8 1 65 10 00017 7


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
PAHOKEE On May 8, a
Sunday, the three-man police
squad on duty in Pahokee called
in 20 units from the coast to con-
trol a crowd of nearly 4,000 gath-
ered at Martin Luther King Park.
Reports of public drunken-
ness, rowdy behavior, loud
music and even drug use were
listed by residents nearby, as well
as churchgoers who were leav-
ing Sunday service.
A helicopter was called in to


supervise the control and, even-
tually, the crowd was dispersed
and the situation was handled
without great incident.
It was not the first time that
officers resorted to such meas-
ures to disrupt a crowd that grew
out of control. And police depart-
ment officials swear that it won't
be the last time.
. Public scenes of misbehavior
such as that on May 8 have
plagued the community for the
past several years, with the police
department unable to tackle


such a large-scale problem with
less than a handful of officers at a
time. Recently though, the num-
bers have swelled to surprisingly
large proportions and the behav-
ior has caught the ire of the
members of the church nearby. -
Willie Killingsworth, a resi-
dent, is one of the complainants.
Visiting the city commission
recently, he pleaded for the city's
help in helping to remedy the
problem, which grows increas-
ingly worse by the week. A

Relay for Life



this weekend


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
PAHOKEE The annual
American Cancer Society Relay
for Life event is this weekend
and, already, participants are
getting ready for the affair.
With their walking shoes
firmly on, and with a host of
activities to tide them over for
the duration of the event, they
will be making the trek to Paho-
kee to take part in the worth-
while event.
Few efforts in the global
fight against cancer can be as
fun and entertaining, but, .then
again, the Relay for Life event
isn't your routine event. A
tremendously successful pro-'
gram the event is offered
throughout the country and
a staple event in the Glades,"

Torry Island area in Belle
Glade. Left, Susanna Lau-

Wednesday's event, gave
students a few words of

you plant it," she said.

Chief selection



nears for city


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
PAHOKEE With strong
community concerns raised at
its last city meeting regarding
problems in Pahokee, the
Pahokee City Commission has
requested that the police chief'
selection process begin imme-"
diately.
This, despite the city manag-
er having made the suggestion
weeks earlier that the appoint-
ment be delayed to sometime
in the late summer months.
A press release dated May
12 from Pahokee City Hall
explains that an invitation to
qualified candidates has been
released, alongside an adver-
tisement for the position in the
Florida League of Cities' Web
site.
"The selection. process for


identifying the next chief of
police will include a selection
committee 'with a clearly
defined mission identify
qualities (experience, educa-
tion) in the applicants that
address the problems faced by
the city of Pahokee in the area
of Law Enforcement," the
press release reads.
The commission- will be
tasked with ranking the pool of
candidates in order for review
by the. city. Currently, there
have been only two applicants
to submit their resumes for the
position. Now that the job is
being advertised, more are
expected within the next few
weeks.

Alzheimer's Community


Care building completed


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
PAHOKEE Looking out
across Barfield and First Street
in Pahokee, residents now see
the finished product in the
Alzheimer Community Care's
new daycare building.
After months of construc-
tion, and successful fundraising
efforts, the organization, now
looks forward to applying for
certification and receiving
patients at the new facility.
According to Mary Barnes,
who runs ACC, based in West
Palm Beach, the organization
seeks to fill a void in the care
that is afforded Alzheimer's
patients throughout the Glades
through one-on-one daycare
services.


With a willingness to meet
the unmet needs of the patients,
the organization hopes to help
families coping with the effects
of the disease in relatives. There
are approximately 1,200
patients in the area coping with
Alzheimer's and other demen-
tia-associated disorders, accord-
ing to ACC.
"When you add to that the
families, the number doubles,"
said Ms. Barnes. "It is quite an
impact."
The organization had previ-
ously operated out of the old
Pahokee Cafeteria, where resi-
dents from Pahokee and the
nearby cities who have impact-
ed with the disease were
watched over at the daycare


center.
Hurricanes Frances and
Jeanne seemed to threaten the
project temporarily last year,
while the construction project
was well underway, but, in the
end, didn't stop the organiza-
tion from seeing its plans
through. The company worked
through other hurdles before
the project was finished several
weeks ago.
The building, approximately
2,700-square-feet features an
outside area, a community
room and a closed-in porch for
patients and visiting caregiver
rooms throughout the facility
will be used to house a number

The Alzheimer's Community Care building is finished and com-
pany representatives are hoping for a grand opening soon.

Buckle up: Seat belts save lives


An auto accident reported on
the weekend television news
caught my attention. A teenage
driver apparently lost control of his
vehicle, resulting in a fatal crash.
"My son would probably still be
alive if he had worn his seat belt,"
said the grieving father.
The man urged all parents
watching to make sure their chil-
dren wear their seat belts.
Traveling by automobile can be
dangerous. You can't control what
the other drivers on the road will
do. If you are a passenger, you have
even less control of the situation.
But you can control one aspect of
your own safety when you decide
whether or not you put on a seat
belt.
The Florida Highway Patrol has
spent a lot of time and money try-
ing to get that message across: Seat
belts save lives.
Statistics from the Florida
Department of Highway Safety and
Motor Vehicles show that more
than half the drivers and occupants
in crashes suffer no injuries
because they used seat belts,


with Katrina Elsken

airbags or both.
Nearly 60 percent of those who
die in auto accidents were not
wearing their seat belts.
Seat belts don't save people
every time sometimes the
impact is too severe. But they offer
crucial protection, first from the
aftershocks of every collision,
according to the FHP.
An object in motion tends to
stay in motion. In a car crash, the
vehicle may be stopped, but every-
thing in it that is not fastened down
keeps moving. This force can
throw,the car's occupants forward
- even through or out a window.
In the case of rollover accidents,

those ejected from the vehicle can
wind up underneath it.
Airbags are an important safety
tool, but they don't take the place
of seat belts.
How can you make sure your
teenage children buckle up? Make
it a habit that becomes automatic.
Insist that every person in your car
wears a seatbelt. And since chil-
dren learn best from example -
make sure they always see their
parents buckle up as well.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise program, con-
sult your doctor. This is especially
important if you are on any pre-
scription, medications. Some drugs
interact badly with foods that
would otherwise be considered
"healthy".

freely, the newspaper reserves the right to edit calls for clarity,
brevity, relevance and fairness.
He did his time, let it go
I am so sick and tired of hearing the same thing or reading the same
thing about J.P. Sasser and Robert Love. It's a shame and it's a disgrace.
First of all, I think the whole.situation is racial. I've known Robert Love
for a number of years. Yes, he's a felon, just like other felons. He did his
time he served his time, so why do we keep dwelling on the same
thihg. Get your facts in order. There are other people that have commit-
ted crimes, that have went to prison, that have done their thing and are
still doing their thing and did nothing about it. But just because, and
I'm going to say it, a black man that is a felon, you want to keep throw-
ing the same things up week after week after week. It's old news. He
served his time, so it should be done with. The bottom line is what
happened to him when he was beaten and almost killed was a tragedy.

Hats off to Mayor Wilson
This is in support of Mayor Steve Wilson. I just wanted to say hats
off to you. Keep your head up, stay strong, and be encouraged. There
are a lot of sore losers, a lot of crybabies, they need to stop crying, stop
whining and just accept the facts. You are doing a wonderful job for
this city. Keep doing what you are doing. Hold your head up and walk
like the man you are. Congratulations and I support you 100 percent.

Put up or shut up
I have a question. If Robert Love was such a big drug lord, this big
time drug dealer, why isn't he in prison now? Why do we continue to
dwell on the past? X-felon, yes, he did serve his time. If you have evi-
dence, put the evidence where your mouth is. If not, you need to shut
up with the accusations. It's irritating.
Feeding you lies
I would like the Sun newspaper to call Mr. Massilotti's office, our
county commissioner. I was appalled at Pahokee's Tuesday night city
commission meeting to hear our county commissioner suggest that
the city of Pahokee name their splash pad, the water park going for the
kids, after Mr. Robert Love. The man still sells drugs to kids in Pahokee.
Mr. Massilotti, you are being fed a bunch of lies from city hall.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. This was a baddogged call and, of
course, the suggestion of naming the splash-pad after Mr. Love has been
recanted. Also, as of press time, Mr. Love has not been convicted of any
wrongdoing, in regards to "still" being engaged in illegal activities.

Do the right thing
I think Mayor Wilson should prove he cares about the people of Belle
Glade and give the city workers the back pay they are due. How would
he feel if someone did -the same thing to him or his family members?
People need their money and their raises. They have families they are
having to take care of. Maybe it is time for those people to band together
and get a lawyer and sue the city, if necessary. Mr. Wilson, you can only
play God for so long. What goes around does come around, so do what
is right. What the people elected you to do and pay the employees their
back pay. Theydo need it. Pray about this and I thinkyou'll realize it.

Judge not
I'm calling concerning the mayor of Pahokee and the city manager.
I just want to tell them don't lose one night of sleep over what the for-
mer chief of police had to do to them, because they are making the
right decisions and I think he (mayor) is a good man and a good city
manager. And the former chief of police, he's the type. of man who
would throw a rock and hide his hand behind his back. Robert Love
might have used to be a dope dealer, but he's no longer a dope dealer.
He's a citizen and a good citizen of Pahokee. You can't judge a book by
its cover.
Proving a point?
The new chief of police for Belle Glade needs to st 6off the streets
and let the officers do their jobs. You see more of the chief on the street
than you do the officers. The chief's job is not to harass the citizens of
Belle Glade. It's to supervise your officers and make sure they do their
jobs. The former chief didn't get in the way of the officers he let
them do their jobs. Everybody knows you are the chief of police and
you don't have to prove a point to people.


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Is it true that
if you see a bird eating a certain
berry, insect, or bug; that you could
consider it to be non-toxic? Thanks
Doc, Tanya in Pt. St. Lucie.
A: Well hey there Tanya! For the
most part yes! However, not 100
percent of the time. Birds have a
learned instinct too. In some cases
they have to eat something that
makes them sick, so to learn not to
repeat the behavior a second time.
Berries probably do not fall into this
category. So, yes! Birds do have a
special berry ESP so to speak. As far
as insects are concerned, some of
them mimic each other as a sur-
vival tool. Oh boy, now were going
back to my Evolutionary Biology
Class at FIU! This mimicry is called


"Batesian Mimicry". A classic
example of this, is the mimicry
between the
Vicroy Moth,
and the
Monarch But-
terfly. (My
favorite college
professor Dr.
Susan Koptur
would be so
proud I remem-
bered!) The Vicroy looks almost
exactly like the Monarch, but just a
tad smaller. The Monarch is very
good eating, and the Vicroy makes
a bird vomit. So, if a bird eats a
Vicroy and vomits, he probably
won't try to eat anything that looks
like a Vicroy or Monarch. Unless,

Association


Friends in high places
Well, once again this is the way we do it in Pahokee. Headlines of
the local section of the Palm Beach Post today, "City may name park
after felon." Yes sir, Mr. Sasser's buddy is now County Commissioner
Masilotti's buddy.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. Obviously this call was received
prior to the decision to recant the initial suggestion.
How low can you go
You know the dude that the mayor hates, the one that's always
pulling weeds around town? You know what? The dude is right. Our
mayor and our city manager are corrupt. I cannot imagine the man
who sold me drugs is going to have a darn park named after him. My
goodness, how low can my town go?

How dare they
Just when you thought the mayor of Pahokee couldn't dig a hole
any deeper, he does it. How dare the man and his two hip pocket com-
missioners and the city manager we have, how dare they even think
about naming a children's park after a convicted felon? Especially one
that was just arrested for 58 grams of marijuana in the back of his car.
Gee Mr. Mayor, are you in the drug ring too?
See the error of your ways
Just when we thought Mayor Sasser couldn't do anymore to
embarrass the city of Pahokee, he proves us wrong. To name a city
facility after an admitted convicted felon who was recently arrested
with a significant amount of marijuana, chose a new height of con-
tempt for the city residents. Mr. Love said he's reformed, but his recent
arrest says different. How can he compare himself to someone like
Nelson Mandella? That's unbelievable. This facility was in discussion
with the county long before Mr. Love came into the picture. So, I don't
know how he can take the credit for it. Many people have done a lot
more for the city and have not been anywhere near as disruptive. If the
people who put Mr. Sasser where he is take an honest look at what's
going on, I believe they will see the error of their ways.

School board policy questioned
I have a question for the school board. How can you allow a con-
victed felon, who was recently charged with driving infractions and
possession of marijuana to have free reign with the students? I would
imagine the parents have serious concerns. And I believe this is against
your policy in promoting student safety.

Can't get my records?
When I thought Glades General Hospital was on the upturn, I was
sadly mistaken. I just went to pick up film to take to a doctor's appoint-
ment for this surgeon because he needs to see the visual as well as the
requests. I was told I could not get film prior to April 05 because they
changed companies. How ridiculous can that be? My surgeon needs to
see the film. So, you telling me that I can't get them is just ludicrous.
I've never heard of such a thing. How bad does it have to get at Glades
General before something is really, really done about their lack of prop-
er servitude? I am very, very disheartened by this recent revelation.

Not fair to children
This a comment to the water sports park that's going in Pahokee. I
don' think it's too fair that they would name it after a convicted felon.
That's not good for children.

Gas guzzler
I would like to speak out on the things that are happening in our city
of Belle Glade: I'd like to know why it is that one of our city officials can
drive a big SUV when we can't afford to pay our laborers a fair pay that
they have earned over the years. I'd also like to know why it is that the
city keeps hiring people that have been dismissed from other govern-
ment offices because of indiscriminate activities and we keep hiring
them here again, again, and again. This city is not getting anywhere.

Myopic editor
-DearaMr. Myopic Editor. I hate to.point this out. But if you look in
your Speak Out column, just eight inches above the line that says, "we
do not have a Jesus on staff." You'll see a byline in your paper: Jose
Jesus Zaragosa. What's going on?
Editor's note: Thanks for calling: Myopic is an adjective for Myopia,
meaning a lack of foresight or a condition relating to abnormal eye-
sight or nearsightedness. As to the last response to your previous com-
ment, the previous editor's note was referring to: A taunting, sneering,
cutting, or caustic remark; jibe or jeer generally ironic in nature.


he needs to make the same mis-
take twice in order to learn the les-
son. ( Kinda a lot like many
humans. Ha!) So Tanya, I guess the
moral to this story is don't eat
berries, bugs or insects unless they
are properly packaged for sale at
the grocery store! Best Wishes, Doc
Savvy.
Q: Dear Doc Savvy. What is a
safe, inexpensive product to use in
your home to prevent flea infesta-
tion? We love your radio show -
Jessica and Eric in Loxahatchee.
A: Well thank you for tuning in
guys! Ok, I have to premise this
answer by saying that flea control is
in three places. Control and treat-
ment of the outside environment,
inside environment, and on the pet!
If you don't do all three with a safe
and effective product, you will NOT
get the fleas under control. Even if
you do all three, you will still see an
occasional flea. This is part of being
a Floridian. My favorite choice to
control the fleas inside the home is
a product called "20 Mule Power
Borax". It's simply an old brand of


laundry detergent. It can be safely
sprinkled on carpets, pet bedding,
and area rugs, and left for a few
days before vacuuming. Now, this
is non-toxic to pets, but please
don't think it is okay for your pet to
sit there and lick it off the run! It will
cause vomiting and diarrhea! Keep
the pets away from treated areas
until it is vacuumed off. I recom-
mend that this is repeated every 2
weeks until things are under con-
trol. Some folks do it year round. If
you have mostly tile, then just do
pet bedding and area rugs.
Remember, use a quality VETERI-
NARY ONLY flea product on your
pet, and, consult your local hard-
ware store for a safe and effective
recommendation. for your yard.
Hope that helps Jessica and Eric!
Take care, Doc Savvy.

Letter to the Editor


Understand
the reasons
Dear editor:
Re: Recent Speak Out article
regarding Sweet Corn Fiesta
For the past five years since we
started the Sweet Corn Fiesta we
have heard many comments about
the Fiesta not being held in the
Glades. I hope this will help clear
up these questions. First and fore-
most, both have very important
and exciting festivals. Belle Glade
has Black Gold Jubilee and Paho-
kee has the Grassy Waters Festival,
each complimenting their commu-
nities. We would not want to
infringe on either event. Secondly,
and just as important, we have to
hold our fiesta in the middle or end
of April, when our crops are hope-
fully plentiful. That would put it too
close to the Black Gold Jubilee.
Our principal goal in forming
the Sweet Corn Fiesta was to make
more people aware of the thou-
sands of acres of sweet corn grown
in Western Palm Beach County. If
we were to hold this event in the


Glades it would be like preaching
to the choir.
When the South Florida Fair
heard of our plans and thoughts,
they too got excited for they were
looking for new events in the Yes-
teryear Village. It all made sense to
us, what better centrally located
site could we find to bring.our story
to the public, and such a cute back-
ground to showcase our event.
We have had the opportunity to
impact thousands of consumers
about our delicious sweet corn and
there is a vibrant sweet corn indus-
try only 25 miles west of the village,
in the heart of Western Palm Beach
County.
I do believe that we are making
a statement for our corn industry
and the wonderful communities in
the Glades.
For further information please
feel free to contact the Western
Palm Beach County Farm Bureau

ing in a theater is it's different
everyday. You work with different
people all the time. Even though a
lot of work and a lot of prepara-
tion is involved in getting ready for
what's coming up, the end result
is always very rewarding. It's a
very positive business to be in.
(Q: Do you see yourself doing
anything else?) No. I really can't.
When I moved to Belle Glade and
my kids were small, I stayed at
home for 10 years with my kids
before I started working. I always
thought to myself, "You know, if I
ever decide to go back to work,
what I'd really love to do is either
work at the chamber of com-
merce or at the Dolly Hand." I've
done both now. I feel really fortu-
nate, very blessed.
Q: Can you describe yourself?
A: I am a very positive person. I
love people. I love working with
people and being with people.
I'm very determined. I like to
think of myself as loving, friendly,
devoted. (Q: Do you think you
convey that to the people you
know?) I hope so. My husband
might disagree. I consider myself
devoted, trustworthy and honest.
Q: What scares you?
A: I don't live with a lot of fear
of anything, except snakes and
bugs and mice. I would have to
say probably losing a loved one
may be the thing that I might be
the most afraid of, but it's not
something I dwell on or to think
about.
I am a very positive person.
The only time I've every really
even thought about it was my
son-is a pilot, my oldest, he's still
in college and when he first got
his pilot's license, he came home
from school and took my other
two sons up in an airplane ride.
That's the only time I've ever real-
ly thought about it. As I watched
that: plane go down the runway, I
thought: There goes all three of
my children in an airplane and
one of them is flying it.
Q: What is your favorite song?
A: My favorite genre is Rock
and Roll, but I .like all kinds of
music. I think being involved in
the theater and arts throughout
my life I've learned to appreci-
ate every kind of music. I can lis-
ten to anything my least
favorite is Country. (Q: Why?) I

Leigh Woodham
just don't-know. And I have two
people in my household that love
Country music. So, that's interest-
ing. My favorite is Rock and Roll,
but I don't think I have a favorite
song.
Q: What irks you?
A: Debbie, quit laughing.
There's probably a lot of things
that could, but I find it really does-
n't do any good to display your
dissatisfaction or unhappiness
with something. I rarely take it out
on other individuals. I do get frus-
trated but I try not to display it.
When there's a bad situation or
something just isn't working out
and there's nothing I can do to
make it work, that's very frustrat-
ing to me. I feel like I'm in the
business of making people happy,
that's what we do here at the the-
ater. Even if it doesn't involve the
theater, if I can't make it have a
good outcome, that's very frus-
trating to me. And it does happen
sometimes.
Q: What memory do you hold
dear to you?
A: Of course, the births of my
children. I wouldn't say the actual
birth is memorable as an endear-
ing experience, but having a fami-
ly. All I ever wanted to do my
whole life was get married and
raise a family. Having a career
wasn't important to me. My par-
ents made me go to college, and
I'm very glad that they did, but all I
really ever wanted to do was get
married and have my family.
When I got married, that might be
my most endearing memory.
(Q: How did he propose?) My
husband is a very traditional man
and he ialK called my parents
and asked permission. My father
spilled the beans, not knowing he
hadn't asked me yet and told me.
My father was away, he was going
to be gone for about three weeks.
All this happened when my dad
was away. My dad was in Arizona,
he was in Indiana and my mom
was in Boca, where I grew up. He
called my parents and talked to
them. I went to Indiana and he
actually got down on his knees
and proposed to me.
(Q: Did you say yes immedi-
ately?) I'm a jokester, I'm a real
jokester. I told him, "I don't know,
I'm going to have to think about
.it." But of course I said yes.

Glades Central Students
Visit Spanish Exhibit
Over sixty Social Studies stu-
dents from Glades Central Com-


munity High School traveled last
week to tour the Norton Museum
of Art and discovered Spain in the
Age of Exploration 1492-1819. The
exhibit included the original
Adams-Omis Treaty that ceded
Florida to the United States in 1819.
Students actually had the
opportunity to wear types of armor
that the Spanish wore during the
age of exploration. Erical Smith, a
junior, replied, "I had no idea the
armor was that heavy" Also, stu-
dents viewed early maps and an
authentic journal that describes
Christopher Columbus' first voyage
to the Americas. Exhibits like this
really bring history to life." Said
Aima Zavala a junior.

Pahokee Middle/
Senior High School
Pahokee Middle/Senior High
School will hold their last SACC
Meeting for the school year 2004-
2005 on Monday, May 23 at 6:30
p.m., in the Media Center. Every-
one is invited to attend, for further

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:
Roses are red and violets are
blue.
I don't know what I'd do with-
out you.
You are the sun that shines on
me.
You are the mother who will
cry for me.
So I'm giving you thanks for
the things that you do,
Like sweeping my room and
cleaning my shoes.
Thanks yes, but I think you
really should know,
That all mothers need to be
just like you!
Your son,
Jose Flores
For my mother,
Myra Linda Baker
Happy Mother's Day!!
You were the one that brought
me in this world.
You are a person that I won't
put anyone above.
You are like a flower, Ma, you
spread much love.


You know you are a person
that I'm mostly thinking of.
You never told me anything
wrong to do.
That's why I'll give my life for
you.,
It may not seem like anything
much,
For your love is like God's
touch.
You are just so very sweet,
But you never let anyone step
on your feet.
Your love is like the sun.
It brightens up my day.
Every time I look at you I know
there's a way.
You always catch me when I
fall
I know your love will help me
through it all that I say just don't
explain
How sweet, special and
unique you are.
But all I'm able to say, Ma is
Happy Mother's Day!
Love,
Lay-lay (Lacey Riley,
a.k.a. Lay-Lay)
For my mother,
Ruby Bouie
Dear Mother,
I'm writing you to let you
know I want to wish you a Happy


Mother's Day and also I want to
thank you for everything you did
for me since I have been born.
Mom, I love you, also, I'm very
glad you are there when no one
else is there. I thank the Lord that
He blessed me in your life. You
are like an angel to me because
you always stick by my side and I
thank you for that. I don't know
any other mother who can do the
things that you have done for me,
so I want to let you know that I
love you and you continue to do
the things you are doing for me.
Love,
QuashayBouie
For my mother, Maria
de los angeles Saucedo
"One of the Most"
She gave birth to me, she gave
life.
She gave love to me, she gave
time.
I'm not the only one, but one
of the most fortunate
to have a mother like her
who illuminates my life each
time it grows dark.
There is no other face I'd
rather see,
if it's not hers.
I'd give everything I have just
to see her face,


to see her smile, or the twinkle
in her eyes.
I'm not the only one but I am
one of the most
who appreciates their mother,
their love and devotion.
I am for sure without a doubt
one of the most.
By: Angelica Saucedo
For my mother,
Patricio
Today is Mother's Day, a day
when all mothers are appreciated
for what they have done for us. I
thank you for giving me love and
making me be strong. There are
many kids who don't have a
mother, but I'm sure you would
be a great mother to them
because your love is tender,
sweet, and it brings joy. I'm thank-
ful that I have a mother because if
I didn't have you, I wouldn't be
the person I am because you have
taught me to be strong and that's
why I love you.
I thank you for being there on
my side when I cry or when I feel
down.
I love you and that's why we
celebrate this Mother's Day with
you.
Love,
Larinitsha Butler

Lady Terriers topple Tampa


By Mark Young
Following their district champi-
onship romp last week, the Moore
Haven Lady Terriers softball squad
continued to pick up momentum
by thrashing Tampa Prep in their
first ever regional championship
tournament appearance.
The clay diamond sparkled for
the Lady Terriers who started off
the action with a bang when Sierra
Dionne led off the game with a drag
bunt base hit. Two more bunt sin-
gles from Ashanti Shepherd and
Kara Anderson loaded up the bags
and Dionne would touch home
plate on a fielder's choice RBI from
Chantell Morris.
Moore Haven opened up the
game with a 1-0 lead, but blew
open the doors in the second
inning when Tampa Prep gave up a
walk and an error, putting a pair of
Lady Terriers in scoring position for
Dionne's second trip to the plate.
Dionne made Tampa Prep pay for
their mistakes with a RBI single fol-
lowed by a RBI single from Shep-
herd. Mary Randolph and Susan
Mathis were the first two on the
bags and good base running,
including a stolen bag from Mathis
allowed both runners to score.


In all, the Lady Terriers crossed
five runners across home plate to
open up a 6-0 advantage. Moore
Haven added another run in the
fourth inning when a pair of errors
allowed Morris to pick up a RBI sin-
gle, as the Lady Terriers jumped out
to a 7-0 lead after four innings of
play.
Tampa Prep closed the gap in
the top of the fifth, scoring a pair of
runs, but the Lady Terriers cush-
ioned their advantage in the bot-
tom of the sixth, scoring a trio of
runs off of a pair of walks, two
errors, two passed balls, a pair of
stolen bags, and a RBI single from
Morris.
Moore Haven's dream season
continued after winning their first
district championship, they con-
cluded their first regional appear-
ance with a solid 10-2 victory over
Tampa Prep, but the reward was to
face the number one team in 2A-
McKeel Academy.
The Lakeland squad found
themselves up against a feisty Lady
Terrier squad and the result was
scoreless battle through the first
four innings of action. McKeel
eventually held a small 1-0 advan-
tage and took advantage of one big
inning to bring the Lady Terriers'


season to a conclusion.
Moore Haven head coach, Chris
Goodwin, said his squad came out
against McKeel Academy a little
nervous and a little flat, but could-
n't be prouder of his squad's 18-10
overall record, their district champi-
onship, and the fact they advanced
in regional competition. According
to coach Goodwin, this year's per-
formance brings much excitement
for the future of this very young ball
club.
"We only lose one player on
next year's team," he said. "We will
be back with a vengance. Look out
FHSAA 2006 State Finals here
we come."
The team wished to extend a
special thank you to Lisa Randolph
(scorekeeper), Kathy Mathis
(announcer), Dawn and Doug
Manke, and Mr. and Mrs. McQuern
for being so supportive to the
squad.
"Thanks to all of our sponsors
that support us each year and all of
the other parents and fans," said
coach Goodwin. "Mrs. Janice
Brown is to receive special recogni-
tion for all of her hard work that she
contributes to Moore Haven High
School's athletic programs."

past to promote a partnership
between the churches and the
city to tackle the social problem
associated with the misbehavior.
Out of over 60 local churches
asked to participate, only five ini-

number that has increased only
by three in the last year, according
to City Manager Lillie Latimore. A
closer union between the two
would have resulted in dramati-
cally different results, argued Ms.
Latimore.
"There are some serious social
problems that need to be

But it won't be easy, and,
according to city officials, it won't
be pretty.
The concept will be simple: To
raid the areas and arrest anyone
breaking the law and discourage
large crowds from gathering.
"Once we start, we're not
going to stop until it's cleaned
permanently," said Chief Gonza-
lez. "After that, it's up to the com-
munity to keep it that way."
City Manager Latimore, who
continues to ask for the involve-


with a slew of entertaining things
to see and do throughout the 18-
hour event.
And the Glades area takes its
Relay for Life seriously.
In the past, historic match-ups
between local police departments
- the Battle of the Badge have
pitted officers against officers in
Gladiatorial showdowns. The
donut-eating contest comes to
mind, as well as sumo wrestling,
one of the more popular events.
This year, participants are told
to prepare for more of the same
style of events to occupy the time.
One of the attractions this year
is supposed to be the city manag-

day, May 21 from 2-4 p.m. All fami-
lies with children entering grades
Kindergarten-5th grade are wel-


ment of the churches, warned
commissioners and residents
about the times ahead. "It's going
to be painful, and you should
know that," she said.
Still, to the residents who have
grappled with the problem in the
past, it is a welcome hardship.
"They were outnumbered 100
to one," recalled Corrimissioner
Gary McEntire, who visited the
area after making a call to the
proper authorities one Sunday
night. Commissioner McEntire
expressed frustration in various
aspects of the issue, including the
influence of older adults on the
youth: "They're corrupting the.
youth." To the number of busi-
nesses that profit from the unruly
crowds: "There are businesses
that cater to it, that thrive on it."
A result of the recent com-
plaints has led the city to review
enforceable laws that may help
law enforcement in cutting down
on the crowds. An example is the


er-dunking game, where Belle
Glade City Manager Houston Tate
has courageously volunteered to
give; participants a chance at
dunking him in a pool of water, if
they hit the mark. It is merely one
of the many games available.
A Luminaria Service caps off
the activities. A poignant break in
the games and entertainment, the
service remembers those who
have succumbed to the disease,
or are battling against it. During
the service, the lights in the stadi-
um are dimmed and participants
remember their loved ones.

Spence, one of the many people

noise ordinance that the city cur-
rently lacks. Without it, officers
are powerless in ordering some-
one to shut off loud music. The
city attorney, along with city staff,
are working on enacting a law
that will address the issue.
Commissioner Allie Biggs has
felt the irritation first-hand. She
now thinks twice before visiting
her mother and driving through
South Lake, fearful that she might
hit someone crowding the toad-
way.
Commissioner Biggs agreed
that the chief's method will have
to be carried through, while push-
ing for a collaboration between
the city and the local churches.
"This is not going to stop until all
of us band together," she said.
"We need to take our streets
back. That [Martin Luther King
Park] is supposed to be a drug-
free, alcoholic-free park and.
it's full of it."


behind the event, the turnout at
Relay is almost always great. With
schools taking an active'role in
the event, and the different cities
in the Glades participating, along
with others, the event is routinely
a success.
Organizers hope that will be
the case again this weekend.
Finally, organizers are hoping
that the rain won't spoil the festiv-
ities. In the past, residents have
bravely battled the showers,
organizers say, without regard to
the inconvenience. Still, they
hope that won't be the case this
year.

of different services, including
what is hoped will be a clinic
room in partnership with a local
healthcare organization.
ACC will be applying for a
license after getting the go-ahead
from the health department and
other regulatory agencies. Com-
pany representatives say it is only
a matter of months before the
facility is opened to the public.
The target date for the start of
services is June, with a grand
opening date possibly in the fall.
Administrators thank the com-
munity for its support in getting
the project off the ground.
From the beginning, it has
been the community that has
stepped up to the plate in wel-


coming the project. It was the
Pahokee Women's Club that
inspired the organization to con-
struct a new facility, with the
members of that club donating
the land on which the facility is
now located. Club members felt
that the "legacy" of the women's
club could be carried on through
the contributions of the daycare
center in Pahokee.
.Since then, ACC has been suc-
cessful in raising much of the
approximately $600,000 cost of
building the facility. The county
has chipped in, with Palm Beach
County Commissioner Tony
Masilotti throwing his support
behind the concept, and ACC
received a $250,000 Community
Development Block Grant for use
in the construction.
Throughout the planning,
community members chipped in
with donations with Homer and


Dolly Hand and the Royal's Furni-
ture Company among those
donating. The Lost Tree Charita-
ble organization and others
helped as well.
It is indicative of the communi-
ty's desire to see the realization of
the facility, said Donia Roberts,
who serves the company as the
chair of the fundraising commit-
tee.
"I'm grateful we've had the
support of the community," she
said. "This is a greatly-needed
service. We haven't had anything
like that facility. This will give us
the place we need."
Community leaders fully sup-
port the concept.
"I think the new facility shows
the commitment of.Alzheimer's

Board authorizes public process


At the regularly scheduled meet-
ing of the South Florida Water Man-
agement District on May 11, the
Governing Board authorized the
publication of a Notice of Rule
Development to begin a public
process to develop rules that will
enhance water quality treatment in
much of Southwest Florida.
The Governing Board action
comes after several months of col-
laborative meetings with environ-
mental and development groups to
solicit input on water quality con-
cerns in Southwest Florida.
"The coordination and cooper-


ation from the divergent groups we
have met with has greatly con-
tributed to our ability to set criteria
that will not only enhance water
quality, but will also give clear
direction to the development com-
munity on water quality require-
ments," said Alice Carlson, District
Governing Board member. "I am
hopeful that the expanded public
process we go through in Rule
Development will allow for addi-
tional input from the public."
Currently, applications are
reviewed and evaluated on a proj-
ect-by-project basis for additional


treatment measures to provide
assurances that the project will not
cause or contribute to the contin-
ued impairment of water bodies. A
basin rule would provide clear cri-
teria regarding the reasonable
assurances necessary to demon-
strate that a project will not cause
or contribute to continued impair-
ment.
A basin rule will also minimize
potential for healthy waters to
become impaired and may reduce
the cost and difficulty of restoring
impaired waters.
"Most projects in the Southwest

"We are going into the normal
rainy season, with the start of the

weeks away. In order for bottom
plants to grow, the lake level will
have to be dropped to 12 feet or
even lower and kept that low until
plants begin to grow and get a
good hold of the earth before
allowing the lake to rise again,"
said Mr. Fox.
Captain Terry Garrels, a guide at
Roland Martin's Marina in Clewis-
ton and the owner of "Big 0" Air-
boat Tours, stated, "Something

After publication of the Notice

will publish a schedule of public

iting public input in developing the

up no matter what it takes."
The towns around Lake Okee-
chobee depend on the lake. It
brings in tourists and fishermen. It
provides water to large cities to the
south and enjoyment and income
to the thousands who live and
work on it.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District (SFWMD) met
Wednesday, May 11, to discuss the
plight of Lake Okeechobee. After
hearing from officials such as
Susan Gray, director of the district's
Lake Okeechobee division, the
board agreed that the district might
have to take drastic measures to
clean up the lake. The measures
include creating man-made
drought conditions by dropping the
lake level to 12 feet, and installing
temporary pumps to move water
between the lake and surrounding.
farms and utilities.
If they decide to drop the lake
level, it will be sometime next April.
The board approved $5.1 million in
contracts for a filter marsh and the
expansion of a storm-water treat-
ment area both north of Lake
Okeechobee.
"Officials have known about the
problems with the lake for
decades," stated Mr. Garrels. "Now
is the time to take action, not next
April. We're in dire trouble now.
They've been putting off dealing
with the ever-growing problems
and passing them along through
the years. Something must be done
about the lake now, while we still
can."


'This land is your land,' says SFWMD


The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is the steward for
approximately 375,000 acres of
public land. Over the years, the
agency has taken great strides to
expand public recreational use
opportunities on land purchased
with public dollars and it keeps
getting better.
As the agency continues its
aggressive pace to acquire land for
Everglades restoration and other
ecosystem restoration and water
resource projects, it is taking proac-
tive efforts to enhance and expand
its recreational use program
throughout its 16-county jurisdic-
tion.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is hosting a series
of workshops to gather public feed-
back and comments on rules for
the agency's recreational use pro-
gram. From hiking, fishing, camp-
ing, bird-watching, horseback rid-
ing, nature study, cycling, hunting.
and more, the workshops will pro-
vide citizens the opportunity to tell
the District what recreational fea-
tures they would like to see on Dis-
trict-managed public lands while
protecting natural resources and
intended land use priorities. The

Nelson requests new probe of reporter's murder


WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S.
Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) has
requested that Peru's President
Alejandro Toledo reopen an
investigation into the death of a
Florida newspaper reporter
murdered on the job near a
Peruvian jungle town more than
15 years ago.
The case was shrouded in
secrecy until recently when pub-
lished reports said new evidence
implicated several men linked to
the drug trade in the death of
Tampa Tribune reporter Todd
Smith. Smith, 28, was tortured
and strangled to death while
working on a story about Peru's
coca-region.
Spurred by the new revela-
tions, Nelson on Wednesday for-
mally requested another investi-
gation into Smith's murder. The
request came during an after-
noon telephone call to Peru's
ambassador to the U.S., Eduar-
do Ferrero, who told Nelson
he'd "put all (his) effort into
this."
Nelson described the ambas-
sador's response as encourag-
ing. "I'm hopeful that justice in
this case can finally be served,"
said Nelson, of Florida, who's a
member of the Senate's Foreign
Relations panel. "Todd's parents
and two sisters deserve no less."
In January, Nelson traveled to
Peru and established a relation-
ship with Toledo and Ferrero,
which he hopes will help push
through his request for opening
a new murder probe.
At the time of Smith's death
in 1989, Peruvian officials were
quick to say it was the work of
the Shining Path, a Maoist insur-


gent group linked to protecting
coca-plant cultivators. Four
years afterward, a secret count-
er-terrorism trial resulted in a
Shining Path guerrilla receiving
30 years in prison in connection
with the murder. He was the
only person ever tried, and
received early release.
Little else was known until
records of the secret trial
emerged last December, includ-
ing an intelligence report identi-
fying a businessman who found-
ed a Peru airline as one of the
masterminds behind Smith's
killing. The court records were
obtained by a Lima-based insti-
tute for a free society.
According to an intelligence
report in those records, the guer-
rillas who tortured and strangled
Smith were working for the
Peruvian businessman identi-
fied in published accounts as
Fernando Zevallos and two
others allegedly involved in the
drug trade. Zevallos, labeled a
Peruvian cocaine kingpin last
year by the Bush Administration,
was never charged in the case.
This is not the first time Nel-
son has sought to come to the
aid of an American killed in
another country. He began
working several years .ago to
resolve the fate of a Jacksonville
Navy pilot, Scott Speicher, who
was shot down in the first Gulf
War. Nelson's efforts spurred the
creation of a special military unit
to search for him in Iraq. A
report is due out soon.
(Editor's note: The following
is Senator's Nelson transcribed
speech to the Senate floor.)
May 11, 2005, 6:30 p.m.


Mr. President, just today I ini-
tiated an effort to push Peruvian
President Alejandro Toledo to
reopen an investigation into the
brutal torture-murder of a young
journalist from my state.
The 28-year-old reporter,
Todd Smith, was found dead 15
years ago, his body discovered
in Peru's violent coca-producing
region. This son of a Florida
appellate judge worked for The
Tampa Tribune, and was investi-
gating the drug traffic in the
northern Peruvian jungle.
Officials in Peru were quick
to say the murder was the work
of the Shining Path a Maoist
insurgent group said to be
involved in protecting cultivators
of the coca plant. Specifically,
Peru's Interior Ministry said
Todd had been captured by
Maoist rebels and possibly sold
to drug traffickers for $30,000.
Four years later, a secret
counter-terrorism trial in Peru
resulted in a Shining Path guer-
rilla being sentenced to 30 years
in prison for taking part'in the
murder. He was the only person
ever tried for the crime and
even he reportedly has received
an early release.
Little else was known. Now,
however, the transcript of that
secret 1993 trial has emerged,
including an intelligence report
that identifies a businessman
who founded a Peru airline as
one of the masterminds behind
Todd's killing. The complete
court file was obtained by a
Lima-based institute for a free
press and society.
According to one of several
detailed intelligence reports in


the trial transcript, the guerrillas
who tortured and strangled Todd
were working for Peru business-
man Fernando Zevallos, and two
others allegedly involved in the
drug trade.
But Zevallos labeled a
Peruvian cocaine kingpin last
year by the Bush Administration
- was never charged in the case.
The New York Times quotes
American and Peruvian authori-
ties as saying he has evaded jus-
tice for so long by bribing court
officials and killing witnesses.
Mr. President, it's been over
15 years since a son of Florida
and a member of the Fourth
Estate was tortured and stran-
gled to death in the jungles of
Peru and clearly, justice has yet
to be served.
In January, I went to Peru.
And there, I established a work-
ing relationship with President
Toledo and was joined by
Ambassador Ferrero, Peru's
ambassador to the United
States.
Today through proper diplo-
matic channels I made a for-
mal request that President Tole-
do immediately reopen the
investigation into Todd Smith's
death; and, that his government
cooperate fully with our State
Department and FBI.
And Ambassador Ferrero told
me he "would put all his effort
into this."
Mr. President, I hope my Sen-
ate colleagues will join me in
demanding that justice finally be
served in this case. Todd's family
deserves no less.

Attorney general reaches agreement in flu case


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist announced
that his office has reached an
agreement with Broward Coun-
ty-based ASAP Meds, Inc., doing
business as Meds-Stat, relating
to allegations that the company
committed price gouging on flu
vaccinations during last year's
vaccination shortage. Under the
agreement, the company will
refrain from further flu vaccine
, sales and will provide more than
$220,000 in reparation for its
activities.
In October 2004, the Attorney
General's Office sued Meds-Stat
for deceptive and unfair trade
practices over the pricing of flu


vaccines. The company was sell-
ing vials of flu vaccine, which
contained 10 doses per vial, for
$900 when the normal price
range was $63-$85 per vial. This
amounted to a markup of more
than 900 percent per vial. The
suit included both a request for
an injunction that would prevent
Meds-Stat from selling vaccines
at unconscionable prices and a
request for damages and penal-
ties as allowed by law.
A court order was entered
against Meds-Stat shortly after
the lawsuit was filed preventing
the company from buying or
selling any more flu vaccines.
The company-was also required


to surrender the remaining vac-
cines, which were made avail-
able to the public free of charge.
"Price gouging is the worst
example of taking advantage of
those in situations of great
need," said Crist. "There is no
excuse for anyone to capitalize
on the unfortunate situation
caused by the vaccine shortage,
and this agreement will prevent
the company from participating
in such activities in the future."
Under the agreement, Meds-
Stat must permanently refrain
from selling flu vaccine. Meds-
Stat also agreed that it will
refrain from intentionally mak-
ing false statements to con-


sumers relating to how much of
a given drug is in stock, how
quickly it is being sold and how
long the current supply will last.
In addition, the company will
provide $150,000 for the Teen
Empowerment Program, affiliat-
ed with the University Area
Community Development Cor-
poration, Inc. This program pro-
vides job training, employability
skills, cultural, recreational and
educational activities to at-risk
youth in the Tampa-Hillsbor-
ough area. Meds-Stat will also
submit more than $71,000 to be
used to assist pharmacies that
were affected by Meds-Stat's
activities.


Land acquisition approved for Everglades restoration


The South Florida Water Man-
agement District continues its
aggressive land acquisition pace
for Everglades restoration. The
agency's Governing Board
unanimously authorized the
acquisition of approximately
12,000 acres in Martin County at
its appraised value of $168 mil-
lion ($14,000 per acre). In sup-
port of shared ecosystem
restoration goals, Martin County
Commissioners presented the
Governing Board with a check
for $26.8 million toward the pur-
chase price.
Recreational uses and a park
are being considered by the Dis-
trict and county on open areas of
the property.
"Our shared commitment
with our local partners to restore
and revitalize the greater Ever-
glades ecosystem, which
includes the St. Lucie Estuary
and Indian River Lagoon, is
demonstrated with this gener-
ous check from Martin County,"
said Governing Board Member
Lennart E. Lindahl. "I commend
and thank Martin County for
contributing toward this signifi-
cant acquisition."
The C-44 (St. Lucie Canal)


Reservoir/Storm-water Treat-
ment Area land acquisition -
estimated for completion by the
end of 2009 is one of eight
major restoration projects to be.
completed more than a decade
ahead of schedule under the
Acceler8 initiative.
"As a component of the $8
billion federal-state Comprehen-
sive Everglades Restoration
Plan's Indian River Lagoon
South Restoration Project, the C-
44 (St. Lucie Canal)
Reservoir/STA project will
improve water quality and
reduce storm-water flow to the
St. Lucie Estuary and Indian
River Lagoon, revitalizing fish
and oyster habitats by maintain-
ing desirable salinity levels," said
Ken Ammon, South Florida
Water Management District
executive in charge of the Accel-
er8 program.
An 11-to-12-foot-deep above-
ground reservoir will be con-
structed that will provide addi-
tional water storage for the C-44
basin. The project ,also includes
storm-water treatment areas to
capture and clean excess
stormwater runoff before it
enters the St. Lucie Canal and,


ultimately, the St. Lucie Estuary
and Indian River Lagoon,
improving the overall health of
the ecosystem. The project
includes an option for expan-
sion of an additional reservoir
that would be capable of-re-duc-
ing the impact-eftake Okee-
chobee regulatory releases to
th'e estuary.
The 12,000-acre property has
these advantages for the project:
-- Ability to increase water
quality treatment flexibility.
Ability to design the storm-
water treatment areas to South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict standards using the pre-
ferred emergent vegetation tech-
nology.
Increased design flexibility
in mitigating off-site seepage
impacts.


Increased operational flexi-
bility.
The project allows for a
conservative design with 3,500
to 4,000 acres of reservoir and
7,000 to 8,000 acres of storm-
.water treatment areas.
The project is located with-
in 1,000 feet of the main water
source the C-44 Canal (St.
Lucie Canal).
Provided for a recreational
component to be managed by
Martin County.
Funding for the land will be
shared by the state, local govern-
ments and South Florida Water
Management District funds.
The project allows all
storm-water treatment areas to
be situated on the same proper-
ty, increasing operational effi-
ciency.

White footed ants marching our way '


As temperatures start to rise,
homeowners may start to see
increased numbers of critters start-
ing to invade indoors spaces. One
of the most difficult to control
household pests is the White Foot-
ed Ant, a relatively new invader that
is now suspected to be a problem
in our area.
The bad news is that this
Indonesian import has recently
been found in nearly half of Flori-
da's counties. The good news is
that recent UF research has devel-
oped a new liquid bait that will
soon be available, just in time to
battle an expected increase in activ-
ity of this challenging insect pest.
This small black ant received
much attention a couple of years
ago. A native of Southeast Asia, the
White-Footed Ant (WFA) was
found in a Homestead plant nurs-
ery in 1986. Local pest control
companies in our area have seen
them in Okeechobee. This year,
there are now reports of Florida
infestations, in the Jacksonville
area. These pests have also spread
from Florida to Columbia, SC,
Baton Rouge, LA, Savannah, GA,


Two small Florida military installations set to close


MIAMI Two small military
installations that employ just
over 200 people are the only
ones in Florida on the Pentagon's
list released Friday of domestic
bases scheduled for closure,
according to a copy of the list
provided to members of Con-
gress.
All of the major military bases
in Florida will remain open,
although some would undergo
realignment that would produce
a net loss of military and civilian
jobs at some bases. In total, how-
ever, the state will gain more
than 2,700 personnel at the 13
bases affected.
The Pentagon list, provided by


Florida congressional officials to
The Associated Press, shows that
two installations are proposed
for closure: the Defense Finance
and Accounting Services in
Orlando, employing 209 people,
and the 12-employee Naval
Reserve Center in St. Petersburg.
U.S. Rep. Tom Feeney, R-
Oviedo, said he was working
with Rep. Ric Keller, the Orlando
Republican whose district
includes the accounting center,
to minimize any negative effects
if it is eventually closed. The
accounting center employs nine
military personnel and 200 civil-
ians.
"He said that it was not a huge


shock. It was something we were
worried about," Feeney said.
The biggest Florida losses in
terms of jobs would occur in a
realignment of the Naval Air Sta-
tion in Pensacola, which would
see a net reduction of 1,579 mili-
tary, civilian and contractor per-
sonnel. Patrick Air Force near
Cape Canaveral would lose 195
personnel under the realignment
and Tyndall Air Force Base in
Panama City would lose 56,
according to the Pentagon pro-
posal.
The biggest gains would be at
Eglin Air Force Base in Florida's
Panhandle, where 2,218 new
personnel would be added, and


at the Naval Air Station in Jack-
sonville, with 2,025 new person-
nel. The Naval Station at Mayport
would gain 410 military and cili-
vian personnel.
Precise details of the gains
and realignments affecting Flori-
da were not immediately avail-
able.
Defense Secretary Donald
Rumsfeld is expected to formally
release the list later Friday. The
2005 BRAC Commission will
then have nearly four months to
present a final version to Presi-
dent Bush and Congress, which
must approve or reject it in its
entirety.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


and Paradise Island, Bahamas.
White footed ants do not bite,
sting or cause any structural dam-
age to properties. They are very
small, less that 1/8 inch long, and
have light colored legs. They do not
move around like Crazy ants, and
are smaller than Argentine ants,
both of which have dark legs.
They seem to appear from
nowhere in large numbers in
kitchens and bathrooms causing
alarm to homeowners. They are
strongly attracted to sugary food
sources, and will often protect sap-
sucking insects like aphids and
scales that secrete honeydew.
University of Florida student
John Warner has conducted
research on the bait preferences of
these insects. Warner also operates
Shalom Pest Control in Boca Raton,
and reports he has received more
calls from new customers about
WFA problems this year than in the
past few years.
Homeowners who see trails of
small black ants often coming from
trees and shrubs and trailing up
and down the sides of their homes
should not wait to take action.


Warner warns WFA problems get
worse as the weather warms,
increasing the high populations of
this amazing ant.
Nests tend to be found outside
more than inside. Indoors they nest
in spaces between walls and in
attics. Outdoor nests may be found:
In tree holes or on the underside of
leaves, on bushes, under palm
fronds and old leaf boots, in loose
mulch, under debris such as news-
'paper, fallen coconuts, scrap
wood, etc. in leaf-litter on the
ground and in rain gutters.
Actions that homeowners can
take include cutting trees and
shrubs away from their homes,
and using lots of liquid ant bait
(always maintain a sufficient, fresh
supply).
Warner determined their
favorite foods sources and
matched them with various insecti-
cides. His work has resulted in a
new liquid bait for WFA called
NecDewtm, which has been
patented by the University of Flori-
da, and will soon be released.
Insecticidal sprays directed
against other sap-sucking insects


that produce the honeydew can
also help. In cases of active ant
trails in living areas, some tempo-
rary relief can result from using
other contact sprays, but this kind
of approach will rarely kill the
colony. A more comprehensive
approach will be needed.
Before using any ant killers
inside, be sure it is LABELED for
INDOOR use. Always be sure to fol-
low the label directions when using
insecticides.
Homeowners might not wish to
tackle the difficult task of dealing
with WFA. Instead, consider con-
tacting local pest control compa-
nies. Consumers with WFA prob-
lems should ask around for a pest
control company with a proven
track record in controlling this ant.
Warner reports that many of his
new customers had used other
companies that were not able to
control the WFA infestation. He
suggests that homeowners
become more informed about this
ant before calling a pest control
company.

David Goodlett to chair Health Board


WEST PALM BEACH On
May 11, the Health Care District
Board nominated David Goodlett
as Board Chairman. David
Goodlett is Vice President of Gov-
ernment and Community Rela-
tions for the Sugar Cane Growers
Cooperative of Florida.
"I appreciate the confidence
the District Board expressed by
selecting- me as Chairman," says
David Goodlett. "I look forward to
working with the Health Care Dis-
trict as it focuses on expanding
coverage for the uninsured,
enhancing access to health care in
western Palm Beach County, and
ensuring availability of health care
services throughout the county."
Mr. Goodlett was appointed by
Governor Bush in 2000 to serve on
the Health Care District's Govern-
ing Board. Since that time, he has
worked with the Board to advance
countless solutions to meet the


health care needs of Palm Beach
County's residents. In addition to
assisting Health Care District staff
in negotiations with Province
Healthcare Corporation to repur-
chase Glades
General Hospi-
tal in 2003, Mr.
Goodlett estab-
lished a health
care grant pro-
gram for organ-
izations serving
the Glades
community.
Now in its sec- David
ond year, the Goodlett
grant program,
under the leadership of the West-
ern County Health Advisory Com-
mittee, awarded 12 grants in 2004
totaling $176,000. The Committee
is currently reviewing proposals
for 2005 grant awards.
Mr. Goodlett replaces Randee


S. Schatz who has chaired the Dis-
trict Board since 2002. Other
board officers include Dr. Stanley
Pierce, Vice-Chairman, and Rep-
resentative Irving Slosberg, Secre-
tary.
About the Health Care District:
The Health Care District has
broad health care experience in
Palm Beach County. Funded by ad
valorem taxes, the Health Care
District is responsible for the care
of trauma patients from the point
of injury to rehabilitation. The Dis-
trict funds two Level II trauma
centers and operates Trauma
Hawk for aeromedical transports
in cooperation with 18 other

tions.
As a leader in children's health,
the District operates 160 school
health clinics and employs 200
school nurses who help to ensure
that 165,000 students are healthy


and ready to learn. Additionally,
our children's health program
includes 48 behavioral health pro-
fessionals who work in elemen-
tary schools to address behavioral
and emotional issues for students.
The District is also responsible for
a 198-bed nursing home for resi-
dents who require logg-term
skilled nursing care that they can-
not receive at other nursing home
facilities.
A core responsibility for the

through a network of physicians,
hospitals, pharmacies, and ancil-
lary health care providers. The
Health Care District currently
operates an HMO licensed in the
