Claims of rape end with murder charge


21-year-old runs over one of
her alleged attackers,
killing him
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
Last week, hours before she had agreed
to turn herself in to the Hendry County Sher-
iff's Office to face charges of first degree
murder, Amber Marie Lee claimed her in-
nocence.
A Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) report
claims that Lee was behind the wheel when
her car ran over a man in Harlem in Decem-
ber. She defends herself and says that hav-
ing been a victim of a crime just minutes
before, she was not in her right mind when
she struck the man shouting to her from the


side of the road that
night.
If she could re-
live that night, she
tells The Clewiston
News, she would
have tolerated the
thing that made
her drive to Hendry
County at two in the
morning had she
known what was go-
Amber Lee. ing to happen when
she did.
I'm sorry for his
family. I really am, but there's nothing I can
do to take it back," she said.
Forty dollars
Amber is 21-vears-old. She is the mother


of a three-year- old child, and is seven months
pregnant. Far from forgetting the Dec. 4 in-
cident, Amber was stunned to find out this
week that she would be going to jail -- that
an FHP report and subsequent investigation
had resulted in a warrant for her arrest in the
man's death.
Yes, she ran over the man, but the entire
story is not reflected within the scope of the
FHP report, she swears.
The way she tells it, Amber's home was
without power on Dec. 3 and she was des-
perate. That single event would trigger the
chain of events that led to the death of 32-
year-old Timothy Cornelius Baulkman.
"I had no water and no power. It was two
o'clock in the morning and I was hot and I
had tried to deal with it," she said. Eventu-
ally she told her boyfriend, Anthony Varnell,
23, to sell his car's CD player for $40 so they


could to rent a motel room in South Bay.
The two went to Harlem, where accord-
ing to Amber, Anthony had friends.
They met with "Bimbo," a friend An-
thony had gone to school with, but then an-
other man entered the picture. Saying that
he could sell the CD player for them, he in-
vited yet another man, and they both were
allowed inside the car.
"He told us to cool down a little bit and he
got out and told us this other guy was gonna
get change," Lee explained. "Next thing, he
came back and said the stores were closed,
we gotta go to this man's house and get the
change."
The man reportedly told Amber to pull
off the road and cut off the lights. As soon as
she did, she said he reached from the back-
seat and started choking Amber's boyfriend.

The selfless struggle of a
Clewiston mother
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
Judy Vann remembers waking once and finding an
older man in one of her upstairs bedrooms. She
had just woken up and expected to find her kids,
her foster children, but not a man, and much less an
older man.
"Who are you? What are you doing upstairs?" she
asked.
Ms. Vann had built up a reputation as a kindly care-
taker who whenever she could, would take in children
who came from broken homes, or had lost their par-
ents. Some of them had been abused, and others simply
had no one else left in the world.
But here was a puzzler -- a middle-aged man in her
home.
She set out to solve the mystery.
'Mom.'
Despite not giving birth herself, she never married, Ms.
Vann has been called "mom" by more children than she
can remember. It isn't that her memory is frail and that is

Community Heroes Day
Clewiston summer camps were visited by Clewiston Police, Fire and
Paramedics departments. They gave the children walkthroughs of their
vehicles, demonstrated the equipment they use on a daily basis and
answered all the questions the children had. They spoke on the impor-
tance of their jobs and posed for photos with the children. The day was
an overall success.

Hendry School District takes questions


Editor's Note: District leaders will be answer
ing questions sent in to The Clewiston News by
local parents on a wide variety of issues affect
ing the Hendry County school system. Admin-
istrators have pledged to answer openly and
without reservation.

This week's question: 'As a grandmother
of a child who has shown high aptitude skills,
my question is: What does the Hendry County
School District offer to gifted children? How do
I ensure that his learning caters to his special
skills? On the same note, what does the district
offer to children with disabilities?"

Jodi Bell
Hendry County School District director of
federal programs
The Hendry County School System has mul-
tiple ways of providing an enriched experience
for students. To begin with, classroom instruc-
tion is differentiated to include instruction for
students who are working on level, students
who are working below level, and students who
are showing skills that are above level. Teach-
ers accomplish this by providing students with
materials that are on level, above level, or be-


low level, but are still reflecting the topics and
benchmarks that are being taught.
The school system has a program for gifted
students that provides experiences that extend
thinking and reasoning skills to a higher level.
Students are placed in the gifted program
through a referral to the Exceptional Student
Education Department and subsequent testing
that meets qualification criteria.
After-school programs include programs to
assist struggling students, and at some schools,
programs to extend student thinking and rea-
soning in math and science. All schools have
some form of computer-assisted instruction that
allows students to work on benchmarks and
content materials that are at their level. If you go
into a computer lab and look at the assignments
that are being completed by students, you will
find multiple levels within one classroom. Ac-
celerated Reader gives students opportunities to
read and take tests on material that is their own
instructional level.
At the secondary level, there are multiple Ad-
vanced Placement courses that are offered that
will allow students to receive college credit after
a passing score is achieved on the national test
which is administered in May. Along with these


AP courses, there are opportunities for students
to earn college credit in Dual Enrollment courses
through Edison State College. Because these are
college level courses, parents can expect that
college level expectations will be part of the cur-
riculum. These expectations could include ad-
ditional reading assignments over the summer
to prepare for the advanced level course, ad-
ditional written reports, and daily assignments
that will challenge the thinking of students.
Teachers and school personnel would like
parents to partner with them in encouraging
students to accept the challenges of a more rig-
orous curriculum of studies. Parent can partner
by asking questions of school personnel about
the expectations that come with advanced
placement and dual enrollment classes. They
can further assist by helping their children be
accountable for extra reading assistance, report
completions, and studying that accompanies
courses that are college level.

Next week's question: "I'm concerned with
the level of exercise that children in our area
elementary schools are getting. My child has a
single 40-minute P.E. class per week. Can you
explain the reason for this?"

Local pastor and his wife share 50 years


By Toni Joseph
Special to INI Florida
After dating for six months, two young
people eloped to South Shore, KY, to conm-
mit themselves to each other "for better, for
worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and
in health." The date was July 30, 1960. Fifty
years ago.
Seems like a lifetime ago when you look
at the date; but it was only a moment ago
when you witness the love still between
these two "young people."
The pastor of Lake Harbor Community
Methodist Church (29 W Corkscrew Blvd,
Lake Harbor), R. Rod Ruby and wife Lida
were honorees of an anniversary celebra-
tion given at Lake Harbor C.G -.111 ini 1i, li,

vice.
The bride's sister, Carol Damron, sang
Lida's favorite song as her special gift, and
their daughter, Kathy Ruby, read the scrip-
ture, 1 Corinthians 13, 1-13, Pastor Rod's fa-
vorite bible verse.
After the service, guests gathered in the
fellow- ship hall for a sit-down

memory lane. Letters from friends and fam-
ily containing memories from days gone by
were read, with lots of laughter shared by
the guests.
Each of the beautifully decorated tables
contained a photo from the travels of Pastor
Rod and Lida. Stories were told about each
photo, ranging from the styles of the 60s, to
the time they joined the circus, to their 40th
wedding anniversary. It was quite an array
of photographic history.
Pastor Rod sang one of his favorite songs
to his bride, his voice sometimes cracking
from emotion. The bride and groom cut
their tiered anniversary cake which was
shared among the guests. This was the first
wedding cake they ever had.
The congregation presented Pastor Rod
and Lida each with a stained glass frame to
be displayed in the church's windows de-
picting their individual contributions to the
church. Hers being music and involvement
with all areas as needed. His being as future
author, pastor, leader and friend.
This writer was one of the guests, having
only met Pastor Rod and Lida a few months
ago, attending services with a friend. The
love and fellowship among the friends and
family, the love between these two special
people, is something I will hold onto for a
very long time.
These two "young people" are the epito-
me of the commitment of marriage Love is
patient, love is kind, love rejoices, love pro-
tects, love trusts, love hopes, love preserves,
love never fails!

Sales tax holiday is around the corner


Exemption will help reduce
the cost of buying school
supplies
By Juan Lopez
INI Florida
From 12:01 a.m. Friday, Aug. 13th till
12 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 15, 2010, there
will be a sales tax exemption in ef-
fect.
This sales tax exemption will apply to
the purchase of books, clothing and certain
school supplies.
To be exact, it will apply to every book
or item of clothing that is selling for $50 or
less and to each eligible school supply that is
selling for $10 or less.
However, the exemption does not apply


to books or to any item
of clothing selling for
more than $50, or to any
school supply item sell-
ing for more than $10.
The exemption will
still apply no matter how
many items are sold on
the same invoice to a
customer.
Coupons can also be
applied to any purchase
to reduce the overall
cost but that will remain
at the discretion of the
seller.
Some examples of what the sales tax ex-
emption applies to are:
*"Book" means a set of printed sheets
bound together and published in a volume.
The term "book" does not include newspa-


pers, magazines, other
periodicals, or audio
books.
Books are different
from periodicals in that
books, in addition to the
above, are also generally
identified with an Inter-
national Standard Book
Number (ISBN), while
periodicals are dated
and generally have an is-
sue number, but not an
ISBN.
"Clothing" means
any article of wearing
apparel, including all footwear (except skis,
swim fins, roller blades, and skates) intended
to be worn on or about the human body.
However, "clothing" does not include
watches, watchbands, jewelry, umbrellas,

USDA announces deadline to apply for payments


USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Admin-
istrator Jonathan Coppess today announced
that producers have until Thursday, Sept. 30,
2010, to submit an application for payment
under the 2008 Supplemental Revenue As-
sistance Payments (SURE) Program. SURE
provides financial assistance for crop pro-
duction and or quality losses due to a natural
disaster.
"We want producers to be aware of this


deadline so they are certain to visit their FSA
county office to file a 2008 SURE program
payment application no later than Septem-
ber, 30, 2010," said Coppess.
"It is important to finish the current
2008 SURE program sign-up because the
authority for the Recovery Act supplement
for payment benefits expires at the end of
the current fiscal year and the Department
of Agriculture will then start the 2009 SURE


sign-up application process."
FSA began accepting and processing
2008 SURE program applications in January
2010, and the American Recovery and Rein-
vestment Act of 2009 (RecoveryAct) allowed
for a one-time increase in the calculation of
2008 SURE payments that are filed by Sept.
30, 2010. Producers who do not file a 2008
SURE program payment application by Sept.
30, 2010, will not be considered eligible for


2008 SURE program payments.
Producers are encouraged to file an ap-
plication for 2008 SURE payments regard-
less of whether they think they may or may
not qualify. An electronic SURE program
payment calculator and additional informa-
tion regarding the SURE program is located
at http://www.fsa.usda.gov/FSA/sure, or pro-
ducers can contact their local county FSA
office.

Moye Lynwood Bishop
CLEWISTON Moye Lynwood Bishop, fifth
generation Floridian, born in Gainesville, Fla.,
on March 12, 1921, to parents Ralph Moye and
Mary Daughtry Bishop, passed away on July 28,
2010.
His parents and grandfather were pioneers of
the Glades area and in his early childhood he
lived in Sebring and Lake Harbor. While his fa-
ther started sugar farming, Moye at age 12, with
the help of his mother, started an egg farm and
sold eggs around the lake every day before
school.
During high school one of his many jobs was
managing a saw mill operation in LaBelle on
the current Lykes property. He graduated from
Pahokee High School's class of 1941 and went
to the University of FL for a short time before
transferring to the Embry Riddle School of Avia-
tion. Here he became a Master Mechanic of Air-
craft. He was immediately employed by Pan
American World Airways during WWII in the
development of their freight efforts throughout
Central and South America. He later became a
manager of the Belem Air Station in Brazil and
overhauled allied bombers for the war effort.
After the war he came home to the Glades
and worked for the family lumber yard and con-
crete business. On July 25, 1948 he married
Marianne Jones and became a grower for US
Sugar, harvesting his first crop in 1949. Moye
was a grower for US Sugar until his passing.
He was a member and past President of both
the Lion's Club and Clewiston Chamber of
Commerce, member of the Elks Club, and
served on many agricultural boards and or-
ganizations.
He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Mari-
anne Jones Bishop; son, M. Lynwood "Woody"
Bishop Jr (Rosalind), West Palm Beach; grand-
sons M. Lynwood Bishop III (Kori), Atlanta, Ga.,
and Taylor Ashmore Bishop, West Palm Beach;

Restoration momentum


continues with Agreement


Pilot project to help
preserve clean water for
Everglades National Park

Building on historic agreements to ad-
vance construction on Everglades resto-
ration projects, the South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD) Govern-
ing Board and the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers recently approved another key
Project Partnership Agreement to test
technology for preserving clean water in
Everglades National Park. If proven effec-
tive, technology developed
during the pilot project
will significantly benefit
Everglades restoration and
water quality improvement
efforts in the park as well as
beyond its boundaries.
"Working with our fed-
eral partners, the State of
Florida and the District have
been leaders in developing
the tools and technology
to restore America's Ever-
glades," said SFWMD Gov-
erning Board Chairman
Eric Buermann. "This pilot
project promises to signifi-
cantly advance restoration
efforts in Everglades Na-
tional Park and will provide
valuable knowledge to benefit the broad
effort to revive the River of Grass."
Retaining clean water in the Everglades
requires controlling and managing seep-
age of water from the wetlands. This is
integral to success of the Comprehensive
Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP). The
L-31 North (L-30) Seepage Management
pilot project will help to identify the appro-
priate technology that will prevent clean
water from seeping out of Everglades Na-
tional Park through South Florida's porous
underground rock layers. A second goal is
to help retain clean water in Water Conser-
vation Area 3B in Miami-Dade County
an area of the remnant Everglades, which
has the highest seepage rate in the area.
"The pilot project was developed with
extensive input from the public and nu-
merous stakeholders," said Ken Ammon,
P.E., SFWMD Deputy Executive Director
- Everglades Restoration and Capital Proj-
ects. "Experience gained from this project
will have far-reaching benefits and moves
us closer to achieving restoration goals to
protect the Everglades and South Florida's
environment."
The pilot project will test two structural
seepage reduction technologies specifi-
cally, steel sheet pile and a slurry wall -
while also testing the ability to seasonally
manage seepage flows through pumping
operations to create a "hydraulic barrier."
"Reducing seepage from the Everglades
is vital to its restoration, but accomplishing
this is no easy task. It's not simply a mat-
ter of installing a wall that stops all easterly


flow out of the park," said Stu Appelbaum,
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jacksonville
District Deputy for Restoration Program
Management. "We have to manage and
control for variable flow rates via a system
of features. That's why this pilot test is so
important. We're committed to protecting
and restoring the Everglades, so we will
look at how different strategies perform
before we proceed with larger scale imple-
mentation of any strategy."
The slurry wall technology is similar
to the technology now being used by the
Corps to reduce seepage from portions of
the Herbert Hoover Dike surrounding Lake


Okeechobee.
The Project Partnership Agreement
allows the Corps to award a contract for
construction and testing of the pilot proj-
ect, at an estimated cost of approximately
$9.3 million using federal stimulus funding.
The effort was also made possible by the
landmark August 2009 Master Agreement
between the SFWMD and the Corps.
Laying the groundwork for Everglades
restoration for decades to come, the Mas-
ter Agreement serves as an umbrella ac-
cord between the state and federal part-
ners that governs all CERP projects. In
turn, each CERP project requires a Project
Partnership Agreement. The Master Agree-
ment was also an essential step necessary
for the Corps to begin restoration construc-
tion with an initial infusion in 2009 of ap-
proximately $115 million in congressional
appropriations.
The Comprehensive Everglades Res-
toration Plan (CERP) is a framework for
restoring, protecting and preserving the
water resources of central and southern
Florida. CERP is a 50-50 partnership be-
tween the State of Florida and the federal
government. The State of Florida and the
South Florida Water Management District
have invested approximately $2.4 billion
toward this effort, including approximately
$300 million in construction. Through June
30, 2010, 60 percent or approximately
234,853 acres of the estimated lands
needed to implement CERP have been ac-
quired.

U.S. Sugar's railroad recycling attracts film crew


Railcars were in service for
more than 40 years

Judy Sanchez
U.S. Sugar
Two sugarcane railcars were totally de-
molished in about two hours as U.S. Sugar's
railroad recycling efforts were filmed for a
documentary that will air internationally.
The scrap metal and steel from the railcars
will be transported to an industrial mega-
shredder at the Port of Tampa for further
processing, eventually becoming new steel
products.
A crew from SSP productions, an inde-
pendent production company based in Or-
lando, Florida, was contracted to document
the demolition of the two railcars along the
local company's railroad siding on Francisco
Street.
Onesteel Recycling Tampa, which has
the mega-shredder, was integral to the film-
ing process.
"Recycling makes good business sense,
not just good environmental policy," said
Judy Sanchez, director of corporate commu-
nications. "U.S. Sugar has always scrapped
and recycled railcars that can no longer be
repaired or rebuilt and used for hauling
cane.
We remove any parts that can be re-used
in our railroad operations and then sell what
remains for scrap."
In addition to railcars, U.S. Sugar's rail-
road also recycles railroad track, spikes and


in length and customized for U.S. Sugar's
internal industrial railroad that transports
harvested sugarcane from U.S. Sugar's cane
fields to its Clewiston sugar manufacturing
facility.
A major part of the boxcar customiza-
tion is the construction of three swinging
side doors for ease in off-loading sugarcane
at the mill.
A local demolition and scrapping com-
pany from LaBelle, Ashley and Sons, per-
formed the demolition. The scrapped ma-
terials will be further cut down at Ashley &
Sons' local facility and trucked to the Port
of Tampa, where the steel and other metals
will be separated and melted down.
This material is sent to steel mills from
Jacksonville to Pittsburg where it is manu-
factured into new steel plate, structure, pipe
and other products. This recycling process
takes less than 60 days from start to finish.
According to owner Ashley George, the
Caterpillar 322C Shear is able to make pre-
cise cuts in the steel railcars and tear them
down into manageable pieces.
The large machine also uses its steel
shears or pincers to stack the metal pieces
into neat piles for later removal.
As shown in the attached demolition
photos, Car #281 was built in 1929 by the
MAGOR car builders of New York.
This car was made from a special design
submitted by U.S. Sugar. The car design en-
ables the entire railcar to be tipped on its
side with three doors that swing open to ef-
ficiently dump the sugarcane.
About 40 years ago, a design change ex-

Complete demolition of the 20-ton railcars took less than an hour each. Result-
ing scrap metal will be shredded, melted down and recycled into new steel
products.


Prices for scrap metal, which fluctuate
based on the scrap metals market, were cur-
rently running about $220/ton.
The axels and wheels or "trucks" as they
are known in the railroad industry are re-
cycled within U.S. Sugar's internal railroad
operations.
The trucks from cars #281 and #531
were newer, roller-bearing wheels, so they
will be used to upgrade railcars still using


older, friction-bearing wheels. A new set of
trucks currently cost about $4,600.
"It was sad to see a 60-year old railcar
with such history behind it cut to pieces in
less than an hour, but it also was exciting
to know that the metal will be recycled and
perhaps return to U.S. Sugar in a new form
somewhere down the road," Sanchez said.

U.S. Sugar railcars #521 (circa 1941) and #281 (circa 1929) are being taken
out of service on U.S. Sugar's internal sugarcane transportation railroad. The
axels and wheels will be removed and the two cars demolished and the materi-
als recycled.


ties.
Sanchez said that U.S. Sugar's railroad
has been in operation since the late 1920s
and its recycling efforts go back just about
as far.
Most of U.S. Sugar's fleet of 950 sugar-
cane railcars already had been recycled from
older boxcars that were retired from service
on the country's major railroads.
The boxcars are cut down about 15 feet


tended the top half of the railcars to hold
more cane due to the planned conversion
from hand cutting to machine.
Car #531 also was built to U.S. Sugar's
specifications in 1941 by MAGOR. It went
through the same overhaul and top exten-
sion as Car #281.
Sanchez said sugarcane railcars typically
weigh 20 tons each and net approximately
15 tons of scrap materials.

Local 4-H members participate in state legislature


Youth learn valuable
lessons about government
in mock legislature

Sonja C. Crawford
Extension Agent II, 4-H/Livestock
More than 200 4-H youth from across the
state traveled to Tallahassee to participate in
a week-long mock Legislative session held
at the State Capital.
Andy McAvoy, Matthew Ruch, Sara
Sutterfield, Ashley White, and Ethan
Zimmerly were among the Hendry County
Leadership/Citizenship 4-H Club members
who attended Florida 4-H Legislature. These
club members began preparing for the week
long event in February.
With both a House and a Senate in ses-
sion, teen legislators, lobbyists and reporters
debated a variety of issues and learned how
the government works.
The Florida 4-H Legislature conducted
business with an acting governor, lieuten-
ant governor and cabinet. Veteran Hendry
County members played the role of Legis-
lators while the first year members learned
about lobbying.
All of the members did an excellent job
debating the issues. There were impressive
arguments both for and against many pro-
posed bills.
Sara Sutterfield acted as lobbyist. Mat-
thew Ruch participated on the State 4-H


Legislature Planning Committee that met
throughout the year.
Senator Ruch was the chairperson for
the Government Commerce and Transpor-
tation Committee as well as the Gold Party
Whip chairperson.
Andy McAvoy, Ashley White and Ethan
Zimmerly acted as Representatives. Rep-
resentative White received the "Hot Sauce
Award" for the passing of the first bill during
the 2010 session. Representative Zimmerly
was nominated for the prestigious "Chris
Allen Award."
Nominations for the Chris Allen Award
are based on the knowledge of the individ-
ual as a Representative, Senator, Lobbyist,
or a Reporter.
The Florida 4-H Legislative Program is
an excellent opportunity for youth ages 14
to 18 (as of September 1 of the current 4-H
year) to learn how local, state, and federal
government works. Today's youth are to-
morrow's leaders.
If you are interested in becoming a
member of the 4-H Legislature Club, you
may contact the 4-H office at 863-674-4092
or 863-983-1598. The 4-H Legislature Club is
led by Mrs. Marsha Bechtel.
A big thank you goes out to Mrs. Bechtel
for the preparation and leadership provided
to these young adults.
4-H is an educational program that ser-
vices individuals and institutions that func-
tion without regard to race, color, sex, hand-
icap or national origin.

Study shows that smaller hospitals can do big things


Can provide safe, quality
surgical care comparable to
larger counterparts

Hendry Regional Medical Center
Can smaller hospitals provide the same
safe and high quality surgical care as larger
facilities? According to a study conducted
by the University of Louisville, the answer is
"yes."
"Smaller hospitals can provide a more
personal touch, a hometown feel where a
patient is not just a number," said Glenda
Wilson of Hendry Regional Medical Center.
Smaller, rural hospitals may be quicker
and more efficient at implementing surgi-
cal safety initiatives than their larger, urban
counterparts. These smaller facilities are
capable of providing a standard of surgical
care that is at par with major hospitals that
provide a comprehensive array of care ser-
vices, according to an 18-month series of
studies led by researchers from the Univer-
sity of Louisville Department of Surgery.
"The quality and standard of care in ru-
ral and small-town America is an impor-
tant issue that gets a lot of attention in the
mainstream media these days, and research
efforts to measure and enhance surgical
quality have largely omitted smaller town
hospitals that care for a very high proportion
of the American population," said Hiram C.


Polk, M.D., former chair of the University of
Louisville Department of Surgery, and the
Ben A. Reid, Sr. Professor of Surgery at the
University of Louisville (U of L). "These stud-
ies sought to address some of these previ-
ously unaddressed issues."
The results of these studies were pub-
lished in the July issue of the American Jour-
nal of Surgery.
The investigators used the surgical safety
tool "the expanded surgical time out" as a
template by which to collect their data, Polk
said. This is a method by which all partici-
pants in a surgical procedure, including, in
some cases, the patient, take a moment to
clarify critical details about the procedure
that is about to take place.
"The basic surgical time-out includes
identifying the correct patient, correct sur-
gery and correct site," said Susan Galandiuk,
M.D., professor of surgery at the U of L and
senior investigator on the first study, which
served to define the current culture regard-
ing surgical safety and quality initiatives.
"The expanded time-out looks at preopera-
tive timing and choice of antibiotics and dis-
continuation of postoperative prophylactic
antibiotics, additional criteria for diabetics or
other ill patients, or factors that come into
play if a surgery will last longer than two
hours, such as measuring core temperature,
monitoring blood glucose level and a clear
decision about continuing beta blocker
drugs postoperatively if they have been used


pre-operatively."
The availability of blood for transfusion
in a surgery and any special instruments
needed also were helpful to include on the
checklist, Galandiuk said.
The studies looked at how quickly the
smaller hospitals four in Kentucky and one
in Indiana adopted quality improvement
measures, as evidenced by the implementa-
tion of surgical time-out; whether surgical
specialists were committed to accepting the
quality and safety parameters outlined in the
expanded surgical time-out checklist; and
how the payment structure may affect qual-
ity and safety measures.
Major surgeries examined included hip
and knee replacements, hysterectomy, colon
resections, and hernia repairs. In all, 2,300
surgeries were examined. The researchers
found that all specialties had extremely high
rates of adherence to timely administration
of prophylactic antibiotics within the recom-
mended one hour before surgery.
"We also found that, although almost
one quarter to one third of patients were
awake during the surgical time-out, surgi-
cal time-out was implemented in more than
97 percent of all cases among the different


sub-specialties," Polk said. The researchers
also found that all specialties successfully
avoided hypothermia in most cases, and
gynecologists, especially, made appropriate
choices regarding antibiotics in a majority of
cases.
"Our research showed that clinicians in
these rural hospitals showed an extremely
high standard of care to their patients, equal
to that given at urban and tertiary counter-
parts," Polk said. "The hospitals' willingness
to commit to participating in these studies
with the goal of better patient care should be
commended as well."
Approximately 40 percent of Americans
get their surgical care in centers that are not
large, urban or tertiary care facilities and the
willingness and ability of these institutions
to implement quality and safety measures is
incredibly important, Polk said.
"These studies, looking at representative
sites in Kentucky and Indiana demonstrated
that these facilities can have the resources
necessary, human and otherwise, to provide
high quality, safe surgical care, and the com-
mitment to doing so," he said.

Religious Columns


Invisible Gifts
Rev. Samuel Thomas, Ph.D.
Saint Martin's Church
One of the members of the Church I
serve pointed out a change in translations,
when the revision of a newer credal state-
ment went from "visible and invisible" to
"seen and unseen."
It didn't seem like any major issue but
we got to talking
about it.
"Seen" re-
lates to things
that are tan-
gible, touch-
able, mate-
rial, within
the human
spectrum of
perception.


they are out
of sight; may-
be around
the corner or
around the t
world, but Rev Thomas.
they are still
there.
"Visible"
also means the same thing but "invisible"
has another meaning to it. There are many
things that are "invisible" and never will
be seen.
Take faith, happiness, love, hope, and on
and on; invisible but are every bit a part of
human experience and very and never to be
seen.
I began to think that the revisionists
succumbed to the trends in our "modern"



world; things have to be measurable or tan-
gible to have any meaning.
Of course, this is not so. One of the clergy
who followed me in a former Church appar-
ently had a rift with several members of the
congregation over something "seen."
The question arose whether a collection
plate should sit flat on the table attached to
the wall where it rested or be placed upright,
leaning against the wall and being more ver-
tical than horizontal.
I thought "Oh no, that's ridiculous! Take a
vote, for Heaven's sake and don't sweat the
small stuff!"
I met him later and his first words after
I introduced myself were "Do you want it
back?" My answer was in the negative but I
explained that it wasn't because I wouldn't
go back, it was because I was doing other
things in my life at that moment.
It was obvious; problems weren't about
a plate; "seen" or "unseen" but about lead-
ership style, matters of who decides what,
issues of something that was really "invis-
ible."
My successor pursued a career as a chap-
lain when he left that Church. The English
interpretation of Paul's Epistle to the Colos-
sians speaks of the Lord; "He is the image
of the invisible God, the firstborn over all
creation. For by Him all things were created:
visible and invisible... (chapter 1, verses 15-
16)."


There! It's more than just seen or un-
seen; the full richness of life, the many parts
of it we share that cannot be quantified, the
whole range of creation; God created these
things too.
Older translations are not always the best;
we learn from discoveries, the study of his-
tory and languages what was meant by the
words that are sometimes used in a different
context than they are today.
Likewise, each language has words that
have no equivalents in some other languag-
es and it takes some digging and searching
to find out what actually is meant.
It isn't necessarily that "older is better"
but thinking about what we mean. We don't
seem to do as much of that these days as our
ancestors did. We need to be respectful!

Final Chapters
Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Those were the times!
We could eat like a horse and not look
like one.
All of the school teachers were older than
we were, and
professional
athletes were
about the age
of our older
brothers. .
Life was
an open high-
way.
Then came
the subtle
hints of mor-
tality. The d
neig h bor -
hood kids call
you "Mister"
or "Ma'am." .
Your par-
ents start act- Pastor Hicks.
ing like your
children. Your
carpool asks you why you squint when you
read road signs.
And then there is the tell-tale mirror.
What was tight now sags. What once swung
now bounces.
Everything hurts when you wake up.
What doesn't hurt, doesn't work. The dawn-
ing of old age.
The first pages of the final chapter of our
life. And with every new pill we take, we
are reminded that old age is another pill we
have to swallow.
Ponce De Leon didn't find the Fountain of
Youth, and neither will we.
The calendar pages still turn, the clock
still ticks, and the body still gets older. So
what are we to do?
Just because we are near the top of the
hill doesn't mean we've passed our peak.
We need to dare to reclaim the enthusiasm
for life we had in our childhood. The wisest
are not the ones with the most years in their
lives, but the most life in their years.
Our final chapters can be our best. Our fi-
nal song can be our greatest. Our final works
can be our most magnificent.
Throughout the Scriptures, God's oldest


always seem to be first team material. Look
at Abraham and Sarah, Noah and Moses.
And there are many more. God uses the
chronologically gifted.
Remember Anna?
She was in her eighties when she prayed
for the Messiah and had enough vision to rec-
ognize him when He came. Speaking of vi-
sion, at the age of 95, J.C. Penny proclaimed,
"My eyesight might be getting weaker, but
my vision is increasing.
As we get older, our vision should be
getting better not our vision of earth and
earthly things, but our vision of heaven and
heavenly things.
Those who have spent their life look-
ing for heaven gain a skip in their step as it
draws closer. Age is a mile marker for them,
a gentle reminder that home has never been
so near.
Until that time, it would do us well to fol-
low the parting encouragement of Michelan-
gelo.
When Michelangelo died, a piece of
paper was found in his studio, a handwrit-
ten note to his apprentice: "Draw Antonio,
draw, and do not waste time."
Good advice. Time slips, days pass, years
fade.
Life ends.
What we came to do must be done while
there is time.
Let it not be said of us, "The harvest has
ended, the summer is past. And we are not
saved." (Jeremiah 8:20).

why she cannot remember, or because she
loved some more or some less, but because
there were simply too many children who
walked through her front door. If just for
brief moments, a day or maybe just a few
hours, they called the five-bedroom, three-
bathroom house on Osceola their home.
She had worked for HRS and the experi-
ence was enough to convince her to reach
out to children and, taken as a whole, she
may have cared for close to 50 kids in her
lifetime -- she is 65.
"I thought I could do a better job than
they (foster parents), were doing," she re-
members.
In the beginning adopting was difficult
because agencies did not consider a single
woman fit to adopt. The reasoning, she
came to understand, is that all children
should have a chance to have a mother
and a father. The few kids she would end
up adopting were through special arrange-
ments with their parents. Looking back at
that early hurdle, it may be difficult to imag-
ine why a child would need both.
"They call me on Father's Day," she says.
"I get calls from the kids all the time. 'Happy
Father's Day, mom!"
She started taking kids in as a young
woman in her late 20s. For a while she only
took in girls. Judy, the "shorthand-typing-
bookkeeping-type," nearly always knew
what to expect in the girls, but was so afraid


of rearing, or even momentarily caring for, a
boy that she avoided it at all costs.
"I didn't want boys. I wanted girls."
And given that life is long but memory is
short, it is curious to see the things that Ms.
Vann still remembers, and what she does
not.
"There was this one little boy. He was
13. He chased all over the yard for lizards. I
guess they didn't have lizards in Tennessee
where he was from. I just remember how
cute he was and I fell in love with him right
away. I don't remember the child's name,
but I think of him often."
Throughout her life, Judy had a recurring
dream. "In the dream, I would go out on the
front porch and there would be a baby for
me." It never quite happened that way, but
sometimes it felt like it. She knew that one
day she would have a baby girl. She even
knew the color of her hair, and that she
would be beautiful.
Seven years later a woman was going to
have a baby.
"I want you to have her," she told Ms.
Vann. "I know you're supposed to have
her."
"I know that, too," Ms. Vann told her.
A look back
Ms. Vann never married. She considers
this.
Why not? Simply because.
Most people are born, they go to school,
they ... "Get married, have kids and die," she
finishes the statement.
She didn't follow orthodoxy.
"I just never got married. Not that I didn't


want to at times. I had a couple of opportu-
nities. It just wasn't right, I guess."
And the discordant adjective "unmarried"
is somewhat deceiving, she insists.
"It means doing what you want to do
and being happy. I mean, I've never not had
somebody to go camping with. Usually, I've
had too many," she adds with a laugh.
Ms. Vann is retiring from her day job as
a State Farm agent -- a job her father held
before her.
"I've been with State Farm from the time
I was five," she says.
In fact she retired last week, taking most
of the week to say goodbye to her clients
and her friends who came in to provide well-
wishes on her well-earned retirement.
"So many people came in to tell me
thank you, but I'm the one who wanted to
thank them," she said.
Even in her professional life, she never
lost track of her willingness to help her fel-
low man.
"I try not to do anything for my benefit
that didn't benefit them. I try not to think of
it like, 'oh, well, if I do that, I'm going to lose
commission.'"
Now that she won't report to work, she
hopes to visit some of the children she's
cared for, and already has an itinerary and
contact list. She'll be hitting the road soon.
Even if she may not see them all, she
hopes that her children, all 40-plus of them,
will remember in simple terms that she truly
cared for them.
To remember, "that I was there when
they needed me, that I loved them and
helped them in any way that I could help


them but ... there's a point when they have
to help themselves."
Judy is happy. She's faced problems
and issues that other people, parents them-
selves, gave up on long ago. She's done so
willingly, without searching for some prize
on the other end. When she talks about the
children, she mentions that they have been
abused, or been victims of violence, but the
description is always fleeting.
To her, the children, when they come to
live with her, bare no mark of such atrocities,
although physically some may. The way she
spies a new child, the way she smiles when
she says hello to them, to some a smile that
for the first time in their short lives is not fol-
lowed by an ulterior pursuit, has the habit
of making them feel, for a day, a few hours,
and to the lucky few for years that their place
is with her.
That she does not see the scars on their
bodies is a slight achievement; that they
cease to see the scars themselves is remark-
able. "These people who abuse their kids,
why didn't they just give them to me?" she
asks. "Bring them to me. I will take care of
them."
And, regarding the man who had so con-
tentedly settled in her home, he had been
taken in by Ms. Vann's many children. They
had seen the man out somewhere, maybe
resting against a wall outdoors, or worse,
and had determined that "mom don't care
if you come stay with us."
She told it to them straight.
"Boys, boys, I'm not taking in old men.
Maybe a teenager, but I'm not taking in old
men."

Former 'grow house' trailer moved


This trailer was seized from a marijua-
na grow house operation in 2006. Former
Sheriff Ronnie Lee decided to use it for evi-
dence storage.
When Sheriff Whidden came into office
on January 5, 2009, the trailer contained
evidence for over 40 criminal cases.
These cases were primarily drug related,
some containing 10-12 pieces. These cas-


es were already disposed of in court and
required complete inventory, recording,
weighing and court ordered destruction.
The contraband was taken to the Lee
County incinerator.
This 1.5 year process is complete and
the empty trailer has been relocated to the
sheriff's range where it will be used for
typical non-drug related storage.

She said the other man held Anthony at bay
while the first man allegedly took Amber to
a dark area and sexually assaulted her.
The two men then threw the keys out
of the car and took off, and Amber and her
boyfriend started the car to leave the area,
she continued.
"When I came back down the road to
where I had picked them up (originally),
there was a guy in the middle of the road.
Him and the other one were off on the left
side of the road and they were screaming
and yelling. I ended up running one of them
over, and he died."
Amber was not arrested that night. The
surviving man -- the man who she claims
had physically assaulted her -- was arrested
later but has since been released.
"I wish I could go back," she said. "I
would have slept in that house."
Investigation and warrant
Given the nature of the incident, that on
one hand Lee is a suspect, but on the other
hand she may be a victim, law enforcement
agencies are releasing very little information
about the case.
FHP spokesman Lt. Christopher Miller
said his agency responded to the accident,
but could not comment on the possible as-
sault, which he explained was handled by
the Hendry County Sheriff's Office.
Highway patrol officers in their report
wrote that they received the call at 7:03 a.m.


on Dec. 4. According to the investigator, Lee
was traveling on Harlem Academy Ave. in
her 2003 Mazda four-door when she no-
ticed Timothy Cornelius Baulkman and Coy
Moore walking on the edge of the roadway.
Lt. Miller said the driver "moved onto the
shoulder and struck Timothy Baulkman,"
killing him. Moore managed to dodge the
vehicle. Lee's passenger at the time was
listed as Anthony Varnell.
Asked what the determination of investi-
gators was, Lt. Miller said, "This was an in-
tentional act."
Sheriff Steve Whidden acknowledged the
crime, saying that his department did inves-
tigate the allegations of sexual assault, but
stopped short of releasing specific investiga-
tion information about it for fear that it may
jeopardize the trial or sway the jury one way
or the other.
According to court records, Moore faced
charges of aggravated assault with a deadly
weapon, two counts of false imprisonment,
petit theft of property and two counts of
robbery with a weapon for his alleged role
in the December incident, but all of these
charges were dropped or abandoned.
According to the sheriff, on this occasion
there was not enough evidence to support
the rape charge.

Guilty or innocent?
Some questions enter the fray, including
why Lee would consider the night of Dec.
3 to be hot when the forecast for the day
called for a low of 64 degrees.
She defends her case.
"Atfirst Iwas thevictim..." saidAmberlast


week. "They arrested him and he got out. All
of a sudden I get a letter from the state attor-
ney that they're not pressing charges against
him due to insufficient evidence."
After the accident, Amber said she left the
area, traveling to her father's home in Belle
Glade. When she got there, she called police
and told them she had just run over a man
in Harlem.
"I never once ran from them. I never once
hid. I cooperated the whole time," she said.
She said investigators told her it seemed
like a drug deal gone bad. Maybe after the
suspects did what they did to her, she was
upset, and wanted to strike back.
She disagrees.
"I've been molested a lot when I was
younger and nothing ever happened. I al-
ways just built it up, kept it inside and every-


thing built up.
"I didn't say, 'oh, I'm gonna kill him,' after
they got out of my car," Amber said sobbing.
"It's just, I seen him, the man was on the
road, the other men were on the side and I
just lost it. I don't know. I can't even explain
it. I really cannot explain it."
Eight months after the incident, she has
yet to come to terms with what happened
-- and this latest development is the worst
reminder yet.
"This is not fair to me. They're letting him
walk free after what he did to me and they're
trying to charge me as if I'm a murderer and
I'm not a murderer. I never meant for any-
body to get hurt. I have remorse for this. I'm
not a murderer."
If convicted, Amber Lee could spend the
rest of her life in jail.
