County may restrict ATV use


County to reject
statute giving ATVs
access to some roads

By Ideybis Gonzlez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON The Hendry
County Board of Commission-
ers considered a measure at its
Oct. 10 meeting to restrict the
use of ATVs on public roads and
highways, limiting their use to


private property.
Commissioners seemed to
be concerned with a recent
statute adopted by Florida
which does give permission to
ATV users to drive on some
roadways, with restrictions.
The Legislature enacted
Florida Statue 316.2123 this year
that allows motorized dirt bikes
and all-terrain vehicles to be
operated during the daytime by
licensed drivers on unpaved
roadways where the posted
speed limit is less than 35 miles


per hour.
According to the county
commissioners, though, permit-
ting the use of ATVs on its
unpaved roads would be
unsafe, and could lead to acci-
dents or rollovers that can cause
serious injuries or even death.
In addition the board also
discussed the serious risks asso-
ciated with allowing minors and
children to operate an adult
sized ATV on a public road.
ATV's are currently defined
in the statute in technical terms


Starting them off right: Rotary donates dictionaries


This class was just one of the third grade classes at Eastside
received dictionaries from the Rotary Club on Oct. 12.


I il Nicole Curry
Elementary School that


as any motorized. off-highway
vehicles 50 inches or less in
width, weighing 900 pounds or
less, designed to travel on three
or more low pressure tires, hav-
ing a seat designed to be strad-
dled by the operated with no
passenger. That definition also
extends any two-rider ATVs.
In accordance with the law,
Hendry County has the option
of opting out of conforming to
the statute and implementing its
own ordinance to determine the
use of the vehicles locally. The


county is looking at prohibiting
all use of ATVS on county paved
or unpaved roads or streets.
That does not affect residents
who may use the ATVs on pri-
vate property.
Before the final vote on the
ordinance is given, the county
will have to schedule a public
meeting on the issue to give the
community an opportunity to
comment on the proposed ordi-
nance. The issue is expected to
be discussed at a future meeting
of the board of commissioners.


New homes



by Lennar on



track for 2007


Permits allow
project to move
forward

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Close to one
year after Lennar Homes first
proposed its project to build
town homes in Clewiston, con-
struction on the project is set to
begin.
The city of Clewiston has-
issued the project permits to
begin the first stages of con-
struction. The work has also
been reviewed by the building


and zoning department.
With so many interested in
buying a home in Clewiston, the
"Sweet Lake Villas" project is
being looked at closely. The
project plans currently call for
the construction of 80 multi-
family town homes on an eight-
acre parcel of property located
behind the K-Mart Plaza on
Berner Road.
The homes will be two- and
three-bedroom homes ranging
from 1,200 to 2,000 square feet
in size. The gated community
will include a pool, cabana,
playground and full-size fitness
center, according to the pro-

Candidates



seek votes in



Hendry County


After receiving their own dictionaries, students were given a homework assignment by
Principal Mara Duke: their next spelling test would be on a word in the dictionary that
was 45 letters long. They were given an even bigger challenge by Mr. Harris of the
Rotary: whoever could pronounce the word correctly would get five dollars. No one
could pronounce the word, not even the teachers.

Westside students


meet reading goals


By Nicole Curny
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Westside
Elementary School has ended
its first quarter. With many of
the students.: doing well, the
whole school visited the "jun-
gle" in celebration of recent,
successes.
On Oct. 12, Westside Ele-
mentary had a school assem-
bly to recognize the. students
that had done well during the
first quarter. At the beginning
of the school year teachers set
an individual reading go~il lot
their students. The students
that met that goal are now
known as independent read-
ers, which means they can
read by themselves. These stu-
dents were recognized and
received jungle hats to wear for
the remainder of the day.
Other students were also
recognized as being top read-


ers for their grade. The top
readers were given gift cerlil-
Scates to Westside Elementary
School's book fair.
The students had a grand
adventure in the jungle. But the
best surprise of the assembly
was seeing Principal Rick
Shearer and Vice 'Principal
George Duckstein come out
dressed in beach wear. At the
beginning of the school year,
the principals made a promise
to the students: if miost 'of:i the
reading goals foi the first quar-
ter vitire met, the\ would diess
like the\ i erel headed [t: the
beach.
"You kept your end of the
deal by meeting your reading
goals, so we're keeping ours,"
Principal Shearer told the stu-
dents.

Sorority to help



nursing home


Brenda Diaz and Wesley R. Hetcher

Diaz-Hetcher (Cruz), both of Clewiston, are
proud to announce their engage-
The family and friends of Wes- ment. Their upcoming wedding
ley R. Hetcher and Brenda Diaz willbe held in January, 2007.


PAHOKEE The members of
Xi Beta Tau Chapter of Beta Sigma
Phi met at the home of Amy
Schenck on Oct. 5.
Ms. Francine Hennessy,
administrator for the Glades
Health Care Center Nursing
Home in Pahokee was the guest
speaker and gave an informative
overview of both the quality care
given to the patients and the
financial and volunteer needs of
the facility.
To assist with the needs of the
health care center, the members
voted to donate items for the
center's upcoming yard sale on
Nov. 9 and 10, and to donate all
proceeds from their current
drawing.
The chapter currently has a
drawing in place for a $250 gift
certificate for Gilbert's Jewelers


and Gifts. Tickets for the drawing
are $2 each, and may be pur-
chased from any member. The
drawing is set for Dec. 7.
Plans were finalized for the
'Costume Only Party' to be held
on Oct. 28, at the home of Omai-
da and Dennis Milliron in Loxa-
hatchee.
Halloween 'Secret Sister' gifts
were exchanged and all were
treats, no tricks. As the lucky win-
ner of 'Swaparoo,' Kay Korbly
received a beautiful amber glass
pumpkin.
Members present were, Teryl
Collier, Mirtha Graydon, Kay Kor-
bly, Carol Law, Sandy Maynor,
Amy Schenck, Linda Stanley and
Carlene Walker. Those absent
from the meeting were, Frances
Adams, Omaida Milliron, Tina
Provenzale and Sandy Simonson.


Halloween is for animals too, but forego the sweets


BELLE GLADE This year's
tricks could feature things like:
Sit, shake, roll over, or in Hal-
loween fashion, play dead.
While these kinds of Halloween
tricks could be asked of your six-
year-old neighborhood boy
dressed up like a ninja, these
commands should probably be
reserved just for your pets.
Belle Glade Veterinarian, Doc-
tor Noelle Savedoff has some-
thing special planned for that
certain family member that nor-
mally has to forego the Hal-


loween treats, unlike the holi-
days that follow where Spot and
Garfield revel in turkey and ham
leftovers.
Bring a costumed pet into Doc
Savvy's Animal Hospital Hal-
loween day, located at 250 S.E.
First Street, in Belle Glade and
your pet will not leave empty
pawed. Not to worry though,
these treats won't cause your pet
any undo stomach problems
normally associated with Fido
raiding the chocolate bin.
Giving chocolate to your pet is


a definite no-no, says Doc Savvy.
Animals love chocolate, but
chocolate has Theo bromine,
which can cause neurological
conditions and can lead to
seizures.
But Doc Savvy says that those
special members of the family
shouldn't have to be left out of
the fun.
We have special doggie
cheeseburgers called Barn Burg-
ers, for anyone's pets who come
to visit us on Halloween in cos-
tume and maybe some treats for


their owners too, she said.
But the owners have to be in
costume as well, according to
Doc Savvy, who says, each cos-
tumed pet will be photographed
throughout the day and entered
into an overall Halloween cos-
tume contest. A basket filled with
pet goodies, as well as providing
the pet 's annual vaccinations
for free is the grand prize.
Join Doc Savvy during regular
business hours on Halloween
and let your other children enjoy
the spirit of this unique holiday.

Kissimmee River restoration progressing

By MayAnn Morris new szap.com
aINI FloridaIaic
-MdII6 Community ILinks. mdivia ni Voices


Restoration of about half of the
Kissimmee River is making
progress. The channelized river is
being restored from a straight
canal back to a meandering river
that twists and turns back onto
itself over and over again as it
flows south toward Lake Okee-
chobee.
The work is a joint state/feder-
al partnership between South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) and the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers (COE). The
project involves the removal of
weirs and dams, putting the soil
that was piled off to the side when
the river-canal was dug back. This
fills the canal and the water push-
es back into the original river bed.
"The restoration study actually
began before the channelizing
was fully completed," said Dennis
Duke, Chief, Everglades Restora-
tion Division, U.S. Army Crops of
Engineers. "Even before comple-
tion, we saw that, first, no migra-
tory birds came there. There were
no more marshes for them to rest
in. Then the wading birds left
too."
"The $27 million portion of the
$578 million total restoration that
is currently being built is sched-
uled to be finished by October
2007," said Chuck Wilburn, engi-
neer for the COE. "The water level
in the Upper Kissimmee Chain of
Lakes has been increased two
feet to reduce the volume of
water in the river during the rainy
season
"We have seen the migratory
birds returning, even before the
first section was done," said
Joseph Koebel, Jr., environmental
scientist with SFWMD, "and in a
very, very short time, the restored
sections have just the same plants
and wildlife species that the origi-
nal parts did. With the restoration
increasing the dissolved oxygen in
the water, the bass and bluegill
have gone from 38 percent to 68
percent of the total fish communi-
ty."
"There are two trucks hauling
dirt from the spoil bank made
when the channel was dug,"
commented Bill Gaf. "Each truck
holds 18 cubic yards. In this sec-

tion, between 2.5 and 3 million
cubic yards of dirt will be
moved. What that means, is that
if all those trucks were parked
end to end, the line would
stretch 830 to 840 miles -
roughly the distance from Orlan-
do to Washington, D.C."
Out on the most active area of
construction, massive earth
moving equipment ran back and
forth moving loads of dirt with-
out ceasing.
"It's a mile from the edge of
the old spoil bank we're remov-
ing to the edge of the canal chan-
nel we're filling," said David


Quinn, of Quinn Construction,
general contractor for this sec-
tion. "On a good day, we'll do 400
loads."
"The upper Kissimmee will
remain a channel as it is for flood
control, although the lake levels
can go up two feet more. There
are, I think about five large devel-
opments of regional impact in the
planning stages up there, but my
understanding is that as a condi-
tion of approval, these develop-
ments will not be allowed to dis-
charge any water into the
Kissimmee River," said Dennis

edged the local business for pro-
viding many amenities to the
community residents and visitors
with fishing guides that, accord-
ing to them, are considered
among the best in the state.
The business also provides
motels, condos, cabins, the Tiki-
Bar, boat rentals and airboat
tours, Florida bass fishing tourna-
ments, and much more.
"Some of the reasons why the
board awarded Roland Martin
Marina with the Business of the
Year award are because they


worked so hard to maintain the
tournament on schedule, even
after the major hurricane Wilma,"
said Clewiston Chamber Director
Sean Moore, referring to the fish-
ing tournament that went on
despite setbacks caused by the
hurricane.
Roland Martin's also con-
tributes to many local charities
and is always involved in local
community rebuilding efforts, Mr.
Moore said.
"We were very flattered and
surprised," said business owner
MaryAnn Martin. "It was very nice
to be recognized, we are very
thankful for the award," she said.

Chamber Buzz


By Sean Moore
Greetings! Thanks for stopping
by again this week. I promised you
in a past column that I would give a
longer explanation and details
regarding the pumpkin carving
contest at the upcoming Hal-
loween event in Woodworks Park.
Angie Kelley from the Clewiston
Youth Center and I had the oppor-
tunity to speak to the students at
Central Elementary last week
regarding this event, so if any of
them came home and have
bugged you non-stop about
attending and participating -you're
welcome! We also dropped off fly-
ers at the other elementary schools
as they had a pretty booked sched-
ule and we were not able to get in
to speakwith them first hand.
Knowing that children do not
always relay information perfectly,
I thought I should go ahead and
recap the information given for you
here.
First and foremost, the pump-
kin carving contest is open to both
children as well as adults. Every-
one is competing in the same com-
petition against everyone else.
Before you start to think that is not
fair, consider this: Do you really
think a responsible parent is going
to give their 7 year old a knife and
walk away? Exactly! We figure that
the majority of the pumpkins are
going to be a collaborative effort
with monm/dad and the kids so the
playing field is much more level
than you might think.
The rules are pretty simple: All
pumpkins must be carved by the
time they arrive at the park:No last
minute additions or carving will be
permitted. We will not allow a
knife in the park. You must also
have the candle inside the pump-
kin, but not lit up yet. We will han-


die the lighting of the pumpkins.
Other than that though, anything
goes. I have had questions asking
about the various ways the pump-
kins can be carved or if they can
decorate the outside of the pump-
kin as well as carving it. The
answers to those questions are
always the same, absolutely! We
are the most excited about seeing
the creativity of our residents.
There is no entry fee, no pumpkin
size requirements, and no reason
to not enter.
If you have not heard yet and
are beginning to wonder, "What's
in it for me? Why should I enter?" I
guess a $200 first place prize would
be a pretty good reason! Second
place is $100 and third place win-
ner takes home $50. We are hop-
ing that the money involved will
spur on not only the creativity, but
also provide a huge number of
entries in the contest. I think it
would look pretty neat if you have a
dark night and an entire area of
pumpkins lighting up the festivities.
As with any first year event, I am
a little nervous about the entries
that we are going to receive. I
admit that it could either be a huge
monster (no pun intended with
regard to Halloween) event or, it
could resemble the Miami Dol-
phins football season, pretty lame.
Sorry Dolphin fans, you know I am
right!
If you have any questions about
the event, please contact me here
at the Chamber of Commerce
(863) 983-7979. Tell your friends,
tell your family; tell everyone you
know that the contest is open to
them. Then bring your fully carved
pumpkin to Woodworks Park on
Saturday, Oct..28, beginning at 6
p.m.! See you on the 28th, and right
back here next week!

Guest Commentary



Latest news on Corps' efforts on dike


By Col. Paul L. Grosskruger

As the commander of the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers, Jack-
sonville District, I know many peo-
ple are interested in the Herbert
Hoover Dike (HHD). I am writing to
update you on the latest develop-
ments regarding our work to
strengthen the HHD.
An Independent Technical
Review panel has just completed
an evaluation of our project design.
We are now ready to move for-
ward with a new approach based
on this additional professional
advice, including lessons learned
from Hurricane Katrina.
First, let me provide some
background. In the late 1990s,
Jacksonville District published
reports that showed certain areas
of vulnerability in the HHD. By
2000, we had received Congres-
sional approval to proceed with
the design of a project to rehabili-
tate, or reinforce, the HHD. Con-
struction of the first of eight sec-
tions of this project began in
December 2005.
Recent input we received from
a variety of expert sources, includ-
ing lessons learned from Hurricane
Katrina, brought Jacksonville Dis-
trict to convene an Independent


Technical Review (ITR) panel to
further evaluate the design of the
rehabilitation project.
Our existing design was devel-
oped well before Hurricane Katri-
na's devastating impact on the hur-
ricane protection levees in New
Orleans. We believed that before
moving forward, we should apply
the lessons learned in Katrina's
aftermath to ensure that the HHD
would continue to protect lakeside
communities, as it has for more
than 70 years.
The ITR panel included Corps
experts from across the nation, as
well as participants from the South
Florida Water Management District
(SFWMD). This group evaluated
the HHD rehabilitation project
design for the first section of the
project, Reach IA, to.determine if it
was in keeping with applicable cri-
teria, regulations and professional
standards and practices.
After the ITR review, a second
level of evaluation was conduct-
ed. In early September, the Dis-
trict hosted a meeting of about 40
experts, to review the ITR find-
ings and to discuss future actions
for strengthening the HHD. Par-
ticipants included the ITR panel
and additional scientists and
engineers from the SFWMD, URS

(a global engineering design
firm), BCI (authors of the state-
sponsored report released in
May) and the Corps.
The new design concept
agreed upon by this group
includes a seepage berm for
decreasing piping and a cut off
wall for increasing stability. The
design approach will also incor-
porate additional protection fea-
tures, where needed. Looking to
the future, it is important that this
design allows for upgrading, if
and when we determine that to
be necessary.
It is important to note that the
newly-adopted design approach
closely mirrors an alternative that
was developed by the Corps in
2000, but not chosen by the state
and federal partners because it
required additional and costly
acquisition of real estate and may
have impacted regional ground-
water. That decision was based
on the team's knowledge and
best professional judgment at
that time. Now, in this post-Katri-
na environment, factors that pre-
viously shaped our designs and
constrained our decisions have
been put aside by the Corps and
our partners. The project we initi-
ated did meet the objectives iden-


tified in the studies of the 1990s.
The new design solution has
been adopted as we have cast
aside significant constraints. The
new project focuses solely on
public safety and risk reduction
goals.
So where does this put us
today? We're currently working
to expedite the redesign and
resume construction on rein-
forcement of Reach 1A. With
safety as our highest priority, we
will then initiate design and con-
struction in other areas, begin-
ning with those that are most in
need of repair and located on
property that we currently own.
Catastrophic natural disasters
bring quick and dramatic
changes, particularly in the way
we define project goals and eval-
uate project performance. The
Corps will always remain com-
mitted to meeting the needs of
the public by developing the very
best engineering solutions to
control Lake Okeechobee water
levels and to enhance the effec-
tiveness and safety of the dike,
With the state, other federal
agencies and the public as our
partners, we can and will develop
effective solutions that will sup-
port a sustainable south Florida.

Quality Child Care accredited


Central
Elementary News
The 18th Annual Chili Bingo
Family Fun Night was held last
Thursday, Oct. 12. It was one of our
biggest turnouts ever! Thank you to
Mrs. Denault (the event coordina-
tor) along with all the Central Ele-
mentary staff, parents and students
who helped out. We also would
like to thank all the parents, stu-
dents and volunteers from the
entire area who volunteered their
time and made this event a great
success. In addition, thank you to
all the generous donations from
the local businesses and commu-
nity. Last but not least, thank you to
the people of Clewiston for your
participation and enthusiasm. We
are already looking forward to next
year.
Proceeds from the event will go
toward purchasing multimedia
equipment at Central Elementary.
All second grade students will
be performing a musical on Thurs-
day, Oct. 19, at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.
The musical is called "How Does
Your Garden Grow?" It really fol-
lows our school theme of "Garden
of Knowledge" quite well. All the


students have been practicing and
are looking forward to seeing fami-
ly and friends at their performance.
See you there!
On Tuesday, Oct. 10, Angie Kel-
ley from the local Recreation
Department and Sean Moore from
the local Chamber of Commerce
gave an enthusiastic and interac-
tive presentation on Halloween to
Central Elementary students, and
they talked about the upcoming
Kids Fall Festival on Saturday, Oct.
28, from 6 until 9 p.m. at the Wood-
works Park on Osceola Street. They
hope to light up Woodwarks Park
with many pumpkins. Please bring
your pumpkins (already carved) to
the event, along with wearing your
favorite costume. There will be a
costume contest and a pumpkin
carving contest again, please
make sure your pumpkin is already
carved before you bring it. There
will be other fun things to do at the
festival, including hayrides, and a
basketball toss. This event is open
to all students in the community,
and it will be a lot of fun!
Eastside Elementary
The Clewiston Fire Department
volunteers presented more than a
fire truck, with its hoses and sirens


to the students at Eastside Elemen-
tary School. Adrian Damms, Renee
Varnum, and Robbie Huntons, Jr.
demonstrated safety practices to all
the students in Eastside Media's
Center. They demonstrated to the
students how to make a plan to
evacuate their houses, how to use
important emergency numbers,
the proper way to check smoke
alarms, how often to check their
batteries in a smoke alarm, what
things not to put in a microwave,
and items needed in an emergency
kit. Adrian Damms familiarized the
students as to how firemen are
community helpers. He did this by
putting on his entire fireman uni-
form in two minutes and showing
them emergency equipment to
help put out fires or to help them in
emergency situations. This presen-
tation reinforced the Media Cen-
ter's curriculum, which taught stu-
dents safety procedures such as
using caution around heating
sources, not to play with matches
or lighters, and to stop, drop, and
roll if their clothes caught on fire.
Mrs. Duke and Eastside's staff
would like to thank the Clewiston
Fire Department for making Fire
Prevention Week meaningful for
our students.

Engineering firm looks at kids


FORT MYERS Southwest
Florida's oldest and best-known
engineering firm has announced
plans for an annual program
designed to help support the needs
of children and their teachers in
grades K-5, and it challenges other
local companies to do the same.
The innovative "Support Our
Schools" Program will be imple-
mented in Lee, Collier, Charlotte,
Hendry and Pasco counties where
Fort Myers-based Johnson Engi-
neering has offices.
With a $25,000 annual invest-
ment, "Support Our Schools" will
provide library and teaching books
for students, as well as needed sup-
plies and equipment for their
teachers. In November of each
year, the five school districts will
each select one K-5 school to
receive $5,000 worth of library
books, supplies or equipment of
their choosing. Schools will be
selected based upon need and cir-
cumstances.
Johnson Engineering will
donate $1000 to the school to be
spent at their next Scholastic Book
Fair, where the school's media spe-
cialist and teachers will be able to
select the books they need the
most for, their media center. In
addition, Johnson Engineering


"We are willing to do the work on administering
this program to support the needs of our schools.
It's a great way to involve our employees and to
make a difference that is important to all of us."
Steve Morrison,
Johnson Engineering President


employees will have the opportu-
nity to donate funds for additional
books for the school.
For equipment, computers,
supplies or special purchases that
will benefit the teachers and that
have not been in the school's
budget an additional $4,000 will
be provided to each of the five
selected elementary schools. "We
see a tremendous need in this
area," says Johnson Engineering
President Steve Morrison. "We
have done a lot of research and by
working with the school districts,
feel that this is the best place for
our company and our 300 employ-
ees to make an impact. It is our
hope that other businesses will join
us in this important endeavor."
Johnson Engineering has creat-
ed a logo, posters and an informa-
tion packet for any company that
would also like to participate in the


"Support Our Schools" Program.
"We are willing to do the work on
administering this program to sup-
port the needs of our schools. It's a
great way to involve our employees
and to make a difference that is
important to all of us," said Morri-
son.
The school districts in Lee, Col-
lier, Charlotte, Hendry and Pasco
Counties will officially announce
the elementary schools participat-
ing in the 2007 "Support Our
Schools" Program on Oct. 24, and
presentations will be made at each
of the schools in early November.
Information packets are avail-
able to companies that would like
to join the "Support Our Schools"
Program. Contact: Joel Halber-
stadt, Director of Marketing at
(239) 461-2418 or email jdh@john-

Learning about fire safety
Students at Eastside Elementary in Clewiston learned about the importance of fire safe-
ty and prevention on Oct. 11, when members of the Clewiston Fire Department visited
the school. The third graders were engaged throughout the session, having fun while
learning why they should always be careful around fire.


Safety is a concern for all schools


Statement by Education Com-
missionrer John L. Winn Regard-
ing School Safety:
"In light of the recent tragedies
at schools in Colorado, Wiscon-
sin and Pennsylvania, I would like
to express my heartfelt condo-
lences to the students, families
and staff of these schools. As inex-
plicable and horrific as these inci-
dents are, we recognize that
teachers, school officials, school
personnel, and law enforcement
work tirelessly in the hopes of pre-
venting such tragedies from hap-
pening and respond appropriately
when these senseless acts occur.
The safety and well-being of
our school communities is the
highest priority of the Florida
Department of Education, as well
as local school district officials.
We want schools to be inviting
places, not fortresses, but we all
must be diligent and vigilant
when it comes safeguarding our
students, faculty and school staff
well in advance of any situation.


Florida has long been a leader in
this regard and was one of the first
states to add School Resource
Officers in schools. We train
school district staff so they can
identify potential hazards or vul-
nerabilities in advance, as well as
plan for appropriate tactical
response strategies. We provide
training to school districts that
link aerial photographs and cam-
pus site floor plans for use by first-
responders in an emergency. For
more than 15 years, Florida law-
makers have appropriated more
than $70 million in funding annu-
ally for school safety. They have
put laws in place to protect stu-
dents from persons with criminal
backgrounds such'as the Jessica
Lunsford Act.
We work very closely with
school districts,so they will be pre-
pared in a time of crisis. Each
school district in Florida must
have an Emergency Management
Plan in place not only for acts of
violence but natural disasters.


Through training, we help the
school districts develop these
plans and provide consistent sup-
port to ensure no matter the inci-
dent, our schools are prepared.
These plans focus not only on
keeping everyone safe -- the
highest, priority but also
include strategies to inform par-
ents quickly and accurately about
the situation. An Emergency Man-
agement Plan is not a simple
checklist, but a critical tool that is
constantly updated and revised,
with the watchful eye of school
officials, law enforcement and
emergency responders.
Even given the efforts at state
and local levels, these three trag-
ic incidents still occurred. Unfor-
tunately, there is no profile of a
school in which such incidents
can't happen. However, the
Florida Department of Educa-
tion, with the assistance of state
and local officials, continues to
strive to protect those in Flori-
da's schools."

Red Ribbon Campaign sparks events


WASHINGTON, D.C. The
National Red Ribbon Campaign
will kick off its 21st anniversary
across the country. The campaign,
which is the nation's largest drug
prevention effort, began after drug
traffickers in Mexico kidnapped,
tortured and brutally murdered
Special Agent Enrique "Kiki"
Camarena in March 1985. Official-
ly, Red Ribbon Week will be cele-
brated nationally from Oct. 23-31;
however, several communities and
school districts hold events
throughout the month.
The Red Ribbon Campaign is
dedicated to helping to preserve
Special Agent Camarena's memo-
ry and further the cause for which
he gave his life, the fight against the
violence of drug crime and the mis-
ery of addiction. By gathering
together in special events and


wearing a Red Ribbon during the
last week in October, Americans
from all walks of life demonstrate
their opposition to drugs.
"This week, our nation
becomes one large community
unified in taking a stand against
drugs. Holding this community
together are millions of red rib-
bons, worn proudly from Boston
to Seattle, and from El Paso to
Detroit. Over the past 21 years, the
red ribbon has come to stand for
many things: for honor-in remem-
brance of the courage and convic-
tion of an American hero, DEA Spe-
cial Agent Kiki Camarena; for
understanding-of the realities of
drugs and the thousands of lives
they destroy; and for hope-for the
American children who wear
them, pledging to stay strong and
drug-free," said DEA Administrator


Karen P. Tandy.
Red Ribbon week started as a
local effort in Camarena's home-
town of Calexico, California when
Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-
CA) and Agent Camarena's high
school friend, Henry Lozano, creat-
ed Camarena Clubs to ensure fond
memories of Kiki. The National
Family Partnership (NFP) created a
national campaign of observance,
which starts the third week of
October each year, proclaimed by
the U.S. Congress and chaired by
then President and Mrs. Reagan.
Approximately 80 million people
participate in Red Ribbon events
everyyear.
For news about events sched-
uled in your areas, please check the
web at www.dea.gov or contact
your local DEA Office.

Burglaries solved by DNA results


By Eric Kopp
INI Florida
OKEECHOBEE Even
though the Oct. 11 arrest of a
Belle Glade man rivaled DNA
cases seen on the TV mega-hit
"CSI," it took considerably longer
than 60 minutes to solve the case.
In fact, it took over two years.
Nathaniel Lee Jackson, Jr., 22,
was finally arrested Oct. 11 by
Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office Deputy Sam Thomas on an
Okeechobee County warrant that
charged him with three counts of
burglary of a conveyance, three
counts of third-degree grand theft
and three misdemeanor counts
of criminal mischief $200 or less.
Jackson, who lists his occupa-


tion as a truck driver, was booked
into the Okeechobee County Jail
under a bond of $47,500.
"He proba-
bly thought he
got away scot-
free," said
OCSO Detec-
tive M.D.
Faulkner. "Out
of millions of
people, we got
lucky and got a
hit two years Nathaniel
later." Jacks
According
to Detective Faulkner, there were
a series of home and car burgla-
ries in the southwest section of
Okeechobee in 2004. In a March
5, 2004, car burglary a small


amount of blood was found in
the car and collected by use of
swabs.
OCSO Evidence Technician
Kathleen Watson submitted the
swabs to the Indian River Crime
Lab in Fort Pierce for forensic
biology examination. The swabs
gave positive chemical reactions
indicating the presence of
blood.
The detective went on to say a
DNA test was done, and the DNA
profile was entered into the Com-
bined DNA Index System
(CODIS) to search for a match on
a data base.
CODIS, said Detective Faulkn-
er, contains information such
as DNA on convicted crimi-
nals.


A search of the Florida con-
victed offender DNA database
resulted in a match with a con-
victed offender sample that corre-
sponded to Jackson's.
It was unclear on what
charges Jackson had been previ-
ously convicted.
Detective Faulkner said anoth-
er DNA test will now be done to
confirm the results from the origi-
nal DNA test.
The detective said as far as he
knew, this was the first such
OCSO case that had been solved
by DNA.
"We've never had one," he
said. "This data base of criminal
offenders is going to be a good
tool for law enforcement."

But we don't think it's our place to tell people what to think, or to try to

An open house
The proposed FPL Glades Power Park is intended to meet the growing demand for elec-
tricity starting in 2012-2013.


Floridians may vote by absentee ballot


TALLAHASSEE Floridians
have three ways to cast their bal-
lot for the November General
Election; absentee, early voting,
or at their polling place on Elec-
tion Day- Nov. 7.
To vote by absentee ballot, a
voter, member of their immedi-
ate family, or their legal guardian
may request an absentee ballot
from the Supervisor of Elections
in the county in which the voter is
registered. Absentee ballots may
be requested in person, by mail
or by telephone. One request
may cover all elections within a
calendar year. A request for an
absentee ballot for the General
Election to be mailed to a voter
must be received by the Supervi-


sor of Elections no later than 5
p.m. on Nov. 1.
A designee may pick up an
absentee ballot for a voter up to
four days prior to Election Day. A
designee may only pick up two
absentee ballots per election;
other than his or her own ballot or
ballots for members of his or her
immediate family. Designees must
have written authorization from
the voter, present picture identifi-
cation, and sign an affidavit.
Completed absentee ballots
must be delivered to the Supervi-
sor of Elections office by 7 p.m. on
the day of the election. Absentee
ballots can not be returned to a
polling place.
The person requesting an


absentee ballot must provide:
The name of the voter for
whom the ballot is requested;
The voter's address;
The voter's date of birth;
The requester's name;
The requester's address;
The requester's driver's
license number, if available;
The requester's relationship
to the voter and,
The requester's signature
(written request only).
During the November 2004
general election, 1.3 million
Floridians voted absentee. For
more information on voting by
absentee ballot, visit the Division
of Elections online at http://elec-
tion.dos.state.fl.us.

To encourage the students to
meet their new reading goal for
the second quarter, another deal

All students that met their first
reading goal are congratulated;
all students that didn't meet their

construction on the homes
should begin in a few weeks.
According to city officials, the
permits for the construction of
the first two buildings in the proj-
ect were recently approved, and
all indications point to the com-
pany moving forward in earnest
in the near future.


The first building is expected
to be finished by May of 2007.
Officials are anticipating the
project to fill a need for homes in
Clewiston.
"There is a great need for
multi-family homes here in
Clewiston," said Travis Reese,
with the city's building and zon-
ing department.

CHS Tigers trounce PJP Eagles


By Jeff Barwick
Clewiston raced to a lopsided
63-3 victory over Boca Raton's
Pope John Paul II in a district
contest at Cane Field on Friday
night.
Tiger quarterback Jared Corn-
bass led the way with two rush-
ing scores and a touchdown
pass. The Tigers kept their sea-
son record perfect at 7-0 (2-0 in
district) as they scored early and
often against an outclassed
opponent. The Eagles fell to 1-5
overall and 0-2 in district play and
were dominated all night long.
The Eagles won the opening
coin toss and deferred. If that
action was meant to send a sig-
nal to the Tigers, it failed. Clewis-
ton took the kickoff and began
their first drive from their 27.
Backup tailback Darris Hughes
got the starting job for the night
and quickly had runs of 8, 2, 46
and 7 yards. Those runs and two
Eagle penalties got the ball to the
one yard stripe and senior quar-
terback Jared Combass dove
through the line for the score.
Tiger kicker Will Davis, who
entered the game a perfect 19 of
19 on extra point kicks, convert-
ed his first of nine on the night.
The Tigers held the Eagles on
downs forcing a punt. Tiger
return specialist, John Melton
pulled in the ball, dodged the
early wall of tacklers and raced
45 yards for a touchdown. On
the Tiger kickoff, Davis hit the
ball to the Eagle one and Lance
Mitchell was hit at the 15 and
fumbled with Tiger Alton
Edmond falling on the ball. Two
snaps later, tailback Jamal
Hubert slashed for 8 yards and
the third Tiger score of the game.
After another failed Eagle series,
the Tigers began another drive
from their 44. On the fourth play,
Combass rolled left and found
tight end Delvin Hughes open
down the sidelines and connect-
ed with Hughes shedding tack-
lers as he completed the 40 yard
scoring play.
The second quarter opened
with the Tigers beginning anoth-
er drive. Six rushes by Hubert,
the longest 41 yards, and an
Eagle penalty gave Clewiston
their next score. Hubert got the
final yard off tackle with 9:49
showing for the half. The Eagles
then mounted their only serious
offense of the game when they
moved to the Tiger one yard line
before..being held and forced to
call on kicker Tom Dages for a 15
yard field goal. Clewiston came
roaring back with .a 9 play, 83
yard drive with Combass,scoring
on a keeper play to the corner
pylon with only 2 seconds
remaining in the half.
The Tigers scored three more
times in the second half. Full-
back David Pope barreled up the
middle on a quick opening trap
play and went untouched for a
29 yard score in the third period.
In the final period which was
played under a running clock,
tailback Collin Ricketts scored
on a 15 yard run and Alton
Edmonds, one of 5 tailbacks
used on the evening by Clewis-
ton, got the final score on a 2
yard dive play.
As bad as it sounded by the
score, it could have been worse
for the Eagles. They only suited
up 26 players for the game and a
couple of those were pulled
early due to injuries. John
Melton also had a 96 yard kickoff

return in the second period but it
was nullified by a questionable
holding call. Tiger Coach Larry
Antonacci began substituting
freely in the second period and
Tiger backups got a lot of valu-
able playing time.
The Tiger defense continued
to shine as they tackled hard all
night.
They held the Eagles to one
first half first down and only 5
rushing yards on 10 attempts.
The individual defensive statis-
tics were not high numbers
given the free substitutions but
defensive end Johnny Jones con-
tinued his solid performance
with 4 tackles and a fumble
recovery. Melton picked off an
Eagle pass and returned it 28
yards and safety Alex Rubio also
intercepted a pass for the Tigers.
Tiger Coach Larry Antonacci
said, "We played night and day
over last week. We were execut-
ing tonight and playing Tiger
football. We came out early and
set the tone and the defense was
just superb. We've got two
straight district games coming
up and we just need to stay
focused." The Tigers host Inlet
Grove from Riviera Beach this
Friday in another district game. A
win would make the Tigers at
least co-champions for the 2A-6
district.

'Lolly Bleu' not shy about voicing opinions


Edited by MaiyAnn Morris
People who remember the
Great Depression may recall that
to help get the country back to
work, the federal government
adopted an "activist posture" and
sponsored work projects from
dam building to tree planting to
help provide employment to all
manner of workers in the floun-
dering U.S. economy of the 1930s.
The Civilian Conservation
Corps planted trees where over
logging had stripped the forests
and built structures and roads in
public parks, like Highlands Ham-
mock State Park up in Sebring.
Another government sponsored
work project was the Federal
Writer's Project.
The Federal Writer's Project
employed over 10,000 people in
the course of its existence, among
them two writers that we know of
in the lake area, Mrs. Robert Eures
and Mrs. Texas Morgan. Both
wrote from the Venus area of
Glades County. Mrs. Morgan inter-
viewed a woman named Lolly
Bleu on November 28, 1938. Many
of the people interviewed for our
"Recollections" series had hard
times, too. But Lolly Bleu is identi-
fied as a Florida "squatter.". A
squatter is so called because they
neither own nor rent the land
upon which they live. The inter-
view begins:
"Lolly did not meet me at the
door when I knocked, but in
response to a low, gentle, "Come
in please," I entered the large front
room of the dwelling. She was sit-
ting in a log rocking chair of the
porch typed, holding upon her lap
a child whom she was carefully
feeding. She was neat and clean
and her hair .\as smor:olhl
brfisfied: Her dress v s'iold and
faded, but clean.


p ~a '1'


INI/Library of Congress/Marion Post Wolcott
This photo of Venus's main street was taken in January, 1939, just after Lolly Bleu was inter-
viewed. The photographer, Ms. Wollcott was employed by the Farm Service administration to
photograph rural areas.


"Lolly said that her family came
from Texas to Florida about 18
years ago. Both she and her hus-
band, "Pa" as she called him, were
born in Texas down on the Gulf
coast. (It says she is 50 years old
and her husband 67.) Lolly had her
opinions about life.
"When talking of city and town
life, Lolly remarked: We like this
live out here. The city is no place
for children. We can manage them
better out here.
"It isn't easy to get the children
to school from out here. They have
to walk about two miles to the
grade where they get the bus, but if
we lived in town,they might get in
all kinds of mischief and like as not
get run over by an auto. It isn't so
bad unless it rains. They don't
want to walk to the grade. They


don't mind the little cold we have
here. We do want our children to
be educated then they will be able
to do so much better for them-
selves.
"Do you know they teach
cooking' and sewin' in the school at
the village? My girls learned a lot
there. When they go to town to
high school this winter they can
take a business course and Arlie
can start for training' for a teacher.
School these days is so different
than when I went to school. We
just learned to read and write and
to figure a little and that seemed
about all. But I always did love to
read when I was a girl and my
mother was real well educated.
She taught school for year before
she married. I don't have time to
read much now but I guess I might


take time to read a newspaper if
we could get it out here.
"Our girls will stay with a friend
of theirs in town to go to school
She isn't going to charge them
board for she isn't real well and
they will help her with her work.
We'll keep them supplied with
vegetables and I aim to give the
lady two of my prettiest quilts.
"Seems like an education can
do so much for people now-a-
days. We hope all our children will
take one, but we just can't tell yet.
Some will go to school and some
won't and after a certain age is
ain't no use trying' to make them
go. I would like to be able to go to
school myself. It's kind of like goin'
to church. We don't belong, but
we woull like for the children to
go."


Pumpkins are packed with nutrition


Fall brings colorful pumpkins.
While the "pumpkin patch" in
South Florida may be simply a
decorated pumpkin display
instead of an actual garden, pick-
ing out a pumpkin or two is a tra-
dition in many families.
The word pumpkin comes
from the Greek word for "large
melon." The bright orange fruit is
native to the Americas. Native
Americans roasted pumpkins,
and ate the fruit and the seeds.
They sometimes weaved strips of
dried pumpkin rinds into mats.
Early American colonists cut
off the pumpkin top, removed the
seeds and filled pumpkins with
honey, butter, spices and milk and
baked them in the hot ashes of a
fire. The result was a kind of
sweet pumpkin pudding that
could be served using the pump-
kin shell as a bowl. This is
believed to be the origin of pump-
kin pie.
As indicated by the bright
orange color, pumpkin fruit is a
good source of beta-carotene, a
powerful anti-oxidant.
Many varieties of pumpkins
are grown in the United States,
ranging from miniature pump-
kins used as table decorations to
giant pumpkins weighing more
than 1,000 pounds. The most
commonly grown variety is the
Connecticut Field Pumpkin.
According to the University of
Illinois Extension Service, one
cup of cooked pumpkin contains:
Calories: 49;
Protein: 2 grams;
Carbohydrate: 12 grams;
Dietary Fiber: 3 grams;
Calcium: 37 mg;
Iron: 1.4 mg;
Magnesium: 22 mg;
Potassium: 564 mg;
Zinc: 1 mg;
Selenium: .50 mg;
Vitamin C: 12 mg;
Niacin: 1 mg;
Folate: 21 mcg;
Vitamin A: 2650 IU; and,
Vitamin E: 3 mg.
There are many ways to eat
pumpkin including pumpkin
pie, pumpkin soup and the Flori-
da favorite pumpkin bread.

Question: Dear Doc Savvy. My
dog Elsie has been diagnosed
with separation anxiety. My vet-
erinarian has told me about med-
ication for this condition, but
before I try his
recommen-
dation...I was
wondering if
you knew of
anything
which is a
more natural
alternative?
Doc, Dee in Doc
Belle Glade. Savvy
Answer:
Hey there Dee! There are a lot of
natural choices out there, and I
have looked into quite a few.
The only choice that seems
to work well is a product called
D.A.P. This product mimics the


blend until smooth. Set aside for
30 minutes to 1 hour. Heat a well
greased griddle or skillet, adding
about 1/2 cup of the batter when
hot. Fry as you would a pancake,
turning after bubbles appear
throughout. Sprinkle with sifted
confectioners's sugar.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise plan, consult
your doctor. This is especially
important if you are on any pre-
scription medications. Some
drugs interact badly with foods
that would otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy." Sources for this
article included The History Chan-
nel and the University of Illinois
Extension Service.

reminds dogs of what it was like

result, minimizes anxiety. What
is very cool about this product is
that it comes in several forms. It
is available in a spray, a plug in

Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
A woman was lamenting to
her diet club that she had
gained weight. She'd made her
family's favorite cake over the
weekend, she reported, and
they'd eaten half of it at dinner.
The next day, she said, she
kept staring at the other half,
until finally she cut a thin slice
for herself. One slice led to
another, and soon the whole
cake was gone. The woman
went on to tell how upset she
was with her lack of willpower,
and how she knew her hus-
band would be disappointed.
Everyone commiserated until
someone asked what her hus-
band said when he found out.
She smiled. "He never found
out. I made another cake and
ate half!"
I don't know about you, but I


can relate to this on a number
of different levels. How often
do we face temptations and fig-
ure a little bit
won't matter
too much.
Before we
know it, we "
have nibbled '
away at the .
whole cake
and then have
to do some-
thing to try to John
hide ourHic
indulgence. Hi
Sometimes that's hard to do.
Sometimes we just try to justify
our actions. After all, we all
know that there are no calories
in crumbs.
A number of years ago, a
pastor was asked to be part of a
court designed ethics program
for a number of politicians
caught in a scandal which


involved "stretching the truth"
among other things. To try to
get a clearer picture of what
was needed, this pastor made
appointments with some of the
leading politicians who were
not involved in the scandal.
One of the senior politicians
told the preacher that he was
glad the pastor was involved in
the program. We have too
much lying in our government.
We need to do something. I
hardly ever lie myself.
The pastor thought, Do you
hardly ever take bribes as well?
In our society today, there is
a tendency to compare our-
selves with others. What I'm
doing might not be all that
great, but it's not as bad as
what most people are doing.
Political ads overwhelmingly
bring out the real or imaginary
questionable actions of their
opponents, rather than their


own positive attributes. When
questioned about attack ads,
one response I've heard is,
Everyone is doing it, or Ours are
not as bad as theirs. It brings
back to mind the comment, I
hardly ever lie myself.
Slice by slice, bite by bite,
the cake disappears. What was
a small slice of little conse-
quence becomes a whole cake
of great consequence. Sin
sneaks up and invades our lives
big time. Before we know it, we
find ourselves taking actions to
cover up or justify what we've
done which leads to more sin
and more cover-up.
Like the Scriptures say,
When you sow the wind you
will reap the whirlwind. Those
who sow trouble, reap it. There
are always consequences for
our choices. Let's make sure
we strive to make the good
ones.

Distant vision brings a clear picture: God's view


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I've always liked trains. My
brothers and I were not too close
in age to share many things, but
one of the things we shared was
trains. I'd assemble the model.
railroad, my next-younger broth-
er would run the trains and the
youngest would blow the whis-
tle or operate an accessory.
Later, when I had a chance to:
travel, I'd go out of my way- to
take the train where possible. On
one trip, when I needed to get
from Geneva to Paris, I had a
chance to ride on one of the
high-speed trains and I took it.
This train went 380 kilometers-
per-hour; about 230 miles an hour.
That's one fast train! Every-


one had to have a seat; no stand-
ing in the aisles. We covered the
countryside and as I looked out
the windows, there went by a
series of blurs. "Telephone
poles" I thought even though I
couldn't really see them. They
were there, though, and they
carried the wires that powered
the train They had to be there, I
just couldn't see them clearly at
that speed. Looking off into the
distance, I'd see farms and pas-
tures, houses' and. cars that
seemed to poke along the high-
way, and telephone poles. It was
the distant view that let me see
clearly; things up close %were
blurs passing by and had no real
form. I went between two major
cities in about two and a half
hours that day; the train just
seemed to rock from one side to

the other and I was, impressed
with the smoothness ahd quiet-
ness of the ride.
There have been other times
when I've raced through things
with my vision on some distant
goal and missed the things that
were near to
me while in
the rush. In .-
our hurrying'to -
get some-
where, we
miss what is
going on
around u us,
what is nearby.
I never SamuelS.
thought much Thomas
about being a
parent until I became one; or
never thought much about what
ministry might be like and the
privilege it carried while I was
racing to graduate from semi-
nary. Parenting seemed tolbe a
blur of keeping the kids (me)
from doing what they wanted to
do, or having to eat what they
didn't like.
Seminary was a series of
courses and tests to pass; some-
how seeming to be a hindrance
on the road to ministry and not
tools to be used in a special
vocation. Later, the things that
passed by very quickly took on a
focus of their own. There was a
day when my daughter was sit-
ting next to me as we were.driv-
ing home and I looked down at
her. "Take your thumb out ol
your mouth" I told her.
She looked'back at me and
said, "Daddy, if you tell me to
take my thumb out of my mouth,
we're not going to be friends any
more." Instinctively, I told her
"Look, I'm the father and you're
the daughter, I'd like to be
friends but. don't have any
choice about it. Now, take your
thumb out of your mouth!" It
came out and I got a dirty look.


:She really didn't know about
having straight teeth, germs or
whatever had gotten under her
fingernail at nursery school that
morning. I had the distant view:
it was what gave the blur of the
motnent the context that made
the dirty look all worth it. The
distant view was a clear view; I
was entrusted by a special
responsibility too important to
be blackmailed by "friendship."
I've gone back and re-read some
of h textbooks I skimmed
through along the way to min-
istry. I've shared them after hav-
ing been away from them for
awhile. The distance gave me a
new view of their value; it was
there all of the time but I was too
close to see it.
The Christian faith is about a
man who came and lived a long
time ago. He was beset with
detractors and those who would
use Him to do something for
them; surrounded by listeners
who heard but were not always
ready to follow; ran when He
was in trouble. But He kept His
long view. He could see in the
distance and see clearly, even
when those around Him didn't
have His vision. It made it all
worth it for Him and, later those
who saw Him close-up were
changed. The time He was with
them passed quickly but it got
Him and us where we needed to
be. The prologue to John's
Gospel (Chapter l:lff) sums it
up this way: "The true light that
was coming into the world...He
came to His own home and His
own' people received Him not,
Sbut to all who received Him, all
who believed, He gave power to
become the children of
God...and the Word became
flesh....and we have beheld His
glory." Our glory too is in seeing
those.things clearly, clearly with
a distant vision. That's God's
vision.

Baptist Church welcomes pastor Area Church News in Brief


- A m.


CLEWISTON The congre-
gation at First Baptist Clewiston
recently celebrated the arrival of
their new pastor, Brian Hamrick
and his family to the area. Brian
is coming from a four-year pas-
torate in Northeastern Virginia,
his home state.
He holds an undergraduate
degree from James Madison
University and a master's degree
from Southwestern Seminary.
Brian and Katherine have
been married 7 years, and have
a two-year old son, Nathan.
Brian hails from Richmond, Va.
and his wife from Newport
News, Virginia.
"We're excited about being
in Clewiston," Pastor Hamrick
said. "We believe in the power
of God to transform lives and
we're excited about seeing that
happen at First Baptist."
He remarked that the people
here have welcomed them with
open arms.
The congregation extended a
call to Hamrick in late June. The
family arrived to the area in early
September. The new pastor has
said he wants to be rooted in the
area with a long-term pastorate.
His first sermon in the pulpit as
pastor was Sept. 17.
Pastor Hamrick summarized
his ministry aims by saying, "A
lot of people have misunder-
standings about God and the
Bible. A lot of people need love
and encouragement. A lot of
people are still in need of salva-
tion from sin. We want to be
personally, and as a church, a
solid presence here by helping
people spiritually by pointing
them to the goodness and grace
of God. We welcome people
from every walk of life to hear
the good news being preached."
What have they already
learned about living in South
Florida? "Push mowers aren't
worth much with the kind of
grass that grows down here.
That and the gecko population is
alive and well."
First Baptist Church meets for
worship on Sundays at 10:55
a.m. and 6 p.m., with a mid-
week service Wednesdays at
6:30 p.m. The church also has
more information online at
www.firstclewiston.com.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month









I .





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

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




Take a closer look at Glades General Hospital...
you'll be impressed by what you see.

Amendment requires anti-smoking campaign


Part 2 in a series

Editor's note: Florida voters
will be asked to decide on six
proposed amendments to the
Florida Constitution in Novem-
ber. Originally, eight amend-
ments were proposed. Amend-
ment #2 (which dealt with term
limits) was withdrawn and
Amendment #5 (which pro-
posed a nonpartisan board to
determine voting districts) was
ruled unconstitutional by the
Florida Supreme Court. This
series of articles on the pro-
posed amendments is designed
to help our readers better
understand them before going
to the polls.
The following information
was provided by VoteSmart
Florida. VoteSmartFlorida.org is
a non-profit, non-partisan organ-
ization composed of more than
60 diverse groups including
community organizations, trade
associations, chambers of com-
merce and others. VoteSmart-
Florida.org is an affiliate of the
Florida Chamber of Commerce
and is firmly committed to pro-
viding Florida voters unbiased,
non-partisan factual information
on proposed constitutional
amendments and the process by
which they get on the ballot.
Amendment 4
Official title: Protect People,
Especially Youth, From Addic-
tion, Disease and Other Health
Hazards of Using Tobacco.
Official Ballot Summary: To
protect people, especially youth,
from addiction, disease, and
other health hazards of using
tobacco, the Legislature shall
use some Tobacco Settlement
money annually for a compre-
hensive statewide tobacco edu-
cation and prevention program
using Centers for Disease Con-
trol best practices. It specifies
some program components,
emphasizing youth, requiring
one-third of total annual funding
for advertising. Annual funding
is 15 percent of 2005 Tobacco
Settlement payments to Florida,
adjusted annually for inflation.
Provides definitions. Effective
immediately.

Were paid signature gather-
ers used to place this on the bal-
lot? Yes, more than $1 million

PCI Consultants to pay profes-

Top Contributors: $1.5 Mil-
lion American Cancer Society,
Florida Division, $495,00 -
American Heart Association,
$175,000 American Lung Asso-
ciation of Florida.
Arguments:
For: In Florida, nearly 29,000
deaths are attributable to tobac-
co use annually, and the threat
of tobacco is greatest among
youth. Florida receives more
than $360 million annually from
the tobacco settlement, yet only
$1 million is used to educate
Florida's youth about the dan-
gers of tobacco use. Factoring in
inflation and increased cost of
advertising, $57 million appears
to be both reasonable and fiscal-
ly responsible.
Against: Everyone agrees kids
should not smoke. However, the
$57 million a year will be com-
ing out of our state's general rev-
enue budget, which means less
money for schools and roads.
Technically, this proposed
amendment could be achieved
through the legislature instead
of the Constitution.
What Your Vote Means
YES If approved by voters,
Amendment #4 would require
that 15 percent ($57 million) of
the 2005 tobacco settlement
payments to Florida would fund
a statewide tobacco education
and prevention program.
No If Amendment #4 is
not approved by voters, Florida
would continue to receive allo-
cations as set by the Legislature
and approved by the Governor.
Current allocations are set at 1
percent of the tobacco settle-
ment money.
Official financial impact state-
ment to appear on the ballot:
This amendment requires
state government to appropriate
approximately $57 million in
2007 for the comprehensive
Statewide Tobacco Education
and Prevention Program. There-
after, this amount will increase
annually with inflation. This
spending is expected to reduce
tobacco consumption. As a
result, some long-term savings
to state and local government
health and insurance programs
are probable, but indeterminate.
Also, minor revenue loss to state
government is probable, but
indeterminate.
Additional financial effects
based on the financial impact
estimating conference's
research & public workshops:
Education, prevention and
enforcement costs will increase.
The state will be required to
appropriate approximately $57
million from Tobacco Settle-
ment funds in 2007, which will
be adjusted annually for infla-
tion. Because the Tobacco Set-
tlement funds are currently fully
obligated, the requirement to
spend these dollars on the speci-
fied programs will result in
reductions to existing programs
or the replacement of those dol-
lars with $57 million of other
state funds.
Some long-term savings to
state and local government
health and insurance programs
is probable., The Comprehensive
Statewide Tobacco Education
and Prevention Program, is
expected to reduce tobacco con-
sumption. Because of this, state


and local governments that offer
health and insurance programs
will probably experience some
long-term savings. However, the
savings resulting from the pre-
vention program are indetermi-
nate. Many factors besides the
prevention program contribute
to the decline of tobacco use. In
addition, the number of per-
sons, particularly youth, who
will stop using tobacco, for how
long they will stop, or who will
never use tobacco is unknown.
Minor loss of revenue to the
state is probable, but is indeter-
minate. Revenue to the state
from the Tobacco Settlement
payments and from the Cigarette
and Other Tobacco Products
Taxes are dependent in part on
tobacco sales. The statewide
campaign proposed by the con-
stitutional amendment is
expected to reduce consump-
tion by some unknown amount.
Many other factors may also
contribute to the decline of
tobacco use, including affected
opinions about tobacco compa-
nies following the multi-state
settlements, increasing cost of
cigarettes, increasing tax rates
on tobacco products, and the
implementation of smoking reg-
ulations in public places. Conse-
quently, minor loss of revenue is
probable, but the amount attrib-
utable to the prevention pro-
gram cannot be determined.
Amendment 6
Official Title: Increased
Homestead Exemption
Official ballot summary:
Proposing amendment of the
State Constitution to increase
the maximum additional home-
stead exemption for low-income
seniors from $25,000 to $50,000
and to schedule the amendment
to take effect Jan. 1,2007.
Amendment Type: Legisla-
tive/Joint Resolution, this
amendment was placed on the
ballot by the Florida Legislature
during the 2006 Legislative Ses-
sion. It was required to pass
both the Senate and House by a
60 percent vote to be eligible for
the ballot.
Sponsor: Florida Legislature,
(2006 Session), Rep. Carlos
Lopez-Cantera (R-Miami)
Known proponents:
Unknown
Known opponents:

Unknown
Arguments:
For: Low-income seniors*
are vulnerable to sudden
increases in property tax assess-
ments, because many live on
fixed incomes and simply can't
keep pace with increasing prop-
erty taxes. This amendment will
authorize the Legislature to
allow local government to ease
tax burdens on those who are
most affected by higher property
taxes.
Against: Property taxes gen-
erate a major source of revenue
for local government. Reducing
. property taxes could financially
devastate counties resulting in
massive tax increases to cover
revenue needs for schools and
other local priorities. Therefore,
reducing property the tax bur-
den on owners could result in a
shift of tax burdens from the
homestead property owner to
other taxpayers.
What Your Vote Means
Yes: If approved by voters,
Amendment #6 would author-
ize the Legislature to allow
counties to increase the maxi-
mum additional homestead
exemption for low-income sen-
iors* from $25,000 to $50,000
effective Jan. 1, 2007. Local
counties have an existing option
of adding an additional $25,000,
therefore, a low-income senior
could receive an exemption
from property taxes as high as


- -IT


$75,000.
*Low-income seniors are
defined as those 65 years old or
above with a household income
that does not exceed $20,000.
No: If Amendment #6 is not
approved by voters, homestead
exemptions would remain as
currently listed in the Constitu-
tion:
$25,000 homestead exemp-
tion to all owners of "home-
stead" properties
Allows local governments
the option of offering an addi-
tional exemption to low-income
seniors of up to $25,000 (estab-
lished in 1982). Low-income
seniors are defined as those 65
years old or above with a house-
hold income that does not
exceed $20,000
Financial impact: There is not
a direct financial impact on state
government. If all counties were
to fully implement the increased
exemption and millage rates
remain the same, it could have
an impact of negative $36 mil-
lion to local revenues.
Note: The Financial Impact
Estimating Conference is not
required to adopt and prepare
official financial impact state-
ments to accompany proposed
constitutional amendments
which are placed on the ballot
by the Florida Legislature.
