BY JUAN LOPEZ jlopez@newszap.comA desperate battle against time is being fought here and in a hospital room in Miami. Darius Redd, 17, a local basketball and football player and soon to be senior high school student is on life support as he awaits a heart transplant. Having just returned from a summer football camp hosted by Florida Atlantic University, no one could have foreseen that less than a month later he would be on life support after an infection led to possible heart failure. Darius was diagnosed with myocarditis or in ammation of the heart muscle. It is a disorder that happens when a viral, bacterial and fungal infection reaches the heart. The body's immune system produces special cells and chemicals to ght off infections. The problem is that when an infection reaches the heart, those same disease- ghting cells could also damage the heart muscle. This can make the heart muscle weak, swollen and thick, which can lead to heart failure. The time frame in which he fell ill was alarmingly quick. On June 26, Darius complained that he was having trouble breathing and was taken to HRMC to be seen. The next day, he was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital. He was put in a drug-induced coma while doctors conducted tests. Darius was placed on life support with the aid of two machines. His rib cage had to be cracked for this. He was brought out of the coma on July 17. Since he is 17, he was put onto the pediatric heart transplant donor list. A positive of being on this list is that it has priority over older transplant patients. One drawback is that due to Darius' size it may be dif cult nding a compatible heart. But Darius and his parents, Eddie and Gloria who wait by his side for an answer, are not alone. A RP .V.

COMMUNITY NEWS AND INFORMATION The Florida Department of Education (FDOE) has awarded $3.6 million dollars of “Race to the Top” funds over the next three years to the Panhandle Area Educational Consortium (PABC) for the creation and implementation of a special program for gifted and talented students in 14 Northwest Florida school districts and 6 school districts in south Florida in the Heartland Educational Consortium (HEC). Mary Jane Tappen, Deputy Chancellor for Curriculum, Instruction, and Student Services with FDOE made the announcement during closing ceremonies at the 44th Annual PABCI/Florida Learns Foundation Inc. Leadership Conference today at the Bay Point Marriot on Panama City Beach. “We are very pleased and excited to have earned this competitive award through the hard work and creative efforts of our school districts and staff. More importantly, it is a great opportunity for our small, rural districts and their gifted and talented students”, said Patrick L. Mclsaniel, Executive Director for PABC. The FDOE has made (STEM) Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math education one of its top priorities for providing educational funding through the Race to the Top initiative. According to the 2010 Florida Council of 100 Report, Closing the Gap, within a decade nearly 9 out of 10 new jobs will require credentials in a STEM discipline and education beyond a high school diploma. High school students eligible for services will include those recommended by their instructors, who score either a four or a ve on the mathematics and science portions of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) and those identi ed by their school districts as gifted or talented. The districts in the Florida panhandle will include Walton, Holmes, Washington, Jackson, Gadsden, Calhoun, Liberty, Gulf, Franklin, Wakulla, Taylor, Jefferson, and Madison County. The districts in the Heartland will include Desoto, Glades, Hardee, Hendry, Highlands, and Okeechobee. The multi-faceted project, known as the Florida Learns STEM Scholars (FLSS), will involve STEM-related higher education faculty, military, business, and industry as collaborators and partners. Through these partnerships, teachers and students will engage in authentic STEM research experiences and leadership development. Curriculum is designed to positively impact perceptions, knowledge, and skills in STEM and engage parents as partners throughout the three year process. On the most recent Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) exam, 24 countries out performed U.S. students in mathematics and 16 countries performed better in science (Institute of Educational Statistics, 2009). When the Thomas Fordham Institute examined data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) exam, it found that during the last decade since the passage of No Child Left Behind, lowest performing students have made learning gains; the highest performing students have made almost no learning gains (National Association for Gifted Students, 2010). These research ndings greatly alarmed PAEC and its member school districts and prompted the consortium to lead the response to the recent FDOEts call for proposals on behalf ofthe 14 PAEC member school districts and the 6 small and rural school districts which comprise the HEC in South Florida. “Without a highly skilled and educated STEM pro cient workforce, the state will be unable to develop a strong diversi ed economy that spurs sustainable economic development. This award will help our districts support their students and enable them to compete in the STEM arena”, said McDaniel.

BY MARK KINGAs the water level on Lake Okeechobee creeps up slowly, the shing has remained fairly steady for the last month and should be good going into next month. The water level is at 10.26 feet above sea level, a far cry from what it should be but it is a lot better than what it was a month ago. The w ater that is coming into the lake is mostly agricultural water and is very dirty. I'm sure it is full of things that the lake doesn't need but it is at least some water. I have been shing both here on Lake Okeechobee and in the Florida Keys and it hasn't been hard to catch sh at either location this summer. The bass seem to be sticking closer to deep water if that is what you can call it here on Okeechobee. I have been catching sh in the dynamite holes and out the main Clewiston channel for the past few weeks and the size of the bass have really surprised me for summer time shing. I have had a good number of bass from ve to eight pounds the past month and those are some really nice bass to catch in the summer time heat. I have been shing a couple different techniques this summer with one being my favorite: a shakey head rig and the other being a Carolina rig. For the Carolina rig I use either a Gambler Ace stick bait or a Gambler Super Stud minnow style bait. The Ace will work best on most days and y ou only need junebug colored ones to get the job done. My shakey head rig is the same that I have been using for over three years now and it is a Gambler Giggy Head jig in ounce size w ith a Sweebo worm in either junebug or black. The only other lure that has been producing for me has been a lipless crankbait in the sexy shad color. Yes, the color really does seem to matter. I have also been using a stop and go retrieve and the bass have been hitting it when you stop reeling the bait. Fishing with the wild shiners for bass has been a little slow and I nd this to be the case during the hot summer months. I have been trying to get my clients out as early in the morning as possible to get the best bite before the sun gets up to high in the sky and the mid afternoon heat slows the bite down. August w ill be a hot month here on Lake Okeechobee but, as we head into September, the bass should start heading in toward shallow water like they did last year. We enjoyed an awesome September last year catching a lot of big bass in the shallow w ater grassy areas. I am also hoping for some really good storms to help ll the lake back up before this winter and it may even take a tropical storm to do this so lets all keep are ngers crossed that we get a lot of rainfall before winter. The bluegill shing is still pretty good on the lake, try shing dynamite holes and along the rim canal in clean water areas. A cricket shed under a cork seams to be the best method to catch them. I am booking lobster trips for the months of A ugust and September to do some night time bully netting in the Keys. Just give me a call and w e can get a trip set up. Until next week, good luck, tight lines and hope to see each and every one of you on the water soon. And remember to drink lots of uids and use plenty of sunscreen as the summers are hot here in South Florida. Capt.

BY STATEPOINTHow to Save Money on Home Energy CostsYour home may be your castle, but it can also be your money pit if you’re not careful. Between home repairs and the rising cost of fuel, food, and electricity, many Americans are feeling the pinch. But you can do something about it. “Americans have a lot more power than they think when it comes to reducing their energy costs,” says Dave Llorens, CEO of One Block Off the Grid, a start-up that negotiates group deals on big-ticket green home improvements like solar panels. “State level incentives can go a long way tow ard reducing the cost of money-saving items like solar panels and electric cars. Call your local government of ce to nd out if incentives are available to you,” adds Llorens. “You may be surprised how much you can save.” Here are some ways you can reduce your home energy costs: Small Things Add Up. There are lots of little things you can do that, when taken together, can reduce your energy costs signi cantly. For example, setting your air conditioner to 78 degrees (or the warmest setting you can tolerate) saves money because many homeowners forget to adjust it down when the weather cools. Also, the lowly microwave is one of your household’s most energy ef cient appliances, so use it instead of an oven to reduce your bill and keep your home cooler in summer months. The w asher and dryer are two of a household’s biggest energy hogs, so doing your washing at night when electricity rates are lower and line drying during the day can save a bundle. Install Solar Panels. In summer months, solar panels can take the burn out of electric bills that spike with air conditioning use. It used to take a long time for solar panels to show a positive return on investment, but new green companies are nding ways to reduce that payback period. One Block Off the Grid, for example, organizes group deals on solar panels based on how many residents in the area are interested, then connects them with reliable local installers for free. This lets consumers buy solar panels at an average of 15 percent below market rate. Take a quick estimate at www.1bog.org. Consider an Electric Car. If you spend a lot of money on gas every month, you should run the numbers and see how much money going electric would save in the long run. It usually costs $25 to $40 a month to charge electric cars. Plus, you can use solar panels in conjunction with electric cars to reduce your monthly fuel costs to zero! For more ideas on how you can save money on energy, visit www.1bog.org. Then get started on reclaiming your castle with some energyand money-saving ideas!Hate tracking your nances? Only 40 percent of Americans use monthly budgets and less than half have ever ordered a copy of their credit report, according to a study by Princeton Survey Research Associates International. “Turning a blind eye when it comes to your nances is not only costly, but dangerous,” says Aaron Patzer, vice president and general manager of Intuit Personal Finance Group. “Luckily, there are easy tools and techniques that can help you track your money.” Here are some money tips to help you save more and spend less. To Budget Or Not Budget Budgeting is to personal nance what dieting is to health -a dreaded word that’s often misunderstood. But just like food gives you fuel to live well, so does your money support your life by helping you meet your needs and live your dreams. If you are budget-a-phobic, consider creating a spending plan, which can be a little more exible than a stuffy budget. Spending plans allow you to consider how this month’s earnings can support your needs and wants. Manage On The Go The key to budgets and spending plans is to know your numbers in real time. By tracking your daily spending, you become more conscious of your spending habits. You can make number tracking fun by using tools you enjoy that work with your life. For example, Mint.com now offers iPhone and Android phone apps that let users get a snapshot of their nances and manage their money anytime, anywhere. Consumers can also receive alerts for suspicious activities or overdrafts right on their smartphones. Automate Savings Whether you’re an online banking fanatic or someone who likes to balance electronic statements with paper checks, most experts advise automating your savings. It’s also helpful if you have a savings goal -whether it’s for new car, vacation, or emergency fund. Most experts recommend stashing away 15 to 20 percent of your income into a high-yield savings account. And online banks often offer better rates than bricks-and-mortar locations. By having your savings account automatically withdraw the funds, even if it’s only $50 a month, you’re more likely to stick to your savings goals. 30-Day Wait Smart shoppers know the wisdom of delayed grati cation. By committing to a 30-day wait before getting something you want but don’t need, you create a buffer where you can reconsider and be swayed by reason, not advertising. For more tips on budgeting, saving and tracking your money on the go, visit www.mint.com. Then get started on hand-picking the tools and techniques that let your money work for you. Money Saving Tips for Rough Season 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 28, 2011 Narconon addiction specialists urge parents to stay alert to synthetic pot and it’s risksUntil this year the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has been blocked from shutting down v endors selling aromatic incense that comes in packages marked “not for human consumption.” This meant that anyone, including minors, could w alk into shops, convenience stores and even gas stations, pay between $18 and $30 and walk out with legal synthetic marijuana. On March 1, the DEA took steps to change this. They evoked emergency powers to put a y ear-long ban pending testing on ve lab-manufactured chemicals contained in these products, J WH-018, JWH-073, CP-47,497, JWH-200, and cannabicyclohexanol. Each substance is a designer drug that mimics the primary psychoactive ingredient, THC, found in marijuana. The chemicals are sprayed onto herbal plant matter that is packaged and sold as aromatic incense. But did this ban solve the problem? “Unfortunately, the DEA can only ban speci c psychoactive chemicals,” explains Bobby Wiggins Drug Prevention Specialist of Narconon International. “As soon as the banned compounds are no longer found in the product, vendors are right back in business. The problem is manufacturing labs are able to make tiny alterations in the molecular structure of the THC-like derivative compounds used, which allows them to replace banned chemicals with new ones that have similar, but possibly more potent properties that are outside DEA jurisdiction.” Case in point, even as 30 states work to block the sale of K2, an incense product that led to psychosis severe enough to prompt a healthy 18-year-old athlete to shoot himself in the head, K3 arrived on the scene boasting that it was 100% free of banned chemicals and legal in all 50 states. Of course, the new product’s packaging also reads, “not for human consumption.” Synthetic marijuana has been around for almost two decades but it was largely ignored as few people were impressed by its properties. But In late 2008, herbal incense products started showing up from Europe containing traces of a psychoactive chemical known as HU-210. The compound is a Schedule I controlled substance that can be from 100 to 800 times as potent as THC. In 2009, Germany banned the sale of another herbal incense-type product, “spice,” because tests revealed it contained JWH-018 and another potent chemical, CP-47 497, developed by a drug company in the 1980s for research purposes. Its effects are three to 28 times more potent than THC. According to the U.S Department of Justice, between March 2010 and December 2010, U.S. poison control centers received over 2,700 synthetic cannabinoid related calls from 49 states. It’s too soon to say if long-term use of THC derivatives cause permanent harm, but so far there is evidence of damage to the lungs, brain, heart, and other vital organs. Attributed deaths in 2010 were nine. “With authorities hampered, the burden falls heavily on parents to keep this drug out of kids’ hands,” says Wiggins. “Kids might reason that it is okay because they aren’t breaking any laws, but they are messing with very potent and addictive drugs. If you suspect your son or daughter could be using synthetic marijuana or other drugs, get help.” For more information on marijuana and other drugs, visit www.narconon.org.

(Sound of Music memories!) Life is lled with simple pleasures, the little satisfying effects you never really anticipate, but always take great pleasure in. They are the gifts of life that we celebrate each in our own way. I believe life is in the details. Ongoing small gestures can mean so much more than one grand display of love. Simple pleasures throughout the day can be far more gratifying that one amazing weekend. When you connect the dots between all these little joys, life seems fuller and more satisfying. It’s the simple things and the simple pleasures, like sleeping in, an ice-cold Coca Cola on a hot day, a good hair day, a tender kiss, a comforting smile, a good hug, a kind word or a few w ords of encouragement that can really bless us in our day. And when the dog does bite, and when the bee does sting, and in those times when I’m feeling sad, I have found that these simple things and pleasures become God blessings that I can use to make my day more pleasant. They’re not big things, but each simple pleasure can translate to a great day if you use them right. Here are some more simple pleasures that I have on my list and give thanks to God for: + My dog excitedly greeting me when I come home. + Smelling rain. + Finding money I didn’t know I had. + Clean, fresh linens on my bed. + The smell of fresh baked cookies. + A child’s smile or laugh. + Looking at old pictures. + Helping someone in need. + When I nd exactly the right Bible verse. + A sermon or program coming together. + Finishing a project. + Creative baking. + A small gesture of kindness from someone w ho cares for me. + Free stuff + Swapping stories with friends. + Spending quite time with my wife. + My dog curled up at my feet sleeping while I type this. I have found that my list grows as I think of all the simple things that make life enjoyable. God is good! What are some of the simple pleasures you’ve been enjoying lately?Choosing Who I Really AmBY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchI was asked one day where I’d like to retire. My answer was “Somewhere where my blood pressure doesn’t change with each election!” The person asking the question smiled. I was being facetious; there may be no such place! In reality, it isn’t the place that will make the difference, it will boil down to my outlook and attitude. How many times have I heard “He (or she) makes me mad!” or “I won’t be pleased if this or that happens!” as if others had control over how we feel. In reality they may not have any such control at all. Who is responsible for our happiness or unhappiness? It is, when all is said and done, ourselves. How many people believe that we’re always supposed to be happy with our loved ones, or schooling is supposed to be fun and interesting, or their job is not supposed to be boring or hard, or Church is supposed to be something to be “enjoyed?” One young man, who was angry on a Sunday morning, told me “You know why I am here? Because my mother made me go, that’s why!” I asked him if he thought I always felt like getting up on Sunday morning and going to church. That question never crossed his mind: I was “supposed” to like it. Oh? Then I explained to him that we’re supposed to be here; with all of the highs and lows about it, and all of the good days and the bad ones; if we are here, something may come and maybe not; but if we are not here, nothing can possibly come. His face and attitude changed. An essay written in 1902 by James Allen is considered the source for “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” Allen paraphrased Proverbs 23:7, telling us as we consider the cost of something, that’s how we are. The implications are far-reaching; do I have some control over my blood pressure? Yes. Can I learn to like something (someone) even if I think I don’t like it (them)? Yes. Can I keep my eyes on the reason I am in school or where my job ts into the larger part of our industry/society/community/world; and change my feelings about it? Yes. Do I let others or circumstances change my feelings, attitudes and beliefs about things or people? I try to listen carefully and attentively to what is out there; and choose how I am to be. If I spend time with good in uences, re ect positively, look for the best possible side of others, learn to keep things in perspective, I may get to be a little more like that person all of us seek to be. Years back, the medical sciences discovered the “placebo effect” – if you believed a medication was going to work, it might well work! Spiritually, the writer of Proverbs knew about it all along; only it’s not an imaginary thing, it’s for real and really works in our lives!Our HeritageBY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST First Christian ChurchWe as Americans have a very rich heritage and this is the month that we hear about it. The awareness of the signi cance of our heritage has always taken place among the American people. We all should be proud and thankful to be Americans. As one studies American history, it quickly becomes evident that Christianity played a very signi cant role in the formation of our nation. Many of those who exerted a great deal of in uence in setting forth the ideals upon which our nation was founded were Christian men. The church played an important role in the formation of the frontier which was constantly expanding and ever spreading westward. It played a signi cant role during the slave issue and always voiced its opinion when it came to vital issues which affected the American people. Yes, the church has been very much involved in the formation of this great nation. However, I can’t help but believe that far too often one’s patriotism was placed on the same level as one’s Christianity. We as Christians must always remember that our true citizenship is in Heaven. We are members of the family of God and should always remember that our rst love is the Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. For too long Christianity has been placed on the same level with loyalty to country and Mom’s apple pie -to be a Christian is the American thing to do. Let us always remember that Christ’s Church has been around a lot longer than America and that the founding of America was based on religious convictions. We are Christians because we recognized our need for the Lord Jesus Christ and have accepted the free gift of forgiveness of sins and eternal life offered because of His sacri ce, not because it is the patriotic or American thing to do. We must seek the Kingdom of God rst and then serve our country to the best of our ability. Once this is accomplished in the life of an individual, then will come true the saying, “He who serves the Lord best serves His nation best.” As we remember our great American heritage, let us not forget the far greater heritage which we have in Christ and the great future which He offers us. RELIGION COLUMNS Pastor John Hicks Rev. Sam S. Thomas “I can’t help but believe that far too often one’s patriotism was placed on the same level as one’s Christianity.”-Jackie Miller

Hudson III chairman and ceo 13 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 28, 2011 If you are a female farmer or rancher or a Hispanic farmer or rancher and you believe that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) improperly denied farm loan bene ts to you for certain time periods between 1981 and 2000 because you are a female, or because you are Hispanic, you may be eligible to apply for compensation, the USDA State Food & Agriculture Council (SFAC) in Florida announced in joint news release issued today. You might be eligible if: You sought a farm loan or farm-loan servicing from USDA during that period; and The loan was denied, provided late, approved for a lesser amount than requested, approved with restrictive conditions, or USDA failed to provide an appropriate loan service; and You believe these actions occurred because y ou are female or Hispanic. "We want all producers who may be eligible to be aware of this claims process for female and Hispanic farmers and ranchers, as well as the recent settlements with Native American and African American farmers and ranchers, so they can come forward and participate in these processes," said Richard Machek, State Director of Rural Development (RD) in Florida, who serves as this y ear's chair of the SFAC. The SFAC is comprised of State-level agency heads of the three USDA partner agencies RD State Director Richard Machek, Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Executive Director, Tim Manning and Natural Resources Conserv ation Service (NRCS) State Conservationist Carlos Suarezwith membership from other USDA agencies in Florida. If you want to register your name to receive a claims package in the female and Hispanic farmers claims process, you can call the Farmer and Rancher Call Center at 1-888-5084429 or access the Website: www.farmerclaims. gov. In 2011, a Class Administrator will begin mailing claims packages to those who have requested one through the Call Center or Website. The claims package will have detailed information about the eligibility and claims process. In order to participate, you must submit a claim to the Claims Administrator by the end of the claims period. The claims process offers a streamlined alternative to litigation and provides at least $1.33 billion in compensation, plus up to $160 million in farm debt relief, to eligible Hispanic and women farmers and ranchers. The claims process provides up to $50,000 for each woman or Hispanic farmer who can show that USDA denied them a loan or loan servicing for discriminatory reasons for certain time periods between 1981 and 2000. Hispanic or female farmers who provide additional proof and meet other requirements can receive $50,000. Successful claimants may also be eligible for funds to pay the taxes on their awards and for forgiveness of certain existing USDA loans. There are no ling fees or other costs to claimants to participate in the program. Participation is voluntary, and individuals who opt not to participate are not precluded by the program from ling a complaint in court. If you are currently represented by counsel regarding allegations of discrimination against USDA or in a lawsuit claiming discrimination by USDA, you should contact your counsel regarding your claims process. USDA cannot provide legal advice to you. You are not required to hire an attorney to le a claim, but you may contact a lawyer or other legal services provider in your community for additional guidance.Backgrounder for USDA Of cials Since the rst days of the Obama Administration, we have worked to write a new chapter for civil rights at USDA. We have taken comprehensive, de nitive actions to move the Department into a new era as a model employer and premier service provider. We believe that every farmer and rancher should be treated equally and fairly and we are committed to resolving all cases involving allegations of past discrimination by individuals, including Hispanic and women farmers. As part of our work towards this new era we announced a settlement with black farmers to address pending claims, and nalized a historic settlement agreement with Native American farmers who claim to have faced discrimination by USDA in past decades. And the claims process we announced on February 25, 2011, will turn the page on allegations of discrimination made against the Department by Hispanic and women farmers and provide compensation to a nal group of individuals who faced discrimination. Together with the Department of Justice, we are providing Hispanic, Latino and women farmers and ranchers who allege discrimination an option for a streamlined process to resolve their claims simply. As we move through this claims process, we will continue our work so that fairness and inclusion serve as the foundation of everything we do at USDA, and that each employee and customer is treated fairly and equitably, with dignity and respect. Never again should hard-working Americans be forced off a farm their family has tilled for generations because they can't get the help they deserve to make it through a bad harvest, or are denied a loan to repair a broken tractor. The American people deserve no less. Background on Uni ed Claims ProcessIn recent years, Federal courts decided not to certify the lawsuits brought by Hispanic and women farmers as class actions. This means that the individual farmers were left with one option: to take their claims individually through the federal court system. Having to rely on the courts might discourage many farmers from seeking redress because of the signi cant nancial and time resources required for an individual lawsuit. The process we announced will help folks resolve their claims more simply. If you believe that USDA improperly denied you farm loan bene ts between 1981 and 2000 because you are Hispanic, Latino, or female you can nd information about the claims process at www.farmerclaims.gov or by calling 1-888-5084429. Claimants will have 180 days from the opening date of the Claims Period, to be announced by the USDA, within which to le a complete Claims Package. As part of this claims process, USDA will conduct extensive outreach and notice efforts to Hispanic and/or women farmer communities so that all eligible farmers and ranchers learn about this option and are provided an opportunity to participate.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 14 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 28, 2011 BY ERIC KOPP e Clewiston NewsA teenager has been arrested for allegedly stealing a car in Okeechobee so he could return his girlfriend to Hobe Sound. Chase Wyatt Weeks, 16, Burkett Way, Clewiston, was arrested Monday, July 18, on a charge of grand theft auto. He was booked into the Okeechobee County Jail then released into the custody of his parents. An arrest report by Detective Bill Saum, of the Okeechobee City Police Department (OCPD), said Weeks stole a 2003 Pontiac Sun re valued at $5,000. The keys were reportedly in the unlocked car when it was stolen in April. The detective said the car was found April 9 partially submerged in a canal and several of the w indows were broken out. According to Detective Saum, Weeks' ngerprints were found on the car. When the investigator asked Weeks why he took the car, the teen reportedly said he needed to get his girlfriend back to Hobe Sound and that he was "... willing to do anything for his girlfriend." The detective's report goes on to state that Weeks and the girl are no longer seeing each other. Teen Allegedly Stole Car to Help Girlfriend Chase Weeks “Floating” to JailA previously red supervisor, 45-year-old Jose Canales, from Bealls Outlet was arrested, charged with stealing money deposits. Of cer Micah Thomas, of Clewiston Police Department, was called in by the store manager who had notice several inconsistencies in the store's deposit log and the store's local bank account. The manager stated that a deposit of $1,986.74 that was taken by the suspect on June 14 and, as of July 21, had yet to reach the bank account. Thomas went to the suspect home, along with sheriff's deputies, to have him come in for an interview. When confronted with the evidence that he had never made the deposit, the suspect gave several excuses as to why the deposit may not be showing up; including the idea that someone may have erased the deposit receipt information that he entered after he supposedly made the deposit at the bank account, he dropped the account as he left the store, or that someone at the bank made a mistake. Thomas was not convinced as the suspect continued to give excuse after excuse. He was placed under arrest. Of cer Jones, of Clewiston Police, came on to review the deposit history and security camera footage. He found that it wasn't the rst time the suspect had mishandled a deposit. On three other occasions, the suspect had collected a deposit yet took four or more days to make it to the bank to deposit the money. Based on this, it appeared that the suspect was borrowing or oating funds for an unknown reason. It also appears that he needed the money from the $1,986.47 to cover for the previous week's deposit of $2,035.63. The suspect is facing a third degree felony larceny charge.In for a Penny ...A man who was arrested for misdemeanor domestic battery compounded his problems with a violent tirade during his processing. The suspect, 28-year-old Antoine Demetrius Andersen, was arrested July 20 after a complaint of domestic abuse was led against him. While gathering evidence, Dep. Beckford, of Hendry County Sheriff's Of ce, discovered that such abuse was a continual issue with the suspect. After obtaining several statements that corroborated the victim's complaints, Beckford called the suspect, who agreed to come in for an interview. When he arrived at the Sheriff's Of ce, he was placed under arrest. From that point on, the suspect became increasing abusive verbally. As he was being processed, the suspect began to threaten Beckford. The threats he said to Beckford take up almost a full quarter of the entire arrest report. Some of the threats he made were: "I'm going to run you over when I bail out of LaBelle ... I'm going to make you remember me ... What you better do is take these handcuffs off of me and let me walk out of here because if I go to LaBelle ... I'm going to get you." The ellipses in the quotes mark the points where he cursed and used racial slurs for emphasis. Several other threats he made to Beckford included threatening her family, home and relatives. Because of that little moment, he is also facing an additional charge of felony threatening a public servant.

Bolt reloaded as the suspect ran toward the front door of one apartment. Bolt gave chase and ordered the suspect to the ground. Again, the suspect ignored him and was attempting to open the front door of the apartment with a key. Bolt also noticed a silver object in his other hand that resembled a rearm. Bolt red his Taser. Again, it wasn't effective and the suspect was able to shrug it off. By that time, Of cer Blackmon of the Clewiston Police Department had arrived on the scene and deployed his K9 partner Kilo. With Kilo's help Bolt was able to remove the weapon from the suspect's right hand and place him in cuffs. Currently, the suspect is facing ve charges, including two felony for assaulting a police of cer and discharging a rearm from a vehicle. COPContinued  1 HCSO releases new infoBY LT. SUSAN HARRELLE H.C.S.O.Some con artists have reached a new disgusting low preying on grandparents. Better known as the Grandparent Scam it works like this. Typically the grandparent receives a distressed phone call from someone pretending to be his or her grandchild. There are several variations to the scam but usually the supposed grandchild explains that he or she is traveling in Canada or Mexico and is in some kind of trouble, ranging from an arrest to an auto accident. The con artist pleads with the grandparent to wire money to post bail or pay for damages, usually amounting to a few thousand dollars. As part of the scam the grandparent is asked to wire money through Western Union or MoneyGram, right away. Scammers sometimes contact people randomly. They also use marketing lists, telephone listings, and information from social networking sites, obituaries and other sources. Sometimes the scammers don't know the names of the grandchild. For instance the caller may say "Hi grandma," hoping that you actually have a grandson. If you ask, "David, is that you?" the scammer will say "Yes!", Often these crooks will call in the middle of the night and take advantage of the fact that you may not be awake enough to ask more questions and you may not want to disturb other people by calling them to con rm information. If you realize you've been scammed contact the money transfer service immediately to report the scam. If the money hasn't been picked up yet, you can retrieve it, but if it has the money is gone. If you get a call or email from someone claiming to know you and asking for help, ask some questions that would be dif cult for an imposter to answer like the name of the person's pet, or the date of their mother's birthday. Try to contact the person who they claim to be directly. If you can't reach the person; contact someone else, a friend or relative. Don't send money unless you're sure it's really the person you know. Grandparent Scam

Ihad seen ads for Appearance Implants and sought out Dr. Harrouff. When I walked into the lobby of the office the first thing I saw was a photo of the late Republican strategist Lee Atwater, who I later learned was a childhood friend of Dr. Harrouff. As a South Carolina Democrat I didnt have a lot of love for Lee, he had gotten the best of me in my first campaign, I sure as hell wasnt too keen on letting any buddy of Lee work on me. After that first encounter, I felt very confortable with Dr. Harrouff. The entire experience was purely first rate. From the people who greeted me in the lobby and to the dental staff, the Appearance Implant & Laser Dentistry team makes you feel right at home. When Dr. Harrouff got down to performing the procedure it was fast, relatively painless and the result was just perfect. The finished implant works better than Id expected. He provided me with the most affordable treatment and I have been more than impressed and satisfied by the results. I have recommended Dr. Harrouff and his professional and friendly staff to many of my friends.

But after 50 years of research, scientists have yet to deliver a successful method. Researchers’ efforts have been hindered by awed experiments and lack of eld testing, according to experts with the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. Their ndings appear in a review article published online this week by the journal Biological Control. Subterranean termites account for 80 percent of the nation’s annual $4.1 billion in termite control expenses. Colonies can hold anywhere from 100,000 to 1 million of the wood-destroying insects, and miles of pencil-sized tunnels. In past studies conducted at many institutions, researchers have experimented with fungi, bacteria, nematodes and viruses thought to be promising biological control agents, said Thomas Chouvenc, a postdoctoral associate with UF’s Fort Lauderdale Research and Education Center and the review’s lead author. In a typical study, termites in a con ned space are exposed to an enemy organism, often at concentrations impossible to achieve in the wild. “We can kill a bug in a jar, but the vast majority of these studies don’t describe any way to implement that approach in the real world,” Chouvenc said. Distributing a pathogen or parasite in a termite colony is no easy task, said Nan-Yao Su, a UF entomology professor at the center and another author of the study. He developed a baiting system widely used to control subterranean termites. The insects detect and avoid some fungal pathogens, and will close tunnels to con ne threats. Other behaviors, such as constant grooming and removal of dead individuals, reduce the likelihood of pathogen transmission. Among the 227 studies analyzed, many were authored by scientists who were not termite experts and probably had little understanding of the insects’ behavior, Su said. Biological control of subterranean termites may be possible, he said, but researchers should learn from past mistakes—notably, the focus on soil-dwelling fungi as potential control agents. “Termites have lived in the soil with those fungi for millions of years, and they have evolved a wide range of mechanisms to prevent the pathogens from spreading within the colony,” Su said. “You need something that has not coevolved with termites.” The key to success, Chouvenc said, might be nding a pathogen that can spread to other termites before its host dies, not after. Both researchers say journals are often biased toward publishing studies that show positive results, meaning that scientists may not learn about unsuccessful experiments. “We need to encourage negative reporting so we don’t replicate the same mistakes,” Su said. New Approaches Needed if Biological Control of Termites to Succeed SUBMITTED PHOTO N an-Yao Su, a termite expert with the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricult ural Sciences, poses with a tabletop model of a subterranean termite nest in this le photo. Su and colleague Thomas Chouvenc recently authored a review paper that suggests previous e fforts to develop biological control methods for subterranean termites have been hampered b y inadequate studies. The review, published in the journal Biological Control, looked at 227 s tudies conducted at numerous universities over a 50-year period. Many of the studies simply e xamined whether a natural enemy could kill subterranean termites under laboratory condit ions, and did not involve experiments with actual termite nests.

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonCitizen scientists, birdwatchers and photographers of all skills and ages, in inland Florida are participating and submitting their observations to numerous bird monitoring projects being conducted by government and nonpro t agencies. A few include the North American Migration Counts in the fall and spring, Christmas Bird Count, Great Backyard Bird Count, Bluebird Blitz, Eagle Watch, Avian Center for Birds of Prey (Swallowtailed Kite), and Project Feeder Watch. The data submitted by volunteers is used to help monitor the frequency and abundance of various bird species. On September 17, birders and photographers w ill be joining teams at assigned areas or working solo at home to help tally the species and number of birds in the inland counties and Lake Okeechobee during the Fall North American Migration Count. The data for Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee County will be compiled by HendryGlades Audubon and submitted to the Florida Ontological Society. Contact Margaret England for information or a bird checklist for the Fall North A merican Migration Count. One bird that usually migrates to South America before the annual Fall North American Migration Count is the Common Nighthawk. The Common Nighthawk, is a common summer resident throughout inland Florida. This medium-sized bird of "least concern" has a large head with a tiny bill and is well camou aged with brown, black and gray feathers and barring on the chest. In ight, long pointed bent wings with a white patch are observed during diving displays which makes them look like a big bat with headlights. It is know in some areas as the "bullbat". During courtship the male can create a booming sound from air rushing through its wingtips during a steep drive. Their call is a short "peet". They are most active during early daylight and later afternoon. Common nighthawks can be seen resting on horizontal tree limbs, fences and utility wires during the midday hours. Their diet consists mainly of ying insects that are caught on the wing, near dawn and dusk or sometimes at night with a full moon or near street lights. Common Nighthawks do not build nests, but will lay two eggs directly on bare ground, in raised locations such as stumps or gravel roofs. The female is largely responsible for the 20 day incubation. Young edge at 20 days of age. Common Nighthawks are being observed throughout inland Florida, ying at dawn and dusk near roadways and power lines. They will begin migration to their wintering ground in South America soon.

BY STATEPOINTLooking for some great summer reading to help get you through the dog days of the season? Why not catch up on American classics you might have missed in your youth. The long sunny days are great for lounging and meandering through some American classics, many of which enjoy a controversial history that makes them all the more worth exploring. The Civil War Historic and huge, Shelby Foote’s three-volume history of the Civil War is a must for American history buffs. Focused on the military campaigns, “The Civil War: A Narrative” was published between 1958 and 1974. Yet, it has been criticized in recent years for its neglect of political and social factors in the war, particularly slavery. This year, in honor of the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War, the complete set has been reissued with commentary by Jon Meacham, a Pulitzer-prize winning author himself. But if any amount of reading about the Civil War seems dry, check out Ken Burns’s PBS documentary, The Civil War, which relies heavily on Foote’s research. Atlas Shrugged More than 50 years after “Atlas Shrugged” debuted as a New York Times bestselling novel, it has made the bestseller lists again this year, bringing total sales to over seven million copies. And with the recent release of a movie of the same name, conservative and liberals across the country are engaging in spirited debates over the writings of Ayn Rand, a controversial philosopher who espoused individualism over collective interest. “‘Atlas Shrugged’ is an interesting and compelling story today,” says David Kelley, president and founder of The Atlas Society, a nonpro t organization based on Rand’s teachings about Objectivism and capitalism. “It provides incredible parallels with our current state of affairs.” Whether you agree or disagree with Rand’s worldview, her work is a must-read for anyone interested in the political and economic history and future of America. Her books have sold a cumulative 25 million copies and even sparked a social movement focused on the championing of personal liberty and entrepreneurialism. For more information, visit www.atlassociety.org. To Kill A Mockingbird Celebrated and banned, Harper Lee’s only published novel is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Loosely based on an event in Lee’s own hometown of Monroeville, Alabama, the book is a coming-of-age novel narrated by a young white girl named Scout as she watches the trial of a falsely accused African American man, defended by her father Atticus. The novel won the Pulitzer Prize in 1961, but has also been banned by schools for use of profanity and frank discussion of race. Yet the 1962 lm starring Gregory Peck and Robert Duvall met with critical acclaim. Through controversy and poetry, history and plot, these works continue to in uence public debate in America. Isn’t it time you got in on the conversation? Roofing 21 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 28, 2011 Great Summer Reads To Beat Those Dog Days To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand The Civil War by Shelby Foote SUBMITTED PHOTO BY STATEPOINTNew research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on “swimmer’s ear” underscores the need for the public to play an active role in ensuring healthy pools. The study indicates “swimmer’s ear” accounts for 2.4 million doctor visits and nearly $500 million in health care costs annually. The CDC is encouraging swimmers to test pool water for proper chemistry. To help keep swimming fun and healthy this summer, the Water Quality & Health Council is once again making free pool test kits available so swimmers can check pH and chlorine readings. According to the CDC, pools with proper pH and chlorine readings are less likely to harbor bacteria that cause “swimmer’s ear” and germs that cause other recreational water illnesses, including diarrhea and athlete’s foot. Free pool test kits are available at www.healthypools.org/freeteststrips. Last summer, the council provided more than 43,000 free pool test kits. Data submitted by swimmers who requested kits found that 40 percent of pools had unacceptable levels of chlorine or pH readings. When testing pool water, the pH should register between 7.2 and 7.8 and the free chlorine level should be between 1.0 and 4.0 parts per million. If readings are outside these ranges, pool staff should be noti ed immediately. Pool operators should check disinfectant levels and pH at least twice daily. Swimmers requesting test kits are encouraged to upload readings to the Healthy Pools website, which even offers a smart-phone application so swimmers can upload data poolside. In a recent survey by the Water Quality & Health Council, nearly one in ve adults admitted to urinating in pools and one in three said they don’t shower before swimming. In addition to using pool test kits, swimmers can use their senses to check for signs of healthy pools. Tips For Safe Swimming

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 23 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 28, 2011 Sheriff Steve Whidden and the Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce Community Policing Unit are hosting a Community Fun Day for friends and neighbors to come together for an enjoyable and informative day. This community event is great for all ages and it’s free! This event is on Saturday, Aug. 6, and the festivities will begin at 10 a.m. lasting until 3 p.m. at Clewiston Civic Park on Sugarland Highway. There will be clowns, a bounce house and pony rides for the children. Child Identi cation Kits will be available and provided by the Sugarland Masonic Lodge. Members of the Sheriff’s Volunteers in Public Safety (VIPS) will be on hand to speak with individuals who are interested in learning more about the Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce and volunteer opportunities. There will be free food and refreshments, entertainment and our very own Sheriff Whidden will be performing with Nashville recording artist, Chris MacArthur and the Florida Cracker Boys Band. Despite all the fun activities and entertainment planned the main purpose of this event is to bring the community together. “I want to enhance and broaden the lines of communication between the Sheriff’s Of ce, businesses, and community leaders, as well as our Neighborhood Watch Programs,” said Sheriff Steve Whidden. “Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce needs you as partners to prevent and solve crimes; and to make HendryCounty an even safer place for everyone to live and raise their families”. “I look forward to having the opportunity to meet with everyone and enjoy the afternoon with those in attendance. Please try to come out and see us, enjoy the free food, fun activities and bring a chair or blanket and enjoy some good old fashion country music. Hope to see you there.” Hendry County Community Fun Day The community has come together in support, both emotionally and nancially, to help Darius and his parents in their time of need. Friends and members of the church the Redd family attends, the Greater Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, have formed a committee to organize fund raising efforts to help bene t the family. All proceeds from their events are going into the Darius Redd Heart Transplant Fund that was established at Seacoast Bank. So far, they have been able to raise more than $2,000 for the fund w ith their car wash, teen dance and BBQ dinner events. Barbara Dykes heads the committee and is heart broken for what the family is going through. “It is just so sad. Darius is a strong boy and for this to happen …,” she said. “We, (the church), felt the need to help them anyway we could.” She added that there is also the unfortunate fact that Darius’ father is currently unemployed and actively looking for a new job. “They really do need the help,” she said. “As their brothers and sisters, we are going to do all that we can to help them. So many people out there in the community feel the same way.” One such person who feels that way also has a close connection Darius and his family. Janice Lee, principal of Clewiston High School and member of the committee, feels devastated that is happening to one of her students. “Hopefully, he will receive a heart transplant soon,” she said. “This is just another test of our faith in bringing the community together.” She continued, describing how she visited Darius and his parents at Jackson Memorial and seeing Darius, who was not doing very well, during the rst week. “Heartbreaking,” she said. “It brings tears to y our eyes.” She echoed a thought that has been spreading through the community as everyone is nding a w ay to help. “We would love to see him back at school, to be able to do the things that he did.” Another person who is close to Darius, Joe Roth, Athletic Director for Clewiston High School, hopes that Darius is able to recover. “It is a terrible situation that he is going through,” he said. “He is coming into the prime of his life and this shouldn’t be happening to him.” Roth described Darius as a quiet kid who had matured into the leader that he and the team knew he could be. “It is tough on everyone here,” he said. “This would be Darius’ fourth year of football and many players looked up to him. All that can be done is to pray for him. I can’t imagine what Eddie and his wife are going through.” Eddie Redd himself calls it a struggle. Yet he and his wife Gloria are working through it. They are having to watch helplessly as their son ghts for his life. For Eddie Redd, words cannot explain what he and his wife are going through. “It’s mind boggling. But the grace of God will maintain us,” he said. “What can I do? It is so hard as a father to watch my son go through this and I can’t do anything to help him.” He was able to say that Darius is out of the coma and is responsive. He is still on life support however. Doctors have still not determined how he developed the myocarditis and tests are ongoing. He continued, saying that he is so grateful for how the community has come together to help and encourage them. “People have been calling us and send us items. We are thankful,” he said. “It has been very rough for us.” Darius had a setback a few weeks ago as he was unable to stop bleeding. However, doctors were able to resolve that problem. Currently, Darius is too ill to be able to receive a new heart. He is slowly being prepared and treated so that his body will be ready for surgery when or if a heart is made available. All that can be done now is wait and pray. “I don’t know why or how this happened,” said Eddie. “But, I do know this: God has plan.” If you would like to help with donations or volunteering at a charity event, contact Barbara Dykes at 863-677-1205.
