City to sell armory to hotel


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE After years
on the market, the Belle Glade
city-owned old National Guard
Armory building now seems a
few weeks away .from being
sold.
Givans and Associates, a real
estate development group, has
made an offer for the purchase
of the- site where the armory is
now located, with plans to con-
struct a hotel on the site. The


city and the company are cur-
rently working on making the
estimated $6.5 million project a
reality.
Givans and Associates, the
Connecticut-based company, is
now in the final, negotiating
stages with the city and, accord-
ing to city officials, it hopes to
have a groundbreaking ceremo-
ny followed closely by construc-
tion as early as October if all.
agreements are signed by then.
The company contacted the


city Aug. 12 with a written offer
for the purchase of the armory"
building on Main St. According
to Belle Glade City Manager
Houston Tate, the company's
$450,000 offer for the purchase
of the land, coupled .with the
economic advantages that a
new hotel could potentially
bring to the area, has made the-
project one of the city's most
eagerly anticipated projects.

FIRE & RESCUE: Belle Glade's real life heroes

armory building were previous-
ly rejected over the years as the
city dealt with companies who
either did not have the money
or the concept that the city
sought in selling its land. While
city staff and the commission
wanted to see the land sold,
they also wanted to see the
.location used to its best degree,
explained the city manager. The
hotel concept, said Mr. Tate,
contains what the city has been
searching for. "There are other-


offers," said the city manager,
"this was the best."
In their current form, the
plans' call for a hotel that can
accommodate the many drivers
that pass through the Glades
region on any given day. Rather
than use facilities located else-
where, drivers would now have
one more option in the Glades

Police arrest



shooting



suspect


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE The Belle
Glade Police Department, with
the help of the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office, has
taken a shooting suspect off the
streets. Elijah Pompey, 24, of
Belle Glade, was arrested in
connection with an Aug. 12
shooting in the city that left one
victim seriously injured with
multiple gunshot wounds.
Witnesses to the shooting
say it was Pompey who pulled
the trigger that left 24-'vear-old
Eddie Bt,\ n hospitalized. .
According to police, the
shooting occurred at approxi-
mately 1 a.m. on Aug. 12. Offi-


cers responded to Glades Gen-
eral Hospital in Belle Glade to
find the victim, Brown, suffer-
ing from multiple gunshot
wounds. After arriving at the
scene, police watched as
Brown was airlifted to St.
Mary's Hospital in West Palm
Beach for treatment of his
injuries.
Police secured a statement
from Brown before he was
transported to the coast.
Brown said that just
moments earlier, at the corner
of Southwest 5th Street and
Avenue B in Belle Glade, he
was shot. According to the vic-

Glades General Hospital back


to school bash a huge success


BELLE GLADE With a
goal of distributing 200, book
bags full of supplies to local chil-
dren, Glades General Hospital-
contacted 122 local organiza-
tions and community leaders
asking for donations of back-
packs, school supplies or funds.
"I had no doubt that the car-
ing hearts and generous spirits
of the people in the Glades
would help make this event a
success," said Terri Calsetta,
director of Patient & Public Rela-
tions, "and I was not disappoint-
ed!"
GGH collected enough sup-
plies and/or funds to fill 287
backpacks! But who could have
predicted the need would be so
great?
By 2:15 p.m. Aug: 2, the hos-'
pital front lobby was full of chil-
dren and parents for an event
scheduled to begin at 4 p.m.


Resorting to a numbering sys-
tem, each child who was in
grades K-5 and accompanied by
a parent/guardian was given a
ticket.
Wanting the children to have
more than .an opportunity to get
free supplies, GGH and the HCD
planned ways to help educate
them on the importance of
.hand-washing, proper teeth-
brushing, healthy snacking, not
sharing hats or brushes/combs
and an opportunity to get their
library card. When the gener-
ous vendors who had volun-
teered their time and materials
for the education of the Glades
children were ready to go, staff
began bringing the children to
the cafeteria in groups of five, 25
at a time.
By 3 p.m. staff was putting
school supplies in HCD bags, in
preparation for the time when


they would run out of book
bags.
At the end of the day, they
distributed 477 "bags" of some
type or others full of school sup-
plies, far exceeding the first year
goal of 200! To the many spon-
sors, vendors, benefactors and,
friends of children, on their
behalf, Glades General would
like to say thank you! These
generous people/organizations
truly made the difference in the
lives of many of our children
this year.
A special thanks to Cheney
Brothers for donating all the ice
cream and toppings, and to the
following generous hearts and
caring spirits: Everglades Trad-

Water managers expand toxin monitoring program


As result of widespread blooms
of floating glue-green algae, the
South Florida Water, Management
District has increased blue-green
algae toxin monitoring locations
and frequency throughout the
agency's 16-county region.
Beginning Aug. 22, samples will
be collected at, 41 stations every
two weeks from May to October,
.and every month from November
to April. The tests will be conduct-
ed in the Caloosahatchee and St.
Lucie estuaries, Lake Okeechobee,
the Kissimmee River and upper
*chain of lakes as well as many
canals throughout the district.
Here is a primer on blue-green
algae that you may find useful in
explaining this phenomenon:
What are blue-green algae?
Blue-green algae are natural to
the environment and are found all
over the world. They are not
unique to South Florida Water
Management District water bodies.
They are also common throughout
the state as well as in other states,
including Georgia, Texas, Alaba-
ma, Maryland, Virginia, Michigan,
Oregon and others.
What causes blue-green algae
blooms?
Blue-green algae multiply
quickly in water bodies with high
nutrient levels such as phosphorus,
particularly when the water is
warm and the weather is calm.
This proliferation causes "blooms"
of floating blue-green algae that
turn the water green. These three
ingredients warm water, calm
weather and high levels of nutri-
ents are presently fueling the


blooms in our area.
Where are the blue-green algae
blooms today?
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is experiencing
blooms in Lake Okeechobee, St.
Lucie River, Caloosahatchee River,
'C-51 Canal in Palm Beach County
and a light bloom in the Upper
Kissimmee Chain of Lakes.
Our area is not alone. Blooms
are occurring in other Florida water
bodies outside of the South Florida
Water Management District region,
such as the St. Johns River near
Jacksonville. Blue-green algae
blooms were also recently report-
ed in Michigan (Lake Huron) and
Oregon (Odell Lake).
Are blue-green algae toxic and a
health risk to humans?
It is important to understand
that some not all species of
blue-green algae can produce tox-
ins that can affect public health.
Those blue-green algae that are
known to produce toxins, do not
always do so. Little is known about
the environmental conditions that
trigger toxin production.
The blooms in South Florida
Water Management District water-
ways are caused by blue-green
algae called Mycrocystis. This blue-
green algae are not always toxic
but can form toxic strains. The
toxin called microcystin can
be a threat to fish, pets, livestock,
wild animals and humans if ingest-
ed or inhaled. However, informa-
tion regarding toxins from blue-
green algae and risks to humans,
fish and wildlife is very limited.
Currently, there are no estab-


lished state or federal guidelines for
standard toxic levels of concern.
The World Health Organization
suggests 1.0 microgram per liter for
drinking water.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is working closely
with the state Health Department
medical experts, who will provide
information regarding known
human health risks associated with
varying levels of toxic blue-green
algae. Health Department officials
recommend staying out of the
water where algae blooms are
concentrated as a precaution.
What is the South Florida Water
Management District doing about
the blue-green algae blooms?
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is coordinating
monitoring, evaluation and com-
munication efforts with local,
county, state and federal agencies
including the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection, Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission/Florida Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute,, Florida
Department of Health, St. Johns
River Water Management District,
Southwest Florida Water Manage-
ment District, University of Florida,
county governments and local utili-
ties.
The district has increased blue-
green algae toxin monitoring loca-
tions and frequency throughout
central and southern Florida.
Beginning Aug. 22, samples will be
collected at 41 stations every two
weeks from May to October, and
every month from November to
April. The tests will be conducted


uxton's &kst a aI
gg -^~ridJBI.,I7UiT.SaS i=


in the Caloosahatchee and St.
Lucie estuaries, Lake Okeechobee,
the Kissimmee River and upper
chain of lakes as well as many
canals throughout the district.
We are looking to utilize the
help of a nationally renowned
blue-green algae expert to serve as
a consultant.
Are there toxic blue-green algae
in Lake Okeechobee and the
coastal estuaries?
Elevated toxin levels ranging
from 20 to 373 micrograms per liter
were found this month in samples
collected from Lake Okeechobee,
St. Lucie River and C-51 Canal and
'analyzed by the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute. Results
from recent testing in the Caloosa-
hatchee are expected next week.
Can large blue-green algae
blooms cause fish kills?
Blooms of blue-green algae that
last more than a few months can
be harmful to lake/river ecosys-
tems and cause fish kills because of
the decrease in oxygen levels and
direct ingestion in the food chain:
How long will the blooms last?
Blooms can last days, weeks or
months, depending on conditions.
Scientists cannot predict when or
where blooms will occur or how
long they will last; the blooms will
run their course and dissipate natu-
rally.

Food additives may increase health risks


Concerns about foods contain-
ing high fructose corn syrup
(HFCS) are back in the news as
researchers link the food additive
to obesity, diabetes and heart prob-
lems.
Fruit is generally a healthy food.
Five to nine servings of fruits and
vegetables per day are recom-
mended on the USDA food pyra-
mid. And HFCS is found in a veg-
etable. So why isn't HFCS a
"healthy" choice? The answer goes
back to the issue of processed
foods: The human body is just not
designed to consume fructose in
this processed form.
When you eat an ear of corn,
you don't just consume the corn
syrup. You also consume the fiber
and vitamins in the corn. When
you consume products with HFCS,
you ingest refined sugars, without
any of the corn's vitamins or fiber,
and you consume it in a form not
found naturally.
According to the HFCS "white

Industry, "the corn wet milling
industry makes HFCS from corn
starch using a series of unit
processes that include steeping
corn to soften the hard kernel;
physical separation of the kernel
into its separate components -
starch, corn hull, protein and oil;
breakdown of the starch to glu-
cose; use of enzymes to invert glu-
cose to fructose; removal of impu-
rities; and blending of glucose and
fructose to make HFCS-42 and
HFCS-55."


Naturally occurring sugars, like
sucrose, contain fructose bound to
other sugars. But high fructose
corn syrup has been chemically
altered and contains "free" fruc-
tose. This free fructose is metabo-
lized only in the liver and as a result
can put a strain on the liver and the
heart. According to a report by the
Weston A. Price Foundation,
research indicates this free fructose
interferes wilh the heart's use of
key minerals and has been linked
to elevated cholesterol levels.
Recent university studies indi-
cate there may be a link between
consumption of HFCS and Type 2
diabetes. Type 2 is the form of dia-
betes that used to be called "adult
onset". The alarming rise in the
number of children suffering from
Type 2 Diabetes may be linked to
poor diet and consumption of too
many processed foods.
One study found that drinking
one soft drink or fruit beverage
containing HFCS per day can more


than double the risk of developing
Type 2 diabetes.
HFCS consumption has also
been linked to obesity because it
appears to promote fat storage in
the body. It's not enough to count
calories. The body processes some
calories differently from others.
Food manufacturers put HFCS
in foods because it is cheaper than
other sweeteners and because it
has a longer shelf life.
How can parents fight back?
Read labels and avoid prod-
ucts containing HFCS. You may not
be able to control everything your
child eats outside your home, but
you can control the food and
drinks in your home.
e Encourage your children to
drink milk with meals and water
between meals.
If they are old enough to be
concerned about their weight, start
teaching your children about nutri-
tion and how to make healthier
food choices.


Drainage issues part of Florida history


By MaryAnn Morris
Coastal residents are voicing
concerns about how drainage
from Lake Okeechobee affects
the Caloosahatchee and St.
Lucie Rivers. .
Drainage
issues have
long been part _
of South Flori-
da history. o
The Calusa
Native Ameri-
cans estab-
lished the first
connection Hamilton
from Lake Disston
Okeechobee
to the Caloosahatchee long
before any settlers came from
Europe'or the northern United
States. They wanted to be able
to go between Lake Okee-
chobee and the Caloosahatchee
River in their dugout canoes.
Hamilton Disston of the Dis-
ston. Saw Company of Philadel-
phia, Pa. came to Florida in 1873
and saw a fabulous opportunity
for agriculture. He gathered
together a group of investors
and approached the state to buy
the land "east of the Peace River
south of and west of." The Legis-
lature agreed on the condition
that the land be "DRAINED".
The deal was closed in 1881 and
Mr. Disston set a."-.ui his '.or:r
.An account pub.isrted in the
New,York Tirn.es, i,"Feb 18,
1881 reported that ",it rin six
months (Disston's company)
was to put a force equal to 100
men on the work" the work
in part was "to drain the land by
a canal from Lake Okeechobee
to, the Caloosahatchee River.
Another canal may also be con-
structed to the east, tapping the
St. Lucie River. These canals will
entirely drain the swamp, and
from ten to 12 million acres of
the richest land in the world will

be reclaimed." That was the
thinking in 1881,124 years ago.
A dredge boat was built in
Cedar Key, sailed down the coast
and up the Caloosahatchee
River where the dredging began,
connecting Lake Okeechobee to
the Gulf of Mexico.
The canals were dug like fin-
gers pointing south from the
Lake, the Newl River Canal, the
Miami Canal and the Industrial
Canal and the lake level fell. The
land was drained; by the
Caloosahatchee, St. Lucie, New
River, Miami and Industrial
Canals. It was, it has been for
over 100 years, and it is.
The farmland .around Lake
Okeechobee provides huge
crops of vegetables and fruit.
Sugar came later although Mr.
Disston was the first to experi-
ment with sugar in St. Cloud in
the 1880s.


A.C. Clewis brought sugar
production to the Glades in the
1920s, in Clewiston.
During World War II, Florida's
long coastline was an, easy target
for enemy ships. Before the War,
sugar cane workers harvested
Florida's sugar crop. The Federal
government wanted to assure a
steady supply of sugar. Sugar,
which was used to rianulacture
industrial alcohol, was als6
needed to preserve food. Sugar
growing was encouraged bythe
government.
The Cuban Revolution in the
1960s stopped sugar imports
from that now Communist
country.
But the mass exodus of peo-
ple from Cuba brought sugar-
growing expertise, -and the
American sugar supply was
once more secure.

CARS BUT NOT BOATS?: I live in Pahokee and would like to
address this Speak Out to the city manager. The city of Pahokee code
enforcement board is very active. One of the main things they do is
they just don't like to see cars sitting in people's yards (for whatever
reason) and they put an orange tag on it and tow it away. Well, it's
been a year now since the hurricanes came to this town and we
have had in all that time a virtual junkyard of boats, evidently aban-
doned seen at the marina right down from the viewing area of the
dike. They have been sitting there so long and no work has ever
been done on any of them. Could it be that the mayor is giving extra
attention to those people? I'd like some answers from him and want
to know why these boats are allowed to remain while my neigh-
bor's car was towed in the middle of the night because he couldn't
afford to have it fixed. Someone tell me what's right in this commu-
nity.

FLOP OR SUCCESS: I'm wondering if the city of Pahokee, city
hall, and the chamber of commerce might like to give the citizens of
Pahokee some sort of economical breakdown as to what happened
on the Fourth of July. I've heard the whole thing flopped. Yeah, it
was pretty bad, pretty poor.

PREDATOR ALERT: Attention, in. South Bay we have a young
man who is a sex predator. He likes to touch little girls and scare
them so they don't speak and he likes to steal their panties and wear
them. So ladies and girls, beware when you hang your pantiet right
on the line.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling and thanks for providing a com-
munity alert. We sincerely hope that these crimes have been report-
ed to the appropriate law enforcement agencies.

FOUR MORE YEARS: I'm a resident of Pahokee and want to
thank you for the article today and for former city manager concern-
ing the medians on Bacom,Point Road: But you failed to mention
the number one reason why the medians have caused problems.
You can walk down that street and knock on every door anrt say,
"hey do you have a problem with standing water in your driveway
every time it rains?" And that problem turns into a stinking mess
because all of the little tadpoles die and dries up and there is a con-
stant sickening smell. And the accidents are caused by standing
water. I was promised four years ago that DOT was addressing this
problem by the mayor. Four years.

JUSTICE NOT SERVED: Thanks for the Speak Out concerning
Robert Love's trial. I guess I'm ot the only one who thinks that jus-
tice was not served. Especially since there is a video tape, which
probably no longer exists butlI know of several people who have
seen this video tape, that Mr. Love himself took as he stalked and
harassed policemen around town. Obviously, the jury was not
allowed to see that videotape. And obviously The Sun doesn't give a
darn about it, or they didn't pressure to not have any negative pub-
licity for Pahokee and city hall. And your note from the editor was
sad. Since when is a news organization not interested in finding all
of the information? Why do you so easily write it off and say, "That's
not our job. We don't want to pry into this." Well, golly, it happens
all the time. Anytime there's a sensationalized trial the news media
go crazy.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling (again and again). What we
said last week, is that it isn't our job to unfairly investigate the per-
sonal lives of those performing their civic duties and stand by that
statement. If there was any evidence of tampering or other illegal
activities, we would be the first to take steps to find out the truth.
We can't speak for other news organizations. We can only pursue
the truth in the facts presented to us and offer those, truths to our
readers to make their own decisions. We do not offer stories or evi-
dence to influence our readers one way or the other. It is not the job
of a newspaper to influence, it is the job of a newspaper to inform
and in regards to Mr. Love's perilous journey; we have done so in
detail. We welcome your interpretation of the information provid-
ed, as we do those who have a different interpretation.

MORE GAS: I would like to the city commissioners of Pahokee
stop the policemen from driving these cars out of town. Why do we
have to pay for their gas like we pay for ours? This ain't right. The
city commissioners need to stop this. We shouldn't have to pay for
their gas and our gas.

Priorities; and getting them in order


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Every organization where I
hold membership is concerned
about: Membership! There have
been membership drives in serv-
ice organizations, fraternal
orders, volunteer groups, clubs
related to hobbies or other activ-
ities, and churches as well.
When people tell me about
"how things used to be" with
great attendance and all sorts of
programs, they are quick to
point out that it isn't that way
now. All of my life, I've heard
about the "good old days" and
how things used to be; and
being old enough to remember
some of the "good old days" it's
not all imagination. I have a the-
ory about what's happened and
why things seem to have
changed.
There are two parts to it: One
has to do with our lifestyle and
.the. other has to do with the
effects of an attitude in society.
Americans are supposed to work
more hours than any people n
the world. We also live in a soci-
ety where there are usually two


breadwinners in each house-
hold. It's no longer dad who
goes to work
and mother
stays home to
raise the chil- R .
dren. The S
other night, I
saw some fig-
ures on the
cost of a new
house and
know that the Rev.Samuel
mortgage S.Thomas
alone could
eat up one salary for many
households. If you have a car
payment to make, and some
other payments along the way,
that second job is a necessity.
When the weekend or the
evening rolls around, there is the
urge to collapse on the couch
and do something very, very pas-
sive. If you want to get someone
out, you'd better have some-
thing to offer and it better be
very good. It had better be aimed
at giving something; not full of
problems or heavy demands or
involve "choosing up sides" in
someorganizational squabble. A
second part of concern over
membership has to do with


commitment. Commitment
takes energy, requires time,
treasure and talent.
I have heard many times peo-
ple talk about joining and say,
"It's all the same anyway." They
will shop for cars, doctors, appli-
ances, banks, and everything
else, but not when it comes to
belonging to a group other than
to see if that's where their friends
go. Critical thinking and "try-
before-you-buy" seems sup-
pressed when there is a vague
feeling that the group-club-
church-organization does good
works, and besides they have
good suppers and share good
stories.
Those on the inside know
that there is more to it than that
but people can belong for years
before they realize just what it is
that they have committed them-
selves to sharing. In spite of
attempts o be "up front" with
newcomers, attrition rates are
still there. The answers for us all
are to try to come up with a
straightforward statement of
what we're about.
In the case where I'm most
involved, the Church, I've shared
with people that we are a reposi-


tory of values in a society where
there are fewer and fewer val-
ues. That will sometimes strike a
chord with parents who are con-
cerned about how their children
are growing up, or a newly mar-
ried couple that have decided
there must be more to life than
working overtime, or someone
who is suddenly facing a crisis
and has no answers.
For me, the answer lies within
the area where I have made a
commitment and knowing the
answer is there. Sharing that
answer can also answer why it's
worth getting up on a weekend
morning, or what is returned
when support is given.
Today, when membership is a
prime concern for many organi-
zations, my answer is "we have
something special to offer and
we'll share it with you." We have
a "product" like no other and
that makes it all worthwhile.
When we share it, membership
will take care of itself. A Lord
that started out with 12, appar-
ently wasn't overly concerned
with numbers but faith. It's
about a "pearl of great price"
and being faithful, and the rest
will follow.


Meet Your Neighbor: Mary Kendall


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza


Q: What is your name?
A: Mary Ann Smith Kendall is
my full name. I used to use the
name Mary Ann Kendall when I
first married and a very wise
gentleman who was my new
boss at the time said to me, "At
some point, you are going to
have to include your maiden
name for the
records' sake."
Very, v. ery
close intimate
friends called
me Mary Ann,
so I wanted to
continue using
.that name, but
it was too
long. My dear- MaryKendall
est friends still
call me Mary Ann.
Q: Where were you born?
A: I was born in my grand-
mother's house in rural Houston
County, Alabama, outside of a lit-
tle town called Ashford. When I
was five years old, my father
decided 'that the sharecropping
was not going to work for his
family anymore. He had been
down to Miami and worked on
dairy farms, he liked what he
saw when he would have to
come up from Miami to the
Glades area to get feed for the
cattle. He figured if he moved
here to the Glades he would
have a better opportunity to do
farm work and he wouldn't be
tied to one farmer who could
either decide his success or fail-
ure in life.
Q: What do you do?
A: I teach reading to sixth
graders at Lake Shore Middle
School.. Mostly, it's intensive
reading strategies that I use. I
would describe it as a very inter-
esting, yet challenging job that
shows daily results from the stu-
dents who are really in school to
learn to read and comprehend
better.
Q: Why?
A: I love teaching. I've always
wanted to be a teacher. During
the 80s, I felt a little like I didn't
want to go to work because I


had a lot of responsibilities with
my family and my siblings fol-
lowing my mother and father's
death. I grew through that and
became stronger and it's getting
easier and easier for me because
I'm becoming more adept at
applying the skills and strategies
for the students to learn.
I guess that the highlight that
has stayed with me more than
anything else is the way that sea-
soned teachers took me under
their wings and showed me how
to survive in a system as compli-
cated as this one is. The system
is known for chewing you up
and spitting you out and not
even looking back. I've tried my
very best to work with as many
teachers as I can, I try to moti-
vate them if I can't do anything
else.
Q: Can you describe yourself?
A: Mary Kendall is a very
compassionate, yet reserved
person who has learned that if
you really want to get something
out of life, you have tb continue
to educate yourself daily 'id not
be satisfied with yoUr accomn-
plishments, but to move forward
in new adventures so you could
do better.
(Q: Are you always
reserved?) When am I not
reserved? I am not reserved
when I am at one of Glades Cen-
tral's football games. I've had
people to see me the next day or
the next evening or the next,
week and they say, "Ms. Kendall,
I didn't know you could yell that
loud!" When I go to any track
meet, basketball game, anything
supporting the schools, I'm just
very vocal. I enjoy the game and
Iwant them to know that I am
rooting them along.
Q: What thought scares you?
A: Something that I dread is,
during my retirement years,
when I become 80 or 90 years
old, that I would not have affect-
ed a person well enough that
they will be willing to take care
of me. When my mother was ill,
I helped her, but she died at a
very young age. She was 52
when she had an aneurysm. She
left four children, the youngest


Pet Corner


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Through
observation, I feel certain that
some animals are much smarter
or more intelligent than others
of the same breed. Are there
actual tests, which measure
"animal intelligence"? Are there
any tests we can try at home?
Thanks, Doc. Your Friendly
anonymous pet observer.
A: Dear Pet Observer! That is
an awesome question, and one
that led me to do a bit of net
surfing! I know by my observa-
tions that some pets are obvi-
ously more intelligent than oth-
ers. My feeling is that genetics,
and socialization play a huge
factor. So, the answer is yes. I
did find a few sites for dog and
cat IQ tests. Of those I exam-
ined, my favorite cat IQ site is
found at: Wuzzle.org:cat IQ test.
For the dogs I preferred:, Rich-
mond pets.com: Dog IQ Test.
.The questions are a series of
tasks that you can gently chal-
lenge your pet to do, and then
you score them. Based on the
points they score, you then see
at what level you can measure
their intelligence. Maybe you
should have a third party with
you for objectiveness. I know, I
think my Sami and Luigi are the
smartest in the world. Would


you think you would agree?
Instead of a second question
this week, I thought I would
include an example question
from the IQ tests:
With your dog watching, pre-
tend. to reach for a snack and eat
it. Your dog;
A. Watches you intently as if
you are actually eating.
B. Investigates the spot from
which you took the "food" to
see if anything is there.
C. Couldn't be less interested.
D. Seems to realize you're
just pretending.
For your cat:
If you crouch, bark, and grind
your teeth, your cat:
Jumps scared on the nearest
.chair,
Becomes angry,
Looks at you inquiringly,
Yawns.
Thanks for making me learn
something new! Best Wishes,
Doc Savvy.
Be sure to listen to the Doc
Savvy Show on 95.5 F.M. every
Thursday morning at 10:30 a.m.
and e-mail your pet questions
for the Pet Corner to doc-
savvy@aol.com.


12. I had to help get them out of
high school. I wasn't in the
house with them and that made
it difficult. I tried to impact them
in such a way that they could
become mature adults. They've
done fairly well.
Q: What is your favorite song?
A: The one that is my favorite
is "Midnight Train to Georgia."
The reason I like that song is
because it's so real. Gladys is full
of emotions and she has contin-
ued to change with the times, yet
she is honest about life and mis-
takes she's made and she's faced
them head on to show how
she's recovered from them. She
is a model about how though
you may not be perfect, you can
still land on your feet and move
forward.
(Q: Is that song something
you can relate to?) It's not really
something I can relate to. If I had
a man, I don't have a man, but if
I had a man and he wanted to
leave from where we thought
we were going to make success
atid we' didn't make success, I
would follow him to Wherever it
is he wanted me to go.
Q: What irks you?
A: What really irks me is see-
ing an 18-month-old baby on the
hips of his mother, or in the arms
of his father, out on the street
corner any time of day or night.
Just standing around, loitering,
especially after midnight. Some-
times I go out of town and when
I drive back in sometimes it's
real late if I've been to meetings.
To just see those young babies,
so wide-eyed and trying to take
everything in and just seeing the
mothers swinging them on their
hips and the fathers saying,
"You're going to be a man," in
situations like that, it just breaks
my heart. I really would like us
become more responsive to the
needs of the younger mothers
who are 12, or 13 years older
than their children.
(Q: Do you feel the impulse to
talk to them, the parents?).Occa-
sionally I roll my windows
down, I've stopped and I've said,
"What are you doing here? Why
aren't you home?" A couple of


them would say, "Hi, Ms.
Kendall, I'm looking for ..." and
they would tell me. I would say,
"Well, you know the baby needs
to kind of be in the-house now."
They would say, "Yes, I'm
going." I don't know if they were
just telling me that because they
know me as Ms. Kendall.
I've had a few times where
I've been in situations and
there's been some negative
comments and behaviors and
someone in the crowd says ulti-
mately, "Don't you know that's
Ms. Kendall? You better stop
that!" There are a few of them
who seem to respect me quite a
bit.
Q: Do you remember a mem-
ory dear to you?
A: A memory that I hold very
dear to me is awaking at 4:30 in
the morning and listening to my
father sing a new song from one
of his new song books that his
sister would send him. Some-
thing like the Gospel Pearl. Back
in, Aabama they learned how to
read music because his father
was a minister. He would first of
all count the notes, he called
them shape notes. He told, us
what kind of beats the notes
-had. He'd tell you what keys the
notes were in. He would slowly
sing it for the first couple of
times and then he would come
back and do the harmony part
and he would teach us to do our
part. By the end of the week, all
of us would be singing that song.
He had a very interesting
voice. His-favorite song was, "On
Jordan's Stormy Banks I Stand."
I could almost hear him sing that
song, even though he's been
dead since 78. That's a very dear
memory to me. Anywhere that
we lived, the six-mile bend,
Okeechobee Center, Eighth
Street, I could always count on
him drinking a cup of coffee and
getting his Bible out and reading
a couple of scriptures and then
singing his song before he went
out during the day.
Wonderful. Just wonderful.

Sheriff Stuart Whiddon
announces that on Tuesday, Aug.
16, W/M Steven Anthony Pickett,
19, of Palmdale was arrested on
misdemeanor traffic charges of
Driving while License Suspended.
On Wednesday, Aug. 17 at
approximately 4 p.m. Mr. Pickett
was released from the Glades
County Jail and given a court date.
Upon Mr. Pickett's release he
walked across the street to the
Glades County Court House
where there was an unlocked
vehicle. Mr. Pickett entered the
vehicle and stole a pack of Marl-
boro cigarettes.
While in the victim's vehicle,
EMS Director Bob Jones observed
the suspect and yelled to him. Mr.
Pickett exited the vehicle and fled
south on Avenue J. Mr. Jones was
able to flag down Sheriff Whid-


don who was passing by after the
incident occurred and advised
him of the situation.
Sheriff Whiddon began to
chase the suspect who entered
the Country K Drive convenience
store in Moore Haven. Upon Sher-
iff Whiddon entering the store he
identified himself as a law

Florida employment


rates for July 2005


The state's seasonally adjust-
ed July 2005 unemployment rate
was 3.8 percent, down from the
revised rate of 4.0 percent in
June and down 0.9 percentage
point from 4.7 percent a year
ago. Florida's July 2005 unem-
ployment rate was the lowest
experienced by the state since
November 2000.
Florida's seasonally adjusted
unemployment rate for July
2005 was over a full percentage
point lower than the national
rate of 5.0 percent.
In July 2005, seasonally
adjusted nonagricultural
employment grew by 242,700
jobs over the year, growing at
3.2 percent, nearly twice the
national rate. The national rate
of growth was 1.7 percent for
.the same period.
Florida continues to see the
rate of growth exceed other
comparable states. Based on
data from June 2005, the latest
month for which comparable


data are available from other
states, Florida had the fastest
rate of annual job growth
among the 10 most populous
states.
Solid growth continued in
manufacturing's durable goods
sector, which gained 5,500 jobs
S(+2.1 percent) since last July.
Much of the growth in durable
goods was in transportation
equipment manufacturing
(+2,100 jobs, +5.0 percent).
Overall, manufacturing has
exhibited over-the-year growth
in 15 of the past 16 months and
has gained 4,300 jobs over the
year.
The Miami-Ft. Lauderdale-
Miami Beach MSA led the state
in employment growth
(+51,800 jobs, +2.3. percent),
followed by the Orlando and

tively.

AG announces reward for resolving Moore case


ORLANDO -Attorney Gener-
al Charlie Crist announced that a
reward has been offered for
information leading to the identi-
fication of the perpetrators of the
Christmas 1951 bombing mur-
ders of civil rights pioneer Harry
T. Moore and his wife Harriette.
Joining the attorney general in
making the announcement was
Frank Brunner of the Florida
Association of Crime Stoppers
(FACS) and Juanita Evangeline
Moore, daughter of Harry and
Harriette Moore.
Anyone with information that
would resolve this case is urged
to call the Crime Stoppers'
Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS (or
1-800-423-8477).
Callers may remain .anony-
mous if they wish. Should that


information lead to the killer, or
killers, of the Moores whether
living or deceased the person
providing the tip would be eligi-
ble for up to $25,000. The reward
money is being provided by
Crime Stoppers.
"There is someone out there
who knows what happened on
Christmas night, 1951," said
Crist. "Whether the reasons for
coming forward are to clear a
conscience or strictly financial,
we want to hear from those who
can help."
The announcement is the lat-
est step in the investigation,
which was re-opened by Attor-
ney General Crist on Dec. 21,
2004. The investigation, under
the direction of ihc Anorrie\ Gen-
eral's Office (o Civil Rights, has


received tips and has been assist-
ed by the cooperation of the Unit-
ed States Department of Justice.
Dozens of interviews have
been conducted in search of the
identity of the bomber or
bombers.
"I join with Attorney General
Crist in asking that anyone with
knowledge of this case come for-
ward," said Evangeline Moore."I
am grateful that he and his office
are committed to bringing clo-
sure to those of us who have had
to live with this tragedy for more
than 50 years."
Crime Stoppers is equally
pleased to lend their aid in resolv-
ing this five-decade old mystery.
"The. Florida Association of
Crinme Stoppers is pleased.to part-
ner \with the attorney general and


law enforcement to help solve
this 54-year-old crime," said
Frank Brunner, chairman of the
association's Moore Committee.
"We look forward to receiving
critical information through our
anonymous tip line that will ulti-
mately make the difference," he
added.
Harry T. Moore was Florida's
first civil rights pioneer. In 1934,
he organized the.Brevard chapter
of the National Association for
the Advancement of Colored Peo-
ple (NAACP). He fought for equal
pay for black teachers, for voting
rights for black citizens and
equality in the justice system.
Harry Moore died from the
blast while Harriette died nine
days later,.No one .was ever
charged with the crimes.


Crist warns of new scam involving bogus checks


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist warns
Floridians to avoid a new scam
that has surfaced in Florida and
at least 17 other states over the
past week involving forged doc-
uments that appear to be official
checks issued by the state of
Arkansas.
The scam can victimize indi-
viduals or businesses that cash
the checks, costing the victims
several thousand dollars. The
scam' targets individuals who
post resumes online, primarily at
the Careerbuilder.com Web site.
These individuals receive e-mail
messages that purport to be
from a European computer
company interested in hiring
them.


The "company" claims to do
business with clients in the Unit-
ed States but needs someone in
the U.S. to help process checks it
has received from those clients.
One 'of the supposed clients is
the state of Arkansas.
If the target agrees, he is sent
two forged state of Arkansas
checks made out in his name,
one for $2,800 and the other for
$2,400. The checks are high-
grade forgeries of an actual state
of Arkansas check .and may not
be detected until they are reject-
ed by a bank, by which time it is
too late. Unlike a more common
check-cashing scheme, in which
victims are instructed to deposit
a check into their own account
and then wire money from that


account, in this scam the recipi-
ents are told to cash the checks
and then wire most of the
money to the "company".
One sure sign of the scam,
Crist said, is that the recipients
are directed to avoid banks and
instead use check-cashing busi-
nesses, liquor stores or similar
businesses willing to convert the
"Arkansas" check into cash. As a
result, Florida businesses that
agree to cash the bogus checks
risk losing the entire amount
when the state of Arkansas treas-
ury refuses to honor them.
"This is yet another example
of scam artists targeting trusting
citizens in order to steal their
money," said Crist. "This scam
takes the public's confidence in


checks issued by the govern-
ment and turns it on its head.
Floridians and 'Florida business-
es should be diligent to make
sure they are not victimized by
this audacious'scheme."
According to the Arkansas
Attorney General's Office, the
scam appears to be based in
Turkey, with possible connec-
tions to Latvia aid Russia.
Arkansas is working with fed-
eral authorities to investigate,
apd has determined that so far
the scam has quickly spread
throughout the nation. While
reports of check sittings in Flori-
da have surfaced, the Attorney
General's Office has not yet
received complaints from any
victims.

Lake Area Varsity Sports Schedules


By Mark Young
BELLE GLADE If we
haven't actually done it we've
certainly wanted to. It's been a
long, hard week of working.
Hours spent staring at a comput-
er or sweating in the heat of the
Florida sun. White-knuckled
commutes, dodging incompe-
tent drivers bordering on the
realm of insanity, and trying to
talk your way out of an expensive
ticket after the typical summer
power outage killed your alarm
clock the night before, making
you late for work yet again.
The stress builds throughout
your body with the non-stop effi-
ciency of ancient Egyptian pyra-
mid .builders. Little invisible
armies of workers pounding and
grinding away at your nerves
until your very existence on earth
becomes the very symbol of
stress.
Our minds wander to the last
vacation where we climbed
aboard our temple the mas-
sage table. Or perhaps it's just
the last time we slipped onto our
throne at the local hair and nail
salon.
Wherever it is, it's just,a place
where all of our needs are taken
care of and our only worry is
knowing that the experience
won't last forever. We are left
with a sense of sadness as we
venture back into the everyday
rat race, but also with a sense of
hope that one day, soon, we will
return to Shangri-La, if only for a
moment of peace.
It's simply a day at the "spa", a
once secret place of servitude
known only to women, but
quickly becoming known to men
who once considered the spa an
alien, hostile place controlled by
women armed with hot stones
and sharp tools. But men always
wondered what really happened
behind the closed, steamy doors.
Men have quickly broken the
barrier and have discovered the
pleasures of pampering.
But now, the business of
pampering our pooches is
becoming equally popular and
specialty bakeries and groomers


are popping up with the regulari-
ty of Starbuck's Co;fee shops
along a downtown street in Seat-
tle. But what can these pooch
pampering sessions entail? Just
ask Belle Glades' own Doctor
Noelle Savedoff, a.k.a. Doc
Savvy, a well-respected veteri-
narian in Belle Glade who offers
her infamous "Pet Spa" services
to coincide with several other
unique services such as Doggie
Daycare.
Doc Savvy understands that
releasing stress from the body
isn't just about the pleasures of
being pampered, but that the
therapeutic benefits of routine
spa services are immeasurable to
the health of both humans and
animals.
"Since I love going to the spa
myself, I wanted to create a spe-
cial treatment for my patients,
too," she said.
Doc Savvy said some of the
services offered at her pet spa
include a personalized bath and
conditioning treatment, nail trim,
nail file, ear cleaning, a squirt of
specialized doggie designer
cologne, "followed by a light spa
lunch," said Doc Savvy with her
trademark smile.
The regular clients of Doc
Savvy's Animal Hospital have
known about and used her serv-
ices for some time, because it's
offered as a courtesy service to
her regular clients, but that word
is spreading and the service is
, being utilized just for the spa
experience itself. Doc Savvy gives
out certificates at her place of
business and offers them as
prizes on The Doc Savvy Vet
Show, which airs on 95.5 every
Thursday morning at 10:30 a.m.
It's a phenomenon that is
sweeping the country, but while
terminology such as pampered
pooches and doggie daycare
may lead to somebody thinking
it's all about the dogs, Doc Savvy
deals with all sorts of unique ani-
mals and her services are open
to them all.
But the treatment will also
depend on what the dog's need
may be, very much like a human
will require different treatments

Spotlight on Education


Business partnerships: Their importance


By Kay Zaccagnino
West Area Volunteer Coordinator,
School District of
Palm Beach County
Education needs to be every-
body's business. The students in
the schools today are tomor-
row's workforce. Is this enough
of a reason for you to get
involved?
What is a business partner-
ship? A business partnership is a
mutually supportive arrange-
ment between a business and a
school in which partners commit
themselves to specific goals and
activities intended to enhance
educational opportunities to
benefit students.
How do these parties commit
themselves to these activities? It
just so happens that the School
District of Palm Beach County
has created a Business Partner-
ship Agreement Form to be com-
pleted by the business, which is
agreeing to the partnership and
the school.
Who makes this partnership
-arrangement, Kay? I'm glad you
asked! This conversation takes
place between several people.
The most important being the
businessperson and a represen-


tative of the school. Sometimes,
I'm involved in the process.
Occasionally, someone from the
chamber of commerce could be
involved, or someone from a
municipality or even the school
district. It just depends on what
type of partnership is being creat-
ed. The one who is mostly
responsible for recruiting busi-
ness partnerships is the appoint-
ed school-based business part-
nership coordinator, who has
been trained at one of our dis-
trict-sponsored workshops.
Do these partnerships require
mostly money donations?
Absolutely not! Contributions are
great, don't get me wrong, but
people resources are better. Most
schools are looking for your tal-
ents. For instance, your employ-
ees are skilled in money manage-
ment, each employee spends
one hour a week at the school of
their choice teaching students
about how to balance a check-
book, creating a household,
budget, basic life skills. Better
yet, let's think bigger stock
market investments mock
Wall Street, wouldn't it be fun to
have instruction on what it
would be like to be a stock trad-
er?


Your role as a business part-
ner is to enlighten students on
the world outside of the class-
room. Think about how you can
change the lives of today's stu-
dent. Think about what you can
give back to our community.
By creating a partnership with
a school, you'll be sharing your
expertise and resources, bringing
that school up-to-date with the lat-
est technology and information.
You'll also help create an environ-
ment in which the students will be
able to prepare themselves to
become ready for the job market.
As a partner, you will have the
opportunity to assist students in
developing a work ethic and skills
that are critical for success in the
workplace. This will also help
with attendance at school. It's a
win/win for everyone.
Partnerships work for every-
one. There are three different
stages of partnerships. Support,
cooperation and collaboration.
The Support Stage isthe first
stage of partnership. You're sim-
ply providing resources to the
school. This stage is equally as
important as the other two, it lays
the groundwork for greater
involvement.
The second stage is coopera-


tion. In this stage, the business
would be communicating with
the school, participating in differ-
ent activities, taking on a leader-
ship role and sharing in decision
making. An example of this
would be developing a mentor-
ing program or a school-to-work
program.
The third and most major
stage is collaboration. This part-
ner has long-range goals that
addresses essential school or
community needs. Major
resources are committed and
there is widespread staff involve-
ment on all parts. An example of
this would be company-spon-
sored vocational instruction.
There are no real rules for
business partnerships. Creativity
is the key to making a successful
partnership. Decide what is the
best course to take when speak-
ing with the representative from
the school you have decided to
help. If it's committing your
employees to some type of tutor-
ing or mentoring program or
supplying resources, the stu-
dents in our area will benefit
greatly from your efforts. Every
positive thing that we do in our
community will help the Glades
to thrive.


Pahokee High an

international success


By Stephanie Kirchman
As a student who is deter-
mined to attend college and
succeed in life, I believe the
ultimate and most rewarding
route to choose is joining the
International Baccalaureate
Organization (IBO) at Paho-
kee Middle/Senior High
School.
The IB program is the most
rigorous education provided
for hard working students
with ambition to exceed any
expectations. It addresses all
aspects of life, categorized
into five areas of the program,
which are Community Ser-
vice, Environment, Approach-
es to Learning, Health and
Social Education, and Homo
Faber (Man the Creator). This
program is found in over 100
countries worldwide. The
International Baccalaureate
Organization was established
in 1968. Its headquarters are
located in Geneva, Switzer-
land.


This year I am currently a
junior and I am in the IB pro-
gram. My course schedule
includes many advanced
placement (AP) classes such
as Calculus, Chemistry, Eng-
lish, and U.S History, which
have been provided for IB stu-
dents. These classes will cover
many of my undergraduate
courses in college, so that I
will not have to take them. IB
makes it possible to enter a
university as a sophomore
straight out of high school.
Also, when universities
look at student profiles and
transcripts, IB students attract
more interest. The Interna-
tional Baccalaureate Program
is designed to give students a
well-rounded education
based on higher level thinking
skills, integrated curriculum,
and cultural elements prepar-
ing them for college, the out-
side world, and life.

Lady Tigers face


the unknown


By Mark Young
Under the guidance of first-
year coach Dace Mazzei, the
Clewiston Lady Tigers volley-
ball team will face several
unknown factors as the begin-
ning of net season nears.
Coming off one of the best
seasons the program has seen
in years, expectations are still
high, despite the typical prob-
lems that tend to occur when a
coaching change is made.
Thrown into the equation is the
fact that coach Mazzei has
recently arrived from Ohio and
will have to face programs that
are virtually unknown.
But despite the many prob-
lems that face this year's net
squad, the Lady Tigers are
ready to take this season one
match at a time leading up to
the mid October district tourna-
ment and return plenty of expe-
rience from last year's success-
ful season.
Senior Miranda Waddell will
be a key figure in repeating that
success, as she will be looked
to for team leadership on the
court. Also returning are sen-
iors Brittani McNeil, Krystal
Walker, and Dynisha Thomas.
The Lady Tigers will fill the
court with plenty of experience
and the athleticism of freshman
Josie Boykin, who coach
Mazzei said could make an
impact for her squad this year,
as a young up and comer, as
well as sophomore Mary Heg-
ley whose sheer athletic skills
could earn her a starting spot.


But there is much to be done
before Clewiston's season
opener against Dunbar, at
home, with a game time sched-
uled for 6:30 p.m.
"We need a lot of improve-
ment in certain areas, but as a
team, we are working very well
together," said coach Mazzei. "I
haven't seen a lot of that extra
stuff that comes with this kind
of deal. They are all very sup-
portive of one another and I'm
seeing daily improvements
because they are all committed
to working hard."
The Lady Tigers are busy try-
ing to perfect their offense, but
coach Mazzei is fairly
impressed with the passing
skills of her squad, which is the
key in launching a successful
offense. Only the start of the
season will gauge what
improvements the Lady Tigers
really need.
"We are very capable of
being a good team," said coach
Mazzei. "All we need to do is
pull all of these things we are
working on together and put to
the test what we've learned.
Right now it's hard to deter-
mine where we are at because
our test is playing against our
JV team who is very young."
That first test will come Aug.
29 against Dunbar, but the Lady
Tigers are being realistic in
approaching the regular season
as something of a test period
for when it really counts come
mid October.


Pahokee tops Tigers in Kickoff Classic


By BM Fabian
and Jeff Barwick
CLEWISTON The Pahokee
Blue Devils visited Cane Field on Fri-
day to face the Clewiston Tigers in
the Kickoff Classic and came out on
top, 21-0. The Blue Devils brought a
lot with them namely, the crown
as the reigning State Champion in
Class 2B, a lot of talented athletes,
and a huge crowd.
When theme was called with
less than 30 seconds remaining due
to a technical problem with the sta-
dium lights, Pahokee had clearly
made the case that they have their
sights set on a repeat as state cham-
pion. ,
The Tigers, clearly hoping to
rebuild after last year's disappoint-
ing 3-5 campaign, showed some
bright spots in their defensive rush-
ing abilities but have work left in
most other phases.
For Pahokee, senior Quarter-
back Robert Love completed 7-of-
20 passes for 122 yards with sopho-
more wide receiver Martavious,
Odoms catching five for 97 yards,
including a 39-yard touchdown
with only seconds left in the first
half.
Love was impressive as a dual
passing and running threat, having
also scored a one-yard rushing
touchdown on third and goal
against a stacked Tiger defense
The Blue Devil rushing attack
was led by senior Anthony Atwell
with 75 yards on 15 attempts,
including a 15-yard touchdown run
with 34 seconds remaining in the
contest. Freshman Vincent Smith
also gained 62 yards on nine carries
for the Blue Devils.
The Pahokee offensive and
defensive lines also managed to
dominate the Tiger front. Led by a
young and very big front, the Paho-
kee defense managed to hurry the

Clewiston head coach Tommy Morrell led a Tiger squad look-
ing to rebuild after a disappointing 3-5 season last year.


Tiger offense throughout the game,
and allowed very little penetration
on the other side of the ball.
The Tigers had little offensive
success in the first half. Several big
opportunities to take advantage of
great field position were lost to
interceptions and dropped passes.
The Blue Devils committed a big
turnover in the second quarter on a
fumble recovery by Tiger senior
Daniel Collins during a steamrolling
drive by the Pahokee offense. How-
ever, the Tigers failed to capitalize,
instead losing possession to an
interception by senior defensive
back Ricky Gary on a long gamble
of a pass on first and 10.
The Tigers did mount an offen-
sive drive in the third period, but ran
out of gas when they reached the
Blue Devil 19-yard line and turned


the ball over on downs. That was
generally how the game went for
the Tigers, who exhibited shaky
play with several broken plays, and
dropped passes to open receivers.
Pahokee also showed some
signs of being a new squad, getting
off to a slow start during a scoreless
first half. In fact, the Tiger defense
managed to keep the game close
by holding Pahokee scoreless
through 'the first and third quarters.
The Tiger rushing defense put for-
ward a respectable performance
led by junior linebackers Carl
Whitehead (seven tackles) and
David Pope (five tackles) and senior
Nose Tackle Pedro Diaz (five tack-
les). The run defense had a strong
game, which could have made. a
difference had the offense found its
footing against the physical Paho-


kee defense.
However, the Blue Devils ulti-
mately managed to control the
game, as they were able to keep the
offense on the field for long drives
throughout the game.
Clewiston's junior Tailback
Jamal Hubert rushed for 82 yards
on 10 carries and senior Randi Scott
added 41 yards on eight attempts.
Tiger junior Quarterback Jared
Combass was unable to get Clewis-
ton's passing game going in the
face of a hard rushing defensive
front and the speedy Blue Devil
defensive secondary. Combass dis-
played considerable arm strength,
but could not consistently get the
ball within reach for the Tiger
receivers.
Clewiston Coach Tommy Mor-
rell, beginning his third season,
said, "Well, it's evident that we have
a lot of work to do.before we are up
to an acceptable level for a Clewis-
ton team. We must improve our
line blocking, both rushing and
pass protection, and our pass
defense has got to get tough. We
made too many mental errors
tonight." .
The Tigers open the regular sea-
son Friday, Aug. 26, when Planta-
tion American Heritage visits Cane
Field in a non-district 2A match-up.
The Blue Devils will travel in
their season opener against Royal
Palm Beach on Friday.

BELLE GLADE The Glades
Day Gators treated their hometown
fans to a 40-13 victory during the
Aug. 19 Kick Off Classic with the
junior varsity and varsity clubs shar-
ing equal duty on the gridiron bat-
tlefield.
I The JV squad received the call to
play the first half and walked away
with a 20-6 when behind the run-
ning of freshman upstart Brandon
Dean who accounted for all of the
Gator scoring. Dean put up the first
points of the game after breaking
loose for 30 yards of open' real.
estate in the Gators' first drive of the
game. The two-point conversion
attempt failed, but the Gators
jumped out to a quick 6-0 lead with
8:35 left in the first quarter.
The Rams would not answer
until early in the second quarter
when a Gator pass attempt.slipped
out of the hands of the quarterback
and fell well short of his intended
target. A Ram defensive back
picked off the errant pass and
returned it 25 yards for the score,
but their two-point conversion also
failed, knotting up the game at 6-6
with 11:51 left in the second quar-
ter.
The Gators responded on the
ensuing kick off with Dean scam-
pering through the Ram special
teams unit for an 85-yard touch-
down return to put the Gators back
in front 12-6 after a second, two-
point attempt failed.
The Gator defense.was relent-
less behind freshman linebacker
Hudson Hawkins whose hard-hit-


ting intensity fortified the middle,
stifling the Ram running attack.
Dean would put the icing on the,
cake with a 45-yard touchdown run
late in the second quarter and Gator
quarterback Coleman Sample
connected with Clay Crissman for
the two-point conversion to seal
their 20-6 victory over the JV Rams.
The Rams conducted one last
desperation drive, but that drive
ended when Gator defensive back
Cody Davis picked off a Ram pass
to secure the Gatorvictory.
The clock and the scoreboard
were cleared for the two varsity
squads who look over the second
half action and after exchanging
possessions to open the game, it
would be the Gators who would
strike first. If there was any doubt
that junior Gator quarterback Josh
McGregor could resume a potent
Gator air attack, following the grad-
uation of their 1,800 yard passer
from year ago, McGregor ensured
Gator fans that there is plenty of
excitement to come.
McGregor led a precision air
attack against the Ram secondary
with a 30-yard strike to Andrew
Boccanfuso and a 20-yard strike to
Ricky Reitz. Boccanfuso had also
hauled in a 26-yard touchdown
pass, but it was called back on a
penalty, McGregor hit Frank Lugo
on a nine-yard connection before
his 20-yard hook up to Reitz set the
ball up .on the Ram one-yard line
and Lloyd Monds took care of the
rest with a one-yard plunge for the
score.
Dustin Anaya drilled the point


after attempt and the Gators went
up 7-0 with 6:22 left in the third. The
Rams were determined to test their
own air campaign, but a Gator
defensive secondary would have
nothing of it and put the Rams out
after three plays on their ensuing
drive. The Gator offense went back
to work on their own 43-yard line,
but wouldn't stay there for long.
Ismael Ceniceros broke free for
34 yards to set up the Gators on the
John Carroll 21-yard line but back
to back penalties pushed the Gators
back to the 36, but that was no
problem for McGregor who subse-
quently connected with Andrew
Joseph for a 36-yard strike. The
Gators went up 13-0 with 4:08 left in
the third after a low snap forced
Joseph, who-also holds for the kick-
er, to attempt a two-point try, which
ultimately failed.
Glades Day would strike again
early in the fourth quarter when
McGregor picked off a Kevin
O'Brien pass and returned it 17
yards to the Ram 33-yard line. Lugo
picked up 11 yards on the first play,
McGregor hit Travis Hendry for a
dozen yards on the second play,
and Lugo punched it in from eight
yards out on the third play of the
short drive. Anaya drilled the point
after and the Gators claimed a 20-0
advantage with 11:38 left to play.
John Carroll took advantage of a
Gator fumble midway through the
final quarter and drove from their
38-yard line to pay dirt with O'Brien
connecting with Dave Lineburg
from nine yards out to cap the drive.
But with 2:37 left to play, the


Gators would run out the clock to
secure the varsity 20-7 victory and
the overall 40-13 win.
"I saw a lot of good things
tonight," said Gator head coach
Craig Dobson. "We distributed the
ball to everybody on offense and
the defense played superbly. Our
offensive line locked on tonight and
punched a lot of nice holes."
Coach Dobson was happy with
his squad's overall performance,
but expressed some concern in
secondary's pass coverage.
"I have some concern about our
pass defense," he said, "And we
didn't get any sacks tonight and did-
n't really get a lot of pressure on the
* quarterback. They threw the ball a
lot tonight and when you throw
that many times, you are going to
have to some completions."
The Rams went to the air 23
times with O'Brien completing
eight passes with one TD and one
pick. Through a flurried air attack,
the Rams only mustered 43 yards of
passing.
McGregor had seven comple-
tions in a dozen attempts for 141
yards, had one TD pass, and one
interception for two quarters- of
play.
The Gators will officially open
the season on the Road, Aug. 26, as
they make the three and a half hour
trip to Eustis.
"They are saying that we can't
go up and their win," said coach
Dobson to his team after the game.
"I'm telling you that we aren't going
all the way up there to lose."

Terriers struggle at Kick Off Classic; blanked by Brahmans


By Mark Young
It took all of 11 seconds for
the Okeechobee Brahmans to
score their first touchdown after
Moore Haven won the coin toss
but opted to defer to Okee-
chobee who gladly took the
opening kick 78 yards for the
score. Okeechobee's Rashad
Kelly hauled in the kick off at the
22-yard line, ducked and dodged
through a sea of black jerseys,
and was untouchable after find-
ing enough daylight to make it a
sprint to the goal line.
Moore Haven's Nathaniel
Sanders blocked the point after
attempt, but the Brahmans
jumped out to a 6-0 lead with
11:49 left in the first quarter.
Sophomore Jerrell Smith
almost returned the favor after a
25-yard kick off return set up the
Terriers on Okeechobee's 35-
yard line, but the Brahman
defense set the early tone and sti-
fled the Terriers up front. Moore
Haven attempted to convert on a
fourth and four play, but came
up two yards short.
The Brahman defense quickly
turned the ball over to their
offense who marched 73 yards
on a 3:12 drive, highlighted by a
59-yard run from Kenny Spencer
who eventually capped the drive
with a three-yard plunge. Moore
Haven's Jyles Langdale blocked
the kick, but the Brahmans
opened up a 12-0 lead with 6:20
left in the first.
Moore Haven put together
their best drive of the day in
response with Smith and Barrett
Ringstaff providing much of the
work out of the backfield. After a
short kick, the Terriers marched
from their own 40-yard line all
the way to the Brahman 24.
Moore Haven's Huggins
dropped back for his first pass
attempt of the game and found
Brahman linebacker Codey
Storey instead, who subsequent-
ly took the interception 65 yards
in the other direction. A holding
penalty after the pick, brought
the ball back to the Terrier 49-
yard line and after driving to the
Terrier 10, returned the favor
with a fumble.

Moore Haven's Ronald Huggins puts a potential punt block-
er on his back, giving Barrett Ringstaff just enough time to
get the punt away during last Thursday's Kick Off Classic.

both Moore Haven and Okeechobee following a joint post-
game gathering. Coach Ringstaff offered thanks to both
teams for their display of sportsmanship and class.

relentless Brahman defense lead with 4:55 left in the first
drove the Terriers back to their after failing to complete a two-
own one, where they were point conversion attempt. Moore
forced to punt. Okeechobee Haven put the ball on the ground
resumed offensive operations on on their next possession, allow-
the Moore Haven 34-yard line ing the Brahmans to set up shop
and after two long runs from on the Terrier 24-yard line.
Spencer and Kelly, Timmy Okeechobee responded


quickly to the opportunity with a
24-yard TD reception.
The Brahmans duplicated
their efforts in the second half,
following an exchange of
turnovers. Okeechobee's Rafe
Erwin recovered a fumble on
Moore Haven's opening second
half drive, but Moore Haven's
Ringstaff picked off a Conrad
pass.
Moore Haven drove to Okee-
chobee's 18-yard line where they
were halted on a fourth and
short conversion attempt by a
stubborn Brahman defense. The
Brahmans drove 82 yards, high-
lighted by a 64-yard run, and
capped the drive with a five-yard
score and the two-point conver-
sion for a Brahman 34-0 lead
with 4:11 left to play in the third.
The Brahmans would score
again to round out their 41-0 win
over the Terriers.
Moore Haven is looking to
improve upon their 3-6 record of
a year ago and the good news is
that Kick Off Classic doesn't
count, .but the bad news is that
there is work to be done.
"We have a lot of work to do
on the offensive front," said
coach Ringstaff. "Our offensive
scheme is fine, but the execution
of the offense needs a lot of
work. We just have to step up
and get it done. Our younger
players have to step up and fill in
roles. We are asking them to
grow up fast."
Moore Haven's biggest chal-
lenge will be overcoming the
morale buster of a 41-0 loss, as
they look at a much-improved
Lake Placid team as their home
opener Aug. 26. The Dragons
concluded last season with a 1-9
record, but coach Ringstaff said
they will come to play when they
arrive to Terrier Field.
The Terriers have a solid
opportunity to open their season
with a strong statement, as they
play host to the first three games
of the years. They will face Lake
Placid, Frostproof, and Christian
out of Jacksonville as their first
three opponents. The three
squads have a combined record
of 9-21.
Lake Placid's only victory last


year came against the Terriers in
a 37-7 victory. The Terriers will
face some familiar district foes in
St. John Neumann and Evangeli-
cal, but adds Glades Day to their
district rivals this year. Moore
Haven defeated St. John last year
and lost to Evangelical.
Other familiar opponents
from last season include Ben-
jamin, who Moore Haven beat
44-14 and LaBelle who defeated
Moore Haven 42-13.
The Terriers averaged more
than 20 points a game last year,
but improvements on the offen-
sive line will be needed to put up
the kind of numbers Moore
Haven scored last year. The Terri-

Affo1rdable


er defense allowed more than 27
points per game and the ratio
obviously led to the 3-6 season a
year ago.
It's difficult to judge a 41-0
defeat at the hands of a larger
school like Okeechobee who is
now 4A compared to Moore
Haven's Class A status. District
competition will determine
where the Terriers truly stand
and they host two out of the
three district games. Shaking off
the 41-0 loss in the Kick Off Clas-
sic will also be a gut check for
the Terriers who have an oppor-
tunity with three consecutive
home games as the official sea-
son gets ready to get underway.

Raiders prepare for their season opener


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza

BELLE GLADE Raider Head
Coach Willie Snead said it feels
good to be at the helm of the
Glades Central football team, the
coach having, roots dug deep in
Belle Glade.
He remembers his own ascen-
sion in the football world, starting
with humble beginnings in Belle'
Glade and leading all the way to
the pros. With the opportunity to
lead the Raiders this year, Coach
Snead is taking all that he's
learned, and applying it to the
young players now under his
watch.
The coach says he is faced
with guiding a young team this
year, with plenty of-new faces.
Though wide-eyed and excited,
the players have been applying
themselves in preparing for the
new season, the coach said, start-
ing practice as early as spring in
anticipation of the fall.
As he heads into the new sea-
son, Coach Snead is pushing one
thing more than anything else -
the fundamentals. The coach said
the Raiders in the past two years
have performed exceptionally,
but, entering the playoffs, the
team is sometimes unable to per-


form as it has during the regular
. season.
Last year, the Raiders went 10-
0 heading into the playoffs,
,defeating the Pahokee Blue Dev-
ils, before losing in the playoffs.
The Devils eventually won the
state championship title in their
division.
Coach Snead is no stranger to
the Glades, having graduated
from Glades Central High School
before moving on to college and
then the pros, drafted by the Jets
and playing for the Houston Oil-
ers at one time.
"Some of us here have been at
the highest level and we can
share that with our players," he
said. In fact, the coach said, some
former Raiders still come back
from time to time to work with
the players, including, among
others, Ray McDonald.
Though the team is young, the
coach notes the fact as one of the
strengths of the football team, as
players preparing for their first
run in varsity display the hunger
and the energy and the determi-
nation that, the coach said, will
factor heavily in winning games.
Already, the coaches are keep-
ing a close eye on a few stand
outs on the team, including jun-


ior running back Deonte Thomp-
son, quarterback Bryan Mann
and running back Aston Samuels
- players the coaches feel will
pla\ a Fpi.:tl ,i in tbie team's
success.
The coach fully realizes the
expectations that the community
has for the football team, and he
hopes to make the community
proud, but, at least -during prac-
tice and among the head coach-
es, living up to expectations is not
heavy in the minds of staff, he
said. It all boils down to practic-
ing and focusing on the simple
fundamentals, coach Snead said.
Everything else, he believes, will
fall into place.
Of course, having a good
coaching staff goes a long way,
also, coach Snead said. Of his
staff, he remarked, "They are just
outstanding. This is the best
coaching staff I've ever had. They
are passionate and energetic and
we don't coach with our hands in
our pockets. It's a good situa-
tion."
Last week, the team prepared
to face off against Royal Palm
Beach and this week faces Palm
Beach Central High School.
Coach Snead said. he expected to
do well in both games.


Coach Stephen Fields, a new
addition to the team this year, is
optimistic. "These kids want to
-be loved,, coached,,"' said Coach-
Fields., "They're definitely
focused. The coaching staff does
not accept mediocrity."

Lohmann takes gold at Junior Olympics


On Thursday, Aug. 4, Brianna
Lohmann, a gymnast at Royal
Gymnastics in Wellington and a
resident of Belle Glade, compet-
ed in New Orleans at the Junior
Olympic Games with a gold
medal finish.
Hundreds of gymnasts from
around the country traveled to
the Municipal Auditorium at the
edge of the French Quarter for
this national competition. By 7
a.m. the gymnasts were warm-
ing up and getting ready to com-
pete. Lohmann's first event was
the floor exercise, which she
completed with a score of 9.25.
The performance irritated an
old heel injury causing a notice-
able limp, but she decided to
continue to compete. She then
moved to the vault where she
scored an impressive 9.5. She
scored a 9.1 on the bars, her
third event, and she closed her
competition with a strong 9.6
routine on the beam.
At the awards ceremony, the
23 competitors in the 11-year old
division had no idea how they
lid placed in the events. The
vault results were called first and
Lohmann was excited to hear
her name announced as the gold
medal score. She went on to
claim the silver medal on beam,


the bronze medal on bars, and
6th place on floor. She finished
with a total score of 37.4, which
was the highest for her division
and allowed her to capture the
overall gold..She was admittedly
very excited about her accom-
plishment and commented,
"This is so cool! I guess hard


work really does pay off!"
Brianna is a sixth grader at
Glades Day School, and her
mother, Angee Lohmann,
grandmother, Frances Adams,
sisters Lizzee and Hana
Lohmanp and friend Sara Lez-
cano accompanied her on the
trip.

itoring the growth of the city over
,the next few years, and with an
eye on further economic develop-
ment, it now becomes necessary
to fill the vacant position, the city
manager said.
According to the general job
description, the public safety
director formulates long-range
goals for the organization and is
responsible for organization,
staffing, supervision, planning,
policy and budgeting, among
other duties.
"The duty of police is to pro-
tect and serve," said Mr. Tate. "It is
very important that we improve
its structure and function."
Another of the duties that will
fall on the public safety director,
according to the city manager,
will be code enforcement, an area


that you'd like to share with the
community? Do you dance, par-
ticipate with a step team, sing,
,recite poetry or do praise
dances? If so, we want you to
come and show off your talent
and win great prizes for each
category. If you are interested,
please contact Mrs. Jessie Terry
at (561) 202-7701 or Mrs.
-Lawanda Harper at (561) 924-
3126.

Post-hurricane
counseling
The Youth Service Bureau, a
program of Palm Beach County
Division of Youth Affairs, serves,
children from birth through age
17 and provides individual and
family counseling at no cost to
families in Palm Beach County.
As hurricane Frances and its
aftermath has heightened the
problems and stress level for
families in Palm Beach County,
the Youth Service Bureau wants
to reach out to those families
and offer the help of licensed
therapists who will listen to


building a Howard Johnson
Hotel. The offer by the company
came just a few weeks before
Belle Glade city officials first
mentioned-the possibility that
the company sought to locate its
hotel in Belle Glade.
Commissioner John Wilson
of South Bay had been working
with the company in attracting it
to the area. Commissioner Wil-
son publicly expressed disap-
pointment with his commission
when the board agreed to con-
tinue to meet with the company
to review plans rather than fol-
lowing his suggestion that the
city should accept the proposal
immediately after it was submit-
ted.
The commission agreed with


that the city wishes to expand on
and use to give the city a generally
cleaner appearance. By targeting
businesses and properties in vio-
lation of code, the city should
appeal to more people as housing
developments concurrently take
off in Belle Glade.
"Code enforcement is going to
keep him busy," Mr. Tate said.
A five-member committee of
volunteers, including Mr. Tate
himself, ranked the three finalists
recently, scoring the candidates in
areas such as work history, job
performance, education, deci-
siveness and motivation and lead-
ership.
The city manager said he was
extremely satisfied with the
response the city received for the
job and said that the committee


their experience and help them
cope. Any parent or adolescent
needing help should call the
Youth Service Bureau office at
992-1233 (Glades) to obtain an
appointment.

the concept and urged staff to
work with Mr. Wilson and
Givans and Associates. A meet-
ing between all parties was
expected a few weeks after the
commission discussed it.
At the initial meeting in July,
Commissioner Wilson said that,
should South Bay not enter into
an agreement at once, there
existed a possibility that the-
company would look to Belle
Glade for its location. "-
The Belle Glade commission
approved the motion Aug. 16 for
the sale of the land, subject to
the final agreement.
"We don't want to rush any-
thing," said Mayor Steve Wilson,
"but we want to make sure
we're. not dragging our feet."


with charge over the ranking did
an excellent job in their roles in
the process.
Currently Robert Murrhee,
Kenneth Holley and Daniel Crist
are in the running, with Kenneth
Holley ranking first, followed by
Murrhee and finally Crist.
Mr. Tate, who has final say over
the new appointment, will review
the interviews conducted and
hopes to have a selection soon,
possibly by the next city meeting.


search- of Pompey. A few days
after the incident, Brown was list-
ed in stable condition at the hos-
pital.
Last week, police were inter-
ested in hearing Pompey's side of
the story and hoped that he
would turn himself in to the
authorities. The police depart-
ment continues its investigation
of the case.
Police found their man Aug.
21, when Pompey was arrested
by the Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office. Pompey faces the
charge of attempted murder for
his involvement in the shooting
incident.

The Judge ruled that, "THE COURT CAN'T
ORDER THE HOSPITAL TO PRODUCE DOCUMENTS
THAT DON'T EXIST, EVEN IF THEY SHOULD HA\E
EXISTED."

The hospital admitted in court that:
* It doesn't have bids or appraisals for a $750,000
real estate deal, (another sweetheart deal).
* It doesn't keep detailed financial records and
* It doesn't know if it's making or losing money
in any individual department.

The hospital's largest vendor, Physical Therapy
Dynamics:
* Is owned by the wife of the hospital board


chairman,


* Is paid more than $400,000 a year,
* Possesses a no bid, automatic renewing contract
and
* Has its rent and overhead expenses paid for by
your tax dollars.


THE BOTTOM LINE--


Tax dollars that should be used to improve our community's hospital and build new
facilities are being wasted by gross mismanagement.

COURT RULING DID NOT "CLEAR" HOSPITAL

SUSPICIOUS LACK OF IMPORTANT RECORDS SHOWS
QUESTIONABLE MANAGEMENT

The hospital's failure to keep detailed financial records makes it impossible to determine how the
taxpayers' $4.5 million a year is being spent.

U.S. Sugar filed a lawsuit demanding that public records, showing how taxpayer dollars are spent, be

USDA reminds producers of


their sign-up deadlines


Farm Bureau urges focus on

plight of Panhandle farmers


GAINESVILLE State Execu-
tive Director Kevin Kelley urged
farmers and ranchers to sign-up
for the Crop Disaster Program
(CDP) and Livestock Assistance
Program (LAP) in advance of the
approaching deadline.
"These programs have
helped thousands of producers
recover from the devastating
effects of severe weather in
counties that have received a
Presidential disaster declara-.
tion," said Kelley. "I encourage
all eligible farmers and ranchers
to enroll in these programs now
before the sign-up periods close
in order to participate and
receive this valuable assistance."
For the CDP 2003 and 2004,
the sign-up deadline is Sept. 9,
2005. For the CDP 2005, the
enrollment period ends Dec. 16,
2005. The CDP provides assis-
tance to producers who suffered


2003, 2004 or 2005-crop losses
as the result of damaging weath-
er or related conditions. The
2005 crop losses are limited to
those losses caused by a.hurri-
cane season in counties that had
a Presidential disaster declara-
tion. Nearly $2 billion has been
paid to producers since sign-up
began in mid-March 2005.
Producers can receive disas-
ter benefits for crop losses for
only one of the 2003, 2004 or
2005,crop years. However, if a
producer has been paid a CDP
payment for a 2003 or 2004 crop
loss. and is subsequently
approved for a CDP payment for
a greater 2005 crop loss, the
amount of the 2003 or 2004 pay-
ment will be deducted from the
2005 payment and the difference
will be paid to the producer.
The sign-up period for LAP
2003 and 2004 ends Sept. 9,


2005. The LAP provides pay-
ments to livestock producers for
grazing losses that occurred in
2003 or 2004 if the producers'
grazing lands are in counties
declared primary disaster areas
under Presidential or Secretarial
declarations. Livestock produc-
ers in contiguous counties are
not eligible. Payments to produc-
ers enrolled in LAP are expected
to begin in late summer.
USDA has also made other
programs available to assist
farmers and ranchers, including
.the Emergency Conservation
Program, Federal Crop Insur-
ance, Noninsured Crop Disaster
Assistance Program and emer-
gency loans.
USDA's Web site, http://disas-
ter.fsa.usda.gov/, provides pro-
ducers with one. convenient
location for details on new and
existing disaster assistance.


GAINESVILLE Florida Farm
Bureau is urging the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture to help resi-
dents of the Florida Panhandle
who are still suffering from dam-
age to crops and infrastructure
resulting from Hurricane Dennis,
which made early-season landfall
July 10,2005.
Farmsteads in Santa Rosa,
Okaloosa, Escambia and Franklin
Counties bore the brunt of the
storm and farmers there are
struggling to repair and rebuild
structures as the harvest season
draws near.
"Emergency funding from
USDA is critical," said Florida
Farm Bureau President Carl B..
Loop Jr. in a letter to USDA Secre-
tary Mike Johanns. "It is my
understanding that over $40 mil-
lion of the previously allocated
Section 32 hurricane disaster
funds for Florida remains after all
other hurricane damage claims


have been settled from 2004. I am
hopeful that you will consider
using a portion of this remaining
allocation to fund this request."
Loop said Florida Farm
Bureau, the state's largest general
interest agricultural organization,
is emphasizing the plight of West
Florida farmers. Santa Rosa
County was the hardest hit in
Florida with farmers losing about
half of the cotton crop and virtual-
ly all of the of bean, corn and pea
crops. Santa Rosa also lost an esti-
mated 40 percent of pine trees
planted under the USDA's Conser-
vation Reserve Program.
Okaloosa and Escambia Counties
lost 25-40 percent of the cotton
crop. Other crops were also dam-
aged, as was the oyster industry
in coastal communities, particu-
larly in Franklin County.
On July 25, 2005 those counties
were declared federal disaster
areas, along with Bay, Calhoun,


Gadsden, Gulf, Hernando,
Holmes, Jefferson, Lafayette, Leon,
Liberty, Madison, Taylor, Wakulla
and Washington Counties.
Florida Farm Bureau wants
USDA and other government agen-
cies to keep focused on the fact that
the effects of Hurricane Dennis are
still being felt, said Loop.
"I appreciate any assistance
you can provide to further allevi-
ate the pain being felt by the farm
families impacted by Hurricane
Dennis," he told Johanns.
Loop praised USDAs immedi-
ate response in the wake of Den-
nis. The USDA's Food and Nutri-
tion Service procured USDA food
commodities for mass feeding in
shelters and worked in partner-
ship with nonprofit agencies
including the Red Cross and Salva-
tion Army. Local USDA offices also
obtained formula, food and water
specifically for feeding infants in
the Florida hurricane shelters.

March of Dimes Florida awards grant to UF Florida


GAINESVILLE To help edu-
cate health care professionals
about the importance of folic acid
in women's diets, the March of
Dimes Florida Chapter has award-
ed a $49,400 grant to the Universi-
ty of Florida.
The funds are being used by
the Florida Folic Acid Coalition,
based in UF's food science and
human nutrition department, to.
encourage women to take 400
micrograms of the vitamin every
day to help reduce their risk of
having a baby with serious birth
defects of the brain and spine,
also known as neural tube
defects.
Gail Rampersaud, a registered
dietitian and assistant in nutrition
research and education at UF's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences, said an estimated 50 to
70 percent of neural tube defects
could be prevented if all women
of childbearing age took folic acid


every day. She said research
shows the vitamin may also
reduce the risk of other types of
birth defects, including defects of
the heart, face and limbs.
Despite ongoing education
efforts, less than one-half of
women age 18 to 45 years in the
United States and Florida take
folic acid on a daily basis. Ram-
persaud said healthcare providers
are a vital link in helping promote
folic acid awareness and use
among women in Florida.
"However, a survey of health-
care professionals in Florida
found that less than two-thirds of
pediatricians and family physi-
cians in Florida knew the specific
folic acid recommendations, and
one-half or fewer recommended
folic acid to their female patients
of childbearing age all or most of
the time," she said. "These data
indicate a need for ongoing and,
continued education of health-


care providers regarding folic acid
health benefits and recommenda-
tions."
With the help of the March of
Dimes grant, existing folic acid
.educational materials will be
updated and training will be con-
ducted at healthcare sites in Flori-
da. Rampersaud said the coalition
will also develop a Web-based
training module on its Web site
http://www.FolicAcidNow.net.
Other educational activities-
include staffing exhibit booths at
healthcare provider meetings in
Florida to distribute materials,
producing and distributing folic
acid newsletters to healthcare
providers in Florida, and distribut-
ing folic acid "starter kits" to
healthcare providers for their
patients.
Rampersaud said the starter
kits include multivitamins with
folic acid along with other folic
acid-themed items. The effort is


being coordinated with the
statewide VitaGrant project
(http://www.doh.state.fl.us/fami-
ly/mch/vg/vg.html), a three-year
program spearheaded by the
Florida Department of Health and
March of Dimes Florida Chapter
to distribute 450,000 bottles of
free multivitamins containing
folic acid to underserved women
in Florida.
"Almost 50 percent of the preg-
nancies in the United States are
unplanned, so women need to
take folic acid every day," Ram-
persaud said. "Women can readi-
ly meet folic acid intake recom-
mendations by taking a
multivitamin with folic acid or eat-
ing folic acid-fortified grain foods.
Women also should eat foods
containing the natural form of
folic acid called food folate -
including orange juice, dark green
leafy vegetables, legumes such as
dried beans and peas, and straw-


berries." amin containing folic acid every

The company agreed to pay up
that amount in restitution and debt
forgiveness, stemming from activi-
ties that claimed 37,000 victims in,
Florida.
With 43 retail outlets across the
state, FloridaAuto Loans sold travel
club memberships offered by
Nation Safe Drivers, Inc., to more
than 37,000 consumers between
January 2001 and May 2004. In
many cases, Florida Auto Loans
forced customers to add $200 to
$900 travel club memberships to
the price of a title loan. Victims are
receiving a mailer from Direct Mail
Express, a company hired to con-
tact the 37,000 victims in this case.
"Companies must deal fairly
with our citizens, especially when
those citizens come to them in
need," said Crist. "For a company
to tack on unwanted travel club


memberships adds insult to injury.
Florida Auto Loans duped Florida
consumers, and now the company
must pay for it."
Florida Auto Loans has agreed
to pay up to $3.5 million in restitu-
tion and to forgive more than $2.1
million of outstanding consumer
debt. Consumers may be able to
receive up to 100 percent of their
money back, depending on the
number of consumers who. seek
restitution from the settlement
fund, Under the settlement, the
company will not sell any products
or services in conjunction with
payday loans without permission
from state regulators.
The attorney general's investi-
gation into the con1pany's con-
sumer lending practices was
opened in November 2003 at the
request of the state Office of Finan-
cial Regulation.
Floridians who obtained a title
loan from Florida Auto Loans
between January 2001 and May
2004 may be eligible for restitution
for sums paid for a Nation Safe Dri-
vers travel club membership. Con-
sumers with additional questions
should call the company toll-free at
(800) 922-8803.
