Carl Berner of Berner Oil
weighed in on the issue.
He said the county needs to
"think outside the box and use
the resources' that we already
have." He said, "Let's be repre-
sentative to the citizens of Florida
with their tax dollars."
Berner believes that with the
economy as bad as it is, every-
one should "re-think how we
spend money" and pay for only
what is absolutely necessary.
McCarthy replied, "I can't do
anything without a permit."
"I don't care what they [the


county] do with it, as long as
they iuse it," proclaims Lisa Pick-
ron of the Hendry County Fair
Board Committee.
"It originally belonged to us
as far back as 1966 when the
sub-office property was donated
doe Hen ry Ctounty wth the un-
was not b ing used it would re-
vert back to us "
Pickron says if they are going
to use the building for the sub-
office, "fine, but we would like

lition of the sub-office building
two months ago, the board voted
to reject the bids and decide later
what to do with the building.
Commissioner Kevin IilcCa-
rthy defends this decision to a
fiery constituent.
"Your answer is to go in, ig-
nore the laws of Florida and put
$50,000 into that building and
remodel it which we can't do
because we cant get a permit,"
McCarthly said,
"If I didn't have professional
opinions from [licensed indi-
viduals] ... I would agree that we


could go in a remodel that build-
ing."
As the member of the audi-
ence disagreed, cutting him off,
McCarthy continued.
"I don't think we ought to
take that' money and throw, it
into a building that isn't worth it.
We should take that money and
put it a building that is going to
meet current building codes and
is going to do what we need for
the residents of Hendry County."
The constituent argued that
the architect the county used is
not a sufficient Architect.

Twelve girls participated in this year's Miss Sugar Pageant, held over the weekend at the John Boy Auditorium'


bags filled the space under the
Banyan trees just behind the
library.
Proud of the 8130 a.m. turn-
out, McCorvey, smiling, said,
"Last year we started out in the
Youth Center.
This year we started out here
because it was so crowded at
the Youth Center and this seems
to worked out a little .better."
She says, "People can browse
around and [enjoy themselves]
under the trees."
Ms. McCorvey briefly de-
scribes the day's operation.
"We~had a lot of teams sign
up and those teams will go out
to their designated assignments
with their maps in the city to go


out and clean up. Permitting
we have enough teams, we
usually clean up the North and
the South of town."
The teams, including the
Clewiston Cub Scouts, the city
commissioners, and the Ameri-
can Red Cross, just to name a
few, cleaned up~ along U.S. 27
Sand other more visible areas in
the city to prepare for the up-
coming Sugar Festival.
By 10 a.m. teams were dis-
bursed, the trucks were lined
up, and the cleanup was un-
derway.
It was a colorful display of
teamwork as matching red,

pulling, to name a few fundamen-
tal skills. With those basics intact,
combined with proper condition-
ing, Coach Crawford believes that
the flag football program could be
good enough to compete in state
tournaments in the future.
Ray Hamilton, the first-year
offensive coach, knows what it
takes to win a flag football cham-
pionship, as he won six city flag
football championships in his
hometown of Tampa.
With the feeling that flag foot-
ball doesn't get the same attention
as track and field, Coach Ham-
ilton wants the program to be
established as one that would at-
tract girls who normally wouldn't
come out for spring sports.
Here are some athletes to look
out for this season:
Freshman LaQuosha
Wright is a wide receiver
and linebacker who is
considered a great athlete
who can catch and pull
flags with the best girls in
flag football.
Freshmen Karenza Harvey
(middle linebacker) and
Wilnesha Jones (rusher)
are both team captains,
who are described as an
aggressive players who
display coverage abil-
ity, with Karenza calling
all the plays for their de-
fense.
The Lady Blue Devils
competed against Royal
Palm Beach on Tuesday
'and Glades Central yes-
terday.
But if you couldn't see
those games, you could

Devils' remaining games,

"Winning, plus the current
assembly of girls gaining experi-
ence, could possibly improve the
image of the program," Coach
Hamilton said.

GLADES Football is currently
springing ahead, but right now,
the girls are taking center stage.
Got that, boys?
Flag football, a girls spring
sport, is a refreshing option for
those who don't want to run
tr~ck, play softball or join the
tennis team. It's also a chance to
show how tough the girls can ac-
tually be.
For both the Pahokee Lady
Blue Devils and Glades Central
Lady Raiders, who squared off
for competition last Wednesday
evening in Pahokee, they would
rather be playing tackle football.
But the rules of the game won't
allow it,
So both teams are relegated to
playing football in a more finesse-
styled fashion, which could be
why both teams have losing re-
cords right now.
But, really, even if their records
or score margins don't show it,
both teams play hard to the whis-
tle and just leave it all out on the
field.

Lady Raiders moving
ahead
Samuel Curry, a first-year
coach, considers the program's
2008 season a great bonding ex-
perience. Though they have a
1-3 record as of March 31 they
defeated Okeechobee but lost
to Royal Palm Beach, Welling-
ton and Seminole Ridge once
you actually see this team play
a game, you'll see that this team
has meshed together nicely'
which will likely bode well for
next season.
"This team is young, talented
and has a great future ahead of
them," Coach Curry said. "The
girls stick together regardless
of the circumstances. If they're
down in a game, they always
go full speed ahead, no matter
what."
For instance, Rodkeshia Joiner,
a junior quarterback and safety,
led the Lady Raiders to a couple
of first downs on their opening
drive against Royal Palm Beach in
their March 27, contest at Effie C.
Grear Field.
Though the drive stalled, Rod-
keshia played tenacious defense
throughout the game and snared
an interception in the second
half, which put them in position
to notch their second win.
Though the Lady Raiders
wound up on the losing end,
23-9, they grew from the experi-
ence, realizing that its important

To say the least, it has not been
an easy season for Pahokee's fla8
football team.
The Lady Blue Devils are in a
tough predicament this season as


efitted most of their opponents,
which are from the coast, accord-
ing to Brian Crawford, the second-
year defensive coach.
"We're an inexperienced team
that has had some bad breaks in
games this season," Coach Craw-
ford said. "The team plays strong
at the end of games. Our problem
is that we get nervous at the be-
ginning at games, but if we come
out confident early, we can com-
pete with any team."

smokeless tobacco contains 28
cancer-causing chemicals and
three times the nicotine as ciga-

Once in the past 30 days. The To-

partnership with the -Floridla De-
partment of Education is targeting
these youth through the distribu-
tion of an anti-tobacco PSA on the
Florida Knowledge Network po-
tentially reaching 600,000 middle
school students. The message is
presented by teens and includes
the short- and long-term effects
ofsmo ing, te costhts of the habit,
and that you don't have to smoke
to fit in.
For additional information on
the Tobacco Free Florida cam-
paign, contact Pam Schultetus at

The Tobacco Free Florida
Campaign is- aggressively target-
ing the approximately 1.5 million
youth ages 11 to 17 with the cam-
paign's cigarette and smokteless
Tobacco prevention message. The
campaign's comprehensive ap-
proach includes youth-focused
ads, in-school PSAs, a custom
limited edition Justice League
comic book, and online initiatives
such as downloadable Smoke-
Free Songs, campaign sites on
Facebook and MySpace and a
YouTube video contest.
Recognizing the resurgence
of comic book popularity among
youth, the campaign has part-
nered with DC Comics the larg-
est English language publisher of
comic books in the world with
the "No Smoke Without Fire"


custom comic book featuring the
Justice League Super Hero team
of Superman, Batman, Robin,
Wonder Woman, The Flash and
Green Lantern. DC Comics" most
popular characters battle cigarette
smoke-generating machines and
empower youth to avoid the dan-
gers of the deadly habit. Comic
books will be distributed to mid-
dle school students across Florida
and featured on the Tobacco Free
Florida website (www.tobaccof-
reeflorida.com). On Free Comic
Book Day (May 3), participating
comic book stores across Flor-
ida will offer free copies of "No
Smoke Without Fire" to youth
and parents.
Teens are among the top
Internet users who engage in
online chats, e-mail and discus-


sion forums. The Tobacco Free
Florida campaign created profile
pages for the two largest social
networks on the web Face-
bookc and MySpace. These social
networking websites, which
are twice as likely to be popular
among smokers ages 18-24, give
users the opportunity to affiliate
themselves with the Tobacco Free
Florida campaign by becoming
a "fan" (Facebook) or a "friend"
(MySpace), post their comments
and connect with others who are
campaign fans and friends. After
only a few weeks, the Facebook
site has accumulated more than
4,000 fans.
Since more than half of on-
line teens download music,
the campaign created Smoke-
Free Songs, which provides free


downloadable songs from non-
smoking Florida bands includ-
ing Maida Vale, Sarah Mac Band,
The Twelfth Chapter, Jonny Diaz
and Paul Clayton. Newv songs will
be continuously added to www.

The campaign has also part-
nered with YouTube to sponsor
the YouCare video contest where
entrants share wh~y they don't

to vote for their favorite submis-
sion and the top 50 videos will be

of the interventions. By utilizing

In 2006, VAP prevention be-
came a National Safety Goal

mission of Health. GGH's com-

best care. By eliminating VAP's,
Glades General has decreased
mortality rates and reduced
costly length of stay in the ICU
and the hospital. In 2008 to
date, GGH has maintained a 0
percent VAP rate.
Donald M. Berwick, MD, MPP'
the President and CEO of the In-
stitute for Healthcare Improve-
ment (181) in Cambridge, Mass.
commented that "The achieve-
ment at GGH of a VAP rate of 0
percent for the whole of 2007 is
superb work. I cannot overstate
how much it helps 1HI, our mis-
sion, and hospitals all over the
nation to have examples like
this to draw on. GGH's continu-
ing leadership across the whole
frontier of patient care quality
and safety adds hope and con-
fidence about what is possible
for us all."

tors. These monitors commu-
nicate with the ventilators and
provide vital information to the
therapist and physician, en-
abling them to reduce the time
on the ventilator by accurately
monitoring epeatien selabilityht
own. This information that was
previously only available from
an invasive central line cath-
eter inserted into the heart but
is now available non-invasively'
without harm or trauma to the
ventilated patient. The combi-
painm t utilizing sinnovat w
ventilators and the use of bed-
side clinical monitoring helped
Glades General to achieve the
elimination of VAP. Glades Gen-
eral is the only acute-care hospi-
tal in Palm Beach County with
the non-evasive cardiac output
monitoring system.
The rates can be attributed
to the institution of the "VAP
bundle," which is a set of in-
terventions specifically for the
prevention of VAP and is seen
as the key to the hospital's ac~
complishment. These interven-
tions include: preventing blood
pooling and clotting (usually the
legs) in a patient who is immo.
bile; preventing production of
excess stomach acid; keeping
the head of the patient's bled el-
evated at an angle of 30 degrees
or more, which decreases the
chance of aspiration and allows
more natural blood perfusion
and gas diffusion of the lungs;
and defining periods where se.
dation is turned off or reduced

must receive mechanical venti-
lation for conditions other than
pneumonia. According to the
National Healthcare Safety Net-

for Professionals in Infection
Control, the national VAP aver-
age is 4.2 percent.
According to Erin Etheridge,
RN, BSN, the Infection Control
practitioner at GGH, "The staff's
dedication to safety protocols
strongly contributed to the elim-

overall infection rates. These
statistics are proof of the con-
tinued commitment to infection
prevention in our hospital," said
Ms. Etheridge.
A ventilator is used when a
patient can no longer breathe
on his own or when he cannot
breath quickly or deeply enough
to maintain life-sustaining blood
oxygen levels. Glades General
is dedicated to obtaining newer,
safer and more efficient teichnol-

a role in the elimination of VAP

sowing, reaping, toiling, spinning,
or the length of their FaceBook
profile. Jesus is not Dr. Phil giv-
ing us a prescription for how to
avoid anxiety. His main point is:
"Strive first for the kingdom of
God and His righteousness, and
all these things will be given to
you as well.
None of this is to say that we
won't have some normal worries.
We can't love someone without
worrying about threats to his or
her well-being. We can't be sen-
sitive persons without occasional
concern that we haven't done all
we should. We can't listen to the
news without some uneasiness
about the direction many things
in the world appear to be going.
But we can be focused enough
on the things of God that we're
able to relax about our priorities
and have confidence in God's
providential care. That's wh~y, in-
stead of wringing our hands in
despair, we clasp our hands in
prayer.


pessimlistic in the worries we face
every day. Ifwe stop totLhinklabout
it, miost of us don't live our dlays in
anxiety over how global warming
will affect u~s or' fret about hlow or
when the world will end. Most of
our concerns are over more per-
sonal issues such as, "Wilil I get
a good report from the doctor?"
"Will my kids stay out of trouble?"
"Am 1 being a good parent?'" "Will
I be able to pay my bills?"
"Can any of us by worrying
add a single hour to our span of
life?" The question is as timely to-
day as when Jesus posed it over
2,000 years ago (Matthew 6:24).
Does worrying do us any good?
Lord knows, we've put huge
amounts of time and energy into
worrying about all sorts of things
that might happen, most of which
never actually come to pass. Hay-
ing burned through all that anxi-
ety what do we have to show
for it? Have we, as Jesus asked,
added even a single hour to our
lives? Probably we've taken away
hours.


By Pastor John Hicks
]First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
It all began back in the mid-
60~s when some 7,000 students at
the University of North Carolila
at Chapel Hill took the Minnesota
Multiphasic Personality Inventory,
a test that, among other things,
measured the participants' ten-
dency to be optimistic or pessi-
mistic. Of that group, 1,630 were
found by the test to be clearly pes-
simists and 923 to be clearly op-
timists.. The rest fell somewhere
in the middle. Over the next four
decades, 476 of those who had
taken the test died, from causes
ranging from accident to illness to
suicide to homicide.
By tracking and collating all
this information, researchers-de-
termined that the pessimists had
a significantly greater likelihood
of dying sooner from any cause
than did the optimists.
While many of us are not pes-
simists by inclination, we can be


TIhinke backt to the study mnen-
tioned above. The study's con-
clusion suggests that Jesus was
right. But even more, it reveals a
surprising f-lip side to that argu-
ment, suggesting that not being a
chronic worrier can add not only
an hour, but perhaps even years
to a lifespan.
When Jesus posed this ques-
tion about adding to our span
through worry, He went on to
make clear that what He was call-
ing for was for us to trust God. He
pointed to the birds that do not
sow or reap the fields but are fed
by our heavenly Father. He point-
ed to the flowers that do not toil
or spin but are clothed in beauty
as well by our heavenly Father.
It's important to understand
that His words were directed to
people who still had to sow, reap,
toil and to spin. Jesus wasn't
telling them to stop doing those
tasks; He simply wanted them to
understand that their live's were
a lot more than the sum of their


and a comment about something
easier followed. There was a cer-
tain amount of the "heat of the
day" to be borne on the way to
the ministry, and ever afterward;
they were "entitled" to a ministry
but it might not be as it looked. To
be entitled to what others seem to
have also requires some bearing
the "heat of the day" and then we
can sit back and enjoy the fruits of
our labors with everyone's bless-
ings. One of the neighborhoods
where I lived was served by a
large chain store. The store was
closed one day by management
because of too much loss and
"disappearance" of stock. People
who relied on the store being in
their neighborhood were hurt; es-
pecially those with transportation
problems. The employees who
worked there were now out of a
job.
Others were left without a
source for the brand names and
specialproducts that the store
sold. Those who felt a special en-
titlement to the goods to be found
unguarded in the store ultimately
short-changed themselves and a
lot of other people along the way.
Management,.out of frustration,
found it easier: to.clo'se the store
-and that's what they did.
In reality, we have very few
"entitlements" what comes from
God is really a trust to be used


wisely. If someone feels angry,
if they feel that they have some-
how been cheated, I'd suggest
they look at what they have been
given and what they really need.
The rules, the commandments
.we have been given are not there
to spoil life but to make it pos-
sible for all of us to live together.
Those who bore the heat of the
day agreed on a wage that must
have been a living wage at the
time and capable of meeting their
needs; otherwise they would not
have signed on.
There are always people who
earn more, have more, seem to .
do less work, live more luxurious-
ly. The opportunities for all to de-
velop their God-given potentials,
to apply themselves, to make use
of resources available are still out
there for us all.
Taking short-cuts can lead to
complications, unforeseen prob-
lems, trouble not thought about.
The one that is "entitled" to do
what He wants with His own is
the Lord. When people decide
that the know better, they're
heading for pro~lblemss. .,He doe~s-
what He wants ;; ah His own b~i:t
all are blessed by Him; each in his
own way. He's "entitled" to do
that-and thanks be to God for it!


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
St.Martin's Church,
Clewiston
At a recent meeting, two city
leaders spoke about regional
problems-
One of them had to do with an
age-old problem-stealing. All too
often it's useless to ask somebody
"Why did you do that?" when
they are caught doing something
that is wrong. Sometimes, they
don't know themselves and to
try go get an answer when a per-
son doesn't know it is a waste of
time.
Maybe there are some indica-
tors out there that deserve our
consideration. The old parable,
two thousand years old now,
about the laborers in the vine-
yard (Matthew 20:1ff) is about a
householder who goes out and
seeks laborers. He finds them and
they agree to work for a certain
amount. There is still work to be
done, so he goes out later and
hires others, making the same
agreement about paying them.
When the day is almost over, he
hires the last of his crew; same
iA agreement. When it's time to pay
everyone at the end of the day,
they are all given equal wages.
This leads to grumbling and
complaining; they were all paid


even if some had borne the heat
of the day and others worked only
an hour. They complain about the
"inequality" of the system, but
the householder reminds them of
their agreement and tells them as
well "Am I not allowed to do what
1 choose with what belongs to
me? Or do you begrudge my gen-
erosity? (Matthew 20:15)." In our
times, I see what must be some
feelings of "entitlement" when
people try to level the playing field
in their eyes by immoral or illegal
actions. Many of our businesses
have to hire extra personnel to
deal with retail theft. I wonder
what makes people think they are
entitled to take things from stores
without paying for them?
Is it because they feel others
have more advantages and they
have been somehow deprived? Is
it because something is lacking in
their lives and they will make up
for their felt shortcomings by at-
tacking others who they think can
afford the loss? I had someone
.tell me once that I had an "easy
and fun" job and "I'd like t~o do
what you do." I told the person
that they could also share in my
life it might not be as "easy" or
"fun" as thought, but if they felt a
call, were willing to go to college
and then seminary, and wished
to enter a ministry, it could be
theirs. The response was "Oh...!

Conservation Month in Flor-
ida
South Florida's dry season
begins in November and ends
with the start of the wet season,
typically in June. One of the year's
driest months is April, which his-
torically averages only 2.5 inches
of rain District-wide. ~Next week,
the SFWMD Governing Board
will consider a resolution declar-
ing April as Water Conservation
Month in Florida.
'April is the ideal time to
heighten water use awareness,
Wehle said. "We must create a
long-term culture of conservation
to protect South Flonida's limited
water resources, not only in Apn!l
but evearch onth of theak dears

was driving south on S.R. 700 af-
ter entering the intersection with
a green traffic light, officials said.
Officials with th~e highway pa-
trol concluded that the minivan
driver failed to stop for a red light
as she entered the intersection.
The front end of the minivan
crashed into the left side of the
dump truck, according to the
highway patrol.
The victim, a 31-year-old
Clewiston resident, was listed as
being in serious condition but the
injuries were not life-threatening,
according to Tim Frith, the lieu-
tenant of the highway patrol..
'"When you see any type of
vehicle in a collision with a dump
truck, obviously the smaller ve-
hicle will absorb the most energy
and damage," Lt. Frith explained.


Michael R. Ar~ena, the district
battalion chief of the Palm Beach
County Fire Rescue, said that the
fire rescue crews had to cut the
victim- out of her minivan. Chief
Arena explained how the rescue
crews proceeded with the han-
dling of the accident.
"The front end of her minivan
was severely damaged, sp we
had to cut the~ top of the minivan,
which took us about 45 minutes,"
Chief Arena said. "The victim lost
a great deal of blood, so we had
to get her to the hospital as fast as
we could."
The victim was flown via trau-
ma hawk to St. Mary's Hospital,
where she was undergoing sur-
gery. '
"When someone sees that
a rooftop was cut off from a ve-


hicle, it's alarming because most
people think that the victim either
suffered from severe injuries or
was killed in the crash," Lt. Frith
said.
The victim's two-year-old
daughter was also involved in
the minivan collision, but she suf-
fered no injuries.
"Thank God her child was se-
cured properly in a child-restrain-
ing device," Lt. Frith said.
The 2-year-old was transport-
ed to Palms West Hospital, where
she was taken in for observation.
The driver of the dump truck
also suffered no injuries in the
collision.

The local Cub Scout 667 post prepared for clean up on Saturday morning during the city's
Spring Cleaning event. .


The recent, much-needed rain-
fall is considered a rarity during
the current La Nifia conditions. La
Nifia is a strong weather anomaly
in the equatorial Pacific that al-
most always signals below aver-
age rainfall for Florida in April.
Because of La Nifia conditions,
all official long-term climatic fore-
casts continue to call for below-
average rainfall for the region,
Groundwater and surface wa-
ter levels across most of the Dis-
trict have responded favorably
'to the moderate gains from Feb-
ruary, March and early April rain
events. Groundwater levels are in
good shape and are higher now
than this time last year, with the
exception of a few wells in Lee
and Collier counties that remain
low. Water levels in the Kissim-
mee River are at their regulation,
or optimum, 'levels and higher


than this time last year.
Water levels in the three Ever-
glades Water Conservation Areas
in western Palm Beach, Broward
and Miami-Dade counties are
near or above their regulation, or
optimum, levels for this time of
year and nearly a foot higher than
this time last year.
At 10.32 feet above sea level
this morning, Lake Okeechobee
levels have risen three-quarters
of an inch over the past week
and are expected to continue
this upward trend. However, ley-
els remain about four feet below
the historical average for this time
of year. Lake Okeechobee is the
source of water for 500,000 acres
of farmland in the Everglades Ag
ricultural Area and serves as a pri-
mary backup supply to more than
five million South Floridians.
SReminder: April is Water


WEST PALM BEACH-The
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) announced
that in March the region received
above-average rainfall for the
second month in a row. Rain-
fall in both February and March
has helped improve surface and
groundwater levels in most areas
of the District's 16 counties. South
Florida remains in a regional wa-
ter shortage, however, and con-
tinues to recover from. a multi-
year rainfall deficit. Landscape
irrigation restrictions remain in
place. "These two wet months
have brought much-needed re-
lief to our two-year dty spell,"
said SFWMD Executive Director
Carol Ann Wehle. "The rainfall-
combined with proactive water
management and Florida's citi-
zens, farms and businesses doing
their part to conserve water- has


helped improve water resource
conditions."
District-wide March rainfall av-
eraged 3.35 inches, slightly higher
(about one-third inch) than the
historical average for the month.
February rainfall averaged 2.99
inches, about an inch higher than
the historical average. Early April
also saw above-average rainfall
District-wide, with 0.50 inches
recorded in three days, or about
one-quarter inch above average.
Since the start of the dry season
in November, Distri~ct meteorolo-
gists have recorded an average of
9.79 inches of rain District-wide.
While this is only 79 percent of
the historical average, or a deficit
of 2.55 inches, it is a significant
improvement over this same pe-
riod last year, when an average
of only 6 inches of rain fell across
the District, or 50 percent of the


historical average.
In some areas. of the District,
dry season rainfall is now close
to historical averages as a result
of the February and March rains.
Hendry County through western
Palm Beach County and eastern
Broward County received over
90 percent of that region's his-
torical average. The District's four
northernmost basins--Upper
Kissimmee, Lower Kissimmee,
Okeechobee and Martin/St. Lucie
County basins--received 66-76
percent of historical rainfall aver-
age since November. The basin
along Florida's southwest coast
(Lee and Collier counties) re-
ceived 70 percent of the historical
average.
