Leaders say
increased local pres-
ence is. necessary.

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLIWISTON -- If one thing
was certain during Tuesday
night's emergency meeting,
it was that local cities feel as
though they don't have a say in
what will happen to the econo-
mies they depend on to survive.
Going forward, leaders re-
peatedly asked to have a bigger


role in all discussions revolving
around the sale of U.S. Sugar to
the state of Florida -- a move that
continues worrying residents
who are uncertain of a Hendry
County economy without its big-
gest financial engine.
The meeting at the John Boy
Auditorium was attended by the
cities of Clewiston and LaBelle,
and Hendry County commis-
sioners. Representatives from
the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District, including Carol
Wehle, executive director, were
on-hand to provide some an-
swers.


Almost immediately, leaders
made it clear that they are con-
cerned, and that perhaps the
state shares a responsibility to
ensure that the area will not be
negatively impacted.
"All these discussions, we are
not at that table and we need a
seat on that table," argued Mali
Chamness, Clewiston mayor.
"We are not opposed to the
floodway, we're very concerned
with what happens to the econ-
omy of Hendry County," said
Kevin McCarthy, county com-
missioner.
Ms. Wehle agreed.


"We need to start talking
about economic development.
We don't need to wait," she said.
"These communities affected
need io have a seat at that table.
We support your looking at that
vision, leading that plan."
The response seemed to in-
dicate the district's hope that
the future will not be shaped
by them, a water management
agency, but by residents in Hen-
dry and Palm Beach counties.
She did address more press-
ing concerns, however.
Ms. Wehle assured the au-
dience that the district has no

Officials wish town a Happy Fourth


Residents asked to
follow precautions
to ensure safety

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- America
celebrates another birthday to-
morrow and with it, residents
get ready to show off their pa-
triotism with flashy displays of
light and sound.
Clewiston is no different,
and, unlike other cities, fire-
works are not banned locally.
Law enforcement officials en-
courage citizens to be careful


around fireworks, but assure
that they will be ready if things
get out of hand.
Lighting fireworks has tbe-
come synonymous with the
Fourth of July. Large cities like
New York and Miami make it
a point to broadcast their dis-
plays on national TV, but many
smaller towns get in on the fun
as well.
The city of Clewiston has
made it a tradition of providing
a fireworks show every year,
and the final preparations are
being made today in time for
tomorrow's display.
Leading up to it, officials
hope that residents will be care-


ful when setting off their own
fireworks. They place fireworks
into two categories: ground
fireworks and aerial fireworks.
Ground fireworks -- in other
words fireworks that do not
shoot off or fire projectiles -- are
allowed, while aerial fireworks,
such as Roman candles, are
strictly prohibited.
"Safety is our number one
concern," said Kristine Peters-
en, Clewiston assistant chief of
police. "We want everyone to
have a good time. That means
no fireworks that shoot up in
the air, none of that."

plans whatsoever of putting U.S.
Sugar's mills out of production --
and in actuality the district could
not afford to purchase the facility
outright.
"The offer to us was all or
nothing (for the land). We don't
need all of the land," said Ms.
Wehle, who estimates that the
district will use approximately
120,000 acres of the 187,000 acre
land deal.
According to her, the district's
. hope is that another company
within the industry will come

CLEWISTON -- A few short hours
er a fire was called in to the Clewis-
Fire Department, Sonny's Real Pit
-B-Que, a popular lunchtime eat-
was just a memory.
Crews were still on site, hosing
vn the few flames that were left,
king their way carefully through
building and a crane lifted fire
hters above the building to survey
damage.
According to Edwin Langford, as-
ant fire chief, the call came in at 6
n. on Monday that a fire had been
)tted at the restaurant.
When the crews arrived, the struc-
e was fully engulfed and after ex-
guishing the hot spots, officials re-
ted the building a total loss.
The state fire marshal's office re-
>nded soon thereafter, and while
y couldn't release much informa-
n regarding how the fire started, Mr.
igford believes the fire may have
Sinated at the northeast end of the
hiding.
'The roof collapsed and everything
de burned up," said Mr. Langford.
Fortunately, no one was inside the
Hiding at the time of the fire. '
A line of Sonny's former employ-
stood nearby, some of them won-
ing .what they were going to do
v that their jobs had literally gone
in flames.
Sergio Filion, a six-year employee
he restaurant, was surprised when
heard the news. The front end
nager and waiter was one of the
t to arrive and reported that the fire

Notes of change; Seven good times, having vision


The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I came into Church one morn-
ing and a young boy was crying
his eyes out under a staircase.
I knew him and his family; his
father had just gotten a job, a pro-
motion to another school where
he was to be principal.
The school was a "plum"- a
real promotion, only it meant
moving away.
This was the town where my
young acquaintance had grown
up, where he had his friends,
where he knew everyone and all
of the streets, and where he was
at home.
Now, this was all to be taken
away and there he sat, sobbing
and sobbing.
I looked at him. I knew how
he felt.
The memories came back to
me when we moved away for the
first time.
We moved from my school,
our extended family, friends, ev-
erything that was familiar, and
went to live in Miami.


I was a bit younger than the
young guy that I found that morn-
ing under the stairs; but I could
reassure him that it was going to
be all right.
What seemed like a "great
change" came, but I made new
friends, had new experiences,
learned new things, and found
that in a "new and strange place"
life could be very good indeed.
We've all heard about the land
sale that is proposed in Clewis-
ton.
Apparently, things aren't going
to be like they used to be.
Without the "business-as-
usual" (literally and figuratively!),
many of the things taken for
granted just might not be there.
In the midst of all of my think-
ing about it, there came echoes of
a Biblical story.
It was about Joseph.
It came when I read in the an-
nouncement that there would be
"seven more harvests of cane"..
and then there was the story in
Genesis about Joseph interpret-
ing Pharaoh's dream (Genesis 4).
'...seven heads of grain, full and
good...seven other heads, with-


ered and thin (v.22)."
Pharaoh is concerned about
what it all means and one of his
chiefs remembered that Joseph is
good at interpreting things..
The message from Joseph to
Pharaoh was to collect food dur-
ing the food times to prepare for
the times to come (v.35).
If there is something to be
learned about "redeeming the
time", it is to make use of the time
given.
My "gift" when my family
moved was to realize that things
didn't come to an end even when
everything seemed turned upside
down and things as I knew them
were to be left behind.
That could be shared many
years later when a young boy was
going through what I had gone
through years before.
My vision of "the horrors of
change" was revised.
Many of the things I counted
on being always there would be
far away; many of the familiar
people and parts of my life that
gave a sense of security now
would be changed.
I learned, though, that all of


my visions would include more
people and things than I could
have ever imagined, that some
doors would close but others
would open, that I would get to
explore many facets of life that I
didn't even know existed.
My visions had expanded and
with the change came another
sense of security; that I could ex-
ist, and work, and do well in new
places with new people and new
experiences, and even love it all
and thrive where I had found my-
self.
Proverbs (29:18) tells us
"Where there is no vision, the
people perish."
I've found that the things that
have changed my life, even things
I didn't want or didn't plan on
having happen, have given me a
new vision.
I've learned to plan along the
way, during "the seven good
years" to tide me over when
things are unknown.
What is our vision for the fu-
ture?
Proverbs tells us that "where
there is no vision, the people per-
ish" but the verse goes on.


Our country America, you've got to love it


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Our nation is 232 years old this
year, and we have the freedom,
among other things, to poke fun
at ourselves and our country!
We are living in a world today
where lemonade is made from
artificial flavors and furniture pol-
ish is made from.real lemons.
Here are some "real lemon"
statements we can smile at be-
cause of the element of truth they
contain!
America, you've got to love it!
Only in America can a pizza get
to your house faster than an am-
bulance.
Only in America do drugstores
make the sick walk all the way to
the back of the store to" get their
prescriptions, while healthy peo-
ple can buy cigarettes at the front.
Only in America do people order
double cheeseburgers, large fries
and a Diet Coke.
Only in America do we leave
cars worth thousands of dollars in


the driveway and put our junk in
the garage.
Only in America do we buy
hot dogs in packages of ten and
buns in packages of eight.
232 years of existence to de-
velop such freedoms seems like a
lot of time, but compared to other
nations, we are just a child.
And yet we stand tall among
these countries because of the
principles on which we were es-
tablished: "We hold these truths
to be self-evident, that all men
are created equal, that they are
endowed by their Creator with
certain inalienable Rights, that
among these are Life, Liberty, and
the pursuit of Happiness." - Dec-
laration of Independence.
Other contributions: "Do
not let anyone claim tribute of
American patriotism if they even
attempt to remove religion from
politics." - George Washington.
"We have been assured, Sir, in
the Sacred Writings, that 'except
the Lord build the House, they la-


bor in vain that build it.' I firmly
believe this; and I also believe
that without His concurring aid
we shall succeed in this political
building no better than the Build-
ers of Babel."- Benjamin Frank-
lin.
"Sure I wave the American
flag. Do you know a better, flag to
wave? Sure I love my country with
all her faults. I'm not ashamed of
that, never have been, never will
* be."- John Wayne.
"Every generation of Ameri-
cans needs to know that freedom
consists not in doing what we like,
but in having the right to do what
we ought." - Pope John Paul II.
I celebrate today with you the
freedoms which God has blessed
this great nations of ours.
But with freedom comes re-
sponsibility, and with responsibil-
ity, outreach.
Recall the inscription on the
Statue of Liberty: "Give me your
tired, your poor, your huddled
masses yearning to breathe free,


the wretched refuse of your teem-
ing shore, Send these, the home-
less, tempest-tossed, to me; I
lift my lamp beside the golden
door." '
An old rabbi once asked his
pupils how they could tell when
the night had ended and the day
had begun.
"Could it be," asked one stu-
dent, "when you can. see an
animal in the distance and tell
whether it's a sheep or a dog?"
"No," answered the rabbi.
Another asked, "Is it when you
can look at a tree in the distance
and tell whether it's a fig tree or a
peach tree?"
"No," answered the rabbi.
"Then when is it?" the pupils
demanded.
"It is when you can look on
the face of any person and see
that it is your sister and brother,
because if you cannot see this, it
is still night."
Let's let freedom light our
days!


It adds that "he that keepeth
the law, happy is he."
Being faithful, working to
have a vision, not being afraid of
change but planning ahead and
preparing for it with what God
has entrusted to us during the
present; all of these things should
stand us in good stead.
In fact, I think I've already


been doing these things for quite
a while in my life.
The Lord has taken us through
in the past; He will continue to be:
with us.
Many of the things that seem;
fearful may also be gifts to us; if,
we use them wisely and make:
use of the present opportunities.

June 11, 2008 - Agriculture
Secretary Ed Schafer announced
farmer and rancher candidate
nominations begin June 15 for
local Farm Service Agency (FSA)
county committees.
The nomination period contin-
ues through August 1, 2008. Elec-
tions take place this fall.
"I encourage all producers to
participate in the county commit-
tee election process by nominat-
ing candidates by the August 1
deadline," said Schafer.
I "We are counting on as much
participation as possible, because
county committees are an impor-
tant link between the farm com-
munity and the U.S. Department


of Agriculture. We have seen a
trend in recent years of increased
nominations of minority and
women producers and we hope
that will continue."
To be eligible to serve on an
FSA county committee, a person
must participate or cooperate in a
program administered by FSA, be
eligible to vote in a county com-
mittee election and reside in the
local administrative area in which
the person is a candidate.
Producers may also nominate
themselves, and organizations
representing minority and women
may also nominate candidates.
To become a nominee, eligible
individuals must sign form FSA-
669A.
The form and other valuable
information about FSA county
committee elections are available
online at: http://www.fsa.usda.
gov; click on News and Events,


then County Committee Elec-
tions.
Nomination forms for the 2008
election must be postmarked or
received in the local USDA Ser-
vice Center by close of business
on August 1, 2008.
FSA county committee mem-
bers make decisions on disas-
ter and conservation programs,
emergency programs, commod-
ity price support loan programs
and other important agricultural
issues.
Members serve three-year
terms.
Nationwide, there are more
than 7,800 farmers and ranchers
serving on' FSA county commit-
tees.
Committees consist of three to
five members who are elected by
eligible local producers.
FSAwill mail ballots to produc-
ers beginning November 3.


The voted ballots are due back
to the local county office either via
mail or in person by December 1.
Newly elected committee
members and alternates take of-
fice January 1,2009.
Between 2003 ,and 2006, the
number of minority and women
farmers and ranchers nominated
as candidates to FSA county com-
mittees nationwide increased 35
percent.
Additionally, the number of Af-
rican American producers nomi-
nated as candidates tripled during
the same period.

Veteran nurse celebrates 40 years


BELLE GLADE-In a career that
has spanned 40 years, Patty Hood
has always wanted to make a dif-
ference by providing quality care
to her patients. As the Director
of Pediatrics/Medical Surgery at
Glades General Hospital (GGH),
she supervises a staff of 24 nurs-
es, including L.P.N.s, R.N.s, and
C.N.A.s, she is responsible for
schedules, nurse staffing hours,
payroll, evaluation, and continu-
ing education. Ms. Hood also
oversees daily care of GGH pa-
tients. Her most rewarding role is
the working relationship she has
with all levels of staff in the hos-
pital in what she calls "'a culture
of caring."
Ms. Hood began her career
at GGH in 1966 as a high school
student working in the medi-
cal records department. During
nursing school in Panama City,
she returned to work at GGH ev-
ery summer and also instituted a
candy striper program. On June
29, 1968, Ms. Hood began her
full-time nursing career at Glades
General. Over the last four de-
cades she has served as a nurse in
every department of the hospital.
From delivering babies to coping
with family tragedy and crisis, Ms.
Hood has experienced all aspects
of nursing during her tenure.
Ms. Hood is truly dedicated
to her profession. "This is one of
the only professions that you can
have a direct impact on some-
one's life," said Ms. Hood. "It's
been my blessing that I've been


able to create 40 years of relation-
ships and treat the grandchildren
of former patients." Ms. Hood has
been recognized by the health-
care community for her genuine
care for others-both patients
and staff. In 2007 she received
the Palm Healthcare Foundation
Nursing Distinction Awards Extra
Mile Award, which recognizes a
nurse who fosters professional
growth in others and serves the
community as a mentor or vol-
unteer.
Mary Weeks, GGH's .Chief
Nursing Officer has seen the ef-
fect Patty has on her patients.
"When Patty walks into a room,
people immediately feel cared
for and valued," said Ms. Weeks.
"She exemplifies the kind of care
and compassion Glades General
is known for, and will continue to
provide once we move into our
new hospital."
The new $73 million regional
hospital in the Glades is scheduled
to open in early 2010. The Health
Care District of Palm Beach Coun-
ty has committed $50 million
toward the modern healthcare
facility which will feature 70 sin-
gle-occupancy inpatient rooms,
a large ER with 16 treatment ar-
eas, an onsite helipad for rapid
transport by the Health Care Dis-
trict's Trauma Hawk emergency
helicopters, and advanced tech-
nologies to promote safety and
efficiencies. Glades Healthcare
Foundation is leading the capital
campaign to raise the remaining

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?

Let'us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your editor.

tax knowing the money was be-
ing used to build the 42,000 mile
interstate highway system.
'In 1991, Congress declared the
highway system completed, but
the tax lived on and on, growing
bigger and bigger.
No longer needing to build the
interstate, the current 18.4 cents
per gallon federal gas tax - double
what it was in 1990 - now funds a
"highway trust fund" shell game
that shifts more than $2 billion a
year, and control over highways,
from Florida to Washington.
Here is how Florida motorists
would be better served by con-
vincing Congress to repeal the
obsolete federal gas tax and re-
turning control over highways to
state and local governments.
State Control Road building
is historically a responsibility of
state and local officials who are
in a better position than Uncle
Sam to determine the transpor-
tation needs of their motorists.
But, as long as Washington holds
the purse strings, Florida and the
other states will be denied control
over their own affairs.
If lawmakers in Tallahassee


could decide how much of the
current federal tax should be
added onto the state's own 15.6
cents per gallon tax, the unified
state gas tax could then be raised
and lowered to reflect Florida's,
not Washington's, transportation
priorities.
Misallocation of funds. Com-
pared to Washington, most states
do a better job ensuring their gas
taxes are actually used for high-
way improvements. Of the $2.1
billion state gas tax revenues col-
lected by Florida in 2006, all but
$13 million was used for state
and local roads - a far better track
records than Uncle Sam's. Ac-
cording to Ronald Utt, a senior
research fellow at the Heritage
Foundation, each year Washing-
ton doles out more than one third
of its gas tax revenues for non
highway projects such as air qual-
ity, traffic congestion, bicycle path
projects and thousands of home-
town park projects sponsored by
members of Congress.
Higher costs. Cycling the fed-
eral gas tax collected in Florida
to Washington and then back to
Florida also adds costly federal la-
bor, environmental and other reg-
ulations.- expensive hoops state
road builders must jump through
to get their money. And don't for-
get that hundreds of millions of
federal gas tax dollars are wasted
each year funding bureaucracies


in Washington that duplicate the
work of state highway bureaus.
Special interest clout. Central-
izing in one place the $33 billion
in federal gas tax revenues flow-
ing into Washington each year
makes it easy for interest groups
and lobbyists to concentrate their
efforts and sway members of Con-
gress to send money their way. If
that $33 billion was instead spent
by 50 separate state legislatures,
more money would go directly
to serving the motorists who paid
the taxes. It would be far more
difficult for greedy interest groups
and lobbyists to rip off money in
the 50 state capitals, one state at
a time.
In Washington, right off the
top, 2.86 cents per gallon in gas
tax revenues goes to mass transit
projects. And perhaps the most
outrageous raid on the federal gas
tax occurred in the mid 1990's,
when 6.8 cents per gallong was
siphoned off to pay down the fed-
eral budget deficit.
How much is enough? Back in
2003 the American Road Builders
Association lobbied Congress to
raise the gas tax by 12 cents per
gallon. Then, in December 2007,
the National Surface Transporta-
tion Policy and Revenue Study
Commission, a creature of the
U.S. Congress, recommended
that the federal gas tax "...be in-
creased from five to eight cents


per gallon per year over the
next five. years..." Each one cent
increase .in the federal gas tax
would, nationally, send another
$1.9 billion to Washington.
As gasoline prices go up, simi-
lar efforts to raise the federal gas,
tax for the benefit of Washington
based groups, not Florida mo-
torists, might go up too. As high
gas prices cause Americans to
cut back on their use of gasoline,
federal gas tax revenues will fall.
This, in turn, could create added
pressure to raise the tax just to
keep the money flowing into
Washington.
What to do? Senator James
Inhofe (R-Oklahoma), in 2003 of-
fered a bill in Congress to return
all but two cents (to cover federal
maintenance responsibilities). of
the. 18.4 cent federal gas tax to
the states. The bill, he said, would
"restore to states and local com-
munities the ability to make their
own transportation decisions
without the interference of Wash-
ington."
Florida motorists don't need a
federal gas tax holiday this sum-
mer, as suggested by some would
be presidents. They need the ob-
solete federal tax repealed and
control over highways returned
to state and local officials.
Sincerely,
Ronald Fraser, Ph.D


Letters to the Editor


As a Clewiston and Belle Glade
businessman and a Belle Glade
City Commissioner and a lifelong
resident of this area, the eventual
closing of U.S. Sugar really hits
close to home for me and my fam-
ily. In the past three years, we have
already lost a lot of good friends
and business acquaintances due
to layoffs from U. S. Sugar in Belle
Glade, Pahokee and Clewiston.
That devastation of layoffs will be
nothing compared to the effect
that the complete closure of such
a large company will have in the
communities where it's presence


has meant so much for so many.
From what I understand, they will
continue to operate for another
six year period. At least this will
give people here a little time to
prepare for their future.
I guess what irritates me the
most is that once again the en-
'ird6nmentalists have claimed
yet another victory which will
take away from the livelihood of
many. people and families at the
expense of the taxpayers of the
State of Florida.
I am an avid hunter and fisher-
man so the environment is very


important to me but at what cost?
We cannot drill for oil off our
coastline and now our farmers
are being bought out by the state.
You would think that the taxpay-
ers of our state should have a vote
on whether they would want to
spend a tremendous amount of
1.7 BILLION dollars to buy out
this company., for the so called
sake of the environment.
The environmentalists see U.S.
Sugar as the greedy sugar barons
that destroy the Everglades and
pollute the lake. Whether that has
ever been proven or.not, I don't


know. What I do know is that the
employees of U.S. Sugar are hard
working people who are trying to
make an honest living and raise
their families with dignity. So,
while the environmentalists are
starting their celebration and pop-
ping the cork on their champaign
bottles, remember the 1,700 plus
employees and their families and
ask yourself this question, "who'll
be next?" It just might be you.

The city of Clewiston: the town that sugar built


By Jeff Klinkenberg
St. Petersburg Times
CLEWISTON - Anita Griffin is
proud of her chicken, moist on the
inside, crisp on the outside and
'never greasy. Griffin - everyone
calls her Miss Anita - is a classic
Southern cook who learned from
her mother, raised a brood of
children and ended up in homey
.Clewiston, where she opened Di-
' xie Chicken & Seafood.
She's a tiny woman of 73,
with white hair and apple cheeks.
Sometimes after closing, folks tap
on the glass, hoping for one more
drumstick or a peek at her shrine
to Elvis Presley.
"I feed a lot of people," she
said, wiping the counter for the
umpteenth time.
Now more than ever, the citi-
zens of Clewiston need comfort
food from Miss Anita.
* The ultimate company town,
Clewiston is losing its company.
U.S. Sugar, which began grow-
ing sugarcane in .1931, plans to
sell its 187,000 acres and assets to
"the state as part of an Everglades
restoration plan. The company,
which employs 1,700 people
- most of them in this town of
7,000 - is going to shut down in
six years.
Everything is about to change.
And nobody knows if life will
change for the better or for the
worse.
"This was a slap in the face*to
the whole town," Miss Anita said.
S"Who is going to buy my chicken,
my collards, my German choco-
late cake?"
To some in the outside world,
the industry known as "Big Sug-
ar" was a corporate villain that ex-
ploited poor workers and dumped
pollution in the Everglades. But if
you lived in Clewiston, in one of
the little pretty neighborhoods off
Sugarland Highway, it was differ-
ent.
U.S. Sugar made life possible.
It built Cane Field Stadium for the
high school, Candy Cane Park
.for the toddlers. It gave money
to Clewiston Public Library,
sponsored the Sugar Festival and
funded the Harlem Academy, the
day care facility in the black com-

mnunity. It gave Ernestine I larris, a
35-year employee, a scholarship
so she could learn the day care
business.
Your daddy worked for U.S.
Sugar, or your uncle, spouse, son
or daughter. U.S. Sugar donated
money to send your kids to col-
lege. Some kids never came back,
but many did, and they got jobs
at U.S. Sugar and spent their pay-
checks at True-Value Hardware,
Wal-Mart and Miss Anita's chick-
en restaurant.
They bought wrigglers from
Charlie's Worms to fish for speck-
led perch in Lake Okeechobee,
Valentine's Day flowers at Clewis-
ton Florist, a six-pack at Suzy B.
Liquors.
If you needed to talk to the
mayor, Mali Chamness would
listen sympathetically. Her folks
were sugar people.
SOn Wednesday, a deacon
tweaked the sign in front of First
Baptist Church of Clewiston, pro-
moting next Sunday's sermon:
"A word for the anxious, angry
and fearful."
For six months beginning
each fall, workers streamed into
the fields surrounding Clewiston
and lit fires to burn dead leaves

away from the cane stalks before
the harvest. Smoke billowed and
floated toward West Palm Beach
or Fort Myers and inevitably pro-
voked complaints about that aw-
ful sweet smell.
"It smelled like money to us. It
meant tradition. Our way of life,"
said Christa Hill, 48, who worked
for U.S. Sugar for 30 years, man-
aging its charming hotel, the
Clewiston Inn, located next to
corporate headquarters. "Yes, it
smells. Yes, the soot gets on your
clothes. The soot gets on your car.
So you wash it off. Life goes on."
Her husband, a farmer at U.S.
Sugar for more than three de-
cades, will lose his job in the near
future. The company plans to pay
severance to its employees, and
many will cash in stock they own.
"We're looking at our options,
but we don't know what we'll
do," Hill said.
"I want to stay. I love this town.
But I have to say we're still in,
shock. We never thought this day
was going to happen. We had a
lot of smart people at U.S. Sugar
who cbuld solve any problem.
The company was always going
to be there for us."

and Resort on Lake Okeechobee,
manager Ramon Iglesias had an-
other view.
"I think it might be a change
for the better," he said. "U.S.
Sugar helped our town, but also
controlled everything in town and
kept other businesses out. This
will be an opportunity for new
business and development."
In recent years, regulatory
pressures and competition have
made business tougher for Big
Sugar. Layoffs at U.S. Sugar Corp.
began about a decade ago. The
company reduced its work force.
by 40 percent.
Butch Wilson, 57, got the ax
in October. He had started small,


worked himself up the chain, to
a computer expert. Even the big
shots knew him.
He was stunned to learn about
his lack of importance to a com-
pany to which he had given 32
years.
Now he is the director of the
little Clewiston History Museum.
It is filled with 79 years of sugar
artifacts, .pieces of machines,
photographs of machete-wield-
ing men harvesting cane, and his
memories.
"We were a great company,"
he said. "Look at me. I still say
'we.' When I think of U.S. Sugar,
I don't think about the company
that laid me off. I think about


the company that allowed me
to live in a small town and edu-
cate my children. They gave my
kids scholarships to college. Two
of my kids got master's degrees.
Isn't that something?"
He got up from his desk, the
one covered with artifacts, and
walked over to lock the front
door.
"I don't know what's hap-
pened to America," he said. "But
I do think what's happening in
Clewiston is the shadow that is
falling over all pf America. All the
homegrown businesses are dis-
appearing.
"All of us are worried. Some-
thing has gone way wrong."

I was born March 21, 1931 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. My
parents, now deceased, are Amos and Lillian Adarns.
I met Ted in Palatka. Hc came to live in Crabtree's
boarding house. I was teaching school and living
there also (YOIT\, Sarah the cook, a natural born
n ltch maker, had us seated together for meals
So and we quickly became good friends. (Lucky
iie). In honor of Sarawe named our yellow
VW for her. We married at the Presbyterian
Church in Palatka in 1956 and enjoyed 52
happy years (not nearly enough). Ted and I
have two sons both married to fine wives.

"My problem started on June 12. I had
symptoms of a stroke. Ted took me to the
emergency room at Glades General. after an

"very large and old blood clot on my brain. I was

told that in older people sometimes "issues" made a

there were -issues". Five days after the operation (which in
itself was a success) Ted asked that treatment be ceased. (Living wills do pay off sometimes.) The
doctors agreed that more treatment would be futile. So it was off to Hospice.

Fundraising for new





hospital is restructured


WEST PALM BEACH-To more ef-
ficiently achieve the mission of raising
funds for the construction of the new
$73 million dollar regional hospital
in the Glades, the Glades Healthcare
Foundation is being restructured in an
effort to effect greater efficiencies and
cost savings. Since it was formed by
the Health Care District of Palm Beach
County in October 2006, the not-for-
profit Foundation has promoted im-
proved access to healthcare in the
Glades and has secured numerous
gifts, grants and philanthropic pledg-
es. In February, the Palm Healthcare
Foundation provided a generous gift
of $1 million to support the Palm
Healthcare Center for Better Nutrition.
This center will be a centerpiece at the
new regional hospital by providing
high nutritional meals to aid patients
in their recovery and will serve as a
community destination for healthy
eating and nutrition education. Many
other gifts have been received from
individuals as well as businesses
throughout Palm Beach County, with
total pledges of nearly $2 million.
While there has been success in
the campaign, the downturn in the
economy has made fundraising more
challenging. In order to reduce ad-
ministrative overhead and maximize
the dollars going towards the cause,
I


a restructure has become necessary.
Some of the notable changes include
a reduction in Foundation staff and
consulting expenses.
"The Glades Healthcare Founda-
tion plays an essential role in, sup-
porting the development of the new
regional hospital. The Foundation will
continue its mission while it explores
alternatives to most cost-effectively
accomplish its campaign goals," said
C. David Goodlett, Chair of the Glades
Healthcare Foundation and Health
Care District Board member. "The
Foundation continues to benefit from
outstanding leadership on the Foun-
dation Board and our campaign lead-
ership team. I am personally grateful
for all of the support, time and dedica-
tion these individuals have provided."
The new hospital is a reality and
construction is progressing at a rapid
rate. The steel superstructure is al-
ready in place and reinforced concrete
walls are being installed to protect the
hospital from hurricanes. The Health
Care District has committed $50 mil-
lion toward the 70-bed hospital and
medical campus, making it the largest
capital project in the District's 19-year
history. The new hospital, centrally lo-
cated at the southwest corner of Main
Street and Hooker Highway, is sched-
uled to open in early 2010.


Once completed, the hospital will
feature 70 private patient rooms with
additional family-friendly consultation
rooms. The Emergency Room will
have 16 treatment areas and six pri-
vate rooms in the Critical Care Unit.
A helipad will allow for rapid trans-
port by the District's Trauma Hawk
emergency helicopters. In addition,
the campus will offer ample parking
facilities, a Palm Tran bus stop, and
space for future facilities, such as
medical office buildings. The project
is being led by the Health Care Dis-
trict's Senior Development Executive,
Michael J. Gates, who continues to
ensure that the project stays on time
and on budget.
"The Foundation's activities are
important and I applaud the Founda-
tion Board's action to lower costs dur-
ing these times," said Jonathan Satter,
Health Care District Board Chair. "By
better utilizing current resources, the
campaign will continue advancing
additional gifts from individuals, busi-
nesses and organizations. Together,
we have our eye on the ball and will
deliver the hospital needed in the
community."

County health care district





gains national recognition


SANTA FE, N.M.-At the annual
conference of the National Associa-
tion of Public Hospitals (NAPH) to-
day, the Health Care District of Palm
Beach County's Vita Health cover-
age program received recognition at
the organization's annual Safety Net
awards ceremony in Santa Fe. The
NAPH awards program recognizes
public hospitals and health systems
that deliver exemplary service and
results in a variety of areas. The Vita
Health program was recognized in
the category of Community Engage-
ment. As noted in the award an-
nouncement, the Health Care District
has more than doubled the member-
ship of the affordable health cover-
age program in less than a year as a
direct result of a multi-channel public
awareness campaign.
Commenting on the award, Health
Care District's Chief Executive Officer,
Dwight D. Chenette, MBA, MPH said:
"Covering the uninsured is an increas-
ingly challenging problem nation-
wide. In Palm Beach County about 20
percent of our residents lack health
insurance. As a tax-funded safety-
net health care system with a long-
standing commitment to providing
uninsured residents access to health
coverage, the Health Care District
launched Vita Health in 2006 as an
affordable, shared-cost program de-
signed to meet the needs particularly
of lower-income workers who are not
eligible for programs like Medicaid
but who can't afford private health
insurance."
Vita Health provides inpatient acute
care, emergency room services, out-
patient surgery, diagnostic services,
primary care services, specialty physi-
cian services, and prescription drugs.
To be eligible, residents must be be-
tween the ages of 1 and 65, uninsured
during the preceding six months, and
meet certain income requirements.
The monthly premiums range from
$25 to $100 per individual with co-
payments as low as $5 per office visit.


The District funds approximately two-
thirds of the monthly premium.
In July 2007 the District com-
menced a community engagement
campaign with the goal of doubling
Vita Health membership. Multiple
channels and media were used: direct
mail, print ads in different languages,
bus decals, posters in medical offices
and drug stores, informational dis-
plays in shopping malls and stores,
and tables at health fairs. Since the
campaign began, Vita Health mmber-
ship has more than doubled.
Ms. Debi Gavras, Core Operations
Officer of the Health Care District who
oversees its Managed Care programs,
including Vita Health, adds: "In the
period since we submitted the ap-
plication for the award, the Florida
State Legislature has approved rais-
ing the ceiling of income eligibility
from 200 to 300 percent of the Fed-
eral Poverty Line for programs like
Vita Health. That means many more
Palm Beach County residents poten-
tially may qualify. We intend to con-
tinue our community and business
engagement efforts unabated, so we
can give even more residents peace of
mind and a medical home, and in so
doing we will help reduce the current
high levels of uncompensated care,
emergency room overcrowding, and
more expensive care due to delayed
access."
In Palm Beach County, health care
providers absorb substantial costs
for uninsured patients who present
for care. Vita Health members visit
an ER at a lower rate (12/1000 mem-
bers) compared to the Medicaid HMO
population in the county (38/1000
members). The program also encour-
ages timely preventive care. A recent
Florida health insurance study found
that half of the uninsured either de-
lay or simply don't get needed medi-
cal care, due to lack of coverage and
cost. Nine of the top ten reasons Vita
Health members visited their primary
care physicians were related to pre-


ventive care services.
Health Care District Board Chair
Jonathan Satter noted: "Providing so-
lutions for the uninsured is a complex
challenge and one that the Health
Care District has made a priority for
more than fifteen years. Early in its ex-
istence, the District structured a free
health coverage program called Coor-
dinated Care that helps approximately
30,000 residents who are not eligible
for Medicaid and whose income is be-
low 150 percent of the Federal Poverty
Level. However, the number of unin-
sured continues to increase, particu-
larly at income levels exceeding eli-
gibility requirements for Coordinated
Care. More than half of the uninsured
in Florida report that they have been
without coverage for longer than a
year, and nearly one in five say they
never have had coverage. The primary
reason why people go without health
insurance is the cost. To give them an
affordable option the Health Care Dis-
trict launched Vita Health. The major-
ity of those who are eligible for this
program are either self-employed or
employed part-time."
The Health Care District funds
or administers health coverage for
SCHIP, Medicaid, and several health
initiatives designed for targeted
populations. The District spends ap-
proximately $85 million a year on
delivering health coverage solutions
in Palm Beach County. In addition to
these managed care programs, the
Health Care District serves the com-
munity through other core programs,
including a maternity program, a
rural public hospital, a nationally ac-
claimed Trauma System, a network
of pharmacies, a rehabilitation and
skilled-nursing center, and clinics
with a dedicated nurse in more than
170 public schools.

Take steps to prevent identity theft


By Tabitha Trent, Branch
Manager/Vice President
Riverside National Bank
Everywhere you turn these days
there are ads and offers for identity
theft protection. And no wonder. Last
year the Federal Trade Commission
(FTC) reported that it received more
complaints of identity theft than any
other crime. The FTC estimates there
are 8.3 million identity theft victims in
the United States every year, losing an
average of $500 each.
So, should you spend $12, $15 or
more per month to protect yourself
from the frustration and financial loss
associated with this crime?
You can protect yourself.
Identity theft generally follows some
predictable patterns - many of which
you can protect yourself from.
Pattern: Phishing
Protection: Although phishing
emails get a lot of publicity, these
scams can also take place via email
or in person. A simple rule of thumb:
no credible financial or government
institution will ever ask you for your
personal information. If anyone claim-
ing to be a credit card company, bank,
or store asks for your account number,
password, social security number, date
of birth or other personal information,
just say no.
Pattern: Mail theft
Protection: You may be surprised
how much personal information pass-
es through the mail. Credit card offers,


bank statements, and invoices all con-
tain potentially exploitable information.
To protect yourself, take these steps:
*Prevent dumpster diving by shred-
ding documents before throwing them
away. The same goes for credit card of-
fers and courtesy checks.
* Know when to expect monthly
financial statements and follow up if
they do not arrive. Thieves steal state-
ments or divert them to other locations
by filing a change of address without
your knowledge. Make sure your bank
confirms all address changes before
mailing your statement.
Pattern: Electronic theft
Protection: Methods for stealing
electronic data both online and from
your home computer are growing in-
creasingly sophisticated.
*When shopping online use pro-
tected sites and avoid easy to guess
passwords like your date of birth or
phone number.
*Make sure no one overhears or
sees you enter your password, and
never write your password on your
debit card or checkbook.
* Use firewalls and anti-spyware
and anti-virus software to protect your
computer.
Pattern: Physical theft
Protection: Yes, thieves still steal
wallets and purses. Think twice about
carrying sensitive personal documents
with you. Leave social security cards,
birth certificates and passports at home
whenever possible. Use a locking file


for sensitive information - especially if
you have roommates or service people
around. Keep a record of all ID and
credit card numbers along with the
company contact number so you can
report the loss quickly in the event of
theft.
Monitor your information and set
up protections.
Instead of paying for a credit moni-
toring service, get in the habit of check-
ing your statements carefully when
you receive them - or sign up to review
them online. You can also request a
free credit report at www.annualcred-
itreport.com.
Work with your bank to set up pro-
tocols for establishing your identity
before sharing information, and be pa-
tient if your bank asks you identifying
questions - they are trying to protect
you.
If you think you may be a victim of
identity theft, contact the Federal Trade
Commission Identity Theft Hotline
at 1-877-ID-THEFT (438-4338). You
should also contact the Fraud Depart-
ment of the major credit bureaus and
ask them to flag your file and contact
you regarding any future activity.
Taking these precautions may add
some short-term inconvenience to
your banking, but will protect you and
your good credit in the end.

information about banking, Tabitha
Trent call be reached at 863-824-0400,

land acquisition move forward


WEST PALM BEACH - The
Governing Board of the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) took the next step
for bringing about one of the
largest environmental land ac-
quisitions in Florida's history. The
governing Board unanimously
ratified the "Statement of Princi-
ples" that was signed with United
states Sugar Corporation and wit-
nessed by Governor Charlie Crist
last week to bring vast tracts of
land in the Everglades Agricultural
Area into public ownership.
The formal action authorizes
District staff to now initiate de-
tailed negotiations and due dili-
prence to purchase the assets of
united States Sugar Corporation,
including 187,000 acres of land,
for Everglades restoration. Acqui-
sition of the property will provide
the'"missing link" needed to pro-
tect Florida's coastal estuaries and
better revive, restore and preserve
one of America's greatest national
treasures-the Everglades.
"Governor Crist's bold vision
has brought us to a new day for
Everglades restoration," said Eric
Buermann, SFWMD Governing
Board Chair. "This is a significant
moment for our state, our nation
and our environment. Today's
ratification confirms the District's
commitment to this remarkable
opportunity for protecting and re-
storing America s Everglades and
Florida's coastal estuaries."
In accordance with the frame-
work and parameters outlined in
the Statement of Principles, de-
tailed and confidential purchase
agreement negotiations will now
begin, and could last for up to 75

days. At the same time, indepen-
dent real estate appraisals and as-
sessments of the identified lands
and assets will be conducted by.
highly-qualified specialists. The
ultimate purchase price and
agreement will depend upon the
appraisals and assessments and
will require approval by the Dis-
trict's Governing Board.
The proposed agreement be-
tween the South Florida Water
Management District and the
United States Sugar Corporation
involves the public purchase of
nearly 300 square miles spanning
four counties in South Florida. The
land would be used to reestablish
a part of the historic connection
between Lake Okeechobee and
America's Everglades through a
managed system of storage and
treatment. "The District and our
partners have made excellent
progress in .environmental resto-
ration during the past decade, but
this acquisition creates possibili-
ties we never thought possible,"
said SFWMD Executive Director
Carol Ann Wehle. "We look for-
ward to working closely with the
local communities and our stake-
holders as we turn this landmark
concept into a working reality."
Benefits from the Everglades
land acquisition include:
� Increases in water storage to
reduce harmful freshwater dis-
charges from Lake Okeechobee
to Florida's coastal rivers and es-
tuaries.
. Improvements in the deliv-
ery of cleaner water to the Ever-
glades.
I Preventing thousands of tons
of phosphorus from entering the


Everglades.
* Eliminating the need for
"back-pumping" water into Lake
Okeechobee.
� Relieving some pressures on
the Herbert Hoover Dike while
the federal government carries
out repairs.
* Sustainable agriculture and
green energy production.
As part of the proposed acqui-
sition, United States Sugar Cor-
poration, over the next six years,
will retain the right to farm and
manage the land consistent with
its previous business practices
and fulfill remaining business
obligations. The District, together
with the Governor's Office of
Tourism, Trade and Economic
Development, will work closely
with communities surrounding
the Everglades Agricultural Area
on an economic transition as the
negotiations move forward.
"As we work through these ne-
gotiations, it is imperative that we
keep the communities most af-
fected by this purchase engaged
and involved," said the SFWMD
Governing Board Chair. "This
'Governing Board is committed
to working with its state and lo-
cal partners to realize not only the
environmental benefits of this po-
tential purchase but also the new
economic opportunities associ-
ated with sustained agriculture,
green energy production and res-
toration."

One of the major no-nos,. ac-
cording to the assistant chief, is
firing a gun into the sky in cel-
ebration. Needless to say, doing
'so in a residential neighborhood
is highly illegal.

gonna shut it down, but we're
also not gonna run it."
Still, residents remained con-
cerned.
Describing his shock at the
news of the purchase, Carl Berner,
a local business owner, addressed
the officials at the meeting.
"It was like I got a phone call
that my parents had died," Mr.
Berner said. "The mill is not going


firing their guns in public. The
assistant chief hopes that people
will be smarter than that, but
said that the department will not
hesitate in making arrests if it be-
comes necessary.
This year, the city of Clewiston
is hosting a fireworks display at
Sugarland Park. The show should
begin at approximately 9 p.m.
and run anywhere between 20 to
25 minutes.
Residents wanting to see the
show are encouraged to find their
spots at the park, or anywhere


to shut down? That's no guaran-
tee." Mr. Berner argued for trans-
parency in all future discussions.
"I'm a little more concerned
than relieved," said Anthony
Perez. "Just on rough numbers,
I don't see where the Clewiston
mill can stay viable taking 120,000
acres out of the mix."
District officials agreed to meet
with leaders in Hendry County
and Clewiston in the next two


that the show can be seen. The
fairgrounds at Aztec is a popular
spot for catching the display.
As for herself, yes, Ms. Peters-
en will be joining in on the fun
-- but you won't catch her setting
off any roman candles.
"I will have sparklers," the of-
ficial said., "My grandchildren will

AARP celebrates



50th birthday


On July 1, AARP, the associa-
tion for Americans age 50 +, cel-
ebrates its own 50th birthday. In
the last half-century, AARP has
grown from a collection of jn-
dex cards on a California kitchen
table to the nation's largest non-
profit membership association,
with more than 39 million mem-
bers.
AARP was founded by Dr. Eth-
el Percy Andrus, the first Califor-
nia female high-school principal
and a leading educator. Moved
by the plight of retired California
teachers who were barely surviv-
ing with no or very small pen-
sion benefits, Andrus founded
the National Retired Teachers
Association. Eleven years later,
she founded AARP, which was
dedicated to promoting inde-
pendence, dignity and purpose
for mid-life and older Americans.
Fifty years later, the association's
goals remain the same.
AARP is not only working
with the 50+ generation but all
generations to ,create positive
change on topics such as afford-


able healthcare and financial se-
curity. Recently, AARP has joined
with national business and labor
groups to create the.Divided We
Fail movement (www.dividedwe-
fail.org ) to help Americans im-
prove access to affordable health
care and to create better tools to
achieve lifetime financial secu-
rity. To break through Washing-
ton gridlock and spur action, the
movement is collecting pledges
from Divided We Fail voters, col-
lecting Americans' true-life sto-
ries about financial security and
health care, waging an intensive
national advertising and political
action campaign, and reaching
out to ordinary Americans.
Today AARP is building on
past successes and creating new
legacies for the future. AARP's vi-
sion is a society in which where
all are able to grow older with
dignity, choice and purpose,
reaching to fulfill their goals and
dreams. AARP is looking forward
to another 50 years of distinction,
excitement, and positive change.


Everglades Foundation: Massive land acquisition


"Priceless, Breat
taking opportunity to
save River of Grass"

WEST PALM BEACH-The EV-
erglades Foundation, the nation's
leading Everglades advocacy and
science organization called a
plan to purchase 187,000 acres of
strategically located agricultural
land for Everglades restoration
an achievement of "breathtaking
significance and priceless value."
The foundation declared the plan
"a once-in-a-generation oppor-
tunity that will move Everglades
restoration forward beyond all
expectations" and lauded Gov.
Charlie Crist for his "bold action
that will ensure the sustainability
of the Everglades and affected es-
tuaries."
At the direction of Gov. Crist,
the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District announced it will
negotiate the purchase of 187,000


acres - an area more than twice
the size of Orlando from U.S.
Sugar Corporation, then swap
and consolidate lands into large
tracts, dedicating the land to Ev-
erglades restoration. Everglades
Foundation scientists say this has
the dual benefit of protecting the
St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee es-
tuaries from damaging freshwa-
ter releases while providing an
enormous supply of clean water,
the lifeblood of the Everglades,
to sustain those fragile wetlands
during droughts. Moreover, it will
allow the District to expand the
manmade marshes that clean up
water flowing into Lake Okeecho-
bee and into the Everglades.
"The significance of this cannot
be overstated," said Everglades
Foundation Senior Scientist Dr.
Tom Van Lent. "This acquisition
will provide -the land needed to
construct a reliable water supply
for the Everglades- much faster
and at a lower cost than previ-
ously envisioned. It will allow us


to eliminate about 85 percent of
the damaging releases to the St.
Lucie and Caloosahatchee, and it
will do so decades earlier than we
thought possible."
After more than 15 years of
public advocacy and frequent
policy battles with the sugar in-
dustry, the announcement united
longtime adversaries behind a
common purpose.
"This is 'truly a historic mo-
ment in the life of the Everglades,
when bitter adversaries united to
support an unprecedented and
unexpected good. Unthinkable
progress'is now possible, and all
in our lifetimes," said Everglades
Foundation Chief Executive Of-
ficer Kirk Fordham. "This is a
moment for the record books, a
priceless gift for the generations
that will follow us."
The Everglades, which origi-
nally comprised 4,000 square
miles, now is less than half that
size. The population' of 2 million
wading birds that once inhabited


the region is down to 10 percent
of its original size. Marjory Stone-
man Douglas' celebrated "River of
Grass" is home to 67 threatened
or endangered, species, whose
survival will be greatly aided by
the massive addition of land and
clean water.
"America's River of Grass sus-
tains life for so much and so many.
Today it receives its lifeline," said
Everglades Foundation Vice Chair
and President of the Everglades
Trust Mary Barley. "A restored and
sustained Everglades is no longer
a dream. History will record this
action as the point that brought it
within our reach."
The additional storage that
this land purchase makes pos-
sible will correct one of the major
problems in the Everglades: cur-
rently, drainage and water diver-
sions cause the Everglades to dry
up too often, preventing fish and
other essential elements of the
Everglades food web from surviv-
ing. Wildfires are too frequent.


Peat soils formed over thousands
of years are lost in an afternoon.
This land acquisition will make it
possible to provide water during
droughts, which will protect tree
islands and increase fish popula-
tions, sustaining larger wading
bird populations, more alligators
and other unique flora and fauna
in the Everglades.
Furthermore, water used to
sustain the Everglades during
droughts will be the same water
now flushed out to the Atlantic
Ocean and Gulf of Mexico dur-
ing wet years, causing massive
damage to the St. Lucie and Ca-
loosahatchee estuaries along the
way. These releases from Lake
Okeechobee cover oyster beds
with layers of muck, kill estua-
rine plants and animals that can-
not tolerate prolonged exposure
to freshwater and cause algae
blooms that deplete the water of
vital oxygen, release tQxins and
block sunlight. This land acquisi-
tion will allow Florida to protect


estuaries decades sooner and
build projects at a scale large
enough to make a tremendous
difference.
The Everglades Foundation,
Inc. is a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit,
charitable organization dedicated
to advancing an understanding of
the Greater Everglades Ecosystem
and its irreplaceable environmen-
tal and economic value. Since
1993, the Everglades Foundation
has been doing its part to help
environmental organizations de-
velop the staff and tools neces-
sary to tackle Everglades restora-
tion challenges. The Everglades
Foundation works to protect the
Everglades through environmen-
tal leadership, scientific expertise,
and policy experience.
