released highly anticipated grad-
ing scores for all Florida schools
on Tuesday, with the Hendry
County School District receiving<
an overall "B" grade this year.


The district-wide grade is a
marked improvement from last
year's results and represents the
average performance of all Hen-
dry County schools.
While some schools showed
a slight decline in score, there
were a number of schools, most
notably in LaBelle, that per-
formed better than in previous
years.
TIo 'A' schools dropped down
in grade, while the department
; 9f education reports that scores
'r four area schools remained


unchanged from last year.

Schools showing
improvement:

of sparks that lit the ground and streets
nearby.
At approximately 9 p.m., the city of
Clewiston shot fireworks, and crowds
gathered nearby. The sparks and lights
could be seen clearly across the city.
The show lasted about 20 minutes and
most dispersed to continue lighting their
fireworks at home.
The Hendry County Sheriff's Office
reported a disturbance in LaBelle and a
number of people were arrested.
In Clewiston, however, no major inci-
dents were reported by police and resi-
dents enjoyed their holiday weekend.

$7.59?

Cost of McArthur
milk shoots up
considerably
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- As fuel pric-
es, feed prices and the general
economy take a turn for the
worst, milk prices have risen tre-
mendously.
There is no better example
of that than at the U-Save Super-
market in Clewiston, where a
gallon of the McArthur brand of
milk sells for $7.59 -- a sobering
testament for how food prices
are, and will continue to be, af-
fected by the recent economic
downturn facing the nation.
"Seven dollars?" asked Jim
Wright, president of the South-
east Milk Co-op, an organization
which represents the majority
of dairy farmers in the state of
Florida. "That's probably a near-
record. Maybe it is a record."

Production costs
increase
From their perspective, farm-
ers like Mr. Wright say there are
three looming issues driving the
cost of milk upwards: a weak
dollar, the cost of corn and the
cost of fuel.
Corn prices have risen and,
with them, so have milk prices.
Much of the corn-based feed that
farmers require to feed cows -- a
figure that traditionally repre-
sented half of all milk produc-
tion costs -- has doubled over in
price.
See McArthur - Page 20

The price of a gallon of McAr-
thur milk at the Clewiston

Celebration without major
incidents
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Sitting in the nearby
baseball fields, with a clear view of the
fireworks show, a father held his daughter
close to him so she could get an eyeful of
the elaborate display.
Hours earlier, folks exited grocery
stores carting the last of the available fire-
works bundles, their shopping carts offer-
ing all the essentials of a proper Fourth of
July celebration: hot dogs, ground chuck,


charcoal, buns and soda.
The smell of the barbecues lasted well
into the night, and a drive through town
revealed wide-eyed kids being helped to
light their fireworks by wider-eyed par-
ents.
In America's Sweetest Town, some
businesses placed patriotic decorations
throughout and residents said goodbye
with a "Happy Fourth to you."
A drive through the city seemed to sug-
gest that, at least on this day, ages disap-
pear, and the sound of children laughing
in awe is often echoed by an older adult's.
Roman candles are not allowed in the city,
but more than a fair share of them were
shot into the dark, revealing a rainbow

Vita Health Program recognized at Safety Net Awards


Submitted to INI
Debi Gavras, left, Core Operations Officer of the Palm Beach County Health Care District,
and Dwight Chenette, chief executive officer, were proud to announce recognition of the suc-
cess of the Vita Health Program.


SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO,
June 26,2008 -At the annual con-
ference of the National Associa-
tion of Public Hospitals (NAPH)
today, the Health Care District of
Palm Beach County's Vita Health
coverage program received rec-
ognition at the organization's an-
nual Safety Net awards ceremony
in Santa Fe.
The NAPH awards program
recognizes public hospitals and
health systems that deliver exem-
plary service and results in a vari-
ety of areas.
The Vita Health program was
recognized in the category of
Community Engagement.
As noted in the award an-
nouncement, the Health Care
District has more than doubled
the membership of the affordable
health coverage program in less
than a year as a direct result of a
multi-channel public awareness
campaign.
Commenting on the award,
-Heath-Care District's Chief Exec-


utive Officer, Dwight D. Chenette,
MBA, MPH said: "Covering the
uninsured is an increasingly chal-
lenging problem nationwide. In
Palm Beach County about twen-
ty 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 designed
to meet the needs particularly
of lower-income workers who
are not eligible for programs like
Medicaid but who can't afford pri-
vate health insurance."
Vita Health provides inpatient
acute care, emergency room ser-
vices, outpatient surgery, diagnos-
tic services, primary care services,
specialty physician services, and
prescription drugs.
To be eligible, residents must
be between the ages of 1 and 65,
uninsured during the preceding


six months, and meet certain in-
come requirements.
The monthly premiums range
from $25 to $100 per individual
with co-payments as low as $5
per office visit.
The District funds approxi-
mately two-thirds of the monthly
premium.
In July 2007 the District com-
menced a community engage-
ment campaign with the goal of
doubling Vita Health member-
ship.
Multiple channels and media
were used: direct mail, print ads
in different languages, bus de-
cals, posters in medical offices
and drug stores, informational
displays in shopping malls and
stores, and tables at health fairs.
Since the campaign began,
Vita Health membership has
more than doubled.
Ms. Debi Gavras, Core Opera-
tions Officer of the Health Care
District who oversees its Managed
Care programs, including Vita


Health, adds: "In the period since
we submitted the applicatio.'r for
the award, the Florida Mlate ~qg-.
islature has approved raisingrthe
ceiling of income elnibilitv frorn
200 to 300 percent of the Federal
Poverty Line for programs like
Vita Health.
That means many more Palm
Beach County residents poten-
tially may qualify.
We intend to continue ;our
community and business engage-
ment 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 uncom-
pensated care, emergency room
overcrowding, and more expen-
sive 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 encourages
timely preventive care.
A recent Florida health insur-
ance study found that half of the
uninsured either delay or simply
don't get needed medical care,
due to lack of coverage and cost.
Nine of the top ten reasons
Vita Health members visited their
primary care physicians were re-
lated to preventive care services.
Health Care District Board
Chair Jonathan Satter noted:
"Providing solutions for the unin-
sured is a complex challenge and
one that the Health Care District
has made a priority for more than
fifteen years.
Early in its existence, the Dis-
trict structured a free health cov-
erage program called Coordinat-
ed Care that helps approximately
30,000 residents who are not eli-
gible for Medicaid and whose in-
come is below 150 percent of the
Federal Poverty Level.

All arrangements were entrust-
ed to the care of Bass Okeechobee
Funeral Home and Crematory.


However, the number of un-
insured continues to increase,
particularly at income levels ex-
ceeding eligibility requirements
for Coordinated Care.
More than half of the unin-
sured 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 peo-
ple go without health insurance is
the cost.
To give them an affordable
option the Health Care District
launched Vita Health.
The majority 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 tar-
geted populations.
The District spends approxi-
mately $85 million a year on de-
livering health coverage solutions
in Palm Beach County.
In addition to these managed
care programs, the Health Care
District serves the community
through other core programs,
including a maternity program, a
rural public hospital, a nationally
acclaimed Trauma System, a net-
work of pharmacies, a rehabilita-
tion and skilled-nursing center,
and clinics with a dedicated nurse
in more than 170 public schools.

Local author releases new book


The old days of Florida come
alive in a new book by Nancy
Dale, long time Palmdale resident
and native Miamian.
Two hundred years ago, Pio-
neer "cow hunters and huntress-
es" in search of a better place to
grow their families and raise cattle
forged their way into the heart of
wild Florida.
They survived by wit and for-
titude and drove down stakes in
the unforgiving land.
Forging ahead in covered
wagons, alongside of their cattle,
they carved rutted trails through
hundreds of miles of pine forest,
trudged through marshy swamps,
black clouds of mosquitoes, bat-
tled hurricanes, pestilence, and
disease to settle on Florida's rich
prairie grassland.
These rugged men and wom-
en cleared and cultivated the land,
grew crops, put up clapboard
houses, and rounded-up "scrub
cattle" left by the 1500s Spanish
explorers to breed and improve
their herd.
The pioneer families passed on
their heritage through generations

of hard work and persistence.
As pioneer Myakka rancher
Norman Proveaux put it, "True
'cow hunters' are bred not
made."


Indiantown "cow huntress"

These stories are the true ad-


ventures of wild Florida as 'o)1J
by the pioneer "cow hunters aih

birth to the Florida cattle indus-
try.
This new book is the third in
a series of true stories of a disap-
pearing lifestyle and culture in
Florida.

Bronson urges vaccinations for horses


TALLAHASSEE-Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son is urging horse owners to get
their animals vaccinated as the
number of Eastern Equine En-
cephalitis (EEE) cases is on the
rise.
As of June 30, there are four
times as many EEE cases com-
pared to the same time period
during the two previous years.
There have been 45 confirmed
cases covering 21 counties as far
south as Palm Beach County.
In the first six months of 2007,
there were 11 cases and the same
number in 2006.
"We have had two relatively
quiet years in a row and I am con-
cerned that horse owners may
get complacent and delay having
their animals properly vaccinat-


ed," Bronson said. "But with the
rainy season starting to resume,
we are likely to see a lot more
mosquitoes than we have during
the two years of drought."
EEE is a viral disease that af-
fects the central nervous system
and is transmitted to horses by
infected mosquitoes.
Signs of the virus include fever,
listlessness, stumbling, circling,
coma and usually death.
The disease is fatal in horses in
90 percent of the cases.
The first case of West Nile Virus
(WNV) has also been detected in
a horse in Madison County.
Bronson says the majority of
cases of EEE and WNV can be
prevented through proper vacci-
nations against mosquito-borne
illnesses and he is reminding
horse owners that now is the time


to take action.
Horse owners are urged to
check with their veterinarian to
make sure their animals have re-
ceived current vaccinations and
booster shots against WNV and
EEE, and that these shots are kept
up to date.
There are ongoing efforts to
keep the mosquito populations
down but, because there is no
foolproof method to prevent the
diseases, vaccinations are critical.
Bronson says EEE can also be
contracted by people and is often
deadly.
Floridians and visitors, espe-
cially in rural areas that don't
have regular mosquito control
programs, can take simple steps
to protect themselves against
mosquito-borne diseases by fol-
lowing a few simple steps:


-- Limit time outside during
dusk and dawn when mosqui-
toes are most active.
-- Wear light-colored, long-
sleeved shirts and long pants to
cover skin and reduce the chance
of being bitten when outside be-
tween dusk and dawn.
-- Eliminate standing water
in yards, such as in birdbaths,
kiddie pools, old tires and other
receptacles, as stagnant water is
an excellent breeding ground for
mosquitoes.
-- Use insect repellent that con-
tains DEET, which is an effective
repellent.
-- Keep window screens in
good repair.
-- Clean out rain gutters and
keep them unclogged to avoid
pockets of standing water.


TALLAHASSEE-The Florida
Public Service Commission (PSC)
on Tuesday adjusted fuel charges
for three of Florida's investor-
owned electric utilities; Florida"
Power & Light Company (FPL),
Progress Energy Florida, Inc.
(Progress), and Florida Public
Utilities Company (FPUC).
The PSC reviews utilities' pro-
jected fuel costs annually in No-
vember and determines how the
fuel costs will be passed on to
customers.
If actual fuel costs are substan-
tially different from projected fuel
costs, the company can request
a mid-course adjustment, as did
FPL, Progress, and FPUC.
Florida's investor-owned utili-
ties are not allowed to earn a
profit on the cost of fuel used to
generate electricity.
If the PSC determines that a


company has recovered more
than it actually spent in the previ-
ous year, the coming year's pro-
jected fuel charges are reduced to
rclund that amount of over recov-
ery, including interest.
"We're seeing higher prices at
the grocery store, at the gas pump,
and in the fuels used to generate
electricity for our homes," said
PSC Chairman Matthew M. Carter
II.
"Fuel costs represent about
51 percent of a typical residential
electric bill, so we need to con-
serve daily to help reduce some of
the costs resulting from increased
fuel prices."
Here are the new fuel cost and
purchased power charges for the
three utilities:
Florida Power & Light Compa-
ny: Based on the new fuel charg-
es, the total monthly electric bill
for residential customers using


1,000 kwh will be $110.77, effec-
tive Aug. 4, 2008.
Progress Energy Florida, Inc.:
Based on the new fuel charges,
the total' monthly electric bill for
residential customers using 1,000
kwh will be $110.59, effective
with the first billing cycle in Au-
gust 2008.
The Commission also voted to
eliminate the $3.61 per 1,000 kwh
storm cost recovery surcharge
after the last billing cycle in July
2008.
Florida Public Utilities (Mari-
anna): Based on the new fuel
charges, the total monthly elec-
tric bill for residential customers
using 1,000 kwh will be $123.45,
effective July 29.
Florida Public Utilities (Fernan-
dina Beach): Based on the new
fuel charges, the total monthly
electric bill for residential cus-
tomers using 1,000 kwh will be


$116.44, effective July 29.
The PSC is committed to mak-
ing sure that Florida's consumers
receive their electric, natural gas,
telephone, water, and wastewa-
ter services in a safe, affordable,
and reliable manner.
The PSC exercises regulatory
authority over utilities in the areas
of rate base/economic regulation;
competitive market oversight;
and monitoring of safety, reliabil-
ity, and service.

Is baptizing at an early age a valid concern?


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
Recently I had a column, titled,
"Who Is Eligible For Baptism?"
Someone wrote an answer to
my column, titled, "Baptism: 'Let
The Children Come To Me; Do
Not Hinder Them.'
First, I sincerely believe what I
put in my column is true and in
biblical context.
I believe that the Bible teaches
that only those old enough to re-
alize they have sinned, and have
come to believe the Gospel, re-
pented of sin, confessed faith in
Christ, are eligible for Christian
Baptism.
Baptism is the immersion in
water of a penitent, confessing
believer in Jesus Christ, and is for
the remission of sins to receive
the Holy Spirit.
The Lord adds such a one to
His Church. I further believe the
Bible teaches that those who have
not reached the age that they can
perceive the Gospel are innocent
and are safe.
They do not need salvation
since they have not sinned. Sin
being "the transgression of God's
Law" and "knowing to do good
and doing it not" (I John 3:4;
James 4:17).
I also believe that this person
who wrote a contrary article to


my position is sincere and be-
lieves that babies and those not
old enough to believe that are not
baptized, are lost and go to Hell.
This person believes that sprin-
kling of water on a candidate is
valid baptism.
I do not believe this position is
right, according to the teaching of
Jesus and His Apostles.
The Bible teaches that a per-
son can be sincere and be wrong.
Jesus said, "And ye shall know
the TRUTH, and the TRUTH shall
set you free" (John 8:22). Again,
He said, "Thy Word is Truth, 0
God."
This person said that I took
Ezekiel 18:20 out of context. This
I deny.
This verse teaches that God
does not hold a child responsible
for the sin of his parents. Read it
for yourself!
This person quoted only part
of what Jesus said in Matthew
19:14.
The part he quoted says in the
KJV, "But Jesus said, Suffer little
children, and forbid them not, to
come unto me:" The rest of the
verse says, "FOR OF SUCH IS THE
KINGDOM OF HEAVEN."
The children were not com-
ing to Jesus for baptism but for
blessing and Jesus said they were
already "OF THE KINGDOM OF
HEAVEN."
Read it for yourself! Jesus also


said in Matthew 18:3 "Except ye
be converted and BECOME AS
LITTLE CHILDREN, ye shall not
enter into the kingdom of Heav-
en.
I choose to believe what Jesus
said and not what the is person
said about little children!
This person also referred to
Psalm 51:5 as proof that babies
are born in sin.
This Psalm needs to be kept
in its context. It was written after
Nathan the prophet had come
to inform David of God's judg-
ment against him because of his
adultery with Bathsheba, and the
murder of Uriah, her husband.
David was feeling so low down
and exaggerates his guilt.
He says that his Mother con-
ceived him in iniquity. That would
be his Mother's sin, not his.
When the baby that was born
as a result of this adulterous affair,
died at 7 days old, did David say
he had gone to Hell?
Read what he actually said in
II Samuel 12:23 "Can I bring him
back again? I SHALL GO TO HIM,
but he shall not return to me."
I believe that the scripture
teaches that this little innocent
baby went to Heaven and so did
David.
Jesus said to baptize "believ-
ers" in Mark 16:16, and "dis-
ciples" in Matthew 28:19. Babies
are neither!


The Bible teaches that there
are prerquisites to Baptism. 1.
Faith in the Gospel (Mark 16:15-
16; Matthew 28:19-20). 2. Repen-
tance of sin (Acts 2:38; 17:30-31).
3.Confession of Faith in Christ
(Acts 8:37; Romans 10:9-10). 4.
The candidate must also un-
derstand at the time of baptism
what he is doing in obeying the
Gospel (Romans 6:3-5; 16-18).
This person also said that the
conversions of the Philippian Jail-
er and Lydia and her household in
Acts 16 proved that infants were
baptized.
In the case of Lydia that AS-
SUMES several things: 1.That
Lydia was married. 2. That she
had children. 3. That she had
them with her, since she was in a
foreign land on business. 4. That
among those children were in-
fants or those not old enough to
believe.
That is a lot of assumptions on
which to build a case! In the case
of the Philippian Jailer the scrip-
ture says in Acts 16:34 that the
whole family BELIEVED in God."
Not all families have young
children in them. Bishop Burnett
(Episcopal) in Exposition of the
39 Articles, Article 37, said, "There
is NO express precept, or rule,
given in the New Testament for
the baptism of infants."
Dr. Wall (Episcopal) in "His-
tory of Infant Baptism", Introduc-


tion, page 1, said, "Among all the
persons that are recorded as bap-
tized by the Apostles, there is NO
express mention of any infant."
This person said that the Bible
doesn't say "Do it" or "Don't do
it."
What if I said concerning the
use of cocaine, the Bible doesn't
say "Do it" or "Don't do it," so you
can chose to "Do it."
In conclusion, let me answer
briefly the question: "SHOULD
YOUR BABY BE BAPTIZED?"
1.1f you baby can believe the
Gospel, then he should be bap-
tized (Mark 16:15-16; Acts 8:36-
40).
2.1f your baby can repent, then
he should be baptized (Acts 2:38;
17:30-31).
3.1fyour baby can confess faith
in Jesus Christ, then he should
be baptized (Acts 8:37; Romans
10:9-10).
4.1f you can find an example in


the Bible of any baby's baptism,
then yours should be baptized,
too.
5.If your baby is prepared
to bury the old man of sin and
arise to walk in newness of life,
he should be baptized (Romans
6:3-5; 15-18).
6.1f your baby knows the Lord
and His Doctrines, then he should
be baptized (Hebrews 8:8-12).
It is my prayer that the unity
for which Jesus prayed is John 17
will become a reality.
But this unity will only come
when we follow the Apostles'
Teaching and not the teaching of
men (Mark 7:7-9).
Paul pleaded in I Cor. 1:10-13
that we all speak the same thing
and that there be no divisions
among us.
I am working and praying to
that end.


Trust in Him who holds our future


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
In my first years of ministry, I
had a District Superintendent who
drilled into us that challenges and
changes are "opportunities to ex-
cel" for men and women of faith.
With tears in my heart, I called
him and stated that I had an "op-
portunity to excel" because the
Wesley House at Stetson Univer-
sity had been struck by lightning
and had burned down.
The reality was that I did not
think of the fire as an opportunity
to excel at the time.
There were a lot of heart aches
and times of high stress, a lot of
wondering what the future might
hold or even if there was going to
be a future.
It was a trial that brought
changes.
Nothing would ever be as it
was before.
And in some ways that was
good. I had taken up golf, and
knew just about every inch of the
golf course - except the fair way!
When my clubs melted in the
fire, I took it as a sign from God
and have never taken up a golf
club since, except for putt-putt.
But more than a change in
spending time on the greens, it
caused us to re-examine our pur-
pose and focus on what we were
doing and where we were going.
The future was not secure as it


had been, and we had to step out
on faith and trust in God as we
worked on building and securing
what our new future was going to
be.
With the recent news about
U.S. Sugar, our communities are
faced with a change and a chal-
lenge.
Again I find myself in a com-
munity situation where we don't
know what the future holds, but
we know things will never be as
they were.
It is time again to trust in Him
who holds our future and act ac-
cordingly.
Pastor Chuck Pelham of New
Harvest Church expressed some
of these same thoughts in a letter
he shared with me.
It's addressed to the pastors
around the Lake, but it could be
to all men and women of faith:
Dear Fellow Servants of the
Lord, I am writing this letter to
you in a response to the recent
news concerning U.S. Sugar.
I am sure by now you have
heard many things that have been
circulated in our community by
many people who are fearful and
full of worry.
I believe as the ministers of
this city it is our responsibility to
stand in our pulpits and declare
with unity and with authority that
this city is a prosperous place and
our greatest days are ahead of us


and not behind us.
This should not come as a
surprise to us but rather as an an-
swer to prayer.
For many years churches have
stood and believed God for a
move of God in this city and re-
gion and many of us have prayed
for God to do a new thing.
Well the new thing has ar-
rived.
It may not have come in the
package that we thought it would
come in but nevertheless it's
here.
And if it's really a new thing
then it must be a new thing -
meaning something that we have
never seen.
Isa 43:19 "For I am about to do
a brand-new thing. See, I have al-
ready begun! Do you not see it? I
will make a pathway through the
wilderness for my people to come
home. I will create rivers for them
in the desert!" (NLT)
I believe not only is this a great
opportunity for our city but for
churches as well.
This is an hour for our church-
es to stand tall and begin to shine
in the face of impending dark-
ness.
People need to hear that God
has a plan for this City and re-
gion.
"He has a plan to give us a
future and a hope." (Jeremiah
29:11).

Hard times: 'Ain't it awful' or 'Put out into the deep?'


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church,
Clewiston
Years ago, I attended a confer-
ence at the University of Florida
entitled "Crust over the Volcano."
It had nothing to do with vol-
canoes, but it was about what
happens to people.
The premise was that a peo-
'pie become comfortable in their
routines and habits, with their fa-
vorite brands, choices of automo-
biles, their neighborhoods, and
on the job.
Something will come along to
- shake them up, and they'll com-
plain "Ain't it awful?" and have all
-sorts of reactions to what is going
on.
Sometimes the reactions are
helpful, sometimes they're not.
The presenters at the confer-
ence maintained that our growth
is in the process or reorganizing,
"that takes place when we deal
with making a new and different
life after the calm of former pat-
terns is shattered.
I We olive, keeping the "crust


over the volcano" that we don't
want to break through and dis-
turb our quiet, or relatively quiet
life.
Then, one day, all of the explo-
sive energy breaks through when
the crust gives way to forces and
pressures usually beyond our
control.
Then comes something that
can be very good; we learn that
the end did not come and that
doors opened and new possibili-
ties were there when we searched
for them.
Richard Nixon was turned
down by a Wall Street law firm
when he applied for a job there.
He might have become a me-
diocre attorney if they accepted
him, and no doubt he was disap-
pointed when his application for
the job wasn't accepted.
A great surgeon told of his be-
ing turned down by one of the
smaller medical schools.
His disappointment was con-
veyed to his father and he was
ready to "throw in the towel."
His father suggested that per-
haps he didn't apply to a medical
school that was good enough,


and he was later accepted at the
Harvard medical School.
Simon(Peter) is a fisherman in
the New Testament and frustrated
with catching nothing all night
(Luke 5:1 f).
It was time to recognize that it
would be one of those nights and
go home.
The Lord made an outlandish
suggestion (v.4) "Put out into the
deep and let down your nets for
a catch."
After some grumbling, (the
crust was still over his volcano),
he decides to ignore the failure
and go fishing one more time.
All of these people, and thou-
sands of others like them, have to
reorganize.
It comces on the basis of bad
news or a bad break and will
shake them out of their ordinary
lives and daily plans.
The "comfortable rut" is gone.
Each had to learn something
about themselves; they were
capable of more than they gave
themselves credit for being able
to do.
The reorganization brings a
source of enw strength and new


HRMC explains fevers in kids


If you're a parent, you've prob,
ably experienced this scenario:
You wake up in the middle of the
night to find your child flushed,
hot and sweaty. Your little one's
forehead feels warm. You imme-
diately suspect a fever, but are un-
sure of what to do next. Should
jyou get out the thermometer or
call the emergency room?
In healthy kids, fevers usually
don't indicate anything serious.
.Although it can be frightening
when your child's temperature
rises, a fever causes no harm and
-can actually be a good thing - it's
often the body's way of fighting
infections - both bacterial and
viral.
Fever occurs when the body's
internal thermostat raises the
body temperature above its nor-
mal level. A normal temperature
is about 98.6 F, when taken orally
(by mouth). Temperatures taken
rectally (by rectum) usually run
'one degree higher than those
*'taken orally.

!,What causes fever?
It's important 'to remember
that fever by itself is not an illness.
It's usually a symptom of an un-
derlying problem. Fever has sev-
eral potential causes:
* Infection: Most fevers are
caused by 'infection or other ill-
ness. Fever helps the body fight
infections by stimulating natural
defense mechanisms.
*Overdressing: Infants, espe-
cially newborns, may get fevers if
they're over-bundled or in a hot
environment because they don't
regulate their body temperature
as well as older children.
* Immunizations: Babies and
children sometimes get low-grade
'fevers after getting vaccinated.
*Teething - Although teething
may cause a slight rise in body
- temperature, it's probably not the
cause if a child's temperature is
higher than 100 F.

-When can a fever be
.a sign of something
serious?
In the past, doctors advised
treating a fever on the basis of

temperature alone. Now, how-
ever, they recommend consider-
ing both the temperature and the
child's overall condition.
Kids whose temperatures are
lower than 102 F often don't re-
quire medication, unless they're
uncomfortable. There's one im-
portant exception to this rule: If
you have an infant 3 months or
younger with a rectal tempera-
ture of 100.4 F or higher, call your
doctor or go to the emergency
room immediately. Even a slight
fever can be a sign of a potentially
serious infection in very young
infants.
If you child is between three
months and three years old and
has a fever of 102.2 F or higher,
call a physician to see if your child
needs to be seen. For older chil-
dren, take behavior and activity
levels into consideration. Your
child is probably NOT serious if
he/she is:
* still interested in playing
* eating and drinking well
* alert and smiling
.. hs normal skin color
* looks well when tempera-
ture comes down.
Don't worry too much if your
child has a fever, but doesn't want
to eat: This is common with infec-
tions that cause fever. More im-
portantly, make certain your child
drinks and urinates normally.

How can I know if my
child has a fever?
Sometimes a gentle kiss on
the forehead or a hand placed
lightly on your child's skin is of-
ten enough to-give you a hint that
your child has a fever. The most
reliable method is using a ther-
mometer. Your child has a fever if
his/her temperature is at or above
one of these levels.
* 100.4 F measured rectally
* 99.5 F measured orally
* 99 F measured under the
arm
Because fevers may rise and
fall, a child with fever might expe-
rience chills, as the body tries to
generate additional heat and as its
temperature begins to rise.
Sometimes kids with fever
breathe faster than usual and


may have a higher heart rate. You
should call the doctor if your child
is having difficulty breathing, is
breathing faster than normal, or
continues to breathe fast after the
fever comes down.

Helping your child to
feel better
Here are ways to alleviate
symptoms that accompany a fe-
ver, which makes your child feels
uncomfortable or fussy:
*Give acetaminophen or ibu-
profen, based on the package rec-
ommendation for age or weight.
If you don't know the recom-
mended dosage, or if your child is
younger than two years, call the
doctor to find out how much to
give. Remember that fever medi-
cation will usually temporarily
bring a temperature down, but it
will not return it to normal - and it
won't treat the underlying reason
for the fever. NEVER give aspirin
to a child, due to its association
with Reye syndrome, a rare and
potentially fatal disease. Infants
who are under two months old
should not be given medication
for fever without being evaluated
by a doctor. If your child has any
medical problems, check with a
physician to see which medica-
tion is best to use.
*Giving a sponge bath can
make your child more comfort-
able and help bring the fever
down. Use only lukewarm wa-
ter; cool water may cause shiv-
ering, which actually raises the
body temperature. NEVER use ice
packs/cold baths (they can cause
chills that may raise body tem-
perature).
* Dress your child in light-
weight clothing and cover with a
light sheet or blanket. Overdress-
ing and over-bundling can prevent
body heat from escaping and can
cause a temperature to rise.
* Offer plenty of fluids to avoid
dehydration - a fever will cause a
child to lose fluids more rapidly.
* If your child is also vomiting
and/or has diarrhea, ask the doc-
tor if you should give an electro-
lyte solution made especially for
kids.

ated the 100 watt station from
John Boy auditorium, putting out
signals on both High Frequencies
(HF) and Very High Frequencies
(VHF).
The Auditorium if equipped
with a generator to provide pow-
er in cases of emergencies and
the stations is designated as a lo-
cal emergency station.
The 100-watt HF transmitter
communicated with stations from
the entire gulf coast region; from
Texas to North Florida, and as far
away as Ohio.
The VHF transmitter was able
to raise repeater stations around
the lake and will provide contact
with neighboring communities as
the need arises.


The drill demonstrated the ca-
pabilities of our radio station; en-
abling the Clewiston shelter to be
able to get messages in and out as
the need arises.
That was the purpose of the
drill and Jim Sparks, the local
county Emergency Coordinator
said "We've demonstrated our
abilities to be on the air-that was
our purpose, and we did it."
Interested persons are invited
to contact the Big Lake Amateur
Radio Club, which meets the last
Monday of each month at Saint
Martin's Church, Clewiston.

Pictures of the grandchildren...oh boy!


By Diane Timmons
INI Florida
It's no secret that this column
is directed toward seniors in our
community and that many of us
have children that live in other
states. That probably means you
have grandkids out there that are
growing up fast. So you welcome
pictures of them. Or perhaps you
want to see you daughter s new
house or car!
If you are getting email with
these welcome photos attached,
rou want to be able to see and
eep the images so you can look
at them often or even keep them
organized by year.
All email programs are differ-


ent and each presents the attached
file differently, but they still have
enough in common that I should
be able to guide you through the
basics.
First, a note of caution. We all
know about the bad guys out there
who are also sending email to us.
Only open attachments from peo-
ple that you know! Otherwise you
could find yourself battling a nasty
computer virus. That said, lets get
on with it.
There are usually two ways of
getting your email:
* an email program that is set
up to download your email for you
such as Outlook or Netscape mail,
or


* navigating to your email pro-
vider's web page using your web
browser, e.g., Internet Explorer.
Some email programs display
the photo as soon as you open
the email. If yours does that, great;
you get to see the photo immedi-
ately. But, what if you want to save
that picture? Put your mouse ar-
row directly over the picture and
right click. That brings up a list of
items that will let you take further
action with-the picture. The most
commonly picked option is "Save
Picture As...." And this is the one
you want to pick. This command
will bring up a dialog box that lets
you save your picture. Don't get
mouse happy and click "Save"


just yet. There are some important
decisions to be made here. At the
top of the box you will see a line
that's called "Save in." It will prob-
ably. already have a folder desig-
nated; perhaps My Pictures. Make
note of that folder name, because
that is where your picture can be
found in the future. Also important,
near the bottom of the box is a line
called "file name." This line already
has a name there, but it may not
describe the photo very well. Who
cares about DSC000295? You will
want to change that to something
descriptive, such as "Billy2008."
Now click Save.
If your email program is the
other kind that doesn't display the


picture in the email, you will go
through a different process. Usu-
ally, there is a spot somewhere
in the email where the file name
of the attachment is displayed. It
may be near the top of the email or
you may have to scroll all the way
to the bottom of the screen. Find
that file name and left click it with
your mouse. You will probably get
a box on your screen that asks if
you want to open the image or
save it. My choice is usually to save
because then you will be keeping
the picture on your computer to
look at later. The save procedure
is the same as described above
and you will get a box that lets you
determine where the photo will


be saved and lets you name the
photo. If you choose "Open," your
computer will try to locate the best
method of opening your photo. It
may open in Windows Picture and
Fax Viewer which is built into your
operating system. Whatever appli-
cation your computer uses to open
the photo will always give you the
option to save it.
I hope you enjoy your photos
that come via email; after all, isn't
that why email was invented?
I welcome your questions or
comments; email them to dtim-
mons@newszap.com.


When college students need extra


By John Lough
The American
Counseling Association
What effect might a learning
disability have on a student's abil-
ity to succeed in college?
It's a question that's often ig-
nored in the excitement of head-
ing off to college, but it's one that
should seriously be considered by
many students and their parents.
Fortunately, it's a question that
most colleges have begun to ad-
dress in recent years. But while
the majority of colleges today of-


fer, at no cost, special programs,
tutoring and counseling to assist
students with learning disabilities
and special needs, it's still the stu-
dent's responsibility to seek out
needed help.
Far too often students, and
their parents, are reluctant to ac-
knowledge the problem, feeling
that admitting a learning disability
will have them labeled as "slow,"
not college ready, and less intel-
ligent than their peers.
The reality, however, is that
learning disabilities most com-
monly coexist with average to


superior intelligence. Learning
disabilities appear to result from
some neurological impairment
that affects how someone re-
ceives, perceives, processes, re-
tains and expresses information,
not from lack of intelligence. Stu-
dents with learning disabilities
can learn, they just don't learn
like other students.
Someone with a learning dis-
ability may take longer to decode
words when reading, or may
have a limited attention span that
makes it harder to stick to a task,
and may require re-reading mate-


rial several times in order to com-
prehend it.
In high school such problems
are easier to hide or miss. Stu-
dents compensate by putting in
extra study time and getting help
from parents and friends. Rather
than seeing a learning disability,
the student's academic struggles
may be attributed to being bored
or not applying himself.
College, however, is a much
more demanding environment.
For a college student with a
known, or suspected learning
disability, it's essential to talk to


a counselor at the college to help
diagnose the extent of the prob-
lem and to identify available help.
From tutoring help to selecting
professors willing to help stu-
dents needing extra assistance,
most schools have a variety of
free programs to help their stu-
dents succeed.
Being unwilling to admit to a
learning disability isn't a sign of
strength, but rather just a bad de-
cision that will make college work
much more difficult and frustrat-
ing, and that can lead to failure.
There have always been col-


lege students with learning dis-
abilities. Those who identify their
problems and take advantage of
free available help are the ones
who succeed and get the most
out of their college experience.
"The Counseling Corner" is
provided as a public service by
the American Counseling Associa-
tion, the nation's largest organiza-
tion of counseling professionals.

profession at the ACA web site,

Florida receives $18 million 'Gear Up Grant'


TALLAHASSEE - Beginning
this fall, low-income students
at nine schools in four Florida
school districts will have an excit-
ing new opportunity to prepare
for postsecondary education. The
U.S. Department of Education has
awarded an $18 million GEAR UP
(Gaining Early Awareness and
Readiness for Undergraduate Pro-
grams) grant to Florida to support
early college awareness and read-
iness for low-income students.


"Postsecondary instruction is
an essential component for suc-
cess in today's highly competitive
global marketplace,' said Educa-
tion Commissioner Eric J. Smith.
"The GEAR UP grant will help
build dreams and provide the
means for students to consider a
college education."
GEAR UP is a six year discre-
tionary grant that supports early
college awareness and prepara-
tion activities for low-income stu-


dents in grades seven through 12.
It is specifically designed to help
middle and high school students
handle more rigorous and ad-
vanced coursework to better pre-
pare them for college. The grant
also includes a large parent and
student awareness component
that explains the college experi-
ence, clarifies college academic
and financial requirements, and
invalidates the culture that low-
income students cannot attend


college.
The districts and schools par-
ticipating in the GEAR UP grant
are Gadsden County (Carter-Par-
ramore, James A. Shanks Middle
School, Havana Middle School,
East Gadsden High School, West
Gadsden High School), Jefferson
County (Jefferson Middle/High
School), Leon County (Nims Mid-
dle School, Rickards High School)
and the FAMU Developmental Re-
search School.


GEAR UP also calls for local
matching grants and business
partnerships to serve the entire
student population at participat-
ing schools. Partnership grants
are competitive, six-year match-
ing grants that include an early
intervention component and
provide college scholarships. Ad-
ditional grant activities include in-
tensive professional development
and an on-site GEAR UP coach to
assist with parental involvement,


student guidance and counsel-
ing, collection of baseline and
annual data, and arranging col-
lege orientations, summer bridge
programs, and summer college
experiences.

the GEAR UP grant, visit http://

Florida selected to implement school improvement program
TALLAHASSEE-Florida is one intensive intervention such as re- provement levels based on the have met 80 percent or more of have met less than 80 percent of implementation and improve-
of six states selected to participate structuring or closure, school's letter grade, percentage AYP criteria and schools that have AYP criteria, including all "D" and ment strategies following the
in the U.S. Department of Educa- "Under this pilot program, of AYP requirements met, and the met less than 80 percent of AYP "F" schools. It is anticipated that
tion's differentiated accountability schools in Florida that miss a few number of years it has not made criteria, including all "D" and "F" all schools in this category will release of 2007-08 school grade
pilot program. The pilot program AYP criteria can easily be distin- AYP. While this reclassification schools. It is anticipated that "A," require substantial, targeted as- and AYP results. Full implementa-


allows Florida to create a tiered
approach to address required in-
terventions for Title I schools that
have not made Adequate Yearly
Progress (AYP) under the No
Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act for
two or more years. Florida's se-
lection into the program is based
on a proposal that links state and
federal accountability systems
to identify schools that need fo-
cused preventive measures, those
in need of more serious correc-
tive action, and those that require


guished from schools exhibiting
widespread areas of deficiency,"
said Education Commissioner
Eric J. Smith. "This will give us
more flexibility in our improve-
ment and intervention strategies
for these schools, and allow our
state and federal accountability
systems to work in a complemen-
tary fashion."
Participation in the pilot pro-
gram allows Florida to reclas-
sify its Title I schools that do not
achieve AYP into three main im-


does not change federal or state
accountability requirements, it
does allow a more accommo-
dating approach to implement-
ing corrective actions for these
schools. The three types of im-
provement levels are:
Preventive: Schools at this lev-
el are in their first four years of not
making AYP and must implement
varying levels of focused preven-
tative measures to correct specific
issues. This category is subdivided
into "A," "B" and "C" schools that


"B" and "C" schools that meet at
least 80 percent of AYP criteria
will require less stringent levels of
assistance than the other schools
in this category.
Corrective: Schools at this level
have failed to achieve AYP for five
or more years and require more
serious corrective action in order
to resolve persistent weaknesses.
This category is subdivided into
"A," "B" and "C" schools that
have met 80 percent or more of
AYP criteria and schools who


distance in order to successfully
meet AYP requirements.
Intensive: These schools have
failed to achieve AYP for five or
more years in addition to dem-
onstrating severe, long-standing
reading and mathematics-based
deficiencies. They require the
most intensive intervention meth-
ods such as restructuring and clo-
sure.
The Florida Department of Ed-
ucation will begin working with
schools and districts on program


tion is expected to be in place for
the 2008-09 school year. For more

Bronson warns homeowners to check out termite contracts


TALLAHASSEE-Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son is urging homeowners to
take the time to investigate and
educate themselves about pest
control companies they may be
considering for termite protec-
tion. His warning comes as some
areas of the state are experiencing
drywood termite infestations.
While subterranean termites
cause the majority of damage to


homes, drywood termites can
also be destructive. Since dry-
wood termites do not need to
maintain contact with the soil,
they should be treated by tent fu-
migation or liquid treatments ap-
plied directly to the infested lum-.
ber. Licensed pest management
professionals have the expertise
to inspect buildings and treat
them to prevent an infestation or
provide treatment when the in-
sects are found.


Termite control companies are
required to provide written con-
tracts before treating for termites
and to clearly inform customers
as to what type of termites their
contract covers subterranean or
drywood, or both. Homeowners
also need to read the fine print
and find out exactly what the con-
tract covers. The contract should
specify what the company will do
to protect your home and wheth-
er they will treat, re-treat, or repair


any damage if a termite infesta-
tion occurs. Pest control compa-
nies are legally obligated to abide
by the terms of the contract.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices regulates and licenses pest
control companies and conducts
regular inspections to ensure the
businesses are adhering to the
rules and regulations governing
pesticides and pest control. Con-
sumers can contact the depart-


ment at 1-800-HELPFLA (1-800-
435-7352) to find out whether a
pest control company is properly
licensed, to find out how many
consumer complaints have been
filed against a particular business
and to learn about the various
types of termite control contracts.
Most pest control operations
in Florida are licensed and have
the proper training. But there are
unlicensed companies in opera-
tion, and it is important to check


out any businesses before sign-
ing a contract. Commissioner
Bronson's Division of Agricultural
Environmental Services conducts
sweeps throughout the state to
find and shut down illegal opera-
tors who may put people in dan-
ger by misusing chemicals.

Bronson issues propane cylinder advisory


TALLAHASSEE-Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son wants to get the facts out
about concerns that consumers
may be exposed to dangerous
propane cylinders.
The problem is the use of an-
hydrous ammonia with propane
cylinders, which damages them.
This product is used in the manu-


facture of methamphetamines
("meth") and persons who
manufacture "meth" have been
known to use empty propane cyl-
inders to contain anhydrous am-
monia for use in this process. The
anhydrous ammonia deteriorates
the brass valving on the cylinders,
creating an extremely hazardous
situation. The valves on cylinders
which have been exposed will be


a bluish-green color and should
not be used. Consumers should
refuse to purchase any cylinder
which demonstrates these char-
acteristics, and should notify
their local emergency respond-
ers or police department if one is
found.
"The likelihood of a consumer
purchasing a tank that has been
exposed to anhydrous ammo-


nia is very low, but consumers
should be aware of the potential,"
Commissioner Bronson said.
"Propane companies in Florida
are aware of this issue and these
cylinders are unlikely to be refilled
and put back into circulation for
purchase."
But Bronson wants to make
people aware of the situation.
He is more concerned that peo-


ple may find discarded cylinders
and unknowingly handle them.
The Department's Division of
Standards, Bureau of Liquefied
Petroleum Gas Inspection, has
not received any reports of these
cylinders being found for sale or
reports of any injuries.
Consumers are reminded to
avoid using soapy solutions con-
taining ammonia when clean-


ing or checking equipment for
leaks, as this can also be harmful
to equipment. Consumers with
questions concerning this issue
may contact the Bureau of Lique-
fied Petroleum Gas Inspection at
850-921-8001 for more informa-
tion.


Record number of Florida schools earn high grades


TALLAHASSEE-Florida has
more schools earning "A's" and
"B's" than ever before according
to the 2008 school grades results
recently announced.
Of the 2,889 schools graded
this year, nearly three quarters
(2,125) are considered to be high
performing (receiving either an
"A"' or "B" grade).
Additionally, the number of
schools considered to be low per-
forming decreased significantly
compared to last year.
"Congratulations to our stu-
dents, parents, teachers and
principals for gaining ground in
student achievement and learn-
ing," Governor Crist said. "While
we are proud of the success we
have gained, we pledge to con-
tinue working to make improve-
ments and lift up our struggling
schools."
Of Florida's 2,889 graded pub-
lic schools earning "A"' through
"F" grades this year:
1,583 earned an "A' (55 per-
cent), an increase of 100 schools


compared to last year.
542 earned a "B" (19 percent),
an increase of 73 schools com-
pared to last year.
565 earned a "C" (20 percent),
a decrease of 22 schools com-
pared to last year.
154 earned a "D" (5 percent),
a decrease of 62 schools com-
pared to last year.
45 earned an "F" (2 percent), a
decrease of 38 schools compared
to last year.
"The school grades this year
indicate that Florida's teachers
and schools are going above and
beyond to meet the needs of their
students," said Education Com-
missioner Eric J. Smith. "I com-
mend them on such excellent
work, and thank them for their
continued efforts to provide qual-
ity learning environments that en-
able our children to succeed."
School Performance Rises
with Higher Expectations Florida
continues to raise its school per-
formance expectations to ensure
students are prepared for the


rigor of postsecondary education
and the workforce.
In 2007, the expectations were
raised for the fourth time since
the inception of school grades.
This year's results confirm
historical trends that indicate
schools respond with improved
performance when expectations
are raised.
The number of low perform-
ing schools (receiving an "F"
grade) declined to 45 this year,
down from 83 in 2007.
Of last year's 83 "F" graded
schools, five improved to an "A,"
seven improved to a "B," 33 im-
proved to a "C" and 20 improved
to a "D."
School Recognition Program
Remains Incentive for Improve-
ment
The Florida School Recogni-
tion Program rewards schools
that have sustained high student
performance or demonstrated
substantial improvement in stu-
dent performance.
Schools that receive an "A," or


improve at least one performance
grade from the previous year, are
eligible to earn an additional $85
per student.
The School Recognition Pro-
gram has had a positive effect on
schools maintaining and improv-
ing grades.
In 2008, 1,203 schools main-
tained their "A," 32 newly opened
schools earned an "A," 348
schools improved to an "A" and
350 schools improved to a grade
other than an "A."
For Florida's struggling
schools, the Assistance Plus pro-
gram provides funding, resources
and support to address areas of
weakness.
Additionally, failing schools re-
ceive school improvement facili-
tators, reading coaches, technical
assistance and assessments to
monitor student progress.
Adequate Yearly Progress
(AYP)
Required as a part of the fed-
eral No Child Left Behind (NCLB)
Act, AYP measurements target the


performance and participation of
various student subgroups on
statewide assessments based on
race or ethnicity, socioeconomic
status, disability, and English pro-
ficiency.
While the majority of public
schools are measured for AYP,
only Title I schools (schools that
receive federal funding for low-
income students) face increas-
ing levels of corrective action for
failing to meet AYP two or more
years in a row.
These actions remain the
same for each school regardless
of the percentage of AYP criteria
met or their performance on state
accountability requirements.
This year, 1,104 Florida Title I
schools did not make AYP.
Florida was recently selected
to participate in the federal Differ-
entiated Accountability pilot pro-
gram which provides more flex-
ibility for Title I schools in the type
of corrective actions they need to
implement.
Through the program, Title


I schools that consecutively fail
to make AYP will be placed into
three main improvement levels
based on the school's letter grade,
percentage of AYP requirements
met, and the number of years it
has not made AYP.
For more information regard-
ing Florida 's participation in the
Differentiated Accountability pilot
program, visit http://www.fldoe.
org/news/2008/2008_07_02.asp.
Parents will receive a school
report card that provides a com-
prehensive look at their child's
school, with results under state
and federal standards, as well as
information on spending at the
school level.

Banking available anytime, anywhere


Convenience is the
name of the game

Today there are more demands
on your time than ever before, so
going to the bank isn't always
possible - or necessary.
Why waste time and gas going
to the bank to stand in line, when
you can do much of your bank-
ing anytime, anywhere online, by
telephone, or using your banking
card.
Depending on the services
your bank provides, you could ac-
cess your account, pay bills, and
check balances by telephone, on
the Internet, or with one of your
bank's other services.
For people with multi-faceted
lives and hectic schedules, conve-
nience is the name of the game,
and modern banking technolo-
gies aren't just convenient, they
save time and money.
Telephone Banking
Most banks let you access a
long list of automated services by
phone 24 hours a day. With this
convenience you can:
*Check the balance on your
checking or savings accounts


*Determine when checks
clear or deposits post to your ac-
count
*Verify electronic deposits
such as payroll and social security
payments. With an Automated
Clearing House (ACH) system,
you can also find out when
checks are automatically depos-
ited to your account
*Transfer funds between your
business or personal checking or
savings accounts
,*Determine the balance on
your line of credit
*Check CD and money market
rates
Call centers
You can also call your bank
for more complex services like
applying for a personal line of
credit, credit card, or personal
loan; getting help balancing your
account; or stopping a payment.
Since this often requires speaking
to a banker, many banks only of-
fer these services during standard
working hours, but some provide
it around the clock.
Bank ATMs
Automated Teller Machines
(ATMs) are everywhere now,
both at your bank's branches and


in retail and public locations like
supermarkets, gas stations, malls,
and movie theaters.
You can use a retail ATM to
get cash or check the balance on
your checking or savings account.
Some ATM networks charge ser-
vice fees.
Bank ATMs also let you make
transfers and view up-to-the-min-
ute account information anytime
and your bank may not charge
a fee if you use an ATM it owns,
so save yourself some money by
asking where your bank's ATMs
are located.
Electronic services
To get more time to do what
you really want to, take advantage
of services like Direct Deposit and
Automatic Deduction. Use Direct
Deposit to electronically deposit
any regular monthly income -
such as your salary, pension, So-
cial Security, or Supplemental Se-
curity Income (SSI) benefits - into
your checking, money market,
NOW, or savings account.
Automatic Deductions are ide-
al for making regular payments
like your rent or mortgage, utility
bill, or savings plan deposit.
Online Banking


Bank websites have expand-
ed, allowing you to manage your
finances with a minimum of has-
sle, plus save time and money.
Some services you may find on
your bank's website are:
* View balances on your check-
ing or savings accounts, loans,
lines of credit and credit cards
*View past statements
*Transfer funds between ac-
counts
*Pay bills securely
*Print check images
*Request stop payments
*Download information to
budgeting software like Quicken
Regardless of your banking
needs, a full-service bank should
offer you the convenience and
service you need in your busy life.
Stop in and ask for help.


Florida Forever


becomes law


TALLAHASSEE-Governor
Crist signed into law late Monday
Senate bill 542, which extends
the Florida Forever program
through 2020 at $300 million a
year. The new law went into ef-
fect on July 1.
"This is the best investment
we could make in our children's
future," said Nature Conser-
vancy Florida State Director Jeff
Danter.
"Extending the Florida For-
ever program will help protect
Florida's most important assets
- its natural spaces and wild-
life."
The Nature Conservancy is
grateful to Governor Crist and
the Florida Legislature for hav-


ing the vision to extend land
conservation funding well into
the future.
Florida Forever and Preserva-
tion 2000 have helped protect
more than 2 million acres.
The legislature must appro-
priate funds to launch Florida
Forever bonds in the budget
each year.
"Our job is not done," said
Danter. "We must ensure that
funds are spent on the highest
conservation priorities, and we
must continue to make the case
for Florida Forever every day."

McArthur
Continued From Page 1

Fuel prices have only added to
the equation. With national gaso-
line prices above the $4 mark,
and diesel prices slightly higher,
the extra costs are passed down
to the consumer.
Mr. Wright said that some of
the focus is now shifting to the
"attractive" idea of exporting
dairy products such as milk pow-
der and cheese to recoup profits
lost to the weakening dollar.
"We're just trying to cover our
increased cost in production with
our wholesale cost increases,"
said Mr. Wright. "I think McAr-
thur will tell you their business is
tough right now. I don't doubt the
consumer is feeling it, but I don't
know anybody who's getting rich
from this."
At the nearby Wal-Mart, prices


were slightly lower, but still higher
than average.
Octavio studied the rows of
milk jugs lined up neatly in the
refrigerator, having taken a bit
of time in the afternoon to shop
with his son.
"I'm looking at which one I'll
get," he said. "They're all expen-
sive. Too expensive."
The good news is that generic
brands, or store-label brands cost
much less than McArthur's; most
of them hovering around the
$3.95 mark.


Who sets the final
price?
Dairy farmers do not directly
communicate with processing:
plants such as McArthur Dairy,
and rely on co-ops such as South-
east Milk to act as sales agents.
The co-op transports milk
from farmers in Okeechobee, as


an example, to the McArthur pro-
cessing plant in Miami, where the
milk is tested and stored before
being packaged and shipped to
stores like U-Save.
Mr. Wright's own farm sells
milk at the wholesale price of
about $1.95 per gallon. The pro-
cessing plant that receives it must
bear the cost of packaging and
transport, which drives the cost
up to the $4 gallon range to retain
profitability.
Because McArthur promotes
milk that is free of hormones, the
cost of milk sold to them is high-
er; Mr. Wright sells his at closer to
$2.50 a gallon to McArthur. With-
out hormones, cows produce
less, so farmers must sell the milk
at a higher cost.

The effect on retail
The fact that milk has increased
in costs has led to a unique situa-
tion at stores competing for the


consumers' money. At this point,
very few stores are willing to pass
all the cost to the customer, and
some are taking a hit offering milk
at all.
"Walgreen's and CVS, I don't
think they're making any money
out of selling milk at that price,"
said Mr. Wright. "When I com-
pute the raw milk costs and the
processing costs, I don't think
they're making any money at that
price level."
Jeff Chue, the general manager
at the Clewiston U-Save, supports
the theory.
U-Save sells its own store-label
milk at $4.39 a gallon, but the
manager concedes that even this
is too low to recoup costs.
"Because we're trying to keep
costs as low as we can too, we're
taking a beating," said Mr. Chue.
"That milk should have been over
$5 a gallon."
The question is whether con-
sumers will support paying such


high prices for milk -- especially
for a premium brand.
The likelihood that prices will
go down eventually is an idea not
strongly supported by retailers
or farmers. A fundamental shift
must occur for that to happen,
and the chances of that happen-
ing quickly are remote.
"It wasn't that long ago, maybe
in the last 10 or 12 years, when the
retail price went over $3 a gallon,
we all held our breath and were
worried if the consumer would
pay it," said Mr. Wright.
At the $7 price, Mr. Chue re-
ports that sales have been bleak
for the McArthur brand.
He answers with a resounding
"heck no" when asked whether
sales have maintained for the
brand in the month since prices
have shot up.
"I told McArthur that they might
as well quit coming because,
who's gonna buy that milk for $7
when you can get if for less?" he


asked. "There are not that many
customers buying that milk. They
look at it and say, 'whoops.'"
Stores like U-Save, with only
eight locations throughout the
state, have a difficult position and
simply can't compete with Wal-
Mart in sheer purchasing power.
It is the main reason it is forced
to sell milk at $7.59, in contrast
to Wal-Mart's $6.18 price for the
same product.
So Mr. Chue concentrates on
his store's label, rather than on
premium brands.
It won't be affecting his own
household, though.
"To me, the milk is the same
as the other companies' milks. It
might be a little different in the
taste, yes, I'm not sure ... I'm not
really a milk drinker."

Grades
Continued From Page 1

prehensive Assessment Test, as
well as student progress from
year to year.
The results for the 2007-08
school year demonstrate a strong
showing for the county, espe-
cially for several key schools like


Clewiston High School, which
previously scored an 'F' during
the 2001-02 school year.
Since the grading system was
first instituted during the 1998-99
school year, the strongest per-
forming school has been LaBelle
Elementary School, which has
earned seven 'As,' two 'Bs' and a
single 'C.'
Other schools consistently


maintaining high scores include
Edward A. Upthegrove Elementa-
ry in LaBelle -- which has earned
three 'As' and two 'Bs' since its
opening, and Country Oaks Ele-
mentary, also in LaBelle -- posting
four 'As,' four 'Bs' and two 'Cs.'
