
carry firearms in private vehicles
for lawful purposes. Those
rights are well established in law
and in public policy.
Yet some corporate giants are
violating those individual rights,
claiming a constitutional right to
control business property, when
no such blanket right exists.
Corporate lobbyists have even


claimed businesses have the
right to ban any personal proper-
ty inside private vehicles from
"guns" to "Bibles" to
"bananas." That is nonsense.
Government, at all levels,
heavily regulates business prop-
erty use from zoning to building
codes to public accommoda-
tions and laws against bigotry
and discrimination. This is no
different.
SB-206 and HB-129 were filed
to protect the individual, consti-
tutionally guaranteed rights of
citizens. The legislation does not
interfere with the employer-
employee relationship except to
stop illegal searches of private
vehicles and protect employees,
who want to exercise a constifu-
tional right, from abusive anti-
gun corporations bent upon dis-
criminating against them.
The right to transport and
carry firearms in a vehicle means
you can store that firearm locked
in your vehicle in a parking lot
when you go grocery shopping,
to the doctor's office, to a movie,
to visit a sick friend in the hospi-
tal, to the dry cleaners, to the
shoe store or anywhere else peo-
ple commonly travel.,
Constitutional rights do not
end, and, indeed must not, when
you drive into a commercial
parking lot. And business prac-
tices and policies do not super-
sede the constitutional or statu-
tory rights of individual
customers and employees.
Courts have ruled that "an at-
will employee may not be termi-
nated for exercising constitu-
tional rights." But big
businesses in Florida are trying
to place themselves above the
law and above the Constitution.
And, tragically, some are report-
ed to have executed searches of
private vehicles and fired
employees for exercising a.con-
stitutional right.
This bill stops that illegal,
abusive, and clearly unconstitu-
tional conduct.
The cold hard truth Is, gun
free parking lots are safe havens
for criminals. Businesses that
.ban guns in private vehicles in
parking lots are placing the lives
of their customers and employ-
ees in danger. That conduct is
reprehensible and must be pro-
hibited.
Passage of SB-206 and HB-
129 would put an end to corpo-
rate giants trampling the Free-
dom of law-abiding citizens who
take responsibility for their own
safety and by its practices,
extorting employees by forcing
them to chose between their
jobs or their lives.

Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Hello, my
name is Jeanette Relloux. I have a
very recent change in employment,
which takes me away on a very
regular basis. I am a personal assis-
tant to a CEO, who travels nearly
every weekend. In accepting this
new position, I negotiated an
understanding that my two Yorkies
Bongo and Congo get to go where I
go. They come to work with me
everyday, and now that is going to
mean planes, and hotels pretty
much every weekend. What do I
need to prepare for them with trav-
el? I'll guess I will have to pack for
them too? Should I sedate them?
Do they need special travel docu-
ments? All this travel will .be with
private and corporate jets. I will be
able to have them in carriers with
me on the plane at all times. Thank
you! I know you bring your dogs to
work with you, and maybe a bit of
traveling too? I thought you would
have some good advice for me.
Jeanette.
A: Hello Jeanette, sounds like
you have a wonderful exciting new
position congrats! Okay, let's
take your questions step by step.
Yes, you will have to pack them
a suitcase!


Doc Savvy
Bring toys, blankets, food dish-
es, food, and treats, which will
keep them right at home. It is
important to be consistent with the
type of food they eat. This will avoid
diarrhea, Which is associated with a
change of diet. Consistency will
help them to get used to the travel
lifestyle too. Look how great this is,
they have you 24/7, they have each
other, and they will have all the stuff
they are used to having at home. I
think they will acclimate right away.
Oh and make sure you have any
medications, heartworm preven-
tion, flea medications, bathing and
grooming products too.


Choose an airline-approved
kennel for them to travel in. Make
sure it is cozy for them too. Write
clearly with a permanent marker:
Your name, their names, address,
and phone numbers. This way you
will be properly identifying their
kennels.
Now, the plane part. Sedatives
may be a good thing at first. This
will help them be okay with the
sights and sounds of being on a
plane. Talk to your veterinarian
about Acepromazine. This will be a
good choice of sedative to give
Bongo and Congo about one hour
before you board the plane. This
way when the pill wears off, they
will be okay with being on a plane.
I would try this for the first 2-3 times
getting them on a plane, then see
how they do without it. In no time
you will see they will be real pros!
Travel documents or, health cer-
tificates is mandatory for air travel
with a pet. All commercial and pri-
vate airlines require this, especially
for international travel. It is a docu-
ment, which is filled out and signed
by a federally accredited veterinari-
an. Not all veterinarians are accred-
ited. It is a test or series of tests,
which vets have to pass in order to


write health certificates. My health
certificates are standard forms from
the USDA, and are good for 30 days
domestic travel. Sounds like you
will have to get a new one about
every 3-4 weeks.
As long as Bongo and Congo
are current on their vaccinations,
are tested negative for internal and
external parasites, are on heart-
worm and flea prevention, have a
current rabies tag, and are free of
any obvious disease, they can get
health certificates. Oh yes and very
important too Jeanette, get them
microchips for identification. This
will help identify them in case they
are lost. Make sure too they have
their leashes and collars with their
tags on!
Keep in mind that you may trav-
el to a cooler destination at times,
so they may need a new wardrobe
and accessories! That's the fun
part!
Okay Jeanette! I hope that
helps. Good luck, and bon voyage
to you, Bongo and Congo!
Take care, Doc Savvy.

You can live as a victim or the victor


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I remember my father asking
me when I was growing up and
wanted something, "How are you
going to pay for it?" He asked it
about a radio transmitter when I
had my first amateur radio license
at age 13, about wanting a car,
about wanting to go to school.
He taught me to plan ahead, to
think about what was going to be
the implication of my actions today
and how it would affect tomorrow.
Of course there were always unex-
pected expenses or setbacks, but
they might be considered along the
way. When I ran out of money and
scholarships, I went to work and
saved money until I had enough to
return to school. When I had an
unexpected car accident, I pur-


chased another car and added sav-
ings to offset the difference in price
between my old one and new one.
I like to plan ahead, consider
any contingencies that come up
and take them into account as best
as I can. Jesus was talking to a
crowd and says, "Suppose one of
you wants to build a tower. Will he
not first sit down and estimate the
cost to see if he has enough money
to complete it? (Luke 14:28)."
He also speaks of a king who is
about to go to war against anoth-
er king (v.31ff) and asks if he
won't first sit down and consider
whether he is able to win oth-
erwise send a delegation while
the other is a long way off and ask
for terms of peace.
There is planning involved and
there are contingencies to be con-
sidered. Jesus speaks of these
things in relation to being a disci-


pie you have to count the cost
and know that there will be a cost,
then be willing to pay the cost. I
have heard that the average
American is $10,000 in debt and
when I served on a board of direc-
tors for a homeless shelter, I
learned that the average Ameri-
can is two and one half paychecks
away from being homeless.
I sat down with a young man
who was doing his community
service at my church and reflected
when he told me about a deal he
was offered on another car. He told
me about the monthly payments,
the trade-in on his old car, the
down payment and what the new
car would have. I asked him a
question, "Will your current car
last you another two years?" He
said, "Yes" and we sat down
together, figuring out the sum of
the monthly payments, adding in


the down payment, looking at the
depreciation on his old car over the
next two years and when we got
done, he was shocked.
The new car was going to cost
him about $10,000. Because things
are not paid for on the spot, many
people simply don't think of what
something really is going to mean
for the years to come. I believe in
planning; in my giving, in my pur-
chases, in my ordering my actions
to include what it will mean in the
weeks, months or years ahead.
There is a cost to everything -
not planning brings a higher cost
than many ever consider or even
refuse to look at. The disciple
counts the cost and then goes
ahead knowing he can obtain the
spiritual victory that it brings. The
good steward counts the cost too
- not only in his matters of faith
but in his daily life as well.


The Devil made me do it yeah right


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I read about a man who was
suing a hospital. A doctor had per-
formed staple surgery on his
stomach to help him lose weight.
A couple of days after his opera-
tion, he raided the hospital refrig-
erator and stuffed himself with
everything he could find. This tore
open the staples and forced
another surgery. He was suing the
hospital for having a refrigerator
near his room. He claimed the
temptation was too great and that
his complications were not his,
but the hospital's fault!
Since the Garden of Eden,
humans have made it a regular
practice to pass the buck. Do you
remember Adam and Eve? God
asks what's going on, Adam
responds by admitting that he ate
the forbidden fruit, but it wasn't


his fault. "The woman You gave
me, she made me eat that fruit." Is
Eve responsible? Not according to
her! Eve's response is, "The ser-
pent deceived me, and I ate."
"It's his fault. It's her fault. It's
their fault." "It's not my fault. The
devil made me do it." Since the
beginning of time our first
instincts have been to blame oth-
ers for our own failures. Instead of,
accepting responsibility, we claim
we are victims.
There is truth in the statement
that each of us is either a part of
the problem or a part of the solu-
tion to everything we confront.'
We can choose to blame all of our
problems on someone else and
become.a part of these problems,
or we can take responsibility for
our lives and seek to fulfill the pur-
pose for which God created us
and become part of the solution.
Having problems with a rela-


tionship? It will go much better if
we accept responsibility for our
part of the relationship, admit our
mistakes and do what we can to
make it better. If things are not
going well at work, why not try
changing the things we can and
focus on doing the best job we
can? Chances are that even if
things at work don't get better, our
outlook will. If we are not satisfied
with what is happening in our
church, rather than just complain-
ing, we can do our part to make
things better by taking an active
part in the ministry and making
sure we say only things which will
go to strengthen our life together
as a congregation.
When we become part of the
solution, God becomes much
more visible in our life and in our
hearts.
We are now in the season of
Lent, that period of the church


year that calls us to a time of self-
examination as We approach East-
er. God invites each of-us to daily
take stock of our lives and right
our wrongs not only to Him,
but also to those we have hurt or
have disagreements with. The
challenge is to seek to find ways
we can become a part of the solu-
tion to as many of the human
problems we encounter directly
or indirectly as we can.
The devil may have made us do
it, but thank God we have a way
out of it. When we look in a mir-
ror, we see the person who holds
the solutions to the most of the
problems we face in life not as
one lone superman or super-
woman, but as God's child with
His Spirit in us; who can love, for-
give, care, show mercy, and share
joy!


Spanish-speaking Americans can know family


Calling on all Spanish-speak-
ing Americans to "know their
family history," U.S. Surgeon Dr.
General Richard H. Carmona,
announced the availability of an
updated version of a free, com-
puterized tool in Spanish,
designed to help Spanish-speak-
ing families gather their health
information. In addition, he
praised the National Council of
La Raza's Institute for Hispanic
Health (NCLR/IHH) for develop-
ing its own family history con-
sumer outreach program for
Spanish-speaking Americans
based, on the framework made
available by the Surgeon Gener-
al's Family History Initiative.
"I encourage all families to
take time to collect important
health history information that
can benefit all family members,"
Dr. Carmona said. "Even with all
the high-tech tests, medicines
and procedures available in
today's modern health-care set-
ting, family health history
remains the cornerstone of our
efforts to prevent disease and
promote personal health. It's
clear that knowing your family
history can save your life."
To help families organize
their health histories, the Sur-
geon General developed "My
Family Health Portrait," a com-
puterized, information-organiz-
ing tool that makes creating a
family health history easier and
more efficient for both patients
and health-care professionals.
Now, a new, free, Web-based
version of the tool is available in
Spanish. It organizes a family's
health history into a printout that
people can then take to their
health-care professional to help
determine whether they are at
higher risk for disease. The Span-
ish version of the tool is available


on the Internet at https://family-
history.hhs.gov/spanish.
The tool guides users through
a series of screens that helps
them compile information for
their. family members on six
common diseases: heart dis-
ease, stroke, diabetes, colon
cancer, breast cancer and ovari-
an cancer, as well as information
about any other conditions that
are of particular interest to the
family. The tool allows users to
go back and add more informa-
tion as it becomes available.
NCLR/IHH has provided 33
"promotores de salud" (lay
health educators) with linguisti-
cally and culturally appropriate
materials to communicate the
value of genetic information,
and its relation to family history,
to Spanish-speaking communi-
ties in an effort to improve their
health. NCLR/IHH launched the
yearlong education and training
program in spring 2005.
The "promotores de salud"
who attended training sessions
represented Mexican American,
Central American and South
American communities, and
their backgrounds ranged from a
family doctor to a former priest.
All of them will take the materi-
als and the lessons they learned
from the "Genetic Inheritance:
Knowing Your Family Health His-
tory" program back to schools,
churches and clinics in their
communities and conduct their
own sessions about the impor-
tance of understanding family
history and genetics as a disease
prevention tool.
Said Liany Elba Arroyo, IHH
director for NCLR. "Our research
shows that Latinos are largely
unaware of the relationship
between genetics and health. By
linking the concept of genetics to


family health history in this pilot
project, we can promote greater
understanding among immi-
grant communities," said Liany
Elba Arroyo, IHH director for
NCLB.

checkpoints established


Recognizing the danger pres-
ent to the public by defective vehi-
cle equipment, Florida Highway
Patrol troopers will concentrate
their efforts on vehicles being
operated with defects, such as bad
brakes, worn tires, and defective
lighting equipment, at select
checkpoints through Glades and
Hendry Counties.
In addition, attention will be
directed towards drivers who
would violate the driver license
laws of Florida. The patrol has


found these checkpoints to be an
effective means of enforcing the
equipment and driver license laws
of Florida, while ensuring the pro-
tections of all motorists.

, mp shotgun its direction.
The birdshot hit John William


Holroyd, 39, of Big Pine Key in the
right cheek, forehead, right hand
and in the corner of his left eye. The
injuries were not believed to be life
threatening. The shot also hit Ter-
rence Gary Van Arkel, 65, a winter
resident of Big Pine Key; who was
wearing several layers of thick
clothing and was not seriously
injured.
The men were about 200 feet
away from Rutherford when he
fired the shot.

In the 2004-05 hunting season,
there were eight hunting accidents
statewide, including two fatalities.
FWC hunter safety experts
remind hunters of three tips to
keep them safe during turkey sea-
son:
Properly identify your target.
Don't shoot at a noise.
Don't wear red, white and
blue, the colors seen on a turkey.
Don't shoot at a hen call as it
may be another hunter.

Marie Clements Box remembers early Okeechobee Escaped reptilian pets


By Twila Valentine
Edited by MaryAnn Morris
From 1977 until her death in
2003, Independent Newspapers of
Florida was privileged to have on
staff a superb writer and historian,
Twila Valentine. Mrs. Valentine
wrote much about the history of
the people and places around Lake
Okeechobee and about the lake
itself. Together with Okeechobee's
Betty Williamson, President of the
Okeechobee Historical Society, she
co-authored a book, now in its sec-
ond printing, "Strolling down
Country Roads in Okeechobee."
The following story came from
an interview Mrs. Valentine had
with Mrs. Marie Clements Box
dated July 1988.
Marie Clements Box was the
daughter of Adeline Raulerson and
Clifford James Clements. Her
Grandparents were Peter and
Louisiana Raulerson. They were
the first to settle in what would
become Tantie and then Okee-
chobee in 1896. Mrs. Box said he
moved from Basinger for more
grazing land for his cattle.
"My grandmother was very
lonely. There was not another per-
son around here at all. She used to
go out and look down the road
every day to see if she could see a
little bit of dust. If she did, she knew
someone was coming. They put
up everybody that came here.
There was no town at all. She was
just so glad to have company, it did-
n't matterwho it was.
"My youngest uncle was the
first white man born here, Connie
Raulerson. When he was a little


toddler, my grandmother put a bell
on him because panthers were so
plentiful they would run right
through their yard and he had a
habit of running out of the yard
where she couldn't see him.(The
Raulerson home was on the west
side of what is now Parrott
Avenue.)
"I won't mention any names,
but I remember my grandmother
and Aunt Faith telling me about
this. One night, way in the middle
of the night, they heard their cattle
lowing and they knew something
was wrong. My grandfather got
Uncle Lewis and several of the
men, (they had a good idea of
what was happening) and went
out to where the cattle were. The
cattle were all scattered. There
were thieves after them. My grand-
mother was so frightened that my
grandfather would shoot some-
one. But, they got away. This sort of
thing happened all the time.
"This man, who was doing the
rustling, wanted everything around
here. He was quite jealous of my
grandfather and the cattle he had.
He wanted them, too. He hired a
man to kill my grandfather.


Special to INI/www.lamartin.com
These horsemen are posed with the Raulerson homestead on
what is now S. Parrott Avenue. Mrs. Box's uncle, Connie Rauler-
son (on left) was the first white man born in Okeechobee.


"One night, at my grandparents' house, they
heard their hogs squealing and my grandfather
took a lantern out to see what was happening.
There was a big black bear on top of a hog, eat-
ing it alive! Black bears were very plentiful and
so were panthers at that time."
Twila Valentine


"They were camped out in the
woods and this man was in the
camp. Later on, the man told my
grandfather what had happened.
My grandfather told him, 'We
knew what you were there for and
every eye was on you.'
"The man told my grandfather,
'You have treated me so well, I just
could not do it.'


She recalls another story about
the dangers of those early days:
"One night, at my grandparents'
house, they heard their hogs
squealing and my grandfather took
a lantern out to see what was hap-
pening. There was a big black bear
on top of a hog, eating it alive!
Black bears were very plentiful and
so were panthers at that time."


to be curbed by law


ALTAMONTE SPRINGS A
proposed bill to regulate reptiles
is a giant step toward protecting
Florida's citizens and natural
landscapes from the dangers of
invasive, non-native animals.
Rep. Ralph Poppell (R-Vero
Beach) proposes to expand a
current law regulating poison-
ous snakes to regulating other
potentially invasive reptiles. The
change will help Florida battle
the invasion of species, such as
pythons, monitor lizards and
iguanas, which is overtaking
many neighborhoods and natu-
ral areas as a result of accidental
and intentional releases.
Rep. Poppell's bill would
allow the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion to establish a list of reptiles
that would require a permit
before they could be bought, dis-
played, housed or transported,
including in the pet trade.
"We are supportive of this
effort," said Doria Gordon, the
Nature Conservancy's associate
director of conservation science.
"The Conservancy is concerned
about the impacts these non-
native species are having on
Florida's plants, animals and
habitats. We support approach-
es that prevent non-native, inva-
sive animals from being released
into the wild, thus avoiding
unwanted impacts and costly
and cumbersome control pro-
grams."


Ms. Gordon said the regula-
tions should also help land man-
agers meet their conservation
goals and save taxpayers money.
"This is a great step in the larger
challenge of providing agencies
with improved invasive species
management tools. I hope future
legislation addresses similar
issues we have with other non-
native, invasive species," she
said.
When released, non-native
species often take over a habitat.
From a few released pets in Boca
Grande in the 1970s, Mexican
spiny-tail iguanas have increased
in the last five years from 2,000
to 10,000 on Gasparilla Island,
more than double the island's in-
season human population. Lee
County is considering an iguana
removal tax, allowing control
efforts to begin as early as this
summer.
The Nature Conservancy is a
leading international, nonprofit
organization that preserves
plants, animals and natural com-
munities representing the diver-
sity of life on Earth by protecting
the lands and waters they need
to survive. By working through
funding from the voter approved
Florida Forever program and the
generosity of our donors the
Conservancy has helped protect
more than 1.1 million acres in
Florida since 1961. For more

Hendry/Glades area, is presently

Pre-kindergarten
program offered
In 2002, Florida voters passed
an amendment providing for
free, voluntary pre-kindergarten


opportunities for all children who
turned four on or.before Sept. 1
and reside in the state of Florida.
The school district will offer a
300-hour program during the
2006 summer. The program will
run from May 31 through July 28
from 7:50 a.m.-3:10 p.m. The
summer programs will be offered
at Eastside Elementary in Clewis-
ton and at Country Oaks Elemen-
tary in Labelle. There will not be
any transportation provided by
the district. This is a free program
for' Florida families. Research
demonstrates that high-quality
preschool education can sub-
stantially -increase children's
chances of succeeding in school
and in life. Children who attend
high quality pre-kindergarten
programs are less likely to be
held back a grade, less likely to
need special education and more
likely to graduate high school. If
you are interested in signing up
your child for the VPK program
please go to the United Way
House at 17 Ft. Thompson Street,
Labelle. (863) 675-8383.

Tuesday Tritt was promoted
to the position of Vice President
of Commercial and Residential
Real Estate Loans. "We are
always happy to promote from
within and are pleased to recog-
nize Tuesday's hard work and
dedication as a loan officer,"
said First Bank President and
CEO Miller Couse.
Mrs. Tritt has been with First
Bank since 1987.
Mr. Couse also announced
the hiring of Roberto Silva to
Vice President of Residential
Real Estate Loans.'
"Roberto has been a loan offi-


cer for many years in the Clewis-
ton community and we are glad
to have him join the First Bank
family," said Mr. Couse.
Until the main office remod-
eling is completed, Mr. Silva will
be working at the Berner Road
office. He asks that "folks come
in to see him about loans" and
extends a special invitation to
Spanish speaking customers
seeking to buy a home in the
Glades.
First Bank also announced

Wilma

Continued From Page 1
Major problems encountered
by many hurricane victims,
including roof damage and
soaked interiors. Mold has not
been a problem for Dr. Weiland,
as the office was cleaned out
and temporarily sealed relatively
quickly.
The reopening was delayed,
however, as the office had to wait
for equipment replacements,
which were finally completed on
Feb. 6.
Now that the building is secure
and all of the dental equipment
has been restored, Dr. Weiland
and his staff are ready for business.
"Everything is pretty much
back to normal," he said.
According to the dentist, total
insured damages to building struc-
ture and equipment replacement
amounted to more than $180,000.
A major portion of the total was for
dental equipment, accounting for
more than $130,000 in repair and
replacement costs.
Other local businesses are still
awaiting building repairs and relo-
cations following last year's devas-
tating hurricane. The chiropractic
offices of Dr. Edward Vickers are
still closed during repairs, and do
not expect to be open again until
the first or second week of April.
Patients will be notified when the
office is to be reopened and
appointments will be scheduled at


that time.
The Clewiston News, Glades
County Democrat and Belle Glade
Sun newspaper offices are current-
ly relocated to the Caloosa Belle
office in LaBelle, as a new office
location is being sought in the
Clewiston area.
The newspapers will not be
returning to their old location, but
have secured new office space.
Currently, the office is being wired
to fit the needs of the staff and a
move is expected in the near
future. An announcement will be
released as soon as arrangements
are finalized.
"This has been a rough ride for
so many people in our communi-
ty," said News Editor Mark Young.
"We certainly can relate to the
struggles of our fellow community
members and many businesses
that are still trying to get back on
their feet after Wilma's arrival. It's
good to see many businesses like
Dr. Weiland get back on their feet
and we sympathize with those still
trying. We hit the ground running
after the storm, but it's been a long
run and it will be nice when we
finally land back in our own com-
munities."
Dr. Weiland is also pleased to
be back in service for his commu-
nity.
"It could have been a lot
worse," said Dr. Weiland. "I'm
glad to be back to full services, and
we are looking forward to seeing a
lot of returning faces."

visioning process stated that
"open spaces and natural areas
contribute significantly to our
quality of life in Hendry County
and we would like the natural
environment to continue to pro-
vide enjoyment for ourselves
and future generations."
The objective did not initially
address the crucial need to clean
up the lake and improve regional
water.quality. However, a specif-


from the tournament will pro-
vide a four-year scholarship to a

senior, to be used at any college

Dairies reduce phosphorus in runoff


By Audrey Blackwell
OKEECHOBEE Four area
dairy farms are making progress
on reducing the amount of
phosphorus from their opera-
tions as a result of practices initi-
ated through the Best Available
Technologies (BAT) project of
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD).
A dozen water-related agency
people and area dairymen
attended a BAT meeting on
Wednesday, March 8, at the
SFWMD's Service Center at 205
N. Parrott Ave.
Representatives of SFWMD,
Florida Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services,
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection, University of
Florida Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences, Natural
Resources Conservation Ser-
vices, and local dairymen Randy


and Doug Burnham attended.
Del Bottcher, president of Soil
and Water Engineering Technol-
ogy, Inc., updated the group on
the progress of the BAT project
his firm has been leading since
2001. The goal is to reduce the
export of phosphorus from four
dairy operations into Lake Okee-
chobee.
There are 20 dairy operations
in Okeechobee County, and
those dairies that are not part of
the BAT project are engaged in
other practices to help reduce
the loss of phosphorus from
their farms. They are involved
with an Agriculture Nutrient
Management Plan to help their
operation become nutrient bal-
anced and get a handle on their
imports and exports of phos-
phorus.
The four BAT dairy farms are
Butler Oaks, Davie, Dry Lake and
Milking R. Even though Dry Lake


Dairy was sold recently, the BAT
system is still in operation
because residual phosphorus
remains on the land and when it
rains, it can leach out of the soil.
Each of the four dairies has a
different technology system in
place for moving and treating
the water. Such systems usually
involve a pump that moves
water to a retention pond, a floc-
culation pond, chemical injec-
tion and large drying beds.
According to Gary Ritter, an
engineer with SFWMD, the origi-
nal goal for dairy operations was
to meet a goal of 1,200 ppb
(parts per billion) for phospho-
rus export. Many were above
that before the Lake Okee-
chobee Protection Act was
passed in 2003.
"We said we would do better
and bring the dairies below that,
and each of the four has
achieved that. With the systems,


SFWMD speeds i.d. of algae


With names like Spirogyra,
Mastogloia and Schizothrix
these common types of algae
sound more like gourmet pasta
dishes than slimy pond scum
that grows on rocks or other
plants in the Everglades ecosys-
tem. However, this pond scum
- or periphytic algae have a
very critical and beneficial func-
tion: they are a natural link in the
food chain, consumed by small
invertebrates and fish and are
sensitive indicators of environ-
mental change in wetland sys-
tems. Periphyton are the first
and fastest biological indicators
to respond to changes to water
quality conditions in the Ever-
glades ecosystem. .
By monitoring and studying
periphylon, scientists can pro-
vide data needed to evaluate the
progress and success of ihe
Comprehensive Eve glades
Restoration Plan ICERP under
the Restoration, Coordination
and Verification i RECOVER I
Program. To obtain monitoring
results sooner and quantity \
complex periph ton dynamics
and water quality interactions,
the South Florida vWater Manage-
ment District iSF\\MDi and
Florida Atlantic UIniversit I FALI
scientists are implementing -
for the first time a faster \%a.
of monitoring periphylon.
Today, the SFWMD Governing
Board authorized a three-year
cooperative agreement \ ith FALl
for monitoring Everglades peri.


phyton using chemotaxomony
technology, a rapid-assessment
monitoring method.
The $240,000 agreement uses
a well-established method
known as chemotaxonomy to
quantify periphyton abundance
and composition of different
types of algae based on diagnos-
tic pigments. Samples can be
analyzed faster than traditional
methods, such as chlorophyll a
or taxonomy.
The current method of moni-
toring can take between six to 18
months to complete, while this
rapid screening method reports
results in two to four weeks, said
District project manager and-
environmental scientist Scot


Hagerthey, Ph.D.
Because periphyton respond
rapidly to changes in water
chemistry, this method will
allow more rapid identification
of areas that may be undergoing
changes due to CERP influences
that may otherwise be missed
by traditional sampling meth-
ods.
More than 480 samples will
be collected each year from sites
throughout the Everglades
region starting April 2006. The
chemotaxomonic assessment of
these samples will be reported
in the context of their relation-
ships' to other key RECOVER
projects, in the Annual Systems
Status Report.


they are all down around 200
ppb," he said.
The four dairies involved in
the BAT project are actual work-
ing dairies that can serve as
models for other dairy farmers
in the future, especially as
SFWMD works toward maintain-
ing phosphorus levels at a total
maximum daily load (TMDL) of
140 metric tons.
Currently, the lake averages
500 to 600 tons of phosphorus.
SFWMD has targeted reaching the
desired TMDL by the year 2015.
Dairy farm runoff represents only
a portion of what contributes to
phosphorus in the lake.
According to Mr. Ritter, the
district will do a cost analysis of
the BAT project for funding.
They will look at what it costs to
install and maintain a new tech-
nology system and compute the
cost per the amount of phospho-
rus removed.
"We want to make sure oper-
ating the technology is cost
effective," he said.

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

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

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

How are we doing?
