By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Belle Glade city officials, along
with representatives with the
United States Department of Agri-
culture, met at city hall to discuss
the $900,000 grant amount the
USDA recently provided to the
city for infrastructure improve-
ments to the business park.
The money, provided through
rural development funds, repre-
sents the continued progress at
the business park, which in the
future may serve as a driving cat-


alyst for economic change, grate-
ful Belle Glade officials told the
representatives on-hand.
"We'd like to thank you, the
USDA, for finding it fitting to pro-
vide funding," Belle Glade Steve
Wilson told the visiting delega-
tion, while touching on the
importance of making the much-
needed improvements to the
city's infrastructure at the busi-
ness park.
The money, according to city
officials, will help pay for the
infrastructure to accommodate


the businesses locating at the
second, 50 acres of the park, as
well as serve as a launching pad
to acquiring more land for future
growth.
Initially, the city acquired 50
acres for its business park several
years ago, a feat it improved
upon after acquiring a second 50
acres.
The goal of the park then and
now is to attract companies to
the area to help narrow the
unemployment numbers in the
local population. The continual

Local law enforcement agencies took part in the National Night Out event, where offi-

downsizing of agricultural com-
panies faced with cutting costs to
remain competitive in an indus-
try that copes with the effects of
. free trade agreements has had a
tremendous effect on agricultural
cities throughout the nation and
in the Glades.
The local citizenry accus-
tomed to such work struggles to
replace their lost wages. Finding
companies to move in and hire
the displaced is an effort that the
commission has focused on for
years and the grant funding for


the infrastructure is an appreciat-
ed bonus, commissioners said.
"This gift is most gracious,"
Commissioner Gwen Asia-
Williams said at the presentation.
"We are preparing this city to go
forward."

South Bay



revisits the



marina issue


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
SOUTH BAY The city of
South Bay continues to move
forward with the Marina proj-
ect, a project that is estimated
to cost millions to build and
promises to attract tourists
and visitors to the city through
a waterfront location with
direct access to Lake Okee-
chobee.
The city plans on making
use of the new facility through
a variety of activities aimed at,
providing the community with
a location at which to.meet -*
that can also be utilized by
boaters and nature buffs or for
weddings and receptions and
similar functions. Officials say


there is currently a lack of
such a facility to accommo-
date the needs of the commu-
nity.
They are hoping that the
project which is referred to
as the South Bay Marina Edu-
cational Facility once com-
pleted will serve as the impe-
tus for additional economic
change in South Bay, with an
increase in dollars coming to
the city as a' result of the new
attraction.
Current specs on the proj-
ect, as well as renderings pro-
vided on the possible look of
the building, depict a building

Love cleared



in recent



stalking charge


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
PAHOKEE Following a
jury trial at the Central Court-
house in West Palm Beach
Aug. 2, Robert Love was.found
not guilty on charges of stalking
and resisting arrest.'
The charges Mr. Love
appeared in court for stem
back to an incident that,
according ,to Mr. Love,
occurred in April of 2004 in
which he reportedly followed
Officer Lyndean Peters with a
video camera in Pahokee.


In a police report on the
incident, Officer J. Levey writes,
"I, from a distance of ten feet,
saw Love move the camera
and track Officer Peters' every
movement.. Even though there
were three officers there,
counting myself, Love seemed
fixated on recording and nar-
rating what Officer Peters was
doing."
According to Officer Levey,

Fitness Center


opens their doors


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE "Thank
God, it's about time!" That was
the reaction Kim Douglas heard
one recent Friday as the Real
Woman Fitness Center held its
grand opening event in Belle
Glade.
On the same day, 120 women
from throughout the area, excited
at the opening of the new busi-
ness, signed up for the fitness
program.
According to co-owner of the
new establishment, Mirtha
Pardo, women in the Glades
were tired of having to make use
of their local parks for exercise
purposes and seemed ready for a
change. She knows that for a fact
because she was among them,
before realizing that a dedicated
fitness center for women was
sorely lacking in the Glades.
Mirtha, a 35-year resident of


Belle Glade, had been looking at
business opportunities in the area
when she decided to partner with
her relative Annette Cabrera and
.begin a unique venture. Before
long, the plans were in place to
open the Real Woman Fitness
Center.
The open house event, July
29, exceeded expectations,
according to Ms. Douglas, the
personal trainer who will be
working directly with clients in
formulating specialized exercise
routines for them.
"We were expecting maybe
half of that," she said, referring to
the 100-plus women who signed
up for the fitness program.
The unique aspect of the
equipment available at the Real
Woman Fitness Center, explained
Ms. Douglas, is that the hydraulic-

Sunlight has benefits


- in moderation


Too much of a good thing can
be dangerous.
The recent controversy over
exposure to sunlight is a good
example of this. Recent studies
show regular exposure to sunlight
may reduce the risk of colon,
breast, lung and prostate cancers.
However, too much exposure to
sunlight has been linked to skin
cancer.
Exposure to sunlight causes the
skin-to produce vitamin D.
While vitamin D supplements
are available, there are debates on
how much vitamin D is enough to
get the cancer fighting benefits as
well as how much vitamin D might
be detrimental. If those taking sup-
plements take too little vitamin D,
they won't get the cancer-fighting
benefits. Too much vitamin D,
taken in supplement form, can be
toxic.
Getting vitamin D the natural
way is safer, researchers explain,
because the body will not make
more vitamin D than it can use.
Complicating the debate is the
fact.that using sunscreen inhibits
the body's ability to convert sun-
light to Vitamin D. So going out in
the sun slathered with sunscreen
won't help produce Vitamin D.
How much sunlight does your
body need to keep your Vitamin D
at the optimal level? It depends on
how dark your skin is. The darker
your skin, the more sun exposure it
takes for the body to produce Vita-
min D.
For a fair-skinned person in
Florida, researchers say about 15
minutes every other day of sun
exposure is probably enough.
That's long enough to get the vita-
min D benefit, but not long enough
to get a sunburn.
Darker skinned persons need
longer sun exposure to get the vita-


A

Life


with Katrina Elsken

min D benefits. Those who live far-
ther away from.the equator also
need more time in the sun to get
the same benefit.
One study theorizes that the rea-
son for the increase of prostate
cancer in African American men,
who live in urban areas is that they
do not get enough sunlight to pro-
duce sufficient vitamin D.
The best time to sunbathe is
early morning or late afternoon, as
the midday sun (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.)
is the most dangerous for burns.
You don't have to expose a lot of
skin as long as your hands, arms
and face get sun, it should be
enough. To prevent drying your
skin, you might want to use a mois-
turizer after sun exposure.
Senior citizens at risk of osteo-
porosis may be advised to get more
sun because vitamin D is necessary
for the body to absorb calcium.
If you are on any prescription-
medications, check with your doc-
tor about possible interactions with
sun exposure. Some medications
make your skin more vulnerable to
sunburn.
Before making any change in
your diet or exercise routine, con-
sultyour physician. This is especial-
ly important if you are on any pre-
scription medications. Some
prescription drugs interact badly
with foods that would otherwise
be considered "healthy".

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.
YOUR'E RESPONSIBLE: When is something going to be done
about the speeding on residential streets in Belle Glade? All of the
stop signs in the world are not going to do any good at all if no on
stops for them or even slows down for them. There are speed limits
in case no one realizes that. There are small children in the street
playing and many times no one is watching them. Parents, keep
your young children out of the street. A speeding vehicle cannot
stop in time to avoid it if someone dashes into the street. Recreation-
al vehicles of all kinds roar up and down with no regard for safety
whatever. Does someone have to be killed or badly hurt before
something is done? This situation is completely out of hand. Mr.
Dowdell, get your officers out there. This is your responsibility.

JOBS AT STAKE: Hello Sun, Speak Out, and all my fellow readers.
I'm taking this opportunity to talk to our communities. I have been
keeping up with a very important issue that is going to affect these
communities. It's call CAFTA. The Central American Free Trade
Agreement. It is now waiting on the president's signature, I'm sur-
prised that I have not seen this issue printed in The Sun. Everyone
that lives around the lakeneeds to be aware of this. I'm employed
with U.S. Sugar. There are going to be job losses when most of us
rely on seasonal harvest to support our houses. We have some local
politicians who are in favor of this agreement. They are hot thinking
of the number of jobs that will be affected.

DANGEROUS PARK: I'm a concerned parent. I read in the paper
about the improvements to the other parks in the area of Belle
Glade. I know of many parents speaking with the city about
improvements in (inaudible). It's dangerous for our kids to play out
there. When is any funding going to be put towards renovating that
park?

IT'S PITIFUL: I'm calling about the statement in the paper about
Bacom Point, how's it been done about the trees in there. Why
don't they see how many fatalities has been on that road since those
palm trees and see how many before they done it like that and see
the problem that this has caused Pahokee? What they call beautify-
ing is costing people's lives. It's really pitiful.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. While the loss of a single life is
no small matter, to our recollection there has been one tragedy on
Bacom Point Road since the palm trees were planted. However, we
are making the effort to distinguish the number of fatalities before
and after the installment of the trees, but it is our understanding that
the median has been the primary culprit of causing accidents and
many of those had to do with speeders and impaired drivers.

BEWARE: There's an ad.in the Palm Beach Post in the job sec-
tion, under trades, for talent builders. They say that they are con-
nected to the construction outfit and they put you on the computer.
It cost almost $600 with no guarantee of a job and they blow so
much smoke up your rear end that you think you are going to work
for $45 an hour. This is two years later and I ain't heard a word. Just
beware out there because there's a lot of poor folk who borrowed
money like I did to go to this.

NO REGARD TO SAFETY: I'd like to know from the police in Belle
Glade when it became legal for ATVs to be driven through our
neighborhoods. I have kids flying.through our neighborhood all
lii-nes of the day, all limes of the night %hen you are trying to sleep
with the loud muffler. They have no regard for any type of speed
limit, children playing in the neighborhood, I'm listening to them
right now. It's very irritating. Someone is going to get hurt. The cops
need to do something about it.

ARE YOU DOING ANYTHING TO HELP?: Does the NAACP exist in
Belle Glade, Pahokee, and South Bay? If they do, I wish they could
name some things that they are doing to benefit the people.
Because if they are, the people need to know what they are doing.
Please help the NAACP respond and name the positive things they
are doing such asstanding behind the people-of this community.

NOT GUILTY: I'm calling from Pahokee and just wanted every-
one to know that Mr. Robert Love was found not guilty on all
charges. He was told that the charges would be dropped. He went
over there and had trial after all and Mr. Love was found not guilty.
Chief Duran was there, Sgt. Peters was there, so obviously I think the
police department went wrong if the jury found him not guilty. So,
thanks for your good covering the situation with Mr. Love and we
should all take our hats off to him for putting up with what he's had
to put up with the discrimination against him and the hateful things
said against him and also the commissioners and the citizens who
do love him. Goes to showyou that a felon is a felon, but he does his
time and pays for the crime and %\e should leave this behind us.

TIME TO GROW UP: Hello, this is Officer Maxwell. I'm calling
about an article that was apparently about me that someone had
put in there so, I'm going to respond. Normally I don't respond to
such childish negativity. If they were to do their job as well as I do
mine and were well liked like I am, maybe they would get the same
response and the same publicity as I have. It's a shame that some-
one has nothing else to do but waste their time than to bad mouth
someone that has had a positive input. I do not like anybody speak-
ing my wife. If the person wishes to come forward to'tell me who
they are, I would like to meet that person. My wife did not call that
in. I think the person who did call it in, needs to grow up. I deserve
to be in the position I am in and this person shouldn't hide behind a
newspaper. If someone has a problem with that, they should come
speak to me.
Editor's note. Thanks for calling. Our policy does not allow
callers to identify themselves. But in the case of Officer Maxwell,
who was identified by previous callers, he wished to make a state-
ment, and the policy is flexible under these circumstances.

NOT A FAIRYTALE: I'm calling about the reply on Officer
Maxwell. Mr. Maxwell is a great officer. He's very professional and
he does do his job. I've had to call him many times on many things
and he's always been professional. It is not a fairy tale. Mr. Maxwell
is a wonderful officer and wonderful person. And everybody has'a
right to brag on our Pahokee officers.


GET INVOLVED: Okay, the children are going back to school on
the eighth. All year long they have summer programs, why don't
they have anything for the children to do when they get out of
school? I'm a mom and I want to know can the community get
together and find something for the kids to do beside after school
programs, different activities or something like that? Are there any
parents that want to get together and get involved? I know I'm one
of them that is trying to keep the children off the street.

Community Profile: Cylenthia Mann


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Q: What is your name?
A: Cylenthia Lynette Mann.
Q: Wherewereyou bom?
A: I was born in Pahokee, but
lived in Belle Glade and Loxa-
hatchee, but have always gone to
school here in the Glades area. I
graduated from Glades Central.
The Glades, I think, is'in my skin.
Q:Whatdoyoudo?
A: I am the site coordinator for
the HIPPY Program, which is
located, the office is located in
South Bay. We work with the tri-
city area of Belle Glade, Pahokee
and the South Bay area. We work
with parents who have three- four-
and five-year-old children who are
not yet in any kind of pre-K servic-
es, that's our main goal. Some-
times we do work with parents
who have children in Pre-K pro-
gram. Parents are usually low-
income, or have a low-education
background.
We focus on the parent being
the first teacher, of their child. We
try to make sure that they will
know a lot of the language for
education, as far as motor skills
and different kind of education,
vocabulary and language. By the
time their child reaches the ele-
mentary school age, they will be
.prepared, the parent will be pre-
pared and everyone will feel com-
fortable. We make home visits.
There is a staff of eight when we'
are at full capacity, with the one
coordinator and the eight home


visitors..
We serve 120 families in this
area. We also are funded through
CFS, the Center for Family Services
and CSC, the University of Florida
and others. Palm Beach Housing
Authority gives up office space
and the Miracle By Faith Commu-
nity Church, they allow us to use
their community hall once a
month for our parent meetings.
Q: What motivates you?
A: I've worked with children,
really, since I've been in the work-
ing field. Believing, knowing that
children are our future and trying
to mold children and trying to
mold people so that people will


generate the kind of energy to
want to do more, to have more
goals, to want to exceed and go
further and not just settle.
There are barriers, but I think
we can overcome them. I know
that everyone can have barriers,
but they can be overcome. We
just have to push, we have to chal-
lenge ourselves. Sometimes we
need to make goals and if we
make goals then we have some-
time to strive, to reach for.
I remember when I was a
home visitor. I have been a home
visitor, a parent and now a coordi-
nator in the program. I have fami-
lies I still keep in touch with now.
They are still close to my heart.
The children who were in the pro-
gram are excelling.
I had one parent, but she was
so motivated to see her children,
and the program just excited her.
It made me feel so good every
week to be able to go to her house
because she had so much energy
and she was so excited.
Q: Can you describe yourself?
A: I'm shy. I am shy. I had to
learn how to build confidence
enough to stand in front of people
and speak. By being the coordina-
tor, a lot of times you are pushed
to the forefront. But I am shy. I am
more of an introvert than an extro-
vert. By working in this field, you
have to adjust yourself.
I'm kind. (Q: How would your
family describe you?) Sometimes
my son says that I'm mean, but I


think he would probably say he
has a good mommy. He loves his
mommy. I push. I really push. I
push for academics, it's so impor-
tant to me. I push for good morals.
I push for value. I try to bring those
things out. Not just in my son, but
even in other children. I tend to be
a mother figure. If I see them out
of order, I try to help to be correct.
Q: What thought scares you?
A: Snakes scare me. That is so
.true. I have a very bad phobia of
snakes.
Q: What is your favorite song?
A: His Eye is on the Sparrow.
Because if God's eye can be on a
little sparrow, a very small bird,
then I know His eye is on me.
Q:Whatirksyou?
A: I have tried to learn to adjust
to things making me upset. Being
upset doesn't help. What irks me
is trying to help someone and put-
ting as much effort as you can and
still, they don't accept it. They
refuse to receive it. I think that is
what irks me. You're trying to help
them for the better, not for the
worst. Whenyou're extending the
hand, and even if they take the
hand that you're extending, do
they truly use it?
Q: Is there a memory you hold
dear?
A: It would have to be my son.
Just being able to see that little
boy's face. Just him saying,
"Mommy, I love you." I try to tell
him every day. He's eight. His
name is DeAngelo.


Life may be hard, but God is good


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I would like to say that God
makes life easy for all those who
love Him. But it simply is not
true. Life happens. And some-
times life can be terribly, terribly
difficult even for those who
love Jesus.
When we're faced with life's
bad bounces, it helps to remem-
ber that every cross in a Christ-
ian's life is a precursor to total
victory,.and that while life is hard,
God is good, and God can help'
us deal victoriously with life's
hard times.
Sometimes we will go
through a difficult experience
and it will make us stronger.
Often we'll have a new apprecia-
tion for our family and friends.
More often than not, we'll grow
to rely on the promises of God.
We cannot know all of God's
plan and purpose, but this we
can know: Life is hard, but God is
good, because life with God is
filled with promise, and in Him
we have a Friend who is able to


help us be more than conquerors
in life's situations. (Romans 8:37-
38)
I never
cease to be
inspired by
those people
who are dealt
difficult hands
and who bring,
victory out of
circumstance
that would
defeat many Pastor
others. They ko .
found cancer John Hicks
in the leg. of
one of my deans at seminary,
and were going to have to ampu-
tate. Do you know what he did?
He held a going away party for
his leg, saying that it had served
himwell! -
A year later, When the cancer
came back and was close.to
overcoming him, he shared with
the campus: "I know many of
you prayed for my healing. Fol-
lowing the prescription of James
5:13-16, some of you anointed
me with oil and laid hands on me


with other elders. We shared the
sacramenIt regularly. And some
of you feel disappointed that God
didn't heal me. But take heart.
We prayed for healing and God
gave me the greatest healing of
all. My family was fractured. They
never got together and never had
a kind word to say about each
other. But my cancer has brought
them together. I prayed God
would heal my family for many
years. He used my illness to heal
my family. I'm so thankful.
Besides, I'm going to heaven.
That's the ultimate healing."
, As the old poker player used
to say, "It's not the hand you're
dealt that matters, ;it's how you
play with the hand you're dealt."
This is winning in the game of
life. It's not to discount the
tragedies -that come 'into "our'
lives. It is to acknowledge that
faith gives us a choice. We can
put our tragedies, into God's
hands and watch God perform a
miracle of grace in our lives.
Someone once shared that
people could be separated into
two groups: Transmitters or


transformers. When faced with
life's difficulties, the transmitters
become negative and bitter, and
they spread that negativity to
.everyone around them. Faced
with the same difficulties, the
transformers look for positives in
their situation, and they spread
their good feelings to all those
around them.
Each person has a choice as
to his or her attitude in facing life
difficulties. We can sit around
and moan and ask, "Why, oh
why, did this happen to me?" and
it won't do us a bit of good. All
we'll do is make ourselves and
everyone around us miserable.
On the other hand we can
look up and say, "Father, I put my
life in your hands," and let God
help us:change:from transmitters
to transformers, from people
who are weak to people with
tremendous inner strength; from
people who are miserable to
people who radiate with the joy
of Christ; from people who are
over come, to people who are
over-comers.


Pet Corner


Q: Dear Doc Savwy. Hello my

name is Vinny, and I live in Del
Ray Beach. I have two labs and
they both love to go in and out of
my pool. They don't have any
problems other than being really
goofy, but I was wondering: Is it
okay for them to be swimming in
a chlorinated pool all the time?
Thanks.
A: Hi Vinny. Most of the time
swimming can cause problems
such as ear infections and skin
problems for dogs, especially,
floppy-ear dogs like labs. As long
as they don't seem to be having
any of those problems, all is okay.
Make sure they are nol drinking
from the pool because chlorinat-
ed pool water can cause an upset
stomach. Even though they are


3i I


,


not having problems with ears
and skin, I still recommend hav-
ing them rinsed off with fresh
water and clean their ears rou-
tinely. Take care Vinny, Doc Savvy.


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Myv cat
Stanley has been drinking a lot of
water and urinating frequently for
the last month or so. Is this a sign
of a kidney problem9 Stan the
Man in Loxahatchee.
A: Oh how cliche Stan not
the kidney part the Stan the
Man part ha! Well yes! Drink-
ing a lot of water and urinating a
lot as a result, can be a sign of a
kidney problem, as well as a pos-
sible few other concerns. For cats,
especially those that are middle
aged or older (seven years plus),
another concern could be dia-
betes. Cats, and dogs can get dia-
betes mellitus, more commonly
known as sugar diabetes. The
best way to find out what is
wrong with Stanley is to take him


to your veterinarian for a few
tests. In particular, a urine test and.
blood test to diagnose the prob-
lem correctly. A kidney problem
will show elevated kidney
enzymes called blood urea nitro-
gen, and creatinine. For diagnos-
ing diabetes, an elevated blood
glucose will usually pin-point the
problem. In most cases, both can
be treated. Good luck Stan the
Man, and make haste. Waiting
longer can be a problem for either
disease'

Verizon agreement


benefits consumers


TALLAHASSEE -Attorney Gen-
eral Charlie Crist today announced
that Verizon Florida, Inc., has agreed
to give consumers greater flexibility
to choose another company for
their telephone service. In return, all
parties agreed to dismiss a com-
plaint against Verizon filed with the
Public Service Commission.
The original complaint with the
PSC, filed by Bright House Net-
works (BHN) last September,
asserted that Verizon would not
allow customers to transfer their old
phone numbers to BHN without
terminating their Verizon Internet
service. Verizon allegedly also
refused to-offer its customers stand-
alone DSL service, instead requiring
customers to first subscribe to Veri-
zon's local voice service. The com-
plaint said this practice discouraged
consumers from switching
providers because they did not want
to be forced to also change their
phone number or e-mail address.
By impeding competition, Crist
said, Verizon's practices harmed
consumers by limiting their
options. Direct competition
between Verizon and BHN occurs


in the Tampa Bay area, the com-
plaint stated. Verizon's practices
violated federal and state rules
regarding the ability of consumers
to keep their phone numbers when
they switch service providers.
Based on the effect of Verizon's
practices on consumers, the Attor-
ney General's Office intervened as
a party in the PSC case in February.
The PSC previously concluded that
it is anticompetitive for a provider
to refuse to transfer a customer's
telephone number where the cus-
tomer still wishes to use the same
provider for DSL service.
Crist said Verizon would now
allow its customers to switch to
BHN for their local telephone serv-
ice and keep the same phone num-
ber, while continuing to use Veri-
zon's DSL Internet connections.
"Healthy competition for infor-
mation services is crucial to both
Florida's economy and individual
consumers," said Crist. "Competi-
tion should mean more choices
and lower prices, and this agree-
ment will benefit Florida con-
sumers through the free market
system."


Crist: Principals



of insurance



scam sentenced


Victims to
receive $3 million

TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist announced
that two individuals have received
prison sentences for their roles in
an insurance scam. William Paul
Crouse and Carmelo Zanfei the
principals of TRG Marketing, LLC
- were sentenced for selling
unauthorized health plans to
more than 7,000 Floridians, result-
ing in millions of dollars of unpaid
claims.
Crouse and Zanfei marketed a
self-insured health plan to citizens
of Florida and 43 other states
without seeking a certificate of
authority to sell the plan. They
claimed that the plan was exempt
from the licensing and certifica-
tion requirements of state law.
Investigators determined the
health plan was insufficiently
funded and the company failed to
pay millions of dollars in claims.
The affected Floridians could
receive more than $3 million in
restitution, ranging from $200 to
$200,000 per victim.
"This scam preyed on unsus-
pecting people who were simply
looking for a way to protect them-
selves with a health plan," said
Crist. "These crooks not only
robbed their victims of that securi-
ty, but also their hard earned
money. This sentence sends the


clear message that we will contin-
ue to work to put an end to these
fraudulent practices, and to get
the victims their money back."
Crouse pled guilty to racketeer-
ing and four counts of unlawful
transaction of insurance on June
10, and was sentenced to four
years in prison. Zanfei pled guilty
to conspiracy to commit racket-
eering and four counts of unlaw-
ful transaction of insurance on
June 10, and was sentenced to
two years in prison.
Both defendants were also
sentenced to 20 years of super-
vised probation with special con-
ditions that they make restitution
to more than 7,000 Floridians,
after they are released from
prison. The restitution is expected
to be more than $3 million and
could increase if more victims
come forward, however the full
amount will not be known until
the restitution hearing takes place
on December 9,2005.
The Attorney General's Office
of Statewide Prosecution received
the case in April 2003 from investi-
gators with the Department of
Financial Services. Although the
health plan was illegally marketed
in 43 other states, Florida was the
only state to pursue criminal
charges.
Any citizen who believes he or
she has been a victim should call
the Attorney General's Fraud Hot-
line toll free at (866) 9-NO-SCAM
(866-966-7226).

Back to school not back in debt


By Debbie Clements
Extension Family &
Consumer Science Agent
Most everyone will notice the
big yellow busses are rolling
through town this week a sure
sign that local schools are now
back in session. Parents will soon
get detailed lists of "essential
school supplies" from their chil-
dren's teachers, and kids will be
looking at their classmates for the
latest fashions for the new school
year.
Many families will feel their
family budget is stretched real thin
this year, especially with all of the
storm-related expenses from this
past year. What can be done to
Help our students get started off on
the right foot without breaking the
bank?
"Back-to-school time is one of-
the major spending promotion
times by retailers and credit card
issuers alike," warns Paul Richard
of the San Diego based, award win-
ning, nonprofit Institute of Con-
sumer Financial Education (ICFE).
-The ICFE is concerned with adver-
tising aimed at consumers that pro-
motes indiscriminate credit-based
-spending for back-to-school sup-
* plies. The ICFE is dedicated to help-
ing consumers improve their
spending, increase their savings
and use credit more wisely.


Because credit cards have the
basic message of: SPEND, credit
card use in this country continues
to increase. So also has the amount
of debt carried by cardholders -
and the various hidden fees are
also rising..
Try these 10 spending tips from
the ICFE for getting better value
when doing your back-to school
shopping.
Make a list of what is needed
by category; i.e. clothing, books,
sports equipment, or music etc.
Plan ahead. Start watching for
store sale flyers, flea markets,
garage sales, clearance sales, etc.
Establish a spending-plan and
make a timetable to purchase the
essentials over several weeks or
months.
Comparison shop with at
least five different sources for the
bestvalues.
Consider not buying all the-
needed clothing initially If it all.
gets worn at once, it may all need
replacing at the same time. Spread
out these purchases over many
weeks. Allow some flexibility so as
to take advantage of sales and true
bargains.
Avoid using credit cards to
spend income hot yet earned. They
are too expensive (users either pay
interest or an annual fee, or both,
for the convenience). Some credit
card issuers routinely promote


indiscriminate spending, which so
often can result in overspending.
Try using a bank debit card that
uses money you actually have, and
avoid those fees and interest pay-
ments.
When it comes to trendy
items for school clothes or school
supplies, encourage children to
become independent and not "go-
with-the-flow" demanding all of
the latest product tie-ins, from the
summer's hottest movies, for
example. Fads. often lose their
steam after school starts, often
because nearly every other child
has them.
If there are several children in
your home with back to school
needs, you may want to. consider
setting aside money each month of
the year for this expense to avoid
having to divert money away from
other expenses.
Use layaway plans for cloth-
ing, supplies, etc. whenever possi-
ble and practical.
Purchase "pre-owned"
(used) text books, lab tools and
supplies, etc. when possible.
Most consumers who do credit-
based spending have become vic-
tims to the forces in our society,
getting people to spend beyond
their incomes. Credit based spend-
ing decisions have a far greater
negative impact on one's financial
future than any investment deci-


sion one might ever make. These
decisions include how often to eat
out (or entertain someone) this
week, how much to spend on
back-to-school needs, or redeco-
rating a room, updating your
wardrobe and especially those
unplanned spending trips to the
grocery store.

ing Spending," monthly budgeting

Customer Service
Jeff Chue of U-Save was hon-
ored with our second quarter Cus-

Thursday, July 28. He was nominat-
ed for this award by Luan Walker.
In her nomination letter to the
chamber she cited that Jeff always.
"goes out of his way to make our
shopping experience a pleasure."
With the help of Jeff's daughter,
Lisa Knaack, we set up the time
and place for the surprise. And sur-
prised he was and he didn't know
what to think when he saw U-Save
Area Supervisor, Johnny Gant and
Director of Store Operations for U-
Save, Mark Popovich in the crowd!
Jeff's wife, Joan and daughter
Lisa were among the attendees.
Also in attendance were Paul Pre-
ston, Chamber Executive Director
and K T Windham, Chamber
Board President along with store
Employeess'
A special thanks to all the U-
Save employees that were able to
keep this a surprise and managed
to keep Jeff from seeing the pre-
pared food and cake that they pro-
vided! Thank you so much for your
hard work!
After the shock, Jeff was pre-
sented with a $100 check, the
recognition plaque and a congratu-
latory card from the Chamber
Board of Directors-and staff. Then
the party began!
Please submit your nomina-
tions for our next award period,
which ends Sept. 30. All it takes is a
short note or letter that explains
why you feel that someone who
has assisted you is worthy of con-
sideration.

Spotlight on Education


Kay Zaccagnino
West Area Volunteer Coordinator
School District of Palm Beachl
County
It's been a busy week at the
school district with all the school
supply contributions, preparing for
various workshops and making
back-to-school preparations. One
can truly feel the excitement.in the
air. A quick reminder: Don't forget
to register online tp volunteer! See
your volunteer coordinator at the
school ofyour choice!
Okay, down to business. This
week's subject is Volunteerism.
I've got an interesting fact for you,
dear reader. In the western part of
the county (that would be Belle
Glade, Pahokee and South Bay),
we have the highest concentration
of school-age children. Pahokee
tops the list at 30.6 percent. Two
out of every 10 citizens of Palm
Beach County's 1,131,184 resi-
dents are younger than 18 and 73.8.
percent of the child population is
between five and 17 years old.
The numbers eclipse the state
and national percentages. These
figures came from the Children
Services Council report entitled
"State of the Child in Palm Beach
County Executive Summary." The
way I see it, if two out of every 10
are children, that leaves eight more


people to volunteer in some way,
shape or form.
Each week, I'll spotlight an out-
standing volunteer from the Glades
area. If they are family members,
friends or acquaintances, -please
make sure to congratulate them
when you see them! They all do an
outstanding job for our students.
This volunteer comes to the
School District of Palm Beach
County by way of Gove Elemen-
tary. She's been volunteering at
Gove for four years, averaging a
total of 30 hours per Week. Over
the last year and a half, she has put
in about 1,633 hours!
Mrs. Willie Perry is a member of
the Foster Grandparent Program
and was nominated for the out-
standing volunteer award with the
school district twice in a row. This
past year, she won the outstanding
volunteer award on the county
level and state level, then traveled
to Orlando to receive her award at
the Annual Florida Partners in Edu-
cation Conference.
Mrs. Perry was also recognized
at the Golden School Awards
Breakfast, as well as on the Volun-
teer of the Week program on 105.5
morning show. While not every
volunteer wins this many acco-
lades, each one is valuable in their
own way. Mrs. Perry shows excep-
tional abilities and is a shining


example to all.
As a foster grandparent volun-
teer, Mrs, Perry has been assigned
to the Special Education Depart-
ment where she works diligently in
two classes. She quickly learned
the routines and joyfully offers her
assistance to all of the students
throughout the day. During snack
time, she encourages the students
to communicate their needs and
improve in self-help skills.
She constantly models positive
social skills and directs the students
in appropriate ways to play togeth-
er. In the Profound Mentally Handi-
capped classroom, Mrs. Perry
brings a ray of sunshine to the class
as she finds beauty in each of the
students despite the limitations
they have. She always speaks to
each student in a kind, loving and
encouraging manner.
This year, Mrs. Perry was quick
to learn the VIPS Counts tracking
system for registering volunteers
and logging volunteer hours. She
assists other foster grandparents in
registering and logging their hours,


too.
The staff at Gove was responsi-
ble for submitting Mrs. Perry's
nomination and it's obvious that
they love and respect her for the
kind deeds and valuable volunteer
service she provides. I'm sure that
when Mrs. Perry returns for her
third year at Gove, she'll come
back with the enthusiasm and pos-
itive attitude that makes her the
wonderful person she is.
Remember, if you'd like to vol-
unteer and you don't know who to
call, call me! Kay Zaccagnino, West
Area Volunteer Coordinator,
School District of Palm Beach
County. (561) 996-4900, PX 44604.
You could email me, too. zaccagni-

would look for? How would that
student need to present him/her-
self? Respond back to me at

Tiger football set for Pahokee exhibition Law Offices of Robert L. Vaughn, P.A.


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON HIGH SCHOOL
- The Clewiston High School
Fighting Tigers have begun presea-
son workouts and regular practices
in full pads in preparation for the
upcoming fall 2005 football sea-
son.
Having minimal losses in key
positions from last year's senior
class, Head Coach Tommy Morrell
expects a strong effort from his sea-
soned varsity squad as the team
takes on the 2004 state champion
Pahokee Blue Devils in a Kickoff
Classic exhibition game at Cane
Field on Friday, Aug. 19. The game
will be an opportunity for area fans
to see what used to be one of the
most intense rivalries in the state
when the Blue Devils come to
Cane Field.
A preseason Blue and Gold
game will be held Friday, Aug. 12.
Tiger football practices began
Monday, Aug. 1 for the junior varsi-
ty and varsity squads. Despite auto-
matic afternoon thunderstorms,
which cut some practices short, as
well as having to deal with brutally
hot conditions when the rain
stopped, the practices have gone
smoothly, according to Coach Mor-
rell, and the team is poised to take
on a heavy schedule packed with
away games at some tough high
school venues.
Following the preseason classic
against Pahokee, the Tigers will
take on American Heritage at Cane
Field on Aug. 26. The Tigers are 5-3
against the American Heritage
team, which barely squeaked by in
a two-point victory over the Tiger
squad last year.
The Tigers will then take on
three of their biggest rivals in a
month-long string of away games
against LaBelle High School,
Glades Day School, and Glades"
Central High School.
The LaBelle Cowboys will no
doubt give their best effort, having
beaten the Tigers last year for, just
the third time since the two first
played in 1972, in another frustrat-
ing, one-point margin of victory.
The Tigers are 5-1 against the
Glades Day Gators since the teams
began playing again in 1999, and
hope to continue to keep the
Gators at bay as they head into
Belle Glade for the Sept. 9 game.
And of course, the Glades Cen-
tral Raiders will be a big test at one
of the toughest high school road
venues in the state. Although the
Raiders have kept the upper hand
over the Tigers in years past, the
once-matchless Raiders have
become Tar less a dominant than
the team used to be, and the Sept.
23 meeting could prove to become
a decisive game for the Tigers on
their quest for another title run.
Other notable stops on the 2005
Tiger football schedule include an
Oct. 7 match-up at Bishop Verot
High School, and home games
against St. Andrews and Okee-
chobee to wrap up the regular sea-
son.
Coach Morrell is still searching
for his first winning season, 'after a
2004 season plagued by injury and
close games. In fact, four of the


The Tigers are stacked with new, incoming talent on the Junior Varsity and
as they practice for the 2005 fall football season.


INI/Bill Fabian
Tiger football head coach Tommy Morrell ran the offensive
and defensive lines through drills as the players practiced
on their first day in full pads on Aug. 4.


Tigers' five losses in 2004 were lost
by a total margin of 12 points, or
less than two touchdowns. Coach
Morrell is counting on a few more
things going their way this year.
"We've had a great returning
class this year. We've got several
players returning at key skilled
positions, and I feel very good
about those guys with some expe-
rience and familiarity with what
needs to be done around here,"
said Coach Morrell.
The team also hopes to bring its
line and running game back to the
dominant, consistent nature
shown by teams in years past.
"In fact, our offensive and
defensive lines may just be the
biggest we've ever had, when
they're all healthy. It's just inexperi-
ence that's holding them back, but
if we can keep them healthy, I feel
like that can really help us turn
things around," he said.
A major part of that line, senior
lineman Vince Vaughn, will be,
needed when the Tigers take on
the Blue Devils on Aug. 19. Vaughn,
who broke a finger during the
Spring Blue and Gold exhibition
game several months ago, has yet
to be cleared for full contact partici-


pation by a physician. He is expect-
ed to return to full availability pend-
ing an upcoming doctor's visit.
The Tigers have been moved to
a new district, so Tiger fans will be
traveling to the Palm Beach County
area for four district games. The
four new schools on the schedule'
are Cardinal Newman, Pope John
Paul, Inlet Grove and St. Andrews.
. Helping the Tigers will be a spir-
it-filled school and community, as
well as an experienced coaching
staff. Along with Head Coach Mor-
rell, offensive and defensive line
coach Vance Johnston will bring
veteran experience to the staff.
Manny Gomez will coach wide
receivers and defensive backs.
Pablo Sanchez will serve as the
team's defensive coordinator. CHS
assistant principal Jackson Self will
coach quarterbacks and defensive
backs. Ryan Manuell will coach the
junior varsity squad. Philip Sum-
mers will coach the running backs
and defensive backs, and new-
comer Garret Jahn will coach quar-
terbacks and defensive backs.
Come support the Clewiston
High School Fighting Tigers at the
kickoff classic on Aug. 19!

that could easily serve as one of
the city's biggest draws. Consist-
ing of spacious facility with two
levels and the ability to house
hundreds at any given time, the
facility would be located across
the dike, adjacent to the existing
South Bay Campground. A tower
built into the center is being
planned in such a way that driv-
ers along Highway. 27 will notice
the new landmark.
The question is not if the city
agrees with the concept, but
with whether -or not the city can
afford to build such an ambi-
tious project under the present
financial difficulties. There is
almost no possibility that the city
itself could afford to construct
the facility. It becomes necessary
for South Bay to focus on grant
funding opportunities to help
pay for the construction, or the
possibility of a private/public
partnership, or both. The city
commission discussed the issue
at an Aug. 2 meeting in city hall.
Initially, the cost of the proj-
ect, as presented by city hall in
partnership with the South Flori-
da Water Management, District
some years ago, was estimated
to cost $1.8 million. Last week,
the commission was told by the
architectural firm working on
the project that the figure is now
higher. Under the plans present-


INI/Jose Zaragoza
Renderings provide the South Bay public with an idea of how
the finished marina project can turn out if funding is identi-
fied for the construction of the facility.


ed by that firm at a workshop
meeting, the project figure is
closer to $4 million, though the
consultants working with the
city say it is a conservative figure
that takes into account a 20-per-
cent contingency. The $4 million
figure represents the project cost
in its entirety.
Several factors, including the
escalating cost of construction
and revamped additions or
changes to the initial plans have
resulted in the increase. City offi-
cials said that the search for
funding would drive the extent
of those plans being carried out.
According to City Manager
Tony Smith, the city has any-


where from $1 million to $1.5
million that has been' earmarked
toward the project, money that
the city must go back to try to
recuperate. Mr. Smith explained
that, because the city did not uti-
lize funding provided to it years
earlier,, an example being
$500,000 pledged by the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict, it has now become neces-
sary to attempt to renew those
funding opportunities.
Officials are hopeful that with
the right campaign to the enti-
ties, which had previously ear-
marked monies toward the proj-
ect, that funding can. again be

three feet to Officer Peters, who
"attempted to perform his job."
The reported stalking occurred
while officers worked a case at
Bacom Point Road. Mr. Love
apparently arrived with his cam-
era in hand to record the officer's
every moment as the officers tried
to sort the case. That case
involved the use of a rental car by
a person other than who the car
had been rented out to. Mr. Love
said one of his children had been
riding in the car.
When Peters asked Love to
move away, Loved refused and
continued to tape, moving back
only after a person in the crowd
that had formed there asked Love
to back away. During the course
of the videotaping, Love reported-
ly harassed the officers while they
tried to perform their job.
A second report of the incident
by Officer C. Waters provided the
same information. According to
Officer Waters, "After several min-
utes, I heard Love, who sounded
upset over the situation speaking
loudly. It is apparent to me that
Love does not like or respect Offi-
cer Peters as a police officer with
the Pahokee Police Department
and I feel that Love is harassing
Officer Peters."
The six-member jury, howev-
er, felt differently and returned a
decision relieving Love of any
wrongdoing in the incident.
Judge Paul D'Amico presided.
The jury based their .decision
on testimony provided by, among
others, former Police Chief Rafael
Duran and Officer Peters and Offi-
cer Waters.
Following theverdict, Robert,
Love said he was satisfied with
the. decision. "I'm too happy,"
Love said the next day. "I have the
Lord on my side. I don't know
who they've got on theirs."
Love, however, still has to
make an appearance in court on
Sept. 16. He faces charges of pos-
session of marijuana and resisting
arrest with violence for an inci-
dent that occurred Feb. 25 of this
year.
That arrest fired off a series of
events that led to Chief Rafael
Duran resigning from his post as
police chief.
Of the stalking case, Interim
Pahokee Police Chief Calipto Gon-
zalez said, "The man was found
innocent and I hope this is the
end of it."
Editor's note: It has been con-
firmed through Mr. Love's attor-
ney that he was acquitted on the
charges of stalking and harass-
ment, but his attorney, who will
not be representing Mr. Love on
an aggravated assault charge, said
Mr. Love still has a trial pending
on that charge, as well as his
arrest for possession of marijua-
na.

driven machines help to drastically
reduce the potential of the high-
impact injuries that can result from
a more traditional exercise routine
that relies on barbells and other
heavy equipment.
A simple 30-minute circuit train-
ing program consisting of cardio
and resistance training promises
that women will see results after a
month of work. According to Ms.
Douglas, women can expect to
"see a few pounds or inches," lost.
The difference can be as subtle and
simple as "working in a yard in the
weekend and not being so sore.
Most of us are out of commission
the next day."
Ms. Douglas, who only moved
to the area this year, after her hus-
band was named assistant warden
at Glades Correctional Institution in
Belle Glade, through mutual
acquaintances, met with Mirtha
and Annette, who agreed that the
experienced personal trainer

realized. However, even if that
money was regained, the city
still faces an almost $2 million
shortfall that it will have to make
up through additional grant
opportunities in the future..
The architectural firm, REG
Architects of West Palm Beach,
presented the commission with
two options for moving forward
with the construction of the facil-
ity: One offers the city the oppor-
tunity to construct the facility
and its amenities at once, the
second option breaks the con-
struction into two, possibly three
phases of work stretched out
across years.
The firm urged the city to look
closely at both, the funding diffi-
culties of the first against the
logistics and time variables of
the second. Ideally, the city
would build all' at once rather
than breaking the project into
phases, but funding constraints
could impede that.
City Manager Tony Smith told
the commission that city staff
plans on pursuing the project
further, and hopes to provide
updates as the project moves
forward. At that time, the city
hopes to also address concerns
of management of the facility
and other issues.
"I hope that you are satisfied
with the concept," Mr. Smith told
commissioners at the meeting.
"The marina would serve as the
flagship project in the 27 corri-
dor."

helped ensure that the money
was spent where it was needed
and in the cities that were directly
affected by the storms. The
money is the "silver lining," he
said.
The presentation by the USDA
was one of two made in the
Glades, with a presentation made
in Pahokee the following day for
$1 million to fund marina
improvements and the expansion
of the sewer system to Canal
Point.

FFA: Out and about at annual convention


CLEWISTON The summer
of 2005 has been very adventur-
ous for the Clewiston FFA chapter.
In the beginning of June, several
members went to the Annual
State Convention held at the Wyn-
dham Palace Resort in Orlando
Fla. The members attending from
Clewiston were Victor Berrios,
Rita Thomson, Kim Fielder, and
Lauren Hall as well as their advi-
sor Mr. Swindle and a few chaper-
ones.
Victor and Rita were competi-
tors in state competitions. Victor
participated in the Creed speaking
contest and Rita participated in
the prepared speaking contest.
Her topic was "FFA Curbs Child
Obesity." Though neither of them
placed high enough to make it to
Nationals they did excellent jobs
in their parts. Lauren was accept-
ed in the Curticy Corps. This is
where people help behind the
.scenes and wherever they are
needed.
There were many sessions that
were dedicated to each retiring
officer. There were workshops in
between each session. In the


workshops, you learned things
about working together and lead-
ership. There was a lot that was
learned on this trip and many are
looking forward to next year's
event.
Also in June, on the 23-26, was
FLA, which is Florida Leadership
Adventures. To this event, only the
officers attended. This was locat-
ed in Hains City at a FFA Facility.
The theme was "Accept the Risk
of Leadership." They stayed in lit-
tle cabins and met in a bigger
cabin across the facility.
There were a couple sessions
a day with reflections at night.
They had hands on experiences
on how to lead, follow, and figure
things.out by thinking out side the
comfort zone. They learned what
leaders need to be leaders and
what they should possess to be
good Influences. Everything they
did, they did with teamwork. We
were all split up into groups
where they didn't know anyone
ahd were expected to cooperate
with one another. This was an
excellent experience and will not
be forgotten.

cherry, so called because of
shape, to others it's the Chinese
cherry due to striking resem-
blance to tiny Chinese lanterns
and to still others it's simply
known as the Florida cherry.. In
India, it's cultivated under the
names of West Indian cherry,
Brazil cherry and cherry of
Cayenne. The Florida cherry,
Surinam, is readily available at
almost all plant nurseries all over
the state.,
Regardless of name, the pitan-
ga or Surinam cherry, a bush-like
tree, is unusually desirable from
several standpoints.
Highly versatile in growing
habits, the Surinam cherry -
boasting fragrant blossoms and
foliage is rapidly gaining favor
in Florida landscaping. The fruit
is not only delicious raw or
cooked, it's extremely high in
vitamin C and the bright red cher-
ries act as food magnets for
some of Florida's most colorful
birds, cardinals in particular.
Surinam cherry preserves are
considered a delicacy.
.In most of Florida, except in
northern regions, the main crop
is from mid-April to mid-May,
with lesser crops in July-August.
.However, the Surinam fruits and
flowers throughout most of the
year and it's not unusual for a
large crop to appear in mid to
late Autumn.
It readily grows from seed and
will flower and fruit the second
year. Almost without exception
seedlings can be found beneath
the bushes, which are easily
transplanted and never admit to
having been moved.
Not unlike most other plants,
Surinam cherries appreciate
modest applications of a general
fertilizer and water in dry sea-
sons. And they lend themselves
to modest traditional pruning as
well as to exotic shapes and
forms. This versatile plant is ideal
used as a hedge plant.


It's well behaved and graceful
in natural-growth habits, or it can
be severely pruned in straight up-
and-down fashion, which makes
it ideal for a no see-through sight
screen. When left to its own
devices, a Surinam cherry plant
will easily, and rather quickly,
-grow into a large, beautifully
shaped many-trunked tree, big
enough to sit under and have a
picnic with cherries for dessert.
A dramatic example of a Suri-
nam tree a big one that is is
in the yard of the Hendry House
at the end of Frazier Avenue in
LaBelle. It's not only big enough
to sit under it's big. enough to
climb. Another large example of
a Hendry County Surinam tree is
next to the office complex of
Hilliard Brothers of Florida on
Flaghole Road.
And a fine example of a
screening hedge planting is at the
corner of Route 29 and Whidden
Road/County Line Road, the
entrance side of Maple Corner.
This one is kept clipped/pruned
to a fine degree, consequently its
cherries are few and far
between. However, its year-
round beauty is a joy to all who
think highly of a plant that boasts
fragrant foliage, is evergreen and
carefree.
If the Surinam cherry has any
bad habits, they're the best kept
secrets around.

The Surinam Cherry has many names, but its ultimate design
in nature is its great taste.


Are your kids



too busy?


OF


Whether it's after-school
activities, soccer practice, music
lessons, karate lessons, or a part-
time job, chances are your kids
are running to keep up with
loads of activities. But how
much is too much?
Even summer, a time once
sacred for lazy days and unstruc-
tured activity, has become just
another three months on the cal-
endar for those super kids and.
their parents who would be
remiss without a day planner or
PDA in their reach. We're left
wondering, "Whatever hap-
pened to free time?"
There are many advantages
to keeping your kids involved in
activities, particularly those that
provide regular physical exer-
cise. The childhood obesity rate
in the U.S. is of serious concern,
so getting your son or daughter
off the couch and in motion has
many health related advantages.
Then there are the developmen-
tal aspects of participating in
organized activities, such as
sports, dance, or music-social
skills are developed as well as
physical coordination.
Research indicates that kids
who are involved in sports or
other activities are more likely to
stay in school males are less
likely to get in trouble with the
law- and females are less likely
to have teen pregnancy. These
are all positives and great moti-
vation to keep your kids moving
from one activity to another.
What's too much or not
enough is unique to each child
the key is finding balance and
setting realistic expectations. Dr.
Steve Lerch, a professor of soci-
ology with expertise in sports
sociology at Radford University,
says a good Way to evaluate
whether your kids are involved
in too much or in the wrong
activities is to listen to what they
talk about.
He asks, "Do your kids ever
talk to you about things outside
* the activities they are involved
in?" If not, it's possible their inter-
ests are limited and aren't pro-
viding the interactions they need
for proper balance in their lives.

I


If kids have many diverse inter-
ests and enjoy what they do,
then as long as they're not over-
whelmed, staying busy can be
good.
The results of an annual study
performed by the Cooperative
Institutional Research Project
reports that more than 25 per-
cent of entering college fresh-
men said they felt overwhelmed
as seniors in high school. Lerch
says we should think about
where this begins. For some, it
may begin as early as that first lit-
tle league season that was cou-
pled with piano lessons and Tai
Kwan Do twice a week. Add to
that a regular school day with
homework, and you have a child
who's on the clock and trying to
keep up with a schedule that
would be considered hectic
even for an adult.
"The real danger is if the
child's relationship with the par-
ents becomes dependant on her
performance in whatever activi-
ty she is involved," adds Lerch,
"Parents' expectations can be so
high that anything other than
performance at the highest level
is considered a failure to them.
What's the motivation? Is it the
child's happiness or the idea that
whatever activity the child does
will pay off later on?"
Lerch says playing a sport or
spending a lot of time in any one
activity with the purpose of get-
ting a college scholarship or pro-
fessional contract can be very
disappointing. If the child does-
n't receive the rewards that he or
his parents were expecting,
there could be a negative effect
on him and his self-worth.
So, what's the key to finding
the right balance? These three
things can help:
Make sure your kids are
involved in activities that they
like and enjoy.
Listen to what they say and
what they don't say. You can
learn a lot by "reading between
the lines" and body language.
Schedule "free time". They
need time for play, to be creative,
hang out with friends and family
or just do nothing.

Do-It-Yourself Ideas


Lawn Ornaments
These eight adorable lawn ornaments are sure to sur-
prise and delight everyone. Imagine them in the gar-
den, on the lawn, in a flower bed or even in a child's
room. Ideal for beginning do-it-yourselfers, all that's
required is some scrap lumber, a saw, sandpaper and
paint and sealer (if they're going to be displayed out-
doors). Simply trace the patterns onto wood, cut out,
sand, paint and seal.
The completed lawn ornaments range in size from
12 to 16 inches tall.
The plan includes complete step-by-step instruc-
tions, full-size traceable patterns, materials lists and
painting guides for eight lawn ornaments.

NOTICE OF INTENTTO ISSUE A PERMIT
The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its intent to issue a per-
mit (File No. 50-0129049-010) to Pahokee Marina, to construct a breakwater
and reconstruct a previously existing fishing pier.
The project purposes to a) construct a 537' x10' (5.370 sq It) permeable rock,
breakwater to provide protection fro the existing marina, and b) rebuild a portion
of the previously existing fishing pier, which will consist of a 160' by 10' (1,600
sq. ft) access pier overthe proposed breakwater, an a 106.3'x 10' (1,063 sq. ft.)
terminal platform (2,663 sq. ft total). The breakwater will be constructed with
three 10 ft gaps to supplement water flow through the system. There shall be no
mooring authorized along the proposed breakwater or fishing pier. "No Mooring"
signs shall be placed along the breakwater and on the terminal platform of the
fishing pier to prevent moorng.
The project is located in Lake Okeechobee, Class I Waters, adjacent to 90 Lower
Lake Drive, Pahokee (Section 18,. Township 42 South, Range 37 East) in Palm
Beach County (N 260 49' 32"/W 800 40' 3").
The activity includes consideration of an application to modify an existing 5 year
sovereignty submerged land lease (430373818) by increasing the preempted
area from 401,362 square feet to539,309 square feet, more or less, to be used
in conjunction with anupland public recreational development including a camp-
ground, restaurant, and boat repair facilities.
The application is available for public Inspection during normal business hours 8:00
a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection, Southeast District Office, 400 N. Con-
gress Avenue, Suite 200, West Palm Beach, Florida 33401.
The Department will issue the permit with the attached conditions unless a timely
petition for an administrative hearing is filed under sections 120.569 and 120.57
of the Forida Statutes, before the deadline for filing a petition. The procedures
fro petitioning for a hearing are set forth below.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Departments proposed
permitting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under
sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The petition must contain
the information set forth below and must be filed (received by the clerk) in the
Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.
Petitions by the applicant or any of the parties listed below must be filed within 14
days of receipt of this written notice. Petitions tiled by any persons other than
those entitled to written notice under section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statues
must be filed within 14 days of publication of the notice or receipt of the written
notice, whichever occurs first. Under section 120.60(3) of the Forida Statues,
however, any person who has asked the Department for notice of agency may
file a petition within 14 days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of
publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indi-
cated above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition or re-
quest for mediation with the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of
the person's rightto request an administrative determination (hearing) under sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention(
in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the
presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with rule 28-106.205
of the Florida Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is
based must contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or
identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address an telephone number of the petitioner, the name, ad-
Sdress and telephone number of the petitioners representative, if any, which shall
be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an
explanation of how the petitioners substantial interest will be affected by the
agency determination;
(c) A statement of how and when each petitioner received notice of the-agency
decision;
(i) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact If there are none, the pe-
tition must so indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, as well as the rules or
statutes which entitle the petitioner to relief; and
(f) A demand for relief.
A petition that does not dispute[ute the material fact on which the Departments ac-',
tion is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall
contain the same information as set for th above, as required by rule
28-106-301.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency
action, the filing of a petition means thatthe Department's final action may be dif-
ferentfrom the position taken by it in this notice. Person whose substantial inter-
ests will be affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right
to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the require-
ments set forth above
Mediation is not available in this proceeding.
Any party tothis order has the rightto seek judicial review of it under section
120.68 of the Florida Statutes by filing a notice of appeal under rule 9.110 of the
Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure with the clerk of the Department in the Of-
fice of General Counsel, Mail State 35, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Talla-
hassee, Florida 32399-3000, and by filing a copy of the notice of appeal
accompanied by the applicable filing fees with the appropriate district court of
appeal. The notice of appeal must be filed within thirty days after this order if

,Endangered turtles may lose protections on west coast


i On August 3-5, two sub-
groups of the Pacific Fisheries
nManagement Council, which is
responsible for managing fish-
eries off the coasts of California,
,Oregon, and Washington, will
ibe considering controversial
proposalss to gut rules to protect
)endangered species. Most at risk
jis the Pacific'leatherback sea tur-
'tle,. the largest turtle in the
,world.
Environmentalists are rallying
,to the defense of the existing
'rules, which have been seen as
;an international model for pro-
,tecting marine ecosystems.
e In response to lawsuits by
environmentalists, the National
iOceanic and Atmospheric
jAgency Fisheries agency banned
long-line fishing on the West
iCoast and restricted gillnets, also
[known as "curtains of death," to
protect endangered sea turtles
,and other marine species. -
On August 3-5, the Pacific
Fishery Management Council's
iHighly Migratory Species Man-
.agement Team and Highly
Migratory Species Advisory Sub-


panel will be considering pro-
posals to reverse or. weaken
these rules putting these
species, some of which teeter on
the brink of extinction, at greater
risk of being injured or killed.
Most at risk is the critically
endangered leatherback sea tur-
tle. Estimated to be 100-million
years old, scientists now warn
that it could go extinct in the
Pacific in the next 5-30 years
unless efforts are made to
reduce the threat of being
injured or killed by long-lines
and gillnets. The number of
female nesting Pacific
leatherbacks has declined by 95
percent since 1984. The U.S.
Pacific Coast is an important
migratory route and foraging
area for leatherback sea turtles.
"These rules are crucial for
protecting the leatherback and
other marine species from being
injured or. killed by gillnets and
long-lines. Eliminating rather
than strengthening protections
for these critically endangered
turtles would be a huge and pos-
sibly irreversible mistake," said


Todd Steiner, executive director
of Sea Turtle Restoration Project.
After the Hawaiian long-line
fishery was shut down by a fed-
eral district court in 1999 for
catching too many sea turtles,.
about three dozen Hawaiian
long-line vessels flouted a gap in
federal regulations by moving
their swordfish operations to
California. Last March, NOAA
Fisheries banned California
long-lining. The closure was in
response to a decision by the 9th
Circuit Federal Court of Appeals
that the council had violated the
Endangered Species Act by fail-
ing to properly evaluate the
impact of long-lining on these
species.
According to the Pacific Fish-
eries Management Council's
Web site, allowing long-line ves-
sels fishing for swordfish to use
"circle hook" fishing gear would
.be, enough to restart. the fishery.
The "circle hook" has been
widely criticized because it is
being used although the
research has never:been inde-
pendently peer reviewed to


prove that it effectively protects
sea turtles and other marine
species.
"Allowing long-line fishing in
California again would reward
renegades who mocked the
authority of a federal court,"
lamented Robert Ovetz, PhD,
Save the Leatherback Campaign
Coordinator with the Sea Turtle
Restoration Project.
In 2001, NOAA Fisheries also
closed waters off Monterey Bay,
California, and in the vicinity
north to the 45i N latitude inter-
sect with the Oregon Coast from
Aug. I1 through Nov.. 15 in
response to the threat of a law-
suit.
The region north of Point
Conception had recently was
during El Nino years as the result
of another lawsuit in 2002 to
protect loggerhead turtles,
another species facing threat of
extinction due to mortality
.caused by industrial fishing.
Known as "curtains of death"
because they catch and kill
everything in their path, large
gillnets (also known as driftnets)


,were banned by. the United
Nations on the high seas in 1991.
Along with sea turtles, gillnets
also injure or kill sperm whales,
humpback whales, fin whales,
Steller sea lions and other threat-
ened and endangered species.
This year, 1,007 scientists
form 97 countries and 281 non-
governmental organizations
from 62 countries delivered a let-
ter to the United Nations urging
it to implement a moratorium
on industrial long-line and gill-
net fishing in the Pacific.
"There is no excuse for taking
a step back on restricting the use
of gillnets or long-lines. The first
ones to pay the price for allow-


ing more of these curtains of
death will be sea turtles and
other endangered marine
wildlife," added Ovetz.

The Sea Turtle Restoration
Project is a California-based
international marine conserva-
tion organization that works to
protect sea turtles and other
marine species in the United
States and in countries around
the world. For more information

taking initial applications for the
programs. Supporting documenta-
tion may be submitted at a later
date, but farmers wanting assis-
tance under these programs must
submit their application to FSA
offices no later than Sept. 9," said
Kelley.
Payments for this assistance are
authorized under Section 32 of the
Agricultural Adjustment Act of
August 24, 1935, which allows the
Secretary of Agriculture to imple-
ment programs to help restore pro-
ducers' purchasing power.

gram sign-up began Oct. 5, 2004.
Sign-up for the Florida Nursery
Crop Disaster Program and the
Florida Vegetable, Fruit and Tropi-

Producers in the following 56
Presidential disaster-declared
counties may be eligible for pay-
ments depending on the type of
losses due to Hurricanes Charley,
Frances and/or Jeanne (if other
counties receive the same declara-
tion for these storms, they will also
become eligible): Alachua, Baker,
Bradford, Brevard, Broward, Char-
lotte, Citrus, Clay, Collier, Colum-
bia, DeSoto, Dixie, Duval, Flagler,
Gadsden, Gilchrist, Glades, Hamil-
ton, Hardee, Hendry, Hernando,
Highlands, Hillsborough, Indian
River, Jefferson, Lafayette, Lake,
Lee, Leon, Levy, Liberty, Madison,
Manatee, Marion, Martin, Miami-


will be reimbursed on a per-acre
basis for each eligible grove. Pay-
ments will be based on the severity
of destruction in four tiers as deter-
mined by the path of the storms
and damage estimates. Each band
was established at the national
level and is being provided to each
FSA county office.
The formula will take into
account various levels of losses
generally correlating to the dis-
tance from the eyes of the hurri-
canes, the average production loss,
tree loss, and rehabilitation and
cleanup costs. Fruit from the
groves must have been marketed
in both 2003 and 2004.
Florida Nursery Crop Disaster
Program
Applicants for the Florida Nurs-
ery Crop Disaster Program must
certify the number, of nursery or
fernery acres eligible for cleanup
assistance. Cleanup consists of
debris removal and associated
activity. Eligible acres are those in
which a minimum of $250 per acre
in expenses are needed to restore
the area. The payment rate for pro-
ducers covered by insurance or
Noninsured Crop Disaster Assis-
tance Program (NAP) on any nurs-
ery or ferns in the county is'25 per-
cent of the actual dollar value of
inventory loss and a flat rate of
$250 per eligible acre for cleanup.
The program also includes plasti-
culture, which refers to production
practices for fruit or vegetables


Payments for plasticulture loss-
es will be made in three categories
based on the amount of invest-
ment and require a minimum of a
50 percent.loss in plastic/plant pop-
ulation.
Payment limitation
Each producer's payment is
limited to one $80,000 limitation
for payments subject to limitation
under these programs. Payment
rates will be five percent less for
producers who did not obtain Fed-
eral Crop Insurance, which is avail-
able from the Risk Management
Agency, or on coverage under NAP,
which is available from the Farm
Service Agency. Similar to a num-
ber of other USDA programs, pay-
ments will not be available for pro-
ducers whose adjusted gross
income is $2.5 million or higher,
unless 75 percent or more is
derived from farming and forestry.
In addition, producers will be
required to agree to purchase crop
insurance or NAP coverage for next
available coverage period for the
crop. Other conditions will apply.
FSA also has the following pro-
grams to assist producers in the
hurricane-ravaged areas of Florida:
Noninsured Crop Disaster
Assistance Progran,
