Shirelles, Miranda Lambert, and


Blake Shelton.
Opening ceremonies will

tions of the featured music and

Corps debuts



the Everglades



plan at PBCC


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE At $10
billion, the Comprehensive
Everglades Restoration Pro-
ject is the largest environmen-
tal rehabilitation project in the
world today. With those bil-
lions pledged toward restor-
ing the natural water
resources in the Everglades,
the project also symbolizes
the .promise of jobs and
money that the local commu-
nities can potentially tap into.
The problem is that some,
people today, including many
residents in the area, don't
completely understand the
project, its purpose, or what
potential benefit the average
person can expect to see from
the 30-year plan.
In an effort to change that


locally, the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers debuted the Ever-
glades Restoration Kiosk at
the Belle Glade campus of
Palm Beach Community Col-
lege. The kiosk, which is basi-
cally a computer inside of a
large cabinet, takes the user
through an animated, vivid
trek through the project and,
in only a few minutes, is able
to enlighten strangers to the
CERP.
It is a perfect way, Malissa S.
Booth, outreach specialist for
the corps of engineers, said, to
teach the local communities
exactly how the project, "Liter-
ally right in your background,"
will affect the area.
Formally dubbed the CERP

15 deadline for federal income
tax preparations may not be
the most exciting or anticipated
date of the year, but at least
some residents can browse the
area's finest collection of litera-
ture and periodicals while they
get their taxes done.
Because this year's April 15
deadline falls on a Saturday, cit-

send tax information to the
Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

and still need help filing your
tax return, there are free servic-

business hours on April 13.
Additional services are avail-

and through the weekend, so
Thursday is the last day to

number eight, Brittani McNeal
sponsored by Barbara's Hair

TO THE RESIDENTS OF GLADES COUNTY
SAY "NO! TO A LANDFILL in MOORE HAVEN
We are writing this letter to inform all residents as well as non residents who
have a vested interest in Moore Haven of a project the City Council is working on.
The City of Moore Haven council is in negotiations with Republic Services a Solid
Waste company in putting in a LANDFILL in the City of Moore Haven. They are
at the stage of acquiring the land (Duda Farm property), annexing the land into the
City and establishing a DUMP in your community.

There are many articles on the internet about this company and how they have
destroyed other communities. PLEASE GET INVOLVED!!!!
Whether it be Republic or another firm do you want a Garbage dump in your back
yard? Methane gas which landfills produce is a silent killer! Methane gas will be
generated for years after the landfill has reached capacity. All in your back yard.
That is just one issue- not factoring in truck traffic, illegal things being dumped into
the landfill, WATER CONTAMINATION, and a beautiful community being
known as the regional dumping ground, The City Council seems to think it's a
great idea because the city has been promised they will receive millions from
Republic for letting them put a Dump in your back yard. No one has factored in
what cities have spent suing .Republic for multiple violations. Again search the
internet. Though the millions promised might be a short term fix for the City,
There are better ways to increase revenues without destroying this quaint town
and beautiful County.

Garbage trucks from neighboring counties and cities will use this DUMP
Highway 78 and 27 will have more accidents because of truck traffic, Republic
also contacted Glades County with the same proposal and the County rejected
their offer, so the only way for Republic Waste to put a dump in this area is to have
it annexed into the city.

The City Council will meet and a small group of men will make a major deci-
sion for our community by advertising it in the local paper a few times (maybe) in
hopes the community doesn't respond so they can approve it. They will be long
gone after their decision and your children will have to deal with the problems that
could occur or the embarrassment that their community is the dumping grounds
for all the other communities, as you can tell we are against the LANDFILL. This
ad is in no way sponsored by the Glades County Democrat and we would like to
apologize to Mr. Young for any confusion. The purpose of the mass mailing was to
let the City Council who will do what ever they want unless YOU act and the
Glade County Democrat know your feelings, we felt the Glades County Democrat
would keep the council in check with what its citizens really want and demand.
Remember the Councilmen are elected officials and unless a very strong appeal is
made against he landfill YOU'RE GETTING A REGIONAL LANDFILL regard-
less of lake contamination, soil contamination, esthetics, and the countless other


problems it will bring. Voice your opposition by calling CITY HALL AT 863-946-
0711 or your County Commissioner Russell Echols at 863-946-6000. Write the
editors of this newspaper, contact all your elected officials SPEAK UP AND BE
HEARD.

Sincerely,
'Gail Brown on behalf of concerned citizens against a Moore Haven Landfill

to throw the dinner down the sink
if he didn't come out to help and
finally went into the living room to
find him and give him a piece of
her mind.
What she found was a 30-year
old healthy, active young husband
passed out on the floor. That was
the beginning of a 17-year
odyssey that began with a trip to a
local emergency room, tests, the
advice that they should "live it up"
because he had six months to
live. Family intervention and the
belief that "we can do better than
that" led to more doctors, more
tests, surgery and 17 years more
life instead of six months. The first
death sentence was not the end
- it was a prelude to the belief
that there was something beyond
it and there was!
I have visited and prayed with


many patients over the years of
my ministry, dead in many ways,
then resurrected one day when
life returns and the prayers and
hopes of families are rewarded -
there really was a new life that fol-
lowed.
The Easter story is about a
group of followers on Calvary
who see a death sentence carried
out, expect the end and why
not! Jesus did what he came to
do, but He died, after all, and He
was buried! Then came a new
life, discovered "by accident"
because two women wish to pay
respect at his tomb. But the tomb
is empty and the world is
changed.
The Easter message is, "death
is not the end!" and life continues.
It takes faith, but we can see it
around us in small ways every
day. Life is in the rebirth of spring-
time, the renewal of relationships
with loved ones, the healing of
someone lost, the addition to a
family, the person who has led to
wasted life and finally "gets the
message", the finding of some-
thing or someone lost, the release


of a captive or the freedom of
someone imprisoned the East-
er story is all around us.
There is a certain ironic, wry
twist that goes with the Easter
story that I love you. You may
recall that Satan tempts Eve in the
Garden and tells her, "You will not
surely die for God knows that
when you eat of it (the apple)
your eyes will be opened. (Gene-
sis 3:4)."
In fact, in site of Eve's suc-
cumbing; God heals, God restores
- and Eve and the rest of us do
not die, but we live. We live, not
because of what evil brings us but
because what Eve, and what all of
us hope for, comes in spite of the
best efforts of evil. It comes
because it is God's will and
because the Lord promised it, and
because the knowledge of faith
that we receive through the Easter
story.
Through all of the scared sto-
ries is the story of life and the life
to come the real knowledge
and gift come from God. The devil
tempts Eve to share in what God
will give freely to live and to


know the victory is won, the life is
given.
The Bible ends with the book
telling us to listen to what the spir-
it says to the churches, "to him
who overcomes, I will give the
right to eat from the Tree of life,
which is in the paradise of God
(Revelation 2:7)"
Easter is when the Lord gave
us that right and we take time out
to remember and give thanks for
so great a gift. Those who have
gone before us follow in the
Lord's footsteps their tombs
are empty and they no longer live
in them.
Instead, they live with God
because he came, died and lived
again. When Lazarus. died, Jesus
told his sister Martha, "I am the
resurrection and the life (John 11:
25)" and we now see just all of
what that means "resurrection"
that death is not the end because
Jesus has been raised, and "life"
because that is his gift to us life
goes on beyond this life and is
ours in eternity. Alleluia the Lord
is risen he has risen indeed!


All of us have a donkey we must ride


Submitted Photo/U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
The areas of the dike around Lake Okeechobee, which were
eroded by the winds and waves of Hurricane Wilma in Octo-
ber 2005 have been repaired with new lime rock fill and a
rock berm to prevent further damage until a permanent solu-
tion is put in place.


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Once again, we are coming up
to Easter. Once again, we are
coming up to tax time. Once
again Easter and taxes fall on the
same week. Once again I find
myself thinking about our Easter
services, our annual butterfly
release following those services,
and all of the other special Holy
Week activities while dealing with
the nagging weight that I need to
get our taxes done.
Once again, I find it ironic that
as I sit at my computer outlining
Easter messages and letters with
my Bible opened to the passage
proclaiming, "He is not here, He is
risen", that I have next to them my
tax records for 2005 proclaiming,
"Here I am, send me!" With


apologies to the IRS, one seems
very heavenly and the other very
earthly. One minute I'm at Cal-
vary, the next I'm at my check-
book. The time I spend on one
seems worshipful, the other
worldly. One reminds how God
paid it all, and the other reminds
that I have a lot to pay. In all of
this, I try to keep in mind the
words of Christ to render to Cae-
sar the things that are Caesar's
and to God the things that are
God's.
But, once again, as I read the
Palm Sunday Scriptures, I find my
thoughts toward the guy who
gave the donkey for Jesus to ride
into Jerusalem on that first Palm
Sunday. We don't know his name
or what he looks like. We only
know that Jesus told His disciples
that, "If anyone asks you why you


are taking the donkeys, say that
the Master has need of them, and
he will send them at once."
Matthew 21:3
Did this guy just give his ani-
mals to someone in need, or did
he know it was Jesus who needed
the donkey? Did he worry about
getting the donkey back? I won-
der about these things because
sometimes it's hard for me to give
as freely as I might. There are
times I like to keep my animals to
myself for my own use. Some-
times I get the impression that
God wants me to give Him some-
thing and sometimes I don't give
it because I'm not sure or it's .not
convenient or I'm worried about
the security of getting back what I
am giving. Sometimes I feel like I
have missed opportunities. Some-
times I wonder if my little deeds


and giving today will really make
a difference in the long run. Other
times I hear and obey our Lord,
and feel honored that a gift of
mine would be used to carry
Jesus forward.
The reality is that all of us have
a donkey. You and I each have
something in our lives, which, if
given back to God, could, like the
donkey, move Jesus and his story
further down the road. Maybe you
can sing, or hug, or teach a class,
or visit a neighbor, or speak a for-
eign language.. Maybe you can
write a check. Whichever, that's
your donkey. Whichever, it could
be that God wants to mount your
donkey and enter into another
place, another situation, another
heart..


Herbert Hoove Dike is rehabilitated


Significant erosion to the Herbert Hoover Dike was caused
by Hurricane Wilma in an area just south of Pahokee.


Hurricane Wilma



damage to dike


By MaryAnn Morris

Repairs of the damage to the
Herbert Hoover Dike by Hurri-
cane Wilma in October 2005
were completed at the beginning
of December by the Army Corps
of Engineers (COE). The (COE),
responsible for maintenance of
the dike, made temporary repairs
to the slope of the dike adjacent to
the lake across from the airport
just south of Pahokee.
Hurricane Wilma's winds
caused waves on Lake Okee-
chobee such that the 70-year-old
dike, with its 1950s asphalt stabi-
lization, was seriously eroded in
an area behind the airport near
Pahokee.
The eroded areas were
cleaned of debris, the adjacent
asphalt was removed, new


crushed lime rock fill material
was brought in to reconstruct the
dike slope, new sod was placed to
cover the areas, and a temporary
rock berm was constructed at the
bottom of the slope to help break
up any waves from future storm
events until a more permanent
solution can be put in place.
"Currently, we are working on
designing that solution with the
hope that it can be put in place
before the summer," said Jacob
Davis, engineer for the COE. "The
solution will consist of armor
material (riprap, cable-tied con-
crete blocks, or gabion mattress-
es) covering the areas that were
damaged. It is our intent to even-
tually provide new armor protec-
tion after ripping out all the
asphalt as funding permits."


By MaryAnn Morris

LAKE OKEECHOBEE The
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
(COE) has the responsibility to
maintain the Herbert Hoover Dike,
which encircles 730-acre Lake
Okeechobee. A "rehabilitation" of
this 70-year-old flood-control struc-
ture was begun by the Corps last
year. This construction, long in
coming has taken years to obtain
the necessary funding and to gain
the approval of concerned environ-
mental groups and water man-
agers.
"The Dike is designed for a
probable maximum flood eleva-
tion of 26 feet coupled with a 100-
year wind event with winds of 109
miles an hour," said Luis Ruiz, a
registered professional engineer
and Chief of the COE Geotechnical
Division.
"There has been some leakage,
called 'piping' or 'boils' seen since
the 1980s. These areas are repaired
as they are observed," said Mr.
Ruiz.
The Herbert Hoover Dike Reha-
bilitation Project, is the long-term
solution. This solution was pro-
duced after 19 years of study and
permit reviews since piping was
first seen in 1984.
A "cut-off wall" will be con-
structed on the landside of the
dike. It will be two feet' thick,


impervious to seepage of water
and visible from the adjacent road
(U.S. 441 S). The top of the wall
will be at 26 feet above sea level.
The wall will extend down through
the dike to 10 feet below sea level.
This will prevent water from the
lake from seeping through the
dike. A gravel-filled trench near the
existing rim canal at the bottom of
the slope of the dike will carry off
water from the slope of the dike
below the cut-offwall.
The work will be done section
by section under individual con-
tracts to best utilize the funds allo-
cated each Federal Budgetyear.
"There are 6,200 feet of wall
built on the first section (Reach 1-
A)," said Jacob Davis, of the COE.
"Reach 1-A extends roughly from
Port Myaka to Sand Cut. The design
documents for Reaches 1-B and 1-
C are about 60 percent complete,"
continued Mr. Davis. "This is where
we look at different solutions and
methods and decide what is best
for this particular site."

Reaches 1-B and 1-Cwill extend
south from Sand Cut down to Cul-

"We are also working on the

Q: Dear Doc Savvy. My dog
has an excessive chewing prob-
lem! He will not stop chewing his
back left foot. This has been
going on for
about a
month. I took

and he said it
was a behav-
ioral thing to
do with bore-
dom. He did,
however, treat
him with corti- Doc
sone and Savvy
advised me to
play with him more and give him
more attention. Butchy is 12
years old and doesn't seem to
want to play all that much more.
I bought him some new toys,
treats, and a dog DVD that is sup-
posed to entertain him. Things
haven't changed all that much.
He still chews, and now has
chewed a hole in one toe in par-
ticular. Help, my dog is eating his
foot! What do I do? Thanks Doc,
Jorge Sanchez in Loxahatchee.
A: Dear Jorge, this is some-
times a common thing! Three
things come to my mind here.
The first thing is what your vet
had told you. That condition is
called a lick granuloma. Licking,
which is excessive and causes a
wound in the area. It is usually
due to boredom or even habit


after a while. Secondly, I was
thinking about pain! Is Butchy
arthritic? Maybe his joints hurt
him and that is why he is licking
a lot. Talk to your vet about a
product called Metacam. Meta-
cam is a liquid, once-a-day anti-
arthritis product for dogs, and it
really works! The third thing I
am thinking of is a bit more seri-
ous. Sometimes older dogs
chew one toe in particular due
to cancer. We call this condition
"cancer toe.".
The type of cancer, which this
may be is a bone cancer called
osteosarcoma. This is a very
aggressive cancer, which does
spread. One way to diagnose
this is to take an X-ray of the
affected bone. A classic radi-
ographic sign called a "star
burst" pattern on the bone is
almost 100-percent diagnostic
for this condition. Sometimes a
biopsy and histopathology is
indicated as well. Jorge, if it is an
osteosarcoma you want to diag-
nose it ASAP. There are some
treatment options and the soon-
er you move on it, the better
Butchy's chances will be. I hope
it's not cancer Jorge. Keep me
posted and best wishes, Doc
Savvy.

Former county employee arrested


The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement announces the
arrest of Jose Serrano, 51, of
LaBelle, Fla. Serrano is charged
with official misconduct of a pub-
lic official, bribery by a public offi-
cial and public assistance fraud.
FDLE special agents and mem-
bers of FDLE's Fort Myers Phar-
maceutical Diversion Response
Team (DRT) took Serrano into
custody on March 16 after a
seven-month investigation.
FDLE financial crime investiga-
tors received information that Ser-
rano was using his authority as a
Hendry County Social Services
Case Manager to solicit prescrip-


tion narcotic pain medications
from clients. Investigators say dur-
ing a seven-month period in 2004,
Serrano falsi-
fied applica-
tions for clients
making them
eligible for the
Social Services
Community
Service Block
Grant Program
and the county
funded Emer- Jose
agency Assis- Serrano
tance Program
in return for narcotics such as
OxyContin and Xanex. Serrano


allegedly attempted to bribe pro-
gram recipients with additional
food vouchers and cash from vari-
ous programs that he was respon-
sible for administering in
exchange for their prescription
pills. According to witnesses, he
harassed Social Services clients
on a daily basis in an attempt to
solicit the pills. Many recipients
complied, often delivering their
prescription drugs to Serrano at
his Social Services office located
in the Hendry County Court-
house. One recipient told investi-
gators he feared that if he did not
turn over his pain killers to Serra-
no that Serrano would cut off his


HUD housing and his family
would be left homeless.
Serrano. is believed to have
fraudulently issued a total of
$2,486.81 in Hendry County
Social Services benefits during
this seven-month period. All three
charges that Serrano faces are
felonies.
The DRT is a task force made
up of state and federal agencies
that have authority to investigate
criminal misuse of prescribed
medications. This can include
doctors who illegally prescribe;
pharmacists who illegally distrib-
ute; and individuals who illegally
obtain prescription drugs.

HC SO brings down
another grow house
FLAGHOLE Intelligence
leads developed by the Criminal
Investigation Division of the
Hendry County Sheriff's Office
has led to the 11th bust of an ille-
gal Hendry County grow house


since February of 2005.

Lee, a search conducted at
approximately 10:20 a.m. on April
10, was made at 320 Kilpatrick
Loop in the Flaghole community
of Hendry County where investi-
gators discovered marijuana
plants ranging in size from two to
two to three feet tall.
The plants were being cultivat-
ed with elaborate electronic aided
equipment in two rooms of the
residence. The seizure of the
plants occurred just prior to har-
vest. Estimated value of the plants


is $45,000-$50,000.
The two people arrested both
were from Dade County. Yajaira
Irizarry, age 53, a Venezuelan citi-
zen in the U.S. on aworkvisa, and
Rafael Suarez-Perez, age 30, were
transported and booked into the
Hendry County Jail.

William Griffin conducted the
investigation and, with the assis-
tance of Clerk of Court Barbara

Sheriffs, as well as one Democrat
Sheriff and one independent Sher-
iff, made its announcement at a
press conference in Tallahassee.
In accepting the endorsement,
Crist spoke about the important

protect Florida children, seniors
and families.
. Charlie Crist is a true Republican
who has been a champion for
ensuring that government meets its,
primary obligation to protect life and
ensure domestic tranquility, said

Florida sheriffs put their lives on
the line every day to ensure the safe-
ty of all Floridians and I am honored
and humbled by the endorsement
of these dedicated law enforcement
officers, said Crist.
Pinellas County Sheriff Jim
Coats added, Charlie Crist has a,
proven track record as a principled
conservative and has the vision,
experience and passion to lead
Florida as its next Governor.

Crist has displayed the integrity and
courage to take on the tough issues
and I am confident that he will be a
great Governor, said Lee County

Miss McNeal's goals are to
graduate from Clewiston High
School, and attend Southeastern
University where she plans to
major in theater arts, and receive
a bachelor's degree.
As a farewell to holding the
title of 2005 Miss Sugar, Megan
Hough said, "All I have gained
from this, it has been a very ful-
filling experience for me and this
is something that I will always
hold close to my heart", while
she did her final walk before
handing over the crown to Ms.
McNeal.

the rodeo will feature some of
the area's top young talents in

Sunday will be about fishing
as the. Sugar Festival Bass Tour-
nament gets underway; boats
will be given the go-ahead at 6
a.m. from the Clewiston docks
at Lake Okeechobee. The tour-
nament is sponsored by the
Clewiston Bass Anglers Club.


INI/Jose Zaragoza
Officials representing the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers unveiled the Everglades Restoration
Kiosk this week at Palm Beach Community College in Belle Glade.


Kiosk
Continued From Page 1
the display will be made avail-
able to the general public at the
site through the summer. Repre-
sentatives of the governmental
agencies working together on
the restoration project are hop-
ing that the kiosk will be well uti-
lized by local residents.
The kiosk has a user-friendly
touch screen that lets users navi-
gate through an easy menu that
details each part of the project.
According to the Corps, the
machine is designed with all ages
in mind, with children as young
as six able to use the kiosk. "It's
as simple as a bank ATM and has
every fact you would like to
know about Everglades restora-
tion," said Ellen Underwood of
Sunshine Communications.
The kiosk's animated dis-
plays do a good job of explain-
ing the technical jargon behind
many of the projects under
CERP in an informative yet easy-
to-grasp way. The idea behind
the kiosk concept, first intro-
duced in 2004, is to break down
the barriers of the complex theo-
ries of the project.
College officials welcomed
the opportunity to host the kiosk


at their location. "It's a lot of
fun," Dr. Beverly Robinson,
provost of PBCC's Belle Glade
campus, said Monday at the
kiosk's unveiling while tinkering
with the unit. Dr. Robinson urged
residents to stop by the kiosk and
get informed on the project.
The unit is especially wel-
comed in light of the college, the
Workforce Alliance and South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict's partnership to train people
from the local workforce to
work on several of the projects
in CERP. The certification
process has already attracted a
number of residents to the col-
lege who are vying for jobs in
construction and heavy equip-
ment operation.
The corps, meanwhile,
invites feedback on CERP.
"It is every taxpayer's respon-
sibility to at least understand the
project," said Corps Deputy
Commander Andrew Goetz. "If
you don't understand that sys-
tem, you 'don't know if I'm
spending your $10-and-a-half
billion wisely."
For more information on the
Comprehensive Everglades
Restoration Project, including
questions about job training,
call the U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers at 1-877-CERP-USA, or visit
www.evergladesplan.org.


Taxes
Continued From Page 1
library assistants trained by IRS
staffers to correctly and accurately
file federal tax returns, including
Clewiston librarian's assistant
Sabrina Pearson.
"The process usually takes
anywhere between 15 to 30 min-
utes, depending on what needs to
be filed and reported," she said.
Ms. Pearson has prepared tax
returns as a service of the library
for three years, and the volunteer
services have always been given
free of charge. In addition to train-


Townsend
Continued From Page 1
At that time he began his
Extension career as the Live-
stock/4-H Agent in Collier County,
Florida. While an Extension Agent
in Collier County, Mr. Townsend
gave leadership to the Brucellosis
Eradication Program for beef cat-
tle, developed improved pasture
fertilization programs and con-
ducted the Ranch Business Analy-
sis program. In addition, he
expanded the 4-H Club program
and developed the Livestock and
Meat Judging Teams, as well as
other competitive 4-H events that
led to a number of 4-H members

ing in tax filing, IRS staffers also
provide additional training for
changes that occur year-to-year.
"We are trained by IRS repre-
sentatives to be able to prepare
the tax returns, and to learn about
new tax laws," she said. "They
give testing and then give
approval for the tax returns serv-
ices, after the tests."
The library also provides tax
return services for non-English
speaking residents; library
employee Maria Antunez pro-
vides tax filing services for Span-
ish speakers.
The library tax services volun-
teers ask that participants bring


recognition.
In 1979, Mr. Townsend was
appointed as the County Exten-
sion Director of Hendry County.
During his tenure in Hendry
County he continued his Exten-
sion work in Commercial Live-
stock and the 4-H Club Livestock
Program areas. In addition, at
times he has included citrus, veg-
etable and sugarcane program
activities due to the absence of
Extension Agents in the area to
meet these program needs. In his
latter years of service, extensive
program activities were devel-
oped to deal with the environ-
ment and governmental regulato-
ry issues that confronting the
agricultural industry of Southwest
Florida.

Mr. Townsend retired from the
Extension Service at the end of
October in 2004 after serving a
total of 39 years in Collier and
Hendry Counties. However, he
has remained active in the agricul-
tural industry of Southwest Flori-
da. Both government and private
entities still seek his advice and
counsel.
Mr. Townsend has been recog-
nized and received many awards
throughout his career. To pay trib-
ute to his service, he was honored
with the designation of Agricul-
ture Agent Emeritus and the for-
mation of the Dallas B. Townsend

Florida contributed an approxi-
mate 50-percent match to create
the fund to endow this program.
Mr. Townsend has served the
agriculture interest of Hendry
County with great professional-
ism and has materially advanced
the interest of farming, ranching
and the protection of our natural
resources. His service reflects
great credit upon him and his
selection as the 2006 Sugar Festi-
val Honoree is most deserved and
fitting.
As with any successful career,
Mr. Townsend realizes and gives
full credit to the importance of his
wife, Doris, and her contributions.
They reside in Felda.

Washing often will help prevent Avian Flu Toread more news, visit www.newszap.com.


Editor's note: This information
is the third part in a series on Pan-
demic Influenza provided by The
Hendry and Glades County
Health Departments. The series
will cover basic information and
actions to be taken if Pandemic
Flu becomes a realistic threat to
the citizens of Hendry and Glades
County.
How can I protect myself from
Bird Flu or other forms of flu?
The main way that illnesses
like colds and flu are spread is
from person to person in the res-
piratory droplets of coughs and
sneezes. This is called "droplet
spread". This happens when
droplets from the cough or
sneeze of an infected person
move through the air and are
deposited on the mouth or nose


of people nearby. Germs are also
spread when a person touches
the respiratory droplets that have
been deposited on a desk or other
surface and then touch their own
eyes, mouth or nose before wash-
ing their hands.
While there is no vaccination
currently available for bird flu, the
following simple steps can help
prevent any flu and limit the
spread of infection.
Wash your hands often.
Hands should be washed for 15-
20 seconds; about the amount of
time it takes to sing the "Happy
Birthday" song twice.
Each time you cough or
sneeze, cough or sneeze into a tis-
sue, throw the tissue away and
wash your hands.
If you don't have a tissue,


sneeze or cough into your sleeve.
Stay away from people who
are sick.
Teach your children to wash
their hands frequently with soap
and water and cover their cough.
Stay home from work and
school if sick.
When soap and water are
not available, alcohol-based
wipes or gel sanitizers may be
used.
*When traveling, avoid places
where avian flu is more likely to
be transmitted.
Family Emergency Health
Information Sheet
It is important to think about
health issues that could arise if an
influenza pandemic occurs and
how they could affect you and
your loved ones. For example, if a


mass vaccination clinic is set up in
your community, you may need
to provide as much information
as you can about your medical
history, especially if you have a
serious health condition or aller-
gy. According to Dr. Fernandez,
Medical Director of the Hendry
and Glades County Health Depart-
ments, "It is also important to
stock a three month supply of pre-
scription medications."
Create a family emergency
health plan using this informa-
tion. Fill in information for each
family member in the space pro-
vided. Like much of the planning
for a pandemic, this can also help
prepare for other emergencies.
The most current information
on Avian Flu is available at
http://www.pandemicflu.gov.

U.S. Border

Patrol will

help citrus
Florida citrus growers are
greatly encouraged by the
supportive nature of an alert
issued by the U.S. Customs &
Border Protection/Department
of Homeland Security yester-
day. The alert issued to all sta-
tions called for their officers to
be on the lookout for parcels
and/or other shipments con-
taining citrus plant material
during passenger baggage
inspection, mail facility
inspections, etc. This action
follows the state of Florida's
recent announcement allow-
ing the re-planting of citrus in
areas formerly quarantined for
Citrus Canker.
"If anything, this is clear
evidence that they recognize
the threat posed to the Florida
Citrus Industry stemming
from the desire of local citi-
zens to replant citrus in resi-
dential areas and the possibili-
ty of persons smuggling
propagative citrus materials
.from outside the United States
to meet this demand," said Pat
Gomes, National Coordinator
for the Citrus Health Response
Plan, USDA, APHIS PPQ.

Alico reports improved second quarter earnings


LABELLE Alico, Inc. (NAS-
DAQ: ALCO), a leading landhold-
er and agribusiness company,
announced net earnings for the
second quarter of fiscal year 2006
of $2.7 million, or $0.36 per
share, compared with breakeven
results during the same period of
the prior year.
For the six months ended Feb-
ruary 28, 2006, net earnings were
$3.8 million, or $0.52 per share,
compared with $1.0 million, or
$0.13 per share, for the six
months ended February 28, 2005.
.. Operating revenues during.the
second quarter totaled $21.5 mil-
lion, compared with $19.4 mil-
lion for the second quarter of the
prior year. This increase was pri-
marily due to increased revenues
from citrus operations resulting
from ,revenues earned by the
company's newly acquired sub-
sidiary, Bovein Brothers Fruit,
LLC ("Bowen"'.
Operating revenues for the six
months ended February 28, 2006
were $28.2 million, compared
with $27.0 million for the same
period of the prior year
Pretax incomrne from opera-
tions.\\ as $3.6 million foi ihe-
quarter, compared with a loss ol
$0.9 million for lhe same quarter
of 2005. The increase was prima-
rily due to a flaorable change in
estimate of $2.9 million resulting


from crop recoveries previously
recognized as casualty losses.
Addressing the divisional
results, Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer John R. Alexan-
der noted that:
The Citrus division recorded
profits of $1.8 million and $2.4
' million for the quarter and six
months ended February 28, 2006,
respectively, compared with $0.9
million and $1.7 million during
the same periods in 2005. This
increase is primarily attributable
to a price increase for citrus fruit
across the industry that has
resulted from the reduced citrus
supply caused by hurricanes, cit-
rus canker finds and increased
real estate development in the
central and southern portions of
Florida. On February 13, 2006,
Alico, through Bowen, pur-
chased the assets of Bowen
Brothers Fruit Co., Inc. Bowen's
operations generated revenues of
$5.7 million and expenses of $5.7
million from the date of acquisi-
tion to February 28, 2006.
Sugarcane and sod generat-
ed '. profit of $0.3 million for the
three months ended February 28,
2006, compailed \ iitl bit.lke' e-n
results for the same period during
the prior year. For the six months
ended February 28, 2006 and
2005, the sugarcane and sod divi-
sion generated a loss of $0.3 mil-


lion and a profit of $0.4 million,
respectively. The current loss was
primarily attributable to the rising
price of fertilizer and adjustments
made to the Company's invento-
ried sugarcane crop, which were
charged to cost of sales, for the six
months ended February 28, 2006.
Cattle profits were $0.1 mil-
lion and $0.6 million for the three
and six months ended February
28, 2006, respectively, compared
with $0.5 million and $0.7 million
for the same periods during 2005,
when the company sold more of
its calf crop to take advantage of
record high prices for calves.
Prices for beef cattle generally
have improved during the current
year compared with the prior year
($0.82 per pound average,
received on all cattle sold for the
first six months of fiscal year 2006,
compared with $0.77 per pound
average for the first six months of
fiscal 2005). The overall price
increase has served to offset the
reduced number of cattle sold.
The Company also sells veg-
etable transplants through its
subsidiary, Alico Plant World,
LLC, sells native plants from its
ranch.lpatioqnnad sells .cor ,i rd
beans from its farming opera-
tions. Income, from these opera-
tions totaled $0.4 million and $0.1
million for the three and six
months ended February 28, 2006,


respectively, compared with $0.1
million and $0.2 million for the
same periods in 2005.

Clewiston Dixie


League underway


By Mark Young
CLEWISTON Clewiston's
Dixie League softball season is fast
underway, as young athletes took
to the clay diamond for softball
action beginning April 3.
Clewiston's traveling Dixie
Belles' Howell Oil, led by head
coach Kenneth Howell, saw his
young squad take an opening sea-
son loss to HCFL, coached by Trip
Whidden, despite some solid early
season hurling by pitchers Bonnie
Cortez and Sarah Howell. Taking
the mound for HCFL in the season
opener was young Zoe Perry.
Howell Oil opened up an early
advantage and held it until the third
inning when HCFL's bats came to
life to assume the lead for good, but
the Howell Oil squad launched a
comeback bid in the final inning
when Christina Sandoval came to
bat with the tying run standing on
second base.
With HCFL holding a slim 6-5
advantage, Sandoval launched a fly
ball. single over the shortstop's
head. The Howell Oil runner took
off and received the go signal as she
made the game tying attempt to
score, but HCFL's Lovely Aviles


threw a rocket to home plate,
which was caught by catcher Dee-
Andra Trottie who laid down a per-
fect tag for the final out of the
game, securing HCFLs victory.
HCFL (Hendry County Fair and
Livestock) took their momentum
into LaBelle where the Clewiston
squad downed the LaBelle Gators
by a score of 3-1 with former
Clewiston standout Samantha
Ortiz, who recently moved to
LaBelle taking the mound for the
Gators and accounted for LaBelle's
only run of the game after drawing
a walk and stealing the bases to put
her in position for the score.
Ortiz's run held up for much of
the game before Clewiston awoke
their thunder sticks and had their
late game offensive efforts backed
up by solid pitching from Perry and
great defense from Janeria Hatcher
who thwarted an inside-the-park
homerun with a great throw from
the outfield. Hatcher would also be
responsible for the game-winning
hit when she drilled a two-run dou-
ble to give HCFL the advantage,
which would hold up for HCFI's
second straight victory.,
The two Clewiston squads will
have matched up once again by
press time.

U.S. Army Corps of engineers

launches life jacket loaner program


The U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers at the St. Lucie Lock Recre-
*ation Area will start a life jacket
loaner program for recreational
boaters who use the recreation
area's boat ramp.
Beginning on Thursday, March
30, boaters who don't have life
jackets on their vessels may bor-
row them from St. Lucie gate
attendant. Participants are
required to fill out a Life Jacket


Loaner Program form and to
return the jackets when they are
done boating.
Safe boating isn't just the
responsibility of the person
behind the wheel it applies to
everyone on board. Most boaters
do not plan on falling overboard,
and when they do, it is often too
late for action. Putting on a life
jacket when you need it is like try-
ing to put on a seat. belt just


before a crash.
According to 2003 U.S. Coast
Guards statistics, there were 703
boating fatalities in U.S. waters -
576 of which were not wearing life
jackets. In the same year, 481 peo-
ple drowned 416 (almost 86
percent) were not wearing life
jackets. Many had basic swim-
ming skills, yet that was not
enough to save their lives. Boat
safe! Boat smart! Wear a life jacket!


was 14.45 pounds, with the first
place Big Bass topping the scales at
8.23 pounds.
The third place team and sec-
ond place Big Bass of the tourna-
ment was the team of Garry Long
and Kelly Autrey, of LaBelle and
Clewiston. Their overall weight
was 13.20 pounds with the second
largest bass of the tournament
weighing in at only 7.92 lbs.
Congratulations to all the win-
ners and thanks to all the sponsors
that make these tournaments hap-
pen. The next Gold Division Bass
Busters tournament will be held in
Clewiston, on lake Okeechobee
Sunday April 23. The team entry is
$100 and includes the Big Bass
jackpot.

Community rallies for Rubio and Reynolds


CLEWISTON On March 25,
many members of Clewiston
pulled together to raise funds for
two in our community that have
recently suffered tragedies.
Bobbi Jo (Clark) Rubio was in a
severe auto accident earlier this
month that has left her with severe
injuries and she is still in the hospi-
tal. Earl Reynolds suffered third-
degree burns over a tremendous
portion of his body due to a weld-
ing accident.
In just a few days, a benefit bar-
beque was arranged and held to
raise money to help in offsetting the
medical bills for Bobbi Jo and Earl.
The exact amount has yet to be
determined, as some money and
donations are still coming in, but
thousands of dollars were raised,
and this project was only success-
ful due to the hard work and self-
lessness of many of our communi-
ty members.
Allen Barfield spearheaded the


event, and deserves a great deal of
the credit for the barbeque occur-
ring. Others who were of great help
during this time were Bo Austin,
Tim and Shannon Reynolds of Pig
In Pig Out BBQ, Penny Barton, Bob
and Judy Dunham, Ziegler Norter,
Wayne Shaw, Steve Clark, Joyce
Rice, Spike, and everyone who
helped sell tickets or serve the
meals on Saturday.
Thanks also to the Clewiston
Elks Lodge for the use of their facili-
ties as the food was being prepared
prior to Saturday. There were lots of
others who helped, and we apolo-
gize if anyone was left off of this list.
An event like this shows why
Clewiston is America's Sweetest
Town, because when tragedy
strikes, Clewiston residents are
always ready to lend a .hand.
Thanks to everyone who helped,
bought tickets or dinners, or donat-
ed to this cause.

The second annual old-fashioned cakewalk benefit


PAHOKEE Last year the
S. staff and residents at Glades

invited their friends and neigh-
bors to join them for a delicious
and fun afternoon and now they
are doing it again. The 2nd annu-

Hope Hospice works to inform


FORT MYERS Although it
has been a year since the death
of Terri Schiavo, discussion of
this family, tragedy continues
nationwide, even worldwide.
The -bitter disagreement
between Terri's husband and
her parents over her life support
reached the Governor, Congress,
the Supreme Court, the White
House and the Vatican. At the
heart of the issue: In what doc-
tors called a persistent vegeta-
tive state, Terri was unable to
speak for herself, and she left no
written instructions for her care.
According to Samira K. Beck-
with, President and CEO of
Hope Hospice, "The one good
thing about this is that it has led
families to realize the impor-
tance of being prepared for the
end of life. No one needs to suf-


fer as Terri's family has."
However, a recent national
study reveals that even though
more than 70 percent of Ameri-
cans had given thought to end-
of-life care, only 29 percent have
a living will.'
Beckwith says that number
will improve, as indicated by
Hope's steady stream of
requests for information and
materials about preparing for
future health care needs and
wishes. "This advance planning,
also known as 'Advance Direc-
tives' and other terms, refers to
your instructions, both oral and
written, about your medical care
in the event you are unable to
speak for yourself."
In response to the communi-
ty's interest in Advance Direc-
tives, members of Hope's Speak-


.ers Bureau make presentations
to groups upon request, to dis-
cuss questions that each person
should ask themselves about
end-of-life care, and to explain
how to prepare the simple docu-
ments. For more information,
call (239) 433-8066.
Hope's Advance Directives
booklet can be accessed at
www.hopehospice.org
http://www.hopehospice.org/.
On the home page, click on
Advance Directives.
"We know from experience
that peace of mind is essential to
comfort at the end of life," Beck-
with said. "Advance planning
can make a significant -differ-
ence in your life and in the lives
of those you love."

do something for the people

begins in the home.
Drew Shimkus, director of
Therapeutic Recreation at Glades

The staff of Glades Health Care
Center loves their residents and

"The people who live here at

many of our staff members know
the residents they work with from
their own childhoods. We are
proud of the therapeutic relation-
ship our staff members have with

Monroe Lightsley family really lived on


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 his-
torian, 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 second printing, "Strolling
down Country Roads in Okee-
chobee."
This week's story comes
from an interview she conduct-
ed with three members of the
Monroe Lightsley family.
The family came to Okee-
chobee around 1919 or 1920
recalled Monroe's wife, Martha
Ann Rebecca Storey Lightsley in
1989. Annie, as she was known
and Monroe came with seven of
the 10 children that eventually
made up the large family.
"We was living on Istopoga
Lake," said Annie. "We lived on
the north end of that. There
weren't roads from there to
here. I guess there might have
been some way of driving down
through in dry weather. But
when we moved here, we
moved in boats down the Isto-
poga and the Istopoga Creek
and canal, where you cross over
now going to Lorida; then on
down the river to Okeechobee."
Monroe bought an 80-acre

pioneers and history


tract with a house near present
day SR 78 (which wasn't built
until the 1930s). Annie said that
the house was located on this
side of the Kissimmee River.
"There was a wood house,"
recalled Annie. "My dad bought
the house and land all together
and he paid about $400 for both.
It wasn't a big house. It was
board and batten house. It was
on log blocks until the '28 storm.
They didn't have concrete
blocks then"
"Everyone who lived over
there lived on the ridge of Eagle
Bay. There were times in the fall
in the back when it would over-
flow. The river would overflow
and the water would come up to
the ridge on the back and be
high on the lake side," she said.
Monroe Lightsley tried fishing
to support the family.
"Commercial fishing was the
main thing then," remembered
Annie, "They fished with fishing
nets then. Most of the fishing
now is trot line."
"I might get to come to town
only every three or four months,


Special to INI/www.tommymarkham.com
During the wet season, the pier at Okeechobee in the 1920s
landed travelers onto a muddy Parrott Avenue as Annie


Lightsley remembered.
she said. "At times you could
drive a house and wagon across
Eagle Bay when the lake was
low. I had an uncle, Mary
Veasey's daddy who pulled a
barge from this end of the ridge
to somewhere around the end of
Parrott Avenue. You could drive
your house and wagon up on
that and come across. It would
take the biggest part of the day
to come to town and go back. It
was a bad road -no pavement,
just a road bed full of ruts. You
could bog down. There is a lot of
mucky land in there and they
didn't have graders to smooth it
down."
"The Eagle Bay schoolhouse
had just a cloth curtain across
the building and they had class-
es on one side and some on the

other," recalled Annie's son
Clarence. "But it was all still in
one room and all that separated
then was the cloth curtain. The
teacher's last name was Moslow
and I really liked her. She was
real pretty."
Annie's daughter, Jesna
Lightsley McClendon remem-


bered some of her child
the house on Eagle Bay:
"We washed in a w

and we had an old iron p

SB 2290 will protect


seniors from insurance


TALLAHASSEE Florida sen-_
iors who purchase long-term
and home health care insur-
ance now have protection from
sudden rate hikes and arbitrary
claim denials, thanks to a bill
passes unanimously by the
Senate Health Care Committee.
The legislation, SB 2290 by'
Sen.- Mike .,Fasano;. would
extend the:same protections to
seniors ati Toi.i--Gallagher,
State Insurance Commissioner,
obtained during the 2003 leg-
islative session for consumers
who. purchased health insur-
ance from out-of-state group
insurers. Specifically, the bill
would protect policyholders
from the practice of insurers
that close blocks of coverage to
avoid-spreading the risk among
a pool of insured seniors and


then hike rates on the smaller,
block.
"Seniors who responsibly
purchase coverage to prepare
for potential illnesses in future
years should be protected from
exorbitant rate increases and
arbitrary claim denials, espe-
cially at a time when they need
their coverage the most," said
Mr. Gallagher, who successfully
obtained protections for con-
sumers when purchasing
health insurance during the
2003 legislative session. "I
applaud state lawmakers for
approving this important legis-
lation for Florida seniors and
their families."
SB 2290 now heads to the
Senate General Government
Appropriations Committee. Its
House companion is HB 1349.
