Police urge safe holiday month


Drivers asked
to make
smart decisions

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - According
to Clewiston Police Officer D.
Colburn, one of out every four
drivers he stopped last year on
Christmas Day were legally in-
toxicated.
It says something about the
way many choose to spend their


holidays.
The surprising fact also ex-
emplifies something that Officer
Colburn would like to change
this year.
Officer Colburn, the depart-
ment's DUI and traffic enforce-
ment officer, is tasked mainly
with catching driver's under the
influence and keeping them from
harming an innocent bystander.
His work becomes more con-
centrated around the holidays,
especially with the approach of
the Christmas and New Year's
festivities.
Driving under the influence,


and targeting the crime, is not
necessarily a holiday occur-
rence, and Mr. Colburn's work
sees him attempting to put at
least one person in jail every day
for breaking the law.
It can be a difficult thing to
do.
The stigma associated with
something like robbery or do-
mestic violence isn't quite as
strong in cases of DUI, Officer
Colburn explained.
"DUIs have almost become
a socially acceptable crime,"
he said. "It's almost common
place."


Christmas is coming: Homeowners decorate

So when the police do catch
them, they make sure that the
drivers are okay before they are
released, and most are automati-
cally suspended of. their licenses
for at least six months if it'is their
first offense.
Still, the possibility of an in-
creased number of violations ex-
ists during the holidays, officials
contend,
"People are celebrating more,:
they have family coming in," said
Officer Colburn. "Kids are also
getting off from college. They're
all coming back home from oth-
er locations."


Citing national statistics, ?he
officer said that just a little over
1,000 people were killed in traf-
fic crashes that involved a drive
with a blood alcohol concentra-
tion of .08 or higher.
While the two-year officer
hasn't seen it happen locally;
it doesn't mean that he will be
dropping his guard anytime
soon.

them the right to go out there

Suboffice plan



goes forward


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
At their Tuesday evening
meeting in LaBelle, Hendry
County commissioners learned
that they needed to make a fi-
nal decision on rebuilding the
Sheriff's suboffice in Clewiston
-- rebuild the old facility that
was rendered unusable by Hur-
ricane Wilma or build at the site
they've been considering on
Olympia Ave.
The consensus was to build
on Olympia. The county will be
able to get its insurance claim
although reimbursement for
rental space at the temporary
county complex will have to
wait till the new )building is be
gun.
The old building will be de-
molished later.
Countycommissioners made.

people unhappy when they vot-i
ed unanimously to deny a spe-;

allowed a vegetation recycling
center to operate on CR 78.
As at the October commis-
sion meeting, numerous resi-
dents of both Fort Denaud area
and Alva spoke against the re-
quest citing such concerns as
traffic, safety and noise.
In the end, Commissioner
Bill Maddox could not find a vi-
able reason to deny the request
that would stand' up in court,
except that he felt such a facility
would be incompatible with the
character ot the area. Although

Nursing home workers



protest their contracts


80 employees
seek higher wages
for work
/
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - Dozens of
Palm Terrace workers partici-
pated in an informational rally
outside of their workplace on
Friday, urging the facility's man-
agement company to negotiate


a fair contract for fair wages.
They carried picket signs and
waved to fellow supporters
driving past.
According to Dale Ewart,
vice president of SEIU Health-
care , the union representing
Palm Terrace workers since
1999 , talks between Palm
Terrace's management group
and the union have reached an
impasse.
The argument between the
two groups centers aroundwag-


es, said Mr. Ewart, who claimed
that the nursing home's man-
agement company refused to
consider enough of a wage in-
crease after its contract ran out
in June. "Generally, they earn �.---.
pretty low wages even under --
good circumstances," said Mr. .-
Ewart. According to him, the . ,
average pay for a CNA is $10,

stall in negotiations between their company and the union that

The Youth Fellowship at First United Methodist Church of
Clewiston gathered together this month to build snowmen.
Instant mashed potatoes were substituted for real snow.
Kitchen odds and ends were used for decorations. The
creations were only limited by the imaginations of those

The following students were
awarded a first and second
prize for turning in essays with
their thoughts on alcohol. The
contest was sponsored by the
local chapter of SADD (Students
Against Destructive Decisions)
at Clewiston Middle School.
Jalen Jamaal Rushing
Decisions you make deter-
mine the outcome of your future.
Decisions are choices that you
must make everyday of your life
-- whether they are good or bad.
Right decisions can lead to a
brighter and more successful fu-
ture.
However, destructive decisions
such as smoking, drinking, selling
dope, crack, and so forth can only
lead to trouble.
Alcohol affects people's minds
and makes them very unintel-
ligent. People who drink alcohol
are also unpredictable. Drinking
alcohol does heavy damage to
your body. When you drink alco-
hol, you lose your coordination.
Also, your reflexes are slowed
down, and you lost your self-con-
trol.
Your speech turns slurry, and
often you struggle to get your
words out. You have memory


lapses, and poor judgment. There
are also problems with your tem-
per. Your liver as well is badly af-
fected by drinking alcohol.
In researching the effects of
alcohol on the liver, I saw some
gross pictures. The normal liver
looks smooth, silky, soft and
beautiful. However, the diseased
liver looks puffy, bumpy, chewed
up and just plain gross.
Alcohol abuse also affects your
future goals and dreams.
When you drink alcohol, your
brain and body end up damaged,
especially for the athletes and the
intelligent people who plan to
reach the top of the world in life.
When you abuse your body
with alcohol, all of your hopes
and dreams are taken away. For
the rest of your life, you struggle to
find a home, food to eat, clothes
to wear and shoes to cover your
feet, all because of your poor de-
cisions to drink alcohol.
Not only does alcohol affect
you, it also involves others around
you.
People who drink and drive are
very dangerous and often kill and
injure many innocent people.
For example, Christmas night
in 1999, my cousin Latoya was
killed by a drunk driver while


Lake Okeechobee survivor series

adventure races announced.


Individuals, teams
invited to enter
rugged, challenging
competition

The Lake Okeechobee area of
Palm Beach County has always
been a wonder of nature thanks
to tis unique environment. This
region was a challenge for the
early pioneers, and starting Jan.
2008 it promises to be a chal-
lenge again, but in a totally differ-
ent way.
A series of four Lake
Okeechobee Survivor Series
Adventure Races has been an-
nounced by a subcommittee of
the Lake Okeechobee Regional
Economic Alliance (LORE).
The first of the four adventure
races or "Extreme Sports at the
Lake" is scheduled Jan. 20, 2008
beginning at 8 a.m., and it prom-
ises to be a challenge for even
the most 1 i a'dadventilte
racer or team dof racers. This
tree niour eerrit the shortest Of'
the scheduled four races to be
held throughout 2008) will test
the participants in running, bik-
ing, and challenging tasks, all the
while encouraging natural and
manmade obstacles.
The course designer, Ken-
neth Lutz, a long time resident,
has been secretive about specific
details, ensuring no one gets a
pre-race advantage. "The course
has been essentially built by na-
ture. But, we have added some
surprises that will test every par-
ticipant and every team," said Mr.
Lutz. The only details released
by Lutz were the starting loca-
tion which is the Pahokee Marina
and the start time which will be


8a.m.
Lutz has also issued a throw
down challenge to fire depart-
ments and law enforcement
units throughout Florida. "Flor-
ida's fire and law enforcement
departments love competition
and they're in great physical
shape. So we have a trophy spe-
cially designed for each. The
winning team gets to take the tro-
phy home.until the next race. At
the end of four races in 2008, the
teams with the best time get the
trophy and bragging rights until
the next Survivor Series Adven-
ture Races," he added.
These series of Adventure
Races are part of LORE's overall
mission to bring attention to the
Lake Okeechobee area and to
improve the region's economy
and tourism. Pahokee, South Bay
and Belle Glade will all host por-
tions of the races throughout the
series.
But, the real attraction is the
competition. . . .
SA-number of sponsors han e al-
ready come onboard to support
the effort and more are joining
the effort weekly.
To register for this first of four
races, teams and individuals may
call the Belle Glade Chamber of
Commerce at (561) 996-2745 or
go to the website www.lakeO-
survivorseries.com to download
an application. Competitors can
also register at www.active.com.
The participation fees are $40

experience required), $60 double
and $80 triple.

walking down the street. This per-
son was so drunk that he claims
he thought he had hit an animal.
My relatives and I often mourn
losing our loved one. We will nev-
er see her again on this side, and
that really saddens me.
I pledge to stay alcohol-free
because of the effects it would
have on me mentally, physically
and socially. It could destroy my
life and dreams, leaving me hope-
less. I want to be successful in
life, and I won't compromise my
goals and dreams for alcohol.
Sorry, alcohol, you just don't
fit into my plans for life!
Rontavius Lane
I have decided to stay alcohol-
free because I'm aware of how it
can destroy a person. Alcohol is
bad and it can have a profound
effect on a person. I'm staying
alcohol-free also because alcohol
destroys your mind, your health,
family and it ultimately causes
death sometimes.
But most of all, I have decided
to stay alcohol free because of a
very sad story my mother once
related to me. My mother told me
that when she was growing up,
one of her parents was a victim of
alcohol.


* My mother said that because
of her parent's alcohol use, the
whole family was affected and
was nearly destroyed.
My mother told me there were
days when her parents didn't
even recognize her and her sib-
lings. She said very often they
were home alone and were left to
fend for themselves.
My mother said one day
strangers came and took her and
her siblings away. They weren't
any happier in the new home be-
cause they were abused and they
often prayed to die.
And when- they did see that
particular parent again, alcohol
was still destroying their life. Alco-
hol caused the parent's speech to
be slurred so much so that it was
like a foreign language to them.
Alcohol use caused a degener-
ative disease in my grandparent,
cirrhosis of the liver. My grandpar-
ent is lucky to be alive today.
I'm staying alcohol free be-
cause of this story and because
how it made me sad when I saw
my beloved mother break into
teats when she told me about her
parent's bout with alcohol.
Alcohol is for losers and I'm
staying alcohol-free to be a win-
ner!

Playing 'Santa" can lead


to debt filled new year


By Mickie Anderson
University of Florida
GAINESVILLE, Fla. - With
more than half of us expecting to
play Santa for ourselves this holi-
day season, a University of Flor-
ida family finance expert warns
that being self-indulgent -- even
at bargain prices - can lead to a
bad case of buyer's remorse.
According to an annual con-
sumer survey conducted for the
National Retail Federation, 56
percent of us expect to treat our-
selves this season, taking advan-
tage of holiday sales. Another 30
percent aren't sure, and 13 per-
cent say they can resist tempta-
tion.
On top of the $816 the average
consumer expects to spend on
the holidays this year, they'll tack
on another $106 treating them-
selves, the survey said. The trend
has held steady. The same survey
in 2002 showed 55 percent of re-
spondents intended to spend on
+ themselves.
"If you start buying for your-
self while you're buying for other
people, especially, you really run
the risk of overspending," said
Michael Gutter, an assistant pro-
fessor in family financial manage-
ment with the Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences. "You're
just likely to spend more than you
intended and you're only going to
end up being frustrated in the re-
sult."
Gutter's No. 1 rule for avoiding
a financial holiday hangover: Be-
fore you ever step foot in a store,
make a budget. Either jot down
specific gift ideas for those, on
your list or the amount you can
spend on each person.
"Making those lists in advance
can help people really kind of set
limits, set boundaries for them-
selves," he said. "And if your
name isn't on the list of people
that you're buying for, then that
can sometimes be helpful."
Gail Cunningham, spokesman
for the Silver Spring, Md.-based


National Foundation for Credit
Counseling, says not sticking to a
budget is one of the biggest con-
sumer mistakes. "People are well
intentioned," she said. "About
half of the people that go out
shopping make a budget and half
will exceed that dollar amount."
Once you're out shopping, in-
stead of grabbing those half-price
shoes that go perfectly with your
new black skirt, pass the buck,
Gutter says. Go home and drop a
hint about the shoes to a relative
or friend who may be looking for
a good gift idea.
"If there's a sweater you really
like and you really wanted to get
it for yourself, or a video game or
whatever it is...there's nothing
wrong with letting people know,"
he said. "In fact, I find that if you
do that, people are grateful. Be-
cause no one knows what to get
anyone, most of the time."
If no one takes your well-
placed hint, evaluate the gifts you
do get. Often you can go back
and buy those perfect shoes with
a gift card or cash. Or you can
take back a present you don't like
and exchange it for the shoes, he
said.
Other rules on Mr. Gutter's list
to avoid a depressing January:
If you can do your holiday
shopping with cash or a debit
card, leave the interest-accruing
credit cards safely at home.
"It's the ultimate stopgap," he
said. "No matter howmuchyou're
using the debit card, you're going
to think 'whoa, whoa, whoa, did
I go over my balance?' With the
credit cards, we may not think
about it at all."
But many consumers don't
have the bank balance available
to pull off a cash-only Christmas,
he said. And for them, here's an-
other rule:
Do not, under any circum-
stances, use credit cards to charge
more than you can pay off by the
end of February without ignoring
other bills, he said.


Are you ready to battle a 'bug'?


Are you prepared for those
nasty stomach viruses that can
sometimes invade your home?
You know the ones where you
are up all night holding your ba-
by's head. Not to mention clean-
ing up the beds, steam cleaning
the carpet and doing laundry in
the wee hours of the morning.
Multiply this by every member in
your home. It is not a day at the
beach. I want to help you turn a
rough night into just a bad dream
instead of a nightmare.
When the bug attacks your
family it is usually in the middle of
the night and you can't run to the
pharmacy; you need to have the
necessary supplies at your finger
tips. Keep in mind that you can
get dehydrated very quickly if this
starts happening in your home.
So what do you need to have on
hand? Grab one of your old beach
bags and gather up the items that
your family is going to need.
Ask your doctor. When my son
was little, sports drink was just
about the only thing that would
replace electrolytes. Now there
is Pedialite and popsicles for the
children and many other kinds of
sport drinks. There are some over
the counter medicines that will
help to stop the throwing up and
queasiness: we used Emotrol. So
ask your doctor what is best for
your family and keep it on hand.
So what do you do? After the
initial explosion, it is time to clean
up. The longer it stays on the bed

and in the carpet the worse this is
going to be; a small handheld car-
pet steamer is going to make your
life easier. While are cleaning up
you still have to make a place for
your babies to rest: a little air mat-
tress that blows up quick can be
put in the bathroom or close by
for those emergency situations.
Poor babies! By the way, nothing
says I love you like a clean toilet at
this time. Also, a handy garbage
can for those times that you can't
get there! You may even want
to give them a little incentive for
hitting the bucket. Children may
not feel well but if they think they
are going to get some money for
each good hit then you could put
a smile on their face.
At time when the whole fam-
ily is in distress, it may be good to
have a sheet in your control jour-
nal that outlines what to do, just
in case you are the one who is
sick and your spouse is in charge.
Barking out orders when you feel
bad doesn't come across well. So
if it is written down and you have
everything on hand, there is no


panic.
What food do you keep on
hand? My pediatrician always
told us to only feed the baby clear
soups and diluted juices. This
means no noodles. One food that
my granny used to fix for us was
a very simple potato soup. Take
a potato and grate it in a sauce-
pan, add water to cover over it a
little and a bit of salt and cook.it
is done; only a few short minutes.
Remember don't feed your family
grape juice or red cranberry juice;
that makes an even bigger mess
to clean up. There are white ver-
sions of both of these. Dry toast,
crackers and plenty of TLC and
you will be back to normal in a
few hours. Put some of these
things in your beach bag.
Use your internet to read up
and print out the signs for dehy-
dration. Keep this in your Control
Journal. The one sign I know
is about the skin on top of your
hand. If you pinch it, it will stay
pinched up. Keep your doctors
phone number in your Control
Journal too. As their little throat
gets raw, try to get them to drink
some water that is cool; maybe
one ice cube in it, just before
they throw up. The cool water
actually feels good to the back
of the throat, especially if they
have nothing else in their tum-
my but hot stomach acid. This
works for morning sickness too. I
am not a doctor or a nurse, but we
all have to play these roles when


this hit our family. Talk to your
doctor about medications, set up
an emergency sheet for your Con-
trol Journal that tells anyone what
to do and then just stay calm and
watch for signs of dehydration.
Don't forget your doctor's phone
numbers on this sheet and wash
your hands often.
When the stomach flu rages in
your home, those old towels be-
come a valuable asset. As you up-
grade your regular towels, keep a
few of the old ones for times like
this. An old beach towel makes a
great cover for that air mattress
and another one will make a
blanket to cover up with. It is nev-
er fun when you are dealing with
the whole family in sick mode,
but you can get through it, with
a little thinking about this right
now. The sand bucket can catch
those accidents when your baby
can't make it to the bathroom.
Then you can use the little sand
shovel to scoop up the misfires.
What a day at the beach!

Try a new holiday green bean casserole


I can't stand canned soups be-
ing used as an ingredient in cas-
seroles -- it's a major pet peeve
of mine. The very thought of a
can of thick, glutinous glop mess-
ing with my casserole makes me
cranky. And I'm doubly unnerved
by canned green beans.
But come Thanksgiving, mil
lions of people all over the United
States mix those two creepy in-
gredients together and just love it.
Except me. I'm a hater. But I like
the idea of a green bean casserole
and was convinced it could be a
good thing. So I messed around
with a homemade version not re-
quiring either ingredient, and barn
-- it's outta of this world (sorry for
stealing your "bam" Emeril, but
you'd agree if you had tasted it!)
One caveat to homemade version
-- I acquiesced to the canned fried
onions. Even in my most reticent
green bean casserole snobbery, I
can still recognize perfection --
you just gotta have those canned
onions!
So ... I made this version of
Green Bean Casserole this past
Thanksgiving and let' me tell
you, IT ROCKS! It was so good, I
would make it again just to snarf
half of it down myself. Honestly, it
really did the trick and made me
a very happy camper. So don't be
hatin'! And listen, if you are one
of the many that love you some
green bean casserole regardless
of ingredients, wait till you try this
one. Your eyes will roll back in
your head and your toes will curl.
Yes, it's that good. Enjoy!

THE CASSEROLE ITSELF:
2 pounds frozen skinny green
beans or use fresh
4 tablespoons butter, divided in
half (always use unsalted butter!)
1 splash of vegetable oil (I used
safflower)
1 pound wild mushrooms,

at the grocery store)
3 cloves garlic, pressed
salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons Italian blend
cheeses (same as topping

3/4 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup white wine (I used a
chardonnay)
2 cups cream (I used half and
half and it worked fine)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
To make the topping, blend
the onions and cheese together in
a small bowl; set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, place
the green beans. If you are using
frozen beans, just put them in fro-

sure you have steamed them to a
tender crisp doneness and cooled
them a bit; then put them in the
bowl.

Manatees stay on endangered list - for now


The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) voted Dec. 5 to approve
the manatee management
plan and deferred a decision
about rule changes to reclassify
manatees from endangered to
threatened. The Commission
also directed staff to re-exam-
ine the imperiled species listing
process and bring back alterna-
tives.


"Today we had a landmark
opportunity to pass the mana-
tee management plan," said
Commission Chairman Rodney
Barreto. "It's the right deci-
sion."
The Commissioners asked
staff to look at a solution for
species that have been subjects
of petitions and are in the re-
classification process.
Staff will work with stake-


holders to get input about alter-
natives.
"It is extremely important
we all take a deep breath," Mr.
Barreto said.
Commissioners said they-
heard the comments from
stakeholders and the governor
and want to consider a new par-
adigm for the listing process.
"An imperiled species listing
process should be designed in


a way that it is easy for the pub-
lic to understand," said Kipp
Frohlich, team leader for the
manatee plan. "A listing process
should not be a source of con-
fusion or divisiveness."
The management plan and
reclassification had been sched-
uled for consideration at the
September meeting, but actions
were deferred at the request of
Gov. Charlie Crist.


touch of oil .(the oil 'keeps the but-
ter from burning). Add the mush-
rooms, garlic, salt and pepper and
cook till mushrooms are done--it'll
take about 5 minutes. Turn down
the heat if necessary and keep the
mushrooms moving periodically.
Remove the mushrooms from the
heat and set aside.
Now add the remaining but-
ter to the pan and add the broth
and wine, bringing it to a simmer.
In the meantime, toss the cheese
with the. flour. Add this cheese
mixture to the simmering broth,
whisking together till well blend-
ed. As the sauce starts to thicken,
slowly add the cream, whisking
all the while. Allow to simmer
about 10 minutes on low. Be care-
ful -- too hard a boil and the sauce
will separate.
Now throw the sauce over
the green beans, toss together to
blend. Place the sauced up beans
in a 9 x 13 baking dish, sprinkle
with your topping on top and
place in the middle of your pre-
heated oven, cooking for about 15


minutes or until all is nice and hot
and beans are thoroughly cooked
through.

Florida still



fishing capital


By Bob Wattendorf
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
Florida cannot be beat as the
number one place to cast a line,
pitch a lure or land a lunker. No
tall fisher's tale here -- this title
has been earned, according to
a survey by the U.S. Census Bu-
reau.
Every five years the Census
Bureau conducts the "National
Survey of Fishing, Hunting and
Wildlife-Associated Recreation."
This survey is the gold standard
for comparing outdoor recre-
ational activities between the
states. Once again, it proves that
Florida is the number-one fish-
ing destination, according to the
2006 results.
The facts tell where anglers
go for the best fishing opportuni-
ties. Florida provided 46.3 million
days of recreational fishing in
2006 versus 41.1 million days in
Texas, the second-highest state.
Of fishing days spent in Florida,
4.8 million days were by tourists
(nonresidents), while Wiscon-
sin, the second-highest state for
tourist days, provided 3.8 million
days. In terms of nonresident an-
glers, Florida is also number one
with 885,000, versus number
two, North Carolina with less
than half that at 395,000.
But the story does not end
there. Overall Florida again
ranked first in number of fish-
ing participants age 16 and older
with 2.77 million. Runner-up
Texas had 2.53 million partici-
pants. However, in 2001 Florida
had 3.10 million anglers, so
there has been a decline of ap-
proximately 11 percent over five
years, according to these esti-
mates.
If you look at the decline as
a percentage of the population,
which has been rapidly increas-
ing, the percent decline is a little
more dramatic. In 2001, national
rates were 16 percent, and in
Florida 17 percent of the popula-
tion fished. Those rates dropped
to 13 percent nationally and to
14 percent in the Sunshine State
in 2006. On the positive side,
the number of fishing days per
angler has increased nationally,
with the average angler fishing
17 days out of the year in 2006.
Anglers in Florida spent $4.4
billion in 2006, allowing Florida
to claim another number one
spot as the place where anglers
spend the most money. The
Lone Star State was second best
with $4.3 billion spent on fish-
ing. Recreational fishing dollars
helped to support 75,068 jobs in
Florida, again making it number
one, with Texas trailing behind
with 58,938 jobs. This economic


Florida Fish

Busters
trend is great news for Florida,
partially because state and local
taxes from the sale of fishing-
related goods and services gen-
erated $441 million for general
funds.
In spite of the national esti-
mates of fishing participation for
all U.S. anglers (does not include
foreign anglers) over 16 years of
age decreasing, actual fishing li-
cense sales for both freshwater
and saltwater have increased
in Florida. From 2001-02, with
1,070,577 licenses sold to 2006-
07 with 1,188,092, there was an
increase of 11 percent in sales
of saltwater licenses. Fresh-
water license sales increased,
from 587,413 sold in 2001-02 to
630,078 in 2006-07, showing an
increase of seven percent. Al-
though not enough to keep pace
with the population increase, it
is certainly better than compet-
ing states.
In calendar year 2006, the
National Survey estimated 2.77
million anglers fished in Florida,
and during fiscal year 2006-07
(July 1 to June 30), 1.55 million
fishing licenses were sold. This
discrepancy is partially the result
of seniors (age 65 and older),
resident saltwater shoreline an-
glers and several other groups,
including those fishing from li-
censed saltwater piers or char-
ter boats, being exempt from
licensing.
No one can dispute the facts
and figures. Florida remains the
Fishing Capital of the World be-
cause of great resources and
responsible management. With
a huge variety of fish, fishing wa-
ters and fishing styles to choose
from, along with year-round
fishing ,weather, there is little
doubt that Florida will remain
the place to go fishing. You can
help ensure a vibrant future with
high quality, sustainable and
safe fishing opportunities by be-
ing an ethical angler, mentoring
a youth or friend and keeping
your license current.

Salvation Army pulls


stock toys from shelves


LUTZ - In reaction to the
ever-changing toy recall list, The
Salvation Army is pulling all used
toys from its 59 thrift and family
stores in Florida.
"This is what we needed to
do," said Major Kenneth Morris,
the Divisional Secretary for the
Florida Division. "We want to
make sure our patrons and their
children are protected."
Morris' department oversees
26 thrift and family stores in
Florida.
"It is estimated that less than
five percent of total annual thrift
store income is from used toy
sales.
In Monroe County, where
there are five thrift and family
stores, the impact will be notice-
able, said Major Steve Welch,
Salvation Army officer for the
Florida Keys.
Welch said his stores sell


about $100 a day in used toys.
"My concern is what we are
going to tell those that come
in who can't afford to buy new
toys."
Captain Thomas McWilliams,
area commander in West Palm
Beach, said his staff stopped sell-
ing used toys about six weeks
ago.
"We don't have the staff to
comb through the toys, it wasn't
worth the man power," he said.
Pulling the toys is also a man-
date from The Salvation Army
Southern Territory which re-
quested this week to pull the toys
in response to the toy recall.
Salvation Army officers are in-
structed to remove the used toys

WASHINGTON - U.S. Sena-
tor Mel Martinez (R-FL) an-
nounced on Friday, Dec. 6, that
the Senate has approved a reso-
lution recognizing the 60th anni-
versary of the establishment of
Florida's Everglades. The mea-
sure, introduced jointly by Sena-
tors Martinez and Bill Nelson (D-
FL), was approved unanimously
by the Senate late Thursday.


"Florida's Everglades are a.
national treasure and deserve
national recognition," said Sen-
ator Martinez. "This resolution
underscores the significance of
the Everglades, the importance
of the ecosystem to Florida and
our nation, and the federal dedi-
cation to the comprehensive
restoration plan."


Florida to host National Weatherization Conference


TALLAHASSEE - More than
1,400 weatherization specialists
from across the United States will
be in Orlando next week when
Florida hosts the 2007 National
Weatherization Training Confer-
ence for the first time. Sponsored
by the U.S. Department of Energy,
the December 9 - 12 conference
will address the national train-
ing needs of states involved in
the Weatherization Assistance
Program, which works to reduce
energy costs for low-income fam-
ilies.
In Florida, the Weatheriza-
tion Assistance program is ad-
ministered by the Department of
Community Affairs. The state's
weatherization program helps
needy Floridians - particularly
the elderly, disabled and chil-
dren - by improving the energy


efficiency of their homes while
ensuring their health and safety.
The Florida program has been
creating energy efficient homes
and promoting conservation for
more than 27 years, with an aver-
age of 1,200 homes weatherized
each year.
"Every dollar invested in the
program produces a return of
$2.69 in benefits," said Com-
munity Affairs Secretary Tom
Pelham. "The program makes
a significant difference for those
who need it by cutting utility bills,
creating energy-efficient, sustain-
able, housing and reducing the
health risks to residents by pro-
tecting their homes from extreme
temperatures."
Through the Weatherization
Assistance Program, low-income


families may realize an average
yearly savings of between $250
and $350 in energy costs. At the
same time, publicly and privately
funded weatherization measures
reduce national energy demand
by the equivalent of 18 million
barrels of oil per year. Florida low-
income families pay 18 percent
or more of their annual incomes
for energy, compared to only 3.5
percent for other families. After
weatherization services have
been performed, households of-
ten see their monthly utility bills
cut in half.
Gov. Charlie Crist, who has
made energy efficiency and glob-
al climate change a hallmark of
his administration, noted that the
weatherization program has been
a leader in providing residential


energy efficiency and conserva-
tion. Early this year Governor Crist,
had an energy audit performed
at the Governor's Mansion thaf
resulted in numerous energy effi
ciency and weatherization steps,,
including the installation of smart
thermostats, compact fluorescent,
light bulbs, air sealing devices and,
a solar water heater for the pool,
Topics to be addressed at
the Orlando conference include
building technologies, health and
safety, auditing and diagnostic
testing procedures and equipl
ment, and program manage-'
ment. A manufactured home will'
be set up at the site to spotlight'
correct installation methods of
energy-saving materials. The cod-'
ference will be held at the Disney:
Coronado Springs Hotel.


Winter brings increased dangers of carbon monoxide


TALLAHASSEE -- The Florida
Department of Health (DOH) urg-
es Floridians to take precautions
to prevent carbon monoxide
(CO) poisoning during the cold
winter months. As temperatures
drop, the potential for CO poison-
ings and deaths rise.
"Carbon monoxide can be'fa-
tal if people are exposed to high
levels of CO, even for short peri-
ods of time," said Dr. Lisa Conti,
Director of the Division of Envi-
ronmental Health. "Floridians
who use indoor gas heaters and
fireplaces need to ensure direct
exhaust venting to the outside, to


regularly check and maintain fuel
burning appliances, and monitor
themselves and loved ones care-
fully for signs of CO poisoning,"
Invisible, odorless and taste-
less, CO is a highly poisonous
gas produced by burning fuels
such as gasoline, natural gas,
kerosene, charcoal and wood.
Inside a home, CO can come
from a gas-fueled furnace, gas
water heater, gas clothes dryer,
gas ranges, kerosene space heat-
ers, portable generators, gas or
charcoal grills, fireplaces or wood
stoves. The risk of illness or death
increases with the level of CO in


the air and the amount of time ex-
posed. Dangerous CO levels can
result when home appliances are
not properly maintained or when
used incorrectly. Anyone who sus-
pects symptoms of CO poisoning
should go outside immediately. If
a person has collapsed or is not
breathing, call 911 for emergency
medical assistance immediately
from a safer location (outdoors or
a neighbor's home).
Signs of carbon monoxide poi-
soning include:
* Fatigue
* Chest pain
* Impaired vision and coordi-


nation
* Headaches
* Dizziness, confusion, nau-'
sea.
How to prevent carbon mon-
oxide poisoning:
* Install and use fuel-burninn
appliances according to manu-
facturer instructions.
* Have fuel-burning appliance
es inspected and serviced annu-
ally by a licensed contractor.
* Inspect exhaust ventilation
systems, including chimneys,
flues and vents, every year.


Broadband feasibility study to bring forth a provider


Broadband feasibility study for
the six counties and four com-
munities of Florida's Heartland
Region (FHREDI region) bring
forth a provider.
Florida Heartland REDI, Inc.
(FHREDI) completed a regional
broadband study in the spring of
2007. The study concluded that
Florida's Heartland is a strong
candidate for the launch of a Ru-
ral ISP (RISP).
Jerry and Deanna Pollard of
VistaNet are in the first phase of
deploying a wireless broadband
network in Hardee, Highlands
and Okeechobee Counties. Their
plans are to extend the wireless
network from coast to coast and
deep into the Heartland Region.

Smart shopping may lead to better credit


By Sean Moore
One of the biggest questions
we get when we sit and council
our clients is: What will it take for
the bank to make a small busi-
ness loan to me and my compa-
ny? Well, there are a lot of factors,
but if you want me to give you
the item that they will probably
check first- credit! If you go into
a bank and you present them a
business plan that makes sense,
financial projections that look
great, and they pull your credit
report and the printer runs out of

your credit is- you are not getting

While some banks are willing
to go a little lower than others on
credit scores, the safest target to
aim for, and even this is border-

be the mid 600's. Obviously the
higher you go, the better your

many people counseled are in

So, why do I bring that ques-

Christmas shopping season and
a lot of the shopping we do is
done on credit. If you rack up
thousands of dollars in credit card
debt, then you do run the risk of
being unable to pay that money
back in a timely manner. If you
default on one of those cards or
it gets sent to a collection agency,
your credit score will drop along
with the odds of you hearing that

Two accused of taking railroad property


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Two men were charged with
felony grand theft on Dec. 1, af-
ter they were spotted by Glades
County Sheriff Deputies removing
railroad equipment from private
property in Palmdale.
Arrest reports show Armando
Alonso, 57, of Hialeah, and Lemay


Ynterian, 24, of Fort Myers, were
spotted by Deputy Sheriff John
Loper in possession of railroad
scrap metals valued at over $300.
The discovery was made near the
railroad crossing on U.S. 27 at
State Road 29.
The arrest report stated a traf-
fic stop was made soon after the
Deputy spotted the alleged thefts
and a search of the Chevrolet flat


bed truck discovered the scrap
metal.
"Yea, just collecting scrap met-
al to get a little Christmas money,"
Mr. Ynterian stated, according to
the report.
Deputies asked if the men had
permission to pick up the metal
and Ynterian stated, "No. It was
just laying there on the side of the
road."


Officials with the South Central
Florida Express, Incorporated told
authorities that they have had a
lot of problems with the theft of
their equipment, rails and other
track materials. They told authori-
ties that they wanted to prosecute
the pair.
The investigation also found
that the tag on the vehicle was as-
signed to another vehicle. The ve-


hicle was seized and transported
to the Glades County Sheriff's Of-
fice impound lot.
Both suspects were also
charged with trespassing on prop-
erty and interference with a rail-
road track or equipment.
Both men were held in the
Glades County Jail in lieu of
$10,000 bond.

HRMC participates in A Day in the Life of a Nurse'


Initially developed by the
Nursing Shortage Consortium of
South Florida, "A Day in the Life
of a Nurse" program was imple-
mented to eliminate the nursing
shortage in South Florida. A total
of 50 students, who expressed
interest in the nursing profession,
came from LaBelle, Moore Ha-
ven and Clewiston High Schools
to participate in the shadowing
program held at Hendry Regional
Medical Center on Nov.16.
David McClusky (Clinical Edu-
cation Assistant) coordinated the
events of the day, along Sharon
Murphy (O.R. Nurse Manager)
who also welcomed tie group. In
addition to touring the hospital,
the students learned about nurs-
ing through some thought-pro-
voking question and answer ses-
sions, video presentations, and
speakers from the nursing staff of
HRMC, Hendry County Health De-
partment and the School Board.
Participants were also in-
formed about the recruitment and
retention problems that hospitals
are dealing with today and were

asked to complete a pre-assess-
ment form regarding their current
knowledge of nursing. Then at the
end of the day, the students were
asked to complete a post-assess-
ment to see how their knowledge
had changed. Based on their new
found understanding, many of
the participants found they had


developed a renewed desire for
the nursing field.
In wrapping up A Day in The
Life of a Nurse, David McClusky
and Sharon Murphy shared a
common goal - to leave the stu-
dents with a message that nurs-
ing is dynamic, exciting, vital and
rewarding.

Glades NAACP honors Health Care District and Glades


BELLE GLADE - The Glades
Area Branch of the NAACP cel-
ebrated the diversity of the com-
munities of Western Palm Beach,
Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee
counties during its Fourth An-
nual Freedom Fund and Awards
Banquet, while honoring corpo-
rations and individuals whose ef-
forts further the NAACP mission
to empower the community and
ensure fair treatment of all citi-
zens. The Health Care District of
Palm Beach County was one of
three recipients of the 2007 Cor-
porate Award at the recent event
held at the Dolly Hand Cultural
Arts Center.
"We appreciate the Health
Care District's commitment to
our community," said Linda John-
son, president of the Glades Area
Branch NAACP and area director
for the Palm Beach, Broward and
Miami-Dade NAACP branches.
"Their programs and services
support the NAACP's overall mis-
sion by providing quality health-
care to the community."
The Health Care District, which
operates Glades General Hospi-
tal, is currently building a new
centrally-located regional hospi-
tal and medical campus for the
southeastern Lake Okeechobee
communities. The technologi-
cally-advanced 70-bed acute-care
facility will further advance the
Health Care District's mission
of providing access to quality
health care for all Palm Beach
County residents, including life-
saving trauma services, health
coverage for the uninsured and
skilled rehabilitation and nursing
home care. The Health Care Dis-
trict of Palm Beach County also
keeps students healthy and ready
to learn by providing a nurse in
each Palm Beach County public
school and a team of behavioral
health professionals in 46 public
elementary schools to address
students' behavioral and emo-
tional issues.
"The Glades Area Branch of
the NAACP plays a vital leader-
ship role in securing justice and
human rights in our community,"
said Dr. Effie C. Grear, chair of the
Freedom Fund Committee for the
Glades Area Branch of the NAACP
and Health Care District of Palm

Beach County Commissioner.
"We are proud to recognize the
Health Care District for its contin-
uedsupport of our community's
health care needs."
Receiving one of the pres-
tigious individual awards was
Sandra Gerber, a telemetry nurse
and nurse supervisor at Glades
General Hospital. Nurse. Gerber
won the 2007 Ruth S. Wedgworth
Humanitarian Award in recogni-


tion of her dedication and com-
mitment to community programs
beyond the hospital doors. "San-
dra has gone above and beyond
the call of duty in volunteering to
provide health care by linking the
community to vital services," said
Ms. Johnson.
"Nurse Gerber is the health
committee chairperson for the
NAACP's student health media
campaign and utilizes her nurs-
ing talents as a volunteer at faith-
based health clinics and nutri-
tional education projects in Belle
Glade. In addition, she serves as a
board member of Street Beat, an
after-school program to mobilize,
train and employ teams of youth
to serve as tutor mentors and
teachers for younger students,
other youth and adults.
"The entire Glades commu-
nity benefits from Sandra's brand
of nursing advocacy," said Glades
General Hospital CEO David
Zechman. "Her knowledge of
health and human service deliv-
ery systems and her individual-
ized understanding of the needs
of the community at-large bridge
the gap between our community
and the care provided at Glades
General. She is one of the many

Eastside Elementary

Healthy Kids
Research has shown that good
nutrition is linked to improved stu-
dent behavior and lower absentee-
ism. When a child eats breakfast at
home or school, their math scores
are higher. 'If your child is physi-
cally active, your child will also
perform higher in math.
When a person participates
in physical activity, studies have
shown it lowers levels of anxiety
and stress.
Eastside Elementary is partici-
pating in the Healthy Schools Pro-
gram.
We have established a commit-
tee, dedicated with members who
want to see an improvement in stu-
dents' health and promote physical
activities in schools. Why do these
teachers, parents, students, and
community members do it? Be-
cause promoting children's well-
ness and encouraging physical ac-
tivities are increasingly becoming
a societal issue. It is an opportunity
to effect, real positive change in
our students, the most vulnerable
citizens.
The following websites offer
parents a wealth of information
on keeping their families healthy.

The light shines in the darkness K i


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
It is important that we do not
lose faith in the presence of God
in our world.
Victor Frankl, survivor of a
Nazi concen-
tration camp
in World War
II, noted the
desperate need
that all human
beings have .
for hope. Hope .
keeps us alive. '
In the concen- John
tration camps Hicks
especially, the
prisoners needed to have some
hope of rescue. Their hopes for
a rescue became especially fer-
vent around Christmas time. Ev-
eryone dreamed of going home
for Christmas. As Christmas
neared, the prisoners stopped
complaining about lack of food,
beatings, freezing temperatures,
and all the other inhuman prac-
tices they endured. They focused
on the hope of going home.


But then Christmas came and
went with no rescue. Some pris-
oners committed suicide. Some
just stopped getting out of bed or
eating, and one morning simply
didn't wake up. It was as if they
had willed themselves to die.
Six months later, when Allied
soldiers liberated the prisoners,
they found that almost half of
the prisoner population had died
since Christmas. They could not
live without hope.
There are hard times in all of
our lives. There are times when
we find ourselves walking in
darkness. Death in the family.
Death of a marriage. Disappoint-
ment in someone we admire. A
terrifying diagnosis in the doc-
tor's office. Problems at school.
Rejection by our friends.
The Scriptures tell us, "The
people who walked in dark-
ness have seen a great light."
(Isaiah 9:2) In the midst of our
darkness', it's important that we
don't lose hope, that we don't
lose faith. We must keep going
and believe that we will see a
great light.


In another WWII prison
camp, one of the prisoners had
a candle which he guarded with
care. Made of wax and animal
fat, it provided a potentially, life-
saving nourishment in a situation
where starvation was common.
One morning, a fellow prison-
er announced to the camp, "To-
morrow is Christmas Eve." And
as prisoners in concentration
camps did every year, someone
commented, "Next year, we will
be home for Christmas." One
prisoner, lost for a moment in
happier memories, whispered,
"At Christmas time, candles burn
and bells ring." The other men
nodded, savoring the treasured
memories.
That comment worked a pro-
found change in the heart of the
prisoner with the candle. That
night, when the camp barracks
were dark, he slipped outside.
He returned to the bunkhouse
with one glowing ember from
the fire pit. He set up his trea-
sured tallow candle on a crate
and lit it with the burning ember.
Soon, all the men in the bunk-


house had gathered around. The
light reflected off bony shoulders
and hollowed cheeks, but the
eyes of the prisoners were filled
with the light of that candle. The
light from the candle filled the
whole bunkhouse. None of the
men had seen a candle glow
so brilliantly as that half-eaten
candle did. A priest broke the
reverent silence to remark, "It
is Christmas. The light shines in
darkness." And a fellow prisoner
added: "And the darkness com-
prehended it not."
The following year, those
prisoners were home for Christ-
mas. Some went home to re-
sume their lives. Some went
home to be with the Lord, and
to the life that is truly life. Every
Christmas, however, those who
survived remembered the gift of
light that shone even in the dark-
est places.
There is a light that will shine
even in our darkest places., This
is the amazing promise of Christ-
mas--God has not forgotten us
nor forsaken us. In fact, God has
become one of us.


Advent: Seeing a great artist at work


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
It is easy to be a "Monday
morning quarterback" and see
vyhat errors the team made,
and to tell why
things came
out as they did.
I see mystery .
programs that "
have all of the
pieces in front
of the audience
and then, at
the end, the fa- Samuel S.
mous detective Thomas
puts them all
together and comes to the logi-
cal and final conclusion about
who did it. One of these detec-
tives seems to have an uncanny
way.of deciding who is guilty of
the murder and spends an hour
slowly harassing the guilty party
and gathering clues at the same
time. Finally, the inescapable net
is cast; the guilty party is shown
the evidence and hauled off. It all
comes together, but each step
[i...,, th- e v..:,. his its . rin iMean-
,r-,'- :..nl pl:_.,?" P.'- il,,:niung" is'
always easier and much more
accurate than predicting!
In the real world, I believe


things unfold as God intends; we
cannot predict on our timetables
and things do not always unfold
in neat packages (all of our mys-
teries aren't solved in one hour!)
or even as we would want them
to be.
Advent is a season of the
Church year when we get ready
for Christmas: the coming of the
Lord. We prepare as we hear
about the pronouncements (the
Bible gives the background sto-
ries about what took place sur-
rounding Jesus' birth). Now,
2,000 years later, we can look
back and say "Of course!" Even
the Lord's enemies acknowl-
edged that "Truly this was the
Son of God (Matthew 27:54)."
It's easier to be a Monday
morning quarterback when we
have all of the signs and centu-
ries of history to affirm the story
that the Lord has come. Rather
* than trying to predict or trying to
second-guess God, I like to look
at giving thanks for where we
are, working to do good here and
now and letting tomorrow worry
ab'ut itself It's not all aboutwait-
ing to see how things will turn
out, or even sliding through the
"meantime" (There's good Bibli-
cal precedent for not concentrat-


ing on outcomes; "Therefore do
not be anxious for tomorrow, for
tomorrow will be anxious for it-
self. Let the day's own trouble be
sufficient for the day (Matthew
6:34). Now we are privilege to
know when the prophesies were-
fulfilled, when the hopes were re-
alized, when the long-awaited ap-
pearance happened. The getting
ready for Christmas, what Advent
is all about, is a time of realizing
that all of the signs were there,
but also of doing something on
our own to make the day all the
more special, too. We can look
at the Christmas story and know
that "it came out all right" with
all of the pieces in place, and the
clues being there, and the hopes
and dreams were fulfilled. Those
who were the most fulfilled by it
all, though, were those who saw
the birth of Jesus and said "Of
course!" because they actively
got ready for His coming. Christ-
mas is a few weeks away; when
it arrives, and if we prepare for
it by doing something each day,
we will also be able to say "Of
course!"
The time now is to live in an-
ticipation and hope, but also in
doing something that contrib-
utes to what we wait for. Each


time we share in getting ready,
in preparing, in doing something
special to make the holiday our
own; we prepare and we share
in the joy of the moment at the
same time. I get a certain joy
each time I buy a present for
someone, each time I mail a gift
-to a special person far away, in
writing notes in the cards I send,
in contacting someone I haven't
heard from in a long time. The
joy of the moment is part of it
all, and contributes to the special
joy of the "big day" too. In this
way, each day is special as well
as the Christmas celebration to
come. We live in the moment,
not just waiting for tomorrow, or
being impatient about what is to
come.
There is a special satisfaction
in knowing that day will come;
and also in doing something
now to make it more special.
When I was young, "waiting for
Christmas" was something to
be gotten through; now it has a
meaning all of its own. Each step
along the way contributes to the
big day and makes it all so much
more "Christmas." It all comes
together and I see it, and say "Of
course!" - The great Master has
put all of the pieces together.

The thought of Jesus


By Jackie Miller, Minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Of all the thoughts my mind
could conceive, nothing com-
pares with that of the Lord Je-
sus Christ. He existed before all
things and through Him all things
came into being. He sustains the
universe through His power and
reflects the very glory of God. He
is the image of the Father and
through Him the Father is known.
All the treasures of wisdom and
knowledge are hidden in Him. He
dwells in majesty and glory and
is worshipped with the Father by
myriads of angelic beings.
The miracle of miracles oc-
curred -when the Savior became
a human being like you and me.
He lived among men -- suffering,
sorrowful, sinful men. He did
not despise us, but extended His
fathomless love every step of His
earthly sojourn. People were not
attracted to His physical appear-
ance; but saw in His character,
actions arid words; something
strangely beautiful, authoritative,
pure and true. He was the kind-
est, most tender and understand-
ing, patient one who ever lived.
Jesus touched the untouch-
ables, blessed little children,
comforted the bereaved, healed
the sick and gave sight to the
blind. He laid aside His own in-
terest to have compassion on
people. He forgave the penitent
and extended His mercy to those
whom others rejected. He was
a helper to the helpless. He saw
into the depth of man's soul and
knew the innermost needs of the
human heart. He experienced
perfect sympathy for the bro-
ken-hearted and wept with the
crushed in spirit.
But Jesus came with the su-
preme intention of laying down
His life for ours on the cross. He
experienced the depths of suffer-
ing as He hung between heaven
and earth as He bore our sins on
His own body. He poured out
Himself in death that we might
have life. He arose from the grave
triumphing over death and ever
lives to make intercession for us
at the Father's side.
I count it the most exalted
privilege to belong to Jesus my
Master. I have experienced His
transcendent love and transform-
ing power. Though He knew all
about my self-centeredness and


though I've failed Him countless
times, He reached out to me and
touched me. He forgave me and
accepted me and set me free. His
grace was greater than all my sin.
He is more than a historical fig-
ure. He is a living Person. He has
filled my heart with His Spirit and
embraced me in His eternal love.
The thought of Jesus thrills
my soul and satisfies my deepest
longings. My adoration of Him
knows no bounds. In the night
seasons I sing praises to Him.
During the rush of the day I lift
my heart to Him. When dark-
ness deepens about me, I abide
in His marvelous light. I delight in
His fellowship and rejoice in His
presence. I long to know Him, as
I am known.
The pleasures of the world
are worthless in light of gain-
ing Jesus and enjoying Him. In
a world of weariness, He is my
rest. In a world of loneliness, He
is my Friend. In a world of chaos,
war and frustration, He is my
source of quietness, serenity and
repose.
Though others may fail me
and comforts may part, Jesus
promised to never leave nor for-
sake me and on His promise I
can rely. His grace can quiet ev-
ery storm. His consolation can
wipe away every falling tear..His
strength can lighten every load.
His security can overcome every
fear. And His presence can make
Spring out of every dark and dis-
mal day.
In the future ages Jesus will
continue to show the riches of
God's grace and there will be
endless opportunities to revel in
redeeming love. I will walk by His
side and see His face. My ecstasy
will be measureless -- all because
of Jesus! How can I describe my
overwhelming gratitude!
My friend, this same Jesus
who is exalted in heaven, who
has touched the lives of count-
less men and women, and who
has come into my own life also
wants to accept you. Won't you
turn and find your own spiritual
longings satisfied? Believe the
Gospel, Repent of sins, Confess
faith in Him and be baptized to
wash away your sins, and then
live as He commanded. Your
eternal destiny depends on what
you personally decide to do with
the Lord Jesus Christ.

"SECRET TO BETTER HEALTH REVEALED"
The latest research points to some preiriously overlooked factors
affecting a persons general health. And, it's not what you might
think. This common condition is linked to Diabetes, Heart Attacks
and Heart Disease, Low Birth Weight Babies and Miscarriage, Sinus
and Lung conditions, and Chronic Infections and Inflammation
throughout the body. It is very easily treated, but often goes undi-
agnosed and untreated. Because it is visible in the mouth only,
regular visits dental visits are a good idea. As we all know, these vis-
its are often not frequent enough to catch most preventable con-
ditions. Please make an appointment with your Local Dentist, or
call Glades Dental, Drs. Hausy and Weiland at 863-983-6347 for
more information.

up their activity a little bit to see
if they could persuade manage-

Mr. Ewart. Last Friday's rally was
not a strike, workers assured.
Rather than walking off the job
until a resolution is reached, the
approximately 80 employees
reportedly affected by the stall

to demonstrate during their off-

gested the county look at setting
limits on the number of animals
people can have on property
there. Mr. Perez said the shelter
is legally operating in Montura,
but it is harboring over 100 dogs.
Because these dogs are being
brought in from no-kill shelters
outside the state, he said the facil-

local residents and the noise from
the dogs presents a problem for
its neighbors.
He was also concerned about

you want to do in a situation
like this," said Mr. Ewart, at the
question of a strike. "For a lot of
these folks, they can be making
more money in other jobs, but
for many of them, it's also a labor
of love," he said. Most of them
are unwilling to compromise the
health of their patients, the vice
president said.

mutually agreeable terms will be

Officials there also pointed to
the fact that services to patients
will not be disrupted in any way
throughout the negotiation pe-

forward to the end of the demon-
strations and the signing of a new
contract, if everything works as
they intend it to. "I hope so," said
Mr. Ewart, who joined the work-
