City: Inman
suspended days
before his arrest
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
SOUTH BAY Following a
story that ran in a previous issue
of The Sun citing a Belle Glade
police report that claimed that
top-level South Bay city officials
did nothing to prevent violence
between two of its employees
at city hall, the officials have


responded to the charge.
According to those officials
named in the arrest report, the
history of such incidents has
been well documented, with a
number of police reports at the
police station recording a hand-
ful of cases that the department
responded to involving Charles
Inman, the city's recreation
director. Police intervention
ensued following incidents that
occurred at city hall.
The reason no arrests were
made in those cases is due to


the fact that, following such
incidents, no one cared to step
forward to provide police with
an official statement, city offi-
cials said.
Mr. Inman is the subject of
the aggravated battery charge
leveled by the Belle Glade Police
Department following an inci-
dent of domestic violence at his
home July 4. While Mr. Inman
accedes his involvement in that
case, he nevertheless denies the
accusation that any similar inci-
dent occurred at his place of


End of summer: Party at pool
M .,AlAM.lM MOM


INI/Jose Zaragoza
Thanks to the efforts of the American Red Cross organization, the city of Belle Glade
and funding through the Quantum Foundation, approximately 1,400 kids have received
swimming lessons at Lake Shore Pool in Belle Glade. Participants, swimmers and offi-
cials gathered July 28 at the pool to recognize the efforts of everyone involved in the
worthwhile project.

Dean Dimke with the American Red Cross
addresses the public at the Lake Shore
Pool, touching on the importance of teach-
ing swimming to children in the area.
Throughout the summer, the Red Cross, in
partnership with the city of Belle Glade's
recreation department, along with area
recreation departments, provided swim-
ming lessons for free or very little charge.
The program also served to train lifeguards.

the program. The lifeguards had super-

work, South Bay City Hall.
His superior, City Manager
Tony Smith, disagrees.
"I did the most I could do
under the color of law," City
Manager Tony Smith told The
Sun this week in reference to
the accusation made in the July
4 police report that he, along
with South Bay Chief Michael
Morris and Belle Glade Chief
Albert Dowdell, had knowledge
of violence within city hall and
did nothing about it.
"You have two individuals


who seem to be drawn to
propensity for conflict," he said.
From November of last year
to about March of this year, the
police department responded to
calls involving Mr. Inman,
though most did not transpire at
work. In one such case, Mr.
Inman reportedly threw a con-
crete block at a vehicle, causing
the passenger window to break.

Cities still



considering



fire options


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
PAHOKEE At a presenta-
tion before the Pahokee city
commission, the city manager
and several top firefighters laid
out the three basic options the
city is faced with choosing from
in order to comply with county-
wide minimum level of fire serv-
ice standards.
The city has from now until
September to decide whether or
not it will give its fire department
the go-ahead to become a part
of the county's fire department.
Currently, it seems to be the
option that makes most sense to
the city financially.
The county has in recent
years made a drive toward


enforcing a minimum level of
fire service standards in order to
provide a more uniform cover-
age countywide. Since then, the
description of that new standard
includes obligating fire depart-
ments to have no less than
eleven persons on call at any
given time. The number repre-
sents a large order for Glades
cities, where the idea of expan-
sion is an unlikely proposition.
The three Glades cities have
for months been in discussion
with one another'regarding their
options. One idea early on was
the possibility of the creation of a
regional fire department com-

Private firm



to tackle code



enforcement


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
PAHOKEE The city of
Pahokee is considering mak-
ing use of a private company
to. tackle code enforcement
violations that currently go
un-addressed throughout the
community.
The company will be
called in with their crews to
clean up properties through-
out the city that, though their
owners have been warned to
comply with code regulations,


the properties remain eye-
sores for the community.
The city commission
seems interested in hiring the
company to do the work, but
last week the commissioners
expressed concerns at how
the bill for such services
would be paid for and han-
dled.
According to City Manager
Lillie Latimore, property own-

Police nab shooting suspect


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
PAHOKEE The Pahokee
Police Department arrested a
Pahokee man, who faces the
charge of attempted felony
murder after allegedly shooting
into the home of a man.
Officials with the police
department say the families, of
the two individuals involved in
the matter have been feuding
for some time and that the argu-
ments have now escalated to a
dangerous level.
The shooting, officials said,
is simply the latest incident in
that conflict.
It happened July 19, when
officers were dispatched to
Cypress Avenue in reference to
a shooting. Officers arrived at
approximately 10 a.m. and met
with the victim, Anthony Lee.
Lee told officers that Willie
Wimberly, a.k.a. Big Willie, had
approached Lee as he exited his
home and brandished a small
handgun. Lee said Willie then


pointed the gun at him.
When Lee asked him what
the gun was for, Willie reported-
ly responded by saying, "You,"
before firing at Lee. Lee man-
aged to back up just before'
Willie began to shoot. A shot in
Lee's direction missed him,
before penetrating a bedroom
window at the rear of the home.
Lee told officers that after fir-
ing his gun at Lee, Willie fled
the area and had run to his own
residence on 4th Street, which
is just across the street from the
victim's home.
Officers searched the home
on 4th street, and noticed that
the rear door to the home had
been left flung open. A closer
inspection of the premises
revealed that the suspect had
indeed fled from the area and
was nowhere to be found.
During the investigation, offi-
cers also inspected the home of
Lee, where they took notes.
They focused their investigation
on the bedroom located on the


west side of the home. There,
they noted how the bullet had
pierced the window, traveled
through a curtain and ended up
lodged in a doorframe.
The victim's two nieces, a
14-year-old and an eight-year-
old, were reportedly sleeping in
their bunk beds, approximately
one to two feet below the final
resting place of the bullet. Pho-
tographs of the bullet holes
were taken. The bullet was
removed and secured.
Interim Police Chief Calipto
Gonzalez spoke to the family of
the suspect, convincing them
that the best route for action
was in handing Wimberly to the
police department before mat-
ters grew worse.
"I told them the other family
was looking for him and if they
found him he would be in trou-
ble," said Chief Gonzalez.
Police say that. after the

Harmony in the Streets
The kids in the Sheriff's Youth Ranches Harmony in the
Streets program were happy last week after the program
ended, with a proper graduation ceremony to cap off the
summer activities. The program has become a fixture in
the Glades, having been carried out in unincorporated
areas near Pahokee and Belle Glade. Kids in the program
continue learning during the summer, as well as having
fun, and forming bonds with law enforcement officers.

What's going on in the world of art


Editor's note: Mrs. Ann Tyler is
a well-respected artist and
author, living in the Glades. Her
newest column, "Art Talk", will
run monthly in the first week's
editions of the Clewiston News,
Glades County Democrat, and
The Sun.
Hey! Welcome to Art Talk.
When I was invited to write this
art column for The Sun my first
thought was, what goes around
really does come around
because back in the 70's I wrote
the column Art Talk for The Belle
Glade Herald for several years.
So, here we go again.
If you're not an art person join
us anyway because art is for
everyone! You'll be surprised at
some of the things I'm going to
show you, through the eye of the
artist, about your home the
Glades.
Before I start to fill the lines of
this column with what I hope
will entertain and enlighten you,
let me first take a few lines to
introduce myself to those who
might be thinking, "Who is Ann


Tyler?" I'm the Artist of the
Glades. I took that title for myself
many years ago when I stopped
being just a portrait artist and
realized that my "Giverny gar-
den," Monet's inspiration, was
the beautiful tropical Everglades.
This is my place, the Glades I
was born here, raised here, and
hope to die here.
I can get real excited about
painting Seminoles, alligators,
turtles, exotic orchids, and Beany
Backus Florida skies. You may
have seen some of my work on
the covers of the Black Gold
Jubilee booklets, or in the Bank
of Belle Glade, Fidelity Federal


banks, Everglades Research and
Education Center, different
museums, and businesses
around the county.
I've been teaching the art of
fine oil painting here in Belle
Glade for over 30 years, and the
Glades Art Group is actually the
hundreds and hundreds of
Glades people that have come to
my studio seeking to enrich their
lives through the fine arts. The
Glades Art Group has their yearly
art showing at the Black Gold
Jubilee.
Let me end this first column
by telling you about one of my
favorite artists the caveman.


Did you know that the prehistoric
clans supported their artist, and
they were amazed and enthralled
with the drawings on the cave
walls. These weren't some scrib-
bling by a lower intelligence, but
ecstatic drawings that were
15,000 years ahead of their time.
Surely a sign that man wasn't
"monkeying around" way back
there in those cave days.
I certainly realize that the sup-
port of my Glades community
has made it possible for me to
become a professional artist.
They've been with me all the
way, buying my work and
encouraging me to be the Artist
of the Glades. I'm so glad that I
was born early enough to per-
sonally know our early pioneers.
I've written and illustrated a book
about the history of this last fron-
tier: The Glades. Torry Island Boy
of the Everglades is on sale at the
Belle Glade Chamber Commerce
and you can check it out at your
local public library.

Home remedies include Epsom salts


I love home remedies espe-
cially when an inexpensive house-
hold product has a number of uses.
Epsom salt is one of those useful
substances that falls into that cate-
gory.
I first purchased Epsom salt
about three years ago, on the
advice of a veterinarian. He pre-
scribed an Epsom salt foot soak for
an injured, horse. I noticed on the
package that the substance has
many other uses. A little online
research uncovered more uses.
Epsom salt is the common
name for magnesium sulfate
(MgSo4). I have also found it
spelled "Epson salt".
Epsom salt is naturally occur-
ring part of sea salt. About two per-
cent of sea salt is Epsom salt. It has
medical, veterinary, nutritional, and
horticulture uses.
Some common uses of Epsom
salt, found on the Epsom Salt
Council Web site:
A foot soak (for people or
horses): It soothes sore muscles,
draws toxins out of sores and helps
reduce foot odor. Mix one cup
Epsom salt to one-gallon hot water.
Soak for 20-30 minutes, twice a day.
As a fertilizer: Sprinkle about
one tablespoon Epsom salt around

the base of a rose bush, mix in with
the soil.
To treat injured saltwater trop-
ical fish: As a natural component of
sea salt, it helps stressed or strug-
gling fish maintain better osmotic
balance. Add one-teaspoon Epsom
salt per 10 gallons of water in a salt-
water tank. It can also be used in a
freshwater fish tank to raise hard-
ness or electrolyte levels. (Test
water before adding any salts.)
As a laxative for people and
animals: Check with your doctor or
veterinarian about the appropriate
dosage. Overdosing of Epsom salts
can cause other health problems.
As a relaxing bath, to soothe
sore muscles: Add two cups of
Epsom salt to awarm bath.
As a facial scrub: Mix one-half
teaspoon Epsom salt to your regu-
lar cleansing cream and massage


into the skin. Rinse with cold water.
*To exfoliate dry skin: Wet skin
and massage handfuls of Epsom
salt over rough spots. Rinse in a
bath.
To remove excess oils from
hair: Mix nine tablespoons of
Epsom salt to one-half cup oft,
shampoo. Apply one tablespoon of
the shampoo mixture to your hair
when it is dry; rinse with cold
water. Pour a mixture of lemon
juice and water or diluted apple
cider vinegar through the hair,
leave on for 5-10 minutes, and then
rinse and wash with your regular
shampoo.
To treat a sprain or bruise:
Add two cups Epsom Salt to a
warm bath, and soak.
To remove a splinter: Soak in
Epsom Salt, it will draw out the
splinter.
Epsom salt can also be fun and
educational. A home-school Web
site offered a recipe for making
crystal Christmas ornaments with
Epsom salt.
Ingredients:
One package Epsom salts
Pipe cleaners
Straight-sized glass or container,
which can hold at least two cups of
liquid.


Pencil or stick long enough to
go over the mouth of the container.
Instructions:
Bring one cup of water to a boil.
Stir while adding Epsom salt, about
one-fourth cup at a time. Keep
adding Epsom salt until the solu-
tion will not turn clear without stir-
ring. At this point, the solution is
saturated and will not absorb any
more Epsom salt.
Bend a long pipe cleaner into a
holiday shape at one end. Use the
other end as a "hanger". Hang the
pipe cleaner over a pencil, sus-
pended over a straight-sized con-
tainer. (If you use a container such
a jar with a mouth smaller than the
sides, you might not be able to get
your crystal out of the container.)
Pour the Epsom salt solution over
the pipe cleaner into the container.
Set in a warm place where it will
not be disturbed. In about three
weeks, the water will have evapo-
rated, leaving crystals on the pipe
cleaner. Enjoy them while they last.
These crystals are fragile and in
time the moisture in the air will
cause them to fall apart.
Before using home remedies,
consult your doctor. This is espe-
cially important if you are on any
prescription medications. .,


UF experts help bring agriculture to classrooms


GAINESVILLE To help Flori-
da schoolchildren understand
farming and its impact on their
lives, University of Florida experts
are contributing to a statewide
program that enables teachers to
incorporate agricultural educa-
tion in a variety of courses.
Florida Agriculture in the
Classroom, or FAITC, offers free
or nominally priced materials suit-
able for students from pre-K to
through grade 12 to public and
private school teachers, said Lisa
Gaskalla, executive director of the
program. Although the program
is housed at UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences, or
UF/IFAS, it is an independent
organization funded by sales of
the agriculture specialty license
plate, and supported by UF/IFAS,
Florida agriculture industry
organizations and the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services.
"Many children think food
comes from the grocery -store,"


Gaskalla said. "Farming may be in
a family's background, but it's
generally two or more genera,
tions back. For us, the challenge is
to make agriculture relevant to
these kids, and provide informa-
tion in a form that's practical for
teachers to use."
FAITC offers an array of grade-
specific lesson plans that use agri-
cultural topics to teach language
arts, math, science and social
studies lessons, she said. A typical
example gives -students citrus
juice production data and teaches
them about percentages by ask-
ing them to calculate how much
production has changed from
one year to another.
The program includes four
other features, Gaskalla said. One
provides grants to pay for school
gardens and agricultural field
trips. Another brings small lend-
ing libraries called Ag Learning
Barns to schools, where teachers
can check out agriculturally
themed books, puzzles and


videos for students.
The third feature, AgriSmarts,
has officers from The National
FFA Organization visit schools to
discuss everyday items that come
from the farm, she said. The


fourth, Ag Literacy Day, brings FFA
officers, farmers, ranchers and
industry representatives to
schools to read a designated chil-
dren's book about agriculture to
students.

Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the Belle Glade/South Bay issues blog at http://newsblog.info/0901.
It is a hometown forum so visit the page as often as you would like and
share your comments (but no personal attacks or profanities, please).
You can also make a comment by calling our Speak Out 24-hour
opinion line at 996-6636. Comments will be published in the newspa-
per as space permits.
SCARY SITUATION: The AIDS scare and Belle Glade connection
had to do with a high rate of infection in a certain segment of the popu-
lation that uses drugs or frequents prostitutes. These are high-risk
activities and if you don't want to be exposed to AIDS you should avoid
anyone who is involved with such activities.

SOMETHING FISHY IN SOUTH BAY: I heard from a reliable source
that the city of South Bay is in bad financial shape. So they had no
choice but to cut back on essential personnel. Perhaps, The state Of
Florida ought to conduct a criminal investigation and audit the city for
possible mismanagement of human resources and financial assets. I
heard bad rumors before, that something "fishy" is going on. Time for
the state attorney office to put some people behind bars. Don't you
think? Wackenhut is not too far away from town hall.

SISTERLY LOVE: Houston Tate supposedly has a BA degree, but by
word only. This is what landed him the public service director's posi-
tion prior to becoming city manager. Ms. Hunter, human resources
director, can do whatever she so desires. She and her sister (also a city
employee) got into a fight at city hall, but nothing was ever done to
either of them. Oh well, that's the city of Belle Glade for you.

PAHOKEE TREE ANSWERS: This is in response to the person who
keeps calling in each week in Speak Out that is obsessed with the
planters in the middle of the road. My suggestion is that instead of try-
ing to blame it on the current administration, that (he/she) go back
and see that the person who is responsible for those planters is former
city manager Ken Skank, not the current administration. But then
again, facts never seem to bother this person.

FAIRY TALE: Yes, I'd like to call about the fairy tale that was pub-
lished about Officer Maxwell. If every officer got their wife to call in a
wonderful story like she did, this would be like a little fairy tale story. If
every officer's wife called in and told them how great their husbands
are, this would be a lot better place in Pahokee.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling: We, of course, do not always
know who calls into Speak Out, but in this case, all we can tell you is
that was not a female.

GATOR TROUBLES: As a concerned citizen of Pahokee I heard peo-
ple in (inaudible) talking about this canal in back of them. They have
went up to the city trying get something done. Nothing has been done.
This has been about three or four years ago they have not done any-
thing about it. It is so sad that I guess someone would have to get eaten
by a gator and then maybe they would do something about it. But I
don't think a person should have to lose the life of some of their chil-
dren before they would do something about it. I think something
should be done about this canal. They are doing everything else
around Pahokee but seeing to these people's safety. As a concerned
citizen, ya'll need to do something. Don't wait until something tragic
happens and then do something about it.
.Editor's note: Thanks for calling. Ifyou are having a legitimate prob-
lem with nuisance alligators, we suggest you contact FWC's nuisance
alligator number at (866) 392-4286. This is a toll-free number. Unfortu-
nately, unless an alligator actually attacks, there is little a city govern-
ment entity can do. However, if you feel there is a threat, FWC main-
tains full jurisdiction and is the only authorized agency, which can help
with an alligator problem that has not yet created an "incident". Also, if
there are large reptiles present, alligator season is around the comer
and I'm sure the lucky few licensed hunters would like to know where
they are.

Community Profile: Mattie Harmon


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Q: What is your name?
A: My name is Mattie Harmon.
Q: Where were you born?
A: I was born in a little town
called Vidalia, Georgia. My par-
ents were contractors and they
went all over the world and they
found Pahokee to be their home.
They liked Pahokee and shortly
we moved to Belle Glade. I've
been here 40-some years.
Q: What doyoudo?
A: I work for the city of Belle
Glade. I'm a cashier. I'm also a
community advocate. I try my
best in my spare time to assist
anyone in the community that
might need help. I work a lot at
getting things done in the com-
munity.
People gone but not forgotten
was one of my biggest things. All
the good people that were here
that did good things for the com-
munity, they were gone and peo-
ple forgot them. What I did, I
brought this back and I put on a
program at the Drawbridge and
all these people were remem-
bered. Mr. Houston, he was
remembered and his son accept-
ed the award. Mr. Houston was
one of the people who first put on
affordable housing.
W.C. Taylor was one of the
people that was remembered and
his daughter, Lavoise Taylor
received the award.
I assist in turkey give-out. I take
people from their homes to doc-
tors sometimes. Sometimes peo-
ple who don't understand how to
read and write, I assist them to
understand what they have gotten
in the mail. I love people. I love
helping people.
When I was a little girl, I met a
man on a railroad track, and they
u6ed to name him a hobo. Every-


Mattie Harmon


day my mom would cook and I
would take this man food down
the road. It wasn't dangerous
then like it is now. I would take
this man food down there for him
to eat. He had this long, old beard
down his chin and I loved this
man. He was a white guy and I
just loved him and loved him. He
told, "One day, little girl, I'm going
to be gone."
So I went to take him some
food and he was gone. I was 11.
Q: Can You describe yourself?
A: I would think that Mattie
Harmon is a little firm. I would
describe myself as being firm. I
like for things to be done right.
I'm not about wrongdoing
because I've been there and I
would never go back there again.
God has given me a second
chance to do the right thing. I will
not make mistakes of getting
involved in the wrong things.
I'm not ashamed to say this,
there was a time when I was
involved in trouble and I got in
trouble, it was maybe 20 years
ago. I did the wrong thing and I
got mixed up in the wrong things


and got trouble. I promised God
that if I ever cleared up my life, I
would never do it again and I
would never get in trouble.
I work a lot with the teenagers
in the streets. I could be driving
down the street, sometimes it
tickles me, and I see these
teenagers, boy, with their pants
dropped, I can't deal with that.
You can hear them say, -"Here
comes Ms. Mattie, get them up."
I'm not afraid of the kids. I will get
on every street corner and I tell
them, "You know this is wrong."
Q: What do you fear?
A: I've been married quite a
few times. The truth is that mar-
riage, marriage scares me. I am
dating my childhood sweetheart,
Bobby Howard. He was a hand-
some man then, he's an old man
now. He's 67 and I'm 64. Not mar-
riage right now, we probably will
some day later on in life but we're
so happy right now. He believes in
helping people. We're back to the
same idea about things. To tell
you the truth, I'm very happy right
now. I'm happier than I've been
in avery long time.
There's a song that I play all
the time, and it says, "Looking for
love in the all the wrong places." I
will say that some of my mar-
riages never should have been. At
the time, my kids were growing
up and I didn't want my kids to
grow up without someone being
there as a father image, because
their father wasn't there. I know I
got married a couple of times
because of that.
Q: What is your favorite song?
A: "You Better Treat Your
Woman Right." It's cute, it's just
cute and I like it. I think that every
woman should be treated right.
And vice-versa, men too. Men
have feelings and women can


sometimes walk on a man's feel-
ings. I think it goes both ways.
They should treat each other
right.
Q: What irks you?
A: Seeing people act out of the
ordinary, when they can be civi-
lized. To see people get upset and
blow it out of proportion like I
have been. I've been that way.
When I see people get that way, I
think about myself because I used
to be the same way. I say to
myself, "Couldn't they just think
about it." I could have thought
about it.
Q: What memory do you hold
dear?
A: When I had my daughter,
Diane. She was my firstborn. That
was a time that I will never forget.
She was so dear, so tiny and so
dear. I will never forget that. I felt
very grown up, that I had a
daughter, a beautiful daughter. It's
just something that I can't even
tell you how I felt. It was just a
great feeling.
A sad part in my life is when I
lost my 22-year-old daughter. I
lost her at 22. I buried her father,
which was my husband, in March
and she screamed and she said,
"Don't worry dad, I'm coming
with you." I didn't even know she
was sick. She had a brain tumor.,
It was in 1984. She was very
close to me. I used to call her Ra-
Ra. I don't care what she did, she
would always come to tell me,
but she didn't tell me she was
sick. I believe she knew. Her doc-
tor said her tumor was pretty big.
She kept getting headaches. She
died June 5, 1984.
(Q: Do you remember her
often?) Oh, God, yes. Yes I do
remember. It will never go away.
She was very beautiful.


Spotlight on Education


By Kay Zaccagnino
West Area Volunteer Coordinator
School District of Palm Beach
County
Here's something new for you
a weekly column about what's
going on in the Glades area
schools. My goal is to get input
from the community arid the
schools to make this more than
just a boring column about edu-
cation. I want this to be OURS.
Something that belongs to each
and every one of us.
When we read it, we find
names we recognize, something
we can all be proud of, sound off
if there's something going on that
we don't like and have some fun.
There will be questions and
answers. Comments from experts
(and no, I'm not claiming to be
one!), guest writers, and features.
I've got great plans for this little
corner! I hope that I can de-mysti-
fy the public school system for all
of you.
Parents, community mem-
bers, business-owners you're
all going to have to help me. Send
me comments, let me know what
you want from our schools! What
do we want the "perfect student"
to be? Let that be the first ques-
tion to ALL business people. Sur-
vey says: Businesses, if you were
,hiring a student, what are the
three most important skills you
would look for? In addition to
that, let's be honest how
would that student need to pres-
ent him/herself in an interview?
RESPOND BACK TO ME E-
MAIL ME AT
KAZAZZ @AOL.COM.
I'll print the results of that sur-
vey in my next article. Won't that
be interesting? As you all are very


aware, school starts on Wednes-
day, August 10. Most of us have
been busy buying uniforms,
school supplies, shoes, and get-
ting the necessary (ouch!!) shots.
If you've seen the school supply
lists, you know that there's quite a
lot to get.
In one of the poorest areas in
Palm Beach County, we under-
stand we're putting a heavy load
on our students' parents and care-
takers.
Well, Glades General recently
did something to help. They host-
ed a Back-to-School event Tues-
day, Aug. 2 from 4-7p.m., for chil-
dren who will be entering
kindergarten through 5th grade.
At this event, they distributed free
book bags FULL of school sup-
plies! If you weren't able to
attend, you missed some incredi-
ble stuffU
The hospital staff showed the
kids the importance of hand-
washing in the coolest way imagi-
nable! First, they sprayed the
hands of the children with this
glow in the dark stuff, then the
kids washed their hands, then
they checked to see if they did a
good job (in other words, if the
hands glowed, go back to the sink
and try again!) It was WILD! Like
something right out of Crime
Scene Investigation on TV! The
kids could also get a free library
card, get a free scoliosis check
and a gazillion other things, free
of charge.
Glades'General is such a terrif-
ic resource in our community.
Terri Calsetta and all the wonder-
ful, warm people at the hospital
helped put it all together, I have to
say that they all did a terrific job. A
Great Big thanks to them all! This
is just a minor nudge to the other


businesses in the Glades...follow
their lead (wink, wink).
Seriously, giving back doesn't
have to be on that huge of a scale,
but even if you did just a little, it
would make such a huge differ-
ence in our students. Call me, I'll
give you ideas about the thou-
sands of ways you can get
involved without costing a lot of
money. My contact information
will be at the end of this column,
Speaking of school supply
drives, if your organization or
group is having a drive, I'd like to
know, so I can help spread the
word, or help you distribute to a
needy school. Being in the posi-
tion I'm in, I can help! Give me a
call at my office or email me. My
office number is (561) 996-4900,
ext. 44604. My email is
KaZazzl@aol.com or zaccagni-
no@palmbeach.kl2.fl.us.
I need to mention one very
important detail, as you're taking
your students to school and
you've decided you want to vol-
unteer, you will need to register
with the computerized tracking
system. See your school-based
volunteer coordinator and he or
she will help you with the details if
you're not familiar with the com-
puter. Everyone, and there are no
exceptions, has to fill out an
online application. I know it's
time-consuming, but the school
district requires that every person
who spends time on campus as a
volunteer has to be registered. If
you have any questions about
this, I'll be more than happy to
answer those questions for you.
It's mainly for the security and
safety of the students and the
school, also insurance purposes
for the volunteer. It's important,
please don't forget.


This is just the beginning of a
wonderful relationship between
us, folks! Feel free to call in or
write with your questions, com-
ments, complaints or whatever! I
welcome your assistance, your
volunteerism. My goal is to make
this a column that is informative
and entertaining, while serving
the community. Students, I'd love
to hear from you. I want to pub-
lish your writing. I know there's
some promising writers out there,
so let me hear from you, here's
your, chance! Poems, essays,
whatever send 'em in! Let the
people see your talent! It's time
we had a forum that showcases
the brilliance of the students of
the Glades. So my little geniuses,
let your light shine! Thanks every-
one for taking the time to read my
column, next week is going to be
smashing!

The plans I have for this col-
umn will include the entire com-
munity, especially the students. I
promise you will all be able to
read things here that will show
you how advanced our students
are. You'll be able to read com-
ments from our board members,
our superintendent, and our area
superintendent. Write in to me
asking your own questions about
what you want to know, too. I'll
do my best to get the answers that
you want! This is your column,
too! Give me a call at my office
(561) 996-4900, ext 44604 or e-
mail me at KaZazzl@aol.com, or
my office e-mail:
zaccagnino@palmbeach.kl 2.fl.u
s. I look forward to hearing from
you. Let's all work together to
make our schools, and our stu-
dents, the best in the state!

Q: Dear Doc Savvy. How can
you tell when your dog has arthri-
tis? Jessica in Belle Glade.
A: Hey Jessica, that's a very
commonly asked question by
many of my clients! Most dogs,
and humans
too, will even-
tually suffer
from some
form of arthrit-
ic pain as time
goes by. Since
dogs can't tell
us if they are
uncomfortable
we need to be
aware of certain signs. Some of
the things that dogs will do when
they have arthritis is: Acting slow-
er in general, taking a long time
getting up from a good nap, hav-
ing difficulty with going up stairs,
and sometimes limping. The best
thing to do is to talk to your veteri-
narian. I can sometimes feel
arthritis when I palpate a dog. The
biggest help to diagnose arthritis
in a pet is listening to what their
owner has to say about how the
pet has been acting. In either case
I usually recommend anti-inflam-
matory medication. My favorite
one is a product called Metacam.
It is once a day and dogs love the
flavor!
Great question Jessica. Take
care, Doc Savvy.
Q: Dear Doc Savvy. I am wit-
ting to get an opinion. Earlier this


month we applied Frontline on
our Pomeranian dog. I don't think
it's working very well because she
seems to still have fleas. Do you
have any recommendations to
help? Signed, "Please help in
Royal Palm Beach!"
A: Hello there, "Please help in
Royal Palm Beach!" You are not
alone here, so don't worry, there
are a few things you can do. First
of all make sure the shampoo you
use to bathe your dog is compati-
ble with Frontline. It has to be a
soap-free product. Also, keep in
mind that Frontline is not some-
thing that repels fleas, it acts as
something to kill them when they
land on the pet and it is not imme-
diate. It may take several hours for
the fleas to die. There are two
other areas that need to be treated
for proper flea control in the
home, and in the yard. It is very
important to control the fleas in
the complete environment in
order to get good flea control.
Remember we live in one the
biggest flea havens in North
America, so going the extra mile
is imperative. Hope that helps.
Take care, Doc Savvy.
E-mail your pet questions to
DocSavvy@aol.com and check
out your pet answers weekly in

Arrests break up Internet "pill mill" operation Start New Career inYour NewJob Just4weeks!
t rthNewCe Yv oVurew. u st 4 w


MIAMI In Florida's largest
state prosecutions of an organiza-
tion filling Internet orders for con-
trolled drugs, state agents arrested
nine people on charges they oper-
ated unlicensed Internet-based
"pill mills," Attorney General
Charlie Crist and Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement Com-
missioner Guy Tunnell
announced.
The defendants' operation,
one of the first of its kind broken
up in Florida, filled nationwide
orders for powerful painkillers
and other medications without
prescriptions or pharmacists, the
officials said.
The South Florida-based crimi-
nal organization, which allegedly
was headed by Abel Rodriguez of
North Bay Village, is accused of
illegally filling more than $10 mil-
lion worth of Internet drug orders
since late 2003. The vast majority
of the drug distributions were for
the pain killer hydrocodone, but
also included alprazolam, phen-
termine and other prescription
drugs.
More than 650,000 pills, valued
at $.1.9 million, have been seized
by members of a Diversion
Response Team task force.
Authorities have also obtained the
forfeiture of more than $2.2 mil-
lion in cash and property, and the
state Department of Health has
issued emergency orders halting
activities at licensed pharmacies
involved in the operation. The
investigation is continuing.
"Internet pill pushers operate
without regard to the law or med-
ical necessity, and certainly with-
out regard to safety. Their primary
focus is on making a quick buck,"
said Crist. "There is no place in
Florida for these kind of drug deal-
ers, and the Diversion Response
Team has done an outstanding job
of shutting down this operation."
The arrests were the culmina-


tion of "Operation Backroom," a
nine-month investigation by the
Miami-area drug Diversion
Response Team.
The task force included repre-
sentatives of FDLE, the Attorney
General's Medicaid Fraud Control
Unit and Office of Statewide Pros-
ecution, the U.S. Drug Enforce-
ment Administration and the state
Department of Health.
"Operation Backroom is- a
great example of the success that
can come from inter-agency
cooperation," said FDLE Commis-
sioner Tunnell. "By working with
the Attorney General's Office of
Statewide Prosecution, their Med-
icaid Fraud Unit, Florida's Depart-
ment of Health and the federal
Drug Enforcement Administra-
tion, this collaborative effort has
produced results that none of us
could have gained through a sin-
gle, individual effort."
Added DEA Special Agent in
Charge Mark R. Trouville, "Drug
traffickers who pursue their illegal
business via the Internet are no
different than street corner drug
peddlers and DEA, along with
state and local authorities in the
Miami area, consider pharmaceu-
tical drug diversion a priority and
will not tolerate cyber drug traf-
ficking."
The nine suspects were picked
up in early morning sweeps
throughout Miami-Dade County,
and a tenth defendant was being
sought out of state.
Among those arrested were
the organization's alleged ring-
leader, Abel Rodriguez, 48; his
wife, Nuria Rodriguez, 48; the
couple's sons, Erik Abel
Rodriguez, 24, and Kris Abel
Rodriguez, 22; and the organiza-
tion's operations manager, Emilio
Urratia, 53.
Bonds for the 10 defendants
total $51 million. All those arrested
in Miami-Dade were transported


to the Turner Guilford Knight
Detention Center.
Authorities said the group
operated at several licensed and
unlicensed locations throughout
Miami-Dade County to fill Internet
orders that were not accompa-
nied by legitimate prescriptions.
The investigation showed that, for
example, customers paid about
$200 for an order of 60
hydrocodone pills, which the
defendants purchased through
their shell pharmacies for about
$7 from a pharmaceutical whole-
saler. Agents estimate that each of
the operation's locations filled at
least 2,000 orders per week.
"Any practitioner who endan-
gers the health or safety of Floridi-
ans should be fully investigated
and disciplined accordingly," said
Department of Hbalth Deputy Sec-
retary for Health Nancy Humbert.
"DOH is proud to have been a part
of this collaborative effort-to com-
bat criminal activity that puts the
public's health at risk, and we
implore consumers to use the
resources we have in place to veri-
fy the status of their health care
provider's license to ensure they
are receiving quality health care."
The defendants allegedly used
several licensed pharmacies,
including Nuria's La Familia Phar-
macy, JR Pharmacy, K&N Group
and International Latin Medical
Corp., to order and receive large
wholesale shipments of various
medications. The investigation
revealed that several of the phar-
macies never opened for legiti-
mate business and were only
being used as "fronts" or "shell"
businesses to order the medica-
tions.
Once the medications were
received at the various pharma-
cies, they would be shipped to
other locations throughout South
Florida where the pills would be
counted, packaged, labeled and


prepared for distribution.


Some of those addresses were
used on the mailing labels when
the pill packages were taken to
legitimate couriers for shipment to
customers.
Investigators found no valid
prescriptions for filled Internet
orders; in some instances, the
only requirement imposed on the
person requesting the pills was
completion of an Internet ques-
tionnaire. Investigators also said
the defendants who filled the
Internet orders, at- times, used
unsanitary back rooms at the
"shell" businesses to fill the
requests. The defendants were
not licensed pharmacists, nor
were they licensed in the health
care profession. Investigators said
the pill bottles they seized were
not properly labeled.
Conviction for conspiracy to
commit trafficking of 28 grams or
more of hydrocodone carries an
automatic 25-year minimum
mandatory sentence. In addition
to the 10 suspects arrested today
in Miami-Dade County or sought
out of state, another man, Jorge
Luis Salazar, 22, is a fugitive being
sought for arrest. The arrests bring
to 22 the total number of individu-
als who have been arrested in the
case over the course of the investi-
gation, including 12 who were
arrested earlier this year.
Florida's Diversion Response
Teams were formed in July 2004
following legislative authorization.
These teams currently operate
throughout Florida and are based
in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Orlan-
do, Fort Myers, Tampa, Tallahas-
see, Pensacola and Jacksonville.
The goal of the teams is to work
with other state, local and federal
law enforcement and regulatory
agencies to combat crimes con-
nected with the organized diver-
sion of pharmaceutical drugs.


SATOP outreach program has free consultation


Not every company can
afford their own private engineer
and when problems arise and
service is needed the company
ends up paying a pretty penny
for consulting fees. Not so if you
check into Space Alliance Tech-
nical Outreach Program
(SATOP) through the Hendry
County Economic Development
Council (HCEDC).
A contract for 40 hours of free
consulting service between
SATOP and HCEDC is at your dis-
posal. Most problems can be


solved in those 40 hours. Plus,
you end up with your own pri-
vate engineer, or team of'engi-
neers, who work tirelessly t6
help you solve your problem.
For your 40 hours, usually far
quicker, you get your problem
analyzed and the solution identi-
fied. The consultants are scien-
tists who have earned their cre-
dentials working on the NASA
space program over the years
and they take their knowledge to
apply day-to-day technical prob-
lems that all of us confront from


time-to-time. Access to their
broad based technical expertise
is a big plus for us. Don't think of
these scientists as too "High
Tech" for you and don't think
your problem is too insignificant
to address. No problem is too
small for the SATOP team.
SATOP is a state-run aid proj-
ect and has been helping small
business since 1995. The pro-
gram went national in 2001 and
receives over $3 million a year in
funding. The economic impact
of their services is far reaching


and in August of 2004 they
reported that over $134 million
total has impacted the economy
of our nation.
Local businesses like South-
ern DataStream of LaBelle have
taken advantage of this service
and received help solving their
problems. Why not give us a call
today to discuss how you can
take advantage, too.

Fighting Lupus




and promoting


good wil

By Mark Young
CLEWISTON Father John
Dingle, a former Clewiston. minis-
ter, is traveling across the Western
Hemisphere battling the ravages
of Lupus, while promoting good
will between Florida cities and
Brazil.
Father Dingle was recently
granted citizenship in Brazil and
now holds dual citizenship as an
American, allowing him to travel
freely in both countries. As an
emissary of both countries, Father
Dingle is looking for ways to unite
the peoples of America and Brazil.
"I'm looking for something that
bring people together," he said.
"The people of Brazil have no idea
about foreigners. They meet a for-'
eigner and they come up and want
to touch them it's an amazing
sight. I want to bring together sis-
ter to sister, brother, to brother,
church to church."
Father Dingle specifically tries
to bring professionals of America
and professionals of Brazil togeth-
er for an exchange of ideas and
goodwill conversations. He is ask-
ing anyone who may be interested
in chatting with counterparts in
Brazil to e-mail him at fatherd-
ingle@hotmail.com.
What brought Father Dingle to
Brazil was his tireless campaign
against Lupus, a debilitating
immune disease that is almost
impossible to diagnose.
He first came became aware of
the significance of the disease
while ministering inl Puerto Rico
and came across four individual
cases. Father Dingle began to
understand the complexities of the
disease when he contacted med-
ical professionals in the states.
"But over time, I learned that
what we know about Lupus isn't in
the books," Father Dingle
explained. "We were told that
Lupus mostly affects young
women and I was told that we
(America) weren't doing too much
about Lupus. So, I bought a mobile
home and traveled the country."


11 to all

Residents around the lake area
will likely remember Father Din-
gle's mobile home with "Lupus"
written on the side and his efforts
to bring awareness about the dis-
ease to all
those who
came into con-
tact with him.
So, what
brought him
back to the lake
area? i
"I think
most people
probably thing Father John
I've passed H. Dingle
away," he H Dingle
joked. "But I'm
just here to visit a few friends and
try to get the word out that I want
the people of Florida to get to
know the people of Brazil."
Father Dingle's battle against
Lupus is providing invaluable
information for the few medial
researchers who are investigating
the disease. It was previously
thought to strike a selected gender
and age, but through Father Din-
gle's own research, he feels like it
could be more of an environmen-
tal issue.
"I've traveled to different areas
and what I'm finding is that there
are pockets of the disease in cer-
tain areas," he said. "It seems to
strike certain environments and it
strikes men and women, young
and old, red haired or black
haired."
Father Dingle is one of the few
individuals, who are not afflicted
with the disease, who is single-
mindedly focused on probing the
mysteries of Lupus, a disease that
appears to mimic other diseases in
their symptoms, but is often asso-
ciated with extreme fatigue.
Pockets of Lupus exist quite
predominately around the lake
area, according to Father Dingle.
Ongoing research is expected in
establishing the similarities of the
environmental conditions where
these "pockets" or outbreaks
seem to occur.

Submitted to INI/Clewiston Animal Clinic
Kim Fielder, from the Clewiston Animal Clinic, holds the
dreaded Bufo Toad, a frog, which carries enough toxins that
can kill a small animal.



Keep pets away




from dreaded




Bufo Frogs


By Kim Fielder
After a phone call was
answered at the Clewiston Animal
Clinic, regarding a puppy that may
have come into contact with a large
frog in a small kiddy pool, we made
a trip to the house to find an
extremely poisonous cane toad
(Bufo Marinus). Luckily the puppy
hadn't come in close enough con-
tact with the toad.
When we got back to the CAC,
the doctors that were present
described to us that it's the largest
of Florida frogs and toads. When
this non-native species is threat-
ened, it secretes a highly toxic,
milky substance from its large
glands in the back of the head. This
secretion can kill cats and dogs if
they ingest it.
These toads became abundant


in our area during the rainy sum-
mer months when. pets seem
exceptionally attracted to these
.slow hopping creatures, especially
at dusk. When your pet grasps or
licks the toad, it causes the toxin to
be secreted into their mouth where
it absorbs through their gums and
stomach lining..

Death can occur as fast as 15
minutes, if left untreated. Symp-
toms of a poisoned pet vary due to
size and the amount of toxin
absorbed.
If you think your animal has
come into contact with one of
these toads at any time, call your
veterinarian immediately and rinse
your pet's mouth out with water,
but make sure not to squirt water
directly down the throat and nose.

Glades kids prepare


to go back
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE With just a
few days left until the end of the
summer and the start of school, the
Glades area prepares to go back to
school.
Signs that both students and
parents are preparing for the new
school year can be seen at either
the packed stores in the area that
feature back-to-school sales or the
excitement of schoolchildren
savoring the last few days of their
summer vacations.
The big day is Aug. 10. That's
when the 6,600.students served in
the Glades by the West Area
branch of the Palm Beach County
District will return to school follow-
ing their summer vacations. .
Schoolteachers are also coming
back, getting their lesson plans in


to school
order and hoping to make an
impact on a whole new set of stu-
dents this year.
The West Area branch is
responsible for 10 schools in the
area, with 43 additional schools
further east. It is run by Dr. Janis
Andrews, superintendent for the
West Area, who serves under Dr.
Art Johnson, School District of
Palm Beach County superintend-
ent.
The first day of school is
arguably one of the two most
memorized school-related dates
among. school-aged children in
Palm Beach County. That, and May
31 which will be the last day of
school next year. From now until
both of those dates, teachers and
students prepare for another event-
fulyear.


Children throughout Palm
Beach County will be returning
to school during the month of
August, and once again school-
crossing guards from the sher-
iff's office will be at Elementary
and Middle Schools to help
ensure their safety.
No child is safe walking to and
from school if thoughtless drivers
persist in speeding and driving
recklessly. Florida law sets the
speed limit around schools at 20


mph, yet many drivers ignore the
signs and continue to drive at
excessive speeds, putting all chil-
dren in danger.
Deputies will be stationed
around schools to ensure that
the laws in school zones are
obeyed. They will be aggressively
enforcing the 20 mph limit.
Florida law protects children
as they get on and off their
school bus. A driver may not pass
a stopped school bus, but must


stop and wait until the bus gets
underway. Be forewarned that
enforcement will be vigorous
and fines are automatically dou-
bled for school zone violations.
Parents need to ensure that
every child under the age of 16 is
wearing a properly fitted and
secured helmet when riding a
bicycle. Deputies and school
crossing guards may issue a bicy-
cle safety brochure and a verbal
warning to bicycle riders who


violate this law. Deputies may
also issue a citation to the viola-
tor.
The Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office School Guards do a
fine job, and too often it is a
thankless job. Parents and neigh-
bors remember to thank them
occasionally and instruct your
children that the guards are there
for their safety.

Two arrested for poaching gators


NAPLES Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion officers arrested two Heritage
Greens Golf Club maintenance
workers for cruelty to animals and
unlawful possession/taking of alli-
gator, both third degree felonies.
Arrested were Mark J. Metzger
(DOB 05-04-1971) and Fred J.
Rowe (DOB 07-21-1963), and
each could face up to five years in
jail and/or up to a $5,000 fine for
each charge.
FWC officers received a July 3


report of a stolen "live capture alli-
gator trap" and alligator from a
pond at the golf club. During the
investigation, both suspects
admitted to tampering with a nui-
sance wildlife trapper's equip-
ment, dragging the seven-foot alli-
gator approximately one-half mile
behind a golf cart to the mainte-
nance facility, and using a fillet
knife to remove the animal's tail
and other meat. Both men also
admitted that the alligator was
alive, but died while being


dragged to the maintenance facili-
ty.
The arrest,went without inci-
dent and both men cooperated
during the investigation.
These arrests follow the July 22
arrest of a Charlotte County cou-
ple for deliberately feeding an alli-
gator, a second-degree 'misde-
meanor. Anyone having
information about the feeding of
alligators is urged to report the
incident to the toll free Wildlife
Alert Hotline at (888) 404-3922.


Those reporting violations may
remain anonymous and be eligi-
ble for a reward.
The FWC recommends
observing alligators from a dis-
tance. Information on how to live
with alligators is listed in the
FWC's "Living with Alligators"
brochure found online at
MyFWC.com/gators.
Nuisance alligators should be
reported to the FWC by calling toll
free (866) FWC-GATOR, (866)
392-4286.


Hot temperatures cause health problems


By MaryAnn Morris
The heat has been hovering at
the 90-plus-degree mark and the
heat index is reportedly 110.
"We ha e treated 66 percent
more heat victims in the past two
weeks," said Hendry Regional
Medical Center Director of Mar-
keting Rodney Larson.
According to the Center for
Disease Control (CDC), exposure
to excessive heat (10 degrees
higher than the normal average)
working outdoors in higher tem-
peratures that you are used to can
make you sick. Heat stroke, left
untreated can cause death and
heat exhaustion left untreated can
lead to heat stroke. If you get heat
cramps, you'll have to stop what
you're trying so hard to get done
while you take steps to relieve the
symptoms.
To avoid these problems, wear
loose, lightweight, light-colored
clothes, wear a broad-brimmed
hat, work early in the morning or
early in the evening. Drink two to
four glasses of water every hour.
Take it slow and stop periodically
to rest and cool off. Listen to your
body. Be aware of the following
symptoms and know what to do if
you experience one or all of them.
Warning signs of HEAT
STROKE vary but may include the
following:
*An extremely high body tem-
perature (above 103iF, orally)
Red, hot, and dry skin (no
sweating)
Rapid, strong pulse
Throbbing headache
Dizziness
Nausea
Confusion


Unconsciousness
Heat stroke occurs when the
body is unable to regulate its tem-
perature. The body's temperature
rises rapidly, the sweating mecha-
nism fails, and the body is unable
to cool down. Body temperature
may rise to 106iF or higher within
10 to 15 minutes. Heat stroke can
cause death or permanent disabil-
ity if emergency treatment is not
provided.
WHAT TO DO If you see
any of these signs, have someone
call for immediate medical assis-
tance while you begin cooling the
victim. Do the following:
Get the victim to a shady
area.
Cool the victim rapidly using
whatever methods you can. For
example, immerse the victim in a
tub of cool water; place the per-
son in a cool shower; spray the
victim with cool water from a gar-
den hose; sponge the person with
cool water; or if the humidity is
low, wrap the victim in a cool, wet
sheet and fan him or her vigor-
ously.
Monitor body temperature,
and continue cooling efforts until
the body temperature drops to
101-102iF.
If emergency medical per-
sonnel are delayed, call the hospi-
tal emergency room for further
instructions.
Do not give the victim fluids
to drink.
Get medical assistance as
soon as possible.
Sometimes a victim's muscles
will begin uncontrollably as a
result of heat stroke. If this hap-
pens, keep the victim from injur-


ing himself, but do not place any
object in the mouth and do not
give fluids. If there is vomiting,
make sure the airway remains
open by turning the victimnon his
or her side.
HEAT EXHAUSTION is a
milder form of heat-related illness
that can develop after several days
of exposure to high temperatures
and inadequate or unbalanced
replacement of fluids. It is the
body's response to losing too
much of the water and salt con-
tained in sweat.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
*Heavy sweating
*Paleness
*Muscle cramps
*Tiredness
*Weakness
*Dizziness
*Headache
*Nausea or vomiting
*Fainting
The skin may be cool and
moist. The victim's pulse rate will
be fast and weak, and breathing
will be fast and shallow. If heat
exhaustion is untreated, it may
progress to heat stroke. Seek
medical attention immediately if
any of the following occurs:
*Symptoms are severe.
*The victim has heart prob-
lems or high blood pressure.
Otherwise, help the victim to
cool off, and seek medical atten-
tion if symptoms worsen or last
longer than one hour.
WHAT TO DO: Cooling meas-
ures that may be effective include
the following: ,
Cool, nonalcoholic bever-
ages, as directed by your physi-
cian.


Rest
Cool shower, bath, or
sponge bath
-* An air-conditioned--environ-
ment
Lightweight clothing
HEAT CRAMPS usually affect
people who sweat a lot during
strenuous activity. This sweating
depletes the body's salt and mois-
ture. The low salt level in the mus-
cles causes painful cramps. Heat
cramps may also be a symptom
of heat exhaustion.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR: Heat
cramps are muscle pains or
spasms usually in the
abdomen, arms, or legs- that
may occur in association with
strenuous activity. If you have
heart problems or are on a low-
sodium diet, get medical attention
for heat cramps.
WHAT TO DO: If medical
attention is not necessary, take
these steps:
Stop all activity, and sit quiet-
ly in a cool place.
Drink clear juice or a sports
beverage.
Do not return to strenuous
activity for a few hours after the
cramps subside, because further
exertion may lead to heat exhaus-
tion or heat stroke. Seek medical
attention for heat cramps if they
do not subside in one hour.

Fire
Continued From Page 1
posed of the three fire departments
in Belle Glade, Pahokee and South
Bay combining to meet the new
standards. Months after those talks
began, none of the three cities have
committed anything definite
toward the plan.
At last week's July 26 city meet-
ing, the city was given a presenta-
tion on its three options. City Man-
ager Lillie Latimore explained that
the city may either choose to
remain a standalone municipal fire
department, join the regional fire
rescue concept in a tri-city partner-
ship, or merge with Palm Beach
County Fire Rescue.
Going at it alone, Ms. Latimore
explained, means hiring one med-
ical director, five firefighters and 12
additional paramedics, an option
that would be taxing for residents
and the city. Currently, the city's fire
budget is approximately $900,000,
with the county putting up
$500,000 and the city paying for the
remaining $300,000. The city's fig-
ure would almost assuredly go
higher.
The regional fire department
would have to make use of the
Glades Municipal Service Taxing
Unit district that would share its
cost among residents in all three
cities and in the unincorporated
areas. The startup cost for that
route is $9 million, firefighters esti-


mated.
The third option, merging with
the county's fire rescue depart-
ment, means that the local fire
department would qualify for the
funding provided under the coun-
ty's own municipal service taxing
unit
That option enables the local
department to receive 100-percent
funding from the county. Rather
than seeing a rise in costs that
would have been necessary under
the first two options, the city will
instead see the savings of its por-
tion of the current budget,
$300,000 annually. Firefighters said
the department would not incur
costs for startup or its annual oper-
ating cost.
According to Ms. Latimore, the
city faces a deadline in its decision.
If the city is interested in the con-
cept of merging with the county, it
has until September to notify the
county for inclusion in the county's
next operating budget cycle. "They
really want a decision by Septem-
ber," she said.
Before the city makes a deci-
sion, though, it is interested in see-
ing what Belle Glade and South Bay
will be doing in regards to the mat-
ter. Neither Belle Glade nor South
Bay have publicly said what they
intend to do in the coming months
and planning in the municipalities'
administration continues. If there is
not a resolution soon, the item is
expected to come up at a future'
meeting of the tri-cities.


Commissioner Lends A

Hand with Public Art Project
County Commission Chairman Tony Masilotti stopped by'
the Boys & Girls Club Teen Center in Belle Glade on July
27 to help a group of young artists prepare tile mosaics
for the West County Courthouse Public Art Project. Over-
seeing their progress (standing) is commissioned artist
Shanon Materio. The tile artwork will be installed in a
decorative walkway at the courthouse.

ers with overgrown lots will be
given 10 days from the date of
their initial warning from the city
to clean up their property. If after
10 days the issue remains unre-
solved, city officials will then
contact the company, Mullings
Engineering Services, Inc. for
property maintenance.
Mullings will have the author-
ity to mow and trim properties in
violation of code, and will also
handle lot clearing, trash dispos-
al and tree removal.
After the services, the city will
be responsible for making pay-
ment to the company for the
services, though the city in turn
will bill the individual property
owners for the work. According
to Ms. Latimore, aside from the
cost of the work, the city will
charge an extra amount to cover
administrative expenses. She
expects that the final amount
charged to homeowners will be
at least double the cost of the
work itself.
It is the latest effort of the city
to crack down on code enforce-
ment violators. With lots
throughout different neighbor-
hoods plagued by a number of
issues, and some of them
remaining unresolved even at
the threat of fines being imposed
on its owners, getting a private
company to do the work and
then charging the owner, the city
officials hope, will serve as a
more pressing deterrent for bad
upkeep.
Of course, talk of how the
services provided by the compa-
ny would be paid for quickly
took over the conversation..
What are the city's options if a
homeowner is unwilling to pay
for the services, Vice Mayor
Keith Babb asked, and the city
finds itself in a position of grow-
ing debt with the company?
Placing liens on properties,
City Attorney Lynn Whitfield
explained, just draws the
process out and additional costs
are incurred, including legal fees
and court costs, The city attor-
ney suggested the city discuss
the issue prior to making any
final decision and briefly dis-
cussed the possibility of adding
the cost of the service to each
customer's water bill as one
option.
The city commission post-
poned a resolution awarding the
bid to Mullings for a chance to
discuss the issue. It will come up
again at a future city meeting for
final approval.
"I'd be a little more comfort-
able adopting a game plan
before we adopt this," said
Mayor J.P. Sasser. "I don't want
us to get stuck with the bill, and
in the past, we've gotten stuck
with the bill."


Shooting

shooting, members of the other
family chased down several of
Lee's cousins and shot at them
too, though no one was injured in
that shooting.
Wimberly's family agreed and
took him to the police station.
Wimberly was arrested, facing
the charges of attempted felony
murder, shooting into an occu-
pied dwelling, possession of a
firearm by a convicted felon and
discharging a firearm in public.


Continued From Page 1
refused to press charges.
At the work place, however,
there are two reports outlining
incidents at city hall. In one,
dated Nov. 22, 2004, Charles
Inman confronts his wife, Buffy
Inman, also an employee of the
city, at her office and refuses to
leave, asking for her wedding
ring back.
With police intervention,
nothing further occurred and
Charles left without incident.
The report, filed by Officer B.
Rich of the South Bay Police
Department, alleges that prior to
the involvement of the police,
Charles "started walking back
toward her like he wanted tor hit
her."
The second incident, dated,
June 6, resulted in both Charles
and his wife getting suspended
for "conduct unbecoming,"
according to City Manager
-Smith.
Lieutenant Leonardo Bailum,
who handled the investigation,
filed a report. "It was explained
to this officer that Charles and
Roneshia (Buffy) Inman were in
physical altercation, which
resulted in office furniture being
turned over," the report read.
"Witnesses state that they
observed Roneshia Inman on
the ground, with Charles stand-
ing a few feet away."
No witnesses came forward
who saw the fight, only one who
heard the scuffle. It wasn't
enough for an arrest, Chief Mor-
ris explained.
The report goes on to say
that, after Charles was ques-
tioned by City Manager Smith as
to what had occurred, a verbal
confrontation between the two
ensued. "During the argument,
Mr. Smith asked for Charles' res-
ignation, at which time Charles
responded by telling Mr. Smith

he could have his resignation
and that he [Mr. Smith] would
need to be careful on his way
home," the report read.
According to Chief Morris, it
was a witness who overheard
the alleged threat, and not Mr.
Smith himself. Since he did not
hear it himself, Mr. Smith chose
not to pursue the issue, but
shortly thereafter suspended
both Charles and his wife.
Time and again, it was the
lack of cooperation on the part
of witnesses to the scuffles who,
even after providing an initial
comment on what had
occurred, later changed their
minds and did not go on record
supporting their initial claims. It
has made it all the more difficult
to curb such activity, Chief Mor-
ris and City Manager Smith
agreed.
As a last resort and without
the ability to make arrests, both
Chief Morris and City Manager
Smith have personally tried to
help both parties to resolve their
differences and seek help,
including offering counseling to
alleviate the conflict, they said.
According to City Manager
Smith, Mr. Inman had been tak-
ing anger management classes
prior to the July 4 incident that
resulted in his arrest in Belle
Glade on the charge of aggravat-
ed battery against his wife.
Police Chief Albert Dowdell,
who it was said also had knowl-
edge of the disputes, said he
never saw the two in a physical
altercation. His role was more as
a personal friend to the two, he
said.


"When it comes to people's
safety, it is paramount," said
Chief Dowdell, who denied the
accusation that he knew of the
violence and did nothing to stop
it. "They [couple] asked me to
talk to them," as a personal
friend to both. "When I left,
there was no hint of violence
continuing," he said. "They


know that if they called the
police, both of them would have
gone to jail. Sometimes, their
heart is involved and not their
head," he said.
In his defense, Charles Inman
denies having been involved in
physical altercations at city hall
and points to the lack of witness-
es as proof of that statement.
"It's my word against theirs,"
he said last week. Responding to
the threat he allegedly made to
his boss, he said, "Why would
he [Mr. Smith] let me work here
still?" he said, denying he made
the threat. "It doesn't make any
sense." He said Mr. Smith has
offered encouraging words to
both him and his wife and said
Mr. Smith is "like my dad."
Mr. Inman accepts the fact
that he has had problems in his
personal life, but said that the
problems have never affected
his professional career or'inter-
fered with his position in city
hall.
"I think I do too much for the
community," he said. Regarding
his July 4 arrest, he said, "What
happened at home, domestic
violence, whatever you want to
call it, it happened at home. It's
a good story, but it doesn't
involve the city."
Charles said he and his wife
would work out their differ-
ences.
In the meantime, Chief Mor-
ris and City Manager Smith say
they will be keeping a close eye
on the matter.
The two say they are
adamantly committed to their
jobs and would not jeopardize
their employment in order to
coordinate a cover up.
"I'm not losing my job for
anybody," Chief Morris. said
.sternly. "When it comes to busi-
ness, I'll arrest Mr. Smith," he
said.
"If it's business, I'll fire Chief
Morris," added Mr. Smith.

Jupiter youth group on a mission


BELLE GLADE Four middle
school youth and two adults from
First United Methodist Church in
Jupiter recently completed a mis-
sion trip where they spent two days
helping hurricane victims in Belle
Glade. The youth were Will Twee-
die and Derek Parchesco of
Tequesta, Kevin Kiger and Rebecca
Weischman of Jupiter. Chaperon-
ing were David Parzek, youth
group volunteer, and Katie Gilson,
a Florida Southern College student
interning at First United Methodist
Church.
Gilson arranged the mission trip
through C.R.O.S. (Christians
Reaching Out to Society) Ministries
and the Palm Beach County Long-
Term Recovery Coalition. The
Coalition consists of 28 community
leaders, nonprofit organizations,
business, government, and inter-
faith groups that are working
together and combining resources
in order to help rebuild Palm Beach
County and homes damaged by
Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne in
2004.
The youth group spent a day
and a half applying Kool Seal on
the roof of a mobile home dam-
aged by the hurricanes. The white
seal will stop the roof from leaking
so that damaged walls inside the
home can be repaired. The second
hurricane-related project involved
caulking the windows of another
home damaged by the hurricanes.
The youth group spent an addi-
tional two days of their mission trip
serving food and completing a
painting project at Lighthouse
Caf, a soup kitchen in Belle Glade,
and completing projects at Com-
munity Methodist Church in Belle
Glade. Community Methodist
Church provided the group with

Oriental pioneers and a tradition of hospitality


By MaiyAnn Morris
Information for this article was
taken from an article by Beryl Bow-
den, which originally appeared in
the Clewiston News Sept 26, 1983.
Mrs. Bowden was one of the
founders of the Clewiston Muse-
um.
CLEWISTON -- During the
1920s a petite Japanese woman
won the hearts of early Clewiston
settlers. Her story is dear to the his-
tory of that town.
Clewiston, then known as
"Sand Point," was settled by a
group of Japanese farmers in 1915.
They came by boat up the New
-River Canal from Fort Lauderdale
to Ritta Island, and then walked the
wilderness up the shore of Lake
Okeechobee to Sand Point. Mr. and
Mrs. S. Watanabe, who came to be
known as "Papa" and "Madam"
Watanabe were among them.
They lived in a cabin among the
custard apple trees along the ridge
near the O'Brien's home site.
When the O'Briens came to
Clewiston they were surprised to
find someone already there. The
Watanabes had been vegetable
farming in the area for six years
with the other Japanese families.
But most of the others had moved
back, giving in to the wet season
and slow boat shipping for their
vegetables. This left the Watanabes
and one other couple, Albert and
AnnaTokieda.
You might think it odd that
Japanese farmers would be found
in South Florida back then, but it
reallywasn't unusual.
Joseph Sakai, a Japanese citi-
zen, had been educated in Ameri-
ca. He thought to relieve the
crowded living conditions in his
homeland by recruiting Japanese
farmers to come to America. His
ideas were approved from then
Florida governor William Jennings
and leading businessmen. The
Yamato community, including
George Morikami came into being
south of Delray Beach in Palm
Beach County around the same
time.
The Watanabes welcomed the
O'Briens and gladly went to work
running the O'Briens' home.
A frame building was complet-
ed to house a hotel upstairs and a
store and dining room downstairs.
At the O'Briens' request, the
Watanabes operated it. Their
name, uncommon in America,
had a "Hiawatha" lilt to it, so when
the hotel was named the "Watan-
abe Hotel" many people thought it
was an Indian name.
Papa Watanabe was in charge
of the kitchen and Madame was
the greeter and housekeeper. Her
smiling welcome and cheerful face
helped many newcomers adjust to
the otherwise rough lifestyle of
these early days.
Viola Owen arrived with a two-
month and two-year-old sons to
dirt paths and jungle vegetation,
she cried, as many women did
when faced with the task of mak-
ing a home and having very little to
workwith!
"Madame is looking forward to
meeting you and she has made a
special dinner for you," her hus-
band told her.
Three Clewiston ladies, teenage
girls at the time, remember wait-
ressing for Madame at the hotel.
They remember her absolute
cleanliness, energy and her talent
for flower arrangement. Madame
had flowers everywhere: Yellow

lotus and wild periwinkle, which
Madame could arrange just so to
make a beautiful arrangement
from a lowly weed. Today, the girls,
now grown women, remember
the free course in Japanese flower
arranging they could have had. As
teenagers they weren't the least
interested.
Madame loved company and
would invite some of the wives in
for afternoon tea, serving in the
small Japanese cups without han-
dles. Sometimes she would have a
small gift from Japan for each
guest.
After the hurricane of Septem-
ber 1926, Clewiston had damage,
but no loss of life. In Moore Haven
200 people had drowned. Many
were friends of people in Clewis-


ton. By December people in the
lake area were worn out from all
the cleanup and loss.
Papa and Madame Watanabe
invited everyone up and down the
lakeshore to come to a party at the
hotel in December. Everyone
came. The hotel was crowded;
Madame had decorated with her
artistic flair, using small tree
branches, paper flowers, her
Japanese lanterns and some lovely
tapestries from her homeland. The
place sparkled!
They served dinner at ten o
clock and had an orchestra come
from Fort Myers for dancing. The
party and the kindness with which
it was given lifted the deepest
gloom and helped life return to
normal. The coming years were
prosperous, but the Watanabes
were homesick.
They had been away from
Japan for a long time and had an
80-year-old mother and two grand-
children they had never seen.
There was a farewell party for them
at the hotel with Elbert Stewart and
F.L. Williamson as spokesmen to
wish them a safe trip and present
them with a matched set of lug-
gage from their many friends in

Several letters were exchanged,
over the coming years, the last
from Papa Watanabe saying
Madame's health was very poor,
but he himself was well and they
missed their friends in America and
that was the last known word from
this very delightful pioneer couple.

Popular Okeechobee


boat ramp at heart


of controversy
By Loma Jablonski that the state had approached the
Okeechobee News county about purchasing it, but
the county had declined due to


OKEECHOBEE Residents of
Taylor Creek Lodge once again
asked the Board of County Com-
missioners July 28 for assistance
in resolving some of the issues at
Taylor Creek Lodge.
Billy Hesch, a homeowner at
the Lodge, had broached the
issue of lack of access to the Flori-
da Scenic Trail that runs around
Lake Okeechobee on top of the
dike and the closing of the boat
ramp at Taylor Creek at the last
County Commission meeting on
July 14. At that time she asked the
commission to check into the
legality of the new owners of the
Lodge, Taylor Creek Resort RV
Park LLC, being able to close off
access to the popular Trail. At that
meeting, the BOCC asked County
Attorney John Cassels to check
into the matter and prepare a
report for them.
Ms. Hesch had requested that
she be able to speak of other con-
cerns at the park at the next meet-
ing.
The BOCC met last Thursday.
Ms. Hesch and other concerned
homeowners in Taylor Creek
Lodge were in attendance at this
meeting.
Ms. Hesch again addressed the
issue of the lack of access to the
Scenic Trail. Ms. Hesch explained
that the homeowners had been in
contact with Jena Brooks, direc-
tor of the Office of Greenways &
Trails, Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection in Tallahas-
see, regarding the lack of access
to the trail. In an e-mail from Ms.
Brooks, she stated that she was
not aware of this situation and
would look into it. Ms. Brooks
also stated that the Army Corps of
Engineers managed the trail
through an agreement with her
department.
Mr. Cassels gave the board
some of the background concern-
ing the property including the fact


various issues surrounding the
possible purchase. At that point
Commissioner Posey requested a
clear and concise explanation as
to why the county did not pur-
chase the property.
There was a lengthy discus-
sion by the commissioners with
Mr. Cassels about what could be
done to rectify the situation. Mr.
Cassels made several suggestions
including the possibility of negoti-
ating with the new owner for
emergency access.
Commissioner Betts suggested
that the county look into the pos-
sibility of placing a boat ramp on
the property where the old sewer
plant stands on S.E. 5th Ave. He
stated that this would give the
community access to Taylor
Creek. But, a consensus of opin-
ion was that just providing access
to Taylor Creek was not the issue.
Anglers liked the location of the
old boat ramp at Taylor Creek
because of its proximity to the
lock and direct access to the lake.
The board authorized Mr. Cas-
sels to continue investigating the
issue.
Ms. Hesch also explained to
the commissioners that those res-
idents able to move their homes
from the park had to wait 30 or
more days for permits. She asked
if anything could be done to
speed up the process.
The commissioners explained
to her that the building depart-
ment had been inundated with
permit applications and were
working as quickly as possible to
meet the needs of everyone in the
community.
Many of the residents left the
meeting with no sense of resolu-
tion. Others felt that headway had
been made and stated that they
would continue to fight for their
homes up to the time that they
were forced to leave.

4-H members excel at 4-H Congress


By Sonja Crawford
More than 400 4-H youth, ages
13-18, were able to get a taste of
college life by participating in the
2005 Florida 4-H Congress held at
the University of Florida on July 25-
29. This fabulous week enabled
many 4-H members to learn and
share with other 4-H'ers across
Florida.
Congress is divided into com-
petitive and non-competitive ses-
sions. The non-competitive portion
is devoted to educational/leader-
ship workshops addressing the
interest of Florida's youth including
animal science, individual and
family resources, plant science,
environmental education, citizen-
ship and leadership, communica-
tion arts as well as science and
'technology.
The competitive portion of Con-
gress is where the first place senior
District winners compete against
other county District winners in a
variety of events, such as fashion
revue, demonstrations/illustrated
talks, and public speaking. County
4-H Judging teams participate with


other teams across the state in vari-
ous judging contests. Furthermore,
interviews for State Recognition
and Scholarships are also conduct-
ed during this event.
Three 4-H members from
Hendry County participated in this
weeklong program. The attendees
were Jessica Bechtel, Jaydee Hull
and Morgan Musgrave. Jaydee
competed in the Fashion Revue
event where she captured the first
place trophy in the School/Infor-
mal Wear category. The fashion
revue event consists of clothing
construction and clothing selec-
tion.
In each of the divisions, there
are five categories: Dressed for
work, special occasion, my choice,
active sports wear, and
school/informal wear. Jessica and
Morgan attended Congress as vot-
ing delegates.
All of the members had an
opportunitylto learn, grow, and test
their abilities as they participated in
the educational programs and
competitive events throughout the
week..,

Florida employment/unemployment report for June 2005


The state's seasonally adjusted
June 2005 unemployment rate
was 3.9 percent, down from the
revised rate of 4:1 percent in May
and down 0.9 percentage point
from 4.8 percent a year ago. Flori-
da's June 2005 unemployment
rate was the lowest experienced
by the state since December 2000.
Florida's seasonally adjusted
unemployment rate for June 2005
was over a full percentage point
-lower than the national rate of 5.0


percent.
In June 2005, seasonally
adjusted nonagricultural employ-
ment grew by 228,100 jobs over
the year, growing at 3.0 percent,
nearly twice the national rate. By
comparison, the national rate of
growth was 1.6 percent for the
same period.
The state continued to see the
rate of growth exceed other com-
parable states. Based on data from
May 2005, the latest month for


which comparable data are avail-
able from other states, Florida had
the fastest rate of annual job
growth among the 10 most popu-
lous states.
Solid growth continued in
manufacturing's durable goods
sector, which gained 5,400 jobs
(+2.1 percent) since last June.
Much of the growth in durable
goods was in transportation
equipment manufacturing
(+2,000 jobs, +4.8 percent).


Overall, manufacturing gained
3,200 jobs over the year.
The Orlando MSA led the state
in employment growth (+39,500
jobs, +4.1 percent), followed by
the Miami-Ft. Lauderdale-Miami
Beach MSA Orlando and Tampa-
St. Petersburg-Clearwater MSAs
with over-the-year job growth in
June 2005 of +37,300 jobs and
+32,600 jobs, respectively.
NOTE: There is an unusual
drop in local government employ-


ment in Florida when comparing
June of this year to June 2004. The
reason for this decline is that pub-
lic schools in Broward and Miami-
Dade Counties closed earlier this
year, so the drop in local govern-
ment employment that occurred
in those areas in July in past years
is reflected in the estimates a
month earlier.
Similarly, since schools in
those areas will be back in session
in August rather than September


as they have in the past, there will
be an unusually large over-the-
year increase in August. This is not
considered an economic change
since it is being caused by the shift
in the school calendar. All other
counties in the state already fol-
low the earlier opening and clos-
ing schedule, so the seasonal pat-
tern in Broward and Miami-Dade
Counties is now consistent with
other Florida counties.


Crist announces new consumer protection tool


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist announced
the creation of a new tool designed
to provide consumers with imme-
diate updates on fraud protection
measures. Through the new Con-
sumer Alerts service, citizens can
subscribe to an electronic notifica-
tion network and receive fraud
warnings directly as they are
announced.
"In a world of rapidly changing
technology, criminals are constant-
ly coming up with newways to pull


off old scams," said Crist. "This
new service lets us fight fire with
fire by using the latest in technolo-
gy to help consumers stay fully
informed on threats to their finan-
cial well being."
By subscribing to the Consumer
Alerts service, citizens add their e-
mail address to a list of individuals
who will receive instantaneous
notification whenever the Attorney
General's Office issues a warning
or notice to consumers. Consumer
notices are also posted to the attor-


ney general's Web site, but prior to
the introduction of the new service
were not otherwise delivered
directly to consumers.
Citizens may subscribe to Con-
sumer Alerts by visiting the attor-
ney general's Web site at
http://myfloridalegal!com and
clicking on the red "Subscribe to
the Attorney General's Electronic
Newsletter and 'Consumer
Updates" link at the top of the
page. That link also offers the
opportunity for citizens to sign up


for other subscription services
available to the public, including
the attorney general's weekly elec-
tronic newsletter news briefs and
the semi-monthly consumer news
publication Consumer Bulletin.
The Consumer Alerts service is
the latest addition to anti-fraud activi-
ties by the Attorney General's Office.
Since January 2003, the office has
operated a toll-free fraud hotline at 1-
866-NO-SCAM (1-866-966-7226),
which to date has handled more
than 148,000 consumer calls.


Prescription drug settlements to deliver widespread relief


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist announced
that more than $2.5 million in
checks are now on their way to
Florida consumers and public
agencies from two prescription
drug settlements reached by his
office. More than 5,600 individual
Floridians who overpaid for the
common heart medication
Caridzem CD should begin receiv-
ing their checks.
The checks mailed to con-
sumers come as part of the
Cardizem CD settlement, reached
in January 2003 to resolve antitrust
claims against Aventis Pharmaceu-
ticals, Inc., Andrx Corporation and


affiliated entities.
Florida consumers who previ-
ously submitted valid claims will
share $1.95 million in restitution to
cover amounts they overpaid for
the medication. The settlement
represents the third highest con-
sumer recovery ever among Flori-
da pharmaceutical antitrust cases
in which restitution has been made
to consumers. Based on the num-
ber of claims received from resi-
dents, Florida will receive more for
consumer restitution than any
other state.
"Obviously, when Floridians are
able to get back money they over-
paid for necessary'medical care, it's a


good day in the state of Florida," said
Crist. "These settlements will help us
keep our citizens in good health
while easing undue financial stress."
A separate settlement, involving
the anti-inflammatory drug Relafen,
was reached in February between
the Attorney General's Office and
SmithKline Beecham Corporation
and SmithKline Beecham, Plc. The
settlement resolved allegations that
public entities overpaid for medica-
tions because SmithKline's conduct
prevented a .low-priced generic
equivalent of Relafen from being
available.
Florida taxpayers will recover
$597,000 to make up for over-


charges paid by the state's Medic-
aid program and other state and
local public health entities.
Attorney General Crist has also
filed a claim for more than
$480,000 from a private class action
settlement to reimburse the state
for purchases it made on behalf of
government employees. Attorney
General's Offices in Florida, Mary-
land and New York negotiated the
settlement on behalf of all 50 states,
as well as the District of Columbia
and U.S. territories.
Since 2003, the Attorney Gener-
al's Antitrust Division has produced
close to $37 million in recoveries in
antitrust lawsuits.


Businesses should be

wary of out-of-state

compliance notices


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist issued a
warning to Florida consumers,
particularly business owners,
alerting them to a new trend in
deceptive marketing practices.
Some out-of-state companies
have recently targeted Florida
businesses in a bid to sell servic-
es purportedly designed to help
them comply with legal require-
ments in Florida. These services,
which often are offered in offi-
cial-looking solicitations, are
often unnecessary or can be
completed for free elsewhere.
"The most important thing
for Florida consumers is to be
aware that these scams exist,"
said Crist. "These companies
masquerade as government
agencies to deceive Florida busi-
nesses that wish to comply with
the law. Anyone receiving these
demands should report them
immediately."
Over the past several months,
the Attorney General's Office has
received numerous complaints


against several of these compa-
nies. Last week the attorney gen-
eral settled a lawsuit against one
such company, Corporate Com-
pliance Center, over allegations
that the company misled Florida
businesses relating to the sale of
corporate minutes reports. 'Two
other companies, Corporate
Minutes Compliance Service
and Corporate Minute Services,
were prevented from operating
in Florida when the Attorney
General's Office threatened liti-
gation.
Crist advised consumers to
examine all notices carefully,
especially those that come' from
outside the state and offer fee-
based services to comply with
Florida laws. Businesses and
individual consumers are
advised to check with the Florida
Department of State if they sus-
pect a notice they received is not
from official sources. The attor-
ney general's Fraud Hotline is 1-
866-9-NO-SCAM (1-866-966-
7226).

Senator blasts FEMA for denying residents help


WASHINGTON, D.C. Pan-
handle residents wrongly are being
denied federal disaster assistance
for certain expenses they incurred
in preparation for Hurricane Den-
nis, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson charged in
a letter to the nation's top disaster
management official.
In the wake of hurricanes and
other disasters, the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency
(FEMA) generally reimburses resi-
dents for purchases of certain
items-- like, generators, dehumid-
ifiers, heating fuel and chain saws
- made up to several days in
advance of an incident. That's what
FEMA did for the four hurricanes


that hit Florida last year.
But in the case of Hurricane
Dennis, which struck the Panhan-
dle July 10, residents now are being
told by FEMA that such storm-
preparation expenditures will not
be covered.
"As things stand now, you are
punishing people for taking steps
necessary to protect their lives or
property," Nelson said in his July 21
letter to FEMA chief Mike Brown.
Nelson asked Brown to make
federal assistance available to Pan-
handle residents for qualifying
items they bought a day or two
before the storm. Because the state
response actually began three days


before Dennis, and because the
storm was preceded by high
winds, torrential rains and torna-
does, residents who went to the
expense of preparing themselves
should not be punished, Nelson
said.
Nelson noted FEMA has extend-
ed its so-called "incident period"
for covering such expenses in the
past. For instance, the agency
extended coverage from one to five
days following severe weather and
flooding in Wisconsin in Septem-
ber 2002.
For Hurricane Charley in August
of last year, FEMA covered resi-
dents' authorized storm-related


expenses two days before the
storm. For Hurricane Frances three
weeks later, FEMA allowed one day
before the storm in which to pur-
chase such things. For Hurricane
Ivan in mid-September, FEMA cov-
ered expenses for up to three days
beforehand. For Hurricane Jeanne
in late September, FEMA paid for
certain uninsured and unmet
needs made two days before the
storm.
But for Dennis, the agency says
it will pay for expenses beginning
the day of the storm.
"I feel that the action of FEMA is
causing a lot of undue stress to citi-
zens in Santa Rosa County," a Mil-


ton woman wrote Nelson in a July
20 letter, after FEMA denied her
claim for reimbursement on a gen-
erator. "Last year I was without
power and a generator for eleven
days. Therefore I purchased a gen-
erator two days before (Dennis).
"We are working class people
who don't have the money to just
go out and purchase these items,
but my understanding was that we
would be reimbursed," she wrote,
"Please help us recover our
losses."
A Pensacola woman, who also
was a Dennis victim, wrote Nelson
too, saying: "FEMA made the deci-
sion to reimburse for the purchase


of a generator only if the purchase
was made on the day of the hurri-
cane (July 10, 2005) or after that
date. This is totally unfair. What
were people supposed to do?
There were no generators in Pen-
sacola before the date of the hurri-
cane.
"My husband purchased our
generator in Georgia, because I
tried to locate one in Pensacola and
could not. The people who are
being shafted by FEMA need to
stand up for themselves and
appeal to any government officials
who is willing to speak for the peo-
ple of this country."


Florida officials t(


NEW ORLEANS U.S. Sen.
Bill Nelson will join a delegation of
federal, state and local officials
from Florida scheduled to testify
before the Base Realignment and
Closure Commission in New
Orleans. Although the Depart-
ment of Defense (DOD) recom-
mended no Florida bases be
closed, the delegation will ask
commission members to reject
DOD recommendations that
adversely impact a few Florida
military bases.
The Defense Department has
recommended relocating naval
training and education headquar-
ters at Pensacola Naval Air Station
and ordinance testing activities at
Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
Nelson will ask the commis-
sion to endorse, efforts to make
upgrades to Mayport Naval Station
in Jacksonville that will enable the
base to house a nuclear powered
aircraft carrier.
Besides Nelson, the so-called
BRAC panel also will hear from
Sen. Mel Martinez and Gov. Jeb


Bush.
Senator Bill Nelson statement:
Base Realignment and closure
commission
Mr. Chairman and members of
the Commission, I am grateful for
this opportunity to address the
Commission and share my views
on the Department's recommen-
dations regarding military bases
and activities in the state of Flori-
da.
We are convinced that on bal-
ance the Department's recom-
mendations provide ample evi-
dence of its profound and
complete endorsement of the cur-
rent and future military value of
Florida's bases, activities, and our
extensive training and testing air,
land and sea ranges.
Despite this confirmation of
Florida's exceptional contribution
to national security, we share the
Commission's view, as indicated
in Chairman Prinicpi's letter to
Secretary Rumsfeld, that the
Department's recommendations,
in some cases, may be technically


o lobby -
flawed, short-sighted, illogical or
perhaps unnecessarily cautious.
Florida's testimony today high-
lights for you all these shortcom-
ings.
For example, the Navy is now
unequivocal and on the record.
The nation needs two aircraft car-
rier ports on the east coast. We
have two carrier ports now, but
only one is nuclear capable. It is
inevitable that the Navy will estab-
lish the required nuclear aircraft
carrier capability at Naval Station
Mayport. We should do it sooner
rather than later, and we urge the
Commission to include this in its
recommendations.
Also, as you have heard, the
Department's recommendation to
move the Naval Ordnance Test
Unit off of Cape Canaveral Air
Force Station and the Eastern
Range appears to have been
made without consideration of its
"on site" mission or the econom-
ics of its current and future con-
tractor-support situation. We urge
the Commission to reverse this in


Military base closure panel


its recommendations.
The Department's proposal to
realign large training policy and
management activities now at
Naval Air Station Pensacola away
from actual training may have
unintended negative conse-'
quences for the quality of both.
We do not agree that the colloca-
tion of officer education and train-
ing makes intuitive or analytical
sense-education and training.
often require dramatically differ-
ent resources and environments.
Finally, as mentioned by Admi-
ral Natter in our opening testimo-
ny, Florida has submitted sepa-
rately other issues for the
Commission's consideration that
time does not allow us to explore
today. I would only highlight two
realignments related to Tyndall Air
Force Base that the Commission
should find very useful to exam-
ine. First, we agree with the
Department's recommendation to
regionally consolidate F-100 series
jet engine repair work but believe
they have selected the wrong loca-


tion. We recommend consolida-
tion at Tyndall Air Force Base,
where most of this engine work
will originate.
Also regarding Tyndall Air
Force Base, we ask that the Com-
mission to help avoid an imple-
mentation error in the consolida-
tion of chem-bio researchers at
another installation. The Depart-
ment's recommendation touches
more than those researchers
working chem-bio and would
damage other important research
intended to stay at Tyndall., As I
mentioned a moment ago, details
on these issues have been submit-
ted in writing.
We have the greatest respect
for the Commission and your
awesome responsibility to ana-
lyze, evaluate, validate and, so far
as is humanly possible, perfect the
Department's recommendations.
As is often said, "the low hang-
ing fruit" was taken in previous
BRAC rounds. Given the security

environment today and for the
foreseeable future this BRAC


round needs to take best advan-
tage of, and even more important-
ly protect the critical air, sea and
land facilities we already hold.
I believe Admiral Natter's earli-
er testimony best points this out
Florida's geo-strategic position on
our nation's southeastern flank
combined with our exceptionally
large restricted air, sea, and land
space make us the nation's opti-
mal operations, combat training
and weapons testing location on
the continent.
We believe, as you have, heard,
that this BRAC could and should
take better advantage of Florida's
superior bases, adjacent air, sea
and land ranges, and wonderfully
supportive state and local com-
munity environment and quality
of life.
We are eager to help you in any
way we can to ensure this BRAC
meets the needs of our Armed
Forces for generations to come
with the most capable infrastruc-
ture at the lowest possible cost
and risk.


Florida Kids count responds to national calls to action for unemployed parents


A report released by the Annie
E. Casey Foundation reveals that
the number of children living with
unemployed parents has
increased from three million to
four million since 2000.
According to the 16th annual
KIDS COUNT Data Book, unem-
ployed parents are often faced
with issues that make connecting
to the workforce especially diffi-


cult domestic violence, depres-
sion, substance abuse, and prior
incarceration. The Annie E. Casey
Foundation KIDS COUNT project
is a national and state-by:state
effort to compile the best avail-
able data to describe the educa-
tional, social, economic and phys-
ical well being of the nation's
children.
KIDS COUNT seeks to enrich


local, state, and national discus-
sions concerning ways to secure
better futures for all children by
providing policymakers and citi-
zens with benchmarks of child
well being. This year's report
shows that in 2003, approximately
168,000 children in Florida lived in
low-income households where no
adult worked in the past year,
accounting for four percent of


Florida's total child population.
The report also found an
increased rate of children in single
parent households.
In 2003, 36 percent of Florida's
children lived in households led
by a single parent, compared to 35
percent in 2000. This year's data
book reveals a critical need for
state and local leaders to build
support for vulnerable parents in a


more systematic, comprehensive,
and integrated way. The 2005 Data
Book's essay highlights public and
private initiatives around the
country that address the needs of
America's most persistently
unemployed.families.
The Department of Child &
Family Studies and the USF Louis
de la Parte Florida Mental Health
Institute are involved in a number


of initiatives with the same goals.
Information on those initiatives
and contact information.can be
found at:
http://cscf.fmhi.usf.edu/flkc/fmhi
05programs.htm. For information

Councils at
