a 16510 00017 7


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
SOUTH BAY When the coun-
ty's water utilities department
representatives made a presenta-
tion updating the community on
the progress of the Lake Region
Water Treatment Plant recently,
the biggest news of the night was
the fact that the plant will cost
substantially more than previous-
ly thought to construct.
In the early stages of the plan-
ning and design of the plant,


county officials pegged a $35 mil-
lion figure as the approximate
cost of construction for the nec-
essary facility. Due to rises in the
cost of construction, as well as
other factors contributing, that
number is now just a few hun-
dred thousand dollars short of
$50 million.
While grant funding for the
project has considerably offset
the total burden of cost for the tri-
cities, they remain responsible
for paying the remaining portion.


The focus of discussion June 27
at a tri-cities meeting, was in cov-
ering that burden.
The idea behind the regional
water plant came several years
ago, when, frustrated by the high
levels of carcinogens in the area
water and the contaminants that
made the water darker, the three
cities partnered with the county
to build a state-of-the-art reverse.

nate the issues.

Independence Day: Fourth on the Muck
zO l


SaStaff photos/Jose Zaragoza'
The American flag waved high atop the dike at Pahokee on Monday while scores of people
came to the placeto enjoy the Fourth on the Muck festival, which concluded with a festive
display of fireworks over the lake. The festival was organized by Red Fun Entertainment,
with the city as Its co-host and a number of local businesses and residents as sponsors.


Booths and stands of all kinds made sure that the
festival goers in Pahokee on Monday didn't go
without proper nourishment and plenty of fun.


The crowds filed in throughout the day at the festi-
val, meeting the hot sun head-on as they had fun at
the site, peering over at the lake as they walked.


Somewhere along the Atlantic, this
pirate made a wrong turn and
somehow made it to Pahokee just
in time for the Fourth on the Muck
festival. All wasn't lost though. He
was lucky enough to be carrying a
treasure chest filled with curious
trinkets that he offered to visitors at
the festival. His earnings made
sure he got back home, though not
on that marooned ship. A plane is
no way for a pirate to fly, the poor
pirate thought.


agreement between the entities
was reached, the county made
the regional water plant its num-
ber one legislative priority and
provided an initial pledge of fund-
ing to begin the process. The
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District was involved also
and committed grant funding of
its own.
Since then, the partnership
has obtained $26 million through
a number of sources, including
Palm Beach County itself, the


South Florida Water Manage-
ment District, the Environmental
Protection Agency and the State
of Florida. The figure represents
almost enough funding to have
covered the project in its entirety
before the cost of the project
increased.
According to officials with the
county's water utilities depart-
ment, the extra cost is the result
of unforeseen variables in the

appoints



Morris chief


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
SOUTH BAY At-a special
meeting of the city, the city
commission interviewed and
selected Michael Morris to the
chief of police position. Chief
Morris has for the last several
months assumed the position
of interim chief,
After careful consideration,
the city commission selected
Mr. Morris at the June 30 meet-
ing, awarding him the job
through 'a majority decision,
with only Commissioner
Shirley Walker-1 hrner casting a
dissenting vote.
Following the decision, the


mayor will be working with Mr.
Morris in drafting a contract for
his services, a move expected
to happen quickly. Afterward,
Mr. Morris will assume his new
title.
Mr. Morris, a resident of Lox-
ahatchee, beat out a number of
candidates throughout South
Florida who were vying for the
job of chief.
Regarding the appointment,
Mr. Morris said, "I'm excited.
I'm glad that it's finally over."
Mr. Morris said he is pre-
pared for his new role and-
looks forward to it.

Residents take



back park


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
PAHOKEE Weeks ago, a
public angered that their park
had been taken over by loud
and rowdy groups of adults
addressed the problem and
asked for help from the city.
They wanted their park back,
and their peace at the same
time.
Now, that same public has
returned to claim victory and
their pledge toward continued
progress at the park and the
issues facing Pahokee in gener-
al, its youth and its elders.
A group of concerned citi-
zens and leaders, together with


an approach by the city itself,
aims to address the social prob-
lems facing the community
and alleviate the crowds of
people that gather at Martin
Luther King Park to drink and
loiter.
Cornesha Dukes was one of
those community members
who decided to take a charge
on the issue. Working for the
Beacon Center, Ms. Dukes
decided to help in organizing a
committee that, with the help
of the community, could focus
its energy on taking back the
streets of Pahokee.

It's a fond farewell


to Helen Franke


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE Glades resi-
dents and friends to Dr. Helen
Franke, longtime provost at Palm
Beach Community College
Glades Campus, paid a special
fond farewell to her in a manner
and style unique to Dr. Franke.
There they sat, a roomful of
local leaders and dignitaries, as
well as staff from Palm Beach
Community College, all wearing
oversized and sequined-lined
glasses of strange colors in
honor of Dr. Franke known to
wear a kooky pair of eyeglasses
or two herself.
And she felt right at home.
Dr. Franke is making a transi-
tion within Palm Beach Commu-
nity College and will be heading
to the coast after 16 years of serv-
ice to the Glades. For her work in


the area, her co-workers and
community supporters joined
Wednesday June 29 at the Dolly
Hand Cultural Arts Theater in
recognition of her efforts.
Though references to Dr.
Franke's unselfish and motivated
nature were on full display, so
were a few other references -
including Dr. Franke's penchant
for nice wardrobes and curious
mannerisms. Homer Hand and
Alice Thompson mentioned Dr.
Franke's habit in pinches of
scribbling notes on her hands
and down the side of her arms.
"Undoubtedly the first Palm
Pilot," remarked Mr. Hand.
Dr. Franke's love for choco-
late made an appearance or two,
as well. Apparently, all you really
need if you want to be graced

Migrant workers face health and safety hazards


WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -
Down on the farm, it can be
downright dangerous especial-
ly for thousands of Florida
migrant farm workers who may
not be familiar with rules and reg-
ulations designed to ensure their
safety on the job. But help is on
the way, thanks to a new Universi-
ty of Florida farm safety-training
program aimed at the state's
200,000 migrant farm workers.
"What these workers don't
know about agriculture, it seems,
can truly hurt them," said Cesar
Asuaje, an extension agent with
UF's Institute of Food and Agricul-
tural Sciences. "In recent years,
Hispanic workers have accounted
for a growing number of injuries
and fatalities in agriculture and
related industries such as land-
scaping."
He said immigrants from Mexi-
co and other countries in the trop-
ics make up the majority of Flori-
da's seasonal agricultural
workers, and some have received
little instruction in farm safety.
"As a result, injuries and fatali-
ties among Hispanic workers are
increasing, and the language bar-
rier is one reason for that," Mr.
Asuaje said. "In a lot of cases,
people are hurt because they can-
not read signs or safety instruc-
tions, and some don't want to let
on that they don't understand."
Working out of UF's extension
office in West Palm Beach, Asuaje
is offering farm safety training in
11 counties, and the training pro-
gram is being expanded to meet a
growing demand from the state's
Hispanic population. He goes to
citrus groves, sugarcane fields,
tomato farms and other agricul-
' iral enterprises throughout
South Florida, teaching a one-day,
oii-the- job training course to
migrant workers. The training,
which is presented in Spanish,
covers topics ranging from oper-
ating tractors and other heavy
equipment to handling pesticides
and avoiding back injuries.
The program is currently being
offered in Broward, Collier,
H.endry, Hillsborough, Manatee,
Martin, Miami-Dade, Orange,
Palm Beach, Pinellas and St. Lucie
counties.
Mr. Asuaje said the most
recent statistics from the U.S.
Occupational Safety and Health
Administration (OSHA) indicate
fatal injuries among Hispanic
workers on the farm rose more
than 18 percent while nonfatal
injuries rose by. 33 percent
between 1999-2003.
In the landscaping industry -

Cesar Asuaje, an extension agent with the University of Florida's Institute of Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences, has launched a new program to educate migrant farm workers about all
aspects of farm.safety. In recent years, these workers have accounted for a growing num-
ber of injuries and fatalities in agriculture and related fields.


a sector of Florida agriculture that
employs large numbers immi-
grant workers nonfatal injuries
increased by 63 percent over the
same period.
"It's a trend you see every-
where, particularly in Florida,"
said Luis Santiago, director of
OSHA in the Fort Lauderdale area.
"They're doing work that others
won't do and that usually
means dangerous work."
For example, when you can't
read instructions on heavy equip-
ment, just about any work can
become dangerous, Mr. Santiago
said. He cited recent deaths
among workers using heavy-duty
industrial lawnmowers in land-
scaping operations.in South Flori-
da residential areas. Workers
unfamiliar with warnings often
use them on steep slopes near
canals and sometimes tumble
in and get pinned under the
mower.
Santiago said federal regula-
tions require safety training for
every worker. While some
employers usually show a Span-
ish- language video, that's no
guarantee that every migrant
worker will receive effective train-
ing.


"Most growers are honest, but
some don't train workers
because they want to avoid
claims against them if something
goes wrong," Mr. Santiago said.
"For example, a lot of these work-
ers have never seen a respirator
before working here. If they're
spraying pesticide, they might not
know that a respirator is required
for protection."
While video training materials
may help, Mr. Asuaje said it's bet-
ter to have someone teaching in
person. In addition to training
workers at farms around the
state, he organized the Hispanic
Health and Safety Fair in Home-
stead, Fla. on June 4, and he is
planning a similar program in
Kissimmee on August 20. More
than 1,000 migrant farm workers
are expected to attend.
The popularity of the farm
safety program has led Mr. Asuaje
to begin offering other Spanish-
language classes. His office is one
of the few places where Florida
residents can take Spanish- lan-
guage classes for a license to
apply pesticides something
that can give a new landscaping
company a leg up on competitors
who are not licensed to apply


pest-control products to lawns
and shrubs.
Asuaje said the pesticide train-
ing class is popular among immi-
grants who started as landscape
workers and then opened their
own landscaping businesses.
The test for the license is in
English, and applicants need
some basic reading skills in Eng-
lish to pass the examination, but
instruction in Spanish can make a
difference in how well the stu-
dents understand basic concepts,
he said.
"We start with Spanish and
include more and more English
as the class goes along," he said.
"If someone has a problem
understanding something, we
can work it out in Spanish, which
is easier."
Mr. Asuaje said workers with
acceptable reading skills seem to
benefit most, while those who
have lower reading skills will
begin to learn the process for pes-
ticide certification.
With the growing number of
Spanish- speaking people in Flori-
da, Mr. Asuaje says he has only
begun to scratch the surface in
the demand for instruction in
farm safety and farming.


Corps begins pulse releases from Lake Okeechobee


JACKSONVILLE, FLA-The
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
(Corps) began Level three pulse
release from Lake Okeechobee
to the St. Lucie Canal and
Caloosahatchee River on Tues-
day, June 28.
However, if heavy rains con-
tinue and Lake Okeechobee con-
tinue to rise, the Corps will possi-
bly have to initiate Zone C
regulatory release.
Pulse release are designed to
mimic nature and provide dis-
charges from the lake to the estu-
aries via the St. Lucie Canal to the
east, and the Caloosahatchee
River to the west.
They attempt to strike a bal-
ance between the lake's littoral
zone and the estuaries. In ten
days, a Level one pulse release
to the Caloosahatchee River can
lower the lake 0.07 ft. (average of
1,600 cfs/day), a level two can
lower it by 0.10 ft. (average of 2,
300 cfs/day), and a level three by


0.13 ft. (average of 3,000
cfs/day). In ten days, a level one
pulse release to the St. Lucie
Canal can lower the lake 0.03 ft.
(average of 730 cfs/day), a level
two lower it by 0.04 ft. (average
of 950 cfs/day), and a level three
byO.05 ft. (average of 1,170
cfs/day)
Zone C regulatory releases are
constant each day unlike a pulse
release, which varies each day.
Zone C release may be last
longer than the 10- day pulse
release, but for comparison, over
a 10 day period, a Zone C release
to the Caloosahatchee River can
lower the lake 0.20 ft. (average of
4,500 cfs/day), and a Zone C
release to the St.. Lucie Canal can
lower the lake 0.11 ft. (average of
2,500 cfs/day). these releases
could continue until pulse
release can be resumed provided
rainfall and inflow do not contin-
ue to cause Lake Okeechobee to
rise. Discharges are adjusted to


accommodate local runoff and
charges in the tidal cycle.
Last Friday's lake level was
15.53 feet, which is 1.30 feet
higher then the average for this


time of the year (based on the
period from 1992-2000), and in
Zone D of the WSE (Water Sup-
ply/ Environment) regulation
schedule.

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.
Standing water
Can the city manager of Pahokee tell us what the progress is
on the Department of Transportation project to eliminate the
swimming pool in front of our homes every time it rains? It's a
breeding ground for mosquitoes and frogs. West Nile Virus is
out there and it's dangerous. I have witnessed two accidents
caused by standing water on Vacant Park Road already. Is it
going to take someone getting killed to solve this problem?
Not what I would do
About a month ago I was in Belle Glade to enjoy your won-
derful fishing. I have traveled there often and have always
enjoyed the city. However, on this occasion I stopped by the
Belle Glade Police Department to ask directions to a certain
area. As soon as I walked into the lobby, there stood a man
screaming at the top of his lungs at one of his officers. There
were other officers standing around as well as many civilians.
Now I retired from a police department back in Illinois. I was a
lieutenant for the last ten years on the job. You do not treat peo-
ple like that. Especially in front of other officers and your citi-
zens. Not if you want to actually keep any officers there. If I had
been the poor officer on the receiving end of his abuse, I would
have walked out right there.
Police
This is in regards to the Speakout about the Belle Glade PD.
It is true, there are several officers that are leaving. There are
times when only two officers.are on a shift, and that is ridicu-
lous. The chief needs to look within himself, and see what it is
that he is doing wrong. It is not always the officers that are
wrong. It is him and his attitude, and the way he treats those
officers. I would like to thank the officers of the Belle Glade PD.
They do a good job every day. And I'm sorry for what you have
to deal with. We need a chief who will treat them with respect,
and will in turn be treated respect.
New flag needed
I am a citizen of Pahokee, and I have been trying to get this
resolved by the Post Office here in Pahokee, but they don't
seem to care about the whole thing. It's absolutely a shame
what they do to the American Flag. It is hanging in front of the
Post Office like it has been, since the hurricanes now, and if you
haven't seen it, it's a rag! It's a rag, hanging there in front of the
U.S. Postal Service office. At the U.S. Post Office! Can someone
find out how to get that one replaced, maybe if I buy one, will
they hang it up there?

Keep it up
Thank you Commissioner Garrett for looking out for our
money, I appreciate you and all that you do; and the City Man-
ager, Mr. Tate, has a lot nerve saying you didn't discuss it with
him, before you sent it off. You are his boss, and he needs to
realize that. If you have a concern, we elect you to look after us,
and look after those concerns, and we appreciate what you are
doing. Keep it up! And for those that reprimanded you, what do
you have to hide? What are you so scared of? If there is not
something there that's wrong, they shouldn't have a problem
with you sending it off. -
Better programs needed
Why is it that the city of Belle Glade doesn't have some type
of recreation for children during the summer? I see in the paper
about Pahokee's recreation program all the time. I see their
buses going to West Palm taking the kids to do things. The City
of Belle Glade has a Parks and Recreation.director. We also
have a part-time Parks and Rec specialist that was provided by
the county. Yet, no activities for the kids. Why? What are you
doing for our kids? If you want people to move out here and
stay out here, you need to do something for our kids. You need
to get on it.


Community Profile: Richard Harris


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Q: What is your name?
A: James Richard Harris. Love
to go by Richard.
Q: Where were you bom?
A: Sebring, Florida. I came as a
baby. My mother was very young
at the time I was born. My grand-
mother actually raised me. My
mother lived, for the most part, in
Ft. Lauderdale. I stayed over here
with my grandmother most of the
time and went to school, in Belle
Glade. I grew up here, graduated
and went off to college.
Q:Whatdoyou do?
A: I got the title for probably
what I was doing already, I'm com-
munity development manager.
How we got into this, Mr. Smith
and I were talking and he said,
"You're really not going to like the
nuts and bolts stuff." He was right.
Not that I didn't like it, but structur-
ing myself after all those years of
being able to move like I wanted
to, it was an adjustment. Interest-
ingly enough, they're amazed at
how well I fit right in. I am in
charge of permitting, any develop-
ments coming into the city, and
working with Dr. Orman to make
sure that we stay on top of that. We
have two major developments in
the planning stages. One is on
hold, Dominion Development, the
other we're working on is the cot-
tage and the depot. After that, my
favorite, the marina.
Q:Why?
A: It's a challenge. It really is, it's
a challenge. Some of it I've been
doing in sense all along. I really
want to see as a private citizen, this
area grow and develop. It's kind of
a natural fit for me. It's a lot of hard
work, don't misunderstand me,
but then it's not as hard as I antici-
pated in terms of me grasping
what was going on. I'm familiar
with a lot of the things I have to
deal with every day. I really think
this can be the premier communi-
ty in Palm Beach County, not just
western Palm Beach County, but
Palm Beach County. It really can.
You've got an opportunity here to
have a mixture of moderate, mid-
dle income and upscale. If you get
the right mix, this can be a para-
dise for everybody. What I see is
going to be the biggest, not prob-
lem, but biggest worry if you want
to call it a worry, is being able to
control the explosive growth that's
coming. It's coming.
Q: Can you describeyourself?
A: Man who wears many hats.
All of my life has been in prepar-
ing. I've been very fortunate
because when you can shift gears
at this age and start a new career,
quote unquote, and not miss a
step and stay in stride I think is
phenomenal. I'm able to adjust.
and adapt very easily. The finance
lady tickles me, she says she wants
to take some of my energy pills. I


said I don't take
any. I'm very
extroverted.
I've learned in
this position, I
do a lot more
listening and a
lot less talking
than before.
Obviously, I
need to know Richard
what I'm talk- Harris
ing about
before I open my mouth. I'm very
concerned not just about myself
but about other human beings as
well.
Q:Whatareyouafraidof?
A: Nothing really scares me, the
only thing that would probably
scare me or come close to scaring
me is leaving this earth without
having left, not just a mark, but
something of significance. "Oh, he
accomplished something." From a
personal standpoint, I've been
around the world, I've seen and
done it all. At this point in the
stage, now it's about what kind of
a legacy I'm going to leave. How
can I help those coming behind
me? I think the way you do that
and the way I plan to do that is to
be of service. That's where I am.
(Q: That also means you're driven,
have you always been that way?)
Yes. Yes I am. Always. Probably
since I was teenager. My grandfa-
ther was a contractor, labor con-
tractor and We used to travel a lot. I
had the good fortune to learn to
read early. That was a big thing. I
would read the maps, which
means that I would sit up front
with him. I felt so good as a little
kid telling these grown folk which
roads to take. Some of them
would dispute. When I'reflect on
that, thinking about how young I
was, a scripture in the Bible says,
"And the youth shall lead them."
That's exactly what it was. It was
fascinating.
(Q: Had you ever aspired to be
anything else than what you are
today?) Obviously I wanted to be a
contractor at one point because of
my grandfather, he and I were very
close. Believe it or not, I also want-
ed to be a farmer. Even though I
admired what my grandfather did,
he wasn't at the top and I wanted
to be at the top. The top was the
guy who owned it. I wanted to be
the one who actually owned the
farms. Beyond that, at one point, I
admired my high school principal,
at the time I didn't. I don't think
none of us did. I didn't want to be a
principal until after I got up in age.
Early on, I always liked debat-
ing. I was on the debating team in
high school and then in college. I
always liked debating and arguing
and winning my points. Obviously
then a lawyer. But I was not stu-
dious to the point that it required
the discipline necessary to be pre-
pared to go to law school and do it.


When I had the opportunity to do
it, then I didn't follow through. I
had an opportunity early on, but I
didn't follow through. I got caught
up in the entertainment stuff and
other stuff.
Q: What is your favorite song?
A: Wow. That's heavy. Probably
the one, I don't know if it's my
favorite, but I listen to it a lot
because it's so relevant, "What's
Going On," Marvin Gaye. All these
years later, I was fortunate enough
to work for him, all these years
later, as a matter of fact I was play-
ing it yesterday, and it's amazing
how today, if you put that song on
the radio, you don't know if he's
talking about then, you think it's
now.
(Q: You worked for him?) Yes,
as press secretary, promotional
director, road manager. It was
interesting, very fascinating time in
my life. I was promoting concerts
and scheduled some concerts with
him, he came to Florida, did a cou-
ple of dates.
We were actually in the Diplo-
mat Hotel in Hollywood and we
stayed up all night, just talking,
talking, talking. He was a very fas-
cinating individual. That morning,
the sun was coming up over the
ocean and it was beautiful, the
sunrise over the Atlantic. One thing
led to another, he said, "I want you
to think about something, I'd like
you to come work for me." I talked
to family and friends, they said,
"You got a chance to work with
- Marvin Gaye, are you crazy?"
When he got ready to leave at
the airport, he said call Stephen
and let him know your decision.
The interesting part was that when
I called Stephen, he said, "You can
pick your ticket up at the airport."
They were that certain that I was
going to accept the position. I flew
up to New York City.
I left the airport and went
straight to rehearsal at Radio City
Music Hall. At the time Diana Ross
and Michael Jackson were back-
stage kicking it with him.
(Q: What did you think about
his death?) I didn't go to the funer-
al, I had surgery and couldn't go.
To me, he's still alive. Even this day,
around April 1 of every year, I call
his last manager, Andre White and
just reach out to him.
Q:Whatirksyou?
A: I have low tolerance for peo-
ple that are not tolerant. I do. I real-
ly do. I think that we have got to get
to the point in this world and this
community and this area where
we tolerate each other's differ-
ebces of opinion, differences of
lifestyles, differences of persua-
sion, whatever it is. I don't like
cookie cutter stuff, I don't like it. I
don't like cookie cutter houses,
cars, nothing. That's the beauty for
me in this whole world: people are
different. That's a good thing. You
put a jar over here and you put


marbles in it or gumballs and if
every single gumball was the same
size, the same color, it's bland. It
does nothing for me. But you mix
it up with colors and shapes and
sizes, oh my God, it's fascinating.
Other than that, I'm pretty cool.
I also have a low tolerance of
foolishness. Not having-a-good-
time foolishness, but foolish
endeavors. Some things are just
plain foolish. You can fill in the
blanks there.
Q: What is a memory you hold
dear?
A: Actually I go back a lot to the
time when Raywas on trial. I guess
because I was thrown into the
spotlight because he couldn't talk
and I had to talk for him. He was
charged with double murder in
Atlanta. Every day at noon and in
the evening we did a lot of broad-
casting. You had millions of people
watching and listening to what
you're saying. I think about that
often.
After Super Bowl in Atlanta '99,
he was charged with double mur-
der. He went out partying that
night and two guys got into a fight
and two guys ended up dead. I left
just prior to that happening, went
home to sleep and I woke up noon
the next-day. I was standing with
NBA players in Atlanta and I came
downstairs and he said, "Wow,
turn your television on." I did. He
was arrested.
I thought it was something for
whatever, getting drunk or some-
thing. As soon as I saw it I said
whoa. I immediately called his cell
phone and I got his uncle. His
uncle answered and said it was
true. I got dressed, rushed down to
the jail and they weren't letting
anybody see him.
(Q: How did that relationship
between you and the players
start?) It started when I was living
in Tallahassee. One of the my god-
sons who's played professionally
now for ten years was in high
school at the time and he went to
Florida State. I was going to town
one weekend and he came over to
the house with a bunch of players
and he said, "Rev, we're going to
stay at your house while you're
gone." I said, "No, you're not." But
of course I did, he's my godson
and I trusted him. A bunch of play-
ers stayed at the house.
When I got back to the house,
the house wasn't torn up. I'm sure
they did their thing but the house
was in order and everything was
fine. After that, they started to
come to my church. At one partic-,
ular Sunday, thirteen or sixteen;
joined the church. Some of them'
hadn't even been baptized before.
It started the relationship with
them that way, as an advisor, a
spiritual advisor and it became
more than that. It kind of expand-
ed.

What happened to Christ's Disciples?


Enforce the laws that
really matter
This is not about a person or
someone's "agenda". This is
about what is right
and wrong. The current
administration occupying City
Hall in Pahokee has found
another way to extort money
from the citizens. For two or
three months now the order has
come down from our mayor and
city manager to "enforce every
law on the books, your depart-
ment needs to pay for itself."
I have talked to numerous cit-
izens, many of whom have
searched me out to discuss their

shock and disgust, and tales I
have heard have been sad and in
some cases unbelievable. Who
among us knew of some of
these laws?
I find it shameful that our
mayor, and our highly-overpaid
city manager, have decided to
further fleece the citizens by fin-
ing us for laws that have not
been enforced for 40 years. Forty
years is how long my boss has
been parking the same way in
front of her house, on a residen-
tial side street, in a manner that
makes it safer for her and now
her granddaughter to enter the
vehicle. She did not know that
"parking against the flow of traf-
fic" was breaking the law. When

she went to ask why a warning
was not issued, she was rudely
told that "you can't expect us to
give out 6,000 warnings can you
?"
I know of a retired city work-
er who was given a fine of $250
for parking in a handicapped
zone in front of a local grocery
store. I have looked at the site,
myself, and I can see why this
elderly gentleman (who washed
Pahokee police cars for many
years) made his mistake. The
space was not properly signed
and the blue paint has worn off.
I believe the law requires a
handicapped space to be prop-
erly painted and sign placed
prominently.
Now don't get me wrong, I
am a real stickler for obeying the
laws, but Pahokee is the poorest
community in the state, with city
hall doing nothing to bring jobs
to our citizens, while the majori-
ty of those citizens rely on some
kind of government subsidy to
even keep their heads above
water. How can. our acting
police chief and our mayor and
city manager even sleep at night
knowing they are probably tak-
ing food .out of children's
mouths, or keeping an elderly
widow on Social Security from
paying her water bill every time
an inane ticket is written. -
Why don't they wake up and
address the real problems in
Pahokee open gambling on
many street corners, overt drug
dealing on every corner, obvious
prostitution, burglaries and
much more. Are parking
"against the flow of traffic" and
"parking on the grass" and other
reasons for ticketing really that
important? Sure they are,
because enforcing gambling,
drinking, drugging and other
laws costs money but parking
tickets make money. I am sure
the brave men and women of
Pahokee's Police Department
did not decide to become offi-
cers to write inane parking tick-
ets, they became officers to pro-
tect the public from people who
really break the laws. Oh, but
City Hall and our local Chamber
of Commerce protect that ele-
ment. Pahokee Deserves Better,

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
The lives, ministries, and deaths
of Christ's disciples are generally of
interest to those of us who share
the Christian faith, After all, these
are the individuals who knew Jesus
first hand and dedicated their lives
to sharing that relationship so that
all might share in the abundant
wealth of great things we have in
Christ Jesus.
The four Gospels and Paul's
Epistles reveal a lot about the early
ministries of these special people,
but we have a challenge before us
when we try to find out about them
after the launch of the early church
and how they met their maker.
What we do have are traditions, and
although the details of traditions are
often somewhat exaggerated, most
contain an element of truth.
Matthew wrote his Gospel in
Hebrew to try to remain authora-
tive in his accounts of the miracles
and teachings of Christ, Later, the
gospel of Matthew was translated
into Greek so Gentiles could read it.
From reports, Matthew was mar-
tyred by the sword, which generally
means beheading.
Mark carried the word down to
Egypt and then to Alexandria,
where he died after being dragged
through the streets by horses, Luke,
the physician, author of the Gospel
of Luke and the book of Acts, was
hanged in Greece as a result of
pagan opposition.
The Apostle John traveled to the
Roman province of Asia (Western
Turkey) where he became Bishop,
specifically over the seven church-
es named in the book of Revela-
tions. He was boiled in a large
basin of oil during the first wave of
Roman persecution under the
Emperor Nero. Miraculously, he
survived Decades later John was
sentenced to serve in the mines on
the prison island of Patmos. Finally
reed when the emperor died, John
returned and served again as the
Bishop of Edessa. John was the
only disciple to die of old age in
bed. The Emperor Nero also mar-
tyred Peter. Peter, feeling unworthy
to die in the same position as
Christ, asked to be crucified upside
down. James, the brother of Jesus,
refused to deny his faith in Christ
and was thrown from the pinnacle
of the temple-the same where
Satan took Jesus. Miraculously, he
survived the fall, so they beat him to


death with clubs. James the
greater, son of Zebedee, was ulti-
mately beheaded in Jerusalem.
(Acts 12:2) Andrew brother of
Simon Peter, was crucified on an X
shaped cross at his request after
being severely whipped by seven
soldiers. Tradition has it that he
continued to preach to his tormen-
tors for two days until he died.
Thomas was stabbed to death
with spears by pagans while on a
missionary trip to India.
Bartholomew also met his death in
India, being flayed to death with a
whip. Philip was martyred in Syria.
Jude, brother of Jesus, was killed
with arrows when he refused to den
his faith. Simon the Zealot and Thad-
deus were martyred but there are
not many details as to how. Matthias,

chosen b lot to replace Judas, was
stoned to death. The Apostle Paul
was beheaded by Nero.
Although not every detail can be
verified historically, the universal
belief of the early Christian writers
was that each faced martyrdom
faithfully without denying their
belief in the resurrection of Christ.
The fact that we are here today
gives evidence to the fruits of their
efforts and scarifies.
Let us give thanks for their faith-
ful witness, and in the words of the
song by Jon Mohr, "May all who
come behind us find us faithful.
May the fire of our devotion light
their way. May the footprints that
we leave lead them to believe, and
the lives we live inspire them to
obey. May all who come behind us
find us faithful."

Poison plants may


spoil outi
Spending more time outdoors
this summer, gardening, hiking or
camping? Be careful when
around plants you aren't familiar
with.
If you grew up elsewhere, you
may only think you know what
poison ivy, poison oak and poison
sumac look like. The plants vary
in appearance from region to
region. The versions found in
south Florida may not look the
same as the versions of the plants
found where you grew up.
Poison ivy can grow as a vine
or a shrub. The leaves may be
smooth or have notched edges
and are usually clustered in
groups of three.
Poison oak can be found as a
small bush or a climbing vine.
The leaves have smooth edges
and may be in clusters of three,
five or seven.
Poison sumac is commonly
found in wet areas so it is right at
home in south Florida. The leaves
are oval-shaped and smooth.
The oil on the leaves of these
"poison" plants can cause an
allergic reaction when it comes in
contact with skin. Exposure to the
plants can result in a rash that
usually develops within 24 to 72
hours after exposure. About half
the population is sensitive to
these plant oils. For many people,
sensitivity can develop over time,
especially with frequent expo-
sure. So even if you never had an
allergic reaction to poison ivy
before, you should still be careful.
For most people, exposure to
poison ivy, poison oak or poison
sumac results in an itchy rash that
can be treated with over the
counter remedies such as
Calamine lotion or hydrocorti-
sone creams.
For a few people, however, the
allergic reactions may be severe
and require medical care.
The rash may be bumps or

groups of bumps that seem to
form lines. It is a myth that the
rash can spread if the bumps
break and the fluid inside leaks.
Actually, skin exposed to the plant
oils may develop bumps over a
period of days, so it looks as if the
rash is spreading.
The rash can, however, spread
by more exposure to the plant
oils. These oils may linger on
clothing, shoes, tools or anything
else that has touched the plant. In
some cases, pets may have the
plant oils on their fur and transfer
the oil to people who pet the ani-
mals.
If you are exposed to poison
plants or their oils, wash with
soap and water as soon as possi-
ble. You can' also remove the
plant oils with alcohol. The faster
you remove the oil from your
skin, the better your chance at
avoiding or limiting a rash.
Some people develop severe
allergic reactions to these plants.
Contact a doctor if you have trou-
ble breathing or swallowing, feel
faint, if the rash covers a large por-
tion of your body, or if the rash
appears to be getting worse or
becoming infected.
Before making any change in
your diet or exercise plan, consult
your doctor. This is especially
important if you are on any pre-
scription medications. Some
drugs interact badly with foods
that would otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy."

Did hurricanes leave


a storm of babies?


By MaryAnn Morris
In light of the "baby booms"
that came after soldiers from
World War II and the Korean War
returned home, people won-
dered if the prolonged time spent
home, without lights or television
would result in a similar "boom"
for South Florida. For two months
South Floridians battened down
and huddled through Hurricanes
Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne
as their winds howled and pound-
ing rain battered. Few of us went
to work.
Area hospitals are seeing little
if any increases in births so far. In
conversations with representa-
tives from Glades General Hospi-
tal in Belle Glade, Lakeland
Regional Medical Center in Lake-
land, and St. Lucie Medical Center
in Port St. Lucie reports were that
although some new moms said
they had conceived during the
storms, mostly it was business as


usual. But, there is a. second
thought.
"One couple who delivered
recently was apart for seven days
during the storms. He is a fire-
fighter, and like other emergency
personnel, was on duty, but then
he came home!" said Melinda
Glasco of Martin Memorial Hospi-
tal in Stuart. "Our numbers have
been increasing with the popula-
tion, but June, 2005 we delivered
172 babies, the second highest
ever," she continued.
"Our nurses said there have
been 3 deliveries so far and they
expect six to eight more today. It's
only the first of July, we'll see if it
keeps up," Ms. Glasco said,
"Maybe relief that the air condi-
tioning came back on was the
inspiration!"
It's really too early to be sure.
Florida counties will report births
to the Office of Vital Statistics.
When they release their numbers,
then we'll know for sure.

States to successfully complete the
program, "said AFIA President Joel
Newman. "The company has
demonstrated a strong commit-
ment to food safety provided con-
sumers with additional reason for
confidence in the products they
provide."

fication signifies that U.S. Sugar's
Suga-Lik, Feed Department has
embraced the feed industry's
proactive role in creating feed
based safety programs and that
they are dong their part to reduce
food safety risks by raising the
industry's "own bar" when it
comes to this important obligation.

the feed manufacturer must be
able to identify the source from
which the ingredients that are
incorporated into a feed or feed
ingredient have been supplied. The
trace ability of the food chain must

duction, processing and distribu-
tion.

Local radio amateurs participate in national field day


As a part of national emer-
gency preparation, radio ama-
teurs across the nation operate
radio stations under emergency
conditions for a 24 hour period.
They work in emergency loca-
tions with emergency power
sources and attempt to contact as
many stations across the country
to simulate conditions that occur
during disasters. The annual
event s known as "Field Day" and
is sponsored by the American
Radio Relay League. Hendry
County participated in this event
on Saturday, June 26 by making
use of the emergency station at
John Boy Auditorium in Clewis-
ton.
The Auditorium is a designat-
ed emergency shelter for the area
and has emergency electrical gen-
erator capacities. There is a radio
station in the building with anten-
nas on the roof to make certain
communication to the outside


will be available under any condi-
tions. Local amateurs contacted
stations in different parts of the
country by both voice and code.
They were from areas around
Lake Okeechobee and included
Jim Sparks, AA4BN and Sam
Thomas, W3ALE from Clewiston
. Also participating was Tom
Street, N5KFR from Moore Haven
and Johnny Blakeney, WB4MED
and Carl "Doug" Cardin, KG4NNN
from Belle Glade.
This year, the American Radio
Relay League sent an assistant
regional director to share with the
local group of five radio amateurs
who had the local emergency sta-
tion on the air during the drill.
Briefly visiting the station was Jeff
Beale, WA4AW from Loxahatch-
ee who toured several emergency
Field Day sites in South Florida
and coordinated with other local
centers.

Thursday. July 7, 2005 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


Pahokee set to select new chief Arrest Report


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
PAHOKEE City Manager Lil-
lie Latimore told commissioners
last week she was nearing a deci-
sion on who the next chief of
police in Pahokee will be.
As of this writing, City Manager
Latimore had not made her deci-
sion; a decision anticipated
before the week's end.
According to Ms. Latimore, a
committee sorted through 47
applications for the position since
the initial advertisement was
released a few weeks ago. Mid-
way through last week, that com-
mittee made their final selection
and handed Ms. Latimore the
applications and resumes of three


finalists.
The rest is up to Ms. Latimore.
Before the committee provid-
ed its results to the city manager,
Ms. Latimore said she would be
looking for a candidate suited to
handle the unique responsibilities
of handling the city's top policing
duties.
"The basic qualification I'm
looking for is an A.A. degree," Ms.
Latimore said. "That person also
needs to have experience and a
strong management back-
ground," she added. "I want
somebody who will say, 'Let's do
what we need to do to make a
better city.'"
Making that decision, she said,


should be a far easier task after
the committee's screening of the
applicants. Made up of several cit-
izens and a number of key city
employees, the committee has
done an excellent job in handling
the process up to that point, she
said.
While in some municipalities,
including neighboring South Bay,
the chief is hired through a vote
by the commission, in Pahokee,
Ms. Latimore has the final say-so
in the hiring of chief. She said she
would study the qualifications of
each candidate and have a back-
ground screening, done through
the Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office, in place prior to her selec-


tion being named.
Her appointment will be the
first permanent chief after the
departure of former Chief of
Police Rafael Duran, who
resigned earlier this year amid a
controversy involving his officers
and ex-convict Robert Love and a
constant influx of complaints by
residents aimed at the police
department.
Detective Calipto Gonzalez
was selected to assume the inter-
im chief duties following Duran's
resignation. No formal complaint
has been filed against the police
department since Mr. Gonzalez's
appointment in March.

Hurricane season is under way 2005 hurricane names
~riene


A hurricane is a tropical storm
with winds that have reached a
constant speed of 74 miles per
hour or more. Hurricane winds
blow in a large spiral around a rel-
ative calm center known as the
"eye." The "eye" is generally 20 to
30 miles wide, and the storm may
extend outward 400 miles. As a
hurricane approaches, the skies
will begin to darken and winds
will grow in strength. As a hurri-
cane nears land, it can bring tor-
rential rains, high winds, and
storm surges. A single hurricane
can last for more than 2 weeks
over open waters and can run a
path across the entire length of
the eastern seaboard. August and
September are peak months dur-
ing the hurricane season that lasts
from June 1 through November
30.
The center, or eye, of a hurri-
cane is relatively calm. The most
violent activity takes place in the
area immediately around the eye,
called the. eyewall. At the top of
the eyewall (about 50,000 feet),
most of the air is propelled out-
ward, increasing the air's upward
motion. Some of the air, however,
moves inward and sinks into the
eye, creating a cloud-free area.


Tropical cyclones are classified
as follows:
Tropical Depression An
organized system. of clouds and
thunderstorms with a defined cir-
culation and maximum sustained
winds of 38 mph (33 knots) or
less.
Tropical Storm An organ-
ized system of strong thunder-
storms with a defined circulation
and maximum sustained wihds of
39 to 73 mph (34-63 knots).
Hurricane An intense tropi-
cal weather system with a well-
defined circulation and maxi-
mum sustained winds of 74 mph
(64 knots) or higher. Hurricanes
are called "typhoons" in the west-
ern Pacific, while similar storms
in the Indian Ocean are called
"cyclones."
Hurricanes form in the Atlantic
Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, Indian
Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Pacific
Ocean. Hurricane winds in the
Northern Hemisphere circulate in
a counterclockwise motion
around the hurricane's center or
"eye," while hurricane winds in
the Southern Hemisphere circu-
late clockwise. Natural phenome-
na, which affect a storm, include
temperature of the water, the Gulf


Stream, and steering wind cur-
rents. Powered by heat from the
sea, they are steered by the easter-
ly trade winds and the temperate
westerlies as well as by their own
ferocious energy. Around their
core, winds grow with great
velocity, generating violent seas.
Moving ashore, they sweep the
ocean inward while spawning
tornadoes and producing torren-
tial rains and floods.

In the eastern Pacific, hurri-
canes begin forming by mid-May,
while in the Atlantic, Caribbean,
and Gulf of Mexico, hurricane
development starts in June. For
the United States, the peak hurri-
cane threat exists from mid-
August to late October although
the official hurricane season
extends through November. Over
other parts of the world, such as
the western Pacific, hurricanes
can occur year-round. Areas in
the United States vulnerable to
hurricanes include the Atlantic
and Gulf coasts from Texas to
Maine, the territories in the
Caribbean, and tropical areas of
the western Pacific, including.
Hawaii, Guam, American Samoa,
and Saipan.


Hurricane
Categories
Hurricanes are rated from 1 to
5 according to what is known as
the Saffir-Simpson Scale.
Category 1: Hurricane has a
central barometric pressure of
28.94 inches or more and winds
of 74 to 95 mph. The storm is
accompanied by a 4 to 5 foot
storm surge and causes minimal
damage
Category 2: Pressure 28.5 inch-
es to 28.93 inches, winds from 96
mph to 110 mph, storm surge 6 to
8 feet, damage moderate.
Category 3: Pressure 27.91
inches to 28.49 inches, winds
from 111 mph to 130 mph, storm
surge 9 to 12 feet, damage exten-
sive.
Category 4: Pressure 27.17
inches to 27.90 inches, winds
from 131 mph to 155 mph, storm
surge 13 feet to 18 feet, damage
extreme.
Category 5: Pressure less than
27.17 inches, winds greater than
155 mph, storm surge higher than
18 feet. Damage Catastrophic.

Are you prepared for a hurricane?


As Floridians watch weather
reports about approaching tropi-
cal storms, the reality of hurricane
season is once more upon us. Are
you ready for a hurricane?
Keep your car's gas tank full.
Don't let it get below half a tank
without refilling. When a hurri-
cane watch is declared, there may
be a gas shortage. If you plan to
evacuate, you will need enough
gasoline to get you out of the hur-
ricane area.
If you live in a low-lying area
or a home that was damaged by
the 2004 storms and has not been
repaired, you should make plans
to stay elsewhere during a storm.
Depending on the severity of the
storm, mobile home dwellers
may be asked to evacuate. Make
plans now to stay with friends, rel-
atives or a hotel. Use the county


s hurricane shelters as a last
resort. Shelters provide protection
to save your life, but are usually
crowded and uncomfortable. If
you do go to a shelter, you will
need to take your own bedding as
you will have to sleep on the floor.
Keep cash on hand. If you
have to evacuate, you will need
cash. If the power is out, the ATM
machines will not work and
banks will be closed. Don t wait
until the last minute to get cash,
as the ATM machines may run
out.
Buy extra batteries for all
battery operated items you will
want to use if power is out. This
includes flashlights, radios, televi-
sions and battery-operated toys.
Make sure you have the right size
batteries for each item. If you
haven t put batteries in the


radio in more than a year, you
may forget if it takes "C" or "D"
cell batteries. Make a list before
you shop. I
Put all important documents
(insurance documents, birth cer-
tificates, marriage license, auto
titles, etc.) in a waterproof bag or
box and place it where you can
easily find it so you can take it
with you if you have to evacuate.
Document your possessions,
with a list and with photos or
videotape. Take photos of home 6
inside and out and any other
buildings on your property.
Should your home be destroyed,
you will need proof of what was
lost to show to the insurance
company. Put the list and photos
with your other important docu-
ments.
Decide in advance what you


will do with animals if a hurricane
is headed your way. If you plan to
evacuate and take pets with you,
make sure you have a place for
them. Pets are not allowed at hur-
ricane shelters, but some hotels
do allow guests to bring pets.
Livestock (horses and cattle) are
generally safer out in an open
field than in a barn. If animals are
in a barn and the barn collapses,
they can be trapped or crushed.
Left in an open field, horses and
cattle with use their own instincts
to survive 6 most just put their
backs to the wind and keep eat-
ing. If possible, mark livestock
(for example, with a waterproof
tag attached to a halter) and pho-
tograph animals to help identify
lost animals should fences be
destroyed by falling trees.

The American Red Cross advis-
es hurricane disaster kits should
include the following items:
First aid kit and essential
medications.
Canned food and can open-
er.

Protective clothing, rainwear
Bedding or sleeping bags.
Battery-powered radio,
flashlight, and extra batteries.
Special items for infants, eld-
erly, or disabled family members.
Written instructions on how
to turn off electricity, gas and
water if authorities advise you to
do so. (Remember, you'll need a
professional to turn them back
on.)
Change of clothes for all
family members.
Other helpful items to have on
hand during hurricane season:
Cash (ATMs may run out of
money or be inoperable)
Coolers and ice
Paper plates, paper cups,
paper napkins (you may not have
running water to wash dishes)
Chainsaw (to cut up fallen
tree limbs to make them easier to


move)
Battery operated
camp fan
Gas grill with extra supply of
propane gas (to cook food from
the freezer before it spoils)
Extra cans of gasoline for
your vehicle (if electricity is out,
gas pumps will not work)
Plastic. garbage bags (these
can be used to protect books,
photo albums and other items
from water damage).
Rubber storage bins (these
can be used to protect items from
water damage)
Duct tape (Can be used to
securely close storage bins,
secure plastic on top of furniture
to protect it from leaks, tape up
broken windows after a storm,
etc. In the summer of 2004, some
homeowners used Duct tape as a
temporary fix to repair a roof, and
keep the rain out until roofers
could be found.)
Insect repellent 6 standing
water after a hurricane breeds
mosquitoes
Camera, film (if not digital)
and batteries 6 you will want to
take pictures of damages to.docu-
ment it for insurance claims

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee Thursday, July 7, 2005


Statr pnotos/Jose Zaragoza
Dick Jones served as the
emcee of the program in
honor of Dr. Franke, poking
fun at his old co-worker. "No,
I am not the new provost," he
said in full garb.

with her presence is to provide
chocolate at your function. The
glasses were a running joke, with
every guest at the program receiv-
ing one at the door.
Such were the memories that
the provost's friends remem-
bered throughout the program.
It was the least they could do
after her dedication to this area,
they said.
Dr. Franke sat at a table in the
center of the room, taking clear
pleasure at the stories about her
and her work in the Glades and
at times exhibiting emotion,
standing up to hug each presen-
ter when they finished.
"You're a hard act to follow,"
conceded Dr. Effie Grear.
Meanwhile, Coach Don
Thompson called her "one of the
greatest and most beautiful peo-
ple I know."
Throughout her tenure at the
local branch of the college, Dr.
Franke has been a staple of the
institution locally, the presenters
said. Through her efforts, the

original estimate. The majority is
the result, officials said, of. the
extra cost of materials to be used
in the construction, as well as the
land acquisition for the site along
Hooker Highway and extensive
geo technical testing.
County officials, though,
remain committed to the project
and hope to continue working
together with the cities in identify-
ing sources of funding to close
that current gap, an approximate
$22 million shortfall.
While the total cost of the proj-
ect has increased, county officials
say the numbers are close to what
had been originally though each
city would be responsible for.
South Bay and Pahokee both
looked to put up $2.9 -iillion each
for the project, and that number
has risen to $3.4 million. Belle
Glade's initial figure was $13.6
million, 'up now to $16 million.
"How far away are we?" asked
James Beno, with the county's
water utilities department, "Pretty
close to where we were."
The county is exploring all
sources available to them, they
explained.
One of the possibilities for
South Bay and Pahokee, they
said, is a funding request through
the United States Department of
Agriculture. With each of the two
cities less than 10,000 in popula-
tion and meeting the require-
ments of a rural designation, the

Morris
Continued From Page 1


Mr. Morris started his law
enforcement career as a police
officer with the Tallahassee Police
Department in 1992, a position he
held for five years. He first served
in the Glades in 1998, taking a job
with the Boys and Girls Club as
assistant director of recreation.
There, he coordinated recreation-
al sports activities and worked
with local cities concerning gang
activity.
Throughout the same time, he
took a short drive to neighboring ,
South Bay, where he worked as
assistant director of education, as
well as substance abuse coun-
selor, at the Wackenhut Correc-
tional Facility in South Bay.
He joined the South Bay Public
Safety Department as a reserve
police officer in March of 1999,
moving up to detective and then
police sergeant. He served as an
assistant to the chief in that role,
and was selected to head the
department following former
South Bay Chief Albert Dowdell's
departure. Chief Dowdell
resigned after accepting the chief
of police position in Belle Glade..
He has a degree in science
from Florida State University,
where he also played football for
the college team.
The new chief will oversee the
city with a population of approxi-
mately 4,000 people and with
direct access to one of South
Florida's main thoroughfares run-
ning through it, U.S. 27.


Many people snowea up last v
fond farewell.
college has made great advance-
ments, including the construc-
tion of the Dolly Hand Cultural
Arts Theater and a sizeable
increase in enrollment at the col-
lege.
Dr. Franke also provided her
personal commitment to starting
several worthy programs in the
Glades. Each year, Dr. Franke
leads a committee of residents in
planning and organizing the Liv-
ing Christmas Tree, a tradition
during the holiday season, and
the Woman of Accomplishment
ceremony a ceremony honor-
ing outstanding women in the
Glades area.
She had a knack for knowing
exactly which programs could
and have succeeded in the
Glades, her friends said, having
developed a familiarity with the
area and with its citizens. -
Dr. Edward M. Eissey, the for-
mer president of Palm Beach
Community College who hired
Dr..Franke, summed it all up.
"Helen Franke certainly epito-
mizes that which you people in
the Glades hold so dear."
Regarding the praise she
received that day, he said,


USDA could provide another $9
million. Belle Glade, with its larger
population does not apply for
such a request, though city offi-
cials said they will look for ways
of reaching out to the USDA to
find a solution.
With Belle Glade the largest
stakeholder in the project,
responsible for 70 percent of the
project, and South Bay and Paho-
kee each only responsible for 15
percent each, the city looks for
support in covering their cost.
Officials-in neighboring cities
agree.
"For South Bay and Pahokee, I
think we're going to be alright,"
said South Bay Mayor Clarence
Anthony, referring to the possibili-
ty of the' two cities securing the
appropriation from the USDA.
"But we started this as a family
and we don't want to leave Belle


"Helen Franke, you deserve
every bit of it and you are fabu-
lous."
For her part, Dr. Franke said-
she will miss the area as much as
it will miss her.
She has formed friendships
that will last a lifetime and
thanked those in attendance for
accepting her with welcome
arms so many years ago.
It has also been the support
of the students and the impact
she had on them that touched
her in her role as provost, she
said. She read a letter from a for-
mer student who wrote to her in
appreciation for her work. The
student thanked her "most of all,
for believing in me."
The popular emcee, who has
conducted innumerable events
at the college and the theater
with professionalism and poise,
fought back tears as she
addressed the crowd of support-
ers.
"To the community, I will
never really leave," she said min-
utes before the program ended,
insisting that, "I am a better per-
son because I have been in the.
Glades with you."


Glade behind." Mayor Anthony
said that the federal government
had not "stepped up to the level
we anticipated."
County officials and tri-city offi-
cials agreed to move forward
together and possibly visit Wash-
ington in securing funding from
federal organizations and agen-
cies.
In the meantime, the county
will look for ways to' cut costs
throughout the project, and has
identified half a dozen items that
can be targeted in that respect.
That includes the storage
capacity of the plant. According to
Bevin Beaudet, Director of Palm
Beach County Water Utilities, the
storage capacity, in his opinion,
had been "over-designed." Con-
sidering the storage facilities avail-
able at each of the cities, the
county feels comfortable in

"The pastors came together
and they wanted to discuss what
they could do to make a differ-
ence," remembers Ms. Dukes.
"They developed an action plan.
We're very proud to report that the
community is concerned."
The idea was to enlist the help
of the volunteers in making a con-
certed effort to increase their visi-
bility in areas such as the park, and
including nearby streets facing the
same problems, including Rardin
Avenue.
At the park, the goal of the
committee is to add structure to
the activities there, and organize
outreaches such as the one done
June 26, a Sunday. The group gath-
ered that evening to walk the
streets using an approach offered
by one of the participants. When
considering what to say to the
groups of people they would meet
later that day, one of them suggest-
ed that the group say nothing at all.
The idea worked, and as the
group of people walked down the
street, with a full view of the peo-
ple drinking alcohol on street cor-
ners and others using foul lan-
guage, that activity slowed down
to a halt.
The simple act of interacting
with the people on the street pro-
duced a change within the activi-
ties of the people they met, said
Ms. Dukes, who said the group will
continue walking the streets of the
city.
The group has decided to meet
on a regular basis and gathers
twice monthly at Shiloh Mission-
ary Baptist Church in Pahokee
every other Sunday.
At the same time, the City of
Pahokee's recreation department
is working on its own to offer a
positive outlet to the adults who
cannot use the basketball facilities
at the park late at night.
According to Recreation Direc-
tor Herbert Crawford, a number of
adults pitched to him the idea of


reducing the plant's own storage
and making use of the existing
storage in the cities themselves.
At concerns that the plant
would be compromised in order
to cut costs, county officials say
the plant will not be "cheapened"
in any way. The quality of, the
plant itself and the quality of the
water, it will process will remain at
the level it has committed.
. If all continues to go well, the
final completion date for the plant
is expected at or arourid March
30, 2008. As far as the work
behind making the concept a
reality, officials say the project is
on schedule.

an adult basketball league. The
league would make use of the
city's gymnasium, located beside
the recreation department, to play
games.
They quickly set out to estab-
lish the league and to attract more
members and soon unveiled their
plans to Mr. Crawford, who has
pitched in to help.
The initial 12 persons who
came to Mr. Crawford now have
the involvement of almost 50 oth-
ers. Six teams are in the league,
with ten players to each team.
Games are played at the gym
on Tuesday and Thursdays, with
three games per night. With the
basketball league being such a
success, the recreation depart-
ment is considering offering other
sports, including volleyball, to
keep the public entertained. It is a
perfect venue for releasing energy
in a controlled environment, said
Mr. Crawford.
It all works to illustrate a much
different picture than what was
seen just a few weeks ago.


Initially, the problem at Martin
Luther King Park stemmed from
the growing crowds that almost
shut down the streets on Sunday
nights. At one point, the police
department and the sheriff's
office, with the help of helicopters,
broke up approximately 3,000
people at the park. The next day,
liquor bottles and trash littered the
park.
Since then, the two agencies
have cracked down on crowd con-
trol at the park, through a series of
sweeps that have cut down the
number of people gathered at the
park, said Acting Chief Calipto
Gonzalez. The sweeps for the time
being have been eliminated.
"This is what we've been work-
ing for in this community," said
Pahokee Mayor J.P. Sasser, who
along with the city manager had
called for the churches in the area
to unite in promoting a more per-
manent solution to the problem
than through police sweeps.
"We're taking our streets back.
You have my support," he said.

Citrus canker found near Fort Pierce


FORT PIERCE, Fla. Citrus
canker, one of the most destructive
diseases affecting Florida's $9 bil-
lion citrus industry, has been found
in a University of Florida citrus
research grove at UF's Indian River
Research and Education Center, or
IRREC, near Fort Pierce.
The discovery, confirmed
Thursday by the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Consumer
Services, Division of Plant Industry,
will likely require officials to destroy
all of the citrus trees in IRREC's
groves, halting all citrus research'
projects there, said Brian Scully,
director of the center and a profes-
sor of horticulture with UF's Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences, or UF/IFAS.
"This canker infection, though
contained in the early stages, will
temporarily halt all of our citrus
research projects at the center,"
Scully said. "It will take us a num-
ber of years to recover, but ulti-
mately this setback will offer us a
fresh start and improved groves in
which to conduct research. How-
ever, we will continue to conduct
our collaborative research in com-
mercial groves with the coopera-
tion of private industry."
The disease, caused by bacteria
in the genus Xanthomonas, can
affect ill citrus varieties, including
grapefruit, oranges and tangerines,
which are grown at IRREC, Scully
said. Trees affected by the disease
develop small brown lesions on
leaves, stems and fruit. Citrus
canker eventually reduces tree pro-
ductivity if left unchecked.
IRREC employees discovered
the outbreak Monday during a vol-
untary grove inspection, he said.
UF/IFAS officials immediately
reported the discovery to the Divi-
sion of Plant Industry, which is
responsible for the state's Citrus
Canker Eradication Program.
UF/IFAS will cooperate fully
with DPI to address the situation,
said Jimmy Cheek, UF senior vice

Hector Solis, a groundskeeper with the University of Flori-
da's Indian River Research and Education Center in Fort
Pierce, burns grapefruit trees infected with citrus canker in a
research grove at the center Friday, July 1, 2005. Workers
discovered the outbreak Monday, and officials will likely
have to destroy all citrus trees at the center, temporarily halt-
ing more than two dozen experiments. Caused by bacteria,
citrus canker is one of the most destructive diseases affect-
ing Florida's $9 billion citrus industry.


president for agriculture and natu-
ral resources. Mapping efforts by
the Citrus Canker Eradication Pro-
gram will establish the extent of the
infection and determine which
groves will be affected.
"Our personnel will assist DPI in
identifying all infected trees,"
Cheek said. '"After that, we'll cope
with the loss of any trees that may
occur. We now understand a little
better what citrus growers go
through when they face a canker
outbreak."
' State citrus canker eradication
procedures require the destruction
of all infected citrus trees that are
found, as well as any citrus trees
located within 1,900 feet of infected
citrus trees, Scully said. These
measures minimize the chances
the highly contagious disease will,


spread to other sites.
Currently, six IRREC faculty and
their collaborators from other
UF/IFAS facilities are conducting
more than two dozen experiments
in the research groves, some using
trees planted 30 to 50 years ago, he
said.
Citrus research efforts at IRREC
emphasize plant breeding, ento-
mology, pathology and virology,
soil and water science, plant nutri-
tion and irrigation and post-harvest
physiology, Scully said.
"It is difficult to quantify the loss
in terms of time, monetary value
and the potential impact that our
research findings have on the
statewide citrus industry," Scully
said.
In addition, citrus research pro-
grams at the U.S. Department of


Agriculture Horticultural Research
Laboratory adjacent to IRREC are
vulnerable to the effects of the
canker infection in the IRREC
groves, said Harold Browning,
statewide coordinator for UF citrus
programs in teaching, research and
extension.
Scully said he believes the dis-
ease did not reach IRREC via
human activity. "Our facility has
been strictly following the precau-
tions recommended by the Divi-
sion of Plant Industry and used by
growers," he said.
The bacteria that cause citrus
canker can spread on air currents,
in rainwater, and on people, ani-
mals, plants and farm equipment,
Scully said.
Ongoing canker sanitation and
decontamination efforts will be
stepped up at UF's other citrus
research units, including the Citrus
Research and Education Center in
Lake Alfred arid the Southwest
Florida Research and Education
Center in Immokalee, said Brown-
ing, who directs the Lake Alfred
center.
"There is no reason to suspect
that citrus canker would have
reached other IFAS facilities byway
of the Indian River Research and
Education Center, thanks to the
many safeguards we have in
place," Browning said. "But with
canker in many areas of the state,
ongoing vigilance is necessary."
UF/IFAS citrus researchers
statewide have been developing
plans to react to a canker find that
involved UF/IFAS research plant-
ings, Browning said.
"Florida citrus growers rely on
our expertise to deliver improved
citrus varieties, to address emerg-
ing citrus challenges, and to help
growers implement better man-
agement practices year after year,"
he said. "This setback will not affect
our commitment to work with the
industry to help solve their prob-
lems."


UF scientist detect


soybean rust


CITRA, Fla.- Asian soybean
rust, a crop-killing disease first
detected in the United States last
fall, has been found near Citra on
soybeans at a University of Flori-
da "sentinel plot" planted early
to detect the fungus. It was one
of two findings this week that
mark the first appearances of
soybean rust on U.S. soybeans
during the typical growing sea-
son, and UF researchers fear the
discovery signals the beginning
of outbreaks that may devastate
the nation's $16 billion soybean
industry.
The disease was found
Wednesday by Jim Walker, a
biological scientist with the Flori-
da Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services, Division
of Plant Industry, which has
been monitoring the plots in
cooperation with UF's Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences, or UF/IFAS. On Thursday,
a Division of Plant Industry labo-
ratory confirmed that the
pathogen was Asian soybean
rust, said David Wright, a
UF/IFAS professor of agronomy
in Quincy.
The other discovery was
made Tuesday on a sentinel plot
in Baldwin County, Ala., Wright
said. Previously, soybean rust
was found in Florida and other
Southern states after the 2004
growing season ended. The crop
is typically planted in the spring
and produces soybeans in the
summer and early fall.
"There's a lot at stake now,
and nobody really knows what
will happen," Wright said. "But if
there are major problems, it will
affect a lot of people."
Losses from the disease -
which kills up to 95 percent of


infected plants could drive up
prices on products ranging from
margarine and peanut butter to
livestock feed and biodiesel fuel,
he said.
UF and state agricultural
experts have joined a nation-
wide effort to help farmers pro-
tect this year's crop, estimated at
74 million acres, Wright said.
Soybeans are grown in 31 states,
with heaviest production in the
Midwest.
By monitoring sentinel plots
at 26 Florida sites, Wright and
other scientists at UF's North
Florida Research and Education
Center in Quincy hope to pro-
vide data on the disease's devel-
opment, distribution and other
factors that could assist farmers
in northern areas of the nation,
Wright said. The project is fund-
ed by the U.S. Department of
Agriculture and the North Cen-
tral Soybean Research Program,
a consortium representing high-
er education institutions in the 31
soybean-producing U.S. states.
Many growers are concerned
about being caught off guard by
soybean rust, because the fun-
gus, known as Phakopsora
pachyrhizi, is spread by tiny
spores that can travel hundreds
of miles on air currents, he said.
"The fungus also matures
very quickly," Mr. Wright said.
"Once a spore lands on a host
plant, it can produce new spores
in nine days."
Despite its name, soybean
rust attacks more than 30
species of legumes, a plant fami-
ly that includes beans, peas and
clover, he said. On soybeans, it
causes infected leaves to devel-
op small brownish spots, then
turn yellow and fall off.

Unlike most citrus diseases,
which are usually plant-like fungi,
citrus canker is a serious bacterial
disease. When a plant disease is
caused by bacteria, the only ways
to control it are to use chemicals
to kill the organism, or by sanita-
tion, which means that effected
plants must be burned. Citrus
Canker bacteria are microscopic,
and can be spread by uncontrol- -

agriculture offi-
tly respond to


your call by sending an inspector
to the suspected tree location.
Inspectors will identify them-
selves and seek your permission
to view the tree. Do not, and I
repeat, Do not, remove suspi-
cious citrus tree parts and trans-
port them to another location.
(2) If you walk, drive or visit
any grove or other property
where canker has been identi-
fied, you should plan on washing
all outer clothing (gardening
clothes, gloves, hats etc.) in a hot
water cycle with laundry soap
immediately following outdoor
chores around citrus trees. Disin-
fecting your hands can be done
by first washing them with soap
and water, followed by dipping
into a chlorine bleach (sodium
hydrochloride) disinfectant solu-
tion of approximately 1 oz. of
bleach to 1 gallon of water (a 200
ppm solution).
(3) Clean all landscape tools
(pruning shears, clippers, chain
saws, pocket knives, etc.) that
have contacted citrus trees. Use a
Clorox-type disinfectant at the
rate of about 6 oz. of bleach to 1
gallon of water (about 1200
ppm). Be sure to wash the tools
clean of any soil or plant residue
before dipping in the bleach solu-
tion.
(4) Have any landscapers who
work on your property (yardmen,
landscapers, etc. who may work
around citrus trees) practice the
same measures as listed above. A
specific decontamination sugges-
tions bulletin

Celebrate July with the thrill of the summer grill


The arrival of summer brings
with it reasons to celebrate; and
many people honor the warm-
season tradition by firing up the
grill and hosting festive gather-
ings with family and friends. And
with many Americans wanting
to maintain healthier, slimmer
figures during the summer sea-
son, grilled foods can offer
healthy eating alternatives to
high-calorie, high-fat choices
that sabotage weight-loss plans.
But grillers beware: Grilled
doesn't always equal low calo-
rie. Just because it's made on
the grill and not fried in a pan
doesn't mean it constitutes a
healthy meal. While grilling is a
healthier way to prepare meals,
don't get tricked into thinking
that it's always the best option.
The key to delicious, healthy
grilling is smart substitutions.
For example, swap burgers
made from extra lean ground
beef or turkey, or even veggie
burgers, for the classic versions.
And turkey franks arena-.great
alternative to beef franks.
The same goes for traditional
sides, such as chips: choose
baked over regular.
Oftentimes, plain produce,
such as corn, squash or zucchi-
ni, can be turned into a fabulous
treat by adding a few calorie-free
spices or nonfat cooking spray
before grilling.


Try these fresh delicious
options for healthy grilling from
the new Weight Watchers cook-
book, Grill It!:
Fresh Tomato-Basil Bruschet-
ta, a combination of juicy toma-
to mixed with fresh basil and
olive oil, is sure to satisfy the
taste buds.
Snapper Fillets with Summer
Vegetables offers a light, healthy
dish with loads of flavor, and
complements the ripe and
refreshing flavors of the Tomato-
Basil Bruschetta appetizer.
Charred Bananas with Sweet
Lime Sauce is a satisfying ending
to a meal that combines the tan-
talizing flavors of ginger, lime,
and brown sugar to create a
luscious tropical treat.

Fresh tomato-basil
Bruschetta
makes four servings
four (1/2-inch-thick) slices
Tuscan or peasant bread, three
1/2 x 6 inches
one garlic clove, halved
eight fresh basil leaves, sliv-
ered

two large ripe tomatoes, each
cut into eight slices
1. Spray the grill rack with
nonstick spray; prepare the grill
for a medium fire using the


direct method.
2. Place the bread slices on
the edges of the grill rack; toast
just long enough to crisp and
char them lightly. Turn with
tongs, and toast the other sides.
3. Rub the bread with the gar-
lic halves; wrap loosely in foil to
keep warm.
4. Combine the basil and oil
in a small bowl, and gently toss
the tomatoes in the mixture.
Arrange the tomato slices on the
bread slices and serve at once.

an extra-wide spatula to turn
them more easily. Use bananas
that are firm with no brown
spots as they will hold up better.

With the direct method of
grilling, food is placed four to
five inches directly above the
heat source of either a gas or
charcoal grill. This method
cooks food relatively quickly,
resulting in more browning on
the outside of the food.
Direct cooking is best suited
for smaller pieces of food such
as kebabs, steaks, chops, burg-
ers, or vegetables.

need to purchase a non-resident
hunting license. This state spon-
sored course meets the require-
ments for hunter safety training
throughout North America.

The free Hunter Safety
Course is available as a tradition-
al classroom program or as a
home-study course. Traditional
classroom courses are offered in
all of Florida's counties. Families
with children are encouraged to


attend a traditional course as
interaction with the instructors
help children and their parents
to better understand the course
materials and instructors can
answer questions and clarify
concepts, which cannot be
accomplished with the on-line
or CD version.

Everyone born on or after
June 1, 1975, is required to pass
this course prior to purchasing a


hunting license. An adult is
required to accompany children
under 16 years of age to all class-
es. Children under 18 years of
age must present a Parental
Release Form signed by the
child's parent or legal guardian
to participate in the live-fire
exercises. The interactive course
was developed in cooperation
with seven other southeastern
states to increase accessibility to


hunter safety programs.

A statewide schedule of
hunter safety classes is available
on the web at
myfwc.com/huntered, and
while you are there, be sure to
check out other programs
offered through the Hunter Safe-
ty Program, such as the Bow
hunting Course and the Becom-
ing an Outdoors-Woman work-
shops.
