Candidate forum held at John Boy


Sheriff candidates
campaign for votes,
position

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- A political fo-
rum held at the John Boy Audi-
torium last week drew the major
contestants participating in the
August primary election.
Although the format was bet-
ter suited to a quick meet and
greet, some candidates took ad-


vantage of the stage to talk about
their positions on important is-
sues.
The most involving category
of the night revolved around the
race for sheriff of Hendry Coun-
ty, and the five political hopefuls
spoke to the voters who, just a
few short weeks from now, will
have the ultimate say.
Participants had the oppor-
tunity to introduce themselves,
answer questions, and provide
a final remark. The forum ran
three-and-a-half hours, but most
audience members stayed to the


end of the Clewiston Rotary-,
Lions- and Chamber-sponsored
event.
The last question of the night
was a controversial one and
showed how each one of the
prospective sheriffs would han-
dle the task: Do you or would
you support combining the
Clewiston Police Department
and the Hendry County Sheriff's
Office?
Fred Dyess, Jr.: "The only way
I'm going to support combining
them is putting them in the same
facility. We don't have the dollars


to continue expanding one or
the other. We need to have as-
signed investigators on this side
of the county, which currently do
not exist, working with the inves-
tigators of the city police depart-
ment to fight crime within your
community."
Rick Hornsby: "Absolutely
not, and I'll you why. What we
have to do is build a rapport be-
tween the Hendry County Sher-
iff's Office and the Clewiston
Police Department. The same
people committing crimes in
the county are the same people

Discovery Day Academy: Summer of fun

Students at Discovery Day Academy enjoyed a very rewarding summer of fun this year. Events were planned all
throughout the summer for the kids to have a chance to see what our surrounding communities have to offer. This
year the after school program decorated their classroom in an "Under the Sea" theme, with projects that students
have put together through the summer.

power

Voters to decide on
issue in Aug.
primary
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Although
his time as the school district's
superintendent is coming to
an end, Tom Conner is still do-
ing what he can to help local
schools.
"You don't work for a place
for 38-plus years and not care
about it," the current superinten-
dent said.
Mr. Conner is supporting a
referendum that will be featured
on the ballot in the Aug. 26 pri-
mary giving the school board
more power in using funds as it
sees fit; rather than being forced
to spend primarily on one area
of the school system.
The superintendent contends
that the referendum is critical in
these times of continued finan-
cial constraint.
The referendum will ask vot-
ers whether they agree to allow
the school board to utilize capi-
tal outlay funds to fund essential
services and very likely keep jobs
-- including teacher positions --
until the end of the school year.
During the 08-09 fiscal year,
the district had to cope with a
rollback of state revenue of over
$3 million. As a result, $2.4 mil-

Hearing loss customers have phone access


TALLAHASSEE-Florida Pub-
lic Service Commission (PSC)
Chairman Matthew M. Carter II
and Florida Telecommunications
Relay, Inc. (FTRI) Executive Di-
rector James Forstall teamed up
to recognize the 18th anniversary
of the Americans with Disabilities
Act (ADA) by showing Florida res-
idents with hearing loss how to
connect with 911, family, friends,
and businesses.
Specialized telephone equip-
ment offered through FTRI pro-
vides critical access to basic
telecommunications services for
deaf, hard of hearing, deaf/blind,
and speech disabled citizens
throughout the state.
Overseen by the PSC, FTRI is a
statewide nonprofit organization
established in 1991, as a result of
the Americans with Disabilities
Act, to administer the Specialized
Telecommunications Equipment
Distribution Program.
"Ensuring that disabled individ-
uals are not discriminated against,
the Americans with Disabilities
Act guarantees telecommunica-
tions access for the hearing im-
paired and speech disabled," said
Chairman Carter.
"In Florida, the PSC is charged
with implementing this direc-
tive. Telephone access provided
through Florida's Relay Service
(FRS) offers peace of mind for
people with hearing loss and their
families."
Florida ranks second nation-
wide in population percentage
with hearing loss, affecting nearly
three million citizens.
More than 3.8 million calls
were handled last fiscal year by
FRS, according to the PSC's 2007
annual report on the Status of the
Telecommunications Access Sys-
tem.
The report also stated that

Levi Sanford Arnold, age 95,
of LaBelle, Fla., passed away July
21, 2008 in Lehigh Acres, Fla.
He was born Aug. 12, 1912 in
Ford County, Kansas to the late
Edward A. Arnold and the late
Ella (Salmons) Arnold.
Levi grew up in Kansas and at-
tended school in Lamed, Kan. He
worked many years for Cessna
Aircraft in Witchita, Kan.
He retired from Cessna in
1980. Levi is a former resident of
Larned, Kan., and Mesa, Ariz.
He was a resident of LaBelle
for the past four years.
Survivors include his niece,
Patsy J. Dougherty and husband
Charles of LaBelle, Fla., and grand
niece, Michele Woods and hus-
band Terry of LaBelle, Fla.

Debra Jean Rhodes
Debra Jean Rhodes, age 51, of
Clewiston, passed away July 25,
2008 in Clewiston, Fla.
She was born Oct. 25, 1956
in Rome, N.Y, the daughter of
Wilmer Charles and Yachiyo
(Sakurai) New.
She worked at Hendry Region-
al Medical Center for many years
as a Medical Transcriber
Survivors include her hus-
band: Glenn Rhodes and two
sons: Brian and Jason Rhodes of


18,937 new deaf, hard of hearing,
deaf/blind, and speech disabled
individuals were served through-
out the state; and 41,337 pieces of
specialized telecommunications
equipment were distributed.
"I sincerely believe that Florida
residents' telephone needs are
being met with the special tele-
phone that is available through
the FTRI program and the Florida
Relay Service.
Our mission is to provide a
special telephone and services to
each Floridian with a hearing loss
or speech disability to allow them
access to the telecommunications
system.
FTRI enjoys a successful work-
ing relationship with the PSC as
well as numerous organizations
throughout Florida.
Working together, we make a
positive difference in someone's
life by "Connecting People to
People," said Mr. Forstall.
FRS supplies quick and conve-
nient telephone access 24 hours a
day, 365 days a year.
Individuals with or without a
hearing loss or speech disability
can place a call through the sys-
tem, and no restrictions are made
on the number or length of calls.
FRS gives users the freedom
and opportunity to make both
personal and business calls.
How does the FRS system
work?
A resident uses a Telecom-
munications Device for the Deaf
(TIY or TDD), which includes a
keyboard and screen, to type a
message to a specially trained
communications assistance op-
erator, who then voices the mes-
sage to the receiving party.
The reverse process then com-
pletes the message to the person
with hearing loss.

this. season. We are again looking

boats and are willing to be avail-
able to assist during any disaster.

teers identified and credentials
before a disaster strikes. When
volunteers have been identified
beforehand we are able to get
them ready to respond in the saf-
est manner possible. There will
be a short training class on safety

will receive credentials that will


allow them to be admitted into
disaster areas in the city.

Consumers urged to check out


travel companies before trip


TALLAHASSEE -- With the
prime vacation season fully under
way, Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson encourages
residents to check out their travel
agency before booking a vaca-
tion.
"While most travel agencies
are reputable and most agents
are honorable professionals, we
occasionally come across those
that are not," Commissioner
Bronson said.
"And there's nothing worse
than saving for a vacation and
then paying thousands of dollars
for it only to learn later that you've
been taken by a con artist."
Before booking a trip, Com-
missioner Bronson recommends
that consumers consider the fol-
lowing tips:
* Call the Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices at 1-800-HELPFLA (1-800-
435-7352) to determine whether
the business is registered with the
state and to determine its com-
plaint history.
Some travel companies are
members of the Airline Report-
ing Corporation, which exempts
them from registering with the
state, but a phone call to the


hotline can verify that fact.
* Never give credit card or
checking account numbers over
the telephone or on a website un-
less you initiated the call or con-
tact, and are certain of the creden-
tials of the company.
* Look for the seller of travel's
current registration certificate
posted in its place of business,
and its registration number print-
ed on all flyers, brochures and all
other advertising materials.
* Know and understand the
company's cancellation policy
before making any purchase.
Some may be non-refundable or
have penalties or additional fees
for re-scheduling.
* Obtain itineraries, accom-
modations and other specifics of
the trip in writing so if there is a
dispute with the travel company
you have a written record of what
you have purchased.
It is also advisable to call the
airline on which you're booked or,
hotel in which you're scheduled
to stay to verify your reservations.
According to Commissioner
Bronson, complaints against
travel companies consistently


rank among the top complaints
received by the Division of Con-
sumer Services.
Last year, for example, the de-
partment received nearly 2,800
written complaints against such
companies, placing them second
behind only unwanted telemar-
keting calls in 2007.
Consumers can file online
complaints against travel com-
panies on the Division of Con-
sumer Services website at http://
www.800helpfla.com.
They can also call the depart-
ment's hotline at 1-800-HELPFLA
(1-800-435-7352) and request
that a complaint form be sent to
them.
During the last five years,
Bronson's department has re-
funded more than $7.5 million to
consumers who filed complaints
against travel companies.
"We've had a good deal of
success getting refunds for con-
sumers in disputes with travel
agencies," Mr. Bronson said.
"But the best course is to avoid
having problems in the first place,
which why we recommend that
consumers check out a travel
company before they do business
with them."


Disaster readiness is essential


By Chip Wilson
Statewide Disability
Coordinator
For many years, Florida has
been infamous for the number of
hurricanes which have impacted
the state. While this is true, our
population is also affected by
other types of disasters.
Several years ago, wildfires
were rampant and thousands
of acres of land were burned,
dozens of houses were lost, and
many lives were changed forever.
Just over a year ago, tornadoes
were responsible for over a dozen
deaths in the central part of the
state.
These events underscore the
need to have a good, comprehen-
sive preparedness plan - especial-
ly for people with disabilities.
Disaster preparedness for
people with disabilities can pres-
ent unique problems due to each


person's disability. Some people
are dependent on external oxy-
gen supplies, some are depen-
dent on electricity for ventilators
or to keep medication at a con-
stant cool temperature, and some
require a consistent ambient tem-
perature.
There are many other factors
ranging from mobility device de-
pendency to communication re-
quirements. With this in mind, it
is important that people with dis-
abilities, their families, caregivers,
and advocates are included and
participate in all phases of disas-
ter preparedness.
Disaster preparedness is truly
a team effort. Each of Florida's 67
counties has an Emergency Op-
eration Center which is staffed by
professionals in disaster prepared-
ness. Emergency management
professionals are encouraged to
reach out to the community and
include people with disabilities in


pre-event, during-event and post-
event planning. Also, individuals
with disabilities and disability-
related organizations are encour-
aged to contact their Emergency
Operations Center and offer to as-
sist in creating and testing the pre-
paredness plans which may be
affecting their lives. However, it is
advised that the public with dis-
abilities not wait for an invitation
to join the EOC but be proactive
and approach their emergency
management group and volun-
teer to assist in any way possible.
At an individual level, a fam-
ily plan can be built using the re-
sources found at www.floridadi-
saster.org. Select "Get a Family
Plan" and follow the directions
from there. Completing the plan
requires about 10 to 15
minutes and will help
you develop a compre-
hensive plan for you and
your family.

TALLAHASSEE -- Florida Ag-
riculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son is warning the public that
firewood can contain destructive
pests and diseases and is urging
people to take steps to reduce the
chance of an infestation.
Commissioner Bronson's Divi-
sion of Plant Industry has posted
a video about preventing the in-
troduction of destructive beetles
and other insects into Florida in
infested firewood on its web site
at http://www.doacs.state.fl.us/pi/
videos.html. The pests can wreak
havoc on many types of trees and
other foliage.
Commissioner Bronson says
many residents and tourists use
firewood for campfires, even
during the summer, and they
need to be aware of the poten-
tial problems. Several species of
destructive wood boring beetles
and diseases can inhabit popular
firewood varieties.
Numerous other states are bat-
tling insects and diseases and he is
concerned that out-of-state camp-
ers will bring their own firewood
to Florida, or people will move
potentially infested firewood from
one area of the state to another.
Any wood-boring beetles and dis-
eases that may have come along


for the ride could infest Florida
plants and trees.
-For example, an Asian long-
horned beetle infestation has
resulted in the destruction of
thousands of maple, elm and
other trees in New York and Chi-
cago; and, the emerald ash borer
has killed millions of ash trees in
Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and
other states.
"It costs millions of dollars to
try and eradicate these pests, not
to mention the tremendous loss
of so many trees," Bronson said.
"The impact on the environment
can be significant and we need to
do everything possible to protect
our trees."
Most recently, a fungus that
causes a fatal disease called lau-
rel wilt threatens Florida forests.
A non-native insect, the red bay
ambrosia beetle, spreads the fun-
gus. Laurel wilt disease kills red
bays, sassafras and pond spice,
and even attacks one of Florida's
most important fruit trees, the
avocado.
Laurel wilt spread into Florida
after wood packing material in-
fested with red bay ambrosia bee-
tles was found in Savannah, Ga.
Dutch elm disease is another
serious problem spreading across
North America.


A fungus transmitted by two
species of bark beetles causes the
disease and has destroyed over
half the elm trees in the northern
United Sates. The fungus has not
yet been found in Florida.
Invasive pests and diseases ar-
rive in Florida each year at a rate
of at least one new significant pest
a month; they come in on cargo
shipments, storm fronts, infected
plant material, in the luggage
of millions of visitors to Florida,
and in firewood. There are ways
Floridians can protect against the
introduction of invasive pests and
diseases:
* Be vigilant. If you see signs
of disease or an unusual pest,
contact your county extension
office or the Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices, Division of Plant Industry,
helpline at 1-888-397-1517.
* Don't pack a pest. When
returning home to Florida from a
trip, don't bring plants, fruits, veg-
etables or illegal animals.
* Purchase only certified
plants from registered nurseries to
ensure they are free of pests and
diseases. Prevent the introduc-
tion and/or spread of unwanted
insects and diseases specifically
involving firewood by following
these simple recommendations:


* Use sources of firewood that
are local (within 50 miles) to the
area of your campground.
* Do not move firewood from
one part of Florida to another.
* Burn all firewood (local or
out-of-state firewood) before
leaving your campground.
* If you are unable to burn
all the firewood due to weather,
fire ban or other reasons, and
you either live in the same, area
of the state (within 50 miles) as
the campground, or are visiting
from out of state, please take the
firewood home. However, if you
live in another area of Florida,
please leave the firewood at your
campground. This will help pre-
vent the movement of pests and
diseases from one part of Florida
to another.

FWC to host conference on Fla. wildlife, climate


Florida's wildlife stands at the
forefront of the battle against the
effects of climate change. But
they don't stand alone. The Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) and other
state and federal agencies and en-
vironmental groups are bracing
to fight for their protection, man-
agement and adaptation.
Florida's Wildlife: On the
Frontline of Climate Change, a
summit hosted by the FWC, will
highlight the challenges facing
wildlife managers, governments,
industry leaders and the public in
the next 50 years in the struggle
with climate change. On Aug.
20-22, experts from the FWC and
other state and federal agencies
will converge in Orlando at the
R6seh PLAZA to discuss the pre-
dicted consequences of climate
change on wildlife, while seeking
answers on how to manage and
conserve Florida's wildlife and
habitats wisely.
"This summit has global sig-
nificance, because the effects of
climate change on places like
Florida and Alaska will be a pre-
lude to what's going to happen
elsewhere in the world," said
FWC Chairman Rodney Barreto.
One of the. keynote speak-
ers, Dr. Jean Brennan, a climate
change scientist with Defend-
ers of Wildlife, was a member
of the U.S. Delegation at inter-
national negotiations under the
U.N. Framework Convention on
Climate Change. She'also served
on the Intergovernmental Panel
on Climate Change (IPCC) and
shares the Nobel Peace Prize
for 2007 for her contribution to


(IPCC). Brennan acknowledges
that Florida's wildlife and habitats
are in a sensitive position when
it comes to the effects of climate
change.
"Florida is extremely vulner-
able with its low elevation," Dr.
Brennan said. "And it's the hard-
est hit with extreme weather such
as hurricanes. The Arctic is seeing
greater temperature changes, but
the biological diversity of plants
and animals in Florida forces the
question: What are you losing?"
The summit will feature pre-
sentations and workshops to
stimulate discussion and offer
solutions to the complexities of a
state growing rapidly in an envi-
ronment changing just as quickly.
On Wednesday, Aug. 20, Dr.
Virginia R. Van Sickle-Burkett
from the United States Geologi-
cal Survey (USGS) will present
reports from the Intergovernmen-
tal Panel on Climate Change. Dr.
Thomas Crisman, from the Uni-
versity of South Florida, will pres-
ent a report on the anticipated
changes in Florida because of cli-
mate change. Dr. Thomas Eason
will present the FWC's report on
Florida's wildlife and its changing
habitats.
A panel discussion in the af-
ternoon will feature specific spe-
cies on the frontline of climate
change, including marine, ter-
restrial and exotic species. The
future of agriculture also will be
on the agenda.
The first day will conclude with
a panel discussion on habitat and
species management, outdoor
recreation, initiatives from the
conservation community, legisla-


tive progress and communication
strategies for public awareness.
Thursday's session will open
with Brennan, who will speak
about management issues of
wildlife and habitat in a changing
climate.
Concurrent workshops, led by
FWC's top scientists, will focus
on marine and inland ecosys-
tems, hunting and fishing, native
wildlife and habitats, invasive
organisms and natural-resource
management and land-use plan-
ning.
The event will continue on
Friday morning with reports from


the workshop facilitators. FWC
Executive Director Ken Haddad
will present the agency's directive
for Florida's wildlife to conclude
the three-day summit.
The early registration fee, prior
to Aug. 4, is $175, which includes
two breakfasts, two lunches and
a reception. After Aug. 4, the fee
is $195. The registration form
may be found at www.ces.fau.
edu/floc/ or by contacting Doreen
DiCarlo at the Center for Environ-
mental Studies at Florida Atlantic
University, 561-799-8553 or 561-

At times it floods surrounding

And for newcomers to the
area, the question often arises: Is
there water under this bridge?
Yes, mostly there is, albeit
overgrown with water weeds of
all sorts and unfortunately gar-
bage and trash from those who've
been called purely troublesome

That is, if they couldn't hitch a
ride on a wagon or buggy coming'
or goin.' School children living
east of the branch did the same
thing who attended the one
school in the area which, at that
time, was located on old Muse
Road, west of Bee Branch.
It's said by a couple of real old-
timers, that the first bridge that
spanned this main road (CR 720/
dateunknown) was a wood struc-
ture which was replaced with a
concrete bridge following WWII,
circa 1945.
This bridge served a good pur-
pose for over a half century but
then when the vegetable farms


which time its demise was not
unexpected but nevertheless,
a "troublesome" fact of life for
those living west of Bee Branch.
Some area residents, particu-
larly those living in the vicinity of
the bridge, began to see and hear
ominous signs that gave them
great concern about the safety of
the bridge.
Several years ago, this concern
became a rather major issue of
the Muse Community Association.
Two members of that association
crawled down under the bridge,
took pictures which were more
than a little "telling," presented
them to Glades County Commis-
sioners and the pressure was on


to build a new bridge, especially
in view of school buses going in
and out of the area.
In the meantime, the Glades
County Road Department
"shored" up the bridge, installed
"slow down" strips on both ap-
proaches and put up signs, follow-
ing an ordinance from the county,
to the effect that there was to be
NO TRUCK TRAFFIC.
The shoring up of the bridge,
and reinforcing the under struc-
ture, did their job, and the bridge
did last until permits and financ-
ing were arranged for a new
bridge which took a couple years
or so.
However, the NO TRUCK
TRAFFIC signs were ignored and
not enforced, but the bridge did
hold together until construction
of the new replacement structure
was begun in June, 2008.
It has been announced that
the project will be completed by
the end of August, just in time for
going back to school.
In the meantime the .detour
route is a 'troublesome' burden
especially in view of plus-or-mi-
nus $4 gas prices.
The detour route takes drivers
west and south via Kirby Thomp-
son Road into Hendry County -
Route 78 - to LaBelle, or cross the
Big River/Caloosahatchee at Fort
Denaud. The left turn goes to La-
Belle, the right turn to Alva and/or
Fort Myers.
As bridges go, it's a minor
structure; however, like all bridges
it will get us, whomever, or what-
ever, from one side to the other.
And it'll be a problem that
probably won't be troublesome
for the rest of this century.

New wage increase could hurt struggling economy


I WASHINGTON-As the United
States approaches yet another
increase in the federal minimum
wage rate on Thursday, July 24,
the Employment Policies Institute
(EPI) released new preliminary
data showing the relationship be-
tween minimum wage increases
and unemployment. The study,
which is being published this
fall and is authored by profes-
sors Joseph Sabia (University of
Georgia) and Richard Burkhauser
(Cornell University), analyzed the
effects of the 2005-06 increase in


New York State's minimum wage
and found that the employment
decline among vulnerable groups
like teenagers and adults without
a high school diploma was sub-
stantial.
The study found that for every
10 percent increase in the mini-
mum wage, employment among
16-29 year olds without a high
school degree decreased between
6 and 14 percent.
This study buttresses scores
of other recent research papers.
A study from the University of


California at Irvine found that for
every 10 percent increase in the
minimum wage, employment for
high school dropouts and young
black adults and teenagers falls by
8.5 percent. Research from Duke
University found that minimum
wage increases cause low-skilled
employees to lose their jobs to
more skilled applicants-often
second and third earners from
wealthier families who wouldn't
have taken a job paying the previ-
ous wage.
The job loss is a result of the


burden government places on
small businesses by consistently
increasing labor costs with auto-
pilot wage hikes regardless of
economic conditions. For a busi-
ness with 20 entry-level employ-
ees in states at the current fed-
eral minimum wage, Thursday's
$0.70 hike will increase labor
costs by approximately $30,000
in the next year. Businesses with
small profit margins would need
to sell hundreds of thousands of
dollars in additional goods or ser-
vices to recoup those increased


costs, a virtual impossibility in this
stagnant economy.
"Decades of economic re-
search clearly demonstrate that
minimum wage hikes result in
job loss for the most vulnerable
members of the economy," said
Rick Berman, Executive Direc-
tor of the Employment Policies
Institute. "The unintended con-
sequences of Thursday's hike
is pricing low-skilled working
Americans out of the job market
and increasing unemployment
among those groups that need


help the most."
"When you put increased la-
bor costs on autopilot, while con-
sumer demand is shrinking and
commodity costs are rising, you
create a recipe for job loss among
the least employable workers."
The Employment Policies In-
stitute is a nonprofit research or-
ganization dedicated to studying
public policy issues surrounding
entry-level employment.


Use caution in heavy Senator Calls for Privatization Plans School
Happenings


rain


Florida emergency manage-
ment officials are urging residents
to use caution during heavy rains
associated with low pressure sys-
tems which could produce local-
ized and urban flooding condi-
tions.
"Never underestimate the
power of water, it only takes a
foot of moving water to push
a car off the road," said State
Emergency Management Director
Craig Fugate. "If you find yourself
approaching a flooded area, it is'
always best to turnaround, don't
downn"
Most deaths from flooding in
the United States are due to peo-
ple driving their cars into flooded
areas. For pedestrians, just 6


inches of fast-moving floodwater
can knock a person off their feet.
"When in doubt, stay safe and
back out," added Director Fugate.
All 67 counties in Florida oper-
ate a local emergency manage-
ment program and the Florida
Division of Emergency Manage-
ment coordinates preparedness,
response, recovery, and mitiga-
tion programs with the local op-
erations and the federal govern-
ment.

saster preparedness and to GET
A PLAN, please visit; www.flori-
dadisaster.org.


Continuing his efforts to pro-
tect taxpayers, Sen. Dave Aron-
berg (D-Greenacres) requested
today that State authorities seek
an independent review of the
potential high stakes agreement
to outsource Alligator Alley - the
critical transportation artery con-
necting Southwest and Southeast
Florida.
"A 50-year lease of. Alligator
Alley has a whopping price tag -
valued by some estimates to be as
high as $1.3 billion - and it needs
to be thoroughly vetted," said
Sen. Aronberg. "Additionally, all
impacted parties should have a
seat at the negotiating table."
The Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) currently
contracts with private vendors for
most of the work done on State
roads. The plan to lease Alligator
Alley, however, would turn over
more decision making authority


to the private sector.
"Florida has had a troubled
history of privatizing other gov-
ernment services, at a significant
cost to taxpayers," said Senator
Aronberg. "Hopefully, we can
learn from previous privatization
missteps and do what's best for
Floridians."
The Legislature created an in-
dependent entity - the Council on
Efficient Government (CEG) - to
review, evaluate, and issue advi-
sory reports on outsourcing plans
that exceed $10 million. FDOT
contracts, however, are legally
exempt from CEG review. Sen.
Aronberg has asked FDOT to al-
low the CEG to review its plans to
outsource Alligator Alley - which
connects the population centers
of his sprawling five-county dis-
trict.
"An independent analysis will
shore up the public's confidence


in the process of evaluating the
pros and cons of outsourcing this
critically important roadway," said
Sen. Aronberg.
Six vendors have been selected
to bid on the project, but no infor-
mation has been released relating
to the terms of the lease. Before
the state commits taxpayers' dol-
lars to the project, Sen. Aronberg
has requested that FDOT hold ad-
ditional public forums and debate
the details of the potential agree-
ment - such as plans to increase
tolls.
"My constituents are under-
standably concerned about the
possibility that privatization will
dramatically increase tolls on
Alligator Alley," said Sen. Aron-
berg. "In today's tough economic
times, the State should not add
to the burdens on Florida taxpay-
ers."

Nubbin Slough advances the Everglades


Improvements
restore wetlands on
former dairy lands

Okeechobee County-The
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) has completed
wetlands restoration on the site of
a former dairy operation, return-
ing dry pasture to wetlands and
increasing stormwater treatment
near Nubbin Slough, a tributary
that feeds into Lake Okeecho-
bee.
"This effort is an example of


how we are successfully reviving
natural lands in South Florida,"
said Jerry Montgomery, SFWMD
Governing Board representing
Glades, Highlands, Okeechobee,
Orange, Osceola and Polk coun-
ties.
"Several carefully designed
projects can restore a large,
well-drained agricultural site to a
thriving tract of Everglades wet-
lands."
The restoration project in-
cluded plugging farm ditches at
the 435-acre District-owned site,
filling in old ponds and removing
abandoned buildings to re-create


historic wetland conditions along
Nubbin Slough.
These improvements will in-
crease water storage and reten-
tion time, and improve water
quality by aiding phosphorus
removal.
Over time, legacy phosphorus
currently locked into soils and
phosphorus in storm water run-
off will be removed by grasses
that will be harvested from the
former dairy pastures.
District scientists estimate
that these combined efforts will
remove about 380 kilograms of
phosphorus each year from the


local wetland system.
The project is one compo-
nent of the landmark Northern
Everglades and Estuaries Protec-
tion Program, which promotes a
comprehensive, interconnected
watershed approach to protect-
ing Lake Okeechobee, the Caloo-
sahatchee River and Estuary and
the St. Lucie River and Estuary.
Expanding the Lake Okeecho-
bee Protection Act in 2007 rec-
ognized the importance and
connectivity of the entire ecosys-
tem-from the Kissimmee Chain
of Lakes south to Florida Bay.
The primary goal of the law is


to restore reaches of the natural
system north of Lake Okeecho-
bee by addressing not only water
quality but also the quantity, tim-
ing and distribution of water to
the natural system.

Mahoney Helps Florida Tomato Growers


Calls for Hearings to
Reform Food Safety
System

Following the Food and Drug
Administration's (FDA) an-
nouncement that tomatoes were
not the likely source of a recent
salmonella outbreak, Congress-
man Tim Mahoney (FL-16) has
introduced a bill, H.R. 6581, to
compensate tomato growers and
packers nationwide for their loss-


es due to the salmonella scare,
which according to the Florida
Tomato Exchange's estimates
could be close to $100 million.
Congressman Mahoney, who
is Florida's only representative on
the House Agriculture Commit-
tee, also called on the Commit-
tee to hold field hearings in his
district to examine what reforms
are needed to ensure food safety.
The Agriculture Committee plans
to schedule a hearing in mid-Sep-
tember.

Group donates food
and items

GAINESVILLE-Florida Farm
Bureau's Young Farmers & Ranch-
ers (YF&R) program has teamed
up with America's Second Har-
vest, the .largest charitable relief
organization in the U.S., to help
feed America.
Young Farmers and Ranch-
ers across the nation have been
working in partnership with Sec-
ond Harvest since 2002 to keep
feeding the hungry.
Young Farmers and Ranch-
ers - Farm Bureau members be-
tween the ages of 18 and 35 - are
donating food and other items to
local food banks affiliated with
America's Second Harvest.
They also donate money and
time.
"Each food bank depends
heavily on individuals and groups
to help in the fight against hun-
ger," said Rachel Kudelko, Florida
Farm Bureau's Young Farmer and
Rancher coordinator.


"Time donated at the local
food bank goes a long way to-
ward helping men, women and
children get the food they desper-
ately need."
Donations by county YF&R
groups will be calculated at the
Florida Farm Bureau Federation
Annual meeting Oct. 8-10, at the
Orlando Peabody Hotel and priz-
es will be awarded to each of the
county Farm Bureaus that donate
the most food, the most money
and the most volunteer hours, re-
spectively.
The Florida Farm Bureau Fed-
eration is the state's largest gener-
al-interest agricultural association
with about 140,000 member-fam-
ilies statewide.
Headquartered in Gainesville,
the Federation is an independent,
nonprofit agricultural organiza-
tion.

tomato industry. Due to the tim-
ing of the salmonella outbreak,
Florida was hit hard. We need to
ensure that all impacted tomato
growers and packers are com-
pensated for their losses to pro-
tect domestic food production,"
said Congressman Mahoney.
"With unfortunate events like
this, .Americans are becoming
aware that food safety and na-
tional security are synonymous.
We clearly need to examine and
overhaul our food safety system

In April, the FDA issued a
nationwide warning that toma-
toes were a possible source of a
salmonella outbreak that made
1,220 people ill in 42 states, the
District of Columbia and Canada.
After a long investigation, the
FDA recently determined that
fresh tomatoes now available in
the domestic market are not asso-
ciated with the current outbreak
and the agency has rescinded its
warning against eating certain


types of red raw tomatoes.
The Mahoney Bill, which is
also cosponsored by U.S. Repre-
sentatives Allen Boyd, Adam Put-
nam, Debbie Wasserman Schultz,
and Vern Buchanan, directs the
Secretary of Agriculture to make
payments to tomato growers and
first handlers that were unable to
market tomato crops as a result
of the Food and Drug Adminis-
tration's Public Health Advisory
issued in June 2008 due to the
salmonella outbreak.
The U.S. Department of Ag-


riculture will be responsible for
issuing regulations and determin-
ing eligibility for compensation,
as they have in other disaster pro-
grams.
"The tomato :industry in
our state has unfairly suffered
enough," Rep. Wasserman
Schultz (FL-20) said.
"The FDA must reform their
trace-back programs so that grow-
ers and consumers do not have to
go through the same nightmare
during future outbreaks."

Summer basketball camp in Clewiston


Lee: 'You prepare to
winl in the offseason'

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
CLEWISTON - The high
school's basketball program may
have just gotten stronger, courtesy
of a summer camp.
Hosted by Willie Lee, the
Clewiston Tigers boys basketball
head coach, the 20th annual bas-
ketball camp was held from June
9 to July 26.
The camp was made avail-
able to all of Clewiston's current
and prospective basketball play-
ers, with a few pleasant surprises
along the way.
From June 19-20, the partici-
pants took. part in an offensive
skills camp at the University of
Miami.
Lee said that the players took
advantage of the two-day camp
by utilizing the principles that are
essential to becoming successful
on the court.
Those aspects include re-
bouinding, shot selection, mental
and physical training, transition,
the ability to reduce turnovers on
offense, and most of all, team-
work.


"The top assistant coaches
from Miami were very impressed
with our kids throughout the
camp," Lee said. "It basically re-
emphasized fundamentals that
they're already learning."
Not only did the Tigers go to a
camp in Miami, but some of the
former players came out and as-
sisted Lee.
Among Lee's former players
who helped out were the likes of
Reggie Gray, Johnny Jones, who
will be going into his sophomore
year at Marshall University and
Andre Williams, who's headed
for junior college in Delta, Miss.
"I used the former players as
a role model to let the kids know
what it takes to get to college,"
jLee said. "Most importantly, they
led the kids by example on and
off the court.".
Though offense is paramount
to the success of a team and it's.
players, Lee and his former play-
ers made it a point to emphasize
the importance of commitment.
to defense.
They know that in order to,
win games, attention to detail on
the defensive front must be ex-
ecuted.
A few things that all the play-
ers are expected to exhibit are the
ability to create turnovers, grab


rebounds and the desire to either
play man-to-man or zone cover-
age on defense, to name just a
few.
It doesn't take long for every-
one to get with the program sim-
ply out of the team's desire to win
basketball games.
"You prepare to win in the off-
season," Lee said.
The 2008-2009 basketball sea-
son, which begins in November,
should turn out to better than last
year's less than impressive sea-
son.
For one thing, the Tigers want
to avenge losses to Glades Day
and Pahokee - they lost twice to
both teams.
Most importantly, Clewiston
wants to have a chance to com-
pete in the Class 4A basketball
tournament, which didn't happen
due to not qualifying as one of the
top two teams in their district last
year.
The team will likelyfbe made
up of underclassmen, which
include upcoming juniors Dem-
etrius Allen, Timothy Jackson and
Hurley Johnson.
Top newcomers will feature
Trevor Jackson, Ravin Lee and
Derrious Reed.
But for this season, the top
two athletes may end up being

the upcoming senior twins, John
and Jonathan Williams.
Both are expected to provide
the leadership for the program
and could be the faces of the
team.
"The kids just came out to


the camp this summer and had a
great time," Lee said. "They love
basketball, so it helped them play
together as team.
"We're looking forward to
our upcoming basketball season,
which I think will be a great suc-


cess," Lee said optimistically.
The summer camp was held
at the Clewiston High School in-
door basketball court.

New fishing rules in effect



for Lake Okeechobee


The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) reminds the public about
new Lake Okeechobee freshwa-
ter fishing rules. The rules went
into effect on July 1.
Largemouth bass in Lake
Okeechobee must be 18 inches
or greater in total length to be
harvested. Anglers can keep only
one bass 22 inches or greater in
total length as part of their daily


bag limit. Also, a new rule estab-
lishes a 10-inch minimum length
for black crappie on the lake. Bag
limits remain unchanged.
Sampling over the last few
years has shown a decline in the
numbers of small largemouth
bass and black crappie.
"The new size limits protect
younger largemouth bass and
black crappie from being harvest-
ed," said Jon Fury, FWC freshwa-


ter fisheries biologist. "The new
rules also reduce pressure on the
current populations."
The Commission approved
the new rules in February, after
several public workshops.
Violating fish and wildlife
rules is illegal. To report viola-
tions, please call the Wildlife
Alert Hotline at 1-888-404-FWCC
(3922).

Two pure athletes going at it
Pahokee's Nu'keese Richardson, widely considered as one of the best athletes in the na-
tion, locks down wide receiver Dennis Hall in a pass coverage drill last week. Richardson,
who is a wide receiver and quarterback, may also see some time as a defensive back this
season.


Focused on the opponent
Fort Myers PAL boxer Wisner Desmaret, 19, appeared ready and focused on defeating his
opponent, Palm Bay's Isaac Bermudez. Here, Wisner practices with his coach, Larry Willis,
for his bout during the July 19 boxing show - which he actually won convincingly.


Hailing from Port St. Lucie
Coached by Bill Corbett and Byron Zamora Sr., the Port St. Lucie (PSL) PAL boxing team
finished with a 1-1 record at the July 19 boxing show, held in Pahokee. The boxers consist
of, in alphabetical order: Jesus Diaz, Jacob Gustaf, Kevin Luna, Byran Zamora and Byron
Zamora Jr. For more photos from the show, please visit http://photos.newszap.com.

I-vf


Everyone in God's church is a Saint


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
The book of Ephesians opens
with these words "Paul, an apos-
tle Of Jesus Christ by the will of
God, to all the SAINTS which are
at Ephesus, and to the faithful in
Christ Jesus" (vs. 1).
Jude refers to the Christians as
"saints" when he wrote his well-
known, third verse, "Beloved,
when I give all diligence to write
unto you of the common salva-
tion, it was needful for me to write
unto you, and exhort you that he
should earnestly contend for the
faith which was once delivered
unto the SAINTS."
It is clear from reading the
New Testament that Christians
are saints.
But, as has been true of so
many other matters related to
Christianity, religion has confused
the minds of many concerning
the exact bearing and application
of the word "saint."
Catholics give that term to cer-
tain famous ones, after they are
dead.
As in the baseball world, cer-
tain ones are voted into the Hall of
Fame" after their playing days are
ended, so have Catholics through
the centuries canonized certain


ones as saints years after they ter-
minated their earthly works.
Those referred to as "saints" in
the New Testament were, in con-
trast to the Catholic practice, yet
living in the flesh, and the term
applied to each Christian - not a
mere few.
Proof: Paul commanded the
Roman brethren to distribute to
the necessity of the saints (Ro-
mans 12:13) - these were poverty-
stricken Christians; Paul instruct-
ed the Corinthian members to
settle their differences before the
saints and not before governmen-
tal tribunals (I Cor. 6:1) - before
the members of the church; Phi-
lippians 4:22 says, "All the saints
salute you, chiefly they that are of
Caesar's household" - people liv-
ing on earth.
It is not uncommon to hear
people refer to "St. Matthew" or
"St. Peter" or "St. John" or "St.
Paul."
Yes, these were all saints, but
so were Aquila and Priscilla and
Dorcas and Apollos and Onesi-
phorusand Rhoda and Epaphras,
and so are those who are in the
congregation of our day.
Many of our words come to us
in families.
For instance "sing" is the act;
"singer" is the one performing
the act; "songs" are what we


sing; "singspiration" is a service
of singing.
In the same way, the Greek
language had a family of words
which will help us understand
what "saint" means.
"Hagioi" is the noun "saints";
Hhegios" is the adjective "holy";
"Hagiasmos" is the noun "holi-
ness"; and "hagiadzo" is the verb
"hallow" or "sanctify."
From this study, it can be seen
that a saint is one who is holy or
set apart to God.
Some of the so-called Holiness
groups have been taught that
a Christian can be so holy as to
need no mercy from God, he be-
ing able to live so holy that he has
no need of God's forgiveness.
This position is mostly based
upon a misinterpretation of cer-
tain verses in I John, which may
sound like teaching the possibility
of sinless-perfection, but which
when taken with other passages
in I John - such as I John 1:8, 10
and I John 2:1-2 - boil down to
mean that a Christian does no fol-
low the life of sin - in fact is very
much involved in being one of
God's saints or God's holy ones.
But, even after we do all that
the Lord commands, we are still
to say, "We are unprofitable ser-
vants" (Luke 17:10); we are still
to say, "Father, have mercy upon


To be sanctified or a saint in-
volves two things: 1. being set
apart from sin, and 2. being set
apart to God.
There are many passages that
teach these two sides of being
saints of God.
Here are a few of them: "De-
nying ungodliness and worldly
lusts, we should live soberly,
righteously, and godly" (Titus
2:12); "Reckon ye also yourselves
to be dead indeed unto sin, but
alive unto God" (Romans 6:13);
"Abhor that which is evil; cleave
to that which is good" (Romans
12:9), and "Present your bodies
a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable
unto God...Be not conformed to
this world" (Romans 12:1-2).
One becomes "sanctified" or
a "saint" when he: 1.Hears the
Gospel of Jesus Christ. (Romans
10:17) 2. Believes the Gospel.
(Mark 16:15-16) 3.Repents of Sin.
(Luke 13:0, Acts 17:30-31). 4. Con-
fesses faith in Christ. (Acts 8:37;
Romans 10:9-10). 4.Submits to be
baptized (immersed) in water for
the remission sins to receive the
gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:38,
8:36-39; Romans 6:3-5).
Such an one becomes a Chris-
tian and is added to the Lord's
Church. (Acts 2:41, 47).

How people come to Christ


By Brian Hamrick, pastor
First Baptist Church,
Clewiston
I appreciate Pastor Jackie
Miller in a number of ways as a
man of great Christian convic-
tion, and also of his utilization of
church history to make his point
in his article last week, dealing
with Charles Finney and Christian
conversion.
I am confident Pastor Miller
would agree with me that every
Christian should be familiar with
Charles Finney, his methods, and
impact, not only on church his-
tory, but American history.
Pastor Miller's article has
prompted me, to put forth anoth-
er explanation for understanding
Christian conversion.
Quoting Mr. Finney, he wrote,
"There is the anxious seat, come
out and avow your determination
to be on the Lord's side... It (Bap-
tism) held the precise place that
the anxious seat does now, as a
public manifestation of their de-
termination to be Christian."
Pastor Miller went on to quote
opponents of the anxious seat as
having to substitute for it, accord-
ing to Finney, or else revival could
not occur.


Neither Pastor Miller nor Mr.
Finney explained why this was
necessary. Professor Dod of
Princeton commented on Finney
substituting the anxious seat for
baptism by saying, "Though he
supposes that the anxious seat
occupies 'the precise place' that
baptism did, we can by no means
consent to receive it as an equiva-
lent.
Baptism was, indeed, a test
of character, since obedience or
disobedience was exercised in
view of a divine command; but
the anxious seat cannot operate
thus, except by arrogating to itself
a similar authority."
Here's where I am with this.
Open the Bible.
Turn to Acts 2.
Peter preaches the Pentecost
sermon about the Lordship of the
crucified Jesus.
God convicts people's hearts-
in fact, the text says they were cut
to the heart.
Then they ask, "What must
we do?" And Peter says, "Repent
and be baptized."
Do we really need to add to
the Biblical example of evange-
lism for the conversion of men?
I greatly appreciate Finney's
(and Miller's) desire to have peo-


pie express faith publicly.
Amen, and amen.
You will not find me espousing
any "secret Christian" philosophy-
the Christian life is thoroughly
public. The question is, how must
we apply it?
How was it applied in the
Word of God?
The words "anxious seat"
don't even appear in Scripture-
which requires us to be careful of
whether or not we should accept
such methodology.
We must beware the danger
of hastily pronouncing someone
a Christian, which is where the
anxious seat often leads us.
The great evangelist George
Whitefield explained, "I am glad
you know when persons are justi-
fied. It is a lesson I have not yet
learnt. There are so many stony
ground hearers, that receive the
Word with joy, that I have deter-
mined to suspend my judgments
till I know the tree by its fruits... I
cannot believe they are converts
till I see fruit brought forth. It will
do converts no harm to keep
them a little back; it will never do
a sincere soul any harm."
Finally, of a historical note:
somehow, the church has thrived,
spread, and communicated the


Gospel for over 1,800 years before
Mr. Finney began his works.
How ever did people become
Christians without the anxious
seat?
How did the First Great Awak-
ening ever happen a century ear-
lier? It's because the Christian's
evangelism is much simpler than
adding in a "come to the front" as
though it is necessary for conver-
sion.
Our message is unchanged:
preach the Gospel.
If we preach the Gospel, the
Holy Spirit will work in people's
hearts, and some will be saved.
It may not be as fast as we
like.
We might not win the entire
world for Christ. We might not
see our country re-Christianized.
But we must preach the Gos-
pel, and we must make sure our
methodology is simple and re-
duces possibilities of confusion.
Fellow Christians, join with me
in preaching the Gospel and in
praying for the souls of our city.
Clewiston needs true spiritual
revival more than anything else.
Woe to us if we do not preach the
Gospel!


Damocles; It is a hanging sword


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. d.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
"There's something hanging
over our heads!" Yes, with the
announcement of the sale of the
sugar company, many people are
worried about what may be hang-
ing over them. There is a legend
from antiquity about "the Sword
of Damocles."
He was a person who sought
favor with the rich and powerful
in the 4th century BC. One day
he was invited to sit in the place
of the ruler at a feast, Dionysius
II was usually the high table and
Damocles gloated in the luxuri-
ous food and service until he
looked up. There, over his head
and hanging by a single horse-
hair, was a word. He lost his ap-
petite and quickly left the table.
The "sword" hangs over many.
For Damocles, a change in loca-
tion brought relief. For many, the
change is not as easy.
Sometimes it is knowing about
a disease "in remission," for oth-
ers it is the knowledge that lay-
offs are likely to come, for others
the realization that a family may
be breaking up. Things seem to
go along well and suddenly..! In
my career, I've had many people
come and tell me "Ain't it awful!"
And I can usually agree. Then, I
ask if there were any signs along
the way that might have foreshad-
owed what was coming. Some-
times, thinking back, I have heard
"Well, there was the time when..."
or "Now that you mention it, I re-


member..." I make a mental note
about early intervention, before
the crisis hits and the sword falls.
I remember visiting a woman in
a cottage on a river at the end of
a country road; well-manicured
grounds, a three-car garage and
ship, everything inside new and
spotless in the best of condition
and with the latest of appliances;
but there was a "For Sale" sign in
the front yard.
I asked "Do you mind my ask-
ing why you're wanting to sell
this place?" It certainly seemed
to be an idyllic setting for me, or
so I thought. She answered "Yes,
it took 45 minutes to get an am-
bulance for my husband." That
was a sufficient sign of a sword
hanging over the head of anybody
who lived there, and it caused me
to change my mind about some-
thing that seemed so perfect. The
sugar company sale has some
"unknowns" yet to be resolved.
The likelihood is that there will
be some time before the impact
comes home, as well it may be
anticipated. Swords hanging over
people's heads are not new.
Some of the best advice about
what to do when things are in
doubt and the possibility of major
changes at any moment looms,
comes from St. Paul. The early
Church was persecuted and con-
tinually attacked; the faithful lived
with many swords hanging over
them. Paul wrote to the Ephe-
sians "Look carefully, then, how
you walk, not as unwise men
but as wise, making the most of
time, because the days are evil


(Ephesians 5:15-16." Whatever
time there was before their world
came crashing down on the faith-
ful was to be "redeemed," used to
strengthen fellowship, to grow in
depth, to develop the skills need-
ed to survive, to plan for the future
and then build on those plans.
The tent maker became an
evangelist, but he had a skill to ap-
ply should the need arise. Once,
I went from a very large church
to a small mission that had only
recently come into existence.
Suddenly, I had much more time
than before, and I asked one of
my senior clergy neighbors how
best to use it. He advised me to
"do something that I had wanted
to do or dreamed about doing,
because the next call will be to a
larger, busier church."
I spent my nights in school
working on a graduate degree
while there; there was nothing
on television really worth watch-
ing anyway. It meant some travel
hours, studying for tests and read-
ing in spare moments, writing pa-
pers late in the evening and giving
up leisure time by getting ready
for tests. What I gathered up
opened doors to ministries and
opportunities that were special-
ized, and the chance to minister
in new and more helpful ways. It
opened the paths to further train-
ing opportunities and a fascinat-
ing and exciting career.
The swords hanging over the
life and ministry were there from
time to time, but there were al-
ways new places to explore and
new opportunities available. The


signs had been read and the time
had been redeemed. Paul's mes-
sage to "get busy' seems to have a
place with us today. It has carried
others and myself through in the
past; it will carry us all through in
the days to come.

Nubbin Slough advances the Everglades


Improvements
restore wetlands on
former dairy lands

Okeechobee County-The
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) has completed
wetlands restoration on the site of
a former dairy operation, return-
ing dry pasture to wetlands and
increasing stormwater treatment
near Nubbin Slough, a tributary
that feeds into Lake Okeechobee.
"This effort is an example of
how we are successfully reviving
natural lands in South Florida,"
said Jerry Montgomery, SFWMD
Governing Board representing
Glades, Highlands, Okeechobee,


Orange, Osceola and Polk coun-
ties.
"Several carefully designed
projects can restore a large, well-
drained agricultural site to a thriv-
ing tract of Everglades wetlands."
The restoration project in-
cluded plugging farm ditches at
the 435-acre District-owned 'site,
filling in old ponds and removing
abandoned buildings to re-create
historic wetland conditions along
Nubbin Slough.
These improvements will in-
crease water storage and reten-
tion time, and improve water
quality by aiding phosphorus re-
moval.
Over time, legacy phosphorus
currently locked into soils and


phosphorus in storm water run-
off will be removed by grasses
that will be harvested from the
former dairy pastures.
District scientists estimate
that these combined efforts will
remove about 380 kilograms of
phosphorus each year from the
local wetland system.
The project is one compo-
nent of the landmark Northern
Everglades and Estuaries Protec-
tion Program, which promotes a
comprehensive, interconnected
watershed approach to protect-
ing Lake Okeechobee, the Caloo-
sahatchee River and Estuary and
the St. Lucie River and Estuary.
Expanding the Lake Okeecho-
bee Protection Act in 2007 rec-


ognized the importance and
connectivity of the entire ecosys-
tem-from the Kissimmee Chain
of Lakes south to Florida Bay.
The primary goal of the law is
to restore reaches of the natural
system north of Lake Okeecho-
bee by addressing not only water
quality but also the quantity, tim-
ing and distribution of water to
the natural system.

garding the Northern Everglades
and Estuaries Protection Program,
