Grants sought for theatre


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
PAHOKEE City officials are
hoping to make use of $500,000 in
funding to build a parking lot and
make improvements to its aging
theatre, the Prince Theatre in
downtown Pahokee.
When completed, the monies
will give the city the chance to
once again offer the theatre to
companies interested in making
use of the historical landmark for
cultural and entertainment activi-
ties.


On Feb. 22, the city commis-
sion gave staff the okay to apply for
funding under a Community
Development Block Grant. Tying
in with additional money available
for the theatre, approximately
$100,000 coupled with $400,000,
the money will also pay for the
construction of a much-needed
parking area to be located just
across the street from the theatre.
Preliminary plans, according to
Ms. Latimore, include the general
improvement of the weathered


building. Inside, the building
would benefit from getting a prop-
er dressing room and an overhaul
in the sound within the theatre.
Working on the acoustics and
addressing other shortfalls inside
will be an integral part in making it
attractive to theatre-goers.
That is not to say that the out-
side will be neglected. With a
focus on the exterior, city officials
are hoping to make use of the
money to repair any outside dam-
age and also target improving the


sidewalk outside.
Though $100,000 are designat-
ed for use exclusively at the the-
atre, the city checked with the
county's department of housing
and community development in
studying the feasibility of making
use of a partial amount for the
parking area an idea that the
department was in agreement
with. Of the $400,000 CDBG fund-
ing, approximately $116,000 will
be focused on the parking area. It
will be constructed at 246 E. Main.


Recently, the county got owner-
ship of the property and the city
hopes to use it to accommodate
the lot, which will fit an estimated
60 to 70 vehicles.
According to Ms. Latimore, it
has been the desire of the city to
locate and construct a parking lot
for some time now. With new
businesses opening up in the
downtown area, and with the city
looking at the possibility of open-

Courthouse art


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE If you've
ever felt the look of the West
County Courthouse in Belle
Glade seemed a little drab, you
might be able to change that. If
you have an artistic flair.
Artists countywide are being
urged to participate in a unique
art project. Submitting design
entries, the winning designer will
be selected to revamp the look of
the West County Courthouse in
Belle Glade.
The project is part of Palm
Beach County's Art in Public
Places, a program run by the
county's facilities development
and operations department.
Headed by Administrator Elayna


Toby Singer, the program pro-
poses to engage local artists in
courthouse art.
"We're really looking, to
enhance the overall appear-
ance," said Ms. Singer.
Approved by voters through a
recreational and cultural bond a
few years ago, the half-million
dollars has been distributed
throughout the county -
$40,000 of the money is budget-
ed for the local project.
A public art committee
appointed by the board of county
commissioners is charged with
advising the board on the selec-
tion, acquisition and placement.
of the artwork.
Recently, the program set its.
focus on the area, with a March 4


project
deadline looming for the submis-
sion of proposals by interested
artists on the local courthouse.
The courthouse is described as a
plastered and painted single-
story concrete block structure
that was built in the early '80s -
there is ample room for improve-
ment and the facility itself is a per-
fect canvas for creative design.
The courthouse is part of the
West County Governmental Cen-
ter at 38844 State Road 80. The
Clerk of Courts Office, Court
Administration Sheriff's Office,
Public Defender's Office and the
State Attorney's Office are locat-
ed in that center as well.

BELLE GLADE A new pro-
gram run by the Belle Glade,
Police Department sets out to
bring young girls together in

forming amicable and long-last-
ing relationships.
Since last year, Officer
Tomytea Seymore, with the Belle
Glade Police Department, has
been meeting weekly with local
girls and engaging them in pro-
ductive and educational activi-
ties.
The goal of the program is to
reach out to the young girls, who
thoroughly enjoy being in the
company of other youths in the
positive activities.
"I want'the girls to know how
to respect themselves," said Offi-
cer Seymore last week while she
discussed the program's aims. "I
want them to feel they are
important."
For Officer Seymore, the pro-
gram has been a learning lesson.
Interacting with the young


women, and learning more
about their lives and their inter-
ests, Officer Seymore has built a
strong camaraderie with the
young girls.
The group meets each
Wednesday, and discusses
schoolwork and grades. Accord-
ing to Officer Seymore, a high
priority is given, to keeping the
young girls scoring high in their
grades and doing well in their
subjects. If necessary, Officer
Seymore and her volunteers take
the time to go over some of the
work with the girls.
Then the fun starts. Recently,
the girls traveled to West Palm
Beach to support a fellow sister
who competed in a Brain Bowl
competition. The girls happily
went and cheered on the girl.
The night before, the group had
asleepover.
Officer Seymore' had a sur-
prise in store for one of the girls,

Culantro adds flavor and health benefits


This week, I tried a new herb.
It was something of an accident.
I asked my husband to buy some
potted cilantro for my herb garden.
The store was out of cilantro, but
he brought home a plant labeled
cilantroo."
Culantro doesn't look anything
like cilantro, but the two plants
have similar aromas.
.Cilantro looks a lot like parsley.
It is sometimes called Chinese pars-
ley. The same plant produces two
herbs: cilantro (the leaves) and
coriander (the seeds).
Cilantro is often used in cooking
because the flavor is complimenta-
ry to so many foods. But it is also
reported to have medicinal bene-
fits. Cilantro is said to ease diges-
tion. Cilantro or coriander can be

made into a tea and used to ease an
upset stomach. Cilantro tea may'
also help reduce inflammation -
some people use it to treat aches
and pains of arthritis.
The plant also contains an
antioxidant that helps preserve
foods by killing bacteria and fungi.
This same substance is said to help


humans fight infections. The folk
remedy is to wash a cut or scrape
and then sprinkle crushed corian-
der seeds on the cut to help prevent
infection.
Culantro comes from Central
America and the West Indies. It is
used in many Latin American
recipes.
While cilantro looks like parsley,
the culantro plant looks more like a
cactus. In fact, some varieties have
spikes on their leaves.
The aroma and flavor of the
cilantro and culantro are very simi-
lar. Culantro can be used in recipes
that call for cilantro. Just make sure
you remove any spikes before
chopping up the leaves.
Like cilantro, culantro has
medicinal uses. A tea made from

culantro leaves is used to treat flu

cilantro tea is a home remedy for
diabetes and constipation.
Culantro is reported to be rich in
calcium, iron, Vitamin A and Vita-
min B2.
I found that either cilantro or
culantro works well in salsa.
Culantro has a slightly stronger fla-
vor, so if you are substituting it for
cilantro in recipes, use a little less.
Before making any change in
your diet or exercise plan, consult
your doctor. This is especially
important if you are on any pre-

WWII German POWs provided labor in Florida


By MaryAnn Morris
During World War II, soits,
fathers, brothers went away to
the far side of the world to fight
the terrible war in Europe. State-
side, ration coupons were issued
for meat, butter, gasoline.
Women took up the jobs in facto-
ries and industry because the
men were off to the war. But the
war effort also deprived of agri-
culture of valuable labor.
Jamaican cane cutters refused to
travel from their island because
German U-boats harassed Ameri-
can shipping all along coastal
Florida.
"We could go to the beach,"
remembers Mrs. Frances-Nail of
Clewiston. "Bi "we went out to
eat at night, v had no light at all.
We grope( .,long in the dark
because of te fe that the Ger-
mans woi:' i see -he light and
knowwhc, we '.v re."
Paul V. McNutt, Chairman of
War Manpower Commission
wrote Florida eeniator Claude
Pepper that he iad certified to the
War Department the need to
establish detention camps for
German prisoners of war in Flori-
da "to supply much needed labor
in pulpwood cutting and the
gathering of naval stores."!
The German POWs found
themselves in rural communities
such as Belle Glade, where they
worked in a bean cannery; Polk
County, where they picked citrus
tru:.:; and, Clewiston, where they
%.,-'re put to work cutting sugar
cane.
Liberty Point Camp at Clewis-
ton was one of 26 prisoner war
camps that the U.S. government
established in Florida during
World War II.
Located eight miles southeast
of Moore Haven, aven Used to be
houring ofdruuuuuuthe green-
roofed white buildings had
housed laborers on. U.S. Sugar's
plantations until February 1944
when no workers came. The
POW camp existed there until
Sept. 6, 1945, according to
"Hitler's Soldiers in the Sunshine
State," by Robert P Billinger Jr.
According to the provisions of
the Geneva Convm-tion of 1929,
the German prisuciet6 had the
same food, clothing, housing and
transportation that America's
own soldiers stationed stateside
rt .eived.
The Red Cross initially called
tile Clewiston camp, the "worst
camp ever seen" referring to the
103 degree heat and dusty condi-
tions caused by lack of rain.
Apparently the Red Cross
observers did not realize that
these were normal conditions for
the south Florida region. North-
ern bred German detainees and
American officials visiting the
camp must have had the same
experience that anyone moving
from northern areas has wi'ld
Florida summers those first
summers are awful!
But most of the camp's work-
ers were from Hitler's elite Afrika
Korps. They were tough and so
were the work and the conditions
at Clewiston. Detainees worked
eight hours a day harvesting sng-
arcane.
According 1o "Enemies in our
Midst," by Scott Fields, POWs
were paid for ;hefr labor up to
80 cents a da. in camp coupons,
which they c... ld use at the camp
store. The st',.e was run by the
POWs and rceeds were used
to buy sporinIg equipment and
musical insiruments for the
POWs to ise during their f',.,
time. Tlie '.tore sold wfriiii g
implemeiis, paper, s, e'.;
American newspapers and mragga-
zines, soda, tobacco. The POWs
could also purchase up to two
bottles of beer a day, at a price of
10 cents a bottle.
Although Red Cross visitors
were appalled by the snake-
infested camp and cane fields,
snake catching was favorite pas-
time for P.O.Ws. When the cane
fields were burned for harvesting,

prisoners would ask permission
to stand at the edges of the fields
and watch for tLe snakes to crawl
out.,
In an interview in 1996, quot-
ed in, "Hitler's Soldiers in the


Sunshine State," Gerhard Anklam
of Be;'.in recalled that "he had
killed a snake, had ants eat away
the 1 ..i and kept the skin as a
prized souvenir."
The POWs even tried to tame
an alligator to keep as a pet but
changed their minds about it
when one of them was bitten.
-At times the guards would
march the detainees healthy
young soldiers into town for
exercise, much to the interested.

local supermarkets and conven-

Speak Out

Speak out is our free 24-hour opinion line. Call 996-6636 to
express your opinion or ask a question about public issues.
You are not required to give your name. While we want you to
speak freely, the newspaper reserves the right to edit calls for
clarity, brevity, relevance and fairness.
Dirty work
I'm calling about the Speak Out and if I need to use my
name I will. But every time I pick up the paper there's some-
thing in the Speak Out about one of the ladies that work out
there at the Belle Glade Marina. You know, it's so sad that peo-
ple can put things in the Speak Out and not give.their names. If
they are having a problem with either one of the girls, they
need to come forward with their name and not do dirty work
by putting it in the Speak Out. I think the campground girls are,
doing a wonderful job.

Happy camper
I'm at the campground and I'm calling about all the Speak
Out calls. Well, I live at the campground and these people that
are putting all this fictitious rumors evidently don't live out
there or know these people. These people treat everyone with
respect. They are very courteous,and very dedicated to the,
campground, to the taxpayers of Belle Glade, and to the city of
Belle Glade. I encourage everyone to come out there to visit, to
listen, and to see. I live out here, I know what goes on. I know
how the people are treated and I know much respect the
campers have for the people at the campground office. For
those people who don't have the decency to put something
good in the Speak Out, need to take a step back and-take a deep
breath and tell the truth.

City in shambles
Wake up Pahokee, you are in shambles. You need to pay
attention to the lack of leadership and professionalism in our
mayor, city manager, and commissioners. The city is being run
by people who have no respect for themselves or anyone else.
What this boils down to: No future or vision for Pahokee and us
who are the residents. If those of us are who live in Pahokee do
not speak up against the unprofessional behaviors, attitudes
and statements that come out of the mouths of our city offi-
cials, then Pahokee will never change or better itself. I, for one,
am ashamed of our leaders who run this community. The sad
thing is the unprofessional decisions that are made destroy the
hope for vision and change.

Show me the money
On Aug. 21, 2000, the Belle. Glade City Commission
approved an ordinance to establish a longevity program, which
paid city employees $50 for each year that they worked. On
Dec. 4, 2000, the commission voted to continue this program
on a yearly basis. The employees were paid in September of
2000, but not in subsequent years, even though it was legally
required through the two adopted ordinances. Even though the
commissioners and the city administration constantly praise
the city employees, they appear to be trying to get out of paying
this legally required longevity program. I would like to hear
some comments from the city commission and/or administra-
tion about this subject. Editor's note: Thanks for calling. The
Sun is aware of this situation and is trying to get those answers
as well.

Community Profile: Dr. Helen Franke


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Q: What is your name?
A Helen B. Franke.
Q: Where were you bom?
A, Ocala, Florida.
Q: What do you do?
Ak My job is one of the best in
the world. I'm provost here at Palm
Beach Community College in Belle
Glade. It gives you an opportunity
to work with both students, all of
the staff and the community. Some-
thing different everyday.
Q: Why do you do whatyou do?
A: I don't think I've ever had a
morning I wasn't ready to come to
work. In terms of the fact that I do
enjoy my job, I do enjoy the peo-
ple; and providing opportunities for
people to help themselves. I think
that's what gets me up in the morn-
ing and keeps me going.
Q: Can you describe yourself?
A: Probably straightforward.
Look at the bottom line. Caring. I
listen a lot. I laugh a lot. Which is

good. I'm organized because I'm
lazy, and it saves me time and
effort. I enjoy everyday.
Q: What scares you?
A: Fear? I think since I've lost a
daughter in an automobile acci-
dent and had a son who was called
in as a DOA in another 6ne but lived
and has had a long, long recovery;
probably something happening to


one of my remaining kids. Not me,
them.
Q: What is your favorite song?
A. There are so many songs, it
depends, part of it on my mood but
the circumstances, where I am -
who I'm with. For instance, in July I
can put on Christmas music and
thoroughly enjoy it. I like classical, I
like jazz. As long as it's good music,
I like it.
Q: What irks you?.
A: Maybe what frustrates me is I
don't have enough hours in the day
to bring about what I'd like to for
other people. A 48-hour day proba-
bly wouldn't be long enough. (Q:
What are some examples?) I think
getting more scholarship aid for
students, because students in the
Glades have so many, many needs
and that's one of them. I think sup-
port resources for the academic
courses, so that if they're not doing
well, they can get all the help that
they need. Somebody to talk to and


Bond referendum on March 8 ballot


BELLE GLADE On March 8,
Belle Glade voters will be asked
to approve a $10 million bond
referendum and renovation of
the city's gateway municipal
complex, including fire and
,police buildings.
"The city and its citizens
began an important process last
year toward shaping a vision of
how we want our community to
look by the year 2020," Mayor
Steve Wilson noted. "Redevel-
oping our municipal center, con-
solidating our city services to
include fire and police in one
geographic area, and building a
visually alluring city center and
gateway to the City of Belle
Glade will redefine the city's
image as a growing, prosperous
and attractive community where
its residents enjoy living, work-
ing, playing and raising their
families. Just as important, it will
provide city government with


the tools it needs to continue
improving the services it pro-
vides to our growing popula-
tion."
"The'commission and its staff
conducted extensive research to
determine the most cost-effi-
cient method to improve the
municipal complex," added City
Manager Houston Tate. "By
upgrading and expanding the
old fire station 'into a new head-
quarters building, constructing a
new city hall, gutting the current
city hall and converting it to a
new police headquarters, and
constructing an emergency
management building inde-
pendent of existing structures,
the city found t would save a
substantial amount over all alter-
native plans."
While the bond referendum
will ask voters to approve up to
$10 million in bonds, the city
will aggressively seek other


sources of funding. If successful,
the city will not issue the full
amount of the bonds. Addition-
ally, several new residential and
commercial developments are
currently being constructed.
Once completed, they will add
new sources of revenue to the
city's tax base.
The city plans to issue the
bonds in phases as needed and
not all at once. The first phase of
the project will be the renova-
tion and expansion of the fire
station. It is estimated that $2
million in bonds will be issued
for this at a cost of less than $30
per year, or 8 cents a day of taxes
on a home valued at $75,000.
Phase two will be construction
of a new city hall and gateway to
the municipal complex. Phase
three will be the gutting and ren-
ovation of the current city hall
for the new police headquarters.
The upgraded facilities for


police and fire will enhance
these departments' abilities to
do their jobs effectively and effi-
ciently. These buildings will
allow the departments to pro-
.vide most cost-effective services,
better training for employees,
quicker response times and
increased community outreach.

The new. city hall complex is
designed to provide improved
customer service to Belle
Glade's citizens and businesses.
It has been designed so that
those using the city's services
will easily be able to find and
access the information they
need. Additionally, its location
within a government complex
that includes fire and police
headquarters and the public
library will allow citizens access
to all the main offices of govern-
ment in one location.


Resurrection eggs an Easter story


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Stephen was one of those spe-
cial youth who touched my life. He
was energetic. He was a leader. He
had an open heart for the Lord, and
he loved helping make things hap-
pen in the youth group. And if that
wasn't enough, he had a cute older
sister. I couldn't have asked for
much more as a single young min-
ister.
Around Easter, God blessed me
with a program that Stephen really
took to heart. I gave .everyone an
empty Leggs container (the ones
shaped like eggs), and challenged
them to go find something that
symbolized new life and place it in
their "egg." We ended up with
flowers and insects and all kinds of
offerings. Afterwards, I showed
them an empty egg, and shared
with them about the tomb being
empty and how that meant new life
for us all. Stephen liked the illustra-
tion so much that he started hand-
ing out empty eggs at school, shar-


ing with the recipients about the
empty tomb and its' meaning. He
called his eggs "resurrection eggs".
Then, Stephen came out of
remission. In six weeks, I saw a
healthy, ener-
getic young
man become a
puffy, lethargic,
mass. Although
the cancer
affected
Stephen's
body, it did not
affect his spirit.
He still had a Pastor
positive out-
look and still John Hicks
loved to share
resurrection eggs with those
around him.
Stephen eventually slipped into
a coma and was admitted to the
hospital. One day as I was heading
to the church, I got the inkling to
stop at the hospital to see him. As I
went up to the floor, I met
Stephen's dad, who with tears in
his eyes shared, "John, my son is


dying."
I With my heart in my throat, I
entered Stephen's room. Stephen
was in a pre-natal position making
whimpering sounds like a little
puppy. Not knowing what else to
do, I held Stephen's hand and
started to pray. I don't know the,
timeframe, but I suddenly noticed
that the whimpering had stopped.
I looked up and saw Stephen look-
ing at me. I will never forget his
look or what he told me.
"John, I'm going to be with
Jesus. Take care of my mom and
dad."
A short while later, Stephen did
go to be with Jesus, but his words
of assurance stayed in my heart.
The church was filled to overflow-
ing with students and young peo-
ple giving testimony after testimony
about how Stephen's faith had
touched their lives. Many came
with the resurrection eggs that
Stephen had given them. One of
the resurrection eggs was even
placed in his coffin. Stephen's body
we placed in the earth, but


Stephen's spirit had already been
claimed he had gone to be with
Jesus.
If you ever happen to be in
Sandy Springs, Georgia, stop by
North Springs United Methodist
Church. There you will find a Dog-
wood tree blossoming with new
life during the Easter Season. At its
base is .a plaque remembering
Stephen Haight. It's a tribute to a
young man who touched many
lives not only with his resurrection
eggs, but with his resurrection faith.
Because the tomb is empty, we
can have new life..Because the
tomb is empty our lives can be full.
Because the tomb is empty, we can
go forth as people brimming with
the resurrection love of God. Be
graceful in spirit, hopeful in word,
faithful in deed. Live for the risen
Christ as Christ lives in you. And
remember, when the day comes,
as people with resurrection faith,
we can claim and proclaim with
full assurance, "I'm going to be
with Jesus!"


Ministry where the rubber hits the road


The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas Ph.D+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
The New Testament is full of ref-
erences to healing. It was a central
part of the ministry of Jesus and
one that was carried out by the dis-
ciples, later the
apostles, and y .
the faithful ever '
since.
It has Old .
Testament
roots and is a
fascinating part A
of religious
practice ever A
since. Even
non-believers The Reverend
are intrigued by Samuel S.
it and the heal- Thomas
ing arts often
recognize the place of spiritual/reli-
gious/faith dimensions in making
people whole once more.
I attended a conference spon-
sored by the American Society of
Clinical Hypnosis in the 1980s and
one of the opening speakers talked
about "God causing a deep sleep
to fall upon Adam (Genesis 2:21) as
he removed a rib."
In the midst of this secular
group of physicians, psychologists,
psychiatrists and therapists was a
recognition that God had some-
thing to do with the first "surgical"
intervention and there was some-
thing that linked body, mind, and
spirit. Numerous books have been
written about the body-mind-spirit
connection and their interactions in
'allofus.
Studies of the relationship
between sickness and guilt, pray-
ing and healing time, wellness and
religious practice are in the litera-
ture, and point the way to the place
of faith in the healing arts. In fact,
the earliest hospitals made and
acknowledgement of the represen-
tatives of the religious community
as part of the healing team.


I have visited a medieval hospi-
tal, the best that was available in
the day and age that was founded
by religious orders. Today, we have
separated strictly religious practices,
from the healing or curing of peo-
ple (there is a difference!). I believe
that such a separation may be for
the better.
I also know of those who claim
to practice healing in the name of
religion and exploit others, make
use of the need of the desperate to
further their own needs and who
do such things to their own aggran-
dizement rather than to support the
ministry of the Lord.
Healing ministries, like the heal-
ing arts themselves, are a special-
ized part of ministry and requires
special training, skills and
approaches. I was glad when our
local hospital administrator gave
his "blessing" to the work of the
clergy in the community who
wanted to set up a volunteer chap-
lain's program at the Hendry Coun-
ty Regional Medical Center.
I was grateful when laypersons
volunteered their materials and
expertise, and made gifts to our
local hospital chapel to beautify
and refurbish it. The clergy involved
in the ecumenical ministry owe
their best efforts to those to be
served in this dimension of special-
ized ministry both to the commu-
nity and to the hospital that shares
in their ministry.
Local clergy always visit their
own members, but the visitor, the
unaffiliated, those who distance
themselves from their former reli-
gious affiliations, those in crisis
often find themselves in the hospi-
tal and need away of calling on that
spiritual dimension that plays a vital
role in healing so many times.
Hospitals, and all of our institu-
tions, are places where "the rubber
hits the road" in people's lives the
place where faith in the body-
mind-spirit link can contribute to
healing or not. I am grateful that


our community has once more
shown a willingness to offer anoth-
er resource o those who will take
advantage of it.
When I came to Clewiston, I
kept my affiliation with the advisory
committee for chaplain's training
at Jackson Hospital in Miami. It
means periodic out-of-town trips,


but it is worth it to share with a
multi-disciplinary team in healing.
It is great to know that we in
Clewiston join with the world-class
hospitals in recognizing the need
for healing the whole person. Keep
chaplains in your thoughts and
prayers, they'll help with the heal-
ing too.

somebody to lay it out pretty
straightforward.
Q: What is the memory you
hold dearest to you?
A: I think there are probably sev-
eral that mean a lot to me. One is of
my son, when he was in middle
school he said, "I want to show you
something." I said, "Okay," and he
walked me around the house and
he put his arm around me as we
walked around, he was getting
pretty tall by that time. He showed
me a gorgeous, gorgeous rose. It
was the first time that was growing
in our rose bush. Not just a rose,
but a beautiful rose and we stood
there and appreciated that.
I think another one, the joy in
my daughter's voice one time
when I had come home early from
a trip. She said, "Mom! You're
home early, that's good!" Just hear-
ing that kind of a thrill in somebody
else's voice, it kind of warms your
heart.

Sign-up begins for USDA tree assistance program


CLEWISTON Agricultural
landowners in need of financial
relief for trees, bushes, vines; and
forest land damaged by natural dis-
asters that occurred between Dec.
1, 2003, and Dec. 31, 2004, have a
new option for help through the
USDA's Tree Assistance Program
(TAP), according to FSA (Hendry-
Collier-Glades) County Executive
Director (Joy D. Uossas).
Agriculture Secretary, Mike
Johanns announced that sign-up
for the USDA's Tree assistance Pro-
gram (TAP) began Feb. 7. Funding
for TAP was authorized by the Mili-
tary Construction and Emergency
Hurricane Supplemental Appropri-
ations Act, 2005 (2005 Appropria-
tions Act), and signed into law by
President Bush last October.

Homeward
Bound to
perform
The Homeward Bound
Quartet of Covington, Ind.,
will present a concert at
the First Christian Church,
201 N. Francisco Street, in
Clewiston, on Sunday,
March 6, at the 11 a.m.
worship hour. The group is
composed of Randy and
Darrell Paddock, Les
Moore and Brock Thorns-
brough, all from Indiana.
Jackie Miller, minister of
First Christian, encourages
everyone to attend. A'
freewill love offering will be
received for the. group fol-
lowing the concert. Home-
ward Bound will also per-
form at Lakeport Christian
Church on March 6 at 7
p.m. The public is invited to
attend.


"This legislation," said Johanns,
"provides more than $3 billion in
relief to farmers, ranchers, foresters
and other agricultural producers
who suffered damage due to
severe weather in recent years."
TAP is the first of several pro-
grams to be launched in 2005 to
help producers recover from natu-
ral disasters that occurred in 2003
and 2004.
The sing-up period for General
TAP, TAP-Timber, and TAP-Pecans
will end either on March 18, or 14
calendar days after the Federal Reg-
ister Notice is published. Approved
funding for the tap programs
includes:
-Funding for General TAP,
which is available for eligible
orchardists.
-Funding for rehabilitation and
related costs for pecan trees
destroyed or damaged as a result of
tropical storms, hurricanes, and
related events that were located in
a presidential-disaster declared
county.
-Funding for forest timber own-
ers for replanting.


Owners of eligible trees, bushes
and vines, from which an annual
crop is produced for commercial
-purposes; eligible forest land own-
ers who produce crops of timber
for commercial purposes; and eli-
gible pecan producers may receive
assistance under TAP.
Producers who received pay-
ments under Section 32 of the Act
of August 24, 1934, for 2004 hurri-
cane losses, or the Florida Citrus
Disaster Program (funded by the
same Act), are ineligible to receive
benefits under the general TAP and
for forest timber. However, produc-
ers may receive both section 32
payments and TAP payments for
pecan rehabilitation. In addition,
producers are ineligible for both
Emergency Conservation Program
and TAP assistance for the same
losses.
TAP for Orchardists: Funding as
necessary has been authorized for
benefits under the 2005 Appropria-
tions Act for losses which occurred
during the period beginning Dec. 1,
2003, and ending Dec. 31, 2004, for
eligible orchardists to replant trees,

TAP for Forest Timber Produc-
ers: In addition, the 2005 Appropri-
ations Act authorized $15 million
for assistance to eligible producers
who meet all requirements and
produce periodic crops of forest
timber for commercial use, and
who suffered timber losses or
damage during the period begin-
ning Dec. 1, 2003, and ending Dec.
31, 2004. If all eligible claims filed
during the application period are
greater than the available funds,
benefits will be prorated.
TAP for Pecan Tree Producers:
The 2005 Appropriations Act also
authorized $8.5 million in TAP
assistance for producers who suf-
fered crop damage to pecan trees.

Kiwanis Club helps area seniors address emergencies


LABELLE Since 1995, two
great service organizations in
LaBelle have made a difference in
the lives of many older residents in
the area. Sue Gulley, Executive
Director .of Senior Connections,
and Debra Woodford, President of
the Kiwanis Club of LaBelle,


announced Tuesday that the two
groups will once again work
together to address emergency
needs among the elderly in the
LaBelle area. A $5,000 grant from
the Kiwanis Club to Senior Connec-
tions will continue the work begun
last.year to provide a safety net for


senior citizens who find them-
selves in need of emergency or
temporary assistance due to spe-
cial circumstances.
The agency's "Good Samari-
tan" program is meant to help eld-
ers whose situations require imme-
diate assistance, without the


customary waiting period experi-
enced by enrollees into federal or
state-funded programs. In 2004,
elders were helped with meals, util-
ities payments, home repairs, and
other emergency needs, all made
possible by the Kiwanis grant.
S"We have a long-standing part-


nership with the Kiwanis Club of
LaBelle that has made significant
impact on the needs of seniors less
fortunate in our community. The
Club is to be commended for its
community outreach to the elder-
ly," said Ms. Gulley.


Way partner agency, provides serv
ices to those in need through avari
ety of different programs and fund
ing sources so that no one wh(
needs help goes without. Anyone
including the elder, can make <
referral to Senior Connections fo


Senior Connections, a United help.


Seniors receive three-month

extension for free medicine


TALLAHASSEE Florida sen-
iors will have an additional three
nonths to apply for free prescrip-
tion medication following an
agreement with pharmaceutical
giant Medco, Attorney General
,harlie Crist announced.
The settlement provided eligi-
ble Florida seniors with the
opportunity to receive free pre-
pcription drug benefits. This lat-
est agreement is designed to help
more Florida consumers benefit
from the state's prior settlement
jvith Medco, extending the dead-
line for distribution of the bene-
hts to July 20, 2006..
, The free medication program,
the result of an April 2004 settle-
ment between the Attorney Gen-
eral's Office and Medco, will dis-
tribute generic medication to
citizens who are:
-At least 60 years of age.
-Considered low-income
(incomes below 200 percent of
the federal poverty line, or no
more than $19,836 per year for
individuals or $24,973 per year
for couples).
-Not receiving Medicaid serv-
ices.
The Attorney General's Office,
in conjunction with the Depart-
ment of Elder Affairs, completed
an initial mailing to 8,000 seniors
to inform them of the program.
Follow-up calls were completed
this week and. were accompa-
nied by a second mailing to an
additional pool of citizens, notify-
ing them of the program's
expansion. The longer time peri-
od and expanded eligibility will
enable a larger number of senior
citizens to qualify for the pro-
gram' Many of these citizens
could be eligible for up to $300 of


prescription drug benefit.
"With many of Florida's sen-
iors already suffering under the
weight of high prescription drug
costs, this opportunity to receive
the free benefits comes as wel-
come relief," said Crist. "We
encourage all eligible citizens to
take advantage of the assistance
that this program provides."
Florida and 19 other states
had alleged that Medco encour-
aged prescribers to switch
patients to different prescription
drugs without fully disclosing the
resulting savings from drug man-
ufacturers.
Medco is changing its busi-
ness practices .to inform patients
of their option to decline drug
switches and be reimbursed for
the costs of drug-related switch-
es. Of the 20 states involved,
Florida was the only state that
refused a cash settlement, opting
instead for funds for a generic
drug distribution program for
needy elderly citizens. The drug
distribution option has a 25 per-
cent greater net worth than the
cash settlement, amounting to
$2.3 million.
Eligible elderly Floridians are
encouraged to respond promptly
to the mailed notice and return a
signed authorization form to par-
ticipate in the medication distri-
bution program. A welcome
package from Medco will be sent
to participants that will guide
them through the benefits of the
program.
For more information about
the Free Generic Prescriptions by
Mail program, elders and care-
givers can call the Department of
Elder Affairs' Elder Helpline at
(800) 96-ELDER (800 963-5337)


and ask to speak to a SHINE
(Serving Health Insurance Needs
of Elders) counselor.

FWC simplifies application process


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) will begin accepting appli-
cations for quota hunt permits
and special-opportunity hunt per-
mits for next year's hunting sea-
sons through its Total Licensing
System (TLS) this summer.
This means hunters will sub-
mit their applications at any one
of the more than 600 license
agents who sell hunting and fish-
ing licenses, all county tax collec-
tors' offices or from FWC's Web
site, MyFWC.com
(http://www.myfwc.com/). For
the first time since 1975, hunters
will not mail application forms to
Tallahassee to apply for the quota
hunt permits.
"Handling thousands of paper
applications and dealing with
numerous telephone complaints
from hunters who missed ran-
dom drawings because the postal
service took longer than expected
to deliver their applications was
cumbersome and inefficient,"
said Eddie White, FWC's quota


hunt coordinator. "We have been
issuing licenses and permits
through the TLS since 2003, and
this is a planned progression to
streamline the hunt permit appli-
cation process."
Hunters seeking special-
opportunity hunt permits will be
the first to use this new applica-
tion process. Between May 1 and
June 15, hunters will be able to
submit as many $5 special-oppor-
tunity applications as they would
like through license agents, coun-
ty tax collectors'- offices or online
at MyFWC.com. Application
forms will be available at all FWC
regional offices beginning April
20.
"Once the random drawing is
completed, we will send invoices
to successful applicants," Mr.
White said. "They then take the
invoice to any license agent, pay a
permit fee by the specified dead-
line and walk out with permit in
hand. If one chooses to pay
online, delivery of the permit will
take seven to 10 days."


Hunters seeking quota hunt
permits can apply from June 1-11
at license vendors, county tax col-
lectors' offices or online at
MyFWC.com. Application forms
will be available at all tax collec-
tors' offices and FWC regional
offices beginning May 15. These
forms are still necessary to pro-
vide license agents with hunt
choices, dates and personal infor-
mation.
"During this period, you can,
submit applications online min-
utes before the deadline and
know your application was
accepted," Mr. White said. "You
will be able to walk away from a
license agent with a receipt show-
ing the type of quota application
you submitted, which drawing
you are in and what choices you
made."
Remaining un-issued quota
permits will be made available
directly from license agents,
county tax collectors' offices and
online at MyFWC.com on a first-
come, first-served basis once the


random drawing has been com-
pleted.
The first change in the system
hunters will notice is that stickers,
tabs and photocopies of licenses
are no longer required with the
application. The TLS will verify
that hunters have valid wildlife
management area permits when
they apply. If they do not have the
proper license or permit, they
may obtain one where they apply.
Another major change will be
a closed period between the first
and second phases of the pro-
gram, from June 12 through July
31, during which no applications
will be accepted. The TLS is
expected to drastically reduce the
time hunters have to wait for the
results of the random drawings.
"During the next few months
we will be providing more details
about the new process," Mr.
White said. "We want hunters to
be able to get as much informa-
tion about the changes as possi-
ble."

Response team helps animals in hurricane-hit areas


TALLAHASSEE, Fla.- When
hurricanes hit Florida last summer,
out- of-state veterinarians cared for
animals in affected counties, pet
food companies provided free food
and suppliers trucked in tons of
livestock feed.
The newly formed State Agricul-
tural Response Team (SART) coor-
dinated this relief, providing a live
test for its task of improving work-
ing relationships statewide during
disasters and other emergencies.
"We had just begun SART when
we were called into action," said
Greg Christy, who is the SART coor-
dinator and the ESF17 coordinator
for the State Emergency Operations
Center in Tallahassee. "SART had
an impact, and we learned many
lessons that will help us be more
effective in the future."
SART supported the Tallahassee
center as well as field activities. Par-,
ticipating agencies helped get peo-
ple and supplies where they were


needed.
For example, SART connected
University of Florida veterinary staff
and students with animal shelters
in hurricane-hit areas. SART also
helped find foster homes for pets
across the state and worked with
the Humane Society of the United
States Southeast Region to fly some
pets to foster homes in other states.
SART was formed by a group of
cooperating agencies, including
the Florida Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services, the
University of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences, the
United States Department of Agri-
culture, the Florida Division of'
Emergency Management, the
Humane Society, the Florida Veteri-
nary Medical Association, the Flori-
da Animal Control Association and
Florida Farm Bureau. Much of
SART's funding comes from federal
grants provided in response to the
Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

the US Airways letter: day. The attorney general wrote to
"US Airways' response to Mr. US Airways President and CEO
Barrett is both disappointing and Bruce Lakefield immediately
callous and raises more questions upon learning of the incident.

FEMA begins to expedite


reimbursement of costs


WASHINGTON The U.S.
Department of Homeland, Securi-
ty's Federal Management Agency
(FEMA) announced that it will
begin providing Florida counties
interim funding for eligible debris
removal costs and emergency pro-
tective measures incurred in the
immediate response to hurricanes
Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne.
The announcement means
counties will be able to receive up
to 50 percent of eligible emergency
work estimates in advance of each
individual reimbursement request
being processed by the state and
FEMA.
The funding is available for
emergency work performed within
the first 120 days after the disaster
declaration only and 'typically
includes stich activities as debris
removal, emergency protective
measures, and removal of safety
and threat hazards. The funding
may be used to cover such costs as
overtime payroll, equipment costs,
material purchases, and contracts
when these costs are incurred for
emergencywork.
FEMA and Florida Emergency
Management officials will immedi-
ately begin working with counties
to determine cost estimates of eligi-
ble work in order to start the
advanced reimbursements. The
state will receive and distribute the
funds to the applicants from FEMA


based on these estimates. Florida
emergency management officials
will determine the actual percent-
age of funds provided to each appli-
cant for emergency work.
Local governments and certain
non-profits who are eligible to
apply for public assistance will still
need to submit all requests for
reimbursement through normal
processing.. procedures, which
includes a review by both the state
and FEMA. Funds advanced
through expedited funding will be
offset against actual approved
emergency work projects.
To date approved disaster aid
for Hurricanes Charley, Frances,
Ivan and Jeanne has surpassed
$4.15 billion. Of that assistance,
approximately $450 million in pub-
lic assistance funds has been
approved.
FEMA pays 100 percent of the
costs of debris removal during the
first 72 hours following a hurricane.
For debris removal after that peri-
od, FEMA pays 90 percent of the
cost. The remaining 10 percent
,comes from state and local funds.
The actual removal, storage and
disposal of debris are preformed by
local governments, or by private
contractors selected by the local
governmental entities. The Stafford
Act regulates FEMA disaster assis-
tance.

"Florida's animal and agricul-
ture are at risk in many ways," Mr.
Christy said. "In addition to the
threat of hurricanes, we face poten-
tial wildfires and drought. We have
extensive borders and many ports
and airports that can be the entry-
way for plant and animal diseases.
"Agencies involved with ani-
mals and agriculture often work
independently of one another," he
said. "SART is improving prepara-
tion at the local, regional and state
level so that when disasters and
emergencies strike, people are
ready to help one another and
share resources."
SART is encouraging leaders of
producer groups, the Cooperative
Extension Service, government
agencies and animal and'agricul-
tural businesses to form county
SART organizations. "County
SARTs can cooperate with local
emergency managers in respond-
ing to the needs of animals and

agriculture and in communicating.
with the public," Christy said.
"The UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences is developing
SART training courses, and we
have a strong history of publishing
disaster preparedness material,
including the Disaster Handbook,"
said Carol Lehtola, associate pro-
fessor in the agricultural and bio-
logical engineering department.
"We're putting our expertise to
work in producing clear and
informative material."
SART will hold training sessions
in Belle Glade April 20-22 and in
Tallahassee May 18-20.
Training topics include foreign
animal disease detection, pet
friendly animal shelters, county
emergency planning for agriculture
and animals and quarantines.

Gilbert Chevrolet of Okeechobee
and Chevrolet Motor Division gave
away a Suburban to a lucky person
recently. Mr. Mickey K. Acree Jr. of
Glades'Counry donated ten dollars
to support the Future Farmers of
America (FFA) Scholarship'
Program. For his donation, Mr.
Acree received two chances to win a
Silverado Pickup Truck. Mr. Acree
won the Silverado Half Ton Crew
Cab Truck valued at $31,000!
At the beginning of the
school year, FFA members from
Okeechobee High School and
Moore Haven High School set a
goal to raise $10,000 for local and
state-wide scholarships for the FFA.
Gilbert Chevrolet of Okeechobee
and Chevrolet supported their
efforts.
With every five dollar donation,
individuals were registered to win a
2005 Chevrolet Silverado. The
Chevrolet Silverado is GM's best
selling vehicle and continues to set
the standards for performance and
capabilities. People making donations
could also present their donation
stub to Gilbert Chevrolet and
receive a free Chevrolet t-shirt.
Christa Luna, Gilbert Chevrolet's
general manager commented,
A great many people came by the
dealership to get the t-shirts. We
were enthused by the widespread
community support for this very
worthwhile fund-raising activity."


The scholarship fund program
started in August and culminated
with the drawing for the Silverado in
late November. The hurricane
season of last year put a damper on
the FFA members' activities,
but they persevered.
Mrs. Luna said, "We were
proud of the students and their
efforts. Our company supported
them all the way.
The' students increased the
coffers of the FFA scholarship funds
at both Okeechobee and Moore
Haven High Schools. These funds
will allow FFA members to develop
their farming and leadership skills.
Mickey Acree went to Gilbert
Chevrolet to claim his Silverado
prize valued at $31,000. He asked if
he could trade in the truck for a
Suburban. Mr. Acree has, five
children and he lamented that his
entire family could not fit in the
Silverado. The folks at Gilbert
Chevrolet went to bat for the Acree
family and Chevrolet Motor
Division agreed to give the Acree's a
new Suburban valued at $40,000
dollars in lieu of the Silverado.

Mrs. Luna said, "Agriculture is the
most important industry in this part
of Florida. Every time.we help our
farmers and the future farmers, we
help our community. We were also
very happy to be able to help the
Acree family."

pie involved in their community and the
involvement centered around informa-
tion what the city provides. What
services the city provides and how resi-
dents could become more involved in
government. I returned home. I; ran in
1999, and I was elected and I was
unopposed and I'm running again.
What motivated you to run: I'm run-
ning this time because the city of South
Bay is on the road of economic fiscal
recovery and a part of that recovery
means that growth from the east is
trickling down west. The city of South
Bay is strategically located on U.S. 27
and it is called the Crossroads of South
Florida. That means we are a potential
mecca for development. Definitely, I
have contributed to changes in South
Bay. Those changes include network-
ing with local businesses, working
through entrepreneurs, trying to
encourage the development of small
businesses and home-based busi-
nesses.. I also am a member of the
Office of Economic Development
Committee in the county. The focus of
that committee is economic develop-
ment countywide and I serve as a
Glades representative.
Why are you the best candidate: I
am an effective public servant. I'm
effective because I respond to resi-
dents' community needs business
needs. I have been able to identify what
resources may be available in the city
and outside the city. I am effective in
that I can communicate those needs at
the commission meetings. I'm effective
because I believe in a strategic plan-
ning process. We need to plan for our

Without her knowing, they organ-
ized a surprise party and pulled it
off without a hitch. It's an example,
Officer Seymore said, of how close
the girls have gotten to one another
and how well they work with Ms.
Seymore and the volunteers.
"We sit down and we talk, we
have girl talk," said Officer Sey-
more. "They feel comfortable with
each other and we try to instill
value in each'of them."

Continued From Page 1
According to Ms. Singer, the
public art concept incorporates all
types of possible artistic endeavors.
The project itself is open to the pos-
sibility of sculpture, painting and
design, landscaping or any combi-
nation of these. Early on, the key is
to enhance the exterior walls, and
Ms. Singer hopes to involve youth
in any project selected for the court-
house.
"Part of what makes the public
art project succeed is the commu-
nity's involvement," said Ms.
Singer.
But Ms. Singer said that the art
should also serve to make the site
more welcoming. That the focus

ing the theatre once more, it
became necessary to also build the
parking lot. While she thought of
using the entirety of the CDBG
money to pay for the parking lot,
subsequent land purchases in the
area made it impossible to build.
The rest of the money will be
used at the theatre itself.
Ms. Latimriore is hoping to restore
the prestige of the theatre once the
repairs are completed. If the appli-
cation is accepted, she plans on
working in conjunction with an
architectural firm and a manage-
ment company that might offer
input on the possible uses of the
theatre and the services and facili-
ties it could offer the community.
The idea is to make it a central
point of the city. With its prime
location just east of the dike, and
the city focusing on turning Paho-
kee into a resort town, city officials
are betting on the improvements to
revive the building.
The theatre hits its high point in
the years following its opening in
the mid 1900s, when it hosted mati-
nees to the crowds of people who
flocked on the weekends to catch
the latest movies.
The theatre remains intact, but
has suffered from wear over the
years.
The city submitted its CDBG
application on Friday.

future as we look at the development
along U.S. 27 north and south. I'm
effective because I'm energetic. As I go
back to voters and ask for their sup-
port, I have a track record where I have
identified and said to the residents, this
is what I have done and this is what I'm
trying to do. I cannot solve all of the
problems or challenges, but I work very
hard to find available information or
resources and to keep the communi-
cation open with follow up. Once you
start communication there should be a
chain where the process is constantly
active, constantly mobile until we can
find some resolution.
If elected, what will be your first act
or focus: I will continue to identify busi-
nesses for the U.S. 27 business corri-
dor with the focus on distribution. Such
as a Wal-Mart distribution center or a
factory that could use some of the
products that are produced in the
Glades and use the 27 corridor as a
way to transport those products. I will
do that. I will focus on economic devel-
opment on U.S. 27 corridor with the
idea of attracting and contacting a dis-
tribution outlet. In addition to that, I will
try to determine if Scripps may be inter-
ested in some investment in bio-tech-
nology on the U.S. 27 corridor, if noth-
ing but transportation.

What motivated you to run:
Because I believe that it's time for a


was also initiated and is run by the
police department. Under that pro-
gram, school children who have
been suspended from school are
kept busy through the daytime,
completing the schoolwork that
they may have otherwise missed.
As a deterrent to keep children
from looking to get suspended to
stay away from school a few days,
the students are dressed in orange
garb that resembles jailhouse uni-
, forms and are put to cleaning the
facility and, on the weekends, vol-
unteer their time in other commu-
nity efforts.
While, most parents who are
given the option of sending their
children to the suspension pro-

children to attend, the Sister 2 Sister


shouldn't be solely "on the way it
looks, but the way it feels."
Perhaps local artists will draw
on the rich heritage of the Glades
and its surroundings for inspiration,
she said. "It's the opportunity to
promote regional pride."
A March 4 deadline for the sub-
mittal of proposals is quickly
approaching. Artists interested are
asked to submit their designs for
judging. If selected, they will go on
to the semifinals, where a nar-
rowed down list of artists is select-
ed prior to the final decision.
The budget for the program
includes the artist's design fee, and

change. This city is at a crossroads and
needs someone on that commission
who is going to make sure that we're
going in the right direction. From where
-I sit, we're heading in the wrong direc-
tion in some instances. I think there are
some things we can do better together.
Why are you the best candidate:
I'm the best qualified. I'm from here,
I've lived here all my life off and on. For
the most part, I'm a part of this commu-
nity, I'm a product of this community.
I'm from the muck up.
If elected, what will be your first act

official act will be to begin to research
on the exact conditions of the city.
Exactly what's going on in the city, in
terms of budgetary matters, finance;
the whole nine. Just delve into every-
thing, start digging. Get my magnifying

What motivated you to run: What

never been a Hispanic person to win
the election in Belle Glade. I felt that the
Spanish people have to get more politi-

the Spanish people are not up to par,
they have kept quiet, they have to get
out and voice their opinion. They are


program works differently..Each of
the 23 girls in the program has
elected to join the program.
Started in December, the pro-
gram has seen much success. At
first, only a handful of girls were
involved, but over the next months
more and more girls have joined
the program. Four volunteers also
participate in the program and help
to supervise the young women on
field trips and at their monthly
meetings. Oftentimes, Officer Sey-
more said, it has been the girls
themselves who have recruited
Others to join.
Chief Albert Dowdell con-
tributed to the program's success
by supporting the effort of his
police officer. According to Officer
Seymore, the chief remains com-


transportation fees, among other
costs.
The only qualifications neces-
sary include being 18 years of age
and a resident of Palm Beach
County. Artists who provide sub-
missions for artwork and make it
past the preliminary round will get
preference in the semifinals, if they
live west of 20-mile bend. Glades
artists will get preference.

the lowest voting minority in the area
and we have to get them out to get
interested in politics.
Why are you the best candidate:
Number one, I'm the best candidate
because of my experience, my educa-
tional background. I come from good
values, good folk ways. I come from a
good family background. I work hard to
be successful with my funeral homes.
I'm an honest person and I truly do
care for the people of Belle Glade. I
believe we have to move this city for-
ward. I believe there has been too
much bashing back and forth. I believe
the community has to be brought
together, but first we have to bring ihe
commissioners together. They have
moved forth unbelievable. Asia-
Williams and Steve Wilson have done a
tremendous job as mayor and com-
missioner, but I believe there are a lot
more mountains to climb.
If elected, what will be your first act
or focus: The annexation of 715 and
people who are in the unincorporated
areas. I feel that the people pay high
taxes for water, they pay tax bills and
property taxes and they still don't have
a voice in the community itself. They
cannot vote within the city. I believe that
we have to annex these people into the
city. I believe strongly in annexation.

to reclaim our city.
