By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
SOUTH BAY South Bay
city officials are excited at the
prospect of New Hope Chari-
ties, a non-profit organization
that operates out of Pahokee,
locating a site in South Bay.
A staple for residents in the
community of Pahokee and sur-
rounding areas, the organiza-
tion offers an increasing num-
ber of services to families.
One of them, the after-


school program, will be the first
service the organization plans
to implement in South Bay, set
to target the ages of 10 to 17.
With the operation firmly in
place, the next step will be to
find a suitable location for the
construction of a building that
will, eventually, offer more serv-
ices and activities.
South Bay Commissioner
Shirley Walker-Turner, who is
working closely with the organi-
zation, said the city met with


officials with New Hope early
last week, along with the mayor
of South Bay and the city man-
ager. The conversation quickly
shifted to New Hope's desire to
have a presence in South Bay.
The idea of the after-school
program seemed the first logical
step, with New Hope proposing
a three-hour program each day
that will engage children in edu-
cational, as well as recreational
activities. Children will receive
homework assistance and tuto-

GSG to manage South Bay utilities?


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
SOUTH BAY While South
Bay awaits the final decision on
the wastewater interconnect,
allowing it to make use of Belle
Glade's wastewater system in
place of the aging plant, the city
is addressing long-term goals
to stabilize its utility system.
A part of that focuses on
transferring the management
of the water and wastewater
systems to Government Ser-
vices Group, a management.
company that specializes in the
field.
The plan, according to City
Manager Tony Smith, is to tap
into the company's in-depth
background in the market, pro-
viding the city with an expertise
that it currently does not have
in managing the two systems.
With regulatory agencies
breathing down thie necks of
city administrators over viola-
tions with the utility systems,
the transfer of management
would.cut down on such sanc-
tions, explained Mr. Smith.
"During the past several
years, the city has experienced
many challenges with the
water and wastewater func-
tions and operations," City
Manager Smith writes in a letter
to the commission, dated May
3. "The DEP (Department of
Environmental Protection) and
county health department had
lodged an inordinate number
of consent orders for lack of
attention to administrative and
maintenance oversight at both


the water and wastewater
plants."
A result from the sanctions
saw the city moving on several
aspects concerning its opera-
tion and resulted in the "avoid-
ance of thousands of dollars in
fines from DEP and the health
department," according to Mr.
Smith. DEP had prepared to
suspend all wastewater func-
tions in 2004 by final order and
legal action to appoint a private
entity to manage the opera-
tions, but the city complied, he
said.
In November of 2004, the
city secured a professional rate
study that formed the basis for
increasing the water and sewer
rates to address the financial
following the opinion of the
Chief Inspector General that
ignoring such rate increases
would worsen the city's cur-
rent deficit.
Another of the stipulations
that kept auditors and regulato-
ry agencies from corning down
on the city was the concept of
retaining a professional man-
agement firm to oversee the
utility systems.
"The professional services
management team will assume
administrative and operational
responsibilities that don't cur-
rently exist at either the water
or wastewater plant,"
explained Mr. Smith.
The idea was put forth to
commissioners at the May 3
regular city meeting, but was
tabled following comments


from commissioners question-,
ing the idea. To run until Sept.
30, 2007, the $90,000 yearly
contract with the company was
briefly analyzed by commis-
sioners who argued that the
city would be better off focus-
ing on repairing the plants,
rather than hiring a firm to
manage them.
With the city looking to
hand over the processing of its
wastewater to Belle Glade's
system, Commissioner John
Wilson asked, "What is the
purpose of hiring someone to
manage what's broken? All
he's [management company]
going to do is tell you, 'This
needs to be replaced.'"
Mayor Clarence Anthony felt
differently. "What this compa-
ny will do is bring that level of
expertise so we won't be cited
anymore," he said.
"If you want to take water
and wastewater to the next
level, this is what you need to
do," said Mr. Smith. in
response. Following the old
way and "business as usual,"
Mr. Smith said,, "I suspect we'll
receive more citing."
Commissioner Shirley Walk-
er-Turner, though receptive to
avenues to stabilize the city's
utility systems, asked for legal
review of the agreement.
Commissioner Wilson
asked that the issue be tabled
for "clarification."
The issue will be brought
back at a future meeting.


rial services. The plan is to pick
kids up at school, take them to
the program and then drop
each child at their homes.
The two entities have com-
mitted to making use of the Tan-
ner Park building in South Bay
for the program, at least for the
time being. Guillermo Rivera,
with New Hope, hopes to have
the program operating this fall.
In the meantime, both
organizations will continue
working-together to find a loca-

BELLE GLADE The city of
Belle Glade will vote on helping,
its sister city, the city of South
Bay, find relief in connecting to
Belle Glade's wastewater treat-
ment plant.
South Bay, which has come
under fire in the past by regulato-
ry agencies for its aging waste-
water treatment plant, has asked
Belle Glade to do what it can in
allowing it to construct an inter-
connect that will give South Bay
the use of its neighboring city's
plant in processing the waste-
water.

SOUTH BAY Most of the
interviews have been carried
through, and sources indicate
that the commission is ready to
appoint a new'chief of police
before the weekend.
As of press time, the city had
a tentative interview date set for
today, at 7 p.m., to interview
the final of the four candidates,
Acting Chief Michael Morris.
A decision on the appoint-
ment is expected following the
.interview.
The final selection will be
succeeding former Police Chief
Albert Dowdell, whose resigna-

tion somewhere in South Bay to
house a permanent site that will
be operated and staffed by New

According to Mr. Rivera, the
goal is to have the new site con-
structed and operational within
one year. New Hope staff are
busy looking to secure funding
for the proposal, and will be
looking closely at the possibility

South Bay city officials have
said that the deteriorating plant
is past the point of being
patched up and are looking for a
temporary solution while
addressing the future needs of
that plant.
Having been brought to the
table before, the issue was once
again raised in a letter from
South Bay City Manager Tony
Smith and Mayor Clarence
Anthony to Belle Glade City

The commission decided to
set a final meeting date to inter-
view Chief Morris, who
because of an emergency was
unable to make it to that May 3
meeting.
City staff sorted through the
list-of applicants for the job,
narrowing it down to the final
four at the direction of the city
commission.
Those interviewed spoke on
the importance of community

well as finding funding sources

Perfumes linked to health problems


For years one of my friends
complained about adverse reac-
tions to perfumes due to chemical
sensitivities. While I sympathized,
I couldn't really understand what
she was going though until last
week when a blast of "body
spray" wafted toward me. My
throat closed up; I was having
trouble breathing; my eyes
watered; I became nauseated.
What was going on?
A little online research
revealed that I am not alone. More
and more people are having bad
reactions to perfumed products
such as body sprays, perfumes,
deodorants, carpet cleaners and
air fresheners.
There are several reasons for
the increase in bad reactions. One
is simply that there are more
scented products on the market.
Body sprays are being marketed
to both men and women. And the
companies that make these prod-
ucts are targeting younger con-
sumers, who prefer stronger
scents. Younger consumers may
also be a little more liberal with
applying the sprays. All of this


A
Healthier
Life .


with Katrina Elsken

means there are more perfumed
products in the market place and
in the air.
Another potential health haz-
ard is the ingredients in the per-
fumes. Traditionally, perfumes
were made from natural sub-
stances, and only a tiny percent-
age of the population is allergic to
nature's perfumes like citrus or
rose oil.
Today more and more scented
products are synthetic made
from things like petroleum prod-
ucts. Some of the ingredients
used are indeed toxic and
depending on your level of sensi-
tivity, can cause physical discom-
fort.


Research also shows that
chemical sensitivity can develop
over time, after repeated expo-
sure to a toxin. You might not
have symptoms the first few times
you are exposed, but develop
them after repeated exposure.
According to a study conduct-
ed in the 1990s by the Environ-
mental Protection Agency, the
percentage of the population suf-
fering from adverse reaction to
perfumed products is increasing.
They attribute this in part to the
increase in scented products.
Another problem might be the
combination of the toxins in the
perfumes with -other toxins
already in the environment, such
as cigarette smoke.
What can you do about the sit-
uation?
Be considerate: If you work
in an office with many workers
sharing the same open space,
don't wear perfumes or body
sprays.
Use moderation. If you wear
perfumes or body sprays, use just
a small amount.
Complain: If you have a bad


reaction to a perfume or scented
product, report it to.the Food and
Drug Administration. If the FDA
receives enough complaints
about a product, they will investi-
gate the problem. To report an
adverse reaction to the FDA, call
FDA's Office .of Cosmetics and
Colors at 1-202-401-9725, or file
online. You may also send your
report in writing to: FDA, Office of
Cosmetics and Colors (HFS-100),
200 C St., SW, Washington, DC
20204.
Ask for compassion: Some
chemically-sensitive people can't
, attend church services due to the
perfume worn by others there. To
help, pastors may ask their con-
gregation to forego perfume on
the days they attend church serv-
ices.
Avoid known problem
areas: If you have a bad reaction
to perfumes, stay out of perfume
departments in stores and let
store managers know that you
will not shop at their store if they
post "perfume sample" sprays in
other areas of the store.

Our Mother
You've been the greatest bless-
ing in our life, it's clear to see
words could never express, how
dear you were to us.
We owe you more than
money could buy for all. You've
been and become. To'ejpd5 you
for your strength and love could
simply never be done.


Mary Katheryn Kennedy Jones


Your faith, hope and love are
thing that I treasure. But I truly
appreciate the love you gave us
without measure.
Our hearts are full of pride for
all that you've been. We're glad
that you were and still is our
mother, "We're glad you were
our friend!"
We will forever keep you in
our hearts, Love You Always,
Pauline, Earnestine, Thadene,
Shirley and Shep Harris. ,

My mom can turn the sim-
plest things into special memo-
ry. When she bought a cup
shaped like an elephant with a
trunk for a spout from which to
drink, all four of us children
wanted to drink 'out of it. We
argued over who would get to
use it so much that Mom said we
could only use it on our birthday.


S every birthday I remember get-
ting the treat of being able to
drink from the elephant cup. A
small thing but it was special to
all of us.
Now at 85 years, my mom
continues to bring special mem-
ories into our lives and is a bless-
ing to her family.
We love you Mom (Nannie),
Your children, your grandchil-
dren, and your great grandchil-
dren.

4 OPINION Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


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.

You don't speak for me
It becomes more evident each week that most of the negative
Speak Out items about Pahokee and Mayor Sasser are being sup-
plied by one or two miserable people. These individuals do not
speak for all of us.
Personal agenda
This is in regards to the letter to the editor called, "No prob-
lems with my critics" I found a lot of interesting, points in Rev-
erend Hudspeth's letter to the community. I don't think anyone's
denying the fact that she's done a lot for the community, howev-
er, I just don't think politics and religion mix. I think she has a
personal agenda. I think that's a slanted view on how the city is
run.

He doesn't stand alone
I'm calling in regards to the "Bring Duran back as mayor." I
don't think Mayor Sasser ever got involved with city politics as far
as the police department goes. That is run by the police chief
who answers to Lily Latimore. However, there are five commis-
sioners called the commission. Mr. Sasser doesn't stand alone in
making rules for the police department and I can ensure you that
Mr. Sasser is not one to stand in the way of law enforcement
because I've been to the meetings and I've heard him say count-
less times, "will you please do something to take care of the
criminals in the community." I also have to laugh at the "Same
hand in the cookie jar." I don't think Mr. Sasser needs to put his
hand in the cookie jar. From what I understand, his family owns
the cookie jar.
So immature
Can anybody write a letter to the editor, or say something in
Speak Out that's intelligent and more mature. Why don't you
read what the paper had to say last week about the marina being
revitalized with an $8-million grant. Let's talk about something
positive. Are we going to go over this situation in Pahokee over
and over and over and over. It's really getting ridiculous. I'm real-
ly disappointed in the Sun newspaper for continuing to print this
stuff. It's just garbage and I would advise everyone to stop read-
ing it, if they continue.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling (and reading). While we
don't disagree that some points are over stated, it is not for us to
decide which reader's point is more justified or more valid or
more important than the next. We simply provide a forum for
our readers to express their opinions.


Pet corner

Q: Dear Doc Savvy. How do you
feel about de-clawing cats? And at
what age is it the best time for this
surgery? Thanks Doc. Rosemary in
Belle Glade.
A: Hey there Rosemary. Hmm,
how do I feel about de-clawing
cats? Well, I would really prefer to
not do it! However, that isn't entire-
ly realistic. I would prefer to de-
claw a cat, rather than see it get
kicked out of the house,for scratch-
ing lhr- n(-t furniture
And, the very best time to do
this surgery is at the same time as
spaying or neutering. Ideally, any-
time from three to six months of
age. This way, they are small and
recover much easier. Also you save
money, as it is two procedures with
one anesthesia.
Great question Rosemary! Take
care, Doc Savvy.

Q: Dear Doc Savvy. My son
Angel came home with a new
puppy last week. We took him to
the veterinarian because he started
to loose hair. We found out he has
mange that he was born with, and
will need to have a special dip put
on him once a week for a long
time. Is there something we could
have done differently? And, will it
come back again?
Thank you. Maria, in -Lake
Worth.
A: Hello Maria. It sounds like
both you and your son are very car-
ing for taking in this puppy. Unfor-
tunately there was nothing you
could have done to prevent this.
This type of mange is called


~ft


Doc Savvy

Demodex, and it is hereditary. If the
mother dog has it, then she should
not breed because the puppies will
have it too. Usually a pup breaks
with it for the first time during a
period of stress like in this case,
going to a new home. The diagno-
sis is with a skin scraping and
microscopic diagnosis. Treatment
can range from a topical cream to
bathing, dipping and oral medica-
tions. In most cases Maria, it does
get better. Also it can come back
later in life, and the treatments will
have to be repeated. Have a con-
versation with your veterinarian
about cost, treatments, and recur-
rence so you will know what to
expect.
Good Luck Maria. Doc Savvy.

Letter to the Editor


School volunteers
are priceless
Dear Editor:
As a volunteer in Palm Beach
County School District, each volun-
teer must register with our com-
.puterized tracking system. This
process will initially take 3-5 min-
utes. The first time someone
comes in to volunteer at a school
site, they will need to input their
name, social security number and
other pertinent information into
the computer, then wait 3-7 days
for a FDLE background check. This
is standard policy for a volunteer in
our school system.
We want to stress that the pro-
tection of each and every student is
the utmost importance. Also, it
allows us to have a record of each
and every person on campus, in
case of an accident. If a volunteer is
hurt while volunteering, then that
person is covered under workers'
compensation. If that person has
never registered, then they would
not be covered if an accident
occurred.
After registering, the volunteer
needs to sign in to record the time
she/he volunteers on campus. This
will enable the person arid the
school to get credit for the volun-
teer hours. The process requires
the volunteer to input their social
security number as their identifica-
tion, but the social security number
is encrypted, so no one else can
see it.
The number shows up as a
series of asterisks *** **'****, on
the screen. Then the volunteer
goes on about her day. At the end
of the day, the volunteer will go to
any computer at the school site
and sign out, this will require her or
him to go through a series of win-
dows breaking down where that
volunteer was during the day and
how much time was spent volun-
teering. The process is very quick
and simple, and necessary.
Last year, Palm Beach County
School District logged almost $30
million in volunteer time, saving
that much in personnel. Volunteers
are priceless in our District they
are valued and needed; This year,
because of the back-to-back hurri-
canes, we lost volunteers and the
numbers were cut almost in half.
Please remember that the stu-
dents need your talents, but mostly
they need your time. There are a
variety of duties available at every
school, see the volunteer coordina-
tor at each school site or contact


Kay Zaccagnino at 924-6516 for
more information. The students of
Palm Beach County count on you!
Sincerely,
KayZaccagnino
West Area Volunteer and Busi-
ness Partnership Coordinator

Used to be proud
Dear editor:
I have to say that it takes a lot to
get me to write in to the local
paper, but I just finished reading an
article in the New Times. That's an
alternative publication that is pub-
lished in Fort Lauderdale. There
was a huge interview from Robert
Love, J. P. Sasser and several others
from Pahokee. After reading said
article,. I had to write this letter.
Pahokee has suffered through sev-
eral scandals, but never any quite
as monstrous as this one. People
want this to quiet down. I don't
think any of you realize just as big
this is. On the coast, we're seen as
a bunch of country bumpkins.
They think we're lawless, foolish,
backwards and idiotic. They laugh
at us! We are Palm Beach County's
biggestJOKE!
As for the park situation, look
around any city in any county in
any state. How many parks do you
see that are named after convicted
felons? I can tell you, I've already
done the research. ZERO! Water
Parks are usually not named after
people, but places or things. If the
people in Pahokee don't speak up,
then the city manager and the
mayor will have their way and
name it whatever they want. Per-
sonally, I think the Grassy Waters
Youth Park has a nice ring to it. I
don't think Loula V. York Library
should be changed. Mr. Singletary
was very active in politics name
the city hall after him. That's very
appropriate, I think. Better yet, he
was an advocate for young people,
name the recreation center after
him. It would be a great honor for a
great man who did great things for
our community. I commend Mr.
Love for turning his life around
after prison, that's what prison is
supposed to do. He is a success
story for the prison system. At least.
our hard-earned tax dollars were
spent for a good purpose.
We need so much. Our com-
munity has so many challenges
before it, that all this divisiveness
only adds to the challenges. Why
can't you see that? Every time there
is a new article, it's like building
another wall to add to the wall of.
scandals. Higher and higher, the


wall gets until we can no longer
climb it. The young people are
already having a difficult time get-
ting over the wall. They're seeking
alternative methods, gangs, drugs,
violence. Why are we adding more
bricks for them to overcome? Our
job as adults is to make that path
easier for them, not more challeng-
ing. I just don't understand why in
the world we can't work with each
other. Why is it easier to work
against each other?
Lately, I'm ashamed to say I'm
from Pahokee. I used to be proud
that I was from such a close-knit,
loving community, but these days
we are so divided and hateful, I
barely recognize my hometown.
Why is that? Why have we all
become so full of hate and rage for
one another? People who have
been friends for years are turning
against each other! Politics has
become personal. You all have
agendas these days, when once it
was all for one and one for all.
What has happened to you all? Has
your judgment become clouded by
greed? Our city is too small to
divide and conquer, folks. We ALL
need to work together to make
Pahokee work. This is a COMMU-
NITY, not a metropolis. Get over
yourselves and let's get back to
business of putting our town back
together! Check your egos at the
door. The last time I checked, there
wasn't a single Donald Trump
among us. So sit down, shut up
and let's restore our city into some-
thing all of us can be proud of,
black, white, brown. ALL OF US! I
want to love Pahokee again. Oh,
and one more thing, remember
elected officials, those of us who
voted you into office -we the peo-
ple elected you because we
believed in you. You promised us a
better Pahokee, you're doing a fair
job, but you're also delivering a,
scandalous Pahokee. Fix It!
Thanks!
Sincerely,
KayZaccagnino

We're not that dumb
This small community, once a
thriving hub of agricultural com-
merce, has once again been
embarrassed by the very people
we accidentally elected because
we believed their campaign lies
(promises). It is unimaginable to
most of us that we could have been
so very wrong about our electoral
choices.
Pahokee deserves better. The
hard-working people of Pahokee


deserve better.
Our latest "laughing stock"
event was reported in The Post on.
Friday of last week. It seems that
since there was such a controversy
over naming a youth park after a
local felon, our city manager and
mayor decided to compromise by'
naming it after a whole GROUP of
felons. 'Mr. Sasser, have you no
shame? You seem to enjoy just rub-
bing our faces in the crap over and
over again just like a scorned child
sticks his tongue out at his tormen-
tors. The actions of you and your
"back-pocket" commissioners and
that city manager, as well as your
wealthy "benefactor and boss", are
so like you childish.
Wake up mayor, you are not a
czar or king- you are merely a
man who seems intent on keeping
Pahokee in the "bad news lime-
light" so that property values will
stay the same or better yet, fall
thereby giving you and your friends
from "down south" (where our
city manager came from by the
way) the opportunity to buy Paho-
kee upin a seller's market.
I can only speak for myself, but
so many more of my fellow citi-
zens feel the same way I do about
your lies and empty promises. But
most of all, we are enraged that
you have the nerve to even suggest
that we name a new park after a
felon who has been on your "pay-
roll" for years. You must forget that
those of us on the Planning and
Zoning Board saw the plans for the
water park even before Mr. Love
supposedly took an interest in it. It
is also a shame that our city man-
ager has chosen to circumvent this
Board for her own agenda, which,
after all is yours as well.
We know that Mr. Love is active
in the community. We also know
that he has "dogged" our police:
force for years. It is very apparent
that he is being civicallyy:
enhanced" by you, City Hall, and-
the Executive Secretary of our
Chamber of Commerce. You
should also know that I heard the
whole story of Mr. Love's "beating
episode" the Monday after the'
event while in a meeting at the
Chamber., Needless to say, the
story he told that night was a differ-'
ent one than he gave to The Post.
I, for one, Mr. mayor, am fed up
with your "agenda" and I truly'
believe that Pahokee deservestbet-
ter than you and Ms. Latimore. The
people of Pahokee are not as"
dumb as you say.

Q: Why do you do what you
do?
A: After I became a Christian 19
years ago, it seemed to motivate
me more. I want to do more for
people. As I look around and see
so many young people, and espe-
cially Blacks, they've just got to the
point where they're lazy and they
don't want to work. That kind of
pushes me. I can tell them, it's not
right to stand on the corner and do
those things. You could work and
make a decent living and stay out
of jail.

Q: Can you describe yourself?
A: Nathaniel Webb is a person
who has lived here and wanted to
do something about his life. As a
young person, I went into the
world and kind of messed my life
up. I just wanted to change my
way of living. After I got into the
world and started drinking, I want-
ed to give 'that up. I've stopped
drinking now for almost 20 years.
God has been real good to me. I'm
a social minister in the First Born
Church of the Living God in Belle
Glade. I'm a good church worker.
Plus the fact that I'm on the board
for feeding the homeless. We have
a food outreach ministry and I'm
over the food outreach ministry in
Belle Glade.

Q: What scares you?
A: I'm so fearful right now -
we're losing so many young peo-
ple. We're losing them every day.
And it hurts. When you look
around on TV, even in this area,
things that are happening, you
have drive-by shootings in our
local area. Every time you drive by
Fifth and Sixth Street, you see so
many young people out there; not
only boys, but you see girls that are
really messing their lives up. That


"We're losing so many young people.
We're losing them every day. And it
hurts."
Nathaniel Webb


hurts me. It's scary, think about
what it's going to come to in the
next 10 years, it's going to be even
worse. Some of them are out of
work, I wouldn't say that they're
just lazy, some of them really can't
get jobs in this area and they can't
afford to those areas to get jobs.
I'm fearful of what's going to hap-
pen. We have a lot of nice neigh-
borhoods in Belle Glade, but
they're getting worse.

Q: What is your favorite song?
A: I have one song that I like:
I'm Just a Nobody Trying to Tell
Everybody About Somebody, That
Could Save Anybody's Soul. That's
the song that kind of brought me
over. Although I know now that
I'm not a nobody, I'm somebody,
but that song just brought me into
reality who I really am. I was saved
before that song, but that song
kind of relates to me. When God
called me into the ministry, I said,
"I'm not able to do that, because
I'm just nothing. I'm just nobody.
Nobody don't want to listen to me.
I'm a poor guy, don't have any-
thing." But God has been good to
me. He allowed me to go ahead
and do it anyway.
I've been blessed,' I have a
home in Belle Glade, which got
burned down a few months ago.
(Q: What happened?) It was a
grease fire at home, my wife was
cooking. They're doing construc-
tion on it now. No one was hurt. I
was blessed.

Q: What irks you?
A: I can't stand to see how the
youth and the drugs and the area
and so many kids talking back to
the parents. They're buying drugs.
I've been out there but I've never
been a real drug user. I was into
alcohol, but it hurts me. How they
can pull in the front of you and run
to the cars and sell the drugs. I see
it everyday now. I think a lot of
times, people come under pres-
sure, some start out doing it for
finance, trying to make money to
provide. They get into it them-
selves and they begin to be users
of it and it hurts them. A lot of
times it comes from not having the
right home training. You got par-
ents that own drugs and that leads


to you being a drug user a lot of
times. Most of the times that's
what's happening in our neighbor-
hoods. The role models are the
ones in the jacked-up cars and
young guys want to be like them
instead of want to be like the
preacher, or the doctor or the
lawyer.

Q: What memory do you hold
dear?
A: One thing I won't forget is
me and my grandmother, this was
in 1963 or 64, when they had
changed the civil rights act where
the Blacks could come sit to the
front of the bus. I think it was 64 or


somewhere in that neighborhood.
Me and my grandmama were
going to Cordele, Georgia. I told
her, "Grandmama, you don't have-
to sit back there no more." She
said, "You don't tell me where to
sit, I don't want to sit way up,
there." I was saying, "I wonder
why she don't want to sit up here.'
They say we can sit up here now."
That stayed with me the rest of my,
life.
(Q: Why do you think she didn
t want to sit in the front?) I don
t really know. She later told me, "If.
they have a wreck, they hit the.
front of the bus. If they have it in'
the back, I don't want to sit way in
the back and I ain't going to sit in
the front." I think she still had that'
stereotype mind that she wasn't'
supposed to sit in the front. She.
was an older lady, and that she
wasn't supposed to sit there. She
just didn't want to share it with me.
That made me want to live life a
little differently.

Crist hails unanimous

passage of Anti-Looting Bill


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist hailed the
Legislature's unanimous passage
of an anti-looting bill proposed by
the Attorney General to protect
homeowners and businesses in
areas ravaged by hurricanes and
other disasters. The bill, spon-
sored by Senator Dave Aroriberg
and Representative Holly Benson,
was passed by the Senate 40-0 fol-
lowing the 111-0 approval in the
House.
If approved by Governor Bush,
the bill will increase penalties -for
looting during any state of emer-
gency declared by the Governor.
"This legislation sends a strong
message to those low enough to
steal from disaster victims," said
Crist. "Senator Aronberg and Rep-
resentative Benson deserve great
credit for leading this good bill
through the legislative process.
There is only so much we can do
to control nature's ability to create
victims, but this new law shows
that much can be done to stop
criminals from re-victimizing vul-
nerable citizens."
The legislation, which. was
adopted as House Bill 207, was
prompted by Florida's record-set-
ting 2004 hurricane season. It will
increase penalties for certain
offenses committed 'during a
declared emergency by reclassify-
ing the degree of offenses, so that
a burglary that might otherwise
be classified as a second-degree


felony would instead become a
first-degree felony with a maxi-
mum penalty of 30 years in
prison.
"Theft is bad enough already,
but theft during a time of emer-
gency is even worse. Taking
advantage of people who are at
their most vulnerable such as
in the aftermath of one or more
hurricanes, is a particularly despi-
cable crime that merits this
tougher penalty," Senator Aron-
berg said.
"In the aftermath of the devas-
tating hurricanes of 2004, homes
and businesses across the state
were.left vulnerable to intruders
and countless reports of looting,"
said Representative Benson. "In
an effort to deter such criminal
acts, HB 207 tightens criminal
penalties against looting during
declared emergencies."
The anti-looting bill is a com-
ponent of Crist's two-part legisla-
tive proposal to address situations
that arise during a declared state
of emergency. The other meas-
ure, dealing with price gouging,
would prohibit the sale of goods
or services during an emergency
by anyone who does not have a
valid occupational license, mak-
ing a violation a second-degree
misdemeanor. That bill was
approved unanimously by the
Senate April 21, and a companion
measure has cleared all four of its
House committees without a dis-
senting vote.

Faith in Action: Heart Beats and Hands


How does FAITH IN ACTION
make a difference in your commu-
nity? One way is by providing vol-
unteer services that would normal-
ly cost the community over
$82,000 a year. It is estimated that
the national value of services pro-
vided byvolunteers is $17 per hour.
Some volunteer services, however,
create more long-term caring
friendships that are truly priceless.
The generosity of the communi-
ty doesn't always come in the form,
of hands-on volunteer care-giving'
duties. Sometimes a business or
businesses pitch in and do what
others simply do not have the
expertise to do. The following is a
true FAITH IN ACTION story from
our own community.
Ms. E. was referred to FAITH IN
ACTION for anr assistance the pro-
gram could provide.. She,had.been
recently widowed, was behind on
her bills, unable to afford her daily
medications, and to make matters
worse, the brakes had gone out on
her vehicle, leaving her without
transportation. She received no


public assistance and had a stroke
early in life, which resulted in her
right side being partially paralyzed.
FAITH IN ACTION made refer-
rals to other local agencies to begin
the process of help for Ms. E. for
grief counseling, medication assis-
tance and credit counseling to
assist her with budgeting. The one
challenge left was her vehicle.
With no extra finances the car
would have to stay parked, and Ms.
E. would have to rely on whomev-
er she could for doctor visits, gro-
cery shopping and other necessary
trips.
The staff at FAITH IN ACTION
began making phone calls to local
businesses to get the brakes
repaired on the vehicle. Three dedi-
cated business owners, who wish
to.remain anonymous, stepped up
to help. One donated the time and.
expense of towing her vehicle to
the garage. The garage owner then,
donated mechanics' time to repair
the brakes with materials donated
by still another business. Within
two days her vehicle was running,


and Ms. E. had very gratefully
regained some measure of inde-
pendence. Every act of human
kindness can make a difference in
another person's life, as was
shown in this true example. Heart-
felt thanks go out to these everyday
heroes who define the term, "Faith
in Action."
If you know of someone who
may need assistance or would like
to become a FAITH IN ACTION vol-
unteer please call Barbara Marshall
at (863) 675-1446 or Liz Taylor at
(863) 983-7088. FAITH IN ACTION
is a Senior Connections of South-
west Florida program with funding
from the United Way of Hendry &
Glades Counties and the Robert
Wood Johnson Foundation. Senior
Connections of Southwest Florida,
Inc., a United Way partner agency,
receives state and federal grants
through the Area Agency on Aging
for SW FL, Dept. of Elder Affairs,
and donations from individuals
and groups in order to assist the
elderly in our rural communities
maintain a better quality of life.

Thursday, May 12,2005 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


Other Hendry family helped area grow


As told to

MaryAnn Morris
By Judge William Hendry
OKEECHOBEE The Hendry
*family made its way east from
Arcadia to Okeechobee to become
'part of the history of Okeechobee
,County. Judge William Hendry,
retired chief judge of the Nine-
,teenth Judicial circuit, now a senior
;judge for the Circuit remembers:
"James J. (Jack) Hendry, my
,grandfather, came east from Arca-
'dia sometime in the early 1900s. He
was born Joshua Creek, later the
'family, moved to Venus. They
,always had a cattle ranch where
.they lived. Here in Okeechobee
'County, too. We're not the Hendry
,County Hendrys. No relation at all.
"Eventually, my grandfather had
.a fishing business in Lakeport. That
'was 1912.
"My dad, William J. Hendry,
:served in World War I, when he
;came home on leave it was to
Lakeport. My dad and his brothers
,worked in my grandfather's fishing
'business. My grandfather had the
fishing boat and crew and his boys
*worked for him. He also had 40
.acres on Fisheating Creek.
"My dad really had three jobs.
All he did was work. He owned a
camp in Buckhead Ridge in the
1930s and 40s called Keego Sports
Fishing Camp. It was right across
,'SR 70 from where the Buckhead
JRidge Fire Station is now. My Uncle
,Cab (Calvin Hendry) managed it,
'for my dad. My dad's other broth-
'ers, Russell and Albert, worked the
cattle and fish business with my
.dad. My dad would work the fish
,business during the week and cat-
tle on the weekends.
"My dad bought a house in
'Okeechobee in 1923 off South Par-
*rot near where Skip's Barbeque is
-now and had his fish business next
;door. I went through school here in
'Okeechobee. Few roads, even in
,downtown were paved when we
vere growing up. Even close to the
courthouse, not all the roads in


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history,






town were paved. We went to
school in the building where the
Freshman Campus is now.
"In grade school no one really
wore shoes back then. In high
school you did, but not grade
school. Growing up we made our
own fun. We had chores to do. I
worked in my dad's fish business,
which was here in town off South
Parrott by then. But Saturday or
Sunday afternoons, someone
would show up over in the park
(Flagler Park) and it didn't take too
long to get a game going. There.,
were several grocery stores in
town when I was growing up:
Wise's on South Park, McCarthy's
on North Park and Raulerson's at
the corner of South Park and Har-
graves' in East Okeechobee.
"After high school and the mili-
tary, I went on to college to the Uni-
versity of Florida in Gainesville and
earned a degree in agriculture.
Later, I went to law school there. I
remember the road from the cam-
pus into downtown Gainesville
was a two-lane dirt road with big
live oak trees arching over it com-
pletely. I've been back since, but I
don't recognize anything, so much
has changed.
"I grew up in Okeechobee. The
house I grew up in was built in
1924. It sat about a block from the
courthouse near the old jail. My
mother's father was contractor on
the building of the old courthouse.
Thatwas 1926 to 1927.
"My dad served in the State Leg-
islature from 1941 to 1951. He had
a nickname, too. He stood 6 foot 5
inches tall and the Seminoles
called him "Big Boy" and it stuck."

Mother's Day letters


Editor's note: The following
are letters written by Pahokee
students to their mothers for
Mother's Day.

Happy

Mother's Day

For my mother,
Dear Mom,r
I want to thank you for giving
me my life that I have and the
manners I have. I also want to
thank the way you treat me with
respect and how you always give
me advice to do things and to
make me proud the best way you
could although we aren't that
happy on the things that we want.
Thank you Mom for the way I
am and the manners that you
gave me.
Your son,
Hugo Martinez

For my mother,
Natalie Jackson
The Hardest Times
Mom, I'm not your only child,
I try hard to make you smile.
But things may not be real,
That's why I'm expressing
how I feel.
The things we do are because
ofyou,
That's why today is the day to
say
I love you.
This isn't the end,
Some time you may need a
friend.
Your son,
Curtis Simpson

For my mother,
Lateasa Lewis
Mother's Day!
Mom, if I don't do anything
else for you, I just want you to
remember this. I just love you so
much that I hesitate to tell you
because I'm a teenager.
I will admit sometimes I get
really upset at you and sometimes
just don't get you, but underneath
I will always love my mom.
Happy Mother's Day!
#1 Mom!
I love you, Mom!
Terrica Martin

For my mother,
Shirley J.Angram ni
Dear Mama, .,. .
I really don't have much to say,
but I really appreciate you for


being my mother for 14 years/15
years. If it wasn't for you I would-
n't be here and for the greatness
of you. People say I wouldn't
make it, they said I wouldn't be
here today. They 'said I wouldn't
abound to do anything. But I'm
glad to say that I am on my way.
Here's a poem for you called
"To Be of You"
The mother I love the best
Jumps into work head first
Without dallying in the shal-
lows
And swim off with sure
strokes, almost out of sight.
She seems to become native of
that element,
The black, sleek heads of seals
Bouncing like half-submerged
balls.
From: AlcatrinaAngram

For my mother, Betty
Scurry Broonins
Dear Mom,
You have helped me through
all of the calamities in .my life;
always there assisting me. All the
torment and pain you endured for
me and never gave up. The way
you would listen to me always
made me feel better.
Happy Mother's Day,
Jacoby Greene

For my mother,
Ethell Ebanks
Hey, Mother I love you so
much you make me cry.
I know you do everything for
us, Mom. Look at me now.
The nice clothes we have on
and the brand new shoes because
you do those nails.
Every time you are down, I'll
be there to cheer you up. If you
only knew how much I love you,
Mom. So I'll tell you now.
I love you, Mom and Happy
Mother's Day forever and ever!
Earlkevious Ebanks

For my mother,
Marth McCledon
Dear Mom,
Mother's Day is a special day
and a tremendous day to cele-
brate. A day when no one should
have hate, but a day you fill your
mother with pride and faith: A day
you show your mother who you
truly love.
You should give her kisses and
hugs.
I'm glad that you're my moth-
er, because whatever happens,
you don't give up in the struggle.


When I go to college, it's going
to be very far, but I want to let you
know, you are my star.
Your son,
Artis Evans, Jr.

For my mother,
Natalie Nava,
Happy Mother's Day Mom!
That's all I can give you for Moth-
er's Day. I'm only 14 years old. I
wish I were 16 years old so I can
get a job and show you how
much I love you by buying you a
gift. But, since I don't have a job,
all I can do is write you a letter.
Dear Mom,
Thanks for all the nights that
yod didn't sleep when I was a
baby. Thanks for working
overnights to get what I needed.
There's no way I can pay you
back, but I'll always thank you for
all the love you gave me. The only
way I can pay you back in return
is to give you my love.
Happy Mother's Day, Mom.
Love you!
Claudia

For my mother,
Tawanna Campbell
I'm just writing you this letter,
not only to let you know I love
you, but also to give thanks to you
for all of the things you have been
through with my sisters and me.
Also, I love you very much and
would love to see you happy on
this very special day. This day to
me, and I'm sure to my sisters
was made only for you. I want to
make this day a day you'll never
forget. All of the things you've put
in and given to me and done for
me; I really can't forget and I real-
ly enjoyed every moment of it.
This is just a little something I
thought would cheer you up from
the hard times we're had.
From this day forward you
should always feel as if every day
is Mother's day made specially for
you.
1,000,000 kisses and .hugs of
love!I Ilove you!
Love,
Your youngster,
Batemia, a.k.a. "Fluff" Daniels

For my mother,
Helen Nasir
TheOnlyOne
Your advices and meanings
Helped me to reason on deci-
sions I make.
Your love and care helped me
to share my heart with you,


that I thought would break.
When I fall you pick me up.
When I bleed you clean my
cuts.
When Iwasyoung,
I was foolish and I'd stumble,
Now I am righteous and hum-


I love you more
than I did before.
You showed me the Bible
scriptures,
and gave me hope for a better
life.
You even take care of my
brothers and sisters
And teach us what's wrong
and right.
With you I am happy,
without you I'd be lost.
I am joyful when we're laugh-
ing,
I would never trade you in, not
even for a large cost.
Only you can give me peace,
And you knowwho I am.
Your kindness will never cease,
You always take the time to
understand me.
So here's my thank you,
from me to you.
For showing me the right path,
That I am now headed to
I LOVE YOU!
Never Forget!
Love,
TinaRodriguez

For my mother,
Vaughn Jones
Dear Mother,
That's what mothers are called
who mean so much to their chil-
dren, Mother. I know you think
that I don't love and care for you,
but Mother, you just don't know
how much you mean to me.
You probably think that I don't
care for you because I'm always
back-talking. I always repent after
I talk to you in a cruel way. But I
know that this letter isn't enough
to express what you have done
for me. I cry at night in my dreams
just thinking of you leaving me on
this earth alone with nothing and
no one.
I guess that we have the same
feelings for each other because
we are the same, because we
both have the same tone of voice,
we both like to have fun and we
really are appreciative of each
other.
Right about now I think it's
time for me to close this letter, but
I just \\a-itEd to. let ou knou ri:, that
I love you and I'll love you forever.
Your baby girl,
Alkemia Jones

South Bay
Continued From Page 1
Glade to treat 100 percent of its
untreated wastewater following a
final consent order from the Florida
Department of Environmental Pro-
tection that requires South Bay to.
bring its wastewater system in
compliance with state standards,
South Bay officials push toward
quick resolution of the matter.
"The wastewater interconnect
has been under discussion for the
past several years and will move
both of our entities towards
strengthened intergovernmental
relations," the letter reads. "The city
of South Bay encourages the city of
Belle Glade to consider this agree-
ment so that DEP standards of
health, safety and welfare are rec-


ognized in this community."
South Bay has said it -will
assume all costs associated with
the necessary construction to build
the interconnect. South Bay's cost
for the interconnect will be covered
by a state revolving loan.
According to Mr. Tate, Belle
Glade is sufficiently capable of han-
dling the increase expected from
the addition of the connection.
That much is clear presently, he
said, but city staff continues to wait
on a final report outlining the finan-
cials involved in making the part-
nership happen.
A report by Neel Schaffer was
expected to be in the hands of city
administrators last week, the find-
ings of which will relate to the com-
mission the full cost of the connec-
tion.
According to Mr. Tate, the utility


rate structure and management
plan will be a key document in lay-
ing out the cost South Bay will incur
in maintaining the connection.
As it stands, the city has yet to
produce a set amount it will charge
for the bulk water. The report will
detail how much Belle Glade can
charge to cover the costs in every
thousand gallons of untreated
wastewater.
"This report will contain viable
information necessary to deter-
mine the cost of bulk wastewater
treatment," he said.
The information in the report
will be presented to the Belle Glade
City Commission at its May 16 regu-
lar meeting at the city hall cham-
bers.
"We're looking forward to pre-
senting this at our next meeting,"
City Manager Tate said last week.


Chief


Continued From Page 1
of South Bay.
The job now is the commis-
sion's to select the candidate most
suited to South Bay's specific
needs.
The candidates all reside in
South Florida, and are a quick car
ride away from South Bay.
The candidates interviewed
were: Robert Murrhee of Labelle,
Kenneth Holley of Moore Haven
and James Mims of Belle Glade.
Chief Morris resides in Loxa-
hatchee and has served as the
city's interim chief since Chief
Dowdell's resignation last year.
Dowdell turned in his resigna-
tion before accepting the chief of
police position in Belle Glade.


Briefs


Hope
Continued From Page 1
of seeking grants to meet that
goal.
Mr. Rivera envisions a center
in South Bay operating much
like the New Hope Center, locat-
ed just outside the city of Paho-
kee. That program now provides
an after-school program, a food
distribution center that serves
hundreds, adult education and
literacy classes, among other
services. The center is expand-
ing, with a center for medical
and additional academic servic-
es under construction. New
Hope is well known, with an
annual toy give-away during
Christmas that provides toys free


S~OW


of charge to families throughout
the area.
"Basically, we would like to
mirror what we're doing here,"
explained Mr. Rivera.
.Mr. Rivera explained that it
was Andres Fanjul, with Okee-
lanta, who first proposed the
idea of moving a branch of oper-
ations to South Bay. Subsequent
meetings with city officials have
taken that concept thus far.
Mayor Clarence Anthony sup,
ports the idea, and adds that the
program will meet a need that is
currently unmet within South
Bay for the targeted ages. :
"We've been talking to them
approximately one year and
we've got them where they're
ready to come to South Bay,"
said Mayor Anthony. "It can be
great progress for the city."

Nelson bill would reward states that track sex predators by satellite


MIAMI Encouraged by
- Florida lawmakers' quick pas-
sage of a state bill that aims to
improve tracking of sex offend-
ers, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson has
unveiled legislation to provide
federal funding for Florida and
other states that adopt similar
programs.
Nelson's bill would give up to
$30 million in grants to support
states with programs that get
tougher on those convicted of
preying on children by tracking
them with satellites, if they get
out of prison. A measure that just
passed in Florida requires 25-
year minimum prison terms for
those convicted of sex crimes
against children under 12, and
lifetime tracking by global posi-
tioning satellites (GPS) once out-
side prison.
The Florida law was prompt-
ed by the abduction and killing of
9-year-old Jessica Lunsford,
whose body was found March 19
near her Homosassa.home. The
slaying of a second girl, Sarah
Lunde, 13, of Ruskin, whose
body was found April 16, has-
tened passage of the bill, called
the Jessica Lunsford Act. In both
cases, convicted sex offenders
have been accused.
"To be effective, however,
tough laws must be properly
funded," Nelson said, speaking
about his bill that would require
the U.S. attorney general to over-
see $10 million in grants this
year, and $20 million next year,
for states that use GPS monitor-
ing of sex offenders.
In the U.S., there are an esti-/7
mated 380,000 registered sex
offenders. But thousands have
disappeared, authorities say. -
Nelson will present the bill -
The Sexual Predator Monitoring
Act to the American Civil Lib-
erties Union Foundation at a 7


p.m. Saturday dinner in Miami,
where the group is commemo-
rating its 40th anniversary; and,
also honoring U.S. Rep. Alcee
Hastings with a public-service
award named for a crusading for-
mer St. Petersburg Times editor,
Nelson Poynter.
The ACLU promotes itself as a
nonpartisan organization. And
the group often opposes govern-
ment restraints on individual lib-
erties. But it supports GPS moni-
toring of sexual predators.
The technology consists of
satellite systems and a tracking
device worn around the ankle.
When the wearer of the device is
in the wrong place, parole offi-
cers and police can be alerted.
Attached is a copy of Nelson's
legislation, and an AP back-
ground article.

109TH CONGRESS
1ST SESSION
A BILL to provide state and
local governments with financial
assistance that will increase their
ability and effectiveness in moni-
toring convicted sex offenders by
developing and implementing a
program using global positioning
systems to monitor convicted
sexual offenders or sexual preda-
tors released from confinement.
IN THE SENATE OF THE
-UNITED STATES
Mr. NELSON of Florida intro-
duced the following BILL:
To provide state and local gov-
ernments with financial assis-
tance that will increase their abil-
ity and effectiveness in
monitoring convicted sex offend-
ers by developing and imple-
menting a program using global
positioning systems to monitor
convicted sexual offenders or
sexual predators released from
confinement__
Be it enacted by the Senate
and House of Representatives of


the United States of America in
Congress assembled.
SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.
This Act may be cited as the
"Sexual Predator Monitoring Act
of 2005".
SEC. 2. FINDINGS.
Congress finds that:
(1) in recent years we have
seen multiple cases of convicted
sexual offenders serving proba-
tion abducting and murdering
young children;
(2) several states have begun
the development and implemen-
tation of outfitting convicted sex-
ual offenders with Global Posi-
tioning Systems to track their
movements while on probation;
(3) the employment of these
devices will assist law enforce-
ment in tracking the movements
and location of probationers in
real time to within 10 ft. of their
location;
(4) Global Positioning System
tracking will permit law enforce-
ment to ensure that convicted
sex offenders do not go to areas
restricted according to the terms
of their probation;
(5) Global Positioning Sys-
tems will serve to deter sexual
predators from re-offending as
they will know that their move-
ments are monitored and
tracked by law enforcement; and
(6) in the event that a convict-
ed sexual offender commits an
additional sex offense while on
probation and monitored with a
Global Positioning System, the
Global Positioning System tech-
nology will aid law enforcement'
in the investigation of these
crimes by quickly determining
the location of sexual offenders
within the area of the suspected
crime.
SEC. 3. SEXUAL PREDATOR
MONITORING PROGRAM.
(a) GRANTS AUTHORIZED.
(1) IN GENERAL The Attor-


ney General is authorized to
award grants and contracts to
State and local governments to
assist such States and local gov-
ernments in:
(A) carrying out programs to
outfit sexual offenders with elec-
tronic monitoring units; and
(B) the employment of law
enforcement officials necessary
to carry out such programs.
(2) DURATION The Secre-
tary shall award grants under this
Act for a period not to exceed 3
years.
(b) APPLICATION
(1) IN GENERAL. Each
State or local government desir-
ing a grant under this Act shall
submit an application to the
Attorney General at such time, in
such manner, and accompanied
by such information as the Attor-
ney General may reasonably
require.
(2) CONTENTS Each appli-
cation submitted pursuant to
paragraph (1) shall:
(A) describe the activities for
which assistance under this Act
is sought; and
(B) provide such additional
assurances as the Attorney Gen-
eral determines to be essential to
ensure compliance with the
requirements of this Act.
SEC. 4. PROPORTIONAL
SHARE
The Attorney General shall
ensure that each State with eligi-
ble programs receives a propor-
tional share of funding under this
Act based on the total number of
eligible states and the population
of sex offenders to be monitored
with global positioning systems
in those States.
SEC. 5. DEFINITION
In this Act, the term "sexual
offender" means an offender 18
years of age or older who com-
mits a sexual offense against a
minor.

USDA announces approval of county eligibility


GAINESVILLE Levy County
was recently approved as eligible
to participate in the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture's (USDA) Live-
stock Assistance Program (LAP),
announced Kevin Kelley, state
executive director for the Farm Ser-
vice Agency. This brings the total
number of eligible counties in
Florida to forty-two, which is equiv-
alent to 63 percent of the state.
"This program provides much
needed relief to livestock produc-
ers who had grazing losses due to
drought, severe weather and relat-
ed causes," said Kelley.
Producers of dairy and beef cat-
tle; bison and beefalo; goats;
swine; sheep; and certain equine,
elk and reindeer are now eligible to
participate in LAP.
To be eligible for LAP, a produc-
er's grazing land must be located in
a county designated as a primary
disaster under a Presidential or Sec-


retarial disaster declaration. The
county must have been approved
as a primary disaster county on or
after Jan. 1, 2003, for a disaster
occurring through Dec. 31, 2004.
To be approved, a county must
also have suffered a 40 percent or
greater loss of available grazing for
at least three consecutive months
as a result of damage caused by a
natural disaster.
Another eligibility requirement
is that a producer must have
owned their livestock during cer-
tain timeframes, which FSA refers
to as payment periods. Based on
Florida FSA County Committee rec-
ommendations approved by the
FSA State Committee, the follow-
ing lists LAP payment periods,
along with eligible counties for cal-
endar year 2004:
March 1 July 31 Collier,
DeSoto, Hardee, Hendry, Hillsbor-
ough, and Sarasota Counties;


March 1 August 31 Levy,
Palm Beach and Volusia Counties;
March 15 July 15 Alachua,
Bradford, Dixie, and Gilchrist
Counties.
March 15 July 31 Baker
and Columbia Counties;
March 15 August 31 -
Pasco, Polk and Hernando Coun-
ties;
March 15 September 15 -
Martin and Okeechobee Counties;
April 1 July 31 Lafayette,
Madison and Taylor Counties;
April 1 August 15 Union
County;
April 1 September 30 Indi-
an River and Lee Counties
April 15 July 15 Santa
Rosa County;
May 15 November 15 -
Broward, Glades, Highlands, and
St. Lucie Counties;
June 1 October 31 -Orange
County;


June 1 November 15 Cit-
rus and Sumter Counties;-
June 15 October 31 Duval,
Nassau County;
June 15 November, 15 -
Osceola and Brevard Counties;
July 1 November 15 Char-
lotte County;
August 1 November 15 -
Lake County;
August 15 November 15 -
Marion and Seminole Counties.
Santa Rosa County livestock
producers who owned livestock
from June 1 though Oct. 31, 2003
may also be eligible for LAP if they
had grazing losses due to drought,
severe weather and related causes.
A county may meet eligibility
requirements for both 2003 and
2004; however, a producer in that
county may receive benefits for
only one of those calendar years.
Assistance will not be available in
contiguous counties.


Authorized by the Military Con-
struction and Appropriations and
Emergency Hurricane Supplemen-
tal Appropriations Act, 2005 (2005
Act), the programs also provide
that producers who reduced the
numb e of livestock because of a
naturjlisaster shall not be penal-
ized thosee reductions. Produc-
ers will receive compensation for
the entire disaster payment period.
Benefits will be based on the num-
ber of livestock the producer
would have owned if the disaster
had not occurred. For livestock that
were sold in the course of routine
business, producers will receive
benefits for those animals only up
to the date of sale.
More details on LAP and other
disaster assistance programs are
available on USDA's Web site,
http://disaster.fsa.usda.gov/ or at
local USDA Service Centers and
FSA County Offices.


The U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture (USDA) prohibits discrimina-
tion in all its programs and activi-
ties on the basis of race, color,
national origin, gender, religion,
age, disability, political beliefs, sex-
ual orientation and marital or fami-
ly status. (Not all prohibited bases
apply to all programs.) Persons
with disabilities who require alter-
native means for communication
of program information (Braille,
large print, audio/tape, etc.) should
contact USDAs TARGET Center at
(202) 720-2600 (Voice and TDD).
To file a complaint of discrimina-
tion, write USDA, Director, Office of
Civil Rights, Room 326-W, Whitten
Building, 14th and Independence
Avenue, SW, Washington, D.C.,
20250-9410 or call (2020 720-5964
(Voice or TDD). USDA is an equal
opportunity provider and employ-
er.


Livestock imports restricted


TALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bronson
has announced the placement of
restrictions on the importation of
animals from states affected %with
Vesicular Stomatitis following a
confirmed case in New Mexico, the
first such case reported in the Unit-
ed States this year.
Vesicular Stomatitis is a highly
contagious, viral disease that
affects horses, cattle, swine and
occasionally sheep, goats and deer.
The virus can also cause flu-like
symptoms in people working with
infected animals.
Symptoms on animals include
blister-like lesions in the mouth, on
the tongue, lips, nostrils, hooves
and teats. While the virus doesn't
usually kill the animals, it does


result in significant weight loss and
milk production loss. It is also diffi-
cult to distinguish between this
virus and foot and mouth disease,
a devastating livestock disease
found outside the United States.
States and other countries often
impose movement restrictions on
animals from Vesicular Stomatitis
affected areas.
Last week, the USDA National
Veterinary Services Laboratories
confirmed the finding of two posi-
tive horses with clinical signs on a
cattle and horse ranch in Grant
County, New Mexico.
"I'm pleased to see that New
Mexico has taken, immediate
action to hold animals on the
affected premises," Mr. Bronson
said, "but the possibility that this
disease could be in other areas


makes it imperative that we have
rules in place to prevent the disease
from being imported into Florida."
Florida requires veterinary
inspection of susceptible animals
coming from states affected with
Vesicular Stomatitis. Hoofed ani-
mals entering Florida from New
Mexico will require prior permis-
sion for entry and must be accom-
panied by an official certificate of
veterinary inspection stating that
they are free of clinical signs of this
disease and have not been
exposed nor located within 10
miles of a positive premises within
the previous 30, days. Susceptible
animals will also be required to
have documentation to show they
have been tested and found nega-
tive within 10 days of movement to
Florida.


Florida Hall of Fame seeks nominations


The Florida Women's Hall
of Fame is now being accepted
by the Florida Commission on
the Status of Women. Since its
inception in 1982, the Hall of
Fame has recognized and hon-
ored Florida women who,
through their lives and works,
have made significant contri-
butions to the improvement of
life for all citizens of the state.
The commission accepts
nominations to the Hall of
Fame annually between April 1
and July 15. Following deliber-
ations, the commission will
recommend 10 nominees to
Governor Jeb Bush, who will
select up to three women for
induction into the Hall in a
March ceremony.
Last year's inductees were


Shirley D. Coletti, an advocate
for substance abusing women
and their families, and a driv-
ing force behind the founding
of Operation PAR (Parental
Awareness and Responsibili-
ty); Marion P. Hammer, a
nationally renowned
firearms/civil rights advocate
and the first woman president
of the National Rifle Associa-
tion (NRA), Hammer created
the highly acclaimed "Eddie
Eagle Gun Safety" program;
and Judith Kersey, first woman
guidance systems engineer in
the history of NASA, Kennedy
Space Center, and a strong
advocate for women in science
and engineering.
"The Florida. Commission
on the Status of Women is


proud to honor these out-
standing women who mean so
much to our state and our his-
tory," said Hall of Fame Com-
mittee Chair Anita Mitchell.
"Each year it is more difficult
to choose 10 finalists to send
to the Governor because of the
many superb nominations we
receive."
Nomination forms may be
obtained by writing: The Flori-
da Commission on the Status
of Women, Office of the Attor-
ney General, PL-01, The Capi-
tol, Tallahassee, FL 32399-
1050, or by calling (850)

MDA honors late goodwill ambassador


TUCSON, Ariz., The Mus-
cular Dystrophy Association has
created a competitive postdoctor-
al fellowship to honor former
MDA National Goodwill Ambas-
sador Mattie Stepanek, who died
last June from complications
associated with his rare neuro-
muscular disease, mitochondrial
myopathy (MM).
The Mattie Stepanek Postdoc-
toral Research Fellowship pro-
vides a salary stipend. of $60,000
per year for two years to a post-
doctoral fellow specializing in
MM research. Application forms
are available at
www.mdausa.org/research/rrga-
form.html.
MM causes generalized mus-
cle weakness and can affect res-
piration, heart rate, blood pres-
sure, speech, swallowing and


digestion. Stepanek's case
required a ventilator and supple-
mental oxygen as well as a power
wheelchair. The 13-year-old from
Maryland became world-famous
for his advocacy of peace and his
best-selling "Heartsongs" poetry
books, as well as his eloquent
presentations for MDA.
.The fellowship is designed to
draw new scientists into MDA's
extensive worldwide research
program and to expand its efforts
to defeat mitochondrial myopa-
thy. MDA currently funds nearly
400 research teams worldwide
seeking cures and treatments for
more than 40 neuromuscular dis-
eases.
"We're on the cutting edge of
medical science, and the Mattie

Attorney General issues consumer alert


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist issued a con-
sumer alert, warning. Floridians
about the unauthorized solicitation
of funds by Protect and Serve USA,
an organization that is using the
picture of murder victim Jessica
Lunsford to collect money.
The organization has placed
pictures of Jessica and John Evan-
der Couey, the man accused of her
murder, on approximately 500 col-
lection boxes placed in conven-
ience stores across the state. The
boxes also carry a statement that
asks consumers to donate $1 to
stop sexual predators. Jessica's pic-
ture is being used without the per-
mission of her father, Mark
Lunsford.
"This is absolutely uncon-
scionable," said Crist. "To use a
deceased child's picture without
the parent's permission is despica-
ble. Consumers need to be aware
that this organization is not con-
nected with the Lunsford family in,
any way, and appears to be doing
nothing more than capitalizing on
a tragedy that shocked our entire
state."
The solicitation could result in


civil or criminal actions against the
organization. The Attorney Gener-
al's Office has launched a formal
investigation under the Deceptive


and Unfair Trade Practices statute
and is working closely with the
Tampa Police Department in that
agency's investigative efforts..

May Is National Osteoporosis Month


DOVER, DE Osteoporosis
affects an estimated 44'million
people in the United States,
according to the National Osteo-
porosis Foundation (NOF). In
honor of National Osteoporosis
Awareness Month, the staff at
General Nutrition Center of Dover
is offering advice on how to-get.
enough calcium in your diet,
which has been identified as a key
component in reducing the risk of
the disease.
Nearly 50 percent of women
and 25 percent of men over the
age of 50 will have an osteoporo-
sis-related fracture in their
remaining lifetime, according to
the NOF. Along with weight-bear-
ing exercise, NOF recommends a.
diet rich in vitamin D and calcium
to help prevent this bone-weak-
ening disease.
"Ninety-nine percent of the
calcium in your body is found in
the bones and teeth where it is an
essential structural component,"
said Rachel Jones, MS, RD, nutri-
tionist at GNC.
If your .calcium intake is too
low to meet metabolic demands,
your body's control mechanisms
will pull calcium out of :your
bones to maintain a healthy sup-
.ply and to keep your cells func-
tioning normally.
"In other words, the rest of
your body takes precedence over
your bones when it comes to
available calcium," Jones said.
"For this reason, inadequate calci-
um intake can.lead to a weaken-
ing of the bones over time." '
The National Academy of Sci-"
ences recommends that Ameri-
cans consume between 500mg
and 1,300mg of calcium daily.
According to the United States
Department of Agriculture
(USDA), all age groups fall short
on getting the calcium they need
each day. For example, anyone
over the age of 50 should ingest
1,200 milligrams of calcium each
day.
To get adequate amounts of
calcium, the USDA recommends
three servings of dairy products
per day. One dairy serving
includes:


Milk: 8 ounces (1 cup) con-
tains up to 300 milligrams of calci-
um.
Cheese: (natural e.g. Ched-
dar, Mozzarella): 1-1.5 ounces
(the size of a matchbox) contains
up to 300 milligrams of calcium.
'Yogurt: 8 ounces (1 cup)
contains up to 400 milligrams of
calcium.
"If you can't get enough calci-
um through your diet, we strongly
recommend a nutritional supple-
ment," said Brian Teti, franchise
operator of GNC in Dover.
Equally critical to the amount
of calcium intake is the absorp-
tion rate of that calcium into the
bones. Ndt all calcium sources
are created equal in terms of
absorption. If you are taking a
supplement, Teti said, it is impor-
tant to consider the. type of calci-
um being used. The most com-
mon: calcium sources in
supplements include:
Calcium citrate malate (CCM):
Calcium citrate malate is one of
the most absorbable calciuims
available. It is composed of calci-
um and two organic fruit acids,


citric acid (from citrus fruits) and
malic acid (from apples). This
form has the highest absorption
rate of all calcium sources at 40
percent.
Calcium carbonate: Calcium
carbonate is mined from the earth
and has been one of the most
commonly used sources of sup-
plemental calcium. It is the most
economical form of calcium and
is available in a variety of tablets,
capsules and chewables. Calcium
carbonate is about 26 percent
absorbable.
Calcium citrate: Calcium cit-
rate is a combination of calcium
and citric acid. Because stomach
acids are needed for calcium to
be absorbed by the body, citric
acid (from fruits) provides an
acidic environment for improved
calcium absorption. Calcium cit-
rate is about 24 percent
absorbable.
For more information on
selecting the right calcium sup-
plement, visit GNC's Web site at
www.gnc.com or the Dover GNC.

4-H leader welcomes challenges as Cattlewomen's president


SARASOTA As a 4-H
leader, Marlene Strickland
helped build a program so pop-
ular there's a waiting list to join
- now she hopes to bring simi-
lar results to the nation's largest
beef industry organization for
women.
In February, Strickland took
office as president of American
National CattleWomen Inc.
(ANCW); a national, nonprofit
group of about 2,000 women
involved in ranching and relat-
ed agribusiness. She will guide
the organization for one year,
and plans to boost membership
using what she's learned during
three decades leading a Saraso-
ta 4-H club with her husband,
Don. The two are business
owners and part-time ranchers.
"My 4-H experiences have
given me ideas, hopes, goals
and training, which assisted me
in reaching this level in the beef
industry," she said.
The Stricklands lead the
Ridin' Rednecks, a Sarasota 4-H
club that boasts about 55 mem-
bers, so many that newcomers
are admitted only when previ-


ous members depart, she said.
Like all clubs in the Florida 4-H
Youth Development Program,
it's administered by the Univer-
sity of Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences. The
Stricklands became 4-H leaders
in 1975, because their daugh-
ters were involved in the club.
Though their children have
long since grown up 4-H
membership is open to youth
ages 8 to 18 the Stricklands
'enjoy the work so much that
they've stayed on. For Marlene,
running the club was invalu-
able preparation for her new
role.
"Planning meetings, agen-
das, trips, assigning commit-
tees, raising funds, recognizing
achievement, these are all goals
which should be common to
any organization," she said.
"And through 4-H I was able to
meet many people in livestock,
agriculture and the legislative
arena."
One of the most important
lessons Strickland took from 4-
H was that organizations stay
strong by reaching out to mem-


bers, she said. This spring,
she's putting the concept .into
practice by crisscrossing the
nation to visit ANCW members
in Washington State, Washing-
ton, D.C., Oklahoma, Arizona,
Alabama, Colorado and North
Dakota.
"I have been revitalized by
visiting all these states and see-
ing where our members live,
getting a glimpse of their
lifestyles and problems, and
getting their feedback," she
said.


ects are the National Beef
Cook-Off recipe contest and the
National Beef Ambassador Pro-
gram, a public speaking com-
petition for teenagers.
ANCW boasts 26 affiliate
organizations, including Florida
CattleWomen, a statewide
group Strickland joined in 1987.
Though she grew up on large
commercial cattle ranches in
Florida and Arizona, as an adult
Strickland has raised cattle
largely as a hobby. Marlene and
Don Strickland operate an elec-

Founded in 1952, ANCW has "My family background and

The group's best-known proj- industry, like inoculation and


marketing, and we can teach
our 4-H kids what we learn."
Strickland's involvement in
'the beef industry at a national
level began via Florida Cattle-
Women and the ANCW Nation-
al Beef Ambassador Program,
she said. In 1991, Florida Cattle-
Women asked her to help a
Florida youth compete in the
ambassador program's nation-
al finals and Strickland found
the program to be an ideal way
to help teens develop self-confi-
dence and leadership skills. In
the mid-1990s she was twice
elected president of Florida Cat-
tleWomen, which enabled her
to attend national ANCW meet-
ings, where she learned more
about the program and began
promoting it more in Florida.
In 1999, Strickland began
serving on a national commit-
tee for the ambassador pro-
gram, and also became a
regional director for ANCW In
2003, she was elected ANCW
vice president and the follow-
ing year was selected president-
elect at the ANCW national
convention in Phoenix.


Despite her responsibilities
with ANCW, Strickland spends
as much time as ever with the
Ridin' Rednecks, said Marcia
Morris, a UF extension agent
working for the Sarasota Coun-
ty 4-H program. The two have
been acquainted for five years.
"Marlene hasn't slowed
down one .bit," Morris said.
"She's also very involved with
her family, her business and her
church. She does so much, it's
almost like she has a twin."
Strickland says her leader-
ship philosophy can be
summed up in a phrase she
uses as the theme for her
ANCW presidency, "spread a
little sunshine, each one reach
one." She believes communica-
tion and cooperation are cru-
cial to any organization's suc-
cess, and sees 4-H promoting
those values within families.
"4-H provides entertain-
ment, education and some-
thing where a family can work
together and see progress," she
said. "In 4-H, winning is nice
but it isn't everything. Participa-
tion is more important."
