Water plant moving forward


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Officials with
the city of Clewiston say plans to
construct a state-of-the-art water
plant in Clewiston are continuing
to move forward according to
schedule.
The new plant promises to
deliver some of the cleanest
drinking water in the state, allevi-
ating some of the problems asso-
ciated with drawing water direct-
ly from Lake Okeechobee.


Officials say the construction
on the new reverse osmosis
water plant has begun.
The plant will produce clean
drinking water at a rate of 3 mil-
lion gallons per day and is
expected to service the approxi-
mately 12,600 residents living in
Hendry and Glades counties, as
well as some areas of Palm
Beach County.
The system will incorporate
the latest in water filtration tech-
nology, which is expected to pro-
vide a cleaner water supply to all


residents. Many residents today
purchase bottled water because
they refuse to drink the water
from the tap, something that, will
change when the plant is up and
running, city leaders say.
The plant will be located
inside of the city's public works
compound off Olympia Street
and, according to city officials,
should be operational by August
of 2007.
According to documents pro-
vided by the city, the project is
moving forward as planned.


Three of the four production
wells have been completed and
contractors have started con-
struction of the main plant facili-
ty.
When finished, the plant will
remove the city's dependence on
the current water supply source,
U.S. Sugar's water system that
currently pulls its water from
Lake Okeechobee, to a ground
watery supply.
At $21 million, the construc-
tion and design of the plant is
expected to be paid through a


combination of federal and city
dollars and low-interest loans.
The city of Clewiston, qualify-
ing as a rural area, has sought
help from the USDA's Office of
Rural Development, the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict and the Federal Economic
Development Administration.
The majority of the money, a
share of $14.5 million in loans
and $4 million in grants was pro-
vided by the USDA office, com-

Bank expansion


project nears its


completion date


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston.News
CLEWISTON If you have
ridden by Sugarland Highway
recently, you may have
noticed construction crews
working on renovations at
one of the local banks.
The crews seem to have
made plenty of headway in
the project at the First Bank of
Clewiston, and are working
toward a completion date of
later this year.
Officials with the bank say


the renovation project
became necessary to house
their current and future
employees. To accommodate
the growing needs of the com-
munity, officials with the First
Bank of Clewiston decided it
was time to begin an expan-
sion of the bank and moved
forward with plans.
"We need more room to
house our employees," said
Bank President Miller Couse in
a telephone interview last

CLEWISTON For the fifth
consecutive year, the Clewis-
ton chapter of the American
Youth Soccer Organization.
(AYSO) played host to the
Challenger Sports British Soc-
cer Camp, held at the Sugar-
land Park sports complex last
week.
This year's youth camp
enrollment is a record for
campers, as this years total
topped out at 65 kids. The
Challenger Soccer Camps are
held all across the country for
children 4 to 18 years of age,
and are traditionally fielded
from late May until the end of
August.
This year the Challenger,
Soccer coaches will hold 1,500
camps across the United States
and instruct over 65,000 chil-
dren in the fine art of soccer.
Throughout the. week
campers learned ball control,
passing, shooting, and per-
haps most importantly -

On the camp's final day, the
campers were divided into

CLEWISTON What would
happen if the dike burst?
That's the question that
emergency planners and other
officials set out to answer at an
informational session this
week at John Boy Auditorium
in Clewiston.
Focusing especially on the
measures that emergency
agencies would take in the
event of a breach in the levee,
which holds Lake Okeechobee
in place, the speakers urged
residents to be prepared if the
order is given to evacuate.
Steve Duba, the Army
Corps' chief engineer, said. the
threat of piping (weak areas
that become holes that let
water through) in the dike -
which can lead to the rupture


"They get such great experience. They get the
opportunity to learn from players and coach-
es that have played at such a high level all
over the word. Holly Bach, my assistant, and
I can teach them a lot, but it's great that they
can gain insight from people at this level."

mini "world cup."
The knowledge was not
limited to the young kids, as
several members of the
Clewiston High School girl's
soccer team enrolled in the
program.
"They get such great experi-
ence," said Clewiston head
coach Keri Alford. "They get
the opportunity to learn from
players and coaches that have
played at such a high level all
over the word. Holly Bach, my
assistant, and I can teach them
a lot, but it's great that they can
gain insight from people at this
level."
The AYSO program contin-


ues to grow each year all
across the country, and the
increased level of interest in
youth soccer can only help the
high school and upper-level
programs.
The first round of sign-ups
for the Clewiston AYSO pro-
gram have already been held,
but there will be a mini-sign up
session at First United
Methodist Church on June 20
from 6 until 7 p.m. One more
full sign-up period will be
announced at a later date.
For any additional informa-
tion, parents are asked to con-
tact Heather Hess at (863) 233-

of the levee is not caused
strictly when a hurricane
comes, through the area,
though a hurricane may lead
to higher levels of water in the
lake from the rain it brings
with it.
According to Mr. Duba, the
main concern of the Corps is
when high levels of water sit
for long periods of time. Hurri-
cane events cause higher lev-
els of water that stabilize after
a period of time. Normal storm
events and increases in the
level of the lake, prove a far
more troublesome issue in
weakening the dike, he said.
Simply put, the call to evac-
uate can come at any moment,
not necessarily when the com-
munity is faced by an
approaching hurricane. So

On Wednesday, 12 students attended a four hour Red Cross workshop. Students learned
how to perform puppet shows on fire prevention, run carnival games about water safety
and other activities to help campers learn about hurricanes. They also learned what it
means to be a leader and the many ways the Red Cross saves lives. The students will be
using all these skills during this year's summer camp. Students are pictured with Instruc-

CREW volunteers make a difference


CREW Inc volunteers and staff
worked diligently repairing door-
ways, walls, roofs, ceilings while
the rest of us enjoyed our holiday
weekend. A CREW from a Lake-
land Methodist Church worked in
Ortona, Buckhead Ridge and
Clewiston all weekend. In addition,
over 80 recliner chairs as well as
other furniture that was donated
made it to homes who had furni-
ture destroyed in the hurricane.
Executive Director, Trish
Adams, LCSW stated "I know resi-
dents are anxious to have repairs
done and are worried about
upcoming storms as we prepare
for a new hurricane season" how-
ever she cautions clients to realize


that CREW is a "long term recovery
organization". "It may takes years
to meet the needs of all 611 open
cases with the limited donation,
volunteers and grant money that
CREW currently has. We have suc-
cessfully closed due to completely
meeting hurricane related needs or
successfully referring to other
appropriate organizations 51
clients since inception in January."
First United Methodist Church
members, the Clewiston Bakery
and Deli and Common Grounds
Coffee Shop all volunteered to
make meals that CREW employ-
ees delivered to the various volun-
teer groups this past weekend,
They have two more CREWs com-


ing in June and possible three in
July. Renee Mergott, Volunteer
Coordinator, relates that "We will
need homes (or places for them to
sleep and shower) and volunteers
to provide meals to the. CREWs
coming". Trish Adams adds that
"As always, donation of supplies,
including ladders, tools, drywall,
roofing material, paneling, wood,
screws, paint, etc. are always need-
ed. Good, clean mattresses are also
a welcome and needed donation."
CREW has been building
momentum and with the recent
hiring of Case Management Super-
visor, Akiva Johnson and Volunteer
Coordinator they have been able to
recruit and organize for volunteers


better. However, come July their
staff will be significantly reduced as
they loose funding for many of
their case managers employed
through a partnership with United
Way and Workforce Development.
They are also hoping to secure
funding for a construction coordi-
nator, who can oversee projects
and complete projects as well.
Trish Adams encourages "resi-
dents of Hendry and Glades coun-
ties to help by adequately prepar-
ing for the upcoming hurricane
season as well as helping out their
neighbors in the process of recov-
ery."

Florida faces water issues


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
When it comes to water, it
seems that the first thought is
drainage ditches: dig a ditch,
clean a ditch or culvert, "How
deep will the mud be after all that
rain last night?" But, there is a flip
side. Winter the dry season.
The weather cools, it rarely rains,
as the humidity drops we breathe
a sign of relief. But as more and
more people move to Florida, the
same amount of water has further
and further to go around. Every-
body wants water. The further it
has to go, the shallower it gets but
nothing makes more rain.
South Florida does not have a
continuous source of fresh water
except rain. As more land is built
up, more people move in, more
clothes and dishes to wash, to
drive to work on roads, to work in
new offices, shop in stores. Not
only that, but because rain runs
off roofs and pavement. With
fewer places to keep it, more rain
drains into lakes and canals that
lead to the ocean, rather than
soaking back into the ground.
Florida has to plan its water
supply because, unlike some
other-areas of the country, South
Florida does not have, for all prac-
tical purposes, a continuous
source of fresh water except the
rain that falls. As more land is built
on, more water is needed
because more rain runs off roofs
and pavement, to canals that lead
to the ocean, rather than soaking
back into the ground.
Rainfall feeds the aquifers
(underground water) that supply
close to 90 percent of South and
Central Florida's water and rain
can be scariest when demand is
highest (because it isn't raining),
then communities have water
restrictions.
But there are areas that share a
water flow from lake to lake or
river to lake, etc., so in the 1970s,
the state set up "districts" where
water flow is common. These dis-
tricts are called water manage-
ment districts. Water manage-
ment districts decide howv much
water to drain off to the ocean,
and how much water to save for
later use. There are five such dis-
tricts. Okeechobee County is pri-
marily in the South Florida Water


Management District (SFWMD),
which is divided into four water
supply planning regions: Kissim-
mee Basin, Upper East Coast,
Lower East Coast and Lower
West Coast. Each region's water
supply plan is based on at least
20-year future planning and fol-
lows Subsection 373.0361 (1) of
the Florida Statutes.
Keeping clean
water flowing
SFWMD issues permits for pri-
vate, city or county water plants to
pump a certain amount of water
from the ground or lakes to treat
and deliver (for a price), to the
homes and businesses they serve.
(They know how much will be
needed, so they know how much
can be allowed to drain into the
ocean.) The water plants, in turn,
are overseen by the state's
Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP).
The DEP protects the quality of
Florida's drinking water, its rivers,
lakes and wetlands. DEP estab-
lishes the basis for setting the
standards.of purity for the state's
surface water and ground water
and monitors to be sure the quali-
ty stays okay.
DEP also handles the permit
and enforcement programs for
our drinking water, waste water
(sewer), septic tanks, wells and a
myriad of activities in wetlands
and other surface waters. This
agency also provides money to
build or improve domestic waste-
water and drinking water facili-
ties, to reclaim mined lands, and
to implement stormwater man-
agement and manage other
sources of water, like reclaimed
water for irrigation.
SFWMD plans for
sufficient water
SFWMD is divided into four
major water supply planning
regions Kissimmee Basin (North
and South), Upper East Coast,,
Lower East Coast and Lower
West Coast. Each regional water
supply plan is based on:
1. At least 20-year future plan-
ning and follows Subsection
373.0361(1) of the Florida
Statutes.
2. The impacts of future


demands on the water resources
that we have.
3. Water resource related natu-
ral systems like wetlands.
People in each of the, four
regions have a say in SFWMD's
decisions through the Water
resource Advisory Committee
(WRAC) of SFWMD which acts as
liaison between SFWMD and
people of the district on the sub-
ject of water supply planning.
Since each of the four regions has
its own unique set of issues, the
committee is made up of a very
diverse group of people from
each of the four regions of
SFWMD. Anyone can go to a
WRAC meeting to listen or ask
questions.
Taking a look at each of our
district's four regions, it is easy to
see why they are so different.
Kissimmee
Basin Region
The Kissimmee Basin (KB),
roughly down along the Kissim-
mee River, was divided into north-
ern and southern areas to focus
on the issues unique to each.
North: Continued use of
ground water to support the large
projected population growth in
Orange and Osceola Counties is
the primary issue.
South: increased surface water
use in the Lake Istokpoga-Indian
Prairie Basin resulting from pro-
jected increased agriculture was
identified as the primary issue of
concern.
Upper East
Coast Area
The Upper East Coast Area
(UEC) includes all of Martin and
St. Lucie counties, and a small
portion of Okeechobee County.
The predominant land use has
been and will be agriculture. Cit-
rus occupies over four-fifths of the
irrigated agricultural acreage in
the region. Scattered among
these land uses are about 200,000
acres of upland forests and wet-
lands.
The area is projected to have
over a 50 percent increase in pop-
ulation from 2000 levels to almost
a half a million people. Agricul-
ture primarily citrus in the
western portion of the region is


projected to decrease slightly due
to current industry markets, and
pressure from developers, but in
addition to people's needs, there
are many coastal and inland envi-
ronmental areas in this region
that depend on water to exist.

Lower West
Coast Area
The Lower West Coast Plan-
ning Region is expected to have
an increased population of
almost 70 percent from 1995 lev-
els by 2020, with most growth in
the coastal areas. This means
increased demands for drinking
and irrigation water.
Likewise, agriculture primari-
ly citrus and sugarcane in the
eastern portion of the region is
projected to increase by 10. per-
cent. In addition, there are many
coastal and inland environmental
resources within this area. Meet-
ing people's water needs and the
water needs of the environment
makes development of water sup-
ply strategies absolutely neces-
sary to the economic and envi-
ronmental sustainability of the
area.

Lower East Coast
The Lower East Coast region
includes all of Palm Beach,
Broward and Miami-Dade Coun-
ties, the Florida Keys, plus por-
tions of seven other counties
around Lake Okeechobee and
along the Caloosahatchee River.
Its population expected to
grow significantly between now
and 2020, increasing by almost 58
percent from 1995. Most of this
increase in population will occur
in the coastal area, which is pro-
jected to have almost seven mil-
lion residents in 2020.
The region also includes more
than one-half million acres of
profitable agriculture and world-
renowned ecosystems such as
The Everglades, Lake Okee-
chobee, Florida Bay and Biscayne
Bay.

renovations completed

Regional Medical Center has
completed renovations of the

the Emergency Room and Out-
patient Services are now operat-
ing in their normal locations.


Letter to the Editor


Doctor appreciated
.We are at a loss to understand
why Hendry Regional Medical
Center will run the risk of losing
one of our best doctors, Dr. Adrian
Fedele. He is one of South Florida's
best surgeons. He his late wife and
son have been an active and caring
part of our community ever since
their arrival here.
Many of us cannot drive to West
Palm Beach or Ft. Myers for med-
ical care. We do not need a retired
surgeon here at Hendry Regional
Medical Center we need Dr.
Fedele.
Hopefully the "power that be"
at Hendry Regional will reconsider
this decision.
Respectfully,
Lewis and Lois Blount

Benefit planned
U-Save Supermarket in Clewis-
ton is having a benefit yard
sale/bake sale on June 10and 11.
All proceeds will go to help send
Dawn Reese to Hawaii.


Dawn has been fighting cancer
for three years now. She was the
dairy manager in the Clewiston
store for nine years, until complica-
tions from chemotherapy forced
her to quit last November. Dawn's
dream has always been to see
Hawaii, but it has been a rough
road for her, with several opera-
tions behind her and a few yet to
face. Dawn keeps looking forward
never back. She always had a smile
on her face and a pleasant word for
everyone who came into her dairy
department. So we at U-Save
would like to keep Dawn smiling
and make her Hawaiian dream
come true: For more information
contact Sharon at (863)902-1224.

Steve Burlison will teach fifth grade
and head the development depart-
ment. Mrs. Vivian Mathis will lead
the preschool and teach our three
and four year olds. Mrs. Krista Mills

building the CCS team. Mr. Douglas
will continue to work for the
school as a consultant. Mrs. Burli-
son brings over 25 years of experi-
ence in public and Christian educa-

shortly. CCS continues to strive for
academic excellence and is com-
mitted to providing our students
with the highest quality teachers.
To that end, we are excited
about the recent additions to the

was raised. $40,000 has been ear-
marked for financial assistance and
scholarships. Over $10,000 was
specified for technology and
library. The United State Sugar Cor-
poration also gave the school an
additional $25,000 which now
brings the total money given and
pledged to the school to over

Clewiston Middle School says 'goodbye' Clewiston Middle School
WT Wb 11


The two Clewiston Middle
School employees pictured above
retired this year. They are Mildred
Hankins, Media Specialist and
Cecelia Jones, School Nurse. Mrs.
Hankins was the first teacher
hired for the new Clewiston Mid-
dle School when it was built in
1971 and is the last of the original
group of teachers at that school to
retire. She taught Social Studies


for 28 years and then entered the
Master's program in Media Edu-
cation at Nova and became Media
Specialist in 1999, a job which she
has held until her retirement. She
has operated the library with
great efficiency, which has bene-
fited the students and faculty of
Clewiston Middle School.
Cecelia Jones began her
career with the Hendry County


School District in the 70's when
she was a substitute teacher at
Labelle High and Middle Schools.
She then went to nursing school
and began her nursing career in
1978 at the Florida Community
Health Center in Clewiston, also
known as the "Dome". She has
been the nurse at Clewiston Mid-
dle School since 1992 and has
helped the students and faculty


with medications, illness and
injuries.
Many family, friends and col-
leagues enjoyed the retirement
dinner May 23 at Sonny's Banquet
Room. The honorees were pre-
sented with gifts and enjoyed a
slide show from past years.
Clewiston Middle School wishes
them the best in their well-
deserved retirement.

The 411 on Super Heroes and Sidekicks Al, 4


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Every Batman needs a Robin.
Some go it alone, but the reality is
that super heroes are more super
when they have someone working
behind the scenes and out of the
lime-light to help them save the day.
Last year, Disney released a
movie called Sky High. Sky High is
a special high school campus that
floats above the clouds built for the
children of super heroes. Some-
times the children of superheroes
have super powers and sometimes
they don't. When freshmen arrive
at Sky High, they are .sorted into
two tracks: Those with recognized
super powers take hero classes,
and those who don't have such
super powers take sidekick classes.
The purpose of the super heroes
and the sidekicks is to serve and
save the citizens from danger and
villainous acts. Some of those with
super powers take sidekicks for
granted. One of the lessons in the
movie is that the works and gifts of


the sidekicks, though often over-
looked and minimized, often pro-
vide the foundation needed in
order to accomplish what must be
done to save the day.
In the movie, the main players
are super heroes, sidekicks, and cit-
izens. *
Some people in the church get
the idea that these same categories
also relate to the kinds of Christians
we have. We have heroes of the
Bible and church history. The
preachers who haven't reached
hero status yet, along with the
devoted lay people who do most of
the work, are sidekicks. The citi-
zens are the bystanders who come
and worship when they can.
I would caution everyone not to
fall into the trap of believing that
pastors are called to be disciples on
behalf of the citizens. Seminary is
not Sky High where those called go
to learn super hero stuff. God calls
some of us to ordination, but God
calls ALL of us to discipleship.
The truth is there is only one
superhero Jesus. Most of us get


that idea.
But the truth also is that we are
not called to be citizens. We are
called to be sidekicks. God calls all
of us to work closely with Him for
His purposes. We are sidekicks
called to ministry, to a purpose big-
ger than ourselves, bigger than our
families, bigger than our dreams.
And similar to the movie, it's the
efforts of the sidekicks (the back-
ground people) that help make the
hero shine and the day happen.
Some of the disciples wanted
Jesus to be a superhero-who would
stay forever, reigning in might and
splendor. Instead, God worked the
miracle of resurrection and Pente-
cost and left the church in charge.
That's us!
God is the hero, hard at work in
the person of Christ and the power
of the Holy Spirit. All of God's peo-
ple are called to be the sidekicks,
called to give of themselves so that
the hero can save the day.
Not only that, we are the heirs of
the sidekicks of previous genera-
tions. We have been blessed by the


stories of their faithfulness, the
communities they formed, the
churches they built, and the mis-
sions and ministries they began.
We continue the work they started.
This ministry changes and
evolves. Sometimes it grows, some-
times it disappears. But it is always
replaced with a new ministry for a
new day. We are the sidekicks who
work with the Hero to build the
kingdom of God in our day.
Together we are called to dream
big dreams for the future of God's
church as we tell the story to new
generations. We must tell the good
news to our children.
We must reach our youth. We
must seek out the stranger in our
midst, the newcomer, the immi-
grant; and welcome them. We
must bring healing to the broken,
food to the hungry, and release to
the imprisoned. God needs side-
kicks in this day, in this place, to
continue to build the foundation
needed in order to accomplish
what must be done. That's us!


Telling the truth; to censor or not to censor


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I served as a part of a committee
for a student's doctoral dissertation.
She had chosen to study a group of
people in hopes of helping them
but part of her study revealed nega-
tive things. She asked her commit-
tee if she should tell them. I was a
bit surprised by her question. She
had done an honest piece of work
and those she studied knew about
it. What she found was done in
hopes of helping someone but it
didn't seem to come out that way. I
told her that the people studied had
a right to know; for better or for
worse.
I hear of studies persons and
companies in medically-related
fields that concealed harmful parts
of their research. Withholding the
truth is wrong when it affects per-
sons and is doubly wrong when it
is self-serving or has selfish inter-
ests for withholding it.


There is a difference between
censorship to protect youngsters
and censorship to manipulate peo-
ple or push one's own interest.
There is something about human
nature that makes us want to know
and peoplle get (rightfully) angry
when something is withheld that
keeps them from making the best
decisions f@r themselves.
I grew up with little in the way of
censorship, but was challenged to
think about what I read or saw.
Against a background.of values,
and, learning to think for myself, lit-
tle was forbidden or censored. One
summer, someone gave us a
bushel basket full of paperback
books. There were westerns, nov-
els, mysteries, history books, fic-
tion, and an old copy of Emile
Zola's Nana. This original version
had no racy descriptions or inti-
mate details spelled out. It was,
though, a story of how human
weakness and manipulation of
people brought the downfall of
people who let their emotions


overrule their reason. Later, when
an avant-garde movie came out
(tame by today's standards; risqu6
in its day) everyone worried about
who should or should not see it. I
saw it with a family member and
quickly realized the story had no
real plot; shallow characters parad-
ing through each other's lives and
nothing to offer. We need to be
given values in order for us to be
able to make decisions our own
best decisions.
What seems to be passed off as
"entertainment" is best censored by
people who see it for what it is and
who let others know that there is
really nothing there to see. We don't
teach values to give people their
own measuring-sticks for what is
worthwhile and what is not; relying
on imposing censorship and trying
to keep people from finding out
what they should be able to accept
or reject on their own.
Jesus spoke about telling the
truth; all of it. He was challenged
one day by a group of Pharisees


and He told them what He had
heard that came from God. They
didn't seem to understand. He
exhorted them to hold to God's
teaching saying "Then you will
know the truth and the truth will set
you free (John 8:32)." You learn the
truth by searching and testing;
preferably on your own, and when
that is not possible, by using trusted
sources. When people honestly
search, theywill be rewarded; truth
will indeed set us free to know
what to believe and do and how to
act. When truth is withheld, people
play "God" and pretend to know
better. That's not our place; we
help others become themselves
when we help them find out about
what affects them and how they
should decide or act.
The truth, no matter how
unpleasant, disliked, uncomfort-
able it may be, let us better become
what God intended us to be and
ultimately sets us free to be that,
person. It will finally make us a lot
happier too.

Cranes a common sight locally


Cranes have long inspired the
human imagination with their
tall and elegant stature, longevity
and complex mating and
courtship behaviors. Their
bugling or rattling calls are
haunting and beautiful. Florida
is fortunate to attract and sup-
port three members of the crane
family. Florida sandhill cranes,
numbering 4,000 to 5,000, are
non-migratory Florida residents.
They are joined every winter by
25,000 migratory greater sand-
hill cranes from the Great Lakes
region. Sandhill cranes are seen
in pastures, prairies and fresh-
water wetlands in peninsular
Florida from the Everglades to
the Okefenokee Swamp.
The two subspecies found in
Florida are indistinguishable
from each other; both have gray
plumage and an unfeathered
carmine red crown.
The third member of the
crane family found in Florida is
the endangered whooping
crane, which was first reintro-
duced to the Kissimmee Prairie
region in 1993. Whoopers once
wintered in Florida, but hunting
and habitat loss eliminated the
Florida population by the 1920s.
The birds were on the verge of
extinction in the 1940s and
today only about 275 birds
remain in the wild. More than
250 captive-reared whooping
cranes have been released in
Florida since 1993 and about 90
survive today. The whooping
cranes in this reintroduced pop-
ulation are not migratory, and
scientists expect that with suc-
cessful reproduction, the popu-
lation will eventually be self-sus-
taining.
Efforts to establish a migrato-
ry population of whooping
cranes began during the sum-
mer of 2000, with a pilot project
testing the successful rearing
and human-lead migration of

Sandhill cranes are often seen in pastures in Okeechobee
County where they easily coexist with cattle and horses.


eleven Sandhill Crane chicks
that wintered in the Chassahow-
itzka National Wildlife Refuge
north of Tampa and returned to
Necedah National Wildlife
Refuge in central Wisconsin in
April of 2001.
Since then, a group of ten
whooping cranes also followed
the phenomenal path of being
raised by humans in puppet cos-
tumes resembling a parent
'whooper', and then trained to
follow an ultra-light airplane
from Wisconsin to Chassohow-
itzka National Wildlife Refuge
for the fall migration. In early fall
of 2002, the five survivors of the
original ten will be joined by a
new set of 17, now in training, to
make the fall migration to Flori-


years old. They form pair bonds
that may endure for many years.
Nests are usually built over
standing water. Within 24 hours
of hatching, the young are capa-
ble of following their parents
away from the nest. Together,
they forage for seeds and roots,
crop plants such as corn and
peanuts, insects, snakes, frogs
and occasionally young birds or
small mammals.
Cranes are quite omnivorous
feeding on seeds, grain, berries,
insects, earthworms, mice,
small birds, snakes, lizards,
frogs, crayfish, but do not "fish"
like herons.

WEST PALM BEACH Con-
sumer Credit Counseling Ser-
vice (CCCS) of Palm Beach
County and the Treasure Coast,
a branch of CCCS of Atlanta,
Ga., and the CredAbility Net-
work, is now offering online
bankruptcy counseling and
education in Spanish. This
unique, completely interactive
service is available through the
agency's Web sites: www.ccc-
sinc.org and at www.cccsenes-
panol.org.
The CredAbility Network of
CCCS agencies in North Geor-
gia, South Florida, East Ten-
nessee and central Mississippi
is committed to helping bank-
ruptcy clients and their attor-
neys meet the credit counseling
and education requirements by
the Bankruptcy Abuse Preven-
tion and Consumer Protection
Act, which took effect Oct. 17,
2005.
"We are happy to be able to
fill the requests for Spanish
service we have been receiving
since last fall when we were
approved to provide bankrupt-
cy counseling," said Jessica
Cecere, president of CCCS of
Palm Beach County. "Helping
bilingual consumers with criti-
cal financial issues in their first
language is an important part
of serving our service delivery
model," Ms. Cecere said.
Increased service to bilin--.
gual consumers is a logical pro-
gression for CCCS; the agency
began counseling in Spanish in
1996 and has maintained one
of the few financial education
Web sites in Spanish since
2003, providing helpful tips to
more than 2,000 Spanish-
speakers each month.
"We are also pleased to be
able to provide the required
education course online in
Spanish," said Christie Hard-
castle, Hispanic outreach coor-

dinator for CCCS Palm Beach
County. Credit counseling with-
in 180 days of filing for bank-
ruptcy protection and pre-dis-
charge education are both
required by new law.
Bankruptcy pre-filing coun-
seling costs $50 per household
and is available online, via tele-
phone or in-person in 17 offices
in CredAbility service areas of
north Georgia, south Florida,
east Tennessee and central Mis-
sissippi. The pre-discharge edu-
cation course also costs $50 per
household and is available
online or in classroom settings
in CredAbility service areas.
As a leading national
provider of bankruptcy coun-
seling and education, CCCS is
setting the standard for bilin-
gual service online, over the
telephone and through its
branch office network and
community education sites. For
the past ten years, CCCS Palm
Beach County has been provid-
ing Hispanic outreach services,
with support from community
and financial organizations.
The CredAbility Network
served more than 132,000 peo-
ple in 2005; about 10 percent of
this education and counseling
was in Spanish.

long as the lake levels are down,
the need to evacuate is signifi-
cantly reduced, but identifying
the specific benchmarks that
will trigger an evacuation is
something that emergency plan-
ners have yet to pin down.
As a point of reference, and in
response to individuals express-
ing concern that their homes
will flood if the dike breaks, Mr.
Duba said that the average ele-
vation in Clewiston is 17 feet,
well above the lake's current
level of 12.61 feet. Individual
areas can be higher or lower, he
said.
Additionally, the Corps is con-
tinually monitoring the situation.
The Corps has at its disposal
65,000 tons of rock and 1,000
"super sandbags," near the dike
that it can use to contain any
piping issues that appear at the
dike.

meetings aimed at preparing the
official evacuation document,
which will include the myriad
number of issues dealing with
transportation issues, official
inundation maps and other
evacuation measures,.
In the meantime, residents
are being asked to prepare indi-
vidual emergency plans in the
event of an evacuation. Every
family should have a personal
plan they should implement
now, expecting never to use it,
but being ready if they should
have to.
Thomas Kochheiser, director
of Hendry County Emergency
Management, said this planning
effort for families is essential.
"Develop a plan. Test the
plan. Make sure the plan works
and then implement the plan,"
Mr. Kochheiser said at the meet-
ing. "Get out of Dodge, when it's
time to get out of Dodge."
George Horn with the South
Florida Water Management Dis-

make their voices heard with
their elected officials, to push

Any business that is interested
in participating in the contest
must fill out an entry form, which
can be obtained at the Clewiston
Chamber office or at city hall. All
entry forms must be turned in to
City Hall.
All business or stores partici-
pating in the contest must be dec-
orated by June 27, and will be
judged on the afternoon of June
28. All winners will be
announced during the Fourth of
July celebration at the John Boy
Auditorium Tuesday, July 4.


the dike strengthened through a
$300 million, 20-year plan.
"The threats ate real. The
repairs need to be made and
they need to be made expedi-
tiously," Mr. Horn, whose
agency commissioned a report
that brought the dike issue to.the
forefront last month, grabbing
even the governor's attention,
said.
Responding to a woman who
asked how she could persuade
some of the more stubborn resi-
dents to leave, Mr. Kochheiser
didn't mince words.
"We'll issue them toe tags.
When you're told to leave,
leave," he said.

Are you ready



for hurricanes?


By Loma Jablonski
INI Florida
Hurricane season, as all Florid-
ians know, runs from June 1 until
Nov. 30 of each year. With the
2006 hurricane season here, now
is the time to prepare your home
for the possibility of a hurricane
strike.
The following is a partial
check list in preparing your home
to withstand a hurricane. The
National Weather Service has
compiled a list of things to do to
prepare your home for hurricane
season.
Outside of your
home:
Cut back tree limbs that
hang over your house. Trees pro-
vide shade and help keep your
home cool, but those same tree
limbs can come crashing through
your roof and windows.
Put all loose items such as
lawn furniture, barbecue grills,
potted or handing plants, garbage
cans, etc. inside your house,
garage or tool shed. High winds
can blow these type of items
around like guided missiles.
Make sure your tool shed is
properly anchored down. If high
winds break up your shed, every-
thing inside of it becomes a
potential threat to property and
people.
Window protection:
Windows must be protected
against wind and flying debris.
Once a window is broken, hurri-
cane winds can not only destroy
the room the window is in, but it
can tear the roof right off your
home. There are many ways to
protect your windows including
roll-down storm shutters, storm
panels or plywood. Duct tape
offers absolutely no protection
against the high winds of a hurri-
cane. Do not waste your time or
money taping up windows.
Plywood is the least expen-
sive way to protect your win-
dows, and the thicker plywood
the better the protection. The
major disadvantages to using ply-
wood are the time and hard work
it takes to put it up.
Storm panels are usually
made of steel or aluminum. They
attach to the walls around win-
dows and doors. They usually
slide into place on tracks that are
permanently installed around
each window or door. Installation
is supposed to be a lot faster than


plywood because you simply
slide the panels onto the track
and secure them, but as you
know, we've all gotten to be
experts at quickly putting up ply-
wood sheets.
Roll-down shutters attach
above the windows and doors.
They roll up and store in a box
when not in use. You can quickly
lower and secure them. Experts
consider these the best way to
protect your home and the easi-
est to use, but they are also the
most expensive to have installed.
Double doors and garage
doors: Make sure your double
front doors secure properly. The
total wind pressure on a door is
centered on the lock and latch.
Most doors should be strength-
ened by latch systems or addition-
al surface mounted slide bolts to
distribute wind's pressure. If slide
bolts cannot be used, 2 x 4s bolt-
ed across the inside and,outside
of the door are an effective alter-
native. Storm panels and roll-
down shutters can also be used to
protect these doors.
If your home was built before
1993, the standard garage door is
only wind-rated to 50 mph. New
garage doors with steel bracing
can withstand winds up to 150
mph.
If you do have an older garage
door, bracing kits are available at
hardware and home improve-
ment centers. You may also
attach wooden 2 x 6 stiffeners
approximately 18-inches apart,.
running the full width of the door.
As a last resort, park your vehicle
against the inside of thegarage
door to help prevent it from bow-
ing in and popping off the tracks.
Check out your generator to
make sure it is working properly.
Put the extension cords, oil and
gasoline in an area that is easily
accessible. Do not store the gaso-
line inside your home. Do not
attempt to operate your generator
inside your home. Have battery-
operated radios and flashlights
handy.
Remember, we've all been
through this before so take the
time now to prepare so that you
don't have to panic later.


Generators still top storm supply list


By Loma Jablonski
INI Florida
After the past two hurricane
seasons, we have learned how
much we depend on electricity
in our daily lives. Without elec-
tricity we quickly learned first
hand what it was like to live in
Florida prior to Edison inventing
the light bulb. Oil lamps, candles
and flashlights were worth their
weight in gold.
Unless you were lucky
enough to have a gas stove,
cooking had to be done on a
grill. It's amazing what can be
cooked on a gas or charcoal
grill.
Those of us living in the coun-
try were quickly reminded that
without power our well pumps
were worthless. So we bathed in
our swimming pools, ponds and
even ditches. There were people
cleaning up in the flooded park-
ing lot of North Lake Plaza.
In true pioneer fashion, we
lugged 5-gallon buckets of water
into our bathrooms to flush the
toilets.
We became experts on how
long a bag of ice could keep
food cold. Even more important-
ly, we became our grandparents
waiting in long lines for food,
water and ice like they did dur-
ing the Great Depression.
Having been through all of
this over the past two years,
many residents of Okeechobee
have decided that "enough is
enough." What we endured
over the past two summers has
educated us as to what we need
to have to be truly prepared for
the upcoming hurricane season.
Other than packing up and
getting out of the path of an
upcoming hurricane, the con-
sensus of opinion in Okee-
chobee is that one of the most
important items on a hurricane
preparedness list is the purchase
a generator.
With. generators so high on
everyone's list, now is the time
to purchase one if you haven't
already done so. If you do pur-
chase a new unit, do not leave it
in its box until needed. Take it.
out of its box and familiarize
yourself with the unit. Test it to
make sure it works. If you have
an existing generator or get a
used one, check it out to make
sure that it is still in good work-
ing condition. If not, have it pro-
fessionally serviced now. You
will not be able to have it
worked on right before an
impending storm.
With all the generators being


purchased, it is extremely
important to use caution when
operating them. Generators can
create hazards for homeowners
and electric utility workers.
Make sure to always read and
follow the manufacturer's safety
and operating instructions.
Carbon monoxide is a color-
less, odorless and tasteless poi-
son gas. It is a component of the
exhaust from a generator's
engine. This gas is deadly. Never
run your generator inside your
home. or garage. Only run the
generator outdoors in a well-
ventilated, dry area away from
the air intakes to your home.
Plug your individual appli-
ances into the generator using a
heavy duty, outdoor rated exten-
sion cord with a wire gauge ade-
quate for the appliance load. Do
not operate more appliances
and equipment than the output
rating of the generator; to do so
will overload and damage the
generator and could cause a fire.
If your generator is connect-
ed to the house wiring, the
home must have a transfer
switch installed by a licensed
electrician. A transfer switch
connects your house to the gen-
erator and disconnects it from
the utility power. This will pre-
vent backfeeding, which ener-
gizes the electrical circuits out-
side your home.
Backfeeding usually occurs
when a generator is connected
directly to the electric panel or
circuit in the home. Feeding
power back into the utility sys-
tem during an outage will ener-
gize the transformer serving the
house and could.pose a serious
problem to crews working to
restore power in the area.
Use the following guide as a
rule of thumb when purchasing
a generator.
A 1,000 watt recreational
generator is for boating, camp-
ing and limited outdoor use.
A 5,500 watt generator will
run limited lighting, radio, televi-
sion, refrigerator, sump pump
and microwave up to the capaci-
ty of the unit.
A 7,500 watt generator will
run limited lighting, radio, televi-
sion, refrigerator, sump pump,
microwave and other various
low watt electrical devices up to
the capacity of the unit.

Safeguard your financial records from damage


With the approach of hurricane
season, the Internal Revenue Ser-
vice encourages taxpayers to safe-
guard their records.
Some simple steps can help tax-
pavers and businesses protect
financial and lax records in case of
hurricanes and other disasters.
"Even if you don't live in an area
prone to hurricanes, this is an
excellent time to take a few min-
utes to help safeguard financial
documents that can be hard to
replace," said Kevin Brown, Com-
missioner of the IRS Small Busi-
ness/Self-Employed Division. Listed
below are tips for individuals and
businesses by .ax professionals
and the IRS on maintaining finan-
cial and tax records.
Paperless
recordkeeping
Many people receive bank state-
ments and documents by e-mail.
This method is an outstanding way
to secure financial records. Impor-
tant tax records such as W-2s, tax
returns and other paper docu-
ments can be scanned onto an
electronic format.
"New technologies provide tax-
payers with new opportunities to
keep their records secure," said E.
Martin Davidoff, chairman, Tax
Liaison Committee, American
Association of Attorney-Certified
Public Accountants (AAA-CPA).
"Many people are now receiving
bank statements and documents
via e-mail. One approach, using a
scanner to fill in the gaps of elec-
tronic commerce, is to have all
financial records in electronic for-
mat. By doing so, one can copy all
of their records onto a 'key' or
'jump drive' periodically. Those
keys can be sent to a relative in
another city for, safe-keeping in
case one's normal computer back-
up systems are destroyed."
Other options include copying
files onto a CD or DVD. Also, many
retail stores sell computer software

packages that you can use for
recordkeeping.
"Disasters such as hurricanes
can't be prevented," said Dennis B.
Drapkin, chair, American Bar Asso-
ciation (ABA) Section of Taxation.
"But the disruption they cause can
be reduced. Remember to safe-
guard and backstop.your. most
important records: Store them in a
safe place. Back-up your electronic
files. Make duplicates where possi-
ble and keep them in a separate
location."
Document
valuables
One option is to photograph or
videotape the contents in your
house, especially items of greater
value. The IRS has a disaster loss
workbook ( Publication 584) that
can help you compile a room-by-
room list of your belongings.
"This will help you recall and
prove the market value of items for
insurance and casualty loss
claims," said Tom Ochsenschlager,
vice president-taxation, American
Institute of Certified Public Accoun-


tants (AICPA). "Be sure to store the
photos with a friend or family
member who lives away from the
geographic area at risk."
Proximity to your home should
not be your main concern when
choosing a location to store impor-
tant records. Remember, a disaster
that strikes your home is also likely
to affect facilities nearby, making
quick retrieval of your records diffi-
cult or impossible.
Check on
Fiduciary Bonds
Employers who :use payroll
service providers should ask the
provider if they have a fiduciary
bond in place. The bond could pro-
tect the employer in the event of
default by the payroll service
provider.
Update Emergency Plans
Emergency plans should be
reviewed annually. Personal and
business situations change over
time and so do preparedness
needs. Individual taxpayers should
make sure they are saving docu-
ments everybody should keep


including such things as W-2s,
home closing statements and
insurance records. When employ-
ers hire new employees or when a
company or organization changes
functions, plans should be updated
accordingly and employees should
be informed of the changes.
Count on the IRS
In the event of a disaster, the IRS
stands ready to help. The IRS has
valuable information you can
request if your records are
destroyed.
SImmediately after a casualty,
you can request a copy of a return
and all attachments (including
Form W-2) by using Form 4506,
Request for Copy of Tax Return.
If you just need information
from your return, you can order ,a
transcript by calling 1-800-829-1040
or using Form 4506-T, Request for
Transcript of Tax Return. There is
no fee for a transcript. Transcripts
are available for the current year
and returns processed in the three
prioryears.


In case you are not sure
about how much wattage you
use, the following guide has
some of the more common
household electrical appliances
and their wattage. The RW is the
running wattage or amount of
wattage required to run the
appliance, and the SW is the
starting wattage, or the amount
of wattage required to start the
appliance.

(SW) 6,500; Air conditioners -
40,000 btu (RW) 6,000, (SW)
7,800.
.Always check the amount of
wattage the appliance requires
before plugging it into a genera-
tor. If the box or paperwork of
the appliance does not list the
wattage, the formula to figure
wattage is: amps xvolts = watts.
As you can see, it is important
to choose the size of generator
that is right for you. It is also
important to only use those
appliances that. are absolutely
necessary for your basic needs.
Generators are not meant to
totally take the place of the elec-
tric company. They are meant to
provide temporary basic elec-
tricity to your home until power
can be restored.
Finally, don't forget that gen-
erators run on gasoline. Make
sure that you have enough gaso-
li e .to .keep.the, generator run-
ning for an extended period of
time. The largest generator you


can purchase will do you no
good without fuel to run it. Read
the instructions for your genera-
tor to ascertain how long the
generator will run on a 5-gallon
can of gas.
Keep in mind, that if the
power is out in town, the gas sta-
tions cannot pump gasoline. So,
have enough on hand to last sev-
eral days. Keep those gas cans in
a dry, well-ventilated place easily
accessible after the storm pass-
es.
Generators are definitely con-
venient and useful. Just remem-
ber to use common sense and
read the directions before using
them.

preparing for it before its arrival.
Below are excerpts from the
Florida Department of Health on
precautions to take after a storm
and how to handle various facets
of daily life.
Food safety:
Do not eat any food that may
have come into contact with con-
taminated water from floods or
tidal surges.
Do not eat canned food if
there is a bulging or opening on the
can or the caps of commercial
drinks.
Save undamaged, commer-
cially canned foods by removing
labels and disinfecting the cans in a
bleach solution of one-fourth cup
bleach in one gallon of water. Re-
label the cans including expiration
date and food type. Assume that
home-canned food is unsafe.
Feed infants only pre-mixed
canned baby formula. Do not use
powdered formulas prepared with
treated water. Use boiled water to
prepare formula.
Frozen and refrigerated foods
can be unsafe after a hurricane.
Without power, refrigerators keep
foods cool for only about four
hours. Throw out thawed and


boiled or disinfected before eating,
after toilet use, after cleanup activi-
ties, and after handling articles con-
taminated by floodwater or
sewage.
Post-hurricane flooding may
mean water contains fecal matter
from sewage systems, agricultural
and industrial waste, and septic
tanks. Keep open cuts or sores
clean by washing them with soap
and disinfected or boiled water.
Apply antibiotic ointment to
reduce the risk of infection. See a
physician if a wound or sore devel-
ops redness, swelling or drainage.
Do not allow children to play
in flood water; it can expose them
to fecal matter. Disinfect toys that
have been in flood water before let-
ting children play with them. Use
one-fourth cup water in one gallon
of water to disinfect toys and other
items.
Power outage,
prevent fire hazard:
Use battery-powered lanterns
and flashlights rather than candles.
If using candles, keep in safe
holders away from curtains, paper,
wood or other flammable items.


illness:
Heavy rains and flooding can
lead to more mosquitoes, which
are most active at sunrise and
sunset.
Protect against mosquitoes
by using these prevention tips:
Avoid being outside at dusk and
dawn; wear clothes that cover
most of your skin; use DEET
repellent, or picaridin and oil of
lemon eucalyptus; get rid of
standing water where mosqui-
toes can lay eggs.
Home clean-up:
Flood water with a hurricane
must be removed as soon as pos-
sible since it may contain material
from overflowing sewage sys-
tems. If there has been a back-
flow of sewage into the house,
take the following measures for
clean-up:
Clean walls, hard-surface
floors and other household sur-
faces with soap and water; disin-
fect with one cup bleach to five
gallons of water.
Disinfect surfaces that come
in contact with food and chil-
dren's play areas.
Wash all linens and clothing


INI Florida
Take warnings seriously
This photo taken after Hurricane Wilma hit the Lake Okeechobee area illustrates why it
is important for those in trailers to evacuate when a hurricane approaches. The high
winds of Hurricane Wilma overturned FEMA trailers at the Okee-Tantie Recreation Area.

These seven little "cut-ups" won't nibble your lawn,
dig up your flowers or put a bite in your budget
(they're made from scrap-plywood). They will add a
touch of whimsy anywhere they're displayed, and
they're so easy to make that the whole family can
join the fun.
Simply trace the full-size patterns onto plywood,
cut them out and decorate following detailed painting
instructions. Apply a sealer and enjoy them for years
in the yard or garden, as a weather vane or even on
the nursery wall.
The plan includes full-size traceable patterns and
painting guides for a calf, a duck, a pig, two puppies,
a rooster and a squirrel and range in size from 12
inches to 16 inches tall.
