By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
PAHOKEE Don Nystrom,
with North Dad Community Devel-
opment, a company that special-
izes in housing developments,
would like to make a section just
outside of Pahokee his next proj-
ect.
The first phase of that plan con-
sists of the construction of 36 units
off of Joe Louis Avenue. A second
phase will provide 40 additional
units across the street, with the
eventual plan to include 100 con-
dominiums to complement the


townhouses.
According to Mr. Nystrom, in a
presentation before the city com-
mission, architects are working on
the design of the project, which
would encompass approximately
15 acres in the 'vicinity of the
Streamline area.
Those behind the project say
the homes will be in the affordable
range, with homes costing
between $90,000 and $110,000.
Working together with prospective
tenants, it might be possible to
shave off additional money to each


unit, Mr. Nystrom said, working
through special grant programs.
In the future,, the townhouses
can be enclosed within a gated
community, he said.
As the construction nears, Mr.
Nystrom and his company say-
they are thinking about other facili-
ties that can be built into the hous-
ing community that will appeal to
residents, like a park and exercise
area.
The process is going along
smoothly, according to presenters,
and the next step is in seeking

PD investigate hit and run


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
PAHOKEE Following an
accident that left one man seri-
ously injured, the Pahokee
Police Department is hot on the
trail of a hit and run suspect.
With strong leads, and with
the actual vehicle thought to
have been involved in the. acci-
dent recovered, officials
believe an arrest is near.
According to police, the
accident happened April 7, just
after 10 p.m., when dispatch
reported the hit and run call.
Units were called to the inter-
section of 4th Street and South
Lake Avenue, where a black
male was being held in support
by another unknown male.
Later identified as 66-year-
old Willie Davis, the man was
unable to respond to questions
from officers; Unable to
explain what had happened to
him due to his condition, the
only information he provided
officers with was his name.


Even when paramedics
arrived at the scene, the man
could not respond to ques-
tions. According to the police
report, the man was taken to
Glades General Hospital,
where doctors said he suffered
a broken right leg. A CAT scan
revealed that the man was fine,
though police officials say he
suffered a mild concussion.
Witnesses told police that
the man had been hit directly
by a car, the impact of which
caused the man to be flung
atop the vehicle, whose wind-
shield shattered as the man's
body crashed against it. They
described a white, four-door
vehicle that had a paper tag
instead of a metal plate and
tinted windows, with damage
to the car's front, on the pas-
senger's side.
Witnesses told police that
the car, which had been turn-
ing on to 4th Street from South
Lake when it hit the man who


was walking across the street,
had driven off immediately
after the crash.
The next day, Officer D.
Hachigian found a car match-
ing the description of the vehi-
cle used in the hit and run.
Police had received a tip that
the car had been taken to the
residence on Church Street,
though it had been covered
with a cover that hid its full fea-
tures. A table, used as a prop,
was placed against the cover
over the windshield area. With
assistance from the sheriff's
office, officers took four pic-
tures of the vehicle uncovered
and knocked on the residence,
though no one answered at
that time.
On April 9, officers made
contact with the owner of the
vehicle and have since inter-
viewed her, along with a friend

war concludes


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
PAHOKEE Focused in the
crosshairs of what he wouldn't
hesitate to describe as trigger-
happy lawyers out to make a
quick buck, Guy Bising and his
partners at Jellyroll's in Pahokee
found themselves in an unusual
predicament earlier this year.
It turns out the small restau-
rant and coffee shop posed- a
threat for someone out there in
North Florida, and Jellyroll's was
asked to drop its name.
Representatives of the com-
pany in -question contacted
owner Ann Rust regarding her
position on the matter, explained
Mr. Bising.
"I don't know that we have to
do anything," Ann, who liked the
rnarle, inspired L, a childhood'
friend, told them. "You're going
to have6to take of the whole city
of Pahokee if you want to take
on Jellyroll's.",


The threat seems to have
been enough.
After two letters asking Jelly-
roll's to cease and desist from
using the name any further, oh,
and a lot of publicity later, Mr.
Bising said the lawyers have kept
pretty much quiet. Nothing
more has been mentioned of the
potential lawsuit, and Mr. Bising
and his staff say they can now
focus their energy on continuing
to build up their local eatery.
With several months of oper-
ation under their belts, restau-
rant owners are understanding
the community and its tastes.
Restaurant favorites range
from customer to customer, but
the Tex-Mex selections such as
the enchilada, made of flour tor-
tillas from scratch, and other
southern frods keep regulars
coming back. Mr: Bising, who

INI brings Ideybis Gonzalez aboard


The Clewiston News, Belle
Glade Sun and Glades County
Democrat welcome News Clerk
Ideybis Gonzalez. A recent addi-
tion to the staff of the three news-
papers, Ms. Gonzalez looks for-
ward to her new assignment.
Ms Gonzalez, mother of three
and a resident of the Clewiston
area for three years now, says she
is primed and ready to serve the
community through a series of
upcoming articles and feature
stories that are poised to high-
light her writing talents.
Though she is a newcomer to
the newspaper industry, Ms.
Gonzalez has nevertheless con-
stantly turned to writing as a way
of expressing herself and lists
writing poetry as one of her
favorite hobbies.
Cuban-born, and raised in


Miami, Ms.
Gonzalez is
enjoying her
new home in
Clewiston and i
talks of the city
almost as :
much as of the
people who
live in it.
"Clewiston is a Ideybis
small commu- Gonzalez
nity where
everybody is
really friendly," she says. "It's a
good place to raise a family."
Before coming to work for
Independent Newspapers, Ms.
Gonzalez worked at Southern
Gardens and Sugar Realty.
Since coming to work for the
newspaper in mid-March, she
has been praised for the work


she has done. "Of all the appli-
cants, she was the only one we
recognized something special in
that could develop into a real
asset," said News Editor Mark
Young.
Ms. Gonzalez is quite happy
with her new job and hopes to
continue serving in her position
and through good work advance
her career in the future. Her goal
is to become a full-time reporter.
"I see myself here for many
years to come," said Ideybis,
who was also quick to point to
her desire to serve her communi-
ty. I like working with peo-
ple. I like to help people, to show
them that we care about them."
If she continues the work she
has been doing, it seems Ms.
Gonzalez's aspirations just might
become reality.

Clark Environmental Mosquito

Do children need vitamin supplements?


Should children take vitamin
supplements?
Many parents wonder if their
children are getting all of the vita-
mins and minerals they need.
Some children are particularly
"picky" eaters or go through phas-
es in which they would exist on a
diet of macaroni and cheese and
French fries unless coerced,
threatened or bribed to eat other
foods.
In general, most nutritionists
and doctors advise parents to offer
a variety of good foods at each
meal. The best way for the body to
absorb vitamins and nutrients is
from foods. A balanced, varied
diet, with lean meat, dairy foods
such as milk and cheese and at
least five servings of fruits and veg-
etables a day (nine servings is rec-
ommended) should provide all of
the nutrients a child needs. For
older children and adults, a "serv-
ing" size is about half a cup.
How much should a serving


A :;:

Life


with Katrina Elsken

size be for a small child? One
nutritionist I interviewed suggest-
ed using the child's age as a guide.
For a two-year-old, two table-
spoons of a vegetable is a "serv-
ing". For a four-year-old, four
tablespoons .is an appropriate
serving size.
For some children, pediatri-
cians may advise a daily vitamin
supplement. Chewable and liquid
vitamins are available for children
who are not ready to swallow vita-
min pills.
Children's vitamins are usually


safe, as long as- they are taken as
directed. Some parents mistakenly
give children "mega-doses" of vita-
mins hoping to ward off illness.
Taking too many vitamins can be
dangerous. Vitamin overdose can
cause stomachache, headaches,
diarrhea, nausea and cramps.
Parents should always consult
the child's pediatrician before giv-
ing the child any nutritional sup-
plements.
If you do give vitamin supple-
ments, don't skimp on quality.
Consult the doctor about what
type of vitamins are best for your
child. Remember that-chewable
vitamins have expiration dates and
can degrade if exposed to heat.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise plan, consult
your doctor. This is especially
important if you are on prescrip-
tion medications. Some drugs
interact badly with foods that
would otherwise be considered
"healthy".

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.
Like some answers
I have a question for the mayor of Pahokee. Why is that you vehement-
ly support a known felon who continues to sell drugs? Why do you sup-
port him over your own police department? I'd like an answer and like to
knowwhyyou wanted to get your hands on the bag of marijuana that was
in the car. Are your prints on that? Could be interesting to find out.
Can't find good help
It's a shame that the city of Belle Glade can't keep good help in the
pro shop at the golf course. I've been a member for a long time and this
is unbelievable. Tammy was the best thing that happened to the pro
shop. It's always clean, always neat, always pleasant and breathtaking
when you walk inside. She always helps people. As far as greens-keep-
ers, you need Jess and Jerry back. The one you have know can't even
pass a drug test. Bringing the person from the marina, with a known
felony record to the pro shop, and the golf course, the director needs to
rethink this. How can you have people that fail drug tests work for the
city? Good luck Tammy. We understand why you left, I wouldn't want
my reputation tarnished either.
Nerves getting to you?
Mayor Wilson of Belle Glade was overheard asking another com-
missioner why the (heck) was Sherry Delaney at the meeting? Well,
mayor she does happen to be a resident of Belle Glade unlike your new
homeboy on the commission. So, she does have a right to attend. It
appears she's obviously still concerned about the city. What's the mat-
ter? Does she make you nervous?

Three stooges not funny
I attended the city commission in Belle Glade and that's a disgrace the
way those three stooges do. Belle Glade deserves better. Belle Glade can
do better. This mayor we got is a disgrace. You all need help. Please, Belle
Glade, wake up, you can do better than whatwe are doing.
Pope John Paul overlooked
I was at the city commission last night where they celebrated Martin
Luther King's assassination, but not one time did they mention Pope
John Paul. They should have been celebrating Pope John Paul. He was
the real hero.
That's so sad
I'm really upset about this darn J.P. Sasser thing. He's allowed to use
the F-word over and over again and is allowed to talk in terms like,
"Don't get your panties in a wad." But when an ordinary citizen like
Larry VWright, who's a friend of mine, calls or writes a letter, he's treated
like a common criminal. We all know J.P treats common criminals like
a God, so why isn't Larry treated that way by the mayor. Mr. Mayor, you
are a sad, sad person.

Where's the other side?
I'm calling in response to the Duran resignation never happened. I
think possibly this Mr. Mark Young should probably interview every-
body that he's talking about in this article. It seems to me that you are
taking one side of the story. This is just from an outsider reading this.
Also, one minute Mr. Duran says he resigned, the next he says never
resigned, so I don't really know what to believe as far the police chief
goes, but he's gone and we need to move forward.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. This callerwanted to make several
different points. Callers are reminded, in order to prevent their opinions
from being edited for length, that if they submit a letter to the editor,
their full comments would be printed. Speak Out calls should be rela-
tivelybriefandtothepoint
But they were told to
I would like an explanation on "Why oh why." I have a question for
the city manager of Pahokee and the mayor and even some of the com-
missioners. Why are the city manager and the mayor trying to discredit
the newly formed Economic Development Board by flat out lying
about what's in the commission meeting. I happened to be at a meet-
ing when the Economic Board was sitting there, but I don't remember
them discrediting anyone. Can someone find out what this caller is talk-
ing about? Because the other readers don't really understand where
this is coming from. Also, regarding the Sunshine Law? Perhaps some-
one needs to call the city attorney what their opinion is. Breaking the
Sunshine Law is very serious, however you have to be.sure before you
start quote something like that.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. This caller cited a sheriffs report
where a deputy told the city commissioners to go to city hall and ques-
tioned thevalidity of the Sun's opinion that the lawwasviolated. The law,
which has been quoted, dearly says thatit is illegal for two or more elect-
ed officials to gather formally or casually to discuss city business without
providing public notice. This is apparentlywhat occurred that night, at the
scene and then at city hall. A sheriffs deputy does not have the authority
to call an emergency session of city government employees.
Wasting money
Ever since I've been in Belle Glade, I attend the city commission
meetings and see how this city manager and city commission wastes
your money, you the taxpayers of Belle Glade. You should attend and see
how reckless they are with your money. This is a shame and a disgrace.

Protecting the innocent -- not
Concerning the whole situation in Pahokee. Several of us-were sit-
ting around talking about the night involving Mr. Robert Love where the


mayor and city manager came to his rescue. We were wondering why
were they not arrested for obstruction of justice or interfering with the
duties of a police officer? Either by the Pahokee police or the sheriff's
department? If that had been me or some of my friends, we'd be in jail.

Great job Black Gold Committee
I'd like to tell all the people on the Black Gold committee that you
did a wonderful job this year like in the past. Itwas kind of more fun this
time. Good job guys. Come to Grassy Waters or better yet, come to
Pahokee for the first ever On the Muck.
Cable company lines
I know this is nothing major, but I walk to work everyday in Paho-
kee, and I'd like to know why that we are getting close to hurricane sea-
son, why has Adelphia Cable left all of the damaged lines hanging
down in the street, on the sidewalks, in people's yards, all these
months. I guess they are just going to leave them there until they rot?

The kids love him
One thing I know. People can say anything they want to say about
Robert Love. One thing I can say, they can't say nothing about Robert
Love than the kids. If you think the kids don't love Robert Love or the
people at the schoolhouse don't love Robert Love, why don't ya'll
check to the schoolhouse? Why don't ya'll check the kids. Ya'll can't
destroy somebody by just running your mouth.

Felons are people too
Oh, convicted felons. I'm just going to name one and there are many
who lead productive lives like Robert Love. You think of a convicted felon
as a nobody, well let me just name one Nelson Mandella. He was
locked up 26 years and that's not a convicted felon, then I don't know
what is. He become the first black president of South Africa.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. We also believe that once a person
has paid their debtto society, that theyshould be afforded every opportuni-
ty to prove themselves as a valuable member of society in most cases.
However, Nelson Mandellawas held for more than two decades asapolit-
ical prisoner. There is a difference between political prisoners held abroad
and convicted felons herein the states. Butyour premise inaccurate in stat-
ing there are manyconvicted felonswho are released from prisons and go
on to leadveryproductive lives and in some cases become outstanding cit-
izens based on their past experiences by helping others.

Great job chief
I'm a citizen of Belle Glade. I'd just like to say thanks to the chief of
police for a job well done. I like the way he did at the Black Gold. He ran
things great. I think it was the best Black Gold that we ever had. The
chief was on the job, he had his officers on the job, and he did a won-
derful job. Chief, we're glad to have you as our Belle Glade chief of
police. Good job, keep it up.

Run far, run fast
I would like to say to the city manager what is his problem? He
comes to a big event, such as the Black Gold and he's only there for 15
minutes and he runs. Hey, city manager, why don't you tell the people
the truth? Tell the Belle Glade residents the truth. You are not qualified
to be the city manager.

From there to here
I would like the citizens of Pahokee to know that the city manager of
Pahokee called me the worst possible citizen in the community and
that I've never given anything to the community. In turn, the director of
the chamber of commerce called me out of the blue and told me I was
no longer to be involved with the Grassy Waters Festival. The entire
Glades knows that (I) am the Grassy Waters Festival. I questioned them
about this and no answers of course. I think we all know-why. A
man speaks out in the Sun newspaper with a letter to the editor and
two weeks later he is still (inaudible). However, two years ago, the
mayor and chamber handed me the highest honor in the community
- I was citizen of the year.

NeW law?
Here's a new note to the members of Pahokee's non-elite. Evidently
there's a new law that has been passed in Pahokee that if you leave a mes-
sage on someone's answering machine it's considered harassing.

Don't beat your chest too loud
This is addressed to Mayor Sasser. I read your letter to the editor and
some of your things were very factual and some of it wasn't. Like the
crime watch and Citizens on Patrol like that was something that just
happened? There has been one for many years although it wasn't very
active. Through all the turmoil and trouble that we've had, it kind of got
served to the wayside. But get your facts,together before you go beating
your chest and saying you're King Kong. It needs to be correct in what-
ever you say. However, some of your points were very well taken. But
remember, checkyour mouth before you put it in gear.

Is he right after all?
I was at the city commission on Tuesday night in Pahokee and per-
haps that man who writes those letters to the editor that everybody gets
so mad about he's right. It looks as though the mayor is a complete
liar, as well as the woman who runs the chamber of commerce. I won-
der how many people out there who owns or operates a business
know that their fees every year goes to cover up for a mayor who cov-
ers up for a felon who continues to sell drugs on the streets of Pahokee.
This is really crazy. I'm going to go to more commission meetings
because I learned a lot this past Tuesday. Thank you for offering this
way to let the word out.

Can't even say hi?
I just a call telling me there's a new law in Pahokee that if you leave a
message on a machine, even saying, "Hello this is Larry, Bob, or Joe,"
or whoever it's considered harassment. J.P. makes lots of new laws.


Community Profile: Allie Biggs


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza

Q: What is your name?
A: Allie Howard Biggs. My
mom named me after a friend of
hers, in fact, she allowed her
friend .to name me; actually it
was Allie Vann Howard. After I
married, I dropped the middle
name and took my middle
name.
Q: Where were you born?
A: I was born in Waynesboro,
Georgia. My mom and dad
decided to come to Florida for a
better living and they brought
me here at the age of six
months. They came as migrants.
My father was a farmer.
Q: What do you do?
A: I'm a city commissioner.
That means that I am elected by
the people to help look over the
welfare of the city and the peo-
ple in the city. I do that by voting
for things that I think will sup-
port for the city, and those things
.that I think are not good for the
city I vote against them. It's not a
one-man show, as you know,
and we strive to work together
for the overall betterment of the
city.
Q: Why do you do what you
do?
A: I feel I was born to make a
difference. I love doing what I do
because I love-people. I love the
Lord with all my heart and might
and, definitely, I love my city.
Q: Can you describe yourself?
A: Allie is young lady that was
born to James and Pinky
Howard. When I was born I was
raised with two brothers and
one sister. Out of that, it seems
as though God always had a spe-
cial calling in my life. Allie is all
that God has me to be. I strive
daily to please Him. I know this
may not be a religious time, but
'my life is spiritually inclined, so I
have to go with it that way. I'm
very spiritual. I was brought up
that way and I wouldn't have it
any other way. Whatever I do in
life, I seek God's guidance first. If
I don't get the guidance from
God, then I don't take that risk.
Then I'm playing Russian
Roulette with my own life.
(Q: Are you a kind person?)
I'm better than kind, I'm a king
and loving person. (Q: You can
get upset?) I very well get upset
as any other human being does.
If I'm wrong, I'm the first one to
go say I'm sorry..,
Q: What scares you?
A: What scares me in my life
is how people can easily destroy
or murder someone with their
tongue, when they know in their
hearts that they are lying. That
scares me more than anything I
know, Jose. People in general,
how we can destroy each other
with our tongues, when we're
knowing all the time, it's not the
truth. (Q: Do you see that in
Pahokee?) All the time. All the
time. What I see is if you're not
doing what people want you to,
do, or saying what people want
you to say, then they hate your
inward parts. But if you are satis-
fying everybody, they love you to
death. To me, that's hypocritical.
Life is about people being
human beings: We make mis-
takes, we learn from our mis-
takes, we try to correct it and we
move on. To tear each other
down is one of the worst things I
know. It's lateral. It's backwards.
Q: What is your favorite
song?
A: I Learned How to Lean and
Depend on Jesus. A lot of times,

try to solve my own problems, I
try to fix things that I had no
authority to fix. The song, I think
Lee Williams sings it now. It
used to not be my favorite, but
when I heard it, it became my
favorite. When I learned that
song, it made me think, that if I
just depend on Jesus, everything
else will be all right.
Q: What irks you?
A: It irks me to really see us,
as human beings get so angry at
each other, until we want to
destroy. When none of us have a
life, we can't put a life into any-
one's breath. Why should we
want to take it? To me, that's
playing God. Who are we to be
playing God? I know that emo-
tion is a part of our life it just
irks me to see all of us saying we
are working for the same com-
mon cause and we don't do any-
thing about it. We say we want
one thing, but we do another.
Q: What is a memory you
hold dear to you?
A: The memory that I will
hold dearest to me is, regardless
of whaJwe, had, the love that my
mom showed .us as 'four,.chil-
dren, after our atrhei having,left
us, the love that my mom took
and nurtured us. All four of us as
children grew up, never having
gone to jail, never having been
in any kind of trouble. That love
was so strong it makes me
know that I too must love.
My mom's name is Pinky
Howard, she is alive and well, 85
years old. She's a doll and she
works four days a week, every
day. My mom didn't have that
much education, but she's a
proud, sweet, black woman that
opens her house up to anybody.
She cooks meals on Sunday, and
numerous people every Sunday
go there and eat. My mom is the
head usher in-her church. She
loves God and she loves people.
Her proudest moment was
when I was elected city commis-
sioner. When I got married, she
was blushing, but I think she
was blushing more when I
became city commissioner.
(Q: What did she tell you?)
She just stood there and cried.
She stood there and cried. (Q:
Did you cry?) You know I did.
You know I did.

Dear Doc Savvy. Now that we
are well into the spring, what are
some common afflictions we may
see more commonly with dogs and
cats? Thanks Doc, Bob in RPB.
Well hello there
Bob! That's a great
question and a -
loaded one too!
First let's talk bugs.
In the spring we a
see more bugs, j
insects and creepy |
crawlers in gener-
al. Summer time too!
So, we have more fleas, ticks,
and mosquitoes that may cause skin
problems and diseases such as
Tapeworms, Lymes Disease,
Ehrlichia Disease, and Heartworm
Disease. So upkeep on prevention is
the key to success. Vestibular Dis-
ease is another commonly seen
problem this time of the year, espe-
cially in the cat! This is possibly due
to ingestion of a local species of
"Blue Skink" that cats just can't
resist! Vestibular Disease affects a
cat's coordination and balance, so
that the whole world is spinning!
Treatment is a combination of
antibiotics and anti nausea medica-
tion. Vestibular Disease may last as
long as eight to 10 weeks poor
cats! Take care Bob, and Thanks for
that marvelous question! Doc Savvy.
Dear Doc Savvy. Is it true that
early neutering of male cats can
lead to urinary tract infections?
Joan in Belle Glade.


Hey, and yes Joan it can! I do
advocate early spaying and neuter-
ing for a million reasons and it isn't
always a perfect situation!
If you neuter a male cat very
early in his growth stage, his urethra
may not have enough time to fully
develop! The urethra is the tube that
delivers and empties urine from the
urinary bladder into the kitty box -
hopefully that is! Hee Hee!
If the urethra has not fully
matured, it may be too narrow.
Sometimes urine bi-products such
as crystals are'formed and can't
pass through the urethra causing
irritation and blockage. This is a
serious emergency not to men-
tion a painful situation for your cat.
Now Joan, this does not happen
in every early neutered male cat!
But it is a possibility. Most people
choose early neutering as an option
to save some money. So, if you can
afford to wait until the cat is six
months old, you may avoid this situ-
ation! However, there is no guaran-
tee! Cats are notorious for urinary
and kidney disease. Instead use pre-
vention! Consider feeding your cat a
good urinary formula feed.
Awesome question Joan! Take
care, Doc Savvy.

crack burglary spree


Hendry County Sheriff Ronnie
Lee has reported that four sepa-
rate burglaries with thefts and
damages in excess of $1,500
have been solved with the arrest
of three juveniles.
The addresses, dates, and vic-
tims of the burglaries are March
24, at the residence of Francisco
Gallegos on 2036 Steamboat Cir-
cle, in Labelle, a car stereo val-
ued at $350 was stolen; late April
10 or early April 11, a -pick-up
truck owned by Javier Castillo of
3101 Tulip Road, in LaBelle, was
burglarized with an assortment
of hand tools valued at $200; the
juveniles then walked tto the resi-
dence of Annette Schuetz at 3003
Tulip Road where they broke into
a storage shed, stealing a weed-
eater, fishing equipment, and
power tools valued at $450.
Their last stop of the crime-
filled night was at Earl Claxton's
residence at 3071. West Briar-
wood Circle, in LaBelle, where
they gained entry by breaking a


window in the rear of the resi-
dence. Once inside, they
attempted to remove a stereo
system from a car in the garage.
Mr. Claxton was awakened by
the noise and called the sheriff's
office. As the responding deputy
arrived, the juveniles fled the
scene after causing damages of
$500 to the home and vehicle.
The investigation of the series
of burglaries by Criminal Investi-
gations Unit Sergeant Joe Lee,
led to the three juveniles who,
.after questioning by Sgt. Lee,
admitted to the burglaries and
gave explicit details of each
crime.
Through information gained
during the interviews, most of
the stolen property was recov-
ered and returned to the, owners.
Each juvenile was charged with
one count of burglary of an occu-
pied dwelling,, three counts of
grand theft, and two counts of
criminal mischief and booked
into the Hendry County jail.

Glades Kids, an after-school pro-
gram in Belle Glade, was recently
recognized for another group of
children she's in charge of: Three
Girl Scout troops.
Sister Cavanaugh was named
Scout Leader of the Year by the
Arthur R..Marshall Foundation, a
non-profit West Palm Beach organ-
ization dedicated to the preserva-
tion and restoration of the Florida
Everglades.
"I'm thrilled and surprised," said
Cavanaugh, who leads Belle Glade
Girl Scout troops 719, 449 and 910.
"The Marshall Foundation is doing
some wonderful work to save the
Everglades and I'm honored to be
recognizedby them."
Sister Cavanaugh received the
award March 2 at the Marshall
Foundation's Annual Anniversary
and Recognition Luncheon at the
Kravis Center in West Palm Beach.


Couresy pr.:ilo, Mort Kaye
Sister Laura Cavanaugh received her Scout Leader of the
Year award at the Kravis Center for her dedication to Glades
area scouts and her efforts to get her young scouts involved
in projects to help save the Everglades.


Also honored were Lake Worth
sculpture artist Norman Gitzen Jr.,
who was named Volunteer of the
Year, longtime Florida Department
of Environmental Protection scien-
tist Herb Zebuth, who received the


award for Conservationist of the
Year, and Boy Scout Jeff Whitney
Jr., who was the 2005 recipient of
the Marshall Foundation's Eagle
Scout Award.
Sister Cavanaugh, who is


known simply as "Sister Laura" to
the many children she serves at
Glades Kids, has participated in
Marshall Foundation events for sev-
eral years and never turns down an
opportunity to provide children
with environmental education
opportunities. Recently, a group of
Glades Kids' students planted trees
on Torry Island as part of a Marshall
Foundation project to restore a his-
toric pond apple forest.
"The kids really enjoyed it," said
Sister Laura.
Foundation Executive Director
John Marshall said he was proud to
have all four award recipients asso-
ciated with his organization.
"We are lucky to have a lot of
good people who work with us,
and these are some of the best.
When I see how smart and dedicat-
ed our volunteers are, I know we
will succeed in saving the Ever-
glades," he said.

Belle Glade Woman's Club helps support troops


The Woman's Club of Belle
Glade has been purchasing items
that the service men. in Iraq are in
need. The International Affairs Dis-
trict 10 project for all Women's
Clubs was supplying items to the
troops in Iraq.
The Woman's Club of Belle
Glade decided to join in this project
to make sure Glades service men
and women were able to receive
these packages as well'. The club


collected items such as chap-
sticks, sun block, hand sanitizer,
dental floss, toothpaste, powered
kool-aid, snacks, candies, batteries,
and many other items from the
wish list provided from the military.
So far there have been 12
names of service members who
will be receiving a box full of much
needed items.
Ms. Cayson said, "As the chair of
this project, it feels rewarding to be
able to just help a couple of our


troops who are serving to protect
us and the least that we can do is
send our service men from the
Glades a little something so that
they know we are appreciative of
what they are doing for our coun-
try". I've spoken with several
moms, dads, and friends of these
soldiers who say they are so glad
that we are sending packages to
their loved ones because they tell
me that many servicemen don't
have anyone to. send tliem any-
1 I


thing and it can get expensive
when you mail a box overseas. I'm
just glad that we are able to help
out in this way."
The Woman's Club of Belle
Glade would like to continue this
project and if any one in the com-
munity would like to contribute or
provide additional names to the
list, please contact Elizabeth
Cayson at (561) 996-0129.

Lady Tigers return


from track districts


By Mark Young
Clewiston High School's Lady
Tiger track squad returned home
from the District 2A track meet with
a fifth place overall finish out of the
11 participating schools.
The squad will not head to
regionals as a team, but will some
finalists to the next level after cap-
turing a pair of victories, to compli-
ment a few top three finishes.
Clewiston's Nicole Pope was a
dominate force on the day within
the shot put competition and her
closest competitor would be more
than three feet off of her winning
distance of 35 feet. Pope had some
friendly company in the top eight
scoring positions with teammate
Dynesha Thomas placing sixth.
The Lady Tigers had a valuable
points day in the field events with
Teadra Jackson finishing fourth in
the discus with teammate Brittany
McNeal finishing in sixth place.
Curtissa Franklin grabbed the final
points position in the triple jump
with an eighth place, performance.


Evelyn Thompson launched
herself more than 16 feet to claim
second place in the long jump
event, but it would not be her last
appearance among the district's
top finishers. Thompson joined up
with teammates Alissa Abreau,
Mary Hegley, and Tequilla Weston
to win the 4x400:relay event with a
time of 4:14.53.
Thompson also secured third
place in the 100-meter dash with
Weston going one spot better for
second place. Weston would also
take third in the 200-meter dash and
Hegley captured third in the 400.
Bishop Verot would claim top
honors at districts with 126 points.
Immokalee also grabbed 126
points for a two-way draw at the
top while North Port High School
finished third with 88 points. Gold-
en Gate was fourth with 71 points
and Clewiston finished in a strong
fifth place with 69 points.
Dubar, Lemon Bay, Riverdale,
LaBelle, Palmetto Ridge, and Lake
Placid rounded out the field.

Lamb and Cass win Sugar-fest bass tourney


By Mark Young
What would a festival be with-
out the addition of a fishing tourna-
ment? The Clewiston Bass Anglers
know the answer to that question
and for the sixth straight year the
annual Sugar Festival has been
complimented by a little on-the-
water competition in the form of
the sixth annual Sugar-fest bass
tournament.
; Anglers spread out across the


waters of Lake Okeechobee, sail-
ing out of Mary Ann Martin's Mari-
na, April 17 and after full day on the
water, it would prove to be a good
day for'fishing. The weight totals
brought into the scales. could have
easily been related to any two-day
tournament, but these anglers had
d stellar day of fishing and, at the
end of the day, more than 33
pounds would claim the winning
weight.

Mark Lamb and Mike Cass
teamed up to haul 33.05 pounds to
claim the top prize and despite
impressive weights from the com-
petition, sailed away with the victo-
ry by just under five pounds. It did-
n't hurt that Lamb brought home
the big bass prize of the day with a
Lake Okeechobee Hawg tipping
the scales at 9.03 pounds.
Taking second place with a
weight of 27.09 pounds was the


team of Jim Medlin and Steve
Yeatts. With a weight of 23 pounds,
Rick Burton and Todd Kursey cap-
tured third place. Rounding out the
top four were Mike Mills and Har-
lan Griggs who brought 13.03
pounds to the scales.
In all, the tournament paid out
$2,350 to the top anglers, but most
everybody took home something
with hundreds of prizes being
awarded.

of the city in the process. ,
"I think we do need to look very
closely," said City Attorney Lynn
Whitfield, "even before we start
talking about annexation." She
agreed, though, that the commis-
sion, if it chose to do so, could write
a letter of support early in that
process.
The commission voted unani-
mously to provide Mr. Nystrom and
his company a letter of support to
help them continue to plan to
make the project happen.


Market
Continued From Page 1
But to make it a success, there
are other. opportunities that the
company is willing to situate that,
while drawing mrn re peopkl- to the
3pen air market, will also help
Jraw more people to the city itself,
explained-Mr. Nelson.
"In order for the open-air mar-
ket concept to work, we need
more things," to attract people, he
:old commissioners.
He plans on helping to build a
museum that will draw on the rich
culturee and heritage of the Glades,
:o display pieces that will draw peo-
ple in from even the coast, and
allow locals to catch up on the
area's history.
"The people on the coast are
always continually looking for
something to entertain them-
selves," he said, noting how the
museum and open-air market
would appeal to a segment that
usually does not visit the area. A
:ivic center for use by residents and
the city in general, would be a third
addition in Mr. Nelson's plans. The
nearby recreation center would
continuee to be a part of that space.
Without seeing the city's pro-
gressing master plan for the facili-
ties near the old high school, Mr.
Nelson was surprised to learn,


munity? Do you dance, participate
with a step team, sing, recite poetry
or do praise dances? If so, we want
you to come and show off your tal-
ent and win great prizes for each
category. If you are interested,
please contact Mrs. Jessie Terry at
(561) 202-7701 or Mrs. Lawanda
Harper at (561) 924-3126.

tion please contact Elizabeth

Mayor J.P. Sasser said the city
would hate to see the project not
succeed.
"We are very excited about this.
This is something Pahokee has
needed for a very long time," said
Mayor Sasser. Of the city's experi-
ence with land developers in the
past, he said, "We tend to get real
excited, then disappointed."
Mr. Nystrom assured that would
not be the case with his project.
There is no concrete timeline yet
for the construction of the homes.
The next step is to submit the loan
application and wait for the
response, according to Mr. 'Nys-
trom.


when discussing his idea to City
Manager Lillie Latimore, that it fit
closely in line with the city's own
idea for that area.
Mr. Nelson asked the commis-
sion whether it supported the idea.
"We're excited about the idea
that the master plan .:,an be done,"
said Vice-Mayor Keith Babb. "By
concept, I certainly agree to it."
Mr. Nelson's idea for the open-
air market resulted from noticing,
he said, that, in his 35 years of visit-
ing the area, he had to now con-
front "the fact that it never
changed." With such a valuable
natural resource as access to one of
the largest lakes in the United
States, he said, it is "an enigma that
something as major as this go terri-
bly underutilized."
In planning his concept, Mr. Nel-
son researched the city's part in
accessing the lake and how Ever-
glades Adventures, a resort busi-
ness on the lake, is progressing
with construction plans,for the
facility. When he saw that all was
moving along, he thought it was
time to approach the commission.
With the conceptual approval
of the commission, Mr. Nelson said
he will be meeting with the city
manager in formulating a business
plan for the implementation of the
idea. He will also be reviewing the
latest revision of the master plan
concept.


Jellyroll's
Continued From Page 1
knows his way around a kitchen-,
serving in the Air Force, he and six
others cooked meals for approxi-
mately 1,000 soldiers daily, morn-
ing, lunch and dinner he has
gotten used to his routine of wak-
ing early to open the restaurant.
A cross-section of the commu-
nity is represented in the cus-
tomers, who enjoy the restaurant's
self-proclaimed eclectic and cozy
atmosphere. Mr. Bising himself
often asks customers whether they
enjoyed their foods, most often to
an agreeable response. Of course,
the low price tag of food doesn't
hurt either.
The business is going well, Mr.
Bising said, though he admits it
should be doing better to sustain
itself in the long run. The morning-
and afternoon crowd keep the
momentum going through the day,
but that drops off later in the
evening. Breakfast and lunch see
lots of business, with customers
after waking in the morning getting
up to get their cup of coffee and at
noon grabbing something to eat
before heading back to the job. The
evening, though, tapers off.
It might be the popular miscon-
ception that the restaurant closes
early, when, in reality, the business
doesn't close until 8 p.m. each day,
opening at 7 in the morning. The
only day off for Jellyroll's is Sunday.
On Saturday, which Mr. Bising


thought would have worked out to
be the busiest day of the week, the
restaurant struggles to keep cus-
tomers coming in throughout the
day, and only notes an'influx of cus-
tomers in the morning. His guess is
that residents wake up in the morn-
ing and spend the rest of the day on
the coast, doing their shopping
elsewhere.
The key is in tapping the Belle
Glade market, said Mr. Bising.
Though the city of Pahokee itself
provides its share of customers,
having customers coming in from
Belle Glade could add a substantial
boost.
Jellyroll's counts with a number
of customers, who, simply to sup-
port the business itself, can be seen
eating at the restaurant three meals
a day. It is Pahokee's own residents
that seem to appreciate the new
shot of vitality that the restaurant
with its opening had on the city.
Mr. Bising points to the growth
of the city as a potential source of
future business. With the city vying
to turn the town into an eco-tourist
destination, with such amenities as
the Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail
nearby and access to Lake Okee-
chobee, the future is limitless, he
said, for both the city and the
restaurant.
"Pahokee can be to Lake Okee-
chobee what Tahoe is to Lake
Tahoe," said Mr. Bising enthusiasti-
cally, looking across at the dike just
beyond the mouth of the lake.
With the restaurant greeting
tourists on-their way to the lake, the

Until then, the restaurant
remains open to all those interest-
ed in sampling the delicious cui-
sine. With a good staff to support
the business, and chefs and cooks

the food, Jellyroll's continues serv-
ing the community.
"It's a cute, weekend communi-
ty that can become a recreation'

community of Pahokee. and the
plans to appeal to the coastal
tourist. "With that kind of attitude,
we'll make it."

vehicle at the time of the crash.
According to investigators, the
owner of the vehicle told police
she was working at her job in
Royal Palm Beach at the time of
the crash, and loaned her car to a
Friend. Earlier that day, before
going to work, the owner of the
car noticed that her car was not


home and phoned the friend,
who said she did not know
where the car was. Because the
owner thought the friend was
playing with her, and was in pos-
session of the car, the owner did
not report it stolen and went to
work. She told investigators she
later learned the car had been
involved in a hit and run acci-
dent.
Police were also able to inter-
view the friend, though she tells a
different story. According to the
female friend, she purchased

something to eat before heading
back home to Pahokee.
According to her, after getting
home, she hung the keys to the
car on her wall and walked to a
friend's house. When she got
back, she said the car and the
keys were missing, though she
did not report the car stolen
because it happened often.
Investigators say the friend
was unable to provide receipts to


prove she had been to the mall,
and changed specific times relat-
ing to her story on several occa-
sions. A brief investigation
revealed she does not have a job
and had been driving on a sus-

After the accident, the car

New UF/IFAS economic study out


GAINESVILLE In a new
study that reveals the changing
face of Florida agriculture, Uni-
versity of Florida researchers say
the forestry industry now has
the biggest economic impact on
the state eclipsing citrus, veg-
etables and ornamentals in
terms of output.
Annual output or sales
impacts in the forest products
industry exceed $16.6 billion,
creating 133,475 jobs, with $7.5
billion in value-added personal
and business income, and gen-
erating more than $581 million
in local, state and federal taxes
(excluding income taxes), said
Alan Hodges, an economist in
UF's .Institute of Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences, or UF/IFAS.
"Citrus is the crop most peo-
ple associate with Florida, and
the state still leads the nation in
citrus production, but our study
indicates forestry is now the
economic heavyweight in the
state's $67 billion agricultural
and natural resources industry,"
he said.
By comparison, the output in
the fruit and vegetable industry
is approximately $12.8 billion,
generating 125,000 jobs and
$437 million in taxes, according
to the most recent data sources.
The environmental horticulture
or "ornamentals" industry,.
which includes' production of
landscape plants, flowers,
foliage, turfgrass and associated
landscaping services, :generates
$8.9 billion in output impacts in
Florida.
While forestry has a bigger
economic impact on the state,-
environmental horticulture still
generates more jobs 154,205
- than forestry in Florida, he
said. Environmental horticulture


also is the fastest growing seg-
ment of agriculture in the United
States, and Florida is ranked as
the second largest production
state in the nation.
Hodges, who studies the eco-
nomics of Florida agriculture
with David Mulkey, a professor
in the UF/IFAS food and
resource economics depart-
ment, said other faculty con-
tributed to the report on forestry.
They include Janaki Alavalapti
and Douglas Carter, associate
professors in the UF/IFAS School
of Forest Resources and Conser-
vation.'
The forestry. industry is con-
centrated mainly in North and
Central Florida, with more than
16-million acres or 25,000-
square miles of forests, repre-
senting nearly half of the state's
land. area, Hodges said. Forests
in Florida are managed to pro-
duce a variety of wood and fiber
products, with about 650-mil-
lion-cubic feet of wood harvest-
ed annually.
Forests also support outdoor
recreational opportunities for
residents and millions of visitors
to the state, providing important
no market environmental servic-
es such as biodiversity, water
recharge and mitigation of glob-
al climate change by absorbing
carbon dioxide from the atmos-
phere, Hodges said.
The growth of the Florida
forestry industry mirrors that of
other states in the southeastern
United States, where forestry is
now the leading agricultural
commodity.
"The success of the industry
in Florida and the Southeast is
also driven by the fact that large
tracts of forest land are privately
owned, while forests in the


western part of the nation are
largely on public lands," Hodges
said. "In many cases, state and
federal restrictions on publicly
owned lands govern the amount
of logging that can take place,
particularly in old-growth
forests, which accounts for the
decline of the industry in the
West."
Hodges and Mulkey also esti-
mated the values of recreation
and tourism in their study on the
Florida forestry industry.
While tourism is the largest
and most well known sector of
the Florida economy, forested
landscapes provide environmen-
tal amenities that support this
industry,, particularly for the
growing eco-tourism market,.
Hodges said. Visitors spend
about $47 billion annually,
which translates into an overall
economic impact of $117 bil-
lion.
Various surveys indicate that
more than half of Florida visitors
engage in some type of nature-
based activity during their visit,
and 19 to 33 percent of all travel
and tourism in the southern
United States is linked to out-
door recreation, he said.
"Using the more conservative
19-percent figure, we estimate
that outdoor recreation in Flori-
da has a total economic impact
of at least $22.3 billion annually,
creating 332,000 jobs," Hodges
said. "And some share of this
can be attributed ,to forest
ecosystems."
He cited U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service data showing
that wildlife-related recreational
activities including hunting,
fishing and wildlife viewing-
account for total expenditures in
Florida of an estimated $6.05 bil-


lion. He said the figure includes
money spent on fuel, lodging,
and meals as well as recreation-
al equipment such as boats and
guns.
"While not all wildlife-related
recreational activity is directly
attributed to forest resources,
most of the recreation, hunting
and wildlife watching takes
place in forested ecosystems,"
he said.
In addition to these commer-
cial and recreational use values
associated with forests in Flori-
da, there is an array of no market
environmental services that are
important to recognize,
although they may be difficult to
measure, he said.
These no market environ-
mental services include: Surface
and ground water storage,
purification of air and water, mit-
igation of droughts and floods,
stabilization of climate, genera-
tion and preservation of soils,
decomposition of wastes,
cycling and movement of nutri-
ents, provision, of wildlife habitat
and maintenance of biodiversity.
Hodges said Florida forests
absorb or "sequester" about 5.8-
million tons of carbon from the
atmosphere every year, which
helps reduce the effects of glob-
al warming. Using the figure of
$5 per ton, this positive environ-
mental impact is worth about
$29 million annually, he said.

Impacts of the Forest Industry in'
Florida, 2003" (FE 538), is avail-

Who is a Faith in Action volunteer?


Faith in Action in LaBelle
Heart Beats & Hands: Who is a
volunteer? There is no age too
young or too old to be a Faith in
Action volunteer. The youngest
Faith in Action in Labelle volun-
teer is six years of age and the
oldest is 86.
Some of their volunteers are
shy, while others are very outgo-
ing. Some volunteers never
leave their home andesome trav-
el all about. The key to making a
volunteer job work for you is to
find your fit.
Each year Faith in Action in
Labelle receives requests for a.
caring individual to read to chil-
dren, rock a baby or tutor some-
one. But that's not all. Requests
for a lawn to be raked, windows
to be washed, or a friendly visit
or phone call are also very popu-
lar. Not all volunteer duties
require one-on-one contact.
Groups can also volunteer.
Faith in Action in LaBelle has
had the privilege of working
with groups such as the Boy
Scouts, Future Business Leaders
of .America, Hendry County
Sheriff's Explorers, Kiwanis
Club of Labelle, Labelle High
School Health Career Class, the
Robinettes and Southwest Flori-
da Christian Academy, to name a
few. Faith in Action doesn't stop
there.
Volunteers provide entertain-
ment by singing, dancing and:
even teaching exercise classes.

hours are utilized in many differ-
ent ways. Students can collect
hours for high school or college
requirements. Volunteers can
turn in their hours and partici-
pate in the Share program and
even bank hours, for individuals
who are not physically capable
of volunteering. Volunteers can
earn special recognition within


their civic groups, both locally
and nationally.
SWhether you enjoy volun-
teering in the limelight or behind
the scenes there is never a short-
age of opportunities. If you have
any amount of time to share
with another, please consider
volunteering with the Faith in
Action program. Faith in Action
has .now expanded its services
to eastern. Hendry Courit and

Disaster helpline hours changing


ORLANDO The operational
hours for the disaster helpline are
being changed by the Department
of Homeland Security's Federal
Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) and the state of Florida as
the number of inquires has
decreased, federal and state offi-
cials said.


Beginning April 11, the Helpline
will be open to receive phone calls
from disaster victims during the
new hours from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Monday through Friday.
The toll free helpline number is
(800) 621-3362, and for those with
hearing and speech impairments
the TTY number is (800) 462-7585.
"FEMA and the State Emer-


agency Response Team (SERT) will
continue to respond to all ques-
tions from those who suffered
damages, have registered with
FEMA for aid and now have ques-
tions regarding their applications,"
said Craig Fugate, state coordinat-
ing officer for SERT.

Lawmakers call for investigations


, WASHINGTON The IRS esti-
mates that some 50-million Ameri-
cans will scramble in the first
weeks of this month to meet the
April 15 deadline to file their tax
returns. But among those mailing
last-minute returns may be
inmates getting refunds for work
they didn't do because they're
behind bars.
Recent published accounts
found that with the help of a few
outsiders, two inmates serving
long sentences in Florida prisons
for murder filed fraudulent tax
returns and received ;refunds of
around $5,000 from the IRS for
wages they never earned.
And as it turns out their scam
isn't unique to Florida. For exam-
ple, Donald Sanders was indicted


last.year for filing a fake tax return
for himself and 65 other inmates
while serving time at the Missouri
Eastern Correctional Center in
2002. Prosecutors believe the
scheme cost taxpayers over
$73,000. And in 2003, two inmates
at the Carson City Correctional
Facility in Michigan were sentenced
to an additional 27 months in
prison when authorities discovered
their plans to file false tax returns
on behalf of fellow prisoners for
refunds totaling more than
$46,000.
According to the IRS itself,
bogus returns from prison inmates
is a growing problem. Inmates
long have been among those filing
multiple returns for illegal refunds,
IRS officials say. Though the scope
of the problem is unknown.


That's why four legislators from
Florida, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and
U.S. Reps. Jim Davis, Ric Keller and
Tom Feeney, want to put a stop to
this tax scam. They've asked the
investigative arm of Congress to
find out how widespread the prob-
lem is and to identify ways law-
makers could safeguard the system
from prisoners.who aim to cheat
the government.
"Convicts should go to prison to
pay their debts to society, not to rip
off American taxpayers," Nelson
said.
"It is outrageous that as millions
of law-abiding citizens are strug-
gling to pay their taxes, criminals in
prisons across the nation are
,already receiving thousands in IRS
refunds from fraudulent claims,"
David added'. "This scam needs to


be fully investigated immediately
so that we can put a stop to this
activity."
"We need the IRS to explain to
us in the light of day why in the
world they can't crack down on
this blatant fraud by prisoners,"
stated Keller.
"American taxpayers deserve to
know the full extent to which they
are being swindled by prison
inmates. A GAO inquiry will help
Congress gather more information
about this scheme so we can pre-
vent it from happening in the
future," said Feeney.
Nelson, Davis, Keller and
Feeney are concerned that access
to the Internet in U.S. correctional
facilities may make it easier for
inmates to file phony returns.


Families needed for student exchange


ASSE International Student
Exchange Program (ASSE) is seek-
ing local host families for boys and
girls from a variety of countries
around the world. These students
are 15-18 years of age, and are
coming to this area for the upcom-
ing high school year or semester.
These personable and academ-
ically-select exchange students

Rep. Har
WASHINGTON, DC U.S.
Rep. Katherine Harris (R-FL) has
urged Congress to permanently
free America's hard working
farmers, ranchers, small business
owners, and their families from
the specter of the death tax by
passing H.R. 8, the Death Tax
Repeal Permanency Act of 2005.
The U.S. House of Representa-
tives is slated to consider H.Ri 8
this week.
I "Benjamin Franklin said that,
'in this world nothing is certain
but death and taxes,' but I doubt
that even the inventive Mr.
Franklin imagined the taxation of
death itself," Rep. Harris said.
"Americans get taxed when they


speak English well, are bright, curi-
ous and anxious to learn about the
U.S.A. by living as part of your fami-
ly, attending high school and shar-
ing their own culture and language
with you.
The exchange students arrive
from their home country shortly
before school begins and return at
the end of the school year or


semester. .Each ASSE student is
fully insured, brings his or her own
personal spending money and
expects to bear his or her share of
household responsibilities, as well
as being included in normal family
activities and lifestyles.
The students are well screened
and qualified by ASSE. Families
'may select the youngster of their


choice from extensive student
applications, family photos and
biographical essays.
To become a host family or find
out more about ASSE and its pro-
grams, please call (800) 473-0696.
There are hundreds of students to
choose from, so call and begin the
process-of selecting your new son
or daughter today.


ris urges Congress: Move now


earn money. They get taxed again
when they spend what is left.
Unquenched, government then
pursues taxpayers beyond the
grave causing devastating con-
sequences for the grieving rela-
tives they leave behind, many of
whom must sell the family farm
or the family business just to pay
the taxes.
"Worse yet, the death tax may
cost more to collect than it gener-
ates in revenue, while it stifles the
creation of jobs 'and opportunity
by punishing thrift, deterring
investment, and diverting capital
to unproductive activities like tax
avoidance. I urge my colleagues
to join me in writing the obituary


for the death tax, so that we may
finally liberate America's families
from this useless relic." '
The Economic Growth and
Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of
2001, which provided over $1.35
trillion in tax relief for America's
workers, gradually eliminated the
death tax over 10 years, but with
one major catch in 2011, the
death tax returns in full force.
H.R. 8 removes this expiration
or "sunset" provision, perma-
nently eliminating the possibility
that like a vampire, this unfair tax
might rise from the dead to once
again suck the blood from a life-
time of hard work.
Iff 2002 and again in 2003, the


House voted to make death tax
relief perri.rinent, but the United
States Senate failed to act upon
this legislation.

Some newspapers seem to take pleasure in the bad news. Not us.

We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go wrong, and
citizens need to know about problems.)

Still, we give most of our attention to good news the kind you clip and
tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. The vast majority of
what happens in our community IS good.)

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your editor.

FIVE TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR HOME'S VALUE


Are you among the thousands
of people who are thinking about
improving their current home or
buying a "fixer-upper" home?
Before you start spending money
doing either, here are five things
you should know.
1. Lifestyle improvements to a
kitchen or bathroom always
increase the value of a home, so
they are your best investment.
Other areas to consider include
the master bedroom, media
rooms and "outdoor rooms."
2. Maintenance improvements
are necessary, but don't expect
the value of your home to go up
as a result. Exterior paint jobs may
help increase the "curb appeal" of
your home, but since mainte-
nance is a necessary part of home
ownership, don't expect a $5,000
paint job to translate into $5,000
more in home equity. But do note
that failing to maintain your prop-
erty adequately will decrease its
value by whatever it will cost to
repair the damage or implement
necessary maintenance proce-
dures. Think of home mainte-
nance improvements as a way of
protecting your home's value
from going down.
3. Cosmetic improvements neu-
trally effect a home's value. Jobs
like stripping wallpaper or paint-
ing are cosmetic improvements
that most homeowners can do
themselves, making the percep-
tion of their value seem less.
Therefore, it makes more sense
to do most cosmetic work your-
self instead of paying someone
else to do it.
4. Be aware of over-improving
your home, especially if you plan
to sell it within 2 to 5 years.
Before you commit to a big proj-
ect, such as installing a three-car
garage or an in-ground pool,
check to see if it's out of character
for your neighborhood. If your
house is improved way beyond
others in the neighborhood, you
may have inadvertently placed it
on the "odd" list, making it highly

unlikely to increase its market
value when it comes time to sell.
5. Keep up with home values in
your neighborhood. Realtors use
home sales information on com-
parable sales (comps) to put a
value on a home. The best way to
assess the value of yours is to look
at home sales of properties that
are similar to yours in your area.
For example, if you know that 15
Hedge Lane is comparable to
yours and it sold for $325,000
with a new kitchen, you can get
an idea of what the value of your
home would be with, a new
kitchen. Comps give you the
most accurate picture of what
your home is worth.
