County EMS faces allegations


Former employee
cites low number of
active paramedics

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON A former
employee of the Hendry County
EMS and Fire Rescue Department
claims residents are not getting the
services they require from the
county because the department is


short-staffed.
Paris Fajardo, who until this
month was a paramedic for the
county, alleges that the depart-
ment is not meeting its staffing
requirements, putting residents in
danger of not getting proper med-
ical attention during emergencies.
County representatives, mean-
while, defend themselves from the
accusations, adding that an inci-
dent earlier this month forced sev-
eral of its employees to resign or
be terminated. The department
said it is working to get a full staff


back on the road.
According to Public Safety
Director Randy Bengston, several
of his employees were caught
lying, which prompted the man-
power shortage. Mr. Bengston
admitted the department was
struggling for a while.
"There are not enough para-
medics," said Mr. Bengston earlier
this week by telephone. While
normally a fully staffed agency
would have 15 paramedics provid-
ing coverage in the Clewiston area,
Mr. Bengston said he now has 12.

"Santa, I've been a really good girl this year" said this little young girl while she sat in
Santa's lap and told him what she wanted for Christmas this year. The event happened
was at the Clewiston Library last Monday, Dec. ..... ...1


Santa arrived at the Clewiston Library to read to the local children in the community.
Santa also gave out Christmas treats and gift bags to all the children that attend.


"Wow this is neat," said this
young boy as he walks with
some treats and a goody
bag given to him by Santa.

LABELLE Hendry County
was the focus of attention by its
legislators at the annual Legisla-
tive Delegation session Dec. 12 at
LaBelle City Hall. Florida Senator
Larcenia Bullard of District 39,
Representative Denise Grimsley
of District 77 and Rep. Dave
Aaronberg of District 27 faced the
room full of locals seeking fund-
ing from Tallahassee. US Con-
Sgressman-elect Tim Mahoney
came by as well in an effort to


augment to his understanding of
local issues and needs.
The ongoing struggle of many
Montura residents to go from its
current Central County election
process of one vote per acre to
one-man-one-vote was taken up
after the initial session. The dele-
gation heard supporting informa-
tion from both sides of the issue.
Residents have not been able
to pass a local referendum until
this past summer, when a refer-
endum was approved by a major-

"We are currently running
short-staffed," said the director.
Mr. Fajardo, though, claims that
there are only nine paramedics on
the road, a dangerously low num-
ber. Even so, Mr. Bengston said the
department is in the process of hir-
ing three more paramedics, one is
scheduled to start by the end of the
year.
Two more paramedics lost
their job after the incident earlier
this month, according to Mr. Fajar-
do. Mr. Fajardo was given the
option to resign or be terminated


after he and several other para-
medics went on a cruise together.
Because they had failed to
properly notify their supervisors,
and may have disrupted services
that day, those unwilling to name
who went on the cruise were rep-
rimanded or fired, according to Mr.
Fajardo.
He accused his supervisors of
wrongfully asking him to resign.

Machinery he was
using struck a live
electrical current

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Officers
found the body of a Clewiston
man who died while performing
electrical work one week before
Christmas.
Mike Sandelli, 35, was pro-
nounced dead when he arrived at
the hospital after he was found.
S While specific details on the
accident are not available, inves-
tigators believe the man was
shocked by the electrical current
running on the line on which he
was working.
The Clewiston Police Depart-
ment received the call at shortly
before noon on Dec. 16 from an
electrician who received a service
call on a power outage at the site,


the 600 Block of EastAlverdez.
While waiting for his assistant
to arrive, and while checking for
repairs, the city electrician found
Sandelli's body lying face down
on the ground near a heavy
machine, according to a police
report of the incident.
It appeared that the machine
had struck a live, high-powered
electrical line.
The owner of the property,
Antonio Perez, identified the vic-
tim as Sandelli. According to Mr.
Perez, the victim had been work-
ing with the machinerywhen the
accident happened.
The responding officer
requested assistance from a
detective to the scene.
The victim was taken to
Hendry Regional, where a detec-
tive confirmed that Mr. Sandelli
apparently had been electrocut-
ed by the high voltage.

Family of teen


suspended seek


resolution


NAACP represents
student

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON A grand-
mother's call alerted the local
NAACP chapter to what the
organization is now calling a vio-
lation of a child's civil rights.
The boy, a popular football
player for the Clewiston High
School Tigers, was punished
for reportedly being under the
influence of alcohol at a
school function.
His family now wants the


school to clear hisname.
His grandmother claims that
he could have been mistaken for
being drunk after taking an over-
the-counter cold remedy, Nyquil,
to treat an illness. He was sus-
pended after the incident, and
kicked off the football team.
The suspension created some
talk in the town, with some resi-
dents wondering whether the
school was too harsh in its pun-
ishment of the student.
According to Linda Johnson,
area director of the NAACP, she
first learned of the situation after
a telephone call from the stu-

and Nana went home to be with
Jesus her Lord and Savior on
Sunday, Dec. 10, 2006. On that
day, she was reunited with
David, the love of her life for the
past 53 years. We imagine their
voices joined together in praises
to their Heavenly Father. Dee
exercised her gift of mercy and
hospitality putting others before
herself. Her words of encourage-
ment were a blessing to many.
She provided a compassionate
ear for people's concerns and a
shoulder to cry on. Born in 1933
in Paducah, Ky. to the late Nobel
and Lois Gillahan, Dee grew up
in Palmdale and Saint Cloud,
and was a long-time Florida resi-
dent. A life-long learner, Dee
majored in accounting at Florida
State University. An accounting
job took her to Clewiston, where
she met David Twiddy Sr. It was
love at first sight. From there,
she followed David to the "ends
of the earth", including Helena,
Mont., where she loved the cool
air and the mountains. In Hele-
na, Dee raised two children and
worked as a respiratory thera-
pist. She and David were led by
the Lord to minister to young
people. They helped start the
Young Life Club in Helena, Mont.


In Winter Park, Dee was devoted
to service at First Baptist where
she enjoyed working in the nurs-
ery, library, and in the kitchen
serving up desserts with smiles
and love. We are looking for-
ward to a reunion in heaven -
Mom get a BIG chocolate sheet
cake ready! Dee dearly loved and
will be greatly missed by family
and friends including: daughter
Tina von Guerard (Paul) of
Grand Junction, Colo.; son
David (Kimberly) Twiddy Jr. of
Bartow; brothers in-law and sis-
ters in-law, Richard and Ellen
Twiddy of Sanford, and Charles

Guerard, David Alien Twiddy III,
and great-granddaughter Leila
Kohlman. Graveside services
were held on Friday Dec. 15, at
the cemetery in Ortona. A
memorial service was held on
Saturday, Dec. 16, at First Baptist
Church of Winter Park. In lieu of
flowers, the family requests that
gifts in Dee's memory be sent to

ety P.O. Box 4072 Pittsfield,

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

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

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

How are we doing?

Th a


Family will have Christmas this year


After a string of
troubles, the family
will receive help

By (deybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
It been a very difficult year for
a Belle Glade family after a fami-
ly's sole provider suffered two
strokes and was hospitalized.
The family had to worry
S about the basic necessities, with
: little regard to what Christmas
would look like this year.
Fortunately, an agency with a
kind heart has stepped up to
help the family for the holidays.
The trouble began when
Ruben Resendez suffered a


Crime

Stoppers

The Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office is seeking assistance
'from the public in locating the fol-
lowing "wanted fugitive."
Carlton Moore, age 31, is a
black male with black hair with
brown eyes.
He is 6 feet, 3
inches tall and
,weighs
,approximately
175 pounds.
'He has a tattoo
on his chest
and scars on
his right finger
'and hand. He is
also known as Carlton
Reginald Moore
'Moore and his
;last known address was Oak

Moore is wanted on felony

*er; fleeing or attempting to elude
marked patrol car.
Anyone with information on
the whereabouts of Moore, is
asked to contact the Palm Beach

(800) 458-TIPS (8477) or online at
www.crimestopperspbc.com.


stroke at his job. On his way to
the hospital, the father of seven
suffered another one.
The situation looked grim for
the family. Mr. Resendez was in a
coma for two weeks before
being transferred to Glades Gen-
eral Hospital from a hospital on
the coast.
On a visit to see her husband,
Ms. Resendez was mugged.
Her assaulters made away
with her rent money.
Ana Rivera, Housing Special-
ist/Hispanic Outreach Specialist
with Hendry-Glades Behavioral
Health Center learned about the
family's situation and offered to
help.
The family was a perfect fit
for the program's toys for tots
event, she said. For the event, a


business can elect to sponsor a
family and buy Christmas gifts
for the holidays.
Why should a family that has
been under so much worry have
to cancel Christmas?
"This is my third year partici-
pating in the toys for tots," said
Ms. Rivera. "Just the fact that I
work for Hispanic Outreach
makes me feel great, and know-
ing that I am doing something
for the community makes me
feel even better," she added
After a local business was
unable to sponsor the family, Ms.
Rivera continued looking for
somebody who would.
She remembered Marsha
Carter, with Marsha's Helping
Hands, an organization out of
LaBelle. The non-profit agency


itself survives on donations and
contributions from the commu-
nity, so it wasn't a surprise when
Ms. Carter offered to sponsor the
family.
Because of that generosity,
the family will now have a
Christmas. The agency will pro-
vide them with food, clothing
and toys for all seven children.
For Ms. Rivera, that means a
lot.
"It is unfortunate that this
family is going through this situ-
ation, I knew I had to do some-
thing for the children, and I did,
just in time for holidays," said
Ms. Rivera.

helped underscore the need in
Central Florida to develop alter-
native water supplies. It also
called for improved science to
better understand how the Flori-
dan aquifer interacts with sur-
face-water environments such
as wetland systems, lakes and
rivers. Once we understood the
connection between ground and
surface water, we could deter-
mine how much water can be
pumped to the ground while still
avoiding environmental harm.
Using the science developed
since 2001, this five-year update
of the Kissimmee Basin Water
Supply Plan calls on utilities,

develop alternative water supply
projects. In fact to ensure that a

WEST PALM BEACH Th(
governing board of the Souti
Florida Water Management Dis
trict (SFWMD) has authorized th<
temporary installation of electric<
forward pumps to draw wate
from Lake Okeechobee in the
event of prolonged drought coridi
tions this dry season.
Should they be required, the
pumps will be installed by Luca
Marine Construction, LLC under
S:contract approved by the SFWMT
governing board last week. The
contractor will be mobilize<
quickly to upgrade and prepare
the installation sites by no late
:than March 1, 2007, and wil
'remain on standby for the remain
-der of the 36-month contract
should it be necessary to make the
:installations operational, accord

Chair Kevin McCarty.
District water managers con-
currently reported that they will
take delivery of 14 axial-flow, elec-
tric forward pump assemblies, as
well as one spare pump, to draw
water from Lake Okeechobee in
the event the lake's water level
drops below 10.2 ft. NGVD, the
level at which gravity will no
longer direct the flow of water
through existing structures. The
SFWMD received the first four of
these pumps last week and has
staged them at the District's West
Palm Beach field station.
The temporary, submerged
pumps are part of a proactive
water shortage emergency plan
to be implemented in the event
of prolonged drought conditions,
such-as might result from this
year's unusually low rainfall. The


DID YOU BUY


pumps would be able to lift
water from the lake into existing
District conveyance canals so
that it can be utilized for emer-
gency water supply. Each pump
is capable of moving 100 cubic
feet of water per second.
"The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is prepared for
the possibility of a more severe
water shortage this dry season,
and we are sensitive to a drought's
potential impact to local
economies," .said Carol Ann
Wehle, executive director at the
SFWMD. "We are committed to
working aggressively to meet the
water demands of all lake area
users, as well as the needs of
regions to the south, including the
Everglades National Park and
Florida's East Coast."'
The three proposed sites for


I-


installation of the pumps are at
existing control structures S-351,
S-352 and S-354, all located in
Palm Beach County along the
southtfn rim of Lake Okee-
chobee. These structures cur-
rently provide gravity discharge
of water from the lake to the
Hillsboro/North New River, Palm
Beach and Miami Canals respec-
tively.
In addition, the SFWMD is
aggressively exploring options
for providing water to users
north of the lake, as they also are
affected by low lake levels. The
pumps also will be used in
accordance with the needs of
the lake, including navigation,
sustaining the District's
stormwater treatment areas, fire
fighting, and the management of
coastal saltwater intrusion.

Health Department offers key tips


LABELLE As local resi-
dents get ready for the holiday
season, Hendry and Glades
County Health Department
Director Neftali Fernandez, M.D.,
emphasizes the importance of
safely preparing and storing food
to prevent possible foodborne
illnesses.
"As family feasts are being
prepared for Christmas, local
residents and visitors should
practice proper food hygiene,"
said Dr. Fernandez. "Residents
should wash their hands and
counter tops thoroughly before
and after preparing foods to help
eliminate bacteria. Foods should


be cooked at the appropriate
temperature and leftovers
should be stored in a refrigerat-
ed area."
Dr. Fernandez also suggests
that food preparers adhere to
safety tips in order to prevent
possible foodborne illnesses.
Factors that can contribute to
foodborne illnesses include:
improper storage of food
(inadequate refrigeration tem-
perature or hot holding tempera-
ture)
improper washing of hands
and fingernails
improperly cooling foods
cross contamination (e.g.,


from uncooked meat to salad
ingredients)
improperly cleaned and san-
itized eating and cooking uten-
sils, work areas and equipment
contamination of food,
utensils, and equipment from
flies, roaches and other pests.
People who have liver disease
or diabetes, who have had gas-
tric surgery or who are immune-
compromised should avoid eat-
ing raw oysters or other raw
animal protein during the holi-
days. Oysters that are thoroughly
cooked or have been post-har-
vest treated can be consumed by
people with the above underly-


ing physical conditions to mini-
mize the risk of infection from
Vibrio vulnificus.
The Hendry/Glades County
Health Department promotes and
protects the health and safety of
our two counties through the deliv-
ery of quality health services and
the promotion of health care stan-
dards. For additional information
please contact us at any of our
three sites or via our e-mail address

sonal time," said Mr Fajardo in a
letter to the county. "I feel that I was
discriminated against even after I
was forced to resign from my posi-.
tion as paramedic."
According to Mr. Fajardo, his
former supervisors called the
Montura Fire Department to make
sure that, as an area served by the
county, Mr. Fajardo would not
work in the that area.
He blames management for the
department's troubles even before

and an energy drink called Monster
Energy Drink before he went to the
homecoming dance Nov. 4.
The student denies drinking any
alcohol beverages.
The NAACP attended the
Hendry County School Board
Meeting on Dec. 12 to ask the
board-to clear the student's name.


the incident and said it had been
operating with too few paramedics
forweeks.
"We are in need of paramedics,
but they're making a big deal out of
little issues that had nothing to do
with our job," Mr. Fajardo said.
Traditionally, with lower pay
and benefits, sometimes outdated
facilities and equipment and long
hours, finding suitable applicants in
rural areas becomes harder. With
much larger cities and counties
located so closely, many decide to
take up job offers elsewhere.
Even after instituting a raise
within the department, the county
could rot find applicants for the


Without concrete proof of the
boy's guilt, it isn't fair that he would
have been punished, NAACP rep-
resentatives said.
"There are questions that aren't
answered, and that is what we are
seeking," Ms. Johnson said.
"This will end this child's
future," Ms. Johnson continued.
"Where is the evidence, the


empty slots.
Mr..Fajardo is now asking for an
apology from the county and to
have his position reinstated at the
department.
Mr. Bengston, though, said his
decision to let Mr. Fajardo go could
have been avoided had Mr. Fajardo
told the truth instead of trying to
cover up what he did.
"This former employee was ter-
minated because of misconduct,"
Mr. Bengston said.
"You can't blame management
for an employee's poor judgment
or misconduct.
Because he refused to cooper-
ate when asked about the incident,

influence of alcohol," said Ms.
Johnson. "We want written evi-
dence," she added.
The board, meanwhile, has
agreed to review the case and
return at a future meeting with a
final decision.

Mr. Fajardo proved to be unreli-
able," according to Mr. Bengston.
"Mr. Fajardo lied and that will
not be tolerated here," continued
Mr. Bengston. "He had the oppor-
tunity to maintain his job; all he had
to do was tell the truth, but he
stood by his lie until the last
minute."
It underscores a more impor-
tant point, said Mr. Bengston.
"If you would lie about some-
thing so stupid, what would make
you think he won't lie about patient
care," Mr. Bengnton said.

ity voters. Montura residents'
spokesman Miguel Viciedo pre-
sented the residents' case.
Central County board attorney
Angela Hill argued that, due to the
success of the August referendum,
the board -already is required to
change one board position to be
elected by the voters in February.
She said additional changes to
the procedure at this point would
unnecessarily encumber, the
landowners who currently pay the
taxes in the district.
Supervisor of Elections Lucretia
Strickland said she believes that the
entire'five-member board should

be chosen by one method either
continue the current one-vote-per-
acre system or go fully to the popu-
larvote.
Saying that they currently have


no bill before them but need to
meet again to decide how to handle
the situation, Sen. Aaronberg made
the motion to gather all current
information and decide later on
whether or not a bill is necessary.
Sen. Bullard seconded the motion,
which passed unanimously.
Assistant Administrator Judi
Kennington-Korf presented
Hendry County's list of requested
appropriations. Number one on
the list is $350,000 for small county
courthouse improvements to
accommodate additional court-
room space and to enhance securi-
ty. Second is $500,000 for stormwa-
ter implementation for Airglades
Industrial Park, followed by $1.6
million for Stormwater Improve-
ments for Airport-Sears and
$800,000 for Stormwater Improve-
ments for Mid-County; $500,000 for
Stormwater Improvements for
Four Corners and $250,000 for a
Stormwater Master Plan Phase II.


Also on the list are $300,000 for
Fort Denaud Bridge improvements,
$250,000 for Lake Okeechobee
National Pollution Discharge Elimi-
nation System compliance,
$900,000 for Airglades Airport Utili-
ty System Waste Water Treatment
Plant and $200,000 for improve-
ments to the Hendry County Fair-
grounds.
Hendry County is also hoping to
receive grants of almost $1.9 million
for a new Emergency Operations
Center, $200,000 for Clewiston East
Park and $6.7 million for the 2005
Disaster Recovery Initiative.
SIn addition; the county is asking
the state legislature to increase
SHIP funding so the county can
provide more affordable housing
and is also asking the legislature to
develop innovative programs to
encourage private sector develop-
ment of workforce housing.
Other groups seeking Legisla-
tive consideration:included Florida


Gulf Coast University, South Florida
Water Management District,
Healthy Start Coalition, Hope Hos-
pice, East County Water Control
District and Janice Groves of the
Economic Development Council.
Dr. Stanley Andrews, former Direc-
tor of Sponsored Research at. Flori-
da Atlantic University, called atten-
tion to energy issues.

Christmas 2006 a symbol that is also the real gift


By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Nothing changes a household
like the coming of a baby. Life is
turned upside down and things
are never the same again. The
sports car gives way to the van;
new furniture arrives and extra
space is found; neat living rooms
are now in disarray with diaper
bags, cradles and carriers;
kitchens are now filled with baby
bottles and jars of baby food; pets
are no longer the center of atten-
tion that they once were; hours
that seemed filled before now
have a new focus of constant
attention to every detail, every
movement, every sound. The
new center of attention brings
with him or her, a kind of joy that
has been unknown; a new "glad
tiding" and a new revelation to
share with everyone imaginable.
The event is certainly a sacred
one in each household no matter
how many times it is repeated or
how many times it turns life


upside down once more.
Hardships may come, but
they take a back seat when com-
pared to the joy that comes with
the newborn. Details are to be
shared and .....
everyone wel-
comes the
newcomer -
and shares the '" ''""
joy known by
the new par-
ents. It is by
this means
that the Savior
of the world Samuel S.
chose to enter Thomas
our lives. His
parents are forced to makeshift
accommodations for the blessed
event; a stable will have to do
because there is no room at the
inn. The trip takes the couple
away from family and friends
and was a hurried one, required
by an alien government and their
census, so loved ones will have
to await being told. The stable
will be cold in the Mideast in
December but there will be ani-


mals that will give off warmth.
There will be visiting strangers
who will realize the sacredness
of the birth and the very special
sacredness of the infant they
have come to adore. Like those
before and ever since, they will
leave gifts as a sign of their recog-
nition of this special occasion.
The parents will see their son
born into a dangerous world;
they will have to flee to Egypt to
protect Him from a tyrant king. It
is of no consequence; there is a
new focus in their lives and they
will gladly do whatever is needed
to protect the infant.
God chose this means to
come into our world at Christ-
mas. He has shared with us what
it means to be human; we share
with Him the joy of sending a
Son. As our children turn our
lives upside down when they
come and give us a new sense of
joy that was not known before;
the coming of Jesus has also
turned our lives upside down,
and given a sense of joy never
known before or since. The


world will not be rid of dangers
or fear; the baby Jesus came into
a scary and dangerous world,
too. Through the love He radiat-
ed, though, both human and
divine, He came to overcome it
from the moment of His birth. In
spite of it all, as our children can
bring a sense of joy and peace, so
the coming of the Savior causes
the angels and all who hear them
to proclaim "Peace on Earth,
Good Will To Men." With the
birth of each child comes a new
hope for the world; with the birth
of the Lord, that hope is kindled
forever in the hearts of those
who have Him and know Him.
The birth of the Savior in human
form, in human ways, with all of
the joys and hopes that births
bring into families, is truly a won-
derful symbol for "the birth" that
is celebrated at Christmas each
year. The world was turned
upside down by this birth and
"the people that have walked in
darkness have seen a great light
(Isaiah 9:2, Matthew 4:16)." We
have that light to guide us


The true story of a Christmas miracle


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
I firmly believe that God contin-
ues to work in many wonderful
and mysterious ways in our lives
today. Some
may call them
coincidences,
but my faith
sees God's
Sand in many
of these coinci-
dences, which I.
call, 'Godsi-
dences.' Fol-
lowing is one John
such Christmas Hicks
Godsidence
story that touched my heart. I hope
it touches yours as well.
The year was 1948. Just two
days before Christmas, a storm
swept through the area, dumping
more rain than the old roof of the
church could stand. A leak devel-
oped and the plaster just behind
the altar soaked up the water as if it
were a sponge and then crumbled,
leaving a gaping hole in the wall.
Dejected, the pastor looked at


the hole in the wall. There was
obviously no chance to repair the
damage before Christmas. Nearly
three months of hard work had
been washed away.
It was a depressed minister and
his wife who attended a benefit
auction for the church youth group
that afternoon. One of the items
put up for bid was an old gold and
ivory colored lace tablecloth.
Seized with inspiration, the pastor
was high bidder at $6.50. His idea
was to hang the cloth behind the
altar to cover the hole in the wall.
On the day before Christmas,
the wind picked up and the tem-
perature dropped. As the pastor
unlocked the church doors, he
noticed a woman standing at the
nearby bus stop. He knew the bus
wouldn't be there for at least half
an hour, so he invited her in to keep
warm. She had been in the area to
interview for a job as governess,
but her English wasn't good and
she had been turned down for the
job.
Sitting in the back of the church,'
the woman looked up and saw the
cloth the pastor was hanging
behind the altar. Rushing forward,


she exclaimed, "It's mine! It's my
banquet cloth!" Excitedly, she told
the surprised minister its history.
and even showed him her initials
embroidered in one corner. She
and her husband had lived in Vien-
na, and had escaped the Nazis
before the Second World War.
They decided to flee to Switzer-
land. She left first, and later heard
that he had died in a concentration
camp..
Touched by her story, the minis-
ter insisted she take the cloth. She
thought about it a moment and
said to leave it hanging. She didn't
need it any longer.
After the Christmas Eve service,
one older gentleman lingered,
admiring the tablecloth. As he left
he said: "It's strange. Many years
ago my wife, God rest her soul, and
I owned such a tablecloth. But we
lived in Vienna then."
The night air was freezing, but
the goose bumps raised on the
pastor's skin weren't caused by the
weather. As calmly as he could, he
told the man about the woman
who had been in church that
morning. With hopeful tears
streaming down his cheeks, the


man asked how he might find her.
Remembering the name of the
family who had interviewed the
woman, the pastor telephoned the
family and learned the woman's
name and address. In the pastor's
old car he and the man drove to
her home on the other side of
town. Together they knocked on
her apartment door. When she
opened the door, the pastor wit-
nessed the tearful, joyful, and excit-
ed reunion of husband and wife.
Separated for more than a decade,
believing each other dead, they
were reunited.
Some people would call it an
extremely lucky chance happen-
ing, but I believe God's hand was in
the rain, the roof leaking, the auc-
tion, the tablecloth at the auction,
the woman looking for a job and
standing on that corner at just the
right time, and with the man mak-
ing a comment to the minister after
seeing the tablecloth. I also believe
God's hand is in our lives today if
we have eyes to see and hearts to
embrace. That's what the miracle
of Christmas is all about!


always, and it began with the
miracle that we celebrate at
Christmas; a miracle God gives
us in our human families and has
chosen as the sign of the great
miracle of the birth of His Son-


Christmas. May you all have a
happy and joyous Christmas, a
blessed season, and may the
light shine in all of our hearts as
we welcome once more the birth
of that special child.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
THE LAKEPORT WATER ASSOCIATION WATER TREATMENT
SYSTEM HAS A LEVEL OF TOTAL TRIHALOMETHANES
WHICH EXCEEDS STANDARDS
SITUATION
The Deparment of Environmental Protection requires dlsinfectioan of drinking water
to Inactivate possible pathogens, because the health benefits of dlsinfection far out-
weigh its risks. However, when used in the treatment of drinking water, some disin-
tactants combine wih organic and Inorganic maoer present In the water to form
chemicals called disinfection byproducts (DBP's). A number of DBP's such as Total
Trihalomethanes (TTHM's) and Haloacetic Acds (HAAS's) may be a health concern
at certain levels of exposure.
The laboratory analysis results for the TTHM sample collected in January 2006, May
2006. July 2006, and November 2006, nor indicate a running annual average TTHM
concentration of 92.18 micrograms per liter (ug/L). Therefore, The Department has
determined that this water system has generated a Maximum Contaminant Level
(MCL) violation for TTHM's, since Table 3 of Rule 62-550, Florida Administrative
Code (F.A.C.), Identitfies the MCL for TTHM's as 80 (ug/LO/
HEALTH BENEFITS
Some people who drink water containing Trihalomethanes In excess of the Maxi-
mum Contaminant Level (MCL) over many years may experience problems with
their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased chance
of getting cancer.
WHAT SHOULD CUSTOMER DO?
This is not an immediate risk, however, until the problem is corrected, any custom-
ers who are concerned about their exposure to TTHM's may wish to use alternative
sources of water for ingestion, such as commercial bottled water, or water treated
by an appropriate home water treatment device. Appropriate home water treatment
devices are those certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) for reducing
TTHM's in drinking water.
WHAT IS BEING DONE?
The problem will be corrected when the Seminole Tribe builds new water treatment
plant on the Brighton Reservation. Construction is expected to be completed in late
2007.
For more information, please contact Jeff Ussery at (863) 946-1300, or write to:
Lakeport Water Association, Inc., 10055 Red Barn Road, Moore Haven, FL 33471.
You may also contact the Dept. of Environmental Protection Potable Water Compli-
ance/Enforcement Section at (239) 332-6975. Please share this information with all
the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received
this notice directly (for example those in apartments, nursing homes, schools and
businesses).

Fisheating Creek Board meets


By Nancy Dale
On Friday, Dec. 1, Fisheat-
ing Settlement Agreement
Advisory Board and the public
attending, listened to reports
on the maintenance/preserva-
tion of the State mandated area
from wildlife biologist Grant
Steelman (Wildlife Manage-
ment Agency), Dr. Harris Fried-
man (Board Chairman)
announcing the winning of a
grant to restore the Cypress
Knee Museum and a motion
by Gail Giles (Board member)
opposing the proposed FPL
coal burning power plant to be
located near the Fisheating
Creek Wildlife Management
Area.
Mr. Steelman reviewed the
year's maintenance projects
and the future eco-tourism site
of the ancient Belle Glade Indi-
an Mounds at Ft. Center on
Fisheating Creek, off Banana
Grove Road in Lakeport.
Opening the site to eco-
tourism was one of the first
projects Mr. Steelman under-
took when he filled the posi-
tion as WMA biologist, envi-
sioning a boardwalk,
information kiosks, and trails
for visitors to learn about the
native habitat and the ancient
Indian culture that established
the site around 1000 B.C.
The Belle Glade Indians
built complex geometric
shapes for their village and are
believed to have brought with
them from South America
their knowledge of hydrology
and agriculture. The multi-
mound areas include several
middens where the ancient
Indians cultivated maze, sculp-
tured artistic religious objects
for ceremonial practices, and
.occupied the area over some
2,000 years. Art objects recov-
ered from the site are housed
at the University of Florida's
Museum of Natural History
and could possibly be part of
the establishment of exhibits at
the restored Cypress Knee
Museum. Mr. Steelman said
they have contracted for an
artistic design of exhibits to be
constructed at the Ft. Center
historical site and when com-
pleted, it will be a major eco-
tourism attraction along
Fisheating Creek's pristine
wilderness area."
Mr. Steelman further out-
lined measures to protect the
Swallowtail Kite roosting area
on Fisheating Creek that
attracts the largest population
of the 20 roosting sites in Flori-
da, with an estimated more,
than 2,300 migratory Kites. As
part of the WMA efforts to pro-
tect the Kite population, Mr.
Steelman said that the Kites
had been recently moving
-some of their nesting areas
along the levy and the WMA is
attempting to use "decoys" to
attract them deeper into the
swamp, away from human
traffic. The WMA will look fur-
ther at the possibility of estab-
lishing a "Critical Wildlife
Area" as suggested by one of
the members. That would
dose the site for biological rea-
sons, although according to
Mr. Steelman, it could restrict
WMA from maintaining the
natural habitat. Presently, signs
are posted around the site on
state lands to prevent
encroachment into the roost-
ing area. The WMA was asked
by the Board to offer the option
of WMA-trained and approved
guides to be able to use the
area for eco-educational tours.
Dr. Greg Brock, Depart-


ment of Environmental Protec-
tion, made a motion to support
the designation of a "Critical
Wildlife Area" for Kite roosting,
if it enhances the management
and viability of the roost. The
motion was passed and Mr.
Steelman will put in a proposal
to the Agency for contracts to
conduct guided tours.
In reaction to the preserva-
tion of the Swallowtail Kite
roosts, a motion by board
member Gail Giles was pre-
sented to "oppose the installa-
tion of the FPL coal Power Park
proposed in Glades County
due to its potential negative
impact on Fisheating Creek."
The Settlement Agreement
Advisory Board is an official
state mandated body whose
purpose is to advise on issues
related to the management
and protection of the Fisheat-
ing Creek Wilderness Manage-
ment, thus, Dr. Friedman
addressed the issue and the
motion, opening discussion
from members and the public.
Glades County Commis-
sioner Butch Jones and "Save
Our Creek" Board Member
opposed the motion and
spoke favorably on behalf of
the Power Park and economic
benefits to Glades County.
Other board members
expressed concern for the
potential negative impact on
the Wildlife Management
Area, stressing that the facts
are not conclusive. There was
further discussion by partici-
pants that they did not yet
know all the facts, in order to
vote on the motion. Discussion
focused on questions regard-
ing the lack of specific quanti-
tative data from FPL on C02
and mercury emissions from
the plant's smokestacks, as
well as the impact of emissions
into underground aquifers
with the plant proposed to be
built only a few miles from
Fisheating Creek Wildlife Man-
agementArea.
Dr. Friedman questioned
"why a coal-burning plant was
proposed next to such an envi-
ronmentally sensitive area of
the most pristine wilderness in
Florida?" The FPL plant site
selection is on Lykes Brothers
property south of Nicodemous
Slough on State Road 78 near
Lakeport.
Glades Commissioner Paul
Beck, purported that "the plant
would be among the cleanest
i'itthe world@ and should be
welcomed." Doc Elkowitz,
Glades County Representative
on the SW Florida Regional
Planning Council, stressed that
"a decision regarding the coal
powered plant should be
based upon facts, not emo-
tion, but the facts were not yet
known." Glades Commission-
er Donna Storter asked how
the Board could vote to
oppose the Power Park if the
facts are not known. Dr. Fried-
man responded "that organi-
zations such as the Glades
County Board of County Com-
missioners, as well as School
Board and Economic Develop-
ment Council representatives
supported the Power Park
project without enough infor-
mation and without the Com-
mission holding public hear-
ings prior to their unanimous
vote on September 12, 2006,
supporting the location of the
coal powered plant in Glades
County."
FPL will begin the first step
in the approval process of state
agencies, filing with the


Department of Environmental
Regulation in a few weeks,
according to FPL's Stacy Foster
of FPL's environmental divi-
sion. FPL spokespersons
Grover Whidden, and Stacy
Foster also in the environment
division were present.
Several board members
and public participants
expressed concern regarding
the omission of public hear-
ings by the Glades County
Commission before they unan-
imously passed a resolution at
the Sept. 12 commission meet-
ing in support of locating the
coal-burning plant in Glades
County and omitting the spe-
cific proposal item from the
agenda (the proposal was an
inclusion in the County Manag-
er's report), although several
other rezoning issues were list-
ed specifically on the agenda
and included announcements
for public hearings.
The Sept. 12 minutes delin-
eate that "Chairman Butch
Jones reported that 'Mr. Taylor
or Mr. Hilton, (Community
Development Director) was
going to make a sizable
announcement,'" and "com-
mended them for 'keeping the
Board appraised of this for the
last several months."
Mr. Hilton stated in the
Commission meeting minutes
"that Glades County has been
working with FPL since Febru-
ary in a joint effort to locate the
power plant within Glades
County." He said "they have
had several pre-application
meetings with a number of
consultants and FPL staff and
that FPL identified two sites in
the County that met their crite-
ria." On Friday Sept. 7, Mr.
Hilton stated in the minutes
"he received an application for
site plan approval from Goder
and Associates, agents for FPL,
to locate the power plant in
Glades County." According to
Hilton, "the power plant repre-
sents an investment in the
County."
In other discussion at the
meeting, a proposal by Ellen
Peterson of ECOSWF (an eco-
logical organization of South-
west Florida) was passed to
consider accessibility by
canoes, kayaks through Cow-
bone Marsh by cutting a chan-
nel through tussocks (plants
dogging the creek) to promote
eco-tourism and keep the

entire length of FC available for
public use as delineated by the
Management Agreement The
motion passed unanimously.
Mr. Steelman agreed to write a
"short study" written report to
the WMA regarding the recom-
mendation as an overview. Dr.
Friedman appointed an ad hoc
committee of Jim Bryan
(Lykes Brothers), Deen Moun-
tain (SOC), Ellen Peterson
(SOC), and Paul Gray (Okee-
chobee Audubon) for further
research.
In other action, Dr. Fried-
man announced that the Flori-
da State Division of Historical
Resources recommended
funding the "Save Our Creeks"
proposal for restoration, reno-
vation, and preservation of the
Cypress Knee Museum in
Palmdale. A motion was made
by Helen Dixon to ask the FWC
to direct its staff to assist in the
appropriate restoration, devel-
opment and on-going mainte-
nance for the mutual better-
ment of the Museum and
Fisheating Creek Wildlife Man-
agement Area. The motion
passed unanimously.
